Gilchrist County Experiences High Winds

And Tornadoes During Wednesday


Morning Storms

Gilchrist County Emergency
Management reported that /
Gilchrist County was on the.,
northern most side ,of an
extensive storm cell that caused
severe damage to many
structures, knocked down power
lines and blocked many roads to
early morning traffic on
Wednesday, March 23.
Ron Mills, Assistant
Director- of Emergency
Management explained that
three tornadoes were reported to
have caused severe damage
,when the storm blew in from the
Gulf of Mexico just before 3:00,
a.m. This storm caused
extensive damage in Northwest
Gilchrist County and caused
electric power service to be
interrupted until late that
afternoon for customers in the
Trenton area. Tornadoes were
reported near CR-344 between '"
Trenton and Bell. Another
tornado was reported to have This hay b
struck a residential area just portion of

On Thursday, March 24'h at
Trenton Elementary School, the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation held a kick off meet-
ing for area residents and busi-
nesses. The meeting drew in
just over 60 participants from
Trenton and other nearby towns.
The meeting was to give resi-
dents information on the expan-
sion of SR 26. This expansion
will change the. existing road-
way from two lanes to four
lanes from the intersection of
SR 26 at US 19 in Fanning
Springs to the intersection of
CR 26A in Newberry.
The study is divided into two
sections. The first section is
about 18 miles long, from the
intersection in Fanning Springs
to the Alachua County line.
The next section is ,about four
miles long and picks up from
the Alachua County line and
continues through to the inter-
section of CR 26A in Newberry.
Bill Henderson, of the Florida
Department of Transportation in
Lake City, was on hand for
questions. He introduced
Rosemary Woods, Assoc. V.P.
of PBS& J (the company to
conduct the study).- Ms. Woods
explained, "The Project Devel-
opment and Environment Study
(PD & E Study) involvestget-
ting out and collecting informa-
tion about the area where the
project is located, such as in-
formation on wetlands, endan-
gered species, any drainage is-
sues, possible archeological
sites, locations of homes and
businesses, noise sensitive sites,
.and a wide variety of issues that
are analyzed during a project."
She then explained that a PD&E
Study is also used to identify
and evaluate transportation al-
ternatives that meet future traf-
fic demand.
She explained.that SR
26, east of Newberry into
Gainesville, has already been
widened. "This PD & E Study
is the next step in the transpor-
tation infrastructure process to
complete sections to the west.
In 1995 the Department. of
Transportation prepared a spe-
cial study area report that rec-
ommended a PD & E Study be
Performedd" When a roadway


Rosemary Woods, Associate Vice President at PBS & J, explained the study. and timeline
residents could expect the project to take. The study will help make sure the expansion of
SR 26 from two lanes to four lanes has the least impact on residence, businesses and
environment as possible. She explained that while this is the beginning of the study
residence will not see any actual construction for about 10 years and that is assuming
funding is available. Photo by Anna Wild.


project begins there are five
phases that occur. First is the
planning phase; second the PD
& E Study; third is design;
fourth is right-of-way acquisi-
tion; and then the construction
process. Ms. Woods explained
that the study would take about
30 months to complete. Some
design work may start toward
the end of the PD & E Study,
however, design and right ac-
quisition each may take a couple
years to complete their tasks.
So even if the funds are avail-
able immediately, those of us
who live and work here are still
looking at about ten years be-
fore actual construction begins.
At the meeting Jonathan Reed
suggested the curb and gutter
plan on roads in town to allow
maximum land use which costs
more but may be the "right
thing to do.". Then Eric Van-
derhaden, a local resident and
business owner, recommended


that there be no town by-pass.
He explained that in the past
when major roads were routed
around small towns the towns
businesses suffered due to loss
of traffic. Mr. Henderson from
the Florida Department of
Transportation wanted to let
everyone know if they wanted
to write in their comments re-
garding this project the ad-
dresses to use are: FL DOT,
Title VI & VIII Coordinator,

Shands Kids Benefit
Held At Scaff's
Market In Bell
By Anna Wild
This past Saturday, March
26T,. Scaff' Market in Bell held
their 1" Annual Shands Kids
Benefit to support the work
done at Shands Hospital. The
money raised will help the
Children's Miracle Network, in
association with Shands Hospi-
tal, create an environment that
keeps the kids' spirits high
while they reside at the chil-
dren's hospital. The benefit at
Scaff's Market in Bell raised
$2,158.90, and an estimated 700
people came out to enjoy the
entertainment, give blood, have
their sugar level checked, get
their face painted and just have
a good time (despite the rain off
and on).

Gilchrist Commission Adopts

Special Assessment For Fire

Service Monday Night
Board Has the Option of Changing Resolution to Include Impact Fees


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission brought a six-year
study to an end Monday night
and adopted a proposal that will
raise an estimated $490,000 to
provide upgraded fire service in
the unincorporated areas of
Gilchrist County. The proposed
special assessment will require
every residential homeowner to
pay a proposed $80.00 annually
to raise the revenue for the
county to begin a one, three,
five, and ten year plan that will
upgrade the fire service.
. In a previous meeting, the
commission chairman requested
each of his fellow board
members to present an
individual proposal on what
they would like to have for the
special assessment.
The workshop meeting
began as Chairman Mitchell
Gentry turned the informational
portion of the meeting over to
Ron McQueen, County
Administrator, to present a
review of the proposed plans
and study that had been
conducted in 2004.
McQueen reminded the
board of the most severe
problems that are facing fire
service in Gilchrist County.
There is a shortage of volunteer
firefighters. The equipment,
including many of the trucks
that most of the rural
departments work with, is worn
out. The extreme time periods
between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00
p.m., when most firefighters are
at work, is almost impossible to
get volunteer firefighters to
respond to a dispatch pager.
At the present time Gilchrist
County receives $346,000 in
revenues for fire service. These
funds are generated through
MSTU (Municipal Service
Taking Unit) on a rate of 1 mill.
An estimated 2350 residential
units in the county that are


under $25,000 property value
don't pay the 1 mill involving
the present fire service funding.
McQueen explained that
Proposal 1 from Commissioner
Kenrick Thomas identified a.
single family residence would
be charged $85.00 each. This
category is the largest of the
four divisions identified and
would raise $434,010 in
revenues.
Commercial properties
would pay a minimum of
$50.00 and if a building is up to
10,000 square feet, the business
would pay .0250 a square foot.
Businesses over 10,000 square
feet would pay a $250.00 base
plus. .010 per square foot. This
category would raise $6,825 in
revenues.
Vacant property would pay a
minimum of $12 each per
parcel. Parcels that are
identified as Agriculture
Exempt would be charged $5.00
each and timber parcels that are
identified as Silviculture would
be charged $10 each. This
category would raise.$5&,396.
All parcels that are identified
as hazardous or 301 sites would
pay $500 each. This category
would raise $9,000.
The total revenues for this
proposal are identified as
$508,231. This proposal is
based on a 95 percent estimate
of the entire package, which is
$482,819.45. Ron McQueen
explained that the figures that
are being used for these
proposals are rough estimates
and that they could be off by as
much as $2,000 to $5,000.
McQueen explained that
Commissioner Gentry submitted
Proposal 2. In this proposal a
single-family residence would
pay $80 each. This would raise
an estimate of $408,480.
The commercial property
would pay a minimum of $100.
Businesses with up to 10,000


