FBI agent testifies -.


inYearty, Parker case ...


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

FBI Agent Sean Quinn testified
Tuesday in federal court that Levy
County Commissioners Sammy Yearty
and Tony Parker accepted $10,000 cash
from him at a Gainesville motel room
two years ago when they thought he
was a'New Jersey developer looking
for powerful political friends in the
county.
Quinn posed as the fast-talking
Sean Michaels, an employee of
Gideon Development, Inc., a fictional
Newark, New Jersey company Quinn
said the FBI invented as part of its
undercover investigation into political
corruption in Dixie County and later
Levy County.
Quinn, who is from Newark and
speaks with a regional accent from
that area, said he never lived in Levy
County during the investigation, but
commuted from Newark to Florida
by airplane and stayed in touch with
Yearty by telephone.
He testified the fictional company
gave Yearty and Parker an all expense
paid trip to New York City in 2007
as part of an effort to gain their trust
and prove that they were willing to
take bribes and other inducements in,
exchange for political influence.
Yearty and Parker are being tried
on charges of bribery and conspiracy
to take bribes. They were indicted in
October of 2008. Announcement of
the indictments was delayed until the


day after both had been re-elected to
another term. They were suspended by
the governor's office.
Quinn's testimony was part of the
government's case. The defense has
yet to cross-examine the prosecution's
witnesses or offer its own witnesses
to refute the government's case. The
defense case should -start sometime
today.
Despite Quinn's testimony that
Yearty and Parker took bribes, his
testimony also raised questions about
whether Yearty and Parker were
victims of an aggressive FBI informant
who made friends with them over an.
extended period and laid a trap for the
two unsuspecting commissioners, as
defense lawyers contend. Entrapment
is part of the defense.
Quinn's testimony is the heart of
the federal government's bribery case
against Yearty and Parker, but Quinn's
testimony also suggested Yearty may
have never asked for bribe money.
Quinn testified he carried $8,000 to
$10,000 cash with him for months
anticipating Yearty would ask for a
bribe.
"I fully expected to be asked for a
bribe at this point," Quinn said.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Greg
McMahon stopped short of asking
Quinn whether Yearty had in fact ever
solicited a bribe.
Quinn testified that he invited Yearty
and Parker to take an all-expense paid

Study results could indicate where spilled gas flowed in '88


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

An environmental company may have accidentally
shed some light on a 21-year-old Chiefland mystery
surrounding a large gasoline spill.
Karst Environmental Services conducted a dye'
trace study earlier this year on a sinkhole near N.E.
4thAve and U.S. 27Ato determine the direction water
flows underground after entering the sinkhole.
Pete Butt, operations manager for the company
said the dye turned up in the spring run of Manatee
Springs State Park about a week later. That fact was
significant for more than one reason.
The fact that the dye turned up in the spring
run of Manatee Springs was an indication that
the sinkhole is directly linked to the spring by the
Floridan Aquifer.
But the sinkhole also had a unique history.
On June 9, 1988 a gasoline tanker truck


overturned on U.S. 27A close to First Baptist
Church in Chiefland. An estimated 6,800 gallons of
gasoline flowed from valves and leaks in the truck
into a highway storm drain that emptied directly
into the same sinkhole.
The spilled gasoline was never found. Studies of
the area turned up only traces of the gasoline within
a 50-foot radius. The city's two wells at the time
never became contaminated with gasoline.
Butt explained the dye trace study to the Fanning
and Manatee Springs Working Group, a forum of
scientists and citizens that convenes once a quarter
at Fanning Springs City Hall to examine issues
related to the two springs.
He was asked if he thought the dye trace study
revealed what happened to the spilled gasoline in
1988. Did the gasoline take the same underground
route as the dye?
"It (the gas) may have come out at the springs,
depending on water conditions," Butt said.


The dye trace showed that water entering the
sinkhole flows almost due west and a little north
to reach the spring. Butt said the pink dye was
� harmless.
The two Chiefland wells that were tested at the
time 'for gasoline contamination stood' southwest
and southeast of the sinkhole.
The gasoline tanker overturned in a traffic crash
on U.S. 27A. .The sinkhole serves as a Florida
Department of Transportation drainage basin for
storm water runoff from the highway. Gasoline
from the spill drained directly into the sinkhole and
the aquifer.
When city officials discovered the gasoline spill
21 years ago, the eastern side of Chiefland was
evacuated in case gasoline fumes had entered the
city's water or sewer pipes. The fear was that a
spark could'have triggered an explosion.
There was no explosion. No gas or gas fumes
were ever detected in city pipes or wells.

The Levy County Sheriff's Office
held an hour-long standoff Sunday
afternoon after a Williston Vietnam
veteran called 9-1-1 claiming
six people entered his home and
attempted to kidnap him and his
dog.
The man said the kidnappers
threw him into a closet, where he
armed himself with a Glock 9mm
pistol. He said he then came out of
the closet and shot a female police
officer and one of the kidnappers.
Sheriffs deputies arrived on
scene at 2451 S.E. SR121, Williston,
to hear gunshots in the home. A
perimeter was set up around the
residence and SR 121 was shut
down for about 45 .minutes to ensure
passing drivers' safety.
According to the sheriffs office
press release, Sgt. Danny Turner
spoke to the caller on the phone
during *ie standoff, and the caller

said he had shot several people
who were still inside and that some
had already escaped, before law
enforcement arrived.
During the standoff, a white
male came out of the home and ran
toward law enforcement officers. He
was holding a gun, but dropped it
and told the officers that there were
injured people still inside the home.
Levy County Sheriff's Office
Capt. Evan Sullivan said that the
man who came out of the house
was the caller. He said the tactical

over 6,000 rounds of ammunition
and numerous firearms inside.
Sullivan said they are not

Rotarians tackle nitrate problems in springs, river


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Scientists believe nitrates are becoming a major
problem in the Suwannee River and the springs that
feed the river.
Nitrates are believed to be the cause of green algae
that coats the white sandy bottom of Fanning Springs
and Manatee Springs. The nitrates act as a fertilizer
for the algae. Native water grasses that once thrived
in the springs have disappeared under a carpet of
algae in recent years.
Three Rotary Clubs in the tri-county area are
trying to do something about nitrate pollution by
encouraging residents to limit the amount of fertilizer
they use on their lawns. Rotarians also encourage
regular maintenance of their septic tanks.
They call their project the Tri County Springs
promise.
Lawn fertilizer and septic tanks are considered a
major source of nitrate pollution in the springs and
. the river. The Rotary Promise project is aimed at
educating people about these two pollution sources
and encouraging homeowners to reduce the nitrates
coming from their own back yards.
Rotarians Stoney Smith and Charlie Smith were
guest speakers at the Fanning Springs and Manatee
Springs Working Group Nov. 18. The working group
is a forum that convenes once every three months at
Fanning Springs City Hall to exchange information
about the two springs. Guest speakers talk about
ways to preserve and protect the springs.
The Rotarian project involves selling Promise
signs to participating homeowners for $50. They are


focusing on homeowners living within the springshed
of the two springs, the land area that contributes rain
water to the springs.
Purchasing a sign from Rotarians seals the
homeowner's promise to use less fertilizer, no
fertilizer or slow-release fertilizer on their lawn. It
encourages them to consider having their septic tank
inspected and pumped out every five years.
Money raised from the project will be used for
water projects in this area and in poor developing
countries..
The third part of the promise recommends the
homeownerfill out aFloridaYards andNeighborhoods
Landscape self-evaluation checklist, and asks them to
consider having their landscape certified by a Nature
Coast Master Gardner with a free on-site evaluation
of their property.
The Rotarians are talking about publishing a
color educational brochure that lists the goals of the
Promise project and educates residents about how
they can protect the springs. They are also working
on a children's coloring book that would teach young
children about the need to protect the springs.
"If the kids learn about the water and springs at an
early age it sticks," Charlie Smith said. "If they take
it home to their parents, they look too."
Stoney Smith noted that a bill is pending in -the
Florida Legislature (Senate Bill 274) thatwould getthe
state involved in nitrate cleanup rather than allowing
residents to do it voluntarily. He believes it would
be better to clean up the springs through a volunteer
effort rather than having state involvement.
Protecting the springs also protects the drinking
water of the area. The springs are openings in the

Rotarian Charlie Smith explains the Tri
County Springs Promise to the Fanning
Springs and Manatee Springs Working
Group Nov.18.

