Both men were charged with numerous felony charges. Sergeant Jay Bolton with ChieÂ” and Police Department and a member of the Drug Task Force Unit had a conÂ“ dential source make a controlled phone call to Leroy Brown for the purpose of buying narcotics. e Brown and Blair agreed to sell an ounce of powder cocaine and a shotgun to the source for $1,350 dollars and meet at the entrance of Blue Springs Park to conduct the drug deal. Upon the arriving the suspects informed the conÂ“ dential source they did not have an ounce of cocaine or the shotgun, but they did have two eight balls, commonly known as a of an ounce of powder cocaine. After the suspects and conÂ“ dential source haggled about the price the conÂ“ dential source purchased the eight balls of cocaine for $300.00. After the drug deal the suspects left in their brown Buick sedan and a felony tra c stop was conducted. e suspects were overwhelmed with Drug Agents, Patrol deputies and a K-9 team and they surrendered without incident. During the arrest it was discovered that Blair had over 43 grams of marijuana in the picket of his pants which led to additional charges. An inventory of the vehicle yielded over 4 grams of crack cocaine and 12 grams of marijuana. Also on October 24, 20-year-old Rodney Charles Kirkland a/k/a ÂStumpÂŽ was arrested at 517 Main Street in Bronson. Kirkland had warrants from Dixie County for three counts of armed burglary and grand theft. e Levy County Sheri Âs O ce Drug Task Force received information that Kirkland was in Levy County selling narcotics. Members of the Drug Task Force located and arrested Kirkland at a residence in Bronson. Kirkland was inside the residence and after the house was surrounded he decided to peacefully surrender to authorities. Kirkland was arrested and transported to the Levy County Jail with no bond. e Levy County Sheri Âs O ce Criminal Investigation Detectives arrested Ronald Jack Davis, 23, Edward Lee Garcia, 21, Law Enforcement Busy Busting Drug Dealers and Burglars Leroy Brown Jr.John Edward Blair Rodney Charles Kirkland By Kathy HilliardEditorOn October 25 history was in the making and the demolishing. e home of the Suwannee River Fair had been vandalized to the point it had to give up all its memories to live in the minds and hearts of the thousands of fair exhibitors who had spent time their showing o their animals and crafts. In 1953 the state of Florida put up the building that housed the state road guard o ce up front and the fair facilities in the rest. Eventually, after the retirement of Roger Pittman in the front o ces, the Suwannee River Fair complex took over the entire building allowing generations of exhibitors to show o every year the animal they had cared for, fed, groomed, and learned to exhibit according to the rules of showmanship and good stewardship. Many memories and good skills culminated in that old building. According to Loran Brookins, who has been spearheading much of this project and who went to the Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie County commissioners for a share in the funding of the generous project of the Anderson family, February 1, 2013 is the target date for the new facility. Brookins also said whoever built the old place in 1953 meant for it to stay in place. It took more than a front-end loader to dig out the footers. Brookins said they were 3-foot deep concrete footers loaded with rebar and they had to get out the heavier heavy equipment to dislodge and dig out the footers. Â ey meant business when they put these down,ÂŽ said Brookins. Brookins also said he had heard lots of stories of people who were reminiscing of the days of old when they put time and hard work into exhibiting in that great old building. But according to Brookins, the good part of the new memories being made is they will be made in air conditioning. For that. it is worth it.

Photos courtesy of Linda Cooper, Levy County Journal.By Sharona Schwartz for TheBlaze.comEighty-year-old Bryna Franklin says sheÂs never voted anything but Democrat from the time she could vote. In fact, she was so committed to her party she once headed the Israel branch of Democrats Abroad and was a delegate to the 1992 Democratic National Convention. But the faith in her party has been shaken during the four years that Barack Obama has been president, and she has decided Â… for the Â“ rst time in her life Â… to vote Republican. Franklin, who now lives in Jerusalem, is the star of the latest Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) ad urging American Jews to vote for Mitt Romney for president. In the ad thatÂs running this week in four swing states, she criticizes President ObamaÂs Israel policy: Â e relationship changed almost immediately when President Obama became elected. He went to Egypt, he didnÂt come to Israel [Âƒ] Â ere was never daylight between Israel and the United States, between the United States and Israel. is is a new phenomenon that, it means thereÂs changing. at special relationship does not exist [Âƒ] ÂForget that you voted Democratic since you were knee-high to a grasshopper. I did too. My message to American Jews is to join me, Bryna Franklin, former chairperson of Democrats Abroad Israel and a delegate to the 1992 Democratic National Convention to switch sides and vote for Mitt Romney for president.ÂŽ e Missouri native also penned an op-ed in the Jerusalem Post published Monday night in which she writes: ÂIn all of my 80 years, I have never before voted for a Republican for president. But this time around, I am not only proudly voting for Mitt Romney, but feel compelled to encourage others to do the same. ÂI grew up in a Reform Jewish family in Missouri, and came of age politically as a proud Democrat due to the inspiration of my native-son president, Harry Truman. I have been involved in Democratic Party politics for many years in both America and Israel, including serving as vice chairperson of the Franklin County Democratic Central Committee in Missouri. It is precisely because of my belief in the longtime ideals of the Democratic Party that I feel the responsibility to speak out now. ÂWhy? First, because we ask in each presidential cycle, ÂAre we better o now than we were four years ago?ÂŽ is year, the answer is a resounding ÂNO!ÂŽ But even more troubling, in so many ways, President Barack Obama has betrayed the ideals of the great Democratic Party. He is a poor successor to TrumanÂs legacy.ÂŽ Franklin slams Obama for being in her words Âso Â“ scally irresponsibleÂŽ in running up trilliondollar deÂ“ cits every year; insu ciently tackling unemployment; for being Âa weak leader,ÂŽ not taking on Syrian President Hafez Assad and for abandoning former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. But her main issue with the president is her assessment that Obama has singled out Israel Former Head of Democrats Abroad in Israel and DNC Delegate Now Campaigning for Romney continued on page 2A With the backdrop of JerusalemÂs Old City behind her, Franklin urges Jewish American voters: ÂForget that you voted Democratic since you were knee-high to a grasshopper.ÂŽ Photo credit: TheBlaze.com from Screen shot from new Republican Jewish Coalition ad FALL BACKDonÂt forget to set your clocks BACK 1 hour at bedtime Saturday.continued on page 2A

According to investigators, they discovered evidence that allegedly linked Scarborough to overprescribing of medications to patients as well as allowing unlicensed and untrained sta members to practice medicine. ese employees were then being directed to inÂ” ate medical billing to Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers for a level of service that the patient did not receive.

From his creation of ÂdaylightÂŽ between our countries to constant public criticism of Israeli policy Â… does Obama do this to any other country? Â… Obama has allowed severe deterioration of our special relationship just as Israel and the world face extreme danger. ÂPresident ObamaÂs open hostility to IsraelÂs prime minister, and his insulting true feelings caught on an open microphone, indicate antipathy towards the citizens of Israel. ObamaÂs administration does not even maintain symbolic gestures: at the recent opening of the United Nations Assembly, the United States sat and listened to the address by the president of Iran, yet Ambassador Rice was absent during the entire presentation by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. is wasnÂt lost on the leaders of IsraelÂs enemies. ÂComing from Missouri, I take immense pride that President Truman had the courage, conviction and moral compass to recognize the nascent state of Israel. By comparison, President Obama has steered our relationship to an abysmal low.ÂŽ As a result of her disappointment in Obama, Franklin says she sees Âno choice but to switch sidesÂŽ and vote for Mitt Romney for president Âwho better embodies our Democratic ideals.ÂŽ e Republican Jewish Coalition says the television ad featuring Bryna Frankin is running in Florida, Nevada, Ohio, and Pennsylvania through Election Day and is part of the groupÂs ÂMy Buyers RemorseÂŽ initiative which invites those who voted for Obama in 2008 to submit videos about their disappointment in the president.
The Levy County Journal 3ANovember 1, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 When you run a successful hot dog vending business, you truly relish your work. And, that is certainly the case for nine APD (Agency for Persons with Disabilities) customers who collectively run a hot dog cart located just outside of Goodwill industries on Silver Springs Boulevard in Ocala. Fred Allen, Charlotte Coach, Anthony Dayton, Becky French, Aisha Issa, Michael Jacobie, Josh Lessor, Kerr Sargood, and Amy ompson run the business. Learning how to operate their own business, literally from scratch, has changed their lives and the lives of everyone around them. Amy ompson, one of the nine workers, deeply enjoys her new entrepreneurial world and her sense of pride is unmistakable. ÂI have been able to get better at my customer service skills. I have to take orders and run the register. It is deÂ“ nitely more responsibility for me, but I am learning more skills,ÂŽ says ompson. e hot dog stand business started in mid-May but, before it could even begin, each owner had to become a certiÂ“ ed food handler. at means more than just cooking hot dogs. ey each had to be able to keep precise temperature logs, utilize proper sanitation techniques, purchase and maintain inventory, and display outstanding customer service skills. e hot dog stand is open Monday through Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. e start-up entrepreneurs have steady sales in the range of $1,200 a month. Initially, they needed support and help from their adult day training skills trainer, however, after four months of operation they are able to run the business almost entirely own their own. e hard work has paid o Not only have they learned basic business skills, but they also track their progress on a specially designed spreadsheet. e program displays their bottom line on a big, easy to read, overhead screen. After carefully entering all the needed information, the program then calculates proÂ“ ts and losses so each worker can see what works and what doesnÂt. If they purchase too much advance inventory, their proÂ“ ts fall. If they have a particularly good sales day, their reward is immediately seen. And, business is booming. e concept started when Derek Arnold, the Supervisor for Goodwill Adult Day Training Program, did research and discovered that Marion County had numerous food-based businesses. Why go elsewhere? Arnold thought a hot dog cart would be a perfect match for hungry, lunch time shoppers. After months of planning, fundraising, and food handling training, the entrepreneurs are succeeding. ÂItÂs amazing,ÂŽ says Arnold, ÂAt Â“ rst they needed a lot of help. Now it has taken o .ÂŽ He says he actually does very little supervision now. Â ey are involved in every facet. ey can do it, and they are getting paid well,ÂŽ says Arnold. Each entrepreneur has had a taste of success and they love it. Sales are soaring but more importantly, so is everyoneÂs sense of self esteem. e group has also become an inspiration to peers, customers, family, and friends. People attending the Goodwill Adult Day Training program have seen for themselves how business dreams can come true and many want to follow in their footsteps. Change is in the air. Encouraged by their friendÂs success, others are hoping for the same chance and are exploring opportunities to start a business in the future.