square feet would pay .05 per
square foot. The businesses over
10,000 square feet would pay an
additional .010 per square foot.
This category would raise
$12,000 in revenues.
Vacant properties would pay
a minimum of $12 per parcel.
This would raise an estimated
$61,248 in revenues.
Hazardous or 301 sites
would pay $500 each. This
would raise an estimated $9,000
in revenues.
This Proposal 2 would raise
an estimated $490,728. At an
estimated 95 percent of the
proposal, the special assessment
would generate $466,191.60 in
revenues.
As a part of the Fire Service
1, 3, 5, and 10 year plan, a
proposed budget of $491,000
for the first year identifies seven
different critical needs
associated with this special
assessment proposal.
Personnel Service, including
dispatch, a training coordinator,
and two 40-hour-per-week
firemen for-a fee of $142,000.
General Fire category
identifies insurance and
operational costs involving four
rural departments at $86,000.
Fire Contracts with the cities
of Trenton and Fanning Springs
are identified at $25,000 each
for a total of $50,000.
New trucks and equipment
including three engines at
$205,000 each, three brush
trucks at $71,000 each and six
used tankers estimated to cost
$20,000 each for a total of
$120,000 for the first year.
A line item of $20,000 has
been identified as capital
building and equipment for the
first year.
An incentive for the
volunteer firefighters has been
identified as a need of $40,000

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission began the process
of putting a Special Assessment
for Fire Service into operation
Monday night when the five-
member board approved this
action in a draft.
The board attorney
explained that if they decide on
the motion to be considered as a
resolution, they would have an
opportunity to approve the
resolution in an April meeting.
Some members of the board
displayed an interest in the
meeting to have an Impact Fee
increase share the cost of this
necessary service.
I have listened to several
boards that sat as the Gilchrist
County Commission consider
different \versions of the Fire
Special Assessment for over six
years. The board finally agreed
in principal that a reasonable
budget of $500,000 or less is
something that Gilchrist County
could live with and begin the
extensive process of improving
the fire service in all areas of the
co:. ..
p6 iripro\e fire ser.\ ice."all
aspects of this- ser\ ice are gin.ig
to have to be looked at very
closely. From the time the call
is received by the 911
dispatcher to the moment that
individual calls for fire fighters
to respond to the emergency. If


you want the type of service that
everyone will be paying for, the
fire service trainer/coordinator
will have to work with the
county administrator and other
agencies to make the,
improvements happen.
The people in Gilchrist
County will now have to get
prepared for the 1,3,5 and 10-
year plan to be implemented.
This will be a lengthy process,
but a process that will be worth
its while, if the right people are
in place to communicate and
coordinate this program the way
it should be done.
. I just hope the board can
continue to work together for
the improvement of this county
and its residents.


God is truly amazing. He
chooses to sit with us in the
kitchen of life rather than in the
parlor, because He wants to
know us from the inside out.

A Letter To
The Editor
Recently a person or persons
gained entrance to the Southeast
Gilchrist Fire Station, appar-
ently backed the tanker out, and
siphoned off the gasoline from
the fuel tank. The truck was
pulled back into the station, but
truck lights were left on. I
would like to address a few
words to the guilty parties.
People, please! Think what
you are doing! The next fire
call could be someone's home.
Could be your home! What
happens if the tanker won't start
because the battery is dead or
quits a few hundred feet from
the station because the gas tank
is empty? Someone could lose
their home, someone could even
lose their life. It's not worth it.
If you are really destitute and
need gas to get to work, or look
for work, maybe we could take
up a collection or put on a bene-
fit for you. It would be a better
solution than stealing gasoline
out of a fire truck.
A few of us are trying to pro-
vide a service to the community.
We need all the help we can get.
This doesn't help! If this is re-
peated, we may have to camp
out at the fire station to protect
the equipment. It shouldn't be
necessary.

A Letter To
The Editor
As I was bicycling on the trail
from Trenton, I met Michael
Monresano cleaning the trail. I
stopped him and told him how
impressed I was with the main-
tenance and the care of the trail.
Tw o days after the storm, the
trail was beautiful.
I see many people on the trail;
young mothers hiking and
pushing their babies, oldsters on
tricycles, Lance Armstrong
look-a-likes, joggers, and hikers
of all ages, including 77-year-
old me.
But what strikes me most is
that everyone is smiling.
Thank you,

by her husband, to be carried
out. Being a parent also I can
understand their denial and I
guess I would even argue with
this in writing, but that is nei-
ther here or there.
3. Understandably these par-
ents have diligently pursued any
and all of the avenues of chal-
lenge that they or their lawyers
can conceive, including state
and federal governments which
were never conceived or con-
structed to resolve this kind of
situation! This dear lady should
have a zipper in the feeding tube
as often as it has been in and out
and in and out, etc.
4. Now, out of the clear blue
sky after 15 years, some
"EXPERT" has magically ap-
peared and oh well, this lady has
been MIS-DIAGNOSED for all
this time! As reported by the
electronic news hounds, he
stated that this dear lady is in
fact cognizant of everything that
has been going on and just un-
able to communicate with any-
one else for all this time. IF,
this is in fact true, then this
surely has been the world's
most flagrant and unbelievably
cruel unusual punishment ever
documented. Personally I to-
tally can't even remotely find a
way to comprehend such terror
or mental anguish.
5. Do you REALLY think
that this CANNOT happen to
you or any of your family?
Then just snort in disgust and
ignore the VERY REAL need to
document and secure such
documentation properly before
something happens unexpect-
edly! SWEET DREAMS.

