Gilchrist County
Is Asked To
Remember Our
Troops
As residents of Gilchrist
County we are known for "Re-
membering Our Troops" in a
very positive and, unashamedly,
public way. With that we must
not forget that the remembering
entails prayer for them as well.
One of the most powerful


parts of the armor of a soldier of'
Christ is the weapon of prayer.
The list of names below are
those who are serving on active
duty in the military and who are
either from Gilchrist County or
have a relative who resides here.
So please keep them in daily
prayer as they actively defend
us from terrorism, for as we all
know, "freedom is not free."

Comments
By John M. Ayers
The wind carried a chill with
it Friday morning as a group of
hard core anglers braved the
-elements to try their hand at
saltwater fishing out from the
town of Suwannee. This group
included Dr. Mason Long, Mark
Schuler and I. We decided to
take this opportunity to go
offshore since the sea conditions
were perfect. The tidal
conditions were less than we
expected and the productivity of
our trip was also disappointing,
but it was still an enjoyable day.
As we left the mouth of
McGriff Channel from the
Suwannee River, the cold wind
kept us bundled up in' our,
heaviest clothes until we finally
reached our first destination in
25 feet of water.
I had talked with a guy at the
marina and he explained the
grouper were biting in 25 feet of
water. He pointed out that the
fishing" had been more.
productive on the bottom than


pulling the big-lipped trolling
baits.
We tried our hand at bottom
bumping, but we could not even
get a bite from a pink mouth or
rock bass (black fish). At that
point I began to have my
reservations about catching any
fish with frozen bait on the
bottom.
Our next stop put us in just
less than 40 feet of water. This,
time we decided to throw out
the trolling baits and drag them
for a while. In particular areas
we would run over what
appeared to be a huge school of
baitfish in the bottom one-third
of the water column. From time
to time I would circle around
and go back through what I
thought might be schooling
baitfish, but we were never able
to get a strike from these fish.
We did though happen to
pull our baits in front of two
grouper that hit both of our
trolling baits at the same time. I
was excited as one of the rods
seemed to bend a lot. I was
really hoping for a grouper in
excess of 12 pounds. When
Mark and Mason finally .got the

Dr. Mason Long of Cedar Key was pleased as he is
holding up two of the gag grouper that were caught last
week while fishing with Mark Schuler and John Ayers.


Fish to the boat, I was pleased to
find that the two fish were legal.
We trolled around this area
for some time, but just didn't
seem to be able to find any more
hungry fish.
We left this spot and headed
to deeper water. I had some
GPS points where good
structure is identified in 50 feet
of water that I had not fished for
some time. We trolled over this
large area but couldn't get a
strike.
We stopped by White City
Bridge, an artificial reef in
hopes, of catching an amber
jack. Mark was working a white
jig when his pole suddenly took
on a new bend. He wrestled the
fish to the top of the water to
determine the AJ was not of
legal length. An AJ must be 28"
in length from the tip of the
nose to the fork of the tail.
We drifted over this 'area of
artificial structure and had only
the one bite.
On our way home we
stopped back to check on.five
stone crab traps that I had put
out some time ago. I was lucky
enough to be able to harvest my
first crab claws out of these five
traps.
The catch rate on this trip
was disappointing, but I am
afraid,. we are. just seeing the
beginning of a rebuilding time
for the pink mouth and black
fish following the red tide. The
guy at the marina pointed out
that there had been no
determination on the effects that
the red tide has had on this area.
I think the algae bloom has
caused greater 'damage than
some people would want some
.anglers to believe. It will just
take a long time to build up the
.species that have been hit the
hardest.

America will never seek, a
permission slip to defend the
security of our country.
.-George W. Bush


New Year's Day is just
around the corner. I can't
believe how fast 2005 has flown
by.
My family, along with many
other Southern families, will dig
Deep into a big pot of cooked
black-eyed peas on New Year's
Day. I'm not a very
superstitious person, but I
always try to eat black-eyes on
New Year's Day. We believe,
as generations of Southerners
before us have, that eating
black-eyes on New Year's day

will bring you luck for the next
twelve months. Some even
cook and eat mustard greens,
which is, believed to bring
wealth. The mustards are kinda
hit or miss with our family each
year but the black-eyes are a
must. At our house the black-
eyes are served over rice and
usually are accompanied by
fried ham or bacon. We also
usually cook mustard and bake
sweet potatoes. The bread is
usually cornbread or fried
hoecake.

