Afternoon While Tubing At Ginnie Springs


Two friends that were visit-
ing Ginnie Springs in the North
Gilchrist County area on Satur-
day were tubing in a shallow
spring run when one man
drifted into deeper water. The
friend, Raghava R. Pullela, 31,
was reported to have left his
tube to try to help his friend and
found that he was unable to
stand up any longer. At that
time he went under and no one
could reach the man before it
was too late, Gilchrist County


Sheriffs Office reported.
The accident occurred at
4:52 p.m. Gilchrist County
Emergency Communications
dispatched Spring Ridge Fire
Department, Station 3, to the
Ginnie Springs Park. A fire-
rescue spokesman reported that
when'he arrived on the scene,
Ginnie Springs' staff members
had assisted swimmers to pull
one man, Suman K. Kairagadda,
27, from the waters and had
begun giving CPR to this indi-


vidual. Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Medical Service arrived
on the scene with two units. The
professional emergency person-
nel took over and continued to
treat the victim. A Gilchrist
Counts EMS unit transported
the \ ictim to North Florida Re-
gional Hospital where he was
listed in stable condition.
The Sheriff's Office reported
that other friends and family
members of the two men were
on land in the immediate area,


but could not swim. Upon see-
ing the two men struggling,
fighting to stay above the water,
they began frantically shouting
for swimmers in the area to help
them. People that responded to
their call for help. pulled Katra-
gadda to safety, but were un-
aware that the friend had gone
unrder\jter Pullela Jas later
found and brought ashore where
he was pronounced dead at the
scene.


Gilchrist Public Safety Director Assures

Town Council That Emergency Operations

Center Near Bell Is On Track For

Construction


Bell To Participate In
Gilchrist Fire Special
Assessment
By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council de-
termined in their Thursday,
August 3 meeting that the mu-
nicipality would become in-
volved in the Gilchrist County
Fire Assessment Program in
2006-07. Rob Willis, Gilchrist
County Public Service Director,
asked the Council to participate
in the Fire Assessment Program.
He explained that the new Gil-
christ County Emergency Op-
erations Center would have a
location to house fire service,
emergency operations and
emergency medical service.
"The new complex that is ex-


pected to begin construction
within 60 days, is moving for-
ward, going well, in spite of the
work that is being done by the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice and the PBA," Willis ex-
plained to the council.' Coun-
cilman Ray: Sanders asked Mr.
Willis 'if the Sheriff's Office
would have a satellite station in
the new Emergency Operation
Center north of Bell? "A sub
station office was offered to the
Sheriff," explained Willis.
Councilman Ray Sanders
thanked Robert Willis in this
meeting for all of the hard work
he has done with Gilchrist
County to bring this new opera-
tion center to the Bell area.
In 2005-06, the Town of Bell
opted out of the Gilchrist


County Fire Assessment Pro-
gram. This action cost the Town
of Bell an estimated $13,000.
By the municipality not being
involved in the fire assessment
program, Gilchrist County
charged the Town of Bell
19,000 to provide fire service to
the town. Gilchrist County gave
the Town of Bell a $6,000 credit
in lieu of the use of their fire
station, equipment and other
needs that were used by the
county to provide fire service to
this area.
"I think it is very important
for Town of Bell to be a part of
this. Fire Program," explained
Dan Cavanah, Bell Town Man-
ager. Rob Willis explained that
Station No. 1 would be located
near Bell and would be involved


in three other county fire sta-
tions. Gilchrist County also has
interlocal agreements with the
Trenton Fire Department and
the Fanning Springs Fire De-
partment.
Rob Willi,;\plained the fee
schedule that would be used for
the businesses and residents in
the Town of Bell. The residents
would' be charged an $80.00
annual fee and the 'businesses
would pay in accordance to the
size of their facility, he ex-.
plained.
Bell Commissioner Tammy
Jones made a motion for the
Town of Bell to be involved in
the program. Commissioner
Tom Brown gave a second to
the motion before the board
voted 4-0 in favor of the action.


Two Bell Residents Are Seriously

Injured In Vehicle Accident

Monday Afternoon On CR 138


Two Bell, residents were
traveling in the area of CR 138
and NW 5" Avenue Monday
afternoon when they collided
into one another at the intersec-
tion 5 miles North of Bell at
2:30 p.m.
Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported thht Sean Horton Sasser,
18, of Bell was driving a 1997
Honda 4-door sedan south on
NW.5"' Avenue approaching a
stop sign. Dennis M Schultz.
47, of Bell was driving a 1986
Jeep SUV westbound on CR


138. After Sasser reached the,
intersection, he. was attempting
to make a left turn, east onto CR
138, when he drove into the
path of Schultz. The driver of
the Jeep was reported to have
swerved to the left in an attempt
to avoid a collision. The left
front of the Jeep collided with.
the left side of the Honda Fol-
lowing the collision, the vehicle
driven by Sasser traveled onto
the south shoulder of CR 138
where it struck a tree. The Jeep
came to rest partially in the
eastbound lane and on the south


shoulder of CR 138.
-Gilchrist County EMS re-
sponded to the scene and re-
quested Shands Cair helicopter
to transport the two victims to
an area hospital for emergency
treatment.
Florida Highway Patrol
Trooper W. S. Slade reported
that Sean Horton Sasser has
been charged with Violation of
Right of Way involving this
accident. Dennis Schultz has
been charged with Driving
while License Suspended.


