INSIDE – Ocial Levy County 2014 Delinquent Tax List, Section C Delinquent Personal Property Taxes page 5B By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterChieand High School’s varsity softball team beat Jay for the Class 1A state championship last week in an eighth inning nail-biter that came down to a gutsy play by a talented sophomore. With the game tied at 2-2 and sophomore Takiya London standing on second, Samantha Rolfe, one of Chieand’s most reliable hitters smacked a line drive between shortstop and third that sent London headed home at high speed. Assistant Coach Jimmy Anderson held up two hands to tell London to hold at third but she blasted through her coach’s stop signal and turned on the afterburners to score the winning run. e throw from the outeld was on target, but Coach Wayne Weatherford said the Jay catcher had moved too far away from home plate to tag London when she arrived at Mach speed. Rural Fire Department near Inglis Closes its DoorsBy Terry WittSenior Sta WriterLevy County Public Safety Director David Knowles announced last week that the South Levy Volunteer Fire Department will no longer exist as of May 9. “at’s not a rumor. at’s factual,” Knowles said. South Levy Volunteer Fire Chief Roger Crossman asked Levy County Commissioners for an additional $9,700 last week to repair equipment but was turned down. Crossman said if the commission hadn’t cut $10,000 from his budget last year he wouldn’t need the additional money to survive, but Commissioners Danny Stevens, John Meeks and Mike Joyner showed no interest in providing Crossman with the additional funds. e South Levy Volunteer Fire Department is the last completely volunteer re department in Levy County to close down. e department served Peaceful Acres and other Inglis area residents. Inglis Fire Chief John McDonald said his department would be able to handle the re calls that were once the responsibility of the South Levy Volunteer Fire Department. He said it would help if the county gave him The two-time Chieand state softball champions show o their trophy after the 3-2 win over Jay.

Jury selection is scheduled to take place on May 22 in Levy County Circuit Court. e murder trial begins Tuesday, May 26, the day after Memorial Day. Davis gave attorneys four full days to try the case. When the hearing began, defense attorney Michael Hines asked Ocasio if he wished to go to trial because it would probably end Devonte Ocasio enters the courtroom for his hearing dressed in a red striped jail suit.

City Manager Mary Ellzey said the companies involved with building and operating the new By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterChieand City Manager Mary Ellzey sent a letter to the Levy County Commission on April 28 asking the county to clarify several issues related to the city’s request for an Advanced Life Support non-transport license, but the county has yet to respond and one city commissioner questioned some of the wording in the letter was not approved by the city commission before going out. Ellzey sent the letter at the request of city commissioners, who wanted certain issues claried before they moved forward with attempting to secure an ALS non-transport license from the county. But the wording of the letter was never screened by the board and Commissioner Teresa Barron questioned the commitments Ellzey made in the letter that were never voted on by the board. Ellzey said the city “shall agree to fund all ALS services with only city monies and not with county funds.” Barron wondered if the city should be making a commitment to fund ALS entirely with city funds. Commissioner Betty Walker said the county has already said it won’t pay for ALS. “ey’re not going to pay for it. If they don’t, By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterDeputy Chieand Fire Chief Gene Stockman Monday said the county appears to be holding the city taxpayers of Chieand hostage by refusing to license an Advanced Life Support non-transport truck for the city even though the county has enough money to provide the service. Stockman said he was basing his conclusions on comments made by Mayor Teal Pomeroy at the last city commission meeting when he said he had talked to three county commissioners and they indicated the county would be willing to take over Chieand Fire Rescue and supply all the needed paramedics for an ALS nontransport truck if Chieand would allow the county re assessment to be levied inside the city. e deputy chief said the county has made it clear that county re assessment money can’t be used to provide ALS service to the city, which means the county must have ample funding from other sources if it believes it can provide ALS non-transport to the city. But he said the county apparently will only provide the money if can take over operation of the city re department. Stockman said as far as he is concerned, the county is holding Chieand taxpayers hostage by refusing to give Chieand ALS non-transport even though it has enough funding to provide the service. “I feel they are holding the taxpayers of Sexual Predator Change of Address NoticationOn May 8, 2015 Billy Joe Patterson registered as a Sexual Predator with the Levy County Sheri’s Oce.

Elder admitted the gun was his and that he and his daughter had been driving roads looking for deer to put meat in the freezer.

