Classi ed and display ad deadlines will be moved up to the Monday after Thanksgiving for your convenience. By Kathy HilliardStaff Writer e 10 Commandments monument that proudly sits on the property in front of the ChieÂ” and City Hall will be making a move to other sites in the state of Florida after a unanimous vote of approval by the ChieÂ” and City Commissioners in response to a letter from the monument owner Joe H. Anderson Jr. of Old Town. Anderson requested by letter that the Commission allow him to move the monument to other sites and share it with other Florida communities. e Commissioners granted the request. In AndersonÂs letter to Mayor Teal Pomeroy he states: ÂAs y ou know, the Ten Commandments monument has been placed on the grounds of the ChieÂ” and City Hall since November, 2008. It has been viewed by many and is certainly as asset in detailing some of the more important documents found in American history. I want to personally thank each of you for allowing it to be placed there. ÂMy desire is for as many people as possible to have the opportunity to view the monument and its signiÂ“ cance in American history and for that reason, I would like to remove the monument for placement at other locations throughout our great state on a rotating basis. ÂWith your approval, I will arrange to have the monument picked up (at no expense to the City) and will handle all the necessary arrangements.ÂŽ e monument at the Dixie County courthouse in Cross City drew the attention of and a lawsuit from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Similar monuments in ChieÂ” and and Bronson could also draw the same fate with the ensuing expenses of litigation. e rotating visitation schedule of the beautiful granite monument may prove to be a token of saving grace on the part of Anderson as it is displayed in other temporary sites for all to enjoy but some of us watching it go felt anger and disgrace that our symbol of a way of life in this area could be just picked up and moved because of the intolerance of a few. Ten Commandments Monument to be Shared Throughout Florida Local Law O cer Arrested for Armed Sexual BatteryBy Kathy HilliardStaff Writer e Levy County Sheri Âs O ce arrested one of its own Friday night, Nov. 12. e LCSO received a complaint of a sexual assault occurring on urs. Nov 11 in Morriston by Lt. Zachary Knight, 38, on a woman he had once dated. Knight, who lives in Williston, was at a friendÂs house in ChieÂ” and when he was arrested. Knight has been involved in the martial arts Â“ eld and cage Â“ ghting competing at MMA events from 2006 to 2009 with a record of 3 wins, 4 losses, and no draws. According to Maj. Evan Sullivan it was reported to them that Knight was despondent and suicidal which was evidenced by a hose attached to the tailpipe of a vehicle when o cers arrived at the home in ChieÂ” and where the arrest took place. When o cers approached Knight to make the arrest he did not want to be handcu ed so the arresting o cers used a Taser to subdue him in order to avoid the need for extreme force due to KnightÂs athletic condition and prowess from years of martial arts training. e Florida Department of Law Enforcement was immediately contacted after the complaint was Â“ led as the outside investigator of an employee of the LCSO. Upon receiving an arrest warrant from the FDLE, Knight was arrested for armed sexual battery, false imprisonment and aggravated assault and tampering with a victim. His bond is set at $2,050,000 and he was suspended without pay. Knight was not bonded out and was transported to Bradford County Jail for his safety after Â“ rst appearance in Levy County, according to Maj. Sullivan. Photo by Ren Moore As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods -merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. is year could be di erent. is year Americans can give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. ere is no longer an excuse that at gift-giving time nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is! It's time to think outside the box. Who says a gift needs to Â“ t in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese-produced wrapping paper? Everyone gets their hair cut. How about gift certiÂ“ cates from your local American hair salon or barber? Gym membership? It's appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health mprovement. Who wouldn't appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American-owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certiÂ“ cate or a book of gift certiÂ“ cates. Are you one of those extravagant givers who can plunk down the Benjamins on a Chinesemade Â” at screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course. ere are a bazillion owner-run restaurants -all o ering gift certiÂ“ cates. And, if your intended isn't the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn't about big national chains -this is about supporting your hometown Americans with their Â“ nancial lives on the line to keep their doors open. How many people couldn't use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy? inking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would love the services of a local cleaning lady for a day. Maybe your computer could use a tune-up. Surely there is computer geek around that might be struggling to keep the computer business alive in this economy. Looking for something more personal? Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. ey make jewelry and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes. Check out the Community Calendars for events in the area with crafts being sold by true craftsmen. Plan your holiday outings at local, owneroperated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play at your hometown theatre. Musicians need love too, so Â“ nd a venue showcasing local bands. Honestly, do we really need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a Â“ ve dollar string of lights, about Â“ fty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, think about leaving the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice big tip. Christmas should not be about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city. Christmas is about sharing the love of the Savior born this day by caring and encouraging family, neighbors and American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams. And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the beneÂ“ ts come back to us in ways we couldn't imagine. is is an American Christmas tradition.Christmas Made in the USA!

