Deer Crossing

Drivers in the Tri-County Area of Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist counties are potentially going to see wildlife crossing the road in front of them, just as this deer was seen and is captured on this HardisonInk.com news Jeep's dash camera from May 23 at about 2 p.m. The thing about deer, although it didn't happen in this instance, is that seeing one deer crossing the road means there may be more deer behind that one. Some people find the appearance of deer to be so commonplace that they are not impressed. Other individuals always enjoy seeing wildlife making it across a road safely.

Burn bans lifted in some counties
By Melanie Banton of the Florida Forest Service
Published May 26, 2917 at 12:07 p.m.
Recent precipitation has eased the severity of dry conditions in some parts of the Waccasassa Forestry Center, but it has not lifted the burden of fire hazard in all areas.

     Burn bans in Levy, Gilchrist and Alachua counties have been lifted, but Dixie, Marion and Putnam counties' burn bans are still in effect.
     You may see increased smoke in the air as some authorized pile burning in the Waccasassa Forestry Center will be allowed.      Fire prevention measures should still be strictly adhered to by members of the public.
     The Florida fire season lasts all year and the Florida Forest Service strongly urges everyone to be fire wise when burning. If your county doesn’t have a burn ban and you choose to have an outdoor fire, please do so responsibly:
     • Always keep the fire attended
     • Keep water sources and equipment such as rakes and shovels on hand to prevent the fire from spreading
     • Keep open flames away from structures, vehicles, and wooded areas
     • Do not use accelerants such as gasoline to start your fire
     • Adhere to all open burning rules and regulations
     If you have any questions regarding outdoor burning, please contact the Florida Forest Service at 352-395-4951.
     The Florida Forest Service, a division of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, manages 37 state forests on more than one million acres of public forest land while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire.

Yesterday's Storm

These two photos from the Town of Suwannee in Dixie County show how much water came in with the storm that swept through there yesterday (Wednesday, May 24). There was both a tornado watch and a flood warning in effect yesterday. The warning for coastal flooding along the Gulf of Mexico in this part of Florida went into this morning.

Graphic By the National Weather Service, using information sent by instruments at Williston Municipal Airport, and cut to fit here. See more information from the NWS at http://www.weather.gov/.

The temperature at 9 a.m. in Chiefland was 68 degrees Fahrenheit, warming from 7 a.m. when it was 64 degrees. The forecast high for that city in Levy County is 78 to 81 degrees today (May 25), depending on which weather predictor is asked. The National Weather Service forecast from its station in Jacksonville at 3:45 a.m. today (May 25) showed there is a small craft advisory for offshore waters through this afternoon in Northeast Florida (Jacksonville and thereabouts) and Southeast Georgia. As for the area of Florida from the National Weather Service forecast from its station in Ruskin, it notes ‘A few showers and storms will move across the southern half of the area today as drier air moves into the north.’ Today and tonight, though, there is still reason to watch the weather, because the NWS notes ‘scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible
pushing south across the southern half of the area (which is south of the Levy-Dixie-Gilchrist region) today. Thunderstorms that develop will be capable of producing strong gusty winds...locally heavy rains...and frequent deadly lightning strikes. RIP CURRENT IMPACT High surf will produce a high risk of rip currents along area beaches. MARINE IMPACTS Wind speeds of 20 to 25 knots will continue through this morning across the coastal waters and keep hazardous boating conditions for small craft operators in place. Winds will gradually diminish through the late morning and afternoon with conditions on the waters improving through the day.’ Please remember that hurricane season officially starts on June 1. Please have a plan for evacuation, and for staying in place without electric service or use of roads and the like.

Tornado Watch and
Flood Warning Issued

By Jeff M. Hardison © May 24, 2017 at 7:37 a.m.
Updated May 24, 2017 at 8:37 a.m.

