Under Florida law, Winn Dixie has the right to hire a tax representative to present their appeal to the VAB. Assessment Technologies sent a packet explaining the companys position, but didnt send a representative to the hearing. County Commissioner John Meeks, a spectator for the board meeting said VAB members have better things to do than to give up part of their day for a hearing where the stores representative doesnt show. Were going to work on the legislative delegation about this, said Meeks. Property Appraiser Osborne Barker set the value of the Winn Dixie Store and property at $2,125,230, but Winn Dixie wanted it lowered to $1,642,000 or a maximum of $1,694,000, according to Assistant Property Appraiser Randy Rutter. Barker proved that his o ce had correctly established the fair market value of Winn Dixie in Chie and and the board supported his values by giving unanimous approval.

Dry weather is necessary to harvest peanuts and the extreme wet weather in September made peanut picking and hay mowing challenging. Hay must be dry to be high quality. Levy County Agricultural Extension Agent Anthony Drew said every farmer lost some peanuts to the wet weather, but the crop overall was excellent. I said last years crop couldnt be beat, but I was wrong, Drew said. I would say 70 percent of the crop was very good or better than last year an all-time record. Drew estimated 20,000 to 24,000 acres of peanuts were grown in Levy County, which is comparable to previous years. Peanuts and watermelons are the biggest row crops grown in the county. September was one of the wettest months in anyones memory. e National Weather Service didnt o er insights into the extremely wet weather, although the agency said an El Nio was developing. An El Nio is a warming of the Paci c Ocean waters o the equatorial coast of South America. It produces wetter weather in this area of Florida in the fall, winter and spring months. Despite the choking dust on roads from the dry weather, the Florida Division of Forestry said the drought index was still very low and the chances of wild res even lower. e grass remains green and forests remain moist, even if the roads are dusty. Rain was in the forecast for Tuesday night. Dry, Dusty Weather Permits Picking of Peanuts By Terry WittSenior Staff Writer e price tag for a replacement septic tank and drain eld at a federal-funded home rehabilitation project near Inglis has risen to $159,821 with the latest change order. On the tax roll, the homes assessed value is $110,292. Engineer Joakiim (Jay) Nordquist of GSE Engineering and Consultants told Levy County Commissioners last week that an underdrain and gutter improvement would add to the cost of the project. e Levy County Commission is responsible for completing the project. e commission received a Community Developme nt Block grant from the federal government to rehabilitate homes for low income households, but this project is the only one that has caused a pile of problems. e cost of 135 feet of drain pipe along the road in front of the house to a nearby canal will be $13,105 and the cost of moving rain gutters from one area of the house to another location will be $1,760. Nordquist said moving the gutter will add less water to the septic tank drain eld. ose numbers are part of the $159,821. Engineers working for Jordan and Associates, a consulting rm hired the county commission to administer the CDBG grant, have been under intense pressure to repair the troublesome drain eld. e septic tank needs to function properly or the homeowners, Roberto and Deborah Tarafa, could lose the use of their home. ey need working toilets. e Tarafa home is located in Peaceful Acres, an older subdivision located on a peninsula jutting out into Lake Rousseau.

But City Commissioner Betty Walker said she has talked to county o cials and she believes the county will support monthly or quarterly billing. She reminded commissioners that if they refused to pay for the study it would end any chance of the city being able to operate an ALS non-transport unit. e city still hasnt gured out where it would get the estimated $134,000 in startup costs for the unit. ey wanted to get the study out of the way rst.

Harris accepted the apology and shook hands with the mayor. Perryman, who was absent from the meeting said later that it wasnt over for him. Ive been spiteful to the re department. I want to apologize to Chief Harris and Colby Perryman, Pomeroy said, surprising many in the commission meeting room. Pomeroy allegedly confronted Perryman about signing a letter accusing the mayor of a racial slur during a meeting with re ghters. Four re ghters signed the letter including Assistant Chief A.D. Goodman and Deputy Chief Gene Stockman. e letter was circulated in the community before it was brought to the Chie and City Commission for discussion. Pomeroy denied making the racial slur and was angry at Harris for not bringing the letter to him.

