Suwannee River Fair Starts Thursday with Historic ChangesBy Terry WittSenior Staff Writere Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show and Sale will start ursday in Fanning Springs, but for the rst time in its history spectators will be directed away from areas where animals are penned, walked, groomed or tied up. Visitors to the fair will be able to see the swine, beef, dairy cow, dairy goat, poultry and dog shows as always in the fair barn, as well as the horse show outside, but they will be Chieand Monument to Honor All State Sports ChampionsBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand High School will soon recognize both the girls and boys state sports champions on a brick monument in front of the school. Principal Matthew McLelland said the new lettering should arrive by Friday and the letters will be installed soon after. Bronson Council Approves Variance for Verizon Cell TowerBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town Council members approved a variance to land development regulations Monday allowing construction of a 190-foot Verizon monopole cell phone tower in the town park. e unanimous approval of the variance gives Verizon the green light to apply for a city building permit that will clear the way for construction of the tower by late October. Verizon has promised to pay the town $1,000 per month to lease the park site. e town wants to use the revenue to make improvements to the park. Verizon selected a piece of property in James H. Cobb Park that was already cleared of trees on the northern corner as the cell phone tower site. e property is 80 by 20 feet. Mary Solik, representing Verizon, said the tower will provide enhanced 4G cell phone coverage in Bronson in an era when most people use wireless phones for communication. Birthday Celebration for Charles King is Invitation Only AairLast week the Journal announced that Charles P. King, Chieand realtor and former chairman of the Levy County Democratic Executive Committee, was getting ready to celebrate his 80th birthday on March 7 at a luncheon in Fanning Springs. e birthday luncheon is by invitation only with no gifts, please. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterCounty Attorney Anne Bast Brown, County Economic Director Dave Pieklik and County Planner Shenley Neely were selected Monday by the Levy County Commission to esh out and polish a draft tax abatement ordinance aimed at luring job-producing industries to the county. Commissioners believe the best tool for attracting new business and industry and encouraging existing business to expand is to oer property tax breaks on the improvements they make to their properties in exchange for adding new jobs. Adding jobs could have a ripple eect on the county economy by giving people income to buy housing, pay taxes and spend money, according to Chieand Realtor Doug King and Commission Chairman John Meeks. â€œItâ€™s almost a ripple eect that comes out of job escalation,â€ Meeks said. Commissioners instructed sta to tweak the ordinance in a way that gives the board exibility in oering incentives and at the same times provides the county commission with the ability to oer tax incentives that are competitive with counties of similar size. Commissioners were unanimous in directing sta to develop a â€œsliding scaleâ€ for the tax incentives package. Brown said she was no expert on the subject of a sliding scale and she would have to rely on other sta members to work out those numbers. e commission also wants the tax abatement ordinance to oer consistency across the board so one rm doesnâ€™t receive favorable treatment over another and along the same lines they wanted the ordinance to be equitable so no one could say that they got a bad deal from the county. By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioner Danny Stevens was questioned at least a half dozen times Tuesday in two board meetings about why he didnâ€™t have his microphone lowered to broadcast his voice. A Journal reporter was the rst to ask Stevens why he was the only commissioner to position his microphone straight up instead of pulling it down to make himself heard better. Stevens said he leaves the microphone standing straight up because he likes to see the paperwork on the desk (dais) in front of him. He said he pulls the microphone down when he wants to speak. But Stevens apparently forgot whether the microphone was up or down a half a dozen times in the two meeting. Many people had trouble hearing his voice in the audience when the microphone wasnâ€™t positioned properly. Resident Barney Cannon told Stevens the microphone wasnâ€™t a snake and â€œwonâ€™t bite you.â€ By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County Commissioner Mike Joyner said he is tired of going to gas stations, the Winn Dixie store and Wal-Mart and subjecting his wife, children and grandchildren to oensive music and lyrics being played near their vehicle. On Tuesday, Joyner received the backing of his fellow commissioners, three police chiefs and the sheri in calling for a noise ordinance that can be easily enforced by deputies and puts an end to the abuse of eardrums. â€œIâ€™m not going to suer my children to hear that stu anymore,â€ Joyner said. â€œIâ€™ve had enough of it.â€ County Attorney Anne Bast Brown was instructed by commissioners to research and write an ordinance similar to what Williston uses. e Williston ordinance doesnâ€™t require police ocers to use sound meters to determine if a violation has occurred. Ocers can hear the violation and write a ticket.

Council President Jason Cason said if Debra Jones has been voting on issues that came before the board since last September, but wasnâ€™t ocially a member of the board there could be a problem. â€œIâ€™m sitting here praying and hoping that this can of worms isnâ€™t opened,â€ said Cason. City Manager Scott Lippmann said he would investigate and report back to the council. Council members questioned who in the city was supposed to be keeping track of the terms of advisory board members. City Planner Adam Hall was absent for Tuesdayâ€™s meeting and he often is the person who seems to know the most about advisory board members. e problem of allowing a term to expire on the planning and zoning commission isnâ€™t the bigger issue. e broader problem is that the city is having trouble lling vacant seats on the adjustment board and planning and zoning commission. ere are currently three vacant seats on both seven-member boards. e bottom line is that all four members of each board need to be present for a quorum or the boards canâ€™t conduct business. e planning and zoning commission continued to page 3A

