County against


appointment of


state water czar
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Levy County Commissioner Lilly Rooks asked the
state legislative delegation to fight against any attempt
by Gov. Charlie Crist to appoint a water czar.
Rooks said Levy County's ecology is fragile
and she fears a water czar could make a decision to
transfer water to South Florida without the county's
permission.
"I don't want to see our water transferred to South
Florida because one person, says so," Rooks said.
Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-Gainesville, said the
delegation is committed to not letting that happen.
"We don't want to get a scare up before it's a
'reality," Oelrich said.
Oelrich said South Florida needs to do all it can to
meet its water needs before it comes here for water.
He said he doubts it would be cost effective to run a
large water line from South Florida to this area.
"Number one it is not cost effective and number
two it would damage our area," he said.
State Rep. Leonard Bembry, D-Greenville, said
he considers water as much a natural resource as the

Tim Browning will be
moving to Levy County soon
as part of his new job as Levy
County judge.
A prosecutor for 20 years,
Browning was selected last
week by Gov. Charlie Crist
as the replacement for retiring
County Judge Joseph Smith.
"I'm extremely fortunate,"
Browning said. "I feel very
happy."
Smith's final day in office is
Dec. 31. Browning is working
alongside Smith to get a sense
of what a county judge does on
a day to day basis.
Smith replaced the
late County Judge W.O.
Beauchamp 16 V2 years ago.
Both Smith and Beauchamp
were popular political figures
in Levy County.
Browning, who lives in
Gainesville, has some big
shoes to fill.
"I think Levy County has
benefited from having two
judges with such a high degree
of character and integrity,"
Browning said.
Browning has worked as one
of the Eighth Judicial Circuit's
top prosecutors in rent years
handling special prosecution

He started his career as a
prosecutor in Levy County
handling misdemeanor crimes.
He was assigned to Gilchrist

He feels fortunate to

Smith, the county judges who
preceded him.
"Literally, to me, they


represent an extraordinary
legacy, and I feel fortunate to
have known them personally,"
Browning said.
State Attorney Bill Cervone
said Browning resigned
sometime in October, effective

Cervone said he didn't want
to be torn between two jobs.
"Tim did a NWonderful job

serious crimes for us," Cervone
said. "He is a very talented trial

in him handling the most

Commissioners expand policy on youth recreation funds


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer.

Levy County commissioners voted Tuesday to
expand their policy that guides each board member
on how they can spend the $12,000 they allocate
annually for youth recreation in their districts.
Commissioner Marsha Drew raised the issue of
how the money could be spent noting she would like
to use the money she receives on a summer program
for youth, but the policy doesn't allow it.
"Recreation for children isn't necessarily just for
ball teams," she said.
Drew said the money for her district has typically
been spent on youth baseball teams. She wants to put
together a youth summer camp.
Commission Chairman Nancy Bell agreed the
policy was vague and there are other sports that
should qualify for the funding, but she said the
money also needs to be tracked and audited to ensure
the funds are properly spent. She also wants that to
be part of the policy.
Bell said many of these youth organizations
charge user fees to participate, but they also get
money from the county commission and businesses.
She suggested youth organizations that receive the
money be required to fill out a "990 form" showing
how they spent the county's money.
County Coordinator Fred Moody was instructed
to rework the youth recreation policy to comply with
the suggested changes.
Commissioner Danny Stevens reminded the
board that the original intent of the recreation funds
was to provide cities with funding to provide youth
recreation for kids in rural areas. Many of the youth
programs in the county are city-based, but a majority
of the participants often come from outside the city
limits.
Stevens said the $12,000 goes-only so far and it
would be a good idea to increase the allocation for
each commissioner. His suggestion drew no support.
Commissioners were allocated $4,000 annually to
spend on youth recreation in their districts until last
year when the total was raised to $12,000.
In other business:
- Commissioners awarded a certificate of
appreciation to Bob Wolk, division manager of
Waste Pro, a private waste collection company.
Wolk wanted to perform a community service for
the county. His company provided waste disposal
bins and labor to clean up sites that were under code


Waste Pro Division Manager Bob Wolk receives a certificate of appreciation from County
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell and county code enforcement Officer Ted Parada for
his community service work. Wolk provided waste bins and manpower to clean up sites that
had been cited for code enforcement violations, but were hardship cases. The sites might
have been very difficult to clean up without his community service work.


enforcement. He asked that the company's efforts be
limited to hardship cases or medical hardships.
Wolk provided manpower, equipment and waste
bins to clean up a majority of the site for Tim Taylor
and his family.
The company provided a waste bin for disposal
of miscellaneous debris on the property of Raymond
Haffers, a disabled Vietnam veteran.
Waste Pro provided Miss Marge Phelps, an elderly
widow, with manpower, equipment and waste bins to
clean up her site.
The company also provided Janet LeBron, an
elderly widow with a medical disability, a waste bin
for disposal of materials and other miscellaneous
debris.
- Commissioners placed N.E. 1401h Court on the
county road paving list. The county places traffic
counters for three days on roads proposed for paving,
requiring a traffic count of 250 vehicles per day. It
also requires 20 houses per mile.
Commissioners Nancy Bell and, Chad Johnson
questioned the policy.

"It doesn't seem right that a person will live in a
location 50 years and pay taxes and never qualify for
paving," Bell said.
Administrative- Road Superintendent Bruce
Greenlee said he doesn't know how the county would

one person would be living onit.

Local man:


Leave my


smokes alone

By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Abraham Bltch told the legislative delegation last
week he is tired of being overtaxed on cigarettes.
"I am a smoker. I like it. I don't want to quit. I
don't think I should be told to quit," Blitch said.
When he started smoking Marlboros, Blitch said
he paid $1.40 a pack. Now he pays $3.20 for a pack.
Blitch said he thinks it is wrong to place the
cigarette tax money in the state's general fund when
a specific group of people is targeted.
"Today it's my cigarettes, tomorrow it will be
your Coke," he said.
Blitch, who ran for the county commission and
lost, and who was not appointed to replace County)
Commissioner Tony Parker when he %%as indicted on
bribery charges, has been active in county politics for
many years.
He also asked lawmakers to protect small
businesses from being run out of business.
Blitch said businesses once paid $8 per employee
for unemployment insurance but the cost is now $100
per employee.
"You can't keep strapping us % with more taxes and
expect us to stay in business," Blitch said. "When
my price goes above the value of my product. I close
the doors."
Oelrich said the legislature raised taxes it hadn't
increased in 25 years to make up a shortfall in tax
revenues. He said they did raise the tax on cigarettes
and his feelings were mixed on that move.
"We had to do the best %we could with %what %we
have," he said.