The Levy County Journal4ANovember 1, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Â‘Cooling OutÂ’ the Voters Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateConÂ“ dence men know that their victim -Âthe markÂŽ as he has been called -is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big di erence whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the conÂ“ dence man is long gone. So part of the conÂ“ dence racket is creating a period of uncertainty, during which the victim is not yet sure of what is happening. is delaying process has been called Âcooling out the mark.ÂŽ e same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton Â“ rst surfaced, he Â” atly denied them all. en, as the months passed, the truth came out -but slowly, bit by bit. One of ClintonÂs own White House aides later called it Âtelling the truth slowly.ÂŽ By the time the whole truth came out, it was called Âold news,ÂŽ and the clever phrase now was that we should Âmove on.ÂŽ It was a successful Âcooling outÂŽ of the public, keeping them in uncertainty so long that, by the time the whole truth came out, there was no longer the same outrage as if the truth had suddenly come out all at once. Without the support of an outraged public, the impeachment of President Clinton Â“ zzled out in the Senate. We are currently seeing another Âcooling outÂŽ process, growing out of the terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on September 11th this year. e belated release of State Department e-mails shows that the Obama administration knew, while the attack on the American consulate was still underway, that it was a coordinated, armed terrorist attack. ey were getting reports from those inside the consulate who were under attack, as well as surveillance pictures from a camera on an American drone overhead.About an hour before the attack, the scene outside was calm enough for the American ambassador to accompany a Turkish o cial to the gates of the consulate to say goodbye. is could hardly have happened if there were protesting mobs there. Why then did both President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice keep repeating the story that this was a spontaneous protest riot against an anti-Islamic video in America? e White House knew the facts -but they knew that the voting public did not. And it mattered hugely whether the facts became known to the public before or after the election. What the White House needed was a process of Âcooling outÂŽ the voters, keeping them distracted or in uncertainty as long as possible. Not only did the Obama administration keep repeating the false story about an antiIslamic video being the cause of a riot that turned violent, the man who produced that video was tracked down and arrested, creating a media distraction. All this kept the video story front and center, with the actions and inactions of the Obama administration kept in the background. e White House had to know that it was only a matter of time before the truth would come out. But time was what mattered, with an election close at hand. e longer they could stretch out the period of distraction and uncertainty -Âcooling outÂŽ the voters -the better. Once the conÂ“ dence man in the White House was reelected, it would be politically irrelevant what facts came out. As the Obama administrationÂs video story began to slowly unravel, their earlier misstatements were blamed on Âthe fog of warÂŽ that initially obscures many events. But there was no such Âfog of warÂŽ in this case. e Obama administration knew what was happening while it was happening. ey didnÂt know all the details -and we may never know all the details -but they knew enough to know that this was no protest demonstration that got out of hand. From the time it took o ce, the Obama administration has sought to suppress the very concept of a Âwar on terrorÂŽ or the terroristsÂ war on us. e painful farce of calling the Fort Hood murders Âworkplace violence,ÂŽ instead of a terrorist attack in our midst, shows how far the Obama administration would go to downplay the dangers of Islamic extremist terrorism. e killing of Osama bin Laden fed the pretense that the terrorism threat had been beaten. But the terroristsÂ attack in Libya exposed that fraud -and required another fraud to try to Âcool outÂŽ the voters until after election day. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2012 CREATORS.COM OPINION By Michelle Malkin Creators Syndicate ree days after the bloody 9/11 siege on our consulate in Benghazi, the Taliban waged an intricately coordinated, brutal attack on Camp Bastion in Afghanistan. e murderous jihadists released video exactly one month ago this week showing o their training exercises in preparation for the assault. Where are the questions? WhereÂs the accountability? WhereÂs the Obama administration? WhereÂs the press? WhereÂs the outrage? Two heroic U.S. Marines were killed in the battle. eir names -Lt. Col. Christopher Raible and Sgt. Bradley Atwell -have not been uttered publicly by the commander in chief. eir arrival back in the U.S., in Â” agdraped co ns, was not broadcast on network TV. But their brothers-in-arms did not and will not forget. And neither must we. On September 20, John Gresham of the Defense Media Network wrote a scathing detailed breakdown of this little-noticed terrorist attack on our troops. He called it Âarguably the worst day in USMC aviation history since the Tet O ensive of 1968.ÂŽ Eight irreplaceable aircraft were destroyed or put out of action by Taliban warriors dressed in U.S. combat fatigues -amounting to Âapproximately 7 percent of the total Â” ying USMC Harrier Â” eet,ÂŽ Gresham reported. His summary is bone chilling: ÂA Harrier squadron commander is dead, along with another Marine. Another nine personnel have been wounded, and the nearby Marines at Camp Freedom are now without e ective Â“ xed-wing air support. e USMCÂs response to this disaster will be a telling report card on its leadership and organizational agility.ÂŽ On September 21, the left-leaning magazine e Atlantic published an article on the Camp Bastion attack titled Â e U.S. Su ered Its Worst Airpower Loss Since Vietnam Last Week and No One Really Noticed.ÂŽ A few right-leaning blogs raised troubling questions about preparedness and security. ÂHow did this band of radicals even manage to approach a highly advanced multinational military base without being detected, much less force their way inside en masse?ÂŽ asked Kim Zigfeld of the American inker. ÂHow were they able to attack so quickly and e ciently that, even though nearly every one of them was killed in the e ort, they were able to harm the mighty leathernecks more than they had been in half a century?ÂŽ National ReviewÂs Jonathan Foreman wondered whether Pakistan was behind the attack. ÂIt seems likely that the special forces of a professional army planned the raid, and trained, advised and led the raiders -that is if they did not actually take part in it. ose special forces would, of course, be those of Pakistan,ÂŽ Foreman posited. Â is may sound shocking, but it would hardly be the Â“ rst time that Pakistani special forces have operated in Afghanistan on behalf of IslamabadÂs allies and proxies.ÂŽ President Obama has referred callously to the murders of our civilian diplomatic sta in Benghazi as Âbumps in the road.ÂŽ Even more maddening, though, is the radio silence from the White House about what happened that day at Camp Bastion -and what, if anything, ObamaÂs Pentagon did between the last major attack on Bastion in March and the bloody siege in September. Somehow, a band of 15 insurgents managed to penetrate the wire with assault riÂ” es, rocket-propelled grenades and other weapons on 9/14. eir destruction was of historic proportions. e attack came six months after U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta was the target of a failed suicide attack attempt at Bastion. e (UK) Sun reported at the time that an Afghani was believed to have made the deliberate attempt on Panetta after Âhe broke through defenses and drove a vehicle towards his aircraft. He then went past the perimeter surrounded by armed security and large concrete block guards. Disaster was only averted when the truck caught Â“ re and crashed into a ditch on the runway close to where Mr. PanettaÂs jet had landed or was set to land.ÂŽ Team Obama mocks GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney with snarky lines about bayonets and binders. e thinskinned commander in chief exploits Seal Team Six to burnish his ÂleadershipÂŽ cred. And the presidentÂs campaign surrogates have ceaselessly attacked their critics as ÂunpatrioticÂŽ for questioning this administrationÂs commitment to national security. But silence is complicity. e questions must be asked: Did politically correct rules of engagement hamper our troopsÂ defenses? Who knew what and when? Who was behind the attackers? And what is being done to ensure our front-line defenders of freedom are able to defend themselves?

Have a voice through the Levy County Journal Letter from the EditorWith a President like Obama, Who Needs al-Qaida By Kathy HilliardEditorLike millions of other Americans I watched with horror as violent pictures were Â” ashed across the screen accompanied by a narrative of a terroristic assassination plot against the United States Embassy in Bengazi, Libya. And like millions of mothers across this land I was ever so grateful that none of my three sons were there. And the usual patriotic reasonings ran through my head of how those men had given their lives so the ideal of freedom could be brought to foreign shores, even at the cost of the blood of those soldiers, even though my heart wept for the families and loved ones of the slain Americans there. But as the days went on I was horriÂ“ ed again and again as the story unfolded of the actions on the part of those in the Obama administration. e Â“ rst few tales told us how bad a certain online video slamming Islam was and that it sparked the attack (not an act of terror, of course, a/k/a Ft. Hood workplace violence). e embassy in Cairo made a statement apologizing for the videoÂs Âattack on IslamÂŽ followed by the same rendition by the Obama administrative spokespersons including President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. If that is how it is done then I want an apology for all the Christians martyred there and here and all the salacious remarks by Occupy groups, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Van Jones, and others against Christians and their beliefs. And from the President for not observing the National Day of Prayer but observing Muslim holy days. Of course, that will not happen and Christians have always just moved on knowing that no matter what type of words are used against our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, He is more than enough and really does not need for us to save Him from the vileness of the words of others. Sure says something about how small certain other gods must be if their god has to use human beings to be safe. Remember when we also saw pictures across the screen of the Obama huddle as they watched Osama bin Laden get his due? ey could not wait to crow about it then. And donÂt you know the very same scene happened during the attack on Bengazi. I am dismayed that the blame game Obama plays at every one of his mistake-plays was used on our military and intelligence community. I was enraged to hear our planes could have been there in 2 hours and were not sent. I was proud that Tyrone Woods knew in his heart that saving people was far more important than a Âstand downÂŽ order from political hacks. I was crying as I heard TyroneÂs father speak out on being stonewalled when he requested information and was perfunctorily dismissed as they spewed out more spin while he had no more son. Tyrone Woods followed the moral directive in his heart that you donÂt leave a brother in arms or anyone at the scene of a murderous crew of inÂ“ dels just because a pencil-pushing deskocrat thinks it does not Â“ t into the political landscape planned out to win an election. Obama also sucked in Ambassador Rice to do his dirty work on the Sunday junket of shows lying to the American public. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta stated they did not have enough Âreal time informationÂŽ about what was happening on the ground. Tyrone Woods was calling in the real time information as he laid on the rooftop after going back in with Glen Doherty as part of a Global Response Sta (GRS) whose very job it is to provide security to CIA o cers and countersurveillance and surveillance protection. What more Âreal time informationÂŽ do you want Panetta? How about the drone information as they Â” ew over? Not good enough, Mr. Obama? How about the President of Libya stating the next day that this was a terrorist attack? Too much common sense for this crowd in Washington.

