Gilchrist Commission Approves

$350,000 Increase In

Sheriffs Budget
Step Plan Is Included To Increase Salaries For Road Deputies


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission tentatively approved a
$350,000 increase for the Gil-
christ County Sheriffs 2006-
2007 budget during a workshop
meeting on Thursday afternoon.
The board reviewed and dis-
cussed the individual depart-
mental requests the sheriff made
in his $718,000 proposed
budget increase. The board after
cutting several .judicial bailiffs'
positions and several new vehi-
cles, agreed to approve a $5,000
per position step plan for the 15
sheriffs department patrol
deputies. The board took this
action to make sure that the
road deputies received their
proposed step-plan funding for


salary increases.
The Gilchrist County Sher-
iffs Department received $2.6
million to fund the entire opera-
tion of the office in the 2005-
2006 fiscal year. The Sheriff
proposed an increase amount-
ing to $718,000 for the 2006-
2007 operations that would take
the budget to $3.3 million. At
the present time the Sheriffs
Office has 52 employees. The
$350,000 funding approved by
the board for the 2006-2007
budget is a 13% increase in the
sheriffs budget.
Conimission Chairman
Tommy Langford, before voting
in favor of the proposed in-
crease, asked each.of the com-
missioners to propose their own


figures based on what they felt
the sheriff could operate the
chief law enforcement depart-
ment in Gilchrist County on in
an effective manner. The board
following a lengthy debate ap-
proved the proposal 5-0 after
Commissioner Mitchel Gentr
made a motion to approve the
$350,000 proposal and Com-
missioner Randy Durden gave a
second to this motion.
Sheriff Turner, on Monday
August 21, addressed the Board
of Commissioners to present a
check for $12K as a reim-
bursement for medical and pre-
scription care that was provided
to the inmates during their in-

Jumping Sturgeon Injures Two

Residents Saturday Afternoon

Near Sun Springs


A jumping sturgeon on the
Suwannee River injured two
boaters Saturday afternoon near
Sun Springs on the border of
Gilchrist and Dixie counties.
Cheyenne Russ, 9 years old,
and Jennifer K. Sullivan, 31
years old, both of Lake City,.
were struck by the fish. Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) Officer
Dorvan Daniel witnessed the
strike.
"I saw this vessel, operated by
Scott Lockwood of Lake City,
coming toward me at about 30
miles per hour. I watched as
the fish jumped out of the water
and heard the impact when it
hit. The child was knocked out
of the boat and into the water,"
Daniel said. "The boat stopped
immediately and I began shout-
ing at the operator to get the little
girl. She was treading water and


screaming for help."
The people on board pulled
the child into the vessel and
brought her to Daniel. "I had
a first aid kit on board my boat
and began treating her. We got
Lockwood's vessel over to a
nearby boat ramp' and met up
with Levy County Emergency
Medical Services. Another
person on board also had been
struck by the fish and suffered a
broken arm," Daniel said.
Both boaters were transported
to Shands Hospital in Gaines-
ville. The group put into the Su-
wannee at Sandy Point and had
been on the river about 45 min-
utes when the strike occurred.
Sun Springs, also know as Aiken
Springs, is about six miles north
of the Greenway bridge west of
Wilcox.
Prior to this incident, FWC
officials had begun working on


a public awareness campaign to
alert boaters to the risk of jump-
ing sturgeons. This is the sixth
incident in 2006 that a sturgeon
has jumped from the water and
struck a boat.
"We are preparing to post'
signs along the Suwannee at
each boat ramp, explaining the
Risk of impacts with these fish,"
said Major Bruce Hamlin, re-
gional commander for FWC's
North Central Region. "Boat-
ers have been seriously injured
when hit by these fish. This is&
the sixth reported sturgeon strike
this summer. We want to make
the public aware that these fish
are in the Suwannee and they do
jump. We recommend boaters
reduce their speed to reduce the
risk of inpact."
Biologists are unsure as to why

Committee
On .August 14, 2006, the
Town of Bell had a Special
SMeeting wherein many citizens
and business owners expressed
their concerns regarding the

Trenton City Commission

Considers Reducing Proposed

Property Tax To 5.5 Mills


By John M Avers
The Trenton City Commis-
sion held a Budget Workshop
'meeting Monday -evening to
consider revisions that the City
Manager Jered Ottenwess had
made to the City of Trenton
proposed 2006-2007 budget.
The board in .this meeting
was reviewing the budget to
reduce the proposed 8.34 mill
property tax increase. Residents
and business owners in the city
of Trenton crowded into the
small city hall meeting room to
listen and address the board
about the proposed tax increase.
Mayor Pete Randolph told
the audience that he was aware
that this is a very controversial
issue, but he was establishing
guidelines for individuals if
they wanted to speak. The
Mayor pointed out that if some-
one wanted to address the
board, they should step up to the
podium give their name and
speak to the board.
Trenton City Manager Jered
O lie,' i, t- -. Lp.:,wtd a ilnjw O to
the board. that identified tfiat the
board had a previous surplus/
deficit of $173,815. With the
reductions and changes the City
Manager proposed to the
budget, the City identified a net
decrease in the deficit of
$35,900. This changed the cur-
rent surplus/deficit to $137,915.
The City Manager recom-
mended to the board that they
consider an AdministratiVe Fee
to be charged from the City's
Water and Sewer fund that
would provide additional reve-
nues to the City's General Fund.'
The City Manager also told
the Commission that this pro-
posed budget did not include
many equipment needs by the
maintenance staff. He explained
that this includesthings like new
lawn mowers from $2,000 to
$10,000; new vehicles from
$5,000 to $20,000; the Animal
Control facility that needs cat


quarantine areas, more dog pens
and general improvements such
as signs.
Finance committee chairman
Commissioner Glen Thigpen
recommended to the board that
they should consider a Special
Assessment to cover the cost of
Public Services like law en-
forcement and fire service. The
City of Trenton Fire Depart-
ment's annual budget is
$50,000. The City receives an
estimated $25,000 a year from
Gilchrist County for assisting in
providing fire service in the
unincorporated areas of the
county.
Thigpen told the board after
going over several of the deficit
figures that he would consider
proposing a 5 mill tax. "I am
aware that the City Manager has
prepared this budget with some
additional revenues in some
places," Thigpen, a first term
commissioner explained.
Commissioner Bill Clifton
asked the City Manager in the
proposed budget revisions, what
kind of a reserve does the
budget now have? ''
The City Manager explained
that if the board approves a 5.5
mill property tax, this will give
the City enough revenue to pay
an estimated $75,000 that is
owed on invoices that have not
been paid over a three month
period. The City Manager told
the board that the City is 'cur-
rently $1.4 million in debt on
loans ranging from 5 to 20
years. These loans range from
the City share of a grant match
for the construction of the new
sewer treatment plant, Pines
Estates sewer project, City of
Trenton Fire and Municipal
Services facility and others over
the last five years.
Trenton resident Lavaughn
Sessions told the board that the
4-6% salary increase for the
City Manager is fine if you have
the money, but the City needs to


