Tropical Depression Barry leaves

,hioIILuch central Florida as it passed
north of Tampa Bay enroute up the
east coast of the United States. The
tropical depression was a bless-
ing sent as it dampened the parched
woodlands and reduced the level of
possible brush fire to the north cen-
tral Florida area.
Billy Cannon, assistant supervisor
of the Gilchrist Couinty Road Depart-
ment, told the Gilchrist County Com-
mission on Monday there were some
tree limbs down and some washouts
to Gilchrist County graded roads, but

little damage was reported during
this storm.
The tropical storm was reported to
make land fall north of Tampa Bay
but reduced to a tropical depression
with winds up to 35 miles per hour.
The tri-county area began to feel the
storm Friday evening as sprinkles
of rain blanketed the area. The rain
continued through the night from the

on Saturday. The winds continued to

Commission discusses cosmetic

problems involving painting, new

toilets at jail
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
once again discussed the issues in-
volving the Gilchrist County Jail on
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
told the board that he didn't appre-
ciate Sheriff Turner communicating
with TV 20 to put the jail oln the news
without the board being contacted.
Channel 20WCJB of Gainesville
contacted the Sheriff's office involv-
ing the growth and overcrowding of
jails in north central Florida. The Ala-
chua County Jail was also featured in
a segment of a previous broadcast.
Commissioner Thomas told the
board that he took a tour of the jail on
Monday, June 4 to see just how bad
conditions were at the county-owned
correctional facility.
"What I saw at the jail were mostly
cosmetic problems involving paint-
ing in some cells and the need for
new stainless steel toilets, in other
cells," Thomas explained.
The board has taken action to or-
der the toilets for installation and the
sheriff can have inmates paint the
walls that need to be improved, Com-
missioner Thomas added.
Commissioner Thomas asked Cap-
tain Cruse if the corrections staff
have a way to punish the inmates
that are responsible for writing on the
walls and causing other problems in
the cell area.
"You can't punish someone for
something you can't prove they did,"
Capt. Cruse explained to the board.
"Criminals have a lot more rights
than you and I have."
Captain Cruse further, explained
that the surveillance systems in the
cell blocks need to be updated. The
jail belongs to Gilchrist County and
the administration and the operation
Crami selected t

of the correctional facility is the re-
sponsibility of the sheriff.
The Gilchrist County Commission
discussed that they were in favor of
making the necessary improvements
to the older facility, even though they
are now negotiating with architects
and engineers to construct a new,
larger jail near the current facility.
The new facility is expected to be
completed within two years.
Sheriff Turner explained to the
board that the revenues needed to
make the necessary improvements
were identified in the Capital Im-
provements category of his 2007-
2008 budget that was submitted in
early June.
"A University of Florida study that
was conducted in 1999-2000 pointed
out that the electrical and plumb-
ing in the Gilchrist County Jail was
worn-out," Sheriff Turner explained
to the board.
While Sheriff Turner was in the
Monday meeting, he presented a doc-
umented authorization of the county
receiving a burn grant through the
Sheriff's office. The board took ac-
tion to approve the grant and have the
commission chairman sign it.
Sheriff Turner submitted his resig-
nation fiomr the Gilchrist County An-
imal Control committee. "I feel that
since animal control has now been
established and there is presently a
director and two animal control of-
ficers that the reasoning behind the
establishment of such a committee
during the initial stages have been
met. As per article II, section 14 of
the Code of Ordinances, this depart-
ment is now fully functional and an-
swerable as a county department to
you, the Board. I am always available
to give input if needed in the future,"
Sheriff Turner added.

Update on

local soldier

wounded in

Last week the Gilchrist County
Journal reported that Evan Mc-
Quiston, a 2002 graduate of Tren-
ton High School, was seriously
wounded while serving in Iraq
on May. 23. A family member has
provided an update on McQuis-
ton's condition.
Apparently, McQuiston was
driving a Humvee while perform-
ing routine night patrols around
Baghdad at 4 a.m. when a bomb
came at the vehicle from its right
Though he incurred damage to
the entire right side of his body,
including head trauma, McQuis-
ton was one of only two soldiers
who survived the accident. Two
other soldiers riding in the vehicle
were killed.
McQuiston underwent his first
operation in Iraq where he was
listed in stable condition. After be-
ing flown to Ramstein, Germany,
McQuiston underwent two addi-
tional surgeries.
Over the weekend McQuiston
was moved to Walter Reed Hospi-
tal in Washington D.C. where he
underwent two more operations.
Shortly after his arrival, McQuis-
ton was joined by his mother Mary
Britten and her husband, Henry.
McQuiston will need additional
reconstructive and plastic sur-
geries in the future, according to
family members. Once he is dis-
charged from Walter Reed, fam-
ily members believe Evan will be
moved to a VA hospital in Tampa
or Gainesville.
After serving four years in the
Army, Evan re-enlisted for an ad-
ditional four year term. At that
time he was assigned his first tour
of duty in Iraq.
The community is asked to pray
for Evan and his family during this
difficult time. Also, well wishes
may be mailed to Evan at: Pvt.

