Money Go?"

The Gilchrist County Commission
since the March 5th Budget Appeal
Hearing involving the Sheriff's bud-
get has extended the arm of negotia-
tions to the sheriff in an attempt to
work out the differences in the re-
quests the county's chief law enforce-
ment office wants for his department
in the 2006-2007 budget year.
The Gilchrist County Commission
in their March 6th meeting requested
their attorney John McPherson tocon-
tact the Sheriff and attempt to negoti-
ate the differences in the budget that
the five hemnber board was willing to
make conseilsus on. John McPher-
son met with the Sheriff on Friday,
March 9. This meeting covered 1.5
hours in the sheriff's office. McPher-
son reported to the board that he at-
tempted to negotiate with the sheriff
on issues of non-recurring budget
requests, such as patrol vehicles, and
left the recurring items, such as new
employees, for consideration as part
of the 2007-2008 budget process.
McPherson explained that the sheriff
did not give him a definite answer in
this meeting; he had followed up with
a letter to the attorney and the County
Commission involving his intention.
The Sheriff's letter to John
McPherson:
I would like to thank you for tak-


ing an hour and a half out of your
busy schedule and meeting with me
regarding the budget appeal. I, like
you, still wish that the whole Board
of Commissioners would have had
the opportunity to hear our justifica-
tions for the budget requests. There
are several points that I am uncer-
tain that the whole commission is
un-aware, i.e. Florida Department of
Management Services recommenda-
tion that pursuit vehicles be replaced
at 65,000 miles or 5 years of age, or
the liability associated with not pro-
viding the security that should be
implemented within the new court
facilities.
As I stated at the committee hear-
ing in Tallahassee, my projected fig-
ure if all items were approved would
low be $298,416 (6 months) instead
of the original $365,519 which was
for a 9 month period of the remaining
fiscal year. As you stated, next year's
budget will be even more difficult to
fund and therefore your suggestion
of purchasing a few vehicles now
and carrying over the other budget
requests (recurring costs; new per-
sonnel) to the next budget year is not
feasible.
When I inquired if the Board of
County Commission was willing
to address the issue (addressed by
the Cabinet committee) of possibly


bringing our funding up from our
$209 per citizen to the 5 comparison
counties average of $224 per citizen,
you advised that the Board of County
Commission would rather take their
chances with the Governor's appeal
process.
As pointed out in the Florida As-
sociation of Counties (FAC) study,
"Where Did the Money Go?" a major
function of government is to protect
and serve its population. The majority
of counties recognize the importance
of its law enforcement services with
over a 21% increase in our popula-
tion over the 6-year period of study.
I would hope that more attention be
given to our requests and not just that
of the general go ernment accounts.
John McPherson reported to the
Board of County Commissioners on
Monday in their March 19th meeting,
"I interpret this letter that the Sheriff
is not interested in negotiating any
of the differences he still requests
involving his 2006-2007 budget re-
quest."
McPherson reminded the board
that Mr. Randy Ball, the chairman
of the committee representing the
cabinet that heard the sheriff's bud-
get appeal, requested the Sheriff and
the Board of County Commission try
to negotiate and work out the differ-

water in both the office and the shop.
The tide turned for the 25 employ-
ees of the road department in 2006.
After nine years of talking about a
new building department facility, the
Gilchrist County Board of County
Commissioners was able to budget
for the complex.
"The road department was on the
bottom of the food chain for many
years, but we're moving up and I
think our services are improving,"
Cannon said.
Located on 10 acres, at 1770 US
129, .the new complex features a
large office inside a triple-wide mo-
bile home that was donated by the
Gilchrist County School Board, as
well as a spacious shop.
The road department is also start-
ing to get new equipment, according
to Cannon. Within the last two weeks,
the county has purchased a lift for the
shop, which will prevent employees
from having to spend grueling hours
on their backs repairing equipment.
Also, within the last three years,
Gilchrist County has purchased one
new dump truck and' two new dump
trucks were picked up through FEMA
funding.
With five motor graders in service
each day, the road department is re-


to grading, any road issue a resident
encounters can be addressed by the
road department.
"Most of the complaints we hear
are on rock roads and trimming,"
Cannon said. "It's important for peo-
ple to understand that we [building
department officials] are accessible 7
days a week, 24 hours a day. If the
secretary can't help you then she will
give out our cell phone numbers.
Once people call we put in a work
order and the turnaround time is typi-
cally about two weeks."
The road department tries to op-
erate on what is needed rather than
simple wants, according to Cannon.
"There is no comparison between
our old facility and our new facility!"
Cannon said.

