Brother Travis Moody Is New

Pastor At Union Baptist Church


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The membership of Union
Baptist Church welcomed a new
pastor to their church on July
24, 2005. Brother Travis
Moody, who was already
working at Union Baptist as the
youth minister, was called as the
pastor.
Brother Moody came to Un-
.. ion after working with the
church youth at Pine Grove
i ,:. Baptist for several years. He
said during his time at Pine
Grove he realized that God was
S calling him to full-time minis-
try.
Earlier this summer Brother
Moody was ordained as a min-
ister at Union Baptist. Brother
Moody said, "People who don't
have a church home are wel-
come to come to Union and hear
the Word of God preached." He
h grade went on to say, "I am excited
my Dr. about the opportunity to preach
my here and I really expect to see
special God do a lot while I'm here."
Brother Dave Curty, who had
been the minister at'Union Bap-
tist Church for the past five
years, recently retired. During
his guidance Union Baptist has
experienced a steady growth.
The average attendance for
Sunday Morning Service is over
150 at the present time. Under
Brother Curty's leadership the
church family built a beautiful
new sanctuary two years ago.
The new building took 18
months to build and is com-
pletely paid for. Many of the
church men worked tirelessly on
the construction project. This
new church building reflects the
caring efforts of the church
members. Brother Curty now
plans to spend time in Tampa

with his family who lives in that
area.
The early years of Brother
Moody's life were spent in the
Trenton area. He is the son of
Junior and Jane Moody and is


also a 1990 graduate of Trenton
High School. After high school
he joined the Air Force and after
completing his service to his

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The National Oceanic &
Atmospheric Administration
Fisheries Service approved a
new regulation to the red grou-
per fisheries on the Florida Gulf
Coast July 25th. The new rules
reduce the total aggregate grou-
per catch to three fish per day
and only one red grouper is al-
lowed to be kept in that three
fish per person bag limit. Along
with these restrictions, the rec-
reational grouper fishery will be
Closed during the months of
November and December. The
new regulations will go into ef-
fect immediately on August 9,
2005.
The recreational bag rules in
'place prior to August 9th al-
lowed a five fish per person per
day bag catch, and the angler is
'allowed to keep two red grouper
'that are 20 inches in length. The
'recreational fisherman was also
,allowed to fish and keep both
:gag and red grouper the entire
12 months of the year.
NOAA, the agency imple-
rnenting these new regulations,
indicated these new rules could
,be: temporary until the Marine
.fisheries Commission receive
'stud\ results to determine the
regulations have done a neces-
Sar) job to rebuild the red grou-
'pr fishery in the Gulf of Mex-
ico.
":-'Beginning in January 2003,
tfie Fishery Management Coun-
cil began a ten-year program
-that is directed at rebuilding the
,grouper fishery in the Gulf of
Mexico. The Council's study
reported, in order for this pro-


gram to be successful, the grou-
per fishery had to be reduced by
9.4 percent which is based on
random studies taken from av-
erage catch results from 1999
through 2001.
The program, being imple-
mented by, NOAA, indicated
that the total allowable catch
(TAC) for commercial and rec-
reational harvest is.6.56 million
pounds annually during the first
three years of the program from
2003-2005. The allowable catch
from both the commercial and
the recreational fisherman is
also based on the information
received from 1999-2001. The
allowable commercial harvest is
5.31 million pounds (81 percent
of the total allowable catch and
the recreational harvest is 1.25
million pounds, which results to
actually 19 percent of the total
allowable catch.
The NOAA study indicates
that the recreational harvest ex-
ceeded their limit in 2004 by 1.8
million pounds. This informa-
tion is the reason for the new re-
strictions being implemented
immediately.
NOAA indicates that the
grouper fishery is being regu-
lated to ensure the fishery will
be strong for generations to
come.
I think NOAA is imple-
menting these regulations to
keep the Big Bend area 'of
Florida ta health) prospering
red grouper fishery) from be-
coming what the red grouper
fishery has turned in to from the
Tarpon Springs area south.
I understand the tipping of
the scales in giving the com-
mercial fisherman an advantage
in total allowable catch. But it
is unfair that the. recreational

fisherman is, only receiving less
than 20 percent. I guess that
NOAA is also attempting to
have fewer offshore fishing
guides operating businesses.
The closure of two months of
my business would put me out
of business. But, that is alright,
the commercial fishery can go
right on fishing until March
when they must tie their boats
up for a month.
I think these regulations are
overbearing. I feel that the price
of gasoline and the cost of a trip
offshore will reduce the amount
of fish being caught, without
putting a two month closure on
the fishery.
I have considered selling my
boat, but then again, I am going
to wait and see what will hap-
pen. I do love to fish, but at one
time I used to .love to shoot
quail and ducks. Things have
changed and shooting wild quail
in Florida is a thing of the past.
Duck hunting also became too
restrictive when you could only
shoot one or two ducks.

Barabbas A Prisoner Set Free
(Kent Heaton)


The scene was chaos as the crowd shouted,
"Crucify Him, crucify Him." The subject of their
wrath was not for a murderer but a man "who
went about doing good" (Acts 10:38). Their cries
for death were not given for one who had been an
insurrectionist but to a man who healed "all that
were oppressed of the devil" (Acts 10:38)..All of
the people gathered that day were demanding the
punishment not of one who was a robber (John
18:40) but of one who gave His life to help oth-
ers (Matthew 18:11). Voices filled the hall in ha-
tred and envy (Matthew 27:18) as a quiet man
stood before a Roman court with no one to defend
Him. He stood alone. He stood silent. He stood
looking into eyes created by His own hand. Jesus
Christ stood before an audience of His own people
as they screamed to Pilate to crucify Him.
In a dark jail stood a man who was vile and
evil. His life was one of destruction and slaughter.
He was called Barabbas. We know nothing of this
man until the trial of Jesus (Matthew 27:15-26;
Mark 15:6-15; Luke 23:13-25; John 18:39,40).
We know nothing more about him following. Yet,
his life depicts the very nature of man and the rea-
son for the death of Jesus. A paradox is found be-
fore Pilate as the greatest man that ever lived
would be traded for the vilest of men of his day. A
person of the Godhead was taken away and killed;
a person of mortal flesh was released. Barabbas
was a murderer; Jesus was the Savior. Barabbas
was a thief; Jesus was the great shepherd. Men re-
leased an insurrectionist; God allowed His Son to
die.
The Roman court was contemptuous in its hu-
man design. There was no righteousness and jus-
tice. Pilate released Barabbas and handed Jesus
over for crucifixion "to gratify the crowd" (Mark
15:15). He knew the only reason the Jews wanted
Jesus dead was because of envy (Mark 15:10).
The human nature was too base to rise above the