An Antivirus is a computer program speciÂ“ cally designed to identify, and eliminate other malicious software programs that were created to get into your computerÂs operating system and cause you problems. is malicious software can take many forms, such as viruses, spyware, Trojans, and worms, to name a few. Each one causes di erent types and degrees of damage, ranging from being just irritating because of all the pop ups and slow down that you get, to destructive telling your processor to overheat, e ectively killing your computer. Some malicious software can even hack (break)into your computer Â“ les to steal your personal data, like your date of birth, credit card numbers, banking information e ectively stealing your identity. So, having an active Antivirus installed on your computer is like having a home security system guarding your home. Even if you spend little time surÂ“ ng the NET, itÂs important to have protection on your computer that can stop this malicious software from breaking in. ere are di erent levels of Antivirus Programs that o er a range of additional features. Most of them typically work with two di erent techniques to accomplish this. Â€ Identifying malicious software that have been reported and added to a list of known threatening software that it receives in the form of updates. Â€ Identifying suspicious activities or behaviors within your computer system which could indicate a possible infection.An Antivirus performs a number of tasks to keep your computer safe and secure. Many antivirus programs are designed to run in the background, scanning both new and old Â“ les, always on the search for possible threats, taking a lot of the worry out of your computing experience. is makes you feel more secure knowing that even though hackers are still coming up with new devious ways to infect your computer, your antivirus is also receiving the updates on how to prevent or get rid of them. e one thing that you have to Â“ gure out at this point is which type of Antivirus would work best for your computer. Before you start searching for performance reports on popular Antiviruses out there, you should take a moment to look at what kinds of activities you do on the internet and how long you tend to spend online. You may Â“ nd out that most of the time you are using your computer you are usually connected to the internet either watching streaming videos, chatting with friends on social networking sites, or even paying bills. If this is the case you may need more than the free Antivirus that is generally a single layer of basic protection. e more advanced Antivirus Programs usually o er more features such as additional tools like Parental Controls or Identity eft Protection. However, watch out for overkill; more is not necessarily better. A thorough Antivirus may be su cient, when a global version that includes internet security, spam Â“ lter, additional Â“ rewall, plus more, may severely slow your system down. If you have additional questions, or need more information, please feel free to give us or your trusted local computer shop for assistance.Why Do I Need An Antivirus? gator works computing 352-493-1006Ask About Our GWC Pro Care Total Technology Solutions! www.gatorworks.com4 WEST PARK AVENUE, CHIEFLAND, FL 32626* Intercity and High Speed Rail Grants -$2.5 billion annual savings.

May 21 2012 Councilman Weeks than made a motion to approve the minutes from May 21, 2012. Motion was seconded again by Councilman Aaron Edmondson and approved unanimously. NEW BUSINESS: North Florida Broadband Authority Mr. Pat OÂNeal and Mr. Donny Lort addressed and updated the Council on the status of North Florida Broadband Authority. Mr. OÂNeal spoke about the Council considering an in kind lease agreement with the NFBA on the townÂs water tower. He also suggested that maybe the Town consider becoming its own internet service provider. Councilman Weeks asked if there would be any support from NFBA if we did consider being our own provider. He said there would be some level of support. Donnie Lort touched on how the North Florida Broadband Authority has changed over the past year in regards to engineers, accountants and with employees being hired. He also went onto say that they are already in the pre planning stages for expansion and the initial network has not even come on line yet the demand is that high. Mayor Roberts said before the Council move on this agreement she would like to have more discussion. Councilman Kennedy agreed wanting to understand where technology is today and what services might be available in the future. Mr. Lort went on to say that Mainstream is a last mile provider under the NFBA now. ere was further discussion regarding how close the Bronson area is to the Â“ ber POP which is located in ChieÂ” and which is very good for providing additional services to the Town in the future. Present Purvis Gray & Company Audit engagement letter for approval. Councilman Kennedy moved to accept engagement letter from Purvis Gray for the next 3 years 2012, 2013 and 2014. Vice Mayor Schuler seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously. Mrs. Shirley Patterson Taylor asking for Special Exception for the Apostolic Temple Church. Councilman Weeks made a motion to approve the Special Exception for 3 years. Councilman Edmondson seconded his motion. Motion passed unanimously. OLD BUSINESS Mr. David Fox to give update on CDBG housing program. David wanted to discuss the status of the three homes being constructed by Central States Construction. Mr. Gibb Patterson, Greg & Benita MartinÂs and Wendy & Lamar BrownÂs. David discussed the deadlines of these three projects which were all running behind. Councilman Weeks asked what steps can the Council take to get rid of this contractor because he is not fulÂ“ lling his obligations under the contract. David said that he has been in discussion with the Department of Economic Opportunity several times over the course of the last couple of weeks. He said that Mrs. Eve Gri s who was present with Central States Construction and Mr. Edwin Gri s was no longer in the county he was in New Zealand. David said that DEO stated that the homeowners would have to be willing, he went on to say that Central States Construction doesnÂt have su cient funding to complete the project, and even with the last draw being made they would be still short. Eve Gri s came to speak on her behalf not on Central States Construction. She said she felt bad about how Edwin Gri s president and license holder of Central States Construction has left the people and the Town. After discussion regarding Central States Construction abandonment of these three homes David and the Council discussed how to proceed with the Â“ nishing of the projects. Attorney Warm read the part of the contract that was pertinent to this situation. ÂOnce the contractor has commenced the work if the contractor should there after fail to actively and diligently prosecute the same for a period of 10 consecutive calendar days without cause as to Â“ nd herein or permission from the owner and CDBG administrator the work shall be considered abandoned and the contractor shall be consider in breach of disagreement thereafter the owner may proceed to have the work completed by a third party contractor after written approval to proceed is obtained from the CDBG administrator if the owner should fail to proceed with the completion of the work under such circumstances the Town has sole option and discretion may proceed to have the work completed.ÂŽ Attorney Warm stated that the Â“ rst option is with the owner and if the owner expresses an unwillingness or inability to complete the work then it falls to the Town if they choose to pursue it. David Fox stated that if the owners are willing it is in the best interest of the Town to bid out the completion. David stated that he will get signed a davits and then walk the houses and bid them out as quickly as possible. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to accept Mr. David FoxÂs proposal to draw up all paper work necessary to legally let the homeowners terminate the existing contractor and for abandonment and anticipatory breach of contract thus allowing the Town of Bronson to take responsibility in the matter and bid the projects out for the remainder of the work involved in the properties. Councilman Weeks seconded the motion. Mayor Roberts called for a vote, and motion passed unanimously. Clerk Brettel wanted David to clarify if the A/C Contractor had been paid. David said that he spoke with him and he conÂ“ rmed he had been compensated. David said he spoke to most of the subs and suppliers including the cabinet company and they have been paid. David Fox then directed the Council to the bid tab sheet on the next group of houses. Â€ Burley WilmerÂs residence low bidder was Orenchak Construction total bid including alternate 1,2,3 is $28,640.00. David is recommending acceptance of this bid. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler made a motion to accept the bid from Orenchak Construction for Burley WilmerÂs house. Councilman Kennedy seconded the motion. Motion unanimously approved. Â€ Ethel BrinsonÂs residence low bidder was Steve Smith Construction for a total bid of $54,930.00. David is recommending acceptance. He pointed out that Mrs. Brinson recently had a granddaughter move in with her, but she has no income and it does not change the project in any way. He also noted the previous stated conÂ” ict regarding Mayor Roberts. Councilman Weeks made a motion to accept Steve Smith Construction for Ms. Ethel BrinsonÂs home. Councilman Edmondson seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously. Â€ Ms. Mary Greenlee residence David stated that Mayor Beatrice Robelts has a conÂ” ict. Mrs. RobertsÂs uncle was married to Ms. Greenlee about 50 years ago. David said that there has been a conÂ” ict waiver request submitted and this will be contingent on getting that approval back from DEO. Low bidder was Steve Smith Construction for a total bid of $56,530.00. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to accept, Councilman Weeks seconded. Motion passed unanimously. David had one more item to present. He stated that the completion date for the grant is October. Due to the recent events he does not see that happening. He is requesting an approval to submit a six (6) month extension request. He spoke with our grant administrator at DEO Mrs. Tammy Anderson during the TownÂs monitoring visit and told her of the situation and she recommended submitting the request. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow the submittal of the six (6) month extension. Vice Mayor Schuler seconded the motion. Motion passed unanimously. Clerk Brettel submitted the land appraisals as directed on the following parcels for consideration to purchase. She stated that each appraisal cost $250.00 and was done by Mr. Dwayne Drummond. #03511-000-00 owner Virginia B. Allen 11.33 Acres appraised at $4,696 acre $53,206. #03517-000-00 owner William C. Cobb 5.0 Acres appraised at $3,800 acre $19,000. Councilman Weeks commented on the Cobb land saying that he did not think we needed the additional part on the other side of Main Street. Clerk Brettel asked if that was directly behind Mr. TonyÂs gas station which he said it was. Clerk Brettel stated that the road might divide it but she didnÂt think it was divided in the property appraiserÂs records. Councilman Kennedy said he walked the area, and the ditch runs right up on the property line for the larger parcel. Both Councilman Kennedy and Weeks expressed how this parcel could improve the park upon future development. Mayor Roberts asked if anyone has thought about how we were going to pay for it. Councilman Kennedy asked Ms. Barr if she had put together any numbers as far as Â“ nancing and interest rates as per discussed. She said she was waiting on the appraisals. She said she spoke with Mr. Doug McKoy who is representing the Cobb property who would follow suit on whatever Mrs. Barr came up with. She said that they would need at least 30% down. Clerk Brettel said that there is money available in the budget, but it is her concern with all the other projects going on like the Â“ re department, the storm water management plan and the sewer project that we donÂt over extend ourselves. She went on to say that if something major breaks and needs repair on the water and sewer side the general fund is where the funding would have to come from because of lack of reserve in the proprietary fund. Clerk Brettel suggested that she bring a complete budget report to the next meeting showing exactly where we stand and an updated project list. Councilman Weeks said that he and Jimmy will get together and work on the garbage analysis and present it at the next meeting. Sewer & Capacity Charges. Clerk Brettel stated that the drain Â“ eld issue down at A & A Restaurant was repaired. All we had to do is put a cap on. Clerk Brettel stated that Councilman Weeks had asked her to put together some Â“ gures. She went on to say that the Â“ nal draft from Florida Rural Water was based on a meter size which she conÂ“ rmed with Mr. Bill Secoy. She said that on several occasions Councilman WeekÂs biggest concern is that the ERU in Bronson be set to attract businesses and would be lower than that in ChieÂ” and and Williston. She presented a comparison chart to the Council showing how di erent types of businesses would calculate out using the current Â“ gures from both cities respectfully. After further discussion Councilman Weeks still wanted to wait on the rate analysis, Clerk Brettel said that both the Town engineer and Mr. Bill Secoy said that the capacity fees are used to o set the rates, if you donÂt have those in place then the rates would include the cost for capacity and plant expansion which then would a ect all homeowners. After further discussion the Council instructed the Clerk and Councilman Weeks to visit various towns around the area and discuss their fee structure. PUBLIC PARTICIPATION: No public participation BRONSON YOUTH LEAGUE: Mr. Joe Markham President of the BYL addressed the Council regarding the status of the youth league. He apologized for not being present at the recent meetings where the Youth League was discussed. Councilman Weeks addressed the article in the Levy County Journal and how he was misquoted. Joe said that the resignation of both Kelli and Jimmy left a huge hole in the organization. He went on to say that they viewed a situation di erently and that was where it all started. Councilman Weeks said the BYL has a notorious record for going strong for a year or two then there is always a rebellion. Berton said that the intern would handle more of the administration of the department. Councilman Kennedy said he made the motion to create the Parks & Recreation Department not take over the Bronson Youth League. Mike Hanna was questioning and wanting clariÂ“ cation on the statement that was made by Councilman Weeks about the Bronson Youth League going away because they would not have Â“ elds to play on. Councilman Weeks conÂ“ rmed he made that statement because the fact of the matter is the Town owns the property the BYL is an independent corporation that pays nothing to the town but utilizes services that the Town pays for. Councilman Weeks just wants to bring it under the Town to have a better structured department. Councilman Kennedy said the Council is trying to look at the whole picture. A gentleman from the audience asked why the Town doesnÂt appoint a Council member to be over the Bronson Youth League. Mayor Roberts said she is over the park and promises to spend more time over the park. Joe Markham asked Mayor Roberts if she would come to the next BYL meeting to explain the proposal. She said she would. Joe went on to say that he went by the bank and said there currently is a balance of $6,780.00. He said when Jimmy, Kelli, Sherrie and him all started 3 years ago the account was in the negative. Joe doesnÂt want to see all the good work go down the drain. He wanted to address how the deposits are being handled that was made during the last meeting. e council said that was not even discussed. Kelli asked Joe if there were any deposits made to the bank since baseball started. Joe said that monies were kept in a lock box to pay for expenses. Joe said most of the time him hooking up with Sherrie was di cult. Kelli responded to how Joe was handling the Â“ nances, and stated that the BYL is a non-proÂ“ t corporation and should be run as such. She stressed to him the perception he is giving when he is operating on a cash basis. She felt that between Joe, Mike and Sherrie since those seem to be the people in charge right now they need to come together to operate the Bronson Youth League appropriately. Councilman Weeks said money can be budgeted and funds are accountable. Joe said that the TownÂs proposal is a better thing he is all for it, Councilman Weeks said we will never know if we donÂt try something di erent. Joe then wanted to thank the Council and sta on how well the Town looked with the American FlagÂs lining the street, and he was very proud of the Town and to be a part of it. Councilman Weeks again said to Joe that this is nothing personal. Mayor Robelts then asked Clerk Brettel to read the letter Ms. Sherrie Schuler wrote to address some of the BYL issues. Letter attached to the o cial minutes. PUBLIC UTILITIES: Jimmy updated the Council on the status of the water tank.

