FDOT Presents A By-Pass, Traffic

Pairs And, A Four-Lane Through

Downtown Trenton


by Cindy Jo Ayers
Although the date of construction
for the widening of Highway 26 from
Newberry through Trenton to Fan-
ning Springs has not been set the four
lane project is in the planning stages
at this time. In the past couple of
years several hearings and planning
sessions and a Kick-Off Presenta-
tion in 2005 were held. The Citizen
Advisory Committees met from June
though December of 2006 and the
committee's recommendation for
possible routes through and around
Trenton were presented at a meeting
held on Thursday, March 1 at the Gil-
christ County Woman's Club in Tren-
ton. Nearly 100 citizens attended the
meeting and learned of the 4 possible
routes through and around Trenton.
The project cost is between $208.15
million to $467.04 million.
The first route presented by Rose-
mary E. Woods of PBS&J was the


northern route that bypasses Trenton
completely. The Northern Alternative
exits or veers off current Highway 26
well west of the Trenton Elementary
School. The Northern route will exit
current 26 in between SW 19th Circle
to the North and cross the Greenway
by bridge. It will travel through the
Lancaster property and continue on
to cross Alternate 307 by bridge and
cross onto Piedmont property and
ooniinue to SR 129 where there will
be entrance and exit ramps. Then
the bypass will continue on until the
roadway reaches Hwy. 47 and at that
pbint there will also be entrance and
exit ramps; there will also be a bridge
that crosses old Tyler and the railroad
bed. The highway will continue south
until it rejoins the current Highway
26 east of the post office. This route
will cost approximately $178 million
and is by far the most expensive of
the four that are being considered.


The main cost is in the three bridges
which coast $162 million, the right
of way cost is $12.05 million and
roadway cost is $4.66 million. Three
homes will have to be relocated if
this plan is chosen and no business
relocations. The total length of this'
plan is 4.39 miles and the typical sec-
tion or road right of way is 324 feet.
Also this plan could possibly affect
6-8 state threatened and endangered
species and 1-2 federally listed spe-
cies.
The second option will be an Urban
One-Way Pair going through Tren-
ton. The eastbound one-way will be
current Highway 26 and 1st Avenue
North will be westbound route. The
road will separate west of the inter-
sections of SW 5th Street afid rejoin
existing SR 26 near the intersection
of NE 10th Street. The. alternative's
typical section will consist of two,

Gilchrist County Sheriff David P.
Turner took his fight for $365,519 in
2006-2007 budget funds to the Capi-
tal in Tallahassee on Monday after-
noon for a public hearing before the
Administration Commission.
Despite the Gilchrist County Board
of County Commissions' decision to
fund $3,055,139, or 89 percent, of the
chief law enforcement officer's total
budget request, the sheriff maintains
that in order to provide residents with
a premier level of service he needs
additional funding.
"When it comes to their [Board of
County Commissioners] departments
they have sufficient funds, but when
it comes to our department we're
supposed to get by, as get by can,"
Turner said, before showing the Ad-
ministration Commission large pho-
tographs of Gilchrist County's new
road department facility and the cur-
rent sheriff's office building. "You'll
see all of the potholes in front our
building. I haven't had money to get
a road grader in to fix the pot holes,
but look at the newly paved driveway
in front of the road department."
Budget issues that were in great
dispute on Monday include the fol-
lowing specific requests by the Sher-
iff which were not funded by the
county commission: $74,814 for two
additional deputies to staff an ex-

The Bell Town Council met Thurs-
day, March 1 in the regularly sched-
uled monthly meeting. This meet-
ing held significant interest for the
small growing community as the
council was scheduled to consider a
Resolution involving the Bell Vision
statement. A meeting room full of in-
terested residents in the Town Hall-
Historic Train Depot came to listen
to the Council's discussion involving
the proposed Vision.
Bell Town Council President Mrs.
Iris Roberts recognized Mark Gluck-
man, the chairman of the Vision
committee, to give the Town Coun-'
cil information involving the Vision
statement for the board's consider-
ation. The chairman explained that
he and over 30 others were involved
in many meetings to work together to
come up with the information that was
put into the draft of the "A Vision"


panded courthouse and $86,000 for
three associated vehicles. The initial
request was for three, but the county
commissioners did fund one position
in the 2006-2007 budget; $53,060 for
one investigative position; $118, 500
for four vehicles, one for the inves-
tigative position and three to replace
aging vehicles; $33,145 for one new
civilian clerical position for the cor-
rections budget area.
Shortly after Sheriff Turner and
four of his staff members concluded
their presentation, Randy Ball, pub-
lic safety coordinator for the office of
the governor, began asking questions
regarding the department's workload,
use of take home vehicles, jail popu-
lation and use of overtime hours.
"I would like to dispute several
points in your budget appeal," Ball
said, before instructing Sheriff Turner
to provide accurate and concise work
load figures as soon as possible to the
Administration Commission.
Board of County Commission
Chairman Randy Durden was then
given the opportunity to present the
county's stand on the sheriff's budget
appeal.
An important element to remem-
ber, according to Durden, is the fact
that the sheriff's department budget
request for 2006-2007 represents a
36 percent increase over the fiscal
year 2005-2006 request, which was


for the Town of Bell. He explained,
"There are not identified costs that
accompany the vision plan."
A VISION
to guide the future development of
the Town of Bell
, Bell is envisioned to remain a small
town,striving to grow sensibly into a
community that remembers its roots
and builds a wise future by:
* Creating a land use pattern that
provides for modest growth, without
losing the identity, physical attributes
and social fabric of a small, well knit
community;
* Accommodates an increase in ve-
hicular traffic that is balanced by a
system of pedestrian walkways to
encourage exercise, informal social
interaction and provides for alterna-
tive modes of transportation;
* Retains trees for their ecological
value; natural and scenic beauty; to
enhance walk ability and civic pride;


approved.
"Gilchrist County is a fiscally con-
strained county as defined in Sec-
tion 218.67, Florida Statutes. One
mill of taxation in Gilchrist County
raised only $585,690 to support the
county's 2006-2007 budget," Durden
said. "For the fiscal year 2006-2007
the percentage of the overall budget
devoted to the sheriffs department
was 29 percent. This substantial por-
tion of the overall general fund bud-
get devoted to the sheriff's office
indicated the county commission's
commitment to adequately funding
law enforcement within the county.
But, of course, law enforcement is
not the only high-priority public need
that must be funded by the county
commission."
Durden went on to explain that as
with any local government with lim-
ited revenues, the Gilchrinst County
commission is forced to set priorities.
He gave several examples of high
priority items that were funded in Lhe
2006-2007 budgets.
"While these items did not appear
in the.sheriff's budget, they will pro-
mote important goals of the sheriff,"
Durden said.
Priorities included an increase in
salaries for county employees which
will ideally aid in the county's at-
tempts to attract and retain qualified

and to preserve nature's authenticity;
* Provides community facilities that
service and support small scale resi-
dential, commercial, office, light in-
dustry and mixed-use developments
consistent with this vision;
* Encourages a compact down-
town. centered at the intersection of
US 129,CR 342, which incorporates
sidewalks, plazas, landscaped areas
that are pedestrian friendly thereby
encouraging shopping, dining, stroll-
ing, casual conversation and outdoor
community events;
* Fosters a town design the heart of
which is a pedestrian friendly town

landscaped walkways to interconnect
gateways at the town entrances with
landmark historic structures, parks
and places of pedestrian activity and

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Communication and coopera-
tion are two words in the English
language that I often see and fail
to hear of them being used enough.
The Vision statement for the Town
of Bell has been under construction
for sometime now. The commit-
tee of volunteers has been attending
meetings in the Bell Community
Center for over six months trying to
find the necessary pieces to preserve
this small rural community's neigh-
borly charm. They have also strived
to identify the needs of the growing
community that must be planned for.
In small rural communities and
counties, you often see groups which
feel that change is evil and we must
do what is necessary to preserve what
we have. I want to express something
that my father, J. Min Ayers, and I of-
ten talked about and this is the fact
that we reside in Florida and change
is often a necessary evil. Mr. Ayers
was also a great believer that when
people work together, the best pos-
sible solution will become a reality.
There have been many conversa-
tions held at the coffee shop as well as
in parking lots about the perspective.
of the Vision for the Town of Bell.All
of these communications aregood,
bit it is when the truth is made pub-
lic, that the cream will rise to the top.
This became apparent recently as
members of the council were pro-
vided with the information that the
Vision is only a guideline for what
the committee feels that the Town
of Bell should plan for. Through
the cooperation of the council real-
izing that the Town of Bell should
identify and begin to make plans
for the future, the council passed
the Vision proposal unanimously.


