County planning board says okay to nukes


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Progress Energy Florida won county planning commission approval
. Monday night for a nuclear generation facility that would power thousands
of homes in central Florida and produce more than $100 million in tax
revenue annually for the Levy County Commission and Levy County
School Board.
Planning commissioners voted 4-1, with board member Toni Collins
casting the lone negative vote, to recommend approval of a special'
exception permit that would allow construction and operation of two
nuclear reactors on 3,100 acres in southwest Levy County.
The total estimated cost of building The Levy Energy Complex,
including transmission lines, would be $17 billion.
Progress FsnerpL Florida o\v ns about 5,200 acres stretching all the way
to County Road 40 in Ingli
The planning commission also approved a change to a comprehensive
plan allowing 19.88 acres to be developed into 'an educational and
training facility along U.S. 19 near the proposed nuclear reactor site. The


4,000-square-foot educational facility will provide tours on nuclear and
alternative energies to visitors and school children. The, 80,000 square-
foot training center will include a 400-seat auditorium and a mock up of
a nuclear power plant control room to train future nuclear power plant
employees.
Levy County Commissioners will review the planning commission's
recommendations beginning at 6:30 p.m., Sept. 2, the same Olight they
discuss their special property assessments for ambulance, solid waste,
fire and roads. None of the assessments are being raised. Commissioners
have final authority to reject or approve land uses for the reactors and the
educational and training facility.
Collins said she voted against granting the special exception permit
because Progress Energy Florida was late delivering important, documents
to planning, commissioners. County Attorney Anne Bast Brown said
thq late documents were the revised conditions attached to the special
exception permit, a hard copy of a Powerpoint slide presentation given to
commissioners, excerpts from the site certification application and a letter

County braces for Election Day


Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell shows
some of the ballot styles voters will be see on
election day.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Supervisor of Elections. Connie Asbell
finished mailing out sample ballots Friday
in preparation for the upcoming primary
election on Aug. 26, which could produce a
big voter turnout.
Asbell has received 2,500 absentee ballot
requests and 900 of them have been returned.
It's a sign of high voter interest.
Absentee ballots are used by voters who
plan to be out of the county on election day.
The ballots are' counted on election night.
Absentees sometimes decide the winner of a
close race.
Another group of early bird voters will
cast their ballots Monday between 8:30 a.m.
and 4:30 p.m. at the elections office. They are
the so-called "early voters."


'Stabbed them in the back'

Former postal clerk has harsh words for workers


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A postal clerk who resigned
last week from the Chiefland
Post Office said she left her
$40,000-a-yearjob to keep her
personal integrity and leave
behind the internal turmoil and
false allegations that she says
led to the suspensions without
pay of two coworkers.
Kim Poole said she is aware 0o
that some people still employed with the
post office have, for the most part, made
"malicious allegations" against two fellow
employees who are now being investigated
by the Postal Service.
Poole said the same employees who
turned on Bonnie George and Debbie
Hamberger and "stabbed them in the back"
once pretended to be their friends and*
actually smiled, joked and talked to them on
a daily basis at the Chiefland Post Office.


With that in mind, Poole said
she realized that the employees
who turned on George and
Hamberger could do the same
to her. She said they might
turn something around that she
said, or try to get her fired or
criminally prosecuted in the
same way they have done to,
George and Hamberger.
Poole said she could not
pretend that these employees
e did nothing wrong.or that they
could potentially lodge false allegations
against her.
"No job is worth losing your integrity
for," Poole said. "There is no way these
people can look at themselves in the
mirror every morning and have a sense
of pride. They should cover their heads
in shame. Some people just don't have a
conscience."

See Poole, Page 4


Asbell will set up early voting booths in
the lobby of the elections office on the east
side of the courthouse. The elections office
is the only site for early voting, and Aug.
11 is the only day to cast an early ballot.
Asbell said the practice has been popular in
the past.
"We've had them standing in line all the
way to the corner," she said.
The sheriff's race, clerk of court and one
Levy County Commission District 3 race
will be decided on Aug. 26. Asbell, who had
no opposition this year, said there is no truth
to the rumor that she plans to retire in mid
term and turn the office over to a successor.
"I'm going to see out my term," she
said.

Distemper alert at

Levy Animal Shelter

BRONSON Local animal services officials are
urging area dog owners to vaccinate their pets and not
let them run free following the discovery of the canine
viral disease "distemper" among dogs at the Levy
County Animal Shelter.
Several puppies have died from complications
caused by the disease in recent days, including some
adopted from.the shelter by 9a local rescue group.
Mike Weatherford, director of LCAS, said the
disease did not originate at the shelter, but rather from
dogs being brought in there. With animals in the county
not being vaccinated, he said, infected dogs brought in
to the kennels are infecting other dogs.
Although cats are not susceptible to Canine
Distemper Virus, other animals are, including foxes
and raccoons. Weatherford added that the disease is not
transferable to humans.
Weatherford said a couple of specific areas in
Levy County are to be considered "hot spots" for the
disease.
"Basically anywhere around the Manatee Springs
State Park area." he said. "Also, there are a lot of stray

County says no to rezoning request


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

An attempt by an Inglis area landowner to change his
land use to "commercial" failed to win any Levy County
Commission support Tuesday.
Responding to the concerns of neighbors, commissioners
said the commercial land use category sought by Darryl
Diamond would have allowed him to use the land for just
about any commercial purpose, including a lounge.
Diamond had requested an amendment to the county
comprehensive plan that would have changed the land use
on four parcels bordering U.S. 19 from urban residential to
commercial.
Commissioners said they wouldn't mind generating
new jobs and businesses with commercial zoning, but that
type of land use has to be in the right place.
"I don't want to see nightclubs and bars. I want to see
industry," said Commissioner Tony Parker.
Parker said Diamond could have resold the property
to someone else as soon as commissioners gave him
commercial zoning.
Diamond, a realtor, owns 3.6 acres of land fronting U.S.
19 about a quarter mile north of the Inglis city limits. The
property is zoned urban low density residential. Diamond
wanted it changed to the commercial-2 zoning category.
Neighbors Steve Anderson, Claudia Anderson and Kris
Seletos objected to the rezoning plan.
Steve Anderson said he saw no reason why Diamond
would request C-2 zoning when he wanted to build mini
storage units and possibly a realtor's office.
Anderson said his main concern was that C-2 zoning
allows lounges. He said he doesn't need a bar in his
backyard.
"You all remember the Crossroads Bar and topless go-
go?" he said.
Anderson said the property was also wet. He said his
wife took a photograph a year ago showing standing water
on the property.
Diamond said he had no plans to sell the property nor
did he have plans to build a bar at the site.
But. Commission Chairman Sammy Yearty said C-2
zoning gave Diamond "too much variability."
"If you put a zoning out there that has so many uses, the
,zoning is stuck forever," Yearty said.
He added, "I don't want this property to go into a bar or

