Meeting On Deer-Dog Belly Day Saturday

Hunting Program At Fanning Springs

Expansion At State Park

Tommy Usher The 10th Annual Red Belly adRcand Rc nlett, So
TD VY will be. held thi.) RntnLr Jnv 1. SJ/I -d Df- P ,4 1


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC) North Central Region is
holding two public meetings to
discuss the proposed statewide
expansion of the deer-dog
hunting registration program.
This is in response to a deci-
sion by FWC Commissioners
during the April Commission
meeting held in Tallahassee,
where they voted to move for-
ward with the statewide expan-
sion of the registration program
for deer-dog hunting on private
lands for the 2005-06 hunting
season. Commissioners based
the decision on the overall suc-
cess of the pilot program in the
Northwest Region during the
2004-05 hunting season.
The first meeting is set for
May 10th in Chiefland at the
Tommy Usher Community
Center, 506 S.W. Fourth Ave-
nue, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
The second meeting will be held
May 12th in Lake City at the
Columbia County School Board
Auditorium, 528 W. Duval
Street, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30
p.m.
"The purpose of these two
meetings will be to provide in-
formation about the registration
process and the success of the
pilot project in the Northwest
Region," said Roland Garcia,
Regional Director for the North
Central Region.
This proposed program would
require a no-cost registration for
anyone using deer-dogs on pri-
vate property statewide during
the deer-dog training season and
during any. open deer-hunting
season when the taking of deer
with dogs is permitted.
In a report presented to the


seven-member Commission,
FWC staff recommended state-
wide expansion with no signifi-
cant rule changes due to the
program'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.
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
hunting clubs.
During the past hunting sea-
son in the Northwest Region,
there were 87 deer-dog hunting
complaints, down 36 percent
from 137 during the 2003-04
hunting season. Only five of
these 87 complaints were asso-
ciated with registered deer-dog
hunting clubs. In contrast, a re-
view of the complaint data for
the North Central and Northeast
regions reflected an increase in
complaints.
The FWC will focus on
making sure the public is fully
informed about the new regis-
tration program by doing a-
comprehensive mail-out to dog-
hunting clubs. A final report
that includes any comments re-
ceived at the upcoming public
meetings will be on the agenda
for consideration at the FWC's
June 15th to 17th meeting in


ijay will ue lltu ullJ auluraay,
April 30th in Fanning Springs.
This event will be held in the
Fanning Springs State Park
where Highway 19 crosses the
Suwannee River.
This year's event will have
exciting features, including a
fishing contest. The fishing
contest will be held on Friday,
April 29h' from 6:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. The contest continues on
Saturday, April 30th from 6:00
a.m. to 3:00 p.m. with weigh-in
at the Suwannee River Wayside
Park.

tertainment throughout the day
in the park. These bands include
Dock Street Band, Dotti South

Arbor Day Tree
Planting Advice
National Arbor Day is just
around the corner, April 29th
Everyone grab a shovel and get
ready to plant a tree. But
wait....
Before planting a tree make
sure you know how to do it cor-
rectly, advises the International
Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
How a tree is planted, and ini-
tially maintained, makes all the
difference in the world. Too
many people are content to sim-
ply plant a tree, but don't ensure
that the tree has the chance to go
on to live for many years.
"Planting a tree is making an
investment in the future," says
Sharon Lilly, ISA Educational
Director. "You must care for
and nurture your young tree so
that it will pay dividends for
years to come."
Tree Planting Tips
There are a few simple tips to
remember when planting your
tree this spring:
Prepare the perfect hole for


Group For Courthouse Expansion


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission's decision to
award the Design Build
Services of the Gilchrist County
Courthouse expansion to the
Alexander Group was based on
an agreement that all of the
parities involved agreed to.
John McPherson, Gilchrist
County attorney, explained that
the county commission's
responsibility is to rank the
three top construction and
architectural firms that
presented proposals for
consideration for the estimated
$2 million project. "Once the
board reached their decision in
ranking the three proposals, it
would be those rankings that
would be used to reach a final
ranking. The five-member
board's decision, after being
calculated, was based on the
gross score of each of the six
categories they were judged on.
The .hre c .n ,triuction proposal
presentations were scored on
Understanding and Approach 25
percent, Experience and


Qualifications 20 percent, Past
Performance on Projects 20
percent, Ability to Meet Time
and Budget 20 percent,
Location of Firm 10 percent and
Minority Business certified 5
percent.
McPherson announced that
there was a tie between
Alexander Group LLC of
Newberry, Florida and Gray
Construction Services, Inc. of
Trenton. Each one of the two
applicants had a score of nine
points. Charles Perry
Construction had a final score
of 12 points.
McPherson explained in the
meeting that the individual
gross scores from each of the
five commissioner's score
sheets would be used for the
purpose of ranking the three
proposals. Neither the board nor
the staff made any provision for
dealing with a tie of the
proposals prior to the meeting.
McPherson explained that
the tie could possibly be
eliminated if the third ranked
proposal was eliminated and the.


