County planner brings

urban background to a

growing Gilchrist County


Gilchrist County planner Taylor Brown is getting to know all aspects
of the county since accepting the position three months ago.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County's new county
planner admits that his urban back-
ground is more inline with subways
and skyscrapers than flood plans and
agriculture.
Three months ago Taylor Brown
veered from the familiar.
With 10 years experience as a coun-
ty planner, most recently serving as
county planner for Arlington County,
Virginia, Brown opted to accept the
position in Gilchrist County, replac-
ing Stacy Winfield who resigned ear-
lier this year for health reasons.
"I am now learning the context of
planning in a rural county," Brown
said. "I just toured a dairy in Bell and
it was fascinating."
As the county planner, Brown will
be responsible for coordinating vari-
ous uses of land for the sake of effi-
ciency and to minimize conflicts with
existing land.


A Washington, D.C. native, Brown
moved to Gainesville three years ago
and has since served on the city's de-
velopment review board and the Ala-
chua County Planning Commission.
"I feel like I have come to this
area at a good time because Gilchrist
County is under growth pressure
now," Brown said. "Now is the time
to plan and prepare rather than later
especially since Gilchrist County
does not have a high tax base."
Brown is still getting acclimated
to his new position by meeting lo-
cal politicians and business leaders,
but he already has a good feel for the
area.
"We have concurrency issues com-
ing down the pipe such as the SR 26,"
Brown said. "We have to pool our
resources with other municipalities
like the City of Newberry who we've
been working with on SR 26."

Who knew a little mosquito would
draw so much attention?
Allan Fink may be the most pop-
ular resident of Steinhatchee, Fla.
since he purchased and began flying
a one-seat Mosquito helicopter last
year that was built at Composite FX,
an ultralight helicopter plant in Tren-
ton.
"I had flown airplanes before, but
it was nothing like this," Fink said.
"Now everyone in town stops by my
house to see it and every fellow in
town says he's got to have a Mos-
quito."
As a retiree, Fink said he takes his
Mosquito up at least three times a
week just to fly around. Last Thurs-
day, Friday and Saturday Fink land-
ed his Mosquito XE in Trenton for
a Factory Fly-in at Composite FX,
which has sold over 80 helicopters
within the last three years.
According to Composite FX co-
owner Gary Junkin, helicopters from
as far away as California and Minne-
sota landed'in a hay field along CR
319 throughout the three-day event.
Twenty Mosquito owners were drawn
to the event, as well as 300 to 400
spectators who sat in lawn chairs and
on tailgates to gaze up at the Mosqui-
to helicopters aV they flew in.
Tours of the plant were also popu-
lar among local residents and visitors

Emergency Operations Center takes shape on US 129
By John M. Ayers
The new Gilchrist Emergency Op-
erations Center north of Bell has tak-
en on a new look after the foundation
site prep was completed and pre-slab
plumbing was installed before the
Christmas holidays.
The pouring of over .425 yards
of concrete for the slab took a con-
tractor two.days as a majority of the W 7iI
work was performed at night.
The concrete contractor had a
crane style apparatus that provided
the pump-pouring machine the abil-
ity to reach over the entire slab and
pour the concrete wherever it needed

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR AL


THURSDAY, JANUARY 3,


Happy New Year!
The Gilchrist County Journal was
passed on to the printer on Monday,
Dec. 31 in order to give our staff a
day to spend with their families. We
hope each of you had a safe and Hap-
py New Year.
SLooking into 2008 I see a dim light
at the end of a very interesting politi-
cal year that could be the beginning
of reduce and re-identify the priori-
ties of services to be provided within
this area.
I The first public meeting of the new
year will involve the Town of Bell.
This small municipality is approach-
ing a cross road that will lead them
into a tough 2008. With the resurfac-
ing of several existing roads set to
begin in January in the municipality,
will the council be willing to con-
tinue to expand services to the grow-
ing community of businesses and
residents? At this time the residential
home market in Bell has many new
houses available for families to move
into. The growth that is expected to
tome to this area has only slowed for
the time being. I don't expect it to re-
inain at this pace much longer.
In Gilchrist County the growth has
been slower than what the Board of
County Commission had prepared
for in their 2008-09 budget. The re-


duction in revenues from building
permits and impact fees have re-
duced the projected revenues by over
$100,000 during the first quarter of
the new budget year. The board has
taken measures to have their financial
staff provide them with monthly rev-
enue reports during their two month-
ly meetings.
In the City of Trenton some lead-
ership roles have changed, as a new
commissioner will be sworn in as
well as a new Mayor. The ques-
tion remains will it be business as
usual. Will the four-member council
with the addition of the new chair-
man have the leadership abilities to
blaze a new trail to strive for finan-
cial security and establish a reserve
for the tough future that lies ahead
for this small rural community. Will
this council approve what is recom-
mended to them, or will they advise
their staff to take a close look at what
is best for the struggling community.
The future is before the residents
of Gilchrist County. The municipali-
ties have already spoken, the choice
for change will be given beginning
in the January 29, 2008 Presidential
Primary ballot. I am in hopes that
Gilchrist County will go to the polls
and display a stronger voice than
what was put forth in the recent mu-