When they arrived at the home, the woman and a female friend invited the man into the bedroom and asked him to remove his pants, shoes and socks. e women left the room. Hall entered the room with a machete, court records said. Hall threatened to kill the victim. Hall and the two female accomplices left the trailer in possession of the victims wallet containing $1,000. e three robbers later drove to Trenton to purchase crack cocaine. One of the women admitted under questioning that her female friend had committed similar robberies in the past. Other sentences: David Ray Puckett 48, Bronson, was sentenced to 1 year and 1 week in state prison after pleading no contest to felony drunken driving. Puckett was seen by a witness driving o the road and hitting a stand of trees. A second caller said he saw the same vehicle and the driver gave him the nger. e rst caller spotted the car in a driveway with Puckett standing outside the vehicle and a woman looking at the damage. A Levy County sheri s deputy approached Puckett and smelled alcohol. When Puckett cursed the o cer his speech was slurred. He refused an alcohol breath test at the Levy County Detention Center. e female who was with Puckett said she did see him drinking, court records said. Joeanna Louise Malone 35, Old Town, was sentenced to 180 days in the Levy County Detention Center after pleading no contest to unlawful possession of a listed chemical. She was given credit for 92 days served in jail. Malone was arrested on April 9 following an undercover investigation by the Chie and Police Department targeting people who were purchasing ingredients used to manufacture methamphetamine. Investigators were positioned in Wal-Mart to watch the purchase of Sudafed at the pharmacy. Police saw Malone and two other women in WalMart for an extended period without making a purchase. ey appeared to be casing the store. ey were looking around nervously. One of the women walked to the pharmacy counter and purchased pseudoephedrine products. O cer Jay Bolton followed her to a car in the parking lot. Sgt. Franz Macy stopped the car near the Dollar Tree store next door to Wal-Mart. e woman who made the purchase said she did so at the request of Malone. She assumed Malone was not able to make the purchase because she would have needed a drivers license to make the buy, and her license had been suspended. Police searched the car and found items used for the manufacture of methamphetamine including a digital scale, cut plastic straws, and an unopened box of Sudafed. In the trunk they found a baby pack containing cut open and empty bottles of lighter uid, a plastic container led with aqua chemical pool test strips, several pieces of clear tubing and a funnel. Police said the items were the types of products used for the manufacture of methamphetamine in a mobile lab. Samuel Allen Monroe, 52, was sentenced to 120 days in state prison after pleading no contest to felony driving with a suspended or revoked license. He was given credit for 57 days served in jail. e Florida Highway Patrol arrested Monroe on Aug. 13 after a trooper saw him driving through the intersection of County Road 335 and County Road 318 at a speed slow enough that the trooper noticed the driver and passenger had no seatbelts and the vehicle had no license plate. e trooper ran a license check and found that Monroes license had been revoked for being a habitual tra c o ender. e trooper also discovered Monroe was wanted in Levy County on an active warrant.

He said there needs to be a penalty if they dont show. Rutter said the practice of hiring tax representatives to prepare a case for value adjustment boards is getting out of hand statewide. He said in one Dixie County case, the landowner didnt know a tax representative had led an appeal on their behalf until the property appraiser called to ask why a petition was led. Rutter said Winn Dixie les a petition every year seeking to lower its values but never sends a representative to the hearing.

Our new rating is 4 for the city and 4Y outside the city, our previous rating had been 6 City and 8B outside the City of Williston. Williston Fire Rescue was contacted by the ISO evaluation team in September 2013 and advised that they would be conducting our 5-year assessment in early January 2014. Williston Fire Chief Lamar Stegall, put together a team of ocers and reghters to evaluate our needs and requirements to prepare for this extensive inspection. Chief Stegall assigned Deputy Fire Chief Lake Raymond and Lt. Larry Neal to lead the team. You might be asking why the ratings are so important to you and why a lower number is better. ISO is an independent company that serves insurance companies, communities, re departments, insurance regulators, and others by providing information about risk. ISOs expert sta collects information about municipal re suppression eorts in communities throughout the United States. In each of those communities, ISO analyzes the relevant data and assigns a Public Protection Classication a number from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents an exemplary re suppression program, and Class 10 indicates that the areas re suppression program does not meet ISOs minimum criteria. ISO collects and evaluates information from communities in the United States on their structure re suppression capabilities. e data is analyzed using our Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) and then a Public Protection Classication (PPC) number is assigned to the community. e surveys are conducted whenever it appears that there is a possibility of a classication change. As such, the PPC program provides important, up-to-date information about re protection services throughout the country. e Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS) recognizes re protection features only as they relate to suppression of rst alarm structure res. In many communities, re suppression may be only a small part of the re departments overall responsibility. ISO recognizes the dynamic and comprehensive duties of a communitys re service, and understands the complex decisions a community must make in planning and delivering emergency services. However, in developing a communitys Public Protection Classication, only features related to reducing property losses from structural res are evaluated A communitys investment in re mitigation is a proven and reliable predictor of future re losses. Statistical data on insurance losses bears out the relationship between excellent re protection as measured by the PPC program and low re losses. So, insurance companies use PPC information for marketing, underwriting, and to help establish fair premiums for homeowners and commercial re insurance. In general, the price of re insurance in a community with a good PPC is substantially lower than in a community with a poor PPC, assuming all other factors are equal. Williston Fire Rescue encourages you to contact your home owners insurance company and advise them that you have a new ISO rating of Class 4 in the city (Class 4Y in the city-protected county area) and depending on your company you could be eligible for an annual rate reduction of up to 18 percent on the re portion of your insurance. If you are not sure you live in the area protected by Williston Fire Rescue please contact us at 352/528-5003 or message us on Facebook. Danny Wallace Asst.

But Williston has launched an eort through its Community Redevelopment Agency to create a new city parking area to support current and future businesses in the citys oldest business district in the downtown area. e City Council voted last week to hire realtor Cookie King to negotiate with eight landowners who own portions of an acre-and-a-half of land behind vacant buildings that front U.S. 27.

Lippmann said the city wants to buy the vacant property and the old Fort Furniture Building plus a tin building behind Ross Hardware. e properties will be blended into one city parking lot. City council members advertised for a realtor who could take the tough real estate project and make it happen. e city is not experienced in real estate negotiations.

