Spring Ridge And North Gilchrist Gilchrist County Lifting Of Dump Fees For

Fire Departments Receive Bagged Household Garbage

Homeland Security Grants For Facts Concerning Solid Waste Special Assessment


Department of Homeland
Security (DHS) recently
announced 2,040 grants to fire
departments throughout the
United States in the first round
of the Fiscal Year 2005
Assistance to Firefighters Grant
Program (AFGP). The AFG
program will issue
approximately 5,500 awards
worth $600 million in direct
assistance to firefighters and
first responders throughout the
country, demonstrating
Homeland Security's
commitment to ensuring that
America's firefighters have the.
resources they need to protect
their communities.
Gilchrist County recently
received notification that Spring
Ridge Volunteer Fire
Department will be receiving a
$241,000 grant that will allow
the county to purchase a new
Class A Pumper. "This engine
will have a 1,000-gallon water
supply and is capable of
pumping 1,250 gallons, a.
minute," explained Ron
McQueen. This unit will also
have the compression air-foam
system that allows the use of
foam with a water mixture for a
more extensive usage.
Gilchrist County also
received notification that North
Gilchrist Volunteer Fire
Department has been awarded a
$72,000 grant to purchase a new
brush truck. This unit will have


Bell Bulldogs
Defeats Providence
In Kickoff Classic
Following A
Weather Delay
The Bell Bulldogs defeated
Providence of Jacksonville
Friday night as senior running
back Todd Scaggs dashed
through the Stallion's defense
for 2 touchdowns and 118 yards
for the hosts.
Friday night football fans
turned out to see the game, but
an afternoon thunderstorm
forced the action on the field to
be delayed until 8:00 p.m.
After the game got
underway the fans from both
teams were sitting on the edge
of their bleachers hanging on
awaiting the next exciting play.
Providence was the first to score
when Cory Penix kicked an 18-
yard field goal with 7:34
remaining in the first quarter for
a 3-0 lead.
The Bulldogs quickly got


water capacity of 400-500
gallons and will be a quick
response unit. Both of these
units will significantly increase
the response time and the ability
for the volunteer fire
departments' effectiveness.
"We recognize the
importance of the Fire Act
Grants to our nation's fire.
departments and we will
continue to work closely with
the fire service community to
meet their needs," added Matt
Mayer, Acting Executive
Director of the Office for State
and Local Government
Coordination and Preparedness
(SLGCP).
This first round of grants
provides more than
$205,360,839 to help local fire
departments and emergency
medical services organizations
purchase or receive training,
first responder health and safety
programs, equipment and
response vehicles.
The Assistance f to
Firefighters Grant Program
includes grants to 41 fire
departments and emergency
medical services organization in
Florida.

their offense underway and
began a drive that would result
in a lead change. Todd Scaggs
was the Bulldog running back
that had the greatest success
Friday night running through
the Stallions defense. With 3:30
left in the first quarter, Scaggs
broke away from the
Providence defense and dashed
45-yards for the touchdown.
Bell took a 6-3 lead in this
game.
The second quarter was well
played by both teams, but no
points were scored.
The third period got off to a
blazing start for the Bulldogs.
Scaggs again broke loose
through the defense and scored
on a 53-yard touchdown run. He
also kicked \the extra point to
increase the Bulldogs lead to
13-3.
In the closing minutes of the
third quarter, Providence's
Garside, put the visitors within
striking distance of the hosts

For the proposed budget year
2006, the Solid Waste Special
Assessment rates for single
family will be increased from
$53.93 to $80.93. The Solid
Waste budget cannot be main-
tained at the current rate without
an increase. In the past, the
dumping of household garbage
was based on a fee collection
unless all materials were recy-
cled. Some county residents
have refused to pay this fee and
don't recycle. Beginning Octo-
ber 1, 2005, no fees will be
charged for the dumping of
bagged household garbage. Re-
cycling will still be encouraged
to meet state goals, but no fees
will be charged for bagged
household garbage.


The special assessment for
Solid Waste went into effect in
1989. The system of collection
was changed in 1994, and in
1996, the rates for single family
residence were raised to $53.93.
Since that date no further ad-
justment has been necessary
until now. The purpose for this
assessment was to provide fa-
cilities to allow county residents
and haulers a central location
from which to transfer garbage
to a landfill outside of Gilchrist
County, to close and monitor
the old dump site, develop fu-
ture facilities and the means to
properly and safely dispose of
solid waste.
This assessment has allowed
the residents of Gilchrist County


an opportunity and a facility to
dispose of household garbage,
construction debris and yard
trash, but generates only a por-
tion of the operating fund for
solid waste. Additional operat-
ing fees come from grants pro-
vided by the State of Florida
and fees paid for dumping.
During the past two budget
years, revenues have not been
keeping pace with expenses for
operations. This is due to in-
creased operating expense, fuel
costs, and new requirements by
the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation to permit the
facility. To comply with new
permitting requirements, Gil-
christ County has had to install


new systems to deal with the
wash down water and sludge
accumulated on the tipping
floor. This has resulted in a
$100,000 per year shortfall.
We are currently experiencing
rapid growth and it is becoming
more difficult to maintain the
current level of services. Since
1996, we have opened two ad-
ditional, manned drop-off sites
operating five days a week.
This was a necessity because the
amount of garbage collected
could no longer be handled by a
two-day-a-week, portable site.
The growth we are currently ex-
periencing makes it very diffi-

Gilchrist 4-H Students Are Honored In

Achievement Banquet


By Anna Wild
On Saturday, August. 20th,
2005 the Gilchrist County 4-H
held their annual Achievement
Banquet at the Trenton Ele-
mentary School's Cafeteria.
The evening began with a won-
derful meal which included
fried chicken, ham and a host of
dishes brought by guests. No
one should have walked away
hungry! The crowd of over 150
people were entertained by Jer-
emy Evans of Marion County.
Two years ago Jeremy won first
place at Florida's 4-H Congress
Share-the-Fun, and is the cur-
rent National Youth Sto-
reytelling Olympics Champion.
Jeremy Evans is a name we will
probably hear more of in a few
years. He has a real talent and
the crowd at the banquet were
very impressed with his story
telling style.
After everyone was properly
filled and entertained, the lead-
ers were introduced and thanked
for their volunteer services.
Without these volunteer leaders
and helpers, the 4-H programs
would never be able to succeed.
THANK YOU to all who vol-
unteer and help children! Each
year the 4-H Council honors a
person or business that has pro-
vided support to the Gilchrist
County 4-H program. This year
they recognized Dr. Ben Mather
who is a retired Associate Pro-
fessor in the Animal Science
Department of the University of
Florida. He has been an invalu-
able asset in providing educa-
tional support, supplies, and
funds for our 4-H poultry sci-
ence club and school projects.
Because of his support, eight
youth from Gilchrist County
4-H have been given the op-
portunity to expand their hori-
zons on the national level of
poultry judging. Four of these
youth were national champions
a few years back. Dr. Mather
has gone out of his way many
times to assist our youth, and
because of that the Gilchrist
County 4-H wanted to present
him with their Community
Service Award. Lyn Ellison ac-
cepted the award on his behalf
since Dr. Mather was out of
state Saturday evening.
Then the evening was filled
with children receiving pins and
various awards they had earned
through the year. Elaine Faison
was proud to announce they had
65 five-to-seven year old mem-
bers this year. Awards were
presented for the scrapbook
contest; first place was Osceola,
second place was Blue Springs,
and third place was Spring

