Bell retains Sanders, Trenton elects Hellams, mayoral run-off


By Carrie A. Mizell
Each vote was counted by hand on
Tuesday night and the results are offi-
cially in: Ray Sanders will retain his
Group 2 seat on the Bell Town Coun-
cil. Marcia Hellams was elected to
the Trenton City Commission, Group
3 and a run-off will be held in the
Trenton mayor's race between La-
vaughn-Sessions and Glen Thigpen.
According to the Gilchrist County
Supervisor of Elections Office, 44
percent of Bell's 274 registered vot-
ers cast a ballot on election day, while
just 25 percent of Trenton's 1,041
registered voters went to the poll.
In Bell, Ray Sanders received 73
votes while his challenger Patsy Av-


ery garnered 45 votes. One provi-
sional ballot was cast and one over
vote, according to Connie Sanchez,
Supervisor of Elections.
In the City of Trenton, the race for
the mayor's post is currently up in the
air, but one thing is certain Trenton
residents will see a new mayor begin-
ning Jan. 1,2008 after current mayor,
Pete Randolph was defeated. Chal-
lengers Lavaughn Sessions received
107 votes and Glen Thigpen garnered
76 votes, while Randolph received 71
,votes. Because Sessions received 42
percent of the votes and Thigpen re-
ceived 30 percent of the votes a run-
off will need to be held on Dec. 18,
according to Sanchez.


In the City Commission, Group
3 race Marcia Hellams received 146
votes and her opponent Tracy An-
guish garnered 96 votes. There was
no incumbent in Group 3 because
Glen Thigpen vacated the seat in
October when he announced plans to
run for mayor.
According to official election re-
sults, 22 absentee ballots were cast
and 234 voters went to City Hall to
vote in the City of Trenton.
In the Town of Bell, Iris Roberts re-
tained her Bell Town Council, Group
1 seat by remaining unopposed. Ar-
lene Wilks was also unopposed for -
her Trenton City Commission, Group Ray Sanders
1 seat.


Graduation rate in Gilchrist

County rises to 86 percent


By Carrie A. Mizell
Graduation rates of high school
students in Gilchrist County rose
from 78.7 percent in 2005-2006 to 86
percent in 2006-2007, according to
data released by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education on Friday,
Gilchrist County has not seen this
high of a graduation rate since 2004-
2005 when the'rate was 85.4 percent.
The high school dropout rate for the
county also 'decreased in 2006-2007
to 1.4 percent compared to 2.3 per-
cent in 2005-2006.
"Overall we are very pleased with
.the graduation rate for our district,
however we know that there are still
areas that we need to improve on,"
Jim Surrency, assistant superinten-
dent said. "Helping our students com-
plete their high school program is a
very high priority for all our staff."
According to Surrency, Trenton
High School's graduation rate is 82.9
percent and the school's dropout rate
is 1.8 percent. Bell High School's
graduation rate is 88.1 percent and the
school's dropout rate is 1 percent.
Governor Charlie Crist and Edu-


cation Commissioner Jeanine Blom-
berg announced that the graduation
rate statewide rose to 72.4 percent in
2006-2007, compared to last year's
rate of 71.0 percent.
The graduation rate shows an over-
all increase of 12.2 percent since
1998-1999. Florida's annual high
school dropout rate declined from
last year, dropping to 3.3 percent.
According to Blomberg, this year's
graduation rate is the highest it has
been since Florida employed new,
more accurate data collection meth-
ods during the 1998-99 school year.
Graduation rates for African-Ameri-
can and Hispanic students showed
"the largest growth this year, increas-
ing by 1.8 and 2.3 percent.
The Florida Department of Edu-
cation bases its graduation rate,on
data that follows every single stu-
dent from ninth grade to graduation
yielding. a more precise calculation.
Florida currently stands alone nation-
ally in its practice of compiling and
following individual student records
to determine a true, four-year gradu-
ation rate.

,Thousands attend 'ell Christmas Parade


Submitted
The 2007 Bell Christmas Parade
brought the true feeling of Christmas
to the Town of Bell on Saturday.
"A Storybook Christmas," this
year's theme, boasted 123 parade en-
tries and 50 arts and crafts vendors.
Acting as parade, grand marshal
Iris Roberts sported down the parade
route in a supped up 1926 Model T-
Bucket car driven by Jack Dixon.
Other special guests included* State
Representative Debbie Boyd riding
in her decorated golf cart.
The beginning of the parade fea-
tured the Tri-County Marine Corp
League Color Guard, followed by the
BUS JROTC Color Guard and Flags,
along with the Cadet Marching Unit.
The Toys For Tots float followed,
distributing stuffed animals to chil-
dren .lining both sides of the street.
The Purple Powerhouse Marching
Band joined with the Trenton Tiger
Marching Band to perform Christ-
mas music as they marched. Many
wonderful and creative floats, golf
carts, off-road vehicles and displays
strolled down US 129.
The parade committee opted to
wait until next week's issue of the
Gilchrist County Journal to list the
many parade winners by name.


