Williston Sinkhole 3ABronson FFA 1B Williston Middle FFA 1BBell Says his Business Background Has Made Him a Better Commissioner By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 4 Levy County Commissioner Ryan Bell was raised in the business world as the son of Chieand restaurant owners who taught him the value of a dollar early in life and the importance of managing money. He used their advice, plus his own economic skills and hard work to operate and found many restaurants. e basic success in business is hard work, he said. You just have to buckle down and get to work. If you never worked an all-nighter youve probably never been in business. Bell said his business work ethic inuenced him as a county commissioner. He says he knows how to stretch a dollar and manage the countys budget while at the same time keeping in mind that government work is all about Jamie Grin Says He Will Bring Business Skills to the County Commission By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 4 Levy County Commission candidate Jamie Grin became a Bronson businessman at a young age and he says he has used those skills over the years to create jobs and build businesses that added to the countys tax base. He says he will bring those same business skills to the county commission. e rst business he developed out of high school was an open-air skating rink in Bronson. A year later he built a skating rink (with walls) in Chieand that he later converted to a bowling alley. Grin, the only Democrat running for the county commission, currently owns the Bronson Restaurant, Betts Big T in Chieand and the Sea Breeze Restaurant Lilly Rooks Feeling Much Better After Blood Clots; Ready to Serve By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDistrict 4 Levy County commission candidate Lilly Rooks is attempting to retake the county commission seat she lost in 2010, and is recovering from three blot clots that almost killed her at the start of her campaign a couple months ago. She was upbeat and looked healthy when she walked up to greet a reporter at the door of her daughters home in Rosewood. She said good medicine, prayers and her faith brought her back from the brink of deaths door. Rooks thanked everyone who oered prayers for her recovery and those who showed support in other ways. She has been receiving physical and speech therapy at home for the past six weeks. She says she gets better every day. It will be up to the Lord if He wants me to be there on the county commission, she said. If not, hell open other doors. Bronson Council Tentatively Adopts Property Tax Increase By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town Council members Monday tentatively approved an increase in the property tax millage rate with the understanding that they can always go back and lower it before nal adoption of the 2014-15 budget. e council agreed to raise the millage rate from 3.6575 to 5.0166, an increase that would generate about $40,000 of additional property tax revenue over the current years budget ending on Sept. 30. Under state law, the council can adopt the tentative millage and lower the number later in the budget process, but the millage cant be raised any higher. We can always go down, said Councilwoman Beatrice Roberts in making the motion. e vote was 4-0.

James Byrd 67, Bronson, was sentenced to 25 months in state prison after pleading no contest to pleading no contest to felony battery on Levy County sheris deputy who was responding to a disturbance. Byrd was given credit for 139 days served in the county jail. Court records said the incident occurred on Feb. 28 when deputies Lauree Allen and Samuel Quincey arrived at Byrds home. When Byrd climbed out of his vehicle, Allen ordered him to return to the vehicle. He refused and started to walk toward her. She took him by the arm. He turned and struck on the right side of her face. Allen and Quincey took him to the ground and tried to handcu him, but he continued to resist. e ocers prevailed and placed Byrd in the patrol car, but in the process of arresting him both ocers were struck. Allen was hit on the face and Quincey was struck on the leg. A second criminal case was factored into the sentencing. Byrd had been convicted of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14 years of age and went to prison in 1985. During the investigation of the disturbance on Feb. 28, family members disclosed that Byrd owned rearms and they were afraid of him. Byrd was a convicted felon. He was arrested for being a felon in possession of a rearm. Jennifer Lynn Markham 40, was sentenced to 270 days in the Levy County Detention Center after pleading no contest to failure to report her address as a sex oender. She was given 107 days credit for time served in jail. As part of Operation Wrangler, the Levy County Sheris Oce and U.S. Marshals Oce checked on sex oenders to determine if they had continued to report their current address to law enforcement. When they checked the last address for Markham, the man who had been living at the home for the past two months said he never heard of Markham. She had moved away without disclosing her new address. Cindy Margaret Nickerson 52, Bronson, was sentenced to 90 days in the Levy County Detention Center and given credit for 23 days served in jail after pleading no contest as a sex oender to failure to register her email address with law enforcement authorities. She had been designated a sex oender on March 23, 1997 on a lewd and lascivious charge connected with a victim under age 16. She had not given the Levy County Sheris Oce her current email address or the email address on her Facebook account. Mark Edwin Barber III pleaded no contest to felony domestic battery by strangulation and was sentenced to 90 days in the Levy County Detention Center and given credit for 87 days of jail time. Levy County sheris deputies said Barber struck his wife of ve years on the arm with his hand. He became angry and grabbed her by the throat with both hands and choked her until she blacked out. e victim did not report the incident for four days out of fear of more violence. She said Barber had struck her on previous occasions and made statements he was going to kill her and then kill himself. Sherry Lynn Storey 38, Old Town, pleaded no contest to carrying a concealed weapon at the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Chieand and was sentenced to time served in jail, which was 35 days. She was barred from entering Wal-Mart. While investigating a retail theft on April 20, 2014, Chieand police found Storey in possession of four pocket knives carried on her side. She told police she had no concealed weapons permit but was working on it. A theft prevention ocer for Wal-Mart had seen Storey twisting t-shirts and placing them in her purse.