Trenton J.V. Defeats
Dixie County In First
Half Of Classic
The Trenton JV Tigers took
their first game emotions out on
the JV Bears of Dixie County
Friday night. The junior varsity
teams took the field in the first
half of play in the Kick-off
Classic in Trenton.
The young Tigers' defense
made things happen as they
forced a Bears turnover and
picked up the loose ball and


dashed into the end zone. This
touchdown was the only points
scored in the first half giving the
Tigers a 6-0 victory.

In the second half, Trenton's
varsity team played two quarters
against the Dixie County Bears
varsity squad.
The Tigers' Chase Beckham
was in the right place at the
right time as he recovered a
Tiger fumble and got down
inside the Bears 20'yard line.
Trenton's Guy Brown put the


Tigers in the lead when he
scampered 5 yards into the end
zone on a quarterback keeper.
The extra-point kick following
the touchdown was good as the
Tigers took a 7-0 lead.

Dixie County was quick' to
get back into the game as they
scored their first touchdown on
a 30-yard pass. The extra point
kick was good as the Bears tied
the score at 7-7 in the closing

A Morning With
Paula Deen
By Cindy Jo Ayers
John let me have his column
space this week so I could share
my account of a special day I
spent with our daughter, Carrie
at the Paula Deen Cooking
School in Savannah. For as long
as I can remember I have been
an avid cook and loved cooking
shows on TV and collecting
cook books. I plan to begin
publishing a cooking column
each week in the Journal and
from time to time I may write of
someplace I've traveled or a
special restaurant I've eaten at.
I'm one of those souls who
"Lives to eat, not eats to live."
My daughter Carrie and I
both have June birthdays. About
a week before my birthday
Carrie and I were watching my
favorite all time TV show,
"Paula's Home Cooking" when
she mentioned that she couldn't
wait to give me my birthday
gift. I tried for several minutes
to twist the gift out of her. But
she just kept telling me that her
dad and brother would kill her if
she told me. As we sat enjoying
the cooking show a light bulb
finally went off in my head and
I thought surely she' wasn't
planning give me the same gift
that I had planned to buy for


prohibited due to complaints
from some residents in these
ters counties.
)f Two clubs are being formed
to organize airboaters .and
sportsmen alike so that our
voices can be heard at commis-,
sion meetings and state gov-
ernment assemblies. One club
ing and -is in the Suwannee County area
ited in and the other club is in the
as the. Marion and Alachua County
aware, area.
ite air- As airboaters anid sportsmen
ponds of Gilchrist, Levy, and Dixie
counties counties, we are between these
or even two areas and need to support
them in any way we can in an
effort to preserve our rights as
tax paying citizens to be al-
lowed to operate our airboats
and ATV's on county and state
owned \\ aterix a s and land.
After all, these public acces-,
sible properties are being pur-
Schased and maintained-'with-our
Stax dollars.
Although I live in Gilchrist
SCounty, my family and friends
venture to other places in the
state such as Orange Lake in
Alachua County to ride airboats
S and enjoy time spent in the great
outdoors. I am encouraging all
S airboaters and sportsmen to join
forces to support our interests
and voice our opinions rather
than stand idly by to see restric-
tions enforced that will nega-
tively impact our lifestyle.
The United Sportsmen and
Airboaters Alliance will be
meeting on September 6, 2005
at 7:00 PM at GTO Airboats lo-
cated on Highvay 326, south of
Ocala. For information about

her.
Earlier in the week she had
called home and asked if I had
something scheduled for August
18th and I told her no. She said,
"Good, now don't plan anything
for that day, Mom; don't ask me
why, just don't make any plans
because we are having a girl's
day." I sat thinking about.this
earlier conversation where she
reserved August 18, and became
more and more convinced that
maybe I should ask again just in
case she and I were planning to
buy the same thing for each
other's birthday. Well, to make
a long story short, lo and behold
that girl and I had the exact gift
in mind. She had purchased
tickets to the Paula Dean
Cooking School just the day be-
fore our Saturday conversation.
There are times when we are so
much alike it's plumb scary, this
was one of those times.
We arrived bright and- early in
Savannah to attend the cooking
school. As we entered the class-
room which is located in the
basement of Paula's restaurant,
The Lady and Sons, the class
was just beginning. Neither of
us, being diehard fans of Paula
Deen, could hardly believe it
was really her up there teaching
away. Her husband Michael


An Open Letter To
The City Of Trenton
On behalf of myself and the
Gilchrist County School Board.
I want:to express our apprecia-
tion for the support of Chief
William "Billy" Smith and the
Trenton Police Department
during the opening days of
school.
Trenton Police Department
provided traffic control on
Highway 26 at Trenton Ele-
mentary and we believe this
helped the large number of par-
,ents that drive their children
during the first several days to
have a smoother and safer tran-
sition to a new school year.
Again, we appreciate the sup-
port of the city in helping to ad-
dress our traffic needs.