tighten their belt and conserve
spending at this time. "We are
here tonight to help the board
reduce the proposed property
tax. People in Trenton on fixed
incomes are paying more taxes
than they have ever paid be-
fore," explained Sessions, a
retired Trenton Mayor-
Commissioner
Commissioner Thigpen told
the audience that he felt it was
important to fund the 4% salary
increase for the Trenton em-
ployees as a cost of living in-
crease.
Trenton resident Randy Rut-
ter told the board that the 8.34
proposed tax increase is a 43%
increase in property taxes. He
asked the board what additional
services the City of Trenton
would provide in lieu of the tax
increase. Mr 'Rutter recom-
mended that a 2-mill increase
would be fair and cost effective
to the property owners in Tren-
ton.
Trenton businessman Wilbur
Bush told the board that he has
paid taxes in Trenton and Qil-
christ County since 1957. "I
have paid my fair share," the
former County Commissioner
and businessman explained.
"When has the City of Trenton
had a balanced budget?" Mr.
Bush asked.
Commissioner Thigpen ex-
plained that the City of Trenton'
has passed a balanced budget on
paper 2 of the last 3 years he
has been on the board.
"The City of Trenton cannot
operate on a hypothetical
budget, the board must operate
within the revenues they re-
ceive," Bush explained.
Trenton businessman Paul
Redd told the board, "I don't
mind paying -my fair share, but
this 8.34 mills proposed tax is a
burden on the 30-40 businesses
that are saddled with writing
checks to get the City of Tren-

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Monday evening I was,
one of a standing room only
crowd of people that attended
the Trenton City Commission
Budget Workshop meeting.
Since the beginning of the
Commission proposing this un-
reasonable 8.34 mill property
tax, I have had little faith in this
five member board to do what
actually needs to be done to
reduce their overspending in
this municipality.
Monday night was just a
continuing saga of one commis-
sioner proposing this and an-
other proposing they cut that.
The board together or individu-
ally has yet to take the time to
ask the City Manager for a line
item review of the budget to
identify each department to re-
duce or cut out the unnecessary
expenditures.
I listened to people that are
on fixed incomes that live off of
$1,000 to $1,200 a month from
social security. Many of these
residents told the board that
they have not budgeted for this
size of tax increase and that this
would be an undue burden for
them to pay.
The Trenton Commission
heard residents and business
owners ask each, of them why
didn't the board take action to
pass a smaller millage rate in
years past.
I can tell you why, the three
board members that were on this


commission at that time didn't
want to be opposed by someone
that spoke against their pro-
posed property tax. They, as a
board, continued to fund the
City of Trenton on the increases
in water and sewer fees, connect
fees and any other type of fees
that are identified as users fees.
I sat there last night and lis-
tened to property owners and
business people, and I just con-
tinued to think of just how irre-
sponsible can these elected offi-
cials be.
When I look at the amount
of money these commissioners
are suppose to be responsible
for, and the decisions that they
are elected to make; I just can't
imagine if I was a commis-
sioner, coming back to the busi-
nesses and residents in Trenton
expecting them to bail me out of
debt.
The real solution to this
problem is for the commission-
ers to bite the bullet and sell a
portion of the property in east
Trenton to get themselves out of
debt. Then as one of the busi-
ness owners explained, take the
money that you have left from
the sale. after paying their
$75,000- of overdue bills, estab-
lish a budget reserve, pass a 1-2
mill property tax, and then be-
gin to operate within a balanced
budget.
No, not a hypothetical
budget, or proposed budget; the
City Commission must operate
within a balanced budget. This
means a budget that each com-
missioner knows and has stud-
ied, and that they are -not de-

--,


Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd

Why do I have this uneasy
feeling that we are looking at the
calm before the storm? Someone
in my position should be over-
joyed that the Fed is taking a
breather, economic growth has
slowed and both the producer
price index (PPI) and the con-
sumer price index (CPI) appear
to indicate that inflation remains
under control.
To begin with, the PPI and the
CPI numbers look just a little
too good. I am going to reserve
judgment until I see the revised
numbers next month. Add in the
comments made last week by
Richard Fisher, President of the
Dallas Federal Reserve Bank,
who warned not to assume the
Fed was done raising rates.
"There is a definite increase in
inflationary momentum," Fisher
said, and the Fed "will not toler-
ate" inflationary pressures gain-
ing a foothold.
Furthermore, maybe I am
wrong but I do not see crude oil
prices falling below $73 per bar-
rel and remaining there. Nor do I
see gasoline falling below $3.00
a gallon and remaining there.
What I- do see is lower cor-
porate profits and continuing
pressure being exerted by Wall
Street, boards of directors and
corporate management to do ev-
erything possible to raise those
declining profit levels.
Consider that a year ago Wal-
Mart attributed its smallest quar-
terly profit gain in four years
to the fact that rising oil prices
have reduced sales and driven
up costs. Last week Wal-Mart
reported that its quarterly earn-
ings declined for the first time in
10 years.
Yes, part of that was due to
Wal-Mart extracting itself from
Germany. However, the key
point is that earnings elsewhere
were not high enough to effec-
tively neutralize the problem.
Wal-Mart is an important barom-
eter because the retail behemoth
draws in more than 100 million


pending on someone else to tell
them that yes they can afford it.
If the commissioners are not
willing to become knowledge-
able and do what they need to
do to be responsible elected
officials, maybe they need-to be
replaced. Maybe we need com-
missioners who will do the job
and be responsible stewards of
the city's revenues.

