City Of Trenton To Consider Increase In

Water, Sewer and Garbage Rates To

Reduce Ad Valorem Tax
Commissioner Thigpen Is Thanked By Businesses and Residents


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commis-
sion held another budget work-
shop meeting Monday evening
to look further at reducing the
proposed property tax from 5.5
mills. Commissioner Glen
Thigpen, Chairman of the Fi-
nance Committee, told the board
that he had prepared some pro-
posals that would possibly re-
duce the property tax if the
board were willing .to consider
an increase in water, sewer and
garbage service fees.
Trenton Mayor Pete
Randolph opened the meeting
and gave the rules the chairman
had established in addressing
the five-memberboard. "I have
looked this budget over and I
can't see where we can do any
better with this budget in re-
gards to the 5.5 mill property
tax," Mayor Randolph ex-
plained.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey
followed the mayor in explain-
ing, "The only way I see to re-
duce this proposed budget is cut
services. Kinsey asked the board
to allow the citizens to go line
item by line item to tell the
board which of the services they
were willing to do without."
City Manager Jered Otten-
wess presented a memorandum
to the board regarding revenue
alternatives the commission
could consider. The City Man-
ager told the board that a Fire
Special Assessment is an option


the City of Trenton could ex-
plore. The property owners in
the municipality are charged a
fee for fire service depending on
whether they are residential or
commercial. The City manager
recommended the commission
create a special assessment over
the next 4-6 months. Revenues
from that assessment would not
be available until sometime in
2007. Therefore, the revenue
should not be considered as part
of the proposed FY06-07
budget. However, it would off-
set future millage rates, Otten-
wess added. The property value
of the city property on SR 26 is
estimated at $50,000 an acre, 20
acres could be $1,000,000. The
City of Trenton has made 5
acres available to an Assisted
Living Facility. Only 15 acres
of this property would be avail-
able, @$50,000 this could raise
as much as $750,000. "I
strongly recommend not selling
fixed assets to pay for operating
costs and or debt at this time.
The city owned land is an in-
vestment that actually generates
money, capital, and equity for
the city and provides area for
expansion of city services in the
future," Ottenwess explained.
The City Manager explained
he prioritized a list of machinery
and equipment the fire depart-
ment has requested. He ex-
plained the current line item for
machinery and equipment is
$10,000. The total cost of all the


Trenton vs Bell Highlights

equipment is $23,500. He rec-
ommended no changes to the
Machinery and Equipment line
item at this time with the expec-
tation that during the FY 06-07
the City will be able to create a
fire special assessment to gener-
ate additional revenues.
Commissioner Thigpen told
the .board that even though the
City's auditor does not agree
with the City of Trenton using
an Administrative Fee to charge
the Water and Sewer Depart-
ment for services that are
funded from the General Reve-
nue Thigpen explained, there- is
noting illegal regarding this
activity.
Commissioner Thigpen ex-
plained his proposal to the
board. By increasing the water,
sewer and garbage service rates
by 10%, the estimated revenue
would be $72,000. This could, if
the board agrees with this, re-
duce the millage to around 3.42.
The commissioner added that if
a 15% increase is used, the.mil-
lage rate could drop to as low as
2.23 mills. Through this proc-
ess, more people would be in-
volved in paying the necessary
revenues that is needed by the
City of Trenton.
"I am opposed to raising the
water, sewer and garbage serv-
ice rates again this soon," ex-
plained Commissioner Bill
Clifton. The senior member of
the commission recommended
the board approving the 3.32
mill property tax and have the
delinquent bills to be paid when
ever possible. Clifton told the
board that he was also against
going over the budget line item
by line item. We have a City
Manager hired to present a pro-
posed budget to the board. We
should take this budget and ap-
prove it, Clifton added.
"I don't see how we can
reduce the millage rate to below
3 mills," Commissioner Kinsey
explained.
"I disagree with you Mr.


Clifton, involving not going
over the budget line item by line
item. The City should get their
department heads together and
go over this budget to determine
what is needed by the City of
Trenton," explained Wilbur
Bush.
Trenton businessman Paul
Redd thanked Commissioner
Thigpen for proposing the prop-
erty tax to be more evenly dis-
persed to Trenton property
owners.
Lavaughn Sessions also
thanked Commissioner Thigpen
for coming up with a way to
more evenly disperse the ad
valorem tax. "The fairest way is
the best way to implement this
tax," the Trenton resident ex-
plained.
Trenton resident Randy Rut-
ter explained that his work de-
termined that the taxable value
in the City of Trenton is Com-
mercial 55%, Residential -
38%, and vacant 7%.
Commissioner Thigpen
made a motion to have the City
Manager prepare a multi-
column ledger that gives the
board a breakdown in the per-
centages from 10-20% in rate
increases on the water, sewer
and garbage service to reduce
the millage rate. The board
voted 4-1 in favor of the mo-
tion. Commissioner Clifton
voted no on the motion.

Trenton Man Is Found Shot To

Death On Rowland Boulevard

Saturday Night


By John M. Ayers

A Trenton man was found
shot Saturday night just after
10:00 p.m. when Trenton Police
Department officers reached the
scene at 372 Rowland Blvd in
Trenton. After reaching the
scene Trenton Police Chief
Billy Smith reported he estab-
lished the crime scene and
called the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement to assist in


investigating the crime scene.
Gilchrist County Sheriff
David P. Turner arrived on the
scene a short time later and was
reported to have-taken over the
investigation from the Trenton
Police Department.
FDLE-Jacksonville Regional
Office released a bit of informa-
tion on Monday that indicated
the victim of the apparent homi-
cide was Sidney Lee Henry, 28,
of 384 Rowland Blvd in Tren-


ton. The victim was reported to
have died from gun shot
wounds. His body was taken to
the medical examiner's office
for further investigation.
Sheriff Turner reported that
Henry's death appears to be an
isolated incident. The investiga-
tion is still ongoing.
If you have any information
regarding this incident, call the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice at 463-3410.


