On April 10 Detective Roger Bell arrested Robert Carter, 20, of Williston; Christopher Chapin, 24, of Williston; James Perry, 22, of Bronson and Darren Reese, 22, of Williston on multiple felony charges. e investigation began in February 2012 when Levy County farmers began reporting the theft of copper wire from irrigation pivots. During the cover of darkness the thieves would steal the copper wire from the pivots in very remote areas in Williston and Chie” and. From February through April the subjects stole copper wire from over seven di erent farms. e subjects sometimes hit farms multiple times and even struck two pivots that were brand new and never been used. e copper wire was valued at over $50,000 dollars not to mention the aggravation of the farmers not being able to water their crops and the damage to the pivots. Due to good old-fashioned police work the Task Force drag net tightened and on April 10 Detective Roger Bell, Deputy Scott Stancil and Sgt. Mike Narayan located Chapin, Reese and Carter at 14431 NE 50th Place in Williston. While detectives and deputies conducted interviews with witnesses and suspects they located evidence showing the suspects were burning the wire behind the house to bare the copper wire. ey then scrapped the copper to local salvage yards in Williston. While conducting the investigation at the Williston home detectives noticed marijuana plants behind the house. Robert Carter admitted to growing marijuana and he was charged with cultivation of marijuana, which is a felony charge. Carter was also a suspect in a burglary case unrelated to the pivot thefts. Carter was arrested for burglary, grand theft auto and dealing in stolen property by Corporal Mike Bell. e suspects were transported to the Sheri 's O ce for further questioning based on witness testimony. Detective Roger Bell obtained confessions from Carter, Chapin and Reese stating they were responsible for stealing wire from seven irrigation pivots in the Williston and Chie” and areas. e suspects also revealed that James Allen Perry from Bronson was involved in the thefts. Sgt. Mike Narayan and Major Evan Sullivan located Perry at a Bronson home and he was brought in for questioning. Perry admitted to stealing, assisting as a look out and driving the car to the farmers “ eld. In addition to confessing to all the pivot thefts in the Williston and Chie” and areas, the suspects also revealed their plan to do six more pivot thefts the next night in Chie” and. Since the inception of the full time Ag/Marine Unit Lt. Shawn Hunt has been extremely busy. Maj. Sullivan would like to remind all farmers of the LCSO Ag Watch Program. e Ag Watch Program was developed in 2008 as a means to identify ownership of agriculture properties in Levy County. e program consists of No Trespassing signs and has a code on the Ag Watch signs listing the property/business owner's name and a code number providing deputies on patrol instant access to owner information and agent/lease agreements. e Ag Watch Farm Theft Robbers Arrested by Levy County Task Force Unit Election Time Approaching By Kathy HilliardEditor e time for being ready to vote is coming upon Levy County and this nation and there are some details to attend to ahead of time if you want to vote.

It is the policy of the Levy County Journal not to endorse candidates. It is our job to provide the information to the citizens of Levy County to make their own decisions. According to omas Je erson in his correspondence to W. Jarvis in 1820, I know no safe depositary of the ultimate powers of the society but the people themselves; and if we think them not enlightened enough to exercise their control with a wholesome discretion, the remedy is not to take it from them, but to inform their discretion by education. is is the true corrective of abuses of constitutional power.Ž It will be the endeavor of the Levy County Journal to add to the website list and to this newsprint, information on candidates as the candidates send it to us and also what is relative to the voting process for all to make an informative vote. Je erson also stated to E. Carrington in 1787,  e basis of our governments being the opinion of the people, the very “ rst object should be to keep that right; and were it left to me to decide whether we should have a government without newspapers or newspapers without a government, I would not hesitate a moment to prefer the latter. But I should mean that every man should receive those papers and be capable of reading them.Ž e Levy County Journal trusts that the good citizens of Levy County will apply good diligence in their process of deciding the candidates to represent this area in keeping with our values and our culture as it has been over the many years.

