Ranalli, son of Michelle VanHoose is involved in student government and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He has played football, baseball and basketball. His biggest accomplishment is being selected as a football captain. He plans to play college football after graduation.

She says she can lick her own elbow and loves to give awkward hugs. She has been vice president of her class for two years and president of her class for two years and is participating for the second year in dual enrollment classes at Santa Fe College. She plans to pursue a career in sports medicine. Other king and queen candidates were Ty Berkley By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterCentral Florida Electric Cooperative President Mike Campbell on Saturday said President Obamas environmental policy that aims to reduce carbon emissions in the atmosphere will be costly to electric customers. Campbell urged members attending the annual meeting in Chieand to contact the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to express their disapproval of the rule. is will drive up electric costs drastically, Campbell said. He said Seminole Electric Cooperative in Palatka has already invested $530 million in pollution control equipment to reduce emissions, but the new EPA policy would raise costs much higher. e C02 rule would require power companies to reduce carbon emissions 30 percent below 2005 levels within 16 years. EPA says non-carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and uorinated greenhouse gases are big contributors to climate change and electric generation is responsible for 38 percent of C02 emissions. In his message from the manager in the CFEC news publication, Campbell said a rate study earlier this year concluded that a 3.05 percent increase in electric rates was necessary. He said the By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterCounty Commissioner Mike Joyner Tuesday questioned why the county should spend money arranging for Value Adjustment Board hearings for property owners who le appeals every year but never show up to argue their case. Joyner, a member of the VAB board, didnt name the taxpayer he was referring to, but Property Appraiser Osborne Barker said he was talking about Winn Dixie, a company that appeals its property taxes every year but never makes an appearance before the VAB to argue its case. Its not right for the citizens of the county to have to pay and him not show up, Joyner said. Barker said Winn Dixie owns property in many counties and shows up for some hearings and not for others. Last year, Barker said Levy County rescheduled the hearing for Winn Dixie and the company still didnt show. e Levy County Value Adjustment Board will meet on Oct. 14 to consider Winn Dixies appeal of its property tax bill. It will meet on Nov. 3 to consider an appeal by Inglis resident William Kline. e main responsibility of VAB is to consider and listen to property owners who feel their values are too high and decide whether to make an adjustment. e VAB looks only at property values. It cannot change the millage rate set by taxing authorities like the county commission and school board. County Commissioner Ryan Bell is the chairman of the 2014 VAB.

Former Chieand Attorney David Hallman Passes AwayBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterFormer Chieand City Attorney David Hallman, 57, passed away Monday morning at Baptist Hospital in Jacksonville. e Fernandina Observer said Hallman was hospitalized in early September, and according to Circuit Judge Robert Foster was being treated for lymphoma. Hallman began his tenure as a Nassau County attorney in 2007. In July of 2014, Hallman was recognized for the second year in a row by Florida Trend Magazine as one of the states Legal Elites. e recognition was awarded after a condential vote from attorneys around the state, according to the Observer. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles Tuesday said the two Advanced Life Support non-transport trucks he operates are not state certied because the trucks are not used as 911 rst response vehicles for medical emergencies. Knowles was asked by resident Renate Cannon if a Levy County Journal story was correct in asserting that neither of the trucks was state certied. She also wanted to know why they were not state certied. Knowles said the state told him certication wasnt necessary. e trucks are used to carry spare parts and medical supplies for ambulances. e trucks also respond to re calls. Knowles said the fact that the trucks were purchased with a combination of reghting funds and emergency medical service funds played no part in his decision not to obtain state certication. e state said its not necessary, he said. Knowles said he has 11 ambulances that respond to 911 medical emergencies and he doesnt need an ALS non-transport trucks for that purpose. In previous interviews he said the two trucks function like a state certied ALS non-transport By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioners voted 4-1 Tuesday to reject Chieands request for partial county funding of a study that would determine whether ambulance service revenues could be jeopardized by stationing an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck in Chieand. It was the latest setback in Chieands eorts to establish a state certied ALS non-transport unit at Chieand Fire Rescue that could respond to emergency medical calls ahead of county ambulances and stabilize critically ill patients until an ambulance transported them to a Gainesville hospital. Commissioner Chad Johnson was the only board member willing to meet Chieand in the middle and fund half the cost of the $11,000 study. e other half of the studys cost would have been borne by Chieand.

City Police Chief Dennis Strow said the ordinance was aimed at being pro-active in case the medical marijuana constitutional amendment passes in the Nov. 4 statewide general election. Strow said it was basically putting it away from residential areas and assuring quality of life. Council President Jason Cason said he wished the ordinance could be stronger, but City Attorney Fred Koberlein said It has to be reasonable. Cason said he has never smoked marijuana. He gured it would lead to other bad things. But he says he knows others in Williston have smoked weed. eres been a lot of smoke thats gone up over this town over the years, Cason said.

