Wal-Mart Police 2A ISIL & Our Kids 4ACommission Budget Dates 8A Bronson Football 1B 4-H Roundup 1B Fueling Station 8B Owner of Unlicensed East Williston Nightclub Convicted of Felony ChargesBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA Williston man was convicted in Levy County Circuit Court on Aug. 26 of operating an unlicensed nightclub in east Williston where alcohol, marijuana and cocaine were purchased and consumed by customers. Eugene Donald, Jr. played music loud enough that neighbors were forced to spend the night in motels because they couldnt sleep, the sheris oce said, and cars were unable to travel down the street in front of the club because of parked vehicles. e Levy County Sheris Oce said gunre was also heard in the area of the club and one man was wounded. Donald was convicted by a six-member jury of maintaining a place where alcohol was sold without a license and of keeping or maintaining a public nuisance where drugs were used or sold. Undercover agents working for the Florida Department of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco entered Club 212 on Aug. 24, 2013 and saw patrons openly using marijuana. ey also noticed several Blood gang members had pot for sale. Agents working undercover purchased marijuana and alcohol in the club on Oct. 12, 2013. ey saw patrons smoking marijuana, according to a report. State agents entered the club on Oct. 19, 2013 and purchased alcohol and observed marijuana being used by customers. Agents were also approached by customers wanting to sell them powder cocaine. e undercover investigation continued on Nov. 1, 2013 when the Levy County Sheris Oce with assistance from the Joint Gainesville Police Department and Alachua County Sheris Oce High Intensity Drug Tracking Area (HIDTA) unit made two marijuana purchases in the club and two purchases of alcohol. e HIDTA unit also purchased marijuana from two patrons. ey saw marijuana being used by patrons and believe they saw powder cocaine being used in the club. Levy County sheris deputies had previously been called to Club 212 in response to loud music and shots being red. One victim was shot in the foot by gunre. Many ghts had broken out and residents of the area complained of the road being blocked to Club 212. Law enforcement ocers on more than one occasion saw Donald and his wife Chrissi Donald carrying boxes of alcohol from their vehicle to the club. Mrs. Donald is facing the same charges as her husband, but has not pleaded out or gone to trial. By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere closest county commission race anyone can remember nally ended Friday when District 4 county commission candidate Lilly Rooks defeated Commissioner Ryan Bell by three votes. Every vote counts, Rooks responded in a text to the Journal. Rooks nished with 1,728 votes to 1,725 for Bell. Commissioner Chad Johnson gained three votes in the machine recount but nished with 35 less than Rock Meeks. Johnson totaled 1,705 to Meeks 1,740. Jones said the Bell/Rooks race was the closest she has seen in her 20 years working in the elections oce. Bell was trailing Rooks by ve votes after Tuesdays primary election. ere were four separate recounts of the vote. e rst was Tuesday night when the canvassing board rechecked the machine vote tapes for accuracy because the District 4 race was so close. en followed a count of 14 provisional ballots on ursday where Bell added one vote to his total. On Friday the canvassing board ran the ballots through the same scanners used on Tuesday and there was one vote dierence. A ballot in Raleigh had jammed on election night and hadnt been counted by the scanner. When it was run through the vote scanner Friday, Bell got one additional vote. ree votes separated Rooks and Bell. e machine recount also revealed there were 95 under votes. An under vote occurs when the voter doesnt ll in the oval for either candidate. e canvassing board reviewed each ballot to ensure the 95 voters hadnt marked either candidates name. As required by state law, the canvassing board moved to a location where the manual recount of under votes and the By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterTwo ocials of the Suwannee River Water Management District met with Bronson ocials on Aug. 17 and said they are convinced a ditch that runs along the western border of Bronson is in fact a ditch and not a stream as claimed by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Leroy Marshall, a water resources engineer for SRWMD who works on FEMA issues for the district said its obvious the ditch has numerous culverts that were installed many years ago and could not be a natural occurring stream or a navigable waterway. Marshall and John C. Jack Hampton, vice president of Water Information Technologies associated with Akins North America, Inc. also expressed concern about an earthen roadway that was built across the ditch near Bronson by a private landowner. e ditch is blocking water ow from Bronson to neighboring Chunky Pond. e two men met with Town Clerk Kelli Brettel and Councilman Berlon Weeks after being By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterOne of the most frustrating federally funded housing projects in Levy County history continued to be a source of irritation for County Commissioners Tuesday when the cost and timetable for xing a septic tank and drain eld changed again at a home near Inglis. Ronald Vanzant of Jordan and Associates and Joakim (Jay) Nordqvist, principal engineer with GSE Engineering and Consulting, Inc. said the troublesome drain eld lled with stormwater during recent heavy rains and will force changes in the way water is drained from the property. He described the drain eld as being like a big bath tub. Commissioners voted to approve a change order allowing the engineering rm to conduct tests to determine water levels in the drain eld and in a neighboring canal and then build a ditch containing a drain pipe that will capture stormwater from the house and carport and channel it to the canal. Commissioner John Meeks said he wasnt an engineer, but he wondered if the Southwest Florida Water Management District would approve the new design since it jets water directly into a canal. Nordqvist said the water he is talking about is ground water, but he acknowledged it was a concern. Commissioners were reluctant to approve the request in light of the fact that they had previously discussed the possibility of storm water from heavy rains draining from both sides By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA request by a Williston area minister for construction of a sidewalk along County Road 335 was partially honored by Levy County Commissioners Tuesday when they agreed to seek bids to get a better idea of how much the project would cost. Pastor Carl Carnagie of Miracle Vision Tabernacle said school children walk along the busy road each day to attend the Miracle Vision Tabernacles Vision Christian Academy. He said a sidewalk would make their walk safer. Carnagie has attended county commission meetings previously to ask for the sidewalk but the closest he came was when commissioners agreed to apply for a state grant to fund the project. Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce Greenlee said he led for the safe routes to school grant earlier this year but doubts the project would be funded or constructed before 2018 or 2019 at the earliest. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said he visited the site and found truck trac heavy. He described the trac ow as truck, truck, truck, truck, and car, meaning it was mostly truck trac.