Commission

reviews new

changes to

EOC facility
By John M. Ayers
On Monday the Gilchrist County
Commission .discussed .a recom-
mendation by Public Safety Direc-
tor Carlos Perez to approve a $2,000.
change order to provide for under-
ground service to the new Emer-
gency Operations Center north of
Bell. Gilchrist County Administra-
tor Ron McQueen explained to the
commission that Central Florida
Electric Cooperative had reduced
the cost of the service to $2,000.
The public safety director was not
attendance at the meeting, but was
reported to have recommended the
service be underground to allevi-
,ate power outages when tropical
storms impact Gilchrist County.
The. board also learned that the
new Emergency Operations Center
no longer has a helicopter pad on
the proposed construction plan, but
the trauma emergency air service
helicopter reportedly could land in
the parking lot adjacent to highway
vehicles.
The five-member board. ex-
pressed concern once they learned
the new facility which will house
the ambulance center will not have
a place for a helicopter to land in an
emergency. Lloyd Kelly, president
of the Alexander Group, told the
board that the helicopter pad that
was identified on the plan was.de-
leted to save the county an estimat-
ed $30,000 in construction costs.
He explained that a helicopter pad
was identified on the original plan
which included sufficient lighting
and appropriate markings for a he-
licopter to land in an emergency.
Initially the new Emergency Op-
erations Center was going to be con-

Trenton Comr


By Carrie A. Mizell
The barn of hammers and smell of
paint drifted out the open doors, of
the Trenton Community Center on
Tuesday as 35 volunteers cleaned,
repaired and replaced during the Gil-
christ County Community Service
Day.
SVolunteers began preparing on
Nov. 28 for community service, day
by performing preparatory tasks at the
community center, including stove
cleaning,' burner replacement, trim
painting, woodwork and pre-paint
taping, according to Maureen Gentry,
executive director of the Gilchrist
County Chamber of Commerce. By
Tuesday, volunteers were ready to
paint the interior of the building,
hang new blinds and replace lights.
The idea for the first ever Gilchrist
County Community Service Day can
be attributed to Gentry and Trenton
City Manager Jered Ottenwess.
"I told Jered that I would get the
manpower if the city would provide
the supplies," Gentry said. "We are
below our budget which was set at
$2000."
A second Community Service Day
has not been set, according to Gentry
who said that it depends on if the City
gets additional site reccomendations
from citizens, budget and volunteer
labor.
"We're just going to have to see
where it goes from here," Gentry
said. "I'm thrilled with the commu-
nity spirit I've seen. Volunteers have
arrived at 8:30 a.m. and worked until
5 p.m. both days."
Volunteer Cecilia Moyers, a mem-
ber of the Gilchrist County Chamber
of Commerce for one year, said the
Community Service Day gave her
an opportunity to meet up with other
members.
Trenton Mayor Pete Randolph who
also volunteered his time on Tuesday
said the Community Service Day
shows that people in the community
can work together to achieve positive
results.
"This is definitely a money. saver
for the town, Randolph said. "The
next project I would like the volun-
teers to take on would be the depot." ,

Christmas presents available through

Tri-County Toys For Tots


By Carrie A. Mizell
Last year 430 school-age children
living in Gilchrist County received
Christmas presents from Tri-County
Toys For Tots.
According to Coordinator Vince
Arcadi, 2006 marked the first year
Gilchrist County has hosted a Toys
For Tots distribution site.
The second annual toy distribu-
tion in Gilchrist County will be held
at First United Methodist Church in
Trenton on Friday, Dec. 14 from 11
a.m. to 6 p.m. The fellowship hall of
the church will be transformed into a
miniature toy store with volunteers
assisting parents in picking out per-
fect presents for children. Each child
will receive between four and seven
toys, according to Arcadi. Those pres-
ents will include a stocking, wooden
toy and activity toy.
, Tri-County Toys For Tots serves


between 1200 and 1400 children in
need living in Levy, Dixie and Gil-
christ Counties each year, according
to Pat Arcadi, volunteer.
"It's hard because we don't have
any big store locally to pull from,"
Arcadi said. "The only big store we
have is Wal-Mart and they won't let
us put a box up inside the store."
In Gilchrist County, Arcadi said
businesses are slow to sponsor large
fundraising efforts for Toys For Toys;
however, Bell High School has set up
boxes throughout the school to col-
lect toys for Toys For Tots.
Two sign-ups have been held in
Trenton, but applications are still
available for families in need this
holiday season. Libraries throughout
the county and area schools have ap-
plications.
Donations are the primary fund-
raiser for Toys For Tots, according to


Arcadi, who explained that donation
cans were set on counters at busi-
nesses throughout the tri-county area
on October 1 to raise funds for the
2007 drive.
"In the past people have gone
around to businesses and said they
were collecting for Toys For Tots,
but they really weren't," Arcadi said.
"Now each of the 23 Toys For Tots
volunteers have to wear name badges
with photo identification and the cur-
rent year on it."
Once parents arrive at the distribu-
tion site next week, they will be asked
to present photo identification show-
ing residency in Gilchrist County and
a personal .social security, card and
social security card for each child
who will benefit from the program,
. according to Vince Arcadi, coordina-
tor. For more information, call (352)