waterfront beaches in the state.
He said he would hope the legislature would not see
fit to approve a water czar.
County Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell
echoed Rooks' comment, saying Levy is a fragile
county and needs the legislature's protection.
Bell thanked lawmakers for granting a three-year
extension of the Certificate of Need for the Tri-County
Hospital in Chiefland. She said it is a for-profit hospital
and is needed, especially now that Alachua General
Hospital has closed its doors. She asked lawmakers to
keep an eye on the CON.
She also encouraged lawmakers to fund construction
of the new Central Florida Community College in
Chiefland. The state currently lacks the public education
dollars to build the school, but Bell said it's a worthy
project that will help Chiefland and every effort should
be made to find funding.
"I just know that it's a project that could put jobs in
our area right away," Bell said.
She also thanked legislators for their open door
policy. She said she feels she can pretty much walk into
their offices and be heard.
Oelrich said the Agency for Health Care
Administration handles certificates of need and his
staff will keep monitoring the hospital CON.
In other business, Bronson City Clerk Kelli Brettel
said the town has made considerable progress updating
its audits and will soon be looking for sewer and storm
drainage grants. She said Bembry has already been to
her office to talk about the issue.

hearing last week. From the left are House Speaker Larry Cretul, R-Ocala, State Rep. Ron

Loss of bridge projects draws ire

at Levy legislative delegation hearing


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

State Rep. Leonard Bembry promised Levy
County officials last week he would investigate why
the Florida Department of Transportation rescinded
approval of four county bridge projects worth
millions of dollars.
A Nov. 25 letter from FDOT said the agency
"inadvertently used a report" that identified the
bridges as being adopted projects in the five-year
work plan when in reality they were only "candidate
projects" that had no funding.
The letter said FDOT mistakenly sent
memorandums of agreement to the county
prematurely.
"I apologize for the confusion and
miscommunication," said Jordan L. Green, Rural
Area Transportation Development Engineer for
FDOT.
The decision by FDOT not to fund the bridge
projects drew an angry response from Levy County
Commissioner Lilly Rooks at the annual legislative
delegation hearing last week. Bembry was one of
five lawmakers listening to her comments.
Green has long enjoyed good relations with Levy
County. County officials have often bragged about his
willingness to listen to the county and consider road
surfacing projects of importance to Levy County.
But Green's letter brought a public rebuke from
Rooks.
"I don't think it was a mistake. I think the money
was taken from Levy County and allocated to the
state fiigh speed railroad," she told lawmakers at the
courthouse hearing.
The bridges to be replaced included the bridge
on County Road 339 over the Waccasassa River.
It was the only bridge project that survived. FDOT
indicated the bridge would be replaced in 2012. The
underpinnings of the bridge are weak. Eighteen-
wheel milk tanker trucks cross the bridge daily on


their way to U.S. 27A near Bronson.
The four bridge projects that were lost were the
County Road 326 Bridge over the Waccasassa River,
the C Street Bridge over the Cedar Key Channel,
the bridge at County Road 456 and Gulf Boulevard
over Daughtry Bayou in Cedar Key and the bridge
at County Road 456 and Gulf Boulevard over Lewis
Pass in Cedar Key.
Rooks said the four bridges are in bad shape and
the projects need to be funded. She said the timing
of the announcement by FDOT appeared to her "to
have something to do" with the state's decision to
fund a high speed rail project.
"This was something I had come to the legislative
delegation over and over again and begged to have
funded," Rooks said. "It's very disappointing to know
we had a funding commitment and that it has been
withdrawn."
Bembry, D-Greenville, expressed dismay atFDOT's
claim that it mistakenly led county commissioners to
believe the county bridge projects would be built.
"They rescinded the funding, that's what they did,"
Bembry said. He planned to meet personally with the
FDOT secretary to find out what happened.
The legislative delegation consisted of Bembry,
next year's delegation chairman, House Speaker
Larry Cretul, R-Ocala, State Sen. Steve Oelrich, R-
Gainesville, State Sen. Charles Dean, R-Inverness
and State Rep. Ron Schultz, R-Homosassa.
The county commission was notified on Oct. 6 by
Levy County Administrative Road Superintendent
Bruce Greenlee that the county had received five
memorandums of agreement for the bridge projects.
The memorandums granted FDOT permission to
conduct pre-construction activities and gave the
agency access to the work sites during construction.
The memorandums were also a contract that explained
the county's maintenance responsibilities once the
construction was finished.
The county commission voted to approve the
memorandums at the Oct. 6 meeting.

attorneys.
Browning emerged as a finalist along
with Ronald Stevens and Charlotte
Weidner, two Levy County attorneys
with good reputations as attorneys. All
three were later interviewed by Crist,
who made the final selection on Dec. 14.
One of the questions Browning was
asked by the 10-member committee was
whether he could make the adjustment
from being a prosecutor to being an
impartial judge who could hear every
case fairly and render a just decision,
whether it would be criminal or civil.
Browning said he realizes that
not every case that comes before him
will be what the people seated in the
courtroom might consider a major case,
but he will approach the case knowing
it is extremely important to the person
appearing before him.
"Every case is important to the
individual in front of you," Browning
'said. "What may seem like a small case
to some people is extremely important
to the person it impacts."
While Browning concedes that he
. does bring a lot of trial and courtroom
experience to the job, he said he also
brings a quality that may be difficult to
measure, but it means a great deal to the
residents of the county.
"I also bring a total commitment to
the people of Levy County and a work
ethic to fulfill that responsibility," he
said.


New commissioner faces 2010 dilemma


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

County Commissioner Chad Johnson
confirmed Tuesday he is building a new
home.in a different district than the one
he lives in now, but he said the situation
is more complicated than it appears
and he hasn't figured out yet if he will
keep his current seat or run in the new
district.
Johnson was appointed earlier
this year by Gov. Charlie Crist to
take the place of suspended District 1
Commissioner Tony Parker, who was
convicted this month on bribery charges.
Johnson said he had been told by the
governor's office his appointment was
temporary and he would have to run in
2010.
He 'learned a week ago through
County Attorney Anne Bast Brown that
the appointment could last through 2012
depending on what happens in Parker's
case. If Parker overturns the conviction
on appeal, assuming he appeals, he
would get his job back and Johnson
would be out of a job in that district.
But if Parker is sent to prison,
Johnson conceivably could remain the
District 1 commissioner through 2012,
assuming he continues to live where he
is now, in District 1.
When he received the revised
information from Brown, Johnson said


he had already begun construction of
his new home in District' 2. If he and
his family move to the new site when
the home is finished, he would be living
in District 2, the seat belonging to
Commission Chairwoman Nancy Bell.
"I haven't made up my mind what
I'm going to do," he said.
Johnson and his wife Angela selected
the home site in 1996 when he ran
against Bell and lost. He was living out
of the district that year but had planned
to move to the District 2 home site if he
won. State law requires him to live in
the district he represents. But he didn't
win. Plans to move to the new site were
mothballed.
When Johnson was appointed earlier
this year to. take the place of Parker
during his suspension by the governor,
he began looking at his options again,
not knowing if Parker would be
acquitted at his December trial. Parker
was convicted in early December, but
he has not been sentenced and cannot
file an appeal until he is sentenced on
April 5.
Johnson said he assumed he would
have to run next year regardless of
which district he was living in, but he
asked.Brown to ask for a legal opinion
on the resign to run law. He wanted to
know when he would have to resign
from District 1 if he decided to run in
District 2. l


