Gilchrist Commission Selects

Alexander Group To Construct

Courthouse Expansion


Gilchrist School Superintendent Tells

Rotarians That State And Federal Rules

Make Changes Necessary


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County"
Commission met with three
finalists of the construction and
architect teams that were
selected to construct the 10,000
square foot, $2 million proposed
Gilchrist County Courthouse
expansion. After the board
listened to the Alexander Group
LLC, Charles Perry
Construction, and Gray
Construction Services of
Trenton, Gilchrist County
Attorney John McPherson
announced that there was a tie
between two of the firms.
Mr. McPherson explained
that the board was reviewing
each of the three presentations
on a point system that would
allow the county staff to
calculate each of the tabulations
and simplify ranking the three
in order.
The attorney announced that
the tie was between the
Alexander Group and Gray
Construction Services. He
explained that the tie could be
eliminated if the third firm was
removed and the points were re-


calculated. He asked the board
and the three contracting groups
involved if they were in
agreement with the proposal.
The board agreed. When the
calculations were reviewed,
McPherson announced that the
Alexander Group, LLC had
become the top selected firm by,
one point.
The Gilchrist County
Courthouse expansion project is
a proposed construction
program which will provide
additional space to the judicial
and clerk office departments of
the courthouse.
In 1998 Circuit Judge Robert
Cates signed an Administrative
Order requiring Gilchrist
County to meet the American
Disabilities Act involving the
courthouse in Trenton. This
order also stated that the county
must upgrade the facility to
meet the Life Safety Standards
and provide secure and
additional space needed by the
judicial department and the
clerk's office in handling the
judicial mandates required by
the county.


The Gilchrist County
Commission first began to
improve the courthouse facility
around 2000 when they selected
an architectural firm to build a
judicial complex one block
south of the courthouse. The
architect and the construction
companies identified the
proposed project and
determined the facility would
cost $6.2 million to construct.
After a lengthy review, the
commission determined that the
facility being proposed was too
costly and was not feasible for
the small rural county.
The county, since that time,
has received funds from the
Florida Legislature to assist in
constructing the courthouse
addition.
The board agreed that
Gilchrist County would be best
served by following the Design-
Build Services Guidelines
identified in Florida Statute 287.
This would allow the board to
id"Jr'an what l ;;. ,aecd along
with an estimated price for the

Clinton Portis poses with his former high school coach, Coach Janes, along with
friends as well as former high school teammates Deiric Jackson and Rod Littles. Each
shared some stories with the students and sent a clear message: Listen to your coach,
get good grades, and stay out of trouble. They spent time with the students talking
one-on-one and signed autographs. Clinton also donated funds to get new football
uniforms for the coming season.


Trenton High School Welcomes

Clint Portis Of The

Washington Redskin


By Anna Wild
On Friday, April 15, 2005
Trenton High School welcomed
some special guests. Clinton
Portis, of the Washington Red-
skins, stopped by with.a couple
of his friends to speak to the
middle and high school young
men about how maintaining
good grades and staying out of
trouble are important to their
futures.
Clinton Portis, along with
friends Deiric Jackson and Rod
Littles, came out to speak to
these students in the hopes of
encouraging them to go for their
dreams. The thee men all
played football together at
Gainesville High School under
the direction of our own Coach
Janes. Coach Latsko and Coach
Blair Janes also played high
school football with these three
friends.
After high school, Clinton


went on to play football for the
University of Miami then went
into pro football. Teammate
Deiric Jackson went on to play
for Troy State and Rod Little
played for the University of
Maryland where he received his
degree in social work.
Each player was gracious
enough to share some stories of
what they had to overcome
when they were in school along
with some fun stories from their
high school football days. Their
message overall was clear.
Listen to your coaches, get good
grades in school and stay out of
trouble. They know that the
only way for young men to
make a good life for themselves
is to get their high school di-
plomas and continue their edu-
cation in the areas of their inter-
ests.
After the players shared some


stories with the students, Coach
Janes made the announcement
that Mr. Portis would be making
a donation to the school for new
football uniforms. The players
then stayed and signed photo-
graphs for the students and an-
swered more questions one-on-
one! The Trenton High School
administration was very pleased
by the visit Clinton, Deiric and
Rod graced them with. Thank
you for sharing your time, and
thank you very much Clinton
Portis for your donation of new
uniforms!



What. is experience? A poor
little hut constructed from the
ruins of the palace of gold and
marble called our illusions.
-Joseph Roux