Gilchrist County was well represented at the North Florida Fair in Tallahassee. The Gilchrist County
Extension Office and 4-H members were heavily involved and took many honors at the November
event. Marvin Weaver, Sheila Langford and volunteer Velma Poole prepared the county booth and
received honorable mention for the booth. Counties involved range from the Suwannee River to Pen-
sacola. This year's theme was agriculture and recreation. The Gilchrist County Extension Office
would like to thank Kincaid Mulch, Mary and Joe Barron, Pure Water Wilderness, Scott Tucker and
George Jones the Cane and Syrup maker.

The Law Against Spanking
(Kent Heaton) '


The news from Massachusetts should not come as any
surprise to our humanistic society that continues to
degrade the foundation of a belief in Jehovah God. The
principles of right and wrong no longer are determined by
a moral sense of what God says but rather the .iberal view
of freedom for each to choose as they desire. The book of
Judges concludes with an observation that is very much
likened to our day: "In those days there was no king in
Israel Every man did the right in his own eyes" (Judges
21:25).
God is not the center of the moral universe. His laws of
right and wrong are replaced with the decadent
immorality of selfish desire. Homosexuality, adultery,
sexual perversion and evil thoughts are accepted as a
norm (as seen on television daily). Prayer is forbidden in
school, the Ten Commandments are rejected and God is
slowly being removed from every facet of society. Now
from the state of Massachusetts comes a bill proposing a
ban on spanking. The issue is clouded with an appeal to
those children who have been abused by parents who are
unfit to be parents; who beat their children in their anger
and abuse them in unforgivable ways.
The humanistic agenda is ripe with, language that
refuses the rights of parents to train their children. The
government is seeking to step into the family circle and
determine how parents treat their children. The early
disciples of Christ were forbidden to teach in the name of
Christ and the apostles replied, "We ought to obey God
rather than men" (Acts 5:29).
Amram and Jochebed disobeyed the kings command to


kill their infant son (Moses: Exodus 1,2) because they
were "not afraid of the kings command" (Hebrews
11:23). Pharaoh decreed the death of the infants and
Moses' parents withstood the law to obey the law of God.
Today, parents will need the same courage to stand against
udgodly laws that prohibit the God decreed law of training
children in the "nurture and admonition of the Lord"
(Ephesians 6:4).
Children must have guidance. "The rod and rebuke give
wisdom, but a boy sent off causes shame to his mother"
(Proverbs 29:15). "He who fathers a fool does it to his
sorrow; the father of a fool has no joy ... A foolish son is
a grief to his father, and bitterness to her who bore him"
(Proverbs 17:21, 25). Children must have discipline not
abuse. "He vwho spares his rod hates his son, but he who
loves him chastens him early" (Proverbs 13:24). "Chasten
your son while there is hope, and do not set your soul on
making him die" (Proverbs 19:18). "You shall strike him
with the rod and rescue his soul from SheoL (Proverbs
23:14).
'The rod spoken of by God never suggests abuse. God
abhors those who would abuse children (Ephesians 6:4;
Colossians 3:21). The rod is the measure of discipline that
brings about proper training. It does inflict pain. Parents'
who do not discipline their children hate their children.
Read Hebrews 12:5-11 to see the clear purpose and design
of discipline. This is God's pattern. Let us have boldness
to do what is right. "Therefore, those also who suffer
according to the will of God shall entrust their souls to a
faithful Creator in doing what is right" (1 Peter 4:19).

Santa Fe River cleanup
Please join us at the Brooker,
Bridge on Saturday, Dec. 8 at 9 a.m.
for a cleanup at the Santa Fe River.
This is a nice little spot that serves as,
a swimming hole" for many who live
in the Brooker area. Unfortunately
it gets severely trashed as well. We
need to make a trek up there each year
to clean it up, so we hope you can take
time to spend a couple of hours with
us that Saturday morning. Michael
Stevens will b6 there to lead the way.
To get to the site, take SR 121 north
of town (121 is the continued 34th St.
on the other side of 441). Where the
road splits, take the right fork, which
will be CR 231. Stay on this road
until you get to the bridge.. The, area
to be cleaned is on the left hand and
north side tf the bridge. If you get
. to the Handy Way, you've gone just
a little too far. Michael or someone
will stay up near the bridge to attract
your attention when you'vearrived at
the right spot.
While we are all getting into a busy
time of the year, your help at the river
would be truly appreciated if you can
spare a few hours.- If you'd be so
kind, let me know you're planning to
come if you can.
Thank you so much!