meet

Heart

Matters
By Angie Land
As a little girl, Christmas at our
house was always a big celebration...
my Daddy would wake us up early
to open presents and Mama would
have the house smelling so good with
Christmas dinner in the ovep. She
still does! But I remember always
going back to our Christmas tree after
all the presents were opened and the
family celebration was over. That
tree seemed so sad standing there all
alone... and even now as an adult, I
still have trouble leaving it up very
long past Christmas Day. I like mov-
ing forward-don't you? After Christ-
mas, I immediately start looking for
the fresh clean pages of the New
Year's calendar. Depending on how
you look at it, those pages can repre-
sent days full of dread and demands
or they can shine with possibility and
opportunities! The Bible records the


When I Am Old And Gray Headed
(Kent Heaton)


The infirmity of old age is the burden of a fleshly
temple ravaged by time through disease and increasing
weakness of mind and body. Solomon spoke of the
descent into the difficult days when the affliction and
sadness burdened life; the arms and hands tremble; the
legs bow down; teeth are few and the eyes grow dim;
hearing is lost and the voice is softer; the "almond tree
blossoms" and the appetite fails. Death is swallowed up
as the loosing of a silver cord or the golden bowl that is
broken and the pitcher shattered at the fountain
(Ecclesiastes 12). Old age is looked upon as a time of
great difficulty and sometimes despair sets in. The
thought is that life for all its good is over and there is
nothing left to do.
The author of Psalm 71 is unknown. What a wonder
their name would be to declare to all generations but in
God's will the name remains silent. Vibrant in this Psalm
is the spirit of someone who has found that old age is
not the end but a continuing of what they had sought to
do all their lives. Psalm 71 is a declaration of trust and
hope in the Lord not an end of things. Trust is
proclaimed in verses one and five with hope the surety
of faith (vv5,14). The author does not express giving up
but rather there is much work to be done.
His faith in the Lord is as secure as a "strong
habitation" and a "rock" and a "fortress" (v3). He is
oppressed by the wicked but will not allow them to
destroy his faith in the blessings of Jehovah God (4).
The love of His Lord has guided him from youth (vv5,6)
and his life is a testimony of Jehovah's grace. His
enemies marvel at his faith and the longevity of his trust
in Jehovah. He begs that Jehovah not forsake him "in


the time of old age" (v9).
The aged author is not ready to give up serving the
Lord. He is doing everything he can to reaffirm his
willingness to establish righteousness, obedience, praise
and honor to the God he has served so faithfully. His
mouth will not be silent but "tell of Your righteousness
and Your salvation all the day" (v15). His body may
have weakened by the passing of time but he declares
that he will "go in the strength of the Lord God" (vl6).
Can you see the gleam in his eye? Can you feel the
strength in his voice to tell the old, old story? His work is
not over it continues.
He cannot quit telling people about the praises of His
God. The Lord has been his teacher from youth (vl7)
and he must tell every generation about the wondrous
things Jehovah God has done in his life. He writes,
"And even when I am old and gray, 0 God, do not
forsake me, until I declare Your strength to this
generation, Your power to all who are to come" (Psalms
71:18). There are stories to tell, lessons to teach, souls to
touch and work to be done. The generations after him
must hear the good news. The "young folk" must know
of the power of Jehovah God. His life is a living
testimony to the strength and power of God.
"0 God, who is like You?" (v19). He knows the Lord
will care for him and give him strength to cany on. He
praises Him for His faithfulness, redemption and
righteousness (vv22-24). There is a lot of spark left in
this aged man. There is a lot of work to be done even
when we are old and gray headed. May we never stop
serving the Lord until the time comes to lay our armor
down then rest!

she always there for me.
Future plans: Going to Santa
Fe Community College and ma-
joring in early education.
What is something not many
people know about you? I want
to travel all over the world. I'm
going to California this summer
with some friends.


