An engineering study conrmed sinkhole activity at the south end of the Police and Fire Department Building where reghters sleep at night. e sidewalk outside their barracks has pulled away from the foundation. Metal siding has peeled from the exterior wall. e breakroom oor is sinking in some spots and rising in other locations. Fireghters have identied a sweet spot on the oor of their break room where a billiard ball can be set down and will roll on its own out of the room and into the next room before taking a sharp left down a short hallway. A geotechnical report identied sinkhole activity under portions of the building, but it could be 30-45 days before the city uses support pilings and grout to correct the problem. Meanwhile reghters know they are sleeping in shifting building. Its always a concern when you go to sleep, that you could wake up at the bottom of a hole, said Volunteer Fireghter Kyle Spencer. ats always something I think about. Im here basically every night. Volunteer Fireghter Cody Murphy agreed it is a concern, but he said they accept the risk to perform their jobs as reghters. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commission sta members last week estimated the cost of establishing an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck in Chieand would be in the neighborhood of $200,000 including the hiring of three full-time paramedics that the county would require, but city ocials doubted the price tag would be that high. e discussion of costs was part of the long-awaited Aug. 6 meeting between city and county ocials and the countys medical director at the Levy County Department of Public Safety complex seven miles south of Bronson. e meeting gave the county and city ocials a forum to talk about the cost of establishing an ALS truck in Chieand and what rules and procedures the county would impose on the city. Levy County Commissioners operate the county Emergency Medical Services program that includes six ambulances, soon to be seven. e county employs paramedics and emergency medical technicians who work under the countys medical director, Dr. Jason Jones of Shands Inglis Planning Commission Proposes Zoning Changes at Public Hearingfrom Undesignated to Industrial & Commerciale Town of Inglis will be holding a Public Hearing to review proposed amendments to the Ocial Zoning Map of the Town of Inglis by the Planning Commission of the Town of Inglis, Florida which serves as the Local Planning Agency. On Tuesday August 19, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. in the Town of Inglis Town Hall, 135 Hwy 40 West, comments, objections and recommendations regarding the proposed amendments on the properties listed below to the Ocial Zoning Map will be heard by the Planning Commission of the Town of Inglis at a public hearing. Public Hearing will be held for Z13-4: an application by the Town of Inglis to amend the Towns Zoning Map by changing the zoning Medical Training Requirements and Costs Lead Discussion at Commission ALS Meeting Valdosta Project to Stem Tide of Sewage Spills in Withlacoochee RiverBy Terry Witt Senior Sta Writer Live Oak e director of Georgias environmental protection agency told North Florida ocials Tuesday that Valdosta has begun on an aggressive $70 million project to relocate the citys wastewater treatment plant and related facilities farther inland to prevent future spills of raw sewage into the Withlacoochee River. e relocation of the plant and force main is expected to be completed by the end of 2015. e good news is were on an aggressive schedule to relocate the force main and manholes and move the plant by the end of next year, said Judson Turner, director of the Environmental Protection Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources, the agency responsible for shielding the river from pollution. Cli Lewis, assistant branch chief for Georgia EPD said there have been 20 sewage spills from the Valdosta Wastewater Treatment Plant since late 2012 and early 2013. Two of the largest continued to page 5A continued to page 8A continued to page 5A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand City Commissioners decided Monday to continue working with county ocials on securing a county license for an Advanced Life Support non-transport unit in spite of rising cost estimates from the county. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he sees nothing but roadblocks being set up by the county. I dont see the county giving us any help with ALS, said Pomeroy. e next step for the city is to wait for Levy County Public Safety Director David Knowles to deliver documents to City Manager Mary Ellzey explaining the training requirements for paramedics and the protocols for working in emergency medical services. Knowles failed to deliver the paperwork by Monday as promised. Without the paperwork, the city wont be able to calculate the exact cost of operating an ALS unit in Chieand. City ocials also wont know what the county expects of them for the training of paramedics. Its obvious from the discussion that the county medical director and public safety director are in agreement that we must meet the countys training standards, said City Attorney Norm Fugate. City commissioners also have not decided whether they will pay any portion of the fee being charged by the county commissions Tallahassee law rm to review the county special assessment ordinance that funds the countys Emergency Medical Service. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said the fee could be up to $11,000. e county says the ordinance will probably have to be tweaked to accommodate an ALS non-transport unit in Chieand. Another stumbling block could be the countys requirement for the city to hire three full-time paramedics to operate the ALS unit around the clock, 365 days a year. County ocials estimated the startup cost for employing the paramedics and equipping an ALS unit at $200,000. at gure seemed excessively high to city ocials. Chieand Refuses to Give Up on ALS By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterWilliston came to Bronsons rescue on Aug. 7 when a water main broke that the town couldnt handle without assistance. Bronson Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford said Williston was neighborly about coming over to help in an emergency. ats the way it should be, Dunford said. Williston Public Works Director C.J. Zimoski worked with Dunford sealing o the broken pipe. Dunford said he appreciated the assistance. A trenching machine accidentally struck an old water tap that no one knew about and caused a ood of water. e broken pipe was down the road from e Childrens Table o State Road 24. Bronson didnt have a metal sleeve that would wrap around the pipe to seal it o. Williston was called. Zimoski surveyed the situation, but he didnt have the right size sleeve either. Williston City Manager Scott Lippmann arrived to see what he could do to assist. It was clear they needed help, Lippmann said.