V.E. Whitehurst & Sons To Pave

CR-339 To County Line


The Gilchrist County Com-
mission took action to accept
the low bid of V.E. Whitehurst
& Sons Construction Compan.
of Williston on the 2.2-mile
paving of CR 339 from Trenton
south to the Levy County line.
Gilihrist County Engineer
Lee Mills reported to the board
during their August 7 meeting
that three construction compa-
nies submitted bids on this pro-
ject. The bids were: John C.
Hipp Construction Company of
Alachua for $428,689.22; An-
derson Columbia Construction
of Lake City $384,767.14; and
V.E. Whitehurst & Sons


$283,340.00.
.Mills explained that the big
difference in the bids is due to
the prices that were estimated
for asphalt. Some of the compa-
nies placed an estimated price
increase on asphalt that was
reported to be over one hundred
dollars a ton. The engineer ex-
plained that the asphalt pricing
is due to the petroleum basis
that is used to manufacture the
product that is essential to the
paving of the highway.
"I don't think completing
this job within budget will be a
problem, but the difference in
prices is evident," Mills told the


board. V. E. Whitehurst is ready
to go to work on this job by next
week, Mills explained. The en-
gineer explained to the. board
after the award of the bid that
Whitehurst had estimated the
cost of asphalt for this job to be
*82 00 a ton
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den tnade a motion to accept the
low bid of V.E. Whitehurst &
Sons Construction Company of
Williston for $283,340.00.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
gave a second to the motion
before the board approved the
action with a 5-0 vote.

Gainey's
Farm Fresh Produce
Year round regulars at.farm-
ers markets throughout the area,
Maurice and Gertie Gainey of
Gainey's Farm Fresh Produce,
live the tradition of the "family
farm." Maurice, originally from
Ormond Beach, and Gertie,
from .Daytona, have been farm-
ing on 10 acres of family land in
Monteocha since 1991. "I never
thought I'd be farming," said
Maurice. Sure, he'd visited his
Grandaddy's farm on weekends
throughout his childhood, but he
built a career in sales in the gar-
ment industry.
His life changed when his
"cousins who were raised on the
farm all left after Granddaddy
died." Maurice and Gertie came
back to the farm, and built up a
solid reputation, growing a va-
riety of produce: greens, okra,
squash,.peas, sweet potatoes,
watermelons and cantaloupes
in the spring, and beets, celery,
cauliflower, squash and corn
in the fall. Their stand always
looks colorful and tempting -

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Just last week I was looking
through the local daily paper
when I picked up on an article
identifying Dixie County's
Shired Island as an area that has
some of the diriest water in the
State of Florida.
I read on to see just what the
health experts with the National
Resource Defense Council and
the Florida Department of
Health has determined as what
made these marsh waters so
filthy. I was very surprised
when I read that animal waste
was identified as a contributing
factor for all of this nastiness. I
later talked with Wesley Asbell,
the Environmental Health
Director for Dixie and Gilchrist
counties. He explained that
there are many possible
contributing factors that cause
the water sample test to be
identified as very high in
bacteria contamination.
I have been to Shired Island
many times, as a child and since
as an adult. I have caught fish,
eaten fish and enjoyed many
beautiful sunsets from this area
of Dixie County, but somehow I-
just can't quite understand that
animal waste is the identified


reason why the water is as dirty
as they say it is.
1 can remember years ago
when the environmental test
records reported the water
around the mouth of the
Suwannee River to be some of
the highest recorded in bacteria
along the coast of the Big Bend.
At that time the small coastal
fishing community of Suwannee
did not have a sanitary sewage
treatment facility to treat the
200-300 homes that are located
on the banks of the Suwannee
River and on the coastal
marshes within view of the Gulf
of Mexico.

Since the sewer treatment
plant has been constructed and
in operation, it seems that the
quality of water in this area has
improved. I know the fish seem
to be plentiful, and I think they
can sense dirty watery much
better than a fisherman.


I feel that time will tell and
the environmental professionals
will determine that with the
growth that is coming to the
coastal areas, so comes the
higher -concentration of nitrates
as well as many other problems
associated with "population
growth.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
This week we are going to take
another look at two companies
that were discussed here a year
ago. Both companies are in the
offshore oil drilling business and
are currently chalking up profits
at an unprecedented rate.
Why are profits so high?
Simply because land wells are
being played out and with the
demand for oil expanding at an
unprecedented rate, drilling off-
shore is the only alternative. As
a result, day rates (the negotiated
usage price per day) for drilling
platforms is skyrocketing as ever
higher oil prices drive demand
for rigs and drilling equipment.
Yet there is also a strong warn-
ing label accompanying these se-
lections. Due to the nature of the
business, profits in the offshore
oil drilling business are volatile
and that volatility can carry over
into the share prices of the rig
companies as well.
Therefore, you should inves-
tigate both companies carefully
and not be blinded by their most
recent performance or the rather
dramatic intrinsic value of their
shares. Furthermore, because we
are analyzing two companies,
space constraints require that the
financial background of both be
kept to a minimum.
First up is Transocean. A year
ago, the, shares were trading
at a five-year high of $58.84.
Last week the shares closed at
$78.68, for an annual gain of 34
percent. Last week, the company
announced earnings of 42 cents
after one-time gains. Looking at
the intrinsic value of the shares,
a discounted earnings model
yields a result of $196 per share.
The more conservative free
cash flow to the firm approach
produces- an intrinsic' value of
$147 per share. The shares have
a multiple or P/E of 32, which is
not cheap but given the compa-
ny's performance is reasonable.
My fiscal year 2006 earnings
estimate for Transocean is $3.45
per share before one-time gains
or losses. Hence, in about six
months the shares have the po-
tential to be trading at about $98
level.
Noble is up next. A year ago
when I discussed its merits, the
shares were trading at $69.70,
as compared to last week's close
of $72.30. While the 3.7 percent
annual gain in share price is not
as high as that of Transocean,
Noble's earnings are superb.
According to the company
its profits more than doubled
during the second quarter, com-
ing in at $1.30 per share, as.
compared with 53 cents a year
ago. Furthermore, Noble is only