Circuit Judge Stan Morris held
Trenton Rotary Club members spell-
bound on Monday as he spoke of
his tenure serving on Governor Jeb
Bush's conmuission to explore the
death penalty after a botched lethal
injection last year.
A guest of County Judge Ed Phil-
man, Morris said he served alongside
doctors, lawyers, scientists and law
enforcement officials on the lethal
injection committee. The committee
was formed two days after Angel Di-
az's execution took 34 minutes rather
than the standard 10 to 14 minutes.
"Everyone knew it took too long,
but no one knew why," Morris said.
"The bottom line from the governor
was that we needed to look at proto-
col by the department of corrections
that may need to be changed."
Once Governor Bush issued an im-
mediate moratorium, the committee
went about business hearing testimno-
ny from witnesses of the execution,
department of corrections emploN ee.s
as well as, toxicologists and doctors.
"The medical examiner, Dr. Bill
Hamilton said .the needle which
should have gone directly into his
veins, punctured his veins before
going into the-soft tissue around the


veins," Morris said.
The lethal injection committee met
seven times in Tampa, over 33 days,
in an attempt to gather enough infor-
mation to determine the real issue.
During the lethal injection process,
the inmate is first given an anesthetic
that is intended to put the inmate to
sleep. The second drug injected into
the inmate is intended to cause paral-
ysis. Finally, the third drug is a toxin
intended to stop the heart.
"In the middle of the execution he
began gasping for breath and said
three times, 'What is happening?"'
Morris said. "He was gasping like a
fish out of water.'
The executioners broke protocol
by not starting the injections over
when they switched lines to Diaz's
other arm, according to Morris.
"The real issue is that we do not
know if the second drug got in before
the first," Morris said. "If the first
drug does not work then the second
or third is like acid in the veins."
The second drug injected is used
for asethetic purposes so that the wit-
nesses will not see the inmate twitch-
ing, Morris explained.
"We've asked the governor if the
state should look at not using the"
second drug or substitute a different


drug. We recommend they clean up
the process. After administering the
first drug then someone should check
the inmate's level of consciousness,"
Morris said. "It's now in the hands of
Governor Crist. My prediction is the
moratorium will be lifted soon and
lethal injection will continue. I ex-
pect the procedure will change."
Taxpayers pay $15 million per one
inmate on death row, according to
Morris. Currently, there are 370 in-
mates awaiting the death penalty. An
average stay on death row spans 12
to 14 years.

Comments
by: John M. Ayers

Monday evening when I attended
the Gilchrist County Commission
meeting I expected Sheriff David
Turner and the County Commission
to establish a time when the two sides
would begin negotiations to come to
an understanding of what part of the
Sheriff's requested 2006-2007 budget
could be funded and what should be
addressed in the 2007-2008 budget.
As I listened to attorney John
McPherson give a report to the board
involving his communications with
Sheriff Turner, all I could hear was
that a stalemate has been reached be-
tween the elected officials.
As I took a closer look, I under-
stand that the County Commission
was willing to negotiate, but the Sher-
iff still wanted what he had originally
requested, but he is now reducing the
amount due to the time remaining in
the 2006-07 budget year.
SBoth the County Commission and
the Sheriff should realize that in Gil-
christ County, we.often have to ac-
cept somewhat less than the pot of
gold that is at the end of the rainbow.
I hope that when the recommenda-
tion from the chairman of the com-
mittee representing the cabinet, is
made public,.it ''.ill Force both s.idm
to become more realistic in their ne-
gotiations. .

I Have Failed In Life
(Kent Heaton)


