By Terry WittSenior Sta Writere Fowlers Blu Fire Station has experienced some of the same stang shortages as Yankeetown under the management of the Levy County Department of Public Safety. Promises by DPS Director David Knowles to provide full stang during the daytime hours at Fowlers Blu have been broken. e two best examples are a pair of recent wrecks along County Road 330 within the Fowler’s Blu re district. e Fowlers Blu Fire Department was dispatched but failed to respond to an airplane crash along County Road 330 on Aug. 17 and didn’t respond to a fatal car crash along County Road 330 on Sept. 20 that claimed the life of a young mother. Fire departments are called as rst responders to accident scenes. ey can render re aid or assist with extraction of crash victims before the ambulance arrives on the scene. In both instances, Knowles said there was no one working at the Fowlers Blu Fire Station on the day of the wrecks to provide coverage. Chieand Fire Rescue responded to the scene of both crashes. In a written response to a Journal inquiry, Knowles said the Department of Public Safety “makes every attempt to have a minimum of one (1) member assigned to each county re station for that 12 hour Knowles Edict Barring Press and Public from Fire Chiefs Meetings Draws Immediate RebukeBy Terry WittSenior Sta WriterLevy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles issued an order last week closing his monthly meetings with city re chiefs to the Press and members of the public, but his order triggered a boycott of the Oct. 1 meeting by two re chiefs who wanted a Journal reporter to continue covering the meetings. e Levy County Journal had been covering the meetings between Knowles and city re chiefs for months, but the Oct. 1 meeting, which was the rst to bar the public and Press, had scheduled discussions dealing with politically sensitive issues such as changing the formula for distribution of county re funding to city departments and changing city re district boundaries, as well as radio By Terry WittSenior Sta Writer e sponsor of a concert and mud bog at Bronson Speedway received county commission approval for a permit Tuesday and a reduced fee $2,730 to have a county ambulance and nontransport truck parked at the event. Commissioners also agreed to give Bronson Speedway the right to sell beer at one end of the race track property provided the beer drinkers don’t spill into the concert area where there may be children. e Country Music Fest/Mud Bog Races on Oct. 16 & 17 will include a country music concert on the ineld of the racetrack, magicians, fun for the kids and food and drink vendors, according to the county commission agenda. Levy County Department of Public Safety Director David Knowles proposed a total fee of $3,675 to provide one ambulance and a nontransport EMS truck for the two-day event. When concert promoter Robert Nichols, Jr. protested that the fee was too steep and he was being charged for hours the event wasn’t operating, Knowles oered to cut the fee for the non-transport truck in half, reducing the total fee to $2,730. In recent memory, there has never been such a public discussion at a county commission meeting about ambulance fees of this size for Chieand CAAA Needs Volunteers 6A Estate Sale and Jobs 7A Militarization of Police 5A Bronson Volleyball 1B Williston Football 1B Bronson Life Chain 8Bcontinued to page 8A continued to page 3A continued to page 8A continued to page 2A continued to page 8B continued to page 3A Royalty Crowned at Annual Williston Peanut FestivalBy Terry WittSenior Sta WriterEverything was coming up peanuts in Williston Saturday. ousands of people visited Heritage Park as part of the annual Williston Peanut Festival.

First runnerup for Baby Peanut King was Lian McCormick and second runnerup was Eli Alexander Schultz. By Terry WittSenior Sta WriterMost tourists who visit Cedar Key probably never see the booming clam industry that has developed on the island city, but it’s there and generating millions of dollars in farm revenue. Farmers in Cedar Key don’t plow the land or plant row crops. ey are aquaculture farmers who grow an underwater crop using the nutrient rich and clean waters near the island for their farm operations. Leslie Sturmer, shellsh aquaculture specialist at the Cedar Key Marine Field Station, spoke to the Chieand Rotary Club last week about the success of the clam industry in Cedar Key and its importance to the economy. Twenty years ago, when the state banned gillnet shing through a voter-approved statewide referendum, the shing industry in Cedar Key was decimated. Fishermen were left without a way to make a living. When the federal government oered to retrain sherman as clam farmers, many took advantage of the opportunity. A 2008 study concluded that the industry sold $19.9 million in wholesale clams, which generated an economic impact of $44.9 million in the region and 556 jobs were created. Sturmer said 1,500 acres of state-owned submerged lands are leased to clam farmers o Cedar Key. Of the 288 clam growers in the state, approximately 150 are located in Cedar Key. She said about 150 million clams are produced in the fertile waters o Cedar Key annually. e Inglis Triple Murder and Suicide Triggered by Marital Breakup By Terry WittSenior Sta Writerree people were murdered in Inglis last ursday when a man distressed over losing his wife went on a bloody rampage at his home near Town Hall and took his own life before investigators could arrest him. Sheri’s Lt. Scott Tummond said investigators entered the home after seeing Walter A. Tyson, 56, walk to a second story window and then vanish from sight. ey heard a gunshot and a loud thud, as though a body hit the oor. Investigators found the body of Tyson’s estranged wife of 30 years, Patricia Tyson, 54, lying in the kitchen. ey found Tyson on the oor of a second story bedroom. A 9mm pistol was lying near his body. A.380 caliber pistol was on his person. Scattered shell casing found on the front lawn and in the house indicated he red both weapons. Lying on the lawn of Tyson’s home, known as the “Old Mashburn House across the street from Town Hall,” were the bodies of Otis Ray Walter “Buzz” Terhune, patriot, Vietnam Veteran and Purple Heart recipient, was a hero and community xture in Inglis service agencies and politics. He died like he lived a hero and a man of integrity whose instinct to help others was more important than his own safety. Obituary on page 4BWalter “Buzz” Terhune was born in New Jersey to a military family on June 4, 1947. And he died a hero protecting the children of Inglis and Yankeetown on Oct. 1, 2015. Buzz, as he was fondly known, was a wounded Vietnam Veteran, serving our country proudly enduring three tours of duty, and leaving the Army with several Purple Hearts as a Second Lieutenant. He was a ercely patriotic man with a rich family history of service dating back to the American Revolution and forward. Buzz lived his life through example. He was involved in our community as a member of AmVets, VFW, e American Legion and a Lifetime Member of DAV. He was a regular xture at the Inglis Town Meetings and was involved with many of our Inglis and Yankeetown service groups helping in any way he could. A good steward of our community, Buzz was always ready to jump in and help make our towns better for everyone. He loved kids, especially his daughter Kendra, veterans, shing, nature, joking, his family and 30 year life partner, Rose Uzarski. If you asked Buzz how he was doing his favorite response was, “I'm not in jail, not in the hospital and not in a war zone I can't complain.” Local Patriot and Veteran Loses His Life Protecting Others Fowlers Blu Fire Department Fails to Reach Accident Scenes County Approves Mud Bog Concert with Beer Restrictions Aquaculture Specialist Tells Rotarians Clam Farming Big Industry in Cedar Key continued to page 8A