Brettel asked to have her base pay raised from $38,000 to $55,000. She currently receives about $44,000 to $45,000 when overtime is factored into her annual earnings as the towns top administrator. e debate broke out between Councilman Berlon Weeks, who spoke through a conference call connection and Mayor Franklin Schuler, with both men agreeing Brettel was worth much more than she is paid. Schuler cautioned the council and Weeks that the town needs to be careful about how much it gives employees for pay raises. He said the town cant aord to give everyone what they are worth. We dont want to get like a lot of other places,

Wesley, John, Mike and Debbie CHIEFLAND MEDICAL CENTER 1113 N.W. 23rd Ave. Chie and(Across the parking lot from Wal-Mart)OPENMon.-Fri. 8:00 a.m.5 p.m.Sat. 8:30 a.m. NoonWalk-ins Welcome!Call for an appointment: 493-9500 By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA website that writes satirical stories published a ctitious article on Labor Day claiming Williston was replacing its police department with a new privatized police force operated by Wal-Mart. It wasnt true. e Williston Police Department wasnt amused. is story is a futile attempt of humor and has absolutely no truth! e Williston Police Department will continue to serve the Citizens of Williston and all who pass through like they have done since 1897, said Chief Dennis Strow. e story prompted numerous calls, emails and Facebook posts asking about the validity of the story and its ctional Mayor Kevin Michaels. e mayor of Williston is Gerald Hethcoat. e story claimed the city is struggling nancially, which is also untrue. Wal-Mart doesnt take the site seriously. ats a satirical website, spokesman Betsy Hardin told the Journal. We work very closely with the police departments in the community where we have stores. But she said Wal-Mart doesnt provide private police services for communities. Strow said he discovered the article when a friend from Ocala called him to make fun of him and the claims made in the story. He posted it on the police website and told people it was pure ction. But the story triggered an avalanche of comments and criticism from people who thought the story was true. Over the weekend people began going ballistic, he said. People said its because city leaders have refused to let Wal-Mart come into town. e problem is that people believe everything they read on the Internet, Strow said. We dont even have a Wal-Mart and state law says police departments cant be replaced by private security, Strow said. e story dragged on for three pages, quoting a Wal-Mart ocial as saying the company was excited to be taking over police duties in Williston. e interview was ctitious too. Were grateful that the town of Williston granted us this opportunity and we look forward to showing America that Walmart is more than just a retail outlet. We arent just here to help you save money, were also hoping Walmart is known throughout the nation and around the globe for dabbling in other elds than just retail, from haircuts to auto repair to commercial property and beyond, the satirical article quoted Georey K. Lisle with WalMart as saying. Its a lie, responded Strow. eres no truth to the story. Hethcoat said when he rst read the story he thought maybe the people mentioned in the story were from other cities with the same name, like Williston, South Dakota, but when he checked those city websites there was no one by that name. Well then I thought maybe were going to get a Wal-Mart store in Williston, and that wasnt true either, he said. It was all a joke. Hethcoat said it seems odd to him that people can just make up a story that is completely false. He is aware of all the calls and emails the police department received as a result of the story. To me it seems sort of crazy that people can write what they want and it doesnt have to be true, he said. Hethcoat said he was interested in taking advantage of the $100 voucher the local Wal-Mart was oering Williston residents when Wal-Mart takes over the towns police department. Strow said the $100 voucher was the only thing he liked, too. Of course, they were joking.Website Fabricates Story about Wal-Mart Replacing Williston Police

Proud to be an American ComebacksAt a time when our president and some politicians tend to apologize for our country`s prior actions, here`s a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country. JFKS Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60s when Charles de Gaulle decided to pull out of NATO. De Gaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded Does that include those who are buried here? De Gaulle did not respond. You could have heard a pin drop When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of empire building by George Bush. He answered by saying, Over the years, the United States has sent many of its ne young men and women into great peril to ght for freedom beyond our borders. e only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return. You could have heard a pin drop. ere was a conference in France with a number of international engineers taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intended to do, bomb them? A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day; they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day; and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their ight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have? You could have heard a pin drop. A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the American, English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of ocers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French? Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied, Maybe its because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldnt have to speak German. You could have heard a pin drop. And Finally... Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carryon. You have been to France before, monsieur? the customs ocer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. en you should know enough to have your passport ready. e American said, e last time I was here, I didnt have to show it. Impossible. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France! e American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. en he quietly explained, Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldnt nd a single Frenchmen to show a passport to. You could have heard a pin drop. Be Proud to be an American. Motorcyclist Critically Injured in Chieand CrashA motorcycle slammed into the side of a car in Chieand Saturday, critically injuring the biker, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. e driver of the car, Vera Mae omas, 68, Chieand, was stopped in the northbound lane of U.S. 19 in the left turn lane. When she turned left onto State Road 20 she drove into the path of the southbound motorcycle. e motorcyclist, 47-year-old Daniel Keith Mason of Minnetonka, Minn., was ejected when the motorcycle hit the right front of the car. He landed 20 feet south of the collision. FHP said the crash occurred at 10:25 a.m. Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation. asked by U.S Rep. Ted Yoho to investigate complaints by the town that FEMA is starting a Waccasassa River Basin study that describes the ditch as the Magee Branch Tributary. Brettel and Weeks said the ditch is not a natural stream. Marshall and Hampton said the study is in the discovery stages where FEMA will take input from residents of the basin to reveal any problems that might be occurring, but they didnt think it would be dicult to rename the ditch a ditch. e town has hired Jones Edmonds to develop a stormwater master plan that includes the ditch and Chunky Pond. e rst phase of the study identied the ditch as a ditch and noted that the swamps and wetlands west and northwest of Bronson have considerable storage capacity for ood water. Bronson would like to nish its study before the FEMA study begins. Levy County Commissioners say they are waiting for the towns stormwater master plan to be completed before they decide whether to assist the town with the ditch issues. Bronson has researched the ditch and found that it was constructed as part of the Works Progress Administration program to put people back to work in the Great Depression. It was constructed as a ood and mosquito control structure. Levy County Mosquito Control at one time maintained the ditch with consent from private landowners when there were obstructions or blockages that caused ponding or ooding on private property. In the late 1960s, the state and Southwest Florida Water Management District widened a canal and expanded a small dam that allows water to drain from the pond during and after the rainy season to prevent ooding in Bronson. Weeks gave Marshall and Hampton a tour of the facility and showed them portions of the ditch that are blocked by an earthen roadway constructed by a landowner. An Ocala Star Banner story dated March 14, 1966 said the Waccasassa Basin Chunky Pond project would expand the small dam and canal leading to it and construct a mosquito control ditch four miles long, 12 feet wide and four feet deep southward through Deer Pen Slough and into Magee Branch. e story said Levy County Mosquito Control would fund costs above what is spent by SWFWMD and the former State Fresh Water Fish and Game Commission. Bronson has had problems convincing anyone in state or federal government that the ditch is a ditch and that it was intended as a ood control and mosquito control structure. FEMA has taken the position that the ditch is a tributary of the Magee Branch stream. e stream exists several miles south of Bronson at a much lower elevation. Bronson has no record of being ooded. e towns business district is built at the edge of a swamp, but the elevation of the town rises sharply from U.S. 27A to nearby sand hills. e town didnt ood during Hurricane Elena in 1985, nor did it ood during the heavy El Nio of 1997-98 or Tropical Storm Debby in 2012. FEMA has declared portions of downtown Bronson as being ood hazard areas. e town would like to change those maps through its stormwater master plan study. Marshall and Hampson are not sure what they can do about the blockage in the ditch but they plan to research statutes and district rules to nd out what can be done.Water District Ocials Say Bronson Has a Ditch, Not a Stream continued from page 1A Debate Breaks Out about Bronson Clerks Pay Raise Request continued from page 1A spending for this and spending for that, Schuler said. Weeks said Brettel does the work of a clerk and a city manager and possibly one other position and isnt being paid for what she had done to bring the town out of the dark era when its nances were in ruins. With the town on the brink of growth due to the upcoming sewer expansion project, Weeks said Brettel is in a pivotal role to continue to manage the towns growth and bring prosperity and jobs to Bronson. She is invaluable and I hope you never get rid of her, Weeks said, adding later, she is an amazing workhorse. e subject of Brettels pay raise request was raised by Councilman Bruce Greenlee, who was the rst to say Brettel does the work of two to three administrators worth a combined salary of $125,000 in towns like Inglis and Chieand. When you go to other cities these jobs are handled by two or three people, Greenlee said. Greenlee said he would return with a proposal for compensating Brettel and the towns other employees.In other business: e town council was ready to approve ADT as the company that would provide nighttime security services at the town library until Levy County Library Director Lisa Brasher spoke up and said she believes the company used by the county would be far less expensive. e Bronson Library has been hit by numerous burglaries. e quote from ADT was $249 for equipment and installation including two motion detectors, an interior sounder, door contacts and a keypad. e monthly monitoring free would be $51.99. e council held o on buying that system when Brasher said she believes the town could get a dierent system from Security Systems of North Central Florida for a $20 monthly monitoring system. Council members gave Fire Chief Dennis Russell permission to spend up to $800 to purchase a security system for the re house. Russell said numerous pieces of equipment have disappeared, including a $3,500 radio that has yet to be found. He believes cameras in the re house will prevent further thefts. He plans to buy the system at the Sams Club in Gainesville. Greenlee took council suggestions on which roads they would prefer to have improved with a state Small County Outreach Program (SCOP) grant. e town has received a letter from the Florida Department of Transportation asking for proposed projects. Among the council favorites were NE 78th St. and NE 98 Ave.; Cobb, Blitch and Hardee Streets; and Pine Lane. e state will look at community benet, condition of the roads and the number of residences on the streets. Russell told council members the Levy County Commission gave the town $25,000 to upgrade its air packs for Fire Rescue units. e town will provide the other $25,000. Resident Elijah Williams asked the council why certain projects never seem to be completed. He was particularly interested in a sidewalk the council had discussed. Schuler and Greenlee said the sidewalk project Williams sought will cost about $30,000 and has been placed in the towns new capital improvements schedule of projects. But Greenlee said the town cant just spend $30,000 on a sidewalk without planning for the expenditure. He said the same is true of the trac light at Pine Street and U.S. 27A. He said the highway belongs to the state and the state will determine when a trac light is needed at the intersection. e council learned that County Commissioner John Meeks has spent a considerable amount of recreational money under his control buying sports equipment for the towns youth, including football uniforms, new helmets, shoulder pads, a water boy system and playground equipment. Each county commissioner receives a set amount of recreation money to spend in their district each year. Meeks represents Bronson.

