Brittany Woods Is Crowned Queen In,
Chiefland Watermelon Festival
By Anna Wild
On Saturday, June 3, 2006
Chiefland hosted their 52nd
Annual Watermelon Festival.
The morning began calmly
enough but shortly after the
Watermelon Parade began the
skies opened up and rained
(quite hard at times). The
rain was bitter sweet since
we all know how much we
need the rain; it would have
been nice if the many parade
participants could ha e gotten
through these festivities without
getting soaked. The parade did
complete its run and the crowd
of onlookers stayed around,
many huddled under the tents
nearby trying to stay dry.
Sadly, the Watermelon
Contest Awards could not
be presented due to the rain,
thunder, and lightning. This
year there were 20 watermelons
submitted in the competition
Sand congratulations. go out to
the winners; 1st place with the
largest -individual watermelon
went to Harold Tillis with his 50
lb. Jubilee. 2nd place belonged
to Jonathan Hatch with his 37
lb. watermelon; and 3rd place
belonged to James Corbin

Gilchrist County Will Begin To
Enforce Sign Ordinance June 23
A Notice of this action is on Page Two of this edition
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission took action in their June
5th meeting to discuss, th sign
ordinance 05-02. .The four
member board. in the absence of
Chairman Trnnum\ Langfford,
decided to enforce the ordinance
and give the real estate compa-
nies, politicians and others that
put yard sign' on the right of
way, two neeks to move their
.signs. Beginning June 23, the
Gilchrist Count\ Road Depart-
ment has been directed to re-
move the signs from the right-
of-way. The signs can be picked
up at the Gilchrisn County Road
Department during regular busi-
Gilchrist County Adminis-
trator Ron. McQueen asked the
board ,for, direction after the
board took action in a previous
meeting to enforce the sign or-
dinance. When the road depart-
ment began to remove signs
from the right-bf-way, commis-
sioners contacted the Road De-
partment and had the action
stopped. The County Adminis-
trator following that_ action
wanted the board to make a de-
cision on whether they .wanted
the ordinance enforced.
The sign ordinance under
17.8.4, Placement standards, in
Right of Way, Supports for
signs or sign structures shall not
be placed in or upon a public
right of way or public easement,
except under the terms of a
lease betl een the owner of the
easement or right of way and
the. owner of the signs. The
paragraph also identifies that no
ground sign shall project over a
.public right of way.
The board in the discussion'
of the sign ordinance deter-
mined that real estate signs have
become the most visible signs
that are being placed on the
right of way.i
A road department spokes-
man explained that 17 signs
were identified at the intersec-
tion of SR 26 and CR 341 on
both the state and county right
of way. "The signs appear to
make a cluster around a stop
sign at an intersection," Justin
Watson, Gilchrist County Road
"If you start making excep-
tions to this ordinance now, you
are going to have the same
problem as you are currently
having," Commissioner Randy:
"If we are going to enforce
this, the board should give no-
tice to the o ners of the signs to
allow them time to move .them,
from the right of way," Com-
' missioner Mitchell Gentry ex-
"In a matter of constitutional
law, the county must be consis-
tent in their action involving all
of the signs," Gilchrist County
attorney John McPherson ad-
vised the board.
McPherson explained to the
board that the county has juris-
diction on a state, highway right
of way involving the removal of
signs that don't: belong to the.

One of the points that came
out of a recent talk I gave was
that there seems to be an up-
welling of demand for foreign
investments. If you are going to
invest in foreign companies, one
of the easiest, safest and most
efficient ways of doing so is to
purchase American Depositary
The shares of most .foreign
companies that trade in the U.S.
markets are traded as ADRs.
Issued by certain banks, each
ADR represents one, or more
shares of a foreign stock,' or pos-
sibly a fraction of a share. More
importantly, companies issuing,
ADRs are required to provide'
financial statements that meet
our GAAP standards.
If you own an,ADR, you have
the right 'to obtain the foreign
stock it represents. Howev er, for
the most part investors usually
find it more convenient to sim-
pl\ own the ADR The price of
an ADR corresponds to the price
of the foreign stock in its home
market, adjusted for the number
of foreign shares that the par-
ticular ADR represents.
One ofinmy favorite companies
issuing ADRs is No artist. The
company's prescription drugs
include treatments for nervous
system and ophthalmic disor-
ders, cardiovascular diseases.
and cancer. Its Sandoz subsid-
iary deals in generics and pro-
duces finished dosage products
as well as active pharmaceutical
ingredients for other producers
of generic drugs.
Novartis' consumer health
unit includes, such brands as
Ex-Lax, Maalox, and Theraflu.
Novartis is also the proud parent
of the Gerber baby. Its CIBA Vi-
siondivision manufacturers e.ei
drops, contact lens products. Its
animal health unit offers parasite
control products (Sentinel) and
pharmaceuticals for pets and