largest wish-granting organization.
Make-A-Wish Foundation offers
hope, strength and joy to children
who are terminally ill by granting
three wishes. Soon the Make-A-Wish
Foundation will receive a check from
Napa Auto Parts in Trenton totaling
$1800.
On Oct. 8, Napa employees Candy
Brown, Manager Peggy Gregory, Pa-
tricia Newhouse and Shayne Whet-
stone began asking customers to
donate a few dollars to the Make-A-
Wish Foundation.
"The response from our customers
was just overwhelming," Whetstonie
said. "We want to thank everyone for
their participation."
This year marks the second year
the store has taken up the corporate
challenge to raise funds. In.2006 the
employees collected $800. This year
each Napa store was asked to collect
$78, according to,Gregory, who ex-
plained that the Trenton store is one
of only two stores in the area who ac-
tually collected money for the Gator
Network and Napa Auto Parts spon-
sored fundraiser.
"We have run into a few customers
who have children and grandchildren
that were helped by this program,"
Whetstone said. "78 cents on every
dollar collected goes to the chil-
dren."
Newhouse, a Napa delivery driver,
collected donations outside of Hitch-
cock's Foodway in Trenton on sev-
eral different afternoons.
"We beg really hard and people
laugh, but they give us a donation,"
Gregory said. "It feels good to be able

to help the children in this way."
The employees now say that col-
lecting donations could be their call-
ing. While donations for the Make-
A-Wish Foundation ended on Dec.
3, the employees have switched their
fundraising efforts to benefit the
Bark-N-Purr Charity Concert, which
will be held in Bronson on Feb. 23,
2008.

Christmas


Bell High HOSA members Jessica Smith, Charity Ware, Rahma Mkuu, Orie Sheppard, Kara Smith and
Jady Gray recently attended leadership camp.

HOSA officers attend leadership camp


Submitted
Last weekend the Bell High HOSA
Chapter went to LDC Leadership
Camp.
HOSA stands for Health Occupa-
tions Students of America. Many
high school health academies across
the country are involved in this orga-'
nization.
The Florida HOSA Organization,
along with its state officers and na-
tional officers, organized the yearly
leadership camp held at Camp Ka-
laqua. It was a great experience for'


all those who attended. The mem-
bers who attended were: Charity
Ware-President, Rahma Mkuu-Vice
President, Jady Gray- President
Elect, Kara Smith-Historian, Jessica
Smith-Parliamentarian, Orie Shep-
pard-Fundraising Officer, and the
Bell High HOSA Advisor and Health
Academy Director, David Gray. The
theme of the camp was the Disney
movie, High School Musical. All
the campers were organized into the
cliquish high school hierarchy social
groups; the nerds, the jocks, the reb-


Thanks so much to all who have

of Trenton. I urge each citizen to

and elect me, Glen Thigpen as
your next Mayor. I am grateful for
the opportunity you have given me
and I am confident that I am the
*, right choice for Mayor of Trenton.
I am available if you may have
any questions concerning the
business of the city or projects that are underway.
Once again, Thanks for you support and I look forward to
serving you. Call on me anytime 463-0312.

els, the overachievers, the divas, and
the hippie musicians.
The camp included leadership
workshops such as Trust,Team Build-
ing, and Communication and also
skits which allowed the campers to
perform acts that they created them-
selves in a short amount of time.,
The camp also included a very
entertaining keynote speaker and
Florida HOSA State Advisor, Lloyd
Devault.
On the last afternoon of the camp,
there were games played such as the
balloon pop contest, book balancing
races, and musical chairs, along with
a variety of others. Also that night
a hay ride and a bonfire were held.
Before the campers were dismissed,
more skits were performed arid
awards were given out to the student
campers.

shopping spree at TES

z. Awl



"L .."I


By Carrie A. Mizell
Anxious Trenton Elementary
School students scanned tables lined
with Christmas presents ranging from
scented silk roses and stuffed animals
to faucet slime and jewelry sets each
priced .15 cents to $16.10.
"I'm buying presents for my friends
and my little brother," Jasmine An-
derson said.
Jasmine, 9, is a student in Jamie
McKenzie's second grade class. On
Tuesday morning her arms were full
of brightly colored gifts as she stood
in line at the school's Holiday Gift
Fair prepared to spend every penny
of her $1.37 shopping spree budget.
The annual gift fair will run through
Friday, Dec. 7. Students were prom-
ised several opportunities to look at
gift items throughout the week.