The Levy County Journal 3AApril 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Will Irby’s Florida StoriesIllustration by Alexander KeyMarjorie HaleGracefully Southern Marjorie Hale was to the family farm born. e soft hills of Marion and Levy counties and their agricultural traditions have rendered her family good work on good ground from the time of Floridas “ rst pioneers. I had a delightful lunch with Marjorie Hale recently. Prim and proper she is, and the epitome of graceful Southern style with still a schoolgirl smile. And she loves to cook. She has three dining tables in her own home, she tells me. is table (the one at which we were sitting) was once in her celebrated, award-winning Ivy House Restaurant in Williston … consistently listed as one of best restaurants in Florida. Her other restaurant located in a Victorian manse over in Alachua, is just as good. ey serve the same family recipes, each establishment now extending Margies generous family kitchen to dining rooms homey as the Hale house out on the farm. I had ordered the fried shrimp. I almost always order the fried shrimp. Ill say why in a minute. Now Margie was telling me about her daddy, how she was raised out in Marion County just across the Levy line out on 318.  ey called it Elmwood out there,Ž she remembers. My daddy, Ambus Julian Ray … isnt that just a beautiful name? … he farmed eighty acres, mostly produce, row crops. Everything good to eat, you know, and he also grew chufa for the hogs.Ž Margie remembers,  is fellow came around, we were just coming out of the Depression, see, and this ol fellow would come by with a butchered beef laid out on palmetto fans in the bed of his pickup truck. Hed stop and just slice o what you wanted. ats how we got our fresh beef in those days.Ž It does not escape Margie Hale even now that eating is an act of agriculture. She speaks sweetly of the connection between eating and the land, the connection of land with her farm family roots, the value of heritage and her sense of place. And those recipes that serve as chapters in a guide book to her culinary legacy and home-spun me mories. Of a lifetime in farming and small-town commerce she says with a wistful sigh, Weve been making memories. So many blessings.Ž Many are the blessings shared, both as recipes and fond recollections in her popular cookbook, Gracefully Southern, thoughtfully subtitled, A Collection of Recipes from Our House to Yours.Ž at fried shrimp I mentioned, that recipes not in the book. Were not ready to give that one out just yet,Ž Margie explains with a reticent smile. Okay, but I already know where that recipe came from. Her husband Freddie, he told me. And thats all he told me (about that, I mean). Margie says with her eyes wide with pride, Freddie, he was always my biggest and best supporter. I know hes gone to be with Jesus now, but he still is,Ž she adds more softly, my biggest fan.Ž Freddie Hale was a friend of mine. I treasured his curious take on things, his tall tales, quips and jabs, jokes and playful pokes at politics or daily things, folk passing in the parade of life. Particularly as he spied these things from where he often held court on the front porch of the Ivy House. Freddie would call sometimes and say,Ž Will, come up heah to the Ivy House and eat some shrimps with me.Ž I would whenever I could, and inevitably Id get around to baiting him about the recipe for those shrimps. Freddie would say, Now, Will, look heah, them women dont tell me nothin about them recipes. I mean nothin! You know Id tell you, and they do, too. You and the next one. So they dont tell me nothin about no recipes!Ž But what he did tell me was how Margie (hed say, MaahgeŽor usually, My little MaahgeeŽ) came by the recipe for them shrimps I liked so much. at, as Margie veri“ ed, was when she was a high school girl, and would ride the Greyhound bus up from Dunnellon on Friday afternoons to stay the weekend with her sister Nettie Gri n who owned (some 40 years) a popular Williston landmark restaurant, the Chick Inn. Oh, yes. Whew,Ž Margie acknowledged, we sure worked in the restaurant business in those days. I did everything from peel potatoes to hop the curb. ( e Chick Inn, now a parking lot, had curb service in those days.) She also peeled and deveined and splayed the shrimp just so. e recipe was Netties and she learned it there. But about Freddie, it didnt take long for him to “ nd out about the pretty little dark-haired gal with eyes shiny as washed grapesŽ working the counter. He said, Will, you know one night I sat out in my car combing my hair for ten minutes for I went in theah to see that pretty little thing.Ž Maybe it was because he threatened to drive over the edge of the lime rock mine if she didnt go out with him that she “ nally did. at was after hed told her there was no sense in her having to ride that ol Greyhound home after the weekend. Id sure be proud to drive ya home.Ž Lord, no!Ž Margie told him. My Daddy would kill me!Ž How times have changed. Freddie and Margie married and made their home out at the Hale Farm where Margie soon showed herself to be more than that pretty little thing.Ž e Hales had an old farm truck, a behemoth of rumbling, parched metal and heavy tires. Lithe and sprite, Margie would scramble from the running board to the hood and use a wooden dipstick to check the fuel level. She recalled, My father-in-law, Newt Hale, he really liked me jumping up there like that. It kind of tickled him and won him over.Ž at and the long hours she and Freddie worked clearing the land. ey cut timber. Freddie hauled the logs, but Margie wasnt afraid to reposition a truck when the need arose. Id try to do most anything,Ž she says, confessing she could hardly see up over the steering wheel. When the roots had been grubbed, the new groundŽ raked and harrowed, they plowed for planting. We planted watermelons then,Ž Margie tells. Dont you just know nothin grows a watermelon like new ground? We had some “ ne, “ ne crops in those days.Ž ey also had some “ ne, “ ne meals and many of the recipes she acquired then she re“ ned and brought forward with her into the years after her children were born. e house was built and the renovations made, as more room was needed and there were more to feed … family and friends. Sometimes as many as 40 at a time,Ž Margie beams. And she found that feeding folk was the very thing she liked and says she did best. Nobody argued with that. Instead, they said she ought to have a restaurant, even if she didnt think the time was right. en, as Margie likes to tell, there came a time later in which she would go to a church conference for women. e guest speaker there told her that God was going to use her in a special way that would touch peoples lives. I said to myself, I cant do anything but cook!Ž Margies cookbook, as healthy with spiritual inspiration as it is delicious to read, is already in its second printing. Margie doesnt take the credit for that either. God has blessed us. And weve all worked so hard,Ž she says adoringly of her family. Daughters, granddaughters, oh I dont know, theyre all my girls. Each has her special talent.Ž She explains, savoring their names and contributions like a poem she knows by heart. My Myra, she bakes the most wonderful cakes and pies. And Ann, she makes everyone feel so welcomed and warm with such charm, and Evelyn, shes my promoter. Shell get on that phone and get things doneƒŽ And on into the next generation Margie goes, Waica, shes my right hand now. Cooks as good as I do and does the catering, too. And Micala and Alesha, Brittany, theyve all worked as servers … one time or anotherso sweet, just precious each in their own way, every single one.Ž She doesnt stop there as more family and friends are named, many who also work or have worked in the restaurant or boutique upstairs. All the while shes sharing these thoughts, some of those mentioned appear as though they were real-life characters in a happy play about the best country dinning ever. Is everything cooked just right?Ž they all want to know. You eat the fried chicken, the purlowŽ or beef tips in gravy over rice, the purple slaw or eggplant casserole and you get to wondering that we dont think about food like we used to. So few of us now work the ground to put food on our tables, or cook it as once folk did. We dont associate our eating it with family farming or the land anymore. So much is processed, precooked and heated by remote control. But at the Ivy House, they do. ese folks know. ey remember. Margie does and so do the children. Shes taught them well. ey know about the shucking, shelling and peeling, the stirring, the baking, the chopping, grating, frying lightly and the fast and graceful art of keeping glasses full.  is is about family,Ž Margie Hale says to me. We still spread those tables down at the farm. ats our farm family. is (she raises her arm to the room of people eating heartily about us) is our family, too.Ž e last Cedar Key Arts Center Gallery Opening of the Season was well attended on the evening of Sat.