Bronson rescinds vote

on irrigation system

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

After unanimously endorsing two previous motions
to install an automated irrigation system for the town
soccer fields, the Bronson Council reversed itself
Monday, voting 3-1 to pledge the same amount of
money for other repairs in the park.
"I went out to the park and saw that there were a lot
of other things that need to be done," Councilmember
Berlon Weeks said as he rescinded his previous vote
to upgrade the soccer fields' watering system. He
asked other members to do the same.
Councilmembers Melody LaFlam and Aaron
Edmondson agreed with Weeks, voting to pledge
the money to other park repairs, including broken
windows and fences. The park's icemachine may
also need to be replaced, at an estimated $2000 cost.
Weeks suggested trying to repair it before the money
is spent on a new machine.
"The soccer fields look great," Bronson Youth
League President Garry Mitchell said. "I'm in major
support," he said of the Council's new decision.
"It's not just one area that could use an upgrade,"
Mitchell added. "The whole grounds need work it's
really a matter of grooming."
Bronson Vice Mayor Beatrice Mongo cast the lone
dissenting vote.
"I think a new sprinkler system is a good idea,"
she said. "It would have been done at a fraction of the
(usual) cost." Bids ranged from $4,700 to $17,000.
The winning bid came from a youth league coach in a
nearby town who had offered to do the work at cost.
BronsonYouth League SoccerDirectorMaxAguirre
said the lack of proper irrigation has compacted the
ground, hindering grass growth and making the field
unsafe for players.
"If the soccer fields were straight an4 level I
wouldn't be complaining, and neither Would the
kids," he said.
Due to the labor-intensive design of the current
system, the fields are not getting the water they need,
he added. "It currently takes eight hours minimum to
water three fields."
"My proposal came with an economic package
and theirs came with an expenditure package," he
said regarding his -previously endorsed proposal
that addressed the potential to bring traveling soccer
toumameidits'td the&"pak' if the fields were in good
condition. The tournaments would bring an economic
surge to the town of Bronson, according to Aguirre,
raising money with concessions as well as attracting
patrons to local businesses. The money raised could
then be used for repairs to other parts of the park.
"The fields are in no shape to have a national league
use our facility," he said in ain interview Tuesday. "But
they could be with enough water and aeration."

Poole, from Page 1


Poole said she knows what her co-workers said about George and Hamberger because
she was given an internal memo by the Postal Service that contained the co-worker
comments. Poole, George and Hamberger were interviewed on July 25 in Gainesville
in connection with an internal investigation that has focused on George and.Hamberger. -
Poole said all three received the same internal memo and statements of co-workers that
day.
Poole said when she arrived back at work on July 28 and began mingling once again
with the workers who had made the statements against George and Hamberger, she knew
she could not block out the knowledge of what her co-workers had done or what they
could do to her.
"These are not the people that I can work with," Poole said in a written statement to
the Journal. "Imagine going into work every day with this type of co-worker, not knowing
what kind of lies they may say about you; how they may turn anything you say into
something vicious to try to get you fired or worse, criminally prosecuted."
George and Hamberger were suspended without pay on May 29 on an allegation of
misconduct. The postal service said it is investigating whether the two clerks and Poole
invited a fourth co-worker to meet with them in Usher Forest. George is accused of
verbally threatening to beat up the fourth co-worker if she didn't shut up. Poole, George
and Hamberger said the allegation is untrue.
Earlier on May 29, postal service inspectors had escorted George out of the post office
pending the outcome of a different investigation. George, Poole and Hamberger' said
they were aggressively interviewed by postal inspectors that day and their lockers were
searched. They said they went to Usher Forest just to make sure everyone was okay.
Poole said postal inspectors apparently had a letter signed by four postal employees
who said they were not intimidated or afraid of George. Given those statements, she said
she has no idea why George was escorted from the facility.
Poole said the allegation that George later threatened the co-worker at the forest is
not true. She said all four women who went to the forest were longtime friends and they
hugged when they first arrived at the forest, she said. The woman who claims she was
threatened suggested they take a walk through the forest because her doctor wanted her
to do more walking. Poole said they walked to the waterfall and no further. She said they
chatted and left. She said no threats were made.
Poole said if the co-worker had indeed felt intimidated, she could have driven straight
to the Chiefland Police Department a short distance away and filed a complaint. But Poole
said nothing happened and no complaint was ever filed with police.. Poole said when
she called the post office the next morning the woman who claimed she was threatened
cried to her on the phone about being alone. Hamberger and George were suspended and
couldn't work. Poole had gone home on sick leave. And Pdole said backup help hadn't
arrived. Poole said the woman felt too much work had been thrust on her shoulders.
Poole said she thinks that may be why the woman came up with the story about being
threatened'.
Poole said Hamberger, who has worked at the Chiefland Post Office for 33 years, and
George, who has worked for 12 years, take a great deal of pride in their jobs. She said they
have enough pride to have taken the time over the years to know the rules and regulations
of the Postal Service and to know every aspect of post office work.

"They worked to protect the USPS (United States Postal Service) and the customers.
that did business at the Chiefland Post Office," Poole wrote. "Most people that came in
would rather ask Debbie a question than the postmaster at the time. Why? Because if
Debbie did not already know the answer she would find it and in a timely manner, not to
mention the fact that she had become a fixture at the post office, being there longer than
anyone in the office."
She added in the written statement, "So now it brings us to the point that the USPS
would rather you did not know their own rules and regulations. These girls are being
punished for knowing their jobs too well. As long as you are making a profit for them you
are an outstanding employee. As soon as you catch them with 'their hands in the cookie
jar,' you've got to go."
Poole was referring to the complaint George and Hamberger filed when former.
postmaster Vicki Smith attempted to impose late charges on post office box customers
who didn't immediately renew. The standing policy had been to give post office customers
a 10-day grace period after their post office box expired, before they were charged a late
fee. George and Hamberger said Smith changed the policy and eliminated the grace period
in violation of postal rules. She had to rescind her decision and apologize to customers for
the mistake, according to George and Hamberger. They said whistleblower activities such
as this led to the current investigation.
Poole said she doesn't know whether current postal employees were coerced into
making false allegations against Hamberger and George, but she said they should be
ashamed of going along with a plan "to absolutely ruin two of their co-workers' lives."
"How far will this type of person go? Where will it end? They have went way past
'bullying'; they have went for the kill. Who could work side by side with this type of:
people. Not I," Poole wrote.