But sometimes the deer are putting their own selves in harmÂs way for a di erent type of weapon Â… the dreaded human vehicle. Looks like Suwannee County is having a time with this new season phenomena. On Nov. 9 Ethan Davis was driving on SR 51 in his 2000 Ford truck at about 7 p.m. when a deer jumped into the driving lane causing Davis to take evasive action which took him o the road into the grassy shoulder, back across the road, with a spin to the right, across a mailbox, overturning and then standing upright. Damage cost: $4,000. On the same evening Judy Gonzalez was driving her Â03 Pontiac at 8 p.m. when a deer decided to go to the other side of the road just as she got there. In trying to avoid the deer, her vehicle weapon hit a tree. Damage: $3,000. Both of the drivers were Â“ ne, except for the cost of the repairs. Neither got any venison stew out of the deal. Both deer were o and running to a new grazing spot. Moral of the story: Drive safely in the dusk and early evening hours while the deer are still changing their dinner choices or you might end up with not only no venison but lots of costly damage to your vehicle. Fatal Accident on SR 24 Sunday EveningSunday, Nov. 13, Rickey Ezell Jr., 22, of ChieÂ” and, was driving his Â05 Kia 4-door vehicle eastbound on SR 24 about 14 miles east of Cedar Key at 8 p.m. For unknown reasons Ezell drove the Kia onto the north grass shoulder of SR 24 and continued on the grass shoulder for 1000 feet Â“ nally colliding with a utility pole. e utility pole broke as the Kia traveled into it and the Kia with Ezell still inside Â“ nally overturned several times before coming to rest in an upright position. e Kia caught Â“ re and was completely engulfed in Â” ame. Mr. Ezell was pronounced dead at the scene according to the Florida Highway Patrol report. Ezell was wearing his seatbelt.torso. From the scene Sheri Maj. Scott Harden said it looked like Bryan was either climbing up into his tree stand, getting down or had fallen from the stand. Bryan loved hunting and Â“ shing and playing in mud holes. He was all boy. He was also a member of SWAT (Students Without Alcohol and Tobacco). He was a member of New Prospect Baptist Church and had just accepted Jesus as savior on October 23. He was baptized in the Suwannee River at the KOA Campground in Old Town. An autopsy is being performed by the Medical ExaminerÂs O ce in Gainesville and the FWC is continuing to investigate.Hunting Tragedy continued from page 1

Sprinkle with paprika and serve.SAUSAGE APPLE STUFFING1 1/2 cups cubed whole wheat French bread (or regular whole wheat bread if you can't Â“ nd it) 3 3/4 cups cubed white bread ( can substitute sourdough or potato bread) 1 lb. ground sage sausage 1 cup chopped onion 3/4 cup chopped celery 3/4 teaspoon dried thyme 3 teaspoons dried sage 2 teaspoons dried rosemary 1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and chopped 1 cup dried cranberries 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley 1 cooked turkey liver, Â“ nely chopped 3/4 cup turkey stock 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted Preheat oven to 350* degree F. Spread the white and whole wheat bread cubes in a single layer on a large baking sheet. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes in the preheated oven, or until evenly toasted. Transfer toasted bread cubes to a large bowl. In a large skillet, cook the sausage and onions over medium heat, stirring and breaking up the lumps until evenly browned. Add the celery, sage, rosemary, and thyme; cook, stirring, for 3-4 minutes to blend Â” avors. Pour sausage mixture over bread in bowl. Mix in chopped apple, dried cranberries, parsley, and liver. Mix the turkey stock and melted butter together and drizzle over mixture. Mix and toss lightly.SQUASH CASSEROLE6 cups diced yellow squash Vegetable oil for sauting 1 large onion, chopped 6 Tablespoons butter cup sour cream 1 teaspoon seasoning (recipe follows) 1 cup grated cheddar cheese 1 cup crushed butter crackers Preheat oven to 350* degrees Saut the squash in a little vegetable oil over medium-low heat until it has completely broken down, about 15 to 20 minutes. Line a colander with clean paper towels. Place the cooked squash in the lined colander. Gently squeeze excess moister from the squash and set aside. In a medium size skillet, saut the onion in butter for 5 minutes. Remove from pan and mix all ingredients together except cracker crumbs. Pour mixture into a buttered casserole casserole pan and top with the cracker crumbs. Bake for 25-30 minutes. Seasoning: cup garlic powder cup black pepper 3/4 cup saltSWEET POTATO CASSEROLE3 cups mashed sweet potatoes, cooked and still hot 1 cup packed brown sugar 2 eggs 1 tsp. vanilla extract 1/3 cup milk 3/4 cup butter or margarine, divided Crumble Pecan Topping 1 cup Â“ rmly packed brown sugar 1/3 cup all purpose Â” our 1/3 cup butter or margarine 1 cup Â“ nely chopped pecans Combine hot sweet potatoes, sugar, vanilla and 1/2 cup of the butter and beat with electric mixer.