over 60 scholarships to Gilchrist
County seniors to help them get
started at college.
The Beast Feast will be held
at Marc & Suzanne
DeChamplain's Heaven's Gate
Farm arena, on CR 307 just
north of SR 26. The
DeChamplains .have been a
blessing to the Education Foun-
dation. They started donating
the use of their arena after the
response to the Beast Feast had
grown so much that a large cov-
ered area was needed, especially
after having the beast feast in
the rain one year. The De
Champlains have donated their
time and money, and who else
would invite over 2,000 people
to park on their property and
hang out for a while. It's the
dedication and caring of people
like them that make this pro-
Sgram work so well.
The feast itself will only last a
couple of hours but the prepara-
tions necessary to pull off this
event started months before.
The morning of the Beast Feast,
the guys wvill start their grills
and begin cooking. As the day
goes on more and more will
show up with more grills and
deep fryers. They come from
all over; many people who par-
ticipate in the feast have no ties
to Gilchrist County but under-
stand how important this feast is
to the Education Foundation.
They come and donate their
time, equipment and more!
This year they will cook swamp
cabbage, frog legs, gator tail,
mule deer, water buffalo, quail,
beef dishes, fish dishes, wild
pig, turkey, rabbit, succulent
corn and much, much more.
Not to mention the best desserts
made by the local ladies who
support the foundation.
The Gilchrist County Educa-
tion Foundation is proud of their
supporters. Without everyone's
help, this program would not be
such a success. Coordinator Su-
san Bryant would love to thank
everyone individually for all
their hard work they put into
this Beast Feast. That would be
a very, very long list! So Thank
You to everyone who has put in
time and will be putting in time,
and I hope to see you at the 12th
Annual Gilchrist County Edu-
cation Foundation Beast Feast
on Friday, April 8t from 6:00 to
8:00 p.m. Come out and sup-
port our children's future.


High Winds and
Heavy Rains Cause
Extensive Damage In
Gilchrist County
Wednesday Morning
(Continued from Page One)

Supply near Bell. A third
tornado was reported to have
caused severe damage near
Spring Ridge in Northeast
Gilchrist County. This storm
had passed through this area of
Florida by 6:00 a.m.
Wednesday.
This front moved in a
northeasterly direction causing


more damage in Clay and other
counties on the East Coast of

Happiness
(Kent Heaton)


S. The world is filled with many blessings and
lated things to cherish from the hand of God. All of hu-
manity is given the measure of creation to see and
enjoy and life is filled with moments and times of
happiness. Happiness is a confusing emotion.
Happiness can be found in joy and happiness can
:'be found in sorrow. The heart is lifted up with
laughter, the heart is brought low with pain, and
yet happiness can be found in each. Happiness is
What we find in ourselves.
The psalmist David tells us the true measure of
happiness in Psalm 144:15 "Happy is that peo-
ple, whose God is the LORD." If we try to find
happiness apart from God, we will fail. Money
S cannot buy true happiness (Ecclesiastes 5:10).
The possessions of this world will not bring ful-
fillment and Jesus reminds us that "a man's life
consist not in the abundance of the things which
S he possesses" (Luke 12:15). To define happiness
is not to seek its meaning from the mind of men.
S The only happiness we can truly experience is
that given of God.
David found true happiness in the Lord be-
i cause he trusted in the Lord to be his Rock
(Psalm 144:1). Jehovah was his "loving-kindness
and my fortress, my high tower and my deliverer,
my shield and the One in whom I take refuge"
S (Psalm 144:2). What David found in his relation-
S ship with God was contentment of security, joy of
contentment and gladness in his joy. He was full
with the measure of God's blessings in his life.
David found happiness in the Lord through the
correction given to him by God (Job 5:17; He-
brews 12:5-11). He knew the contentment of
God's love from the wisdom he gained from
above (Proverbs 3:13-18; James 1:17). Sorrow
can produce happiness from the wells of hope
that live in us. "Happy is he that hath the God of
Jacob for his help, whose hope is in the LORD
S his God" (Psalm 146:5; Proverbs 16:20).
S Abraham found happiness because he trusted
in the Lord (Hebrews 11:8-19). Moses forsook
the riches of Egypt to follow Jehovah and found
happiness (Hebrews 11:23-29). The Bible is filled
with the stories of those who loved the Lord,


trusted in His will, followed His commands and
found happiness in their earthly life and looked to a
land of complete happiness where there is no tears,
no death, no sorrow, no crying and no pain (Reve-
lation 21:4).
Children of God face uncertain times and their
lives fill with the difficulties and frailties of life. In
the midst of our travail we can find the treasure that
does not fade away (Matthew 6:19-21). The happi-
ness we have in our heart is found in the riches of
.our heart being placed before the throne of God.
We endure trials with happiness (James 5:7-11)
and face uncertain days with the resolve that God is
watching over us. God will not leave us nor forsake
us (Hebrews 13:6) and "if you are reproached for
the name of Christ, happy are you; for the Spirit
of glory and of God rest upon you: on their part
he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glori-
fied" (1 Peter 4:14).
The Hebrew writer expressed the death of Jesus
as "the joy that was set before Him endured the
cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at
the right hand of the throne of God" (12:2). The
joy expressed by the Lord was the calm-delight of
knowing the sacrifice of the cross was the will of
the Father and that glory would come from sacri-
fice. James exhorts us to "count it all joy when
you fall into various trials, knowing the testing of
your faith produces patience" (James 1:2,3).
Through the trials of life and the cross we bear,
happiness can lighten the load through Jesus
Christ. "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy
laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon
you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly
in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For
my yoke is easy, and my burden is light" (Mat-
thew 11:28-30).
If we find happiness only in this life, we are mis-
erable. If we live each day with the Lord, we will
find the greatest happiness in the eternal life prom-
ised by a loving Savior. Margaret Lee Runbeck
said, "Happiness is not a station you arrive at, but
a manner of traveling." If we travel with the Lord,
we will find true happiness! No greater joy can be
given than happiness from God. I

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
For the past few weeks I have
reported on a mystery novel.
Well, here is another mystery
that is by Michael Connelly, a
Harry Bosch novel Angel
Flight. This author grew up in
Florida, attended the University
of Florida, and worked for
newspapers in Daytona Beach
and Fort Lauderdale before.
heading west to work for the
Los Angles Times.
Angel Flight is set in Los An-
gles where a leading attorney
and an innocent bystander are,
slain. The research is out-
standing and the expressions of
personal feelings are so soul
grabbing you want to reach out-
and -comfort .the family mem-
bers in their grief.
The Bermuda Triangle writ-
ten by Jim Collins is a mystery
concerning the ships and planes
which have disappeared in this
area between Florida, Puerto
Rico and Bermuda. This is an '
easy book to, read nid should
appeal to our junior readers.
For the beginning reader I
recommend Beatrix Potter's The
Tale of Jemima Puddle Duck.
A beautifully illustrated little
book about the anger Jemima
felt when her eggs were all
taken away from her for a hen
to hatch and to have the duck-
lings for her babies. Jemima
decided to make her.nest a\\ay
from the farm and hatch her
ducklings herself. She &oon met
a handsome, elegantly dressed
gentleman, Mr. Fox who in% ited
her to come into a tumbled
down shed to lay her eggs. She
noticed that this shed was full of
feathers and appeared to be
quite comfortable. What do you
think happened next?
We are putting new books on
the shelves every day. Come by
and'check on these but be sure
you bring any overdue books
you might have.

Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Last Friday; Legionnaire Bill Clifton buried his wife of many years and
on Saturday Ted Henley laid his father to rest. Post 91 extends
condolences to both of these families. Let us stand with our fellow
Legionnaires and comfort them and their families as best we know how.
The next regular monthly meeting for Post 91 will be on Saturday,
April 9th. The Donation Pancake Breakfast will begin at 08:00 and go
until 10:00 AM when the regular meeting starts. Come and join us for
breakfast and stay for the meeting. Legionnaire Vernon Layfield has a
program speaker for this meeting. Bring family, friends and fellow
veterans with you and enjoy the breakfast.
Post elections are in May, with the installation in June. Think of whom
you would like as a Post Officer for the coming year and let us know.
The floor will be opened briefly Saturday morning for nominations. A
nominating committee will also make a slate of officers known at the
May meeting and the floor again will'be open for nominations before the
election takes place atthe May meeting. Make plans to attend these
meetings and support your candidates for the Post Offices.
The Fourth District Legion Auxiliary President, Carol Kaiserian, has
asked for all the ladies interested in forming an Auxiliary Unit at Post 91
to come to the April 9th meeting. If the majority of the women will be
present, she will ask the Auxiliary Department Secretary to join her here
so the groundwork can be accomplished to get this Unit chartered. The
plan is to explain the Legion Auxiliary, get the paperwork done, elect the
leaders of the unit and begin the chartering process. Several of the
Legionnaires and interested women will be calling to check with the
ladies to be sure that they will be able to attend this meeting. The Post
already has a packet containing the application forms needed. Ladies,
plan to join us on Saturday, April 9th at 10:00 AM and by 11:00 Florida's
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 can begin to make a difference in
this community.
Also on Saturday, April 9th, there will be another reminder about the
Sons of the American Legion Squadron that is being formed at Post 91.
If you are interested and eligible, join us to hear more about this program.
Sunday, April 17th, The Fourth District "Legion Family Picnic" will
begin at noon on the grounds of Post 284 in Belleview. The District will
supply the hamburgers and hot dogs, sodas and coffee, and a host of other
food. If you wish to bring a covered dish to share, please do. Plan to
make this family picnic and meet some of the rest of our Legion Family.
Department of Florida Commander, Tom Seitzinger, will be visiting
the Fourth District on April 4th and 5th. He will visit the VA Hospital
and Post 16 in Gainesville and will be at Newberry's Post 149 at 7:00 PM
on April 5th. Newberry Post 149 has invited all of the area Legionnaires
to come meet, greet, and eat with the Department Commander. This is an
opportunity to meet some of the Department Officers face to face and get
to know them better. Join Post 91 Commander Wayne Gravely and other
Post 91 Officers at this covered dish dinner and meeting to welcome the
Department Commander to this area of North Florida.
Remember our Armed Forces all around this world in our thoughts and
prayers each day. Here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans,
widows and the families of those called to active duty, helping out when
and where we can.
For God and Country,

Sign-Up For Forest
Land Enhancement
Program To Be Held
April 4 June 13
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer
Services, Division of Forestry
announces that it will hold a
sign-up for enrollment in the
Forest Land Enhancement Pro-
gram (FLEP) from April 4th
through June 13th.
This program, authorized un-
der the 2002 Farm Bill, is avail-
able to non-industrial private
forest landowners on a 75-25
cost share basis. Eligible prac-
tices include, but are not limited
to: site preparation, tree plant-
ing, and prescribed burning ac-
tivities. Landowners who own
at least ten acres but no more
that 10,000 acres of land who
have a multiple-resource prac-
tice plan will be eligible to re-
ceive funding assistance under
FLEP. A maximum of $10,000
will be available for each quali-
fying landowner over the life of
the Program as reimbursement
for incurred expenses for ap-
proved practices.
Almost half of the state's 14
million acres of forestland is
owned by private non-industrial
forest landowners. According.
to national, regional and state-
wide landowner surveys, most
forest landowners don't.have a
management-plan for their
property. The state's allocation
under the program will-be used
for implementation of forest
practices prescribed in existing
or newly developed manage-
ment plans.
Landowners can obtain appli-
cation forms from their local
Division of Forestry office and
from other cooperating agen-
cies. The Division of Forestry's
foresters will provide technical
assistance to landowners and
will be the local contact person
for participating landowners.
For more information, contact
Matthew Johnson, Gilchrist
County Forester, your local
County Forester, or visit
www.fl-dof.com.

Callers ask about a variety of
topics, including children's
reading problems, school disci-
pline, special education policies,
testing, learning difficulties,
kindergarten entrance, and
school safety; Calls on any
subject are welcome.
The 2005 Hotline originates
from Baltimore, Maryland,
where approximately 5,000 K-8
principals will attend the
NAESP annual convention.
Educators volunteer in two-hour
shifts. Callers may also request
free copies of parent-friendly
brochures one discusses chil-
dren's fears and another outlines
the characteristics of a high-
quality elementary school.

Stephanie Hart
Named As National
Award Winner
The United States Achieve-
ment Academy has announced
that Stephanie Hart of Bell has
been Named a United States
National Award Winner in
History and Government.
This award is a prestigious
honor very few students can
ever hope to attain. In fact, the
Academy recognizes fewer than
ten percent of all American high
school students.
Stephanie, who attends Bell
High School, was nominated for
this national award by Ray
Stoel, an Economics teacher at
the school. She will appear in
the United States Achievement
Academy Official Yearbook,
which is published nationally.
"Recognizing and supporting
our youth is more important
than ever before in America's
history. Certainly, United

and appreciated for their dedi-
cation to excellence and
achievement," said Dr. George
Stevens, Executive Director of
the United States Achievement

GREETINGS
Spring is really the nicest
time of the year... at least for
me it is. Living in the country
is ideal for enjoying the many
wonders of nature. The birds
are in abundance and right now
there are many pretty cardinals,


tiny sparrows, assorted doves
and woodpeckers, including the
unique pileated woodpeckers.
There were many robins this
year and they especially enjoyed
the bird bath and taking baths
and knocking all the water out,
which I had to refill two to three
times a day. I didn't mind for it


was so much fun watching
them. Now I'm glad I decided
to put their feeders out sooner
this year for the very next day
they came. I always have one
right outside the kitchen win-
dow and the other by the palm
tree, where it seems they use
that tree for their home or nest-
ing. It's a safe haven for them I
guess.
And isn't it nice seeing eve-
rything turning green again and
the flowers already blooming on
some of the plants. Let's beg
Mother Nature to keep Spring
with us all year... no more hot,
humid summers would be
ideal... don't you agree?

