By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterSchool Board member Chris Cowart told the Greater Chieand Area Chamber of Commerce Friday that the districts wellness center and self-insurance for health care services has saved $643,000 in the rst six months of the program. Cowart said 884 school district employees took advantage of low cost doctors visits, free prescriptions and free lab work that are part of the self-insurance program operated by CareHere Crowne, LLC out of Brentwood, Tenn. ere were 2,178 appointments in the rst six months. e school board switched to self-insurance to stem the rising cost of health insurance. e wellness centers approach is to practice preventative medicine to head o medical problems before they become catastrophic. More than 1,000 prescription medications have been dispensed from the on-site pharmacy at the wellness center next door to Bronson Middle High School. e pharmacy can dispense between 140 and 180 prescription drugs available. e school boards projected health care costs were $2,393,695, but actual costs were $1,750,832 through the program. Cowart said employees saved $37,000 on oce visits. Cowart said he had questions when the district rst started the program, but the positive response and the cost savings have convinced him of the programs value. Eighty percent of the school district employees who visited the wellness center rated their experience with the center as outstanding, while 20 percent rated it above average. Its been very, very positive for us, he said. School district employees are not required to use the wellness center. ey have the option of using their Blue Cross Blue Shield plan. Chamber President Jacob Piazza asked Cowart if any eorts are being made to include the Levy County Commission in a similar selfinsurance program to save taxpayer money. Cowart said he knows that Superintendent Bob Hastings and Sheri Bobby McCallum have spoken. School ocials conrmed Monday they plan to talk further about health insurance. One of the reasons the school district switched New Technology to Be Used in Aug. 26 Election PrimaryBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterVote scanning machines that will be used at Levy County precincts in August 26 primary election look similar to the models from previous elections, but the technology in the system recently purchased by the county commission is light years ahead of the older version, according to Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones. Voters will continue to use the same paper ballots. ey will continue to stand at same portable voting booths. e ballots will be fed into a vote scanner at the precinct to record the votes. e scanners will send the results back to election headquarters in Bronson by way of telephone lines. But there is one big dierence. e precinct vote scanners are brand spanking new. ey work much like the old scanners, but the technology is more advanced. Voters will still feed their ballots into a slot on the scanner. But if there is a mistake on the ballot, a computer screen in front of the voter will explain what the voter did wrong. e old scanners didnt have a computer screen on top of the machine. Voters need not panic if they make a mistake. e clerk standing Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones stands amid the vote scanning machines to be used at precincts. The scanners ll the entire back room of the elections oce. Jones is asking county commissioners for an air conditioned building to store the scanners and train poll workers.

David Anthony Newmeyer was killed when the stolen truck he was driving was forced o the road by Dixie County Sheri Dewey Hatcher near Old Town and rolled over. His two passengers survived. e jacked-up Dodge Ram 2500 Mega Cab Truck with a powerful diesel engine was nearly stopped twice by law enforcement ocers in Levy County, rst when it spun out on the shoulder of U.S. 27 outside Williston near County Road 335 and again when it skidded into the parking lot of Chieand High School. Newmeyer eluded law enforcement both times. e Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating the case because the suspect died in a high speed chase. e FDLE will report its ndings to the State Attorney. A decision will be made by the State Attorney on whether law enforcement acted legally in its pursuit of Newmeyer. ey take a long time, said FDLE Spokesman Steve Arthur. ey do a thorough job. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand Fire Chief James Harris told his ve bosses Monday that the Levy County Commission may one day pull the plug on re funding for the city and force the city to shoulder the entire bill for Chieand Fire Rescue. e county commission currently provides the city with about half of the $433,000 used to operate the department. e county money is used to ght res and respond to medical calls outside the city limits of Chieand. But the county hasnt tipped its hand with regard to the level of re funding it plans to give Chieand in next years budget. Harris said he has heard rumblings that county sta has an interest in canceling the contract with Chieand. I will say this to you again get ready to stand on your own, Harris said. County Commission Chairman Ryan Bell, who did not attend the city commission meeting, told the Journal that he has never heard anyone in county government discuss taking away Chieands county re funding. Bell said if anything, the county has increased its re funding to Chieand over the years. He said the county is well aware of the value of municipal re departments throughout Levy County in providing re protection to the unincorporated areas of the county. e county to my knowledge has never discussed anything that would adversely aect any of the city re departments, budget-wise or otherwise, Bell said. Chieand has gotten zero increases some years, but never less money. Citing one example of how the county has backed Chieand, Bell said when Chieand extended its city boundary on U.S. 19 from the Walgreens Road up to Stones BP, it reduced the number of citizens and businesses paying the county re tax because they fell within the city limits. He said the county never attempted to reduce the citys re tax funding because the county knew the value of the contributions Chieand Fire Rescue was making. Were behind all our municipal re departments, Bell said. Chieand has requested $217,016 in county re funding for the 201415 budget year, which is about what the city received last year at this time. City ocials say $12,262 of that money was for one-time equipment purchases last year, but the city wants the money to be made a permanent part of the Chieand Fire Rescue budget. e county commission hasnt ruled on the request. e city commission is setting aside $210,000 of property tax money as its share of the Chieand Fire Rescue budget. Responding to Harriss remarks, Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he believes the county is getting a good deal for the money it provides the city to ght res in the unincorporated areas, but he would like to see the county stand up and tell the city this is our plan and this is what the county Fire Chief Worried about Future of County Fire Funding for Chieand School District Saving Big Bucks on New Self-Insurance Program Williston Council Criticized for Eorts to Shut Down Airport CommitteeBy Terry Witt Senior Sta Writer Williston City Council members endured a blistering verbal blast last week from businessman Dave Bibby when he accused the council of playing politics in the ongoing eorts of the council to dissolve the Williston Airport Committee. e council voted unanimously at the meeting to approve the rst reading of the ordinance eliminating the committee. e ordinance will be up for nal approval at the city council meeting Tuesday night. Bibby said the airport committee was a hard working group of people who made recommendations to the council for years, but when Debra Jones was appointed chairwoman and Cal Bryd vice chairman the committees work was suspended. Politics got in the way, he said. He told the council he was very upset with their decision to move forward with dissolving the committee. It was because of the appointment of the chairman and vice chairman. ere was no other reason, he said. Bibby and his wife Carol own the Piper Cub Restaurant at the Williston Airport and Bibby worked at the airport for 14 years. He was a regular at airport committee meetings before the big shakeup. He was appointed to the committee in May of 2012 and attended his rst meeting at a committee member in June of 2012.