Floridan Aquifer, the subsurface limestone formation
that provides most of the tri-county area with its
drinking water. Water flowing through large vents in
the limestone aquifer creates the springs: The springs
feed the Suwannee River and its tributaries.


Springs are important,


but some no

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Ten springs in Florida no longer flow.
"They are stagnant cesspools," said
Carol Lippincott.
Lippincott, coordinator of the Fanning
and Manatee Springs Working Group,
opened last week's meeting with that
announcement.
Springs stop flowing when the
groundwater level in the aquifer drops
too low for water to flow through the
spring opening.
"That's why there's an effort to protect
the springs," Lippincott said.
Her comments came at the start of the
springs working group meeting. She was
introducing first time visitors to facts the
group has learned in the past year. The
group meets once every three months at
Fanning Springs City Hall.
Lippincott said Fanning Springs
attracts 315,000 visitors annually and
generates an economic impact of $12 V2
million. The indirect effect of pumping
that much money into the local economy
is the creation of 250 jobs.
She said 153,000 people visit Manatee
Springs annually. The springs generate
$5.6 million in economic impacts and
generate 121 jobs.
Lippincott said there is evidence
that Fanning Springs is no longer a first
magnitude spring. First magnitude springs
produce 64.6 million gallons per day.
She said the spring flow at Fanning
Springs from 1930 to 1999 was 107.5


longer flow

million cubic feet per second. From 1999
to 2008 the flow was 73 million cubic
feet per second. She said much of the
reduction in flow could be from drought.
The bulk of groundwater use in
Levy and Gilchrist counties comes from
agriculture. Agriculture uses the water to
produce food products, "so we're working
with agriculture to reduce consumption,"
she said.
Lippincott said efforts are being made
to protect the two springs.
She . said the Suwannee River
Partnership is working with agricultural
interest to reduce nitrate leaching into
groundwater.
The Levy County Commission has
adopted a springs' protection zone around
Fanning Springs and Manatee Springs to
regulate land uses in the springshed.
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection is planning
to implement a new program aimed at
reducing nitrates. It is known as Total
Maximum Daily Load. The program will
encourage best management practices to
reduce nitrates by 92 percent in Fanning
Springs and 79 percent in Manatee
Springs.
Lippincott also noted that Rotary Clubs
intheTri-County areahavebegun project
known as the Tri County Springs Promise
to encourage homeowners to reduce or
eliminate the use of lawn fertilizers and
to encourage regular maintenance of
septic tanks, both of which are sources of
nitrate contamination in the aquifer and
Suwannee River.

Yearty, Parker motions reveal legal battles before trial


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The federal bribery trial of suspended Levy County
commissioners Sammy Yearty and Tony Parker
began Monday in federal court with jury selection,
but it was preceded by a year of legal battles between
prosecutors and defense attorneys.
A series of pre-trial motions heard by Chief U.S.
District Judge Stephan Mickle last week provided
glimpses into the strategies of the government and
defense as well as the complex legal issues federal
jurors will hear in the case..
The judge ruled last week that 27 hours of secretly
taped conversations between Yearty and Parker and
a person described as "an undercover agent" will
-be excluded from the trial because their value to the
prosecution is outweighed by the danger of unfair
prejudice to two commissioners.
Mickle said the remaining seven' hours of tape-
recorded conversation can be used by the government
to attempt to demonstrate the rapport that developed
between Yearty and Parker and the undercover agent.
The judge said the willingness of Yearty and


Parker to discuss private or controversial matters
with the undercover agent rebuts the commissioners'
allegations that they were coerced or pressured, a key
element in their entrapment defense.
"The remaining 7 hours of recordings should be
sufficient to show Defendants' comfort with the agent,
however. Included within the 7 hours are various
conversations that show the rapport that developed
between the undercover agent and defendants,"
Mickle wrote in his order limiting the number of
recordings. He ordered the government to remove the
recordings that can't be played at trial.
The judge refused to grant a second pre-trial
motion by Yearty last week to dismiss Count III of
the indictment alleging Yearty made misstatements to
the FBI when he allegedly told them he had received
no money or other gifts from a -man named Sean
Michaels.
Mickle said he could not dismiss an indictment
unless there was a "legal infirmity" in the way the
indictment was worded. He said the defense would
have to build a factual case at trial proving Yearty
should never have been charged with making
misstatements to the FBI.


Yearty argued in his motion to dismiss that the
questions asked of him were so vague that his answers
were not relevant to the case the government is
trying to build against him.
"Defendant Yearty will have the opportunity to.
show at trial that the question asked was so vague
that persons of ordinary intellect could not agree upon
what was being asked," Mickle said in his ruling.
Yearty won a second pre-trial motion last week
when the judge ruled that his campaign finance
records could not be used by the prosecution to.
present its main case. The records can be used by
prosecutors only to impeach witness testimony that
favors Yearty.
"The government contends that in addition
to impeachment the records show defendants
predisposition to accept cash without reporting it,"
Mickle said in his ruling. "It is unclear whether the
campaign records could show this. In any event,
since this is not a campaign fraud case, introduction
of campaign finance records for this limited purpose
in likely to confuse and mislead the jury. The
substantially probative value is outweighed by the
danger of unfair prejudice."


Trial, from Page 1A


Quinn testified that he invited
Yearty and Parker to take an all-
expense paid trip to New York City
in 2007 and they accepted. He said
he offered to make the airplane
reservation, but asked Yearty if
he preferred to use his own credit
card to avoid leaving a paper trail.
Quinn testified Yearty agreed to use
his own credit card. Quinn told him
he would be reimbursed with cash.
On the eve of the trip in
November 2007, Quinn invited the
two commissioners to an expensive
suite of, rooms at the University
Hilton Hotel in Gainesville. The
undercover FBI agent treated
them to an expensive meal and
made' telephone calls to a rental
car company in New York City in
preparation for the trip. The two
commissioners were on film as
Quinn talked about the trip.
At some point during the
meeting, Quinn .testified he laid
$10,000 cash on the table in 10
piles. He said he gave $6,000 to
Yearty and $4,000 to Parker and
they stuffed the money in their
pockets before leaving the room.
Quinn claimed he added a $2,000
bonus as an extra for their trip. The


entire transaction at the hotel was
video-taped by Quinn and a second
FBI agent in another room. Jurors
will see the video of the money,
exchange today.
Parker and Yearty never
mentioned the word bribe in the
videos the prosecution played
for -the 12-member jury, nor did
they ever overtly promise to give
Quinn the political influence he
sought in exchange for money.
But Quinn tossed comments into
the conversation that indicated his
motives were questionable. At one
point he said, his company (Gideon
Development) "gives money to
make friends."
"You can leave your wallet
at home for this entire trip if you -
want," Quinn added later.
The rambling conversation,
which was humorous at times,
turned more serious when. the
subject of Vote buying was raised
by Quinn. He injected a comment
into the conversation, indicating if
"anything comes down the pike"
his company would be interested in
favorable votes.
Yearty responded, "As long as
we follow the rules and have the

proper zoning..." The remainder of
his statement was inaudible.
Chiefland realtor Doug King
was also recorded when Quinn
called him one day to ask about
Yearty. In the conversation that Was.
played for jurors, King said Yearty
"pretty much controls the county
commission."
When Quinn said he wanted to
"buy a token" for Yearty, meaning a
gift, King responded that Yearty was
a deacon in the Baptist Church. "I
wouldn't do that," King cautioned.
King suggested instead giving
Yearty a coupon to a restaurant like
Outback Steakhouse, a place where
he could take his wife.
. Quinn shifted the conversation
toward-the Chiefland city election.
He wondered why former Mayor
Betty Stockton had lost the election.
King mentioned a coalition might
be challenging the election results.
Quinn testified that the
investigation had no particular
target when it began, but it
developed former Dixie County
Commissioner Alton Land as a
focus of its investigation. He said
it was Land who indicated that he
should get in touch with Yearty.


