By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA major water line break in Bronson last week led town council members Monday to discuss installation of shuto water valves in key locations around town that would allow public works crews to seal o sections of the city for repair of broken pipes. No action was taken on developing a plan for installing water valves, but the council agreed a good starting point would be purchasing a couple of valves every year and installing them at strategic locations. Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford said the town is purchasing a $4,300 valve that will permit him to shut o water to the area of the broken pipe along State Road 24 and give workers a dry area to seal the leaking pipe. e broken pipe began spewing water when a construction crew hit an unseen valve beneath the soil and damaged the water pipe in the vicinity of e Childrens Table. Dunford called county government and the City of Williston to nd out if either had a sleeve that would t over the aging pipe to seal it. He nally contacted a private rm that opened its warehouse and found the right size sleeve. But the pipe continues to leak, though not nearly as bad as last week. Councilman Berlon Weeks said the town needs to map out its water pipeline system. Councilman Bruce Greenlee suggested dividing the town into quadrants to create a more strategic way of installing shut o valves.Dunford said the city should be able to locate a lot more stu in the water system when the sewer project starts and trenches are dug for new sewer lines. One of the contractors involved in the project will begin digging sewer lines next week.

Traditional voters who prefer casting a ballot at the precinct will get their chance next Tuesday on Election Day when the polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. For those who like to vote early, Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones is allowing early voters to cast ballots in the elections oce lobby at 421 Court Street, Bronson, from 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. through Saturday. Early voters began casting ballots on Aug. 11 during the same hours. e total number of early voters to cast a ballot was 320 as of Sunday. e elections oce mailed 4,700 absentee ballots to voters. As of Sunday 1,510 had been returned. Voters can return absentees by mailing the ballot to the elections oce. e ballot must be in the elections oce by 7 p.m. Aug. 26, the close of polls on Election Day. Absentee ballots can be placed in the drop-o slot next to the front door of the elections oce by 7 p.m. on Election Day. e elections oce is the building with an orange roof on the east end of the Levy County Courthouse. Republican voters will have the greatest selection of candidates on the ballot. Republicans will decide whether District 2 Republican County Commissioner Chad Johnson or his opponent Rock Meeks advance to face non-party candidate Robert Studstill on Nov. 4. Republicans will also decide whether District 4 Republican County Commissioner Ryan Bell or his opponent Lilly Rooks will advance to the Nov. 4 general election to face Democrat Jamie Grin. GOP voters will choose their candidates for governor, attorney general and circuit judge. e pickings are slimmer for Democrats. ey will vote for governor, attorney general and circuit judge, but not county commission. ose of you who are neither Democrat nor Republican will vote only for the circuit judgeship. Floridas election primaries are open to voters from the same party. e Florida Legislature has shown no By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterWilliston City Council members are grappling with the question of how much of a pay raise employees should receive and whether they can aord a large increase in the citys health and life insurance. e city originally thought it would get hit with about a $100,000 increase in health and life insurance, but the citys insurer, Nature Coast Insurance, gave the city a quote on Friday of a $43,000 increase. Health insurance premiums for employees would rise from $557.80 to $600.50 if council members approve the plan. e city pays the premium for employee health insurance but employees pay for family coverage. e city council is divided on whether to give employees a 2 percent raise or a 5 percent raise or something in between. Councilman Cal Byrd and Mayor Gerald Hethcoat favor 5 percent, but Council President Jason Cason is leaning toward 2 percent. Byrd said it rubbed him the wrong way to see bigger adjustments in pay for the city clerk and the new airport facilities manager than for the remaining city employees who would receive 2 percent. e council has proposed raising City Clerk Fran Taylors pay from $41,790 to $46,649. e new airport facilities manager, Wayne Middleton, will receive a salary of $51,500, the same as he makes as the assistant airport director at Ocala International Airport. He hasnt started work yet at the Williston Airport. Middletons predecessor earned $39,203. City Manager Scott Lippman said the city budgeted a 20 percent increase in health and life Mindy Shouse, outreach coordinator for the Levy County elections oce, waits outside the lobby door Saturday for early voters to arrive. Early voters didnt have to stand in line over the weekend. Photo by Terry Witt.e Aug. 26 election is just days away, and that fact was painfully obvious at the Levy County Commission meeting Tuesday. County Commissioners attempted to cower the Levy County Journal and its reporter Terry Witt with misstatements and innuendo intended to knock the Journal o course and force it into a kinder and gentler form of reporting that commissioners can tolerate as the primary approaches next Tuesday. e Journal is a small weekly newspaper and doesnt take kindly to intimidation eorts regardless of how the allegations are couched by these powerful county