Crowds increase for Levy County Fair


Story and photos by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

The most successful Levy County
Fair in the past three years attracted
about 7,000 visitors last week, with
3,000 of them filling the fairgrounds on
Saturday night.
"We were more than pleased. We
were tickled pink," said Fair President
Debra Jones, who is in her first year as
the top executive. "It brought a lot of
people to Levy County."
It became apparent that most of the
people attending the fair were young
families with children or teen-agers.
The rides in the midway were the big
attraction.
Jones said the fair's policy of
allowing unlimited riding for a single
entry fee at the gate proved to be a lure
for those who love to ride the rides.
"Someone came to me and said 'you
mean we get to ride all the rides without
paying, and watch all the shows'?"
Jones said.
The fair took place on a 40-acre field
at Williston Municipal Airport off U.S.
41. The city council leased the land to
the fair association at no charge. Since
Jones sits as council president, someone
else from the fair association had to
make presentations to the county.
All the fair officials, including
Executive Director Jim Smith, were
volunteers. They traveled to a county
fair convention at their own expense
to learn how to organize and run a fair.
Smith traveled to Las Vegas for the
international convention of fairs at his
own expense.
The fair was not cheap to run. The big
rental tents cost the fair $9,000 alone.
But the fairgrounds don't belong to the


The Levy County Fair, which was held at the Williston Municipal Airport last Thursday through Sunday,
offered several rides such as the one pictured, and attracted about 7,000 people over the weekend.


association, which is still looking for a
permanent home. The fair is in Williston
because that's where the association got
the best deal. It would like to own or
have a long-term lease on property to
allow for a pavilion to be constructed
and other permanent buildings.
"Now that we are successful there
are people talking to us about that," she
said.
The livestock show was also held
under a tent, but it was a small show
compared to the Suwannee River Youth


Livestock Show and Sale.
Tyler Beauchamp of Bronson FFA
won- grand champion with his heifer
while Nathan Thisse of Osceola 4-H
Club was reserve champion.
The grand champion steer was
exhibited by Kate Douberly of Alachua
County while the reserve champion
steer was exhibited by Beauchamp.
Beauchamp was also first in heifer
and steer showmanship.
He is no stranger to competition.
"He can't remember the first time he


saw a cow show. He was in diapers,"
said his mother Cheryl Beauchamp,
who happens to be principal of Bronson
Elementary School.
Tyler competes at the state fair in
Tampa, the Suwannee River Fair, Lake
City, Tallahassee and the Levy County
Fair.
"He's got a daddy that's a cow
person and loves it," she said, referring
to husband Mickey Beauchamp.

Official says flood maps for Long Pond may be wrong


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


. Chiefland Building and Zoning Director Bill
Hammond said a private consultant working on new
federal flood maps for the city has acknowledged
some of its data on the preliminary maps may be
inaccurate.
Hammond said some of his own property in the
Long Pond area appears to have been incorrectly
identified as being a flood hazard area. He said he has
surveys of his property indicating the elevations in
some locations are much higher than the elevations set
by URS Corporation.
The company, hired by the Suwannee River Water
Management District in cooperation with the Federal
Emergency Management Agency to update federal
flood insurance maps, is sending surveyors back to the
Long Pond area to recalculate elevations and review


their data.
"I'm sure they are going

to look at everybody,"


Hammond said.
Commissioners voted 5-0 to send URS, SRWMD
and FEMA a letter expressing the city's concerns about
the new digital flood maps and asking URS to review
its data.
The city also expressed support for the Town of
Bronson in its effort to have URS review new digital
flood maps that place the western business district
along U.S. 27A in a flood hazard zone. The town has
hired an engineering firm to begin reviewing data with
a potential challenge in mind.
Hammond said URS is only interested in real survey
data. If the elevations prove to be other than what URS
claims, it will change its flood zone maps.
Hammond said the URS maps have identified large
areas around the edge of Long Pond as being flood
prone areas that were previously not included on
flood hazard maps. But he said the maps have to be
wrong. Hammond said the last 100-year flood event
was during the 2004 tropical storms that passed over
Levy County, and those storms did not fill Long Pond.


Crash kills I
A Trenton area "oman was killed
Saturday between Chiefland and
Bronson when her car ran off U.S. 27A
and struck two trees.
FHP officers said Kell J. Allen. 52,
"1as pronounced dead at the scene at
10:07 a.m. Investigators %\ere not sure
why the car left the road.
She was not hearing g a seatbelt.
Investigators said the vehicle left
the right shoulder of U.S. 27A north of
Count) Road 339 and struck a tree \\inh
its left front. The vehicle traveled a few
more feet and struck another tree with
its left front before rotating slightlN in a
counter clockwise motion and coming to
rest against the second tree facing east.
FHP said her cell phone was still in
her purse. which means she was not
texting or talking on the phone at the
tune of the wreck. She had not been
drinking.


He said the storms added water, but the water soon
drained away and the pond went dry.
Hammond said he doesn't believe the pond will
ever receive enough water on a regular basis to remain
full, much less flood. He said he has told URS officials
that population growth in this area, the addition of
hundreds of residential wells and the growth of farm
irrigation wells will probably keep the pond dry. The
pond is tied to the Floridian Aquifer and is dry most of
the time now. He doubts that Long Pond could reach
the levels forecast by the revised digital flood hazard
maps.
Once the new federal digital flood hazard maps
are adopted, the city would have to adopt a flood
insurance ordinance. The ordinance would require new
development to build above the 100-year flood zone
and businesses and residences in the zone to purchase
federal flood insurance if they have a federally backed
mortgage on their structure.
Hammond said it is not possible to purchase federal
flood insurance without an ordinance in place.

When it comes to being patriotic,
Chiefland Police Chief Robert Douglas
will tell anyone we owe it all to our
veterans.
For his outspokenness and for
his devotion to making the streets of
Chiefland a safer place, the American
Legion Post 236 of Levy County
honored Douglas with the Officer of
the Year award. Three of the American
Legion Post 236 members presented the
plaque to Douglas in his office Monday.
The sergeant-at-arms read Commander
Dwight Fields' letter of recommendation
for Douglas to receive the National Law
Enforcement Officer of the Year Awady.


"Chief Douglas has shown exemplary
devotion to duty," the letter read. "The
Chiefland Police Department, while
under his direction, is one of the best run
small police departments in the United
States. His innovative programs have
helped make this department efficient,
community oriented and respected by
the community. He has saved the citizens
money, while holding the department to
a very high standard."
The American Legion members also
thanked Douglas for the work he has
done spearheading the movement to
bring a Veterans Day parade to Levy
County.
Douglas has presented the idea to

Williston hires firms

to build municipal

solar power plant
By Terry Witt
Staff Writer
Williston City Council members voted unanimously last week to
hire two engineering firms that will handle planning and design of a
$40 million solar energy complex that would power the city.
Lagan Engineering and Environmental Services was hired to
perform a feasibility study that would prove the solar plant could
serve the city's electrical power needs.
Integrated Engineering Solutions, Inc. was hired to design the
solar power plant that would be constructed at Williston Municipal
Airport.
The solar power plant would be the first of its kind in Florida.
The city believes the plant could produce enough power to supply
the city's needs plus excess power that could be sold to Progress
Energy.
If the system is constructed, the city would remain connected
to Progress Energy power lines. The city would sell electricity to
Progress Energy during the daylight hours and buy back energy at
night when no solar energy is being generated.
The city believes it can acquire green energy grants, perhaps
from the federal stimulus program, to build the plant at no cost to
the city.
City Manager Marcus Collins predicted the solar plant would
save residents 30 to 40 percent on their monthly power bills.
The city's biggest challenge was going through the process
of selecting engineering firms that could design and engineer a
commercial solar plant of that size. Those firms are now on board.
Williston most negotiate the engineering contract. By the time that
work is finished, the city hopes the feasibility study is completed,
which means Integrated Engineering Solutions, Inc. can begin filing
grant applications.

every city commission in the county, all
of which have unanimously agreed it is a
good idea.
He said he planned to present the
parade request as a formal agenda item for
the county commission meeting Tuesday,
and he said Monday he has no doubt it will
pass.
Douglas said he first became supportive
of veterans because his father served in
WWII on the destroyer the USS Hubbard.
He said although his father didn't speak
about the experience much, what was
talked about made Douglas very proud and
appreciative that he is an American.