James E. Vickers
Superintendent


Grover, who is a fifth genera-
tion Savannah native and a
docking pilot on the Savannah
River, was assisting with the
cooking class. I've got to tell
you she was wonderfully real
and pretty much like the lady
next door. All the fame and
prestige hasn't gone to her head
at all. She was laughing and
cutting up like one of the regu-
lar girls. Michael said, "I think
the secret to Paula's success is
that she is real and one of us."
One of us surely described her
to a tee. She has a great down
home southern, your good
friend next door kind of a per-
sonality.
We learned several interesting
facts about Paula's TV show,
for one the show has been
filmed all this time in New
York. She told us that she
spends a week or two weeks up
there at a time. She films about
two shows per day. Paula told
us her' producer Gordon Elliott
redid the kitchen in the New
York home to make it look like
a southern woman's kitchen. He
also put in the beautiful garden,
that from time to time is fea-
tured in the series, just for
Paula. She is a gardener and,
they in fact have a vegetable
garden at their home in Savan-
nah.
This .coming,! season her-
shows willbe filmed in Savain-
nah on Wilmington Island in the
new home she and her husband
recently built. She said when we
see the Thanksgiving special in
a couple months it was filmed in
her new kitchen at her home.
She told the class of about 30
that she will be pleased to stay
at home more. She went on to
say, "I like those people up
there in New York just fine, but
it's just not home and it ain't the
south."

sake his way, and the unrighteous man his
thoughts; let him return to the LORD, that he
may have mercy on him, and to our God, for he
will abundantly pardon. For my thoughts are
not your thoughts, neither are your ways my
ways, says the LORD. For as the heavens are
higher than the earth, so are my ways higher
than your ways and my thoughts than your
thoughts." (Isaiah 55:6-9)
The greatest sin man commits is exalting him-
self above God. At the root of every sin is the re-
bellious heart that rejects the commandments of
God and seeks to establish its own law by the na-
ture of man. Eve took of the fruit in the Garden of
Eden after the devil convinced her to put her
thoughts above the thoughts of God (Genesis
3:6). The thoughts of man in Noah's day "was
only evil continually" (Genesis 6:5). The Jews
continually rejected the blessings of God as they
put their thoughts above the thoughts of their Sav-
ior (Exodus 17:3; Numbers 11:5,6; Deuteronomy
1:43; Ezekiel 20:32).
The 'Bible is given to man to show him the con-
sequences of. following his own law. How can
man (the creation) believe that he can exalt him-
self above the One who created him?'Paul wrote
about the problem of man exalting himself above
God in Romans 9:20 "Nay but, 0 man, who art
thou that replies against God? Shall the thing
formed say to him that formed it, Why hast thou
made me thus?" Jehovah God made the world
and all that is in it. Man is nothing more than a
small speck of dust in respect to the grand scheme
of creation yet, he finds it within himself to
think of himself as greater than his Creator. The
thoughts of God and the thoughts of man are so
vastly apart from one another. The ways of man
are no comparison to the ways of God. Every-
thing that man creates fails; nothing that God es-
tablishes fails.


Paula and Michael prepared
three dishes for us in the sea-
food class. They cooked The
Best Crab Casserole, Shrimp
and Scallop Fraiche and Shrimp
Gumbo Casserole. After a dish
was completed we all just took a
spoon and dug right in. Paula of
course dug right in with us. A
couple of tips she gave'us was
that she uses homemade mayo
or Kraft Mayonnaise. Another
thing I found interesting is that
she said she and Michael were
not big drinkers, unless you
count the sweet iced tea she
kept sipping on during the class.
She uses only Luzianne Tea at
home or in the restaurants. She
serves tea with a sprig of mint
and lemon.
After the class ended about
12:30 we all sat down together
in the basement classroom and
had a wonderful dinner (lunch)
of good old country cooking. A
lady at our table from Seattle,
Washington tasted her first col-
lard greens, I'm pretty sure the
collard supply isn't in danger
from those Seattle folks.
If you've never eaten at the
Lady and Sons Restaurant in
Savannah you should give it a
try. The Lady and Sons is lo-
cated on Congress Street. Paula
and her brother Bubba Hiers re-
cently opened another restau-
rant, this "one ?s called Uncle
Bubba's Oyster Iouse. Uncle
Bubba's is located at 104 Bryan
Woods Road. Carrie and I fin-
ished our day of cooking' in Sa-
vannah by eating supper at Un-
cle Bubba's. Let me tell you the
food there was mighty fine.
Not only is Savannah a won-
derful city to visit because of
the great architecture and his-
tory, it has wonderful restau-
rants. Those folks in Savannah
sure can cook.

We,want to put God on our level and make Him
rule with our thoughts. Our idolatry is to make
God like one of us. Rebellion against God hap-
pens when man puts God on the level of man's
will. The Bible is no longer the word of God for
man but man's will to do as he pleases in accor-
dance with what he finds in his own thoughts. The
greater tragedy is that man uses God's word to es-
tablish his own doctrines and suggest these are the
commandments of God (Matthew 15:9). The Jews
of Jesus' day were more concerned about teaching
the thoughts of men rather than the thoughts of
God. "Wherefore the Lord said, Forasmuch as
this people draw near me with their mouth, and
with their lips do honor me, but have removed
their heart far from me, and their fear toward me
is taught by the precept of men "(Isaiah 29:13).
Why do we have so many religious bodies in
the world today? Why is immorality an accepted
norm of life in our society? What drives men to
accept homosexuality, divorce, lying, cursing, im-
modest dress and a myriad of other things that
God clearly condemns? "But he said to them,
'You are those who justify yourselves before
men, but God knows your hearts; for what is ex-
alted among men is an abomination in the sight
of God"' (Luke 16;15). The root of the problem
with each one of us is when we decide that our
thoughts are greater than the thoughts of God, we
sin. "These things you have done and I have
been silent; you thought that I was one like your-
self But now I rebuke you, and lay the charge
before you" (Psalm 50:21)
Everything that man exalts in rebellion against
God is an abomination to God. Just because man
believes it to be true does not mean that God does.
What will judge us in the last day man's word or
God's word? "He who rejects me and does not
receive my sayings has a judge; the word that I
have spoken will be his judge on the last day"
(John 12:48).

Alligator Hunt
Permits Available
Since 1988, the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has offered
thrilling, hands-on, face-to-face
alligator hunting opportunities
that are unlike any other hunting
experience imaginable.
If this type of hunting adven-
ture sounds exciting to you, the
FWC still has nearly 1,300 alli-
gator harvest permits remaining
for the upcoming season, avail-
able on a first-come, first-served
basis through September 20.
Permit holders are authorized
to take two alligators from des-
ignated areas during specific
harvest periods that run Sep-
tember 1 through October 8.
Alligator harvest areas are listed
at MyFWC.com/alligator under
"Alligator Harvest Permit
Availability."
Applicants have the option of
applying at any county tax col-
lector's office, license agent
(retail outlet that sells hunting
and fishing licenses), online at
MyFWC.com/license or by
calling toll-free 1-888-HUNT-
FLORIDA (486-8356) from
anywhere in the United States or
Canada.
To secure a permit, applicants
must submit payment for an al-
ligator trapping license and two
alligator-hide validation tags, or
provide proof of a valid alligator
trapping license (must be valid
through October 8), plus pay the
'fee for two hide %alidation tags.
No other hunting licenses are.
Required.
SThe cost for a resident alli-
gator trapping license and hide
validation tags is $272, and non-
residents pay $1,022. For each
alligator taken, the hunter must
complete and send in an alliga-
tor harvest report form to the
FWC. Data gathered from these
forms enable FWC biologists to
monitor population trends and
impacts on the annual harvest.
A resident or nonresident al-
ligator trapping agent license is
also available to consumers for
$52. This license allows the
holder to assist a trapper in tak-
ing alligators. but only in the
presence of the permitted trap-
per. All persons seeking a har-
'est permit must be at least 18
Sears old bN September ,1, and
I onl one hardest permit per per-
son % ill be issued.