Apostle Paul saying it best:
"...I press on to take hold of that
for which Christ Jesus took hold of
me...but one thing I do: forgetting
what is behind and straining toward
what is ahead, I press on toward the
goal to win the-prize for which God
has called me lieavenward in Christ
Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)
Understanding that God has a
plan and purpose for our lives is
important, but He has called us to
participate with Him in bringing
that purpose to reality. Paul says
we have to "press of" or keep mov-
ing forward to fulfill that plan. Then
he gives us instruction on how to do
just that. Forgetting what is behind
doesn't mean that we can't remember
our past...only God can intentionally
forget anything. What it does mean
is that the past shouldn't take prior-
ity over the present and future. Too
many of us live continually with
the hurt and failures of the past and
can't seem to move ahead in forgive-
ness and success. Or maybe we live
in the past because we believe they
were our best days, and the rest of
our years will pale in comparison-
and they absolutely will as long as
we choose to stay behind. God's
plan here is for us to give the pres-
ent and future our energy, our hope
and our faith that God's plan for us
will be "immeasurably more than
all we ask or imagine, according to
His power that is at work within us."
(Ephesians 3:20) The abundant life
that Christ offers us is not a destina-
tion, but a journey...and to find it, we
keep moving forward until we reach
that "heavenward" home.
The second part of the instruction
is just as critical; "straining toward
what is ahead" is something we need
to give special attention. Webster's
dictionary defines strain as "to strug-
gle; to make a desperate effort."
This is our first clue that pressing
on and moving forward will not be
an easy thing to do. "Easy" usually
means staying right in that comfort-
able spot-it may not even be a great
spot, but at least we know what to
expect...not much! But we do have
the choice: we can take the easy way
and spend the rest of our lives won-
dering if there was more, or we can
start making that desperate effort to
find and and live in the purpose for which
God planned our whole life.

COOKING AND CARRYIN' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


How about this weather?
Today, Monday, it is pretty warm
outside, but I understand by the time
this paper is in the hands of our read-
ers it will be freezing. Then it is
supposed to warm up again by the
weekend. At this point our poor ol'
mustard greens in our garden don't
know if they should perk up or wilt.
Speaking of mustards and our
garden, my husband has turned out
to be a pretty good gardener. I can't
tell you how much that pleases me.
I grew up with a father who could
make anything grow. In fact after he
retired from farming he found that he
couldn't give up planting altogether
so he turned to gardening.
Like most farm families, we al-
ways had large garden and spent a lot
of time during the spring and summer
hoeing, picking, shelling and putting
up the produce that he had planted.
But, when he retired and really had
time to dedicate his growing skills to
a vegetable plot he grew an amaz-
ingly beautiful garden in the spring
and fall. His fall garden consisted of
more than mustard, turnips and sweet
potatoes. He challenged himself by
growing broccoli, brussels sprouts,
cauliflower and even celery in his
Cedar Key garden.
Growing up eating fresh vegetables
I realize that store bought vegetables
although good are not the same as
just picked fresh from the garden
vegetables.
Last week John washed several Just
Right Turnips and I cooked only the
turnip roots. After slicing them up I
cooked them in ham broth until they
were just barely tender. They were so

Live Nativity draws
On December 14, 15 and 16, 2007,
more than 330 vehicles traveled to
the Hicks/Robertson farm to see the
Live Nativity, which recreates the
birth of Jesus,
complete with
live animals
and a cast
of over 20
people por-
traying shep-
herds, Mary
and Joseph,
shopkeepers,
wise men and
angels.
This marks
the fourth year
of this production which is brought
to you by the Jennings Lake Seventh
Day Adventist Church located be-
tween Trenton and Bell, Florida.
The church would like to thank the
Hicks and Robertson family for host-
ing this event, and would also like to


good and as sweet as could be.
John, like my father, is challenging
himself by growing a few vegetables
that are not commonly grown here
in the deep south like asparagus. He
planted the crowns a couple years
ago and this spring we should have
plenty for the two of us to eat.
We have some beautiful cabbage
that are almost ready to harvest and I
plan to use the following recipe when
the cabbage are ready.



1 cup cubed ham.
3 cups water
1 green cabbage
1 pound small new potatoes or me-
dium size new potatoes cubed
3 fresh carrots sliced
1/4 onion, chopped
Wash the ham and place in pot with
about a tablespoon of oil in the bot-
tom. Cook slowly over medium heat
until browned slightly. Add the water
and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat
and cook for about 30 minutes. Put a
lid on the pot so broth doesn't cook
down too much. Add potatoes, on-
ion and carrots to the pot and cook
for five minutes or until just bareley
tender then add cabbage. If the cab-
bage has a lot of good outside dark
green leaves cook them a little longer
before adding the light green inside
leaves. Check seasoning, add black
pepper and salt or seasoning salt to
taste. Cook all until just tender. Serve
with favorite meat and homemade
corn bread.
Mmm, Mmm, Good!

hundreds of people
thank all who provided the live ani-
mals, as they were a huge hit, espe-
cially with the children.
Special thanks also to all who
turned out to
help with the
building and
staffing and tak-
ing down of the
buildings, and
all who braved
the weather
and donned the
S costumes, your
efforts were ap-
preciated great-
ly.
The dates for.
next year's Live Nativity have been
set, and they are December 12, 13,
and 14, 2008.
Hope to see you there, just follow
the stars!
May God Bless you and your fam-
ily during the upcoming year!