With many people now acting as if it is time for a woman to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualications. It would not matter to me if the next ve presidents in a row were all women, if these happened to be the best individuals available at the time. But to say that we should now elect a woman president in 2016 is to say that we are willfully blind to the dangers of putting life and death decisions in the hands of someone chosen for symbolic reasons. If we were to choose just a woman as our next president, would that mean that any criticism of that president would be considered to be a sign of being against women? No public ocial should be considered to be above criticism -and the higher up that ocial is, the more important it is to hold his or her feet to the re when it comes to carrying out duties involving the life and death of individuals and the fate of the nation. We have not yet had a Jewish president. If and when we do, does that mean that any criticism of that individual should be stigmatized and dismissed as anti-Semitism? What of our rst Italian American president, our rst Asian American president? Human beings of every background are imperfect creatures. When they are in a position high enough for their imperfections to bring disasters to more than 300 million Americans, the last thing we need is to stie criticism of what they do. It is by no means guaranteed that this country will survive the long-run consequences of the disastrous decisions already made by Barack Obama, especially his pretense of stopping Irans becoming a nuclear power. Obama may no longer be in oce when those chickens come home to roost. If we wake up some morning and nd some American city in radioactive ruins, will we connect the dots and see this as a consequence of voting to elect an unknown and untried man, for the sake of racial symbolism? Among those who look around for someone to blame, how many will look in the mirror? Presidents already have too much insulation from criticism -and from reality. When President Calvin Coolidge caught everyone by surprise in 1928, by announcing that he would not run for reelection, despite a prosperous economy and his own personal popularity, he simply said, I do not choose to run. Coolidge was a man of very few words, despite his knowledge of multiple languages. Someone once said that Coolidge could be silent in ve dierent languages. But, when he later wrote a small autobiography, Coolidge explained the inherent dangers in the oce of President of the United States, especially when one person remains in the White House too long. It is dicult for men in high oce to avoid the malady of self-delusion. ey are always surrounded by worshippers. ey are constantly, and for the most part sincerely, assured of their greatness. ey live in an articial atmosphere of adulation and exaltation which sooner or later impairs their judgment. ey are in grave danger of becoming careless and arrogant. Of presidents who served eight years in oce, he said, in almost every instance the last years of their terms show little constructive accomplishments and those years are often clouded with grave disappointments. Another president chosen for demographic representation (whether by race, sex or whatever), and further insulated from criticism and from reality, is the last thing we need. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Irresponsible Choices By Lt. Col. Allen Weste Obama White House reined in the Pentagon after the joint press conference last week delivered by Secretary of Defense Hagel and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Sta, General Dempsey, where they spoke plainly about the ISIS threat. e new mantra was that ISIS didnt pose an immediate threat to the American homeland and was more of a regional danger. Remember Marie Harfs idiotic comments that James Foleys beheading had nothing to do with the U.S.? Well, not 72 hours later, there was a revelation that shook this country (or at least should) an American had been killed ghting for ISIS. As reported by USA Today, Douglas McArthur McCain, a 33-year-old American who lived in Minnesota and San Diego was killed in Syria, where he had gone to ght alongside terrorists. A national security spokeswoman at the White House, Caitlin Hayden, said upon his death Tuesday that U.S. ocials had been aware of his presence in Syria. McCain had traveled to Syria to join a militant group, believed to be the Islamic State, Associated Press reported, citing a U.S. ocial who declined to be identied by name and spoke only on condition of anonymity. After the incident with Carlos Bledsoe, who was radicalized, went to Somalia and Yemen for terrorist training, and returned to America to gun down two U.S. Army soldiers at a Little Rock recruiting station, you might think wed have a better system. And to hear that U.S. ocials were aware of his presence begs this question: how many more do they know are there? Instead of listening in on the cell phone calls of average everyday Americans, the federal government can focus their eorts on these guys. We were aware of U.S. Citizen Douglas McArthur McCains presence in Syria and can conrm his death, Hayden said. We continue to use every tool we possess to disrupt and dissuade individuals from traveling abroad for violent jihad and to track and engage those who return. Well, may I suggest we do a little bit better? His cousin, Kenyata McCain, said she was in touch with Douglas McCain as recently as Friday, and he was telling all of us he was in Turkey. I know that he had strong Muslim beliefs, she said, but I didnt know that he was in support of ISIS. I didnt think he would be. CNN reported that McCains uncle, Ken McCain, said the State Department informed the family Monday of McCains death. Ken McCain told CNN the family was devastated and just as surprised as the country to learn of his nephews participation with IS. Ken McCain said his nephew converted from Christianity to Islam several years ago. Perhaps the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) conference