Ocasio said he understood and wanted to go to trial. He has been jailed for more than two years. Ocasio was visiting Crab Fest on April 27, 2013 when investigators say he red a pistol into a crowd of people and killed Barry Barney instead of his intended target. Barney died soon after. Other bystanders were struck by bullets. Investigators issued a warrant for Ocasio’s arrest. e following day, Ocasio was seated on the front passenger side of a Cadillac Escalade parked at the gas pumps of an Ocala convenience store when a marked Marion County Sheri’s Oce patrol car pulled up behind the Escalade to investigate a tip that the car was stolen. Ocasio was seated within arm’s reach of the pistol used to kill Barney. Levy County Sheri’s deputies were called to the convenience store gas station when they learned Ocasio was a passenger in the car. When Investigator Rob Bowers opened the glove box he found a pistol that was later determined to be the gun used in the murder of Barney at the 2013 Crab Fest. Ballistic tests proved it was the murder weapon. Defense Attorney Michael Hines argued that investigators were acting on a false tip about a stolen car when they detained the Escalade and its occupants, among them Ocasio, on suspicions that later proved untrue. e car wasn’t stolen. Hines argued that the search and detention of the car was illegal without the ocer acting on credible evidence that a crime occurred. Prosecutor Brian Kramer said the tip was more compelling than someone simply calling over the phone to provide a tip. He said a car drove at a high rate of speed into the gas station where Marion County Deputy Scott Confessore was parked, stopped and hurried over to him on foot. e tipster pointed at the Escalade and told the deputy it was stolen. e tipster and the woman driving the car then drove way without identifying themselves. Confessore drove over to the gas station across the street and parked behind the Escalade. Hines argued that even though Levy County Sheri’s Investigator Jay Crooms had received oral and written permission from the Escalade’s owner, Tim Clark, to search the vehicle it wasn’t enough to justify entering the car and searching for evidence without a warrant signed by a judge. He contended that Ocasio’s right to privacy as a passenger in the vehicle had been violated and the court should suppress evidence found in the search including the weapon and two cell phones. Crooms said as soon as he saw the pistol in the glove compartment he immediately called o the search, impounded the Escalade and began the process of asking for a search warrant. Prosecutors argued that because investigators obtained written and oral consent from car owner Tim Clark to search the vehicle, they were allowed to open up the car and begin looking for evidence. ey said Crooms went the extra mile and obtained a search warrant after nding a gun in the glove compartment. Hines also contended Ocasio was illegally detained by Confessore and other ocers who were called to the scene. Hines said the deputy prevented Ocasio from stepping out of the vehicle. Confessore said he hadn’t been told at that point whether the car was stolen and he needed to control the passengers of the vehicle until he could run the tag number and driver’s licenses of the occupants and determine their identities. e defense attorney said the anonymous tip didn’t give Confessore the right to drive next door to a gas station to determine if the Escalade was in fact a stolen vehicle. He suggested that Confessore could have made up the story because there was no evidence to prove the tipster actually existed. “is information is very low on the scale of reliability,” Hines said. Davis took a dierent view. “I do think there this was more than the usual anonymous tip,” Davis said. “ere was specic information. He hurried up and stopped, and jumped out to tell the ocer.” Davis said he found Confessore’s account of the man hurrying to give him the tip to be truthful, noting, “I think someone contacted him.” Davis said he wasn’t concerned that this may have been a temporary detention. “I’m not nding this was done in bad faith,” he said. Davis said he believes Levy County sheri’s investigators obtained the search warrant for legitimate reasons. “I do not think the ocers did the search warrant because they felt there was a problem with consent,” Davis said. Davis noted that when ocers saw the gun in the glove compartment they stopped the search and sought a search warrant. Crooms testied that he knew he was dealing with something very serious and called o the search. He then sought a search warrant.

After the close of the re chief’s meeting, Knowles met privately with MacDonald and Lake in a dierent building. In the re chiefs meeting, Knowles said he had an interest in starting an online Fireghter 1 class for rst time reghters, but he wanted to know if there would be any interest among the re chiefs. e reaction was mixed. MacDonald said he has some in his department who are focused and would do well with an online class, but for others he would need to get a cattle prod to encourage them to complete the online course. Robinson said there are denite advantages to an online course, but the disadvantage is the students don’t get the oneon-one contact with the instructors and don’t have the benet of talking about what they are doing in a class setting with other students. Stegall wasn’t sure he liked the concept. “What you lose is the experience. I’m not opposed to it, but I have reservations,” he said. Fireghter 1 candidates must complete 206 hours of training, which sometimes eliminates people who work fulltime or don’t want to leave their families for the classes. “If he has got a wife or a girlfriend, that ain’t gonna work,” Harris said. Knowles said he would send out an inquiry to re chiefs to gauge their level of interest before he decides on the Fireghter 1 online course. He needs a consensus. Stegall said all the re departments could teach the course with a certied instructor or they could do it with the county. Knowles created the re chiefs meeting to discuss issues with the departments and damp down rumors. At the previous meeting, Stegall knocked down a rumor that he was planning to take over Department of Public Safety operations. Fire chiefs at one time met as a Fire Advisory Board and made recommendations on county re funding directly to the Levy County Commission. When the Department of Public Safety was created by the county commission in 2011, the county began requiring re chiefs to submit budget requests directly to Knowles and the Fire Advisory Board was disbanded. Knowles examines the requests and makes recommendations to the county commission. e Department of Public Safety is not popular among all re chiefs in the county. Some chiefs resent having to submit their budgets to Knowles for review and they believe Knowles and the county commission are wielding too much centralized political power and using county re funding as leverage to force compliance with Knowles’ directives. e re chiefs meeting once a month is not a replacement for Fire Advisory Board. e meetings are intended to improve communications with re chiefs and address rumors that may be circulating.Rural Fire Department near Inglis Closes its Doors continued from page 1A Levy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles in the dark shirt at the head table and his assistant, Alesha Arnold, meet with re chiefs on May 9.

Photo by Terry Witt. hospital and medical oce center have agreed to pay the additional $219,351, plus provide the clearing, excavation and base layout for the roadway worth about $60,000. Mike Belew of CBS Real Estate Group, the private development company nancing the project, sweetened the deal by promising to place $250,000 in escrow to cover unexpected costs involved in constructing infrastructure for the hospital plus an additional $20,000 in escrow for maintenance. e money won’t be placed in a local bank. e roadway will have an entrance and exit o County Road 320, but the medical facility needed a second exit in case trac was blocked by an accident. City sta worked with the medical group and came up with a plan to extend the road to NE 23rd Ave., which passes between O’Reilly’s Auto Parts and Taco Bell and empties onto U.S. 19. Ellzey said city sta attempted to convince the Florida Department of Transportation of the need for an additional trac light at that location a block south of the Wal-Mart entrance, but DOT has agreed instead to redesign the intersection to direct trac north and south to trac lights instead of allowing them to cross the highway. e hospital and medical oce complex will be constructed on 20 acres behind the Wal-Mart Supercenter. e main risk faced by commissioners is that the CDBG economic development block grant requires the creation of 42 low to moderate income jobs in the hospital and medical center over a two-year period. e city would be responsible for paying the state $34,999 for every job not created. Franklin Schupp of Ameris Heathcare, the company that will own the hospital said he didn’t see a problem with creating the 42 new jobs in a freshly constructed hospital and medical oce center. He anticipates a groundbreaking ceremony by November of this year, at which time construction would begin. e hospital would be substantially complete within a year. e medical oce center would probably open sooner. Belew said his company is careful about how it invests its money and always does its due diligence in advance before taking on a project of this size. “We’re patient people. We’ve been around for 20 years. We’ve done our due diligence and we think we can be successful here,” he said. Belew said 80 percent of the projects his company builds are medically related. Recent projects are an FBI oce (not medical obviously) and a VA outpatient center in Jacksonville. Stephanie Tarry, senior vice president of business development for the US operations of Nueterra, a healthcare management company involved in the project, was also present for the discussions. Asked if the new hospital and medical center would pay property taxes, Belew said 90 percent of all the company’s projects pay property taxes. e public facilities, of course, are exempt, but the Suwannee River Community Hospital will be private. e Suwannee River Community Hospital will serve Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy Counties. Chieand ocials have been working to secure a hospital for more than 20 years. Doug King, a Chieand realtor and the man who has put in the most miles on the road and time and eort in securing a hospital, told commissioners the hospital would unquestionably trigger more economic growth in the community, but he said the growth can’t come without infrastructure. Belew said he didn’t foresee any problems with developing the site, although he acknowledged there would be challenges, including sinkholes.