To his surprise, he found out he
might have his District 1 job through
2012.
A Dec. 11 e-mail from Assistant
General Counsel Gary J. Holland to
Brown said there is no ending -date
on Johnson's appointment. He will
continue to serve for the balance
of Parker's suspension from office
through 2012 unless Parker reverses
his conviction and takes back his seat,
or he is removed from office by the
state Senate, or if Johnson resigns and
vacates the seat.
Holland said. Johnson may not
qualify for a different commission
seat without resigning from his current
post. He would have to submit a
letter of resignation 10 days prior to a
qualifying, with an effective date for
the resignation no later than Nov. 16,
2010. The governor would appoint a
replacement if Johnson were to resign
from District 1.
All of this is terribly complicated.
Johnson said his wife Angela is
ready for the new home. He doubts
they would postpone moving to the
new site or selling their new home to
remain in District 1. He said his wife
has her heart set on moving into the
new home, and she is the boss.
"No matter how good the job is, if
the wife isn't happy at home, it just
isn't worth it," Johnson said.

Holiday hayride informs riders of Ceda
Story and photo by Anna Suggs .. *
Assistant Editor o-,;


Visitors of the Cedar Key Scrub
State Reserve had a chance to celebrate
the holidays in an unconventional way
on a chilly day Saturday.
The Scrub rangers held two special
holiday hayrides that took about 15
people each ride around a 5.5-mile
stretch of trails to educate on the
park's ecosystem and inhabitants.
The hayride is usually held during the
Cedar Key Star Party in February, but
the park decided to hold it Saturday
in conjunction with the city's holiday
celebration also taking place that day.
Tammy Jones,. Park Services
Specialist for the Cedar Key Scrub
State Reserve, Cedar Key Museum
State Park and Waccasassa Bay State
Park, was the interpreter for the rides
and told the riders about the park's
resources as well as its plants and
animals.
The ride, which took about an hour,
was for anyone who wanted to know
why the Cedar Key reserve exists and


Tammy Jones, the Cedar Key Scrub State Reserve Holiday Hayride
interpreter, points out the natural wonders of the reserve to the rid-
ers during the noon hayride Saturday.


prescribed fire, she said. That is why
all homes neighboring wildland should
commit to the "fire-wise" practices:
.lean - having a 30-foot buffer around
the home; clean- removing dead debris


genetically different from other Scrub
Jays in the state, she said. I
The park does band the legs of the
birds and monitor them closely, which
allows them to have a federal permit


ir Key Scrub
to use a jay 'call to attract the birds to
them, Jones said.
At the stop along the trail where the
birds are known to stay, Ebersol played
the call and the riders watched the sky
for any sign of the birds.
Although Jones said the Florida
Scrub Jays are not shy animals, none
of the birds came out during the noon
ride.
Katherine McCandless and her
husband, Greg, were two of the riders
who participated in the event. They
live in Jacksonville but have property
in Cedar Key near the park and hope
to retire there soon because they love
the natural beauty of the area.
They said they ride their horses in
the reserve a couple times a month
and are happy now that they learned
a little bit more about the scientific
information of the park by participating
in the ride.
"It was so informative," Katherine
McCandless said. "I loved getting
details on the habitats, the birds, the
animals and what's being done to
preserve the land."


Residents, visitor
By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The month-long festivities of "A Cedar Key
Christmas" wrapped up Saturday, and there was
barely a moment for residents to catch their breath
amongst all the excitement.
Due to last weekend's rainy weather, the boat
parade, service flag dedication and potluck in the
park was rescheduled for Saturday. The Visions of
Sugarplums Craft Fair and Jingle Bell Hop street
dance went on as scheduled over the weekend.
"We had a lot of activities crammed in one day
because the weather was so horrible the week before,
but we got it all done," said Judy Duvall, the craft fair
organizer.
This was the first year Cedar Key has held a
month-long celebration for Christmas, and it took
many groups and individuals to pull it off.
It all kicked off the day after Thanksgiving with a
tree lighting and decorating ceremony in the park that
showed a lot of community spirit, Duvall said.
The city had a large tree transplanted to the park
so that the ceremony could be held every year.
Saturday's festivities lasted all day and many were
first-time events that will also be held every year.
The craft fair in the park lasted all day beginning at
9 a.m. There were about 18-20 vendors and a couple
hundred people who browsed the booths, Duvall
said.
After the fair, the boat parade that was cancelled
last week was held at 6:30 p.m. There were six boats
that. participated in the parade and about 150 people
who watched the course that ended at City Park.


"s enjoy 'A Cedar
Leslie Sturmer, with the University of Florida
Shellfish Extension Program, said there was a poor
turnout because the very cold and windy- weather
diminished many people's efforts to participate and
watch.
A prize was given to the best-decorated boat,
which was won by Chris Reynolds and Linda Seyfert.
Santa Clam rode the airboat at the end of the parade
and got off at City Park to visit with the children,
Sturmer said.
After the boat parade, everyone got together to
have a potluck dinner in the park before heading to
the Jingle Bell Hop '50s street dance held in front of
City Hall.
It was the first time in over 30 years that Cedar
Key has had a street dance, and since this weekend,
there have been strong requests from people wanting
it to be held more often, said Andrea Dennison, the
dance coordinator. Some people said they want to
have a street dance every month, although Dennison
said funding would not allow that.
Over 200 people showed up to the Jingle Bell Hop
to show off their moves.
"Even though it was very cold, people still came
out in droves," she said.
All the young ones learned how to do the hokey
pokey and the older crowd learned how to do the
electric slide line dance, she said.
"I don't think anybody sat down at all," she said.
"We had tables and chairs and I don't think anybody
used them all night."
"It was such a family event. We had children as
young as 3 and people as old as 83 and every age
group in between."


Christmas in Otter Creek
Santa was in Otter Creek Saturday night. His elves are working overtime, so he called
on Toys for Tots for help and they came through. Santa gave gifts to over 50 children,
and their parents were delighted that Toys for Tots could help Santa create a memo-
rable evening for all. Otter Creek council members Lila Mae Curry, Marie Murray and
Don Severino with Town Clerk Rosemary Severino were also very helpful in organizing
this function.

