Our opinion


of the Fair
The Suwannee River Fair Youth
Livestock Show and Sale is all about
the kids.
Sometimes we lose track of
that, and When it happens, it's
unfortunate, to say the least. That
appears to be the case in the current
controversy surrounding a Levy
County Commissioner, his children,
their livestock, and the hundreds of
potential buyers involved in the final
day sale.
The sheer number of people
involved in the Fair is mind-boggling
- the cars and trucks parked outside
the fairgrounds during the two weeks
of the show will attest to that. With
that many people involved, it is
almost a guarantee that political lines
will eventually cross. And in today's
,world of political wrongdoing, it's
easy to point fingers and cast stones.
We aren't like that in the Tri-
County area - our families are good,
hard-working folks and the people we
put in office do the hard work needed
to ensure our communities remain a
great place to live, work and play.
Meanwhile, we must continue
to instill in our children the critical
values needed to have good, hard-
working families and leaders in the
future. And the Suwannee River Fair
Youth Livestock Show and Sale does
just that. Let's not tarnish it with an
issue that is much to do about nothing.
In short, we believe the
commissioner in question did nothing
wrong, and that he has nothing to
apologize for, and that the hundreds
of buyers should be commended for
their generosity and high degree of
integrity.
Let's keep the Suwannee River Fair
Youth Livestock Show and Sale about
the kids.

The federal government's
plan to declare the west Bronson
business district a flood hazard
area is being met with resistance
from town officials.
Bronson town council
members voted 5-0 Monday
to hire the engineering firm
of Mittaur & Associates to
begin gathering information to
challenge claims by the Federal
Emergency Management
Agency, Suwannee River Water
Management District and its
consultant, URS Corporation
that the west Bronson business
district would flood in a 100
year storm.
FEMA has developed
revised computer flood maps
with assistance from SRWMD
and. URS, a private company.
URS established elevations
used to forecast the flooding.
The company also says it
walked along a tributary it
believes would flood west
Bronson. )


Bronson officials say the
computer models are based
on inaccurate scientific data
that show manmade ditches as
tributaries of streams. They say
the ditches that stretch for miles
north and south of Bronson
drain storm water away from
the town and make it unlikely
the town would ever flood.
There is concern business
and development would be
deterred from moving to
Bronson if the companies were
required to purchase federal
flood insurance or elevate
buildings to meet flood plain
requirements.
Bronson Councilman Aaron
Edmondson was the only board
member who questioned the
town's challenging of the
flood maps. He wondered
what would happen if the town
successfully contested the maps
and flooding were to occur in
the downtown business district.
He wondered if the businesses
would be in jeopardy with no
flood insurance. Councilman

Levy County Fair


opens Thursday


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor


Families looking for
something fun to do on the
last few days before the kids
go back to school should
consider heading to Williston
for four full days of rides and
'entertainment.
The Levy County Fair kicks
off Thursday at 4 p.m. and will
be running through Sunday.
It is the first year the fair is
being held in the spring, and
Levy County Fair Association
President Debra Jones said
this year's lineup could not be
better.
She said they decided to
move from October to spring
because the fair was running
into too many problems in the
'fall, such as football playoffs
and hunting season. And spring
just seemed to be a logical time
to move to.
"Believe me, the weather
has' been much more beautiful
this week than it is in october,"


she said.
She said the first two years
of the fair were not quite as
successful as they had hoped.
The first year, three years ago,
the association actually lost
money, $15,000 to be exact.
The last fair in the fall of 2008
attracted 10,000 people and
broke even financially.
But she said this year,
they're hoping to bring in at
least 15,000 people and make
enough money to pay off the
rest of the $3,500 debt left over
from 2007.
There has been quite a bit
of fundraising this year, such
as yard sales, selling food at
festivals, and equestrian shows
that will conclude duriii', the
fair.
Besides the regular rides
and cuisine, Jones said the thir
this year, which will be held at
the Williston Airport Industrial
Park on South Hwy. 41, otTers a

Suspended commissioner faces sentencing Monday


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Suspended Levy County Commissioner Tony
Parker will be sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court
following his Dec. 4 conviction on bribery charges.
The sentencing begins at 10 a.m. at the federal
courthouse in Gainesville.
Parker was pulled into a federal investigation
when an FBI agent posing as a developer offered him
and Commissioner Sammy Yearty $10,000 cash in a
Gainesville motel room.
Yearty and Parker took the cash, but Parker said
he and Yearty were the victims of law enforcement
entrapment. He said the entire bribery scheme
was concocted by FBI agents to create a crime that
otherwise would not have existed.
The jury did not agree and convicted Parker and
Yearty of bribery and conspiracy to commit bribery.
Yearty was also convicted of lying to the FBI. He will
be sentenced later.


Parker's motion in February
asking federal officials to
investigate potential juror
misconduct in the trial was denied
by U.S. District Judge Stephan P.
Mickle.
A former juror in the trial
approached the son of Parker's
attorney, Gloria Fletcher, on
Jan. 27 to say he (or she) was
upset about the conduct of other
jurors during the trial. The juror
was concerned other jurors had
discussed the case outside the Par
courtroom on lunch breaks and
that certain conversations indicated the jurors decided
the guilt of the two commissioners before the defense
and prosecution had presented their full cases. -
Mickle said federal rules of evidence prohibit
jurors from testifying about any matter or statement
occurring during jury deliberations, unless the


juror is testifying about whether
"extraneous prejudicial information
was improperly brought to bear on
any juror."
"The duty to investigate arises
only when the party alleging
misconduct makes an adequate
showing of extrinsic influence to
overcome the presumption of jury
impartiality...," Mickle wrote.
Mickle said it hardly bears
repeating that courts are reluctant
to haul jurors in after they have
ker reached a verdict to probe for
potential instances of bias,
misconduct or influences that come from outside the
jury itself.
The judge said there was no evidence that someone
or something outside the jury influenced the verdict.
He said Fletcher's motion "merely alleged" that
premature discussions about the verdict took place.

Sheriff's arrests


Levy residents experience game system thefts


A man's TV, game system and games were stolen
from his home, sold and resold last month, and a
Williston man has been charged with the crime.
Raymond Shiver, 24, of 16070 N.E. Fifth St.,
Williston, was arrested at 12:15 p.m., April 2, and
charged with dealing in stolen property after a Levy
County Sheriff's Office deputy's investigation.
On March 8, Tony Leto reported to the sheriff's
office that his 42-inch TV, Play Station 3 game
system and eight games, valued at $2,100 were stolen
from his home. A week later, Leto said he received
information that Shiver had stolen the items and had
resold them to Ronald Speck.
Speck admitted Shiver sold him the items for
$500, and he, in turn, resold it and made a profit.
Speck helped the sheriff's office retrieve all of the
items. A witness was present during the initial sale by
Shiver and made a sworn statement.
Shiver was arrested at Leto's home. He was at the
home frequently because he was doing construction
work at the residence. His bond was $15,000.
M Another Levy County resident reported her
home was burglarized and game system and games
were stolen last week.
Paula Adams told the sheriff's office on March
30 that the game system and games were stolen. A
witness told Adams that Jonathan Kirkland, 18, of
12891 N.E. 85th Ave., Chiefland, approached her with
an Xbox 360 and several games asking for a ride to
Fanning Springs to sell the items, and his request was
granted.
Kirkland admitted to breaking into Adams' home
and stealing the system and game. He was arrested at
5:20 p.m., April 1, and was charged with burglary of
a residence and grand theft. Bond $20,000.

