Strow says marijuana is a gateway drug that opens the door to other illegal drug use and he said Constitutional Amendment 2 has loopholes that would allow drug dealers, children and even convicted felons to purchase pot from a medical marijuana distribution center. Once you legalize it and you let this monster out of the bag its hard to control the monster, Strow said. e amendment does not aect laws prohibiting marijuana use, possession, production or sale of marijuana, but Strow said there are loopholes in the law that allow just about anyone to buy and distribute medical marijuana. Strow said caregivers are people who could be licensed under the new law to dispense marijuana under the proposed law, but he said the licensing process is not as strict as obtaining a drivers license. Basically youre licensing drug dealers, he said. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town Clerk Kelli Brettel asked her ve bosses for a big raise Monday night but they took no action on increasing her pay from $38,000 to $55,000. Brettel functions much like a city manager but without the title. She has brought the town back from the dark days when a public corruption scandal left the town with poor records and not much credibility in the eyes of the state. One of the best things weve done; we have gotten a level of citizen trust, Brettel said. She said citizens think the town is on the right track. Councilman Berlon Weeks agreed. Its the phone calls we dont get thats nice, Weeks said. Councilman Bruce Greenlee reminded Brettel that with higher pay come higher expectations. Her request for a pay raise came during a budget workshop before the Town Council. Brettel reminded the council she has done everything expected of her and with the help of her sta has made things happen in Bronson. I didnt just do enough to get by, she said. We really were out and got the town going. Brettel is often seen cooking and serving burgers at the town park during festivals and works long hours at Town Hall, sometimes on weekends.Pre-election candidate forums like the one in Chieand Friday night should not be managed in a way that shields elected ocials from having to answer dicult questions in front of a live audience, but thats exactly what happened. Written questions submitted by a Journal reporter and other residents at the Chieand forum were withheld by a county employee who served as moderator. e questions were written on small sheets of white paper and collected by Chieand Citizen Editor Lou Jones before the candidates forum began at Chieand VFW Post 5625. is year e Citizen and the VFW co-sponsored the forum, which turned out to be anything but informative and provoked most of the 45 people in attendance to leave well before the forum was nished. e only people who stayed until the bitter end were the candidates themselves, their supporters and a few VFW people involved in the event. A dark cloud of censorship was cast over the legitimacy of the event when a surprising decision was made late in the forum to withhold written questions regarding the proposed Advanced Life Support non-transport unit for Chieand, the countys 1 cent sales tax and other county-related issues. e questions about the ALS Unit in Chieand and the 1 cent county sales tax were submitted by a Journal reporter.

Proposed Chieand Hospital Project Back on Track By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere former Tri County Hospital project in Chieand may have died a few years back, but it is being resurrected under a new name, with better nancial backing and a smaller size, according to a representative of the company that plans to build it. Frank G. Schupp, senior vice president of development for Amerishealth, was given assurances by the Levy County Commission Tuesday that the project would receive a letter of support from the board.An artists rendering shows what the future Suwannee River Community Hospital, Inc. will look like.

Bronson Clerk Asks for Big Raise, Cites Accomplishments U.S. 27A in Downtown Williston Named for Slain Police Ocer By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterIn the 26 years since he was murdered in the line of duty, Cpl. David Moss hasnt been forgotten. e Williston Police Department constructed a garden in his memory and created a David Moss memorial in the police department lobby, but the department wanted to do something more for the man who made the ultimate sacrice for Williston. On July 23rd, three-quarters of a mile of U.S. 27A in downtown Williston was dedicated in memory of Moss. Two permanent memorial signs were erected in his memory between Main Street and U.S. 41. You cannot forget your heroes, Chief Dennis Strow said. When he stepped out of his car that night he stepped into the arms of Jesus. Mosss tragic loss on the morning of July 30, 1988, and his life as a Williston police ocer and family man are remembered in a book written by his widow, Lori Moss, and Traveler Wendell Moss. e book is entitled a memorial End of Commissioner Chad Johnson Condemns TroublemakersBy Terry WittSenior Staff Writer Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson expressed frustration Tuesday with what he considers irresponsible accusations being made by people who just want to stir the pot. Johnson declined to say who he was talking about or what exactly they had said to draw his ire, but he left no doubt he wasnt in any mood for more of the same. He condemned the unnamed person or persons in a written statement read to the audience at Tuesdays county commission meeting. I wish to publicly express my utter frustration and personal disappointment with what I believe to be irresponsible accusations, misconstrued information and misleading innuendos with the intent to By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterIts not the rst time Chieand and Williston have clashed, but this time the opponents were not high school football teams, but members of Levy County Commission on opposite sides of a debate about Chieand re funding Tuesday. e subject was the re budget for Chieand Fire Rescue. Commissioner Chad Johnson of Chieand wanted to honor Chieands full request for $12,300 of additional county re funding. Commissioner Danny Stevens of Williston was ercely opposed. e two sides compromised after nearly a half hour of civilized argument, giving Chieand an additional $8,000 of funding on a one-time basis, but with Stevens and Commissioner Mike Joyner of Morriston voting against the motion. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell, who also represents Chieand, along with Commissioners John Meeks and Johnson approved the increase in funding for Chieand Fire Rescue. e county commission levies a special assessment fee on properties throughout the unincorporated areas of Levy County to pay for re services in those areas. Commissioners distribute the money to the various municipal re departments that provide the services. County Commissioners ended up giving all but one re department increases in funding. Chieand received a total of $212,754 with the $8,000 bonus included; Williston got $215,054 with the $12,300 bonus; Bronson $105,401 with a $10,000 bonus; Inglis $56,876 with an $8,000 bonus; South Levy Fire Department $30,000 with a decrease of more than $6,000 from last year at the suggestion of Meeks; Fanning Springs $76,386 with a $25,000 bonus; and Cedar Key $66,219 with a $5,000 bonus. e bonuses were one-time allocations on top of what the cities receive as a base amount. e departments will have to return next year to ask for bonuses.

