The Gilchrist County Commission
in their first meeting in January 2007
approved Resolution 07-01 support-
ing Dixie County and its placement
of the Ten Commandments in front
of the Dixie County Courthouse. Gil-
christ County Attorney John McPher-
son presented the resolution to the
board of County Commissioners.
Chairman Randy Durden remarked to
the attorney on how well he thought
the resolution was written.
Resolution 07-01
A Resolution of the Gilchrist
County Board of County Commis-
sioners supporting Dixie County and
its placement of the 10 Command-
ments in front of the Dixie County
Courthouse.
Whereas, the Ten Commandments
represefit a statement of the laws as
mandated by a higher authority than
mankind; and
Whereas, the Ten Commandments
are a symbol of the importance of
religion and laws in a well-ordered
society, and provide a positive re-
minder of the good behavior required
to maintain a moral culture; and
Whereas, the Ten Commandments,
and the religious principals they rep-
resent, were an important source of
inspiration for the founders of our
county and the framers of the United
States Constitution; and
Whereas, the Ten Commandments
should remain an inspiration to those
involved in the judicial and legisla-
tive processes in our cities and coun-
ties.
Now, therefore, be it resolved that
the Board of County Commissioners
of Gilchrist County does hereby sup-
port Dixie County in its placement of
the Ten Commandments in front of
the Dixie County Courthouse.
Duly adopted the second day of
January 2007.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion to adopt Resolution
07-01, Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford gave a second in support of the
motion. Just before the Chairman
called for a vote Commissioner Tom-
my Langford explained that he had

a statement that he wanted to read
to identify why he could not support
this resolution.
Commissioner Langford's state-
ment:
1. My oath of office from the State
of Florida.
It read.. I, DO SOLEMNLY SWEAR
(OR AFFIRM) that I will support,
protect and defend the Constitution
and Government of the United States
and of the State of Florida; that I am
duly qualified to hold office under the
Constitution of the State, and that I
well and faithfully perform the duties
of County Commissioner on which
I am now about to enter, so help me
God. UNDER PENALTIES OF PER-
JURY, I DECLARE THAT I HAVE
READ THE FORGOING OATH
AND THAT THE FACTS STATED
IN IT ARE TURE. And I signed my
name to it. I would be violating my
Oath I made to the State and before
God.
2. I believe the statement of laws
that were mandated (as stated in the
first whereas) were only mandated
for Moses and his people as found in
the book of Exodus in the old testa-
ment. The book of Hebrews, chapter
8 the Bible clearly tells us we live
under a new andbetter covenant. Our


laws are no longer written in store
Hebrews 8:10 says the laws are wr
ten in our minds and in our hearts.
3. I do not practice or keep t
Sabbath (commandment #4) as coi
handed under the law of Moses, t
ten commandments..
4. I do believe the Bible whi
contains the laws of Christ and t
new covenant that we now live und
should be an inspiration to those i

tain a moral culture, and that re
gious principles were an import

City Commission Receives More

Public Input Involving Downtown

Redevelopment Program
Commission To Hold Another Public Meeting In February To Hear From Taxpayers


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission
gave the public another opportunity
to speak out about their concerns of
the proposed Downtown Redevelop-
ment Plan in Trenton. This special
meeting held Monday evening in the
Trenton City Hall was well attended
by residents and business owners
whospoke their concerns involving
the proposed $4 million plan.
City Manager Jered Ottenwess ex-
plained that the Redevelopment Plan
was designed to eliminate the slum'
and blight identified areas in down-
town. The City Manager gave a brief
description of the four-block area that
is identified by a dotted line on sev-
eral of the visual boards that targeted
the downtown area in the plan. The
City Manager and Russell Moore, the
consultant representing the RMPK
Group, were asked to answer ques-
tions involving the financial invest-
ment the City of Trenton was consid-
ering as a part of the plan as well as
the return the taxpayers could see on
their investments.
The public attending the meeting
was told the Redevelopment Plan
would improve the downtown area
and businesses would come and lo-
cate in the community. The City
Manager explained the plan is de-
signed to provide streetscaping and


walking traffic to the businesses. The
increased amount of parking identi-
fied in the proposed plan would also
benefit the downtown targeted busi-
nesses. The City Manager and the
Mayor explained that if we build it,
the businesses would come.
Some members of the public asked
how soon the taxpayers would begin
to see a return on the investment the
City is planning to make on the tax
revenue. The answers to these and
other specific questions involving
the financial portion of the plan were
unavailable by the City Manager or
board members. The City Manager
asked the public if they felt the City
of Trenton was moving in the right
direction by adopting this plan for the
downtown area?
Former Mayor Lavaughn Sessions
cautioned the Commission on becom-
ing involved in a long-term debt that
would tie-up future revenues to pay
for this project. He explained there
are road improvements that need to
be made in Trenton now.
Gilchrist Grill owner Glenda Owen
asked the board if this downtown re-
development plan would repair the
dilapidated city street that connects
her parking lot to SR 26 at NE 10th
Street. The business owner'was told
that the City Manager has been meet-
ing with Clay Co:arie,., an Engineer