Chieand Mayor Apologizes for Spiteful Behavior continued from page 1A not sure why the soils drain so poorly at the Tarafa home, but there is suspicion the developer used soil removed from the nearby canal as a base for the residential lots. Or the soils may just drain poorly on this particular piece of property. Commission Chairman Ryan Bell wondered if Nordquist was certain the latest x would actually allow the drain eld to function correctly. Commissioners have been hit with repeated change orders as engineers struggled to nd a way to make the drain eld work. Are we sure, were sure, Bell said. Nordquist said his company was unaware that the previous owner had installed a series of trenches and pipes leading to the canal that made the old septic tank drainage eld work. Bell said he was sorry Nordquist missed that information. Bell said when he rst visited the property the owners gave him a twohour dissertation explaining how everything worked. Commissioner Danny Stevens questioned why a 135 foot drain pipe would cost $13,000. I just got a lot of heartburn for $13,000 for 100 feet of pipe, he said. Bell said the county has stayed with the project because it doesnt want to give up on helping the Tarafa family and it needs to meet the requirements of the federal CDBG grant.

L EVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Look Whos Data Mining Your Toddlers Thomas Sowell Creators Syndicate Goddard Colleges recent decision to have its students addressed from prison by a convicted cop killer is just one of many unbelievably irresponsible self-indulgences by educators in our schools and colleges. Such educators teach minorities born with an incredibly valuable windfall gain -American citizenship -that they are victims who have a grievance against people today who have done nothing to them, because of what other people did in other times. If those individuals who feel aggrieved could sell their American citizenship to eager buyers from around the world and leave, everybody would probably be better o. ose who leave would get not only a substantial sum of money -probably $100,000 or more -they would also get a valuable dose of reality elsewhere. Nothing is easier than to prove that America, or any other society of human beings, is far from being the perfect gem that any of us can conjure up in our imagination. But, when you look around the world today or look back through history, you can get a very painfully sobering sense of what a challenge it can be in the real world to maintain even common decency among human beings. Living just one year in the Middle East would be an education in reality that could obliterate years of indoctrination in grievances that passes for education in too many of our schools, colleges and universities. You could go on to get a postgraduate education in reality in some place like North Korea. If you prefer to get your education in the comfort of a library, rather than in person amid the horrors, you might study the history of the sadistic massacres of the Armenians in the Ottoman Empire or the heart-wrenching story of Stalins man-made 1930s famine in the Soviet Union that killed as many millions of people as Hitlers Holocaust did in the 1940s. Maos man-made famine in China killed more people than the Soviet famine and the Nazi Holocaust combined. And we should not deny their rightful place in historys chamber of horrors to the 1970s Cambodian dehumanization and slaughters that killed o at least a quarter of the entire population of that country. What about slavery? Slavery certainly has its place among the horrors of humanity. But our educators today, along with the media, present a highly edited segment of the history of slavery. ose who have been through our schools and colleges, or who have seen our movies or television miniseries, may well come away thinking that slavery means white people enslaving black people. But slavery was a worldwide curse for thousands of years, as far back as recorded history goes. Over all that expanse of time and space, it is very unlikely that most slaves, or most slave owners, were either black or white. Slavery was common among the vast populations in Asia. Slavery was also common among the Polynesians, and the indigenous peoples of the Western Hemisphere enslaved other indigenous peoples before anyone on this side of the Atlantic had ever seen a European. More whites were brought as slaves to North Africa than blacks brought as slaves to the United States or to the 13 colonies from which it was formed. White slaves were still being bought and sold in the Ottoman Empire, decades after blacks were freed in the United States. What does all this mean? In addition to the chilling picture that it paints of human nature, it means that Americans today -all Americans -are among the luckiest people who have ever inhabited this planet. Most Americans living in ocially dened poverty today have such things as central airconditioning, cable television, a microwave oven and a motor vehicle. A scholar who spent years studying Latin America said that what is dened as poverty in the United States today is upper middle class in Mexico. Do we still need to do better? Yes! Human beings all over the world are not even close to running out of room for improvement. ere is so much knowledge and skills that need to be transmitted to the young that turning schools and colleges into indoctrination centers is a major and reckless disservice to them and to American society, which is vulnerable as all human societies have always been, especially those that are decent. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Michele Malkin Creators Syndicate Attention, parents: Have your little ones been subjected to TS Gold in school yet? If you care about student privacy, data mining and classroom intrusions, you might want to start asking questions and protecting your children now before its too late. Whats happening here in Colorado with this onerous testing regime is happening everywhere. Informed families and teachers from all parts of the political spectrum agree: Its a Big Government/Big Business gold rush you dont want to join. TS Gold stands for Teaching Strategies Gold. is school readiness assessment system was mandated in our state several years ago. It has already permeated private daycare centers and preschools; pilot testing in publicly funded preschools and kindergartens is currently taking place. More than 42,000 kids in Colorado alone have been subjected to the assessments. Most parents have no idea the scheme is on track for full implementation by the 2015-2016 school year. e company already plans to expand assessments to cover children from birth through third grade. Competitors include Californias Desired Results Developmental Prole system and the HighScope Child Observation Record. TS Golds creators describe the testing vehicle as an early childhood assessment system that purportedly measures the whole child. What that means is that the tests are not only for literacy, mathematics, science and technology, social studies and the arts, but also for developmental domains including social emotional, physical, language and cognitive development. Aligned to the federal Common Core standards, which were designed and copyrighted by a small cadre of Beltway educrats, TS Gold received $30 million in federal Race to the Top subsidies in 2012. e assessors have 38 objectives arranged under nine topics of academic learning, psychomotor data and social-emotional development. Students are rated and recorded on their ability to do things like respond to emotional cues, interact cooperatively and cooperate and share ideas and materials in socially acceptable ways. TS Gold directs teachers to document student behaviors with videos, audio les, journals and photos -which are then uploaded to a central database cloud. Already overwhelmed by myriad testing burdens, teachers must undergo intensive training that takes scarce time away from actual instruction. Educators must gather disturbingly intimate and personal data every school day, collate and upload it, and then le lengthy checkpoint ratings on each child every 10 to 12 weeks. Creeped out yet? is is just the tip of the data-mining iceberg. Last spring, parent Lauren Coker discovered that TS Gold assessors in her sons Aurora, Colo., public preschool had recorded information about his trips to the bathroom, his hand-washing habits and his ability to pull up his pants. When I asked if we could opt out of the system, Coker told me, school ocials told her no. She pulled her son out of the school and still doesnt know whether or how the data can be removed. Sunny Flynn, a mom with kids in Jeerson County, Colo., started raising pointed questions to her school ocials about TS Gold last year. Where exactly is this powerful, predictive and personal data on our children being stored? she asked. What security measures are being used to protect this data? Who exactly has access to this data? How long will the data be stored? What is the proven benet of a kindergarten teacher putting all of this data into a database? e ultimate goal is not improved school performance. e real end is massive student data-mining for meddling and prot. e Obama administration sabotaged federal student and family privacy protections through backroom regulation, allowing once-protected student data to be sold to private vendors for the creation of what one Colorado bureaucrat calls human capital pipelines. Edutech rms such as Pearson, Microsoft, Google and Knewton are salivating at the lucrative opportunities to exploit educational Big Data and sell customized learning products in the most data-mineable industry in the world. And the politicians who can hook them up are reaping rich rewards in their campaign coers. As the authors of the Pioneer Institutes invaluable report Cogs in the Machine explain: Accompanying Common Core and national testing, and undergirding their inuence, is a thickening network of student databases, largely pushed on states by the federal government. Federally subsidized state longitudinal data systems -all identical and shareable -have enabled a de facto national database. Cheri Kiesecker, a mom of elementary school kids in Fort Collins who has vigilantly tracked the student data mining initiative in Colorado, warns that the data follows these children from preschool all the way through college and the workforce. Colorado educrats glowingly refer to the proles as golden records. While they smugly assure parents that the data is safe, Kiesecker told me: We all know how frequent data breaches are. We also know that TS Gold allows teachers to share video and photos of children, as well as observations on childrens general anxiety levels and behavior. Are parents aware of just how much information is collected and shared outside the classroom? At a meeting of concerned parents in my community, grassroots activist Kanda Calef, a Colorado Springs mom, issued a call to arms last week that applies to primary educational providers here and across the country: If we dont get parents to stand up, we will never win this ght. e battle never ends.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM Irresponsible Education continued to page 5A By Oleg Atbashian for Frontpage Mag e launch of a new Center for Global Islamic Studies at the extremely leftist University of Florida in Gainesville may have been planned as a purely academic aair, but the announcements in the local and national media, including AP and Fox News, exhibited more than a purely academic interest in this event. To compare, one doesnt often see national media announcements about, lets say, a local center for the study of viruses unless the virus is Ebola. And just like with any news about Ebola studies, any news about studies of Islam attracts attention from the general public, who want to know if theres a hope for the cure, containment, and safety from danger. Unfortunately, these may not be the kind of Islamic Studies that answer those hopes. e Center opened on September 18th with a conference on Global Islam and the Quest for Public Space, headlined by none other than Georgetown professor John Esposito, a known apologist for radical Islam and founding director of the Saudi-sponsored Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding in the Walsh School of Foreign Service. A small group of protesters picketed the event outside the Pugh Hall on the university campus, with a dozen creative posters and a vinyl banner pointing out that John Esposito and the leader of ISIS both hold PhDs in Islamic Studies: Same goal, dierent tactics. e video of the protest can be seen online. e protest organizer, Randy McDaniels of ACT for America and the Counter-Terrorism Advisory Group, stated that our students certainly need to study Islam, as long as such studies are based on scientic objectivity and critical analysis. But the Centers for Islamic Studies: a Cold-War-Style Inuence Operation? Now at UF!