in Detroit this week can address this situation after all, the theme is Generations Rise. And as I sit here writing this, I hear reports that there may be another American jihadist ghting with ISIS killed over this past weekend. e Free Syrian Army through the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) is providing the information what is chilling is that they had their passports on them. So do we now ocially recognize we have a homegrown jihadist issue in America? Can we stop with the political correctness and rmly embrace the concept that there is radical Islamist proselytizing and recruiting occurring in America? is isnt just a foreign intelligence failure, its also a domestic intelligence failure or is the Obama administration purposefully dismissing this issue? ere can be no debate that ISIS is just some regional problem, it is a growing global threat especially through its use of social media and international recruiting eorts. In South Florida, namely Pompano Beach, construction will soon begin on a massive new Islamic center right in the heart of the black community. A black pastor, ONeal Dozier, has been sounding the alarm and all he gets in return is castigation as an Islamophobe. Perhaps, just perhaps, he was prescient and could see the coming storm of homegrown Islamic jihadism targeted in the black community. I remember the vaunted Arab Spring. Well, we are in the midst of the Islamist nightmare. Allen West was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. He is the third of four generations of military servicemen in his family. During his 22 year career in the United States Army, Lieutenant Colonel West served in several combat zones: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was a Battalion Commander in the Armys 4th Infantry Division, and later in Afghanistan. He received many honors including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals and a Valorous Unit Award. In 1993 he was named the US Army ROTC Instructor of the Year. After his retirement from the Army in 2004, Allen taught high American Killed Fighting for ISIS: Anybody Still Think We Dont Have a Homegrown Problem? Washington, D.C. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today issued the following statement regarding the reported killing of Steven Sotlo, an American journalist from Florida, by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) terrorist group: Steven Sotlo was a man of enormous courage and decency. rough his journalism, he demonstrated deep personal compassion toward the Middle East and its people. He hoped to shine a light on both the good and the bad of the region to show the world the dramatic potential of its people as well as the stark forces of evil holding them back. As Steven was a native of Florida, my oce has been in contact with his family throughout their ordeal, and today my heart goes out to all who loved him as they make the painful transition from fear to grief. Stevens balanced and earnest approach to journalism was met with love by many in the Middle East, but with brutal disdain by those whose tactics stood in such clear contrast to his own. rough Stevens execution, ISIL has demonstrated yet again its limitless capacity for cruelty and its unbridled hatred of freedom-loving people everywhere. ISIL continues to establish that its violent grasp for regional control represents a threat to the American people, our allies, and the principles of freedom and human rights that we cherish. e horrifying clarity of ISILs message toward America should have been met from the beginning with an equally clear opposing message. ISIL is now the best funded terrorist group ever established and has large areas of territory under their control. ere is no disease that becomes easier to treat the longer you wait, and as history has shown time and again, it is the same with malignant forces in global aairs. If we do not act now to assist our Iraqi partners and moderate Syrians who oppose ISIL, as well as utilize our own forces to directly target ISILs leadership, the result will be more suering and tragedy for our people. continued to page 5A

He said if the request was honored by the commission, it might be asked to fund other sidewalk projects. I dont know if I could justify that happening, Stevens said. Commissioner John Meeks said he was torn over the issue, and not just politically. He said one of his campaign promises was to build a sidewalk up to the Bronson schools. eres no sidewalk leading to either Bronson school. But he said the countys policy has been to use state grant funding to build sidewalks. He said he would feel terrible if one of those children walking on CR 335 was injured after the county turned down the project. Stevens reminded commissioners it took eight years to get a sidewalk funded at Williston Middle School. Stevens was worried that Greenlees cost estimate of $14,000 could rise when the sidewalk was actually built. He wanted more exact cost estimates. County Coordinator Freddie Moody suggested the county obtain bids. He said the bids may not be binding. e bids would give the commission a better of idea of what the true project costs would be. Meeks motioned to let Greenlee bid the project to determine the actual cost. It passed 4-0 with Commissioner Mike Joyner absent. Williston City Manager Scott Lippman said a major truck company uses County Road 335. He suggested contacting the company and proposing a public/private sidewalk project. Moody said the road does run through Whitehurst Cattle Company property, but he said his impression is that there may be friction between the Whitehurst family and school ocials that might eliminate any possibility of a public/private project. e county coordinator said bids should come back about the time a new board is seated. In addition to the cost of the sidewalk, he said the county will probably be charged a fee by its engineer to write the bid specications. into the new drain eld and causing problems. ey felt they had received