with the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District, to determine what
the City could do with the storm
water that drains into this area when
it rains. The business owner and tax-
payer was told that the downtown
redevelopment plan would not pro-
vide funding for the street repair as
the plan is currently written. The City
Commission has an existing plan,
but they can revise their plan if they
agree to.
Trenton resident Jory Marshall told
the commission that this plan lacks di-
rection and a real answer on what the
-businesses and residents can expect
involving the $4 million investment.
The THS graduate told the board that
the downtown redevelopment plan
would increase the property values
on the downtown businesses and that
would bring higher property taxes.
Trenton businessman Wilbur Bush
told the board that he and his fam-
ily have been in Trenton since 1956.
"I would like to see some figures on
what the City Commission expects
to receive on their $4 million invest-
ment in the downtown redevelopment
plan," Bush explained. I would rather
the City of Trenton use some of this
money on street repair and other ex-
isting needs, Mr. Bush added.
The City Manager asked for the

Personality For January

Punctuality: showing esteem for
other people and their time. Punc-
tuality is not easy. It requires effort.
Wherever we go we must make plans
to be on time and must adjust for un-
expected delays by leaving on time in
order to arrive on time by avoiding
the trap of "just one more." Punctu-
ality is the quality or state of being
strictly observant of a appointed or
regular time and having a strict ob-
servance, or promptness in keeping
engagements.
To most of us, punctuality refers to
being at an appointed location at an
appointed time. Truly being on time,
however, means arriving early. If a
person arrives even one minute late,.
he or she has missed the mark and is
not punctual.
Punctuality is not a one-time event
but the result of an ongoing effort to
be on time. It begins with rising at
a specific time in the morning and
continues throughout the whole day.
By rising early, a punctual person
can absorb delays without being late.
A machine runs most efficiently
when its individual gears fit together
precisely according to their design.


Selma Marlowe
When one gear loses synchronization
with the others, it affects the whole
machine. In the same way, people out
of sync with others in their office or
group activity put an increased strain
on the whole system. His or her lack
of punctuality throws everyone else
off schedule too.
This month of January allowed
this writer to find the pleasure of in-
terviewing one of the most punctual
people she has ever met. Originally
from Jacksonville, Florida, Ms. Sel-


ma Marlowe, the widow of Dr. James
Marlowe, is so punctual that she feels
that no one should ever wait on her
Being the mother of four sons, as well
as a former Navy wife, she experi-
enced many times of needing to dem-
onstrate punctuality during her many
moves, many meetings and many
places she had to take her sons. Ms.
Marlowe learned punctuality from her
mother who she relates "Was always
on time and never late for anything,
whether it was for church services or
PTA meetings or even social gather-
ings." Even as a child, Ms. Selma
would even find herself following in
her mother's footsteps in being early
and even "pitching in and helping
whenever she saw her mother lend-
ing a helping hand."
Throughout the years, this kind
and gentle lady had learned the im-
portance of being punctual, for she
is presently a member of the local
AARP Chapter and the Woman's
Club. In the past she served as
church financial secretary and is a
former president of the United Meth-
odist Women, while presently is still
a member of that organization.
Ms. Selma said that she has "always

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
A year ago, I forecasted GAAP
earnings for Genentech of $1.71 per
share, or an earnings growth rate of
45 percent. What I questioned back
then was whether Genentech would
be able to maintain its lofty P/E ratio
of 75.
I pointed out that if the P/E ratio
should fall to 55, a drop of 27
percent, you would still have a price
gain, assuming my earnings estimate
is correct. However, you would want
to wait until the Street gets over its
selling frenzy before considering an
investment.
Two things have happened since
then. The first is that it took Wall
Street several months to get over its
desire to sell out of its positions in
Genentech. When it did, the price
reached a low of about $75 per share
by the middle of May. At that point
Genentech became an extremely
attractive investment candidate.
The second point of interest is
that I was well under in my earnings
estimate, with the company recently
announcing 2006 GAAP earnings of
$1.97 per share, a 67 percent increase
over the $1.18 per share it earned in
2005.
However, the Street's enthusiasm
for Genentech continues to wane
somewhat and the shares recently
traded at $87.88 or about 3 percent
higher than the $84 price the shares
were trading at a year ago.
Although Genentech's multiple or
P/E ratio did fall to a reading of about
51, it is necessary to note that any
company posting the kind of earnings
growth that Genentech has turned in
will see its share price increase over
time.
So how well is Genentech
positioned going forward into the
New Year? The company already
has one billion-dollar blockbuster,
Rituxan, which treats non-Hodgkin's