While many among the leftist faculty and the students were visibly upset with the protest, complete with occasional angry obscenities, a few others were interested in the message and asked for a yer. Some of them asked, Whats wrong with having an Islamic Studies Center, even if its nanced by foreign money? e short answer would have been to compare such a project to active measures undertaken in America by the KGB during the Cold War except that, unfortunately, most American students arent familiar with this term. eir knowledge of the Cold War has been thoroughly sanitized by the leftist faculty, especially if the professors are Marxists who used to root for the other side. e resulting perceived absence of the Soviet subversion, propaganda, disinformation, and other inuence operations inside the U.S. and around the world creates the impression of an ideologically neutral world, in which Americas response to protect liberty can very easily be misconstrued as imperialist aggression against the innocent. Ignorance about the enemy leads to confusion about ones own nations role in the world, regardless of the historical era or the current adversary. Whether we admit it or not, we are now in a new global conict that has many parallels with the Cold War; it is often fought by similar means and sometimes even by the same actors. Now, just as it was then, were up against a supremacist collectivist ideology whose goal is to establish a totalitarian utopian society on a global scale. e two deadly pipe dreams global communism and the global caliphate may have their dierences, but in practical terms they both view the United States as the main obstacle in their quest of world domination. ere is no reason why one cant learn from the others vast experience in subverting this country. Both foes have made claims that they stand for peace. e problem is that Marxists understand peace as the absence of opposition to socialism, just as the Islamist supremacists understand peace as the absence of opposition to Islam. Eventual peace will theoretically ensue once they subjugate the rest of the world to their totalitarian rule. In both cases, tolerance is a one-way street: everyone must be tolerant of their superior views, while they retain the right to self-righteous intolerance of the inferiors. Both ideologies generate a variety of wild-eyed conspiracy theories as a means to retain loyalty, boost morale, recruit new members, and demoralize their opponents. e Soviets didnt necessarily hate Americans or want to kill them o; they only wanted to convert our economic and political system for our own good. Likewise, the Islamists feel morally justied: they dont view terrorism as the murder of innocents, but rather as a collective punishment for being foolish in resisting Islam. is makes mass murder a moral virtue, absolving them of all sins and encouraging them to keep punishing us, the inferior fools, until we see the light and either convert or accept their supremacy. eyd rather convert than kill, so if we force their hand, its our own fault. Now, just as it was then, the U.S. is being drawn into ghting regional proxy wars while maintaining a semblance of dialogue with the main instigator, who remains visibly uninvolved but is pulling the strings of a vast network of loosely aliated non-governmental groups, from registered non-prots to armed gangs of cutthroats. e seeming lack of aliations, in both cases, is usually a cover for a centralized, coordinated eort. Cold War spy thrillers may show some exciting action, but the fact is that espionage wasnt even the main focus of the KGB operations in the U.S. According to retired KGB Maj. Gen. Oleg Kalugin, the heart and soul of Soviet intelligence was not intelligence collection, but subversion: active measures to weaken the West. e KGB maintained an extensive, sophisticated network of agents in the media, academia, government, and the cultural establishment. Acting on strategies designed in Moscow, they led a relentless, coordinated attack on this countrys institutions, often quite eectively demoralizing the population, undermining peoples condence in Americas political and economic systems, spreading rumors, falsehoods, and conspiracy theories, inuencing politicians, swaying public opinion, promoting some public gures and discrediting others, creating a positive image of the USSR, and so on. Fast forward to the fall of the USSR. What happened to these strategies, this system, its networks, and its methods? Did they just disappear? Not really. e KGB was never dismantled; it was renamed into FSB and one of its former lieutenant colonels, Vladimir Putin, is now running the country, using the old KGB network just as eectively to spread disinformation and to promote his imperial agenda. Even more disturbingly, this system has now replicated itself, producing an even more dangerous and aggressive clone. In 1960, the Soviet government had set up the so-called Patrice Lumumba Peoples Friendship University in Moscow, oering free higher education to students from the ird World, many of them from Muslim countries. In addition to regular student curriculum, the goal was to train and recruit agents who would then spread the ideas of Marxism in their home countries, and if possible, conduct active measures designed by their Moscow handlers. To be exact, the university received its African name in 1961. Patrice Lumumba was a pro-Soviet Congolese prime minister who earlier that year was removed from power in a coup dtat and shot by a ring squad. e international Left quickly made Lumumba into a martyr of anti-imperialist struggle; what they wont mention is that the coup and the execution were a drastic response to Lumumbas plans of bringing the Soviet troops to the Congo and potentially staging a major military conict in Africa, similar to the wars that the USSR fought in Korea, Vietnam, and later in Afghanistan. In this regard, the schools name was rather symbolic. According to KGB Major Vasili Mitrokhin, who defected to the West, e Universitys rst vice-rector and a number of its sta were KGB ocers who used the student body as a recruiting ground for ird World agents. e students were trained in the art of propaganda, inltration, and inuence operations. More specialized training, such as terrorist activities, was provided at locations in Baku, Odessa, Simferopol, and Tashkent. Carlos the Jackal, the notorious Marxist terrorist from Venezuela, who joined Palestinian terrorists and later converted to Islam, was one of the graduates, even though the school insists that he was expelled. A BBC News article titled Carlos the Jackal three decades of crime puts it this way: He began acting in the name of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine after leaving Patrice Lumumba University in Moscow, a notorious hotbed for recruiting foreign communists to the Soviet Union. Grand Ayatollah and the Supreme Leader of Iran, Ali Khamenei, is listed among notable graduates on the Universitys Wikipedia page, although he vehemently denies it. Another graduate is Timolen Jimnez, the leader of FARC a communist guerrilla army in Colombia, which is funded by drugs, kidnappings and extortion. Other notables include the President of Honduras, the President of Namibia, the President of the Central African Republic, a former President of Guyana, a former Jamaican MP, a leader of the Sudanese Socialist Democratic Union, and of all people Anna Chapman, a Russian intelligence ocer. Most importantly, the list of graduates includes todays Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas, Chairman of the PLO and President of the Palestinian National Authority, who received his Ph.D. in Moscow in 1982 after completing a thesis partly based on Holocaust denial. In a 2004 interview with FrontPage Magazine, Ion Mihai Pacepa, former acting chief of Communist Romanias espionage service, described the KGB role in setting up terrorist networks around the world and particularly in the Middle East, as well as persuading Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gadda to join the terrorist war against the US, with the added benet of using Iraqs and Libyas huge intelligence services that were being run by the KGB advisers and extended their tentacles to every corner of the earth. Says Pacepa: e PLO was dreamt up by the KGB, which had a penchant for liberation organizations. ere was the National Liberation Army of Bolivia, created by the KGB in 1964 with help from Ernesto Che Guevara. en there was the National Liberation Army of Colombia, created by the KGB in 1965 with help from Fidel Castro, which was soon deeply involved in kidnappings, hijackings, bombings and guerrilla warfare. In later years the KGB also created the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine, which carried out numerous bombing attacks on the Palestinian territories occupied by Israel. In 1964 the rst PLO Council, consisting of 422 Palestinian representatives handpicked by the KGB, approved the Palestinian National Charter a document that had been drafted in Moscow, Pacepa continues. e Palestinian National Covenant and the Palestinian Constitution were also born in Moscow, with the help of Ahmed Shuqairy, a KGB inuence agent who became the rst PLO chairman. e entire story of the Palestinian liberation, which has provoked a tidal wave of global Islamic extremism, has recognizable marks of a manufactured inuence operation. at includes media coverage in the Western press, which regurgitates regularly produced and coordinated disinformation. A lot of this dirty work was done initially by the Middle Eastern graduates of Patrice Lumumba Peoples Friendship University in Moscow, many of whom are still active in the eld. e school still functions today, having dropped Lumumba from its name and calling itself e Peoples Friendship University of Russia. Its page claims that as of now, more than 97,000 of its graduates work in approximately 170 countries around the world. Granted, not all of the graduating engineers, doctors, or agricultural experts have become KGB agents or even Marxists, but how many of them have? Even a small percentage of the total 97,000 means that thousands of agents with the knowledge of propaganda, inltration and inuence operations are currently active in the world today, particularly in the Middle East. If in the past some Muslim students may have embraced Marxism, they no longer do now. Even Carlos the Jackal has now converted to Islam. Todays Next Big ing is the Muslim Brotherhood, and thats where all the action is. e astounding sophistication and eectiveness of the Muslim Brotherhood in setting up networks of various front groups, inltrating the Western establishment, spreading disinformation, swaying public opinion, promoting some public gures and discrediting others, creating a positive image of their ideology, and other inuence operations are the evidence that the thousands of trained experts in these elds didnt just disappear. Even if they arent being run from Moscow today (some may still be), they are still using their knowledge and skills, as well as teaching a new generation of Islamic supremacists the intricacies of active measures. If the methods and techniques are eective, they dont get abandoned. Given the history, what are the chances that the new Center for Global Islamic Studies at the Florida University, christened by a Saudi-nanced, PLO-loving Georgetown professor, wont be turned into yet another center for the Muslim Brotherhoods inuence operations on American soil? http://www.frontpagemag.com/2014/oleg-atbashian/centersfor-islamic-studies-a-cold-war-style-inuence-operation/ Centers for Islamic Studies: a Cold-War-Style Inuence Operation?