By Anna Wild
Have you heard any good ru-
mors lately about our schools?
The problem with rumors is
they leave you with lots of
questions and no one has the an-
swers. I was invited to attend a
meeting of the Trenton Rotary
Club this past Monday, April
18th where Buddy Vickers, Dr.
Jim Surrency and key school
district staff members were pre-
sent to explain some changes to,
state and federal laws that were
affecting our school district.
The laws that our school district
must meet are not guidelines. If
we fail to meet the requirements
we, will lose funding that is vital
for our district.
For instance, one item being
worked on is the "No Child Left
Behind" Act (NCLB) which has
the goal of 100 percent of stu-
dents proficient (students scor-
ing "3" or above on FCAT are
considered proficient) by 2013.
Our teachers have done a great


job in helping our children do
better on these assessment tests
that measure their proficiency.
However, the anticipated goal
for the students will steadily in-
crease between now and 2013.
So basically our students are
doing better but they cannot
stop and take a breath yet, there
is still work to be done. The
NCLB Act sets expectations in
reading and math. As of 2004
under the reading category 31
percent of students needed to be
at a level "3" or higher. At this
time several grades are meeting
this goal while some are not.
By 2007 we are expected to
have 48 percent reading at level
"3" or higher, so we have to
prepare for the future. What
happens if we fail to meet the
federal law requirements? We
stand to lose funding. This pro-
gram provided $1,305,755.01 in
federal funds for education in
Gilchrist County. We cannot


afford to lose this funding.
Another item our schools
must plan for are the new read-
ing requirements. Recently our
school district had to submit a
reading plan to show how we
plan to meet the new reading
requirements. Our schools plan
to continue to increase the time
students have in reading classes.
If you look at individual grade
FCAT scores in Gilchrist
County you see that in third
through seventh grades our per-
centages are 60 percent or more
of students are reading at a level
"3" or higher. Then when you
look at eighth, ninth and tenth
grades, the percentages drop to
52 percent, 33 percent and 25
percent, this must be addressed.
The class size reduction plan,
which was voted on back in
November 2002, is now a re-
quirement. By the 2010-2011
school year the maximum num-
ber of students in core-curricula


courses assigned to a teacher
cannot exceed: PK-3 grade =
18 students, 4th- 8t grade = 22
students, 9th-12th grade=25 stu-
dents. Currently our numbers as
a district average are: PK-3rd
grade = 17.89, 4th-8th = 20.08,
.9h-12th= 14.63.
The thing we as parents need
to understand is the statere-
quirements are per classroom.
Each district is being allowed to
get ready for this change by first
adjusting their averages within
their district, next will be per
school and finally per class-
room. Because of continuous
growth we know our elementary
school will not be compliant if
we do nothing now. We barely
meet the state's district re-
quirements that were recently
reviewed.
Because of this law, our
school district has a team of in-
dividuals looking at all of our

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Monday, the Gilchrist
County Commission, with a 3-2
vote, approved an invoice for
$28,868.35 to pay WB Fence
LLC of Ocala, Florida for a
fencing job involving materials
which were removed, relocated.
and constructed in association
with the paving of SE 70th
Street.
Commissioner Randy
Durden questioned the amount
of the invoice. He pointed out
that the county was billed for
7,029 feet of new fence. For
this amount of fence the
contractor would need
approximately 21 rolls of wire
at a cost of $954.00 a.roll. The
commissioner also explained
that the county paid $400.00 for
a gate.
The board discussed that the
contractor, WB Fence LLC, was
the approved fencing contractor
for the fencing on the SE 70th
paving project.
Commissioner Sharoni
Langford explained to the board
that a :local fence contractor.
Danny :Roy Hodge Fencing of
Bell, submitted a proposal to
construct, relocate and remove
fencing along the construction
corridor but did not receive the
job. She explained that Mr.
Hodge's proposal was also less
than what Gilchrist County is
paying for the invoice they were
billed for.
The County Commission
was told that their engineer,
Mills Engineering, had signed
off and approved the. invoice


which was submitted to the
county for payment.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford made a motion to
approve the payment.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
gave a second to the.motion for
discussion.
"I just can't go along with
paying this amount of money
for fencing," explained
Commissioner Durden.
The board was advised that
the money the county expended
to pay for this invoice would be
reimbursed by revenues from a
Department of Transportation
grant. The chairman called for a
vote and the motion passed 3-2.
Commissioners Durden and
Thomas voted no on this action.

The Gilchrist County Com-
mission held a discussion Mon-
day night involving the increase
of impact fees during the mid-
month meeting. Superintendent
James E. (Buddy) Vickers and
several members of the Gilchrist
County School Board attended
the meeting to witness the dis-
cussion.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den explained he understood
that several commissioners
wanted to consider fire service
to be included in the Impact Fee
Ordinance. Durden .explained
that the present ordinance,
which the county operates un-
der, identifies fire service under
the Capital Facilities portion of
the ordinance. The commis-
sioner added this ordinance is
supposed to be reviewed annu-
ally by the board to see if the
needs are still valid.

FWC Moves To
Expand Deer-Dog
Hunting Program
In Tallahassee recently, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
voted to move forward in devel-
oping a process to expand..
statewide, a registration pro-
gram for deer-dog hunting on
private lands for the 2005-06
hunting season. Commissioners
based the decision on the overall
success of a pilot program in the
Northwest Region during the
2004-05 hunting season.
According to a report pre-
sented to the seven-member
Commission by Lt. Col. Mike
Wiwi, deputy director of the
Division of Law Enforcement,
Commissioners determined that
adopting rules to require deer-
dog registration statewide could
help maintain the traditional
sport by reducing conflicts be-
tweenr hunters and landowners" -
FWC 'aff"reporte'dthe' 1df-
tional'titrneandd costs' as'sodiatied
with the pilot program were
manageable. Due to the pro-
gram's effectiveness in ad-
dressing conflicts between land-
owners and deer-dog hunters,
and the positive feedback re-
ceived from everyone involved,
including law enforcement per-
sonnel, FWC staff recom-
mended statewide expansion
with no significant rule changes.
The report stated that 70 indi-
vidual properties representing
57 deer-dog hunt clubs partici-
pated in the Northwest Region
pilot program. These properties
ranged in size from 40 to 31,000
acres and were located in 14 of
the 16 counties within the re-
gion. Only Escambia and
Franklin counties were not rep-
resented, because they did not
have any registered deer-dog