John Anthony Coraci 57, was one of eight defendants to come before Davis for sentencing. Coraci was stopped by Williston Police on March 24 for driving a motorized bicycle down U.S. 27A without a drivers license. Court records said Coracis license had been suspended six times and he had been arrested four times for drunken driving. He was listed as a habitual trac oender. David ordered Coraci to pay court costs and $100 to Williston Police to cover investigative costs. Latoya Evette Pringle 30, Reddick, Fl., was sentenced to 1 year and 1 week in state prison for violating her probation. Court records said she violated her probation on June 6 when she refused to allow a probation ocer to walk through a locked gate at her home, and she also failed to show up at probation oce on June 13 and 20. e original charge stemmed from an incident on Dec. 7, 2013 at an apartment where Pringle waved a knife at a man when he refused to step away from her door. He had dropped by the check on the well-being of another woman in Pringles apartment. Pringle was arrested for aggravated assault. Madison K. Day 25, Inglis, was sentenced 180 days in the Levy County Detention Center and given credit for 54 days served after pleading no contest to two counts of possession of a controlled substance. When Levy County sheris deputies arrived at her home for an unrelated purpose they saw Day and knew she was wanted on an active Brevard County warrant. When they caught up to her, she began crying and shaking, saying she was in possession of a lot of drugs. She was correct. Ocers found clear plastic baggie containing crystal methamphetamine in her wallet. In her sock they found 11 hydrocodone p ills, 4 oxycodone pills and 3 alprazolam pills. Solomon John Hall 43, Chieand, was sentenced to 364 days in the Levy County Detention Center and was given credit for 189 days served after pleading no contest to resisting an ocer without violence, possession of drug paraphernalia and maintaining a dwelling where drugs are used or sold.

By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County sheris investigators say a 13-yearold Williston boy appears to have been the victim of an accidental hanging on Aug. 7 at a residence south of Williston. Lt. Scott Tummond said based on the preparations the boy made he appeared to be seeking attention from his family. He didnt mean to kill himself. What investigators have determined from the evidence, is that it was an attempt to gain attention, Tummond said. Unfortunately things went horribly wrong and he lost his life. His parents discovered the body. Tummond said the hearts of the employees at the sheris oce go out to the family of the victim. We have a family over there that is in a precarious state of grieving. No parents want to be preceded in death by a child, Tummond said. Tummond said there is no indication of foul play in the boys death. e sheris oce did not release the name of the victim. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA 6-year-old boy was killed on Aug. 7 by the familys two pit bulldogs at a home in the Fanning Springs area, according to the Levy County Sheris Oce. Joel Chireleison, son of Joel Claar and Kristy Chireleison, had been staying at his aunts house while his father was at work. e boy had been staying at the home three or four times a week for the past several months, according to Sheri Bobby McCallum. e child was found dead in the front yard of the home of his paternal aunt, Heather Claar, at 7297 N.W. 162nd St., Trenton in Levy County. e child suered injuries consistent with being attacked by a dog or dogs. Claar, who lives at the location of the attack, allowed the victim to go outside the home to play. At the same time, she allowed two of her pit bulldogs outside. For reasons unknown, the dogs attacked and killed the child outside the residence. ere were no eyewitnesses to the attack. e dogs were euthanized Friday, according to Levy County Animal Control. Four other dogs were seized on the property and remain quarantined. e owners have not decided if they want them returned. e other four dogs were not involved in the attack, McCallum said. e victim was not a stranger to the dogs and had been around them on a regular basis. Lt. Scott Tummond said autopsy results have not been released. McCallum said there has been no discussion or decision regarding potential negligence on the part of the aunt. Once the autopsy results are released, McCallum said the sheris oce would know more. Tummond said the dogs were familiar with the child and there was no reason to believe they would attack the boy. He said sheris investigators will probably have a conversation with the State Attorney in regard to the issue of negligence. Tummond said the incident was stressful for the family as well as law enforcement, Emergency Medical Service responders and Levy County Animal Control ocers who responded. Some of the rst responders from the sheris oce are having a dicult time dealing with this. ey are parents themselves, Tummond said. e family has asked for privacy as they grieve for the child.

The cost of the space occupied LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Readin, Writin and Social Justice Agitatin Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateNew Yorks mayor, Bill de Blasio, like so many others who call themselves progressive, is gung-ho to solve social problems. In fact, he is currently on a crusade to solve an educational problem that doesnt exist, even though there are plenty of other educational problems that denitely do exist. e non-existent problem is the use of tests to determine who gets admitted to the citys three most outstanding public high schools -Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech. ese admissions tests have been used for generations, and the students in these schools have had spectacular achievements for generations. ese achievements include many Westinghouse Science awards, Intel Science awards and -in later life -Pulitzer Prizes and multiple Nobel Prizes. Graduates of Bronx Science alone have gone on to win ve Nobel Prizes in physics alone. ere are Nobel Prize winners from Stuyvesant and Brooklyn Tech as well. If it aint broke, dont x it is a motto that Mayor de Blasio and many other activist politicians pay no attention to. He is also out to curtail charter schools, which include schools that have achieved outstanding education results for poor minority students, who cannot get even adequate results in all too many of the other public schools. What is wrong with charter schools and with elite high schools like Stuyvesant, Bronx Science and Brooklyn Tech? Despite their educational achievements, they have political problems. e biggest political problem is that the teachers unions dont like them -and the teachers unions are the 800-pound gorilla among the special interests in Bill de Blasios Democratic Party. e next biggest political problem is that people who dont pass the tests for the elite public high schools dont want to have to pass tests to get in. eir politicians have been denouncing these admissions tests for decades, and so have various other ethnic community leaders. ese include spokesmen for civil rights organizations, who think their civil rights include getting into these elite schools, whether they qualify or not. Finally, there are the intelligentsia, who all too often equate achievement with privilege. In times past, such people called Stuyvesant a free prep school for Jews and a privileged little ivory tower. at was clever, but cleverness is not wisdom. Back in those days, Jewish youngsters were over-represented among the students at all three elite public high schools. Today it is Asian students who are a majority at those same schools -more than twice as many Asians as whites in all three schools. Black and Hispanic students are rare at all three elite public high schools, and becoming rarer. Many among the intelligentsia and politicians express astonishment that the ethnic makeup of these schools is so dierent from the demographic makeup of the city. But such dierences between groups are common in countries around the world. But in each country there are people who say that it is strange -and demand a solution to this problem. In Malaysia, for example, before group quotas were established at the countrys universities, students from the Chinese minority earned more than 400 engineering degrees in the 1960s, while students from the Malay majority earned just 4. When a university was established in 19th century Romania, there were more German students than Romanian students, and most of the professors were German. e same was true for most of the 19th century when a university was established in Estonia. In none of these cases did the group that was over-represented have any power to discriminate against groups that were under-represented. If racism is the reason why there are so few blacks in Stuyvesant High School, why were blacks a far higher proportion in Stuyvesant in earlier times, as far back as 1938? Was there less racism in 1938? Was there less poverty among blacks in 1938? We know that there were far fewer black children raised in single-parent homes back then and there was far less social degeneracy represented by things like gangsta rap. If Mayor de Blasio wants to solve real problems, let him take these on. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateIts back-to-school season across the country. But in an increasing number of districts, back to school doesnt mean back to learning. Under the reign of social justice indoctrinators, academics are secondary to political agitation. Activism trumps achievement. In Massachusetts, the John J. Duggan Middle School will open on August 25 with a new name and mission. It is now a social justice magnet school. As a hiring advertisement for teachers explained earlier this year, the emphasis will be on helping students develop the necessary skills to analyze and synthesize information and to generate empathy by looking at multiple sides of important issues facing the world, be that hunger, water quality, racial barriers, child labor or imbalance of power. Concise writing, as you can see, is not on the social justice pedagogues agenda. Oh, and forget about memorizing times tables or mastering the scientic method. e new principal says the schools primary job is teaching fairness. Duggan Middle Schools junior lobbying factory is serious about creating 21st century global citizens, and it begins with understanding who we are as members of each of those communities. e ultimate goal of these social justice prep schools: creating left-wing political advocates. At the Crescent Heights Social Justice Magnet School in Los Angeles, children will work on action projects tied to the United Nations Millennium Development Goals. Students will spend the academic year transforming into agents of change. Yes, they will learn language arts. But basic reading and writing are only a focus of the magnet school, the founders explain, because we want our students to recognize injustice in their world or the world at large and be able to fully express their outrage, their plan of attack, their progress in this endeavor. In Chicago, Ground Zero for social justice brainwashing, the Social Justice High School (SOJO), follows a similar mission. Activist teachers openly foster identity politics and systematically undermine individualism. eir specialties: struggle and sacrice. SOJOs mission statement sounds like a pot-addled Oberlin College freshmans -er, freshpersons -Sociology 101 term paper: rough collective community power, we commit to a conscious eort to overcome the intended historical obstacles that have been designed to disempower and divide our communities. At the Paulo Freire Social Justice Charter School, also in Massachusetts, students wont learn math. eyll be taught social justice math. (Freire was a Brazilian leftist who wrote a social justice teachers Bible called Pedagogy of the Oppressed.) His acolytes explain the push for radicalization of math: Math is an instrument for detailing social justice issues and developing critical consciousness. In the hands of progressive teachers, math becomes an analytic tool to bring awareness to important world issues. In other words: One plus one equals ats unfair! New York City schools have been infested for years with city-funded math teachers who train students in seeing social problems from a radical anticapitalist perspective, as City Journals Sol Stern reported. As Ive noted previously, the Rethinking Mathematics: Teaching Social Justice by the Numbers guide rejects traditional white male patriarchal methods of teaching computation and statistics in favor of politically correct number-crunching. Out: Algebraic equations, geometric proofs and advanced calculus. In: Racial proling, unemployment rate calculation, the war in Iraq, environmental racism, globalization, wealth distribution and poverty, wheelchair ramps, urban density, HIV/AIDS, deconstructing Barbie, junk food advertising to children, and lotteries. State education codes mandate value neutrality in the classroom. But in schools of social justice, every academic subject is a means to a progressive (anti-American, procollectivist, redistributive) ideological end. e radical transformation of K-12 classrooms into leftist agitation labs is embedded in the mission of countless teachers colleges and universities, which require social justice training or oer special certication in its indoctrination techniques. ese teaching institutions are pumping out generations of educators who cast themselves as leaders against social struggle -instead of facilitators of intellectual inquiry. Passing the most rigorous student standards in the world wont amount to squat as long as the overseers of public education exploit government schools as community organizing vehicles for captive tots, tweens and teens.Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks and Cronies (Regnery 2010).

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Letter to the EditorAttacking Achievement e Florida Police Chiefs Association (FPCA) today urged Floridians to rethink their support of the proposed amendment to legalize marijuana in Florida, calling the eort a potentially dangerous threat to families and communities. Regardless of any state laws, recreational marijuana use is still illegal on the federal level because of its high potential for abuse and the fact that there is no currently accepted national standard for use as a medical treatment, said Chief Frank Kitzerow, President of the FPCA. Its important to understand that expanding the use of marijuana for medical purposes is not a safer way to use the drug. Studies show that marijuana use and criminal involvement other than drug use are highly related. Medical marijuana is often sold in storefront dispensaries; in other states, the storefront dispensaries have become magnets for crime and increased law enforcement costs. According to statistics provided by the citys Department of Safety, Denver recorded 7,000 reported crimes within 1,000 feet of dispensaries in the rst six months of both 2012 and 2013. Statistics have shown that marijuana also plays a signicant role in car accidents. Between 2006 and 2010, the Colorado Department of Highway Safety reported that at least 183 people were killed by drivers who tested positive for cannabis, after Colorado legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes. ere are more than 120 ER visits related to marijuana use for every 100,000 people in the United States. e expansion of marijuana use has also been shown to have a negative impact on surrounding business communities. A study found employees who tested positive for marijuana have 55 percent more industrial accidents and 85 percent more injuries than non-users, and 78 percent have higher absentee rates than non-users. Drugusing employees have been shown to have up to 300 percent higher medical costs, which increase insurance rates for employers and employees. For more information on the potential impacts of the proposed amendment, please visit http://www. dontletoridagotopot.com. e FPCA is the fourth largest state police chiefs association in the nation and is composed of more than 750 of the states top law enforcement executives. FPCA serves municipal police departments, airport police, college and university police, private business and security rms, as well as federal, state and county law enforcement agencies. e FPCA has members representing every region of the state.Florida Police Chiefs Urge Caution on Medical Marijuana Legalization

Yoho gave the following statement after his vote: Our veterans deserve access to quality care and they need it now. e bill we passed this evening, aims to do just that. Not only does this legislation provide the necessary funds for our veterans to get quality care, but it also allows our heroes to nd care outside the system at non-VA hospitals at the VAs expense. After many discussions with our veterans in the 3rd District, I have found that this is a much needed and much wanted x. Additionally, this legislation forces independent assessments of hospital care to ensure our veterans are getting the best care possible. ese assessments will require an increased focus on new scheduling and appointments techniques that will provide transparency and accountability. No more secret waiting lists. As a proud representative of over 100,000 veterans I remain committed to making sure they receive quality care as quickly as possible. ey stood up for us, they deserve a government that stands for them.