Motorist Makes Fatal Drive into the Gulf of MexicoA motorist from Maine died in the darkness of the Gulf of Mexico on February 28 when he drove o the Yankeetown Boat Ramp into the Gulf. His 2007 Ford Ranger sank, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. e victim was identied as Robert J. Okeefe, 71, of Lamoine, Maine. FHP said Okeefe was traveling west on County Road 40 at 12:15 a.m. approaching the boat ramp when he ran through a stop sign and entered the Gulf of Mexico. e vehicle was submerged for about 3 hours before rescue crews were able to recover the vehicle. e U.S. Coast Guard assisted in conrming the location of the vehicleâ€™s underwater location. e vehicle was recovered with the help of Bronson Lube Tow Company and a dive team from the Citrus County Sheriâ€™s Oce. Levy County Fire Rescue pronounced the driver dead at the scene.Wreck on I-75 Kills Driver and 10-year-old PassengerTwo people died in a crash on I-75 in Marion County on Feb. 28 including a 10-year-old girl who was ejected. e Florida Highway Patrol identied the two victims who died as Pearlie Mae Gibbs, 35, and Jamiya Postell, 10, of Gainesville. Gibbs was driving a 2005 Kia Sorento and Postell was her passenger. A second passenger, Jakera Postell, 18, suered minor injuries. e driver of the second vehicle, Kevin R. Chasteen, 21, Tampa, wasnâ€™t injured in the 2:41 p.m. wreck. FHP said the Gibbs vehicle and the Chasteen vehicle were headed north on I-75. Gibbs was in the center lane and Chasteen was in the left lane. When Gibbs began to move to the left lane occupied by the second vehicle, Chasteen reacted by turning left onto the highway shoulder, causing his vehicle to rotate and strike Gibbâ€™s vehicle. Gibbâ€™s vehicle began to rotate and overturn. Gibbs was taken to Shands Hospital where she later died. e 10-year-old, who wasnâ€™t wearing a seatbelt was ejected from the vehicle. She was pronounced dead at the scene. Joyner Wins Support for Better County Noise Ordinance continued from page 1A and Cedar Key Police Chief Virgil Sandlin endorsed Joynerâ€™s eorts to silence boom boxes, stereos and other noise sources that emit disturbing sound. Joyner, a retired law enforcement ocer, said some of the musical lyrics are disturbing because they degrade women by advocating domestic violence and advocating attacks on police ocers. McCallum said Levy County already has a noise ordinance but he considers it weak in terms of enforcement capability. Noise meters are needed for enforcement. e sheri said he needs an ordinance that can be enforced when his ocers are called to loud parties or to investigate disturbing noise being emitted from homes. Strow said the Williston ordinance was reviewed by State Attorney Bill Cervone before it was adopted by the city council. Cervone said the ordinance was enforceable. Strow said Williston plagiarized an ordinance adopted by Gainesville that doesnâ€™t require sound meters for enforcement. He said if police ocers are 200 to 250 feet from the sound source and they can hear it, the noise violates the ordinance. However, he said he wasnâ€™t sure of the exact distance from the noise source. Joyner said the nal straw for him was being disturbed by loud music after church services Sunday. He said three cars with trunks open were blasting music with disturbing lyrics and irritating sound levels. Juanita P. Terrell, a personal and educational consultant, said churches and church leaders need to be included in the discussion of the noise ordinance. She said she represents some of the churches and can get word to pastors about the noise problem and the proposed ordinance. â€œIf itâ€™s never addressed, it never will be stopped,â€ she said. She said she would support the ordinance. Joyner said the high volume music was also a safety issue. He said people who drive with high music levels in their car canâ€™t hear an ambulance coming up behind them. Commission Chairman John Meeks said whenever someone infringes on another personâ€™s right to enjoy their life, itâ€™s wrong. Commissioner Danny Stevens said he needed clarication on whether the ordinance would deal only with music from radios or if it would regulate other noise. He said he can hear trains on the railroad tracks a quarter mile away from his home. â€œI want to make sure weâ€™re not infringing on peopleâ€™s right to have a business and do business,â€ he said. Douglas said the ordinance should also address situations where noise is emanating from a house 25 feet away and disturbing neighbors. Commissioner Rock Meeks said there will be exemptions to the ordinance and ocers will have some discretion. e ordinance would cover only noise violations in the unincorporated (rural) areas of the county.$25 /year in Levy County $30 /year in Florida $35 /year Outside FloridaSubscribe!
3A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterIt may be winter in most of Levy County, but seven miles west of Chieand spring has broken out at Manatee Springs State Park. Visitors on Saturday were forced to bundle up to protect themselves from a chilly mist that was falling at a 60 degree temperature, but in back of the spring a large cluster of trees was sporting new leaves. Nearby a dogwood tree was in full bloom. e Suwannee River wasnâ€™t ooding, but it was much higher than normal, another indication of spring. A ock of turkey vultures was perched on the rail of the boardwalk along the spring run. ey werenâ€™t hurting anyone. But they made some visitors nervous because of their size and their ugly mug. ey do eat meat. At one point there may have been as many as 25 to 30 vultures on both sides of the rail. One woman was afraid to walk through them for fear of being attacked. But they were more afraid of people than the other way around. e ock was easily shooed away by making a run at them and yelling. But they came back soon after they were driven o the boardwalk rail. One particularly stubborn vulture refused to wiggle as I snapped his photograph. I could have reached out and touched him, but given the size of his beak and the fact that he eats meat that seemed like a bad idea. He looked like a big black chicken with a bad complexion. e vultures are wild birds. Itâ€™s best to leave them alone. A woman by the name of Gwen Duy was directly behind me. She was scared of the vulture. I told her the bird was harmless as I continued to snap photos of the creatures and walk among them. Duyâ€™s male companion came along and shooed the birds away. But they ew back to the railing. ey were becoming pests. I have never seen the vultures congregate on the boardwalk like they did Saturday. e water at the mouth of the spring run was clouded by the river. It didnâ€™t appear any manatees were present, but manatees can often be seen in the spring when air temperatures drop. Manatees are warm-blooded. ey are mammals and feed their young breast milk like humans. ey can become hypothermic and develop pneumonia if subjected to cold water for extended periods. ey are frequently seen in the spring run of Manatee Springs State Park during the colder winter months. Two snorkel divers were in the spring run closer to the picnic area. ey said the water was much warmer than the air, which was true. e spring run remains at a constant 72 degrees. Manatee Springs State Park is one of the stateâ€™s natural wonders and it is worth visiting. I purchased an individual season pass for $64 while I was there. e pass gives me the right to visit nearly every state park in Florida for the next year. ere are a couple of state parks where a pass holder would have to pay a small fee. One of those parks is in Citrus County. Homosassa State Park is home to captive manatees and other creatures. e critters have to be fed. e added fee pays for maintenance of the animals.Manatee Springs State Park Begins Its Spring Bloom Gwen Duy of Chieand holds an alligator gar her friend caught o the dock at Manatee Springs State Park. She said the gar is good eating. She llets the meat o the top of the back and fries them in salt and pepper meal. She said it tastes great. Photo by Terry Witt. This turkey vulture was standing on the Manatee Springs boardwalk near the Suwannee River with about 20 buddies, His imposing features are misleading. The bird was not interested in attacking anyone. But the presence of so many vultures on the boardwalk rail made some visitors nervous. Photo by Terry Witt.