Levy County Department of Public Safety Director, David Knowles, contacted the Council to obtain new gear for the 10 new Fireghter I Recruits from local departments who recently completed the 2013-2014 LCDPS Fireghter I program. Eligible recruits from LCDPS, Williston Fire Department, Bronson Fire Department, and Inglis Fire Department participated in the opportunity to save taxpayers $22,000 ($2,200 per set of gear). e Council sent award notications to the Fire Chiefs on April 14 and on August 5 at the Levy County Board of County Commissioners meeting, Council President, Charlie Frank, presented the Fire Chiefs with the new bunker gear for their recruits. If you are interested in learning life-saving skills or volunteering contact: Levy County Department of Public Safety at 352/486-5209. Fireghter I Recruits, ocials, LCDPS Chief David Knowles and the Levy County Commissioners are all pleased with the new bunker gear received from a grant.LCDPS Receives Bunker Gear Grant for New Fireghter I RecruitsFlorida Highway Patrol started receiving a rash of calls on Monday Aug. 4 just before 2 p.m. about a reckless driver moving dangerously fast northbound on I-75 in Marion County in a 2002 Innity G35. Even the Tampa FHP were getting calls on the same driver. A FHP trooper in Sumter County clocked the vehicle at 127 mph just getting it on in the northbound lane. With FHP cruiser lights on and sirens going the driver of the speeding vehicle did not stop for the trooper so a BOLO (Be On the Lookout) warning was issued to all Marion County units and Corp. Tomas Dillon observed the speeder at the 360 mile marker. When Trooper Dillon saw the vehicle it was missing its left front tire but the driver continued on in a reckless manner as he continued northbound. After the driver entered Alachua County, Corp. Dillon noticed the vehicle had nally slowed down. With the safety of the motoring public in mind, Trooper Dillon initiated a PIT (Precision Immobilization Technique) maneuver until the Innity was redirected onto the east shoulder of I-75 and immobilized in the area of Paynes Prairie. Several FHP units arrived to assist Corp. Dillion. e driver, Charles Englebaugh, 45, of Sarasota, did not exit the vehicle after multiple commands to do so. After an hour of refusing to exit the vehicle the Alachua County Sheris Department deployed chemical spray into the vehicle. Once Englebaugh got out of his car he was taken into custody and transported to the Alachua County jail. No injuries were reported but assuredly there were aggravated motorists as the trac northbound on I-75 was stopped for approximately one hour due to this incident. information submitted by the Florida Highway Patrol

Should the measure pass, the Florida Department of Health would develop guidelines on who can use the drug and how much can be used for medical purposes. e website Vote No on 2 says there are no restrictions on where medical marijuana could be sold and alleges pot docs are liable to spring up next to restaurants, schools, churches or supermarkets. Strow said thats why he wants to establish limitations in Williston on where medical marijuana could be sold if the measure is passed by Florida voters on Nov. 4. When you see a problem its better to x it before it gets worse, Strow said. Strow said trac enforcement could be trickier with marijuana impairment. He said marijuana stays in the bloodstream for 28 days, and if someone is stopped for driving under the inuence of marijuana there is no current technology that can reliably determine when the pot was smoked. He said ocers can still get convictions by documenting exactly what the driver was doing wrong when he was behind the wheel of a vehicle and proving that they were impaired, but he said its not like driving under the inuence of alcohol. He said there are standardized tests to determine how much alcohol is present in the bloodstream at the time a person is driving a vehicle. No such test exists for marijuana impairment. But he said the lack of a standardized test wont stop the Williston Police Department from arresting and convicting people for being impaired while driving under the inuence of marijuana. Well make a case. Well prosecute you and well convict you, Strow said. Strow said his department wont cut drivers any slack regardless of what type of drug impairs their driving skills. e Williston Police Department has a policy that whatever you have in your system, whether it be alcohol or drugs, we have zero tolerance for impaired driving. Impaired driving is not tolerated in the City of Williston, he said. What bothers Strow as much as anything is that the federal government has not conducted clinical trials to determine if marijuana is safe to use as a medicine. By a vote of the people, he said marijuana could become a legal medicine. You could go to a doctor and say Im having trouble sleeping and get a prescription for medical marijuana, Strow said. High school seniors could go to a distribution center and get marijuana. What the amendment doesnt do is allow people to smoke marijuana in any public place, at a school or a place of employment; nor does it require any health insurance provider or government agency to reimburse a person for purchasing marijuana for medical use; nor does it immunize people from being arrested under federal law. Strow said there is ample evidence in other states that have legalized marijuana that it lowers property values, increases homelessness and creates other societal problems that are dicult to turn back once the drug is in widespread distribution. But he said its still on the Nov. ballot. is is some people with big bucks pushing this through, he said. Proposed Chieand Hospital Project Back on Track continued from page 1A Schupp said CBC Real Estate Development based in Kansas City, Missouri has visited the area twice over the past six weeks and is committed to securing nancing for the approximately $30 million in construction costs and $15 million in equipment. e company Schupp works for, Amerishealth, was formerly named Ameris Healthcare. e company was unable to build the Tri County Hospital when the economy crashed. e old Tri County Hospital project was 60 beds with an estimated cost of $80 million. e proposed Suwannee River Community Hospital, Inc., its replacement, would have 28 beds with a $45 million price tag. Schupp said the nancial picture for health care has improved due to reforms in the health care industry and he said the economy is stronger, though it is far from being perfect. Because of health care reform, its become much more outpatient driven, Schupp said. e backers of the hospital believe 70 percent of their revenue will come from outpatient services. Schupp said the 20-acre hospital site behind the Wal-Mart Supercenter, the planned site for the rst hospital, will also be the site of the new hospital. He said it could easily accommodate a third wing of the hospital if needed. He said the company has cleaned up the foreclosure on the property. Amerishealth is applying for a new Certicate of Need from the state Agency for Health Care Administration. One of the most important requirements for a CON is letters of support from area residents. e old CON expired. AHCA looks more favorably on original and personal letters of support for any particular project, Schupp wrote in a letter. For example, a letter of support could include a personal, family or friends experience about not having a convenient, safe, local hospital in the area. Unfortunately there may be stories where a local hospital could have been a life-saving experience for a friend or a loved one. Schupp anticipates ACHA will rule on the CON application by mid-December. Construction would begin in the rst quarter of 2015. e hospital would open a year later. e former Tri County Hospital project received 5,470 letters of support, apparently a record. Lack of hospital services in portions of Levy and all of Gilchrist and Dixie Counties has long been a complaint of residents. e ambulance ride from Chieand to Gainesville can take 45 minutes. e ride is longer for Dixie County residents. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said the project has strong support from both Gilchrist and Dixie Counties. He also noted that Amerishealth has recruited other companies for a joint venture, with one company dealing with real estate and the other with management. Schupp said the man who is interested in nancing the hospital is excited about the project. He said this is a good project. Were going to nd the funding for you, Schupp said. Bronson Clerk Asks for Big Raise, Cites Accomplishments continued from page 1AYou know what my work ethic is. I dont have to explain anymore, she said. Her assistant clerk, Susie Robinson, said Brettel is always pushing a pencil and it is rare when she isnt doing something.Library BurglariesIn other business the council took no action on a request by ocials of the Bronson Library to purchase a security system that could detect intruders inside the building and notify the sheris oce. Virginia Meisenheimer said the library has been burglarized numerous times. Something needs to be done to stem the tide of thefts. A company specializing in security systems, ADT, was scheduled to visit the library on Tuesday. Sandy Moseley, branch manager of the library, said the thieves recently broke through a door in the library and stole $20 cash. I had the money locked in the closet with a deadbolt and they kicked in the door to get the $20, she said. Many times the thieves enter through unlocked windows. e tall windows are apparently unlocked during the day by the thieves. Weeks suggested drilling in bolts above the top of the windows to prevent them from being opened. But Moseley said locked windows may not stop the burglaries. She said the thieves threw a concrete block through a door at the library on one occasion. She said they could do the same with a window.Night at e ParkKatherine Manuel received council approval to stage Bronsons Night at the Park Jazz & Old School Music Concert on Sept. 20 at the James H. Cobb Park and Sports Complex. Manuel said music will be performed by Hartley Leacock, Jr. Collective Entertainment. e night of music is being sponsored by Women on A Mission, Bronson Community Access Center and Bronson Senior Group.Supporting Task ForceCouncil members gave Brettel authority to write a letter in support for Sheri Bobby McCallums plans to apply for $46,990 of federal grant funding for the Levy MultiJurisdictional Drug Task Force. e Florida Department of Law Enforcement soon will award funds from the 2014 Byrne Memorial JAG Grant to various agencies to implement or continue countywide projects. e Levy Multi-Jurisdictional Drug Task Force has operated for years in combating illegal drug sales in the county. One of the grant requirements is for letters of consensus from units of local government to be written in support of the task force.Water Bill ProblemsBrettel said the town received a letter from an attorney representing a woman who claims her water usage rises and falls substantially from month to month for no apparent reason. e bills for the unidentied woman show water usage at her Bronson home ranging from 1,650 gallons per month to 19,600 gallons per month. Its really random, Brettel said. Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford has investigated the problem and arranged for the Florida Water Association to calibrate the meter, but the solution to the problem has yet to be revealed. Dunford isnt recommending replacement of the meter. e attorneys letter will be turned over to Town Attorney Steven Warm, who was unable to attend Tuesdays meeting. He communicated with the council during the meeting by way of a conference phone call.allocation last year to bring it in line with what Williston was receiving. Commissioners also gave both cities $12,300 last year as a one-time bonus. Johnson wanted to give Chieand and Williston the same amount of money this time around, noting the two cities are the largest population centers in the county with the greatest demand for re services. Stevens argued Chieand had received a $5,000 increase in its base funding level last year along with an additional $12,300 for equipment. He didnt want to give Chieand the $12,300 again. Joyner agreed. Johnson argued that Chieand had the highest call load last year with 1,341 calls. Were the busiest department in the county, added Chieand Fire Chief James Harris. Stevens countered that while Williston had fewer overall calls with 1,079, it had more rural calls outside the city with 643 compared to Chieands 542 rural calls, and he said that mattered more because the countys re tax revenue is supposed to be spent outside the city limits. Stevens also noted that Chieand is asking the county to approve an ALS non-transport unit to be used inside the city. He is opposed to licensing Chieands ALS non-transport unit. Chieand says the ALS truck wont cost the county anything. e county money is technically supposed to be used for rural calls, but every department uses its county re tax money and its city tax money to purchase equipment, which is used inside and outside the city limits. e debate was broken by a moment of levity. I was wondering if there is a way to make it this hard to collect the money from me, said resident Dana Sheeld, a longtime county commission observer. He drew laughter for his remark.Commissioners Compromise in Battle Over Chieand Fire Funding continued from page 1A well up fear, angst, agitation, sense of loss and anger, when the true complete facts do not support any such argument. I believe these actions are counterproductive, do nothing to foster alliances and impede positive progress. In short this adolescent indecency hints of unethical behavior, a lack of good moral judgment and at best a plain lack of concern for your fellow citizen. In my humble opinion those that stir the pot should have to lick the spoon, Johnson said in a written statement. Johnson provided the Levy County Journal with a copy of his statement but declined to identify who he was talking about. I refuse to identify any single individual, he said.Commissioner Chad Johnson Condemns Troublemakers continued from page 1A

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923The Environmental Corruption Agency Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateSome have said that we are living in a post-industrial era, while others have said that we are living in a post-racial era. But growing evidence suggests that we are living in a postthinking era. Many people in Europe and the Western Hemisphere are staging angry protests against Israels military action in Gaza. One of the talking points against Israel is that far more Palestinian civilians have been killed by Israeli military attacks than the number of Israeli civilians killed by the Hamas rocket attacks on Israel that started this latest military conict. Are these protesters aware that vastly more German civilians were killed by American bombers attacking Nazi Germany during World War II than American civilians killed in the United States by Hitlers forces? Talk show host Geraldo Rivera says that there is no way Israel is winning the battle for world opinion. But Israel is trying to win the battle for survival, while surrounded by enemies. Might that not be more important? Has any other country, in any other war, been expected to keep the enemys civilian casualties no higher than its own civilian casualties? e idea that Israel should do so did not originate among the masses but among the educated intelligentsia. In an age when