Bronson Burglars 2A Timmons gets Scholarship 3A Drummond Birthday 3A FFA Rodeo 8A Bronson Champs 1B Bids 7Bcontinued to page 8A continued to page 5A continued to page 5A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterRegional General Hospital in Williston is rapidly improving its facilities and stang under the new owner, but a remark by Levy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles last week did little to improve its image. In a speech to Chieand Rotary Club, Knowles said Levy County’s ambulances have “more technical ability than the hospital in Williston” and patients “are better o in our ambulance going to the hospital.” e reputation of the hospital is well known in the county, but County Coordinator Freddie Moody said Monday he would “prefer our department heads not make a statement like that.” Knowles, in an email response to the Journal, said Levy County and Regional Hospital have been working diligently to identify patient improvement to the overall patient care at the hospital. When it was brought to his attention that Regional Hospital did not have a critical piece of monitoring equipment for patients, Knowles said he consulted with the hospital and has been told the hospital has ordered the Bronson BubbaQue’s Closes for Lack of Customer VolumeBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterBubbaQue’s Restaurant in Bronson has been closed because it was underperforming, according to owner Ryan Bell. Bell said the Bronson BubbaQue’s was the rst in his chain of restaurants but he said other restaurants in town have opened since BubbaQue’s started and there aren’t enough customers to justify keeping it open. He said a decision was made to serve both the Bronson and Williston markets out of the new Williston BubbaQue’s. Signs posted on the door of the former Bronson BubbaQue’s also direct customers to the Chieand restaurant. Bell said the decision to close the Bronson restaurant was bittersweet because it was the rst BubbaQue’s in the history of the company, but at the same time market conditions in Bronson are such that it doesn’t make sense to keep it open. He said the Bronson Restaurant reopened after he started BubbaQue’s. A new small restaurant on the north end of town has also opened. “We hate to leave Bronson. We had saturated the market. We wanted By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterChieand city commissioners are at a crossroads in their attempts to secure a county commission license to operate an ALS non-transport truck in the city, with the project’s future hinging on whether the city can aord to pay the tab or look for another option such as allowing a county takeover of the re department. Commissioners are not to the point of deciding how to pay for the ALS non-transport service, and instead approved a motion at Monday night’s meeting to ask the county commission for clarication on whether it intends to deduct $66,920 of re assessment tax money from the funds it provides the city every year to ght res outside the city limits. A county commission consultant has recommended deducting the money because the operation of an ALS truck would mean the city re department would be making fewer rst responder calls to medical emergencies. e city re department disagrees with the consultant. e city commission also wants to know if the county would replace the medical drugs that a city ALS non-transport truck would use to treat patients. e city is willing to buy the rst round of drugs but wants the county to replace the drugs it uses after that, since the city would be performing a county Emergency Medical Services function. Some commissioners also want some indication of whether the county would actually approve ALS nontransport if the city meets all its requirements, although it’s not clear whether that question would be part of the letter. Commissioners Teresa Barron and Betty Walker suggested writing the letter to the county commission. Mayor Teal Pomeroy oered two proposals at Monday’s city commission meeting regarding ALS-non Bronson players and coaches celebrate their district tournament title with the scoreboard as a backdrop.

Sherry Bonda and her 92-year-old mother, Dorothy Asbell Hardee, say there were drug stores in Bronson as early as the 1920s. ey said the Dixon Drug Store was part of a line of stores along the east side of Main Street that sold patent medicines. Later on, the Dixon family owned a drug store at the corner of Picnic Street and U.S. 27A that was later purchased by the Peterson family in the mid 1950s. It was sold to Dogan Cobb. He operated it as a Drug and Sundries Store, installed a grill and sold ice cream sundaes, shoes and underwear. Cobb sold the drug store to the Hitchinds family in 1960 or 1961. en in 1978 or 1979, Lee omas Sr. and Lee omas Jr. built omas Drug Store at U.S. 27A and Main Street. It was constructed at the site of the former Bronson train depot. Bonda said Ronnie Stevens was the pharmacist at omas Drug Store until 1984 when he left for law school. He became an attorney. e drug store probably closed in 1986 or 1987. Bonda said Patent Medicines were sold in the old days when the early Bronson drug stores operated. Patent medicines included quinine, witch hazel, cod liver oil for rickets, iodine, mercurochrome, black draught, three sixes tonic, alcohol, peroxide and liniment. Many of these are sold as over the counter medicines today in drug stores and elsewhere. Bonda said several people noticed when the Journal story said there were no previous drug stores in town. For the sake of history, she said good-naturedly, she decided to do some research on the subject.Public Safety Director’s Statement at Rotary Raises Eyebrows Williston Man Arrested for Child Porn on PhoneBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterA 31-year-old Williston man has been arrested on charges of domestic battery and possession of more than 1,700 photos of child pornography. John Lawson Fullbright came to the attention of the Levy County Sheri’s Oce when his spouse called investigators to say she had discovered several images of what she believed were child pornography on his phone. e discovery of child porn on his phone touched o a domestic dispute. His spouse refused to return the phone to Fullbright and contacted law enforcement. Law enforcement ocers seized the phone but were unable to arrest John Lawson Fullbright Bronson District ChampionsCity Mulls Options for ALS NonTransport; Will Send County a LetterIn Days Gone By, Bronson Did Have Drug StoresInglis Commissioner Gets Small Fine in Plea Deal over