"I want to do everything I can to make
sure this nation stays strong," he said.
"Our veterans are the reason we're
standing here."
Commander Fields' letter stated that
Douglas' "strong support for veterans
has created new interest and concern for
veterans in this area."
But Douglas said his movement for
a Veterans Day parade was not to bring
attention to himself and that he never
expected to be honored with the Officer of
the Year award.
"I don't want anything out of this; I
want it for them,:' he said.

Trespasser threatens youth at church function


* A church function was interrupted by an
intoxicated trespasser last week.
Christopher James Chitty, 33, with no listed
address, was trespassed from the Holy Family Catholic
Church in Williston on March 26 for interfering with
a church function.
On April 5, Chitty again approached the church,
while the trespass warning was still active. This time
he allegedly ran to the pastor's house and was hiding
in the doorway.
The complainant said that Chitty was extremely
intoxicated and the arrest report stated Chitty had a
strong odor of alcohol.
According to the report, Chitty disrupted a teen
function at the church's pole barn and became upset
when he was asked to leave and punched the pole
barn, which injured his hand.
Allegedly, Chitty told the teens present that they
better pray because he will be coming back for their
lives.

Deputy crashes on way to call


By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

A Levy County Sheriff's Office
investigator suffered serious injuries
after he was involved in a crash while
responding to a burglary-in-progress
call.
On Thursday, Tom Martin, 34, was
driving down Old Fanning Road with
his emergency lights responding to a
burglary-in-progress call at 8690 N.W.
150th St., Chiefland.
At 147th Place and Old Fanning Road
a 2000 Pontiac two-door car, driven by
34-year-old Robert Fitch of Chiefland,
pulled in front of Martin's 2006 Ford
car. To avoid a collision with Fitch's car,
Martin drove off the east side of the road,
which resulted in losing control of his
vehicle.
He traveled back across the road to the


west shoulder and went through a fence
before hitting a tree with the left side in
the driver's door area.
Martin had to be extracted from the
patrol car by Levy County EMS. He was
transported to Shands in Gainesville with
serious but not life-threatening injuries.
Fitch and his passenger, 36-year-
old Steven Fitch, received no injuries;
however, Fitch, the driver, was cited for
failure to yield the right of way.
Levy County Sheriffs Office Corporal
Lauree Allen arrived at the scene of the
burglary-in-progress call Martin was on
his way to and placed Douglas Maund,
41, of 1204 N.W 17t Ave., Chiefland, in
custody for grand theft.
According to the sheriffs office
press release, Maund had been allegedly
stealing scrap metal from the residence
for the past three days and selling it in
Marion County.


Man reports car stolen


A Chiefland woman was arrested
for grand theft auto after the victim
reported he allowed her to use his 2002
Ford Escape to take her children to Blue
Springs for the day.
Mike Feriola of Chiefland said he
lent the car to Chastity Falia Anderson,
33, of 8132 N.W. 77th Place, Chiefland,
April 4 and when the car was not
returned by the end of the day he called
police.
The next day the vehicle had still
not been returned and it was entered
as stolen because it had been 24 hours
since Feriola lent Anderson his car.
According to the arrest report, contact
was made with Anderson's mother,
who said she had received a message
from Anderson saying she was OK and
needed to "get away" for awhile.


On April 6, Feriola said he received
a call from a former sponsor of
Anderson's from NarcoticsAnonymous.
The sponsor gave the phone number of
where Anderson and the vehicle were.
When law enforcement called the
number, a man who identified himself
as Tim Simmons said both Anderson
and the Ford Escape were at his home
in Marion County.
Anderson was taken to the Levy
County Sheriff's Office and, according
to the arrest report, post-Miranda
admitted that she borrowed the car and
did not return it on the agreed-upon
time. She also admitted that she was on
a crack cocaine binge.
Anderson was arrested and charged
with grand theft auto with a bond of
$5,000.

City applies for grant to give neighborhood central sewer

Commission also honors interim Chiefland fire chief at meeting


Story and photo by Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Eleanor Village is a small mobile home neighborhood
in north Chiefland that has always been hooked to septic
tanks, but that could soon change.
Chiefland city commissioners voted Monday to
apply for a $650,000 community development block
grant that would pay for the abandonment of the septic
tanks and replace them with city central sewer.
The board approved a resolution allowing Fred Fox
Enterprises to move forward with an application for the
grant.
Most of the money is earmarked for adding sewer
lines and removing septic tanks in the Eleanor Village
area but the city also plans to install fire hydrants there
and in the Pepperidge Area.
The area affected will include N.E. 121 Ave., N.E.
13th Ave., N.E. 3rd Street, N.E. 19th Ave., N.W. 5th St.,
N.W. 6th St. and the paving of S.W. 2nd St. from U.S. 19
to 14thAve., and installation of sewer lines at two homes
along that street.
Laurie Copeland, financial project coordinator, said
the city should score high on the grant application.
One of the reasons is that the city is providing in-kind
services including abandonment of septic tanks in the
area where new sewer lines are being installed, paying
hookup fees and paying the sewer development fees of
the residents.

Williston praises city manager for saving money


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

Williston City Council members last
week praised City Manager Marcus
Collins for saving the taxpayers about
$1 million in his first year on the job,
but were less complimentary about City
Attorney Norm Fugate and voted 3-1 to
advertise for new law firms.
The savings resulting from Collins'
management of the city included cutting
$505,000 in expenses from the current
budget while balancing the spending
plan. The savings were a reversal of past
spending practices when the city budget
grew from year to year.
A city memo indicated Collins had
done preliminary engineering for two
unrelated projects and submitted the plans
for approval to certified engineers, saving
a total of $80,000. The engineering was
approved. He is not an engineer but has
some engineering background.
He reorganized" the public works
department after six employees were
laid off, creating a reduction in salaries
of $150,000. Collins also eliminated the
public works director position after James
Arrington retired and created division
directors for all the city operated utilities,
a cost savings move.
He had staff build an access road to
Williston Municipal Airport rather than
hiring a contractor to do the work, saving
$25,000.
Collins reduced the city attorney's


retainer by $2,400 annually and reduced
the city attorney's monthly bills to the city
by about $20,000 annually, according to
the memo.
He reduced the garbage collection
cost per residential home from $17.21 to
$16.88 for a total savings of $3,960 over
a 12 month period for 1,000 customers.
He reduced prices for an extra garbage
can from $16.88 to $10 per can, yielding
a savings of $24,768 annually for 300
customers.
Collins also convinced the council to
go private with its garbage collection. The
city had been collecting its own garbage,
but it had reached the point where a new
garbage truck was needed. Garbage
trucks can cost in excess of $200,000.
The city hired Emerald Waste Services
instead. The private company collects
city garbage with company trucks.
He recently secured an energy
efficiency grant for the city that will allow
the fuel depot at Williston Municipal
Airport to be moved behind the Fixed
Base Operator headquarters. This was
one of the projects where Collins did the
preliminary engineering and submitted
the plans to a certified engineer for review
and approval.
Collins came to the city with a
background in utilities, which made
his background attractive to a city that
operates its own electric and gas utilities,
as well as the usual municipal sewer and
water utilities.
"We got real lucky," said Council
President Debra Jones describing the


city's good fortune in finding Collins.
The council is apparently divided on
whether to replace Fugate as city attorney.
He has served the city since 1996.
Councilman Michael Shoemaker
suggested, advertising for law firms that
might want the city attorney's job.
"There are lawyers out there who are
hungry. Maybe we can get one cheaper,"
said Councilman Michael Shoemaker.
Councilman Brooks Holloway said
he would like to negotiate some parts of
Fugate's contract. He doesn't like some
of the language.
One of the sore points with Shoemaker
was the contract Fugate wrote for former
city manager Jim Coleman. Shoemaker
described it as a "lifetime contract."
Fugate didn't object to the city
requesting professional qualifications of
other law firms. He said it was in keeping
with his philosophy of advising elected
bodies to advertise for services to get the
best deal.
"It would be disingenuous of me to
say it's my contract, don't bid it out," he
said.
Fugate disagreed with Shoemaker's
description of Coleman's contract. He
said it was not a lifetime contract.
The contract listed a number of reasons
for which Coleman could be terminated,
but required a 4-1 vote of the council.
Fugate has represented Williston since
1996, Inglis since 1999 and Chiefland
since 2002. His resume said he has
involvement with outside legal counsel
on issues related to Government in the


Sunshine, elections law, land use and
zoning and employment law.
He earned a Bachelor of Science
degree in business administration from the
University of Florida in 1981, graduating
with honors and earned a law degree from
the University of Florida, College of Law
in 1994, graduating with honors.
His community involvement includes
First United Methodist Church, the
Williston Chamber of Commerce,
President of the Williston Rotary Club
and president of the FFA Alumni
Association.
He has continuously represented
a local bank since 1996 in a broad
spectrum of legal issues related to
banking regulations, risk management,
loss, recovery and employee matters,
according to his resume.
Fugate'sresum6saidhehasrepresented
buyers and sellers in real estate actions and
developments. He negotiated a complex
private contract and sale for more than
$32 million involving island waterfront
property being sold to a private developer.
The transaction involved issues related to
zoning, environmental law and security
agreement transactions.
He has also handled estate and tax
planning work for local farm families
seeking to preserve their family farm
operations for future generations in a
way that generates good income. Fugate
belongs to a family that has farmed
peanuts for many years in the Williston
area.