commissioners. e Journal will not back down to the county commission despite the obviously awkward situation created by commissioners trying to turn the tables on Witt and the Journal. We wont change our reporting to make a few commissioners happy. e comments by Commissioner John Meeks and Commission Chairman Ryan Bell reminded us of the proverbial three ring circus. ere are three circles of entertainment Pre-Election Circus Breaks Out at Commission MeetingCommentary e Journals OpinionGet Ready to Cast Your Ballot Next Tuesday or SoonerWilliston Council Wrestles with Health Insurance Increase, Pay Raisecontinued to page 3A continued to page 3ABronsons Broken Water Pipe May Lead to More Shuto Valves Williston Moves to Prohibit Illegal Synthetic DrugsBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterWilliston City Council members voted unanimously Tuesday to approve the rst reading of an ordinance that prohibits the possession, sale and distribution of illicit synthetic drugs and misbranded drugs that pose a threat to the public. Police Chief Dennis Strow said the ordinance allows his ocers to identify prohibited products through the examination of the packaging or by statements made in stores. He said convenience stores carry these illegal synthetic drugs and the ordinance will send a message to drug dealers that their products are not welcome in Williston. e young man that raced through the city the other day had been high on synthetic drugs for four days, Strow said. He was referring to the man who led police on a high speed chase from Ocala to Dixie County before the sheri there used a special technique to send the suspects truck into a spin. e truck rolled over and the young man Williston Attempting to Strengthen City Noise OrdinanceBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterIn an eort to reduce bothersome noise in Williston, the city council Monday approved the rst reading of an amended noise ordinance that Police Chief Dennis Strow believes is more enforceable. One of the big changes is that police must no longer depend exclusively on noise meters to determine whether there is a violation. Police can make a case if the complaining party can hear the disturbing noise. Strow said one neighboring community was able to shut down loud car speakers with a similar ordinance. Strow consulted the State Attorney before amending the ordinance. e intent of the new law is to prohibit the use or operation of any device used for the production or reproduction of sound that is causing a disturbance. e ordinance says a noise disturbance is any sound that disturbs continued to page 8A continued to page 8A a reasonable person of normal sensibilities; exceeds the sound level limits set for by the ordinance, or is plainly audible. Noise meters do factor into the ordinance. e new law sets maximum sound levels during the day and night and the maximum amount of time a disturbing noise can be made. ere are exemptions from the ordinance such a non-amplied human voice. However, yelling, shouting, whistling, hooting or generally creating a noise disturbance during the nighttime hours in a residential area in other than a time of emergency is prohibited. e sounds of emergency vehicles like police cars and re engines are exempted from the ordinance. Sounds made by non-amplied public speaking activities on public property or public right-of-ways are allowed if the events are legally authorized. Sounds produced by organized sports events, reworks or by permitted parades on a public right-of-way or public property are exempt. e ordinance doesnt cover every conceivable noise issue. Council President Jason Cason said he can hear Crab Fest clearly if the wind is blowing from the right direction. e sound of trains coming through town is allowed. Strow says the sound of a Jake Brake on big trucks could result in a ticket under the new ordinance. City Attorney Fred Koberlein said rst time violators will be given a warning.

He was sentenced to 180 days in jail on a charge of aggravated battery on a pregnant victim. Alexander violated his probation on Nov. 18, 2013 when he was observed in Alachua County driving a blue minivan owned by his mother. He was wanted at the time on an Alachua County Sheris Oce warrant for driving with a suspended or revoked license. When stopped by the sheris oce, he gave a false name. He also violated his probation by not being present at his approved residence when a probation ocer came by to visit him at a scheduled time on March 19. e same thing happened on March 23 when a probation ocer came by for a scheduled visit and Alexander was not home. Kadeem Kent Patterson 21, Gainesville, was sentenced to 270 days in state prison after pleading no contest to giving a false identication to a law enforcement ocer, possession marijuana with intent to sell or deliver and possession of more than 20 grams of marijuana. He was credited with 110 days served in the Levy County Detention Center.

He gave the ocer a false name. e trooper used Rapid Identication to uncover his real name. Patterson was wanted in Alachua County on two arrest warrants. e trooper also found a plastic baggie containing marijuana that fell out of his pants. Inside the baggie were smaller bags of pot. A second bag of pot fell out of his shorts when he stepped out of the car. e total amount of marijuana found on Patterson was a felony. e fact that he was carrying multiple small bags for sale also worked against him. Jerey Wayne Stoner 39, Pinellas Park, was sentenced to 180 days in the Levy County Detention Center and given credit for 53 days served after pleading no contest to felony driving with a suspended or revoked drivers license. e Florida Highway Patrol stopped Stoner in Otter Creek for driving 80 miles per hour in a 65 zone. e trooper discovered Stoners drivers license had been revoked on Oct. 29, 1997 as a habitual trac oender.