FWC boating safety officials
and officers encourage boaters
to consider life jackets to be
similar to seatbeltS. when it
comes to their life-saving po-

life jackets-especially the
waist-pack -variety-are light-
weight and hardly noticeable
when worn.
"It simply makes sense to
wear one when you're on the
water;" said FWC Capt. Richard
Moore. "It's like the seatbelt in:
your car. If you aren't wearing it
when you find yourself a few
seconds from a collision, you
may have waited too late."
Also, excessive alcohol use
continued to be the leading
cause of boating fatalities in
2004. The effects of alcohol
may be even greater on boat op- I
eraiors hhan' h'icle operators ,
because. 'the combination of!
wave action, hot sun and physi-
cal exertion from being on the
water compounds the influence
alcohol consumption can have
on people. .
"As \with cars on land, it's al-
ways best for boats to be oper-
ated by someone who hasn't
been consuming alcoholic bev-
erages," Moore said. "Desig-
nated drivers can save lives on
boats, just like they do on high-
ways."
Moore said other suggestions
for having safe experiences on
Florida's waters include taking
a boating safety course, filing a
float plan with a friend or rela-
tive each time you take to the
water and making sure you have
the proper safety equipment in
working order. For boat opera-
tors age 21 or younger, the
boater safety course is a re-

The Election By God
(Kent Heaton)


The foundation of a democratic society is the
privilege to elect our fellow man to an office or
position in the community. From the popular view
of the voters, an electioih"is: done to place in au-
thority a person to help dictate and guide different
aspect of our lives.. This'process is how we elect
our local, state, and federal officers. Elections are
not perfect when conducted by men. Personalities
influence the decisions along with strong emo-
tions about various issues that color the vote. At
best, man can only elect another person based
upon a limited knowledge of the circumstance.
That is not true regarding Jehovah'God.
Paul addressed the "saints and faithful breth-
ren in Christ who are in Colosse" (Colossians
1:2) as the "elect of God" in Colossians 3:12.
Every Christian is a SAINT.ini the eyes of God
without any election from 'meit. The people of the
Old Testament understood' they blessing of being
saints of God (Psalm 16:3; 30:4; 31:23; 34:9) and
the early disciples %\ere called saints in Acts 9:13,
Romans 1:7, 1 Corinthians 1:2, and many other
passages. These saints were elected by God. They
were the chosen ones of God
Peter, an elder of the churchi and saint of God
by God's election, called all Christians "a chosen
generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His
own special people" (1 Peter 2:9). How wonder-
ful to be a chosen generation in the eyes of God.
What a glory to be part of a royal priesthood to
serve God in "spirit and truth" (John 4:21-24).
The character of the child of God is to be part of
the holy nation belonging unto God.
Our election is by God. "Knowing, brethren
beloved, your election of God" (1 Thessalonians
1:4). We are not elected because of our worth. We
are chosen of God by the mercy of God. "But
God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love
wherewith he loved us, even when we were dead
in sins, hath quickened us.together with Christ,
by grace ye are saved;"' (Ephesians 2:4-5). Men
elect men based upon some element of merit. We


are chosen of God not because of our importance
but rather because of our sin.
To be the chosen of God shows the measure of
God's grace and mercy to man. In the garden of
Eden, man rebelled against the will of the Creator
(Genesis 3). In love, man was spared from destruc-
tion and given grace to return to God and to be a
special people again (Genesis 3:15). Through Jesus
Christ, we have found the salvation that allows us
to be cleansed of our sins and made perfect (He-
brews 12:23).
The blessing of salvation was established before
the world was created. "But we are bound to give
thanks always to God for you, brethren beloved of
the Lord, because God hath from the beginning
chosen you to salvation through sanctification of
the Spirit and belief of the truth" (2 Thessalonians
2:13). "According as he hath chosen us in him
before the foundation of the world, that we should
be holy and without blame before him in love:
Having predestinated us unto the adoption of chil-
dren by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the
good pleasure of his will" (Ephesians 1:4-5). God
chose us, we did not choose God (1 John 4:10). He
blessed us with His mercy and grace (John 3:16).
The election by God is the greatest blessing we
have. This election is a perfect choosing of those
who would come to Him in obedience and serve
Him. Our diligence is to make our "calling and
election sure" by following the admonition of Pe-
ter in 2 Peter 1:5-11. Having been elected by God,
we will enjoy an entrance into the "everlasting
kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" (2
Peter 1:11).
Rufus was chosen in the Lord (Romans 16:13).
He was a saint of God. He obeyed the gospel as all
men must do to receive the wonderful joy of salva-
tion in Christ. Are you chosen of God? Jesus said,
"He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved"
(Mark 16:16). When you obey these words of
Christ, you become a saint chosen of God not
by men!