Local doctor on mission of mercy to AIDS victims in Ethiopia


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Dr. Robert Balbis last visited the African continent
when he was a soldier with the 82nd Airborne Division.
His new mission is quite different.,
The Chiefland family physician will be traveling to
Ethiopia in February to participate in an AIDS care and
treatment program in a country hard hit by the deadly
disease.
Balbis will stay for two weeks working with Mission
to The World, a Presbyterian Church inAmerica agency
that has partnered in an HIV/AIDS home-based care
project in Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia.
The Chiefland physician will be delivering money
and anti-viral drugs to Ethiopians that have been
diagnosed with the disease, he told the Chiefland
Rotary Club.
_ ,_ He has raised $3,000 for the trip. He said he ,is
o the Chiefland accepting donations from, anyone who would like to
help with his mission of mercy.
"Basically these people are destitute and we're

trying to get them well so they can function in society,"
he said. "This is a tremendous endeavor."
While working with the sick, he said they will be
exposed to teachings about Jesus Christ, but he said it
is low pressure and will be offered in an appropriate
manner.
Out of the 25 million people in the world who have
died of AIDS, 22 million lived in sub-Saharan Africa,
he said. Africa is home to two-thirds of the HIV positive
people in the world.
Balbis said the disease is manageable as long as the
patients are educated about the need to take all the pills
on a timely basis.
Patients are given wrist watches to keep track of
times when medication needs to be taken. Balbis said
he would accept watches or gifts of cash for the trip.
If a patient misses two pills in a day, he said the
victim will fall victim to drug resistant AIDS and
eventually die. Balbis said there is no need for people
to die of AIDS, even in sub-Saharan Africa.
"HIV is not like it was in the 80s. It's not the kiss of
death," he said.

Hollywood and Zinn's Marxist education project


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

The two most important
questions for society,
according to the Greek
philosopher Plato, are these:
What will we teach our children?
And who will teach them? Left-wing
celebrities have teamed up with one .
of America's most radical historians
to take control of the classroom in
the name of "social justice." Parents,
beware: This Hollywood-backed
Marxist education project may be .
coming to a school near you. ,
On Sunday, Dec. 13, the History
Channel will air "The People Speak" / -
-- a documentary based on Marxist ,
academic Howard Zinn's capitalism- . -
bashing, America-dissing, grievance-
mongering history textbook, "A
People's History. of the United States."
The film was co-produced and .
bankrolled by Zinn's Boston neighbor
and mentee Matt Damon. An all-star
cast of Bush-bashing liberals, including Danny Glover, Josh Brolin, Bruce
Springsteen, Marisa Tomei and Eddie Vedder, will appear. Zinn's work is a
self-proclaimed "biased account" of American history that rails against white
oppressors, the free market and the military. "
Zinn's objective is not to impart knowledge, but to instigate "change" and
nurture a political counterforcee" (an echo of fellow radical academic and
Hugo Chavez admirer Bill Ayers' proclamation of education as the "motor-
force of revolution"). Teachers are not supposed to teach facts in the school
of Zinn. "There is no such thing as pure fact," Zinn asserts. Educators are not
supposed to emphasize individual academic achievement. They are supposed to
"empower" student collectivism by emphasizing "the role of working people,
women, people of color and organized social movements." School officials are
not facilitators of intellectual inquiry, but leaders of "social struggle."
Zinn and company have launched a nationwide education project in
conjunction with the documentary. "A people's history requires a people's
pedagogy to match," Zinn preaches. The project is a collaboration between two
"social justice" activist groups, Rethinking Schools and Teaching for Change.


Rethinking Schools recently boasted of killing a social studies textbook series
in the Milwaukee school system because it "failed to teach social responsibility."
A Rethinking Schools guide on the September 11 jihadi attacks instructs teachers
to "nurture student empathy" for our enemies and dissuade students from
identifying as Americans. "It's our job to reach beyond this chauvinism." And
a Rethinking Schools guide to early childhood education written by Ann Pelo.
disparages "a too-heavy focus on academic skills" in favor of "social justice and
ecological teaching" for preschoolers.
Teaching for Change's objective, in Obama-esque fashion, is to train students
not to achieve actual proficiency in core academic subjects, but to inspire
them to "become active global citizens." Today's non-achieving aspirants are
tomorrow's Nobel Peace Prize winners, after all.
No part of the school curriculum is immune from the social justice makeover
crew. Zinn's partners at Rethinking Schools have even issued teaching guides
to "Rethinking Mathematics: Teaching Social Justice by the Numbers" -- which
rejects the traditional white male patriarchal methods of teaching computation
and statistics in favor of p.c:-ified number-crunching:
"'Rethinking Mathematics' is divided into four parts. The first part is
devoted to a broad view of mathematics that includes historical and cultural
implications. Part Two includes nine classroom narratives in which teachers
describe lessons they have used that infuse social justice issues into their
mathematics 'urriculum. Included here ... an AP calculus lesson on income
distribution. The third part contains three detailed classroom experiences/
lessons. These include a physical depiction of the inequitable distribution of
the world's wealth, the results of a student investigation into how many US.
presidents owned slaves, and a wonderful classroom game called 'Transnational
Capital Auction'in which students take on the role of leaders of Third World
countries bidding competitively for new factories from a multinational
corporation ..
"Short lessons, provocative cartoons and snippets of statistics are scattered
throughout 'Rethinking Mathematics. 'A partial list of topics includes racial
profiling, unemployment rate calculation, the war in Iraq, environmental
racism, globalization, wealth distribution and poverty, wheelchair ramps, urban
density, HIV/AIDS, deconstructing Barbie, junk food advertising to children and
lotteries. " (from a review by James V Rauff of Millikin University)
Our students will continue to come in dead last in international testing. But
no worries. With Howard Zinn and Hollywood leftists in charge, empty-headed
young global citizens will have heavier guilt, wider social, consciences and more
hatred for America than any other students in the world.

Christmas books


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate


One way to reduce the wear and tear of Christmas
shopping at the mall is to give books as presents.
Books can be bought on the Internet, and they can
be matched to the person who receives them without
having to know that person's measurements.
Dick Morris' new book -- "Catastrophe"-- is an
education in itself, on politics, on economics and
on foreign policy. It is a strong antidote to the pious
rhetoric and spin that come out of Washington and
the media. Partly this is because Dick Morris was
once a Beltway insider-- an adviser to President Bill
Clinton-- who knows first-hand the ugly realities
behind the pretty words that politicians use and that
much of the media repeat.
Morris' argument in "Catastrophe"-- whose
title tells us where he sees us headed-- is backed
up by numerous hard facts and supported by an
understanding of history and economics. Most of all,
it is supported by an understanding of politics as it is,
rather than the way it is depicted by politicians and
the media.
Dick Morris can also cut through a blizzard of
political' spin with a few plain words. In describing
Barack Obama's economic policies, Morris says
simply: "Curing the recession was not his end;
it was his means to the end. The end was bigger
government." Obama's actions often make no sense
if you believe Obama's words, but they do make
sense if you follow Dick Morris' analysis.
A revised edition of Angelo Codevilla's classic
book, "The Character of Nations," has been
published this year, and it too is an education in
itself. "The Character of Nations" is less focused on
immediate domestic political issues-- though it does
analyze the contrasting responses of the intelligentsia
to Sarah Palin and Barack Obama-- but it is focused