By Cindy Jo Avers
Several people over the last
couple of weeks have asked me
for my Palm Salad recipe. The
Southern Sisters made this salad
and. it was served for our
daughter, Carrie's wedding
back in July. Now Palm Salads
and I go way back, way back to
the time that I was in high
school in Cedar Key. Most all
the young people on the island
in those days worked at the
various restaurants around
town. I worked at Castell's
Restaurant as a salad maker. I
can't even begin to count the
Palm Salads I made on Friday
nights.
The heart of palm used in the
traditional palm salad served in
this area of Florida come from
the heart of the Sable Palm,
which is in fact our state tree.
This same hearts of palm is
affectionately known as swamp
cabbage to this area's natives. It
is without a doubt one of our
most loved "Cracker" dishes.
We generally cook it with just a
little water and a lot of bacon
with a heap of black pepper
until it becomes tender. Pretty
much all of us grew up eating
swamp cabbage and if we were
really lucky we had fried mullet
to go along with it. Years ago
my father would clean the
mullet gizzards from fresh
mullet he had caught. He spent
many happy hours fishing from
his birddog, boat using (heaven
forbid) a net. Anyway, daddy
knew I loved those gizzards and
would gladly clean them for me.
My mother cooked the best
fried mullet and gizzards that
I've ever eaten anywhere.
Anyway back to the cabbage,
pioneer families came to Florida
long before it was a state. In
fact the first families who came


nominally exposed to domestic
natural gas prices as 68 percent
of its revenue for 2007 and 34
percent of its 2008 revenue is
already, contracted for.
'' A diScounted earnings model
yields. an intrinsic value for No-
ble of $281 per share, while the
free,cash flow to the firm model
produces an intrinsic value of
$168 per share. My earnings
estimate for Noble for this fiscal
year is $5.40 per share. At the
current multiple or P/E of 20,
the shares have a potential price
target of $106, for a gain of 46
percent over the next six to eight
months.
While all the numbers above
look enticing, please heed my
earlier warning. Energy shares
can be volatile in general and
those of offshore oil drilling
have the potential for being par-
ticularly volatile.

here found nothing but a wild
wilderness. They traveled here
in wagons and on foot mostly
from Georgia and Alabama.
Along the way they relied on
swamp cabbage as a food
source. Years later the
descendents of those families
who first settled here continued
to eat swamp cabbage. During
the great depression many
families ate cabbage regularly
because it was free and
plentiful.
It turns out that those cracker
families were on to something
because Swamp Cabbage is
loaded with vitamin A and
vitamin C. It also contains
calcium and iron.
Many believe that Palm Salad
originated at the Island Hotel in
Cedar Key..In the late 1940s
Ms. Bessie Gibbs the owner
developed a recipe similar to the
one that is printed below with
the exception that she didn't
freeze the dressing once made.
There are many versions of the
recipe; some call for the use of
sherbet instead of ice cream. I
have included the recipe that I
make today which is pretty
close to the one used years ago
at Castell's Restaurant.

(Make dressing first and freeze
until firm)
2 cups of fresh (raw) heart of
palm, sliced thin
Iceberg lettuce, shredded
1 can pineapple chunks packed
in pineapple juice
I can sliced peaches
Chopped sigared dates
Crystallized ginger
In individual salad bowls or
plates put about 1 / cups of
shredded lettuce, next sprinkle
about i cup of palm over
lettuce. Place three peach slices
on top of palm. Next add 5 or 6
pineapple chunks. Then sprinkle
a tablespoon of chopped dates
and about V2 teaspoon of minced
crystallized ginger over the top.
Finish salad by adding one ice
cream scoop of frozen dressing
in the center of the salad. Serve
salad quick before dressing
melts.

3 cups vanilla ice cream
1 tablespoon peanut butter
1/3 cup pineapple juice
Green food coloring
Mix ice cream, peanut butter,
and pineapple juice. Then add
about 1 drop of green food
coloring. This dressing should
be light green in color. Freeze
dressing until firm before using.
I usually make my dressing the

day before.
Note: Crystalized ginger is
hard to find this time of year. I
usually find it around Christmas
time. You can buy it then and it


To the Citizens of Gilchrist
County:
I would first like to take this
opportunity to thank you for
allowing me to serve you as
the Gilchrist County Property
Appraiser. My staff and I work
hard to accommodate the needs
of our citizens while abiding by
the statutes set forth by the State
of Florida Department of Reve-
nue. It is not hard to see that our
cherished small rural commu-
nity is undergoing some major
changes. As you drive through
our county, I don't think you can
drive one mile in any direction
without seeing a For Sale sign.
Many of you are aware that
the values of Gilchrist County
property have more than tripled
in the past 24 months. This, of
course, leads to higher property
assessments which in turn cause
higher property taxes. The tax
roll that is prepared in our office
funds the Gilchrist County Com-
mission and is then disbursed
to all of the different offices
and officials. When assessing
properties, our office must abide
by Statute 193.011. Nine factors
are considered when assess-


will last for about a year. If you
are unable to find it you can
make this salad without it.