     JACKSONVILLE -- The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch effective from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. this afternoon (Wednesday, May 24) for Alachua, Baker, Bay, Bradford, Calhoun, Citrus, Clay, Columbia, Dixie, Duval, Flagler, Franklin, Gadsden, Gilchrist, Gulf, Hamilton, Jackson, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lake, Leon, Levy, Liberty, Madison, Marion, Nassau, Putnam, Saint Johns, Sumter, Suwannee, Taylor, Union, Volusia and Wakulla counties.
     This includes all of the cities, all of the subdivisions and all of the unrecorded subdivisions (such as Jemlands in Levy County) within those counties.
     A tornado watch is issued when weather conditions are favorable for the development of severe thunderstorms called a Supercell that are capable of producing tornadoes.

     A tornado watch therefore implies that it is also a severe thunderstorm watch.
     A tornado warning is of a higher concern than a tornado watch.
     A tornado warning is an alert issued by national weather forecasting agencies to warn the public that severe thunderstorms with tornadoes are imminent or occurring. It can be issued after a tornado or funnel cloud has been spotted by the public, storm chasers, emergency management or law enforcement, or more commonly if there are radar indications of tornado formation.

Coastal Flood Warning
Levy County and Citrus County

     A coastal flood warning has been issued by the National Weather Service for Levy and Citrus counties as early as noon today (May 24) and from 5 p.m. this evening through the early morning hours of Thursday (May 25).
     Water levels are anticipated to be from two to three feet higher than normal tides.
     Moderate coastal flooding is possible near high tide around noon today.
     Minor coastal flooding is anticipated at times of high tide possibly through the evening and into tomorrow morning.
     Overwash onto low-lying roadways, such as State Road 24 leading into the City of Cedar Key, for instance, will be possible.
     A Coastal Flood Warning means that flooding is occurring or is imminent. Coastal residents in the area are warned to be alert and know that they should take appropriate action to avoid loss of life and property.
     When water is flowing over a road -- don't drown, turn around.
     People who are connected with the Levy County Emergency Management warning system will have received this warning via their cell phones, tablets and computers.

And Then There Were None

This empty stage shot from the play And Then There Were None is now first seen. Brad Six, an actor who played the part of Sir Lawrence Wargrave in that play performed by the Suwannee Valley Players (SVP), designed the set. This photo was held from its first being taken in late April at the request of Director Diana Child so that audiences would have the opportunity to experience its empty wholeness at the play, which has now run its course. Hence, the shot is visible now. The SVP has scheduled a clean-up day at The Chief Theater (on Park Avenue east of U.S. Highway 19 in Chiefland) to happen on June 24 from 3 to 7 p.m., SVP Secretary Stephanie Crawford noted in a recent email alert to interested parties. 'We are asking for everyone to come out and lend a hand. The more that show up, the quicker this will be. We mainly need to just straighten stuff up, but it's very manageable.' She would like participants to please send her a note to let her know who is going to help with the clean-up day. For people who are new to the concept of helping the SVP, this is an opportunity to assist in the whole of the process required for this theater troupe's success -- which can include cleaning up, construction and other duties beyond acting. Individuals are asked to let Crawford know if they plan to participate, by sending an email to suwanneevalleyplayers@gmail.com. For students, this may count toward volunteer hours.

Visiting sheriff honors
The Thin Blue Line

Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods pays respect to the memory of the officers who gave their lives in the line of duty in Levy County and in Williston, and he speaks to the families of those men, to law enforcement officers and to the general public.

Story, Photos and Video
By Jeff M. Hardison © May 20, 2017 at 9:47 p.m.
As the bell in the pavilion rang 10 times to mark the moment, Williston Police Department Chaplain the Rev. Charlz Caulwell gave the opening prayer Friday morning (May 19).

     Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods was the keynote speaker as the Williston Police Department and Levy County Sheriff's Office hosted the Annual Law Enforcement Memorial. The visiting sheriff gave a memorable speech about the Thin Blue Line, about the fraternity and fellowship of law enforcement officers, about remembering two specific men who gave their lives in the line of duty, and about thousands more who paid the ultimate price as they protected life, property and freedom.

