The City of Trenton has a
new city manager as of last
week. Jered Ottenwess is ex-
cited about his new position.
Since. his expertise is in the field
of planning he looks forward to
the growth that the City is ex-
pected to experience in the next
few years.
When asked how long he ex-
pected his tenure to be with the
City Mr. Ottenwess stated, "I
don't believe you can be an ef-
fective manager and stay less'
than four to five years." He
would also like to 'move to or
near Trenton. Currently he lives
in Gainesville but looks forward
to moving here where the pace
is slower.
He is looking forward to the
many aspects of his job. Cur-
rently the city staff is working
on the budget. Future funding is
one of his concerns. He would
like to make. sure the City has
the funds to provide services for
future growth. This growth will
become a reality in part because

county health department and
office space for constitutional
offices.

for additional revenues and
explained that the increase in
service were being driven by the
new residents moving into the
rural area.

Suwannee River Fair

Association To

Expand Livestock

Show Facility


The Gilchrist County Com-
missioner was addressed by
Darrell Smith representing the
Suwannee River Fair and Live-
stock Association in the Mon-
day, September 19th meeting.
Mr. Smith, a member of the
Board of Directors from Gil-
christ County explained to the
five-member board that the Su-
wannee River Fair Association
is requesting support from Gil-
christ County. The Suwannee
River Fair Association is re-
questing a Resolution and a do-
nation of $10,000 or an in-kind
contribution toward the con-
struction of a new multi-purpose
show arena.
Mr. Smith explained to the
Commission that the Suwannee
River, Fair is growing and the


Board of Directors will be
making an application to the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture, Commissioner Charles
Bronson for $250,000 local fair
legislative funding. If the fair
association receives the legisla-
tive appropriation, the funds
will be spent toward the con-
struction of a new multi-purpose
facility to be located on the fair
grounds at Fanning Springs.
This facility would be much like,
the multi-purpose arena that is
located on the Gilchrist FFA
Alumni Property between
Trenton and Bell.

Commissioner


Durden


explained that the School
Superintendent identified the
$750.00 Impact Fee going to the
School District would be used
to construct additional needed
classrooms. The Attorney was
also requested to add the School
District portion to the proposed
Impact Fee.
The board had a lengthy
discussion with Commissioners
Gentry and Langford requesting
a larger amount of the fee be
directed to transportation needs
in order to pave roads in the
county.
Commissioner Gentry
explained that if the county set
aside more of the Impact Fee in
the Transportation Fund the
Transportation Department
could pave from 3 to 5 miles of
present graded county roads
each year.

Langford, the Chairman of the

By John M. Ayers
During the Monday evening
meeting the Gilchrist County
Commission discussed the ex-
changing of deeds on property
that was approved by the
County Commission to be ex-
changed with, the School Dis-
trict involving 23.5 acres.
Gilchrist County Attorney
John McPherson reported that
the property committee, con-
sisting of Commissioner
Tommy Langford, chairman;
Sam Ferguson, Sheriff David
Turner, Superintendent Buddy
Vickers, and LCCC President
Dr. Hall, met and the committee
was unable to make a decision
for a recommendation to the
County Commission.
This committee.was estab-
lished to bring the representa-
tives from the School District,
LCCC, Sheriff's Office and

Gilchrist County together to
reach an agreeable solution. A
solution that was proposed
would allow the Sheiiff's Office
to use the firing range for up to
three or more years until the
college would need the firing
range. The problem involves
who would have control over
the firing range.
John McPherson explained
that when the county adminis-
trators began meeting to'discuss
the proposal of a college cam-
pus being located on the Walker
Curve property, no one involved
saw the firing range involved in
the land exchange to be a prob-
lem.
The attorney explained that
the committee has met three
times over the last three weeks
and the committee chairman is
seeking 30 more days in order
to come to a working solution
that would benefit all parties.
McPherson further explained
that it is his understanding that
the Resolution, dated February
17, 2003 identifying the ex-
change of the Walker Curve
property for the parcel behind
the Gilchrist County Jail where
the Road Department is cur-
rently located, did away with