I agree with the Bell Town Coun-
cil and I want to congratulate the five
members for doing what is neces-
sary in preserving their neighborly
charm and at the same time begin to
plan and revise their Comprehensive
Plan and Land Development Regula-
tions to pave the way for the future.
Councilman Joe Akins said in a
Vision committee meeting that I at-
tended, "If we are not understanding
the needs of the community and plan-
ning for the future, we are standing
idly still and we are losing ground."
I see the Town of Bell to soon begin
to plan for their future and prepare for
what they want in their community.


Letter to the Editor
I want to commend the man who
directs traffic at the Trenton High
School each morning and each af-
ternoon, His job is a most difficult
situation with a challenging obstacle
of working traffic in four different
directions. He does his job with as
much patience as could be imagined
for such a thankless job. People get
agitated at times with the circum-
stances but he does the best he can
do. I just appreciate the good work he
does. Thank you.

the respect of intelligent people and

Remember Your Creator Demands Knowing Your Creator
(Kent Heaton)


The 12th chapter of Ecclesiastes is an oft quoted text
imploring youth to know the frailty of life and certainty of
death. The last verses of chapter 11 exhort youth to embrace
the law of sowing and reaping explained by the apostle Paul
in Galatians 6:7, "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for
whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Life is
about choices and making the right decisions. Verse one of
the twelfth chapter is the key to the whole message of
Ecclesiastes and in reality the answer to all of man's needs
revealed by God in His Divine Word: "Remember also thy
Creator in the days of thy youth, before the evil days come,
and the years draw nigh, when thou shall say, I have no
pleasure in them" (Ecclesiastes 12:1).
The command to.remember the Creator is not new with
Solomon. The Lord exhorted Israel to remember Him with
penalty of forgetting Him (Deuteronbmy 8). "But the
loving-kindness of Jehovah is from' everlasting 'to
everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness
unto children's children; to such as keep his covenant, and
to those that remember his precepts to do them" (Psalms
103:17-18). Being careful to remember the Lord was to
hedge one's mind about with His commandments,
judgments, and statutes (Deuteronomy 8:11).
The challenge for youth today is far more complex than
remembering the Creator they have to learn who He is!
Remembering the Creator suggests a mind that knows
something to remember. Our young people are struggling
with knowledge of the Creator because many homes do not

been having a hard time of it due to
the flood of farm-raised shrimp from
other countries being imported now.
Florida's shrimpers are caught by
lower and lower shrimp prices due
to the imported shrimp and higher
and higher fuel prices to power their
boats. I guess being a farmer's daugh-
ter has made me sensitive Io the plight
of those Amencans and Floridians
who pro\ ide us with our food. It only
takes afew minutes when picking out
produce to reach for a Florida grown
orange or when visiting a seafood
market to pass up shrimp that are not
wild caught.
Anyway, the following recipe is
one of my oldest and frankly one of
the best loved by our children. I'm
proud to say that Carrie now cooks it
more often than I do. It's a simple un-
complicated recipe for Shrimp Cre-
ole that has just the right kick to it.
We always serve it with garlic bread
and a salad.



1 1/2 to 2 pounds fresh wild shrimp
1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup chopped green pepper
1/4 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 cloves of garlic finely minced
1/4 cup butter or 1/8 cup butter and
1/8 cup bacon drippings
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon chili powder
Black pepper to taste
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups canned tomatoes
Worcestershire sauce
Cooked rice
Peel shrimp, remove sand veins and
tails, and wash. Cut large shrimp in
half. Cook onion, green pepper, cel-
ery and garlic in butter until tender;
blend in flour and seasonings. Add a
couple of shakes of Worcestershire
sauce. Add tomatoes and cook until
thick, stirring constantly. Add shrimp
and simmer uncovered abbut 15 minZ
utes or until shrimp are done. Serve
over hot rice. Makes 6 servings.

Daylight Savings.time begins this weekend, on March 11th. "Spring Forward" one
hour at 02:00 AM Sunday morning. If you don't want to "lose" an hour of your beauty
sleep, go to bed an hour earlier. Chances are, your computer and other electronic devices
that normally set to the correct time on the Daylight Savings dates, won't make the
change automatically until the first weekend in April. So, after you set your clock
systems on March 11, remember to check them again on April 8th, the first full weekend
in April that used to be the start of Daylight Savings time.
Tonight, March 8th, is the Executive Committee meeting for Trenton's Post 91 at
6:00 PM and the regular meeting night for the Auxiliary Unit 91 at 6:30. Come out to
these meetings and find out what is coming for Post 91 and Unit 91, and maybe see
where you might fit in to continue "ServingAmerica".
Next Thirsday night, March 15th, is the 'regular meeting night for
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91, and the American Legion 88th Birthday Celebration at Post
91. The evening will start at 5:30 PM with a donation dinner of corned beef and
cabbage until 6:45, then the Post meeting and the birthday cake. Come out to dinner and
stay for the meeting. The American Legion has programs benefiting the veterans and
the community. Come out to see if there is a place for you to fit in and work to benefit
our veterans, youth and community.
Saturday, March 10th is the Fourth District meeting at Dunnellen Post 58.
Registration begins at 09:00 AM and the meeting will begin at 10:00. There will be a
light luncheon following the meeting. The meeting usually lasts about two hours. The
Post commanders get a chance to speak and brag about what their Posts have been doing
and what is planned for the future, as well as the District Chairpersons telling what has
been.going on and what changes are coming down the line. Also you can visit with
Legionnaires from around the District and find out what they have working and see if it
will work in your Post. It is a great way to "network" with fellow Legionnaires and
Auxiliary members as well as meet new friends and greet old friends.
A note from the Veterans Administration reminds that March 2007 marks the
twentieth annual observance of Women's History Month, declared by Congress in 1987.
For more information about Women's History Month, you can visit the web sites of the
Navy's Office of Women's Policy, the National Women's History Project, the National
Women's History Museum, and the Women in Military Service for America.. Women
have served alongside America's. fighting men over the years, giving aid as nurses,
sometimes even servg in battle alongside their men. American history records such as
Molly Pitcher, in the Revolutionary War, and others who fought in battle or worked on
or near the battlefield as nurses and suffered through the shelling, bombing and attacks
just as the soldiers did. The month of March is dedicated to the women and their history
with America and American Freedoms.
An open invitation to all veterans: while Congress sets the dates of eligible service to
join the American Legion, a wartime veterans service organization, there are other
organizations that are part of the American Legion family. The American Legion
Auxiliary is made ip of wives, mothers, daughters and granddaughters of American
Legionnaires or deceased war veterans, and the Sons of the American Legion ( SAL) is
made up of the sons and grandsons of Legionnaires or deceased war veterans, so if you
do not fall under the eligibility dates set by Congress, you may be eligible for one of the
other groups in the American Legion Family, working together for a common cause.
Check with your local American Legion Post for more information.
Remember our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers daily, and here at home,
watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those called up for
service to America, helping out however and whenever we can. Remember the yqung
men from the Alert Academy Teams as they go about their training to help communities
in need as well.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