By Cindy Jo Ayers

"A nation which does not
remember what it was yesterday
does not know where it is
today." Robert E. Lee

Do y'all remember hot August
afternoons and nights when we
were young children?
Remember how back in those
simpler times someone would
hand crank a churn of ice cream
and ask neighbors to come on
over for a visit. I still remember
playing hide and seek around
the yard with other neighbor
kids while our fathers took turns
hand cranking the old churn.
One of our favorite things to
do in those days was catch
fireflies and put them in a jar in
our bedrooms. We had a good
time watching those little bugs
light up all during the night.
Another less kind game was to
see who could catch the most
fireflies and smear them on their
clothes. Our yard was very dark
at night since there were no
street lights because we lived in
the country. Anyway I'm sure

customers every week.
With the lower productivity
and the growing possibility of
increasing numbers of workers
seeking relief from rising energy
prices by means of higher wages,
corporations are going to have to
reduce costs by cutting back,
leading to the possible reces-
sion that the Fed said last week
is not likely to happen, or by
raising prices to the extent that
the higher margins exceed the
effect of lower, revenues...hello
inflation.
Although I might be need-
lessly concerned in the same
way that children are sometimes
afraid of the dark, and I hope that
I am, forewarned is forearmed.
Therefore, you want to look for
companies that are capable of
adjusting their product mix in
accordance with consumer de-
mand and are sufficiently well
diversified- into product..lines
that hav becomeme esseritidls in
our day-to-day living .i.''I ., ;'
A good example is Procter
& Gamble. A year ago when I
wrote about the company, it was
trading at $53, as compared to its
recent price of $60.43, for a gain
of 14 percent.
The intrinsic value of the
shares on a discounted earnings
basis is $63.21, while a free cash
flow to the firm model yields
$77. My current earnings esti-
mate is for $3.00 per share for
the coming fiscal year. At the
current multiple or P/E of 23,
Procter & Gamble should be
trading at about $69 per share a
year from now for a capital gain
of 14 percent plus a dividend
yield of 2 percent.

that we were a sight chasing
each other, around in the dark
glowing from firefly remains.
Remember how good that
homemade ice cream was?
Peach ice cream was and is my
favorite. When John and I first
married we would churn ice
cream quite often. The
following recipe was the one we
used back then and as a matter
of fact it is the one I would use
now if I made it today. It has
raw eggs in it and I know that
eating raw eggs can be a
problem for some people so I
included a warning. Also you
can heat about 2 cups of milk
and the beaten eggs for about 10
minutes, do not boil and stir
often, cool completely. Then
make ice cream as per the
directions using the cooked egg
and milk mixture.
eSea^LC4i c G6 eamz
6 eggs
2 cup sugar
2 can evaporated milk
1 pint whipping cream
1 quart of milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 pint of crushed peaches
(I put my peaches in a food
processor and process with
knife blade till peaches are
liquid)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Beat eggs with mixer; add
sugar, evaporated milk,


whipping cream, vanilla, salt
and peaches. Pour this mixture
in churn bowl and add enough
milk to fill to the fill line.
Freeze according to churn
directions.
NOTE: Eating raw eggs carry a
risk of salmonella. The very
young, the very old, pregnant
women or anyone with a
compromised immune system
should not consume foods
containing raw eggs.
Tip: Chill the ice cream maker
bowl as well as the dasher
before making the ice cream.

7 The Wicked Bible
(Kent Heaton)


I was reading the other day about a couple of
printers in 1631 London that made a very.seriots
mistake in printing an official edition of the Bible. It
seems they left one word, out of the Ten
'Commandments. Instead of 'the Seventh
Commandment reading, "Thou shalt not commit
adultery," they left out the "not" and it read "Thou
shalt commit adultery.." The book became know as
"the Wicked Bible. Their mistake nearly led to their
imprisonment.
One word can make a woild of difference in
taking medicine, using recipes, measuring distance,
etc. The Space Shuttle operates on a strict series of
specifications that would bring disaster if the
calculations were incorrect. Delicate surgeries
demand the most precise use of instruments and
medicines to successfully complete. Everyday life is
measured by the use of making certain those
important things needed to function are in the right
place at the right time.
Imagine the trouble when the word of God is
corrupted by the adding or subtracting of one word.
Paul wrote: "Now concerning the things whereofye
wrote unto me: It is good for a man not to touch a
woman" (1 Corinthians 7:1). Leave the word "not"
out see what you have. What would have happened to
three thousand people on the day of Pentecost if Peter
would have said, "Be baptized every one of you in the
name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit" (Acts 2:38).
They needed to "repent" and without repentance
would perish (Luke 13:3).
Men add words to the Bible. Peter wrote,
"baptism doth also now save us" (1 Peter 3:21)


although religious men write "Baptism doth not also
save us." Preachers today proclaim that "faith only"
saves when the Bible uses the words "faith only" in
one place in the Bible "You see then how a man is
justified by works, and not by faith only" (James
2:24).
The Lord declares the inviolability of His word.
"You shall not add to the Word which I command
you, neither shall you take away from it"
(Deuteronomy 4:2). "All the things I command you,
be careful to do it. You shall not add to it, nor take
away from it" (Deuteronomy 12:32). "Do not add to
His Words, lest He reprove you-and you be found a
liar" (Proverbs 30:6). "If anyone adds to these
things, God will add on him the plagues that have
been written in this Book. And if anyone takes away
from the Words of the Book of this prophecy, God

will take away his part out of the Book of Life, and
out of the holy city, and from the things which have
been written in this Book" (Revelation 22:18-19).
The result of adding one word or taking one word
away from the word of God is eternal in nature. This
mistake cannot be made and every effort must be
given to secure the truth of God's word. "Many will
say to Me in that day, Lord! Lord! Did we not
prophesy in Your name, and through Your name
throw out demons, and through Your name do many
wonderful works? And then I will say to them I
never knew you! Depart from Me, those working
lawlessness" (Matthew 7:22-23). I have wondered if
these people described by Jesus Christ were misled
by a single word or idea. It would be .frightful to
stand before God and realize all was lost because of
one word. What do you think?