Event raises money


for schools, students

By Anna Suggs
Assistant Editor

The perfect weather and abundance of events had most of Levy County out
and about over the weekend.
One such event incorporated exercise in the great outdoors with raising money
for Levy County schools.
The first-ever Cycle for Education was hosted by the Levy County Schools
Foundation Saturday. About 40 bicyclists showed up to ride on the Greenway
Trail starting in Chiefland behind BubbaQue's.
There were a host of other events in the area like the Levy County Fair,
the Fanning Springs Garden Festival and others that may have detracted some
potential participants, said Paige Brookins, who is the Levy County Schools
Foundation board member and chair for Cycle for Education and also a school
board member.
The designated trail was for 25 miles with several stops along the way where
volunteers offered drinks and snacks to the riders.
Registration was $25 per person and included about 15 sponsorships from
businesses and individuals. A total of $5,200 was raised from the event, said the
Foundation Coordinator Angela Johnson.
The money raised will go into the Foundation's general fund, which can
provide money for whatever is needed in the schools, from pencils and paper to
field trips or scholarships, Brookins.
"If a teacher puts in a request, we very rarely ever deny anyone anything,"
Johnson said.
She said the ride was unlike other Foundation events because the money will
go to the general fund instead of a designated fund, like the gala held in February
that raised'money for Levy County scholarships.
"We like this kind of money better because we can spend it where we want
to," Johnson said.
Brookins said she wanted to chair the event because it is for a worthwhile
cause.
"As a board member, I'm certainly interested in doing all I can to raise money,"
she said.
Brookins was also a teacher for 16 years and said with all the cutbacks the
school board is experiencing, the money raised is even more critical than ever.
. Both Brookins and Johnson said they didn't know what to expect when
coordinating the ride because it was the first time for the event, but they thought
it went well and that the weather was beautiful.
Breakfast was provided and riders took off at their own pace between 7a.m.
and 9 a.m. Lunch was provided by Hungry Howie's afterward. The designated
ride was 25 miles all the way to Old Town, but riders had the option to ride further
and for as long as they wished.
District 3 County Commissioner Marsha Drew took the ride a little further in
length and in fundraising, Brookins said.
Drew gathered about $1,600 worth of sponsorships for her ride. Although she
said her goal was to ride the 25-mile designated trail twice, her bike's wheel
spoke broke and she could only ride 42 miles, which was still the farthest of any
other rider.
Drew said she loves combining sporting events with ftndraising and plans
to participate in the Wild Hog Canoe and Kayak Race Saturday that benefits the
Levy Association for Retarded Citizens and will definitely be on
board for the second annual Cycle for Education, being more
organized and obtaining double the sponsors next year.
Brookins said she is also looking forward to next year's event


and hopes there will be more people to participate.
It's a fun, noncompetitive ride with a friendly, inviting
atmosphere, she said. Everyone rides at his or her own pace and
enjoys the trail.


Riders Laura and Logan Smith enjoy a ride on the trail

Williston High School freshman Savannah Smith was crowned
Miss Levy County at Levy County Fair Sunday night while first
grader Kylie Campbell of Joyce Bullock Elementary School won
Little Miss Levy County.
The two queens were selected at a pageant that took place under
a large dome-shaped tent on the fairgrounds at Williston Municipal
Airport. Levy County Commissioner Chad Johnson served as master
of ceremonies.

Tyler owns 15 head of cattle and shows his own
stock at fairs. He started the herd by showing and
selling steers at the Suwannee River Fair and using
the profits to buy cows.
Tyler, an eighth-grader at Bronson Middle
School with a 3.8 grade-point average, has not
decided what he will do when he graduates from
high school, except it will be agribusiness.
Jones is hoping word will spread about
the livestock show and more competitors will
participate next year. She said the show is not
intended to compete with:the Suwannee River
Fair. The livestock is not sold from this fair. Jones
is hoping Suwannee River Fair officials will want
to exchange volunteers. She said her volunteers
would be happy to work at SRF and she hopes the
reverse is true.
One of the many successful phases of the fair
was the Trash Art auction. County Commissioner
Chad Johnson, who was master of ceremonies
for the two queen pageants, served as auctioneer.
He sold 50-gallon painted barrels coated with a
glossy exterior. Many of the barrels were painted
by schools.
A number of the barrels were painted by
Linda Ballantine Brown, a professional artist and
cattlewoman from Williston. The last barrel painted
,by'Brown sold for $500 to Carlton Heating & Air.
SMore than $2,000 was raised at the Trash Art
auctionwith half the mtoney..going to the schools
that paintbed the barreKtor the organizations that
benefited froilrBrgpwn's painted barrels.
The fair iy6ed off volunteer work, but the
Williston City Cb-uncil also played a big role. The
council this year leasedthe 40 acres of airport
property to the fair from October through April. It
gave the fair enough time to hold horse jumping
competitions. Two of the competitions were held
before the fair, one during the fair. The two early
competitions helped raise money for the fair
association to put on the fair itself.
There were also big donors. C.J.'s Auto Body
donated $2,000 of clear coat to paint the barrels.
The clear coat dressed up the barrels and will
preserve the art. Ryan Bell of Bubbaque's catered
the VIP tent all four days of the fair. Other big
donors were Capital City Bank, Waste Pro, Perkins
Financial Group, Tarmac, Levy County Visitors
Bureau, Hungry Howie's and Bell's Catering.

Race and politics


By Thomas Sowell
Creators Syndicate

F ew combinations are more poisonous
than race and politics. That
combination has tom whole nations
apart and led to the slaughters of
millions in countries around the world.
You might think we would have
learned a lesson from that and stay a% a\
from injecting race into political issues.
Yet playing the race card has become an
increasingly common response to grow ing
public anger at the policies of the Obama
administration and the way those policies ,
have been imposed. .
When the triumphant Democrats made
their widely televised walk up Capitol Hill /
after passing the health care bill, led b\ a ' -
smirking and strutting Nancy Pelosi. holding . ___ _.
her oversized gavel, some of the crowd of
citizens expressed their anger. According to some Democrats, these expressions
of anger included racial slurs directed at black members of Congress.
This is a serious charge-- and one deserving of some serious evidence. But,
despite all the media recording devices on the scene, not to mention recording
devices among the crowd gathered there, nobody can come up with a single
recorded sound to back up that incendiary charge. Worse yet, some people have
claimed that even doubting the charge suggests that you are a racist.
Among the people who are likely to be most disappointed with the Obama
administration are those who thought it would usher in a post-racial society.
That they wished for such a society is a credit to their values. But that they
actually expected a move in that direction suggests that they ignored both
Barack Obama's history and the heavy vested interest that too many people
have in race hustling.
This is just one of many areas in which this country is likely to pay a very
high price for the fact that too many voters paid attention to Obama's rhetoric
while ignoring his actual track record.
However soothing the Obama rhetoric, and however lofty his statements about


being a uniter rather than a divider-- both racially and in terms of bipartisanship-
- everything in his past fairly shouts the opposite, but only to those who follow
facts.
Has he been allied with uniters or dividers in the past? Do Jeremiah Wright,
Bill Ayers and Father Pfleger sound like uniters?
What has his administration done-- as distinguished from what the president
has said-- since taking office?
It has dropped the prosecution of black thugs caught on camera stationed
outside a polling place intimidating voters.
Obama has promoted to the Supreme Court a circuit judge who dismissed a
discrimination lawsuit by white firefighters, whose case the Supreme Court later
accepted and ruled in their favor.
He preceded this appointment by talking about needing people on the court
with "empathy." That is a pretty word but the ugly reality is that it is just another
euphemism for bias. For generations, white Southern judges had all kinds of
empathy for other white Southerners, which is to say, bias against blacks.
The question is whether you want equal treatment or you want payback.
Cycles of revenge and counter-revenge have been at the heart of racial and ethnic
strife throughout history, in countries around the world. It is a history written in
blood. It is history we don't need to repeat in the United States of America.
Political demagoguery and political favoritism have turned groups violently
against each other, even in countries where they have lived peacefully side by
side for generations. Ceylon was one of those countries in the first half of the 20th
century, before the politics of group favoritism so polarized the country-- now
called Sri Lanka-- that it produced a decades-long civil war with mass slaughters
and unspeakable atrocities.
The world has been shocked by the mass slaughters of the Tutsis by the Hutus
in Rwanda but, half a century ago, there had been no such systematic slaughters
there. Political demagoguery whipped up ethnic polarization, among people who
had co-existed, who spoke the same language and had even intermarried.
We know-- or should know-- what lies at the end of the road of racial
polarization. A "race card" is not something to play, because race is a very
dangerous political plaything.