Ronnie Lancaster, 38, was pronounced dead at the scene by Gilchrist County Emergency Medical Services. e Florida Highway Patrol said the tractor trailer was headed north on U.S. 129 at 2:06 p.m. when for unknown reasons the vehicle traveled across the highway and onto the west shoulder. e front of the truck hit the stand of trees. Chieand attorney Greg Beauchamp said he was shocked and saddened by Hallmans death. He was always a well prepared and a good attorney, he said. Former City Commissioner John Hart said Hallman had a keen intellect and always had the citys best interests at heart, being a local boy. I thought he was an asset to the community and I hate to see him leave, Hart said. Hart recalled a humorous story Hallman once told him about his days serving as legal counsel aboard an U.S. aircraft carrier. He said Hallman had put o reenlisting in the U.S. Navy. He lived in an apartment on the carrier with windows on three sides near the captains quarters and ight control. When he nally informed the captain that he wasnt reenlisting, Hallman told Hart his living arrangements changed dramatically. When he said he wasnt going to reenlist, he was shipped back to the rudder, Hart said. He went from living near ight control and the captains quarters to living by the rudder. Chieand City Manager Mary Ellzey said Hallman served as city attorney for the Chieand City Commission from Oct. 4, 1993 to June 24, 1999. He was a very professional, a very good attorney to work with, Ellzey said. Hallmans stepmother, Kay Hallman, said he was a very good stepson. He was good to me, she said.Former Chieand Attorney David Hallman Passes Away continued from page 1A
3A Co-Op Manager: Federal Rule Will Drastically Raise Power Costs continued from page 1A concluded that a 3.05 percent increase in electric rates was necessary. He said the cost of the rate hike for members using 1,000 kilowatt hours would be $4. Campbell also took issue with some elected ocials and the national media who claim the recession is over. He conceded in his managers message that unemployment is down, but growth is moving very slowly, while the costs of energy and materials goes up. Add to that the regulatory burden EPA intends to put on cooperatives and it is not easy to see a light at the end of the tunnel, he said. He backed his argument that the economy remains stagnant with gures from the tri-county area. From 1999 to 2008 more than 6,000 new electric services were added to CFEC. Since 2009, the cooperative has remained at about 36,000 total electric services, with a low of 35,981 and a high of 36,305. If you think in terms of a line graph, the line that was rising turned at for the last ve years. at means no growth, Campbell said. Campbell said cooperative members have learned how to conserve on power usage. e average monthly electric usage for 2013 was 916 kilowatt hours, the lowest usage level in 15 years. On a more somber note, Campbell noted that David Gore, an employee of CFEC for 40 years died in August. Campbell said Gores leadership will be missed. In nal matters, cooperative members from District 1 re-elected elma McCain over Regina Goss 533 to 213. Donnie Lane from District 5 and Barbara Townsend from District 9 were re-elected without opposition.The U.S. Naval Sea Cadet Corps parades the colors at the start of the annual meeting.

Stevens reminded board members that if they believe they have a conict of interest it should be reported immediately. A conict of interest might result if they know the property owner well, are related to them, or do not believe they could objectively decide the case. e conict must be stated publicly before the case comes before the VAB. Bell will leave oce on Oct. 18, but he was under the impression he would leave oce on Nov. 3. He won support to have Commissioner John Meeks replace him if that becomes necessary, but Clerk of Circuit Court Danny Shipp said Bells nal day in oce will be Nov. 18 rather than Nov. 3. With that in mind, the VAB claried its motion to have Meeks replace Bell on the VAB after Nov. 18 if that becomes necessary. e business of the VAB should be nished by Nov. 3, however. Barker said there were a half dozen other property owners who led appeals but withdrew their appeal after his oce showed them the facts.One Property Owner a No-Show at Value Board Hearings continued from page 1A County Says Its ALS Non-Transports Dont Have to be State Certied continued from page 1A truck because they are driven by seasoned paramedic supervisors who can do everything in a medical emergency that an ambulance paramedic can do. Knowles acknowledged that Chieands proposed ALS non-transport truck would be state certied because it would be assigned to a specic area of the county to respond to 911 emergency medical calls. It would be the rst state certied ALS non-transport truck in Levy County. But Knowles also told Chieand City Commissioners recently that the Chieand ALS non-transport truck could be dispatched to any part of the county. However, he added that he would try to avoid sending the truck to other areas of the county whenever possible. e county commission has the power to license the City of Chieand to operate an ALS non-transport truck, but has yet to give that approval. A political battle has exploded at times over Chieands request to establish an ALS non-transport unit at Chieand Fire Rescue. Paramedic reghters would operate the truck. e vehicle would be equipped and stocked with medicines like an ambulance, but could not transport patients. Chieand Fire Rescue argues that it could save lives with an ALS non-transport. Fireghters often respond minutes ahead of an ambulance to medical emergencies. Fireghters say the equipment and medicines available to them on an ALS non-transport would save lives. Williston Ordinance Limits Medical Pot Locations from page 1A e ordinance places the following limits on where medical marijuana facilities can be operated: 1. No dispensary or pain management clinic may locate within 1000 feet of any church, school, day care or park. 2. No dispensary or pain management clinic may locate within 100 feet of any residentially zoned property. 3. No dispensary or pain management clinic may locate within the Community Redevelopment District. 3. No dispensary or pain management clinic may locate within 200 feet of Main Street or Noble Avenue. 4. No dispensary or pain management clinic can be located within 2,500 feet of another medical marijuana dispensary or pain management clinic. e citys planning and zoning board recommended approval. One requirement of the ordinance would be for the owner of any proposed medical marijuana facility to le for a special exception permit with the planning and zoning board. e proposed medical marijuana constitutional amendment would exempt medical marijuana facilities from criminal prosecution and would allow the qualifying patient or personal caregiver to have medical marijuana in their possession without fear of arrest. Registered medical marijuana treatment centers would also be immune from criminal prosecution. Strow said he wants the ordinance in place to prevent the proliferation of these facilities in Williston and to prohibit them near residential areas, churches, schools and daycares. Marijuana dispensaries and medical marijuana treatment centers would only be permitted in commercial intensive zoning districts and only after the proprietor obtains a special exception permit from the planning and zoning board. e Florida Department of Health would develop rules and regulations governing the medical marijuana industry after passage of the amendment. e amendment would take eect in early January. Strow said the lack of regulatory oversight for caregivers is one of the loopholes in the proposed constitutional amendment. He said another is the fact that children could obtain a prescription for medical marijuana without their parents knowledge. is is literally a Pandoras box, he said.