^'ew~-J^/@


- 2 cups dried black-eyed peas
Water
~ 2 tablespoons bacon grease
1/2 pound ham hocks
Salt and pepper
McCormick Season Salt
Place the dried peas in a pot
and cover with water, allow the
peas to set for one hour in the
water.
While black-eyes soak wash
and cook ham hocks. To cook
ham hocks bring about 4 cups
of water to a boil. Add ham
hocks and bacon grease and
lower temperature to medium
and cook the entire hour. Add
salt, pepper and season salt to
taste.
Drain water off peas and rinse
them two or three more times.
Then add drained peas to the
ham hock broth and continue to
cook for about two hours. Peas
should be tender and broth
should be a little bit thick.
While cooking for the two hours
stir occasionally and check
broth. If peas become too dry
add a little extra water.
Makes.6 to 8 servings.

will be, decided among men. A

How To Have A Great New Year
(Kent Heaton)


The New Year is upon us and a new page
unfolds from the centuries of time allowing us to
make a fresh start in our lives. The truth of the matter
is that the change from 2005 to 2006 will take place
in the change of a day much as it has since creation.
We live with time and calendars judging our thoughts
and actions. Each new day, new week, new month or
new year is always an opportunity to begin with
greater determination and commitment. These
principles of renewal should always be a part of our
life.
Ed Britt said, "We are victims of our past,
prisoners of the present and judges of our future. "
The past cannot be changed, the present is all we
have and the future is determined by the choices we
make. How can I make the best of what I have done
in the past, the choices I make for the future to grant
me peace and hope in the present?
Paul offers a great statement of hope in his letter
to Philippi. Throughout his epistle, he exhorts the
brethren to live for Christ and fill their lives with
rejoicing. He offers a personal glimpse of his own life
to persuade them to conduct themselves worthy of the
gospel of Christ (1:27). While he attained the greatest
accolades men could bestow upon other men, he
considered all those things as "rubbish loss for
Christ" (3:3-7). Paul wanted to know the "excellence
of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord" (3:8). To
be happy in this world, we too must strive not just for
the knowledge of Christ but the superiority
("surpassing worth" RSV) of that knowledge.
Paul outlines those things he strove for in life:
he wanted to "gain Christ" (3:8); he wanted to "be
found in Him" (3:9); he wanted to "know Him", to
know the "power of Christ' resurrection", the
"fellowship of Christ' suffering" (3:10) and Paul
wanted to "attain to the resurrection from the dead"
(3:11). These six things motivated his life.


His growth was measured by his knowledge of
Christ. Not just a superficial knowledge but a deep
and abiding understanding of the nature of Christ, the
life of Jesus of Nazareth and the pure deity of the Son
of God. The commitment of Paul to serve the Lord is
his desire to "attain to the resurrection from the dead"
(3:11). His choices in life were governed by gaining
Christ and being found in Christ. That is all that
mattered to Paul the things of the world were-loss
for Christ.
The key to success in Paul's life was a simple
formula. He put the past behind him, pressed on daily
for the cause of Christ and "reaching forward to those
things where are ahead" lived for "the prize of the
upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (3:12-14). How
did the 'chief of sinners' (1 Timothy 1:15) deal with
his past? "Forgetting those things which are
behind" (3:13). It is not an easy task to lay down the
past but Paul learned the value of leaving those things
of yesterday where they belong. He could not change
what he did but he could change today. Paul lived for
the present as he pressed on, reached forward, press
toward and walked by the same rule that brought him.
to the grace of God.'
Paul had something to live for not the past and
not clearly the present. Paul lived for the future. His
desire was to "lay hold of that for which Christ
Jesus has also laid hold of me"; to reach "those
things which are ahead"; to obtain the "goal for the
prize." He lived every day learning about the Lord,
living for the Lord and longing for the Lord.
How can I have a great New Year? Follow the
admonition of Paul to live for Christ. Measure your
life not by the success given by men but the prize
promised by God for a life filled with the knowledge
of His Son. "For our citizenship is in heaven;
whence also we wait for a Savior, the Lord Jesus
Christ" (Philippians 3:20).

Waccasassa Plantation Holds

Christmas Breakfast For

Gilchrist County Children


Shown are staff members of Lancaster Correctional Institution and the gifts they gathered for
the Guardian Ad Litem Program.


Lancaster
Correctional
On Wednesday, December 21,
2005 the staff at the Lancaster
Correctional Institution put the
finishing touches on wrapping
the many gifts they had
purchased for 17 children that
the facility had adopted through
the Guardian Ad Litem Program
through Children & Family
Services. This was their second
year participating in the program
through Children & Family
Services and they are looking
forward to giving a helping
hand again next year. Giving
to children in need becomes
contagious; many employees
without children of their own
found themselves caught in
the spirit of giving. The staff
of Lancaster Correctional
Institution hopes everyone will
give to a child this year.