Novartis net sales increased

able to the dynamic growth in

Gay Marriage Debate
The headlines announce the coming debate in
our government to what constitutes a marriage. The
homosexual agenda has now been, placed before the
governing bodies of law to determine what defines
marriage. To debate an issue is to contend in words or
arguments about truth between persons of different
opinions, each endeavoring to prove his own opinion
right. To debate the truth of marriage is to debate the
truth whether the Sun rises in the East and sets in the
West. Marriage has always been and will always be a
union of a man and a woman. ,
Marriage is not defined by the lustful desires, of
a perverted community who want to find a place of
acceptance in the world. The homosexual agenda has
taken a minority of acceptance and forced their
tainted lifestyle upon the majority. Homosexuality is
a perverted form of what God has created in nature.
"Marriage is honorable: in all, and the bed
undefiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God
will judge" (Hebrews 13:4). The honor of marriage is
one man and one woman.
What is there to debate about the union of a man
and a woman? The joining of a man and a woman
serves to fulfill the natural design of humankind. Paul
declared in 1 Corinthians 7:1-5: "Now 'concerning
the matters about which you wrote. It is well for a
man not to touch a woman. But because of the
temptation to immorality, each man should have his
own wife and each woman her own husband. The
husband should give to his wife her conjugal rights,
and likewise the wife to'her husband. For the wife
does not rule over her own body, but the husband
does; likewise the husband does not rule over his
own body, but the wife does. Do not refuse one
another except perhaps by agreement for a season,
that you may devote yourselves to prayer; but then
come together again, lest Satan tempt you through',
lack of self-control" (1 Corinthians 7:1-5).
Marriage is defined as a man and a woman. The
design of the body serves the purpose of fulfilling the
role of benevolence and the conjugal rights
prescribed by Jehovah. This cannot be done in the
perversion of homosexuality. "For this cause God
gave them up unto vile affections: for even their
women did change the natural use into that which is
against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving
the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust
one toward another; men with men Working that,
which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that
recompense of their error which was meet"
Marriage is a natural union of a man and a
woman. Homosexuality is an unnatural union of the
male or female to the same, which is against nature.
Who established the natural world but Jehovah God?
Children are born from the union of a man and a
woman and man can never change that. Homosexuals
deny the manner they were created the union of a
man and woman. Homosexuality serves only a
purpose of perverted sexual desires resulting in the
penalty for their perversion.
The law of marriage was ordained by God in
Genesis 2:18 "And the Lord God said, 'It is not
good that the man should be alone; I will make him
a helpmate for him.'" That helpmate was a woman,
formed from the rib of man "And the rib, which
the Lord God had taken from man, made he a
woman, and brought her unto the man" (Genesis
2:22). What is there to debate? Truth is God's design!
Marriage is God's design!