Pine tree growers: Beware of Cogon Grass


The Florida Division of Forestry
warns that Cogon grass (Imperata
cylindrica) is an invasive, non-native
grass which occurs in Florida and
several other southeastern states.
A pest in 73 countries, and consid-
ered to be one of the "Top 10 Worst
Weeds in the World", cogon grass af-
fects pine productivity and survival,
wildlife habitat, recreation, native
plants, fire behavior, site manage-
ment costs and more.
Cogon grass is a tall (2-5 ft.) peren-
nial grass with bright yellowy-green
foliage. The leaf blades have a mid-
vein which is clearly offset to one
side, and serrated (toothed) edges.
The rhizomes are hard, scaly, and
cream-colored with sharply pointed
tips. The seed head is fuzzy, white,
and plume-like (see images above).
Cogon grass is found on roadsides,


mining sites, borrow pits, and other
areas of soil disturbance, and is able
to invade moist to dry upland pine
sites.
Following initial invasion, cogon
grass often forms dense, field-like
monocultures. Cogon grass spreads


readily on disturbed sites and through
movement of soil contaminated with
small pieces of rhizome or seed (often
due to site disturbance in timber har-
vest, site preparation, road grading,
use of contaminated fill dirt, etc.).
Cogon grass infestations can re-
duce pine survival and growth, and
in fire situations, may result in com-
plete mortality of overstory trees due
to flammable oils in the grass blades
raising the intensity and severity of
prescribed bums.
Over time cogon grass may signifi-
cantly impact management and pro-
ductivity of pines on infested sites.
For more local information on Co-
gon grass, call Gilchrist County Ex-
tension Agent Marvin-Weaver at 463-
3174 or visit the Florida Division of
Forestry website at: www.fl-dof.com
to learn more information.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

INFORMATION
This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible
Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn
income.
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyone in possession of assets on January I who has either
a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed
agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who
lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal
property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's
.office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has
determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the
form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way,
the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your
obligation to file.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible
Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the
Property Appraiser's Office.
Q. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a
return?
A. Yes,.if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out
items I through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation of
why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and
rental units have some assets to report even if it is only supplies,
rented equipment or household goods.
Q. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return?
A. Yes, if you were not in business on January I of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q.. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April I we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your,
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.
Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year -
Who is responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is
insufficient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on
January I would be responsible for the difference. Most title
companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or
closing agent to avoid problems in this area.

Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
,A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or
not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must
be filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes. since rental activity is of an income producing nature,
you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is
required for unreported properly, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

and from there, the game became a
routing of Aucilla. Aucilla's five man
team just couldn't keep up with the
Bulldogs. Joel Elliot, Justin Fowler,
Austin Upshaw and James Thomas
all had a great game. A surprise was

Bulldogs sweep Cedar
Key on December 17
By Sean Boutwell
With the two junior varsity teams
winning already earlier in the day, the
stage was set for Bell's varsity teams
to sweep the Cedar Key Sharks. The
girls had a big advantage right off the
bat. Bell's twelve-girl team was up
against Cedar Key's five-girl team.
The Lady Bulldogs were fired up
in this game as they led from the tip-
off. Samantha Williams would
go on to have one of the best nights
of her season finishing with 22 points;
2 rebounds, and 8 steals. In the first
quarter the Bulldogs routed the Lady
Sharks 19-4. Cedar Key's defense
improved as the game went on but
their offense continued to struggle.
The Lady Bulldogs won this game
43-25.
The varsity boys followed up and
found the same success as the girls.
The dynamic duo of Joel Elliott and
James Thomas continued to do what
they have done all season, score and
score alot. They led the Bulldogs to a
half time lead of 43-19. The Bulldogs
stepped up their game on defense and
accounted for 6 blocked shots.
TJ Friar came into the second half
and showed great hustle making a
very nice lay-up and getting three
steals on defense. Jady fired up the
crowd again by getting another block
that sent the ball into the stands.
The best statistic of the night for
the Bulldogs was that every player
scored; it was the first time that has
happened all season. The starters had
an opportunity to rest most of the sec-
ond half as younger less experienced
players got some playing time. Joel
and James had enough statistics to be
the players of the game. Joel had 15
points and two assists. Big James fin-
ished with 12 points and 13 rebounds.
The Bulldogs won it and secured the
sweep with the score of 76-44.

