Gilchrist County Will Further

Negotiate Fee With Florida Rock

Involving Gas Line Extension


By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission in their February
21 board meeting held a Public
Hearing to discuss a Special
Permit Application by Florida
Rock to construct a 12-mile
natural gas pipeline extension.
This proposed pipeline would
begin at US-129 and continue
east to the Alachua County line
along CR-232.
The commission in their
February 7th meeting advised
the staff involving Joe Gilliam
Gilchrist County Clerk, John
McPherson County Attorney
and Ron McQueen County
Administrator to determine a


Benefit Luncheon
For Shelby Boyette
Family, Saturday,
February 26 At Bell
Park
A benefit luncheon for Shelby
and Rhonda Boyette and their
family will be held on Saturday,
February 26" at the Bell Park.
The Boyettes recently lost
their home and all of its con-
tents in a tragic fire. This
luncheon will be held from


reasonable fee and bring a
recommendation back to the
board.
Golden Hills Energy
Services, Inc represented
Florida Rock in the application.'
Greg Tilden, a representative of
the Colorado based corporation
was sent a letter from the county
attorney to advise them that the
county is considering a fee of
$72,000 as a user's fee
involving the pipeline
extension.
On Monday evening, Mr.
Tilden addressed the
commission to further discuss
the application for the gas line
extension through Gilchrist


11:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. A
donation of $5.00 per plate is
requested to benefit this family.
This luncheon will feature pork
and chicken, baked beans, cole-
slaw with bread and a drink.
Deliveries can be arranged
within a reasonable distance.
For more information contact

nations will be greatly appreci-
ated.


County.
"It is my opinion that since
this application is for a private
use, it should be paid for," John
McPherson advised the board.
He explained that this could be
identified as a user's fee for use
of right-of-way in Gilchrist
County. "This is a very difficult
issue on how to value this,"
McPherson explained to the
board.
Greg Tilden explained to the
board that market value of land
is used involving the value of
right-of-way on larger gas
pipelines in Florida. He
explained there has not been a
case involving Florida Law
regarding public right-of-way.
The consultant explained that
the draft map identifying the 12-
mile route along the north side
of CR-232 from the North
Florida Holstein area east to the
Alachua County line. Pilden
explained the 4-inch steel
pipeline is designed to 1400
PSI. The gas line is reported
will be used at 150-200 PSI.
The $72,000 users fee was
proposed by the attorney to be
paid up front as a flat fee to the
county. "The longer Gilchrist
County can receive revenue
from the pipeline the better
Gilchrist County will be," Joe
Gilliam explained.
A consultant with the Florida
Rock group explained that a gas
line extension along SR-26 west
of Trenton to Lancaster
Correctional Institute is in the
state right-of-way. The State of
Florida did not charge the
correctional institute a fee for
the pipeline that runs west an
estimated one half.mile to the
state facility.
Greg Tilden told the county
that if the gas line were installed
on private property, the owner
of the property would be
responsible for the relocation of
the line after the construction.
Commissioner Mitchell
Gentry asked the consultant if
Gilchrist County would be
involved in the inspection of the
construction of the line before it
is completed. Tilden explained
to the board that the Public
Service Commission and
Gilchrist County could inspect
the 'construction of the line
before it is completed.
Tilden explained to the

County Commission
Denies Payment Of
Legal Fees For
Former
Commissioner
By: John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County Attorney
John McPherson explained to
the five-member board in the
Monday afternoon meeting that
he had received a letter from
former Gilchrist County Com-
missioner Sue Suggs. Mrs.
Suggs requested that the attor-
ney ask the board to pay the le-
gal fees which her attorney Sam
Mutch had billed her for repre-
sentation in an Ethics Violation
case in 2004. The bill for the
legal fees is $2,263.72.
The Ethics Violation Com-
plaint involved the removal of a
speed limit sign on SE 70th
Avenue that was removed by
Mrs. Suggs' husband in 2004.
John McPherson explained
to the board that he just received
this information from Mrs.
Suggs within the last two
weeks. The attorney explained
that it was up to the board
whether to pay for the request or
not.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den explained to his fellow
commissioners that the County
Commission took action two
>)idr- ago to consider payment
of a Gilchris County Commis-
sioner's legal fees if the case in-
volved action that the commis-
sioner took in representing Gil-
christ County as a commis-
sioner. The board's decision in
this action required the invoice
for legal fees to be submitted to
Gilchrist County within 30 days
of the action when finalized.
Commissioner Durden made
a motion to deny the request to
pay the legal fees of Mrs. Suggs
because the invoice for
$2,263.72 was not submitted
within the time required.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
gave a second to the motion and
the board voted 5-0 in favor of
the action.


Bronson Man Shot
And Killed By Levy
County Deputies
After Resisting
Arrest
A 44-year-old Bronson area
man was fatally shot last Thurs-
day evening, February 17th at
6:50 p.m.
Matthew Lee Arthur,' age 44,
was shot after he pulled a gun
on two Levy County deputies.
The deputies had stopped Ar-
thur after following him for sev-
eral blocks through a subdivi-
sion in the general area of the
county landfill south of Bron-
son. Arthur was stopped be-
cause he had earlier broken a
temporary injunction for pro-
tection against domestic vio-
lence.
After a struggle in which the
officers tried to handcuff Ar-
thur, they tazed him unsuccess-
fully because his clothing was
too thick, then maced him twice.
Arthur managed to free himself
and run to his truck from which
he pulled out a gun. At that
point one of the deputies shot
him. An ambulance was called
to the scene at NE 104th Court
and NE 72nd Street. Arthur was
pronounced dead by the Levy
County EMT.
The Sheriff's Department
'immediately called in the Flor-
ida Department of Law En-
forcement to investigate the in-
cident. The two deputies
involved, Kerry Reynolds and
Danny Turner, 33, were put on
administrative leave until FDLE

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission surprised some
people attending the second
monthly meeting, February 21,
2005 in their action involving
several agenda items.
The first surprise was the
action that the board took
involving the invoice that was
submitted by former Gilchrist
County Commissioner Sue
Suggs. The former
commissioner felt the county
should pay her legal fees of
$2,263.72 that she encumbered
after having her personal
attorney represent her in an
ethics complaint that was filed
in early 2004.
Before Commissioner Suggs
left the board she indicated that
the ethics complaint has been
taken care of and she requested
the county pay for the attorney
fees involved. Gilchrist County
did not receive an invoice
involving this case until the
beginning of 2005. But, still the
former commissioner felt -the
people of Gilchrist County
should be responsible for
actions that she and her family'
&ere -nm\ol\ed in almost a year
ag '
In another action taken in the
Monday meeting, the board's 4-
1 decision in favor of the
Planning and Zoning Board's
recommendation to approve an
application for a Special Permit
for Excavation on property
adjacent to SE 70th Avenue.
'The board's decision to
permit the excavation of the
hilly property will provide a


better use of the land by the
leasee, Mr. Faircloth and the
.owner of the property, Mr.
Friese until the time comes for
the property to be rezoned. The
time will come when this parcel
of property will be suitable for a
commercial location.
A large group of residents
who live in the Waccasassa
community that travel the
stretch of road adjacent to this
property are very concerned
about the condition of the
southerly portion of SE 70th
Avenue.
Commissioner Durden's
point regarding the county's
responsibility to repave the road
when the time comes for the
road to be repaired is absolutely
the way the board needs to deal
with such action. This road has
been identified to be scheduled
for resurfacing in the 2005
budget workshops that will
begin in July of this year.
The last item of business that
I found most interesting was the
Special Permit Application that
Florida Rock has made to
Gilchrist County involving a 4"
natural gas pipeline from US-
129 along CR-232 to the
Alachua County line.
The process of permitting
this request is still in the
negotiating stages between the
county and the applicant. The
first stages of the negotiations
has identified the county will
agree.to pemrnt the use but there
will be a fee for the use of the
county right-of-way along the
12-mile proposed line.