lymphoma. Its cancer therapy,
Avastin, which treats colon cancer,
has also been approved to treat lung
cancer. Genentech's other oncology
products include breast cancer
treatment Herceptin and lung cancer
killer Tarceva.
Looking at some of the key statistics
from last year, domestic sales hit
$7.169 billion, a 39 percent increase
over 2005. Operating revenues came
in at $9.284 billion, a 40 percent
increase over 2005.
Meanwhile, the company's cost
of sales in 2006 was 15 percent
of revenues, as compared to 18
percent in 2005, while research and
development remained constant at 19
percent of sales. So far'things look
good. The next step is to determine
the intrinsic value of the shares.
Using a discounted earnings
approach with an earnings growth rate
of only 26 percent and a discount rate
of 15 percent, which is the average
return on the S&P 500 index of 1:1
percent plus 3 percent for additional
risk, Genentech has an intrinsic value
of $120 per share.
The more conservative discounted
cash flow to the firm model produces
an intrinsic value of $93, using the
same 26 percent earnings growth rate.
As a reference point, Genentech has
a three-year average earnings growth
rate of 52,percent.
My 2007 GAAP earnings estimate
is :$2.48 per share. If you use the
current trailing twelve month P/E of
51, the result is a share price of $126
and a capital gain of 44 percent. Even
if the P/E should fall by 20 percent to
about 40, not an unreasonable number
among comparable firms, you would
still have a share price of about $100
for a capital gain of 14 percent.

Letter To The Editor
I read with interest John's Com-
ments in last week's paper. Did
Tommy Langford vote "against the
.Ten Commandments," or did he vote
against Resolution 07-01?
Why don't the Gilchrist County
Commissioners tend to business in
their own backyard (like funding and
retaining a quality police force, and
enacting an enforceable Noise Ordi-
nance) instead of wasting taxpayers'
money getting involved in another
county's business?

Bearing Witness Of The Father
(Kent Heaton)


Jesus claimed often that if men knew Him they would
know His Father. The works which He did testified to the
Father (John 5:36), His teaching reflected the will of the
Father (John 7:16) and His life exemplified the
righteousness of His Father (Matthew 3:15). The whole
character of Jesus is summed up in the witness of the
Father living through Him. To know Christ is to know God.
As Christ Jesus is our example and we follow His
footsteps (1 Peter 2:21), the Father must live through us by
our testimony, our teaching and our lives. Paul exhorted the
Corinthians to "be ye imitators of me, even as I also am of
Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1). That is 'a heavy task to place
upon oneself. It is difficult enough to know the power of
our influence on others. As children of God, we mold our
lives into the image of Jesus Christ so that when others see
our lives they see Jesus Christ.
The apostle used the example of Jesus to show how he
patterned his life. "I am crucified with Christ:
nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and
the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of
the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me"
(Galatians 2:20). Bearing witness of the Father demands
that we share in the life of Jesus Christ. The Son of God
gave His life to the will of the Father. Paul was willing to
take on that cross and become like his Savior. His life was
living with Christ in him. Christ lived with the Father
living in Him. As children of God, we live with Christ
living in us as the Father lives in us.
Bearing witness of the Father is much like our


relationship in the physical family. Children often bear
resemblance to their parents through speech, actions and
manners that we immediately know the relationship. How
much more when we let Christ live through our lives the
Father is seen. "Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved
children" (Ephesians 5:1). It is from the Greek word in this
text "imitators" that we have the word "mimic." Our lives
are a reflection of the character of God.
Jesus declared if one saw Him they saw the Father. Our,
witness must not be our own but the character of the Holy
Father. "As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves
according to the former lusts in your ignorance: But as he
which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner
of conversation; because it is written, 'Be ye holy; for I
am holy'" (1 Peter 1:14-16). To be children of the Father,
we must bear the resemblance of the Father as our older
Brother has done.
Our speech will be the speech of our Father (Colossians
4:6); our minds will be directed by His will (Ephesians
5:15-21); the conduct of our lives will be measured by the
works of God (1 Peter 2:11,12); the example we leave
before others will reflect the image of the Father (2
Corinthians 3:16-18); "And whatsoever ye do in word or
deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks
to God and the Father by him" (Colossians 3:17). When
men saw Jesus, they saw the Father. When men see our
lives, who do they see our futile lives in the flesh or the
glory of God? May it always be the glory-of the Father.

