Autopsy Contract 3A Bronson Sewer 3A Shootings & Predator 3A Botanical Gardens 6A Bronson Football 1B Bronson FFA 1Bcontinue to page 8A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLife was very dierent in Levy County in the 1950s and 60s and some of the documents from that era were accidentally preserved in a dusty old cabinet in the Levy County Commission meeting room. When Clerk of Circuit Court Danny Shipp took on the responsibility of adding a new sound system to the meeting room and remodeling and expanding the room, he and his sta found documents dating back to the 1950s and 60s period. Part of the remodeling will involve removing an old set of cabinets that were once part of the air conditioning system on the east side of the meeting room. As a rst step in removing the cabinets, sta cleaned out the cabinets and found several boxes of historical documents gathering dust. Among the artifacts uncovered was a 1959 ocial election ballot listing Elliott Whitehurst, owner of the former Perkins State Bank, C.G. Chubby Pettaway, president of Perkins State Bank and Stewart Brock as candidates for the Board of Public Instruction. Frank West was running for prosecuting attorney. A small booklet from the 1958 Suwannee River Beef Cattle Show and Sale, sponsored by the Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Association was also unearthed from the Petition Drive in Final Phase to Secure Community HospitalLetters of support also requestedBy Terry WittSenior Staff Writerousands of tri-county residents apparently have signed petitions in support of the proposed Suwannee River Community Hospital but residents are also being encouraged to continue sending letters of support. Hospital spokesman Frank Schupp said letters from residents giving personal information about their experiences and their familys experiences without hospital care in the tri-county area is important. at carries a lot of weight, he said. Schupp conrmed the proposed Certicate of Need for the hospital was led on Sept. 3 with the Florida Agency for Health Care Administration (ACHA). e 28-bed hospital would include all private rooms, an emergency room, surgery facility, respiratory therapy, physical therapy, lab, x-ray, MRI and other services. I am most appreciative of the over 1,000 letters of support received By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterCircuit Court Clerk Danny Shipp is contracting with an electronics rm to install eight speakers and two 60-inch television screens in the Levy County Commission meeting room to allow visitors to see and hear the proceedings much better. County commissioners for years have used a system of microphones that allows their voices to be recorded for the public record but not to be broadcast to visitors in the audience. Nothing exists in the commission meeting room that would allow visiting professionals to make electronic slide presentations to the board except on an old fashioned pull up screen. Visitors to commission meetings in the courthouse have complained for years that they have trouble hearing commissioners and Sylvia Rutledge accepts a bouquet of owers and the applause of the crowd Friday night. The Bronson football eld was named for her late husband, the legendary John Rutledge, a longtime Bronson coach who was undefeated in six-man football. Mrs. Rutledge is pictured with her family. The presentation was made before the Bronson/Branford football game. Photo by Terry Witt. See the story on Levy Life page 1B. Convicted Robber Sent to Prison for More Than Eight YearsBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterAn 18-year-old Williston man was sentenced to more than eight years in state prison on Sept. 10 for an armed robbery that resulted in no nancial gain but did cause injury to the store owners father. Joshua Lemonte Monroe received 85 months in state prison after pleading no contest to aggravated battery with a deadly weapon, two counts of aggravated By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterMoney is a little tighter than rst thought for the Town of Bronson and that fact may not allow a pay raise the size of the one requested by the town clerk. Clerk Kelli Brettel asked the Bronson Town Council at an earlier meeting to raise her pay from $38,000 to $55,000 annually because of her work ethic, long hours and the fact that she guided the town through tough times. But she acknowledged Tuesday night that the towns reserve funds were just $130,000 and her salary request may be modied. My salary and wages, I still have $55,000 (budgeted), but over the next couple of weeks, or tonight, will probably change, she said. e council adopted a tentative property tax millage rate of 3.8781 that wont generate additional revenue. e vote was 4-1, with Councilman Berlon Weeks opposed. By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere four remaining Levy County Commission candidates for District 2 and District 4 are aware that the question of whether Chieand should be granted a county license to operate an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck remains red hot. Two of the four will be elected to the county commission on Nov. 4. All four were interviewed by the Journal and asked where they currently stand on the issue of ALS non-transport for Chieand. None said they were opposed to the concept, but there were dierences in their degree of commitment to ALS non-transport. District 4 candidate Rock Meeks said he favors ALS nontransport for Chieand as long as the city has the funds to pay for it. I think ALS for Chieand will be a good thing, but the money will have to come from somewhere, if Chieand can come up with the money, he said. He said he doesnt think Chieand should be denied ALS as long as they can aord it.Commission Candidates Dier on ALS for Chieand The late Charles Hardee, a Chieand cattleman is seen in the 1962 Suwannee River Fair book found in the commission meeting room.

By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA recently hired agman at Bronson Speedway died Sunday when a racing pickup truck spun out of control and skidded into the ineld where he was standing with the announcer, according to the Levy County Sheris Oce. e announcer escaped injury. It was a uke accident, said speedway General Manager LeRoy Davidson. Buddy Jack Howell, Jr. 44, was an experienced agman at small tracks in South Florida and had asked Davidson, his friend of 20 years, for the job at Bronson Speedway. e accident occurred at 3:11 p.m. during a spectator race when a racing pickup driven by Gene Lawson took the bank a little high on turn 4 and spun counter clockwise as it slid o the track, said Sheris Lt. Scott Tummond. Foul play wasnt involved. Based on the video clip I saw, he and the announcer were standing side by side; I wouldnt say at the center of the ineld, maybe 10 yards o the track, Tummond said. e angle that the vehicle took as it hit the ineld wouldnt have hit the announcer anyway. e announcer was denitely in danger, Tummond said. Davidson said the death hit him hard because Howell was an employee and a close friend of 20 years, but he said the races will go on this Saturday as planned.Bronson Speedway Flagman Dies in CrashCounty Upgrading Sound System for Commission Meetings County Unearths Historical Treasures from Dusty Cabinet Joshua MonroeBronson Council Votes to Keep Millage Lowcontinue to page 5A continue to page 3A continue to page 6A continue to page 10A continue to page 7A continue to page 5A