tabulated rankings be added
again.
McPherson asked the board
and the three representatives
from each of the proposing
companies that were still in the
meeting if they were in
agreement with the method that
was proposed to break the tie.
None of the individuals or
representatives spoke up in
regards to their disapproval of
the proposal.
When the rankings were
recalculated, McPherson
explained that the Alexander
Group had received a score of
seven and Gray Construction
received a score of eight.
McPherson explained that the
lowest number represented the
highest ranked proposal.
McPherson further explained
in a letter to Gray Construction
Services, Inc, after careful
consideration of this matter,
including consultation with
other staff members for
Gilchrist County and the eighth
judicial .circuit courthouse
administration, it is my
conclusion that the ranking as
set forth at the April 18t
meeting should not be altered.

when Bill got a bite that took
the tip of his six-foot fiberglass
rod to the water line. The
experienced angler quickly
recovered and brought the rod
tip back up to eye level. The
bout continued until they could
see an image down deep in the
water that appeared to be a sea
turtle. Bill worked the turtle
right on up to the surface of the
water where we could see the
turtle had bit the jig and had the
hook caught in the top, center
portion of his mouth. After we
finally got the 150-pound turtle
over to boat side, I grabbed him
by the right front flipper and
held him while the guys got the
hook out of his mouth.
When the turtle was turned
loose, it slowly swam away

from the boat, not in any big
hurry. Several minutes later the
turtle came up to the surface
again and took several loud
breaths. It continued to swim
around on the surface for 15-20
seconds before it took a dive
back to the deep.
I have seen a lot of turtles
while fishing offshore, but
this is the first time that I
have ever been in a boat
when one was caught on a
hook and line.
Our English mate was
great fun as we enjoyed his
English accent and his
excitement when we were all
catching fish.
The weather was beautiful
and the seas were flat for
most of the day until late in
the afternoon. We tried to
stay as long as we could, and
we determined that we had
actually stayed too long
when iwe had to fight the
wind and waves on our
return home.
This day was enjoyable
and the experience was a
pleasure.


A Letter To
The Editor
Regarding the recent invoice
for fencing used during the SE
70th Avenue paving project, my
congratulations are given to
Commissioners Durden and
Thomas for voting against the
approval. I am surprised, how-
ever, that the seemingly inflated
invoice was a surprise. Was
this job not put out to bid? If it
was, and this was the lowest
bid, then why the surprise at the
amount?
The statement that payment
would be reimbursed by reve-
nues from a Department of
Transportation grant leaves me
with another question. Was the
grant for that specific project or
for county road projects in gen-
eral? If it was for non-specific
road projects then it should not
be wasted on what appears to be
an inflated fencing job. I have
to travel on what is becoming an
impassable road (SE 70th Ave-
nue, south of SR 26) and we're
told that there's no money
available for repairs!
When commissioners vote to
spend money, they should ask
themselves if they would spend
that much if it was coming out
of their own pockets. Just re-
member that any and all money
coming from government is
coming out of our pockets via
taxes. Our elected officials
need to act responsibly and get
the most for each and every
dollar that is entrusted to them.
Sincerely,
Rosemary McDaniel


Letter To The Editor
I would like to comment on
the article last week "Gilchrist
Commission Gives Impact Fee
Proposals to a Committee for
Further Study."
SI have been in business most
of my adult life, and I support
our business leaders and inves-
tors. Businesses have a positive
impact on our community. They
provide jobs that are conven-
iently located, pay county taxes
with no exemptions, and gener-
ate revenue that increases the
local economy. As citizens,

Joseph W. Gilliam
Q: Is there a waiting period
in the state of Florida for get-
ting married after a couple
applies for a marriage li-
cense? Are blood tests re-
quired, and do you have to
apply in the county you live
in? Can a minor apply for a li-
cense?
A: Florida law imposes a 3-day
waiting period. However, if both
parties have taken a 4-hour pre-
marital preparation course given
by a minister, or counselor who
is registered with the Clerk of the
Circuit Court, the waiting period
is waived and the license fee is
reduced. If only one applicant
took the course, the waiting pe-
riod is still required.
If neither applicant is a Florida
resident, the waiting period is not
required. If one applicant is not
a Florida resident, and the other