Vincent Louis Baker 43, was one of four people given sentences ranging from prison time to probation. Baker was originally sentenced to probation on charges of methamphetamine possession, but he violated his probation when he was arrested in Citrus County in May on charges of methamphetamine possession, possession of a controlled substance and possession of paraphernalia. e original arrest on May 3, 2012 occurred after the Levy County Drug Task Force served a search warrant on a residence where methamphetamine was believed to be sold and distributed. Baker lived at the residence. Task force members found Baker inside a bathroom attempting to ush liquid down a sink and shower drain. e sink contained several syringes and needles. e drain pipe was removed and found to contain .277 grams of liquid that tested positive for ephedrine. Other chemicals used in the manufacture of methamphetamine were found in the home. Zachary D. Armlin 20, Chieand, was resentenced to probation after violating his original probation by testing positive for drugs at the probation oce. He must perform 50 hours of community service and undergo an evaluation for substance abuse and accept treatment for drug abuse. Armlin came to the attention of authorities when his live-in girlfriend told authorities Armlin was using marijuana, cocaine and prescription pills at her home. She asked him to stop out of respect for their children. He refused. e original charge was connected to a burglary. On May 29, 2012 a Cedar Key police ocer who knew Armlin had a suspended drivers license saw him driving and stopped him. While writing Armlin a citation, the ocer asked about a string of burglaries in Armlins neighborhood. Armlin volunteered information that he was holding a metal detector for a friend and had the device in the van he was driving. e ocer said the metal detector was taken in one of the burglaries. Armlin was arrested on a burglary charge. Kimberly Delores Dowling 24, Cross City, was sentenced to 18 months of drug oender probation after pleading no contest to possession of a controlled substance. Dowling came to the attention of Chieand police when Wal-Mart theft prevention ocers saw her smashing store merchandise on the oor on March 3. Store security ocers said Dowling walked into cosmetics and began to place items in her pocket, but then removed the items and began smashing them on the oor. e merchandise was damaged and could not be sold. When city police took her into custody, they found a plastic eye glass case in her purse containing two straws, and a spoon with a needle and syringe. e spoon contained half of a melted pill which she identied as saboxin. She had no prescription for the drug. Dowling told ocers she had drug problems and needed help. She said she used the spoon to melt the pill. She drew the uid into a syringe and injected the liquid into her veins to get high. Nevina Rene Tease 34, Chieand, was sentenced to one year of community control followed by a year of probation after pleading no contest to conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. One of the conditions of her probation is that she is not to purchase any materials that can be used to manufacture methamphetamine. Tease admitted on May 30 that she and a male companion used and cooked methamphetamine at their home on a regular basis. She allowed investigators to search her home. ey found several items used for the manufacture of methamphetamine. One plastic container tested positive for methamphetamine. A plastic bottle contained acid. ree bottles contained an unknown liquid. ey also found crystal drain opener, lighter uid, digital scales and burnt lithium battery casings in a burn pile. She said she and a male companion had driven to Gainesville to purchase pseudophedrine, which is used in the manufacture of methamphetamine. A check of the national database that records pseudoephedrine purchases showed she had purchased the drug 24 times and was blocked twice from making purchases because she bought the drug too frequently. Her male companion had purchased pseudoephedrine 26 times and was blocked four times for making purchases of the drug too frequently.

3A New Technology to Be Used in Aug. 26 Election Primary continued from page 1A near the voting machine will give the voter a new ballot to ll out. e voter will be asked to tear up the spoiled ballot containing the mistake. e spoiled ballot will be placed in a designated bag. After the fresh ballot is lled out it will be placed in the scanner to be counted. Voters can receive up to three ballots. e new voting equipment was purchased by the Levy County Commission earlier this year at the request of Jones. e cost was $435,455. Commissioners are buying the system over a period of eight years with a warranty package that includes on-site technical assistance on election night. Jones said the new vote scanners were rst used for the Cedar Key municipal election this year and worked perfectly. She said most of the voters didnt know the scanners were new. She said Cedar Key voters liked the new machines because the scanners made a ding noise when ballots were being pulled into the device to be counted. e scanner keeps a running tab on the number of voters who have used the scanner and shows the number on the computer screen. e voting system is nationally and state certied. Jones believes the scanners will be in use 20 years from now. She wants to take good care of them. She said the rst step will be adding a climate controlled multipurpose building at the back of the elections oce to house the scanners and provide training space. She told county commissioners at a recent budget workshop that she needs a 40 by 74 multipurpose building to replace the metal building she currently uses behind the elections oce in Bronson. e cost of the new building is estimated at $240,000. She wants to move the new scanners into the building and use the existing space at the back of the elections building for early voting. Early voting currently takes place in the small front lobby of the elections oce. It doesnt allow many people to vote at one time. e rear area of the elections oce is handicapped accessible and has a bathroom for voters to use. e new vote scanners are larger than those used in the past and take up more space, and they must be stored in air-conditioned space. Each precinct will have two scanners. One scanner will be programmed for handicapped voters and will replace the old touch screen system that was sometimes awkward to use. Handicapped voters will have their choice of devices that connect to the scanner. ey can wear a pair of headphones and use a touchpad control that includes brail to vote for the candidates of their choice. ey can also use sip and pu technology or paddles. e computer screen can be raised or lowered to adjust to the eye level of the handicapped voter. Commissioners are in the early stages of their budget process and have made no decision on whether to grant Jones request for additional space. e new vote scanners two for each precinct currently ll the entire training and storage area in the elections oce. e existing metal storage building behind her oce is far too small to store the new scanners and is not air conditioned. e temperature in the building is stiing on hot summer days. Jones said she would like to give the existing storage building to the county commission for use where ever it might be needed. e commission originally bought the building for use by the elections oce. Elections technology and election laws are changing rapidly. Jones said she is trying to keep the county in compliance with election laws and technology requirements. But she says she needs a larger climate controlled block building to protect the new technology. e state is requiring counties to purchase certied voting systems by 2018. Jones said she got a better deal by purchasing the new system now. When this system is in common use by elections oces around the state, she believes the price will rise. Commissioners wont adopt their nal budget until late September. Early voting begins on Aug. 11 and ends on Aug. 23. Early voting takes place at the elections oce on Court Street next to the Levy County Courthouse. Voters can cast ballots between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. Elections oce employee Mindy Shouse demonstrates how the new vote scanners operate. The paper ballot she is using is like those to be used on election day. The ballot is inserted into a slot. The computer screen above counts the ballot and tells the voter whether they have made a technical mistake in lling out the ballot.