obvious and the holy. Barabbas was a known
criminal who to some point Pilate may have
thought that as evil a person as Barabbas was -
how could the people allow someone like him
back into society? Yet they chose to set him free
and crucify Jesus.
In Barabbas we find ourselves. Chained to the
misery of human despair, we are enemies of God
(Romans 5:8) and without hope (Ephesians 2:12).
The criminal Barabbas was released from prison
because of the death of Jesus. The Son of God
took the place of Barabbas. Our insurrection is in
the rebellion against those things of God and we
are by "nature children of wrath" (Ephesians
2:1-4). We are imprisoned in sin with no hope of
release or pardon. (Ephesians 2:8,9). In Christ we
find "redemption through His blood, the forgive-
ness of sins" (Ephesians 1:7). How is our free-
dom granted? By His sacrifice, on the cross. He
took our place! Jesus died for me! It is not be-
cause I deserved my freedom no more than Ba-
rabbas deserved to be set free. His guilt was par-
doned because of Jesus. My guilt is pardoned
because of Jesus (John 3:16).
God did not reveal what happened to Barabbas.
He may have gone back to murder and robbing.
He may have become a better man. The story of
Barabbas is not about the man Barabbas but how
Jesus took his place of condemnation. Jesus was
condemned to die so that I can find in Him no
condemnation. "There is therefore no condemna-
tion to those who are in Christ Jesus" (Romans
8:1). Christ became the curse for every man (Ga-
latians 3:13). The innocent blood of the Lamb of
God was poured out in the place of a vile and
wicked man. That is salvation. Jesus died for the
vile and wicked people of this world you and
me. What did Barabbas do? Better yet what will'
you do?

Gilchrist County Clerk Joe
Gilliam explained to the board
that the expansion of the clerk's
office for the judicial division is
proposed to be located across
the hall from the clerk's office
where counter space for cus-
tomers will be located on the
east end of the main hallway.
Michael LeBoeuf stated that
the commission had asked the
architect group to not go any
further south of the main south
entrance to the courthouse. The
architect pointed out that the
proposed changes were made to
meet the requests for the space
involving the holding cells,
moving judges away from the
noise of traffic on SR 26 and
putting the sallyport in a more
excisable area than on the north
side of the courthouse. The new
proposed design is planned to
extend to within 12 feet of the
present sidewalk. along SE First

On Monday afternoon the
Gilchrist County Commission
listened to Lloyd Kelly, presi-
dent of the Alexander Group,
which is the contractor in nego-
tiations for constructing the
courthouse addition in Gilchrist
County. Kelly explained to the
board that the negotiations in-
volving the construction plans
for the addition were going
well. The president of the
Newberry-based firm recog-
nized Michael LeBoeuf, the ar-
chitect representing the DLR
Group. LeBoeuf introduced
Moses Benson who is also an
associate architect with the DLR
Group.
The architect explained that
the original proposed plan has
been changed after meeting with
the Judicial Courthouse Com-
mittee over the last three
months.
The changes are to allow for a
better working design of the
clerk's office expansion in-
volving the new judicial space.
The new judicial space includes
two new courtrooms that are to
be constructed in the east end of
the new judicial area of the
courthouse. Along with the two
courtrooms will be space for
jury deliberation as well as of-
fice space for judges.

or Z LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, July 28th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. July is
gone and before we know it
fall will be here. Next comes
the quilt show, then on to fair
time and we wonder how time
can go so fast. Everyone is
busy planning and making
crafts and quilts. Some are
making their projects at home
and we never know what will
come in when it's time to set
the quilt show up.
Jarrod and eight boys were
out on Tuesday and did all the
things it takes to make our
yard and building look so
great. We also had the honor
of having Lieutenant Ken
Keeling from Lancaster out to
see what we do. We would
like to see more of the officers
out as we are so proud of our
750 boys who have come our
way to help build this big log
house. We wouldn't have it if
we hadn't had them for they
have saved us so much in what
they do. Thanks again Lan-
caster.
We had three visitors from
Ocala come over. One came

Morriston Water
Plant Hearing To Be
Held August 9
Attention all Levy County
residents. The next meeting for
the Morriston Water Bottling
Plant/Morrispring Natural Wa-
ter Corporation is on Tuesday,
August 9, 2005 at 6:30 p.m. in
Courtroom A at the Levy
County Courthouse in Bronson.
Please plan to attend. The
county commissioners will be
voting on this issue and your
voice needs to be heard.
If you cannot attend, please
call the county commissioners:
Tony Parker at (352) 486-2279,
Nancy Bell at (352) 493-4996,
Sammy Yearty at (352) 486-
2053, Lilly Rooks at (352) 543-
5191, or Danny Stevens at (352)
528-5731.
The proposed water bottling
company is trying to build a
water plant on CR 326 between
SR 121 and CR 337. Steeple-
chase Farms as '' ell s'tfie sur-
,rouldi~ig area will,be,affected.
Now, I realize that some resi-
dents think that a bottling plant
off of CR 326 will not affect
them, but think of this-if this
company succeeds, there will be
other companies popping up all
around our county. Marion
County was successful in turn-
ing away big corporations from
stealing their water and we need
to follow their lead. Levy
County's "Comprehensive
Plan" needs to be evaluated and
changed in order to stop any old
'or new companies from mining
our water.
Please come out Tuesday,
August 9th to the Levy County
Courthouse, Courtroom A, and
voice your opinions.

Post 383 Holds
Membership Drive
Old Town's American Legion
Post 383, after a successful
2004-05 membership recruiting
year in which Post 383 led all
posts in the state, kicked off
their 2005-06 membership drive
this past week. Post Adjutant Ed
Roche announced that the first
week's results were very satis-
fying in that 36 members re-
newed their membership, and
nine new members were added
to the Post. Heading up the
membership drive this year will
be Eugene Street, Vice Com-
mander and Membership
Chairman for the Post. Street
indicated that it would be very
hard to duplicate last year's feat
of a 214 percent increase, but
that the Post goal is to have 100
percent renewal by the end of
November. In order to encour-
age "early bird" renewal, there
are incentives for those mem-
bers that renew early, including
a rib eye steak dinner with all
the trimmings to be held in late
October, and a drawing for cash
awards, if the Post meets the
100 percent renewal deadline by
November 30t".

