Four Williston residents were arrested Friday night in a
drug raid at the home of a woman that investigators said
was snorting cocaine as a SWAT Team broke through her
front door.
Krystal Diane Wilcox, 44, 20911 N.E. 4" St., owner of
the home where the raid took place, was arrested on charges
of possession of crack cocaine with intent to distribute,
possession of.cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia
and maintaining a drug dwelling. Total bond was set at
$72,000.
"She said when we kicked the door in, she was in the
bathroom snorting cocaine," said Lt. Scott Anderson, who
heads the sheriff's office drug investigation unit. Officers
found 1 gram of powder cocaine in the bathroom.
Wilcox allowed her home to be used by drug dealers.
Anderson said drug dealer Tyronza Woodard, 30, of
Williston, who is serving 22 years in prison for selling
cocaine, told investigators he made car payments and

Turnout could be modest in primary election


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Three of the biggest political races in the county will be decided
Tuesday, but the turnout could be modest for the primary election.
Supervisor of Elections Connie Asbell said she is anticipating a 45-
percent voter turnout for the primary election.
"There's a lot of voter, apathy,"Asbell said. "Either they think their vote
won't count or it won't make a difference."
She is predicting a slightly higher vote than four years ago when only
41 percent of the registered voters cast a ballot. She said more voters could
turn out Tuesday because the sheriff's race will be decided, along with the
District 3 County Commission race and the clerk's race.
Four years ago, the race for sheriff wasn't decided until November
because Sheriff Johnny Smith, a Democrat, was being challenged by
Republican Brett Beauchamp.
Smith is opposed this year by Bobby McCallum, his former third in
command, and Beauchamp is supporting McCallum, a Democrat
District 3 Commissioner Sammy Yearty is opposed by Al Macri. Both
are Democrats.
Clerk of Circuit Court Danny J. Shipp is challenged by Bruce A.
Greenlee. Both are Democrats.
Levy County has traditionally been dominated by Democrats. A


Republican has never won a county level elective office in the 163-year
history of the county.
Also on the ballot is District 1 County Commissioner Tony Parker, a
Democrat, and his challengers, Democrats Dave Bibby and John Meeks
and Republican Abraham Blitch.
District 5 County Commissioner Danny Stevens is opposed by
Republican Jerry Robinson and Democrat Cal Byrd.
Property Appraiser Francis Akins, a Democrat, is being challenged by
Republican Osborne "Ozv Barker and Democrat Anthony Phillips.
Asbell and Tax Collector Linda Fugate drew no opposition and
Superintendent of Schools candidates, Democrat Jeff Edison and
Republican Robert "Bob" Hastings, won't meet until the Nov. 4 general
election.
The primary will narrow the list of choices for the District 10 state
representative seat. Republicans Don Curtis and Mike Williams hope to
win the right to meet either Democrat Leonard L. Bembry or Julie Conley
on Nov. 4.
U.S. Rep. Ginny Brown-Waite will face Jim King in the Republican
primary and one of them will advance to meet the winning Democrat,
either Carol Castagnero, John Russell or H. David "the flag-pole sitter"
Werder.

Parker works for family-friendly county

District 1 County Commissioner Tony Parker said he has worked the
past eight years to make Levy County a family-friendly place where the
needs of young and old are met.
"Since I came on the board I wanted to be a part of making Levy
County family-oriented, the rural way of life," he said. "I've always
wanted to protect that, and our natural resources, and way of life."
Parker. who owns Parker Land Clearing, has been self-employed
most of his life. He is married and has two grown sons.
He explained that making the county family-oriented means
bringing jobs and industry to Levy County. He said he has worked to
bring Levy County-friendly businesses to the county, and that these are
businesses that do not sacrifice the environment or drive out local small
businesses.
Parker wants his own two sons to be able to live and work in Levy
County, and to be able to do that, they will need jobs, he said.
See Parker, Page 12


Bibby vows to clean up government

Dave Bibby doesn't mince words when it comes to county
government.
The District 1 county commission candidate says he wants to clean
up Levy County government, get rid of waste and is hoping Levy
County voters are in a mood to clean house on Election Day.
Bibby said he has sought change in the past, but hasn't gotten far.
The county commission has ignored his requests to go to single
member districts, he said. A single memberdistrict system would mean
commissioners would be elected only by the voters in their district, not
county-wide as it stands now.
He said they also rejected his suggestion for a 20-25 year economic
plan he says would not only bring jobs and business to the county, but
would protect existing businesses as well. He proposed the plan the last
time he ran for a commission seat.
"I advocated that last time. I had a few of those good old boys tell me
to crawl under a rock," he said.
See Bibby, Page 12


Meeks stresses accountability, jobs

Bronson Ace Hardware store is one of the businesses that makes up
the heart of the town's business district, and its manager. 32-year-old
John Meeks, is running for the Levy County Commission.
Meeks said the fact that he is a young married man with a 4-month-
old son and a two-and-a-half-year old son at home gives him a unique
perspective on county politics in the District 1 race.
"I look .at my little children and I wonder about the future of the
county," he said. "I want this to be a place where my children can live
and not be forced out by high taxes. I don't want people to come in and
force local people out."
The last statement about not wanting local people forced out; refers
to new people coming in and wanting to change the way things are in
Levy County, Meeks said. Citing one example, he said he doesn't want
someone moving in next to a farm and complaining about the smells and
the odors of the animals and wanting to change things.
See Meeks, Page 12


Blitch would put people before politics

Abraham Blitch said he would put people before politics.
"' just don't believe the voice of the people is being carried but,"
said Blitch, aDistrict 1 county commission candidate. "That's my whole
thing people, not politics."
Blitch, a Republican, owns and operates a trucking business and a
nursery, rewholesale and landscape design and installation business. He
and his wife Leah and their three children live between Trenton and
Bronson.
He said he first became concerned about government when the Levy
County Commission adopted the tourism tax. He was opposed to the tax,
saying it was levied to promote one group of businesses. He said the tax
is paid by anyone who rents a motel room, condominium room, or renter
if they have less than a six-month contract.
"Why can't the businesses get together and form their own organization
and do their own advertising," Blitch said.
He said the Levy County Commission has taken the "corporate

Special guests Rick Burham
The Greater Chiefland Area Chamber of Commerce got two unexpected
visitors Aug. 13. Alfonso Council and David E. Brown, both of Crystal River,
came to town to visit Carolyn Cohens, author of "Black America Series
- Levy County Florida." Brown had previously reviewed the book because
it contained a picture of his wife. He showed the book to Council, who also
found a familiar picture inside. The picture, on Page 76 of the book, included
his father, Alexander Council, who had previously worked on the railroad in
the early part of the 20th century. Cohens said she was previously unsure of
who the man in the picture was. Council cleared up the mystery, and spent
time talking with Cohens about the artifacts inside the Chiefland Museum.
Pictured above, left to right, are Alfonso Council, Carolyn Cohens, and David
E. Brown.

