Stinger Blade And Drag System

Is Receiving High Praise From

County Residents Traveling On

Graded Roads


By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Board
of Commissioners has taken a
step in.the direction to improve
the graded roads in the county
by using a new type of grader
(stinger blade) to cut and rework
the top one to two inches of
lime rock on the graded county
roads.
Gilchrist County Commis-
sioner Kenrick Thomas ex-
plained that he and the Road
Department Superintendent vis-
ited neighboring Suwannee
County sometime ago to take a
closer look at their stinger blade
and drag, system they are cur-
rently, using to improve their
graded roads.
Suwannee County, in the
Branford area, uses three stinger
blades and three drags to main-
tain their county graded roads.
The stinger blade is a strip of
steel that has small roller-type
cutting teeth spread out evenly
along the bottom cutting surface
of the grader blade.
This new system was im-
plemented on June 1, 2005
when the Commission approved

blade. The price included the in-
stallation of the blade on a


grader. The special design 12-
foot drag has two heavy I-beams
that are connected to the width

used to level out and knock
down the larger portion of lime
rock in front of a series of metal
tooth type fingers that complete
the smoothing process.
At the present time Gilchrist
County is operating with two
stinger blades and a single drag.
On Wednesday, August 3rd,

Old Building
By Cindy Jo Ayers
Demolition of one of Tren-

place this week. The northern
portion of Southern Tire and
Brake is being torn down. The
business owner, Doug Crawford
of Trenton said, "I hate to tear
down such an old building but it
was time, the old wooden por-

shape" Crawford went on to say
that land where the building
stood will be used at this time
for parking.
Mr. Crawford also said that
he plans to modernize the tire

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
By the looks of the two fish
that are being held by Mark
Schuler and Billy Rogers, this
fishing trip was enjoyable. I too,
was able to catch a red fish, but
mine was only 28.5 inches.
Each of the fish that were
caught by Mark and Billy were
40 inches in length and weighed
20 pounds each.
We were fishing out from
Suwannee in 63 feet of water
when we pulled up on a spot
where we had caught red
grouper in the past. As we
began to drift back 'on this
location, I had a good bite and
was reeling in the fish. Just as I
reached down 'to pull the red
fish over the side of the boat,
Billy and Mark both gasped as
they were both hooked up on
good fish. Mark felt sure that he
was fighting a 20 pound grouper
but Billy could only work to
keep the fish from pulling his
pole out of his hands.
I looked at the bottom


machine and the entire screen
was colored in blue and green. I
could tell by the machine that
the' bottom had come alive with
fish.

It took the two guys a few
minutes to bring their fish to the
surface. By that time the red
fish had rolled over on !the
surface and the bladders of both
fish were outside of their
mouths. The guys released the
fish but after a few minutes,
decided to go and try to.revive
them. When we got to the first
fish, we took an ice pick and
punctured the bladder and
forced it back down the fish's
mouth. The guys decided to do
the same procedure on the
second fish in order for him to
return to the depths of the
bottom. After turning the
second fish loose, both fish
swam back to the depths of the
sea.

We were lucky to catch
enough fish to eat, but the heat
of August sure makes fishing
tough.

Former Insurance
Agent Ronald Rogart
Charged With
Swindling Elders
Florida's Chief Financial Of-
ficer Tom Gallagher recently
announced the arrest of a man
accused of defrauding at least
nine South Florida senior citi-
zens by offering them a quote
for one level of long-term care
insurance but selling them an-
other.
Ronald S. Rogart, 60, was ar-
rested Sunday, July 31, 2005 in
Gilchrist County but lived in
Miami Beach during the inves-
tigation by the Department of
Financial Services' Division of
Agent and Agency Services,
Bureau of Investigation, and the
Division, of Insurance Fraud.
The alleged fraud occurred be-
tween 2002 and 2004. The de-
partment revoked Rogart's
agent licenses in December.
"This man targeted victims
between the ages of 72 and 86
and fed on their fears and
anxieties about aging," said
Gallagher, who oversees the de-
partment. "One of our highest
priorities is 'protecting our most
vulnerable citizens, and we will
continue to aggressive el pursue
those who try to take advantage
of them."
Rogart is charged with nine
counts each of elder exploitation
and insurance fraud and is being
held in the Gilchrist County Jail
on a $99,000 bond. He is ex-.


pected to be ex
Florida, and if
up to five yea
each of the i
counts and up
prison on each
exploitation.

