Gilchrist County staff and
county commissioners were
pleased to meet a representative
from the National Weather
Service that has provided them
with vital weather information
through some very tough times.
Al Sandrick a' meteorologist
with the National Weather
Service office in Jacksonville
assisted the county through the
hurricanes and tropical storms
of 2004. When the storms
slammed into Florida's east and
west coastlines, the county
emergency staff was manning
the emergency operations center
around the clock while they
received the latest storm
information from their friend Al
"The Storm Ready County
recognition is not a guaranteed
rubber stamp reward," Sandrick
explained to the commission in
the Monday afternoon meeting.
The National Weather Service
at this time has rejected three
counties in North Central
Florida that has worked to
achieve the recognition,
Sandrick explained. The
neighboring counties of Dixie
on the west coast and Alachua
county further inland to the east
are also "Storm Ready County".
"Al Sandrick has always
been a good friend of Gilchrist
County," explained Ron
McQueen, of Gilchrist
Emergency Management.
Gilchrist County received
this recognition after
establishing and completing a
Hazardous-Severe Weather Plan
for Gilchrist County. The
purpose of this plan is to
provide information and
guidance concerning emergency
communication functions,
information management,
warning notification and public
information considerations
within Gilchrist County.

Gilchrist Commission
Approves Resolution
To Adopt Fee Scale
For Fire Service
Special Assessment
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission adopted Resolution
05-13 Monday evening
establishing a rate schedule for
the Gilchrist County Fire
Service Special Assessment.
County attorney John
McPherson explained to the
board that he would like for the
commissioners to review the
resolution in detail and be
prepared to take final action in
August for the 2005-2006 fiscal

"We have always tried to
tailor the needs of the-citizens of
Gilchrist County to the Special
Assessment, explained County
Administrator Ron McQueen to
the board in 'the Monday
afternoon meeting.
At this time all of the fire
departments in the county are
staff with volunteers.
"This plan for Special
Assessment for fire service is
fair to all residents, property
owners and business in Gilchrist
County. This plan has been
revised several times to address
the public's concern regarding
many different aspects of the
plan, McQueen stated.
McQueen was asked what

Recently, the Secretary of De-
fense, Donald Rumsfeld an-
nounced that the President of
the United States has nominated
Navy Captain David L. Philman
for promotion to the rank of
Rear Admiral (1 star).
Captain Philman is currently
assigned to the Pentagon where
he is Director, Congressional
Appropriations Liaison. In this
capacity, he is the principal ad-
visor to the Secretary of the
Navy for budget and appropria-
tions matters and functions as a
direct liaison for the Secretary
with members of Congress.
A native of Bell, and the son
of the late Johnnie and Synthia
Philman, Captain Philman
graduated from the U.S. Naval
Academy in June 1978 with a
Bachelor of Science degree in
Operations Analysis. He was

currently in fire service in the
county. The Dixie County
native that has lived in Gilchrist
County for over 25 years has
been Fire Chief for that period
of time in the City of Fanning
Springs. McQueen through his
extensive experience with rural
county fire service has become
involved in state wide fire
service serving as the Vice
Chairman of Florida Fire
Service Committee.
Gilchrist County received a
final Fire Protection Study
report that was produced by
Mizelle, Hodges and
Associates, Inc. The report
indicated that Gilchrist County
is in need of extensive training
involving many more volunteers
to staff and become involved in
fire service in the county.
"I don't like the county

Deploying for extended peri-

charging for vacant properties in
the Special Assessment for fire
service," explained Commission
Sharon Akins Langford of
District 1."We are one of many
north Florida rural counties that
are at the 10 mill cap, the
$10.00 fee for each vacant
parcel only put a greater burden
on the tax payers in the county,"
she explained.
Mr. Robinson of Mizelle,
Hodges and Associates, Inc
explained to the board that
vacant properties do too catch
fire and they are often
unoccupied parcels. "I don't
share your view of vacant
properties being exempted," he
"I'm convinced that we must
charge for vacant land due to
the service provided for vacant
land or residential property is
the same," Commissioner

ods ten times, Captain Philman
has spent most of his flying ca-
reer in California and aboard
various aircraft carriers in the
Western Pacific and Indian
Oceans. He commanded the
FA-18 squadron, VFA-151, on-
board USS Constellation (1996-
97). More recently, however,
Captain 'Philman commanded
Carrier Air Wing 3 onboard
USS Harry S. Truman, home
ported in Norfolk, Virginia. As
the Airwing Commander, he
was responsible for the training,
manning and employment of the
assigned 70 tactical aircraft and
the 1,600 officers, sailors and
marines. He has logged over
4,300 hours in tactical aircraft
and has made over 1,000 carrier
arrested landings on 12 different