POST 91 NEWS
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031'
Elections for Post 91 Officers for 2005-2006 will be held at the regular
meeting on Saturday, May 14th, so plan to make that meeting. The floor
will be open for nominations before the election so last minute
nominations can be made. The slate of Post Officers selected by the Post
Nominating Committee is Major Stroupe, Post Commander: Wayne
Gravely, First Vice-Commander; Shelby McKinney, Sergeant-at-Arms;
Marilyn Williams, Post Historian; Finance Officer and Chaplain are open
at present, and Ted Henley, Vernon Layfield, and Cecil Robinson,
Executive Committeemen. The floor will be open for nominations for all
positions before the elections, so if you have a nominee, plan to attend
and 'put the name in the hat'. These Legionnaires will be the Office;s
leading Post 91 into the new year 2005-2006 and will need the help and
assistance of all the Post 91 Legionnaires to accomplish the programs and
tasks set forth for the Post to do in this community.
At present, Major Stroupe is the Post 91 Finance Office, as well as the
Post Service Officer, the Gilchrist County Veteran Service Officer, the
Post 91 Scholarship Chairman, and a host of other duties and offices in
organizations in and around this community. As you can see in the
paragraph above, Major will be 'changing hats' again in a few months.
As Scholarship Chairman for Post 91, Major has overseen the program to
not only raise the money or the scholarships but get the word out to the
schools that the scholarship is there for someone to win. Major has asked
that we include this note to our Legionnaires:
"Commander, we are blessed that our recent mail-out campaign to
support our scholarship program was a success. While we did not receive
as much as we had hoped, we have received enough this year to allow us
to fund two $500 scholarships this year. I want to thank those who gave
what they could and especially those who gave 'above and beyond' the
requested $20 donation. Our members are to be commended for their
dedication to see that this program stays in place to assist our young
people to advance their education beyond the high school level. That's the
good news. The bad news is two-fold. One, the cost of education is
continuing to rise and if we are to keep supporting our community with a
scholarship program then we need to gather more funding to award larger
scholarships. Second, with the attainment of our annual scholarship goal
we have left the general fund mostly depleted. I believe that the answer to
both problems is to get more people and businesses involved to help us
support our programs. As a community, non-profit veterans organization
our primary mission is to support the disabled war veterans and their
families. I believe the community of Gilchrist County has supported the
armed forces with a greater percentage of volunteers throughout the years
than more metropolitan areas. That speaks well for the strong values of
our rural community. Accordingly, I believe that our strong values carry
over to our youth' and as responsible educators we owe our youth the
guidance and resources to pass on our heritage to the next generation. We
therefore have a larger percentage of veterans and survivors than more
metropolitan areas. It is with that in mind that I ask that our local citizens
locate us, support us and they can depend on us. We need monetary
support from our community to better assist our community and attain the
goals of the American Legion in. taking care of our veterans and their
survivors. I applaud the efforts and support of those who have given. I
humbly ask Others whether they are members of the American Leion or
not to help us support our goals. Thank you, Major Stroupe in in' ,
Officer, Post 91, Trenton, FL."

Lance Corporal Josh
P. Smith Graduates
From Combat
Training
Lance Cpl. Josh P. Smith, the
son of Dr. and Mrs. Greg
Ruediger of Dothan recently
graduated from Marine Corps
Combat Training Battalion,
School of Infantry, Golf Com-
pany at Pendleton, California.
Throughout this challenging pe-
riod, Lance Cpl. Smith demon-
strated extraordinary perform-
ance of duties during all phases
of academic and practical appli-
cation training. In recognition
of his accomplishments, Smith
was selected as the Company
Honor Man, the only Marine
selected in a company of 486
Marines. Lance Cpl. Smith's
dedication to the Marine Corps
and his fellow Marines reflects
great credit upon him and is in
keeping with the highest tradi-
tions of the United States Ma-
rine Corps.
Smith graduated from Marine
Corps Recruit Training on Sep-
tember 10, 2004 in San Diego,
California. He was also se-
lected as the Company Honor
Man of Lima Company and was
meritoriously promoted to
Lance Corporal. Smith is cur-
rently stationed in Pensacola.
He attended Dothan High
School and Troy University in
Dothan.
He is the grandson of Cliff
and Nell Parker of Trenton.


