North Florida Holsteins Named 2005

Innovative Dairy Farmer Of The Year


At the Dairy Forum held re-
cently, North Florida Holsteins
LLC of Bell, was honored with
the 2005 Innovative Dairy
Farmer of the Year award,
which is co-sponsored by the
International Dairy Foods Asso-
ciation (IDFA) and Dairy Today
magazine. The largest single
dairy farm operation in the state,
North Florida Holstein covers
1,250 acres and has 3,600 cows,
producing 77 million pounds of
milk annually. Don Bennink,
managing partner, accepted the
award on the farm's behalf at
the January 10h ceremony.
The Innovative Dairy Farmer
of the Year award recognizes
U.S. dairy producers that apply
creativity, excellence and for-
ward thinking to achieve greater
farm productivity and improved
milk marketing. This is the
seventh year that the award has
been presented at -the Dairy Fo-
rum.
Nominated by Calvin
Covington, Southeast Milk,
Inc., this year's winner was
judged against 18 other nomi-
nations during the competition.
The judges were David Ander-
son of Texas A&M University;
Mark Stephenson of Cornell
University; Jim Dickrell, Dairy
Today editor; Bob Yonkers,
IDFA chief economist; and two
previous winners of this award:
John Pagel of Pagel's Ponderosa
Dairy and Jane Ledbetter of C
Bar M Dairy.
The judges were impressed
with Bennink's success at North
Florida Holsteins, particularly
since the Southeast is a tough
region for dairy farming due to
its hot and humid weather. Af-
ter beginning his dairy farming
career in the 1960s in New
York, Bennink moved south in
1980 to launch North Florida
Holsteins with 125 cows.
He originally planned to op-
erate in an open lot set-up using
western style shades. However,
a massive heat wave in June
1984 made Bennink change
'those plans and find novel ways
to lessen the effects of the area's


Monday

By John M. Ayers
A family who lived at 7440
SE 30h Street lost their home on
Monday afternoon when an
electric heating furnace was re-
ported to have been turned on
and a short time later smoke
was detected by the residents.
Mr. and Mrs. Wayne God-
win had returned home after
running some errands at around
noon on Monday, January 17th.
Gilchrist County Emergency
Management Assistant Director
Ron Mills reported that when
the couple returned home, the
weather was cool-so they de-
cided to turn their thermostat
down to activate the heating
system. The couple sat down
for lunch and recalled after
about ten minutes smelling
smoke when they evacuated the
residence. When the man and


woman left the residence, they
ran to a neighbor's home to ask
them to call 911 to dispatch the
fire service.
The Gilchrist County 911
Emergency dispatch received
the fire call at 12:24 p.m. "Less
than six minutes passed before
Station 21, Southeast Gilchrist
Volunteer Fire Department was
on the scene," Mills explained.
Station 20, Spring Ridge Vol-
unteer Fire Department, was the,
second company to reach the
burning mobile home structure.
Station 22, Fanning Springs Fire
Department, was called to-the
scene to support the need of
firemen and water. A short time
later Station 25, Trenton Fire
Department responded in a sup-
porting role.
The four fire departments re-
sponded with 13 fire fighters,


two engines and three tankers.
Mills explained that the
Florida State Fire Marshall's-
Office was called to investigate:
the incident. He explained that:
it is believed that the heating.
system could have been in-
volved in spreading the fire:
through the house by way of the:
duct system.
The firefighters remained on.

The firefighters were reported to:
have concluded work at this fire,
at 4:00 p.m.
It was reported that the.
Godwins lost everything in this'
fire. The American Red Cross:
was said to have met with the.
Godwin family on Tuesday to
assist with their needs. The
Godwins are staying with
friends at this time.

high temperatures and humidity
on his herd.
In a first step, North Florida
Holsteins added cooling ponds,
which proved to be an effective
way to keep cows cooler,
cleaner and healthier. As its
herd expanded, the farm kept on
top of advances in cow comfort
in order to better control the
cows' environment. In 2001,
North Florida Holsteins con-
verted a 250-cow, naturally
ventilated barn into a tunnel-
ventilated barn. This experi-
ment proved to be extremely
successful, with milk production
during the summer months in-
creasing by nearly nine pounds'
per cow per day, a net income
gain of $1 to $1.50 per cow per
day. Given this outcome, the


Local Songwriter
Featured On
Inspirational CD
By Anna Wild
Janie Rosa Lee Cox of
Branford moved here about 48
years ago from the Tampa area.
She started writing songs at a
very early age, pretty much as
soon as she could write. She
explains that she would just
have words come to her and felt
compelled to write them down.
Most of the songs she has writ-
ten are spiritual, but a few are
country. Early on she had to
deal with individuals who felt
her songwriting was foolish.
Luckily, after she married, a
good friend who was a music
director noticed her writing and
asked her what she was doing.
She explained how she liked to
write songs and her friend, Ma-
bel Gillette, asked to read her
work. Mabel was very pleased
with Janie's work and encour-
.aged her to keep writing, no
matter what some people might
say. Janie says that in looking
over some of her songs she
wonders where the words came
from. Not all of her songs have
been happy; some were influ-
enced by times in her life when
she had gotten away from the
church. Many of her writings
have come from dark times over
the years, but most of her writ-
ing has been influenced by her

operation is now working to
have its entire milking herd out
of open lots and in such barns
by this spring.
Other areas of innovation for
North Florida Holsteins include
forage production and on-farm
research. It was among the first
successful producers of corn si-
lage in the region, whose
weather and soil had stymied
other producers. -In fact, in
2004, more then 40,000 tons of
the crop were put up at the farm.
The operation is in the midst of
similar projects that involve rye
grass and alfalfa.
At any one time, North Flor-
ida Holsteins plays host to about
six research projects from uni-
versities, government agencies
and private companies. Studies


Janie Rosa Cox


have looked at such areas as
protecting groundwater, im-
proving farm profitability and
advancing Holstein genetics. In
addition, the operation has wel-
comed 200 international stu-
dents over the past 15 years as
part of its effort to train people
to manage large scale dairy
farms worldwide. Bennink
travels the globe as an ambassa-
dor for the U.S. dairy industry,
while also keeping active in his
local community.