FWC announces the 2008-2009 Manatee Decal Art
Contest for middle and high school students


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
announces its 17th Annual Manatee
Decal Art Contest and invites middle
and high school art students to sub-
mit their manatee artwork for consid-
| eration.
Students must work through their
school's art teacher to submit artwork
. since only five art entries are allowed
, per school.
Sales from the manatee decals pro-
vide funds for the state's manatee
protection program. Decals are avail-
able at county tax collectors' offices
in Florida with a donation of $5 or
more to the Save the Manatee Trust
Fund. Money from the sale of these
'decals supports manatee protection
efforts, such as rehabilitation, res-
cue, research, enforcement and pub-
lic education. In June, 15,000 decals
with artwork provided by Coral Reef
Senior High School student Natasha
Thornton were distributed statewide
, for sale until June of 2008.
Requirements for the Manatee De-
cal Art Contest are as follows:All en-
tries must be the sole original work
of the artist. Student artists must at-
tend a Florida public, private or home
school for middle or high school.


Climate change and
gardening
What does global warming mean tc
I gardeners? If we accept the reason-
ing of the great majority of scientific
'thinkers, we are already in the throes
'of this phenomenon. It would be wise
for gardeners to give it some thought.
Florida's residential gardeners will be
vulnerable to the long term effects oi
climate changes. Large agricultural
and farming segments of the econo-
my will probably get advice and help
from state agencies, but what about
-those of us who garden as a hobby,
who have spent much money on our
existing plantings and appreciate the
beauty and increased value they bring
to our properties? How .should we
".plan? How can we keep our plants
and not add to global warming, and
perhaps even help promote solutions
to global warming at the same time?
"We might operate under the phy-
, sician's code of "First, do no harm".
If this were followed universally, we
might at least maintain the status quo,
'.' and rely on reductions in fossil fuel
use for transportation and energy to
save us. Gardeners might be justi-
fied in doing that, as it wasn't hobby
,- gardening that caused the problems
we face. However, there are other
avenues we can take, and even home
gardeners can help turn global warm-
y ing around. No matter who caused
it or how it was caused; itwil'l affect
us all, so perhaps we can be a part of
the solution.
Trees. Cherish them if you have
I them, plant them if you don't. Shade
' trees can reduce energy consumption

i also absorb and store carbon dioxide
(C02), the gas primarily responsible
, for global warming. One tree can re-
;, move a ton of C02 from the atmo-
sphere in its lifetime.

their use. They use fossil fuels and

Students must submit their artwork
through their school or art teacher.
Art teachers should submit no more
than five entries per school. The de-
signs should be in full color in a me-
dium of the artist's choice and may
be realistic or abstract as long as the
image depicts a recognizable mana-
tee. The artwork image and page size
should be no larger than 8.5" x 11"
with the image centered. (Note: Do
NOT add any text or captions to the
artwork). Mount artwork on art board
with a protective paper covering. (No
frames, glass coverings or dry mount-
ing).
Design entries will be accepted
only if postmarked on or before Janu-
ary 31, 2008.
On February 14, 2008, FWC staff
will judge all qualified entries. The-
winning design will be used to create
a final decal for distribution to county
tax offices in July.
To see previous manatee decals,
please visit FWC's Web site at www.

ing by hand is much kinder to the
environment. Just replacing some of
your lawn with mulched shrubbery
beds and native wildflower gardens
will cut down on lawn mower C02
c emissions as well as noise pollution;
and also provide some wonderful ex-
ercise.
Plant only natives in new plantings.
Native plants are our best weapon in
precluding invasive non-native plant
intrusions. Natives usually need
less water and fertilizer than exotic
(non-native) plants. Florida natives
can usually withstand heat and water
' shortages better than exotic plants.
Heavier downpours and more intense
storms associated with global warm-
9 ing will lead to flooding in some vul-
nerable areas, but wider drought and
heat wave conditions may well lead
to more residential yard-watering re-
strictions in others. As a side benefit,
native plants afford the best food for
native wildlife and birds. Ask your
local nursery if you have questions as
to whether a plant is native to Florida.
There are many good books avail-
able, see below for some sources.
Rain barrels and wise watering.
It's time to consider some simple,
old fashioned ways to conserve wa-
ter, as well as new ways. Rain bar-
rels are becoming more widespread,
as householders are discovering the
joys of always having a guilt-free
water supply on hand. If roof water
f isn't captured, as in rain barrels, it
may go to waste as regards your wa-
tering needs. There are very decora-
tive barrels on the market, and treat-
ment to preclude mosquito breeding
in them is easy. Water mornings
and evenings only, as mid-day water-
ing results in much evaporation loss,
and use drip irrigation for the same
reason. Mulching is an important
component of water conservation for
plantings. Your local nursery will
have many choices of materials for
mulch, however a good home grown
one is grass clippings and raked

