Greenberg Public Relations for Hospice of the Nature Coast e transformation has begun for Hospice of the Nature Coast to provide a local regional o ce and more to North Main Street in ChieÂ” and. Demolition of the old service station originally built by W. O. (Ottis) Beauchamp between NW 3rd and NW 4th Avenue was in full swing last week and the walls came tumbling down to clear the way for the new Hospice triple-use facility. To those who know old ChieÂ” and this building is in front of the old boat and woodworking shop owned by Leo Tremblay and was originally the home of Orvie and Nannie Prevatt. Hospice of Citrus County, Inc./Hospice of the Nature Coast will be increasing the availability of services to patients and families in the Levy County area with the building and equipping of this new 16,100-squarefoot facility on 1.9 acres in ChieÂ” and. Gray Construction Services of Trenton was chosen as the building contractor and construction will begin soon. Local resources will be used for the project, as available. Hospice of Citrus County, Inc./Hospice of the Nature Coast is a not-ArtistÂs rendering of Hospice of the Nature CoastÂs planned Chie and construction. This triple-use facility will accommodate a regional o ce, a thrift shoppe and a HerryÂs Caf. for-proÂ“ t charitable corporation, licensed in 1985, which serves Alachua, Bradford, Citrus, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Putnam, Suwannee and Union counties. Patients and families in the Levy County area currently receive services from sta based in Inglis or High Springs. Â anks to the support and generosity of so many people since bringing our traditional style of hospice care to patients and families in north central Florida, we are able to expand our opportunity to serve this community,ÂŽ explained Chief Operations O cer Bonnie Saylor. According to Saylor, the new triple-use facility will house a local regional o ce, an education center and a thrift shoppe with a caf named for Herry, the organizationÂs heron logo. HerryÂs Caf will provide a casual meeting spot where patrons can relax and enjoy fresh baked goods, sandwiches, salads, farm-fresh produce and beverages while they shop. Currently, the Hospice rift and Gift Shoppe is located in the WinnDixie Plaza on North Young Boulevard, about 1.5 miles north of the proposed site. e new facility will also be a source of new jobs in the area when completed and that is a very welcome addition to the local economy.

Under blue skies and picture perfect weather race fans were entertained with the Â“ rst of 3 Â“ gure eight races planned for the 2011 season. Taking down the win of the Â“ rst event was omas Peet # 35 followed, by the # 62 of Eric Sharrone and rounding out the top 3 was the #5 of Pnut Higginbotham. Figure eight racing tests not only the talent of the driver, but the strength of his conviction whether to stop or not when it comes time to cross the X in the Â“ gure eight the driver must make to complete the lap. e fastest cars frequently catch up to the slower cars and the meeting place is at the intersection known as the X. e driver with the keenest resolve plants his foot on the throttle to be the Â“ rst one through the X. If you have never experienced this type of racing come on out to Bronson Speedway on Oct 1 and see for yourself how exciting this event is as the second in the series of three events will take place. Returning to competition this week in the Open Wheel ModiÂ“ ed division is Gary Southard. After a long hiatus from racing Gary Southard demonstrated that his years of experience remain evident; after a few slow practice laps Southard found the fast line around the high banks of Bronson Speedway that served him well in years past. Southard served notice that he will be a force to be reckoned with as he Â“ nished 2nd in the feature event. It wonÂt be long before this seasoned veteran takes that coveted victory lap around Bronson Speedway before entering victory lane. e winner of that event Sean Monaghan #21 had to be thrilled knowing he was victorious over the seasoned veteran. In the sportsman division Gene Owen again visited victory lane for the second week in a row. is driver, also a veteran, knows what it takes to win not only races but championships. To date only Owen and Bowers have won multiple Sportsman events, and this divisionÂs competition is heating up. Can anyone stop the e orts of Larry Welter Jr.? A three time winner, Welter makes it look easy to get on victory lane. But anyone who turns the wheel or a wrench on a racecar knows this just is not true. Hard work, dedication and determination are in the heart of all winners. While a victory has eluded #45 John Ray McNeal so far this season, this driverÂs determination is evident as nothing $500 REWARDThe Chie and Police Department is offering a $500 reward for information leading to the arrest of the individual(s) responsible for the vandalism to a vehicle at Scoggins Chevrolet over the Labor Day weekend.