Elderly woman says caregiver


Williston arrests


stole over $1,000 with debit card


A 74-year-old wheelchair-bound Williston woman
said her caregiver exploited her and used her debit
card to make unauthorized cash withdrawals and
purchases.
Shantel Leeksha Haynes, 20, of 3824 N.E. 210th
Court, Williston, was hired by the elderly woman
five months ago to help with everyday functions.
Haynes' duties included cooking, cleaning, driving,
picking up medications and grocery shopping.
The victim said she gave Haynes her debit card to
make purchases and withdraw cash from the Perkins
State Bank ATM only because fees were charged at
other ATMs.
Haynes stopped working for the victim in late
February, and the victim was notified by Perkins
State Bank in early March that her account was in
the negative numbers.
The victim said over $1,000 in unauthorized
purchases were made and Haynes was the only one


with access to her card.
OnApril 2, Haynes was interviewed and according
to the arrest report, post-Miranda, Haynes admitted to
making the withdrawals and purchases. She said she
used the victim's card to buy a phone for $277.55,
phone accessories for $15.44, underwear for $10.67,
and she got her nails done at a salon for $32. She said
she also withdrew $180 from an ATM at a store.
According to the report, Haynes said she made
these unauthorized purchases because she felt it was
owed to her. She said she was only paid $25 for 6
hours of work per day.
Haynes also said she made withdrawals at'the
Williston Chevron and Kangaroo gas stations, but
that the transactions were all authorized by the
victim.
Haynes was charged with exploitation of the
elderly on April 2 at 2:09 p.m. She was released on
her own recognizance.

County reappoints planning commissioner

Move generates controversy from Yankeetown, Inglis residents


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Levy County commissioners got an earful
Tuesday from Yankeetown and Inglis residents
when the board voted 3-2 to reappoint Planning
Commissioner Thad Barber of Gulf Hammock
instead of choosing Yankeetown resident Kathleen
Burke to replace him.
Residents felt the southern part of the county
had no representation on the county commission
and some said they would make their discontent
known when the three who voted for Barber came
up for election.
"We feel in the south part of the county that
there are three members of this board that don't
want our vote in the next election," said Edward
Michaels, accusing the three who voted for Barber
of "some kind of back door" effort to put their man
in and keep Burke out.
Michaels added that Levy County has already
been "slurred" by two commissioners being
indicted and convicted of "nefarious acts." He was
referring to suspended Commissioners Sammy
Yearty and Tony Parker. They were convicted of
bribery in federal court.
He said there had been no explanation for why
Barber was selected over Burke.
"Your silence is deafening," Michaels said.
Commissioner Marsha Drew, who lives in
Yankeetown, failed to get a second to her motion
to appoint Burke until Chairwoman Nancy Bell
passed the gavel to Commissioner Danny Stevens,
but Drew's motion failed by the same margin
Stevens' motion passed to reappoint Barber.
Stevens, Commissioner Lilly Rooks and


Commissioner Chad Johnson wanted Barber to
remain on the commission, with Bell and Drew
voting against the appointment. Bell said she felt
the commissioners who live in the district where
the appointment is pending should choose who
gets the seat.
The commission has no written procedures for
appointing board members. The board member
from the district where the appointment is to be
made either re-appoints the advisory board member
or nominates someone new. If the nomination fails,
anyone on the board can'nominate their choice.
Bell, Drew and Johnson have indicated they
would like to see a policy developed for choosing
advisory board members.
Johnson, who spoke after Michaels, said he
didn't vote against Burke. He said he talked
to people in the, county who wanted someone
with knowledge and experience about the Levy
County Comprehensive Plan to have the position.
Barber, who was appointed in 2004, met those
qualifications.
"I think Mr. Barber has done a tremendous job
in the past," Barber said.
Johnson said his phone had rung more about
the issue of the planning commission appointment
than it had since he took office. He said it was
the first time he heard from constituents about an
actual agenda item rather than about roads.
Johnson said the issue of Barber's appointment
had created a "polarizing effect."
On an unrelated issue, commissioners refused
to send County Attorney Anne Bast Brown and
Development Department Director Rob Corbitt
to meet with the Yankeetown Town Council about
why the county is refusing to close a Tarmac test


pit five miles north of Inglis and Yankeetown.
s"The citizens of Levy County have a right to
expect open Government and deserve to know
'why' no action to enforce the development
conditions No. 2, 7 and 8 (in special exception use
permit SE03-05) was recommended by the County
Attorney," the council said in a March 18 letter to
the county commission.
The letter added, "Lack of enforcement creates
the clear perception amongst County citizens
that favoritism and unequal treatment continue
to drive the actions and decisions of the Levy
County Board of County Commissioners. That
corrosive perception damages the credibility of all
governments."
Jack Schofield, a member of the council, has
alleged in the past that one condition in the Tarmac
permit was rewritten to change the requirement for
the pit to be closed in one year, but Brown says the
change did not alter the meaning of the condition
and the pit does not have to be closed.
Tarmac has indicated it has met all the county
requirements. It is currently seeking federal and
state approvals for the mine. The company expects
to ask for a commercial mining permit from the
county in the near future.
Tarmac has indicated in the public presentations
that it expects the mine to operate for 100 years.
The company has given preliminary estimates of
500 rock trucks leaving the mine each day and 500
empty rock trucks would return to the mine daily.
The mine would be located on the opposite side
of U.S. 19 from two proposed Levy County nuclear
power plants. Progress Energy is in the process of
securing federal and state approvals for the two
nuclear plants.

Dad's



back
By Rick Burnham
Editor

eWen I was five years old,
I dragged the water hose
from the side of the house
Stomy father's pickup
truck, put the end in the gas tank and
turned that sucker on. Then I proudly
marched up to my
dad and proclaimed i'.
that he would not
have to buy gas
again - I had taken
care of the problem.
By the time he got-
there, a mixture of
water and gas was
running out of the
top of the tank.
That and several
other stories have been the highlight of
my dad's latest visit to Levy County.
Dad, who will be 86 on May 9,
lives with my sister in Vermont. He
comes home (we are originally from
Jasper) once every six months or so.
The current visit began when I picked
him up from the Jacksonville airport
on April 21. Our two-hour trip home
consisted of his explanation of how cold
it is in Vermont, his description of how
messed up the country has become, and
his incineration of approximately 42
cigarettes.
Funny thing about cigarettes: if there
is one window open in a vehicle that has
a smoker, most, but not all of the smoke
produced will fly out that window. But
if there are two windows open, the
smoke will fly right into the lungs of the
person who is not smoking. So, through
the wonder of second-hand smoke, I
was able to enjoy about 37 of those 42
cigarettes.
The weather down here is much
better than in Vermont, but the cooking
- my sister's cooking - is much better
in Vermont. Since arriving, my dad
has enjoyed such delicacies as ham
sandwiches, fish sandwiches, sausage
sandwiches, and microwave chicken pot
pies. I also try to buy him a big bag of
cheese puffs, which is easy on his teeth.
He eats those things until it appears as if
he is wearing orange lipstick. And then
my basset hound jumps up and licks it
off and they both laugh.
As is the usual procedure for dad's
trips, I made sure he made it over to
Ginger's Barbershop for a haircut,
and he dazzled the clientele there with
stories about how he used to cut hair
in Jasper. Dad was a barber throughout
the '50s and '60s, and his specialty was
the "crew cut." Dad loved the crew cut,
and he thought you ought to love it too.
Countless customers would sit down in
hair chair, ask for a "little bit off the top
and sides" and walk away with a crew
cut. At one point in time, most of the
men in Jasper, and one or two women
. as well, wore a crew cut, courtesy of my
, dad.
A new haircut lifts your spirits, and
Ginger gave dad one that made him
want to talk about old times. Like the
time when I filled the truck's gas tank
up with water, and the time when I
painted the side of the house red. To this
day, he says, no one knows where I got
the paint and the brush. But I did a good
job - you couldn't even tell where the
bricks ended and the mortar began.
And then there was the story about
how 10-year-old Rick and a friend went
from door to door with a gallon of milk
and a can of Nestles', selling chocolate
milk to the neighbors. That escapade
resulted in an Exxon-sized spill on Mrs.
Parr's living room rug, and the sale was
over before it began. And who could
forget the time when teenage Rick
climbed the water tower in Jasper and
painted his name and baseball number
on it. That one cost dad about $40 in
paint to repair the damage.
He tells me these stories to pass the
time away, but I think there is a subtle
message there as well: be patient with.
me in my latter years, my son. 1 was


patient with you in your younger ones.
I do my best to remember that as
I open another bag of cheese puffs,
and breathe in the smoke of another
cigarette. Soon enough, we'll be off to
the Jacksonville airport, and I will send
him on his way.
I think I miss him already.