She said people have never stopped asking her to run for her old seat and she never stopped elding the questions. Pretty much for the last four years I never stopped getting calls. People would ask me to run and they were talking to me about problems on roads, she said. When she was a commissioner, Rooks said she would meet with residents to determine what type of problem they were dealing with. She recalls when the big tropical storms hit in 2004, one woman from Rosewood called because her ooded road prevented the school bus from driving to her location and didnt allow her to carry her children to the bus stop. Rooks said she went out to visit the woman one day. e woman told Rooks of wading through water with her children one day. When they reached the bus stop her little boy said to his mother that a big lizard was following them. She turned to see a large alligator trailing them. Rooks said she contacted the Federal Emergency Management Agency. She said FEMA provided money for repair to the road. On another occasion, she said a woman called her to complain about the condition of her road. Rooks said she asked a county road department employee to meet her and the woman on the road. e road employee said he didnt see any problem. Rooks said she asked the road employee to climb in her car and drive over the road. She said he changed his mind by the time he rumbled back to their location. He came back and said he didnt realize it was that rough, she said. Rooks, daughter of Jimmy and Katherine Bishop, was born and raised in Cedar Key. She graduated from Cedar Key High School and took a job as a teller at what was then Cedar Key State Bank. She worked there for eight years and trained her sister, Cheryl, how to be a teller. When she injured her neck in a car accident, Rooks she was laid up for a while and the bank couldnt hold her job. She was hired by then Sheri Horace Moody to type all the crime reports. She worked for the sheris oce for 2 years. When her father fell ill from heart attacks, he asked Rooks to run his business, Bishops Rosewood Grocery. Her father had a smoker at the store, but wasnt using it. Rooks decided to begin selling smoked mullet. It went like crazy. I couldnt keep enough sh to meet the demand, she said. She bought a big walk-in cooler to hold more sh. She worked out a business deal with a man in Homosassa to sell her 1,500 pounds of frozen mullet every two weeks. She also continued to buy mullet locally in Cedar Key. I had sh going all over the United States, she said. She was rst elected to the county commission in 1990. She continued operating the grocery store while working as a commissioner, but was forced to stop working in the business in 1994 when the ban on commercial gill nets all but halted her supply of mullet. She said Publix had contacted her prior to the net ban and oered to sell Rooks smoked mullet in 600 of the chain stores outlets. Rooks daughter Joanne said her mother was strict about how the Rosewood grocery store was to be run. She was not allowed to use a calculator to gure customer bills, nor was she allowed to use a notepad. Everything had to be gured in their head. When Rooks lost her seat on the county commission in 1994, she went to work for Sheri Ted Glass. She worked for him four years before taking back her old county commission seat. She became Glasss warrants clerk. Her job was to make sure warrants that had been served were taken out of the system. One day, the sheri told Rooks she would begin working on a computer, something she had never done before. I was scared to touch it. I was afraid Id break it, she said with a chuckle. Sheri Glass said I had to learn. I learned how to use it in three days. She had only worked for Glass three months when he called her into his oce. She gured she was going to lose her job. Glass started talking, but Rooks was petried and didnt hear a word he said. When he asked her what she thought, she had no idea what he had been talking about. Turns out, Glass had asked her to take over as his assistant because the woman who was doing the job was leaving. Soon after she was hired as Glasss assistant, the sheri brought her handwritten notes detailing a letter he wanted written in 20 minutes because he was headed out of town. She began typing it. When he arrived back, he thought she had written the letter on a computer. She hadnt. She said she never thought about using the computer. She quickly recovered and cranked out the letter on the computer. Fast forwarding the clock to 2014, Rooks is still suering from sticker shock after receiving a $38,000 bill from Shands Caire for her ight to Shands Hospital on the day of the Chieand Watermelon Festival. After riding in the festival parade, she developed two blot clots on her lungs and had to be own to Gainesville. Doctors there decided to give her blood thinners rather than operate. e surgery was too risky. e decision to use blood thinners saved her life. But still, she wonders about the $38,000 bill. You can have surgery for that kind of money, she said. She says Shands hasnt billed her for the rst ight back in May, several days after having surgery on her knee. A blood clot from the surgery went to her brain. Her daughter Joanne called 911. e Shands helicopter ew her to Gainesville. Doctors knew it was a stroke. ey gave her a shot to prevent further damage. Surgeons went through an artery in her leg to reach her brain and remove the clot, she said. ey told her she will recover fully. Rooks has a background in ambulance work. At the time she was running her fathers store in Rosewood, the City of Cedar Key had no ambulance. She and other volunteers attended school and became certied emergency medical technicians. Civic groups raised money to purchase an ambulance. Rooks said she sometimes would close her store to respond to an ambulance call. She is aware of the controversy surrounding Chieands request to the county commission to be licensed for operation of an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. City re ocials say the ALS truck wont cost the county anything, and they say it will save lives. City re ocials say they currently operate as a Basic Life Support service, but cant use advanced life saving equipment or drugs without county license to provide ALS services. ey say the citys basic life support truck frequently arrives to medical and trac accident calls well before county ambulances, but city paramedics are currently unable to give patients advanced life support medical treatment to stabilize them for ambulance crews. Rooks said she doesnt want to jeopardize the countys special assessment by giving Chieand the ALS non-transport. e special assessment funds emergency medical services. She has heard there might be a problem in that regard. But at the same time, she said, looking at the whole picture, if you can save a life, I think theres got to be a way around it. Williston Hasnt Settled on Solution for Sinkhole under City Building By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere presence of sinkhole activity beneath the Williston police and re building is prompting concern among city ocials and worrying some city employees who work in the building, but the City Council Tuesday took no ocial action on the matter. Council President Jason Cason said the sinkhole is an administrative matter that the city council is aware of and has been briefed on, but he said city sta will make the decisions on how best to handle the situation. He said the matter was brought to the city council for discussion purposes only. City Police Chief Dennis Strow and Fire Chief Lamar Stegall have been looking at various buildings that could be rented as temporary re and police stations, but have made no nal decision. City Manager