The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion heard a request from Chairman
Tommy Langford last week that the
Supervisor of Elections Office needs
additional space for training of poll
workers and election concerns during
the 2008 General Election year.
Supervisor of Elections Connie
Sanchez asked for the office space
that is currently being used by the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Com-
merce, which is connected to the
Commissioners Meeting Room. This
office space features several small of-
fices, a conference room and a lim-
ited parking area on the south end of
the building.
The board asked if the Supervisor
of Elections was to move to the of-
fice space owned by the county what
would fill the space where the consti-
tutional office is now located inside
the Gilchrist County Courthouse. The
board was told that this space would
be used for storage.
Gilchrist County recently pur-
chased the property along with two
houses that are located east of the
comer of SE First Street along State
Road 26. Gilchrist County Depart-
ment of Public Safety and Emergen-
cy Management currently occupies
the former residence of Mr. and Mrs.
C. C. Wilkerson.
The County Commissioners dis-
cussed the additional space that
would be available when the Emer-
gency Operations Center is complet-
ed north of Bell.

Trenton Ti


By Carrie A. Mizell
After 38 years of coaching, most
recently as head football coach at
Trenton Middle High School, Ed
Janes has announced his retirement
plans, saying he wants more time to
spend with his grandchildren, Haley
and Cole Janes.
"Coach Janes is stepping down as
head football coach," Trenton Middle
High School Principal Lynette Lang-
ford confirmed last Wednesday. "The
search is now on for a new football
coach."
Langford said during Janes' tenure
as Trenton Tigers football coach she
never had one parent call. and com-
plain about the program, she also
praised Janes for his fairness with
both football players and P.E. stu-
dents.
Janes accepted the coaching po-
sition at Trenton in 2004. Before
coming to Trenton, Janes was head
football coach of the Wayne County
High School Yellow Jackets in Jesup,
Georgia.
According to Janes' son Blair
Janes, his father's coaching career
highlights include tenures at Gaines-
ville High School, Newberry High
School, Santa Fe High School and
Westport High School. What began
as an assistant coaching position at
Gainesville High.School under Coach
Jim Niblack peaked in 1992 when

The board then identified and
called for the county space commit-
tee to meet and further discuss the
needs of the constitutional officers in
the courthouse. County Administrator
Ron McQueen was assigned to meet
with the space committee and report
back to the board in a later meeting.
"We are just too packed in this lit-
tle 568 square foot room," Sanchez
said on Tuesday. "With as many can-
didates as we have coming into the
office it's just got to be bigger than
this."
According to Sanchez, one candi-
date came into the office and com-
mented on his discomfort over ask-
ing questions and speaking openly in
such a confined area.

;ers football


Ed Janes
Janes led the Newberry Panthers to
the state championship game where
they endured a 14-13 loss. Other
highlights include a 1998 Gainesville
High School victory over Buchholz
High School. It was the first time the
Hurricanes defeated the Bobcats in
18 years, Janes said.
Throughout his coaching career,
Janes had the opportunity to coach
talented athletes like Ricky Nat-
tiel, a standout from Newberry High
School, who went on to play as a wide
receiver at the University of Florida
before playing six NFL seasons,
Joe Henley a GHS linebacker, who
played at Southern Miss and Clinton
Portis a GHS star who played college
football at the University of Miami
and is now playing his sixth season
for the Washington Redskins.
"He had done the big time, coach-
ing 5A and going to the state play-
offs before coming to Trenton," Blair
Janes said. "It was nice for him to
coach at a slower pace to .round out
his career."
Janes said that his father enjoyed
coaching the kids in Trenton and
often refers to them as the best kids
overall he's ever been around.
Four years ago Janes began build-
ing a unit of 12 Trenton seniors in-
cluding: Brett Rowland, Kyle Bon-
giovanni, Durell Henry, Jeff Delong,
Jamie Pope, Billy Owens, Kyle
Feather, Colby Perryman and Bran-
don Mathis. In 2007, these seniors
led the Trenton Tigers to the playoffs
and finished the regular season 6 and
4.
Senior Brett Rowland said that he
was not surprised to learn that Coach
Janes would be retiring and felt like

Oregano spelling leads to victory
Trenton seventh grader will travel to Tallahassee to compete in regional spelling bee