To get the full value of joy,
you must have someone to di-
vide it with...

REMINDER
The Gilchrist County Crime
Watch monthly meeting is
Tuesday, April 5th starting at
7:00 p.m. Meetings are held the
first Tuesday of each month in
the Sheriff's office meeting
room at the Administration
Building in Trenton.

American Legion Post 91 will
be having a donation breakfast
consisting of pancakes, sausage
and coffee at their Post home
beginning at 8:00 a.m. on April
10 h. Their regular monthly
meeting will follow at 10:00
a.m. They are now holding
their monthly meetings on the
second Saturday of each month,
hoping more Veterans and oth-
ers will attend during daylight
hours. Many, like myself, are
unable to drive after dark...
This is very considerate of Le-
gion Post 91 in making this
change.
So, remember, American Le-
gion Post 91 monthly meetings
are the second Saturday of each
month beginning at 10:00 a.m.
Mark this on your calendars...


Freedom is nothing else but a
chance to be better...

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Joyce

celebrating!"

FANTASTIC FACTS
The bell that Paul Revere re-
cast in 1816 from an older metal
bell and considered his sweetest
still tolls in the King's Chapel
steeple in Boston, Massachu-
setts. One of Revere's earliest
and largest, the bell weighs two
and a half tons.

Nostalgia is like a grammar
lesson... you find the present
tense and the past perfect...

RIB TICKLERS
Custom at Duquesne Univer-
sity dictated that if a professor
was ten minutes late, class was
cancelled.
One professor arrived early
for a 9:00 a.m. lecture. He
placed his hat on his desk, and
went to the faculty room.
Before he knew it, it was
9:10. By the time he got back
to his classroom, it was empty.
The next day, he let his stu-
dents have it. "When my hat is
here," he fumed, "I'm here!"
The following day, the pro-
fessor arrived promptly at 9:00
a.m. He was met by the sight of
28 hats on 28 desks and no
students.

Adam returned home late one
night, and Eve confronted him
at the door.
"You're seeing another
woman, aren't you?" she ac-
cused.
Don't be silly," he replied.
"You're the only woman on
earth."
Later, while half-asleep,
Adam felt a tickle on his chest.
"What are you doing?" he asked
Eve.
"Counting your ribs."

Arm yourself for your next
battle of wits with a child: >
SQ:, What part of a fish weighs

A: The scales.
Q: Why wouldn't they let the
butterfly into the dance?
A: Because it was a moth-
ball.

A woman held a seance in
hopes of getting in touch with.
her late husband who, during
his lifetime, had been a waiter
in a big swanky restaurant.
The candles were lit and the
room was silent. The medium
went into a trance, and soon the
table began to make knocking
sounds. "Phil," she cried, "is
that you? Speak to me."
"I can't," said a ghostly voice.
"It's not my table."

..... Alwaiys be ready "'. .
With'a kind word or Smile,
For whatever the season,
They're always in style.
They can do wonders
Where medicine's failed
To uplift the lonely,
The sick and the frail.

You show that you care,
That rough road seems
smoother
For those treading there.

Three Men Charged
With Hunting
Turkeys Over Bait In
Gilchrist County
The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
charged three hunters in at-
tempting to take wild turkey
within 100 yards of bait on
March 20, 2005 in north Gil-
christ County near CR 138.
Investigator Jay Russel, Jr.
and Officer Joe Johnston were
on foot' patrol in the CR 138
area of north Gilchrist County
when they located a group of
hunters on 80 acres of property
owned by the Zimmermans. As
the officers monitored the hunt-
ers, they noticed cracked corn
spread on the ground in differ-
ent areas.
One of the officers, dressed
in camouflage and appearing as
a hunter, went up to the three
fellows and began to talk with
them. The group asked where
the individual was hunting.
They told the officer that David
Kuykendall had been calling for
David Kuykendall II and Char-
les Guthrie. David Kuykendall
had a diaphragm turkey call in
his possession.
Investigator Jay Russell, Jr.
at that time identified himself as
a law enforcement officer and
the three hunters then displayed
their proper hunting licenses.
Officer Russel talked with
the hunters and walked back to
the hunting blind with one of
the hunters. The officer re-
viewed the area closely and de-,,
termined that all three hunters`
were involved in the huntmg of
turkeys over bait.
The three men explained that
the.cracked corn was already on
the property when they began
hunting in this area. They did
admit that they had knowledge
of the feed and where they were
hunting.
The officer issued the three
hunters, David B. Kuykendall,
II, 35, of Bellair, Florida; David
B. Kuykendall, 62, of Birming-
ham, Alabama and Charles D.
Guthrie, 62, of Pinson, Ala-
bama, citations for attempting to

you won't even need a license
to fish in freshwater, here in
Florida the number-one desti-
nation for anglers from all over
the world.
Bass, bream and crappie -
they all start biting this time of
year here in the state that claims
bragging rights to the, title
"Fishing Capital of the World."
The Florida Legislature and
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) set aside one weekend
per year for residents and visi-
tors to enjoy freshwater fishing
without having to worry about
buying a fishing license.
Bob Wattendorf, an FWC
fisheries biologist who helps
promote the annual event, said
the Free Freshwater Fishing
Weekend is an opportunity for
parents to open a whole new
world of adventure with their
children.
"When you see a child catch
his first fish and hear the
squeals and screams and you
watch the breathless excite-
ment," Wattendorf said, "you're
seeing a magical moment the
child will remember forever.
And someday, the child may
pass that moment on to yet an-
other generation and carry on
the centuries-old tradition of
fishing in Florida."
Free fishing weekend isn't
just for kids, though. It offers a
convenient opportunity for
adults who haven't caught a fish
in a while to get reacquainted
with angling, and do it in some
of the waters that have yielded
more than 700 world-record fish
catches.
"It doesn't take much of an
investment to go fishing here,"
Wattendorf said. "A can of
worms, a cane pole and a few
hours of leisure time are all it


takes to get started. There is no
point in Florida that is more
than a few minutes drive from
some kind of fishing opportu-
nity."
Besides all that...you get to
eat fresh fish when you go
fishing, and every angler knows
the fresher the fish, the more
delicious it is on a plate beside
some cheese grits, cole slaw,
hushpuppies and maybe some
pork and beans or a little potato
salad.
Free fishing weekend applies
to freshwater fishing only.
Florida residents who take
advantage of freefishing week-
end and decide to settle into a
lifestyle of recreational fresh-
water fishing in this state's wa-
ters may want to check into an-
other promotion the FWC has in
progress. The first 3,000 Flor-
ida residents to purchase the
$61.50 five-year freshwater
fishing license will receive $80
worth of free hooks, lures,
fishing line, magazines and
other goodies like T-shirts and
fishing towels.
"This is a great way to help
contribute to the future of fish
and wildlife conservation in
Florida," Wattendorf said.
"Anybody who is interested can
get more information includ-
ing up-to-date information
about whether the 3,000 limit
still is open -- at MyFWC.com."
Anglers who plan on buying a
boat and pick the right make can
save $250 on gear to outfit the
vessel if they buy the five-year
license during the promotion.
Fishing licenses are available
at county tax collectors' offices,
license agents, online at
MyFWC.com or over .the phone
at 888-FISH-FLORIDA.