Tomkins of Steinhatchee was driving north on US 19 on ursday afternoon Aug. 25, 2011 on a 2006 Yamaha motorcycle when, according to the Florida Highway Patrol report, he unexpectedly saw a 2007 Chevy pickup truck driven by Bronson residents Luis Martinez and Armondo Medira crossing the highway in front of him in order to turn southwards on US 19. Martinez, the driver of the pickup, was entering the highway from an easterly private driveway. Tompkins, the driver of the Yamaha, was in the outside lane traveling north on US 19. Martinez was attempting to cross over the highway and the median to turn south while Tompkins moved over into the inside lane to avoid colliding with the pickup but it did not work. e motorcycle struck the left side of the Chevy with its front end spinning the pickup and sending Tompkins hurling in the air some few feet north of the impact laying out on its left side. e driver and passenger of the Chevy pickup were wearing seatbelts and the passenger had only minor injuries. Martinez was charged with violation of rightof-way. Tompkins, who was charged with no motorcycle endorsement, was not wearing a helmet and was transported to Shands of UF hospital in critical condition. Fatal Accident in Williston on CR 323On August 30, 2011 around 5:30 p.m. Benjamin Hammonds received a call from his neighbor that there were several juvenile boys on his property at SE 1st Ave. in Williston. Hammond immediately headed to the property and as he drove to the driveway observed the boys in front of his residence. Hammond then quickly accelerated to get to the boys, even leaving skid marks. Once there, Hammond accelerated again and nearly hit two juveniles with his vehicle. e boys feared Hammond was going hurt them and ran to get away, splitting up after Hammond continued to pursue them. After driving forward and in reverse to keep up with the boys, Hammond stopped the vehicle and made eye contact one of the boys who was hiding behind a tree. Hammond pulled out a revolver and pointed it at the juvenile. Upon seeing a red backpack, Hammond picked it up o the roadway, got back in his vehicle and Â” ed the scene. e Williston Police Department o cer responding to the incident received permission from Hammond to search HammondÂs property and vehicles. e o cer located the backpack in the vehicle and also recovered a revolver in the center console of another vehicle registered to Hammond. Hammond was arrested for three counts of Aggravated Assault and transported to the Williston Police Department for processing before being transported to the Levy County Jail without incident.Trespassing Juveniles Almost Encounter the Vehicle of the Irate VictimOn Friday, September 2, 2011, the Levy County Sheri Âs O ce, together with the Inglis and ChieÂ” and Police Departments with equipment borrowed from the City of Williston, conducted a DUI Checkpoint in Inglis as part of the National "Drive Sober or Get Pulled OverÂŽ Campaign. is campaign was to reduce and eliminate impaired driving on our roadways. During this 3-hour road block they stopped 73 vehicles and issued 13 total citations with one being for open container. Although no DUI arrests were made, this collaborative agency approach to DUI enforcement will be the Â“ rst of many for 2011. is team approach makes cost-e ective impaireddriving enforcement a reality in these tough economic times.

With her in the 1991 Dodge Dynasty was her passenger Louvina Waters Dallas. Traveling north on CR 323 was a 1998 Ford Â” atbed truck driven by Darren A. Parks. As Parker made the left turn, ParksÂ Â” atbed collided with the right passenger side of ParkersÂ Dodge Dynasty. e Â” atbed pushed the Dodge onto the east grass shoulder and the two vehicles became separated with the Dodge spinning counterclockwise. e Â” atbed truck went on to collide with and come to rest on a fence facing north. Both the driver and the passenger in the Dodge were pronounced deceased by a Levy County EMS paramedic. e passenger Dallas did have her seatbelt on but the driver Parker did not. e driver of the Ford Â” atbed, Parks, was using the seatbelt at the time of the collision. Charges at this time are pending further investigation.

Not pictured: Bren Schultz.In recent years, Bronson Elementary School had sewer lines installed attaching the school sewer system to the Town of Bronson sewer system. is unavoidable endeavor resulted in the removal of all landscaping in the front of the school leaving BronsonÂs natural landscapeÂƒsand. Unfortunately the existing plants were not in any condition to salvage and with schoolÂs budget becoming increasingly tight, the funds were not available to replace the landscape. Taking this knowledge into consideration, the idea for a beautiÂ“ cation project emerged following the passing of School Board Member Cameron AsbellÂs mother, Royala Asbell Coleman. Ms. Coleman, a Bronson native, was a lover of landscape and Â” owers and believed in investing in her community. is being said, nothing gave her more pride and joy than her three grandsons. Hence the idea arose to enrich the outward view of the school her grandsons attend every day, Bronson Elementary. ough the idea began in thoughts of a tribute, it quickly blossomed into a larger civic venture. e Kountry Kids 4-H Club of Bronson volunteered to assist as part of their community service project as the majority of their members currently attending BES. e group later enlisted the help of Mrs. Jennifer Bray, Bronson Middle School Ag Teacher, and BES School Beauti cationAg Teacher Jennifer Bray's Agricultural Foundations students Kountry Kids 4-H Club of Bronson By Daris HowardMr. Johns Â“ nished passing out the exams and turned to face the class. ÂGentlemen, you will see that your scores are very disappointing. I expected much better from you than this.ÂŽ David raised his hand, and after Mr. Johns called on him, he spoke the feelings of all the students. ÂBut we show we know how to do the mechanics. We have rebuilt cars nearly from the ground up. Demonstrating that understanding is what really should matter.ÂŽ It was obvious that Mr. Johns didnÂt agree. He spoke forcefully to him. ÂI feel a person only really knows something if he can explain it. Until you can explain things on an exam, you are not really mechanics, just backyard tinkerers.ÂŽ He then turned to the whole class. ÂI am going on a vacation this weekend, but you, Gentlemen, are going to spend your time preparing to show me you are more than backyard tinkerers. I am going to give you a retake.