About 100 people gathered with
candles in front of Williston High
School Tuesday night to honor the
memory of two 17-year-
old students who died in a
car accident in Dunnellon
early Sunday morning.
Tiffany Oliver of
Williston, and Marqui
Cook of Morriston, were
pronounced, dead at the
scene of the accident that .
tookplaceonU.S. Highway
41 near Dunnellon around
2:56 Sunday morning.
Another passenger, Nikole C(
Brown, 15, of Morriston,
was airlifted to St. Joseph's
Hospital in Tampa after
being extricated by fire
rescue. Brown was listed as
being in serious condition.
According to the Florida
Highway Patrol's report,
Oliver was the driver of
a 2000 Chevrolet pickup,
driving northbound on U.S.
Highway 41 south of N.W. OI
13th Street near Dunnellon
when she lost control attempting to
round a lefthand curve.
The vehicle veered into the
southbound lanes when Oliver over-
steered to the left, according to the
release. She then over-corrected to
the right, causing the pickup truck to


0


spin clockwise onto the east grassy
shoulder.
The truck was just beginning to flip
when the left front of the vehicle hit a
tree, the report stated.
Oliver and Cook were ejected when
the vehicle ran into a
second tree, according to
the report. The vehicle
came to rest on its left
side on the shoulder.
Brown was trapped in
the truck until a Marion
County fire rescue team
was able to extricate her
and have her airlifted to
the hospital. As of press
time, Brown was said to
)ok have' suffered numerous
broken bones and a
collapsed lung, but was
expected to make a full
recovery.
According to
Florida Highway Patrol
investigation,, none of the
teenagers was wearing a
- ^ seatbelt during the time
of the accident.
Cook leaves behind a
2-and-a-half-month-bld
baby girl named Mylie,
who is in the care of the father, Cook's
fiance, Caleb Medeiros.
The candlelight vigil was held at
the school to help some of the students
and members of the community deal

School board discusses pros of new software


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Levy County school workers have a good reason to
look skyward in 2010.
The School Board of Levy County will activate
Skyward, a data management system that will help
keep all data organized in one place, beginning in
January.
The school board signed on with Skyward in June
and will begin the process of getting all information
transferred in January, starting with human resource
and finance data, School Board of Levy County
Director of Finance Bob Clemons said at the school
board's Dec. 22 public meeting.
Through the North East Florida Educational
Consortium, the system costs $3.2 million and the
School Board of Levy County will be responsible for
$425,000, Clemons said.
"We're really getting a Cadillac when all we paid
for was a Volkswagen," he said.
Three visitors from NEFEC spoke to school board
members and the audience during the meeting to
express why Skyward is a better alternative.
The current system has been in place since the


early '80s, said Candy Garcia, NEFEC information
technology director.
He said when NEFEC began looking into getting
a new system, there were four things they wanted to
take into consideration:
The new system should be fully integrated,
meaning it should handle the student and business
sides of managing a school system.fi
The system should replace some of the third-party
applications that are currently managing such things
as the grade books and food service.
Parents should be able have access online to see
their child's grades, attendance, etc.
And the system should also meet the demands on
the instructional side.
Skyward seemed to be the perfect answer for a
number of reasons, said Phil Heliman, the NEFEC
administrator who presented information to the
board about the Skyward core-based business suite
package.
Skyward is exclusively for K-12, large and small
school districts, which means the company's vested
interest is in making their product useful for schools'
operations, Heliman said.
Skyward has a centralized database so the


information only needs to be entered once, he said.
Other pros of Skyward: The company serves over
1,300 customers and 3.3 million students and has a
98.2 percent customer retention rate, which means
when people buy their software, almost all like it and
keep it, he said.
Heliman also presented how Skyward will benefit
the business side of the school board, keeping track of
the general ledger, accounts payable, direct deposit,
budget management, payroll, purchasing, time off and
more.
The business suite will "go live" in January,
Clemons said; however, the "Student Management
Suite" will be added in July.
Daniel Hornsby, NEFEC SIS applications
coordinator, discussed how the student management
suite will allow administration, teachers, students
and parents to access and process information on
attendance, grading/transcripts, Sunshine State
Standards, graduation requirements, textbook
tracking, gradebooks and more.
School Board Superintendent Bob Hastings said it
is impressive the amount of work Skyward can do.
"It certainly is an eye-opener to a lot of people all
the things this system can do," he said.