March Of Dimes
Wants Pregnant
Women To
Be Prepared During
Hurricane Season
Now that the 2005 hurricane
season is here, pregnant women
may have special concerns.
These often include questions
about how to prepare for and
where to ride out a storm. The
March of Dimes Florida Chap-
ter has resources available to
answer your questions. For
more information, visit mar-
chofdimes.com/florida.
Here is what you can do to be
ready for a hurricane:
Discuss concerns and
delivery plans with your
obstetrician/prenatal pro-
vider.
Follow hurricane readi-
ness guidelines available
at
www.floridadisaster.org.
Be prepared to evacuate
if you are in a designated
evacuation area.
Learn where safe shelters
are located and have a
plan for how to reach
them.
Have a two-week supply
of bottled water and non-
perishable food on-hand.
Fill your prescription
medications so you have
enough on hand to last
through the storm and the
recovery period.
Here are a few things you can
do to take good care of yourself
during this time:
Eat regularly and nutri-
tiously.
Drink water regularly.
Rest when you can and
when you feel your body
needs it,
Don't overdo it during
hurricane recovery -

Children Helping
Children Through
"Locks Of Love"
By Anna Wild
I recently learned of yet an-
other organization that is doing
amazing things to help children.
"Locks of Love" is a non-profit
organization which makes wigs
for children who are suffering
from long-term medical hair
loss. They work with many
children who are suffering from
a medical condition called
Alopecia Areata, which has no
known cause or cure, as well as
many other diseases which
cause hair loss including cancer.
The wigs "Locks of Love" pro-
vide help to restore the child's
self esteem and self confidence.
This small change can help
them re-enter their world of
other children and feel less
separated.
One of Trenton's proud
grandmothers, Anna Mae
Schofield, called me one day to
let me know her granddaughter
was visiting from Georgia and
had decided to get her hair cut
while she was here on vacation.
Her granddaughter, Scottlyn
James is ten years old and has
been growing her hair for the
past two years with the intention
of donating her long hair to the
' "Locks of Love" program. The
program needs the cut hair to be
at least ten inches long so par-
ticipants must be dedicated.
Scottlyn said she had heard
about "Locks of Love" from a
friend of hers and she thought it

healthcare provider if you have
even one of these symptoms.
The March of Dimes is a na-
tional voluntary health agency
whose mission is to improve the
health of babies by preventing
birth defects and infant mortal-
ity. Founded in 1938, the
March of Dimes funds programs.
of research, community serv-
ices, education, and advocacy to
save babies and in 2003
launched a campaign to address
the increasing rate of premature
birth. For more information,

site at marchofdimes.com or its

was a great way to help other
kids. That was two years ago
and now she is proud to be able
to help someone else. Her mom
and grandmother took her to
Lucy Swilley from "Klip N
Kurl" here in Trenton to have
her hair cut and restyled. Lucy
has cut other children's hair
who have then donated it to the
same organization. Scottlyn's
parents, Timothy and Mary Jane
James, are very proud that their
daughter took the initiative to
help others.
Here in Trenton other chil-
dren are already aware of the
"Locks of Love" organization
and have started the timely task
of letting their hair grow out.
The daughter of Steven and
Kimberly Hines, Katie Quincey,
is going through the "hippie
stage" of the processright now.
She and her parents are anx-
iously awaiting the day when
the required ten inches of hair
can be cut off and she can get
her hair restyled. Kimberly said
that her daughter was very ex-
cited about being able to do
something that will help others
so much. Katie is a real tender-
hearted individual and it makes
her parents proud that she is
taking part in such a personal
and caring contribution.
Another Trenton girl, Brittany
Ozment, is also participating in
the "Locks of Love" program.
She heard about the organiza-


tion through Brittany Lee, also
of Trenton. Miss Ozment has
approximately three to four
more inches of hair to grow be-
fore she meets the ten required
inches. Her last hair cut was in
December of 2004: Brittany is
the daughter of David and
Teresa Ozment. She is a 2003
graduate of Trenton High
School and Lake City Commu-
nity College and will attend the
University of Florida this fall.
To learn more about the
"Locks of Love" organization
you can log on to their website
at www.locksoflove.org or you
can call 888-896-1588. They
are located in Lake Worth and
have additional opportunities
for others to help. The website
also gives particulars on what
hair can and cannot be used (for
instance hair cannot be colored
or permed, and hair is needed
from men and women of all
ages and races, etc.) Helping a
child is perhaps one of the most
rewarding acts one can partici-
.pate in. Not only are you
showing compassion and care,
but you are showing that child
the importance of reaching out
and helping someone that you
don't even know. Maybe
someday that child will have the
opportunity to help another as
well. Thank you girls for caring
so much and giving so much of
yourselves!

illnesses that cause hair loss. Scottlyn's grandmother, Anna Mae Schofield of:"-
Trenton, was very proud of her granddaughter for deciding to grow her hair out for

lies by finding common inter-
ests and lifestyles through an in-
formal in-home meeting.

ch' host families, P.I.E. can fit

Crist Presents School
Resource Officer Of
The Year Award
Attorney General Charlie
Crist recently presented the an-
nual School Resource Officer of
the Year award to the full
Charlotte County School Re-
source Officer unit, which had
to endure personal loss while
helping public school students
cope with the devastation of
Hurricane Charley. Crist pre-,
sented the award this morning at
the annual conference of the
Florida Association of School
Resource Officers.
This year's presentation
marks the first time a unit,
rather than an individual officer,
has been honored with the
award. Crist presented the first
award in 2003 to Seminole
County Sheriff's Deputy How-
ard J. Day, and last year recog-
nized Charlotte County Deputy
Thomas A. Burke Jr. just three
months before he succumbed to
a lengthy battle with cancer. In
announcing this year's recipient,
Crist .cited the fact that the
Charlotte County SRO unit had
to endure the loss of Deputy
Burke, who worked at a school
for students with special needs,
while helping students get
through the aftermath of Hurri-
cane Charley.
"Nothing was normal for
anyone in Charlotte County af-
ter Hurricane Charley tore
through the area, yet this dedi-
cated group of school resource
officers did everything possible
to maintain a supportive atmos-
phere for the students," Crist
said. "Without exception, the
Charlotte County SROs took to
this daunting task without com-
plaint, and as a result they made
positive things happen for the
children "even while their own
lives were turned upside-down
by the storm."
Three of the Charlotte County
SROs saw their own homes de-
stroyed by the storm, while
most of the others suffered
moderate to severe damage. De-
spite their own losses, the offi-
cers helped students deal with
major disruption to their daily
routine. Seven public schools in
the county were severely dam-
aged to the point of being unus-
able, resulting in several schools
doubling up. Some students be-
gan their school day as early as
6.00 a.m.. while others attended
as late as 7:00 p.m The officers
helped Ji.placed studentss adapt
to unfamiliar campuses while
going through the physical and
psychological trauma of a major
disaster.
Crist cited the following
Charlotte County school re-
source officers as "true heroes."
Cpl. Hurley Burnette, Deputy
Donald Amrhein, Deputy Kath-
erine Blevins, Deputy Carla
Boney-Williams, Deputy
Rhonda Ellsworth, Deputy Lynn
Fuller, Deputy 'Terri Hessler,
Deputy Wendy Merritt, Deputy
John Moraghan, Deputy Casey
Roberts, Deputy Corey Schae-
fer, Deputy Jennifer Starowesky
and Deputy Tanya Tipping.
Also honored at the confer-
ence were eight law enforce-
ment officers who received the
designation as School Resource
Officer Practitioners after com-
pleting training through the At-
torney General's Office:
* Deputy Steven M. Bailey -
St. Johns County Sheriffs
Office
Officer Vernita T. Brown -
Orlando Police Department
Officer Charles Eades -
Ocala Police.Department
Officer Jamie Loomis -
Winter Park Police De-
partment
Officer Patricia Morgan -
Titusville Police Depart-
ment
Deputy Stella Ott Volusia
County Sheriff's Office
Deputy Donna Roe Levy.
County Sheriff's Office
Auxiliary Deputy Edward
Upthegrove Hendry
County Sheriffs Office
Since 1988, the Florida Crime
Prevention Training Institute, a
unit of the Attorney General's
Office, has offered the designa-
tion of School Resource Officer
Practitioner. This designation is
conferred to document an indi-


vidual's successful completion
of a series of SRO training
courses offered by the institute.
The officer must complete 130
hours of juvenile-related courses
from the institute or other
authorized training sources.
With the addition of the eight
officers receiving the designa-
tion today, a total of 201 School
Resource Officers have been
certified as practitioners.