Duke Lang
S. 1955- m
.. '- "Practicing Attorney in
Gilchrist County Since 1994

First, let me say that I am not my father and in no way do I profess to be. I have run my campaign
based solely upon my own strengths, merits, and qualifications. However, I cannot completely separate
myself from the man nor would I want to, as I dearly loved and am very proud of my dad who served
faithfully and honorably as your former Gilchrist County Court Judge for some 22 years until his
retirement.
My father believed that the Suwannee Valley area and especially' Gilchrist County and the people
residing here are unique to the country and to the world, and he maintained a deep and abiding respect
for both the physical beauty of the county and to-its inhabitants during his lifetime. After receiving his
law degree he chose to return here, marry and raise his family here, and in spite of the vast amount of
legal knowledge he possessed and the numerous awards and recognition that he received during his
career, he remained a truly accessible people person with about as many friends as anyone I have ever
known. Throughout his long judicial career my father always remembered and reminded me through
the years that he served the people and that the office belonged not to him, but to the people.
I believe that I have been truly fortunate to have been given some of the same personality traits that
made my father such a good public servant. I am also blessed to have been able to follow much the
same path as my dad by being able to return to Gilchrist County and practice law here and to be able to.
raise my family in the place that I love and call home. I would be honored to serve as your next
Gilchrist County Court Judge and I humbly ask for your consideration and vote. I believe that I have
the temperament and knowledge to serve and I pledge faithful and impartial performance of the duties
of this office when elected.

Sincerely,
David Miller (Duke) Lang

County Commissioner Candidate

,k for District.4, Mervin L. (Skip) Hines

answers citizens' question regarding

why he is running for
County Commissioner!

.The most frequently asked question of Hines is "What is his purpose-for running for County Commis-
sioner?"
His answer is as follows:
He was raised in Gilchrist County along with many generations before him. He wants to do his part in
making sure future generations will be as proud to be raised in this county as he and his family have been.
He owns an electrical contracting company which he works in counties that have not controlled or planned
for growth. He sees how it negatively impacts the county and the tax paying citizens that reside in the county.
He would like to help plan (both short and long term) for the inevitable growth that Gilchrist County is
already encountering.
In planning for the growth he wants to secure that all aspects of growth are being addressed such as:
Refuge. What will we do with the added burden of additional garbage from growth? Not just in the next
year but 10-20 years down the road. How much will it cost the county? How will we pay for it?
Agriculture. Are we doing everything we can in the county with the help of the state to protect the
farming/agriculture industry that made Gilchrist County what it is? Are we addressing the concerns of the
farmers to protect them from new rules and regulations that would make it unprofitable for them to continue
farming their land, which has been farmed for many generations?
Emergency Services. Are we content with where we are with our emergency services? If we are not
prepared now, what will happen with future growth? Our fire departments, sheriff's office, paramedics and
EMT's need the support of the county in the ways of adequate budgets to provide necessary equipment, paid
training and adequate facilities.
Roads. We need to establish a very defined road program. The commission needs to work with the road
department in developing workable solutions with long range planning to maintain and/or repair our current
roads.
We need to be a community friendly commission with more taxpayer input on major decisions that affect
the county.
My father, Mervin Hines,taught me to be economically sound. Budget and keep spending within the budget.
Make sure you are using all resources available to you and expand as you can afford to. In other words we
need to plan our success for the county so that we don't have to clean up our failings within the county.
Begin your involvement in the county and vote Mervin L. (Skip) Hines for County Commissioner, District
4.

Please Remember
To Pray For Our
Troops

For those who believe, prayer
is a powerful weapon. It not
only does something for the
pray-er, but also it can increase
the faith of those who 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 who are serving in the
Armed Forces. The following
is a known list of those who are
on active duty, and who either
have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives
here in Gilchrist County. (If you
know of an active military per-
sonnel who is not listed, please
contact the Gilchrist County
Journal, so that person can be
listed the next time this article is
published.

Everybody loves a parade, except maybe those that have to clean up
after it. But a Veterans Day parade is being planned for Friday, November
10, 2006. All the area Veteran Service Organizations are invited to
participate in this event. On Saturday, November 11, the "real" Veterans
Day, will be Down Home Days in Trenton, as well as the opening day of
General Gun Hunting Season. There will be plenty for everyone to do
that weekend. Watch the parade Friday, then go set up camp, get up early
and on to the hunting stand (or get up to go to an early breakfast), and by
mid morning or at least noon, make it by Down HomeDays and do a little
pre-Christmas shopping, or just find something that suits your fancy
(whatever it may be). For more information on the Veterans Day parade,
contact the Gilchrist County Historical Society, the same folks that have
brought us the Memorial Day Services each year. Maybe you can help
them in some way, in honoring our Nation's veterans.
Post 91 in Trenton is planning to host a POW/MIA program at an area
football game soon to honor those Prisoners of War and Missing in
Action. The third Friday of September is the National POW/MIA
Recognition Day every year and thisyear that Friday is September 15th.
Since December 7th, 1941, America has lost many soldiers, sailors,
airmen and Marines, and many of them have been accounted for and their
remains have been brought home or buried in foreign cemeteries, but
those troops have been accounted for and the families have received a
certain amount of 'closure'. For over 88,000 families since 1941, there
has been no real 'closure'. These are our Nation's POW/MIAs. Nearly
enough to fill Ben Hill Griffith Stadium at Florida Field on Game day.
Eighty-eight thousand souls who never came home, whose families may
never know what happened to them, or where their remains are.
The Central Identification unit in Hawaii still sends teams around the
world, searching battle sites for any traces of our troops and brings those
items back to the lab to test and determine who these remains belonged to.
Then, after testing proves the identity, the next of kin will be notified, if
they can be found. A great deal of thanks is owed the men and women
that work at the Central Identification Laboratories in Hawaii for the work
they do for the POW/MIA.
Recently, some divers found a sunken US submarine in the Western
Pacific in the Gulf of Thailand and notified the Navy. A Navy
diving/recovery ship was eventually sent to the area and sent divers down
to check the submarine and determine if it indeed was the one lost in that
area in 1945, with some 80 men on board. It was determined to be the
USS Lagarto, SS-371, and the coordinates were marked. The US Navy
recognizes it now as a protected cemetery area, and the divers left a
monument in honor of those submariners from World War II whose
families would now know for sure what had happened to their loved ones.,
With torpedo tube doors open, it was easy to determine USS Lagarto went
down fighting.
American Legion Post 91 is planning a Children and Youth Day for
Saturday, September 23. There will be fun and games and food, too.
More information about the Children and Youth Day will come later.
Primary Elections are coming. Get out and VOTE! September 5th,
2006. VOTE!
The Fourth District meeting will be held on September 9, 2006 at
Belleview Post 284.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world, every day in your
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those service members on active
duty, helping out whenever and however you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Sgt-at-Arms, Post 149

S' RE-ELECT


.JUDGE ED PHILMAN

COUNTY COURT JUDGE


My fairness, integrity, experience and service have built a solid foundation for me
to continue as your County Judge. My record on the bench and in the community
clearly convey my value system and my desire to have a positive impact upon
Gilchrist County.