Spencer Tracy is listed as one of the top one hundred
movie stars of all time. A superstar of the 1940 films, Tracy
became the first to receive back-to-back Oscars (1937/1938)
and was nominated for numerous other Oscars. From the
accolades given by men, Spencer Tracy is a pillar of
admiration for millions who have seen his films and admired
his work. In a conversation about Spencer Tracy, fellow
actor Burt Reynolds recalled the time he spent with the actor.
Reynolds, commenting on the unwavering success of Tracy's
work, asked if there was anything Tracy had every failed at.
Tracy replied, "I have failed in life."
It is easy to see great men for what we see them to be and
what we want them to be. Spencer Tracy is one of my
favorite actors and I look forward to seeing any movie he is
in. The truth about real life is that it is a harder master than
what Hollywood portrays on the silver screen. A former
Jesuit prep-school student who once intended to become a
priest, Tracy understood the true nature of life. I believe this
to be true for all men. No matter the successes of life and the
accomplishments of a lifetime of work, man is still created in
the image of God (Genesis 1:27). It is from this likeness of
God that all men possess a conscience that makes them
aware of their immortal being. The vast mnj.iri: of the
world has seared that conscience in rejection of God
(Matthew 7:13; Romans 1:28; Ephesians 4:19).
When life is measured by the rule oftrue'worth, the things
that men seek for are without value. Solomon sought all the
things that men seek today. He sought after wisdom and
concluded, "I have seen everything that is done under the
sun; and behold, all is vanity and a striving after wind."
(Ecclesiastes 1:14) Solomon sought after pleasure and
discovered that it was vanity. He filled his life with wine and
song and laughter and found it all to be without substance.
His possessions were multiplied beyond comparison with
houses, vineyards, gardens, parks, pools a.d forests of trees
but all this was empty. He writes, "And whatever my eyes


Street. Rose gardens do not exist and
market volatility is the nature of the
beast. Unfortunately, the relations of
a rising market often turn to greed,
whereas concerns over a decline
readily foment paranoia.
Preying on this predictable
turmoil of investor emotions, and the
associated vulnerabilities they create,
are the soothsayers and peddlers
of Wall Street. Together, they have
all the conscience of a cow in a
stampede.
Investing is about fundamental
value, not emotions. However,
ferreting out the necessary data is not
always easy. Nonetheless, your task
is to strip a company stark naked.
Look at its basic financial numbers;
analyze its product line, customer
base and management. Then top
off your analysis with some good
old-fashioned common sense. After
which, with all the pretenses and
hype gone, you can make an accurate
assessment of the company's true
value.
Indian guru Swami Parthasarathy
put' it well when he said, "The
mind is made up of your emotions,
feelings, impulses,, likes and dislikes.
The intellect thinks, judges, decides.
When the intellect is not strong
enough, the mind takes over and
plays havoc. You are the architect
of your fortune. You are also the
architect of your misfortune. Do not
blame the world."
Therefore, instead of worrying
about tomorrow's market trends
spend your time looking for additions
to your portfolio. One good example
is a company that I discussed here
a little over a year ago. Back then
Clorox's shares were selling at about
$61 per share. My earnings forecast
for the company's 2006 fiscal year
was $3.02 per share with a target
price of $71 per share at a multiple
or P/E of 21.
Clorox ended its fiscal year with
earnings of $3.04 per share and
the shares recently traded at about
$62 per share with a P/E of 20.79.
However, four weeks ago the shares
were trading at just under $67. In
my opinion, Clorox now represents
excellent potential for capital
appreciation over the next 12-18
months and here is why.
The intrinsic value of the shares
using a discounted earnings model
is $67.50 per share assuming a 10
percent earnings growth rate and a
discount rate of 11 percent. If you use
a free cash flow to the firm model, the
intrinsic value is $80 per share.
My earnings estimate for the
company's 2007 fiscal year is $3.26
per share,.resulting in a target price
for Clorox of $68.50 over the next
"12 months, restiiilig'im a capital
p.g.in of 10 percent: In addition there
is a dividend yield of 2 percent.
Furthermore, with a beta of about 0.5,
Clorox has about half the volatility of
the overall market.

desired I did not keep from them; I kept my heart from no
pleasure, for my heart found pleasure in all my toil, and
this was my reward for all my toil. Then I considered all
that my hands had done and the toil I had spent in doing it,
and behold, all was vanity and a striving after wind, and
there was nothing to be gained under the sun."'
(Ecclesiastes 2:10-11)
Does this sound familiar in your mad dash for all that life
will offer? Are we so consumed by the pursuit of this world
and all the accolades of men and glory of men and find that
in life we fail? Jesus posed this serious question for all to.
consider: "For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man
give in exchange for his soul?" (Matthew 16:26) When you
are closing your eyes in death, what will it matter how much
money you have in the bank? What will it matter if you
lived in a big mansion and drove expensive cars? What will
it matter that you filled your life with the pleasures of the
flesh? What really matters when death knocks on the door of
your heart?
Solomon's conclusion to his study of life (the book of
Ecclesiastes) is this: "Let us hear the conclusion of the
whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for
this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every
work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be
good, or whether it be evil." (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14) Life is
not about what we gain here but what we seek to gain after
death. Life is not about the praise of men but the praise of
the Father who says, "Well done, good and faithful
servant." (Matthew 25:23) Jesus said, "If any man would
come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross
and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it,
and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. ... For
the Son of man is to come with his angels in the glory of
his Father, and then he will repay every man for what he
has done." (Matthew 16:24-27)