Sheriff Asks Commission To

Reconsider His Request For An

Additional $365,000 For

2006-07 Budget


(Continued On Section Two, Page
By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County Sheriff
David P. Turner met with the
Gilchrist County Board of
County Commissioners on
Thursday, August 24, to request
an additional $365,519 for his
2006-2007 law enforcement
budget. The sheriff, when he
presented his budget, identified
a $718,000.00 increase for addi-
tional staff, automobiles and
increase in services.
Sheriff Turner told the board
that he and his department su-
pervisors worked long and hard
in preparing this budget before
submitting it to the county
commission. "There is no place
to trim fat in this budget," Sher-
iff Turner told the five-member
board of commissioners. Sheriff
asked the five board members if
he and his department were ask-
ing for too much money, or was
the board just trying to punish
him for the effort the Police
Benevolent Association has
been putting forth to get more
money for the deputies?
"Where do we stand with my
budget," Sheriff Turner asked


the board of commissioners.
The Sheriff's department
needs more than just a wage
increase, a PBA representative
explained. "We thank you for
what you have done, but we
encourage you to go back to
your budget and fund the sher-
iff's office properly," the PBA
representative explained.
Gilchrist County Commis-
sioner Mitchell Gentry asked
the Sheriff if there was still a
clerk's position in the Correc-
tions portion of the Jail that has
not been filled? Sheriff Turner
explained that was correct. He
added that the employees were
leaving the Sheriff's Office to
go to work at the Department of
Corrections and other law en-
forcement agencies around this
area. The Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office uses a lot of
part-time officers that work full-
time with the DOC.
Commissioner Gentry urged
the Sheriff to go back to his
Corrections Department and fill
those positions with the increase
in the wages and that should
help to keep officers in Gilchrist
County.


Commissioner Tommy
Langford explained that this is a
difficult job to fund all of the
increases every department
wants from the $24 million
budget.
On Monday afternoon,
August 28, the Board of Com-
missioners held another Budget
Workshop meeting beginning at
3:00 p.m.
The five-member board lis-
tened to Ron Mills, County As-
sistant Emergency Management
Director give an update on
Tropical Storm Ernesto. "We
will continue to be involved in
conference calls with the Flor-
ida Emergency Management
agency, but this area is not ex-
pected to be impacted by the
storm other than some rain and
light wind."
Gilchrist Sheriff David
Turner addressed the commis-
sion on Monday afternoon re-
garding an increase in his pro-
posed 2006-07 budget.
"The needs that the Sheriff's
Office has for the upcoming
year are still there for the things
that were previously requested,"

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Sunday afternoon as we
was sitting around the house,
Cindy Jo and I were trying to
plan our labor day holiday this
up-coming weekend. We were
concerned by that time what
Tropical Storm Ernesto would
have done to this area.
I am a weather channel
fanatic. I like to watch the
weather and try to learn why
things happen the way they do.
In relation to the TS Ernesto,
Sunday morning when we left
to go to church, the storm was
just a tropical storm. Sunday
afternoon the report indicated it
had been upgraded to a
hurricane. Then on Sunday
evening the storm was re-
classified again to a tropical
storm.
On Monday morning TS
Ernesto had battered and
flooded Haiti and was making
landfall on the southern most
portion of the island of Cuba.
The National Weather Service
reported that the Low Pressure
condition coming down from
the midwest was expected to
steer the storm to the southeast
of Florida possibly even missing
the sunshine state.
The drought condition that
the Texas panhandle has been
experiencing is becoming even
more serious. We in the state of


Florida are beginning to
experience our own type of dry
conditions. We have seen
scattered afternoon' thunder
showers in a wide portion of
Gilchrist County over the past
three to five days.
On Friday evening, scattered
thunderstorms forced rain
delays of several high schools'
football games from Ft. White
into the Gainesville area.
On Saturday morning,
scattered showers from the
mouth of the Suwannee River to
Cedar Key continued to come
ashore and rain on the coastal
and inland properties.
J and I had set Saturday
morning aside to head to the
woods to begin getting ready for
the upcoming hunting season.
We did some grass cutting,
trimming of trails and began to
break land for some food plots.
After I got rained on several
times, I decided to just go ahead
Sand finish the job I had started.
There was no lightning to worry
about and the rain kept me from
overheating.
This is the time of year when
we begin to get a hint of
possibly some cooler weather in.
our near future. By that, I mean
the afternoon temperatures don't
mpake.,it to: the 90s and, the
morning temperatures are in the
low 70s or just maybe in the
high 60s. To add a little color to
this, I have already begun to
seen yellow leaves on some area
trees. The weather is improving
each week.

Found only in Paul's letters to Timothy,
Hymenaeus is an example of a man who once had
been enlightened of the truth, tasted the heavenly gift
and shared in the partaking of the Holy Spirit and yet
found himself shipwrecked concerning the faith. It is
tragic to witness the shipwireck of one's faith when
for many years an example of fidelity is shown.
Much like a ship sailing the oceans with its tall mast
and canvas filled with wind, gliding across the waves
with the grace of its maker a person's life is
summed up in the same figure. We sail the wide seas
of life being guided by the direction of our helmsman
Jesus Christ. It is the trust and faith we have in him
that allows our lives to be directed by His will.
Hymenaeus and Alexander enjoyed this blessing
for a time. For reasons we are not told, they rejected
Jesus Christ as their guide and began to take control
of their own lives. In a figure, they threw the Lord
"overboard" and took control of their own lives,
steering as they willed. Sadly, without the guidance
of the Lord, the ship wrecked on the shoals of
falsehood, deceit and broke apart on the rocks of
apostasy. How difficult to watch precious souls
destroy themselves as they desert the faith of God.
Shipwrecks are caused by carelessness and
indifference. The seas of life are very treacherous and
can only be safely traversed with the Lord at the
helm. Jesus knows every obstacle that will be in our
path. "For we do not have a high priest who cannot
sympathize with our weaknesses, but One who has
been tempted in all things as we are, yet without
sin" (Hebrews 4:15). Without Him at the helm, our
lives will be in shambles.
The Lord knows what we need and He knows


Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
A number of readers have
written to me asking about ETFs
and the advisability of investing
in them. Since I have not ad-
dressed this issue in over two
years, let's take another look at
it. An ETF, or exchange-traded
fund, is nothing more than an
index fund or trust, which trades
as shares just like the shares of a
corporation.
The three of the more popular
ETFs are QQQQ (the Nasdaq-
100 Index Tracking Stock), SPY
(the S&P 500 Index Tracking
Stock), and the DIA (the Dow
Jones Industrial Average Index
Tracking Stock).
An ETF enables you to pur-
chase a basket of stocks within
a particular market sector by
trading a single security. In other
words, it is just another form of
a mutual fund only in this case it
would be similar to a closed end
mutual fund.
Therefore, purchasing an ETF
is really no different from in-
vesting in any other specialized
mutual fund. In my opinion, it
is essentially an abdication of
your investment responsibilities.
Having said that, let us consider
some of the inherent weaknesses
of mutual funds and ETFs and
then consider how you can
overcome those weaknesses by
investing in individual stocks.
You may be surprised to learn
that most mutual funds do not
outperform the major equity
indexes. With all their resources
how can this be? One explana-
tion is turnover.
Mutual fund managers cannot
simply invest in a couple of doz-
en stocks and then sit back and
wait for three to five years to see
how things turn out. Therefore,
the turnover of stocks held by a
mutual fund is generally high,
which often leads to poor pei-
formance given the short-term
random nature of stock prices.
Have you ever wondered why
Warren Buffett is so successful?
Could it be that his portfolio
has negligible turnover? To
their credit, ETFs do eliminate
the turnover issue because they
mimic an index. However, they
also will never exceed that in-
dex.
Therefore, you are simply pay-
ing a fee for someone to hold a
defined group of stocks for you.
There is nothing to prevent you
from duplicating an index, or
some part of an index, yourself.
Unfortunately, you cannot ex-
ceed the market's performance
if you buy the market.
As an individual investor, you
are free to invest in individual
companies and hold those in-
vestments for as long as you
wish. Buffett feels that 10 years


where we need to go. We look at the horizons of life
and are filled with doubt. We worry about'what is
over the next horizon and how to overcome the
coming storms. Our hearts are filled with fear as the
storms of life pound upon us and we cry out to the
helmsman for relief. If we simply trust in His
guidance and His will, we will find safety in the
harbor.
Hymenaeus and Alexander lost their faith. This
story reminds us that ships can sail that are hollow
inside. Their hearts were corrupted and they rejected
God's will and turned to their own desires. Paul
declares in 2 Timothy 2:18 that Hymenaeus (and
Philetus) "have gone astray from the truth saying
that the resurrection has already taken place, and
they upset the faith of some" (2 Timothy 2:18). Their
actions not only caused them to lose their souls but
also impacted others whose faith was "upset "
This lesson shows the danger of listening to the
doctrines of men. It is possible to lose one's faith as
seen in Hymenaeus, Alexander and Philetus. False
doctrine will shipwreck the faith of God's people.
Turning to the doctrines of men will cause men to
lose their way and lose their soul. They erred
concerning the truth and became advocates of
falsehood.
The clear pattern of apostasy is when Jesus Christ
is no longer the one who guides our ship through life.
These men had the faith but threw it away. Let not
Satan take control of our lives to lead us upon the
shores of destruction. Throw him in the sea and
implore the Son of God to lead your life in every
shifting wind of time. Share not in the evil of
Hymenaeus and Alexander.

"You ain't just a whistlin'
Dixie. (Southern saying)

I have always loved our
Southern heritage. But I also
appreciate people from different
parts of the country and their
heritage, accents and ways of
life. Growing up in this part of
Florida we were all exposed'to
some really neat sayings.
Usually these sayings fit nicely
into a sentence spoken. by an
older native Floridian. These
sayings have been spoken all
over the South for hundreds of
years.
One of my favorite sayings
was often used by my
grandmother, Idell Smith
Beauchamp, she was a product
of several old pioneer Florida
families and she had many,
many, colorful sayings. One of
my favorites was "Dull as
frow." My Grandmother would
be speaking of her kitchen knife
being dull and would say, "This
knife is as dull as a frow." I was
an adult before I learned that a,
frow or froe was a steal tool.
used to split cypress or cedar
shingles. As time has passed I
began picking up several of
these colorful sayings and using
them often, just so they will not
be lost.
Anyway recently I heard a
song on the radio from a CD by
The Bellamy Brothers.. The
i, lotg was entitled You Ain't Jiis
'i~it/mi'.. Dixie by David
"'Bellamy.-After listeilng to the
song and relating to it I began to


is a good horizon to have ini-
tially. Historical data indicates
that by buying high quality blue
chip stocks and holding them
for 5-10 years, you will likely
outperform the vast majority of
mutual funds and indexes...and
without the fees.
When you invest in individual
stocks, you decide what you
want to invest in, how long you
want to hold it for and when you
want to sell. With today's deep
discount brokerage houses, the
number of shares you purchase
and the subsequent commission
you pay are no longer issues in
the investment equation. So why
bother with mutual funds or the
more specialized ETFs?
The answer is usually that you
do not know what stocks to pick.
However, with a publication like
Mergent's Dividend Achievers
handbook that I have discussed
before, you have more invest-
ment ideas than you could use
in a lifetime.