FAIRNESS
I treat everyone equally and fairly in my courtroom. I have no agenda other than
to know the law, listen to the facts and be fair in my decisions.

EXPERIENCE
In my. 17years on the bench I have handled thousands of cases and believe the
justice system of Florida works best when it has prepared and experienced
judicial officers serving on the bench.

INTEGRITY
Two very important guides in my life are my abiding faith in God and the Code of
Judicial Conduct.

SERVICE
I believe in making a difference through service, both at work and in the
community. You have seen me at numerous school, youth, church and community
functions for many years, lending my support and encouragement. I have been a
foster parent, served on the Hospice Board of Directors, established and conduct
Mock Trials for 5th graders, coached BHS's Moot Court team, chair Trenton
Rotary's Youth Exchange program and served as Rotary President. I am a combat
infantry veteran of Vietnam U.S. Army.

LET Y LIFE AND THE WORK I HA DONE SPEAK FOR ME

RE-ELECT JUDGE ED PHILMAN
Please visit my website or call me for information on my background and experience or if you have questions.
Home 386-935-2333 www.Re-ElectJudgeEdPhilman.com
Cell 352-221-4673 Political advertisement paid.for and approved by Edward (Ed) Philman, nonpartisan for Gilchrist County Court Judge, Group 1


To the Concerned Citizens-of Gilchrist County:

As one of your elected officials, I must-respond to the Editor's comments
of last week. I need to let you know that I have indeed learned much, not only as
one of your commissioners, but also as a candidate for office this election year.
This time, it is different, because I have more knowledge about your concerns
and problems, about your costs of living and owning a house, as well as your
ability to pay your bills.
As your elected official I am tasked with the job of balancing a budget
each year. Since being elected four years ago, this is the fourth budget process I
have been involved in. As always, some budget requests made by county
departments are not funded. If I vote against a budget item request it may be
that I am not convinced or do not have enough information to justify the
funding,' as is the case with animal control.
I would like to clarify a few things that were recently printed. I want you
to know that I never spoke about a preference to fund road construction over
that of animal control. I simply desired to explore alternative ways to provide
for the needs without purchasing more property or constructing new facilities,
at a cost of $87,500.00. These alternatives included the possibility of using
property already owned by the County, continued use and improvement of the
existing site in Trenton, and changing operating procedure so current capital
investments would be sufficient until a future date.
It was stated in the comments that both, fellow Commissioner, Tommy
Langford and I "don't want to appropriate funds to increase service in this
county agency (animal control)". The fact is that just two months ago, by
unanimous vote of all the Commissioners, funding was appropriated, to hire an
additional person in the department, as well as the purchase of a vehicle, which
added an obligation of debt..
I am more convinced now than before, that the Animal Control
Department, like other departments in the County, are required to operate on
less than the full amount of funding which is requested, while still providing the
best quality service possible to the citizens of Gilchrist County. A challenging
job, to say the least.
With all that said, it has become evident to me that non-objective
reporting about issues in our County does not allow for a litmus test so that;
you, the Citizens, can make informed choices. Needless to say, you can rest
assured that a balanced budget will be passed, and within the means of what we
can afford.

Respectfully,



County Commissioner District 2

SCHOOL NEWS I


Bell Middle And
High School
Teachers Celebrate
"A+" Grade With
Back to School Luau
Anxiety, uncertainty, excite-
ment-the common emotions of
the first day of school, but for
the teachers reporting back to
the "A+" school, excitement
was the prevailing emotion for
the Bell Middle/ High School
teachers.
New school administra-
tors, Ronda Parrish and Kevin
Whitaker, welcomed back a
dedicated team of new and ex-
perienced teachers, along with
some special guests, to a Back-
to School Luau. The Luau of-
fered a number of games (which
provided abundant laughs), lots
of "catching up" conversations,
and wonderful foods! The Luau
was great fun for all! "It is such
a wonderful, positive way to
return for a new school year"
stated new middle school guid-
ance counselor, Lisa Barry.
However, it was soon back
to work for the team of teach-
ers. And although the school is
already a high achieving school,
the staff has adopted a "good to
great attitude." Taking what's al-
ready good and making it great,
for the coming school year! Be-
cause the school holds the high-
est expectations for its students
and staff, several new improve-
ment procedures are in place to
accelerate student achievement
and teacher quality.
The first being the Continu-


Bell Middle and High School teachers enjoying a back to
school ltau.


ous Improvement Model (CIM).
This quality-based program,,
used by the whole school, helps
to close the achievement gaps
between all socioeconomic
subgroups. The program treats
students individually by assess-
ing how much they're learning
at regular intervals. Based on
these assessments, students who
have achieved the mastery level
receive enrichment to challenge
them further. Others receive re-
mediation to bring their skills up
to accepted standards.
The second activity will be,
teacher morning meetings. This
year, all teachers at BMHS will
attend morning meetings from
7:45-8:15. This allows teachers
to spend the mornings addressing
various issues, all pertaining to
student gains and achievements.
The morning meetings will al-
low each team to continually
monitor student achievements


and make adjustment according
the needs of each student.
The entire staff encourages
parents to join them in this great
journey with our students. With-

Character
Council To Have
Game Booth Again
At Down Home Days
For its fourth straight year, the
Character Council of Gilchrist
Cotfnty is sponsoring a kids
game booth at the "Down Home
Days Festival," this year to be
held on Saturday, November
11th. The Council makes it easy
for any kid to win a prize at the
booth simply by tossing three or
more rings over the necks of un-
opened soda bottles. The tosser
then wins the ringed one.
The Council needs the public's
assistance with the collection for


the game booth, of one and two
liter bottles of soda. To make
it easy for you, there are three
drop-off points: Ameris Bank,
Chamber of Commerce, and
City of Trenton Bill Pay Office.
When you make a trip to Tren-
ton please support the Council
by taking the time to bring one
or more bottles of soda to any
one of the drop-off places. Your
generosity is greatly appreciated
in this endeavor as we all con-
tinue working to prove to many
that we are a county of character
by helping kids.