Councilman Kennedy asked for any further discussion regarding Bronson Fire and Levy County. Councilman Weeks thought it might be wise to sit back and watch for a year or so. He also brought up the point that if Chief Knowles was going to be allowed to use the Forestry Camp for emergency use then our thoughts on the need for a Â“ re station and training facility might change. He was concerned about the $40 Â“ re assessment fee on the citizens of Bronson. Both the Mayor and Vice Mayor said they had the same concerns. Councilman Kennedy expressed the need for further discussion on the development of the property either which way. He feels that maybe we should look at how the Fire Department gets funded. Councilman Weeks then asked if Chief Knowles would explain his plans regarding the Levy County Forestry Camp. Chief Knowles said that they are in discussions with the State of Florida for the County to acquire the Levy County Forestry Camp property. His intention would be to utilize the property for the Levy County Public Safety Training Facility and headquarters for Public Safety Operations.

Councilman Kennedy felt it would be good addition to our park for future development. Mayor Roberts just reminded them of all the area in the park that still is not developed. Vice Mayor Schuler agreed with Councilman Kennedy but didnÂt feel now is a good time, because we had some large projects starting and didnÂt want to fall short with money. Councilman Weeks and Councilman Edmondson both said they understood both sides Councilman Edmondson went on to say we should wait to get these other projects completed Â“ rst. After some further discussion regarding the ditch location, Councilman Weeks made a motion to purchase the property because it adds additional land to the park and covers the ditch. He said if you want to add the other 2.5 acres of property across the road he didnÂt have a problem with that. Councilman Kennedy seconded the motion. Motion did not pass, vote was 2-2 with Nay votes from both Vice Mayor Schuler and Councilman Edmondson so Mayor Beatrice Roberts was the deciding vote, and she voted Nay because she wanted to make sure we had money to pay for the sewer project.

SEWER COMMITTEE: Nothing to report Vice Mayor Schuler asked if the Bronson Access Center would be considered to run the Youth League. After some discussion Natalie omas who is a board member with the Bronson Access Center said that they would be more interested in the development programs within the community center once that gets built. Clerk Brettel expressed that she has always felt that the Bronson Access Center was a key component in the broader plan because they are a separate 501 (3) C and grant opportunities would be easier to apply for with a separate organization. ATTORNEY REPORT: Nothing to report FIRE DEPARTMENT: Chief DiMaggio said he needed to quote out a new A/C unit for the station. Volunteer Dennis Russell said that they arc $369.00 at Wal-Mart. Councilman Jason Kennedy made a motion to allow Chief DiMaggio to purchase an air conditioner for the Fire Department o ce. Motion was seconded by Councilman Weeks. Motion passed unanimously.

She said her goal was to get it approved by September 30, 2012. Mayor Roberts asked for a month, and said to list it on the agenda for discussion at each meeting. Chief DiMaggio asked how the new policy would a ect the Â“ re department personnel. She thought it should direct any Â“ re personnel back to the Fire Departments SOGs. Everyone was in agreement. She then asked to attend the FLC Budgeting Seminar on July 12, 2012 in Lake Butler. She also said if allowed she would stay there all day because the Suwannee River League of Cities dinner is there that night. Council was in agreement to allow Kelli to attend. Several members of the Council would attend the SRLC dinner. Kelli then brought to their attention a brochure she brought home from FACC regarding the twelve amendments that will be on the ballot this year which she gave them for their information. Clerk Brettel then asked for direction regarding a couple that recently purchased a building lot o of Standridge and they are questioning sewer availability. Jimmy said there is not a stub out there, but you can get to the main line and tap into it. Mr. Bob Ni enegger said it would not be a problem. Councilman Weeks said we should allow them to hook up, he said the problem lies because the small sewer project was done with the intention of funding it through the School Inter-local but that did not happen. Councilman Edmondson said that these projects are two separate deals. is area on Standridge was funded with grant monies and there was no charge to hook up the residence. Clerk Brettel reminded them of needing to hold capacity for those lots that had not been built out. Mayor Roberts confmned. Mayor Roberts asked Attorney Warm for an opinion on the matter. Attorney Warm explained the situation again for clarity. He said no, you canÂt charge the fees that have not been legislated. Clerk Brettel then asked about a timing clariÂ“ cation issue. Vice Mayor Schuler corrected everyone about what the original grant actually paid for which was the north side of Standridge. He went on to say that is why the north side is stubbed out and the south side is not. Everyone was in agreement with that. Clerk Brettel said that she spoke out of turn and apologized because it is the south side that is Â“ gured in the current USDA project. Mayor Roberts asked if there were properties that have sewer available and not hooked up in that area. Deputy Clerk Susie Robinson said that Mr. Jackie Strickland is one that was not hooked up. Councilman Weeks asked Clerk Brettel to prepare a list of everyone that has sewer available that is not hooked up. COUNCIL REPORT: Councilman Aaron Edmondson then spoke about the sewer situation. He went on to say that he is tired of talking and fussing about this issue and he is not making a motion now but plans to next meeting. His suggestion is to accept Mr. Bill SecoyÂs recommendation of approximately $3,500 and o er a 20% discount with a 90 same as cash terms. But if you donÂt hook up at the time then it is $3,500 with a 50% deposit and balance in 6 months. He doesnÂt think that little bit of money should be spread out over multiple years. He wants the Council to come to a conclusion on this issue. Councilman Weeks wanted to think about it. After some further discussion on the tables that Mr. Secoy submitted to the town Councilman Kennedy asked if Kelli and Berlon had a chance to visit other municipalities which they had not but plan on getting appointments made. Councilman Berlon Weeks was concerned about our tractor not having a top. He made a motion to purchase a top. Motion was seconded by Councilman Edmondson. Motion passed. Councilman Weeks asked about the inventory Mr. Kite wanted done. Clerk Brettel said that is for property and no it hasnÂt been started but the water/sewer inventory is done every year. Vice Mayor Franklin Schuler said that he is going to continue to work on the bids for the park. Councilman Weeks asked if he had seen the new County building that the County employees built. Councilman Weeks said the employees are volunteering their services for free. Clerk Brettel questioned that and would like to get that in writing. Councilman Jason Kennedy asked for permission to attend the permitting school July 17 in Marco Island regarding development and zoning. Motion was made to allow by Councilman Edmondson with a second from Vice Mayor Schuler. Motion passed unanimously.