Correction
In an article that was
published in the August 3, 2006
edition headlined, Trenton
Proposes Tax Increase, the
Gilchrist County Journal did not
publish that Trenton Mayor Pete
Randolph also does not use the
insurance that is provided to the
Trenton City Commission. The
Journal regrets that this
information was not published.

didn't think the funding could

The City of Trenton awarded
the contract to Jimmie's Haul-

What People Live For
(Kent Heaton)

Humanity is a diversity of people finding their ears unto their supplication: But the face of the
own way in a world filled with the day to day grind Lord is upon them that do evil" (1 Peter 3:10-12;
of survival. From birth to death people live with- Psalm .34:12-16). Peter illustrates that life is about


values that shape their lives with certain
characteristics and personalities derived from a need
to find fulfillment in their own mind. Happiness is
found in what gives them pleasure. Contentment
ranges from the extreme of wasteful living to a
sedated life of complacency. Drugs offer an escape
for some; alcohol soothes the minds of many;
immorality heightens the need for pleasure; wisdom
drives the motives of seekers of knowledge; futility
,fills the lives of those who are hopeless. Life is seen
in the eyes of all those who pass by and leave a ripple
of their lives upon our shores.
Death is the microscope that intrudes upon the
lives of those who live to themselves. In times of
mourning and grief, life is focused upon the reality of
what is important yet fleeting in the forgotten
memories of days passed by. Times of hardship bring
to focus the microscopic truth of life's uncertainty
and death's finality. Souls parade before God with no
concern of an eternal destiny believing the lie of
Satan that life is all there is and all there is in life is
living for the moment. The Deceiver knows the Truth
yet fails to acknowledge this to those he enslaves..
The masses of humanity flow endlessly through the
tunnel of lies as they live for pleasure without a
single concern for the real meaning of life ending in
an eternal destruction.
Peter quoted the Psalmist King when he wrote:
"He that would love life, and see good days, let him
refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they
speak no guile: And let him turn away from evil,
and do good; let him seek peace, and pursue it. For
the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous, and his


choices and those decisions will bring true happiness
in this life and the life that is to come or they will
bring an eternity of regret. Humanity must see a
moral code established by the Creator as the only
measure of life worth living.
People live for themselves and their own desires.
Jehovah can never have a part of their lives because
there are restrictions and admonitions that must be
followed. Man's free will creates a free spirit of
dependence upon his own desires of fleshly pleasure,
pride and wisdom of self. The commandments given
by God are protective in nature for man's happiness
here and in the world to come. "Godliness is
profitable for all things, having promise of the life
which now is, and of that which is to come" (1
Timothy 4:8).
Those who come to God must give up self and
selfish motives. Serving the Lord requires the
emptying of arrogant pride to seek the will of the
Lord alone. The rich man of Matthew 19 wanted
eternal life but not at the cost of his wealth. The rich
man of Luke 12 believed that life consisted of the
things he possessed and did not make certain his soul.
"Thou foolish one, this night is thy soul required of
thee; and the things which thou hast prepared,
whose shall they be? So is he that layeth up treasure
for himself, and is not rich toward God" (vv20-21).
What do you live for? What you live for is what,
you will die for. If you live for the world you will die
with nothing. If you live for God you will die with
everything. The promise of eternal life is all that
matters. Death is certain. What are you certain of?

ing properties; they are present
cash values, highest and best
use, location, quantity, replace-
ment value of improvements,
condition, income produced
and net proceeds of the sale of
property. After these factors are
considered, our office then has
the task of valuing the 13,500
plus parcels each year. As you
can see, this is not an easy task
nor is it one that we take lightly.
Proposed tax bills will be sent
out around the middle of Au-
gust, and it is very important
that citizens take the time to
review them carefully, as our
office has deadlines that have to
be met when making changes to
assessed values. The Property
Appraisers office does not set
millage rates. Our only job is
to mass appraise properties and
create assessed values.
Please know that our door is
always open should you have
any questions regarding your as-
sessed value. Please feel free to

My family like yours means the world to me and this is one of the many reasons.that I am running
for this position. Public service was instilled in me at an early age and I would like the opportunity to
serve as your Gilchrist County Court Judge and believe that it is important to give something back to
this community that has over the years been very supportive and good to me and my family.

My wife and I are actively involved in both of our young children' school, sports, and
extracurricular activities despite the fact that we are both working parents and we know the time
commitment that working parents make to attend all of these activities. I have practiced law here in
Trenton for almost 12 years now and my wife also works here in the office so we both fully identify
with the working mothers and fathers in the county.

So that you will know, because of the nature of this office I am not accepting monetary or in-kind
campaign contributions in support of my campaign although many people have offered, nor do I have
a formal election committee appointed to solicit funds or public statements of support for my
candidacy. As such, I am funding my campaign to the extent possible solely from my own personal
funds. By choice, I am running a grassroots election campaign and I am relying on my family, friends,
neighbors, associates, and other members of the county for their support. I am also relying upon the
goodwill which I have established over the years, and on word of mouth support of acquaintances. We
are also knocking on as many doors as we can requesting support and your vote and support will be
greatly appreciated.

IF YOU BELIEVE THAT IT IS TIME FOR A CHANGE I WOULD
APPRECIATE YOUR VOTE AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO SERVE AS YOUR
NEXT COUNTY COURT JUDGE IN THIS VERY IMPORTANT OFFICE.

Sincerely,
David Miller (Duke) Lang

For those who believe, prayer
is a powerful weapon. It not
only does something for the
pra.-er, but also it can increase
the faith of those %\ho are being
prayed for, especially\ those who
are in harm's way and protecting
our freedoms which we some-
times take for granted here in the
United States of America.
We all should be consistent
in our prayers for those of our'
county \ho are serving in the
Armed Forces. The following
is a know\ n list of those who are
on active duty, and who either
Share a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives

C\I
2 To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
*Mi

.n It is an honor and privilege to offer myself as a choice for your County
* -
SCommissioner in District 2. This is a decision not taken lightly or
made in recent months. Since graduating from the University of
Florida in 1991, I have strived to prepare myself for this office by my
0 leadership experiences, civic affiliations, and community involve-
Sment. Gilchrist County has been a major part of my life and for that I
S am gracious.