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923Pesky Questions About Those AWOL Afghans Thomas SowellCreators Syndicatee Ebola outbreak in West Africa is both a danger in itself and a wake-up call for Americans -about President Obama, about the institutions of this country and, most important, about ourselves. ere was a time when an outbreak of a deadly disease overseas would bring virtually unanimous agreement that our top priority should be to keep it overseas. Yet Barack Obama has refused to bar entry to the United States by people from countries where the Ebola epidemic rages, as Britain has done. e reason? Refusing to let people with Ebola enter the United States would conict with the goal of ghting the disease. In other words, the safety of the American people takes second place to the goal of helping people overseas. As if to emphasize his priorities, President Obama has ordered thousands of American troops to go into Ebola-stricken Liberia, disregarding the dangers to those troops and to other Americans when the troops return. What does this say about Obama? At a minimum, it suggests that he takes his conception of himself as a citizen of the world more seriously than he takes his role as President of the United States. At worst, he may consider Americans interests expendable in the grand scheme of things internationally. If so, this would explain a lot of his foreign policy disasters around the world, which seem inexplicable otherwise. ose critics who have been citing Barack Obamas foreign policy ascoes and disasters as evidence that he is incompetent may be overlooking the possibility that he has dierent priorities than the protection of the American people and Americas interests as a nation. is is a monstrous possibility. But no one familiar with the history of the twentieth century should consider monstrous possibilities as things to dismiss automatically. Nor should anyone who has followed Barack Obamas behavior over his lifetime, and the values that behavior reveals. A few critics who, early on, sensed something un-American, if not anti-American, in Barack Obama, succumbed to the idea that he was not a native-born citizen. at claim blew up in their faces. Nor was birthplace crucial anyway. People born overseas have put their lives on the line to defend America, and scientists who escaped from Europe in the 1930s played a major role in creating the nuclear bomb that made the United States a superpower. Conversely, the countrys most notorious traitor -Benedict Arnold -was born on American soil. Whatever the reason, or combination of reasons, that led to President Obamas foreign policy disasters around the world -with the crowning disaster of all, a nuclear Iran, looming on the horizon -it cannot be a simple lack of knowledge or experience. Various former members of the Obama administration are telling the same story, of information and advice from knowledgeable and experienced ocials being ignored by this vain and headstrong man. Back in the 18th century, Edmund Burke pointed out that, whatever the institutions of government, most of the outcomes of what it does must depend upon the exercise of the powers which are left at large to the prudence and uprightness of ministers of state. What did the American voters know about the prudence and uprightness of this untried man they elected president, as a result of his glib rhetoric and his racial symbolism? It is not just bad luck when a reckless gamble turns out disastrously. No one knows at this point how big the Ebola danger may turn out to be. But what we do know is that ocial reassurances about this and other dangers have become worthless. e erosion of Constitutional government over the years has become, under the Obama administration, a deluge of arbitrary edicts and deant lawlessness protected by a grossly politicized Department of Justice. It may be time to consider reorganizing the institutions of government, so that high ocials who try to reassure the public about medical crises are not ocials who serve at the pleasure of the president. Nor should the Attorney General, whose duty is to enforce the laws, be part of an administration whose law-breakers the Justice Department can protect from prosecution. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateSo the ve Afghan soldiers who went missing from two separate U.S. military bases are now all accounted for and apparently headed back to their home country. Feel safer now? Dont. e Pentagon, State Department and Department of Homeland Security would like this story to be over and done. (Just like they wanted the White House fence-jumper story to be buried. But then we found out he didnt just jump the fence; he also overpowered a Secret Service agent, burst through the halls and invaded the East Room wielding a knife.) Here are my nagging questions about another hushed-up national security incident the White House would prefer to whitewash: --Why were ocials so quick to tell the public that these men were not a threat to the public? e two Afghan men who disappeared on Sept. 13 from a training program with the Drug Enforcement Administration in Quantico, Va., were Mohd Naweed Samimi, 24, and Mohammad Yasin Ataye, 22. e three men who ditched Cape Cods Camp Edwards on Sept. 22 were Major Jan Mohammad Arash, Captain Mohammad Nasir Askarzada and Captain Noorullah Aminyar. Both Afghan and U.S. ocials rushed to assure the public that none of these men posed a security threat. e Pentagon said they were vetted by the State Department through its so-called Leahy vetting process. Big deal. is so-called process has been under re for years because of shoddy or unavailable records, as well as inconsistency across programs and agencies. We generally dont know who we are training. We have little reliable information, one U.S. ocial told RAND Corp. researchers. eir study found signicant problems with current U.S. vetting practices in relation to security assistance. at was six years ago. In 2008, similar problems were exposed by the State Department inspector general in visa programs for thousands of Afghan and Iraqi translators and interpreters who worked for U.S. government agencies. e programs were deemed at high risk for fraud and abuse, with almost 25 percent of those approved failing to meet the eligibility criteria. In 2012, after Afghan trainees murdered 45 NATO troops, U.S. Special Operations forces suspended Afghan police and special forces training. Lax screening and security measures led to widespread abuse and corruption within Afghan law enforcement units, not to mention endangerment of our troops. In addition to a massive rescreening eort of 350,000 Afghan security forces, U.S. military leaders directed coalition force units