It won’t be long now before hipster actresses and cable news progressives are Instagramming themselves wearing this latest entry in radical chic to show their “solidarity.” Here’s what Assata taught me: e left’s sick fetish for cop-killers is still going strong after four decades of violence, bloodshed, bigotry and excuses. e timing couldn’t be more blood-boiling. As the relatives, friends and colleagues of NYPD Ocer Brian Moore, 25, prepare to bury their hero on Friday after he was brazenly shot in the face this weekend by a thug with a long rap sheet and a deep hatred of police, Assata’s army remains as militant as ever. “Assata” is Assata Shakur, a.k.a. Joanne Chesimard. Forty-two years ago this week, the radical black leader shot and killed New Jersey State Trooper Werner Foerster execution-style during a trac stop. e gunght also left her brother-in-law, Black Liberation Army leader Zayd Malik Shakur, dead. At the time, the BLA had been tied to the murders of more than 10 police ocers across the country. Before Chesimard’s shootout, the BLA had ambushed two pairs of NYPD ocers in a 48-hour spree, killing two of them; murdered another cop in Atlanta; and executed another pair of NYPD ocers in 1972. Chesimard, Zayd Shakur and another member were wanted for questioning in the murder of two of those cops when they were stopped. Just as New York City has endured the targeted assassinations of three ocers (Moore, Wenjian Liu and Rafael Ramos) in the past ve months by vengeful black assailants -plus the hatchet jihad attack last October that wounded Ocer Kenneth Healey in the head and slashed Ocer Joseph Meeker in the arm -the nation endured a “terror and chaos” campaign by the BLA aimed at “assassinating law enforcement ocers” between 1968 and 1973 and again in 1981. Chesimard was convicted and sentenced to life in 1977, but escaped from prison two years later with help from violent leftwing accomplices. Chesimard’s colleague, BLA killer Tyrone Rison, admitted to participating in a series of armored-car robberies, including a $250,000 heist in the Bronx in June 1981, which left a Brink’s guard dead. Rison also confessed to taking part in the planning of the Rockland County, N.Y., $1.6 million Brink’s robbery by leftwing domestic terrorists in October 1981. Police ocers Waverly Brown and Edward O’Grady and Brink’s guard Peter Paige were murdered during the siege. Chesimard’s brother, Jeral Wayne Williams (a.k.a. Mutulu Shakur), was the convicted ringleader of the group responsible for murdering those law enforcement ocers; he also masterminded Chesimard’s escape. His release is set for February 2016. Chesimard has lived comfortably in Cuba ever since her escape thanks to the generosity of Fidel Castro. e cop-killer diva has been hailed by rappers Jay-Z and Common -and now she’s a hoodie heroine. Assata is, plain and simple, a domestic terrorist who represents lawless hatred of the police. ere has been no peace for the families of those whose loved ones sacriced their lives on the front lines. Where is their justice? Despite impassioned pleas for Assata Shakur’s extradition by law enforcement leaders in New York and New Jersey, the Obama White House has done nothing. Nada. e inaction speaks for itself. And his bland words of support for the police ring hollower than a hula hoop. Before chumming it up with David Letterman and raising cash for the DNC on Monday, the president took a few seconds to pay obligatory tribute to fallen ocer Brian Moore. He and his fellow cops, Obama mumbled, “deserve our gratitude and our prayers, not just today, but every day.” Stu it. By his inaction on long-festering anti-police vigilantism, it’s clear which side the social-justice warrior in chief stands on: the side of Assata, Castro and the cop-hating mob.