Another Way
Stresses Need For
Funding For Rape
Crisis Services
Another Way, Inc., joined
more than 25 rape crisis pro-
grams in Florida to commemo-
rate Sexual Assault Awareness
Day on April 7th. Rape survi-
vors across Florida spoke out
about their experience in order
to raise ,awareness about this
crime that affects the lives of all
Floridians.
Another Way's executive di-
rector, Donna Fagan, pointed
out the daunting number of sex-
ual assault survivors in the
county compared with the rela-
tive dearth of funding for rape
crisis services. "According to
national data, 2,772 women in
D.ixie hi k li.i arid Levy couh-
ties are survivors of sexual as-
sault. These survivors need ac-
cess to services." The National'
Violence Against Women Re-
search Center found that one in
nine women in Florida have
been the victim of forcible rape.
In 2003 the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement recorded
12,756 reports of forcible rape
across the state.
Another Way urged the
crowd to contact their legisla-
tors about supporting the $4
million request the Florida
Legislature is currently consid-
ering to fund rape crisis serv-
ices. Florida has never funded
sexual assault services with
state general revenue.
"Rape crisis programs need
state funding more than ever.
We are facing devastating
funding cuts at the federal
level," said Fagan. Vital federal
funding programs such as the
Victims of Crime Act and the
Rape set-Aside funds that come
through the Public Health Block
are on the chopping block in the
President's proposed budget.
Almost all rape crisis programs
in Florida rely on these sources
to provide basic services such as
their hotline and crisis interven-
tion.
"The brave survivors who
spoke out today for Sexual As-
sault Awareness Day remind us
of our responsibility as a com-
munity," Another Way Out-


reach Coordinator Cathy Stud-
still said. "We must work to
eliminate sexual violence and
ensure that we provide victims
and survivors the services they
need to rebuild their lives."'
The Florida Council Against
Sexual Violence (FCASV), the
state coalition of rape crisis
centers, sponsors and coordi-
nates Florida's Sexual Assault
Awareness Day activities each
year. "Rape crisis centers are
invaluable members of our
communities. We are proud to
designate April 7th as a day to
honor sexual assault survivors
and the dedicated advocates
who serve them," said Jennifer
Dritt, FCASV's executive di-
rector. To contact FCASV, call
888-956-7273, or visit their web

tionist for 20 years prior to be-
ing convinced of the scientific
foundation for the creation
viewpoint. Dr. McMurtry ad-
dresses this issue on the basis of
science and contends for the
truth of the Biblical account of
creation and its tremendous
relevance to our lives. The
topics in this series are the Ark
of Noah; Foundations The
Contrast of Two Worldviews;
900 Years Old?; and, The Dino-
saurs, The Bible and the Fossil
Record.

Gilchrist County
Four-Year-Olds
Entitled To
Free School
Readiness
Preparedness
The Gilchrist County School
District was recently notified
that they will have the option of
serving four-year-olds next
school year.
The new Voluntary Pre-
Kindergarten Program, pro-
posed by Gilchrist County
Schools for next fall, will offer
three hours a day of free highly
quality school readiness services
for up to 54 children who will
be four years of age by Septem-
ber 1, 2005. State data on kin-
dergarten readiness shows that
Gilchrist County schools con-
tinue to score above the state
average in preparing children
for kindergarten.


The new law states that every
four-year-old is entitled to 540
hours of volunteer pre-
kindergarten services before
they enter kindergarten. Gil-
christ County Schools plan to
provide these services for three
hours a day for 180 days a year.
Parents of four-year-olds who
want services for more than
three hours a day will be offered
the program for a full school
day with a co-payment by the
parent based on a sliding fee
scale if they qualify for the
School Readiness subsidy. If
your child is not eligible for the
School Readiness subsidy, a full
,payment by the parent for the
remainder of the day is an op-
tion.
Gilchrist County Schools will
continue to serve three and four-
year-olds in the existing pre-
kindergarten programs.
If you want your child to be
.considered for the new Volun-
tary Pre-Kindergarten Program,
or any of the existing pre-
kindergarten programs, contact
your elementary school to' make
a screening appointment. See
the ad in this edition of The
Journal.

Free Gunlocks To Be
Distributed April 21
As part of the Project Child-
Safe program, representatives
and local law enforcement
agencies will distribute free ca-
ble-style gunlocks on Thursday,
April 21, 2005 beginning at,
9:00 a.m. The first stop will be
at the Gilchrist County Sheriff s
Department and then on to the
Trenton Police Department.
The National Shootng Sports
Foundation has partnered with
Local law enforcement agencies
to distribute an additional
450,000 free gunlocks in Flor-
ida as part of the national Pro-
ject ChildSafe (PCS) initiative.
PCS reminds gun owners to
take steps to prevent a loaded
gun from falling into the hands
of a child, thereby preventing
tragic accidents.
Phase two of Project Child-
Safe is funded by two grants
from the U.S. Department of
Justice that total $30 million.
These two grants will fund the
program from September 1,
2004, through August 31, 2005.
Phase one of Project ChildSafe
was funded by a $50 million
U.S. Department of Justice.
grant. Florida received 655,500
free gunlocks in 2004.
The current campaign will
distribute over 12 million free
firearm safety kits and follows
the successful Phase One distri-
bution of 20 million firearm
safety kits over the past year to
all 50 states. "There continues
to be a significant demand for
firearm safety education across
America and we are pleased that
Project ChildSafe is able to
meet that demand with millions
of additional free firearm safety
kits," said Doug Painter, presi-
dent of the National Shooting
Sports Foundation. "We are
continuing to remind gun own-
ers thai their most important re-
sponsiblityil -is to,-knof how .to.

TOWN OF BELL, FLORIDA

Telephone: 352-463-6288


TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:
SUBJECT: NOTICE CONCERNING CODE ENFORCEMENT.