LIVE OAK -- Starting Jan.
6, all homeowners and others
within the Suwannee River
Water Management District
will be asked to limit landscape
irrigation to one or two days
per' week, depending upon the
time of the year.
For the first time ever, the
district is implementing a
year-round water conservation
rule that applies to residential
landscaping, public or
commercial recreation areas,
and public and commercial
businesses that aren't regulated
by a district-issued permit.
In the past, the district
has enacted only short-
term voluntary restrictions
in response to drought
conditions.
Jon Dinges, the district's
director of resource
management, said the new
requirement will help address
water needs within the district.
"Water supply is a statewide


issue," Dinges said. "We all
must do our part to conserve."
Unlike other areas of
the state where irrigation
schedules are set according
to addresses, water users in
the SRWMD will be allowed
.to set their own schedules
as follows: Choose one day
per week to water landscapes
during Eastern Standard Time,
which begins the first Sunday
in November; choose two
days per week during Daylight
Savings Time, beginning the
second Sunday in March. In
both cases, irrigation should
not occur between 10 a.m. and
4 p.m.
Newly planted landscapes
may be watered more
frequently for 60 days
following planting.
"Reducing landscape
irrigation and watering more
efficiently helps us makes
the most of our resources and
it reduces irrigation costs,"


Dinges said.
Those who wish to deviate
from the water conservation
rule must apply for a water use
permit.
The requirement is part of
the district's new water use
permitting rules.
In addition to water
conservation for landscape
irrigation, the new rules
require anyone applying for a
water use permit to implement
a water conservation plan.
Dinges said only new permit
applicants are required to adopt
a conservation plan; existing
permit holders must adhere to
their current permits.
The new water use rules
will be posted on the district's
website as of Jan. 6. Go to
www.mysuwanneeriver.com/

40B-2. For more information
contact Linda Welch, rules
coordinator, at (386) 362-
1001.

Construction

on U.S. 19

set to begin

A Florida Department of
Transportation project along
11 miles of U.S. 19 in southern
Levy County is scheduled to
begin Monday. The project
will include resurfacing
the roadway, adding paved
shoulders and extending
drainage structures.
The project, which begins
at Southeast Fourth Street in
Chiefland and ends just south
of S.R. 24 in Otter Creek, is
designed to increase the safety
and decrease the number
of crashes on this stretch of
roadway. The improvements
include removing the old
pavement and replacing it
with new asphalt, adding five-
foot paved shoulders along
the outside lane and two-foot
paved shoulders along the
inside lane.
During construction, U.S.
19 may be reduced to one lane
in either direction.

'Walk to Bethlehem' shares

true meaning of Christmas. r%
Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor -


For the fifth Christmas, Mary and
Joseph's trip to Bethlehem has come
alive in Morriston.
.When the Fields' family moved
to Morriston from Ft. Lauderdale and
began the Living Water Life Center,
they decided to use their 20 acres to
spread a little holiday cheer for the
community at Christmas time.
Dana Fields, the pastor of the church,
and his wife, Callie, created a path
that used an interpretation of the trip
to Bethlehem Mary and Joseph made
when Jesus was born. The journey
was said to have taken 12 days, so the
Fields set up a trail with 12 stops along
the way representing different cities the
couple may have visited.
The narrated walk was held every
night Dec. 9-23 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
with a total of over 500 visitors, Dana
Fields said.
There was also a "Winter
Wonderland" section with lights, a
lighted maze, blow-up decorations and
more. For visitors waiting for a tour,
there were several tents decorated with
different themes like angels, toyland,
trains, a salute to the military, a children's
activity tent, and a concession stand
with free popcorn and hot chocolate.
Santa was usually on hand to visit with
the children and there was also a Santa's

tor, speaks to Mary and Joseph

sleigh ride to entertain.
Fields said this free event is his
family's gift to the community.
"It was an offering of the community
to remember the fun of Christmas with
the lights and all but also to remember
the birth of Jesus we're celebrating and
what he meant to us," he said.


Moonlight Paddle
Temperatures in the 40s didn't detract from a perfect sunset and the
beautiful full moon paddlers experienced at Manatee Springs State
Park's "Moonlight Paddle" Monday night. About 25 people launched
from the springs at sunset and paddled about a mile upriver. When
the sun went down, the full moon helped guide the group back to
the starting point, where a campfire, hot chocolate or coffee and
cookies were waiting to warm them. Park Ranger Tommy Pavao
said he was inspired to coordinate the event after taking a walk on
the park's boardwalk one night and seeing how beautiful it was on
the river at night. The park will be hosting another moonlight paddle
during the full moon in February. (Anna Suggs)