Letter to the Editor
When I broached the resolution to
support the Dixie County Commis-
sion's placement of the Ten Com-
mandments in front of their court-
house, my neighbor asked which
commissioner voted against the Ten
Commandments so she could vote
against him. I wonder if that was the
intent of the Journal's misrepresen-
tation of Commissioner Langford's
position.
Mr. Langford is not against the
Ten Commandments; he is against
supporting the Dixie County Com-
mission in its petulant and patently
unconstitutional act. Apparently he
takes his own oath of office to sup-
port and defend the constitutions of
the United States and the State of
Florida more seriously than our other
commissioners.
I personally object to the monument
itself. It begins with a title of "The
Ten Commandments," as if there
is only one set of ten. Jews believe
there are 613 commandments, not
just ten. Protestants and Cathollics
cannot agree as to what the ten are or
how to number them. Both of theirs
and the misspelled and abridged ones
on the Dixie County monument are
patterned after the King James Ver-
sion of Exodus 20. Some fundamen-
talists believe these are man's com-
mandments and God's are contained
in Exodus 34. My neighbor has a set
on her front lawn. They are followed
by the statement "Jesus said, 'If you
love me, keep my commandments,"
yet Jesus specified only two com-
mandments of his own. The base of
the monument contains an eleventh
commandment in letters three times
the size of the rest to "Love God and
keep His commandments." So if you
are going to post God's command-
ments, I have to ask whose god, how
many commandments, and which?
The people of Gilchrist Coun-
ty should remember that the First
Amendment is a two edged sword.
It dictates that the government shall
neither establish a religion, nor pre-
vent the free exercise thereof. Justice
O'Conner was guided in her opinions
largely by the question of who made
the decisions with regard to a reli-
gious observance, the individual or
the government. The essence of free-
dom lies in the liberty to be different
or even unpopular without fear of re-
prisal from the government or a mob.
We each enjoy the freedom to select
those commandments which we will
keep or honor in their breach. They
belong in our hearts, our homes, our
chosen places of worship, and even
in the businesses we own. No one
man's choice, or even the choice of
majority, belong in the single court-
house we are all compelled by law to
share. Thi Journal might also take
note that if government is permitted
to play free with the First Ammend-
ment as it pertains to religion, it may
well play free with the press as well.
As to the text of the resolution it-
self, I object to the statement that
"the Ten Commandments and the re-
ligious principles they represent were
an important source for the found-
ers of our country and the framers
of the United States Constitution."
Our constitution is modeled after the
Gayanashagowa, a document writ-
ten by pagan people who worshipped
graven images. If we were to have
a Biblical form of government,
George Washington would have been
crowned king, a title he rejected.
Despite the insistence of some that
only Trinitarians should be permit-
ted to rule, our constitution specifies
that there will be no religious test for
office. The first actual Trinitarian
to occupy the White House was our
eighth president, Martin Van Buren.
As for the convention itself, Benja-
min Franklin moved to open each
session with a prayer, much like our
current commission meetings. His

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


SBy Cindy Jo Ayers
Don't you just love to come home
to a big ol' pot of dried lima beans? A
bag of dried lima beans are a staple in
any Southern pantry. I grew up eating
dried large limas that were cooked
until they were rather thick and
served over rice. My mother-in-law
always cooked hers where they were
kinda soupy. In fact she called it lima
bean soup and would served it with
her wonderful corn bread. Somehow
our limas have evolved into a cross
between the our two mothers' reci-
pes.
For all you young cooks out there
this is how we cook "down home" li-
mas at our house. First of all don't try
this after work; you just don't have
enough time. The night before you
want to cook the beans place them
in a bowl and cover them with water
and let them soak all night. Cook one
smoked ham hock for an hour to a
hour and a half in about two or three
inches of water. Since I'm trying to
do a little better on the amount of fat
we eat, several years ago I started us-
ing sliced pic-nics. I often find sliced
smoked pic-nic hams at Hitchcock's.
I bag up the slices in individual bags
and freeze them until I need them to
season limas or frozen acre peas that
I have in the freezer.
Once.the ham broth has cooked for
an hour or longer, drain the water off
the soaking limas and add them to
the ham broth and cook until tender.
This will take about an hour. You will
need to add salt, about a teaspoon
full, and lots of black pepper. You
may add more water as it is needed
as the beans cook. When the beans

ter to make the corn bread batter the
consistency of pancake batter. Take
frying pan out of oven and quickly
add the corn bread batter to oil. There
should be enough oil in the pan for it,
to bobble up over and cover the bat-
ter. Place back in the oven and bake
for 45 minutes. When corn bread
is nicely browned, open oven and
quickly stick it with a fork and re-
move it from the pan-quickly. If you
remove it quick enough most of the
oil will remain in the pan. Drain the
bread on several paper towels and cut
into slices.
Note: Warning, this corn bread will
be very, very hard. It will also be thin
not at all thick and fluffy. So if you
like that thick cake type corn bread
don't make this one. We also like to
make this hard corn bread and eat it
with chili instead of crackers.
John's mother made this recipe and
our entire family loves it.

Jamerson Sheffield Post 91 met on Thursday, January 18, in the regular monthly
meeting, preceded by the Post's Donation Dinner, a delicious spaghetti dinner, provided
by Robert Bennet and his wife ( the cook of this great dinner). A number of the Post 91
Legion family were present at this meal and good conversations were being enjoyed.
Post 91 has this dinner before the monthly meeting and it is an "All You Can Eat" meal
for a donation to the Post. The usual donation suggested is $5.00 per person; but you
can make a larger one if you choose too, "all donations gratefully received". This is a
fun way of fund raising and is open to everyone in the community, allowing anyone to
come see what Post 91 and the Legion Family has to offer. The building is available for
a donation fee for parties, meetings and such. The Legion Family is available to help
veterans and their families as well as the community as a whole.
President Abraham Lincoln, in part of his second inaugural address, spoke these
words "With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God
gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in, to bind up the
nation's wounds, to care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and
orphan, to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace among
ourselves and with all nations". And in these words, "to care for him who shall have
borne the battle..." lies the main point of the American Legion. The American Legion
was formed to take care of the World War I veteran and his widows and orphans. Then
more ideas for caring for the veterans came about. The forerunner of the VA came
about, and later during World War II, the Legion brought the idea for education up and
the GI bill was passed. More programs were started and continued into the present day.
The programs of the Legion work to educate and give opportunities to our veterans, their
widows and children, and to the communities in which we live, and with American
Legionnaires, "Still Serving America", these programs work.. Check into how these
programs might fit you and you can continue to serve America and also "care for him
who shall have borne the battle..."
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Lt. Daniel Slaughter spoke to the Legionnaires at
Thursday's meeting about Identity Theft and how to prevent it. Lt. Slaughter
encouraged everyone to watch their bank statements closely, looking for anything
unusual, to keep your "PIN" secure, as well as your Social Security Number, and the
SSNs of your children as well. The Social Security Number can be used to open charge
accounts and get credit cards in YOUR name, with THEIR address, and you will be
charged for the purchases THEY make. The "pre-approved" credit card solicitations
received in the mail should be shredded or destroyed before going into the garbage can.
Again, someone can fill out the card application, with THEIR address, and YOU get
charged.,
Lt. Slaughter strongly suggested that we ALL make use of the annual credit report
option. Three major credit report companies will give you one free credit report per
year. In January, contact one company for your free report. In May, contact the second
company for the free report from them, and in September, contact the third company for
that report, In this manner, you can get a free report and update on your credit history to
make sure your credit history is correct. The bottom line is PROTECT your personal
information, your credit card numbers, your PINs, your Social Security Number, and do
not give them out to anyone.
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 in service to America, helping out whenever and
wherever we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,
American Legion Post 149