Deer Dog Training
Season Nears-
Register Your Dogs
Now
Hunters who use dogs to hunt
deer on private lands in Florida
must now register their deer-
dogs for the 2005-06 hunting
season.
This new statewide, no-cost
registration program is not only
mandatory during any open
deer-hunting season when tak-
ing deer with dogs is permitted,
but also during the upcoming
deer-dog training season.
The deer-dog training season
opens October 1 and runs
through October 20 in the cen-
tral and south hunting zones. In
the Northwest Hunting Zone,
the training season runs October
29 November 17.
Registration may be issued to
hunting clubs or landowners for
anyone who wants to hunt deer
with dogs on a particular tract of
land. A unique registration
number will be issued from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC),
and that number must be affixed
or attached to the collars of dogs
used to hunt deer on registered
properties.
To comply with this new rule,
a representative from each
hunting club must complete the
appropriate application which h is'
available from regional FWC
offices and at MyFWC.com/
hunting. Proof of landowner
permission or a copy of the
w written lease agreement must be
provided along with a general
map of the property\ showing
boundary lines and a legal de-
scription.
Hunters must possess copies
Sof their registration whilee the .
are hunting, and they must keep
their dogs on registered proper-
ties, as required by the Hunter
Responsibility Rule.
"This new state ide registra-
tion program is a direct result of
last sear's successful pilot pro-
gram in northwest Florida.
where our commissioners tried
to balance the rights of property
owners while preserving the
long-standing tradition of deer-
dog hunting in Florida." said
Nick Wiley, director of the Di-
uision of Hunting and Game
Management. '
"Seventi individual proper-.L1
ties, representing 55 deer-dog
hunt clubs, participated. Those
properties ranged from 40 to
31,000 acres and were situated
in 14 of the 16 counties within
the FWC's North\west Region,"
\Vile) said.
With the pilot program in
place. complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the aver-
age of the pre% ious four hunting
seasons. More importantly.
Only fite complaints were asso--
Sciated vith registered deer-dog
hunting clubs.
In comparison, a review of
last season's complaint data for
the North Central and Northeast
regions. where registration w'as
:not required, showed an in-
crease in deer-dog hunting
complaints from the average of
the previous four hunting sea-
sons.

Gallagher Announces
Unclaimed Property
Auction Results
Florida's Chief Financial Of-
ficer Tom Gallagher has an-
nounced that nearly 320 bidders
from ten states registered for the
Department of Financial Serv-
ices' unclaimed property auc-
tion in Fort Lauderdale recently
and paid more than $570,000 on
a variety of treasures. They left.
* with some great 'finds, and
Florida's school children will
benefit from the monev raised.
The department's Bureau of
Unclaimed Property has trans-
ferred more than $1.25 billion to
the Florida Education Trust
Fund since its inception in 1961,
said Gallagher, who also noted
that this has been another re-
cord-setting year in the amount


of unclaimed cash and property
reported to the state and the
value of property returned to
owners. Each of the past two
years, the bureau has received
more than $200 million in un-
claimed property and returned
almost half of it to the owners.
The items that go to auction
have been unclaimed for at least
three years after being found in
abandoned safe deposit boxes.
Claiming money or property
turned over to the state is free,.
and at any time owners or their
heirs can claim the money the
items earn at auction. The de-
partment also has a. website,
www.Fltreasurehunt.org.


From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
Two new volunteers have de-
cided to assist with the duties at
the library. Another has also
been helping when a fulltime
volunteer is on vacation. We are
very pleased. This week some-
thing came in the mail con-
gratulating us on a ten year an-
niversary coming up in 2006.
The residents of Bell and Gil-
christ County can be very proud
of establishing and maintaining
an all volunteer library for all
these years.
This week I have read "Vegas
Rich" by Fern Michaels. This is
the story 'of how the heroine,
Sallie Coleman became the
richest woman in Nevada. She
had left Texas as an young un-
educated young lady from dirt
poor beginnings to owning a
mansion on her own mountain.
The novel covers her family's
history over half a century.
For the beginning readers I
will recommend "Dumbo, the
Flying Elephant" which is a
Disney book. How do you
suppose he learned to fly?
A fascinating book, "Cam
Jansen and the Mystery of the
Stolen Corn Popper" relates
how a student with a photo-
graphic memory could solve the
.mystery of the shoplifter who
was taking other shoppers' bags
and getting away with it.
We are working on getting
another computer on-line for
our patrons. Just be patient with
us.
Next week I will be reading
James Patterson.'s,"'h of 'Jul\"
that has been on the best seller
list for a few weeks. \Wach for
my.review 'and come to check
out this and other books..

Florida Wildlife
Federation Votes To
Support Research
And Fishing At
Dry Tortugas
The Florida Wildlife Federa-
tion, a non-profit organization
comprised of hunters, fishers
and other conservationists,
voted at its recent annual meet-
ing in Stuart to support the es-
tablishment of a Research Natu-
ral Area in the Dry Tortugas
National Park. The Dry Tortu-
gas, which is a jewel in the
crown of the Florida Keys and
serves as the breeding grounds
for many fish species, including
grouper, is also the home of
fragile coral reefs that are under


increasing threat. The Research
Natural Area (RNA) shall afford
scientists the ability to research
a relatively pristine ecological
system while still allowing rec-
reational fishing immediately
adjacent to the fort and in the
majority of the remaining wa-
ters in the park. Additionally,
diving and boating shall con-
tinue throughout the entire park.
For more information please
contact Preston Robertson,
Florida Wildlife Federation at

Half. the interest of a garden is
the constant exercise of the
imagination.

Tiger Pride Marching Band
Has New Director


Jamie Petersheim new band director at Trenton High.