Letter To The Editor
Last June, I decided to run
for the District 1 School Board
Seat. However, due to my in-
volvement with the Gilchrist
Continious Care Committee,
which is in the process of build-
ing an Assisted Living Facility
here in Gilchrist County, I felt
that I would not have the time to
devote to both the School Board
and the Assisted Living project
so I withdrew from the School
Board race.
The Assisted Living facility
project is almost worthwhile one"
and I am proud to be a part of the
committee who will bring it to
our fine community.
It is only a matter of time
before the project starts and
I have made the commitment
to the board that I will make
myself available to collect the
data necessary. for the board to
make their decisions regarding
the facility.
Thank you for allowing me to
clear up any questions about my
withdrawal from the race.

wonder where those ol'
Bellamy boys were from.
Several lyrics like, "You ain't
just a slapping your knee,"
sounded just a little too much
Like a crackers saying. After a
quick search of the internet I
found they were raised near
Dade City. The brothers still
live on the old family land in
houses next door to each other.
They both graduated from the
University of Florida and have
never lived in Nashville. Wow,
those old Florida boys did pretty
well for themselves and their
music just makes me want to
jump up and "shake a leg"
(dance).
I also found a whole pile of
Southern sayings which I
remembered hearing all my life.
Sayings such as; full as a tick,
ol' boys tough as whitleather,
ran like a scaled dog, rough as a
cob, scared my mule, limber as
a dish rag, scarce as hen's teeth,
purty as a speckled puppy,
tuckered out, a gracious plenty,
in all my born days, barking up
the wrong tree, don't bite off
more than you can chew, either
fish or cut bait, gone back on
your raisin, I do declare, in a
coon's age, haven't seen you in
a month of Sundays, argue with
a fence post. rode hard and put
up wet, like a Stuck hog, like
white "on rice;--ike water off a
duck's back, shut my mouth,
two peas in a pod.
I would like to collect sayings
from our area of Florida. It
seems all over the South
colorful sayings were and are
used often but each area has a
few of their own sayings that
are not known outside that area.
If anyone has a neat old saying
that has been passed down
through your family I would
really like to have it. It would
be a shame for us to lose these
sayings because they are an
important part of our Florida
heritage. If you would like to e-
mail sayings to me the address
is justsouthern@bellsouth.net or
mail to Cindy Jo Ayers, 207 N.

Letter To The Editor
Suwannee River Fair
Association
On August 21st, all students
who were planning on showing a
pig, cow or other livestock were
told that there was a mandatory
meeting at the Livestock pavil-
ion in Fanning Springs. This
was extremely inconvenient
and expensive being on a school
night and with gas over $3.00 a
gallon.
When we arrived we were
seated in the arena seating area.
There were literally hundreds
of students and their parents
from Dixie, Levy and Gilchrist
counties. It was extremely hot,
crowded and poorly planned. As
the meeting started (10 minutes
late) parents were instructed
to leave the students (some of
which were very young) and
go down into the arena. In the
arena the parents stood and tried
to listen, however the sound
system was so poor that we were
unable to hear what was being
said..- Then the students were
instructed to go to the tables in
the middle of the arena to pick
up their packets and sign their
names and addresses on a piece
of paper. They had to have a
parent present to do this so the


students and parents had to find
each other in the crowd and then
get into a line. There was only
one entrance and one exit, caus-
ing great confusion. There was
only one line for pigs, one line
for feeder steers and one line
for fat steers. These lines were
extremely long and it was ex-
tremely hot. One woman fainted
because she was so hot, fell
down, was injured and had to
be taken away in an ambulance.
The lines went all the way out to
the highway so they were VERY
long.
We would like to know what
the purpose of this mandatory
meeting was and why it could
not have been handled differ-
ently? It would have been much
easier on everyone if the school
advisors could have handed out
the paperwork, signed up the
students and told them exactly/
what was expected of them. The
rules would have been much
better understood and maybe
actually even heard if the groups
were smaller. If the Association
does not want the advisor doing
this, maybe they could have in-
dividual town meetings.
We tried to express our opin-
ions at this meeting and were
told that if we wanted to have an
opinion that we would have to be
on the board.
We mainly want to express
our displeasure of this whole
meeting and the way it was
handled and respectfully ask that
someone figure out a better way
to handle this in the future.

American Legion Airs
For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the following
purposes. These words begin the Preamble to the American Legion
Constitution, and those words that follow, give the meaning for our
American Legion Family. On Friday, September 15, 2006, the National
POW/MIA Recognition Day, American Legion Post 91 in Trenton, and
the Bell High School JROTC will honor those POW/MIA in a ceremony
on the Bell High School football field. Any interested Legionnaires and
veterans are requested to join them on the northwest comer of the field at
6:30 PM. Veterans, if you are a member of a Veteran Service
Organization, please wear your appropriate caps of the organization to
which you belong. The State of Florida has rigid rules on the times for
the high school football games, so come early to form up to march onto
the field for a moment of silence before the game begins. This is a time to
honor those POW/MIA that have given so much for America, so please
make a note on your calendars to be there on Friday, September 15, at
6:30 PM, and associate ourselves together, in honor of those who cannot
be here with us on that night. Remember to wear your caps.
Post 149 meets on Tuesday, September 5, at 7:00 PM, in the Post Home
on Newberry Road. The American Legion Auxiliary Unit 149 meets at
the same place and time. The polls will be open until 7:00, so make sure
you have the time to vote, then come on to the meeting.
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91, in Trenton, will have a Children and Youth
Day on September 23, with food, fun and games. Plan to bring out the
kids, grandkids, nieces, nephews, etc., and "enjoy the fun at Post 91".
On Saturday, October 14, the Post 91 Family is planning a Nifty
Fifties Sock Hop". And it doesn't mean you have to be fifty or older to
come out and enjoy yourself with some fun music and dancing. Look
around for some of the "old-style 1950s clothing", that may even still be
in your closets. Who knows, you might have saved those clothes "in case
they ever came back in style". Come out to enjoy the camaraderie and old
tunes, and help Post 91 with their fund raiser.
Don't forget the Veterans Day parade in Trenton on Friday, November
10th. The next day is the annual Down Home Days in Trenton, and Post
91 will be involved in the weekend's festivities, as usual. Be sure to
volunteer early to get the best jobs for Post 91. The Gilchrist County
Historical Society and Post 91 will be busy, along with other
organizations, putting this weekend together. The parade will honor our
veterans and the Down Home Days will be great for some of those unique
Christmas gifts this year. Mark your calendars so you won't miss a thing.
There are some Legionnaire families in our area with special needs and
needs for prayer, so keep in contact with the Post Chaplain, either to let
the Chaplain know who has needs, or to find out who has needs that you
can help with. Contact your local Posts for the number of the Post
Chaplain, and help where you can.
Again, remember the POW/MIA ceremony before the Bell High School
football game on September 15, 2006 and to meet on the northwest comer
of the field by 6:30 PM.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world each day in your
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those called to active duty, helping
out however and whenever you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, Sgt-at-Arms, Post 149

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

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.