Somewhere out there is a
unique place for you to help oth-
ers--a unique life role for you to
fill that only you can fill.

loves children, and

The two FWC officers assisted
the Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice with capturing two of six
escaped prisoners who were
part of a work detail and had
been working near the Wal-Mart
Distribution Center in the area of
State Road 121 and U.S. 90.
FWC Officers Chris Jones and
Tracy Wildes were patrolling
the L and H Hunt Club property
when they were alerted to the
escape.
"We were only about three
miles away from the site when
we got the call," Jones said.
"On our way to meet up with the
deputies, we were flagged down
by a man who told us that one
of the prisoners was hiding in
nearby woods."
The two officers searched,
located and apprehended that
escapee.
"After turning over custody
of the escapee to Baker County
deputies, we found the second
prisoner in another wooded
area. We apprehended him also,"
Jones said.
Quick response and coopera-
tion between FWC officers and
the Baker County Sheriff's Of-
fice resulted in a timely appre-
hension of the escaped inmates.
The other four escapees were
quickly apprehended after their
escape.

Shown from left are Heidi Kamp and Pat Luka who are two of
the four Joyful Heart June birthdays..Happy birthday ladies.


At 8:30 a.m. Wednesday,
August 16th, I started carrying
things to my car to go meet up'
with other Joyful Hearts to quilt,
crochet, knit, embroider, weave,
eat, and make merry. By 9:00
a.m., having made several trips
out in the already too hot sun, I
was soaked to the skin. Beads
of sweat, not perspiration, were
running in riverlets down my
face and places best not men-
tioned. By the time I got in my
car my clothes were stuck to me
like flies on fly paper. Remind
me not to complain this winter
when I'm scraping ice off my
windshield.
By the time the air conditioner
in the car had cooled me off
some and you could handle the
steering wheel without using pot
holders I had arrived at my desti-
nation and, thank the Lord, more
air conditioning.
The community room of the
fire station was already bubbling
over with hugs and hello's and
of course the latest happenings.
Several folks who have been out
for awhile were able to make it
and that was cause for much joy
and chatter.
Twenty-six Joyful Hearts were
present and we were thankful for
each and every one of them.
Especially for Madeline Nor-
man, Alberta Swanner, Lu Row-


land, Martha Foster, and Judy
Pflueger who have been out for a
while. We missed Evelyn Wood,
who hardly ever misses, but she
had company so we had to share
her with others. Heidi Kamp
dropped by but couldn't stay be-
cause her apartment had a water
leak and she was being moved to
a dry one.:..praise God.
Four "Joyful Heart" squares
were turned in but Elaine Ne-
meth is still on vacation so we
couldn't get other squares to
make more. All of the ones
turned in were just great and
different This should be an-
other interesting quilt when
completed.
Ann Mangone, Barbara Strom,
and, I believe, Barbara Myrick
were busy working on the quilt
on the frame. Diana Lynn. who
is now up to October, worked
on her block of the month lap
quilting.
Alice Binns had the Swedish
Weavers in tow...Martha Foster.
Cathy Strom, Jackie Moore, and
Betty Hicks. Bonnie Edwards
and Mary Lou Ryder were go-
ing to work on theirs but got
side-tracked and just enjoyed
the company of others as did
several,.including me. -
Paulene Martin, Ann Taylor,
Alberta Swanner, and Judy
Pflueger were all huddled to-


Jo ful I


gether chit chatting away. Pau-
lene did some on her chicken
scratch, Ann knitted her so
called "pot holders, Alberta was
either knitting or crocheting
squares for an afghan and Judy
just relaxed and had a chance to
catch her breath.
Myrle Gilkey and Ruth Wilk-
erson were both busy crocheting
and I believe Sylvia Arthur was
as well. Madeline Noman was
going to try her hand at chicken
scratch and believe me if she had
the patience to make all those
yo-yos, chicken scratch will be
a walk in the park for her.
Lera Townsend, Pat Luka, and
Pat's mom Maxine Hale were all
embroidering and doing a lovely
job at that. Pat and Maxine were
treated to an adventure at Dis-
ney's Animal Kingdom by Pat's
son. How nice is that? Anyway,
the big scoop on that outing is
that Pat rode on the new roller
coaster, the Himalayan. She said
she could hardly, get her legs to
quit quivering so she could walk
away from the ride. You've got
grit girl! Bonnie and I are going
to Disney World next week but
you can bet your bottom dollar
we will not under any circum-
stances be riding that ride, yeti
or no yeti.
All too soon it was time to put
away our projects and get ready
for lunch. We made our friend-
ship circle, held hands and Sylvia
said the grace, giving thanks for
our food, this group of women
and our many blessings.
We celebrated the August
birthdays with an applesauce
spice cake and of course ice
cream. August is one of our
busy birthday months with six
birthdays...Lu Rowland, Sylvia
Arthur, Barbara Strom, Betty
Hicks, Bonnie Edwards, and
Ramona High. God's blessings
to all and many more birthdays
to come.
Our next regular meeting will
be on Wednesday, September
6th. Our next "Make it and give
it" day will be Wednesday, Au-


gust 30th. Time flies doesn't it?
They say the older you get the
faster it flies by. I'm so old it's
about to break the sound barrier
it's going so fast.
And speaking of "I'm so old"
those of you that know me know
how often I use that phrase,
here's a new one for you.
Bonnie and I were in Wal-mart
the other day in the school sup-
ply section. Now, I'm so old that
school supplies in grade school
meant a cigar box with two or
three pencils with erasers that
could and would be chewed,
scissors so dull they couldn't cut
butter, an art gum eraser that left
crumbs behind when you used it,
ajar of white paste which you'd
eat off your fingers and a box
of crayola crayons with eight
colors. Oh, and if you were in
the third grade a straight pen and
several points because you were
almost sure to break or lose one.
The school furnished the ink and
the ink well.
But getting back to crayons,
there were but eight colors and
we were glad to have them.
Not too many years later you
could get a box with sixteen...
unbelievable...you could color
up a storm. Next it was...thirty-
two...what was the world com-
ing to? By the time I had chil-
dren the number had doubled
and I bought crayons not only
for my kids, but for me. But as
Bonnie and I stood in Wal-mart
we both let out a gasp...ninety-
four...could it be true? Yes, it
was. We could scarcely catch
our breath. Could there even be
ninety-four colors? We opened
a box and sucked in a big gulp
of air. Yes, there were ninety-
four colors and the color was
written on the paper wrapper in
not one but three languages. I
suppose to kids today that it's
no big deal, but like I said, "I'm
so old"...
Until next time, remember...
Live a life of love. Ephesians
5:2.