McLelland said the school ordered lettering last November to honor the 1961 and 1997 state football champions and the 2014 state softball champions on the same monument, but it has taken quite a while for the materials to arrive. He said funding from ticket sales at CHS athletic events will pay for the $1,000 change in lettering. e top of the monument will say Home of the Indians, State Champions. He said there will be images of two miniature footballs for each of the state champion football teams and the image of a softball for the softball team. e Lady Indian softball team is hoping to repeat as state champions this year or perhaps next season. McLelland said school ocials decided to use all new lettering rather than using the new stu next to old. It made good sense to do it that way and the thought was that it would look better. He said no one person was the inspiration for adding the 2014 state championship softball team to the monument. He said discussions were focused on honoring all the state champions, past and future. â€œOur goal is to continue winning state championships, so we wanted something that would honor that tradition,â€ McLelland said.Chieand Monument to Honor All State Sports Champions continued from page 1A

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateRandom thoughts on the passing scene: When President Obama keeps talking about â€œviolent extremistsâ€ in the abstract, you might wonder whether Presbyterians are running amok. e mainstream media seem desperate to try to nd something to undermine Republican governor Scott Walkerâ€™s rise in the polls. e worst they have come up with is that he didnâ€™t nish college. Neither did Bill Gates or Michael Dell. e Wright brothers didnâ€™t nish high school. Neither did Abraham Lincoln or George Washington. Have you noticed that there seem to be an ever growing number of things that we are not supposed to say in public? Given the Obama administrationâ€™s repeatedly failed policies in the Middle East and the lost credibility of the presidentâ€™s glib pronouncements, Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahuâ€™s address to Congress may be many Americansâ€™ rst chance to get a realistic assessment of the Middle East situation and its potential for international catastrophe. Attempts to bring order out of the chaos in the paper jungle of my oce usually get nowhere until I nally break everything down into just two categories: (1) urgently needed and (2) trash to be thrown out. It is going to take time to secure the border, and it ought to take time for Congress to explore the facts about immigrants from dierent countries before voting on new immigration legislation. Both processes can be going on at the same time. But those who want border security laws and immigration laws passed together -- â€œcomprehensive immigration reformâ€ -are for denying us that time. Why? State Department ocial Marie Harf said, â€œWe cannot win this war by killing themâ€ but instead we need to get to the â€œroot causesâ€ of jihads by providing â€œjob opportunities.â€ We tried getting at the â€œroot causesâ€ of crime back in the 1960s -and crime rates skyrocketed. But we stopped the Nazis in World War II by killing them, instead of setting up a jobs program in Germany. e old advertising slogan, â€œWhat happens in Vegas stays in Vegasâ€ may or may not have been true. But surely the West should know by now that what happens in the Middle East does not stay in the Middle East. rowing Israel to the wolves and signing agreements with Iran will not buy â€œpeace in our timeâ€ and allow us to further shrink the military and expand the welfare state. Academics often defend tenure, despite its many negative consequences, on grounds that it allows academic freedom for independent minds. Yet there are few places in America with more taboos and intellectual intolerance than academic campuses. e young are indoctrinated with demographic â€œdiversityâ€ that contrasts with a squelching of diversity of ideas on social issues. It is remarkable how the Internal Revenue Service has been â€œlosingâ€ e-mails that Congressional investigators want to see and how â€œglobal warmingâ€ researchers have been â€œlosingâ€ the raw data on which their dire predictions have been based. In the social sciences, people just frankly refuse to allow their raw data to be seen by critics of such sacred cow policies as armative action. e radical feminist movement, so ready to go ballistic at any little remark that can be twisted to mean something oensive to women, has been strangely silent while ISIS has been raping women and even little girls wholesale, and selling them as sex slaves. Is the silence of the radical feminists just political expediency or moral bankruptcy? Or both? Secretary of State John Kerry says that there is less violence than usual in the world right now. Meanwhile the Director of National Intelligence, James Clapper, says the opposite, that terrorism is more violent and dangerous than ever. Since Clapper is Director of National Intelligence, maybe Kerry should have the title Director of National Stupidity. We should never again put a rst-term Senator in the White House. But, of the three Republican rst-term Senators who are prospective candidates for the 2016 nomination for president, Marco Rubio is one of the very few politicians of either party to publicly admit that he was wrong on a major issue -immigration. He may well be ready for the White House in 2020. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305. His website is www.tsowell.com.

COPYRIGHT 2015 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators Syndicatee Department of Homeland Security refuses to release a report on â€œright-wingâ€ terrorism that somehow found its way into CNNâ€™s hands last week during the farcical White House summit on Donâ€™t Say Islamic Extremism. Your tax dollars are once again hard at work -defaming conservatives, deecting from worldwide murderous jihad and denying the public access to information they funded. CNN splashed the big scoop on its website: â€œDHS intelligence report warns of domestic right-wing terror threat.â€ e fear-mongering piece featured a huge map of 24 alleged acts of â€œviolence by sovereign citizen extremists since 2010.â€ CNNâ€™s Evan Perez and Wes Bruer prominently quoted Mark Potok of the widely disgraced propaganda outt the Southern Poverty Law Center. Potok claimed that â€œthere are as many as 300,000 people involved in some way with sovereign citizen extremism.â€ is is the same SPLC that was forced to apologize to famed neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson just last week for categorizing him as an â€œextremistâ€ because he supports the traditional denition of marriage. is is the same hate-instigating SPLC whose target map and list of social conservative groups were used by leftwing domestic terrorist Floyd Lee Corkins to shoot up the Washington, D.C., oce of the Family Research Council in 2012. is is the same SPLC whose explicit aim, according to Potok, is to â€œdestroyâ€ its political opponents and which admits it is â€œnot really set up to cover the extreme left.â€ Harperâ€™s Magazineâ€™s Ken Silverstein called the SPLC and its work â€œessentially a fraudâ€ that â€œshuts down debate, sties free speech, and most of all, raises a pile of money, very little of which is used on behalf of poor people.â€ None of these facts was mentioned in CNNâ€™s report promoting the threat of â€œright-wingâ€ terrorism. So you can see why I was curious to know more about the â€œ24 violent sovereign citizen-related attacksâ€ the cable network kept citing without specics. I asked both CNN and DHS for a copy of the assessment. CNNâ€™s Bruer brusquely told me on Twitter: â€œNot public doc. But not new that govâ€™t lists sov. citizens as terror threat.â€ Sure, itâ€™s â€œnot new.â€ But CNNâ€™s report was new (and conveniently timed to coincide with the White House agenda of talking about every other kind of terrorism besides jihad). I wanted to read the new document, not just what CNN and the SPLC want the public to know and think about it. Liberal media outlets have a bad habit of purposely misclassifying terrorist incidents as â€œright-wing.â€ Last April, both CNN and MSNBCâ€™s Rachel Maddow joined with the SPLC to foment fear of conservative Americans by claiming that â€œright-wingersâ€ have killed 34 people since 9/11 for â€œpolitical reasons,â€ while jihadists have killed 21. But a closer look at the rigging of that phony factoid simply conrms the malevolent intention of so-called objective journalists and â€œhate watchâ€ groups to marginalize conservative political speech and dissent. e CNN/ MSNBC/SPLC smear job involved both the dishonest deating of left-wing and jihadist incidents, and the dishonest inating of â€œright-wingâ€ incidents. First, carving out the 3,000-person death toll from the 9/11 jihadist attacks is a rather convenient way to rig the scales, isnâ€™t it? So is omitting the 10-person death toll from the jihad-inspired Beltway sniper spree of 2002. e conservatives-are-worse-than-jihadists casualty data counted Holocaust Memorial Museum shooter James Von Brunn, who killed a heroic security guard, as a â€œrightwinger.â€ But Von Brunn was neither â€œleftâ€ nor â€œright.â€ He was a rage-lled maniac and 9/11 truther who hated Fox News, the Weekly Standard and Rupert Murdoch. Also counted as â€œright-wingâ€ in the CNN/MSNBC/SPLC data: Andrew Joseph Stack. Heâ€™s the lunatic who ew a small plane into an Austin, Texas, oce complex that contained an Internal Revenue Service oce in 2010. Stackâ€™s ranting suicide manifesto targeted George W. Bush, health care insurers, the pharmaceutical industry and the â€œcapitalist creed.â€ Also listed as â€œright-wing:â€ Richard Andrew Poplawski. He was the disgruntled, unemployed loser who shot and killed three Pittsburgh police ocers in a horrifying bloodbath in 2009. Left-wing publications asserted that the â€œheated, apocalyptic rhetoric of the anti-Obama forces,â€ along with Fox News and Glenn Beck, motivated Poplawski to slay the ocers. But Poplawski was a dropout from the Marines who threw a food tray at a drill instructor, had beaten his girlfriend, and demonstrated violent, racist tendencies that had nothing to do with politics. Poplawski was outraged that his mother wanted to kick his unemployed ass out of the house. Joshua Cartwright, another serial woman abuser, also murdered two police ocers in the aftermath of a domestic violence call. Left-wing operatives focused on a single remark from Cartwrightâ€™s victim about his views on President Obama to paint him as a â€œright-wing radical,â€ whitewashing his long history of violence against his partner and senseless paranoia. Were any of these falsely classied incidents included in the DHS assessment hyped by CNN and SPLC last week? Weâ€™ll never know. When I asked DHS public aairs ocer S.Y. Lee for the document, he told me itâ€™s â€œnot for public releaseâ€ because itâ€™s â€œan FOUO document (for ocial use only). Same as many DHS products to law enforcement.â€ I asked whether CNN now qualies as â€œlaw enforcement.â€ No response.