Dumping By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterInglis Town Commissioner Michael Andrew White won’t be serving any time in jail for burying car parts and other material at his auto salvage and recycling business, but he will be paying $220 in court costs. As part of a negotiated deal with prosecutors, he pleaded no contest last week to reckless pollution, a second degree misdemeanor and state prosecutors agreed to drop a second charge of commercial dumping. He must appear before Circuit Judge William Davis on May 20 to conrm he has paid court costs. But court records said there will be no sentence connected to the reckless pollution charge. His attorney, Stephen Crawford, said it may seem like a sweet deal for White, and in some ways it was, but he actually wanted to go to trial and tell his story to a panel of jurors. Crawford said White was convinced of his innocence and believed that the former Inglis Police Department lodged the allegations while White was talking about closing down the police department for good. Crawford said he convinced White to agree to the plea deal to avoid forcing taxpayers to foot continued to page 3A continued to page 5A

An Adult and Two Young Burglars Arrested for Bronson Break-InsBy Terry WittSenior Staff WriterLevy County sheri’s investigators have arrested a 21-year-old man and two juveniles for the burglary of three Bronson businesses on April 18. Eric Oliver was taken into custody on charges of burglary and grand theft on April 20 and is being held at the Levy County Detention Facility on $250,000 bond. Deputies discovered two of the burglaries while conducting security checks at local businesses. A&A Restaurant and Shakers were the two businesses that were found to have been burglarized. Investigators were summoned to the scene of these break-ins in the early Sunday morning hours to begin their investigation. Later Sunday morning, Sweetwater Trading, a retail gun store, was found to have been burglarized. Investigators recovered evidence leading to the identication of the three suspects. A fourth burglary at the Church of God by Faith, reported in March, was also cleared by the arrests. A fourth juvenile identied in this case was arrested on April 24 and released to the Department of Juvenile Justice. Two of the juveniles arrested have been charged with probation violations. e recent arrests do not solve all the burglary cases in Bronson. Sheri’s investigators are still working these cases. e three burglaries at the Levy County Journal and a breakEric Olivercontinued to page 3A

Richardson said he was coaching in Dunnellon when he rst saw Timmons running as a 7th grader and knew Timmons would be someone special. He said he had the good fortune to come to Chieand and coach Timmons. When Richardson saw Timmons play, he said he immediately saw “this big impact he had on the community.” “I am certainly pleased I’ve been part of his life for three years,” Richardson said. Timmons was sidelined with an injury for much of his senior year and wasn’t able to carry the Indians as far as they could have gone if he had been on the eld playing running back. Richardson said Timmons is a good t for the Mesabi Range football program. He told Timmons it would be an adventure in cold country, but to remember the classrooms are always warm up there. Timmons, known as a soft spoken young man, was asked to say a few words at the scholarship signing. “I’m living in a small town with big hearts. I love them all,” Timmons said. Timmons will have his cousin from the Dixie County Bears, Tre Simmons, as a teammate along with four or ve other players from this part of Florida. His father, Alphonso Timmons, Sr. said he won’t be homesick as long as he can call home and talk to his mother.CHS Running Back Alphonso Timmons Signs Athletic Scholarship Alphonso Timmons, Jr. signs a football scholarship to Mesabi Range College in Minnesota as his parents and siblings watch.

Scott Tummond. “Has anyone admitted to it – no.” A sheri’s deputy who keeps close watch on the Journal during the nighttime hours discovered the burglary and contacted Journal ocials. Nothing was taken from the Journal, which no longer keeps cash in the building. Tummond said the sheri’s oce certainly has a long list of “distinguished” suspects who may have committed the burglaries, but in the absence of forensic evidence the sheri’s oce will have to rely on witness testimony or confessions. “At some point they are going to make a mistake and we’re going to pick them up,” Tummond said.An Adult and Two Young Burglars Arrested for Bronson Break-Ins continued from page 2A By Terry WittSenior Staff WriterDrummond Community Bank celebrated its 25th Anniversary with a reception in the bank lobby ursday. One of the founding directors, Etter Usher, was on hand along with his daughter Lynetta Griner, a current director and Luther Drummond, the president and CEO of the locally-owned bank, and his son Gray Drummond, executive vice president. Drummond and Griner recalled the day the bank received its name from her brother, the late Tommy Usher. e Drummonds and Ushers were at Drummond Farm talking about what to name the new bank. Drummond said they were throwing out all sorts of names before Tommy Usher made the ocial pronouncement. He said the bank should have Drummond in its name. “Tommy said I’ll tell you one thing, if I could aord to start my own bank, I’d put my name on it,” Griner recalled. e bank started out with zero assets in Chieand Regional Shopping Center but has grown to a bank with $400 million in assets. Drummond Community Bank encompasses 11 banks in ve counties. Perkins State Bank merged with Drummond Community Bank two years ago. e bank is associated with three other companies, Nature Coast Insurance, Nature Coast Financial and Bankers Title Insurance. Visitors to the reception were given a tour of the bank and a brief history of a 238-year-old map of the New World before it was settled and became what the United States and Canada . “ere were no maps of the New World in 1777 when this map was drawn,” said David Claussen, the bank’s chief underwriter. e John Mitchell Map is one of 11 known to exist. e British and French were making competing claims for the New World. “e political nature of the map is that the British drew this to say this is the denitive map of British dominions,” he said. Guests touring the bank walked through a large hallway where the paintings of four of the founding directors who have passed away – Donald Quincey, Ottis Beauchamp, Randolph Hodges and Jack Mann -were displayed.