Trenton High Engineering Academy students create

"seige engines"


The year is 1312 AD. This period
in medieval history is often times de-
scribed as the "Age of Edged Weap-
ons." This is due to the fact that
much of the warfare of the era was
done close-in, hand-to-hand combat
utilizing swords, lances, spears and
battle-axes. Archers (English long-
bowmen) and French crossbowmen
were taking a devastating toll on the
unprotected human combatants on
the battlefield. But the most feared
weapon of the era was the "siege en-
gine" or what is known today as the
Trebuchet.
Engineering Academy students at
Trenton High School were in the ser-
vice of the King Edward-III of Eng-
land (at this point in time) as design-
ers of the King's most feared weapon,
the siege engine. The students be-
came more commonly known as the
king's own siege-engineers. At this
point in history, the English army
was advancing into France and has
just destroyed much of the French
army at the Battle of Crecy, in Au-
gust of 1346. The student's were
tasked to design and construct ma-
chines capable of laying siege to the
French castles and fortifications that
the English army may encounter as it
advanced on to Paris.
The first-year Engineering students
involved in the project designed and
constructed 1/10th scale models of
their respective machines. The upper
level Engineering students involved,
constructed much larger scale work-
ing models. But, none the less, the
process was the same. Working in
teams, they ran preliminary projectile
motion calculations for their initial
designs. The students then verified
the mathematical modeling using
simulator software. From there it
was time to start into the actual de-
sign phase.


leaves, which also saves gas in refuse
collectingand space in landfills. One
most important word on mulching
would be advising Florida gardeners
to refrain from using cypress mulch,
and complain loudly to garden cen-
ters that sell it that use of it is deplet-
ing Florida's precious cypress trees,
and claims of distributors of cypress
mulch that it is a by-product of other
uses for cypress wood is just not true.
We can also save energy and refuse
to contribute to global warming by
using solar and compact fluorescent
garden lighting, and timers to-turn off
that lighting when not needed. The
cumulative effect of many gardeners
using the above simple methods can'
make a difference.
' A healthy eiviroffiment rfieans bet- "'
ter conditions for Florida's fish and
wildlife, and more hope for their con-
servation and protection. The Florida
Wildlife Federation is committed to
encouraging individual Floridians to
aid in the battle against global warm-
ing. The Federation's President,
Manley K. Fuller, III, has recently
been appointed to serve on Gover-
nor Charlie Crist's Action Team on
Energy and Climate Change, a newly
formed task force of 21 members
charged with making recommenda-
tions in a timely manner for upcom-
ing rulings regarding Florida's role in
global warming.

Using AutoCAD software, they
produced working drawings needed
for the construction of the machines. -
Upon completion of the construction
and testing phase we had 16 scale
models of varying designs capable
of throwing a projectile using noth-
ing more than gravity and counter-
weights (simple lever machines and
mechanical advantage).
In addition to the smaller work-
ing prototypes, we had three very
large working models each capable
of throwing a one-pound projectile

more than gravity and 100 pounds of
counterweight.
All of the student designs and ma-


chines proved to be highly effective in
throwing large projectiles over a long
range. This just goes to show why
these "siege engines" were employed
in battle for over 1,000 years! As the
students learned during the course of
the project, the true engineer is noth-
ing more than a problem solver. Faced
with the unknown, they are forced to
make assumptions, use math, physics
and all the sciences available to them
to test their hypothesis. In addition,
as the students quickly found out, a
solid understanding of history proved
to be invaluable to them on this par-
ticular project. They each designed
and constructed prototypes just as en-
gineers do everyday. At the comple-


tion of the project each student had
experienced first hand the "design
cycle" used by engineers everywhere
without ever realizing it.
Welcome to a day in the lifb of a
Trenton High School Engineering
Academy student! If this sounds like
something that might interest you
and you're a student in the Gilchrist
County school system, please feel free
to contact Mr. Don Barselou (Acade-
my Director) at Trenton High School
or send him a e-mail at barseloud@

Congratulations Class on a great
job of building the seige engines.