COPYRIGHT 2015 CREATORS.COM Random Thoughts CNN, DHS and SPLCâ€™s Blame-Righty Hit JobTeachers Union Dues Fund a Political PowerhouseBy Evan Grossman | Watchdog.orgRichard Coppock has taught in the Bethlehem School District in Pennsylvania for 24 years, but left the local union in 2001 over what he calls â€œphilosophical dierences.â€ In his mind, the union too often makes politics its top priority. â€œI became a teacher to teach kids and hopefully make a dierence in their lives,â€ Coppock said. â€œIf I wanted to be a political activist I would have chosen another profession.â€ Whether they support the unionâ€™s political agenda or not, millions of other teachers across the country helped to fund the National Education Associationâ€™s powerful political machine last year. According to forms led with the U.S. Department of Labor, NEA sank $9.8 million into the NEA Advocacy Fund, a super PAC that can funnel member dues toward political interests. While dues that teachers unions collect from members â€” sometimes as much as $1,000 per year â€” cannot be used to fund a political action committee, or PAC, a super PAC is more loosely regulated and can be funded by dues. Super PAC money canâ€™t be spent on an individual candidate, per se, but it can be spent on media that inuences the outcome of an election. NEA did not respond to multiple inquiries about its super PAC, which last year sent more than $6 million to Waterfront Strategies, a media and political advertising agency in Washington, D.C., known to be a favorite among Democrats from the White House on down. Part of Waterfrontâ€™s services include creating attack ads that shape elections around the country, something not all union members may support. In all, the NEA Advocacy Fund made almost $10 million in contributions to committees and national parties last year, according to OpenSecrets.org, the majority of it going to Waterfront, which was also a top destination for American continued on page 5A

Every year, teachers unions direct millions of dollars to power one of the countryâ€™s most powerful political engines. ose expenditures do not always directly fund education policy. Instead, they are used to prop up political and ideological groups, too. According to DOL records, the New York City branch of the AFT spent $29.1 million on representational activities, political activities and lobbying in 2014. Included in that was a $25,000 payment to the National Action Network, a partisan organization that claims to support education, among other social issues. But of the 160 press releases NAN published since the beginning of 2014 trumpeting its advocacy wins across the country, only one had to do with education. NEA also made more than $26 million in contributions to progressive organizations during the 2014 election cycle, including $334,500 to America Votes, $235,000 to the Progressive States Network, and $150,000 to the Center for American Progress, according to the watchdog group Free to Teach. â€œForcing teachers to pay union dues or fees simply for the privilege of having a job in the public schools is a clear violation of First Amendment rights,â€ said Alexandra Freeze, senior director of communications and advocacy for the Association of American Educators, a national, non-union professional organization that works to represent teachers and educational advocacy. â€œUnion dues pay for everything from bloated union boss salaries to political mailers,â€ she said. â€œe fact that teachers in certain states are required to bankroll this activity is at out un-American.â€ Teachers and their unions have splintered over the years and their political aliations may be a reason for some defections. For the second straight year, there are more non-unionized teachers working in American schools than there are unionized members. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as cited by Unionstats.com and the Education Intelligence Agency blog, only 49 percent of the 4,535,249 teachers working in 2014 were full-share union members. Just 10 percent of new teachers last year joined unions, furthering a growing trend. In 1983, the unionization rate was almost 60 percent, according to labor statistics. e AAE found in its 2015 member survey that 97 percent of its members support public charter schools, 94 percent support course choice for students, and 56 percent support Empowerment Scholarship Accounts â€” all issues to which teachers unions are fundamentally opposed. Coppock insists he is not a â€œunion busterâ€ and while he shuns the politicking of the NEA and its local aliates, the Bethlehem Education Association and the Pennsylvania Education Association, he is a member of the Keystone Teachers Association, which was organized in 1993 by teachers whose personal beliefs conicted with that of unions. â€œAs the NEA and AFT increase their political involvement, they push these views and agendas onto their members and a strong argument could be made that their increased pressure is a deterrent among their members and the need for teachers to want to disassociate themselves from that part of the unionâ€™s activities, and essentially, the unions completely,â€ KEYTA Executive Director Carol Yeagy said. â€œWe hear quite regularly that educators really just want to be supported in their teaching capacities and want to be left alone with regard to politics.â€ Evan Grossman is a Philadelphia-based education reporter for Watchdog.org.