COPYRIGHT 2015 CREATORS.COM What Assata Taught MeFundamental Change Begins and Ends in SchoolBy Kathy Hillarde following is an excerpted compendium from an article explaining the fundamental change in a person leading to a fundamental change in all the students he has educational power over. e interlocking of the person who is gifted to teach, with the school system and its board, with the government entities or private/charitable sources of funds to provide the infrastructure, with the writers of the curriculum for teaching, and most of all the Parents of the students in America – all need to work together. When a part of the system is missing, and no one is watching or recognizing the detour in the road – the innocent students are the ones to suer. is is about one of the detours – the curriculum and its authors. Yes, we need a higher standard based on knowledge of truth, not color of skin. All colors can learn. But, what are we teaching – truth or ction. It would take a book to mention it all but I am hoping that a few eye-opening words and pictures will spur parents on to be ACTIVELY on guard for what your child is learning and participate in the process. Teachers need us to protect their creative talent to teach, without the government taking over the process and forcing a curriculum with a built-in teaching ‘method.’ School board members need parents armed with knowledge and backbone to help them make the right decisions for children. We can have a community that decides what is best for our children and yet maintain a freedom to learn as we see it t for our child – public education, private education and homeschooling. All should knit together. e problem we are coming across is a push by some to deviate from the facts of history and education which means the tapestry is not getting woven together in harmony, it is being torn and shredded. Our job now is to patch it – together. One of the issues to look at is our curriculum authors. We are now observing the eect of those that could not change this country by anarchy, bombing and violence and decided to go ‘underground’ and become educators and authors of ‘curriculum’ books and programs. One of those is Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground group who terrorized America in the ‘60s. Mary Grabar penned an article in 2012 which is excerpted below to explain how some of the threads of the tapestry of education are snarled up. Terrorist Professor Bill Ayers and Obama’s Federal School CurriculumBy Mary Grabar — September 21, 2012 ree years after the Department of Education announced a contest called Race-to-the-Top for $4.35 billion in stimulus funds, some parents, teachers, governors, and citizen and public policy groups are coming to an awful realization about the likely outcomes: A national curriculum called Common Core Regionalism, or the replacement of local governments by federally appointed bureaucrats A leveling of all schools to one, low national standard, and a redistribution of education funds among school districts An eective federal tracking of all students e loss of the option of avoiding the national curriculum and tests through private school and home schoolWorking behind the scenes, implementing these policies and writing the standards are associates from President Obama’s community organizing days. In de facto control of the education component is Linda Darling-Hammond, a radical left-wing educator and close colleague of William “Bill” Ayers, the former leader of the communist terrorist Weather Underground who became a professor of education and friend of Obama’s. When these dangerous initiatives are implemented, there will be no escaping bad schools and a radical curriculum by moving to a good suburb, or by home schooling, or by enrolling your children in private schools. How was it that 48 governors entered Race-to-the-Top without knowing outcomes? It was one of the many “crises” exploited by the Obama administration. While the public was focused on a series of radical moves coming in rapid-re succession, like the health care bill and proposed trials and imprisonment of 9/11 terrorists on domestic soil, governors, worried about keeping school doors open, signed on. Many politicians and pundits praised Obama on this singular issue, repeating the ocial rhetoric about raising standards. It stands to reason, though, that education policies would be consistent with Obama’s agenda. After all, one of his most controversial associations, highlighted during the 2008 presidential campaign, was with an education professor, Bill Ayers. As a terrorist, he and his wife, Bernardine Dohrn, had dedicated their Prairie Fire Manifesto to Sirhan Sirhan, the convicted assassin of Robert F. Kennedy. It was for this reason that Kennedy’s son, Christopher Kennedy, chairman of the University of Illinois board of trustees, voted against bestowing “professor emeritus” status on Ayers after he retired. “I intend to vote against conferring the honoric title of our university whose body of work includes a book dedicated in part to the man who murdered my father, Robert F. Kennedy,” he said. Back then, the former bomber and co-founder of the communist terrorist Weather Underground organization was Distinguished Professor of Education at the University of Illinois at Chicago. e two had worked together closely from the year Ayers hosted a political launch party for Obama, in 1995, to 2002. At the Chicago Annenberg Challenge, “the brainchild of Bill Ayers,” they funneled more that $100 million to radical groups like ACORN and Gamaliel, which used the funds to promote radical education. is initiative was also promoted by Arne Duncan, now Secretary of Education. Also as board members of the Woods Fund, Ayers and Obama channeled money to ACORN and the Midwest Academy When initial White House visitor logs were released in 2009, the administration quickly dismissed speculations about visits by “William Ayers.” at was a dierent William Ayers Americans were told. Blogger and law professor, Stephen Diamond, noted that no one asked why Ayers would even be in Washington, D.C. It turns out that Ayers was one of three keynote speakers at a conference sponsored by the Renaissance Group, which, according to Diamond, was dedicated to problems of poverty, diversity, and multiculturalism—and the inability of white teachers to deal with them. e other two speakers were Secretary of Education Duncan and U.S. Under Secretary of Education, Martha Kanter. At this three-day conference, Mr. Nevin Brown of Achieve, Inc., made a presentation on the “Common Core State Standards” Initiative. A recipient of the largesse of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Achieve would become a key player in revamping education under Common Core. Hence, Ayers was a major speaker at a conference that was involved in developing a new national curriculum. If Achieve has ever disavowed Ayers or his teaching methods, we could nd no evidence of this on the public record. e notion of a “Common Core” seems to recall E.D. Hirsch’s traditionalist Common Knowledge curriculum, which emphasizes the need for students to understand America’s cultural and national heritage. But Common Core is not that at all. Many have been fooled, and an estimated 80% of the public does not even know about Common Core. Common Core is part of an eort to implement regionalism, the replacement of local governments by regional boards of federally appointed bureaucrats, who in turn are beholden to international bodies. Regionalism will eliminate the freedom parents now have in choosing neighborhoods with good schools because tax funds will be distributed equally. ere will be no escape in home schooling or private schools either, because the curriculum will follow national tests. Students will be tracked through mandatory state records that will then be accessible to Washington bureaucrats. Ultimately, all students will be subject to education mandates implemented by Obama’s radical cronies.Not Letting A Crisis Go To Waste“Race to the Top” required that states commit to yet-tobe-written Common Core standards in math and English/ Language Arts (ELA). Today, Common Core has the support of Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, and was included in the platform of the Democratic National Convention. It was embraced by former Republican Florida Governor, Jeb Bush, much to the consternation of Tea Party groups, who see this as an unconstitutional federal takeover of education. e Republican Party is divided. Emmett McGroarty and Jane Robbins, in their white paper “Controlling Education from the Top: Why Common Core Is Bad for America,” describe the pressure and sleight-of-hand that led governors to sign onto a commitment that was then changed before the ink had fully dried. ey reveal that rather than being a state-led reform initiative, as touted, the new standards were written by a few well-connected, but non-qualied, education entrepreneurs. But it doesn’t take a conspiracy theorist to realize that Common Core will ultimately dictate the curriculum. Two consortia of states (SBAC and PARCC) have been given $360 million in federal funds to create national Common Core-aligned tests and “curriculum models.” Well-connected companies, such as Educational Testing Service (ETS) and the multinational textbook company Pearson, are in competition to design the test. e feds’ announcement echoes Common Core’s emphasis on personalized learning and leveling of achievement through technology and collaboration (the “21st century skills”). Common Core emphasizes “in-depth” reading of short passages, rather than long ctional or historical narratives. e Publisher’s Criteria reveal that a focus on short texts will equalize outcomes. e strategy of gathering students into groups to collaborate on short passages ensures that no one advances beyond others. We are inserting a narrative from a school in Newberry for you to see how this “informational reading” can be used to distort not only history, but social character and it is not continued to page 5A