Scott Lippman said engineers have not actually seen a sinkhole beneath the building but have inferred from the damage they see to the building that there is a combination of factors indicating sinkhole activity. Lippman said the citys building inspector looked at the building and because of the uncertainty he recommended moving out. Councilman Cal Byrd said the city needs to follow the recommendation. If were being told we need to move, we need to move, he said. e buildings windows, walls and oor are showing signs of stress that indicate sinkhole activity beneath the building. Lippman is working with the citys insurance company to determine the best way of repairing the damage. e insurance company wants to pump grout under the building to shore up the foundation, but Lippman is worried the grout might contaminate a nearby city well. Lippman said an alternative would be using Florida RamJack to drill holes through the concrete foundation and insert screw pilings that would be drilled deep enough to anchor the building. Once RamJack gives the city an estimate, city sta will meet with the insurance company to discuss what the city wants to do verses what the insurance company is willing to pay for. e re department is preparing the vacant TRW building at the airport as a temporary headquarters, but Chief Lamar Stegall said he still wants to keep a re engine stationed at the core of the city for emergencies. He said it could be several weeks before all the equipment could be moved. He said he wants to install roll up doors by the end of the week. Lippman said the insurance company is willing to pay the extra expense involved in relocating the re and police departments while the building is being repaired. He said if grout is used, the company will pay for the relocation expenses only for the period of time the grouting work is taking place. is is not a quick x, said Stegall. Another option would be to not repair the building, but to look for new headquarters to house both police and re. Much depends on negotiations with the insurance company. Lippman indicated that the building is insured and abandoning the building is an option. But the city has not determined when employees will move out or how long the city should wait to relocate equipment and people. We can say we know is there is a problem and we need to do our diligence to protect the employees that are in there 24/7, said Mayor Gerald Hethcoat. Hethcoat said he will meet with Stegall and Strow this week to discuss options for the building and employees.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923continued to page 5AJose Antonio Vargas: The Face of the Entitled Illegal Alien Michele MalkinCreators Syndicateeyve blown it again, big time. ey just cant help themselves. During the Bush years, the open-borders movement won over bleeding hearts in the White House but alienated the American public with radical displays of La Raza (e Race) militancy, desecrated American ags and Che Guevara shirtwearing, st-thrusting marches across the country. Left-wing public relations consultants taught the amnesty mob to tone it down, turn the ags right-side up and stop threatening Reconquista. But the phony red-white-and-blue dye job didnt last. e movements true extremist, entitled roots cant be concealed for long. On Monday, leading illegal-alien journalist turned activist Jose Antonio Vargas engaged in a foolish stunt that will backre on him and his allies in the media and Hollywood and on Capitol Hill. An openly deant law-breaker who proudly calls himself the most privileged undocumented immigrant in the country, Vargas traveled to Texas with a lm crew to commune with illegal aliens surging across the border. But on his way out of the Rio Grande Valley, the former Washington Post reporter and Pulitzer Prize winner was detained at the McAllen, Texas, airport by Customs and Border Patrol. He was attempting to clear security and board a ight without legally required U.S. identication. No surprise: Vargas initially made it past the buoons at the TSA. e media-savvy amnesty agitator telegraphed the stunt beforehand in a piece for Politico. He hyped sympathetic coverage from the liberal Hungton Post. He tweeted a photo of his Philippine passport and a pocket Constitution, which he audaciously presented to authorities in lieu of valid ID. And then Vargas publicity minions captured and tweeted the exact moment when he was handcued, looking shocked and aggrieved that federal law enforcement ocers would actually -gasp! -enforce the law. An illegal-alien Icarus, Vargas had been riding high after movie theaters and CNN aired his biographical, pro-illegal immigration documentary. His amnesty activism is backed by the progressive Tides Center, a project of George Soros and former ACORN chief organizer Drummond Pike. To his elite friends in the no-borders industry, hes a hero. Journalists, celebrities and politicians immediately swallowed the propaganda bait, rallying to their privileged pals side. #DontDeportJose, they all cried in an orchestrated Twitter campaign. Meanwhile, hundreds of thousands of law-abiding people from around the world are waiting patiently for their backlogged visa and green card applications to be reviewed. Vargas outraged reporter friends dont have much sympathy for those would-be Americans. Or for the Americans whove dedicated their lives to protecting homeland security and upholding our laws. Vargas enablers jumped to condemn the CBP employees in McAllen for doing their jobs and demanded that he be freed from unfair and out of hand detention, as one hysterical Roll Call reporter put it. Unfair and out of hand? As Ive noted previously, Vargas came here from the Philippines as a child, but knowingly broke multiple laws as an adult in order to stay in the country. After being supplied with a fake passport with a fake name, a fake green card and a bogus Social Security number, he committed perjury repeatedly on federal I-9 employment eligibility forms. In 2002, while pursuing his journalism career goals, an immigration lawyer told him he needed to accept the consequences of his law-breaking and return to his native Philippines. He ignored the counsel and instead used a friends address to obtain an Oregon drivers license under false pretenses. It gave him an eight-year golden ticket to travel by car, board trains and airplanes, work at prestigious newspapers, and even gain access to the White House -where crack Secret Service agents allowed him to attend a state dinner using his bogus Social Security number. e Vargas stunt will backre because it is a smug and emblematic middle nger to everyone outside the D.C.Manhattan bubble who believes in following the rules. Bronson Council Tentatively Adopts Property Tax Increase continued from page 1ANature Trail at Cobb Park In an unrelated matter, council members authorized town sta to contact building contractors for price quotes to build a nature trail at James. H. Cobb Park. e six-foot wide elevated wood walkway would be constructed on an undeveloped 10acre parcel of park property at the far western edge of the Cobb Park. e walkway would extend from the developed ball elds to the western edge of the parcel where an overlook would be constructed into the cypress swamp for visitors to view wildlife. is parcel was originally purchased as part of the park but apparently was forgotten until the town decided it wanted to allow Verizon Wireless to build a 195-foot tall cell phone tower at the northern edge of the park. e town also wanted to build a community center with a gymnasium. Town ocials contacted the Florida Department of Environmental Protection to nd out if DEP had any objections to adding the cell tower and community center, since DEP funded much of the parks