True confessions from America's census workers


By Michelle Malkin
Creators Syndicate


census drive is so desperate for positive
press that it has now recruited former Bush
senior adviser Karl Rove to do public service
announcements. Rove pleads on video: "Please
answer the 10 easy questions. They're almost the
same ones Madison helped write for the first census
back in 1790." Message: If you don't join the census
bandwagon, James Madison will have lost!
Sorry, Mr. Rove. Playing the Founding Fathers
card isn't going to quell conservative criticism of how
the Obama administration has exploited the census
boondoggle for both economic and ideological gain.
For the record, I have no beef with the constitutional
mandate. I complied by filling out my census form and
sending it back -- with "American" in the blank for
race/ethnicity to register my opposition to government
racial classifications. Despite apocalyptic suggestions
by census officials and some Republican politicians that
conservatives are recklessly boycotting the decennial
head count, analysis by both the right-leaping Daily
Caller and left-leaning Plum Line websites shows that
return rates from conservative counties are in line with
national averages.
So, what makes the Obama census campaign
different from other census programs? First, its naked,
left-wing special interest pandering. The White House
is championing a "Queer the Census" movement
by pro-gay marriage groups, for example, and the
Commerce Department is working with open-borders
leaders who want to use the census as leverage to stop
all immigration raids.
The electoral stakes are high. Some $400 billion
in federal funding and, most importantly, the
apportionment of congressional seats are up for
grabs. Instead of straightforward enumeration of the
American population, Obama and the left's identity
politics-mongers are turning the $1 billion, taxpayer-
subsidized census public relations drive into a
government preferences lobbying bonanza.
More galling: the White House manipulation
of census worker employment to goose the jobless
rate. Last week, the government touted employment
figures bolstered by the hiring of temporary workers
for Census 2010. The Census Bureau anticipates it
may add nearly 750,000 workers to its payroll by May.
Liberal economist Heidi Shierholz exulted in The Hill:
"This is the best-timed census you could ever dream


of." And Team Obama plans to
milk it for all it's worth.
Over the past several weeks,
I've received e-mails from census
workers across the country
describing the directive from their
managers to slow down, stall,
waste time and stretch out their
work unnecessarily. As a counter-
public service announcement, I'm
reprinting some of their letters:
-- "...I have been working
with the census for two weeks,
and every day I shake my head
at the blatant inefficiency and
deliberate misuse of taxpayer ..
money. Specifically, we have
been doing enumeration for
those who do not have a home,
the homeless in shelters, soup
kitchens and in targeted non- .
sheltered outdoor locations, such
as parks, subway stations, etc.
I personally have been sent to check on shelters that
were already determined to be day programs during
the preceding round of quality control, yet they pay me
the mileage and hourly wage to go back and make sure
that they are still only day programs. I walked through
parks and parking lots looking for homeless people to
enumerate, not even by talking to them, but just by
observing their race, sex and approximate age. ...
"...The way the process has been set up by
government bureaucracy is so backward and prevents
a person who is industrious and efficient from being
able to work freely... This is the first job where I am
encouraged to be slow and inefficient."
-- "Last summer I participated in the 'address
canvassing' (AC) project. What this entailed was
walking around a neighborhood, literally door to door,
with a little handheld computer. My job was not to
enter addresses so that these people could receive their
form, but to make sure that the addresses that the first
wave of people put into the system and appeared on
the computer were actually there... Mostly, it was me
getting paid $15.25/hour plus mileage to take my dog
for a walk and push a few buttons.
"In an average suburban neighborhood where the
houses are somewhat close to each other, it was no
problem to do about 35 to 40 addresses per hour once
you learned how to quickly enter data into the computer.
The census said that I should be doing about 12 to 15


per hour. My direct bosses told
me that I should NOT be doing
35 to 40, because it was making
them and other people look bad.
So instead of walking at a snail's
pace, I just did my 35 to 40/hour
and doubled my time when I
submitted my hours. Again, sorry
for the tax dollar grab, but I was
told not to be so darned efficient
or else I'd be cut!"
--"I had the great pleasure
of working for the address
canvassing last spring. I was
j ;' hired in early April for a job that
was to be completed by the first
week of July. I have a military
background and a background
in human resources, and the
whole process left me with
^. blood squirting from my eyes...
. \ I worked in the field for four
days so that I would know what
to do. The remainder of my time was spent sitting in
a McDonald's to have a daily progress meeting with
each of the enumerators. I was paid from the time I
left my house to the time I got home ... plus mileage.
I was told to pad the time or mileage to cover my
McDonald's food, since I was camping in a booth
all day. For all that, I was paid $11.75 an hour. ...We
had a really good crew and were done by the second
week of May... Philadelphia was going nuts because
our region was getting done so fast, but there was
nothing we could do to slow it down another two
months.
"... I never saw such a mismanaged outfit in all
my life. I just shook my head in total disbelief. Our
work could have been done with half the people. We
did have those that quit right after training, to the tune
of $800 spent on nothing. I earned approximately
$3,000. I will say, to be quite honest, it was the
easiest money I ever made. On the exit interview, I
was asked if I wanted to be called back for further
work. I wrote 'NO' in big letters. I didn't want to take
any further part in. what I saw to be a racket."
What would Madison think now?

Bembry:


Much work


to be done

By Leonard Bembry
State Representative
District 10

t is an honor to
serve as State
Representative
from District 10.
I represent the largest
geographic House
District in Florida,
encompassing all
or part of 10 small
counties in North
Central Florida. It is
approximately 13.5
percent of the total
land area, 7,846 square miles, of Florida. The beauty
and diversity of this land reminds me every day we
must always protect our environment.
I am convinced that our State budget is the greatest
challenge we face in Florida today. We are faced with
very serious and unparalleled decreases according to
the most recent population growth numbers and a
current revenue estimating shortfall. Unemployment
is almost 12 percent, and the family budget is being
stretched to the limit. Florida's robust and resilient
economy has always produced unparalleled growth
in the past, and I am convinced it will again in the
future. We cannot continue to depend on stimulus
money from the federal government to balance the
budget. With the beginning of the new session,
we need a fresh bi-partisan attitude toward making
fiscally sound and responsible decisions.
We need to re-prioritize our spending in this
State. Our people pay their bills each month and
reprioritize their spending decisions based on their
incomes. We have been unwilling as a legislature to
take a similar attitude and re-prioritize expenditures
that may, be good public policy, but do not meet our
current priority spending requirements.
Our business climate has diminished to the point
that many businesses have closed their doors, adding
to our unemployment. I have operated a small
business for the past 40 years, and I understand their
challenges. It is going to be a tremendous challenge
for lawmakers to produce a budget that we can
properly fund and that will serve all Floridians well.
We must protect education in this process. This
will be the only opportunity our children have for a
good education. Our children are truly our greatest
assets. We cannot let them down. Education funding
cannot wait, it must be a priority!
We need to protect our aging population
because we all have a moral responsibility to do so.
They have brought us to this point, and we must never
lose sight of how important they are to Florida.
We must not have new taxes in this very fragile
economy. Our people are challenged to maintain the
level of taxes we currently have. I will not consider
new taxes this session.
We must support small counties and rural
communities. Many times they are affected very
differently by legislation that is enacted. Changes
in the tax laws, and mandates, have negative
implications for small counties. They don't have
economies of scale like larger counties. We must
look at every piece of legislation and determine how
it will affect job growth and our business climate.
Our small school systems need all the funding
and flexibility we can generate for them. Their
financial concerns are uniquely different from larger
school systems.
We must support our state employees 'in these
tough times. We count on them to help run our
government and be there when we need them. Our
inability to properly budget and operate this State
responsibly from a fiscal stand-point should not
reflect on our state employees.
My family's roots go back six generations
in Florida agriculture, and we have been deeply
involved in public service for many years. We must
protect agriculture and Florida business from the
effects of the EPA's new stringent numeric nutrient
qualification criteria set for all Florida water bodies.
This will seriously impact Florida agriculture
and businesses ability to move forward and be
competitive. I understand the rural values and rural
lifestyle we have, and I am determined to protect
them. I am committed to being very aggressive in
protecting Florida's agriculture and businesses this
session.
As legislators, we need to approach our job with
a "servant's heart", knowing and understanding
why we serve, and who we serve. I have always
understood the importance of the position, but never
realized how uniquely and directly what we do in


the legislature touches the lives of our people. This
process has become very personal to me.
Many times opposition to a bad bill is more
important than support for a good one. We need to
stay vigilant in this process to better serve the needs
of the people. This process needs to be more about
serving the people, and less about serving the party.