Randy Durden explained.
Commission Chairman
Mitchell Gentry agreed with
Commissioner Durden
regarding the charge for vacant
lands. He also complimented
Mr. Robinson for taking the
time to provide the county with
a complete fire protection study.
McQueen explained that
sometime it is the 5-acre parcel
next to the vacant land that is
where the fire starts. McQueen
added that the proposed charge
for vacant land began at $40 per
parcel and it has currently been
reduced to $10.00 per parcel.
Gilchrist County Clerk Joe
Gilliam brought out a fire study
that was produced by Ron
McQueen prior to 1986 when
the county first began to
consider a special assessment

A Letter To
The Editor
I am responding to "A Letter
to the Editor" in last week's
Journal regarding the state grant
paving project on SE 70th Ave-

this specific road project only.

statement that Rosemary

and get the most for each and
every dollar that is entrusted in
them." The SE 70th Avenue
project was put out for bid and
Craggs Construction Company
was the lowest bidder by ap-
,proximately $173,000. I was
not yet a commissioner when
the bid was approved. The
fences, gates, mailboxes, sod-
ding, fertilizer, and etc. that
were installed were part of the
SE 70t Avenue paving project
and the bid unit price for each
was included in Craggs Con-
struction Company's bid:.
I also agree that the price for
the fencing was too expensive,
but this was the unit price listed:.
in Craggs Construction Com-
pany's bid. If this invoice
would.not have been.approNed.
then the count\ could have had
to pay for it out of the county's,
General Reserve instead of be-
ing' paid out of the state grant
because Craggs Construction
was approved for the job.
I strive to make informed de-
cisions that help benefit the citi-
zens of Gilchrist County. If I
can be of any service to the citi-
zens, please do not hesitate to.

The Sabbath Law
(Kent Heaton)

Moses recorded in Exodus 31:13-17 the law
concerning the Sabbaths given by God to the chil-
dren of Israel. The. people of Israel were to keep
the Sabbaths as instructed by God as a sign be-
tween God and the people of Israel. The purpose
of this law keeping was to show to the people
"that I am Lord who sanctifies you" (v13). Ob-
servance of the Sabbath was not a choice but a
command "You shall keep the Sabbath" (v14).
The day was a holy day to them and the Lord
would show how holy the day would be. Anything
that is holy to the Lord is set apart to Him. The
penalty for "profaning" the Sabbath was death
(v14). The name of the Lord was.not to be pro-
faned (Leviticus 18:21), nor the sanctuary of the
Lord (Leviticus 21:12) and the Sabbath day would
not be profaned without penalty. God instructs
Moses in verse 14 "whoever does any work" on
the Sabbath day, "that person shall be cut off
from among his people." This cutting off would
be a literal removal. An actual case of a man pro-
faning the Sabbath is in Numbers 15:32-36 and
the "congregation brought him outside the camp
and stoned him with stones, and he died" (v36).
The penalty for profaning the Sabbath is set
forth again in verse 15 when the instruction to
work for six days is given but the "seventh is the
Sabbath of rest, holy to the Lord." This law is not
difficult to understand. Whatever work needed to
be done must be done through the first six days of
the week. The last day of the week would be a day
of rest. The penalty for disobedience is again set
forth as death.
The Sabbath law or covenant was between the
Lord and the people of Israel alone. "Moses
called all Israel, and said unto them, 'Hear, 0 Is-
rael, the statutes and judgments which I speak in
your ears this day, that ye may learn them, and
keep, and do them. The Lord our God made a
covenant with us in Horeb. The Lord made not

this covenant with our fathers, but with us, even
us, who are all of us here alive this day" (Deute-
ronomy 5:1-3). In the text of Exodus 31, we find
the Sabbath as a "sign" between God and the chil-
dren of Israel. Moses expounded on the meaning of
the sign in Deuteronomy 5:15 "And remember
that thou was a servant in the land of Egypt, and
,that the LORD thy God brought thee out thence
through a mighty hand and by a stretched out
arm: therefore the LORD thy God commanded
thee to keep the Sabbath day."
From these passages, we conclude the Sabbath
law: was given to the children of Israel as a cove-
nant and a sign between them and God, As long as
they continued in that covenant, the Sabbath was
binding. The Jews broke that covenant and the law
is no longer binding (See Ezekiel 20; esp. verse
13). The law also included a penalty for those who
would profane the Sabbath day as death. If the law
is still binding, so is the penalty.
Under Christ, the Sabbath has been done away
with (Hebrews 8:8-13). The law of God to Israel
(the same as the law of Moses Nehemiah 8:1,8; 2
Chronicles 34:14; Mark 7:10) was taken out of the
way by the death of Christ (Colossians 2:14). Paul
instructed the church at Colosse "Let no man
therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in re-
spect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the
Sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to
come; but the body is of Christ" (Colossians 2:16-
17). The Sabbath' days were a shadow of what was
to come. Those shadows are gone.
The first day of the week is the "Lord's day"
and is not th"Sabbath." Jesus was raised on this
day (Mark 16) and the early disciples met on this
day to remember the death, burial and resurrection
of Jesus (Acts 20:7) in the Lord's Supper. Under
the new covenant, we worship the Lord on the first
day of the week.