to create safe zones inside (Afghan National Security Forces) compounds where they can defend themselves if necessary. Unfortunately, the safe zone initiative didnt work at Camp Bastion in September 2012, when an unprecedented attack by Taliban inltrators left two Marines dead, 17 troops wounded and eight Harrier jets destroyed or damaged. Neither did safe zones stop the August 2014 slaying of U.S. Maj. Gen. Harold Greene at the hands of a Taliban inltrator wearing an Afghan army uniform. And no such safe zones have been created here at home for when Afghan trainees come to our shores and suddenly wander o. --Where exactly were the Afghan soldiers who ditched Quantico found and with whom? According to press reports citing unnamed federal law enforcement ocials, Samimi and Ataye were picked up in Bualo, N.Y., without incident. Some speculated they wanted to reunite with a relative. Im sure the residents of Bualo would appreciate more details. Alarmingly, when I asked DHS/ICE public aairs ocer Khaalid Walls on Tuesday what the status of the Quantico Afghan soldiers was, he told me: I havent heard of that. --What steps are being taken to ensure that the Cape Cod Afghans arent catch-and-release beneciaries? According to Walls, the men will be in immigration court in Batavia, N.Y., on ursday for a hearing. When I asked whether the feds would intervene if the judge orders them released pending further removal proceedings (which can drag on for years), Walls told me he didnt know. --Isnt it uncanny that both sets of AWOL Afghan soldiers were headed up north near the U.S.-Canada border? e Afghan trio who abandoned Camp Edwards turned up on Rainbow Bridge as they attempted to enter Canada. ats just a half-hour away from Bualo, where the Quantico Afghans were apprehended. Side notes: e FBI is still searching for Canadian al-Qaida terror plotter Amer el-Maati, who trained in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and fellow Canadian fugitive jihadist Faker Ben Abdelaziz Boussora, another al-Qaida terror suspect trained in Afghanistan. And just last week, a Taliban-trained jihadist living in Ottawa pleaded guilty to a terror plot involving 56 cellphone-triggered explosive devices smuggled into Canada from Afghanistan. Hiva Alizadeh was arrested with beheading videos and How To Kidnap an American pamphlets. Past Canadian jihad plots have targeted nancial districts, tourist landmarks, government buildings and power grids on both sides of the border. Last questions: Did the Quantico and Cape Cod soldiers know one another? Have any other Afghan soldiers gone missing? When? Where? Inquiring, non-complacent minds want to know.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Ebola and Obama continued to page 5A Ebola has reached our shores from Africa. Dozens of children are reportedly suering paralysis from a deadly virus with unknown origins. Medical providers across the country have warned of a looming public health crisis as communicable diseases spread unmonitored and uncontrolled. Other countries are cracking down. But America is stuck on open-borders stupid. e Diversity Visa (DV) program, to take just one glaring example of government insanity, is still going. On October 1, the State Department opened the annual DV random lottery to applicants from around the world. Yes, its completely random like a Powerball drawing. Up to 55,000 lucky winners will snag permanent residency visas (green cards), which put them on the path to American citizenship ahead of millions of other foreigners patiently waiting to come to this country. e green card lotto winners spouses and unmarried children under 21 all get golden tickets into the country, too, no matter where they were born. Illegal aliens are eligible if a legal family member wins the jackpot. Applicants dont even need a high school education. No outstanding abilities, training or job skills are necessary. A handful of countries are excluded if they no longer qualify as underrepresented. But if you come from a terror-sponsoring or terror-friendly nation -such as Iran, Syria, Sudan, North Korea and more than a dozen ocially designated terror enablers on the State Departments list -no worries. ousands from these breeding grounds for jihad will walk through our front doors. is is what happens when bipartisan panderers in Washington get their way. e visa lottery was championed by left-wing social engineer Sen. Ted Kennedy and signed into law by President George H. W. Bush in 1990 to admit more underrepresented immigrant minorities into the U.S. Although originally intended to give a leg up to Irish illegal aliens who had overstayed their visas, most of the winners now hail from non-Western terror hot spots and hostile territories.

If you think the feds will ensure that foreign visa-seekers with communicable diseases stay out, think again. e State Department now allows applicants with HIV to apply and enter. ose who suer from tuberculosis, leprosy or other aictions of public health signicance can apply for waivers. Reports indicate that before his departure from Liberia to Texas last week, Ebola carrier omas Duncan lied at the airport about being in contact with someone exposed to the disease. So far, the White House refuses to impose any travel restrictions from West Africa. Its also not clear whether the U.S. has re-screened West Africans who won last years DV game and are ying into the country now. As Ive reported for the past 12 years, enforcement and screening procedures are shoddy. e General Accounting Oce deemed the DV program a national security risk in 2008, while State Department and Homeland Security ocials blamed each other for reckless incompetence. Consular ocers at six of the posts reviewed -Accra (Ghana), Addis Ababa (Ethiopia), Dhaka (Bangladesh), Kathmandu (Nepal), Lagos (Nigeria) and Warsaw (Poland) -reported that the availability of fake documents, or genuine documents with false information, such as birth certicates, marriage certicates, and passports, presented signicant challenges when verifying DV applicants identities and the relationship between the principle DV applicants and their spouse and dependents, the GAO reported. e Diversity Visa lottery program is a public health hazard and a national security risk that leaves our safety to random chance. But pleas to curtail or end the program since the 9/11 attacks have fallen on deaf ears. In the wake of the Ebola scare (not to mention renewed jihadi threats from abroad), worried Americans are heading to the drugstore to stock up on facemasks, hand sanitizer and gloves. New vaccines are in the works for emerging global contagions. Unfortunately, there is no antidote for our governments blind and deadly diversity worship. Political correctness is a plague on us all.