Recreational grant monies arrive in Chiefland
Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor i


By his own admission, Aug. 15 was very likely the last visit to Chiefland by outgoing
District 10 State Representative Will Kendrick.
Most agree he went out with a bang.
Kendrick presented city officials with nearly $170,000 in grant monies, awarded to
Chiefland as part of the Recreational Development Assistance Program. The grants are
given out each year by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
The ceremony was originally scheduled for Delma Locke Park, but heavy rains pushed
the contingent indoors at City Hall. There, Kendrick presented City Commissioner Teresa
Barron with two checks as Mayor Teal Pomeroy and Commissioners Frank Buie, Rollin
Hudson and Sammy Cason looked on. The first check, for $135,607 will be used to erect
a skateboard park at Delma Locke Park. The second, for $33,903, will be used to install a
basketball court at Strickland Park.
Barron thanked Kendrick for visiting Chiefland to present thecheck, and then recognized
numerous individuals in the crowd who had played apart in bringing the projects to
Chiefland. Later, she spoke of the grant process, and how Chiefland had succeeded in
getting funds approved.
The Recreational Development Assistance Program Grant process, she said, was
administered differently by state officials for the 2008-09 fiscal year.
"Usually what happens in the budget process is that they appropriate a certain amount
of money for the program and then rank the project applications," she said. "After that,
they fund the top projects and go down the list until the money runs out. What they did
this year was to fund all of the projects that had applications. They spread $24 million
evenly, percentage-wise, through the whole list. All. projects were funded with a lesser
amount than requested."
Chiefland had originally asked for $200,000 for the skateboard park, and $50,000 for
the basketball court. Despite the lower amount, Barron said city. officials were excited
when they found out that state monies were indeed on their way to Chiefland.
"We received a letter back in May saying that they thought this bill was going to go
through, and we have been excited ever since," she said, "We thought, with all the budget
cutbacks, that nothing was going to get funded."

An Open Letter To the Citizens of Levy County,

Hello, my name is Johnny Smith. Over the past 7 1/2 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; how-
ever the majority ofmy experience is with the Levy County Sheriffs Office. Professionally, I have served in the patrol division and criminal investigations divi-'
sion, working major case crimes. In 1997, I graduated from the 189*h Session of the F.B.I. National Academy. On a personal note, I am married to.MarciaAsbell
Smith of Bronson and we have one son, Landon, age 12. We attend the First Baptist Church of Bronson.
Your Sheriffs Office isin great shape! We have worked hard over the past eight years to meet the needs of our county asit 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 down 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 ofknown 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 ofthe
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-

Sheriff's Office touts new Internet program

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Knowledge is power.
That's what the Levy County Sheriff's Office is saying about a new Internet program
that can provide residents with near real time data on crimes in the county and in their
neighborhood.
Through a website known as crimereports.com, residents can type in a local address
and find out what type of crimes have been occurring. Or they can look at the entire
county.
Small icons will appear on road maps showing what types of crimes are occurring
and on what streets. Residents can choose the crimes they want to know about.
The idea behind the program is to keep residents informed of crimes as they occur.
Citizens armed with that type of knowledge are in a better position to protect themselves
and their families, according to sheriff's spokesman Lt. Evan Sullivan.
"We want to arm our citizens with the knowledge of when and where crime is
prevent them from being victims of crime," said Sullivan.
Sheriff Johnny Smith said the department is paying $50 per month for the right
to link its computers to the website. The website downloads information every night
around 5 a.m. concerning crime incidents sheriff's deputies have investigated in
unincorporated parts of Levy County the previous day. No human hands touch the
computers. The information is automatically dodnloaded in a secure way. Lt. Evan Sullivan of the Levy County Sheriff's Office points out the features of;
Smith said the sheriff's office formed a partnership with Public Enginesj a software crimereports.com, a new interactive tool to assist citizens in stopping crime.'
development company, to provide the crime data information to residents. Levy County Citizens can find out recent crime information on local addresses.
is the second sheriff's department in the state to take advantage of the program.
"The crime data provided will allow the department to publish local crime in near
real time on a crime reports website," Smith said in a written statement. "Users may also
elect to receive free e-mail crime alerts that are sent when crimes occur close to home
or near any other address of interest; such as a business address, school, or community
center."
To use the new program, residents should type crimereports.com in the search bar. A
map of the United States will appear. Click on the state of Florida. A legend will appear
with six locations listed, including Levy County. Click on Levy County and then click
on the types of crimes you want to research. Also type the address and click on the
time frame, whether it's a day, a week or several months, you wish to see. A map of the
neighborhood surrounding the address,you typed will appear. Small icons will appear on
maps showing the location of the crimes you requested.
Residents will not be able to access Chiefland and Williston. Both cities have their
own police departments and their computer data bases are not linked to the website.
Smith said crimereports.com program is part of the sheriff's office community
policing program and is aimed at keeping residents safe. He said Crime Reports will
also aid the sheriff's office by giving them visual maps that will allow supervisors how
to better deploy their manpower to deal with specific problem areas more effectively.

Democrats face off in District 10 primary


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Growth and opportunity. The two go
hand in hand, and will oftentimes feed upon
one another.
If Leonard Bembry has his way, growth
and opportunity will become fixtures across
the 10 counties of District 10, bringing
with them a higher standard of living for
residents who live there.
Bembry, of Greenville, is one of four
candidates for the seat being vacated
by Will Kendrick, who has termed out.
Fellow Democrat Julie Conley, along with
Republicans Don Curtis and Mike Williams
also seek the post.
Bembry said there is little doubt in
his mind as to the No. 1 issue facing the


district.
"It is growth we need to grow
some," he said. "We need some economic
development. New and better jobs would
help our district more than anything else
right now." Bembry
Other issues including educational
funding, affordable medical care and natural resources are just as important, he said.
The push to transfer the burden of educational funding from property taxes to state sales
taxes is not a wise choice, he said.
Amendment 5 is nothing more than a "tax swap amendment," he said.
"Sales tax will go up and down with the economy," he said. "Education is one of the
most critical issues we have, and putting it under a tax source that is not dependable,
there are a lot of unknowns. We don't need to submit our educational opportunities to that
unknown." I
Far too often, Bembry said, the young people of District 10 get their education and
then leave town for higher paying jobs elsewhere in Tallahassee, or Gainesville, or to
Jacksonville.
"Our greatest asset is young people," he said. "But they are leaving in droves. We need
to be able to keep our children at home."
Just as important, Bembry said, is available and affordable health care.
"There are new hospitals on the drawing boards in Levy and Hamilton Counties," he
said. "A lot of others sorely need updates. Access to good medical facilities in the district
is vitally important. I would like to see more people have good access to medical care.
"As a state representative, I would be front and center making these improvements
happen."
Bembry points to recent growth of the Greenville area as evidence of his ability to
do that. There, town officials took advantage of available federal and state grants, and in
doing so made the improvements needed to bring a number of new businesses to town.
"It cost aboilt $7 millionn" he 'said: "But by the time we gdt'our federal and state
monies, we only had to pay $2.2 million. We will get that money back in 2-3 years. From
there on out, it is called investment. We need to invest in infrastructure, education, and
anything else that creates'more and better jobs. We need to invest in it."
People experienced in writing grant applications are a valuable commodity, he added.
"We need to draw upon one another's experience," he said. "Each district has had
success in one area or another. There are a lot of federal and state monies out there. We
just need to understand the process and know what is available."
Available water, considered by many to be one of the district's key natural resources,
should not be transported to areas further south, he said.
"Water is a natural resource just as much so as beach frontage," he said. "Our water is
our natural resource, and it is not portable. We should ensure other areas of the state are
doiig everything they can to conserve before water is sent that way. If we do lend a hand,
it should be on a specific timeframe, not just an open door where our water goes south."
Bembry said he would like to see a group of qualified people from around the
district meet on a regular basis. People. from the business community, from the tourism
development community, from the academic community.
"It could be an effort with a lot of good things coming out," he said. "I am willing to
spend the time and effort it takes to get the job done. It is one thing to say we have those
problems, but another to say I have a plan and let's find solutions. People need to envision
what they want their county to look like 10 years from now."
Bembry and wife Susan have three children and eight grandchildren.