Festival, from Page 1A


Two Tails Ranch of Williston will be bringing
the animals for the children to ride and feed, she
said, and since this will be the first year the animals
will be at the fair, she's expecting it to be a great
draw for the families with little ones.
Across the street from the Trailhead Park, the
Cruisin' for Grins car club will be holding a classic
car show.
At 3 p.m. at the Chamber building, the City's
Historic Train Depot Committee will be hosting
a book signing for local author Carolyn Cohens'
latest book, "Images of America - Levy County."
The book, which is a collection of historic
photographs of Chiefland and Levy County, is
"absolutely beautiful," Bell said.
At 4 p.m. f6r all the sports fans, the SEC
championship game will be broadcast on a large
screen TV provided by Aaron's.
And at 6 p.m., the lighted parade will take off
from Chiefland High School and make its way
down US 19 to South Third Avenue. Anyone is
welcome to participate in the colorful parade and
awards for the best float will be handed out after,
Bell said.,
Of course, Santa will be participating in the
parade, and afterward he will make his way down
to Trailhead Park to visit and take'photos with


children, she said.
The day's event will kick off at 10 a.m. with the
Second Annual Cancer Awareness 5 K Walk/Race
sponsored by the Chiefland Woman's Club.
The walk/run will begin at the park and end at
Manatee Springs Road and participants can stop
and turn around wherever they like, said Melanie
Hutchison, chairperson for the walk and Chiefland
Woman's Club treasurer.
Registration is $20 per person and all proceeds
go to the American Cancer Society.
Last year's race, which was held in October,
attracted about 60 people and a total of $1,200 was
donated, she said.
This year the Woman's Club decided to pair
the walk with another event in order to draw in
more participants. She said she hopes this year will
have a great turnout and meet and exceed what was
raised last year.
"As much as we can, that's what we're looking
for," Hutchison said concerning the money she'd
like to see raised.

CFCC prepares

for new name
Central Florida Community College is one
step closer to getting a new name.
The CFCC District Board of Trustees approved
the name College of Central Florida at their
Tuesday meeting. Other names recommended to
the board were: Central Florida State College,
Florida American College and State College of
Central Florida.
The college sought input from college and
community members after the board gave its
approval to begin the process in September. An
online survey, available Sept. 25 through Oct. 31,
garnered 1,480 submissions or 580 distinct names.
CFCC's Name Change Task Force selected four
to present to the board.
The name change will not become effective:
until July 1, 2010, and requires approval by the
State Board of Education and authorization by the
Florida Legislature.
"This is a very significant change for the
college. While our name may be changing, the
focus of the college will not," said Dr. Charles
R. Dassance, CFCC president. "The college will
continue to provide access to higher education
opportunities and remain a community focused
college."
Consideration of a name change followed the
board's decision to begin the application process
for the college to offer four-year degrees.

The Bronson Junior FFA placed first in the state for'Middle School
Tool Identification competition held in Haines City Nov. 18.
Four eighth graders competed: Landon Smith, Tyler Beauchamp,
Jimmy Jones, and J.R. Trimm. And there was one sixth grade alternate:
Brock Wilson.
The students had to be able to identify tools from a list of about 175
possibilities, said the Bronson Middle School FFA adviser Jennifer Bray.
They have been studying the tools and even had the Bronson Ace
Hardware at their disposal after hours to help learn what the tools look
like and their uses, she said.
The group came in first in the state competing against 52 teams. Eighth
grader Jimmy Jones was just one point away from placing first as high
individual in the competition, she said.
"They were excited," she said. "In eighth grade it's their last opportunity
to compete and they placed first."


Williston hospital future owners set sights on quality care


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
The interim administrator of Nature Coast Medical
Center in Williston said the hospital will soon have
new owners who are adding new equipment and
physicians to provide quality care.
"I do think the morale is high in the company.
They are happy to see change. You're going to
see premier rural health care in the future and the
community deserves it," said Jim Full, interim
chief executive officer of the hospital.
Dr. Bill Reed, an orthopedic surgeon, will be the
principal in Partners Healthcare Development, the
future owner of the hospital. The company plans to
purchase 10 hospitals across the country, including
Nature Coast Medical Center.


The goal is to purchase the hospital by the end
of the year. A proposal has been submitted to the
buyers.
New telemetry equipment has been purchased.
The future company is hiring a finance officer
and business office manager. The company is
negotiating to bring surgeons and other physicians
on board. A doctor for gastrointestinal issues will
be added for colonoscopies.
The company plans to add an MRI service by
the second week in December. About half of the
inpatient rooms have been renovated, The future
owner will renovate the remaining inpatient rooms.
Old wax is being removed from floors.'
Full said the hospital is developing standards
. for care. If someone arrives at the hospital with
chest pains, he said, staff will follow an established


protocol and do certain things to address the
problem immediately. The idea is to upgrade the
quality of care.
"They want to expand services and they talk a
lot about providing quality care," Full said.
Full said he has-been monitoring the health care
bill pending before Congress. The legislation will
have both good and bad impacts on the hospital.
The bill will give the poor greater access to medical
care, but Medicare and Medicaid reimbursements
are scheduled to be reduced.
While the hospital will be providing inpatient
services, Full said the majority of its work needs to*
be outpatient care and health and wellness.
"That's what we have to move to in this hospital.
We're not in the inpatient business," he said.

Dear Editor:
We find it necessary to respond to
several quotes made by Sheriff Johnny
Smith that appeared in a recent story in
the Journal regarding the negotiation
process. We need to clarify what actually
occurred at our meeting with the Sheriff
early in the process regarding the issue
of salary increases. Fully understanding
the economic issues facing Levy County,
we mutually agreed to table the subject
of pay until after the budget process was
complete. The Sheriff indicated his strong
support for some type of pay increase for
his employees; and in return, he wanted
our commitment of support by ensuring
a strong presence at upcoming budget
workshops and public hearings on the
matter. We upheld our commitment,
but unfortunately the Sherifl with his
selective memory did not.
What the Sheriff says is "an honest
oversight" on the part of Colonel Mike
Jphnson in "failing tp notice" over a

Iraq, Afghanistan wars among the



ongoing worries facing Americans


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


years.
I think many Americans are growing weary of
war. Call it war fatigue.
Bear in mind, United States involvement in World War II
lasted just four years.
The American economy is sagging under the weight of
rising war costs, coupled with the burden of high fuel prices
at the pump, the massive federal bailouts, and the general
,disillusionment with the way the country is being run.
Americans worry about the wars. They worry about
high fuel prices and the seeming indifference of Washington
politicians to the plight ofthe American small business owner.
They are concerned about the amount of debt the American
government is running up. They worry about the rising cost
of goods, services and food.
The wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have dragged on for
such a lengthy period that we don't hear as much about them
anymore. The economic recession is grabbing the headlines
instead. But the conflicts are in the back of everyone's mind,
like a nagging headache that won't go away. Many Americans
worry about the young soldiers fighting and dying for us in
both countries.
Here are some basic facts about the two wars.
The United States invaded Afghanistan in October of
2001 to root out the terrorists responsible for the 9/11 attacks
on American soil. American forces haven't found or killed
Osama Bin Laden, the man who concocted the plot. I would
consider the killing or capturing of Bin Laden progress.
Violence against American soldiers appears to be escalating
in Afghanistan. The number of American military killed in
Afghanistan this year was 298, compared to 12 killed in 2001,
the year the U.S. invaded. The total American military death
toll in Afghanistan is 928.
The invasion of Iraq occurred in 2003. The number of
military dead in Iraq has risen to 4,366. But the number of
war dead is decreasing. The number of American military
deaths in 2009 dropped to 145 compared to the peak years of
2004-06 when more than 800 American soldiers were killed
each year:
I don't profess to know how to end these conflicts. I know
we can't go on like this forever. The cost in American lives
and treasure is too high. I do believe we need to meet terrorism
head-on. But I am also a realist. These conflicts must end, and
the sooner the better.