Advisors." Rogart would meet
at the customer's home or
apartment where he would ex-
plain coverage levels from a va-
riety of insurance companies.
But detectives said the prices he
quoted were less than the actual
cost of the policy, so Rogart
would submit an application
that reflected a lower level of
coverage that matched the quote
he gave the customer. When he
received the policy, he would
replace the real Schedule Page
with a forged one so the clients
wouldn't know they had been
sold less coverage than what
they had asked to buy. But a
customer filed a complaint after
a door-to-door insurance agent
pointed out disparities in the
policy.
The Department of Financial
Services, Division of Insurance
Fraud, investigates various
forms of fraud in insurance, in-
cluding health, life, auto, prop-
erty and workers' compensation
insurance. Anyone with infor-
mation about this case or an-
other possible fraud scheme
should call the department's
Fraud Hotline at 800-378-0445.
A reward of up to $25,000 may
be offered for information
leading to an arrest and convic-
tion.

Renovate My Family
(Kent Heaton)


Reality shows are the norm for television today.
People have become fascinated with the "real life
drama" of other people's lives and how they react
to adverse situations. One of the genre's of reality
spows are the makeover programs where families
receive new homes, new looks and new every-
thing. The criterion for families to be considered
is based upon their needs, their sacrifice for others
or some type, of tragedy befalling them. No one
can doubt the wonderful blessings many people
have received from others as they have their
homes remodeled, their appearance enhanced and
new hope given to their lives. The attention given
to programs such as this shows how needy people
are given such wonderful gifts from others. It
speaks well of many communities who are willing
to go to such extremes to help their fellow man.
However (and there is always a however), a
point that is missing in these exercises of human
benevolence is the true reality\ of life. While the
remodeling, remaking and renewing of lives are
wonderful for television, when the lights go off,
the cameras stop humming and the crowds go
home life remains in much the same manner it
was before. The families are able to enjoy. life
more than before the makeover but the change has
taken place largely only on the outside. Renovat-
ing a family takes more than a nice home, nice
looks and nice clothes.
Society portrays happiness as the attainment of
material things. While tragedy and sorrow fall
upon all of us, the true worth of reality is found in
the renewal of the inward person. These are the
changes that are worth living for. If you take a
bum off the street and dress him in a $1,000 suit -
you have a bum in a $1,000 suit. The application
is that window dressing does not solve the movie
pressing needs of man. The character of a man or
the inward self must be changed to find true ful-
fillment.
King Solomon found all the things that men
seek for today. He found wisdom (Ecclesiastes
1:12-18); pleasure and wealth (2:1-11) and pon-
dered fame (1:1-11) but all was vanity. The word


vanity is something that is of "no profit under the
sun" (2:11). There is joy and excitement at a new
bike but after time, it's neglected,and forgotten.
Why? Material things rust and break down in time
and are soon laid aside. An interesting study for
reality shows would be the follow up ten years (or
more) later when the families have lived in their
new homes and the question is examined as to
how these things truly changed their lives.
Life changes measured by material gain are
fleeting. Changes made to the life of a person will
last forever. The Apostle Paul described the value
of changing the inner person rather than focus on
the outer person. "For which cause we faint not;
but though our outward man perish, yet the in-
ward man is renewed day by day. For our light
affliction, which is but for a moment, works for
us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of
glory; While we look not at the things which are
seen, but at the things which are not seen: for
the things which are seen are temporal; but the
things which are not seen are eternal" (2 Corin-
thians 4:16-18). Seeking those things that are
above (Colossians.3:1,2) have true worth; seeking
the things of this earth have no lasting value (2 Pe-
ter 3:10).
Jesus did not come to change the economic, po-
litical or social status of man He came to im-
press His life upon their hearts. From hearts filled
with the will of Jesus Christ, changes will take
place that are eternal. "For what shall it profit a
man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose
his own soul? Or what shall a man give in ex-
change for his soul" (Mark 8:36-37)? Renovation
of the family can'only take place when Christ is
the center of the family, the central theme of our
lives, valued above all earthly possessions and
whose footsteps we carefully walk after each day.
Jesus told the woman at the well in John 4:13-14:
"Whosoever drinks of this, water shall thirst
again: But whosoever drinks of the water that I
shall give him shall never thirst; but the water
that I shall give him shall be in him a well of wa-
ter springing up into everlasting life."

