Early birds get



election started


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

They were standing on the steps
of the Bronson elections office
before the doors ever opened
Monday morning.
The earliest of the early voters in
the 2008 election were eager to get
it done.
Early voting is a convenience for
Florida residents, and it's available
to any registered voter.
The process will take place in
Levy County from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m., Monday through Saturday,
from Aug. 11 through Aug. 23.
Results of the early voting will
be stored in the elections office
computer until after the -polls close
at 7 p.m. Aug. 26, Election Day.
Early voting doesn't take long.
When the voter walks into the
elections office, he or she presents
their driver's license to the clerk
and signs a computer card. The
clerk provides a ballot. A black felt
pen is supplied. The voter walks to


a table and fills in the oval next to
the name of their favorite candidate
in each race.
The process is simple.
Opening day saw 89 residents
cast early votes. The total was up
to 143 late Tuesday afternoon,, but
the number of early voters will
increase in days to come, according
to Supervisor'of.Elections Connie
Asbell.
Asbell has also mailed out 2,700
absentee ballots and received 1,311
back. People who plan to be out of
town or prefer to cast their ballot in
the privacy of their homes often use
absentees.
"This week and next week we'll
mail out a lot," she said.
Asbell said several major Levy
County political races have been
decided in previous years by
absentee ballots. She said that's
why many candidates work hard
to ensure their supporters vote by
absentee if they plan to be out of
town on Election Day.
Or, they can always vote early.


nrIIn rvaI
Joe and Pat Graves of Williston were early voters No. 123 and
124 during early voting in Bronson this week.

Progress Energy responds to questions from public

"."1:-.- ... -Progress Energy Florida officials fielded questions from
the public last week about their proposal to build a $17
billion nuclear powered generation site in southwest Levy
County, though opposition from Levy County residents
appeared to be light.
Inquiries ranged from how the nuclear waste would
be handled or reprocessed at the site to how many jobs
would be produced, whether Progress Energy intended
to compensate Dunnellon area residents if a new railroad
spur devalued their home, %a well as questions about
environmental issues.

Jerry Robinson, the only Republican candidate in
the District 5 county commission race, said he doesn't
think county commissioners are acting as responsibly
as they should with the public's tax dollars.
"I do not think the county commission is using its
fiduciary responsibility for the best interests of the
residents of the county," he said. "I think they should
be looking at cost cutting rather than raising fees and
taxes."

Levy County Commission
Chairman Sammy Yearty is in his
30th year on the board and believes
his experience as a commissioner,
will be an asset to the county in the
next four years.
"It's a critical time that could
affect the future of our county,"
Yearty said. "I feel with my
experience I can be a help."
Yearty was appointed to the Levy
County Commission in 1978 by
then Gov. Reuben Askew to fill the
,.unexpired term of Sam Standridge,
who had passed away while still in
office. He ran for office the first time
in 1980 against Poppy Hill, Hershel


Anderson and Ed Harris.
The county faces many challenges
and issues, Yearty said. He added
that he wants to take part in resolving
them.
"It is proven I have the record and
experience in government, and I love
Levy County," he said.
Yearty has been active in bringing,
the Tri-County Hospital to Levy
County and he said he supports plans
to build a new free-standing Central
Florida Community College north of
Chiefland. He said he would like to
see the school board and community
college create programs to train people
for jobs.
He said he supports bringing the

Al Macri ran against District
3 County Commissioner Sammy
Yearty four years ago and lost, but
he is back again, and he is critical of
the way he says county government
is being run.
"I'm tired of the waste in the
county, the expense; and the
infrastructure is a mess," Macri
said. "I feel he (Yearty) has been
in there 30 years. He's getting too
comfortable in the job. It's time for
a change."
The race between Macri and
Yearty will be decided in the


primary election -on Aug. 26. Both
are Democrats, and they are the only
two candidates in the race.
Macri questions the county's
policy allowing employees to
take vehicles home. He said one
employee is being allowed to drive
a county vehicle to Steinhatcheei
another to High Springs.
"I heard them say it was in their
employee packages when they were
hired," Macri said.
Macri expressed that he knows
there was a shortfall in the budget
this year, but they covered the
shortfall using reserve funds. He said

Fanning Springs losing flow, state scientist confirms


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A state geologist says Fanning Springs is now a second magnitude spring due to reduced
water flow, and climate is the culprit. The spring was once first magnitude.
"Based on the data, yes, in my opinion, Fanning Springs is a second inagnitude spring,"
said Tom Greenhalgh, professional geologist with the Florida Geological Society.
Lack of rainfall over the past decade is the big climate factor.
Greenhalgh was one of six guest speakers at the Fanning and Manatee Springs Working
Group, a forum for people who live and work in the areas surrounding springs.
The forum took place at Fanning Springs City Hall on Aug. 7. Most of those attending
were from the scientific community, but the organizers would like to attract more
community members to the discussion.
Anyone living in the Fanning Springs and Chiefland area is considered a stakeholder.
"This is not an environmental organization," said Carol L. Lippincott, an environmental
consultant and botanist who runs the forums. "It's an organization of stakeholders living
in the springshed."
Greenhalgh had mentioned in a previous appearance before the group that he thought
Fanning was losing flow and could be a second magnitude.
He has looked at data from 1930 to 1998 showing the median flow was 107.5 cubic
feet per second in those years, but data shows the median flow declined to 73.5 cubic feet
per second from 1999-08.
Manatee Springs near Chiefland remains a first magnitude spring, meaning its flow is
more than 100 cubic feet per second, according to Greenhalgh.
But Greenhalgh said all springs in the Suwannee River Valley have reduced flows.
"Without a doubt, climate is the big driver in these springs," he said.
Greenhalgh. acknowledged that some scientists believe water flowing from springs


Experts say Fanning Springs may be losing some of its flow.
may be many years old before it emerges from the spring vent, but he said he is not one
of them.
"I'm one of those scientists who think the water coming out of the springs is very
rapid," he said.


Williston Council spares its residents more tax burden


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston City Council members were in no mood to
spend tax dollars last week.
The council rejected a plan to create a special property
assessment to fund fire services within the city limits and
most of the council members showed no interest in buying
a vacant church building to replace their aging City Hall.
The Williston Fire Rescue assessment would have cost
eligible city homeowners $66.14 annually. Non-residential
property would have been assessed on a square footage
formula. .
Councilman Cal Byrd, who is campaigning for a county
commission seat, said the people are telling him they are
"maxed out" as far as spending goes. He said they don't
want more taxes and he understood their feelings.
'The economy's killing them and we're going to kill
them a little nmore'" he said.,


Councilman Brooks Holloway was wary of calling the
assessment a supplement to the property tax millage. He
said if the village was decreased by the amount of the
assessment, the tax burden would not have increased.
"Otherwise this is a tax," he said.
Danny Wallace, representing the Williston Volunteer Fire
Department, said the assessment would have guaranteed
money for city fire services. He said the city has one of the
better fire services in the county.
Wallace said he understood the feelings of the
commissioners and the feelings of the residents ofWilliston,
but he felt the assessment was a positive move.
"This' assessment is a guarantee of survival of the
department," he said. "It's a vital department for the city"
The assessment would have generated an estimated
$152,285 next year, $165,096 in 2009-10 and would have
gradually risen to $206,688 in.2012-13.
Williston is set to receive $193 ,0Q0 in county firefighting
funds in this year's budget. County funds pay for firefighting


outside the city limits. The county commission has no
countywide fire department.
Councilman Steve Holcomb voted against the motion to
kill the fire assessment.
The council members showed little enthusiasm for
buying the former Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day
Saints building despite pleas from Council President Debra
Jones to make the purchase.
"We can't sit here and let this thing fall down around
us," she said of the current City Hall.
She said termites infest the building. During outbreaks
of termites, the insects seem to be everywhere.
But some council members were concerned about taking
on that'much debt in times of economic uncertainty.
"Every business in the city is in survival mode," said
Councilman Michael Shoemaker. "You've got to tighten
your belt and grin and bear it for a while."
The council'allowed the discussion of a new city hall to
fade into adjournment.

