-UVifnIy: "H.0 Bronson Man, High Springs Bikers Killed In
'if A Witness In Sunday Afternoon Traffic

IFedel Trial Accident North Of Chiefland
Is Missing


James Lappe of Bronson, who
has been missing since October
6, 2004, is a witness in a federal
trial and is being sought to
participate in the trial.

Mr. Lappe was last seen
driving a tan 1985 GMC
conversion van, Florida license
tag G65 4JW. He is described as
6' 0" tall, 150 pounds, date of
birth 6/27/45.
Anyone having information
on Mr. Lappe's whereabouts is
strongly encouraged to call the
Levy County Sheriff's
Department at (352) 486-5111.


The Florida Highway Patrol
reported that two adults riding
on a 2005 Harley Davidson
motorcycle were killed Sunday
afternoon when they crashed
into a 2004 Ford that was mak-
ing a "U" turn on US 129, three
miles north of Chiefland.
Robert Douglas, 57, of High
Springs, and Diane A. Perez,
55, also of High Springs, were
pronounced dead at the scene by
Levy County Emergency Medi-
cal Services after they were both
ejected from the motorcycle
they were riding.
Bill J. Lockwood, 87, of Al-
buquerque, New Mexico, was


'driving a 2004 Ford, traveling
northbound' in front of the
Harley Davidson driven by
Robert Douglas. Diane A.
Perez was a passenger on the
motorcycle at the time of the
accident. Lockwood was re-
ported to have pulled off the
edge of the shoulder of US 129
and began to make a U-turn
when he failed to see the on-
coming traffic. Douglas was
reported to have veered to the
left in an attempt to miss the
truck, but was unable to, and in-
stead slammed into the front left
side of the truck as the truck
was across the northbound lane


of US 129. Upon impact, the
motorcycle rotated counter
clockwise and came to rest fac-
ing south in the southbound lane
of US 129. The Ford left the
roadway on the west shoulder
and came to rest facing north-
west. The driver and passenger
of the motorcycle were ejected
from the vehicle.
The driver of the Ford was
not reported to have sustained
injury in this accident.
Corporal Virgil P. Sandlin
and Corporal John Gourley are
conducting the investigation in
this accident. Charges involv-
ing this accident are pending the
investigation being finalized.

Gilchrist County Continues To Negotiate

Gas Line Extension With Florida Rock


Ily John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission was brought up-to-
date by County Attorney John
McPbers. i on Monday, March
7th involving a natural gas
pipeline extension. In the first
regular monthly meeting the
board discussed the continued
negotiations of the proposed
four-inch natural gas pipeline
along CR-232 east to the
Alachua County line.
The commission, in a
February meeting, requested
that their attorney Mr.
McPherson draft general
conditions to be used for the
guidelines of the Right-of-Way
Permit. The attorney presented
the board with 24 General
Conditions and eight Special
Conditions to be reviewed for
consideration by the board for
approval. The attorney also


submitted a copy of these
guidelines to Greg Tilden, a
representative of Golden Energy
Services, the consulting group
that is representing Florida
Rockfinvolving the Right-of-
Way Use Permit.
The consulting firm
submitted a revised draft of
conditions that they want the
county commission to consider
regarding the proposed Right-
of-Way Permit.
The board took action to
approve four of six proposed
conditions submitted to
McPherson from Greg Tilden.
These conditions are as follows:
1. We can limit the use to a
single four-inch pipe and but
we must have the ability to
deliver gas to other users.
2. We need a term for which
the pipe will be able to
remain in place without


being moved at our expense.
The board agreed the county
would pay the cost of
moving the pipe within the
first 20 years after
construction is completed.
After that time period
Florida Rock would pay the
cost of moving the line.
3.The active construction site
will be several miles long
from surveying crew to the
final restoration. The permit
will be located in one spot
which will most likely be
some distance from where
other work is occurring.
4.The cost of the inspection
needs to be specified and
should be included in the fee
Florida Rock is paying for
the permit. This is what'.
$10,000 is covering.
Of the guidelines proposed
by Florida Rock, these two


proposals were denied by the
board of commissioners.
Florida Rock requested a
provision that the rental fee be
eliminated if they add
customers in Gilchrist County
and become a regulated utility.
Florida Rock was seeking a
provision that the rental fee of
$12,000 a year plus 1.5 percent
increase annually would be paid
in lieu of ad valorum property
taxes in Gilchrist County.
A motion by Commissioner
Tommy Langford was made to
approve conditions one to four
and deny conditions five and
six. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas. gave a second to the
motion and the board voted 5-0
in favor of the motion.
Mr. McPherson told the
board that he would be back in
touch with the consultant
representing Florida Rock
involving the board's action.