From The
Of The Bell
The book which I read this
week has been on the best seller
list until a few weeks ago. It is
Jimmy Buffett's latest novel,
Salty Piece of Land. In the
novel, Tully Mars is the main
character. He took his horse
and left his home state of Wyo-
mingto try to escape his prob-
lems. He toured the islands of
Central America and the Baha-
mas. To earn his way he fished,
served as a fishing guide, re-
paired boats, and rebuilt light-
houses. He led an exciting life
as he visited the islands and the
unforgettable Caribbean. One
day he met an eccentric 101-
year old lady sea captain and
she hired him to a job of re-
building ,a lighthouse she had
bought whichh took him to a
"salty piece of land" and this
-changed his life fore' er.

Career Day A Huge
Success At TES
Trenton Elementary School
students and staff participated in
their annual career day, Friday,
April 15th. Thanks to our com-
munity, the students learned
about a variety of careers: heli-
copter pilot, NASA Scientist,
dentist, fireman, cave diver, ar-
cheology, and much, much
Students gathered and
watched in awe as the Fish and
Wildlife helicopter landed on
the campus. Lt. Joe Johnson
managed to strategically place
the helicopter in the bus loop as
the students watched with great
anticipation. The students then
began to rotate through a variety
of career presentations and later
visited the helicopter and pilot
along with Michael Guy and
Roy Williams from Fish and
Wildlife who brought a friend
from the Suwannee that all the
students were able to see and
touch. One little kindergartner
said, "Wow! I never saw an al-
ligator before!" How wonderful
it is to provide experiences for
children and hands-on learning.
From law enforcement to
cave divers and Central Florida
Electric technicians to dentistry
and entomology, our students
experienced the joy of learning
and the importance of being a
lifelong learner. Students
learned how school and educa-
tion affect their future. Career
day was a wonderful way for
students to learn the application
of education. It is because of
these experiences that our chil-

Heart In Our Work
Success does not depend upon a
lucky break or quirk...
But it is likely if we put our
heart into our work...
Although sometimes a lazy
mind may make a sudden
The chances are that finally the
stride will be in vain...
Because the only progress that
is permanent and real...
Is that which faithful fortitude
and energy reveal...
We have to earn our way in life
if we would reach the top...
And there should be no other
place where we decide to stop...
So let us meet the pattern that is
always straight and true...
And put our every task we un-
dertake to do.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, April 28th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
How great it was to welcome
John and Jackie Harrison from
England. They came last year
and we taught Jackie how to
quilt and she is still doing
great. We also welcomed four
ladies from Ocala and a good
time was enjoyed by all.
As many of you know, we
have pot luck each week and it
has become a great event. We
never know what will come in
but today was a feast and this
is what we had: fried rice, fried
chicken, barbecue meat balls,
chicken and noodles, creamed
corn, green bean casserole,
potato casserole, corn casse-
role, stewed tomatoes, spa-

ghetti and meat balls, noodles
and sauerkraut, green peas,
cheese and macaroni, garlic
bread, lima beans, macaroni
salad, broccoli salad, cheese,
carrot cake, cheesecake, fudge,
bomb cake, and ice cream.
Now, if anyone goes away
hungry it's your fault.
We want to thank everyone
who brings in fabric, patterns,
yarn and so much more. We
will be having a sale after we
hold the Ladies Fellowship
Dinner on May 3d.
Quilting goes on each week
and also Christa works on a
hooked rug.
I do want to thank all the
members who help wherever
needed. We had 17 members
and seven visitors.

325 W. Wade St. (Hwy 26) 3 Blocks west of light in Trenton

house Quilter's would like to
complete. It is very easy to start
a project, but ten times harder to
get it finished. One thing that
did get finished for about 30 of
the Springhouse Quilters was
the Chicken Challenge, assigned
to the membership by Alice
Gilbert and her committee. This
was a volunteer project, but
very interesting.
Oh, what fun we all had try-
ing to make those chickens.
The assignment was to make an
original chicken quilt "block"
by the April meeting.
Now, these chickens could
not be "cut-out" or "applique"
chickens using a chicken from
printed fabric. They had to be
"designed" and made by the in-
dividual members. The final
straw, was to "smuggle" the
chickens into the April meeting,
name covered, and deliver to
Ms. Alice.
During the upcoming June
regular business meeting, the
blocks will' be displayed and
members will get to make a
"viewer's choice" selection.
Then in June, there will be a
first, second and third place
viewer's choice announcement.
These winners will be featured
in articles during the month of
During the April regular
meeting there were very many
beautiful,, completed quilted
projects. The show and tell was
awesome to say the least. Kay
Fales, president, was absent,
seeing that her husband under-
went surgery, which went well.
Our most efficient vice presi-.
dent filled in for Kay and did a
wonderful job of keeping the
meeting on target.
Also, during the April regular
meeting Alice Gilbert and Elsie
Myers presented a "mini" quilt
show of the many quilts and re-
lated projects that they had
completed. The guild house
was beautifully decorated
showing off all of their projects.
As you can imagine, they do
keep busy quilting.
On. April 26'h, Diane
Schweder,instructed the mem-
bers on how to make a super
tote bag, one that could be used
to buy and carry home a large
stash of fabric. Twelve mem-
bers were able to enjoy this,
workshop and by the Nite Owls'
meeting time at 6:45 p.m. the
same day, two of the members
were able to "show and tell"
their completed tote bags. They
were huge!
April has been a beautiful
month. The rains have kept.the
flowers blooming and every-
thing so green and fresh. What
more could we ask for? To all
you quilters and those wishing
to be quilters, happy quilting.