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 Williston Police Departments; however the majority of my experience is
with the Levy County Sheriff s Office. Professionally, I have served in the patrol division and criminal investigations division, working major case crimes. In
1997., I graduated from the 189fh 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 we 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 programs 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 arid veri fy 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/Ag. 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 Standards" 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,


aornndy &nif n

Progress Energy nuclear power plant to the county. He stated
that the new energy complex will provide hundreds of new
jobs for Levy County and expand its tax base.
"It's going to be good for the county economy," he said.
But he expressed that the county faces challenges.
He said the reduction of tax revenues brought about by
the economic slowdown and state mandates, including a
constitutional amendment, has the potential to affect critical
services in the county, such as emergency medical services,
law enforcement and fire protection.
"I'm not in favor of cutting jobs in any sector of the
emergency services," Yearty said. "I believe with creative
planning and leadership, funding can be and will be provided
for medical services, fire services and law enforcement
services."
Yearty said he is also concerned about the environment,
particularly coastal wetlands and spring protection, and he


stated that his concerns are longstanding.
He said he encouraged state purchase of the 47,000-acre
Goethe State Forest. He was also involved in finding funds for
the purchase ofAtsena Otie Key off the Cedar Key coastline
to protect coastal water quality that could have affected the
shellfish industry.
Yearty said he was also part of the effort to encourage
the purchase of Devil's Hammock. The hammock is the
headwaters of the Waccasassa River and its tributaries, which
he said flow to Waccasassa Bay and its estuaries on the
coast.
"You drive 20 miles here and you are in a publicly owned
forest," Yearty said. He said these publicly- owned forest
lands can never be developed, which provides protection for
the county's water quality.
Yearty was one of the leaders who helped designate the
Levy County Coastline as Outstanding Florida Waters, which


means development cannot
be allowed to lower water
quality.
"I have opposed and
will continue to oppose any
industry or development that
will adversely affect Levy
County's springs, rivers,
wetlands and coastal waters,"
Yearty said.
Yearty said he serves not
only District 3, but is active
representing all of Levy
County. He said he is in
touch with the people and is
experienced in budgeting matters.

the reserves should have been set aside for a hurricane.
He said the county collected $50 million in taxes four
'years ago. Now it gets $70 million, but the county is no
better off.
People have to pay at the landfill to get rid of scrap metal,
but according to Macri, he has found no records showing
where Ocala recycling paid the county for the metal.
Macri said he saw about 200 heavy equipment tires
in the Class 3 portion of the county landfill about eight
months ago, but he said the county is not supposed to place
any tires in the Class 3 hole. Macri maintains that the hole
'is supposed to be for burying old furniture and construction
debris. He said the tires he saw were big tires skidder and
Heavy construction tires.
"There are things like that I see in the county and it is
not right," Macri said. "They are into that old boy system


and it doesn't work with me."
County Landfill Director Benny Jerrels said the county
is legally allowed to throw' large equipment tires into the
Class 3 landfill, but not small tires for passenger cars
or small trucks. He said he has never seen 200 heavy
equipment tires in the hole. He said occasionally one of
the large tires, or sometimes two or three of the big tires,
will be thrown in the hole. A Journal reporter made an
unannounced visit to the new Class 3 landfill and found no
tires in the hole.
Macri said he doesn't have a grudge against the county
nor does he have a grudge against anyone in the county.
"I just want to help the citizens' of Levy County,"
Macri said, "Everyone should be treated fairly and given
a chance."
He said he is running on a platform of change.


Macri stated that he
has accepted almost no
campaign donations because
he wants to be completely
independent when he takes
office. He said he has taken'
a few donations from close
friends.
"To me if you take
contributions or go out
and beg for contributions,
some people would want
something in return," Macri
said. "I'm not promising
anything. I'll try to be the
best commissioner I can be."


Stevens, from Page 1


his current term.
Stevens cited the county commission's decision to save its
money and build a new garbage transfer station at the Levy
County Landfill as one of its accomplishments. Garbage is
unloaded in the building and transferred by truck to a landfill
north of Alachua County.
He said the county is currently working with an outside
company on the possibility of converting garbage at the
landfill into diesel fuel.
He said Mike Dorr, who runs the bulk fuel plant in
Williston, contacted him about the concept of converting
garbage to diesel. Stevens said Dorr is affiliated with BP Oil
and knows a man through BP who has the technology. The
man came to Williston and gave a slide presentation on the
technology, which Stevens and Dorr viewed.
Stevens said the county commission has sent a letter to
Dorr's contact saying it has an interest in the technology.
He said the county is waiting for a reply. The company is
supposed to set up a date around the first of the year when the
garbage-to-diesel technology can be demonstrated.
"They want to make money off it and we want to save
money, and at some point we'll decide if we want to do it,"
Stevens said, adding that the Levy County staff has spoken to
officials in Dixie and Gilchrist counties to see if they want to
see a demonstration.


Stevens said the county commission's decision to purchase
an 800 megahertz radio system for emergency communication
services was a good move. He stated that the county is still
"tweaking" the system to ensure reliable coverage throughout
the county.
He said the, county invested about $1.5 million to $1.6
million in the new radio system. The system is owned by
the state and rented by the county. Stevens said the old radio
system was good, but it was aging and some of the towers
were in bad shape. The tower in Cedar Key was corroded.
The state will be responsible for maintaining and repairing
the new radio system.
"To replace the old s stem or fix it would ha\ e cost more
than what we paid for the new system." Stevens reported.
Stevens. said the count) commission also made a wise
move in purchasing 21 acres of property near the intersection
of County Road 337 and County Road 32 for future expansion
of the Levy County Courthouse and the Levy County Health
Department. He said the tax collector and property appraiser
would be moved to that location whenever a building is
constructed. He said the county has set aside five acres on the
property for a new Health Department building.
Stevens said the intent is to build a 10,000-square-foot
building that could be three stories high. When the second
and third buildings are constructed at the site, they would also


be three stories. ..
"It will be a couple of sd i
years before we have enough
money saved up to even
think about breaking ground
or starting construction,"
Stevens said.
Stevens added that the
county has made good use
of state grants to resurface
county roads and also
has taken advantage of
Community Development
Block grants for home
"improvement.. He said a
CDBG block grant was used
to pave most of the roads in the county's oldest subdivision
behind Hope Church in Williston.
He said one of the county's biggest accomplishments was
the creation ofNature Coast Transit through the transportation
disadvantaged program. Before the bus transit system was
developed, Stevens said the county had been giving Alachua
County $160,000 to $180,000 annually io transport Levy
County residents to Gainesville. He said the bus transit system
is now self-funding.