The Levy County Journal4AApril 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Mixing and Matching Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateApparently the soaring national debt and the threat of a nuclear Iran are not enough to occupy the governments time, because the Obama administration is pushing to force Westchester County, N.Y., to create more low-income housing, in order to mix and match classes and races to “ t the governments preconceptions. Behind all this busy work for bureaucrats and ideologues is the idea that there is something wrong if a community does not have an even or random distribution of various kinds of people. is arbitrary assumption is that the absence of evenness or randomness -whether in employment, housing or innumerable other situations -shows a problemŽ that has to be corrected.Ž No speck of evidence is considered necessary for this assumption to prevail at any level of government, including the Supreme Court of the United States. No one has to show the existence, much less the prevalence, of an even or random distribution of di erent segments of the population -in any country, anywhere in the world, or at any period of history. Nothing is more common than for people to sort themselves out when it comes to residential housing, whether by class, race or other factors. When there was a large Jewish population living on New Yorks lower east side, a century ago, Jews did not live at random among themselves. Polish Jews had their neighborhoods, Rumanian Jews theirs, and so on. Meanwhile German Jews lived uptown. In Chicago, when Eastern European Jews began moving into German Jewish neighborhoods, German Jews began moving out. It was much the same story in Harlem or in other urban ghettoes, where blacks did not live at random among themselves. Landmark scholarly studies by E. Franklin Frazier in the 1930s showed in detail how di erent neighborhoods within the ghettoes had people of di erent educational and income levels, with di erent male\female ratios and di erent ways of life living in di erent places. ere was nothing random about it. Within Chicagos black community, the delinquency rate ranged from more than 40 percent in some black neighborhoods to less than 2 percent in other black neighborhoods. People sort themselves out. None of this was peculiar to blacks or Jews, or to the United States. When emigrants from Scotland went to Australia, the Scottish highlanders settled separately from the Scottish lowlanders. So did emigrants from northern Italy and southern Italy. Separate residential patterns that are visible to the naked eye, when the people are black and white, are also pervasive among people who physically all look alike. Charles Murrays eye-opening new book, Coming Apart,Ž shows in detail how di erent segments of the white American population not only live separately from each other but have very di erent ways of life -and are growing increasingly remote from one another in beliefs and behavior. None of this matters to politicians and ideologues who are hell-bent to mix and match people according to their own preconceptions. Moreover, like many things that the government does, it does residential integration more crudely than when people sort themselves out. Back in the days when E. Franklin Frazier was doing his scholarly studies of the composition and expansion of black ghettoes, he found the most educated and cultured elements of the black communities living on the periphery of these communities. It was these kinds of people who typically led the expansion of the black community into the surrounding white communities. By contrast, government programs often take dysfunctional families from high crime ghetto neighborhoods and put them down in the midst of middle-class neighborhoods by subsidizing their housing. Whether these middle-class neighborhoods are already either predominantly black or predominantly white, the residents are often outraged at the increased crime and other behavior problems in” icted on them by politicians and bureaucrats. But their complaints usually fall on deaf ears. People convinced of their own superior wisdom and virtue have no time to spare for what other people want, whether in housing or health care or a whole range of other things. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COMReal Moms of the GOP vs. White House SOP OPINION Michelle MalkinCreators Syndicate e authenticity of conservative women has always been under attack by radical orthodox feminists, but perhaps not as brazenly as by someone with such direct and frequent access to the corridors of the White House message machine as Hilary B. Rosen. e D.C. career lobbyist and Democratic media strategist took to CNNs airwaves this week to craft a left-wing War on WomenŽ attack on the real moms of the GOP. Ostensibly aiming at Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for his oldfashionedŽ views of women, Rosens mouth instead shot o in the direction of wife, stay-at-home mother of “ ve, grandmother of 16, and cancer and multiple sclerosis survivor Ann Romney. Mrs. Romney, sneered Rosen, never worked a day in her lifeŽ outside of the home and should have no voice on womens issues. President Obama never met a payroll in his life, but that hasnt stopped him from dictating what business owners across the country should and shouldnt be doing. But I digress. is was no accidental rhetorical driveby. ProgressivesŽ from Gloria Steinem to Patricia Ireland to Naomi Wolf have derided their conservative counterparts as female impersonators, fake women and men with breasts from time immemorial. Its SOP: standard operating procedure. In 1992, Hillary Clinton mocked women who stayed at home and baked cookies and had teas.Ž In 2004, blueblood Teresa Heinz Kerry, wife of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. John Kerry, sni ed that “ rst lady Laura Bush (a former teacher and librarian before becoming a homemaker) never had a real job -I mean, since shes been grown up.Ž Alas, if youre a conservative mom, youre damned if you do stay home and damned if you dont. In 2008, Howard Gutman, a member of the Obama campaigns national “ nance committee, attacked GOP vice presidential candidate and former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palins ability to be a good parent and have a high-powered public life at the same time. Your responsibility is to put your family “ rst,Ž Gutman lectured as he singled out Palins Down syndrome baby and then-pregnant teenage daughter.  