more on the underlying cultural . '
developments that affect how
nations work-- or don't work.
The very title of "The Character
of Nations" is a challenge to the
prevailing ideology that denies or
downplays underlying differences
among individuals, groups and
nations. There are many examples
of these differences. For example,
Professor Codevilla says: "While
it is unimaginable to do business
in China without paying bribes, to
offer one in Japan is the greatest
faux pas."
He sees the things that are
valued differently in different
cultures as the key to everything from economic
progress to personal freedom. But these values are
not set in stone-- which means that countries which
currently benefit from a given set of values can lose
those benefits when those values get lost.
Codevilla says: "The reason why inhabitants
of the First World should keep the Third world in
mind is that habits prevalent in the countries that
became known as the Third World are a set of human
possibilities that any people anywhere can adopt
at any time. As Argentina showed in the twentieth
Century, falling from the-First World to the Third can
be easy and quick."
Another revised and very valuable book is
"Choosing the Right College," published by the
Intercollegiate Studies Institute. This latest edition is
once again by far the best college guide in America.
Like many of us, it has put on weight over the years
and is now 1,084 pages long, but its weight is all
muscle.
First of all, "Choosing the Right College" asks
the right question: What is the right college for you,


S not what is the "best" college by
some formula for ranking colleges
and universities. In addition to
a very thorough examination of
the academic realities at these
institutions, it goes into the
social atmosphere, which can
make or break the whole college
experience in terms of what is
right for a particular student.
College is, after all, not just a
school but a home, for four long
years-- usually for people who
are living away from home for
S.: . the first time in their lives. Being
. in the wrong place, in terms
-. of neighbors and atmosphere,
can ruin the academic advantages of even the
best institution. This book helps match particular
students with particular places, which is what is
crucial.
My own books published this year include "The
Housing Boom and Bust," which made the New
York Times best-seller list.
Another book of mine this year was the revised
and enlarged edition of "Applied Economics,"
which has a long chapter on the economics
of medical care, including the experience of
other countries that have gone down the road to
government control of medicine. Their experience
should be a warning to us all.

Christmas is


a time for music


(good& bad) lIs

By Rick Burnham
Editor


given out at Halloween, radio stations begin playing
Christmas songs. If you like Christmas songs, this is a
good thing. If not, you start hating life.
It is a mixed bag for me - I really enjoy some of the songs and
look forward to hearing them on the radio each year, while others
make me want to drive my truck off the road and explode it into
a huge fireball. Some songs are classics, and are that way the first
time you hear them. Others make me want to drive my truck off
the bridge and sink to the bottom of the Suwannee River.
Here are my favorite 10, along with five others that make me
want to rip the radio out of the dashboard of my truck and throw
it in the Gulf of Mexico.
Worst Christmas songs
Honorable Mention: Happy X-Mas - John and Yoko.
5. My Only Wish - Brittney Spears. There are certain
elements of a good Christmas song. Brittney Spears moaning'
and groaning is not one of them. Makes you want to take a pair
of No. 2 pencils and jam them through your eardrums. Really, it
does.
4. Little Drummer Boy - Bing Crosby and David Bowie.
What do you get when you combine a classic American crooner
with a new-age British rock star? Something'extremely creepy,
that's what. Look up the word "creepy" in the dictionary and you
will see a picture of Crosby and Bowie together. I hope whoever
decided to pair these two up was fired and forced to drink sour
eggnog.
3. Santa Baby - Madonna. The only thing worse than
listening to this song would be to watch a video of Madonna
singing it. - . . -.
There was a time when Madonna was halfway attractive,
and the songs she produced were halfway tolerable. That time
was for a couple of hours in mid October, 1983. Other than that,
Madonna is perhaps the most overrated recording artist in the
history of musical recordings. Difficult to listen to, harmful to
look at. That's Madonna. Stay away from Christmas, Madonna.
2. Last Christmas - Wham! This band is perhaps the most
aptly named recording group of all time. Wham! It's the last
sound you hear when your eardrums explode while one of their
songs is playing. Wham! Your truck collides with a mighty oak
tree after you lose control trying to change th'e station. Wham!
1. Santa Claus Is Coming To Town - Bruce Springsteen
and the E Street Band. Years and years ago, an old Air Force
buddy of mine asked me to listen to a recording of his favorite
band, one that I had never heard of. "They are great, the best out
there," he said. I listened to it, and threw up in my mouth.
Bruce Springsteen hurts my ears. His voice is horrible. He
basically shouts out the lyrics.
"It's not his singing voice," my friend reasoned. "It is his
passion and energy."
I don't listen to music for passion and energy. I listen for
voice quality. And to hear Bruce Springsteen massacre a sacred
children's classic hurts in more ways than one. The worst.
Best Christmas Songs
Honorable mention: Rockin Round the Christmas Tree.
- Brenda Lee
10. Oh Holy Night - Josh Groban. I am not a big fan of
Groban or his music, but this is one of those instances where the
artist seems perfect for the song. Classic voice, classic song.
9. Let It Snow - Dean Martin. All of those old Rat Pack
guys were cool, but Dean may have been coolest. He was
definitely mellowest, due in large part to a severe drinking
problem. Regardless of his personal issues, his version of this
song is one of the best ever.
8. The Most Wonderful Time of the Year - Johnny Mathis.
It always sounded to me like someone was shaking Johnny '
Mathis whenever he sang a song. This one is no different. It
doesn't hurt that this song makes you want to frolic as you listen
to it, if that is your kind of thing. It works, and works well.
7. Please Come Home for Christmas - The Eagles. My
favorite band of all time only has one Christmas song to my
knowledge. It is this one, and it utilizes Don Henley's unique
rocker voice to perfection.
6. Where Are You Christmas - Faith Hill. Years from now
they will be speaking of this song as one of the all-time classics,
sung by a beautiful woman with a stunning voice. She's the polar
opposite of Madonna, when you think about it.
5. This Christmas - Joe. Hardly a classic, in the ... um ...
classical sense of the word, this R&B single combines simple
lyrics with strong, smooth voices.
4. White Christmas - Bing Crosby. Bing makes both lists,
good and bad. I remember watching his Christmas specials
before he died, and he seemed to me the epitome of style and
substance. An American icon singing a traditional song. Strong
combination.
3. Holly Jolly Christmas - Burl Ives. Festive and fun-
filled. I cannot remember a single other thing that Burl Ives
was a part of, although I know there must have been dozens of
movies in which he played a prominent part. His unique voice is
unforgettable. And a chorus of ding-dongers in the background
only adds to the overall effect.
2. A Merry Little Christmas - Frank Sinatra. They called
this guy the Chairman of the Board for good reason. A simple
yet commanding voice. If old Blue Eyes was still around we
probably wouldn't have half the problems we have now. He'd
just show up and sing something and the problems would go
away.
1. The Christmas Song - Nat King Cole. Smooth.
Traditional. Stylish. This version of the song has it all, and is
unquestionably one of the most time-honored holiday songs
of all time. It is tops, and hearing it during the first week of
November means that the radio stations think Christmas is right
around the corner.