3A At 7:32 p.m. on ursday night the Dixie County Sheris Dispatch received a call from a residence on NE 874 Street in Old Town. According to the caller, there had been an altercation at the residence next door and an individual had been shot with a shotgun. Sheris deputies and Dixie County EMS responded to the scene and while en route, dispatchers learned that the alleged shooter had returned to his home less than one-half mile away from the scene. Upon arriving at the scene, deputies found the victim. Gabriel Gabe Edward McCabe lying in the driveway being held by his brother Gary Lee McCabe, Jr. Gary McCabe was removed from the immediate area and EMS personnel evaluated Gabe McCabes condition where they pronounced him dead on scene. Additional Sheris personnel and investigators responded to the scene where they began interviewing witnesses and processing the scene. During this time investigators learned that the suspect, Michael Barnette, and his two sons, Kevin and Kyle Barnette, returned to the McCabe residence after one of Michael Barnettes sons had been in an earlier altercation with Gabe. According to witnesses, as the Barnettes exited the truck, there was a brief exchange of words between Michael Barnette and Gabe and Barnette retrieved a shotgun and shot Gabe McCabe before he and his sons left the residence and returned home. At the conclusion of the investigation on scene, and after conducting the interviews with the witnesses and parties involved, Michael Jacob Barnette, 59 years of age from Old Town, was arrested on the charge of Murder and Possession of a Short-Barrel Shotgun. Kevin Barnette, 26 years of age, was arrested on an unrelated misdemeanor warrant in regard to an alcohol violation. At 7:52 a.m. on Friday morning, Sheris dispatch received a call from Gary McCabe who reported that he too had been shot. When deputies and EMS personnel arrived, they found McCabe who was suering from a single non-life threatening gunshot wound to the leg. Gary reported that he went to an acquaintances home in the early morning hours and during that time was shot by a male occupant of the home. Gary McCabe was treated at the scene and waived any additional treatment. At this time Sheris investigators havent found any connection to the rst shooting incident and the second shooting which does not appear to be connected to the Barnette family. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris OceOld Town Shootings End in Death to One Man, Injury to Brother Michael Barnette Kevin Barnette County Commission Adopts Tentative Budget Levy County Commissioners adopted a tentative budget of $65.6 million and property tax millage rate of 8.2741 on Sept. 11. ey also approved an Emergency Medical Services budget of $3,025.813 and a reghting budget of $1,950,000. e commissions budget included a 3 percent cost of living increase for its 213 employees. Sheri Bobby McCallums budget of approximately $10.9 million is always the largest because he also runs the Levy County Detention Center, the 911 communications center and the 911 addressing center along with his countywide law enforcement operations. e budget hearing was short and only one person from the public attended.Young Suwannee Man Fatally Shot, Alleged Shooter in Jail e Dixie County Sheris Oce and Dixie County EMS responded to a residence in Suwannee, Florida at 9:27 a.m. on Sept. 13 in reference to a shooting. Tyler Snellgrove, 18, from Suwannee, was found suering from a shotgun wound to his torso and was treated and transported to meet with ShandsCair for transport to Gainesville where he succumbed to his wounds. e suspect, Stuart Prescott, 48, also from Suwannee, was located in the area and detained during the initial investigation. Representatives from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Scene Unit and the 8th Circuit Medical Examiners Oce also responded to the scene. It was learned from witnesses that Snellgrove was on the porch of the home talking with a female when Prescott came to the door and confronted Snellgrove before going back inside the home. Prescott then appeared again and went out on the porch where he shot Snellgrove. Snellgrove suered a single shotgun blast before leaving the porch area and retreating to some nearby brush before collapsing. e female went to render aid to Snellgrove and call 911 while Prescott remained on the property for a brief time before leaving to go to a nearby property where deputies located him. After conducting initial interviews, search warrants were obtained and at 3:45 p.m. those warrants were executed on the Prescott property and on Prescott himself. During the execution of the search warrants various items of evidence were collected and will be forwarded to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Crime Lab in Tallahassee. Snellgrove will be taken to the 8th Circuit Medical Examiners Oce where an autopsy will be performed to determine the cause and manner of death. As a result of the investigation, Prescott has been arrested on one count First Degree Murder and Tampering with Evidence. He is currently in the Dixie County Jail awaiting First Appearance. submitted by Major Scott Harden, Dixie County Sheris Oce Stuart Prescott By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson has been notied by the Suwannee River Water Management District that it will receive a $195,000 state springs protection grant to extend a sewer line into James H. Cobb Park. e sewer line will allow the removal of three septic tanks and permit the town to connect a future gymnasium and multipurpose building to central sewer rather than a septic tank. SRWMD said the total funds set aside by the Florida Legislature, the water district and town to protect the Blue Spring, a popular sinkhole and swimming area west of town is $3,110,600. Town Clerk Kelli Brettel said the towns $2.8 million sewer project and a $50,000 grant from SRMWD for water conservation were used as matching funds to secure the most recent $195,000 springs protection grant from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection. e grants and loan make up the $3.1 million protection package for the Blue Spring. e sewer project is a combination loan and grant through the United States Department of Agriculture. Blue Spring is directly tied to the Floridan Aquifer, an underground limestone formation that stores and puries most of the drinking water for Florida. Most cities and towns pump water from the aquifer for drinking water. Farms and homes also pump water from the aquifer. e aquifer is close to the surface in this part of Florida and sometimes emerges from the earth in spring runs like Manatee Springs and Fanning Springs, or in spring ponds like Blue Spring. e Florida Legislature, SRWMD and USDA are attempting to protect the springs and the subsurface waters that feed them by removing septic systems. e Florida Legislatures State Legislative Budget Committee voted on Sept. 10 in support of $15.2 million for water quality improvement projects across the Suwannee River Water Management District. e Florida Department of Environmental Protection evaluated the projects before the legislature gave its stamp of approval. e $3.1 million Bronson project allows the town to expand its sewer system into the downtown business district and additional residential areas. Improvements to Cobb Park wouldnt have been possible without the $195,000 grant. One problem that will be solved by the park sewer line is that water from the adjoining swamp is leaching into a septic tank at the main park concession stand. e park is surrounded by a cypress head swamp. Bronson has scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony for 10:45 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 23 on the lawn of the Dogan Cobb Municipal Building. Many public ocials and agency directors have been invited. ere will be a meet and greet immediately afterward followed by a light lunch. e ceremony is open to the public.Bronson Scores Big Springs Protection Grant for Sewer ProjectSexual Predator AlertOn September 15, 2014 Stanley Greene, DOB 7/24/1964, registered as a Sexual Predator with the Levy County Sheris Oce.