I heard the other day that President Obama is proposing
to send 30,000 more American troops to Afghanistan. From
what I can gather, more troops are needed to control the surge
of violence in that war-torn country. I hope those troops can
be used to find Bin Laden as well.
I have said this before, but it seems that we no longer
wage wars in the way we once did as a country. We wage
televised wars in this brave new era, rather than waging the
old-fashioned variety. If you have read anything about World
War II, you know the Allied forces almost bombed Germany
into the stone age during the war, and they blasted two
Japanese cities with nuclear bombs. They managed to force
the combative governments of both countries to surrender. I
doubt that could happen in the modem era of televised wars.
The world would raise a fuss about.the bombing.
The war in Afghanistan is about 'to enter its ninth year.
The war in Iraq is about to enter its seventh year. I think we
all know the American military could bring enormous force
to bear on Iraq. It could bomb the country into rubble. The
military has that kind of firepower. The same could occur in
Afghanistan. It would make great television in a strange and
twisted way. But that's not going to happen. The wars will
drag on until a conclusion of some sort is reached.
History should be our teacher. Some ofyou may remember
the Soviet Union's war in Afghanistan in the 1980s. The war
became such a terrible drain on the Soviet Union in terms of
military dead and spending that the Soviets were forced to
withdraw. It was one of the defining events that broke up the
Soviet Union. Former President Ronald Reagan's decision to
secretly equip the Afghanistan resistance fighters with anti-
aircraft missiles and anti-tank missiles was the deciding factor
in the war. Now the resistance fighters are apparently fighting
us.
The American economy is being drained by the wars
in Afghanistan and Iraq, and it wouldn't surprise me if the
Russians were using Iranians to secretly train Afghan and
Iraqi fighters how to rig roadside bombs to kill American
soldiers. When wars drag on as long as these wars have,
anything becomes possible. It doesn't take much imagination
to believe the Russians are aiding the attacks on American
soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The Iraq and Afghan wars are expensive. The American
government is borrowing money to finance these wars. The
loss of American lives is growing.'The American government
needs to figure out a way to win these wars, or at least end
them in a way that doesn't come back to bite us later, militarily
or economically. That could be challenging in this modem era
of televised wars.


half-million dollars in the existing budget
is simply covering up for what we
believe is incompetence of the second in
command of the entire agency. After all,
we're talking about a significant amount
of money here, not a mere pittance that
simply was lost in the mix!
Finally, the Sheriff saying that the
PBA "puts on a show, when it has
an audience " is quite hypocritical
considering he did not object to us putting
on a show when endorsing his hotly
contested and uncomfortably close re-
election campaign by spending thousands
of dollars on a direct mail piece to voters
in support of his candidacy.
And, he didn't mind the show when
we crammed the County Commission
chambers with PBA members showing
support for their Sheriff during the budget
process.

My new


bout with


gout

By Rick Burnham
Editor

I have a few enemies.
For the most part, they are
people who despise my political
affiliation. They just do not understand
Conservatism and never will, and they see
me as a local example of what is wrong in
the world. That's okay - takes all kinds.
But there are other foes whose
disagreements with me have nothing to do
with politics. I came across one the other
day at the Homosassa Seafood Festival.
That festival, by the way, is.nothing
short of amazing. Vendors and booths,
and people of all shapes, colors and sizes
enjoying a crisp, cool autumn day. I was
among them, perusing the sights and
sounds with a dear friend. We had made our
way to the giant food court in the middle of
the festival when I came across one of the
meanest individuals I have ever known.
Gout.-
Without really thinking about my past
history with this disease, I ordered a big
plate of Jambalaya, which is, essentially,
the greatest food ever invented by mankind.
Spicy and tangy and wholesome and, well,
spicy, it is pretty much the perfect food.
They gave me a $3 plate of it that
was so generous, and so spicy, tangy and
wholesome, I ordered another. Two big
plates of Jambalaya, back to back, one of
the best culinary experiences I have ever
had.
But by the time we had finished our day
at the Homosassa Seafood Festival, the big
toe on my left foot had begun to bark. And
by the time I woke up the next morning, the
barks had changed to screams.
Fortunately for me, I still had some
medication left over from the last time I
had gout, and I instinctively sprang into a
pill-popping frenzy. It worked o er.time.
About 24 hours later, the uric acid that had
crystallized in my foot - creating tiny little
pins and needles to poke at nerves and
tendons - had sufficiently dissolved.
But it was a tough 24 hours.
The pain of gout cannot really be
described. Mr. Webster, in all his glory,
obviously never had gout or he would have
created a word that is more intense than
"excruciating" and "debilitating."
Imagine for a moment if you were
walking around at the state fair and some
dude was trying to win a stuffed animal
for his wife by swinging a sledgehammer
to ring the bell on that big thermometer
looking thing. Just about the time he swings
the sledgehammer, his mother-in-law walks
up and says "I bet he won't win a thing."
That makes him lose control and
accidentally hit you on the foot with the
sledgehammer. The pain you experience
when that sledgehammer hits your foot
is similar to the pain you would feel with
gout.
Or, maybe once the Fair is over, the
circus comes to town and you are there
checking out the elephant show, because
you really like elephants. That particular
day, though, an elephant named "Rosie"
gets upset and goes on a rampage. She
picks up her trainer with her trunk and
drops him on his head, and then heads for
you. You stand absolutely still, because
you know you can't outrun an elephant. It
works - Rosie narrowly misses you on her
way to freedom. She does step on your foot,
though, and it hurts so bad you say a wordy
dirty.
The pain you would experience when
Rosie the elephant steps on your foot is
somewhat akin to the pain you would
experience with gout.
Let's say you are walking down the
railroad tracks one Sunday afternoon and
off in the distance you hear a train coming.
You're feeling kind of froggy that day, so
you decide you will just jump off the tracks
at the last minute.
Trouble is, your timing is slightly off
due to the onset of middle age, and the
train, carrying a load of bowling balls to

Solving whose problem?


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

No one will really understand
politics until they
understand that politicians.
are not trying to solve our
problems. They are trying to solve
their own problems--,of which getting
elected and re-elected are number bne
and number two. Whatever is number
three is far behind.
Many of the things the government
does that may seem stupid are not
stupid at all, from the standpoint of the
elected officials or bureaucrats who do
these things.
The current economic downturn
that has cost millions of people
their jobs began with successive
administrations of both parties
pushing banks and other lenders to
make mortgage loans to people whose
incomes, credit history and inability
or unwillingness to make a substantial
down payment on a house made them
bad risks.
Was that stupid? Not at all. The
money that was being put at risk was
not the politicians' money, and in most
cases was not even the government's
money. Moreover, the jobs that are
being lost by the millions are not
the politicians'jobs-- and jobs in
the government's bureaucracies are
increasing.
No one pushed these reckless
mortgage lending policies more than