Julie Conley understands economics.
The current economic development
director for Jefferson County, formerly -
the city clerk and treasurer for the city of
Monticello, Conley said she has ideas to help
the small towns of North Central Florida
withstand the turbulent fiscal conditions
that have plagued much of the country.
Conley faces off against a trio of
candidates for the seat currently held
by Will Kendrick. Fellow Democrat
Leonard Bembry of Greenville, along with
Republican candidates Don Curtis and Mike
Williams, also seek the District 10 seat. The
district includes Hamilton, Madison, Taylor
and, Dixie Counties, along with portions
of Levy, Columbia, Wakulla, Alachua,
Jefferson and Franklin Counties.
Conley, also Monticello's first female
mayor, said fhe economy is the most
important issue facing residents in the .:'
district's 10 counties.
"It absolutely is," she said. "It comes up in Conley
every conversation I have across the district."
An important, underlying issue, she added, is infrastructure. Local city and county
budgets are simply not sufficient to handle big-ticket items such as the repair and
improvement of roads and bridges. ,
"The local city and county budgets are never going to be such that they can make these
infrastructure improvements, or even the initial investments," she said. "And without that,
it is pretty hard to attract any kind of industry."
That is where the state legislature should come into play, she said.
"The agencies that provide these resources need to be funded," she said. "Loan
programs and grant programs for small cities and counties are important."
Once the dollars begin to make their way down to the local level, and the necessary
improvements to infrastructure are made, Conley explained,"Those are the things that
have to happen before this part of Florida can start to attract the good industry and good
jobs that we need," she said.
Some areas of the state Conley singled out Levy County specifically residents are
making do with the resources they already have to attract business.
"Tourism -.especially ecotourism doesn't require a lot of infrastructure, .and that is
a good thing," she said. "Using things that you already have in place to improve your
bottom line is a good thing, as long as there is no adverse environmental impacts.
"One of the best examples of using what you have is Cedar 'Key. I have been so
impressed with how they turned a bad situation into a good one. The net ban could have
been a problem for those folks, but they turned it into a vibrant clam industry. They ought
to be commended for their resilience" .
Conley is a proponent of nuclear energy, and sees the proposed twin nuclear plants for
Levy County as being a good thing.
"I am excited about it," she said. "I hope that it continues to move forward. We need
to keep all our energy options on the table. I am supportive of the agricultural industry's
efforts to produce biofuel. I think we need to promote conservation, and the green
technologies as well. All of these options are at least worthy qf study."
"In the meantime we should make sure the energy we have is not only affordable, but
reliable too. Reliable is just as important as affordable. You can have cheap energy, but if
it is not reliable it doesn't matter how much.it costs."
Education is just as vital to the region as energy, Conley said, making area schools .a
vital concern.
"Improved schools are a 'biggee,'" she said. "If you talk to people who work ,in
education, they will tell you that they ought to have more of a say in the decisions being
made. I spent an informational day in a Columbia County school, and I heard that over
and over."
Conley said she would like the citizens of District 10 to fully understand her
qualifications for the job of representative.
"I am the only candidate who really understands the implications of the laws and
policies and mandates when they are actually applied to the people and the businesses
on the ground," she said. "Because of my experience in local government and economic
development, I have first hand experience in dealing with those. I can make those mandates
work."

Emergency responders train for unexpected nature of Autism


Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent

The Levy County Sheriff's Office hosted an autism
training workshop for local first responders last week to
bring awareness to the needs, concerns and fears of autistic
children and adults in emergency situations.
Workshop attendees included representatives from
police and fire departments in Williston and thiefland,
:Levy County Health Department, Bronson High School,
:Levy County Emergency Management, Board of County
"Commissioners, seven school district nurses, and all LCSO
'School Resource Officers, as well as several other LSCO
,employees.
Due to the nature of autism, a law enforcement officer,
firefighter, educator, or other authority figure may not
'receive the expected response when confronting a child or
'adult affected by the disorder, said Arthur Wallen, Director
,of the Center for Autism and Related Disabilities (CARD)
'at the University of Florida. In emergency situations it is
Critical that these first responders know how to effectively
(communicate, he added.
S Common misconceptions about people with autism'
:are that a person is uncooperative, on drugs or "crazy"
(because he or she is unresponsive to verbal commands or
overreactss to physical cofitact, Wallen said. Stress can also
over-stimulate, causing incoherent speech, gibberish, or
repetitive statements, as well as'reactions of hand and arm
flapping, object twirling, reduced eye-contact, and intense
"withdrawal. It can even result in the person trying to flee
the scene.
S"Autism is a lifelong neurological disability that affects
.a person's ability to communicate, understand language,
play and socially interact with others," according to a
CARD publication. The first signs of autism usually appear

Individuals with autism usually exhibit at least half
of the traits listed below. These symptoms can range
from mild to severe and vary in intensity from symptom
to symptom. In addition, the behavior usually occurs
across many different situations and is consistently
inappropriate for their age.
SDifficulty in mixing with other, children
SInappropriate laughing and giggling
SLittle or no eye contact
SApparent insensitivity to pain
SPrefers to be alone; aloof manner
SSpins objects


First responders listen to workshop briefers at the Levy County


as developmental delays before age three.
A common theme during the autism training was that
every case is different. "Autism can vary in looks and sizes
as much as in level or ability," Wallen said.
There are currently 61 residents of Levy County
registered with CARD 57 who are school-age and four
adults.
The first responders were educated in strategies to
apply when approaching a person who exhibits autistic
characteristics, such as giving only one command or
direction at a time, repeating or rephrasing when necessary,
and speaking slowly and non-threateningly.
Another strategy thatthe Sheriff's Office is implementing
is a 911 flagging system that will allow dispatch'operators
to see that a residence has special needs. Parents can

supply unlimited amounts of information that may help
emergency responders know what to expect for their
individual situation.
Following Wallen's presentation, community officials
met with four Levy County families who have children
with autism to discuss ways to improve safety and response
during emergency situations.
"The situation can go from zero to 10 in a snap," said
Tony Hill, who is raising her 13-year-old granddaughter
with autism. "Our situation changes every three to five
minutes."
"This class has been an eye opener," said Sgt. Max

no idea what it was like how organized you have to be

Fallen tree damages Chieflandfamily

Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A Chiefland family was startled on Aug. 14 when
jfhey heard a loud bang outside their home and lost their
'power a few seconds later.
The mystery was quickly solved when they walked
Through the front door to see their 1999 Lincoln Towncar
crushed under a tree in the driveway.
"I said, 'well thank you Jesus'," said homeowner
'Debbie Myers." "I said, at least no one was in the
'vehicle."
The tree fell during a rain shower. It wasn't particularly
windy that day, but Myers said the tree had apparently
died from having its limbs repeatedly trimmed by
Progress Energy.
* i "They've been trimming it ever since it. was big
,enough to be trimmed," she said.
SThe tree fell across the Lincoln Continental and
,damaged the Jeep Cherokee parked next to it. The tree
knocked down power lines to the house.
Myers said she often has children at the home and she
generally lets them go outside to play after the rain and
lightning go away.
', She was thankful the children were inside and no one
decided to climb in the two vehicles just about the time
the tree broke in half and the top fell.
"The last rain we had, there were six babies running
,around out there after it stopped," she said.
SMyers said she shut off the master electrical switch to
,the house as soon as she saw the power lines were down
in the front yard. She said her husband trained her to do
,that.