* In this video, Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods talks about the media scrutinizing law enforcement officers. He said officers are ‘targets for just wearing the uniform.’

WPD Chief Dennis Strow introduces his friend Marion County Sheriff Billy Woods.

     WPD Chief Dennis Strow introduced his friend Sheriff Woods after WPD Chief Deputy Clay Connolly spoke about the late WPD Cpl. David W. Moss and LCSO Undersheriff W.I. “Brett” Beauchamp III spoke about the late LCSO Deputy A. Hagood Ellzey.
     There were members of the Moss and Ellzey families at the memorial, and there were officers from various agencies in the audience as well as members of the general public.
     Carolyn McLain, 15, of Dunnellon played Amazing Grace on the bagpipes after Glenn Robinson played Taps on a bugle to end the program.
     The young Miss McLain was brought to the event by her mother Michele McLain, who said she is the chauffeur for her daughter on these occasions. The young piper is a member of the MCSO Pipes and Drums.
     In 2002, Ed Dean, then the high sheriff of Marion County, ordered that the Sheriff’s Pipes and Drums be formed. The Marion County Sheriff's Pipes and Drums is the only Pipe Band in the State of Florida to be an actual part of a law enforcement agency.
     Before the traditional music ended the program, there were words shared to help people honor some of the fallen.
     Sheriff Woods, who has served in the MCSO for 26 years and was elected sheriff last year, spoke about the noble calling and duties of law enforcement officers. And he addressed the loyalty to one another of members of this profession, and their loyalty to the laws that govern everyone.
     Law enforcement officers who come face to face with death hold steadfast faith against the overwhelming fear from danger, he said, at all times showing compassion for those they serve.
     President John F. Kennedy issued the following proclamation on May 4, 1963:

By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation

     Whereas, from the beginning of this Nation, law enforcement officers have played an important role in safeguarding the rights and freedoms which are guaranteed by the Constitution and in protecting the lives and property of our citizens; and
     Whereas, through constant application of new procedures and techniques, such officers are becoming more efficient in their enforcement of our laws; and
     Whereas it is important that our people know and understand the problems, duties, and responsibilities of their police departments and the necessity for cooperating with them in maintaining law and order; and
     Whereas it is fitting and proper that we express our gratitude for the dedicated service and courageous deeds of law enforcement officers and for the contributions they have made to the security and well-being of all our people; and
     Whereas, by a joint resolution approved October 1, 1962 (76 Stat. 676), the Congress has requested the President to designate May 15 of each year as Peace Officers Memorial Day and the calendar week during which such May 15 occurs as Police Week:
     Now, Therefore, I, John F. Kennedy, President of the United States of America, do hereby designate May 15, 1963, and May 15 of each succeeding year, as Peace Officers Memorial Day, in honor of those peace officers who, through their courageous deeds, have lost their lives or have become disabled in the performance of duty.
     I also designate the week of May 12 through May 18, 1963, and the calendar week during which May 15 occurs of each succeeding year, as Police Week, in recognition of the service given by the men and women who, night and day, protect us through enforcement of our laws.
     I invite State and local governments, patriotic, civic, and educational organizations, and the people of the United States generally, to observe Peace Officers Memorial Day and Police Week in this year and each succeeding year with appropriate ceremonies in which all our people may join in commemorating law enforcement officers, past and present, who by their faithful and loyal devotion to their responsibilities have rendered a dedicated service to their communities, and, in so doing, have established for themselves an enviable and enduring reputation for preserving the rights and security of all citizens.
     In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States of America to be affixed.
     DONE at the City of Washington this fourth day of May in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and eighty-seventh.