Perreault passed away at the scene. e Florida Highway Patrol investigated the wreck but had no information on the condition of the passenger.Knowles Edict Barring Press and Public from Fire Chiefs Meetings Draws Immediate Rebuke continued from page 1Acommunications, all involving controversy. “Someone is trying to hide something. I don’t like it one little bit,” said Cedar Key Fire Chief Robert Robinson, one of the chiefs who boycotted the Oct. 1 meeting when the Press and public were barred from attending. “I don’t know where this came from. We had no heads up until we received an email on the day of the meeting saying it was closed.” Williston Fire Chief Lamar Stegall, the other chief who boycotted the Oct. 1 chiefs meeting, said he served along with other city chiefs on the old re advisory board. He said the meetings were always open and in the Sunshine, but when Knowles took over as the DPS chief he disbanded the advisory board. He said now the same city chiefs must meet with Knowles behind closed doors. He said he doesn’t understand it. “My personal opinion is there is no reason to bar the media or the public from these meetings. I have nothing to hide,” Stegall said. County Commissioner Lilly Rooks said she told Knowles he shouldn’t be closing the meetings to the public and the Press. “I don’t see what’s wrong with the press being there anyway,” she said. She said Knowles didn’t respond to her comments. County Commission Chairman John Meeks said when Knowles asked him about closing the meetings, he told Knowles, “It isn’t my meeting. It’s your meeting.” Meeks added that he feels the meetings are not public. “It’s a meeting of re chiefs to discuss what they are doing,” Meeks said. “If that board did advise us it would be open to the public. It’s a sta meeting even though those re chiefs aren’t employed by the county.” Knowles does advise commissioners on issues related to city re departments. Meeks said it was mentioned to him that the re chiefs might experience “lockjaw,” and would be less likely to communicate freely than if the meeting was left open to the Press and public. Asked how that could be the case when two re chiefs boycotted last week’s re chiefs meeting because the Journal was being barred from attending, Meeks responded, “I don’t know. I won’t comment on that one way or another.” Knowles issued a written response on Oct. 1 to a voicemail question from the Journal asking why the meetings were being closed to the public. He responded by email that the county commission has directed him to work with municipal re chiefs “collaboratively toward the common goal of providing the best possible emergency response services to the residents and visitors of Levy County.” “e purpose of the Administrative Fire Chiefs meeting is to collaborate issues that involve the re departments and work on new policies, procedures and standardization to help form a bond between each other as department leaders to better serve the public. “With this in mind, the re department leaders need the opportunity to discuss multiple options, thoughts, etc. ese conversations could be misconstrued by the public or media and not accurately report the content of the discussions.” e Journal contacted the Florida Attorney General’s oce regarding the legality of closing the chiefs meeting, but Pat Gleason, special counsel for open government, said state law prohibits the Attorney General’s oce from giving opinions to private citizens. e oce can only issue legal advice to public entities such as the Levy County Commission. e county commission is not seeking a legal opinion on whether the re chiefs meeting should be open. Gleason said if both parties want to use a state mediation program, the Attorney General can issue an opinion on whether the chiefs meeting should be open. However, that possibility seems unlikely, since County Attorney Anne Brown no longer responds to Levy County Journal questions in writing, in person or over the telephone.

He said coverage for county-operated re stations is typically provided by part-time sta. He said “assignment vacancies” that are not led by part time sta within a 24 hour shift are open to qualied fulltime sta who can earn overtime. “Although we practice active recruiting throughout the county, due to our rural setting and elderly population density, the desired coverage is not always possible,” he wrote. “We have mutual and automatic aid agreements with surrounding departments to help overcome these circumstances. On August 17 and Sept. 20, 2015 there was no one available to provide coverage at LCDPS Station 6 (Fowlers Blu). e next closest station was dispatched.” Only Chieand Fire Rescue responded to both wrecks. Yankeetown is giving serious consideration to closing out its contract with DPS for re services and working out a cooperative agreement with neighboring Inglis for re services. Yankeetown ocials said Knowles promised to have two reghters working at the Yankeetown station every day, but he hasn’t provided full stang as promised.


4A Friends and Patriots,We need to Support Our Local Police and Keep em Independent of federal control and intervention. One of the oldest programs of e John Birch Society is the Support Your Local Police and Keep em Independent campaign. Back in the 1960s e John Birch Society recognized the dangers of a national police force and prevented the establishment of a citizen review board of the New York City Police Department. Currently there is an ongoing eort to usurp local control of our sheri and police departments. By creating pressure from below (riots) and pressure from above, (federal oversight and intervention) we are witnessing a transfer of control from our local police department to central management by the federal government. ese nationally publicized riots are being funded from behind the scenes and the rioters are transported from city to city, creating the appearance of a local grassroots concern. What you are seeing presented by the controlled media is no accident and all despotic governments must have a national police department in order to achieve total control. If this is allowed, we will experience many good and patriotic American Citizens being arrested and detained indenitely by this federal monster. If you doubt me, take a quick look at the history of despotism. First and Fourth Amendment rights are completely ignored and this will only get worse if we allow this to continue. e founders of our Republic created a weak central government with limited enumerated powers and checks and balances, leaving the majority of the power to the sovereign states. Domestic issues were clearly left under the authority of the states as made clear by James Madison in e Federalist #45 and in the Ninth and Tenth Amendments of our Bill of Rights, a.k.a. limitations of federal authority. Our local sheris and police departments role is to maintain peace, protect our freedoms and to protect us from federal interventions. Yet with federal bribes, military equipment transfers, and unconstitutional dictates from federal judges we are experiencing the transfer of power to the national government. While dozens of federal agencies have their own SWAT teams, that is not enough for those that wish to impose tyranny. To create a national police force might attract unwanted attention from congress, so the deception lies in the commandeering of our local departments. Using the tactic of “Divide and Conquer” and “orchestrated crisis” many uninformed citizens do not recognize this transfer of power and out of fear will do anything for security.