Mental Illness Support
Group To Meet
Sadly we hear almost everyday of
someone in our area that has been di-
agnosed with a mental illness. Some
are Bipolar, some eating disorders,
and a multitude of other diseases that
fit under the umbrella of mental ill-
ness.
Most of the patients are receiving
good quality care from health care
professionals. Our concern is with
the families, or care givers. Many
feel left out of the process, or are left
to grope in the dark about what is
happening to their loved one. Many
have said, "if I could only talk to


Bethel Crawford of Live Oak, Iris
Arnold of Inglis, and Loretta McKin-
ney ofBrooksville.
We will be celebrating our mom's
102nd birthday at Surrey Place Care
Center in Live Oak on Saturday,
March 10th. All family and friends
are invited to visit any time. Surry
Place Care Center is located at 110

We would like to thank the staff
and employees at Surrey Place for
the excellent care that they have giv-

Student Government
Planning Prom Promise
It is once again the crazy time of
year where proms are beginning to
occur for many high school students.
The Student Government at Tren-
ton High School is seeking support
in helping to educate these students
about the effects of drinking and
driving. Every year the Student Gov-
ernment puts on a mock accident the
week of the prom.
The Student Government along
with the Florida Highway Patrol, Gil-


Westport High School in Ocala.
We had teams compete in the Color
Guard, Unarmed Squad, Unarmed
Platoon, and Armed Squad events.
Our teams were very successful! The
Unarmed Squad and Unarmed Pla-
toon finished second and the Color


christ County Sheriff's department,
and EMS services demonstrate what
could happen when young students
drink anddrive.
The mock accident involves stu-
dents from the high school as well
as guest speakers. Prom Promise
is always an exciting event that the
Juniors and Seniors at THS look for-
ward to.
This week we will be asking our
community to support us in helping
promote an accident free prom night.
Any donations will be greatly appre-
ciated and will go towards the Prom

Trenton High School Engineering Academy

Students Undertake A New Design Problem


Shown from left is Jacob Wilson and Corey Flanders manipulating
weight on the MAGLEV to establish a point of balancefor level flight
down the guideway.


Engineering Academy
During the past two weeks of
school, the Trenton High School En-
gineering Academy students under-
took a new design problem. Each
student was required to design a self-
propelled magnetic levitation vehicle
capable of traveling the 40 feet of
existing magnetic guideway located
in the engineering classroom. The
conceptual MAGLEV design would
require the vehicle to use electro-
magnetic force (EMF) for support
and alternating current (ac) power for
propulsion! No wheels were allowed
in the design to support the vehicle.
Highly energy efficient, frictionless
transportation was the goal of the en-
gineering student's magnetic levita-
tion project.
Magnetic levitation transport, or
MAGLEV, is a form of transporta-
tion that suspends, guides, and pro-
pels vehicles via electromagnetic
force. This method can be faster than
wheeled mass transit systems, poten-
tially reaching velocities' comparable
to turboprop and jet aircraft (500 km/
h or approximately 300 mph).
The world's first commercial ap-
plication of a high-speed MAGLEV
line is the IOS (initial operating seg-
ment) demonstration line in Shang-
hai, China that transports people 30
km (18.6 miles) to the airport in just
7 minutes 20 seconds (at a top speed
of 431 km/h or'268 mph, average
speed 250 km/h or 150 mph). Both
Germany and Japan currently employ
MAGLEV as a means of mass trans-
portation. ifiaiddition, MAGLEV is
being studied for feasibility as a vi-
able means of mass transportation in
a variety of other countries as well as
the United States. However, scien-
Tfic and economic limitations as well
as political barriers have hindered


the widespread adoption of the tech-
nology.
MAGLEV technology has minimal
overlap with wheeled train technol-
ogy and is not compatible with con-
ventional railroad tracks. Because
they cannot share existing infrastruc-
ture, MAGLEVs must be designed as
complete, self-contained transporta-
tion systems. The term "MAGLEV"
refers not only to the vehicles, but
to the guideway system specifically
designed for magnetic levitation and
propulsion.
After learning the principles of
magnetic levitation in the classroom,
the engineering students worked to-
gether in two-person teams employ-
ing AutoCAD-2007 software for
their conceptual design plans. Once
the designs were approved, the en-
gineering students printed out scale
construction drawings to build from.
Utilizing common items such as
foam-core board, paper clips, wire,
rubber bands, magnets and other as-
sorted such materials they began the
construction process. The first step
was to construct a platform that suc-
cessfully levitated above the exist-
ing guideway. Secondly, a centering
system was developed to keep the
vehicle "centered" over the magnetic
"rails" once a propulsion system was
added. Next, students installed fan
type motors for the actual propulsion
system for their respective MAG-
LEV vehicles. The fan motors were
powered via alternating current (a/c),
which was routed down the left and
right sides of the central guideway.,
The engineering students quickly
learned that designing the project
was only half the battle. The real
work came in the form of "trouble-
shooting" all the problems that arose
during the construction and testing

phase of the project. These issues
included incorrectly located mag-
nets, unstable MAGLEV platforms,
drag reduction on the contact points,
effective electrical energy transfer
and torque generated by the fan mo-
tor; these quickly forced many of the
teams to regroup and redesign their
respective projects. The final step for
the students in the MAGLEV project
was a timed test flight down and back
on the 40 feet of MAGLEV track.

Medicare Part B
Deadline Approaching
By Clif Copeland
Social Security Public Affairs
Specialist
If you didn't sign up for Medicare
Part B medical insurance when you
first became eligible for Medicare,
you now have an opportunity to ap-
ply. But time is running out. The
deadline for applying is March 31,
2007. If you miss the deadline, you
will have to wait until 2008 to apply.
Medicare Part B covers some med-
ical expenses not covered by Medi-
care Part A (hospital insurance), such
as doctors' fees, outpatient hospital
visits, and other medical supplies
and services that are not covered by
Medicare Part A.
When you first become eligible for
hospital insurance (Part A), you have
a seven-month period (your initial
enrollment period) in which to sign
up for medical insurance (Part B).
After that, you have to pay a higher
premium unless you were covered
through an employer's group health
plan or a group health plan based on a
spouse's employment. You are given
another opportunity to enroll in Part
B during the general enrollment peri-
od, from January 1st to March 31st of
each year. But each 12-month period
that you are eligible for Medicare
Part B ind do not sign up, the amount
of your monthly premium increases
by 10 percent.'
You can learn more about Medi-
care by reading our electronic book-
let, Medicare (SSA Publication No.
05-10043) at www.socialsecurity.