Man threatens deputy's children after fleeing


* A Levy sheriff's deputy is in fear for the safety
of his children after a Williston man fled and then
surrendered to police, according to the police report.
Richard Corbin, 44, 50 N.E. 1651 Terrace,
Williston, was arrested at 5:07 p.m., Dec. 23, after
Deputy Marshall Smith and a probation officer went
to Corbin's residence to execute a warrant. When
they arrived, Smith said a white male took off through
the backyard. The officers chased him for about 75
yards until the man stopped, put his hands up and
surrendered.
Smith's report stated that while being arrested,
Corbin asked if he could take pain medication. When
he was refused, he said he would have to be dragged
to the patrol car but was then walked to the walk
without being dragged.
While en route to the jail, Corbin began asking
Smith about his children and when at the jail he
stated, "This is the last Christmas with my mother
and I am not going to be able to spend it with her,
now I am going to hunt your family down and kill
your kids," according to Smith's report.
Corbin was arrested on a Polk County warrant for
violation of probation - sale of morphine, corruption
by threat, and resisting without violence. No bond.

Levy sheriff's office honors officers of the year


The Levy County Sheriffs Office
presented its annual Officer of the
Year awards Dec.16 at its Christmas
Luncheon.
Sheriff Smith said this is always a

has such a large pool of professional
talent that it's hard to focus on the
highlights of just one employee. But
all three of these people step up to the


plate on a day-in and day-out basis
and deserve to be recognized, he said.
Here is what was said
about those recognized:

Nanny state gone wild: defining dependency up


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate
m he greatest gifts you can give your children
can't be boxed and bowed. Consider
the timeless gift of
self-sufficiency -- a
stubborn thirst to leave the nest,
make it on your own and live as
a free-willed adult. It's a concept
that Big Nanny Democrats are
sabotaging at every legislative
turn.
Several times during the
sneaky debate on the government
health care takeover bill this
past Sunday, Democrats hailed
a provision requiring insurance
plans that cover dependents to
provide benefits to children up /
to age 26. Democratic Sens. Ben
Cardin and Tom Harkin both .
specifically championed the
unfunded mandate in their floor
statements.
This manifestation of the
Nanny State is especially .
galling given the massive'
levels of generational theft the Democratic majority
has presided over this past year. If they truly cared
about the physical and financial well-being of
young Americans, they'd stop piling on expensive
regulations that simply put affordable health insurance
out of their reach.
I propose a new symbol for the Democrats. Out:
donkey. In: a giant adult pacifier.
I can tell you what most fiscally responsible parents
are thinking when they hear the feds "taking care" of


everyone else's adult "children" by confiscating their
tax dollars and forcing private companies to comply:
You've got to be kidding me. Yes, Virginia, there are
still some of us left who believe our children shouldn't
depend on a government-manufactured umbilical
cord as they approach their third
decade on earth.
Nonetheless, there are now
an estimated 20 states that
have already passed legislation
requiring insurers to cover adult
children. The slacker mandates
cover "kids" ranging in age
from 24 to 31. And it's these
government health care mandates
that are driving up the cost of
.insurance.
Health policy researcher
/ " Nathan Benefield of the
Commonwealth Foundation
1. ,. reported that in New Jersey,
� i _Nanny State peddlers claimed
the adult kiddie protection law
would help 100,000 uninsured
young adults. "Yet in two years,
only 6 percent of that estimate has
' " been realized. The primary reason
-- health insurance is still too
expensive."
Wisconsin has experienced similar results.
"Whenever you insure somebody whom you didn't
insure before there's some additional risk," insurance
expert James Mueller told the Milwaukee Sentinel
Journal. Mueller points to the premium increases
that have followed coverage mandates on employer-
sponsored plans. "The problem, with all these good
ideas is there's funding necessary," Mueller said. In
Wisconsin, not only are adult children covered, but


also the children of those "children" if they live in
single-parent honies.
As he rammed through this mandate and the
mountain of other government regulations buried
in Demcare, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid
promised on Sunday: "We are reshaping the nation.
That's what we want to do."
Indeed, this defining dependency up phenomenon
is part of the larger push for single-payer-by-proxy.
The other universal health,care Trojan horse signed
into law this year -- the expansion of SCHIP (the State
Children's Health Insurance Program) -- welcomed
more non-"children" into the government insurance
fold.
Both political parties have advocated federal
waivers to use SCHIP funds for adults, including
parents of Medicaid/SCHIP children, caretaker
relatives, legal guardians and childless adults.
According to the General Accounting Office, SCHIP-
funded expenditures on adults nationwide "totaled
about $674 million in 2006." J.P. Wieske of the
Council for Affordable Health Insurance notes that the
bennies provide an incentive for parents to drop their.
private coverage in order to take advantage of free or
discounted health insurance for their children. "It has
become a program for the middle class at the expense
of the poor."
This is the engine that will power the Demcare
architects' most naked, radical ambitions: "Health
care as an inalienable right," as Sen. Harkin put it.
How? By breeding a massive permanent culture
of dependency and bottomless debt in the name of
the "children" from birth through quarter-life -- and
beyond.