Cathryn Collins
Vanous Scholarship
Established
Ken and Pat Vanous of Lake
City have generously estab-
lished the Cathryn Collins
Vanous Endowed Scholarship
in honor of Ken Vanous'
mother. The scholarship will
benefit Lake City Community
College (LCCC) music students
as a first priority and then
LCCC general scholarship stu-
dents. Foundation Executive
Director Mike Lee said, "The
gift will be submitted to the
State of Florida with the expec-
tation that LCCC will receive
"matching funds," which should
"double the endowment."
In addition to the scholarship,
Ken Vanuos donated to the col-
lege his mother's extensive
collection of musical piano ar-
rangements from the 20s to the
50s. Many of the arrangements
feature covers depicting beauti-
ful, period artwork from the
Jazz Era to the "Bobbysoxers."
Eighty years ago at seven
years of age, Cathryn Vanous
began her public singing career
at school, church, and family
gatherings. By age 12 she was a
featured singer on radio stations-
in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. Primar-
ily a blues singer, Vanous could
handle a wide range of singing
arrangements.
In 1933 at the age of 16,'she
received a scholarship to Coe
College School of Music in Ce-
dar Rapids and continued her
singing career for many years
with orchestras and on the radio.
She eventually signed contracts
'with Ted Weems and Ted Fio-
Rito throughout the Midwest.
Her professional career took
second place when she fell in
love and married Ernie Vanous.
Eventually, after raising two
sons, her husband's health
caused them to move to Lake
City to be near their family.
Cathryn now lives at Dowling
Park and to this day, she re-
members the words to all the
songs she performed throughout
her career.
After moving to Lake City,
Cathryn's love of music led her

Live Oral Bacteria
Found In Arterial
Plaque
Gum disease has been linked
to hardening of the arteries for
nearly a decade, and scientists
have long fingered a gang of
oral bacteria as the obvious sus-
pects behind many cases of the
vessel-clogging killer.
Now University of Florida re-
searchers have cornered the
bacterial ringleaders of gum
disease inside human artery-
clogging plaque the first con-
crete evidence to place the
pathogens at the heart of the cir-
culatory crime scene. Their re-
port appears in the current issue
of Atherosclerosis, Thrombosis
and Vascular Biology.
"Our finding is important be-
cause it has proved there are
live periodontal bacteria in hu-
man atherosclerotic tissue," said
study investigator Ann Progul-
ske-Fox, Ph.D., a professor of
oral biology at the UF College
of'Dentistry. "Now we can be-
gin. to understand how these
bacteria contribute to the dis-
ease process."
The oral bacteria UF re-
searchers found in the plaque,
Porphyromonas gingivalis and
Actinobacillus actinomycetem-
comitans, are two of the most
aggressive offenders in perio-
dontal disease, the leading cause
of adult tooth loss. Because of
the strong association between
periodontal and cardiovascular
diseases, scientists have postu-
lated for years that oral patho-
gens contribute to arterial dam-
age that leads to heart attack or
stroke, which kill nearly a mil-
lion Americans a year. In fact, a
recent study conducted else-
where found a direct correlation
between the amount of perio-
dontal bacteria in the mouth and
the formation of blockages in
the carotid artery in the neck.
To reach the circulatory sys-
tem, the bacteria have to breech
the barrier between tissues in
the mouth and the bloodstream,
Progulske-Fox said. For pa-
tients with periodontal disease,
whose gums are inflamed and
bleed easily, bristles from even
the softest toothbrush can tear


tiny blood vessels in the com-
promised gum tissues, leaving
the door wide open for bacteria
to enter.
But could the bacteria elude
the body's protective immune
response once within the.blood-
stream?
Researchers worldwide have
sought to empirically nab oral
bacteria dead or alive in
atherosclerotic tissues. They
have found remnants of bacte-
rial DNA in arteries, signaling
that bacteria had entered the
bloodstream. Yet scientists
have never been able to. grow
periodontal bacteria isolated
from arterial plaque in Petri
dishes, even though the same
species of bacteria swabbed
from oral plaque can be cultured
that way. Therefore, research-
ers could not be sure the DNA
was from bacterial trespassers
destroyed by the immune sys-
tems in the bloodstream, or if
live bacteria were actually di-
rectly involved in plaque for-
mation within the vessel walls.
"It makes sense that those
periodontal bacteria most inva-
sive in the mouth could be able
to adapt to the vascular situa-
tion," said study project leader
Emil Kozarov,' Ph.D., an adjunct
associate professor of oral biol-
ogy at UF and a faculty member
at Nova Southeastern Univer-
sity.
Probably only a handful of
periodontal bacteria have been
successful in making the jump
of being infectious to both the
oral and vascular tissues. Iden-
tifying these bacteria would
give researchers the inside
scoop on how the bacteria may
contribute to cardiovascular dis-
ease, said Kozarov.
To find them, Progulske-
Fox's team took the unusual ap-
proach of attempting, to grow
bacteria from arterial plaque di-
rectly on human artery cells.
They obtained a section of a
diseased carotid artery from a
74-year-old, partially toothless
male patient undergoing surgery
to remove an 80 percent block-
age at Shands at UF in
Gainesville. After removal, the
sample was rinsed and placed
on ice, then rushed to Progul-