ÂŽEveryone groaned, but Mr. Johns made it clear it was not up for discussion. By Friday the test was ready, and he took his family out of town to visit relatives. Sunday evening, as he pulled into his driveway, his young son yelled, ÂDad, the V.W. is gone!ÂŽSure enough, the V.W. he had been rebuilding was missing. He hurried into the house and quickly called the police. When the o cer arrived, Mr. Johns took him out to the driveway to show him where it had been. Â...And when we arrived home, it was stolen.ÂŽ e o cer glanced up, and for an instant he froze. en he smiled. ÂPerhaps not stolen, just moved.ÂŽ Mr. Johns looked in the direction the o cer was looking, and there, on the top of the old, three-story high school, was his V.W. He gasped. ÂHow the devil did it get up there?ÂŽ e police o cer laughed. ÂMaybe someone drove it up there.ÂŽMr. Johns didnÂt think it was funny. ÂIt doesnÂt even run. It has some electrical or some fuel problems, or both. I havenÂt been able to Â“ gure it out yet. And obviously it isnÂt going to just Â“ t up the stairwell.ÂŽ ÂMaybe this has to do with the assignment you gave your class,ÂŽ the policeman said. Mr. Johns was puzzled. ÂWhat assignment?ÂŽ ÂYesterday, as I was making my rounds, I came across a whole bunch of boys by the high school with a pile of car parts. I asked them what they were doing, and they said they were working on a project to show you they were true mechanics, as you had requested. ey must have taken the car apart, taken it up on the roof piece by piece, and put it back together.ÂŽ Mr. Johns snorted with disgust. ÂJust wait until I get them in class on Monday!ÂŽ He then turned to the police o cer. ÂI expect you will Â“ le a stolen vehicle report?ÂŽ ÂHow can I Â“ le a stolen vehicle report when it isnÂt stolen, only moved?ÂŽ ÂWell, what am I supposed to do?!ÂŽ ÂMaybe we should go look at it before we decide.ÂŽ Mr. Johns agreed, and they made their way up the narrow stairway to the roof. Mr. Johns climbed in he car, and instinctively turned the key. To his surprise, it started and ran perfectly. ÂI thought you said it didnÂt run,ÂŽ the policeman said. ÂIt didnÂt.ÂŽ ÂIt looks like they did their assignment well.ÂŽ Mr. Johns swallowed his pride. ÂPerhaps they did. But how do I get it down?ÂŽ ÂI would suggest you have them take it apart and rebuild it on the ground. And I would do it soon before I have to give you a parking ticket.ÂŽ ÂA parking ticket?ÂŽ ÂIt is deÂ“ nitely parked in a no parking zone.ÂŽ And so on Monday, the mechanics test changed to a demonstration of how well they could take apart a V.W. and reassemble again from the ground up. On the ground. Daris Howard is a syndicated columnist, writer, playwright and teacher. He can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.orgThe Mechanics Test

Perhaps the White House can stimulate a few construction jobs by adding an entire rubber room annex for ÂreassignedÂŽ scandal bureaucrats at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. ItÂs getting mighty crowded. On Tuesday, the Justice Department announced it was shu ing Kenneth Melson, acting director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, out of his job. e disclosure comes amid continued GOP investigations into the administrationÂs fatally botched straw gun purchase racket at the border and spreading outrage over legal obstructionism and whistleblower retaliation by DOJ brass. e DOJ inspector general is also conducting a probe. Internal documents earlier showed that Melson was intimately involved in overseeing the program and screened undercover videos of thousands of straw purchases of AK-47s and other high-powered riÂ” es -many of which ended up in the hands of Mexican drug cartel thugs, including those who murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry last December. Fast and Furious weapons have been tied to at least a dozen violent crimes in America and untold bloody havoc in Mexico. In secret July 4 testimony, Melson revealed he was Âsick to his stomachÂŽ when he discovered the extent of the operationÂs deadly lapses. Join the club, pal. Melson told congressional investigators that he and ATFÂs senior leadership Âmoved to reassign every manager involved in Fast and Furious, from the deputy assistant director for Â“ eld operations down to the group supervisorÂŽ after ATF whistleblowers went to the press and Capitol. But according to Melson, he and company were ordered by Justice Department higher-ups to remain silent about the reasons for the reassignments. In other words: the ATF managers in the know were Âe ectively muzzled while the DOJ sent over false denials and buried its head in the sand,ÂŽ as GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Sen. Charles Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, concluded in July. Melson has been kicked back to DOJÂs main o ce in a Â” abbergasting new slot as Âsenior adviser on forensic science in the departmentÂs O ce of Legal Policy.ÂŽ He may have been Âsick to his stomach,ÂŽ but the federal careerist apparently has no intention of quitting an administration with blood on its hands. And now heÂll be advising others on how to track and handle evidence. Nice make-work if you can get it. Others on the Fast and Furious dance card of lemons: -Assistant U.S. Attorney Emory Hurley in Phoenix, who helped oversee the straw gun purchase disaster. HeÂs being transferred out of the U.S. AttorneyÂs O ceÂs criminal division and into the civil division. -Assistant ATF Special Agents in Charge George Gillett and Jim Needles. Moved to other positions. -BATF deputy director of operations in the West, William McMahon. Promoted to ATF headquarters. -ATF Phoenix Â“ eld supervisors William Newell and David Voth. Promoted to new management positions in Washington. Keep your friends close and your henchmen on the verge of spilling all the beans closer. ereÂs been only one visible Fast and Furious resignation: U.S. Attorney Dennis Burke in Phoenix, who quietly stepped down on Tuesday. One of his last acts? Opposing the request of murdered Border Patrol Agent Brian TerryÂs family to qualify as crime victims in a court case against the thug who bought the Fast and Furious guns used in TerryÂs murder. e Â“ sh rots from the head down, of course. DOJ is run by Eric Holder, the Beltway swamp creature who won bipartisan approval for his nomination -even after putting political interests ahead of security interests at the Clinton Justice Department in both the Marc Rich pardon scandal and the Puerto Rican FALN terrorist debacle. Remember: Holder won over the Senate by arguing that his poor judgment made him more qualiÂ“ ed for the job.Screw up, move up, cover up: ItÂs the Holder way, the Obama way, the Washington way.

