By Stacey Brown

Theft Of Anhydrous


A Florida Wildlife
Conservation officer contacted
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office to advise that an
attempted theft at Southern
States in Trenton was occurring
at 7:00 a.m. on Sunday,
February 13" and
Gilchrist County deputies
were dispatched to the scene on
SR 47 just west of the Trenton
State Farmers Market. Officer
Dan Tally of FWC was assisted
by the deputies as the officer
apprehended two individuals
while they were attempting to
steal anhydrous. A third
individual was seen running
from the scene. The K-9 team
from Cross City Correctional
Institution was requested to
assist in the tracking of the


suspect. The search began near
the site of the attempted theft.
FWC and sheriff deputies
established a perimeter of
Northeast Trenton and Tyler
Grade while the K-9 team
searched. The search ended at a
residence on NE 14th Street
where two other suspects were
apprehended. All suspects were
incarcerated at the Gilchrist
County Jail.

before Judge Edward Philman
on Monday morning. The
following individuals were
arrested:

Chiefland City Council Denies

Businesses Extending Alcoholic

Sales To Sunday


A move to amend the hours
of alcoholic beverage sales in
the city of Chiefland came to an
abrupt halt at Monday's
Chiefland City Commission
meeting. The possibility of the
extending the sale of alcoholic
beverages had apparently spread
through the community that a
request for a public hearing to
amend or repeal the current
Chiefland ordinance to match
that of state law and county
regulations would be made at
the meeting.
Many Chiefland citizens
attended the meeting to let it be
known that they did not want to
see the hours of the sale of
alcoholic beverages be extended


to include Sunday.
Current Chiefland ordinance
reads: No alcoholic beverage or
intoxicating beverage may be
sold, consumed, or served or
permitted to be served or
consumed, in any place holding
state alcoholic beverage license
between 12:00 midnight
Saturday and 7:00 a.m.
Monday. There shall also be no
alcoholic beverage sales from
12:00 midnight until 7:00 a.m.
each night.
George Sandora who is a
planning and development
consultant in Levy County told
the city commission that he had
been retained by a group of
local business owners to


represent their interests in this
matter. Mr. Sandora requested a
public hearing to amend the
current city code to bring it in
line with the state and county in
regards to alcoholic sales. The
state and county allow alcoholic
beverage sales on Sundays from
7:00 a.m. until midnight.
Mr. Sandora pointed out that
there needs to be a level playing
field between the county, state
and city as far as the sale of
alcoholic beverages are
concerned. He went on to say
there are some 20 businesses in
the city that are asking by
petition to amend the current
code. Mr. Sandora presented the
commissioners with a petition


containing eight signatures and
said that more signatures would
be forthcoming. He also said
that with the annexation to the
north and west that the city has
planned, businesses who sell
alcoholic beverages on Sunday
now will loss approximately
14.2 percent of their business
once they are annexed into the
city. He said these businesses
would fight annexation because
of the current code. He also
reported that two businesses are
looking to move outside the city
limits because they can't sale
alcohol on Sunday.
Commissioner Betty Walker
said she thought the city needed
to clear up their drug problem
before they considered
extending the hours of alcohol
sales.
Mayor Sunshine Baynard said
she was not in favor of holding
a public hearing on the matter.

Bell JROTC Hosts

Brains And Braun Drill Meet


The Bell High School JROTC
hosted a "Brains and Braun
Drill Meet" this past Saturday,
February 5th, 2005. This was
their third annual drill meet and
they had their largest turnout of
schools. JROTC teams came
from Bell High, Dixie County
High, Columbia High, Inter-
lachen High and Crescent City
High schools to meet other
teams, compete and hone their
skills. The event began at 9:30
a.m. with a Marching Drill
Competition and an Academics
Competition held "Jeopardy"


style. The competitors then
prepared for the physical fitness
competition in which they com-
peted using the military physical
fitness requirements, points
scored up to 300 with the mini-
mum required to pass for mili-
tary purposes of 180 points.
They began with two minutes of
push-ups, then two minutes of
sit-ups and finally they were off
on a two-mile run. All com-
petitors performed well and
gave 110 percent. Even Sgt.
First Class Stone of the Army
Recruitment Office in Chiefland


participated and he was the first
in during the run, he still has
"it."
After all points were counted
up the Academics winners were:
first place Bell High, second
place Interlachen High and third
place Columbia High. The Drill
Team winners were: first place
Bell High, second place Inter-

prived of all social contact on
the forgotten side of the bar-
racks while his or her counter-
parts pass time by talking, or
better still, by surfing the
worldwide web. Given 12
hours and six strategic guard lo-
cations, it was decided that each
soldier should post guard at one
location for two hours and then
rotate to the next until each sol-
dier had posted guard at each
location. This simple change
has made a world of difference
as even the mundane alteration
of scenery serves as a catalyst
for the cruelest (and most le-
thargic) of processes-the ad-
vancement of time toward an
end.
The barracks have become
slightly quieter during the night,
although the nightshift still
complains of sporadic interrup-
tions throughout the day.
Staff duty has taken on a
more proactive role in enforcing
"quiet time" and it just may be
that noisy soldiers are realizing
a year is a long time to live with
one another, but will seem even
longer without any friends. And
while the problems of premature
and perpetual alarm clock
wailing might never completely
disappear, they have become
less of an epidemic, allowing
soldiers to awake, rather, to the
shrill chatter of our winged
neighbors.
That's right, the quarters are
shared with birds; but to be fair,
the birds were here first. There-
fore, TM Storm soldiers should
probably be grateful for their
selfless hospitality, rather than
angry about the deposits they
leave on the tops of furniture.
As for TM Storm deposits,
they are no longer limited to the
port-a-johns outside the bar-
racks, as recent renovations
have led to an exciting devel-
opment. Number two is now
authorized in the barracks la-
trines. This improvement may
be a small convenience now, but
will be a lifesaver when tem-
peratures top 130 degrees in the
summer. Providing indoor la-
Strines is yet another small step
toward bettering the war envi-
ronment that goes a long way in
maintaining morale.
Also good. for morale is the
opening of the education center.
As shocking as.it may seem,
even in an intelligence unit, TM
Stornm.r sIdid 'ea aie, rometirnes
deprived of.intellectpal thought.
It is important to stay sharp, and
not just in a military sense.
Now TM Storm soldiers, will
have that opportunity, and can
better themselves education-
ally-even while deployed.
With programs such as
EarmyU (the Army's online
university), the availability of
distance learning, and access to
computers without 30-minute
time limits, the learning barrier
has been breached and TM
Storm soldiers %\ ill be better for
it.
And finally, a new addition to
the barracks that resulted as per
soldier initiative will result in
yet another possible morale
boost. Soldiers privy to the
mysterious inter-workings of
computers and satellites have
coordinated with a local .pro-