Young Farmers
And Ranchers Take
Leadership To The
Next Level
Young farmers and ranchers
from across the state gathered at
Walt Disney World to share
ideas on taking leadership in the
agricultural industry to the next
level at the 2005 Florida Farm
Bureau Federation State Young
Farmer and Rancher Confer-
ence.
The event began with an ad-
dress by Mason Smoak, presi-
dent of the Young Farmers and
Ranchers (YF&R) Leadership
Group. Smoak stated that in its
beginning stages Farm Bureau
leaders recognized the need to
provide opportunities for edu-
cational and leadership devel-
opment for, younger members..
The YF&R program gives Farm
Bureau a continuous source of
strong leadership for the agri-
cultural industry, an industry
which is the backbone of the
nation.
"As agriculturalists," Smoak
said, "we understand above all
the value of the American
farmer and the role of agricul-
ture as it relates to our nation's
national security, health, envi-
ronment and economy. Ameri-
can agriculture provides U.S.
consumers with the safest, most
affordable and abundant food
supply in the world. We do
have a great story to tell."
Speakers emphasized he need
to help the world recognize the
value of agriculture from the
farm gate to the consumer plate.
Workshops included "Advo-
cating Agriculture" and "Better

playing in the water!


Ayers Health And
Rehab Center Hosts
Back To School Party
By Anna Wild
On Wednesday, July 27t",
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
Center hosted their third annual
"Back to School Party" at their
facility. The party allows fam-
ily and partners of Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation to bring chil-
dren to the facility to play. The
center purchased some really
cool water toys and stocked up
on hot dogs, chips, ice cream
and drinks. From 7:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m. the kids had a blast,
literally when the Trenton Fire
Department stopped by to hose
down the kids. The children
had small swimming pools, slip-
n-slides, and a neat water slide.
Not to mention too many water
guns for anyone to be safe from.
getting wet. They played tug of
war and enjoyed breakfast,
lunch and treats!
About 67 kids came out to
enjoy the party, and the resi-
dents were not left out. The
party gave the residents a good
reason to get outside and enjoy
a little fresh air and sunshine.
The residents enjoyed seeing the
children run and play.'It helped
many of them reminisce about
their own childhood days. The
party also gives the employees


at Ayers the chance to show off
their children and grandchildren
to the staff and residents.
Some of the chiklren had
never visited a nursing home be-
fore. For a small child, meeting
so many mature strangers can be
a little intimidating at first. This
gave their parents or grandpar-
ents a chance to explain why
some people live at the nursing
home and how important visi-
tors are to the residents. Other
children were amazed to see
how many people live at the fa-
cility and are anxious to come
back and visit again soon.
It was nice to see the children,
employees and residents of
Ayers Health and Rehab Center
all take time out to enjoy some
summer fun in the sun.

omunencing in the week of July
25-.

S' In Other News
"We've made it into July 2005
anrd we've been making great
progress. We know that we are
way out in the woods and have
chosen to take on a huge task..
Btt times are changing rapidly
aind someone has to fill a need
'that already exists. The. high
cst of gasoline spurs us on.
,An Assembly member has of-
fejed use of 74 S.E. 870h Street
i ,Old Town, the "Storybook

mile from U.S. Highway 19) for
exhibiting and sale of art works
by .members.

We have a few artists exhib-
iting at the present time. Stop by
and become acquainted with
their work. Make arrangements
for exhibiting your work. The
space is limited.
Our plans for "Meet the Art-
ists" and "Open House" have
not been formulated yet. Inter-
ested members wanting to help
with things like arrangements
and refreshments should contact
Barbreez.
What is your input about
holding evening meetings rather
than during the day? Many have
expressed it would be easier for
them. What do you think would
be a good time? Do you want
the meetings to continue at a lo-
cal restaurant, or vary meetings
at members' homes, or at 7.4
S.E. 870" Street? So far, those
asked have thought the latter the
best choice. Our May meeting
was not held in Ann Chewn-
ing's beautiful garden because
she stated there would be more
insects than members. She of-
fered the use of her home.
Members felt that would be an
imposition; the meeting was
held at Storybook House.
Speaking of books, a few of
us are bringing books for use of
members while. visiting Story-
book House. In addition to the
bookcases we, have a 4x7 wall
glass showcase. Another mem-
ber is donating the use of a TV
and VCR.
Annual dues of $12.00 are
due by September.

seum arrangements for artists

The Florida Highway Patrol
(FHP) is investigating the acci-
dent and called upon the
Alachua County Sheriff's Office
Dive Team and FWC to help re-
cover the vehicle.
FWC officials also performed
another function at the site: alli-
gator control.
"When we arrived on scene,
there was an extremely aggres-
sive alligator that definitely
showed all the signs of having
been fed by people," Duncan
said. "The gator showed none of
the natural fear of people that a
gator should exhibit and actu-
ally tracked us as we walked
back and forth on the retaining
wall."
A nuisance alligator trapper
was called and the 11-foot alli-
gator was captured.
"Unfortunately, because it
was so aggressive, we had to
put the gator down for the safety
of the divers in the water," ac-
cording to Duncan.
"This is the result of people
feeding the gators. If you feed
one, you are effectively signing
the creature's death warrant," he
explained. "Another problem
was we couldn't just 'corral' the
gator until the divers were out
of the water. Obviously,'this
gator was equating people with
food. If we had let him go, there
was a distinct possibility that he
could have hurt someone or a
pet in the future."
Duncan used his airboat to get-
out on the water and search for,
the submerged truck using a
pole. All this was done within
100 feet of a large sign stating
that it is illegal to feed the alli-
gators and is punishable by a
$500 fine and/or 60 days in jail.
FHP is continuing the investi-
gation into the accident.
"I really wish I could get the
message across to people that if
these animals are fed, they are
going to become a danger to
public safety and will eventually
end up in the back of a trapper's
truck," Duncan said. "I hate
killing these creatures because
someone broke the law."
FWC officers arrested a
Charlotte County couple July
22nd for deliberately feeding an
alligator; an offense that the
agency's alligator experts say is
often associated with fatal at-
tacks against humans.
"When fed, alligators quickly
lose their natural fear of people
and begin to associate human.
presence with a feeding oppor-
tunity'. This altered behavior
creates a significant danger ~ihat
jeopardizes the safety of anyone
who may come into contact
with that animal," said Harry
Dutton, head of the FWC alli-
gator management section.
FWC officers operated on a
tip from an anonymous source
who had witnessed a man, a
woman and two children feed-
ing an alligator from a boat on
the Peace River. When they re-
ceived another call from the
anonymous source'that the cou-
ple had returned, officers staked
out the area and were able to
video and photograph the feed-
ing. FWC trappers were dis-
patched immediately and re-
moved two aggressive
alligators, 8 foot 9 inches and 5
foot 11 inches in. length, from
the area.
The complete news release
regarding this arrest can be
viewed at: http://myfwc.com/
whatsnew/05/statewide/alligator
feeding.html.
These arrests come in the
wake of an unrelated, fatal alli-,
gator attack that occurred in
Port Charlotte a week earlier.
On the evening :of July 15th,
Kevin Albert Murray, 41, of
North Port, was swimming in a
canal off the Myakka River
when a 12-foot-2-inch alligator
attacked and killed him. Resi-
dents of the area claimed that
alligator had been fed.
It is illegal to feed alligators
and the FWC strongly recom-
mends not feeding other wildlife
where alligators might be pre-