Teachers Union Dues Fund a Political Powerhouse continued from page 64A Wesley, John, Mike and Debbie Candidate Interviews for Town of Bronson Special Election March 10 Bronson Candidate Katie Parks Bogart Ready to Go to WorkBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town Council candidate Katie Parks Bogart said Tuesday she will be a motivated and extremely hard working member of the council representing the interests of all citizens. Bogart, a surgical technician who spent 16 years in the U.S. Air Force, lives in Bronson with her husband and three daughters and has worked at Shands Hospital in Gainesville since 2012. She graduated from Bronson High School in 1996 and enlisted in the Air Force as soon as she turned 18. She said the military opened her eyes about the world that she never saw as a small town girl. Her rst assignment was in San Francisco. After leaving the military in 2000 Bogart worked at Alachua General Hospital in Gainesville until 2007 and then worked for Cardiac Surgeons at Florida Hospital in Orlando from 2007-2012. She said she came back to Bronson because she loves the town where she was raised. She wants to raise her three daughters in the same small town atmosphere. When she heard Councilman Berlon Weeks had resigned, Bogart said her rst thought was taking Weeksâ€™ place on the council would provide her with an opportunity for public service. She likes to help people. She also wants to express her views on public issues. â€œBut I donâ€™t think you can voice your opinion if you arenâ€™t ready to get down and work,â€ she said. Bogart said she wants to see more organization in the townâ€™s operations and she wants to get the people of Bronson more involved in expressing what they want done in the town. â€œI want to hear what they want. I think everyone on the council wants to hear what they want,â€ she said. e military helped her develop as a person, she said. She learned how to address people, how to speak to people and she learned to honor chain of command. She said she would bring those skills to the council. â€œI already had pride in where I grew up. I have pride in Bronson, but I want it to be the best Bronson possible and I can help.â€ Bogart has been attending council meetings since she rst applied for the job. e council rst attempted to appoint someone to the position vacated by Weeks, but deadlocked on every vote. e council then decided to let the voters decide who would replace Weeks. Attending council meetings has given her background on how the budget is developed, about progress on the current sewer project and about dierent festivals the town is interested in developing, she said. But she said she also wants to see diversity on the council. â€œI think there needs to be a diverse group on the council, from all walks of life,â€ she added. Bronson Candidate Jerry Mongo Brings Wealth of ExperienceBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBronson Town council candidate Jerry Mongo is retired from a 30-year postal career at the University of Florida and from a 14-year career as a facilities operations manager at CH2M Hill, an engineering rm in Gainesville, and says he thinks his experiences in the workforce can be an asset to the town. â€œWhat I bring is experience in listening, knowing a lot of what the issues are and listening to the people in the community,â€ Mongo said. â€œIâ€™ve lived here most of my life. I know whatâ€™s going in in the community.â€ Mongo, who was born and raised in Bronson and has a daughter, four grandchildren and one great grandchild, gured that after he retired from his second career in December, a week after his wife retired, he would relax, sh and enjoy his free time. But he said it hasnâ€™t exactly worked out the way he planned. Since retiring, Mongo said he hasnâ€™t done one thing he planned to do and has yet to go shing. He said people he knows have prevailed upon him to use his time in serving as a volunteer in the community in various ways. He enjoys the volunteerism. He said he knows all four members of the current council and is hoping those contacts will be helpful if he wins the oce. â€œI know all the council members. I might be able to bring some cohesiveness,â€ he said. He was a postal manager at UF managing 20 employees. His oce had its own zip code. He said he functioned much like a postmaster in a small community. One issue he would like to address in Bronson is the lack of sidewalks. He lives on Pine Street. e town council voted Monday night to pave the street from U.S. 27A to School Street. He said too many people are being forced to walk on the street for lack of a sidewalk. â€œIâ€™m concerned about it as a safety issue. One day someone may get hurt,â€ he said. Eventually Mongo said he would like to see the city extend its central sewer system into additional residential areas. e townâ€™s current sewer project is primarily aimed at the business district in hopes of spurring job growth. Mongo said a second goal is to bring more businesses into the town. He said Bronson is a great little town, but he would prefer to see more economic growth. Mongo noted that he is involved in a lot of community services, which he enjoys doing, but he also wants to be involved in public service as a Bronson Town Council member. He is a regular at town council meetings soaking up the issues and waiting to speak to council members when they leave the council chambers, demonstrating his interest in the townâ€™s government. Due to a deadlock at the Bronson Town Council meeting in December 2014, the original special election to vote on amendments to the town charter and to vote in a council person for Seat 2 was moved to March 10. e council opted to let Bronson voters decide on who would replace former councilman Berlon Weeks who left due to his increasing work schedule. e successful candidate will have to run again later in the year to win a seat on the council in the regular September election. e successful candidate in the March special election must qualify in July for the September run. e council originally had planned a Feb. 10 special election to vote on amendments to the town charter but the need for a council member necessitated another inclusion on the ballot. e charter amendments and the names of candidates for the vacant council seat will be on the ballot. Make your voice heard on ve proposed charter amendments and choose a new council member on March 10 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.Bronson Holds Special Election Mar. 10

Asked by a resident to list other advantages in having the tower in Bronson, Solik said 70 percent of all 911 emergency calls are made from wireless handsets. She said a tower in Bronson means improved security. Verizon will maintain the tower once a month and Solik said the tower will be constructed to meet the wind load requirements of the town. â€œOnce they are built they are one of the safest structures,â€ she said. Asked by a reporter if the towerâ€™s close proximity to Gainesville and the University of Florida might result in the towerâ€™s capacity being exhausted at a rapid pace, Solik said the future towerâ€™s signal wonâ€™t reach Gainesville. She said cell phone towers are built to interconnect with neighboring tower signals, but she said Gainesville users wonâ€™t be tapping into the tower in Bronson. Town Clerk Kelli Brettel said town sta members are looking forward to construction of the tower because their oce computers are using a 3G wireless system. She said 4G will work much better for the town. Four Day Work Week? In other business, the council instructed Brettel to research and report back to the council on the possibility of establishing a four-day work week for the townâ€™s employees. Under that scenario, employees would work four 10-hour days and have Friday o. Chieand operates on a four-day work week. New Job Description Public Works Director e council approved the revised job description for the public works director. e job description was reworked following the resignation of former Public Works Director Jimmy Dunford, who moved into a job in the private sector. Council members have yet to advertise for his replacement. Under the new job description, the public works director would organize, direct and integrate the townâ€™s public works and utilities activities and provide professional advice to the town council and sta in such areas as engineering, municipal water, wastewater collection, storm water drainage, solid waste and street and landscape maintenance. e public works director would monitor all capital construction projects, supervise public works employees and be responsible for the maintenance, installation and repair of all water lines, meters, re hydrants and riserâ€™s throughout the town. e position is also responsible for maintenance and repairs to sewer lines, sewer lift stations and the sewer plant and must oversee work completed by outside contractors on any water or sewer equipment. e director must also maintain records and ensure all â€œdig requestsâ€ are marked for both the town and outside contractors. In addition, the director would maintain and repair roads throughout town including pothole repairs and sign maintenance and repair, ensure the townâ€™s right-of-ways are kept free of debris, work with the Florida Department of Transportation on any problems associated with U.S. 27A or State Road 24 and confer with the