One such rule change establishes
the Lower Econfina River Wildlife
Management Area (WMA)- in Taylor
County. The new WMA will offer 16-
day archery, three-day muzzleloading
gun, 42-day small game and nine-day
spring turkey seasons in addition to
fishing and frogging throughout the
year.
Quota permits won't be required
for any season, fires will be prohib-
ited, and rules will allow motorized
vehicles only on named or numbered
roads. East of the Lower Econfina
River, motorized vehicles will be al-
lowed only during periods open to
hunting. ATVs and motorcycles are
prohibited, but hunting with bird
dogs and dogs with a shoulder height
of less than 15 inches will be legal.
Hunting hogs with dogs is prohib-
ited.
Also, in Osceola WMA in Colum-
bia and Baker counties, the bound-
aries of the still and dog hunt areas
were reconfigured, increasing the
size of the dog hunt area by 17,000
acres and increasing the number of
dog hunt quota permits from 800 to
900. Dog hunters are required to use
designated roads to access the dog
hunt area during the fox, deer-dog
training and general gun seasons.
Hunters may possess dogs at the East
Tower Campground during the gen-
eral gun season.
On the Blue Springs Unit of Twin
Rivers WMA in Hamilton County,
bird dog training&p has been moved

What Is Autism
Autism is a complex brain disorder
that often inhibits a person's abil-
ity to communicate, respond to sur-
roundings, and form relationships
with others. First identified more
than 50 years ago, autism is typically
diagnosed by the age of two or three.
Autism affects people of all racial,
ethnic and socioeconomic back-
grounds.
Few disorders are as devastating to
a child and his or her family. While
some people with autism are mildly
affected, most people with the condi-
tion will require lifelong supervision
and care and have significant lan-
guage impairments. Many children
with.autism will never be able to tell
their parents they love them.
Studies by the U.S. Centers for


Disease Control and Prevention sug-
gest that the prevalence of autism
spectrum disorders has significantly
increased, from approximately four
in 10,000 in the early 1990s to as
many as one in every 166 births to-
day. Despite strikingly high preva-
lence, autism research remains one
of the lowest funded areas of medical
research by both public and private
sources.
Currently, the causes of autism are
unknown and there are no specific
medical treatments or cure. Physi-
cians have no blood test or diagnostic
scan that can definitively diagnose the
disorder. As such, the diagnosis of
autism is based solely upon observa-
tions of behavior. Despite increasing
national interest and high prevalence,
autism research is one of the lowest
funded areas of medical research by

both public and private sources.
Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)
encompass a group of neuropsychiat-
ric disorders characterized by deficits
in social interaction and communi-
cation, and unusual and repetitive
behavior. Some, but not all, people
with autism are non-verbal. The de-
gree of autism varies from mild to
severe in different individuals. Se-
verely afflicted patients can appear
profoundly retarded. The cause (or
causes) of autism are not yet under-
stood. However, it is widely believed
within the scientific community that
there is a strong genetic component
or predisposition to autism spec-
trum disorders. Researchers have
proposed that the immunological,
metabolic, and environmental factors
may also play a part in the etiology
of autism.
Facts About Autism:' 1 in 166 chil-
dren is diagnosed with autism, 67
children are diagnosed per day, more
children will be diagnosed with au-
tism this year than with AIDS, dia-
betes, and cancer combined; autism
is the fastest-gr6wing serious de-
velopmental disability in the United
States; autism costs the nation over
$90 billion per year, a figure expected
to double in the next decade; autism
receives less than five percent of the
research funding of many less preva-
lent childhood diseases. Boys are
four times more likely than girls to
have autism; there is no medical de-
tection or cure for autism.
Incidence vs Private funding: Leu-
kemia affects 1 in 25,000/funding is
$310 million; Muscular Dystrophy
affects 1 in 20,000, funding $175
million; Pediatric AIDS affects 1 in
8,000, funding $394 million; juve-
nile diabetes affects 1 in 500, fund-
ing $130 million; autism affects 1 in
166, funding ONLY $15 million.


Take Stock In Children
Scholarship Application
Deadline Approaches
By Rena F. Violette, Lake City
Community College Take Stock in
Children program specialist
What is Take Stock in Children
(TSIC)? It is more than an opportuni-
ty to provide an education for a child;
it is an opportunity to change a child's
life forever. TSIC improves the lives
of youth by providing college schol-
arships, mentors, enrichment activi-
ties, and a support program designed
to prepare students for success. The
program was developed as a solution
to some of the most critical problems
facing people of the state of Florida
which are high dropout and youth
crime rates. Take Stock in Children's
96 percent success rate has proven
to overcome obstacles such as child
poverty, academic failure, and youth
crime.
The local TSIC Program is admin-
istered through the Lake City Com-
munity College Foundation. Since
1995, the Foundation has purchased
or acquired 281 TSCI scholarships

for deserving lower income students
in the five-county district (Baker, Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union
counties). There are currently 142
TSIC students attending high school
in the district and 79 TSIC students
using their scholarships at LCCC.
Qualified students-from the district
are selected after completing schol-
arship applications during the last
quarter of their eighth-grade year.
Applications for this year's program
are due April 16th. Students' and
their parents) or guardians must sign
a contract making several pledges:
remain drug and crime-free; maintain
satisfactory grades (2.0 GPA); meet
with a mentor an hour per week; and
adhere to the school code of conduct
until graduation. In turn, they are giv-
en the promise of a college scholar-
ship and the support of a caring men-
tor. If a student successfully meets the
criteria throughout four years of high
school they are awarded one of two
scholarships: a two-year scholarship
to Lake City Community College or a
two-plus-two-year scholarship which
provides two years of education at
LCCC and two years of education at
an institute of higher learning. Those
who do not fulfill their contracts lose
their scholarship and their place in
the program.
How can you help? You can ac-
tively change a child's life with the
gift of hope for the future by becom-
ing a mentor. Sir Winston Churchill
said it best, "To each there comes
in their lifetime a special moment
when they are figuratively tapped on
the shoulder and offered'the chance
to do a very special thing, unique to
them and fitted to their talents. What
a tragedy if that moment finds them
unprepared or unqualified for that
which could have been their finest
hour."
Since January, which was Nation-
al Mentor Month, volunteers from
Baker, Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Union counties were recruited to
serve as mentors for the next student
selection to take place in May 2007.
Having an adequate number of men-
tors is important because students
cannot sign for their scholarship
without being matched with a men-
tor. Mentors complete an application,
undergo a background check, and
attend a mentor orientation training
class prior to being matched with
a student. A mentor becomes a role
model, a tutor, and a friend. Mentors
guide their student match toward a
college education and a successful
life. .
i Other ways community mem-
hbers, .and, organizations, can help
are through private contributions,
planned gifts, payroll deductions,
and special event fundraising. These
funds are usually matched 100 per-
cent by the state of Florida and the
Florida Prepaid Foundation. These
are the main sources which fund the
scholarships purchased for the TSIC
program. For the past six years, the S
and S Invitational Charity Golf Tour-
nament has been a large contributor
to both the Foundation and the TSIC
program. This year, the S and S In-
vitational Charity Golf Tournament
will be held on April 20th, at the
Southern Oaks Golf Club. The golf
tournament will benefit Haven Hos-
pice, the Foundation, and Take Stock
in Children.
Please take time to consider volun-
teering as a Take Stock in Children
mentor over the upcoming month.
You can make a difference...take
part in shaping the future of our com-
munity's youth!

McCollum Announces
$8 Million Multi-State
Settlement With Bayer
Company To Register, Post
Results Of Clinical Trials
Attorney General Bill McCollum
announced that Florida and 29 addi-
tional states have reached an $8 mil-
lion settlement with Bayer Corpora-
tion, resolving an investigation into
the marketing of a drug to lower cho-
lesterol. The settlement was part of a
consumer protection enforcement ac-
tion initiated over concerns that Bay-
er failed to adequately disclose safety
risks associated with Baycol.
In May 1998, Bayer began mar-
keting Baycol, a type of cholester-
ol-lowering drug known as a station.
Statins carry a known risk of my-
opathy, a weakening of the muscles,
as well as a more serious muscular
disease. Through post-marketing
studies of its product, Bayer learned
that the risk associated with Baycol
was significantly higher compared
to other stations, particularly at higher
doses and when combined with an-
other particular cholesterol-lowering
drug. Baycol was withdrawn from
the prescription drug market in Au-
gust 2001.
The investigation, initiated by the
states in 2004, alleged that while
Bayer informed the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration about these ad-
verse effects, the company failed to
adequately warn consumers.
"Manufacturers shouldn't be al-
lowed to hide medical information
that doctors rely on to prescribe the
correct medicine for their patients,"
McCollum said. "This could po-
tentially harm our citizens and their
safety is our priority."
Today's settlement requires Bayer
to pay a total of $8 million to the 30
participating states. Florida's share
of the settlement funds is $200,000
and will reimburse taxpayers for the
cost of the state's investigation. The
company must also register most of
its clinical studies and then post the
results at the end of each study. Bayer
is required to fully comply with the
state laws regulating the marketing,
sale and promotion of its pharma-
ceutical and biological products. The
company is further prohibited from
making false and misleading claims
relating to any such product sold in
the United States. The settlement,
filed today in Broward County in the
form of a consent judgment, is await-
ing approval from a circuit judge.
In addition to Florida, participat-
ing states include Arizona, Arkansas,
California, Connecticut, Delaware,
Kansas, Kentucky, Idaho, Illinois,
Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachu-
setts, Micliigan, Mississippi, Mon-
tana, Nevada, North Carolina, Ohio.
Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carol-
na, S6uth Dakota, Tennessee, Texas,
Vermont, Virginia, Washington and