3A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA 36-year-old Chieand man was critically injured early Saturday morning when his truck was struck by another vehicle that ed the scene of the crash. e Florida Highway Patrol identied the victim as Joseph Strong. He was taken to University of Florida Health at Shands Hospital. A witness said Strongs Silverado truck was struck by a white vehicle. e vehicle failed to stop at the scene and has not been located. e vehicle may be a Ford Taurus car. FHP said Strong was southbound on U.S. 19 at 2:50 a.m. in the outside southbound lane when he drifted o the west side of the highway and onto the grass shoulder. He lost control of the vehicle. His truck began to rotate across both lanes of trac. e truck entered the grass median and overturned onto its right side. Strong was ejected and came to nal rest in the center of the northbound lanes of U.S. 19. Anyone with information pertaining to the crash is asked to contact Cpl. Daphne Yuncker at 352/732-1260 Ext. 235 or 1-800395-8241 and ask for the Troop Watch Supervisor. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLaw enforcement ocers in Georgia and Florida chased down a murder suspect in a carjacked vehicle and arrested him on Friday in North Florida. Daniel Nelson Robinson, no age or address listed, came to the attention of the Florida Highway Patrol when the Columbia County Sheris Oce in Georgia asked for help in catching a man who shot and killed a man and assaulted a woman and carjacked the vehicle in a church parking lot, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Florida troopers in the Criminal Interdiction Unit located the suspect and the stolen vehicle on Interstate 95 at Pecan Park Road. e suspect vehicle exited the Interstate with troopers in pursuit. e suspect eventually re-entered the Interstate at a high rate of speed. Troopers pursued the vehicle for approximately three miles before the suspect managed to elude troopers by leaving the Interstate on a side road. Several Jacksonville sheris deputies in the area found the suspects vehicle which had been abandoned at Lake Forest Boulevard and Wayne Street. ere were signs of blood in the vehicle. e Jacksonville Sheris Oce located a man matching a description of the suspect and detained him. He had blood on his clothing. Video surveillance by the Columbia County Sheris Oce in Georgia conrmed the identity of the suspect. Robinson was arrested for aggravated eeing and eluding, stealing a vehicle and other charges.

Get Ready to Cast Your Ballot Next Tuesday or Sooner continued from page 1A interest in creating open primaries where voters can cross party lines to vote for the candidate of their choice. Universal elections in primaries occur when only candidates of the same party are on the ballot. Any registered voter can cast a ballot. But this year in the county commission races, a Democrat is running for District 4 and a non-party candidate is running for District 2, which means the county commission races on Aug. 26 will be decided by Republicans. ere are currently 10,347 Democrats in Levy County and 10,587 Republicans. e total number of voters in other categories is 4,839. Some Democrats have switched to Republican to vote in the primary in the county commission races. ey can switch back to Democrat after the primary and vote as a Democrat in the Nov. 4 general election, or they may continue to be Republican. e turnout for election primaries in Levy County has traditionally been low. e election numbers provide insight into the low turnout. Approximately 60 percent of the countys voters wont be able to cast a ballot in the county commission races this year because only Republicans can vote. In years past when Democrats controlled the primaries, Republican voters were often left on the sidelines until the general election. All registered voters can vote in the Nov. 4 general election.Ocers Chase Down Murder Suspect in North Florida Williston Council Wrestles with Health Insurance Increase, Pay Raise continued from page 1A insurance, but the gure has been lowered to 7 percent with the revised quote from Nature Coast Insurance. e citys total 2015 budget is $12,947,653, but with relatively low reserve funds for a budget of that size. e general operating fund reserve is $779,000 and utility reserves are $3,300,000. Weve been dipping into reserves for the last two years and that has to stop, said Councilman Charles Goodman. One sore point with some council members is the fact that the city is transferring an $11,200 more than last year from electric fund revenues to the general operating budget. e city is proposing to transfer $638,200. We were not able to reduce that number, said Stephen Bloom, city nancial analyst. Years ago the city council was comfortable with transferring money out of the electric utility into the general operating budget. e idea back then was that it prevented higher property tax millage rates. But the attitude is dierent now. Cason said the big push to reduce utility fund transfers came from former city attorney and former Councilman Norm Fugate at the time Fugate was serving on the council. Goodman noted that one of the chief complaints he hears from city residents concerns high utility rates. Everyone I talk to says the rates in the city are ridiculously high, Goodman said. Willistons utility rates are dicult to compare to other cities because it operates its own electric and gas utilities. ose numbers along with water, sewer and garbage are included on customer utility bills. e money that is transferred to the general fund comes entirely from the electric power utility. e electric is still covering everything, Bloom said. Council members are discussing utility rates, but the board has decided to wait until after the city budget is nalized to hold a budget workshop on the rates.