Drain the potatoes, and then return them to the pan. With the burner on low heat, mash the potatoes with a potato masher; the more steam that's released while you mash, the better. Mash for about 5 minutes. Turn o the burner. Add the butter, cream cheese, half-and-half, and seasonings. Stir to combine, and if the mixture needs thinning, add milk. Check the seasonings, adding salt and pepper, to taste. Pour the mashed potatoes into a large casserole pan. Dot the surface with butter. Cover with foil and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.

Place the bird in a large stock pot, and cover with cold water. Place in the refrigerator, and allow the turkey to soak in the salt and water mixture 12 hours, or overnight (overnight is best!). oroughly rinse the turkey, and discard the brine mixture. Let the turkey sit in the refrigerator for several hours uncovered after rinsing o the brine, so that the skin will brown and crisp up. Preheat oven for 350* For un-stu ed turkey: Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stu the turkey cavity with 1 onion, 1/2 the carrots, 1/2 the celery, 1 sprig of thyme, and the bay leaf. Scatter the remaining vegetables and thyme around the bottom of the roasting pan, and cover with the white wine. For stu ed turkey: Brush the turkey with 1/2 the melted butter. Place breast side down on a roasting rack in a shallow roasting pan. Stu the turkey cavity with your favorite dressing recipe and cover with the white wine. Tip: Split the skin between the breasts and using a frosting bag applicator (or your hands if you don't have one) Â“ lled with stu ng and a large opening cut. Insert between breast and skin and shoot stu ng into the opening. Repeat in other breast side. Reshape so the breasts tops are symmetrical. is will add a crispiness to the top skin and make the breast meat even more juicy! Roast uncovered 3 1/2 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until the internal temperature of the thigh reaches 180 degrees F. Carefully turn the turkey breast side up about 2/3 through the roasting time, and brush with the remaining butter. Allow the bird to stand about 30 minutes before carving. MitchÂs Gold & Diamonds
The Levy County Journal4ANovember 17, 2011www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 The Real Scandal Thomas Sowell Creators Syndicate e real scandal in the accusations against Herman Cain is the corruption of the law, the media and politics. LetÂs start with the law. Some people may think the fact that the National Restaurant Association reportedly paid $45,000 to settle a claim made by one of its employees against Mr. Cain is incriminating. Most of us are not going to part with 45 grand without some serious reason. But that is very di erent from the situation of an organization in the present legal climate. e Â“ gure $45,000 struck a chord with me because, some years ago, my wife -who is an attorney -was fervently congratulated when her client had to pay ÂonlyÂŽ $45,000 in a jury award when the plainti was demanding a million dollars, in a case that was as frivolous a lawsuit as you could Â“ nd. e person who was suing was a drunk driver, whose car went out of control and slammed into a tree. After the sheri Âs deputies arrested her, she sued them on dubious charges, and the sheri Âs department was glad it had to pay ÂonlyÂŽ $45,000. e department was painfully aware of the uncertainty about what ruinous costs a jury might impose on the deputies. The Great Stonewall of Obama OPINION Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate e White House laments that America hasnÂt built enough massive government infrastructure projects. Nonsense. At the rate itÂs growing, the Great Stonewall of Obama may soon be the second largest manmade object visible from outer space. While many construction workers across the country remain idle, Team ObamaÂs attorneys have been laboring overtime to erect impenetrable information blockades around three festering scandals: Solyndra, LightSquared, and Fast and Furious. is much is clear: e Âmost transparent administration everÂŽ is hyper-allergic to sunlight and subpoenas. During another trademark Friday news dump, the White House revealed that it would Â“ ght a GOP House subpoena for internal documents related to the halftrillion-dollar, stimulus-funded, nowbankrupt Solyndra solar energy loan bust. White House counsel Kathryn Ruemmler fumed that the information request placed an Âunreasonable burden on the presidentÂs ability to meet his constitutional duties.ÂŽ (Said duties, it should be noted, which the president has had no qualms circumventing during his ÂWe CanÂt WaitÂŽ orgy of executive orders.) Indeed, pestering the White House for a full accounting of how Solyndra and its largest investor -Obama campaign Â“ nance bundler and billionaire gambler George Kaiser -left taxpayers holding the bag is a most unwelcome intrusion into ObamaÂs executive privilege. So someone summon a wahmbulance. HeÂs feeling put upon. Ruemmler further complained that the subpoena represents Âa signiÂ“ cant intrusion on executive branch interests.ÂŽ en she uncorked a full-throated whine: ÂAs written, (the subpoena) encompasses all communications within the White House from the beginning of this Administration to the present that refer or relate to Solyndra, and the subpoena purports to demand a complete response in less than a week. us any document that references Solyndra, even in passing, is arguably responsive to the CommitteeÂs request, and you rea rmed this week that you intend for the request to be that broad.