Citizens Speak Out About Rising

Property Taxes And Tri-County

Hospital CON Being Denied


County officials were at the Legis-
lative Delegation last Wednesday to
request help on items of local inter-
est. Gilchrist County's Legislative
Delegation is made up of State Rep-
resentative Debbie Boyd of Newber-
ry and State Senator Steve Oelrich of
Gainesville. Both Boyd and Oelrich
are new to Tallahassee as they were
recently elected. Boyd fills the seat
of former Rep. Dwight Stansel. Sen.
Oelrich fills the seat of former Sena-
tor Rod Smith.
Representative Boyd from District
11 chaired the hearing which was held
at the County Commission Board
Room in the Gilchrist County Court-
house Annex. Rep. Boyd opened the
meeting welcoming all those who
attended the meeting. She also an-
nounced the councils and committees
that she has been appointed to serve
on when the session opens in Talla-
hassee. Representative Boyd will be
serving on the Committee on Agri-
business, Committee on Health Qual-
ity and Council for Environmental
and Natural Resources. Her district
includes all of Gilchrist, Lafayette,
Suwannee and parts of Alachua, and
Columbia Counties.
Senator Steven Oelrich who repre-
sents District 14 in the Florida Senate
will be serving on the Higher Educa-
tion Committee where he will act as
chairman of that committee. He will
also serve on the Social Responsibil-
ity Policy and Calendar Committee,
Commerce, Ethics and Elections
Committee, Governmental Opera-
tions Committee, Higher Education
Appropriations Committee, Florida
Legislative Committee on Intergov-
ernmental Relations Committee.
Sen. Oelrich represents all of Gil-
christ, Alachua, Union, Bradford and
parts of Putnam, Marion, Levy and
Columbia Counties.
The topic of the recently turned
down hospital which was to be built
in Chiefland was a big topic at the
hearing. Rick Weeder, Jean DeCosta,
and Norm Conti were among those
who attended to bring the importance
of the proposed hospital to the atten-
tion of the Legislative Delegation.
Ameris Health Systems who were
planning to build a 60-bed hospital in
Chiefland has been denied a Certifi-
cate of Need by AHCA (Agency for
Health Care Administration) Many
members of the Gilchrist AARP at-
tended the meeting in support of the
hospital.
County Commissioner D. Ray
Harrison, Jr. spoke in behalf of the
need for the hospital. He told the
representatives the history of trying
.to bring a hospital to this area. Rep.
Boyd and Sen. Oelrich stated that
they would look into the denial of the
hospital and see if there is anything
they can do to help. Both agreed that
the area is growing and understood
the need for a medical facility in the
Tri-County area.
The concern over tripled property
taxes brought local citizen Jackie
Class a retiree formally of Pinellas
County to the meeting. Mrs. Class
suggested to the delegation that the

state should be using a sales tax or
flat tax or at least put the $25,000
homestead exemption on the second
$25,000 so that everyone in the state
paid a share not just the land owners.
She also stressed her concern for the
people living on small fixed incomes
and how hard these large property tax
increases are going to hurt them.
Those attending the meeting were
told by the delegation that the prob-
lem of growing property taxes is
being looked into on a state level at
this time. Senator Oelrich said that it
would be detrimental to small coun-
ties if the $25,000 exemption was
doubled. Sen. Oelrich said that he
would dare say, "We will not be sit-
ting here next year with the same tax
system as we have this year."
Gilchrist County Clerk of Court
Joe Gilliam asked the delegation for
additional funds for the continuing
courthouse improvements. Mr. Gil-
liam explained that the addition to
the courthouse is almost complete
but they need extra funds to buy a
generator and for paving of a parking
lot. Mr. Gilliam explained the county
owned property,that could be turned
into the parking lot but needed help
funding the project. Mr. Gilliam ex-
plained that on days when court is
held, there is not enough parking. He
also addressed state mandates which
require each county clerk's office to
remove social security numbers from
all documents. He explained that if
his office has to go back to the 1920s
and remove these numbers from each
and every record it will be very ex-
pensive and time consuming.
Damon Leggett, Gilchrist County
Property Appraiser also spoke to the
delegation about the current property
tax situation in the state. Mr. Leggett
asked the newly elected legislators
to take a serious look at the current
state mandated regulations which his
office has to work under. Mr. Leggett
said, "Please look at this problem, it
is affecting people's livelihood."
Sheriff David Turner spoke in fa-
vor of a hospital in Chiefland. He said
having one so close by would help his
office's budget. He asked Rep. Boyd
and Sen. Oelrich for their assistance
in supporting the effort to bring a
Lake City Community College sat-
ellite campus into Gilchrist County.
Sheriff Turner spoke of the growing
problem with mental health inmates.
He said that the jail is overcrowded
and is being used to hold Baker Act
and other mental health inmates for
longer periods of time before they are
transported to proper treatment facili-
ties. In a memo given to the legisla-
tors Sheriff Turner along with other
Florida Sheriffs are requesting that a


dc&.ignatlon Le put on Florida driver
licenses and identification cards of
sexual offenders and predators. The
memo stated that this will provide
for a quicker identification of sexual
offenders and predators for law en-
forcement.
A representative of the court sys-
tem was on hand to make a plea for
an additional judge for the 8th ju-
dicial circuit. Ted McFetridge, the
Court Administrator for the 8th ju-
dicial circuit, asked that the funding
be provided at the state level for a
judge in this circuit. The 8th circuit
has been approved for an additional
judge but the state has to provide the
funding for the position.
Superintendent of Schools, James
E. Vickers told the legislators the
regulation of the school calendars by
the state was not in the best interest
of individual school districts. He also
spoke of the mandates which may re-
quire school districts to test each child
to see if they are gifted. He spoke of
the expense of such testing. Sen. Oel-
rich praised the local school system
for their all A schools. Mr. Vickers
also asked the legislators to allow the
Drop Program for school administra-
tors. Mr. Vickers said, "We are hav-
ing to move young administrators up
who are not ready."
Randy Durden, Chairman of the
Gilchrist County Board of County
Commissioners requested funding
for a new county jail. He told Sen.
Oelrich and Rep. Boyd that Gilchrist
County has the oldest jail in the
state. The construction of a new jail
is expected to cost between 7 and 8
million dollars according to Mr. Dur-
den. He also went on to say that the
County Commission also supported
an area hospital. He also spoke of his
concerns about the property tax is-
sue. He said that one size doesn't fit
all when it comes to property taxes.
Senator Oelrich asked Mr. Durden if
Gilchrist County expected to fund at
least part of the new jail facility. Mr.
Durden stated that the county will be
able to fund part of the project.
County Commissioner Tommy
Langford spoke of road issues in the
county. He explained that the county
had 465 miles of dirt roads and he
requested money to pave them. He
stated that county roads were his
main concern.
Judge Ed Philman who had court
during the first part of the hearing
requested funding to pave a parking
lot for the courthouse. He stated that
the county employees are parking in
a dirt parking lot at this time.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
was also on hand to hear the concerns