Some Angels
Have Paws
By Anna Wild
Have you ever visited a rela-
tive in a nursing home and left
feeling depressed and not
knowing how to lift their spir-
its? For many people a nursing
home will be the last place they
live. Individuals may reside at a
nursing home for a number of
reasons, but just like being in.a
hospital for a long time, you can
,become depressed and with-
drawn. The staffs of the nursing
homes like Ayers Health & Re-
habilitation Center and Tri-
County Nursing Home work
very hard to keep their residents
emotionally fulfilled as well as
physically healthy. This is a
very challenging job at times.
Some individuals have stopped
talking to other people and a
few will even refuse to get out
of bed. These symptoms may
not sound life-threatening, how-
ever, if not overcome these in-
dividuals may pass away very
quickly. Some have illnesses
that have taken away their feel-
ing of self control and in cases
of Alzheimer's, their very self.
Many years ago researchers
started investigating the thera-
peutic effects of pets on elderly
patients. The results of the
testing started a whole new field
of patient care called "Pet Ther-

Comments,
By: John M. Ayers.
SThe Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation. Commission
announced that the new ,red
grouper, dolphin and wTahoo
rules are now in effect.
SThe red grouper rules restrict
recreational anglers from keep-
;ing more than two red grouper
Above the legal minimum:limit
:of 20 inches. These two fish are
-included in the five fish aggre-
gate bag limit which is allowed
for each recreational angler.
,This new rule applies, for the
Gulf of Mexico in both state
and federal waters. The legal
limit of red grouper in the At-
lantic Ocean remains at five fish
per angler.
: This rule was reported to
have been put into effect to help
rebuild the red grouper stocks in
the Gulf of Mexico. For more
information on the details of
this rule see the news release
which began on page one of this
issue.
SIt has been my experience
that the red grouper in Florida's
Big Bend is not experiencing a
problem regajrdi ng oer-
hgrvesting. My experience has
d termined that from ).JeO tp,
35 feet, there is a lot of grouper
of both red and gag species.
The only problem that I have
found is that when you fish in
more shallo\'w water, the fish are
plentiful, but the ratio of keeper
size fish is less than it would be
in 50 feet of water.
There are some places in the
more shallow areas that have
vast amounts of the limestone
bottom that hold more.of the red
grouper. When I come across'
this type of structure, by drop-
ping a piece of cut bait or a bit
.of squid to the.bottom. I can


easily determine whether red or
gag grouper are the more popu-
lated species in this location.
Often times the red grouper are
the easiest to catch because theN
seem to feed on a wider variety
6f baits. I have also seen that
gag grouper will eat cut bait or
squid, but if there is a red grou-
per on the bottom in the same
place, 1 ha'e watched the red
grouper take the bait before the
gig grouper decides he might be
interested in it.
I personally have never
caught an\ dolphin or wahoo
.off of Florida's Big Bend; but I
have heard of dolphin or mahi
mahi being caught in the spring
and fall \\hen the bait fish begin
their rmgration

Living At C
By: Manley Frost
By Manley Frost
The soldiers of Alpha Com-
pany 319th have been in Iraq for
over a month now and the
countdown to redeployment has
officially begun. The company
name has changed to Team
(TM) Storm, following the great
meteorological theme estab-
lished under Task Force (TF)
Hurricane. Meanwhile, it is
time once again for a deploy-
S pment update, and once again
here is the life of a TM Storm
r soldier-both good and bad,
good stuff first.
As you well know, the holi-
day season has come and gone..
... A few soldiers may have

those whose eyes and hearts
Were open, there was enough
holiday cheer to go around.

place was festive. A forest of

still the good half of the update.
The working environment has
changed for the better if for no
other reason than that there is
more room to work with now
that TF Hurricane has made
landfall. LTC Stewart has fre-
quented the workplace, speak'
ing one-on-one with the soldiers
to ensure everything is going
without a hitch. He also has
chow with the soldiers on a
regular basis, getting a feel for
morale and asking for personal
input.that could help make this
deployment better.
As for free time, soldiers now
get between two and four days
off a month, the goal being one
day off per week. This is great
for morale on many levels, giv-
ing soldiers a day of recupera-
tion as well as a sense of time as
each soldier's respective off day
becomes their version of Satur-
day.
Without it, the perpetual
repetition would make it very
difficult to keep track of time;
but with the day off there is al-
Say s something to-look forward
to during the week. And with
that free time, soldiers are able
to enjoy some of the finer things
in life, like sleep, video games.
movies, phone calls, and any of
the several shopping and rec-
reational opportunities available
on Camp Victory.
And now, for the other side.
The splendor of almost every-
thing has worn off rather
quickly: The Palace has gone
from a fascinating tourist at-
traction to a more mundane
workplace t\vith perks, like
taking your business into a mar-
ble restroom instead of a port-a-
john). And almost every mo-
rale-building facility now has a
corresponding duty, somehow
tainting it.
SThus far, this has been the
biggest complaint among sol-
diers. The MWR facilities must
be guarded and so there is a
duty. The barracks, while obvi-
ously a luxury on a deployment,
must also be guarded and
maintained
SAnd even the local nationals,
who work daily doing the things.
soldiers have neither the time
nor w ill to'do must be guarded.
ironically employing soldiers
anyway. With all this and more
taken into account, soldiers are
gone from their respective
workstations quite frequently:
But to play the devil's advocate,
it is for a good cause, that being
force protection, and therefore
most just suck it up 'and drive
on.'
So what are these duties like?
Glad: you asked. First off,
there's staff duty. That is es-
sentially the same as staff duty
anywhere and needs no further
explanation. Then, there are
barracks and MWR guard. On
these duties, two soldiers per fa-
cility stand 'outside, wearing
"full battle rattle" for 12 hours
at amber status (magazines
loaded, but round not cham-
bered) and ensure that no one
enters without proper authoriza-


tion.
Understandably, this duty can
get pretty dull pretty quickly
and leaves soldiers longing for
their relief to show up so that
they can change out of the
equipment and relax. Yet an-
other duty calls for a soldier to
monitor MWR usage within the
barracks. This particular duty is
not at all bad as it involves no
manual labor and affords the
soldier the opportunity to surf
the net all day and catch up on
emails, etc. Finally, there's Lo-
cal National (LN) escort-a
duty so special it deserves a
couple paragraphs all to itself.
LN duty begins early in the
morning and can be an all-day
affair.
Generally, soldiers escort a
number of LNs and watch them
perform their duties for as long
as it. takes to complete them.
These duties may be anything
from filling and stacking sand-
bags for force protection to con-
structing walls or bridges. Most
LNs speak little or no English,
but communication still
abourds.. They want every-
thing. From the gloes on a
soldier's hands to the Juicy
Fruit in the soldier's pockets,,
anything is fair game. TheN are
not afraid to ask and are very
persistent...like a flock of sea-.
gulls once one has been given a
piece of bread. They'll en-
lighten soldiers on all sorts of
.Arabic words, too, and have
some sick fascination in calling
one another "Ali Baba," and
poking fun at each other's mus-
taches.
They're generally very hard
workers, and are very resource-
ful, but are nonetheless a bunch
of characters.
J LN escort is a good opportu-
nity for soldiers to interact with
the nationals, pick up some
.choice Arabic words, and use
the Iraq Basic Language Sur-
vival Guide that was issued in
garrison. Soldiers can point ata
word in the Guide and have the
LN read the Arabic equivalent
and then perhaps even try their
hand at pronouncing it. And
when communication is good, it
can be a %wonderful thing. Many
LNs \\ill, tell.soldiers that they
could ne\er repay the US for
what we have done in their
country,'or r ill express the joy
theN felt when all the pictures oft
Saddam were removed from the
country: It's a heartwarming
moment (however difficult to
explain or even digest), which
presents a much nicer picture of
Iraq and indeed of OIF than that
painted by CNN on a daily ba-
sis.
Back in the barracks, despite
great improvements to both the
living' space and showering
situation, certain soldiers still
have not figured out the corre-
lation between lights.out and
"quiet time." Just as soon as the
lights are turned off, a magical
thing happens. Suddenly, eve-
ryone needs to access his or her
wall.lockers. And it's nota
simple thing, no; it's a very