ÂŽ While she paints the request as a lastminute surprise, the White House has been stonewalling on Solyndra all year long. And as Reason magazineÂs Tim Cavanaugh points out: Compliance would be Âthe work of a few hours, at a time when the executive branch has 2.8 million employees. e whole thing could be done by sta ers, leaving the president to focus on golf and fundraising and long, boring speeches.ÂŽ Or staving o other scandals, like the troublesome LightSquared wireless Internet network project. is is ObamaÂs dangerous broadband boondoggle involving billionaire hedge-fund managers Philip Falcone and George Soros. In September, two high-ranking witnesses -Air Force Space Command four-star Gen. William Shelton and National Coordination O ce for Space-Based Positioning, Navigation and Timing Director Anthony Russo -exposed how the White House pressured them to alter their congressional testimony and play down concerns about LightSquaredÂs interference threat to military communications. e Obama administrationÂs National Telecommunications and Information Administration has resisted Freedom of Information Act requests Â“ led by GPS World magazine regarding Âthe operational and economic impacts of a LightSquared terrestrial signal on GPS services.ÂŽ GOP Sen. Charles Grassley has met similar resistance from the Federal Communications Commission on his e orts to gain information about the panelÂs curious waiver for the politically connected from regulations over its proposed hybrid satellite and cellular network. After Â“ ve months of Âradio silenceÂŽ from the FCC, Grassley is now threatening to block two FCC nominees until the panel coughs up the documents. Meanwhile, Grassley and other GOP watchdogs are chipping away at another den of obstructionists at the Department of Justice. At a contentious Senate Judiciary Committee hearing Tuesday, Attorney General Eric Holder and his Democratic water-carriers attempted to deÂ” ect from ObamaÂs bloody Fast and Furious debacle by playing the Blame Bush game. N.Y. Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer tried to equate the Bush-era Operation Wide Receiver program with ObamaÂs deadly Fast and Furious gunwalking debacle and accused investigators of partisanship. (Never mind that Wide Receiver was a more tightly controlled program, as Townhall.comÂs Katie Pavlich reports, that was run in conjunction with the Mexican government, while Fast and Furious left Mexico in the dark and hundreds of bodies in its wake.) More importantly, as Grassley pointed out, DOJ has stymied his e orts to obtain information on all gunwalking brieÂ“ ngs for the past nine months. ItÂs Chuckie-comelately whoÂs playing partisan games, not the GOP. In closing, Holder shamelessly refused to apologize to the family of murdered Border Patrol agent Brian Terry, whose death has been tied to a Fast and Furious weapon, instead o ering ÂsympathyÂŽ and ÂregretÂŽ while skirting direct accountability. ItÂs time to tear down this stonewall. And tear down HolderÂs smirk. e November 2012 bulldozer canÂt come soon enough.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 e real scandal goes far beyond the case of Herman Cain and his accusers. e real scandal is that the law allows people to impose heavy costs on others at little or no cost to themselves. at is a perfect setting for legalized extortion. e fact that neither judges nor juries always stick to the letter of the law means that people who have zero basis for a lawsuit, under the law as written, can still create enough uncertainty to extract money from people who cannot a ord the risk of going to trial. As for a $45,000 settlement, that is what an organization would pay to settle a nuisance lawsuit -if they are lucky. If we had a legal system where judges threw frivolous cases out of court, instead of letting them go to trial Â… that would put a damper on legalized extortion. If those who bring charges that do not stand up in court had to pay the other party for their legal fees Â… and should have to pay for their time as well Â… these games could not go on. It turns out that the women making televised charges against Herman Cain have past histories that do not inspire conÂ“ dence, including in at least one case a history of making similar complaints against others. Another woman who has come forward tells of Herman Cain asking her, at some conference, to see if she could locate some woman in the audience who had asked him a question, so that he could take her to dinner. is apparently struck her as suspicious. is too reminded me of something I knew about personally. Many years ago, I was at a conference where a woman made some very insightful comments, and I took her to lunch to continue the discussion. It so happens she was a nun. Contrary to cynics, there is more than one reason for a man to take a woman to lunch or dinner. e same mainstream media whose responses to proven charges against Bill Clinton was, ÂLetÂs move on,ÂŽ is not about to move on from unproven charges against Herman Cain. What role does race play in all this? It is probably not racism, as such, that motivates these attacks on Herman Cain. e motivation is far more likely to be politics, but politics makes a prominent black conservative like Clarence omas or Herman Cain far more dangerous to the Democrats than an equally prominent white conservative. e 90 percent black vote for Democrats is like money in the bank on election day. A prominent black conservative who o ers an alternative view of the world is a serious danger politically, because if that alternative view has the net e ect of reducing the black vote for Democrats just to 75 percent, the Democrats are in big trouble at election time.In this political context, merely defeating a black conservative at the polls or at conÂ“ rmation hearings is not enough. He must be destroyed as an inÂ” uence in the future -and character assassination is the most obvious way to do it.