Bell High School Senior Exemplifies

"Self-Control" As December

Character Council Trait


by: Geneva Cornwell
Learning and understanding about
self-control helps everyone win the
most important battle of all--the bat-
tle to master themselves. Impulsive
behaviors that lead to anger, drunk-
enness, obesity, overspending, and
other anti-social behaviors are gov-
erned by self-control. Learning to
apply self-control allows the student
of this character quality to not act
impulsively, not equate desires with
rights by setting individual limits and
seeing anger as a sign that something
is wrong and walk away from things
that aren't right.
Controlling one's thoughts, actions,
attitudes and feelings is the founda-
tion of self-control. A person should
keep a healthy balance between the
mind (thoughts), the will (decisions)
and the emotions (feelings). The true
test of self-control is not external, but
internal. When under pressure, self-
control rejects frustration. When
one's reputation is questioned, self-
control rejects bitterness and anger.
When offended, self-control quickly
defuses the situation and rejects re-
taliation. In each instance, self-con-
trol recognizes that there is a better
way to' handle situations than to rely
solely upon the mind or the emotions.
Self-control allows a person to reject
ineffective ways of dealing with cir-
cumstances and to choose a more
positive course of action.
With the above explanation of self-


Virginia DeBoard
control so clearly given, it is easy to
see why the featured personality of
the month for the Character Council
is Miss Virginia De Board. This Bell
High School senior is the daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Carl De Board of Gil-
christ County. Virginia is presently
eighteen years old and has wisdom
beyond her years. She believes that
a person "will not get very far if self-
control is not used" in situations in-
volving other people. She relates that
when there is an issue to be handled,
it's handled correctly with self-con-
trol. She admits, "life is a lot easier"
during a disagreement "when (unnec-
essary) comments are kept to oneself
and no physical attacks are made."


At nine years old, Virginia came
to Gilchrist County with her parents
and two siblings, by way of Havre
'D' Grace, Maryland and Marathon,
Florida. She holds rank of 2nd Lieu-
tenant in the JROTC program at
Bell High School and plans to study
nursing in college. Besides her high
school studies, she is also a multi-
tasked employee at the Pot '0' Gold
Shop in High Springs. Along with
school studies, the JROTC and her
job, her added responsibility is as-
sisting her grandmother, when she is
in Florida, who owns property in the
south-central part of the State.
Along with demonstrating to class-
mates, teachers, her employer and
customers her trait of self-control,
Miss DeBoard practices what she has
learned from others about self-con-
trol as she is currently in her fourth
year participating in JROTC Drill
Meets, along with being a flag bearer
in the annual JROTC Veterans' Day
programs. What she has learned can
be best described in her own words:
"Using self-control is well worth it,
for not using it gets you nowhere."
It is the sheer pleasure for this au-
thor to be granted time in learning
more about our community through
its citizens; how each lives, works,
studies, and makes every effort to
display what it takes to prove to those
on the outside, that our journey of
moral character is life-long and that
our County is a county of character
because it cares.


Gilchrist County To Receive Grant

For Bell Fire Equipment


The United States Fire Adminis-
tration's "Assistance to Firefighters
Grant" has awarded Gilchrist Coun-
ty's Bell Fire Department a Vehicle
Acquisition Grant in the amount of
$249,000.00. The grants are part of
the 2006 Assistance to Firefighters

emergency medical service organiza-
tions improve their ability to protect
the public and first-responder person-
nel from fire related hazards. Florida
United States Senator Mel Martinez
recently announced that Gilchrist
County Was one of several rural fire
rescue programs that will be receiving
one of these grants. "The Department
of Homeland Security announcement
is good news for these departments.


The investment translates into criti-
cal improvements in the areas of life
and property protection services,"
said Martinez. "Safety is a top prior-
ity for these community departments
and these grants will help each meet
their mission."
Gilchrist County Emergency Man-
agement's Ron Mills appeared before
the Board of County Commissioners
in the December 4th meeting to an-
nounce the grant had been verbally
received and to request the Board to
accept the terms wherein the Coun-
ty's responsibility is to provide 5%
($12,450.00) of the total cost and the
Federal share consists of the 95%
e in service in July of this year and
North Gilchrist (Station 2) recently


placed their new Brush Truck in ser-
vice since September.
Congratulations to Gilchrist Coun-
ty and a special thank you to the
United States Fire Administration
and their "Assistance to Firefighters
Grant Program."

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
As Christmas Day came'on us in
2006, so was the blessing of the rain
that we experienced on Monday. There
was something different about this
rain; it didn't seem to be turning cold
as the day came on. The temperature
rose to the mid 70s and by the middle
of the afternoon the sun had appeared
and the breeze began to blow. J was
hoping the wind would calm to al-
low he and Lyndsay to go fishing on
the airboat Monday night. They went
on Saturday night with friends and
remarked on how beautiful the calm
night and the clear water appeared.
We had a very enjoyable Christmas
as we spent time with J, Lyndsay and
Mrs. Doris Beauchamp on Christmas
Eve evening in our home. We enjoyed
oysters, fish chowder, corn chow-
der and many other tasty delights.
On Christmas Day Adam and Car-
rie were coming to Trenton to enjoy
lunch with us at Cindy Jo's eldest
brother, Lloyd Jr, and Ibra Joan Beau-
champ's home in Chiefland. We also
enjoyed visiting with John and Lan
Beauchamp and Mrs. Doris Beau-
champ during lunch. Lloyd Jr. had
killed a young pig and together with
the deep fried turkey, sweet potatoes,
salads, deserts and so much more,
we all enjoyed a delicious lunch.
I guess I was the most surprised
with .Christmas as Cindy Jo and I
welcomed the kids back to the house
Monday afternoon to open our gifts
together. This is always an enjoyable
time as we are surprised by some of
the gifts from under the Christmas