Staff Writer.


ate last year I bought my first new Bible.
I purchased the King James Reference
Bible with "giant" print from the Praise
Shop in Chiefland. It may have been
one of my best purchases ever. I had been given
a Bible at my church confirmation when I was
in high school. Somehow I lost it with all the
moves I've made over the years. I have owned
other Bibles.
The giant print isn't really all that big. It's
not much bigger than the print you see in this
newspaper, but it is more comfortable to read
than the standard small print Bibles in my
opinion. The words of Jesus are in red print. The
Bible is the modern King James edition with no
thee or thou words. It is easy to read.
I enjoy turning at random to scripture in the
New Testament to read the teachings of Jesus.
They are powerful words with deep spiritual
meaning for me.
All churches have their official teachings
about Jesus. The teachings don't vary all that
much. At Christmas we celebrate his birth.
There is no disagreement about that fact. Angels
rejoiced at his birth. The angels knew the Christ
Child was holy and sent by God.
The book of Matthew tells its when Jesus was
born three wise men came from the East to see
him. They followed a star in the sky to Jerusalem.
Matthew tells us when the Roman King Herod
.heard of Jesus' birth he called the chief priests
and scribes together. He demanded to know
where he could find the baby born King of the
Jews. He was told Bethlehem. He called the wise
men to him and sent them to Bethlehem. He told
them to find the baby, and when they did, to tell
him. He wished to worship the child too. He real
intent was to kill Jesus. Matthew 2: 9-12 states,
"When they had heard the king, they departed,
and low the star, which they saw in the east, went
before them, till it came and stood over where the
child was. When they saw the star they rejoiced
with exceeding great joy.
And when they were come into the house they
saw the young child with Mary his mother, and
fell down, and worshipped him: and when they
had opened their treasures, they presented unto
him gifts; gold, frankincense and myrrh. And
being warned of God in a dream that they should
not return to Herod, they departed into their own
country another way."
I have always been curious about the wise
men. They were grown men when Jesus was
born in Bethlehem. They came from the East.
That is all we know. I decided to surf the internet
to see if 1 could find an explanation. I found a
site published by the Church of Iran. If you go
to the Christian church site you can click on the
words WiseMen and learn something about what
Iranian Christians say about the Magi.
The web site says the wise men (magi)
were from ancient Persia (Iran). Their names
were Balthasar, Melchior and Caspar. They
were thought to be priests of the Zarathustra
religion, the mages. The internet site notes that
the pilgrimage to Bethlehem to see the newborn
baby Jesus had some religious significance for
these men or they would not have taken the
trouble and risk of traveling so far.
The same internet site also gives a more
specific definition of Magi, saying they wire the


priestly caste of ancient Persia. They are thought
to have been followers of Zoroaster, the Persian
teacher and prophet, and they professed the
doctrines of Zoroastrianism. By the 1st Century
A.D, the magi were identified with wise men
and soothsayers, according to the web site.
A writer on the same web site, Lwis Williams,
offers this description of what he calls "the Holy
Epiphany." His writings are contained in the
quotation marks below.
"While often times conflicting lore muddles
the story of the Magi, those bearing gifts for
the Christ child are Caspar of Tarsus, Melchior
of Persian and Blathasar of Saba. Weary from
desert travel, the Magi humbly offer their gifts.
Caspar is young, European and offers gold. Gold
finances the Holy Family's coming flight to
Egypt and also symbolizes Christ's immortality
and purity. For his generosity, Caspar receives
the gifts of charity and spiritual wealth. Melchior
is middle aged, Persian and offers myrrh. Myrrh
is a fragrant gum, which the ancient Israelites
believed to strengthen children. This symbol
of Christ's mortality was blended with wine
and offered to him on the cross, and also mixed
with aloes to wrap his body for the tomb.
Melchior receives the gifts of humility and
truth. Balthasar is elderly, Ethiopian and offers
frankincense. Frankincense is a resin used in
incense for worship and also symbolizes prayer
and sacrifice. Balthasar receives the gift of
faith. And Christ, humbling himself to become
man, offers the greatest gift of all, the light that
forever bums in darkness."
The internet site also gives another description
of the wise men from the Encarta Concise
Encyclopedia. The description is listed below in
quotation marks.
"Wise Men of the East, also called Magi, or
Three kings of the Orient. In Matthew, noble
pilgrims followed a star to Israel to pay homage
to the newborn Christ Child. They asked King
Herod the Great for assistance in finding the
child. Herod could not help but asked the men to
return with news of the child. Warned in a dream,
they did not return to Herod." Encarta Concise
Encylcopedia - Religion and Philosophy.
,,Whatever you believe about the wise men,
they were a fascinating trio. They somehow
knew about the holy birth and took great pains
to travel across the desert to see the newborn
Christ Child. Their story has always intrigued
me because we know the wise men were real, but
we don't know much about them. My belief is
that they recognized that the newborn had been
sent by God to take human form on this planet
and that his holiness and spiritual purity were
unrivaled in the history of mankind. We know
they wanted to see him just to be in his presence
and offer gifts. They almost certainly knew that
seeing the Christ Child and experiencing his
powerful spirituality would be a remarkable
experience. There is no doubt they saw their
visit as fulfilling prophecy. I am certain they
also knew they were receiving a blessing of
unimaginable proportions simply by being in
the presence of the newborn Jesus.
My sincere wish is that you all experience
the presence of Jesus Christ over the Christmas
holiday. Make your pilgrimage to the church of
your choice if you are so inclined.
May God bless you and your family in the
coming days, weeks and years.
Merry Christmas!