City of Trenton considers

upgrading garbage service

Upgrade would include 96-gallon roller containers

By John M Ayers
Trenton City Manager Jered Ot-
tenwess told four members of the
Trenton City Counsel Monday eve-
ning that waste collections contractor
Waste Pro is willing to cooperate with
the City of Trenton to provide 96-gal-
lon containers in the municipality for
$1.50 a month rental charge to the
City of Trenton. "I feel that many
issues involving garbage collection
would be corrected if the 96-gallon
containers were put in place," Otten-
wess told the board.
The City Manager told the board
that Waste Pro had verbally agreed
they would not request a contract
modification to put this improvement
into service. The City of Trenton's
existing refuse collection contract
runs through September 2009.
James Phelt, a resident on Rowland
Boulevard in northeast Trenton asked
the board what would the city do with
the old metal cans that would be left
on the right of way as an unsightful
Vice Mayor Glen Thigpen was the
mayor in this meeting in the absence
of Pete Randolph. Thigpen was con-
cerned about the additional cost of
more than 1 96-gallon container per



household resident.
"Residential household garbage
is supposed to be, unlimited to each
residential customer," attorney David
M. Lang told the board.
Mayor Thigpen asked the board
members what course of action they
wanted the ,City Manager to take,?
The board agreed to have the City
Manager continue negotiations with
Bob Wilks of Waste Pro to get more
information involving additional cost
after 1 container and what the rental
price would be to the residential cus-'
tomer.per month.
The City Manager explained that
he would provide additional informa-

The sky scattered with cloudy fi-
nancial question marks still looms
over Florida's 67 counties and mu-
nicipalities as the elected representa-
tives await the outcome of the special
session to discuss tax reform that the
Florida Legislature is about to begin.
As of the beginning of June of
this year the constitutional officers
in Gilchrist County were asked to
submit their proposed budgets for
the 2007-2008 fiscal year. These pro-
posed budgets have not been identi-
fied and discussed in public meeting
yet, but significant increases in sev-
eral categories are anticipated.
On Monday afternoon the County
Commission discussed several is-
sues with the Sheriff's representative
in the meeting. Captain Cruse told

the board that the Sheriff's Office
Corrections Division is involved in
regards to the operation of the jail.
He also agreed with some individual
board members that communication
between the Gilchrist County Com-
mission and the Sheriff's Office
needs to be improved.
There is less than four months re-
maining in the 2006-07 budget year.
The board will soon know what to ex-
pect involving revenues coming from
the State of Florida after the Legisla-
ture completes their Special Session.
The County officials will then be
able to identify the funds they have
to work with for the upcoming 2007-
08 budgets and once again begin the
budget workshops for the 2007-2008
fiscal year.

Wilma Mattucci and Red Underhill shown as Mr. Underhill is pre-
senting a collection of books to the Gilchrist County Library in Tren-

Red Underhill of Jacksonville spent
several hours in Trenton on Thurs-
day, May 31. The purpose for his
visit was to donate several books to
the Gilchrist County Public Library.
Wilma Mattucci, the library man-
ager said, "We are very pleased to
receive these interesting books." The
books cover several topics that are
important to Mr. Underhill including
a couple of books on the Civil War.
One of the books contained infor-
mation on his ancestor and another
had a lot of information on Mr. John
Hance Osteen who lived in Gilchrist'
County and was the youngest vet-
erar of the Ci\ il War. Another book
was a cookbook t ah recipes froin
Western movie stars from years past.
"Flyboys"by James Bradley which
features the pilots from WWII and
"Master Coaches" by Grant Teaff