complex, noisy thing that in-


complex, noisy thing that in-
volves at least 30 minutes of
endlessly staggered clatter fol-
lowed by a predictable grand fi-
nale, which trails off into a
handful of noisemakers, spo-
radically interrupting the would-
be serenity of light's out. The
alarm situation is somewhat im-
proved. It's no longer so much
a chorus of alarm clocks as it is
a few off-key a cappella-types
breaking out in song. without
being asked, and refusing to be
denied the stage despite being
booed off it. And then there are
those soldiers who've not heard
of headphones or simply do not
realize that their source of ein-
tertainment, while very good for
their own morale, might not be
as enjoyable to soldiers listening
in from the other side of the bar-
racks.
But overall, morale is still
good. There is now a lottery for
leave dates, and soldiers are
able to trade amongst one an-
other to get the date that he or
she wishes to go home. The
time off is a great morale
booster, as are the facilities
available to TM Storm soldiers.
And while duties are duties,
they can add a bit of variety to
the work week and variety, now
more than ever, is the spice of
life. Of course soldiers miss
friends and family more as the
reality of the deployment sinks
in, but the vague glimpse of
R&R and eventual redeploy-
ment on the horizon serve as
motivation to carry on day in
and day out.

In closing, TM Storm is con-
tinuously becoming decentral-
ized. In addition to working in
different places and on different
shifts, a few soldiers will tem-
porarily be working elsewhere
as the overall mission dictates.
With leaves and duties also
factored in, it seems that TM,
Storm soldiers are seeing less
and less of each other, but rest.:
assured that the Company integ-
rity remainsstrong. We are all
still working towards the same
end, just using different means
to get there. Ultimately, the
cause is just and soldiers and
families alike can take pride in
that. The unification of the
-troops through personal and
professional"camaraderie arid
support from all..those at.home.
who eagerly await their return isI
the fuel that keeps this tank
rolling steadily onward through'

(Kent Heaton) .


No man seeks to be poor. Sustaining life is a
constant challenge man has faced since creation.
Through blessings and circumstances, man\ hate
reached great levels of comfort and wealth while e .
others continually struggle \ ith maintaining the
basic needs. Man never, desires poverty. Jesus
uses the idea of poverty to declare the nature of
His kingdom. To the miultitude gathered on, the
mountain He says, "Blessed are the poor in spir-
it, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven" (Mat-
thew 5:3). The kind of poverty used by Jesus does
not suggest one who is so poor he must struggle
to exist but rather the poverty that declares a de-
pendency upon others for support. The kingdom
of God is about man having reliance upon the
Creator.
SWealth has a way of making man believe more
in himself than in God: This wealth can come
from the material gain or from ones on pride. Re-
gardless, to be part of the kingdom of God, man
must empty himself and depend upon God for
everything. To 'be "poor in spirit" requires the
emptying of self for the acceptance of the Father.
Later in the sermon on the mount, Jesus exhorts
the multitude to lay up treasures in heaven (Mat-
thew 6:19-21), serve only God (Matthew. 6:24)
and learn poverty of spirit by giving the heart
solely to seeking the kingdom of God (Matthew
6:25-34).
To be poor in spirit is to have the heart of a
child. Matthew 18:1-4 records, "The disciples
came to Jesus, saying, 'Who is the greatest in
the kingdom of heaven?' And calling to him a
child, he put him in the midst of them, and said,
'Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become
like children, you will never enter the kingdom
of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this
child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heav-
en.'" Children understand the nature of spiritual
poverty. They have hearts pure and innocence
that depend upon others to take' care of their
needs. When we enter the kingdom of God, we


are to empty our hearts of our pride and depen-
dence of self to a willingness to accept the \ill of
God in every wayv.
Those w ho submit themselves to the Father char-
acterize the kingdom of God. Paul reminded the
church at Corinth, "For you see your calling,
brethren, that not many wise according to the
flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are
called" (1 Corinthians 1:26). The church is not
about the wisdom of man. The kingdom, of God
will not be for the glory of man. God has always re-
quired those who follow Him to submit their wills
completely to Him and to ,Him alone. Poverty of
spirit recognizes that without God, nothing can be
done in life.
To be "poor in spirit" is to know that by God's
grace we have the blessings of this world. Whether
great or small, all that we have is dependant upon
God. Our hearts are not lifted up in pride but filled
with the humility of trust we have in God. Paul
writes of his own poverty: "Not that I complain of
want; for I have learned, in whatever state I am,
to be content. I know how to be abased, and I
know how to abound; in any and all circumstanc-
es I have learned the.secret of facing plenty and
hunger, abundance and want. I can do all things
in him who strengthens me" (Philippians 4:11-13).
His poverty of spirit allowed him to sing in prison
(Acts 16:25), declare righteousness and truth before
kings (Acts 26) and-have confidence in the crown
of life that awaited him in death (2 Timothy 4:6-8).
Our thanksgiving should abound for the bless-
ings we enjoy. The opportunity to labor with our
hands, enjoy a portion of health, find comfort in our
homes and look to a bright future can only be meas-
ured by the poverty of spirit we'find in the kingdom
of God. The wise man said, "A man's pride will
bring him low, but the humble in spirit will retain
honor" (Proverbs 29:23). May God enrich our
lives with poverty of spirit. "Humble yourselves
before the Lord and he will exalt you" (James
4:10).

Theme For This
Year's Chamber

This year the Chamber's
theme is, "Shop Local! It Does
Our County Good!" In keeping
with this, the Chamber is now
offering an exciting new pro-
gram, the "Members-Only Dis-
count Cards" for all chamber
members. The discount cards
will enable members to receive
discounts on products or serv-
ices offered by member busi-
nesses. They will encourage
people to use their local shops
and services before going out of
town.
If you are a chamber busi-
ness, this is a great advertising
opportunity and it is free for
you to participate; the only cost
to you will be whatever dis-
count you will offer.
The overall goal of this pro-
ject is for a small investment on
your part, i.e. your discount,
you will increase your sales and
exposure for your business, and
help .promote the Chamber in
the process.
Members, who receive the
card will also receive a brochure
with an up-to-date listing of all
discounts given. The list will be
updated weekly on the brochure
and the website page devoted to
this project.
If you are a Chamber member
business, please consider offer-
ing such a discount. pnd, ook,


for the flyer that was sent out
last week. Return the flyer as
soon as possible so that we may
implement this program right
away.