,copy of a county government document saying that 51 county
:vehicles are taken home every night by employees. After a
,memo was sent to each department in county government
,asking them to justify their take-home vehicles, Robinson
Said seven of the 51 vehicles were parked.
He said one department head cited a potential nuclear
emergency as the reason for taking his vehicle home.
"We don't have a nuclear power plant," Robinson said.
Robinson stated that the county commission does listen to
constituents, but it doesn't hear what they are saying. Robinson
said he would listen and hear what they were saying.
If elected to the commission, Robinson indicated that
periodically he would like to look at every department to see
what could be cut from their budgets.
Robinson stated that he is not a politician. He is just
running for the county commission.
"I just want to be elected to the county commission to
ensure that people are treated the way they should be treated,"
he said. "I don't think I can make changes, but I can get in
there and investigate and attempt to at least get it out to the
public."
Robinson said he supports Progress Energy Florida's


plan to build two nuclear power reactors in southwest Levy
County. He said it will bring jobs to the county.
He maintains that the Windfall of new tax revenue that
will come to Levy County after the plants are constructed
and in operation should be spent only after a careful review
of county needs.
"Let's see if they can help residents with the windfall," he
said.
Robinson said he has always believed the west side of the
county needed a hospital, and he supports the plan to build
the Tri-County Hospital in Chiefland.
Robinson said roads must continue to be a priority for the
commission and that good, roads are crucial for commerce
and the public safety of residents.
Robinson believes that agriculture, aquaculture, cattle
farming, the equine industry and the forest industry are
hallmarks of Levy County.
"The commission must do everything in its power to
promote and provide assistance for these industries because,
believe it or not, these industries are the life blood for our
county," he said.
Robinson added that the county has "magnificent" natural


resources from the Gulf of
Mexico to the Suwannee
River and the Withlacoochee
River and the county must
continue to promote eco-
tourism. He said these
visitors generate revenue
that benefits business owners
and contributes revenues to
county government's coffers.
"We in Levy County
are proud of our .beautiful
rural character and abundant
natural resources, and rightly
so," he wrote in a campaign
statement. "We should all
work hard to protect and
preserve our unique rural character and abundant natural
resources, so the commission can plan wisely for the growth
that will keep us, strong and economically sound, far into the
future."

cheaper than he can," Bryd said.
Byrd stated that he approached Stevens several times
about issues and didn't get a satisfactory answer.
"The final straw was when they increased landfill fees
in November and we (the Williston council) didn't know
it was coming and our budget was already set," Bryd said.
"You stop those surprises by having long-term contracts."
When Williston heard about the increase in landfill
charges, Byrd said. Council President Debra Jones asked
county commissioners to be sensitive to Williston because
it would impact the city's budget, Byrd said.
"Danny said he represented the entire county and made
the motion to raise landfill fees," Byrd said.
-Byrd, when asked about Progress Energy Florida's
proposal to build two nuclear reactors in southwest Levy
County, said Progress Energy is a very good company.
'He said his experience with them has been good and the
company cares about the community.
"They really get involved and they've showed that over
the years with the city of Williston," he said.


Byrd said he supports bringing the nuclear power units
to Levy County.
"We've got to get away from fossil fuels,"Byrd
maintains.
Byrd said the taxes on the new home he moved into
in 2005 are high and he is not sure he can afford them
on a retirement income. His first tax bill in 2006 was for
$4,800.
If he were elected to the county commission, Byrd
expressed that he is not sure what would happen to the
property tax millage rate. He said the voters have already
approved the double Homestead Exemption and there is
more tax relief proposed for the November ballot.
He said it may come down to cutting services to match
available revenues.
"It boils down to saying, here's the revenues you gave
me, these are the services we can afford," Byrd said.
Byrd thinks it would have been wiser if the Florida
Legislature had placed Amendment 1 on the ballot and then
waited a year to see what effect it would have on counties


and cities, before deciding
whether to place the double
Homestead Exemption on
the ballot. But he said that's o
not the way it was done and
now counties and cities are
strapped for revenue.
"How much relief can we
stand?" he said.
If Byrd is elected, he said
he will be ready to make
tough decisions. He said
that's the type of economic
climate that exists for
local governments. Tough
decisions have to be made.
"I think people are tired of people in these positions
ducking and dodging the decisions and keep raising the
taxes," he said. "People are saying, 'I'm maxed out. I can't
afford more'."

Bronson Council member says permit denial was wrong


By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Berlon Weeks, Bronson Town Council
seat 2, addressed his fellow council members
at last week's meeting as a citizen who was
denied a minor development permit because
of his Council status.
"The fact that I'm a member of this
council should have nothing to do with the
permitting process," he said.
Weeks is preparing to move his bail I
bonds business from its current location on -- -
Hathaway Ave. to a 1.5-acre commercially
zoned property on the edge of the Bronson
town limits, just south of the Levy County
Jail. He applied for a permit last month, but
was given his application back and told it
did not meet "minor" status.
"The reason I'm here tonight is because
of the determination that mine is a major An artist's r
development," Weeks told the council.
He referenced a letter written by Town Building Official
Robert Niffenegger that offers three reasons for which this
development is controversial or non-minor and therefore
should be considered major status.
Niffenegger, who does not attend the monthly town
meetings, gave his reasons for denial in a memo.'
"Because the developer is a Town Council member,"
he wrote in the July 9 memo, "And, because the subject
parcel of land is immediately adjacent to R-1 Zoning,
and because the Land Development Regulations do not
specifically provide for the placement of a mobile home on
a commercially zoned parcel of land, I feel this development
should be treated as a major development."
"First of all, whether I'm a city council member, or not,
is irrelevant," Weeks said. "This should not be a legitimate
reason to ask me to... spend $50,000 to engineer something
that is a minor development per the Land Development
Regulations," he added regarding the exorbitant costs that
accompany major development status.


entering of the proposed development.
rendering of the proposed development.


According to the Bronson LDR, which can be found
at www.townofbronson.com major developments are
considered to have one or more of the following criteria:'
exceeds 10 acres, involves 10 or more dwelling units per
acre or 100 or more dwelling units total, or has more than
20,000 sq. ft. of non-residential floor space. Other criteria
include the need for more thorough and public review due
to the possibility of anticipated additional growth that will
meet the above limits, developments that are complex or
hazardous, or developments that may be controversial.
Weeks remained adamant that his proposed plan does
not meet any of the major development requirements.
"I have an 863 sq. ft. building going on an acre and
a half," Weeks said. "Using (my position as a Council
member) as a reason to stop me from doing this and make
me a major development is discrimination."
Weeks acknowledged that an ethical violation.would be
made if he were to participate in a vote. "If I pull myself
away from the council then it doesn't matter."


.,.--" In regard to the second reason, that the
I property is next to R-1 residential lands,
Weeks informed the council that he has
already received support from the property
;, owners of both adjacent lots, and that
the land in question has been zoned for
commercial use' for the past year and a half,
with the original intent known to be his bail
bonds office.
Niffenegg'er's letter questions the ability
to place a mobile home on the property
because the LDR has a "lack of any mention
; of mobile homes under the Commercial
S .1Zoning usage."
The fact the there is no mention of mobile
home usage, Weeks argues, is the very reason
i why it should be allowed. "Mobile homes
are prohibited by exclusion in R-l zoning,
but no prohibition exists for Commercial
Zoning," according to Weeks.
To address Niffenegger's arguments for
major development, Weeks was accompanied to the Aug 4
Council meeting by George Sandora, writer of Bronson's
Land Development Regulations, who spoke not only on
Week's behalf, but also for the LDR. "This is not a major
development," Sandora said. "People who come in to get a
permit to build a house or to put in a commercial building
do not go through major development review unless the
building's over 20,000 square feet."
BronsonAttorney Steven Warm agreed that the proposed
building plan meets minor development status. "It strains
the envelope to say that this is a.major development," he
said. "It either meets the code or it doesn't."
Due to confusion among the council regarding whether
an appeal needed to be advertised as such, Week's formal
appeal of the building official's decision is set for next
month's Council meeting.
"I just want the same right to get a permit that any other
citizen has," Weeks said. "It's discrimination to setI me
apart because I'm a council member."