Death Tax Has One
Foot In The Grave
U.S. Representative Ginny
Brown-Waite recently joined
271 of her colleagues in passing
H.R. 8, the bipartisan Death Tax
Repeal Permanency Act of
2005. The bill passed the
House by a vote of 272 to 162.
"With passage of H.R. 8,
death will no longer be consid-
ered a taxable event," said Rep-

resent. Brown-Waite. "The
permanent repeal of the estate
tax is an important step to guar-
antee long-term family planning
stability for the millions of
small businesses and family
farmers across America."
Prior to 2001, the top death
tax rate was 55 percent, with
some taxpayers paying a 60 per-
cent marginal rate. Today the
top rate is 47 percent. These are
exorbitantly high rates of taxa-
tion, especially when the tax is
imposed on a lifetime of hard
work. Permanent repeal of the
death tax will ensure that small
businesses and family farms are
not subject to these unfair rates
of taxation.
"It is amazing to me that
Washington bureaucrats de-
mand yet another hefty percent-
age of your hard earned assets,
even after you are dead," con-
tinued Rep. Brown-Waite.. "The
death tax amounts to a second
or third bite out of the apple for
the federal government, and
provide's no benefit to hard
working American taxpayers."

March And April
Busy For Trenton
On March 24, 2005, our sen-
ior forestry team, Adam Cook,
Chris Harrison, and Austin
Davis, headed out to Lake City
for the forestry contest.
Throughout the course of the
day, our team members had to
be able to understand and use
forestry terms, understand the
economic impact of forestry, be
able to recognize opportunities
in forestry, be able to identify
major species of trees, identify
hand tools and equipment,
identify forest disorders, take
forestry inventory, and recog-
nize marketing management
systems. Adam Cook took third
high individual in Biltmore.
Congratulations to the team
On March 25, 2005, we had
three individuals compete in the
Ornamental Horticulture Dem-
onstrations contest. At this
contest there were five catego-
ries: production, marketing,
consumer use, artistic arrange-
ment, and landscaping. Each
contestant had to come up with
a project to demonstrate. They
had five minutes to set up,
seven to twelve minutes to do
his/her presentation, and two
minutes for questions. The top
two groups in each category
both move on to the state com-
petition. Rachel Kee competed
in consumer use. She created an
edible, vegetable centerpiece.
She used carrots, radishes, cu-
cumbers, and other vegetables
to create her project. Rachel
placed second in the area. Ivey
Kee competed in landscaping.
She wowed her judges by dem-
onstrating the proper way to
prune a tree with her lopphng
shears and pruning shears. Ivey
took third place. Kirstie Miguel
competed in marketing. She
demonstrated how to make fla-
vored oil that she called fusion.
Kirstie placed first in her cate-
gory. Congratulations to all
three individuals!
On a cool Saturday morning,
the Trenton Junior and Senior
poultry judging teams headed
off to Gainesville to compete in
the state contest. Our members
were split up into different
groups which they stayed with
for the remainder of the compe-
tition. Throughout the day they
completed the different aspects
of their contest. They judged
interior and exterior eggs where
they looked at stains, body
checks, and calcium deposits.
Then they headed off to name
the different parts of the chicken
like drumsticks and thighs.
Their next stop was judging car-
casses in a meat freezer where
they all froze at some point.
Then-came judging two sets of
live birds and giving oral rea-
sons on them. Our junior team
consisted of Ashley Serrano,
Mathew Langford, Travis Ses-
sions, Sarah NeSmith, and Josh
Rose. They did extremely well
placing seventh. Our senior
team consisted of Rachel Kee,
Ivey Kee, Kirstie Miguel, and
Ashley Sinclair. They took
third place. Rachel Kee placed
fourth high individual. The
teams will receive their awards
at state convention in June.
Congratulations to the team

4 Pets Sake
I can't remember ever having
so much fun at a yard sale in my
entire life! It was a sight to be-
hold. When asked if we will do
the Spring Fling again, our an-
swer is,yes, next year. It may
become one of our annual

events. Sorry we could not
have any games set up but the
rain caused the ground to be su-
per wet for any outside activi-
ties. In spite of the weather, we
grossed $846 for the day.
We thank all the hard work-
ing volunteers who knew ex-
actly what they were doing
when they hit the ground run-
ning. Mrs. Rush and her first
grade Bell Elementary class
kept the place jumping steadily
selling dog biscuits. Dr. Dawn
Miller and Shirl Johnson
brought some beautiful birds
with them. People were fasci-
nated by the owls because they
don't see them, they only hear
them hoot at night. This gave
them a chance to be up close
and personal. Look for our next
newsletter to learn more about
the happenings.
Our next yard sale will be
Saturday, May 28th in Bell, on
Railroad Avenue, next to city
hall. We will keep you in-
formed as this unfolds.