School-To-Parent
Communication
System
On Monday, August 28th,
the new school-to-parent com-
munication system for the
Gilchrist County Schools" was
put into service. If you have a
child in school, you should have
received a phone call at approxi-
mately 6:00 p.m. telling you
about the system and asking you
to respond to a question.
If you did not receive a phone
call from this system, it means
either your school had a wrong
phone number listed for your
child or there was no phone
listed. You should contact your
child(ren)'s schools) and let.
them know your correct phone
number for future messages.


around the world.
Advances in technology en-
able companies and businesses
to fill positions with the brightest
and best educated workers from
around the world. It is impera-
tive that parents empower their
children to be prepared for this
high tech competition. Reading
with children, a specified home-
work time, participating together
in school activities all send the
message to children that parents
value education and expect and
want their children to succeed.
Our goal for all students in
all classes at Trenton Elemen-
tary School is that each student
is prepared for success in this
global competition.


This messaging system will
provide necessary information
to you as a parent about your
child, such as: registration dates,
student absences, etc. It will
also provide emergency mes-
sages, such as: school closings,
holidays, hurricanes, etc.
We hope that this new system
will enhance our communication
with you as a parent and that you
will give your support by provid-
ing your school with information
on how to reach you.

To the Gilchrist County voters,



In the Primary election on SEPTEMBER 5, 2006 you

will elect your District 2 County Commissioner for the

next 4 years.


LET EXPERIENCE LEAD YOU. I have 39 years of

experience working with Gilchrist County government and State agencies.


Under my leadership the Gilchrist County Tax Roll


was made available on the internet. I also developed the county's computerized mapping, Geographical Information System

(GIS) and 911 systems.


EVALUATE THE PAST 4-YEARS' PERFORMANCE, NOT THIS ELECTION YEAR PROMISES. I am in favor of looking

at all the county road needs and getting them properly repaired so they will be safe and in the best condition that we can afford.

I do not support acquiring county owner's property for road projects by the eminent domain process.


Please examine the choices and look at the experience and qualifications of each candidate. I am service oriented and will help

you with your concerns involving government and government services, and will get you answers to your questions. I am run-

ning for this office because I know I can do the job and believe I am the best qualified to help you and lead you into the future.


I will give you my very best efforts and make you a commissioner that has no personal agenda. We need our growth to be very

controlled while making sure that we protect our environment.


Due to the growth of the county and time restraints, it has been impossible to meet with everyone individually. If I missed

visiting with you, I apologize and would sincerely appreciate your vote.


I need your help to get elected, please go to the polls and vote for D. RAY HARRISON, JR. ON SEPTEMBER 5TH.

Thank you for your consideration and your VOTE and support will be deeply appreciated. Rivers

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Shown is Ann Hardee with the "Chicken Scratch" quilt she
has quilted. Not many of these treasures are being made any-
more.


Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, August 17th at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
The "Carpenter's Wheel" was
put together and quilting was
started. Show and tell was
enjoyable and we are putting
together squares that were made
several years ago by members of
the Chiefland Woman's Club. It
has been packed away but now
we are going to get'it ready to
finish and see what it will look
like.
Our book on the history of the
Museum should be going to the
printer very soon. We are now
putting in pictures to match their
chapters and what fun to see how
far we have come when so many
said it couldn't be done. Toni'
Collins is doing a great job with
all the typing and now we know
why we have kept a record of
every meeting and who attended
since October 7, 1983. We have


successful


kept a record of every day the
inmates have been here.
Tuesday, Greg and seven boys
came out and the boys measured,
cut, rolled and tied two 80 yard
rolls of batting and what a great
job they did. Thanks boys.
Lunch was so good with rice,
potatoes, chicken, dressing,
squash casserole, lots of others
and the dessert table was full.
Mike Brannen and three work-
ers came up from Camp Caruth.
15 members and 6 visitors
were present.

Habitat Happenings
Habitat would like to take this
opportunity to thank Joe Ander-
son of Anderson Columbia Co.
Inc., of Old Town for donating
five acres of property, providing
a road to it, and all the cement


business


for the first two Habitat homes!
What a blessing!
We also want to thank all the
volunteers behind the scenes for
all their time, hard work, and
diligence in getting Habitat to
the place we are today, Some
of the Board members have been
coming to the meetings for over
4 years. Some drive hours just
to get to the meetings and come
more than once a month. Lots of
time and sacrifice have been at
the root of this ministry, to God
be the glory!
We now have a grant writer;
Mary Lee, you're an answer to
prayer. We're in the approval
process for our first home and
family. It's really exciting. We
must raise ALL the money it
takes to build. Come join us at
a fund raising seminar provided
by Brad Nimmo, CEO of Mar-
ion County Habitat, Saturday,
September 16th, 9:00 am until
,12:00 p.m. at the First Christian
Church just off US 19 on Hwy.
346C. Lunch will be provided
so call 463-7207.
Hope to see you there. No
matter what your skill, we can
use it. Come be a part of provid-
ing a needy family a home.
God bless,