Gilchrist County

Woman's Club Jews


The last meeting of 2007 of the
Gilchrist County Woman's Club was
held December 11 at the meeting
house.
It was a Christmas
Social hosted by Fran-
ces Moran, Sharon
Bard and Karen Phil-
man They did it all
"six-handedly." (Just
the three of them) and
it was wonderful.
Before the meal, the
group was entertained
by a husband and wife
team Mr. and Mrs. Chris DeCubellis.
The meal was catered by a Taste of
Heaven and was a complete turkey
dinner with dessert provided by the
members. Everyone was "stuffed" as
the food was great!
Following the meal a silent auc-


tion was held on things donated by
the members. The competition was
fierce but in the end everyone was
happy with their acquisitions.
Next month the meet-
SO"ing will be on January
0 0 10 and will be hosted
by the Arts and Crafts
Committee. Stephanie
Metts, chairperson of
the committee, encour-
Sages all members to
bring their items to be
judged and shared to
this meeting. Of more
than 80 categories everyone should
have an entry.
Please contact Stephanie at Suwan-
nee Valley Quilt Shoppe if you have
questions at 463-3842.

Spotted seatrout fishing
season to reopen
The recreational harvest season for
spotted seatrout will reopen in the
southern half of Florida on January

closed since November 1st in Florida
Atlantic Coast waters south of the
Flagler-Volusia counties line and in
Gulf Coast waters south of a line run-
ning due west from the westernmost
point of Fred Howard Park Cause-
way, which is about 1.17 miles south
of the Pinellas/Pasco counties line.
This two-month closure occurs each
year to help maintain the abundance
of spotted seatrout.
The maximum daily bag limit, for
spotted seatrout in these areas is four
fish per person. In all Florida waters
north and west of these areas, the dai-
ly limit is five fish per person.
The stateWide slot limit for spotted
seatrout is 15-20 inches total length.
However, anglers may keep one spot-
ted seatrout. larger than 20 inches as
part of the daily bag limits.
Spotted seatrout may not be har-
vested by using any multiple hooks
with live or dead natural bait, and
snagging or snatch hooking spotted
seatrout is not allowed. Spotted seat-
rout may be taken only with hook,
line gear and cast nets and must be
landed in a whole condition.
The harvest of spotted seatrout will


close during the month of February
in northeast and northwest Florida
waters.


Three lost hunters in
Osceola National
Forest found on
Christmas Day
Three lost hunters received a great
Christmas present from the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) when they were
found in the woods Tuesday night.
The three Lake City hunters, Marty
Barfus, 37, Timothy Barfus, 34, and
Matthew Barfus, 6, had gone small
game hunting at about 11 a.m. They
called family members around 4 p.m.
to let them know they were lost in
Otter Bay Swamp in the Osceola Na-
tional Forest and needed help.
Family members searched the area
until it began getting dark, and then
called the Columbia County Sheriff's
Office whose officers arrived at the
scene and found the hunters' vehicle.
The sheriff's office called the FWC
for assistance in locating the three
people. Units from the U.S. Forest
Service (USFS) and Baker Correc-
tional K-9 were also called to help.
FWC Officer Billy Giles and his
K-9 partner, Parker, along with USFS
Agent Jimmy Ellis, located a jacket in
the vehicle of the lost hunters to use
as a scent item. Parker began tracking
the three missing people.
According to FWC Lt. Scott Kihei,
other FWC officers began searching
by truck and on ATVs. The FWC he-
licopter was also called into service.
The conditions. Christmas night
were less than perfect for flying the
helicopter, said FWC Pilot Joe John-
ston.
"It was a drizzly night with a cloud
cover at 600 feet. However, the loca-
tion we were given was only about
10 miles from the airport and in
very familiar territory to me, so we
launched," Johnston said.

cement

the facts


"One FWC officer on the ground
told me to concentrate north of his
location and in just a few minutes, I
was able to pick up a faint glow about
a mile away with my night vision
goggles (NVG)," Johnston said.
FWC Lt. Steve Farmer was oper-
ating the Forward Looking Infrared
(FLIR) unit on the helicopter and
directed Johnston to a "huge black-
hot" heat source. The FLIR detects
extremely subtle temperature chang-
es and doesn't care if it's midday or
midnight. It creates an image based
on heat. The FLIR also has a laser
that can be directed at the ground to
assist in locating a specific site.
"I flew to the spot and Steve
could then see three people around
a small fire. Steve even told me it
looked like two men and a boy,"
Johnston said. "With the wind and
low cloud cover, it was nearly impos-
sible to stay close enough to the fire
to see it with the NVGs and direct of-
ficers on foot, but with the FLIR, I set
up a wide orbit and let Steve keep the
laser on the campfire."
Johnston directed the officers on
the ground to the laser, with instruc-
tions to shine their flashlights up into
the trees.
"Officers Giles, Ellis and Parker


were within a quarter mile of the
three lost hunters and had been call-
ing to them," Kihei said. "The brush
was extremely thick and made ma-
neuvering difficult. However, with
the additional assistance from the
helicopter, the officers quickly made
contact with the trio."
"As soon as they made contact, we
were on course back to the airport,"
Johnston said. "However, about two
minutes into our return flight, the
officers requested our assistance
to help them get back out of the
woods. We turned around and did the
whole thing in reverse. It's amazing
how disoriented a person can become
in a terribly overgrown area under an
overcast sky."
The three lost hunters, along with
the two officers and K-9, made it out
of the swamp to waiting family and
FWC officers.
"This is a great example of team-
work," Kihei said.
Johnston echoed Kihei's state-
ment.
"The officers on the ground, Work-
ing in conjunction with the helicop-
ter's FLIR and NVGs, are a toigh
combination to beat during a search
and rescue," Johnston said. "If you're
lost, we will find you."