Congressman Barney Frank, who
brushed aside warnings about risk, and
said in 2003 that he wanted to "roll
the dice" even more in the housing
markets. But it would very rash to bet
against Congressman Frank's getting
re-elected in 2010.
After the cascade of economic
disasters that began in the housing
markets in 2006 and spread into the
financial markets in Wall Street and
even overseas, people in the private
sector pulled back. Banks stopped
making so many risky loans. Home
buyers began buying homes they
could afford, instead of going out on
a limb with "creative"-- and risky--
financing schemes to buy homes that
were beyond their means.
But politicians went directly in
the opposite direction. In the name
of "rescuing" the housing market,
Congress passed laws enabling the
Federal Housing Administration to
insure more and bigger risky loans-
- loans where there is less than a 4
percent down payment.
. A recent news story told of three
young men who chipped in a total
of $33,000 to buy a home in San
Francisco that cost nearly a million
dollars. Why would a bank lend that
kind of money to them on such a small
down payment? Because the loan
was insured by the Federal Housing
Administration.
The bank wasn't taking any risk.
If the three guys defaulted, the bank


could always collect the money from
the Federal Housing Administration.
The only risk was to the taxpayers.
Does the Federal Housing
Administration have unlimited money
to bail out
bad loans?
Actually
there have
been so
many -
defaults
that the r
FHA's own
reserves
have
dropped
below t
where
they are .. ..
supposed to '; : .. . .
be. But not -
to worry.
There will
always
be taxpayers, not to mention future
generations to pay off the national
.debt.
Very few people are likely to
connect the dots back to those
members of Congress who voted
for bigger mortgage guarantees
and bailouts by the FHA. So the
Congressmen's and the bureaucrats'
jobs are safe, even if millions of other
people's jobs are not.
Congressman Barney Frank is not
about to cut back on risky mortgage


loan guarantees by the FHA. He
recently announced that he plans to
introduce legislation to raise the limit
on FHA loan guarantees even more.
Congressman Frank will make
himself popular with people
who get those loans and
with banks that make these
high-risk loans where they
can pocket the profits and
pass the risk on to the FHA.
So long as the taxpayers
don't understand that all
this political generosity
and compassion are at their
expense, Barney Frank is
an odds-on favorite to get
re-elected. The man is not
stupid.
What is stupid is
believing that politicians
i are trying to solve our
problems, instead of theirs.
As for the FHA running
low on money, that is not
about to stop the gravy train, certainly
not with an election coming up in
2010,
The Federal Deposit Insurance
Corporation is also running low on
money. But that is not going to stop
them from insuring bank accounts
up to a quarter of a million dollars. It
would be stupid for them to stop with
an election coming up in 2010.

Obama's doubletalk on political dissent


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

President Obama traveled all the way to China
to praise the free flow of information. It's
the only safe place he could do so without
getting heckled. With a straight face, Obama
lauded political dissent and told Chinese students he
welcomed unfettered criticism in America. Fierce
opposition, he said, made him "a better leader because
it forces me to hear opinions that I don't want to hear."
How do you say "You lie!" in Mandarin?
While the kowtower-in-chief's press shop feeds
paeans to free speech into Obama's globetrotting
teleprompter, the White House is still waging war on
vocal foes at home. Obama has lectured his critics in
Washington to stop talking and "get out of the way."
He has stacked his carefully staged town halls with
partisan stooges and campaign plants throughout
the year. The president recently derided limited-
government activists in the Tea Party movement with
a vulgar sexual term used by left-wing cable host
Anderson Cooper on CNN and the MSNBC smear
merchants (just Google "teabagging" and you'll see
what they mean).
There are now more muzzled watchdogs in the
Obama administration than on the sidelines of the
Westminster Kennel Club show.
Most recently, two EPA lawyers critical of the
"fatally flawed" cap-and-trade system -- peddled by
their agency, the White House and the Democratic
majority -- were told by their superiors to yank
a video they posted to YouTube explaining their
views. Despite including a caveat that the opinions
expressed were their own and not the agency's, the
couple faces possible disciplinary action by the feds.
While demanding the video be yanked, the EPA
disingenuously claims it tolerates all dissenting views
of its employees.
The clampdown follows on the heels of the Obama
EPA's stifling of veteran researcher Alan Carlin's
dissent. He dared to challenge the agency's reliance
on outdated data to support its greenhouse gas "public
endangerment" finding. Carlin's report was squelched;
his office is now on the chopping block.
In China, 0 proclaimed himself "a big supporter
of non-censorship." But his FCC "diversity" czar,


Mark Lloyd, is bent on re-
engineering public airwaves by
redistributing free speech rights
from conservative haves who
earned their success to minority
have-nots who demand talk
radio entitlements in the name of
"media.justice."
And among Obama's closest
advisers is a husband-and-
wife duo who specializes in
marginalizing and stifling the
Democratic Party's most effective
enemies. Just days after White
House interim communications
director Anita Dunn -- the
administration's resident Mao
cheerleader and Fox News-basher
-- stepped down to take a planned
role as a "consultant" behind -
the scenes, her husband, Robert
Bauer, stepped up and shoved
aside White House counsel Greg
Craig.
The problem? Former Clinton lawyer Craig wasn't
tough enough for Chicago-on-the-Potomac. Obama
needed an intimate ally who will put hardball politics
ahead of policy and the law. Bauer fits the bill.
A partner at the prestigious law firm Perkins &
Coie, Bauer served as counsel to the Democratic
National Committee, the Democratic Senatorial
Campaign Committee, the Democratic Congressional
Campaign Committee and Obama for America. He
has served as Obama's personal attorney, navigating
the corrupted waters of former Democratic Gov. Rod
Blagojevich's pay-for-play scandals in Illinois. He
also served as legal counsel to the George Soros-
funded 527 organization America Coming Together
during the 2004 campaign.
That get-out-the-vote outfit, helmed by Patrick
Gaspard (the former Service Employees International
Union heavy turned Obama domestic policy chief),
employed convicted felons as canvassers and
committed campaign finance violations that led to a
$775,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission
under Bauer's watch.
During the 2008 campaign, Bauer pooh-poohed


GOP complaints about voter
fraud. While decrying the
Republicans' "fear message," it
was Bauer who was on a fear-
inducing crusade -- pulling out all
legal stops to silence conservative
critics of Obama's ties to the
radical left.
As I've noted previously, and
in light of Obamai's self-serving
praise for political dissent abroad,
S ' I note again: It was Bauer who
lobbied the Justice Department
unsuccessfully last fall to pursue a
" ' criminal probe of American Issues
. Project (AIP), an independent
-') . group that sought to run an ad
S,, spotlighting Obama's ties to
Weather Underground terrorist
Bill Ayers.
It was Bauer and his legal
goon squad who attempted to sic
the DOJ on GOP donor Harold
Simmons and sought his prosecution for funding the
ad. In a parallel effort launched the same week as
Bauer's legal efforts, a nonprofit called "Accountable
America," spearheaded by a former operative
of the Obama-endorsing MoveOn outfit, began
trolling campaign finance databases and targeting
conservative donors with "warning letters" in a
thuggish attempt to depress Republican fundraising.
It was Bauer who tried to bully television stations
across the country into pulling the spot. Team Obama
then'summoned their troops to bombard stations,
many of them owned by conservative-leaning
Sinclair Communications, with 93,000 e-mails to
squelch the commercial.
With Bob "The Silencer" Bauer now working
from the inside and Anita "News Commissar" Dunn
working from the outside, Obama has a state media
police apparatus the Chinese regime itself could
love.

additional volunteers to iden-

Christmas starts in Cedar Key with tree lighting


Children decorate the Christmas tree in City
Park on Friday with ornaments they brought
from home. Some had to be lifted onto their
parents shoulders to reach a branch, while oth-
ers chose the bottom branches.