How secure is Social Secu-
The future of Social Security
is' on the front burner at this
time. There is still time to come
up with ideas for making
changes in the system that will
guarantee it will be solvent
when the time comes for the
baby boomers td begin retiring.
One of the options being con-
sidered is to put a portion of the
Social Security paid in each
month by contributors aside for
private investment by the indi-
vidual making the payment.
One suggestion that comes to
mind is to set up a national long
term care insurance policy.
The money invested from the
payments into the plan, either
through large insurance compa-
nies such as Prudential, Metro
Life, Aetna, and others or
through a national scheme cre-
ated for the purpose, whichever
scheme the- paee -chooses.
should be ear-marked for the

construction and maintenance of
long-term care facilities.
If started soon enough, the
payments could be minimal up
to the four percent being pro-
posed at this time. Since the
amount would be part of the So-
cial Security plan that is already
being paid, there would be no
extra expense to the investor. If
.investment in a current long-
term care policy is delayed until
later on in life, it can be very
expensive. More than $200 a
month after 70 years of age in
most cases.
Harold and Meveree Pope
attended the Saturday morning
visit to the county by Repre-
sentative Cliff Stearns (R) and
report that he asked for sugges-
tions to take back to Washing-
ton in response to the presi-
dent's proposal regarding the
privatization of a part of the So-
cial Security payments and there
were very few suggestions.
Since he is asking for our sug-
gestions and if you have a good
one, you may call his office in
Gainesville at 352-337-0003.
You can also call John Ayers at
the Gilchrist County Journal
and he might print some of them
in the Journal. Should make for
interesting reading.

Honored At
Life's most persistent and ur-
gent question is, "What are you
doing for others?"
Volunteers are critical to the
success of many organizations.
Volunteers at Hospice of North
Central Florida, part of the Hos-
pice of North Central Florida,
(HNCF) network, give numer-
ous hours in order to help oth-
ers. t
The HNCF network covers 16
counties and includes
Gainesville and Alachua
County. More than 20,000 vol-
unteer hours were spent work-
ing directly with patients" and
their families.
"All of our hospice volunteers
selflessly help patients, their
families and the community. It
is inspirational working with
such a committed, compassion-
ate group of people," said
Monica Monahan, manager of
volunteer services.
These dedicated individuals
were honored recently at the an-
nual Hospice of North Central
Florida Volunteer Appreciation
luncheon held in conjunction
with national Volunteer Appre-,
ciation Month in April. Certain
volunteers were recognized for
their service hours (approx. +50

hours), their special contribution
(not monetary) to the organiza-
tion or a special service per-
formed for a patient or family.
Special recognition went to
Susie Sebring, recipient of the
Helping Hands Administrative
Volunteer Award-Tri-County
for her dedication and contribu-
tions since January 2003.
Harry Coleman, recipient of
the Dr. Raymond Fitzpatrick
Award for his exemplary Hos-
pice volunteer service, has
served Hospice for several
years. The award was given to
Coleman for his outstanding'
commitment to community
partnership building, placing
service above self and true hu-
manity as a volunteer.
Coleman has been a Hospice
of the Tri-Counties volunteer
and benefactor since 2002. He
comes to the care center every
morning to fill bird feeders,
buys fresh roses every week for
nurses to give to families who
have lost a loved one, purchased
televisions for all patient rooms,
buys materials for volunteers to
make pillow covers and afghans
for patients, and has provided
for the needs of many patients.
Coleman is being recognized
by HNCF for his extraordinary
volunteerism and for his most
recent gift of $30,000 which
will name a patient room for
him in memory of his brother,
Norris Coleman, and his niece's

Mother's Day Advice
For Moms-To-Be

mother-to-be or new mom can
give to her child is to quit
smoking. Rumor is that even
Britney Spears gave up ciga-
Srettes when she learned she was
pregnant. Like Britney, many