County commission approves nuclear plant training center


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Progress Energy's plan to build twin nuclear power reactors in southwest Levy
County received a boost from the Levy County Commission Tuesday.
The board voted 5-0 to approve a comprehensive plan amendment clearing the way
for the company to build an 80,000-square-foot training center and a 4,000-square-foot
visitor center on 19.88 acres of land adjoining U.S. 19 near the proposed generation site.
With approval of the plan amendment, the property's zoning changes from forestry-
rural residential to public use. The amendment goes to the Florida Department of
Community Affairs in Tallahassee for review.
A company slide presentation said the Training and Visitor Center will serve for the
life of the plant and will be used to train nuclear power plant operators and other support
employees. It will also be used for emergency planning and law enforcement training.
Progress Energy operates a smaller training center in Citrus County offVenable
Street. The training center there has a full mock up of a nuclear power plant control
room. Plant operators are trained how to operate the plant and how to respond to any
emergency that might arise.
The company will begin training at the Levy County center during the construction
and testing phases of the proposed plant.
Commissioners approved a small scale comprehensive plan amendment for the
center, a departure from normal. Small scale plan amendments are generally 10 acres
and smaller. The county was allowed to use the same designation for a 20-acre site
because the property lies in a Rural Area of.Critical Economic Concern.
The board will be required to certify to the Office of Tourism, Trade and Economic

December, after a similar complaint by resident Renate Cannon, it was agreed that audio
minutes would be posted online shortly after meetings. However, Collins said there are :
no audio minutes available for the June 17 regular board meeting, She said the Written
minutes for that meeting were in Tuesday's agenda. She said there are audio minutes
available online for the July 8 regular meeting, but not for the regular July 22 meeting,
the budget meeting held the same day or the meeting on Aug. 5.
"The custodian of the records told a local reporter that there is no time limit for
producing minutes," Collins said. "Perhaps there is no time limit but there does exist
an obligation to the people of Levy County to keep them informed of the business of
government." Commissioners did not comment nor did Clerk of Circuit Court Danny
Shipp, whose staff is responsible for the minutes.

Incumbent, challenger face off in race for Clerk of Court


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Danny Shipp is proud of the accomplishments his
office has achieved over the past eight years, and he
looks forward to similar challenges in the future. It will
be a future, he said, marked by increasing demands, and
dwindling revenues.
"That is the biggest challenge that the clerk will have
- trying to balance descending revenues with the increase
need of service," he said. "There will be some decisions
that the Board of County Commissioners will have to
make."
Shipp, born and raised in Levy County, faces off
against fellow Democrat Bruce Greenlee in this year's
race for the clerk's office. In making his case for another
term as clerk, Shipp rattled off a series of significant
milestones his office has achieved since he first took office
in 2001.


Shipp


"In the past eight years we have promoted changes to provide a better service to the
public," he said. "One of those things would be the Archive and History Center. We
have also implemented credit card usage for a source of payment for clerk services."
Technology, he added, has been a big part of his office's progression over the years.
"We have worked hard to enhance the website 'levyclerk.com' in order allow people
to view and purchase official records from the Internet," he said. "People are also able to
pay traffic citations online."
Building security has also been enhanced, he said.
"We have built a 'Sally Port' at the courthouse (to receive the actual vehicle that
carries prisoners to court) along with holding cells to house the inmates while they are
awaiting trial," he said. "I obtained the grant money to do that."
He also spoke of a new recording system with no delay.
"When you come in to record you can record and receive your.document back while
you wait," he said. "We also have a disaster recovery plan where we protect and secure
all county records and can recover them in. case of a disaster."
Shipp said his personal qualifications have also advanced over the years. He is a
certified clerk of court through the state of Florida Institute of Government, and the
Florida Association of Court Clerks.
"I maintain that through continuous education each year," he said.
SThat said, Shipp added that the real job satisfaction of the job of clerk of court comes
with serving the people of Levy County.
"It has been an honor and a privilege to serve them," he,said. "My staff and I have.
net all governing state statutes along with the many changes and challenges through
.he past eight years. We will continue to preserve our past, focus on our present, and
enhance a solid foundation for our future."
Shipp and wife Donna Wilkerson Shipp have been married for 33 years. They have
wo daughters, ages 30 and 28.

Forty-year-old Bruce Greenlee has lived in
Levy County all his life, having been raised in
Bronson and currently residing in Raleigh.
More than half of that time 22 years to
be exact he has served as an employee of
the county, working for the road department
S- initially as a laborer and currently as
administrative superintendent.


Service, he says, is what it is all about.
"The desire I have to serve the people of this Gre
county is what defines me as a person and defines
me as an employee of this county," he said. "I
understand who I work for. If you have a desire and you care, you are going to do
whatever it takes to serve the people."
Greenlee faces off against incumbent Danny Shipp in the race for Levy County Clerk
of Court. He said he seeks the job because of a sense he has that relationships in local
government have become strained.
"The focus is not on serving the public," he said. "It is on self gratification. On egos.
It has nothing to do with service of the people."
Levy County would be much better suited, he said, with a more cohesive
government.
"The cohesiveness is absolutely gone," he said.
Greerilee sees himself as part of the solution to the problem.
"During the time I have served as a superintendent, I have gained a tremendous
amount of respect from upper management," he said. "I have been able to do that
because I had a willingness to say 'no' and do things the right way."
Greenlee said he has taken the personal steps necessary to prepare him for greater
responsibility.
"I have helped the county receive in excess of $15 million in the last four years for
road improvements," he said. "I was successful in doing this because I care, and because
I took the time to go to Lake City and talk with the decision makers from the Florida
Department of Transportation. I found out what a funded grant should look like, and I
established a relationship with them. That helped me to get several of these proposals
funded."
A big part of it all has been humility, he added.
"I feel like my success as a manager has been because of the humility that I have,
and the desire I have to go to work every day and do what is right," he said. "The people
who are under me follow that lead. People respect me because I respect them. They have
a tendency to follow the lead because they understand how important it is to me to serve
the 40,000 people in this county."
Greenlee currently resides in Raleigh with wife Kanesha. Thdy have a 19-year-old
son, a 17-year-old daughter, and a 12-year-old Keith.

Raid, from Page 1
electric bill payments for Wilcox in exchange for using her
property to deal drugs.
Wilcox herself had dealt drugs from her home. Anderson
said they have video and audio tapes of Wilcox selling
drugs in the home. They found wafers of crack cocaine in
the kitchen area. She had 4.7 grams of crack in the home
and 1 gram of powder.
"We actually made hand-to-hand transactions with her,
and filmed it," he said.
The Levy County, Drug Task Force served a search
warrant on Wilcox as she sat handcuffed on a couch in her
living room. The warrant, which was read to her by SWAT
team member Burt Miller, gave officers the right to search
her home for drugs.
Outside the home they found crack cocaine lying in
the grass and in bushes where it had been thrown by the
suspects as the raid took place.
Also arrested in the drug raid were:
Eddie Daniel Graham, 25, 4023 S.W. 16th Lane,
Williston, on two counts of possession of crack cocaine
with intent to distribute, three counts of possession of
crack cocaine, and three counts of sale of crack cocaine.
His total bond was set at $220,000. Investigators said they
handcuffed Graham on the floor. When they lifted him off
the floor they found a red bottle beneath him containing
several pieces of crack cocaine. Some of the charges date
back to previous drug buys undercover officers had made
from Graham. He was found with'three-tenths of a gram of
crack in his possession and $220 cash.
Carlos Demetrius McNeal, 25, 21220 N.E; 41st
St., Williston, on charges of possession of cocaine with
intent to distribute, possession of drug paraphernalia and
trafficking in cocaine. McNeal had been sitting in a gray
passenger car when the raid began. He exited the vehicle
and ran northwest before sheriff's office investigator Mark
Garcia caught and detained him. Garcia had seen McNeal
throw away a white object as he ran. The officer recovered
the object, which was two clear plastic baggies containing
31 grams of powder cocaine and crack cocaine. Total bond
was $405,000. He was found with 4 grams of crack, 24
grams of powder and $840 cash in his possession.
Ronnie L. Walker, 21,21590 N.E. 40t St., Williston,
on charges of possession of cocaine and sale of cocaine.
Total bond $43,000.
Officers had mapped out a strategy for entering the
home with the SWAT team in the lead. They were not sure
what to expect or how many people would be in the home
or if there were weapons. They found no weapons inside
the'hbmiiee.' . ... ..
'Thi inx estigatl6n had gone&8h fbi W't6 !rldtercce
agents had been able to buy cocaine at the home on many
occasions, according to Anderson, which is why they
charged Wilcox with maintaining a drug dwelling. They
said the home was a hot spot for drug sales during the crab
festival earlier this year.
Levy County Drug Task Force officers also made
numerous drug arrests in the Williston area leading to the
drug raid. Those arrested were:
N Anthony Brett Williams, 25, 13331 N.E. 5th St.,
Williston, two counts of possession and sale of.cocaine;

to distribute and one count of resisting arrest without

cocaine, two counts each of possession of less than 20
grams of marijuana and maintaining a drug dwelling. Total
bond was $16,000.