town clerk or town attorney when necessary to correct a violation. e director would be responsible for maintenance and repair of town equipment including but not limited to trucks, tractors, backhoe, mowers and lawn equipment, and must do the repairs when possible rather than sending repair jobs to a third party. e list of responsibilities goes on for another two pages. Pine Street Sidewalk Council members instructed Development Department Director Bob Nienegger to prepare plans and bid requests for construction of a sidewalk from U.S. 27A to School Street. Council member Bruce Greenlee had asked to delay the project until the sewer project was completed. Councilwoman Beatrice Roberts pressed for action on building the sidewalk. Greenlee agreed. e council voted 4-0 to instruct Nienegger to proceed with planning and bidding the project.Bronson Council Approves Variance for Verizon Cell Tower continued from page 1A Verizon representative Mary Solik addresses Bronson Town Council members about a variance to build a cell down in James H. Cobb Park. Photo by Terry Witt.Brown and County Coordinator Freddie Moody said there probably should be an application fee charged to recover costs associated with sta doing research, but a Journal reporter asked if sta costs should be added to the application fee since the sta is already being paid with taxpayer dollars. Commissioner Danny Stevens responded that there may be instances when the county must hire experts from outside the county to deal with an application, and he believes those costs should be added to the application fee. e preliminary draft ordinance manufactured by Brown with help from Pieklik outlines a set of tax incentives. e ordinance borrows from other counties that have tax abatement programs and cites state statute. For expanding businesses in the county, it says a business adding 10 or more new full-time jobs could be given a property tax exemption of up to 100 percent if the business is engaged in manufacturing, processing, compounding, fabricating â€œor producing for sale items of tangible personal property at a xed location and which comprises an industrial or manufacturing plant.â€ e language is complex and not easily understood. e draft ordinance also says a business establishing 25 or more new jobs and employing 25 or more full-time employees in the county would be eligible for a tax exemption, but the language mentions a â€œsales factorâ€ that is to be considered in determining eligibility. e ordinance doesnâ€™t say what is meant by a sales factor and Brown said she doesnâ€™t have the economic expertise to interpret the meaning of the term. e tax exemptions wouldnâ€™t apply to the existing value of the property, according to Brown. She said state statute allows the county to provide exemptions for improvements to real property and tangible property. e county commission is empowered to determine how much relief is granted Brown said a new ordinance must be adopted for every rm that receives tax incentives from the county commission. e tax abatement can last for a maximum of 10 years. County Coordinator Freddie Moody said the county commission in past years granted tax incentives to businesses, but used a dierent format. He produced minutes from a March 16, 2003 meeting of the board saying that the Economic Development Authority had reviewed the Ken Boyer application for tax abatement and recommended approval of six months of tax incentives amounting to $500. He said the decision shows the tax relief can be exible depending on the size of the business and what type of incentives the business needs. e EDA no longer exists. e EDA has been replaced by the Nature Coast Business Development Council, which until now has not had property tax incentives to work with at the county level. Pieklik said tax incentives are a critical tool the county can use to attract new businesses and industry. He said it is also important for cities to oer their own tax incentive packages. He said the county would then have incentives countywide to attract job-producing companies. Stevens said he wants the ordinance to be exible enough to structure tax relief to reect what types of jobs are being brought in. He suggested high wage jobs might be worth more than hotel jobs, for example, since hotel jobs wouldnâ€™t pay as well. Meeks noted that he has received information that the Florida Legislature intends to abolish state enterprise zones in Floridaâ€™s 67 counties. ere are a many enterprise zones in Levy County that oer incentives to businesses. Meeks said the legislature plans to replace the state enterprise zones with a dierent mechanism that oers counties the ability to form their own enterprise zones, but he said the proposal wonâ€™t work in Levy County. He said the tax abatement ordinance is Levy Countyâ€™s best hope and he doesnâ€™t want to delay adoption of the ordinance any longer than is necessary. Brown noted that the stateâ€™s March 1 deadline for applying for property tax exemptions has already passed. However, Randy Rutter of the property appraiserâ€™s oce said businesses being built this year wonâ€™t be on the tax roll until the following year. With Brownâ€™s announcement that the March 1 deadline had passed, there had been concern that the Suwannee River Community Hospital might not be able to tap into tax incentives. But the hospital wonâ€™t be completed until the nal quarter of 2016 and the owners should have time to apply for property tax incentives.County Commission Wants Tweaks in Tax Abatement Ordinance for Quick Approval ontinued from page 1Ae county commission spent more than $57,000 remodeling the commission meeting room. New microphones and ceiling speakers were added to broadcast their voices into the audience. e microphones and speakers vastly raise sound levels in the meeting room when used properly. Stevens has been the most reluctant to use the new microphone directly in front of him. His voice is often dicult to understand on the ocial recordings of county commission meetings. When the microphones were rst installed he refused to use his microphone, leaving it standing straight up for entire meetings. Some in the audience complained that his voice was dicult to hear Tuesday without the microphone positioned properly. Commissioner Mike Joyner came to Stevensâ€™ rescue. â€œDo like me and just leave it turned o,â€ Joyner said. Asked later if he actually turns o his microphone during commission meetings, Joyner said he was just joking. He said his microphone is always turned on. Stevensâ€™ microphone is also turned on, but frequently he doesnâ€™t speak into the microphone, leaving audience members to wonder what he is saying.Commissioner Takes Heat for Failing to Use Microphone continued from page 1A Williston Unsure If Expired Term Will Cause Problems continued from page 1Asometimes functions with four members, including Jones.sometimes functions with four members, including Jones. e council hasnâ€™t found a good way of recruiting people to serve on the cityâ€™s most important advisory boards. Cason said the city may literally have to go door to door to nd people to serve. Councilman Cal Byrd, who is retiring after his term expires in April, said the city canâ€™t even give away the positions on the two boards. He wondered why the city retains seven-member boards when it canâ€™t ll all the positions. Byrd said the city discussed reducing the boards to ve members, which would decrease the number needed for a quorum. Cason said reducing the size of the boards would create another problem on the planning and zoning commission because Debra Jones and her daughter are two members of the board. It would mean two members of the same family could control decisions if there were only three members present on a given night. e diculty of nding volunteers for the advisory boards is nothing new. e council has discussed the problem previously. e boards are voluntary. ose who serve on them are providing a public service to the City of Williston. In other business, Lippmann said the Police and Fire Building is about seven to 10 days away from completion. He said the re and police departments have moved back into their respective ends of the building. e city hired Ramjack Corporation to install columns to stabilize the building after ocials noticed the building was shifting and beginning to sink on one end. Engineers never found a sinkhole beneath the building but did nd settling in many locations, and particularly on the southwest corner, which caused the concrete oor to sink and crack, steel support columns to bend and twist and windows to break. Ramjack installed hundreds of support columns throughout the interior and exterior of the building to stabilize the foundation of the building. A new concrete oor was poured in the re bay along with horizontal stabilizers that can take the weight of re engines lled with water. e police and re departments are planning an open house when the project is completely nished. In a nal note, the council recognized James Norman, Jr., the man who risked his life to save a neighbor when he saw the manâ€™s clothing had caught re in February. Norman risked his personal safety to put out the re on the victimâ€™s clothing and then called 911 to summon an ambulance to the scene. â€œWe are grateful you were there and acted so quickly,â€ said Mayor Gerald Hethcoat in presenting James with a plaque for his heroic actions.