Winter Break Day At
The Bell Library
"Twas the Night before
Christmas and all through the
house not a creature was stirring,
not even a mouse...Mother
and Dad with their nightcap
and scarf..." Who would ever
believe that many years ago,
people really wore nightcaps and
scarves to bed to keep their heads
warm? On this wintery Tuesday
the children from Kathy's All
Things Daycare learned this
very piece of history during their
trip to .The Bell Library.
The Bell Library was
illuminated with 13 glowing
boys and girls; who enjoyed the
reading of Twas a Night before
Christmas by Mr. Joe Vaught.
Mrs. Grace Vaught was onhand
to demonstrate and explain why
folks, from years gone by, wore
these winter-time head dressings;


rD Richard W11. V


and answered questions from her
attentive audience.
The children enjoyed crafting
Christmas decorations to take
home with them. They each
put together a wreath, a spindle
snowman, a maraca snowman, a
snowman necklace, a snowman
bookmark, and a mint ornament.
Afterwards, all enjoyed hot
chocolate and cookies.
We enjoyed having the
children from the daycare come,
every bit as much as they did.
The Bell Library sends a "Thank
you" to the Jordan Family for
donating the snacks and crafts.
We also send a special thanks to
our student volunteers, Rahma
Mkuu, Erica Dahlgren, and
Natasha Dahlgren; who helped
assist the children and keep the
sequins, sparkles and glue on
the tables instead of all over the
children.
We look forward to our next


"Winter-Break Day" at Bell
Library; on Tuesday, December
27, we again had the pleasure
of being visited by Kathy's All
Things Daycare with a new and
exciting book and activity which
was presented by Mrs. Grace
Vaught and Mrs. Mary Jordan.

always a large aray of collector-
model toys presented by dealers

State Of Florida
Meets Federal
Deadline
The State of Florida recently
announced the completion of
the new Florida Voter Registra-
tion System (FVRS), meeting
the federal deadline of January
2006. Under federal legislation,
the Help America Vote Act of
2002 (HAVA), and state legisla-
tion passed, in 2003 and 2005,.
the State of Florida, through the
Chief State Election Official, is
required to implement a single
uniform, centralized, interactive
and computerized statewide
voter registration list, defined,
maintained, arid administered at
the state level. "Florida is once
again a national leader in the
elections arena," said Interim
Secretary of State David Mann.
"I'm confident the new Florida
Voter Registration System,
developed oni time. and,,under:
budget, 'will be a model other,
states can look to for compliance
with the federal Help America
Vote Act."
The development of the sys-
term was a collaborative effort
which included input from Flori-
da's 67 Supervisors of Elections,
their staff, and vendors of voter
registration systems currently in
use by the counties. Addition-
ally, in 2004 the Department of
State created a diverse steering
committee whose purpose was
to work with all major stake-
holders on the development of
the system by providing their
expertise and input. "Florida
will have one of the best state-
wide voter registration systems
ini the nation as a result of the
collaborative efforts of the state,
supervisors, vendors, and as-
sociated agencies," said Susan
Gill, Citrus County Supervisor
Sof Elections and President of the
Florida State Association of Su-
pervisors of Elections. "We look
forward to going live statewide
on January 3, 2006."
SFlorida's technical solution
for meeting HAVA requirements
is unique within the country.
Florida's 67 counties will
continue to utilize their exist-
ing systems which have been
retained with modifications to
interface in real time with the
FVRS.. This course of action
was crafted to minimize any
disruptive impact to' the coun-
ties; to ensure compliance by
the federal deadline of Janu-
ary 2006; and to save the State
thousands of dollars. Many
states which chose a different
approach are meeting signifi-
cant delays and added costs for
implementation. According to
Electionline.org, nearly one
third of all states will miss the
federal deadline.
The real time functionality
of the system will significantly
reduce the occurrence of voter

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, December 22, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum. I
think everyone will be glad to get
back to normal. Buying, travel-
ing, and getting stressed out will
soon be over. I love Christmas
because we celebrate my Lord's
birth but to me Thanksgiving
is my day. Each day is the day
to be thankful for and know
how much we are blessed and
loved. Friends and family are so
important in our lives. We look
around and see so much trouble,
sickness, problems, and stress.
But let's all remember that all of
this we have today is all we will
have, for one day it will all be
Made better, for even this shall
pass. Time is the most valuable
thing we have today. Stay busy,
stay healthy, give your. problems
to the One who solves all things
in His way.
Quilting was done on both
quilts. Next Tuesday, when the

tions, Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles,
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, and the Clerk of
the Courts, all who have been
instrumental in the develop-
ment and implementation of
the database. The Department,
through support of the Legisla-
ture, has responded to the new
responsibilities mandated by
HAVA by establishing a new
Bureau of Voter Registration
Services. One of the primary
responsibilities of the bureau
is to ensure the credibility and
reliability of information that
will be sent to the Supervisors
of Elections regarding possible
ineligibility due to mental inca-
pacity and felony convictions.
These determinations will be
handled by the bureau on a case
by case basis. Bureau staff will
conduct research using data
from the Department of Correc-
tions,, Department, of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles,
Florida Department 'of Law
Enforcement, and the Clerk
of the Courts, to make each
determination. The Depart-
ment believes the new Florida
Voter .Registration System will
provide greater registration ser-
vices to the voters and ensure
the integrity and accuracy of