Story and photo by Tara Massagee
Correspondent

As the countdown began, spectators watched
anxiously for the bright lights to appear before their
eyes to mark the celebration and start of the holiday
season.
Hundreds of- people braved the icy weather
on Friday night in anticipation of the first annual
Christmas tree lighting in Cedar Key.
"The tree just embodies everything that is warm
and giving in this community," said volunteer for
"Light Up Cedar Key" Andrea Dennison.
The 22-foot tree was decorated with over 4,000
lights and many different types of ornaments that
local residents placed upon the tree.
The tree chosen for the event was a, cedar tree,.
because it related to Cedar Key, Dennison said. She
said it was chosen back in May on the farm of Don
and Carol Joyse. Dennsion said the members for
Light Up Cedar Key were at the farm discussing
the plans for the holidays, when.they decided a.
tree lighting was a good idea. She said the Joyse's
offered to donate one of their cedar trees that they
had on the farm.
After choosing the. tree, Dennison said they
had to raise money to have the tree professionally
transplanted to the beach. She said Kona Joe's Caf6
stepped up to the plate and donated the $300 to have
the tree transplanted.
A live tree was chosen over a cut-down tree
because they wanted to keep within the "green"
theme, Dennison said.
"We're a pretty green community," Dennison
said. "We did not want to chop one down."
Gainesville resident C.J. Middleton drove out to
Cedar Key to have dinner and watch the tree lighting.
He said watching the lighting really brought forth the
holiday season and put him in the "Christmas spirit."


The tree lighting event developed from the idea
that it would bring Cedar Key together, Dennison
said.
She said she used to be a mayor of another city
where they had a tree lighting and it was always a
success.
"It's something to kind of organize the city," she
said.
Aside from the tree lighting, Cedar Key has
an entire list of activities planned from now until
Christmas.
On Dec. 5, 01' Saint Nick's Headquarters will be
set in the city park. Local businesses will have items
for sale and later in the evening the movie "The
Santa Clause" will be shown. The event is free and
open to the public.
Dec. 12 is community night at 5:30 p.m. in the
city park. There will be a boat parade and sugar
plum craft fair. The craft fair will have local and out-
of-town vendors displaying their items. Dennison
said later that evening they will be putting service
flags for the men and women fighting in the military
on the Christmas tree. She said there is a certain
protocol that goes along with placing the flags on
the tree, and afterwards they are given back to the
families.
The big finale, Dennison said, is the "Jingle Bell
Street Dance."
She said Second Street will be closed from 7:30
p.m. to 10:30 p.m. and decorated to look like the
1950s. She said there will be giant jingle bells, tons
of '50s music, and the whole street will be decorated.
There will also be hotdogs, hamburgers and root
beer floats available for "1950 style prices."
Those who intend to come do not have to dress
.up, Dennison.said, but they are asked to wear festive
attire.
"We've got a lot poodle skirts being sewn as we
speak," Dennison said.


Cedar Key waters farm new Florida-friendly clams


Story and photo by Tara Massagee
Correspondent

A new breed of clam is growing in the waters of
Cedar Key.
The University of Florida Aquatulture Extension
Program is working to form a clam that will be more
resilient in the summer heat and improve production
efficiency, said extension agent Leslie Sturmer.
This new clam is called the sunshine clam or
tropiclam. It is a cross between a hard clam and a
southern clam, Sturmer said.
"They are like cousins," she said.
The hard clam is found from Massachusetts to
Florida and the southern clam is found in the Carolinas
down to the Caribbean basin.
The hard clam does well in Florida, Sturmer said,
but the heat from the summer can cause growth to
decline.
We are looking for -more production efficiency,
Sturmer said.
In crossbreeding the hard clam with the southern
clam, its temperature variation may be more suitable
for a Florida climate and produce a hardier quality.
Sturmer said the project is in the very basic
beginnings but is following a dedicated program. She
said it takes about two years to span.the airi als and
then rear them to adulthood.
The clams then go through field trials, get
backcrossed (breed the hybrid or offspring back to
the original animal) and then introduced to thermal
changes-inducing heat-stressful conditions to see how
they perform.


As part of the field trials, the clams were served at
the annual seafood festival and the reviews were good,
Stunnrmer said.
Another clam that researchers are working with is
the sun-ray venus clam. The sun-ray is a species native
to Cedar Key and is being tested for use as. another
option to fisherman to further diversify the clam
industry, Sturmer said.
This project has been going on for about three
years, Sturmer said. The brood stock was obtained and
grown for two years until market-acceptance size was
reached.
Some of the results are being field tested in
Gainesville at area sushi restaurants. Sturmnner said
that next year they are planning on nursing seed to
hand out to growers in the spring and also work with
wholesalers.
"We don't want to replace the hard clam with this,
just diversify the product line," Sturmer said. ."The
price of clams is going down and cost of business is
going up."
Committee member of the Aquaculture Association
and owner of Dog Island Clam Farm, Rose Cantwell,
said she is very anxious to begin selling and distributing
both clam types. She said she thinks they will be very
appealing to the public. She said both have a great
flavor and should do well growing in Florida.
Without the help of the United States Department
of Agriculture, local industry people, grants and
Congresswoman Ginny Brown-Waite, the projects
would not be able to go on, Stunner said. Waite voted to
grant UF with $200,000 to keep the projects running.
Waite said in a press release, "These funds will


Leslie Sturmer, an aquaculture extension
agent with the University of Florida, holds
up some of the venus sun-ray clams that
have been grown at the research lab in Ce-
help support the University of Florida Shellfish
Aquaculture Extension Program in their endeavor to
produce a more cost effective Florida-friendly clam.
These advancements allow Florida Aquaculture
to remain competitive 'in the global market and
a significant contributor to the local economy."

Williston basketball overwhelms Chiefland


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

Any chance Chiefland had of
knocking off class 3A Williston Tuesday
evaporated in a third quarter flurry of
turnovers and fast break points.
Too much defense. Too much
pressure. Too much Isaac Floyd.
Floyd scored 26, including 10 in
the third quarter, as Williston ran away
with a 72-48 win at the Chiefland High
School gymnasium.
Williston opened a 24-9 first-quarter
lead behind balanced scoring - seven
Red Devil players made shots in the
period. Deonte Welch led the way in
the period with five, including two on
a driving layup to get his team on the
board with 7:21 left in the first. Four
other players added four points in the
period, including Floyd, Paul King,
Tony James and Raheem Mentor
James hit a soft 10-footer with 2:10 left
in the period to make it 19-4, and King
converted a steal into a fast-break layup
a minute later to make it 22-6.
Chiefland got seven first quarter
points from Eugene Carter, who led all
scorers in the game with 29 points. The
junior hit a three-point shot from the
top of the key at the buzzer to bring the
home crowd temporarily to life.
Carter came alive in the second
quarter, scoring 15 points, including
two on a layup following a pass from
Bo- Beauchamp at the 6:10 mark of the
quarter. Tony Bennett added back-to-
back layups in the second as well, and
Marquis Greene picked up three.
But Williston put the game away

Williston throttles Bronson


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

The vast majority of Levy County senior football
players have played their last game of organized
football. A select few, meanwhile, will likely take
their game to the next level.
With both the college and high school seasons
winding down, recruiting season is beginning to heat
up, and a number of the county's best talents are
reportedly drawing interest from universities around
the country.
Williston's Deonte Welch, who led his team to a 7-
3 record and a berth in the state playoffs in 2009, has
been contacted by a wide variety of schools, including
many in both the Southeastern Conference and the
Atlantic Coast Conference. Williston Head Coach
Derek Chipoletti said whoever manages to sign the
talented back will get a star in the making.
"Whoever ends up with him is getting a really
good football player," Chipoletti said. "He is basically
a can't miss Division One player. Once he gets into
a program where he is getting football year-round,
working out and doing the things that football players
do, he is going to flourish.