Water Management
District To Hold
Meeting
The Stwanrnec River Water Man-
agement District (District) will host
a meeting on Thursday, March 15, to
receive public comment on the rec-
ommended minimum flows and lev-
els (MFLs) for the Waccasassa River
and its springs.
The meeting will be held from 7:00
p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in Bronson at the
Levy County Agricultural Center,
625 N. Hathaway Ave., Alternate
27A.
Florida Statutes require that MFLs
- water levels and flows designed
to prevent significant harm to water
resources be established for water
bodies. The District has gathered
technical data and information to de-
velop the MFLs for the Waccasassa
River and its springs.
MFLs are used in the water supply
planning process and for determining
water availability for consumptive
use purposes. In addition, they pro-
vide guidance in making water use
and permitting decisions; ensure suf-
ficient water resources for the public
and ecosystems; protect wetlands,
fish and wildlife habitat; and provide
protection of water resources for nav-
igation and recreation.

Social Security Website
Now Even Easier To Use
By Clif Copeland
Social Security Public Affairs
Specialist
Social Security has introduced a
new home page design at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov and it's easier to use
than its highly-acclaimed predeces-
sor.
Because more and more people are
doing business on the Internet, Social
Security is committed to making it
easy for you to conduct your Social
Security business online. The rede-
signed home page will help you find
what you're looking for faster arid
more efficiently.
Some of the more noticeable chang-
es to Social' Security's home page
include: easier access to Frequently
Asked Questions, one of our most
popular features; more drop-down
menus instead of long lists of links;
a search box located directly on the
home page; a more visible login but-
ton for people who already receive
benefits and have a password; and
a quick reference list of links to our
most popular online services.
Our most frequently used online
services include applying for ben-
eiats online, repling a os, stolen or
damaged Medicare card, requesting a
proof of Social Security income let-

grams for the same losses. According
to Kelley, producers who received a
Federal Crop Insurance indemnity
payment will not be eligible for pay-
ments under the 2005 Hurricanes
Citrus Program, Tropical Fruit Pro-
gram, Fruit and Vegetable Program,
and Nursery Program. An exception
to this is that although an indemnity
payment was received, producers
may be eligible for the clean-up por-
tion of the Nursery Program. Some
producers may have little documen-
tation of losses as a result of hurri-
cane devastation; however, USDA
will require producers to provide
all available documentation. Inter-
ested farmers may contact their local
USDA Service Centers for further in-
formation on eligibility requirements
and application procedures for these
and other programs.
Early this year, USDA announced
$2.8 billion in aid to assist victims of
the 2005 hurricane season. USDA
provided approximately $1.2 billion
of those funds through nine disaster
programs. Details about these and
other disaster programs are available

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met March 1st
at the Levy County Quilt Museum.
After a wonderful morning rain, ev-
eryone got busy and we had a great
day. The Log Cabin Quilt that we
will give away at the Quilt Show in
December is finished and hanging for'
all to see. The pattern is so different
and to us it is a very beautiful quilt.
We plan to make another one but use
different colors.
The Butterfly quilt is finally in the
frame and we can get it quilted. The
squares were ordered from a craft
house but we ended up with three
different colors of white. All white
is not the same. The squares had to
be taken apart and put back with less

squares but it will make a great quilt.
Two more rows on two quilts and
they will be done. One is our Water-
melon quilt and one is an appliqued
flower. Quilting does take time and
this is why we ask people to take care
of a hand-quilted quilt.
Greg and 6 boys were out Tues-
day and we will soon be getting our
garden ready to plant. Thanks Lan-
caster.
Lunch was great with rice, hot dogs,

These three Springhouse members arrived all excited for the Petal Play
workshop last Tuesday. They are left to right, Jan Litzinger, Alice
Gilbert, and Faith Stanton.


Springhouse Quilters
News
The Petal Play Redbird workshop
for February was well attended by
Springhouse Quilters. Joyce Snod-
dy conducted the workshop and gave
many tips and ideas for completing
the quilted 3-D redbird picture quilt.
This is the second time this workshop
has been offered due to the interest
from the membership.
Anna Gilliam and her committee
has been working hard in getting the
2007 raffle quilt together and ready
for quilting. This quilt is made using
lots of blues and many different quilt
blocks. At least 30 members made a
block for inclusion into the quilt. It
will exciting to see the quilt top and
how the blocks were all arranged into
the full quilt.
The excitement for the Stack and


Whack quilts is still continuing. The
quilts go together so quickly that it'
makes it a lot of fun to cut and piece
one of these quilts. Several members
have tops ready for quilting. Quilt-
ing machines have stayed busy just
keeping up with this work.
We have had some members or
family members who have had some
very difficult illnesses. To each of
these we do wish them a speedy re-
covery so their beautiful quilting can
continue. The next regular meeting
for Springhouse will be on March
13th beginning at 9:00 a.m. at the
Springhouse Quilt House on High-
way 26 west of Trenton.
For information on Springhouse
Quilters, contact Jan Litzinger 463-

Warm Temperatures,
Lack Of Rainfall
Increases Wildfire
Threat, Bronson Says
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson today warned of a higher
wildfire threat this spring due to
warm temperatures and a lack of
widespread rainfall. Although wild-
fires can occur throughout the year
in Florida, the most active time for
wildfires is from March to June. Be-
cause of the higher wildfire danger,
Bronson is asking all Floridians to be
extremely careful with outdoor burn-
ing.
"People are the major cause of
wildfires in Florida whether it is the
crime of arson, escaped fire from
land-clearing, children experiment-
ing with matches or an unattended
yard fire," Bronson said. "People are
responsible for about 85 percent of
all Florida wildfires."
For many people, disposing of
yard waste (leaves, grass clippings,
tree limbs, palm fronds, etc.) with a
small fire is a routine part of spring
cleaning. This is activity is permitted
in most Florida counties without any
specific authorization.
Bronson emphasized that 'the fire
.must be attended at all times and be
in a pile no greater than 8 feet in di-
ameter, or in a noncombustible con-
tainer. In addition, the fire must be
at least 25 feet from the home of the
person burning or'any wooded area,
at least 50 feet from any paved road-
way and at least 150 feet from other
occupied buildings.
If the wildfire threat becomes se-
vere, counties, municipalities or the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services could enact
a bur ban that prohibits all outdoor
burning until weather conditions im-
prove. Residents should check with
their local office of the Florida Di-
vision of Forestry or the nearest fire
department to learn if a burn ban is
in effect and how to bur legally and
safely.
"We all need to be sure that our
carelessness does not create a wild-
fire that endangers the property of
others," Bronson said.
Inadequate or widely scattered
precipitation typically means an in-
creased wildfire danger and is moni-
tored by the Keetch-Byram Drought
Index (KBDI). The Keetch-Byram
Drought Index measures the amount
of moisture in the upper three feet of
soil on a scale which ranges from 0
(flood conditions) to 800 (desert-
like conditions). In recent weeks, the
KBDI has risento a statewide average
of 404, with a simultaneous increase
in the number of \' !lidnel. Twenty'
percent of the state is now recording
KBDI measurements of over 600.
The Division of Forestry maintains
a toll free Arson Alert Hotline 1-800-
342-5869, for anonymous tips on ar-
son in wooded or forested areas and
offers a reward of up to $5,000 for
information leading to the conviction
of an arsonist.
Since January 1st, the Division of
-Forestry has responded to 516 wild-
fires that have burned 31,470 acres.