sent. Feeding ducks, turtles or
throwing fish scraps in the wa-
ter where alligators can associ-
ate humans with a feeding op-
portunity, is tantamount to
feeding an alligator. Information
on how to prevent problems
with alligators is listed in the
FWC's "Living with Alligators"
brochure found online at
MyFWC.com/gators.
Anyone having information
about the feeding of alligators is
urged to report the incident to
the toll free Wildlife Alert Hot-
line at (888) 404-3922. Those
reporting violations may remain
anonymous and be eligible for a
reward.
Nuisance alligators should be
reported to the FWC Alligator
Hotline by calling toll free (866)
FWC-GATOR ((866) 392-
4286).

USDA Announces
Loan Rates For 2005-
Crop Peanuts
USDA's Commodity Credit-
Corporation (CCC) has an-
nounced individual 2005-crop
loan rates for four types of pea-
nuts, as required by the 2002
Farm Bill.
The method of computing the
price support levels per peanut
type is the same as last year.
The calculations are based on
the national average loan rate of
$355 per ton, using.the five-year
average quality factors and a
three year. simple average
weight production.
The 2005-crop peanut loan
levels and grades are computed
based on the type, quality and
location -of the 2005 peanut
crop. The loan levels by type
for an average-grade ton of
2005-crop peanuts are:
Runner-type peanuts-
$355.35
Spanish-type peanuts -
$342.24
Valencia-type peanuts -
.$355.24
Virginia-type peanuts
$355.24
To compute the loan value,
premiums and discounts are ap-
plied within a load of peanuts
based on applicable quality
factors. The actual loan level
for an individual lot of peanuts
depends on the percent of the
various sizes of the kernels in
each ton of peanuts. The factors
Used for calculations include'the


premium sound kernels (SMK)
or base whichever is the greatest
value of the load. The percent
.of SMKs are whole kernels
passing across the testing screen
officially designated for each
type of peanut. The base SMKs
are discounted for sound split
(SS), or whole kernels that are
split into two pieces; other ker-
nels (OK); damaged kernels
(DK); and foreign materials
(FM). An additional discount

Florida Receives $2.4
Million For Medicaid
Attorney General Charlie
Crist has announced that the
taxpayer-supported Medicaid
program will receive more than
$2.4 million for Florida as part
of a nationwide settlement with
a healthcare corporation and a
supply company it owns.
A federal investigation re-
vealed that Gambro Healthcare
and its supply company, Gam-
bro Supply Corp., improperly
billed both the federal Medicare
program and the individual
Medicaid programs in each
state. Gambro operated a chain
of clinics that provided care for
end stage kidney disease, a ter-
minal condition that requires

regular dialysis treatment.
Gambro Supply was operated
as a shell company, which al-
lowed the parent company to
bill Medicaid for dialysis sup-
plies at a much higher rate than
otherwise would have been al-
lowed.
"Defrauding Medicaid not
only steals from the needy, but
places an undue burden of re-
sponsibility on the shoulders of
Florida taxpayers," said Crist.
"This settlement will ease some
of that burden and will help en-
sure that medical attention is
available to those who need it
most."
The settlement resolves alle-
gations surrounding Gambro's
bogus Medicaid billings for re-
nal dialysis, unnecessary diag-
nostic tests and associated
medications, as well as allega-
tions of kickback payments to
physicians who refer patients.
The full amount of the nation-
wide settlement is $308.4 mil-
lion, most of which will go to
the federal Medicare program to
provide healthcare for elderly
patients. A total of $36 million
of the nationwide settlement has
been set aside for federal and
state Medicaid programs, with
Florida's federal and state share
set at $2.4 million.
The lawsuit against Gambro
Healthcare and Gambro Supply
Corp. was initiated by a whis-
tleblower in 2001. The settle-
ment was negotiatedby the Jus-
tice Department and the
National Association of Medi-
caid Fraud Control Units.

Members Of Select
Committee To
Protect Private
Property Rights
Florida House Speaker Allen
Bense finalized the appointees
to the House Select Committee
to Protect Private Property
Rights on Friday, July'15, 2005.
"The right to ow n property is
one of the most basic rights we
enjoy as Americans," said
Speaker Bense. "Unfortunately,
due to the recent United States
Supreme Court decision in the
case of Kelo v. City of New
London, there is concern this
most fundamental freedom may
be in jeopardy.
"However, the Court did rec-
ognize that state legislatures can
and 'should set clear guidelines
,fat when~ermnen -domain is ad-
ceptable. Therefore, the Florida
House will take the appropriate
steps to ensure that, in Florida.
eminent domain is only asserted
in situations where the public
necessity and the public benefit
are veiy clear."
The chairman of the commit-
tee will be Rep. Marco Rubio,
and the other members of the
committee include Reps. Dean.
Cannon, Greg Evers, Anitere
Flores, Ron Greeristein, Denise
Grimsley, Arthenia Joyner, Jeff
Kottkamp, Dick Kravitz, Ralph
Poppell, Jack Seller, Dwight
Stansel, and Anthony Trey Tra-
viesa.
The committee is charged
with reviewing Florida's Con-
stitution, statutes, case law and


any other relevant rules or ordi-
nances in order to recommend
necessary action. Meeting times,
locations and other details will
be announced as they are final-

Boating Accident
On Ortega River
Injures One
A vessel colliding with a
boathouse on the Ortega River.
recently resulted in the operator
being injured, according to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
investigators.
Patrick G. Serger, 49, of
Green Cove Springs, was trans-
ported to Shands Hospital in
Jacksonville following the acci-
dent.
When he arrived at the hos-
pital, Serger told FWC law en-
forcement officers that his 27-
year-old son, Christian, had
been on board with him at the
tine of the crash, according to
FWC Officer Chris Jones.
FWC patrol boats, Jackson-
ville Fire and Rescue, the Jack-
sonville Sheriff's Office (JSO)
dive teams and a JSO helicopter
searched the accident site,
looking for the presumed miss-
ing passenger. While the search
continued, FWC officers and
JSO followed leads, attempting
to verify that the son was on
board at the time of the acci-
dent, Jones said.
During the investigation, offi-'
cers learned that a St. Augustine
marina had. surveillance tape
showing Serger leaving on his
vessel alone. Officers were then
able to locate the younger
Serger at his residence who in-
formed officers that he was not
on the vessel at the time of the
accident.
At approximately 7:00 p.m.,
the JSO dive team and FWC of-
ficers called off the search.
Damage estimates to the boat
house are pending as FWC offi-,
cers continue their investigation.