If you have a septic tank,
this will affect you!

Unless Florida homeowners with traditional
passive residential septic tank systems convince
legislators to stop passage of Senate Bill 550 (SB
550), they will be mandated by a new State agency to
comply with changes (pH testing of your septic site
on your dime, correction of pH on your dime) that
intrude on private property rights, and force significant
financial hardship upon those taxpayers.
In 2009 concerned citizen groups appealed to
Governor Charlie Crist, State legislators, City and
County Commissioners, and regulators that no
sufficient impartial studies had been conducted
to justify forcing such harsh mandates on passive
septic system owners. Senator Lee Constantine had
sponsored that bill. That grass roots citizen initiative
succeeded in achieving a compromise. Funding
was approved to conduct a passive alternative
study process expected to be a well-reasoned and
acceptable approach to fairly address both citizen
and environmental concerns - to be completed before
legislative action would occur. That study has not
been completed. (To verify the issues, please refer
online to www.thesludgereport.org
The original proposal impacted citizens residing
within designated subterranean basins such as Fanning
Springs, Manatee Springs, etc. Now it appears
that Sen. Constantine orchestrated a "back door"
arrangement" to have a freshman senator introduce
SB 550 which now impacts passive septic tank owners
state-wide. Provisions contained in SB 550 would
deny the passive alternative study and circumvents the
compromise that politicians had promised us last year
- if it were to pass!
Given this turn of events, one must question the
sense of urgency, the game plan, and the methods
that were employed to force these issues. There is no
reason to abandon common sense solutions or ignore
legitimate concerns for the economic well being of
this state and the citizens who live, work and pay taxes
here. At a time when Florida's joblessness rate is
unprecedented and epidemic, why would our elected
officials heap another layer of extreme financial
hardship on citizens without requiring completion of
justification studies FIRST! And, why at a time like
this?
Why would Senator Constantine, whose term
ends this year, continue forcing his agenda upon an
affected group of citizens, knowing it denies them fair
and equitable representation? Whose interests should
come first - his, or ours?
SB 550 is a current Florida Legislature agenda
item. Florida's passive septic tank owners should
appeal to their state and local elected officials to
preserve/restore funding for the passive septic
alternative study that was promised and to defeat SB
550. Please act now!

Shame on our
commissioners

I attended the Levy County Commission meeting
on April 6th and all I can say is shame on three of our
County Commissioners. The residents of South Levy
County, have always felt under- represented until
Governor Crist appointed Commissioner Drew to the
Board. Since being in office, she has tried to address
the needs of her constituents, but has been blocked by
the power struggle taking place on the Board.
At the meeting, Commissioner Drew presented
a well - qualified individual to represent the people
in South Levy County to fill a position on the
Planning Commission. As usual, the Rooks, Stevens,
and Johnson triumvirate blocked her attempt;
Commissioner Nancy Bell voted with Drew as a
statement against the unfairness of the situation. Not
only was a well -respected and intelligent candidate
voted down, but it was done without discussion
or allowance for citizen comment before the vote
was taken or without the appointee having been
interviewed. Only after citizens in the audience
demanded to know why they voted not to approve
the candidate for the office were the Commissioners
forthcoming with reasons for their decisions. The
process seemed contrived and spoke volumes
about what is taking place on the Commissiori.
In the past, Commissioner Rooks has done the
exact thing she prevented our Commissioner from
doing. She replaced a seated Planning Commission
member with a new person of her choosing. Our
Commissioner and our residents know what's best
for us and Commissioner Rooks' comment about
wanting someone who knows the Comprehensive
Plan, to retain the seat, is weak at best. Anyone
taking a new position must have time to learn the
rules and procedures; amazing that a well-educated
(Masters Degree), intelligent, experienced ( served
on a planning and zoning board) person would not be
"experienced" enough to serve on a county Planning
Commission! After hearing her reasons for voting no,
I'm asking Commissioner Rooks if she had all the
knowledge to be a Commissioner immediately upon
taking office.
This situation coupled with their other recent
decisions, affecting our area, i.e the unfilled mine pit,
on King Road, will not go unnoticed at election time.
Changes will be taking place all over the country this
Fall; we need to begin that process right here in Levy
County!
Our thanks to the Commissioners who are trying
to look out for the best interests of South Levy
VOTERS.

Southern Scene
by Caleb Hardee


I picture a southern scene
The fields of white and green
Four acres of cotton fields
Georgia pines surrounding that field
Shutters opened up wide
Wash tub and scrubbing board inside
Clothes blowing on the clothes line


Everything is fine
Road's 40 miles away
Never went there any day
Livin' off our farm
The cows and pigs in the barn
The best photo I've ever seen
The nice southern scene

No more


five-hour


energy


drinks


By Rick Burnham
Editor


midnight the
other evening on T
a Journal-related
issue, and woke up
more than a little
groggy the next
morning. So I had
a cup of coffee
and chased it with one of those five-
hour energy drinks. Then I made the
following observations:
- If you took all the cash in America
and divided it equally among the 280
million or so citizens here, it would
take about a year before most of those
who were poor would become poor
again, and those who were rich would
become rich again.
- "People watching" in very
large department stores is one of
the cheapest - and best - forms of
entertainment around.
- Aquafina Flavor Splash (grape)
water is my new beverage of choice.
That replaces G2 Lemon, which
replaced Propel (grape) which replace
Diet Mountain Dew.
- A recent letter to the editor
indicated the writer was puzzled at how
some of the most vocal opponents of
the new health care bill are people who
the bill would help the most. Maybe
those people have yet to adopt the
"what's in it for me" point of view, and
worry that taking from one group to
give to another will eventually hurt the
country.
- I feel sorry for those people who
go through life thinking every little
thing is a conspiracy against them. It
must make for a scary existence.
- Sometimes I get mad when I see
people park in the fire lanes of stores
instead of using one of the 700 parking
spaces that are open within a stone's
throw. And' then they get out of their
vehicle and they weigh 300 pounds,
and I feel sorry that I got upset about
it. But then I seq them inside the store
with four 2-liter cokes and a bag full of
Snickers bars, and I laugh. But when
we're all walking back to our vehicles,
they are still parked in the fire lane and
I get upset about it again.
- I see where Mr. Obama has
ordered the American flag to be taken
down in places where we have rescue
operations ongoing in Haiti. Common
sense would indicate that people
would think more positively of the flag
when it is flown in proximity to such
humanitarian efforts. Even people who
hate the U.S. flag, like Mr. Obama.
- A couple of years ago, I went
and traded my truck in on a little car.
I guess that little car is a magnet for
tailgaters, because I constantly have
people right on my bumper on U.S. 19.
Nothing worse than driving 60 mph
down the road and having someone one
car length behind you. So I show them
my rear brake lights, and then they
show me their front brake lights. And
then they leave me alone.
- My basset hound disappeared
into the laundry room the other day
and returned with a pair of underwear
belonging to my 85-year-old father
in her mouth. (He was not-in them.) I
have since stopped letting her lick my
face.
- Have you heard that the Obama
administration has banned the phrase
"Islamic extremism" from the central
document outlining the U.S. national
security strategy? Glad to hear the
folks in Washington are spending time
on the important stuff. I wonder if
Nancy Pelosi will start acting halfway
intelligent if I ban the word "moron"
from Journal articles about her.
I think I am going to ban that
five-hour energy drink, at least in
conjunction with coffee. I tend to get a
little wound up.