One thing I have learned
about President Barack
Obama is the need to read
the fine print. He reminds
me of a slick-talking salesman. His
latest proposal to expand offshore
drilling sounds good on its face, but
I wonder if he is merely dangling a
carrot in front of Republicans while
he slips a climate change bill into their
hands and hopes they sign it.
When 1 first read Thursday's
Associated Press story about Obama
shaking up energy policy and throwing
his own environmental backers under
the bus, I was optimistic the President
had for the first time taken a historic
step to begin the process of weaning
the United States off foreign oil
and protecting the country from an
economic collapse if oil supplies are
suddenly cut off.
His announcement said a huge
swath of East Coast waters and
certain protected areas in Alaska are
now open to drilling, and he wants
Congress to lift a.drilling ban in the
oil-rich eastern Gulf of Mexico. But
the devil is always in the details
with Obama. He may be wooing
Republican support for his climate
change bill.


My guess is Obama wants to do
some energy policy horse trading with
Republicans and will probably sell
out the American public to advance
his agenda. He probably thinks
his announcement will help him
maneuver past road blocks that would
prevent him advancing policies and
programs that promote his so-called
environmental agenda.
My fear is that Obama really isn't
offering anything of substance. The
Democrat-controlled Congress won't
ban drilling in the Eastern Gulf of
Mexico or do anything else to offend
its liberal base in the northeast United
States, so you can probably figure that
Obama's announcement was nothing
more than a political card trick.
I want to believe Obama is sincere.
I like the idea of opening a large piece
of the eastern United States to drilling
from Delaware to Central Florida and
opening the northern waters of Alaska
to drilling, but once again, I haven't
read the fine print. Is this a ruse rather
than a change in policy?
I doubt if Obama has buried
the old "cap and trade" bill that
would penalize electric companies
and electric cooperatives, and their
customers by forcing them to pay
higher utility bills if fossil fuels are
burned to generate electricity. I think
cap and trade is still on the table


because Obama wants to use it as
leverage to promote his radical "green
agenda."
The truth is theUnited States is
an oil thirsty country that depends
to a great extent on oil purchased
from countries that hate the United
States. Even if that were not the
case, the instability in the Middle
East should be a warning sign for
Obama and members of Congress.
If Iraq degenerates into.a nasty civil
war when American troops leave
the country in a couple of years, the
violence could spread to a regional
conflict and interrupt supplies of
oil headed for the United States.
The result would be an economical
catastrophe. Gasoline prices at the
pump could easily top $5 per gallon
and shortages would leave long lines
of cars waiting for every drop of gas
available at gas stations.
Unfortunately Obama doesn't deal
with energy problems in a realistic
way. My guess is he wants to bait
the Republicans into buying into his
climate change proposals even if it
means pushing gasoline prices through
the roof. If Obama pushes through
his agenda and forces American auto
manufacturers to meet catastrophically
high emission standards to reduce

Health bill replete with budget gimmicks.


By Rep. Cliff Stearns
U.S. House of Representatives

Western civilization
is deeply indebted
to ancient Greece
where the city-states
contributed so much toward the
development of democracy, art, poetry,
science, and philosophy.
But, modem Greece serves as an
example of run-away profligacy with
its unsustainable entitlements. The
crisis followed the revelation by
government officials that Greece's
budget deficit was 14 percent of gross
domestic product (GDP). This resulted
in the downgrading of that nation's
debt and growing international fears of
a default.
According to the Congressional
Budget Office, the U.S. federal budget
deficit was nearly 10 percent of GDP
last year'and President Obama and the
leadership in Congress is pushing the
federal deficit and federal borrowing
higher. Our nation is clearly on the
path of Greece and the adoption of the
recent health care bill will only hasten
the future budget meltdown.
The Senate version of health care


legislation just enacted continues to
spend far more than we can afford and
at a rate faster than anyone could have
imagined. The bill itself is replete with
budget gimmicks to game the system
and to show that it will not add to the
deficit.
The facts show the plan will add to
the deficit. In fact, future Congresses
likely will repeal some of these
Medicare and hospital cuts, as well as
some of those taxes.
The President indicated that he
would veto any health care bill that
created a dime, or even a penny of
deficit. Clearly this was a disingenuous
pledge because I have gone through the
scoring on the Senate health care bill,
and it will create a higher deficit.
First of all, there are 10 years
of taxes to pay for six years of
benefits. That's just one of the
gimmicks employed, backloading the
spending. Many of the taxes will start
immediately, yet the health exchange
does not begin until 2014. What
happens to the deficit in 2020? Health
care costs will push it up.
The "doc fix" is another example
of fiscal chicanery. The bill contains
a 21 percent cut in the sustainable


growth rate (SGR), or the Medicare
reimbursement rate for physicians. In
addition to the 21-percent cut, there is
also a two-percent cut every year for
the rest of the decade.
However, the House already has
passed H.R. 3961, the doc fix, which
would prevent these reductions. The
original House version of health care
legislation included this fix, but the
bill approved does not. So that's $208
billion in bogus saving in the bill.
Similarly, the bill includes $156
billion to the hospital market basket,
the reimbursement formula to calculate
hospital payments. Can we realistically
expect to provide a negative cost
increase to hospitals? As with the
Medicare cuts, this reduction should
prove elusive.
As for the tax increases, there is the
tax on "Cadillac" healthcare plans that
is projected to take in $32 billion. This
tax impacts union members, and the
enactment keeps being delayed and the
dollar threshold for the tax rises. It is
totally conceivable that union pressure
on Congress will result in-the repeal of
this tax.

'Change' is not new


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

When ancient fossils of creatures that live on the ocean floor have
been found in rock formations at the summit of Mount Everest,
that ought to give us a clue thatbig changes in the earth are
nothing new, and that huge changes have been going on long
before human beings appeared on the scene.
The recent statement that the earth
was warmer in the Middle Ages than it is
today, made by the climate scientist who
is at the heart of the recent scandal about
"global warming" statistics, ought to at least
give pause to those who are determined
to believe that human beings must be the , ..-.
reason for "climate change."
Other climate scientists have pointed
out before now that the earth has warmed
and cooled many times over the centuries.
Contrary to the impression created in much I
of the media and in politics, no one has -
denied that temperatures change, sometimes
more than they are changing today.
Three years ago, a book by Singer and
Avery was published with a title that says it , . :. .
all: "Unstoppable Global Warming: Evern
1500 Years." __________
Contrary to clever political spin that
likened those who refused to join the "global warming" hysteria to people who
denied the Holocaust, no one denied that climates change. Indeed, some of the
climate scientists who have been the biggest critics of the current hysteria have
pointed out that climates had changed back and forth, long before human beings
created industrial societies or drove SUVs.
It is those who have been pushing the hysteria who have beeh playing fast
and loose with the facts, wanting to keep crucial data from becoming public,
and even "losing" some of that data that supposedly proved the most dire
consequences. It has not been facts but computer models at the heart of the
"global warming" crusade.