COPYRIGHT 2011 CREATORS.COMTwo Di erent Worlds Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateIdeological clashes over particular laws, policies and programs often go far deeper. ose with opposing views of what is desirable for the future also tend to di er equally sharply as to what the reality of the present is. In other words, they envision two very di erent worlds. A small but revealing example was a recent New York Times criticism of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs for not contributing to charity as much as the New York Times writer thought he should. e media in general are full of praise for business people and their companies for giving away substantial amounts of their wealth. Indeed, that is one of the few things for which many in the media praise businesses and the wealthy. Americans in general -whether rich, poor or in between -have one of the most remarkable records for donating not only money but time to all sorts of charitable endeavors. Privately Â“ nanced hospitals, colleges and innumerable other institutions abound in the United States, while they are rare to nonexistent in many other countries, where such things are usually left to government or to religious organizations. However, with charity as with everything else, it cannot simply be assumed that more is always better. A Âsafety netÂŽ can easily become a hammock. ÂSocial justiceÂŽ can easily become class warfare that polarizes a nation, while leading those at the bottom into the blind alley of resentments, no matter how many broad avenues of achievement may be available to them. Judging businesses or their owners by how much wealth they give away -rather than by how much wealth they create -is putting the cart before the horse. Wealth is ultimately the only thing that can reduce poverty. e most dramatic reductions in poverty, in countries around the world, have come from increasing the amount of wealth, rather than from a redistribution of existing wealth. What kind of world do we want -one in which everyone works to increase wealth to whatever extent they can, or a world in which everyone will be supported by either government handouts or private philanthropy, whether they work or donÂt work? It is not an abstract question. We can already see the consequences on both sides of the Atlantic. ose who have grown used to having others provide their food, shelter and other basics as ÂrightsÂŽ are by no means grateful. On the contrary, they are more angry, lawless and violent than in years past, whether they are lower-class whites rioting in Britain or black ÂÂ” ash mobsÂŽ in America. eir histories are very di erent, but what they have in common is being supplied with a steady drumbeat of resentments against those who are better o Politicians, intellectuals and whole armies of caretaker bureaucrats are among those who beneÂ“ t, in one way or another, from picturing parasites as victims, and their lags behind the rest of society as reasons for anger rather than achievement.

OPINIONLeading people into the blind alley of dependency and grievances may be counterproductive for them but it can produce votes, money, power, fame and a sense of exaltation to others who portray themselves as friends of the downtrodden. Both private philanthropy and the taxpayersÂ money support this whole ediÂ“ ce of a make-believe world, where largesse replaces achievement and ÂrightsÂŽ replace work. Trying to rope Steve Jobs into this world ignores how many other famous businessmen, whose achievements in business have beneÂ“ ted society, have created philanthropies whose harm has o set those beneÂ“ ts. Henry Ford beneÂ“ ted millions of other people by creating mass production methods that cut the cost of automobiles to a fraction of what they had been before -bringing cars for the Â“ rst time within the budgets of people who were not rich. But the Ford Foundation has become a plaything of social experimenters who pay no price for creating programs that have been counterproductive or even socially disastrous. Nor was this the only foundation created by business philanthropy with a similar history and similar social results. Let business pioneers do what they do best. And let the rest of us exercise more judgment as to how much charity is beneÂ“ cial and how much more simply perpetuates dependency, grievances and the polarization of society.To nd out more about omas Sowell and read features by other Creators Syndicate columnists and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate Web page at www.creators.com. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2011 CREATORS.COMLesson Learned?By Kathy Hilliard, Staff WriterI remember when my sons were small and thought they could get away with mischievous behaviors while mom was working. Most of the time we worked it out without too much fanfare. But one time, I had had enough. So I asked the o cer to go ahead and take them to the station and show them the inside of a cell so they could see where that type of activity could lead them. It worked Â… on them and me. I cried and cried as they showed extreme respect for that place and the not-so-comfy staterooms with no TV. We all drove home rather quiet but changed. Today I read of the plight of an 84-year-old man in Williston who also got fed up. e juveniles trespassing on his property caused him to go one step over the line as he chased them with his vehicle. At the end of