Letters to

the Editor

In support of

Sammy Yearty

While you are enjoying your
busy Christmas holidays, I hope
you will take a moment to say a
prayer for Sammy Yearty and the
Yearty family. If you look back
at the many good things Sammy
has done for Levy County, you
will come to understand that
he is one of those rare human
beings who has deep compassion
and understanding for those
around him. When the inmates of
Lancaster Correctional Institution
were building the Levy County
Quilt Museum, Sammy was
always ready to lend support and
contribute whatever was'needed.
I pray every day that the Lord
will look down on Sammy and help
him through these hard times. The
people of Levy County need him.
Winnelle M. Horne
Chiefland


I am writing to show my support
for my good friend, Sammy Yearty.
I have known Sammy, his father and
mother, and his family for more than
60 years. I watched him grow up
and was pleased 30 years ago when
he turned to serving Levy County
government just as his father had.
More and more, public service is not
an easy path for one to choose.
When Sammy brought
transportation for disadvantaged
persons like myself to Levy County,
I agreed to serve on the committee
with him. The program has been
very successful and has opened
many doors for disabled persons.
Sammy and his wife helped
promote the Levy County Archives
Committee when we wanted to
publish the history of Levy County.
If it had not been for Sammy's
efforts, Levy County would not have
their own county library system,
saving thousands of dollars and
providing new literacy opportunities
for local residents.
Not only does Sammy talk the
talk, but he walks the walk. In all the
years I have lived in Levy County, I
have not known anyone who cares
more about this county and its
people.

S science is one of the great
achievements of the human
mind and the biggest reason
why we live not only longer
but more vigorously in our old age,
in addition to all the ways in which it
provides us with things that make life
easier and more enjoyable.
Like anything valuable, science
has been seized upon by politicians
and ideologues, and used to forward
their own agendas. This started long
ago, as far back as the 18th century,
when the Marquis de Condorcet
coined the term "social science" to . - .
describe various theories he favored.
In the 19th century, Karl Marx and
Friedrich Engels distinguished their
own brand of socialism as "scientific
socialism." By the 20th century, all
sorts of notions wrapped themselves in the mantle of
"science."
"Global warming" hysteria is only the latest in this
long line of notions, whose main argument is that there
is no argument, because it is "science." The recently
revealed destruction of raw data at the bottom of the
global warming hysteria, as well as revelations of attempts
to prevent critics of this hysteria from being published in
leading journals, suggests that the disinterested search for
truth-- the hallmark of real science-- has taken a back seat
to a political crusade.
An intercepted e-mail from a professor at the Climate
Research Unit in England to a professor at the University
of Pennsylvania warned the latter: "Don't any of you three
tell anybody that the UK has a Freedom of Information
Act" and urged the American professor to delete any
e-mails he may have sent a colleague regarding the
Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
When a business accused of fraud begins shredding
its memos and deleting its e-mails, the media are quick
to proclaim these actions as signs of guilt. But, after the
global warming advocates began a systematic destruction
of evidence, the big television networks went for days
without even reporting these facts, much less commenting
on them.
As for politicians, Senator Barbara Boxer has
urged prosecution of the hackers who uncovered and
revealed the e-mails! People who have in the past
applauded whistleblowers in business, in the military,
or in Republican administrations, and who lionized the
New York Times for publishing the classified Pentagon
papers, are now shocked and outraged that someone


Shared to expose massive evidence
of manipulations, concealment and
destruction of data-- and deliberate
cover-ups of all this-- in the global
warming establishment.
. ^Factual data are crucial in real
science. Einstein himself urged that
his own theory of relativity not be
accepted until it could be empirically
verified. This verification came when
scientists around the world observed
an eclipse of the sun and discovered
that light behaved as Einstein's
theory said it would behave, however
implausible that might have seemed
beforehand.
Today, politicized "science" has
too big a stake in the global warming
hysteria to let the facts speak for
. themselves and let the chips fall
where they-may.
Too many people-- in politics and
in the media, as well as among those climate scientists
who are promoting global warming hysteria-- let the raw
data on which their calculations have been based fall into
the "wrong hands."
People who talk about the corrupting influence of
money seem to automatically assume that it is only private
money. that is corrupting. But, when governments have
billions of dollars-invested in the global warming crusade,
massive programs underway and whole political careers
at risk if that crusade gets undermined, do not expect the
disinterested search for truth.
Among the intelligentsia, there have always been many
who are ready to jump on virtually any bandwagon that
will take them to the promised land, where the wise and
noble few-- like themselves-- can take the rest of us poor
dummies in hand and tell us how we had better change the
way we live our lives.
No doubt some climate scientists honestly believe that
global warming poses a threat. But other climate scientists
honestly believe the opposite. That is why the raw data
have had to be destroyed before the latter get their hands
on it.
This is tragically the case as regards many othet issues,
besides global warming, where data are made available
only to the true believers and kept out of the hands of
those who think otherwise.