Stanley GreeneCounty Commission Hears Autopsy Statistics, Approves Contract By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners endured 30 minutes of statistics about bodies, deaths and autopsies from the District 8 medical examiners oce Tuesday before approving a new contract for the examiner. Bruce Goldberg, chief of forensic medicine at the University of Florida said the new contract may result in higher costs for the county in part because a new medical examiners oce will be constructed near I-75 and Williston Road. Goldberg wasnt sure how much more the new building and higher cost for some standard services would cost the county, and he said it actually could be less, depending on the number of autopsies. Levy County paid $6,029 each month to the medical examiners oce this year, but there were an exceptionally high number of autopsies that resulted from trac fatalities. e number of autopsies performed for Levy County rose from 55 in the 2012 budget year to 64 in the current year, according to Goldberg. Alachua County pays $33,000 per month for medical examiner services. e new medical examiners building will provide more cold storage space for bodies, up to 25 corpses at a time, and an air conditioning system that will insulate the administrative oce areas from the smells of the autopsy room. In the current medical examiners oce, the smell of decaying bodies from the autopsy room is circulated throughout the building, including the administrative oces, Goldberg said. Asked by the Journal if the Florida Legislature or the University of Florida would shoulder a portion of the cost of constructing the building Goldberg said, e work we do for the state is an unfunded mandate. Counties in the 8th Judicial Circuit will pay the bill. Commissioner John Meeks said the board was familiar with unfunded state mandates. e medical examiners oce performs autopsies in cases involving fatal vehicle crashes, murders, suicides or other unattended deaths that were not from natural causes. In one fatal crash on the Interstate, he said 11 bodies were sent for autopsy. e work of the medical examiners oce must be detailed and accurate for use in court cases. assault with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery with a rearm. Circuit Judge William Davis gave Monroe credit for 245 days served in the Levy County Detention Center and ordered him to serve ve years of probation after his release from prison, court records said. e robbery occurred on Dec. 3, 2013 at the Los Ortiz convenience store on Noble Ave. in Williston. ree men dressed in dark clothing and wearing coverings over their face entered the store. Monroe was carrying a handgun. Monroe pointed the gun at the store owner and his father and told them is is a robbery. Give me your money. One of the co-defendants stopped at the cash register holding a back pack that he wanted lled with money. e store owner refused to give him cash. When Monroe began walking toward the front door, the store owners father got into a physical altercation with Monroe. Monroe hit the older man on the skull with the gun, causing a laceration on the skull. Monroes face covering slid down during the scue, exposing his face to a security camera. All three men began to leave the store. e face covering of one of the codefendants slid down as he was leaving. e three men ran to a home where one of the men lived. Williston police brought a K-9 unit to the scene and the dog began following the scent. One of the men confessed to the robbery and implicated the other two. An individual who wasnt involved in the robbery looked at the security video and identied all three men.Convicted Robber Sent to Prison for More Than Eight Years continue from page 1A

And it does so in plain English. Professor Camarata has been researching, diagnosing and treating children with speech problems for decades. Moreover, he knows from personal experience what it is like to be a parent of a late-talking child, and he himself was three and a half years old before he began to speak. So he has seen this problem from many angles. A child can be years behind schedule in beginning to speak and yet go on to have a perfectly normal life. Some children with delayed speech may even be noticeably brighter than other children their age. But, for other late-talking children, the delay in beginning to speak can be a symptom of much deeper and long-lasting problems, including mental retardation or autism. Most parents are in no position to know which of these very dierent conditions applies to their own child. Nor is it easy to nd out, because there are so many people so ready to put labels on late-talking children that can follow these children for years, even when these labels have no solid foundation. False diagnoses of late-talking children are by no means rare. Even Albert Einstein was thought to be retarded, when he failed to talk at an age when most other toddlers begin to speak. ree renowned nuclear physicists who were involved in the creation of the rst atomic bomb had been late-talking children. Late-talking children can be at any intellectual level, from the lowest to the highest. But it is hard to know what their intellectual level is when they are not saying anything. In his clinical research at Vanderbilt University, Stephen Camarata has devised some ways of discovering what a late-talking toddler knows and understands. But these methods work only when the child cooperates -and cooperation is not universal among very young children. When he cannot get enough cooperation from a child to make a reliable diagnosis, Camarata simply tells the parents that he will have to wait until the child becomes more mature, which may be months later or a year or more later. A false diagnosis is worse than no diagnosis. Unfortunately, too many other people who diagnose late-talking children are not always so careful or so candid. Some rely on checklists of symptoms or on even less reliable criteria. e net result is too often an unreliable diagnosis of retardation or autism that devastates the parents, and leads to counterproductive treatment for the child. As the parent of such a child, I remember all too well what the problems are like. But there was no book like this available then. When my son was old enough to take an intelligence test, his IQ turned out to be well above the national average. Stephen Camaratas Late-Talking Children goes into these and other pitfalls that parents of such children need to watch out for. He also explains what science knows -and does not know -about some of the possible reasons why children talk late. Professor Camarata urges parents to get the most reliable diagnosis they can -and an independent second opinion, when they have any doubts. Above all, he warns them not to park their common sense at the door when they seek either diagnosis or treatment for their child. Too much is at stake to put blind faith in anyone. Although most parents of late-talking children simply heave a sigh of relief when their child nally begins to talk, Camaratas book warns that there are often behavior patterns common among such children, even after they have learned to speak -and that these patterns may conict with the rigidities of many public schools. In a brief review, it is not possible to do justice to the extremely valuable and very readable book that Stephen Camarata has written. It will be like a bright light shining into the darkness for many worried and puzzled parents of children who are years behind schedule in beginning to speak. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

But 13 years after the 9/11 attacks, the freedom to warn is in danger and vigilant whistleblowers are under re. Listen to Robert MacLean. Hes a former Air Force nuclear weapons specialist and Border Patrol agent recruited by the government to serve as one of the rst federal air marshals after 9/11. In 2003, MacLean underwent emergency training to prepare for a new round of al-Qaida hijacking threats. Jihadists exploiting visa and screening loopholes had planned to target East Coast airliners, according to intelligence analysts. For unknown reasons, however, the Transportation Security Administration abruptly called o air marshals from duty on nonstop, long-distance ights -just two days before the anticipated hijacking. How did they notify the air marshals? Cue the Keystone Cops. TSA chose to send the unlabeled text message to our unsecured Nokia 3310 cellular phones instead of our $22 million encrypted smart phone system. ere were no markings or secrecy restrictions on the message, MacLean recounted to Congress this week. We all thought it was a joke given the special training we had just received and the post-9/11 law that nonstop long-distance ights were a priority. A supervisor told MacLean the agency was broke and there was nothing he could do. Appalled at both the dangerous pullback and the reckless way in which the feds notied the air marshals, MacLean then contacted his departments inspector general hotline and was warned he would be cutting (his) career short if (he) pursued the issue further. Instead, he went to the press and made his homeland security concerns public. In 2006, MacLean was red. More than a decade later, the dedicated security expert has battled the feds who retaliated against him. He was forced into bankruptcy and shut out of law enforcement jobs. His legal case heads to the Supreme Court this fall. God bless him. Despite the consequences, MacLean would do it all again in a heartbeat. I blew the whistle because I had to, he testied this week. I could not live with the tragedy risked if I had been the cynical silent observer. MacLean is not alone. Do you remember 10 years ago when then-Federal Air Marshal Service Director omas Quinn refused to allow his employees to dress undercover? Quinn, a former Secret Service agent, insisted that air marshals abide by military-style grooming standards and a rigid business dress policy regardless of weather, time of year or seating arrangement. Yes, really. Marshals were ordered to dress like characters straight out of Men in Black -leaving them vulnerable to terrorist identication. Critics of the code dubbed Quinn the Captain Queeg of homeland security. He even assigned fashion police to enforce the rules his own spokesman denied existed. Homeland security bureaucrats in Washington back then downplayed the marshals complaints about the dress policy and other directives and leaks that undermined the marshals anonymity. Ocials at headquarters smeared the messengers inside and outside the agency and denied any wrongdoing. One top special agent in charge of the marshals Atlanta oce, Don Strange, was red after criticizing the dress code and boarding procedures that made the marshals identities obvious. Another agent, Frank Terreri, faced retaliation for whistleblowing and was forced to sue to protect his job. Today, the Federal Air Marshal program remains riddled with mismanagement, corruption and neglect. In April, FAM Director Robert Bray resigned amid an embarrassing gun scheme probe. And earlier this year, six of 24 air marshal oces closed, and hiring was frozen in Las Vegas, Seattle and Denver. Yet, according to one of my sources, the last class of air marshals graduated from the academy in 2012. e service has not hired any mission-ying FAMs since. In that same time frame, they have promoted or hired over 300 people, and continue to do so, for supervisory and administrative duties. Almost every supervisory position includes a paid move and a yearly salary of $100,000. Every 9/11, pundits talk about how everything changed after the attacks. But the homeland security bureaucracy is as petty, vindictive, wasteful and stupid as ever.