Letter to the Editor
Dear John Ayers:
I was surprised to see the extensive
coverage provided to failed candidate
for Congress Dave Bruderly. Being
familiar with his campaigns against
Cliff Stearns, I would like to intro-
duce some facts.
Bruderly is being deceptive when
he states that he does not engage in
negative campaigning. In all of his
races he distorts Steams' record on
the issues from term limits to Presi-
dent Bush's agenda. Steams said he
supported term limits for all members
and he voted to term limit all mem-
bers. This bill failed, but Stearns did
exactly as he said he would.
As for the rubber stamp, indicat-
ing Stearns' lockstep march with the
President and the Republican lead-
ership, Steams voted against Trade
Promotion Authority for the Presi-
dent, against NAFTA, against Most
Favored Nation trading status for
China, against Leave No Child Be-
hind, and against congressional pay
raises. Steams also voted against the
bloated spending bills put together
by the previous congressional leader-
ship. This clearly shows the indepen-
dence of Steams.
Bruderly is also careless with the
facts on another issue--candidate de-
bates. Steams and Bruderly debated
each other in person over the radio in
2002. Bruderly also shows up fre-
quently at Stems' town meetings, a
public forum, to discuss the issues.
Thank you for the opportunity to
set the record straight.
Sincerely,
/s/ Albert Hemdon

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers
"The only thing that separates us
from the animals is our ability to ac-
cessorize."
Clairee Belcher
from Steel Magnolias

As we rush, rush, rush along seldom
do we find time to use a few of the
finer things in life that we may have
collected along the way. Something
as simple as a tablecloth is hardly
ever unpacked these days.
Over the last couple of years several
friends of mine and I have been col-
lecting old linens to use in our homes.
In the past few years I have been col-
lecting antique Damask tablecloths
from antique stores. The thing that
makes these cloths special is that
they are not only old but the fabric is
a much, much better quality than we
can buy new in the stores these days.
These old Damask tablecloths can
be found for $15.00 to $20:00. I'm
sure our long departed great-grand-
mothers and grandmothers would be
surprised that their old clothes have
become sought after items.
I once read, "A tablecloth is to a
table what jewelry is to a woman--it
completes the picture."
Mix and matched antique silver
plate silverware is another item that I.
collect and recently I've branched out
into old farmhouse dishes. Not fancy
china but the white dishes with a little
rim .of gold and pretty pink clusters
of flowers placed in the center of the
plate by a decal method. These dishes
were very popular during the 30s and
40s and were acquired sometimes by
collecting coupons from Silver Cow
canned milk and Octagon soap. Back
in that bygone era housewives would
collect the coupons and take them to
town where they were redeemed at a
local store for dishes.
As time went on our grandmoth-
ers packed these pretty old-everydacy
,Ji-bes away. I found several at my
grandparent's fish camp in Fowlers
Bluff and more still more at our hunt
camp. Funny how one generation's
cast-offs become the next genera-
tion's treasures. All and all my col-
lections makes our table look warm
and homey.
A dining table covered with a pale
pink Damask cloth and set with a
vintage collection of hand-me-down
mix-matched dishes and silver plate
forks and spoons doesn't look one bit
high falutin.' The table appears warm
and very inviting once it has an an-
tique vase of camellia or spring daf-
fodils placed in the center.




(I was told that this recipe came
from Joe's Stone Crab Restaurant in
Miami, but I'm not sure.)
Graham Cracker Crust:
1 cup plus 3 tablespoons graham
cracker crumbs


5 tablespoons melted butter
1/3 cup sugar
Filling:
3 egg yolks
Zest from two limes, grated (about
1 1/2 teaspoons)
1 (14-ounce) can sweetened con-
Sdensed milk
2/3 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
(If you can't get Key Limes use
regular limes)
Topping:
1 cup whipping cream whipped
4 tablespoons confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
To make pie crust:
Mix all ingredients and press into a
greased 9 inch pie pan. Bake the crist
at 350 degrees until set about 8 min-
utes. Cool.
To make filling:
Beat the egg yolks and lime zest at
high speed until fluffy, about 5 min-
utes. Gradually add the condensed
milk and continue beating for 4
minutes. Lower the mixer speed and
slowly add the lime juice, mixing just
until combined. Pour mixture into the
pie crust. Bake for 15 minutes or un-
til set at 350 degrees. Cool on rack
then refrigerate. Freeze the pie for at
15 minutes before you serve it.
For topping:
Whip the cream, the confectioners'
sugar and vanilla until nearly stiff.
Top each wedge of pie with large dol-
lop of whipping cream before serv-
ing.