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Meet the Cops Who Gave Their Lives Creators SyndicateRandom thoughts on the passing scene: I dont know why we are spending our hard-earned money paying taxes to support a criminal justice system, when issues of guilt and innocence are being determined on television -and even punishment is being meted out by CNNs showing the home and address of the policeman accused in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting. One of the big dierences between Democrats and Republicans is that we at least know what the Democrats stand for, whether we agree with it or not. But, for Republicans, we have to guess. It is amazing how many otherwise sane people want Israel to become the rst nation in history to respond to military attacks by restricting what they do, so that it is proportionate to the damage inicted by the attacks. Amid all the things being said on all sides about the massive, illegal inux of children from countries in Central America, we have yet to hear some American parent saying, I dont owe it to anybody to have my child exposed to diseases brought into this country, no matter what problems exist in other countries! Two headlines in the August 10th New York Times speak volumes about Barack Obama. e top headline reads: Iraq Strikes May Last Months, Obama Says. A secondary headline reads: No Ground Force Will Be Sent, He Repeats. Time was when enemy spies had to risk their lives to acquire such information. Now all they have to do is read the headlines. It is amazing how many people think they are doing blacks a favor by exempting them from standards that others are expected to meet. If you want to know who was the greatest baseball player of all time, please check out the pitcher who led the American League with the lowest earned run average in 1916. He was the only ballplayer who could do it all, including stealing home. British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain was a hawk compared to Barack Obama. At least Chamberlain was building up his countrys military forces while trying to appease Hitler. Obama is cutting back on our military forces while our enemies around the world are expanding theirs. Medical authorities who are trying to reassure us that safeguards will prevent the spread of Ebola in the United States may be unconvincing to those of us who remember how they lied about whether AIDS could be transmitted by blood transfusions. ey may be telling the truth this time, but credibility is one of those things that are far easier to maintain than to repair. Too many people in Washington are full of themselves, among other things that they are full of. However common it may be in politics to split the dierence when making decisions, it is unconscionable to send American troops into a war zone in numbers too small to defend themselves. e smug and smirking contempt of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen, when he began testifying before a Congressional committee in the IRS scandal investigation, told us all we needed to know, even if we never get the information that was supposedly lost when Lois Lerners computer supposedly crashed. Ted Williams great career was interrupted twice by military service -once during World War II and again when he returned to the Marine Corps during the Korean war. What sports star today would voluntarily interrupt a Hall of Fame career to go ght for America, after having already served in the military? Despite TV pundits who say that public opinion polls show Barack Obama is in trouble, the president is not in the slightest trouble. He is doing whatever he feels like doing, regardless of the Constitution and regardless of how many people dont like it, because he is virtually impeachment-proof. e country is in huge trouble and real danger because of his policies, but he is not. One of the most frustrating aspects of watching television news programs that feature debates is the guests who sidestep any question that gets to the heart of the issue at hand, and just go o on a tangent, repeating their standard talking points. ats usually a good time to change the channel or turn o the TV. If politics were like sports, we could ask Israel to trade us Benjamin Netanyahu for Barack Obama. Of course, we would have to throw in trillions of dollars to get Israel to agree to the deal, but it would be money well spent. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateIf youve been watching cable news, reading Hollywood celebrities tweets and listening to race-hustling opportunists, you might think that every police ocer in America has a nger on the trigger, hunting for any excuse to gun down defenseless youths. is hysterical nonsense must be stopped. e Cirque du Cop-Bashing, with Al Sharpton as ringmaster, is working overtime to exploit the deadly incident in Ferguson, Mo. at means stoking anti-law enforcement res at all costs. Are there bad cops? Yes. Does the police state go overboard sometimes? Yes. Do the demagogues decrying systemic racism and braying about assassinations know what happened when teenager Mike Brown was tragically shot and killed last week? No. Heres a reality check. While narcissistic liberal journalists and college kids are all posting Hands Up seles in hipster solidarity with Ferguson protesters, its law enforcement ocers who risk their lives in war zones every day across the country. e National Law Enforcement Ocers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF) reports that a total of 1,501 law enforcement ocers died in the line of duty during the past 10 years, an average of one death every 58 hours or 150 per year. ese include local and state police ocers, federal ocers, correctional ocers and military law enforcement ocers. Fact: Last year, 100 law enforcement ocers were killed. On average, over the past decade, there have been 58,261 assaults against law enforcement each year, resulting in 15,658 injuries. Fact: New York City has lost more ocers in the line of duty than any other department, with 697 deaths. Texas has lost 1,675 ocers, more than any other state. Just this week, NLEOMF released preliminary fatality statistics from August 2013 to August 2014. Total fatalities are up 14 percent, from 63 last year to 72 this year. Five ocers were killed in ambushes, which continue to be a major threat to law enforcement safety, the group notes. Among the men in uniform who gave their lives this summer: --Police Ocer Scott Patrick of the Mendota Heights Police Department in Minnesota. He was shot and killed while conducting a trac stop on July 30. Patrick leaves behind a wife and two teenage daughters. --Police Ocer Jerey Westereld of the Gary Police Department in Indiana. Westereld was shot in the head and killed in a July 6 ambush while sitting in his police vehicle after responding to a 911 call. e suspect had been previously arrested for domestic violence and for kicking another ocer. Westereld, a 19-year police department veteran as well as an Army veteran, leaves behind a wife and four daughters. --Ocer Perry Renn of the Indianapolis Police Department. He was shot and killed while responding to reports of gunre on July 5. After 20 years on the job, Renn chose to serve in one of the citys most dangerous areas, even