Williston High School boys' basketball coach
Steve Faulkner said his team played sloppy in their
Nov. 24 game at Bronson.
The Eagles were just excited to catch Williston on
an off game.
Seizing the lead seconds after the opening tip-
off, Williston never gave their opponents a chance to
come back in a 72-30 dismantling of Bronson.
"As a whole, they played really hard and that's
what I ask for," Faulkner said. "I can't complain
about the effort."
Combined with their hustle, Williston's mismatch
in athleticism was too much for Bronson to handle.
The Eagles could hardly dribble off an in-bounds pass
without being swarmed by the Red Devils.
"Coming from Gainesville, the athleticism here is
the same as any school in the city," Faulkner said. He,


5A state championship team last season.
However, Williston struggled defensively, allowing
multiple wide-open jump shots that gave Bronson the
majority of their points. The Red Devils' aggression
defensively resulted in turnovers more often than
not, but a lack of fundamentals hurt them when they
couldn't get the steal.
"Defensively, we have a lot of work to do if they
want to get to where they talk about," Faulkner said.
Williston's players and supporters expect the Red
Devils to contend for the state championship this-
season. Fueling these expectations is a veteran team
with a mix of several talented younger players.
Sophomore Deterion Ross led the team in their
game against Bronson with 20 points. He also
� harassed Eagles' point guard Zach Hamilton on every
possession in the first half, forcing Raymine Powers
to take over ball-handling duties.
Seniors Issac Floyd and Deonte Welch also scored

in the third, outscoring the hosts 25-8. Floyd made
four consecutive layups at one point in the period,
while Hunt made three inside shots, including a
layup on a pass from King with 2:03 left. Williston
led 64-35 at the end of three quarters.
Chiefland made a late push,, outscoring the Red
Devils 13-8 in the final quarter. Carter led the way
with seven points, while Jamantye Thompson picked
up four and Greene 2. Two of Thompson's points
came on a layup following a pass from Beauchamp
with 5:14 left.
But it was too little, too late. Floyd scored on a
left-handed hook shot with 2:45 left, and Jawantis
Collins added a layup of an offensive rebound a
minute later.
Later, Williston Head Coach Steve Faulkner
said his team simply had too much for Chiefland
to compete, particularly on defense. He added that
his team needs to be better conditioned in order to


stay with some of the better teams on the Williston
schedule.
"Our defensive intensity early was a factor," he
said. "We are still trying to get our conditioning back,
so they were able to make a little run in the second
quarter. Hopefully, once we get our conditioning
back that won't happen. We just happen to have a
few more athletes than they do at this-point."
Hunt scored 12 points for Williston, while Welch
scored seven, Mentor and Collins six, and Deterion
Ross five. James and King finished with four-apiece,
and Jordan White two.
Greene finished with seven for Chiefland, while
Perryman, Thompson and Bennett each scored four.
Williston travels to Fort White Friday and takes on
Suwannee County on Tuesday. Chiefland entertains
Trenton on Friday, and plays Bell at home on Monday.
Newberry then visits Chiefland on Tuesday.

"He can play a number of positions, from
running back and receiver to cornerback
and safety. And he can also be a kick return
specialist."
Mammoth Red Devil lineman Jordan
White, who helped pave the way for many
of Welch's long runs in 2009, committed
to Florida International University on
Monday, Chipoletti said. The coach added
that Isaac Floyd, who played linebacker
for the team in 2009, could very well see
action at the Division One level, although
he may be headed to a junior college first.
Markeuise Minor might.have a shot to play
at a Division Two school, Chipoletti said.
Chiefland placekicker Garrett Schmidt,
who also handled punting responsibilities
for the Indians in 2009, will likely suit up
for a university next year, according to his
father, Derek Schmidt. Garrett Schmidt
booted a pair of 41-yard field goals Oct. 16
when Chiefland beat Hamilton County 21-
j7.


The elder Schmidt, who kicked for Florida
State University in the late '80s and a couple of
professional teams later on, said late in the season
that his son had received attention from three
collegiate teams - Wabash College in Indiana, the
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and Elon
College in North Carolina.
Derek Schmidt said that teams normally spend
the early portions of the signing period filling
needs. Most of the time, he added, those needs do
not include a kicker.
"Very rarely does a team go out and use one of
the top scholarships for a kicker," he said. "What
we are expecting is for teams to fill some early slots
with blue chippers. I predict it will be a little bit
later on when he signs."
The ideal situation, Derek Schmidt said, might
be for Garrett to find a school where he can spend
the first year working out and getting adjusted to
campus life. He added that because Garrett gets
most of his distance from technique and form - and
not from his 140-pound frame - the future looks
br$ht.

careers at universities around the country.

in double figures with 18 points and 10
points, respectively. This was the first
game for both players after they spent
the fall playing with Williston's football
team. Faulkner said both players are
adjusting to basketball after having
only one practice all season and he
expects both to improve as the season
progresses.
After Williston took a 43-21 lead into
the half time, the mercy rule came into
effect and the clock ran continuously for
the entire second half. The Red Devils
continued playing at the torrid pace
of the first two quarters and outscored
Bronson 29-9 in the second half.
Hamilton started finding his shot
in the second quarter, but it was not
enough to stop Williston's onslaught.


He finished with nine points on the
night to lead the Eagles.
Bronson could hardly get a shot off
in the first quarter and called time out
down eight points with a little over
three minutes gone in the period. Floyd
capped off the quarter with a dunk off a
fast break and Williston ended the first
up 23-12.
In addition to Ross' 20 points,
Floyd's 18 and Welch's 10, Raheem
Mentor added nine. Kelcy Coleman,
Tony James and Stephen Brown each
added four for the Red Devils.
Along with Hamilton's nine, Powers
and Marvin Walker each scored six points
for Bronson. Willie Ellison scored four
points and Darius Thomas and Dustin
Crutchfield added two apiece.


Raymie Powers runs Bronson's offense. He took over for Zach Ham-
ilton in the second half at point guard.


Williston's Deonte Welch shoots a free throw in his first game with
the basketball team after playing for the school's football team.

Drill Team
The Arena at Goethe Trailhead Ranch was alive with excitement and fun for
everyone on Saturday Nov. 21. Teams of Horses and Riders were competing
for first place in four divisions of Drill Team Competition. Spectators were
treated to beautiful weather and edge-of-your'seat entertainment. There were
exciting drills in a unique show of music, horses and riders in costumes, some
teams with props, trying to thrill one and all.

PLAYING THE HAND YOU'RE DEALT


Back in school they used to call me Flickty. I don't
know where in the world they got that name, but it
just seemed to fit. The Sheffield Unabridged would
define it as: (Flickty- Someone coordinationally
challenged. Someone un-swooft.) I think it's mostly
these big feet of mine; size fourteen. They cause me
to run like a punch-drunk Ronald
McDonald with a bad rash!
My football coaches never
knew what to do with me. I
weighed a buck fifty and couldn't
keep up with the lineman.
So, as most flickty folks do, I
eventually drifted towards slow
pitch softball. There, the coaches
always pretended to be nice to me.
Though it's awfully suspicious -i ,
how I always mistakenly end up
with last year's schedule and the
wrong color jersey.
Naturally I was a little wary
when a team called me to come
fill in recently. Had they forgotten But Anyl
how many triple plays I had hit with C
into?
"Ah who cares?" I thought. It
was time old Flickty came out of retirement. I'd been
wedged in behind that desk too long. Besides, I'd
have a whole week to get back in shape.
Game day came and along about the third inning I
finally swaggered up to the batter's box. I cleaned my
cleats, spit, scratched real good, and did everything
else cool I could think of just short of calling my


shot. With a show like that, nobody could've guessed
the truth; my only chance of not getting thrown out at
first was to hit it out of the park.
This was forefront in my mind as the pitcher
wafted that first big grapefruit down the pike. I took
a cut that would've made the Mighty Casey blush.
The wind shear alone blew off the
pitcher's hat! Unfortunately, I'd
swung several seconds early and
I fear I may have not actually hit
the ball until my backswing. The
- ';i'^ pitcher charged the little dribbler,
.. gathered up his hat, fixed his hair,
and was ready to toss the ball to
first before I could stumble across
home plate.
In the back of my mind I
knew both people in the stands
were probably watching me, so
I decided to be a good sport and
run it -on out. At least I could
show them I never quit. In fact
Vay... they used to tell me, "Flickty, you
uy Sheffild never know when to quit!"
Unfortunately, there seemed
to be some sort of mix up in
my central nervous system that day. My brain was
sending out running instructions, but my legs and
arms seemed to be receiving fighting signals. I
commenced whooping the air like a one man gang.
I'm telling you I was almost back peddling. I nearly
cleated a guy over by the dugout while simultaneously
tripping over the pitcher's mound!