Newmeyer met his fate after crossing the Suwannee River Bridge with law enforcement ocers in pursuit. He made it through Old Town before Hatcher caught up to him in a pickup truck and used a pit maneuver to push against the trucks bumper and throw it into a spin. Law enforcement ocers knew who was driving the truck and were aware that Newmeyer was a drug-abuser with a history of mental illness who had stolen the truck from a spa in Ocala and was seen leaving his grandfathers house in the early morning hours. e Ocala Police Department notied Marion County sheris deputies to be on the lookout for the Dodge Ram truck following the theft at the Too Your Health Spa. Marion County deputies spotted the truck outside Ocala on U.S. 27 and attempted to stop Newmeyer. He sped away at a high rate of speed headed toward Williston. Williston Police Chief Dennis Strow said Newmeyer was driving northbound in the southbound lane of U.S. 27 when he came into Levy County at more than 100 miles per hour. In the area of Frogs BBQ restaurant he moved back into the northbound lane, but then traveled through most of Williston in the center median of the highway. Newmeyer spun out on the shoulder of U.S. 27 on north side of Williston near CR 335 and was immediately surrounded by four law enforcement patrol cars, but because he was driving a truck with an elevated cab, big tires and a powerful engine, he escaped capture by driving over the front fender of a Marion County patrol car. He literally drove over a Marion County patrol car, Strow said. Strow said the pit maneuver that was used by the Dixie County Sheris Oce to stop Newmeyer wasnt possible in Levy County because all the pursuing vehicles were patrol cars and their bumpers were too low to match up to the trucks bumper. e term PIT stands for Pursuit Immobilization Technique. A law enforcement ocer pulls alongside the eeing vehicle and puts the bumper of the patrol car against the bumper of the suspects vehicle, then turns the steering wheel a quarter turn. e maneuver is intended to throw the suspect vehicle into a spin and allow pursuing law enforcement vehicles to end the chase. We could not pull him over because of the elevation of the truck, Strow said. Strow said Newmeyer did have a weapon in his vehicle and law enforcement had received information that shots had possibly been red from the vehicle in Marion County. You talk about a worst case scenario. When you have a guy like this kid and hes going 100 miles per hour in the wrong lane, what can you do, and this wasnt his rst rodeo. e family is blaming law enforcement for his demise, but he could have pulled over at any time, Strow said. Chieand police ocers Lt. Jay Bolton and Sgt. Fonz Macy set up stop sticks on U.S. 27A near the Florida Department of Transportation oce to atten Newmeyers tires. Stop sticks contain spikes that can atten tires. Newmeyer saw the stop sticks and swerved into the southbound lane to avoid the spikes, according to Police Chief Robert Douglas. Newmeyer continued to drive through a Chieand residential area at high speed. When he arrived at the intersection of U.S. 19, he was forced to make a 90-degree right turn to head north through Chieand, but skidded o the highway into the front parking lot of the high school. He was soon on U.S. 19 headed north through Chieands business district traveling in the direction of Fanning Springs. e high school parking lot was empty because of summer vacation. During the school year the parking lot is full of student and faculty vehicles on school days. Students are constantly walking through the parking lot in the morning hours at about the time when Newmeyers truck skidded out of control. Seven patrol cars, four from Marion County, three from Levy County and two from Chieand were in pursuit as Newmeyer headed north on U.S. 19 through Chieand in the three-quarter ton four-wheel drive diesel. Its like trying to stop a tank, Douglas said. What I was worried about; Ive got to stop him before he hurts someone. He had total disregard for the safety of our citizens. I just thank God (Sheri) Hatcher put a stop to it. Levy County Sheri Bobby McCallum said a lot of factors are considered before ocers in his department give chase to a vehicle including what kind of threat the driver poses to civilians and what the driver did to draw the attention of law enforcement. is was not a nice guy. He had a long history, McCallum said. Hatcher said he was unable to talk about the case with the Journal. He said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement is investigating and the agency asked him not to talk about the case during the investigation. to self-insurance was the number of catastrophic claims led by employees. Cowart said the self-insurance program wont pay to the same level for catastrophic illness as the boards previous insurance. Assistant Superintendent Je Edison, however, told the Journal by telephone that the emphasis on prevention is aimed at preventing catastrophic claims and reducing costs. On an unrelated subject, Piazza asked if the school board is planning to hire as many local subcontractors as possible for the construction of the Williston Middle High School, realizing that not all contractors are equipped for a project that size. We want to use as many local subcontractors as possible, Cowart said. He said Oelrich Construction out of Newberry will head the project and the site superintendent is a Williston High School graduate who still lives in Williston.Chieand Chamber President Jacob Piazza thanks his two guests, Michelle Barber of the Food4Kids program and School Board member Chris Cowart. Barber is heads the Food4Kids program at Chieand Elementary School. The program sends food packs home with children who might otherwise go hungry.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923The Lefts Dark Money Managers: Meet Philip Gara LaMarche Michele MalkinCreators SyndicatePhilip Gara LaMarche is a secretive political operative who funnels billions of dollars from undisclosed donors to nonprots and astroturf groups. But you wont hear unhinged Harry Reid railing Queegishly about him on the Senate oor. Why? Heres why: LaMarche is a militant leftist philanthropist. Hes a protected elite -Columbia University grad, former ACLU leader and Human Rights Watch ocial -with ready access to the White House. He and the lefts other dark money managers preach transparency and openness, while plotting behind closed doors to secure power at every level of government. LaMarche currently heads the shadowy Democracy Alliance (DA). In internal documents obtained and published this month by John Hinderaker of the Power Line blog, the group currently describes itself as the center of gravity for the progressive funding world. DA enrolls wealthy liberal members who coordinate and nance a web of at least 132 left-wing groups. ough some of their members and partners identities have been exposed, DA takes great care to promise a cloak of donor secrecy to provide a comfortable environment for our partners to collectively make a real impact. While they bash Wall Street publicly, DA leaders have quietly recruited venture capitalists, bankers and hedge fund moguls -along with union bosses and red-diaper trust fund babies -to fund their takeover