John McPherson explained that

Gilchrist County Historical
Society met Tuesday night, Feb-
ruary 8th in Trenton to discuss
the upcoming Memorial Day
tribute honoring the late Sgt.
Ricky Lord, USMC. Sgt. Lord
was killed in action while serv-
ing his second tour in Iraq in
2004. The Trenton High School
graduate is the first native of the
county to be lost in the War on
Terror. The GCHS intends to
honor the memory of this gal-
lant young man for his sacrifice
so that millions can live in free-
dom, replacing tyranny with the
blessings of liberty. The GCHS
invites the community to share
in this appropriate honor in the
noble cause of liberty. For the
sixth consecutive year, we will
honor the memory of all who
have served and are serving by
commemorating the sacrifice of
the fallen.
This year's theme will be
"Let Freedom Ring!" because
so many great Americans have
given their lives for freedom.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "A
greater love hath no man than to
lay down his life for his
brother." As deeply as we
mourn those who have given all,
we honor their memory and
thanks to their sacrifice, free-
dom is ringing loud and clear in
parts of the world where it never
rang, before. With historic elec-
tions in Afghanistan and Iraq,
oppressive regimes have been
replaced by hope for a better
future. President Bush affirmed
the goals of the United States to
bear the torch of freedom to op-
pressed lands and serve notice
to tyrants: America will not sit
idly by while you enslave your
people.
The GCHS will meet again to
discuss the upcoming Memorial
Day event at the Bell Depot at
7:00 PM on Tuesday, March 8,
2005. All interested parties are
encouraged to attend and par-
ticipate in this worthy tribute.
Permission is being sought for a
parade tobegin at 10:00 AM at

determined to be insufficient.
The public hearing on Monday
night gave a much more
informative prospective of the
applicant's. request involving
what Gilchrist County'might
decide to request as to a fee for
the use of the right-of-way.
The board needs to take a
real close look at this issue
before they determine what they
might request of the applicant
involving the fee.
- It might even be determined
that the applicant considers
taking another route outside of
Gilchrist County to keep from
dealing with this board which
appears to want to make sure-
they are taking care of the future
of Gilchrist County before
permitting this application.
These issues involving
growth and land use will effect
Gilchrist County citizens long
after the individuals currently in
office are no longer in the
present positions. A hasty
decision involving a few dollars
is not in the best interest of the
residents of Gilchrist County.

Trenton High School and pro-
ceed southward down US 129 to
the community center. The
GCHS will also ask the County
Commission for permission to
place a marker honoring veter-
ans at the courthouse and will
begin its dedication and tribute
to Sgt. Ricky Lord at 11:00 AM.
The tribute will be followed by
a luncheon at the community
center at no charge for veterans
who have given so much to
make this nation free.
If your organization would
like to participate in the parade,
please contact Major Stroupe,
GCHS Treasurer and parade co-
ordinator at 352-463-3188. The
theme "Let Freedom Ring"
lends itself to some wonderfully
patriotic floats, and more im-
portantly, demonstrates the de-
termination and certain success
of our nation's armed forces in
combating evil championing the
cause of good in the world. We
have established a modest fund-
raising goal of $1,500.00 to pay
for the cost of the marker,
luncheon, and plaques for the
Lord family. If you would like
to contribute to this annual ex-
pression of gratitude for our
troops, please send checks to the
Gilchrist County Historical So-
ciety, PO Box 367, Trenton, FL
32693, ATTN: Major Stroupe.
At the request of the County
Commission, the GCHS has be-
gun to explore the process of
dedicating a portion of SR 26 in
honor of our fallen hero. Ap-
parently this is a lengthy proc-
ess, but with due diligence, we
hope to have the formalities
concluded by Memorial Day.
The GCHS wishes to thank
our community for its over-
whelming support in past trib-
utes, and looks forward to con-
tinuing our Memorial Day
tradition to express our heartfelt
gratitude for all who have given
their lives for our beloved
United States. God bless
America,

businessman and officer in the
organization, explained that the
$50.00 fee which the youth pay
to participate in each sport does
not pay for the maintenance of
the, facility, the insurance or the
many other needs that are re-.
quired to operate a multi-field
complex like the "Field of
Dreams." He went on to say that
the electrical bill to provide
lights for the youth,to play after
dark costs on an average of
$5,500.00 a year.
"At the present time Suwan-
nee Valley Leagues has $10,000
in the' bank," Bryant explained.
"The equipment that our base-
ball teams use is in terrible con-
dition. We don't buy any bat-


ting helmets because most play-
ers have their own," continued
Bryant. He went on to say that
"The catching equipment that
our baseball teams use belongs
to each individual catcher. The
football helmets that are used to
protect our kids in the football
program have to be re-certified
and checked to make sure all
parts are in great condition. This
will cost the organization
$25.00 per helmet."
Scott Guthrie, the treasurer
of the parent company of Su-
wannee Valley Leagues, ex-
plained that the organization
held some very successful fund-
raising programs last year, but
can't continue-to do these for
additional funding for the fu-
ture.
In the past Gilchrist County
has provided funding to GCRA
based on $3.00 per child. In
2004 the organization did not
request funding from the county
during the budget workshops, so

Right Whales Now
Calving Off The
Coast Of Florida
North Atlantic right whales
have been spotted off Jackson-
ville Beach recently, according
to researchers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
The only known calving
ground for the right whale is lo-
cated off the coasts of Florida
and Georgia. From December
through March, pregnant whales
migrate from their northern
feeding areas to the sheltered
waters of the calving ground to
give birth.
According to Alicia Wind-

I Will Build My Church
(Kent Heaton)


Two thousand years ago, an Architect stood be-
fore a group of men and declared He would build
a church. This church was not like anything man
had ever seen. The Architect was foreseeing a
plan that would change the world. He had a de-
sign for building a church that would never fall
nor deteriorate. Its wall would always glisten, its
foundation would always stand firm and its high-
est aim would always be towards the Father of the
Architect. Jesus said, "I will build MY church"
(Matthew 16:18).
Luke records the beginning of this church
promised by Jesus. The writer of Acts declares
plainly in Acts 2:42, "And the Lord added to the
church daily such as should be saved." The
church is found throughout the book of Acts and
the epistles of the New Testament. The promise
made by the great Architect was brought to pass
by the early disciples. Jesus built His church.
Down through the ages, men have tried to
change or improve upon the design of the church
promised by Jesus. An early departure from the
plan of Christ took place as men departed from
"the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and
doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy,
having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
forbidding to marry, and commanding to ab-
stain from meats, which God hath created to be
received with thanksgiving of them which be-
lieve and know the truth" (1 Timothy 4:1-3).
Less than five hundred years passed, men built
churches that characterize the philosophies and
doctrines of their own beliefs. Not satisfied with
the early design and purpose of the church built
by Jesus, these men created a reformation of the
great apostate church then ruling in the world. To-
day, churches exist that still fail to characterize
the early designand purpose of the New Testa-


ment church.
Jesus built His church as He promised and this
church began two thousand years ago. His church
began on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2). Churches
begun by men cannot boast of this claim as all Prot-
estant churches are less than five hundred years old.
Jesus built His church; men built their churches.
Luke describes the Lord adding to the church the
one that is two thousand years old the saved (Acts
2:47). What can be added to those churches that are
not two thousand years old?
The design of the church Jesus built is with men
who are elders ruling and guiding the flock (Acts
11:30; 14:23; 15:4; 20:17; 1 Timothy 3:1-7; 5:17;
Titus 1:5; James 5:14; 1 Peter 5:1). This plan is not
found in the churches built by men. Worship in the
earliest church is simple in design, form and prac-
tice. The early disciples of the church built by Jesus
"continued steadfastly in the apostles' doctrine
and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in
prayers" (Acts 2:42). They sang together in
"psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing
and making melody" in their hearts to the Lord
(Ephesians 5:19). They gave of their means through
sacrificial giving not tithing (1 Corinthians 16:2;
2 Corinthians 9:6-11).
The early church remembered each first day of
the week the supper of the Lord (Matthew 26:26-
30; Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:17-34). The adher-
ents of Jesus Christ taught the necessity of faith, be-
lief, repentance, commitment, confession and the
necessity of baptism for salvation (Mark 16:15,16;
Matthew 28:18-20; Romans 6:3,4; Galatians
3:26,27; Colossians 2:11-14; 1.Peter 3:21). Church-
es built by men teach salvation another way (Gala-
tians 1:8,9). Jesus built HIS church; men built
THEIR CHURCHES. The church Jesus built will
stand all others will fall (Matthew 15:13,14).