Character Forum '06
By: Geneva Cornwell
"Wow! What an evening!"
these words are simple, but ever
so. dynamic, for they describe
the sense of electricity, which
permeated inside the Trenton
Community Center during the
recent annual "Character Com-
munity Forum." The evening
was hosted by the Character
Council of Gilchrist County
and was moderated by Council
President, Mary Dunn, in the
absence of President Glen Thig-
pen. Each moment of the two-
hour conference was filled with
a spirit of enthusiasm, from the
mixture of conversational topics
as attendees arrived, to the nutri-
tious buffet meal offered; from
the short informative talks, to
the DVD presentations; from the.
distributions of free' "Character
Calls" business cards to that of a
take-home information packet.
Speakers for the evening were
Treasurer, Major Stroupe-topic:
the local Council "history";
Secretary, Geneva Cornwell
standing in for Jo Buckles,
Administrator of Ayers Health
and Rehab Center-topic: how
"Character First!" monthly


meetings are positively affecting
Mrs. Buckles' staff; Ways and
Means Committee Chair, Carl
Cornwell, speaking for Sheriff
David Turner-topic: "Use of the
Character First! 'Police Dynam-
ics' program; Community Out-
reach Chair, Jessie Lee-topic:de-
scription, with visual aid, of the
essence of how "Truth Stands
by Itself'; Advisory Commit-
tee member, Mitchell Gentry-
topic: "Ethics in Government";
Advisory Committee member,
Jim Surrency and School Board
associate, Janice Wasson-topic:
extension of character educa-
tion through the newly formed
"Neighborhood Accountabil-
ity Board" for troubled youth.
Council Advisory Committee
Chair, Pete Randolph, saluted
Carl and Geneva Cornwell for
"initiating such a fine program in
our County." Host and Hostess-
es for the evening were Council
members, Tommy Langford, Te-
resa Gentry, Mary Ann Lee, Jan
Randolph and Diane Rondolet.
The International Association
of Character Cities, Oklahoma
City, Oklahoma, produced the
DVD used. The four-segment
presentation was on Business,
Cities, Law Enforcement and
Education. The DVD presented
the testimonies of a broad sec-


tion in the United States of
people who work in different
leadership positions in their own
communities. Both men and
women spoke of how character
education is working in positive
ways., The DVD also showed
testimonies from a leader in the
Philippines and one from South
America.
Yes, the Character Forum was
a "Wow!" evening, an evening
which will have a far-reaching
effect as Gilchrist County con-
tinues to grow with other coun-
ties as a dynamic leader of moral
character through out the State
of Florida and beyond, through
the Character First! Initiative,
as each individual is touched
in some way with greater un-
derstanding that good character
crosses all boundaries and that


Gilchrist County "is a County of
Character because it's a County
that cares."

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
on to: MyFWC.com/permits/
protected-wildlife/permits.html.

Turner explained. "I urge you to
help us provide service to the
people in Gilchrist County," the
Sheriff added.
The Sheriff had his adminis-
trative assistant step up to the
podium to give the board infor-
mation she had prepared regard-
ing insurance costs for the sher-
iff's office. The assistant told
the board if the sheriff's office
has to pay for the $162,000
from the current: proposed
budget, there would just not be
enough money in the budget.
The board determined after
the sheriffs office has the in-
formation finalized regarding
the additional cost of insurance,
the commission will then dis-
cuss the details involving the
cost of the insurance.
Sheriff Turner' asked the
board for a letter to identify
what the board was not funding
as a part of the 2006-07 budget.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den made 3 motion to provide
the sheriff \with the documented
letter and hate the chairman
sign it. Commissioner Mitchell
Gentry gave a second in support
of this motion. The board voted
5-0 in favor of this action. The
letter'identifies the items in the'
budget that were not funded by
the commission.

***As yourschool board member,

Will work toward: '


*contTihting ari .xpanding vocational programs


*increasing the availability of honors and dual enrollment classes for
college bound students


*bringing back art and music to all schools (research shows these programs
increase student achievement)

*addressing concurrency to ensure school facilities keep pace with population
.growth, thereby avoiding overcrowding

*retaining high-quality employees and improving employee morale


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 Certi-
fied 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 Central Florida schools.
I have always had a reputation for giving 100% of myself to helping students achieve beyond their expecta-
tions. 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 education issues and am often
sought out by others who respect my knowledge and seek guidance concerning 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 Gil-
christ County School System continue to soar!

students miss less school after
meeting a mentor and are able
to make more positive choices.
Mr. Vickers defined mentoring
as "somebody older spending
time with somebody younger
that might need a little bit of
help and advice."
They started Project Impact
last year at the Alternative
School (now called the Practical
Career Academy); many of their
mentors were employees from
the Lancaster 'Prison and they
spent time with the kids for 18 to
24 weeks. They have seen posi-
tive changes in the lives of some
of these kids. Some will gradu-
ate who, were previously drop-
outs and others are making more
efforts to change their lives.
Deborah Douglas is looking
for individuals who can give one
hour of their time once a week.
First they are hoping to be able
to provide mentors on Tuesday
mornings, but as they have more
mentors additional opportunities
will be available. If you would
like to make a difference one
person at a time please contact
Deborah Douglas at (352)463-

open doors and create a lifetime
of possibilities for OUR KIDS.

The purpose of the Teacher Ca-
det program is to encourage stu-
dents who possess a high level of
academic achievement and the
traits found in a good teacher to
consider teaching as a career.
We are busy right now on two
projects. We have groups work-
ing on puppet shows and "big.
books." The themes of these
projects are Aigh self-esteem.
Upon completion of these proj-
ects we will be performing for
students at Trenton Elementary
School.
In the near future we will
begin doing observations in


day care, preschool, elementary,
and middle school classrooms.
We are looking forward to an
exciting school year filled with
fun and meaningful learning op-
portunities.