tree and by those things that just
don't seem to make it under the tree.
As we all got ready to sit down and
open our gifts, Carrie opened the
back door and my Christmas surprise
came easing in, peeping around the
comer of the chair. Yes, it is a 10-
week-old beagle puppy. I was so sur-
prised that I still haven't come up with
a respectable name for the puppy.
I took her outside and introduced
her to Bo, the German Shepherd that
wanted to take her head off when
he first saw her; but Bo too is get-
ting use to the new pet at our house.
Things were quiet in Trenton
on Tuesday as we came back to
work to publish one more Gilchrist
County Journal in 2006. Yes, it is
over, the year that began just yes-
terday is already past. The Gilchrist
County Journal staff wishes every-
one a Happy and Safe New Year.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
The clock had just struck midnight
and I was considering calling it an
evening when there arose such clatter
that I jumped to my feet to see what
was the matter.
You would think by now I would
have learned. "Nice to see you, I
was getting worried," I said, with a
sideways glance at the old calendar.
"Reindeer were a bit rusty. Besides,
landing a sleigh on a rooftop in
Florida without snow is no easy task.
Having a chimney would also help,
not to mention a fireplace. No matter,
get your notepad," he said settling
back at my desk, "and I will tell you
what is hot this year in the land of
make-believe."
We in the toy industry may have
trotted out block busters, such as TMX
Elmo, but they may not be enough to
pull the industry out of a slump. The
toy industry chalked up $12.7 billion
in sales this year through October, a
number that was down 2.4 percent
from a year ago, according to market
research firm NPD Group.
- That means that November and
December will have to bring in sales
of $9.1 billion if the industry hopes
to at least match last year's total of
$21.8 billion.
Sales of that magnitude could be
a stretch since according to NPD
November and December usually
account for 33 to 37 percent of annual
sales, not the 42 percent needed to
match last year's performance.
Standard & Poor's recently
reported that children are losing
interest in toys at younger ages and
turning to video games, DVDs, iPods,
the Internet and instant messaging
for entertainment. As a result, the
traditional toy industry has suffered
sales declines each year since 2002,
and video games will continue as a
permanent competitive pressure.
Nonetheless, there is still hope
for traditional gifts such as Barbie.
Mattel reports that Barbie's sales soi
far this year haVe been, up'ftr the first
time in several years; with one survey,
placing Barbie as the most requested
toy for girls, while TMX Elmo was
the first for boys.
From an investment viewpoint,
Mattel's shares have an intrinsic value
of $33 using the discounted earnings
approach and $34 if you use a free
cash flow to the firmnn approach. The
recent closing price on the shares was
$22.72. Look for earnings in 2007 of
$1.48 per share.
Using the trailing twelve month
(TTM) multiple, or P/E ratio, of
15.46 would give you a target price
of $22.88. Therefore, although the
potential is there, the shares are
unlikely to show much appreciation
for at least two years. However,
Mattel's dividend yield is a generous
2.87 percent.
The situation is a little more
encouraging for Hasbro, Mattel's
number one competitor. The intrinsic
values are $33 and $45 respectively.
The recent closing price for the shares
was $27.43. My earnings estimate
for 2007 is $1.54. Using the current
TTM multiple or P/E of 23.65 yields


Paul's Boldness In The Midst Of Idolatry
(Kent Heaton)


As Paul waited in Athens for Silas and Timothy, his
heart was stirred by the many idols he saw and temples
erected to worship gods created by man. He took every
opportunity to speak the words of truth to a city given over
to creations devised by men as he preached in the
synagogues and marketplaces that Jesus was the Christ
risen from the dead. Encountering men of philosophy and
asked to explain this new doctrine, Paul was taken to a
rocky hill called the Areopagus. This hill is located at the
foot of the Acropolis and above the Athenian Agora. From
the vantage point of the Areopagus, Paul could see the
temples of the Acropolis: The Erechtheum, the Propylaea
and the Temple of Nike Apteros. At the foot of the
Areopagus spread the vast network of the Agora or market
place. This was the "civic center" of Athens that contained
shops, government buildings and temples to various gods.
He could see the Temples of Ares, Apollo and Hephaestus
mixed among the Stoas of Zeus, Hermae and Attalus.
Paul stood in the heart of pagan worship and said, "God
that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he
is Lord of heaven and earth, dwelleth not in temples made
with hands; Neither is worshiped with men's hands, as
though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life,
and breath, and all things." (Acts 17:24,25) There could
have been no clearer statement of courage than when Paul
challenged everything the people of Athens believed in.
The temples were beautiful beyond description with their
ornate depictions of all that made the gods so important to
them. The majestic buildings surrounding Paul stood as
monuments to the wisdom of man in design and purpose.
Lost in this wealth of man's achievement was the
knowledge of the God who made the world.
The apostle appealed to men of Athens to consider the


maker of the world and how He would be worshipped. This
God could not be contained within the walls of man's
devising. Man sought to bring the gods to their level of
dependence but the Almighty Creator did not need the puny
efforts of men to be the Almighty. The existence of man
was founded upon the wish of the God proclaimed by Paul
as "He gives to all life, breath, and all things. (v25) In the
midst of heathen worship the true God of man was given
honor and glory. This could not be given with the gold or
silver or stone that Paul saw all around him. Glory to God
could only be given by the obedient faith of those who
would believe in resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The ruins surrounding the Areopagus stand as silent
witness to the words of Paul. The Agora is little more than
broken rocks with most of the temples destroyed. The
Acropolis that stood so majestically before Paul is a hill
filled with the carcass of man's worship of himself. The
words of Paul endure today as the power of the gospel of
Jesus Christ.
Jesus told the woman in John 4, "God is Spirit, and
those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth."
(v24) Men today erect temples to themselves in trying to
find ways to worship God. They create philosophies that
tickle the ears of those who would want to worship God in
their own way. Hundreds of churches have been created by
man to satisfy a thirst for man-made worship. The message
of Paul to the men of Athens was not so much the
condemnation of the temples but the consequence of
rejecting the only true God and the only true way Jesus
Christ. Without obedience to the will of God, man
worships man. (Matthew 7:21-23) Jesus is the only way.
(John 14:6) The temples of man will fall in decay but the
word of the Lord endures forever.