e proper attack is not that a woman shouldnt run for vice president with “ ve kids; its that a parent, when they have a family in need...Ž should get out of the public sphere and stay home. Whats striking about Rosens latest ideological sniper attack is that she is not some lone-wolf operative on the fringes of Beltway in” uence. She works with former White House communications director Anita Dunn at the D.C.-based strategic communications consulting “ rm SKDKnickerbocker. ats the same company that promoted the anti-Palin smear movie Game ChangeŽ and that represented liberal Georgetown law school student activist and manufactured War on Women poster woman Sandra Fluke. Smack dab at the intersection of progressive agitation and Democratic Party campaign-season maneuvering. White House visitor logs (which nonpartisan watchdogs point out are woefully incomplete) show that Hilary B. RosenŽ or Hilary RosenŽ has visited 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. at least 35 times, including several direct meetings with President Obama (5); White House senior adviser and consigliere Valerie Jarrett; senior adviser David Axelrod; senior adviser turned 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina; and a parade of communications/media team o cials in both the West Wing surrogate bookingŽ o ce and the East Wing. Axelrod and Messina, who took to Twitter immediately ursday night after the social networking site exploded with a conservative mom backlash, scrambled to disassociate themselves from their frequent visitor. POTUS and FLOTUS followed suit. But when you collect and connect the dots, Rosens role as a surrogate hit-woman for the White House is unmistakable. Rosen was forced to issue a non-apology apology as Democratic women tossed her under the bus (or at least shoved her temporarily to the back until things boil over). Whats changed in 2012 is the Internet revenge of thousands of conservative female activists who have played a larger role than ever in controlling political narratives. ese include tea party leaders such as Breitbart. com editor Dana Loesch, national grassroots groups such as Smart Girl Politics, the proliferation of conservative female bloggers and podcasters, and the critical mass of stay-at-home moms, work-at-home moms and young conservative women ” ocking to Twitter. As weve documented at my new Twitter curation/aggregation site, Twitchy.com, GOP moms, grandmothers and daughters have besieged White House social media e orts to paint conservatives as anti-women. eyve torn apart hypocritical White House rhetoric about equal pay from an administration that has failed to practice what it preaches. And as Ann Romney is now experiencing on Twitter, the women of the right are “ ghting their way through a hostile cesspool of misogyny that has been SOP for the feminist left. Rosen and her media defenders dismissed faux outrageŽ about her attack. But the real moms of the GOP have launched their own Occupy movement in the social media space once dominated by Obamas army. And theyre winning. Michelle Malkin is the author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and his Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks & CroniesŽ (Regnery 2010). Her e-mail address is malkinblog@gmail.com.

Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Purchasing Policy Meets Local Preference Kathy HilliardEditor e Board of County Commissioners met today with a varied and interesting agenda that ran smoothly. But we at the Journal would like to bring it up again … Local Preference and the Purchasing Policy of Levy County. Not that it is bad … just that we need one “ nalized. We are interested in this issue about businesses in Levy County, especially locally-based businesses, because we are a locally-based business. At the meeting this morning the agenda included the much needed issue of replacing the antique and obsolete computers needed to facilitate the Emergency Management Services Operations Center of Levy County. And this is a most valid need. How are we to properly run such an important agency as the EMS Operations Center without computers able to run the programs to keep Levy County residents safe.All the prices for the approximately $20,000 package of desktop and laptop computers were from online distributors. ere was no pricing in place from a local company. ese were quotes for prices not bids.A call to EMS was made in the afternoon but we were unable to speak to anyone with information at that time. So we decided to call a local company that handles our computer needs professionally and inline “ nancially with online companies, Gator Works Computing in Chie” and. Gator Works Computing has been in Chie” and for 16 years. When asked if they knew about the bid for computers for the EMS Operations Center, Donna Maynard, vice president of Gator Works Computing, said No.Ž Donna explained that they were not aware of the needs of the EMS and that they would de“ nitely be able to “ ll the need and at a competitive price. e question of a “ nalized Purchasing Policy with Local Preference for Local Businesses again becomes important for the businesses of Levy County. Advertising Notices to Bid is a time consuming procedure and when the county needs to quickly serve the citizens of the county another venue is needed. A website advertising the current needs of Levy County where local businesses can check on what items or services they might be able to participate in with the county could serve that purpose. More and more it is evident that for the businesses of Levy County to be able to partner with the county, there must be a bona “ de Purchasing Policy inclusive of giving Local Preference to Local Businesses. at policy has been in the works for some time now but as the county expands and grows it is becoming very evident that the parameters for e ciency in that growth are needed sooner, not later. e Levy County Journal is still “ ghting to uphold the locally-based businesses of Levy County and believes that local preference can be accomplished through many avenues but cannot go forward without “ nalizing a policy that partners with local businesses to accomplish the goal of giving preference, if it is possible to do, to the people that live here, work here, start businesses here, eat here, buy here, go to school here or retire here.