As I circulated among the com-
munities of the Tri-County Area, the
response from you was overwhelm-
ingly positive as you concurred with
my thoughts. Many of you asked
what you could do to help. And so,
the "time, for action" has now be-
come the "call to action." Simply
stated, the call to action is to write,
e-mail, or call your governor and
legislators whose contact informa-
tion is provided below. If you believe
the establishment of a hospital in the
Tri-County Area is important to your
personal welfare, your family, and
community, then I encourage you to
write, e-mail, or call them prior to
the next legislative session which be-
gins on March 6, 2007, and share the
following:
I support Ameris Health Systems
in their efforts to appeal the recent
decision of the Florida Agency for
Health Care Administration denying
a Certificate of Need for the proposed
Tri-County Hospital that will serve
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy Counties.
I am a tax-paying citizen who wants
my voice to be heard, and I want my
legislators to know that the need for
a hospital in the Tri-County Area is
warranted. If an attempt for resolu-
tion through the appeals process is
unsuccessful, I respectfully request
that you explore what steps need to
be taken in the form of legislative ac-
tion to rectify this situation.
In closing, the prolific American
writer, John Haisbitt (former execu-
tive with IBM and Eastman Kodak
and former Special Assistant to Pres-
ident Lyndon B. Johnson) has been
quoted as saying, "The new source of
power is not money in the hands of a
few, but information in the hands of
many." Fellow citizens, for a mere

nor and legislators (or no cost for e-
mail or a phone call), you can make a

AARP News
The meetings of the Gilchrist
County AARP Chapter are never
dull.
President Nancy Padgett wel-
comed everyone to the first meeting
of the year and promptly turned the
agenda upside down by inserting the
guest speaker into the beginning of
the program immediately following
the minutes of the last meeting. This
is to accommodate the speakers who
many times have busy schedules and
need to leave before the end of the
meetings.
Todays speaker, Adelia Vachon, is
the AARP District Coordinator for
Advocacy, meaning she speaks for
and about the needs of the older citi-

zens in our area by alerting groups,
not necessarily AARP Chapters,
when there is some legislation pend-
ing that may affect their lives and ap-
pearing before Boards and Commit-
tees to speak for them. Her presenta-
tion was very well received and it is
a comfort to know that we have such
an energetic and vocal representative
on our side.
There were committee reports and
the meeting concluded before we
gathered around the buffet table for
a great feast of home made soups,
sandwiches and desserts. A most
satisfactory way to spend a morning;
friends, food and fellowship.

News And Notes For
Florida Veterans From
The Veterans Services
Office
Florida Local Veterans Services
Offices can assist veterans to obtain
proof of income and verification of
receipt of disability from the Depart-
ment of Veterans Affairs. Any veteran
in receipt of disability payments who
needs the standard VA letter for tax
purposes should contact the VA Re-
gional Office directly at 1-800-827-
1000. Be sure to have your VA claim
number or Social Security Number
available when you call. The letter
will be mailed to the address on file
for the veteran. At this time of year it
is important for veterans to have in-
formation available to complete their
2006 taxes.
Veterans Service Offices are not
income tax offices and specific tax
questions should be referred to a tax
specialist. Don't wait until the last
minute to take care of your taxes.
Do it now and avoid the last minute
rush.

Springhouse Quilters
News
Springhouse Quilters have had
many workshops and classes to teach
members new quilt blocks and quilt
techniques. A new member, Elaine
Zahan, a beginning quilter has been
working on a "whole cloth" quilt.
These quilts may be small for a wall
hanging or large enough to fit a king
size bed. The technique is the actual
quilting onto a fabric that has no piec-
ing. It is called a "whole cloth" quilt
since there is no quilting design other
than .the design made by either hand
or machine quilting directly onto the
fabric. Tradionally, these quilts are
most likely to be found in all white
and used for bed coverings or table
coverings. What makes the quilt
beautiful is the quilting design.