Letter To The Editor
On the evening of December 18th,
Gwen developed a potentially life-
threatening cardiac arrhythmia. Gil-
christ County EMS was called and
they responded very quickly.
Paramedic Mayra Moore and EMT
Ashley Cooper responded to this
emergency and they were nothing
less than outstanding in the perfor-
mance of their duties. They were
very efficient and did not waste any

ment and instituting the appropriate

Mayra and Ashley were very pro-
fessional, respectful, caring, confi-
dent in their decision making, and
very reassuring to us. It was obvious
they were in complete control of the
situation and could manage any com-
plication that might occur.
This Paramedic and EMT are a
credit to their profession and asset
to Gilchrist County EMS. I believe,
we in Gilchrist County are extremely
fortunate to have these health care
professionals in our midst.
Gwen and I thank them so much
for the excellent care that was given
and we comment them for a job well
done.
Sincerely,

At Thanksgiving and Christmas he
smoked wonderful double smoked

Due to his workload, Post 91 Commander Kulman Judah has stepped down and
Post 91 Adjutant, Bill Dampier has taken on Post Commander as well. Past Post
Commander, Shelby McKinney is now the First Vice-Commander. Congratulations
are in order and support from all the Post 91 members is most important to keep
everything rolling smoothly along. Continue towork with the Post Officers to keep
Post 91 on course.
With the holidays half over, American Legion Posts 91 and 149, members and Post
Officers, hope everyone had a safe and Happy Christmas, and wish for everyone, an
equally safe and Happy New Year. Continue to pray for our Armed Forces and our
leaders too, each and every day.
Our Legion Posts are losing members to Post Everlasting. It is a transfer we
cannot stop, but we can remember these Legionnaires in our hearts, and we can
remember to include their families in what we do in the American Legion.
Some of the Legionnaires that Trenton's Post 91 lost this year were Joe Dixon,
Alan Smith, Sam Ferguson, David Guice, Nathan Kidd, Bill Brackens, and Ralph
Lind. Newberry Post 149 lost Legionnaires George 0. Hill and Russell B.
Sanguedolce. These veterans leave behind a legacy of service to the community,
through the American Legion and other organizations dedicated to making our homes
safe, day and night. As the last stanza of the Marine Corps Hymn states "If the Army
and the Navy, Ever gaze on leaven's scenes, They will find the streets are guarded,
By United States Marines." With these veterans present as well, the streets will be
well guarded for the rest of lHeaven's residents. God bless our Veterans for their
service to our community.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world in your thoughts and prayers
every day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the
families of those called to active duty in service to America, helping out whenever and
however we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


It's Tuesday and I'm feeling a little
like I have a Christmas hangover.
Not a hangover from drinking the
hard stuff but an eating hangover.
I'm kinda slow and sluggish after all
the wonderful food I ate yesterday. I
knew that I had eaten way too much
when I spotted a half of a pound cake
and a pecan pie staring at me this
morning from the kitchen counter
and I turned up my lip and growled at
two of my all time favorite desserts.
Fact is I feel like I have been on
an eating marathon for the past week
or so. Now it's time to pound on this
keyboard and crank out another col-
umn about food, folks I'm just not
feeling it. Next Monday will be new
years and by then I'm sure this bloat
will have hopefully subsided and we
will all be back rattling the pots and
pans once again.
Many Southerners can't let New
Years day pass them by without cook-
ing a big pot of dried black eyed peas.
They are, after all, an essential dish
for New Years dinner, as eating them
will bring you good luck for the next
twelve months, or so we believe.


2 cups dried black-eyed peas
2 tablespoons bacon grease
1 smoked ham hock
Salt and black pepper
Place peas in a pot of water and let
soak for an hou r two. While peas
soak put ham hock and several cups
of water on to boil. Boil hock for at
least one hour then add soaked black-
eyed peas, bacon grease and salt and
pepper. Use salt and pepper to taste,
we like a lot of black pepper. Cook
over medium heat, stirring often for
about 1 1/2 hours or until tender. Ad-
just seasoning.
Serve peas over cooked rice.
Note: Our family has become fond
of dried red pepper flakes, we add
alott 1/2 teaspoon or so to our black
-eyed peas as they are cooking. We
also like to sprinkle fresh chopped
green onions and finely chopped bell
pepper on top of peas.

What could be better with cooked
dried black-eyed peas and rice than a
hot corn muffin?


/Jreaac LJJ'/I&s
3 eggs, beaten
3 cups buttermilk
2 tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup butter
3 cups yellow cornmeal
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
Preheat the oven to 500 degrees.
This high baking heat will make the
muffins have crusty sides. Grease 24
muffin cups and place in the oven to
heat.

,ri,.


In a mixing bowl, combine the
eggs, buttermilk, sugar and salt. Melt
the butter in pan and then whisk it
into the buttermilk mixture. Quickly
stir in the cornmeal, flour, baking
powder, and baking soda, mixing just
until combined. Measure 2 heaping
tablespoons of batter into each muf-
fin tin. Bake 15 minutes until golden
brown. Watch close and take muffins
out early if they become brown too
fast.

Hope all y'all have a safe, safe,
happy new year's day.


Underwater Tactics
By Ken Cook
Turning Cold Weather Into Hot
Fishing. If it's not snow or freezing
rain, it's bone-chilling air tempera-
tures and icy winds that make a day
on the water nearly insufferable. But
just because you're uncomfortable, it
doesn't mean that the bass are. Sure,
it's December, it's cold outside and
I'm sure you still have some holiday
shopping to do, but bass are still in the
lake. If they want to make it through
the winter they will have to eat.
As the water temperature drops,
bass follow the migrating shad out to
deeper water (deep being anywhere
from 30 to 40 feet in clear, deep lakes
or six to eight feet in murky, shallow
ones). Use your electronics and find
the balls of shad. There's sure to be
some bass nearby, holding up in ver-
tical, deep cover. Typically, bass will
be easier to find down lake on out-
side channel swings, bluff faces and
points with vertical drops.
Since bass are cold blooded, the
colder water has slowed them down
- so you should slow down, too. This
ties in directly to your bait selection,
the most important aspect to catching
bass in the cold. Just because the bass
are following migrating shad that,
doesn't mean that's all they will eat.
Fish biologists have discovered that d'
bass prefers a bait about three inches
long and about an inch in diameter.
That jig that you spent all summer
pitching into the bushes will do just
fine. But instead of relying on the
oldest known fishing lure by itself, I
like to dress mine up with the newest
technological advancement in fishing
bait.
On a 3/8-ounce jig, I trim the skirt
just past the hook to keep it from hav-
ing too large a profile since I want to
put a large trailer on it. I rig a Berk-
ley Gulp! Bat Wing Frog as the trail-
er. These two baits are meant to be
fished slow the perfect presentation
for a cold-blooded bass in winter-
time. I cut the front of the bait off just
behind the eye and thread it onto the
jig hook. The legs on the Bat Wing
Frog flutter like crazy on the fall and
with the slightest movements. Ken
Cook is the 1991 Bassmaster Clas-
sic champion and a 14-time Classic
qualifier.