Valdosta is under a $50 million state consent order issued in 2013 requiring the city to remedy the sewage spills by the end of 2017. Turner said the city is moving forward at a much quicker pace in an eort to prevent future spills from contaminating the Withlacoochee River. Turner was one of the high prole guest speakers invited to the governing board meeting of the Suwannee River Water Management District to update SRWMD on progress being made on moving the Valdosta sewage treatment plant from the banks of the Withlacoochee River. Hershel Vinyard, secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, spoke briey about the good cooperation Florida is receiving from Georgia and the City of Valdosta. SRWMD Governing Board Chairman Don Quincey, a Chieand rancher, said the North Florida economy is being aected by the sewage spills because tourists stay away from the rivers when they hear about Valdosta sewage spills. e public is notied of the spills and county health departments frequently urge people to avoid areas where contamination has been veried by testing, or has been seen or smelled by residents. When we have these episodes, no one comes that weekend, Quincey said. Quincey requested quarterly updates from Turners agency on the progress being made to relocate the Valdosta sewage treatment plant and connected facilities. Turner said that wouldnt be a problem. He said communications between the two states have substantially improved in the past few years. e Valdosta Wastewater Treatment Plant is located along the Withlacoochee River and ows into North Florida, connecting with the Suwannee River. e contamination originates in Georgia and has been a source of frustration for people in both states living along the river. Turner said Valdosta is moving the plant far enough away from the ood plain to prevent future spills. Lewis and Turner said Valdosta has already begun relocation of a force main and manhole covers that are frequently the source of the sewage spills. e city wanted to relocate the main as the rst phase of the project. Both men said the timetable calls for the plant itself to be moved by the end of next year. Lewis said the state would like to get the project nished as soon as possible, but the logistics of moving a plant of that size and connected facilities requires time. Its unfortunate were having to say we need this much time to get it done, He said. Quincey said SRWMD is more interested in preventing future sewage spills than ling lawsuits against the parties involved. He said the district is quite interested in the progress being made. Turner agreed that the two parties suing each other served no useful purpose. He said he personally sees no point in levying heavy nes against a city that is working hard to comply with a consent order. Valdosta isnt alone in the project. Lowndes County, which passed a sales tax to pay for a portion of the project, is also making a major contribution to the funding. But Turner said Valdosta has taken the most aggressive approach to resolving the problem of sewage spills. Turner said the $70 million project is fully funded. Lewis said multiple companies have contracted with the city to do the work. A representative of the Audubon Society asked Turner if there were any plans to operate a water reuse facility in connection with the plant. Turn said he would have to look more closely at the contracts and get back with her, but he believes a water reuse facility is part of the project. Medical Training Requirements and Costs Lead Discussion at Commission ALS Meeting continued from page 1AHospital. Jones works for the county commission. e county commission would have to license Chieand to operate an ALS non-transport truck. Attending the meeting for Chieand were City Commissioner Teresa Barron, City Attorney Norm Fugate, City Manager Mary Ellzey and Fire Chief James Harris. County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell led the county delegation that included County Coordinator Freddie Moody, County Attorney Anne Bast Brown and Public Safety Director David Knowles. ere were moments of friction. When Fugate made it clear that the city considered the meeting to be a public meeting open to the public, county ocials red back that they considered the meeting a sta level discussion and was not open to the general public. Bell allowed the news media to attend but refused to let a reporter record the discussion. One sticking point was the countys demand that the city pay at least half the cost of the countys Tallahassee attorneys reviewing the county special assessment ordinance that funds emergency medical services. Bell said there are county commissioners who believe the city should pay the full $11,000. He said hes not among them, but he does believe the city should bear some of the cost. e citys position is that EMS is a county function and the county should pay for its own legal services. e county says that it wouldnt review the special assessment ordinance if not for the citys request to be licensed for an ALS truck. Chieand Fire Rescue has experienced many incidents where reghters say they could have saved lives in Chieand and surrounding area if city paramedics were given the equipment and the legal authority to use the same advanced life support equipment and drugs that the countys paramedics use on ambulances. An ALS non-transport truck would carry much of the same equipment as an ambulance but could not transport patients to a hospital. e county has evaluated sheris oce dispatch records and found that city re trucks reach car wrecks and medical emergencies well ahead of the ambulances most of the time. Six hours a month were waiting for ambulances, Barron said. She was referring to the total elapsed time in a month that Chieand reghters wait at the scene of medical emergencies for county ambulances to arrive. Chieand has pressed the county commission to give the city the license to operate an ALS truck, but the county commission hasnt been in a rush to comply with the citys request thus far, saying the issues are far too complex, both legally and medically to grant the city a license in a hurry. ere have been suggestions that the county is stalling until the Aug. 26 election to make a decision on Chieand ALS, but the county has denied the allegation. Jones and his two colleagues at the meeting, Dr. Christine Van Dillen and Dr. Amit Rawal, all of Shands Hospital, along with Knowles said they would require Chieand to employ three full-time paramedics to operate the ALS non-transport truck in Chieand and all three paramedics would have to ride on a county