vider to enable wireless Internet
access within the barracks. Of
course not everyone will di-
rectly benefit, as the service re-
quires a laptop, the appropriate
hardware and a buy-in fee. But
this alone should help limit us-
age on existing MWR comput-
ers, indirectly affecting their
availability to non-subscribers.
Suffice it to say, this promises
to be a good thing, and updates
on the developments of wireless
Internet in the barracks will be
provided in the future.
And now for the bad side: In
a deployed environment, espe-
cially one as volatile as Iraq,
such luxuries as electricity and
running water are simply
that-luxuries.- Recently, there
was an incident which resulted
in the.loss of water throughout
much of Baghdad. Conse-
quently, water conservation be-
came an issue and hours of op-
eration had to be imposed on
shower usage within the bar-
racks. Everyone suffered. It
wasn't the enforcement of the
water restrictions that grew tire-
some so much as the utter disre-
gard for-personal hygiene by a
minority of soldiers within the
barracks. When showering be-
came an inconvenience, some
chose to skip it, and the result
was an odor within the barracks
reminiscent of a two-bit carni-
val, or better yet, the armpit of
an overzealous carney.- The loss
of water couldn't have come at
a worse time as it coincided
*with the onset of the rainy sea-
son, which leaves the entire
camp slathered in mud. One
soldier asked, "How can some-
thing so slippery stick all over
you?" Indeed, the mud in Iraq
seems a peculiar paradox of
slippery tenacity, laughing in
the face of science. Whenever it
rains, the streets become filthy
deathtraps, luring you in with
their promises of passage to de-
sired locations. But as soon as
TM Storm soldiers.take the bait,
they are instantly at the mercy
of the mud, propelled at neck-
breaking speeds across the
ground like drunken ice skaters,
or simply stuck, ankle deep in
the menacing mire. And there is
no relief, because the mud lin-
gers as far as the eye can see.
At best, a soldier escapes the
walk to work with a slightly
heavier, slightly muqdjier. unii-
form,.than when. he oxvs]iei4ift.
At worst, the soldiecissp nkb.s
to the supernatural force, is di-
gested by the mass of mud and
regurgitated-the telltale sludge
a scarlet letter to be worn for the
remainder of the day (much to
the amusement of the soldier's
comrades).
Aside from the mud, Baghdad
is becoming more and more like
garrison, as TM Storm discov-
ered on 25 January. In the time
that encompassed the night-
shift's departure to work and the
dayshift's arrival from it, sol-
diers were told to stand by their
wall lockers. And so ensued the
most dreadful of military tradi-
tions, the infamous health and
welfare. For those who are not
.familiar with the term, it is, es-
sentially a thorough inspection
of each soldier',s living space
and personal belongings in or-
der to ensure that no contraband
has taken up nest there. Ques-
tionable items are confiscated,
and punishment is promised.
All the while, the soldiers wait
for their turn to be scrutinized
and hopefully cleared. It's not a
fun process' for anyone, and not
something often done in a de-
ployed environment, but this
place is called Braggdad for a
reason. The location may have
changed, but Ft. Bragg units are
still Ft. Bragg units and it would
take more than a war to stifle
the legend of the health and
welfare.
In closing, Team Storm sol-
diers have persevered through
the ups and downs and have al-
ready cleared a gigantic hurdle
in this deployment. As goes the'
ebb and flow of the ocean, so
goes the rise and fall of morale
in a deployment as well as in
life. There cannot be good
without the bad, but fortunately
the inverse is also true. And if
soldiers here or family and
friends back home need justifi-
cation for the perils that are en-
dured daily as -a result of this
separation, they need only look


at the faces of the Iraqis on
Election Day. They need only
look at the lines of men and
women alike who put their faith
and indeed their lives in the
hands of Americans so that they
could exercise one of the most
primitive rights of human-
ity-trusting that we would do
our jobs so that they too can
enjoy the freedoms we so often
take for granted. Take pride in
the fact that long after this de-
ployment has ended and the
headlines of today are but a
chapter in world history, the

every habitable portion of land possible. The
Bible reveals when man settled the Earth and
why.
Moses records in the book of Genesis the be-
ginning of our world. "In the beginning God
created the heavens and the earth" (Genesis
1:1). In six days the creation was completed and
man placed in the Garden of Eden. After sin sub-
dued man and God drove him from the garden,
evil men began to multiply until "all in whose
nostrils was the breath of the spirit of life, all
that was on the dry land, died" (Genesis 7:22).
Jehovah destroyed all living things which were on
the face of the ground because of the wickedness
of men's thoughts (Genesis 6-8). "Only Noah
and those who were with him in the ark re-
mained alive" (Genesis 7:23).
Following the Flood, eight people were alive
on the earth. From these eight people came all the
nations. At this time the whole earth had one lan-
guage and one speech. "And as men migrated
from the east, they found a plain in the land of
Shinar and settled there. And they said to one
another, 'Come, let us make bricks, and burn
them thoroughly.' And they had brick for stone,
and bitumen for mortar. Then they said, 'Come,
let us build ourselves a city, and a tower with its
top in the heavens, and let us make a name for
ourselves, lest we be scattered abroad upon the
face of the whole earth.' And the LORD came
down to see the city and the tower, which the
sons of men had built. And the LORD said, 'Be-
hold, they are one people, and they have all one


language; and this is only the beginning of what
they will do; and nothing that they propose to do
will now be impossible for them. Come, let us go
down, and there confuse their language, that they
may not understand one another's speech.' So the
LORD scattered them abroad from there over the
face of all the earth and they left off building the
city. Therefore its name was called Babel, because
there the LORD confused the language of all the
earth; and from there the LORD scattered them
abroad over the face of all the earth" (Genesis
11:2-9).
The Bible answers two questions for mankind:
why do men speak in different languages and
where did all the nations come from. The confusion
of language is an act of God. It is not known what
language Noah and his family spoke but at the time
of the tower of Babel, all men spoke the same lan-
guage. (See what can be done when all men speak
the same language?) Jehovah confused the lan-
guage of mankind and created a natural division of
people to their own language. It was then the world
began to be populated as every distinct language
migrated to different parts of the globe. This disper-
sion would take generations to accomplish but his-
tory has shown that men have inhabited the conti-
nents, islands, mountains, valleys and the farthest
reaches of the earth.
Columbus really did not "discover" anything as
this land has been inhabited by men for generations
upon generations. Before Columbus came the Az-
tec and Incas had already had their empires. The In-
dian nations were here for thousands of years. All
of this points to when God confused the languages
and scattered man over the face of all the earth. The
Bible shows again why it is the divine word of
God. If God can reveal these matters of our days
past, consider the power of His word to tell us our
future. "All Scripture is given by inspiration of
God" (2 Timothy 3:16)

Colson Farms, Trenton',

these registered Angus are used
by the U.S. farmers and ranch-
ers who raise high quality beef
for U.S. consumption.