Nothing is easier than coming up with computer models that prove almost
anything. Back during the 1970s, there were computer models predicting mass
starvation and global cooling. The utter failure of those predictions ought to
make us at least skeptical of computer models, especially computer models
based on data that advocates want to keep from public view or even "lose"
when investigators start closing in.
On climate issues, as on many other issues, the biggest argument of the
left has been that there is no argument. The word "science" has been used as
a magic mantra to shut up critics, even when those critics have been scientists
with international reputations as specialists in climate science. "
Stealing the aura of science for political purposes is nothing new for the left.
Karl Marx called his brand of Utopianism "scientific socialism." Even earlier, in
the 18th century, the Marquis de Condorcet referred to "engineering" society. In
the 20th century, H.G. Wells referred to the creation of a lasting peace as a heavy
and complex "piece of mental engineering."
Genuine science is the opposite of dogmatism, but that does not keep
dogmatists from invoking the name of science in order to shut off debate. Science
is a method of analysis, rather than simply a set of conclusions. In fact, much of
the history of science is a history of having to abandon the prevailing conclusions.
among scientists, in light of new evidence or new methods of analysis.
When the scientists in England who were promoting "global warming"
hysteria sent e-mails out to colleagues, urging them not to reveal certain data and
not to let the fact become widely known that there was a freedom-of-information
act in Britain, they were behaving like politicians, rather than scientists.
The huge political, financial and ideological investment of many individuals
and institutions in the "global warming" hysteria makes it virtually impossible for
many of the climate crusaders to gamble it all on a roll of the dice, which is what
empirical verification is. It is far safer to dogmatize and to demonize those who
think otherwise.
Educators who turn schools into indoctrination centers have been going all
out to propagandize a whole generation with Al Gore's movie, "An Inconvenient
Truth"-- which has in fact carried a message that has been very convenient for Al
Gore financially, producing millions of dollars from his "green" activities.

Henry Waxman:The witch hunter of Capitol Hill


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate

Has there ever been a time when 18-term liberal
Democratic Rep. Henry Waxman's nostrils weren't
flaring indignantly at corporate executives and
entrepreneurs? The man wields his gavel over the
free market like a Damoclean sword. He throws the weight of his
congressional chairmanship around like a sumo wrestler walking
across hot stones. For more than 35 years, Waxman has made it
his taxpayer-funded business to use the power of government to
undermine private business.
No one should be surprised by his latest thuggish efforts to
silence companies speaking out about the cost implications and
financial burdens of Demcare -- least of all, those companies.
This is the Eliot Ness-wannabe who serves proudly as the
left's chief inquisitor. This is the Capitol Hill haranguer who
herded tobacco company CEOs in front of the cameras, made
them raise their right hands and cackled as he forced them to
testify under oath about the evils of their products. Waxman's
demagoguery then was so over the top that it prompted
Washington Post columnist William Raspberry to write that
the "Capitol Hill inquisition masquerading as legislative
hearings reminds me of nothing so much as a witch-hunting
Joe McCarthy."
Last month, Waxman stacked the deck at the Toyota
inquisition hearing with auto industry-bashing Naderites.
In 2007, he held court over the Valerie Plame show trial.
And in February 2008, he wasted four hours on a nationally
televised interrogation of baseball legend Roger Clemens and
his trainer. Republicans called Waxman out on his Captain
Queeg-ish vendetta against Clemens. The debacle was dubbed
a "Roman Circus." After squandering public resources on
congressional showboating over steroid use, Waxman himself
confessed that he "didn't think it was a hearing that needed to
be held."
When he isn't abusing the deliberative process to add to
his press-clipping collection and serve up red meat (er, blue
meat) for the TV airwaves, he's short-circuiting hearings to
ram through political power grabs masquerading as "reform."
Waxman pushed massively expensive, complicated cap-and-
tax legislation through the House last year by leapfrogging
over subcommittee debate. He also staved off Republican
efforts to slow down and scrutinize the behemoth bill by
hiring a "speed reader" to plow through the 900-page bill
during markl-up.
Waxman himself couldn't be bothered to familiarize
himself with the trillion-dollar regulatory tyranny stuffed into
his own bill. When a GOP colleague on his committee asked
him whether he knew a specific provision had been embedded


in the proposal
with his name on it,
Waxman snorted:
"You're asking me?"
The indignant
interrogator then
went on to question
the patriogsm of
anyone who dared
ask questions about
the climate change
tax scheme -- and
accused conservatives
of "rooting against the
country."
Now, Waxman is
. targeting the heads
of Deere, Caterpillar,
Verizon and AT&T o
'with "invitations"
they can't refuse to
testify at an April
21 hearing on their
public statements regarding Demcare-caused writedowns.
Waxman's fishing expedition letters sent out last week "asked"
the company heads to produce copious documentation.
Business execs are damned if they do disclose how the
costs of the new federal health care taxes will hit their bottom
line and damned if they don't. If they stay silent, they'll be
violating Securities and Exchange Commission disclosure
requirements passed by Congress after the Enron scandal. If
they talk, they'll be paraded in front of the camera like those
poor tobacco heads Waxman waxed more than 15 years ago.
Who's next? On Monday, Prudential said it would take a
$100 million charge in the first quarter thanks to Demcare. In
Colorado, the Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp. said the health
care law will cost $2 million a year starting in 2014. AK Steel
Corp., 3M and Valero Energy have all announced similar
writedowns. At this rate, if Waxman insists on hauling up
every last truth-teller in the marketplace, he'll be holding an
inquisition-a-thon a day.
And that would suit the Witch Hunter of Capitol Hill just
fine. If he isn't meddling, he isn't working. And if he isn't
using his powers to bully, bulldoze or bankrupt his enemies,
he is failing the gods of progressivism.

Last year's Battle winner takes the stage Friday


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

Visitors to the Levy County Fair can expect to
have their ears delighted and their need to shake a
leg to good ol' country music fulfilled by local and
professional musical acts all weekend.
This is the first year acts from Mel Tillis Enterprise
will be performing at the fair. Newcomer "Kenyon
Lockry will'perform' on the main stage Friday night
at 9 p.m. Lockry was recognized by Mel Tillis
and invited to be a part of Mel Tillis Enterprise in
2006. Since then, he has recorded two albums and
performed at the Grand Ole Opry, which he; calls a
"dream come.true."
The 2008 Levy County Fair Battle of the Bands
winner will get their chance to perform as the opening
act for Kenyon Lockry Friday night.
Thicker Than Water is a Williston band, ahd many
of the band members have been playing together for
20 or more years. The band competed with seven
other groups in the last Levy County Fair to, win the
2008 Battle of the Bands.
The band is made up of family -and can be seen
almost every weekend playing all over north central
Florida, especially in Williard's Restaurant and
Lounge in Morriston. (;
Danny Moore, the band's lead guitar and a
vocalist, said the members are excited to be opening
up for one of Mel Tillis' groups.
Although they mainly cover country-top-40
music, Moore said there are also some origi ial songs
by the group's bass player and main soi writer,
Donny Moore.'
Besides Donny and Danny, the band also consists
of Tim Taft on rhythm guitar and a ocajist. and
Buddy Moore on drums.
The youngest in the group is Danny Modre's 21-
year-old son, Erik, who plays the piano and is the
lead vocalist. Moore said he's also "quite a dra\ " for
their band.
But Moore said he's not just being biased because
many of the group's fans say Erik is m re than
exceptional on the piano.


Thicker than Water will open for Kenyon Lockery at the Levy County Fair Friday night. The
above picture was used on the Fair's entertainment flier.


"That's not just me tooting his horn."
Moore said because Erik is just 21, he also comes
with the least amount of experience compared to the
other band members. And although they would all
love to get a recording contract and play on a bigger
stage, Moore said he really just wants to give his
son, who is currently pursuing a major in physical
therapy and considering a minor in music at Santa Fe
College, a chance to get involved in music and take it
as far as he wants.


The Fair's Saturday musical entertainment will be
kicked off by the karaoke finals at 11 a.m., followed
by this year's Battle of the Bands at 2 p.m.
At 6:30 p.m., the dance floor and the night's musical
entertainment will be opened up by Southbound Band,
another local group who can be seen performing at
local festivals. This will be followed at 9 p.m. by
McKinley & Beggs, who are both Florida-born men
and part of Mel Tillis Enterprise.