From The Desk

-m--H m

of the
Superintendent
Parents, we need your help. Dur-
ing the last few weeks we have had
incidents of students bringing over
the counter medicines, such as cough
syrup and tablets to school. Several
have brought prescription drugs to
school. In both cases, students have
shared these with other students and
the drugs and medicines have been
ingested. We have had to transport
two students by ambulance to. the.
emergency room for treatment. For-
tunately, neither case proved fatal.
Parents, we need you to talk ,to
your children about the dangers of
taking over-the-counter medicines
and the. dangers of taking medicines
not prescribed for you. Everyone's
body is different and may react in a
different way to a drug or medicine.
What may give,one student a "buzz",
may be a "downer" for another and
drop the blood pressure low enough
to cause death. Mom and Dad, we are
asking that you monitor what over-
the-counter medicines your children
are buying and why., Also, that you
lock up or dispose of any medicines
lying around the house. Please talk
to them aboot the dangers ,of taking
these for "kicks." As a reminder, it
is against school board rules to have
over-the-counter medicines or drugs
at school. Offenders will be dealt
with, and the punishment can include
e,.pulsion from school.
Did \ou kno" that NMiamiDade
Count, increased its trade \ ith In-
dia last year by 49 percent? Miami
wants even more of India's trade. 'In
addition to Spanish. ma\be we need
to start teaching Indian dialects.
Statewide, 29 of 67 school dis-
tricts reported an enrollment decline.
Gilchrist Schools had their first de-
cline in years of about 26 students.
Much of thmeblame for familieshov-
ing or leaving the state is placed on
hurricanes, insurance, and housing.
Another factor no%, in pla. is the cost
of fuel. Many families are struggling
with the cost of gasoline and driving
miles, to their jobs. With the USA
competing with China: and India for
oil, relief at the pump may not come
soon.
Columbia Count\ Conmmissioners
ha\ e adopted a $1.500 educational fa-
cilities impact fee for all new single-
family homes. The fee will increase
$500 a year for the next four years
until, it hits $3,500 in year five. This
will help offset the cost of providing
new students with classroom seats.
There will soon be horse racing in
Hamilton County. Hamilton Jai-Alai
and Poker plans to break ground on a
one-mile horse race track at its facil-
ity off 1-75 near the Georgia border.
The School Board recently broke
ground on a, new ten-room addition


at Trenton Elementary School. This
building will provide TES with eight
new classrooms and two computer
labs. They will be replacing porta-
ble buildings in which students have
been housed. Plans are for the build-
ing to be occupied in August of 2008.
Please drive carefully when entering
TES's campus as the playground has
been moved to accommodate the
construction.
The world's eyes are on China and
India, but did you know that the Euro-
pean Union has lately provided more
than 65 percent of the all foreign in-
vestments in the USA. Browse the
internet and see who owns "Ameri-
can" brands such as Vaseline, Penn-,
zoil, and even the LA Dodgers. Per-
haps we should look at forging even
stronger economic ties with the EU.
For our students to compete with
their counterparts from other nations
for the best jobs. and to maintain our
current standard of living, they must
master the skills required to compete
in:the 21st Century. All students, en-
rolled in both technical and academic
study tracks, must master not only
math, science, language arts. and the
social sciences, but also master the
skills of how to work with others,
teamwork, and develop a great work
ethic. Our schools must continue to
improve their le\ibilitN in order to
give all students a chance to grow the
necessary skills. Parents, the oppor-
tunities are going to be there for sour


children to be successful. Our teach-
ers and staff need your support and
encouragement to motivate and pre-
pare your children to take advantage
of this changing world. V '

Bulldogs stumble at
Oak Hall

Tuesday A.iV' emnbe r 27 '
The Lady Bulldogs came out look-
ing for a win against the Oak Hall
Lady Eagles. The Lady Bulldogs' ef-
forts to get back on the N\ inning track
came up short. Turnovers and fouls

dogs against Oak Hall.
The varsity boys also played,,at

boys put up a fight but in the end Oak

Last week the Bell SR. FFA andAg classes participated in restoring the welcome signs that are located at the North
and South entrances of Bell. The students repainted the post, added new boards, cleaned the letters and restored the
landscape. The signs were first built in 1992 by the Bell FFA, and since then the FFA chapter has taken part in keeping
them clean and making our visitors feel welcome when coming into our beautiful community. Part of the Bell FFA
goal this year, is .to promote the FFA and to be active in the community.


Why is reading instruction necessary?


S^Many people ask the question,
"Why is reading instruction necessary
in middle and high school?" Nancy
Rowe, Reading Coach at Bell High
School, and Wanda Clemons, Read-
ing Coach at Trenton High School,,
provided Rotarians the answer to
this question in a presentation at the
weekly Rotary meeting.
The Reading Coaches explained
reading is more than being able to
sa\ the words. The students must be
able to comprehend the text. With-
out explicit instruction of reading
strategies, students will continue to
be struggling readers. Once a stu-
dent enters middle and high school,
reading expectations increase. The
students must read faster, read. large
amounts of text, gain information
front multiple texts, and read and
understand difficult material. The
amount of informational text increas-
es from the amount of narrative text
used in elementary school.
State requirements mandate all
,students -who scored Le'el 1 or 2 on
FCATbe placed iri an intensive read-'
ing class. Bell and Trenton High
Schools instruct students in intensive
treading classes with trained reading
teachers. These teachers have been
'trained in the five components of
reading: phonemic awareness, pho-
1nics, fluency, vocabulary, and com-
prehension Students are treated as
indi\ ideals and are placed in reading
classes based on their reading needs.