assurances that the issue was being addressed. But Nordqvist said the project is extremely complex and designing a drain eld that works is dicult. e home of Debra and Roberto Tarafa was constructed in Peaceful Acres. e house stands on a peninsula of land bordered by a canal on one side. e peninsula extends into Lake Rousseau. e soil drains poorly. Engineers suspect soil removed when the canal was built was likely used to create the residential lot for the home and yard. e property is a low spot where water naturally collects from a nearby street. Unfortunately this is not well suited for a septic tank. It shouldnt be there, said Nordqvist. e county rehabilitated the home with a federal Community Development Block Grant and had no idea the property would drain poorly. On top of that, Commission Chairman Ryan Bell said the previous owner added pipes to the drain eld area that were invisible until county contractors tried to install a new septic tank and drain eld and discovered the pipes. Nordqvist said one of the old pipes was a direct outfall into the canal when the drain eld overowed. Bell said board members are past the point of being angry about the constant changes and delays, but he and others on the board wanted assurances the project would be completed by Nov. 30, the latest deadline set by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, the state agency overseeing the CDBG grant. Nordqvist said he was condent the project would be nished by Nov. 30. Commissioners approved the change order for the project on a 4-0 vote. Commissioner Mike Joyner was absent for medical reasons. He also missed the previous meeting for the same reason. e additional testing by GSE will cost no more than $2,000. GSE will also perform monitoring services at a daily cost approved previously by commissioners. e goal of the commission is to build a septic tank and drain eld that will function for many years to come. e system must be operable for a year and a day to fulll the countys warranty on the work.Inglis House Rehab Project Continues to be Troublesome continued from page 1ACommissioners to Seek Bids for Williston Area School Sidewalk continued from page 1A Summer is here and it is hot, hot and hotter! Even though the temperature outside is rising, nd comfort in knowing you can prevent scorching energy use this season. To beat the heat and protect yourself against unusually high energy use, Duke Energy Florida encourages you to always use SUNBLOCK. S Schedule routine air conditioning system maintenance. Cooling typically accounts for up to 30 percent of your electricity cost in the summer. A thorough examination can ensure your system is operating at maximum eciency. U Use a fan to supplement your air conditioning. A fan can make you feel three to four degrees cooler, so you can set your thermostat a few degrees higher to save on cooling costs. In the summer, fans should rotate in a counter-clockwise direction. Keep in mind that fans cool people, not rooms, so only use them in occupied living spaces. N Nurture your landscape Planting the correct tree species in the correct location can lower household energy consumption up to 25 percent. Shrubs and small trees near air conditioners and heat pumps can provide shade while minimizing the amount of energy needed to cool your home. However, be sure to keep airow to the units open and free of debris. B Block the sun by closing blinds, drapes and shades during the hottest part of the day. is will help keep your home cool and your energy bill down. L Light your home with less heat Compact-uorescent light (CFL)bulbs last up to 10 times longer and use 75 percent less energy than standard bulbs. One CFL bulb is four times more energy-ecient than a regular light bulb and produces less heat. O Opt to cook with your outdoor grill or countertop appliance, such as your microwave Using the oven on a hot summer day forces your air-conditioning unit to work harder, which can lead to higher energy use. Choose to grill outdoors instead of baking and savor the sweet taste of energy savings. C Clean or change your airconditioning lters monthly. Dirty lters can reduce airow and increase operating costs. K Keep your thermostat at the highest comfortable setting. For each degree above 78, youll save 10 percent on your cooling costs. For central air conditioning systems, keep the fan switch on your thermostat in the auto position when cooling. Having the fan switch on continuously could increase your monthly electric bill.

8A Log Cabin Quilter e Log Cabin Quilters met urs., Aug. 28th at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Cynthia from Ellzey came by for a rst time visit and helped with the quilting on the quilt in the frame. Joyce wanted to see how her quilt top looked with the hearts that are to be appliqud. Dorothy from Oak Park Village brought her nephew, Mike from Switzerland in for a visit. He came to celebrate her 90th birthday with her. Were making plans to enter a display in Scarecrow City, an event planned by the Chieand Chamber of Commerce. e event will start Sat., Oct 4 and end before anksgiving. Were planning a scarecrow lady and are busy getting the bits and pieces to assemble her. One of our problems is that she needs a head. We were discussing it ursday and Alice Mae said that all we need is a round piece of material and a little more material for the ears. She said that it was easy and there was nothing to it. I told Alice Mae that she was talking to me and it would be anything but easy for me. ankfully she took home some material and poly ll to work on the head. Now all we need to do is plan everything else. Youll have to wait until October to nd out where our ideas will lead us. Greg and the boys were out this week. Inside and out look terric. anks Lancaster.This Welcome Rooster panel was a recent donation and made a great wall hanging. Doris had nished this penny rug that well hang in the Museum. Penny rugs were stated in the 1800s when women used whatever was available to make beautiful decorations for their homes.