the designation involving Fed-
eral Law Enforcement Drug
designation. He explained that
the Walker Curve property is no
longer designated as a parcel
purchased by Federal Law En-
forcement Drug revenues.
McPherson went on to ex-
plained that the tape the Sheriff
played in the September 8th
meeting was difficult to.under-
stand and did not plainly iden-
tify a conversation about the
Walker Curve property dis-
cussed by the Board of County
Commissioners.
Sheriff Turner was reported
to be objecting to thd proposals
that were being discussed in the
committee meeting.
Gilchrist County 4-H
Shooting Sports Instructor Les-
.lie Sapp addressed the board
asking them how did we get to
this point in negotiations and
determine that this was not a
workable solution. "A new
shooting range is very difficult
to permit now'.," Sapp explained.
"I think the Sheriff should retain
control and LCCC should work
with the Shenff. I also feel the
board needs to look at this issue
further before making a deci-
sion," Sapp added.
The board discussed with the
Sheriff the use of the different
types of ammunitions. Chief
Deputy and Training Supervisor
Harvey Montgomery told the
Commission that the Sheriff's
Office no longer shoots lead
ammunition at the range. He
explained that the lead ammu-
nition has to be collected from
the firing range to keep the ma-
terial from becoming an envi-
ronmental concern. "There are
other agencies that do use lead
at the range," Montgomery
added.
Doug Crawford, a resident
that lives near the firing range,
addressed the board during the
public concerns portion of the
meeting. "I asked the Sheriff if
he was aware of the firing range
being involved in the property
exchange between the County
Commission and the School


Board. The Sheriff replied
'no,"' Crawford explained.
The Gilchrist County resi-
dent and business owner told
the board that it was in the best
interest of Gilchrist County
residents if the Sheriff retains
control of the firing range prop-
erty. "We have a mechanism in
place of dealing with county of-
ficials every four years .if we
don't like the way they are do-
ing the job. If the control goes
to the community college, the
county then has no control in-
volving the property," Crawford
explained. "I would like to see
the Sheriff keep the firing range
and LCCC have a campus on
the property," Crawford ex-
plained.
Michelle Crawford, the clos-
est neighbor to the firing range,
explained that maybe the pro-.
posed Lake City Community
College campus would be better
located on the 23.5 acres of
property behind the Trenton
Elementary School- campus.
The location of,the school cam-
pus on the Walker Curve prop-
erty involves serious safety is-
sues involving traffic turn lanes
on the big curve near the inter-
section of CR 307. Mrs. Craw-
ford added, "I think there may
be another solution to this
problem in locating the college
campus on the Walker Curve
site, we appreciate the firing.
range located near our home."
Sheriff Turner told the board
that the Resolution that the
board adopted in 2003 has al-
ways excluded the firing range
property from being exchanged.
"At not one point in time has
the firing range ever been in-
cluded in a proposed property
exchange by the County Com-
mission," the Sheriff added. The
firing range has always been
separate because it was pur-
chased by Federal Law En-
forcement Drug forfeiture reve-
nues," Turner stated.
The Sheriff was asked if he
was interested in leasing the
firing range property from the
community college? "Dr. Hall


wants full and exclusive control
of the firing range. I am not in-
terested in entering into a lease
involving property that was pur-
chased with Federal Law En-
forcement Drug Forfeitures
revenues," the Sheriff ex-
plained.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den asked the Sheriff if he
thought that 30 days would
make any difference in reaching
a solution involving the firing
range. He also asked if the
Sheriff's Office could conduct
their tactical training at the Lan-
caster Correctional Institute fir-
ing range. Chief Montgomery
told the board the type of train-
ing the Department of Correc-
tions is required to do is much
different that the Sheriff's Of-
fice training.
"We must try to reach a so-
lution involving the firing range
and the college campus," com-
missioner Tommy Langford ex-
plained. LCCC wants control of
the firing range. I don't want
Gilchrist County to be sued over
the range and I feel Gilchrist
County needs the college cam-
pus," Commissioner Langford
said.
LCCC is interested in con-
ducting 13-week law enforce-'
ment academy training classes
at the Walker Curve site.
Commissioner Mitchell
Gentry asked Superintendent
Buddy Vickers if there would
be a problem involving LCCC
coming into Gilchrist County
with a school campus?
"LCCC has agreed to begin
January 2006 in the Bell High
School Health Academy," re-
ported Superintendent Vickers.
"We don't want to get between
the County Commission and the
Sheriff's Office involving the
firing range," Vickers added.
"We can resolve this, it will
require a commitment from the
Gilchrist County Commission,"
Vickers stated. The superinten-
dent explained that this could
have a very positive economic