ske-Fox's nearby lab in at
sealed, sterile container.
Within six hburs of leaving
the operating room, researchers
pureed plaque from the artery
and set it to incubate in a brew
of healthy arterial cells and liq-
uid growth medium. After 24
hours, the cells were separated
from the slurry in the flask,
washed several times, then sub-
jected to a series of fluorescent
baths containing antibodies sen-
sitive to P. gingivalis and A.
actinomycetemeomitans bacte-
ria.
Finally, the cells were fixed
to a glass slide and placed under
a microscope to search for the
presence of invasive periodontal
bacteria within the cell struc-
tures. If any of the artery cells
were infected with the bacteria,
fluorescent antibodies would
light them up like Alcatraz in
lockdown.
Progulske-Fox and her team
found the endothelial cells were
infected with both P. gingivalis
and A. actinomycetemeomitans,
proving live bacteria had been
present in the atherosclerotic
plaque.
"This. report certainly pro-
vides a smoking gun that live
bacteria have become seeded
from the oral cavity to become
inhabitants of the vessel wall,"
said Steve Offenbacher, DDS,
Ph.D., distinguished professor
of periodontology at the Univer-
sity of North Carolina at Chapel
Hill School of Dentistry. "The
exciting implications focus on
the known ability of these bacte-
ria to destroy connective tissue
in the mouth, suggesting that
when infecting the vessel wall
they may contribute to the in-
stability of the atherosclerotic
plaque leading to acute events
such as heart attack or stroke."
Progulske-Fox plans to study
atherosclerotic tissue samples
from 50 to 60 more patients to
better understand how bacteria
infect arterial cells. She sus-
pects some strains of the bacte-
ria may be more successful in
breaching the barriers separating
oral tissues from the blood-
stream. These bad bugs would
become "most wanted" in the
fight against periodontal and
cardiovascular disease.
"More study samples will
show us which strains are im-
plicated in the disease process,
so %e can design simple diag-
nostic rechnolog. that could be
used in a dental office to iden-
tify specific bacteria the patient
is carrying and whether that
bacteria is known to cause athe-
rosclerotic disease," said
Progulske-Fox.
She envisions those diagnos-
tic tests would be the first stop
in the war against periodontal
and cardiovascular diseases,
eventually leading to the devel-
opment of a vaccine thai would
prevent oral bacteria from ever
gaining a stronghold in the
mouth. Antibiotic or-antimicro-
bial treatments that could kill


the bacteria after they have en-
tered the circulatory system
might also someday be possible.
For now, however, she ad-.
vises people to practice good
oral hygiene.
"It is important for these pa-
tients to have very good dental
hygiene," said Progulske-Fox,
"because losing a tooth may not
be a big deal to some people,
but it can become a life-
threatening situation."

Mid-Florida Division
Of Children's Home
Society Receives
Honor
Stars Of Excellence Awarded
To Local Organization
Children's Home Society of
Florida, a statewide organiza-
tion dedicated to strengthening
and supporting healthy families,
has awarded Stars of Excellence
to the Mid-Florida division.
The announcement was made
recently by David A. Bundy,
President/CEO, and is the result
of a thorough services assess-
ment process.
The Children's Home Society
office in Mid-Florida was
founded in 1964 by an adoptive
father, Mank Camp, who was
fueled by his desire for every
child to have a loving and stable
family. Today, Mid-Florida has
14 offices in its 16 county area
and a staff of more than 130.
The Mid-Florida division of
Children's Home Society has
developed innovative programs
to meet the diverse needs of
each of the 16 counties that it
serves. These programs include
adoption, foster care, parent
education classes and support
groups, children's mental health
services, family visitation cen-
ters, a residential program for
teenage girls, fatherhood train-
ing, and in-home counseling for
families.
"I am proud of the work done
by the Mid-Florida division and
pleased to honor them with the
Stars of Excellence award," said
Bundy. "We established the
program to reinforce our values
and to recognize performance at
or above established standards
in the most important areas of
business. Congratulations to
Executive Director Jennifer An-
chors and her team for their out-
standing work."
Each of the Stars of Exe,1l-
lence represents critical opeia-
tional components that together
establish a foundation of suc-
cess and achievement. Areas of
assessment include: service
quality, financial stability, lead-
ership, employee relations, and
overall division effectiveness.
Designed as an internal recog-
nition program, Stars of Excel-
lence, is an opportunity to cele-
brate achievement and has
proven to motivate the staff to
achieve ever-higher standards
set forth by the Children's
Home Society of Florida.

Peace Corps Close To
Home
The Peace Corps was offi-
cially established in 1961. The
total number of current coun-
tries served is 72 with approxi-
mately 7,733 volunteers and
trainees who have an average
age of 28 years. The oldest vol-
unteer is 82 years old! They run
on a fiscal year budget of $317
million for the current year.
The mission of the Peace Corps
is to help promote a better un-
derstanding of Americans on the
part of the people served, and to
promote a better understanding
of the host country on the part
of Americans. In commemora-
tion of the Peace Corps' 44th
Anniversary during Peace Corps
Week February 28-March 6,
2005, Dr. Abraham Pallas,
Chairperson of Allied Health'
'Programis Lake City" 'Comriiu-
nilt, College, gave a'slidepres-
entation and displayed art ob-
jects he purchased from his trips
to Togo and Ghana in West Af-
rica.
Pallas and his wife, Pamela,
recently visited their son,
Christopher who has been a
Peace Corps volunteer in Togo
since June 2004. He works with
the small business division and
the women in the market place
to develop a cooperative to pur-
chase grain at harvest season to
sell later in the year. The
younger Pallas is also helping
raise money to build a new high
school for his village, Pagala.
At the present time the,545 stu-
dents attend school in eight
open air tents. His house is
provided by the Peace Corps.
Like the others in the village of
9,000, it has no electricity or
running water. During his in-
ternship he stayed with his host
family in the village of
Kpalime.
Pallas and his .wife visited a
game park in Ghana where they
saw an array of animals and also
toured an artisan center in Ku-
masi where they purchased ba-
tik. They then returned to Togo,
where they purchased a carved
giraffe, together with other
wooden carvings.
Togo, which is located in
West Africa on the southern
side, has a population of five
million people in an area ap-
proximately 100 miles wide and
300 miles long (22,000 sq.
miles). The per capital income' is
about $300. The inhabitants
have very few of the conven-
iences we at home enjoy. They
grow their own food which con-
sists of rice, large white potato
(two feet long), various fruits
and. vegetables and primarily

Progress Energy
Florida Reminds
Contractors And
Residents To 'Call
Before You Dig'
Progress Energy Florida re-
minds contractors and residents
to put safety first by calling
Florida's Sunshine State One-
Call toll-free hotline (800) 432-
4770) before digging in the
ground. Once callers provide a
specific location where digging
is to take place, the hotline op-
erator will inform all utilities
serving that location to mark
any underground facilities
within 48 hours so digging can
proceed without the possibility
of hitting gas, telephone, cable
or power lines. There is no cost
to the contractor or resident for
this locating service.
"Fall is a popular construction
season, which unfortunately
means there are more opportu-
nities for accidents," said Mar-
tha Barnwell, vice president of
Progress Energy Florida's North
Coastal Region. "Whether it's
electricity wires or natural gas
pipelines underground utilities
are dangerous and we want to
remind contractors and residents
how important it is to call the
toll-free hotline before digging
for any project no matter how
small.
Making the toll-free call
should be every contractor's and
resident's first step prior to dig-
ging."
Before you dig: Florida law
requires anyone planning to dig
in any easement, right of way or
permitted use area to call Sun-
shine State One Call toll-free at
(800) 432-4770 at least two


business days before starting
work. Contractors are required
to call in every job that involves
digging or disturbing the earth's
surface. Before calling, home-
owners and contractors should
outline the excavation area with
white paint so locators can eas-
ily tell where the digging is go-
ing to occur.,
You may not think a typical
home improvement project
would warrant a call, but darm-
age could occur when land-
scaping or installing a fence,
mailbox post or swing set. Fail-
ure to call before digging can
result in a minimum fine of
$250 and the job site possibly
being shut down. It can also re-
sult in expensive utility repairs,
.interrupted service and personal
injury or property damage.