Thank God for dirty dishes;
they have a tale to tell. While
other folks go hungry, we're
eating pretty well. With home,
and health, and happiness, we
shouldn't want to fuss; for by
the stack of evidence, God's
very good to us.

Trenton Scores In
Second Overtime To
Escape With Win
The Trenton Tigers traveled
to Bell Friday night as the two
Gilchrist County teams opened
their 2006 regular seasons. This
game was as tight as a state
championship title contest as
both teams scored often.
In the end of the first half,
the Bulldogs held a 14-7 edge.
Late in the fourth quarter,
Bell came back and scored a
touchdown to tie the game at
34-34. The Bulldogs had the
opportunity to seal the win but a
dropped pass gave the Tigers
new life in overtime.
Trenton quarterback Durell
Henry in the second overtime
gave the Tigers the victory
when he dashed into the end
zone on a short run. The junior
signal call led the victors on
offense with 130 yards on 21
carries. He scored two
touchdowns on offense and a
third on a 55-yard punt return.
Trenton's Brandon Mathis had a
tremendous effort for the 1-0
Tigers as he ran for 150 yards


The Bulldog's No. 11, Devin Taylor is shown doing a great job for the Bell team. The
senior running back is a playmaker for the Bulldogs.

UF Study Shows How
Cigarette Smoke
Blocks Cell Repair
Cigarette smoke can turn
normal breast cells cancerous by
blocking their ability to repair
themselves, eventually trigger-
ing tumor development, Univer-
sity of Florida scientists report.
While some cells nonetheless
rally and are able to fix their
damaged DNA, many others
become Unable .to access their
own cellular first aid kit, accord-
ing to findings from a UF study
published today (Aug. 21) in the
journal Oncogene. If they sur-
vive long enough to divide and
multiply, they pass along their
mutations, acquiring malignant
properties.
Past research has been contro-
versial. Tobacco smoke contains
dozens of cancer-causing chemi-
cals, but, until more recently
many studies found only weak
correlations between smoking
and breast cancer, risk, or none
at all. Those findings are in-
creasingly being challenged by
newer studies that are focusing
on more than just single chemi-
cal components of tobacco, as
past research often has done. In
the UF study, researchers instead
used a tar that contains all of the
4,000 chemicals found in ciga-
rette smoke.' -. ,-
"Our study suggests the mech-
anism by which this may be
happening," said Satya Narayan,
Ph.D., an associate professor
of anatomy and cell biology at
UF's College of Medicine. "This
is basically the important finding
in our case: We are now describ-
ing how cigarette smoke con-
densate, which is a surrogate for
cigarette smoke, can cause DNA
damage and can block the DNA
repair of a cell or compromise
the DNA repair capacity of a
cell. That can be detrimental for
the cell and can lead to transfor-
mation or carcinogenesis."
In their study, funded by the
National Institutes of Health and
the Miami-based Flight Atten-
dant Medical Research Institute,
UF researchers exposed normal
breast epithelial cells to cigarette
smoke condensate-a tar derived
from a machine that literally
"smokes" a cigarette in the labo-
ratory-and found the cells ac-
quired mutations .characteristic
of malignant cells.
The scientists say DNA repair
appears to be compromised
when chemical components of
smoke activate a key gene. That
gene interacts with an enzyme
that plays a crucial role in re-
pairing damaged DNA, prevent-
ing it from doing its job. The
cell, despite its mutated form,
can then multiply wildly. A cell
with damaged DNA has one of
two fates, said Narayan, also a
member of the UF Shands Can-
cer Center.
"Its DNA repair machinery
can be enhanced and it can fix
the damaged DNA and restore
genomic stability, or if the DNA
repair machinery becomes com-
promised within the cell, then
it can lead to an accumulation
of mutations because the DNA
is not fixed before the cell be-
gins to divide," he said. "The
mutation then becomes a per-
manent part of the genome and
causes genomic instability, and


genomic instability can bring
about several cellular dysfunc-
tions, and one of them can lead
to tumor formation."
Other UF research led by
Xingming Deng, M.D., Ph.D.,
and published last month in the
Journal of Biological Chemistry
revealed that nicotine activates a
protein in cancer cells that helps
them live long, spread to new
sites and grow resistant to che-
motherapy.
Narayan's team has previ-
ously studied cells that were
exposed to the chemicals found
in cigarette smoke yet did not


die. In general, about two-thirds
of these cells will be growth-
retarded, and some actually ac-
quire cancer-like characteristics,
he said. .
"Some of these cells that
survive are really acquiring
true mutagenic characteristics,"
Narayan said. "A defect in only
one cell is important for growth
of a full-blown tumor. You don't
need 1,000 or 1 million cells to
be affected. Only a single cell
which may have genomic insta-
bility due to compromised DNA
repair capacity of the cell can be
sufficient for a tumor to develop.
That has to be considered also
when we do these kinds of stud-
ies." !
Narayan said the next step will
be to find ways to manipulate
cells' capacity for DNA repair
and to prevent tumor formation.
Meanwhile, he cautions
people to avoid smoking, es-
pecially teenagers. A study last
year found teenage smokers are
at especially high risk of breast
cancer development later in life,
he said.
"Teenagers should realize
they are inhaling 4,000 chemi-
cals, and these chemicals can do
so much harm in the body, not
only posing a breast cancer risk
but for so many other things,"
Narayan said. "The consequence
of these chemicals is not appar-
ent in one day or two days or in
months; it takes years and years
for cancers to develop. Once
the gene is damaged and sitting
there it's going to provide some
harmful effect later on."
Jose Russo, M.D., a researcher
at the Fox. Chase Cancer Center
in Philadelphia who has Studied
how breast epithelial cells trans-
form after exposure to the chem-
ical benzo[a]pyrine, which is
found in tobacco smoke, called
the UF findings very interesting.
"We found significant alteration
in many of the chromosomes in
these cells induced by the effect
of benzo[a]pyrine," Russo said.
"We were the first ones to dem-
onstrate in normal-like epithelial
cells this compound produced a
transformation. Cigarette smoke
condensate contains more than
one compound, so the UF ex-
periment is more similar to the


way any human being would
be exposed to the carcinogens.
It mimics the human situation
more closely."