Grand Jury

Clears Levy
Deputies In

Shooting
By Cindy-Jo Ayers
Two Levy County deputies
were cleared by the Grand Jury
in a case where a Levy County
man was shot and killed during
an arrest recently. The Grand
Jury met on Monday, March 14.
STheir findings in the case were
that the two officers had acted
appropriately. The officers
involved were Deputy Kerry
Runnels and Sergeant Danny
Turner.
The incident occurred on
February 17, 2005 in a
neighborhood near Bronson.
The officers were attempting to
arrest Matthew Lee Arthur, 44,
when Mr. Arthur pulled out a
,22 rifle from his vehicle. Once
Deputy Runnels saw the
weapon he discharged his
weapon three times. The first
shot hit the doorframe of the
vehicle breaking the glass. The
next two shots hit Arthur under
the arm entering his chest. Mr.
Arthur was pronounced dead at
the scene. The shooting
occurred after a somewhat
extended struggle where Arthur
was tazed and escaped twice
from the officers.
Both officers were put on
paid leave until the Florida
Department of Law
Enforcement could complete a
through investigation. Both
officers have returned to work at
the Levy County Sheriff's
Office.


Jo Buckles Displays Compassion

And Is Selected Character

Council Personality Of The

Month


By Geneva Cornwell
This personality for the
month of March uses a slogan
from Zig Ziglar seminars, which
has helped her get where she is
today. The slogan? "You will
get where you want if you help
other people to get where they
need to be."
Mrs. Jo Buckles is a regis-
tered dietician and made her
way up the ladder of success by
practicing COMPASSION to-
ward others. She is presently
the administrator of Ayers
Health and Rehabilitation Cen-
ter in Trenton, Florida. She
readily admits her belief that
"one person can make a differ-
ence and if you're not that per-
son, then you can steer someone
to the right person so the indi-
vidual's life will be improved."
In 1982, while attending the
University of Florida, Mrs.
Buckles completed her intern-
ship right in the Ayers' kitchen.
From there she moved into con-
sultation work and then in Oc-
tober 1989 she was given the
position she holds today in
overseeing the work of 145 em-
ployees. She lives in Gilchrist
County with her husband, Ste-
yen, and two sons, Anderson,
who attends Bell High School,
and Schiefer, who attends
Trenton Middle School.
Jo says, "We all have busy


Jo Buckles


lives and it's essential that we
make ourselves stop and (show
COMPASSION) to someone
else and both people will be re-
warded." This sensitive lady
believes that it's a must to "be a
good listener!" She gave an ex-
ample of her work in the Rotary
Club as a "cheerleader," an As-
sistant Governor for the local
district. In showifig
COMPASSION, "in always
looking for the best in people
and making them aware of it," is
the key to success in life, as far
as Jo is concerned. In demon-
strating COMPASSION toward
others, Mrs. Buckles feels that a'
friend then can be won for a
lifetime.


As an administrator, Jo re-
cently initiated the use of the
monthly Corporate "Character
Bulletin" published by the In-
stitute of Character Cities. The
"bulletin" is used in conjunction
with a monthly staff meeting to
allow employees to enhance
personal character growth and
to assist the improvement of
character with fellow peers.
Jo Buckles is one of many in
our beloved county who are
proving from day-to-day that "a
County of Character is a
County that Cares."


Gatornationals Are

By: Skoal Racing Funny Car
Driver Tommy Johnson, Jr.
The NHRA visits Gainesville
Raceway this weekend and I
have never been so eager to get
out on the track. It's no secret
that the Skoal Racing team
struggled a bit last year, how-
ever, I had a good feeling com-
ing into 2005 with a new slate
and it proved to be justified as
we won the season-opening race
in Pomona, California. As we
head into Gatornationals this

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Fishing on the Gulf of
Mexico this past week was both
confusing and rewarding.
Confusing because the tides and
the sea conditions were both
good, but the weather of 370 at
7:00 a.m. had a bite to it. The
trip was exciting as the three of
us caught three amberjack
which weighed almost 100
pounds. The target species of
grouper was a challenge to say
the least.
When we left McGriff
Channel before 7:00 a.m.
Thursday, the tide was running
out and it was extremely low.
As we passed by the outside bar
in the channel, I began to trim
my motor up in hopes of being
able to run out the channel
without being caught. As we
reached the third marker from
the end, I felt the motor begin to
run aground, we were lucky that
our speed kept us from being
caught. If we had waited until
8:30 a.m. when the tide was
forecast to be low, we would
have never gotten out of the
channel.
i W"e -searched for water with
temperatures abo'e 600 before
4we:began to wet our trolling
baits. We should have searched


for temperatures above 65,
because we had little to no
success with the trolling baits.
We came across some of the
best structure on the Big Bend
and stopped to exercise our
muscles and see just how many
amberjack we could catch. The
excitement, was fast as we
caught our three keeper fish in
less than 30 minutes. I also
boxed a small, but keeper size
gag grouper at that stop.
As the weather warmed just
after noon, we decided to take
our chances and move on to
some structure in deeper water.
We fished and caught black
fish, pink mouth and some
smaller amberjack, but we were
unable to catch anymore keeper
size grouper.
I have talked with several
other fishermen who have much
more experience that I on
catching grouper offshore in
cold water conditions. It just
seems that when the weather is
cold, the grouper bite is often
tough unless you are on the fish
with the right bait when they
begin to bite.


Some Christians journey
barefoot, others with designer
shoes. The. truth is, it's c notth
.. shoes on the feet that count, .but
the feet in the shoes.