Suwannee River Hospital to Take Patients by Late 2016By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterConstruction of the 28-bed Suwannee River Community Hospital in Chieand is expected to start in the fall and be nished by the last quarter of 2016, Ameris Health Senior Vice President Franklin Schupp said Monday. Schupp and Mike Belue of CBC Real Estate, the company putting together the nance package for the project visited with Chieand ocials last week to conrm the timeline for designing and building the project behind Wal-Mart. â€œWeâ€™re looking at starting to take patients by the last quarter of next year,â€ Schupp said. Ameris Health is co-developing the hospital with Neuterra Health. e hospital will have 28 private beds with 14 on each wing. ere is room for expansion on the 20-acre site. Ameris Health has been given a Florida Certicate of Need by the Agency for Health Care Administration to construct the hospital in Chieand. One of the key features in the hospital that will be of interest to residents in Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie County is the 24-hour emergency room. Residents believe many critically ill or critically injured patients die on the long drive or ight to Gainesville hospitals. e timeline calls for the developer to conduct a site survey and make soil borings this month to be followed a month later by submission of preliminary plans to the Agency for Health Care Administration. By October the timeline shows contractor bidding and nal review of construction plans by the Agency for Health Care Administration to be followed by site clearing and the start of construction.Suwannee River Fair Events & Show Scheduledirected to avoid areas where they could be injured by contact with animals. â€œI know weâ€™re going to have some trac in those (o limits) areas,â€ Smith said. â€œWe canâ€™t police them 100 percent. We hope to limit the confusion.â€ e new rules are intended to reduce the possibility of liability lawsuits. Fairgoers were advised by the media more than a month ago that changes to the fair were coming and not everyone would be happy with the new arrangements. â€œChange is inevitable, and often unpleasant,â€ Smith said. â€œe circumstances are beyond the control of the Fair Association. e bottom line is safety. Livestock is unpredictable and therefore, to assure the safety of spectators, separate areas have been designated for livestock and spectators.â€ Smith said the fair must be insurable if it is to survive. e current insurance climate is focused on risk. e current setup exposes the fair to too much risk and liability. Wristbands will be issued to exhibitors. ey can move about freely in areas o limits to spectators. e fair begins ursday with the registration of small animals like chickens and rabbits. e dog show starts at 6 p.m. On Friday the heifers, dairy cows and goats arrive. e rabbit and poultry shows take place on Friday. On Saturday, the horse show, dairy cow and dairy goat shows take place. e second phase of the fair begins on Friday, March 13th with the registration of the fat and feeder steers. e swine arrive Saturday. e homegrown steer show is Saturday.Suwannee River Fair Starts Thursday with Historic Changes continued from page 1A
By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterBronsonâ€™s varsity baseball team was defeated 14-4 by Hilliard Friday night on one of the coldest nights of a chilly winter season thus far. e nger-numbing cold was coupled by a strong northerly wind that drove fans under blankets or closer to the comfort of portable heaters. e Eagles trailed the Flashes 4-1 by the bottom of the rst but closed the gap to 4-3 only to fall behind because of ineld errors and missed opportunities at the plate. Bronson was 2-3 after the loss. Senior Ty Barber was the exception to the rule, with Barber going four to four at the plate, with two RBIs and a run scored. Wayne Shipp was 1-2 with two walks, 2 runs and 1 RBI. Scott White was 1-2 with a walk. David Dees was 1-4, Donny Clifton 1-3, Tyler Sullivan 1-4 and Cole Crain 1-4. Dustin Landgraver was relieved on the mound by Donny Clifton. e Eagles loaded the bases once and had runners in scoring position several times on second and third but could not bring home the run. â€œWe didnâ€™t play well. We didnâ€™t play well enough to win-too many mental mistakes, too many physical mistakes,â€ said Coach Jim Smith. Smith said the loss to Hilliard will be a good character builder and will test the Eagles to see what they are made of. â€œWe have to play better. We will,â€ Smith said. â€œey are good kids. If they keep working hard theyâ€™ll get better. Weâ€™ve just got to make routine plays.â€ e team is relatively inexperienced, but it wasnâ€™t just young players making the mistakes. Smith recalled one baserunning error that cost the team runs, but he said other mistakes allowed Hilliard to advance through the bases and move into scoring position. Errors, Missed Opportunities at Plate Contribute to Bronson LossEagle pitcher Dustin Landgraver delivers a pitch in the rst inning. Photo by Terry Witt.

By Terry Witt Senior Staff WriterSome of the worldâ€™s nest cakes went for high dollar prices Friday at the annual Bronson FFA Alumni Food Fest, raising a total of about $5,000. Tickets to the buet luncheon that preceded the cake auction raised $2,000 while the cake auction generated $3,450. More than 200 people attended the fundraising event to generate money for the Alumni Scholarship program and FFA travel. e Rafter Cross band entertained the crowd after students served chicken, sausage, pulled pork, hush puppies, swamp cabbage and more in the buet dinner before the cake auction. e dessert table wasnâ€™t ignored. One entre, banana pudding, was so good it should be enshrined in the bakerâ€™s hall of fame. After the meal, Cracker Johnson auctioned o bake goods from Louisa Lyons, Jeannie Norris, Brinley Bedford, Mandy Smith, Mary Holmes, Liz Powers, Renee Redwine, Zelda Lott, Geneva Jerrels, Faye Sache, Donna Dees, Candace Hulett, Brenda Davis, Debbie Grant, Wendy Bird, Elaine Watson and Romona Beauchamp. Beauchampâ€™s now famous red velvet cake sold for $400 to her husband James who allowed it to be resold. School Board member Chris Cowart paid $260 for the prized cake. Lynn Bedford purchased one of Mrs. Beauchampâ€™s red velvet cakes for $210 with the understanding that it would be baked in a few days. Faye Sacheâ€™s coconut layer cake sold for $310 and Geneva Jerrelsâ€™ coconut pound cake sold for $280. e buyers were School Superintendent Bob Hastings, Joanne Jordan, William Watson, Assistant School Superintendent Je Edison, David Bird, Insurance Centre of Dunnellon, Steve Bird of Bird Insurance Agency, Dewayne Williams, Jerry Lawrence, Levy County Judge Tim Browning, Terri McGinty, James Beauchamp, Cowart, Supervisor of Elections Tammy Jones, Macâ€™s Heating and Air; Charlie Bedford, David Knowles, Levy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles, Levy County Schools Foundation Director Angela Johnson and Lynn Bedford of County Seat Barbershop. Money raised at Food Fest will provide scholarship money and funds for travel to the Florida Leadership Conference. Ty Barber is the only senior who qualied for a scholarship this year. He is the only FFA senior who earned a state FFA Degree necessary to be eligible for the scholarship. Last year, there were eight scholarship winners who received money ranging from $500 to $1,500. FFA Alumni Secretary Amanda Huber said the Alumni were extremely pleased with the turnout and the amount of money that was raised in a non-election year. â€œI canâ€™t remember a year when we made more than $5,000,â€ she said.High Dollar Cakes Raise Scholarship Money for Bronson FFAFood Fest brought a big crowd. More than 200 people purchased tickets. The First Baptist Church Community Center was full. Photo by Terry Witt.

BOOTHMrs. Mildred â€œMidgeâ€ N. Booth of Gainesville passed away at the age of 84 on February 26, 2015. Mrs. Booth was Playing on Godâ€™s SquadDespite my stellar high school baseball career, not one college scout came recruiting. I donâ€™t know, maybe they werenâ€™t impressed with my 6â€™3 170 lb physique. Maybe they frowned on the idea of having to time a 40-yard dash with a calendar? Whatever the case, I was down in the dumps about it. When my grandma found out she said, â€œIâ€™ll call coach Bellipani down at the Jr. College. Heâ€™ll let you on the team.â€ Of course I didnâ€™t take her seriously. At least not until she came back with a scholarship oer! ank goodness for grandmothers with Italian family pull. I didnâ€™t let her down. I pitched a no-hitter in my college baseball debut. Iâ€™ll just let that sink in a minute, before I admit I never pitched us to another victory after that. In fact, we barely won that game. I think itâ€™d be a fair assessment to say our team stunk. After my initial outing I was pegged as the Ace. Unfortunately that meant I was given the privilege of pitching against all the teams that would most likely consider my 85 mph fastball batting practice. I could always count on Coach Bellipani though. Heâ€™d never give up on me. You could tell, by the way heâ€™d leave me out there until my earned run average was running neck and neck with my pitch count. I guess eventually those meaningless stats in that little game book, along with the jeers of the three football players we considered our home crowd, began taking a toll on me. My condence was being slapped out of the park faster than my curveball, and I ceased being a warrior content to give his best for the team. In fact, I began saving my best pitches for a very dierent pastime; the blame game. Soon my mouth was giving new meaning to the term â€˜bull pinâ€™. It didnâ€™t bode well with the coach. Before the season was over the bat boy stood a better chance of taking the mound than me. It wouldâ€™ve taken a bunker busting bomb to dig me out of that dug out. Looking back, I really wish I would have made better decisions. e Ace had become the King of Excuses, and ended up playing the Joker. But anyway Excuses are a dime a dozen in todayâ€™s society. I can only imagine some of them God will hear on judgment day. People will be gathered around Godâ€™s Great White rone of judgment claiming, â€œI thought all roads led to God?â€ Others pleading ignorance, â€œBut my text books said I came from pond scum that crawled out and grew legs before turning into a monkey!â€ (Does that sound as ridiculous to you as it does to me?) Many will probably be prepared to list their good works, but Iâ€™m sure when they encounter Godâ€™s glory and holiness, theyâ€™ll simply bow and confess like everyone else, â€œJESUS IS LORD.â€ Sadly, by then it will be too late. ereâ€™ll be no excuse for having rejected the One True Godthe God of the Bible, and His plan of salvation oered in this life through His Son Jesus. ( But God shows his anger from heaven against all sinful, wicked people who push the truth away from themselves. For the truth about God is known to them instinctively. God has put this knowledge in their hearts. From the time the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky and all that God made. ey can clearly see his invisible qualities--his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse whatsoever for not knowing God. Romans 1:18-20 NLT) Well, thereâ€™s good news. Iâ€™ve come recruiting today, on behalf of a Coach who wants you to know He hasnâ€™t given up on you. He still carries a clean white jersey in His bag with your name on it. He is waiting for the day youâ€™ll dress out and swing for the heavens. So shed those excuses, repent, and receive Jesus as your Lord. Be a part of Godâ€™s squad?