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
Now that the holiday season
is all over, you may want to set-
tle down and read a good book.
Many times I find a new book
at Bell Library and think this is
the best book I have ever read
but then I will remember
something I read last week or
last month and I had felt the
same way. Or maybe it is a new
author I have found and I think
this person is the very best until
I find someone I like even bet-
ter.
The author whose book I read
this week is Kathy Reichs and
the novel was Fatal Voyage.
While traveling from Charlotte
to Knoxville, Tempe Brennan
was notified a plane had crashed
in the North Carolina mountains
and she, a forensic anthropolo-
gist, was directed to join the
search team to look for survi-
vors. Most of the passengers
were members of a the Univer-
sity of Georgia soccer team
flying to meet another team in
competition. The ages of the
flight crew and team officials
were all listed as being under
the age of 50. Everything
seemed to go well until parts of
the body of an elderly person
was discovered. How did it
come to be in this area?
Students in classes from fifth
grade- and below are reminded
of the reading contest in pro-
gress at Bell Library with good
prizes for you. Come in and
check out the books then come
back and speak with the librar-
ian on duty about the book.
Reading ten books is required to
compete for the prizes.
We are still looking for quali-
fied volunteers to assist with
operating the library. Call or
come in and we will discuss this
with you.
If you have overdue booksrwe
would encourage you to bring
these back. There are others
who are anxious to read them.
Remember when you sign that
library card you are making a
promise to return the b6ok by a
specific date and we, are trusting
you to do as you have promised.
Hoping to see you soon.

People and its History."
The book's historical accounts
start in 1910 and have some in-
formation which is not dated
about events prior to the county
being formed.
The book is expected to be
available the. end of January
2005. This will spark some cu-
riosity and perhaps some fond
memories. As with any histori-.
cal book, the Woman's Club
knows this is not complete, the
moment you put history in
writing it changes or you learn
new things. For this reason
anyone who has more informa-
tion or has more photographs
they want to share with the
Woman's Club, please let them


know. The club will use the ad-
ditional information in the next
edition that will be just a few
years down the road. In the
meantime if you are interested
in learning how to obtain your'
copy, call Diana Harrison at-
(352) 463-2147 or Susan Bryant

blend of music by The Easter
Brothers.
This country and Gospel
group formed in 1953, consist-
ing of Russell Easter (banjo,
guitar, and vocals), James
Easter (guitar, mandolin, and
vocals), and Ed Easter (mando-
lin, banjo, and vocals). They
grew up greatly influenced by
bluegrass music, in particular
that of a Gospel nature.
The trio of men Ed, Russell,
and James are helping forge a
new frontier in Gospel music
with their unique style. Their
fabulous harmony, augmented
by the purity of their instru-
ments is further enhanced by the
clear-cut message of faith and
inspiration that mark their
songs.

Hear David Ring At
Trenton First Baptist
Church February 13
"You've Never Heard A
Speaker Like David Ring!"
Nationally known speaker
David Ring will be speaking at
Trenton First Baptist Church on
Sunday morning, February 13,
2005 at 10:00 a.m. You won't
want to miss the opportunity of
being blessed by hearing this
man's testimony. It will change
your outlook on life.
David was born with cerebral
palsy on October 28, 1953 in
Jonesboro, Arkansas. After
being orphaned at an early age,
David was cast about from
"pillar to post." Life seemed
worse than hopeless to him until
his relationship began with Je-
sus Christ who taught him self
respect and an acceptance of his
physical challenges.
As a .nationally know n
speaker since "1973, Davidf
shares his story with over
100,000 people each year at
churches, conventions, schools
and corporate events. He has
been featured on numerous oc-
casions on The Old Time Gospel
Hour with Reverend Jerry Fal-
well, as well as other nationally
televised and radio programs.
David always focuses on an
individuals' need to overcome
personal handicaps and adversi-
ties of life. As one who has not
been stifled by his physical
limitations, he clearly states his
challenge to everyone, "I have
Cerebral Palsy, What's Your
Problem?" To most, physical
challenges of this-magnitude
would prove to be a tombstone.
For David Ring, his coming of
age was, and remains, a mile-
stone.
For more information you
may call Trenton First Baptist
Church at 463-2038. The
church is located on Wade
Street, two blocks east of the
traffic light in Trenton.

Jean Wonser earned her 5,000
mile Medallion Sunday January
16E competing at Gator Run
Endurance 50 in the Osceola
National Forest. She saddled
FMR Seneca, an eight-year old
Arabian mare who now has 520
miles of competition, halfway to
her first Medallion. The team
completed in a tie for 12th
place, riding with a Pennsylva-


nia rider formerly of Florida in
6:12.
The ride was rough, tough
and dirty in addition to cold
with wind chill a factor all day.
Much of the trail was so muddy
that walking was the wise gait.
But on the road it was boogie
time.
One of life's wilder moments
was in the Robinson Branch
ford with water above the
mare's sternum she tripped on
the left front and started to go
down. When her nose hit the
water, a shprt distance at that
depth, she recovered herself and
continued the balance of the 50-

Bell Boys Basketball
Team Defeats
Cedar Key
By Jason Avery
The Bell High School Gym-
nasium was full of Bulldog.fans
on Tuesday January 12th. The
Bell Boys Basketball team
looked to improve their season.
with a win over Cedar Key. As
Bell took the court, and the fans
cheered their alma mater, the
game was underway.
The first quarter started off
with Cedar Key's guard #15
running down the court, and
making. a shot before all the fans
were seated. This would not be-
the story for the rest of the
night. As the Bulldogs took the
ball down the court #1 Todd
Scaggs was fouled taking it to
the basket and, made his free
throws to tie the game at two
apiece. Cedar Key \o would hit'
another shot, but t#32 Zack
Woolsey hit t\wo free throws of
his own and tied it again.
As Cedar Key \would inbound
the i~'al [od Sqggs stole the
ball and hit a lay-up to give Bell
its first lad of the game. Bell
would not trail again in this
contest. Later in the first quar-
ter Bell's guard Todd Scaggs
started a great fast-break and
scored again for Bell. On the
ensuing possession for Cedar
Key, the Sharks threw an awful
pass down 'the middle of the
court and it was stolen by
Scaggs. who having an amazing
night, scored again. When #34
Darrel Dees got fouled 'and
made a free throw to give Bell
an 11-4 lead \ ith three minutes
left in the opening quarter. With
some more scores by Darrel
Dees and #44 Buck Douglas,
Bell had, a commanding 8-16
lead at the end of the first quar-
ter.
At" the beginning of the sec-
ond quarter: #0 Brandon Ridge-