A Letter To
The Editor
"One Nation Under God"
We must not allow the sen-
tence "One Nation Under God"
to be removed from our Pledge
of Allegiance to the American
flag.
This nation is great because
our founding fathers acknowl-
edged there is "A Creator"
when they wrote these inspiring
words of truth, "We hold these
truths to be self-evident, that all
men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator
with unalienable rights, that
among these are life, liberty and
the pursuit of happiness".
These same 56 men who af-
firmed at the beginning of our
founding document also af-
firmed these words at the end of
the same. "For the support of
this declaration with firm reli-
.ance on the protection of Divine
Providence, we mutually pledge
to each other our lives, our for-
tunes and our sacred honor."
Just. look to the past since we
have allowed God to be taken
from our schools. Instead of the
Ten Commandments (correction
and character), they have been
replaced with three other "C"s
such as condoms, confusion and
Columbine.
It is time that we Christians
stand together as the 56 signers
of the Declaration of Independ-
ence did when they pledged to
each other their lives, their for-
tunes and there sacred honor. It
is the right course of action -
Proverbs 14:34: "Righteousness
exalteth a nation but sin is a re-
proach to any people.

A Letter To
The Editor
Dear John,
As I read the Gilchrist County
Journal this week, I saw the ar-
ticle that covered the Alumni
Baseball Game and noted that a
particular fact was reported in-
correctly. Although it was nice
to be mistaken for having, hit a
home run to win a ballgame, I
can' take credit for something
that didn't happen. 'I didn't
come close to hitting a ball out
of the infield much less out of
the park. I did score the game
iining rih ho\\ever to put the
Old Micn" up on the youngsters
6 to 5. The game was a lot of
fun; it was great to see some of
the folks I hadn't seen in a while
and to play the game one more
time. It was also nice to have
Coach Tommy Malloy with us
in the dugout and have him
coaching us up again.
Thanks again to both the cur-


rent and former coaches and
players of THS, organizers of
the event and to the fans that
braved the cool temperatures
and came out to support the
baseball program at THS.
Respectfully,
Robbie "Not a Slugger"

Gatornationals Are

(Continued from Page One)
standing and hope to move up.
The win at Pomona meant a
lot to everyone on the Skoal
Racing team, especially our
team owner, the legendary Don
"The Snake" Prudhomme, be-
cause it gave him his 50h career
win as an owner. Add that to
the 49 he earned as a driver and
it puts him at 99 total wins --
just one shy of the 100-win
milestone that only two active
drivers have reached (John
Force and Warren Johnson).
We're hoping to help him reach
that mark sooner than later and
there'd be no better time than
this weekend at one of the
NHRA's biggest races.
Gatornationals has always
been known for two things:
Fast times and a great crowd
atmosphere. Gainesville Race-
way was the site of the first-ever
260-, 270- and 300 mph Top
Fuel runs and in 2000, eight of
ten national records were set in
the professional classes. Per-
haps it's that potential for his-
tory to be made each year that
helps drive the tens of thou-
sands of fans to the track each
day of Gatornationals race
weekend.
Hopefully history will be
made this weekend, too. I've
yet to win at Gainesville Race-
way during my professional ca-
reer and no time would be better
than this weekend to give Snake
his 100th career win. There
should be a lot of fast times
turned in this weekend and I
fully expect the Skoal Racing
Blue Monte Carlo to be right
there near the top.

Boating Accident
Claims Life Of
Callahan Man
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) is investigating a.boat-
ing accident that occurred Sun-
day on the St. Johns River,
claiming the life of a Callahan
resident.
Steven Morris, 53, was pro-
nounced dead at the Baptist
Medical Center, Beaches
Branch, after being pulled from
the i^ater Sunday rhorning
The operator, James Ryals,
40, and another occupant, Mi-,
chael Burns, 40, both from'
Callahan, were not injured.
The three were fishing in their
vessel, a 1972 18' Mako, which
was anchored adjacent to the
south jetty of the St. Johns
River. A wave came over the
transom. A second wave
swamped the vessel and it sank,
according to FWC investigators.
Burns swam to the jetty rocks
and was rescued by the U.S.
Coast Guard. Ryals grabbed a
seat cushion and was rescued by
another fisherman. Morris
floated away from the vessel
toward the ocean. He was
pulled from the water and trans-
ported to the medical center.
The investigation is continu-
ing, according to the FWC.