Chiefland to add firefighters after Commission decision


Chiefland Fire Chief John Ward will be adding at least two full-time firefighters to his
department as a result of action taken by the Chiefland City Commission Monday.
Commissioners agreed to increase two part-time firefighters to full-time positions by
deleting a full-time staff assistant position from the department budget. But even with the
deleted position, the adjustments will cost the city an additional $7,824.83 next year.
If the Levy County Commission increases its fire funding to Chiefland by $21,509.27,

Sheriff's arrests

Drugs, burglary, sexual battery abound


Make room for


emergency vehicles

Hello and welcome to your
Sheriff's Corner. I would like
to focus this week on a topic
we all encounter during our
daily driving experiences,
emergency vehicles. It is
important that we are all
educated on the importance
of yielding to emergency
vehicles. It is also imperative
that we are aware of the
laws surrounding emergency
vehicles. SHERIFFS
The goal of these first
responders is to arrive as CORNER
quickly and safely as possible SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
to their destination. The
professionals receive yearly specialized training in
the classroom as well as live driving on a specialized
course for emergency vehicles. Below you will find the
actual statute that applies to emergency vehicles.
The Florida State Statute 316.126 Operation of
vehicles and actions of pedestrians on approach of
authorized emergency vehicle.
(1)(a) Upon the immediate approach of an
authorized emergency vehicle, while en route to
meet an existing emergency, the driver of every other
vehicle shall, when such emergency vehicle is giving
audible signals by sirens, exhaust whistle, or other
adequate device, or visible signals by use of displayed
blue or red lights, shall yield the right-of-way to the
emergency vehicle and shall immediately proceed to
a position parallel to, and as close as reasonable to the
closest edge of the curb of the roadway, clear of any
intersection and shall stop and remain in position until
the authorized emergency vehicle has passed, unless
otherwise directed by an law enforcement officer.
In July 2002, the Department of Highway Safety
and Motor Vehicles began an awareness campaign
informing the motoring public about the Move Over
Act. This act states "When an authorized emergency
vehicle making use of any visual signals is parked, or a
wrecker displaying amber rotating or flashing lights is
performing a recovery or loading on the roadside, the
driver of every other vehicle, as soon as it is safe:
1. Shall vacate the lane closest to the emergency
vehicle or wrecker when driving on an interstate
highway or other highway with two or more lanes
traveling in the direction of the emergency vehicle
or wrecker, except when otherwise directed by a law
enforcement officer.
2. Shall slow to a speed that is 20 mph less than the
posted speed limit when the posted speed limit is 25
mph or greater; or travel at 5 miles per hour when the
posted speed limit is 20 mph or less, when driving on a
two-lane road, except when otherwise directed by a law
enforcement officer.
Hopefully after reading this information, your
awareness concerning your responsibilities as a driver
towards emergency vehicles has increased. This is an
important issue that at one point or another, you will
encounter. Now you are equipped with the knowledge
to make the right decisions while encountering
situations that involve emergency vehicles.


The Levy County Sheriff's Office released the
following arrests for drugs, burglary, sexual battery and
other crimes Monday. The drug arrests resulted from the
Levy County Drug Task Force making undercover buys
from the suspects.
Sexual battery arrests
Bond for an Inglis man arrested Aug. 4 for having
sex numerous times with a 10-year-old girl was set at
$1,750,000.
William Duane Snyder,. 64, 20297 S.E. 115th St. in
Inglis, was jailed on two counts of capital sexual battery
and three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.
The child's mother said the molestation occurred at
Snyder's home.
In an unrelated case, a 29-year-old Chiefland man
was arrested Aug. 3 on charges of raping and battering a
woman he knew was pregnant.
Hugo Pinto, 55, 5550 N.W. 135th St. in Chiefland was

Undercover drug sting nets two arrests for task force


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


Levy County Sheriff's Office investigators announced
Monday that two people were arrested on July 7 in Chiefland
on charges of attempting to purchase two kilos of cocaine
from undercover officers posing as drug dealers.
Investigators for the Levy County Drug Task Force
confiscated $22,074 cash from the two suspects in the
parking lot of the Wal-Mart Supercenter in Chiefland
where the drugs and money briefly changed hands before
the arrests weremade.
The two kilos of cocaine purchased from undercover
officers were also recovered with the arrests. The procedure
of using undercover police officers to pose as drug dealers
is often called a sting operation.
"We were selling the dope," said Lt. Evan Sullivan.
Arrested on charges of conspiracy to traffic three
kilos of cocaine, and trafficking in two kilos of cocaine,


were Dianco Luque, 34, and Ney Cintra Lopez, 36, of
Clermont.
Sullivan said announcement of the arrests was delayed
a month to allow investigators to pursue other leads in the
case.
An arrest report said the investigation began on June
25 when a confidential source met at a Polk County home
with the two defendants and two other men to negotiate the
purchase of three kilos of powder cocaine.
While the confidential source was in the home, Lopez
placed a call to Luque. He arrived at the home carrying a
large sum of cash. Luque' indicated he was carrying the
entire $66,000 for the three kilos. The confidential source
thumbed through the cash but didn't count it, an arrest
report said.
The confidential source for the task force agreed to
sell the suspects three kilos of cocaine in Chiefland that
same day. Luque and Lopez and an unknown man and
woman came to Chiefland to purchase the three kilos.


Luque sampled the cocaine by tasting it and inhaling some
through his nose, but said he had enough money with him
for only one kilo. He said the rest of the money was on its
way to him. The sale was postponed.
The suspects were later told to make phone contact
with sheriff's investigator Mark Garcia, also working
undercover. On July 7, the suspects agreed to buy one kilo
of cocaine from Garcia and have a second kilo fronted to
them, with payment due later.
The deal took place in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart in
Chiefland. Luque and Lopez entered an undercover vehicle
with Garcia, who produced two kilos of cocaine. Luque
and Lopez gave Garcia the money and left the car with the
cocaine, but they didn't go far, arrest reports said.
Sullivan said the task force had surrounded the drug
deal site with police officers. Luque and Lopez were
intercepted and arrested with the five pounds of powder
cocaine in their possession.


Williston arrests

Police nab drunk


with faulty trailer

A 36-year-old man was arrested for driving under
the influence on July 29 after a Williston police officer
observed him towing a dark trailer with no working
lights on U.S. 27, police said.
Allen C. Saunders, 10851 N.E. 128th Lane, Archer,
nearly hit the police officer's car with the trailer. The
officer was driving alongside Saunders when the near
miss occurred. The officer pulled in behind Saunders,
activated his emergency lights and siren and pulled
Saunders over.
Police said Saunders admitted drinking two beers
and taking medications with the alcohol.
Marcus Jason Harris, 24, 1668 S.W. 5"t St. in Ocala
was arrested Aug. 8 ,by city police while carrying stolen
scrap metal in his truck, police said.
A Williston police officer saw Harris's red truck at
Shadow Trailers at about 11:18 p.m. when the business
was closed. As the officer approached, Harris's vehicle
pulled out on U.S. 41. The officer stopped Harris. A
computer check showed his license had been suspended
twice for failure to pay fines.
*:The-officer observed about 100 pd6id6f`' skyri inh
the rear of the truck. He contacted the owner of Shadow
Trailers who confirmed the scrap came out of their bin
and was worth about $400. Harris admitted jumping a
fence to steal the scrap. He had an unassigned license
plate attached to the truck.

Marinda Youghtab Watkins, 29, and Anthony Ray
Edwards, 19, both of Apartment 503 of Manatee Springs
Apartments were arrested on charges of possession of

7.2 grams of crack cocaine. They also found a locked fire
box under the bed Edwards was lying on that contained 5.4
grams of marijuana and 6.1 grams of powder cocaine. The
power cocaine was packaged for sale, the sheriff's office
said.
Also found inside the lock box were numerous packages
of small baggies used for packaging drugs, a digital scale
and a manual scale. Paperwork belonging to Watkins was
found in the lock box, tying her to the drugs, according to
the sheriffs office.