Sever, the majority of them return
to smoking shortly after they

Program, conducted as part'of a
research study through the H.
Lee Moffitt Cancer Center &
Research Institute in Tampa, is
offering to mail pregnant
women who quit smoking in-
Sformation to help them to stay
smoke-free for good.
"The word has gotten out that

harmful to the unborn child.
Consequently, more women
Than ever have quit smoking
during their pregnancy," says
SDr. Tom Brandon. director of
Sthe Tobacco Research and In-
tervention Program at Noffitt
SCare Center. "Unfortunately,
the public health community has

the word about the dangers of
exposing a newborn to second-

child's risk of Sudden Infant

asthma, colic, pneumonia, .mid-

Wednesday, the Bell Library is
staffed by Maria Hernandez,

one will come in and get their

The library is always looking

like to join the staff, stop in and
ask about getting started. Since
many of the books and videos
they offer are donations, they
are always looking for more

the library. Since the library has
a limited budget, they are al-

Proud To Be A
"Where are the heroes of to-
day?" a radio talk show host
thundered. He blames society's
shortcomings on education.
Too many people are looking
for heroes in all the wrong
places. Movie stars and rock
musicians, athletes and models
aren't heroes; they're celebri-
ties. Heroes abound in public
schools, a fact that doesn't make
the news. There is no precedent
for the level' of violence, drugs,
broken homes, child abuse, and
crime in today's America.
Education didn't create these
problems but deals with them
every day.
You want heroes? Consider
Dave Sanders, the school
teacher shot'to death while try-
ing to shield his students from
two youth on a shooting ram-
page at Columbine High School
in Littleton, Colorado. Sanders
gave his life, along with 12 stu-
dents, and other less heralded
heroes survived the Colorado
blood bath.
You want heroes? Jane
Smith, a Fayetteville, North
Carolina teacher, was moved by
the plight of one of her students,
a boy dying for want of a kid-
ney transplant. So this woman
told the family of a 14-year-old
boy that she would give him one
of her kidneys. And she did.
When they subsequently ap-
peared together hugging on The
Today Show, Katie Couric was
near tears.
You want heroes? Doris
Dillon dreamed all her life of
being a teacher. She not only,
made it, she was one of those
wondrous teachers that could
wring the best out of every sin-
gle child. One of her fellow
teachers in San Jose, California
said, "She could teach a rock to
read." Suddenly she was
stricken with Lou Gehrig's Dis-
ease, which is always fatal, usu-
ally within five years. she asked
to stay on job and did. When
her voice was affected she
communicated by computer.
Did she go home? Absolutely
not! She is running two ele-
mentary school libraries! When
the disease was diagnosed, she
wrote the staff and all the fami-
lies that she had one last lesson
to teach that dying is part of
living. Her colleagues named
her'Teacher of the Year..' ', ;
"You want heroes.? Bob
House, a'teacher in Gay, Geor-
gia, tried out for Who Wants To
Be A Millionaire. After he won
the million dollars, a network
film crew wanted to follow up
to see how it had impacted his
life. New cars? Big new
house? Instead, they found both
Bob House and his wife still
teaching. They explained that it
was what they had always
wanted to do with their lives
and that would not change. The
community was both stunned
and gratified.
You want heroes? Last year
the average school teacher spent
$468 of their own money for
student necessities work-
books, pencils, supplies kids
had to have but could not afford.
That's a lot of money from the
pockets of the most poorly paid
teachers in the industrial world.
Schools don't teach values?
The critics are dead wrong.
Public education provides more
Sunday school teachers than any
other profession. The average
teacher works more hours in
nine months than the average
40-hour employee does in a
You want heroes? For mil-
lions of kids, the hug they get
from a teacher is the only hug
they will get that day because
the nation is living through the
worst parenting in history. An
Argyle, Texas kindergarten
teacher hugs her little five and
six-year-olds so much that both
the boys and the girls run up
and hug her when they see her
in *the hall, at the football
games, or in the malls years
later. A Michigan principal
moved me to tears with th e
story of her attempt to rescue a
badly abused little boy who
doted on a stuffed animal on her
desk one that said "I love
you!" He said he'd never been
told that at home. This is a con-
stant in today's society two

million unwanted, unloved,
abused children in the public
schools, the only institution that
takes them all in.
You want heroes? Visit any
special education class and
watch the miracle of personal
interaction, a job' so difficult
that fellow teachers are awed by
the dedication they witness.
There is a sentence from an
unnamed source which says,
"We have been so anxious to
give our children what we didn't
have that we have neglected to
give them what we did." What

is it that our kids really need?
What do they really want?
Math, science, history and so-
cial studies are important, but
children need love, confidence,
encouragement, someone to talk
to, someone to listen, stan-
dards-to live by. Teachers pro-
vide upright examples, the faith
and assurance of responsible
You want heroes? Then go
down to your local school and
see our real live heroes the
ones changing lives for the bet-
ter each and every day!
Now, pass this on to someone
you know who's a teacher, or to
someone who should thank a
teacher today.

A Card Of Thanks
We are so thankful to live in a
community where people still
take the time to show love,
compassion and concern for
others in sad times. Losing
Mom has been a sad time but
our friends have made it possi-
ble to face it. If she can see the
way we have been embraced,
she is surely happy. A heartfelt
thank you to everyone for your
prayers, visits, phone calls,
food, flowers, and cards. Most
of all, thank you for your love.