WhatThe Bible Says About Peter
(Kent Heaton)


The prophet Isaiah said of the Lord, "Come
now, and let us reason together" (Isaiah 1:18).
This spirit of reasoning should always be among
those who seek truth and understanding of the
word of God. I appreciate the "Letter to the Edi-
tor" [March 10, 2005] and the spirit of reasoning
together the things of eternal importance. The
people of Berea did not receive the teachings of
the apostles without an investigation (Acts
17:11). We must all have that same zeal.
Mrs. Riordan addressed an article written about
Jesus' statement of building His church. Let us
reason together what similarities and differences
there are in this subject. In paragraph two, we
must point out the quotation of Matthew 16 is in-
correct. The quote given: "You are Peter, the
Rock, and on this Rock I will build my Church"
is not the correct rendition of scripture. The Holy
Spirit did not add the phrase, "the Rock" after
Peter's name. The accurate reading should be,
"thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build
my church" (Matthew 16:18). The rock Jesus is
referring to is not Peter but the confession Peter
made that Jesus was the son of God. This is what
Jesus built His church upon (1 Corinthians 3:11;
Ephesians 2:19-22).
The implication is made that "Peter is to be the
head of Christ's church on earth. Peter was the
first 'Pope, and the other apostles were the first
bishops. Every pope, bishop, and priest down
through the centuries can trace his authority in
a direct line from Peter, the one on whom Christ
'built the Church.'" The same Peter of which
Mrs. Riordan speaks wrote in his first epistle, "If
any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of
God" (1 Peter 4:11). There are no references
from the Bible that support her claims. I assume
the reason she put Pope in italics is because she
also recognizes that the title is never found in
God's word. If Christ wanted men to take on the
title of "Pope, why is it left out of the Bible? The
answer is found in Matthew 23:9 and Revelation
22:18-19.
What does the Bible teach about Peter? Mat-


thew tells us that Peter was a married man. "And
when Jesus was come into Peter's house, he saw
his wife's mother laid, and sick of a fever" (Mat-
thew 8:14). We also find that Peter had children. In
1 Peter 5:1 Peter refers to himself as a "fellow eld-
er." He is writing to elders that Paul describes in
Titus 1:5-9. Paul tells Titus the reason he left him
in Crete was to appoint elders and gives the quali-
ties of these men who would be ELDERS or BISH-
OPS. In verse 5, Paul refers to these men as ELD-
ERS and calls them BISHOPS in verse 7. An elder
and a bishop are one in the same person accord-
ing to the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:20-21). In the list
of qualities found in Titus 1 (and also 1 Timothy
3), an elder or bishop must have children! Peter
was married and had children according to the
Bible.
Consider the passage of 1 Peter 5 again. Peter
only refers to himself as a "fellow elder" and never
refers to himself in any role such as the head of the
church. There are three passages in the Bible that
use the words "head" and "church" together and
Peter is never mentioned in any of the three (Ephe-
sians 1:22; 5:23; Colossians 1:18). If Peter Was the
head of the church on earth, why did he never say
he was? How could Paul rebuke him if he took that
role (see Galatians 2:11-21)? The Bible says Christ
is the only head and no man on earth can take that
role.
Mrs. Riordan asks: "How old is the Church of
Christ denomination? When was it begun, and by
whom?" The answer is in the Bible. Romans 16:16
says, "The churches of Christ salute you." Does
the Bible mention the Roman Catholic Church by
name? An honest examination of scripture will find
it missing. The church of Christ began in Acts 2
and has continued until this day. It was begun by
Jesus Christ who is the ONLY head. Its pattern of
authority, worship, teaching and doctrine are found
in the Bible not the "historical records of the
church." When we reason together, let us give
book, chapter and verse. Next week we will study
what the Bible teaches about Bishops. Write to us
with your questions and comments.

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
The book I reviewed this
week for the beginning reader
was The Best Easter Hunt Ever,
by John Speirs. Five children
were going on an Easter egg
hunt. They hunt eggs in the
garden, the country, and
throughout the village. As you
read the book you are given an
opportunity to find the eggs too.
This is a sample of the selection
of books Bell Library has about
Easter that you may enjoy.
Have'you ever wondered how
things work? The junior age
book I read is entitled How
Things Work. It explain what
holds a plane in the sky. It also
tells us how glass bottles are
made, what force pulls the roller
coaster along. These are just a
few subjects discussed.
The adult novel I read was
Late Bloomer, written by. Fern
Michaels. A murder occurred
about 15 years before and one
girl was accused of causing the
death of her friend. Now all the
characters are grown up and the
friends that moved away are
coming home. See if you can
solve the mystery and come to
the same decision as the author.
Remember we are still look-
ing for overdue books. If you
have a book you have kept for a
long time no one else can enjoy
it. Many of you are cooperating
with us and this is greatly ap-
preciated. Thank you!

Mrs. Geneva Cornwell enjoys the kids who bounce and
roll in the Spongebob Bounce at the American Legion
Family Fun Day.


American Legion
Family Day
Highlights
The blessingswere abounding
as the Legionnaires of Post 91
banded together to put on the
best rip-roarin' "Spring Fair and
Family Fun Day" they had ever
had. The sky was blue! It was a
warm, sunny day! Parents, as.
well as grandparents, came with
kids to give them 'a chance to
get their faces painted by
"uLuu" the clown and laugh at
the silly balloon shapes which
her husband "BooBoo" made.
Many of the kids, and "adult"
kids, too, took a ride in one of
Engineer Mike's train cars on
the "Little Smokey Express."
Yes, Saturday, March 12th
was a fine day! Chefs Dr. Bob
and Mr. Cecil (both members of
the Post).spent their time greet-
ing customers who purchased
their wonderful 100'percent
pure beef hamburgers, with de-
licious trimmings, like roasted
tomato slices and grilled onions