My husband, John's class re-
cently celebrated their 30th
class reunion. About 40 class-
mates and spouses spent several
days together on a cruise. One
of the most interesting and im-
pressive members of John's
class that I had never met before
was Cora (Melinda) Frazier
Davis.
Cora will be retiring from the
Marines in a few days. She is a
Master .Gunnery. Sergeant.
Needless to say I was impressed,
with her choice of a career and
even more impressed with her
30 years of service to our coun-
try. Of course that's all pretty
good stuff, but when I found out
she had written and published
her own cookbook the conver-
sation was on.
She seems to be a very gener-
ous person, in fact she dedicated
her book to her mother. You
just have to love"sodfie'lidy'Wlo
dedicates a cookbook to their
mother. The book is titled
"Recipes' from the Heart.
Mama's Gift." The dedication
page of Cora's book reads.
"This book is dedicated in
memory of my mother. Rosa L.-
Mitchem, who is my inspiration
when it comes to cooking. She
has taught me that cooking is an
art. She said food should taste
good. Like an thing else'you
should put Nour heart and soul
into. preparing food. She also.
said that a dish does not ha~e to


be fancy, nor the recipe has to
be long to be good. Beside fam-
ily, cooking was,Mom's pride
and joy."
The cookbook is'a collection
of recipes from her mother, her-
self and her family. Also, many
of the friends that she has met
along the 'way in her career
contributed to the book. The
cookbook includes a wide vari-
ety of recipes. Many like the
two I have included in this col-
umn are the .very essence of
southern cuisine.
Cora's favorite recipes in-
clude fried chicken, banana
pudding and homemade dough-
nuts.
Sadls her mother, Mrs. Rosa
L. Mitchem, passed away on
April 17,- 004..Mrs. Mitchem,

home to Trenton from time to
time to visit her man\ relatives

gans, Lindseys, Davises,

ziers,

Once the minimum flow is
established, it will also allow
the Water Management District
to'know how much water they
can safely permit to private, ag-
ricultural or industrial uses. If
this Minimum Flow is set too
low, it would allow the Water
Management District to hand
out more permits than are safe
for our local water supply. This
could also- open a door to the
every-present threat of a large-
scale water transfer from the
Suwannee to South West Flor-

Jesus Did Refuse Some
(Kent Heaton)


The United Church of Christ continues to run
its commercial touting its philosophy of accep-
tance of all people with no regard to their moral
station of life. It seems to be an appealing plea on
the surface for those who are ignorant of God's
word but the truth is realized when the honest stu-
dent examines the true teaching of Jesus Christ. It
is blasphemous for a pseudo religion such as the
UCC to portray the Son of God as accepting any-
one regardless of their moral standing before Je-
sus' Father.
Luke 19:10 says, "For the Son of man is come
to seek and to save that which was lost." Whom
did Jesus come to save? He came: to save people
that are lost. Luke tells us about a great feast that
Jesus attended. "And Levi made him a great
feast in his own house: and there was a great
company of publicans and of others that sat
down with them. But their scribes and Pharisees
murmured against his disciples, saying, Why do
ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?
And Jesus answering said unto them, They that
are whole need not a physician: but they that are
sick I came not to call the righteous, but sinners
to repentance" (Luke 5:29-32). The scribes and
the Pharisees were distressed because Jesus was
communing with these tax collectors. Jesus ac-
cepted the opportunity to meet with "publicans
and sinners" because they were "sick" and need-
ed to repent.
The liberal, religious mind of our day believes
that Jesus accepted all men and condoned their
"lifestyle" with an acceptance of love that drew a
blind eye to their moral debauchery. The sin of
the scribes and the Pharisees was their prejudice
against those they considered to be of less value
than themselves. Jesus spoke a parable in Luke
18:9-13 about those which "trusted in themselves
that they were righteous, and despised others:
Two men went up into the temple to pray; the


one a Pharisee, and the other a publican. The
Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself,
God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men
are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as
this publican. I fast twice in the week, I give
tithes of all that I possess. And the publican,
standing afar off, would not lift up so much as
his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast,
saying, God be merciful to me a sinner. I tell
you, this man went down to his house justified
rather than the other: for every one that exalteth
himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth
himself shall be exalted" (Luke 18:9-14). Their
spirit is found in the hearts of men today who fail
to understand the value of every soul
Jesus demanded repentance (Luke 13:3)! Those
who are morally out of step with His Father were
in need of a physician because they were spiritual-
ly sick. If He accepted everyone in their "lifestyle"
why would there be a need to "repent"? He told
the woman in John 8 to "go, and sin no more"
(vll). Is.there such a person as a "sinner" today?
In the minds of many religious thinkers, there is
no such thing. Jesus condemned sin! He con-
demned adultery in Matthew 5:27-30; divorce
"for any reason except sexual immorality" in
Matthew 5:31,32 and 19:9; hateful anger in Mat-
thew 5:21-26; lack of love for others in Matthew
25:31-46; hypocrisy in Matthew 23; offending lit-
tle ones in Mark 9:42-48; and unbelief in John
3:36.
"And the times of this ignorance God winked
at; but now commands all men every where to re-
pent" (Acts 17:30). "Know ye not that the un-
righteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God"
(1 Corinthians 6:9). "Behold therefore the good-
ness and severity of God: on them which fell, se-
verity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou contin-
ue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be
cutoff" (Romans 11:22).