scientists are creating articial intelligence, too many of our educational institutions seem to be creating articial stupidity. It is much the same story in our domestic controversies. We have gotten so intimidated by political correctness that our major media outlets dare not call people who immigrate to this country illegally illegal immigrants. Geraldo Rivera has denounced the Drudge Report for carrying news stories that show some of the negative consequences and dangers from allowing vast numbers of youngsters to enter the country illegally and be spread across the country by the Obama administration. Some of these youngsters are already known to be carrying lice and suering from disease. Since there have been no thorough medical examinations of most of them, we have no way of knowing whether, or how many, are carrying deadly diseases that will spread to American children when these unexamined young immigrants enter schools across the country. e attack against Matt Drudge has been in the classic tradition of demagogues. It turns questions of fact into questions of motive. Geraldo accuses Drudge of trying to start a civil war. Back when masses of immigrants from Europe were entering this country, those with dangerous diseases were turned back from Ellis Island. Nobody thought they had a legal or a moral right to be in America or that it was mean or racist not to want our children to catch their diseases. Even on the less contentious issue of minimum wage laws, there are the same unthinking reactions. Although liberals are usually gung ho for increasing the minimum wage, there was a sympathetic front page story in the July 29th San Francisco Chronicle about the plight of a local non-prot organization that will not be able to serve as many low-income minority youths if it has to pay a higher minimum wage. ey are seeking some kind of exemption. Does it not occur to these people that the very same thing happens when a minimum wage increase applies to prot-based employers? ey too tend to hire fewer inexperienced young people when there is a minimum wage law. is is not breaking news. is is what has been happening for generations in the United States and in other countries around the world. One of the few countries without a minimum wage law is Switzerland, where the unemployment rate has been consistently less than 4 percent for years. Back in 2003, e Economist magazine reported that Switzerlands unemployment neared a ve-year high of 3.9% in February. e most recent issue shows the Swiss unemployment rate back to a more normal 3.2 percent. Does anyone think that having minimum wage laws and high youth unemployment is better? In fact, does anyone think at all these days? omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators Syndicatee lofty motto of the Environmental Protection Agency is protecting people and the environment. In practice, however, EPA bureaucrats faithfully protect their own people and preserve the governments cesspool of manipulation, cover-ups and cronyism. Just last week, Mark Levin and his vigilant Landmark Legal Foundation went to court to ask federal district judge Royce Lamberth to sanction the EPA for destroying or failing to preserve emails and text messages that may have helped document suspected agency eorts to inuence the 2012 presidential election. e motion is part of a larger Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit to force EPA to release emails and related records from former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and others who may have delayed the release dates for hot-button environmental regulations until after the Nov. 6, 2012, presidential election. anks to Levin and Landmark, Jackson and other EPA ocials admitted in depositions that they used personal, nongovernmental email accounts to hide communications about ocial EPA business sent and received on their government-issued BlackBerries and smart phones. e agency has continued to drag its feet for two years in response to Landmarks FOIA requests. Levin minced no words: e EPA is a toxic waste dump for lawlessness and disdain for the Constitution. Not to mention disdain for the publics right to know. As Levin added: When any federal agency receives a FOIA request, the statute says it must preserve every signicant repository of records, both paper and electronic, that may contain materials that could be responsive to that request. e agency is legally obliged to notify all involved in the suit to preserve everything in their possession that could be discoverable in the litigation. But the feds have bent over backward to delay and deny. (T)he people at the EPA, from the administrator on down, think theyre above the law, that no one has the right to question what or how they do their jobs, Levin blasted. Well, theyre wrong. e laws apply to everyone, even federal bureaucrats. ats a bedrock principle the EPA has deed over and over again. As I rst reported 13 corruption-stained years ago in 2001, former EPA head Carol Browner oversaw the destruction of her computer les on her last day in oce under the Clinton administration -in clear violation of a judges order requiring the agency to preserve its records. Browner ordered a computer technician: I would like my les deleted. I want you to delete my les. In 2003, the agency was held in contempt and ned more than $300,000 in connection with another email destruction incident under Browners watch. It was Levins Landmark Legal Foundation -upheld by Judge Lamberth-that held the corruptocrats accountable then, as they are now. As President Obamas energy czar, Browner went on to bully auto execs to put nothing in writing, ever regarding secret negotiations she orchestrated on a deal to increase federal Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards. She was also singled out by Obamas own independent oilspill commission for repeatedly misrepresenting scientists ndings and doctoring data to justify the administrations draconian drilling moratorium. Browner previously had been caught by a congressional subcommittee using taxpayer funds to create and send out illegal lobbying material to more than 100 left-wing environmental organizations. She abused her oce to orchestrate a political campaign by liberal groups, who turned around and attacked Republican lawmakers for supporting regulatory reform. e names may change, but the politicized rot stays the same. e GOP sta of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee issued a detailed report this week on the secretive Billionaires Club behind EPA. e analysis exposed how a massive network of left-wing foundations, activists and wealthy donors exploits IRSapproved charitable status and tax-deductible donations to lobby illegally on behalf of the EPA and operate a green revolving door between government and far-left groups. Among the key players: the Environmental Grantmakers Association, which coordinates green grants and refuses to divulge its membership list to Congress, and Democracy Alliance, the dark-money outt led by Philip Gara LaMarche that does not disclose its members or donorrecipients. ese entities propagate the false notion that they are independent citizen-funded groups working altruistically, according to the report. In reality, they work in tandem with wealthy donors to maximize the value of the donors taxdeductible donations and leverage their combined resources to inuence elections and policy outcomes, with a focus on the EPA. Saving the planet? Ha. e leftist-controlled Environmental Corruption Agency is only in business to serve its pals and subvert its political enemies, while endangering resource security and sabotaging the deliberative process. Real environmental protection starts with draining this fetid swamp. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies (Regnery 2010).