It was part of a story in a “cause and eect” lesson Tim Marden’s son was assigned at Newberry Elementary in northcentral Florida: One day some time ago, a boy named Jack was doing his homework. His mother began to examine Jack’s textbook. A puzzled look clouded her face. She noticed that the book was worn and missing a dozen pages. e next day, she told the school’s principal that Jack deserved better materials. He agreed, but said that only schools in white districts got new texts. Schools in African American areas got old, damaged books. So Jack’s mother met with a lawyer. ey led a legal case, claiming unequal and unfair treatment toward Jack. A judge decided that Jack’s mother was right. e board of education agreed to revise the system for providing materials to schools in the district.” “Marden told eBlaze he asked his child’s teacher about the worksheet, and the teacher agreed it was troubling and “developmentally inappropriate.” Alachua County Public Schools spokeswoman Jackie Johnson told eBlaze the exercise comes from the state’s Florida Standards, which she described as ”pretty much Common Core standards with some changes.” She did not comment about the “appropriateness” of the example used. Johnson said the goal of the unit is for students to “understand that the right of equal opportunity is or was protected by the Civil Rights Act, integration and changing laws; Martin Luther King Jr.; [and] the U.S. Constitution.” “Any parent, student or sta member who objects to an instructional material may also request that the material be reevaluated at the school level, then at the district level,” Johnson said. Marden said he has no objection to his child learning about racism, but said the lesson should be more specic rather than the “obtuse nature” of the worksheet.“It’s just a made-up story, it lacks concrete, fact-based information, ” he said. “We have so much history, why not use it?”Pearson Education, the publisher of the lesson, did not respond to requests for comment from eBlaze.”Follow Mike Opelka (@Stuntbrain) on TwitterBill Ayers In e ClassroomIn 2008, attention was focused on Bill Ayers’ past as a terrorist; this, Stephen Diamond maintains, missed the real damage, which was political. Diamond, a social democrat, calls Ayers a “neo-Stalinist,” in line with Fidel Castro and Hugo Chavez, whose country Ayers visited to make speeches about education being the “motor force of revolution.” According to Diamond, Neo-Stalinism is an “authoritarian form of politics which attempts to control and build social institutions to impose state control of the economy, politics and culture on the general population.” Ayers and his allies used the “critical policy area” of education, and through four aims: “local school councils,” small schools, social justice teaching, and payment of reparations through education spending. Local school councils and “small schools” are eorts to escape modern schools that, in Ayers’ estimation, “are all about sorting and punishing, grading and ranking and certifying” and demanding “obedience and conformity.” Ayers’ numerous, supposedly scholarly, books and articles are lled with such hyperbole that depicts demands of the regular school day, like objective tests and class periods, as evidence of a police state. Former Senior Policy Advisor to the Department of Education and member of the California Mathematics Framework Committee, Ze’ev Wurman, testied that the Common Core overlooks basic skills, lowers college readiness standards, and oers “verbose and imprecise guidance,” while dictating that geometry be taught by an experimental method that was tested on Soviet math prodigies in the 1950s—and failed. In English classes, teachers will reduce the amount of time spent teaching their subject of literature to only 50 percent, and then to 30 percent in high school, a move criticized by education reform professor Sandra Stotsky. Replacing literature will be “informational texts” like nonction books, computer manuals, IRS forms, and original documents, like court decisions and the Declaration of Independence. Documents, like the Declaration, however, are taught in a manner that downplays their signicance. Overall, students will be losing a sense of a national and cultural heritage that is acquired through a systematic reading of classical literature and study of history.e Role of Bill Ayers “Pal” Linda DarlingHammondStanley Kurtz, in his latest book, Spreading the Wealth, maintains that a nationalized curriculum is part of an eort to replace local governments with regional boards, who would disburse local tax dollars equally among school districts. Once all schools are the same—with the same curriculum and the same funding—people will no longer have the incentive to move to good suburbs. While Obama’s community organizing mentor, Mike Kruglik, implements the regionalism advocated by the Gamaliel Foundation through Building One America, Ayers’ close associate, Linda Darling-Hammond, exercises “de facto control” through education. Both Ayers and Darling-Hammond were leaders in the small schools movement. She has published in a collection edited by Ayers. Both have been advocates of ending funding disparities between urban and suburban schools, ending standardized testing, and attacking “white privilege.” She has been a board member of CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning), a group housed at the University of Illinois at Chicago, that provides studies of, and services for, Emotional Intelligence in schools—but really emotional manipulation aimed at making students global citizens. Both also failed to improve schools or test scores. Ayers’ Annenberg Challenge failed miserably. e school created by Darling-Hammond, Stanford New Schools, which targeted low-income Hispanic and black students, had the distinction of making California’s list of the lowest-achieving ve percent. Darling-Hammond is in charge of content specications at the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC), which received $176 million of federal Race-to-the-Top money to develop Common Core testing. Common Core thus promises to eliminate the idea of a common core of knowledge—through the privileging of leftist “informational texts” and material presented in a scattershot manner. e national and cultural identity that is conveyed through a wide and interconnected exposure to literary works from Mother Goose to Shakespeare will be undermined. While proponents tout a close, critical reading of short texts, or excerpts, the truth is that the approach lends itself to innite interpretations wildly o the mark. e approach— where uninformed groups of students speculate about “original documents”—is intended to make them radically skeptical of any historical legacy.e Gates FoundationMcGroarty and Robbins note that the Gates Foundation “has poured tens of millions of dollars into organizations that have an interest, nancial or otherwise, in the implementation of Common Core.” While the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gives to worthy causes like ghting malaria and HIV infection, the foundation’s 2010 IRS documents reveal funding of other, mostly leftist, causes. Gifts went to the Tides Fund, and Planned Parenthood and other “reproductive health” eorts. In education, Gates has given money to teachers unions, La Raza schools, and a school named after Caesar Chavez. Gates’ eorts are aligned with the federal government’s, of making reparations, as it were, by allocating money to lowincome and minority students and making them “college-ready.” Such allocations are quite frequent in the tax return. But critics worry that equalization will be achieved by lowering standards. None of the education non-prots funded by Gates are dedicated to raising standards through a rigorous, traditional curriculum, or by promoting Western or American principles. As Heather Crossin and Jane Robbins point out, realistically, the idea of universal college-readiness can be met only by lowering standards. Some Common Core advocates have admitted that this is the case.