USDA Offers Low-
Interest Emergency
Loans To Farmers In 14
Disaster Declared
Counties
Farmers in 14 north and central
Florida counties that suffered signifi-
cant damage caused by recent storms
may apply for low-interest Emer-
gency Loans from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Farm Service
Agency (FSA), said Kevin L. Kelley,
FSA State Executive. These loans
currently carry an interest rate of 3.75
percent.
Eligible farmers can use emergen-
cy loan funds to overcome physical
losses, such as repair .or rebuild es-
sential farm buildings, clean debris
or prepare land for replanting, and
to replace livestock, supplies and
harvested crops on hand or in stor-
age that were lost. Eligible farmers
can also use emergency loan funds
toward production losses, to recover
a portion of losses on growing crops
that were destroyed.
Four central Florida counties-Lake,
Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia-were
recently named Presidential major
disaster declaration areas as a result
of severe storms and tornadoes that
occurred February lst-2nd, 2007.
Producers in these counties and in
the following contiguous counties
may apply for low-interest Emergen-


cy Loans from FSA: Brevard, Citrus,
Flagler, Hernando, Marion, Orange,
Osceola, Pasco, Polk, and Putnam.
Emergency Loan Program appli-
cations for physical and production
losses are due in county FSA offices
by October 3, 2007.
Volusia County was also declared
a Presidential Major Disaster area on
February 8, 2007, as a result of se-
vere storms, tornadoes and flooding
which occurred on December 25,
2006. Producers in that county and
in the following contiguous counties
have until October 9, 2007, to sub-
mit applications for FSA Emergency
Loans: Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Mar-
ion, Orange, Osceola, Putnam, and
Seminole. Producers in these coun-
ties have until October 9, 2007, to
apply for Emergency Loan Program
assistance.
Presidential major disaster declara-
tions, must be requested by a gover-
nor to the President, are administered
through the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA). A Presi-
dential major disaster declaration can
be made within days or hours of the
initial request.
Farmers in eligible counties have
eight months from the date of the
declaration to apply for loans to help
cover part of their actual losses.
Qualified farm operators in the des-
ignated areas eligible for low interest
emergency (EM) loans, provided
eligibility requirements are met, and
FSA will consider each loan applica-
tion on its own merits, taking into
account the extent of losses, security
available and repayment ability.
"Unpredictable weather events put
farmers at risk in producing a de-
pendable and affordable food supply.
We are pleased to be able to provide
Emergency Loan program assistance
to producers as quickly as possible,"
said Kelley.
The FSA has a variety of programs,
in addition to the EM loan program,
to help eligible farmers recover from
adversity. USDA has also made other
programs available to assist farmers
and ranchers, including the Emergen-
cy Conservation Program, Federal
Crop Insurance and the Noninsured
Crop Disaster Assistance Program.
For more information on disaster
assistance, contact a local USDA Ser-
vice Center or Farm Service Agency
office or visit USDA's website at

Donates $50,000 For
Florida Disaster
Recovery Fund
Progress Energy Florida an-

the ne\1l) 'named' Florida Disaster
Recovery Fund to help victims of last
week's devastating tornadoes in Cen-
tral Florida. Funding will come from
the Progress Energy Foundation:
The Florida Disaster Recovery
Fund, which Gov. Charlie Crist an-
nounced will be designed to meet the-
long-term recovery needs of Florid-
ians affected by natural disasters.
"Last week's tragic storm was dev-
astating for many Central Florida
families, and we understand the ef-
fect that these events can have on
communities," said Jeff Lyash, presi-
dent and chief executive officer of
Progress Energy Florida. "Our em-
ployees also live and work in these
communities, and we all need to pull
together and support one another as
we work to rebuild."
About 420 Progress Energy em-
ployees and contractors traveled to
Central Florida to help restore elec-
tric service for residents.
Donations to the Florida Disas-
ter Recovery Fund are used to help
meet needs that are unmet by insur-
ance, government and immediate re-
lief assistance. A contribution to this
fund ensures the donation remains in
Florida and helps the recovery efforts
from last week's disaster.
The Progress Energy Foundation
supports programs and activities that
improve the lives of customers and,
through it, the company takes an ac-
tive role in building and supporting
communities. The foundation was
formed to distribute philanthropic
funds in the company's Florida,
North Carolina and South Carolina
service areas.
Progress Energy Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Progress Energy provides
electricity and related services to
nearly 1.7 million customers in Flor-
ida. The company is headquartered
in St. Petersburg, and serves a terri-
tory encompassing more than 20,000
square miles including the cities of
St. Petersburg and Clearwater, as
well as the Central Florida area sur-


rounding Orlando. Progress Energy
is the 2006 recipient of the Edison
Electric Institutes' Edison Award, the
industry's highest honor, in recogni-
tion of its operational excellence. In
2005, the company also received the
prestigious J.D. Power and Associ-
ates Founder's Award for dedication,
commitment and sustained improve-
ment in customer service. For more

March Is Women's
History Month At Lake
City Community College
byVickie Lepore, coordinator
library research
Have you ever considered where
we might be today if women in his-
tory had not moved forward to de-
mand their rights? Well, let's see.
How many would be attending col-
lege? Would we have voting and le-
gal rights, purchasing power, or equal
access to information? Aren't you
just a tiny bit glad that our lives have
included and extended beyond the
baby-bread-quilt-making world?
For many of us, though, learning
any kind of history is not our "cup of
tea." We understand. So, to celebrate
the March 2007 Women's History
Month, the Lake City Community
College (LCCC) Women's History
Committee has planned a variety of
"edutainment" events this year. Dis-
cover how "Generations of Women
[are] Moving History Forward," not
only in Columbia County, but in the
world, as well.
If you like to socialize, you are
invited to join us at the Women's
History Proclamation on Thursday
March 1st, at 9:30 a.m. in the LCCC
Library. The "kick-off event" will
offer refreshments, and we will see
a five-minute montage of famous
women, and listen to a student's per-
spective about what women's history
means to the younger generations.
After the brief program, you are in-
vited to browse around and preview
a few documentary films in different
areas of the library.
March 9th is the deadline for the
community to nominate women's or-
ganizations for the Columbia County
Women's Organization of Distinction
Award. The nomination form was
published in the Lake City Report-
er on February 4th, and it can also
be accessed through the Women's
History Web site at http://lcccwh.
blogspot.com. Don't be modest!
This is the time to brazenly brag
about your women's. group valuable
achievements and services in Colum-
bia County!
If you like to absorb your history
through films, the college will of-
fer several public viewings of films
produced and directed by women. A
preview of these films will be offered
at the proclamation, and you can pick
up the schedule\ of viewings, also.
These award-winning documentaries
feature present-day women who are
building, repairing and protecting
their communities, and training future
generations of women to move their
world forward constructively. The
films, all produced and directed by
women, are: God Sleeps in Rwanda
(reconstruction of African communi-


ties after the genocide); Every Grain
of Sand (Mexican women fighting in-
ternational corporations); Sisters-In-
Law (female judge and lawyer from
Cameroon mete out justice to child
and spouse abusers); and Heart of the
Sun (about Hawaiian surfing legend
and breast cancer activist). Organize!
(These are five different projects that
are training younger generations to
be effective social agents.)
To our community of readers,
media specialists and librarians, the
LCCC Library extends an invitation
for you to visit our Women's History
display of new titles, and especially
our forthcoming titles that present
role models for young people to emu-
late. A few of the titles include:
Keep Climbing, Girls by Beah
Richards is a picture-book of a 1951
poem encouraging girls to aspire to
their dreams (Preschool-Grade 2); Ju-
lia Morgan Built a Castle by Celeste
Mannis describes the first Califor-
nian woman architect who designed
William Randolph Hurst's castle,
San Simeon (K-Grade 3); Nature's
Machines: The Story of Biomecha-
nist Mimi Koelh by Deborah Parks
describes how Koelh developed this
scientific discipline that investigates
how animals exist in their environ-
ments (Grades 4-7); My Last Skirt:
The Story of Jennie Hodgers, Union
Soldier by Lynda Durrant (Grades
7-10); and Ilse Bing Photography