were also in the collection which was
donated by Underhill. He said that
any young person who is interested
in sports should read "Master Coach-
es" because it is filled with tips from
famous coaches. He went on to say,
"This is just a wonderful book for
any athlete, it's really a must read."
Although Underhill grew up in
Gainesville he had strong ties to
Gilchrist County and Bell. He vis-
ited his grandparents for many
years near Bell. Underhill's ances-
tors, the Grimes family, settled
in 'this area in the middle 1800s.
He also donated the same collec-
tion of books to several libraries' in
Sins area including the Bell Library.
The' library in Trenton is open
Monday from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.,
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from
9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Wednesday
and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This past week saw the S&P 500
index reach its first record close in
more than seven years as Wall Street
did an excellent job of convincing
itself that the Federal Reserve
just might cut interest rates in the
second half of 2007. The Dow Jones
industrial average also closed at a
new high, although for the Dow that
is becoming old hat.
Driving the markets were the
minutes from the Fed's May 9 meeting
in which the Fed indicated that
inflation is "uncomfortably high," a
stance that would appear to mean that
it is unlikely that the Fed would act to
cut interest rates any time soon. Yet,
in its eternal wisdom, and with a little
extrapolation, the Street deduced
that because the Fed indicated that
the, drag on the economy from the
housing slump might be more severe
than first thought, that therefore there
is a good possibility the Fed has not
ruled out lowering rates later this
year. Sing Hallelujah.
Although the euphoria may only
be temporary, there is a saying on
Wall Street that you do not fight the
tape. If the market wants to try for the
stratosphere, so be it. Go along for
the ride, you might enjoy it as long
as you remember Newton's first law
of gravity.
For a more down to earth
investment stance you might want to
consider taking a look at Kellogg, a
company whose earnings increased 6
percent to $2.51 per share; a number
that was just a bit shy of my $2.56 per
share projection.
However, if you add back the one-
time charge of 11 cents per share
resulting from the expensing of stock
options, then earnings were $2.62

I Am An Atheist
(Kent Heaton)

What an embolden statement for man to make that he
is a doubter, a nonbeliever an atheist. He declares that
there is no God yet proudly announces that he is his own
god. His arrogant wisdom elevates his own thoughts to
supremacy with need of no other guide for life. If there is
any achievement it is by his hand and knowledge.
Standing alone in a world of creation, the atheist is a god
without measure. He boasts of his mighty
accomplishments and his almighty power. The work of
his hand has taken him to the far reaches of space, the
depths of the oceans, the infinitesimal complexities of the
DNA structure of humanity and the grandeur of wisdom
that excels the ancients before him. The atheist is god
alone. He is powerful. He is mighty. He is as big as an
The wise man told the sluggard to "go to the ant ...
observe her ways and be wise" (Proverbs 6:6). It would
be well for the atheist to observe the ways of the ant and.:
be wise. The ant is a powerful creature in his own world.
More ants live on earth than any other insect. He can
carry weights many, times his own size. They live in
colonies of hundreds and even thousands. Watching the
ants work is an amazing thing. But the ant is a very small
animal in the world. The Ponerine ants found in the
tropics boast the largest size of ants they may be more
than one inch long.
Imagine walking down the sidewalk and a Ponerine
ant shouts loudly that he is the greatest creature in the
world and all that exist and will exists is by his hand. He
proudly boasts his accomplishments, his wisdom, his
mighty power, and his intellectual veracity excelling all
other creatures in the world how foolish. My 10 V2 shoe
would easily crush such boasting and arrogance. What is

an ant to man? The same thing an atheist thinks he is to
Jehovah God Almighty.
"The fool has said in his heart, 'There is io God'"
(Psalm 14:1; 53:1). A fool is someone who is mindless,
stupid, ignorant and unwise. An ant that would so boast
against a man is without mind, unintelligent, uninformed
and without wisdom. Yet men boast they are their own
gods. Paul compared the evidence of Jehovah God with
the wisdom of men in Romans 1:20-22: "For since the,
creation of the world His invisible attributes, His
eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly
seen, being understood through what has been made,
so that they are without excuse. For even though they,
knew God, they did not honor Him as God or give
thanks, but they became futile in their speculations,
and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing to be
wise, they became fools."
The atheist lives as a man alone on an island. He has
no hope, no future, no wisdom, no peace and no guide.
The believer in Jehovah God has hope, a future, wisdom
that excels the ancients, peace that passes understanding
and a guide that will never fail. Life is a desolation and
death a useless end for the atheist. The children of God
live in security and death is only a peaceful bridge that
joins them with their Father. The atheist rises no higher
than an animal because he believes that is all he is. The
Christian ascends to the lofty heights of grace in the
knowledge that he is made in the image of his Creator
(Genesis 1:27).
The atheist is an ant that man would crush. The love
of God sent His only begotten Son to die for all men -
not to crush them but to save them (John 3:16).