FWC Weekly Report
For April 22-28
This report represents some
significant events the FWC
handled over the past week;
however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of
Law Enforcement.
A report of numerous sight-
ings of a large cat, possibly a
lion or tiger, was received from
the Waldo area in the early
hours of April 28th.'
FWC officers and investiga-


tors responded to the area, along
with deputies of the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office and of-
ficers with the Waldo Police
Department. A perimeter was
established and a search of the
area was conducted. FWC re-
cords check revealed no one in
the area was permitted to be in
possession of large cats. The
search 'was canceled by Lt.
David Lee after determining
that no credible evidence of a
large cat was found in the area.

On April 25th, Officer Rama
Shuster was on land patrol
checking fishermen at the C.R.
40 boat ramp. During his
checks, Shuster observed a
green Chevrolet S-10 pickup
parked in the boat ramp turning
area with its lights on. In the
bed of the truck was a blue crab
trap .with fresh barnacles and a
"V" number tag attached to the
trap. Shuster then questioned
the driver about the trap. The
driver and passenger of the
truck stated that the trap be-
longed to a friend and they had
permission to possess it. Shus-
ter ran the "V" number through
dispatch to obtain the identity of
the owner. Subsequent contact
with the trap owner revealed the
driver and passenger did not
have permission to possess the
trap. The driver of the truck
was issued a citation for the

P. O. Box 559, Trenton, Florida 32693
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Post 91 will hold elections for the Post Officers for the new year
2005-2006 at the regular monthly meeting on Saturday, May 14th.
Begin the morning with your fellow Legionnaires at the pancake
breakfast that begins at 08:00 and stay for the meeting that begins at
10:00. Enjoy a great breakfast and the fellowships of your
comrades-in-arms as you renew old friendships or make new ones.
Take part in the meeting as the Post elects officers to get ready to
enter the new year for Post 91. There are new challenges ahead and
new programs to work on. Each of the Legionnaires of Post 91 can
find a place and a job to do to. make the Post grow and prosper in and
for our community. The elections will take place during the meeting.
Prior to the ballot, the floor will be open for nominations for all
offices of the Post, but keep in mind that the Legionnaires nominated
must be present and willing to be placed on the ballot and must be in
good standing (paid up to date) of Post 91. The Officers of Post 91
have worked long and hard this year and the same will be required of
the officers for the New Year. The hope is that the Legionnaire
members of Post 91 will continue to support the efforts of the officers
and will join in with the programs and fund-raisers needed to keep
Post 91'solvent and viable in this community. The Post has an asset
in the Post home, but it sits idle far too often. The Post home is
available for a donation. For more information, call the Post 91 phone
at (352) 463-1501 and leave a message. Your call will be returned to
see how we can assist you.
Each year the Eli Read Scholarship has provided two, five
hundred-dollar scholarships for our community's graduating senior
class. This year is no different. The essays are due at the Trenton Post
Office by May 13th and the winners will be -selected shortly
thereafter. The Scholarship Committee will meet with the chairman
of the committee and will read the essays and make their selections.
The winners will be asked to read their entries to the assembled
Legionnaires at a meeting later this year. Post 91 is looking forward
to hearing these essays from some of the young graduating seniors in
our community.
Legionnaires mark your calendars for June 11, 2005. That is the
Post 91 Installation of Officers. The Post has invited a number of
guests, some elected officials of the Legion as well as the local
community. But, not only .have we invited guests, Post 91 also is
installing the charter officers for the American Legion Auxiliary Unit
91 and the charter officers for the Sons of the American Legion
Squadron 91. These are two good reasons to plan to join us for this
morning of celebration. Join us in solidarity with these new "'family
members" and welcome them into our "Home". As usual, breakfast
will begin at 08:00 and the meeting will begin at 10:00. The business
will be done at the Executive Committee meeting on June 9th. Plan to
join us for breakfast and the Post Installation of Officers. It promises
to be a memorable event.
Remember our Armed Forces all over the world each day in your
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and families of those called to active duty, helping
out however and whenever we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