way missed a shot, but #32
Zack Woolsey cleaned it up as
he put back the miss. On the
next possession for Cedar Key
the inbound pass was stolen and
#32 Zack Woolsey pulled up to
hit a jump shot. On Bell's next
possession #2 Jeffery Strickland
passed it under the basket to-
Zack Woolsey, who was also
having a great night, hit another
lay-up to put Bell ahead with
1:54 left until halftime. Later in
the quarter Darrel Dees took the
ball to the basket, he made the
shot and got fouled. Darrel then
made his free throw. Cedar Key
couldn't make a basket or keep
up with the Bulldogs who began
to really cruise. At halftime
Bell owned a 28-13 lead.
At the beginning of the third
quarter the game pretty, much
continued the way it started.
Darrel Dees made a lay-up to
begin the third quarter. Cedar
Key couldn't produce any
points, and Bell marched down
the dourt and #4 Brent Strick-
land pulled up and hit a beauti-
ful three to give Bell a 13-35
lead. Later in the third Todd
Scaggs again came down the
court on a fast-break only to
finish it off with a great lay-up.
On Bell's next possession Dees
worked it inside and made an-
other great shot to expand the
Bulldog'lead to 39-15. .Todd
Scaggs would just continue to
take control of this game as he
scored the next four points by
himself on two breakaways
down the court to build 43-17
lead late in the third quarter. As
the quarter progressed Bell
would go on a 7-0 run to end the.
third quarter % ith a 50-17 lead.
In the fourth quarter #3
Cla\ton GregorN \would hit an-
other three for Bell, and it
would just escalate into a great
win for this Bulldog squad. At
the end of the game, when it
was all said and done, Bell had
won 63-22 over the Cedar Key
Sharks. The Bulldog faithful
were ecstatic and joyful to say
the least as 'their home, team
celebrated a much needed win
for Bell. Bell will play
Branford at the Bell High
School Gymnasium on Friday,
January 21st and Bronson on
Tuesday, January 25th also at

look and plan ahead but Social
Security in its present form will
be able to cope for the next 50
years before it lapses.
However, the idea of encour-
aging younger workers to put
their retirement money into the
Stock Market instead of a
proven plan, such as Social Se-
curity, is amounting to encour-
aging them to go to the casinos
and play the slot machines or
make wagers at the card tables.
The AARP is opposed to the
present plan being proposed and
has issued the following state-
ment to its members. It was
taken from AARP Grassoots
Update.
Dear AARP Members:
There is a lot of misinforma-
tion about Social Security. We
want to make it clear where
AARP stands on this issue: We
stand with you.
Let's look at the facts: Social
Security is the most successful
program in our nation's history.
It is a promise our country
makes to working Americans
and retirees. And a promise
should not have an expiration
date.
While Social Security is
strong now and in no danger of
going broke, it is true that the
program needs some changes so
it will always be able to pay full
benefits for all generations of
SAmericans today and tomor-
Srow. The changes needed don't
have to be drastic, and the guar-
antee Social Security provides is
one worth strengthening, not re-
placing. The longer we wait to
do this, the more difficult steps
we will have to take.
At AARP, we have a number
of good ideas on how to make
the adjustments needed, and
would be glad to share them
with you. Visit our web site at
f www.aarp.org/socialsecurity.


Bell Elementary
Pre-K Busy Cooking
The Pre-K children at Bell
Elementary School have been
busy cooking through the
ABCs. They have been cooking
blueberry muffins, cake, donuts,
and green eggs. They also have
been sorting foods such as jelly
beans and M&M candies.

Our country needs a full na-
tional discussion of all the ideas
on the table. One idea being put
forward is in the wrong direc-
tion for fixing Social Security,
and will actually make the
problem worse, not better.
Taking some of the money that
workers pay into the system and
diverting it into newly created
private accounts would weaken
Social Security and put benefits
for future generations at risk.
AARP is opposed to private
accounts that take money out of
Social Security.
In addition, private accounts
are expensive. Just to switch to
this new system could require as
much as $2 trillion or more in
benefit cuts, new taxes, or more
debt. Most of us would then
have to pay twice to gamble on
this new plan first to keep our
commitments to current retirees
and again to pay into these pri-
vate accounts. Some critics of
these personal accounts think
that Wall Street, not retirees,
would be the real beneficiaries.
To join in this fight call (800)
335-6946 or go to
www.aarp.org/socialsecurity for
more information.
That is like preaching to the
converted. It is the younger
generations who will be most
affected.

GREETINGS
These two cute baby opos-

mother's pouch, but they're not
quite ready to let go of each
other, are they?

Beauty is a reflection of all

love. It begins inside long be-
fore it shows itself on the sur-
face...

RIB TICKLERS
The following quotes are ac-
tual statements found on insur-


ance forms where car drivers
attempted to summarize the de-
tails of an accident in a few
words:
SComing home, I drove into
the wrong house and collided
with a tree I don't have.
The other car collided with
mine without giving warning of
its intentions.
I thought my window was
down, but I found it was up
when I put my hand through it.
I collided with a stationary
truck coming the other way,
A pedestrian hit me and went
under my car.
A tuck backed through my
windshield into my wife's face.
The guy was all over the road,
I had to swerve a number of
times before I hit him.
I pulled away from the side of
the road, glanced at my mother-
in-law, and headed for the em-
bankment.
As I approached the intersec-
tion, a sign suddenly appeared
in a place where, no stop sign
had ever appeared before. I was
unable to stop to avoid the acci-
dent.
To avoid hitting the bumper,
of the car in front, I struck the
pedestrian.
My car was legally parked as
it backed into the other vehicle.
I told the police that I was not
injured, but on removing my
hat, I found that I had a frac-
tured skull.
The pedestrian had no idea
which direction to run, so I ran
over him.
The indirect cause of this ac-
cident was a little guy in a small
car with a big mouth.
An invisible car came out of
nowhere, struck my vehicle and
vanished.
I saw a slow-moving, sad
Faced old gentleman as he
bounced off the hood of my car.
I was sure the old fellow
would never make it to the other
side of the road when I struck
him.
I was thrown from my car as
it left the road. I was later
found in the ditch by some stray
cows.
The telephone pole was ap-
proaching. I was attempting to
swerve out of its way, when it
struck my front end.
I was on the way to the doctor
with some rear end trouble,
when my universal joint gave
way, causing me to have an ac-
--cident. sa 'f ""V
I had been driving for 40
yearss whiln"tfelt asleep at the
wheel and had an accident.
In my attempt to hit a fly, I
drove into a telephone pole.

After his marriage broke up,
my manager became very phi-
losophical. "I guess it was in
our stars," he sighed.
:What do you mean?" I
asked.
."Her astrological sign is the
one for earth. Mine is the one
for water. Together we made
mud."