POST 91 NEWS
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252,
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
The Post 91 Executive Committee had asked the members of Post 91
about changing the regular monthly meeting to a Saturday morning, or
leave it on Thursday night as it has been for some time. The reason for
changing the day was to make it more convenient for the members to
come to the meetings. A questionnaire was sent out to the membership
and those that responded wanted the Saturday morning meeting. It will be
a daylight meeting, so that many more Legionnaires will have the
opportunity to attend and be a part of OUR American Legion Post. The
Saturday meetings will begin in April and will be the second Saturday of
the month, and in this case, it will be April 9th, at 10:00 AM. Another
question on the sheet was for a breakfast or a lunch meal to go with the
meeting, as a time and place to sit, eat and visit with fellow Legionnaires
and families. A breakfast meal would begin at 08:00 AM and go until
09:30 or so with the meeting beginning at 10:00 AM. The other way
would be the meeting would start at 10 and lunch would be from 11:30 or
so, until everyone leaves. This will be on the agenda for the meeting
tonight at Post 91, so come to the meeting and voice your opinion on
which meeting would be right for you.
Cub Scout Pack 406 will have their 'Pinewood Derby' at Post 91 on
Monday, February 28th, beginning at 6:00 PM. Boy. Scout Troop 406 will
have a car wash at the Canton House Restaurant parking lot on Saturday,
February 19th from 09:00 to 3:00 PM. Bring your dirty cars and Troop
406 Scouts will wash them for a donation to the Troop.
Membership Chair (also Adjutant) Dean Williams reports that Post 91
has 128 paid members and eleven more will get our 100 percent in
membership, so keep on recruiting for new members.
The Fourth District,Commander, Phil Hearlson, has called a District
meeting on March 5th' at Post 77 in Inverness. Registration will begin at
9:00 and the meeting will begin at 10:00. Several Legionnaires have
plans to go to this meeting, and if anyone wants to join us, call one of our
officers and let them know.
The first Saturday meeting, on April 9th, will include a brief program
on the National POW Day, which is that day. As the date comes closer,
there will be more information.
Saturday, March 12th, Post 91 will have a Yard Sale/Family Fun Day.
The yard sale will go from 08:00 until 13:00 (1:00 PM). Tables will be
available for a donation if anyone wishes to set up to sell their own items.
Donated items for Post 91 can be dropped off at the Post on the 10th
(Thursday) and Friday the llth, from noon until 7:00PM. Please
pre-price the items before you drop them off. You will know more of
what these items are worth or what they cost, so give us a good price ball
park. On the Family Fun side, a face painter will be there to paint designs
on faces and there is a plan to have a 'Moon Walk' too. The Post will have
a 'deal meal'. A hamburger, pack of chips and a soda for a donation of
$3.00 or more. Just sodas are a fifty cent donation. If it is cool, coffee will
be available. Come out and work with us, 'buy' from us, just show us
some attention!
The scholarship letters have been mailed. Be as generous as you can
for this. As you know, Post 91 gives two $500.00 scholarships each year
to area seniors. These seniors must write an essay and the Post must
receive it by May 13th. The information has also been sent to the area
schools, so if you know a high school senior that plans on going to
college, encourage them to look into this offer.
Remember our Armed Forces each day in your thoughts and prayers.
Here at home, watch over your fellow Legionnaires, veterans, widows
and the families of those service members that have been called to active
duty, helping out wherever you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

News

County Extension Agent
When we think of February
we assume most of the cold
weather is behind us. It is time
to prune fruit trees, grapevines
and other hardwood species.
Most peaches are blooming
now so prune back and open up
the center of tree for space, sun-
light and air movement. Dis-
eased limbs need to be cut out
to prevent spreading of the dis-
ease. Sometimes peaches and
nectarines will set too much

fruit. If they are left to ripen
you will end up with lots of
small fruit and not much edible
fruit. If overloaded they need to
be thinned when they are about
the size of a dime and fruit be-
ing four to six inches apart.
When this is done at this size
you will have larger fruit. You
sometimes will have to prune 50
percent of the fruit to accom-
plish this.
Also February is the time to
fertilize most fruit trees. As a
general rule, use a complete
fertilizer, 6-8-8,8-8-8, etc. and
spread around the drip line (end
of branches). People with citrus
trees do not fertilize until
March.
During the growing season
you may need to control insects
or diseases. For a complete list
of trees and insect control you
may contact our office for
Dooryard Fruit For North

supply you with this fact sheet.

Welcome New
Postmasters To Bell
And Old Town
By Anna Wild
On January 31, 2005 the Bell
and Old Town post offices offi-
cially welcomed their new
postmasters. In Bell Fran Bai-
ley took over for Jean Sails.
Jean had been your postmaster
for the past 17 years In Bell, and
her postal career extended
through the past 27 years. She
started with the postal service
with Carl Jones where she
worked two hours every other
week. From there she moved
into a full-time position and be-
came a postmaster after just six
years with the postal service.
Jean will be missed; her co-
workers gave her a proper fare-
well dinner complete with a
plaque thanking her for her
dedication over the years.
Please take a moment to wel-
come Fran Bailey the next time
you stop by the Bell Post Of-
fice. Fran has worked with the
postal service for the past 30
years. She was lucky to start
her career when she was just 18
years old. She has been with
the Orange Park Post Office the
past 27 years and has developed
a diverse knowledge of the
Postal Service over her career.
Both Jean and Fran agree that
when working in a small rural
post office you must be able and
willing to step into any job.
Small post offices must have
employees that are trained for
more than one task. The larger
post offices have individuals
specialized for specific tasks.
Both told me that you won't
find a better group of people to
work with anywhere other than
Bell. Fran has been very
pleased with her decision to
work in Bell. She currently
drives 80 miles each way from
home to work. She has had co-
workers offer her to stay with
them so she does not have to
travel so much. Fran knows
that people like those employed
in Bell are not found every-
where and she appreciates eve-
ryone's help and consideration.
In Old Town Steve Beach
took over for Jake Trish. Mr.
Trish worked in Old Town for
the past two and a half years.
He was with the postal service a
total of 29 years. He took ad-
vantage, of 'the, postal .services'
-early retirement-optioihand that
opened a door for Steven Beach
of Trenton to step through. Mr.
Beach was the postmaster for
the past five years in the town of
Suwannee. He also worked at
the Gainesville Main Street Sta-
tion site for six years as a Su-
pervisor of Customer Services.
He has worked for the U.S.
Postal Service since 1988 and
has grown with the post office
over the years. His father, Doug
Beach, retired as the postmaster
in Trenton and Steven has pre-
viously worked with Trenton's
current Postmaster, Don Duval,'


when he was in Gainesville.
Mr. Beach, a Trenton High
graduate, had originally planned
on becoming a physical educa-
tion teacher and was attending
Lake City Community College
when he was called by the U.S.
Postal Service about an open-
ing. He had been on their
waiting list two years and made
the decision to take the position
with the post office and con-
tinue with college. After learn-
ing how difficult it is to keep up
with a job and full time studies
he changed his career choices.
Please give Steven Beach a
warm welcome next time you
are in the Old Town Post Of-
fice. Feel free to shake his hand
and swap fishing stories. A Big
Welcome to our new postmas-
ters, we hope you enjoy your
stay!