Bell Students Excel
Congratulations to the Bell
Elementary School Running
Program. As a group, they broke
every record since the beginning
of the program five years ago.
The program is a six week jog-
ging program where the student
must jog a complete lap (1/4
mile) around the track without
stopping to get credit. They can
jog as many as they want each
day but with 18 days to complete
the program they must average
over two laps (1/2 mile) each
day in class in order to make our
10 Mile Club.
We do this for our second
Through fifth grades. When we
began in 2001, 31 students out
of 361 made the club which
represented just over eight
percent of our enrollment. In
2002, we had 71 out of 350
make the club for 20 percent
of our total students. In 2003,
we had 142 out of 377 for 37.5
percent. In 2004, 187 out of 361
for 51.8 percent made it. This
year we had 218 out of 365 for
60 percent of our enrollment.


Not only have more and more
made the club, but they have
gone farther and farther. After
2003 we had to add a 20 and 30
Mile Club. This year we added a
40 Mile Club with four members
and a 50 Mile Club with three
members. A 50 Mile Club
member had to jog right at three
miles a day for each day in order
to make it.
This year, as a school, we ran
4,272 miles total with all the
students.
All the participants who made
the 10 Mile Club received a
certificate and a running medal
for their accomplishment. Any
one making the 20 Mile Club
or more also received a trophy.
This year we had 72 students
receive trophies.'
Our 40 Mile Club members
were Christian Whiting and
James. Dechow from the third
grade and Ashley Anderson and
Morgan McKenzie from the
fifth grade.
Our 50 Mile Club members
were Cole White from the third
grade and Wendy Trantham and
Olivia Bailey from the fifth


grade.
We are extremely proud of all
our students who participated
and for how hard they worked.

Bears Looking To
Fatten Up; Residents
Shouldn't Help
Backyard bear sightings have
increased throughout the state in
recent years and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) said re-
cently that residents should not
lay out the welcome mat for the
big furry critters.
In the fall, bears search for
fallen acorns as they try to gain
weight before winter, which
often brings, them into neigh-
borhoods. Though bears have a
natural fear of people, "They
can smell food from more than a
mile away," said Stephanie
Simek, Bear Program coordina-
tor with the FWC. "If they are
rewarded with an easy meal,
they learn quickly to return to
the scene."
These easy meals include un-
secured garbage cans, bird feed-
ers and a pet's food left on the
back porch.
Residents can avoid unpleas-
ant bear encounters by taking
some simple steps to ensure that
living in bear country is a safe
and enjoyable experience.
What you can do:


Remember: feeding bears is
against the law.
Store all food, garbage and
compost in secure areas.
Temporarily remove wildlife
feeders if there are bears in the
area.
While Florida black bears
never have attacked, anyone in
Florida, Simek said people
should give bears ample space
and never attempt to disturb, pet
or feed them.
"A bear that stays in an area
for long periods often reflects
more of a people problem than a
bear problem," Simek said.
FWC wildlife biologists re-
cently had to capture and relo-
cate three bears from Franklin
and Bay counties the biggest
was a near-record 500-pound
male. These bears were feeding
in unsecured garbage bins at a'
restaurant and school. FWC
biologists tagged and\relocated
the bears to the Apalachicola
National Forest. So far this
year, the FWC received more
than 1,300 calls to report bears,
including sightings and road-
kills.

ing 'with bears, visit

TES First Graders
This Christmas season we've
had some wonderful holiday
activities from so many of you
from our community. Our
residents really enjoy your visits
and generosity. On December 6
we were blessed with about 60
young people from Trenton El-
ementary School. Our residents
just beamed when they saw
the first graders enter the main
dining room to sing Christmas

carols. Of course, our residents
joined right in with them on sev-
eral of the songs they knew. The
young people then sang Christ-
mas carols through the halls to
those who could not come to the
dining room.
What a wonderful experience
for both young and old to share
the Christmas spirit with each
other.
Afterwards the children were
treated to snacks before they
loaded up on that big yellow bus


to take them back to school.
We wish to thank Trenton
Elementary first graders for tak-
ing the time to spread Christmas
cheer with our residents. We
hope that each of you in our
community will have a wonder-
ful and safe holiday season.