goals. Public school educators who belong to the American Federation of Teachers, headed by $500,000-plus yearly salaried President Randi Weingarten, should know that $230,000 of their hardearned union dues go to DA, as Lachlan Markay of the Washington Free Beacon has reported. While they bemoan income inequality, DA brass have wined, dined and wooed 1-percenter plutocrats with swanky get-togethers featuring New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Kentucky Secretary of State and Democratic Senate candidate Alison Grimes, and popular comediennes Stephanie Miller and Lizz Winstead. Over the past nine years, the organization brags to potential contributors, DA has aligned leaders in the progressive movement and political infrastructure to achieve victories at the ballot box and in policy ghts. eir agenda spans social justice, climate change, voting rights, gun control, illegal alien amnesty, campaign nance and sustained strategic investment to turn red states blue. ats exactly what DA members Jared Polis and Tim Gill succeeded in doing in once-GOPdominated Colorado in 2008. LaMarche previously served as president and CEO of e Atlantic Philanthropies. As I rst reported ve years ago, that entity was a Bermuda-based political front stocked with acolytes of progressive billionaire George Soros. e charity run by LaMarche dumped some $40 million to help fund the astroturf Health Care for America Now group. As the tax disclaimer for HCAN discloses, HCAN is related to Health Care for America Education Fund, a project of e Tides Center, a section 501(c)(3) public charity. e Tides Center and its parent organization, the Tides Foundation, in turn have seeded some of the countrys most radical activist groups of the left, including the communist-friendly United for Peace and Justice, the jihadist-friendly National Lawyers Guild and the grievance-mongering Council on AmericanIslamic Relations. e faux populist HCAN, coordinated from 1825 K Street, provided invaluable ground and air support to reinforce Democratic messaging on Obamacare. LaMarche met with Valerie Jarrett for hours-long meetings on at least two disclosed occasions before the health care juggernauts passage. By November 2009, he had visited the White House nine times. I checked the most updated White House visitor logs (as incomplete and shoddy as they are). LaMarche has tripled his visits over the past ve years. He is listed 23 times (21 under Philip G. LaMarche or Philip LaMarche and twice under Gara LaMarche). LaMarche also donated $18 million through e Atlantic Philanthropies to a Chicago charity headed by Jarrett. Friend of Barack and Val. Bagman for Soros. Community organizer for progressive billionaires. Chances are, LaMarche and his operators have aected you, your statehouses, your businesses and your freedom, no matter where you live.

COPYRIGHT 2014 CREATORS.COM By Florida Ag Commissioner Adam PutnamJuly 25, 2014 Each year, more than 3,000 wildres burn about 130,000 acres across Florida, threatening the lives of Floridians, as well as their homes and businesses. e men and women of the Florida Forest Service, in partnership with local reghters, bravely risk their lives to battle these blazes and protect others. Across the country, some communities are at even greater risk of wildre due to extremely dry conditions. Last week, wildres scorched more than 1 million acres in the Pacic Northwest, destroying hundreds of homes and risking many more lives. American reghters, including 20 on loan from the Florida Forest Service, are working tirelessly to suppress these wildres and save lives. Providing them with adequate equipment is critical to their eorts, as well as their own protection. e Obama Administration, however, must not agree. Just last month, the Administration canceled two programs that provide reghters with more than $150 million in military equipment the federal government no longer needs. Instead, the Administration determined the surplus equipment must be destroyed. Surely, you must be wondering what fatal safety aw was discovered that would prevent reghters from receiving these much-needed federal government hand-me-downs. e simple answer from the Administration is that the surplus equipment did not meet the Environmental Protection Agencys air emissions standards. Clearly, this determination to destroy excess military equipment critical to local reghters ignores the obvious signicant amounts of air pollutants are emitted by out-of-control res. So in a misguided attempt to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, the Administration is instead allowing more pollutants to be released into the air while destroying countless acres of environmentally sensitive land and hundreds of homes and, more importantly, putting the lives of American reghters at greater risk. While it was heartening to see the Administration back-pedal this genius plan at the urging of Senator John McCain, who said we see no justication for government red tape to stand in the way of helping rst responders, I cant ignore how out-of-whack the priorities of the Obama Administration must be to take such action in the rst place. In reinstating the programs they canceled, the Administration felt obliged to create more red tape and implement new requirements on local reghting units. As beneciaries of this second-hand equipment, small-town, volunteer reghters are now required to track and return every item the feds gave away so the equipment can still be destroyed. Nearly 200 re units across Florida have 600 items of federal surplus equipment, such as backhoes, dozers and cargo trucks. Not only will reghters now have to track each piece of equipment and send it back for destruction, departments will be wary to invest in refurbishing this expensive equipment knowing the feds could take back their lease at any moment. To put this in perspective, President Obama recently requested $500 million to train and arm Syrian rebels. Really? Will they be required to meet air emissions standards as well? Hes cutting a check for rebels in Syria, but is unwilling to support American reghters with leftovers unless they follow his ridiculous rules. Fireghters risk their lives to protect other Americans, some even on a volunteer basis. e least the Obama Administration can do is provide surplus federal equipment to support their eorts and protect their lives. Without all the red tape and hassle. Adam Putnam is Floridas Commissioner of Agriculture and oversees the Florida Forest Service.Obamas Policies Put American Fireghters at Risk FARMERS RANCHERS LAND OWNERS BEWARE Below are two pieces on the upcoming rape by the federal EPA of the rights of farmers, ranchers and land owners that in areas like Levy County could become a huge problem if we the people dont act now. First is part of a warning piece by Steve Nelson, President of the Nebraska Farm Bureau Federation who is a farmer. You can read the entire blog at: http://www.kearneyhub.com/ opinions/nationalview/epa-water-rules-bad-for-farmers-ranchers/article_bd29f668-e125-11e39d02-0019bb2963f4.html EPA Water Rules Bad for Farmers and Rancherse administrations latest version of Coming Soon highlights EPAs proposed Waters of the U.S. Rule, a proposal to grant the agency unprecedented authority and