Gilchrist County Commissioners vote unanimously to revoke sludge ordinance


Agriculture committee will
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action on Monday to revoke
Ordinance 07-11 which requires
property owners to purchase a one-
time permit from Gilchrist County to
have sludge spread on property that
does not belong to the owner of the
sludge.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
made a. motion to revoke Ordinance
07-11 and direct County Attorney
Tohn McPherson to reconstruct an


review animal sludge issue in upcoming meetings


ordinance that deals specifically with
non-animal sludge and bring it back
to the commission during their next
meeting.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
supported the action with a second.
The board approved this action
with a 5-0 vote. The board also called
for the 2002 Agriculture Committee
get involved to review the issue of
agriculture sludge and provide a rec-
ommendation to the commission as
soon as possible.


Agriculture committee representa-
tives are: Doug Crawford, Craig Wat-
son, Scott Tucker, Jim Jones, Artie
Powers, Earl Jones, Hugh Martin,
Larry Studstill, Tommy Jones, Don
Bennink, C.D. Moore, Edwin Doug-
las, Jim Floyd, Billy Smith, Jon Gray,
Ron St. John, David Sumerall, Kelly
Philman and Roy Wilson. Committee
members will be contacted and called
to meet in August.
Don Bennink, managing partner
of North Florida Holsteins, told the


board that when the dairy indus-
try came. to Gilchrist County in the
.1980s, the county and the farmers
were on the brink of bankruptcy.
Since that time Gilchrist County
has become the second largest milk-
producing county in Florida. He ex-
plained that North Florida Holsteins
pump $60 million annually into the
Gilchrist County economy.
"A lot of local businesses and
farmers depend on the dairy indus-
try' annually," Bennink added. "We


have been 'the largest taxpayer in the
county and we can't understand why
this ordinance was passed in secrecy
without us being contacted."
Billy Smith told the board that he
has lived in Gilchrist County since
1968. Smith explained that he thinks
the ordinance was passed in haste,
but feels that something has to be
done involving the waste.
"I don't think it is right for the resi-
dents to have to smell the liquid ma-
nure and deal with the flies when it is


spread on land next to our homes,"
Smith added.
Jim Floyd told the board that he
understands the problem Nonrh Flor-
ida Holsteins has in dealing with the
Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection involving liquid waste.
"There are certain things that you
have to do to communicate with
neighbors and adjoining land owners
when dealing with the public," Floyd,

Flood waters close NE 10th Street in

Trenton on Ftiday


By John MI. Avers
The owners of the Gilchi it Grill
came before.the Trenton Cir\ Com-
mission Monday e ending to ask for
help in repairing the entrance of NE
10th Street after heavy rain water
co ered the road and flooded their
restaurant on Friday.
Si -inches of rain was recorded in
Trenton orn Friday.
Paul Redd told the board ihat v..hen
he looked out his office window on
Friday as the rain began to fall, NE
10th. Street connecting into SR 26
was covered irn water. Redd said that
he called City Hall to request the City
close the street due to flooding.
"If the road is not passable, it is not
usable," Redd said., '
The entrance to the Gilchrist Grill


parking lot to the west and the drive-
\\a. s entering several businesses to
the east were all flooded.
"The worst embarrassing thing
that I have seen in my four years on
the commission is the flooding of
NE 10th Street on Friday," Commis-
sioner Arlene Wilks told her fellow
commissioners Monday night. "The
owners of the Gilchrist Grill can't get
customers into their restaurant be-
cause the road is flooded."
Commissioner Glen Thigpen said,
"It doesn't make logical sense to re-
pair the road and not take care of the
storm water retention problem at this
location.".