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.COMThe Rise and Fall of the Welfare State By Dan Mitchell Senior Fellow at the Cato Institute In my speeches, especially when talking about the Â“ scal crisis in Europe (or the future Â“ scal crisis in America), I often warn that the welfare state reaches a point-of-noreturn when the number of people riding in the wagon begins to outnumber the number of people pulling the wagon. To be more speciÂ“ c, if more than 50 percent of the population is dependent on government (employed in the bureaucracy, living o welfare, receiving pensions, etc), it becomes rather di cult to form a coalition to Â“ x the mess. is may explain why Greek politicians have resisted signiÂ“ cant reforms, even though the nation faces a Â“ scal death spiral. But you donÂt need me to explain this relationship. One of our Cato interns, Silvia Morandotti, used her artistic skills to create two images that show what a welfare state looks like when it Â“ rst begins and what it eventually becomes. ese images are remarkably accurate. e welfare state starts with small programs targeted at a handful of genuinely needy people. But as politicians Â“ gure out the electoral beneÂ“ ts of expanding programs and people Â“ gure out the that they can let others work on their behalf, the ratio of producers to consumers begins to worsen. Eventually, even though the ones riding in the wagon should realize that it is not in their interest to over-burden the people pulling the wagon, the entire system breaks down. en things get really interesting. Small nations such as Greece can rely on permanent bailouts from bigger countries and the IMF, but sooner or later, as larger nations begin to go bankrupt, that approach wonÂt be feasible. I often conclude my speeches by joking with the audience that itÂs time to stock up on canned goods, bottled water, and ammo. Many people, IÂm Â“ nding, donÂt think that line very funny. Daniel J. Mitchell holds a bachelorÂ’s and masterÂ’s degree in economics from University of Georgia and a Ph.D. in economics from George Mason University.

But stopping for a moment, she did not Â“ nd Lani and this disturbed her. She rode the property back down to the river before returning. Tying Hero at the gate, Drusilla went up to the house while her horse stirred nervously behind her. Hero began to blow, lifted his head and neighed. ere was a faint whinny in reply, or maybe an echo out of the river swamp, she thought. After mounting the porch stairs in her riding boots, she tapped at the front door. Drusilla called out, but did not hear a reply. When she took her gloved hand from the doorknob, the latch clacked and the door creaked open, widening with a slow screech. Drusilla stepped into the darkened room redolent with the scent of aged fabrics and the remnant of lard and wood smoke. e back door stood open. Suddenly there was a sound of pounding hooves outside. An animal dark and large was crashing through the underbrush past the barn toward the road. Hero snatched at his reins and neighed after it in a deafening trumpet. In that instant Drusilla saw slumped upon the bed the gal-youngÂun Lani, pallid and ashen, her tattered cotton dress soiled and drenched, matted as her Â” axen hair with her own sweat and earth. ÂWhat is it, Lani! WhatÂs the matter?ÂŽ Drusilla called out. No word formed on LaniÂs lips. Her eyes rolled vaguely in the direction of her friend. Drusilla went to her immediately and saw then the blood in rivulets beneath a stocking wrapped and knotted about her slender calf. Her lace-up shoes were o Her other stocking was wrung tight and knotted above the Â“ rst and between these was a large swollen mass, a bulbous knot of inÂ” amed Â” esh where a distinct puncture oozed with blood tinged by some viscous Â” uid. Drusilla climbed onto the bed to better see the extent of her injury. ÂWho or what has done this, Lani?ÂŽ A startling, razor-sharp voice sliced the dark heat of the small room. ÂI done that,ÂŽ Captain Agner snapped from where he now stood in the back door, his right hand obscured by the door jamb. is was the man about whom Enoch had warned his wife. Drusilla Wayne, too, knew his mean reputation. Her eyes Â“ xed on him in the darkened doorway. ere he stood, lean, pock-faced, dressed in heavy black with his shirt buttoned at the neck, his cavalry-style hat without braid set back on his oily head. AgnerÂs voice cracked like a whip: ÂI done the bandage. is done the damage,ÂŽ he announced producing the vile, lifeless body of a diamondback rattler fully Â“ ve feet in length. e snake with its distinctive pattern over waxen scales was draped by half in AgnerÂs thick, bare hand. He tossed it then to the yard. In astonishment, Drusilla looked back to Lani who nodded slightly, her eyes dimming, her grasp faint in her friendÂs hand. ÂMy horse run o ,ÂŽ Agner said blandly. ÂDidnÂt take time to tie him.