give donations and support local
causes, and to participate in
community activities and issues.
As population growth occurs,
and distribution networks ex-
pand to the area, there will be a
need for new warehouse space. I
explained to the board I wasn't
talking about regional distribu-
tion centers like Dollar General,
or Wal-Mart located in Alachua,
but smaller buildings (5,000-
20,000 square feet) will be
needed for most distribution fa-
cilities. Distribution warehous-
ing provides a good tax base
with minimal demand on county
services.
I own industrial property, and
I related my experience with
two business models to the
board as examples of how pre-
sent impact fees maik Gi"christ

tracing new businesses. The
commissioners all agree the pre-
sent impact fees for businesses
are prohibitive. Remove these
penalizing fees, and an increase
in jobs, revenue, and tax base
will result. It will be known
unequivocally that Gilchrist
County government supports
existing and new businesses.
This is the only option to help
balance our tax base, and lessen
the burden on homeowners to
pay for essential services in the
future.
The proposed impact fees for
new residential construction
will pay only 25 percent of
identified funding needs. We
have nothing to lose. If remov-
ing the impact fee doesn't at-
tract new businesses, no new
businesses would have gener-
ated zero impact fees anyway. I
did not disclose the fact my
property would be a good site
for a new commercial business,


is a Florida resident and has
taken the premarital course, the
waiting period is not required. A
judge can waive the delayed ef-
fective date for good cause.
Blood tests have not been re-
quired since this test was abol-
ished October 1, 1986. A mar-
riage license may be applied for
and solemnized in any Florida
county. Minors, who under oath,
swear that they are parents or
expectant parents of a child may
apply. The pregnancy must be
verified by a written statement
from a licensed physician. Apre-
viously married minor may also
apply. A person age 16 or 17 may
apply with the consent of both
parents or guardian, unless the
parents are divorced and only
one parent.has full custody.
Once received, the marriage
license is good for 60 days. If the
marriage is delayed and the li-
cense expires, the couple can ei-
ther re-apply or request an ex-
tension throughjudicial action.

Gilchrist County
Woman's Club News
Thank.you to Sharon Bard
and the program committee and
all the ladies who did a great job
for the mother/daughter dinner
honoring the outstanding sen-
iors from Trenton and Bell high
schools.
The tables were decorated in
all the spring colors with beauti-
ful flowered centerpieces which
were also gifts to everyone who
had a butterfly on their program.
Lois Scott, president, gave
bright red roses, which is the
club flower, to our guests.
Pamela Morse won the door
prize which was a lovely framed
.hammered flower arrangement,
donated by Sharon Bard.
The program for the evening
was presented by Mark Gluck-
man. He gave a wonderful talk
on the changes taking place in
Gilchrist County especially in
the agricultural industry. He
showed his beautiful pen and
ink drawings of the barns in the
area of which a number have
been torn down since he started
his drawings of old barns.
Thank you Mark for sharing
your artwork with us.
The highlight of the evening
was having each student intro-
duce themselves and their guest
as well as telling of their future
plans.
Congratulations and God
bless all the graduating students
from Gilchrist County.

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
Have you read the Da Vinci
Code? If you haven't been
asked that yet,. you are .one 6f
the few people who have not
been asked the question. You
may not have read this novel
which has caused so much con-
troversy. Two.authors, Carl E.
Olson and Sandra Miesel have
written a new book, The Da
Vinci Hoax. In this book, they
state on page 28, "Brown appar-
ently hopes The Da Vinci Code
will be more than just a best
seller; he wants it radically to
change perceptions of history,
religion, -and Western civiliza-
tion." Remember this is a direct
quote.
For the beginning reader this
week I recommend Flik the In-
ventor about an ant who saw
that his worker friends needed
something to help them in gath-
ering food for the ant colony.
Have you heard the expression,
"Necessity is the mother 'of in-
vention?" It was true in this
story.
The junior age book I chose
was from the nonfiction shelf,
Leonardo Da Vinci about a fa-
mous artist who was also an in-
ventor, painter and scientist.