AARP News
The meeting of the Gilchrist
County AARP Chapter took
place on December 20 in Tren-
ton. President Geneva Cornwell
welcomed all those present and.
promised an exciting meeting
and indeed it was as upbeat as
any group of seniors can make it.


Lots of good humor and laughter
was enjoyed by all. There were
reports from the various com-
mittee chairs and we are all busy
as we can be doing community
service in one form or another.

we are thankful. We missed you,
Iris.
The guest speaker was Jen-
nie Ferguson who came seeking
volunteer interviewers for the

will begin in January and the
work is very interesting and of
great service to individuals in
the community who need to file
tax returns.
In keeping with the spirit of
the season, Dr. Ralph Rodriguez,
pastor of Bethel Baptist Church,
gave a most inspiring talk about
the true meaning of Christmas
and what it means to follow the
precepts that are .set down for
all who believe and call them-
selves Christians. Our thanks

Record High Gas
Prices Got You
Down?
Do Something
About It!
Industry analysts say our re-
cord high gas prices are likely to
climb even higher and everyone
is either driving around in cir-
cles to find the lowest price or
just griping about them. But,
according to experts, extra miles
can be squeezed out of every
fill-up if drivers followed a few
simple rules.
"The way to save money is in
every drivers' hands, and some-
times feet," said Ray Palermo,
director of public relations for
national auto insurer, Response
Insurance. "Everything comes
.down to two basic categories of
advice," explained Palermo,
"car care and driving habits."
He offered drivers a few pieces
of advice.
Lighten the car's load by re-
moving all unnecessary items
from the trunk, such as the bag
of sand and shovel from the
winter. Every 200 pounds of


weight reduces gas efficiency
by one mile per gallon. If you
have to carry a lot of baggage,
avoid using a roof-top con-
tainer, which will increase the
air drag. If you drive a pick-up
truck, the open bed will have the
same impact, so put a cover on
it.
Incorrectly inflated tires de-
crease fuel efficiency. Check
vehicle and tire manufacturer
for proper inflation.
Don't turn on the air condi-
tioner as a first response to the
heat. Start your drive off with
the windows open to push the
hot air out of the rear windows
and then put on the air condi-
tioner if needed. This will also
enable the air conditioning to
work faster and more efficiently
when turned on. .
Smooth out your driving style
by avoiding "jack,rabbit" starts

and sharp braking. Both expend
gas and can present a hazard for
others on the road.
,t's estimated that every mile
per hour driven above 55 MPH
costs one percent in fuel econ-
omy. So, slowing down can be
both safe and fuel-efficient.
Maintaining a constant speed
also maximizes your car's per-
formance. If road conditions
permit, use your car's cruise
control.

On December 17th, Tom
and Amber Hurley hosted a
breakfast with Santa at Hurley's
Waccasassa Plantation. Over 70
children from Gilchrist County
were treated to a pancake
breakfast prepared by the Spring
Ridge Volunteer Fire Department
and County Commissioner
Tommy Langford. Santa arrived
in style via horse and buggy.
Santa and his helpers
(volunteers from the Suwannee
Valley Leagues) presented each
child with a present and a candy-
filled stocking. Amidst the rain
and cold weather, the families
enjoyed a morning of fun,
fellowship and the true meaning
of the holiday spirit.
Santa and the Hurleys ate
looking forward to seeing
everyone again next year.

Commissioner
Bronson Alerts
Public To Emerging
Canine Flu
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson recently
alerted the public to an emerg-
ing canine respiratory disease
that can mimic symptoms of
"kennel cough" but is more se-
rious and generally requires the
attention of a veterinarian.
Known as "canine influenza"
or "canine flu," the disease is
caused by a virus that recently
has been identified by Univer-
sity of Florida researchers and
has been responsible for severe
respiratory disease outbreaks in
the past year among racing
greyhounds in Florida and other
states.
The highly contagious virus is
beginning to show up in dogs in
shelters, boarding facilities and
clinics in several areas of Flor-
ida, including Miami-Dade,
Broward, Palm Beach and Du-
val counties. And with Hurri-
cane Katrina evacuees accom-
panied by pets temporarily
relocating in numerous parts of
Florida, Bronson believes that
the disease could increase in
coming weeks.
"We already have alerted vet-
erinary practitioners throughout
the state to be on the lookout for
canine flu, and we believe it is
prudent at this time to advise the
public to be.aware of symptoms
of this respiratory ailment and
to respond appropriately,"
Bronson said.
Like "kennel cough," symp-
toms of canine flu include a
cough and nasal discharge, and
sometimes fever and listless-
ness. The State Veterinarian's
Office, which is a division of
Bronson's department, recom-
mends consulting with a veteri-
narian if the dog experiences
severe symptoms or fails to re-

spond to normal "kennel cough"
therapy, which generally in-
volves antibiotics.
Because canine flu is a newly
emerging disease, all dogs, re-
gardless of breed or age, are
susceptible to infection and
have no naturally acquired or
vaccine-induced immunity.
While most dogs that contract
the disease experience what is
regarded as the milder form of
canine flu, some develop a more
acute disease with clinical signs
of pneumonia. Among the latter
group, the mortality rate is be-
tween one and five percent.