Personality of the Month


By Geneva Cornwell
One of the basic reasons why
the Character Council of Gilchrist
County exists is so that all citizens
can both learn and teach different
qualities which are highlighted each
month in these articles. During the
school year the articles focus on
character "traits," whereas, during
the summer months the articles point
to those with "leadership" qualities.
This month the Character Council's
concentration will be on that of "Me-
diator."'
In the times in which we live,
there's so much dissention and oppo-
sition. Many kinds of disagreements
focus on so-called "personal rights"
and show forth a lack of good char-
acter, which can destroy the integrity

of business, and the operations of
government, and non-profit organi-
zations, as well. Because of so many
contrary opinions, our society has
come to a point where most agencies,
businesses and organizations have
mediators. A mediator is one that in-
terposes between parties at variance
for the purpose of reconciling them.
A far better definition of mediator is
one who is deeply loyal and compas-
sionate, and analyzes the benefits and
problems toward a given direction.
The featured personality for the
month of July is Mr. Jim Ramos. Mr.
Ramos is a "transplant" from Puerto
Rico and the father of three grown
children. He came by way of a very
pursuasive aunt and purchased prop-
erty in Gilchrist County in 1992. Af-
ter retiring from,a twenty-year stint
in the U.S. Army, he settled here in
1994. Soon after his retirement, Mr.
Ramos worked with the "Tacacharle"
Home in Gainesville. (It is a group

ness due to flooding," Redd said.
The lowest portion of the street was
covered with up to 3 feet of water at
one point on'Friday.
"It is not our street, but it is affect-
ing our business," Redd added.
Glenda Owen, an owner of the Gil-
christ Grill, explained that oh Friday
drivers drove through their property
to get to the intersection of SR 26
while the street was closed.
"It is getting very dangerous when
kids come sliding through here and
customers are trying to park and en-
ter the restaurant," Owen said. "The
closing of the road and a portion of
our parking lot is having a negative
effect on our business. We would
appreciate some assistance from the
City of Trenton to repair this prob-
lem."
Trenton resident Paul Norris ex-,
plained that his backyard was flood-
ed on Friday when flooding rain was
unable to flow through a pipe in his
front yard.
"The pipe seems to be stopped up
and this puts the flooding rain water
in my yard." Norris explained. "I
would appreciate some assistance in.
correcting this problem."
The city commission took no ac-
tion on either complaint.

Spring Ridge Vol. Fire Department serves up pancakes


Saturday morning breakfast raises $2,519 for Children's Miracle Network
By Carrie A. Mizell
Whether boasting blueberries and
nuts or just served plain with sticky ,.
syrup, pancakes were the savory se-
lection of choice Saturday morning .
at the Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire
Department's community breakfast.
Held the first Saturday of each '
month, the pancake breakfast has
served as a primary fundraiser for
the Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire De- ,..
apartment since 1994, according to
Fire Chief Don Alexander. The pan- j' .
cake breakfast, which also features '
sausage, eggs, coffee and juice, has
flourished over the years. In 1997 the
firefighters decided to move the year-
ly event to a monthly staple in the
Spring Ridge community; a decision ,
that pleased many hungry diners who ..
have been known to travel from as far -
as Jacksonville, Ocala and Lake City
to eat pancakes. Al
Ron Mills, Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Management Chief, estimated
over 300 people attended Saturday -.I E

Soon it will be time for our Gil-
christ county schools to open their
doors for the 2007-2008 school year.
Eager students will return with excit-
ing stories about their summer ad-
ventures and activities. One particu-
lar group, however, has something...a
little different to share.
This Summer from May 15 to May
22, a group of Gilchrist County stu-
dents, parents and teachers embarked
on an exciting adventure that would
take them many miles away to the
country of Costa Rica.
The trip was Jed by Chuck Vogel
and Joyce Philman both teachers at
Trenton Elementary School..
Mr. Vogel has been teaching Sci-
ence with TES for 5 years offering
students from kindergarten through
the 5th grade hands-on opportunities
to explore and study the scientific
concepts that make up their world.
Joyce Philman, who has been teach-
ing Resource classes at TES for 5
years previously taught Elementary
Science classes at PAIS (Pan Ameri-
can International School) in Para-
guay, South America and has traveled
extensively in many countries
For the first leg of their great ad-
venture the Gilchrist County Explor-
ers stayed at the Selva Verde Lodge
located in northeastern Costa Rica.
The lodge is owned by the Holbrook
Family, who also own Holbrook
Travel of Gainesville, Florida. The
eco-educational lodge was created
especially for student / teacher learn-
ing groups in 1985. Conservation of
the rainforest is the main theme of
their establishment which contains a
500 acre reserve. Daily activities of-
fer student groups the chance to learn
about and experience the rainforest
first hand. It is their hope more indi-
viduals will work towards the protec-
tion of rainforests, considered to be
one of Earth's greatest resources.
During their stay at Selva Verde the
group was able to experience educa-
tional day and night rainforest hikes
at Selva Verde as well as in surround-
ing rainforest areas. They listened to
presentations by experienced guides

rainforest on a zip line.