Cash 3 Drawing:


By Cindy Jo Ayers

June is wedding month and I know
there are a few nervous mothers out
there who are beginning to stress
just a little as the big day draws near.
Bless your heart, just remember this
trying time will surely pass soon
and you will have the memories of
a beautiful event to cherish for the
years to come.
Among the many things that can
make a wedding 'special are home-
made mints. The good thing about
mints is they can be made a week in
advance and stored in a plastic air
tight container in the refrigerator.
Molds for these mints can be pur-
chased at stores which stock cake:
decorating supplies or a cooking
store such as Kitchen & Spice which
is located at 4136 NW 16th Blvd. in
Gainesville. They also stock many
different -flavorings including oil of
peppermint. I've used mint flavor-
ing in place of the oil but it doesn't
have the flavor of the oil. I use Dixie
Crystal 10X Confectioners Powered
Sugar to make these mints.
When making mints I use heart
shaped stiff plastic molds which have
been sprinkled with granulated sugar.
Press a round ball of the mint dough
into the molds and whack the mold'
on the counter top and the mints will
fall out. Next place them on a sheet
of wax paper and seal air tight and
refrigerate. You can stack several lay-
ers at a time in one container.
Not only are these mints good for
weddings but also at anniversaries,
showers and teas.
They may be tinted the theme color

Note if it's an outside wedding in

be a good choice because they will

per share. Backing up the earnings
number was a 7 percent increase in
sales to $10.9 billion. -
Kellogg's gross margin for all of
2006 was 44.2 percent, 70 basis points
lower than in 2005. A nonetheless
reasonable result when you consider
that incremental increases in fuel,
energy, commodity, and benefit costs
adversely impacted the company's
gross margin by total of 150 basis
Operating profit for the full year
was $1.8 billion, a one percent
increase over 2005. Free cash flow,
defined as cash from operating
activities less capital expenditures,
was $957 million, while debt net of
cash declined slightly.
Kellogg recently raised its forward
looking guidance to between $2.70
and $2.74 per share with a 4 percent
increase in sales after reporting better
results for the first quarter than it or
the Street had anticipated, earning 80
cents per share.
The company's excellent
performance is partially attributable
to a shift in emphasis from volume
growth to profit growth as it developed
healthier, higher-profit foods such as
Special K Red Berries.
Kellogg also had the honor of
being named as one of the world's
most ethical companies by Ethisphere
Magazine. The magazine's editors
select fewer than 100 companies from
a list of several thousand candidates.
When I wrote about Kellogg a
year ago, the shares were trading at
$47, with a price-to-earnings (P/E)
ratio of 19.5. Today they trade at
about $54 per share for capital gain
of 15 percent, while the P/E ratio has
increased to 20.5. So can we look
forward to a similar gain, in share
price this year?
The intrinsic value of Kellogg's
shares using a discounted earnings
approach yields a value of $59,
assuming an earnings growth rate of
9.74 percent and a discount rate of
11 percent, the average return on the
S&P 500 index. Using a discounted
free cash flow to the firm model,
with the same earnings growth rate,
provides an intrinsic value of $70 per
My earnings estimate for Kellogg
for 2007 is $2.78 per share with a
12-month target price on the shares
of $60, yielding an annualized capital
gain of 11 percent. In addition,