LEVY COUNTY JOURNAL Your Locally-Owned County Paper of Record since 1923continued to page 5A Editor’s Note: Be forewarned that the following opinion is graphic and unfortunately contains raw truth. Please read accordinglyMichele MalkinCreators Syndicate“I’d say a lot of people want liver.” e propagandists of Planned Parenthood don’t want you to remember that earlier this summer the group apologized for the “tone” of one of its top ocials, Deborah Nucatola, who casually hawked unborn baby parts to undercover journalists from the Center for Medical Progress as she swilled wine and chomped on a salad. Not long after confessing that the “tone” of their butchers might cause oense, another top Planned Parenthood tracker, Mary Gatter, joked about scoring a luxury car after haggling over $75 baby-organ price tags. “I want a Lamborghini.” “You know, in negotiations, whoever throws out the gure rst is at a loss, right?” Gatter nattered on. “I just don’t want to lowball.” Yet another Planned Parenthood death doc, Savita Ginde, shared her own prot-maximizing opinion with CMP’s undercover team, insisting: “I think a per-item thing works a little better, just because we can see how much we can get out of it.” As Ginde poked through dishes of her bloodied products, she ghoulishly joked about what “it” is. Or rather, was: “It’s a baby.” Ten lengthy, damning videos later, the billion-dollar abortion giant is in full-blown whitewash mode -and its bloodstained accomplices in the liberal media are out in force with their paint rollers. “e outrageous accusations leveled against Planned Parenthood based on heavily doctored videos are oensive and categorically untrue,” Planned Parenthood President Cecile Richards hued and pued on Capitol Hill ursday. Rolling Stone, last seen retracting its fraudulent report on the rape that didn’t happen at the University of Virginia, published a screed from abortion zealot Amanda Marcotte decrying “deceptively edited video.”’s Sarah Kli called descriptions of one of the most gruesome clips CMP released “pure ction” -and then grudgingly linked to the video after being called out on social media. “NBC Nightly News,” the former home of disgraced lying liar Brian Williams, cited “several” unnamed “fact checkers” to refute GOP 2016 candidate Carly Fiorina’s graphic and accurate descriptions of the videos -which are available for anyone interested in viewing the truth on CMP’s YouTube channel. e professional mainstream media doctors have some nerve complaining about “edited” content and manufactured narratives. It is, and always has been, their bread and butter. Take NBC. Reminder: is is the network that surreptitiously rigged GM pickup trucks in staged crash tests in 1993 to show that the vehicles were unsafe -and failed to inform viewers that the simulations used incendiary devices to ignite the explosions. Jane Pauley admitted in a nationally televised apology that “NBC’s contractors did put incendiary devices under the trucks to ensure there would be a re if gasoline were released from the gas tank. NBC personnel knew this before we aired the program, but the public was not informed because consultants at the scene told us the devices did not start the re.” NBC is also the home of phony Islamophobia stings at NASCAR races and “To Catch a Predator” hidden camera sting operations. ABC News’ “Primetime Live” adopted similar tactics in Alabama and Texas. CBS is the network that attempted to pass o fake National Guard memos to bring down George W. Bush. Sound bites, broadcast packages, cut pieces. Every day in elite American journalism is an exercise in slicing and dicing to t the left-wing agenda. “Professional” journalists view undercover work as a noble enterprise for the public and national interests -but only if it serves and reinforces their partisan and political worldviews. e vehement campaign by both the baby butchers of Planned Parenthood and the media butchers of the Fourth Estate to discredit the work of the Center for Medical Progress makes undeniably and indelibly clear: Pro-life journalists have struck a nerve. Like the innocent victims in the dozens of hours of barbaric footage available to anyone willing to open their eyes, the truth-tellers must be destroyed.Michelle Malkin is author of the new book “Who Built at: Awe-Inspiring Stories of American Tinkerpreneurs.” Her email address is COPYRIGHT 2015 CREATORS.COM OPINION Thomas SowellCreators SyndicateOne of the secrets of successful magicians on stage is directing the audience’s attention to something that is attractive or distracting, but irrelevant to what is actually being done. at is also the secret of successful political charlatans. Consider the message directed at business owners by Senator Elizabeth Warren and President Barack Obama -“You didn’t build that!” Assuming for the sake of argument that a man who owns a business simply inherited it from his father, what follows? at politicians can use the inherited resources better than the heir? Such a sweeping assumption has neither logic nor evidence behind it -but rhetoric doesn’t have to have logic or evidence to be politically eective. e conclusion is insinuated, rather than spelled out, so it is less likely to be scrutinized. Moreover, attention is directed toward the undeserved good fortune of the heir, and away from the crucial question as to whether society will in fact be better o if politicians take over more of either the management or the earnings of the business. e question of politicians’ track record in managing economic activities vanishes into thin air, just as other things vanish into thin air by a magician’s sleight of hand on stage. Another of the magic feats of political rhetoric in our time is to blame “a legacy of slavery” for problems in the black community today. e repulsiveness of slavery immediately seizes our attention, just as eectively as the attractiveness of a magician’s scantily clad female assistant or the distraction of a ash of light or a loud noise on stage. Here again, rhetoric distracts attention from questions about logic or evidence. e “legacy of slavery” argument is not just a convenient excuse for bad behavior, it allows politicians to escape responsibility for the consequences of the government policies they imposed. Although the left likes to argue as if there was a stagnant world to which they added the magic ingredient of “change” in the 1960s, in reality there were many positive trends in the 1950s, which reversed and became negative trends in the 1960s. Not only was the poverty rate going down, so was the rate of dependence on government to stay out of poverty. Teenage pregnancy rates were falling, and