Fullbright, unaware that law enforcement had probable cause for his arrest responded to a sheri’s oce request to give a statement. Fullbright came to the sheri’s oce and was arrested for domestic battery. He posted a $30,000 bond and was released. Sheri’s Investigator Tom Martin continued to investigate the allegations about pornographic images being seen on Fullbright’s phone. Martin secured a search warrant on April 23 and conducted a forensic analysis of the phone that was surrendered by Fullbright’s spouse. During his search of the phone’s internal memory he discovered approximately 1,741 images of children between the ages of 2 and 12 in various sexually explicit poses. Martin also found video clips of children engaged in sexual acts with adults and other minor children, and images of children engaged in sexual acts with animals. Martin obtained an arrest warrant for Lawson and developed information that he was in Marion County. He worked with the Marion County Sheri’s Oce but could not locate Fullbright. On April 27, Fullbright was surrendered to the Levy County Sheri’s Oce by his attorney Mark Feather. Fullbright is being held in the Levy County Detention Facility on a $250,000 bond. Lt. Scott Tummond said the identities of the victimized children have not been determined. He said investigators for the sheri’s oce are working with the FBI and the National Information Center for Missing and Exploited children. Some of the children may have been exploited or abused in the past and their records and photos may take the investigation down fresh avenues of information. e FBI has the resources to examine Fullbright’s phone in greater detail, according to Tummond. He said investigators want to determine if he downloaded the images, if someone sent the images to him by email or if he participated in the production of pornographic images, all of which could lead to additional felony charges.Williston Man Arrested for Having Child Porn on Phone continued from page 1A

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923 Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateWe all make mistakes and some of us learn from them. What is even better is to learn from other people’s mistakes, where they pay for those mistakes while we learn free of charge. Many Americans who say that we should learn from other people, especially Europeans, mean that we should imitate what they did. at may make those who talk this way feel superior to other Americans. But let us never forget that the most disastrous ideologies of the 20th century -Communism, Fascism and Nazism -all originated in Europe. So did both World Wars. More recently, Europe has been belatedly discovering how unbelievably stupid it was to import millions of people from cultures that despise Western values, and which often promote hatred toward Western people. Maybe that is a mistake that we can think about when Congress nally decides to do something about our open borders and our immigration laws that we refuse to enforce. European anti-trust regulators are giving us another free lesson in confused thinking by ling anti-trust charges against Google, on grounds that its searching facilities give preferential treatment to Google’s own searching services over other competing searching services. e European Union’s commissioner for competition explained the basis for the complaint against Google: “We have a focus on a certain conduct, a certain behavior which, if our doubts are going to be proven, we would like to change because we believe that it hampers competition.” Some of us think laws should be clear-cut statements of what you can and cannot do. Indicting people under laws that can lead to nes in the billions of dollars over what “we believe” or what international bureaucrats have “doubts” about is not really law. It is an exercise of arbitrary power, based on whatever subjective notions are in vogue among government bureaucrats. e history of American anti-trust law shows too many similar vague and confused notions masquerading as law. e idea that the accused must prove their innocence, under the “rebuttable presumptions” of the Robinson-Patman Act of 1936, was a forerunner of the same mindset under later “disparate impact” theories in civil rights law. What such fancy words boil down to is that very little evidence is required to shift the burden of proof to the accused, in deance of centuries-old legal traditions that the accuser has the burden of proof in criminal cases and the plaintis have the burden of proof in civil cases. Otherwise, any fact or theory that sounds plausible to legal authorities is enough to force the accused to prove a negative or lose the case. Such violations of the legal standards used in most other cases are usually inicted on those who have already been demonized and whose guilt has been assumed and punishment is fervently desired, such as big business, employers accused of discrimination or men accused of rape. Google is accused of running its Internet search programs in such a way that they are more accessible to the public than other search programs available through Google. Since people can search through other sources besides Google, it is not at all clear why Google cannot run its own operation for its own benet, while others run their operations for their own benet. e whole point of competition in the market is to create economic eciency which, by its very nature, means eliminating the less ecient producers. Confusion about the dierence between maintaining competition and maintaining competitors has long plagued anti-trust law on both sides of the Atlantic. But Americans seem in recent years to be recognizing the dierence. In Europe, there still seems to be a notion that big companies with many customers should help their smaller competitors survive -especially if the big companies are American and the smaller companies are European. In other words, Google should be run in such a way that competing search programs are as prominently featured as Google’s own search program. Whatever the case that could be made for this argument, as a matter of manners, noblesse oblige or whatever, people in charge of anti-trust law are not in charge of manners or noblesse oblige. Law is too serious to be subordinated to fashionable notions or political expediency. omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

COPYRIGHT 2015 CREATORS.COM Michele MalkinCreators SyndicateAmerica has an alphabet soup of visa programs for foreigners to choose from: B-1 for business visitors, B-2 for tourists, EB-5 for investors, F-1 for students, and so on. All are overwhelmed, loosely monitored and riddled with fraud and corruption. According to the recently unsealed federal indictment against him, sleazy Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., took it upon himself to add his own very special, crooked path to the U.S. Call it the 36DD Visa. e New York Post recounted this weekend how Menendez and his sta pressured the State Department to expedite the foreign tourist and student visa approval processes for a bevy of buxom foreign beauties. One of them, Brazilian actress and nudie model Juliana Lopes Leite (a.k.a. “Girlfriend 1”), had her F-1 student visa application moved to the top of the Mount Everest-high heap in 2008 as a favor to Menendez’s now-indicted donor pal and accused Medicare fraudster Salomon Melgen. A senior Menendez staer emailed a State Department staer that Girlfriend 1 “has her visa application appointment in Brasilia, Brazil, tomorrow. ... Sen. Menendez would like to advocate unconditionally for Dr. Melgen and encourage careful consideration of (Girlfriend 1)’s visa application.” Oba! “e State Department responded within hours, and the woman got her visa