development through Florida Recreation Development Assistance Program grants. DEP discovered the 10-acre parcel at the back of the park had never been developed and told the town it must develop a recreational facility on the parcel before the community center can be built. e idea of building a trail was then proposed. Town Councilman Bruce Greenlee said the town needs to set aside the approximately $50,000 of town funding being returned when the sewer project begins, and use it for the walkway. e money was advanced to the engineers when the design phase of the sewer project dragged out longer than expected. e company has promised to return the money when it starts being paid out of the grant and loan money for the sewer expansion. DEP has agreed to allow Verizon Wireless to build the cell tower. Verizon surveyors were seen at the park Monday staking out areas they intend to survey as part of the process of preparing to build the cell tower. e company has agreed to pay the Town of Bronson $1,000 per month for lease of the cell tower footprint, a 100 by 100 foot piece of park land. Council members plan to use the money to defray some of the costs of building a $1 million community center. ey also hope to obtain grants and donations. e town has obtained a $300,000 line of credit from a bank for the project.Sewer Project StartingPublic Works Director Jimmy Dunford said he has received 27 dig requests as part of the upcoming $3 million sewer expansion project. e state requires companies and government agencies to obtain permission before they dig anywhere close to buried water and sewer lines or other underground utilities. Dunford is estimating that the digging of the sewer line trenches will begin around the rst of September. e sewer line will connect Bronsons downtown business district to central sewer and will run along Court Street in front of the Levy County Courthouse. e courthouse is already tied to city sewer through a lift station at the back of the courthouse, but the lines will be recongured and the lift station will be removed. e courthouse will tie into the new sewer line. As part of the sewer project, portions of Court Street will be dug up and will have to be repaved. Dunford suggested the council ask the contractor to repave a 100-yard section of Picnic Street directly in front of the courthouse with any extra asphalt. Town Clerk Kelli Brettel is also hoping the contractors can pave the dirt parking lot in front of Town Hall with extra asphalt.Laundromat Opening AgainDunford announced that a laundromat is opening in the shopping center that is anchored by Bubbaques and Hungry Howies. e laundromat has a new owner and should begin operating Tuesday. Laundromats have opened and closed previously at the same location, but Dunford said the new owner operates three other laundromats.Oyster Disaster Looms in Cedar Key Without State Help continued from page 1A e problem has been compounded by the fact that the Florida Department of Agriculture this year failed to provide any funding for the annual planting of oysters on oyster bars o Cedar Key. Oyster planting is important to the industry in Cedar Key and Suwannee County because it allows a new crop of oysters to grow annually and be harvested by local shermen who depend on the crop for their livelihood. It also provides a product that tourists love to eat. In addition to approving the resolution, commissioners agreed to write a letter to the governor and legislature explaining the dire circumstances of the Levy and Dixie County oyster farmers and the need for temporary and long term nancial relief. Oyster planting is very important. Its been that way since the 1980s, Beckham said. e industry supports many families in Cedar Key and Suwannee County. Oyster farmers are considered migrants by denition because they travel long distances on the Gulf of Mexico to harvest oysters. As migrants, Beckham said Cedar Key High School seniors are entitled to college scholarships, which wont be available this year because there is no state sanctioned replanting of the crop. Oyster planting projects have kept oyster sheries alive over the years to provide economic and community benets to the oyster shing industry and to the families and communities that depend on the industry for their livelihood and viability, the resolution said. e resolution noted that the recent collapse of the Apalachicola Bay sheries in Franklin County, while serious, overshadowed the lingering struggles of local oyster sheries in Levy and Dixie Counties. Franklin County received $8.1 million in funding from the BP oil spill to rebuild its oyster shing grounds. Beckham said oystermen from Franklin County came down to the Cedar Key and Dixie County coastline and harvested every oyster they could nd, leaving the oyster beds depleted. When they sold their oysters, she said the receipts, known as trip tickets, showed the oysters had been harvested o Cedar Key and Dixie County, leaving the impression with the state that Cedar Key and Dixie County had plenty of oysters. e resolution says there is a misperception that oyster sheries in the Levy and Dixie County areas are not in serious decline, when nothing could be further from the truth. Without immediate funding for oyster planting eorts and for support of oyster shermen in Levy and Dixie Counties, the local oyster shing industry will face a complete collapse, which will lead to dire economic consequences for entire shing communities in Levy and Dixie Counties and surrounding areas, which will in turn lead to the need for more extensive recovery assistance, the resolution said. the expense of assigning deputies to stay with inmates at the hospital was approximately $1 million annually. Weve had two deliveries of babies (by inmates) in the past month, McCallum said, giving Levy County Commissioners insights into why inmate medical costs are stretching his budget thin. County commissioners control the funding process for the departments they control and the budgets of the sheri, property appraiser, tax collector, elections supervisor and clerk of courts. ose oces are funded with property tax dollars. e sheris total budget request of $10,934,395 is 7.9 percent higher than the current budget ending on Sept. 30, but because it is a largest budget in county government it often gets close scrutiny at budget time. e next largest budget is for the Levy County Department of Public Safety which administers Emergency Medical Services worth about $5.5 million and the re tax worth about $2.5 million. County commissioners received budget requests for all elected ocials in county government, the department heads and city re chiefs as part of their rst budget workshop of the year, but made no commitment concerning how much they were willing to spend. One request left the board with questions. Levy County Animal Services Director David Wetherford said he would like to hire a veterinarian for his department. He oered no details. He said he would prepare information for the board and present it at a later date. e sheri said his previous budget was so lean last year that he returned only $770 to the county commission at the end of the budget year. It gets pretty scary to get that close with a $10.1 million budget, he said. e sheris oce is responsible for four budgets that in total make up the $10.9 million over budget. e law enforcement budget, the Levy County Detention Center budget, the 911 address budget and the 911 communications budget are part of the overall spending plan. McCallum has asked for 3 additional positions in law enforcement, 1 in communications and 2 in detention. He has also requested about $69,000 for the lease/purchase of four additional patrol cars. Last year he received no new cars. e cars receive heavy wear and tear because the deputies are constantly responding to calls. McCallum said he is also losing employees to neighboring counties that oer better pay. On the positive side, McCallum said the housing of federal inmates at the detention center has generated $158,795 in revenue that was returned to the county commissions operating budget. e U.S. Marshals Service pays $54 a day to house a federal inmate at the Levy County Detention Center.Inmate Medical Expenses Driving Up Costs for Sheris Oce continued from page 1A