Volunteers help make terrorism exercise a success

By Rick Burnham
Editor

Local law enforcement and emergency management officials are applauding the efforts
of more than 100 volunteers who helped stage a mock terrorist attack at Williston High
School July 29.
Mark Johnson, director of emergency management for Levy County, said the exercise
was one of a series of assessments designed to identify the strengths and weaknesses of
local, county and state agencies, and their ability to work together. The scenario unfolded
with a group of simulated gunmen equipped with chemical weapons inside the school, he
said.
The exercise was conducted by Emergency Response Educators and Consultants, Inc.,
out of Ocala, and funded by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security, Johnson
added.
"We contract with the Withlacoochee Regional Planning Council to support us when
we go out to subcontract for specialty companies to do an exercise," he said.
The exercise included elements of a number of different law enforcement and
emergency planning officials, including the Levy County Sheriff's Office, the Williston
Police Department and the Williston City Fire Department.
The exercise provided valuable insight into emergency planning, Johnson said. He
added that county officials train consistently with a wide variety of scenarios.
RG ,.". "'.'It could be for anything from a Search and Rescue, to a Hazardous Materials exercise,
to dealing with something on a much larger scale, such as a hurricane.
He added that it could not have happened without dozens of volunteers who showed
up to assist.
"It was amazing we had more than 100 volunteers," he said. "Our people were able
to train our volunteers specifically for what we needed, and it allowed our emergency
Photos by Steve Jarb response groups to have a little more realism in what they do. It enhances the scenarios so
Photos by Steve Jarboe that our people are better able to train. It also builds relationships between the county, the
municipalities, and the state and federal response teams when they are involved."
"Volunteerism in Levy County is incredible as far as Emergency Management exercises
are concerned."

from the state's Division of Historical Resources. The documents were provided as the
meeting started or were handed out during the meeting. Commissioners generally want
documents in advance of the meeting to give them time to read the material.
Gail T. Simpson, manager of public policy and constituency relations for Progress
Energy, said company officials had met with Development Services Director Rob Corbitt
Friday and gave him the revisions to the letter containing the permit conditions.
Final county approval doesn't mean the project is ready for construction. Progress
Energy Florida submitted a combined license application with the federal Nuclear
Regulatory Commission on Friday. The company also has permits pending with the
Florida Department of Environmental Protection, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and
Southwest Florida Water Management District.
But the Levy County Planning Commission's approval was a plus for the company.
County commission approval would be another major step forward in the approval
process. The company can't proceed with the project without county land use approval.
Brian Martin of Fishkind & Associates told planning commissioners The Levy Energy
Complex would generate an estimated $51.6 million in property tax revenue annually for
the Levy County Commission and an estimated $52.8 million in property tax revenue for
the Levy County School Board.
The company is planning to withdraw 100 million gallons of water daily from the
Cross Florida Barge Canal to cool the two nuclear reactors. The water that is not, lost
to evaporation will be discharged through a pipeline that runs back to the Crystal River
Nuclear Power Plant outfall canal. The warm water will be released into the Gulf of
Mexico. The two reactors combined would generate 3,000 megawatts of power.
The only resident to speak against the project was Robert Smith, who described himself
as the closest resident to the proposed nuclear power plant.
"I'm just scared of it being in my backyard," Smith said. "We're concerned more than
anything about our health."
Smith said he was also afraid the plant would devalue their property when he and
his wife decide to sell. Smith said his property backs up to the Goethe State Forest. The
nuclear power facility also borders the forest.
"I don't know of anyone, other than Progress Energy, who wants to live there," he
said.
Resident James Barker questioned Progress Energy Florida's conclusion that the site
has no historic features. He said old turpentine stills may be found on the property.
Dan Hilliard, president of Withlacoochee Area Residents, said the organization wants
Progress Energy Florida to move the location of its water intake pipe for the plant at least
1,600 yards west of the proposed location to allow the reconnection of the Withlacoochee
River.
Hilliard said lower water flow in the river is allowing saltwater to ruin the river's
ecosystem. He said the saltwater is moving farther and farther eastward, killing cypress
trees in the process. He said the way to stop the saltwater is to reconnect the river and
increase the flow in the lower river.
He said Progress Energy Florida's water intake pipe would be situated near the locks of
Lake Rousseau and would make it difficult to reconnect the river. The river was severed
years ago and the entire flow of the river runs from the lake through a bypass spillway
dam to form the lower Withlacoochee River through Inglis and Yankeetown.
Hilliard said W.A.R. would like to create a water impoundment area out of a portion of
the canal below Lake Rousseau. The impoundment would capture enough water flowing
through the main dam to provide a higher flow to the lower river.
On the positive side, the company said it plans to use as-much directional lighting as
possible at the nuclear powerp.pliat. ;Djrectional lighting prevents the light from spilling
onto neighboring properties. It also-decreases light pollution in the night sky.


Bronson Council approves merger

of neighboring fire departments


Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

The Bronson Town Council voted
Monday to move ahead with the fire
department merger between Bronson
and Otter Creek, approving a tentative
contract in a divided decision.
Bronson Attorney Steven Warm
and Otter Creek Attorney Brent Baris
drafted the agreement between the two
municipalities, which will now be sent
to Levy County Commission Attorney
Anne Bast Brown to draw up the final
contract.
The contract, to be signed by the
mayors of each town, will incorporate
Otter Creek into Bronson's fire
district and will automatically renew
annually, unless either party, chooses
to discontinue the arrangement. Otter
Creek's Fire Department budget from
the county will be transferred and
district lines will be redrawn to make
the entire area part of the Bronson Fire
and Rescue district.
Also included in the contract is a
clause allowing either party to terminate
the agreement at any time upon 90 days
notice.
"I appreciate both towns work -ng"


,together," Bronson Fire Chief Rick
Lombardo said. "It's going to be a good
marriage good for the citizens of both
communities."
The merger allows Otter Creek to
receive an ISO rating, which is used
by insurance companies to determine
rates, potentially saving homeowners a
significant amount on premiums.
Both departments will benefit from
the merger by creating a budget that
will most likely allow for paid day-time
staff to cover the combined district.
Manned stations result in equipment
kept ready and checked daily, as well as
provide guaranteed response to calls, said
Lombardo.
The motion was opposed by Vice
MayorBeatrice Mongo, who has remained
strong in her opposition to the merger
since discussion began in January.
"I just got a lot ofreservations," Mongo
said after Monday night's meeting. "I
asked him a lot of questions and I haven't
got definite answers."
Mongo's concerns for liability and
financial obligations remain the primary
reasons for her dissention.
"This is double trouble to me," she
said. "I'm looking out for the town it's'
a greater liability ' ''