P. O. Box 559

POST 149
P. O. Box 1

This writing is being done in absentia. I am presently in Chicago on family business
and have missed the American Legion 4th District meeting in Crystal River. I am
looking forward to getting some news from our post delegation from this meeting. If all
went as planned, Jim Ramos of Post 149 should have been elected as the new District
Commander. Our local postsin the tri-county area know him very well and look forward
to an even better year in 2008-under his leadership.
While being away I have had some time to reflect on some things that set the
American Legion apart from other service organizations. While I support a number of
other veterans groups I have found that the American Legion truly supports the ideals of
taking care of our own. Whether working with our disabled veterans, lobbying for our
active duty and reserve forces, promoting and supporting education programs for our
youth or representing our veterans in the disability claims process, the American Legion
is always in the forefront to make things better for those who have served in uniform. I
am sure that these are just a few of the reasons that the American Legion has become the
largest veterans' organization in the world.
That being said, I still must remind our veterans eligible for membership that they are
needed to play important roles in our local posts. There is an old adage that we should
remember; strength in numbers. What makes us strong is not just paying our dues but
active participation in our programs. Many times when I hear this topic come up I have
heard' comments that suggest that many other organizations have the same problems
with obtaining active membership as we do. While that may very well be true, I suggest
that possibly we may have gotten a little lax about our regular participation. Here's
something to think about; recently Post 91 mailed out letters to the membership asking
for support in our recent election process. We received a response of less than 20% of
these mail outs. What we also learned was that nearly 192 of our members live right
here in our tri-county area and yet' we regularly only get about 12 members to our
meetings. Not only does this suggest the obvious attendance problem but it also suggests
that many who are able to attend and participate seem to either have forgotten the
purpose of this great organization o( just have more important things to do than support
otir legion programs. While this may seem a little harsh, we can't deny the facts. Post 91
has elected new leadership for the upcoming year and they will need our support. So,
let's put on our legion uniforms and start making it a priority to support this organization
that does so much for us. It simply will not work without you. For every one who
attends and helps in one of our programs, it helps lighten the burden of those who are
presently struggling to do these programs. A shared task means that the workload per
person becomes lighter exponentially by the number sharing it. So, for example, a
program to produce an event such as a scholarship program that is currently being done
by one person can be shared by two, three or more persons. Not only does the workload
per person get lighter, the end product can be achieved with greater results. A more
familiar term to us is TEAMWORK.
So, let me invite you to come out to our meetings and help a fellow legionnaire in
supporting one of our legion programs this year. We can have a good time doing it and
accomplish a very important function in support of our posts.
Please keep our troops and their families in your prayers.
Post 91 meets the third Thursday of the month at 7 pm in Trenton.
Post 149 meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7 pm in Newberry.

Loretta Lyell, a 2007 new member to Springhouse Quilters, is
shown getting her beginner sampler quilt ready for hand quilting.

The annual summer 4-H sum-
mer camp got off to a good start on
Monday, June 4, 2007. Elaine Fai-
son, who recently retired from the
County Extension Office and previ-
ously worked with the 4-H program,
will be in chargetof the 4-H sewing-
quilting camp. The first session, with
8 young, excited, prospective quilters
began their week of learning to quilt
by choosing fabric and getting reac-
quainted with their sewing machines.
Ms. Elaine will be helping them get
their first large quilt started. The
first group of 4-H members were in-
vited to this camp as advanced sew-
ing-quilters having attended 2 or
more years of 4-H Sewing Camp.
The quilts they are planning to make
this year will be more difficult than
the quilting projects they learned in
previous years. Two other weeks of
4-H camp will follow and will be for

beginners and second year members.
There is a lot of work that goes
into making a quilt. The final stage,
quilting either by hand or machine,
requires some preparation after the
top is assembled. The quilt top must
be "sandwiched" together with a
back and the batting and then bast-
ed to hold the three pieces together
until the quilting is completed. Lo-
retta Lyell has completed her quilt
top and has now "sandwiched" her
quilt. She will be quilting by hand.'
There will be many stitches that
Loretta will complete before she
can show off her completed quilt.
Springhouse Quilters will be meet-
ing again on June 12, 2007 at 9:30
a.m., at the Springhouse Quilter's
building on Highway 26, west of Tren-
ton. For information about Spring-
house Quilters, contact Jan Litzinger,
463-3971, or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

This Dresdeu Plate is one of the many quilts that Pat Os-
owiecki makes. Her next one is going, to the state fair. These
quilts are made from many small scraps and are so colorful.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
May 31st at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. It was a busy day again.
Pat is helping new members to learn
to quilt. She is a great teacher and
has lots of know-how. B.J. and her
husband are back from their vacation
which they took on their motorcycle;
they went all the way to Colorado and
then decided to come home. They
got to see so much of our beautiful
Lois Fink will be quilting the king-
size Log Cabin at home. It turned
out to be so colorful using aquas and
pinks and using a pattern that really
showed up the colors.

Cleo Pravatt was back after falling
and breaking her wrist. She is so
much help no matter what there is to
do. She and Claude are taking care of
their two-year-old granddaughter and
what is a great time they have with
her. She is a smart little girl and at
the age you have to be careful what
you say.
Nick Turner and six boys were out
Tuesday and did a great job of doing
so much. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was so good. Baked chicken,
squash, potato fritters, cantaloupe, all
kinds of breads, biscuits, cake and so
much more. 13 members, 8 visitors.