BPR Director Curtis Stacy said the local football program is structured to have 7-8 year old teams, 9-10 year old teams, 11-12 year old teams and 13-14 year old teams, but the program lacked enough players for the 9-10 and 13-14 year olds. He said that resulted in four of the 9-10 year olds playing on the 11-12 year old teams against older kids from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Alachua County. e Alachua County kids were bigger and faster than the Bronson players. Our kids are very small, Stacy said. He said even the 11-12 years old Bronson kids have never played contact football before. Middle school players from Fort Clarke, Kanapaha, Newberry and Hawthorne played for the Alachua County teams. Stacy said Bronson is such a small market that 13-14 year olds often wind up playing high school ball, which dilutes the talent pool for that age group.

Chieand City Commission Pays for County Study of EMS Funding continued from page 1A e county says it wants assurances from the law rm that the special assessment for EMS funding wont be negatively aected by the addition of an ALS non-transport unit in Chieand. City Attorney Norm Fugate said the law rm, as he understands it, will make recommendations on how to structure the funding from the special assessment. e study will cost up to $11,000. e city agreed to take the money from the re departments reserve money and from other areas of the re budget, with the understanding the county reghting funds the city receives could not be used to pay for the study. Fugate said the money can only come from the citys property taxes, not from re funding. Fire Chief James Harris, who rst proposed adding an ALS non-transport truck to the re department, said the ALS unit will be worth the money. Its going to cost a little money, but the cost to benet ratio is high, Harris said. Chieand Fire Rescue currently has one full-time reghter/ paramedic and ve part-time paramedics, but the city is not licensed to use ALS equipment or medicines. City paramedics are permitted to use only Basic Life Support procedures and equipment. Harris said city re trucks arrive at medical emergencies well ahead of county ambulances most of the time, and his claim had been conrmed by the countys EMS sta. He said the ALS non-transport truck would give city paramedics the equipment and medicine to use advanced life support techniques to save lives and stabilize patients before the ambulance arrives. e county commission is oering the city no nancial support for the project and has made it clear the city must pay for every penny of the cost of starting an ALS non-transport unit in Chieand. e county holds the power to grant the city a license and it collects the Emergency Medical Service special assessment that funds the ambulance service. County Information Technology Chief Jose Esteves complied with a Levy County Journal public records request and produced an estimate of the amount of Emergency Medical Services funds collected within the Chieand city limits -$211,562.12. Esteves said it is a rough estimate, but an accurate one. Chieand is not entitled to any of the countys Emergency Medical Services funding. e Levy County Department of Public Safety administers a $5.9 million EMS budget for the county commission and controls the spending of EMS funds generated in Levy Countys eight incorporated cities and the unincorporated areas of the county. e Department of Public Safety also administers all the reghting funding for cities and rural areas. e power of the county commission to control EMS and re funding leaves cities with little leverage to negotiate for more money, or in the case of Chieand, to negotiate for licensing of an ALS non-transport unit or the funding to pay for it. e county commission said Chieand must pay all the costs of ALS non-transport and must prove that it has adequate funding to operate the truck around the clock before a license will be granted. Harris initially attempted to negotiate a compromise. He wanted to equip an ALS non-transport unit using grant funds and donations, and he would use his existing part-time paramedics and one full-time paramedic to operate the truck, but Public Safety Director David Knowles and County Medical Director Dr. Jason Jones objected, saying it would degrade the quality of medical care using part-time paramedics to operate the ALS truck. e county has two names for its ALS non-transport trucks. In recent months they have been calling the vehicles Battalion Trucks, but the vehicles are also called ALS non-transport. e trucks are not certied by the state as ALS non-transport and are not subject to random state inspections in the same way Chieands proposed ALS non-transport would be inspected. Chieand would operate the rst certied ALS non-transport in Levy County. e Battalion Trucks carry spare parts for ambulances and many of the medicines and pieces of equipment used on an ambulance, and the trucks are driven by experienced paramedics. Knowles said they function in much the same way as an ALS non-transport. He said the reason he hasnt certied the two trucks is because the state said it wasnt necessary. Walker said she wants to get past the controversy and focus on bringing an ALS non-transport to Chieand. She said the citizens want the service and the city has indicated that it wants to operate an ALS non-transport truck in the city. She told her fellow commissioners the county commission did not vote against ALS non-transport for Chieand. ey voted against paying for half of the study. Sometimes we have to pay for what we ask for, she said. District 4 County Commission candidate Jaime Grin encouraged city commissioners to pay for the study. He said it was his impression when he attended last weeks county commission meeting that commissioners were concerned that the city was asking the county to fund half of the $11,000 study. Grin felt paying for the study would be a good faith commitment to the project.
Moving their record to 5-0 the Williston Middle School football team defeated Mebane from Alachua 28-8. e Red Devil 1st team defense held the Mebane oense to -38 yards until the giving way to the reserves in the fourth quarter. e oense produced 4 touchdowns and two conversions to bring the victory. Jeremiah James led all rushers with 68 yards on 12 attempts including an extra two-point conversion. Mike Robinson added 40 yards on three carries, Jonathon Davis had 24 yards on ve carries with a touchdown. C.J. Strange had 18 yards on ve carries. C.J. Strange was 7/11 for 53 yards and a conversion. e leading receiver was Blake Hall with two catches for 34 yards and a rush for 7 yards. Another highlight was a 32-yard kicko return by Jarrett Jerrells. e defense was led by Jarrett Jerrells with 5 tackles, Octavious Lee, Rodre Parker, Mike Robinson, Jonathan Davis, and Joey Sistrunk each had 4 tackles, and Layton Van Blaircum recovered a fumble and had two tackles for loss. Head Coach Greg Hamilton says, We are seeing improvements in both of our lines. e assistant coaches (Tom Keeler, Kyle Spencer, Trace Stankunsas, and Calvin Strange) deserve credit for their hard work. We are becoming a more complete team. Remember Williston Middle School will be hosting the Championship on October 21st at 6:00 PM at Booster Field. By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterFive fumbles and an interception slowed the Bronson attack Friday night in Pierson, but not enough to spare the Taylor High School Wildcats from a 30-10 drubbing at hands of the Eagles. Coach Cameron Porch told the Eagles they couldnt make that many mistakes against Hilliard Friday night at home. e game is a district matchup Bronson needs to win in its quest for a state playo bid. Game time is 7:30 p.m. It was pathetic. Im disgusted, Porch said afterward of the Taylor High School game. We had ve fumbles and one interception. Two of the fumbles were inside the ve yard line. Porch conceded Bronsons defense saved the day, playing through its oensive mistakes. e Eagles scored on defense by recovering a fumble in the Wildcat end zone, an indication of the competitive nature of the Eagle defense. But Porch said the defense needs to stien considerably and give less ground, and Eagle runners need to grip the ball much tighter. We bent a lot on defense. You cant toy around with bending but not breaking, he said. Im proud of the fact that they played bad and still won the game, but we need to think farther ahead. Bronson is 4-2 heading into the Hilliard game. Bronson started the game with a back breaking 95-yard kicko return by David Dees, the latest Bronson runner to scorch the turf with his speed and power. Bronson led. Garry Mitchell ran for the two-point conversion, giving Bronson an 8-0 lead with 11:41 left in the rst quarter. e Wildcats intercepted late in the second quarter deep in their own territory. e Eagles mounted their most punishing defense of the night with two big sacks. e second resulted in a fumble recovery in the end zone by Patrick Van Patten for an Eagle touchdown. Garry Mitchell ran for the two-point conversion, giving Bronson a 16-0 lead with 1:40 left in the half. Taylor High mounted its best drive of the night after the Bronson touchdown but was forced to settle for a eld goal. But the Wildcats caught Bronson napping on an onside kick that followed. e Wildcats scored on the next play, a 45-yard touchdown run, leaving the score 1610 with 6:30 left in the second quarter. A sack by Justis Durden set up the nal score of the half for Bronson, a 46-yard touchdown run by Dees with 1:05 left in the half. e two-point conversion run by Mitchell left the score 22-10 with 59 seconds left in the half. e Wildcats managed to move the ball close enough for a eld goal attempt that failed. A Bronson fumble midway through the fourth quarter gave the Wildcats new life, but the drive ended when Brandon Partain intercepted the ball on fourth and eight at the Bronson 14-yard line. e Eagles drove to the Wildcat ve-yard line before fumbling and giving the ball back to the Wildcats. But Bronson prevailed once more. A pass was broken up by the Eagles on fourth and six at the Wildcat 11. e Eagles, always an opportunistic team, handed the ball to speedster Montrez Jackson who scored on a 6-yard blast. Jackson ran for the two-point conversion to give Bronson a 30-10 lead with 4:09 left. e Wildcats fumbled on the drive that followed and Van Patten recovered for Bronson. e Eagles drove down the eld in deliberate fashion, running out the clock. Quarterback Jason Ranalli took a knee deep in Wildcat territory rather than attempting another score.Bronsons Defense Prevails in 30-10 Rout of Pierson-Taylor David Dees (center) breaks loose for a 95-yard touchdown return on the kicko of the game.