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM to Commissioner Mike Joyners motion to reject Chieand request. Commissioner Danny Stevens seconded Joyners motion. e Tallahassee law rm of Nabors Giblin and Nickerson estimates its fee for analyzing the special assessment ordinance for Emergency Medical Services would be $5,000. Government Services Group, which operates out of the same building in Tallahassee, says its fee would be $6,000. Stevens and Joyner, who represent districts in the Williston and Morriston areas of eastern Levy County were opposed to paying any portion of the study. Several weeks ago they led the eort to oppose giving Chieand any additional funding for re services. ey were on the losing end of the re funding vote, but Chieand received less than it requested. Williston received full funding. Discussion of the Emergency Medical Services funding ordinance was triggered by a Sept. 23 letter from Chieand City Manager Mary Ellzey asking what percentage of the ALS study commissioners would be willing to pay and whether they would accept monthly payments for Chieands share. Stevens said Ellzeys request for monthly payments was a red ag in his mind. He wondered how they could aord the $250,000 in annual operating costs for the ALS nontransport unit if the city couldnt pay half the cost of an $11,000 study. e citys estimate of its startup costs for ALS non-transport is $134,000 including equipment and medicines the county would require. When the Chieand request to be licensed for an ALS non-transport unit rst came to the county commission in September of 2013, Joyner said city ocials said it wouldnt cost the county anything to license the unit. But he said now they are asking the county to fund half the cost of an ALS study. Commissioner Ryan Bell repeated what he has often said about ALS non-transport for Chieand. Conceptually this is great, Bell said, but he added that free isnt always free. He said the county commission knew there would be costs associated with starting ALS nontransport and continuing to operate the service. He said $11,000 is a very minimum amount to do their qualifying homework. County Coordinator Freddie Moody said the high startup costs for Chieand were not being driven by the county commission or sta, but rather by the countys medical director. Bell said the county has good relations with the new city manager in Chieand and if theres some way to assist the city at some level, even if it isnt with funding, he said the county should extend its hand. Bell voted with the majority to deny Chieands request for county funding to help pay for the study. Bell added that there were many other unresolved issues, including duplication of services. Johnson said the county from the beginning tried to say there would be costs for starting an ALS unit in Chieand. He said commissioners warned that it wasnt a no cost situation and were wary about stepping o into the abyss without having all the facts. But he said the county was accused of throwing up roadblocks and not working with the city. I dont have any problem with ALS if it doesnt interfere or ruin our assessment program, Johnson said. Supporters of the ALS non-transport unit in Chieand predicted months ago that the county would nd a way to prevent the city from obtaining ALS non-transport. ey werent sure how it would be done. Many thought the issue would be stalled until after the election. But ALS for Chieand continued to be hot issue in the election. e city has calculated that the medical directors requirements for ALS non-transport raised the startup costs for Chieand to $134,000, well beyond what the city could aord this year. Dr. Jason Jones is requiring the city to employ three fulltime paramedics for the ALS non-transport truck. He is also mandating that the city stock the ALS unit with all the equipment and medicines of an ambulance. e county, by contrast, operates two ALS non-transport units that are not state certied and arent required to carry the same drugs and equipment as an ambulance. e county ALS units dont have a sticker in the window that subjects them to random state inspections. City Fire Chief James Harris had hoped he could use the citys full-time paramedic reghter and ve part-time paramedics to operate the ALS non-transport truck. He said the city could nd grant funding to purchase equipment for the truck. He said the re department budget would be increased a small amount using his plan. But Jones and Public Safety Director David Knowles rejected the plan, saying it would degrade the level of care patients receive. Jones then wrote a letter to the city explaining why he is requiring three full-time paramedics and a full battery of equipment and medical supplies equal to that found on an ambulance. Ellzey said she doesnt know where the issue will go from here. She said Moody is preparing a letter explaining the county commissions decision Tuesday. She will carry the letter to the Chieand City Commission meeting Monday. ere were no Chieand ocials present at the county commission meeting. Moody told Ellzey he would handle it.County Rejects Chieands Request for ALS Study Funding continued from page 1A e Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative, Amendment 2, is on the November 4th ballot in the State of Florida as an initiated constitutional amendment. e measure, upon voter approval, would legalize medical marijuana, but its vague wording prompted a recent Miami Herald article to dub the amendment a smokescreen that leaves doctors or caregivers who are negligent in the recommendations for marijuana use without any liability in case of any mishaps a statement with which Florida drug treatment center Suncoast Rehabilitation Center (http://www.suncoastrehabcenter.com/?kmas=324) agrees. Suncoast maintains that the amendment is a thinly veiled attempt to fast track the legalization of recreational marijuana in Florida and is dedicated to informing Florida citizens on the dangers of marijuana and urges educated voting. Rather than legalizing medical marijuana, Suncoast executives advise the use of non-psychoactive substances that help individuals in need while also keeping public safety and health intact. While Amendment 2 seems to have garnered some Floridians support, those who oppose the legalization have cited concerns about seemingly disturbing loopholes in the Amendment: Amendment 2 does not require a doctors prescription in order to obtain marijuana because that would violate federal law; only a doctors recommendation is needed, which is a determination that an individual suers from an illness or condition that the physician feels the use of marijuana would be appropriate for relief of that symptom. Furthermore, the issue of liability has been raised; doctors and physicians and growers, dispensaries and smokers everyone within the marijuana distribution chain are granted full civil and criminal immunity and cannot be held liable for any mishaps. Essentially, this erases any patient protections that the current checks and balances of the legal system oer. Suncoast Executive Director, Tammy Strickling, maintains that the above technicalities, when combined with the lax parameters put in place by the loosely-worded Amendment, allow for marijuana to be recommended for any possible conditionessentially making the drug available to all ages for any type of pain or discomfort. ere is no age restriction in the amendment, meaning that teens and children will be able to legally purchase pot without their parents consent. People of any age can be labelled a qualifying patient which simply means that they have been diagnosed with a debilitating medical condition or some other condition, and any caregiver can assist the child or teen in getting and using the drug, said Strickling. But Strickling poses yet another troubling question: will the legalization of marijuana act as an impetus for yet another potential