Tiger Pride
Marching Band News
Excitement is in the air! The
Trenton Middle/High School
Band is energized as we begin a
new era of award-winning band
performance and high achieve-
ments in marching precision.
On Monday, August 15th, the
Band Booster parents had their
first meeting to make plans for
another great school year. Mi-
chelle Carter, president of the
Band Boosters, welcomed the
large crowd of parents to the
meeting with enthusiasm and.
appreciation that the Trenton
Band parents are supportive of
the great program we have.
THANK YOU PARENTS FOR
A GREAT TURNOUT!
There has-been much antici-
pation at the coming of our new
band director, Jamie Petersheim.


Miss Petersheim was not able to
be at the meeting as she would
not arrive in the area until
August 18th. Lynette Langford,
principal of Trenton Mid-
dle/High School, addressed the
meeting and talked about the
new band director. Miss Peter-
sheim comes to Trenton from.
Pennsylvania where she had
been part of a band program at a
large high school that placed
first in State competition and.
16th in the nation. She has ex-
tensive teaching experience in
private lessons with myriad in-
struments. Miss Petersheim is
excited about \working with the
Trenton Band: She as able to
attend the Trenton/Dixie Classic
football game Friday night and,
was very impressed with the
band as it performed throughout
the game. We would also like to
thank the Gilchrist County

WELCOME TO THS JAMIE
PETERSHEIM!
This will be another great
year for the Tiger Pride March-
ing Band and band program.
There was a full agenda to dis-
cuss setting many goals and
planning many exciting things
to do with the band. We encour-
age all band parents to be in-
volved in your child's band
program. The band program is
one of the richest experiences a
student will have in school and
will help in many ways to pre-
pare them for college and life.
,BAND PARENTS ARE TIGER
PRIDE PARENTS.
The officers for the Band
Boosters are as follows: Mi-
chelle Carter, President; Christie
McElroy, Vice-President; Lisa
Johnson, Treasurer; Jackie
Robinson, Secretary; Angel'
Williams, Fund-Raiser Chair-
person; Heather and Les Faison,
Concession Chairpersons; Edie
Giambrone, Chaperone Chair-
person. Three nominations were
presented for voting: Kent
Heaton was elected to be the
Public Relations Chairperson;
Glen Thigpen was elected to be
the Alumni Chairperson; and
Michelle Carter was elected to
be the Transportation Chairper-
son. MICHELLE SAYS CALL
AND GIVE YOUR SUPPORT
TO THE BAND! (352) 463-
2950.
Band parents are reminded to
check with their child for mon-
ies that are needed to, help in the
band program. The anticipated
charges for the year are as fol-
lows: Uniform cleaning ($30);
Shoes ($20); Gloves ($5); T-
shirts ($8); Instrument rental -
optional ($35). Parents are
asked to ask for your child's
balance. Would you like to help
support a child? We encourage
individuals. :or businesses to
sponsor a child! Remember par-
ents that help with the conces-
sion stand at the football game
will earn' your child a $10.00

One of the goals for this year
is to raise $30,000 for new uni-
forms. Lisa Johnson reported
that the band took $10,000 from
the band account and put it in a
CD at Tri-County Bank for 23
months drawing 4.258% inter-
est. This will help to fund many
of the goals in the coming years.
Angel Williams presented nu-
merous fund-raising programs
that will help the band reach its
goals. One of the programs that
we are excited about is the
Sponsor Program. A number of
individuals and businesses have
jumped on our band wagon (bad
pun) and agreed to help sponsor
our goal of new uniforms. They
include Tri-County Bank, Dr.
John Frazier, Gilchrist Title,
Troke Realty and Hugh's Ma-
sonry. We are asking other
businesses and individuals to
help, Trenton Tiger Pride
Marching Band in their goal of
new uniforms this year. YOU
CAN HELP US LOOK SHARP
IN OUR NEW UNIFORMS.
We want to remind everyone
of the "Meet and Greet" Thurs-
day night, August 25, at the

Teacher Cadet
Gilchrist County has been
pioneering a brand new program
in hopes of guaranteeing future.
teaching jobs to our high school
seniors. With a shortage of
40,000 teachers expected in the
near future in Florida, this pro-
gram entitled ACE "Ad-
vancing Careers in Education"
- will recruit teachers by pro-
viding early teacher training to
select twelfth grade students
through education prep courses.
The ACE program will also
provide financial support to
these students through schplar-
ship opportunities. Our plan is
to "Grow Our Own" and to
guarantee these students, who
are called "Teacher Cadets," a
job in Gilchrist County upon
finishing college and becoming
a certified teacher.
The "Teacher Cadet" model
is a .simple model that takes a
lot of commitment from all of
our school faculty and staff.
Trenton High School started its
Teacher Cadet program this fall.
and Bell High School is set to
launch the Cadet program in
January. In this rigorous pro-
gram, Cadets 'earn high school
credit and can earn six college
credits through Dual Earallment
with LCCC--three credits in the
Foundations of Education, and
three in Educational Technol-
ogy. Cadets will spend nine
weeks in a college-level practi-
cum experience with mentoring
teachers from our. 'schools,
where they will get regular
doses of theory in the class-
room, and teaching practice in.
elementary and middle school
grades. If we can mentor quality.
teachers on the front end, in-
stead of waiting for them to
come out of the college of edu-
cation, then we are ahead of the
game.
The teacher cadets and their
parents are invited to meet our
college partners from Lake City
Community College, Mr. Char-
lie Carro ll Vice President of In-
struction and Student Services;

Tomorrow night is our 'Dog Patch Party' at the post at 6:30 PM.
The theme is Al Capps characters from 'Dog Patch'. There will be
Food, Fun; Games and Prizes. Tickets are still available at the door.
Call Carl or Geneva Comwell for more information (352) 463-1473.
Carl and Geneva have worked very hard to make this a success.
Please support the post. These functions- are OPEN TO THE
PUBLIC. Reward Carl and Geneva for their hard work by attending.
'Veteran's Awareness Day' will be on Saturday, September 3rd at
the post home, 10 AM till 2 PM. We have county service officers
from Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie on hand and reps from the American
Legion, VFW and DAV to answer any and all your questions on
veterans benefits. We will be serving PIZZA, iced tea and coffee. At
least come by and have a cup with us and tell us your hero's story.
You don't have to be a member of any veteran's organization to
attend, just be a VETERAN. That's enough in itself.
MEMBERSHIP is the key to success. Strength in numbers is the
game played in Washington. We need your membership. If you're
already a member, please renew. If you're NOT a member, but are an
eligible veteran, please join and give us a chance to enhance your
knowledge by keeping you abreast of veteran entitlements. Call Dean
Williams (386)454-8143. We are in need of younger eligible
members. Most of us are getting older and the things we used to do
every day take all day to do. We need people to help at the hall. Get
involved in one of the numerous programs the legion has to offer to
vets and especially kids. So many scholarships go unused because we
don't have enough active members to help work the programs. The
legion has set up 'The American Legacy Scholarship Fund' to help
children of the heroes that gave the supreme sacrifice for their
country, to get a college education. I am just touching on a few of the
rewards we could all receive by getting involved with the many
.programs of the legion, auxiliary and SAL. Please consider a few
hours of your time to help so many.
As long as the dedicated Americar military fight for us, we will be
here for them. They are the nation's newest veterans. We salute them