The School Board heard my voice; let them hear yours


Oy Kellie Parkin
correspondent

Sver wonder what
goes on at school
board meetings?
Nah, I didn't
think so. Most people don't
have the time or energy to
even consider it.
Often I hear people say
things like it doesn't matter
what I think, or it won 't make
iny difference if Igo.
I'm here to tell you that
yes, in fact, it could make all
the difference.
It's quite disheartening, though, when so often I' am
the only one at the meetings who is not employed by the
Levy County School Board. Granted, some of them are
there on their own time, not getting paid, and shouldn't be


overlooked. But it still seems awfully empty in that room.
As a reporter, I know I am there so that you don't have
to be. It's my job to report on the highlights, to keep you
informed.
Writing about Levy County schools is important to me
because it is such a huge part of each our lives. It effects
everyone whether you're a student or employee, have
children attending the schools, pay taxes on your home,
or share the road with the buses. Even if somehow none
of these things apply, if you live in the county you are
surrounded by students and former students and everyone
else that is involved in some way which makes you
connected, too.
As a parent, though, I sit there every other week,
looking at the empty seats all around me, and wish they
were filled with involved parents, community members
and business owners.
I look at the board members and watch the way they
perk up on the few occasions that visitors do attend. They
make sure that each .visitor feels welcome, and that his or
her input is valued and taken seriously,


I must admit that I have sometimes wondered about
the sincerity of these welcoming gestures, but a recent
experience has convinced me that they are indeed
genuine. And I realized something critical the board
members need us as much as we need them. After all,
how can they optimally do their job if they don't know
what the public's needs and interests are? How can they
know if we don't tell them?
Two months ago, I crossed over from journalist to
parent to address the Board about a major issue that
had just surfaced. I was given ample time to speak and
then this amazing thing happened they actually took
me seriously. Questions were asked and apologies were
given, and then they promised to address the concerns
- my concerns as soon as possible.
Shortly before school let out for summer, I learned,
quite offhandedly, that my youngest daughter had once
again encountered a bully this time in gym class.
Needless to say, I was a little caught off guard when

Blame 'Slick Willie'for the deficit


By Rick Burnham
Editor

am a lucky man.
Each week, I get to read Terry Witt's column
before anyone else on the planet. I get amused by
his ramblings on the gas situation, impressed by
his commitment to fix the problem, and flabbergasted by
his knowledge of Congress and its inner workings.
We don't always agree on things, but most of the time
our opinions are somewhere in the same ballpark when it
comes to the country's issues.
Until now.
I was having my first cup of coffee the other day when
he turned in the column below, and I ended up dumping
half of it in my lap.
We both agree that the deficit is much more than it
should be, and we both agree that it will take some doing to get it back to a respectable
level. That's where our agreement ends. He says we have George W. Bush to blame. My
finger is pointed at Bill Clinton.
This becomes a point/counterpoint.
To the misinformed, much of the '90s must have seemed like a wonderful time. Life
in America, inspired perhaps by a cool new president, was fresh and fun again.
Never mind that each evening's newscast was filled with allegations of illicit affairs
by former girlfriends of the president. That was part of his persona. You knew those
stories were probably true, but that was part of being "Slick Willie."
Besides, didn't he make up for it by playing his sax on the Arsenio Hall Show?
Financial scandals and issues with interns? No big deal it was how he ran the
country, and not his personal life, that was most important, right? Poll numbers soared,
and soon Bill and Co. were given a second term.
Time for a little symbolism,
Imagine if you will an immaculate home with an impeccable front lawn. Not a blade
of grass is out of place, not a single weed to be found. Each shrub has been carefully
manicured, each tree pruned to perfection.
The family can often be found there, and they frolic about each day among the


animals of the forest, singing and dancing and full of life. (Stay with me.)
Walk around the comer of the house to the back yard, though, and you find a different
story. Litter abounds and the grass is knee high and full of weeds. Ungodly things slither
about. It is dark, and threatening. '
That's the Clinton Administration in a nutshell. At first glance, it appears utopia has
broken out. Love is in the air, coolness abounds. The federal budget has been balanced.
But look a little closer, and issues begin to appear.
Mr. Clinton had been in office less than a month when the World Trade Center
Towers were first attacked, on Feb. 26, 1993. It was the first of a series of attacks on
America and American interests over those eight years. And, with the world's best-
equipped and most effective military force at his disposal, Mr. Clinton did little or
nothing to defend the country.
Six died in that first attack on the Trade Centers. Nineteen died in the attack on
Khobar Towers in 1996. More than.200 died when terrorists blew up two east African
embassies in 1998. Seventeen perished when terrorists blew a hole in the USS Cole in
2000.
We reportedly shot a missile at a terrorist camp in Afghanistan following the embassy
bombings. Might as well have been a bottle rocket.
More symbolism ahead.
You are walking across a schoolyard, and the bully of the playground comes up and
punches you in the gut. That's what happened to the U.S. in the 1990s. Somebody came'.
up and punched us in the gut several times. Each time, Bill Clinton offered precious
little resistance. On Sept. 11, 2001, the same school bully came up and punched us in
the gut again. This time, George W. Bush took a two-by-four and bonked him over the
head with it. As you read this, W is still swinging that two-by-four.
Our budget deficit these days is quite substantial more than it has ever been and
Bush poll numbers are far less than those.enjoyed by Slick Willie.
W. could have taken a different road. Learned how to play the saxophone. Checked
out the newest intern. Worked on his poll numbers. But that would have passed the
problem on to the next president to have to solve. And who knows how powerful the
world's network of terrorism would be by then, and more importantly, how expensive it
will be to stop them.
Too bad we didn't solve the problem when it was a little more manageable, and a
little less expensive -- back in the 1990s.


Growing national debt one indicator of need


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

M ost of the
problems in
Washington
these
days are almost beyond
the comprehension of the
average person. Take the
nap9gbi forexap ,x le:
It has risen to $9:5 triion. ,
It.is the proverbial 800-
pound gorilla in the room
that nearly everyone in
Washington pretends
doesn't exist.
When President Bush made the decision to invade
Iraq and asked Congress to back him, his speeches
didn't make mention of the fact that the nation was
already swimming in red ink and the war would require
borrowing billions of dollars more and increasing the
debt.
The federal government's budget deficit the short-
term debt Congress acquires when it doesn't have enough
money to pay all its expenses is expected to rise to $482
billion in 2009, according to an Associated Press story.


The cost of waging war in Iraq and Afghanistan are big
factors.
As a nation, the last time we had an annual surplus
was the final year of the Clinton Administration in 1999.
We had a Republican Congress. We were not af war.
The economy was doing well enough that Clinton and
Congress were debating what to do with the surplus.
But two ongoing wars in the Middle East, $4 gasoline
and billions in bad mortgage loans have wiped out our
surplus and our sense of invulnerability. The globalization
qf our economy has sent most ofou manufacturing jobs
over eas.
Our porous order wit Meio as turned even small
American towns into havens for migrant workers who
have no health insurance and must use our public health
facilities for medical treatment. Most of the children need
Spanish-speaking teachers, which places an additional
burden on our public schools. The illegal residents
place a heavy burden on law enforcement and federal
immigration officials.
Our national campaign system allows hundreds of
millions of dollars from big money interests to be poured
into our national campaigns, tainting our national politics
and making our members of Congress slaves to big
corporate monby. As a result, corporate America is taking
over small communities and their newspapers, strangling
the free. exercise of ideas and speech, and bribing elected


to change Washington

federal officials with massive campaign contributions. I
favor limiting federal campaigns to a maximum of $1,000
for any person, corporation or political organization of
any description. No exceptions, no loopholes.
One of the mysteries of our system of government is
the federal Electoral College. No one has told me why
we need it. The Electoral College decided who would be
our President in the year 2000, not the voters. If memory .
serves me, Al Gore won the national popular vote by
about 500,000'ballots, which means more Americans
voted for him than George W. Bush. But Bush managed
to takeJJorida b;a razor thin margin, and he wound up
with more.electoral votes. .
The Electoral College isn't needed in our system of i
government. Our elected officials should be selected by
a majority of the people who participate in the election,
not by a group of wealthy academics and political insider'
who make up the Electoral College. It should be outlawed
for the sake of the American people.
There's a lot of problems that need solutions in this
country, but we can't correct what is wrong as long as we;
condone a campaign contribution system which I believe j
has evolved into a form of bribery.
What about the $9.5 trillion national debt? -
It will continue to grow as long our federal officials
are free to raise obscene amounts of money from the
powerful corporate lobbyists who run this country.