ambulance for six months to receive the additional training necessary to qualify them to be the lead medic on the ALS truck. Jones is a medical doctor and assistant professor at UF. Rawal specializes in emergency medicine. e city came to the meeting hoping to negotiate a dierent arrangement by using the one full-time paramedic it already employs and inserting the citys six part-time paramedics to man other shifts, but Jones, Van Dillen and Rawal said using part-time paramedics would decrease the quality of care on ambulances. ey said they have set very high standards for Levy County EMS and part-time paramedics would lower the bar for Chieand. Unless they have the exact same training, you have a dierent level of care, Jones said. e county and city discussed the possibility of Chieand complying with the training requirement for paramedics by allowing an exchange of paramedics. One of Chieands paramedics would ride the ambulance for six months while a county paramedic would drive the Chieand ALS truck. e same exchange would take place until all of the citys paramedics were trained to county standards. Both sides generally agreed to consider the proposal. Knowles said the countys two ALS non-transport trucks are not state certied. e countys trucks are used to carry spare parts. e trucks are driven by seasoned paramedic supervisors who can do everything an ambulance paramedic can do, according to Knowles. But with no state certication, the trucks are not subject to random state inspections and do not have to be in service 24 hours a day, according to Harris. Knowles said the two trucks were purchased with a combination of county re and EMS funding. Rawal said he agrees that he and his colleagues want to get patients out as quickly as possible. But he added, With good reason we are going to want the standard of care across the county to be the same. Knowles said the county ambulance crews have had incidents where inexperienced paramedics placed a breathing tube down the wrong opening in the throat. He said its a liability issue and a patient care issue, and for that reason the county wants all paramedics trained to the same high standards. He said a paramedic coming straight out of school doesnt have the same skill set as someone who has ridden an ambulance for six months. Rawal said a paramedic thats half-trained wont be as skilled as one that is fully trained. ats why we spend an inordinate amount of time on training and equipment, he said. Its a very complicated, very complex issue. e city is waiting for Knowles to provide a copy of the countys training and medical procedures so the city can assess the full cost of an ALS truck. Knowles promised to provide the materials to Ellzey by Monday, but failed to make good on his commitment. e county has shown little interest in using some of the $2.5 million in 1 cent sales tax revenue it collects annually to help Chieand fund ALS non-transport. e sales tax is collected countywide by the state. e state sends all the money to Levy County. e 1 cent sales tax revenue is not designated for a particular purpose. e county commission deposits the money in its general fund and uses it to pay bills. e Journal has raised the question as an election campaign issue. County ocials have also said that they dont believe Chieand should be the only city with ALS non-transport truck. ey say if Chieand gets the service, it should be made available to any city that requests an ALS truck and has the funds available to pay for it. e county has indicated it doesnt have an obligation to fund an ALS truck for Chieand or other cities. e county allocates EMS funds to the operation of its ambulances. ey say thats also the reason the county needs to look at its special assessment ordinance. ey believe the ordinance may have to be tweaked to add a Chieand ALS non-transport truck to the EMS system. e county and city have made no denite plans for a second meeting.Application Process for Service Academy Nominations Now OpenApplications for Nominations to Service Academies Due September 3Yoho Votes to Ensure Veterans Care
6A Wesley, John, Mike and Debbie School is Starting Focus on Child Safety AwarenessSchool is starting up again and the Florida Highway Patrol is helping out with a refresher on staying vehicle safe with children out and about getting ready to go back to school. eir minds are on their own agendas and we have to be careful with our vehicles while they are distracted with seeing friends and starting school. Below are some helpful reminders of safety with vehicles while children are in the area at home, in the school parking lot or at the pickup spot.Blind Zones All vehicles have blind zones/blind spots. Get to know your vehicles blind spots. Typically, the larger the vehicle, the larger the blind zone. Blind zones can be aected by the size and shape of vehicle mirrors and windows, elevation of drivers seat, and slope of driveway. Blind zones may even be larger for shorter drivers. Keep your windows and mirrors clean. Never back a vehicle when the rear windows or any mirrors are covered with dirt or any other substances.Backing Out When backing in and out of a driveway, make sure all children are safe and accounted for. Walk around and check behind your vehicle before you get in. Whenever possible use a person outside the vehicle to help you back up. Check your rearview and side mirrors. Roll down your windows to listen for children/ pedestrians. Place your right arm on the back of the seat and turn around so that you can look directly through the rear window. Back slowly and check the path repeatedly. Discontinue the use of electronic devices and radios to better hear your surroundings. Children on bicycles can be unpredictable and can make sudden changes in direction. Be especially careful when children are present (school zones and residential areas). Florida Law states (F.S. 316.1985): e driver of a vehicle shall not back the same unless such movement can be made with safety and without interfering with other trac.Driveway Safety Discourage children from playing in driveways and designate safe play areas away from vehicles. If children play in the driveway, have an adult supervise at all times. Teach children to never play inside, on, around, or under vehicles. Keep vehicles in driveways/garages locked and store keys out of childs reach. Keep toys, bicycles, etc. o the driveway. e FHP reminds us that prevention of backing crashes is what its about, so TAKE A SECOND LOOK, if you have any doubt!Florida Motor Vehicles Laws require that motorists stop upon approaching any school bus which displays