At Bell Library we are up
dating our files. We are re-
questing that if you do not have
a library card that you come by
and get one. After April 18,
2005 we will be asking to see
your card before you can check
out any books. We are still
working on our overdue lists. If
you have any books that belong
to Bell Library, please get these
books back to us. Remember
we have a drop window and
there is never an overdue fee.
We hope you visited us this
week for open house.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well, April showers may
bring May flowers but you tell
me what April frost brings.
Now really, enough is
enough...88' oneday and 33'
the next. I mean to tell you that
once ribbons of purple, laven-
der, pink, white and .shades in
between of phlox stretch for
miles on end along the road,
fields and highways, Old Man
Winter should take the hint and
pack his bags and get out of
town, once and for all.
Now, the poor roses out front
are pulling their petals up tight,
trying to keep warm and my
second two broods of naked
bluebird babies must be having
a hard time keeping their little
beaks from chattering. Of
course, it doesn't phase the
squirrels at all. In fact, if any-
thing, it's made them more
devilish than ever. Last evening
they knocked two bird feeders
out of the sweet gum tree and
gobbled up every last morsel.
We are so blessed to live in
this area of Florida where we
can really appreciate the beauty
of the changing seasons. We
are blessed with a profusion of
color throughout the spring,
summer and fall. And while our
winters are often bleak and
dreary, there is a beauty about
the starkness, silhouetted .against
the evening sky. And what a
blessing to have a chance to see
God's critters up close... the
birds, butterflies, deer, turtles,
coons, foxes and the list goes on
and on.
With so many people moving
in and so much land being
cleared, it breaks my heart to
think that when our grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren
are as old as dirt they won't be
able to sit.in, asw.ing of an eve-
Sig and:watch .-. h a joyful
heart, an endless parade of
creatures venturing forth.
And don't you love those
cool mornings when everything
is glistening, wet with dew and
whole families of deer are out
for a stroll and foraging on crisp
green plants? I don't even mind
if they're mine. They're no
more trouble to me than those
pesky squirrels.
The sounds and songs of na-
ture are a blessing as well. The
wind in the pines, the birds all
singing, in an ever-changing
choir, the frogs after a rain and
around my pond, the mating call
of Gators over in the wetlands
and the distant calls of coyotes.
How sterile and still our
world would be without them.
But then I suppose they will be
replaced with miles of concrete
buildings with manicured lawns
and iron gates. Who knows, we
may even get used to honking
horns, sirens, and the noisy
wheels of progress.. I hope not.
We've already gotten used to
too much of man's madness.
We need to stop and smell the
roses because before long there
may be no roses to smell.
But on Wednesday, April
20th, 22 Joyful Hearts did just
that...so to speak. Stopping to
smell the roses doesn't have to
be taken literally. It's taking
time to enjoy the things in life


that have true value and mean-
ing...such as spending time
with friends and that we did.
Diana Lynn is coming right
along with the lovely cross-
stitch on which she is working
and Rita Simcoe was busy em-
broidering old-fashioned ladies
on quilt squares. Barbara Strom
was going to town on her
chicken scratch squares which
reminds me that I've got to find
mine that I started and get to
work on it. I just love what the
end result is and still can't be-
lieve it's not really lace.
Evelyn Wood, Ann Mangone
and Elaine Nemeth worked like
beavers on the club quilt on the
frame. Elaine also laid out the
quilt squares for our up-coming
club quilt so we could decide on
a color to go with it. The
squares of hats, fans, shoes and
purses are quite interesting and
will be a challenge to match to-
gether.
Elaine's friend, Edith, is still
visiting and she showed off her
finished "Martha's Homecom-
ing" poncho but spent her time
crocheting a baby afghan. Ruth
Wilkerson was knitting a baby
blanket so we had the baby cor-
ner covered.
Ann Taylor and I continued
to work on our embroidery
projects. It always seems to
take longer to do than you'd
think. Barbara Myrick was cro-
cheting squares for'an afghan
and Heidi Kamp showed us a
good idea for using up odds and
ends of yarn by crocheting them
into long strips of irregular
shapes and putting it all together
to make a throw...very unique
and colorful. 'She brought two
friends with her, Sylvia Arthur
and Madeline Norman. She
was teaching them how to cro-
chet. We're always glad to
have visitors and hope they will
come again.
We were glad to have Lera
Townsend back in our midst
and she busied herself with a
piece of embroidery she is go-
ing all in blue for her daughter.
Marvine Deer was crocheting
while Matty Turner spent her
time being cheerful and visit-
ing... and that's all you need to
do sometimes.
Of course that steadfast group
of Swedish weavers was hard at
it. Bonnie Edwards is coming
.right alang with hers as is Lu
,R>',' rij d', Jacki le .h-j'.' Jand
none other than Alice Binns.
Geneva Carver, who has been
quite ill, was there and I'm
sorry to say this will be her last
time for,a while. She is moving
to Dowling Park up in Live
Oak. Her sister, Surena May
and brother-in-law, John May,
live there so it is a happy occa-


352-578-4735


sion on the one hand but she
will be missed. We hope that
she and Sureha will come join
us from time to time.
Elaine shared a craft with us
that she saw on TV It was just
lovely. You place colorful
flowers and leaves, in a pleasing
arrangement on a piece of cot-
ton, muslin, percale, etc. fabric.
Then you cover all the flowers
and leaves with wide masking
tape. You place the material on
a flat piece of wood then take a
hammer or mallet and hammer
the whole area of leaves and
flowers. The color from the
flowers and leaves is left on the
material and is lovely. You
could tell the pansies, daffodil
,and wildflowers. You then take
a fine-line marker and make an
outline like a quilting stitch
around it. It won't be washable
so it would be best framed un-
der glass...try it.
We talked about many things.
Geneva's church, New Hope,
was having Geneva Carver Day
on Sunday the 24th. We were all
invited to join in the event and
Bonnie, Rita, Evelyn Ann T.,
Ann M., Elaine, Edith and my-
self, were all there to celebrate
and share in some great country
cooking.