Obama: The Armative Action President By Matt PattersonAugust 18, 2011 on http://www.americanthinker.comYears from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baing breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the worlds largest economy, direct the worlds most powerful military, execute the worlds most consequential job? Imagine a future historian examining Obamas prepresidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a community organizer; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote present); and nally an unaccomplished single term in United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions. He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obamas spiritual mentor; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obamas colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president? Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberaldom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass -held to a lower standard -because of the color of his skin. Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) non-threatening, all of which gave him a ghting chance to become the rst black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest? Podhoretz puts his nger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon -armative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all armative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves. Unfortunately, minorities often suer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualied, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance continued to page 5A

Liberals dont care if these minority students fail; liberals arent around to witness the emotional devastation and deated self esteem resulting from the racist policy that is armative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin -thats armative action in a nutshell, and if that isnt racism, then nothing is. And that is what America did to Obama. True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary. What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time Obama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualications nonetheless raved about Obamas oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. ose people -conservatives included -ought now to be deeply embarrassed. e man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichs, and thats when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth -its all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. And what about his character? Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. But really, what were we to expect? e man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly? In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Oce. But hey, at least we got to feel good about ourselves for a little while. And really, isnt that all that matters these days?Update:Authors Note. A lot of readers have written in asking me how I came to the conclusion that Obama was an unremarkable student and that he beneted from armative action. ree reasons: 1) As reported by e New York Sun: A spokesman for the university, Brian Connolly, conrmed that Mr. Obama spent two years at Columbia College and graduated in 1983 with a major in political science. He did not receive honors... In spite of not receiving honors as an undergrad, Obama was nevertheless admitted to Harvard Law. Why? 2) Obama himself has written he was a poor student as a young man. As the Baltimore Sun reported, in: Obamas book Dreams from My Father,....the president recalled a time in his life...when he started to drift away from the path of success. I had learned not to care, Obama wrote. ... Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could aord it. But his mother confronted him about his behavior. Dont you think youre being a little casual about your future? she asked him, according to the book. ... One of your friends was just arrested for drug possession. Your grades are slipping. You havent even started on your college applications. 3) Most damning to me is the presidents unwillingness to make his transcripts public. If Obama had really been a stellar student with impeccable grades as an undergrad, is there any doubt they would have been made public by now and trumpeted on the front page of the New York Times as proof of his brilliance? To me it all adds up to armative action. Mattpattersonline.comObama: The Armative Action President continued from page 4A Commentary: County Commissioners Protected from Tough Questions at Chieand Forum continued from page 1A e Journals question sheets were unsigned. ere were seven other questions submitted, apparently by residents attending the forum, and all the questions withheld were far more probing than those asked of the candidates. Moderator, Susan Haines, a 35-year member of the VFW Ladies Auxiliary and county commission employee at the county attorneys oce, cut the questioning of county commission candidates short by withholding certain questions. She told the Journal Monday she allowed only questions dealing with countywide issues to be asked and she didnt allow questions that would place any candidate at a disadvantage, nor did she allow questions that she felt were only about Chieand. What disadvantage is it for a county commissioner to be asked a question that aects the lives and pocketbooks of every Levy County resident? Is this not the very business of the county commissioners? Haines explanation for the censorship of certain questions revealed the diculty involved for a county employee having to ask questions she deemed too dicult of two of her bosses running for re-election. is conict of interest was a surprising turn of events for those in the audience who wanted to hear the county commission candidates talk about issues that really mattered to them. Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson, who represents District 2, and County Commissioner Ryan Bell from District 4 were among the candidates being questioned by Haines. ey are two of her ve bosses. She should not have taken it upon herself to screen questions she felt might embarrass her employers. e Journal believes none of the unasked questions would have placed any candidate at a disadvantage. Haines indicated at the forum that the censored questions would be mailed by Citizen Editor Lou Jones to the candidates for their response. She claims Jones had nothing to do with selecting the questions that would not be asked of the county commission candidates, but it was Jones who walked among audience members collecting the questions and it was Jones who told Haines the unanswered questions would be sent to the news media and the candidates. Jones told a Journal reporter in advance of the forum that someone from the VFW would be collecting the handwritten questions from the audience. She said the forum would be patterned after the Cedar Key Lions Club forums. Instead she collected the written notes herself and handed them to Haines. ere was no announcement at the start of the forum that the VFW would censor questions that placed a candidate at a disadvantage, nor was it mentioned that the VFW would not allow any questions dealing with Chieand at a Chieand forum, nor did Haines mention that only questions dealing with what Haines perceived as countywide issues would be allowed. We wonder if anyone in the audience would have bothered to write down questions had they known about the undisclosed rules in advance. e Chieand ALS issue has countywide ramications and is a sensitive issue with all ve county commissioners. e fact that a county commission employee made the decision to shield commissioners from answering the ALS question amounts to censorship and ugly county politics. e ALS question could