As you examine candidates for this office, I ask that you take the time
u) to determine which candidate will offer those qualities you deem de-
. sirable for Gilchrist County. Leadership, integrity, teamwork and a
willingness to stand fast on issues must be at the top of those lists.
Ability to operate within the means of the county and growth manage-
o ment skills will also factor into the success or regression in the next
four years.


Gilchrist County can't afford to regress or even remain constant. We
must be willing to move forward and work together for the benefit of
- all. I, Terry D. Parrish, pledge to work for the betterment of Gilchrist
P County and make decisions on fact rather than political persuasion. I
will not ride the fence but rather lead for the betterment and future of
Gilchrist County. My only promise to you is that my decisions will be
Based on experience, moral value, and what's best for citizens of Gil-
christ County.


I ask that you consider me, Terry D. Parrish, as your choice for County
. Commissioner, District 2.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Shown is Christine Kimbrell who is the youngest member of
Log Cabin Quilters. She is quilting a quilt for the 3rd grade
children at Chiefland Elementary School. She is 13 now and
volunteered to quilt it. Kay Warner is the teacher. Debbie,
Christine's mother, put it together and it will soon be ready to
be hung at school. We are very proud of Christine as she had
won five blues and one red ribbon at the Tampa Fair.


Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 3rd, at the
'Levy County Quilt Museum.
The third quilt was put in and
,-quilting goes on. It is an ap-
pliqued flower pattern and will
get lots of quilting on it. Shirley
Murphy has finished a double
Irish chain and autumn leaves.
She does beautiful work on ev-
erything she does. B.J. has fin-
ished two baby quilts and Peggy
Williams has hemmed several
tablecloths. There is always so
much to do and everyone enjoys
what they do.
Jarrod and 10 boys were out


Tuesday and once when we
looked out several of them were
enjoying the gazebo they built.
We are hanging pictures inside
and have put posts around the
front of it to keep drivers from
getting too close.
It was an enjoyable time for
Pat; her husband Al and I went to
Camp Caruth and gave the quilt
to Mike, the director. It will be
taken to Live Oak later to be
signed by Sheriffs from all over
Florida as well as others con-
nected with the youth camps.
I think:we will all be glad to
see cooler weather. But we all
keep going and feel sorry for
some of the plants and flowers.


They will also be glad for cooler
weather.
Lunch was so good today.
Cabbage, fried okra, cornmeal
biscuits, spaghetti casserole,
green beans, potato salad, maca-
roni salad, cucumbers, deviled
eggs, cake and peaches.
We had 13 members and 2
guests present.

Dean Glen F.
Hoffsis, D.V.M. Has
Been Named Dean
Of University Of
Florida's Veterinary
Medicine
Glen F. Hoffsis, D.V.M., has
been named dean of the Col-
lege of Veterinary Medicine at
the University of Florida, UF
administrators announced today.
He will talk about his plans for
the college with faculty and staff
at noon today in Lecture Hall A
of the college's Veterinary Aca-
demic Building.
Recognized for leading the
College of Veterinary Medicine
at The Ohio State University to
national prominence, Hoffsis
was chosen after a nationwide
search, according to Doug-
las Barrett, M.D., senior vice
president for health affairs, and
Jimmy Cheek, Ph.D, senior vice'
president for agriculture and
natural resources.
'"During his tenure as dean at
Ohio State University, Dr. Hoff-
sis oversaw a remarkable expan-
sion in the college's research
and academic output, expanded
its clinical teaching hospital and
moved the college forward in
peer rankings to become one of
the best in the'country," Barrett
said. "He, knows how to build
and grow a college, and he's ex-
traordinarily enthusiastic about
this opportunity."
Hoffsis will officially begin
his new job Oct. 1, when he
will become the college's fifth
permanent dean.
"Dr. Hoffsis brings an incred-
ible amount of experience and
commitment to this position,"
said Jimmy Cheek, UF senior
vice president for .< agriculture,
and natural resources. "He's
done everything-from research-
ing cattle diseases and directing
a veterinary teaching hospital to
significantly expanding devel-
opment efforts and leading the
veterinary services division of a
major corporation."
After a long career at OSU
culminating with 11 years as
dean, Hoffsis joined lams, a
Procter & Gamble company, as
associate director of veterinary
services. As such, he has led a
group that implements academic
programs in colleges of vet-
erinary medicine in the United
States and overseas.
"At this point, I'm looking
forward to combining my.expe-
rience in academia with my new
perspectives gained in the cor-,
porate world and putting them
to good use at the University
of Florida," Hoffsis said. "I see
the UF veterinary college as a
top-ranked college with a bright
future."
Hoffsis noted Florida's strong
-agricultural, equine and small
animal industry constituencies
are valuable resources for UF's
veterinary college and would'
continue to be assets in the fu-
ture.
"I am honored to have the op-
portunity to lead the fine College
of Veterinary Medicine at UF to
a new level of excellence," he
said.

nary Medicine progressed from
a limited accreditation status
with the American Veterinary
Medical Association during
Hoffsis' term as dean to a rank-
ing of sixth among veterinary
medical schools in the country
by U.S. News & World Report.
In the meantime, sponsored
research at the college doubled,
the budget nearly tripled and a
major fundraising effort resulted
in the acquisition of nine new
endowed chairs and professor-
ships, including the endowed
deanship. Three new buildings
were added at the college.
Hoffsis is an established and
visible.leader among veterinary
medical school deans, having
served as a..former president
of the Association of American
Veterinary Medical Colleges,
UF administrators said.
Furthermore, he has also
been president of the American
Association of Bovine Prac-
titioners and chairman of the
Food and Drug Administration's
veterinary medicine advisory
committee.
Hoffsis received his veterinary
medical degree from Ohio State
in 1966 and completed an intern-
ship in large animal medicine at
Colorado State University in
1967. He is a board-certified
veterinary internist. He replaces,
former dean Joseph DiPietro,
D.V.M., who served nine years
in the job and left in February
to become vice president for
agriculture at the University of
'Tennessee.