The Department of Environ-
mental Protection gives notice of its
preparation of a draft permit,
FLA184993, for Hilltop Dairy, Post
Office Box 790, CR 341 South of
SR 26, Chiefland, FL 32644, Gil-
christ County to construct and op-
erate an existing dairy farm opera-
tion (SIC Code 0241), with a herd
size of 3,800 cows (maximum an-
nual average), including 3,200
healthy milking cows, 75 pot or
crippled milk cows, and 525 dry
cows. The facility will consist of
five total confinement freestall
barns, a milking parlor, a wastewa-
ter treatment system and land appli-
cation areas. All milking cows will
be housed in the total confinement
freestall barns. The pot herd and
,'dry Cw.,will rc'.idc on op, n pas-
ture. An additional freestall barn
may be constructed to house the dry
cows. Manure in the freestall barns
will be flushed and directed to the
wastewater treatment system. The
milking parlor flush and clean up
wastewater will also be directed to
the treatment system.
A Nutrient Management Plan
(NMP) has been developed for this
facility. It consists of a system de-
signed based on an average of
280,000 gallons per day of waste-
water and includes a solids separa-
tor, a 3.1 million gallon lined waste
storage pond and 955 acres for
wastewater irrigation, based on ag-
ronomic rates for nitrogen. The
wastewater system is designed to
contain run-off from the production
area, which consists of animal con-
finement areas, the wastewater
collection system, and the manure
staging areas, and is 3.5 acres in
size, for a 25-year 24-hour storm
and 7 days of waste storage. Clean
water from roof run-off is diverted
away from the waste collection
system. Stormwater runoff from
the commodity barn and feed areas,
is collected in a retention area
onsite that can retain the runoff
from this area for the 25 year 24
hour storm.
The treatment system is designed
as follows: Wastewater is generated
from milking parlor, work area, and
freestall barn flushes, milk room
and parlor wash water, cow wash-
ers, cooling sprinklers, and storm-
water runoff from the production
area.. The wastewater is directed to
the solids separator. From the sol-
ids separator the wastewater flows
into the waste .storage pond.
Wastewater from the waste storage
pond will be pumped to 7 spray-
fields, totaling 955 acres, for use as
irrigation water. Solids removed
from the solids separator will be
spread on forage fields onsite or

hauled offsite for land application
at agronomic rates. The facility is
located at latitude 2935'50" N,
longitude 82052'34" W CR 341
South of SR 26, Chiefland, FL
32644 in Gilchrist County.

By Anna Wild
This past week was a busy
one for the Trenton Softball
team. Trenton High School
hosted the District Softball
Tournament last week and on
Friday, April 29'" the Trenton
Tigers played Chiefland in the
final game of the district tour-
nament. This game was to de-
termine which team would place
first and second in our district;
both will go on to the Regional
Quarter Finals.
The first run was scored by
Trenton in the 2"d inning, but
Chiefland came out in the 3rd
inning and scored four points.
After that, Trenton worked hard
to regain the lead but Chiefland
held strong. Trenton's pitcher
Shelly Law, should be com-
mended on an excellent job.
This was her thiid day in a row
pitching and you could not tell.
Her last ball was as hard and ac-
curate as her first.
In the end Chiefland won the
game 4 to 1 to place them first
in our district and Trenton's
Softball Team took second
place in our district. Our Tren-
ton Tigers will go to the Re-
gional Quarter Finals this
Thursday, May 5th where they
will play P.K. Yonge in
Gainesville. If they win that
game they will go on to the
semifinals. Good luck girls and

Congress limits the Navy to

The plan also requires a

Governor. Bush
Signs Florida's New
"Castle Doctrine"
Self-Defense Law
Recently, in a ceremony at
the state capitol, Governor. Jeb
Bush signed Florida's "Castle
Doctrine" (SB-436) into law.
Sponsored by Senator Durell
Peaden and Representative
Dennis Baxley, the bill unani-
mously passed the Senate and
overwhelmingly passed in the
House, 94-20.
Prior to signing the National
Rifle Association (NRA) sup-
ported bill, Governor. Jeb Bush
stated, "It's a good, common-
sense, anti-crime issue."
The "Castle Doctrine" simply
says that if a criminal breaks
into your home, your occupied
vehicle or your place of busi-
ness, you may presume he is
there to do bodily harm and you
may use any force against him.

many of the same needs that
were again identified by the fire
study that was begun in
February 2004 and updated in
April 2005.
Commissioner "Kenrick
Thomas recognized the need for
the county to make a step in the
right direction by approving the
Fire Special Assessment. He
made the motion to approve
Resolution 05-13.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford gave a second in
approval of the motion.
The Commission Chairman
opened the flood, for public
input. For the first time since
the board has considered the
Fire Special Assessment, there
was no comment by the public
attending the meeting.
Commissioner Sharon
Langford again pointed out that
she was in favor of the Fire
Special Assessment on a whole,
but she would like to see the
charge on vacant property
reduced to 0. The chairman
called for a vote and the board
approved the motion with a 5-0
John McPherson told the
board that they could still adjust
the fees on this resolution as
long as it is done before it is
proposed for the tax bill.

Conservationist Of
The Year Peter C.
Frederick, Ph.D.
Dr. Peter Frederick, a Univer-
sity of Florida wetland ecolo-
gist, has conducted research on
Florida's wetland vertebrates
and their interactions with wet-
land processes and the environ-
ment since the early 1990s. his
work has led to major, funda-
mental insights into the natural
functioning and wise manage-
ment of Florida's wetlands. Dr.
Frederick's research has shown
that populations ibises and other
water birds may range widely
over wetlands dispersed over
areas as large as the southeast-
ern U.S., northern South Amer-
ica, or the southern cone of Af-
rica. Their movements are
dependent on rare combinations
of ecological conditions that
make prey highly available.
Peter Frederick was one of
the first to assess the damaging
effects of mercury on an entire
ecosystem. His research on
Florida's wetland biota led to
the identification of new thresh-
olds of sub-lethal effects in free-
ranging wetland birds and the