President Bush last October.
More than $3 billion in relief

poses; eligible forest land own-
ers who produce crops of time

Florida's
Constitution Should
Agree That Children
Need A Mother And
Father
For centuries in our world
marriage has been commonly
understood as a relationship
between a man and a woman.
Specifically in the .United
States, marriage has historically
been a monogamous relation-
ship between a man and a
woman. "Marriage in this state
is a common good, not a special
interest," says Christian Coali-
ton of Florida's Executive Di-
rector, Bill Stephens.."This is
why we are supporting an
Amendment to the Florida Con-
stitution to preserve marriage
between a man and a woman."
Every society needs natural


marriage (as many men as pos-
sible each finding a woman,
caring for and committing him-
self exclusively to her) working
together to create and raise the
next generation. "No society
needs homosexual coupling. In
fact, too much of it would be
harmful to society and that is
why natural marriage and same-
sex coupling cannot be consid-
ered socially equal," says Ste-
phens.
"Furthermore, same-sex cou-
pling celebrates gender same-
ness and denies children the
gender diversity of their mother
and father," Stephens adds. "A
loving and compassionate soci-
ety never intentionally creates
motherless and fatherless fami-
lies, which is exactly what every
same-sex home does."

On February 8th, 40 members
and guests of Springhouse
'Quilters met at their quilt house
west of Trenton for their
monthly business meeting, show
and tell, and fellowship time.
The guild was saddened to
learn of the loss of a special
member, Evelyn Wheeles.
Evelyn was a previous treasurer,
vice president and remained an
active member of Springhouse
until she became too ill to at-
tend. Our heartfelt sympathy is
,extended to Mr. Bob, husband,
,Mary Robinson, sister and a
member of Springhouse, and
other family members in the
loss of their loved one.
Jane Boyd, for Sunshine and
-Shadows, reported on members
who have been sick and have
special needs. Some were Idell
Matthews, Helen Templeman,
and Onnie Mae Fowler.
Gloria Sutton presented the
guild members with the monthly
block-of-the-month pattern and


demonstrated the construction
of the block. A sample block of
the pattern, variation of the
Dresden plate on point, was dis-
played.
Alice Gilbert explained the
annual community project
which will be wheelchair bags
and bed holsters for nursing
home patients. Each member
was requested to make at least
one of the two projects and
more if possible. The com-
pleted projects are to turned in
to Alice by the November
monthly meeting.
Jan Litzinger made S'mores
before the membership arrived
for all to share. Members that
made a fabric valentine for ex-
change swapped their valen-
tines. This part of the program
was fun and each participating
member went home with a spe-
cial valentine, not the typical
ones usually received.
The fellowship was great with
many Valentine goodies for.all
to share.
Raffle tickets are available
from Springhouse quilters for

Son Of Area Resident
Supports Tsunami
Humanitarian Relief
Efforts On Board
Navy Carrier :, ,,
.B JO3 MaT.a .I D., ..n
In an attempt to help provide
support to South Asia, military
forces have joined in support of
Operation Unified Assistance to
help rebuild what was destroyed
during the region's recent earth-
quake and tsunami disasters.
Among these forces are USS
Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72)
Carrier Strike Group and Car-
rier Air Wing 2 based out of
Bremerton, Washington.
One of Lincoln's 6,500
crewmembers with the opportu-
nity to provide humanitarian as-
sistance to tsunami survivors is
Petty Officer 3rd Class Michael
Arroyave, son of Rhonda Ar-
royave of Bell.
"I feel very fortunate to be
given the opportunity to help
out the victims of this disaster.
Anything we can do is helpful
in a situation like this."
Arroyave's ship was the first
to provide logistic support to the
disaster-stricken area. Six SH-
60F Seahawk helicopters from
Lincoln started the humanitarian
mission by ferrying food and
medical supplies, and* injured
people and others affected by
the disaster to and from collec-
tion points in the Indonesian
town of Banda Aceh.
"The U.S. military has the
most efficient and versatile lo-
gistics capabilities in the
world," said Arroyave. "We
can use these capabilities tp help
out people in dire need."
Government officials view
Lincoln as the best force to have
in the region at the right time, a
consideration Arroyave agrees
with.
"Our logistics are the key to
any disaster relief effort. The
Lincoln's ability to transport
volunteers, food, water and sup-
plies to unreachable areas is
* crucial in this operation."
In addition to these helicop-
ters, Lincoln's air wing also
consists of C-2 Greyhound car-
rier onboard delivery planes to
carry cargo, E-2C Hawkeye air-
craft to provide search and res-
cue, as well as F/A-18 Hornet
and Super Hornet fighter attack
aircraft. These assets, as well as


the added value of other ships in
the area, are sure to bring a
measure of appreciated stability
that would not have been had
otherwise, Arroyave said.
"I believe the tsunami survi-
vors will respond with great re-
spect and appreciation for the
U.S. military."
Arroyave is proud to be
among the first to respond, and


s confident that Lincoln was the
best answer.
"The recovery time for a dis-
aster of this scale will be several
'ears. I believe that the Lincoln
s paving the way. All we can
lo at this point is try to keep the
survivors as healthy and in the
highest spirits as possible and
ve're doing that."