Council asked Deputy Clerk Susie Robinson to get prices and present at next meeting. Clerk Kelli Brettel asked permission to apply for scholarship monies for both Mayor Roberts and Councilman WeeksÂ attendance to the Florida League of Cities Annual Conference. Council allowed. Mayor Beatrice Mongo said that everything she wanted to talk about was pretty much already covered. She did say that the Bronson Youth League did invite her to their World Series Event. She then reminded the Council to make sure they Â“ ll out and return their required annual Â“ nancial form to the Supervisor of Elections. She reiterated there are costly personal Â“ nes accessed if not submitted timely.

Mr. David Fox updated the Council on the Community Development Block Grant. He began his update with the status of the Patterson, Brown and Martin homes. He said that he had 6 contractors that walked the homes, and 3 that bid. Of the 3 bids he said that Gary Southard Construction was low bidder on all three. David was pleased with bids saying that the Contractors were very reasonable considering the circumstances. David then updated the Council saying that Mr. Gibb PattersonÂs home will exceed the $67,000.00 maximum amount allowed in the HAP Plan for rehabilitation to the house and will cost $71,040. David said that the Patterson home will run an additional $15,990.00 but there is really nothing we can do because the home has to be completed but wanted this overage to be reÂ” ected in the minutes. He then explained the other two were within the allowed amount for rehabilitation. e MartinÂs home will be an additional $12,010, and the Brown residence will be an additional $10,713. David explained that these additional costs will be paid to Â“ nish the homes above the original contract award. Councilman Weeks asked if in the future the low bidder could be thrown out. David said that you canÂt throw out a low bidder unless you have a justiÂ“ ed reason. He said now you donÂt have to consider Central States Construction. Attorney Warm asked why the program doesnÂt require a bond. David said the cost. David said that this is the Â“ rst time in 20 years that a contractor abandoned the project. Vice Mayor Schuler asked about recovering any of the cost from Central States Construction. David said it is up to the Council but they should consider the legal cost involved. Attorney Warm said there was deÂ“ nite liability. David said he has been moving forward with reporting to the excluded parties list for government jobs, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation to get his license at least cited if not revoked.

Mayor Roberts then called upon Mr. Pat OÂNeal and Mr. Donnie Lort to discuss North Florida Broadband in kind lease agreement on the Bronson water tower. He said that both attorneysÂ have been in discussion. Pat wanted to update the Council on exactly who will beneÂ“ t by this agreement. Mr. Lort said that North Florida Broadband will beneÂ“ t by using the asset as a match requirement for the grant itself. e tower will allow NFBA to push the service further out to the community. By doing this the Town of Bronson will be helping the middle mile providers get service out to those citizens that might not have broadband, or the town itself could consider becoming its own last mile provider and provide service to its citizens generating a new revenue source for the Town. Mayor Roberts brought up her concern regarding the 20 year lease. Attorney Warm expounded on this concern and asked about the cancellation process. Councilman Kennedy then asked about a franchise fee. After some further discussion regarding franchise fee and the town becoming a last mile provider. Pat suggests getting a memorandum of understanding between the town and NFBA if they want to pursue becoming a last mile provider.

Clerk Brettel presented a list of occupied properties that have not hooked up to sewer as requested. Kelli wanted to point out the two corner properties south of Standridge which was not part of the initial grant, but is part of the present USDA grant. She stated in all fairness that these two property owners get the option to hook up or wait until the new project is completed. She then asked about Mr. Strickland who is not on water or sewer. Jimmy wanted to point out that stub outs were not installed for three of the property owners on the list when sewer was installed. Councilman Kennedy said that should not be a deterrent from making them connect the Town will just have to install them. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow Kelli to send letters regarding connection to Mr. Strickland and the School Board properties. Motion was seconded by Councilman Edmondson. Motion passed unanimously. Councilman Weeks then made a second motion asking Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford to work up pricing for materials and labor and installation of stub outs for the other three properties Meridian, Cooper, Neely.

Clerk Brettel said she is just waiting for someone to respond which might not be until school starts again in August. He wants to keep moving with or without the college intern. Councilman Kennedy asked what Mayor Roberts discussed with the youth league she said she was not able to make that meeting due to a Dr.Âs appointment. Several of the Councilmen suggested a part time person. She wants to get with sta to discuss a plan for the Parks & Recreation Program and the Bronson Youth League and bring it back to Council. BRONSON YOUTH LEAGUE: PUBLIC UTILITIES: Public Works Director Dunford presented quotes to replace both main water meters at the compound. He informed the Council of the water loss issues we found while working on the water rates. He said that by replacing these two meters which are very old will be a good start since we think that is where we think the problem lies. Jimmy wants to purchase the ML3 meters for both wells. Councilman Weeks made a motion to replace the meters at the water plant. Vice Mayor Schuler seconded his motion. Motion passed unanimously. Councilman Kennedy asked if we had been approached by Cedar Key for any water which we had not Jimmy stated he thought they were still getting their water from Fanning Springs. INFRASTRUCTURE/SEWER COMMITTEE: Councilman Weeks presented ordinances from Fanning Springs and also the rate analyses from the Preliminary Evaluation Report (PER) prepared by Mittauer and Associates. Councilman Weeks wanted to publicly state that he is totally against impact fees. He thinks if the Town wants to bring businesses to Bronson we shouldnÂt implement an impact fee. He then asked Kelli to explain the numbers in the PER and what she updated in pencil. Kelli went on to explain what Â“ gures she penciled in and where and why she updated them which was completely based on how the letter of conditions came in based on the actual grant award. She also wanted to point out some discussion points in regards to the Ordinances from Fanning Springs and directed the Council to their rates and how they were set. Mr. Cameron Asbell asked if he could get a copy of this report. Mr. Asbell as a business owner then said he is not opposed to sewer nor opposed to paying for sewer, but not at the prices he had heard recently to our struggling businesses. Mayor Roberts responded to Mr. AsbellÂs concerns stating that we have to show accurate information to USDA that we can a ord this project. Councilman Edmondson then stated that water and sewer should be based on usage. Clerk Brettel then spoke about the new house bill that has passed regarding annual inspections and possible maintenance of septic tanks. Natalie omas reiterated what Kelli was saying was true she understands the annual inspection fee for septic tanks was $500-$600 and Â“ nes if you donÂt comply. Natalie also brought up the impact fee the county charges and you get nothing she said at least the Town is providing a service and the opportunity for growth. She said she was born and raised here and no one wants this County to grow she doesnÂt want the fees to be high but she understands that everyone will have to pay. Councilman Edmondson said that we should adopt the study from Florida Rural Water and give a good discount of 50% o Councilman Kennedy spoke about a fair and equitable discount and for existing business owners they have the option of term it out over 2 to 4 years. After more general discussion about second and third phases and funding, Mayor Roberts asked for a motion to establish something on the books. Councilman Kennedy then started to talk about options and parameters. 1) Termed out over 48 months for full price. 2) $3,526.00 with a 25% discount termed out for 3 years 3) $3,526.00 with a 50% discount termed for 90 days. It was discussed that the property owners would still be responsible for the pumping out and crushing and Â“ lling of their septic tanks. Councilman Kennedy wanted that service contracted out to make it easy and timely for everyone. Councilman Kennedy made a motion to accept the rates presented to the Council by Florida Rural Water Association excluding the double charge as changed by Clerk Brettel, but within that charge to only existing residents and businessÂ within the Town of Bronson a 50% discount if paid all at once or termed out over 90 days. Or the full $3,526.00 can be termed out over 48 months interest free. A lien will be placed on the property for all unpaid balances, and with a condition that if a property owner selects the 90 day program and the permit is Â“ led, but for unforeseen circumstances makes it impossible to complete the hook up they will not be subject to the full price. Councilman Edmondson seconded this motion. Motion passed 3 to 1 with Councilman Weeks opposing. A question was posed to the Council regarding the pump, crushing and Â“ lling. Councilman Kennedy said that will be a separate matter when we discuss the connection fee and get quotes back. Mr. James Beck asked when this motion takes e ect. Clerk Brettel said that this would have to be adopted by Ordinance. Councilman Weeks asked that since this was all decided that he felt the Council should allow Mr. James Beck to connect so he is not subject to extra costs from the environmental health department. Councilman Edmondson asked Mr. Beck how he is going to handle the crushing and Â“ lling of his septic if he hooks up. Mr. Beck responded saying he has already contracted with a professional that is certiÂ“ ed and gave him 1/2, payment. Councilman Weeks made a motion to allow Mr. Jim Beck hook up to the sewer system. Councilman Kennedy seconded that motion. Motion passed unanimously. INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE: Councilman Kennedy updated the Council on their last meeting.

It is absolutely atrocious that this President that was elected to o ce by the voters in the United States doesnÂt have to give an answer as to what happened, doesnÂt have to give up the tape of the attack and doesnÂt have to pay the price for lying. Lying is not acceptable. I have had enough of the lies. I would be proud for one of my sons to be protecting this country or helping foreign countries to build schools and economies to be independent from dictators. But not under an administration as treasonous (giving aid and comfort to the enemies of oneÂs government) as this as they stand up for terrorists and apologize for our 1st Amendment right to free speech.

They plan to master all their times tables as soon as possible!To celebrate National Wildlife Refuge Week 2012, the Lower Suwannee NWR had several events throughout the week. e celebratory ribbon cutting for the Grand Opening of the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge classroom was anticlimactic compared to the exciting events for the remainder of the day. Home schooled students from three neighboring counties joined Refuge managers, rangers, and volunteers for the best day Refuge Classroom Celebrates with Birds of Prey of school theyÂd ever had. Students from second to ninth grades arrived for the opening ceremonies, then hopped aboard the hayride that would take them down the Refuge Nature Drive, through wetlands, uplands, and past a bat house to the historic Suwannee River. Each student Â“ lled-in the Refuge Wildlife Scavenger Hunt sheets as they passed by zebra swallow-tails, blooming purple liatris, downy woodpeckers hammering on a snag, and coreopsis, our state wildÂ” ower. e lesson at the riverÂs edge was testing temperature, turbidity, and dissolved oxygen or Suwannee River water quality. Refuge volunteer and former ranger, John Lohde engaged the kids with his humorous teaching antics and the interactive water testing and reporting. New vocabulary, new tests, new conÂ“ dence for students! Upon returning from the educational hayride, the students were treated to birds of prey handled by rehabilitator and veterinarian Dr. Dawn Miller, and her assistant Elizabeth Yates of Eye of the Eagle Wildlife Sanctuary. Wings Â” apped, a great horned owl hooted, and an osprey made noise like a duck as the students settled-in for a close-up experience with the raptors. After Dr. MillerÂs raptor behavior lesson, the students were provided cameras by the Refuge Ranger and were able to take close-up photos of the magniÂ“ cent birds. After the excitement of the spectacular birds, the students were given nature journals in which they could glue their photos and write the observations they had made. While the kids learned about native bees, volunteer Sandy Palfy printedo the photos for the studentsÂ journals. By the end of the environmental education event, parents had scheduled future lessons with the Ranger to take place in Dixie County. Â is is just the kind of activities IÂd like to have my children involved with; they enjoyed the birds especially,ÂŽ said one mom, Amy Brodahl, a former teacher. ese free classes happen throughout the year, even in the summer. e Refuge Ranger is more than happy to set up lessons for your group, scouts or club at the Refuge or she can come to your location with lessons.