County Judge Tim Browning, the canvassing board chairman, held up each ballot for the Press to see to ensure total transparency. Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones suggested he hold them up for the public to see. Jones and County Commissioner Danny Stevens were the other two canvassing board members. One ballot had an ink spot in one of the ovals, as though the voter had thought about lling in the oval and placed the point of the pen on the ballot, but changed his or her mind. e ink spot, which was nothing more than a speck, wasnt big enough to qualify as a vote. State law says the canvassing board determines whether enough of the oval was lled in to indicate voter intent. ere were no over votes. An over vote occurs when a voter lls in the ovals of both candidates, or sometimes will ll in both ovals, then mark an X through the one he or she does or doesnt like. e canvassing board must decide how the voter intended to vote. But merely marking an X through an oval doesnt mean the voter intended to vote for that person. If the voter drew an arrow pointing to one oval or the other, it would provide a clearer indication of intent, according to Jones. e provisional ballots were an education for all who listened in the audience. Voters who are legally registered to vote in another county but have a current address in Levy County can vote with a provisional ballot. eir signature at the precinct must match their signature from the county where they were registered. Canvassing board members reviewed each provisional ballot and voted on whether the ballot met the requirements of Florida. ere were a variety circumstances that resulted in provisional ballots being cast. e elections oce sta called the counties where the provisional voters had been registered to conrm they were legally registered to vote there. State law allows registered voters to cross county lines to vote if they have a legal address in the second county. e state views this type of situation as a change of address, according to Jones. ey cant vote in both counties. e ballot of a man registered in Alachua County with a Levy County address was approved because the signatures matched. A voter registered in Leon County with a Levy County address, drew a split vote from the board. Canvassing board members disagreed on whether the signature was the same. e vote was 2-1 to approve the ballot. e vote of a Democrat who was registered in Levy County but didnt provide identication at the precinct was found to be a good because the signatures matched. Another case involved a voter registered in Leon County with a Levy County address. e vote was 3-0 to approve the vote. e signatures matched. One case involved a Bradford County voter whose signature at the precinct didnt match the one from Bradford County. e Republican ballot was rejected on a 3-0 vote. e ballot of a Republican who tried to vote absentee and also vote at the precinct was rejected on a 3-0 vote. He tried to vote twice, the board said. e ballot of a non-party voter who was registered in Broward County but the vote here was rejected when the signatures didnt match. e vote of a man who was a registered Republican and requested a Democratic ballot, and voted as a Democrat, was rejected. His vote was rejected 3-0 because he wasnt registered to vote as a Democrat. He had a dierent ballot than his party, Stevens said. Florida has closed primaries. All candidates in the two county commission races were Republicans. Only registered Republicans could vote in those races. Democrats could vote in state-wide races and one judicial race, but non-party voters could only vote in a judicial race. In one precinct a non-party voter forgot to bring his or her identication. e signatures matched and the ballot was approved on a 2-1 vote. ere was disagreement on the board as to whether the signature on the provisional ballot matched the voters signature in the elections oce. e ballot of a voter registered in Marion County with a Levy County address was approved because the signatures matched. A registered Democrat from Citrus County who had a Levy County address was approved by a 2-1 vote. e board disagreed on whether the signatures matched. Another ballot was approved for a Republican voter who brought in identication listing her maiden name. She had married and hadnt changed her identication. e canvassing board checked the signatures and approved her ballot 3-0. A Democratic absentee ballot was rejected because the signatures didnt match. e ballot of a Democrat from Alachua County who has a Levy County address was approved when the signatures matched.

Story and photos by Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronsons fumbles, dropped passes, an interception and its failure to stop a kicko return added fuel to Chieands power running game Friday and helped lift the Indians to 42-14 victory. We made too many critical fundamental errors to beat a good football team, said Eagle Coach Cameron Porch. We didnt take care of the ball and we didnt tackle well. Porch described Chieand as a physical team, which he said is not a good matchup for Bronson, but he said if Bronson had played assignment ball it would have been okay. Chieand Coach Aaron Richardson said he has good kids up front on the line and We put 11 out there that are as good as anyone in 1A. Chieand elded a big oensive line and big running backs with speed. Richardson described Bronson as an in your face physical team. I dont think its any secret that Bronson is the same way we are its all downhill, Robinson said. But we executed well at times and had some success. Chieand played heads up ball at the start of the game. e Indians gave Bronson the opportunity to receive the ball on the opening kicko, but when the kicker ubbed the kick and it bounced lazily toward the Eagles, they were slow to react. Chieand recovered the ball and took over near mideld, setting up the rst Indian touchdown, a 3-yard run by Levi Murray. e extra point was good. Bronson drove to the Chieand 2-yard line despite a fumble that threatened the drive, but Chieands goal line stand kept the Eagles out of the end zone with 5:40 left in the rst quarter. Chieand took over at its own 2-yard line and drove to the Bronson 9 before the Eagle defense shut down Chieand. A costly fumble by the Eagles on the drive that followed gave Chieand the ball at the Bronson 20 and led