Letter To The Editor

More than bricks and mortar
When you read stories like the ones we're reading and hearing
about Bonnie George and Deborah Hamberger, it just about makes
you sick to your stomach.
Isn't this supposed to be America? A place where we have
freedom of speech, fair business practices and justice?
No matter how you cut or slice it, this suspension without pay
and all the other ramifications are nothing but a travesty ofjustice,
a wanton destruction of our God given rights as rendered under the
Constitution and above all, not to forget an absolute abuse of
power. That's what it is.
A post office is more than bricks and mortar. It's supposed to be
an institution to serve its patrons. I, for one, have never doubted the
integrity of Debbie, Bonnie, or any employee. Seems to me 45 plus
years employment between these two ladies, without incident, should
count for something.
I think what we need here is a positive resolution to this sick,
mean-spirited and demeaning situation, and it needs to be put to rest
now!
The ripple-down effect of this conflict.is sickening, and will be
felt for years and years by the entire community.
It is simply UNAMERICAN.

School Board, from Page 9


she told me that it had happened more that a
month before. Apparently, a boy grabbed her by
the neck with both hands and threw her to the
hardwood floor, calling her something unprintable,
and then casually threatened to kill her. All
because he wanted her place in line and she said
no.
My little girl is 11. The bully who wrapped his
hands around her neck is 14. He is several inches
taller and easily 20 pounds heavier than she is.
To make matters worse, his bullying behavior
had been slowly escalating throughout the school
year. He had constantly teased her, and then
progressively added pushing and shoving. But I
had no idea it had gone this far.
"Don't get mad, mom. He already got
suspended and I don't want anymore problems,"
she told me after she casually let slip the extent of '
the boy's behavior. "Besides, he's mostly left me
alone since then, so why remind him?"
Don't get mad? Well, I guess that wasn't so
hard after all I skipped over mad in a heartbeat
and went straight to livid, horrified, furious, and
fuming. I wanted the little punk arrested.
My husband calls me the "momma bear" when
I get like this. Someone messing with any of my
children tends to make me go a little ballistic.
Maybe a little more than a little.
My mind raced with questions Why didn't
she tell me? Strangled?! Did she get hurt? What
provoked it? It was a month ago?! How many
times has this happened before? Suspended?! Why
didn't the school call?
I was looking for my shoes, ready to march
straight up to school and unleash the bear when
I was very kindly reminded that it was closed.
Hmpf. I felt very helpless for the next 15 hours.
After several phone calls the next day we found
out that the situation had in fact been "resolved"


many weeks earlier, the same day it happened.
My husband was the one who made the calls no
doubt trying to spare school personnel the wrath
of Kellie.
"We usually try to call home and notify the
parent. Somehow this slipped through the cracks."
Oh, and I think there was a "sorry" somewhere in
there, too.
Sorry?! That wasn't going to cut it. So we
continued to try to figure out where the breakdown
in communication took place. Someone else told
us that they often try, but there is no policy that
says they have to call the parents of a child who
gets bullied.
Ah, policy. So that's what it comes down to.
How can I protect my child if I don't know
what's happening at school? Shouldn't I be
notified if my child is hurt while she's in their care
- especially at the hands of another student?
These are the questions that I presented to the
Board. And they listened.
The next time the Board met, just two weeks
after I asked for their consideration, they approved
the addition of a new clause in their anti-bullying
policy:
"Reasonable efforts shall be made by the
school administration to notify parents at any time
their child has been the victim of misbehavior
which results in their child's injury or potential
injury."
Reasonable efforts. I can live with that.
Like I said before, the Board needs us just as
much as we need them. They can't effectively
do their job without our help. And it isn't just
about policy. They make decisions all the time
about school programs, lunches, facilities, and
transportation. With each motion they make, they
ask for discussion and input before the final vote
is taken. Just think what decisions might be made
because your voice was heard first.

Ballplayers who retire should have the courage to stay retired


By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor


I just can't understand the 7
people in pro football anymore.
I have been around long enough
to have witnessed every Super
Bowl that has been played. I have
watched the likes ofBroadway Joe
predict a win, then go out and "Do
it!" I have seen some real blow outs in this most watched
of all pro sporting events worldwide. I have witnessed the
resurgence of Da Bears, who won the 1985 Super Bowl.
Then there was the Dolphins team that went
undefeated winning a Super Bowl. The Patriots tried to
become the second team to have an undefeated season
just this past year, and win the Super Bowl in the process,
but failed losing to the Giants.
What I really can't understand is why retirement
doesn't really mean retirement for some of the greatest
players Who have ever played professional football.
This season has started off with a story that has flooded
every sports show on television, and caught headlines in

At Bronson Motor Speedway

Kase gets first victory i
There was lots of excitement at Bronson Motor
Speedway Saturday night as all kids in attendance got
to take a lap around the speedway in a racecar. To the
delight of many fans, Jim Higginbotham (Who races in the
Sportsman Division) brought his Busch Grand National
Michael Waltrip Racing NAPA Racecgr, equipped with a
ride along seat, out to the speedway and took several folks
for a lap or two around the track. Several drivers brought
their machines onto the front stretch during intermission
and helped take the kids for a ride!
The action then heated up in the Feature Races with 11
Limited Sportsman racers taking to the track for their 30-
lap feature. Gainesville's Harold Edwards would take the
early lead with Jim Higginbotham in tow. Charging through
the field was Chiefland's Shelton Bowers, High Springs
Matt Blum and Odessa's Rick Kase. Blum and Bowers
would make contact, causing both to spin. Edwards could
not avoid Blum and made contact, ending Blum's night.
Rick Kase'in" i's Me3 d Coi Interioris Machine then
pased Edwards and charged tohs first victory at Bronson
Motor Speedway. Inglis's Mike Baker cruised to second,
with Edwards having to settle for third.


most every newspaper for the past several weeks. It's all
been about one player who changed his mind and wants
to continue to play after announcing his retirement.
I wonder if Brett Favre ever stopped to really think
about why he was able to start 253 straight games as a
Green Bay Packer, which enabled him to break and set all
those passing records, and even win a Super Bowl during
his career in Green Bay.
Football is and has always been a team sport, and
it was the team that protected him all those games and
allowed him to get off his passes. It was the big tough
offensive lineman over the years, and the coaching staff
drafting players to protect him that allowed Favre to
become the superstar he became in Green Bay.
But now he has chosen to take the path of so many of
the best players who simply refuse to hang it up, even
after they say it's time. He repays his team by causing all
this turmoil by changing his mind.
Did he forget it was his interception thrown against
the Giants in last season's playoff game that stopped his
team's drive to the Super Bowl? How about the fact his
total interceptions thrown last season were up as well?
I don't fault anything the Packers management staff
did. They just wanted him out since he had formally
retired and the team moved on with Aaron Rogers at
quarterback.
I remember four years ago when the Packers drafted

Aaron Rogers, Favre was quoted as saying it was not his
job to help teach or work with Rogers.
Why the media has made such a big deal from this
mind change that Favre had is beyond me. I feel his mind
change is all about the money thing, not his dedication to
Pro Football.
And the teams that wanted him and talked to the
Packers are certainly short on intelligence and memory of
other players who refused to stay retired. The New York
Jets, who now have Favre, called Vinny Testaverde out
of retirement. And we certainly don't want to forget the
cost of a Jets' No. 4 jersey is now about $80. The Packers'
No.4 jersey is now going for about $10, according to one
sports writer.
Is pro football all about the money? You bet it is, from
each team's best interest to each individual's best interest.
The Jets this coming season, even with a great young
Coach, and four number one draft picks on their offensive
line, will be no better off with Favre. The Packers will be
no worse off without Favre.
Football is a team sport, with the Super Bowl is the
goal for each team. Don't look for Favre's new team to be
there. Don't look for big numbers from Favre this season
op the field. He may have one or two big games left, but
not for a 16-game season. It takes a team effort to get to
the big game.
Of course, that is just my own opinion.