A Union County hunter reported that his climbing tree stand, game camera and feeder had been taken from his hunt lease in the Providence area. e total value of items was more than $500. FWC o cers Bret Gill and Joseph Johnston went to the lease where the items had been stolen and were able to develop a lead by examining physical evidence in the vicinity of the hunt lease. e o cersÂ investigation led to a nearby residence, where the occupants initially denied any knowledge of the theft. After confronting the two men with the evidence gathered, William Franklin Osteen, 32, and Wayne Alan Dickson, 26, confessed to stealing the hunting equipment. ÂMr. Dickson stated he had taken a feeder from the hunterÂs lease,ÂŽ Johnston said. Dickson stated a friend had the game camera and climbing stand. e o cers were able to recover those items in Lake Butler. Â e camera and climbing stand had been sold for $150,ÂŽ Johnston said. Â e victim was able to positively identify the items as his property, and they were returned to him.ÂŽ e two men are being charged with grand theft, dealing in stolen property, and trespass.

Putnam announced today that the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer ServicesÂ Florida Forest Service has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the United States Air Force to support the military training missions in Northwest Florida, while allowing for compatible use on Florida state forests. Â e department is proud to work with the United States Air Force to provide areas where the men and women of our Armed Forces can conduct the necessary training missions to protect our country and its citizens,ÂŽ said Commissioner Putnam. Â is agreement also ensures the sustainability of local economies that are based on a strong military presence, while preserving the stewardship of our state forests.ÂŽ As part of the Gulf Regional Airspace Strategic Initiative (GRASI), the departmentÂs Florida Forest Service will allow limited military missions on portions of Blackwater River State Forest and TateÂs Hell State Forest. According to the Air Force, expanding the training onto state forests continues the economic beneÂ“ ts of the military presence in the Panhandle, while protecting the state forestsÂ natural resources. In fact, military employment makes up for 46 percent of all jobs in Northwest Florida and provides an annual impact of more than $14.8 billion in Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, and Bay counties. e memorandum with the United States Air Force will further protect our Northwest Florida military bases from defense base closures and realignment discussions (BRAC) because of the strong state support for our military installations. ese missions will make use of existing forestry areas, such as the grass air landing strip at Blackwater River State Forest and various helicopter landing pads on TateÂs Hell State Forest. Missions will not negatively impact recreation, public access or sustainable forestry practices on either state forest. Before any missions are conducted, Air Force and Florida Forest Service personnel are required to develop an operations plan that outlines training speciÂ“ cs to guarantee minimal impact to the state forest and its users. Only special operations, air operations, and use of existing forestry facilities will be allowed, no live ammunition will be Â“ red on the state forests. Â e Florida Forest Service manages its state forests under a multiple-use concept that allows for sustainable forestry practices, public access recreation and other uses,ÂŽ said Jim Karels, director of the Florida Forest Service. ÂAllowing these exercises on our state forests is another leg of our multiple-use mission.ÂŽ e Florida Forest Service manages more than one million acres of public forest land on 35 state forests and protects over 26 million acres of private homes, lands, and natural resources from wildÂ“ re.

ÂDern Skeeters,ÂŽ Dad said, ÂHalf a can of bug spray ainÂt done nothing but get emÂ drunk.ÂŽ I could tell my little brother Heath was waging a similar battle by the way his Â” ashlight beam stabbed erratically into the thick night. I was seriously second guessing DadÂs plan by the time we slid that Jon boat down the slippery bank into the bayouÂs murky water. ÂYou got your shells boy?ÂŽ dad asked pushing us o I nodded and broke the breech on my little .410 shotgun and plugged one in. ÂLook-a-there,ÂŽ he warned, shining his light across the thick swamp ahead. Several sets of eyes reÂ” ected back as they slithered across the black water, or hung from the low branches. I gulped. HeathÂs face seemed frozen in a state of panic. en a low belch erupted from down the bank, slowly dissipating behind the unceasing chorus of crickets. Â ereÂs old Kermit,ÂŽ dad grinned. ÂIÂve been after that big boy all year.ÂŽ As we skimmed further down the bayou I took aim and blasted a steely eyed water snake swimming near the boat. e spray shot up high into the air and rained on us all. e snake barrel rolled, Â” opped, and sunk to the muddy bottom. ÂBoy, donÂt be wasting your shells,ÂŽ Dad barked. ÂSave emÂ for the ones trying to get in the boat.ÂŽ It was at that point I think little Heath may have gone into shock. Dad scanned the bank until he Â“ nally came across the big green croaker he was after. He laid his barbed poking pole across his lap and paddled toward it quietly. I expected the big old frog to leap away, but he sat, fascinated by our lights. en, from out of nowhere, a huge black water moccasin slithered over coiling up right in front of Kermit. ÂI canÂt get a shot. Turn back,ÂŽ I whispered, ÂDadÂƒ turn backÂƒÂŽ He just kept paddling. As we drew closer that fat frogÂs muscles tensed. He was about to leap! Dad noticed it and sprung to action. I guess the thought of letting old Kermit get away again was too much for him. In an instant he had leaned out over that hissing snake and thrust his spear into his fat little buddy with amazing precision. e snake immediately retaliated, lashing out with those long sharp fangs. Digging in, that old serpent spun wildly injecting his full load of venom. I screamed. Oh the horror of it all!!! ÂHush boy,ÂŽ Dad yelled. e snake had only latched on to his gigging stick. Dad shook him o whacked him with the paddle, and slapped his prize frog Popsicle in poor little HeathÂs quivering lap. But anywayI reckon this old world can seem about as dark and violent as that old bayou many times. It almost makes you want to run and hide under a pew somewhere. Of course, as Christians we canÂt. God cares too deeply about those froggy souls out there in the muck and mire that need hauling into the boat. Somebody has to take His light out into the darkness so that He can pluck them out. (But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people; that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light; 1 Peter 2:9 KJV) Sometimes the mere contemplation of meandering outside my comfort zone for the cause of Christ triggers the enemy to pelt my mind with such a barrage of tormenting thoughts concerning my own inadequacies that I inevitably want to whack myself in the head with a Â” ashlight. at nasty serpent just seems to be daring me to try. Well let him hiss. HeÂs just a liar. Besides, we donÂt come in our own strength? God has given us the tools and the armor we need to work way beyond his reach. God will help us shake o that old serpent, whack him in the head, and leave out of there with the prize. ItÂs time we Christians began to think outside the boat! God may not need us all to walk on water, but He does need a Church at least willing to lean out every now and then. It always helps me to remember how Jesus sent people back into the darkness to rescue me. I say letÂs stop second guessing DadÂs plan.-Guy She eld You can visit Guy at his website www.butanyway.org, or email him at guy.she firstname.lastname@example.org.

Email classi eds@ levyjournal.comClassi ed Ads e U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission continues to maintain its heightened watch over nuclear power plants in the Northeastern United States impacted by Sandy. ree reactors experienced shutdowns during the storm while another plant, Oyster Creek in New Jersey, remains in an ÂAlertÂŽ due to high water levels in its water intake structure. e three reactors to experience trips, or shutdowns, during the storm are Nine Mile Point 1 in Scriba, N.Y., Indian Point 3 in Buchanan, N.Y.; and Salem Unit 1 in Hancocks Bridge, N.J. Nine Mile Point 1 underwent an automatic shutdown at about 9 p.m. Monday when an electrical fault occurred on power lines used to send power to the grid. It is likely a stormrelated event, but the plantÂs operators are still evaluating the cause. All plant safety systems responded as designed and the shutdown was safely carried out. Meanwhile, Nine Mile Point 2 experienced a loss of one of two incoming o -site power lines as a result of the fault. One of the plantÂs emergency diesel generators started in response to generate power usually provided by the line. Nine Mile Point 2 remained at full power. Indian Point 3 automatically shut down at about 10:40 p.m. Monday in response to electrical grid disturbances caused by the storm. All safety systems responded as designed and the unit was placed in a safe shutdown condition. Salem Unit 1 was manually shut down by plant operators at about 1:10 a.m. Tuesday as a result of circulating-water pumps being a ected by high river level and debris in the waterway. e circulating-water system is used to cool down steam generated by the reactor; it is a closed system that does not come into contact with any radioactivity. At Oyster Creek, the Alert was declared at approximately 8:45 p.m. An alert is the secondlowest level of emergency classiÂ“ cation used by the NRC. e Alert was preceded by an ÂUnusual EventÂŽ at about 7 p.m. when the water level Â“ rst reached a minimum high water level criteria. e water level rose due to a combination of a rising tide, wind direction and storm surge. While the water level has dropped since peaking earlier today, the Alert will not be exited until the level is below the speciÂ“ c criteria for the intake structure, which is where water from an intake canal is pumped into the plant for cooling purposes. Oyster Creek was shut down for a refueling and maintenance outage prior to the storm and the reactor remains out of service. e NRC will continue to coordinate with other federal and state agencies prior to the restart of the a ected plants. e NRC stationed inspectors at all of the plants expected to experience the greatest e ects of the storm. ose inspectors were tasked with independently verifying that operators were following relevant procedures to ensure plant safety before, during and after the storm. In addition, the NRC has been monitoring the storm from its emergency response centers. Nuclear power plant procedures require that the facilities shut down under certain severe weather conditions. e plantsÂ emergency diesel generators are available if o -site power is lost during the storm. Also, all plants have Â” ood protection above the predicted storm surge, and key components and systems are housed in watertight buildings capable of withstanding hurricane-force winds and Â” ooding.