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
For the beginning reader this
week we are suggesting you
check out and enjoy Li'L Wolf
Saves the Day, a delightful Dis-:
ney book. Big Bad Wolf is Li'l
Wolf s father and he loves to eat
pigs, especially little pigs. All
the little pigs are friends with
Li'l Wolf. On the day of the
pigs' country fair, Big Bag Wolf
is excited, he knows all the pigs
will be together and he can
catch as,many as he wants. But
Li'l Wolf learns of his father's
plans and warns the pigs so they
can escape and trap the big bad
wolf in a cagethat has a hole
where he can stick his head out.
They enjoyed using his face and
head as a target for their pie
throwing contest. Later Li'l
Wolf released his father.
Ben and Me is an astonishing
story of'the life of Benjamin
Franklin from a manuscript that
was found when an old house in
Philadelphia was being altered.
Robert Lawson edited it and
published it as an account writ-
ten by Ben Franklin's mouse,
Amos. This book will be found
in the junior readers' section of
the library.
A new novel written by Rob-,
ert James Waller is High Plains
Tango. Carlisle McMillan is a
loner until he finds a house in
South Dakota he wants to reno-
vate, using the skills he learned
in his youth from the man who
raised him. Waller. willbe re-.
membered -as the .author of.
Bridges of Madiion County.
Our patrols are most gener-
ous in bringing in media materi-
als to us; books, videos and
audios. We receive these items
almost every day. Remember, if,
you need a receipt for tax pur-
poses, leave your name and ad-
dress and we will mail it to you.


Gilchrist County
Farm Bureau
Annual Meeting
September 22
The Gilchrist County Farm
Bureau will be having their an-
nual meeting on Thursday Sep-
tember 22, 2005 -at the Trenton
Elementary cafeteria in Trenton.
They will be serving a barbecue
dinner with all the trimmings at
6:30 p.m. and are asking that the
members bring their favorite
dessert.
There will be door prizes with
the final door prize being $50.
You will have to be present to
win.
Come on out and enjoy visit-
ing with other farm bureau
members.

September Is Library
Card Sign Up Month
September is Library Card
Sign-Up Month. Many cards in
your wallet promise reward but
can cost you the world. Only
one card, your library card, can
bring you the world. That's
why it is called "The Smartest
Card."
What a better time to get a li-
brary card? With school back in
session, students can use their
library cards to research for pa-
pers or find a title for their next
book report. It's no wonder that
studies show that children who
are read to in the home and who
use the library perform better in
school and are more likely to
use the library as a source of
lifetime learning.
During election seasons, vot-
ers can find the information they
need to help them make an in-
formed decision about candi-
dates for office and issues of lo-
cal, state and national
importance. Access to informa-
tion has never been more crucial
to the functioning of our democ-
ratic society, and the library is
the perfect place for making that
information available to all the
people.
From health to history, from
food to fund-raising, whether
it's online or in print, you can
find at your library.

Gallagher Warns
About New Identity
Theft Scam
Florida's Chief Financial Of-
ficer Tom Gallagher is warning
Floridians to be on the lookout
for a ne\\ identity theft scheme.
In the scheme a victim re-
ceives a phone call from some-
one claiming to be a local court
worker who tells the victim they
failed to report for jury duty.
To further put the victim off-
guard, they may say an arrest
warrant has been issued. When
the victim says they never re-
ceived a jury ,duty notice, the
scammer.asks for personal in-
formation to check their records.
"You should be wary of any-
one who calls asking for per-
sonal information," said Galla-
gher. "No legitimate business
would ask for such information
by phone."
This latest identity theft
scheme has already been re-'
ported in Michigan, Ohio,
Texas, Arizona, Illinois, Penn-
sylvania, Minnesota, Oregon
and Washington state.
Gallagher, said this scheme
seems to be a spin-off of one in
which a caller or an e-mailer
poses as an employee of a fi-
nancial institution requesting in-
formation to re-activate a, vic-
tim's bank account. And
Gallagher has echoed concerns
from Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson that scammers
set up fake charities to prey on
people's sympathy for victims
of Hurricane Katrina.
Gallagher offered these tips to
Floridians: Do not give your
personal information to a tele-
phone or e-mail solicitor, only
give to disaster relief charities
you know are reliable and be-
ware of "copy-cat" names that
sound. like reputable charities,
make checks payable to the
charitable organization and. not


to an individual collecting a do-
nation, carry only a few credit
cards with you, shred all credit
card receipts and solicitations,
cancelled checks and financial
documents before throwing
them away, don't leave outgo-
ing mail in your mailbox over-
night, and check your credit re-
port at least twice a year.