in Sportsman Division
In Super Stock action, Dunnellon's Brent Cooper cruised
to victory again and in victory lane announced it was he and
his wife Alden's 12th'wedding anniversary! Now that's
a great way to spend your anniversary winning races!
Bronson's Tommy Ausburn would take home second,
followed by Williston's Larry Welter, Jr and Monteverde's
Kyle Peters in fourth.
Lots of great racing in the Thunder Stock division and
when it all shook out, Monteverde's James Peters would
pilot his No. 5 machine to victory lane. Several laps of
racing with Larry Welter, Jr and his Dad Larry, Sr. put on a
heck of a show. They would have to settle for second and
third followed by Aaron Welter and Norm Brown.
In Hornet Action, 14-year-old Brandon Watson cruised
to victory lane and Gainesville's Juan Montelvo would
also take home a first place trophy in his division.
Next Saturday Night the "Back to Grassroots" Racing
continues with the Limited Sportsman, Super .Stocks,
Thunder Stocks and Hornet Divisions. Remember Race

SpriHngouse Quilters

Springhouse Quilters will be back to their regular monthly meeting with
demonstrations and workshops for the next few months. Springhouse took time
off from their own quilting to host three 4-H sewing-quilting camps. Young
people can get so excited when they realize that it is really not hard to make a
quilt. We hope the young people will be able to continue their quilting-sewing
enthusiasm as they become adults.
August will find the day members having an Eleanor Burs certified instructor,
Mandy Ramaswami, teaching a special Dream Catcher project. This will be a fun,
quick project and is a small project that can be finished quickly. The night group
will also have a couple of interesting workshops during August. Mary Kay Lucas
and Terry Major will again present another stack and whack project and Shirley
Joiner will be leading a flying geese workshop. The night group has been working
on those wonderful, wacky, "X" block quilts. Terry Major has completely finished
one quilt and is working on several others. These are quick, easy quilting projects
that will make wonderful Christmas gifts for friends or family members.
The night group quilters have also been busy making "Calendar" quilts. Shirley
Joiner provided the instruction and teaching of this project. We anticipate seeing
some of these quilts in the next quilt,show hosted by Springhouse Quilters.
It has been wonderful to have the Lancaster workgroup with Mr. Allen out to
the Springhouse site working on making and keeping things looking clean. We
appreciate all the hard, hot work they do for us.

Humane Society plans next Bark 'NPurr

By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

SMichelle Hagen, Director of Education for the Humane Society of Levy County,
received approval last week from the Town of Bronson Council to use the Bo Diddley
Memorial Park for the -Second Annual Bark 'N' Purr Charity Concert scheduled Feb. 28.
SThe same fundraising event held earlier this year attracted nearly 3,000 attendees and
raised approximately $14,000, according to Hagen. The money, collected from all Bark
'N' Purr events has been designated to pay for land and building costs for a new HSLC
facility. There is currently no Humane Society facility in Levy County.
The event will encompass another sanctioned barbeque cook-off with the addition
that paid admission includes the opportunity to sample the cuisine.
Other returning activities include the kids' snow slope, games, and the High-flying
Frisbee Rescue Dogs. Local bands will also perform.
Event organizers promise another popular headliner, but declined to give a name.
"(The performer) is a top country artist who currently has several number one hits, and
is still holding on to the number one chart as we speak," Hagen said. Due to contract
negotiations, the artist's name in not available for release.

Who's training who?

People would come from miles around to watch me
train my black Lab Leroy. Not because he was so smart;
just nobody had ever seen a dog swim the back-stroke.
Leroy wasn't what you would call 'full blooded.' In fact.
I highly suspect his mom might have engaged in some sort
of twisted affair with a sire of the feline persuasion. ,
Like all labs, Leroy loved to fetch, but he was also
deathly afraid of water. It was sure something to see when '
those two driving forces collided. If I'd of had any business
sense I'd have charged people admission to watch him go
and gotten richer than whoever owns that talking Gecko.
Most folks were a might skeptical after hearing the tales
of the backstroking dog. I'd see them shaking B AKTN 7W TA T
their heads as I warmed him up with a few JBU
runs on dry land. Then, to my shame, I'd throw
that training dummy way out across the bayou.. Guy E. Shmie ld
Leroy wouldn't hesitate. He'd tear off at full speed and lay out across
that water, landing with a tremendous splash. There'd always be that split second of
silence as Leroy disappeared under the surface. (I knew from experience he was under
there contemplating his big mistake.) Then, once he realized what he'd done, he'd shoot
up from there like a school of piranhas was snacking on his tail.
I'm not sure how long you actually have to walk on water to qualify for sainthood,
but I'm sure Leroy would've deserved at least an honorable mention. He'd be whooping
those gangly front legs like a nuclear powered paddle boat. It sounded like an angry
beaver tail-slapping symposium.
The poor bayou had never taken such a beating, and it'd cough him up every time.
His head would be riding two or three feet off the surface, and just when you thought he
was about to drown, he'd'lay back and start that famous Leroy back-stroke.
Over on the bank you never heard such cackling in all your life, and it was all at my
little buddy's expense. It was downright shameful, but I took some comfort in knowing
everybody else was laughing too.
But anyway It's sad a lot of folks misjudged Leroy on the basis of his one little
shortcoming. The fear of water was such a small part of his life. Thankfully, ole' Leroy
never took it all to heart. He never let his faults define him. He just kept on plugging
along, wagging that tail, loving, and living life to the fullest. You'd have thought he
wrote,the Scripture: I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well. Psalms 139:14 NASB
For example, one day I brought Leroy on a teal hunting trip. My dad scoffed, "Leave
him home, son. He just ain't gon' make no hunting dog.".
Boy was dad surprised. Leroy didn't lose a single bird that day in chest high Johnson
grass. That dog had a nose that could trail a gnat poot through a fertilizer farm.
Leroy also turned out to be quite the fisherman. One summer, when the bayou dried
up, he sloshed around out in there in the shallows until he wrestled his jaws around a
nice mess of big catfish.
Another time Leroy got lost several miles from home. Mom took me back to look for
him for two days. The third day I was sitting out on the front step with my head down
praying, trying not to let anybody see me cry, when suddenly I felt a big wet tongue rake
across my face. I looked up and there he was, wagging his big happy tail.
I was blessed to have Leroy as my friend in those formative yeats of my life. He
was the best dog a fellow could ever have. He.never let anyone label him, (though they
surely tried), and he was mighty quick to forgive. Maybe there are a few things we, i '
could learn from ourfurry friends.

Log Cabin Quilters met Aug. 14, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. One of our
talented quilters has finished piecing a Log Cabin Top that is beautiful. The colors are
light and dark and that makes the top so beautiful. When quilted it will be used as a
raffle for a worthy project.
My granddaughter and great-granddaughter have been with me for a week and
Monday we went to Camp Caruth. With about 70 campers we made pillows and we had
a great time. Tuesday we went back for the dedication of the Environmental Building
where the campers can learn all about plants, trees and nature. We have been part of the
building for several years and at last it is ready.
Nick Turner and six boys were out Wednesday and got the yard mowed and some
flowerbeds cleaned. They do a great job. Thanks Lancaster.
The quilters' lunch was so good with fried okra, fried green tomatoes, fish sticks,
cheese grits, lots of salads, pecan cake, Shelley's chocolate chip cookies, and so much
more.