have been answered equally well by commissioners and their opponents. e candidates could have said they favor or oppose it. But County Commissioners Chad Johnson and Ryan Bell, who are seeking re-election, have danced around the subject in interviews with the Journal, saying they have many unanswered questions and cant commit to the project. Jones sent the Journal an email the day after the forum saying the unasked questions at the forum were being sent to the candidates. She sent the Journal a list of nine unasked questions for the county commission candidates and four unasked questions for candidates for the U.S. Congress. She said the unasked questions at the forum deserved answers. ats true, but the public deserved to hear inpromptu answers to the questions instead of rehearsed or prepackaged answers. In her email to the Journal after the forum, Jones said reporters in attendance at the forum had the opportunity to ask the candidates questions after the forum ended, which is true, but her comment sidestepped the issue of what went wrong at the forum. e Journal has interviewed both county commissioners and all their opponents on the issue of ALS non-transport. e Journal is aware of those answers. e answers have been published in the Journal. What the Journal wanted to hear at the forum was live answers to the questions about ALS non-transport and the 1 cent sales tax. Asking those questions in a public forum with members of the public listening to every word is quite dierent than a reporter walking up to a county commissioner after a political forum and asking them for a comment. e pressure of answering a question in front of a live audience can inspire more truthful answers or at least require the candidates to confront the issue in a more transparent forum. Censoring questions in a public forum casts more doubt on a political process that has led many citizens to simply boycott elections. Some believe the entire political process is tainted by corruption, and now censorship. And many cast the news media in the same light, and for good reason. When the news media cant be completely trustworthy in the political process, there is no hope.Censored QuestionsDuring the candidate forum in Chieand the following questions were put aside by the host groups to be sent separately to the candidates to answer at another time. e censored questions were emailed to the Journal with the included instructions by Chieand Citizen Editor Lou Jones: You will need to let the candidates know when you want their answers. ese questions were not asked at the candidates forum. You have the opportunity to provide written answers. For the county commission race: 1) What are you going to do about EMS sending money to Lewisville, S.C. ? And how much do they keep out of all EMS money? 2) Should assessments be put on the ballot? 3) Are more tax raises (in store) for the over taxed residents? 4) What are the best uses for the $2.5 million of sales tax revenue? Do you believe the revenue is spent wisely? 5) What can the county do to eliminate the impasse between Levy County and Chieand concerning ALS? 6) Shell Mound Road and Fowlers Road toward that park the road needs serious help, i.e. re-paved. What will you do? 7) Do you support Chieands request to establish an Advanced Life Support unit at Chieand Fire Rescue? Yes or No. Please explain your answer. 8) What can the state or Congress do to help Levy County and Chieand eliminate the impasse of the ALS issue? 9) Our water supply is my concern. Is there anything being done to conserve our water? Congress 1) Are more tax raises (in store) for the over taxed residents? 2) What can the state or Congress do to help Levy County and Chieand eliminate the impasse of the ALS issue? 3) I am concerned about immigration. What will you do to stop the ow of illegals entering our country? 4) I am concerned about Obama going over the head of Congress. Can that be stopped.

Brown said the county needs to be careful not to allow any company that submits a bid to be involved in assisting the county with writing specications. Engineer Andrew Carswell told the Journal the low bidder didnt assist in writing specications. e company provided a cost estimate in advance, but then submitted a sealed bid that was higher than the original estimate. e building will cover the countys landll leachate collection tank. Ayers Carpentry Inc. submitted the low bid of $57,650. e Ayers bid was more than $40,000 lower than the next closest bid and more than $96,000 lower than the highest bid. ose numbers caught the eye of commissioners. ey wondered why there was such a big dierence between the low and high bidders and wondered if they were getting a good deal or if the work or materials would be inferior. Commissioner Chad Johnson wondered if were not cheating ourselves. Carswell said the sealed bid submitted by Ayers followed the specications and he didnt anticipate any problems. Landll Director Benny Jerrels said he has seen Ayers construction work and it looked good. e fact that Ayers had given Mills Engineering a cost estimate before the bids were sent out was learned after commissioners pressed Carswell and Jerrels for more information about the bids. Commissioners have been criticized for not always strictly adhering to their purchase policy that spells out how bidding and purchases should take place. Commissioner John Meeks motion to approve Ayers as the low bidder passed unanimously. e other bidders were Nooney Construction, Inc. at $99,962, J and L Custom Construction at $154,260 and JoyTech Construction at $125,000. Levy County currently hauls its garbage to an out of county landll, but the garbage that was deposited at the Levy County Landll prior to this arrangement leaches contaminated water that has to be treated. Landll ocials recommended constructing a pole building over the leachate tank to prevent rainwater from adding to the leachate that has to be hauled away by GRU and treated at the cost of $400 for every 600 gallons.County Attorney Cautions Commissioners on Bidding Process Yoho Bill Signed Into Law by the PresidentWashington, DC Congressman Ted S. Yohos H.R. 1528, e Veterinary Medicine Mobility Act (VMMA), was signed into law today by President Obama. is is the rst bill Congressman Yoho has had signed into law, and now places him among only eight Freshman Members to have had this achievement. e bill makes modications to the Controlled Substances Act and Drug Enforcement Administration policy that, to date, has prohibited veterinarians from transporting controlled substances to administer and treat patients outside of the registered location. e Congressman released the following statement: I was pleased to hear the President signed the VMMA into law today. is bill will not only benet all who practice large animal veterinary medicine but the farmers and ranchers who rely on them. is law will allow veterinarians to practice their profession without fear of unnecessary government intrusion. I am thankful for my fellow vet and colleague, Representative Schraders hard work on this important policy change. -------------------Yoho Votes to Secure Southern Border and End Presidents Administrative AmnestyWashington, DCCongressman Ted S. Yoho (FL-03) voted in favor of border strengthening legislation as well as a bill to end Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). Both bills were redrafted and strengthened after House Conservatives expressed concern over loopholes in the original language. Congressman Yoho is a cosponsor of Congresswoman Blackburns DACA legislation in an eort to stop the Presidents administrative amnesty. Congressman Yoho gave the following statement after his vote: is combination of bills strengthens the border, allows