hot outside, but we went out and
learned our drills, marked our

plained'...well, maybe for a
minute or two...! But we have
set our goal for the year, and we
are all working our hardest to
achieve it! The Group Marching
winners were Curt Crawford,
Samantha Pittman, Allysa

Bell Middle/High
School PTA News
The Bell Middle/High PTA
held its first meeting of the
2005-06 school year. New faces
and enthusiasm bring great op-
portunity to our organization.
The vision of the PTA is to
improve the education and
communication between par-.
ents, teachers, and administra-
tion.
This year the PTA plans to
provide guest speakers for such
important topics as dual enroll-
ment, college testing and schol-
arship information. We would
like to involve school board
members to inform parents on
the "No Child Left Behind"
program with specific state and
federal regulations.
Last year the PTA provided
funds to the High-Q Club to
purchase equipment, three sen-
ior scholarships of $1,000 each
and paid the registration fee to
allow four Health Academy stu-
dents to 'attend the HOSA Con-
vention in Nashville.
We have great plans for this
school year. Come and get in-
volved in YOUR school.
The next meeting will be held
on Monday, September 19,
2005 at 7:00 p.m. in the school
library. See you there!

GREETINGS
"Molly," my precious cat,
feels it's about time she had
some recognition so here she is
once again sitting on my foot
stool waiting for me to set down
so she can lie on my lap, which
she does a lot. She is so at-
tached to me and getting so she
often follows me around from
room to room and gets so close
to my feet I end up kicking her
sometimes... still, she never
learns...

None will improve your lot if
you yourself do not...

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Floyd
Beach of Trenton on August
S26th; to Loren Wolfe (40) of
Gilchrist county on August 27th
and to Teri (Myers) Thompkins
(35) of Rolling Oaks on August
30th... "May all of you have a
nice day celebrating!"

Enthusiasm is the best
protection in any situation.
Wholeheartedness is conta-
gious. Give yourself, if you
wish to get others...

ANNIVERSARIES
Happy 21st Anniversary to Su-
san and Philip Russel of
Gainesyille on. August 25th; to
Maureen and Joe Dixon of
Waccasassa Lake who will
celebrate their 52nd on August
26th... May all of you have a
lovely day celebrating!"
FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason we use the phrase
"how do you do" as a greeting
is because the last "do" means
"fare" and we're really asking,
"How are things going?"

RIB TICKLERS
Heard aboard a cross-town
bus: "When you exit, please be
sure to lower your head and
watch your step. If yotu miss
your step and hit your head,
please lower your voice and
watch, your language. Thank
you."
: After he enlisted in the Navy,
a friend of mine found himself
going through basic training and
learning about firearms. ,
He was aided by a sticker on
his rifle that ,hadan,,arrw
pointing tow\ ard the barrel. "The
sicker read: "Point This End At
Enemy."

He had been trying to get his
waiter's attention for ages.
Finally, the angry customer
grew tired of waiting for the
%wailer to come over. He stood
up and shouted out, "I need
more tea!"
Annoyed, the waiter came to


his table.
"You don't have to yell I'm
not deaf," he scolded.
"Sorry," the man said. "That
was rude of me."
"It's okay," the waiter said.
"Now what do you want in your
coffee?"

The Little Fisherman
Once a little fisherman
Went out to catch some fish.
He thought he soon would
have
Enough to make a handsome
dish.
He sat alone on the riverbank
Waiting for a bite.
He sat so patiently
From morning until night,
He sometimes thought of bat
and ball
And other cheerful play,
But still the little fisherman
Sat on all through the day.
He felt a little hungry,
So he ate some bread and
cheese.
But he was quite afraid to
S move
And did not dare to sneeze.
For he had been told that fish
were quick
Of hearing and of sight.
And so he sat quite still
Until the whinnying light,
And not a fish had he caught,
And now it was very late.
And shall I tell you why it
was?
He quite forgot the bait!

It's amazing that the amount
of news that happens in the
world each day is enough to
exactly fit in the newspaper...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
Vegetable shortening (such as
Crisco) is an economical and
very effective makeup remover.
Massage it into skin and wipe
off with tissue.

An empty heart is a far
greater misfortune than an
empty purse...

THE COOK'S CORNER
Danish Applesauce Cake
1 pkg. Zwieback (finely
rolled)
2 tbsp. sugar
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 cup softened butter
2, cans applesauce
.,ThoroughlN blend all ingredi-
gnt, except applesauce. Press
some of mixture firmly on bo
tom, of glass baking dish. Top
with'applesauce, alternate in
rows until all ingredients are
,used. Refrigerate over 'ight
until firm. Serve each serving
with a generous topping of
whipped cream.

Nothing but the heart can
change the heart...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
SYou Are Not Alone
When you walk the road to Cal-
vary,
And your heart is sorrow sore,
You walk no longer, rougher
road:
Thai ;a Man once walked be-
fore.

When you climb the hill tp Gol-
gotha,
And your life seems crucified,
You climb no steeper, tragic hill
Than the one where God once
died!


When your soul is stretched on
a beam of pain,
And your spirit cries for light,
You lift no voice more anguish
torn
Than a Man in depths of night!

But when you come to dark de-
spair,
And feel none cares or under-
stands,
Lift up your heart! You're not
alone!
Your life is in the Father's
Hands!