Associate yourself with men
of good quality if you esteem
your own reputation for 'tis
better to be alone than in bad
company.

Bell Annual

Christmas Parade To

Celebrate 25th

Anniversary


Can't you just feel the occa-
sional nip in the early morning
air.... NOT HARDLY! It's still
warm outside, really warm, but
that' matters not, because the
Bell Christmas Parade will be
held the first weekend in De-
cember whether it's hot or
cold.... it's coming!
Now here are some facts.
The parade committee has met
several times during the past
few months and things are lin-
ing up. Literally lining up...just
like our wonderful hometown
parade does every 'year about
this time. We have only ten
short weeks to get you signed
up. The date for our extrava-
ganza is Saturday, December 3,
2005. So mark you calendars
now! This year, when you write
the date on your calendar, be
sure to write it in silver as it's
our 25th Anniversary...our silver
anniversary. Now a silver cele-
bration in the Town of Bell can
bring only one theme to mind:
"Silver Bells. It's Christmas
Time In the City of Bell."
The street side arts and crafts
booths will open again, the ven-
dors will arrive early, the bands
will play, and the children will
sing. There will be food, enter-
tainment and Santa. There will
be Christmas, a Silver Christ-
mas.
Again this year we will have
trophies in the following catego-
ries: Business, Civic/School Or-
ganization, Individual/Family,
and Churches. Trophies for the
best-dressed bicycle and horses
(with updated Coggins test) will
also be awarded immediately
following the parade. And re-
member, the 'traveling' trophy
is yours for only ten more
weeks and then it goes to an-
other of the best-decorated4 Gil-
christ County Emergency Vehi-

cle, or will it? Are you going to
keep it?
You won't want to miss out
on anything, so grab a fan and
get started. It's still hot out and
things are really warming up
with the 25h Anniversary of the
Bell Christmas Parade. So
spread the news and get your
friends and family involved this
year.

to earn a living and these funds
will help to ease some of the
burden on his family.

class, along with the fourth year
cadets. The second year cadets
are now separated into a class
with the third year cadets. This
new configuration ensures that
the first year cadets can learn
everything they need to know
about the program, with the aid
of the experienced fourth year
cadets. The second year cadets
are also still in the process of
equipping themselves with the
Army JROTC way of operating,
so they are aided by the third
year cadets, who have already


familiarized themselves with the
program.
We also have a new Chain of
Command this year which con-
sists of the following cadets:
Battalion Commander, Lieuten-
ant Colonel Elyse Fowler; Ex-
ecutive Officer, Major Amanda
Nobs; Command Sergeant Ma-
jor Duran Carmen; Staff Ser-
geant Major David Whitwood.
The following cadets make up
the staff, and are in charge of
the "behind the 'scenes" work
for the JROTC program: S-1,


Captain Juan Morales; S-2,
Captain Tracey Christopherson;
S-3, Captain Amanda Jamison;
S-4, Captain Dawn Faught; S-5,
Captain Amber Short. We
would also like to welcome our
38 returning cadets and 42 new
cadets.
The JROTC program looks
forward to another successful
year! Let's continue bringing
pride and honor to our country,
school, and families!

with so much quilting going
on. B.J. is working on a "Cat"

so many times when little ones
are given a quilt they hang on
to them for a long time.
Nick Turner and ten boys
were out on Tuesday. They
painted, mowed, watered,
cleaned flower beds, and got
us looking so great. We were
honored to have Lieutenant
Charlie Sphyler from Lancas-
ter come out ard visit. We are
always happy to tell them how
much Lancaster and the many-
boys have done for us.
What a great surprise to
have Hildreth Johnson make us
oh so good biscuits. She
knows how we all love them
and we all enjoyed them, hot,
out of the oven. Thank you
Hildreth, you can do that any
time.
S We are getting our dates to-
gether for the quilt show and
the bus tour. We will be going
to the fair in February but

