First Baptist Church of Bronson purchased the former NAPA property and hired Jimmie Jerrels Hauling and Grading to demolish the building and remove the materials from the site. Jerrels said he remembers the building in the 1960s when he returned from the military. It was Wrights Mini Mart back then. By Terry WittSenior Staff Writere new sound system in the Levy County Commission meeting room is up and running with its ceiling speakers, microphones for all ve commissioners and two 60-inch televisions for displaying information to the board and visitors. It was operating during the nal yearend commission meeting on Sept. 30. Clerk of Circuit Court Danny Shipp is paying for the improvements out of money he anticipates being left over in his budget at the end of the scal year. He was the elected ocial who selected the sound system and is refurbishing the room. Electronics World sold the system to Shipp and installed it. e system was studied by the countys information technology Director Jose Esteves and technology specialist Scott Deberry before the purchase was made. Deberry said he and Esteves along with Clerk Chandra Jordan listened to recent recordings of commission meetings using the old equipment. eres obviously a need, Deberry said. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners have adopted a total budget of $65.2 million for the 2015 year, a decrease of about $4.3 million in spending from the previous year, and with a slight reduction in the property tax millage. Commissioners approved an 8.2741 roll back millage rate, a decrease from the previous years 8.3307 mills. e roll back rate is supposed to generate the same revenue as the previous year, but because of higher property values the county commission expects to receive an additional $70,000 in the 2015 budget. e county anticipates collecting $13,090,088 in total property tax revenue for the new budget. Property tax revenue is deposited in the general operating fund, which totals $27.3 million. e general operating fund is part of the overall county commission budget. County Budget Clerk Sheila Rees said the general operating fund provides revenue for the budgets of the county commission, sheris oce, property appraiser, clerk, tax collector and elections supervisor. e Emergency Medical Service budget for 2015 is By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town Council members approved a 4 percent pay raise for employees Monday as part a lean $4.2 million budget for 2015. ey also adopted a property tax millage rate of 3.8781. e tax rate will generate about the same amount of revenue as last year. e budget is larger than previous years due to a $2.9 million sewer expansion project that is being funded with a grant and low interest loan through the United States Department of Agriculture. Water and sewer rates will be raised later this year to pay for the expansion of the sewer system. No date has been set for those discussions. Brettel expects to be ready for council discussion on the rates by early November. Councilman Beatrice Roberts pushed to keep property tax rates low because she said water and sewer rates would be raised later in the year. She didnt want By Terry Witt Senior Sta Writer Levy County Commissioners used their new sound system for the rst time at a meeting Tuesday and everything went o without a hitch despite a couple of jokes. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell, who positioned himself best behind his microphone to have his voice heard by the audience, joked with commissioners that they could hit the mute button and go o the record. ere were no interruptions. Microphones and sound levels were controlled by a clerk seated in the meeting room at a laptop. All four commissioners in attendance knew how the system worked. Commissioner Chad Johnson was absent. e meeting room was rearranged for the last meeting of the year. Clerk of Courts Danny Shipp removed the long table that sta sat behind and gave them padded chairs at the back of the room. e new arrangement created more space for seating. In the near future he plans to hire a contractor to remove cabinets on the east side of the room as a space-saving measure. e commissioners table will be replaced with a new table and the platform on which it rests will get a makeover. Commissioners voices could be heard clearly throughout the room. Eight ceiling speakers broadcast the sound evenly in every part of the room. Clerk Chanda Jordan sat at a laptop and could adjust the sound level of microphones if there were problems with individual board members being heard. e nal meeting of the year was primarily to pay bills as the county moves into the new Big November Election Ballot Provides a Little of EverythingBy Terry WittSenior Staff Writere Nov. 4 general election ballot in Levy County oers a full menu of choices on a variety of subjects that should whet the appetite of most voters. Levy voters will vote for three proposed state constitutional amendments including one for medical marijuana, and will decide whether to grant the Levy County Commission power to issue property tax exemptions to new business and expansions of existing businesses for job creation. ey will also vote for candidates in the District 2 and 4 county commission races, for governor and lieutenant governor, attorney general, chief nancial ocer, commissioner of agriculture and for ve District Court of Appeal judges. Voters from every corner of the political spectrum can cast ballots this election in every race, unlike the Aug. 26 primary when voters were restricted to voting for candidates in their political party.e Candidatese District 2 county commission candidates are Rock Meeks, a Republican and Robert Studstill, a No Party Aliation candidate. e District 4 county commission candidates are Republican Lilly Rooks and Democrat Jamie Grin. In the District 3 congressional race, incumbent Republican Ted Attendance Urged for CK Bridge MeetingBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterCounty Commission Chairman Ryan Bell on Tuesday announced a public meeting in Cedar Key with the Florida Department of Transportation to discuss the replacement and repair of three of the citys bridges. County Coordinator Freddie Moody said the state notied the county of the meeting Monday. Moody brought the Cedar Key meeting to commissioners as a non-agenda item at the nal county budget meeting of the year. e meeting will take place from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Oct. 27 at the Cedar Key Community Center. Bell encouraged the public to attend this meeting to give DOT input on the bridge projects. If anyone is interested, its really important to go to that meeting, Bell said. e Dock Street Bridge and both airport road bridges are scheduled for construction.