When an American says that
he loves his country, he means
not only that he loves the New
England hills, the prairies glis-
tening in the sun, the wide and
rising plains, the great moun-
tains, and the sea. He means
that he loves an inner air, an in-
ner light in which freedom lives
and in which a man can draw
the breath of self-respect.

show evidence of being already in effect in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the National
Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
DATES: The comment period is 90 days following the second publication of this proposed rule in
newspapers) of local circulation.
ADDRESSES: The FIS report and FIRM showing the proposed and proposed modified BFEs and their
delineations are available for inspection at the Community Map Repositories for the communities. The
Community Map Repository addresses are listed below.

Interested-parties should send comments to the community CEO at the address listed below.
Fanning Springs, City of: Send comments to The Honorable Carol J. McQueen, Mayor of the City of

Gilchrist County, Unincorporated Areas: Send comments to Mr. Randy Durden, Chairman of the
Gilchrist County Board.of Commissioners, P.O. Box 37, Trenton, Florida 32693.
FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Either the Mapping Partner at 386-362-1001, the NFIP'
State Coordinator at 850-413-9960, or the Mitigation Division of FEMA in Region IV at 770-220-5406 and ask
for the Regional Project Officer assigned to your community, for assistance.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FEMA gives: notice of the proposed BFE determinations, in
accordance with Section 110 of the Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973 (Pub. L. 93-234); 87 Stat. 980,
which added Section 1363 to the National Flood Insurance Act of' 1968 (Title XIII of the Housing and Urban
Development Act of 1968 (Pub. L.. 90-448)); 42 U.S.C. 4001-4128; and 44 CFR 67.4(a).
These BFEs, together with the floodplain management, measures required by 44 CFR 60.3 of the program
regulations, are the minimum that are required. They should rot be construed to mean the community must
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their floodplain inanagement requirements. The
community may at any time enact stricter requirements on its own, or pursuant to policies established by
other Federal, State, or regional entities. These proposed and proposed modified BFEs are used to meet the
floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance
premium rates for new buildings built after the BFEs are made final, and for the contents in these buildings.
Pursuant to the provisions of 5 U.S.C. 605(b), the Director, Mitigation Division of the Emergency
Preparedness and Response Directorate, to whom authority has been delegated by the Secretary of the U.S.
Department of Homeland Security, hereby certifies that the proposed new or modified BFE determinations, if
promulgated, will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. A BFE
determination under Section 1363 forms the basis for new local ordinances, which, if adopted by a community,
will govern future construction within the floodplain area. By themselves, the BFE determinations impose
no restriction unless and until the community voluntarily adopts floodplain ordinances in accord with these
BFEs. Even if ordinances are adopted in compliance with Federal standards, the BFEs only prescribe building
height in the floodplain and do not prohibit development. Thus, this action only forms the basis for future local
actions. It imposes no new requirement; of itself, it has no economic impact,
Lessees and owners of real property in the community listed below are encouraged to review the Preliminary
FIS report, FIRM, and related materials at the Community Map Repository address cited in the table above and
to submit comments to the appropriate community CEOs at the address cited in the table above. The proposed
new or modified BFEs along flooding sources studied by detailed methods are shown on the Flood Profiles
included in the Preliminary copies of the FIS report. The flooding sources studied by detailed methods are as
follows:

Get Ready To Run,
Gainesville!
Gainesville, Florida, is a rare
town where on any day, at any
time, inany part of town you're
likely to see runners and walk-
ers. It's known as a running
town and a Well City U.S.A.
And finally, on Sunday, Febru-
ary 19, 2006, Gainesville will
have its own marathon. Orga-
nizers are looking for partici-
pants of all kinds walkers,
runners, volunteers, sponsors
and spirited well-wishers.
The Five Points of Life Mara-
thon and Half Marathon is co-
ordinated by the Gainesville
Sports Organizing Committee
and LifeSouth Community
Blood Centers and a host of
community volunteers who are
lending personal and profes-
sional expertise to launch a first-
class event that will make our
community proud. With already
more than 200 registrants from
13 states, the event is well on
track to reach a first-year goal