By Carrie A. Mizell
A smile slowly spread across the
face of 12-year-old Wyatt Bowden
after he correctly spelled the word
'oregano' and was declared winner
of the 2008 Gilchrist County School
District Spelling Bee last Wednes-
day.
The Trenton Middle School sev-
enth grader defeated Aida Valdes a
sixth grader at Bell Middle School in
the eighth round of the spelling bee
after she failed to spell the word 'tar-
iff' correctly.
Bowden and Valdes shared the
auditorium stage of Trenton Middle
High School with six other students
who won or placed second in spell-
ing bees held at their schools. Spell-
ing bee contestants were: John Gill
a Bell Elementary School fourth
grader, Taylor Sapp a Trenton Middle
School fifth grader, Matthew Harrell
a Bell Middle School seventh grader,
Taylor Drawdy a Bell Elementary
School fourth grader, Levi Sprague a
Trenton Middle School eighth grader
and Nathan Johnson a Trenton Mid-
dle School fifth grader.
Prior to the start of the competi-
tion, Spelling Bee Coordinator Ja-
net Bradley introduced judges Rick
Reed, principal of Bell Elementary
School, Nancy Rowe, reading coach
at Bell Middle High School and John
Price, social studies teacher at Tren-
ton Middle High School.
"We rotate the location of the spell-
ing bee and the judges each year,"
Bradley said.
Before taking the stage the spelling
bee contestants listened as Trenton
Middle High School Assistant Prin-
cipal Emily Carroll read the contest
rules aloud. Each student then drew
a number from a basket to determine
the order in which they would be
called to the microphone. The first
word given to each student was writ-
ten on the back of the number they
selected to help combat nervous jit-
ters during the first round of the spell-
ing bee. Words spelled during the first
round included: character, manicure,
tragic, biblical, canasta, angelic, iro-

ents and antsy students remained si-

first four students Gill, Sapp, Harrell
and Drawdy misspelled the words
they were given. Valdes spelled the
word 'lilac' correctly followed by


Sprague who spelled 'paradox' cor-
rectly and Johnson who spelled 'buf-
falo' correctly. Bowden then closed
out the second round by spelling the
word 'nasal' correctly.
Valdes opened the third round by
spelling the word 'magnolia' cor-
rectly. Harrell and Drawdy were then


eliminated from the spelling bee af-
ter misspelling their words. Bowden
moved on from the third round after

Water shortage order calls for mandatory


water restrictions beginning April 7


By Carrie A. Mizell
Mandatory water use restrictions
will become effective on April 7
throughout the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District following
the SRWMD governing board's issu-
ance of its first-ever Phase II Water
Shortage Order last Tuesday.
After careful consideration of the
drought indicators, condition levels,
district data and staff recommenda-
tions SRWMD Executive Director
Jerry Scarborough determined that
the water shortage order is neces-
sary.
Residential, commercial, industrial
and agricultural restrictions and some
exemptions are included in the water
shortage order.
The unprecedented action was
taken in response to extremely low
groundwater levels experienced
throughout the district during the
current drought, coupled with predic-
tions that the drought will intensify
over the next several months.
The district is suffering its eighth
driest 24-month period since 1932,
with, a rainfall deficit of 28.7 inches.
Forty-nine wells set new December
lows and 17 wells set new historic
lows. Twenty-three emergency per-
mits for dry wells were issued in
December, for a total of 157 issued
between April 1 and December 31,
2007.
Although recent heavy rains in
Georgia have led to slight increases
in some local river levels, the Suwan-
nee River at Branford is still below
the 10th percentile and the Santa Fe
River at near Fort White is about an
inch below its former historic low.
The U.S. Seasonal Drought Out-
look indicates that further drought
development is likely in the district
through March 2008.
Between now andApril 7, SRWMD


staff will meet with city and county
officials to coordinate implementa-
tion and enforcement guidelines.
They also will meet with commercial
and industrial interests to explain the
order and to solicit input, as they did
with agricultural- producers in late
December.
"Even before the mandatory restric-
tions go into effect, we urge all citi-
zens to continue to voluntarily con-


serve water," said David Still, deputy
executive director at SRWMD.
Citizens are asked to employ water
conservation measures by turning off
water while brushing teeth or shav-
ing, limit toilet flushing and shower
for no more than five minutes. In the
kitchen, citizens are asked to run the
dishwasher only when there is a full
load. When washing dishes by hand,
water should not be left running. In


general, citizens are told to check
water meters and bills to track house-
hold water usage. Yards should only
be watered before 10 a.m. or after 4
p.m. to reduce water evaporation.
Agriculture uses will also be re-
stricted. Wastewater irrigation and
low pressure/low volume irrigation.
systems will not be restricted. Over-

Fuel depot struck by lightning

A lightning strike at the Gilchrist County Road Department early Friday morning took out the fuel depot
and the phone lines.at the road department. According to Assistant Road Department Superintendent Bil-
ly Cannon, the fiel reader at the depot was down after the strike and had not been repaired as of Monday at
3 p.m. County employees driving county vehicles were instructed to use their Fuelman gas cards at Scaff's
Supermarket in Bell or the Texaco station in Trenton to pump diesel or gasoline into their vehicles.