At 11:40 p.m. 23-year-old Oscar Alfredo Jeronimo of Williston was riding south on US 41 on his Genesis V2100 bicycle in the center of the southbound lane. At the same time 53-year-old Robert Carl Kinsey of Morriston was driving south on US 41 in a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee with passenger Charles Brooks Kinsey, 65, in the vehicle with him. Also driving south on US 41 were 36-year-old John Paul Linnell of Ocala in a 2001 Hyundai Elantra and Samuel Antonio White, 48, of Tampa, in a 2015 Volkswagen Beetle. According to FHP, Kinsey in the Jeep was going about 50-55 mph and failed to see Jeronimo on his bicycle in the center of the road and struck Jeronimo with the Jeep. Jeronimo was propelled onto the hood and windshield of the Jeep and then to the ground coming to rest within the southbound lane of US 41. e Jeep came to a stop on the west shoulder facing south. In the meantime, the Hyundai driven by Linnel saw the brake lights of the Jeep on as he approached the collision area and steered left when he saw Jeronimo in the lane. As the Hyundai steered away from Jeronimo he saw the bicycle and veered even more left into the northbound lane to avoid the bicycle just striking the bicycle and coming to a controlled stop on the west shoulder. e Volkswagen also saw all the brake lights and steered left to avoid Jeronimo in the roadway with his left front bumper striking the bicycle but coming to a controlled stop on the west shoulder. Jeronimo was pronounced dead on the scene by Levy County EMS. e bicycle and the Jeep were removed by Bronson Lube Towing. Jeronimo was not wearing a helmet and blood alcohol tests are pending. All the vehicle drivers and the passenger were wearing seatbelts and were not injured. rfrfntbbffKeep your business moving with our 4x4 Equipment Loan*: New or Used Equipment Financing Available $25,000 Minimum Loan Four-Year Term with Fixed Rates as low as 4% APR^ Quick Approval Process Call your Capital City Banker to apply today. 4 area locations to serve you. | 493.2571 www.ccbg.com FINANCING FOR NEW & USED TRUCKING EQUIPMENT Wesley, John, Mike and Debbie Arrests Made in Williston Store RobberyOn Sept. 20 the La Esperanza store in Williston reported an armed robbery to the Williston Police Department. e proprietor was closing for the day and three armed men wearing masks entered the story and demanded money. e proprietor complied and the culprits ed.

In the race for chief nancial ocer Republican Je Atwater is being challenged by William Will Rankin, a Democrat. Republican Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam is being challenged by Democrat addeus ad Hamilton. Voters will be asked whether they want to retain District Court of Appeal Judges Robert T. Benton, Joseph Lewis, Jr., Scott Makar, Tim Osterhaus and Clay Roberts.e AmendmentsMedical Marijuana Amendment 2 on the ballot would make marijuana legal in Florida for individuals with debilitating diseases as determined by licensed Florida physicians. It would allow caregivers to assist patients with using marijuana and would empower the Florida Department of Health to register and regulate centers that produce and distribute marijuana for medical purposes. e Department of Health would issue identication cards to patients and caregivers. e amendment would not authorize violations of federal law or any non-medical use, possession or production of marijuana. A yes vote would authorize a medical doctor to prescribe marijuana as a medicine and would not require any insurance company or government agency to cover or reimburse the cost of such a prescription nor would it authorize patients to grow their own supply. Proponents say marijuana provides safe and eective therapy for conditions such as nausea, appetite loss, muscle spasms and chronic pain resulting from a number of diseases. ey claim it would provide an alternative to pill mills and would reduce the number of fatalities related to pain medication such as oxycodone, hydrocodone and morphine. Advocates also say the provision for other conditions is important because medical decisions should be made by doctors and their patients, not lawyers, politicians or bureaucrats. Opponents argue the law is too broad and would allow almost anyone to purchase marijuana. ey point to the states history with pill mills as evidence there would be no shortage of doctors to provide approval for questionable conditions. Others warn of the social costs of increased marijuana use and say it will be expensive to regulate and provide added law enforcement resources. Opponents also say that studies from Colorado where marijuana was decriminalized show signicant amounts of marijuana will be diverted to recreational use.Amendment 1Purchasing Conservation and Recreation Lands A yes vote for Amendment 1 would mandate that 33 percent of the states documentary stamp tax revenues be directed to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund for a number of environmental programs. e trust fund would be used to acquire, restore, improve and management conservation lands including wetlands and forest, sh and wildlife habitat, lands protecting water resources including the Everglades. It would also protect the water quality of lakes, rivers and streams; beaches and shores, outdoor recreational lands; working farms and ranches, historic or geologic sites. A no vote means the Florida Legislature would continue to make funding decisions on environmental programs. Supporters including Allison DeFoor, chair of the vote yes campaign, said Amendment 1 would enhance sources of drinking water, manage sh and wildlife habitats, add and restore lands, protect beaches and shores and maintain state and local parks without new taxes. Supporters point out that the environment is critical to Floridas economy. Opponents warn against placing unchangeable budget decisions in the constitution and say it could reduce funding for other programs funded by documentary stamp taxes, such as transportation and aordable housing. Senate President Dan Gaetz contends the amendment would shift too much land to state control.Amendment 3Filling Oces of Certain Judges Amendment 3 would allow a sitting governor to ll prospective vacancies on the Florida Supreme Court or district courts of appeal before the end of the term for those judges or justices who are resigning, retiring or have failed to be retained by the voters. Currently, three Supreme Court justices are legally required to retire at the end of their term in January 2019. Under this amendment, the individual elected governor in November of 2014 would be required to appoint three new Supreme Court justices to begin their terms in 2019, regardless of who wins the 2018 governors race. Opponents say this is a political move by the Republican majority Legislature to ensure Gov. Scott, if re-elected, would be able to appoint three new justices, which would have a substantial impact in the political makeup of the court. Others say that regardless of the political implications, it is more appropriate for the incoming governor elected in 2018 to appoint justices who will serve during that governors term. Proponents say the amendment is needed to avoid a constitutional crisis because current law is unclear as to whether the outgoing or incoming governor has the responsibility to appoint three new Supreme Court Justices on Jan. 8, 2019, when three justices are slated to retire on the same day the new governor is sworn in. ey claim that politics is not involved because the states next governor has yet to be elected, and