Over the years it has become easier to save energy and produce less pollution in the air through energy saving practices and Energy Star qualifying products. If you take a look around your home you will probably “ nd a few appliances that have the Energy Star sticker on it. Even computers come with Energy Star stickers, as well as monitors. However, there are ways you can conserve even more energy while using your computer. If you have a desktop computer, there are a few di erent things that you can do to start saving more energy. First, you may want to look at options such as changing the Power or Display Settings, which would allow the computer to use less energy while still working properly. To check your Power Settings in Windows 7, go to your Start MenuŽ and click on Control PanelŽ. Once you are in the Control Panel, scroll down and click on Power Options.Ž When the Power Options window opens, look towards the left side of the screen and click on Change When the Computer Sleeps.Ž en you will have the option to change the Turn o DisplayŽ timing. You can also choose to check the Advanced SettingsŽ where you can select the Power SaverŽ option from this screen. Some other simple ways to save energy are reducing the brightness of your screen display or opting to use no screensaver. Using a screensaver requires energy to run and even though you are not using the computer during peak times, it is still on. If you also “ nd yourself walking away from your computer for longer periods of time while it is still on, you should consider shutting it down completely. e same is true for printers and scanners. is way you would only use electricity when needed. Once all of your devices are o you can turn o your power surge protector as well. Rest assured, even while its turned o your computer and electronic equipment will be safe, as electrical currents will not be able to pass through the surge protector to your devices. Monitors (screen) have also joined in on the energy saving bandwagon. e ” at screen monitors generally use about 1/3 of the energy the older box shaped monitors use, especially if they are Energy Star. It has been known that people who use Energy Star monitors usually save about $85.00 a year. Laptops also have additional energy saving options. Just by choosing to use a laptop over a desktop, you are already using less energy. Unlike desktops you have the option of running a laptop through the battery instead of constantly having to connect to an electrical outlet. When it comes to charging your laptop you will only want to keep the charger plugged in until the battery is fully charged. en, unplug the charger and use the battery all the way down. is not only uses less power but it also extends the life of your battery. Keeping your charger connected all the time basically trains your battery to stay drained because it has become accustomed to a low charge. Changing the power options on laptops is basically the same as changing them on desktops, which allows the laptop to run longer on battery power. So as you can see there are many ways of conserving energy every day in your home or on the go, whether its from Energy Star qualifying products or making small changes on your computer. Either way, you will be able to save more energy and feel good about contributing to Going Green.

Over the coming weeks and months, it is likely that Florida will experience very high to extreme wild“ re danger due to these dry conditions. It is critical for Floridians to take steps to ensure their own safety.Ž e departments Florida Forest Service manages more than one million acres of public forest land and protects over 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating e ects of wild“ re. Since January 1, more than 1,100 wild“ res have burned nearly 20,000 acres in Florida. Most of these “ res were caused by human carelessness. To prevent wild“ res, follow these “ ve simple steps: 1. Check with local authorities for any temporary restrictions on burning yard waste; 2. Contain “ res to an eight-foot diameter pile or non-combustible barrel at least 25 feet from forests, 25 feet from homes, 50 feet from paved public roads and 150 feet from other occupied buildings; 3. Do not burn on windy days or when the humidity is below 30 percent; 4. Never leave a “ re unattended and make sure it is completely out before leaving; 5. Keep a shovel and water hose handy in case a small “ re escapes containment. In addition to the tips listed above, Floridians should also report any suspicious “ res or “ re activity to 911 or their local Florida Forest Service o ce. In 2011, the Florida Forest Service responded to more than 4,700 wild“ res that burned over 220,000 acres, a 32 percent increase from the previous year. Fire“ ghters saved more than 1,100 homes and business in Florida. For statewide wild“ re updates and additional wild“ re information, visit www. ” oridaforestservice.com or follow the departments Florida Forest Service on Facebook or Twitter. e Club had it monthly meeting on the “ rst ursday of April.