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer

t's difficult to believe, but people
under age 40 are not old enough
to remember the Vietnam War,
much less its impact on the
American people. The war ended 35
years ago. I think it's safe to say that
5-year-olds in 1975 - the 40-year-olds
of today - remember nothing about
Vietnam.
What a pity. Many of them are
national leaders today.
Vietnam could teach the "young"
lessons about the past. The 19th
Century philosopher and essayist,
George Santayana said, "Those
who cannot remember the past are
doomed to repeat it." It is important
to remember the military lessons of
Vietnam as well as the cultural and
social changes resulting from the war.
I will deal in this column only with
the military impacts caused by the
social upheaval during the war and the
resulting impact on Washington and
our military generals in Vietnam.
Vietnam was the first war ever
fought in front of television cameras.
It was an important change. The
American people watched the war
every night on television. They saw
the body bags coming home and the
fierce fighting. The North Vietnamese
government watched our news
broadcasts, read our newspapers and
knew the anti-war movement was
gaining power. They watched our
politicians fret in the face of growing
anti-war sentiment. It gave the North
Vietnamese government strength.
I recently read an interview
published in the Wall Street Journal on
Aug. 3, 1995. Minnesota attorney and
human rights activist Stephen Young
interviewed Bui Tin, who served on
the general staff of North Vietnam's
army during the Vietnam War. He later
became editor of the People's Daily,
the official propaganda publication
of the post-war communist Vietnam
government. Bui Tin immigrated to
Paris after becoming disillusioned
with communism.
What you see below are a few of
the questions Young asked Bui Tin,
along with his answers as published in
the Wall Street Journal.
Q. Was the American anti-war
movement important to Hanoi's
victory?
A: It was essential to our strategy.
Support of the war from our rear was
completely secure while the American
rear was vulnerable. Every day our
leadership would listen to world news
over the radio at 9 a.m. to follow


the growth of the American anti-war
movement. Visits to Hanoi by people
like Jane Fonda, and former Attorney
General Ramsey Clark and ministers
gave us confidence that we should
hold on in the face of battlefield
reverses. We were elated when Jane
Fonda, wearing a red Vietnamese
dress, said at a press confidence that
she was ashamed of American actions
in the war and that she would struggle
along with us.
Q: How could the Americans have
won the war?
A: Cut the Ho Chi Minh trail inside
Laos. If Johnson had granted (Gen.
William) Westmoreland's request to
enter Laos and block the Ho Chi Minh
trail, Hanoi could not have won the
war.
Bui was also asked about the
famous 1968 Tet Offensive.
Q: What about the results.
A: Our losses were staggering
and a complete surprise. (Gen. Vop
Nguyen) Giap later told me that Tet
had been a military defeat, though
we had gained the planned political
advantages when Johnson agreed
to negotiate and did not run for re-
election. The second and third waves
in May and September were, in
retrospect, mistakes. Our forces in the
South were nearly wiped out by all the
fighting in 1968. It took us until 1971
to re-establish our presence, but we
had to use North Vietnamese troops
as local guerillas. If the American
forces had not begun to withdraw
under Nixon in 1969, they could have
punished us severely. We suffered
badly in 1969 and 1970 as it was.
The Vietnam War was never
lost. America lost the will to win
when politicians ran the war from
Washington.
I lived through the era. I remember
the draft of young American men. I
remember the men lost in battle. They
were young. Hundreds were coming
home in flag-draped coffins every
month. They were young heroes.
Hindsight is always 20-20. But I
think the two big lessons that have
not been learned from the Vietnam
experience is that wars should never
be started without a declaration from
Congress. If a war has begun, the
country should throw its full resources
into battle and allow its generals to
decide war strategy.
People lose confidence in the
government when a war starts with
"military advisors" being sent on some
pretext and troop strength gradually
builds until the conflict becomes a
raging battle. Vietnam waj initially
called a police action and later a


conflict. When it grew too large to be
ignored, it became a war.
The problem of what to call the
war evolved into another problem
- should we win it or pull out? I think
it was obvious Gen. Westmoreland
knew the war could be won if he could
shut down the Ho Chi Minh Trail, but
the politicians in Washington were
worried about what it would look like
to move American troops into Laos.
Congress hesitated before rejecting
Westmoreland's request to shut
down the supply trail for the North
Vietnamese war effort.
The reason I mention Vietnam and
the confusion about what to call it, the
social turmoil about whether to fight
or withdraw, as well as the ineptitude
involving civilians making back seat
decisions about the war, is it reminds
me of modem conflicts, particularly
in Iraq and Afghanistan. If President
George W. Bush had allowed his
generals to plan and run the two wars
without political meddling, I think
the outcome would have been better.
I think Osama Bin Laden would have
been killed or captured in Afghanistan.
I think post-war Iraq would not have
erupted into a prolonged bloodbath.
While it's true America's military
must ultimately answer to civilian
leadership in Washington, it's also
true that the civilian leadership can't
pretend to be something it's not. Once
a war is underway, whether it's called
a war or not, the generals must be
allowed to fight it in the most effective
way possible. The conflict or war must
be planned by generals and carried
out by the military with a strategy to
dominate and win conclusively.
Those were the military lessons of
Vietnam, but they are being forgotten
in the modem era. Neither Iraq nor
Afghanistan was a declared war, as
was the case in Vietnam. Politicians
were actively involved in making
military decisions, as with Vietnam.
The wars were televised. Anti-war
sentiment slowly grew. There has been
no successful conclusion, at least not
yet.
The American government needs to
consider history and hindsight before
making decisions about whether to go
to war in the modern age, otherwise it
is bound to repeat the mistakes of the
past. I think that has become painfully
obvious.
Perhaps we need to supply the
President and Congress with history
books that detail the American
military and social conflicts of the 20th
Century. Maybe then they can realize
that history often foretells our future
as a nation.


The lessons of the Vietnam War,


should teach us about the future

trict permit for activities lo-
cated near the selected sites

Chiefland adopts new rules to tame behavior at city parks


By Terry Witt
Staff Writer


A loud gathering at Buie Park
several weeks ago prompted Chiefland
city commissioners Monday to change
their rules for events at city parks to
keep down the noise and eliminate
vulgar language.
Under the new rules reservations
to use a city park must be made 72
hours in advance and no reservations
can cover more than 12 consecutive
hours in a day. No one under 21 can
reserve the parks.
Noise that exceeds 60 decibels at


the property boundary is a violation.
Violators will receive one verbal
warning. If the noise continues and
law enforcement has to respond a
second time the event may be shut
down and/or the responsible party
may be issued a citation or arrested.
No alcoholic beverages, drug
use, firearms, weapons, smoking or
profanity is allowed in the park or on
city property.
All parks are considered family
parks, so vulgar, foul and sexually
explicit music or language is
prohibited.
Parks can be reserved by filling


out a facilities use permit, which
must be signed by the city manager.
The city manager may refuse any
person or group when he feels it is in
the best interests of the city, but the
city cannot discriminate on the basis
of race, color, creed, sex, national
origin, family status or handicap.
The city reserves the right to close
the parks and stop any activity at any
time.
Parks will not be used after 10 p.m.
unless the city commission grants a
special exception.
The city police department has
purchased a noise meter to track the
loudness of music or noise at city
parks and in neighborhoods.
Commissioners gave staff approval
to apply for a Florida Municipal
Insurance Trust Fund grant to pay for
half of the decibel meter. If the grant
is awarded the city would receive
$174.73. Total cost of the decibel
meter is $349.46.
In other business, the
commissioners agreed to support the
county's list of potential sidewalk
enhancement projects. The county
applies for state enhancement grants
to pay for sidewalks. County Road
Department Administrative Road
Superintendent Bruce Greenlee has
recommended building additional


sidewalks to Chiefland's three
schools.
Greenlee has also recommended
sidewalks for the county's other
municipalities. FDOT reviews
the application and decides which
projects are funded.
On a somewhat related matter,
commissioners gave staff permission
to negotiate with Greenlee on the
surfacing of SW 2nd Drive with a
community development block grant.
SW 2nd Drive, which connects to U.S.
19 and runs behind an old flea market,
is a county road.
The city is applying for a $650,000
block grant to make water, sewer and
street improvements in the city.
Commissioners voted to continue
their working relationship with Carr,
Riggs & Ingram for city external
audits. The company absorbed Davis
Monk into the company. Davis
Monk was the city's former external
auditor. Beauchamp & Edwards, a
local certified public accounting firm
worked with Davis Monk on auditing
the city books. Commissioners were
comfortable with the past work of
Davis Monk and Beauchamp and
Edwards. The account that worked
with the city remained with Carr,
Riggs & Ingram.