Legionnaires, Families, Friends:
Legion Appalled by ruling: "Pledge of Allegiance is
Unconstitutional" The National American Legion's stand on the
judges ruling. Indianapolis, September 14, 2005 Disgusted by
today's ruling by a federal judge in San Francisco that the Pledge of
Allegiance is unconstitutional, the leader of the nation's largest
veterafis organization pledged a total unequivocal commitment by
America's 2.7 million Legionnaires to "fight with all of our legal and
legislative might to protect the right of school children to recite the
Pledge of Allegiance."
U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton ruled, "the pledge's reference
to one nation 'under GOD' violates school children's right to be free
from a cercive requirement to affirm GOD."
"I am disgusted by this ludicrous attack on the traditional values of
the citizens of this country," said Thomas L. Brock, national
commander of The American Legion. "I'm sure the vast majority of
Americans feel exactly the same way., The words 'under GOD' are a
tnbute to America's constitutionally protected religious freedom.
There is nothing wrong with school children acknowledging the fact
that the founders of our republic openly stated in their writings,
before we even had the Pledge, that the United States is indeed 'one
nation under GOD."
"What is really at stake here is the moral direction of our nation -
the right of a free people to recognize that there is a Creator
referenced in the Declaration of Independence, Brock said. "The
American Legion will never back down. The right of our children to
recite the Pledge of Allegiance deserves full protection. We will do
everything in our power to see that right is restored permanently."
"I am confident that the Supreme Court will uphold our Pledge of
Allegiance consistent with the desires of WE THE PEOPLE." Brock
said. The motto of The American Legion is "For GOD and country."
I was prepared to start on a series of the four principles of The
American Legion, but more important business has arisen that needs
our attention. Next week we will comment on our position of the
ACLU and the eroding of the American way of life.
We have an important Executive Committee meeting tonight at 7
PM. All members are welcome. We will be discussing the future of
post 91's activities and fundraisers.
Disaster-affected legionnaires are offered fast assistance through
the legion's National Emergency Fund. Also active, guard and
reserve legion members may also qualify for immediate grants from
the fund. If you fall into these categories, please call Dean Williams
for further information.
I am appalled at all these assaults on our way of life. If it's not for
terrorists from other countries, it's from our own system fighting
against us. It is time for the American people to say 'ENOUGH' and
put this nation back on the track our founding fathers set forth for us.
Remember all our troops, all over the world. Please give an extra
prayer for there safe,return. Membership is our key to success.
Please send your dues in and all eligible veterans that are not
members, contact Dean Williams for:more information.

Attorneys Displaced
By Katrina Now
Allowed To Seek
Temporary Practice
In Florida
The Florida Supreme Court
ordered Wednesday (September
14th) that Florida will permit
lawyers from areas devastated
by Hurricane Katrina to provide
limited legal services in Florida
to their displaced clients. The
order was a result of an emer-
gency motion filed by The
Florida Bar that changed the ef-
fective date of certain rule
amendments that would have
been effective January 1, 2006,
regarding the multi-
jurisdictional practice of law.
This will go a long way in as-
sisting displaced attorneys and
their families and clients," said
Florida Bar President Alan B.
Bookman. "It lets attorneys
from the affected states practice
some law temporarily in Flor-
ida. We wanted to provide them
with a way to continue working
and helping their clients."
The Court's Wednesday ac-
tion allows an attorney from an-
other state to provide certain le-
gal services in Florida on a
temporary basis and authorizes
The Florida Bar to discipline the
attorney for misconduct if ap-
propriate. The attorney must be
licensed and in good standing in
his or her home state.
. The Florida' Bar has
provided information at
www.FloridaBar.org to answer
questions about temporary or
permanent practice of law in
Florida and to instruct Florida
Bar members on assisting dis-
placed attorneys and represent-
ing victims of Hurricane Ka-
trina.


The full motion and order can
be found at the Florida Supreme
Court Web site: www.florida
supremecourt.org.