ON AUGUST 26 VOTE TO RE-ELECT JOHNNY SMITH AS YOUR SHERIFF


Over the past 8 years, it truly has been a sincere honor and a privilege to serve as your Levy County Sheriff. I have 26 years of dedicated local law enforcement
experience. Before being elected as your Sheriff in 2000, I served with the Chiefland and W-illiston Police Departments; however the majority of my. experience is
with the Levy County Sheriff's Office. Professionally, I have served in the patroldivision and criminal investigations division, working major case crimes. In
1997, I graduated from the 189th Session of the F.B.I. National Academy, currently serve on the Criminal Justice Advisory Board of Central Florida Community
College. On a personal note, I am married to Marcia Asbell Smith of Bronson and wve have one son, Landon, age 12. We attend the First Baptist Church of Bron-
son. Your Sheriff's Office is in great shape! We have worked hard over the past eight years to meet the needs of our county as it relates to law enforcement and our
accomplishments are many. Some of these include:

Drug Task Force-This unit has maintained an extremely aggressive stance in it's fight against illegal drugs making record-breaking arrests.
Decreased Crime Rate-Since 2006, the crime rate in Levy County has decreased 16.6 %; robberies are do\n 40 %; burglaries and thefts are down by 21 %
respectively.
Inmate Work Crew-Initiated an inmate work crew, which has cleaned up more than 90,000 lbs. of trash from the county roadways since implementation
several months ago.
"Child Lures"- Started the sexual abuse and abduction prevention program to help educate our children and parents on the tactics that offenders / predators
use to "lure" and hurt our children. Partnering with the school system, the program is currently taught by our School Resource Officers in Levy County
Schools every year as part of the curriculum.
Sexual Offender/Predator Checks-Our deputies are dispatched every .30 days to validate and verify addresses of known registered sexual offenders/ preda-
tors' so the public can know their whereabouts. (State law only requires this every 6 months.) We have gone above and beyond this requirement.
Business Watch/A2. Watch-In an effort to create a closer working relationship with business owners and. the agricultural community, we created and imple-
mented'a "Business Watch" and an "Ag Watch" program. These programs have been extremely successful and a "win win" for our county.
Corrections Accreditation-Through hard work our jail has been awarded the "Florida Corrections Accreditation and is 100% compliant with the "Florida
Model Jail S4andards" and is being ran extremely efficient.
Grant Acquisitions-Many of the programs implemented have been funded through the acquisition of almost 1 million dollars in state and federal grants.

These are just a few of our accomplishments over the past eight years. I am extremely proud of our record. It is through Strong Leadership and Good
Management Practices; and having the right people heading up the different divisions of your Sheriff's Office, coupled with the hard work and dedication of the
fine men and women who work here, that we have accomplished this success. We will continue everyday to build upon this success to meet the needs of our citi-
zens who we are entrusted to serve. In conclusion, I am humbled that the people of Levy County have entrusted me to serve as your Sheriff for the past eight
years. I again ask for your support and vote on August 26th.
Sincerely,

Chiefland arrests


Police say man beat girlfriend with stick


Teen driving program

will make roads safer

I have received several
comments from citizens
questioning why deputies
are hauling golf carts behind
marked patrol cars this
summer. The purpose of the
golf carts is to aid in the Teen
DriverImprovementProgram,
an important program that
was offered to Levy County
students free of charge.
Unfortunately, every week
we read of student drivers
in the United States who SH ERIFo S
are involved in automobile CORNER
crashes resulting in traffic
fatalities. The Levy County SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
Sheriff's Office received a
grant from the Florida Department of Transportation toh
fund the Levy County Teen Driver Improvement Program.
The grant paid for the purchase of golf carts, trailers and
traffic cones at no cost to the Levy County taxpayers.
In 2005, Levy County ranked second in the state in
the number of teens involved traffic crashes for counties
having a population of 0 50,000. It is my endeavor to
reduce the number of fatalities. through.the education the
Teen.Driver Improvement Program offers. I am pleased
to report that in our county, 225 students successfully
completed the program.
The goal of this program is to educate teen drivers to
the dangers of aggressive driving, distracted driving, and
impaired driving. It also emphasizes the importance of
seat belt use. Together, these four issues have been found
to be the major causes of teen involved crashes, injuries
and fatalities.
The program consists of classroom instruction; videos,
Powerpoint presentations, and hands-on time during
which the students will drive golf carts through a course
to learn first hand the dangers of the choices they make
while driving. This is a graphic presentation that shows the
student the human consequences of their driving choices.
I am pleased that the Levy County Sheriff's Office was
able to provide this to our teen drivers. If we are able to
save only one life, the program will prove successful.

Police find Chiefland couple hiding in concealed bedroom


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A Chiefland couple was found concealed in a hidden bedroom of their home on July 11 after
officers broke through the door to arrest the husband on a felony warrant, police said.
Chistopher Makatura, 34, and his wife, Martha Voncile Makatura, 26, 11932 N.W. 60h St.,
Chiefland were arrested on numerous criminal charges, among them felony child neglect. The
neglect charge was filed after the couple admitted to city police that Christopher Makatura had
used illegal street drugs at the home in front of their children and she knew about it.
Officers arrived at the Makatura home to serve a felony warrant on Christopher Makatura.
He was wanted on a charge of felony battery with two prior convictions.
Investigators could hear a dog barking inside the home and someone telling the dog to be
quiet, but no one would answer the door. Officers decided to forcibly enter the home by breaking
through the door.
After police entered the home, the family remained hidden from view despite officers
announcing loudly that Christopher Makatura was under arrest. Following a search of the home,
a suspicious wall panel was found. An officer pushed on the panel and found it pushed inward a
bit. Something was holding it closed.
Makatura announced at that point he was coming out of the hiding place, which turned out


to be'thE bedr6om he and his wife shared. Inside the bedroom were Maitha Makatura and their
th ree iall c h ild re n ': .. . i . I ," . > 1
Officers found a small pot on an end table in the living room containing marijuana and several
devices used to smoke the marijuana. Martha Makatura said the marijuana and smoking devices
belonged to her husband. She said she did not smoke due to the fact that she gets regularly
tested by the, partnership for strong families. Christopher Makatura agreed the marijuana and
paraphernalia belonged to him.
However, when Martha Makatura said she was aware of the presence of the drugs in the
home and that her husband smoked the marijuana in the presence of the children, both she and
her husband were arrested on charges of felony neglect. The marijuana was in a place that could
easily be reached by the children, an arrest report said.
Officers also found Christopher Makatura had personal belongings, at the home in violation
of a curt order that prohibited him from living in the home with his wife and the children. He
was arrested on a warrant for battery with two previous convictions, for misdemeanor marijuana
possession, possession of drug paraphernalia and felony child neglect.
Martha Makatura was arrested for resisting arrest without violence. That was, because she
had concealed herself from officers when they broke into the home to arrest her husband. She
was also arrested for felony child neglect. The arrest report said Christopher Makatura's bondi
'was $5.