He will be on the Nov. 4 general election ballot to face the winner of the Republican primary election on Aug. 26. He started life in a way that some might consider a bad break. His biological parents gave him up for adoption at 3 months, but he had the good fortune to be adopted by Clifton and Elizabeth Grin. She was a school teacher at the former Gulf Hammock School. When the school closed she became a homemaker. Clifton Grin was a handyman. When his biological mother passed away, Grin found out she had been a secretary all of her life for Metro Life in Jacksonville. He had placed his name on a registry that allowed him to nd out her identity after she died. He still knows nothing about his biological father. Elizabeth Grin, the only mother he ever knew, died in 1991 of an aneurism. She was originally from the Romeo/Williston area. His father died on their 57th anniversary. He was originally from Williston. I had lunch with him on the day he passed. He wasnt feeling well, but he didnt want to go to the doctor. He was sitting at home eating ice cream when he passed away, Grin said. Grin said he came from humble beginnings. A lot of people think I come from a wealthy family, but they were not wealthy at all, he said. He added, When Rose Blair came along, I had the drive and gumption and I got the nancial backing from her family. Its funny, this time I was able to help her. Grin was referring to the fact that he hired Blair to manage the Bronson Restaurant at a time when she needed a job. She is the restaurants current manager. ey had owned Roses Restaurant in Chieand at one time, but the Chieand restaurant later closed. In the same time frame, they were co-owners of the Bronson Restaurant. After graduating from Bronson High School, Grin said he sold peanuts and watermelons along U.S. 27A in Bronson where his mother operated a yard shop. It was his rst attempt at becoming a businessman. e open air skating rink was built in 1980 o U.S. 27 at the site of what is now Nannas Place. It did well until roller skating began to die out. His skating rink in Chieand was constructed in 1981. Grin became a Bronson town councilman at age 18. He said he became the youngest mayor in Florida at that time. He served four years on the Bronson Town Council before getting out of politics. He went back to the council in 1997 and served six more years. Grin said he has two big priorities now. He wants to be elected to the District 4 county commission seat and to make the county debt-free. He would also like to develop an organization like the Boys and Girls Club in Levy County to give young people activities and structure. We need to have something for the kids to have a good time, to have fun while they are a kid, he said. I think its something they have to look at. Grin said he would work to see a hospital developed in Chieand. He is looking forward to the development of the College of Central Florida. He believes the hospital and the college will be good for economic development in the county. As a county commissioner, he said he wants to look into the possibility of forming a partnership with Shands Hospital to bring better medical care to Chieand, whether that involves an emergency room, a cancer center, kidney center or some type of training center that would give our young people coming out of high school a career. On the subject of young people, he said the county operates recreational parks and he believes the parks should be used to sponsor swimming lessons for kids and other activities. He said the county at one time had a summer program that was open to kids to let them have fun and at the same time learn. ats originally why I got into the skating rink business; there was no place for kids. All we had was bars, Grin said. Regarding a recent decision by two county commissioners to accept political contributions from DAB Constructors and later vote to award a road paving contract to the company, Grin said he would have abstained from voting if he had been in their position. If a major contributor to my campaign was up for approval of a project, I would abstain from voting, just so it did not look like there was any impropriety, he said. Or I would have refunded the money and said after this is over, if you want to donate money, its okay. Whether its legal or not, appearances and perceptions make a dierence, he added. Regarding the controversy about the proposed Advanced Life Support non-transport truck in Chieand, Grin said he believes the ALS non-transport truck is the next progression that needs to happen in the countys emergency medical services. I would sure like to know if I call them, they will come out and do something for me, he said. Grin said the county commission doesnt have to raise taxes to pay for an ALS non-transport truck. He said the commission should examine its budget and nd money that can be reassigned. Chieand will be the start of it, but I think it should progress to the major hubs. You have to test it and see how it can be run eectively. Anything new, you have to test it for a while, he said. Grin said he knows more about ALS non-transport than he did when the subject rst was discussed by the Chieand City Commission and later by the Levy County Commission. I think its a good decision, and in the end its going to save lives, he said. Grin was asked to respond to comments by some county commissioners that Chieand should shoulder a portion of the cost of having the countys Tallahassee attorneys examine the funding ordinance for the county emergency medical services. ats all unnecessary. Just delay tactics to get past the election. Its a major decision that politicians dont want to make before an election, he said. He added, I dont know why you would need to consult the Tallahassee attorneys. e new service comes under the same emergency medical services department, so I dont see why there would have to be a change in the special assessment that funds EMS. If they want to add a new ambulance in Chieand, wouldnt it come under the same ordinance? Course, if I read the ordinance I might see it dierently. Grin was also asked to comment on the county commissions 1 cent sales tax and whether he believes a portion of the $2.5 million generated annually by the tax should be set aside for the ALS non-transport service. e county adopted the 1 cent sales tax originally to oset money it was using to pay back a bond issue. e bond issue was restructured in 2012 to get a better interest rate. But Grin said the county had enough money in 2012 to pay o the bonds. Im a debt free type of person, Grin said. My goal would be to make the county debt free and bring the 7 cent sales tax down to 6 cents. Is that do-able? Sure. Its a matter of looking at your budget and seeing what can be moved around. Its a matter of shifting. Asked about the two-year-old Levy County Department of Public Safety and its relationship with city re departments in Levy County, Grin said all the cities have invested far too much money in those departments to not have a partnership with the county. It has to be a partnership. Until Levy County grows to be another Alachua County, we need to keep those partnerships with the city re departments. We need to make the services better in