ÂŽ He spoke more comfortably now. LaniÂs nod had reassured him that he would not be accused of being untoward. ÂI ought to go Â“ nd some milk thistle. atÂll help. She didnÂt get bit like she might have. at thistleÂll help purge the liver while it takes on that poison. I brought many of my men through bit worse.ÂŽ Agner spat. ÂCourse sheÂs a tiny little thing.ÂŽ Drusilla reassured Lani in a hoarse whisper. ÂPray,ÂŽ Lani managed to shape with her parched lips. Drusilla prayed. It was an awkward, anxious prayer, but Lani squeezed her friendÂs hand in gratitude. By late afternoon, Enoch had returned from the mill. at Hero was tied at his gate and had apparently been there for some time presented a curiosity he brought through the front door. e scent of milkweed boiled down for its extract greeted him Â“ rst, and then DrusillaÂs voice calling to him from the alcove where Lani lay in her perspiration and delirium. ÂMy God, whatÂs the matter Lani?ÂŽ Enoch cried out as he all but stumbled toward her. Drusilla, just then wiping LaniÂs brow with a wet rag replied, ÂEnoch, a rattler has struck her. A large one, but it did not manage to hit her squarely. SheÂll make it through.ÂŽ ÂLord, Lord,ÂŽ Enoch gasped from the bedside. ÂIt canÂt be!ÂŽ ÂCaptain Agner is the one that found her,ÂŽ Drusilla o ered carefully. ÂAgner!ÂŽ Drusilla looked up to see his face as the young man Â” ushed, his eyes blue with Â” ame. ÂHe may well have saved LaniÂs life, Enoch.ÂŽ Later Lani would gain enough strength to tell most of what she remembered. What she did not tell was that she had seen Agner on the hill in the pines, watching as she had been tilting water from her bucket to the tiny okra settings. ese had been long dry weeks and each day sheÂd been working row upon row with her enameled, dented bucket scooping water from the tannin-stained trickle in the river bottom. She did as she always did upon spotting Agner up in the pines Â… she went inside. She did not worry Enoch with this detail, but said that when the snake struck from the briar beside the path, Agner must have been passing. He was there instantly it seemed and had killed the snake in a single shot with a pistol kept in his boot. He used her stockings then to make tourniquets above and below the bite. Inexplicably, only one fang had fully penetrated. Enoch cringed more when Lani told of AgnerÂs having drawn on the poisoned bite with his mouth than he did at his wifeÂs telling of the lightning strike of the diamondback. ÂDidnÂt it rattle at you, Lani? DidnÂt you get no warning?ÂŽ he asked pitifully. ÂI donÂt know,ÂŽ she said in puzzlement. ÂI just know I was Âƒwas in a hurry, I reckon.ÂŽ Late on the third day, Drusilla brieÂ” y left Lani and later returned with her husband in their Packard. ey had brought with them Doctor Osborne from the mill. Royce Wayne o ered buoyant encouragement while the old doctor made his owlish examination. When he was Â“ nished, the doctor assured Enoch that what could be done had been done. Drinking water now would be important to keep Lani hydrated and Â” ush her system of the snakeÂs poison. But she would survive. Wayne drove the doctor back to his apartment behind the o ce and small ward the mill provided. ey had not been gone long when the headlights of WayneÂs car lit the LeightonÂs gate again. An astonishing discovery had been made. Captain Agner was not more than a hundred yards down the road, dead, his neck broken. e ground about him was churned by the hooves of the frightened horse seen in the dense thicket nearby with its saddle askew. When Dr. Osborne had been told of the sequence of preceding events, he fashioned a theory that made sense according to Royce Wayne. e horse had run o when Agner had gone to retrieve the rattler to rectify any suspicion about his presence in the Leighton house. Osborne himself had once been on horseback when the mere scent of a rattler startled his mount. So he speculated that when Agner walked down to his horse and set about to mount him, the animal was panicked by the musty, dank scent of the snake still on his hands. It was as good a theory as any. In any case, Captain Agner was dead. On the Monday following, the turpentiners came up the dusty road in the arid dawn. ere was not so much as a considerate glance to where Agner had fallen by any one of them. e newly assigned foreman rode before them, a spry little fellow with the hum of an Irish jig under his breath. ey passed the Leighton place as usual, though the sand was so dry the wheels of their heavy wagon burrowed as the mules labored ahead. It did not rain that week or the next while Lani lay recovering in the dry, stale heat of her bedroom. Sometimes she would still feel nauseous and a spell of delirium would return with night sweats and a slow, irreconcilable recollection of AgnerÂs menacing approach. She would hear something like the sound of a winch breaking way with the cable whirling from its spooling before the mallet-like strike against her calf, then the sting of it, the sound of gunÂ“ re, the sky su used with the light of a Â“ ery sunset deep into the well of the serpentÂs eye. en she remembered Agner defending her, tossing the heav y snake aside, its head severed from its body. A Bottle of Rain Based on True Levy County LivesTar ey in Toe Top Tow Tree Tug Two Uneasy Uses Vet Vision Vital What Why X-rays Yea Yes Yet ere had not been a day that Drusilla did not come to care for Lani and help her with her personal needs and bedding, cleaning and redressing her wound as Dr Osborne had instructed. Enoch was attentive, too, but appreciated the ÂwomanlyÂŽ assistance. Drusilla read to Lani, and sometimes Enoch would also listen from the cool Â” oor beside his wifeÂs bed. One day as Drusilla was leaving, Enoch came up from watering the okra plants and said, ÂI keep thinkinÂ about something, Miz Drusilla.