marinated in root beer. Yum!
The cookies and muffins sold at
the "Bake Sale" table were
mouth-watering. Many of the
"lunch" buyers took advantage
of the warm day by having a
"picnic" right there on the
grounds, and enjoying every
minute of it.
The "Sponge Bob Bounce"
made a great hit with the kids
who like jumping and rolling
'around. And the "Bob Ball
.Toss" gave everyone who
played a prize. Even Mr. Charlie
and Mr. Bob, who manned the
.booths, were observed chewing
bubble gum and sucking on
tootsie-roll pops!
Carol Darkins of "Carol's
Music Ministry" shared many
delightful and toe-tapping Gos-
pel music songs, There was
even time for a sing-a-long.
Many people who attended the
affair invited Carol to sing at
other places. She also enjoyed,
as everyone else did, the selec-
tion of goods at the indoor Flea
Market, held inside the Post
building.

as a 50/50 drawing towards the
end of the day's festivities.
Then there came clean-up
time. Part of planning a function
and then having fun is the clean-
up. About 14 people joined in to
volunteer in helping to get
things straightened up and put
back in order. Yes, the day was
filled with blessings with expe-
riencing new friendships and
lots of laughter. If you didn't
attend, you missed a good thing!'

Character Trait For
The Month Of
March:
"COMPASSION"
By Geneva Corwell
Even ir the animal world there
is a display of COMPASSION,
as, described in the following:
"Unable to keep up with the
herd, sick or injured zebra fall
prey to predators. However,
rather than leaving weak
members behind, the whole
herd slows down enough to
allow the weak to remain with
the herd." But in a fast-paced
society, children are prone to
overlook those in trouble or
assume that someone else will
stop to ,help, so by teaching
them the five "I Will's" chil-
dren learn to display'
COMPASSION when needs
arise. I will stop to help; listen
when others want to talk; give

in need; comfort others with-
out regard to race, gender,
faith, age or nationality.
COMPASSION is. investing
whatever is necessary to heal
the hurts of others. The oppo-
site of COMPASSION is indif-
ference. COMPASSION's
definition is "suffering with
another; hence, sympathy; sor-
row for the misfortunes or
miseries of another with a de-
sire to help; pity and commis-
eration."
COMPASSION is a cqoit-
bioatioj. oft.ne .lO2[ n,, W .m4.
, meaning-'' v.hi' a idheywold
passio (or pati) meaning "to
bear or suffer." The term
COMPASSION means liter-
ally to "suffer with" those who
are hurting. A kind word, a
thoughtful gift, a caring touch,
or a virtuous act of service are
all ways to effectively enter
into and share the burdens of
others.
COMPASSION is like a
doctor's care. It invests in the
healing process, but it cannot
actually heal. It comforts, as-
sists, and encourages a hurting
friend, but long-term relief is
his or her own responsibility.
Just as not everyone responds
properly to a doctor's care, not
everyone responds, kindly to
COMPASSION. Some will-
ingly receive help, and some
do not. Some respond with
carelessness or bitterness.
Some respond with patience.
and cooperation. The latter
frequently experience prompt
and effective healing while the
former see their wounds fester
and grow.
COMPASSION is helping
others heal their hurts. Sym-
pathy is seeing someone's
pain. Empathy is feeling
someone's. pain.
COMPASSION is relieving
someone's pain. Compassion-
ate leadership sees every need
as important.: It's as the fol-
Slowing words relate: "Time is
a treasure. The richer the in-
vestment, the richer the out-
come. The earlier the invest-
ment, the greater the


dividend." (Anonymous)
With each passing year, as
the residents of Gilchrist
County grow in relationship to
each other and purpose to be
sensitive to others' needs,
more and more
COMPASSION is observed
while each grows in character,
young and old alike, for in
doing so, we of Gilchrist
County demonstrate that a
County of Character is a
County that Cares."