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Letter to the Editor Late-Talking Children By S enator M arco R ubioIn The Washington Post at Londons The Chatham HouseSen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. President Obamas call on Wednesday for the United States to lead an international military campaign in the Middle East has the potential to begin a departure from the isolationism that he and former secretary of state Hillary Rodham Clinton have advocated during their years in oce. ere is a risk, however, that the presidents focus on a counterterrorism campaign akin to those waged in Yemen and Somalia, and his reliance on regional partners to deal with the challenge posed by the Islamic State, could lead to the continuation of what has been the most disengaged presidential foreign policy in modern American history. From his focus on prematurely ending wars in the interest of nation-building here at home to his abandonment of Americas traditional allies in an eort to placate Americas enemies, President Obama has made it clear that he is dierent from his post-World War II predecessors. e question now is whether, facing this new threat, the president will rise to the occasion and truly reassert American leadership. Five and a half years of the Obama/Clinton worldview has given Americans a graphic and often horric view of the chaos that is unleashed in the world when America walks away from its traditional role as the guarantor of global security. From Syria and Iraq to eastern Ukraine and the South China Sea, we are seeing what the world will look like if our leaders continue choosing detachment: more violence, rivals and partners alike taking advantage of our inaction, and a steady increase in threats to our citizens and to our prosperity. e Obama administration did not advocate this global retreat on its own. Members of my own Republican Party have also at times embraced the Democrats narrative that too much American leadership is the problem, rather than the solution to global instability. Not too long ago, some neoisolationists even claimed that America has no signicant national interest in the conicts in Syria and Iraq, and that American support for the Syrian opposition fueled the growth of the Islamic State. e truth is that, when the Syrian people rose up in 2011 in protest against Bashar al-Assads brutal rule, our vital national interest was to prevent a protracted civil war in which radical jihadists from all over the world could rush into a vacuum. If they could seize operational spaces, they could use them to plan and carry out attacks against our allies and ultimately America. In the early stages of this conict, responsible, bipartisan voices called for U.S. leadership, hoping precisely to prevent the outcome we have now seen play out. I urged Secretary Clinton and President Obama to intervene decisively to oust Assad and to identify and arm the moderate Syrian opposition. Instead, we were told that Assad was a reformer and that we should not get involved. At a critical decision point early in the Syrian crisis, when our involvement could have swayed the outcome, the isolationist voices won. America eectively stood on the sidelines, letting the problem fester for more than three years as the moderates opposing the regime were pushed aside by better-funded and better-armed jihadists. Meanwhile, the administrations Lets Reject the Veiled Isolationism of Obama and Clinton continued to page 5A

As many of you know I was voted into oce in 2010 as a District 4 representative, I have had this honor to represent my district. However, I found myself working with citizens throughout Levy County and worked diligently to represent the entire county well. I have been truly blessed to meet a number of wonderful people throughout many dierent communities within our county. I have also had the opportunity to work with great county sta and truly get an education on the dierence between the public and private sector. I will always be proud of the accomplishments that I have been able to achieve throughout the time that I served. ese accomplishments would not have been possible without a great working board, county sta and many municipal leaders throughout Levy County. My #1 goal in taking oce was to help with improvement of our economic situation and control of our spending. I feel like Ive assisted in making great strides in both of these areas. I have always said that I wanted people coming to the area to say Levy County is open for business and we had to get that mindset within our county for that to actually be seen by others. I feel that we are on the way. I look forward to seeing the additional progress that the new board will be able to embark upon. Luckily with a rebounding economy our private business is also booming. I thank all of those who called with concerns for my family, however, I can assure you I have always had a number of jobs and there are plenty of opportunities out there for anyone who is willing to work. I wish to thank everyone who contributed to our campaign whether it be through nancial, emotional or physical support. We could not have done any of it or been successful at all without you. Although we fell short this time it was by a mere 3 votes that we were unseated. is truly should be a lesson for EVERYONE that their VOTE does count. I am proud of the citizens that voted. All of them. e ones for me and the ones against, I am proud for everyone that exercises their right to vote. is is one of the rights that no one should take for granted. No matter what, everyone must vote. It has been my honor to serve, it has been my pleasure to learn and it has been a challenging four years. As a business owner and job creator in Levy County I still will abide by my slogan LEVY FIRST. Respectfully, Ryan Bell incoherent policy further empowered Assad, strengthening his grip on power as chaos, violence and refugees spilled across Syrias borders, threatening the entire region.Some former Obama administration ocials, notably Secretary Clinton, have tried to argue that they advocated internally for a dierent approach, that they saw the train wreck coming. But the fact of the matter is that when they were in positions of responsibility, they failed to prevent the situation that now exists. What are we going to arm them with and against what? Secretary Clinton said of the Syrian opposition in 2012. She and other administration ocials who found their voices only after they left oce were complicit in implementing and publicly defending the presidents disastrous foreign policies and well be dealing with the consequences for decades to come. When President Obama nally proposed intervening militarily in Syria last year, his primary objective was to censure Assad for using chemical weapons. He argued that America should remain disengaged from the core conict. He presented no viable plan to remove the Assad regime from power, signicantly assist the moderate rebels or substantially degrade the radical jihadists. More than three years into the conict, we have done very little to support the non-jihadist opposition. After admitting in a late-August news conference that he had no strategy, the president now assures us that he has a plan to destroy the Islamic State. With any time wasted, the challenge only grows. While the president abdicated leadership, other regional actors irresponsibly armed groups within Syria without regard for their ideology or goals. ese nations chose to do so not because of U.S. involvement, but because of the lack thereof. e result is that today, Syria has become a prime operational space for radical jihadists from around the world. With its base in Syria, the Islamic State is now perhaps the most extreme, powerful and capable terrorist group ever, with the clear intention of establishing an Islamic caliphate to dominate the region and launch attacks against anyone who doesnt share its warped ideology. e group didnt achieve all this because America was too involved; just the opposite. It rose most quickly in Americas absence and is intent on driving us out of the Middle East. It is counting on us to abandon our support of Jordan, Israel and other allies. It plans to terrorize us into retreat. America and the Islamic State are on an unavoidable collision course and there will be a price as we nally confront this challenge. We should not think this struggle will be quick or risk-free. But every American should know that the price of further disengagement now would be greater sacrice later. To confront the Islamic State terrorists, we need a sustained air campaign targeting their leadership, sources of income and supply routes, wherever they exist. We must increase our eorts to equip and capacitate non-jihadists in Syria to ght the terrorist group. And we must arm and support forces in Iraq confronting it, including responsible Iraqi partners and the Kurds. In addition, we must persuade nations in the region threatened by the Islamic State to participate in real eorts to defeat it. But we are fooling ourselves if we think that this will be just another counterterrorism campaign like the strategy the United States has pursued in Yemen and Somalia. ose cases are not success stories but containment strategies. e conict in Syria is impossible to contain. e long-term threat posed by the Islamic State is much greater than that posed by al-Shabab or al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. If we are serious, as the president said, about ultimately destroying the Islamic State, we cannot rule anything out. Part of our response should also be reected in our budgetary discussions here at home. It is no coincidence that those Republicans who would continue the presidents failed isolationist policies would also accelerate another grave mistake of the Obama era: the weakening of our defense capabilities through misguided priorities and round after round of defense cuts, even as crises multiply. In their minds, a retreat on the world stage has the benet of a smaller, less capable military to go along with it. Taken together, a continued weakening of Americas role in the world in word and deed, and a reduction in U.S. military capabilities, would mark a dramatic and almost irreversible change in American foreign and national security policy a change that would make the current chaos in the world pale in comparison. As he bears witness to their violations of international order, President Obama likes to levy the charge that Americas foes, from Vladi mir Putin to the