We also talked about our na-
ture "Make It and.Take It" and
"Ice Cream Social" day at Mary
Lou's on Wednesday the 27'.
We decided that we're not as
young as "I" think we are and
so, remembering how hard it
was the last time we made three
churns of homemade ice cream
to... yea, yea, yea, wimp out
and buy it. But it will taste just
as good and we'll be able to
move our arms the next day.
After lunch we sang "Happy
Birthday" to Lera, our only
April birthday. She shared her
lemon cake with lemon icing
and coconut with us and Geneva
shared a going away cake as
well. By then we were all as
full as ticks and ready to go
home and take a nap.
Oh yes, I nearly for-
got...Cathy Strom called us
from Hawaii where she and
hubby have been vacationing
for several weeks. We were
glad to hear from her and that
they were having a ball. I'm
sure she'll have lots of pictures
and stories to share...if they de-
cide to drag themselves home.
Our next regular meeting is
Wednesday, May 4th. Hope
everyone will be fit as a fiddle
and able to make it. And re-

Bell Middle/High School students gather as guests of the Tabard Inn for the upcoming
performance of an adaptation of Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Performances will
be Thursday through Saturday, May 5th 7"' in the Iris Roberts Auditorium. Shown
from left are Rebecca Wrobel, Cody Hart, Zach Lynn, Brittney Baker, Matt White,


and Samantha Fowler.
The Canterbury Tales
To Be Performed
May 5
,The Bell High School Drama
Program is putting the final
touches on its spring produc-
tion: a stage adaptation of Geof-
frey Chaucer's The Canterbury
Tales, -written by Gary Sadaro
and directed by Cynthia Frigon,
English and Drama teacher.
In the year 1380, a group of
English pilgrims are trapped to-
gether at an inn because the
main bridge is washed out.
Chaucer, one of the travelers,
suggests that pilgrims tell sto-
ries to pass the time. The Can-
terbury Tales is a collection of
stories with morals, oi lessons,
that are acted out by the guests
at the inn.
Bell High School's version of
The Canterbury Tales show-
cases the many talents of the 30


plus students involved. Original
music was written and per-
formed by Tim Trail. The cos-
tumes and the original logo
were designed by Brittney
Baker. The set was designed
and constructed by Mindy Can-
non and Jennifer Whitwood.
And the soundtrack, containing
both original pieces by Tim and
borrowed contemporary pieces
and sound affects, was engi-
neered by Lucas Moore. Two
of our seniors, Lucas Moore and
Erin White, each individually


directed one of the tales.
The Canterbury Tales will be
performed on Thursday, May 5"
at 7:00 p.m. and Friday and Sat-
urday, May 6th and 7th, at 8:00
p.m. in the Iris Roberts Audito-
rium at Bell High School. The
cost is $3 for students and $4
for adults. T-shirts bearing
original student artwork will
also be on sale for $12.50.
Please come support the per-
forming arts in Gilchrist
SCounty!

Bell High School
Criminal Justice
Team Successful In
First Competition
The Bell High School Crimi-
nal Justice Group traveled to
Ocala April 12th through 15th for
the state Criminal Justice Com-
petition. Twenty-one juniors,
sophomores,- and freshmen at-
tended the conference where
they competed in a number of
different competitions. Areas of
competition included forensic-
investigation, firearms, traffic
stops, prepared speaking, and
many more.
This was the first year that the
Bell High School students have
attended this conference and the
students were really nervous
about competing. They were
not really sure what to expect.
Advisors and state officers
found it hard to believe that our
students were attending for the
first time; and from such a small
school. Those leaders were
very impressed with the behav-
iors and attitudes of the students
from our school.
The students proved to be a
force to be reckoned with. The
following is a list of accom-
plishments from our school.
First place Forensic livesti-
gation Team 1 (Wynn Smith,
Jennifer Zerbe, Amber Hodge);
Fifth place Forensic Investiga-
tion Team 2 (Mark Jackson,
Emily Hetherington, and Krys-
tal Whitley); First place Pre-
pared Public Speaking (Jennifer
Zerbe); Third place Prepared
Public Speaking (Megan Hard-
ing); Second place Individual
Firearms (Mark Jackson);
Fourth place Firearms Team
(Todd Scaggs, Mark Jackson,
Austin Hilliard, Alan Aderholt);
Third place Accident Report
Writing (Kirby Davis); Fifth
place Obstacle Course (Todd
Scaggs); Overall School Per-
formance Fourth in the State
(17 total schools in attendance).
Students learned a great deal
and are planning on being better
prepared next year to show the
other schools what the Bell
High School Criminal Justice is
made of.