so were rates of venereal diseases like syphilis and gonorrhea. Homicide rates among non-white males fell 22 percent in the 1950s. In the wake of the massive expansion of the welfare state in the 1960s “war on poverty” program -with the repeatedly announced goal of enabling people to become self-supporting and end their dependence on government -in fact dependence on government increased and is today far higher than when the 1960s began. e declining rates of teenage pregnancy and venereal diseases in the 1950s both reversed and rose sharply in the wake of the 1960s “sexual revolution” ideas, introduced into schools under the guise of “sex education,” which claimed to be able to reduce teenage pregnancy and venereal diseases. Black labor force participation rates, which had been higher than white labor force participation rates in every census from 1890 to 1960, fell below white labor force participation rates by 1972 and the gap has widened since then. Homicide rates among nonwhite males reversed their decline in the 1950s and soared by 75 percent during the 1960s. None of this was a “legacy of slavery,” which ended a century earlier. But slavery became the rhetorical distraction for the political magicians’ trick of making their own responsibility for social degeneration vanish into thin air by sleight of hand. Political charlatans are not the whole story of our social degeneracy on many fronts. “We the people” must accept our own share of the blame because we voted these charlatans into oce, and went along with their ever-increasing power over our lives. When it came to charlatans taking ever larger amounts of our own money to nance ever more big government programs, we stood still like sheep waiting to be sheared. We remained as meek as sheep when they turned schools into places to propagandize our children to grow up accepting more of the same. All the while we had the power to vote them out. But we couldn’t be bothered to look beyond their magic words. Even now, many are too absorbed in their electronic devices to know or care.omas Sowell is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305.

ObamaCare promised those who went along for the ride a “risk corridor” supposedly funded by the prots from one exchange bailing out the losses from another exchange to help the loser from the redistributed prots of the winner. Only problem is what if they all suer the inevitable loses from the covered risks? Sen. Rubio found that section 1342 of the Aordable Care Act a/k/a ObamaCare allowed for taxpayer help at this point in the ‘risk corridor’ and introduced the legislation to repeal this section to make the resolution of the shortage “budget neutral” which means not funded by taxpayer dollars and requiring the ObamaCare promoters to return to the constitutional Congress to open the purse of taxpayer dollars to fund, or keep the purse closed. Sen. Rubio has carried on this legislation to keep it current. Kathy Hilliard EditorRubio Saves Taxpayers over $2.5 Billion in Obamacare Bailout Funds, Calls for Taking Option O the Table For GoodWashington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (RFL) issued the following statement regarding last night’s Obama Administration announcement conrming that his eorts against taxpayer-funded bailouts of health insurance companies under ObamaCare succeeded in saving taxpayers over $2.5 billion this past year: “American taxpayers have prevailed for now over ObamaCare’s crony capitalist bailout program. Taxpayers should never have to bail out health insurance companies that lose money under ObamaCare, and now we need to take that option o the table for good by passing my legislation to repeal the risk corridor provision in ObamaCare once and for all. “e risk corridor provision was passed within ObamaCare under the broken promises of lower health insurance premiums and Americans being able to keep their health insurance plans. ObamaCare is a massively awed law with a real impact that has destroyed health insurance in America, and it needs to be repealed and replaced.”• Under ObamaCare, health insurance companies that lose money can seek taxpayer funds to cover their losses.Palm Beach Post: “If an insurance company’s medical claims exceed anticipated costs, a federal ‘risk-corridor’ program reimburses a share of those costs. It’s a lesser-known piece of Obamacare intended to cushion risks for insurers between now and 2016 as companies adapt to sweeping healthcare changes.” (“Florida Blue chief: GOP attacks on insurance ‘bailout’ unfair,” Palm Beach Post, 8/14/2014) []• Health insurance companies immediately criticized the shortfall in bailout funding.Politico Pro: “Insurers are criticizing today’s announcement by the Obama administration that they’ll receive just $362 million out of $2.9 billion in requested risk corridors payments for 2014 e health law requires that insurers will eventually receive their requested payments. But it’s unclear where the funds will come from to fully pay for it. A budget deal reached last year requires the program to be budget neutral. e risk corridor program was designed to protect insurers entering the Obamacare exchanges.” (“Insurers criticize HHS decision to pay out a fraction of requested risk corridor payments”, Politico Pro, 10/1/2015)• e Obama Administration was unable to pay the remaining $2.5 billion because of a provision which U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) fought to include in the December 2014 omnibus spending bill passed by Congress, which forced the risk corridor program to be revenue neutral – in other words, not funded by taxpayers. • Rubio was the rst to identify the likelihood of a taxpayer-funded bailout of health insurance companies under ObamaCare in November 2013, when he introduced legislation to repeal it. (“Rubio Introduces Bill Preventing Taxpayer-Funded Bailouts Of Insurance Companies Under ObamaCare,” Press Release, 11/19/2014) [ public/index.cfm/press-releases?ID=64576752-410641a2-9c50-f0cf0c5cc3c7]In February 2014, Rubio testied before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee about the danger of taxpayers having to bail out health insurance companies under ObamaCare. Video & Transcript [ index.cfm/press-releases?ID=15aa6f57-e03a-43c3-a79ae2e43d691c04] In the current Congress, Rubio’s rst bill introduced would eliminate taxpayer-funded bailouts of ObamaCare for good. (“Rubio Introduces Bill Preventing Taxpayer-Funded Bailouts Of Insurance Companies Under ObamaCare,” Press Release, 1/8/2015 – see below) Feb. 8, 2015 Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) today (1/8/15) introduced e ObamaCare Taxpayer Bailout Prevention