'Tis the season


for traffic safety

It seems hard to believe
that another summer has
come and gone and it's time
to start getting the kids ready
Sto go back to school. Levy
SCounty begin that timeless
annual ritual Monday, the
first day of school. It is a
time when parents breathe
a sigh of relief and students
Sand teachers anticipate
new beginnings and new
challenges. SHERIFF'S
Unfortunately, the C
beginning of school is
also a time when children SHERIFF JOHNNY SMITH
are at increased risk of
transportation-related injuries from pedestrian,
Bicycle, school bus and motor vehicle crashes. This
happens because there are more children on.the road
each morning and afternoon, which may cause driving
Patterns to change. So as schools open their doors, it's
. time for everyone motorists, parents, educators and
students to improve their traffic safety practices.
: The familiar yellow school bus has become one of
Sthe most powerful icons in American society..Day-in
and day-out, the nation's 418,000 yellow buses travel
more than 4.5 billion miles a year at a cost of nearly
$10 billion. They safely carry 24 million children -
nearly half of all the nation's children to and from
school.
While school buses can be proud of their safety
record, there are still aspects ofschool bus transportation
that are dangerous to children. More children are hurt
outside a bus than inside one. Getting on and off the
bus is the most dangerous part of the bus ride. This
;loading and unloading area is called the "danger
zone." The area extends 10 feet in front of the bus,
10 feet on each side of the bus and 10 feet behind the
bus. The danger zone is where children are at greatest
risk of not being seen by the bus driver. The child who
bends over to retrieve a dropped school paper, or who
walks too close to the bus while crossing the street is
at greatest risk of becoming the next statistic in this
!- danger zone.
. ParenPtsndpther adults must also do their part. For
instance, most motorists need to learn to share the road
with school buses. They must stop when the bus stops
to take on or let off passengers. If we all do our part if
motorists heed school bus Warning lights, bus drivers
drive defensively, parents help their children learn to
ride safely and children learn to avoid the bus's danger
zone we can increase the safety of the yellow bus
ride to and from school.
Safety precaution education is the best way to keep
your child safe this school year. Get involved and get
your children involved. The more you know the safer
your children,are.
Please be careful during your travels the Sheriff's
Office will be monitoring the school zones and school
bus stops for traffic violations.


Sheriff's arrests


Animal cruelty case highlights week


A 19-year-old Chiefland man was arrested Aug. 12

he hadn't fed or watered two dogs at 6291 N.W. 105t
Court.

Meeks, from Page 1


Parker, from Page 1

Parker stated that
he supported creation
of the Nature Coast
SBusiness Development
Council and the
Enterprise Zone
Development Agency
(EZDA), both of which
are geared to bringing
new businesses to the
county.
He said he works
with the Levy
Wellness Coalition
and Suwannee River Parker
Economic Council on social and economic issues.
Parker expressed that he sees a lot of the senior
citizens falling through the cracks. Too many
don't have heat for their homes in the winter or air
conditioning in the summer. He said the Levy Wellness
Coalition is attempting to deal with a whole range of
issues relating to youth and senior citizens and that
the organization is working to obtain 501(c) (3) tax
exempt status to apply for grants.
"If you're going to look at keeping the county
family-oriented, you need to look at the whole picture,
from the young to the old," Parker said. "They have
needs and those needs have to be met to serve the
residents."
Parker stated that he was the commissioner who
brought the county's anti-nudity ordinance to the
attention of the board. He said he had learned that
the old county ordinance could not be defended in
court and that the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled
communities could not implement a total ban on
topless bars, adult book stores and similar businesses.
But there were ways to discourage the spread of such
activity into the county.
He said the county commission hired an outside
attorney to advise the board. He explained that the
ordinance commissioners adopted has strict rules
that discourage adult entertainment businesses from
setting up shop in Levy County.
"The Constitution won't let us ban them, but by
us doing this, before it came into our community, it
allows us to lay down our ground rules, to make it
as strict as we could to protect our community," he
said.
Parker's primary critic among the three candidates
running against him is Dave Bibby, who criticized Parker
for having his name on the delinquent property tax list
this Near. Bibby said there is no excuse for a county
commissioner not paying his property taxes on time.
''This man, as far as I'm concerned, has lost his
credibility," ,Bibby said. "When you vote to raise
taxes and then you don't pay your taxes; to me that's
impeachable."
Responding, Parker said the county didn't raise the
property tax village rate. He said his accountant and
secretary handle payment of property taxes for him. He
said the taxes are always paid. If they are paid late, he
pays the penalty.
He said Bibby promised four years ago not to engage
in mudslinging, but he is apparently doing it again.
"You never get ahead looking at what the other
man's doing wrong," Parker said. "You can get ahead by
looking at what you are trying to do right."
Parker said he.supports Progress Energy's proposal
to build two nuclear reactors in southwest Levy County.
He said it will bring jobs to the county, but he said the
estimated $51 million in additional property tax revenue
(using today's tax rate) should not be viewed as a
windfall. He said commissioners should use the revenue.
to relieve the tax burden of the citizens and provide
services to the community.


Meeks, who earned .
a bachelor's degree in -
history from the University
of Florida, with a minor
in education, is a fourth
generation Levy County
resident. He said he loves
the county and its people.
But he said the county
needs jobs.
"Besides the power plant,
where are our young people
going to Work? They are
(currently) going to Alachua Meeks
County and Marion County. I think the commission should
work toward attracting business and industry," he said.
On the subject of Progress Energy's proposed nuclear
power plant, Meeks' campaign flier said he would try to
keep tax increases to a minimum and instead of using the
millions of dollars in property taxes from the power plant
as a windfall. He said it would lower the property taxes of
residents.
Meeks said he would recommend lowering the property
tax rate to 4 mills when the additional power plant revenue
became available. Progress Energy officials are estimating
the county commission would receive about. $51 million
annually in property taxes from the plant if the tax rate
were left at the current 7.4 mills.
Meeks said his platform has changed somewhat during-
the course of the campaign. The platform first began with a