It takes a community to control animal disease


By Cynda Crawford
Clinical Assistant Professor
University of Florida

T he recent disease outbreak at Levy County
Animal Services can be summed up by
paraphrasing the saying "It takes a village."
It takes a community. It takes a community
to create the problems associated with the sheltering and
the disposition of homeless companion animals. Levy
County Animal Services is tasked by the community
with accommodating the castoffs of irresponsible animal
ownership, including free-roaming strays, abandoned or
unwanted pets, and animals suffering from cruelty and
neglect.
Their mission includes reducing pet overpopulation by
spaying and neutering, reuniting lost pets with owners,
providing shelter for homeless animals and promoting
their adoption into pet homes, and preventing cruelty.
More than 4,000 animals from the community enter their


facility each year, and on any given day, the staff cares for
hundreds of dogs and cats.
With this high-density population and the daily
onslaught of new arrivals from all comers of the
community, it should not surprise anyone that infectious
disease outbreaks are a constant threat to the health and
welfare'of sheltered animals. But infectious disease
outbreaks don't just spontaneously erupt in shelters. They
start in the community. Like the Trojan horse slipping
through the gates of Troy, infectious agents deceptively
enter the shelter hidden in the bodies of unwanted and
neglected animals from the community. Once inside the
shelter, factors that favor the spread of disease in the
population include close proximity in crowded kennels,
stress in animals confused by their new surroundings, and
a large proportion of naive animals with no immunity to
the pathogen.
The shelter is a mirror reflecting the presence of
infectious diseases lurking in unvaccinated and neglected
animals in the community.


The community shelter recently experienced its first
known outbreak of canine distemper. While this age-old
scourge is a rare foe for the pampered pet dog, it is public
enemy No. 1 for the scores of stray and abandoned dogs
wandering the streets or warehoused in the shelter. Why
this dichotomy in susceptibility? Canine distemper is a
highly contagious, debilitating, and often fatal disease,
but is one of several infectious diseases preventable by
proper vaccination. While thousands of family pets in this
community receive disease-preventing and life-saving
vaccinations, there are equal numbers of free-roaming or
neglected dogs that are never vaccinated, rendering them
susceptible to contagious diseases such as distemper.
These unprotected dogs perpetuate the presence of
distemper virus in the canine community' by serving as
reservoirs for amplification and spread of infection. And
where do many of these unvaccinated dogs end up? The
community shelter. They are the Trojan horses.

Meet Buster


By Rick Burnham
Editor

W e interrupt this series of mildly incendiary |' ..
opinion columns about national politics to ''. .' -'.Z
bring you something a little softer, a story ;':
that will perhaps appeal to conservatives
and liberals alike, to Christians and Muslims, to terrorists
.and to infidels. .
Something kinder, gentler. Fluffier.
Buster. My cat.
For years and years on end, I considered myself a
"dog" person. I had always had one, and always would.
I just loved them, loved the way they would fetch a stick
'or lick your face or sit down and watch football with
you. Dogs were for men real men, and cats were for
-everyone else.
Then I met Sharron, who is not a cat, but a very sweet and intelligent woman who
has an affinity for cats. With the help of her own two cats Nick and Murray Sharron
was able to point out the error of my ways. I became a "cat" person. And on June 9,
I went to the Levy County Humane Society, in search of a male orange cat -just like
Nick and Murray.
They do marvelous things at the Levy County Humane Society. Director David
SWeatherford and his staff provide a healthy dose of tender loving care to more than
3,000 animals on an average year. That's considerable, considering their limited budget,
and considering their limited staff.
Arnette Garrison, a young lady of considerable knowledge and passion about what


she does, helped me out June 9. I told her what I was looking for actually who I
was looking for and she led the way. Inside a small building were perhaps a dozen
cats. Among them, trying his best to see over the top of his brothers and sisters, was a
small, orange cat. Arnette picked up this timid youngster, and after a brief inspection,
announced that he was a him.
Buster, an eight-week-old kitten, came home with me.
Things were rocky at first. Buster meowed all dang night for about a week. He also
dumped out an entire bottle of laundry detergent, and chewed to pieces an autographed
picture of Bobby Bowden which made me bust out crying.
He also had some fleas, so I dipped him in a bucket of dishwashing soap, careful not
to get any in his eyes. The fleas all evacuated to his face, and that was the most pitiful
thing you have ever seen. Later I bought some very expensive but quite effective flea
repellent, and that took care of that.
Suddenly, without the fleas, and with a bright and shiny coat brought on by the
detergent, Buster was a new cat. He would march into the room like a Budweiser
Clydesdale, which is not surprising because he eats like a horse. Poops like one too. I
left a bowl of chili out and he got into it. Later, rockets came flying out his rear end.
That reminds me whoever invented kitty litter should be given the Nobel Peace Prize.
There are difficult times ahead. Buster is going to the vet soon and will return home
with a few less body parts than he left with. This probably won't sit well with him, and
he probably won't sit well for a couple of days afterward. But we've had a discussion
about it, and he understands that it has to be this way. He will be light on his feet,
though certainly not light in his loafers.
Will I ever get another dog? Probably. But he will have to watch "Hannity and
Colmes" with me, and he will have to snicker every time Colmes opens his mouth. He
will have to love sports, and be a fan of homemade chili, Cheetos, and Skittles.
In other words, he'll have to be like Buster the orange cat who is all right by me.


Can you feel the love from big oil?


,,By Terry Witt
Staff Writer.