of 500 participants.
The Five Points of Life is a
national program organized by
Gainesville's blood center,
LifeSouth, to raise awareness of
the five ways we can share life
with others through donations of
blood, apheresis, cord blood,
marrow, and organ and tissue.
The marathon joins the Five
Points of Life bi-annual cross
country bike ride, both of which
allow for a visible demonstra-
tion of the health and vitality of
people who are donors and re-
cipients of lifesaving donations.
For Gainesville's Mark
McGriff, the marathon takes the
form of seeing a dream come to
life. McGriff was born and
raised in Gainesville. A gifted
athlete and former UF Football
player, McGriff ran his first
marathon in 1996 and has since
completed ten. When he heard
that -the blood center was con-
sidering organizing a marathon
as a fund-raiser and awareness-
raising event, McGriff contacted
LifeSouth to offer the support
and services of GSOC, where he

serves on the board of directors.
McGriff is uniquely tied to
the GSOC, LifeSouth and the
Five Points of Life. His father,
Perry, serves on LifeSouth's
board and was the inspiration
behind the creation of the Five
Points of Life and the bike ride.
Mark McGriff is a regular
blood and apheresis donor, is
listed on the National Marrow
Donor Program Registry, two of
his three sons donated their cord
blood at birth, and his grand-
father donated his tissues when
he passed away.
"Our family definitely has the
five points covered and my Dad
has completed three of the five
Five Points of Life rides and
participated in all of them,"
McGriff said. "I am not a cyclist
but as a runner I've always be-
lieved we need a marathon in
this town."
The marathon route takes
runners and walkers along 13.1
(half) or 26.2 (whole) miles,
traversing parts of the city and
the University of Florida.
Course coordinators took great
pains to include some of
Gainesville's best features in-
cluding the Duck Pond, 34th
Street Wall, historic downtown
Gainesville, and UF's Florida
Field where the course takes
runners around the perimeter of
the field. The event begins and
ends on Hull Road, across from
the Hilton University of Florida
Conference Center Gainesville
which serves as the host hotel.
Race Director Cate Boyett


encourages community in-
volvement, "This is an event
where everyone can have a role
regardless of age or fitness
level. We need people to staff
water stations, cheer runners on,
and serve as event volunteers
before and after race day. Mara-
thons are fun, challenging and
rewarding for competitors and
for people who are just pleased
to participate."
Online registration and
volunteer information is avail-
able at www.fivepoints
oflifemarathon.com.
Interested sponsors are asked
to contact Cate Boyett at (352)
224-1601.
The marathon is partially
supported through funds derived
from hotel/motel taxes gener-
ated by area visitors-and by the
Alachua County Visitors and
Convention Bureau. Sponsors to
date include CBS4, North Flor-
ida Regional Medical Center,
Chiron Corporation, Gainesville
Sports Organizing Committee,
SunTrust, Dominos Pizza,
SmoothJazz, The Star, Thunder

Florida Conference Center

EQUAL HOUSING
OPPORTUNfTY


Which House is Right for You?
Looking at houses can be
confusing. Grouping several in a
day can make the process even
more mind boggling. It is
important for you to look at each
house carefully. My goal is that
once you read this article, you will
be better prepared when looking at
the next home for your family.
- Taking notes is a good way to
keep houses straight. Writing
down the features that you like,
and the ones you dislike is good
information. The Realtor that you
are working with should have a
copy of the MLS sheet available.
This is a perfect place for note
taking, as the important
information about that specific
house is included.
- Along with taking notes, bring
your digital camera. Looking at
the house through your eyes is the
most important view. Marketing
photos ma. not embellish the
features that you are interested in,
and not the Realtor's view.
- Also, write down the feelings you
get while in the home. A number
of Buyer's have expressed to me
that they knew as soon as they
walked in the home, that it felt like
home. Imagine if you were
already living there, picture your
belongings, and decorations in the
home.
- Include any cosmetic changes
that you would like done to the
home. Also do not forget the
outside of the home, imagine the
landscaping you like, and see how
your tastes would work with the
architecture of the home.
- When you sit down to go over all
your notes, the pictures and the
feelings will help bring back to life
the overall experience you had
while in the home. This should aid
you in narrowing down your