Letter, To The Editor
: Another school yearha's ended
and with it my son's information
of some of the changes at Bell
High School. During our dis-
cussion, I learned that the Bell
High School principal, Buddy
Schofield, %%ill be'leavihg for
Dixie County High School. I'm
sure I'm in the minority, but I
will miss him.
My sons have been a part of
the Gilchrist County School
system for 18 years and Mr.
Schofield has been a large part
of those years as a vice-principal
and principal. I have watched
him grow from a rigid, uncom-
promising man to someone, who
two years ago, recognized toilet
papering of the school as a harm-
less senior prank. Whenever I
had concerns with my sons or the
school, I always knew his door
was open. He would listen and
we would come to a resolution.
It may not have always been the
one I wanted, but I was given the.
opportunity to be heard. So to-
day, Mr. Schofield, I want to say
thank you and wish you the best.
Gilchrist County's loss will be
Dixie County's gain.
As my son Sean and I dis-
cussed the impending changes
at Bell High School, .1 had tod
laugh at his analysis of our
current school system. He said
"'lMom, it's that time 'of the Near
when all the administrators and
teachers gather at the steps of the
courthouse to spin the job wheel
of fortune to find out what they
will be doing and where 'they'
will be next year.", Ahh, out of
the mouths of babes!
They say change is good, but
I question some that have been
made over the past year in this
district. Our current concern
now should be with the fall
elections. How many registered
Voters will remember their lack,
of %oice at school board meet-
ings %when they key in their
vote? How man\ registered
voters \ ill eten take advantage
of their right to %ote due to apa-
thy? How many new voters will
not register and tote due to their
disgus, with the sNstem?
How many of our county resi-
dents will attend the candidates,
forums and question 'the posi-
tions of our candidates? A better
question we should ask! "How
many of our school board candi-
dates will answer truthfully and
have the, backbone to disagree
with -rubber-stamped agendas
and represent their constituency.
Until the residents of this
county speak up and changes are
Made, I'm afraid my son's vision

Springhouse Quilters News
S---- i I -
Springhouse quilters will be
hosting the advanced group of
4-H young women this week for
a sewing-quilting camp. The
young women will be making
a 6-hour quilt during the week
plus other projects. The quilt is
made similar to a log cabin quilt
pattern but is much larger in size
than the traditional log cabin
block. The 4-H members will
b le to make the quilt the ac-
tual size they want. Even though
this is called a 6-hour quilt, it
will take most of the week to
piece and assemble the quilt.
Elaine Faison is serving as the
coordinator for the 4-H sewing
camp. Elaine retired from the
Extension Ofice 4-H program at
the end of 2005 and joined the
Springhouse quilters. She has
become very active in quilting
and is excited to be the leader of
the 4-H sewing camp.
4-H members who are inter-
ested in learning to sew' and quilt
still have time to sign up for the
beginning camp which will be
held the' 3rd week of June. To
sign up, interested 4-H members
should contact the County Ex-
tension Office in Trenton.

Springhouse Quilters, please

formed a flute duet of "Kirk-

,"Block M March," "Old Scot-
tish Medley," "Fortress," "Trail

"Rumble on the High Plains."
.This piece showcased a combi-
nation of drums, vocals; finger

,experiencing a thunderstorm or
train rumbling across the plains
of the Nlid est. ". .
, Band director. Todd Eckstein,
then presented spring bouquets
to Iris Roberts. his wife and his
mother, who had flown in from

line ended and with a cue from
drum major, Stephanie Deane,
the entire group yelled "POW-
ERHOUSE" and marched in
filling the aisles and the back of
the auditorium. The seventh and,
eighth grades took a knee as the
high school band 'played "Bo-
hemian Rhapsody." Then they
all performed the grand finale

Sponsored by the Uhiversity
of Florida College of Dentistry
and 'the Duval County Health
Department, the focus of "Oral
Cancer: It Spreads Faster Than

awareness of this deadly disease
its signs, causes and prevention
and to encourage regular oral
cancer exams to increase earls
Oral-cancer is the fourth most
common cancer in black- men
and the seventh most common
in white men. It strikes nearly
30,000 Americans each year and'
,'proves fatal for more than 7,000
people annually. Yet nearly 90
percent of those whose oral
cancer is detected early will.
The campaign, %which targets
area residents-because of North-
east Florida's disproportionate
burden of new oral cancer cases
and deaths, will include public
.service announcements on Jack-
sonville radio stations WSOL-
FM and WJBT-FM. The early
diagnosis message w ill also be

years after diagnosis.
Compare that to a 20 percent,

are diagnosed at a late stage. ,
That's why the "Oral Cancer: It

campaign seeks to drill home'the.'
message of early and frequent;