This Flower Garden quilt is going to the State Fair in Tampa. It has
been sold but the lady is allowing us to put it in the fair.


This is a star pattern using many colors. It is going to the State Fair.
It is made by Pat Heubusch.


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, December 20th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Everyone
was busy with Christmas next week
and we will be putting crafts away
and getting ready for the new year.
We are half-full on the bus trip to the
fair February 12th and we will soon
be filling up, if you want to go call
493-2801 and we will put you down.
It will be a fun trip, the cost is $22.00
per person. We leave Chiefland at 7
a.m. and Williston at 7:30 a.m. We
eat breakfast at Wildwood and we get
to the fair about 10:45 a.m. We leave
at 4:30 p.m. and get home around 7
p.m. This trip is on a Tuesday.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-


W


day and got so much done. The
boys who came out help me with
things I can't do anymore like weed-
ing around the gazebo, cleaning the
floors, and much more. We have now
worked 1000 boys since April 24,
1996. Thanks Lancaster.
We have been given two antique
sewing machines and hope we can
soon find out how old they are. They
will be put up for people to see.
Lunch was good with dressing and
chicken, gravy, soybeans, salad, cab-
bage, lots of desserts, meatballs, rice?
and much more.
Sixteen were present.

hope to put three quilts in the frames
so quilting can be started.
We will start our Pickin' On The
Porch on January 5 with Ray Franks
and the Can't Hardly Play Boys. It
will be a great start to this year. Come
out and have a great time with us.
Greg and six boys were out
Wednesday. We have been given
some antique sewing machines and
the boys built a frame for one of them.


We hope to find something out about
them, they were made by Singer and
one has four needles.
Lunch was enjoyed with rice mix-
ture, corn fritters, green beans and
lots of desserts and great fellowship.

'Twas December 19th and all
through the place, twenty-two Joy-
ful Hearts had a smile on their face.
Quilting and crafting were all laid to
rest, while we got ready to party, a
thing we do best.
The tables were all laden with
goodies so yummy, that we knew
we'd all leave with a very full tum-
my. Cards and gifts were exchanged
with great love, to each dear friend
who's a gift from above.
Fun finger foods, no meat and 'tad-
ers, Elaine said grace, Kathy said Go
Gators. Christmas music was play-
ing 'midst decorations galore. We
were laughing and eating, could one
ask for more?


'Twas too soon all over and all you
could hear, was Merry Christmas,
I love you. I'll see you next year.
January second we'll all meet back
here, to quilt and to craft and to plan
a new year.
In the meantime stay well and stay
out of danger, and remember the gift
of the Babe in a manger. It's the rea-
son for the season and a gift from
above, sent by our Father because of
His love.
So treasure that gift so precious and
dear, keep the joy of His birth in your
heart through the year. Remember
the reason for His wondrous birth, to
bring light to the darkness and peace
to the earth.


Happy flew gear to Ail!

Construction continues on EOC facility


Remember our troops


An installation team from Wolfe Plumbing is shown constructing the pre-slab plumbing for restrooms in
the new EOC facility.

Longtime educator Haven Hospice offers
passes away free information sessions


By the Republican Executive
Committee of Gilchrist County
The Republican Executive Com-
mittee of Gilchrist County is at-
tempting to establish a current list
of all Gilchrist County residents,
who served in any branch of the U.S.
Armed Services between January
2006 and present.
The list will be used for our prayer
remembrance list and for a plaque
that will be presented to the county
during our Stars of Freedom Ban-
quet. A date for the banquet has not,
been determined.
The plague will honor our fam-
ily and friends who have served our
country in the military and are the
Real Stars of Freedom.
The list below is incomplete, we
don't have all of the names and we
need your help to fill in the blanks.
We would like the present rank,
branch of military service, if the
person served in a combat zone and
present mailing address (all mailing
addresses will be kept confidential)
so that we can contact these brave
souls and personally thank them.
Please take the time to scan the
list and if you can help us call Ken
Palm at 352-463-0089 or Dr. Geneva
Comwell at 352-463-1473.
Thank you very much for your
help and Remember to Pray for our
Troops!