and teachers about the forest and the
creatures that live there. One rainfor-
est preserve, the nearby La Selva Bio-
logical Station is maintained by OTS
the Organization for Tropical Studies.
The travelers learned that researchers
from around.the world come here to
study the rainforest, its inhabitants
and the effects of weather and cli-
mate changes on the area. Here, 400
species of ants, 500 species of butter-
flies, 55 species of snakes, 49 species
of amphibians, 420 species of birds,
120 species of mammals, 330 species
of trees and 1,900 species of vascular
plants have been documented.
While staying. at the Selva Verde
Lodge, the adventurers were also able
*to explore a local river by boat where
they looked for wildlife and observed
a bit of the homes and river culture.
They, spent time in a nearby town and
even visited the local grocery store.
Other activities included a white
water rafting trip, zip lining and
horseback riding as well as a visit to
a serpentarium. They attended a lo-
cal art show, visited a ceramics shop
owned by Lidia Molinas who creates
unique and outstanding pottery pieces
using natural products and traditional
Costa- Rican methods. The group,
also visited a local school where
several of the students were able to
meet the pen pals they have been cor-
responding with throughout the last
school year. After the introductions,
the school surprised its visitors with a
lovely traditional dance presentation
b% the .tudents. Then everyone came
r-,gerler hoi .- round of local "foot-
ball" better known as "s, cei to our
Gilchrist County travelers.
The group spent the last leg of their
journey 2 hours north at the base of
Costa Rica's most famous volcano.
The Arenal Volcano is about 5,358
feet high and about 4,000 years old.
The travelers explored the old lava
beds and watched for the slight glow
of molten rock around the top. They

Chuck Vogel when asked about pos-
sibilities for the next year. We have
already started planning for the up-
coming 2008 summer trip, he stated.
Joyce Philman will be going into the
Amazon (which she has previously
traveled in and has knowledge of)
in early August. We have not yet de-
cided if we will be returning to Costa
Rica or going to Peru next summer
but meetings. will. be held in Sep-
tember to determine what Gilchrist
County students and parents are most
interested in. Wherever they go it
will surely be another life changing
learning opportunity.
Andrea Holbrook, of Holbrook

the planning and organization of the
trip stated ours is the only group in
the area that offers such opportunities
to their students. For more informa-

'In 2006, the Spring Ridge Volun-
teer Fire Department set out to raise
$1,000 for the Children's Miracle
Network and raised $2,000, accord-
ing to Alexander.
"We ask that people who can af-
ford to give a donation please do, but
for those who cannot afford to give
and just need to eat we understand,"
Alexander said.
With 12 active firefighters and
eight to nine associate members, the
Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment responds to between 150 and
160 calls each year, according to
Alexander. The chief explained that
several of those calls have come in
during pancake breakfasts. When the
alarm sounds the firefighters simply
pass their spatulas off to ladies from
the community who step in to con-
tinue serving the hungry masses.
In the future, Alexander said that
he would like to see a rescue unit sta-
tioned at Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire
Department. The chief would also
like to see more young people vol-
unteer with the department, but for
the time being he is perfectly content
serving mouth-watering pancakes
and engaging in pleasant conversa-
tions with neighbors on Saturday