For this is faith, and this is
hope,
And this the Christian's grace:
That, through the .low'ring
clouds, still shines
God's love in His dear Son's
face!
By E. Leslie Wood

I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: Be-
cause of the Lord's great love
we are not consumed, for his
compassion never
fail...Lamentations 3:22 NIV

is going to teach us how to

pins, crochet thread, and a piece
of styrofoam. They are delight-
ful and should be fun to make.
Elaine and Cathy passed out a
list of items needed to fill shoe-
boxes for men and women
serving our country. This will
be a great Christmas project for
us to be involved with.
Elaine also passed out a plas-
tic bag with instructions and
templates for making blocks for
our next club quilt. The pattern
is known as "Snowball." We
need thirty-five blocks and they
shouldn't be all that hard to do,
even for someone like me.


She also gave us a few tips on
storing your quilts, such as tak-
ing them out and fluffing them
up a bit and refolding or rolling
them. I read recently that you
should keep them out of sun-
light, refold them differently
each time to avoid threads
breaking down from being
creased in the same place, and


never letting anyone handle
them without gloves. Seems
even the slightest oil from our
hands, over time, ruins the fab-
ric.
All too soon it was time to
part company. Our next regular
meeting will be on Wednesday,
September 7th and God willing,
we will all be well and able to
make it as it is such a blessing
to share this time together.
I'd like to share this poem
with you...
So let me work'on life's
patchwork quilt
Through the rainy days and

Trusting that when I have
finished my block
The Master may say,

IMikell Memorial Cemetery
OGCABIN QUILTRS Dedication Service Held In

m .. Statesboro, Georgia


This is "North Carolina Lily" pieced by the mother of Alice
Eakes many years ago. Alice is trying to get it ready to quilt
and she feels many of the triangles were cut on the bias that
surround the edge of the quilt.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
on Thursday, August 18th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Summer is slowly passing and
we know we start to get busy
come September. We have had
a great time in spite of the heat
and we forward to some cooler
weather.
Alice Mae Haire has finished
three "Dutch Girls" and "Boy
Baby" quilts. When the quilt
show comes in December, we
know a lot of crafts are sold and
then we take all year to replace
them but it keeps us all busy.
Jannie Bicknell will have her
fair quilt finished by next week
and she will probably get a blue
ribbon again. She makes quilts
that most of us wouldn't think
of trying.
Mike Brennan came up from
Camp Caruth and brought
squares to be made into a quilt.
He said they had a great sum-
mer and now it's time to start
with the school children who
come to camp to learn the many
things they teach them down
there.
Greg Stanley was out on
Tuesday with five boys to mow
and work. We will be having
them each Tuesday as long as
we need them, and that will be
right on..
Lunch was/.s.o:goodwmith


meatloaf, mashed potatoes and
gravy, chicken and biscuits, lots
of fresh fruit, not much dessert
but Marie's frozen pie. There
were fifteen members and two
guests.

The Mikell clan set off for
Statesboro, Georgia last Friday,
the 19" of August to witness the
dedication of the Mikell Memo-
rial Cemetery in Statesboro, on
a plot of land that was discov-
ered a few years back. The re-
mains of James Mikell, Sr. and
his descendents are buried there.
The cemetery is now a national
cemetery due to the fact that
James was an American Revo-
lution soldier and also had six
grandsons who fought in the
Civil War.
His dad was William Barnett
Mikell. Barnett (Michael)
Mikell, Ensign, brother of Ma-
jor John Mikell, R.S., gained his
rank by serving in the Cherokee
War under Col. George Gabriel
Powell, of South Carolina,
whose men were mainly from
Cheraw and Georgetown district
of Old Craven County, South
Carolina. The Cherokee Expe-
dition of 1759-1760. (Ref. S.C.
Soldiers and Patriots by Leon-
ardo Andrea, 4204 Devine St.,
Columbia, S.C., page 23 & 5
printed by the R.L. Bryan Co.,
Columbia, S.C.).
He married his cousin Jane
McCall and they had "many
children.". (Ref. Lucas-Mikell
Family, S.C. Hist. & Gen.
Magazine pp. 212-214.)
We have been unable to get a
list of the children of Barnett
and Jane Mikell but the follow-
ing are believed to be heirs:
1. Elizabeth Mikell who mar-
ried her cousin Edward Mikell.
2. James Mikell, Rev. Sol.
who married Mary Lee.
3 Alexander 'Mikell who
married Rebecca Hollingsworth.
4. Thomas Mikell who mar-
ried first Mary Rowe and sec-
ond Mary Woodcock.
5. William Mikell married
first Mary Anderson and second
Tabitha Hagin.
6. Seaborn Mikell.
7. George Mikell (Charlie),
married Martha Ren.
The above all settled in the
area of Mill Creek in Bulloch
County.
Barnett Mikell was in Effing-
ham County as early as 1788 as
he si.glned ithemSuperior. Court
minites'~n 11 M ch, 1788. "
In the 1790 Census of S.C.
we find Jane Mikell in Prince
Fredericks Parish, S.C. with one
male under 16 and two females
in the household. At this same
time, Barnett Mikell obtained a
grant of land in Effingham
County, Georgia (later made
into Bulloch).
By 1794 Barnett Mikell and
his wife Jane McCall had
moved to Screven County,
Georgia where he had a home
near Rock Landing Road about
six miles south of the Ogeechee

Screven County, Georgia plat
book A, page 72 "Barnett
Mikell granted 200 acres of land
on 4 May 1795. Witness Wm.

On 5 June 1801, George and
Thomas Mikell obtained 428
acres of land in Bulloch County.
They were listed as planters.
They sold to Wm. Wise on 3
September 1806. Witnesses
were Alexander Mikell and
William Mikell. Mary Mikell,
wife of Thomas Mikell, re-
nounced all title claims. Signed
the Superior Court minutes on
11 March 1788. Obtained a
grant of land.
Revolutionary honors were

motion to intervene had been
granted.
Crist filed the motion to
intervene on August 4th,
objecting that' the proposed
rate increases by Florida

are excessive and unjustified.
The proposed rate hikes would
affect some 70 percent of
Florida's electric consumers.
Before filing the motion with

was asked to intervene by'
AARP and the Florida Retail
Federation on behalf of their,
combined 2.7 million members
in Florida.