some also say Amendment 3 may reduce the length of judicial vacancies. Much of the analysis for the three proposed constitutional amendments used in this story was taken from the Florida TaxWatch Voter Guide.Big November Election Ballot Provides a Little of Everything continued from page 1ACounty Sound System Ready for Commissioners continued from page 1A Commissioners have used microphones for years that record their voices, sometimes poorly, but dont broadcast their voices. People seated at the back of the room often strain to hear commissioners. Each commissioner will have his own microphone with a exible neck. Deberry said it will be important for commissioners to speak directly into the microphone to get the best results. e audience should hear much better. e audio recording will be much better, Deberry said. Its really just a nice professional system. e 60-inch television that the audience can see from their seats will display the agenda and other information. If the letters are too small, the font can be increased in size. A digital mixer attached to the wall of the meeting room can transfer information from laptops set up in the podium to both televisions and the ceiling speakers. Guests who make digital presentations will have their information displayed on both televisions. In the past the commission used an old projection screen that had to be unfolded and moved into place manually. e projection screen has been retired. Shipp said he also intends to hire a company to rebuild the commissioners table, resurface the platform on which the table stands and remove the empty cabinets on the east side of the room to make create more space. People who speak from the audience will be asked to use a handheld microphone to ensure their voices are recorded. Shipp has purchased four portable microphones for that purpose. County sta will also use the microphones if they dont step up to the podium to speak. e podium has a microphone identical to those being used by commissioners. e old system was useless from the start. Shipp said the old system never worked in all the years he has served as clerk. Ive been here since 2001 and I have not been able to hear. e system has not worked since we got it. ey (commissioners) had me call people in to repair it, and it still didnt work, Shipp said. Shipp said the county experimented at one time with lapel microphones, but he recalls former County Commissioner Sammy Yearty and others removing the microphones from their lapels. Deberry said the new system is intended for the purpose of recording meetings and broadcasting the voices of commissioners, their sta and members of the public throughout the meeting room. He said it could be adapted with additional equipment to connect to the countys Emergency Operations Center more than a mile away for display of information relating to meetings, storms, etc. More equipment would have to be added to the digital mixer. It really wasnt the intent of the system, Deberry said. e commission meeting room is already capable of serving as a mini-courtroom with the new system. Deputies arent excited about the prospect of using the room for criminal trials because of security issues. Walking inmates and witnesses down the main hallways to reach the room isnt a perfect security arrangement. Despite that fact, the room is electronically capable of serving as a minicourtroom.Microphones have been embedded in the commission table. The voices of commissioners will be broadcast through speakers in the ceiling to enable visitors to hear the board. A new table is being constructed. Photo by Terry Witt. This laptop computer will be used to control sound levels in the commission meeting room. Clerk Chanda Jordan can adjust sound levels as needed to ensure visitors hear what commissioners are saying.

Old NAPA Building in Bronson Demolished for Church Parking continued from page 1A It was one of the rst mini markets here, Jerrels said. e building that once housed the vehicle repair bays for NAPA will remain standing. First Baptist Church is using the building for storage. ere has been little parking available since the new church was constructed. Most of the church members either parked on the street or on a small triangular piece of land adjoining the church oce on U.S. 27A. e changes to the former NAPA property include removing a row of trees on the back side of the building and clearing vegetation from the chain-link fence on the east side of the property. Jerrels said part of the roof of the old building was rotted, but the steel reinforced concrete walls and 6-inch slab were as strong as ever. He transported the concrete to Florida Concrete and Recycling, in Archer. e company breaks down the concrete into stones of various sizes and removes the rebar with magnets. When the trees are removed at the back of the property, the parking will extend to the parsonage behind the former NAPA property, giving the church its rst parking lot since the new church was constructed. Jerrels was not sure if the church would pave the new parking lot or dump rock on the area for parking. ere was parking around the old church, much of it on the lawn and street. But the new church was built a block down the street and had no parking lot close by. budget year with a $65.2 million spending plan. e new budget year began on Wednesday. Department heads were allowed to change their budget numbers for 2015 budget at this nal meeting. Commissioners allowed the Department of Public Safety to add $39,123 to the 2013-14 Emergency Medical Services budget to bring the total to $5,800,255. e re control budget was increased to $2,301.769, an increase of $5,990. e EMS budget next year will increase to $5,964,008 and re control will increase to $2,524,049. e 201415 budget began on Oct. 1. Connie Conley of Levy County Transit won approval to le a grant for a Shirley Conroy Rural Capital Assistance Grant with the Florida Commission for Transportation Disadvantaged for $79,490 stretcher equipped transit bus.Commissioner Voices Heard in Final Budget Hearing continued from page 1A

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923A Is for Agitation: Whats Really Going on in Jeerson County Schools Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateRandom thoughts on the passing scene: What a non-judgmental society amounts to is that common decency is optional -which means that decency is likely to become less common. e biggest issue in this falls election is whether the Obama administration will end when Barack Obama leaves the White House or whether it will continue on, by appointing federal judges with lifetime appointments who share President Obamas contempt for the Constitution. Whether such judges will be conrmed by the Senate depends on whether the Senate continues to be controlled by Democratic Majority Leader Harry Reid. (Editors Note: VOTE) Why in the world would any sane American go to North Korea and put themselves at the mercy of a crackpot dictator? Since Illinois enacted a law permitting more people to carry concealed rearms, more than 65,000 people got permits to do so. Rates of robbery, burglary and motor vehicle thefts have dropped signicantly, and the murder rate has fallen to a level not seen in more than half a century. If only the gun control fanatics would pay some attention to facts, a lot of lives could be saved. If you took all the mumbo-jumbo out of our educational institutions, how much would be left? Students could nish their education years earlier and end up knowing a lot more than they know now. Why are Americans -and the Western world in general -falling all over ourselves stiing our own self-expression to appease people who chose to immigrate here, and are now demanding the suppression of anything they dont like, such as public expressions of Christianity or displays of the American ag? Someone should write a history of political rhetoric, if only to put us on our guard against being deceived into disasters. e First World War, for example, was said to be a war to make the world safe for democracy. What it actually led to was the replacement of despotic dynasties by totalitarian dictatorships that were far worse, including far more murderous. Professor Sterling Brown remains as much a hero to me in my old age as he was when I was a freshman at Howard University. He wrote bitterly eloquent attacks on racism -and yet, when I was preparing to go o to Harvard, he said to me, Dont come back here and tell me you didnt make it cause white folks were mean. e fatal weakness of most clever people is that they dont know when to stop being clever. e past cleverness of President Obama is nally starting to catch up with him. Why Republicans would bring up the subject of immigration during an election year is beyond me. Yet Speaker of the House of Representatives John Boehner seems drawn to the subject like a moth to a ame. Who says the Obama administration is not transparent? ey are constantly telling our enemies overseas when it will pull out our troops and where we will not put boots on the ground. Heartening as it has been to see Derek Jeter get farewell honors during his last season, as with Mariano Rivera last season, it is also a melancholy thought that we may not see their like again -in their personal dignity and class, as well as their performance on the eld. ey are throwbacks to an earlier time, in a sports world of spoiled brat showos today. I must have heard the word diversity proclaimed in ringing tones as a great benet to society at least a thousand times -and probably closer to a million -without even once hearing a speck of evidence provided, or even suggested as a way to test whether that is true or false. Attorney General Eric Holder has picked the perfect time to resign, in terms of his own self-interest. He will have two years in which to cash in with lucrative fees on the lecture circuit and to make a big-bucks book deal. If he waited until the end of the Obama administration, a former Attorney General would be eclipsed in both respects by a former President of the United States, thereby reducing the demand for Holder. With the momentous consequences of control of the Senate at stake in this falls election, anyone who risks the outcome by running as a third party candidate should not only be voted against this year but remembered for such irresponsibility in future years. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators Syndicateeres a big battle brewing in the Jeerson County, Colorado, school system. e manufactured controversy over a proposed curriculum review is generating national headlines. But the ght is not about what misguided students and biased reporters say its about. Censorship is a red herring. e real issue is union control. Heres the deal: Public school teachers in this Denver-area district walked out of their classrooms this week to protest the implementation of performance-based pay. e JeCo school board approved the new compensation system last week, which rewards the most highly eective teachers with 4.2 percent raises, eective teachers with 2.4 raises and inferior teachers with nothing. Only 2 percent of teachers received no pay raises. One fact the grievance-mongering teachers conveniently left out of their politicized pep talks to student sympathizers: e board gave bonuses to 450 teachers who would have otherwise received no raises under the unions arbitrary step scale. e old system didnt take performance into any consideration at all. Despite the hefty rewards for teacher competence and excellence, disgruntled union leaders called for a strike last Friday (or as they prefer to whitewash it, a sickout). e Big Labor avengers succeeded in shutting down two schools -and enlisting students to protest with them. But the optics of robbing kids of valuable educational time to protest an $18.2 million salary compensation package did not play well with taxpayers. Enter the censorship fakeout. At the same board meeting where the new pay system was approved, elected school board members heard a proposal to form a curriculum review committee. Under the state constitution, elected local school boards are responsible for instructional and curriculum matters. Its their duty. e proposal called for the creation of a new, nine-member panel to review curricular choices for conformity to JeCo academic standards, accuracy and omissions, and to inform the board of any objectionable materials. e panels rst review items would be the elementary health curriculum and the A.P. U.S. History (APUSH) curriculum, which has undergone a radical revamp over the past few years. e chief architect of the APUSH revisions is David Coleman, a progressive ideologue who is also one of the prime movers and shakers behind the Common Core standards scheme. Objections to the shoddy, intrusive, costly, top-down, backroom-designed Common Core agenda cross party lines. Rank-and-le teachers across the country have joined a diverse anti-Common Core coalition of parents, administrators, scholars, grassroots activists, privacy advocates and anti-cronyism watchdogs. e JeCo school board takes its deliberative role seriously. e proposal is the opposite of censorship. e debate over history standards is part of a wider battle between leftleaning militant teachers unions, who explicitly see their primary role as Saul Alinsky-trained political agitators, and those who want to restore academic excellence, rigor and ideological balance in the schools. While every liberal -ism has been incorporated into the school day -from environmentalism and collectivism to social justice activism to mandatory volunteerism, feminism and transgenderism -JeCo school board members are now being mocked for simply proposing that citizenship, individualism and patriotism have a fundamental place at the schoolteachers table. Somehow, this perfectly reasonable proposal morphed into JeCo wants to remove slavery from the history curriculum! Next thing you know, students were walking out of class two days in a row this week with We (Heart) Our Teachers signs. And the liberal Denver Post was running propaganda stories on Twitter mockery of the school board. It upsets me greatly to see children being used as pawns and missing educational time, school board president Ken Witt told me. And were not just going to rubber-stamp the top-down APUSH changes, he says. But the bigger picture, Witt points out, is that the districts union contract expires in August. It will be entirely redrafted. e agitators ultimate goal is to create turmoil and discredit board before those negotiations. And they are trying to do so by any means necessary -including misleading kids, spreading falsehoods in the classroom and instigating walkouts through studentmanaged organizing websites. e parting words of former top National Education Association lawyer Bob Chanin a few years ago in explaining the unions main agenda say it all. After calling conservative opponents bastards, he said: is is not to say that the concern of NEA and its aliates with closing achievement gaps, reducing dropout rates, improving teacher quality and the like are unimportant or inappropriate. To the contrary -these are the goals that guide the work we do. But they need not and must not be achieved at the expense of due process, employee rights and collective bargaining. at simply is too high a price to pay. Listen up, class. For public employee union leaders, its not really about the children or academic excellence or curricular freedom. Its about their own political self-preservation. Always.