The Family Fun Day and Flea Market finally came together on
Saturday, after a lot of planning and work on the part of a number of Post
91 Legionnaires, led by Carl and Geneva Cornwell, who kept the spirits
high. The logistics were a little dicey, but it all came together on Saturday
and the Executive Committee of Post 91 wishes to thank all of the
workers that gave of their time and efforts in this fund-raising task. Carl
and Geneva worked hard in getting the signs and advertising out around
the area and other members of the Post assisted with their assigned
chores, bringing this event to a successful finish. The leftover flea market
items were donated to a local charity. The cooking crew of Cecil
Robinson and "Dr. Bob" Vaughan, cooked all the hamburgers and nearly
ran out of sodas, so there was little problem with left-overs. The
LifeSouth bloodmobile had expected at least eight donors and we hit the
mark with eight. All in all, this first time did fairly well. Congratulations
to those Legionnaires involved.
Thursday, March 17th, is not only St Patrick's Day, but also the regular
monthly meeting for Post 91. The Post will have a Donation Spaghetti
Dinner beginning at 5:30 PM and going until 7:00 PM. with an
All-You-Can-Eat Spaghetti Dinner for a Donation of just $5.00. The
dinner includes a salad, garlic bread, iced tea or coffee, and a birthday
cake dessert. March 17th is the Post 91 celebration of the American
Legion birthday. The American Legion is 86 years old this year.
Doughboys from the Allied Expeditionary Forces met in Paris, France, in
March of 1919, to discuss what could be done to help the American GIs
when they returned home. By theend of 1919, the American Legion had
been formed, the Preamble and by-laws written and in place, and the
American Legion was underway, helping American veterans and their.
families.
Recently the Department of Defense caved in to the ACLU and
declared that no Department offices or bases could sponsor Boy Scout
Troops. The Sea Cadets in Yankeetown were affected by this decree and
lost their sponsor in the US Coast Guard. They could still meet there, but
needed a sponsor. Two of the adult leaders being members of Post 91,
contacted Post 91 Finance Officer (and Gilchrist County Service Officer)
Major Stroupe for assistance. Major initiated a telephone "emergency
E-Board meeting" to discuss this problem. The outcome of this meeting is
that now Post 91 is the proud new sponsor of the Sea Cadet Unit in
Yankeetown. Major Stroupe should have more details at the meeting
Thursday night.
The Post is only a few members away from being 100 percent. If you
have not paid your dues yet, please do so. At the end of the month of

HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY
This 1800's advertisement of
a Grand Army first-class six-
hole range for coal or wood, I
find very unique. I can recall
from the time I was a young
girl, we had a similar kitchen
stove but not as classy as this
one. This Grand Army one is
elegantly ornamented with
nickel and art tile. It has a 20"
x 22" length by 18" x 20" width
oven which is 11" x 12 1/2"
high. The fire door on the end
is 7 x 7" x 8-1/2-9" x 22 x 24'
length. The fire box for wood is
22" x 24".. Classy indeed!
Does it bring back a few memo-
ries for you as it does me?

The first recipe for happiness
is: Avoid too lengthy
meditations on the past...

REMINDER
Sunday, March 20th is Palm
Sunday and the first day of
Spring...

The art of silence is as great as
the art of speech...

BIRTHDAYS
SHappy Birthday to Pat Crosby
of Waccasassa Lake on March
17th; to Sherrie Moore of Bell
on March 22nd; to Barbara
Matusik (68) of Waccasassa
Lake and Loris Boutwell (77) of
Tiger, Georgia... "May all of
you have a great day celebrat-
ing!"

To learn which work saves,
one must rightly meditate on
these three: Doing, not doing
and undoing...

ANNIVERSARY
Happy 32nd Anniversary to
Robert and Brenda Reeves of
Sun N'Fun on March 20th...
"Have a lovely day celebrat-
ing!"

Three grand essentials to
happiness in this life are
something to do, something to
love, and something to hope
for...

FANTASTIC FACTS
This is how the "pup tent" got
its name:

other tents and were named by
the Union soldiers in the Civil
War. When they were intro-
duced and the soldiers were told

much like dog kennels to the
men that one of them stuck his
head out and began to bark.
The idea took hold and soon the
whole camp was barking. The
tents were therefore called "dog
tents" the name soon degener-
ating into "pup tents."

How come the mighty Bengal
tiger is an endangered species
while the puny mosquito
flourishes...

RIB TICKLERS
I was scribbling my name on
the receipt for my credit-card
purchase when the clerk noticed
that I had never signed the back
of my card. Before she could
complete the transaction, she
said I would have to sign it.
"Why?" I asked.
"So I can compare the signa-
ture on the card with the one on
your receipt."
Fair enough. I signed it.
She picked up the card and
the receipt, and studied both
signatures.
As luck would have it, they
matched.

A new restaurant opened in
our town, so my husband, Wal-
ter, and I decided to try it. As
the waitress took our order,
Walter asked if the coffee was

A friend spent two hours in
the salon getting her hair col-
ored, cut and blow-dried. After
all that, was it too much to ask
to be treated like Cinderella en-
tering the ball? Yet when she
went to pay, the receptionist
said, "Hello, Madam, who is
your appointment with today?"

A co-worker was beside him-
self. He was expecting an im-
portant business call, but his
phone wasn't receiving incom-
ing calls. He phoned the tech-
nical department, but no one an-
swered. So he sent this urgent
e-mail: "Could you please give
me a call; my telephone doesn't
work."

I walked for miles at night
along the beach, composing bad
blank verse and searching end-
lessly for someone wonderful
who would step out of the dark-
ness and change my life. It
never crossed my mind that that
person could be me.

"I fear that one day I'll meet
God, He'll sneeze, and I won't
know what to say."

One thing everybody in the
world wants and needs is
friendliness...

lic, vinegar and water; gradually

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Kind of a Kiss
In this peculiar world in
which we are compelled to
live...
There are all kinds of kisses
that we humans give...
There is the after-breakfast
kiss that never comes too
soon...
And one that seems to make a
dream dissolve into the moon...
The special kind for mom and
dad or junior in his crib...
Or which the latter lavishes
with never any bib...
The kiss of one is just for fun
or seals a vow for life...
And there is he who gives it
to the mother of his wife...
In this peculiar world we have
a kiss of every kind...
Because each one depends
upon the current state of mind.
By James J. Metcalf

I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: I do
not know what your destiny
will be, but one thing I know;
the only ones among you who
will be really happy are those
who will have sought and
found how to serve...