tragedy



strikes


Bdy Rick Burnham
Editor


T his was supposed to be about
my New Year's Resolutions,
about Skittles and hash
browns and fried foods
galore. Can't really find any humor in
any of it at this point though. Kind of
difficult to laugh and smile.
Sunday's vehicle accident that took
two Williston High School students
from us and left a third in critical
condition is the kind of thing that
overshadows just about every aspect
of daily life. Ball games'and city
council meetings and yard sales and
rodeos take a back seat. None of it
seems as important as it did a week
ago.
Tiffany Oliver and Marqui
Cook, both 17, were killed in the
accident, and 15-year-old Nikole
Brown was critically injured when
the truck Oliver was driving left a
Marion County road and crashed into
trees shortly before 3 a.m. Sunday,;
according to the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Any loss of life is devastating. It
hurts a little more when those lost
were in the prime of life. And when an
accident like this takes place during
the holidays, it just leaves youth numb.
Finding. a silver lining to this cloud
may be easier said than done,,but
it's out there. Something good will
come of it - perhaps something small
;and somewhat insignificant, perhaps
something more. A young person will
take extra precautions when behind
the wheel of a vehicle - driving a
little bit slower than they otherwise
would, taking time to buckle that seat
belt when they otherwise wouldn't.
Another will dedicate himself or
herself to the memory of Tiffany and
Marqui and use that motivation to
excel academically, or athletically, or
personally. Almost certainly, there are
people all over Williston and Levy
County who have a new respect for
the fragility of human life, and as a
result will begin to live their own lives
a little fuller.
Small rewards when the price we
paid to get them are two young people
- the most valuable resource any
community has.
For the families and friends
of Tiffany, Marqui and Nikole,
Christmas may never be the same
Again. And for the students and faculty
of WHS, the second half of the school
year probably appears to be a bit of an
,uphill climb.
Principal John Lott, along with
members of the School Board of
Levy County, will certainly take the
proper steps to ensure those who need
counseling to deal with the tragedy
get it. Students and faculty will no
doubt come to the assistance of the
families of the three girls. That is what
caring people do, and the Williston
community certainly knows how to
circle the wagons, to take care of its
own.
We saw that last year when a
young mother lost her life in a terrible
accident. Friends and families came
together to provide warmth and
comfort to those in need, to ensure
they would not have to go through
such a difficult time alone. A shoulder
to lean on, someone to talk to.
They will do it again this time,
make no mistake.
Time heals all wounds, and in time,
Williston will certainly heal. Right
now though, the promise of a New
Year seems a little difficult to find.

Many of life's biggest
problems seemed rather
small on Dec. 21, 2008
when my father's heart
failed. It took a couple of minutes for
Mom to realize he was unconscious.
It was early morning. She thought he
had fallen back asleep. She quickly
called my older brother, who lives
the closest, and the 911 center. It
took my other brother and his wife
three minutes to drive to my parents'
house and another minute or two
for a deputy sheriff to arrive. The
ambulance got there as fast as the
paramedics could drive it.
By the time my brother gave him
CPR, the deputy gave him CPR,
paramedics gave him CPR, then
shock treatments with a defibrillator,
and finally a dose of some type of
fluid that started his heart, he had
been without a heartbeat for what
my older brother estimates was 14
minutes. He wound up in a persistent
vegetative state. Doctors gave him a
1 percent chance of waking up. Even
if he did awaken, they said he would
never remember any family members,
including my Mom. The news was
grim.
After a family conference, a
decision was made to take him off
life support devices. Doctors replaced
an apparatus that breathed for him
with an oxygen,mask and withheld
nutrition. It was an agonizing decision.
Naturally we all prayed for a miracle.
We waited for what seemed like an
eternity. It was really only about a
month. Dad woke up one day and
asked what he was doing in the
hospital. Mom was jubilant.
A year later, dad is doing well.
I talk to him every week by phone.
He went to a Christmas Eve church
service with my Mom and my older
brother and his wife last week. The
icy roads in Wisconsin did not deter
my older brother or Mom. They were
going to the church service, by gosh,
ice or no ice. Wisconsinites drive on
icy roads all the time. It is part of
living through Wisconsin winters.
Earlier in the day, Mom and Dad
took part in the big Christmas family
gathering at their house.
Dad is not back 100 percent, but
he is Dad again. He knows me and
recognizes my voice. We talk about
the weather, the Green Bay Packers,
manatees, and a wide array of other