Pure Water
Wilderness Executive
Director Lannie
Cardona Retires
By Stacey Brown
On Wednesday, February 16th
at its regular board meeting,
board members and guests hon-
ored Lannie Cardona, Executive
Director of Pure Water Wilder-
ness, the Dixie-Gilchrist-Levy
Tourism Development Board, as
he is set to retire at the end of


February.
Mr. Cardona is a retired
Army Ranger and holds an
MBA degree and is a Certified
Public Accountant. Along with
Fanning Springs Mayor Carol
McQueen and others, he was in-
strumental in forming the tour-
ism development board in 2000.
They had the vision that this
area is Florida's "diamond in'
the rough," .and that nature-
based and heritage tourism was
going to be vital to economic
development in the previously
economically-depressed Su-
wannee River Valley. Over the
last four years since the organi-
zation's inception, this concept
has proven to be true.
Mr. Cardona is also the Ex-
ecutive Director of the Nature
Coast Business Development
Council and.the Levy County


Tourism Development Council
and is retiring from all three po-
sitions. It has been decided to
divide the position into two; one
full-time position for the
NCBDC and the LCTDC, and
one part-time position for the
Pure Water Wilderness.
A luncheon was held after the
board meeting at Fanning
Springs City Hall. Guests at-
tended from Visit Florida and
the Florida Association of
Counties to wish Mr. Cardona
and his wife Sarah the very best
in their retirement. Mr. Cardona
was presented with a plaque and
a gift certificate for a night's
stay in a luxurious bed and
breakfast, among other gifts.
We thank Mr. Cardona for all
his selfless hard work over the
years. He will be sorely missed
and we wish him and Sarah the
best.


From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
The beginning reader book
that I read this week was The
Prince and the Pauper in the
Disney style. The king's sol-
diers were robbing the people of
their food and wood to heat
their homes. The young prince
saw Mickey who looks exactly
like him and he then suggested
they exchange places and that
would allow the prince to travel
around without being recog-
nized. When he saw how the
soldiers were treating his people
and after he was crowned king,
She threw the bad soldiers into
the dungeon and helped his
people.

For the junior age reader I
read a historical book, Daniel
Boone from the Heroes of
America series. From the time
Daniel was a child he wanted to
hunt and to explore the western
regions of America. This is a
very interesting book about how
he pioneered the frontier all the
way to Missouri where he lived
and died as an old man.
For the adult reader I recom-
mend The Run by Stuart Wood.
Will Lee is running for Presi-
dent of the United States but
there are opposing forces trying
to discredit or to kill him. This
is a new author for me but I will
recommend his writings if you
like mysteries and intrigue.
We are busy carding and
cataloguing books, trying to get
additional new editions to tempt
you to read more. Of course we
are still tracking down overdue
books by using a new computer
program and encouraging our
patrons to get these returned to
the library.
Please note Bell Library will
be closed Saturday, February
26, 2005 to allow time for the
floors and carpets to be cleaned.
Sorry for any inconvenience.

r Knitting Knots For
STots
The Labor, Delivery, Recov-
n ery and Postpartum Department
(LDRP) at North Florida Re-
gional Medical Center
(NFRMC) has been knitting
baby caps and sweaters since
November to raise money for
the March of Dimes.
Maryann Grottano, RN, La-
t bor and Delivery, took her pas-
sion for knitting and created the
Knitting Knots for Tots 'fund-
Sraiser for the prevention of pre-


mature births.
"People think premature de-
livery happens to women who
make poor choices. It doesn't.
It happens across the board,"
says Grottano. "People don't
realize how severe a problem
prematurity is until it happens to
them."
Grottano got the entire LDRP
department involved in the
Knots for Tots Club, where she
actively teaches co-workers how
to knit items for babies. Her co-
workers have been instrumental
to the success of Knitting Knots,
from acquiring wool yarn dona-
tions to learning to knit and
spreading the word about the
program.
"I started a spark, but they ran
with it," says Grottano of her
enthusiastic knitting team.

The Knots for Tots Club pro-
duces baby caps and sweaters
that are available in exchange
for a donation to the March of
Dimes. The club has already
produced nearly 200 caps. At
present, Knitting Knots for Tots
donation stations are set up in
the Labor and Delivery and
Postpartum departments in the
Women's Center at NFRMC.
Grottano's desire to help alle-
viate the problem of premature
birth led her to the process of
turning Knitting Knots for Tots
into a non-profit organization, a
venture she's just begun to un-
dertake. When people learn
what a devastating problem
prematurity is and how easy it is
to help, Grottano says, "I know
they'll jump on board."

Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Post 91 .is a Smoke-Free'Post, with plenty of room outside if you
have to have a cigarette' The building is smoke free, even when it is let
out for donations. The Post does not have a lounge, partly because it is
located.next door to a school and because the majority of the members'
did not want one. The Post has been in existence since 1932 and still
serves the community, youth and, of course, the veteran. Post 91 uses
fund-raisers for the building upkeep and for the projects that the Post,
does in the community. These fund-raisers do require volunteers, and for
the most part, the Post 91 Legionnaires come through for the American
Legion and the community. There is always room for more volunteers
and members in the Post and the programs of the American Legion can
benefit the area in a number of ways. Why not come by and see where
you can fit in.
. Post 91 meets on the third Thursday of the month at the Post Home,
five miles north of the traffic light in Trenton, on US-129, at 'Walker's
Curve'. The next monthly meeting will be March 17th, at 7:00 PM.
Beginning at 5:30 PM; the Post will begin serving a Donation Spaghetti
Dinner and this is open to anyone. The suggested donation schedule is.
$5.00 for adults and $2.50 for youngsters twelve and under. This is for all
you can eat spaghetti, salad and garlic bread. The beverages are coffee
and iced tea and usually cake or cookies for dessert. Plan to attend the
meeting and bring family and friends with you.
Post 91 does not have an Auxiliary at this time, but we are trying to
establish an Auxiliary and a Sons of the American Legion Squadron as
well. The idea is to get back to the family atmosphere where there is
something for everyone, in the American Legion family. There are
programs for all ages and all of the programs can benefit our local
community and our veterans. What better use of some spare time could
you find that can accomplish so much? Come see us on Thursday, March
17th and see what the American Legion is about.
In March of 1919, a group of men, all veterans of the War in France,
met in Paris to discuss what might be done for the veterans of the recent
Great War. Some veterans had been seriously wounded and needed care.
The men meeting in Paris began what is now known as the American
Legion and the Legion today is still working to care for our veterans,
wounded and otherwise. With duty in the Armed Forces, certain benefits
are earned through your service, and are not 'privileges'. Many of these
benefits came at the request of veterans in the Veteran Service
Organizations, such as the American Legion. For an example, the idea for
veterans health care and the original GI Bill came from the American
Legion, from Legionnaires that felt these and other benefits and ideas for
the American Veteran were right and fair compensation for service to
America. The monthly meeting in March at Post 91 will celebrate the
"birthday" of 'OUR' American Legion. Join us at the 'Birthday party',
March 17th, at 7:00 PM at Post 91 in Trenton.
Remember our Armed Forces all over the world each day in your
thoughts and prayers; and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those called to active duty, helping
out however and whenever you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91

Hlow To Intervene To
!op Bullying: Tips
For On-The-Spot
Intervention At
school
':-As adults we may feel un-
certain about how to handle
bullying when we see or hear it
happening. Or we may respond
ifi'vays that don't make the best
use of the opportunity to teach a
young person the difference
between appropriate and inap-
p6opriate behavior. If the situa-
tion is not handled appropri-
ately, we could end up
inadvertently promoting,' rather
than reducing bullying. Here
are some tips to help respond
more effectively on-the-spot and
make the best use of the "teach-
able moment" with all students
a4tAschool. .
SWhen you see or hear bul-
hing:
* Immediately stop the bully-
ia.g: Stand between the
hild(ren) who bullied and those
who were bullied, preferably
Locking eye contact between
ihem. Don't send any students
rJway- especially bystander(s).
,1


Don't immediately ask about or
discuss the reason for the bul-
lying or try to sort out the facts.
Refer to the bullying be-
havior and to the relevant
school rules against bullying.
Use a matter-of-fact tone of
voice to state what behaviors
you saw/heard. Let students
know that bullying is unaccept-
able and against school rules
(e.g."Calling someone names is
bullying and is against our
school rules," or "That was
bullying. I won't allow students
to push or hurt each other that
way").
Support the bullied child in
a way that allows him/her to re-
gain self-control, to "save
face," and to feel supported and
safe from retaliation. Make a
point to see the child later in
private if she/he is upset, but
don't ask what happened at the
time of the incident. It can be
very uncomfortable to be ques-
tioned in front of other students.
Let his/her teachers) know
what happened to pro\ ide addi-
tional support and protection.
Increase supervision to assure
the bullying is not repeated and


does not escalate.
Include the bystanders in
the conversation and give them
guidance about how they might
appropriately intervene or get
help next time. Don't put by-
standers on-the-spot to explain
publicly what they observed.
Use a calm, matter-of-fact, sup-
portive tone of voice to let them
know that you noticed their in-
action or that you are pleased
with the way they tried to
help-even if they weren't suc-
cessful. If they did not act, or if
they responded in aggressive
ways, encourage them to take a
more active or pro-social role
next time (e.g. "Maybe you
weren't sure what to do. Next
time, please tell the person to
stop or get an adult to help if
you feel you can't work together
to handle the situation"').
.If appropriate, impose im-
mediate consequences for stu-
dents who bully others. Do not
require students to apologize or
make amends during the heat-
of-the-moment (everyone
should have time to cool offl.
All consequences should be