     Sheriff Wood said the symbol known as the thin blue line represents law enforcement officers seeking to uphold the law to protect people’s lives, property and freedom.
     Each year an average of 60,000 officers are assaulted, he said.
     During the past decade, an average of more than 140 officers have been killed each year in the line of duty in the United States.
     Throughout the history of the United States, in excess of 20,000 officers have made the ultimate sacrifice, Sheriff Woods said.
     The sheriff said men and women in law enforcement answer a noble calling.
     He addressed the next part of his speech to law enforcement officers.
     He said they are soldiers of the law, who are entrusted with an honor.
     “We must serve honestly, faithfully, and if need be, lay down our lives as other have before us,” Sheriff Woods said, “rather than swerve from the path of duty.
     “It is our duty to obey the law,” Wood continued, “and enforce it without consideration of class, color, creed, or condition. It is our duty to be of service to anyone who may be in danger or distress.
     “And at all times,” he continued, “conduct ourselves so that the honor of the badge or star may be upheld.”
     In the next part of his speech, he addressed other guests at the event.
     He mentioned that famous radio commentator Paul Harvey Aurandt (Sept 4, 1918 – Feb. 28, 2009), better known as “Paul Harvey,” was a famous radio broadcaster.
     However, many people do not know that he was the son of a police officer who was killed in the line of duty, when the future broadcaster was only 3 years old.
     One of Harvey’s famous sayings was “And now, for the rest of the story…”
     In 1970, Harvey broadcast the following:

“What are policemen made of?”
By Paul Harvey

     “A Policeman is a composite of what all men are, mingling of a saint and sinner, dust and deity.
     Gulled statistics wave the fan over the stinkers, underscore instances of dishonesty and brutality because they are "new.”
     What they really mean is that they are exceptional, unusual, not commonplace.
     Buried under the frost is the fact: Less than one-half of 1 percent of policemen misfit the uniform. That's a better average than you'd find among clergy!
     What is a policeman made of? He, of all men, is once the most needed and the most unwanted. He's a strangely nameless creature who is "sir" to his face and "fuzz" to his back.
     He must be such a diplomat that he can settle differences between individuals so that each will think he won.
     But...If the policeman is neat, he's conceited; if he's careless, he's a bum. If he's pleasant, he's flirting; if not, he's a grouch.
     He must make an instant decision which would require months for a lawyer to make.
     But...If he hurries, he's careless; if he's deliberate, he's lazy. He must be first to an accident and infallible with his diagnosis. He must be able to start breathing, stop bleeding, tie splints and, above all, be sure the victim goes home without a limp. Or expect to be sued.
     The police officer must know every gun, draw on the run, and hit where it doesn't hurt.He must be able to whip two men twice his size and half his age without damaging his uniform and without being "brutal." If you hit him, he's a coward. If he hits you, he's a bully.
     A policeman must know everything-and not tell. He must know where all the sin is and not partake.
     A policeman must, from a single strand of hair, be able to describe the crime, the weapon and the criminal- and tell you where the criminal is hiding.
     But...If he catches the criminal, he's lucky; if he doesn't, he's a dunce. If he gets promoted, he has political pull; if he doesn't, he's a dullard. The policeman must chase a bum lead to a dead-end, stake out 10 nights to tag one witness who saw it happen-but refused to remember.
     The policeman must be a minister, a social worker, a diplomat, a tough guy and a gentleman.
     And, of course, he'd have to be genius... For he will have to feed a family on a policeman's salary.
     After reading a version of this piece by Paul Harvey, Sheriff Woods said a person who believes Harvey’s words can truly understand the noble calling that men and women answer when they accept the duties of being a law enforcement officer.
     The sheriff then addressed the family members of the officers being honored and memorialized that day.
     Sheriff Woods said none of his words can bring comfort to them for their loss. He said time may heal them from this loss.
     The sheriff said over time all officers will be gone and forgotten. However the officers who gave their lives serve as a beacon for the nobility of the badge or the star.
     And these individuals are not just beacons for this generation, he continued “but for generations who are to come long after we have left this Earth.”
     As for the Thin Blue Line, the sheriff said the Thin Blue Line represents officers protecting society from evil and chaos, so that society remains good and orderly.
     The sheriff went on to say the Thin Blue Line also represents a strong bond between all law enforcement officers everywhere.
     This line demonstrates support by everyone in the profession for the tough job they must perform. It's an encouragement to stand on that line together in service of others.
     Sheriff Woods said that one sad duty he sees as sheriff is to attend funerals of fallen officers. He may not know the person who died in the line of duty, Sheriff Woods said, “…. And yet, when I stand at the funeral, a lump comes in my throat, and a tear will roll down my cheek.”
     This reflects the love between all officers that cannot be explained, he said. And this is part of that Thin Blue Line.