Islamic State, are on the wrong side of history. But presidents are not supposed to be witnesses to history; they are supposed to help shape it in Americas favor. ose of us entrusted with public service are called to lead not in the world as we wish it were, but rather in the world as it is. e world is more connected than it once was, and recent history has proved that without American leadership, global instability threatens not only our national security, but also our economy and our very way of life. Leadership demands shaping public opinion, not chasing it; speaking the hard truths on complex issues; and rallying the American people to confront the dicult challenges of our time. And those who seek to lead our country should understand that the world needs more American engagement, not less. Decisive and targeted use of Americas military, diplomatic and economic power will not only defeat the Islamic State and deliver us from this crisis, it will also strengthen America and ensure our long-term security. A key lesson from President Obamas rst 5 1/2 years in oce is that isolationism and disengagement, no matter how theyre disguised, only put more American lives at risk.Lets Reject the Veiled Isolationism of Obama and Clinton continued from page 4Ato date, Schupp said. Citizens, physicians and health care providers are extremely important for AHCA sta to see and read as the letters demonstrate local need and desire for the hospital. e hospital would be constructed behind the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Chieand. ose who have not sent letters should mail them to this address: Frank Schupp, Suwannee River Hospital, 193 Ventura Blvd., Santa Rosa Beach, Fl. 32459 e letters should be postmarked no later than Sept. 22. e letters need to be in the mailbox by that date. ACHA will render a decision on Friday, Dec. 5, 2014. Schupp envisions a groundbreaking early next year and ocial opening in the spring of 2016 if the CON is granted by ACHA. Many people who have purchased property in the tri-county area are in touch with Schupp about progress on the hospital. Its amazing how many people from Ohio, Michigan and Alabama those are the people I get the most from theyre all wanting to know when the hospital is coming. Many are retired and they are waiting to make the move until the hospital is built. Schupp said he is cautiously optimistic about the possibility of ACHA approving the CON. He said nancing will depend on receiving the CON. A letter from the Kansas City, Mo. rm that has agreed to provide the nancing will accompany the information packet to ACHA. Chieand Realtor Doug King, who has been involved with eorts to build a hospital since the 1980s said he is as optimistic about getting a hospital as he has been since the process started. Petitions are being circulated throughout the tri-county area in support of the hospital. My guess is well have several thousand. Of course, I wont know until I get them back, he said. Ill be surprised if we dont get thousands of signatures. King said the petitions are being circulated by churches in the Harmony Baptist Association, a group of Southern Baptist Churches. e petitions are being circulated in all the Drummond Community Bank branches. King and his helpers will collect the petitions Friday and send them out by Fed Ex, probably on Monday. Schupp said a signature on a petition along with the persons address is as good as a letter. But he said personal testimonies concerning health care are priceless in letters from residents of the tri-county area. Chieand dentist Dr. Robert Mount said petitions are being circulated at Barbeque Bills, Ace Hardware in Chieand, the Gathering Table, accountant Robert Beauchamps oce, Chieand City Hall, Treasure Camp and Chieand Medical Center to name a few. Chieand Medical Center has their petitions full and they are asking for more, he said. Weve got to gather them by Friday. At one point Mount said Chieand and Levy County were lagging behind Dixie County, but he said local signatures have picked up considerably and Levy County is ahead. e need is certainly there, but they say we need a good show of community support, Mount said. Five years ago King and his volunteers collected 5,000 letters in support of the hospital, but the Great Recession hit at a critical juncture after the CON was in place and nancing for the facility fell through. is would be the third CON for the hospital. e rst CON was secured for a hospital that was to be constructed in Fanning Springs, but the person nancing the hospital, A.B. Grando, ran out of money before construction was nished, King said. e hospital building morphed into what is now the Tri-County Nursing home. A second CON was secured before the Great Recession hit, but Ameris Health Care was forced to voluntarily give up the CON when nancing could not be found. With the economy in a slow recovery, Ameris Health Systems has led a third CON application and is awaiting an ACHA decision on Dec. 5.Petition Drive in Final Phase to Secure Community Hospital continue from page 1A Council members passed a tentative budget of $4.1 million for the 2015 budget year on a vote of 4-1, with Councilman Beatrice Roberts opposed. Roberts, in making the motion for the lower millage reminded the council that later this year they will raise water and sewer rates. She thought the double whammy of raising the millage and utility rates would be too much for customers. Weeks recommended going with last years millage of 3.8993 mills that would have produced an additional $699, but the council rejected his motion and went with Roberts motion for a lower millage. e council approved Weeks motion for tentative approval of the overall budget, with Roberts opposed. Roberts said she was concerned about the towns customers. If we go with the rollback well just have to nd other ways to cut, she said. Brettel advised the council early in the budget hearing that a decision to keep the millage low would reduce revenues to the point that the town budget would operate in the red. Weeks felt revenues needed to increase if there wasnt enough money to cover expenses. We wont have any choice but to raise it, he said of the millage. But Roberts wasnt interested in an increase in taxes in the same year water and sewer rates would rise. Brettel said the council will discuss water and sewer rates later in the year. ey will also discuss the cost of early voting at that time. Early voting would cost more, but the size of the increase would depend on the number of days allowed for early voting and the type of stang used. e voting precinct has to be staed during those times. e county uses a combination of sta and volunteers to handle early voting at the elections, but Bronson runs its own elections.Bronson Council Votes to Keep Millage Low continue from page 1A
6A rfntnbt n nnrfntb tntn bnrr For more information regarding Fair Housing or to file a complaint, please contact HUD at the phone number above By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterWithin a mile of Williston, adventure-loving tourists can encounter a towering botanical garden that doesnt look much like Florida. Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens may be one of the most unique botanical gardens in Florida, or perhaps the United States. It certainly must be one of the tallest. e garden was built by Dr. Ray Webber along the edge of three, century-old rock quarries lled with water. Exotic plants grow along walkways and the ponds. e walkways 35 to 40 feet above the water give visitors sweeping panoramic views of the garden. On the water below, visitors walk on wooden plank sidewalks that converge on a pavilion. Japanese Maples, Japanese Magnolia, Almond Bush, 15 varieties of bamboo and hundreds of cedar trees can be seen along the ponds and the walkways at the top. e cedars are native to the garden. Azaleas, Gingers, Bromeliads, Palms, Ferns, Vines, Roses, Bottlebrushes, Cypress, Orchids and Victorian Water Lilies grow at the park. We have just about any plant you can imagine, said Garden Manager Lori Wallace. A brochure for Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens invites visitors to tour over 50 quaint, separate gardens and koi ponds born in a 100-year-old lime rock quarter. It has become a sanctuary, home and refuge to many of Gods creatures great and small, the brochure says. Webber, a retired endodontist from Ocala, lives in a two story home perched on a cli above the botanical garden. When he moved to the site, he planted blue catsh in the lime rock pits for shing. My vision originally was to make a pond so I could do a little shing. It accelerated from there, he said. When dirt and leaves began falling into the ponds, Webber decided to build a walkway above the pit to protect the water below. One thing led to another and more walkways were built along the top of the pits. He has spent in excess of $2 million creating the garden since purchasing the property in 1991. He is in the process of donating Cedar Lakes Woods & Gardens, Inc. to a nonprot organization. e entrance to the garden is less than a quarter of a mile from the entrance to Devils Den on the same road -NE 180th Ave. After passing through the main gate and driving over a cattle gap, visitors will drive along a limestone road and then up a steep grade before coming to the entrance to the garden. Visitors who take the full guided tour will be walking for about an hour to an hour and a half depending on their speed. e garden is photograph-friendly. Two large pumps keep ve waterfalls owing over stone ledges. Two aerators, or bubblers as they are known to some, pump air into the water to keep it fresh. Large blue catsh eagerly eat choice tidbits tossed to them from above. One catsh weighs an estimated 100 pounds. For those who arent bothered by heights, Webber has constructed an overlook near a waterfall that looks down on a favorite catsh feeding area. e biggest catsh lives below the overlook. He has his own personality it seems and refused to make an appearance for a Journal reporter. e towering hills above the pits are made of overburden left over from the days of lime rock mining. e overburden was piled on top of the cli tops. Webber deepened the pits to assure fresh water all year long. Visits can tour the botanical garden as part of what Wallace calls a slow opening to introduce people to the gardens. e ocial opening day will be sometime in January. e park hours are 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. It is closed Monday, Wednesday and ursday. Guided tours (10 or more) are by appointment. Guided tours are available to the general public. For those interested in seeing the park, contact Wallace at 352/812-2279. e park phone number is 352/529-0055. Admission is $12; children 6-13 pay $7. Children under 6 enter free; active duty military enter free; children must be supervised at all times. Only Certied Service Animals are allowed. No pets. Non-skid shoes are encouraged.Towering Botanic Garden Near Williston Oers Spectacular Scenery Dr. Ray Webber stands atop his 20-acre botanical garden a mile west of Williston. Photo by Terry Witt.