though his seniority would have allowed him to take a less dangerous role. He chose to work in patrol to make a dierence in the eld, Police Chief Rick Hite said at Renns funeral. Every day, Perry got out of his police car. Renn is survived by his wife. --Deputy Sheri Allen Bares, Jr. of the Vermilion Parish Sheris Oce in Louisiana. e 15-year law enforcement veteran was shot and killed on June 23 while investigating two suspicious suspects. Bares had been mowing his lawn while o-duty when he witnessed a suspicious car crash. When he went to investigate, he was gunned down. e assailants stole his truck as he lay dying. Hes the type of person that would give his shirt o his back to anybody, a cousin said in tribute. Anyone that knows Allen will tell you that he was that kind of person. Bares leaves behind a wife and two children. --Police Ocer Melvin Santiago of the Jersey City Police Department in New Jersey. Santiago, a proud rookie cop who loved his job, was ambushed on July 13 by a homicidal armed robber. Santiago was 23 years old. After Santiagos killer was shot dead by police, the violent Bloods street gang vowed to kill a Jersey City cop and not stop until the National Guard is called out. Al Sharpton, concocter of hate-crimes hoaxes and inciter of violent riots against police, had no comment.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Letter to the EditorRandom Thoughts is is not about our great and loved actor/ comedian who recently passed. It is about Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi. Imagine driving in an unfamiliar location and suddenly realizing youve missed the exit. Darn it how far to the next exit and how do I get back? Ive done it, youve done it, and its easy to do! Now take the situation of former U.S. Marine Andrew Tahmooressi (in San Diego receiving PTSD treatment) driving to a destination requiring departure one exit prior to the Mexican border in the metropolis of San Diego, California. Mistakenly he missed his turn and funneled into a busy multi-lane check point into Mexico with no exit (in fact several cases have been documented of ambulances doing the same during emergent response calls). Andrew informs the Mexican border patrol agent he does not desire to enter Mexico; however, the uniformed agent motions him forward. Following orders, Andrew is now in Mexico. Unfortunately he has many belonging in his vehicle post his discharge from the Marine Corp, some of which happens to be three legal rearms, unfortunately not legal in Mexico. Do not pass or go back, proceed directly to a Mexican jail! is is not a game! What happens next is nightmarish. Andrew initially receives poor legal representation, a dirty jail, death threats, with hostile inmates and prison guards. Eventually Andrew is moved to another prison and somewhat safer environment. Last week during one of the rare hearings in the Mexican jurisdiction process, the judge decided to send Andrew back to the original prison. Hopefully it is because it is closer to the border and easy transfer in the near future of Andrew back to the United States, but there has been no explanation and the horizon is grim. Many have tried to help, including a California Congressman and several military veteran organizations, which at this point seems to be of no avail. POTUS has been in Mexico since the arrest and many hoped a good word would be made from Andrews former Commander in Chief to ocials in our neighboring country to help resolve the honest mistake of a U.S. citizen. at hope was apparently a dream or POTUS doesnt have enough clout! I suspect it was a dream and POTUS never mentioned anything to benet the former Marine who served two tours in combat and completed his tours with an honorable discharge. Whats the problem? Is it because Andrews mother Jill is not as physically attractive as Sgt. Berghdals mother? Yes, the woman we saw on television when POTUS stood on the steps of the White House with his arm around her waist celebrating the trade or her son whose questionable actions made him a pawn for the release of eight terrorists who had killed or directed the killing of U.S. and NATO soldiers? POTUS just stated yesterday while on vacation from Marthas Vineyard; Were all part of one American family, while making a statement in his attempt to quell the Ferguson Missouri problem hours after directing not one, but two federal agencies (Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigation) to perform separate investigations to help resolve that matter. Mr. President, how about some help for the matter of our American family member Andrew Tahmooressi lost in Mexico? Glen Wilson, Williston, FLLost, Depressed, and Lack Of Proper Support

Commission Chairman Ryan Bell raged for several minutes as he attempted to paint a dark picture of the Journal using spin to report Chieands request for an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck. Bells own take on the issue was muddied by his own desperation to regain solid political footing as Tuesdays election approaches and the ALS issue continues to haunt him and Commissioner Chad Johnson. To regain his footing, Bell decided to attack the Journal to put his own political spin on the ALS issue and cast himself in a more positive light. Meeks complained about the City of Chieand not answering questions the county had posed about ALS and he said he was oended by suggestions that the county commission was stalling to push the issue past the election. Meeks noted that only two commissioners, Bell and Commissioner Chad Johnson, are up for re-election. ree commissioners are not running for election, he noted. He said Chieand hasnt had an ALS unit for 100 years, so why cant the city wait for six months until the county can explore the issues and come up with a solution. We still believe the county is trying to stall the issue until after the election. e easy way out for the county commission would be to work in any way possible to make it easier for the City of Chieand to obtain an ALS non-transport truck. e county commission must license the truck. e county has far more nancial resources than the city. e county commission receives $2.5 million annually from a 1-cent discretionary surtax that can be expended on county or city operations. ey could oer to help fund the program. Instead they have made the program so expensive that Chieand may never be able to aord the high cost of hiring three full-time paramedics and purchasing an ALS truck loaded with as much life-saving equipment as any ambulance. In raising the costs, commissioners