Founding member of the

Education Foundation of

Gilchrist County honored


Gene Osteen is'pictured with his daughter, Frances LaSalle at a
surprise reception held in his honor on Friday.
No one shouted surprise, but that did not stop the look of disbelief
from crossing Gene Osteen's face last Friday as he walked into a surprise;
reception hosted in his honor by the Education Foundation of Gilchrist,
County.
It seems only fitting that Osteen, a longtime vice president of the organic'
zation, was named a director emeritus of the foundation on'Feb. 14, 2007.
The Valentine's Day honor sits well with Osteen. A former president of,
Farmers and Merchants Bank of Trenton, Osteen has a heart for Gilchrist
County students. In 1992, he worked tirelessly with Bellsouth, Trenton
Medical Center, Lake City Community College, Skill Health Organiza-
tion and several other businesses to secure money to start the Education
Foundation of Gilchrist County.
"Our original goal was to make enough money to give a scholarship'
to one student from Trenton and one student from Bell. We made more
money than we anticipated and were able to give out more than two schol-
arships," D.Ray Harmson. Jr. said.
Since the beginning, the Education Foundation of Gilchrist Coiuni has
grown by leaps and bounds, according to Harrison, due in large part to the
dedicated service of volunteers like Osteen.
"Gene has been a pillar of strength for the foundation over the years."
Harrison said.
As for retirement, Osteen said he will have surgery in the coming weeks
and then he would like to return to active work with the Education Foun-.
dation of Gilchrist County.
"If I can get rid of these sticks [crutches] then I'll be back," Osteen
said.
Once he is able to live more actively, Osteen plans to resume his seat
between Harrison and longtime Foundation member Roger Pittman at
board meetings and may resume his cooking duties at the annual Educa-
tion Foundation Beast Feast.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


Meet Your Neighbor


Gilchrist County has yielded at a
crossroad that has the future leading
down all connecting highways.
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion took action on Monday to do as
Don Bennink, managing partner of
North Florida Holstein dairy in Bell
requested of them. He demanded the
board revoke a sludge ordinance that
restricts the spreading of agricultural
manure without a permit on proper-
ties that are not owned by the dairy.
In this meeting the board also took
action to have an agriculture commit-
tee review the animal sludge waste
proposal to identify what can be done
to provide relief for property owners
that are agriculture supporters, but
are tired of the flies and the smell of
the liquid waste when it is spread on
grass pastures and left to leach into
the ground.
The agriculture community is a
tough group of people that have lived
with agriculture in Gilchrist County
for longer than I have been alive.
Their families before them were also
entrenched in agriculture and they
too loved to work the land.


On Monday afternoon the support
for agriculture split when people liv-
ing between Bell and Trenton told the
board they support agriculture, but
'want something done involving the
spreading of liquid animal manure on
pasture and left without any cultiva-
tion practice done to cover the liquid
and allow it to work into the grass
pasture.
The board's action to revoke the
sludge ordinance and send it to an
agriculture committee is the first step
to resolving this issue involving an
expanding dairy industry and resi-
dential development that is turning
grazing pastures into new homes.
I hope the dairy industry and the
agriculture based residents can come
up with recommendations to adopt
a fine line that will allow the opera-
tion and the existence of the two to
continue to move forward for the im-
provement of Gilchrist County.
This committee has their work cut
out for them. This will be a tough, is-
sue going into an election year. This
issue needs to be resolved as .soon as
possible.

A relentless search for easy profits
beyond the norm has investors, many
of whom are unsuited for the risks
involved, chasing after exotic new
investments in the energy markets as
they seek to tap into rising oil and en-
6ergy prices.
While investing in the energy sec-
-tor is an excellent strategy, never
?-,neglect the requirement for a stable
.history of' earnings and cash flow
,growth. Consider, for example, two
companies that were discussed here
,a year ago. Both companies are in
'the offshore oil drilling business and
'are currently chalking up profits at an

unprecedented' rate, not to mention
rapidly rising share prices.
Much of their success is attribut-
able to the expanding need to drill for
oil and gas offshore, with the result
that day rates for drilling platforms
are skyrocketing. Yet, as I said last
year, there is also a strong warning
label accompanying these two selec-
tions. Due to the nature of the busi-
ness, profits in offshore oil drilling
are volatile, and that volatility can
quickly spill over into a company's
share price. Therefore, do not allow
yourself to become blinded by either
their most recent earnings or their
share price performance.
Transocean recently reported that
its second-quarter earnings more than
doubled as a result of record vessel
day rates and improved drilling ef-
ficiency. The company earned $549
million or $1.84 per share, as com-
pared to $249 million, or 75 cents per
share a year ago.
Revenues increased to $1.43 bil-
lion, up 68 percent from $854 mil-
lion in the year-ago period. Trans-
ocean attributed the revenue growth
to higher average vessel day rates,