The oral. cancer exam is a

performed by a dentist. It in-

One of the most frequent
questions I get asked is,
"How 'much is property
worth in Gilchrist County".
I would like to tell you
that the answer to that
question is simple. It is not
simple, and sometimes
almost impossible to
Property values have a
multitude of variables. One
factor that affects property
value is location. Being on
a paved road for instance
adds significant salue.
Another factor is what is
on the land itself. A piece
of land that is mostly
established pasture with
granddaddy oaks is more
valuable than a similar
parcel that is planted in
The size of the land is a
variable that is very
important. In most cases,,
smaller parcels bring a
higher per acre price than
larger ones. Based on
recent sales, the average of
10 acre parcels range from
$11,000 to $15,000.00 per
acre. On the other hand, 5
acre parcels are averaging a
-slightly higher $12,000 to
$16,000 per acre.

finding out the value of
your property, call me today

Hook Kids Fishing
(Continued from Page One)
By Rayanne Ferguson
This Suwannee River Shrine
Club "Gold Hook Award"'
Kids Fishing 'Tournament had
to be one for the record. -If
you were anywhere near the
river on Saturday around
10:00 a.m., you understand
completely. Thunder, lightning
and a lot of rain were the only
things you could see at a glance,
out across the water. Our young
fishers and their partners were so
dedicated or determined to catch
a fish that they were in and out
hiding under trees, running to
their truck or wrapping in a tow-
el. Everyone knew that in just'
a minute this shower would pass
and they could all get back to the
r, minll cjio i-i. p Jlu a ;jj t( K ,
Well weren't we all surprised,
it was still raining after all boats
%were- loaded and continued to
rain during weigh in.
When Noble Sam Ferguson,
Tournament Chairman passed
away in April 2006, Noble,
Lloyd Landrum stepped up and
volunteered to make sure this
tournament would take place as
if we never skipped a beat. With
added helping hands from Noble
Bobby Heath, SRSC Treasurer.
they did exactly that. I will for-
ever be grateful to these two men
as well as many other Nobles of
the club and their ladies for malk-
ing this tournament the Shriners
next best. Sam would have
been so pleased. There is pride
shown through the eyes of the
Suwannee River Shrine Nobles
each year as they collect dona-
tions in this fund-raiser for The,
Shrine Children Hospitals for
crippled and burned children.
ages birth through 18 years old.
This fund-raiser will total over
$12,000.00 and all profit-. will be.
sent directly to the hospital fund.
This could not take place each
year without the support from
businesses, other organizations-
and individuals throughout Bell.
Bronson, Chiefland. Cross City,
Gainesville. Old Town. Trenton
As every year in the past;
Florida Wildlife Commission
joined us again for this event.
They assist to insure eersone
that all rules and regulations are
followed throughout the weigh-
in of so many fish. Noble Lloyd
stepped back and allowed Jor-
dan Hilliard iSam's nephew) of
Bell to stand in his uncles place
to assist Officer Jeff Swan of
FWC and Noble President Glen
Mitchell weigh almost 300 lbs
of pure fish. Again. Thank yoiu
Noble Lloyd. The fish weighed
an, where from 1 oz to 71bs-7oz.
It was very interesting to
watch weigh-in. These three
men would fight with the larg-
est. and chase the smallest on-
their knees in the rain making
sure that every slimy fish made
it to the scale. Our young fishers
stood by very patiently wiping
the rain to see the scale as it
would total their catch 'and then
step back to ask just toi make
sure that was right. Then they
would quickly run down the
bank to release their catch. The
river didn't lose much this year
because most bass and bream
were returned to the beautiful
Suwannee.: How cool is that?
Every child with their parents
holding cameras -waited in the
rain for all calculations because,
following that would be the pre-
sentation of that big trophy on
display and someone %would get
to take home a brand new (still
in the bo\,) trolling motor.
Chief Raban-Noble Bill
Rouse (entered his grandson in
tournament). Assistant Raban-
Noble Tom Lumpkin and 2nd
Ceremonial Master-Noble Luke
Baker (entered his daughter in
the tournament) came in from
Jackson\ille to participate in.
the tournament and assist in
presenting the awards. A Zebco
202 rod-n-reel. with tackle and
a participant's trophy was pre-
sented to each youngg participant
as well as the additional trophies
listed in this article.
As the tournament ended and
nmy eyes filled %w ith tears of miss-
ing Sam the rain quickly washed
them away as a smile came to
life realizing with everyone's
help I had assisted in finishing
one of Sam's many projects/
activities. Sam's heart was al-
ways with the kids, whether it
be collecting donations, working
a fund-raiser, buying Christmas
gifts, having parties. visitingg
them in their home or meeting
them for the first time to fill-out
that initial application to become
a shrine child. Whatever the
reason, Sam believed he wore a,
fez and became a SHRINER to
do just that!
I thank you all for allowing
me the opportunity to be apart
of Sam's last fishing tournament
and for making it OUR BEST