The Veterans Administration at Malcom Randall VAMC is planning a Women
Veterans Appreciation Day on May 2, 2007. The program will be from 9:00 until 10:00
AM at the Lake City VA Medical Center, and from 2:00 to 3:00 PM at the Gainesville
VA Medical Center. The Program Manager, Cheryl Tillman, RN, has asked for possible
women speakers for the program.
The speakers would be from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and Gulf War through
the present eras. The women chosen as speakers will be asked to present 1) Name, rank,
branch of service; 2) what types of duties and jobs they performed while in service; and
3) any experiences the women veterans had while in service. Ms Tillman is also looking
for any mother and daughter veterans to speak about their time in service. The program
will also look at how the women veterans have advanced over the years. If you are
interested, or know any women veterans that might be interested in.being involved in
this program, contact Cheryl Tillman, Women Veteran Program Manager, North
Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System, 1601 SW Archer Road (118),
Gainesville, Florida, 32608-1197. The phone number is: 352-379-4064.
Post 91 Legionnaire, Carl Bondeson, passed away last week and.the funeral service
was last Friday. Many of us remember Carl and the light-hearted way he led the
Christmas carols at the Post Christmas parties some years ago. Carl had attended the
Post meetings when he was able to do so. Carl will be missed by many old-time
members of Post 91.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world each day in your thoughts and
prayers. Here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families
of those called to active duty in service to America, helping out however and whenever
we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

Remember Our Troops
Gilchrist Military
"Pray always," so the Bible says,
as a command for those who believe
that the Creator of the universe does
listen and does answer the heart cries
of those who come to Him. We live in
peace and freedom here in America
because of those who serve, and de-
pend on us here at home to consider
them,-especially when we pray; as
we consider the multitudinous jobs
which have to be rendered for our
protection, as well as times of expe-
rienced loneliness for those who are
far away from the familiar and dear
objects of their affection: mainly
family. So please make it a daily
habit of taking the time, in a quiet
place, to lift up those in service to
our country, especially of those who
names are listed below, for they are
ones who are the parents, children or
grandchildren of where we all live;
right here in Gilchrist County. (If you
do not see a name of someone you
know that you would like listed, who
is from our County or who is a son or
daughter of a resident, please contact
one of the associates of the Journal
and let them know.)

Bell Symphonic Band
Receives Superior At
District
Bell Symphonic Band returned
from District Assessment at Bradford
High School on Saturday with a Su-
perior rating. The additional practice
and performance during Fair Break
paid off, as the Band was only one
of four Bands to receive Superior in
District IV. The other Bands \ere
our larger counterparts. Bucholz.
Columbia and Gainesille High
Schools. The Superior rating makes.
the Bell Symphonic Band eligible to
attend the State assessment at the end
of April.
After a delay in the assessment
schedule, the Symphonic Band began
their performance of required pieces
at 12:30 p.m. The performance re-
quires a March, and two overtures,
one slow and one at a quicker pace.
The Bell Symphonic Band performed


the National Emblem, Ammerland
and Prelude, Sicilano, and Rondo.
Following their performance,
the musicians continue with their
assessment with the sight read-
ing. Theyare given three minutes
to study a March and perform the
music and five minutes to study an
overture and perform it. The over-
ture given to Bell was harder than
usual, but the adjudicator felt they
could handle it due to their perfor-
mnance. They did, receiving Supe-
rior in sight reading. Band Direc-,
tor,Todd Eckstein, said"That score
means more to me, as it shows me
that the students are learning from
the instruction."
After lunch the students stayed
at the assessment until the end to
watch the other Bands' perfor-
mances. A member of the Colum-
bia High School Instruction Team
came over to our students to tell


them that their performance of Am-
merland made him emotional and
that he thought more Bands might
perform that piece in the future.
The details for the State Assess-
ment will be announced as soon as
the Band is notified of the dates and
location.