Southern Tire
Clearing Away
Old Building
(Continued from Page One)
Tire is located in the remaining
block portion of the building.
Crawford has also saved the old
parts' department door and
plans to include it in the build-
ing sometime in the future.
Tim Lindsey of Lindsey Land
Clearing and Site Prep, Inc. is
doing the demolition work. Mr.
Lindsey said the work will be
complete some time next week.
The portion of the building
that is being removed was once.
the parts' department of the
former Lee Roberts Motors.
Dodge and Plymouth automo-
biles were sold at Lee Roberts
Motors during the early years of
the longtime Trenton company.
Mr. Lee Roberts, owner of the
business, later sold Allis-
Chalmers and David Brown
tractors, combines and farm
equipment.
In 1955 Mrs. Etta Joyner went
to work for Mr. Roberts doing
the bookkeeping. Another long-
time employee of Lee Roberts
lMotors was Mr. Bud Clapp who
ran the parts' counter. Mrs. Joy-
ner, her son Buddy and Wendell
Wright bought the business
from Mr. Roberts. They ran it
together for several years. Sev-
eral years later the Joyners
bought out Mr. Wright.,
Lifelong Trenton resident
Eudell Parrish said that the
backside of the property next to
the tracks was once home to a
cotton gin. He remembered
playing in the closed down gin
when he was a boy. He also re-
membered that Mr. Jessie Ar-
rington once had a grocery store
on the northern portion of the
property. Mr. E. J. Lord later
ran a grocery store in the same
location for a while. Mr. Jessie
Arrington was the father-in-law
of Mr. Lee Roberts. It was re-
ported that at one a Mr. Autman
had a mule lot and stable in the
same area where Southern Tire
is located today.
Mr. Crawford and his staff are
working diligently to bring a
nicer more up to date tire store
to the people of Gilchrist
County.

Tri-County Marine
Corps League Plan
Ribbon Cutting At
Hardee House
On Saturday August 20th at
5:00 p.m., the Chiefland Cham-
ber of Commerce officials will
share the ribbon cutting cere-
mony with the Tri-County MCL
& Auxiliary in celebration of
the Corps' new meeting house;
the Historic Hardee House.
A few months back the
Corps-Detachment 1018, to-
gether with its Auxiliary, ac-
quired the home and are now
using it for their new meeting
house.
The ceremony events will in-
clude a trike donation to a local
child, and a homecoming speech
by Commandant Harry Hop-
wood. The league eventually
plans to turn the Hardee House
into a museum, conducting
tours for school children and
other organizations. There is
much history in this "cracker
house."
.Until its sale some 15 years
ago, the house remained occu-
pied by members of the Hardee
family. With the help of the
new owners, the house was
moved in order to save it. It is
now located two'blocks from its
original location but still situ-
ated on the old plantation land,
at 6450 N.W.. 110th Street in
Chiefland.
Auxiliary member and secre-
tary/treasurer Mary Byrd Chris-
tians has devoted a great deal of
time researching the Hardee
House. She has a lot of infor-
mation to add about the house
whef it becomes the museum
we are working towards, and
hopes to share with all of the
Tri-County area. She states that
although its appearance is not
quite as grand, it still has a
breath of life and can speak to
our hearts as part of Florida's
rural heritage.
When the Tri-County MCL
was formed the Chiefland VFW
Post 5626 shared their post as a
meeting place for the Marines.
After the league grew in number
we were invited to use the DAV
Hall in Cross City. The MCL &
Auxiliary members wish to

and the like went into hiberna-
tion for the coming autumn and
winter days ahead. They, like
white shoes, gloves and hand-
bags, would not be a part of our
lives again until Memorial Day,
which by the way was known
back then as Decoration Day.
But, time marches on and to-
day's schools march to a differ-
ent drummer for sure.
Backpacks, costing sometimes
up to $40 have replaced the.
simple strap or belt we used to
carry our books and no one was
ever driven to school. There
were no snow days, teacher's
work days or early release days.
Like mail carriers neither wind,
rain, hail, sleet, snow, hell or
high water was a valid excuse
for even being late, much less
being absent. If you lived more
than a mile from school you
could bring your lunch and buy
milk for three cents. Lunches
were wrapped in wax paper,
most often old bread wrappers,
and put in a brown paper
"sack." No fancy, cute, frozen
thing to keep it cold. No refrig-
eration, just your lunch. The
funny thing is, nothing ever
spoiled and no one ever got sick
and...we ate it and were grate-
ful for whatever was in that
sack.
What's even funnier is the
fact that without all the new
fangled folderol such as the
FCAT, no child was left behind.
Well, not that some, sometimes,
didn't pass, but if they didn't, it
wasn't the whole world's
fault...it was theirs. I know
that's a really old-fashioned
idea, being responsible for your
own actions, but it seemed to
make such good sense. I mean,
if you didn't do your assign-
ments or your homework, if you
misbehaved or played hookey,
if you didn't pay attention in
class, "You," not the school
system, not society, not the
teacher or your parents, were to
blame: The accuse and excuse
game didn't work.
Of course there were children
with special i needs and special
circumstances but they were
met by teachers who really were
a part of your family. I don't
know if they were ever young.
I don't ever remember having a
young or married teacher. The
students were their whole lives.
Not only teachers but neighbors
as well helped to mold character