The Wise Men were among first to


experience holiness of Christ Child

MERRY CHRISTMAS FROM


THE ONE WHO HUNG THE STARS


My family used to have this crazy Christmas
tradition of hanging a big blue star atop the triangular
steel TV antenna that towered 40 foot above my
grandpa's roof. Once lit, the
star could be seen from miles
around. It was the talk of Shaw,
Mississippi.
Come every December I'd
watch with envy as my Uncle
Joey scampered up the tower and
duct taped it into place. I wanted
to do it so bad, but my Papa
would always wrinkle his Italian
brows, "Nooo... You'll break-a
your neck-a der boy!"
I was a young teen before my ', .
uncle finally went off to college
and left the chore to me. The |
whole family came out to watch,
as usual. I sniffed confidently, -But- Anyi
hitched up my pants, and heaved Wth '
that heavy welded steel star over
my shoulder. I'd made it only a.
few feet above the roof when I stopped to ponder
a startling new discovery, something not readily
noticed from the ground. I WAS AFRAID OF
HEIGHTS!!
"Keep-a going der boy," my Papa yelled, but it
was too late. I'd lost my nerve. I slunk back down
with my tail between my legs.
For the next few years my little brother Heath
courageously mounted that blue star. He became
the family hero. Me... well, I hung my head and
conveniently made excuses to be elsewhere while


he preformed the daring deed.
Mercifully, the day finally came when we both
had grown too heavy to reasonably be expected to
climb that pole safely. I'm sure
Heath was just as relieved as I.
For the next decade the old blue
star laid in moth balls. Shaw just
wasn't the same.
I'd conveniently forgotten
about the star until one day
I accidentally came across it
rummaging through Papa's barn.
Just seeing it hit me like a slap in
the face. Was I still going to let a
little fear keep me from attaining
the great heights to which I was
, .called? After all, I was a man
now, married with a kid on the
way.
ray.�. I drug the star out and started
3Y beffie up the pole. Papa must've thought
Santa's sleigh had landed on his
house when my 220 pounds hit
the roof.
"Nooo...," he cried, rushing out.."You'll break-a
your neck-a der boy!"
That antenna was swaying like crazy, but I just
kept my focus and pressed on, one rung at a time.
After some pretty harrowing moments, and some
aerial acrobatics that nearly brought a halt to the
traffic on the 61 highway, I finally taped the star to
the top and scooted back down to gloat.
Papa's furrowed his brows, "But it ain't Christmas
yet der boy!"


What's my point? I don't know... but if I'd
been willing to attempt something so totally void
of common sense just to display my own feeble
courage, how much more confidence should I have
now that God is on my team?
I mean, come on. Let's get the true Christmas
spirit here. To us was born Emmanuel! (Behold, a
virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a
son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which
being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23
KJV) Surely if we've got the One who hung the
whole universe full of blue stars at our side we can
overcome any obstacles that lay between us and our
destiny! Put your trust in Him.
Of course, I feel like I should take a moment
and give some kind of official disclaimer to all you
testosterone monkeys like me who'll want to run
out and climb all over God's nerves by tempting the
Lord your God with some fool act.
"DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME!"
Please make sure you hear from the Lord before
ever even contemplating any hair-brained notions
to the likes of this. You see, the next spring that
rusty antenna collapsed. I could've been killed... or
worse, sued by kinfolk!
But anyway- That old star is safely tucked away
up in my own attic nowadays. But don't worry; it no
longer presents a danger. I've got cable.
Merry Christmas!!!

Manatees draw excitement at Manatee, Fanning Springs parks


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

At the end of the boardwalk in Manatee Springs
State Park Sunday, there was considerable excitement
when visitors saw manatees resting at the bottom of the
spring run at the edge of the Suwannee River.
The sighting of a manatee always draws a crowd in
the park.
The park visitors could only see their noses pop out
of the water, but it was enough to generate a commotion
on the boardwalk as people talked, pointed and stared
through binoculars at the animals.
Such sightings are common at this time of year at
Manatee and Fanning Springs State Parks because
manatees travel to the springs to find warm water during
cold winter days. They leave the colder Suwannee
River to warm up in the springs.
Word soon spread among the visitors on the
boardwalk that a manatee mother and calf were resting
comfortably on the bottom of the spring run at Fanning
Springs State Park 10 miles away and were easier to
see. A Journal reporter headed there with a camera
along with Keith and Noni Howard of Destin.
The mother and calf at Fanning Springs were in clear
view. It was the first time the Howards had ever seen a
manatee. They snapped photos and moved around for
the best view.
The huge manatee female and her calf at Fanning
Springs swam silently beneath the feet of the Howards
as they passed under the dock on which the couple was
standing.
"That was awesome," Keith Howard said.

Before the manatee cow and calf moved to the
swimming hole, a kayaker and her dog had floated
quietly to a spot very close to the two animals. The
manatees were spooked by her presence and moved to
a different location about 75 feet away. A few minutes
later they moved to the swimming hole where they
were alone in the warm spring water. The water in
Florida's springs is a constant 72 degrees, warmer than
river water at this time of year.
Many people are thrilled to see a manatee. Kayakers
and canoeists often try to get close to them for photos
or just to see them, but if manatees are forced to move
because of human activity it is considered harassment
and is illegal.
"Anything you do that alters their behavior is
considered harassment," said Manatee and Fanning
Springs State Parks Manager Sally Lieb.
Manatees remain an endangered species under the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's
imperiled species rules. FWC was criticized when
it proposed changing the status of manatees from
threatened to endangered.
FWC is rewriting the rules governing how species
receive their listing status. The new rule is intended
to offer clearer guidance on how the agency arrives
at a particular -designation. With regard to manatees,
agency officials believe manatee advocates focused too
much on the word "threatened," believing it offered
less protection than endangered, according to FWC
spokeswoman Patricia Behnke.
"We don't want people concentrating only on the
name," she said. "The threatened listing (for manatees)
actually offers more protections in the management

plan."
Biologists with the FWC and Florida Fish and
Wildlife Institute documented 419 manatee deaths
through Dec. 11, a state record. The previous record
was 416 in 2006.
Manatee Springs State Park attracts manatees all
year, but the largest number can be seen in the cooler
months when the animals seek warm water. In 2008 the
park reported 744 manatees in the park's spring run.
The number dropped to 271 as of November 2009, in
part due to flooding on the Suwannee River in April.
The darker flood water made them difficult to count.
Park rangers at Fanning Springs reported 421 manatees
in 2008 and 191 thus far in 2009.

Williston advances to Kiwanis title game


Huge second quarter rally

shocks Ga's defending champs


By Rick Burnham
Editor


Looks can be deceiving.
When defending Georgia state
champion Camden County looked up
at the scoreboard in Monday's matchup
against Williston and saw a 16-16 first
quarter tie, they had to feel pretty good
about themselves.
Twelve minutes later, however,
Williston (8-0) had taken a 45-26 lead into
the half, having completely devastated
their opponents from the north in the
second quarter.
The big outburst lifted the Red Devils
into Tuesday's championship game of the
annual Kiwannis Christmas Tournament,
played at Bradford County High School
in Starke.
Fifteen different Williston players
scored points in the game, and nine
of those scored points in the 29-point
second quarter. Paul King and Kelcey
Coleman picked up five apiece in the
second quarter, while Tony James and
James Hunt each picked up four points
in the period.
Isaac Floyd led his team with 12 points
in the game, all coming in the second
half. King added 10, while Coleman
picked up nine and Deterion Ross eight.
Jayson Solomon picked up 19 for the
Wildcats (0-2) in the game, but managed
only two of those in the decisive second
quarter. Shaquan Brock added 12 and
Sterem Murphy picked up 10.
Camden County, Georgia's 5A
champion in 2008, stayed with Williston
in the first quarter behind six points
from Solomon and another four from

Brock. Williston countered with three
points from Coleman, Ross and Raheem
Mentor, and two more from Hunt, James
and Deonte Welch.
Camden County rebounded with 22
points in the third quarter, but Williston
kept pace with 21 of their own. Floyd got
loose for eight in the period, most coming
on short jumpers in the paint. Ross added
another five in the third quarter.
Solomon led Camden County in the
third quarter with seven, while Brock
picked up six and Jamal Register five.
Williston coasted to the win with 18
points in the fourth. King added five
points in the period, while Floyd and
Jawantis Collins scored four apiece.