23, of Wildwood, was travel-
ing north on the river at ap-
proximately 30 miles per hour,
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
investigators said.
Just north of the Hart Springs
Sand Bar, Fessenden looked
back to locate, his girlfriend,
Danielle Lowell who was riding
on another personal watercraft.
A four-foot sturgeon jumped
from the water, hitting Fessen-
den, causing him to fall from his
vessel and knocking him uncon-
scious, officials said.
Lowell, who went to Fessen-
den's aid, held his head above
water. Passengers on another
vessel pulled Fessenden from
the water and took him to' the
Hart Springs Boat Ramp.'
Fessenden was airlifted to
Shands Hospital in Gainesville.
He sustained non-life threaten-
ing injuries, FWC investigators
said.

You can do very little with faith, but you can do nothing without it.
Samuel Butler


Two important reasons I'm running for School Board, District 5
are my children, James & Kelby.
I can think of at least 2,800 other reasons.














I have been actively involved in our school system for

the past ten years and I will continue to be active.
The outcome of the upcoming election will not affect


my involvement. I have a vested interest in the

future of the Gilchrist County School System. A vote

for Michelle Carter is a vote for an involved,

interested and active parent.

Quilters & Cpcifters


Shown is Barbara Strom with just one of the many quilts she
has created.


Well, what can I tell you that
you don't already know? Most
of the kids are already back in
school, we need rain, it's way too
hot and Halloween and Thanks-
giving with all the trimmings are
on the shelves. If you think it's
too early to start buying fall's
fixins, think again. I guarantee
you that by the time you think
it's time to buy scarecrows and
pumpkins it all will have been
replaced by...yep...Christmas.
Seems like no matter how hard
I try, I'm always a holiday or


two behind. I do, however, have
a jump on Christmas. Due to
some unusual circumstances in
my life this year, my tree is still
up, decorated, and ready to go
and I might add still looks great.
Funny how in years gone by
I would have had a fit had you
even suggested such a thing.
Outside of taking up some badly
needed space I've really gotten
quite use to it and even turn it on
once in a while.
You know how they say you
should keep Christmas in your
heart all year round? This year


m I-- --m o


it's not only been in my heart but
in my living room...praise God.
But on Wednesday, August
2nd, few if any Joyful Hearts
were thinking of Christmas as
twenty-one of us and one visi-
tor made our way through the
already scorching heat to our
beloved air-conditioned build-
ing. How did we live without it?
Then you stop and realize how
many folks here and everywhere
don't and never will have air-
conditioning and hopefully you
praise God and give thanks for
"all" the blessings we enjoy.
Elaine Nemeth busied herself
cutting light purple squares for
each of us to start our "Joyful
Hearts" quilt and she managed
to get some quilting in as well.
Ann Mangone, Evelyn Wood,
Mary Lou Ryder, and Barbara
Strom all were busy as bees at
the frame as well. At this rate
that quilt should be off the frame
in no time.
The mother and daughter
team, Maxine Hale and Pat
Luka were both embroidering
lovely pillowcases and so was
I. Marvine Deer was embroider-
ing also. Diana Lynn couldn't
stay long so she just collected
dues and visited until she had
to leave.
The Swedish Weavers were
weaving away...Alice Binns,
Heidi Kamp, and Cathy Strom.
Cathy also tied a lap quilt for our
V.A. project. So far we've com-
pleted forty-four. Oh, and back
to Swedish weaving, looks like
Alice has another Joyful Heart
hooked. She was teaching Betty
the ins and outs of it. Hang in
there Betty.
Myrle Gilkey brought in a
lovely sweater she'd crocheted.
It was pink with a lavender
fuzzy front. She's working on
another one in different colors.
Rita Simcoe was busy chatting
and showing off several quilts
she's completed. I believe it
was Rita who brought our visi-
tor who we hope will come back
and join us.
The "amen corner" was alive
and well. Alberta Swanner was
crocheting squares for an af-
ghan, Paulene Martin was busy
doing chicken scratch, and Ann
Taylor was knitting hot pads.
Both Ruth Wilkerson and Matty
Turner were crocheting and
Barbara Myrick worked on her
quilted lap square.
Although there wasn't a leaf
stirring outside, inside there
was a flurry of activity, peals of
laughter, and the hum of voices
exchanging news, receipts, craft
ideas, and life's ups and downs.
It's a great way to forget your
worries, housework, weeds, and
who said what to who...or is that
whom? It's as refreshing as a
tall ice tea on a hot summer day
and a blessing...praise the Lord.
We've been missing Alberta
Swanner who, praise God, was
able to make it. Also, we've
been missing Jackie Moore,
whose husband has been ill, we
need to keep them both in our
prayers as well as Lu Rowland.
She had a hand/wrist operation
and hopes to be back soon.
Our next meeting will be
on Wednesday, August 16th.
We'll celebrate our August
birthdays...Lu Rowland, Sylvia

Correction To Anni
Egan's Ad In August
3rd Journal
The Gilchrist County Journal
made a typographical error in
Mrs. Anni Egan's advertisement,
which ran in the August 3rd pa-
per. The line was supposed to
have read "Elect an experienced,
dedicated educator." We apolo-
gize for our error.