F I


logical-and connected to the
offense. As a first step, you
might take away social opportu-
nities (e.g. recess, lunch in the
cafeteria). Let students who
bully know you will be watch-
ing them and their friends
closely to be sure there is no
retaliation.
Notify colleagues.
Do not require the students
to meet and "work things out."
Unlike .conflicts, bullying in-
volves. a power imbalance
which means -this strategy will
not work. Trying to find a way
to "work things out" can re-
traumatize the student who was
bullied and does not generally
improve relationships between
the parties. Instead, encourage
the student who bullied to make
amends in a way (after follow-
up with an adult) that would be
meaningful for the child who
was bullied.
Individual follow-up and
support
Even if you make good use of
the "teachable moment" when
bullying occurs, you will still
encounter situations where staff
members will need to provide
follow'-up interventions., 'Fol-
low-up is time-consuming and
may not be appropriate in every
case of bull ing. In addition,
staff-members providing fol-
lowo-up are likelN to need spe-
cialized skills or training-as
\ell as enough time to invesi-
gate problems. to administer
appropriate discipline, or to
provide support or therapeutic
intervention.
Provide follow-up interven-
tions, as needed, for the students
who were bullied and for those
who bullied. Determine what
type of situations and level of
severity of bullying incidents
require follow-up intervention
from adults and designate who
should intervene in various cir-
cumstances,
Notify parents of children
who are/involved, as appropri-
ate/.
Bullied students need to
process the circumstances of the
-Jt4l.,il4,nt'.. their f .abo" ia.ard get support. -.Som
may need assistance reading or
interpreting social signals, prac-
ticing assertive behavior,
building self-esteem, or identi-
'fying friends and classmates
who can give them support.

need help to learn how to use
power in socially appropriate
ways (e.g,. focusing their energy

When there are suspicions

Bell's Purple Powerhouse
Band Boosters, along with the
Bell High School's Drama Pro-
gram would like to thank every-
one who came out and sup-
ported our "Evening of the
Arts" Dinner Theater, that was
held on Thursday, February 10th,
at the Bell Elementary Cafete-
ria.
We had a tremendous turn-
out from the community for our
first-ever Performing Arts
Theater. This was a combined
fund-raising effort for support
of both our band and drama
programs.
E'erNone enjoyed a delicious
homemade Italian dinner, while
listening to the musical selec-
tions performed by our talented
band students. Vocal duets
were sung, piano solos played,
poetry read, and the drama class
brought the evening to a close


with an entertaining, hugely
successful, side-splitting play.
The combined fund-raiser
was a success, with over 240
people in attendance.
We would like to extend our
heartfelt thanks to all of our
supporters and a special thank
you to Mr. Reed, Assistant
Principal of Bell Elementary,
for lending his expertise in the
sound and lighting department.
We especially want to thank
our "behind-the-scenes help"

Scholarship Program
Reduces Turnover
More than 2800 early child-
hood professionals received
scholarships to attend college
through the Florida T.E.A.C.H.
Early Childhood Scholarship
program during 2003-2004.
Early childhood teachers who
received college scholarships
through the T.E.A.C.H. program
took more college courses, re-
ceived better pay and generally
stayed longer in their child care
programs, according to a report
released recently by the Child
Care Services Association
(CCSA).
In the report, The T.E.A.C.H.
Early Childhood and Child
Care WAGE$ Projects:
Helping Meet the Demand for
Tomorrow's Workforce Today
2003-04 Annual Program Re-
port, the CCSA highlighted the
latest accomplishments of these
programs. Together, the
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood
and Child.Care WAGES Pro-
jects work to increase the edu-
cation, compensation and reten-
tion of early childhood
professionals in Florida as well


as 22 states nationwide.
"Improvements in the child
care work force foster positive
outcomes for children, leading
to greater successes in school
and greater opportunities for the.
economic success of families
and businesses," said Sue Rus-
sell, president of the CCSA.
"By sending teachers of young
children back to school, the
T.E.A.C.H. project helps .im-
prove the quality of early edu-
cation nationwide. Parents can
go to work, and children can
learn."
During the past year, Jhe
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood
Project awarded 'more than
18,500 scholarships nationally.
The CCSA is in the process of
talking to additional states about
implementing the program. The
WAGE$ Project is available
in four states. Both have strong
records of reducing turnover in
the early care and education in-
dustry. In Florida, the
T.E.A.C.H. Program boasts a
turnover rate of less than eight
percent and the WAGE$
Florida Project has a five per-
cent turnover rate both sub-
stantially lower than the na-
tional average of 30 to 40
percent.
"Because of our proven out-
comes, states increasing their
investment in pre-kindergarten
programs often look to the
T.E.A.C.H. and WAGE$
projects as effective strategies to
,support the earls childhood
work force," said Russell.
"These Projects help child care
businesses keep their best early
childhood professionals, which
is good for business and good
for the children and their fami-
lies they serve."
According to the .report,
T.E.A.C.H. scholarships helped
build the capacity of higher
education systems in .partici-
pating states by increasing the
demand for coursework-.
"T.E.A.C.H. is paving the way
with institutions of higher edu-
cation," said Helen Blank, sen-
ior fellow at the National


Women's Law Center, and a
member of the T.E.A.C.H. Early
Childhood National Advisory
Committee.
"Those systems have re-
sponded by creating not only
more courses but also a more
flexible and therefore respon-
sive system designed to meet
the needs of adult learners,
many of whom are employed
full-time and have never been to
college."
The Child Care WAGE$
.Florida 'Project provides salary
supplements tied to educational
attainment. More than 318
early childhood professionals
were awarded salary supple-
ments during the 2003-2004 fis-
cal year. Because of the pro-
gram's success, continuity' of
care for these children improved
dramatically.
"Because salary supplements
are tied to the completion of
college credit hours, certificates
and degrees, WAGE$ partici-
pants represent an educated
segment of the workforce," said
Allison Miller, vice-president of
compensation initiatives at the
CCSA. "They have more op-
portunities than their colleagues
to receive higher pay through
other employment, yet their re-
tention rate in the field is im-
pressively high."
T.E.A.C.H. and WAGE$
projects nationwide are sup-
ported by the T.E.A.C.H Early
Childhood Technical Assis-
tance and Quality Assurance
Center, which recently secured
additional funding from the An-
nie E. Casey Foundation. These
funds will allow the Center to
continue services for currently
participating states and help
other states bring T.E.A.C.H. or
WAGE$ to their state.
The Florida Children's Forum
is the statewide administrator
for the Florida T.E.A.C.H. Early
Childhood Scholarship pro-
gram and the Child Care
WAGE$ Florida Project. The
CCSA provides free referral
services to families seeking
child care, technical assistance


to child care businesses, and
educational scholarships and
salary supplements to child care
professionals through the
T.E.A.C.H. Early Childhood
and Child Care WAGE$ Pro-
jects. The CCSA licenses its
programs to states across the
country and provides consulta-
tion and guidance to others
seeking to solve child care con-
cerns.

GREETINGS
This is such a cute cartoon
and I hope it prints alright. I'm
sure you'll get the meaning of
it. I don't blame the fire hy-
drant one bit for "turning the ta-
ble" on that naughty dog.
Enough is enough!!

Your dreams can be realities.
.They are the stuff that leads


us through life toward great
happiness...

Money is a singular thing. It
ranks with love as man's
greatest source of joy, and
with death as his greatest
source of anxiety...

ANNIVERSARY
Happy Anniversary to Ken-
neth and Pat Crosby of Wac-
casassa Lake on February 24h...
"Have a lovely day celebrat-
ing!"

If you say what you like, don't
,always expect to like what you
hear...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Why is a horse race over ob-
stacles called a "steeplechase"?
Fox hunting gave us the term.
If during a fox hunt no fox was
found or the fox got away, some
member of the hunt was likely
to say, "I'll race youto the next
town," and point to its most
distinctive feature at a distance
the church steeple. The hunt-
ers would then start off, no
longer on a fox chase, but on a
"steeple chase." From this, any
race over barriers is called a
"steeple chase."