subjects. Dad and my Mom are
ready to celebrate their 60th wedding
anniversary in January, and everyone
in the family feels thankful he will be
there to enjoy it with my mother..
The year 2009 was a difficult one
for the family. We took it one day at
a time. Most of us in the family do
believe a miracle occurred when Dad
woke up. Dad's doctors can't explain
what happened. They don't deny his
recovery went far beyond their highest
expectations and then some. We got
our miracle. Dad came back from
the most horrible of conditions. He
enjoyed a snowy, icy Christmas with
the family this year.
We're all hoping that 2010 will be
a year of less stress, although no one is
complaining about the little things that
happen to us now. We know we could
never ask for a greater Christmas gift
than what we have received. Dad is,
81 and every day of life is a gift for
someone who has been through his
type of ordeal. He jokes with us and
sometimes remembers things most of
the rest of the family can't recall. The
fact that he knows all of us and can
remember things about all our lives is
amazing.
Life does goes on in other mundane
ways. Someone asked me the other
day what politics might be like in
2010. I said I didn't know, but I
suspect on the national level it will
continue to be turbulent and divisive.
Health care reform is front and center,
along with the war in Afghanistan and,
to a lesser extent the war in Iraq, and
the recession. I keep hoping American
troops will capture or kill Osama Bin
Laden, the satanic mastermind of the
2001 terrorist attacks on American
soil. I keep hoping someone will
explain the health care bill to me. I
have no clue about what's in it.
There will be an off-year national
election in November. I think most
of Congress will be on the election
ballot. It should be interesting to
find out how the American electorate
feels about the state of the union,
the wars,, the health care bill, the
economic recession and all the other
issues swirling around the beltway in
Washington, D.C. I won't make any
predictions.
It's not that I don't care about what
is happening. I do care passionately.
But my dad's illness last December
gave me a new set of priorities, or
perhaps refocused me on what is
really important in life. Human life is
such a sacred gift. It is impossible to


put a value on it. I do know that Dad's
experiences have taught me not to take
the "little things" for granted anymore.
When Dad was unconscious and
in a persistent vegetative state, I
wondered if I would ever hear his
voice again or see him lumbering
around the house. I wondered if I
would ever argue with him about
national politics again. I wondered if
the big lug would ever'wrap on'e of
his long arms around my shoulders
again. I wondered if I would ever get
a chance to say goodbye to him before
he passed.
When he was unconscious, I was
down here in Florida and debating
exactly what I should do. One day I
called his hospital room and a male
nurse at the hospital, Pete, gave me
details about Dad's condition. Dad
was still in a persistent vegetative state
at the time. The nurse said he didn't
know if Dad could hear me, but he
was willing to put the phone up to his
ear to let me talk to him. I told Dad,
things I probably never would have
had the courage to say to his face,
such as the love I felt for him and how
much I missed him. I told him he had
to make an effort to wake himself. I
said no one else could do it for him.
I hoped he heard me. I had no idea
if my words had disappeared into a
dead brain. I prayed for his recovery
afterward.
It wasn't too many days later that
Mom, who never left his side for
the entire time he was sick, and who
had talked to him constantly at his
bedside, heard him ask where he was.
My "conversation" with him earlier
by phone when he was unconscious
probably had nothing to do with him
waking up. But it had given me an
emotional release I needed.
Mom has been talking to him
continuously since that time. I know
he appreciates the little things too,
such as hearing her voice and feeling
her presence.' Five months ago, he got
a chance to see a great granddaughter
born to one of his grandsons and his
wife.
Dad is getting along better than
doctors could ever have expected. He
has his ups and downs, but none of
us are sweating the small stuff, and
neither is Dad. He's glad to be alive,
and we're glad to have him back
walking and talking among us.
I hope 2010 also brings blessings
and happiness to you and your family.
God Bless.
And don't sweat the small stuff.


Happy New Year!