The game was scheduled to begin at
8 p.m. but started late due to a rain
Suwannee Valley League won the
coin toss and was hoThe team. Dar-
ren Skawienski started on the mound
for Suwannee Valley League. "Big
D" shut down the first three batters,
striking out two. In the bottom of the
inning, Madison started a 12-year-
old pitcfier that stood six feet and
threw gas. He was just wild enough
to walk the first three Suwannee Val-.
ley League hitters before Hunter Wil-
liams singled to score a run.
After a few wild pitches Suwannee,
Valley League ended the inning with
five runs.
In the second Skawienski gave up

and then saw a movie that after-
noon, later practicing before hitting

wannee Valley League lost the coin
toss and Woodville elected to be the
home team.
Suwannee Valley League started

with a pitch but both scored when
Skawienski hit a lazy fly ball to center
field with 2 outs that was mishandled.

Suwannee Valley League getting the
first two batters out before giving up
an 0-2 home run on a change up. Af-
ter one. inning the score was 2-1.
In the second Ozie Parrish got on
and was moved over by a Smith sin-
gle. Hunter Parrish got on followed
by a Bryant single that scored two.
In the bottom of the second Crown
relieved Skawienski and retired the

up a run. At the end of two Suwan-
nee Valley League led 5-1.

four hitters reached base. After three
runs had scored Crown was replaced
by Smith who faced three batters and
got two outs. At the end of three Su-
wannee Valley League led 6-4.
In the fourth Hunter Parrish singled,
Bryant reached by error and Williams
got an RBI on a ground out to score
Parrish. Jonathan Rowe then scored
Bryant by hitting a monster blast to
center-field, his 10th of the year, off a
1-2 fastball. Kendall Walters singled
later in the inning but was not able to
score. Woodville tried to fight back
in the fourth but Smith kept them off
balance with overhand curves and
sneaky fastballs.
Suwannee Valley League got three
more runs in the top of the fifth with
Smith, Hunter Parrish and Bryant
getting three singles in a row, with
Bryant scoring Smith. Skawienski
and Rowe scored Parrish and Bryant
to make the score 12-4. Crown re-
turned to the mound in the bottom of
the fifth to shut Woodville down. The
game was called for time. Suwannee
Valley League advanced to play the
winner of the Tallahassee Panthers
and Tallahassee Winthrop.
At 4 p.m. Suwannee Valley League
faced the Tallahassee Panthers. Su-
wannee Valley League won the coin
toss and took the field first. Skawien-
ski pitched the first inning and gave
up one run on two hits. Suwannee

early with Smith walking and Hunter

into trouble on the mound, gave up a
run and was relieved by Smith. Smith
got Suwannee Valley League out of
the jam but the score was now tied
2-2. In the bottom of the second the
Panthers got three Suwannee Valley
League batters out to end the inning.
Suwannee Valley League brought
Crown in to start the third. Crown
faced five batters but managed to
keep the Panthers from scoring. In
the bottom of the third Suwannee
Valley League got the bats crank-
ing, knocking the Panthers starting
pitcher off the mound. Smith sin-
gled, Hunter Parrish walked, Bryant,
singled, Williams had a 2 RBI single,
and Rowe walked and later scored.
The Panthers were forced to bring in
their third baseman, a 6'2" 12 year
old that threw hard.
Crown pitched the fourth and fifth
innings, keeping the Panthers at bay.
Suwannee Valley League got a big
boost in the fourth inning when Bry-
ant hit a high shot. over the center