B ig corporations
are good at
making people
\, e think they
are getting a bargain,
even when the product
is overpriced. It's called
marketing.
Take $4 gas as an
example. I was talking to
Va friend of mine the other
daM in Bronson and he
was chirping about ha ing
.-paid $3.71 for gasoline in
Qcala. He seemed content to have a saved abd' ut iiaiter
_*W gallona~ie-eemptained aboat abighgsapries in
-Chiefland, thich were mostly in the $4 range. p
He seemed satisfied with paying $3.71 per gallon until
bLpointed out that the price wasn't low. He recalled that
gas sold for 26 cents a gallon in 1971. I remembered that
anew Mustang sold for less than $5.000. The first oil
I.embargo raised the price of gasoline to about 60 cents.
fA couple more Mideast wars later, the price was about
$1.60. That's what I was paying for a gallon of regular
gas when oilman George W. Bush was elected president
of the United States.
Most of us didn't complain about $1.60 gas. I could fill
my economy car for about $19 and change. But the big
,oil companies and speculators in oil futures apparently
agreed with Bush that oil was an underpriced commodity.
Gradually, they have been getting the American public
accustomed to high priced gasoline.
Americans have paid $4 per gallon for regular gasoline
for about the past six months or so. Now the price is
gradually in decline. I suspect it may settle at $3 per
gallon (I hope lower). Everyone will do jumping jacks
about the price of gas dropping a dollar. In reality, they
should be outraged by $3 per gallon gasoline. But the
marketing scheme is working. Within the next year,
gasoline may rise to $5 per gallon for a while before
falling back to $4. Americans will then proclaim their
,happiness about not being gouged with $5 per gallon gas.


The American public is being robbed blind by
oil company czars and thieves clothed as oil futures
speculators in the veiled markets of Wall Street. The
politicians in Washington are just as much to blame.
Perhaps they are all pocketing the riches. One wonders.
Members of Congress adjourned their session last
week without passing meaningful energy legislation.
The U.S. House and half of the U.S. Senate are running
for re-election. But no one is fighting for the American
consumer. I sometimes get the impression'some
members of Congress are stupid enough to believe the
marketing schemes of the oil czars who claim that world
competition alone is driving up prices.
If world competition for oil is solely to blame, why not
try new strategies? Why not power cars and trucks with
alternative energies? The new Honda green car provides
insights.
S'The'c-ar 186ks good on paper, buti1ls.shortcomings, '
;povt Bath el)Utaifates Congress hastyet to make:anyr,
effort to retool the nation's transportation system to make
it possible to use cars and trucks powered by hydrogen,
electricity or natural gas. There are no refueling stations
for such vehicles, making them impractical to use.
Honda's new vehicle runs off compressed natural
gas. It is being billed as the cleanest and greenest car on
the planet. Natural gas releases 25 percent less carbon
dioxide when it is burned in electric power plants or
automobiles, meaning less greenhouse gases are released
into the atmosphere. Greenhouse gases are blamed for
global warming.
The only problem with the 2008 Honda Civic GX is
you won't find a natural gas refilling station anywhere in
the nation. The sleek car will travel about 220-250 miles
on a tank of compressed natural gas with a stiff wind at
your back, but you had better track your mileage carefully
to ensure you get back home with fuel in the tank. Your
garage would have to be the refueling station.
Honda's website says the car can be refilled at your
home if you buy a compact refueling unit that can be
installed inside or outside your garage. I can't wait to buy
a new Honda Civic GX and the home refueling unit. I'
would keep it in my garage right next to the matches and
spare gas for the lawn mower. The refueling unit is called
"Phil," by the way.
The idea of fueling up. at home doesn't really appeal


to me. If I bought the car I could not drive more than
110-125 miles one way without having to turn around
and go back home to refuel. The Honda Civic GX is a
good example of why I continue to buy $4 gasoline. Most
of us have no choice but to operate gas-powered cars
and trucks because there are no neighborhood refueling
stations that carry compressed natural gas for the Honda
Civic GX. We are a captive market. We have no choice
but to pay the high price of gasoline. We are slaves to gas.
Natural gas is the cleanest of the fossil fuels. The
United States is the second largest producer of natural
gas and the largest consumer of natural gas in the world,
according to The Natural Gas Supply Association
website. Americans use about 62 billion cubic feet of
natural gas every, day in homes, businesses and industry.
Almost 8,000 U.S. companies produce natural gas and 85
percent of the gas used in the United States is produced
-domestically. That, means if we somehow managed.
i ,,to convert the nation.'secars and trucks to natural gas,
we would not have to rely on Saudi Arabia, Nigeria or
Venezuela for much of our oil. ,
I would be willing to buy a natural gas car equipped
with a high tech fuel cell if it could run 5,000 miles
without a fill up. Natural gas has been used to power cars
and truck for years. My dad, who lives in Wisconsin, said
one tiny town up there has used natural gas to power its
city vehicles for years. The idea isn't new.
The energy crisis is political in nature. I don't buy the
argument that world markets are solely responsible for
driving up the price of gasoline. I don't think the U.S.
Congress and President Bush are helpless to bring down
the prices. They are part of the worldwide marketing
scam to convince Americans that gas, as President Bush
noted in the year 2000, is an "underpriced commodity."
We need to go to the polls and remove the politicians who
claim their hands are tied about high gas prices and elect
people who are care about working class people.
You can always tell a working class person by
watching their expression at the gas pump. If they look
like they are bleeding to death as the gas pours into
the vehicle, it is a virtual certainty they are a regular
paycheck worker, a young mom or dad with kids, or an
elderly retiree struggling to bear the weight of $4 gas.
Or should I say $3.71 cent gas. I forgot about the
cheap stuff.

Distemper, from Page 10
Levy County Animal Services is just one of numerous shelters in Florida and
other states that have battled distemper virus. Last year, the Alachua County public
shelter suffered through a canine distemper outbreak that devastated the animal
welfare community. In a study to determine risk factors for such outbreaks, the
University of Florida Shelter Medicine Program found that nearly 60 percent of
the dogs entering the Alachua County shelter on any given day had no pre-existing
immunity to distemper virus, most likely because they had never been vaccinated.
Therefore, if only one infected dog entered the shelter, then most of the dogs in
the facility would be at risk of infection, creating another disease outbreak. The
existence of large numbers of unvaccinated dogs susceptible to distemper virus
infection has been demonstrated in other communities, and most likely holds true
for Levy County.
. The community should commend the director and staff at Levy County Animal
Services for their rapid recognition of the disease problem and pursuit of testing to
diagnose the cause. The identification of distemper permitted the formulation and
execution of appropriate and effective measures for stopping the spread of virus
and eliminating it from the facility without resorting to drastic measures such as
depopulation through euthanasia of all the dogs in the shelter. However, the shelter
must remain vigilant as long as there are neglected dogs in the community.
Basic responsibilities for animal health and welfare include spaying and
neutering to reduce the numbers of animals that need a shelter, vaccination to
protect their health, and a lifetime commitment to the welfare of animals adopted
into the family. Animal lovers can be part of the solution by adopting their next
pet and volunteering their time at the shelter. It takes a community to create the
problems of unwanted and neglected animals. It will take a community effort to
achieve our goals of a safe and comfortable life for all of our companion animals.