the following day,” the Post reported. Sugar daddy Melgen set up a shady nonprot to help fund Lopes Leite’s education, according to the indictment. e IRS-approved “foundation” for “helping with the educational needs of disadvantaged persons” also subsidized college costs for a second woman “romantically linked to Menendez.” Here’s my question: Menendez played visaxer in 2008. Lopes Leite graduated with a law degree from the University of Miami in 2010, but spent most of her time jet-setting around the world with Melgen. According to the Post, she is still here and now practicing law in Miami -seven years after obtaining her 36DD visa. Why and how is she still here? e F-1 is supposed to be a temporary visa. Applicants have to prove to consular ocials that they plan to go back home after their studies as a condition of getting into our country and availing themselves of our educational system. e deal was that they’d gain a positive attitude about the U.S. and serve as ambassadors of our values and principles when they returned to their native lands. Aside from the extreme abuse and corruption involved in the Menendez scheme, this case spotlights the wider everyday systemic failures to enforce the original intent and rules of the program. Nearly 500,000 F-1 foreign students come to the U.S. every year. Despite repeated warning ags involving foreign students on F-1 visas who slipped through the cracks -the 1993 World Trade Center bombing, the 9/11 plot, the Times Square bombing plot, the Boston Marathon bombing -Washington refuses to hit the pause button and get the program under control. By the federal government’s own admission in multiple independent audits and inspector general reports, ocials at the Departments of Homeland Security and State cannot eciently police and monitor the ood. ose assessments show that we have failed to carefully vet the student applicants overseas; failed to screen out the yby-night “schools” certied to enroll them in the U.S.; failed to keep tabs on the “designated school ocials” entrusted to track their compliance; failed to verify that the employers who are approved to sponsor F-1s for education-related “job training” are not exploiting the program as a pipeline for cheap foreign labor undercutting American workers; failed to ensure that F-1s go home when their visas expire; and failed to track and eject overstayers and violators who break the rules. Under federal corruption law, it is a crime to trade “things of value” with politicians to inuence ocial acts or commit fraud. Yet, for decades, America has recklessly traded away one of its most precious “things of value”: entry into this country. It’s clear what Menendez and Melgen got out of F-1. But what about the rest of the country? Each and every temporary visa program is supposed to enhance the national interest -not just the naked demands and desires of universities, corporations and dirty old men. Instead of stemming the tide and making enforcement a priority, politicians in both parties are pushing forward with various schemes to radically expand and extend the foreign student visa racket. It’s proof positive that Brazil’s got nothing on the biggest boobs in Washington.

Any undeliverable rst class mail returned to the Elections oce initiates the process of changing the voter’s registration status. Any returned mail from registered voters triggers two separate mailings requesting conrmation of the voter’s current residential address. If the Elections oce receives no response, the voter will be placed in inactive status. A voter on the inactive list may be restored to the active list when the voter updates his or her registration, requests an absentee ballot, or appears to vote. If no activity occurs by the second general election after being placed on the inactive list, the voter’s name is removed from the voter registration rolls and the voter shall be required to reregister to have his or her name restored to the voter rolls. Not only does undeliverable mail compromise the voter’s registration, it detracts from the ability of the Elections oce to keep the voter informed of any changes in polling location or important election information. Supervisor of Elections, Tammy Jones, said “it is important that voters are aware of their responsibility in keeping their voter registration current. Now is the time to check with our oce to make sure all of your voter information is up to date.” Anyone wanting to check their voter status can go to the Elections oce website at www. votelevy.com or call the oce, located at 421 South Court Street, Bronson, FL 32621, at 352/486-5163. Levy County Supervisor of Elections Will Conduct Voter List Maintenance ActivitiesPublic Safety Director’s Statement at Rotary Raises Eyebrows continued from page 1Aequipment. He said Levy County is currently providing training assistance with both sta and equipment for the hospital’s Emergency Department sta. “Regional General Hospital in Williston does not have this technology in their emergency department. Levy County is unable to transport patients to Williston who are critically ill, that require or might require respiratory assistance, or are in cardiopulmonary arrest at this time. is is a safety issue,” Knowles said. He added, “Quantitative Waveform Capnography (sometimes called ‘end-title CO2’) is a lifesaving technology that has been considered the standard of care in emergency medicine for many years. In Florida, all ALS rescue units since 2008 have been required by law to carry “electronic waveform capnography capable of read time monitoring.” Additionally, waveform capnography has been an Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life support (PALS) requirement for any intubated or cardiac arrest patient since 2010.” Knowles said that in no way did he say that the hospital sta or the facilities are inferior. Moody said he is aware that Regional General Hospital is working to upgrade its equipment and sta, but at the same time he said the county doesn’t want to send a patient to Williston and have to bill them twice if Williston can’t treat them and they must be transferred to a Gainesville hospital. He said patients sometimes go straight to Gainesville if the paramedics deem it in the best interests of the patients. Knowles meets with hospital ocials monthly, but Director of Nursing at Regional General Melanie Stokes said that doesn’t make him an expert on Williston’s ability to provide quality and personalized care for patients. Personalized care is expected in a small town setting, she said, and it’s something the larger facilities can’t provide. “Mr. Knowles has taken a lot of liberty by what he says about the hospital, but he is by no means an authority on the subject,” Stokes said. “We are moving forward and are excited about the growth. We have one sta member who travels two hours a day, one way, just to be a part of the changes taking place at the hospital. Stokes said she has heard from other sources that Knowles has made similar statements about the hospital. “at’s ne. Mr. Knowles has to do what is in the best interests of his organization,” she said. “We are at a higher level of care than what some people feel. Some people feel when they deliver a patient here they will receive a lower level of care.” She said that’s not true. She said the hospital strives to provide the best care to patients. She agrees with Knowles’ view that it will take “baby steps” for the hospital to reach its goals. She conrmed that the hospital has ordered the piece of monitoring equipment Knowles recommended. “We are a edgling hospital and are capable of stabilizing patients to send them to a higher level of care,” she said. “We are a complete hospital. We have every piece of equipment