ÂŽ Drusillia waited on the porch for him to form his question. ÂCaptain Agner,ÂŽ he said Â“ nally, Âhow do you reckon he come to be so close as to kill that rattler, quick as he did? Seems like he had to be right there.ÂŽ Drusilla smiled thoughtfully. ÂWe donÂt know the answer to that, Enoch. We wonÂt ever know. But Captain Agner, well, there are those like him who are as the poets speak of the sea. e same sea that may rage and thrash the sailor against the rocks is the same that may bring one safely to port.ÂŽ ÂI reckon so,ÂŽ Enoch pondered. Â is time we can thank God for the calm he stood.ÂŽ ÂYes,ÂŽ Drusilla continued, Âand now Dr. Osborne tells Royce the weather service is reporting a hurricane out in the Gulf. Perhaps we will only receive a glancing blow with just the rain we need.ÂŽ Â at would sure be welcome,ÂŽ Enoch said after her at the gate. On the day after, the Â“ rst that Lani had been able to sit at their table, Enoch adjusted her chair and Â“ tted a light shawl about her shoulders while an erratic wind tossed in the trees outside. It was then that a sudden drumÂ“ re of rain raced over the tin roof. Enoch went immediately to the front porch and looked out over the parched okra patch in the gloaming. ere was another rush of rain shower, and then it came in a steady downpour that pocked and then drenched the dry sand of the yard. Where there was a gash-like dent in the roof tin, the rainwater poured as if from a spout. Enoch went to a small shelf by the door and took up a clear bottle used for drinking while working in the Â“ eld. He held it where the water poured out and Â“ lled it until brimming over, silken and cool over his rough hand. When he came back into the house, Lani was smiling tearfully. He put the bottle on the table in the lamp light between them and sat across from her, Â“ rmly taking up each of her outstretched hands. ÂYou think that hurricane is gonna get us now?ÂŽ Lani asked. ÂMaybe just enough to get this okra in,ÂŽ Enoch said as bravely as he could. He nodded humbly toward the bottle of rain. Â ereÂs hope right there.ÂŽ ÂIt donÂt matter,ÂŽ Lani said. ÂWeÂll survive it.ÂŽ ÂYes,ÂŽ Enoch answered, managing a smile to match his wifeÂs. ÂWe surely will.ÂŽ (AuthorÂs note: While this story was inspired by true life experiences and family lore told to me by a number of Levy County natives, all characters are ctitious and no reference to any real person is intended or should be inferred.)

Once more, congratulations to the deserving recipients! You deserve a pat on the back. by Lisa Statham Posteraro e Florida Wildlife Federation is proud to announce the 3rd Kid's Wildlife Habitat Contest, open to FloridaÂs children 12 and under. It's easy to enter! Just tell us how your habitat provides food, water, cover, and a place to raise young. Teachers, please note that schoolyard habitats are eligible as long as they are worked in by the children.. e winning habitat will be featured on our website and in our newsletter. We will award a prize of an age-suitable gardening book and a commemorative plaque to the winner. All entries must be received by March 31, 2012. ere is currently great concern among health care specialists, educators, environmentalists, and parents about the shrinking amount of time todayÂs children spend playing outdoors. It is believed that this is increasing obesity as well as other health problems, decreasing Â“ rst-hand observation of basic scientiÂ“ c lessons to be learned from being outdoors and causing a sad disconnect with nature among our youngsters. Most authorities believe it is imperative to get kids to leave the computer games indoors and get outside for healthy activities. e Florida Wildlife Federation is committed to FloridaÂs children as well as to FloridaÂs plants and wildlife. We think there is a way to tie them together promoting health for both kids and critters by encouraging youngsters to start and maintain a wildlife habitat. is is an excellent activity for children 12 and under. It gets them outdoors, keeps them active digging and pulling the inevitable weeds, sparks an interest in gardening, teaches them something about identifying both plants and animals in the natural world, and (important to all parents), keeps them from wandering to places where they might not be safe. ough we do encourage certiÂ“ cation by National Wildlife Federation, it is not necessary for this contest. Just tell us how this habitat provides water, food, cover, and a place to raise young. We will send an announcement of winning kids or schools to your local newspapers (with your permission, of course). Go to www.fwfonline.org and look at the Habitat PowerPoint there for help and ideas. Email email@example.com for more information and to enter by sending photos and a description of your habitat.