AARP Chapter News
The Gilchrist County AARP Chap-
ter 2133 met in the Community Cen-
ter in Trenton on Tuesday, December
19th at 10:30 a.m. with President
Geneva Cornwell holding the gavel
for the last time after two years of
service.
There were many members in at-
tendance; the chapter membership
has grown in the time she has been
presiding and it was very encourag-
ing to see so many coming to the
meeting at this very busiest time of
the*year.
All the committee chairs had only
good news to report.
The guest speaker was Henry


Cribb, Pastor of the United Method-
ist Church of Trenton, and his mes-
sage was about the true meaning of
Christmas. With so many members
remembering when Christmas was
a time to reflect about the birth of
the Christ child and not an excuse to
shop 'til you drop. To celebrate the
coming of a baby under difficult cir-
cumstances, born in a stable, in with
animals, the idea of it compared with
the sterile surroundings now associ-
ated with birthing a baby boggles the
mind. To Christians the world over
this time of the year is very meaning-
ful and should not be just a time to
assess your Christianity based on the
number of gifts you buy.

Recipe For A Happy
New Year Anonymous
Take twelve fine, full-grown
months; see that these are thoroughly
free from old memories of bitterness,
rancor and hate, cleanse them com-
pletely from every clinging spite; pick
off all specks of pettiness and little-
ness; in short, see that these months
are freed from all. the past-have
them fresh and clean as when they
first came from the great storehouse
of Time. Cut these months into thirty
or thirty-one equal parts. Do not at-
tempt to make up the whole batch at
one time (so many persons spoil the
entire lot this way) but prepare one
day at a time.
Into each day put equal parts of
faith, patience, courage, work (some
people omit this ingredient and so
spoil the flavor of the rest), hope, fi-
delity, liberality, kindness, rest (leav-
ing this out is like leaving the oil out
of the salad dressing- don't do it),
prayer, meditation, and one well-se-
lected resolution. Put in about one
teaspoonful of good spirits, a dash of
fun, a pinch of folly, a sprinkling of
play, and a heaping cupful of good
humor.

Remember 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 sometimes
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

Florida Master
Gardener Volunteer
Classes Now Forming
In Dixie, Gilchrist, And
Levy Counties
The University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Scienc-
es (IFAS) will offer a program, called
Florida Master Gardener., Dixie, Gil-
christ, and Levy Counties have joined
together to provide this training for
selected home gardeners in the area.
The coordinating County Extension
Agent will be Anthony Drew of Levy
County. Our Master Gardeners (MG)
will be the Nature Coast Master Gar-
deners.


Master Gardener is a title given to
individuals who receive a minimum
of 50 hours of in-depth training from
County Extension Agents and agree,
in return to give 50 hours of volun-
teer service helping the local county
Extension program.
Training will include topics such
as basic plant science, entomol-
ogy, water quality and preservation,
nematology, turf management, soil
testing, annuals, woody ornamen-
tals, pest control and identification of
Florida Friendly Yards.
Master Gardeners give their vol-
unteer hours to county Extension
offices in many ways. The actual
program depends on the coordinat-
ing county Extension Agent. The
Nature Coast Master Gardeners may
assist in plant clinics, speak on en-
vironmental horticulture, become a

PAWS Program Offers
Veterinary Care
Support To Seriously Ill
Pet Owners
Many people who suffer from
debilitating illnesses such as can-
cer and AIDS struggle emotionally,
physically and financially to care for
themselves, so properly looking after


their four-legged family members
can quickly become more effort than
they can shoulder alone.
Enter the Pets Are Wonderful Sup-
port group, or PAWS, at the Univer-
sity of Florida College of Veterinary
Medicine.
"We generally have 20 to 30 cli-
ents, and each of them can have a
limit of three pets that we'll treat,"
said Jenna Ashton, class of '07, who
since 2001 has played a key role in
running PAWS and currently serves
as its vice president of surgery.
Richard Martin, a retired Pacific
Bell employee whose income is a
monthly disability check, has been
a PAWS client for five or six years,
he said. Martin has brought Rip, his
13-year-old Rhodesian ridgeback
crossbred dog, to PAWS for routine
physical examinations and for peri-
odic biopsies of the fatty tumors Rip
is prone to getting on his body.
Martin first heard about PAWS
through the Ryan White program at
the public health department.
"It has really been a blessing for
us," said Martin, who acquired Rip
as a puppy from his nephew. "I prob-
ably couldn't afford to have a pet if I
had to pay all the costs myself, after
rent, utilities and insurance."
PAWS works with representatives
of community organizations that
serve individuals with special health
needs to identify potential clients.
Participants must certify that they
have a terminal or debilitating ill-
ness, and that they meet low-income


criteria.
"The program was patterned af-
ter one in California that was set up
specifically to help AIDS patients at
a time when. they were considered
pariahs and often had no one for
emotional support, except their pets,"
said Jack Gaskin, D.V.M., who along
with Amy Stone, D.V.M., serves as
PAWS' clinical instructor and ad-
viser. Natalie Isaza, D.V.M., is the
group's surgery supervisor.
He added that PAWS volunteers are
compassionate, community-minded
and dedicated to the true calling for
many veterinarians: the human-ani-
mal bond.
"Our clients are needy and very
grateful that these young profession-
als-to-be take time from their busy
schedules to assist them and their
pets," Gaskin said. "It's very much
a mutually beneficial relationship."
Gaskin credited the program's found-
er, UF veterinary college professor
emeritus Tom Lane, D.V.M., with the
program's success. Lane, who also
helped to create the college's 24-hour
pet loss support hotline, retired in
2000.
"So much of the veterinary com-
munity has benefited from Dr. Lane's
largesse and expertise," Gaskin said.
"He is very much a credit to our col-
lege."
To participate in surgery clinics,
students must have completed either
the shelter medicine or surgical rota-
tions, whereas for general clinics to
serve as doctors unde': faculty super-
vision students muft be juniors or
seniors and have taken either general
medicine or small animal medicine.
Freshman and sophomore students
serve as technicians.
Money is allocated to the group
through the Veterinary Medical Col-
lege Council, which receives funding
from the UF-wide Board of College
Councils. Gaskin said PAWS also had
benefited from support from West-
side Animal Hospital and its owner,
veterinarian Wilbur Wood, D.V.M.,
as well as from Micanopy Animal
Hospital and its owner, veterinarian
Molly Pearson, D.V.M.
"They really helped in the early
phases of the program by volunteer-
ing their clinics, staff and resources,"
Gaskin said. "In addition, Cheryl
Shechta and her associates at Webster