and develop values in children.
The neighborhood's children
were everyone's children and
we knew and believed it took a
village to raise a child.
So, school has started, every
day'it gets light later and dark
sooner. While the sun is as re-
lentless as ever we know that all
too soon the holidays will be
sneaking up on us so...be pre-
pared...I've warned you.
And on Wednesday, August
3rd, that was what was on the
minds of several of the 23 Joy-
ful Hearts that met to craft and
quilt another hot humid morn-
ing away. Quite a few were
busy with projects that will fill
someone's heart with joy on
Christmas day.
Paulene Martin has pulled out
her old chicken scratch patterns
and is having a go at that. Bar-
bara Strom, Rita Simcoe,
Marvine Deer, Pat Luka, and
Evelyn Wood were all helping
with the pinning of our newest
club quilt, which will truly be
one of a kind.
Ruth Wilkerson, Alice Binns,
Martha Foster, Matty Turner,
Jackie Moore and Cathy Strom
were heavy into their Swedish
weaving, several of which have
been earmarked for Christmas
gifts.
Ann Mangone was doing her
magic to an ever so interesting
piece of wildlife embroidery
work while Ann Taylor and my-
self continued with our cross-
stitch pillowcases. Lera Town-
send was as busy as a bee with
her newest embroidery en-
deavor as well.
Heidi Kamp, who is feeling
much better; was crocheting as
was Sylvia Arthur, who has a
great teacher, Leona Wirta, who
was also crocheting. Alberta
Swanner has taken a rest from
her plastic canvas crosses and
was crocheting blocks for a
beautiful white with pink roses
afghan.
And speaking of the Swan-
ners, Alberta's husband, Jimmy
had a two page article about
him and his military experience
during World War II in the Lake
City Reporter. It was very in-
teresting and had a great picture
of Jimmy when he was a hand-


some young man in uniform and
we teased Alberta about landing
such a catch.
Elaine Nemeth, who quilts
circles around us all, brought
several more she's finished and
several more started. One is
featuring birds and bird-
houses...oh so cute. She also
gave us the results of our survey
and it pretty much was as ex-
pected with no surprises.
Maxine Hale had a hand in
trying to help pin our club quilt
but there were so many helping
hands she gave it up and just
chatted with everyone and
cheered them on, along with
Barbara Myrick.
Our "Make It and Take It"
day on Wednesday, July 27th
had 16 Joyful Hearts in atten-
dance. Under the watchful eyes
of both 'Barbara's, Paulene,
Elaine, Ruth, Marvine, both
Anns and a guest, Lurie Twist
all worked on mosaic projects.
Alberta busied herself cro-
cheting while Evelyn knitted.
Four of the Swedish weavers,
Alice, Jackie, Lu and Matty,
were busy as beavers with their
works in progress.
Rita stopped by to give out
plants to those who wanted
them. Seems some of her plants
were threatening to take over
and needed to be thinned out.
Cathy collected money from
those not wearing their name
tags and maintained order, as if
that's possible.
Our "Make It and Take It"
days are getting to be as popular
as our regular meeting days.
The next one will be on
Wednesday, August 31".
Evelyn is going to teach us how
to make string art Christmas or-
naments.
Our next regular meeting will
be on Wednesday, August 17h.
We hope everyone will be home
from trips, free of doctor ap-
pointments, family obligations
and illness and that we will
have a full house. And all
God's children said, "Amen."
Thank goodness the last few
days have brought us not only a
brief release from, the oppres-
sive heat we've been experi-
encing but those most
welcomed afternoon thunder-