Please be advised that the Town Council of the Town of Bell, Florida has recently enacted an ordinance
establishing a Code Enforcement Board to assist the town in enforcing certain ordinances in the Town of
Bell. The Town has also adopted the alternative enforcement method which allows the town to use a
Code Enforcement Officer to address violations and/or complaints, and a Code Enforcement Hearing
Officer to hear those alleged violations that cannot be resolved by the Code Enforcement Officer at the
initial complaint level. The Ordinance will take effect on May 1, 2005.

The Town will be entering into an Interlocal Agreement with Gilchrist County to share the costs of the
Code Enforcement Officer who is presently employed by the County. The Code Enforcement Officer's
name is Diane Rondolet and she currently serves Gilchrist County, Florida, the City of Trenton, and the
Town of Fanning Springs.

The Town Council's goal is to keep the Town of Bell as beautiful as possible and toward this end the
Code Enforcement Officer may be authorized or directed to seek enforcement of essentially any
Ordinances of the Town of Bell as directed by the Town Council. However, the primary goal of the Town
Council at this time will be to address such matters as unlawful dispositions and accumulations of litter,
trash, junk, or unserviceable vehicles, and to insure that lots or parcels of land within the Town are kept
where possible reasonably free and clear of weeds, overgrowth, and garbage waste, as may be reasonably
necessary from time to time.

Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Bell Town Hall at the telephone
number given above. Your cooperation and assistance in this will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
Deanna Crews
Town Clerk

GREETINGS
Like myself, I'm sure many
of you ladies can recall your
younger years playing with
dolls and dressing them with
clothes similar to your own.
Possibly you only had one doll
as I did when I was About the
age of this sweet young girl
featured today... I imagine her
mother made the doll's dress to
match her pretty blue and white
spring outfit. The picture ap-
peared on the cover of an old
40s magazine.
Isn't it great how we can re-
call past happenings so clearly
as we get older... as if it hap-
pened just yesterday. Life is
strange... but wonderful.
Learn from the mistakes of
others... you can't make them
all yourself...
BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Jeannie
Kelley of Bell on April 210"; to
Jessica Mahoney (19) of Bell on
April 23rd; to Joanne McLeary
of Sun N' Fun and Stephanie
Thurman (31) of DeFuniak
Springs on April 26th; to Jan
Naelynn Warren (31) of Ft.
White on.April 26th... "May all
of .you have, a very nice day
celebrating!"
Modesty is hoping that others
will find out by themselves
how great you are...
FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason we say we're in
"seventh heaven" when we're as
happy as can be is because the
Mohammedans believe there are
seven heavens piled one upon
the other and that each heaven
represents greater happiness
Than the previous one. God
himself and the angels are all
located in the seventh or top-
most heaven.
Junk is the stuff you throw
out and stuff is the junk you
keep...
RIB TICKLERS
A guy walks into a supermar-
ket and loads up his cart with
one bar of soap, one tube of
toothpaste, one toothbrush, one
pint of milk and a frozen TV
dinner.
As she rings up his items, the
cashier says, "I bet you're sin-
gle."g !'; I !
"How' can you tell?" the guy
asks.
"Because you're goofy-


looking."
Hearing a loud crash in the
middle of the night, Eddie
rushed downstairs to the den.
He saw a burglar dressed all in
black, rifling through his desk.
"Stand back!" the thief yelled.
"I'm looking for the money."
There are three men sitting in
the waiting room of a hospital.
A nurse walks over to the first
guy and says, "Congratulations.
You're the father of twins."
"What a coincidence," he
says. "I work for Twin City
Federal."
A while later, the nurse
comes out to congratulate the
second man. "You are the
proud father of triplets," she
tells him.
"That's funny," says the new
dad. "I work for AAA."
The third expectant father
jumps up with a look of terror,
and runs out of the room.
"Sir, where are you going?"
the nurse calls out.
He yells over his shoulder, "I
work for 10,000 Auto Parts!"
My musician son decided to
play guitar at his own wedding
reception. That day, tuning his
strings was taking longer than
usual.
"It's a little harder to do with
a ring on," he apologized to the
waiting guests.
That's when a man called out,
"Everything's harder with a ring
on."
A man wrote a letter to the
IRS: i "I have been unable to
sleep knowing that I cheated on
my taxes. I have enclosed a
check for $200. If I still can't
sleep, I'll send the rest."
A farming community was
going through a drought, which
prompted a visiting preacher to
pray for rain. The following
day it rained so hard it ruined
the crops.
"That's what happens when
you get a preacher that' isn't fa-
miliar with agriculture," said
one farmer.
A friend is one who remem-
bers your birthday but not
which birthday it is...
THE COOK'S CORNER
Clam and Corn Chowder
1 can ,!,10-3/4 ox:) ,cllaim,
chowder ,
2 strips cooked bacon
1/2 c. frozen corn
1/8 c. chopped red onion


thyme for garnish
Add corn to your favorite
clam chowder and simmer for
three to four minutes. Top off
with crumbled bacon and
chopped onion. 'Garnish with
thyme and serve. Serves two.