Leads To Summer
The drought conditions that.
have plagued our state for the-
last several weeks have affected
our homes, businesses and daily
lives in many ways, the most
notable being increased wildfire
activity, particularly along the
1-95 corridor in East Central
Florida. This dry weather is
ultimately rooted in the climate
patterns that develop over sev-
eral months stretching from the
Pacific Ocean to the Sunshine
State. Climatologists monitor
weather trends and the state of
the Pacific Ocean and are able
to predict seasonal climate pat-
terns up to several months in
While it is impossible to pre-
dict exactly when the summer
rains will come, climatologists
examine historical patterns and
current weather conditions to
project the probability that those
weather changes may occur. Cli-
matoligical studies are not taken
lightly, and many in the field
spend considerable time pro-
viding forecast infonnation re-
sources to our local officials, fire
personnel, farmers, and citizens.
Our data is drawn from weather
monitoring facilities located
throughout our state, reported in
real-time to climate and weather
30 Years Service to the
analysts who can make changes
. and updates to their analysis.
Historically, Florida has al-
ways been noted for warm, dry
winters that lead to wet sum-'
mers. As residents of this beau-
tiful state, we are well aware
that our warm winters provide
incredible weather conditions
while our neighbors to the north
freeze, and our summers produce
rains that generate lush plant life
for our homes and farms.
Examining our seasons from a
multitude of factors is paramount
to climatologists. Among these
factors, the surface temperature
of the tropical Pacific Ocean has
the strongest and most identifi-
able influence on Florida's sea-
sonal climate patterns. El Niflo
refers to warmer than normal
Pacific Ocean temperatures and
is well-known for bringing copi-
ous rainfall and cooler tempera-
tures to the state in the winter
and spring seasons. La Nifia
refers to colder than normal
sea surface temperatures in the
same region and corresponds to
warmer and relatively dry winter
and spring seasons. Neutral re-
fers to the ocean state when sea
surface temperatures are close
to normal. We have recently
tranisitioned from a period of La
Nifia, which was primarily re-
sponsible for the dry conditions
the state experienced the last
few months, to Neutral, which
normalizes weather in the sum-
mer with warm temperatures and
increased moisture. As we move
towards the summer months, we
can all expect the weather to
reflect the hot and humid condi-
tions we have grown to love.
A closer examination of
Florida's current climate reveals
that the Neutral phase we are
currently under also corresponds
to variable temperatures and
rainfall patterns that average out
closer to normal over the course
of the summer season. The after-
noon rains we are so accustomed
to sometimes take the form of
frequent thundershowers, which
typically begin later this month
or early June and increase int
frequency as the summer pro-
The current analysis indicates
that there is nothing prevent-
ing seasonal thundershowers
from arriving on. time and in
adequate amounts. For example,
over the last 10 years, Florida's
precipitation from May to J une
has increased every.year, almost
seven inches last year alone.
"Nonnals." the short name for
the 30-year average, lists pre-
cipitation averages historically
increasing from 3.74 to 7,35
inches from May to June. Last
year alone, rainfall increased
from 4.19 to 11.75 inches from
May to June. While historical
trends may vary, this analysis
clearly projects improvement in
rainfall during this dry period.
-It should be reiterated that the
timing of exact weather changes
is difficult to ascertain, but what
should bring comfort to us as
Floridians is that our climate,
our long term weather history,
is steeped in a pattern of dry
winters and rain filled summers.
Those projected rains will hope-
fully bring relief to Florida's