Act, a bill that would eliminate a provision of ObamaCare that allows for taxpayer-funded bailouts of insurance companies at the Obama Administration’s sole discretion. is is the rst piece of legislation introduced by Rubio in the 114th Congress. e bill would repeal section 1342 of ObamaCare, which establishes a risk corridor program to distribute money from exchange plans that earned prots to exchange plans that suered losses. However, the risk corridor program was not designed to be budget neutral, and section 1342 of ObamaCare puts the American taxpayer at risk of a taxpayer bailout if insurers systematically lose money on exchange plans. By repealing Section 1342, the legislation would force the administration to come back to Congress to request appropriations to cover any losses in the program. Federal Militarization of Police Blocked by Montana Law Written by: Tim BrownOctober 1, 2015, for sonsoibertymedia.comursday is the day that a Montana law went into eect and will greatly diminish federal programs that seek to militarize local police of the state. HB330, [] introduced by Rep. Nicholas Schwaderer (R-Superior), bans receiving of signicant classes of military equipment (weaponized drones, combat aircraft, grenades, grenade launchers, silencers and militarized armored vehicles) from the Pentagon’s “1033 Program” by state and local law enforcement. e bill, which passed 46-1 in the state Senate and 79-20 in the state House, was signed into law by Governor Steve Bullock in April. “I’m incredibly pleased. In the latter part of the session you see so much partisanship so it’s heartening to see that both Democrats and Republicans could get behind it,” Schwaderer had previously stated. “It’s no lightweight bill. It substantially changes policy in a way that strengthens the civil liberties of Montanans.” “is foundation sets a massive precedent in Montana and the country as to what kind of society we want to have,” Schwaderer added. “If you get to the point where you need a grenade launcher, we’ve got the National Guard.” e Tenth Amendment Center also points out that the bill, “closes this loophole by banning law enforcement agencies from purchasing such military equipment with federal grants. ey could continue to purchase them, but would have to use state or local funds, and the agencies would have to give public notice within 14 days of a request for any such local purchase.” e growing ties of federal ties to militarization of local police without any real need to do so is alarming. Last year, in the wake of the Ferguson riots, e Guardian reported: Billions of federal dollars have been spent since September 11 on purchasing modern and often military-grade equipment for state and local police. But there is little that limits the use of that hardware to counter-terrorism purposes, and oversight of the spending is dicult, according to federal sources and documents reviewed by the Guardian. In the wake of the Ferguson protests, much attention has gone to the Department of Defense’s program to supply surplus military equipment to police. But that program is eclipsed in size and scope by grant money from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), which enables purchases of similar “tactical” equipment. Under existing federal requirements, police departments and state law enforcement agencies do not need to spend much of that money on preventing terrorism or preparing for disaster relief. e Guardian then added, “During the current scal year, DHS plans to award $1.6bn in grant money for state, local and tribal agencies, mostly to aid them with counterterrorism, border security and disaster preparedness, it announced last month. By contrast, the Defense Department’s “1033” program to transfer surplus military gear gave out less than $500m worth of equipment in scal 2013.” While some will claim that this is necessary for police to “do their jobs” and that it would normally cost the states to buy this equipment, people must begin to think for themselves and ask, does our local police force actually need a military vehicle on American streets? Are we really at war and need MRAPs or Bearcats? I think not. In fact, one Washington Sheri’s deputy has claimed that they need such vehicles to deal with “constitutionalists.” And a school district in San Diego even has an MRAP! What on earth are they preparing for from students? None of this is necessary. As the feds attempt to militarize the local police, they are doing everything they can to disarm the American people in clear violation of the Second Amendment. As retired Marine Col. Peter Matino told his city council back in 2013, “Is everybody blind? (e US) is building a domestic army!” I agree, and I’m glad to see that Montana is leading the way against the tyranny. Now, perhaps other states will take the same measures. Editor’s Notes: During Obama’s campaign tour in 2008 he stated: continued to page 6A

We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded." [] Retired Marine Col. Peter Matino also said this after explaining what it was like and how un-equipped his Marine corp was in Fallujah at times but how over equipped Homeland Security is: “What's happening here is we're building a domestic military because it's unlawful and unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil. So what we're doing is building a military.” []Some Candidates on Gun ControlBen Carson wrote in his book, A More Perfect Union: What We the People Can do to Reclaim Our Constitutional Liberties: “Only law-abiding citizens are aected by legislation imposing gun control,” Carson writes in the book. “e criminals don’t care what the law says, which is why they are criminals. Conscating the guns of American citizens would violate the Constitution as well as rendering the citizenry vulnerable to criminals and tyrants.” He also argues in the book that rearms should be not restricted because “our founders recognized that ‘we the People’ could represent a signicant ghting force if necessary to repel an invasion by foreign forces. ey also knew that an armed population would discourage government overreach.”Hillary ClintonOn the campaign trail in Manchester, N.H. Monday, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton threatened to use unilateral implementation of a new gun control plan if Congress did not pass one of her platform measures to repeal the “Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.” is act protects gun manufacturers and dealers from negligence when a rearm is used in an act of violence and was passed in 2005, then signed into law by then President George W. Bush. Speaking on this law Clinton said “if Congress won’t