the not-so-pleasant tour he got out and picked up his revolver, stared the kid in the face, then picked up the backpack and drove home. Now, I do not support threatening kids with weapons or chasing them down with cars. e old gentleman was arrested and that is how it should be. But, I am just wondering if those kids may have been ÂchangedÂŽ just a bit and rethinking the idea of how old people react to trespassing on their property or stealing their stu e old man may have just become the cause of thinking twice before committing a crime just because you feel you can get away with it because they are old. Some of us old birds are tougher than you think and can get quite cranky. What have we got to lose? Peer pressure is not what it used to be and sometimes a new adventure puts some life in an old spark plug. I sure hope it made a di erence in their lives even if it was not the best thought out plan of mice or men. If the old perpetrator has to pay the price I hope the expensive lesson learned will avert criminal activity in the future of three young men who could be an asset to our community rather than another resident of the sheri Âs motel.Margaret atcher Quotes ÂŽ I do not know anyone who has got to the top without hard work. That is the recipe. It will not always get you to the top, but should get you pretty near. I donÂ’t mind how much my Ministers talk, so long as they do what I say. I just owe almost everything to my father and itÂ’s passionately interesting for me that the things that I learned in a small town, in a very modest home, are just the things that I believe have won the election. I owe nothing to WomenÂ’s Lib.

Surely this was just some weird nightmare. I usually didnÂt drag out of bed until the crack of noon! Heavy footsteps stomped o across the old Â” oor furnace. en a sweet voice from the living room called, ÂLet him alone Nello. Poooor Guy. HeÂs just a growing boy. He needs his rest.ÂŽ It was my grandma Mimi. She always came to my defense. Unfortunately, in the 20 years IÂd been alive I had no recollection of my Papa ever heeding her advice. Reluctantly I hopped up. After all, I wanted to stick around long enough to enjoy another day of MimiÂs cooking before heading back to Junior College. at would mean IÂd have to curtail PapaÂs favorite phrase, ÂItÂs my houseÂƒ Hit the road!ÂŽI wormed into a t-shirt and trudged out like a Mississippi Bed-head Monster with mega-melting morning breath. Mimi handed me a fried egg sandwich. Â e toiletÂs backed up son,ÂŽ She explained, ÂYour PapaÂs out in the yard with poooor little Heath.ÂŽ I found them out by the edge of the cotton Â“ eld. Papa stood like an Italian mountain, his 48ÂŽ belt cinching up his polyester pants just below his chin. His furry brows hinged in the middle, indicating his foul mood. He raked a thumb through his big nose, as was his habit, and thrust a rusty old shovel at me. My gangly little brother Heath looked up wearily from the little trench heÂd begun.ÂPapa says we got to Â“ nd where the drain is clogged.ÂŽ Obviously heÂd experienced his own rude awakening. His blond hair looked like a botched crop circle, and I noticed he had mud splattered all the way up to the colored rings on his knee high tube socks. At least I hoped it was mud. About that time I got a whi of something that almost caused me to gag my egg sandwich. Papa had located some sort of underground drainage pipe, and he was most conÂ“ dent if we unclogged it weÂd get the toilet Â” ushing again. So for the next two hours we dug it up all the way across the yard back toward the house. It was miserable work, and IÂd already begun plotting my escape when the pipe mercifully disappeared under the concrete carport. Papa was sending me for the sledge hammer when little Heath Â“ nally spoke up, ÂPapa, donÂt you have a septic tank between here and the house?ÂŽ Papa took a step back, contemplating the thought. Just as he was running a muddy thumb through his nose Mimi leaned out the door, ÂNello, why donÂt you just call a plumber and leave those poooor boys alone.ÂŽ I was sure Papa would explode, but to my surprise, he suddenly chuckled and managed a guilty little smile. ÂAll right der Mary,ÂŽ he replied, ÂIÂll call to town directly.ÂŽ It was something I never thought IÂd witness in my lifetime. But anywayWhen the plumber arrived he wasted little time examining our trench. Instead, he went right to the heart of the matter, the toilet. He plunged it out and within seconds had it Â” ushing like new. I guess sometimes we ought to put our rusty shovels down long enough to look around and contemplate whether weÂre making things more di cult than need be. For example: WhatÂs the Â“ rst thing most of us do when we realize weÂre sinners? We run right o to the wrong end of the septic tank and start digging! Trying to attain our own righteousness through works is like o ering our muddy tube socks to a holy God. WeÂre not only spurning His grace, but rejecting the gift He has nailed for us on the cross! (For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. Ephesians 2:8-9 KJV) IÂve dug enough trenches to nowhere to learn that from now on, when it comes to eternal matters, IÂm calling in a professional. (For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:13 KJV) Jesus is the only one who can get right to the heart of this matter. -Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she firstname.lastname@example.org.