drug epidemic in Florida, the original home of the pill mill? As a state which has yet to ensure that the only people who have access to drugs are those who truly need them, the likelihood that medical marijuana will be any dierent is slim to none, per Strickling. Suncoast ocials say that todays marijuana has the highest THC levels ever seen marijuana sold in pot shops as medicine is testing at THC levels in the mid 20% range, which is much higher than marijuana sold on the street, and dwarfs levels seen nearly 40 years ago, when the average THC potency was 1.37%. Because marijuana users can suer from dicult withdrawal symptoms, such as irritability, decreased appetite and anxiety, treatment can be a critical rst stepand the number of people seeking help will likely grow as marijuana continues to be the illicit drug of choice among American teens and adults, per Strickling. Statistics show that daily or almost daily marijuana use increased from 5.1 million Americans in 2007 to 7.6 million in 2012. Strickling maintains that the key to stemming the rise of a potential epidemic is by limiting, rather than increasing, access to drugs such as marijuana. Furthermore, public education about the potential dangers of drug abuse is critical. For people currently struggling with addiction, treatment is the rst step in helping them to reclaim their lives from substance abuse and returning them to being healthy and contributing members of society. Over 90 percent of Suncoasts clients tried marijuana rst before using other drugs, and another 60 percent list marijuana as being used concurrently with another drug of choice.Medical Marijuana Amendment 2 Deemed a Smokescreen

Defeating Lake Butler on their home eld 28-14 has the Red Devils 3-0 in the SMAC (4-0 overall) with only Fort White left on their conference schedule. e win was not an easy one as Lake Butler jumped ahead in the game 6-0 on a 35yard run around the end. After a 32-yard kick-o return by Quinyon Mitchell the Red Devils drove and scored on a 15-yard strike from C.J. Strange to Mike Robinson which was followed by Jeremiah James tacking on the extra two points. After a fumble recovery by standout Joey Sistrunk the Devils once again drove for a touchdown scored by Jeremiah James from 30 yards out. Lake Butler then hit a 70-yard pass and converted the extra point to bring the score to 14-14 at half. In a hard-hitting game on a wet night Mike Robinson blocked a Lake Butler pass at the line of scrimmage and Joey Sistrunk intercepted it. A few plays later C.J. Strange lofted a 32-yard pass to Quinyon Mitchell and Jeremiah James shot a bullet to Blake Hall for the conversion to bring the score to 22-14. Next a perfectly executed onside kick allowed the Williston team to keep the ball and control the clock with the Lake Butler oense forced to watch. Jeremiah James crossed the goal line with four minutes remaining on the clock to bring the nal score to 28-14. C.J. Strange was 11/17 for 138 yards and 2 TDs. Mike Robinson had 9 catches for 82 yards and a TD; Quinyon Mitchell had 1 catch for 32 yards and a TD; Joey Sistrunk had 2 catches for 17 yards; and Blake Hall caught an extra two-point conversion. Jeremiah James had 14 rushes for 91 yards and Mike Robinson had 12 rushes for 24 yards. Defensively the Red Devils took 5 turnovers from Lake Butler, including Joey Sistrunks interception and fumble recoveries by Joey Sistrunk, Devante Dallas, Isaac Williams and Mike Robinson. Mike Robinson also led the team with four tackles. Head Coach Greg Hamilton said, is was a great victory for our kids. Our lines are a work in progress and we were pretty beat up tonight. However, these kids are tough and did not turn the ball over even in the downpour. C.J. Strange continues to perform well with 11 touchdown passes in 4 games. In two of those games he only played about a half. Williston plays at Fort White on October 14th and at home in the Championship game on October 21st in a rematch against a very good Lake Butler team.Williston Beats Lake Butler and Hosts SMAC ChampionshipTallahassee, Fla Florida Department of Corrections Secretary Crews announced today a number of measures aimed at ensuring the appropriate care and custody for Florida inmates with mental health conditions and protecting public safety. Secretary Crews said: e Department is responsible for the custody of between 15 and 20 percent of its inmates having a diagnosed mental condition requiring mental health treatment. We are committed to ensure our actions are reective of the Departments mission to promote public safety and the safety of our sta and our inmates by providing them appropriate security, supervision, and care. Secretary Crews announcement follows a comprehensive review of the Departments policies related to the care of inmates with mental health conditions. e review was conducted by Dr. Aufderheide, a nationally recognized expert in mental health care, and Mr. Upchurch, also a nationally recognized expert in institutional and security operations. ey recommended in a memo to Secretary Crews (attached) that the Department take the following actions: A Mental Health Ombudsman will be appointed to enhance the Department eorts in the care and treatment of inmates with severe mental illness. e Ombudsman will provide a specialized resource to the Department for the most vulnerable mentally ill inmates, which are the approximately 1,000 inmates with severe mental illness admitted to the Departments inpatient units. e Mental Health Ombudsman will be the rst of its kind in the nations prison systems dedicated solely to inmates with severe mental illness inpatient level care. It will be established as a specialized liaison to the Oce of Health Services for mentally ill inmates in the inpatient units and will report directly to Dr. Aufderheide, Director of Mental Health Services, while collaborating with existing sta. To address the challenges faced by sta, the Department expanded its Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) programs for correctional ocers. e training strategically focused on frontline security sta acquiring 1) a working knowledge of mental illness; 2) an understanding of the challenges mentally ill inmates face in prison adjustment, 3) crisis intervention skills; 4) basic de-escalation skills; and advanced de-escalation techniques. e goal is to avoid unnecessary uses of force, which results in increased sta and inmate safety. As of this date, 2,749 ocers currently with the Department have completed the CIT training. e Department is also developing specialized training for sta assigned to the inpatient units, which are located at 10 institutions across the state. e training emphasizes working as a team with a multidisciplinary approach to improve the care and custody of the inmates with severe mental illness residing in the inpatient units. e collaboration among all members of the multidisciplinary treatment team results in improved supervision and care of mentally ill inmates in the Departments Inpatient Mental Health Units. In addition, the Department anticipates a Corrections Behavioral Health Certication made available in the near future that will certify ocers assigned to the care of inmates to understand the mental health spectrum of issues, from the time an inmate rst enters prison throughout the incarceration period.