control over farmland. Like Murrays Groundhog Day character, agriculture is becoming way too accustomed to a repeating cycle of unfriendly proposals. Few in farm country will forget their plans to prevent children from working on farms, or their initiative to require farmers to get a Commercial Drivers License (CDL) to drive tractors. Nebraskans have also been touched by their eorts to subject grain storage bins to OSHA standards, complying with overzealous fuel storage standards, and the now infamous airplane y-overs of farms and ranches. While there are some doozies in their list of credits, the latest is the most heinous. Under the proposal, any land where water ows, pools, collects, or stands during or after a rainfall event would be considered to be Waters of the U.S. While that sounds harmless, theres a catch. Waters of the U.S. are subject to a multitude of federal Clean Water Act (CWA) regulations, including both EPAs pollutant discharge permit requirements and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers dredge and ll permits. Farmers and ranchers with land that contains any of these water features and most do will nd out quickly that farming practices like applying fertilizer, cutting hay and even building fences would require CWA permits. e real kicker is that EPA has no legal obligation to issue permits to individuals. In simplest terms, EPA would have clear control of what happens on an individuals farm or ranch. Agriculture needs to take notice. While Groundhog Day was a comedy, the administrations land grab is anything but. e agency is investing heavily in trying to create a positive buzz around its blockbuster, touting the rule as good for farmers and pointing to a series of USDA approved agriculture exemptions to the rule. e move has swooned environmental groups and fooled some in farm country. ose whove studied the proposal, however, understand farmers shouldnt need exemptions from normal farm practices that arent subject to regulation in the rst place, something EPA seems to ignore. e next piece is by Kevin Durst, a representative of the National Write Your Congressman group who is beating the drum for us all and is giving us a way to ght back and it is working. But we need to do more. Kevin is a history bu as you will see but more than that, he is trying to motivate us the voters and taxpayers to take charge of our government as we were originally intended to do. Remember government works for us because we give them what we have already worked for. If you dont mind the store, there will be no more store. Kathy Hilliard, Editor He has erected a multitude of oces and sent hither swarms of ocers to harass us and eat out our sustenance. -T. Jeerson, 1776EPA Claims It Has the Power to Garnish Wages Without Court Approvale more I study the founding era of this great country, the more I am amazed again and again of how clearly that generation understood the nature of man and the irresistible tendencies for governments to become more and more tyrannical. Tyrannical even to the point of destroying the very societies that gave rise to that form of government, if there is not a broad division of power and eective checks on that power that are consistently applied. In the Declaration of Independence, Jeerson lists the above complaint against the King as one of the 28 items that dene tyranny, in essence, an overreaching, unchecked bureaucracy. e Founders understood history. ey knew that throughout history, one of the most eective ways to control a population and reduce their freedom to live their lives as they choose was to occupy their time complying with laws and syphon o their prosperity through nancial penalties. Tacitus, the rst century Roman historian said, e more numerous the laws, the more tyrannical the government. We now have close to 200,000 federal regulations on the books, yet the Constitution lists only 3 crimes. continued to page 5A

However, as bad as some of this regulatory enforcement has been over the years, American Citizens that have been on the receiving end of this abuse, have always had the protection, clearly spelled out by the Founders, of the 5th Amendment to the Constitution. is amendment guarantees due process of law before the government can infringe on their unalienable rights of Life, Liberty and Property. If we do not act, that protection will quickly be coming to an end. Our God given rights, declared in the Bill of Rights, have apparently been an inconvenience to the EPA. e EPA now claims, and has published in the Federal Register, the power to garnish wages to satisfy nes levied by the agency on the citizenry. ey claim this right through a Treasury Department regulation. If not enough good citizens object, this power will go into eect 30 days after the expiration of the commenting period. If they can claim the power of wage garnishment, especially by claiming it through a Treasury Department Regulation, what would possibly stop this rogue agency from gaining the other enforcement powers of the IRS, namely bank levies and asset seizures. And if the EPA can seize these powers, how long before the other agencies who have the power to impose nes will want the same power? I ask the contractors out there, How do you feel about OSHA not only coming on to your job site and issuing nes, but then taking those nes directly out of your bank account? How about you truckers out there? e Department of Transportation doesnt have a whole lot of regulations and nes do they? How about anybody that has an employee and deals with the Department of Labor and the EEOC? Yes, this is clearly targeted toward business owners, farmers and ranchers. But if you do business with a local business owner, or you eat food, you will pay the price. ese are your friends, your neighbors and your countrymen. Stand with them. Do I exaggerate? Do my emotions make me tend toward hyperbole? I do not think so. Richard Byrd, Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates made this impassioned plea against the 16th Amendment (Income Tax) being ratied: A hand from Washington will be stretched out and placed upon every mans business; the eye of the Federal inspector will be in every mans counting house . e law will of necessity have inquisitorial features, it will provide penalties, it will create complicated machinery. Under it men will be hailed into courts distant from their homes. Heavy nes imposed by distant and unfamiliar tribunals will constantly menace the tax payer. An army of Federal inspectors, spies and detectives will descend upon the state. He was labeled an extremist. THE GOOD NEWS: ere are 5 freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment. One of the least discussed but as important as free speech, and to worship as we choose, is the right of the people to petition their government for a redress of grievances. e new proposed EPA rule is now in the public comment period. e EPA has said that if it receives enough adverse comments from the people, the regulation will be withdrawn. National Write Your Congressman is a non-partisan organization. Our simple Mission Statement is: To encourage responsible Americans to use their inuence in government to preserve the freedoms set forth by our Founding Fathers. Now is the time to use that inuence.