Dad's heart failure taught me to

"She could call me and talk to me about anything," Hilty

Chiefland guard's


court skills making


life difficult for foes

Story and photo by Rick Burnham
Editor

It should come as no surprise to anyone that Eugene
Carter's favorite classroom subject at Chiefland
High School is math. After all, when he is not in the
classroom, he can usually be found on the basketball
court. And when he is on the court, the numbers just
seem to add up rather quickly.
That's when Eugene becomes "Pee Wee."And that's
when opposing defenses - and scorekeepers - begin to
sweat.
Carter leads the Indians with 28.4 points per game
this year, nearly half of the 60 points the team has
averaged through seven games. Throw in another 10
the team gets off of Carter's five assists per game,
and countless others he creates as, the engineer of
Chiefland's fast-break offense, and you have the perfect
fodder for a special banner, hung from the windows of
the Chiefland High School gymnasium.
"Pee Wee's Playhouse."
Mike Beck remembers well the first time he saw
Carter play ball. He had just been hired as the coach of
the Indians for 2009-10, and he called an impromptu
meeting of the potential players of this year's team.
Right in the middle of the group was a young man with
fluid moves and speed to bum, a young man who in
the blink of an eye would be two steps ahead of his
opponents on the court.
"I knew the first time I saw him play that he had
some talent," Beck said. "I knew that we would have to
utilize this guy anyway we could."
After reviewing game film from a year ago, Beck
said he found that Carter ne\ er look more than 16 shots
min a game.
"I told him before the season that if there is a game
where he only takes 16 shots, then he and I would have
to have a talk, because he has to shoot more than that."
Carter, the son of Marlene Jenkins of Chiefland and
Eugene Carter of Cross City, said scoring is not the
main thing on- his mind when he brings the ball down
the court for the Indians.
"I would rather distribute the ball," he said, adding
that he patterns his game after guard Chris Paul of the
New Orleans Hornets.
Carter's willingness to get the ball to his teammates
comes as no surprise to Beck.
"The best thing about PeeWee is that he likes to
have a total game," the coach said. "The first thing he


Chiefland Indians guard Eugene "Pee Wee" Carter leads his team with 28.4 points per game
after seven games this season.


looks at is not necessarily points. He looks at assists
and steals and rebounds and things like that."
Beck said that during one game this season, he
looked out on the court and found center Bo Beauchamp
playing outside, instead of underneath the basket.
"I looked out there and thought to myself, 'Why is
Bo playing out there?'" he said. As it turned out, Carter
had asked Beauchamp to move to the outside so that he
could grab a few rebounds.
Carter's favorite player, by the way, is LeBron
James, the strong forward of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Beck said the Indians have been experimenting with
a formation that will actually allow Pee Wee Carter to
play in the paint, while the taller players on the team
move to the perimeter.
"We have a play where we flip flop our wings with
our base players because we have not been getting
much production out of our inside," he said. "So if
teams are going to play us man to man, we will just
post him up, because you can't cover him down there
either. Either he is going to score, or they are going to
foul him, or both."
If the genetics ever kick in for Carter, Beck said, he
may very well look more at home under the basket. All
or most of the male members of his family are much
taller. It was Carter's dad who gave him the nickname
"Pee Wee" years ago.
"I think he still might grow some more," the coach
said. "And if he were to get to six feet, maybe six-one,
and improve his academic grades, he could play a lot
of places."


Those grades are a bit of a problem, Beck said. But
he added that recent improvement in the classroom by
Carter has helped ease the concern.
"He still needs some work academically," Beck
said. "It's not that he can't do the work, but in the past,
he has chosen not to. But I think he has now realized
it is important. We would not want that to stand in
his way of being successful. He has improved in that
area, but there is still room to grow,"
Chiefland's home crowds have been growing
steadily this year, to the point that sellouts are now
commonplace. The reason, Beck said, is Pee Wee.
'"I don't think we would have sold out all of our
home games so far if he was not playing," the coach
said. "I have been told that these are the best home
crowds that we have had. The school is happy with
our gate receipts."
Beck said that the crowds sense that on any given
night, Pee Wee just might make an unbelievable
shot - perhaps to win a game or leave an opponent
scratching its collective head in disbelief.
"He has made some shots that are borderline
fantastic," he said. "I will turn around to Coach
(Adam) Boyd on the bench and say 'It makes my job
easier when he does that,'" Beck said.
Bottom line, the coach said, is that Pee Wee Carter
is just a natural talent.
"He is not perfect - there are still things we need
to work on," he said. "But he really loves to play
basketball, and he is a great basketball player."

Marion's Jeremy Singleton. in the first half.