new contracts for six vessels. Rig uti-

88 percent in the first quarter,
In addition, Transocean is under-
taking an $18 billion purchase of
rival GlobalSantaFe. In an effort to
defuse any concerns the Street might
have with regard to the effect the re-
cent deterioration in the credit mar-
kets might have on the transaction,
Transocean has stated unequivocally
that it will have no difficulty in fi-
nancing the $18 billion deal. As part
of the fi nanc in', the comn0tbi ned com-
panies plan to borrow $15 billion to
pay out to shareholdersgas a special
dividend.
When I wrote about Trarisocean a
year ago, I had a price target for the
shares of $98 against a price back then
of $78. The shares recently traded at
$106 for a gain of 36 percent. The
current intrinsic value of the shares,
using a discounted earnings approach
with a discount rate of 15 percent and
an earnings growth rate of 20 percent
is $227. The more conservative free
cash flow to the firm approach yields
an intrinsic value of $140. My 2007
earnings estimate for Transocean is
$7.95 and I have a 12 month target
on the shares of $128.
I also delved into Noble a year ago.
Noble recently reported second quar-

Trenton High School Teacher Cadets

participate in training at FSU


Submitted
The ACE Teacher Cadets of Tren-
ton High School participated in a
Pre-Teacher In-Service training at
The Florida State University in Tal-
lahassee last week.
All of the participants went through
workshop type classes during the day.
Some of these classes included: In-
corporating games in learning, Best
practices for Great Teachers, Lesson
plan writing, Open ended question-
ing, and much more. There were
over 50 participants from Florida that
took part in this camp. Not only did
we learn a lot of great information
but we had a blast.
The evenings were set aside for fun
activities and making new friends.
The culminating activity was that the
students taught the lessons they had
worked on during the week. Megan
Robinson and Danielle White were
in the group. that was awarded "Best
Lesson Plan." Travis Adkins and Ja-
mie Slysofski were in the group that
received runner up for the "Best Les-
son Plan," which was Jamie's per-
sonal lesson.
The Teacher Cadets from T.H.S.
represented the best and the bright-
est from across Florida, not just
Gilchrist County! All of our Trenton
High School Cadets performed out-


standingly. They were very knowl-
edgeable and outgoing in the classes
and all showed amazing leadership
skills.
The following Cadets, along with
their Teacher Cadet Instructor, Char
Leasor, participated in this week-
long camp: Travis Adkins, Justin
Diggs, Megan Robinson, Tarah Vick,
Danielle White, and Jamie Slysofski (
who turned 17 while we were away).

Chamber of Commerce welcomes

the Heart Gallery of Mid-Florida


The Gilchrist County Chamber of
Commerce is very excited to host
the Heart Gallery of Mid-Florida
from August 8 through September 4,
2007.
What is a Heart Gallery? Pre-
sented by Children's Home Society
and the Professional Photographers,
of North Central Florida, it is an in-
credible photo exhibit of children in
foster care whose hearts' desire is to
be adopted by their forever family.
The goal is to raise overall awareness
of the foster care adoption program
and recruit prospective parents for
these children. "We are so excited
about the Heart Gallery," states Jen-
nifer Anchors, Executive Director
of Children's Home Society. "It a
tremendous opportunity to increase


awareness of the children that are
hoping to find their forever families.
Every time I look at their faces I am
moved by what they've been through
in their short lives and how much po-
tential they have to overcome it with
the right opportunities."
This moving display of children
will be exhibited at the Gilchrist
County Chamber of Commerce 'at
220 S Main St. in Trenton from Au-
gust 8 .through September 4, 2007.
Guests can see the children's photos,
read about their likes and dislikes and
find out more about the adoption pro-
cess.
We invite you to come closer to our
children. Close enough to see their
faces. Close- enough to touch your
heart.