needed for our professionals to administer quality care, but it’s not a Cadillac.” Stokes, daughter of Williston Mayor Gerald Hethcoat, said her return to Regional General Hospital was sentimental. She worked as a CNA at the hospital while obtaining her degree as a registered nurse. Williston is her hometown and she wants to make the hospital as successful as it once was earlier in its history. e hospital was once operated by the Williston City Council, but when the hospital was sold to private interests the ownership and name changed several times. e new owner, Dr. Devaiah Pagdpati, or Dr. P as he is known by those who can’t pronounce his name, has owned the hospital for a year and pledged to make it a top ight facility. Moody said he is aware that the hospital is purchasing used equipment in some instances. When he took a tour of the hospital he saw a scanner that was not in operation yet. ey planned to buy used parts to make the scanner operational. “ey know they have some things to beef up on and they’ll get there, but it is expensive,” Moody said. transport. Regarding the rst proposal, Pomeroy said he spoke privately to three county commissioners who said if the city would allow the county re assessment to be imposed within the city limits the county commission would be willing to take over operation of the city re department and would provide the city with ALS non-transport. e city currently accepts approximately $212,000 of county re assessment funding to ght res outside the city limits in Fire District 7 and in other communities where the city has a mutual aid agreement, but the city doesn’t impose a re assessment of its own nor does it allow the county commission to impose a re assessment within the city limits. A re assessment within the city limits would be a new tax. Pomeroy’s statement about three unidentied county commissioners saying the county commission would be willing to take over the city re department under certain conditions could potentially aect the job of Chieand Fire Chief James Harris as the city re chief. Levy County Public Safety Director David Knowles would decide who would be in control of the city re department if the county commission operated the department. Chieand Fire Rescue would come under Knowles authority as the public safety director. Harris’s future isn’t being discussed at this point because the city hasn’t made a decision on how to fund ALS non-transport of if a county takeover would be considered. e mayor tossed out one other possibility Monday night. He said if the city were to impose a re assessment of its own within the city limits, the money from the re assessment could be used to fund the city’s share of re services and would replace the roughly $212,000 of city property taxes the city currently uses to fund its portion of the re department. e city’s property tax money then could be used to fund the ALS non-transport truck. Several city commissioners said they weren’t interested in raising taxes, but both of Pomeroy’s suggestions would result in a tax increase. If the county was allowed to take over the re department, city residents would get hit with a re tax for the rst time, or if the city decided to impose a city re assessment taxpayers would get hit with a new tax. e city would also have to bear the cost of a re tax study if it was serious about imposing a city re assessment. e cost of a re assessment study would be about $25,000 to $30,000. e third option for the city would be to abandon any hope of obtaining a county commission license to operate an ALS nontransport truck within the city limits. Everything would be back to square one and the city would continue to operate its own re department and receive county commission re assessment money to ght res outside its city limits. County commissioners have made it clear they won’t give the city any funding out of its $65 million budget to operate an ALS non-transport truck in the city. e county commission holds the state license to operate Emergency Medical Services in Levy County. e county commission has the sole power to license an ALS non-transport truck in the city. e estimated startup costs for ALS non-transport in the city would be $55,000 for the equipment and roughly $75,000 to hire two additional full-time paramedics to sta the truck. Fire department ocials said they have the $55,000 in the re budget, but the city commission would have to nd the remaining $75,000 in their general operating fund. ey would have to provide that money every year. Harris said he wants to sit down with County Commission Medical Director Jason Jones to see if some of the equipment Jones wants on the ALS non-transport truck is absolutely necessary. Jones is essentially requiring the ALS non-transport truck to carry everything an ambulance carries even though the truck can’t transport patients. Jones hasn’t shown any interest to this point in eliminating any equipment from the proposed ALS non-transport truck. Commissioner Rollin Hudson said he would nd it hard to justify to his constituents sending an ALS non-transport truck to medical emergencies outside the city limits without being reimbursed for the money it spends for the call, but Knowles has indicated the Chieand ALS non-transport truck could be dispatched to medical emergencies anywhere in the county. Assistant Fire Chief A.D. Goodman said he doubts the county would dispatch the truck to Inglis. He said the truck would be more likely to be dispatched to a town like Bronson.City Mulls Options for ALS Non-Transport; Will Send County a Letter continued from page 1AInglis Commissioner Gets Small Fine in Plea Deal over Dumping continued from page 1A the bill for a 4-5 day trial that could cost tens of thousands of dollars. e plea deal allowed White to plead no contest to reckless pollution, but adjudication of guilt was withheld, which means White won’t have a criminal record. Crawford said White’s no contest plea means he wasn’t contesting the charge nor was he admitting guilt. He said it was a bitter sweet deal because White was determined to prove his innocence in a trial and tell his story about the Inglis Police Department, but he took into consideration the expense to taxpayers of waging a 4-5 day trial. “Sometimes you get a deal that’s too good to refuse, especially when you look at the bigger picture,” Crawford said. Crawford said the bigger picture is that Inglis police were trying to nd a way to charge White as he worked to close down the police department. Police eventually located a former employee who was willing to testify against him. “at was the underlying story that I didn’t get a chance to tell a jury,” Crawford said. Court records said ground penetrating radar was used at A&D Auto Salvage to look below the ground surface in areas where the former employee said White had buried auto parts and other materials. During the excavation of the salvage and recycling yard, investigators found waste tires, furniture, plastics, metal tanks for fuel and oil and other material buried. ey also found pipes, toilets, fabric, building materials, hoses and wiring buried. Twenty four buried tanks were found at one location. White has told the Journal since his arrest in 2013 that he would beat the charges and would never be convicted. He declined to give details, but he was adamant the state would never convict him. Inglis is now policed by the Levy County Sheri’s Oce and the Inglis Police Department no longer exists.

He said there are currently 15 BubbaQue’s in operation with four more under construction or on the drawing board. He said there is a new BubbaQue’s at the Paddock Mall in Ocala Square and on North Dale Mabry Highway in Tampa and additional franchises are planned for other parts of the state.