Spanish vaqueros rode ahead of the elongating curtain of smoke rising westerly before the sun. e Alachua Savanna was burning. Don Toms Menndez sat astride his horse and watched the slow blaze from the blu where, behind him, the charred remains of his hacienda stood. is was the La Chula Ranchero, the largest cattle ranch in the New World. By the summer of 1682, Don Toms had overcome drought and disease, Indian raids and oppressive taxes by his own government. Now he had also survived pirates raiding down from the Suwannee. He was descended from Pedro Menndez de Aviles, who founded St. Augustine in 1565. e Menndez family had held power in colonial Florida through treasury o ces, military positions, well-connected marriages and enterprising coastal trade for over a hundred years. Don Toms, however, had proven his mettle in the interior of Florida. e sprawling land grant of the La Chula was his by inheritance, but it was he who had made prosperity possible by establishing peace with the native Timucuans. It was Don Toms Menndez who had co-opted the Potano people nearby in his Â” ourishing revival of the familyÂs Andalusian cattle herds tended by his vaqueros Â… Criollo cowboys with Spanish and Amerindian heritage Â… across north central Florida. More recent developments at the port of St. Augustine had much increased demand for Don TomsÂ beef cattle. e ever ambitious construction of the Castilian fortress had assured a steady inÂ” ux of artisans and skilled laborers, as well as convicts forced to work alongside them. Attending merchants and smiths were enlarging their shops. e military barracks there had expanded, as had the bureaucracies and o cial residences. Each of these enhanced the demand for the products of the La Chula herd and trade. La Chula cattle were driven up from the Alachua prairie to the lower Camino Real, the trail connecting the Spanish missions between St. Augustine and the Apalachee in the hills of Last WeekÂ’s Crossword For this weekÂs Word Search answers, visit our Web site at www.levyjournalonline.com Click on the Brain Teaser tab to nd the link to our answers.

Eastward then they crossed the St. JohnÂs River by large Â” at bottom boats that ferried over the cattle and carts using Indian labor. Onward to St. Augustine, the cattle of La Chula arrived on the hoof providing fresh meat. e carts arrived laden with hides, dried beef and tallow. Also acquired through the Menndez trade network was Cuban rum, Apalachee corn and Indian deerskins valued for gloves and soft linings. Each of these, however, was subject to exorbitant taxes and duties demanded by the KingÂs treasury. Much more lucrative was the supply and trade Don Toms managed out his back door, so to speak. is was commerce by way of his port on the San Martin, as the Suwannee-Santa Fe River system was known on Spanish maps of the day. By herding his cattle up this northwesterly San Martin trail, Menndez rendezvoused with sailing ships only half the distance to St. Augustine. Near the San Martin mission, this ÂportÂŽ was said to be Âfour leaguesÂŽ up the Suwannee at a blu on Old Town Hammock. From there the La Chula cattle were loaded over cypress planks onto ships bound for the stockyards of Havana. As valuable as the close proximity of the port, was the fact that there was no custom house there. Operating out of a duty-free port, eager Havana merchants began sending sloops and ketches up for La Chula hides, dried meat, tallow for candles, trade pelts and furs. So lucrative was the growing Menndez trade on the Suwannee that an unanticipated problem developed. e prosperous enterprise of full-rigged sailing ships did not escape the attention of pirates roaming about the Gulf. Most of these had been feeding at the edges of the Spanish treasure Â” ota, of late more scarce and better protected. is diminishing prized booty had the pirates spying about for more accessible loot. eyÂd turned their attention to the cattle ships and the occasional merchantÂs ketch. Rumor had it that these vessels were supplied by the hacienda of a wealthy ranchero boasting over 7,000 head of cattle. More tantalizing yet, the buccaneers had learned that Don Toms Menndez sometimes traded with seafaring natives for ambergris, the waxy vomitus of sperm whales coveted for its use in exquisite perfumery. Such was the information gathered by a throng of grizzly French pirates holed up in an inlet on Anclote Key above Tampa Bay. Some 35 French buccaneers set sail from there to plunder the Menndez estancia for treasure or blood at La Chula. First they commandeered one of the ships sailing with his consignments. At saber point the pilot unreservedly assured his assailants that he could guide them to the Spanish cattle baronÂs estate. He would show them where the Menndez hacienda stood overlooking the Glades of Heaven that was the Alachua Savanna.