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Letter to the EditorRandom Thoughts By Dr. Paul KengorIve said it before, and Im hardly alone. Many have observed it. Liberals revere tolerance. ey practically worship it. Its like a religion to them. Well, now comes a study that supports the point. A new survey by Pew Research nds that when it comes to teaching children, liberals place a far higher priority on teaching tolerance than teaching religion. at liberals do this in schools is abundantly clear, but they apparently do it in their homes as well. In this, Pew nds, liberals are the opposite of conservatives. e starkest ideological dierences [between liberals and conservatives] are over the importance of teaching religious faith, reports Pew. Among those who have consistently conservative attitudes across a range of political values, 81 percent think it is especially important for children to be taught religious faith. Among those with consistently liberal views, just 26 percent rate the teaching of religious faith as especially important, and only 11 percent regard it as among the most important child-rearing qualities. Moreover, nds the survey, a staggering 88 percent of consistently liberal Americans list The Liberal Religion of Tolerance continued to page 5A

Yoho (R-FL), along with others, sent a letter recently to Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) Administrator Kevin Shea. e letter is asking the agency to halt the implementation of the their proposed rule from December 2013 allowing for the importation of fresh and frozen beef from regions in Brazil until an audit conducted by the Government Accountability Oce of the methodology of the site visits takes place. Historically, Brazil has had issues with the highly contagious and most economically damaging livestock viruses in the world, Foot-and-Mouth Disease, said Yoho, who is also a large animal veterinarian. e United States has been free from FMD since 1929 and reintroduction of the disease would pose a signicant threat to the health and well-being of our national livestock herds. e Food Safety Inspection Service audit released in April found substantial aws related to Brazils food safety regulation requirements and the last documented case of FMD in Brazil was in 2006. Without certainty that Brazil will comply with all health regulations to mitigate the risk of FMD, importation of beef from these regions carries a signicant risk. While we are staunch advocates for open markets and free trade, we will not ignore the fact that unfettered access of these products has the potential to cause signicant harm to our domestic food supply, the letter states. Until a timely and independent study can be conducted on the methodology and management controls of the APHIS site visits to the exporting country to verify the animal health data, we shall not abide risking our nations food supply, health, and economy. Also signed on to the letter are Reps. Lucas (R-Okla.), chair of the House Agriculture Committee; Sessions (R-Texas), chair of the House Rules Committee; Crawford(RArk.); Costa (DCali.); and Schrader(D-Ore.). Congressman Ted Yoho serves on the Foreign Aairs and Agriculture Committees. He represents North Floridas 3rd Congressional District tolerance as their most important value in teaching their children. While this data is signicant, its also limited. It depends rst and foremost on how one denes tolerance, and especially how liberals professing tolerance dene tolerance. I believe, in general, that liberals are not actually tolerant. Liberals tolerate only what they what want to tolerate. ey tolerate things they agree withwhich, of course, isnt tolerance. Tolerance is about accepting the often-dicult dierences between you and someone you strongly disagree with, and respecting that persons right to an opposing point of view. Obviously, thats not liberalism. is could be demonstrated multiple ways, but consider two salient examples pervasive in daily headlines: liberals behavior regarding same-sex marriage and abortion. Liberals are relentless in denouncing, demonizing, boycotting, attacking, picketing, prosecuting, suing, ning, and even threatening to jail people who disagree with them on same-sex marriage. If your family owns a barn in New York (or elsewhere) and declines to rent it to a gay couple for a wedding ceremony, because such an arrangement violates your religious beliefs and freedom, liberals will ne you $13,000. If youre Elaine Photography in New Mexico and beg not to photograph a same-sex wedding, liberals will sue you. If you are the Kleins in Oregon and plead not to make a cake for a same-sex ceremony, you will be picketed, hauled before state commissions, and have your livelihood ruined by liberals. If you are Jack Phillips, a baker in Colorado, or a orist in any number of states, who likewise prefers not to service same-sex events, you will be threatened with imprisonment. If you are the owner of Chick-l-A or other businesses, and you dare admit that youre against redening marriage because you believe your God says you cant, liberals literally will assert at your death that Jesus is going to send you to hell. I could go on and on with such examples: Mozilla, Craig James, the owner of Barilla pasta, the governor of Arizona, etc., etc., etc. Liberals refuse to tolerate those who refuse to redene marriage. As for abortion, liberals not only refuse to respect your opposition; they insist you pay for their abortions. From Hobby Lobby to the Little Sisters of the Poor, theyre making you pay. If you dont, you will be ned mightily. I could go on and on with other examples from other issues. Look at how liberals run the universities, the training grounds for their missionaries of diversity. e faculty at these colleges are 80-90 percent liberal, and conservatives are not only marginalized but often barred from speaking on campus or angrily protested by these self-professing champions of free speech and openmindedness. All of this tells us much about liberals, but it especially reveals the phoniness of their claims to tolerance. In truth, what liberals really practice is a selective tolerance. And when that selective tolerance doesnt extend to you and your viewpoint, they tell you that youre against tolerance, that youre against diversity, and that you hate. All of which brings me back to the Pew survey. I think it reveals something even deeper. Many liberals have left religion because it doesnt accord to their denition of what religion (or God) should be. eyve jettisoned Christianity because certain aspects dont accord to their worldview. eir Christianity is, at best, a kind of cafeteria Christianity, where they pick and choose the elements of the faith they like and discard those they dont. Its a selective Christianity. Liberals are instead embracing the faith of tolerance. But here, too, its a selective faith. And most ironic, this selective tolerance often excludes the religiousor at least the religious that liberals disagree with. --Dr. Paul Kengor is professor of political science and executive director of e Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College.