This view from 30 feet above a pond is worth seeing. Note the blue walkway railing lower right. Photo by Terry Witt.He said most of the comments on Facebook following the race were positive, although a few comments were negative because there were lots of kids in the spectator section who witnessed the death. Davidson said schools in Bronson were advised of the accident so the kids could be oered counseling if necessary. I was planning to cancel the race this weekend, but people said theres no point in it, Davidson said Admission to the track has been lowered from $12 to $5 for the remainder of the season unless there is a special event, Davidson said. e lowering of the entrance fee was planned well before the accident. Davidson discussed lowering the entrance fee with a Journal reporter the week before the accident. Along with the scheduled races Saturday, a Gold Rush is planned for the kids between races. Track ocials will spread 5,000 pennies on the track in two locations on either side of the ag stand. e children who nd a penny with gold coloring on one side will win a free bicycle. Davidson said children 0-5 years old will stand on one side of the ag stand and children 6-12 on the other side. Pennies will be scattered on the track for both groups of children. Davidson said people told him the track on Saturday drew one of the biggest crowds in Bronson Speedway history. Rain washed out the race. e death of Howell resulted in the rescheduled races on Sunday being cancelled. e general manager said it wasnt unusual for the announcer and agman to call the race from the ineld. He said its done all over the nation because the races are generally slow. Sometimes it isnt 100 percent safe, Davidson said, but people love to watch the races because there is danger and speed involved. One of the events Bronson Speedway is sponsoring is to drive children around the track on a school bus on track night. He said the kids love to take the ride. After the buses leave the track the kids are allowed to high ve the drivers in the pit area.Bronson Speedway Flagman Dies in Crash continue from page 1A

Williston Students of the MonthWilliston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat presented certicates to Students of the Month at the Sept. 9 City Council meeting. Isabella Ween, daughter of Titus and Angela Ween, a Williston Central Christian Academy kindergartner was nominated by teacher Melissa Martin. She is a very sweet child. She is always willing to help others and often does so without being asked. is quality is naturally in her. I also see a very strong motivation to do her best academically. Even when she is asked to do something that is hard for her, she will give it her best eort. ese skills along with her natural ability to be polite and encouraging to others are the reasons I chose Isabella as a student of the month. Remy Dube of Williston High School was nominated by teacher Maya Herbert. Remy is a pleasure to have in class because she is always prepared and ready to contribute to class discussion. Additionally she approaches her assignments with the goal of producing college level work. She often goes above and beyond what the rubric requires and puts forth true eort AND creativity. She is also helpful to other students.Williston Mayor Gerald Heathcoat presents certicates to Students of the Month Remy Dube and Isabella Ween. Photo by Terry Witt. According to the American Heart Association (AHA), cardiac arrest is a leading cause of death in the United States. When people, other than rst responders and healthcare providers, know CPR a victims survival rate can more than double. With that in mind, Levy County Department of Public Safety (LCDPS) contacted the Williston High School Health Academy Director to provide students with CPR training. On Tuesday, September 9, three LCDPS members went to Williston High School for an all-day event, teaching CPR to students. Approximately 60 students in grades nine through eleven learned the essential, hands-on skills for CPR. Twelve senior students received American Heart Association CPR certication after showing prociency in CPR skills. If you are interested in being part of this community involvement and learning life-saving skills or volunteering contact the Levy County Department of Public Safety at 352/486-5209.LCDPS Helping Students to Help Others Survive residents speaking at the podium if the speaker has a soft voice, or they mumble, or dont project their voices. Shipp shouldered the responsibility of nding a vendor who could install a system that would project sound in the meeting room and at the same time record all the sound clearly for the public record. e eight speakers will be installed ush with the ceiling. Each county commissioner, the county attorney and clerk will speak into a microphone that will project the voices throughout the room. e system will work best if commissioners speak directly into their microphones. One of the television screens will give visitors a view of any digital presentations. A separate 60-inch screen will be used by commissioners to view the same presentations. Both will project identical images. e microphone at the podium will project the voices of speakers and a portable microphone can be carried to handicapped residents in the room if they wish to speak from their chairs or wheelchairs. Electronic World, which has oces in Gainesville and Ocala, will install the speakers and television screens for $16,000. An additional $25,000 is being set aside to remodel the commission meeting room to make it slightly wider and build a horseshoe-shaped dais behind which commissioners are seated. e horseshoe shaped dais will allow commissioners to see one another and communicate more easily with one another without having to lean over the dais to see the other board members. It will also be equipped with electric sockets that will allow computers to be operated by commissioners during a meeting if they wish go that route. e computers, probably tablets, would carry the commission agenda and backup information. Electronic World will install the speakers and television sets on Sept. 17 and 18. e remodeling of the commission meeting room will probably start around the rst of October. Shipp says commission meetings may have to be temporarily moved to one of the courtrooms during the remodeling process. e commission meeting room sometimes substitutes as a courtroom when necessary, but the legal proceedings are more awkward because the meeting room doesnt have modern electronics. When the new electronics are installed, Shipp said the meeting room can double as a modern courtroom. e speakers in the ceiling will be ush with the ceiling tiles. Electronic World has promised that anyone in the meeting room will be able to clearly hear the commissioners and speakers at the podium. Shipp said there will probably be two microphones on the sta table that can be moved around. Shipp said he told the Electronics World representative that the system had better work as well as he promised. I told him if it doesnt work youre going to be back at the next meeting, Shipp said.