Bibby, from Page 1


Bibby stated that too v
many Levy County residents
are forced to commute to
Ocala and Gainesville for
higher paying jobs. He said
that wouldn't be the case if
the county had a long-range
economic plan. i
Bibby, who ran in 2000
and 2004 for the county
commission, said he had
made up his mind after the
2004 campaign not to run
again, but changed his mind Bibby
when he saw what he viewed as "high taxes."
He said the county commission reduced the millage rate,
but it could have lowered it more perhaps to 6.5 mills.
Bibby and his wife Carol moved to Williston in 1994.
He retired from the U.S. Navy in 1975 after 20 years as an
,,~rgaic controller aboard carriers, moyig p, HollyW9god,
Fla. He worked for the city of Sunrise forl8 years as a
certified mechanic in utilities. He went to work for the city
of Williston in 1997, first in the utility department and later
the airport. Bibby is planning to build a new restaurant, the
Pyper Kub Cafd, at the airport.
Bibby saidhe advocates managed growth inLevy County.
He explained that he doesn't want the county to turn into a
"concrete jungle" as a result of over development, but he
thinks the county should be able to fast-track development


permits to help businesses get started faster.
He said he has been working to get his airport restaurant
started for a year. He has $80,000 invested and still hasn't
turned a shovel of dirt. He said the blame lies more with.
the state, but he thinks the permitting process for the county
should be user-friendly.
Bibby criticized county commissioners for announcing
earlier this summer that they might have to lay off 11
emergency medical service employees due to budget cuts.
Commissioners later decided to use reserve funds to avoid
the layoffs. But Bibby said the announcement of layoffs
was a"scare tactic" in an election year.
"Their budget is sick, but they're not going to raise taxes,
until after the election," Bibby said. He expressed that h,
was referring to the special property assessments that pay
for ambulance and fire fees.
Bibby also accused- commissioners of violating the
state's Sunshine Law, though he did not single out any
commissioner by name. The Sunshine Law requires
public boards like the county cpns q.ptQjcppduct thi,
business in public. He stated he has seen commissioners
sitting at the same table in restaurants, "and they're not'
talking about tennis," he said.
Bibby also wants to stop what he called. "senseless!
spending." He cited the county attorney's office as an
example. He said the county attorney's budget is now
$300,000, but the county has to hire private lawyers to,
represent it in trials. Under the old system, he said the
county paid a contract lawyer $70,000.


Blitch, from Page 1


mentality" when it comes
to taxation. '.
"Their attitude is, let's
see what we can get out of
them, rather than looking
forward at needs. and
forming an action plan to
accomplish it," he said.
"Every tax they .approve
is coming from the same
people. "That's why I
think you have to think
about people rather than
politics."
Blitch said taxes are Blitch
needed to pay for "the common welfare of people."
But he said no tax should favor a particular group.
He said the $25,000 Homestead Exemption looks good
on paper, but it exempts certain property owners from
paying property taxes. If a property owner lives in an
older model mobile home on small acreage, that person
probably won't have to pay property taxes, Blitch said.
"The exemption takes out a certain group of people,"
he said.
Regarding the proposed Progress Energy nuclear
power plant in southwest Levy County, Blitch said he
supports it. He said nuclear energy has inherent dangers,
buit in looking at who would own the plant and operate
it, he said Progress Energy hasn't done anything to
endanger Levy County.
"When managed properly with good oversight, I have
no fear, and they have done a good job for us," he said.
In an ideal world, Blitch would love to see solar energy


and wind energy. used, in Levy County to produce the
electricity, but he said it would take $30,000 to convert
his home into a solar home with no power bill. He said.
most people don't have that kind of money to invest iii
solar energy.
SRegarding county employees, Blitch said he believes
the county should implement a grievance process thdt
allows employees to report waste in county government
without fear of retaliation or job loss. He said he doesn't
believe in unions. He said unions are not needed if there
is good leadership.
"Could someone take advantage of it (the grievance::
process); the answer is yes, but if you. have good
leadership that will take care of it put people first,"
Blitch said.
Blitch said he would also encourage a policy that
requires the county commission to give'its business to
local firms, even when it costs a little more. He said
local businesses pay property taxes and their expenses,
are higher. He said it costs more to do business locally.
Gasoline costs are also higher.
"If it costs a little now to keep the money in the
county, I would rather do that than send the money out
of the county," Blitch said.
Blitch said the policy would be in line with his overall
platform of keeping the people first. He said that was
the main reason he ran. Government was never made
to provide for every need, but if politicians keep people
first, he said, it operates in their best interests.
"The biggest reason I ran is I believe in people, not
politics," Blitch said. "I will put people at the forefront
of every decision I make. I will work for the people."


Landfill director refutes candidate's claims


Levy County Landfill Director Benny Jerrels produced
receipts Tuesday showing that the landfill has sold scrap
metal to Ocala Recycling LLC, contrary to claims made by
a political candidate in a Journal story last week.
Jerrels showed the receipts to a Journal reporter to refute
comments by District 3 county commission candidate
Al Macri who said people pay the county to take their
scrap metal, but he could find no records indicating that


the county had ever been paid by Ocala Recyling for the
metal.
The landfill director produced checks the county had
received from Ocala Recycling for $1,705.20; $2,904.60;
$1,380.80 and $1,297.60. Jerrels said he produced the
records to set the record straight.
Macri is running against District 3 County Commissioner
Sammy Yearty.

focus on preparing for the future and planning for growth.
As South Florida fills up, he said people will move to Levy
County. He said it's inexpensive to live here. Taxes are,
low.
"I've been out speaking to citizens. They've heard-
about home invasions. They've heard about the ambulance
taking 40 minutes to reach someone," he said.
Meeks said the county needs to look to the state and
federal government for grant funds, and it also needs to
keep its budget in check. He said the county should also
protect agriculture and farmers.
"We want to make sure we don't raise taxes so high it
forces them off their land," he said.
Meeks said he advocates managed growth and he
supports protecting the environment, but not to the extent.
that it stymies economic growth. He said eco-tourism could
be an economic boon to the county.
"Tourists come here with pockets full of money and
hopefully they will leave with empty pockets," he said.
Meeks said he likes to sit down and talk common
sense to people. He said it would be dishonest to promise,
them lower taxes when he doesn't know whether that is,
realistic.
"But they do want accountability and they want to know,
why, when I go to the landfill, there two guys working:
and two guys standing around," Meeks said. "Why hasn't
my road been fixed in two-and-a-half years and now in
an election year it gets fixed. People are worried about all
these people moving to the county and how it will affect,
their lives."

An open letter to Congressman Allen I


STnless immediate and comprehensive action
J is taken by our government against the
ongoing influx of illegals, the consequences will
unquestionably result in degradation of our scoeity
to a most devastating extent. I for one am very,
very concerned not only for myself, but more for
my grown daughters, my grandson and ultimately,
my beloved country, the U.S.A.
Judicial Watch has calculated the current cost
to the U.S. of illegals to be on the order of $53
billion annually.
These illegals want all the social welfare
benefits of legal citizens. Most have no intention
of returning home. They are bringing their wives,
their girlfriends and their children here in order to
establish permanent residences. They demand free
healthcare, free education, and all the privileges of
citizenship.
No person from any other country can possibly
be eligible for citizenship if he does not obey the
rule of law. Anyone who enters America illegally
has violated ipso facto, the rule of law. All such
persons must be either deported or imprisoned.
Any individual, group, company or government
entity that aids or abets illegals undermines


the rule of law and diminishes our national
sovereignty.
Illegal aliens have no legal or moral grounds
whatsoever on which to dictate what our
immigration laws should be. These laws have been
in effect for many decades and have been the basis
on which millions of aliens have been legally
admitted to this country.
It is emergently imperative that the U.S.
Government erect and maintain a complete border
fence of such size and construction as to make any
penetration thereof exceedingly difficult. The cost
to America is far greater should we fail to do so.
I implore you to lend your full support to
our greatly undermanned U.S. Border Patrol.
Two courageous officers, Ignaceo Ramos and
Jose Compean, have been given lengthy prison
sentences as a result of their performance along
the border. Their trial and sentencing has been a
Shameful miscarriage of justice. By all means,
cosponsor HR563 granting these loyal Americans
a full Congress-signed pardon.