The beginning quilting classes be-
gan for Springhouse day new mem-
bers on January 18th, with Diane
Schweder providing an orientation
of fabric and tools that are used in
quilting. The night group beginner
classes began on January 23rd, with
the same presentation by Diane. The
classes will continue through March
20th. Each week, a different quilt
block with a different technique will

the art of quilting by continuing to
provide the basic quilting classes to
our new members.

Alachua County And
Osceola County
Properties Recognized
As Century Pioneer
Family Farms
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson announced today that the
Tillman-Hogan Ranch in Alachua
County and Kempfer Family Farm
in Osceola County have qualified for
recognition as Century Pioneer Fam-
ily Farms. Recognition in this pro-
gram means the families have main-
tained continuous ownership of the
property for at least 100 years.
"These families have been able to
retain ownership of their land through
the depression, droughts, freezes and


the urbanization of Florida," Bronson
said. "That is a great tribute to the
many generations of these families."
The Tillman-Hogan Ranch, which
is owned by R.J. and Joan Hogan, has
always been a cow/calf operation.
The Kempfer property is an amaz-
ing 25,000 acres, where the family
produces timber for its sawmill, has
a commercial cattle/calf operation, a
sod farm and raises purebred Brahma
cattle.
Since the program began 26 years
ago, 126 family farms have received
the Century Pioneer Family Farm
designation. The program is admin-
istered by the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services
with assistance of the Florida Agri-
cultural Museum.
For more information about the
program or to apply for membership
into the program contact Richard
Gunnels at gunnelr(idoacs.state.fl.us
or call (850) 488-3022.

Bell Sr. FFA Update
"From our Chapter, to the Com-
munity."
On December 5, 2006 the Bell
Sr. FFA Chapter participated in the
Sub-District FFA contest, which
is a statewide contest. Our chapter
participated in many contests. This
year Courtney Akins participated in
the Extemporaneous Contest placing
2nd. In the Prepared Public speak-
ing contest, a member must prepare
a six to eight minute speech, on a
topic related to Agriculture. After
performing the speech, that member
must then answer some questions on
their topic. This year Jessica Smith
competed in the contest placing 3rd.
Competing in the Creed Contest, one
9th grade FFA member must perform
our National FFA creed. After per-
forming the creed, they must also
answer some questions on the FFA
creed. This year our chapter was rep-
resented by Kaitlin Martin.
While there we had our Dairy
Judging Team take the CDE Exam.
Each member was tested on their
dairy-judging knowledge, in the ar-
eas of the different body parts of a
cow, the different classes of cows,
and types as well. This year our team
consisted of Rahma Mkuu, Lauren
Ellison, Donnie Logan, and Kyle
Johnson. Shane Taylor participated
in the Tractor Driving Operation con-
test. During this contest, you must
take a written exam on basic tractor
knowledge, and you must perform a
tractor driving contest.
The Bell Sr. FFA Chapter would
like to announce two wonderful
things. For the second year in a row,
our Parliamentary Procedure team
placed first and will proceed onto the
District Contest which will be held in
Fort White on January 18, 2007. We
would like to congratulate and wish
the team good luck. This year our
team consisted of: Jeffrey Williams,

Bulldogs Fall To Trenton On
The Road

Bulldogs Fall To Trenton
by Sean Boutwell
Bell played the Tigers in Trenton
Tuesday night. The previous match-
ups in Bell had resulted in a girls win
and a boys shocking loss.
The Lady Bulldogs felt good about
their chances of beating Trenton. The
.Lady Bulldog's defense came out
strong and caused Trenton's players
to miss shot after shot but their offen-


sive play was poor and they rushed
the tempo of the game and made bad
passes as well as committed turn-
overs.
Trenton's offense finally pulled
themselves together and got the lead
over the dogs. Bell fought back and
got the ball to Amy Ergle who helped
the Lady Bulldogs draw closer to
Trenton near the end of the first half.
Trenton led 25- 17 at the half. The


second half was no different than the
first. Bell didn't execute on offense
and let the Tigers stay ahead. The Ti-
gers won the game 44-39 but Bell did
have a bright side to the loss. Hannah
Hudson had an incredible individual
defensive performance. Hannah fin-
ished the game with 12 rebounds, 3
steals and an amazing 8 blocks.
The guys wanted revenge after suf-
fering an embarrassing last second
loss to the Tigers back in December
at home. The Bulldogs started slow
and the first period passed quickly
with the Tigers gaining a big ad-
vantage over the dogs. Cody Mesa
came in to the game and rallied the
defense. The Bulldogs closed the gap
mid-way through the second quarter.
In the last few minutes the Bulldogs
took the lead and in the final seconds
of the first half the ball was handed
to Cody Mesa. Cody shot the ball
from past the half court line and hit
an incredible shot that silenced the
once rowdy Tiger fans and gave both
the players and fans new hope for the
Bulldogs.
The second half started with Bull-
dog fans still buzzing over Cody's
half-court shot. The momentum car-
ried the players through the third
quarter and the Bulldogs could do no
wrong.
Trenton stayed close enough
though and when the Bulldogs tried
to get too fancy with their passes
and shots the Bulldog's lead quickly
evaporated. Trenton starters Henry,