Money raised at the rodeo funds college scholarships for kids involved in FFA, for trips to regional and state FFA conventions pays for motel rooms for a program known Ag on the Hill in Tallahassee as well as leadership conferences. “Anything that’s agriculture motivated to help kids, that’s what we use the money for,” said FFA Alumni President Scott Mills. “We’re just using the money to support our kids in the agriculture program.” e annual rodeo at Latoma arena on the omas Brookins farm is supported by three major corporate sponsors, Chieand Farm Supply, Suncoast Credit Unit and Alliance Dairies and Alliance Grazing. Eighteen chute sponsors also support the rodeo. “If it wasn’t for them, we couldn’t put it on,” Mills said. Hollywood Harris was the rodeo clown for the event. He kept the bulls from injuring the bull riders after they had fallen. Harris said if it wasn’t for the FFA he would not have enjoyed the success he has today. “I learned to connect learning with life. at’s what FFA did for me.”

By Terry Witt Senior Sta WriterChieand’s varsity girls’ softball team won the state Class 1A championship last year and will be recognized on a monument in front of the school along with the two CHS state champion football teams. e school until now had used the monument to honor the 1961 and 1997 championship football teams, but Principal Matt McLelland said a decision was made last year to recognize the 2014 varsity softball team’s championship on the same brick monument. With the changes, the monument will say, “Home of the Indians.” e years of the state championship wins for the football and softball teams will be displayed below in gold and Columbia blue, the school colors. McLelland said the old lettering on the monument will be reused to recognize the football team at Wayne Pridgeon Memorial Stadium. He said the players on the softball team were excited to nd out their championship year would be honored on the monument at the front of the school. “Hopefully they’ll win another state championship this year,” McLelland said. e girls are headed to the regional playo ursday, the next step in their bid for their second consecutive state championship. Softball Being Added to Chieand State Champions’ MonumentChieand High School Principal Matt McLelland helps Pat Reedy and his assistant prepare to add more lettering to the state champions’ monument in front of Chieand High School. Photo by Terry Witt. By Terry Witt Senior Sta WriterMany people underestimated the talent and drive of the Bronson Eagle varsity baseball team this season until they won the district tournament in Trenton Friday by defeating Hilliard 10-2. e championship blowout was triggered by back to back home runs by David Dees in the early going which drove in Emory Lake both times and put the Hilliard Flashes in 4-0 hole. e hole got deeper as the Bronson bats nailed 10 hits and sent runners ying across home plate. Eagle fans had been treated the night before to a 5-4 win over Trenton in the opening game. Trenton was the favorite to win the tournament, but the nail-biter went Bronson’s way. Senior Ty Barber’s pitching and solid backup from his teammates in the ineld and outeld prevented Trenton’s disciplined oense from getting traction. e Trenton game ended when Mill Lang’s towering blast to the 350-foot mark in center eld was tracked down by Dees and caught, ending the Tigers’ nal threat to score and sending Bronson fans and players into a frenzy as they realized the team was headed to the district championship. e players dumped Gatorade over Coach Jim Smith’s head and shoulders. Sophomore pitcher Donny Clifton kept the big bats of Hilliard in check during the championship game the next night, backed by spectacular plays by the Eagle ineld and outeld. First baseman Tyler Sullivan chased down the nal out, a curving y ball near the rst base fence that seemed destined to land on the other side of the fence. Sullivan used his speed and athletic skills to catch the foul ball, choking o Hilliard’s nal gasp in the championship game. Bronson players rushed on the eld to jump on Clifton in a traditional pileup for the winning team. Later they were presented the trophy as the district champion, a feat few people expected when the team rst started their season under Smith, an experienced rst year coach who told them they could win it all if they just believed in themselves. It is unclear whether this was Bronson High School’s rst ever district championship. Principal John Lott said as far as he knows this Bronson team is the best since the 1950s when Bronson made it to the state nals under a dierent set of state rules. He said there was no district tournament back then. e teams were broken into only three classications, which meant small schools were playing much bigger schools. Lott said he has heard there was a good Bronson team in the 1990s, but the records are contained in yearbooks and he wasn’t sure whether there had been a previous district champion in the ‘90s. Smith was busting buttons after the team gave him his 400th career win against Trenton on ursday and the district championship the following night. He told the players they bought into the idea of believing in themselves. “It’s a great group of kids and they are remarkable. at’s a kind word,” Smith said. A few minutes later he added, “You guys bought in. You guys gured out how to buy in and believe in yourself.” Smith said he and the team have been talking about making a run for the district championship for a month, and he said it nally fell into place. He described Dees’ eort in the early part of the championship game as nothing short of remarkable. After jacking one homer out of the park, Hilliard apparently decided it was a uke. Wrong. ey pitched to him again and he sent another ball ying over the left center eld fence at the very same spot. Dees was mobbed by the team after the rst two-run homer in the rst inning, but he was swarmed by the team following the second two-run homer in the third inning. Everyone on the team and in the ball park knew a four-run lead in the top of the third inning would be dicult to overcome, and it was. Bronson continued to add to its lead and Hilliard struggled to get a hit against the stingy Eagle defense. Smith told his team after the game he wasn’t the easiest coach to play for. ey were all smiles kneeling in front of him. Smith had taught them how to play championship baseball and convinced them of their talent and their ability to beat any team. “I told you from day one – expect greatness,” Smith said. Bronson collected 21 hits in the two games, 11 against Trenton and 10 against Hilliard. It was undoubtedly their best hitting of the season and came at the perfect moment. Bronson will meet Hamilton County in Bronson at 7 p.m. on Tuesday for the regional semi-nal tournament. Bronson Statistics: Championship Game Donny Clifton pitched 7 innings and got 3 strikeouts.