Photo by Terry Witt.By Terry Witt Senior Sta Writer Aspiring pro golfer Alden Davis shot 7 under par over the weekend to win the 37th Annual Chieand Golf and Country Club Rye Grass Tournament. e 20-year-old Chieand High School graduate is a twotime Rye Grass champion, having won the tournament by 9 strokes in 2013. Davis entered the nal round Sunday with a 4-shot lead over Ty Gorton and remained steady throughout the day, knocking down a 10-foot birdie putt on 17 to extend his lead to 5 shots on the day. He might have distanced himself even more from Gorton and Jamie Whitehurst except for multiple near misses putting. If the hole had been a half inch wider they would have fallen, he said. A lot of the putts just burned the edges. I hit real well. I just couldnt get it to fall. Gorton and Whitehurst, a Williston native, nished with two-day totals of 142, but Whitehurst was bumped out of second place when tournament ocials went back on the card to look hole by hole to see who should win second place. Whitehurst hit thunderous tee shots on the nal three holes trying to make up ground, but it wasnt enough to catch Davis who proved to be unappable on the nal holes. e Rye Grass tournament gave away $12,000 in prizes. e 144 golfers were treated to a seafood dinner. On Saturday night the Island Room in Cedar Key catered the tournament with a meal. Chieand businessman Jim Smith, the only remaining charter member who has played in all 37 tournaments, nished in third place in the Gold Flights for golfers 65 years of age and older. Smith was among the volunteers who built Chieand Golf and Country Club. One of the most avid golfers at the club, Dan Whitehurst, passed away from a heart attack while golng at Chieand Golf and Country Club a few years ago Whitehurst was also instrumental in building the Chieand course because Whitehurst Construction loaded the heavy equipment to the club to clear and build the fairways and greens. A golf scramble named for Whitehurst took place during the tournament. e Rye Grass Tournament takes its name from golf tournaments held in the early days to raise money for the planting of rye grass on the greens during the winter months.Looking Toward e ProsDavis said he is pretty much a scratch golfer, even though thats not what it looked like at the Rye Grass. Its hard to say scratch when you shoot 7 under, he said. Davis is hoping to work his way into a pro golng tournament. He has been playing quite a few minitournaments as an amateur, facing the best aspiring pros in the state. He said a 72 score at Chieand Golf and Country Club works out to a 78 score on the longer, tougher courses he plays on. He played college golf at Southeast University in Lakeland for a year and made the Deans List, but he found it dicult to nd time for studies and still play on the college circuit. He decided to hone his skills in amateur tournaments. He appears to be at the cusp of turning pro. He played against former amateur Matt Every in one tournament. I lost to him by four strokes. A month later he won a PGA tournament and a million and a half dollars, Davis said. Davis was team captain and lower scorer on his Chieand High School team. Chieand won the district title by a stroke one year when Davis sank a 6-foot putt. e rst through third place Rye Grass winners in other ights: First Flight: R. McCrackin 148, J. Jenkins 150 and P.