ILOG CABIN QUILTERS


The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, March 10'h at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
What a wonderful day we had
with the Triple Crown Quilt
Club. Thirty-five ladies and
one bus driver came over from
The Villages near Leesburg on a
big bus and we had a great time.
They all went home with new
ideas and a quilt package to
make and share. We had a big
chicken and dumpling dinner
with all the trimmings. Goldie
made her famous egg custard
that all enjoyed. There was so
much food to enjoy. We had a
friend who traveled from Ocala
to get some chicken and other
good things. We all learn from
each other and look forward to
seeing them again.
The "Flower of the Month"
quilt came out of the frame as
well as a "Log Cabin" and next
week we will put in two more.
The green and white "Log
Cabin" comes out next and then
we will start on the third one.
Last Monday we had Jeffery
and ten boys out from Lancaster
and on Friday we had Jarrod
and six boys out to work. These
boys do so much for us and I
know without them we
wouldn't have a beautiful mu-
seum and yard.
Lunch was enjoyed with 56
guests and members.

Springhouse
Quilter's News
The Springhouse Quilters had
an exciting meeting day on
Tuesday, March 8th. There were
44 regular members and four
guests present for the regular
meeting. The quilters' house
was wall to wall quilters. Even
with a large group, the quilters
made plenty of room for all the
exciting quilted demonstrations,
and completed quilted projects.
Kay Fales, President, chaired
the meeting and was able to lead
the members through their
meeting from the food and fel-
lowship time to the showing and
telling of the many completed
quilted projects.
The-members are working on
a community project for 2005;
making wheel chair tote bags to
be shared with the nursing
homes. These are to be given to
Alice Gilberts upon completion
for distribution in the early fall.
The "Chicken" challenge has
proved to be an exciting project
for the quilt guild. This is a
voluntary project. Each mem-
ber participating must make a
"chicken" project to be given to
Alice Gilberts by April 11th.
The chickens cannot be pre-
printed chickens, they must be
designed and made from pieces
of fabric. The projects will be
judged and the winners an-
nounced in May. There will be
a first, second and third place
winner.
Program Chairman, Jan Litz-
inger, was unable to attend the
meeting. She is in the hospital
recovering from heart by-pass
surgery. Jan has served as
president, as well as, program
chairman on many of the com-
mittees. Well wishes go out to
Jan with a prayer for a speedy
recovery.
A donated quilt top was dis-
played during the meeting. Af-
ter an exciting auction, the
lucky person to acquire the an-
tique quilt top was Mary
Rawlins.
The program for the work-
shop on March 22nd will be
changed to allow time for sev-
,,, ,, ,| -i ,,I i,o r,,,o r <,' 2,,


eral members to sandwich some
quilts. All members are urged
to bring their quilting projects
and work on them during this
meeting time.


Anyone needing information
on Springhouse Quilter's Guild
should call Kay Fales, 490-7909
or Lois Scott 463-2207.

TIES
(Revised 27 January 2005)
ARTICLE 1. STATUTORY
AUTHORIZATION, FINDINGS
OF FACT, PURPOSE, AND
OBJECTIVES
SECTION A. STATUTORY
AUTHORIZATION
The Legislature of the State of
Florida, through pursuant to Chap-
ter 166, Florida Statutes, delegated
the responsibility to local govern-
ment units to adopt regulations de-
signed to promote the public health;
safety, and general welfare of its
citizenry. Therefore, the Board of
Commissioners of the City of
Trenton, Florida does hereby adopt
the following floodplain manage-
ment regulations.
SECTION B. FINDINGS OF
FACT
1. The flood hazard areas of
the City of Trenton, Florida
are subject to periodic inun-
dation, which results in loss
of life and property, health
and safety hazards, disrup-
tion of commerce and gov-
ernmental services, extraor-
dinary public expenditures
for flood protection and re-
lief, and impairment of the
tax base, all of which ad-
versely affect the public
health, safety and general
welfare.
2. These flood losses are
caused by the cumulative ef-
fect of obstructions in
floodplains causing in-
creases in flood heights and
o :' elocilees. and by 'thle'd6cu-
nc. '"' 'cylfi -l,!fi kaa fftas '
by uses vulnerable to floods
or hazardous to other lands
which are inadequately ele-
vated, flood-proofed, or
otherwise unprotected from
flood damages.
SECTION C. STATEMENT
OF PURPOSE
It is the purpose of this ordinance
to promote the public health, safety
and general welfare and to mini-
mize public and private losses due
to flood conditions in specific areas
by provisions designed to:
1. Protect human life, health,
safety and welfare,
2. Minimize expenditure of'
public money for costly