Tax Quiz: How Much
Tax Help Do You
Need?
Now is a good time to decide
whether you plan to prepare you
2004 'tax return yourself or turn
it over to.a professional. The
answer generally depends on
how complicated ,our ta.x
situation is, advises i(he Florida
Institute of Certified Public Ac-
cuntants (FICPA)
The assistance available to
do-it-oourselfers has gro0\n
more sophisticated. The IRS
(www.irs.gov) and other Web
sites provide access to tax rules,
filing procedures and down-
loadable forms. There's also
tax preparation software de-
signed for calculating and filing
lax returns.
Not everyone needs the help
of a CPA or tax professional,
but as your financial situation
becomes more complex, paying
for tax advice and preparation
could save you money in the
long run. The following quiz
% ill assist you with determining
how much help you need.


Do You Have the Time?
The IRS estimates that it can
take roughly 28 1/2 hours to re-
search tax law, organize your
records and complete a standard
1040 return with three common,
schedules Schedule A for
itemized deductions, Schedule
B for interest and dividends and
Schedule D for capital gains.
The Form 1040 instruction
booklet alone is more than 130
pages long.
Are You a Salaried Employee
who Takes the Standard Deduc-
tion?
If so, your return is likely to
be simple and you may be able
to do the work on your own by
using tax preparation software.
Keep in mind that using soft-
ware, as opposed to paper and
pencil greatly reduces the likeli-
hood of mathematical errors.
Are You Technologically
Savvy?
If you are comfortable using
computers and various software
programs, you may benefit from
using tax preparation software.
Today, most tax programs use a
question-and-answer interview
format that prompts you through
the filing process, ascertains
your eligibility for deductions
and credits, and helps you enter
information on the forms.
However, if you are not tech-
nologically savvy and are unac-
customed to using tax software,
you may want to seek some help
from your CPA.
Have You Kept, Abreast of
Changing Tax Laws?
Tax law is constantly chang-
ing and getting more complex.
If you plan, on doing your own
'taxes, it's important that you
keep up-to-date on 'the latest
changes and how they affect
your situation.
Are You Itemizing Your De-
ducuons On Schedule A?
Owning a home is often the
factor that. makes itemizers out
of those who take the standard
deduction. If you own a home,
your mortgage interest and real
estate taxes are deductible on
Schedule A. Most taxpayers
can complete Schedule A on
their own:
Have You Had a Major Life
Change, Such As Marriage Or
Divorce.'
Lifestyle changes often call
for specialized help, both in
terms of taxes and financial.
planning opportunities.
Have You Exercised Incentive

,Traied.SlQocka?,.. i-ii -
Complex returns hate more
gray areas where judgment calls
and expert advice catn make a
significant difference. CPAs and
other tax professionals are typi-
cally well versed in these areas.
Do You Own a Vacation
Home or Rental Property?
Owning a second home, par-
ticularly one that you rent out,
can complicate your tax situa-
tion. For example, depending
on ho'w often you rent the house
and how much you use it your-
self, different tax rules apply.
CPAs can explain the impact of
o nership and rental income on.
your tax liability so you pay .the-
correct amount of tax.
Are You Self-Employed or Do
'You Own a Small Business?


Self-employed individuals
and small business owners are,
frequently the targets of IRS
audits. Working with a CPA
can help your business mini-
mize audit risk.
SDo You Have a High Income
or Live In a State With High In-
come Taxes?
Watch, out! You may be
subject,to the Alternative Mini-
mum Tax or AMT. The AMT,
which eliminates many itemized
deductions, was created to en-
sure that the wealthy pay their
share of taxes. But because the
thresholds have not been ad-
justed regularly for inflation,
more filers are finding them-
selves subject to this tax. If you
think you. might be affected,
consult a CPA.
Keep in mind that tax plan-
ning is a year-round activity.
Don't wait until April to get
your taxes in order. CPAs can
assist you in developing a plan
to maximize savings while
meeting your tax responsibili-
ties, so be sure to consult with a
CPA in your area to learn more
about weathering tax time
wisely.

Kornstein for taking this crime
seriously and protecting Flpr-
ida's children from this sex'*-

The case began in Octo er
2003 when an officer, working
with a Central Florida task fdr~e
on internet crimes against cil-
dren, monitored an internet
chatroom. Hammel struck up an
online conversation with the
agent, who he believed was a
13-year-old boy named "Larry."
Over a period of time, Hamiel
attempted to lure "Larry" to .is
home in Orange County, and'a
one point sent pornographic il-
ages of young boys. After'.a
month of online conversations,
Hammel traveled to a Wal-Mat
in Haines City intending to pick
up "Larry" and take him to'his
home in Winter Garden. Hai-
mel was arrested when he ap-
proached a decoy arranged .by;
agents.
Among the agencies involved
in the joint investigation were

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, AUGUST 4, 2005


Alzheimer's
Association
Seeking Help
The Central and North Flor-
ida Alzheimer's Association
Chapter is embarking on an
immediate educational and phil-
anthropic campaign seeking to
raise corporate assistance for its
niany programs presently serv-
ing persons diagnosed with
Alzheimer's in our 31 county
area. It is estimated by the State
of Florida that our region has
approximately 100,000 Floridi-
ans who are affected by this dis-
ease and other dementia.
*;Age is the greatest risk factor
for Alzheimer's disease. As the
population of Florida and the
Baby Boomer generation con-
tinues to mature, there will be
an estimated 44 percent growth
rate in persons diagnosed with
Alzheimer's by 2025.
Every American will be con-
fronted by the greatest crisis in
healthcare in our lifetime as
costs related to Alzheimer's
continue to soar. The National
Institute on Aging estimates that
the latest direct and indirect cost
of caring for Alzheimer's diag-
nosed individuals is in excess of
$100 billion dollars per year.
The average family lifetime cost
of care for an individual with
Alzheimer's is conservatively
estimated at more than
$174,000 per person diagnosed.
Medicare costs for beneficiaries
with Alzheimer's are expected
to increase 75 percent from
$91,000,000,000 to more than
$160 billion in 2010.