To live fully, bt

to care for


Lindsey Thomas, a communi-
cations coordinator for Haven
Hospice, is responsible for media
relations in the organization's 16-
county service area.
By Lindsey Thomas
Women today juggle so many ac-
tivities that it may be a challenge to
feel as though we are living in the
moment. "Sometimes women be-
come bystanders in their own lives
and don't become fully engaged,"
said Sandra B. Dunn, ACSW, LCSW,.
a private practitioner in Jacksonville
and part-time social worker with Ha-
ven Hospice. She encourages women
to make time for ourselves and pay
attention to our health and well-be-
ing. For example, we can seek in-
formation on how to handle and
eliminate stress, keep our minds and
bodies healthy, and build meaningful
relationships with family and friends.
The Internet has become a great tool
for seeking information with Web
sites such as WebMD.com and iVil-
lage.com, a site dedicated exclusive-
ly to women.
Dunn will be a presenter at the
Speaking of Women's Health 2007
conference in Jacksonville on August
18 at the Hyatt Regency Riverfront
downtown. The purpose of the event
is to educate women on making in-
formed decisions about out health,
well-being and personal safety. The
event is expected to draw 1,500 wom-
en who will attend keynote presenta-
tions and breakout sessions during a
day of pampering and camaraderie.
"Women have a hard time owning
their own power because they have
so many tasks and responsibilities,"
she said. "I am passionate about
helping others becoffie Tully engaged
in their lives.'
Dunn noted that in our society, we
frequently define ourselves by how


isy women need

themselves
much we can fit on our plate. "It is
important to slow down and evaluate
our priorities and values," she said.
"Additionally, we become empow-
ered when we realize that we have
choices with everything we do in
life."
Speaking of Women's Health is a
non-profit foundation that reaches out
to women through educational con-
ferences, television programming,
newsletters, books and more. Dianne
Dunkelman founded the organization
in 1995 as a one-day women's health
event, but it has grown to include
more than 40 conferences and events
in cities throughout the country.
One helpful and interactive feature
of the Speaking of Women's Health
organization is its Web site: http://
HYPERLINK "http://www.speak-
ingofwomenshealth.com" www.
speakingofwomenshealth.com. The
site offers useful information on a
variety of women's health issues
and features a "Take the Pledge for
Better Health" section individuals
can sign up with an e-mail address
and make pledges to improving their
lives. For example, we could take a
"Balancing Stress" pledge to devote
10 minutes a day to focusing on her
Own relaxation or take a "Heart
Health" pledge to walk with a friend
30 minutes a day four to five times a
week. Speaking of Women's Health
sends e-mail updates to motivate
women to keep their pledge(s). So
far, 4,709,729 women have taken a
Pledge for Better Health.
Dunn is looking forward to partici-
pating in the conference next month.
"If I can make a difference in the
lives of people whether they are 20
or 90, it's worth it."

event, visit www.wjct.org/swh in-
dex.htm.

4-Pets Sake
We have the greatest admiration
for a veterinarian clinic in Alachua
county. They have been doing free
spays and neuters on pits for a year
and a half now. This is only for resi-
dents that live in that county. Please
take advantage of their offer; you
can't beat the price!!
Our sympathy reaches out to the
sincere' and humble fans, coaches,
commissioners, athletes, and animal,
organizations for the allegations in-
volving animals. May the days ahead
give us a better tomorrow.
Our goal is 500 alterations by the
end of March 2008 so we are push-.
ing to get 62 more surgeries in by
that time. This program is available
to any resident of any county, but it is
for the general public. We do require
that your pet be at least four months
old, and no more than two pets per
household.
It is official, Saturday, October
6, we are scheduling an enormous
yard sale. Yes, we need merchandise;
however heavy items such as large
appliances and sofa beds we can no
longer handle. As the years go sail-
ing by so does our muscle power.
The minds say we can but the bod-
ies say it ain't gonna happen. We are
over loaded with clothes and exercise
equipment. These articles are, very
difficult to sell.
Matthew Lancaster, everyone here
is pulling for you, Just keep doing
what you're doing. We are amazed
at your progress and we wish you a
speedy recovery.

This "Trip around the World" quilt was bought at a yard sale and we
wonder at the person who cut, pieced, and quilted this treasure. We
hope it will be taken care of for many years.