Building 1: At the time BellÂs Restaurant & Catering Â“ rst lease agreement was approved Commissioners agreed the rent would be a Â” at bottom line rate of $800.73, which includes sales tax and insurance. Calculation for this bottom line rate is $720 Rent +$50.40 Tax + 30.33 Insurance = $800.73. e calculation per square foot for the rent would equal approximately $3.46 per square foot per year ($720.88). BellÂs lease agreement expires in December 2012. Building 3: e rental history of this 30Âx75Â building reveals in 1995 Pitts Custom Glass began his lease at $1.00 per square foot per year and ended in 2003 with $1.14. Commissioners approved an agreement the same year with Razorback Fiberglass for $1.16 per square foot per year. e agreements with the next two tenants Hall Services in 2005 and Haulstar, Inc. in 2008 began and ended with the rate of $1.16. e same rate $1.16 was approved for Nature Coast Services in 2008 and was renewed in July. Nature Coast Services lease agreement expires in July 2013. Building 4&5: Tremblay Fabrications leased this site from 1996 to 2002 during which time additions were made to the building. Due to the slowing economy in 2002 Tremblay was unable to fulÂ“ ll the terms of his lease agreement. Commissioners approved for Coarsey Fiberglass to assume the same rights, terms and obligations in the relinquished agreement. e rate per square foot has not changed since 1999. CoarseyÂs lease agreement expires in September 2015. Mr. Hartzog said the square footage for Building 3 is 2,250 and Building 1 is 2,500. Commissioner Hudson said he does not have problem with Coarsey Fiberglass because they have been there for a long time. Building 3 has been turned over quite a bit and there is quite a big di erence in the rent between this building and Building 1. Mr. Hartzog agreed saying Building 1 is a newer building. Commissioners agreed to revisit the rent for Building 3 upon renewal of the lease agreement.

Vice-Mayor Barron called the meeting to order at 5:40 P.M. MEMBERS PRESENT: Teal Pomeroy, Mayor-Commissioner Teresa Barron, Vice Mayor-Commissioner Frank Buie, Commissioner Sammy Cason, Commissioner Rollin Hudson, Commissioner MEMBERS ABSENT: None ALSO PRESENT: Grady Hartzog, City Manager Laurie Copeland, Financial Project Coordinator Mr. Hartzog informed the Commission that Sta was working with the grant engineers to revise the scale of the grant application from the original plan and design, due to cost overruns. Instead of being able to include the water facility improvements in the Hardeetown and City Hall areas, they would now be concentrating on only doing sewer renovations, in these areas. ey would also be installing new sewer to the Hart Brothers/Manatee Apartment neighborhood and would place the Usher Center neighborhood sewer installation as an unmet need if the grant dollars will stretch far enough. Mr. Hartzog then turned the presentation over to Laurie Copeland, the Financial Coordinator to explain how the project scope was determined. Ms. Copeland explained that after working with the grant engineer and grant consultant, along with other city sta they knew that funds would not stretch to meet all of the needs of the project. So, sta had to begin to revise the project and looking at the grant scoring process they quickly determined that by eliminating the water rehab projects, they could become a more viable application. Once they had begun counting households by doing the door to door surveys, it was determined that there were more households to be served in the Hart Bros/Manatee Apartment new sewer install project, than the Usher Center install; and because the number of beneÂ“ ciaries served, and the cost for delivery of service is a factor; it was made the primary project over Usher in the new sewer upgrades category. In the other parts of town Hardeetown area and City Hall sections their sewer facilities upgrade to piping and manholes became the secondary projects, with Usher Center falling to the un-met needs category. is process along with each of the project sites was presented and reviewed by the Citizens Advisory Task Force at its September 6, 2012 meeting, and approved. CATF board member Sylvia McCullar was present and was recognized by Ms. Copeland at that time. Ms. McCullar said that the board did support the project, and only wished that there were more funds available to do more work. Ms. Copeland explained that they were hopeful that once the construction bids came in that they would be lower, and that they could do more work include the Usher area. e Vice Mayor asked Âso this has not been bid yet thenÂŽ and Ms. Copeland told her Âno not yetÂŽ. So the Commissioner then said they hoped it would come in lower too and if so we would go back and get this other work done, and Ms. Copeland assured them they would. Ms. Copeland went over the option with the Commission of having the grant engineer prepare drawings to submit with their application, which would give them an additional 100 points in the application process. She said that she felt conÂ“ dent that if they got to 743 points that the City should be fundable in this cycle, without the points, it was questionable. However, the decision was theirs as always. Commission Cason asked if they did not get the funds what would happen to the plans. Ms. Copeland said they would still have them to use for the next cycle, and the nice thing about using the City money up-front was that this money would now be freed up in the grant cycle to use for construction instead of engineering. So now they could have more money to perhaps put towards UsherÂs sewer, if the construction bids did come in low. e Vice-Mayor said she thought this might be something to consider. e City Manager stated we could use the sewer development fund monies to pay for the plans, since this would be expansion of the sewer. e Mayor having come into the meeting late asked the citizens if they had any questions regarding the project. Mrs. McCullar again addressed the board stating that she had concerns as a member of the CATF board about the fact that there were homes that the grant money could not help, and that the city needed to do something to help those citizens. She wanted to form a committee to start raising funds for the City to have the money to help citizens to be able to be put onto city sewer since grant funds cannot always be used to reach them. e Commission thanked her for her concern and e orts. ere being no further public comment, Commissioner Cason made the motion to submit the FFY 2012 NR grant application and to give the Mayor and City Manager authority to sign all of the required documents on the CityÂs behalf. Motion seconded by Commissioner Buie. e Mayor asked if that included funding the engineering plans, and Commissioner Cason said ÂyesÂŽ so he was asked to amend his motion, to include, the follow statement, including funding up to $25,000 for engineering design plans, to be funded from the sewer development fund. Commissioner Buie, again seconded the amended motion, motion passed 5-0. ere being no further discussion. e meeting adjourned at 6:10 PM. Attest; Grady Hartzog, City Manager M.

Reschedule Board of Adjustment and Code Enforcement Meeting Mr. Hartzog said the property owner has requested the meeting be rescheduled for the October 8, 2012 meeting at 5:30PM. Commissioner Cason made a motion to reschedule the Board of Adjustment and Code Enforcement meeting to October 8th at 5:30PM. Commissioner Buie seconded. Motion passed 5-0.Police Chief Robert DouglasPolice Activity Update Chief Douglas gave an update on recent police activity.Assistant Fire Chief A.D. GoodmanNo reports.City Attorney Norm D. FugateNo reports.Old BusinessNoneCommissioners New BusinessCommissioner Barron asked Mr. Hartzog if he checked on the street light at the depot. He stated the light should be working. Commissioner Hudson asked Mr. Hammond if he helped Mrs. Mary Lee Blake get the permit for a mobile home, she has some issues getting the electric turned on. Mr. John Henry Donaldson said Central Florida Electric has a policy that all the heirs have to sign before the power can be turned on and itÂs nothing having to do with the City. Mayor Pomeroy said he read about Otter Creek being shut down by the Levy County. He said it might be time to talk with the County to see what the City can do with them in the future. He said he heard something will be changing in Â“ re district 7 in the future so the City should be pro-active and some of the County Commissioners have concerns about district 7. Vice Mayor Barron said they havenÂt talked to the Â“ re department about that. Mayor Pomeroy said the City should talk to the County and work with them to either maintain the department or merge. Mr. Fugate said the City Commission approved a formal request to have a workshop with the County Commission to discuss this and he asked them and they said they were not interested. Mayor Pomeroy said the County thought the direction the City was coming from was to take over more areas. He said the direction the City should be looking at is scaling back. Vice Mayor Barron said she has had meetings with Chief Knowles and tried to have meetings with the County Commission but questions donÂt get answered. She said itÂs not to the tax payerÂs advantage in the City of ChieÂ” and to allow the County to take over their Â“ re department. Mayor Pomeroy said if the County takes away Â“ re district 7 the City will have a shell of a Â“ re department, the department could not operate without Â“ re district 7. Deputy Chief Stockman disagreed saying the City would not have to cover district 7. Vice Mayor Barron said if the County was to take over the City Â“ re department citizens within the municipal area will have to pay the $90 assessment if the City would collect the same assessment it would bring in about $580,000. Vice Mayor Barron said the City of ChieÂ” and could entertain the idea of placing a Â“ re assessment within the City of ChieÂ” and that would put the mechanism in place, so if the County decides to dump the City at the end of this next Â“ scal year the mechanism would be in place to make that assessment. e City citizens would not be paying any more than what they would be with the County. Mayor Pomeroy said he does not see any point in competing with another Â“ re department right outside of town. He said he sees a long slow cutting of the Â“ re department if this continues. Deputy Chief Stockman said itÂs not a competition itÂs a matter of level of service to the community. Vice Mayor Barron said the only way to guarantee a particular level of service is to maintain control over the district. Commissioner Cason asked if ChieÂ” and is still responding to calls in Otter Creek city limits. Assistant Chief Goodman replied yes until September 30, 2012. Dr. Bill Martin, Dr. Bob Mount and Doug King spoke on the subject.Public CommentMr. Kyle Quincy asked if what the County is doing will improve the service for citizens to get a better PC class. Vice Mayor Barron said a certain level of service is needed to get under a 9 rating.CorrespondenceFirst Baptist Church of Chie and Â– Mayor Pomeroy read a letter from the First Baptist Church commending Fire Captain Ben Lowe, Captain Colby Perryman and FireÂ“ ghter Nike She er for taking blood pressures during the First Baptist Mobile Dental Clinic.Approval of Public Budget Hearing Minutes and Regular Minutes Â– September 10, 2012Vice Mayor Barron made the motion to approve the budget and regular meeting minutes for September 10, 2012.