Corporations which have a
robust business presence in
Central and North Florida will
be sent information regarding
myriad state of the art programs
provided by our chapter. Refer-
ral and information services will
also be made available so that
businesses might assist their
customers and employees.
We are asking major corpo-
rations and private individuals
to help us with cash contribu-
tions, volunteer time, and ap-
propriate in-kind donations.
Douglas Allen, the President &
CEO of the Regional Alz-
heimer's Chapter recently stated
"We have a moral obligation to
take care of our greatest genera-
tion and to provide for others
who also suffer from this dis-
ease because it's the right thing
to do. We are grateful for every
financial gift. Our work has
helped thousands of families
cope with unimaginable hard-
ships and we urgently need to
maintain high levels of service
to those in need."

UF/IFAS
Researchers Find
Alternative Crop Foi
Tobacco Farmers
Researchers with the Univer-
,sity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences,
or UF/IFAS have found an al-
ternative source of income to


help replace the revenue to-
bacco farmers are losing. Al-
though there is probably no sin-
gle replacement crop for
tobacco, native wildflower seed
is one alternative crop that could
play a meaningful role in allevi-
ating some of the revenue losses
in the tobacco-based economy
of 20 northern Florida counties,
including Gilchrist.
While Florida wildflower
seed production and marketing
is in its infancy, there is a
growing market. There is a
strong demand for native wild-
flower seed derived from natu-
rally occurring Florida popula-
tions but Florida's fledgling
native wildflower seed industry
cannot meet current and pro-
jected demand. So instead of
purchasing seed from within the
state, agencies such as The
Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) are forced to
buy seed from major seed pro-
ducing states such as Texas.
"We try to look for the Flor-
ida ecotype or the Florida grown,
seed,, because we're getting re-
search back from the universi-
ties that say it has a better re-
seeding value here in Florida
because it's our soil types," said
Tim Allen, Maintenance Rating
Program/Roadside manager for
'FDOT. "Whatever I can't get of
the Florida grown, then I look
towards the other suppliers from
outside the state.
"The Florida co-op has only
been around for a couple of
years now, so I think we've
only bought Florida grown seed
for about three years now."
FDOT is currently the largest
buyer, of wildflower seed in
Florida. Other large land man-
agement agencies, such as Wa-
ter Management Districts, along
with private companies that'
must reclaim large areas of land
also have expressed strong in-
terest in purchasing Florida
ecotypes of native wildflower .
seed.
Goldenmane Tickseed was
the most frequently grown wild-
flower crop in 2002, and the

most profitable species. How-'
ever, since this species is the
one in greatest supply and
supply is expected to increase -
a slight drop in price could oc-
cur within the next few years if
efforts are not made to facilitate
an increase in demand.
Florida ecotype wildflower
seed has potential as a high-
value crop. Depending on spe-
cies, Florida growers are cur-
rently receiving $35 100 per
pound, with typical yields of 20
- 60 pounds per acre.
It should be noted that al-
though wildflower seed produc-
tion can help replace lost to-
bacco revenue, it will require an
investment of time and money.
"Even though seed price is high,
it's not a 'get rich quick' busi-
ness," said UF/IFAS wildflower
researcher, Dr. Jeff Norcini,
who is based at the North Flor-
ida Research and Education
Center in Quincy (NFREC-
Quincy). "New growers should
start small and then expand; be
prepared to invest dollars and
sweat equity."'
According to the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' (FDACS)
publication, "Native Wildflower
Seed Production in Florida,"
wildflowers for seed production
can be grown in field or land-
scape fabric production systems.
Details about theses two types.
of seed production, including
costs, are discussed in this pub-
lication, to which a direct link
can be found online on the,
NFREC-Quincy's website.
Growers interested in starting
a wildflower seed operation can
purchase seed from the Wild-
flower Seed and Plant'Growers
Association, ric., a co-operative
of: lorida growers, which was
established in 2003. If pur-
chased from another source, the
FDACS offers this tip, "Wher-
ever transplant or seed is pur-
chased, make sure that the
original source was a naturally
occurring population in Flor-
ida."
Growers and land owners in-
terested in starting a wildflower
seed operation can .visit

Take Precautions To
Keep Your Summer
Fun, Safe, And
Healthy
Stinging bugs and caterpil-
lars, biting spiders and slither-
ing snakes can all turn your
summer fun into miser pren
ragedd. In' 004, the FkloriJ
Poison Information Center
Network (FPICN) received over
3,100 exposure calls related to a
variety of critters.
SAccording to Deborah H.
Smith, RN, Education Coordi-
nator for the Florida Poison In-
formation Center-Jacksonville
(FPIC-JAX), "Most of us, at
one time or another, have been
stung or bitten by an insect. For
the majority of people, the re-
sulting pain, redness, swelling
and/or itching is temporary.
However, for a small percentage
of people, an insect sting can be
a life-threatening emergency."
The Florida Poison Informa-
tion Center-Jacksonville offers
the following tips to protect
yourself from poisonous warm
weather critters and keep your
summer safe, healthy and fun:
Insects can be quite a nui-
sance. To help keep insects
away, avoid the use of scented
soaps, perfumes and b9dy
sprays. Wear light-colored
clothing. Keep all food and
garbage out of sight and cov-
ered. For a bug bite or sting,
wash the area with mild soap
and water; apply a paste of
baking soda and water until dry,
then apply a cold compress.
Over the counter pain-relieving
medications and creams are
available. Use the medication
only as directed. Anyone com-
plaining of difficulty breathing
or swallowing, dizziness, swel-
ling of the face, lips, eyes or
tongue should seek emergent
medical attention.
Most snakes are harmless. In
order to avoid being bitten, do
not threaten or attempt to avoid
being bitten, do not threaten or
attempt to pick up a snake.
When hiking, wear long pants
and boots and avoid exploration
under rocks and logs. If bitten,
remain calm and wash the area
with mild soap and water. Do


not cut, squeeze or suck the bite
site. Do not apply ice or a tour-
niquet. Immobilize the bite site,
keep it at the heart level or
lower and seek medical atten-'
tion immediately.
The widow and recluse spi-
ders can both be located in
similar hideouts. These include
sheds, barns, attics, basements
and closets. While these spiders
are not aggressive, they will bite
if threatened. Initially, bites
may or may not be painful. The
widow spiders can cause severe
pain, nausea, sweating, dizzi-


ness and muscle cramping. The
most common bite symptoms of
the recluse spiders are pain,
redness, and swelling. Blisters
may form at the bite site and the
bite area may turn purple and
skin cells can die. It is best to
seek prompt medical attention if
experiencing any severe pain,
muscle cramping or if the bite
site is draining fluid and not
healing.
The Portuguese Man-of-War,
Jellyfish and Fire Coral are
among the many marine crea-
tures that can sting. It is not un-
common to encounter one of
these creatures while enjoying
the water. Upon contact, these
marine, creatures can cause se-
vere pain and burning, red le-
sions, welts, nausea, headache,
dizziness and/or muscle spasms.
These marine stings can be
treated by irrigating the affected
area with seawater (not fresh
water), then soak the area in
household vinegar for 30 min-
utes. Any remaining tentacles
can be removed by applying a
paste of baking soda and water,
and scraping the area with a
butter knife or other blunt object
(credit card). Do not rub the

area. When dry, apply a topical
steroid cream every four hours
for sev days. If an allergic
reactik develops or symptoms
do not resolve, then seek medi-
cal attention:
For poisoning emergencies,
call the Poison Information
Center, toll free 24 hours a day
at 800-222-1222 (Voice/TDD).