However, because of public pressure, the deadline for the commenting period has been extended from August 1, 2014 to September 2, 2014. All comments must be received by September 2, 2014. e amount of tyranny you will put up with is the amount of tyranny you will live under. -G. Washington Submitted by: Kevin Durst Representative National Write Your Congressman www.NWYC.com FARMERS RANCHERS LAND OWNERS BEWARE continued from page 4A wants to do. Harris responded that he would suggest the city entertain the concept of levying its own re tax within the city limits. He said he felt commissioners should prepare to replace the county re funding they would lose if the county ever decided to cancel the contract. Its so dicult not knowing where they are coming from, Pomeroy responded. He said he knows the frustration of not knowing what the county plans to do and realizes it is super frustrating for city reghters and their chief. We have to work with the county commission. ey just wont say where theyre coming from, Pomeroy said. Discussion of county re tax funding arose during the city commissions rst major budget workshop of the year. e proposed budget is balanced as of now. County commissioners will meet again in regular session Tuesday and will discuss re funding in a budget workshop after the regular meeting ends.ALS Non-Transport meeting on Aug. 6e county commission has agreed to meet with city ocials and the countys medical directors group at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 6 to discuss Chieands request to be licensed by the county for an Advanced Life Support nontransport truck. e meeting, which is not open to the public, is scheduled to take place at the Levy County Department of Public Safety headquarters seven miles south of Bronson. e medical directors group, which establishes procedures and medical requirements for the countys Emergency Medical Services program will be asked to provide their insights as to whether Chieand should be allowed to operate an ALS non-transport truck. County EMS operates under the medical licenses of the doctors. ere are four doctors in the group and they take turns serving as the county medical director. County commissioners thus far have refused to make any type of commitment to licensing an ALS unit for Chieand Fire Rescue. ey say they want to discuss the proposal with their medical directors and they also want their attorneys in Tallahassee to review the existing ordinance that created special assessment funding for EMS. ey say they are worried that bringing Chieand on board to operate an ALS non-transport could jeopardize their sole source of funding for EMS and they want to make sure that doesnt happen. City commissioners didnt discuss the ALS non-transport issue at the budget workshop Monday, but it is a lingering issue with the city and county and no decision has been made by the county on whether to license Chieand to provide Advanced Life Support.Fire Chief Worried about Future of County Fire Funding for Chieand continued from page 1A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterNearly 60 percent of Levy Countys 25,712 registered voters are ineligible to cast a ballot in the Aug. 26 county commission races thanks to the states partisan party primary system. Only Republicans can vote in those races. Its nothing new. Whats new is that Democrats are no longer the dominant political party in Levy County. ey will be the spectators in the August Republican primary that will narrow the list of county commission candidates. In years past, Republicans were often spectators in the early primaries when only Democrats ran for the county commission and other county oces. e proverbial shoe is on the other foot. Republicans are now the dominant political party in Levy County. For the record, all the Republican county commission candidates on this years August ballot were once Democrats. How times change. e total number of non-Republican voters who cant cast a ballot in the District 2 and District 4 county commission primary is 15,164. e number reects the 10,353 Democrats and 4,811 voters in other parties who cant vote Republican. ose non-Republican voters will have a short list of candidates they can vote for in August. All registered voters can cast ballots for county commission candidates in the Nov. 4 general election. Levy County currently has 10,548 registered Republican voters and 10,353 Democrats. Some Democrats switched to Republican this year to be able to vote in the August Republican primary. Some will switch back to their old party before Nov. 4. Some will remain Republicans. Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones said the partisan primary system is not much dierent than it was back when Democrats were in control of every county oce. She added her oce isnt involved in the decision by candidates to register for a particular party. It has nothing to do with my oce. We dont tell candidates which party they should choose, Jones said. I just hate it when people are disappointed when their candidate is not on the ballot. ere have been attempts in some parts of the state to convert to nonpartisan primaries that would allow everyone to vote regardless of party aliation. Floridas primary system has one caveat that would have allowed anyone to vote in the Republican Levy County Commission races on Aug. 26 regardless of their party status, but it didnt happen this year. In 1998 voters across the state approved a constitutional amendment allowing a universal election when only candidates of the same party are running for oce and there are no outside challengers on the November ballot. Any registered voter regardless of party aliation can cast a ballot in a universal election. But there are outside challengers in this years Levy County Commission races. When Democrat Jamie Grin entered the District 4 race and non-party candidate Robert Studstill entered the District 2 race, state law said the August Republican primary was then limited to Republican voters. District 2 County Commissioner Chad Johnson, a Republican, is being challenged Republican Rock Meeks on Aug. 26. e winner will face Studstill on Nov. 4. District 4 County Commissioner Ryan Bell, a Republican, faces Republican Lilly Rooks on Aug. 26. e winner meets Grin on Nov. 4. On the bright side, non-Republican voters wont have to be spectators in the two county commission races on Nov. 4. ey can vote for the candidate of their choice.Democrats Will Be Spectators in August County Commission Primary