Chiefland sends Virginia champ home at Southeast Regional


But 'Bama squad

proves to be tougher

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor


LEESBURG Chiefland's 15-and-under Babe Ruth
team sent the Virginia state champ packing during Southeast
Regional play over the weekend in Leesburg, but found the
top team from Alabama to be a little less accommodating.
Chiefland scored three seventh-inning runs Saturday to
break open a close game with Arlington, Va., eventually
winning 6-4 over the Washington, D.C. suburb. Pitchers
Jake Reidy, Marquis Green and Bo Beauchamp combined
to keep Arlington at bay for most of the game.
With the game tied 3-3, Arlington unraveled in the
seventh, committing a couple of costly errors. Shannon
Wilson reached base on an infield hit, and Cyle Brady
and Travis Wain coaxed walks off Arlington pitcher Nick
Cantow to load the bases. Two infield errors later, Chiefland
led 5-3. Parrish Parnell then reached base on an infield hit,
and the team from Levy County led 6-3.
Arlington managed a run of their own in the bottom of
the seventh, but Beauchamp closed the door, prompting
words of praise from coach Kyle Parnell.
"Bo came in and pitched the last three innings," Parnell
said. "He shut them down, and we found a way to win."
With the win over Arlington, Chiefland advanced to a
Sunday morning game against Etowah County, Ala. The
Alabama team shocked Chiefland with five first-inning
runs and never looked back, winning 9-2.
Despite the lopsided loss, Parnell found plenty of
encouraging signs from the Chiefland team. When things
looked rough early in the game, he said, they never gave
up. Chiefland narrowed the gap to 5-2 after five innings,
but eventually ran out of gas.
"They continued to fight and made a game out of it," he
said. "We just ran out of gas at the end."
Parrish Parnell had two doubles and one run batted
in during the game, while Brent Slaughter contributed a
double of his own.
Parnell said the performance of Team Chiefland during
back-to-back tournaments in Tallahassee and Leesburg,
including that of the fans and the sponsors, was something
to be proud of.
"We did well," he said. "I am proud of these young
men. We appreciate all the businesses and individuals who
sponsppd us and helped us get here, and all teepgle~
who came out and watched us play."

Give football practice an early start to prevent injuries


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor


U


Football, the last time I
checked, was known to be called
a contact sport. Players hit one
another, tackle each other, and I
there are violent collusions with
bodies smashing into bodies.
The players are all equipped
with state of the art safety equipment, from helmets to
pads, and any other wraps they need for protection.
In other words football is a rough sport. It's a long way
from ping pong.
Levy County schools will be starting on Aug. 18, this
year. And I believe that most of our high school football
teams will play a scrimmage game on Aug. 22. This will
be followed by the Fall Kickoff Classics played by each

, of our three high schools on or around Aug. 29.
For some reason, as I understand it, the start of contact
football practice has been changed from August 4, and
moved to August 11.
This means just one week of two-a-day practice
sessions before school starts. The teams will then have
the after school practice session for only one week before
their team scrimmage game, followed by another week of
practice before they play the Fall Kickoff Classic game.
This limits the athletes to just three weeks before the fall
classic games to be in shape.
It will be interesting to see how the small schools in
the area are affected injury wise, with such a short time to
get the athletes in shape for football.
Let's not forget that in the small schools most of the
athletes play more than one sport. The last sport some
of these athletes played was baseball some three months
ago. For some of the athletes it was basketball. For some
it was football, last season.
I know there are those teams that participate in
summer baseball and even summer basketball for a
few weeks after school is out for the summer. But you
can't do anything other than the weight room workouts in
the summer in getting ready for football season. Baseball
and basketball are not really considered contact sports.
It's my opinion that one week of two-a-day practice
sessions, and then another week of after-school practice
sessions are not enough time to get the athletes in football
shape.
Don't forget the equipment these kids are wearing and
the heat and humidity they play in here in Florida.
The coaches do everything they can to keep their

COMMISSIONERS OF LEVY
COUNTY, FLORIDA Published August 7, 2008


players hydrated during practices. The officials even call
water-break time outs through out the games.
This should tell the powers to be that more time should
be given to get these young athletes in better shape for the
contact sport they are preparing to play.
The fans who come out to support their home teams
the last week in August and through September usually sit
in the stands with hand-held fans and sweat up a storm.
There is just not enough time given to these kids to get
ready. This is one reason for the large number of injuries
that occur in the first several games.
When the coaches are asked before the season starts
during the first week of practice how they feel their team
will do, each coach always says, if we can avoid injuries,
and stay healthy we should be alright. That statement of
avoiding injuries is due to the short time the teams have
to get'ready for the season. Two weeks in the searing heat
and humidity is just not enough time to get these young
athletes bodies ready for football.
That first Fall Kickoff Classic may be called a Fall
Classic according to the calendar, but this is still Florida.
Kicking off at 7:30 pm with the temperature still in the
high 80s and the high humidity is not your normal fall
weather.
Football practice should be allowed to start the last
Monday in July each year. Give these athletes this extra
time to get in better shape for their sport. This would help
prevent many of the early. season injuries that occur in the
schools in Florida.
Of course, that is just my own opinion.

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF
ENVIRONMENTAL
PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environ-
mental Protection gives notice of
its intent to issue a permit modi-
fication for Southpoint. Dairy to
Mr. Ron St. John, 4951 NW 170th
Street, Trenton, FL 32693 to
modify an existing confinement
dairy. All existing operations as
the facility will be closed and
abandoned. The new operation
will be a rotationally grazed dairy
with a herd size of 2531 cows
(maximum annual average),
including 1332 mature dairy
cows (1164 on pasture and 168
housed under roof), 1163 dairy
heifers/calves, and 36 bulls.
The system is designed to be
a rotational grazed, low intensity
management system with an
87 acre site for applying CAFO
manure, litter and wastewater,.
Wastewater will be collected


from the milk/feed center and
will gravity flow to a collection
sump with an off-line overflow
pond. All non-contact stormwa-
ter will be collected and treated
separately from the wastewater
treatment system. The waste-
water system will consist of a
small holding pond (12 ft x 12 ft
and 10 ft deep, 10,771 gallons)
which will be used as a collec-