When I went inside the sta-
tion to pay for my tank of gas, I
noticed a sign asking patrons to
tell the cashier the number of


their pump. Even though I was
the only customer, I decided to
be silly and tell him anyway.
"I'm Number One," I an-
nounced.
He smiled. "Well, now.
Looks like those motivational
tapes are really working for
you."

"How come if you mix flour
and water together you get
glue? And when you add eggs
and sugar you get cake? Where
does the glue go?"

Creativity isn't about pretend.
Rather, it's knowing what gets
you going and following it...

A Prayer For Children
Lord, please bless my children,
Protect them day and night;
Lead them down the right roads,
Forever in Thy sight.
Let them know Th. presence
Each step along the way,
Giving strength and courage
To sustain them, come what
may.
Be their consolation
In times of woe and strife,
Guide them past the pitfalls
On their journey through this
life.
And when this life is over,
See them safely to that shore,
Where peace and love are
boundless
Beyond.Heaven's golden door.

Some of the Levy County Horse Club members who celebrated the holidays with their
hnrs.es and friends.


Horses And Holidays
By Bonnie Wilson
Holidays are a special time of
year that we all look forward to.
A time when friends get to-
gether to celebrate and to share
with one another. The Levy
County Horse Club, a non-profit
organization, knows how to
celebrate the holidays with fun,
good cheer ard a few of their
favorite friends. Some of their


friends are of the four-legged
variety. They are indeed horses.
Horses, like their owners, come
in 1ll shapes and sizes. You
may feel a little bit like
"Goldilocks" in the fairy tale
with the three bears, until you
find the one that's just right.
When you do, it's pure magic.
Club members celebrated a
Christmas ride at the Tidewater
trailhead in Goethe State Forest
and a New Year's Day ride at


Blackprong trailhead, also in
Goethe State Forest which en-
compasses over 50,000 acres lo-
cated in southeastern Levy
County. Beautiful, wooded
trails, enough to charm any trail
rider, LCHC members were de-
lighted with the wonderful
weather provided. Fresh air,
sunshine, and a wonderful four-
legged friend, who could ask for
more? Florida is truly a horse
lover's state.
LCHC meets at The Olde
Boarding House Restaurant in
Trenton the 2nd Thursday of
each month at 6:00 p.m. for
dinner and conversation and the
meeting follows at 7:00 p.m.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY
SilNFORMATION


SThis form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible Per-
sonal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.
Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as
furniture, .fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
sighs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to
earn income.
Q. Who must file?
A. 'Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has ei-
ther a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-
employed agent or contractor, must file each year. Property
owners who lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible person-
al property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's
office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has de-
termined that you may have property to report. If you feel
the form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Ei-
ther way, the forni MUST be returned. Failure to receive a
Personal Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you
of your obligation to file.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangi-
ble Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact
the Property Appraiser's Office.
Q. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a
return?
A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill
out items 1 through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation
of why nothing was reported. However, almost all business-
es and rental units have some assets to report even if it is only
supplies, rented equipment or household goods.
Q. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return?
A. Yes, if you were not in'business on January 1- of the tax-
ing year, follow this procedure:
1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business
and the-manner in which you disposed of your business as-
sets. Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on
them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
.Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A.' When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required
to place an assessment on the property. This assessment rep-
resents an estimate based on the value of business with simi-
lar equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate
your responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears
on the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us.
If you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome
the opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.
Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year -
Who is responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insuffi-
cient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January
1 would be responsible for the difference. Most title compa-
nies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a business.
You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing
agent to avoid problems in this area.


HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS
*File the original return with this office (with
name and account number preprinted), as soon
as possible before April 1. Be sure to sign and
date your return.
Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identi-
fy any equipment that may have been "Physical-
ly Removed". List those items in the appropri-
ate space on your return.
*' If you have an asset listing or depreciation
schedule that identifies each piece of equipment,
attach it to your complete return.
Do not use vague terms such as "various" or
"same as last year'.
It is to your advantage to provide a break-
down of assets since depreciation on each
item may vary,
Please include your estimate of fair market val-
ue and the original cost of the item on your re-
turn. They are important considerations in de-
termining an accurate assessment.
Additional information regarding filing is pro-
vided in the instructional section of the return it-
self.
If you sell your business, go out of business,
or move to a new location, please inform this of-
fice. It will enable us to keep timely, accurate
records.

S(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one loca-
tion, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated
and written off the books?
A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or not, all
property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to-report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or
are provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those assets.
Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must be
filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I
have to file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature, you
must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that
should be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any oth-
er personal property included in the rental unit.

Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April L After April 1,
Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is
required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, January 13th at the
Levy'County Quilt Museum.
Today was welcome home
day. How good it is to have
Sarah Small, Dorothy Riggs,
and Elvena Davidson back
from Illinois. They chose a
quilt top to quilt while they are
here this winter. We all en-
joyed having Fran Ice and
Emmy Reidy who had lunch
with us. We brought out lots
of boxes of fabric, books and
what have you to get rid of.,
Many people bring out what
they think we can use and the
members have a great time
going through all the boxes.
We will have it out for a cou-
ple of weeks and then we have-
someone to haul it away.
Come out you might find
'something you can use.
Jarrod Jones and I traveled
to Tampa last Friday to take
the quilts and crafts to the state
fair. It's always so amazing to
see this huge building empty
and when we go back in Feb-
ruary everything is put in place
so all can see what has been
done. We have spaces on the
bus available and if you want
to go call 493-2801 as it is a
first come, first serve. We
pick up at Old Town,
Chiefland and Williston on
February 15h. We leave at
4:30 p.m. to come home.
Lunch was great with
chicken and dressing, meat
loaf, lots of vegetables, salad
and apple pie, pear cobbler,
pound cake and so much more.
We had 23 present.

Conservation


Program Available
For Area Farmers
And Ranchers
By Portia Sache
The United States Department
of Agriculture provided an in-
formational public meeting for
agricultural producers concern-
ing a new Conservation Security
Program (CSP) on January 11,
2005 at the Gilchrist County
Commission Meeting Room in
Trenton. The program was tar-
geted for agricultural producers
with conservation practices ap-


plied on private lands in the
Lower Suwannee Watershed.
The Conservation Security
Program (CSP) was authorized
in the 2002 Farm Bill and began
in 18 watersheds, none of which
were located in Florida. In
2005, the CSP program was ex-
panded into one watershed in
Florida, the Lower Suwannee
Watershed which includes most
of Levy County.
The CSP is a voluntary pro-
gram designed to financially
reward farmers, ranchers, and
growers who are actively
working to conserve natural re-
sources on their private lands.
The length of the agreement will
range from five to ten years
with annual payments based on
length of agreement and the
level or "tier" of conservation
practices by the participantss.
The United States has 202
watersheds. Eventually the CSP
program will be phased into
each watershed in the country.
It is anticipated that the CSP
program will reward the best
conservationist and motivate the
rest of.the country's conserva-
tionists.
Farmers, ranchers, and land-
owners in Levy County may
contact District Conservationist
Keisha Brown about this pro-
gram. Ms. Brown's office is lo-
cated in the Levy County Agri-
cultural Complex in Bronson.
Her telephone number is (352)
486-2672, extension 3.