may very well defeat the Chieand ALS project without ever having to make a sensitive political decision that could cost votes in the election. In the Aug. 14 Chieand Citizen, Bell mistakenly wrote that the 1-cent sales tax revenues accrue and are used to pay down the bond fund. e ordinance adopted by the county commission in 1992 states, e proceeds of the surtax shall not be used for the purpose of serving bond indebtedness. e truth is that the entire $2.5 million generated annually by the sales tax ows directly into the county commissions general operating fund and can be used for many purposes including general county or city operations. e money literally disappears into the general operating fund and is never designated for a specic purpose. Its a huge slush fund for this group of county commissioners who pretend to be scal conservatives. Tuesday started badly for Witt when he decided to take a copy of the one-cent sales tax ordinance down to show County Coordinator Freddie Moody in the commission oce complex in the courthouse. When Witt arrived he could see Meeks seated on a chair in Moodys oce doorway. But the long hallway prevented Witt from seeing others in Moodys oce. Turns out, Meeks, Bell, Johnson and Commissioner Danny Stevens were all seated along the wall in Moodys oce chatting about something unrelated to county business as Witt arrived. We wonder if Witts accidental intrusion into this pre-meeting meeting of the county commission made someone a little angry. Oh well. From Witts many long years of covering county commissions in North Florida and North Central Florida, he has gained a degree of wisdom about commissioner ethics and the state Sunshine Law. e Sunshine Law requires all elected ocials in local government to discuss the publics business in advertised public meetings. One attorney in Panama City, who in our opinion had a great deal of integrity, told Bay County Commissioners years ago that they could meet in a group during recesses of county commission meetings as long as they werent discussing the publics business. But he added that if the public perceived that commissioners were violating the Sunshine Law, perception was reality. ey could get into just as much trouble. He advised commissioners to avoid even the appearance of impropriety in their public duties. We suggest Levy County Commissioners do the same and stop meeting as a group in a back room of the courthouse. e Bay County attorneys advice holds true to this day. While we dont know what Levy County Commissioners were talking about Tuesday in the pre-meeting meeting in Moodys oce, perceptions are reality. We can just imagine what they might have been talking about after they gave Witt the cold shoulder and he left the room. Witt wanted to know if commissioners were interested in seeing the 1992 ordinance that created the 1-cent sales tax, or if they had read it. Bell growled that he read it a long time ago and saw no point in reading it again since Witt would write the story and put his spin on the issue. Witt told commissioners the ordinance explained how the money could be spent. Meeks was the only commissioner who asked how the money couldnt be spent. Witt noted that it cant be spent to repay bond issues. He left at that point. e advertised county commission meeting was about 10 minutes away from starting, and the three ring circus was about an hour away. During the meeting, it got crazy early when resident Renate Cannon asked commissioners to explain a paragraph in one of Witts stories noting that the county Department of Public Safety claims to operate two Advanced Life Support trucks, and yet the trucks haul only spare equipment. e trucks are driven by experienced paramedic supervisors who can do anything an ambulance paramedic can do, and so the county calls the trucks ALS non-transport trucks. But the trucks are not ALS non-transport. If the county were to approve Chieands request, the city would have the rst and only certied ALS truck in Levy County. e countys trucks were purchased with a combination of Emergency Medical Services and reghting funding. Cannon was curious about why two types of funding were used to purchase the county trucks. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said she couldnt provide an answer to Cannons question and said she tries not to rely on newspaper articles for her information. Bell jumped into the discussion, but his answer was convoluted and didnt really provide Cannon with a clear answer. Public Safety Director David Knowles was seated a few feet behind Cannon, but was never asked by Bell to provide an answer. Knowles was the best person to answer Cannons question. County commissions can wield power through the tax money they control. ese commissioners act as though the money they are spending belongs to them. ey give the impression that they believe their prestigious jobs belong to them. Weve got a news ash for commissioners. e money they spend belongs to the people of Levy County, and the same is true of their jobs. County commissioners are only temporary occupants of their positions. e voters will decide if they keep those jobs. We also feel a need to refresh Commissioner Meeks sense of common courtesy. Late last week Witt was walking into the courthouse when Meeks stopped and asked to chat. He walked up nose to nose with Witt and asked if he had ever threatened Witt. Witt said he couldnt recall any threats. Meeks said a man told him that he had threatened Witt. It seemed a bit odd that Meeks would walk up to Witt and face him nose to nose to ask a question he could have voiced from a few feet away. Ironically the question was about threats. It was curious to say the least. Was it a case of more intimidation? You be the judge. e Journal is not backing down. Levy County Ordinance No. 92-3On Sept. 10, 1992 Levy County Ordinance 92-3 was passed by a super majority, 4-1, of the Levy County Commission to levy a one-cent discretionary sales surtax. We are providing a very short synopsis of the uses and non-uses listed but you can see the entire ordinance signed by then Chairman W. S. Yearty and attested to by then Clerk Douglas M. McKoy on our website at: www.levyjournalonline.com e surtax can be used for xed capital outlay, xed capital expenditures, reconstruction, improvement of public facilities that have a life expectancy of ve or more years, any land acquisition, land improvement, design and related engineering costs and for operation of local government, both county and city. It cannot be used for servicing bond indebtedness.