Gilchrist County
Summer Feeding
Program Has
Successful Summer
Welcome back to the students
of Gilchrist County, from your
local school lunchroom staff.
Hope your summer was relaxing
and fun" The GIIchrit County
Summer Feeding Program had
another great and successful
summer. It's a great opportunity
to provide nutritional lunches
during the summer weeks for
our kids at no cost to them. We
served over .16,000 lunches over
the seven week program.
A big thanks goes out to
Connie Hodge, Ila Hamilton,
Georgia Register, Stephanie
White and Kevin Blythe who
worked this summer to provide
this service. Also, to Connie
Miller and Faye Sheffield who
worked as substitutes. We
started making lunches at 7:00
a.m. so they could be delivered
to various sites throughout Gil-
christ County. We appreciate
and thank those involved in al-
lowing and providing sites to
serve these meals..
We hope you had an chance
to take advantage of this serv-
ice. The only requirement was,
that the one receiving the lunch
was 18 or younger and that the
lunch was consumed on the site
served. We enjoyed serving the
kids and looked forward to the
smiles on their faces when we
pulled up with their lunches. If
you would like more informa-
tion on the program or provid-
ing a site next year, please con-
tact our food service director,
Dana Tucker at the school board
office before school lets out
next summer.
Now, it's back to providing
great breakfast and lunches at
our schools. We look forward to
serving all of our kids this
school year in our lunchroom
where "It's All About The
Kids!" Come see us and enjoy a
wonderful breakfast and lunch.
Hope you all have a great year.
Sincerely,
FSFSA Gilchrist Chapter.

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 to 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 on Post Of-
fice Box 790, CR 341 South of SR
26, Chiefland, FL 32644 in Gil-
christ County.
The intent to issue and applica-
tion file are available for public in-
spection during normal business
hours, 8:00 a.m. to, 5:00 p.m., Mon-
day through Friday, except legal
holidays, at Northeast District Of-
fice, 7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite

ministrative hearing is filed under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,

action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.
The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition or request of en-
largement of time within fourteen
days of receipt of notice shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sec-
tions 160.569 and 120.57, Florida
Statutes. Any subsequent interven-
tion (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the
discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in com-
pliance with Rule 28-106.205,
Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based must contain
the following information:
(a) The name, address and tele-
phone number of each peti-
tioner; the name, address,
and telephone number of the
petitioner's representative,
if any; the Department per-
mit identification number
and the county in which the
subject matter or activity is
located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner re-
ceived notice of the De-
partment action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial in-
terests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of
the Department action;
(f) A concise statement. of the
ultimate facts alleged, as
well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner
to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to for-
mulate final agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be
different from the position taken by
it in this notice..Persons whose sub-
stantial interests will be affected by
any such final decision of the De-
partment have the right to petition.
to become a party to the proceed-
ing, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above. ,,
In addition to requesting ah ad-
ministrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by
filing with the Department a me-
diation agreement with all parties to
the proceeding (i.e., the applicant,
the Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hearing). The
agreement must contain all the in-
formation required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative
Code. The agreement must be re-
ceived by the clerk of the Office of
General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail, Station 35, Tallahassee, Flor-
ida 32399-3000, within ten days
after the deadline for filing a peti-
tion, as set forth above. Choosing
mediation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agree-
ment of all parties to mediate will
toll the time limitations imposed by
Sections 120.569' and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, for holding an ad-
ministrative hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless otherwise agreed
by the parties, the mediation must
be concluded within sixty days of
the execution of the agreement. If


mediation results in settlement of
the administrative dispute, the De-
partment may enter a final order in-
corporating the agreement of the
parties. Persons seeking to protect
their substantial interests that would
be affected by such a modified final
decision must file their petitions
within fourteen days of receipt of
this notice, or they shall be deemed
to have waived their right to a pro-
ceeding under Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Florida Statutes. If media-
tion terminates without settlement
of the dispute, the Department shall
notify all parties in writing that the
administrative hearing process un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, remain available
for disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the deadlines
that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes.

Staging Your Home
- Maybe one of the most important
factors to getting an acceptable
offer, is properly staging your
home.
- There is so much more to staging
your home than just making sure
your home is clean. When
prospective Buyers enter a home,
they look for space. Whether it's
counter space, storage space, or
just.space to put their feet up.
- A good start is to de clutter your
home; Put away extra kitchen
appliances, like toasters, blenders,
bread makers, etc. Find a place
for all of those magazines,
newspapers, and anything else that
you can live without. ,
- Also add some homely touches,
leave some soft soothing music on
the radio, or if your cable t.v. or
satellite provider offers music
stations, you can leave one of
those on. Baking cookies is a
good way to fill your home with
the scent of fresh baked goodies.
- Most Buyers like to walk in to a
well lit home. A great way to
achieve this is to flip on all of the
lights in your home. The home
will show better, and seem more

took the lead on a short
touchdown run. The extra point
following the kick gave the
visitors a 14-7 edge.

took a kickoff and returned it to
inside the Bears 45-yard line.

Attorney General
Crist: Prescription
Drug Settlements To
Deliver Widespread
Relief
Attorney General Charlie
Crist recently announced that
more than $2.5 million in
checks are now on their way to
Florida consumers and public
agencies from two prescription
drug settlements reached by his
office. More than 5,600 individ-
ual Floridians who overpaid for
the common heart medication
Caridzem CD should begin re-
ceiving their checks.
The checks mailed to con-
sumers come as part of the
Cardizem CD settlement,
reached in January 2003 to re-
solve antitrust claims against
Aventis Pharmaceuticals, Inc.,
Andrx Corporation and affili-
ated entities.
Florida consumers who pre-
viously submitted valid claims
will share $1.95 million in res-
titution to cover amounts they
overpaid for the medication.
The settlement represents the
third highest consumer recovery
ever among Florida pharmaceu-
tical antitrust cases in which
restitution has been made to
consumers. Based on the num-
ber of claims received from
residents, Florida will receive
more for consumer restitution
than any other state.
'Obviolusly, when Floridians
are able to get back money they
overpaid for necessary medical
care, it's a good day in the state
of Florida," said Crist. "These
settlements will help us keep
our citizens in good health
while easing undue financial
stress."
A separate settlement, in-
volving the anti-inflammatory
drug Relafen, was reached in
February between the Attorney
General's Office and Smith-
Kline Beecham Corporation and
SmithKline Beecham, Plc. The
settlement resolved allegations
that public entities overpaid for
medications because Smith-
Kline's conduct prevented a
low-priced generic equivalent of
Relafen from being available.
Florida taxpayers will recover
$597,000 to make up for over-
charges paid by the state's
Medicaid program and other
state and local public health en-
tities. Attorney General Crist
has also filed a claim for more
than $480,000 from a private
class action settlement to reim-
burse the state for purchases it
made on behalf of government
employees, Attorney General's
Offices in Florida, Maryland
and New York negotiated the
settlement on behalf of all 50
states, as well as the District of
Columbia and U.S. territories.
Since 2003, the Attorney
General's Antitrust Division has
produced close to $37 million in
recoveries in antitrust lawsuits.