"Food Check Out
Day" Is February 7
By February 7th, the average
American will have earned
enough income to pay for the
entire year's food supply, and
state agriculture leaders are en-
couraging Floridians to remem-
ber the efforts of the farmers
who make this feat possible.
"Americans enjoy the safest,
most abundant and most afford-
able food supply on earth,"
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said.
"Based on U.S. Department of
Agriculture statistics, it takes
just 37 days for the average
American to earn enough dis-
posable income to pay for his or
her family's food supply for the
entire year."
"Food Check-Out Day is a
celebration of the bounty from
America's farms .and ranches
and how that bounty .is shared
with American -eoffStmers
through affordable food prices,"
said Carl Loop, president of the
Florida Farm Bureau Federa-
tion. "Compared to other ex-
penses facing America's fami-
lies, food is a bargain. While
Americans must only work until
early February to pay for their
yearly food supply, last year
they had to work until April 11th
to pay for their taxes."
The idea for Food Check-Out
Day was developed by the


The Lancaster Correctional Institution Employee's Club sponsored a Christmas party
for the children of staff members on December 20, 2004. Festive decorations were
everywhere. Each child had an opportunity to talk with Santa Claus and also received
a gift bag. Great food was enjoyed by parents and children alike.

The January meeting will be on Saturday, January 22, beginning at
10:00 AM. After the meeting, the lunch will be hamburgers and covered
dish items to go with the hamburgers. Plan to bring a dish to share with
our fellow Legionnaires and guests. Enjoy a meal with our Post 91
Legionnaires and families. Plan to come to this daytime meeting and
bring your family and fellow veterans with you. The Post is trying to
make it easier for some of our Legionnaires to attend a meeting
occasionally to keep. in touch with the Post and it's programs. If this
meeting does not bring more than the last Saturday meeting, we may not
do this in the next quarter. Post 91 wants Legionnaires coming to the
meetings and getting involved in the programs. There are many different
ways that our Legionnaires can help out besides just donating money.
Volunteer hours help in many ways. Plan to attend this Saturday at 10:00
AM and stay for lunch. If you would, bring along a covered dish to share,
something that goes with hamburgers. Desserts are fine too. Bring sons
and grandsons with you, especially if they are interested in the Sons of
the American Legion organization. The SAL has programs just like the
Legion and often assists the American4Legion with their programs and
activities. In 2003, the Sons of the American Legion attained an all time
high membership of over 280,000 members nationally. And there is more
to the SAL than just membership.
On all levels, the SAL Squadrons have worked together with the
American Legion to promote Children and Youth programs, including the
Child Welfare Fund, in which the SAL has raised over $274,000, just in
2003 alone. Since 1988, the SAL Squadrons have raised over $2,000,000
for the Child Welfare Foundation. On top of that, SAL members have
donated .over 195,000 volunteer hours to the Veterans Hospitals
throughout the country and raised over $1,900,000 that has gone directly
to VA hospitals and VA homes for a variety of items including TVs,
radios, medical equipment, and clothes for the patients. The SAL is a way
that those who never went into service, for whatever reason, can work
with and for our American veterans and the youth of our community. As.
part of the American Legion family, the SAL can do things with the
Legion to make America a better place.
Another part of the American Legion family is the Auxiliary. The
women in these Units have their own programs and agendas, just like the
Legion. They do not, however, work for or under the American Legion.
The Auxiliary is a separate organization that DOES work with the Legion
at times on programs of mutual interest. There is also a young Auxiliary
program for those young women that want to help too.
The Ameiican Legion 'family' of the Legion, Auxiliary and SAL has a
total membership of nearly 4.2 million members. Why not come out and
be a part of that family and work for the veterans and the youth in our
community.
Remember our Armed Forces all over this world each day in our,
prayers and thoughts. And here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those service members called to
active duty, helping when and where we can.
For God and Country,

Bronson Warns
Homeowners That
Termite Season Is
Here


Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is warning
homeowners that this is the time
of year when termites begin to
S"swarm" or leave their colonies
to search for new nesting sites.
Many homeowners discover
.that they have a termite problem
when they find termite swarm-
ers (winged, black insects about
1/4 inch long) in their homes..
Termites can cause consum-
ers to lose their largest eco-
nomic asset their homes and.
are responsible for over $700
million in costs, to consumers in
Florida each year for damage
and control costs. Termites are.
a fact of life' i Florida anlpd'-peo.'-
pie need to actively protect their
homes by using a licensed pro-
fessional pest control company
to provide termite protection
services.
"This is a good time of year
for consumers to check their
contracts with licensed pest
control companies to make sure
They are current," Bronson said.
"Anyone who has questions
about their pest control contract.
or company can call us at 800-
HELPFLA. Considering the
cost of a house, it's frightening
to think that about half the
homeowners in Florida have not
taken steps to protect this in-
vestment from these damaging
insects."

apy."
Despite the name "Pet Ther-
apy" sounding like a dog getting
a massage, what really happens
is an animal gets to visit a resi-
dent of a nursing home or reha-
bilitation center. What happens
during this visit is a most
amazing thing. A smile will
almost immediately be seen, a
hand will probably be stretched
out to touch the visitor and
when this patient sees that their
visitor wants to be with them,
well it can bring a tear to your
eyes. Research has proven that
pets impact the elderly in many
ways. For instance, seniors
with pets have fewer medical
needs such as lower cholesterol
and triglyceride levels, have a
higher one year survival rate
following coronary heart dis-
ease, are encouraged to play,
exercise and laugh more and the
list goes on.