Florida's call before you

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

S' FORMATION

This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible Per-
sonal Property. In addition, it provides information that iill help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


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


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

Trenton, Florida 32693
(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back: If you have more than one loca-
tion, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated
and written off the books?
A. Whether.fully depreciated in your accounting records or not, all
property still in'use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or
are provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those assets.
Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must be
filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I
have to file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature,'you
must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that
should be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any oth-
er personal property included in the rental unit.

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

Sarah was presented with some
special honors herself-she was
given a lovely hope chest made
by John Class of Bell. She was
delighted by the hope chest and
looks forward to filling it for her
future. She was also able to
meet Elvis (well, close to it).
Ron Olsen, an Elvis imper-

out to visit with Sarah and have
a picture taken with her. Mr.

Adopts Special
Assessment For
Fire Service Monday

,for the first year.
A cost of collections through
the property appraiser, tax
collector and clerk offices has
been identified at a total of
$33,000.
Commissioner Sharon
Langford presented a proposal
that identified a residential post
per household at $55. This
proposal would generate
$289,520. Along with the other
categories she presented, her
proposal would generate
$417,428. She identified
$50,000 for incentive pay.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
also proposed giving $50 per
call to each station who
responds to the dispatch.
Chairman Mitchell Gentry
opened the meeting to the public
for public participation.
Bruce Thompson, a resident
of the Rolling Oaks area and
member of the Southeast
Gilchrist Volunteer Fire.
Department, again asked, the
board to consider. a $1 million
bond issue to buy the equipment
and what was needed the first
year. Mr. Thompson is currently
preparing to attend fire college
and to become a fire service
trainer coordinator iu the
county. "The $460,000 budget
is a good start but it is actually
about half of what is needed,"
Thompson explained.
"I think we are headed in the
right direction, but I feel a
budget of $450,000 to $500,000
is adequate," explained John
Rance Thomas, a former
Gilchrist County Commissioner.
"I think the county should try
and get the municipalities
involved," Thomas added.
Thomas asked the board ho%
would they get a closer estimate
on the real numbers that would
be used for the special
assessment program.
Gilchrist Clerk Joe Gilliam
explained that the county would
receive a recap from the
property appraiser's office
before the county begins their
budget workshops.
"I want to thank the board
for the tremendous effort that
has been put forth in this special
assessment program,". explained
Lee Schaltenbrand, Assistant
Fire Chief of Spring Ridge
Volunteer Fire Department. He
also explained that the fire
trainer position also needs to be
a coordinator position because
this individual will have to
coordinate a lot of activities in
this new program. "'I think a
$450,000 budget is a good
start," Schaltenbrand added.
.Ron McQueen explained
that the delivery of new trucks
is on a schedule of 12 to 13
months. If the board agreed on
this proposal tonight, the county
would not start charging for this
proposal until October 2006.
John Rance Thomas again
requested the board to consider
adding a portion of an impact
fee increase to the fire service
special assessment budget.
-"Don't forget about fire service
when you talk about impact fees
again," Thomas added.
Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas explained that "the


board needs to keep in mind that
the safety of the people in
Gilchrist County is a priority."
Each of the board members
thanked the public for attending
the workshop meeting and being
involved in this process.
Commissioner ,Durden
explained that the board, over
the last six to eight months, has
come a long way in developing
a realistic concept for this fire
service special assessmefit.
Commissioner Sharon
Langford explained that she
liked the idea that everyone in


sis, now he works in a med-evac
and air rescue unit.
Tammy Jones of Scaff's
Market was the coordinator for
this event and she deserves a pat
on the back for a great job. She
was able to get some great gifts
that were raffled off at the bene-
fit and she was pleased to say
that no one said "no". to her
when she went to businesses

the count) would pay a share
involPing this fire service
special assessment. She also
explained that she didn't think
that fire -service should cost
more than the special
assessment that is now being
charged for emergency medical
service. At this time EMS in
Gilchrist County is funded:
through a $69 fee. :
"I am not in favor of doing a
$1 million bond issue," Durden
explained Durden explained to
the board by the time the county
would. begin to identify this
proposal for funding, the board
would have time to review and
further identify a budget for the
fire service proposal.
Commissioner Durden
presented his proposal to the
board. to consider a single-
family residence pa. $80..W0,
The commissioner put'his entire
proposal of $476,520 into the
form of a motion to have the
attorney take this information
and draft a resolution that the
board could consider in an April
meeting. Commissioner Tommy
Langford gave a second to the
motion This motion was-
approved by a 5-0 vote by the
commission.

By Anna Wild
On Saturday, March 19th, the

their Annual Easter Egg Hunt.
This year they had approxi-
mately 350 children come out to
hunt for Easter eggs. Barbara
Locke was this year's coordi-
nator and she was very pleased
with the amount of help the
community was willing to give
to make the event special for the
children. Barbara wanted to
thank the Red Hat Ladies of the
Silver Oaks Development for
filling the 3,600 plastic eggs
with candy. She also wanted to
recognize Jack Lucas who took
the time to ask area businesses
and individuals for donations.
Thank you Lucas!
The City of Fanning Springs
always.has a raffle after the egg
hunt for lots of special gifts in-
cluding Easter egg baskets filled
with goodies, bikes and more.
This year the children got to
have books read to them in be-
tween the raffling.
The City of Fanning Springs
partnered with the Reading
Readiness Coalition to make
this year's egg hunt the best yet.

tion organized representatives
from the Levy County Sheriffs

onstration; the Gilchrist County


Sheriffs Explorers Unit offered
children's fingerprinting; Levy,
Dixie and Gilchrist counties
each had Pre-K Program repre-
sentatives; there were childcare
resources and referrals; Kathy's
All Things Learning Center

tivity; North Central Florida
YMCA had information on
various summer programs of-
fered to each county; the Florida
Library Systems offered infor-
mation on reading to the chil-
dren; the Dixie EMS Unit had
"Andy the Ambulance" on site
to entertain the children; Central
Florida Community College had
information on their services;
and the School Readiness Coa-
lition of Dixie, Levy and Gil-
christ counties gave an age ap-
propriate book to each child
who visited their booth.

tion is a non-profit agency
which helps in providing state
assisted funding for voluntary
Pre-K programs. For more in-
formation on their services call