FDOT Proposes Four
Laning Of SR 26
(Continued from Page One)
two-lane urban roadways with side-
walks and bicycle lanes, both set
within 60 feet of right-of-way. The
cost for this option is over $48 mil-
lion and a total of 19 homes and 19
businesses will have to be relocated.
If this option is picked a total of 15
community facilities will be impact-
ed. The length of this roadway plan is
4.29 miles. The lengths of both one-
way lanes are added together to get
the 4.29 total.
Plan three calls for an Urban 4-
Lane and it shows the current path for
26 but widens the roadway to 4 lanes
utilizing an urban typical section
with sidewalks and bicycle lanes set
within 128 feet of right-of-way. This
plan would cost over $45.5 million
and is 2.99 miles in length. A total of
9 residential relocations and 17 busi-
nesses will be relocated. The number
of Community Facilities that will be
impacted is 11. The right-of-way cost
$28.49 million and roadway cost is
$17.14 million. The length of this
roadway plan is 2.99 miles. Width of
this roadway is 128 feet.
The fourth and last plan is the Ur-
ban One-Way Pair, SR 26 will be the
westbound lanes and 2nd Avenue
South will be the eastbound lanes.
This lane will separate from Hwy.
26 about V2 mile west of the entrance
to Trenton Elementary School and
rejoin existing SR 26 about /4 mile
east of the intersection of CR 319.
This plan calls for the additional
one-way lane to be built on the South
side of 26. The alternative typical
section will consist of two, two-lane
roadways with sidewalks and bicycle
lanes, both within 60 feet of right-of-
way. The price tag for this route is
over $40 million. Some 15 residen-
tial relocations will be called for in
this plan and 11 business relocations
will be needed also. The length in
lane miles is 5.17 miles.
According to the plan presented
at the meeting, the rural area of the
four-lane will be a divided roadway.
The alternative's typical section will
consist of a rural, controlled access
highway set with a minimum of 324
feet of right of way.


Those who attended the meeting
were told that they had until April 1
to make any comments or suggestions
about the proposed routes. Those
comments can be made in writing to
Ms. Debrah Miller, Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation, 1109 South
Marion Avenue, Lake City, Florida
32025 or Email: debrah.miller@dot.
state.fl.us. There will be an addition-
al public hearing this summer where
the preferred route will be revealed.
The next steps following last
week's meeting, the State Road 26
project team will consider the pub-
lic input and modify the proposed
concepts, as appropriate. Impacts to
the social, natural and physical en-
vironment will be further evaluated,
and the development of conceptual
plans will be completed. With FHWA
approval, the FDOT will make the
conceptual plans and all supporting
documentation available for public.
review and hold a public hearing later
this year. Following the public hear-
ing, the project will be finalized.
Once this phase is completed and
possibly accepted by the FHWA aka
Federal Highway Administration, the
project will be eligible for federal
funding. When funding is available
the project will enter detailed design,
preparation of construction docu-
ments, and right-of-way acquisition.
Completion of these phases allows a
project to proceed into construction.
If these phases are funded, this pro-
cess would take a minimum of three
to five years. In the case of SR 26, no
funds have been allocated for design
or construction, nor are the design and
construction phases of the project in
the Five Year Work Program. There-
fore, upon completion of the PD&E,
the project will not proceed to design
until such funding is available.
During the recent meeting held in
Newberry FDOT presented five al-
ternatives for passing through or by-
passing Newberry. The plan consists
of widening an alternative existing
roadway (5th Ave) through New-
berry, a one-way pair alternative, two
new alignments to the north of New-
berry, and one new alignment to the
south.
If this plan is funded it will take
more than 10 years before the ac-
tual construction begins. If built, the
new 4-lane roadway from Newberry

Resurfacing of SR 26
To Begin April 1
(Continued from Page One)
Pedestrian signals at the intersec-
tion of SR 26 and US 129 in Trenton.
The DOT will also include the ad-
dition of a five-foot paved shoulder
along the east and westbound traffic
lanes that currently do not exist. The
project will also include the extend-
:ing and changing the end of drainage
pipes (culverts) under driveways and
side streets to meet the latest safety
regulations. The replacement of cul-
verts under certain driveways will
also be done. The DOT will also repair
the damaged sidewalks and include
the addition of wheelchair accessible
ramps to sidewalks in Trenton and
Newberry. The addition of guardrails
just west of SE 63rd Terrace will be
put in place for improved safety. The
replacement of a flashing school zone
signage will be added in Newberry.
The replacement of mailboxes to
meet all FDOT safety requirements
and the replacing unpaved driveways
with milled asphalt will be included
in the project. The removing of two
driveways at the First Baptist Church
on the north side of SR 26 west of
NW 206th St in Newberry will be in-
cluded in the resurfacing project.
The Traffic impacts will include no
lane closures Monday through Friday
between 6:C0 and 8:30 a.m. The proj-
ect will not have nighttime paving al-
lowed because of noise and the adja-
cent homes. The access to residences
and businesses will be maintained at
all times.

LCCC Future Teacher's
Club Book Collection
Project

Recently, the Lake City Commu-
nity College (LCCC) Academy of
Teacher Preparation Program Fu-
ture Teacher's Club (FTC) made an
impact on the students of Niblack
Elementary School. The second an-
nual book drive for under-privileged
children at some local schools was a
huge success thanks to special dona-
tions from Hopeful Baptist Church
and an anonymous donation.
The club's goal for their book drive
was 750 books; however that goal
was surpassed by collecting 1,400
books, almost double their goal! The
children received two books, a book-
mark, and some candy.
The cost of the books received
for this project was between $2 and
$4.75. Averaging that amount for the
donated books; the drive contributed
approximately $4,500 dollars to sup-
port reading in schools! The Teach-
er's Club looks forward to an even
more successful year ahead.

ARE YOUR PROPERTY TAXES PAID????

Your property is one of your most valuable assets and the Gilchrist County Tax Collector's Office wants to
help you understand the consequences of not paying your property taxes.

Please realize, the failure to pay your property taxes will result in a lien being placed on your property and
additional charges and interest will be applied to your tax bill.

Property taxes become delinquent April 1st of each year. (additional monies will be applicable on this date)

If your current taxes remain unpaid by May 1st, payment to our office must be made by money order,
cashier's check or cash. (NO PERSONAL CHECKS ACCEPTED DURING THE MONTH OF MAY
FOR 2006 TAXES)

On or before June 1st, all remaining unpaid taxes will be sold at auction (VIA THE INTERNET) as a tax
certificate and a lien recorded on your property. When a certificate is sold on your property, the holder of
the certificate is actually paying your taxes and drawing interest on their investment. A certificate is valid
for seven (7) years, but the holder of the tax certificate can start a Tax Deed procedure against the property
after two (2) years, if the. property still remains unpaid by the land owner, these procedures could result in
the loss of your property.