Wild hogs, which are not native to Florida, feed on roots, tubors and grubs by rooting with their broad snouts and can leave an area looking like a plowed eld. ey also prey on native wildlife, compete with native species for food and transmit diseases to other wildlife, livestock and humans. Additionally, hogs may facilitate the spread of exotic plant species by transporting seeds and/or providing germination sites through rooting. e District will use a three-phase hunting system to alleviate and decrease these impacts. e three phases are designed to encourage attendance and maximize the eectiveness of the event, said Will VanGelder, the Districts Land Management Supervisor. e District allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels. Damage from hogs is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. e rst two phases of hunts will have separate registration processes. Top producers from Phase 1 will be awarded free hunts for Phase 2; top producers from Phase 2 will be asked to participate in hog management activities for Phase 3. All hunts will adhere to the hog-dog format. No still hunts will be available. e program works Phase 1 Hunts Registration will occur 9 a.m. on Oct. 6, 2014. Includes six hunts that occur November through December 2014. Permits are transferable. Top two producers on each hunt will be awarded a non-transferable registration to the same hunt location in Phase 2, free of charge. Failure to follow rules or poor behavior issues will disqualify registrant for incentive consideration at the sole determination of District sta.

USDA Threatens Domestic Food Supply with Proposed Rule continued from page 1A $5,964,008. e biggest part of the EMS budget is the $3,025,813 in revenues generated by the EMS property assessment. e county also expects to collect $1,985,000 from ambulance patients. An additional $412,903 will come from the general operating fund for EMS. Several grants are part of the EMS budget. e countys re control budget is $2,524,049 for 2015. e special assessment for re will generate $1,950,000, but $193,145 of the re budget will come from the general operating fund. Federal grants were also awarded to Morriston, Fowlers Blu and Rosewood and those grants are part of the total re program budget. Levy Countys Department of Public Safety administers the EMS and re programs for the county commission. e commission transfers tax money out of its general operating fund to the EMS and re budgets to make up for what it doesnt collect from exempted properties. Heather Encinosa of Nabors, Giblin and Nickerson said case law says the county cannot raise the special assessments on property to make up for what isnt collected from exempted properties like church sanctuaries, public properties and non-prots. e money must come from a legal funding source to make up for what isnt collected from exempted properties. at source is taxes from the general operating budget. e county commission decides which properties are exempt from taxation. e fact that the EMS and re assessments dont pay the full cost of those departments comes as a surprise to some in county government who thought both departments were completely self-sucient as a result of increases in the property special assessments two years ago. Special assessments are not considered property taxes. But the truth is that a total $606,048 of property taxes will be spent in the 2015 budget for EMS and re to make up for what isnt collected from exempt properties.Bronson Council Adopts Lean Budget with Pay Raise continued from page 1Ataxpayers hit by utility and property tax increases in the same year. e subject of a pay raise was nearly forgotten until resident Elijah Williams reminded council members they had talked about giving Clerk Kelli Brettel a raise at a previous meeting he attended. Williams said she had done a lot for the town. Brettel had asked the council to raise her pay from $38,000 to $55,000. Councilman Berlon Weeks said the preliminary budget he voted for included employee pay raises, but the nal budget Brettel brought to the meeting Monday had no raises. Brettel said she trimmed as much as she could in the budget to make it balance and had removed the raise for her and other employees. She said state law requires the town to adopt a balanced budget. Council members committed themselves to a lean spending plan by adopting the so-called millage rollback, which ensured they would have no more property tax revenues to spend than what they had the year before. Councilman Bruce Greenlee hinted that Brettel should have some type of percentage raise due to her level of responsibilities, but then made a motion to focus on increases in pay and see what it would cost the town. Some council members felt the motion was too vague and suggested he attach a percentage to his motion for the raise. Greenlee made a motion for a 4 percent pay raise for all employees. It passed 5-0. Williams has been critical of the council for failing to act on matters that he said were discussed at length but never approved. He said the town has nally approved a sewer expansion, but he said too many issues were piling up on the table. Williams, a regular at council meetings, started the night by saying he was disappointed to hear through the grapevine that two council members didnt want him to attend council meetings. He added that he wished the council had a better racial mix to make decisions. e council currently has four black members. He said the lone white on the council, Berlon Weeks, will always be outvoted. Weeks said he just does his job and isnt bothered by the racial mix. Williams warned the council that he wasnt going away, saying Im going to be here again and again and again until the council gets more work done. e council allowed Williams to speak twice and gave no response to his comments. In other matters, Councilman Aaron Edmondson agreed to pay the outstanding health insurance balance of $2,632.79 for he and his wife. He said he would pay $2,000 this week and the balance before the end of the month. Brettel brought the matter to the council to obtain guidance on what to do. Edmondson admitted he was in arrears. He asked the town to send him a monthly bill in the future to ensure payments were made on time. In an unrelated matter, the council accepted a safety check for $695 from its property and casualty insurer, the Florida Municipal Insurance Trust (FMIT), which is operated through the Florida League of Cities. Council members also voted to continue being insured by FMIT because of the longstanding relationship and the benets, including the annual safety grant check and return on premiums. e return on premiums has totaled $26,000 over the past seven years. Andy Hanson of FMIT also pointed out the company recently appraised the value of the towns public building and property at