When the dust finally cleared, I stood there on the
bag, huffing for air, looking to the umpire for the call.
He wasn't paying me no mind; he had his eye on the
next batter who was already working a full count.
I'll admit; the temptation has been to look into
some sort of foot reduction surgery. Or maybe join a
Flickties Anonymous. I'm sure there's one out there.
But the more I thought about it the more I realized
that it's just time I put my foot down, and without
shame. You see, it's, God who made me like this, and
He likes me just the way I am. (To the praise of the
glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted
in the beloved Ephesians 1:6 KJV)
God doesn't want me to be like everybody else.
My fingerprints and DNA are proof of it. You know
what? I'm an original, sculpted by the Master
Himself. I think I'll just start celebrating my un-
swooftness!
We've all been dealt a different foot... I mean
hand. We all have our strengths to play to, and our
weaknesses to overcome. The best thing we can do
is to just be a good sport and run it on out. After all,
we're just people. There's only one perfect One, the
Lord Jesus, and He wants us to find our fulfillment
in Him.
But anyway- I may be Flickty, but these are the
feet the Lord has made, and I will rejoice and be glad
in them.

Suwannee Valley Players spread yuletide cheer


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The Suwannee Valley Players know
when they've stumbled upon a good
thing, so why not keep it around?
That's why this season's holiday
production is one that was performed
by the Players nine years ago. "Not
a Creature was Stirring...Not Even a
Moose" was brought back and will open
Friday at the Chief Theatre.
It all centers on heartless newspaper
editor J.J. Games, played by Keith
Brayman, who will do anything to get
the perfect angle on a story.
When Barney the janitor, played by
Andy Kidd, insists on Games reading a
letter to Santa from a boy who recently
lost his father, Games is on the trail for
a holiday human-interest story that will
sell, sell, sell.
The only problem is, no one can
figure out who this child is and Games
has made too many enemies in the city to
do the necessary investigative work.
The mayor, about whom Games has
written one too many revealing stories, is
out for blood and finds his chance when
Games needs information that's stored
at the City Hall. After a few hilarious
events, Games is soon running from the
law.
The office staff thinks their problems
may be solved when an earlier attempt to
spruce up the office for Christmas turns
up a box with one lone stuffed moose.
The moose, it turns out, is a "wishing
moose."
With a little help from the competitive
paper's editor, his two assistants, a
biplane pilot and Barney, Games finally
learns the true meaning of Christmas but
not without first experiencing numerous
laughs, a few crazy get-ups, and a couple
of unexpected twists at the end.
The Players have this performance
perfectly cast and now it will kickstart
the Christmas spirit for any who see it.
"It's got a great message," said the


The Suwannee Valley Players are in their final days of rehearsal before "Not a Creature was Stirring...Not
Even a Moose" opens Friday. Here, main character J.J. Garnes (center),played by Keith Brayman, recov-
ers from a crazy plane ride. His assistant, played by Susan Lastra, (right) and the plane pilot, played by
Kelci Grant, plot their next move.


play's director Linda Hagan. "The
message is, yes, there is magic at
Christmas time."
She said what each audience member
will take away from the performance will
be different.
"It's individual as to what each person
is needing at that moment. But what I'm
hoping for is to start the holiday season
off on a good foot," she said.
She said the play was selected, not
only because it was such a hit nine years
ago, but because it is in line with this
year's comedy theme.
"In light of the economic times, we
thought a little lightheartedness was
in need by everyone, including all the


actors," she said.
This is the fourth Players'performance
for Brayman, who plays Games. He said
he is a fan of Christmas because it is a
really meaningful time of year and this
play brings that message out.
"Not a Creature was Stirring..." is a
secular way to show that Christmas is
about a time for giving and being with
the ones you love, Brayman said.
"It's nice to see a guy who is essentially
a Grinch get transformed and learn what
Chlistmas is really about," he said.
Kidd, who plays Barney, made his
return to the Players after an absence of
about five years. He said he loves playing
characters like Barney because they are


simple and have a good, easy demeanor.
"He's nice and low-key and yet he
knows things the other people don't
know," Kidd said.
"Not a Creature was Stirring...Not
Even a Moose," will open this weekend
at the Chief Theatre, 25 E. Park Ave.,
Chiefland. Performances will be Friday
and Saturday at 8 p.m., and Sunday at
2:30 p.m. The show will carry on to next
weekend Friday and Saturday, Dec. 11-
12, at 8 p.m. with a special matinee show
on Dec. 12 at 2:30 p.m., and Sunday,
Dec. 13, at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $10 for adults, $8 for
students and seniors and children under
6 free.

Visitors travel in time to Clay Landing Days


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Visitors to Manatee Springs State Park were taken
back in time Saturday to an era when televisions and
cell phones and indoor plumbing would not come into
being for more than a century.
It was a time when pioneer families living near the
Suwannee River at Clay Landing made do with what
they could produce from the land.
The park provided guided tours through the forested
areas of the park. Visitors were introduced to settlers
living beneath a tent in the woods and a Seminole
warrior and his family living in a chickee, a dwelling
made of logs and covered with tightly-thatched palm
fronds for a roof.
Park Ranger Renee Waldo said the name of
Saturday's event comes from the old Clay Landing
settlement that dates back to the 1840s. Clay Landing is,
now the name of a Levy County park on the Suwannee
River. It adjoins Manatee Springs State Park.
A sign along one of the trails in Manatee Springs
State Park noted that Isaac Hardee owned a portion
of the land that later became park property. He bought
the property in 1860 for $1.25 per acre. Waldo said
Hardee's property was probably in the northern part
of the park.
The Maria Trespar family was also a settler in the
area.
The state acquired the land for Manatee Springs
State Park in 1949.
"The land has a fascinating history," Waldo said.
"We are trying to bring back that time where everything
on the land was used."
Friends of Manatee Springs'State Park co-sponsored
Clay Landing Days. Dexter Hughes and Carlton


Pierce 'loaded visitors onto a covered wagon for the
tours. Many visitors took a hay ride on the tour.
Visitors were introduced to a pioneer family that
created a camp fire with no matches. They cooked
tasty biscuits and distributed them to visitors. Gary
Kemp and his wife Xenia Kemp played the main roles.
Gary Kemp demonstrated how to make a fire using
char-cloth and flint.
Next door, Harvard Burney introduced visitors to
his Seminole encampment. Seminole ladies rested
comfortably in the chickee hut on a raised sleeping
platform. Betty Debary, Heather Nealey and Laney
Bumey were the main actors.
Burney noted that a group of Seminoles were
cooking a pig out back. He said the settlers next door
were missing a hog, but he added, it wasn't the same
hog.
At trail's end, visitors watched Betty-Lou Seager
spin yam from a living angora rabbit named Tac.
She would pluck small bits of angora wool from the
rabbit's shaggy coat as she manipulated the spinning
wheel with her foot. Tac sat quietly ignoring the
spinning wheel and the plucking of the wool from his
back. Seager was wearing an angora shawl made from
rabbit wool.
Next door, Tom Seager demonstrated his skills
as a "white cooper," a person who fashioned water
buckets, churns and other household items from
precision-crafted wood, ringed with wide iron bands.
The white coopers often traveled. They would build
their precision-crafted household items in exchange
for a meal and six-pieces of wood they could use for
next wood product, according to Seager.
The early settlers used these wooden vessels in
their kitchens to hold flour or water or to churn butter.
The coopers used no glue or nails to build their wood

State Park, performs on her McSpadden

household products. Seager said he apprenticed for six
weeks under a white cooper, but it took him a year
before he could make a cooper product that didn't
leak.