tion sump with a duplex pump
station (50 GPM at 5HP each)
and a 10 HP agitator. Wastewa-
ter in the collection sump will be
pumped directly to the 87 acre
land application site and will be
applied using a traveling gun
system. There is a separate off-
line overflow pond (25 ft x 25 ft
and 6 ft deep, ) with a HDPE or
LDPE 60 mil and UV' resistant
liner in accordance with specifi-
cations. The overflow pond will
be kept dry under normal opera-
tion, so will only receive over-
flow water from the collection
sump during high storm events.
The facility will also have a
non-contact stormwater system.
The stormwater from the roofs
of the milk center barns, which
include the milk parlor, milk
house, and two feed bins (5,600
SF of impervious area) will be
handled in two dry retention
ponds. The roof runoff from the
south side of the milk parlor barn
will be directed to the southern
dry retention pond (16ft x 100ft)
by surface* grading along the
side of the barn. The roof run-
off from the northern roofs will
be guttered and directed to the
eastern retention (60ft x 60ft) via
8" PVC pipes along with storm-
water from the access road via
swallow swales. Limestone road
base and limerock materials will
be used as needed to stabilize
the access road. When used
the limestone will be constructed
8 feet wide, resulting in a maxi-
mum of 63,000 SF of possible
semi-impervious surface area.
The roadway path is 15 ft wide
with swales on each side and
side slopes at 3:1 for any sec-
tions with limestone surfaces.
The facility is located at lati-
tude 29*25'23.86" N, lorgitude
8254'49.77" W on 6250 NW
82nd Court, Chiefland, FL 32626
in Levy County.
The intent to issue and ap-
plication file are available for
public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m., Monday through Fri-
day, except legal holidays, at
Northeast District Office, 7825
Baymeadows Way, Suite 200B,
Jacksonville, FL 32256-7590.
The Department will issue the
permit with the attached condi-
tions unless a timely petition
for an administrative hearing is
filed under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes,
within fourteen days of receipt
of notice. The procedures for
petitioning for a hearing are set
forth below.
A person whose substantial
interests are affected by the
Department's proposed permit-.
ting decision may petition for an
administrative proceeding (hear-
ing) under Sections 120.569 and
12Q.57, Florida Statutes. The
petition must contain the infor-
mation set forth below and must
be filed (received by the clerk)
in the Office of General Coun-
sel of the Department at 3900
Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail.
Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-3000.
Under Rule 62-110.106(4),
Florida Administrative Code, a
person may request enlarge-
ment of the time for filing a pe-
tition for an administrative hear-
ing. The request must be filed
(received by the clerk) in the Of-
fice of General Counsel before
the end of the time period for fil-
ing. a petition for an administra-
tive hearing.
Petitions filed by any per-
sons other than those entitled
to written notice under Section
120.60(3), Florida Statutes, must
be filed within fourteen days of
publication of the notice or with-
in fourteen days of receipt of the
written notice, whichever occurs
first. Under Section 120.60(3),
Florida Statutes, however, any
person who has asked the De-
partment for notice of agency
action may filea petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such
notice, regardless of the date of
publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above at
the time of filing. The failure of.
any person to file a petition or
request for enlargement of time
within fourteen days of receipt of
notice shall constitute a waiver
of that person's right to request


an administrative determina-
tion (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent inter-
vention (in a proceeding initiated
by another party) will be only at
the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a mo-
tion in compliance with Rule 28-
106.205, Florida Administrative


Code.
A petition that disputes the
material facts on which the De-
partment's action is based must
contain the following informa-
tion:
(a) The name, address,
and telephone number of each
petitioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative, if
any; the Department permit
identification number and the
county in which the subject mat-
ter or activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner received
notice of the Department action;
(c) A statement of how
each petitioner's substantial in-
terests are affected by the De-
partment action;
(d) A statement of all dis-
puted issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition must
so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts
that the petitioner contends war-
rant reversal or modification of
the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of
the ultimate facts alleged, as
well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner to re-
lief; and.
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner, stating
precisely the action that the pe-
titioner wants the Department to
take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to
formulate final agency action,
the filing of a petition means
that the Department's. final ac-
tion may be different from the
position taken by it in this notice.
Persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such
final decision of the Department
have the right to petition to be-
come a party to the proceeding,
in accordance with the require-
ments set forth above.
In addition to requesting an
administrative hearing, any pe.ti-
tioner may elect to pursue me-
diation. The election may be
accomplished by filing with the
Department a mediation agree-
ment with all parties to the pro-
ceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and suf-
ficient petition for a hearing).
The agreement must contain all
the information required by Rule
28-106.404, Florida Administra-
tive Code. The agreement must
be received by the clerk in the
Office of General Counsel of the
Department at 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station
35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-
3000, within ten days after the
deadline for filing a petition, as
set forth above. Choosing me-
diation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if media-
tion does not result in a settle-
ment.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the. timely
agreement of all parties to me-
diate will toll the time limitations
imposed by Sections ,120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, for
holding an administrative hear-
ing and issuing a final order.
Unless otherwise agreed by
the parties, the mediation must
be concluded within sixty days
of the execution of the agree-
ment. If mediation results in
settlement of the administrative
dispute, the Department must
enter a final order incorporating
the agreement of the parties.
Persons seeking to protect their
substantial interests that would
be affected by such a modified
final decision must file' their peti-
tions within fourteen days of re-
ceipt of this notice, or they shall
be deemed to have waived their
right to a proceeding under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Flor-
ida Statutes. If mediation termi-
nates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that
the administrative hearing pro-
cesses under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, Florida Statutes, re-
main available for disposition of
the dispute, and the notice will
specify the deadlines that then
will apply for challenging the
agency action and electing rem-
edies under those two statutes.

Election, from Page 1
,WhenAsbell firt,topk officeqq 1984,. he count) was using mechanical voting machines.
Voters would stand behind a curtain and pull a lever to cast their votes. Later, the county
used a system where voters filled out paper ballots and stuffed them in a box for scanning
at the elections office. But the ballots sometimes became moist, depending on weather
conditions, and had to be blow dried.
She said the current optical scanners are a reliable computer technology. Voters use a
pencil to fill in the oval next to the candidate of their choice. They place the ballot in a
scanner. The results are brought to Bronson for tabulation.
Asbell said she has 60 ballot styles this year. That means she had to print ballots with 60
different combinations of candidate names, partly due to the fact that the county is divided
into three state House districts, two congressional districts and two state senate districts.
Voting precincts often have different candidate combinations.
Asbell said she doesn't have to order her ballots in advance. She has a "Ballot on
Demand" system. The two large computer copiers in her office can be used to print absentee
ballots and early voting ballots as needed. She said it saves her the expense of printing
ballots she doesn't need.