its ashing red lights and has its stop signs extended. Section 316.172, Florida Statutes Motor Vehicle Laws Trac to stop for school bus. --(1) (a) Any person using, operating, or driving a vehicle on or over the roads or highways of this state shall, upon approaching any school bus which displays a stop signal, bring such vehicle to a full stop while the bus is stopped, and the vehicle shall not pass the school bus until the signal has been withdrawn. A person who violates this section commits a moving violation, punishable as provided in chapter 318. (b) Any person using, operating, or driving a vehicle that passes a school bus on the side that children enter and exit when the school bus displays a stop signal commits a moving violation, punishable as provided in chapter 318, and is subject to a mandatory hearing under the provisions of s. 318.19. (2) e driver of a vehicle upon a divided highway with an unpaved space of at least 5 feet, a raised median, or a physical barrier is not required to stop when traveling in the opposite direction of a school bus which is stopped in accordance with the provisions of this section. (3) Every school bus shall stop as far to the right of the street as possible and shall display warning lights and stop signals as required by rules of the State Board of Education before discharging or loading passengers. When possible, a school bus shall not stop where the visibility is obscured for a distance of 200 feet either way from the bus. Amount of penalties (Section 318.18, FS): Left hand pass: 1st oense: $165 2nd or subsequent oense (within 5 years): $165 plus license suspension for 90 days to 6 months Right hand pass: 1st oense: $265 2nd or subsequent oense (within 5 years): $265, license suspension for 180 days to one year, plus a mandatory hearing Driver improvement course (Section 322.0261, FS): e oender must, in addition to other applicable penalties, attend a DHSMV-approved driver improvement course. If the operator fails to complete the course within 90 days after receiving notice, his or her driver license will be canceled until the course is successfully completed. For any violation of Section 316.72, FS, 4 points assessed against driver license (Section 322.27, FS): Points: Within: License Suspension, up to: 12 1 year 30 days 18 18 months 90 days 24 3 years 1 yearFloridas School Bus Stop Law Chieand Refuses to Give Up on ALS continued from page 1Ae gure was oated at a joint city/county sta meeting on Aug. 6 with the countys medical director, Dr. Jason Jones, and two of his colleagues. Fire Chief James Harris told commissioners he has enough funding in his budget to employ two full-time reghter/ paramedics, but would need an additional $29,000 to hire a third. e city has discussed applying for a grant or asking community groups to pay for all or part of the advanced life support equipment. City Projects Coordinator and Financial Director Laurie Copeland said the total cost of employing three full-time paramedics would be $116,685. Pomeroy asked if numbers included overtime. Harris said he didnt gure in overtime. Pomeroy said he continues to believe ALS is a good thing if there are no additional costs to the city. But the countys requirement for three full-time paramedics may hamper the citys eorts to add an ALS truck to Chieand Fire Rescue. Harris had hoped he could use his full-time reghter/ paramedic and six part-time paramedics to ll out the roster. Using his system, he said the ALS truck wouldnt increase the Chieand Fire Rescue budget. Discussions concerning a Chieand ALS non-transport unit began in September of 2013 when Chieand made a formal request of the county commission to operate such a unit. It was part of the citys overall budget request for Chieand Fire Rescue. Commissioners turned down the request and asked the city to come back the following year with more information. Discussions began in early June this summer when the city and county met for a joint workshop, but the county commission said it would be unable to arrange the next meeting between county and city sta until Aug. 6 when the countys medical directors would be available. Commissioner Teresa Barron reminded commissioners that a couple of years back the county commission removed one of Chieands ambulances and re-stationed it in Bronson. Commissioners also re-stationed one of Willistons ambulances to Bronson. Our service was reduced by 50 percent, but the EMS assessment went up, Barron said. ere appears to be community support for an ALS nontransport unit. Resident Dane Wilson recently submitted petitions bearing the signatures of 528 Chieand residents who want ALS service. Wilson said he is a living example of why ALS is needed in Chieand. He said one day his heart was racing at a rate of more than 250 beats per minute when the ambulance was summoned. He said Chieand reghters arrived before the ambulance but could do nothing for him because they werent certied to use ALS equipment or drugs. ey were forced to wait in his home until the ambulance arrived 22 minutes later. Chieands argues that an ALS non-transport unit would carry the same equipment and medicine as an ambulance and would give paramedics a chance to save more lives while waiting for the ambulance. ey also argue that Chieand reghters nearly always arrive at the scene of medical emergencies before county ambulances. Chieand Fire Rescue currently serves as a rst response service with Basic Life Support equipment. e countys medical director, Dr. Jason Jones, said he will insist on Chieand hiring three full-time paramedics to operate the ALS truck 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. He said the countys training requirements will mean Chieand paramedics must ride a county ambulance for six months before they can be turned loose to serve as the lead medic on an ALS truck. Jones said the level of care would diminish if the Chieand paramedics were not trained to the same level of care as the county ambulance crews. As the countys medical director, the Levy County Emergency Medical Service operates under Jones medical license. Many in the audience were of the opinion that county is throwing roadblocks in front of Chieand to prevent the city from ever having ALS. But Fugate said he sees no legal roadblocks to getting an ALS unit. Commissioner Betty Walker said she believes the city has made progress in its negotiations with the county and thinks the city should continue to work with county ocials. But she said before the city moves forward, she believes city sta needs to take a look at the paperwork Knowles is planning to deliver.