Veterinary Supply have been very
generous in donating supplies over
the years."
In addition to supplies provided
through Webster, pharmaceutical
companies including Pfizer, Novar-
tis and Bayer have donated medica-
tion to be distributed to pets receiv-
ing care through the program. Hills
Pet Food has donated food for PAWS
participants as well. PAWS also rep-
resents a meaningful learning oppor-
tunity for student volunteers.
"What's really important about
PAWS is that third- and fourth-year
students with clinical experience
give guidance to first- and second-
year students who, in turn, gain first-
hand experience dealing with clients,
patients and routine veterinary care
issues before they enter their formal
clinics," Gaskin said. "The PAWS en-
vironment is low-key and unhurried,
so students have the opportunity to
learn their way around the small ani-
mal clinic and gain some clinical ex-
pertise in advance of their classmates
who choose not to participate."

My Mother's Garden
My mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart..
She planted all good things that gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream,
fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.
And when life's storms came blowing through, she protected me enough,
But not too much because she knew Id need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong,
markers for my pathway that will last a lifetime long.
I am my mother's garden; I am her legacy.
And I know today she feels the love reflected back from me.

her's March, Good King Wenceslas,
Jolly Old St. Nick and Joyful, Joyfiul.
During Good King Wenceslas, each
section played a solo or duet high-
lighting their musical talent.
The large Seventh grade interme-
diate band performed Ceremonium,
Christmas is Coming and Christmas
Cheer. Band director, Todd Eckstein,
informed the crowd that this group
was looking forward to the chance to
become part of the Marching Band
next year.
Eighth grade Concert Band per-
formed the Bells of Christmas, a
Christmas Cannon, and the student's
favorite, A Rocking Christmas. Se-
nior, Tyson Railey, performed on the
drums with Eighth graders on this
tune.
High School Symphonic Band
performed themes of the Nutcracker
Suite I, Chinese Dance and the stu-
dent's favorite, Salvation is Created.
The band then played the crowd's
favorite, Carol of the Bells. Before
the final number of the evening, Mr.
Eckstein congratulated this year's
Marching Band members on their
great year and the Superior rating
they received at District. He an-
nounced that this was the 20th year
the Purple Powerhouse Band had
achieved this recognition with four
different Band Directors. He at-
tributed the Band's success to the
student's tradition of hard work and
dedication to the program. The last
piece was the traditional Sleigh Ride
with a twist. At various point in the
music, a musician slaps two pieces of
wood together for the sound of the
whip. The wood musician this year,
Tyson Railey ventured into the audi-
ence, leaping about as he performed
this task. His final leap across the
stage was reminiscent of one of his
lay up shots in basketball. All of the
bands received thunderous applause
at the conclusion of their performanc-
es and the Symphonic Band received
a standing ovation.
Throughout the evening the inter-
lude music was performed by Senior
Stephanie Deane and Junior Amber
Forshaw. Stephanie performed a solo
of Serenade mvt. I and Amber per-
formed a solo of Partitain A Minor
mvtIII. As. a duet, they performed
Allegretto, Allemande, Greensleeves
and Famous Cannon. Stephanie and
Amber arranged the Greensleeves
and Famous Cannon pieces.
Patrons, musicians and family
members enjoyed a variety of sweet
delights and punch in the lobby fol-
lowing the performance.

ensemble events, concert assess-
ments and our Third Annual Dinner
Theatre in our next article. The Bell
Band Program and the Bell Boosters
wish you all a Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year.

Manatee Springs State
Park Announces Guided
Paddling Trips
December marks the beginning of
Manatee Springs State Park's winter
paddling program. Every Friday at
8:30 a.m. the park offers a guided ca-
noe/kayak trip on the spring run and
out into the Suwannee River. De-
cember also is the time of year park
visitors can expect to see manatees
returning from other areas of the Gulf
Coast seeking refuge from the colder
waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
"For park visitors, the milder tem-
peratures of winter offer relief from
the humidity and insects often en-
countered in the summer," says Sally
Lieb, Park Manager. Lieb added "the
water of the Suwannee River is of-
ten clearer in the winter making it an
ideal opportunity, to see manatees as
you paddle the river."
Participants should have at least
some paddling experience but the
trip is easy to moderate and does not
require advanced'paddling skills.
The paddle departs the kayak/canoe
ramp at the spring run at 8:30 a.m.
and is limited to the first 10 boats reg-
istered on the day of the paddle.
The paddling trips will continue
through the last Friday in March
2007. The trip is free with a paid
park admission if you have your own
boat. Those needing a rental canoe
or kayak can make arrangements
with Suwannee River Tours at (352)
949-0379 no later than 5:00 p.m. on
Thursday, the day before the paddle.
For more information about this pr
any other park program or activity,
please call John Lohde, Park Services
Specialist at (352) 493-6823.