RIB TICKLERS
You see a gorgeous girl at a
party and you say to her, "Hi,
I'm very rich. Marry me!"
That's Direct Marketing.
You see a gorgeous girl at a
party and you get her telephone
number. The next day you call
and say, "I'm very rich, Marry
me." That's Telemarketing.
You're at a party and see a
gorgeous girl. She walks up to
you and says, "You are very
rich." That's Brand Recogni-
tion.
You see a gorgeous girl at a
party and say to her, "I'm rich.
Marry me." She slaps your
face. That's Customer Feed-
back.

The census taker introduced
himself to a woman who was
working in her yard and asked if
he could interview her.
She agreed to be interviewed
and led the man inside. He
started with a few demographic
questions, and then moved on to
her family.
So, how. many children do
you and your husband have?" he


asked.
- "Four."feqiN* Meebie,.Mmini
and George."
"What?" the census taker re-
plied, amused. "Why'd you
name your fourth child
George?"
"Because we didn't want any
Moe."

In his form letter to custom-
ers, the president of the local
electronics store couldn't have
been more apologetic. The new
computer system's failure made
a mess of everything, he said,
but our patronage was very im-
portant to him. Therefore, he
wrote, "If you are unhappy with
an experience in one of our
stores, I sincerely hope you'll
return and, once again, experi-
ence more."

servings.
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon garlic, crushed
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup green pepper,

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Excess Economy
We save our money for the
day... When we may'take a
rest;And, hen at "st 1W n.ri
afford...1To uy the veryfest..
And in a way this plan is
good... For people to pursue...
With perseverance great
enough... To see the project
through... Provided we protect
ourselves... From cold, finan-
cial facts... And do not fail to
take some time... To play and
to relax... But all too often we
are so... Intent upon our goal...
That we neglect the comforts
of... The body and the soul...
And when our hoard has
reached the height... Of all we
want to buy... Our feebleness
informs us it... Is almost time to
die.
James J. Metcalfe

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
When I look'back on all these
worries I remember the story
of the old man who said on his
deathbed that he had had a lot
of trouble in his life, most of
which never happened....

February 11-17
This report represents some
significant events the FWC
handled over the past week;
however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of
Law Enforcement.


UNION COUNTY
On February 13th at approxi-
mately 7:00 p.m., Investigator
Lt. David Lee was following up
on information about illegal
hunting of deer from area road-
ways. A truck was observed
sweeping two separate pastures
with its headlights. The truck
was followed to a residence lo-
cated off CR 18. The driver
was found in possession of a
loaded, chambered .22-magnum
rifle. During the stop, Lee saw
in plain view, a bottle that had
what appeared to be crack co-
caine. While attempting to se-
cure the suspected drugs, the
suspect grabbed the bottle from
Lee and threw it into a wooded
area. The suspect then began
fighting with Lee. The suspect
was subdued after a brief strug-
gle and placed in handcuffs.
Other FWC officers and a Un-
ion County Deputy arrived on
the scene. A search led to the
recovery of the bottle. A field
test was conducted and tested
positive for cocaine. A sus-
pected crack pipe was recovered
on the ground after being dis-
carded by the suspect during the
struggle. The suspect was iden-
tified as Bernie J. Boyette, a 39-
year-old Worthington Springs
man. The suspect was booked
into Union County Jail charged
with: possession of a controlled
substance (crack cocaine), re-


sisting arrest with violence, pos-
session of drug paraphernalia
and attempting to take deer with
gun and light. The suspect's .22
Smagnum rifle was seized.
This same person was ar-
rested January 22nd and charged
with two counts of taking deer
with gun and light. He pled no
contest in Union County Court
February 8th and was adjudi-
cated guilty, fined $1,350 plus
court costs, forfeiture of his rifle
and spotlight for the previous
recent arrest.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well are you as excited as I
am? I mean really ex-
cited...jumping up and down,
can hardly keep your feet on the
ground excited? It's every-
where...signs of Spring.
Oh, you know how Spring is.
She's a shy lass to be sure. She
is quite different from that
brassy brazen Autumn, who
splashes her bright colors across
the landscape in bold strokes
that you can't miss.
Spring is much more sub-
dued; at first, almost subliminal.
If you're not really aware and
focused you can easily miss her
first flirtatious overtures. But if
you look closely you will see
tiny green soon-to-be-leaves on
the bridal wreaths and tender
green shoots poking through the
still cold soil that hold the
promise of tulips and daffodils
and daylilies. Wild pear and
plum trees are beginning to don
their lacey white dresses and red
buds are shyly dotting the land-
scape with soft shades of
mauve.
Along the roadside, near
Trenton, timid blue and laven-
der phlox are peeking through
the dead weeds and grass, afraid
that yet another freeze will
come.
Yes, Spring, that.shy coquette
is definitely flirting with us. All
the birds know it. Flocks of
plump robins gleaned our yards
for fat worms and other delecta-
ble delights. Rabbits are hop-
ping around the flower beds in
anticipation of crisp green
shoots to nibble on before they
barely get above the soil. Yes,
she's testing the waters, not
anxious to put on a full-fledged
fashion show until Jack.Frost
has skated across our wind-
shields for the very last time.
Spring holds the promiseof
re-birth and renewal; the resur-
rection of that which was dead
but has risen again to bring joy
to our hearts and souls. I be-
lieve God planned it this way to
remind us of His Son's, our
Lord's resurrection. And all of
nature rejoices and sings praises
to His Glory.
B 'I,', none-th'- le -.: on
W Wedma^Ely, .Fledv .[sry^ had
to turn the hose on to wash the
ice off my windshield, hope-
fully for the very last time.
Nineteen Joyful Hearts and one,
most welcomed visitor, Judy
Pflueger, met that morning to
work and play. We were miss-
ing a few and hope that we'll
see them on the 23rd for our
"Make It & Take It" day.
Alberta Swanner- was in the
hospital for surgery.and is now
home recovering. Our prayers
are with her and we thank the
Lord that things seem to be
coming right along. Mary Lou
Ryder has a really bad sprained
ankle and can't get up and down
those stairs of hers and so we
need to keep her in our prayers
as well. Rita Simcoe has what-
ever is going around and if
that's not enough her daughter


Valerie is in the hospital and her
other daughter Charlene,
twisted her ankle. Lera Town-
send fell while visiting in
Washington D.C. and tore a
ligament in her leg and is doing
better since going to physical
therapy. Jackie Moore, who fell
and had 13 stitches in her head,
is feeling much better. Evelyn
Wood has been enduring a
really bad back and I had a bad
fall. Luckily, being fat when I
fall it's like landing on a tram-
poline so I wasn't hurt just
bruised and knocked
silly...praise God. But as you
can see our prayer list is grow-
ing faster than sand spurs.
Three of our Joyful Hearts
went to Tampa to the State Fair,
Ann Mangone, Cathy Strom and
Elaine Nemeth. To say they
had a great time and lots of fun
just might be the under-
statement of the year. I told
them to eat plenty of good
things for me...and they did.
However, poor Elaine ate
something, she thinks maybe a
luscious strawberry dessert, and
had a really bad allergic reac-
tion to whatever is was. She
said she started feeling itchy
and by the time she got ready
for bed she was bright red. She
must have looked like she was
wearing red long drawers. It
lasted several days but thank
goodness she's back to normal.
Evelyn Wood entered our
"Butterfly" quilt and it took
third place. Elaine Nemeth's
"Grandmother's Garden" quilt
won an honorable mention and
Alice Binns, our Swedish
weaver diva, won second place
with her woven throw. Rita
Simcoe took an honorable men-
tion for hers. Elaine also took.
third place for a crocheted bed-
spread. And her friend, Edith
Cheskey, who visits with us,
took third place for a crocheted
tablecloth and honorable men-
tion for a crocheted doily. All
in all there were nine entries and
they came home with seven rib-
bons:..not a bad haul.
Elaine, Ann and Evelyn set to
work quilting while Matty
Turner and Ruth Wilkerson cro-
cheted. Ruth is working on a
lap robe and Matty says she's
crocheting a long thing but just
what she 'is not quite sure and
we all had a good laugh. Judy
Pflueger was crocheting a
Ibeautif' l Jd'll wiphi 'lo ell
purple rose center.
Paulene Martin was knitting
mittens while Ann Taylor em-
broidered a pillowcase and Ge-
neva Carver was hooking her
rug. Bonnie Edwards, Lu
Rowland, Jackie Moore, Heidi
Kamp, Cathy Strom and of
course Alice Binns were all
doing their Swedish weaving.
Cathy brought Alice a glittery
"Queen-For-A-Day" crown to
wear and a colorful pinwheel
scepter. By the way, thanks to
Cathy I have about seven rows
finished on my Swedish weav-
ing. She's afraid I'll never get
done without a little help from
my friends and she's so right.
Marvine Deer made an apron
on her machine and Pat Luka
worked on her knitted throw to
which she is adding a beautiful,
highly detailed overlay. It