Hospitalist and

scratched out a final run in the fifth
after Wiggins singled, moved over
on Smith and Hunter Parrish hits,
and scored on a Bryant RBI fielder's
choice. Skawienski finished out the
pitching for Suwannee Valley League
by striking out two of the final three
Panther hitters.
Suwannee Valley League won 9-
2 and advanced to play Wakulla for
the winner's bracket championship.
Wakulla had earlier beat Perry 8-2
to advance to meet Suwannee Valley
Suwannee Valley League squared
off with Wakulla Sunday night with
the game starting at 7:30 p.m. Su-
wannee Valley League had already
played two games during the heat of
the day and the players were tired.
Wakulla brought a large crowd to the
game traveling only about 10 miles
to see their team play. The tone was
set for a great matchup. Suwannee
Valley League won the coin toss and
elected to be the home team again.
Suwannee Valley League started
Crown. Crown got the first three bat-
ters out. Suwannee Valley League
led off the bottom of the inning with
a bunt single and Hunter Parrish fol-
lowed with a bunt that rode the foul
line for another single. Bryant hit
a single thru the right side to score
Smith making the score 1-0. Suwan-
nee Valley League failed to capitalize,
on their early fortunes and were not
able to score any more runs. Since
Crown had pitched three innings in
the previous game he would only be
allowed three in this game.
Suwannee Valley League decided
to save Crown for later in the game
and brought Smith in to pitch the
second. After a single to center and
a walk, Wakulla bunted to try to ad-
vance the runners to second and third.
Smith covered the bunt, fired to third
beating the runner, but the call was
made in favor of Wakulla. After issu-
ing a walk to tie the game, Smith was
relieved by Skawienski. Skawienski
got Suwannee Valley League out of
the jam with the score tied 1-1.
Suwannee Valley. League was
blanked in the second, third, fourth,
fifth and sixth innings, getting only
one other hit by Crown, a .double in
the bottom of the sixth. Walker, the
starting pitcher for Wakulla, pitched
all 6 innings, striking out. 11 Suwan-
,nee Valley League hitters while only
walking four. Walker showed a com-
mand of the strike zone throughout
the night. Crown pitched the third
and fourth innings, giving up a run
on a fielder's choice while getting
one strikeout. Hunter Williams fin-
ished the pitching duties for Suwan-
nee Valley League, pitching the fifth
and sixth innings. Williams struck
out four but gave up two runs on a
walk, 2 hits, and a wild pitch. The
game was-close all the way to the fin-
ish but Wakulla defeated Suwannee
Valley League 4-1.
Due to travel problems Suwannee
Valley League decided not to return
to play on Monday night for sec-
ond place. The third place trophy
was awarded to Suwannee Valley
This week Suwannee Valley League
will play some tune up games with
Chiefland on Saturday at Suwannee
Valley League's home field, McAr-
thur Park. This will be one of the last
times Suwannee Valley League will

The Levy County Genealogy and
History Society will meet on Sunday,
June 10, 2007 at 2 p.m. at the Levy
County Quilt Museum.
Bill Roberson, Assistant Manager
at Manatee Springs Park, will be the
guest speaker. He will talk about the
prehistoric lndians that made their
home there followed by the Creek
Indians, who were later called Semi-
noles. He will also discuss one of the

The above picture was taken on Memorial Day where a group of our
veterans, auxiliary and S.A.L. members gathered for a Flag Ceremony at
the Post Flag. Post Commander, Paul Sommer, conducted the ceremony
by speaking of those veterans who gave their lives so we may continue
to live in a free country. Commander Sommer also read off the numbers
of Americans who have given their lives in the various wars in which we
have been involved since becoming a great nation. He thanked all veter-
ans for their outstanding sacrifice and contribution to the freedom of this
country. Jerry Prater, Post Chaplain, gave a prayer for those lost and for
our veterans and their families in this trying time. John Howell ended the
ceremony by playing taps. After the ceremony, a nice luncheon was served
by the ladies. We thank "Mitch" Priest for cooking the meat and the ladies
for their fine contribution of sides!

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
City of Fanning Springs
17651 NW 90th Court
Fanning Springs, FL 32693
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to
provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We
are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Fanning Springs well draws water from the Floridan Aquifer. The two active wells in use are located by the Kik-A-Ha Subdivision. The water is
chlorinated to ensure disinfection.

In 2004, Department of Environmental Protection has performed a Source Water Assessment on our system and a search of the data sources indicated no potential sources of contamination near our wells.
The assessment results are available on FDEP Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact, Mr. Doyle Frierson at 352-542-4024. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water
utility. If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:00 P.M. at City Hall.

The City of Fanning Springs routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based
on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance
with the laws, rules, and regulations.

In the table below you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms, we've provided the following definitions:

Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL:. The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. 'MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligram per liter (mg/1): One part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (lpg/1): One part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of
microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is ho known or expected risk of health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the
use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.

Chris and Fran Hardee,.Isaac Hardee and Don Barrett.

Isaac Hardee, a 2007 graduate
of Chiefland High School has been
awarded $1000 scholarship by White
Ford Mercury and Ford Motor Com-
Isaac's parents are Chris and Fran
Hardee of Chiefland. "Isaac is excit-
ed for the opportunity to do what he's
always dreamed of, pursue a college
degree and play baseball" said Mrs.
"Work hard in class, get done what
I could during school hours and bal-
ance my time" were keys to his aca-
demic standing said Isaac. His study
skills and determination has awarded
him the recognition of co-salutato-
rian with a GPA of 3.98 and Isaac
has received an academic scholarship
to Berry College in Rome, Georgia.
His plans include majoring in Pre-
Vet and Veterinary Sciences. "I'm
looking forward to playing baseball
and seeing a new area" stated Isaac.
In the meantime, his responsibilities
to the Chiefland Sr. FFA do not end
with graduation. There still remains
a State Convention where Isaac will
receive a State Degree gold pin.
Isaac said his most memorable ex-
periences in, FFA, aside from "learn-
ing patience because animals are
stubborn, is interacting with people
of various backgrounds from all over
the state." Isaac has held several FFA
offices and cites learning those lead-
ership skills to be of value, regardless
of career choice.
In looking back over his years with
FFA, "it wasn't always about winning
but doing your best, learning while
dofig and the experiences you take'