Lending A Helping
Hand
By Lisa Anguish
On Saturday, February 5'
some of the residents of Gil-
christ County joined together
for a cause, The Gilchrist
County Walk-A-Thon.
We here at Ayers Health &
Rehabilitation Center also like
lending a helping hand. When
some of our residents heard
about the walk-a-thon they also
wanted to join together to help
do what they could. So with the
help of some Ayers' partners,
our residents, Mr. Stan Beach of
Trenton and Mrs. Sarah Keli-
venton also of Trenton, went
outside with some refreshments
and encouragement to help the
walkers continue their journey
on such a breezy day.


o- better eating habits, regular
d. physical activity and weight
o- control. Maintaining a healthy
n- weight is the cornerstone to
B. healthy living and a key cancer
ed prevention strategy.
s- One of the best ways to de-
ne termine if your weight is within
by a healthy range or if extra
is pounds may be putting you at
il- risk for developing chronic dis-
00 eases like cancer, heart disease
or diabetes, is to know your
[S body mass index (BMI) a
he calculation that uses both height
e- and weight to determine if
you're at a healthy weight. Ex-
cess body fat can trigger health
problems, and many health pro-
fessionals are using BMI to help
determine if your weight is
healthy or risky. In general, the
higher your weight, the higher
your BMI and the greater your
risk of.developing serious health
issues.

Bell Middle/High
School Host Dinner
Theater
By Anna Wild
On Thursday, February 10,
2005 the Bell Middle and High
Schools hosted a Dinner Theater
in the Bell Elementary School
Cafeteria. The dinner was held
'as a fund-raising effort for the
band and drama programs at


Bell High School. The event
was a huge success with ap-
proximately 241 in attendance.
The cafeteria was beautifully
decorated in an Italian style
right down to the waiter's mus-
taches.
You were welcomed as you
entered and presented with a
flower (if you were a lady).
Then you were seated by a stu-
dent who took your drink order


with a smile. Your maitred',
Debbie Norton-Aronowicz,
checked on each guest to ensure
everyone was having a great
time. The evening started with
music played by the many tal-
ented students in the Purple
Powerhouse Band. Many
played solos and everyone en-
joyed the many musical talents.
The guests were even enter-
tained by the Band Director,
Todd Eckstein, as he played his
saxophone. Then the guests
heard poetry recited by Jennifer
Zerbe and the Band-Aid cov-
ered Amanda Diehl (the band-
aids went with her readings).
Dinner was deliciously pre-
pared by Lisa Boutwell and a
host of volunteers. The guests
dined on spaghetti and, mea&if:'
.ball sl; lasagna, salatd-i garliczu.-
bread, drink and various des-
serts. The lovely music, poetry
and delightful meal made for a
perfect evening. After dinner
the Drama Students made eve-
ryone laugh with their "The
Quib Blaster from Zantar (A
Space Farce)." The story is of a
planet with very few residents
who become over run by a pest
called a "Quib" which eats trash
and things left behind by others.
To get rid of the pests they hire
a "Quib Blaster" and he blasts
the pests far, far away (to earth).
But when the residents do not
keep their word and pay him for
his services he blasts their chil-
dren to his world until they pay
him. The play was very enter-
taining and everyone did a great
job!
This was the first time the
school had done a fund-raiser of


- Until...


this type and they were pleased
by the turnout of guests and
volunteers. Without the help of
the band boosters and other par-
ent volunteers this event could
never have succeeded. Thanks
to everyone who participated
the drama instructor can buy
much needed supplies and the
band can purchase instruments,
music, etc. I look forward to
this becoming an annual event
and hope you will support these
programs again in the future.

GREETINGS
If my cherished cat, Molly,
could talk, I'm sure she could
tell you all about the ifun we
share with one another. This
photo today shows her hiding
underneath a colorful yellow
blanket. I wish you could see it
in color. She loves to tease.
She'll come into the room I'm
in and start looking up at me
and meowing. Then when I
turn completely around she'll
run like a streak into another
room, usually landing on the

fun a cat can be.

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Don Em-
rick of Newberry and Lillian
Herndon (71) of Sun N'Fun on
February 21st... "Have. a very


nice day celebrating!"

Don't let weeds grow around
your dreams...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Why do we call a very close
resemblance "The very spittin'
image?"
The expression is a corruption
of the earlier phrase, "the very
spit and image." It referred to
two people so similar that even
their "spit" was alike. The
change to "spittin" came about
from the general proclivity
among boys, at least of an ear-
lier generation, to try to "spit"
like their fathers.

It takes courage when you're
in the minority but tolerance
when you're in the majority...

RIB TICKLERS
While redecorating my bath-
room, I phoned a shop to see if
it stocked a particular model of
toilet.
"We haven't got one here,"
said the clerk.
"Oh, no!" I said, crestfallen.
His number had been the fourth
one I'd called.
"Don't worry," he added
helpfully. "I'll contact our other
outlets to see if there's anybody
out there sitting on one."

Twenty years after high
school, a woman moved back to
her hometown.
Needing dental work done,
she grabbed the phone book and
quickly found a dentist. There
had been a tall, handsome boy
in her class by the same name,
she remembered as she made
her appointment.
That morning, she spent extra
time on her hair and put on a
new dress, hoping to impress
her classmate. When she saw


him, however, she dismissed the
thought. This balding man with
the paunch was too old to have
graduated with her.
Nevertheless, she still won-
dered if he was the same person.
on her way out, she asked, "Did
you graduate from the local high
school?"
"Yes," he replied. "Class of
'84."
"You were in my class!" she
said.
"Really? What did you
teach?"

Dining out one evening, I no-
ticed teenagers celebrating at a
nearby table. When one girl
took out a camera, I offered to
take a group picture. After one
photo, I suggested taking an-
other in case the first didn't
come out. .
"That's okay," she said, as
she took back her camera. "I
always get double prints."

My father said there were two
kinds of people in the world:
givers.and takers. The takers
may eat better, but the givers
sleep better.

preted, but never mis-

THE COOK'S CORNER
Easy Chocolate Truffles
8 ounces of cream cheese,
softened
3 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 pkg. (12 squares) semi-
sweet baking chocolate, melted
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
Suggested coatings: Ground
walnuts, unsweetened cocoa,
powdered sugar, or flake coco-
nut
Beat cream cheese in large
bowl with electric mixer on me-


dium speed until smooth.

until well blended. Add melted
chocolate and vanilla; mix well.
Refrigerate one hour or until
chilled. Shape into 1-inch balls.
Roll in walnuts, cocoa, pow-
dered sugar or coconut. Store in

If winning isn't everything,
why do they keep score?...


HOUSEHOLD HINT
Corn pads are terrific coasters
for plant pots. Simply stick
them on and you will be able to
use that pot that has been
scratching your table for
years...

If you think nobody cares
about you, don't file a federal
tax return this year...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
People
There's a magic found in peo-
ple;
When you need them, they are
there.
It could be they are angels,
An answer to a prayer.
A person needs another,
You'll find in life today.
You'll be a lonesome soul
If you keep them all away.
I have met complete strangers
Who took my blues for theirs;
They said the things I needed to
hear,
An answer to my prayers.
God uses prayers in different
ways;
He will always be around.
I have found much love in
people -
That's where God is found.