To My Patients and Families at Trenton Pediatrics:


I am writing this letter to let you know that I will be leaving Trenton Pediatrics.
I will be moving from the area because I have plans to get married. During the
past five years, I have had the pleasure of watching your children grow and
develop. I have come to know many of you on a personal basis. And, although I
am leaving for happy reasons, I am sad to be leaving my wonderful patients.

We have had the good fortune to hire Dr. Cheryl Rogers, a board certified
Pediatrician. I know Dr. Rogers personally through professional association at
Shands and am very pleased that your children will have such a fine doctor to
continue their care. Cathy Vega and Peggy Ladd will, of course, continue here at
Trenton Pediatrics, as will our staff. This fine medical team will continue to
provide top quality care for your children.

Thank you for welcoming me into your community and for the confidence you
have placed in me as your child's Pediatrician. It has been a privilege and an
honor to care for your children's health. I will miss you all.


Sincerely,

Deborah A. Weyer, MD

From The

Shelves Of

The Bell

Library
The book or the junior/
teenage group that I recommend
this week is Dog at the Door
written by Ben M. Gaglio. The
dog at the door of the Animal
Ark, a veterinary clinic, was a
very pregnant golden retriever.
This is a beautifully written little
novel bringing a mystery to the
owners of the clinic and their
daughter. Why was the dog left
and who is her owner?
There is a new edition of the
nursery rhymes that we all knew
when we were children but now
Stephen White has presented
these as Barney's Favorite
Mother Goose Rhymes for our
beginning readers.
I found a new author to rec-
ommend to our adults who are
fascinated with the Inspirational
Romances. Karen Kingsbury
wrote A Time to Dance, telling
how a family can be on the
brink of falling apart because
of temptation by a younger and
attractive acquaintance
We are needing more people
who might have at least four
hours they can spare each week
to become a volunteer in the li-
brary. The work is not difficult
and you will be spending a short
time with one of the regulars un-
til you feel comfortable to be on
your own It is very rewarding
and self satisfying to meet the
public and gain new friends as
well as give of your time for a
good cause..

The best way to keep children

Please examine the choices and look at the experience and qualifications of each candidate.
EVALUATE THE PAST 4 YEARS' PERFORMANCE,
NOT THIS ELECTION YEAR PROMISES.
I have no personal projects that I would try to use my influence as your County Commissioner to get
preferential treatment to get completed before other projects that are before the Board of County Com-
.missioners.
I have no road projects that have been promised and then spend over $100,000.00 over and above the
original cost of the project of General Revenue funds to get it done, which takes away monies to repair
other county roads. I AM FOR LOOKING AT ALL OUR COUNTY ROAD NEEDS AND GET-
TING THEM PROPERLY REPAIRED SO THEY WILL BE SAFE AND IN THE BEST CONDI-
TION WE CAN AFFORD.
I do not support condemning county land owner's property using the eminent domain process
for projects, when other projects could be funded with the monies that were used to condemn
taxpayer's property.
I believe in fair and equitable treatment of all the citizens and their needs.
ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH THE CONDITION OF OUR ROADS?
ARE YOU SATISFIED WITH OTHER SERVICES OF OUR COUNTY GOVERNMENT?
HELP ELECT SOMEONE WHO WILL GIVE YOU 4 YEARS THAT ARE DEDICATED TO
YOUR NEEDS.
Let my 39 years of experience in Gilchrist County government lead us in the future.
I need your help to accomplish the task of getting elected, please go to the polls SEPTEMBER 5th
and vote for D. RAY HARRISON, JR. and I promise to give you my very best efforts to make you a
commissioner that has no personal agenda and wants our growth to be very controlIed and make sure
that we protect our environment and growth that is well planned.
I am very service oriented and will help you with your concerns of government and government
services, and will get you answers to your problems.
Please call me if you have any questions or concerns at (352) 463-2147 or go to my TWO

reports from Hazlett-Kincaid,
Inc., providers of specialized
geological modeling services,
the City of Tallahassee has con-
ceded that the sprayfield effluent,
is contributing significantly to
the increasing nutrient levels in
Wakulla Springs and will seek
another permit from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection. This scenario is
what Florida Wildlife Federa-

The Florida Wildlife Federation
will continue to participate in
the new permit's development
and will seek changes to Talla-

System to significantly lower
nitrate levels through use of
new state-of-the-art technology.
FWF appreciates the work of At-
torney General Charlie Crist and
his staff, the Wakulla County

co-plaintiffs. The Federation's
attorneys David Theriaque, Tim

Relief For Gopher
Tortoises As FWC
Changes Policy
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
Executive Director Ken Haddad
approved substantial changes to
the agency's permitting guide-
lines to reduce the number of
gopher tortoises lost through de-
velopment. Effective Tuesday,
August 15th, the FWC no longer
requires mandatory testing for
upper respiratory tract disease
(URTD) when relocating gopher
tortoises off development sites.
"FWC staff and stakeholders
agree we will improve conserva-
tion benefits for gopher tortoises
by removing, the current URTD
testing practices associated with
tortoise relocation," Haddad
said. "Our goal is to encour-
age people to relocate gopher
tortoises, and reduce the number
of tortoises lost on incidental
take sites."
Previously, anyone wishing to
build on property occupied by
gopher tortoises was required to
test them for URTD before relo-
cating them off-site. A positive
test of even one gopher tortoise
left only two alternatives: on-site
relocation or incidental take per-
mitting. FWC scientists said the
testing requirement hampered
relocation efforts that are impor-
tant to species recovery.
In May, the FWC eased
relocation requirements by ex-
tending the distance tortoises
could be relocated from 50 to
100 miles north or south of a
development site. The move
gave homeowners, developers
and consultants more options to
save gopher tortoises threatened
,by development.
FWC scientists are creating
a statewide management plan
for gopher tortoises to include
a new permitting program. If
FWC Commissioners approve it
in June 2007, the gopher tortoise
will move from a "species of
special concern" to "threatened"
on the state's imperiled species
list. For more information log.