The Varsity guys were just as suc-

Friday, the Bulldogs were home
again against the Branford Bucca-

Lady Bucs twice already in the sea-
son and were looking for another


win. Amy Ergle, SamantAa Williams,
and Anna Tousignant provided the
offense. Hannah Hudson and Krys-

the Lady Bulldogs got their third win
over the Lady Bucs this year. The fi-
nal score was 54-47..
The Bulldogs and Bucs spilt their
first two games against each other
and both teams were pumped for the
tie breaker. The Bulldogs showed
they wanted it more and played hard-
er than the Bucs. They had a total of
18 rebounds and 4 of the 5 Bulldog
starters scored into double digits. The
Bulldogs got a much needed win 50-
43.

Jackie.


Well, here we are almost a month
into the new year and I haven't even
started on all those things I listed that
I was going to do in 2007. My key
word for the year is downsize.
, I need to downsize my house and
buildings and get.idof things I don't
use,'things I haVfio r0om for,/things


I don't wear and things I've forgotten
I even have.
I need to downsize my spending. I
certainly don't need more stuff, more
clothes, more of anything except for
money in the bank.
Last but not least, I need to down-
size me. I mean really..enough is


enough. No more excuses just put
the fork down. As Dr. Phil would
say, "You don't have to like it...you
just have to do it."
So...before the entire year slips
away (and you know it does) 1 need
to get out that list and get crackin'. I
said for sure this year I was going to
take down my Christmas tree. That
sounds like a good place to start and
when I'm finished I can relax with
a good hot cup of coffee and a big
piece of chocolate...oops I have to get
a grip on that downsizing thing.
But on Wednesday, January 17th,
24 Joyful Hearts were not thinking of
downsizing their joy or the good time
shared with good friends.
Paulene Martin is doing much bet-
ter, praise the Lord, and we're keep-
ing her and Geneva Carver in our
prayers. Jackie Moore's son-in-law
has had a stroke and she's asked that
we pray for him as well.
Barbara Strom is going to help
those interested to make a quilted
purse. Diana Lynn busied herself
cutting material for her purse under
Barbara's watchful eyes.
Betty Hicks worked on her Swed-
ish weaving. The throw she's mak-
ing now is for a family in Texas and
she's using desert colors...sage green
and pale lavender. Mary Lou Ry-
der is working on one for her oldest
daughter and it's in lavender and pur-
ple. Bonnie Edwards, Lu Rowland,
Jackie Moore and of course Alice
Binns were all weaving as well and
it's a delight to see how different and
beautiful they all are.
Barbara Myrick and Lurie Twist
both chatted with Diana while she cut
her fabric. I'm not sure if they plan
to make a purse or not. Cathy Strom
spent her time visiting. I'm not sure
she has been able to settle down after
her trip to see the Gators big win.
Matty Turner continued crocheting
on what she calls her "forever" af-
ghan. Myrle Gilkey was crocheting
a lovely yellow afghan while Lera
Townsend worked on crocheting
kitchen sets for family.
We have two club quilts on frames
and Jane Boyd, Pat Luka, Ann Man-
gone, and Elaine Nemeth and her
friend Olga Knott all were busy as
bees quilting.
Ann Taylor and Ruth Wilkerson
both were knitting. Ann was mak-
ing those fancy dish rags that I use as
hot pads and Ruth was making baby
things. Marvine Deer was sewing
and Rita Simcoe was visiting with
everyone and sharing plants she's
started.
Everyone's excited about the trip
to the State Fair even if they're not.
going., We're hoping to bring home


some ribbons again this year.
Our next meeting on January 31st
is a "make it and take it" day. Bar-
bara will get those interested started
on their purses. It will take two ses-
sions. They will finish them at the
February 28th meeting.
Our Valentine's party is scheduled
for Wednesday, February 7th. Bring
finger foods to share and we'll pro-
vide cake and ice cream.
Well, before we knew it the clock
said...lunch time...so work was set
aside and lunches took its place.
Elaine said grace and Cathy added
her "Go Gators."
I continue to say how blessed we
are to be able to come together for
these few hours to work, share and
fellowship. How blessed to have
women to share in our lives and to
care about us.
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, January 31st. If you
don't have anything to do, drop by
and sit a spell. It's a blessing that's
for sure. We meet at 9:00 a.m. at
the North Gilchrist Fire Department
Building on C.R. 138.
And remember...God didn't prom-
ise days without pain, laughter with-
out sorrow, or sun without rain. But
He did promise strength for the day,
comfort for the tears, and light for the
way.
'Til next time...