could be a winner at next year's
fair. Barbara Merick was busy
knitting on her afghan and Di-
ana Lynn cross-stitched while I
embroidered on a pillowcase
and then made a feeble attempt
to do my Swedish weaving.
You'll have to ask Maxine Hale
what she was doing be-
cause...right, I forgot.
Evelyn made tiny bite-sized
quiches for us to have with our
lunches and they were sooo de-
licious. We all want the recipe.
After the blessing we all ate our
lunches and sounded like a
flock of magpies chatting nois-
ily.
We sang Happy Birthday to
the February gals...Matty
Turner, Paulene Martin and Di-
ana Lynn. The cake was a
Martha Washington cake, white
cake with pecans and mara-
schino cherries and fluffy white
icing...so yummy.
We said our good-byes with
hugs and see-you-laters and
made our way home feeling
loved and cared for...He is an
awesome God and we are grate-
ful for this gift He gives to us.
This is my command: Love
each other. John 15:17...

swap projects.


Springhouse
Quilter's News
The night group of the
Springhouse Quilters meet on
the same day as the day group,
only they have a night meeting.
They are called the Nite Owls
since most of these ladies have
outside jobs and cannot attend
the day meetings. Their meet-
ings are approximately two
hours each time they meet so
most of their work is not com-
pleted during their actual meet-
ing time.
The Nite Owls have work-
shops, classes and meetings
similar to the day group but


since they have limited time.to
complete their work during their
meeting time, they have to
complete most of their work at
home. During the February
meeting, Nite Owl member
Karen Philman had the most
projects finished by showing
completed projects of small and
large quilts finished since the
January meeting. Donna Hayes
displayed an "Angel" quilt she
made for her granddaughter.
This quilt featured an angel in
the center of each block and was
beautiful in the blue fabric she
selected for the quilt.

Kidnap-Proof Your
Child In Less Than
One Hour
Dok Lee has developed a
system of self-protection for
children of all ages to safeguard
them from abductors and child
molesters. Dok Lee decided to
use his life's experiences and
training to help parents teach
their children how to defend
themselves against society's
predators.
' Dok Lee was trained as an
elite, commando for interna-
tional operations. He's also
been a professional bodyguard
to some of the wealthiest and
most powerful people in the
world. "I know practically eve-
rything there is to know about
physical security and survival,"
states Lee. "It's been my entire
life. It's time I shared these tal-
ents to help our children."
With our society becoming
more and more dangerous, and
our children becoming more
vulnerable, Lee felt the need to
reveal his techniques and se-
crets. He's organized the Fear
Not Foundation to distribute in-
formation on actual techniques
and moves children can use to
protect themselves, as well as a
step-by-step Family Safety
System that parents can imple-
ment immediately.
Kids will learn:
How to escape if they are
grabbed by one wrist...
or both Wrists.l'" i i,:
-Howto escape if lifted or
picked up.
How to escape if they are
grabbed by the shoulders.

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
S11h 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.

Tuition And Fees
Deduction: Who
Qualifies And How?
Those facing skyrocketing
college tuition bills will want to
learn as much as possible about
how the tuition and fee deduc-
tion can lower their tax bills.
Before filing your 2004 tax re-
turn, read the Florida Society of
Certified Public Accountants'
(FICPA) response to the most
common questions about this
deduction.
What is the Tax 'Benefit of the
Tuition and Fees Deduction?


This deduction can reduce the
amount of your income that is
subject to tax by up to a maxi-
mum of $4,000 on your 2004
tax return that's up from
$3,000 in 2003. The tuition de-
duction is taken as an adjust-
ment to gross income, which
means you can claim this de-
duction even if you do not
itemize.
Who is Eligible for the Tui-
tion Deduction?
You may be able to deduct
qualified education expenses
paid during the year for your-
self, your spouse, or a depend-
ent. The amount you can deduct
depends on your modified ad-
justed gross income (MAGI).
You are not eligible for the tui-
tion deduction if another person
can claim an exemption for you
as a dependent. Also excluded
are married persons filing sepa-
rately.
What is the Amount of the
Tuition and Fees Deduction for
2004?
For 2004, you qualify for the
maximum deduction of $4,000
if your MAGI is not more than
$65,000 for single filers and
$130,000 for married taxpayers
filing jointly. If you're a single
filer and your MAGI is more
than $65,000 but not more than
$80,000, your deduction is lim-
ited to $2,000. The $2,000 de-'
duction also applies to joint fil-
ers whose MAGI is higher than
$130,000, but not more than
$160,000. No tuition and fees
deduction is allowed if your
MAGI exceeds $80,000 for sin-
gle filers and $160,000 for joint
filers. The $4,000 maximum
deduction remains in effect in
2005 after which it is scheduled
to expire.
What Education Expenses
Qualify?
Qualified expenses include
tuition and fees but not books,
personal or living expenses,
such as room and board. The
costs of course-related books
and supplies are not considered
qualified education expenses
unless these expenses must be

paid to the institution as a con-
dition of enrollment or atten-
dance.
What if I use Funds from a
Coverdell Education Savings
Account to Pay for Tuition and
Expenses?
When you pay your tuition
with ta\-ad\antaged education
fuhds'frbinm ;a' o\ erdelh Eduoa-
tiot S SavingsL AbPiunt-or -a, state
tuition plan, or with the interest
on U.S. savings bonds, these
amounts must be subtracted
from your qualified expenses to
arrive at the deductible amount.
The same rule applies to any
nontaxable employer-provided
education benefits you receive.
What about Graduate
School?
Graduate or undergraduate
level college courses can be de-
ducted and you don't have to be
a full-time student to qualify.
However, the educational insti-
tution must be eligible to par-
ticipate in the student aid pro-
giams administered by the
Department of Education. Vir-
tually all accredited public,
nonprofit and proprietary post-
secondary institutions are eligi-
ble.
What if I Have Two Children
in'College at the Same Time?
The tuition and fees deduc-
tion is $4,000 total per year, re-


gardless of how many depend-
ents are in school at the same
time.
Can I Take Either the Hope
or Lifetime Learning Credit and
the Tuition Deduction?
No, you cannot claim the tui-
tion deduction if you also take
the Hope or Lifetime Learning
credit for the same student in
the same year. Be aware that
credits are typically more bene-
ficial. So, before you take the
tuition deduction, determine
whether you can qualify for ei-
ther of the two education cred-
its.
Where Can I Get More Help?
Check the Internal Revenue
Service Web site at
www.irs.gov or.consult with a
Certified Public Accountant if
you would like to learn more
about how the tuition artd fees
deduction can save you valuable
tax dollars. CPAs can assist
you in developing a plan to
maximize savings while meet-
ing your tax responsibilities, so
be sure to consult with a CPA in
your area to learn more about
weathering tax time wisely.

the country, they hope to learn
as much as they can about the

should they have questions or
concerns about their plans. At
^'ai around the fifth year, we look
forward to checking in with our

how they are coming along with
their plans. Many of these

FWC Seeks Public
Input On Hunting
And Freshwater
Fishing Regulation
Changes
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) invites the public to
make suggestions on changes to
the 2006 2007 hunting and
freshwater fishing regulations.
Every two years, the FWC
provides the opportunity for the
public to recommend improve-
ments to,.or address new op-
portunities related to the way
the FWC manages Florida's
abundant game and freshwater
fish species, according to
Roland Garcia, Regional Di-
rector of the FWC's North
Central Region.
"We ask that you carefully
consider any ideas you may
have, print a copy of the Public
Input Form (available at:
http://myfwc.com/rule making/
PIPNorthCentral.pdf) and then
complete and return it to the
North Central Regional Office
in Lake City for each change
you propose by March 31," ex-
plained Garcia.
The forms can also be ob-
tained from the Regional Office
by calling 386.758.0525.
"We request that each form
addresses only one idea or
change. Tell us as much as you
can about your proposal and
why your idea will make hunt-
ing or freshwater fishing better
or how it will improve the con-
dition of our freshwater fish and
wildlife resources," he said.
This is not the time to suggest
changes to statutes or license
fees, nor address regulations on
saltwater fishing, endangered
species or other programs of the
Commission. There is a.sepa-
rate opportunity, in June of each
year, for saltwater fishing issues
to be evaluated and discussed.
Regulation changes resulting
from this process will not be-
come effective until July 2006.
Hunting regulation changes will


be published in public hunt
management area brochures
well in advance of the 2006-
2007 Seasons.