I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
Character cannot be devel-
oped in peace and quiet. Only
through experiences of trial
and suffering can the soul be
straightened, vision be
cleared, ambition insured and
success achieved...

Suwannee Valley
Players To Present
Crucible. March 4-6
And 11-13
The Suwannee Valley Players
announces its upcoming pro-
duction of The Crucible, an
Arthur Miller drama.
The story, written in 1952,
Arthur Miller's classic play
about the witch hunts and trials
in 17th century Salem, is a
searing portrait of a community
engulfed by hysteria. In the
rigid theocracy of Salem, ru-
mors that women are practicing
witchcraft galvanize the town's
most basic fears and suspicions.
The ruthlessness of the prose-
cutors and the eagerness of
neighbor to testify against
neighbor brilliantly illuminate
the destructive power, of so-
cially-sanctioned violence.
Performances will be held
March 4th through 6th and the
11th through the 13th. Perform-
ances begin at 8:00 p.m. on Fri-
day and Saturday nights, with
Sunday matinees at 2:30 p.m.
Tickets are $6.00 for adults and
$4.00 for students and children
over five years of age. Parental
discretion is advised for young
children. Call for group rates of
over ten people. All produc-
tions are held at the Chief
Theatre, 25 E. Park Avenue,
Chiefland.
Tickets can be purchased


from ticket outlet: Suwannee
Valley Internet and Computers
(114 S. Hwy 19), or cast mem-
bers, or at the box office in the
theatre 45 minutes before cur-
tain. For more information visit

Life South Thanks
Gilchrist County For
Participation
By Anna Wild
; LifeSouth Community Blood
Centers love coming to Gilchrist
,County. They know it seems
like they are "always" asking
you to donate blood, but that's


because the need for blood does
not stop. In 2004 residents of
Gilchrist County donated a total
of 698 units of blood that
touched the lives of an esti-
mated 2,094 individuals. They
ask anyone who can donate to
please do so. Believe it or not,
if everyone who is able to do-
nate did, then everyone would


only need to donate one time
every seven years. That's
amazing to me.
Now before you say, well I
can't donate because, just stop
by and make sure that things
have not changed for you. Jen-
nifer' Glymph, Donor Recruit'
ment Manager for LifeSouth,
explained that many individuals
who were told five plus years
ago that they cannot donate
blood may be able to do so now.
Each mobile unit has contact
with a doctor who will deter-
mine if you can donate. Many
individuals who are diabetic,
have high blood pressure, pre-
vious cancer patients and many
more may be able to donate.
Much advancement has been
made over the past few years
and they are always opening
new doors for people who want
to help.
LifeSouth especially likes to
visit the Bell community and
Bell High School. The mobile
unit was at Bell High and Ele-
mentary schools this past
Wednesday, February 9th and
received 41 units of blood from
that drive alone. In the past the
Bell Community has averaged
42 units per drive which is more
than double the intake of any
other site in Gilchrist County.
Way to go Bell! The second

Each unit of blood will help
three people; the blood is bro-
ken down into red cells, plate-
Slets and plasma. Whole blood is
rarely used these days, the red
cells are used to help treat types
of anemiaa and this is what is
used after surgery or accidents.
The platelets, are, used 'in bone
marrow, failure, after transplant
and chemotherapy treatments
and in' leukemia patients.
Plasma is most often used after
loss of blood in childbirth and it
also replaces the clotting factors
after massive transfusions or in
liver disease. The millions of
individuals whose lives are
saved by blood donors thank
you and hope everyone_ -ho can
,donate blood will do so. Next
time,you see that big RV (mo-
bile unit), step in and answer a
few questions to find out if you
can donate blood TODAY.

Big Band Sound,
Classics Of Jazz
Promised By Artie
Shaw Orchestra
The big band era and the clas-
sics of jazz \i ill be ushered'into
the' Alfonso Levy Performing
SArts Center Tuesday, February
:22nd, with a performance by the
Artie Shaw Orchestra. The or-
chestra is conducted by Boston-
area native Dick Johnson.
Arthur Arsha\%sk\. born in
lMay 1910 in Newl York City,
became Artie Shaw and one of
the great American clarinetists
and a popular band leader of the
Q1930s and 40s He isr-cnnsid-
ered one of the fe%% outstanding
jazz musicians whose commit-
ment tojazz ias'uricertain.
Shaw began playing in high
school and turned professional
/ in 1925. The first signs of inde-
cision came in the early 1930s,
when he retired from music for
a year. Later, in 1935 at a New
York swing concert, Shaw
played one of his own composi-
tions accompanied by a string
quartet.

THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 17, 2005


A jazz and dance band with a
string section followed, but in
1937 he reformed his band
along more conventional lines.
He rose to fame in the swing era
with such memorable hits as
Stardust, and the Cole Porter
tune Begin the Beguine.
From 1930 Shaw lived alter-
nately in Mexico and the United
States, experimenting with
small jazz combos that he called
the Gramercy Five.
While several public come-
backs followed, including lead-
ership of a U.S. Navy orchestra,
he dissociated himself from jazz
almost totally after the early
1950s.
In a 1984 interview with
Newsweek, Shaw recalled the
reasons why he put down his
clarinet, "My standards got so
bloody high it was torture.
People always ask me why I
don't play for my own amuse-
ment. I say, 'What's amusing
about it?'" Shaw 94, died last
year on December 30th of com-.
plications from diabetes at his
home in Thousand Oaks, Cali-
fornia. Shaw, a rival of Benny
Goodman, tied the knot eight
times. Two of his marriages
were to stars Lana Turner and
Ava Gardner.
Reedman Dick Johnson says
he decided to become a musi-
cian in the early 1940s when he
saw Shaw play in the movie,
Second Chorus. Ironically, he
didn't take music seriously until
he was aboard a U.S. Navy ship
with musicians who needed a
saxophonist.
In 1980, Johnson recorded
Carioca on clarinet. The record
was sent to Artie Shaw, who
applauded Johnson's talent.
Shaw wrote the following n6te
to Johnson's manager: "You
wanted to hear what I think of
Dick Johnson's clarinet playing..
/ OK. As of this time, he's the
best I've ever heard. Bar no-
body. And you can quote me on
that, anywhere, anytime."
When Shaw decided to form a
new band in the early 1980s -
his first in some 30 years it
* was Johnson he called on.
Of his new band, which plays
Shaw arrangements of Stardust,
Begin the Beguine, Rose Room,
Nightmare and other hits, Shaw
has' said, "You know I didn't re-
alize until I put the band back
together again how durable this
stuff is."
The Ari 4'Shaw Onrchei'ioa,
the third performance in Lake
SCity Community College's Ly-
ceum Series, will perform at-
7:30 p.m., Tuesday, February
22nd, at the Alfonso Levy Per-
forming Arts Center. Tickets
are $14 general admission, $13

LOG CABIN QUILj:.I


Log Cabin Quilters
Special Note: The photo
caption of the "Oldest Quilt"
of the Log Cabin Quilters Mu-
seum should have read that it
was made in 1857 not 1958.
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, February 10th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
B.J. has quilted another quilt,
she does stay busy. This one is
made from the "Ohio Rose"
pattern but when she re-
designed it, it sure doesn't look
the same.
We are all ready to go to the
fair Tuesday to see if we have
won any ribbons. The bus is
full and we look forward to a
great day. The weather should
be great after our little cold

nity 4:00 until 6:00 p.m.
The awards ceremony will be
held on Thursday, February 24t,
7:00 p.m: in Union County at
the high school. The winners
will be able to participate in the
State Science and Engineering
Fair in Orlando, Florida on
April 6th through 8th.