And doingŽ happens often in Kathy Brewingtons 5th grade class, especially when it comes to science, thanks to SUMS, the hands-on curriculum for Florida students to understand math and science! Recently, her students built houses from craft sticks, and they wiredŽ them by making an electrical circuit. (Some classes opted to make ” ashlightsŽ in lieu of houses.) We hot glued the ” oor, then we placed the battery on the ” oor. We couldnt hot glue it,Ž said Carly Wilson. When we built the roof, we made it into a V-shape, maybe four or “ ve sticks long,Ž added Frankie Cittadini. We made a platform for the light bulb which we attached to one of the walls,Ž continued Carly.  en Mrs. Brewington told us we had to build a door,Ž said Frankie. We connected the wires from the battery terminals to the clip that was on the light bulb,Ž said Carly. After we did this, then we could set the roof on the walls and secure them. I also built a balcony on mine,Ž said Frankie.  en we were ready to turn on the light by completing the circuit between the battery and the light bulb. I learned that a complete circuit can activate somethingƒlike a light bulb. A broken circuit, though. Its kinda like jogging on a track. If someone put something on the track that was in your way, you would have to stopƒyou couldnt run through it. But if someone cleared away what was on the truck, then you could complete the circuitƒit would be a ” ow.Ž We also put houses in the furniture to make it realistic,Ž chuckled Carly. In addition to making these houses, Brewingtons students also builtŽ Easter bunnies to take to the elderly. We always did community service as part of our curriculum when we had the Alpha program here,Ž said Brewington. Hunter Williams explained how they made these bunnies.  e heads were Styrofoam, and we made the bodies out of cups. e tail, nose and whiskers were out of cotton balls. e ears were cloth. ey had real buttons and those eyes you buy in craft stores.

The Levy County Journal8AApril 19, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned Paper of Record since 1923 Citizens and friends of Levy County, My name is John Meeks and I wish to represent you as your next District One County Commissioner. After a lot of prayer and discussion with my immediate family I decided to pursue my lifelong goal to represent the people of Levy County. Born and raised in Bronson I am a “ fth generation Levy County citizen. I graduated from Bronson High School in 1994. My senior year I served as class president and captain of the football team. Upon graduation, I began working at Bronson Ace Hardware while attending Santa Fe Community College where I earned an A.A. Degree. I then enrolled at the University of Florida. During my time at UF, I continued to work and advance at Bronson Ace Hardware. In May of 2002, I earned a bachelors degree in History and graduated from UF. Working my way through college and earning my college degrees taught me the value of hard work and dedication. Later in October of the same year, I married the love of my life, Stephanie Nettles. We have three wonderful boys: Liam (6), Carson (4), and Nolan (19 mos). Stephanie is a RN, in the NICU, at Shands Hospital. Liam started kindergarten this year at Bronson Elementary School. It has been a joyful experience watching my children grow and also spend time with my parents, Robert and Mary Boettcher Meeks. Giving back to the community has always been a top priority for me. rough the years, I have been a member of many clubs and served on various committees. I am currently the President of the Bronson Chamber of Commerce. I also am proud to serve the veterans of Levy County as the “ nance o cer for the Sons of Am Vets. One of my proudest accomplishments was serving on the Citizens Advisory Task Force. In a four-year cycle we were able to secure two federal housing grants. ese grants brought over two-hundred thousand dollars to rehab and rebuild homes in our community. Another passion of mine is being the voice of the Bronson Eagles every fall for the home football games. Like every other country boy my hobbies include hunting, “ shing, and spending time with my children. My family and I also attend the Ellzey United Methodist Church. Since graduating from the University of Florida I have been promoted to manager at Bronson Ace Hardware, where I continue to work to this day. e experience of running a business has taught me many valuable lessons including: dealing with the public, managing “ nances and payroll, and helping build a business from the ground up. ese are all valuable lessons I will use to serve you, the citizens of Levy County. I believe there is a delicate balance that can be maintained between progress and keeping the county the way we all enjoy it now. ere is a de“ nite need in our county for more jobs and clean industry. I will work to attract businesses so more people will be employed, and more importantly, so our children can live and thrive in Levy County. In these poor economic times the last thing we need is a representative that is going to cost the taxpayers more money, increase taxes, or spend wastefully. With this in mind, I will seek revenues from places other than the pockets of property owners in our county. We should secure grant money to fund projects such as improving our infrastructure and improving public safety. As a servant of the people, I promise to do what is best for the county. I will use common sense when making the tough decisions that must be made. As your commissioner my goal is to serve you, the people of Levy County, to the best of my ability. Please remember to vote on August 14 for, John Meeks, County Commissioner District one. I appreciate your support. ank you! For more information feel free to contact me. John Meeks Running for District 1 Commissioner Lost DogSkyler is a 2 yr old Beagle X Walker Mix, spayed female, family pet. She is missing since last Wed., Apr 11th, from her home in the Old Judson area outside of Trenton (west of Pine Grove Baptist Church). She is wearing a red collar with her rabies tag.