act,” she will take “administrative action to close the gun show and internet sales loophole” and require anyone selling a signicant number of guns be deemed “in the business” of selling rearms and be required to adhere to the same federal laws as licensed dealers. is could be the same as a car dealer who sells a car to a buyer who kills someone with the car and holding the car dealer responsible for the death; or a knife salesperson being held responsible for the death of someone killed by the purchaser of that knife; and so on. e real problem with this part of Clinton’s remarks on gun control is the inference to following in the footsteps of Obama by running this country by executive order rather than by the Constitution. It appears the disease of “dictatorship” is contagious. We can all agree that our children need protection but that gun in Oregon did not get up on its own and kill innocent lives. e Clinton gun control agenda covers many other items also. at is something you should read about or listen to. So while the government arms up, Clinton wants to make sure that “we the people” are disarmed.Kathy Hilliard, EditorFederal Militarization of Police Blocked by Montana Law continued from page 5A e Chieand Area Athletic Association is very proud to announce the 14th Annual Fall Festival for the children and adults of the surrounding area. e Fall Festival will take place on Saturday, Oct. 31 at Strickland Park. Please, please help! C.A.A.A. will hold a meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 12 in the board room at Strickland Park for the upcoming Fall Festival. If you can help or would like to contribute door prizes, or just want to get involved, the community is invited. We take pride in this endeavor for our community. In the past, we have made it possible to furnish a safe surrounding, costume contests and free door prizes that are donated by our sponsors. e carnival is provided to our community to help the children and others who may not want to or who may not have the funds to oer the children trick or treat candy. Games and entertainment is always a must. Our local high school also encourages the teenagers to use this opportunity for community service for Bright Future Scholarships. As many of you know, C.A.A.A is a non-prot organization that helps develop children and entertains adults. C.A.A.A. is not only for children. We provide a service to Chieand and the surrounding area. We are very proud to work with the City of Chieand as their ocial league. At this time, we provide an adult co-ed softball league, church leagues softball, youth football, youth baseball, youth softball, basketball, football, cheerleading and soccer. C.A.A.A. is run by volunteers. ese volunteers organize, manage, serve and donate hours and hours of time, along with their best eorts to help our community. Wayne Weatherford and Myron Watson are our veteran board members. As most know, Myron Watson has terminal cancer and Wayne has had numerous health problems. C.A.A.A board members have experienced a huge year of setbacks. Most would not know, and some would wonder. Chieand has always been an example to other communities. We have developed programs that others have molded their volunteer programs after. C.A.A.A is very proud of our accomplishments. We always have encouraged and desperately need new members. is letter is not only to ask for your help, but to please get involved in your community. I have lived in Chieand all my life. Our activities have come a long way. But, we continue to need parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts and just about anyone living in the community. is could be a blessing for a child; maybe a child that needs a second parent or a role model. Where would you be today if someone hadn’t believed in you or if someone hadn’t taken that extra hour on a weekend to make a dierence? is may sound silly or clich, but I plead with you one on one. I would say, “Can you please help?” If you know me, you would know I bleed Chieand. I’m still here today – almost 25 years later. My children grew up in C.A.A.A. and now have moved on, but I am still here. I have seen many people come and go, many board members that have spent hours and hours, sometimes 20 to 30 hours a week. If you ask most people, they think this is a job. Our children will only be as good as we help mold them and teach them through athletics, sportsmanship, socialization – how to win, how to lose and dedication. We do make a dierence. Over the years, I have written many articles about our C.A.A.A. Many times people will pass this message on, and some will ignore this article. I pray and hope this will reach out and help others to know this is a very serious situation that C.A.A.A. is faced with. At this time, Ryan Hinote, Michelle Mitchell, Kim Byrd, Jennifer Stewart (Cedar Key representative), Russell Hinote, Myron Watson and myself, Wayne Weatherford, are the current members. Marissa DeHaven has volunteered to take over the soccer program. She has started sign-ups for the 2015 soccer season. As you can guess, I am very passionate about C.A.A.A. along with the other members. Myron has recently stepped down. My health is much improved. Myron will be missed and never forgotten! Many young men and woman who have come in contact with him still remember his dedication and personality. Myron has received visits and phone calls from many and is remaining strong. Please get involved. Remember everyone can help. Your time or monetary contributions, or any other contribution could be used. Our children will greatly benet. Please take part in the Oct. 12 meeting regarding the Fall Festival. It would be greatly appreciated. ank you, Wayne Weatherford, Chieand Area Athletics Association President P.O.

Several visitors donated books, magazines and fabric which we really are thankful that they thought of us. We’re planning the next project for the quilt frame. Friday night, our bowtie made its television debut on Channel 20. It was great to hear “Levy County Quilt Museum” mentioned many times on air. Now if several people will come out to visit, we would be very happy. Saturday, we were at Dudley Farms State Park for Quilt Turning Day. Old quilts can give us a glimpse of the past with the various fabrics and patterns. Old quilts were not just pretty, they were necessary for warmth. Seeing old friends and making new friends just made our day Saturday, Oct 10th we’ll be entering in Scarecrow City contest. Come by and see our display. It looks like the weather will be great for sitting on the porch. We should have a couple of months of sitting on the porch weather so come on out for a visit.