We enjoyed having six
guests from Breezy Acres'
campground. Some have been
coming in and we invited them
to come share our pot luck
dinner. I meet so many won-
derful friends and great memo-
ries are made every day.
Several traveled to Bronson
after club to see the beautiful
monument of the ten com-
mandments. We told them if
they had no place for it, we
thought it would look great
here at the museum. If every-
one obeyed these laws, there
would be no need for law offi-
cers, judges, courts and all the
things it takes to keep us safe.
It would be a great world to
live in.
Lunch was enjoyed with an
abundance of so much food.
We had 24 members and six
guests present.

This "Dresden Plate" quilt top was donated to us by Mr.
Weber after his wife passed away. It was pieced back in
the 30s as these were often made of sack fabric that was
used in many quilts in those early years.

Troops, Families To
Benefit From New
Center For Injured
By Samantha L. Quigley
A new organization is helping
to make sure service members
with severe injuries have all
available resources.
"One way we can express our
gratitude (for injured service
members)' is by working to
make sure that the Department
of Defense, the U.S. govern-
ment and the American people
as a whole do everything we can
to enable these heroes to recover
from their injuries and rebuild
their lives," Deputy Defense
Secretary Paul Wolfowitz said
recently.
Wolfowitz addressed his
comments to the crowd gathered
for the February 1st ribbon cut-


ting to officially open the Mili-
tary Severely Injured Joint Op-
erations Center in Arlington,
Virginia.
The new center will tie to-
gether military and other gov-
ernment programs, such as the
Army Disabled Soldier Support
System and similar programs in
the other services, and those run
by the departments of Labor and
Veterans Affairs.
"The purpose of the center is
to bring things together to make
sure no one falls through the
cracks, make sure everyone has
a single telephone number that
they may call ... if they have a
question, a problem, an issue
that has not been properly re-
solved," said David S.C. Chu,
undersecretary of defense for
personnel and readiness.
"Our job may not be to re-
solve the issue, it may be to turn


to the appropriate service pro-
vider and say, 'We have private
so-and-so here (and) we need to
do X, Y and Z for him or her,'"
Chu said.
Other times, the center staff
members may need to take ac-
tion themselves, he said. As an
example, Chu used the case of a
young officer who wants to re-
'turn to graduate school but can't
leave the hospital to take the
Graduate Record Exam. This is
the type of case that doesn't fall
into any particular military
service's niche. Therefore the
center will try to arrange for the
officer to take the test another
way.
The center's mission is not to
replace government or military
programs, Chu said. "It is to
unify. It is to coordinate. It is
to give every family member ...
a place of recourse if they need


it."
The services of the center,
which will be under the direc-
tion of Chu's office, are a toll-
free phone call away. Help is
available to service members or
their families at (888) 774-1361
24 hours a day, seven days a
week. When calling the center,
a service member or family
member will be assigned a care
manager to serve as a permanent
pint of contact.
"A family will be assigned a
care manager for the entire time
they're in the system," said
Navy Cmdr. Dave Julian, di-
rector of operations for the
military side of the center.
"We're looking for extended
support for five years and be-
yond."
He also said the center can
meet most of a family's needs.
"We have a wealth of resources,


More than farm equipment.

Your potential for growth depends on more than the
success of your crops. It also depends on the level of
support you get from the people you do business with.

Jeff Butler, Ring Power's agriculture equipment sales
specialist in Dixie, Marion, Levy and Gilchrist counties, .
is a trained professional who knows the business and
can help you find the equipment you need to improve
your productivity.

.Next time you're in the market for a tractor or farm
implerrents, give Jeff a call. He'd be happy to show
you what Ring Power has in store!

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

INFORMATION

This 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,
signs, 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 form 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 hot 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
I 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.


-. 0~i, ~ 'ii


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 tiMe 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.

(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. INo 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 1 After April I,
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.


to take advantage of," Julian
said. 'There's no shortage of
people that want to help service
members and their families."
Wolfowitz said he realized
the need for the center just a
short time ago. The number of
phone calls his office was re-
ceiving requesting help with dif-
ferent issues was the red flag.
"This is very much the vision of'
(Wolfowitz), who has taken a
deep personal interest in the
wounded and their families,"
Chu said.
Patti Walker, wife of Army
Sgt. 1st Class Kevin Walker,
sees the center as a buoy for
spouses who have many respon-
sibilities and decisions to make
when they learn their loved one
in the military has been injured.
Had the center existed when her
husband, currently with the 24th
Infantry Division at Fort Riley,
Kansas, was injured in Iraq, her
experience would have been
much easier.
"When Kevin was injured, I
was incredibly alone," Walker
said. "This center would have
helped me more than I can ever
tell you. I didn't know where to
turn when Kevin was injured.
It's going to be a very good ve-
hicle for military spouses."

the event. Breakfast was pro-
vided by the Gilchrist County

Are You Scared?
By Steven King,
Professor of Irrigation
Management
at Lake City Community
College
It was 1985, and I was 23
years old. I was trenching in a
garden that summer afternoon in
a hot and humid South Florida
coastal area, when to my
shocking surprise, the expanded
spool of drip tubing lying on the
ground beneath me began to
take on a life of its own. The
(spaghetti) tubing started to in-
tertwine around my right ankle.
In an instance, I felt myself be-
ing sucked down into the
"valve" pits of hell. I started to
scream, but to no avail... No
one heard my own private
nightmare. When I finally
snapped out of it and realized
that this wasn't a Stephen King
novel, but the reality of drip ir-
rigation and its effect on most
irrigation contractors.
If you were a contractor 15 to
20 years ago, more than likely,
this is how you would have felt
about drip irrigation. Tim Wil-
son, certified irrigation designer,
in AG Drip/Micro, for Residen-
tial and Commercial applica-
tions, of H20 Stewardship lo-
cated in Cheney, Washington
and author of Drip Design in the
Landscape and Site Water Man-
agement Planning, to name a
few, stated "that's not the case
now. Today, a large percentage
of contractors employ the idea