The healthcare professionals at
the center will immediately re-
spond to poison emergencies
and answer poison-related
questions about insect, snake,:
spider and marine bites and
stings, and other potentially
dangerous substances.

ELECTRIC METER READER:
It's not what you think it is. Very
few people can handle the day-to-
day rigors of this job and stay with
it. You must be dedicated, hard
working and physically tough
enough to handle the fast pace and
all the obstacles that only a rural
meter reader can face. Every day
you will face the elements of the
weather, various types of insects,
bad dogs and other aggressive ani-
mals. During the first six months
of your employment you will be
required to study and complete a
series of job-related lessons. Also,
you will be expected to learn how
to use our line maps. HS diploma
or GED is required, along with a
good driving record. Excellent
wage progression and benefits.
Apply at Central Florida Electric
Cooperative, 1124 N. Young
Blvd., Chiefland or e-mail your re-
sume to hr@cfec.com. Applica-
tion deadline is 5 PM, 8/15/05. All
selected candidates are subject to a
pre-employment physical, drug
test and background check as a
condition of employment. Drug

.' Suwannee River Friends Of The NRA Hold

V Record Fund-Raising Banquet

S.. Thursday Night


Gilchrist Commission
Approves Proposed
Courthouse Addition
.(Continued from Page Two)
ject will come in at the $2 mil-
,lion proposed estimate.
Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford said that he feels the pro-
posed addition will look great
along with the existing court-
'house.
"It appears that the building
will be out of balance as the
new judicial facility will be on
the east end of the courthouse,"
explained Commission Chair-
man Mitchell Gentry. The ar-
chitect explained that the exte-


rior appearance could be
balanced out with the planting
of trees on the southwest corner
of the courtyard.
The commission chairman
also pointed out that it appears
that the new judicial addition
will have a large amount of flat
roof. "I am not a fan of flat
roofs," Commissioner Gentry-
stated.
The architect explained that
the roofs would not actually be
flat. Each of the roofs will be
designed and when constructed
correctly will alleviate water
from puddling on the roofs.
Gilchrist County Judge Ed-
ward Philman discussed the
proposed judicial addition onto


the courthouse. "I think the pro-
posed perspective of the con-
struction plan is a good concept
of what has been determined,"
Judge Philman said.
"Mr. Lloyd Kelly and the
DLR Group have been a real
compliment to work with in-
volving the plans for the judicial
addition," Commissioner Randy
Durden explained.
Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford made a motion to go for-
ward with the proposed change
involving the judicial addition
of the Gilchrist County Court-
house. Commissioner Keniick
Thomas gave a second to the
motion before the board voted
5-0 in favor of the motion.


Friends of the National Rifle
Association representing the
Suwannee River Valley came
together Thursday night to sup-
port their second amendment
rights and set a new record for
revenues raised for the NRA.
The banquet, held Thursday
night, had over 300 attending
and raised over $25,000.
The NRA in the Tri-County
area has been very active in
providing youth programs in-
volving Eddie Eagle (the NRA
mascot). This animated charac-
ter has worked closely with the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice and other local agencies in-
volving NRA programs. Gil-
christ County 4-H youth have
also received grants to provide
educational programs in shoot-
ing sports in 4-H clubs.
The program opened at 5:30
p.m. to allow supporters time to
review and participate in the
many games and become in-
volved in the silent auction.
Those attending also had the
opportunity to fellowship and
take a close look at the incredi-
ble paintings, bronze sculptures
and guns that were available to
be won and auctioned to the
highest bidder later in the pro-


gram.
The NRA members and
guests were welcomed by Patty
Galyean, chairman of the Su-
wannee River Friends of the
NRA committee. She also rec-,
ognized members of the com-
mittee that have done an out-
standing job in organizing this
annual event. Committee mem-
bers are: Donald Campbell, Roy
Langford, Johnny Smith, Randy
Durden, Joe Gilliam, Damon
Leggett, Kenrick Thomas, Bud
Fisher, Jake Koens, Rosemary
McDaniel, and David Turner.
Al Hammond, NRA Repre-
sentative in Florida, thanked the
tremendous crowd for support-
ing the National Rifle Associa-
tion and attending this event. He
also introduced Bill Elrod, the
auctioneer that does an out-
standing job to help the NRA
conduct these types of programs
in many areas of the state.

$5.6 million from a settlement
with Fast Payday Loans, for-
merly known as Florida Auto
Loans, relating to allegations
that the company forced bor-
rowers to buy travel club mem-
berships in order to obtain title
loans. The company agreed to
pay up that amount in restitution
and debt forgiveness, stemming
from activities that claimed
37,000 victims in Florida.
With 43 retail outlets across
the state, Florida Auto Loans
sold travel club memberships
offered by Nation Safe Drivers,
Inc., to more than 37,000 con-
sumers between January 2001
and May 2004. In many cases,
Florida Auto Loans forced cus-
tomers to add $200 to $900
travel club memberships to the
price of a title loan. Victims are
receiving a mailer from Direct
Mail Express, a company hired
to contact the 37,000 victims in
this case.
"Companies must deal fairly
with our citizens, especially
when those citizens come to
them in need," said Crist. "For
a company to tack on unwanted
travel club memberships adds
insult to injury. Florida Auto
Loans duped Florida consumers,
and now the company must pay
for it."
Florida Auto Loans has


agreed to pay up to $3.5 million
in restitution and to forgive
more than $2.1 million of out-
standing consumer debt. Con-
sumers may be able to receive
up to 100 percent of their
money back, depending on the
number of consumers who seek
restitution from the settlement
fund. Under the settlement, the
company will not sell any prod-
ucts or services in conjunction
with payday loans without per-
mission from state regulators.
The Attorney General's investi-
gation into the company's con-
sumer lending' practices was
opened in November 2003 at the
request of the state Office of Fi-
nancial Regulation.
Floridians who obtained a ti-
tle loan from Florida Auto
Loans between January 2001
and May 2004 may be eligible
for restitution for sums paid for
a Nation Safe Drivers travel
club membership. Consumers
with additional questions should
call the company toll-free at 1-
800-922-8803.

Liberty without learning is
always in peril; learning without
liberty is always in vain.
--John F. Kennedy

Gilchrist County Courthouse addition will look like when it is completed. This
rendition was made available by the DLR Group which is the architectural firm
involved in the project with the Alexander Group.