Whether by reading it with words or acting it out physically the result is still the same – Anarchy leading to a ‘fundamental change’ in society and its government. Why do we want to change what for 200 years has been the best government in the world? Not perfect, but the best. e schools in America are now and have been for some time the catalyst in what you are watching on the news today. e brainwashing begins there.

Her letter added that the city would allow the county to inspect its re department accounting records annually to insure all monies received from the county were spent only on BLS/ re responder costs as allowed under the county Emergency Medical Service and Fire special assessments. City commissioners took no action on Barron’s comments. ey will wait until the county responds to the Ellzey letter. e Journal was the rst to report that county ocials were refusing to allow the city to use county re funding for operation of an ALS non-transport truck. Half of the city’s re budget comes from county re funding. City ocials originally thought they could use county re funding for ALS because Chieand Fire Rescue already uses the funds to provide Basic Life Support medical calls. But the county said ALS is dierent than BLS. Mayor Teal Pomeroy said he was told the county might be exible on one issue. An ALS analysis prepared by a county commission consultant indicated the county would be deducting $66,920 of county re funding the city receives if the city operates an ALS non-transport truck, but Pomeroy said he was told the county might be willing to compromise on the issue. One of the questions Ellzey asked in her letter was whether the county would reconsider reducing county funding to the city by $66,920. She also asked the county to clarify its position on paying for the replacement or exchange of drugs used at the scene by Chieand paramedics working on an ALS nontransport truck. Ellzey also asked the big question. Is the county serious about licensing an ALS truck for Chieand? “Finally the City asks the County to state its willingness to allow the City to move forward with the implementation of ALS in Chieand should we develop the nancial means necessary to fund all the personnel and equipment required by the Medical Director to fully implement the new service,” Ellzey wrote. e letter Ellzey sent to the county two weeks ago was not included in the city’s agenda Monday. She gave copies to commissioners, but did not include them in the agenda packet sent to the Journal. e Journal questioned why the letter, which is a public record, was not made part of the agenda package.County Still Sitting on City Letter Asking for ALS Answers continued from page 1A Chieand hostage if they don’t do that,” Stockman said. Pomeroy said his statement at the last meeting was not that he had talked to three commissioners, but that he had talked to the county. He said county ocials told him if the city would allow the county re assessment to be imposed inside the city limits the county would be willing to take over Chieand Fire Rescue and provide all the paramedics needed to man an ALS nontransport. e mayor switched gears in the middle of his statement and indicated that if there was no city run re department he wouldn’t have to deal with the politics of the re department or worry about someone running against him. “Take the politics out of it” Pomeroy said. Pomeroy is still angry that three city reghters and a reghter’s son signed a statement last year indicating the mayor used a racial slur directed at two black incoming city commissioners. He denied making the statement and apparently felt the re department opposed his candidacy in last year’s election. He said he doesn’t think the city re department should be dabbling in politics, but if that’s what they want to do, “have at it.” Stockman returned to the original subject and said it is apparent that the county has ample funds to pay for ALS non-transport and that city taxpayers are being held hostage.Chieand Deputy Fire Chief Says City Taxpayers Being Held Hostage continued from page 1A Fundamental Change Begins and Ends in School continued from page 4A

By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterTwo Chieand students who are part of a statewide youth tobacco prevention program convinced Chieand City Commissioners Monday to adopt a resolution encouraging local retailers to voluntarily stop the display and sale of avored tobacco products. Elena Richardson of the Chieand High School Students Working Against Tobacco and Emma Ronchelli of Chieand Middle School’s SWAT team said Chieand was the only city that had yet to adopt a resolution. Commissioners quickly voted unanimously to approve the resolution. e SWAT members said internal tobacco industry documents released during the Master Settlement Agreement of 1998 revealed that fruit-avored and candy-avored tobacco products were created by the tobacco industry intentionally to target teens. Studies have found that teens use these avored products at rates three times higher than adults. ey said avored tobacco has actually become the “starter product” of choice among children and teenagers. is is an especially important since 85 percent of new tobacco user’s start between the ages of 12 and 17, which is before the legal age to purchase tobacco. e two SWAT team members passed around a plastic container full of new tobacco products in brightly-colored packages that mimic actual candy products. Some of the products they said, such as snus, do not provide information indicating the package contains tobacco. is can lead to confusion among store clerks, parents and teachers. ese products are intentionally sold in retail outlets where teenagers most frequently shop. Levy SWAT clubs conducted store surveillance in 2012 and found that 60 percent of tobacco retailers within three miles of middle and high schools sold avored tobacco. e SWAT team members said tobacco is a gateway drug for teenagers, leading to increased use of alcohol and other drugs like marijuana. Retailers also sell fruit-avored and candyavored blunt wraps, which are tobacco products designed to be stued with marijuana to create marijuana “cigars” or “blunts.” Electronic cigarettes in a variety of fruity avors are also gaining popularity among teenagers because their use can go virtually undetected by parents and school administrators due to the lack of physical smoke. ese fruity avored products are placed prominently and advertised heavily in convenience stores, the girls added. Passing the resolution demonstrated that the City of Chieand takes its commitment to protect the health and safety of the entire community seriously, “including Levy County’s youngest and most vulnerable citizens,” the girls said. e girls said the Levy County Commission, Williston City Council, Bronson Town Council, Inglis Town Commission, Otter Creek City Commission and Cedar Key City Commission have adopted this same resolution in taking a stand against tobacco companies targeting kids.Chieand Students Successfully Push to Discourage Sale of Flavored Tobacco Products Elena Richardson and Emma Ronchelli address the Chieand City Commission Monday about the need to oppose avored tobacco.