Miscellaneous observations


By Rick Burnham
SEditor

Two weeks ago, columnist Thomas Sowell
released a column entitled "Random
Thoughts," a collection of individual
illuminations molded into a full-length article
that.we ran here in the Journal.
As a result, even though the following is essentially
a collection of my own random thoughts, I should not
and will not call them "Random Thoughts." Instead, here
are a few "Miscellaneous observations," written in the .,
minutes immediately following my consumption of a Red
Bull.
When I was growing up in Jasper, everyone used to
wave when you drove past them. Even if you didn't know
who it was, chances are they would wave as they went
by something my ex wife (from Miami) could not understand when we went back to
Hamilton County. Whatever happened to that custom?
Red Bull tastes like crap.
An area newspaper ran a story the other day that referred to the economy as a cause
for a recent crime wave. Actually, it is a general sense of false entitlement coupled with
a complete disregard for the law of the land on the part of those who are committing the
crimes. When you boil it down, the economy really has nothing to do with it. How can
big media be so wrong abdut so many things on a consistent basis? Hint: it has to do
with an agenda.
I miss the Crocodile Hunter.
At some point in time, the last remaining person of our "greatest generation," those
who lived through the great depression and fought World War II, is going to pass away.


What a sad day that will be. If you know someone from that era vet or not take a
moment to talk with them. They are a proud group, and we would have been in a world
of hurt had they not been around to make the great sacrifices they did.
It is very likely that the Homestead Restaurant, on Hwy. 19 in Fanning Springs, has
the best buffet on the planet.
They ought to name the stretch of Hwy. 27A between Bronson and Williston the
"Steve Jarboe Highway." No one and I do mean no'one is more passionate about
recognizing the accomplishments of students from Bronson and Williston schools than
Steve.
It has now been more than a month since Shania Twain broke up with her husband
and she has yet to return any of my emails.
The best indication of what a politician will do when he or she gets elected is what
they have done in the past, not what they say during the campaign. That's why this
presidential election is the most important ever.
I have never been a fan of Kid Rock, but having heard "All Summer Long" on the
radio a couple of hours ago, that might change. Can't get that song out of my head.
Our law enforcement officers do not get enough credit. With all the technology and
weaponry available to criminals, and with the trend in the judiciary to protect criminals
at the expense of the victim, it must take a unique and dedicated person to be willing to
put their life on the line, day in and day out.
As I prepare to wrap this column up I open an email from a reader with a link.to
a story about tickets to the Democratic National Convention. On the ticket stub is a
picture of Barack Obama, and in the background of the picture is the American flag. The
flag is upside down, which is a traditional symbol of duress. Pathetic.
There are millions of fine people in both the Democratic and Republican parties, but
the far far left of this country consists of some of the most worthless human beings ever
to walk on two legs. It is a crying shame that they have been allowed to take over the
Democratic Party.
It will be a travesty if they are allowed to take over the country.


Georgian situation brings back memories ofReagan


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

I was never a big fan of President Ronald Reagan,
though I shook his hand once when he first ran.
for the White House and I did vote for him in
his first term. I admit he was cagey about how
to use the military and its resources. With Reagan, it
wasn't always a case of sending in the heavy armor and
the bombers to achieve victory. He didn't swat flies with
sledge hammers. Intelligence and cunning were important
tools when he was commander in chief.
President George W. Bush would have done well to
study Reagan's history when he considered his military.
options over the past eight years. If he had tried to
be more like Reagan, the strategy in Iraq might have
involved more cyv,rttnction than o% ert action, or at least
something short of a full blown war.
'The recent invasion of the country of Georgia by
Russian forces is a good example of how Bush likes to
operate.
The president sent a convoy of heavy military
equipment and troops to Georgia on a "supply mission."
It was in reality a limited show of force. Much of our
military might is committed to Iraq, Afghanistan and
Korea. Bush sent what he could spare, which wasn't
much. I'm not sure he did much good if his intent was to
send a subtle message to the Russians.
I suspect Reagan would have handled the Georgian
situation a bit differently. I think Reagan had better staff
and his military IQ was a tad higher than Bush's. Reagan
was a fundamentally sound commander in chief and
everyone knew it, including leaders in the Soviet Union.
Reagan listened to his advisors, and I think he had good
ones. He wasn't afraid to act. He wasn't all talk.
Reagan's response to the Soviet Union's invasion
of Afghanistan in the 1980s was a study in how to use
covert military strategies effectively. His CIA director,
William Casey, recommended a covert strategy to destroy
the Soviet army in Afghanistan using the Mujaheddin


rebels. I won't go into all the gory details, but suffice
to say the CIA was able to channel high tech military
equipment to the Muslim fighters and teach them how to
use the equipment. The Mujaheddin inflicted such heavy
losses on the Soviets that they were forced to withdraw
from Afghanistan after losing tens of thousands of men
in battle. It was the Soviet Union's Vietnam. The Soviet
empire broke up not long after its military exit from
Afghanistan.
Apparently Vladimir Putin, the new Russian dictator,
has forgotten about what happened in Afghanistan, or
perhaps he doesn't think Russian troops will ever be
victimized by an American-backed guerrilla force in
Georgia. He may be right. Perhaps he believes the U.S.
Congress has sufficiently tied the hands of the. CIA and
it can no longer legally launch covert operations like the
'one in 1980s Afghanistan.
I know that the United States military trained the
Georgian military after the fall of the Soviet Union, and
to his credit, President Bush issued an executive order
earlier this year stripping an Intelligence Oversight Board
of much of its power to probe the covert activities of
American intelligence agencies. I'm hoping that means
the CIA or some branch of our military can still secretly
help the Georgian military fight a covert war against the
Russians. Stay tuned.
It wouldn't hurt my feelings if the United States were
able to supply a handful of Special Forces "advisors"
and a few hundred stinger missiles to the Georgians to
start things off, and maybe ship them a few thousand
sniper rifles with silencers. Make sure the sniper rifles
are loaded with body armor-piercing bullets. Add night
vision and satellite technology to the package. And teach
the Georgians how to become a shadow army, striking at
the bulky conventional forces of the Russians at night, or
whenever they felt it was to their advantage.
Truthfully, I think the days of big conventional forces
dominating the battlefield are about gone anyway. It's
clear from the experience of U.S. Troops in Vietnam and
Iraq, and the Russians in 1980s-Afghanistan, that covert


guerrilla fighters, motivated by nationalism or patriotism,
or whatever you want to call it, can be a highly effective
military f6rce against a conventional army. The covert
fighters look and dress just like the civilians. They don't
wear uniforms. It's difficult for soldiers in uniform to
identify the enemy.
That's what the Russians need to understand. The
current Georgian situation could easily turn into an
expensive quagmire for them if they were to faced a
determined and well-equipped guerilla force like the one
in 1980s Afghanistan: The Georgians lack numbers of
the ground, but the Russians would be no match in the
long run for a well equipped guerilla force comprised of
Georgians.
Course, this is all speculation, If the'U.S. were
considering such amove -and I don't knpw that it is :,
-- the plan \vould never be discussed public. And I
must add a qualifier. I'm not such a gung ho arm chair
warrior that I would condone some of the illegal covert
intelligence activities that have been reported and
investigated in the past, including torture, mind control
and the like. But I think it's clear from the Iraq experience
that there's more than one way to approach situations
like the one in Georgia. It doesn't always have to be
shock and awe. The use of intelligence and cunning is
sometimes the smarter approach. It's,cheaper, too.
It is worrisome.to watch the aggression of Russia as
of late. The Russians have launched a brutal war against
Chechnya, a next-door neighbor of the Georgians, and
now it appears the Georgians 'are in the frying pan. I think
both were once part of the Communist Soviet Union. I'm;
not one of those."Cold War" hangers-on that like to jaw
about the past in hopes of beefing up military spending.
But history is difficult to ignore, and the actions ofPutin
are suspicious. My hope is that he has enough sense to
leave Georgia in peace and allow the nation to function
independently.
If hot, it's been said by wiser people than me that if wv
don't learn from the mistakes of the past, we are bound tc
repeat them.