SECTION BFrom Bronson to All Humanity Jackson-Shands Connection Part of World History‘A Friend to All Humanity’By E. Russell Jackson Jr. and Glenn E. Bryan, M.D. is article is reprinted with permission from the Florida Medical Association. e world famous Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami owes its existence to the son of a country doctor who became Miamis “ rst physician and a leader in organized medicine. James M. Jackson, M.D., the Florida Medical Associations 30th President, started the Miami City Hospital, which was later named in his honor and is now the teaching hospital for the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. Dr. Jackson had another extraordinary connection: his mother, Mary Glenn Shands, was the great aunt of the late Sen. William Augustine Shands, who served as Florida Senate President in 1957 and was a leading advocate for the establishment of the University of Florida College of Medicine in Gainesville. Shands Teaching Hospital is named for the senator. ough he died relatively young at age 58 in 1924, Dr. Jackson made a lasting impact on medicine in Florida, the state of his birth.Family traditionDr. Jacksons father, James Madison Jackson, M.D., was born in 1831 in Chester District, South Carolina, and graduated from the Medical College of New Orleans, later known as Tulane University. e elder Dr. Jackson settled in White Springs in northern Florida on the banks of the Suwannee river. In 1858, he married South Carolina native Mary Glenn Shands, and they moved to what is now Sanford, Fla. e 1860 census listed him as the only quali“ ed physician there. Dr. Jackson served in the confederate army during the Civil War in the Florida Cavalry and in other companies as a surgeon. After the war, he returned to White Springs where the Jacksons son, James Mary Jackson, was born on March 10, 1866. Two years later the family moved to Levy County and the town of Bronson where the elder Dr. Jackson would serve as the areas country doctor for the rest of his career. He opened a drug store, owned citrus groves, served as Mayor of Bronson, its postmaster, and superintendent of the Bronson Methodist Church. In 1881, the elder Dr. Jackson attended the Florida Medical Association Annual Meeting in Tallahassee and was elected Second Vice President. He continued to pay his annual dues to the FMA almost to the time of his death in 1911.Making History e younger James Jackson attended East Florida Seminary in Gainesville, a predecessor of the University of Florida, and received a bachelors degree from Emory University in 1885. Wanting to follow in his fathers footsteps as a physician rather than manage the familys citrus groves, he entered the Bellevue Hospital Medical College in New York City that year. He later returned to Bellevue, graduated the following spring with his M.D. degree, and joined his fathers medical practice in Bronson. To peoples surprise today, Bronson had at that time about 5,000 residents and could support two physicians. However, freezes in 1894 and 1895 destroyed much of the citrus trees in the Florida, leading large numbers of people to leave Bronson. Miami was one part of the state that had escaped the freeze, which inspired industrialist Henry Flagler to extend his Florida East Coast Railroad even further south from Lake Worth to the newly developing town of Miami. ere, Flagler would build Miamis “ rst luxury hotel, the Royal Palm, and attract settlers and tourists who would need a physician. After young Dr. Jackson had practiced with his father in Bronson for eight years, Flagler asked him to be his physician in residence for the Florida East Coast Railroad in Miami. In March of 1896, Dr. Jackson took Flaglers railroad to Fort Lauderdale, then its southern most terminus, and went by boat the rest of the way. He thought at “ rst that the rudimentary town, with its unpaved roads and unpainted buildings, was not a great place to live. But unable to leave by any means that day, he stayed for several days and the towns leaders persuaded him to move there. He wrote his wife, Ethel Barco,  is Miami spirit is a great thing. It is infectious.Ž When Miami was incorporated in July of 1896, he was the sole physician residing in Miami. In addition to his duties as the railroad surgeon, he was appointed in May of 1896 as the local health o cer for the Florida State Board of Health by the State Health O cer, Joseph Yates Porter, M.D. When the Royal Palm Hotel opened in January of 1897, Dr. Jackson also became the hotel physician. He brought and enforced basic sanitation measures, organized the Miami City Board of Health, and as the County Health O cer quarantined the city during the yellow fever epidemic of 1899. Dr. Jackson built his o ce and surgery behind his home in downtown Miami on what is now N.E. 2nd Ave. e building was moved in 1917 to its present location at 190 S.E. 12 Terrace and has been designated as a historic site. Community leaders recognized early on that Miami needed a hospital within the city limits. Tourists and indigents became ill and Miami had no place to care for them. An emergency hospital had been erected during the yellow fever epidemic of 1899, and Drs. Jackson and Porter were in charge until the hospital was burned to the ground after the epidemic. Also that year, Flagler erected a framed hospital building with the proviso that the city equip, sta and administer the hospital. e city was unable to raise the necessary funds, so he turned the building into an apartment house. As Flagler began to extend his railroad in 1905 south of Miami towards Key West, large work gangs arrived in Miami, and the apartment house was reconverted to a hospital with Dr. Jackson in charge. e Friendly Society Hospital was also established in 1909, but neither of these “ rst facilities was adequate for the burgeoning city. After organizing the City Board of Health, Dr. Jackson was elected its President and tasked with building a new city hospital. Miami City Hospital opened its doors in June of 1918 with Dr. Jackson as its “ rst President. Community and organized medicine leaderDr. Jackson was a civic leader who was involved in numerous community activities. He was a founder and “ rst President of the Rotary Club of Miami in 1917, and a charter member of the First United Methodist Church of Miami. He and his wife had two daughters, Ethel and Helen. eir infant son died soon after birth. From the very beginning of his medical James M.