FWC Officer Arrests
Stolen Boat's
"Captain"
A Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officer arrested a suspect
charged with stealing a com-
mercial fishing vessel out of
Madeira Beach Monday.
FWC Lt. Bruce Cooper, pa-
trol supervisor from the Big
Bend Field Office, took Tony
Baumgardner, 37, of Madeira
Beach, into custody for grand
theft of a vessel.
Cooper had received a call
from the U.S. Coast Guard
about the Duchess Too, a 31-
foot commercial long line vessel
that had been stolen in Pinellas
County and located grounded
off of Spring Creek in Taylor
County. A private boater called
the USCG to tell them he had
just picked up the captain off
the Duchess Too and was taking
him to the Keaton Beach Ma-
rina.
Cooper and! deputies with the
Taylor County Sheriffs Office
responded to the Keaton Beach
Marina to meet the private ves-
sel and the suspect. .However,
the boat made it to the marina,
prior to the officers' arrival and
a search for the Suspect began.
Cooper located the suspect
and placed him into custody.
Baumgardner was transported
the Taylor County Jail. The
stolen vessel, Duchess Too,
was also located and secured.
The owner was contacted.
FWC is conducting the theft
investigation.

SRWMD Urges
Counties To Join
Online Parcel Data
Initiative
The Suwannee River Water
Management District (District)
is calling on all property ap-
praisers within its 15-county re-
gion to participate in a major
initiative to make online digital
parcel data available to the pub-
lic by the end of 2006.
At its meeting Tuesday, Sep-
tember 13th, the.District's nine-
member governing board
adopted a resolution urging
property appraisers to convert
parcel data from paper to digital
format, and to make the infor-
mation available on county-
managed web sites.
"This is one of the most im-
portant tools available to help us
all make better decisions about
land use, resource management,
flood protection and other is-
sues," explains District Execu-
tive Director Jerry Scarborough.
"Recent events along the Gulf
Coast have proven how vital it
is to gather the best, most accu-
rate information possible, and to
make it readily available to the
public," Scarborough says.
"Everyone the District, the
counties, and residents will
benefit from having this infor-
mation on the web."
For its part, the District seeks
to enter into partnerships with
property appraisers and will


provide financial and technical
assistance to help convert paper
maps to digital, as it already has
done for several counties.
"We want to help every
county in our District to get on
board and online with this,"
says Governing Board Member
Don Everett, Jr., of Taylor
County.
"We're living in an age where
paper is 'out' and pixels are 'in'.
With this technology, counties
can better serve the taxpayers by
cutting the cost of doing busi-
ness while at the same time
meeting the needs of the public
more effectively and effi-
ciently," adds Everett.
The District's goal is to make
it possible for anyone to go on-
line and obtain all the data they
need to make an informed deci-
sion about a piece of property.
For example, a person would be
able to identify a specific parcel
'and find out if it is located in a
flood zone, if it contains wet-
lands, and what types of land
uses are adjacent.
Converting the data to a digi-
tal format also will help stream-
line implementation of the Dis-
trict-wide flood map
modernization program recently
launched by the District in part-
nership with the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency
(FEMA).

In 1954, President Dwight D.
Eisenhower signed legislation
inserting "under God" after the
words "one nation." The

Pledge consistent with the de-
sires of we the people," Bock

Legion Appalled By
Ruling: "Pledge Of
Allegiance Is
Unconstitutional"
Disgusted by the recent ruling
by a federal judge in San Fran-
cisco thatthe Pledge of Alle-
giance is unconstitutional, the
leader of the nation's largest
veterans organization pledged a
total. unequivocal commitment
by America's 2.7 million Le-
gionnaires to "fight with all of
our legal and legislative might
to protect the right of school-
children to recite the Pledge of,
Allegiance." .
U.S. District Judge Lawrence
Karlton ruled, "the pledge's ref-
erence to one nation 'under
God' violates school children's
right to be free from a coercive
requirement to affirm God."
"I am disgusted by this ludi-
crous attack on the traditional
values of the citizens of this
country," said Thomas L. Bock,
national commander of The
American Legion. "I'm sure the
vast majority of Americans feel
exactly the same way. The
words 'under God' are a' tribute
to America's constitutionally
protected religious freedom.
There is nothing wrong with
schoolchildren acknowledging
the fact that the founders of our
'republic openly stated in their
writings, before we even had the
Pledge, that the United States is
indeed 'one nation under God.'"
The American Legion previ-
ously filed a "friend of the
court" brief with the U.S. Su-
preme Court when atheist Mi-
chael Newdow's lawsuit to re-
move the words from the Pledge
was upheld by the Ninth Circuit
in June 2002 but dismissed by
the top court on Flag Day 2004.
The Court ruled that Newdow
could not sue to ban'the pledge
from his daughter's school and
others because he did not have
legal authority to speak for her.
In last year's decision, the court
sidestepped the broader question
of separation of church and
state.
"What is really at stake here
is the moral direction of our na-
tion the right of a free people
to recognize that there is a
Creator referenced in the Decla-
ration of Independence," Bock
said. "The American Legion
will never back down. The right
of our children to recite the
Pledge of Allegiance deserves
full protection. We will do eve-
rything in our. power to see that
right is restored permanently."