Donations requested at the door.continued on page 7 Many people whoÂve heard our loud Christian rock band Soulfood canÂt believe we also play a couple of nursing homes regularly. In fact, youÂd probably look at me sideways too if I told you we even bring our drums; (albeit we switch to the electronic kind with a handy dandy volume control.) We also switch to acoustic guitars, but donÂt think for a minute we hold back one ounce of our enthusiasm for praising the Lord. We still rock the same up-tempo worship grooves we do at any big festival. No one in Soulfood was fortunate enough to grow up in church, so we donÂt know any of the old hymns. I reckon if we did, we still wouldnÂt play them. e patients already get a steady diet of those. We feel the Lord wants us to give them the very best of what He has given us. ey can always back their hearing aids down a notch if need be. We do try to be careful and notice if a new patient seems a bit wary after being wheeled in. eyÂre always the ones eyeballing our speakers, almost thinking aloud, ÂOh Lord! Who are these Whipper-Snappers?ÂŽ IÂll shoot them a reassuring smile and a word of encouragement. If I can get them to relax, I know theyÂll soon taste the loving presence of the Holy Spirit and let their guard down. Soon theyÂll be clapping and shouting along with the rest of us. By GodÂs grace, we havenÂt run across a patient or sta member yet we havenÂt been able to win over after a few songs. As you may know, heaviness can prevail at times in a nursing home. Su ering and loneliness are not strangers in those long hallways. ey can meet you at the door and haunt your soul if youÂre not prepared. It was di cult for us to deal with at Â“ rst. But since our mission was to bring the joy and hope of Jesus, we pressed on. We found when people are praising God those dark forces scat and make themselves scarcer than a Â“ eld mouse at a Tanzanian tomcat training camp! IÂm ashamed to admit that when we Â“ rst started visiting nursing homes we thought we had something new to share. RIGHT!!! Some of these saints were serving the Lord back before the ink had dried good on the Old Testament! ItÂs Soulfood that has learned a thing or two, and weÂve been the major recipient of the joy and encouragement involved in this endeavor. I canÂt tell you how many dear saints IÂve met whoÂve blessed my soul. During our prayer times they share with me such unbelievably encouraging testimonies of GodÂs faithfulness. Some may be su ering greatly the ravages of age and illness in their bodies, but spiritually they are absolute giants. Just last Sunday a dear little lady patted my hand and conÂ“ ded that though she has no one to visit her, she has never been more fulÂ“ lled. An indescribable gleam graced her eyes as she added, ÂJesus is always with me. I wouldnÂt trade my lot in life with anyone!ÂŽ She was simply beside herself. Can you believe that? In this place where so many strive to simply endure, she has found an oasis with the Lord. I gazed into her countenance and found myself envious. I was staring into the Truth of GodÂs promises found in Psalms 139. All my agendas suddenly seemed so small. She had found the Pearl of a great price; the reason for life itself. I must admit, weÂve been doing this for years now and IÂve been woefully resistant to share the experience. IÂve been worried people might Â“ nd out what a great time there is to be had down at the nursing home and book up all the prime dates. We just couldnÂt stand being bumped out of this good thing weÂve found. For me and the boys, this is it; the most pure and unadulterated example of why we do what we do. I sorely wish someone could get in there and Â“ nd a way to get these incredible testimonies out to the world though. I know there are restrictions and sensitivities because of regulations written to protect patients, but it would be so awesome for someone to sound this trumpet of GodÂs faithfulness. ese dear saints are like nothing IÂve ever seen or heard. You simply canÂt take in the fullness of what they have to express and go on denying God is real, or that He is Love. But anywayI double dog dare you to drive down to your local nursing home and spend some time making friends. Chances are youÂll agree these saints are a much overlooked treasure in the body of Christ.-Guy She eld 3-22-07 You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she firstname.lastname@example.org.

The DistrictÂ’s Annual Regulatory Plan for July 2011 Â– June 2012 identifies rulemaking initiatives that are intended to amend or repeal outdated rules, re duce costs and implement changes that would reduce burdens and achieve other streamlining benefits for the regulated public.