Amy Ergle and Ashley Wood led the team in scoring. Amy had 1.2 points.
Ashley pla% ed well on both ends of the court, she finished with 10 points and
7 steals. Most of the team saw playing time. The 50-39 win over Espirit de
Corps definitely helped.
The boys followed the girls and seemed just as determined as the Lady
Bulldogs to shake off the loss Tuesday. The game stayed close in the first
quarter with the Bulldogs leading 15-12 but in the second quarter the Bull-
'dogs pulled away and led 42-20 at halftime. Espirit de Corps outscored the
BulJd',., in both the third and fourth quarter but the huge lead at halftime
saved the Bulldogs. The Bulldogs were led by Justin Fowler(14 points, 8
rebounds) and James Thomas (25 points, 12 rebounds). The team did a good
job of sharing the ball and keeping turnovers to a minimum. The Bulldogs
won'72-53.

IRS Announces 2008 Standard

Mileage Rates


Wayne McLeod with guide, Gary Jordan. Wayne killed a 9-point buck
with 21-inch wide antlers on November 25, 2007 in Sonora, Texas.


Rusty Yelvington with guide and outfitter, Wren Howard. Rusty
killed a 9-point buck with 21 3/4-inch wide antlers on November 25,
2007 in Sonora, Texas.


The Internal Revenue Service to-
day issued the 2008 optional stan-
dard mileage rates used to calculate
the deductible costs of operating an
automobile for business, charitable,
medical or moving purposes.
Beginning Jan. 1, 2008, the stan-
dard mileage rates for the use of a
car (including vans, pickups or panel
trucks) will be:
50.5 cents per mile for business
miles driven;
19 cents per mile driven for medi-
cal or moving purposes; and
14 cents per mile driven in service
of charitable organizations.'.
The new rate for business miles
compares to a rate of 48.5 cents per
mile for 2007. The new rate for medi-
cal and moving purposes compares to
20 cents in 2007. The rate for miles
driven in service of charitable organi-
zations has remained the same.
The standard mileage rate for busi-
ness is based on an annual study of
the fixed and variable costs of operat-
ing an automobile; the standard rate
for medical and moving purposes is
based on the variable costs as deter-


mined by the same study. Runzheim-
er International, an independent con-
tractor, conducted the study for the
IRS.
The mileage rate for charitable
miles is set by law.
A taxpayer may not use the business
.standard mileage rate for a vehicle
after using any depreciation method
under the Modified Accelerated Cost
Recovery System (MACRS), after
claiming a Section 179 deduction for
that vehicle, for any vehicle used for
hire or for more than four vehicles
used simultaneously. Revenue Pro-
cedure 2007-70 contains additional
information on these standard mile-
age rates.

'and doors were n- ,
painted, the kitchen
,cabinets were given a new look, new
v. code n blinds and panels to absorb
sound (which were made by our vol-
unteers) will be installed at a later
date.
The Trenton Community Center is
a place that is available to all county
resident's to use or for a small fee;
,they just need to contact Dorothy at
.the. city hall 463-4000 ext. 304. In
the past it has been used as a meet-
ing place by organizations, clubs,
square dancers, line dancing classes,
city and county training classes, fam-
ily reunions, events and much more.
Thanks to everyone for proving to us
all that no matter how big and popu-
lated the county may get, we will
.always retain our small county and
Community attitude, pride and spirit
:by working together doing whatever
is necessary to get the job done.

urday Market of the High Springs
Farmers'.Market and live jazz with
the Ben Champion Trio (Editor's
note: photo available.)
Ben Champion plays sax and flute
and has been performing since the
age of 7. Growing up in Miami in
a musical family he has been a first
call musician for over 40 years and
played with a who's who of the jazz
world. Except for a brief time spent
in Los Angeles, Ben has been a Flori-
da-based musician. The Sun Sentinel
had this to say about Ben's playing.
"He is a musician of extraordinary tal-
ent and the lyricism of his saxophone
and flute tunes are as satisfying as
they are tasteful." Vic Donnell plays
keyboards with the Trio and is a mu-
sical prodigy. Originally from Long
Island, he was offered a scholarship
to the Julliard School of Music for
Classical piano at the age of 8. Since
Vic was already into Jazz, playing the
Hammond organ, he passed up that
opportunity. Eventually, Vic studied
jazz at the Northern Illinois Uni-
versity. After college he headed to
Miami for the lively jazz scene and
met, among others, Ben Champion.
Mike Pokriefka plays drums with the
Trio and has been playing for over
50 years, since banging on a potato
chip can when recovering from a
broken leg in high school. In his na-
tive Detroit, Mike was an in demand
drummer who could drive a big band
and swing. Since moving to North
Florida he has been a major force in
the area for the growth of jazz.

is located in James Paul Park in down-

My Life
by Rufus J. Washington


Captain Rufus J. Washington standing with the Drill Instructors
(DIs), Officer Training Command Pensacola, Officer Candidate
School, Naval Air Station, Pensacola, FL on June 15, 2007.