Dear Parents and Students:
To encourage reading this
summer as well as all the time,
the BES Library is having a
book exchange week (May 9
through May 13). We know that
almost everyone has a bookshelf
full of children's books. We
also know that most of these
books have been read to your
children many times. Some of
your books are treasured, but
you may have a few children's
books that you could part with.
Before our book exchange week
(May 2-6), we are asking you to
send only CLEAN, WELL
TAKEN CARE OF books from
your bookshelf to the library to
exchange for another book. If
your child brings in three books,
they will be able to pick out
.three other books. They may
bring from one to three books to
exchange. This will give your
child and other children the
chance to have some new books
to read that they have not al-
ready read. We will also have
many new books mixed in with
the exchange books. These
books have been provided by:

GREETINGS
This pretty calico colored cat
belongs to Doris Noble of
Franklin, North Carolina ard I
thank Doris for allowing me to
feature "Pumpkin" in my col-
umn. Doris writes that someone
had dropped this kitty on the
road near where she and hus-
band Don lived. Being it was in
October (pumpkin time), when
they found her, they decided, to
name her "Pumpkin." Don
(whom is deceased now), took
ownership of her and she was a
great comfort to him during his
illness. Now, of course, Doris
finds "Pdmpkin" in the same
manner and she's so glad she
has her. She states that "Pump-


kin thinks she's the queen of the
ranch." Well, this cat is pretty
enough to be a queen. She is
now five years old.
"Keep in touch Doris and
keep that camera rolling and
share more photos of Pumpkin
with me and my readers."

With a good hobby you can
find yourself and lose yourself
at the same time...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Here's the reason a person
who suffers for another's deeds
is called a "Scapegoat."
The Book of Leviticus in the
Bible tells how on the Day of
Atonement the sins of the peo-
ple were symbolically placed
upon the head of a goat and the
"goat" was then allowed to "es-
cape" into the wilderness. Thus
the term "scapegoat" literally
means "escaping goat."

Patience is never more impor-
tant than when you are at the
edge of losing it...

RIB TICKLERS
My wife desperately wanted a
parrot. When she found one ad-
vertised in the paper, we went to
meet it. The owner, however,
admitted that the bird had one
annoying habit. "He has
learned to mimic the ear-
piercing sound of the smoke
alarm," he said. "But don't
worry. For some reason, he
only repeats it when my wife is
in the kitchen."

You've never seen two
greener recruits than Fred and
me the day we arrived for basic
training. We were immediately
assigned guard duty, and soon
after, Fred was approached by
an officer.
"Halt! Who goes there?"
Fred shouted.

The officer identified himself
and waited for a response. And
waited...

you remember what comes
next?"
"No," Fred yelled back.
"And you're not taking another
step until I do."

his next utility bill.
I told him I'd do what I could.
As I took down his information,
he raised an excellent question.
"Why," he asked dolefully,
"Do they call it 'fixed income'
when I'm broke all the time?"

"How's it going?" I asked a
regular customer as he stepped
into my coffee shop.
"Not that great," he answered.,
"I'm looking for a new job."
"What happened to the one
that you had at the spice fac-
tory?"
"Oh, that," he said. "It was
just seasonal."

Q: Why did the Pope cross
the road?
A: He crosses everything.

Beauty to me, is about being
comfortable in your own
skin...

Too many people spend
money they haven't earned, to
buy things they don't want, to
impress people they don't
like...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
The bottom of an overall or
pant's leg makes a wonderful
carryall bag. Sew up one end,
attach an overall suspender or a
denim strip as a handle, and
there you have it.

The best way to predict the


future is to invent it...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
God My Redeemer
In all my ventures where I
succeed,
You bring me hope, anew,
And through the failures I
endure,
This deepens my trust in You.
When I am happy, I know
You're there -
I feel Your spirit within;
It restores my faith, soothes my
soul,
Where doubt and fear had been.
In all the great triumphs of man,
As in all I've ever dreamed,
I see the steadfast love of God,
And in Him my life's redeemed.