Gilchrist Girls Hit A
Grand Slam In
Tampa
Gilchrist County was fortu-
nate to have three outstanding
young ladies represent them at
Pre Teen Florida Scholarship &
Recognition Program vying for
over $ 5000.00 in educational
bonds, prizes and awards, on
July 22-24 at the Tampa Bay
Hyatt.
IT'S NOT A BEAUTY
PAGAENT! Pre Teen America
is for girls ages 7 12 who have
achieved honor roll status. The
girls compete in two age groups,
7-9 as a junior and 10-12 as a
senior. The girls submit appli-
cations to be screened for the
state from there the state final-
ists are chosen.
Pre-program judging is done
before the girls even arrive at
the program. There were seven
categories in which the girls
were judged including: (1) Aca-
demic Achievements, (2) Vol-
unteer Service to Church and
Community, (3) School Honors
and Activities and (4) Devel-
opment of Personal Skills and
Abilities. Once at the program
the girls were first given a Gen-
eral Knowledge-ability Test,
like "Who wants to be a Mil-
lionaire?' questions which is
graded. On Saturday afternoon
the girls were individually in-
terviewed by three different
judges and scored on their re-
sponses and attitude. On Satur-
day evening they presented
themselves on stage to the pub-
lic, which was also scored.
On Sunday, to start off the
2005 Florida Pre Teen Finals,
all the girls performed a re-
hearsed dance number that in-
volves audience participation.
This year's theme was the
Rockin' Fifties. For the finals
each girl's scores from all of the
seven categories are totaled, and
then the semi-finalists are se-
lected.
As a semi-finalist the -girls
were presented with a random
question on stage to answer at
that very moment. Judging is
done on these answers as well.
From there the titles are given
out. All the girls are winners
just for being part of this pro-
gram. So you see THIS IS NOT
A BEAUTY PAGAENT! In
addition to the seven categories
there was an optional Talent
and/or Speech competition and
all the girls are welcome to
compete for additional scholar-
ship monies.
It is an honor and a great op-
portunity to be chosen as a state
finalist at the Florida Pre Teen


Shown is Shae Ridgeway, a

24 semi-finalists. Shae Ridge-
way from Trenton Elementary
School and Kailey Roux from

competed in the junior division
and Kristen Burke from Bell

Administration side of Trenton Pediatrics and

everyone is welcome to attend.


"How about putting an ad in

gested.
Working at the post office,
I'm used to dealing with a
moody public. So when one
irate customer stormed my desk,
I responded in my calmest
voice," What's the trouble?"
"I went out this morning," she
began, "and when I came home
I found a card saying the mail-
man tried to deliver a package
but no one was home. My hus-
band was in all morning. He
never heard a thing!"
After apologizing, I got her
parcel.
"Oh, good," she gushed.
"We've been waiting for this
for ages."
"What is it?" I asked.
"My husband's new hearing

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Knowing God
By Clay Harrison
There's a sense of peace and
comfort
That comes from knowing God,
Just knowing He's there with
you
Wherever you may trod.
In the valley of the shadow
Or on a mountaintop,
You can feel His hand upon you
When you're tired enough to
drop.
You can almost hear Him whis-
per
Words of comfort in your ear,
For His presence is a lighthouse
That vanquishes your fear!
Sometimes there is a melody
That only you can hear,
For it's played upon your heart-
strings
In love notes sweet and clear.
There's a spiritual awakening
That will not let you nod...
There's a sense of peace and
comfort
That comes from knowing God!