about the public input
process, please go to

Interim Secretary
Tucker Touts Success
Of Sunshine For
Seniors Program
More Than $460,000 In
Prescription Cost Savings
Achieved For Florida's.Elders
Florida Department of Elder
Affairs' (DOEA) Interim Sec-
retary Susan Tucker recently
praised the success of the Sun-
shine for Seniors program's first
year of operation. The report
released by the department
shows clients who received pre-
scription assistance from Sun-
shine for Seniors volunteer
counselors have already saved
an estimated $464,070 in the
last 12 months. The estimated
savings to elders is more than
2.5 times the amount of the pro-
gram's general revenue budget.
"Today's report shows our
commitment to providing as-
sistance to seniors who are
seeking help with their pre-
scription drug costs," said In-
terim Secretary Tucker. "I con-
gratulate the staff and
volunteers who have been
working diligently to help
Florida's elders for their efforts
and dedication to a very impor-
tant cause. We are making a
difference in the lives of seniors
and their caregivers, which by
far, makes this program a suc-
cessful program."
According to the report re-
leased in early January:
'Sunshine for Seniors
program budget for State
Fiscal Year 04-05 is
$185,000
3,572 clients were served
More than 30,000 pro-
gram brochures and post-
ers were distributed
More than 200 commu-
nity outreach presenta-
tions were performed
More than 250 volunteer
counselors were trained
to provide assistance to
A"' rnd mbre &tair$460;000
in prescription cost sav-
ings were attained for
Florida's elders.
The Sunshine for Seniors
program is administered
through the SHINE (Serving
Health Insurance Needs of Eld-
ers) program of the Department
of Elder Affairs. It was created
to assist low-income elders with
obtaining prescription drugs
from manufacturers' pharma-
ceutical assistance programs.
Clients receive prescription
counseling services through
onsite counseling centers, in-
formation.and referral hotlines,
the elder helpline, health fairs,
and through local outreach pres-
entations and events, such as
televised phone banks. All Sun-
shine for Seniors services are
provided to elders and their
caregivers free of charge.
A representative for SHINE
will be at the Trenton Library
on Monday, February 28th from
10:30 a.m. until noon to help
those needing to apply for as-
sistance.

SFCC Police
Searching For
Carjacker
Santa Fe Community College
Police are looking for a man
who attempted to carjack a fe-
male student's vehicle on the
Northwest Campus recently. At
approximately 9:20 a.m. on Fri-
day morning, a student entered
her parked car in Lot 20, just
east of the campus bookstore
near NW 83rd Street when she
was approached by a black
male.
The suspect approached the
driver's side of the car, a Mer-
cedes, and asked the victim for


the time. He then told her she
had a flat tire on the left rear of
her vehicle, at which point, she
exited the vehicle. He then
brushed past her and attempted
to put the car in gear.
Uniformed SFCC Police Of-
ficer Bill Ash observed what he
thought was a heated discussion
between the two parties and ap-,
proached the scene in his
marked car. He was within ten
feet of the scene when the sus-
pect exited the vehicle and ran'
northeast from the campus to-
ward the Santa.Fe Oaks apart-


Senator Rod Smith
Leads By Example
To Eliminate Silent
Killer
Thousands of people die from
embarrassment each year and
the American Cancer Society
wants it to stop.
Senator Rod Smith underwent
colon cancer testing this month
in an effort to take the mystery
and fear out of this vitally im-
portant process.
.The Senator had a colono-
scopy, the type of procedure
made famous by Today Show
host Katie Couric in 2000.
"Like a lot of other people my
age, I was reluctant to schedule
the procedure. In fact, I think
my wife made the appointment
and I'm glad she did." said
Smith. "I guess I didn't need to
wait so long because the test is
actually no problem at all."
Today, colon cancer is the
third leading cause of cancer
death in the United States.
Early stages of colon cancer
usually show no symptoms,
meaning that regular testing is
imperative to catching the dis-

ment complex at 8203 NW 31st
Avenue. The suspect was last
seen entering the fenced area of
the complex. A search with ca-
nines is being conducted. The
victim in the incident was not
injured. The suspect is described
as a black male, approximately
19 years old, 6' to 6'1," weigh-
ing about 175-180 pounds with
a thin build. He was clean-
shaven and was wearing a black
stocking cap, black sweatshirt,
dark pair of shorts with a verti-

ease before it becomes deadly.
If caught early, colon cancer has
a 90 percent survival rate. Oth-
erwise, that rate plummets to
nine percent.
The American Cancer Society
says, "At least half the people
we lose to colon cancer could
have been saved. It's a cancer
that shouldn't be killing as
many people as it does."
Smith says he understands
people's reluctance to be
screened. "I know that the idea
of the screening makes people
uncomfortable. It's also embar-
rassing, but remember that years
ago people were embarrassed by
talk of screening for breast can-
cer and prostrate cancer. We
learned that early screening for
those diseases pays off by sav-
ing lives. It's time that we learn
that the same thing is true for
colon cancer. I want to help the
American Cancer Society talk
about colon cancer because we
can save lives."
Senator Smith can say from
experience that when it comes
to testing, there's nothing to
fear. Patients are anesthetized
while a slender, flexible, hol-
low, lighted tube is eased inside
the colon. A tiny video camera
sends images back to a TV
monitor where the physician can
get a clear picture of any polyps
or other irregularities.
The exam itself only takes
about 30 minutes. When you
wake up, there's no pain or
soreness. The preceding day's
preparations, which involved a
special liquid diet and the in-
gestion of very strong laxatives
to clean out the entire digestive
system, took the most commit-
ment. The American Cancer
Society recommends that both

LCCC Celebrates
Nursing Students'
Week
By Abraham Pallas, Ph.D.,
Chairperson, Allied Health
Programs at Lake City
Community College
Before you can be a nurse,
you've got to be a student, and
at Lake City Community Col-
lege, student nurses are a major
part of campus life. With 170
students enrolled in one of the
college's three nursing pro-
grams, and over 300 more who
indicate that they are interested
in majoring in one of the pro-
]ar.gest.siud nabc~on.campus.,
These students, and others na-
tionwide, will be celebrating
Nursing Students Week during
the week of February 20t
through 26h. This year's theme,
"The Path to Professionalism,"
refers to both the educational
path and the professional path of
advocacy and involvement in
the pre-professional organiza-
tion.
The Lake City Community
College Student Nurses Asso-
ciation (SNA), as part of both
the Florida Nursing Students
Association (FNSA) and the
National Student Nurses Asso-
ciation (NSNA), is the pre-
professional organization for lo-
cal nursing students. The Flor-
ida NSA is the largest state or-
ganization within the national
organization. With over 3,000
members, it has been a leader as


an organization that provides
leadership education and expe-
rience to hundreds of Florida's
nursing students. It hosts an
annual student convention,
which has one of the greatest
student turnouts around' the
country. This year over 1,500
persons attended, coming to
participate in educational focus
sessions, a House of Delegates
assembly, and other activities.
FNSA will be celebrating its
50th anniversary this year.
According to Amanda Collins
Gray, the Lake City Community
College Student Nurses Asso-
ciation Chapter President, the
organization has multiple pur-
poses. "We want students to
have an opportunity to expand
their vision, to become well-
rounded," she said. "We do
things in the community, and
we develop contacts both in
Florida, through the Florida as-
sociation, and nationally. We
also gain confidence in talking
with other students, on the same
level, at events like the annual
convention."
Henrietta Pope, professor of
nursing at the college and fac-
ulty advisor to the college's
SNA chapter, says that mem-
bers of the organization are ac-
tive both on campus and in the
community. They have offered
blood pressure screenings, par-
ticipated in Fourth of July ac-
tivities for youth held at the
Northeast Florida State Hospital
in Macclenny, and have raised
money to host holiday parties
and provide gifts to preschool
children at Suwannee River 4Cs
and Happy House. They also
host an annual retired nurses'
luncheon each year, an event
which helps former nurses
maintain ties within the profes-
sion. One of the next major
projects in which the SNA will
participate is a 5K walk/run for
Cystic Fibrosis, to be held on
the LCCC campus on April 23rd.
The college also recognizes
the importance of the organiza-
tion. Beginning in 2006, candi-
dates for admission to the asso-
ciate degree nursing program
will be required to provide evi-
dence of involvement in the
healthcare field. Among the
ways in which this can be done
is to actively participate in the
Lake City SNA.
,,,,',By,,making this, available ,to
ftRPrIMtb \et adtfNt-WeI
program, we areiencourSging
'those students to learn more
about the field to which they as-
pire," said Robbie Carson, co-
ordinator of nursing programs at
the college. "They can see the
importance of their prerequisite
courses, and develop relation-
ships with others in the profes-
sion."
Abraham .Pallas, Ph.D.,
Chairperson Allied Health pro-
grams at the college, agrees
with this assessment. "We want
our graduates to be more than
well-educated clinicians. We
want them to be well-rounded,
contributing members of the
community. By taking the first
steps, being part of an organiza-
tion that is dedicated to profes-
sional growth and community
service, our students are work-
ing to achieve these goals."
Lake City Community Col-
lege offers three programs in the
nursing field. The ASDN pro-
gram in nursing, a two-year
program, leads to the associate
in science degree in nursing,
with graduates being eligible to
become registered nurses. The
college also offers a one-year
Practical Nursing certificate
program, with graduates eligible
to become licensed practical
nurses, and a one-semester Pa-
tient Care Assistant certificate
program, with graduates eligible
to become Certified Nursing
.Assistants as well as Patient
Care Assistants. The college
also has a bridge program for
practical nurses seeking to earn
their associate degree in nurs-
ing.
Prospective members are en-
couraged to find out more about
the nursing organizations by
going to the national Web site,
http://www.nsna.org, or the
Florida Web site,
http://con.ufl.edu/fnsa/. And
why do students get involved in
the organization? LCCC SNA