Shortelle. She told Levy County Commissioners Tuesday that despite the two months of dry weather regular rainfall seems to be coming back and aquifer levels and stream ow conditions throughout the district are normal or higher than normal. Shortelle said springs have also returned to normal or above normal ows. eyre as beautiful as they have been in a decade, she said. She said 150 million gallons a day of fresh water ows from Manatee Springs and Fanning Springs combined. Shortelle said the district is improving its scientic data collection in an eort to deal with regional drawdowns of the aquifer. She said Levy County stands at the fringe of the drawdown areas. e water district is a member of the North Florida Regional Water Supply Partnership which is attempting to deal with drawdown issues. e reality is water doesnt stop at your county boundary any more than it stops at other county boundaries, Shortelle said. SRWMD is also working with a cost share program to assist farmers and ranchers with improving water conservation and eciency of water use. She said 13 million gallons of water is being saved each day through the cost share program. As part of her presentation to commissioners, Shortelle presented the board with a check for $30,401 for payment in lieu of taxes. e payment in lieu of taxes program has existed for many years, but this year the Florida Legislature did not support the program. She encouraged commissioners to contact their legislative delegation. In other news, commissioners agreed to provide a letter of support to the Chieand City Commission for their application to the Florida Department of Economic Developments Competitive Florida Technical Assistance Program Grant. e city is interested in developing economic strategies for the city. e Chieand Vision Committee is actively working towards these goals, according to City Manager Mary Ellzey. e grant money could be a good funding source to hire an engineer, architect or planner to assist in designing a revitalization project. One of the requirements was a letter of support from the county commission. In an unrelated matter, commissioners approved a resolution supporting the designation of a portion of U.S. 19/98 in Otter Creek as Deputy Sheri Atticus Haywood Ellzey Memorial Highway. A copy of the resolution adopted by commissioners will be sent to the Florida Legislative Delegation. State lawmakers representing Levy County would introduce a local bill to make the designation possible. e Florida Department of Transportation commended the Levy County Transit bus system for the high level of safety and security for its buses. FDOTs Transit System Safety and Security Compliance Audit team audited the transit system. e Department nds that the Agency is well run by seasoned management and sta, very knowledgeable with supporting transit services in compliance with Florida statutes in general and Rule Chapter 14-90 in particular, the executive summary said. e report also found deciencies the transit system must address including qualication, selection and training of drivers; bus maintenance and event investigation. e transit system is required to address the concerns and submit a corrective action plan. Commissioner Mike Joyner was absent from this meeting.Commissioners Receive Check for Payment in Lieu of Taxes from SRWMD Director Williston Moves to Prohibit Illegal Synthetic Drugs continued from page 1AWilliston Attempting to Strengthen City Noise Ordinance continued from page 1A was killed. Strow said part of the problem with synthetic drugs is that the manufacturers can change one ingredient and escape prosecution because the drug has a dierent chemical makeup. is is one way to close the loophole, Strow said. e ordinance says health warnings have been issued by public health authorities regarding the adverse eects of synthetic drugs that mimic the eects of marijuana, PCP, cocaine and methamphetamines. ese substances are easily manufactured and distributed as innocuous over-thecounter products in various retail outlets, including local gas stations and convenience stores. e proliferation of these products presents a serious public health risk, especially to children and teens, the ordinance said. Strow said he doesnt want these drugs pushed in Williston. He believes the ordinance will give police the authority to keep these drugs o the market in Williston. a reasonable person of normal sensibilities; exceeds the sound level limits set for by the ordinance, or is plainly audible. Noise meters do factor into the ordinance. e new law sets maximum sound levels during the day and night and the maximum amount of time a disturbing noise can be made. ere are exemptions from the ordinance such a non-amplied human voice. However, yelling, shouting, whistling, hooting or generally creating a noise disturbance during the nighttime hours in a residential area in other than a time of emergency is prohibited. e sounds of emergency vehicles like police cars and re engines are exempted from the ordinance. Sounds made by non-amplied public speaking activities on public property or public right-of-ways are allowed if the events are legally authorized. Sounds produced by organized sports events, reworks or by permitted parades on a public right-of-way or public property are exempt. e ordinance doesnt cover every conceivable noise issue. Council President Jason Cason said he can hear Crab Fest clearly if the wind is blowing from the right direction. e sound of trains coming through town is allowed. Strow says the sound of a Jake Brake on big trucks could result in a ticket under the new ordinance. City Attorney Fred Koberlein said rst time violators will be given a warning.Bronsons Broken Water Pipe May Lead to More Shuto Valves continued from page 1A e city closed on a loan last week for the sewer project. e city is planning a groundbreaking for the project at 10:45 a.m. on Sept. 23 near the Dogan Cobb Municipal Building.In other news: e town council will meet ursday at the James H. Cobb Park to discuss where to build the proposed multipurpose building/gymnasium. Several sites have been discussed. Clerk Kelli Brettel said the Florida Department of Environmental Protection has approved the towns plan for a nature trail, picnic area and nature overlook along the cypress head swamp at the back of the Cobb Park. DEP has made it clear the town must develop the 10 acres at the back of the park with recreational facilities before it can build the multipurpose building. e 20-acre site on the west side of the park was slated to be developed with a $20,000 grant the town received many years ago, but the grant was never used. She said the town will solicit quotes from contractors qualied to build the 5-foot wide nature trail and overlook. Brettel said Verizon is moving forward rapidly with plans to construct a 195-foot cell tower in the northwest corner of Cobb Park. e company surveyed the entire park. e town will have to clear the 100 by 100 footprint for the cell tower. e town will receive $1,000 of revenue monthly as part of a lease arrangement. Brettel said the town is nishing paperwork connected with the project. Dunford said the towns water tower is leaking from a couple of spots at the bottom of the tank. He said the leaks grew worse over the weekend. A company has been hired to drain the tank and install two relief valves to x the problem. e tank was scheduled to be drained on Tuesday. Dunford said water pressure might drop a little.