8A Log Cabin Quilterse Log Cabin Quilters met ursday, May 7th at the Levy County Museum. e ladies had nished the purple quilt in the frame, we thought. We were rolling the quilt back to the center, just in case we really weren’t nished. Large safety pins were found on the unnished half of the quilt which meant we were not done. At least we have a little more time for Cathy and Diane to nish their quilt tops made from donated squares and Ailine will also have time to make her watermelon quilt top. Greg and the boys were out from Lancaster. ey keep the place looking great. anks Lancaster. We have a long-arm machine at the Museum. It isn’t computerized so it’s just right for us to learn a lot of things. If it isn’t threaded correctly then the bottom side is really messed up. If the thread breaks a lot then that’s another problem. We still don’t know what the orange button on the machine does. Did you know that you can use chalk dust on a template that will allow you to make a decorative design on the quilt. Hopefully Ann will bring her mom’s chalk dust ursday so we can experiment. Yes, the rocking chairs are turned so you can observe along with us. Come out and watch or help us learn. Janie, Lois, Ann, Alice Mae and Marie were hoping the quilt was done. We’re at the halfway part. In a few more weeks, it will be nished. Evelyn is busy hand-quilting this baby quilt. By Terry WittSenior Sta Writere W.O. Beauchamp, Jr. Law Day Fish Fry for Levy and Gilchrist County law enforcement ocers, politicians and state police ocers was held along the banks of the Suwannee River Friday in Fowlers Blu. Levy County Undersheri Brett Beauchamp said his father, the late W.O. Beauchamp, Jr. wanted to set aside a time every year when law enforcement ocers could get together and have a good time when they weren’t working. e Beauchamp family riverside home is always the site of the traditional sh fry. e sh fry began as Ishie Day decades ago by courthouse custodian Norwood Ishie. Judge Beauchamp took over the celebration back in the days of Red Ribbon Week and used the sh fry to honor members of the law enforcement and judicial community. e judge would send law enforcement speakers into public schools. Volunteers mostly from the Levy County Sheri’s Oce fried 465 pounds of mullet for a crowd estimated to be in the neighborhood of 200 people. Cheese grits, baked beans, hush puppies and dessert were served with tea. Sheri Bobby McCallum was joined at the sh fry by former Sheri Johnny Smith and former Sheri Ted Glass. Bubba Castell, a well known gure at the courthouse and in law enforcement circles, made an appearance and enjoyed the mullet dinner. Beauchamp, an attorney and the undersheri, grew up around the sh fry his father used to honor law enforcement ocers. “It was always a good time. I’ve always enjoyed it,” he said. e sh fry typically attracts the largest number of people in election years, but this year was an exception. Levy County Judge James T. Brown was in charge of the event. He made certain law enforcement knew about the event.Law Day Fish Fry in Fowlers Blu Attracts Big Crowd Sheri Bobby McCallum, Public Defender Stacy Scott, Gilchrist County Sheri Bobby Schultz and Gilchrist County Judge Sheree Lancaster dish up fried mullet, cheese grits and hush puppies.

Langworthy’s Near Perfect Game Sends Williston to State Finals By Terry Witt Senior Sta WriterWilliston pitcher Austin Langworthy threw a no-hitter against Chieand Friday in the regional tournament and set the stage for Williston’s return to the state nals this week and the possibility of back-to-back state championships. Langworthy struck out 12 Chieand batters with a combination of high-speed fast balls mixed with o-speed pitches and curves to keep Chieand o the bases and cement a 2-0 win in seven innings. Senior Hadyn Cano, Langworthy’s catcher since their Little League days 10 years ago, said the game may rank as Langworthy’s best or perhaps his second best behind the seminal game of the state championship series in 2014. “He’s fun to coach,” said Coach Scott Hall. Hall added that the win represented an outstanding team eort. “Everybody was real focused and ready to go,” he said. Langworthy totaled six strikeouts in the rst three innings and Williston scored its only two runs in that time frame, with Langworthy scoring on a sacrice y by Cameron Coey and Cano scoring on a Tyler Moore hit in the third. e remainder of the game was a stando between the two teams. Chieand pitcher Zach Barker gave up just ve hits and threw the best inning of the game, sending three Williston batters to the dugout with strikeouts in the fourth inning. He also threw out Langworthy trying to steal second. Shortstop Chase Malloy made the tag. Indian Coach Kyle Parnell acknowledged that Langworthy had been hard on the Indians all year. He faced Chieand four times and won all four games. But Parnell said Barker did a great job of pitching too. “e great job about it; our guys got another shot at it next year,” Parnell said, reminding reporters that his entire team will return for the 2016 season. e Indians ended the season with a 17-7 record. Williston will lose seven seniors, but Hall said he has plenty of talent among the younger players and he expects to be competitive in 2016. Langworthy, who committed as a sophomore to play for the University of Florida, will return for his senior year in 2016. Williston, 26-2 going into the state nals, used the preseason to play Class 4A, 5A and 6A teams to prepare the team for the best they would face among Class 1A schools. Hall said the team does a devotional before each practice begins. ey prepare themselves for the possibility of losing. e pitcher closes the devotional by “giving all the glory to God.” Hall said they emphasize that it’s not about the individual players. Langworthy, speaking out of earshot of his coach when he was interviewed by reporters summed up a similar philosophy when asked what the secret was to winning Friday’s game. “e secret to winning the game was practice. Whatever happens in practice will roll into the game,” he said. Langworthy said everything in his arsenal of pitches was working for him against Chieand. He had good velocity on his fast ball. His curve was working as well as the change of speed pitches. “e ball jumped out of my hand good,” he said. Langworthy threw a no-hitter and barely missed a perfect game. An ineld error put Malloy on base late in the game. The regional champions enjoy the moment following their 2-0 win.