Hope to see you there.Who’s Training Who?People used to come from miles around to watch me train my black lab Leroy. Not because he was so smart, it’s just nobody had ever seen a dog swim the back-stroke. Like all labs, Leroy loved to fetch. He just happened to be deathly afraid of water! It was sure something to see when those two driving forces collided. If I’d of had any business sense I’d have charged people admission to watch him go. I’d have gotten richer than whoever owns that talking Gecko. Most folks were a might skeptical after hearing the tales of the backstroking dog. I’d see them shaking their heads as I warming him up with a few runs on the dry land. en, to my shame, I’d throw that training dummy way out across the bayou. Leroy wouldn’t hesitate. He’d tear o at full speed and lay out across that water, landing with a tremendous splash. ere’d always be that split second of silence as Leroy disappeared under the surface. (I knew from experience he was under there contemplating his big mistake.) Once he realized what he’d done, he’d shoot up from there like a school of piranhas was snacking on his tail. I’m not sure how long you actually have to walk on water to qualify for sainthood, but I’m sure Leroy would’ve at least deserved honorable mention. He’d be whooping those gangly front legs like a nuclear powered paddle boat. It sounded like an angry beaver tail-slapping symposium. e poor bayou had never taken such a beating, and it’d cough him up every time. His head would be riding two or three feet o the surface, and just when you thought he was sure to drown, he’d lay back and start that famous Leroy back-stroke. Over on the bank, you never heard such cackling in all your life, and it was all at my little buddy’s expense. It was downright shameful, but I took some comfort in knowing everybody else was laughing too. But anywayA lot of folks may have misjudged Leroy on the basis of his one little short coming, but the fear of water was such a small part of his life. ankfully, ole’ Leroy never took it all to heart. He never let his faults dene him. He just kept on plugging along, wagging that tail, loving, and living life to the fullest. You’d have thought he’d wrote the Scripture: ( I will give thanks to You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Wonderful are Your works, And my soul knows it very well . Psalms 139:14 NASB) For example, one day I brought Leroy on a teal hunting trip. My dad scoed, “Leave him home son. He just ain’t gon’ make no hunting dog.” Boy was dad surprised. Leroy didn’t lose a single bird that day in chest high Johnson grass. at dog had a nose that could trail a gnat poot through a fertilizer farm. Leroy also turned out to be quite the sherman. One summer, when the bayou dried up, he sloshed around out in there in the shallows until he wrestled his jaws around a nice mess of big catsh. One day Leroy got lost several miles from home. Mom took me back to look for him for two days. e third day I was sitting out on the front step with my head down praying, trying not to let anybody see me cry, when suddenly I felt a big wet tongue rake across my face. I looked up and there he was, home again, wagging his big happy tail! I was blessed to have Leroy as my friend in those formative years of my life. He was the best dog a fellow could ever have. He taught me to not let my shortcomings dene me, to just keep wagging my tail when I’m laughed at, and to not let anybody keep me from giving life my best shot. It makes me wonder, “Who was training who?” Guy Sheeld www.butanyway.org NoticeWant to spread the news about your community’s events!

Traveling Evangelist Says Many Who Came to The Big Blue Tent in Chieand Walked Away Healed By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterPastor Randy Nichols, a traveling evangelist, singer and songwriter, invoked the name of Jesus Christ as he asked God to heal people attending a Healing Revival in South Chieand last week. e visitors came to the big blue tent because of pain and throat and hearing problems. Nichols said they were healed. Nichols, invited as a guest evangelist at the revival sponsored by the Mt. Zion Church of Jesus Christ in Chieand, said he travels about the country working with pastors of dierent denominations to preach the word of God and save souls. Healing is a part of his ministry, but he said he is not the healer. “It’s a supernatural thing. It’s not something we do. It’s done by God. I tell people I’m like a pipe the water runs through,” Nichols said. “God is the healer.” e healing is done in the name of Jesus Christ. e Healing Revival will go through Wednesday in Chieand and begins at 7 p.m. every night. e tent for the south Chieand revival was provided by omas Ingram of Alabama who works with Nichols when a tent revival is needed. On this occasion, the tent was provided for the Mt. Zion Church of Jesus Christ Healing Revival. Ingram said the revival was all about saving souls. “It’s about souls; trying to reach the lost souls, the people on drugs and alcohol; getting the Lord in their lives; that’s what we’re out here for,” Ingram said. Nichols said he loves preaching in a tent. For him, it’s a way of extending the ministry beyond the four walls of a church and reaching people who need healing and salvation. He lives in the travel home with his wife and they use the RV to carry on their evangelistic healing ministry. It’s also a musical ministry. He and his wife are award winning gospel musicians. He recalls one healing in North Carolina at a tent revival. A man who was in great pain came to Nichols asking for a healing. He was suering from an inoperable hernia that was big enough to bulge out one side of his shirt. e immense pain was visible in his face. “We prayed for him. It was like someone put a pin in it. He was healed,” Nichols said. e man said his pain disappeared. He slapped his side to show the hernia was no longer there. Nichols said he has no standard set of words he uses to invoke a healing by God. He said he doesn’t want the same words used over and over again. He said he has witnessed six cases where cancer has vanished after he prayed for a healing. In Villaria, Georgia he said a woman came forward and asked him to pray for her. She said she was dying of cancer. He prayed for the woman. “I said in the name of Jesus Christ, I cancel the cancer in your body,” he said. e following day, the woman went to her doctor and found the cancer had left her body, Nichols said. Nichols said he was brought to the ministry through the healing of his infant son 26 years ago in south Florida. His baby boy was born with twisted intestines and had no hip sockets. His kidneys were failing. “I knelt down beside my bed and I said, ‘If you will heal my son, I will tell everyone you send to me that you can heal in the name of Jesus Christ,” Nichols said. When he took his son to Shands Hospital for examination a short time later, the doctor said surgery wasn’t necessary because the intestines were untwisting themselves. Doctors examined the baby with diagnostic machines and found that he had grown hip sockets. e doctor said there was nothing wrong with his kidneys either. As a matter of fact, the doctor said, “he has to go to the bathroom