WPD Deputy Chief Clay Connolly speaks about the life of the late WPD Cpl. David W. Moss.

     Deputy Chief Connolly read the following:
     “Corporal David W. Moss was shot and killed while attemting to assist what he thought to be a disabled vehicle.
     “As 2:09 a.m. on July 30 (1988), Corporal Moss arrived at the scene of what appeared to be a disabled vehicle near the corner of Southwest Sixth Street and First Avenue in Williston. Eight minute later, Corporal Moss stopped responding to calls from dispatch. When his partner arrived on scene, he found both David and his assailant dead.
     “The forensic investigation showed Corporal Miss was shot and killed in a gunfight. Before Corporal Miss died he fired six rounds hitting his assailant with five of them.”
     Deputy Chief Connolly said this official statement talks about how Moss died. He gave listeners a little insight into the man’s life.
     Moss was 31 years old when he died, leaving behind a wife, a mortgage, a passel of animals and a vintage 1965 Chevy, Connolly said.
     Moss had joined the WPD in 1984, Connolly said, after serving in the United States Air Force and after being the dogcatcher in Williston. He love children and professional wrestling.
     On that fateful night, he was confronted by a dysfunctional ne’er-do-well who had a stolen pistol that was taken from a house where he had been “squatting illegally,” Connolly said.
     The disabled car that Cpl. Moss was investigating had been stolen by that man just minutes earlier, Connolly said.
     He was ambushed by the thief, “and yet he had the presence of mind to stop the threat before others could become victimized,” Connolly said.

     Undersheriff Beauchamp said that Sheriff Bobby McCallum was unable to be present for the memorial, and Beauchamp was serving to represent the LCSO.
     The late Deputy Ellzey is the only deputy with the Levy County Sheriff’s Office to have died in the line of duty, he said.
     Deputy Ellzey died Jan. 28, 1945 while on patrol in the city limits of Otter Creek by two men who luted him into a wooded area and shot him with a shotgun.
     Before dying, he was able to identify both men, and they were convicted and sentenced to spend the rest of their lives in prison.
     On May 3 of this year, Florida Senate Bill 368 was passed and this will allow for a section of road in the town of Otter Creek to be named in honor of Deputy Ellzey.
     Undersheriff Beauchamp specifically mentioned his appreciation for the efforts of State Rep. Charlie Stone (R-Ocala, Dist. 22) for Rep. Stone’s efforts leading to this bill reaching fruition.
     Several of the Ellzey family members continue to help people by their work in public service, Beauchamp said.

on the Home Page of HardisonInk.com
The Florida Department of Health in Dixie County (DOH-Dixie) issued a rabies alert for the Western portion of 389th Street (Spillers Highway), District 1 (zone-2) on Thursday (May 18) at 2:18 p.m. via an email forward by Levy County Sheriff's Office spokesman Maj. Scott Harden.

     This is in response to a raccoon that tested positive on May 17.
     This occurred after an Old Town man was working in his yard when a raccoon came out of the bushes and bit the resident.
     After being bitten, the resident called the Dixie County Sheriff's Office who then sent an Animal Control Officer to secure the raccoon so that it could be turned over to the Florida Department of Health to be tested.
     After the raccoon tested positive for rabies, the Department of Health published the following notice.
     All residents and visitors in Dixie County should be aware that rabies is present in the wild animal population and domestic animals are at risk if they are not vaccinated. The public is asked to maintain a heightened awareness that rabies is active in Dixie County.