I called the number. Id been hankering to join that upper echelon who boasts a piano in their cramped living room. Some sleepy sounding fellow answered, which was odd, it being late afternoon. I asked him if I could come over and kick around under the hood. After a heavy sigh, then what I surmised to be a yawn, he “ nally managed, OhhhkayŽ. Doesnt sound in tune,Ž I said plunking down on the faded yellow keys. e sleepy sellers expression never changed. He just scratched himself, wiped his nose on his pajama sleeve, and shrugged. I didnt “ gure this fellow to be too bright, so I o ered him seventy “ ve bucks. Sleepy looked even more confused, if that was possible, maybe even a little dopey. Ill have to ask my mom when she gets home,Ž he muttered, She said she was hoping to get sixty out of it.Ž Suddenly the piano looked a lot nicer to me. I slapped three twenties on him and asked if hed help me load it up. You shouldve seen Sleepys jaw drop at the mention of work. He began mumbling something about what time his momma got home. I just shook my head and walked out to back my truck up to the door. I grunted and heaved and pulled most every muscle in my body scooting that four hundred pound chunk of junk out the door. It was enough to cause a fellow to have second thoughts, especially when I noticed how easily its “ nish peeled o on the door jam. Once outside we took a break. Of course I say we lightly. I was sweating like a New Orleans cab driver. Sleepy hadnt even bothered to set down his co ee cup. Mostly hed just stood there sighing repeatedly. In fact, I had to threaten him to “ nally get him to help me lift one end up onto the tailgate. As I was giving one last herniated push to slide it aboard I heard a metallic thud behind me. It was a deadbolt slapping into place. It seems Sleepy secretly slipped silently inside. (Say that three times real fast!) Since I hadnt thought to bring any tie downs, I purposed to drive it down the steep yard at a snails pace. Everything was going “ ne until my front wheels edged o the curb. en the whole truck tilted violently and there was a huge BLAM! My new upright was now o cially a down-wrong. I rushed out to survey the damage. It was substantial. e foot pedals had fallen o Splintered wood lay all over the truck bed. I climbed in and tried to wrestle it back upright, but I hadnt the strength. Up at the house I noticed the curtains suspiciously wiggling shut. It was then I experienced one of those rare moments of clarity, I should just dump this thing o right here on the curb and cut my losses.Ž I gave it serious thought, but sadly, dismissed the idea and drove it on home. I guess mere ” eeting moments of sanity were never enough to penetrate my thick skull back in those days. e story doesnt stop there, but I reckon I will for now. Because before I go Id like to ask you one question. Is your life making music? Or does everything just seem to be out of tune in your heart? Maybe youve got it all down-wrong? Youve got to be careful you know, sleepy satans craftier than he looks. Hed love nothing better than to pawn o a heavy load on you with no intention of helping you carry it. Listen, the best deal is getting upright with God. e only way to do that is to give your life to Jesus. (Some trust in chariots, and some in horses: but we will remember the name of the LORD our God. ey are brought down and fallen: but we are risen, and stand upright. Psalms 20:7-8 KJV) But anywayIll tell you the rest of the story later. In the meantime, why dont you just save yourself a lot of grief and let this be one of those skull penetrating moments of clarity for you? -Guy She eld 10-23-07 You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she eld@butanyway.org.

While still practicing with his father in Bronson, he attended the 1895 FMA annual meeting in Gainesville. As Miamis “ rst physician, he was a leader among the physicians who followed him there. A founder of the Dade County Medical Association in 1903, he became its second President in 1905 and served another term in 1923. Dr. Jackson was inaugurated as FMA President in 1905, and in his Presidential address at the 1906 FMA Annual Meeting in Gainesville, he called for physician unity. In 1911, he served as President of the Southern Medical Association. When Dr. Jackson died on April 2, 1924, of a lung infection, local businesses closed for a day to mourn his passing. e Miami City Commission renamed the Miami City Hospital to the James M. Jackson Memorial Hospital in his honor. In the decades since, Jackson Memorial Hospital has grown into the comprehensive health care system and teaching hospital that we know today. e original 1918 City of Miami hospital building named for Dr. Jackson is a ectionately known as the Alamo, where residents and medical students worked and slept. It is the centerpiece of the 76-acre University of Miami/ Jackson Health System campus and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Dr. Jackson is buried in the City of Miami cemetery. e May 1924 issue of e Journal of the Florida Medical Association dedicated two full pages to Dr. Jacksons memory.

Squeaky, a female manatee, is currently the youngest manatee in the Clubs adoption program at just nine months old. Squeaky was born to mother Amber in the spring run on June 13, 2011. It is believed that Squeaky is Ambers “ rst calf. After giving birth to Squeaky last summer, Amber returned to Blue Spring this past winter with her young calf in tow, much to the delight of the park visitors. Annie is an adult female who was rescued as an orphan in August 2005 from the Halifax River, near Port Orange, Florida. Annie was too young to be on her own, so after her rescue, she was taken to SeaWorld of Florida, and it was there that she befriended Rocket. Rocket is a male manatee, who was rescued as an orphaned calf in 2006 at Blue Spring State Park. He was aptly named RocketŽ because of his proclivity to rocketŽ around the tank during his rehabilitation. Rocket and Annie shared the same tank at SeaWorld. When they were released two years later at about four years of age, they remained together for well over a year, which is unusual outside of mother and calf pairs, as manatees are typically somewhat solitary animals. ose who adopt Squeaky, Annie, or Rocket will receive a full-color photo, biography, and adoption certi“ cate, as well as a membership handbook and subscription to e Manatee Zone, the Clubs newsletter featuring updates on the adopted manatees when they are sighted, and Paddle Tales, the bimonthly e-newsletter. Earlier this year, Save the Manatee Club launched live manatee webcams at Blue Spring State Park, making it possible to see Squeaky, Rocket, Annie, and all the other manatees in real time during the winter months. e webcams can be accessed at www.savethemanatee.org/ livecams.