Dear Gilchrist County Voter:
My name is Rob Rankin and I am a candidate for School Board in District 3. For
those of you who do not know me, I was raised in Gilchrist County and gradu-
ated from Bell High School in 1982. I have been married to my high school
sweetheart, Natalie Shepherd for over 20 years and we have 3 children. I went
to college and have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in education. I
started teaching in 1990 in Gilchrist County and taught in the classroom until I moved to a
school based administrator in 1996. I feel at this time I can take my experience from working
in our schools to the District 3 board seat and make edu-
cated and informed decisions because of my vast insight
into our schools.' I am familiar with our facilities, personnel,
budget and curriculum. Since I have taught at the elemen- -Bj
tary, middle and high school levels, I know the educational
needs of students from Pre-K through graduation. When
setting new policies or changing old ones, I feel my hands-
on experience will be invaluable. '


I have a sincere desire to use my knowledge and depth of ,
experience to help provide a solid education for all of our
children. I will always keep our student's needs above all ,Ma
others when deciding on issues. I will gather as much infor- .,
mation as possible about an issue before making a decision J .
on it. Through the benefit of working in our school system, i
I know what will and will not work, which sets me apart L
from the other candidates. I believe in standing firm when
convicted of something, even if it means standing alone. I
will be fair and honest to all district-wide. SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT 3
(VOTE FOR ONE)
I humbly ask that you put your trust in me in this O Dr. John D. Frazier
important position of service and vote: f Robert G. "Rob" Rankin

Lake City
Community College
Welcomes Back
Faculty And Staff
For It's 59th Year
The Lake City Commu-
nity College (LCCC) chapter of
Florida Association of Commu-
nity Colleges (FACC) welcomed
back LCCC faculty and staff for
its 59th year of offering a qual-
ity education to the residents
of Baker, Columbia, Dixie,
Gilchrist. and Union counties.
What better way to welcome
them than with a picnic style
luncheon.
Lake City Community Col-
lege FACC members includ-
ing Myrtle Kerce, Donna Lee,
Debra Harrison, Dena Davis,
Judy Wilson, Mary Newsome,
Jennifer Pauwel, Doris Godwin,
and Nonie Silcox served up cold
cut sandwiches with all the trim-
mings to a packed dining room
in the Lobo Cafe.
FACC also held a member-
ship drive for new members
welcoming three new members,
two renewals, and several pend-
ing applications representing
80 percent of faculty and staff.
They were also collecting do-
nations for one of their annual
nonprofit projects, "shoes and
socks" needed for the children
of Columbia County.

LCCC Welcomes
Back Staff With
The "Famous" Pork
Chop Luncheon
This fall Lake City Com-
munity College (LCCC) began
its 59th year of educating the
students- from its five-county
district comprised of Baker,
Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist and
Union counties. To welcome
back LCCC professors and staff,
Norman Stephenson, Union
County resident and former
LCCC trustee, treated them to
the now "famous" pork chop
luncheon.
Stephenson and his "right
hand cooks" better known as
"the fabulous four," prepared
inch thick smoked pork chops,
along with green beans, dirty
rice, rolls and drinks. The two
long lines of hungry employees
were served by LCCC student
ambassadors in the Howard
Gymnasium.
This is a much anticipated
activity that LCCC employees
look forward to each year. The
college appreciates the generos-
ity of Stephenson and his crew
for a smoking good job" well
done!

The Joy Of
Christmas
It's that time again, The Bell
Christmas Parade Committe is in
full swing with the planning of
the 26th annual Bell Christmas
Parade to be held on Saturday,
December 2, 2006. We have
chosen, "The Joy of Christmas"
as our theme for this joyous time
of year as we celebrate Christ-
mas in our little Town.
As in tradition, the Bell
Christmas Celebration will
kickoff with the street side Arts
and Crafts Booths opening at
8:00 a.m. Line-up for the parade
starts at 1:00 p.m. and the Parade
at 2:00 p.m.
Applications are now avail-
able at the Town Hall office/
Train Depot between the hours
of 8:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m. If for
some reason you were not on
our mail-out list and you cannot
come by to pickup an applica-
tion contact (386) 935-1325 and
one will be mailed to you. The
deadline to return the application
is November 28, 2006.
The Christmas Parade Com-
mittee requests only one Santa
in the parade. His elves have
checked his date book and Santa
will sleigh his way to the depot
right on time to the delight of
all of us.
Again this year we will have
trophies in the following catego-
ries: Business, Civic/School Or-
ganizations, Individual/Family,
and churches. Trophies for the

(with updated Coggins test) will
also be awarded immediately
following the parade. And re-
member the 'Traveling' trophy
for the best decorated Gilchrist
County Emergency Vehicle.
The Town of Bell is sponsor-
ing a "Town Lighting" on No-
vember 25, 2006, at 6:30 p.m.
there will be music and refresh-
ments for your enjoyment as we
light up the Town. Bring your
lawn chairs and your camera and
enjoy some of our local talent.
We would like to encourage the
businesses in the Town of Bell
to get on board and decorate
their business, as again this year
we will be recognizing the best
decorated.
There is also planned a "Tree
of Remembrance" to remember
our loved ones, to be located in
the Town Hall/Train Depot. You
can come by and hang your or-
nament in remembrance starting
November 20th, or we will be
glad to hang it for you. What a
wonderful way to remember our
love ones that are no longer with
us this Holiday Season.
If you participated last year,
you'll certainly remember the
fun we had, so spread the news
and get your friends and family
involved this year.

other provision of tobacco to minors,

is expected to reduce tobacco con-
sumption. As a result, some long-term

health and insurance programs are
probable, but indeterminate. Also,
minor revenue loss to state govern-