6A Chieand Cattle Rancher Gets High BT Corn Yield on 40-Acre Field By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterField corn has grown on Levy County farms for generations, but the farmers and ranchers of the past might not have believed the height of the corn stalks and the rate of production on a 40-acre eld east of Chieand harvested two weeks ago. Chieand rancher Don Quincey said the stalks of corn on his eld were easily 9 to 10 feet tall and the irrigated eld produced 224 bushels to the acre without being sprayed for insects during the growing season. It was good corn, Quincey said. We grew about 400 acres last year, but we cut it back to 100 acres this time around. Quincey grew bug tolerant (Bt) corn. e corn was genetically modied to make it bug resistant. e bugs dont like to eat the corn, so the corn doesnt have to be sprayed with pesticides. Quincey said he made one light spraying of pesticides and used herbicides. Quincey is also purchasing shelled corn from a grower north of Chieand. Quincey operates a cattle conditioning operation. Over the course of a year he receives about 1,000 to 2,000 cattle at a time and feeds them until they have gained about 90 to 100 pounds before shipping the cattle all over the country. He has purchased or grown 200,000 bushels of shelled corn this year that will be fed to the cattle on his ranch. ey also eat grass on big pastures. e shelled corn was loaded into silage bags for storage. Each bag is as long as a football eld. Quinceys cousin, Pete Watson, was in charge of lling the silage bags. A specially designed machine pushed the corn into the bags. A liquid sweeter was added to give the corn an appealing avor. Murray Tillis and his son Harold combined Quinceys corn. Harold was the combine driver early Sunday. e six-row combine, which belongs to Tillis Farms, clipped the stalks and stripped o the corn kernels as the combine moved along at a speed faster than most people would care to walk. When the corn compartment on top of the combine was full of shelled corn Tillis released the corn into a moving corn hauler as he continued to combine the eld. Murray Tillis has grown an even larger corn eld a few miles down the road on CR 320 that has equally tall corn and appears to have good potential for production given the size of the ears. Quincey said he prefers to harvest corn with 24-34 percent moisture content because it is easier for the cattle to digest. High moisture corn is available only during the harvest. Stored corn isnt as moist. His ranch also produces a handful of fat steers that can be slaughtered at Center Hill Packing near Webster. e fat cattle are kept in a smaller enclosure and fed 65 percent high energy feed, which consists of about 65 percent corn. He said he may expand his fat cattle program. Were not going to have a big feedlot like they do out west, but when we can grow corn and we got a place for killing them, we can do it, Quincey said. A six-row corn combine is full of shelled corn on the Don Quincey farm. A tractor pulling a hauler runs parallel to the combine and waits for the corn to be unloaded without slowing or stopping either vehicle. Harold Tillis is the combine driver. Photo by Terry Witt. Corn is moved by auger to a hauling trailer running in tandem with the combine. The two vehicles never slowed for the transfer of corn. Photo by Terry Witt. Two Teens Arrested for Torturing a Gopher Tortoise Ocers with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) arrested two Clay County teenagers Friday morning on charges of torturing a gopher tortoise. Danielle Susan Dionne, 15, and Jennifer Emoke Greene, 18, have been arrested on charges of felony cruelty to animals, a third-degree felony, and taking, harassing, harming or killing a gopher tortoise, a second-degree misdemeanor. On July 15, the FWC received a tip about the torture and death of a gopher tortoise. FWC and Clay County Sheris Oce investigators immediately followed up on the information. We take these issues very seriously, said Col. Calvin Adams, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We appreciated the help from the public and our partners in working to protect our valuable natural resources. e FWC worked with the State Attorneys Oce of the Fourth Judicial Circuit to decide the appropriate charges related to the crime. We will not tolerate this behavior in the Fourth Judicial Circuit. We are committed to fully prosecuting those responsible for the torture and death of this vulnerable and threatened species, said State Attorney Angela Corey. If convicted, Greene faces up to ve years in prison on the animal cruelty charge. e misdemeanor charge carries a penalty of up to 60 days in jail and/or a $500 ne. Dionnes case will be prosecuted in the juvenile system. Due to this fact, there will be no further comment on her case. e Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) has conrmed a large-scale oshore sh kill in the northeast Gulf of Mexico. Citizens have reported observations of thousands of dead and dying bottomdwelling reef sh, including grouper, hogsh, white grunt, triggersh and snapper, as well as sea turtles and crabs, to the FWCs Fish Kill Hotline. Water quality is poor in the region with several reports of black water. On July 23, FWC Law Enforcement took scientists to collect sh, water samples and water quality data from six locations oshore of Hernando County. Sample analysis conrmed a bloom of the Florida red tide organism, Karenia brevis. Blooms of Karenia brevis in the Gulf of Mexico are naturally occurring and have been documented since the 1700s. Satellite images from the Optical Oceanography Lab at the University of South Florida revealed an extensive surface bloom approximately 80 miles long and up to 50 miles wide in waters 40 to 90 miles oshore between Dixie and Pasco counties. Short-term forecasts of bloom movement by the Center for Prediction of Red Tides do not predict considerable movement of the bloom patch in upcoming days. To report sh kills to the FWC, contact the Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511 or submit a report online at Research.MyFWC.com/FishKill.

Thanks for sharing with us, Portia. This is one of the quilt tops that were on the porch on Monday. Its a string quilt that could become a Crazy Quilt with a lot of embroidery work. Its made of multiple fabrics and could easily be a Crazy Quilt. rfn rfntbbb tnbnr fnnrnt b rf ntbntf tf n Chieand Hires Familiar Face as New City Manager By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterMary Ellzey was hired as the new Chieand city manager Monday and yet she doesnt have a resum and doesnt really need one. Most everyone in Chieand knows her. I dont have a resum, she said Tuesday. If I did, it would say City of Chieand. Shes never worked anywhere else. She began working as a clerk for the city police department in March of 1983 when Oscar Underwood was chief. She transferred to City Hall to work as then City Manager Earl Cannons administrative assistant in 1991. Later her title was changed to deputy city clerk, but it was a formality. She was doing the same job. Some say she has been the unocial city manager for many years. She said she likes being city manager. I enjoy it. I still do the same job. Its been kind of a whirlwind the last two weeks. Im excited about it, very excited. She will be paid $65,000 annually. If she were ever to leave the city, she would be entitled to a month of severance pay. e whirlwind was doing her job as deputy clerk and the interim city managers job. en a tragedy occurred last week when the citys accounting specialist, Carol Allen, died suddenly. Ellzey has promoted Sta Assistant Laura Cain as deputy city clerk, but Cain wont take that position until the city hires her replacement sometime during the next month. Laurie Copeland will remain the citys project and nancial director. She is the grants expert. Ellzey may be the rst female city manager, but she says she hasnt had time to do the research to know if thats actually true. She has heard that a woman served in a similar position, or perhaps the same position years ago. Doing the research on that subject has been very low on Ellzeys list of priorities as she works with Copeland to assemble next years city budget and does the hundreds of other jobs that go with the title of being the citys top administrator. She was a late applicant for the position of city manager. Commissioners were quick to single her out as their top prospect and commissioners didnt spend much time talking about the contract Pomeroy negotiated with Ellzey. Every person from every spectrum is tickled with Mrs. Ellzey being chosen city manager, said Mayor Teal Pomeroy.