(Series conclusion from the
November 15th edition)
Making full use of my Marine Corps
training and experience, I worked for
Roadway Express and RPS respec-
tively. In those days, Roadway re-
quired all Maintenance Supervisors
to undergo extensive technical skills
training. While so doing, I achieved
the highest score ever for success-
fully completing the Technical Skills
Course. The Technical Skills Course,
developed by National Education
Training Corporation, is a complex,
18-month Correspondence Course,
covering all facets of vehicle engi-
neering and maintenance. My aver-
age scores on the tests were 99.62.
There is no doubt in my mind that the
time I spent in the base library read-
ing good books and completing corre-
spondence courses are a contributing
factor in this achievement. In 1991, I
was given "The Galen Roush Award
for Excellence." In 1992, I was ac-
corded The Pinnacle of the Pyramid
Award, Management Employee of
the Year, District VII.
In 1993, I was promoted to Re-
gional Maintenance and Safety
Manager (RMSM) and transferred
to RPS, Memphis, Tennessee. In
October 1995, I was promoted tq
Manager Maintenance, RPS, Pitts-
burgh General Headquarters (PGH),
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Today it's
called FEDEX GROUND. This was
the apex of 39 years in Motor Trans-
portation that began on November
7, 1956. the day I joined the United
States Marine Corps. The Manager
Maintenance manages the mainte-
nance budget, writes vehicle speci-
fications, establishes vehicle mainte-
nance facilities. and the acquisition of
I eiicultar equipment It's imperative
that the Manager Maintenance have -
a thorough kno%% ledge of local. state,
and federal la'-,s appertaining to the
Motor Carrier Industry and The De-
partment of Transportation's Federal
Motor Carrier Safety Regulations
(FMCSR). In 1997, I was chosen
for the Pittsburgh General Headquar-
ter, Leadership Award, for Superior
Performance. Also in 1999, I was


given the Gold Level for Process
Improvement. At my'retirement, the
following excerpts are from my boss,
Senior Vice President of Transporta-
tion, Safety and Maintenance, Execu-
tive Vice President, and President re-
spectively: "You-will have your mark
on this company for years. You have
been a great leader. I have really
enjoyed working with you;" "You
are a true professional and have left
an indelible mark on RPS. You per-
formed at high level and will always
be appreciated for your great effort;"
"Thanks for your contribution over
the years to our company success.
We will miss you. Enjoy your retire-
ment." The Executive Vice Presi-
dent and President have since retired.
My former boss is still employed at
FEDEX GROUND. He, the Execu-
tive Vice President, and I, exchange
emails from time to time.
One can spend their entire life
complaining about unfortunate cir-
cumstances; and while so doing,
accomplish nothing. Neither equal
opportunity nor equal access were
available for African Americans in
the segregated South of the 1930s,
40s, and 50s. I've always been of the
opinion, that success favors the pre-
pared mind, regardless of the circum-
stance one finds themself in.
My suggestion to young people:
form good habits and become their
slave; get an education; delay self-
gratification; get rid of the rotten atti-
tude; and don't blame others for your
problems. I've never considered fail-
ure or quitting; neither was an option
for me.
Do an introspective, and say to
yourself: "today I shed the skin
\hicli hath. too long. suffered the
bruise-.of filtuwe and the wounds of
medioc rity "' >.-: .
This writer Nkill ne er ever "aim
lok'" nor acceptt niediocrit',." My
children can -attest to the fact that I
did not accept anything less than a
best effort. I'm just as committed to-
day to a best effort ideology as I was
51 years ago when I enlisted in the
United States Marine Corps.

VISIT OUR NEW LOCATION
L. Frank Grant Realty, Inc.














In July 1983, I opened L. Frank Grant Realth at 216-A
North Main Street. Trenton. Since that time, with the help of
my assistant, Dot Cuesta, and Associates, I have worked
from that location. Now I have moved the office to 701 NE
1st Avenue. Trenton.
This move will help me spend more time with my wife

Drama students prepare

for "The Nutcracker"


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Nutcracker will take on the
Mouse King in a Christmas fantasy
to be performed at Trenton Elemen-
tary School on Friday, Dec. 14 at 7
p.m. by 37 drama club students.
Actors range from fourth to sixth
grade students, all of whom have
been .practicing for the production
since September, according to Krista
Perryman, director.
Stars to watch include: Mallory
Whitley as the Nutcracker, Emily
Goettsche as Marie, Madyson Feath-
er as a doll, Alexis Vega as a balle-
rina, Kimberly Vickers as a cat and
Bailey Hof as Sweet Tooth.
The 2007 winter production on
The Nutcracker has already cost the
TES Drama Club $3,000, accord-
ing to Perryman, who explained that
costs will continue to rise as the pro-
duction date draws closer. The drama
club holds fundraisers throughout the
year to offset production costs. Fund-.
raisers include: Setting up a pumpkin
patch, selling wooden roses and staff
baked potato lunches, a booth at the
fall festival and organizing the Down
Home Days pageant. Set construction
is performed free of charge by John
Yencho's construction class at Tren-
ton High School, Perryman said.
. "The production grows every year
and I feel like the community expects
more of us each year," Perryman
said.
Two productions are held each
year, according to Perryman. The.
spring production will combine dra-
ma enthusiasts from TES and THS
as students ii grades four through