Mr. Hartzog said the City has installed deaf child signs on the street. Mayor Pomeroy asked each Commissioner to look at the area on S.E. 8th Terrace and call Mr. Hartzog with their thoughts. Mayor Pomeroy asked Mr. Hartzog to obtain a current quote for a speed bump/hump and call Mrs. Barrios with the outcome. Chief Douglas suggested posting a 15 mph speed zone in that area. ere being no further business to discuss, the meeting adjourned at 7:15 PM. Attest; Grady Hartzog, City Manager M. Teal Pomeroy, Mayor/Commissioner Recorded by: Mary Ellzey, Deputy City Clerk e ChieÂ” and City Commission met in Regular Session at City Hall. Mayor Pomeroy called the meeting to order at 7:35 P.M. MEMBERS PRESENT: Teal Pomeroy, Mayor-Commissioner Teresa Barron, Vice Mayor-Commissioner Frank Buie, Commissioner Sammy Cason, Commissioner Rollin Hudson, Commissioner MEMBERS ABSENT: None ALSO PRESENT: Grady Hartzog, City Manager Robert Douglas, Police Chief James Harris, Fire Chief Laurie Copeland, Project and Finance CoordinatorReview of Proposed General Fund BudgetsVice Mayor Barron said Mr. Robert Beauchamp address the issue, in a letter, about logging the $58,000 of paving without a corresponding expense entry, the City would be overspent the budget by $58,000. Mrs. Copeland said in the letter Mr. Beauchamp said at the end of the year the way the money is being budgeted if the City spends only what comes in the unrestricted cash would still be down $58,000 because the franchise money is being deposited in a restricted cash account as required. Mayor Barron said the fact remains because the City does not have that money set aside the City is budgeting to spend that money. Mrs. Copeland said the City is not violating anything by doing that, the City will adjust the restricted cash account at the end of the year. Mr. Hartzog said restricted means that it cannot be spent without Commission approval. Commissioner Hudson said it shows that it will be gone. Mayor Pomeroy agreed saying there will be a $58,000 shortfall. Vice Mayor Barron said if the City comes in under budget by $58,000 it will be ok. Mayor Pomeroy said ChieÂ” and is the last government entity in the drug task force and he would like to terminate it and the next time an o cer leaves eliminate the drug task force position. Mr. John Henry Donaldson said in 1997 the drugs in ChieÂ” and were so bad you could not walk on S.W. 2nd Street. ChieÂ” and has never been as protective of the citizens from drugs and drug dealers as now. He said there are some things more important than money. Mr. Donaldson voiced his support in staying in the drug task force. Vice Mayor Barron noted the Police Department budget is at 97%. She noted the overtime is $20,000 overspent. Chief Douglas said US Marshall will reimburse the City $14,000 for overtime. He said when his budget is cut every year he can only operate on what he is given and when there isnÂt enough to operate the budget will go over. Mayor Pomeroy said when there is that much overtime something is not being managed correctly. He said if the man is working a stake out at night he should take o the next morning to comp the time. Vice Mayor Barron said the Police Department operating expense is overspent and also repair and maintenance. Chief Douglas said he has received insurance reimbursement checks for three vehicles. Vice Mayor Barron said gasoline and oil is overspent by more than $10,000. Chief Douglas said gas was budgeted at $3.00 per gallon and the police o cers are putting gas in their patrol cars. Mr. Hartzog said the Commission can cut the budget if they wish but the budget is balanced now and sta will keep it under control by not spending. Vice Mayor Barron said one option is to transfer funds from the water and sewer to general fund. Mr. Hartzog agreed saying that can be done with a budget amendment. Mayor Pomeroy said he is Â“ ne leaving it like it is and watching it and at the end of the year there should be $58,000 not spent. Commissioner Cason agreed. No changes made to the general fund budgets.Review of the Proposed Fire Fund BudgetMayor Pomeroy said this past year the Â“ re department was taken out of the general fund and made it a stand-alone entity. e Fire Chief cut $33,000 funds from Otter Creek. Mayor Pomeroy mentioned the loans the Â“ re department made from general fund. Mr. Hartzog said by letter Mr. Beauchamp asked for time to do the CityÂs Â“ nal audit which he will do Â“ rst this year. Mayor Pomeroy said the utility department borrowed money from general fund and previously Mr. Beauchamp said that should be put in the budget as a line item so it will be paid back. Mrs. Copeland said the utility department will pay back general fund this Â“ scal year. Vice Mayor Barron said the Â“ re department has not spent more money than it has brought in it has always been under budget. No changes made to the proposed Â“ re budget. Review of the Proposed Law Enforcement Trust Fund Mayor Pomeroy said he has super strong reservations on not signing anything to the County thatÂs to be used as equitable sharing. No changes made to the proposed law enforcement trust fund budget.Review of Utility FundMr. Randy Wilkerson said revenue was lost due to Central Florida Electric moving but the City picked up 42 customers behind Pizza Hut. Mrs. Copeland said the water revenue was decreased an additional $5,000 because all customers in North ChieÂ” and have not hooked up to water. No changes made to the proposed utility fund budget.Review of Industrial Park BudgetNo changes made to the proposed industrial park fun budget. Resolution Number 12-13 Adopting Final Millage Rate Fiscal Year 2012-2013 Resolution Number 12-13 sets the Â“ nal millage at 4.7500 for Â“ scal year 2012-2013. Mayor Pomeroy asked for public comment. Dr. Mount said revenues have to balance expenditures. Mr. Donaldson said he read in the paper that the Commission was making the building inspector part time. Mayor Pomeroy said it was discussed but the Commission said no. Commissioner Hudson said in building and zoning the secretary was transferred and the City Commission assumed the duties of the planning board. Mr. Hammond said the planning board was cut $9,900 and code enforcement was cut $22,000. Mayor Pomeroy said building and zoning is not as important as the Â“ re and police departments. Dr. Martin said in looking at where the general fund is the Commission has to look into getting more revenue. He said the Commission has done an amazing job making cuts but as a business person in the community it makes him nervous when he sees the general fund getting as low as it is. Dr. Martin suggested making an adjustment in the millage next year. Mayor Pomeroy said that wonÂt happen while he is on the Commission. Dr. Richeson asked what the legal sources of revenues are. Mayor Pomeroy said some are water and sewer, ad valorem, franchise fees, utility tax, occupational license, discretionary tax. Dr. Richeson asked when the last time the blue law on Sunday has been addressed. Mayor Pomeroy said 4 years ago. Mr. Doug King asked what will the City when gas goes up, oil goes up, pumps go out and everything continue goes up how will the City operate. Mayor Pomeroy said the City has to look at the cash on hand and if the City starts dipping into that something will have to be done. After further discussion, Commissioner Hudson moved to adopt the Â“ nal millage of 4.7500 millage rate for Â“ scal year 2012-2013. Commissioner Cason seconded. Motion passed 5-0. Resolution Number 12-14 Adopting Final Budget Fiscal Year 2012-2013 Commissioner Cason made a motion to approve the Â“ nal budget for Â“ scal year 20122013. Commissioner Buie seconded.

Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation. We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing results we received from samples taken 08/28/2012 show that our system ex ceeds the standards, or maximum contaminant lev els (MCL), for Disinfection By-Products (DBPs), which includes Total Triha lomethanes (TTHMs) and Haloacetic Acids [Five] (HAA5s). The standard for TTHMs is 80 micrograms per liter ( g/L) and the average level of TTHMs over the last year was 124.05 g/L. The standard for HAA5s is 60 g/L, the average level of HAA5s over the last year was 58.54 g/L. What should I do? Some people who drink water containing TTHMs in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Some people who drink water containing HAA5s in excess of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of getting cancer. Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to DBPs may choose alternative sources of water for ingestion. What does this mean? This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately. What is being done? This is what we are doing to lower our DBPs levels: We are flushing the system. We are reducing the chlorine residual to help reduce DBPs. We are increasing sampling for DBPs. We will inform you when additional samples show levels of DBPs below the MCLs. We have an engineer evaluating the situation. He will be making a recommendation in the coming weeks. There are several options avail able to us. For more information, please contact the town clerk, Rose Severino, at Town Hall (352) 486-4766. Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and busi nesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a pub lic place or distributing cop ies by hand or mail. This notice is being sent to you by Otter Creek WTP State Public Water System ID#: 2380854 Date distributed: Oct. 29, 2012 Pub.: Nov. 1, 2012. ----------
The Levy County Journal12BNovember 1, 2012www.levyjournalonline.com Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 EGGSLetÂs start o with good hard boiled eggs. Got a timer? Place eggs in the bottom of a pot and do not place any on top of the Â“ rst layer. Turn the timer to 25 minutes. Pour cold water to just over the eggs by about 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Turn the heat to just above medium and set the timer. When the timer goes o turn o the heat and let stand until the water is just warm. Drain. Perfect eggs every time. One note is that if you have fresh eggs, you will need to increase the boil time by 10 minutes just because fresh eggs have not had the whites shrink inside the shell as they age, thereby causing that hard to peel egg. Peeling warm eggs is also much easier than cold. Anytime you have an egg that Â” oats discard it.Now that you have the best hard boiled eggs ever, do something di erent for that party platter than just deviled. Cut each egg in half and remove the yolks. Prepare egg, tuna, shrimp, crab, chicken or seafood salad. Fill half the eggs with the salad of your choice and prepare the other half as deviled. Place on a platter and serve. For deviled eggs, mash the yolks, adding just enough mayonnaise with a touch of mustard to taste as well as salt and pepper. Keep the yolks Â“ rm enough so you can overÂ“ ll remembering you have one whole yolk for half the egg. For those with spicier tastes add a little horseradish sauce. Sprinkle with some beautiful red paprika. For a more elegant display, place eggs on a bed of greens with green onions, radish roses. Any leftover salad can be placed in a bowl in the center of your eggs.EASY ELEGANT OMELETSteam fresh asparagus and set aside, covering to keep warm. Chop an onion and saut in a small amount of butter until just transparent. Scramble a couple of eggs with a little salt and pepper and pour over the onions. Turn over when slightly set in one piece, if possible, and layer the asparagus on one side. Place your choice of cheese (Swiss is ideal) on the asparagus and turn the egg over the asparagus. Cook just long enough to warm the vegetable and melt the cheese.HIDING THE VEGETABLESPuree the vegetables such as carrots and stir into the gravy. It adds so much Â” avor youÂll receive compliments. Serve the pasta now found on the grocery shelves that contain vegetables and when you buy certain fruit drinks look for the ones that also contain vegetables.HELPING THE ENVIRONMENTStart buying frozen concentrated drinks that are 100% juice. DonÂt you always feel bad about all those plastic containers thrown into the trash. It only takes an extra minute to add three cans of water to the frozen concentrate perhaps in one of those old plastic bottles. e plastic containers donÂt disintegrate and are made of oil and that money, as we know, goes overseas. Send a message to these manufacturers that they should make more frozen concentrate juice available or start putting the juice into waxed cardboard containers. We control the market but just donÂt realize how much. Make a small change and see the response. ey will only make it if we buy it.