On August 8, the day group held their monthly business meeting with 35 members in attendance. Kathy Beaulieu, president, led the meeting. ere were lots of hints and ideas to share at this meeting including show and tell and the patriotic quilt block give-away. During the day meeting, Kathy Beaulieu and Bonnie Grith each won 12 of the blocks and during the night meeting Kim Hart won the other 12 blocks. It will be interesting to see what these ladies make from these beautiful red, white and blue blocks. On August 22, 14 ladies joined with Jenny Whitener to make a quilted tote bag. All of these ladies nished their bags and were thankful to Jenny for helping them make the bags. e nite group has held their meetings each Tuesday night. ey have also had exciting things to make with the most interesting being learning how to make an applique chicken block. Eight ladies joined in this activity while others were working on the beginnings of a block-of-the month applique quilt. e community project for this year is a blanket for use by nursing home residents or children needing a cozy, cuddly warmer. ese will be donated later in the year to dierent organizations. A special thanks to Lancaster Correctional for helping to keep our yard clean and mowed. For additional information on Springhouse Quilters, please call or contact Kathy Beaulieu, 352/486-2223 or Lois Scott, 352/463-2207. Lois Scott, publicity Williston Council Criticized for Eorts to Shut Down Airport Committee continued from page 1A manager was instructed to suspend all meetings. at was a kick in the teeth, Bibby said. He said the suspension lasted until all the terms of oce expired except for Jones. e change in committee operations occurred in 2012 before current City Manager Scott Lippman took over the job. Lippman said the city has been in violation of the ordinance creating the committee since it no longer meets to do business. e ordinance says the city council must maintain an airport committee. On the other hand, Lippman said he doesnt see any need for the committee. He believes he can handle the work that the committee formerly conducted. He said the committee can be reinstituted in the future if the city council wants that to happen. Council President Jason Cason claried the status of the committee. He said the committee wasnt in a suspended status for two years. After meeting with the city manager, he said it was determined the committee would be used on an as needed basis. e city manager didnt feel he needed the committee. Bibby said he will be back for the second reading with more comments. Byrd, who sits as a city council member, voted for the rst reading of the ordinance dissolving the committee. He said he recognizes the politics that resulted in the committee being dissolved, but he is ready to move on and believes Lippman is a capable city manager who rmly believes he can do the job that the committee did for two decades. I think this is a way to put it to death, Byrd said. Byrd said the committee was created when there was nothing but weeds and an airport runway at the Williston Airport. He said the committee worked well with a Florida Department of Transportation ocial and made him a part of the committee. As a result of that relationship, he said the committee was able to bring millions of dollars in grants to the airport. He hopes Lippman will see the value in continuing to cultivate those close ties with DOT. He said the airport over the past 10 years has seen perhaps $10 million in improvements through grants, all started by the airport committee. He said the DOT ocial was able to guide the committee as it began the task of leasing land to private businesses and corporations. He said the ocial told the committee what it could and couldnt do at the airport. e main thing is the airport is a diamond in the rough that could really help the city, Bryd said. What the city is losing by dissolving the airport committee is the institutional knowledge of committee members who brought about the improvements that can be seen at the airport today, according to Byrd. He said the institutional knowledge was invaluable when the city went through a phase where it was changing city managers on a frequent basis. He said the new city managers often were briefed by the committee on what was taking place at the airport because they had no background on airport activities. Byrd said some people thought the committee was overstepping its authority by telling freshly minted city managers what needed to be done and providing them with guidance. Bryd said he sat down with Lippman one day to talk about the committee and Lippman essentially told him he had no interest in continuing the committee. Byrd said he saw no point in belaboring the point. He has the impression that Lippman will do a good job for the city. He is hopeful Lippman can be a good airport manager as well. Hopefully Scott can take the reins and take o with it, Byrd said.

Angel House rift Store is open Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. every weekend. We are located 3 miles N. of Williston on Hwy 27A. e gentle lapping of the waves against our bow seemed to arouse the sleepy dawn. Soon little colorful song birds began to rustle about, calling excitedly from the brush tops along the grassy banks. e cares and hustle of the far o big city seemed to slip eortlessly from my shoulders. I breathed deeply of the tall pines which etched the magnicent shoreline. My thoughts were swaying in harmony with the rhythms of the earth. is was the day that the Lord had made. My soul was at ease. en, without warning, a loud slap echoed across the water. e boat heaved. Get the net! my buddy Derek called, his straining shing rod held high. Another bass had attacked his spinner bait. I gritted my teeth and reluctantly tossed the net, then quickly spun back around to make another angry cast. Id been gracious when hed caught the rst sh, but now, as he reeled in the second, I could only force a smile. ered be no more Mister Nice Guy. Not in my boat. Game on! All that harmony stu is for the birds. Immediately I began to work the trolling motor so I could box Derek out and get to the best holes rst. When he got hung up, I kept on shing like I didnt notice. When he missed a strike, I threw in on top of him to catch his leftovers. I gave him the full treatment. Derek was no stranger to such tantrums of testosterone. He stepped up to throw a counter punch by chiding, How does it feel to be getting whooped in your own boat? Little mind games wont work on me, I grumbled. My next cast sailed high up into the bushes. I just cant help myself. e drive to win was bred into me. For example, take the day I walked out of the dove elds as a kid boasting two more birds than my dad. I was grinning from ear to ear. As we hopped in the truck to leave three birds trailed over the tree line as if on cue. Dad jumped back out and dropped em all. Moms no pushover either. She attempts to memorize the whole scrabble dictionary before I come over to play. ese days there seems to be a lot of passive teaching out there on the subject of winning, and while Ill admit, most of it was probably written because of knuckle heads like me, I still have a hard time believing that having a desire to be victorious and to overcome is a bad thing. I mean, isnt God Himself a champion and a conqueror? ( e LORD is a warrior; the LORD is his name. Exodus 15:3 NIV) Werent we made in His image? Werent we commanded to subdue and have dominion? It only stands to reason that deep down each of us would have a penchant for winning. Did you know this very nation was birthed out of a ght? Yes, one to overcome religious oppression. Our forefathers challenged the unknown seas and the muskets of the red coats in their struggle to forge this great nation they hoped would remain under God. Naturally dark forces have sought to stamp out our freedom at every turn, but God has always raised up brave men and women to conquer the lies, the hatred, and all of evils aggression. eyre still doing it today. Of course, meekness and humility must always play an important role in our lives if we are to properly harness these passions for Gods purposes. Recognizing the real enemy can be a bonus too. (Note to self: Mine is not Derek!) e Lord Jesus not only showed us our enemy, but made a show out of him! (Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15 NKJ) Our real foe is the devil, and his whole crew. As Christians, our job is to enforce Jesus victory on this earth and to spread His Good News until He returns. When He does, I pity the fools who have decided to ride against Him. ats a day the Lord will be packing a sword. See Revelations 19:11-16. But anyway Derek had a ten to nine lead when the dark clouds set in. I oered the use of my spare rain suit, but he declined. (He mightve been a little irritated with me by then.) As he graciously grabbed a paddle to work us back toward the boat ramp the bottom fell out and the poor fellow got plumb drenched. I dont reckon that made him half as mad as me shing the whole way back and catching that last bass at the dock.

The Bull and the JeepOn the Circle C Ranch in Bithalo, Fla., just east of Orange County, we had this old worn out army jeep. It was a ragged piece of junk but we used it to carry our fence tools and wire. One day we had a piece of fence on Highway 423 that needed xin. We had to go through a cypress slough to get to this fence and the water was about two feet deep. When the fence was repaired we started back to the barn. When we got to the slough there was a Brahman bull standing in the middle of it. My partner drove up to the bull and he just stood there and would not move. We hollered at him and he just stood there real cool. I reached in the back of the jeep and picked up a hammer and hit the hood a couple of times. at bull came alive and hit the jeep head-on driving a horn into the radiator. en he turned around with his tail in the air and marched o into the cypress trees. We walked to the barn to get a tractor and pulled our dead jeep home. Moral of the Story: A bull can certainly make a cowboy on wheels one jeep down!