8A e Log Cabin Quilters met ursday, Aug. 7th at the Levy County Quilt Museum at 11050 NW 10th Ave. Alice Mae and Janie each brought in items for us to see. Janie brought in the Drunkards Path that she had been working on for some time. Alice Mae brought in the square dance dress that she made in the 1970s. We were all in agreement that it was the dress that had shrunk over the years making it too small for her to wear now. Ann and Alice Mae put the small quilt top that Ailien had made in the frame that is in the front room. Ann usually quilts when she is out on Wednesday. Everyone is invited out to quilt when youre in the area. Greg and the boys were out during the week. Well give them a list each week of extras that need to be done. anks Lancaster. As we now have a square dance dress, we are in need of a dress form (dummy) so we can display the dress. If any of you have one, please consider donating it to us. We are fortunate that we get to meet so many interesting people to visit us. is week we met a lady who spent over 20 years living on a sailboat with her husband. Hopefully shell write a book for us to learn about her adventures. I dont think weve ever had a boring person to visit us. Come out for a visit, youll never know who just might meet. Janie has nished hand quilting this Drunkards Path quilt. The colors are beautiful. Alice Mae won a ribbon on this square dance dress in 1977. Its made with counted cross stitch and applique.Log Cabin Quilters GAINESVILLE, Fla. (August 1, 2014) -Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) kicked o its seventh annual Tour de Turtles (TdT) with a live sea turtle release on July 27 at the Barrier Island Center, located in the heart of the Archie Carr National Wildlife Refuge in Melbourne Beach, Florida. A crowd of more than 1,000 people gathered to watch as STC researchers released two adult female loggerhead sea turtles, named Shelley and Melba, into the ocean to begin their migrations. Shelley was named by her sponsors at Ripleys Aquariums while Melba was named via STCs Facebook contest. Shelley and Melba are just two of 12 sea turtles representing four dierent species swimming in the TdT migration marathon, an annual program that conducts valuable research and raises public awareness about sea turtles. e 2014 TdT included live turtle releases in Panama, Costa Rica, Nevis and Florida. e nal release is on August 15 at Sombrero Beach, Fla. is year is the rst time that a rehabilitated loggerhead turtle is competing in the TdT. Pine Tyme, an 80 pound sub-adult loggerhead, was spotted struggling on the surface unable to dive and is now being treated at e Turtle Hospital in Marathon, Florida. Upon recovery, Pine Tyme will be equipped with a satellite transmitter and released from Sombrero Beach, Fla. on August 15 at 1:00 p.m. is is also STCs rst ever release in the Keys. is is the seventh year of the Tour de Turtles and we are thrilled with how the program has grown and gained popularity over the years, said David Godfrey, executive director of STC. More people are turning out for the live release events and logging onto the website to learn about these turtles than ever before. Before releasing each turtle, STC scientists attach a satellite transmitter to its shell using turtle-safe epoxy or berglass resin. e transmitters allow STC and the public to track the turtles as they migrate from their nesting beaches to their foraging grounds. Turtle fans can follow the turtles migrations online at www.tourdeturtles.org and cheer on on their favorite competitor while learning about some of the threats sea turtles face. Fans can support their favorite turtle through a virtual adoption or by making a pledge for each mile the turtle swims. e turtle who swims the farthest by October 31 will be crowned the winner of the race while the turtle who raises the most money will be crowned the Peoples Choice Winner. Some interesting facts about the 2014 Tour de Turtles: Esperanza, a green sea turtle, is swimming to raise awareness about the threat of egg harvesting for consumption. After she laid her eggs on July 3, 2014, it was discovered that her nest had been poached and her eggs stolen! Luckily, the local police were able to catch the poacher and return the eggs to STCs team, who quickly and carefully reburied them in a new location. Hopefully well see some green hatchlings erupting from Esperanzas nest in September! Sugar, a hawksbill, already had ipper tags when STC found her nesting on Lovers Beach, Nevis. After looking up her tag number, STC was able to determine that she was rst tagged by the Nevis Turtle Group in 2007. is was great news because it provided further evidence that sea turtles return to the same beach to nest. Melba, a loggerhead, ranks in the top ve largest loggerheads STC has ever released! She also has one of the biggest heads, which is tting as loggerheads get their name from their exceptionally large heads. For a full list of turtle competitors and sponsors, visit the ocial website at www.tourdeturtles.org Twelve Sea Turtles Set O on Migratory Journey as Part of Annual Tour de Turtles Loggerhead Melba was released in Florida on July 27, 2014.Its a risk you have to take. You have to stay here to maintain coverage, Murphy said. ats what were here for. Its no dierent than walking into a re. Were here for the citizens. e city can move reghters to temporary space at the vacant TRW building at the Williston Airport if there appeared to immediate danger to the reghters. e city, however, would keep some of its primary reghting equipment at the center of the city to maintain better response times. MCD Geosciences & Engineering was hired by Synergy Recovery of Florida on behalf of the citys insurer, Florida League of Cities, to study the sinkhole damage. A 65-page report indicated that a portion of the damage to the Police and Fire Department Building is due to sinkhole activity. Based on the results of our investigations and in our professional opinion, sinkhole activity is partially responsible for the concerns at a portion of the City of Williston Police and Fire Building, the MCD report said. e report added that soils are loose or not as dense as necessary in the rst 10-feet of soil beneath the building, and that fact along with inadequate jointing of the concrete slab is probably responsible for some of the less severe settling of the building. But the report left no doubt the most severe damage to the building was due to sinkhole damage. e company recommended pumping in grouting under the exterior edges of the foundation and inserting support pilings to shore up the foundation. Among the ndings contained in the report: e concrete slab at the re department has shifted. Siding on the building is buckling and loose at various locations on the exterior. e walkways on the north and south sides of the building are settling. ere are cracks in the re bay slab. Water pools at the center of the re bay slab. e re bay utility room door doesnt shut properly due to shifting. ere is severe separation of the south side sidewalk from the building slab. Several exterior window panes have separated from the window frames. In the interior of the building, multiple cracks or separation of the ceiling tile can be seen. Ground penetrating radar and soil testing showed a large depression in the soil on the south side of the building. e report makes no mention of one door near the police chiefs oce that no longer stays closed unless the deadbolt lock is used. e frame of the door has shifted. Police Chief Dennis Strow said his barometer of how much the building is shifting is a corner ceiling tile directly in front of his oce desk. Spaces have formed around the tile and it appears ready to fall. City Manager Scott Lippmann said negotiations with the citys property insurance company, the Florida League of Cities has led to the conclusion that Ram Jack Corporation is best positioned to save the building. e company will insert support pilings and pump some grout to stabilize the building. Lippmann said Ram Jack is prepared to send all three of its crews in Florida to begin work on the Police and Fire Building in 30-45 days. e city rejected the original plan to use mostly grout to pump under the building because it