Arthur, Barbara Strom, Bonnie
Edwards, Ramona High and
Betty. Don't miss out on cake
and ice cream...it does a body
good!
'Till next time remember...
Always be prepared to give an
answer to everyone who asks
you to give the reason for the
hope that you have.
1 Peter 3:15.

This week I am reading My
Favorite Bride written by Chris-

country outside London. Miss
Samantha Pendergast goes to
the family as governess to the
six motherless children and finds
she is falling in love with their
father but before she can consent
to marry him, she must let him
know a dreadful secret concern-
ing her life in London.

read Mystery of the Secret Dolls
by Vicki Berger Erwin. Bon-
nie is going to spend the sum-
mer with her two elderly aunts
who have a doll museum with
dolls designed and dressed to
represent their ancestors, males
and females. Read the book to
discover what the answer is con-
cerning the museum.
We will recommend for the
beginning reader Disney's book,
From Whales to Snails, desciib-
ing how these animals are simi-

This book is educational and

As a dedicated educator, I have first-hand experience dealing with the complex issues that parents,
students, and school employees face on a daily basis. I have been teaching for seven years, and as a
National Board Certified Educator, I have successfully demonstrated how my actions, both in and out
of the classroom, have improved student achievement. National Board Certification is the highest
credential in the teaching profession, achieved by less than 2% of teachers nationwide. I currently
mentor local candidates, thereby helping promote high-quality education throughout our North Cen-
tral Florida schools.
I have always had a reputation for giving 100% of myself to helping students achieve beyond their
expectations. Parents appreciate my open-communication policy and willingness to be an advocate
for their children, not only in the classroom, but in all aspects to their lives. I diligently follow educa-
tion issues and am often sought out by others who respect my knowledge and seek guidance concern-
ing these issues. I plan to apply this same proficiency and awareness as a School Board member,
keeping abreast of and thoroughly researching topics. I will pose questions and promote discussion
of issues. I will continue to be a vocal advocate for students, families, school employees, and all those
working to provide a quality education for our children.
I hope you will consider these qualities when voting in the coming election. Together, we can help
our Gilchrist County School System continue to soar!

Citizens of Gilchrist County I'm blessed to be a part of this wonderful family. As you
can see we are all products of this wonderful Gilchrist County School System. I'm
proud to have a vested interest in our schools.
For some of my family members I've been fortunate enough to.be able to be avail-
able emotionally, spiritually and economically. I would continually like to be a part of
their future. For the smaller ones I would like to feel assured they would continually get
the quality education presently offered. For the older one, I would like to play a part in
these new academies and still keep intact older academies and organizations.
For their parents I would like them to continually enjoy working in our system. Also
that they continue to get the appreciation and compensation they have earned. I'm very
proud of my family's accomplishments. I'm also honored to know GCSS has played a
major part in their former success and will play a major part in their future ones.
Next I would like to commend all the schools for a wonderful, informative, warm
open house. Thanks to principals, teachers, staff aids and board members. I've spoken
to staff members and some principals. They all said the first day of school went surpris-
ingly well. I believe it was due to a successful, inviting open house. Keep up the good
work guys. I attended many of them and was very impressed. You all are truly profes-
sionals.

Springhouse Quilters News

The Stack and Whack quilt-
The Stack and Whack quilt-


Shown is Mary Kay Lucas with one of the Stack and Whack
quilts she recently completed.


ing workshop held during one
of the Nite Owl's meeting has
resulted in several members
piecing several Stack and whack
quilts. The method used to cut
and piece these quilts results in
some of the most unusual and
beautiful quilts you can imagine.
Mary Kay Lucas is one of the
members who has really been
using her new-found knowledge
to construct these quilts. She
has cut and pieced at least three
of the tops and is still searching,
for new fabric to cut and piece
another one. It is hard.to build a
stash of fabric when you work as
fast as Mary Kay.
Mary Rawlins will be show-
'ing her recently completed flan-
nel rag-jacket at the Springhouse
Quilter's monthly meeting this
week. She stopped by the Su-


wannee Valley Quilt shop on
Friday and gave the staff and
customers a sneak preview of
the jacket. It is a very useful
and practical jacket and will be
very warm when cold weather
arrives. It is a one-of-a-kind
jacket and is very attractive with'
the multi-colors used in making
the jacket.
Springhouse members will be
bringing one, ugly quilt block
to the meeting this month for
assignment to a member to take
the block and convert it into a
beautiful work of fabric-art.
This should be an interesting,
creative and fun project.
A work crew, with Mr. Jef-'
frey Crawl as supervisor, from
Lancaster has been working
to keep the Springhouse yard
mowed and the property looking
beautiful. Springhouse Quilters
appreciate all of the work the
work crew performs. '

USDA Proposes
Change To WIC
Food Packages
The U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture's Food and Nutrition
Service (FNS) today announced
proposed changes to the Special
Supplemental Nutrition Program
for Women, Infants and Children
(WIC) food packages that reflect
recommendations made by the
National Academies of Sciences'.
Institute of Medicine (IOM).
The current WIC food packag-
es were designed to supplement;
participant's diets with foods
rich in five nutrients-vitamins