File Number 7770007-009-AC
The Department of Environmental
Protection (permitting authority) gives
notice of its intent to issue an Air Con-
struction Permit to Anderson Columbia
Co., Inc., for a 250 tons/hour relocat-
able asphalt batch plant, Plant No. 9, to
be based at Lancaster Oil Co., approxi-
mately 1.5 miles west of U.S. Highway
129, on State Road 26, west of Trenton,
Gilchrist County. With a 5-day advance
notification, the facility will be allowed
to relocate to other sites within this coun-
ty as well as other previously permitted
counties. The air permit does not relieve
the owner from complying with other lo-
cal provisions such as zoning. The ap-
plicant's name and address are: Mr. Brian
Schreiber, Secretary, Anderson Columbia
Co., Inc. Post Office 1829, Lake City,
Florida 32056.
The plant will consist of a drum-mix
dryer, asphalt cement heater, hot-mix
asphalt storage silo, and miscellaneous
screens, conveyors, hoppers, and stock-
piles. It is a portable plant designed to be
dismantled, trucked to a new location and
reassembled. Fuel oil will be combusted
in the drum-mixer to dry aggregate and
in the asphalt cement heater so the mate-
rial will flow. Particulate matter from the
drum-mix dryer will be controlled by a
pulse-jet baghouse system. There will be
unconfined particulate matter generated
from the stockpiles, material handling
equipment, roadways, and truck traffic
within the site. These activities will be
controlled by good housekeeping prac-
tices such as paving, landscaping, and the
use of water or dust suppressants.
The permitting authority will issue the
Final Air Construction Permit in accor-
dance with the conditions of the Draft Air
Construction Permit, unless a response
received in accordance with the follow-
ing procedures results in a different de-
cision or significant change of terms or
conditions.
The Department will accept written
comments concerning the proposed per-
mit issuance action for a period of 14
(fourteen) days from the date of publica-
tion of "PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT
TO ISSUE AIR CONSTRUCTION
PERMIT." Written comments must be
post-marked and all facsimile comments
must be received by the close of business
(5:00 pm), on or before the end of this
14-day period, by the Permitting Author-
ity at the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Northeast District,
7825 Baymeadows Way, Suite B-200,
Jacksonville, Florida 32256-7590 or fac-
simile (904) 448-4363. Any written com-
ments filed shall be made available for
public inspection. If written comments
received result in a significant change in
the proposed agency action, the Depart-
ment shall revise the proposed permit
and require, if applicable, another Public
Notice.
A person whose substantial interests
are affected by the proposed permitting
decision may petition for an administra-
tive proceeding (hearing) under Sections.
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition
must contain the information sdt forth

desired to be on time for a meeting or
a function," for in doing so, it shows
courtesy toward other people's time.
She believes that "if a person is not
punctual he or she keeps others wait-
ing, and so much time is lost. It's
just not fair to others," she says, "for
when just one person is late, it makes
others late" who were on time.
You can replace stolen money, but
you can never replace a stolen mo-
ment. Once it's gone, it's gone for-
ever. So with those as our finishing
words, we can all understand how
being punctual is so important as we
prove to ourselves and others that we
live in a county of character because
we care.

Trenton Invites Public
To Downtown
Redevelopment Meeting
(Continued from Page One)
public to submit information to the
City Manager's office and the Com-
missioners about investments that
would be better for the City of Tren-
ton to invest the CRA funds in. The
residents and businesses can send
letters to City of Trenton, 114 North
Main Street, Trenton, FL 32693; and
contact the Trenton website @: www.
trentonflorida.org.
Rick DeWees, property owner
in Trenton, told the board there are
some of the proposals in the down-
town plan that he does not agree
with. "I have been driving a truck for
over 30 years and the median that is
proposed for the Main Street will be
a big deterrent for semi-truck traffic
in the community. He also explained
that the Live Oak tree limbs would
cause damage and be a maintenance
problem if the City was to experience
tropical storms in the future.
Rick DeWees' explained that the
individuals that operate businesses
from his property explained that the
increase property values leading to
the higher taxes are making it harder
and harder to stay in business.
Commissioner Glen Thigpen ex-
plained that a goal of the proposed
plan is to provide additional park-
ing in and adjacent to the downtown
area.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey ex-
plained that this entire redevelopment
plan grew from the initial vision to
improve the traffic and parking prob-
lems that often cause traffic conges-
tion on NE First Street. Kinsey re-
called he and County Commissioner
Randy Durden worked to identify
possibilities that would improve the
traffic congestion in this area that
border the business and residential
areas. "It was never the intention of
the City Commission to do the en-
tire plan, but specifically to work on
ways to eliminate the problem," Kin-
sey explained.
Commissioner Arlene Wilks ex-
plained that she didn't think that any-
one attending this meeting was in fa-
vor of the median being constructed
on Main Street.
Mayor Pete Randolph told the pub-
lic that the Commission is trying to
energize and bring the downtown
area back to the thriving business
district it used to be.
Commissioner Randy Rutter ex-
plained that he has talked to forty res-
idents and business owners and none
of them were in favor of the proposed
three-phase plan. "The people I talk
with feel that street improvements
are needed," Commissioner Rutter
explained.
The newest Commissioner on the
board explained that he didn't feel
that any of the proposals being con-
sidered would eliminate the identi-
fied slum and blight areas of the mu-
nicipality.
Commissioner Thigpen explained
that he was in favor of having another
Public Meeting to give the commu-
nity and business owners an oppor-
tunity to provide the City of Trenton '
with more ideas to consider for in-
vestments involving the downtown
area. The City of Trenton will decide
on a date to hold this meeting later in
February.