Bowers. Austin Langworthy’s deceptive delivery as a southpaw pitcher proved eective against Chieand. Third baseman Ryan Battle focuses on the batter. Chieand pitcher Zach Barker, a southpaw with a motion that hid the ball behind his body until the release, prepares to deliver the ball to home plate. Williston’s Austin Langworthy is tagged out by Chase Malloy as he attempts to steal second base.“e ball came in but she was out of position to make the tag on Takiya,” Weatherford said. London crossed home plate standing up. e game was over. Chieand had captured back-to-back state championships. Lauren Stalvey, Chieand’s ace pitcher last year and again this season, pitched in both the 6-1 semi-nal game victory over Bell and in the 3-2 win over Jay, the same team Chieand defeated last year for the state championship. e Lady Indians beat Jay 9-2 in 2014. e Chieand varsity girls have etched their name in the history books and added yet another softball emblem to the brick monument they share with Chieand High School football team in front of the school. e girls won state softball championships in 2014 and again in 2015. e boys won state football championships in 1961 and again in 1997. e girls only recently saw their state championship win in 2014 added to the brick monument. Weatherford said the girls are excited to be adding a second state title to the monument. All the starters on the team will return for next year’s run for a three-peat, a third attempt at a state championship. Chieand will lose only one senior who isn’t a starter. Two of the more remarkable aspects of Chieand’s win were the strong pitching of Stalvey in both state semi-nal championship games and the play of Tataneisha Barnes, the backup catcher who replaced injured starter Emily Hallman and played well. “She played like it was Emily,” Weatherford said. It is rare for a pitcher to play in both games of the state nals, but Weatherford said he knew Stalvey was strong enough to do the job. Great pitching is critical in fast-pitch softball. “I knew she had the power to do it,” he said. Weatherford also noted that it was Rolf who slapped a home run in last year’s state championship game against Jay that got the Indians charged up for the win. He said it was a team win. He said it took a team eort to beat the talented Jay team, but Chieand was better. “I went to bed smiling. I thought God is really smiling. e girls worked hard and it paid o,” Weatherford said. Weatherford postponed cancer surgery in order to coach in the state nals. He has a small patch of cancer on his kidney. Chieand nished 19-4 this season and rode the arm of Stalvey all the way. She returned to beat the four teams that had earlier defeated Chieand. Weatherford said she doesn’t throw pitches past opposing pitchers, but she moves the ball around on the plate and changes speed to keep batters o balance. “She doesn’t throw the fastest pitches, but she plays the corners and the o speed pitches,” he said. Weatherford said the hospitality in Vero Beach “was great.” He said the organizers were excited to have Chieand back. When the tournament ended, Chieand was treated to a parade through the downtown district. One other interesting aspect concerning the state nals is that both games started around 11:05 a.m. But Weatherford said his girls play with condence regardless of the time of day or night. “e girls were never over condent. ey didn’t overpower anyone. ey worked hard and played well,” he said.Chieand Girls Win Second Straight State Softball Championship continued from page 1A

I hated leaving her out in the cold like that, but there’s just been a stirring in my soul lately. Sometimes a man has got to do what a man’s got to do! It had been a long time since I’d done any courting, but let me tell you, this old dog still knows how to hunt. I slickered up real nice; put on my best Sunday go-to-meeting clothes, shaved, and sloshed myself with some of that fancy smelling water. I even ran over to the Kroger and picked up a dozen roses. I know, it all may sound old fashioned, but this was one pretty girl, and I wanted to make a lasting impression. I punched the front door bell feeling like a young school boy. Without delay, the door whisked open and a vision of loveliness stood before me, smiling coyly. Her beauty nearly stole my breath. I paused for an instant to pray she would be mine forever. My heart uttered as I gently took her by the hand. en, out of nowhere, my wife Angie jumped up and ruined the whole moment. “Remember Romeo, get her home by nine. She’s got school in the morning.” “Oh momma,” my daughter Kailey hued, “You’re just jealous because dad and I are going to Red Lobster!” It was true. Angie loves Red Lobster. For a ten year old, Kailey is a wonderful conversationalist. Her quirky sense of humor kept me laughing all the way to the restaurant. I had the low down on almost every student in her fth grade class by the time we arrived. Once there, I opened her car door and we strode hand in hand into that seafood lovers paradise. Kailey carried herself with such grace I was genuinely surprised when the waitress handed her a kid’s menu. “Ma’am,” I interrupted, “Could I get adult menu for my daughter?” It was the least I could do. Kailey deserved to have someone acknowledge the steps she had made toward maturity. However, being her rst time to order o of the adult menu, we had to send the waitress back twice before I nally broke it down. “Do you like sh?” She shook her head no. “Do you like shrimp?” Still no “Do you like seafood at all?” I implored. She crinkled her little nose and whispered, “I really just wanted to make mom jealous.” I had to laugh. at crazy girl! She ordered steak. It was good though. I should know. I ate most of it. Maybe we should wait a few more years before fully abandoning the kid’s menu. After dinner we went for ice-cream and stopped to shop at some of her favorite girly stores. I believe she really enjoyed herself. I was glad. I wanted the whole night to be about her. As we pulled into our drive I reached under the seat and pulled out a CD I had bought for her from an artist named Mark Harris. Along with it I had typed the lyrics to his song entitled “Find Your Wings”. It was framed nicely along with a picture of the two of us. e chorus reads: ‘I pray that God would ll your heart with dreams And that faith gives you the courage To dare to do great things I’m here for you whatever this life brings So let my love give you roots And help you nd your wings’ Kailey hugged me like she never wanted to let go. I pray she knows she never has to. But anyway I realize it was the Lord Jesus who put that stirring in my soul. He just loves all of his little girls so much. If you ladies only knew how special you are to Him! I’m thankful He’s teaching me to be a godly dad who’s a tangible reection of that love and care for my baby girl. Warning fellows, the bar will be set high for those of you who dare to one day come seeking my princess’ hand.

One of the participants focused on abortion, noting that since the 1973 Roe vs. Wade decision more than 55 million unborn babies have been “exterminated” by people who put their own selsh interests ahead of the child’s. A woman prayed for parents, asking God to be with parents and inspire them to teach their children to love God and submit to his will. She also prayed for the nation’s leaders as they make decisions for the country. One woman prayed that the United States remain a Christian nation. She prayed that the President would be a Christian “even though he doesn’t show it and doesn’t support Israel.” Another participant prayed for the Holy Spirit to enter the nation’s Capital and its governmental buildings “so freedom of religion will be preserved.” He prayed for schools and children, and that prayer return to public schools. Police Chief Robert Douglas said “We rule and reign in Jesus name. If you are for us who can be against us.” He said every knee should bend and every tongue should proclaim “You as Lord.” One of the nal participants prayed for a “spiritual awakening in the Church.” Turner closed by thanking everyone who participated. “We need to get as many people in the family as we can because time is short,” he said. Carol Davis sang the old spiritual, “Amazing Grace” to end the prayer event.National Day of Prayer Brings Christians Together Chieand residents form a circle holding hands as they bow for prayer.