governors to mobilize their National Guard, and stops loopholes in our current immigration law. e border bill is a stronger bill than we had before us yesterday, and combined with the bill that ends administrative amnesty is a strong signal to the White House and the Senate that the House of Representatives will not tolerate the agrant dismissal of our rule of law. We are a nation of immigrants, but we are also a nation of laws. To allow folks to cut in line ies in the face of the very foundation of our countrythe American Dream. e American Dream is built on the notion that if you work hard and follow the rule of law, you will nd success regardless of your country of origin, economic status, gender, or religion. e combination of bills today stops the President from using his pen to circumvent the rule of law to give amnesty and gives our border the protection it needs. Summary of House Border Crisis Supplemental Package Funding Included in H.R.5230 Funding is oset by rescinding unobligated funds from accounts in DHS, DoD, DoJ, and Foreign Aid. $405 million for the Department of Homeland Security to boost border security and law enforcement activities. $22 million to accelerate judicial proceedings for immigrants. $70 million for National Guard border eorts: $35 million for the federal deployment of the Guard and $35 million for reimbursing states for their use of the Guard on the Southern Border. $197 million for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to provide temporary housing and humanitarian assistance to unaccompanied minors. $40 million in repatriation assistance to Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. is funding is redirected from within existing foreign aid for Central American countries so that these repatriation activities are immediately prioritized. Policy Proposals included in H.R. 5230 No Amnesty Amends the Tracking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008 so all unaccompanied alien children (UACs) are treated the same as Mexicans and Canadians for the purpose of removals. UACs who have a credible fear of persecution or who have been tracked must appear before an immigration judge within 14 days of their initial screening and shall be detained until their appearance. Provides authority for the Secretary of State to negotiate agreements with foreign countries regarding UACs, which include protections for children who are returned to their country of nationality.

If you havent been out for a while, come on out and check out the changes weve made. e rocking chairs are waiting for you and the air conditioners are keeping the place cool.U.S. 27A in Downtown Williston Named for Slain Police Ocer continued from page 1A Watch 7/30/88. State Rep. Charlie Stone was contacted by Williston police and agreed to introduce legislation naming U.S. 27A (Noble Avenue) for Moss. On the day of the dedication, Lori Moss, Stone and Mosss brother Jim were there to witness the naming of the dedication of the highway. Moss died in a heroic way. Mosss regular shift with the Williston Police Department was 11 p.m. to 7 a.m. On the night he was killed, he decided to leave his bulletproof vest at home because the patrol car air conditioner was broken and the weather was hot. e man who murdered him, 19-year-old David Jenkins, had just moved in with his mother and stepfather in Bronson. He had a sizeable criminal record and was prone to ts of anger when not on his medicine. His probation had been transferred from Maryland to Florida. He had not taken his medicine for some time prior to the shooting. Jenkins stole a car and drove it to SW 6th St. and SW 1st Ave in Williston where he parked it. Moss discovered the unoccupied vehicle, which had not been reported as stolen at that point. Ocer Bruce Snyder, who was in his own patrol car, noticed continuing calls from the dispatcher trying to contact Moss. Snyder drove to the location where Moss had checked out and found his patrol car running, the drivers side door ajar and a police radio on the seat. It appeared Moss had exited the car in a hurry or stepped out to speak to someone. Snyder decided to search for Moss. Walking in the direction Mosss patrol car was pointing he eventually wound up at Dougs Auto Parts on West Noble Avenue. He turned down the alley between the auto parts store and the building next door. e back of the auto parts store had a re escape that went to the second oor. Snyder climbed the stairs for a better view of the weed infested space littered with old car parts between the two stores. Even with the full moon it was dark between the stores. Looking down, Snyder saw a halo of light in the weeds below. He found Mosss ashlight pointed down and emitting only a small circle of light. Snyder began searching for Moss, knowing he was probably nearby. A few yards to the southeast of where Snyder found the ashlight, he spotted Moss lying almost face down in a bed of red ants. His .357 revolver was under his left leg. e time was 2:30 a.m. Lying nearby on his back was Jenkins. Jenkins had shot Moss in the neck with a .25 caliber pistol he had stolen in the burglary of a Williston home. Moss returned re, shooting Jenkins ve times and killing him. It appeared to Snyder that Jenkins had crouched down on his knees in the tall weeds to hide from or wait for Moss to arrive because Jenkins had cached dirt on one of his knees. Jenkins was carrying a single bullet. He used it to kill Moss. Snyder called an ambulance. en Police Chief Gene Hartman headed to Shands Hospital at 2:38 a.m. ree minutes later he was told to change direction and head to the scene of the shooting. Dispatch contacted the Levy County Sheris Oce homicide detective at 2:53 a.m. Dispatch contacted the Marion County Sheris Oce homicide unit at 2:57 a.m. Moss had passed away. Strow said he has enormous respect for Moss and his willingness to walk into a dark space between two stores to search for a suspect. He said police ocers never know what lies ahead of them when they climb in a patrol car and begin their rounds. ey never know who will walk through the front door of the police station. Moss knew the risks. When you have someone who has the intestinal fortitude to walk into the darkness like that, hes a hero and he should always be remembered as a hero, Strow said. Moss was preceded in death three years earlier by his 5-year-old son Shane who died of a heart defect. Shanes death devastated both of his parents. In her book, Lori Moss said the loss of his young son seemed to inspire Moss to work with underprivileged kids and those who were at risk of getting into trouble with the law. She had grown up with her future husband. She said the only two things Moss ever wanted to do was to be the fth member of e Beatles rock group, which of course was impossible, or to be a police ocer. He worked for several years as the Williston Police Departments animal control ocer and did ride alongs with certied ocers, hoping to get his chance. He hung around the police department as much as possible. When he graduated from the state police academy, his dream of becoming a police ocer was realized. Lori Moss said her husbands commitment to his profession and the people of Williston was illustrated by his nal moments as a police ocer. After being mortally wounded, he returned re and killed his attacker. He did his job the best he could. e stretch of road where he was murdered now bears his name, an eternal testament to his life and career in law enforcement. In the end, he did his job to the best of his abilities and maybe thats why so many people see him as such a hero, she said in the preface to her book. He accomplished everything he had been trained to do except going home at the end of his shift. Cpl.