Gloves shine, bats roar for Indians in Newberry

Story and photos by Rick Burnham
Editor


Chiefland got dazzling glove work and a pair of
impressive home runs to beat Newberry 11-2 on the
road Monday. The game marked the return of junior
Brent Slaughter, who has missed most of the past two
years while recovering from knee surgery.
Johnathan O'Steen blasted a towering home run in
the sixth inning, and Marquis Greene followed with
another an inning later as the Indians poured it on the
Panthers late.
But the real story of the game, according to head
coach Kyle Parnell, may have been the Chiefland
defense. The Indians got key, back-to-back plays to
kill a Newberry rally in the fifth inning - a stop by
second baseman Josh Martinez and an acrobatic grab
by right fielder Tim Reidy.
"We played some pretty good defense out there,"
Parnell said. "Tim Reidy made a spectacular catch out
there in right field - a highlight catch. Josh played
an outstanding game at second base. The one ball he
caught going up the middle was able to stop a little
momentum they had going."
Parnell also commented on a catch and throw
by center-fielder Clenton Wasson. With the bases
loaded and no outs in the bottom of the fourth inning,
Newberry's Kyle Smith lined a sinking drive to center
that Wasson caught on the run. The lanky senior
then made an impressive throw into home plate that
prevented any runs from scoring.
"Clenton made a good throw home," Parnell said.
"We had ourselves a jam with the bases loaded and
got out of it pretty clean."
Wasson actually began the game on the mound,
and gave up only one run over three innings of work.
Jacob Reidy came on in the fourth inning and got the
liner to Wasson, along with a strikeout and a popup to
catcher Parrish Parnell to end the threat.
Newberry also loaded the bases with no out in the
sixth inning. This time it was pitcher Adam Burton
who took care of the threat, striking out two batters
and getting the third to ground out to Martinez at
second.
The trio of Wasson, Reidy and Burton proved to be

Williston Ladies make quick work of Bradford County, 13-3

her team's 13-3 win over Bradford County. (Rhonda Virden)

Editor

For the record, the two runs Williston
scored in the first inning against Bradford
County Friday were not enough to
win the ballgame. Bradford would
eventually score three runs of their
own in the contest, played at Bradford
County High School in Starke.
But, for all intents and purposes,
when Dayna Hunn slugged a two-run
home run in the top of the first inning, the
Lady Red Devils had once again flexed
their muscles, turning the Tornados into
a cool, spring breeze.
Williston would go on to add five
more in the top of the third inning
en route to a 13-3 rout of the Lady
Tornados.
Crissy Rawls led off the first inning
with a single and scored on Hunn's


long home run, and was also right in
the midst of the third inning rally - as
was Hunn. Kayla Carnegie led off the
third with a single and Rawls followed
with another. Angie Wilcox moved both
runners up with a sacrifice bunt, and
Hunn followed with a two-run double.
Kayla Thorrington then brought Hunn
home with a single.
Tori Stamper and Ericka Floyd
walked to load the bases, and Taylor
Acree reached base on an error that
scored both Thorrington and Stamper.
Bradford County managed two runs
of their own in the bottom of the third.
Kiki Strong drew a two-out walk off
Stamper and scored on a double by
Kayla Tucker. Ashley Johnson hit a
double to score Tucker. Williston led 7-
2 after three innings.

Lady Indians wary of letdown in playoffs Chad Reed


By Rick Burnham
Editor


The single-elimination aspect of Florida's intramural
softball playoff system can present big-time problems for
teenage players, particularly those who have undergone
a winning regular season and may be somewhat
overconfident.
Underestimate one opponent and your season may be
over sooner than expected. Experience one slip-up and
you can start planning your post-season awards banquet.
That's the challenge facing the Chiefland Lady Indians,
a team that pummeled district competition while cruising
through a wildly successful regular season.
Chiefland opens the district playoffs Monday in Bell
against a team that had yet to be determined as of earlier
this week. Playing in the west division of District 5-2A,
the Lady Indians will be joined by Bell, Dixie County and
Trenton in a four-team mini-tournament.
The east division tournament will be played at
Gainesville P.K. Yonge and consists of the Lady Blue
Wave, Bronson, Hawthorne, Branford and St. Francis.
The winners of each mini-tournament will meet for the
overall district championship at P.K. Yonge later in the


week.
Chiefland head coach Ginger Fuller, whose team topped
Union County 7-5 on Monday as part of Senior Night
festivities, said the team will practice as hard as possible in
preparation for next week's all-important district playoff
games.
"It will almost be as intense as week three and four,
when we had our first tryouts," she said. "There will be
lots of drills."
Fuller said the team got together to practice over spring
break, but the practices were voluntary.
"We encouraged the kids who went out of town to
practice if they could," she said. "Saturday night we had
a voluntary practice, and Sunday we had a mandatory
practice. Almost everyone showed up for that."
The team travels to Union County Thursday to play the
Lady Tigers again, and then travels to Bell on Saturday for
a game against the Lady Bulldogs. Fuller felt fortunate to
have the games this week, instead of going into the district
playoffs cold.
"We were fortunate enough that they would play us,"
she said. "These two games are warm-ups for the districts.
We are going use them to get our players prepared for
some intense games next week."

Chiefland got two home runs from Amber

beat visiting Union County 7-5 on Senior Night.
Before the game, the team paid tribute to five seniors
- Amie Biehl, Christen Trail, Kaylee Ecker, Mercedes
Jenkins and Danielle Kearns - and their families.
After that was said and done, the Lady Indians
exploded for six runs over the first two innings against
the Lady Tigers. Richardson's home runs were the big
blows of the game, but the team also got contributions
from sophomore Taylore Fuller, who went two for
three at the plate and drove in two runs.
After the quick outburst by Chiefland to start the
her game, Union County put four runs up in the third to
get to 6-5. Harlee Rimes and Morgan Dukes were the
big bats for the Lady Tigers.
But Chiefland added an insurance run in the fifth
inning to put the game away.

People love this


pretty, little beetle

By Jessica Basham
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission

People love to see ladybugs. They are pretty and
shiny with tiny, black dots on their little, red bodies.
Ladybugs are also orange, yellow and pink. A
ladybug, however, is not a true bug but a member of
the beetle family.
Many cultures think ladybugs bring good luck.
Long ago, tiny aphids (plant-eating bugs) attacked
farmers' crops. The farmers prayed to the Virgin
Mary for help. Ladybugs, they said, arrived and ate
up the aphids, saving the crops. So farmers called
them "Our Lady's Beetles," and they became known
as "lady beetles." Now we call them ladybugs, even
though some of them are boys. There are more than
400 species of ladybugs in the United States and
nearly 5,000 worldwide.
A ladybug's color helps protect it from predators.
Red, yellow, orange and black are all colors that
warn enemies they are about to eat something that
will make them sick or tastes yucky.
A ladybug also protects itself by playing dead.
If grabbed or touched, the ladybug will squirt out
a small amount of blood from its leg joints. This
blood smells really bad. Because the beetle looks
and smells dead, a hungry bird will skip this snack.
When the danger has passed, the ladybug may fly
away.
Its little body is really a hard shell that covers its
wings. When it wants to fly, it lifts up the two sides
of its shell and beats its wings. It can beat its wings
up to 85 times per second.
Ladybugs and their larvae (young ladybugs) love
to munch on aphids. Ladybug larvae look like tiny
gators and are black and orange or black and pink.
Ladybugs can eat up to 50 aphids a day. Eating so
many not only fills them up but protects farm crops
and gardens from aphids and other bugs. Aphids
suck the juice out of leaves and cause them to curl
up and die.
When you go searching for a ladybug, look
in places where aphids might hang out, such as
milkweed plants, rose bushes, farm fields and
orchards. Go outside and look on the top and bottom
of leaves. Are some leaves curled up and dead-
looking, or covered with a blackish mold? Look
closely; you may see aphids, which means a ladybug
might be nearby.
Be part of the healthy Get Outdoors Florida!
movement by getting outdoors and helping scientists
find ladybugs. All you need is a camera. In an effort
to study and track ladybugs, Cornell University's
Lost Ladybug Project wants to know where ladybugs
live. If you see a ladybug, take its picture, showing
its top. If you can, get it to crawl on a piece of white
paper, so its spots and colors show up better in the
photo. Then write down where and when you saw
the ladybug. Next, you or your parents can visit
www.lostladybug.org to fill out more information
and e-mail the picture to the Lost Ladybug Project.