POST 91 NEWS
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander. Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Post 91 will hold the yearly elections at the May meeting on Saturday,
May 14. The meeting will begin at 10:00 AM, but the pancake breakfast
will begin at 08:00 AM. Bring your family, friends and a fellow veteran
with you, but most important of all, BRING YOURSELF! Post 91 is
about to begin a new year, with new officers, although many of the faces
are the same, just different titles. Come out on the second Saturday of the
month, eat breakfast with your fellow Legionnaires, listen to the news of
the Post's programs and needs, and see where you can fit in to the
programs for this community you live in. The programs of the American
Legion are as varied as the Legionnaires that make up this American
Legion. There are programs for youth, for veterans and for our
community overall. Post 91 does community service, raises money for
scholarships for gradilating seniors, assists some of our local veterans as
well as someof our local families, that are in need. Post 91 has been
approved by the Red Cross as an Emergency Shelter and some of our
Legionnaires have been certified to run those shelters, as well as certified
to perform some first aid and CPR. American Legion Post 91 and many
members of the Post stand ready throughout the community in many
different guises to assist the citizenry in many ways. Many of our
Legionnaires "wear other hats" in the community and might not be
known as a Legionnaire, much less as a veteran. Legionnaires, come out
to the Post on the second Saturday of the month, support the donation
breakfast, stay for the meeting, and let us become more visible in our
community by working together for the community.
If you have a son that might be interested in "working alongside Dad"
for the veteran, the community and our communities youth, there is the
Sons of the American Legion Squadron that has formed at the Post. The
SAL will meet immediately after the Legion meeting is over each
Saturday until the Squadron is sufficiently staffed to set it's own time and
day to meet. The SAL has programs of their own or they can work with
the Legion on Legion programs. There are many ways the Legion
'Family' can work together.
The American Legion Auxiliary meets on the second Thursday at 7:00
PM at the Post home on US-129 five miles north of Trenton. June 11,
2005, is the Installation day for Post 91. The breakfast will begin at 08:00
AM and the meeting will begin at 10:00AM. The business will be
conducted at the Executive Committee meeting to allow the Installations
of the Post Officers as well as the Charter Installations of the Auxiliary
Unit 91 and the Sons of the American Legion Squadron 91. The Post
elections will take place at the May meeting. The floor will be open for
nominations for ALL offices. There is a slate of officers by the
Nominating Committee,' but if you feel there is a better candidate
available, nominations can be made from the floor at that time. The
candidate must be present and agree to run for the office nominated. All
volunteer hours MUST be turned in to the Post Adjutant. These hours
may include any hours for the Post, community, or the state. If you are
not sure, just put the hours down and Dean will figure it out. The end of
the year reports are due at Department very soon, so get those hours in.
Keep our troops all over this world in your thoughts and prayers each
day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widovs
and the families of those called to active duty, helping out where and
when we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

PUBLIC NOTICE


TOWN OF BELL, FLORIDA

3240 West Railroad Lane

P.O. Box 116

Bell, Florida


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

Arbor Day Tree
Planting Advice
(Continued from Page One)
them to absorb water.
Container-grown trees should
have the plastic or metal con-
tainers completely removed.
Carefully cut through any cir-
cling roots. Remove the top
half of pressed peat/paper con-
tainers.
Balled and Burlapped (B&B)
trees should have all of the
ropes cut. Pull the burlap at
least 1/3 of the way down; slit
remaining burlap to encourage
root growth. If in a wire basket,
cut away the top of the'basket.
Plant the Tree.
Gently place the tree in the
hole. Partially backfill with the
soil from the hole, water to set-
tle the soil, then finish back-
filling the hole. Tap the soil
gently, but do not step on the
root ball.
A few pointers
While you may have finished
planting, Arbor Day aficionados
should remember these final
touches:
Remove tags and la-
bels.
Do not stake unless the
tree has a large crown, or if
the planting is situated on a
site where wind or people
may push the tree over. Stake
for a maximum of one year.
Prune only the dam-
aged branches.
Soak the soil well,
making sure no air pockets
form between roots. Wait un-
til next year to fertilize.
Spread two to three
inches of mulch over the
planting area, but do not place
it up against the trunk.
Be sure the root ball
has plenty of water through-
out the year.
Anyone with questions re-
garding choosing the right tree
or proper planting and mainte-
nance is advised to contact an
ISA Certified Arborist. Ac-
cording to a survey of U.S. con-
sumers, eight out of ten believe
it is important to hire ISA Certi-
fied Arborists. ISA Certified
Arhorists have completed exten-
sive and rigorous testing to en-<
sure their knowledge on the lat-
est techniques in tree care, and
are required to pursue continu-
ing education units in order to
remain certified.
For additional information on
planting and other tree care
topics, the ISA has a complete
line of consumer education bro-
chures, which can be viewed at
www.treesaregood.com. To
purchase printed versions of
these brochures call the ISA of-
fice at 800-ISA-TREE or visit