To defy old age, just believe
that you're as good as you
never were...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
One of the easiest ways to
mend a hole in a garment is to
place a thin sheet of paper under
the hole and darn back and forth
with a sewing machine. When
the garment is washed the paper
will dissolve. This is ideal for
bed sheets with big tears or rips.

Don't save so much for rainy
days that you can't enjoy the
sunny ones...


QUIET REFLECTIONS
The Church Universal
I believe in the church univer-
sal, all denominations of it,
Catholic and Protestant and
Jewish. I believe in it because it
is the only institution, faulty as
it is, which has been created to,
keep God and Jesus alive in the
world, to hold up God's picture,
and to propagate God's words
and teaching. It has failed time
and again to be faithful to its
tasks; it has gone off into side
issues; it has emphasized wrong
angles of vision; it has been
guilty of wrong,action and ut-
terly twisted and perverted
aims; nevertheless with all its
faults I love it arid believe in it
still, because it is the chief
dwelling place on earth of my
Master and my Savior.
Burris A. Jenkins
I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: I
have a little plant called rev-
erence in the corner of my


soul's garden, which I love. to
have watered once a week...

It was another great day. We
welcomed the World War II
Vets and their mates. How we
enjoy the days of meeting old
friends and making new ones.
We all do lots of cooking and
baking. Marie made a wonder-
ful strawberry dessert, Betty
Dillon came with her oh so


good coconut pie, and Goldie
made her famous egg custard.
There was a big pot of chicken
and cumplins, lots of good cas-
seroles, vegetables,. deviled
eggs, and so much more. Eve-
ryone told us how much they
enjoyed southern cooking and
we know that everyone went
home with a great feeling.
They had a speaker from the

Quilting did go on with the
members who weren't in the

back to Illinois. We will all
miss her and look forward to
seeing her in the fall.
It was so great to see Betty

She made another hanging that
we put on the front door back

Chiefland Man Is Pulled From

The Flooded Suwannee River By

Levy Deputies Near Clay Landing


By Cindy Jo Ayers
A very fortunate 58-year-old
Chiefland man was rescued
from the. Suwannee River last
Thursday, April 14'" after his
canoe overturned in the flooded
river. Levy County Deputy Tom
Martin received a call that
someone was calling for help
near the Clay Landing Boat
'Ramp.
When Deputy Martin arrived,
four people were at the boat
ramp and they reported hearing
someone yelling for help from
flooded woods on the river's
edge. Deputy Martin couldn't
see the stranded boater but he
said there were several people
across the river on the Dixie
County side who were yelling
and pointing. They could ap-
parently see the man who was
calling for help.
After radioing for backup,
Deputy Tom Martin entered the
river and swam out until he
could see the man who was
treading water. He swam to the
man, found his life vest near the
overturned canoe, and put the
vest on him.
Deputy Martin swam, pulling
Gerald P. Hutchinson of
Chiefland, to a nearby tree and
held him there. Because of the
swiftly moving current due to
the flooded condition of the
Suwannee, the deputy could not
pull Mr. Hutchinson to the
landing.
A second deputy .arrived on
the scene. Corporal Carl Rogers
put on his dive equipment and
entered the flooded river and
swam to Mr. Hutchinson and
also helped maintain him while
awaiting the arrival of the Sher-
iff's Department boat.
A Florida Fish and, Wildlife
Conservation Commission boat
arrived and pulled the victim
from the river. FWC Officers.
Dorvan Daniel and James Um-
hoefer took both deputies and
Mr. Hutchinson to the boat
landing.
The FWC. has asked people
not to boat on the flooded riders
in this area unt!l the flooding
subsides. This accident, caused
by someone who ignored the
warning and endangered the
very brave Levy County depu-
ties, is a good example of why
people shouldn't be boating at
this time.


Gilchrist Commission
Goes With Alexander
Group To Construct
Courthouse Expansion
(Continued from Page One)
construction.
McPherson told the board
that M M Parrish Construction
Co. had withdrawn from being
considered to construct the
courthouse addition.
The proposals the board
heard identified the experience
the contractor and the architect
had in constructing courthouse
and government facilities.
Gilchrist County, working in
cooperation with the Judicial
Complex Committee, identified
10,000 square feet of needed
space.
The Judicial Committee will
now begin communicating with
the .contracting group to
determine the best design and
where the additions would be
best located.
John McPherson pointed out
that if Gilchrist County cannot
negotiate a satisfactory building
program, the county can then go
to the number two selected
group.
The architects and
construction group estimate that
the additions could be
completed within 12 to 18
months.