Bronson girls competitive


in loss to visiting Oak Hall


Sara Shouse kicks the ball through a gap in the Oak Hall
defense during the first half of play.


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Bronson's girls' soccer team lost 3-0 to
Oak Hall last week, a disappointment for
the girls, but the coaches felt the girls were
competitive.
Oak Hall scored all of its goals in the
second half, primarily by taking advantage of
mistakes by the Lady Eagles from Bronson.
Oak Hall came into the match with 10
players instead of 11. Bronson coaches
decided not to take advantage of the
shorthanded Oak Hall team. The Lady Eagles
also played with 10 on the field.
Assistant Coach Wally Lake said they
didn't want to win by defeating a shorthanded
team.
Lake told the girls afterward that they
seemed to lose their energy in the second
half. They stopped talking to one another,
a key element in soccer games. Everyone
communicates on the field of play, including
the goalie during soccer games. They were
not as aggressive.


But Lake and Coach Raymond Powers
said the team is still learning the game. The
girls' soccer program at BHS is just three
years old. It has had a few ups and downs.
Lake complimented the girls on playing Oak
Hall head to head.
"We've had a lot of shutouts against
powerhouse teams. When we can go the full
80 minutes and its 3-0, we're competing,"
said Lake.
He also commended goalie April Benca
on her double save in the first half. Oak Hall
got a chance at an open shot at the net. But
Benca charged the player dribbling the ball
directly toward her and blocked the shot.
Oak Hall got a second shot seconds later
that Benca also blocked before retrieving the
ball.
Lake said the team has many good
athletes, but half the players are middle
school age. The Lady Eagles will be losing
a core of senior players in 2010, which will
lead to a rebuilding year.

Lake Butler shocks Braves on late 3-pointer


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

It was not a game for the faint at heart.
Chiefland Middle School's boys' basketball game against
Lake Butler at CMS Dec. 17 was passionate and heated from
the opening tip, with both teams enjoying early leads, and
each suffering through late deficits.
Lake Butler got the last laugh when guard Alphonso
Butler's three-pointer from the left flank found the bottom
of the basket with six seconds left, giving the Tigers a 48-
46 win, and sending a large contingent from Union County
into delirium. The Braves had taken a 46-45 advantage when
Deshawn Roland grabbed an offensive rebound and put it
back up with less than a minute left.
Lake Butler actually took a 45-40 lead with 3:55 left when
David Altman sank a three-point shot from the right corner.
But Chiefland fought back, getting a pair of free throws and a
layup from Josh Smith to make it 45-44.
Chiefland took the initial lead of the game on a three-point
shot by Kyle Weeks, putting the Braves up 3-0. Lake Butler
responded with a long-distance shot of their own, by Bobby
Oliver to tie it at three apiece. Lake Butler later went up 9-5
on a trio of shots by John Dendy, the third a soft, 10-footer
from the left flank.
Cheifland responded with a flurry of their own, scoring the
next 10 points of the game to go up 15-9 at the end of the first
quarter. Shaquille Patterson accounted for half of tose, while


L MM-' mra ak .m W I I
John Dendy and Kyle Weeks (right) watch a free throw.
Weeks converted two layups and Smith a free throw.
The Braves extended their lead to 19-9 on a pair of shots
by Khai-Sun Sims early in the second quarter, but the lead
did not last long. Lake Butler fought back behind balanced
scoring - five different players scored points in the remainder
of the quarter as the Tigers got to within 24-22 at the half.
Chiefland led for most of the second half, but fell behind
35-34 when Dendy made a layup following a fast break that
began on a steal. Chiefland came right back with a three-point
play by Roland to go up 37-35, but Blanton tied the game at
37 on a layup at the end of the third quarter.
Chiefland travels to Williston Jan. 5, and then returns home
to face Bronson Jan. 7 and Ft. White Jan. 11. They travel to
Lake Butler Jan. 12.

CMS declaws Lady Tigers-


Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

To beat the Chiefland Middle School
girls' basketball team, you have to show
up for all four quarters. And you have to
stop Brittany Gilliam. Lake Butler did
neither of those things Dec. 17, and it
cost them dearly.
The Lady Braves got 15 points from
Gilliam - more than half in a runaway
second period - en route to a 31-22 win
at the CMS gymnasium.
A large crowd watched the two teams
jockey for position during a slow-paced
first quarter. Lake Butler took a 2-0
lead when Kiambre Cobb took a steal
the length of the court and scored on
a layup. Gilliam came right back with
a basket following an assist from Kali
Morrell to tie it at two apiece.
Lake Butler bounced back with a 12-
foot shot by Ericka Griffis, but Curtesha
Young hit a pair of foul shots to tie it
again.
Chiefland took control of the game
in the second quarter, and Gilliam led
the way. With her team down 6-4, the
lanky eighth grader made a layup with
5:30 left in the half. She would add two
more layups and a 10-foot jumper in the
quarter as the Lady Braves took a 16-8
halftime lead.
Nancy Slocum scored four points in
the second quarter, while Chiefland's
Young and Anita Hughes scored two
apiece.
The Lady Braves extended their lead
to nine by the end of the third quarter,
and four players' contributed to the
barrage. Young went coast-to-coast for
a layup to get the period off on the right
foot. Gilliam scored four points on two
free. throws and a layup, and Morrell

connected on a five-footer. Hughes
converted one of two free throws.
Lake Butler scored eight in the
period on baskets by four different
players - Slocum, Cobb, January Jones
and Aaliryah Feltner. Chiefland led 25-
16 at the end of three.
They would maintain that advantage
for the rest of the game, scoring another
six points in the final quarter. Young got
four of those - on a baseline jumper and
a layup following a pass from Gilliam.
Morrell scored the other two on a
layup.
Chiefland improved to 7-2 with the
win, while Lake Butler fell to 2-6 with
the loss.

Bronson, from Page 14


"We aspire to be like the powerhouse
teams, but we don't have the same size
talent pool," Lake said.
Powers said he told the girls that
powerhouse teams like P.K. Yonge have
girls who have played League soccer
since they were 5 years old. The girls
play all summer in organized ball.


Bronson has a ways to go before
it becomes a powerhouse team, but
Powers said it will continue to build and
improve because the team is composed
of quality girls who work hard.
"They've got a good heart. They try
hard and they're good kids," Powers
said.