with you" stated Mr. Hardee. This,
speaks to the FFA mission to make
a positive difference in the lives of
students by developing their poten-
tial for premier leadership, personal
growth and career success through
agricultural education.
"The national FFA organization
continues to support the growth and
education of America's future lead-
ers. The Built Ford Tough Trucks
scholarship program is one aspect of
the million dollar commitment to the
National FFA Foundation by Ford
Trucks" stated Don Barrett of White'
Ford Mercury in Chiefland.
Ford has supported the National
FFA Foundation since the first F-Se-
ries truck was introduced in 1948 and
has sponsored the Built Ford Tough'
collegiate scholarship program since
1997. Ford knows the value of hard-
work and believes that hard work
should be rewarded.
"I can appreciate the lessons in
hard work, responsibility, communi-,
cation, patience and the dedication of
caring for an FFA project from begin-
ning to end.
The Built Ford Tough Trucks/FFA
Scholarship Program is designed to,
recognize FFA ,member's talents and
accomplishments while encouraging
future academic achievement. Isaac,
Hardee represents all of that" Bar-,
rett said "and White Ford Mercury is'
proud to support the Tri-County FFA-
Chapters over the past 53' years."

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban storm water runoff, industrial or domestic waste water discharges, oil and gas production,
mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban
stormwater runoff, and septic systems...
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by, calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy,
persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at The City of Fanning Springs would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the
quality of your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call Doyle Frierson at 352-463-2855.

Florida Property Insurance Crisis

Three Questions

1. Why are insurance companies non-renewing your
homeowners policies?
1992 2006: Florida home insurers paid an estimated $10.4 billion
more in claims than they received in premium.
Florida remains a money-losing proposition for most home insurers.

2. If my insurance company cannot pay for my
hurricane loss, will I be paid?
The Florida Insurance Guaranty Association (FIGA) pays covered claims
up to a maximum amount of $300,000; anld for homeowners claims FIGA will
pay an additional $200,000 for damage relating to structure and contents.

3. Is there a solution to the Florida property crisis?
Hawaii found the solution after Hurricane Iniki struck in 1992. Most
insurers were non-renewing business and were not writing new business.
The solution is a form of the Hawaii Hurricane Relief Fund, which only
wrote coverage for hurricanes as a separate policy.
All other coverages can be written by the industry, which will vigorously
compete for the business.

FLORIDA CANNOT AFFORD TO WAIT the time to act is now.

Craig selected to Team USA

Continued from page 1
the third staged by the International
Federation of American Football
(IFAF). Team USA, coached by John
Mackovic, will face Germany and
Korea in pool play. The other pool
will consist of host and two-time de-
fending champion Japan along with
Sweden and France.
Craig, a 2006 second-team All-Ivy
selection, earned Yale's Jim Keppel
Award as the team's offensive back
of the year despite few touches of the
football. However, he was instrumen-
tal in the Bulldogs' 8-2 campaign and
a.share of the Ivy League title.
"All of our efforts over the last
year have been directed towards this
announcement," USA Football Exec-
utive Director Scott Hallenbeck said.
"Filling out our roster is another im-
portant milestone for USA Football.
We now know the players who will
represent our country and our game

at the World Championship. All of us
at USA Football are looking forward
to seeing this team take the field for
the first time."
The 45 players selected- were
chosen from a pool of 2006 college
seniors and represent all levels of
college football. NCAA and NAIA
schools were asked by USA Football
to nominate up to two seniors during
the season. That list was pared down
by the Team USA coaching staff
through film evaluation.
"This team is a complete cross sec-
tion of U.S. football." said Mackov-
ic, a former NCAA and NFL coach.
"We're excited that we are able to
blend every level of college football
and put together a team of players
from schools of every size. We hope
to represent our country in the high-
est fashion and be great ambassadors
for football around the world."
Team USA will train at San Jose
State University from June 20-July 4