no charge, a service worth about $5,000. e vote was 4-0 to approve FMIT for another year. ISU Jallad Insurance Services submitted a competitive quote. Weeks noted it had the best rates, but he could not vote on the issue because he had recused himself from voting earlier in the year due to a conict of interest. impacts might be to the city as construction progresses. Bell said anyone who takes a look under the two bridges leading to the airport will get a good understanding of why they have to be replaced. Its an eerie, eerie view, he said. He encouraged candidates for the county commission to attend the meeting. District 2 candidates Robert Studstill and Rock Meeks attended the commission meeting as did District 4 candidate Jamie Grin. His opponent, Lilly Rooks, was absent. Cedar Key lies in District 4. Bell noted there are only a couple of places to launch boats in Cedar Key. One of the airport bridges is an exit point. But he said if the dredge materials removed for the construction project cause sediment to drift into nearby clam leases it could cause problems. In other business, commissioners approved the renewal of a one year lease with Hudson Properties for the Guardian ad Litem program in Levy and Gilchrist County. e lease is for $700 per month. Levy County pays 70 percent, Gilchrist 30 percent. As a businessman, Bell said he has learned there is a time to lease and a time to buy. He said it may be time for the county to consider placing the Guardian ad Litem in a county-owned building rather than continuing to lease space. For long term situations, he said ownership is better than leasing. With a lease, he said the county is responsible for all the interior maintenance and repair of the air conditioning if it breaks down. ere are costs associated with ownership, too, he added, but he hopes the new commissioners taking oce in November will consider moving the Guardian ad Litem into a county-owned building or buying a building for the agency rather than continuing to spend money on rent. He said the commission at one point had discussed moving the Guardian ad Litem oce back to Bronson. In any case, Bell promised those in the audience he wasnt bowing completely out of government. He promised to be out there on the other side of the table after leaving oce. He was defeated by three votes in the Aug. 26 Republican primary by Lilly Rooks.Attendance Urged for CK Bridge Meeting continued from page 1A


By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterDivers from throughout the world visit Williston every year to experience the thrill of descending into a 100-foot deep lime rock cavern lled crystal blue water. e cavern is part of Blue Grotto Dive Resort about two miles west of Williston on NE 172nd St., a narrow tree-lined dirt road. But the resort has ties to distant locations in Europe. Kurt Huber, of German descent, was hired by property owner Dave Myler to renovate and manage Blue Grotto. Hubers company, Stellina LLC, has dive centers in Italy and Switzerland and operates one of the largest dive resorts in Switzerland. On the day a Journal reporert visited, Huber was conversing in German with a German couple who had come to dive in Blue Grotto. Blue Grotto is known around the world, Huber said. e deep cavern at Blue Grotto is the main attraction. Certied open water divers can dive there. e cavern is part of the massive Floridan Aquifer from which much of the states drinking water is drawn. Diving in the sunlit cavern is akin to swimming in a glass bowl lled with drinking water. Divers can follow a rope to the oor of the cavern and back again. At the 30-foot depth they can enter a diver breathing bell. ey can breathe air without the use of scuba gear before they descend farther into the cavern. e diving bell is optional. e more adventurous and experienced cavern divers can explore the dark realms of a blue water cave about 40 feet below the resort. e cavern divers also have a rope to guide them through the darkness of the cave system. ey use lights to illuminate their path. Its a very, very unique place, said Huber. Im still amazed when I dive. Huber has 8,000 hours of diving experience. He is a master diving instructor. Two diving instructors work for Huber at Blue Grotto. e resort has a classroom building for prediving instruction and a pool for diver training. It has added rental cabins and a bathhouse. Huber owns and manages the dive resort. Myler owns the property. My profession is diver certication and I am a teacher who instructs how to be dive instructor, Huber said. He has dived in 20 to 30 cave systems in North Central Florida. In the blue water cave beneath the resort, divers can follow a rope around the circular cave. ey cant swim beyond a certain point because the passageway at one end is too narrow to accommodate a human being in dive gear. Recently an experienced cave explorer swam to the end of the cave system. When he reached the narrow opening out of the cave he attempted to push his dive tank through the opening but found it too narrow. Huber said water owing through Blue Grotto starts in North Carolina and goes all the way to the Everglades in South Florida. A river of water comes near Blue Grotto and provides the water that oods the caves. He describes Blue Grotto as a karst hole rather than a sinkhole. Karst limestone features are often close to the surface. Manatee Springs State Park, a cave diving destination, and Fanning Springs are karst openings to produce spring runs. Blue Grotto looks more like a swimming pool surrounded by rock clis. What makes Blue Grotto unique is its depth. e popular cavern is shaped like a very large oblong potato. Sunlight is visible for much of the descent. e water remains a constant 72 degrees all year. Divers from the northern states enjoy coming to Williston during the winter months to dive in Blue Grotto. A man named Tom McQuarrie started Blue Grotto. He still lives in Williston, according to Huber. A photo posted on the Blue Grotto website shows McQuarrie diving Blue Grotto in 1962. Huber said the cavern was rst dived in 1959. It became a commercial destination in 1965. Cave diving isnt dangerous, Huber said, but that doesnt mean its free from hazards. If a cave collapses on a diver and blocks their escape, they often die. Visibility will drop to zero. If there is a way out, the diver probably wont nd it. Huber said he dives the resort once a month to inspect for loose rocks that might cause problems. He said they havent had any problems. ey are careful to check for diver certication. Divers are instructed how to dive safely. Diving is safe, he said.Willistons Blue Grotto Diving Resort is Known Worldwide By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronsons tenacious defense was the victim of a pair of trick plays Friday night that gave Cottondale a 34-28 win. Coach Cameron Porch