Ag Commissioner scorns federal handling of salmonella outbreak


By Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

Charles H. Bronson, Florida's Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner, appeared earlier this month in
Washington DC before a congressional subcommittee
regarding the federal government's response to the ongoing
salmonella outbreak and the impact that Florida's tomato
industry has experienced.
"Millions of dollars lost and yet there is still not one shred
of evidence suggesting that Florida-grown tomatoes were the
source of this outbreak," Bronson told the House Committee
on Energy and Commerce's Oversight and Investigations
Subcommittee. "There has got to be a way to protect public
health while minimizing collateral damage to an industry."
Since April, 1401 persons.have been infected with the
Salmonella Saintpaul that federal officials from the Food and
Drug Administration and the Center for Disease Control had
originally pointed to tomatoes as the cause. While tomatoes
available at the onset of the outbreak have- not been fully
cleared, the CDC has now determined that peppers may in


fact be the culprit.
"At present, information indicates that jalapefio peppers
and serrano peppers grown, harvested, or packed in Mexico
are the cause of some clusters and are major food vehicles
for the outbreak," the CDC stated in an Aug. 8 news release.
"Although tomatoes currently on the market are safe, raw
tomatoes consumed early in the outbreak are still under
investigation."
"Food service providers, restaurateurs, and retailers may
resume offering customers any type of tomato, including
raw red plum tomatoes, raw red Roma tomatoes, and raw
red round tomatoes, from.any region," the FDA states on its
website www.foodsafety.gov.
"As Florida's food safety regulator," Bronson told
congress, "I believe it is critical that we make whatever
changes are necessary in the system to protect public health
and safety, limit the financial damages that accrue on the
industry that is implicated in situations like this and restore
consumer confidence that our food supply is safe to eat."
Florida has the largest state department of agriculture in the
country with over 3,700 employees, covering not only the


normal duties regarding plants and animals, but everything
from food safety and forestry to consumer services and
aquaculture, Bronson told congress.
"Put another way, we have a great deal of "boots on the
ground" that can be activated quickly and efficiently to assist
federal agencies during times of crisis," he said.
Bronson reminded members of congress that Florida has
numerous experiences cooperating with federal agencies,
especially during hurricane efforts. "I feel we are well
prepared, therefore, to offer great assistance during outbreaks
such as this," he said. "Unfortunately, ifFDA chooses to limit
the information they share with states, we are likewise limited
in how useful our assistance will be to them."
"Mr. Chairman," Bronson said near the end of his
address, "As a sixth-generation farmer and rancher, I know
every time a grower puts something into the ground we take a
risk that it may be destroyed by a weather-related event such
as a hurricane or a drought. Pest and diseases can also wreck
havoc on a crop, a fact that Florida growers know all too
well. But I can tell you we never anticipate that our business
will be destroyed by an action of the federal government."

Rule No. 40D-2.091: Publica-
tions Incorporated by Reference
- The District's Basis of Review
(Part B) of the Water User Permit
Information Manual is proposed
to be amended to specify how
to satisfy the Water Use Permit
flow meter accuracy verification
reporting requirements currently
contained in Chapter 40D-2,
F.A.C., Water Use Permits. In
order'to demonstrate compli-
ance with flow meter testing
and accuracy requirements the
amendments require documen-
tation of test equipment operator
competency and test equipment
calibration, a diagram and pic-
ture depicting the configuration
and location of the test .equip-
ment, flow meter and pump, and
use of the Flow Meter Accuracy
Verification Form to report the
results of the testing. Alterna-
tive methods to demonstrate
compliance with the meter accu-
racy requirements are allowed
for existing systems that would
have to be retrofitted in order to
allow for the specified testing.
Clarifications are made to the
procedure for reporting pump-
age when a flow meter is not
functioning correctly. In addition,
staff has moved some existing
language from one chapter of
the Basis of Review to another
to consolidate related provisions
and to clarify the process.

Nukes, from Page 1
the full Levy County Commission and was part of the state's electrical Power Plant Siting
Act administered through the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, the only state
agency that licenses power facilities.
Progress Energy officials estimate the two nuclear reactors proposed for southwest Levy
County would generate more than $100 million annually in property tax revenues, with about
half going to the Levy County Commission and half to the Levy County School board.
The plant itself would use between 100 million and 130 million gallons of saltwater, drawn
from the Cross Florida Barge Canal for cooling the nuclear reactors. The company would
draw approximately one million gallons of water daily from the Florida Aquifer for drinking
water, personal and sanitary use, fire protection and plant process water.
About 800 full-time employees would work at the nuclear power site and approximately
2,700 construction workers would build the two nuclear reactors. Large pipelines would be
constructed from the plant to the barge canal to carry coolingwater to the site and away frori
it. Transmission lines would also be constructed from the site southward. ,
Former Inglis Commissioner Betty Berger said the Town of Inglis and several.hundred
more residents would be impacted by, the proposed nuclear power project. She said there
is insufficient water for the project and she said the Westinghouse AP-1000 reactors that
Progress Energy plans to use at the site have yet to be approved by the Nuclear Regulatory
Agency.
The original design of the AP-1000 reactors was approved by the NRC. However,
Westinghouse amended the design and the new design is being reviewed by NRC. An NRC
spokeswoman said the review process will be completed in the year 2011. Progress Energy.
doesn't plan to begin operating the first of the two Levy nuclear reactors until 2016. The
second would begin operating in 2017.
Berger was also concerned about the impact on the aquifer of the area. She noted Tarmac
is planning to build a limestone blasting operation at a proposed mine that would be next doo6
to the nuclear generation site. She questioned whether the combined impacts of the limestone
blasting at the Tarmac site and the nuclear plant water withdrawals would damage the
underground limestone in the aquifer, a source of drinking water for Inglis and Yankeetown.:
County Commissioner Nancy Bell said citizens had called asking her about whether
customers would begin seeing a rate increase related to plant construction before the facility
was ever built. She asked for an explanation.
.Danny Roderick, who heads the project for Progress Energy, said the Florida Legislature
allows power companies to begin collecting money early because it recognized that some
money must be borrowed to finance construction.
Commissioner Tony Parker said he thought there would be more construction workers than
the 2,700 Roderick said would work on the project.
Roderick said there will be a ripple effect in the economy, with the massive construction
project generating so much economic activity that it creates other employment in the county.
He said they also are beginning a "growtyour own" program that will enable the company to
train people who live here to work at the plant. He said they are focusing on young people. \
Chiefland realtor Doug King didn't ask any questions, but expressed his support for the
project, calling the Progress Energy proposal a "Godsend for Levy County."
"I'm confident the Department of Environmental Protection and Nuclear Regulation
Commission will take whatever steps are necessary to protect our environment and the citizens
of our county," he said.
Resident Charles Goodman asked what would happen to the nuclear waste at the site and
could it be reprocessed. Rodbrick responded that the site will be equipped to store spent fuel,
but he said reprocessing is not being done in the United States. He said foreign countries are
reprocessing fuel using American technology, but not the U.S.
Doug Gatelein of Yankeetown told residents not to be afraid of nuclear power. He said he
has worked around nuclear power for most of his life. He said he lives two miles from ihe
Crystal River nuclear power plant known as CR-3. If Progress Energy builds the new complex
in Levy County, he said he will live two miles from two AP-1000 reactors.
"Compared to the old technology, these are really, really great," he said.
Ron Brinkman of the Sierra Club said the club opposes the'proposed project, and he said
reprocessing nuclear waste would make it easier to manufacture nuclear bombs. He said th6
bigger issue will be cost.
"We don't know how much it will increase power bills," he said.
Ted Medlin from Dunnellon, representing the Rainbow River Railroad Committee, said
building a new railroad track near their properties would devalue their homes. He wondered
if Progress Energy would compensate people whose properties were significantly devalued
by construction of the railroad.
Roderick said the company has not made a final decision on where to build the rail line. He
said Progress Energy is examining a one-mile wide corridor to determine the best location.
The 13-mile rail line would connect the plant to the existing CSX line in Dunnellon.
During construction of the plant beginning around 2010, the line would be used to transport
large pieces of equipment to the site three to six times per week. After construction, Roderick
said the line would be used less frequently for transporting equipment for maintenance, when
it is more feasible than transporting by truck or barge. The rail line will not be used to transport
new or spent nuclear fuel, Progress Energy officials said.
Medlin said he did not feel he had received a satisfactory answer from Roderick on the
reimbursement question. Roderick said Progress Energy bought the property for a rail line
years ago before many of the homes were built. He said the state has several statutes that will
govern what Progress Energy must do if it impacts property. He added that the exact rail line
corridor has not been selected.