right now.” “Despite what the doctor said when my son Stephen was rst born, you have faith in God who created you to heal you, and that’s what God is looking for – people to have faith,” Nichols said. Nichols said his son is perfectly health and has given himself and his wife two grandbabies. In tent revivals and in churches, Nichols said the presence of God in the room can heal people. He remembers one woman who stepped away from her pew to come forward for a healing, then stepped back to her pew. He asked her why she didn’t come forward. She said there was no need. She had already been healed. During the south Chieand revival, he said he was told by God there were people in the audience with esophagus problems. He asked if there were people who needed prayer for that reason. Five or six people came forward to one side of the stage. He said six or seven people came forward with hearing problems to a separate location on the other side of the stage. He laid hands on the people with esophagus problems. God told him the others would be healed of their hearing problems without him going to them. He said everyone reported being healed, including those with hearing problems. Nichols said he travels everywhere. It doesn’t matter. “If the door is open, I go through it,” he said. He said a millionaire purchased the travel home that he and his wife live in and recently repaired it for them. e ministry takes them to churches and to tents. “I preach revivals outside this tent. I minister and pray for the sick in many dierent denominations,” he said.Fireball at Sea Raised Awareness of God’s Existence for Chieand Pastor By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterPastor Henry Huggins remembers his rst experience encountering God when he was aboard a sinking shing boat 55 miles out in the Gulf of Mexico on April 8, 1972. e event raised his awareness of the reality of God, but he would not become a minister for three more years. Huggins, who has pastored the Mt. Zion Church of Jesus Christ for the past 21 years near Chieand and whose church hosted a Healing Revival under a big blue tent in south Chieand this week, said his early adult life was marred by heavy drinking and taking drugs. He described himself as vile and wretched at the time. “I was on drugs and alcohol. I was probably the wickedest man there is,” he said. His was elevated into a higher awareness of God in 1972 when he and a buddy left for a seven-day shing trip in the Gulf of Mexico aboard a shrimp boat. ey were 55 miles out in the Gulf shing for grouper and snapper when the boat began taking on water. e wind was blowing at 35 to 40 knots in 8 to 9 foot seas. Huggins said his friend was below deck in waist deep water using a light to try to repair a malfunctioning pump. e diesel engine continued to run, but they had lost their electricity and could not radio for assistance. ey could not nd the source of the leak. e pump refused to function. “I knew it was over if we didn’t get this thing working; we’re gone,” he said. Standing on the deck of the boat, Huggins said the situation looked hopeless. e boat was slowly lling with water. e water-laden boat couldn’t travel in the high wind and heavy seas without sinking. e two commercial shermen weren’t expected back to shore for seven days. He knew the authorities wouldn’t come looking for them. As Huggins contemplated his fate, he looked into the sky and saw a huge red re ball that appeared to be headed for the pilot house of the boat. ey weren’t in a rain or lightning storm. e ball of re had nearly reached the boat when it turned and headed back into the sky. e high winds immediately calmed down. He said the Gulf of Mexico became as at as a mirror. Huggins knew he had experienced his rst encounter with God. He and his buddy were able to guide the boat carefully back toward the Crystal River coastline through quiet seas. “e boat never took on another drop of water. We run for eight hours and we beached it o Crystal River. e tide overtook it and it rolled on its side,” he said. e two exhausted shermen stayed the night in the pilot house, lying in water. e next morning a sherman came upon their vessel and yelled to nd out if anyone was alive. He picked up both men. Later the boat was turned right side up and taken to the coast. ey were able to repair the boat and use it again for shing. “at was the start of my relationship with God. I became aware of the reality, of the knowledge that there was a God,” he said. Huggins still hadn’t hit rock bottom as a drinker and drug abuser. He continued to drink heavily for another three years before a second big event led him to the ministry. He had been drinking with friends on a Sunday when he began to feel ill. He went home ahead of daylight. He heard the voice of God speaking to him. “God spoke to me audibly. I went to church that night. I had to borrow the dress clothes to go to church that night. at was the beginning of the relationship in knowing God and being lled with the Holy Ghost,” he said. “He told me exactly what church to go to. I can take you to the very spot where I knelt and God lled me with the Holy Ghost.” He and his wife Carla have raised 300 foster children over the years. He said they took every one of them to church. “You sure don’t do it for the money,” he said. e church has been his life for the past 30 years. Healing revivals are part of his spiritual ministry. “Like I tell people; if I don’t help you, I sure won’t hurt you,” he said. “I’m led by the spirit. I’ve seen thousands of miracles. I’ve seen cancers fall o.” His assistant pastor is Wayne Williams. He said Williams’ father had been diagnosed with inoperable cancer of his lungs. Huggins said he saw the x-rays of the lungs. e inside of his lungs looked black. e hospital medical sta wanted to pull the plug on life support. Huggins asked for a chance to pray for him. “We put our hands on him. When we prayed for him, both lungs were solid white,” Huggins said. “He lived for 11 years and they told him he would live six months.” He recalled a healing in 1981 or 1982. He said the tent was packed with people on a Saturday night when two carloads of police showed up. A police ocer asked him if he was aware the music could be heard two miles away. “I said praise God, we can reach that many more people,” he said. He said a woman came forward dragging one foot. Her foot was full of cancer. “When we prayed for her; when we laid our hands on the woman, the power of God hit her; she started dancing; the Holy Ghost lled her,” Huggins said. e woman later told him that when they began praying for her, the foot started burning. Huggins said all the diseased esh fell o. God then restored the foot with healthy esh. He said people often don’t resort to spiritual healing until after they have exhausted all eorts with medical doctors and are given a terminal diagnosis. It takes faith in God to be healed, he said. “Most people don’t believe it; if someone is sick you can put God to the test; if you have faith the size of a mustard seed it will be done,” he said. Evangelist Randy Nichols was one of the pastors who presided over the Healing Revival. He and his wife also sang as Appointed 2, a Christian Country duo. Photo by Terry Witt.