said the team played extremely well, but the halfback passes by the Hornets decided a close game. We had them on the ropes. Weve got to put them away, Porch said. Bronson will play Bell at homecoming Friday. Game time is 7:30 p.m. at John Rutledge Field. e parade and Flight Night are ursday. e parade begins at 6 p.m. and the games open for Flight Night at 7 p.m. with festivities starting at 7:30 p.m. Fridays homecoming game is also the rst district game of the season. Porch said the team has had plenty of time to warm up. Winning district games is the way teams advance to the state playos. It starts next week, Porch said. In many ways Bronson played an outstanding game on both sides of the ball. e Eagles had six defensive stands. Tyler Sistrunk nished with 15 tackles and Garry Mitchell 12 tackles and a fumble recovery. Montrez Jackson had 10 tackles while Davis Dees had 7 tackles and a sack. Bobby Florence had 6 tackles and a pass defense and Justis Durden had 6 tackles and a fumble recovery. Mitchell led the oensive attack with 19 carries for 117 yards and two touchdowns. Jackson ran 6 times for 44 yards and a touchdown. Ryan Ranalli had two catches for 28 yards and Gavin omas had one touchdown for 8 yards. Patrick Van Patten had 1 catch. Bronson grabbed an early lead after Wayne Shipp recovered a fumble at the Cottondale 3 yard line. Mitchell rumbled over the middle for the touchdown. e extra point was no good with 7:42 left in the rst quarter. Cottondale drove from its own 38 to score on a 51-yard run. e two-point conversion was good with 5:46 left in the rst quarter. Bronson fumbled the kicko return. Cottondale scored on the next play from 35 yards out. It was Cottondales second score in less than a minute. e Eagles took the ball at their own 40 on the next possession and drove to the 26 of Cottondale. Jackson took it from there on touchdown run that featured his moves and his speed. Mitchell, who has speed and power, scored the two-point conversion, tying the score at 14-14 with 3:39 left in the rst quarter. Ranalli was intercepted at the 50-yard line with 2:06 left in the half. Cottondale scored on a pass with 3 seconds left in the half. e two-point conversion pass was knocked down by Jackson. Bronson took the lead again with 4:16 left in the third quarter after driving from its own 42 to score on a 10-yard pass to Gavin omas. Mitchell scored on the two-point conversion run, carrying tacklers with him into the end zone. Ranalli was intercepted at the Cottondale 37. e Hornets took advantage of the turnover and scored on a halfback pass to take a 28-22 lead with 11:39 left to play in the fourth quarter. Bronson recovered a Cottondale fumble at the Hornets 12yard line with 5:31 left in the game. e Eagles took advantage of the turnover and drove into the end zone two plays later on an 8-yard run by Mitchell, tying the score at 28-28 with 3:01 left to play. Cottondale won the game on a 45-yard halfback pass with 1:23 left in the game. e two-point conversion run failed, leaving the score 34-28. Bronson mounted its nal drive to no avail.Bronson Loses 34-28 to Cottondale on Trick PlaysBlue Grotto Oce Manager Susan Snow and Dive Resort owner Kurt Huber stand on an overlook above the spring.

Finding Yourself in Him Church Calendar What in the world, I declared as I peered out the front blinds. Kailey, get out there and tell your brother to get in the house. e wind was whipping through our little cove, swift dark clouds had begun to sputter, and Joshua, my ve year old, was out meandering around the cove barefooted like the village idiot. I just shook my head. As Kailey loped down the front yard, I watched Joshua turn, lean deantly into the wind, and set his jaw like int. She wont be able to turn him, I thought. Sure enough, she spoke her piece, stomped angrily, and hued back up the yard to the house to tattle. It was a well-traveled road. As Kailey began to dispose her sentiments regarding my role as parent she was soundly interrupted with a shrill squawking akin to that of the dying squall of a Mexican Seagull. We exchanged looks. e sound was coming up the front steps. It was Joshua. I didnt do it Kailey declared just as Joshua ung open the door. However, he bopped in with a big smile on his face, although still whooping like a rabid crane. Whats wrong with you boy, I said, Dont you know we got neighbors? I reached to cover his mouth, but he wrestled free. Daaaddy! He cried, looking at me like I was the idiot. He shook himself o, took a deep breath, and promptly went back to hollering. Josh! I lamented, What are you doing!!!? He leveled on me with a erce look of righteous indignation and said boldly, Im JOSHUA daddy. I walked round dem big walls a Jerco. Now Im shouting em down! I shouldve known. Since hes been old enough to tote a trumpet Ive been tooting his horn and telling him about the Joshua of the Bible, and hes mighty eager to live up to his moniker. For example, when we go on family walks he insists on being out front. Why? Hes Joshua, fearless leader of Gods people. He loves his name. I overheard him thanking God for it the other day. Many people dont put much stock in the importance of names. I can understand. One of the biggest fellows I ever met was called Tiny. Yet oftentimes, names do matter, especially for those searching for their identity in this world. How many people do your suppose have grown up identifying with, and limiting themselves to, the disparaging names they were called as children? Maybe youre one of them. If youve been called hurtful things, I encourage you to spend some quiet time with Jesus. Look deep into His eyes, and listen to what He calls you. ank goodness for Guidance Counselors, Moms, Dads, Pastors and Prophets, but their lengthiest opinions and loudest commands could never undo a single word whispered from the lips of the Lordthat is, if you will believe it. God has never been opposed to changing peoples names midstream eitherAbram to Abraham, Simon to Peter, Saul to Paul just to recall a few. He used these new titles to challenge these men to begin to see themselves dierently. ese new names raised the bar of their expectations and gave each of them a glimpse into what God saw regarding their character. Its only in the Lord we nd our true identity anyhow. Did you know He already has a special new name picked out for those who trust Him? ( To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. Revelations 2:17 KJV) But anyway Recently, after reading the Bible my girl Kailey decided she wants me to start calling her Esther. I dont know about that but apparently she sees herself as a beautiful young godly Queen who the Lord has raised up to help save His people. Cool! ats exactly the way I see her. I know its the way her heavenly Dad does. Guy Sheeldwww.butanyway.orgsinging by the Gibbs Family from Titusville Florida.