Fair, from Page 1A


Jones said there ha\e been more livestock entries
than ever before and those FFA and 4-H members
who demonstrate showmanship during the shows
can receive belt buckles from the fair.
Also to help celebrate 100 years of 4-H and to
bring attention to FFA. the first 200 FFA and 4-H
members wearing their club jacket or T-shirt can
receive free admission on Thursday from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m.
There will also be creative arts exhibits
and competitions and a judged baked-goods
competition.
And when it comes to entertainment on the main
stage, the fair will have it covered, starting with a
junior karaoke competition at 5 p.m. Thursday.
At 7 p.m., last year's Battle of the Bands winner
Thicker Than Water will open for Friday's main
entertainment Mel Tillis Enterprise's Kenyon LockrN.
On Saturday, the karaoke finals will begin at 11 a.m..
followed by Southbound Band at 6:30 p.m. and the
main entertainment McKinley & Beggs, again a Mel
Tillis Enterprise production, at 9 p.m.
Sunday will be Gospel day. with singing from
local groups like the Kirby Singers and A Touch of
Class, among others.
Jones said something that will be new this \ear


is the addition of a dance floor by the stage, and she
said everN one w% ith the fair association is hoping Mel
TiHlis himself may show up. especially since the 4th
Annual Mel Tillis and Friends Fishing Tournament
will be held the following weekend in Steinhatchee.
"Be on the lookout." Jones said.
Another big draw to the fair will be the Miss Levy
Count- Fair Pageant on Sunday starting at 6 p.m:.-
Jones said the Levy County Fair will be a, great,
cheap, family-friendly, four-day event.
It offers fair \ visitors and participants two things
that Levy County is all about,'she said.
First, it showcases the county's rural and
agricultural lifestyle.
No matter if we're involved in farming or raising
livestock, she said, the lifestyle still touches everyone
w ho lives in this county and we sometimes take it for
granted.
The second thing the fair will offer is "bang for
your buck," she said.
It's only $10 at the door each day and that $10
buys e\ erN thing but your food, she said.
Keeping the price low is one of the main
components the fair association agreed upon, she
said, because it offers families a full day's worth of
excitement for one low price.


Flood, from Page 1A

Jason Kennedy responded that businesses
could still purchase flood insurance.
FEMA's new flood maps show the ditches
around Bronson as being tribuitaries of the
McGee Branch stream and the .Waccasassa
River. The town disagrees with FEMA's
assessment and wants Mittaur & Associates
to develop scientific data sho% ing URS was
wrong in calling the ditches tributaries and in
not factoring in the full length of the ditches
or the water storage capacity of swamps
connected to them.
The town says the ditch that runs south of
town has one major blockage that prevents
storm water from flowing to Chunky Pond.
The last time the large pond held water was
during the tropical storms of 2004. Town
residents say Chunky Pond can store large
amounts of storm water and also is equipped
with manmade ditches and culverts on the
east and west sides to discharge water.

pollution, it would almost certainly raise the cost
of cars and gasoline and the cost of travel, further
dampening the economy. A recent report indicated
the 900,000 non-farm jobs lost in Florida over the
past three years won'tbe restored until 2014. The
prediction suggests to me that economists know the
economy won't really recover until Obama is no
longer in office.
I would like to believe Obama is dealing with
everyone on the "up and up" when he promised to
expand off shore oil drilling, but his trickery and
deceit-during his first full year in office leave me
wondering if this president can be trusted. Will
his announcement be implemented, or will we see
instead a quick step to one side as he moves away
from his promise.
Obama hasn't shown me that he has walking-


around sense. He hasn't demonstrated that he knows
that high gasoline prices could wreck the economy.
He hasn't shown me he is fully aware of the danger
of U.S. dependence on foreign oil or that he realizes
what might happen if the Middle East suddenly
explodes into a regional war.
What is Obama not telling us? I am quite sure he
wants something in return for his offer to expand oil
drilling. If he doesn't get what he wants, will the offer
to expand oil drilling be withdrawn or will it be more
limited?
I am not predicting Obama will try to horse trade.
I am not saying the announcement of expanded
oil drilling is a publicity stunt. It's still early in the
game. But Obama to this point has shown no interest
whatsoever in drilling for more oil. His policies
have been geared to doing exactly the opposite. It's


difficult to believe a zebra could change its stripes.
Let's wait to read the fine print.
If I am wrong and Obama suddenly changes into
an honest politician who does indeed desire to see
more oil and natural gas produced domestically;
and if the Democrats and Republicans in Congress
suddenly evolve into statesmen overnight, like a
modem day Cinderella, I will throw a one-man party
at my house to celebrate the birth of honesty and
integrity in Washington.
But I'm not holding my breath.
When I begin seeing millions of additional
barrels of oil produced domestically every day in.this
country without having to pay higher gasoline and
diesel prices to achieve that goal, I will breathe a sigh
of relief and wish Obama well in his retirement.


Steans, from Page 6A


Another budgetary trick in the bill is the creation of the Community.
Living Assistance Services and Support (CLASS) program, which will help
participants pay for assisted living services. A new entitlement, it is projected
to take in $70.2 billion over the first 10 years, again creating the allusion of
deficit reduction.
However, after 10 years of surpluses, CLASS will begin to pay out more
than it takes in until collapsing from insolvency. Senator Kent Conrad (D-ND)
likened the program to "a Ponzi scheme of the first order, the kind of thing that
Bermie Madoff would have been proud of."
The bill charges the Independent Payment Advisory Board with cutting $15


billion from Medicare. This unelected board's cuts are automatic, unless three-
fifths of the Senate votes to prevent them. What are they going to cut?
Finally, there are direct costs associated with the bill that were not included
because they would be subject to future appropriations. Among these costs are
the $10 billion to hire more than 16,000 IRS agents to enforce the mandates
on every American. Then there is $55 billion for new bureaucracies to run this
government expansion of health care.
The savings, the taxes, and the spending cuts in this bill are not credible. As
' a deficit reduction scheme, it is designed to fail. This measure will increase the
deficit, and it will imperil the fiscal stability of our nation.

Ag commissioner candidate takes tractor on campaign trail


Story and photo by Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

A man driving a tractor through Levy may not
be out of the ordinary, but one man in particular last
week was attempting to get a little more attention
than usual.
Randy Hatch, whose family has farmed in
Branford for the last seven generations, is driving
his McCormick CX 90 tractor from Pensacola to
the Keys and back for his campaign as democratic
candidate for Commissioner of Agriculture and
Consumer Services. He said this "Florida at 20
miles per hour" campaign is his way of listening
to the people and gathering information from the
voters about the concerns for the state by stopping at
restaurants, coffee shops, courthouses and more.
Hatch, who was in Chiefland April 1, said he
started his career in politics on a tractor during the
1977 Florida farm strike that brought 10,000 tractors
to the steps of the Florida state capitol. Hatch said he
was fourth in line during the strike and became the
"poster child" of the family farm crisis when he was
selected to write the first draft of the Florida Right
to Farm Law.
The Right to Farm Law was passed in 1980 and
allows farmers to stay on their land instead of being
forced off by frivolous lawsuits.
Hatch said he is the most qualified for the job
because he is the only candidate who is a farmer. On
his family farm they raise corn, peanuts, timber, hay,
cattle, and Hatch is most involved in the dolomite
mining business.
He has also served as a Suwannee County
commissioner for eight years and is the immediate
past president of the Florida Association of
Counties.
He said he is running for this position because he
is tired of the way government is being run.
"I'm disappointed with government in general,
especially the incumbents," he said.
He said what he has heard the most through his
travels is that people think the government does not
listen anymore.
People say what they're most dissatisfied with
is the fact that no one in politics listens, they feel
their vote doesn't count, there is no protection from

"If somebody stomps on our
Constitution, it gets my dander up."

Chiefland March 31.


anything, and there are no constitutional rights left,
he said.
"There has been an egregious trampling of our
constitutional rights in the last 20 years and it's
gotten to be downright fascist," he said.
"If somebody stomps on our Constitution, it gets
my dander up."
The people are adamant and they're saying
they've had enough, he said.
On the issues:
- Hatch says the government talks too much about
becoming energy independent and reducing our
carbon footprint, but a plan of action has yet to be
devised. He stands by his belief government should
get out of competition with the public for fuel and


instead allow a level playing field for free market
capitalism.
- He was a charter member of the Florida
Association of Counties Statewide Water Policy Task.
Force and believes private enterprise has no business
with the public water supply.
"Local and regional agencies, assisted by the state,
can best guarantee every Floridian has access to clean
and safe drinking water without the threat of creating
a water OPEC and predatory pricing," according to
Hatch's press packet.
- Land development and growth is acceptable when
it's done in a reasonable way, he said. In other words:
Develop in appropriate areas and where it needs to be
while respecting property rights and property lines.