Shipp, Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners & Clerk of the Courts referenced taxing authority as a public record. Pub.: Sept. 18, 2014 Commission Candidates Dier on ALS for Chieand continued from page 1AA question asked of the candidates was whether the city should shoulder half the cost of a study to assure the countys funding source for emergency medical services is not compromised by adding ALS for Chieand. e countys EMS service is funded with a special assessment on property. e county believes the assessment could be jeopardized without a study by a Tallahassee law rm and wants the city to pay half the cost of the study. Chieand takes the position that the county administers the special assessment and operates the EMS program and should pay for the study. Meeks, a Republican, said he thinks the city should step up and show it is interested in having an ALS unit. I think they should split the cost, but I have not sat through the meetings with the present commissioners to see what the relationship should be, Meeks said. Meeks said he has heard that ALS for Chieand would cost an additional $200,000. Meeks said he wonders if the city is ready to step up to the plate and raise its millage rate to pay for ALS. You would think if the city wants ALS they would be searching out avenues to nd funding for it, Meeks said. He said it would be a step in the right direction to nd money for city ALS rather than looking for a handout. Im denitely ready for ALS for the City of Chieand, Meeks said. If the City of Chieand wants ALS, will they be able to maintain it ve years from now; until its all laid out on the line, this is what its going to cost. e city has complained that the county is raising the cost of ALS by requiring three full-time paramedics. Meeks said the county medical director is requiring the three paramedics for the ALS truck, not the county commission. Im not opposed to it. As long as they can aord it and keep it going, Im all for it, Meeks said. Meeks opponent in the Nov. 4 general election is Robert Studstill, a non-party candidate, who remains strongly in favor of ALS for Chieand. Im still for it 100 percent, Studstill said. ey got money to waste on everything else. Studstill said he believes the county commission should use a portion of the 1 cent sales tax it collects to help Chieand fund an ALS unit. He said the commission also needs to cut expenses and nd a way to assist Chieand with adding the ALS non-transport service. Studstill said the county is wasting money that could be spent on ALS. He said the commission spent money to erect advertising signs on the Interstate for tourism. ey can put some money up for an ALS truck, he said. He said the 1 cent sales tax the county imposes on every citizen of the county was meant to be used for the needs of the people of the county. Studstill said the taxpayers pay the salaries of commissioners and the taxpayers should benet from the taxes the board collects. I dont beat around the bush. I tell it like it is, he said. He said the county should use the 1 cent sales tax to pay for the cost of studying the special assessment for EMS funding. If the people want it and need it they should have it, he said. District 4 candidate Jamie Grin, a Democrat, said he remains rmly in favor of ALS in Chieand but its got to be a partnership between the county and the city. eyve got to go in 100 percent to provide the service based on what is needed, he said. I will do whatever is needed on my part as a county commissioner to make it a success. As for whether the city should pay half the cost of the EMS study, Grin said he believes the money would be better invested in providing the ALS service. He is not sure a study of the EMS special assessment is needed. I am not a big supporter of studies when theres a need, he said. Grin said if the study is required by the state he believes it should be grant funded. He said the county and city should sit, could sit, down and work out the details of how they would be refunded with grant money if both sides had to pay for the study up front. But he said the county commission should do a better job of managing its money. He said better management could free up funding for an ALS unit in Chieand. Former county commissioner Lilly Rooks, a Republican who is Grins opponent in the District 4 race, said a key component for her is to know with certainty that the countys EMS assessment would not be jeopardized by adding ALS in Chieand. I think its going to be a key component. It could change a lot of things, she said. She added, ere are things I have to look at rst to get the whole picture. I think it would be a positive outcome for someone who needed emergency help. Should Chieand pay half the cost of a study of the EMS special assessment? ats a hard question, Rooks said. I think they should be invested. She said the city is asking the county for an ALS license. Maybe thats what the county is waiting for; to see if they are really invested in that, she said. Rooks, who was rst elected to the county commission in 1990 and was part of the commission that adopted the 1 cent sales tax, said she wants to look at all the countys taxes and how the money is being spent. She said she has been beset by false rumors that she is too sick to hold oce. She said her health has improved greatly following a blood clot that went to her brain after knee surgery in June. e stroke was followed by two blood clots on her lungs. Her husband Tom Rooks was hospitalized recently following a four-wheeler wreck. She said a lot of prayers went up for Tom and he is doing much better. She said many prayers were said on her behalf as well. Im doing so much better, she said. By Terry WittSenior Staff Writer Levy County Commissioners heard a familiar complaint Tuesday when a group of residents complained about living on a dusty lime rock road and not being able to get the road paved or covered with milled asphalt. omas Head said he has lived in the hammock near Inglis for 40 years and has never been able to get SE 187th Lane, a dusty lime rock road paved despite giving the county a public easement to the road. County Administrative Road Superintendent Bruce Greenlee said the road doesnt meet the countys requirements for trac or houses. He said he has talked with Head and explained why the road cant be paved with milled asphalt. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell suggested Head return to discussions with Greenlee. If Head and his neighbors want to take the road back and pave it themselves they can, or he said the county could impose a road assessment on property owners living on both sides of the road to pay for paving. But Bell said the county is reluctant to place asphalt millings (ground up asphalt) on the road because the millings the county has in storage dont have enough moisture. Greenlee said the dry millings would crumble and leave holes. Bell said he realized Head and his neighbors were looking for a quick answer, but he said the reality is that the county commission doesnt want to do something that would create problems for future boards. e commission chairman said he gets calls every week about dusty or muddy lime rock roads. I can promise you when it rains you will get mud. When it doesnt youll have dust, Bell said.Head said the silicone dust from the road is harmful to the health of anyone who breathes it.Homeowners Ask For Help with Dusty Lime Rock Road

By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronson running backs Montrez Jackson and Garry Mitchell combined for six touchdowns on the ground and in the air Friday and 256 yards of total oense to lead the Eagles to 52-14 win over Branford. e win was all the sweeter on a night when the eld was dedicated to the much respected Bronson Coach John Rutledge who was undefeated in coaching six-man football. Rutledges wife, Sylvia, was on hand with her family to accept the honor and the applause of appreciative Eagle fans. e scoreboard carries the name John Rutledge Field in his honor. County Commissioner John Meeks, who announces games for the Eagles, read a poem in Rutledges honor. e game against Branford was a blowout from the start, with Bronson leading 40-7 at the half. Coach Cameron Porch dispatched his second string to nish the game and gain valuable experience. Porch was happy with the outcome of the game despite a lackluster week of practice. I thought we played real well. We had a bad week of practice. We called them out before the game, he said. Porch said Bronson was called for leading with the helmet twice on defense, leading to unsportsmanlike conduct calls, but he said he liked the aggressiveness of his team on defense. Bronson has a bye week coming up. Its next game is Sept. 26 when Cottondale comes to town. Game time is 7:30 p.m. e Eagles drove from their own 33 to score on a half-yard plunge by Mitchell with 6:29 left in the game. Mitchell had the honor of scoring the rst touchdown on John Rutledge Field. e extra point was missed. Jaremi Olmo intercepted on the Buccaneers next oensive series and returned the pick for a touchdown that was called back for a block in the back penalty. But the interception set up Bronsons next score. Eagle quarterback Jason Ranalli threw a 32-yard touchdown strike to Jackson who trotted into the end zone untouched. e extra point was missed. e Eagles scored again late in the rst quarter after driving from the Buccaneers 37 on a short yardage Mitchell run. Jackson ran for the two-point conversion, leaving the score 20-0 with 11:45 left in the second quarter. Bronsons aggressive defense ended the next oensive series for Branford when Brandon Partain recovered a fumble at the Bronson 46. e Eagles drove quickly into Branford territory before Jackson broke two tackles and stretched his arm over the goal line for a touchdown. e two-point conversion failed, leaving the score 26-0 with 6:30 left in the half. Bronsons merciless defense ended the Branford drive that followed when Ryan Roberts intercepted a pass and returned it 70 yards for a touchdown. e two-point conversion pass from Jason Ranalli to Gavin omas left the score 34-0 with 5:31 left in the half. Branford got on the scoreboard late in the second quarter with a 65-yard drive that led to a running touchdown and an extra point. Bronson quickly returned the favor. e Eagles scored on a 55-yard run by Jackson. He broke two tackles and cut back against the pursuit to outdistance Branford defenders. e twopoint conversion pass failed, leaving the score 40-7 at the half. e Eagles drove 80 yards on their rst oensive series of the third quarter to score on a 4-yard blast up the middle by Mitchell. e two-point conversion failed, leaving the score 46-7. Branford answered with a 60-yard pass for a touchdown. Bronson Mows Down Branford 52-14; Rutledge Field Dedicated Montrez Jackson uses his speed to cut through an opening. Photo by Terry Witt.