posed a risk to the neighboring city water well, located within 100 feet of the southwest corner of the building. e city didnt want the grout to migrate through underground limestone voids into the city water well. Its dicult to tell where the grout is going, Lippman said. e geo-technical report doesnt say whether there is a void beneath the building nor does it rule it out, saying only that there is sinkhole activity. MCD didnt drill beneath the slab to determine if a sinkhole cavity has formed under the building. Lippmann said Ram Jack is talking about cutting out sections of the re bay concrete oor and installing two reinforced strips of metal to strengthen the oor. e company would not cut all the way through the concrete. e plan for the additional loadbearing strips would allow the concrete oor in the re bay to carry more weight. Fire trucks fully loaded with water are extremely heavy. ey feel its a good solution and will help with additional layers of loadbearing, Lippmann said. e city manager said Ram Jack has made the Williston project such a high priority that all inquiries are being handled only by the company president. I think this is a little innovative to them and they want to make sure its done right, Lippmann said. He added that all engineering calculations performed at the High Springs oce will be sent to the corporate oce to be reviewed a second time by corporate engineers. e nal price tag hasnt been established, but Lippmann said the fee for Ram Jack alone is $295,000, not including the grouting. Ram Jacks website says it also does grouting, but its not clear whether Ram Jack will handle the grouting or if another company will do the work. Lippmann said the city is concerned about the sinkhole activity beneath the building and is monitoring the situation closely. He said the big shift in the building was when most of the damage occurred. He said the settling since that time has diminished. He said the city will keep close watch on the building and is prepared to evacuate re and police personnel should the building begin a make a major shift again. We had the big move where things started to shift in a big way, Lippmann said. Its still shifting, but at a much slower rate. Were still watching it very closely.Solution Found for Sinking Williston Public Safety Building continued from page 1AWilliston Lends a Hand with Bronsons Gushing Water Pipe continued from page 1A His counterpart, Bronson Town Clerk Kelli Brettel decided to call Sunshine Meters to see if they had the correct piece of repair equipment. e company opened their warehouse for the town and provided the correct sleeve that could interlock with the pipe and seal it. Jonathan Bishop and Franklin Jackson from Williston arrived to provide backup if Zimoski and Dunford needed it. One of the big problems was that the gushing water pipe was relling the hole with sand and making it dicult to seal the sleeve over the pipe. e area that was dug around the pipe was expanded to the other side. By that time, night had fallen and the crew was working with headlights. Lippmann said the experience made him realize that Williston needs a smaller set of portable lights powered by a small generator that can be hauled in a pickup truck to the site of a problem. e city has a larger set of light towers that must to be loaded on a trailer and hauled to the site with a large generator. But a smaller and more portable set of lights would have come in handy in this situation. Lippmann left the scene about 10 p.m. and he said Zimoski left at about midnight. Dunford said the pipe still has a small leak but he wont attempt to repair it until the rain stops. He said it would only make a bigger mess attempting to repair the small leak in soggy soil.

For more information call 352/221-2003, or 352/493-1175 or visit www.oldtimechurch.com We rolled up to the little towns summer festival only to nd our band was not scheduled on the main stage. Not surprising, given Christian groups arent generally held in high regard these days. e event organizer took us o the beaten path a ways to show us the little section of black-top road hed picked out for us. It was out back of an abandoned service station. Across the way I noticed two lonely souls fanning themselves in a rusty concession trailer. ey gave us a friendly wave, obviously glad for the company. Wed be the only band in this line-up, coming on right after a young girl singing karaoke. Shed kick o right after a troop of tap dancing grandmas wearing high heels and sparkly red, white, and blue leotards. Despite this top billing, we found a few details had been neglected; like a P.A. system, or a scheduled time to set up one! ankfully this wasnt our rst rodeo, and our gear was in the trailer. After a group prayer for more humility, we immediately set about to salvage what we could out of the day. Unfortunately, in the process, I got totally lambasted by one of the eighty-year-old dancing grandmas for discreetly attempting to set up our equipment in the background while they aerated the sticky pavement with their high heeled stomp routine. I wanted to say, You realize theres nobody watching except those two in the concession trailer, right? However, since she could probably point that same thing out to me, and since she was now brandishing one of those high heels, I wisely replied, Yes mam. I even oered to run her antique reel-to-reel tape machine while she sang Judy Garlands Somewhere over the Rainbow two octaves higher than a pining purple porpoise in puberty. Not long after, I also got lambasted by the dad of that precious little singing girl for the same thing. Now understandably, he was just nervous and wanting things to go perfect. As far as he was concerned, this might as well have been the Grand Ole Opry. (I could tell how keyed up he was by the way he kept mouthing cuss words at me when I would move around back stage.) So to avoid a ruckus, I nally sat down and let him savor it all. It all gave me time to question why in the world had I ever let MTV mesmerize me as a kid. Huh huh huh. thats cool, Id said, Ill start a band and be rich and famous. Yeah yeah yeah..., Beavis agreed, And well get some of those girly models to wax the hood of our sports cars in a video. Well, I never did see those riches. In fact, I barely recovered from spending my last dime converting a Formica counter top into my rst electric guitar in seventh grade shop class. Accounting for practice and equipment-toting time, my average salary as a musician would total up to about 14 cents a month. ank goodness for day jobs. Oh, and the whole famous thing never really panned out either. e only people who might possibly ask of me, Where are they now? are some overzealous IRS agents wanting their cut on that 14 cents. Lastly, let me just state, ere is no such thing as a groupie with a full set of teeth! Enough said. ankfully, Im okay with all that now. e Lord Jesus has come into my heart and freed me from all the bitterness Id harbored over the years. So next time you walk past our bands little lawnmower trailer stage at the car show, dont waste your time trying to make me mad by sticking your ngers in your ears and griping, You mind cutting that down Buster, Im on my way over to the cake walk here? And dont hit me with that look that says, Youll never make it as a Rock Star I already know. What? Im not bitter. Do you think Im bitter? But anyway Nowadays, whether Im up there crooning to upwards of 17 people, or just the cleanup crew, I want you to know Im doing it because Jesus loves you ats right; YOU Its your fault. If God says He wants me up there sweating all day just on the o chance youll hear me sing something to cause you to consider Jesus as you stomp o, then thats what Ill do. You see the Lord has given me a love for you, and I know He appreciates me trying to show it. Besides, Ive learned Gods approval is much more fullling than any of the ckle accolades of that MTV crowd. In the grand scheme of things, its what matter most. I hope youve thought about that.Maybe all my foolishness is part of Gods master plan, right along with Beavis and the tap dancing Grannies. ( But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise ; 1 Corinthians 1:27 KVJ) Im okay with it, really...