Levy softball teams continue dominance


williston pitcher ion stamper tnrows a seventn-inning strilKe.

Williston outlasts GHS, 3-2


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

It's most always better to be lucky
than good. Against Gainesville High
March 31, Williston was just good
enough.
The Lady Red Devils got an early
home run from Dayna Hunn and
withstood a late rally by the Lady
Hurricanes behind solid pitching from
ace Tori Stamper to win 3-2.
Hunn's first-inning home run came
with one out and leadoff hitter Crissy
Rawls on second base. Rawls had
reached first base on an infield error to
open the game, and had subsequently
stolen second base.
Hunn fouled off a couple of pitches
before taking a fastball from Gainesville


sophomore pitcher Jessie Ely over the
left-field fence. Williston led 2-0.
Williston increased its lead to 3-0 in
the top of the fifth inning, and the rally
began with two out. Rawls produced an
infield hit and stole second before Angie
Wilcox lined a base hit into left field.
Stamper silenced the Gainesville bats
for the most part through four innings,
striking out three while allowing a
bloop single and a walk. But the Lady
Hurricanes sent five batters to the plate
in the fifth inning, scoring twice.
Stephanie Gibbs and Skylar Swanson
drew back-to-back walks to begin the
inning, and both players advanced a
base on a sacrifice bunt by Amanda
Donovan. Ashley Burt then lined a base

Williston over Palatka 2-I


By Ryan Butler
Correspondent

Williston's William Colina
predicted his team would take the
lead in their game against Palatka.
He did all he could to make sure it
would happen.
Behind Colina's relief efforts
and clutch hitting in the bottom of
the sixth inning, the Red Devils
came from behind to win 2-1 at
Santa Fe High School on March
31.
"I had a feeling something was
going to happen," Colina said.
"I knew one of those innings we
were going to break out."
While Palatka pitcher Logan
Barber shut down Williston's
batters for much of the game,
Colina was able to do the same in
a relief appearance. Coming in for
starter Max White in the fourth,
Colina struck out the first batter
he faced and held the Panthers
hitless while giving up one walk
and no hits over four innings.
"William felt good," head
coach, Jim Smith said. "He
thought he could win it for us and
he did."
Colina said he kept his fastball
lower than in his past few starts
and that prevented Palatka's
batters from getting a handle on
his pitches. *
Barber held the Red Devils
hitless until the sixth, retiring 11
straight batters from the second
inning until the end of the fifth.
Justin Baker snapped the
streak in a major way'in the sixth,


vviliiam Lroina
leading off the inning with a
double. Lawrence Jones than laid
down a beautiful bunt along the
first-base line for a single, putting
runners on first and third with no
outs. Austin Etheridge's sacrifice
fly in the next at bat scored Baker
and tied the game.
Caleb Medeiros followed with
a single, giving the Red Devils the
first lead of the game.
"We've been hitting the ball
hard and we finally got it to go,"
Smith said. "It's a great confidence
builder that we can come back."
Barber retired the next three
batters but the damage had already
been done. Colina gave up a lead-
off walk in the seventh but retired
the next three Panthers to preserve
the win.
Colina came in to the game
earlier than expected to replace

Chiefland blasts Newberry


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

.If they do not already know, area
opponents of the Chiefland softball
team might want to take note of a
fundamental premise of this year's
team: make a mistake, and you will
pay a price. Bobble 'a ball, or throw to
the wrong base, or forget how many
outs there are, and there will be costs
involved.
Newberry found that out the hard
way Thursday.
Chiefland capitalized on a multitude
of Lady Panther errors en route to a tidy,
8-0 win in Newberry.
Janessa Barrios' run-scoring double
was the big hit of a five-run second
inning that paved the way to Chiefland's


15th win in 17 tries this season. The real
story of the game, however, came on the
base paths and not at the plate. By the
time the second inning came to a close,
the Lady Indians already had double
digit steals, and had already driven their
opponents batty with aggressive base
running.
Chiefland Head Coach Ginger Fuller
said the plan is for the team to take
advantage of every single opportunity
given to it.
"Every time they throw it to the
wrong base, or a ball hits the ground on
an error or even a half an error, we want
to capitalize on it," he said. "If they are
going to even think about giving us a
base, we are going to take it. Our girls

Branford gets past Chiefland


Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor

There were plenty of bright spots
in Chiefland's 4-3, eight-inning loss to
Branford on Friday. The team got strong
pitching from both Jacob Reidy and Adam
Burton, and got a big, clutch hit from
infielder Josh Martinez to tie the score late
in the game..
But there were breakdowns as well
- particularly base running - that left the
team with a stinging district loss late in the
season.
Josh Hanson's slow roller to shortstop
scored brother Jake with the winning run
before a large crowd in Branford.
Chiefland took a 1-0 lead in the bottom
of the first inning when Clenton Wasson
drove a pitch from Branford pitcher Josh
Hanson over the center-field fence for a
home run. Branford's Sam Arnold returned
the favor in the bottom of the inning, taking
a pitch from Reidy over the left center-field


fence.
Parrish Parnell got the Chiefland half of
the second inning off to a good start when
he reached base on a hard hit ground ball
up the middle. He advanced to second,
and then to third, on wild pitches. Reidy
walked, and then Martinei hit a ground
ball to third base. Branford third baseman
Jordan Gaylord threw home in time to get
ParnelL who flattened Buccaneers catcher
Jacob Hall on the play.
But Jonathan O'Steen singled up the
middle to score Reidy, and Chiefland
regained the lead, 2-1.
Mason Tyler led offBranford's half of the
third inning with a double to straightaway
center field. One out later, Kevin Van Ash
drew a walk offReidy, and Gaylord followed
with an infield hit to load the bases. Jake
Hanson then drew a disputed walk to force
in Tyler and tie the game.
One batter later, Dalton Lamb gave

It happens on Tuesday


By Rick Burnham
Editor

Everything meaningful in this county
happens on a Tuesday. Everything business
related, community related, government
related, and sports related happens on a
Tuesday.
That's the way it seems, anyway.
What's the big deal about Tuesdays? That's
the day the rubber meets the road here at the Levy
County Journal. That's the day that we begin
before the sun comes up, and end long after the vast
majority of people in the Atlantic Time Zone have
gone to bed. It's production day, when the paper
comes together. Fifteen-hour days are routine. Most
of the time, it is more like 17. That's okay - I am
not complaining. It is the life I chose, and I embrace
it much like I do with my basset hound.
Trouble is, everything meaningful in this
county happens on a Tuesday, and, under normal
circumstances, we cannot free anyone up to go out


and cover the events. On rare occasions we can go
out for a moment or two, but we certainly can't
hang around.
So I was sitting at my desk hard at work
on March 23, when Williston residents Mark
and Evelyn Poupard took their granddaughter
Madelynn to a Red Devil game played in honor of
Tiffany Poupard, Mark and Evelyn's daughter and
Madelynn's mother. If you do not know the story,
Tiffany died in an automobile accident a little more
than a year ago. She was an avid Williston Red
Devil fan, and sister of current Red Devil Andrew
Poupard.
Madelynn threw out the first pitch, and players,
coaches and fans wore lime green jerseys in honor
of Tiffany. Lime green was her favorite color.
I would likely have worn one too, but I was here
at my desk, unable to get away. Because it was
played on a Tuesday.
Do I hate the schedule maker? Of course not.
They don't run the athletic programs at Levy
County schools with an eye toward the Levy County


Journal. They have bigger fish to fry.
It was just the luck of the draw that the Poupard's
big night happened on a Tuesday. And our luck here
at the Journal leaves much to be desired.
If there is a big game between division rivals, it
will happen on a Tuesday. A special tribute during a
game? Tuesday. The district playoffs will begin on a
Tuesday. If someone were to throw a perfect game,
it will happen on a Tuesday. It honestly would not
surprise me come fall if all the football games were
moved to Tuesday.
Because everything happens on a Tuesday.
If the space shuttle had to make an emergency
landing on Main Street here in Chiefland, it would
happen on a Tuesday. If the president showed up
to speak to the rotary club in Williston, it would
happen on a Tuesday. If all the water in Fanning
Springs turned into Jim Beam and the park rangers
had to fight to keep people from jumping in, it
would happen on a Tuesday.
One day I am going to need therapy, and
Tuesday are going to be the primary.reason.