AARP News
The chapter meeting of the
Gilchrist County AARP on
April 19h' was as lively as its
theme suggested. "Spring
Along" was all that and more.
There was a feeling of joyful
anticipation and Dr. Geneva
Cornwell, president, set the tone
by appearing in an Easter bunny
look that clearly said we were in
for a meeting that was different
from our usual monthly dose of
information on the main issues
affecting our futures.
Nancy Padgett, secretary,
took the hint and prefaced the
minutes of the last meeting with
an amusing account of the major
changes that have occurred in
the last 50 years. In other
words, during our lifetimes.
Great stuff Nancy.
Still, it is necessary to know
what is going on in the halls of
Congress, the State Capital, and
most importantly, in Gilchrist
County. The Gilchrist County

Hurricane, Flood
Prevention Grants To
Be Tax-Free
Florida residents who re-
ceived federal grants for hurri-
cane improvements won't have
to pay income taxes on the
money after all, thanks to a bill
co-sponsored by U.S. Bill Nel-
son that has passed the Senate.
The Senate approved the bill
by voice vote late Wednesday
night, April 13th. A similar ver-
sion, sponsored by U.S. Repre-
sent. Mark Foley, passed the
House March 14h.
The House still must give a
final okay, because the Senate
adopted an amendment that
changed the date of when the
tax exemption would take ef-
fect, spelling out that taxpayers
receiving grants in 2004 would
not be subject to tax. Once the
House does this, the president is
expected to sign the bill.
"The federal government
shouldn't be placing further fi-
nancial burdens on disaster vic-
tims," Nelson said. "Eliminat-
ing the disaster tax will further
help families get back on their
feet and provide them with
greater protection from the next
storm."
The legislation came in re-
sponse to a July ruling by the
Internal Revenue Service that
declared the grants taxable.
Since the ruling, many grant re-
cipients received tax notices,
some amounting to tens of thou-
sands of dollars.
In one case cited by senators,
a family that received a
$125,000 grant to improve their
home and prevent future storm
damage faced having to pay a
$28,000 tax bill.
The goal of the grants is to
help people in areas prone to
natural disasters, such as floods
and hurricanes, like Florida,
protect their homes and prop-
erty.

Journal is a good source of in-
formation but our committee
chairs pre-digest the news af-
fecting us as seniors and report
any changes for better or worse
and even they caught the mood
of the day telling jokes and
funny stories during their pres-
entations that had us all roaring
with laughter.
Iris Roberts, treasurer, re-
ported that there are 43 paid
members to date, but there is
still May for the members to
pay the $3.00 chapter dues. She
reminded us that in order to be-
come a chapter member, you
must be a national member.
Mr. Vernon Layfield an-
nounced that he had been a na-
* tional member for 20 years but
had become a chapter member
just today at this meeting. He
was warmly welcomed by all
those present. We hope that
others in the county will follow
his example and join our chap-
ter. We need to protect our in-
terests and understand the issues
concerning voting, locally and
nationally.
Legislative Chairman, Harold
Pope, reported the future of So-
cial Security is still being hotly
debated in Congress. The cur-
rent plan to diversify funding is
complicated and more will be
discussed in a later report. He
also said that bills were going
through the House and Senate
addressing the problem of sur-
veillance of child molesters on
probation. This in response to


the recent murders of two little
girls in Florida. Grandparents
can relate to how the anxiety
that this latest atrocity can affect
our peace of mind. Harold can
be counted upon to keep us in-
formed on all fronts concerning
how the actions of others affect
us.
Norman Conti, who wants us
all to live forever, distributed
telephone and e-mail numbers
that will put us in touch with
agencies and individuals who
can assist us for our health and
welfare needs. He has a mother
who relies on him to solve her
problems and in doing so he
passes on the results of his ef-
forts to us. In other words,
Norman is like a son to us all
and we appreciate all he is do-
ing for our benefit. Thank you
Norm.
Meveree Carlisle-Pope,
community service chairlady,
informed us of a safe drivers
class being offered in Trenton
and recommended that members
sign up in order to qualify for an
auto insurance discount. There
is to be an open house at the
Bell Library on April 26th and
she invited members to view the
remarkable improvements made
there.
Sunshine Chairlady Selma
Marlow asked members to call
her at 463-7296 if they know of
anyone who is sick or has lost a
loved one. She will send an ap-
propriate card on behalf of the
chapter members.

the front row are Kathleen Williams and Gert Wilson.


Alphonso Johnson, associate

a for profit organization is still
being promoted by Rep. Ed
Jennings in the Florida Legis-
lature. Call 850-488-5794 and
protest this if you think it is