EXPOSING THE SECRET


He's just a kid," I heard my mom pleading as I
climbed atop that big red International farm tractor. I
was about to argue, but I noticed my grandpa wasn't
paying her any mind, so I decided not to either. If
Papa said it was a go, it was a go. This
was his farm and her complaining would
likely only harden his Italian resolve. I
even detected a faint hint of satisfaction
in his voice as he said, "Keep it in da
first gear, der boy, just down to da bayou
and back."
Momma was turning red. "He can't
be trusted, Daddy!" she exasperated.
I feigned a conciliatory smile toward
her, winked at my little brother Heath,
and popped the clutch on big red;
leavifig them all choking in the delta
dust.
Chances are Mom stomped off But A
mad, but I never turned to look. It was
important Papa know I was keeping my W
eyes on the road. If I could muster some
maturity here, I might get a free run of the tractor
this summer. I veered clear off the turn row just
thinking about it.
It was scarcely a quarter mile to the bayou, but
it didn't take that long for me to grow extremely
bored with just puttering along in first gear. I mean,
even a patient man can only take so much. Besides,
I was hankering to idle her up and rip through the
gears. Let's see what this baby will do! Bobbing
along was putting me to sleep. By the time I reached
the bayou, I was asking myself, "What are rules for
anyhow, just to hold a man down?"


Papa hadn't actually specified what side of the
bayou I should turn around on, so I crossed on over.
While there, shielded by that thick tree line, the
thought hit me, "What would it hurt if I let loose for
a couple hundred yards?
Shucks, it might not take
but just a few seconds.
They can't see me from the
barn anyhow."
.. My little brother
Do't. Heath, who possesses a
memory like a hypnotized
l elephant on truth serum,
still likes to tell it from his
perspective.
, "The moment that
bonehead crossed the
bayou," he recalls, "Papa
started growling in Italian.
iyway... Momma hollered out the
:h Guy She4ield window, 'I told you!'
Grandma dug out her rosary
beads and started reciting 'Hail Marys.' Everyone's
jaws dropped when we saw that tremendous dust
cloud tearing along above the tree line akin to a
space shuttle launching across the bayou."
When I came puttering innocently back up to the
barn, Papa's face was so red I thought he'd been
stung by a bee. "What's wrong with you?" I asked.
His jaw muscles worked, but nothing came out.
He just pointed for me to park it. This certainly wasn't
the fanfare I had expected. Where was everyone at?
Didn't Momma owe me an apology? As I drove past
I noticed Papa's big bushy eyebrows were gnarled


and hanging at a strange angle. It seemed vaguely
familiar, like some sort of deja vu all over again.
When I hopped down, he yanked off his big leather
belt, and it all suddenly came flooding back to me.
Those were the same brows I'd seen the day I'd
bonked him on the head with that big dirt clod. Uh-
oh!
But anyway- Why do we always think we can
get away with something when we think no one
is looking? God's always looking. I couldn't even
hide my sin from an old man a quarter of a mile
away behind a tree line and a monster pair of
eyebrows! What would make me think I could pull
one over on God, who even discerns the thoughts
and intents of our hearts? (Nothing in all creation is
hidden from God. Everything is naked and exposed
before His eyes, and He is the one to whom we are
accountable. Hebrews 4:13 NLT) We'd do well to
just keep things real with the Lord. There's really no
such thing as a secret to Him. It all registers on the.
sowing and reaping chart.
Thanks to a praying grandmother and a fast pair
of Converse, I survived the wrath of the zesty Italian
that day. I never did get free run of his tractors
though. Later Papa even welded a piece of metal
on the gear box of his riding lawn mower to keep
it in second gear so I wouldn't cut his yard on two
wheels; but of course, that's a whole anotherr story.

cedar Key's Old Florida



Celebration Of the Arts
The Cedar Key Arts Center will be working in partnership with the Cedar Key
Area Chamber of Commerce to be the hew sponsor of the 46th Annual Old
Florida Celebration of the Arts (OFCA) held this weekend. An additional
change includes welcoming new event coordinator, Mandy Cassiano. "
In 2005, the Chamber of Commerce became the sponsor of this event that
has been a tradition in Cedar Key since 1964. It was originally known as the Sidewalk
Arts Festival and was started by Ms. Bessie Gibbs.
According to old news clippings from the St. Petersburg Times, this original fine arts
festival attracted over 100,000 visitors at its peak and artists would set up the night before
to stakeout their sidewalk spots. Mainly due to the unprecedented amount of people who
would come for the weekend, a number unwelcomed by this tiny island, the fine arts
festival changed and over time the fine art tradition was lost.
That is until 2005 when the chamber became the sponsor. Under the chamber's lead,
as well as numerous talented and committed artists (especially Carol Patillo and Marsha
Schwartz) and volunteers in our community "a return to fine arts" and a return to Cedar
Key tradition began.
The 2010 Old Florida Celebration of the Arts will take place on 2nd Street Saturday and
Sunday. This event will attract over 100 fine artists and over 25,000 visitors to Cedar Key.
Cedar Key is known for its natural beauty, its seafood and aquaculture and for its art.
Throughout the past 50 years, artists have been attracted to Cedar Key and Cedar Key has
come to be known as art community. It is this vision of a community that nurtures and
supports the arts and the City of Cedar Key and CRA want to cultivate this part of our
cultural history by supporting an annual juried fine arts festival.

Cedar Key Historical Society hosts speaker on Civil
War blockade runners, April 15
Florida's expansive rural coastline provided a
perfect environment for the discreet movement of
Confederate vessels trading with foreign ports since
it was one of the least active areas patrolled by Union
blockading vessels during the Civil War. The town of
Bayport, located at the mouth of the Weeki Wachee
River, served as a major port for Hernando County,
exporting cotton, farm produce, and timber for local
pencil factories.

Nicole Tumbleson, Maritime Archaeologist/Outreach
Coordinator of the Florida Public Archaeology
Network to talk about her experiences at their monthly
coffee on Thursday, April 15, at 10 a.m. at the Cedar

the Central Regional Center of the Florida Public
Archaeology Network (FPAN) in Crystal River. She
received her BA from the University of Florida and is
completing her Master's degree through the University
of West Florida. Since 2002, she has participated in
field research projects on such diverse sites as 16th
century Spanish vessels, Civil War blockade runners

Wild Hog Canoe & Kayak Race, April 17
If spring is here, can the Wild Hog Canoe &
Kayak Race be far behind? Not likely. The Bronson
AmVets Post #88 and the Levy Association for
Retarded Citizens (LARC) are gearing up for the
33rd running of this fun paddle to benefit charity.
On Saturday, April 17, at 7:30 a.m., paddlers from
near and far will gather at the river to participate in
one of the six canoe classes or one of the two kayak
classes that range from amateur to experienced.
Prizes of miniature paddles are awarded to first,
second, and third place winners in each category.
The Wild Hog Race was originally started in
1977 by Frank Couch and his wife, Carol of Gulf
Hammock. Every April the Couch family, together
with their friends, would race 15 miles down the
Waccasassa River from the SR 24 bridge east of
Otter Creek to the US 19/98 bridge. The fun paddle
would end up with a barbeque on the banks of the
river.
Over the years, the race became so popular. the
group formed a not-for-profit Florida corporation
and looked around for a local organization that could
benefit from the profits. LARC became the chosen
charity and they have been receiving donations
every year since.
This is the fifth year the Wild Hog Canoe &
Kayak Race has been hosted by the Bronson AmVets
-Post #88. Post members work hard preparing the
grounds at the beginning and end of the race course,
before and after the race, soliciting sponsorships and
raffle prizes, and making the paddles. Currently, the
group is seeking sponsors who want to show their
support of LARC activities by making a $200 tax
deductible donation. Interested persons can contact
Post Commander Clyde McGarva at (352) 317-
1236.
Spectators are an important element of the event
and everyone is invited to join the festivities for
food, music and fun. This year the menu and food
preparation are under the capable direction of LARC
Board member, Thelma McCain. For $7 you have
your choice of a fish basket with French fries, cole
slaw, hush puppies and drink or long sausage on a
roll with grilled onions and peppers, French fries,
cole slaw and drink.
Bring your lawn chair and enjoy the out of
doors on the banks of the scenic Waccasassa River
where you can enjoy meeting and talking to your
neighbors while showing your support for two great
organizations: LARC and the AmVets.
For more information and registration, just log

Why we're so proud to
sell Boar's Head...
In the deli meat business, there's only one best, and that's
Boar's Head. For over 100 years they've been the standard. And
to this day, nothing else comes close. Which means when you
come in to buy a sandwich or a pound of meat or cheese, we
know you'll never be disappointed. And giving your customers
the best every day, that's truly a great feeling.