4 Pets Sake
We are receiving calls from
people who have made it out of
the areas that were hit by Ka-
trina. Veterinarians are refer-
ring calls to our office for as-
sistance in regards to rabies
vaccinations for their pets. Be-
cause of various and additional
expenses Katrina has bestowed
on us, we are making plans to
have an emergency yard sale,
Saturday, October 8th at Paw
Paws. It is located on Hwy 26
in Waccasassa.
Our fund-raisers have been
curtailed because we too have
experienced the tragedy of gas
price increases. If you have
used our programs in the past
but never donated, this would be
the perfect opportunity to do so!
Due to the response we are
getting from our programs we
now have a waiting list for sur-
geries. In all fairness, please
give the people who have never
used our programs 4 chance to
have their pets altered.
4 Pets Sake does not have a
thrift store so all our contacts
are done through phone or e-
mail. Please let us know if you
can donate to such a worthy
cause.
Contact us for information at
P.O. Box 1014, Bell 32619;
phone 386-935-0975 or 866-
727-2972, or e-mail fourets-
sake@alltel.net. Until next
time be happy just for the love
of them.

Ayers Health And
Rehabilitation "Gives
It Up" To Trenton
Rotary Club
On Tuesday, September 13,
2005, Ayers Health and Reha-
bilitation and Trenton Rotary's
softball teams took to the field
at McArthur Park to raise
money for the Suwannee Valley
Leagues. The teams sold
T-shirts, acquired sponsorships
and sold concessions at the
event and raised $2,700. Funds
will be used for improvements
to the grounds at McArthur Park
to make things more comfort-
able for spectators.
Everyone had a great time at
the softball game and enjoyed
watching these seasoned pros
show off their very special
moves. In the end there could
be only one winner and Ayers
Health and Rehabilitation had to
give it up to Trenton Rotary
Club, 6-5.
They all hope you take the
time to share sports with your
child. Children involved in
sports activities do better in
school and are less likely to get
into trouble than children who
were never involved in extra-
curricular activities. Good job
everyone. You put on quite a
show!


Freedom is never free.

Gilchrist Sheriff and
LCCC President Are
Deadlocked On Who
Will Control Firing
Range
(Continued from Page One)
impact on Gilchrist County in
the future.
"Does Lake City Commu-
nity College realize that Gil-
christ County is an agriculture-
based county which practices
the spraying of chemicals and
other pest management prac-
tices?" Commissioner Kenrick
'Thomas asked.
The Chief Deputy reported
to the board that a new firing
range would cost between
$300,000 and $500,000, de-
pending on whether the county
has the land to locate the facil-
ity.
A neighboring resident,
Tommy Jones, told the board
that the center of the county is
actually CR 232 east. "I can live
with a firing range across the
highway from my house and
farm, but the traffic involving a
college campus will just add to
additional problems," Jones ex-
plained.
The board asked the com-
mittee to schedule meetings
over the next 30 days and
broaden their scope involving
reaching a solution to the firing
range issue.

Suwannee River Fair
Association Is
Requesting Support
To Expand Livestock
Show Facility

ity such as clearing land, paving
or hauling fill dirt.
This arena is a much-needed
facility because the current
structure is no longer large
enough to seat the many par-
ents, grandparents and friends
who attend the livestock fair
each year to support the youth
of the Tri-County area.
Mr. Smith explained to the
board that the fair association is
planning to construct the new
facility behind the old fair barn
in an area that will allow the use
of the existing livestock pens
and bedding areas.
Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford made a motion to draft a
Resolution 05-50 to support the
Suwannee River Fair Associa-
tion in their request for legisla-
tive funding through the De-
partment of Agriculture,
Commissioner Charles Bronson.
Commissioner Randy Durden
gave a second to the motion.
The board voted 5-0 in favor of
the motion.
Commission Durden made a


motion to support the Suwannee
River Fair Association with a
donation of $10,000 or in-kind
contribution to assist in the con-
struction of the show facility.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
gave a second to the motion.
The board voted 5-0 in favor.
The Dixie County Board of
County Commissioners agreed
to support the fair association
with a Resolution as well as a
$10,000.00 donation to the pro-
ject in a recent meeting.
The Levy County Board of
County Commissioners ap-
proved a Resolution in support
of the grant. The board also
pledged in-kind services of lime
rock and hauling to the pro-
posed project during their Sep-
tember 20th meeting.