Bronson played LaBelle High School, Santa Fe Catholic and Bartow High School, a Class 7A team. He said the Eagles gained condence after the rst day when they realized they could match up well against bigger schools. We held our own, Porch said. But Fridays game against Wildwood will be the rst taste of combat for the Eagles since summer camp. After Wildwood, the Eagles will travel to Chieand for the rst regular season game on Aug. 29. Bronsons strength lies in its senior dominated oensive and defensive lines that moved the ball well in the spring classic against two larger schools, including Williston. e Eagles are a power running squad that can pass o running plays or drop back in the pocket to throw the long ball. e team is led by Jason Ranalli, a 210-pound quarterback who can run the ball o the option. Porch said he is trying to get Ranalli to drop 10 pounds of weight before the season starts. Losing weight would add to his speed. e Eagle defensive secondary has improved considerably during the past two weeks of practice and during a summer of 7 on 7 drills, according to Porch. He said they pleasantly surprised him. e seniors on the oensive and defensive lines improved their strength considerably over the summer months. Porch was pleased with their eort. He said seniors often dont gain as much strength over the summer as younger players. Bronson players appeared ready for Fridays fall classic after the opening day of classes Monday, and so were the coaches. ey spent a good bit of time watching computer videos of Wildwood in action. is is a good opening game for us, Porch said.

We are located 3 miles N. of Williston on Hwy 27A. e tale of how I acquired my new Browning rie has become legendary around the oce, at least to those married guys with direct deposit like me. eyve made me tell it again and again. I dont even have to exaggerate to have them sit there and stare at me in awe. I can almost see their little wheels spinning. Often one of them will pull me to the side, Listen, I got my eye on this new big screen. You got any suggestions? ey refuse to even consider I may have acquired that rie innocently, with hardly any conniving. e rie came about on this wise. My little brother Heath had taken to spinning our childhood tales every day at lunch in our work break room. Unfortunately, a lot of his recollection seemed to center on how I used to bully him. Its not that I didnt enjoy hearing about my glory days, but he was really rallying a lot of sympathy at my expense. I knew Id better quash his thunder a bit. I thought and thought, but only one solution came to mind; and since Heath was more rightly classied as a younger brother now than a little one, I had a few reservations about trying bullying him again. I just couldnt gure out what to do. en the thought hit me, youre a Christian now, You could always pray! So I did. I laid the whole twisted tale out there on the table before God. Big mistake! Or at least I thought so at the time. e Lord seemed to side with dumb ole Heath! He wrenched me out like a wet beach towel and hung me out under such conviction that I began to have a series of very strange thoughts, like I might need to make it up to Heath or something. en an idea hit me. Begrudgingly, I knew what I must do. I gathered my courage and took my plans to the boss. My wife listened intently, and even seemed genuinely sympathetic when I told her how bad I felt for whomping that little wimp all those years. In fact, she was close to tears by the end of my speech, so I nished strong, It would just mean the world to me if I could just get him that new Browning rie hes been hankering for. Maybe shed heard some of Heaths sob stories before, because she simply snied and uttered the words every husband longs to hear. Ill get the checkbook. e next day we got that knucklehead a brand new Browning. I was sorely tempted to skip town and keep it for myself. en the thought hit me, e Lord is already in it, I better just stick with the plan. So I did. I wrapped the gun up in some old Christmas paper and dropped it o by Heaths house that night while he was out. I left him a note explaining how I just wanted to be a good brother for once. I guess I even meant it, because it kind of felt good. Heath called me later. Id never heard him more excited. He chattered on and on about that rie. en he sprung it on me. He and his wife had been talking. Since hed already saved up the money to buy a rie for himself, they wanted to use it to buy me one just like it. Of course, I put up a good ght and all, but then the thought hit me, Who was I to rob poor ole Heath of all the joy this giving stu was bringing? It turns out shooting straight with God was a good idea after all. Once I enlisted Gods help He hit me with one good idea after another! Maybe thats what King David meant when he said, ( Trust in Him at all times, you people; Pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah Psalms 62:8 KJV). You dont have to read very much of the Psalms to realize King David wasnt afraid to share things with God; good, bad, or ugly. He just laid his feelings right out there. God didnt strike him down or anything. In fact, I think the Lord actually honored him for it. It may be a crazy thought, but what if God already knows about all our secret rubbish? What if Hes glad when we nally get real enough with ourselves that we can get real with Him? It worked for King David.

Setting the Record Straight In the University and Main Street column of March 10, Donna W. Garrett was quoted: It is the contention of old-time Floridians that Miami is actually pronounced My-Am-Ma. However, I was born and raised in Mi-Am-Me and have always said it that way. Ms. Garrett may have been born and raised in My-Am-Ma but, if she has always pronounced the name of the place My-Am-Me, as she contends, then she is using an incorrect, although common, pronunciation. Circa 1950, the Miami City Commission ocially declared the pronunciation of the place to be My-Am-Mah. I still can see the bold headlines of the Miami Herald proclaiming this news! Along these lines, I was born and reared in Ah-Lah (as in Ha, Ha, Ha)-Chu-Ah County near the town of Ah-Lah-Chu-Ah. How it oends my ear to hear Ah-Lach-U-Ah or AhLach-U-Ay as pronounced by so many non-natives. JANICE DOUGLAS ARINSON, Gainesville