Your choice of help buttons Florida Governor Rick Scott signed a proclamation designating September as Florida Literacy Month on August 22, 2011 with great emphasis on adult education for improving life skills here in the state of Florida. e Florida Department of Environmental ProtectionÂs (DEP) Florida Park Service will celebrate this proclamation with special events at state parks and libraries statewide. e Â“ fth annual Florida Literacy Month will be celebrated in conjunction with International Literacy Day on Sept. 8 and National Library Card Signup Month. FloridaÂs state parks will o er free* entrance on Sunday, Sept. 11 to visitors who bring a library card, library book or who donate a new or gently-used, family-friendly book. ÂWeÂre excited to celebrate literacy in state parks for the Â“ fth year in a row,ÂŽ said DEPÂs Florida Park Service Director Donald Forgione. ÂState parks are the best spot to curl up with a good book and enjoy the great outdoors, reconnect to nature through a story or meet up with your book club for a picnic.ÂŽ e Florida Park Service, Department of Education and Department of State will partner again this year to get the message out about the importance of literacy at all ages. FloridaÂs First Lady Ann Scott will continue to emphasize reading following her Summer Literacy Adventure. ÂFlorida Literacy Month serves as an excellent reminder to share our passion for reading with family and friends,ÂŽ said Florida Celebrate September Literacy Month by Reading in a State ParkEducation Commissioner Gerard Robinson, ÂVenues as beautiful as our state parks can serve as imaginative backdrops for our students to further their literacy skills, and I applaud the Florida Department of Environmental Protection for their continued partnership in the education of our students.ÂŽ Many state parks will host literacy-related events from book giveaways to reading with a park ranger and even reciting poetry. Last year, 35 literacy events were held in Florida State Parks. To Â“ nd a literacy event near you, visit the events calendar on the Florida State Parks Online Park Guide. During last yearÂs Florida Literacy Month, more than 17,000 visitors showed their library book or library card, or donated one of nearly 2,500 books to receive free entrance into a state park. *Free admission to all Florida State Parks except Skyway Fishing Pier State Park in St. Petersburg.As the school year begins, child welfare workers in North Central Florida are gearing up for an increase in child abuse investigations. In 2010, there was a 13% increase in child abuse investigations received by the Florida abuse hotline in the early fall months corresponding to shortly after children return to school, according to data in the statewide database FSFN. In 2009, there was a 10% increase. ÂIt is widely believed that one of the factors causing an increase in hotline calls is that there are more eyes on the children who are trained to recognize signs of abuse or neglect,ÂŽ said Jenn Petion, community and government relations manager at Partnership for Strong Families, the lead community-based care provider of child welfare services in 13 North Central Florida counties. A lack of critical support during summer months may lead to parents making poor decisions that can result in abuse or neglect, said Petion.Making the situation more challenging is the critical need for licensed foster families or Âpartner familiesÂŽ as the agency calls them. According to Akiva Ford, foster care licensing and recruitment manager at Partnership for Strong Families, there is a severe need for families who will accept children ages zero to Â“ ve and 13 and older, as well as homes that will accommodate sibling groups. Particularly in the outlying counties such as Columbia, Dixie, Lafayette, Suwannee, Madison, Taylor and Union where many homes have closed because partner families have adopted the children in their care, there is a need for more families.While agencies statewide have shifted resources to reach a goal set by the Department of Children and FamiliesÂ Foster Care Redesign initiative of reducing the number of children in out-of-home care by 50 percent, this has not eliminated the need for new licensed homes. Locally, Partnership for Strong Families concentrates a signiÂ“ cant amount of resources to provide families with all the resources necessary to prevent child abuse in the community through initiatives such as the Library Partnership resource center and diversion services o ered to families before they enter the formal system. Since 2008, the number of children in out-of-home care in this region has decreased by 46 percent. ÂAs a community, we can help to prevent our children and families from becoming a statistic of abuse and neglect by learning more about the warning signs and also providing support as a partner family,ÂŽ said Shawn Salamida, CEO of Partnership for Strong Families. ÂBe there for the children and families in your community. Sometimes itÂs the small things that will make a world of di erence.ÂŽChild Welfare Workers Prepare for Increase in Abuse Calls Subscribe! $25 /year in Levy County $30 /year in Florida$35 /year Outside Florida Warning Signs of Abuse and Neglect:Does the child have marks or bruises that are di cult to explain? Is the child wearing ina ppropriate clothing (long sleeves during summer months?) Does the child seem withdrawn or self-destructive? Does the child try to avoid his/her home?