Governor Rick Scott issued an update on Ebola preparedness activities throughout the state, following the news that the Miami patient tested for Ebola has tested negative in a preliminary test. Further testing will be completed later this week to rule out any possibility of Ebola. Governor Scott said, We are glad to hear that the test for the Miami patient was indeed negative for Ebola and we are hopeful that further CDC and Department of Health analysis will back up this preliminary negative result later this week. While we have no conrmed cases of Ebola in Florida, we are continuing to take every step possible to best protect our citizens and our tourists. Today, I spoke to Texas Governor Rick Perry about what their state has learned from responding to the conrmed Ebola patient in Dallas. We will stay in communication with Texas ocials as their response and treatment eorts continue to develop. Florida state agencies also held conference calls with our states airport and port leaders today to share information on preparedness steps at each of their facilities. Supporting the preparedness eorts of our airports and our ports means we must have a tremendous partnership between the state, federal ocials and local leaders on the ground. We will continue to communicate regularly with these leaders in the days ahead as Florida continues to hope for the best even while we prepare for the worst.JOINT INFORMATION CENTER UPDATE:Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA): e Agency identied hospitals that have the proper treatment kits and isolation facilities suitable for the treatment Ebola cases. e Agency distributed information on the identication, handling, and reporting of a potential Ebola case to sta members at Agency call centers/area oces and in the oces of Agency partners. Agency sta members have been trained and placed on alert in the event that they should need to support hospitals in coordinating with the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) relative to pertinent waivers and related federal guidelines during the course of management of a declared emergency and commensurate diversion of facility resources. Agency sta members have been trained and placed on alert in the event that they are required to provide expedited reviews of any requests from hospitals relative to protocols for identication and management of suspected Ebola viral disease; including those related to the patients, transport, and the physical plant of the facility, as necessary.Florida Department of Health (DOH): Additional patient screening and care guidance is being provided to all local Hospitals, Urgent Care Centers, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and all private providers of care to address the full range of issues posed by potential Ebola cases. Distributed Ebola-related medical guidance to Non-Governmental Organizations (NGO) and Faith-Based Organizations (FBO) throughout the state to protect humanitarian volunteers who may travel to or from regions where the disease is present.Gov.

A stingy second half defense that forced big turnovers and an explosive oensive gave the Eagles the sweet taste of victory. We played pretty well except for the rst couple of oensive series, but after that we played really hard and forced a lot of turnovers, said Coach Cameron Porch. Garry Mitchell scored two touchdowns and David Dees, Montrez Jackson and Bobby Florence scored one touchdown each. e last time Bronson beat Bell was in 2005 when most of the team was in elementary school. Porch said the dierence is in the attitude of the 2014 Eagles. ey nd ways to win and they never stop battling. e Eagles have begun using defense to set up oensive scores, the signature of a winning team. ese guys are willing to stick their head in there and ght, Porch said. Porch said the biggest improvement has been the teams ability to play through adversity and mistakes. e team stiens its defense after a mistake and often plays with greater intensity. Bronson travels to Taylor High School in Pierson Friday night. Game time is 7:30 p.m. e following week is a home game against Hilliard High School. e district game will begin at 7:30 p.m. at John Rutledge Field. e night was rainy and the eld was slick for the start of the homecoming game. e Eagles opened with a defensive stand. With their back against their own end zone, Bronson took over at its own 7-yard line after deecting a fourth-down pass. e goal line stand set up the Eagles rst score. Bronson drove 93 yards and scored on a 6-yard run by Bobby Florence. Mitchell smashed through the line to score on a two-point conversion run. Bell scored two plays later from 45 yards out and added the two-point conversion to tie the score at 8-8 with 10:44 left in the half. e score wouldnt change for the balance of the half. e Bulldogs caught Bronson sleeping when they employed an onside kick to start the third quarter. Bell recovered, but couldnt move the ball. Bronson fumbled early in the third quarter. Bell recovered, but the Eagle defense turned the mistake into pay dirt. Bells next oensive series ended when David Dees ripped the ball loose from a Bell runner and ran the ball back to the Bulldog 20, setting up Bronsons second touchdown. Mitchell ran three times, scoring on a short-yardage blast up the middle with 6:08 left in the third quarter. e two-point conversion pass failed, leaving the score 14-8. e Eagle defense shut down Bell on its next series, setting up another score. When Bronson took possession, Dees rumbled 52 yards for an Eagle touchdown, shaking o tackles and making cuts through a maze of defenders on his way to the end zone. Jackson ran for the two-point conversion, increasing the Eagle lead to 22-8 with 3:57 left in the third quarter. Bell fumbled on its next possession. Tyler Sistrunk recovered for Bronson. e Eagles were back in business. Quarterback Jason Ranalli pitched the ball to Jackson. He scorched the turf on a 65yard touchdown run. Mitchell barreled into the end zone standing up for the two-point conversion, leaving the score 30-8 with 11:45 left in the game. Dees recovered another fumble on Bells next series, but Bell responded with an interception. But the Bronson defense wasnt ready to quit. e Eagles took over on downs with another defensive stand, taking back the ball at the Bell 36. Jackson broke loose on the rst play from scrimmage and ran the ball to the Bell 9-yard line. Mitchell picked up ve more tough yards. Florence ran the ball to within inches of the goal line. Mitchell punched the ball into the end zone with 4:14 left. e two-point conversion failed, leaving the score 36-8. Bronson played loose defense on Bells next possession and allowed the Bulldogs to score their nal touchdown with about 50 seconds left on the clock.