Livestock Assistance
Program Announced
Eligible producers may now
sign up at the Gilchrist-Dixie
FSA County Office for USDA's
Livestock Assistance Program,
announces Wendy G. Luzader,
County Executive Director.
Due to several ongoing pro-
grams, Mrs. Luzader strongly
encourages producers to call the
office and schedule an appoint-
ment. This will save you time


and many of the forms can be
prepared and ready for your re-
view.
Eligible producers must meet
all of the following require-
ments for the applicable year
which is 2004.
Owned or leased graz-


ing land in a county or part of
a county approved for LAP;
Suffered 40 percent or
greater grazing loss for three
consecutive months during
the LAP payment period ap-
proved for the county;
Meet either of the fol-
lowing: Possess a beneficial
interest in eligible livestock,
have a financial risk in the
eligible livestock, ..and is a
citizen of, or legal resident
alien in the United States; and
Is a farm cooperative, private
domestic corporation, part-
nership, or joint operation in
which a majority interest is
held by members, stockhold-
ers, or partners who are citi-
zens of, or legal resident ali-
ens in the United States if this
cooperative, corporation.,
partnership, or joint operation
owns or jointly owns live-
stock..
Producers with eligible live-
stock meeting the above must
certify all of the following on
form CCC-740 Application:
Percent of grazing
losses for each type of graz-
ing.
Number of eligible
livestock by livestock type
and weight class
Acquisition date of
livestock if livestock are ac-
quired less than three months
before the beginning of the
payment period, or disposed
of before the end of the pay-
ment period.
*. Number of grazing
acres for each type of grazing
that support eligible livestock,
as certified on form FSA-578,
Report of Acreage. The pro-
ducer shall certify ALL graz-
ing acres.
The members and advisors of
the local FSA County Commit-
tee, county office staff and I are
pleased to be able to provide
these benefits to our producers
and will attempt to do so as
quickly as possible. Natural
disasters are unpredictable
weather events that put our
farmers and ranchers at risk, as
they work to produce a depend-
able and affordable national
food supply.
This program will provide re-
lief to livestock producers who
have suffered grazing losses in
2004 due to drought, severe
weather, hurricanes and related
causes, and have limited safety
nets and risk management tools
available.
To speed up the process. pro-
ducers may sign up for these
programs online from their
home or business at any USDA
Service Center across the na-
tion. To sign up online, produc-
ers must first establish an e-
authentication identity in their
local Service Center. Currently,
producers can also sign up only
for other programs such as the
Loan Deficiency Payment Pro-
gram and the Direct and
Counter-Cyclical Payment Pro-
gram. '
The LAP was authorized by
the Military Construction and
Appropriations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Appro-
priations Act, 2005 (2005-Act),
to provide disaster assistance for
producers who suffered losses.
The 2005 Act provides that
producers who reduced the
number of livestock because of
a natural disaster shall not be
penalized for those'reductions.
If, because of a natural disaster,
a producer sold eligible live-
stock that were placed on graz-
ing land (LAP) on or after Janu-
ary 31, 2003, the producers will
receive compensation for the.
entire payment period. Benefits
will be based on the number of
livestock the producer would
have owned if the disaster had
not occurred. For livestock that
was sold in the course of routine
business, producers will receive
benefits for those animals only
up to the date of sale.
Producers of dairy and beef
cattle, bison and beefalo, goats;
swine; sheep; and certain
equine, elk, and reindeer are
now eligible to participate.
The LAP is a grazing loss
program that will pay eligible
livestock producers for grazing
losses on a per head basis of
eligible livestock. Assistance is
limited to persons with a gross
revenue limit of $2.5 million,
which is a change from the pre,


vious LAP. A $40,000 person
payment limitation also applies.
The Gilchrist-Dixie FSA Of-
fice is located at 4949 SW SR
26 in Trenton.. The telephone
number is 352-463-2358.


State And Federal
School Requirements
Make Changes
Necessary
(Continued from Page One)
school programs and are trying
to decide how to make the best
use of our existing resources.
This may mean more innovative
teaching strategies that will take
advantage of technologies that
are now available. They are
looking into expanding the use
of interactive TV systems used
to teach classes between our two
high schools. Virtual school
and online courses may be used
to increase the dual-enrollment
courses offered with Lake City
Community College. The class-
room schedules for high school
may be modified. And for our
district to meet the state man-
dates for class size, reading in-
struction and high performance,
the district must consider mov-
ing its teaching resources. The
shift will ensure that the ele-
mentary schools stay compliant.
Yes, there will be some changes
within our schools soon and

some programs may be affected.
Mr. Vickers and Dr. Surrency
know the importance of the pro-
grams our schools offer and that
is why they have a team of indi-
viduals gathering data about
each program.
So that's it in a "nutshell"
(literally). Each item that our
school district must comply
with has multiple requirements
that need to be addressed differ-
ently yet in the end all work to-
gether. Each individual issue
affects the others so there really
is a "Big Picture." This article
provides you with a little more
truth than perhaps what you had
heard in the rumors. However,
this information is not meant to
give you, the parent, everything
you "Need to Know."
The best thing we as parents
can do for our students is to
come to the school board meet-
ings. The next meeting will
have more information about
these issues. It is scheduled for
Tuesday, May 3rd at 3:00 p.m.
As of today, our district has to
make projected recommenda-
tions. However, they do not
even have FCAT scores back
yet. If you feel frustrated, just
imagine how they feel, it's not
easy!


Love is its own reward; hate
is its own punishment. The sur-
est way to get rid of an enemy is
to make that person your friend.

the dream monsters from the

It is better to wear out doing
good than to rust out doing little
or nothing.


Courage and perseverance
have a magical talisman, before
which difficulties disappear and
obstacles vanish into air.