12 take the stage to perform a major
Broadway production.
A music and theatre major, Per-
ryman began directing plays at TES
nine years ago. Her love for theatre
compels Perryman to see that TES
has a drama club that does not just
stand on risers and sing, but per-
forms a dramatic choral production.
Students are expected to audition for
each of the drama club's performanc-
es and Perryman said she spends a
great deal of time talking with stu-
dents about different audition styles
so if they decide to pursue theatre as
a career one day they will be prepared
to audition.
"I started out with one show each
year and I was writing each one,"
Perryman said. "When we lost the
music program I began doing two
shows each year."
The goal is to involve as many. stu-
dents as possible, according to Perry-
man who explained that not only are
the actors students, but also the stage
crew is manned by students who are
often too shy to perform on stage, but
still want to be involved.
"We don't have enough boys so
we're limited in what we can do,"
Perryman said. "We have three boys
and a lot of girls dressing up as
boys."
In the future, Perryman would like
to see the drama club grow to be self
sufficient running totally off ticket
sales.
Tickets for the production, which
will be held in the TES cafetoriumr
are $4 for adults and $2 for students.

morous maneuvers to rule (or ruin
their brother's new romance, th
father finally breaks in with his an
nouncement. He's been offered
better job in New York! This wi]
mean leaving their home in St. Loui
and missing the fair! At this the girl
unite for action
The play is directed by John Yen
cho and assisted by Janice Beach.

Changes to EOC facility
(Continued from page 1)


structed with revenues from FEMA
and Emergency Management grants.
The two state and federal agencies
were reported to be going through a
dispute process and Gilchrist County
was advised they would have to fund
an estimated $180,000 from the Gen-
eral Fund to construct the facility.
The construction plan was reviewed
and reduced to meet the changing
demands of increasing construction
i costs.
The board discussed the impact
that the loss of a helicopter landing
pad would have on the new EOC
facility. Board members discussed
, options with the president of the Al-
exander Group regarding what the
county can build to provide a suitable
n landing site on property adjacent to
e the new facility.
"I had rather have a helicopter
landing site at the new EOC facility,"
said Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr.
Commissioner Randy Durden
asked the county administrator what
the estimated costs of the helicopter
) landing spot that the county- previ-
e ously built adjacent to the jail was.
I- McQueen explained the 60'x 60'
a concrete slab is what is referred to as
1l a helicopter landing spot. The county
s had an estimated $3,000 in ronstruc-
s tion material when Department of
Corrections inmate labor squad com-
- pleted,the slab last year.


l

!t
e


Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
made a motion to table the decision
involving the underground service as
well as the helicopter spot at the new
EOC facility until the items could be
researched and brought back to the
board. Commissioner Durden agreed
with a second before the board voted
in favor of the action.

Briana Bishop
(Continued from page 1)
in the pictures taken involving win-
ners. She is also required.to attend the
Houston Livestock Show in Houston,
Texas, and the International Brahman
Congress in Fort Worth, Texas. The
Brahman Congress will be the 14th
time it has ever been held and this
is only the second time it has been
hosted in the United States. Briana
is looking forward to meeting new
people and seeing what is going on in
the Brahman industry all around the'
world.
Briana is the daughter of Mark and
Christel Bishop of Trenton, the sister
of Brandalyn and Bethalan Bishop
of 'Trenton, the granddaughter of
Larry and Elizabeth Studstill of Tren-
ton, and Robert and Ovieda Bishop
of Chiefland. She is also the great-
granddaughter of Jim and Mickie
Douglas of Ocala.


Animal control agreement
(Continued from page 2)


voted 4-0 in favor of the action.
Chief Smith asked the board if they
would approve Andy Home, a volun-
teer that would like to become a re-
serve police officer in Trenton. Chief
Smith introduced Home to the com-
mission. Home lives near Bell and
teaches karate in the cofnmunity.
Chief Smith pointed out that the
reserve police officer must serve a
minimum of 16 hours a month in the
department. The reserve officer does
not receive any type of monetary
compensation for his service, but his
police certification will be kept ac-
tive. Home told the Commission that
he recently completed the 80-hour
law enforcement certification course
that is required by Florida Statutes.
Commissioner Glen Thigpen made a
motion to approve Home as a reserve
officer in the police department;
Commissioner. Kinsey gave a second


to the action before the board voted
4-0 in favor of the appointment.
The city manager told the com-
mission about the Regional Wellfield
Plan which is being proposed as a
part of the Suwannee River Water
Management District involving local
.municipalities. Ottenwess pointed
out that he would be presenting a 40-
page packet for the board to review.
He added that the $10 million pro-
posal would provide a reserve well
field for Trenton in the future. The
local municipalities would split the
$10 million cost to provide water for
the future.
Kinsey said he is concerned about
how the City of Trentonl would do
without the revenues from the sale
of water to the residents and busi-
nesses in Trenton. The commission
will consider this' proposal in a future
meeting.