those departments and get the countys backing and resources, but it has to be a good working partnership with the cities, Grin said. He said the county commissions re funding needs to be given to municipalities, but the cities should be able to spend the money as they deem it necessary.Jamie Grin Says He Will Bring Business Skills to the County Commission continued from page 1A Dear Friends and Neighbors, I want to extend a sincere thank you from myself and my family to all of you for your prayers, owers, cards, and expressions of concern during my recent hospital stay. By the grace of God, I am at home and becoming stronger each day. Your good wishes remind me daily of the power of prayer and the value of loving and supportive family and friends. ere are not adequate words to express how much your thoughts and prayers meant to me during this dark hour in my life. Please know that you all reinforced my determination to come back stronger than ever. Sincerely, Lilly Rooks and Family $70,000 of additional revenue. County commissioners Tuesday discussed every budget plan being submitted by elected ocials and their department heads, as well as city re chiefs from around the county, but made no decision on whether to approve the requests. Commissioners are expected to discuss the re department budgets in more detail after the regular board meeting on Aug. 5. Fire chiefs are requesting additional funding. e Emergency Medical Services budget is proposed at $5.9 million while the re control budget is $2.49 million. Both budgets are administered by the Department of Public Safety. e road and bridge budget is $6.2 million and the county bus transit system has a budget of just over $2 million funded entirely by grants and fares from riders. e county commission makes no contribution to the transit system. e landll budget is $4.8 million. Tourist development is $333,487.County Commission Lowers Its Property Tax Rate as Revenues Rise continued from page 1ACounty Installing Speaker System to Broadcast Sound in Board Meetings continued from page 1Aand has already measured the commission meeting room to get a sense of what type of speakers would work best. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said one of the challenges is connecting speakers that allow the sound to be recorded for public record purposes. e commission also wants the public to hear what the board is saying as well what citizens say. Moody said the county may be able to install the speaker system before the start of the new budget year on Oct. 1. e poor acoustics in the commission room were rst questioned by a Journal reporter recently who asked if the four speakers hanging from the commission ceiling actually worked. e speakers dont work and have never worked. Bell said the speakers caused an echo in the microphones recording the meeting. Residents sometimes complain about not being able to hear well on the back two rows. Commissioners with soft voices cant be heard. Some department directors with soft voices are also dicult to hear when their backs are turned away from the public.As legal immigrant Asoka Samarasinghe wrote to me on Monday, Michelle, this guy is a slap to the face of all us legal immigrants and citizens.

Bell Says his Business Background Has Made Him a Better Commissioner continued from page 1Agiving the public services. His family has its roots in Levy County government and law enforcement. His father, the late Dwight Bell, was a sheris deputy in the early years of his career in public service but later became the property appraiser for 16 years in the 1980s and early 1990s. His mother, Laverne, ran the family restaurant with her husband and later became a Levy County school teacher. e Bell family has deep connections with law enforcement in the county. Bells brother Michael is a Levy County sheris investigator. His Uncle Bubba Castell, now retired, was the second in command at the sheris oce at one time and later became civil deputy who greeted and searched visitors as they entered the courthouse. His Uncle Vernon Castell served for 20 years in the U.S. Coast Guard and later was a law enforcement dispatcher for the Florida Highway Patrol. His grandmother, Myra Castell, was a coast watcher during World War II, keeping watch for enemy vessels and airplanes. His Uncle Leo Castell was assistant superintendent at Lancaster Correctional Institution. Bell bought his father and mothers restaurant, Bells Restaurant, at the age of 19 for $50,000. He had been attending Santa Fe Community College, but a professor who made insulting comments in one of his classes convinced him that making money in the business world was a smarter move than earning a degree. He said his parents were a good inuence on him. He inherited his mothers organizational talents and learned much from his father about how to run a restaurant business. He was a good in business. I remember riding down the road one day and he reminded me of the cost of a packet of Sweet and Low, Bell said. He founded Bubbaques in Bronson in 2008. He established a Hungry Howies franchise that eventually bloomed into 26 stores before the Great Recession hit. He eventually sold all his pizza stores, but he says he will soon expand his Bubbaques from eight to 10 stores. One store in Gainesville is relocating. In 2002 he signed a contract with Progress Energy to provide meals for the companys Crystal River Energy Complex, which has its own cafeteria. He still operates at the complex, which has downsized with the closure of the nuclear power plant. He still has an active catering business he runs out of his oce in Chieand. He said he discovered as a county commissioner that his role is to help people. He said he gets a lot of calls from people who dont know where to go for help or information. But he has also discovered there arent many people in government who have created their own business and had to meet a payroll. Until you are an employer, you do not know what the challenges are to keep a business going, he said. He said he learned early on in the business world that failure to treat employees with respect was a bad way to operate. I came into the business world with a philosophy of rule by force and I lost a lot of good people. I soon realized I was only as good as the people surrounding me. e biggest challenge is managing people, he said. He said the Great Recession crushed him economically after tremendous success in the 1990s, forcing him to liquidate his pizza franchises and restructure, but he continued to be the owner of Bubbaques. He said times are still tight in the restaurant business. Bell said the Cross City Bubbaques was closed because it was too large at 6,000 square feet to be viable. He said the optimum size for a Bubbaques is 2,000 square feet with no liquor being sold. He said adjusting to the market conditions is key to being able to survive. Being able to survive the bad times shakes out the businesses, he said. As a government ocial, Bell said he once had a man walk up to him and say he should be a full-time commissioner. e comment was directed at Bell because he divides his time between his business interests and county commission work. But Bell said he believes his business interests have given him a better perspective on how to govern. He said being in business provided insights into how government policies and taxation impact people. When you create laws and set taxes, you have to live within the legislation and tax scenarios you create, he said. Bells District 4 encompasses all of Fanning Springs and runs south to the Chieand city limits. It picks up again at the south Chieand city limits and runs all the way to Gulf Hammock, and goes west to include Fowlers Blu, Rosewood and Cedar Key. But Chieand belongs to