Dear Gilchrist County Residents,,


I would like to state some facts about me, my campaign, and my job as your County Commissioner.
First, I make NO promises, nev er have and never will. My parents and my Bible taught me never to make a
promise. I tell people I will do the very best I can to help serve the people of this county. I have told residents I will
work hard to improve our road system county-wide, dirt roads and paved roads. To come up with a plan and to seek
funding for it, and that I have been working on.
We do now have a Road Improvement Committee and the committee members are: Chair of the County Commis-
sion (Tommy Langford), County Road Superintendent (Justin Watson), County Clerk (Joe Gilliam), County Admin-
istrator (Ron McQueen), County Planner (Stacy Winfield), and County Attorney (John McPherson), which I think is
good representation for the county as a committee. We are working on some recommendations for road repair and a
five' year plan to be presented to the board of County Commissioners.
I did recommend to the road committee and the Board that we set up a line item to fund future road improvement
projects. The road committee suggested $150,000.00 and the Board agreed to put $100,0,00000 for budget consider-
ations. This money would be used for road improvement as determined by the Board, not just paving but for lime
rock, road materials, and whatever is needed, and I clearly stated that to the Board. I recommended to the Board we
take the advice of the County Engineer and mix some of the\dirt roads and try to make them better and this line item
would be funds for that. We must have a plan and revenue to work on some of our county dirt roads, we cannot just
keep doing the same thing over and over, it is not the solution. We have a lot more traffic on our dirt roads and just
grading is not working.
At the August 14, 1006 board meeting I DID NOT askthe Board to appropriate funding to re-pave 4.6 miles of
county roads in the Spring Ridge subdivision. What I did say was, with this line item road improvement fund maybe
we could do some small paving projects, one of them being in Spring Ridge. The road Superintendent and one other
County Commissioner (it was not Commissioner Gentry) went to Spring Ridge subdivision a while back and gave
the Board a map of street, road footage, and an estimated cost, of re-paving 1.7 miles of County roads within the
subdivision. There are approximately 6 miles of roads in that subdivision. The Road Superintendent testified to the
road committee and to the Board that this 1.7 miles of county road is beyond patching and is in desperate need of
resurfacing. And I agree, the roads are over 25 years old. They will not get better, only worse, and the cost will
continue to rise. Yes I do support this project and others that will be presented to the Board.
Another fact! I DID NOT vote against increasing the proposed budget for the Animal Control Department. What
I did vote against, was funding $87,500.00 for the purchase of three acres of land ($37,500.00), pens and an office
($50,000.00). I think there is a better and less costly location. We have a greatly increased funding for Animal
Control in this year's budget because of the growing demand for service. Animal Control is a needed service and I do
support it.
In closing you won't have to think long and hard about voting for County Commis-
S"sioner District 4, just think Tommy Langford, I am working hard to make Gilchrist
County a better place to work and live. I am NOT a politician just a hard working
County Commissioner.

Property Tax

ton out of debt," he explained.
The property owner of sev-
eral businesses that provide
over 25 jobs to people living in
Gilchrist County explained, "If I
ran my business the way you
have run the City of Trenton, I
would be out of business," Paul
Redd explained. "The City of
Trenton needs to tax everyone
100% across the board in a
more fair tax. The City of Tren-
ton cannot continue to spend
more money than they take in,"
he explained.
Paul Redd told the board the
City needs to sell a portion of
the 20 acre tract of land in East
Trenton next to the Post Office,
set aside some of this money for
reserves and pass a 2 mill prop-
erty tax. This would be more
fair to everyone, he explained.
John Rowe, a property in-
vestor of residential parcels in
the municipality asked the
board, where are the poor peo-
ple suppose to live? He ex-
plained the tax increase is forc-
ing his rates to increase and his
tenants are considering reloca-
tion.
The retired school teacher
and coach asked Commissioner


Examle 1


Thigpen and Commissioner
Kinsey how much would this
property tax affect you commis-
sioners. Both of the elected of-
ficials explained almost $300.00
each.
Trenton resident Luther
Hughes told the board that he
lives on a fixed income and this
tax would be a burden for him
to pay.
Commissioner Arlene Wilks
explained that 5.5 mills is too
much.
"You commissioners are
compensated for every monthly
meeting that you attend. If you
do without that monthly salary
in your budget, it too will affect
you," Trenton resident Chris
Swendsen told the commission-
ers. The Mayor receives $6,000
annually plus insurance as his
salary. The Commissioners re-
ceive $416.00 a month plus
insurance.
Trenton businessman Bobby
Kincaid asked why doesn't the
city sell a piece of the 20-acre
of property east of Trenton to
get out of debt, instead of put-
ting on this high property tax?
Trenton City attorney David
M. (Duke) Lang told the board
back in 1982 when he was
Mayor, the City Commission
did away with a 2 mill ad
valorem tax in the City of Tren-
ton. The board at that time went
through their budget, line item

by line item to review and iden-
tify the services and the in-
creases that were identified
above the previous year's
budget. If the proposed line
item was too high, the board
would reduce the identified
proposed figure. He asked each
of the board members if they
had individually or as a group
went down the budget, line item
by line item, to see the in-
creases, and determine if some
of the proposed expenditures,
could be reduced.
The board determined that
they would hold another budget

Public Meeting Gives
Area Residents
Update On
Tri-County Hospital
(Continued from Page One)
Health Development & Associ-
ates, was happy to meet with the
small group of individuals and
answer their questions and let
them know where they were in
the process of receiving the Cer-
tificate of Need. The deadline
for applying for this required
certificate was August 14, 2006
and a decision will be rendered
in December of this year.
"The need keeps increasing
daily," Mr. Shupp went on to
point out, and thereare a number
of subdivisions already approved
in Gilchrist County. Meverea
Carlisle-Pope spoke up to inform
Mr. Shupp that "53 subdivisions
have been approved in Gilchrist
County." Mr. Schupp explained
that the Tri-County Hospital
will provide our region with
a hospital that is fully accred-
ited by the Joint Commission
on Accreditation of Healthcare
Organizations. This will dem-
onstrate the hospital's commit-
ment to practice and maintain
high standards of patient care
and services. They will be able
to increase patient treatment
response time in emergency
situations by decreasing emer-
gency medical vehicles need to
travel outside the region. Other
Ameris Hospitals are proud of
their emergency room response
times; patients are seen by a
nurse within eight minutes and
are seen by a physician within'
30 minutes. And 85-90% of all
medical needs will be offered
at Tri-County Hospital which is
proposed to be constructed just
north of Chiefland
Mr. Schupp still needs the
support of our community to
make this hospital a reality. He
has already received over 500
letters of support from Gilchrist
County. If you would like to
mail Mr. Schupp your letter


of support please send them
to: 193 Ventana Blvd., Santa
Rosa Beach, FL 32459. He is
planning another informational
meeting in Dixie County soon.