COUPONÂ— Tips & TricksTip # 7 One of the best ways to save more money with grocery coupons is to match them with items that are already on sale. Look through your weekly grocery store sale Â” yers (they are often Â“ rst published in the Wednesday newspaper and are also available at the front of the store for free) to Â“ nd matching items that you'd like to purchase. If you don't have time to look through the weekly sale Â” yers just clip your coupons from the Sunday paper and match as you go! Tip # 8 Grocery stores generally do not list everything they have on sale in their weekly sale Â” yers (though IÂm hoping some day they will start!), so, while matching your grocery coupons to the store Â” yers is a huge help, there will also be some additional sales you may want to match with. You have two options here, simply bring your coupon organizer with you to the store each week, OR, clip the coupons from the Sunday paper and take all of them (that you care to use) to the store. Your coupons will most often match with sale items during the grocery storeÂs current sale for that week! Tip # 9 Another way to maximize your savings while matching coupons with weekly sales is to shop at more than one grocery store. Since the stores do not run the same sales each week, you can often double your savings just by shopping at two stores instead of one. Now I'm not suggesting that you drive all the way across town to save a few more dollars, especially with the high cost of gas, but if the stores are close to each other or you can combine your grocery shopping errands with other trips, it may not cost you any extra in gas. And, if you've been using my Coupon Savings tips you already know that we're saving a lot more than just a few dollars! :o) Tip # 10 If you're unable to shop at more than one grocery store each week to maximize your coupon savings (or if the stores in your area are too far apart, considering the extra cost of gas) just be sure to shop at a store that o ers price matching. Let's say you have some great coupons for several items that are only on sale at the 'other store.' By asking for a price match, you'll not only get the best sale prices for both stores (without having to make a second trip), but you'll also be able to match those sale prices with your coupons! more tips next week Save $400 on School Lunches This Year! So in June of 1682, the French pirates came warily up river, avoiding all sandbars according to the pilotÂs nervous instructions. ey made fast their brigantine at the San Martin landing. A small party kept watch while the rest put the wretched shipÂs pilot ahead of them on the trail back to La Chula. As best as can be determined, this took the pirates Â14 leaguesÂŽ or something over 40 miles southeasterly (past landmarks known today as Long Pond and Watermelon Pond in Levy County), then to Knapaha sink in Alachua adjacent to the Menndez rancho on the cusp of the great savannah to the south. e pirates attacked at two oÂclock in the morning, surprising Don Toms and startling the rest of the inhabitants awake as they crashed in with torches and blades raised, barking their shrill and profane commands. Don Toms and his son-in-law, Juan de Hita, were taken as prisoners, followed by four servants, two men and women each. e hacienda was ransacked and torched while the captives were bound and forced to kneel in the yard. e Â“ erce blaze of the burning ranch houses was hot upon their faces and reÂ” ected the horror in their eyes. A frantic clamor rent the night air with the bellow and screech of barnyard animals loose from their pens. e hacienda was not the manse of royal splendor the pirates imagined and they were disappointed with their loot. Even the cattle that would be grazing on the prairie grasses in winter were away feeding on wiregrass in the shady pine barrens, watched from camps by La ChulaÂs vaqueros. Don Toms insisted that gold and silver were never kept at this house so deep in the frontier. e pirates threatened blood. Taking Don Toms for a ransom, they returned disgruntled up the San Martin trail. Absent was the captive pilot whoÂd disappeared from their number during the attack. e Â“ res raging in the night sky at La Chula had been visible from the village of the Potano people. eyÂd come cautiously, uncertain of what caused the huge blaze. Now they knew. Juan de Hita and the La Chula servants hastily informed them of ese days in America, it seems that everyone is so busy that preparing school lunches is liable to push a typical mom right over the edge. When you have to choose between making school lunches or spending that extra 15 minutes in bed, it seems like buying ready-made lunches at the store is a no-brainer, but your budget doesnÂt agree. e average mom packs $2.00 worth of pre-packaged goodies into each lunch she sends to school with her kids. ( at works out to $720 for 2 kids.) What mother hasnÂt wondered if those lunches are even eaten? Here are some tips from LivingOnADime. com for things you can do in 30 minutes or less on the weekend to make those school lunches a snap! ose snack bags of munchies cost a lot! Make your own by pre-packaging chips, pretzels, animal crackers and other snack items into sandwich bags on the weekends. (Have the kids help!) Store them in a big container or basket and just throw them in the lunch box in the morning. Let the kids create their own pizza lunch kitsToast bread and cutout little circles with a biscuit cutter. Add small containers of pizza sauce, cheese, and other toppings. Make fruit gelatin and pudding and put in small plastic containers for the week. Make a large batch of granola bars, cookies, pumpkin bread, banana bread or mu ns. Divide them into zip top sandwich bags and freeze so that you can grab one or two when needed. Brownie bites are simple to make. Bake brownie mix in mini-mu n pans and put three \"brownie bites\" in a sandwich bag for each child\'s lunch. ey freeze well too! Fill thermos (not glass) half full with juice the night before and freeze. In the morning, remove from freezer and Â“ ll the rest of the way. e juice will be cold when the kids are ready to drink it and it keeps their food cold too. Clean vegetables, slice into pieces and bag. Preparing a weekÂs worth of veggies at a time for lunches and snacks saves money and time. Purchase cheese in blocks. Cut it into pieces and put in sandwich bags. Save napkins, catsup and mustard packets you get from take-out. Use in lunches. Before you make another peanut butter and jelly sandwich, check out www.

Before the brigands could reach their ship on the Suwannee, the Timucuan warriors ambushed the rapidly retreating pirates. Don Toms fortunately escaped. Now in the late summer of that year, Don Toms Menndez watched his vaqueros burning o the vast expanse to which his cattle would return for lush, green shoots of prairie grasses in the fall. ese wild pastures were being restored, though the Hacienda La Chula would never be rebuilt. A woodblock stockade was raised instead. e Menndez legacy would extend a generation further before Â“ nally falling from grace with the Spanish Crown and New Spain. By then the great herds had deteriorated to feral droves of black and brown, long-horned cows browsing the savanna. ese were hunted and kept by the Seminoles who had overtaken the Potano tribe. By the time of the American Revolution their chief was Ahaya, known to the English as ÂCowkeeper.ÂŽ It was his son brother of Bowlegs Payne, for whom the prairie is now named.