District 2.Should Chieand have ALS Non-Transport?Bell says he is aware of the interest in the concept of establishing an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck in Chieand. Conceptually the ALS non-transport truck is a very positive thing, he said. Anyone who does not want to increase public safety is probably not t for public service. But Bell said he doesnt think the ALS non-transport will be free of costs, as some have suggested. From my perspective, once we establish the cost we need to determine how much we want to spend for that service, he said. Everyone says public service is priceless. ats true. But we need to make sure we can sustain the level of service once it starts. Bell said he has family members living all over Levy County. He said if anyone has a big stake in public safety, it is him. He added that the methods used to fund emergency medical services will have to be recalculated and a determination made on who pays for ALS. Who pays for it has not been determined, he said. ose who make statements that the service will be free of costs to the county are not being realistic, according to Bell. He said nothing is free. Emergency medical services in Levy County are funded by a special assessment. Bell said the county originally charged a at special assessment fee to everyone including businesses, but some in the community felt that an individual citizen was having less of an impact on emergency medical services than a Wal-Mart, he said. e special assessment was changed to assess businesses by the square foot. Bell said the special assessment that funds EMS may have to be reexamined to factor in ALS service. He said the county cant consider just Chieand for an ALS service. A life in Chieand is not worth more than a life in Williston, Cedar Key or Fanning Springs, he said. A life is a life, so if we establish an increase in service, we need to establish what qualies a city to have ALS non-transport. Its real easy to say lets give Chieand an ALS non-transport, but we have to be responsible to ensure we provide the service to other areas that may want ALS non-transport. No other cities have asked for ALS non-transport. He said there is also the issue of who controls the narcotic medicines on board an ALS non-transport, and who handles run control and tracking. He said there has been talk of using shared employees, and there are other issues. Bell said the complexity of the issue is why the county wants to meet with Chieand ocials and its medical directors on Aug. 6. e medical directors are responsible for the care given to patients in an ambulance or an ambulance helicopter. e Aug. 6 meeting will not be open to the public, but the Press will be allowed to report on the meeting. We have a group of citizens very interested in making ALS happen in Chieand. It is our responsibility to exhaust all eorts to accomplish their goal, if it is operationally and nancially feasible, Bell said. He said it is unfortunate that people dont understand that the scheduling of meetings of the joint working group is very dicult. e joint working group is composed of Chieand and county government ocials. He said these are professional people who have busy schedules and are dicult to convene at one location. He said there has been no attempt to push a nal decision on Chieand ALS past the Aug. 26 election. He said the meeting with the medical directors on Aug. 26 may very well answer many of the important questions. We need to ask our medical directors. ey said that was the very best date. Were at their mercy, Bell said. On a related question Bell said he believes Chieand should share in the expense of hiring the countys Tallahassee attorneys to review the special assessment that funds emergency medical services. e county believes the special assessment ordinance needs review because of Chieands request to operate an ALS truck. I think its unjust if we have been conservative, for any municipality to expect the county to fund the entire bill, he said. Bell said he believes any community that could aord the ALS service would want the service. But we need the operational and nancial ability to oer it to any community that wants it, he said. On a separate subject Bell said the clerks oce has already placed money in the 2014-15 budget plan for a better speaker system in the commission meeting room. e current public address system speakers dont broadcast the voices of commissioners or visitors speaking at the lectern. e microphones only record the comments made in the meeting. I think with people participating in county commission meetings, they should be able to hear, Bell said.Record of AccomplishmentsRegarding his accomplishments as a commissioner in his rst term, Bell said the commission has been able to engage sta to limit spending; worked to increase budget reserves; implemented a eet management plan in many departments; established an automated permit system for the building and zoning department that should be active by the end of the year; established computers in the trucks of building inspectors to allow them to record the results of the inspections in real time for the public and property owners to access; had a successful pet adoption event at Tractor Supply a week ago where 16 dogs and 7 cats were adopted; has implemented and improved the countys rating system for evaluating roads roads are now evaluated every 24 months on the basis of community benet, trac counts and housing counts. Bell heads an economic strike team, approved by the full county commission, with representatives from every city participating in discussions. e strike team is working to create more economic development and jobs in Levy County. Asked about the 1 cent sales tax that produces $2.5 million a year in revenue and whether some of that money should be used to fund ALS non-transport, Bell noted that a certain amount of that money is set aside for repayment of a bond issue annually and some of the money is used to pay for other things in the general fund.

Mills and the other nalists of this award were recognized at the 86th annual Florida FFA State Convention and Leadership Conference this July. Jerry started his Supervised Agriculture Experience (SAE) project when he was just a boy, feeding motherless calves from this family farm. His father gave him these calves to raise and integrate back into their herd. Each year, when those now-grown cows calve, Mills gets a portion of the earnings. With those funds, he was able to purchase show calves, which he started to show and sell at age 8. Mills joined Williston Middle FFA in sixth grade where he quickly became an active member and accepted leadership responsibilities. Mills SAE has developed into more than just showing and selling beef cattle, it includes a hay mowing business in which he proted enough funds to purchase his own tractor, he assists with more than 2,000 acres of farm land and actively participates in several FFA Career Development Events and community awareness activities. Mills plans to attend Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College after graduating high school to study pesticides and chemical resistance. Due to his hard work and diligence, Mills has been able to save enough money through his SAE program to pay all college and living expenses as he accomplishes his educational goals. Jerry is the son of Jerry and Desiree Mills; his advisor is Mrs. Natalie Couey. Other nalists for this award include: Carlie Vining, Williston Middle FFA; Lindsey Wilder, Williston Middle FFA; and Krista Lyons, Lafayette Middle FFA. e Florida FFA Star Awards represent the best of the best among hundreds of FFA Degree recipients. Finalists for the award have mastered skills in production, nance, management and/or research.