Letter to the Editor


No commercial zoning in place for Yankee


A growing number of residents are again confused by
paid commentary written by a representative of Izaak
Walton Investors/ Sherwood Partners, published recently
in The Newscaster. Many comments are not accurate
and it is my opinion that it is an attempt to cast doubt
and blame to distract from that which should demand
accuracy.
I can understand that some might be dismayed that an
attorney would offer his time, much of it without charge,
to assist members of the community in their battle
against frivolous lawsuits brought by the Izaak Walton
development. I'm sure they were hoping for a much
different result. Some of the original 29 people sued
by Sherwood and his associated companies are elderly,
ill and many exist on fixed incomes. All are respected
and upstanding citizens, belonging to volunteer
organizations and community groups, and have
dedicated a good bit of their lives to helping others. Mr.
Haines saw a people in desperate need and ill equipped
to protect themselves from being bullied by a developer
bent on getting his way and he stepped up to offer his
assistance. It would follow then that the developer
would wish to crush the only help some of these people
have by implying a conspiracy theory.
Since the Haines' family are property owners in ,
Yankeetown they have the same rights to voice an
opinion on the future of their property as any other
land owner including Sherwood Partners and Izaak
Walton Investors. I have been told that Tim and his


wife Patti attended Planning and Zoning meetings and
gave their input to be considered. I was also informed
that developers' representatives attended these same
meetings and when asked for their input they refused to
give it. I understand that the Haines' intend to build a
single-family residence, on an island they own, which
is zoned residential. After asking town representatives
about the allegations of favoritism towards the Haines'
I was informed that the new Comp Plan amendment
has added additional requirements to any application
for building on the islands, not made it easier to build,
as stated in the paid commentary by a local developer.
The fact of the matter is this, no Commercial Building
is allowed on the islands of Yankeetown, in the current
Comprehensive Plan or the in latest amendment,
and none is ongoing. According to those I spoke
to, Chambers Island, which is zoned for residential
building, currently has a permitted walkway project
underway and nothing more.
The deed restrictions of Waterway Estates do not
allow commercial activities in the subdivision. These
restrictions were in place years before Izaak Walton
Investors proposed their development. The Newscaster
commentary stated that the subdivision is somehow
preventing Izaak Walton's commercial building and
this is false. They will be held to the same standard as
any other landowner, including myself. Izaak Walton
Investors proposes to erect 48 commercial transient
condo units, not two "residences" as stated in the


town islands

commentary, and a commercial high and dry boat
storage facility for 176 boats, adjacent to the residential
neighborhoods. They then plan to use the land and
waterways in the subdivision for their commercial
venture. Current subdivision residents purchased
property in Waterway Estates knowing a project of this
type could not take place. Is it any wonder that residents
now oppose this non-permitted use of their subdivision
and have hired an attorney to represent them?
I know of no Yankeetown officials or residents who
have conspired to prevent anyone from using their
property for the purpose it was zoned or deeded. If
people feel they can circumvent the rules we all must
live by and get their way by scare tactics and lawsuits
then thankfully we have people like Tim Haines ready
to step up and help. I will be forever grateful to him for
his care, concern and community spirit. Tim Haines and'
his family are an asset to our town and we should be
thankful that they've chosen to live among us.
If you want to know the truth about what is or is not
allowed on the Yankeetown islands or have questions
about what recent changes have been made to the
Comprehensive Plan, then do what I did and go to the
source for the real story. Contact Town Hall or town
officials. Any question you have will be answered in an
intelligent and courteous manner.

Three reasons to watch




By Steve Jarboe
Sports Editor

The start of the high school
football season is just around
the corer here in Levy County
and everyone should be excited
this .year.
There are three main reasons.
you should begin now to make
plans to come out and see Levy Cointy high school
football this season: the Bronson Eagles, the Chiefland
Indians, and the Williston Red Devils.
SAll three teams in my opinion will have a great
season in their respective leagues which, by the way,
happens to all be different.
'This season the Bronson Eagles, under new Head.
,Coach Al Cooksey, will not disappoint their fans.
This team is loaded with veterans and they have been
working their tails off in practice. If you happen to be
,in downtown Bronson when the Eagles are practicing,
those loud pops are not sledge hammers pounding the
pavement, but the Eagles pads popping as never before
over at the football field. It is my opinion this Eagles
team will win at least seven or more games this season
in the Florida Independent League, if everyone stays
healthy. Ispean Independent bowl game for the Eagles
at season's end.
Reason No. 2 is the Class 2B Chiefland Indians.
Although they lost some very good players to
graduation, second year Head Coach Ajay Ulmer has
started a football program that his Indians have bought
into. The Indians are moving in a positive direction. If
they can stay healthy the Indians will win more' than
half of their games this season and compete for the
district title at the end of the season.
Reason three is.the WillistonrRed Devils. Fifth year
Head Coach Jamie Baker is ready to get the season
started. Although the team was plagued with injuries
last season they still managed to again take the rumner-
up spot in the 3A district.
It is my opinion this Red Devil team has a good
chance to win-the district outright this year. They have
speedtbt&uiuPfi6'ffdfii e nd de ense. In addition, a lot
of players were thrown into the fire last year, due to a
rash of injuries, and were able to gain game experience.
The Red Devils chose to play in class 3A and are in
a tough district, with the much larger North Marion,
Santa Fe, Dunnellon, and a much improved West Port
team.
If one of the later two teams, Chiefland or Williston,
can gain ,that raw toughness to go along with their
athletic talent, a run for a state championship is not out
of reach for either team. Let's play some football.
Of course, that is just my own opinion:


Pro Division winners Travis Tummond Reserve
Champion, and Allie Martinez Grand Champion.

A young girl boards a Levy County school bus as classes began Monday.

ahead.


Drivers share road with 81


buses;


District officials stress caution

Story and photo by Kellie Parkin
Correspondent
As school resumes this week from the summer break, so do the 81 Levy County
bus routes. Steve Tyson, Director of Levy County School Board Transportation urges
drivers to share the roads, stop when a school bus is loading or unloading, and be
patient.
"We have a very high rate of people running through stop arms," said Tyson. "We
just ask people to please be patient and careful." He related a story of a driver who
decided to pass on the right of a stopped school bus and barely missed hitting the open
doors. Fortunately, the last student had just boarded and was out of the road, he said.
"Our only recourse is to train and retain our drivers," Tyson said.. "And teach them
riot to trust the stop arms." Instead;,bus drivers use hand signals and eye contact to let
students know when it is safe to cross the road, he said.
In areas where there is an exceptionally high rate ofviolations, a sheriff's deputy or
local police officer is sent to monitor and patrol the location.
"That usually clears it up for awhile in that particular area," Tyson said. "But we
mainly have to rely on drivers to follow the rules and watch for the buses to help keep
our kids safe."
Failure to stop for a school bus is a four point infraction on a driver's license and
results in a fine of $160.50, according to the Levy County Clerk of Court website.
Florida Statute 318 states that passing a stopped school bus requires a mandatory court
appearance at which a judge will assess the fine. The fine for speeding in a school zone
can cost a driver $110.50 to $360.50, or mandatory court if over 30 mph above the
posted limit. Second and subsequent violations result in double fine amounts.