given to the staff of Ayers as a
puppy and since his arrival, life
at Ayers comes with more
smiles. The residents look for
Barney daily. Some keep dog
treats in their rooms or keep a
couple on hand as they partici-
pate in different activities at the
center. Barney has a few favor-
ite residents that he will even
take a midday nap with. He has
helped those who came to the
center withdrawn start to come
out of their shell. He helps
them talk to other people and
gives them a reason to get out of
bed. Activity is very important
for the elderly. As we get older
we get less active. Sometimes a
dog will.spark the interest nec-
essary to get the resident to get
up and do something, even the
act of petting a dog will have a
positive effect.
At Tri-County Nursing Home
you feel the difference the min-
ute you walk through the front
doors. The front waiting area
has birds anxious to chirp and
bob to you. You can't help but
talk to them. Then as you make
your way to a room you will
probably see Zena, a five-year
old chocolate lab, or Jiffy, a
three-year old terrier mix. They
make rounds to all the residents
and make sure everyone has had
their daily puppy "luv." Zena
was donated to the nursing
home and Jiffy was found aban-
doned at the Jiffy Store. They
both have the perfect personal-
ity for pet therapy so they -got to


stay.
If you make your way to a
patio you will meet Morris,
Mikey, Fluffy, Spikey and a few
of their friends. The nursing
home also has about ten outside
cats that visit the residents. All
of the pets have been spayed or
neutered and all have annual ex-
ams to keep their shots up-to-
date and check for any health is-
sues.
Both facilities are examples
of the positive effects of pet
therapy. In both of these cases
.the pets have found moving,
nurturing homes. And in both
cases residents have visitors that
come daily, are openly happy to
see them and will never judge
them. As I had the chance to
visit both facilities and speak to
their activities directors, both
indicated several cases in which
residents had shut themselves
off from others. After some
time with a dog or cat they
would start to. talk. At first they
may only talk about a pet they
had a long time ago, but they
were communicating. From
there they talk to others about
the animal they perhaps enjoy
most. In time they are social
individuals who can communi-
cate to the staff and residents.
The act of communication
sounds so simple, but if some-
one is not talking to you, you
will not know what their true
needs may be. The same is said
for individuals who have de-"
cided to just stay in bed. This

family.
Janie goes by "Rosa Cox" in
the songwriting world. She
started learning about the pro-
duction process many years ago.
Then about ten years ago she
decided it was time to try to get
some of her songs produced.
She looked at various ads for
songwriters in magazines and
did some research on a couple
of companies. Janie explained
that you do have to be careful
when you start sending your
work out for production. She
states you do not have to have


can cause some major issues for
the elderly. At both facilities
residents get up and will go
where these animals are. They
look forward to petting and
talking to the dog, cat, bird, you
name it.
I was told by Brandi Lovelace
at Ayers Health & Rehabilita-
tion Center that nothing lights
up the faces of their residents
like dogs and children. Barbara
Chumney of Tri-County Nurs-
ing Home said that the effects of
holding an animal had such an
impact that the Good Shepherd
Lutheran Church in Chiefland
even donated stuffed animals.
The dogs help keep residents
active and alert and keep morale
high for the residents and em-
ployees alike. These animals
have impacted the lives of those
they touch in ways that may
never be measured. I'm very
proud to have Ayers Health &
Rehabilitation Center and Tri-
County Nursing Home in our
county.
Pets such as dogs and cats
provide unconditional, non-
judgmental love and affection.
Pets can shift our focus beyond
ourselves and help us feel con-
nected to the world again. We
owe these very special angels a
very big Thank You!


Three Fishermen
Charged With
Taking Over The
Limit Of Gag
Grouper
(Continued from Page One)
brought into port a large
quantity of gag grouper and
hogfish. The fishermen were
identified as they loaded the fish
into a vehicle and drove away.
The investigator contacted
Lt. Roy Williams and he was
able to communicate with the
..witness to get a detail
description of the vehicle and
the direction the fishermen were
traveling.
Lt. Williams along with
officers Jeff Swan and Jim
Miller traveled in the direction
to come in contact with the
vehicle used to transport the
fish. The officers made contact
with the individuals at a
Chevron station in Old Town a
short time after the men were
seen leaving the coastal
community. The officers talked
with the suspects in Old Town
and the three men admitted to
spearing over the limit and
having harvested 35 gag
grouper and 29 hogfish. The
fish were seized as evidence by
.the officers and the fishermen
were issued citations for taking
over the recreational limits of
the two species.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission donates evidence
that could be used for a need to
organizations that process and
prepare the meat for the public.
On this particular occasion, the
FWC contacted members of the
Educational Foundation of
Gilchrist County Inc. The fish
were donated to the
organization to be processed
and prepared at the annual
"Wild Beast Feast" on Friday,
April 8'` at Heavens Gate Farm.
FWC Officer Dan Tally which
is a member of the Educational
Foundation has been
instrumental in working with
the Gilchrist County
Educational Foundation which
provides over 50 scholarships to
graduating seniors from Trenton
and Bell High Schools each
year. Officer Tally and the FWC
has provided white tail deer and
other animals to the Educational
Foundation that have been.
processed by volunteer
members of the foundation for
the beast feast. The Educational
Foundation appreciates Officer
Tally and the members of the.
FWC staff that have helped the
Educational Foundation through
the years provide meat for the
annual feast.

an attorney to copyright your
own work. You can self copy-
right your songs by placing a
copy in an envelope and mailing
it to yourself. Make sure you
mail it from a post office out-
side of your immediate area,
and when you receive it keep it
sealed. The postmark serves as
a documented date, and if any-
one ever tries to say the work
was done by someone else you
have a way to prove the work is
yours. Janie also recommends
doing some research to make
sure a company is reputable.
She explains most are okay, but
you always have a couple of bad
apples to look out for.
Janie explains that while she
loves to write songs, she does
not consider herself a singer.
She started producing songs un-
der Jeff Robertson (now New
World Publishing) and has also
had songs produced under
Amerecord Company.. What
she likes best in working with
these companies is, she sends
them her lyrics and they add the
music and have someone sing a
demo. The production company
then sends Janie back a copy of
the demo for her approval. She
said she has been very pleased
with their work and has not had
to reject any musical arrange-
ments. All production compa-
nies she has worked with so far
have been based in Hollywood,
California. She has most re-
cently worked with Hilltop Re-
cords, and has two songs fea-
tured on a CD titled "America."
The CD features "The Darkest
Night," sung by Cody Lyons,
which is about moments when
life seems it's darkest, and
"Daddy I'm Grown Now," sung
by Kathy Rider, which is an an-
swer to the Jimmy Dean song in
which he is speaking to his
sleeping daughter.
Janie would love to be able to
say this is a lucrative hobby,
however, there are many' costs
involved in getting a song pro-
duced. Your contract will cost
YOU, and if you are marketing
yourself then the copies will
cost YOU, and you will be do-
ing the leg work in getting the
music sold. To really make
money as a songwriter you must
get your name known and mar-
ket yourself. If the production
company likes enough of your
work, they may contract with
you to write them a certain
number of songs for a set price.
Like anything el'e in life, if you
have the drive, passion and pa-
tience, you can succeed. Janie
explains patience is very im-
poitant when you deal with pro-
duction companies.
Janie continues to write songs
and will continue to send in her
favorites in hopes of getting
them featured '- future CDs.
You can find .;r featured on
three CDs; two by Hilltop Re-
cords, "America" and "Country
at Heart," and one under
Amerecord "Songs of Praise".
She thanks God for inspiring
her and wishes she could share
her songs with her parents and
grandmother who have already
passed away. She hopes every-
one who hears her songs will be
inspired as well. To find out
how to get a copy of her work
call Janie "Rosa" at (386) 935-
1268 after 5:00 p.m.