Members of the sixth grade beginning band from left are Cody

Three Things
College-Bound Seniors
Must Act On Before
December 31st
1. Remove all savings from their
name or lose more of it than they can
imagine. If they cannot remove it
from their name due to IRS regula-
tions, then shelter those monies in a
non-assessed type of asset. Assets
in the student's name are penalized
at a rate four-five times higher than
parental assets when determining fi-
nancial help available from colleges
and government.
2. Make sure they have applied to
at least four-six colleges with gener-
ous financial track records. Options
are critical when it comes time to
pick a college. Not every college
will treat students the same when it
comes to available money, and you
won't know the real price-tag until
the financial offers show up in March
or April.
3. Gather student and parent fi-
nancial information and prepare the
family's best estimate of their taxes
in preparation for the FAFSA filing as
early in January as possible. Families
should not wait until their tax returns
are completed. Schools divide up the
lion's share of their monies long be-
fore April 15th.
"Time is running out for college-
bound, high- 161 is['eniors, but there
are still actions they can take to re-
duce their costs for college," says
Scott Anderson, author of STOP!
Everything You Thought You Knew
About Paying For College Is Wrong
and President of RealCollegeSavings.
corn, the Internet's best free resource
for college financial information.
Scott is one of the country's lead-
ing authorities on college funding.
His passion is to gore the common
knowledge and get the truth to the
families that can use it. Myths and
misconceptions are costing families
thousands of dollars every year.
Myth #1; the Scholarship Game:
The standard practice of every col-
lege is to deduct what a student gets in
outside scholarships from the money
they would have otherwise given the
student. One unfortunate girl won
$8,500 in scholarships only to have
Notre Dame take $8,500 away from
her.
Myth #2; 529 plans, Education
Savings Accounts, and Custodial Ac-
counts: They are rarely wise ways to
save for your children's college edu-
cations. Colleges often treat those
plans to the highest penalties, but
they can be fixed.
Myth #3; Private colleges are more
expensive: College financial track
records are the true indicator of how
expensive a school will be. Private
colleges have the best track records
and are very often the least expensive
choice.
Myth #4; My student will likely be
treated the same whichever school he
or she gets into: Student positioning
is key to minimizing school costs.
Learn how to position your student
with different colleges and you'll
save thousands of dollars.
Myth #5; There's nothing to do un-
til my student is a Senior: December
31st critical to Juniors and Sopho-


U AR


mores as well. Move money now or
suffer the consequences.
There is still time for parents and
students to make significant improve-
ments in their costs for college. Ac-
tion before the end of the year can be
critical in some cases. The more you
know about the college funding pro-
cess, the more money you will save.

Preserving Rural
Florida-UF/IFAS And
The Original Florida
Tourism Task Force To
Hold 2nd Agriculture
Workshop
The UF/IFAS North Florida
Research and Education Center-
Suwannee Valley (NFREC-SV) and
The Original Florida Tourism Task
Force will be offering the second of
three workshops on Tourism Oppor-
tunities for Farmers in Live Oak on
Tuesday January 9, 2007 from 9:00
a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
According to Walton County Ex-
tension Agent Bruce Ward, who
presented at the first workshop on
December 6th, "Our economy is
evolving into an experience economy
and farm-based experiences such as
overnight farm stays, trail rides, corn
mazes and bird watching are desired
by a growing number of visitors to
Florida". This series of workshops
will help area farm and land owners
start or improve such businesses.
Ward also encouraged land own-
ers to "take advantage of opportu-
nities presented by existing natural
resources" to "help visitors realize
their dreams"; these workshops are
designed to help farmers and land
owners do just that. This second
workshop promises to be even more
exciting and informative than the first
one.
NFREC-SV serves the diverse
agricultural interests in the region
including vegetables, fruit crops,

History Hunting
Geneticists Can Still
Follow Familiar Trail
As the world's first explorers
branched away from humanity's
birthplace in east Africa some 65,000
years ago, distinct mutations accumu-
lated in the DNA of each population,
essentially providing a genetic trail
for modern researchers to follow.
Recently some scientists have
raised doubts about this classic ge-
netic system to study ancient migra-
tions of people and to estimate the
populations of people or animals
as they existed tens of thousands of
years ago.
But University of Florida research-
ers writing this month in an online
edition of Science validate the ap-
proach, which involves tracking se-
quences of mitochondrial DNA, also
known as mtDNA.
"The study of mtDNA has helped to
demonstrate the African origin of our
species and the relationship between
living humans and the Neanderthals,"
said Connie Mulligan, Ph.D., an as-
sociate professor of anthropology in
the College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences and an assistant director of the
UF Genetics Institute. "MtDNA data
have also been used to establish the
time and route of major events in hu-
man history, such as the expansion of
Neolithic farmers into Europe, and
the settlement of the New World."
MtDNA has made headlines re-
cently because of initiatives such as
the National Genographic Project, a
multimillion-dollar endeavor to re-
construct humanity's ancient migra-
tions, and because of well-publicized
efforts to track the ancestral roots of
Oprah Winfrey and other personali-
ties.
Located within the hundreds of
energy-producing mitochondria that
lie outside the nucleus of our cells,
mtDNA is unlike the DNA inside the-
nucleus of a cell that contains genes
from both of our parents in people
and animals mtDNA is exclusively
passed from mothers to their chil-
dren.
For humans, this means that all of
the mtDNA in our cells are copies of
our mothers' mtDNA, which in turn
were copies of their mothers' mtD-
NA. In this way, mtDNA progresses
through the ages, springing from
what many scientists believe was a
common ancestral mother.
But over the eons, random muta-
tions enter the genetic code of all spe-
cies. By tracking similarities and dif-
ferences of mtDNA, scientists gain
insight about the size of groups and
how they moved around the world.
"When you look at ancient migra-
tionI, you'ree al\l \s asking the ques-
Lion. 'How [n o "a. the p,_,plAti_,,:,r1,
howmany were there?'" said Mi-
chael Miyamoto, Ph.D., a professor
and associate chairman of zoology in
UF's College of Liberal Arts and Sci-
ences. "The field has worked from the
premise that the more mtDNA varia-
tion you saw, the larger the popula-
tion was that carried that variation,
just like there would be a greater di-
versity of T-shirts or shoes within a
larger population than a smallerpopu-
lation."
However, the connection between
mtDNA and population size was
questioned this year when French
scientists analyzed vast groups of
gene sequences from more than
3,000 animal species. They specu-
lated that an evolutionary tendency
for species to keep helpful genes
and sift out detrimental ones, called
"natural selection," preferentially af-
fects mitochondrial diversity, making
mtDNA less useful for population
size estimates.
"From a conservation perspective,
when scientists look at census counts
of animals and how the population
size may be increasing or decreas-
ing, the study of mtDNA tells us
about the level of genetic diversity
in a population, which is important
in making conservation decisions on
endangered species," Mulligan said.
"If this approach were not credible,
it could potentially have a bearing
on future policy decisions, as well as
affect literally hundreds of previous
studies on humans and other mam-
mals."
UF Genetics Institute scientists
analyzed publicly available mtDNA
datasets of 47 species of mammals a
subset of the animals that were in the
French study as well as associated
data on protein diversity in the same
species. A greater variety of proteins
indicates more diverse DNA, because
DNA contains a species' blueprints
for manufacturing protein and the
French scientists agreed that protein
diversity did correlate with popula-
tion size.
All that remained for UF research-