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
August 2, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Pat Osowieki was busy
helping two ladies learn how to quilt.
She is always so willing to help any-
one as well as all our members. What
one doesn't know, another one does
and that makes for a great day. B.J. is
there also to help when she can.
We had the sewing class from Bron-
son over with Muriel and the girls are
quilting pillow tops. We are proud of
all who learn to quilt and many times
they feel it may not go right but don't
give up and when they get these proj-
ects done they have something they
have done. They should always keep
their first project because in future
years they will see how far they have
come.
I tried Cindy Jo's okra fritters and


6-to-12-inch trees are guaranteed to

said if they were no good, I'd never
do/them again, but those who like
okra said I could make them any-
time.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and one boy and Greg fixed the
television that got hit by lightning two
weeks ago. The yard was mowed and
flower, beds were cleaned. Thanks
Lancaster.
We will be going down to Camp
Caruth next Tuesday to teach sew-
ing to about 60 children. It's so much
fun.
Lunch was great with okra fritters,
kraut, rice, macaroni and cheese,
peas, salads, yummy cherry cake and
so much more.
There were 21 present.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Summer Day Trip: Otter Springs Resort


By Carrie A. Mizell
Last week a group of senior citi-
.zens from Gainesville enjoyed swim-
ming and shuffleboard. This week it
was the Dixie County High School
football team who spent two nights
camping in sleeping bags and train-
ing on a practice field.
n These days Otter Springs RV Re-
sort caters to a wide range of visitors
who flock to the 820-acre park for its
serene setting.
Thomas and Joan Madden first vis-
ited the park in October 2006 and fell
in love with the natural beauty Otter
Springs Resort offered. Today they
oversee day to day operations at the
park.
Though Joan is originally from
Washington and Thomas hails from
West Palm Beach, the couple was liv-
ing in Yulee, Fla. last year when they
discovered Otter Springs RV Resort
on the Internet. Having lived in Nas-
sau County for over 10 years, the
Maddens recognized that sprawling
growth was coming to their stretch
of A1A. Growing more dissatisfied
with their surroundings each day,
the Maddens began looking on the
Internet for a quiet community to re-


locate to.
"My toes grew into the ground here
like roots immediately," Joan said.
"Otter Springs is a little community
all within itself."
Other than the sprawling cypress
and oak trees, recreational features
like the Nature Coast State Trail at-
tracted the Maddens to Otter Springs
RV Resort, initially. Theoretically the
couple planned to purchase bicycles
and ride the 32 mile-long trail to buy
groceries and other household neces-
sities.
"We haven't gotten around to do-
ing that just yet!" Madden said with
a laugh.
Instead the Maddens were hired by
Otter Springs RV Resort owners Ar-
nold and Geri Jackson to manage day
to day operations.
Today, the Maddens oversee park
features which include, 100 RV
sites with full hook-ups, cabins with
equipped kitchens, air conditioning,
full. baths and private front porch
swings, primitive tent campsites for
small or large groups, as well as a
screened pool pavilion with large pa-
tio area and in-ground pool, a screened

a retired Sheriff of Gilchrist County
said. "Don Bennink keeps buying
land around the dairy and spreading
the liquid manure on these grass pas-
tures without cutting in the waste."
Floyd explained that the other
dairies in the county don't spread
their waste in such a manner.
"I'm tired of the flies and the smell.
and the problems involving this,"'
Floyd said.
Ron St. John, managing partner of
Alliance Dairies in Gilchrist County
told the board that Alliance Dairies
does spray effluent on their property


with broad wrap-around porch, kitch- '
en and stone fireplace. The facilities /
are available for reunions, birthday .
parties and weddings. Campers also \"'
have access to two bath houses which
offer hot showers and laundry facili- .- .... .
ties are on-site. Should the sky cloud
up, the Little Otter Club offers board
games, Internet station, exercise gym,
air hockey and football games.
Otter Springs RV Resort boasts two
natural springs and a mile's frontage i .
on the Suwannee River, where a pub- 8 .- .
lic boat launch is available. Visitors -. .
are encouraged to stroll down to the '
river.
Affordable day passes are avail-
able at the front office for community
members who want to enjoy Otter
Springs.
"We had a reunion picnic recently
and all these people who were about
60 years old kept saying that they
remembered visiting Otter Springs ers na '"

and when the neighbors call and com-
plain, they turn off the spray, but they
still have to get rid of the effluent.
"We have a larger land based farm
and we still spread manure on other
properties with the permission of the
landowners," he added.
Ron St. John recommended revok-
ing the ordinance and operating with-
in best management practices involv-
ing the spreading of liquid manure.