(I hope Roy Orbison comes again this year. He showed up last year!) Looking back, Im sure glad I survived my ride with the killer pimp. You see, I was just a nave little punk at the time, working my way through Jr. College, coughing up sixty bucks a month rent out of my Pell grant money to share a one room eciency. I had nothing more than an old mattress and a few sets of clothes to my name. A local burglar checked us periodically to make sure of that. I had hopes of catching him one day, but until then, we made do. He always left our toothbrushes and the crusty old hot plate we heated our Ramen noodles on. What really got me hot was when somebody went and stole my 1977 Datsun B-210 without bringing it back. I didnt tolerate horse thieving, so I saddled my moms yellow Buick Century and rode out to bring my trusty steed back home. Unfortunately, the rst guy I trusted turned out to be the killer pimp. He was loitering out front of the corner store when I rode up. Yeah, I know who got your car man, he spoke up, But dem some mean dudes. You bed not go alone. Where they at, I fumed. He glanced around. Ill take you der man, he whispered, but you gon need some help. Well, I guess youre right, I agreed. It did seem reasonable to have a partner in case of a ruckus, and I gured him to be a good one, standing at least 67, not counting his 6 fro and 4 stacks. He pointed me down some back streets till we came up on a nice looking young lady on the corner. Pull over, he said, Im gon ask him where yo car bes at. Him? I questioned. He strutted o like George Jeerson. Some money changed hands, and there was a small scue. My partner let loose with a few backhands, and soon came back un-wading some bills. He slid them into his money clip. What? he challenged, She said yo cars two blocks down. Well, it werent true. We ended up in neighborhoods that afternoon I gured Id never see this side of hell, and it was always the same old routine, She said yo cars two blocks down. Finally it dawned on me, Im being suckered for a ride. I gritted my teeth and confronted him, You dont really know where my car is do you? At that point the killer pimp pulled a gun out of his sock. Needless to say, we went on and nished his rounds. He collected all his money, and when hed proved his pimp hand was still strong, he turned to me, Give me yo wallet. Some partner you turned out to be, I mumbled. It contained my life savings, but I handed it over and he hopped out with my last ve dollars. I shrugged and headed o to pick up my date for the evening. Im not sure I even mentioned the incident to her, other than advising her shed be paying again. Its amazing what youll begin to think is common place after youve lived a while out on one of those mean city streets named after some dead President. But anywayTwenty years have come and gone since that day. I now live in a nice neighborhood in a quiet little country town. I even have a fancy alarm system; though Im not sure why. Im hardly ever mixed up in gun play anymore, and I was just thinking how great things have become, especially since Ive asked Jesus to come into my heart. Many would probably say Ive come a good ways since my days on the horse thieving posse. However, in reality, I think God might say, Hey man, yo car aint but two blocks down. You see, my little journey towards righteousness wouldnt lift me to the rst rung on the ladder to heaven. Come onHow could I expect to even come close to earning Gods gift of eternal life, or attain to His standards of holiness? Shucks, on the righteousness gauge, the killer pimp and I probably arent that far apart. Neither of us could muster enough holiness to ll the tank on my B-210! Christians arent perfect people. ey are just forgiven people. Our only hope is in Gods grace. Its ridiculous to think our good works could make us acceptable before a holy God. See Ephesians 2:8-9. It is only by our faith in the redemptive work of His son Jesus that we stand. ( erefore being justied by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: Romans 5:1) PERIOD!!! Dont let that killer pimp sucker you for a ride. If youre being told being a good person is going to get you into heaven, I strongly suggest you try a new posse, and quick. You dont want to stand before a holy God based on your own righteousness. I dont care who you are. If you think its hard out here for a pimp now, how do you think its going to be on judgment day? Gods grace and forgiveness is being oered to you right now, but its only through Jesus. I suggest you throw your saddle over on that deal.

By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterDozens of Christians stood with signs along two major highways in Chieand Sunday to protest abortion and alert people to the option of adoption as an alternative to killing the unborn. e annual Life Chain takes place annually in October to serve as a reminder that tens of thousands of young women in the country terminate their pregnancy through the use of abortion and dont take advantage of adoption as a humane alternative. Among those holding signs were 92-year-old Evelyn Etheredge and her daughter Beverly Lowe of Chieand. Ive been taking part ever since I knew about it, Etheredge said. I believe in the cause. Im against abortion; in other words, killing people. Her daughter Beverly said many people honked horns in support of the Life Chain and there were some who honked in opposition. Its kind of a small thing you can do to show all life is precious and given by God, she said. Felicia Middleton held her 1-year-old daughter Kate Elizabeth Middleton in one arm and a sign that said Abortion Kills Children in the other. I feel children didnt ask to come here. We should give them an opportunity to have a life, she said. You dont know when you take a childs life what that child might have meant to the world. Middleton, the mother of four, said she named her youngest daughter after Princess Kate and Kates mother-in-law, Queen Elizabeth. Middleton is the family name. I gure if England can have one (a Kate Middleton) so can America, Middleton said. Although the Life Chain was represented by many churches, there were a couple dozen from First Baptist Church, among them Pastor Gordon Keller. Were trying to get the message out today and make them aware of the options, Keller said. It is intended to be a silent demonstration of what we stand for. Keller quoted from the Alan Guttmacher Institute which estimates 41 million babies have been aborted or 20 babies every 20 seconds every day for 29 years.Annual Life Chain Remains a Silent Protest to AbortionFood and Music at 45th Annual Cedar Key Seafood Festival Oct. 18 & 19e Cedar Key Seafood Festivals local non-prot organizations are oering a wide range of seafood items, to include (on Saturday only) the classic Cedar Key mullet dinner.