Chiefland's Clenton Wasson slugs
Indians, from Page 1 B
Branford the lead when he hit a
ground ball to second base. Chiefland's
Tim Reidy tossed the ball to second to
force Hanson, but Van Ash scored to
put Branford up 3-2. Branford might
have scored more, but Wasson made a
fine running catch of a ball off the bat
of Kyle Stebbins to end the inning.
Chiefland threatened in both the
fourth and fifth innings, but couldn't
tie the game. Parnell and Martinez
collected base hits in the fourth inning,
but Branford turned a double play in
the middle to ruin the rally. Wasson
lined a two-out double down the left
field line in the fifth, and Marquis
Greene followed with a hard hit ground
ball' that Branford' shortstop Danny
Johnston couldn't handle. But the
Indians could not manage the key hit to
bring the runners home.
Meanwhile, Chiefland was shutting
down the Buccaneer attack. Burton

struck out the side in the fourth, getting
Josh Hanson on a curve and Mason
Tyler on a fast ball. Martinez made a
sparkling play on a ball hit by,Arfiold
to begin the fifth inning, and Bo
Beauchamp dug his throw out of the
dirt to complete the out.
Chiefland finally evened the score
in the top of the sixth. Reidy reached
first base on a dropped third strike to
begin the inning, and advanced to
second on a wild pitch. Martinez then
delivered a line single to right field to
score Reidy and tie the game at three
apiece. Martinez got as far as second
in the inning, but the Indians could not
bring him home..
Stebbins reached base on a hit
to begin the bottom of the sixth, but
Burton made a slick fielding play on
a sharp ground by Josh Hanson and
made a play at, second base. Parnell
threw out Hanson on an attempted steal


at second, and the two teams went to
the seventh tied at 3-3.
Wasson put Chiefland in great
position to take the lead in the top of the
seventh.' The speedy senior walked to
begin the inning, and then stole second
base. The throw from Hall sailed into
center field, and Wasson advanced to
third with no outs.
Greene then lofted a high fly ball
into right field that popped out. of
the glove of Jake Hanson. Hanson
recovered quickly, throwing a strike to
the plate to nail Wasson.
Branford had an even better
opportunity to win the game in their
half of the seventh. Burton hit Tyler
to begin the inning, but Parnell made
a great play on a fouled bunt one
batter later. Arnold reached base on an
infield error to put runners at first and
second, but Gaylord hit a sharp ground
to Martinez, who flipped to Tim Reidy


at second. Reidy's throw to first was in
the dirt, but Beauchamp scooped it up
to send the game to extra innings.
Jake Hanson reached base with a
ball that caromed off Burton to begin
the Branford eighth. Burton struck out
Jake Hanson, but Stebbins lined a hit
into right field to put runners at first and
third. Chiefland intentionally walked
Johnston to load the bases, but Josh
Hanson's slow roller to short scored his
brother with the winning run.
Afterward, Chiefland Head Coach
Kyle Parnell said his team could have
run the bases better, but gave credit to
the Branford team for, a well-played
game.
"We made a couple of base-running
mistakes that cost us a couple of runs,"
he said. "But give Branford credit - it
was one of our lower run totals of the
year, so they did a good job on defense
and pitching."

who had been playing over toward right
field.
Gibbs and Swanson both scored
easily, but Wilcox's relay to second
baseman Kayla Thorrington was right
on the money, and Thorrington's throw
to Hunn at third base nailed Burt. The
inning ended with Williston up 3-2.
Gainesville mounted threats in
both the sixth and seventh innings,
but Stamper settled down both times,
striking qut two batters in each frame.
Gibbs was on second base when Burt
popped out to second base to end the
game.
Afterward, Williston Head Coach
Billy Rodgers said he was encouraged
by the win, even though he thought the
team did not play particularly well.
"We just kind of hung in there
tonight," he said. "To be honest with
you, we got kinda lucky. But sometimes
it's better to be lucky than good. Tonight
was one of those nights - we just kinda
went through the motions. They were
just a little relaxed tonight, and that
might not be a bad thing."
Rodgers said he limited Stamper's
pitch selection in an effort to save her
arm for the upcoming district playoffs.
"Ididnotallowhertothrowanything Williston third baseman Dayna Hunn throws out GHS base-runner Lauren Botu Dose in the first inning.

"I didn't give her those other pitches

She did a great job with a minimal pitch
selection."..

cushion.

And gone they were against Newberry. Taylore Fuller
was hit with a pitch to begin the game, and the super
sophomore promptly stole second and third. She would
eventually come home on a ground ball by Christen Trail
to put Chiefland up 1-0.
Newberry's world quickly unraveled in the top of the
second. Shelby Mills reached base on an infield hit, and
advanced to third when Haley Gerhard reached base on an
infield error. Barrios then brought Mills home with a blast
to the right center-field wall. Fuller walked again, and
Amber Richardson hit a run-scoring single in the inning.
Chiefland scored three times in the inning on wild pitches
and passed balls. The Lady Indians led 6-0 at the end of
their half of the second.
That was more than enough for Trail, who did not walk
a batter and benefitted from a number of key plays by
the Chiefland defense. Amie Biehl made back-to-back
Stops in the bottom of the second inning, and was on the
:LA . receiving end of a throw by center-fielder Kaylee Ecker to
nail a base runner in the third. More importantly, Ginger
Fuller said, Biehl's leadership came through loud and
clear in the game.
"It is not just making good plays, it's leadership,"
" ,' -;" ." " the coach said. "It's picking up at third when your third
baseman just came in to field a ball. No one has to tell her
, . "to cover third - she just does it. Tonight she really showed
/ that senior leadership."
Despite the rout, Fuller said, there is plenty for the
team to work on as the district tournament approaches.
"There were a couple of times we could have taken

times we bobbled a ball and could have gotten an out at
- , _first and we didn't. These are basic fundamentals that we
have to get better at. That is fine in this district, but our
F-* intent is to make it to the regionals and beyond. We are
not going to be able to get away with that."
* . Fuller said that the March 26 8-4 loss to Williston may
have been a blessing in disguise for her team. -
-"It was a good headshrinker for them," he said. "They
" - ,needed that, because they needed something to keep them
. - humble. They have been killing everybody and we needed
A '" ' '"/ something to keep us grounded."
il: ' Keeping the team in the right mindset has proven to


be a learning experience for the Chiefland coaching staff
- which consists of Fuller, husband Randy, and Brian
Gore.
There are key differences, Fuller says, between
motivating girls and boys to play well.
� "We have found out that you can get guys all amped
up and they will go out and produce," she said. "You can't
do that with girls. Girls get nervous and implode. They.get
so amped up that they just freeze. The first Williston game
they were so scared before they ever walked on the field.
....."Now we don't do that. We push them to focus on
'their game. We do not allow them to interact with anyone
Amrnie Biehl makes a throw to beyond the fence. I think that helps. They are not even
-first base. She was lauded for allowed to acknowledge their parents, and I think they
her defense during the game like that."