Our 2006 calendars should be in shortly. Reserve yours NOW

theme. This is one of our fund-raisers, please help us support the
community.
The 2006 MEMBERSHIP cards are in and available. All eligible
veterans in the Tri-County area are welcome to join. Membership is
the backbone of any organization. We need your support and we
offer a wide variety of benefits to our members. Contact Dean
Williams for info (386) 454-8143.
At this moment, America's finest young men and women are
serving in harm's way on OUR behalf in places hundreds of miles
from our shores. In Iraq, they liberated oppressed people. In
Afghanistan, the Philippines, the Middle East and even here at home,
they are preventing another SEPT. 11th. In over 130 countries, the
U.S. military is finding and eliminating terrorists committed to
destroying our way of life. As crucial as these times are, however,
America's service personnel find their strength in the unfailing
support of family, friends, and the nation they serve.
It is important that everyone gives them all the support possible.
Veterans of past wars know how much encouragement it brings to
receive a letter or care package from the folks back home. While
today's war on terrorism has altered the ways to say "Thank You"
because of security requirements,. there are many ways that
Americans of all ages can show support for our troops, donate blood,
purchase a flag or a sign to display proudly in front of your home.
Organize a prayer vigil at your church or volunteer at the VA
HOSPITAL. How you show your appreciation to our troops is up to
you.
As long as'these dedicated Americans fight for us, we will be here
for them. Indeed, they are our nation's newest veterans. The
American Legion salutes them and asks you to join us in giving them
our enduring support.
Always remember that FREEDOM is NOT FREE. Please consider
an American Legion membership to help support our troops and our
way of life. Membership is power in Washington.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 4th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
It seems that on Thursdays we
have lots of visitors and
friends come to see what we
do. It was great to have Sher-
iff Johnny Smith and Deputy
Sheffield to come and visit so
many people they know and
Then have lunch with us. We
also had people from New Port
Richey, Plant City and
Gainesville, as well as
Chiefland and Trenton. We
did have a busy day and en-
joyed every minute of it.
B r enda Rymanowiez
brought in a "Cathedral Win-
dow" and needed to know how
to take care of it. We try to
help anyone with treasures and
this is one. The quilt was a
gift and we told her to never
wash it or use it for cover and
how to fold, roll and open it to
keep it as it is. It could be
hung on a quilt rack but it
would need to be re-folded
About every six months. In
time most that come in wish
they had taken better care of
their priceless quilts.
Quilting is going well on all
three quilts. Goldie was back
after visiting in Ocala. It
won't be long until we start on
three more.
Lunch was ,so good with
meat loaf, rice, corn fritters,
potato salad, baked chicken,
mustard greens, corn bread,
garlic bread, Betty's coconut
pie, lots of cakes and so much
more. We had 19 members and
15 visitors.

You determine your earning

potential!


Curb Appeal
- Many of you may have heard
this new catch phrase in Real
Estate, "Curb Appeal". There
are TV shows about it, Buyers
know it, and many Realtors like
to talk about it.
- Curb Appeal is just as simple
as it sounds, the Appeal your
home has from the curb. It is
human nature to make
judgments based on first
impressions. No matter what is
on the inside, the potential
Buyer will make a decision
based on your home's Curb
Appeal. Sometimes they will
even pass on a house before
seeing the inside, just based on
the view from the street.
- Drive up to your house as if it
was the first time you have ever
laid eyes on your home. Be
critical look at everything. Try
to remember when you first
bought your house, what did the
yard look like then, what little
touches did the Seller add that
made you get those goose
bumps that say "this is the one!"
- Your home's Curb Appeal can
be enhanced in many ways.
Landscaping is a nice touch,
mow the lawn, and keep any
shrubs or small trees trimmed.
Pick up toys and other items that
may be left out by family
members. You may need to paint
and pressure wash the entryway
and front of the house a good
cleaning is always a good start.

road that has been graded by the
traditional method of taking off
lime rock from the crest of the
surface and spreading it out to
the edges, will now be graded

This new method has the stinger
blade cutting the rock surface
including the larger lime rocks
into much smaller pieces. As the

face of the road, the washouts
and bumpy washboard surface
is smoothed out. A tractor and
drag are then used to continue to
smooth out the road surface so it
will be like new for the traffic in
that area.
On Wednesday morning
tractor driver and drag operator
Chester Ruggles began to drag
the new surface of SW 32nd
Place. "I think the new system
is better," Ruggles explained.


The new system is estimated
to allow a grader and tractor op-
erator to cover an average of 20-
25 miles in a day. The average
amount of road improved each
day is based on the condition of
the road, Justin Watson ex-
plained.
The traditional style of
grading the roads is when a
grader operator actually re-
positions the lime rock to im-
prove the surface of the road.
Grading of the road is this man-
ner takes longer to complete and
requires more lime rock to be
placed on the road surface. A
grader will average 10-12 miles
a day when maintaining the road
through the traditional grading
process, Watson said.
Many county residents that
have experienced the new
grading procedure by traveling
on the new surface are pleased.
"We have received a lot of
compliments in support of the
new stinger grading system,"
explained Commissioner Ken-
rick Thomas.
The Road Department has
proposed the purchase of two
additional stinger blades during
the 2005-2006 fiscal year. "The
future of improving graded
roads in Gilchrist County is
through the stinger blade sys-
tem," Commissioner Thomas
added.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den also reported that he too has
received a lot of compliments
from residents that like the new
road grading system.

always wants to feel that he is
"walking in his dad's foot-
steps," by exhibiting VIRTUE

his motto of "treating your fel-
low man the way you want to be
treated," and by that Mr. Bryant,
one of many in Gilchrist

Gilchrist County is a County of
Character because it is a
County that Cares.