of drip irrigation and incorpo-
rate drip irrigation into their
systems. Some contractors in-
stall drip because they have to,
but there is still a small.group of
contractors that are holding out
from the 80s who do not want
anything to do with it" Wilson
continued.
"In my day contractors threw
water all over the place. They
didn't care how much water
they had wasted," explained
Duane McDaniel of Flagler
Beach, Florida, a 1977 graduate
of Lake City Community Col-
lege. "If my son is going to
take over the family business
(Outscape Landscaping) he
needs to know a lot more about
water conservation and plant re-
quirements. That's why I have
enrolled, 19-year-old Craig, in
the Irrigation Management Pro-
gram at Lake City Community
College. LCCC is a primary
target to keep updated with in-
dustry trends and new prod-
ucts," his father said.
Robin Barber of "All Pro-
Maintenance" located in Talla-
hassee is a little hesitant about
low volume irrigation, but be-
lieves that drip is here to stay.
"There is a place and time when
and where to use it. It is not
like a one-shoe-fits-all kind of
concept," said Barber. If you
are just starting your irrigation
company, you probably know
about drip and or micro-spray
systems already. Pressure
regulators, air vents, and flush
caps are already in your vo-
cabulary. "This is the way of
the future, in irrigating plants
and trees," says Spencer Phil-
lips, an LCCC irrigation man-
agement student. "Drip irriga-
tion is a great way to conserve
water and you can manage the
plants watering needs more effi-
ciently," Phillips explained.
In the near future, all con-
tractors in Florida will be sub-
jected to newer and tougher
water restrictions. In Volusia
County, contractors are now
told that they must irrigate 25
percent of residential yards with
low volume irrigation or have
no irrigation at all. in those ar-
eas. Experts say that in the year
2020, Florida's population will
likely double. That and the fact
that often Florida experiences
severe droughts resulting in salt
intrusion into its aquifers, tells
us there really is not a lot of
potable water. Even though
Florida is a peninsula covered
by lakes and rivers, astonish-
ingly there is less then three
percent of its water resources
that are usable.
Mark Roberts of "Rainbird"
says, "Florida is starting to
model their watering programs
after the West Coast markets."
Roberts went on to say "most
contractors don't like low vol-
ume irrigation, but are adapting
to the changing times. They
have found other benefits from
low volume irrigation by pro-
viding another service that the
competition may not offer."
John Hemphill, CIC of
Hunter Industries added, "we
know that many irrigation tech-
niques are derived from the
West Coast, and Florida is fol-
lowing suit.
Now Florida has realized that
it is also running out of water."
Hemphill helped advise com-
mittee members from the F.I.S.
(Florida Irrigation Society) who
assisted with the Water Author-
ity of Volusia better known as
(WAV) to create the low vol-
ume water ordinance that's cur-
rently in place. The first thing
WAV did was to ask contractors
what their thoughts were on
conserving Florida's water re-
sources. Most contractors
agreed that Florida could start
by utilizing more low volume
irrigation in its irrigation sys-
tems. This strongly indicates
that times are changing and that
every drop really does count!
Florida is fortunate to have
professionals like Mike Jacob-
son from Aquarius Brands and
Bill Hutcheon from Antelco
working with LCCC students to
educate them and their commu-
nities on how to save water and
do their part to conserve water
through low volume irrigation.
Both have given numerous in-
formative seminars at LCCC's


irrigation lab within the last six
years. Students are now leaving
the program with a clearer sense
of water conservation and
proper irrigation scheduling
techniques. So, go out there and
drip away to your hearts content
knowing that you are doing the
right thing! The plants are
thriving better than ever and our
grandchildren will have plenty
of water to drink. When all is
said and done, it comes down to
asking yourself one.question,
what is there to be scared of?
The answer is, nothing at all,
unless you happen to find your-
self in the middle of a horrifying
Stephen King novel.

Disaster Housing
Resource Web Site
Valuable Asset For
Applicants
Although the State of Florida
and the Department of Home-
land Security's Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency's
(FEMA) Florida Hurricane
Housing Hotline discontinued
operations on January 28, 2005,
there is still an ongoing source
of information for individuals
left homeless by the four Flor-
ida hurricanes of 2004.
The Disaster Housing
Resources website,
http://DHRonline.org, began
operations for the public on
October 29, 2004. FEMA and
the State Emergency Response
Team (SERT) established the
site as a central forum for Flor-
ida disaster victims displaced
because of recent hurricanes to
.search for immediate housing.
The website lists more than
13,000 housing resources.
"The Disaster Housing Re-
sources website is a quick and
easy way for hurricane victims
to find affordable, available
housing," said Craig Fugate,
.state coordination, officer.
"Such activity on the website
shows we are moving in the
right direction for impacted 16o-
ridians in need of housing."
Rental landlords who do not
have access to the Internet but
have property available to rent
may list their property by send-
ing their information via FAX at
407-858-6230 or 407-858-2018.
Property owners or their rep-
resentatives are adding available
rental units to the site daily.
Once a resource has been posted
for 30 days, the property owner
will be notified by e-mail that,
unless renewed, the resource
will be archived.
To date, applicants visiting
the site have looked over more
than 120,000 listings. Website
,activity continues to be steady,
with 116 site visits on January
24h.
The Website was developed
by Florida State University's
Florida Public Affairs Center
and is administered by FEMA
and SERT through October of
2005. Other partners include
the Florida Housing Finance
Corporation, the Florida Asso-
ciation of Realtors and the
Center for Disaster Risk Policy
at Florida State University.
Individuals who are without
housing due to the recent hurri-
canes are urged to register for
assistance first by calling 800-
621-FEMA (3362). The TTY
number for speech- or hearing-
impaired individuals is 800-
462-7585. Both numbers oper-
ate from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
(EST), seven days a week. The
deadline to apply for assistance
is February 28, 2005. After ap-
plying, those who have ques-
tions may visit a Disaster Re-
covery Center to meet face-to-
face with recovery specialists.
Floridians may also register
for assistance online. Those
with access to a computer
should enter the FEMA website
at http://www.fema.gov. Look
for and click on the words


"Register for Disaster Assis-
tance Online" located in the up-
per right-hand column in a
green box.
The State Emergency Re-
sponse Team (SERT) is a col-
laboration of Florida's state
agencies led by the state coordi-
nating officer. SERT's mission
is to ensure that Florida is pre-
pared to respond to emergen-
cies, recover from them, and
mitigate their impact. Visit

for the latest information on the
hurricane relief efforts.