Time to apply


for hog permits

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) is accepting applications
through April 12 during its Phase I random drawing
for quota permits to hunt wild hogs on selected
wildlife management areas.
These quota permits are for hog-only hunts
(both still and dog), where hunters can use modem
firearms. Many of the new summer hunts are night-
only hunts. In addition, permits for the dog hunts
allow hunting with up to three dogs at a time, two
hunters and one gun.
On several WMAs, quota permits are required
during many hunts. A quota is the maximum number
of hunters allowed on a particular WMA. The quota
helps prevent overcrowding and provides a better
quality and safer hunting experience. Quotas also
help control game harvests, and they are set based
on an area's size, habitat, game populations and reg
ulations.
Worksheets for wild hog quota permit applications
are available at MyFWC.com/Hunting under
"Limited Entry Hunts."
Applying for these quota hunt permits is
automated through the FWC's Total Licensing
System, but you must have an up-to-date $26
management area permit (unless exempt) before
doing so. To apply, take a worksheet to any license
agent or tax collector's office or submit an application
at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com by midnight (EDT)
April 12 during the first phase of the wild hog quota
application period.
The FWC will post results for Phase I of the
random drawing no later than April 22 at MyFWC.
com/Hunting under "Limited Entry Hunts."
The application period for Phase II of the wild
hog quota hunt permits is April 27 through May
6 and also will be conducted by random drawing.
Only those who were not drawn in Phase I will be
eligible to apply during Phase II.
The FWC will issue any remaining quota permits
on a first-come, first-served basis during the Phase III
application period, beginning at 10 a.m. (EDT) May
25. Anyone can apply during Phase III, regardless
of whether a person was successful in drawing a
permit during Phase I or II.
Go to MyFWC.com/Hunting for more
information or to learn about other limited entry
hunts, application periods or deadlines.

Bass are on the beds and on our minds


By Bob Wattendorf
Florida Fish & Wildlife
Conservation Commission
Spring is here, and the bass are on their beds. The
males have been fanning out beds on firm lake bottoms
with plenty of nearby vegetation. If they are successful
in their amorous intents to entice a female to join
them, they'll soon be spending time guarding the nest
and fanning tens of thousands of eggs to keep them
oxygenated.
This annual ritual is dependent not only on the
sexual appeal of the individual bass, but also on the
quality of the environment, the vagaries of weather,
and impacts of man.
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) fisheries biologists are charged with sustaining
fish populations while providing recreational
opportunities for more than 1'.4 million anglers, who
enjoy more than 24 million bass fishing trips a year in
-Florida and bolster the economy by $-1.4 billion.
The FWC faces a huge challenge that requires
different approaches in many of Florida's 7,700 lakes,
'which comprise 3 million acres of water, plus 12,000
'miles .of rivers, streams and canals. FWC biologists
Work with many partners to ensure water quality and
healthy populations of bass. The FWC also conducts
major habitat-enhancement projects and controls the
spread of nonnative plants. The FWC's two freshwater
'fish hatcheries provide quality, disease-free, genetically
appropriate bass for stocking when needed.
These biologists modify fishing regulations when
necessary to ensure quality bass fishing now and in the
future. Wildlife officers enforce the rules. Outreach
-efforts help reconnect Floridians of all ages with
-nature to lead happier, healthier and smarter lifestyles,
following the advice of the Get Outdoors Florida!
Coalition and the Children and Nature Network.
Biologists from the FWC's Fish .and Wildlife
Research Institute and the University of Florida are
conducting a statewide largemouth bass research study.

Scientists hope to learn how frequently bass are caught
and harvested and more about the size range of fish
caught. Results of this study will help them manage the
fishery for quality and trophy-sized largemouth bass.
Bass in 30 lakes throughout the state have been
tagged with small, yellow tags along the back of the
fish, just below the dorsal fin. These tags carry a printed
telephone number, e-mail address, tag number and
reward value.
Anglers should carefully examine all bass caught in
Florida lakes for reward tags, as biologists have tagged
fish from lakes throughout the state. To claim their
reward, anglers are encouraged to report these tags to
the FWC Angler Tag Return Hotline (800-367-4461).
The FWC is also working with BountyFishing.com to
gain additional information about big bass being caught
throughout Florida and is monitoring results from all
permitted bass tournaments.
With all of this going on, the FWC has decided it is
time to have a long-term management plan for black
bass (largemouth bass, shoal bass, spotted bass and
Suwannee bass). To learn more about the plan, visit
MyFWC.com/Fishing. You can help by completing
the online survey.
Don't forget, your fishing license fees and excise
taxes paid on fishing tackle and motorboat fuels fund
all of these efforts. The funds are returned to the FWC
from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service based on the
number of paid license-holders.
To thank anglers for their contributions and to work
with industry partners, the FWC is offering a special
5-year freshwater fishing license bonus program. Until
3,000 boxes filled with free tackle, publications and
fishing accessories are distributed, anyone buying a 5-
year freshwater fishing license will receive the bonus
automatically in the mail. A 5-year license costs just
$79, plus a convenience fee, but in return you know the
fees won't increase while you have your license, and
you don't need to worry about renewing for five years.
Five-year licenses are available online at MyFWC.

WALKING HUMBLY WITH YOUR GOD


I didn't know a mufferless station wagon could
pass an 18-wheeler on one of those interstate loops,
but at 14, I reckon I didn't know a lot of things. I did
know if I wanted to see 15, I'd better get "Drunken
Yee-Haw man" to let me out of this hot-
rod.
I noticed my best friend Ray had his
fingernails dug into his arm rest, too.
He shot me a "you really know how to
pick 'em" look. Then he shouted over
the scream of the engine, "Hey man, you
can just let us out here."
That Yee-Haw fellow, who seemed
to be using his thumbs to navigate,
dangerously took one of them off the .
wheel to scratch his greasy mane before
slurring, "I thought you little dudes said
you lived in south Memphis?"
Before you know it, we're standing
in a strange neighborhood watching Yee- But AI
Haw screech off into oncoming traffic. wfti
I wanted to kiss the ground. However,
clearly there was a long walk ahead of
us, so we lumbered off. We made it home around
midnight to find both of our moms waiting out on the
stoop, hands wringing and feet tapping; ready to spit
nails and chew our tails.
Once inside I tried to convince my mom it was
Ray who'd talked me into sneaking off downtown to
.that rock concert. He'd talked me into staying when
our ride threatened to leave. He'd showed me how to
swipe beer from unwatched coolers. He even made
me drink them!
"That Ray," I exclaimed, "I might've ended up a


good kid if it weren't for him!" I went to bed that
night with a fitting finale for the day - grounded for
life, and pretty confident Ray had been down the
street giving an identical sob story to his mom about
me.
J always hated when
I got grounded for lif'e.
Sometimes it could last for
days. Thankfully, the next
morning Ray's mom didn't
feel like going out, so she
promised to un-ground
Ray if he walked to the
store and got her a coke.
When my momma heard,
she feared I'd expound
on the injustice of it all.
Her motherly instincts had
never been more in trine. I
nyway... did so for hours.
h Guy Sheeld4 She was resisting pretty
good until I resorted to plan
B.
"Mom," I said reluctantly, "If you'll de-ground
me, I'll potentially consider the possibility of
hypothetically cleaning my room."
She just couldn't help herself. "Deal," she blurted
out.
I ran to tell my little brother Heath the good news,
and of course, to strong-arm him into doing the
cleaning. "Only if it comes down to it," I promised.
To make a long story short, by nightfall Ray and I
were out running the streets again.
But anyway- It's a miracle I survived those


rebellious years of my life. Some people may say
I was just sowing my "wild oats," but that whole
concept is a lame diversion from the truth. I only
need three little letters to describe what I was doing,
"SIN." If I had some kind of wild hormone thing
going, I should have found some different avenues
for them, like school activities or sports. Maybe I
could've used all that extra energy to do something
good for God's kingdom?
My poor mom did her best, but I was just out of
control, and not a'day goes by I don't feel the sting
of those wasted years. I'm so thankful God finally
humbled me and taught me to stop plotting my course
with my thumbs. Yee-Haw's thrill ride won't get you
home. It'll land you somewhere you don't want to
go: grounded for eternity. Blaming Ray won't work
with God either.
A journey toward a life worth living must begin
with one small step, albeit an important one: to call
on Jesus out of a humble heart. Let Him take you by
the hand and teach you to walk in the right direction.
(He has shown you, 0 man, what is good; And what
does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love
mercy, And to walk humbly with your God? Micah
6:8 KJV)
Take it from someone who's been down a lot of
roads, walking with the Lord is much better than
riding with the devil.