President Gray sums it up sim-
ply. "It's in our spirit. We're
going to be nurses. We want to
help people."
For local information about
LCCC's nursing programs, call

ing, at 754-4319 or e-mail at

Cough, Colds And
Congestion: Poison
Center Urges
Caution In Use Of
Over The Counter
Medications
Over the counter remedies,
readily available on grocery and
pharmacy shelves, are pur-
chased without a doctor's pre-
scription. The Florida Poison
Information Center Jackson-
ville would like to remind the
public to use the same precau-
tions with over the counter
medications as they do with
their prescription medications.
Debra Forrest, RN, Senior
Specialist for the Florida Poison
Information Center Jackson-
ville, states "As with prescrip-
tion medications, dosing errors
also occur with over the counter
products, and are often due to
taking or being given a medica-
tion dose twice. In fact, last
year, the Florida Poison Infor-
mation Center Jacksonville
received over 158 calls attrib-
uted to this error." Mrs. Forrest,
RN, advises parents and care-
takers to establish a routine for
taking medications, and com-
,municate with all family mem-
bers to ensure that a medication
dose is not taken or given
twice."
Commonly used over the
counter products, like pain re-
lievers and cough medicines,
can be harmful if misused or
abused. The 2003 Annual Re-
port of the American Associa-
tion of Poison Control Centers
lists analgesics (pain relievers),
cold and cough medications
among the top substances in-
volved in human poisoning ex-
posures.
The Florida Poison Informa-
tion Center Jacksonville, of-
fers the following guidelines for
over-the-counter medication
safety:
Read the medication la-
bel before each use; fol-/
low directions precisely.
If you do not understand
the instructions, call the
product information
phone number on the la-
bel-or contact your phar-
macist or physician.
Follow the recommended
dose; do not exceed the
a. 'Maxiium, daily dose
.stated on.the label.. ;,.,
Be careful when taking
more than one over the
counter medication.
Medications may contain
the same or similar active
ingredients which when
added together may ex-
ceed the maximum safe
dosage.
Some over the counter
products should not be
mixed with prescription
medications. Always
speak with your pharma-
cist or physician before
taking more than one
prescription medication
or over the counter medi-
cine.
Keep all medications, in-
cluding over the counter
products out of children's
reach, locked up and out
of sight. Small amounts
of some adult medica-
tions can be harmful or
life threatening to a child.
Never call medication
candy.
Do not let small children
see you take medication.
Keep all medications and
household chemicals in
containers fitted with
safety caps.
Always turn on the light
prior to taking any medi-
cation.
If you wear eyeglasses,
put them on before taking
any medication.
Never take medications
out of their original con-
tainers.
Be aware of medications
or other household prod-
ucts that look like candy
or food.
Post the Poison Informa-
tion Center's emergency
hot-line phone number
(1-800-222-1222), near


the phone.
If you or anyone in your
household takes the wrong kind
of medication or the wrong
dose, call the Poison Informa-
tion Center, toll-free 24 hours a
day, at 1-800-222-1222
(Voice/TDD). The healthcare
professionals at the center will
immediately respond to poison
emergencies and answer poison
related questions about medica-
tions, and other potentially dan-
gerous substances.

tion Center Jacksonville is a

fourteen days of receipt of such no-
'tice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.
S The petitioner shall mail a copy


of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition or request for en-
largement of time within fourteen
days of receipt of notice shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's
right- to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent interven-
tion (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the

tative, if any; the Depart-

well as the rules and statutes

(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to for-
mulate final agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be
different from the position taken by
it in this notice. Persons whose
substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to peti-
tion to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above..
In addition to requesting an ad-

Gilchrist Commission
Negotiates Fee With
Florida Rock
Involving Gas Line
Extension
(Continued from Page One)
board that Florida Rock and the
consulting group were
reviewing alternative routes for
the gas line to come into
Alachua County and connect to
the concrete plant near
Newberry.
The Commission Chairman
.opened the discussion of the gas
line extension to the public.
"All I want you guys to look
at is the money, $72,000 is the
deal of the century," explained
Bruce Thompson, a resident of
the Waccasassa community.
Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas asked if the fee could
be based so that Gilchrist
County would receive a user's
fee established on the amount of
gas that is transferred through
the line. McPherson explained
that this too could be a
consideration.
Charles Scott, a resident
living along the proposed
corridor pointed out since the
applicant is Florida Rock, why
can't they widen CR-232 by
four feet in their installation of
the pipeline. This road is
heavily traveled and the need is
great, he explained.
"Why can't Florida Rock tie

into the natural gas pipeline that
currently provides natural gas to
Gainesville Regional Utility
since they too are in Alachua
County," Bruce Brown asked.
He explained if the GRU
connection was not a
possibility, the Florida Rock
could negotiate with the City of
Alachua in connecting to their
natural gas feed, Brown added.
Gary Hale asked what was
the life expectancy of the gas
line.


Greg Tilden explained that
the life expectancy of the gas
line is fifty years.
Commissioner Gentry asked
if the business deal involving
the pipeline goes bad and
Florida Rock stops using natural
gas, what would h pen to the
.gas line? /
Tilden. explained that the
county would then get the gas
line. He went on to say that the
applicant can go somewhere
else if the county does not want


to be involved in the gas line
extension.
"I can't see where this gas
line benefits the health, safety
and welfare of the residents of
Gilchrist County," explained
Commissioner Randy Durden.
He then requested the county
charge, a $10,000 fee for
engineering to be paid up front
plus a $12,000 fee per year with
a 1.5% increase annually be
included in the user's fee.
Durden then read a list of

twelve conditions recommended
for consideration by county
engineer Lee Mills. Durden then
put the recommendations in the
form of a motion to be
considered as a part of the
negotiations involving the gas
line extension user's fee.

Commissioner Durden ~iskd
Greg Tilden if he wanted to
discuss the conditions he spoke
of with the board at this time.
Tilden explained that he would
negotiate the proposed fee with
the county attorney at a later
time.
Commissioner Durden
resented his motion to include
that the County Commission
would be involVed in the final
negotiations with the applicant's
consultant. The board agreed
and voted 5-0 in support of the
action.

completes their investigation.
Levy County Sheriff's De-
partment Captain Chuck Bastak
said on Monday, "We expect
the investigation to be complete
in the next couple of days."
Captain Bastak went on to say
that everything so far developed
by FDLE shows that the depu-
ties took appropriate action. He
went on to say that once the in-
vestigation is complete, the re-
sults will be turned over to the
State Attorney's office. At that
time a decision will be made if
the incident will be reviewed by
the Grand Jury or not.
Kerry Reynolds has been em-
ployed by the Sheriff's Office
since April of 2003 and Danny
Turner has been employed since
February of 1995.
Arthur's widow, Susan Ar-
thur, a native of New York, and
her husband lived in the Caroli-
nas until they moved to Florida
in 1998. They first lived in
Gainesville, then moved to the
Bronson area. Arthur was a na-
tive of Sumter, South Carolina.