From The
Shelves Of

The Bell

Library
Coming soon-watch for an an-
nouncement of the re-opening of the
library with new computers and an
upgraded children's department.
The Town of Bell is to be congratu-
lated for the work that they have done
to make this happen. There is a new
front which extends across the exte-
rior of the building. We will have no
more worries about the roof leaking
as there is a new roof in place.
Mr. Dan Cavanah, Bell City Man-
ager, has gone the extra mile to help
to make all this occur. After the con-
tractors finished, Mr. Dan arid a city
employee, Junior Kimbrell, could be
found painting and moving books.
This is not part of their job descrip-
tion, but they were happy to help with
the renovations. Thank You.
The volunteers led by Shirley An-
derson, their chairman, have spent
many hours preparing for the con-
tractors and are now putting things
back in order. Mrs. Iris Roberts,
President of thb Town of Bell Coun-
cil, and also a volunteer at the library,
has spent countless hours in planning
and working towards the day the li-
brary will re-open.
With the children's department, the
library will need more volunteers to
man that room and the front desk.
Please do not hesitate to volunteer,
we are asking you to serve only four
hours a week, but if you are available
more hours we will welcome that
time also.

SPRINhGHOUSE QUILTERS


Springhouse
It is unbelievable each month to
see so many new quilts on display by
Springhouse Quilters. And last Tues-
day, March 13th, during the monthly
meeting there was no shortage of
newly completed quilts. Diane Sch-
weider won the heart block raffle in
February and immediately went to
work assembling the quilt. In just one
month, she had the blocks all pieced
together. What a beautiful site to
see the quilt, beautiful in traditional
red, all put together and ready to be
quilted. Congratulations to Diane on
winning the blocks and assembling
the blocks into a quilt so quickly.
Some of the other quilts on dis-
play were Miriam Otera with her
completed community quilt, new-
member Barbara Mills showing her
staff flags, Sandra Crowhurst with a

One, a lavender Log Cabin and a
Card Tricks that was pieced by a 17
year old and she will quilt it. Its great
to see young people learning a craft
that they will never forget.
I can remember how it was done
many years ago from memories of
seeing my mother quilt. 80 years ago
thread was not made as it is today. A
pack of needles was 10 cents and most
quilts were hand pieced, never on a
machine. I've always been thankful
my mother taught me to quilt, em-
broider and make my clothes even if
they were out of feed sacks.
Just one more turn and the Water-
melon quilt will be done. As soon as
it's out, we will put another one in for

Rolling Oaks residents

await actual cost

of road paving special


assessment
by John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion was addressed by Rolling Oaks'
resident Michael Myers Monday
evening to present updated informa-
tion involving the use of the Special
Assessment funding program to pave
SE 62nd Court and SE 67th Court in
Rolling Oaks subdivision.
Myers explained to the board that
the cost of asphalt to pave the streets
in Rolling Oaks is $8.00 per square
yard. Each road is 3,850 feet in
length and would be paved to a 20-
foot wide driving surface. This issue
brought many Rolling Oaks property
owners to the meeting to listen to the
information that was being presented
to the commission by Myers. He also
presented copies of the estimates to
everyone in the audience that wanted
this information.
Gilchrist County Attorney John
McPherson asked Mr. Myers what
was the estimated cost that he had re-
ceived. Myers explained if Gilchrist
County will finance the project for 20
years at 6.5% the annual cost to each
property owner is estimated to be
$260.00 to $263.00 a year. McPher-
son explained that there are proposed
costs and the actual bids when they
come back from paving contractors
could be different.
Many residents addressed the board
speaking both in favor and against
the proposed project. The property
owners against the paving identified
that actual cost to them was a concern
as well as the increased value of the
property would cause their property
taxes to increase.
Commission Chairman Randy
Durden asked if the residents from
Rolling Oaks would vote involving
the proposed project by a show of
hands. The chairman, following the
straw vote announced that 26 voted
in favor while 9 voted against. The
'board agreed that there was enough
support in favor of the special assess-
ment road improvement to continue
this and schedule a public hearing in
a future meeting.
The Commission agreed to have
the attorney work with the engineer
to prepare documents to advertise for
bids for the construction. The chair-
man explained that when the bids are
received the public will be advised
and actual costs will be determined.
Apblic hearing ill then be held to
advise the public of the costs. The
commission will then determine if
the special assessment project is fea-
sible for the county and the residents
to undertake.
Ron McQueen, County Administra-
tor, explained to the public that most
counties fund their transportation de-
partments with the revenues received
from the gas tax that is collected from
each county by the State of Florida.
McQueen explained that the Road
Department currently grades over
460 miles of limerock roads every 10


to 14 days in the county. The gas tax
from the 9 stations in Gilchrist Coun-
ty raises an estimated $421,000 an-
nually. The present Gilchrist County
Road Department budget is over $1.8
million annually.