to a 1-yard scoring run by Murray. e extra point failed, leaving the score 13-0 with 8:46 left in the second quarter. Bronson recovered a Chieand fumble late in the second quarter and drove to the 50 before the Chieand defense stopped the drive. Chieand took over at mid-eld and drove 50 yards to score on a 19-yard run by Jarquez Williams, leaving the score 19-0 with 2:39 left in the half. e Eagles got the ball rst in the second half and drove 60 yards to score on Patrick Van Pattens run up the middle with 7:22 left in the third quarter. e two-point conversion run failed, leaving the score 19-6. A kicko return by Keegan McLelland gave Chieand good eld position at the Eagle 20. Chieand scored on 20-yard run by Jordan Strong with 6:16 left in the third quarter. Williams, Chieands big fullback, plowed through the Eagle line for the two-point conversion, giving Chieand a 27-6 lead. Bronsons next drive ended at Chieands 1-yard line. But Williams got the Indians out of trouble when he ran 60 yards o right tackle to the Eagle 14. Chieand scored four plays later on a Jamarion Bowers run. Strong ran for the two-point conversion. Chieand led 336. e drive that followed for Bronson ended with Chieands Wyatt Hammond intercepting. Chieand took over at the Bronson 47 but was stopped dead in its tracks by the Bronson defense. e Eagles got back on the scoreboard midway through the fourth quarter when Tyler Sistrunk recovered a fumble at the 50. Bronsons drive nearly ended with a fumble, but the Eagles retained possession. Montrez Jackson, Bronsons fastest running back, broke loose for a 35-yard run to score with 4:50 left in the fame. e two-point pass to Gavin omas was good, leaving the score 42-14.Bronson Mistakes, Chieand Running Game Fuel 42-14 Indian Victory Bronson quarterback Jason Ranalli hands to running back Gary Mitchell. Bronson speedster Bobby Florence cuts sharply for a ve yard gain.Each year, hundreds of Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie County Florida residents suer needlessly from vision problems simply because they cant aord treatment -or even just a visit to an eye doctor. ese individuals live just over the poverty level, dont qualify for government assistance and cant aord insurance.

Do you remember the days after the movie Urban Cowboy came out? Everybody had to have a cowboy hat. My mom couldnt stand to see us go without, or stand any more of our begging, so she took our grocery money and ran my little brother Heath and I down to the Southland Mall. We each picked out one of those fancy straw hats with the pre-bent brim. ey hung low over our eyes giving us that lonesome trail hand look. Mom got so caught up in the excitement she said, Go pick you out one of those feathered hat bands too! I grabbed one that looked like a peacock in full plume. Before we left I noticed a rack of pleather jackets left over from the winter selection, made out of some sort of plastic and rubber leather substitute. Sweet, I declared, Look Mama, these aint but four dollars. I think deep down she knew it was August, but she just couldnt help herself. eres never been a Sheeld from our side of the tree that could pass up a deal. So we each got one, agreeing that eating was way over rated anyhow. When we got home I couldnt wait to run down the street and show my new duds to this older Jr. High girl I was sweet on. Momma insisted I take little Heath. I hued, but thumped his ear and told him to grab his boyong jacket. (I had taken to calling them that because its the sound they made if you dropped one. ey were bad about bouncing right back up you.) I reckon we looked mighty odd making that sweaty walk over to her house, but I remember feeling right proud. I had nally found my true identity. Somewhere inside that sticky rubber jacket was the real me. Id be Bud, and she could be Sissy; just like in the movie. For some reason Sissy didnt feel much like coming out that day though, at least thats what she said from behind the deadbolt. She said we should be going before her neighbors came home. I didnt understand why that should matter, but I assured her wed be back next week when we got our new boots to match. en I thumped Heaths ear, and we moseyed back down that lonesome trail home. Youre probably thinking, at Guy sure is goofy. Well, I say, Let him without regrets cast the rst stone. If my jackets rubber, yours is glue, whatever you say bounces o me and sticks to you. BOYONG! Surely youve had periods of your life that you look back on and wonder, What was I thinking? A better question might be, What am I doing now that Ill say that about later? Without God we all tend to be a little akey. e Bible says in Proverbs 21:2 that every man is right in his own eyes. Even I thought I was wrong once, but of course I was mistaken. It doesnt take a brain scientist or a rocket surgeon to tell you that everyone couldnt be right all the time. I get the feeling somewhere out there somebodys blasting others when theyre actually the ones whove bumped their head. Sobering thought, when you consider it may be you. (I hope its not me right now.) is life can be quite a journey. Five years down the road our whole set of ideals could change. ats why we must keep the Bible as our foundation and nal authority to the absolute truth. If were seeking God and His Word, line upon line, precept upon precept, I believe its possible to live out the rest of our days without straying o into too many more ditches. In the process, maybe we could cut each other a little slack. Surely we could over the non-essentials? I think God does. He knows were all learning and growing day by day. Hes not falling o the throne because I dont have it all together yet. Even a Pharisee would stop and pull his mule out of the ditch once in a while. ( Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy. Matthew 5:7 KJV) In those times a persons gooness crosses the line and moves over into the area of sin, a little correction may be in order. But even then we would be wise to rst consult Galatians 6:1. ( Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted. KJV) But anyway I never did get those fancy cowboy boots. We opted for more of a steady meal plan, and a cheaper pair of rubber rain boots. I guess it was just as well. at girl never would return my calls after that. I didnt mind. Heath and I were having too much fun bouncing around town in our new rubber get-ups.