3B BRUCE BENTON SMITHAugust 12, 1936 July 15, 2014 Mr. Bruce Benton Smith of Williston passed away at the age of 77 on July 15, 2014. Originally from Ohio, the Smith family relocated to Williston in 1948. Old timers will remember Smiths father, Milo Benton Smith (1893-1975) as owner of Milo Smith and Son, a sign and highway panel service. e father-son duo worked this business together on Noble Avenue for nearly 25 years. e business was located between what is now Lanes Yardware and Williston Public Library. Smiths mother, Gladys Freddie Smith (1893-1973) was a lovely and eccentric woman who taught both voice and piano lessons and inspired many young students to perform at recitals and musicals held at the Williston High School Auditorium. After graduating from Williston High in 1957, Smith enlisted in the US Army, was honorably discharged after 18 months service, returned to Williston and resumed work with his father. He also worked as a movie operator on reel-to-reel projectors and as a janitor for local businesses including Williston Welding, Williston Door and Millwork and Crabtrees Garage and Auto Parts. Smith worked many years as a volunteer keeping the time clock and score board at home basketball games as well as running yard markers along the sidelines at football games. A Funeral Service was held on Sunday July 20, 2014 at First Baptist of Williston with the Memorial at 5 p.m. and a community-wide potluck dinner at the Family Life Center at 6 p.m. Donations can be made in his honor to the Williston High School Band, First Baptist Church or Hospice of Citrus County. History has it that Smith enjoyed the past 58 years of his life spreading cheer, making friends and reminiscing about more youthful days. It was sometimes tricky to know when Smith mingled fact and ction but no one could deny the keen mind that made Smith a great storyteller. He will be missed.STEPHEN A MCCLINTICKMay 5, 1944 July 16, 2014 Stephen A McClintick died peacefully at the age of 70 at his home in Cedar Key, Florida, on July 16, 2014, after a brief illness.

Angel House rift Store is open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. every weekend. We are located 3 miles N. of Williston on Hwy 27A. Talk was hushed. Only an occasional hint of nervous laughter rose from the predawn staging area. A rag tag regiment for sure, wed gathered from near and far; deeming the mission worthy, and willing to accept the cost and sacrices it would entail upon our families. Outside the screen door lay enough weaponry and ammunition to hold o an all-out Russian ground assault. After receiving orders, our convoy lit out into the light rain and drove south under the cover of darkness. About twenty minutes before dawn we turned o the pavement onto an old farmers road, where we precariously crossed a slippery little span that forded a steep ravine. e lead truck cut deep ruts into the soft earth and the rest of us fell right in behind. Just short of the ambush zone we hid the trucks along a tree line and led out into the soggy elds to spread out. I hunkered down in a little patch of cattails, thankful for the cover they provided. Alertly, I double checked my weapon to make sure Id shucked a round in the chamber. I knew thered be no room for error once this September morning came calling. Within minutes the calm gray skies appeared and were awakened with the crack of gunre. First one shot, then another, then the whole eld was clapping like thunder. Voices shouted to me from my ank, Here they come! I stabbed my barrel through the cattails, easing o the safety. Hastily I squeezed o three quick blasts. To my surprise, the little bird just dipped, dived, and ew right on by; none the worse for wear! I could hear the other hunters shucking new shells into their guns and mumbling words Ill not repeat. Dove huntingtheres nothing like it. We soon surmised that the birds werent ying well in that particular eld, so we headed back to the trucks to try another. Gerald, the land owner, yelled, Move out, and turned the convoy around. We followed along behind in his ruts, six or seven trucks back. As we came around the corner to the bridge I noticed something odd. What in the world? I exclaimed. Geralds tailgate was pointing to the sky! e culvert had caved in and sent him nose rst o into the ravine. Hed already climbed back up the bank safely. ankfully, his fancy new double barrel shotgun was unscathed. His brother rushed over, Wasnt grandma riding with you? Geralds eyes got big. Hold my gun, he said. We pulled Geralds truck out with a chain, but we were still in quite a predicament. is only way out was across that slippery half-caved bridge. e older guys gathered around to strategize. However, before they could even scratch their chins the younger bucks were circling around making runs at it. Mud was ying, and engines were revving to a loud chorus of Yee Haws. I felt like I was in a Dukes of Hazard episode! e older guys just shook their heads in disgust. After much thought, they revealed their much wiser plan. eyd get the younger fellows to drive their trucks across for them. ey did. Eventually we all made it; some of us a little worse for wear. Ask Grandma. Have you ever fallen in with a rag tag bunch? Let me tell you, theyll sure lead you down some slippery slopes. e devils always running some sort of convoy under the cover of darkness. Sadly, there appears to be no shortage of volunteers willing to slide over into his ruts. Somebodys always poking up out of the cattails, Lets go to the casinos and eat a buet. Dont do it!! ere are stronger people than you down at the pawn shop right now hocking their kids X-Box for another roll of the dice. en theres always that new girl at your job batting her eyes at you, I wish my husband was as understanding and handsome as you. Run! You know shes lying. Youve looked in the mirror! Sin is never worth the cost and sacrice it will entail upon your life, or your familys. Its a shaky bridge to nowhere, and it will cram your nose in the mud faster than you can say Yee Haw. Not to mention, displaying your tailgate for all to see. If youre already plodding along knee deep in sin right now, repent. Circle back around to the solid foundation God has laid for you in Jesus. He will forgive you and lead you out. It may not be easy, it may take time, and you may come out a little worse for the wear, but at least you will come out! I can testify to it. God will rescue you if you will only humble yourself enough to reach up out of the ditch for His helping hand. But anyway Its much easier walking through this life when you stay on the straight and narrow and keep your boots clean. Dont say you cant do it. e Bible promises. ( But remember that the temptations that come into your life are no dierent from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will keep the temptation from becoming so strong that you cant stand up against it. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you will not give in to it. 1 Corinthians 10:13 NLT).