For more information call 352/221-2003, or 352/493-1175 or visit www. oldtimechurch.com I had a few minutes before Church this Sunday, so I moseyed over to the Childrens Class. I wasnt scheduled to teach, but I always like to tousle a few mop tops before the service. Just as I arrived, a visitor came through the back door, looking around, sort of wary, like they tend to be. Eager to put him at ease I stuck out a hand and said cheerfully, Good morning, my names Guy. Suddenly he threw back against the wall in a fright. His eye balls popped out on stems like an old crawsh. I didnt realize it, but because of my southern drawl he thought Id said, Good morning, my names GOD! What? he gasped and swallowed hard. Im Guy, I repeated, Im glad you came today. A bead of sweat popped up on his forehead. Ya ya ya youre God? he gulped. I guess he was hoping for someone a little more impressive. Either way, his eyes were sure bugging. Mine were too when once I found out what he thought Id said! After we got all that straightened out, I skedaddled over to join the praise team in the prayer room. Id had my ll of meeting and greeting for one day. I sat down and began to rattle o my prayers silently to the Lord, going through my regular list like a kid in Santas lap. When I got to the part about how I wanted Him to use me, a still small voice rose up in me and asked, Well, have you gured it out yet? Are you Guy? Or are you God? I was nearly oored. Surely you know my heart Lord, I pleaded. I prayed, but I couldnt get it o my mind. Had I let the cares of this life inch me back into a place where I am more concerned with building my own kingdom than His? I began to examine myself and I asked God to forgive me if Id lost my focus. As we came out to play the rst song I couldnt believe my eyes. e rst song on the list was entitled You Are God. I just laughed and whispered, You sure are! I sang that song with a little extra conviction that morning. e Lord sure has a way of driving His points across. Its not that we necessarily mean to, but its awful easy to lose focus nowadays. We live in such a fast food society. Have it your way! Just do it! No interest, no payments until youre in over your head! Its like were constantly being bombarded by the devils own 24-hour shopping infomercial. Get your own genuine imitation faux costume jewelry ball and chain now, before theyre gone! If were not careful we can become so mesmerized by the worlds sales pitch we never take the time to cultivate the eternal pearl of a great price that God wants to grow within us. Eventually we nd ourselves cluttered, unfullled, and unproductive, like fools chasing a vapor. In other words, if God is your co-pilot, I would seriously suggest switching seats! God is the giver of every good and perfect gift. He wants so desperately for His children to enjoy them. e 28th Chapter of Deuteronomy lists many of the blessings He promises will overtake us if we listen and obey Him. But He said overtake. How can something overtake you if you are chasing it? Jesus taught, ( But more than anything else, put Gods work rst and do what he wants. en the other things will be yours as well. Matthew 6:33 CEV). Gods promises are yes and amen for those who keep their eye on the prize, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Only in seeking the Lord and His will for our lives will we nd the true fulllment that our hearts are longing for. In chasing the blessing instead of the Blesser we miss our whole purpose of our life, and the best gift of all, a real relationship with Jesus. Dont you dare trade your birthright for a bowl of soup like Esau. Dont walk away sad like the rich young ruler. But anyway For meet and greet purposes, I think Ill change my name to Purvis. I dont need any more confusion in my life. Guy Sheeld www.butanyway.org continued to 8B

When I pulled up in the driveway behind my house, my cell phone rang and it was my daughter. I stood there talking beside my 4-wheel drive utility truck with a battery-powered chain saw that has a 10-foot berglass pole for a handle tied on the side of it.Suddenly I heard a noise above me in the oak tree and there were a few twigs that fell on me and then something a little heavier hit my shoulder. Still talking to my daughter I reached up to pull the branch o my shoulder only it was not a branch, it was a @&%@%$^ snake. It was not a dangerous snake, unless you are scared of snakes! Well, I didnt hang up my cellphone, I just threw it down and let out some fancy cuss words. I was moving so fast I didnt see that pole-saw sticking out of the back of that 4-wheeler and I hit that pole so hard it should have turned the 4-wheeler over. When I got the snake o of me it crawled under the 4-wheeler and disappeared. My cell phone was laying on the ground and my daughter was trying to get me. When I settled down and answered her she wanted to know what was going on. I told her about the snake falling on me. She said, I knew something bad had happened the way you was cussin and stompin around. en we started laughing but while it was going on it werent funny.