Perhaps Williston's opening round victory in the annual Kingdom of
the Sun Tournament was not the statement Head Coach Steve Faulkner
was looking for. The Red Devils looked sluggish at times in Monday's
75-55 victory over North Marion, prompting the first-year coach to
keep a wave of reserves on the court throughout tfe game.
Still, a 20-point win in hostile territory - the game was played at
Ocala Vanguard High School, just down the road from North Marion
- is impressive in its own right, particularly when the Red Devils
achieved it while not hitting on all cylinders.
Senior guard Deonte Welch scored 13 points, all in the second half,
as Williston, the state's fifth-ranked 3A team, improved to 10-0 on
the season. With the win, the Red Devils advanced to a second-round
showdown Tuesday with Ocala Vanguard, a 74-72 overtime winner
over St. Francis of Gainesville.
Williston trailed early in the game before using a 14-2 run to take
control.
North Marion's Travis Fletcher gave his team a 5-4 lead with a free
throw at the 3:48 mark of the first quarter, but Williston responded by
scoring the next six points of the game. Jordan White connected on an
inside jumper, Tony James hit two free throws and Tre Wilson made a
layup to put Williston ahead 10-5 with 1:40 left in the quarter.
Courtland Thomas made a layup to get the Colts to within 10-7, but
Williston scored the next eight points to effectively put the game out of
reach. Deterion Ross made a 10-footer, Paul King converted a layup and
sank a 12-foot shot, and Kelcey Coleman grabbed an offensive rebound
and put it back in. Williston led 18-7 with 6:10 left in the half.
The Red Devils would stretch their.lead to 33-19 in the latter stages
of the first half, getting contributions from a variety of players down
the stretch. Jacques Edwards got four of his eight points on layups
following steals midway through the second quarter. King connected on
a three-point shot midway through the period, following another Red
Devil steal.
North Marion turned the ball over 24 times in the first
half as the Red Devils employed their up-tempo style of play.
Faulkner said his team's ability to put pressure on the younger North
Marion team - both on offense and defense - was the key to the

contest.
"Getting them to play at our tempo was the key," he said. "When we get teams to
play the way we want to play - up and down, up and down - we tend to have more
of an advantage."
Faulkner added that his team's ability to attack the basket inside was paramount
to the victory.
"We came out and settled for the three-point shot early on and were 0-7 in the
first quarter," he said. "I convinced them to get the ball to the basket and we ended
up stretching our lead out in the second quarter.
"So attacking the basket and playing at our tempo were the main keys for us
tonight."
Despite the lopsided win, Faulkner said his team could have played better.
"We were sloppy," he said. "Hopefully we will be a little sharper tomorrow
(Tuesday.)"
Isaac Floyd scored 12 points for the Red Devils, while King had 10. Edwards
finished with 8, Wilson had seven, James Hunt and James had 6 apiece, and Ross
and Coleman finished with four each. Jawantis Collins and Stephen Brown each
managed two points.
North Marion was scheduled to face St. Francis earlier in the day on Tuesday.

Movie



Choices
Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel
(Running time: 88 minutes)
Rated PG
Starring Jason Lee
The Chipmunks are back again. While I didn't love
last year's chipmunk movie and I don't love this year's
movie, both are harmless slapstick entertainment for
younger kids.
In this version, the Chipmunks have put Dave in the
hospital. Then they finish off an aunt. So they are left
with a nerdy cousin to watch over them while they enroll
in high school, which is pretty silly.
Their school needs money to keep their music program
going. Alvin, Simon and Theodore decide to compete in
a battle of the high school bands to win $25,000 for the
music program.
But three female chipmunks, The Chippettes, come
forward to compete for the school, too. The plot gets a
little complicated, but our chipmunks prevail and lessons
are learned. All ends well.
This cute movie has no violence, bad language or sex.
It should be fine for kids 7 and up who understand some
of the high school hijinks. I prefer the first Chipmunks
movie, perhaps because it was funnier. Therefore I
suggest that parents send the kids with grandma, grandpa
'or a babysitter. Alvin and The Chipmunks: The Squeakuel
is boring for adults.

Did You Hear About the Morgans
(Running time: 107 minutes)
Rated: PG-13
Starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Hugh Grant, Sam
Elliott, Mary Steenburgen
Hugh Grant has become quite adept at comedy.
He has all the funny lines in Did You Hear About the
Morgans and he delivers them beautifully.
The Morgans are a couple who have been separated
for several months and are on the verge of divorcing.
They see a hit man who has just killed someone, so they
have to leave town.
Meryl Morgan (Parker) and her husband Paul (Grant)
are true New Yorkers. They get shipped out to a witness
protection program in Wyoming, where they are fish
out of water. They are living in a lovely cabin in the
woods, totally isolated from everyone, with no phone,
no Blackberry and too much of each other.
The subplot involves the hit man ferreting them out
so that he can kill them. Two great law-enforcers (Elliott
and Steenburgen) in Wyoming are hired to protect them.
The Morgans come closer together, then move apart then
come closer again until they are able to reclaim some of
the magic that brought them together in the first place.
While this may be more like a sitcom than a great
movie, I found it very entertaining. There is some
violence, some bad language, some discussion about
infidelity and sexual innuendo but no on-screen sex.
Did You Hear About the Morgans is fine to see with
Ids 12 and up. Tag aong, it's funny.