aJ


flood control projects,
3. Minimize the need for res-
cue and relief efforts associ-
ated with flooding and gen-
erally undertaken at the
expense of the general pub-
lic,
4. Minimize prolonged busi-
ness interruptions,
5. Minimize damage to public
facilities and utilities such
as water and gas mains,
electric, telephone and
sewer lines, roadways, and
bridges and culverts located
in floodplains,
6. Help maintain a stable tax
base by providing for the
sound use and development
of flood prone areas in such
a manner as to minimize
flood blight areas, and
7. Ensure that potential home-
buyers are notified that
property is in a flood hazard
area.
SECTION D. METHODS OF
REDUCING FLOOD LOSSES
In order to accomplish its pur-
pose, this ordinance includes meth-
ods and provisions for:
1. Restricting or prohibiting
uses which are dangerous to
health, safety, and property
due to water or erosion haz-
ards, or which result in
damaging increases in ero-
sion or in flood heights or
velocities,
2. Requiring that uses vulner-
able to floods including fa-
cilities which serve such
uses be protected against
flood damage throughout
their intended life span,
3. Controlling the alteration of
natural floodplains, stream
channels; and natural pro-
tective barriers, which help
accommodate or channel
flood waters,
4. Controlling filling, grading,
dredging, and other devel-
opment which may increase
flood damage, and
5. Preventing or regulating the
construction of flood barri-
ers that will unnaturally di-
vert flood waters or may in-
crease flood hazards in other
areas.
ARTICLE 2. DEFINITIONS

low, words or phrases used in this
ordinance shall be interpreted so as
to give them the meaning they have
in common usage and to give this
ordinance its most reasonable ap-
plication.

Area of special flood hazard is
the land in the floodplain within a
community subject to a one- per-
cent. or greater chance of flooding
in any given year. The term "spe-
cial flood hazard area," for pur-
poses of these regulations, is syn-
onymous with the phrase "area of
special flood hazard."
Base flood means the flood hav-
ing a one percent chance of being
equaled or exceeded in any given
year (also called the "regulatory
flood").
Basement means any area of a
building having its floor sub-grade

Breakaway Wall means a wall
that is not part of the structural sup-
port of the building and is intended
through its design and construction
to collapse under specific lateral
loading forces, without causing
damage to the elevated portion of
the building or the supporting foun-
dation system.

tions is a statement that the struc-
ture(s) has been built according to
the plans being certified, is in place,
and is fully functioning.
Critical facility means a facility
for which even a slight chance of

ance is granted shall be notified in
writing over the signature of the

base flood level increases
risks to life and property.

was undersized. The subject
was cited for possession of
spotted sea trout out of season
and warned for the undersized
trout.
On March 3rd, Officers Andy
Maltais and Dave Rosado con-
ducted 'land patrol in the May-
port area. On a fisheries stop
just off State Road A1A at the
south bank of the St. John's
River, three men were observed
fishing with one pole. Upon
contact with the individuals, the
owner of the adjacent pickup
truck, with dark tinted windows,
was asked for consent to search
his vehicle for fish. Rosado
searched while Maltais ran war-
rant checks through dispatch.
When opening the door, Rosado
smelled the burnt odor' of can-
nabis. In a small Planter's pea-
nut can found on the center con-
sole, was a small bag of
cannabis. The owner was asked
if there were any drugs in the
truck and he replied "Not that I
know of." The owner was read
Miranda and placed under ar-
rest. His statements after arrest
were "It's not mine" and
"That's my boss over there."
Upon initial hesitation, com-
bined with a moment of staring,
the boss came forward and said
the can and bag was his. The
owner waS released aid his boss
received a misdemeanor citation
with a property receipt for the
6.8 grams of cannabis from
Maltais.
On March 7th, Officers Dave
Rosado and Andy Maltais were
on water patrol in the Mayport
area. Rosado came alongside of
a vessel anchored in the St.
Johns River. The vessel was
occupied by a male and a fe-
male both of whom were ac-
tively fishing. Rosado obtained
the male's identification and
boat registration. The female
did not have any identification,
but gave Maltais her name and
date of birth. Rosado asked her
what her age was, but it did not
add up with her year of birth.
When running her name and
date of birth, Rosado found that
it came back to a white female
that did match her description.
The license information had
several suspensions, but no war-
rants. Rosado questioned her
and she finally admitted she was
using her sister's information.
It was found that she had a bur-
glary warrant with a $50,000
bond. She was arrested and
booked on the warrant and for
False Name and ID. It was also
found that a week before this
encounter, she had given Officer
Brad Givens the same false in-
formation. Charges for that en-
counter are to be filed with the
State Attorney's Office.
On March 9th, Officers Giv-
ens, Jamie Beven, Craig Ma-
guire and Maurice Naylor
worked a detail at the St.
Augustine Fish Management
Area and arrested two individu-
als for lewd and lascivious con-
duct. At high noon, the suspects
were in public, engaging in a
sex act when the officers made
the arrests. The St. Augustine
Fish Management Area has
been plagued with this type of
activity and the detail was in-
stituted to combat the problem.

On March 9h, Officer Shuster
participated in a public speaking
engagement in front of the
Withlacoochee Fishing Club.
The meeting was held in the
VFW hall located in Inglis.
During Shuster's speech, he
talked about the new fish meas-
urement regulations and boating
safety. When questioned about