ers to do to reinstate mtDNA diver-
sity as indicative of population size
was to determine that protein diver-
sity and mtDNA diversity were cor-
related.
"The researchers showed a corre-
lation between mitochondrial DNA
and genetic variation in a way that
has never been done before," said
Marc Allard, Ph.D., an associate pro-
fessor of biology at George Washing-
ton University who was not involved
in the study. "Population geneticists
have used mitochondria for all kinds
of work for 20 years, and to think that
mtDNA didn't correlate with popula-
tion size was clearly going against the
dogma. This study shows the dogma


r~ 9FIk*14 1 iIIiA-~ 'xlII1 lr11 r1A ll- 11 f-m AAfY V1V L qIi II ; -MaIVY I f A


is safe in mammals and probably in
vertebrates, as well."

pricing for the monthly premium,
deductible (if any), and their drugs.
Anyone can go to the website www.
medicare.gov and run the Plan Com-
parison tool to see which plans may
best suit your medication needs. If
you are on a Part D Plan in 2006, go


LJ'iJ2,i/JLJJ-' ]~~PJ

New Year's Resolution
Number 1: Stop
Tanning!
The experts at The Skin Cancer
Foundation urge people who are
concerned about their health to stop
tanning (indoors and out) in the new
year for the sake of their health and
beauty. Ultraviolet radiation causes
skin cancer, premature aging and
weakens the immune system.
"Giving up tanning is as important
as eating better, getting more exer-
cise and quitting smoking, which we
know are the most popular resolu-
tions," said Perry Robins, MD, Presi-
dent of The Skin Cancer Foundation.
"UV radiation is a known carcinogen,
just like cigarettes."
Not only is tanning bad for your
health, but it is no longer even in
style. The time when people are
happy with their own skin color has
finally arrived. "Radiant isn't about
being bronzed, it's about being lu-
minous," said Sarah Brown, Beauty
Director, Vogue.
Skin Cancer:
The statistics speak for themselves.
Skin cancer is a global epidemic with
90 percent of all cases caused by sun
exposure. When sunlight strikes skin,
a sequence of protective reactions is
initiated, triggered by exposure to
UVA and UVB radiation. Tanning is
the body's natural, biologic response
to the harmful rays of the sun. When a
tan begins, some damage has already
been done. In fact, after decades of
worldwide research, the Internation-
al Agency for Research on Cancer
(IARC), a branch of the World Health
Organization (WHO), has unequivo-
cally linked sunbed tanning among
young people to melanoma.
Premature Aging:
If fear of skin cancer isn't enough
of a deterrent to stop tanning, perhaps
vanity will be a motivator. The cel-
lular damage caused by ultraviolet
radiation is cumulative and often ir-
reversible. The destructive process of
photoaging produces profound struc-
tural changes in the skin including
fine wrinkles, deep grooves, blotchi-
ness, sagging and a leathery texture.
Some of these changes may appear
as early as the age 'of 20 in anyone
who has spent a great deal of time
in the sun during childhood and teen
years.
Tanning is not only detrimental to
one's looks, it is no longer even "in."
Savvy women are embracing radi-
ant, luminescent and untanned skin.
Beauty insiders claim that "pale is
the new tan for spring."
Immune Suppression:
While lying in the sun or even
a tanning bed ma\ feel like a
"healthy" thing to do, if is the exact
opposite. And, the effects go beyond
skin cancer and aging. The skin nor-
mally mounts a defense against for-
eign invaders such as cancers and
infections. But getting a tan or sun-
bum can weaken the immune system,
reducing the skin's ability to protect
against these invaders. In addition,
the sun's rays can reach the cell's
nucleus, damaging the DNA. This
results in mutations in key genes that
otherwise prevent and arrest cancer
formation. It can cause cancer di-
rectly or by immobilizing the body's
natural defenses.
The evidence is undeniable -
there are simply no health or beauty
benefits to tanning. The advice of
dermatologists and specialists around
the world is to use effective sun pro-
tection every day.
"We are not telling people to stay
out of the sun," said Robins. "We just
want people to be safe about sun expo-
sure. If you follow our simple guide-
lines, you can enjoy the outdoors and
still keep your skin healthy."
The Skin Cancer Foundation's Pre-
vention Tips: seek the shade, espe-
cially between 10:00 a.m.. and 4:00
p.m., do not burn, avoid tanning and
UV tanning booths, use a sunscreen



with an SPF of 15 or higher every
day. Apply 1 ounce (2 tablespoons)
of sunscreen to all exposed areas, 30
minutes before going outside. Reap-
ply every two hours or after swim-
ming or excessive sweating. Cover
up with clothing, including a broad-
brimmed hat and UV-blocking sun-
glasses. Keep newborns out of the
sun. Sunscreens should be used on
babies over the age of six months.
Examine your skin from head-to-toe
every month. See your doctor every
year for a professional skin exam.

ate it can be extremely difficult to
perform these activities and achieve
the desired results. Pine seedlings
that are planted in loose, dry soil
and do not receive any immediate
precipitation will have much lower
survival rates than seedlings planted
in moist, compact soil that do receive
immediate and steady rainfall. While
we cannot custom-order our weather,
careful attention to long term predic-
tions and planning forestry activities
around predicted rain events can be
helpful.
Mature timber that has been ex-
posed to months of drought or lower
than average rainfall levels are weak-
er and less vigorous than timber that
has received normal amounts of rain-
fall. These weak trees can be stressed
further or even killed outright by the
inappropriate application of under-
story prescribed fire. Pine trees that
have been weakened or stressed are
more susceptible to attack from in-
sects and disease. One or two rain
events are generally not enough to
undo months of drought stress. An
entire rainy season may be necessary
to return standing timber to "normal"
health conditions. Be extremely
careful when performing prescribed
fire activities, especially under stand-
ing timber. As always, please call the
Florida Division of Forestry, Usher
Forestry Station (352) 493-6060 to
obtain a burning authorization for
any open burning and for piles over
8 feet in diameter. Any questions
about tree planting, prescribed fire
or any other forestry activity can be
directed to the Gilchrist County For-
ester (352) 463-3138.