Terhune, Bean and Patricia Tyson were shot by Walter Tyson. “at’s the most violence and the deadliest crime scene I have worked. e shooting at Crab Fest compares with it,” Tummond said. Investigators are still trying to piece together what happened and in what sequence. ey know Terhune was an innocent bystander. ey know that Bean had a relationship with Patricia Tyson, but they don’t know the nature of the relationship or if it was romantic in nature. Terhune, a retired Vietnam veteran who served three tours of duty, was in a passenger vehicle parked at the nearby Capital City Bank ATM when shots rang out. He could see children on playground in the area of the shooting and was concerned the children might get hurt. Upon hearing the shots and realizing the children were in danger he went to confront Walter Tyson. Terhune was shot dead on the lawn. Tummond said Terhune may have been unaware of how deadly the scene had become when he walked over to Tyson, but his motivation was to protect the children. e shots Terhune heard were red close to the playground. e murders and suicide became a national story when tweets went out on Twitter indicating the killings had taken place at Inglis Town Hall. ose tweets apparently caught the eye of major news organizations across the country because the mass murder at an Oregon college campus happened the same day and the hash tags were the same. Tummond said ABC, CBS, NBC, the Tampa Times, the Chicago Tribune, the Wall Street Journal and other news organizations called him on his cell phone. He has no idea where they got his cell phone number. “Bad news travels fast,” he said. When the rst 911 calls came into the sheri’s oce at 6:10 p.m. ursday callers were reporting hearing shots red from across the street from Town Hall on County Road 40 West. Callers also reported there may be injuries related to the shots. Sheri’s oce tele-communicators dispatched law enforcement and ambulances to the location. A Levy County Department of Public Safety ambulance happened to be in “very close proximity” to the location and immediately responded. e EMS and Inglis Fire Department arrived before law enforcement and were unaware the location was unsafe. “EMS, putting themselves in harm’s way, immediately identied two male victims in the front yard and exited their emergency response vehicle to render aid,” a sheri’s oce news release said. “EMS quickly recognized the extreme volatile nature of the situation and continued their mission by putting their own lives in peril and heroically rescued Otis Ray Bean, Jr.” Bean later died at an area hospital. e U.S. Marshal’s Regional Fugitive Task Force was operating in the Inglis area on an unrelated investigation. Team members consisting of the U.S. Marshals, Levy County Sheri’s Oce, Florida Department of Law Enforcement Agents, Chieand police ocers, Alachua County sheri’s deputies and Williston police ocers surrounded the shooting scene. Eyewitnesses told ocers the shooter had entered the home. Ocers in the task force quickly mounted a rescue operation to aid the second male victim in the yard, Terhune. He was removed from the yard but had died of gunshot-related injuries. A secure perimeter was established by ocers. Orders for surrender were immediately given to all occupants of the home. Ocers reported seeing a man on the second story of the home walk to the window. e man, later identied as Walter Tyson, disappeared from sight. Ocers heard a single gunshot, followed by a loud thud inside the home. Task force ocers deployed a robot into the interior of the home which located Tyson’s body upstairs. Sheri Bobby McCallum requested mutual aid assistance from Citrus County Sheri Je Dawsy who sent several members of his SWAT team to assist. Upon their arrival, SWAT team members deployed “distraction devices” into the home and made entry. ey discovered Patricia Tyson’s body in the kitchen. McCallum and the LCSO expressed their condolences to the families and to the community members who were aected by this violent act. McCallum said his department is committed to the security of the community’s safety. He expressed his deepest gratitude to members of the Marshal’s Task Force, Dawsy for responding with his SWAT team and forensics unit, the Inglis Fire Department, the Levy County Department of Public Safety and the Alachua County Sheri’s Oce. Without their assistance, McCallum said the tragic shootings would have taxed his agency’s resources and potentially lengthened this investigation. “eir assistance aids in the quickest possible resolution for the families and community,” McCallum said. e Levy County Sheri’s Oce continues to work the investigation and requests the community’s assistance. If anyone has information to aid the investigation, they are being asked to contact the sheri’s oce at 352/486-5111 and ask for an investigator from the Criminal Investigations Unit. Local Patriot and Veteran Loses His Life Protecting Others continued from page 1A e very day that Buzz tragically lost his life, he stopped by the Inglis Town Hall and left a Get Well card and balloons on my desk saying, "Hang in there and get better.....I'm not done with you yet." Buzz wasn't a man of large stature, but he conducted himself as a giant of a man with integrity, compassion, and the grit to do the right thing for everyone. ose very attributes caused our community to lose one hell of a good man. We will miss him. Drinda Merritt Mayor of InglisAquaculture Specialist Tells Rotarians Clam Farming Big Industry in Cedar Key continued from page 1A dockside value of clams in 2012 was nearly $12 million. Sturmer drew smiles when she noted that there were no new pickup trucks in Cedar Key in 1993, but by 2003 there were 87 new pickup trucks, a sign that the clam industry was doing well. She said there are 8 clam hatcheries in Florida, with 4 of them in Cedar Key. ere are 24 clam nurseries in Cedar Key. Of the 50 clam wholesalers in Florida, 21 operate out of Cedar Key. Some people make their living sewing bags for Cedar Key clam farmers. e clams are grown in bags below the surface of the water. Clams are lter feeders, removing microscopic plants from the Gulf of Mexico as food. Sturmer said clams are environmentally benecial to the Gulf of Mexico. It is estimated that 136 million clams can remove 761,000 pounds of nitrogen from the water. e average clam grower in Cedar Key has 6-8 acres of submerged lands he or she can farm. Sturmer said the industry is expanding and diversifying in Cedar Key. ere are alternative species being grown by aquaculture scientists to determine how well they fare in Cedar Key’s waters. Sturmer commended Chieand Rotarian Osborne Barker, Chieand Rotary Club President Skipper Henderson thanks Leslie Sturmer for her presentation on the clam industry in Cedar Key. Photo by Terry Witt.

Overall numbers were down this week. ere seems to be a lot of cattle moving out west, which is normal for this time of year, and that makes our cattle a little less desirable in Florida. Hopeful this market will straighten up over the next few months. Slaughter cattle remained fairly steady this week. Replacement cattle are still selling very well. Roland Cope topped the slaughter bull market this week with $115.00 bought by Central Beef. Bill Deas sold the top slaughter caw this week at $97.00 bought by Brown Packing. Blake Hand sold the highest price replacement cows at $190.00 bought by James Weeks. Sidney Roberts sold the highest price replacement bull at $122.00 bought by 4M Cattle. Mary and Daniel omas sold the highest priced pairs at $1700.00 bought by Cracker Cattle. e high price yearling went to Jackie Moore at $385.00 sold by Blake Hand.