L-f If I


lands in the Camp Blanding
Wildlife Management Area
lying south of SR 16 have been
closed by the Department of
Military Affairs. These lands,
needed for training exercises
and troop mobilization, are
under tight security that
prohibits recreational access
under the current hunting
format.
"This closure resulted in the
loss of all recreational access
to the south post," said Roland
Garcia, director of FWC's
North Central Region, based in
Lake City.
He said Camp Blanding and
FWC staffs have maintained
communications in an effort to
reopen the closed portions of
the area. In recent weeks, both
parties have hammered out a
concept that would reopen the
south post and restore deer-
dog hunting for the 2006-07
hunting season. The proposal
would require changes to rules
and hunting formats, including
locations of current still and
dog hunt areas and locations
where special quota hunts
would take place.
The proposal provides for
the same types and amount
of hunting days that currently
exist for still hunting, while
adding the deer-dog hunting
format back into the hunting
scheme.
"Camp Blanding is still
under heightened force
protection and will remain so
for the foreseeable future,"
Garcia said. "This makes it
unacceptable for the public
and their equipment (including
dogs) to encroach on sensitive
areas of the post, including the
artillery impact area and the
closed portion of the post that
lies south of SR 16 and west
of D Avenue. For this reason,
it is necessary to relocate the
deer-dog hunting area from its
previous location if we are to
proceed with the reopening of
the south post."
The proposal is to: Move the
deer-dog hunting north of SR
16; Recognize that deer-dog
hunting is a more efficient
harvest method than still
hunting. There is no impact
area on the north post to serve
as a "safe haven" for deer.
The deer herd Qn the north
post cannot withstand the
same 58-day hunting season
that currently exists with still
hunting. The proposal calls
for a season consisting of two
nine-day regular quotas for
deer-dog hunting on the north'
post; Move the still hunting
opportunities south of SR 16,
including the special archery
and muzzleloading gun quota
hunts; Allow locations and
rules for the "archery-only"
areas to remain unchanged;
Allow regular and special quota
numbers to remain the same:
200 for the muzzleloading gun,
400 for each general gun still
hunt and 320 for each general
gun dog hunt; Allow rules
regarding spring turkey season
and supervised youth hunts to
remain unchanged. However,
if this proposal is enacted,
these activities could be
considered for both the north
and south posts considering
that new and more restrictive
military regulations regarding
buffer areas surrounding
artillery impact areas are in
place. This change makes it
necessary to close portions
of the current walk-in area
adjacent to the artillery impact
area. This plan incorporates the
remaining walk-in portion into
the new still hunt area.
"This plan retains all of
the current still-hunting
opportunities, reinstates deer-
dog hunting, is acceptable
to FWC from a biological
perspective, is acceptable to
Camp Blanding from a security
perspective, and reopens the
south post," Garcia said. "We
are fast-tracking the process


for these changes so we can
provide the new format for
next hunting season. If this
proposal is not acceptable to
a significant portion of our
constituents, FWC will need
additional time to rework the
proposal." That would mean
that necessary changes would
not take place in time for
reopening the south post for
the 2006-07 hunting season.
"We hope the hunters who
want to use the area will
support this proposal. We
strongly believe this plan
is in the best interest of all
concerned parties, especially
the hunting community. We're
asking for public input on
the proposal. We will then
compile the public comments
and present them at an open
house at a date and location to
be determined. All comments
and suggestions received will
be used by staff to develop a
final recommendation," Garcia
said.
FWC staff will present an
overview of this proposal to
Commissioners at the Feb.
1-2 Commission meeting in
Gainesville.
"We plan to present staff's
final recommendation at the
April 5-6 Commission meeting
in Tallahassee. If changes are
adopted, they would become
effective July 1, 2006," Garcia
said.
Interested persons can submit
comments to Karen Parker,
regional public information
coordinator, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission, 3377 E. U.S.

FWC Asks Boaters
To Stay Alert;
Operation Slow
Speed To Help
Downed channel markers,
blown away speed zone signs,
and migrating manatees are
some of the hazards boaters may
face in the coming winter boat-
ing season. While removing
underwater navigational hazards
and replacing signs destroyed
by past hurricanes may take
months to correct, the speed
zones that those signs mark will
still be in effect.
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officers, assisted by
more than 30 local police ma-
rine units from around the state,
were out in force December 3
and 4 for Operation Slow Speed
to make sure winter boaters
know the rules. Just because a
speed zone sign is down,
doesn't mean boaters can ignore
the rules.
Deaths for Florida boaters are
nearing record highs. With one
month left in the year, FWC
officials are hoping this law
enforcement and educational
effort will keep boating safety
in the minds of all boaters.
Through November 12 of this
year, 72 boaters have died on
our waterways. In 2003, Florida
led the nation in boating deaths
with 64, and last year we had
68. Most of them were prevent-
able.
The FWC has keyed on three
core boating safety messages
this year: stay alert, wear your
life jacket and don't drink and
operate a boat. The agency says
keeping these messages in mind
dramatically decreases your
chances of getting into an acci-
dent and increases your chances
of survival if you do.


Off with your hat, as the flag
goes by! And let the heart have
its say; you're man enough for a