Josh prepared an original Peanut Butter Apple Quesadilla to win the cooking competition today. As Student Chef Ambassador, he will be invited to attend nutrition events in the region and will serve as a peer inuencer to help increase the knowledge of nutrition and healthy eating in the community. Our goal is to encourage Floridas children to learn how to incorporate healthy foods into their meals, and have fun while they are doing that, said Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam. Studies show that kids who have a hand in preparing their meals are more likely to eat healthy foods and choose fruits and vegetables over snacks and junk food. Nine students in Northwest Florida were selected from students throughout the region who submitted recipes to be judged on nutrition, presentation/appeal, and originality. ese qualifying round winners were invited to cook their recipe for a panel of judges at Publix Aprons Cooking Schools. One winner was picked in each grade category (4th-5th, 6th-8th and 9th-12th). e high school winner is the regional Student Chef Ambassador. e judges were Heather Fuselier who writes the weekly Healthy Heather blog in Tallahassee; Randi Atwood, the entertainment and features editor of the Tallahassee Democrat; Chef Levi Newsome who began cooking professionally at the age of 15 under a classically trained chef, and worked the next seven years in the food industry from dishwasher to line cook to waiting tables and is currently with the Publix Aprons Cooking School in Tallahassee; and Chef Paula Kendrick, kids chef for the Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