Iâ€™m married to a clam farmer. Iâ€™d like to think I provide assistance to the industry.â€ Last month, Sturmer was honored with the Distinguished Service Award by the U.S. Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society. â€œTo be honored by your peers is very rewarding,â€ she said. â€œIâ€™d hate to think itâ€™s because Iâ€™m getting old. To see Cedar Key continue to be a working waterfront community, to see this community be supported by aquaculture is more rewarding than the plaque. But the plaque is recognition that your peers see youâ€™re doing worthwhile work.â€ Jack Payne, UF senior vice president of agriculture and natural resources, agreed. â€œis is one of the most prestigious honors that a professional in the eld of aquaculture science can receive,â€ Payne said. e plaque reads: â€œDistinguished Service Award presented to Leslie Sturmer for her cuttingedge personal contributions to the U.S. aquaculture industry through her leadership in research, education, Extension and consultant work in aquaculture by the U.S. Aquaculture Society, a chapter of the World Aquaculture Society.â€ A bio written for the conference read in part: â€œFew people in the eld of sheries and aquaculture can lay claim to fundamentally changing a community for the better the way that Leslie has in Cedar Key, Florida. In less than 20 years, a diverse team led by Leslie has saved the small shing village of Cedar Key from the economic depression caused by the closure of the traditional gill net shery by working with the community and government to develop the stateâ€™s clam farming industry.â€ Clam farming is now Floridaâ€™s most lucrative marine aquaculture industry, with a statewide economic impact of about $39 million. Cedar Key produces the majority of the stateâ€™s total clam crop, with an annual farm gate value of $12.3 million, according to the most recent UF estimates. e industry now grows more than 125 million clams per year, and provides the Cedar Key area with more than 500 jobs. Sturmer works with the shellsh aquaculture industry in, as she says, â€œwhatever their needs are.â€ at can mean assembling a team of Florida Sea Grant experts to help diversify species by evaluating the culture and market potential of the Sunray Venus Clam. Sturmer also has recently worked with representatives from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in conducting workshops on oyster culture as the shery failure has spurred interest in this pursuit. John Supan, a professor and oyster specialist at Louisiana State University and Bill Walton, associate professor of aquaculture and aquatic sciences at Auburn University nominated Sturmer for the award. â€œIf there were a Hall of Fame for aquaculture outreach, extension and research, Leslie Sturmer could retire today and be assured of a place in this Hall for what she has accomplished already in her great career,â€ Walton said. UF/IFAS aquaculture Extension agent Leslie Sturmer works in her lab. Based in Cedar Key, Sturmer has a statewide Extension appointment and brings researchbased data to those in the aquaculture industry.

Beautyâ€™s Haven is a small, yet eective, grassroots organization that was established in 2006. e organization operates solely from tax deductible donations made by the public, fundraisers, and grants from organizations such as the ASPCA. It is not funded by any local, state, or Federal agencies. e ASPCA Equine Fund provides grants to organizations across the country that work hard to reduce the suering, or potential suering, of equines at risk of neglect, abuse, and homelessness. is nationwide competition gives the organizations an opportunity to raise awareness about the lifesaving work they do. Horses have been central to the ASPCAâ€™s work since its founding 149 years ago, when Henry Bergh stopped a cart driver from beating his horse, resulting in the rst successful arrest for the abuse of a horse on April 26, 1866. e protection of equine has been a core part of the ASPCA mission ever since, including legislation, advocacy, rescue and targeted grants. Gates will open to the public at noon to celebrate the ASPCAâ€™s National â€œHelp a Horse Dayâ€ in conjunction with our â€œ6th Annual Celebration of Life.â€ Come and learn what proper equine care involves, what to do if you suspect a horse is not receiving proper care, costs associated with owning an equine, and how to help even if you canâ€™t own an equine. Members of the community will be speaking about how Beautyâ€™s Haven has impacted their lives and veterinarians will be speaking about some of our most challenging cases. e ASPCA contest requires the rescue to create a major event that brings attention to the plight of horses in need. e ve rescue groups with the most successful events through all available channels will each win $10,000 to help them continue in their mission to help equine. ere are many ways you can help us win, even if you canâ€™t attend, and have fun too! Social media is a wonderful tool that will help us bring the event to you! And, just by signing our attendance roster you will be helping! Planned activities of the day include: Live entertainment Tack ReRun Sale Special appearances by special horses and donkeys Kids Games Food and drinks will be available Silent Auction Presentation by Dr. Brendan Mangan, DVM, MS, DACVO, Aliated Veterinary Specialists Gainesville Specialty Center Presentation by Dr. Michael Porter, DVM, PhD, PHD Veterinary Services Presentation by Dr. Simonson, DVM, Holistic and Integrative Medicine Lilyâ€™s (miniature horse) Kissing Booth Hands on Matilda the Mammoth Mule Bake Sale Special appearances by volunteers, adopters, and their horses We have chosen Daisy, a 5 year old miniature donkey, to be our â€œposter donkeyâ€ this year. Daisy came to us with large tumors around both of her eyes which are being treated. She has a huge love for life and such a positive attitude â€“ she runs and plays despite her issues. Daisy has a wonderful and dedicated care team to help her overcome. ere are many horses at Beautyâ€™s Haven that are â€œovercomersâ€ and youâ€™ll get to meet some of them at the event! We are hoping that the information we share about equine cancer, and information provided by veterinarians that will be speaking, will raise awareness about equine cancer and help to save lives. Join us on our journey with Daisy to â€œkick cancer!â€ Beautyâ€™s Haven was awarded Veried status by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries which is the only globally recognized organization that provides standards for identifying legitimate animal sanctuaries.