It doesn’t build team unity, or impress a coach who’s invested three years into trying to teach you some class. Yes bullying is bad, I’m sure of it, no matter how good it may make you feel at the time. It’s wrong, wrong, wrong! Sorry coach. Sorry freshman. I probably shouldn’t have taken the mound that day anyway. Clearly I didn’t have my stu. A sharp pain was shooting through my shoulder causing my fast ball to waft up to the plate like a crippled zeppelin dragging a minibus. I just wanted one last chance to silence our cocky arch rivals as they heckled me from the other dugout. So I lied and said my arm felt ne. Sorry coach. After my rst few pitches, and the corresponding neckwrenching doubles they elicited, I hastily adjusted my game plan. I had to reach for two rarely used weapons in my arsenal, my curve ball and my brain. Neither had ever proven very overpowering. In desperation I begin trying to pitch smart, hitting spots, and rallying the team behind me. I soon realized that acting like a team player wasn’t that bad after all. Maybe not as eective as a good fastball, but hey, coupled with a few runs of our own, we actually headed into the last inning leading by one. I stumbled out to the mound for those nal three outs a weary mix of caked dust and sweat; dragging the long shadows of boyhoodthreatening the makings of a man. I’d left my all, out on the eld that day, including most of the cartilage from my shoulder. Hitching up my pants I eagerly set about to nally settle this vendetta between our two schools. My rst pitch was promptly roped out into left eld for a single. I walked the next guy with four straight pitches. is was not turning out the way I planned! Was I going to fall apart at crunch time? e other team was already laughing me to scorn. ey knew I had nothing left. I turned to my coach halfway hoping he’d pull me. His jaw muscles were working, but he just clapped and gave me a nod of condence. With that I managed to get the next one over the plate. It was slapped pretty hard down the line, but thankfully our third baseman got enough leather on it to knock it down and step on the bag for the force. My next big sweeping curve ball was blasted deep to left; back, back, way back, only to be hauled down at the fence for the second out. e runners had tagged however, leaving the potential winning run at second base. Who then should saunter up the plate? Eric Anderson, my rival since t-ball, star pitcher, and clean-up hitter. I dug down deep, and with the aid of two of his towering shots landing just foul, I was somehow able to work him to a full count. Clearly the drama had unfolded before us like that tattered ole’ battle ag apping in the winds of destiny. We were entering into that small chunk of time from which the world carves its champions. Eric’s team appeared condent, no doubt already mentally etching their names on the conference trophy. A bat boy cried, “Knock that rinky-dink curve outta here!” My catcher ashed the same two ngers he had all game, but I’d already made up my mind. Despite all the pain, and the risk of permanent damage to my shoulder, it would be one pitch for all the glory. I gritted my teeth, and went into my windup with the threads gripped for a fastball. A lightning bolt of pain ripped through my shoulder and shot through my ngertips. at baseball carried everything I had left. It wasn’t much, yet just enough to throw Eric’s timing o. He dribbled a slow roller straight to our second basemanour FRESHMAN second baseman! I’d like to report he scooped it up and made the short toss to rst to end the game. I’d also like to say that my character changed completely that day and I never again acted like a bully, or a self-centered cry baby, but you’ve probably read way too many of my stories to believe that. Truth iswe’re all just human. We’ve got a tendency to boot the big one at crunch time, or stu the one that does in a locker. I’m not justifying, I’m just saying. Our best pitch is to learn to call on the mercy and forgiveness of the Lord Jesus; the only truly perfect One. He’ll keep working with those who’ll keep working with Him. ( And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is nally nished on the day when Christ Jesus returns. Philippians 1:6 NLT) But anywayWe’re all just making our way up through the minor leagues here. Don’t give up on yourself, and don’t get down on your teammates. Just be quick to say ‘Sorry Coach’ when you miss it, and hitch your pants up and get back on the mound. at’s the stu from which real champions are carved.

AnnYoung 352-486-4998 By Terry Witt Senior Sta WriterEveryone who has ever walked this earth was at one time in their mother’s womb. at’s no big secret. e womb can be a cozy, warm and loving space if the mother loves her baby. It is a nightmare if she doesn’t. e unborn have no choice in whether they are brought into this world. ey must accept their fate. Should the mother choose to abort them, the child will never experience human life. e brutality of abortion has driven people to participate in the Life Chain every rst Sunday in October for many years. Christians stand along roadsides in Levy County and elsewhere in this nation holding signs saying abortion is wrong. On Saturday, as part of the Life Chain, 41 members of First Baptist Church in Bronson stood along U.S. 27A holdings signs appealing to people to exercise their conscience and oppose abortion. Among the Life Chain participants were Ben and Vicki Walker. Vicki said they prayed for motorists passing to react to the messages on the signs and look within their heart to see that abortion is wrong. “I think it should be stopped. It should have been stopped years and years ago,” Ben Walker said. “Just think of the great people who were never born that could have been president. It’s just a national tragedy, that’s what it is.” Paula Sprague said several years ago a woman stopped to talk to Life Chain members in Bronson. “She was thinking about abortion and she changed her mind,” Sprague said. “ere are people out there who will adopt. I know there are situations, but it’s still a child. When a child is conceived, it’s still a child.” Denise and Ben Carillo said they adopted their son Ben, Jr. when he was two hours old. ey received him in Texas. He was born on Halloween. He is an adult today. e Carillos were foster parents to other children for many years. ey fostered 10 children, but one stands out in their mind. One of their former female foster children returned to visit with them years after she had left. After she left their care, she became pregnant at age 13. She was an unwed mother and considered abortion, but changed her mind when she remembered standing with the Carillos in the Life Chain as they held the signs saying, “Abortion is Wrong.” “at’s why I believe in standing here; how the Spirit of God works in a child’s life,” he said. First Baptist Church Pastor Je Buchanan said the Life Chain is an opportunity to stand against abortion. “We’re for life. If it saves one child, it’s worth it, or to get one person to change their mind about abortion,” he said. “We have a wonderful church and we’re trying to make a dierence in our community and our world.” (e Life Chain is a pro-life social movement organization, one of the largest in the America. It was started in 1987 in Yuba City and Marysville by a small California-based pro-life ministry called Please Let Me Live. Every rst Sunday of October, Life Chain invites various churches and congregations across the United States to stand on designated sidewalks to pray and rally for one hour.)Community Members Stand Against Abortion in ‘Life Chain’ Vicki and Ben Walker hold signs as part of Sunday's nationwide Life Chain, a protest against Abortion.

Her voice was barely audible. She was not speaking into her microphone. Nichols said his group won’t be selling any beer, but Bronson Speedway will sell beer in the designated beer garden behind the grandstands on one end of the facility. He said the sponsors have sold only 103 tickets, but they published marketing materials saying they have 2,500 tickets that are going fast. He anticipates about 500 people will attend the event to cover costs. Since the speedway is located in Bronson, Bronson Fire Rescue Chief Dennis Russell said there would be no overnight camping by the public, no open res (grill cooking only) and each food truck must have safety equipment, which Russell will inspect himself.County Approves Mud Bog Concert with Beer Restrictions continued from page 1A