PLEASE REMEMBER: IF YOU ARE THE CURRENT PROPERTY OWNER, IT IS YOUR
RESPONSIBILITY TO ENSURE YOUR PROPERTY TAXES ARE PAID. (CHAPTER 197.122 F.S.)
For your convenience our office has a website that you can check periodically as to the status of your
property. www.gilchristtaxcollector.com

To avoid additional charges and interest, and the potential risk of losing your property, the Gilchrist County
Tax Collector's Office wants to remind you that payment must be in our office by March 31st or if paying
during the month of MAY payment must be by cashier's check, money order or cash only.

If you have any questions, please feel free to call the office at (352) 463-3178 or 1-800-240-3207.
Thank You
Marilyn Bruce/CFC
Gilchrist County Tax Collector

FWC Asks Public For
Input On Species
Management Plans
People interested in helping Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) scientists ham-
mer out new management plans for
two animals that have lost ground in
their battle against the threat of ex-
tinction have the opportunity.
FWC has issued a call for interest-
ed persons to take a look at the draft
management plans for gopher tortois-
es and Panama City crayfish over the
next 48 days and share their thoughts
about how to make the plans better.
Both drafts are on the FWC Web
site, and anyone interested in the fu-
ture of these burrow-dwelling land
turtles or, crustaceans can log on' to


MyFWC.com, read the plans and of-
fer comments until April 4th. FWC
staff will incorporate comments into
the plans before the agency's Com-
missioners review them at their June
meeting.
Members of an FWC gopher tor-
toise issue team, with input from the
public and other stakeholders, have
been working on the draft of the Go-
pher Tortoise Management Plan for
the past year. The gopher tortoise's
classification would change from spe-
cies of special concern to threatened
if FWC Commissioners approve a fi-
nal draft of the management plan.
The plan includes details about im-
proving habitat, increasing protected
habitat, restocking gopher tortoises


and reducing the number of gopher
tortoises that die on development
sites.
Many other wildlife species share
upland habitat and will benefit from
gopher tortoise habitat protection too.
Those species include other imperiled
species such as the gopher frog, in-
digo snake, scrub jay and Sherman's
fox squirrel.
The Panama City crayfish exists
nowhere else in the world other than
a 55-square-mile area in Bay County.
In fact, the current population occurs
in a mere 18 square miles.
In September, the FWC established
the Panama City Crayfish Stakehold-
er Advisory Group to help develop
the draft management plan.
"The first draft incorporated exten-
sive public input. We are now look-
ing to Bay County residents to let us
know if it meets their expectations for
the species' recovery and the commu-
nity," said FWC's lead scientist on
Panama City crayfish, David Cook.
If FWC Commissioners approve
the plan, the Panama City crayfish
will be reclassified from a species of
special concern to threatened on the
state's imperiled species list.
The draft lays out the best manage-
ment practices to minimize impact to
the crayfish without requiring new
permits for road or power line con-
struction and maintenance, residen-
tial and commercial construction, or
tree farming.
"Activities that now require wet-
lands permits may not need anything
additional to accommodate the cray-
fish," Cook said. "We expect any ad-
ditional costs to local governments,
developers or residents to be mini-
mal."
The plan also proposes a no-cost
permit to harvest crayfish within the
Panama City crayfish range to ac-
commodate anglers who use them for
bait.
"It is difficult to distinguish Pana-
ma City crayfish from other crayfish
species, and it is not known to what
extent crayfish are collected for fish
bait within the, this species' range,"
Cook said. "The draft plan proposes
to establish the permit to gather such
information."

quest, an increase in salaries for all
existing sheriff's office employees
totaling $324,922 were paid in full by
the county commission. Likewise, the
sheriff requested a $190,990 increase


in his budget to cover increased in-
surance costs for his employees. This
request was also paid in full.
"Now that the courthouse project
has been funded and is nearing com-
pletion, the county has taken the ear-
liest possible opportunity to devote
substantial funds toward the design


of a new jail facility. Working with
the sheriff, the commission has se-
lected an architect for the new facil-
ity and has budgeted $200,000 in the
2006-2007 budget for architectural
fees," Durden said.

commission approved the reloca-
tion of the county road department
from land adjacent to the county jail
to a more central location between
Trenton and Bell. The allocation of
$504,587 in the 2006-2007 budget
for the move is of substantial benefit
to the law enforcement in the county
because it will free up the land next
to the existing county jail needed for
construction of the new jail, Durden
explained.
Despite Sheriff Turner's state-
ment that the county commission
is attempting to micro-manage his
department, Commissioner Durden
said that the cuts made to the sher-
iff's budget were relatively small and
entirely reasonable considering the
demands and constraints confronting
the county commission.
While the county commission does
not necessarily dispute the need for
three new bailiffs at the county's new
expanded courthouse facility, Dur-
den said that the county commission
determined that these new positions
should not all be funded prior to the
courthouse opening and prior to gain-
ing a better understanding of what
demands for bailiff services the new
courthouse will create.
"The commission funded one po-
sition to begin concurrent with the
opening of the courthouse and in-
vited the sheriff to come back, during
the fiscal year. 2006-2007 if neces-
sary, and request any additional bai-
liffs that are shown to be required in
, light of actual operation of the new
courthouse facilities," Commissioner
Durden said. "Although a new court-
room is being added to the Gilchrist
County courthouse, the number of
judges assigned to Gilchrist County
is not going to change over the com-
ing year and the court calendar will
remain essentially the same."
New security equipment will also
be installed in the new courthouse
during the final phase of construction
which is scheduled to be completed
in June or July, according to Clerk of
Court Joe Gilliam. This new equip-
ment could minimize the need for
new bailiffs.
"If funded as requested by the
sheriff, Gilchrist County would have
six full-time bailiffs, which would
be far more than any of the compari-
son counties identified by your staff.
Union County has one part-time, Hol-
mes County has one full-time, Gulf
and Jefferson Counties have two full-
time and Hamilton County has two
part-time," Durden said. "As actually
funded by the Gilchrist County Com-
mission, the sheriff will have four
full-time bailiffs in the comparison-
counties by two to four times."
A new clerical position for correc-
tions is a request the county commis-
sioners could not justify, according
to Durden, because there are cur-
rently two funded positions in the
corrections department that are not


I


yet filled.
The county commission also de-
termined that creating a new investi-
gator position was of low priority in
the 2006-2007 budget year. Durden
pointed out that the 2005 roster of
the sheriff's office shows five inves-
tigators, while the 2006 roster shows
only four. Thus the Sheriff himself
eliminated an investigator position,
thereby indicating his own belief that
having five investigators is not of the
highest priority, Durden explained.
Seven new patrol cars were also
not considered a high priority by the
county commission. Three of the re-
quested vehicles were for the three
new bailiffs. Because the county only
agreed to fund one new bailiff posi-
tion, there was obviously no need
to fund vehicles for all three of the
requested positions. With regard to
the one funded position, the Sheriff
failed to convince the commission

that the existing number of vehicles
available to the sheriff's office would
be inadequate to serve the bailiffs'
needs, Durden said.
In conclusion, Durden said, "With
all due respect to Sheriff Turner, the
county commission is at a loss to
understand how more could be ex-
pected."
A meeting of the cabinet on this is-
sue has been scheduled for April 3,
though Ball, acting as chairman of
the Administration Commission, en-
couraged the county commission and
Sheriff Turner to attempt to negotiate
their differences.
"There have only been 13 of these
budget appeals and only one appeal
has been successful," Ball said.