A and C, calcium, iron and pro-
tein-because those nutrients
were lacking in the diets of the
WIC target population when the
program first began in 1974.
The proposed changes largely
follow recommendations made
by the IOM in the final report
of its review of the WIC food
packages, WIC Food Packages:
Time for a Change, as well as
the latest nutrition science and
the Dietary Guidelines. Under
the proposal, the food packages
would be revised to add new
foods such as fruits and veg-
etables and whole grains, while
amounts of some current foods
would be modified.
WIC provides pregnant,
breastfeeding, and postpartum
women, infants and children up
to age five with nutritious sup-
plemental foods. The program
also provides nutrition education
and referrals to health and social
services. About eight million
participants receive WIC ben-
efits each month. Federal food
costs for the program were $3.6
billion in fiscal year 2005.
Notice of this proposed rule
will be published in the Au-
gust 7, 2006 Federal Register.
A copy of the proposed rule can
be found at www.fns.usda.gov/
wic. Consideration will be
given to comments received up
to and through 90 days from the


publication date.
Comments may be submitted
by any of the following meth-
ods:

mental Food Programs Division,

Gilchrist County
Contracts With
Emergency
Communications
Network, Inc. For Its
"CodeRED"
Emergency
Notification Services
Department of Public Safety,
Division of Emergency Man-
agement
Gilchrist County has con-
tracted with Emergency Com-
munications Network, Inc., of
Ormond Beach, Florida, for its
"CodeRED" high-speed tele-
phone emergency notification
services. The CodeRED system
gives county officials the ability
to deliver pre-recorded emer-
gency telephone notification/in-
formation messages to targeted
areas or the entire county at a
rate of up to 60,000 calls per
hour.
Ron Mills, Assistant Director,
cautioned that such systems are
only as good as the telephone da-
tabase supporting them. "If your
phone number is not in the da-
tabase, you will not be called".
The CodeRED system not only
offers faster calling rates and
improved message delivery,
it gives individuals and busi-
nesses the ability to add their
own phone numbers directly to
the system's telephone database.
Mills emphasized that this is an
extremely important feature.
To ensure no one is omitted,
Mills urges all individuals and


businesses to log onto the Coun-
ty's website, http://gilchrist.fl.us/
and follow the link to the "Co-
deRED Residential and Business
Data Collection" page. Those
without Internet access may call
your Emergency Management
Office (352-463-3134), Monday
through Friday, (8AM-5PM) to
give their information over the
phone. Required information
includes first and last name,
street address (physical address,
, no P.O. boxes), city, state, zip
code, and primary phone num-
ber, additional phone numbers
(optional).

No one should automatically
assume his or her phone number
is included, Mills said. All busi-
nesses should register, as well
as all individuals who have un-
listed phone numbers, who have
changed their phone number or
address within the last year, and
who use a cellular phone as their
primary home phone.
Mills explained that the "Co-
deRED system is a geographical
based notification system, which
means street addresses are
needed to select which phone
numbers will receive emergency
notification calls in any given
situation. The system works fine
for cell phones too, but we have
to have a street address." People
who have recently moved but
kept the same listed or unlisted
phone number also need to
change their address in the da-
tabase.

Mills stated, "CodeRED gives
those who want to be included an
easy and secure method for doing
so. The information will only be
used for emergency notification
purposes." Questions should be
directed to the Gilchrist County
Emergency Management Office,
352-463-3134.

American Legion Airs
With the World War II veterans getting older, the American Legion is
looking to the younger veterans to fill in the ranks and continue the
Legion agenda. But the younger veterans just aren't coming. These
younger folks have other things to do, other commitments to make, and
just don't always have time for the Legion. Some may join, but can't
make the meetings for one reason or another, and these reasons may well
be legitimate. There are so many things pulling at all of us these days,
rendering our time even more valuable .for other important issues of the
day. Family is by far the most important issue for a reason. Yet, the
Nation is at war, and our fighting men and women are getting injured.
With the medical expertise our military teams have, many more G.I.s are
coming home alive. Many of these warriors are in need of help. Help in
getting re-settled, getting back to work, re-joining their families, and some
of these warriors have been injured seriously, needing help in even getting
in and out of their homes. The families of these veterans may need help
in re-establishing their lives together. The different Veteran Service
Organizations, of which the American Legion is the largest, are doing
what they can to help these returning veterans, as well as the veterans of
America's previous engagements. What the American Legion needs is
more veterans to join with us to become a more viable force for the
American veteran, and for our communities, too. Won't you consider
giving some time to help those still serving America and those that have
already served, to make their lives a little easier?
Trenton's American Legion Post 91 meets on the third Thursday of the
month for the regular meeting. And this month the Donation Dinner that
starts at 5:30 PM on August 17th, is going to be chicken and dumplings.
The dinner will go until they run out or 6:45, whichever comes first!
Anyone, Legion or not, is welcome to come out and eat. The donation
schedule is $5.00 for adults and it is all you can eat. If you are interested
in the American Legion or the Legion Auxiliary, hang around for the
meeting and see if you fit in.
The Post 91 "Family" will have the monthly Executive meetings
tonight at 6:00 PM. The Auxiliary and the Post meets at the same time at
the Post Home five miles north of Trenton on US-129. Just look for the
building with all the flags on Walker's Curve.
Newberry American Legion Post 149 and Auxiliary Unit 149 meets on
the first Tuesday of the month in their Post Home on SR-26 on the west.
side of Newberry. All interested guests are welcome to come by and see
if there is something where they might fit in.
There are several of our Legionnaires that are in need of prayer, due to
their illnesses. If you know of Legion Family that is homebound or in the
hospital, contact the Post Chaplain or even me, to let them know and they
can get the word out to those that can help.
A Legion Post is an advocate for veterans, soldiers and their families, to
be there for veterans and their families. Many who return from war don't
consider themselves veterans, as they think they have to be injured to
qualify, and there are so many things available to them as veterans, of
which they are not aware.. Like many of us who have served before, we
know what it is like to leave family behind and go to war. Problems arise.
at home, typical household things that break down, and the spouse at
home has to take care of it all. Maybe the car won't start, or the
lawnmower. Who can they call? If the local American Legion Post has
enough active members, that is part of what the American Legion is all
about. Taking the time to help our service members and veterans, and at
the same time, working in and for the community too.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Sgt-at-Arms, Post 149