All proceeds will go to further the church building fund. ose Mississippi delta stinger birds were as black and ominous as the moonless night, and pelting me like rain. e incessant biting and buzzing caused me to swat myself in the head with my own ashlight. Dern Skeeters, Dad said, Half a can of bug spray aint done nothing but get em drunk. I could tell my little brother Heath was waging a similar battle by the way his ashlight beam stabbed erratically into the thick night. I was seriously second guessing Dads plan by the time we slid that Jon boat down the slippery bank into the bayous murky water. You got your shells boy? dad asked pushing us o. I nodded and broke the breech on my little .410 shotgun and plugged one in. Look-a-there, he warned, shining his light across the thick swamp ahead. Several sets of eyes reected back as they slithered across the black water, or hung from the low branches. I gulped. Heaths face seemed frozen in a state of panic. en a low belch erupted from down the bank, slowly dissipating behind the unceasing chorus of crickets. eres old Kermit, dad grinned. Ive been after that big boy all year. As we skimmed further down the bayou I took aim and blasted a steely-eyed water snake swimming near the boat. e spray shot up high into the air and rained on us all. e snake barrel rolled, opped, and sunk to the muddy bottom. Boy, dont be wasting your shells, Dad barked. Save em for the ones trying to get in the boat. It was at that point I think little Heath may have gone into shock. Dad scanned the bank until he nally came across the big green croaker he was after. He laid his barbed poking pole across his lap and paddled toward it quietly. I expected the big old frog to leap away, but he sat, fascinated by our lights. en, from out of nowhere, a huge black water moccasin slithered over, coiling up right in front of Kermit. I cant get a shot. Turn back, I whispered, Dad turn back He just kept paddling. As we drew closer that fat frogs muscles tensed. He was about to leap! Dad noticed it and sprung to action. I guess the thought of letting old Kermit get away again was too much for him. In an instant he had leaned out over that hissing snake and thrust his spear into his fat little buddy with amazing precision. e snake immediately retaliated, lashing out with those long sharp fangs. Digging in, that old serpent spun wildly injecting his full load of venom. I screamed. Oh the horror of it all!!! Hush boy, Dad yelled. e snake had only latched on to his gigging stick. Dad shook him o, whacked him with the paddle, and slapped his prize frog Popsicle in poor little Heaths quivering lap. But anywayI reckon this old world can seem about as dark and violent as that old bayou many times. It almost makes you want to run and hide under a pew somewhere. Of course, as Christians we cant. God cares too deeply about those froggy souls out there in the muck and mire that need hauling into the boat. Somebody has to take His light out into the darkness so that He can pluck them out. ( But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people; that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9 KJV) Sometimes the mere contemplation of meandering outside my comfort zone for the cause of Christ triggers the enemy to pelt my mind with such a barrage of tormenting thoughts concerning my own inadequacies that I inevitably want to whack myself in the head with a ashlight. at nasty serpent just seems to be daring me to try. Well let him hiss. Hes just a liar. Besides, we dont come in our own strength? God has given us the tools and the armor we need to work way beyond his reach. God will help us shake o that old serpent, whack him in the head, and leave out of there with the prize. Its time we Christians began to think outside the boat! God may not need us all to walk on water, but He does need a Church at least willing to lean out every now and then. It always helps me to remember how Jesus sent people back into the darkness to rescue me. I say lets stop second guessing Dads plan.

Levy County Prevention Coalition Awarded Plum Creek Foundation GrantGrant to be used for Coalitions Above e Inuence Programe Levy County Prevention Coalition, a nonprot dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles, recently received a $4,940 grant from the Plum Creek Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Plum Creek Timber Company. is grant will support the Coalition by assisting with the purchase of equipment and supplies for the organizations Above the Inuence (ATI) Program. e ATI program encourages youth to express their desire to live above the inuence of drugs and will be implemented during the 20142015 school year at Bronson Middle/High School, Chieand Middle/High School and Williston High School. e Coalition envisions the ATI program as an outlet for students to organize fun, drugfree events for their peers. We really hope this will be an opportunity for students to plan after-school activities, particularly on Friday or Saturday nights, that provide safe and drug-free environments, while also building school and community pride, said Jonathan Lewis, chief operating ocer for the Coalition. Lewis is preparing to launch Friday Night Done Right, a regional environmental strategy that the Coalition is participating in through a partnership with the Community Coalition Alliance, a regional alliance of prevention coalitions. Coalition board chairman Crystal Seley is particularly excited about the Friday Night Done Right strategy, our kids need something safe and fun to do on the weekends and we plan to help them out, Seley said. Building strong communities begins with building healthy communities, and were proud to help the Levy County Prevention Coalition do that through this program, said Greg Galpin, senior manager of planning for Plum Creek. We enjoy being able to fund community projects, particularly ones that benet our youth. e Levy County Prevention Coalition, in partnership with CDS Family & Behavioral Health Services, Inc. provides the Too Good for Drugs programs at Bronson Elementary, Chieand Elementary and Williston Elementary schools, as well as Project Success at Williston Middle School. ese programs collectively serve approximately 1,450 students per year. Elementary School students receiving the Too Good for Drugs Curriculum attend the class for 45 minutes at least once every 5 days. In addition, the Coalition also implements multiple other environmental strategies through state and federal grant funding to include Safe Festival Training, Responsible Merchant/Vendor Training and Prescription Drug Drop Os. Since 2011 the Coalition and its partners have increased prevention funding in Levy County by 300% up from $195,000 a year in 2011 to $595,000 in 2014. Increases in funding are the catalyst in pushing our initiatives forward; should we continue and as we continue this trend, we stay committed to invest every cent into the future of our Levy County youth, said Jennifer Radder, market leader for Capital City Bank and board member of the Coalition. Plum Creek Timber Company, one of the largest landowners in the Country and Levy County, manages 6.8 million acres in 19 states and focuses on proper land management, environmental stewardship and economic development.