Series of vandalism early Tuesday


By Carrie A. Mizell
Cows getting out and standing in
the middle of U.S. 129 on Monday
afternoon was the big news in Gil-
christ County prior to a string inci-
dents on the north end of the county
early Tuesday morning.
According to Chief Deputy Harvey
Montgomery, calls began coming in
to the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice around 5:33 a.m. A store man-

called 911 after finding glass along
the bottom left portion of the auto-
matic front door broken out.
"Probably a rock was thrown
through the door," Montgomery
said.
Investigators from the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office processed the
scene and estimated $2,000 worth of
damage to the door. Fingerprints were
obtained, but Montgomery pointed
out that due to the heavy traffic going
in and out of the supermarket it is not
likely that fingerprints will lead to the
person who broke into the store.
According to Montgomery, the
store's alarm system did not go off.
He also said that nothing was report-
ed stolen from the store.
By 6:30 a.m. dispatchers at the
Sheriff's Office were answering calls
related to flat tires from drivers run-
ning over nails along County Road
340 near Rock Bluff.
According to Montgomery, Cap-
tain Tony.Cruse's vehicle and a K-9
patrol car sustained flat tires while
responding to the call.

By mid-morning, Montgomery
said the Sheriff's Office had received
at least seven calls from motorists
who sustained flat tires.
Unfortunately, there is nothing the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office can


do other than tell motorists to con-
tact their insurance agencies to cover
damages.,
"I believe someone must have just
been mad with someone," Montgom-
ery said. "There were a lot of roofing
nails on the highway for just anyone
to go out and buy ... we are in the pro-
cess of checking with local builders
at this time."
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice is currently investigating both
incidents. Anyone with any informa-

Trenton Middle High School


honored as bronze medal winner


By Carrie A. Mizell
The mighty roar of the Trenton Ti-
gers has been recognized nationally.
U.S. News & World Report, a na-
tional news magazine, listed Trenton
Middle High School in its ranking of
outstanding high schools throughout
the nation, designating it a bronze
medal school.
Trenton Middle High School was
among 1,600 public high schools
to receive a Gold, Silver, or Bronze
medal ranking in the survey, which
analyzed academic and enrollment
data from the 2005-2006 school
year in 18,000 public high schools
throughout the country.
According to Trenton Middle High
School Principal Lynnette Langford,
the survey measured state standard-
ized test scores in reading and math
along with the number and perfor-


mance of subgroups like
minorities and economi-
cally disadvantaged stu-
dents who attend public
high schools.
"It's not that we ex-
pect state recognition, but
- we feel like the expecta-
tions of the community
are high," Langford said.
"This is the first time the school has
been recognized nationally ... it's be-
cause of the teachers and kids."
Langford said she announced the
bronze medal ranking to teachers at
a faculty meeting last week and they
were very surprised, as she had been,
because the faculty and administra-
tion had no idea the school was even
being looked at.
"This has raised the bar for us,"
Langford said.

Proposed County Team Sports Recreation Budget
At the request of several Gilchrist County citizens, the Gilchrist County
Journal obtained the following proposed county team sports recreation
budget. This budget is currently being considered by the Gilchrist County
Board of County Commissioners and could be approved if the commission-
ers decide to take over control of recreation in Gilchrist County in 2008.

To be ranked in the top
100, schools had to score
high in factors that affect
students' readiness for
college. Langford said
that after researching the
top 100 schools she noted
that most of the gold med-
al schools offer advanced
placement courses, which
is not feasible for a school as small
as Trenton Middle High School. In-
stead, Trenton offers dual enrollment
courses.
According to the magazine's web-
site, the review was conducted by
analysts from School Evaluation Ser-
vices.

I received a letter that was submit-
ted for publication by an anonymous
writer earlier this week. The author
struggled to point out that they felt
the yard and garage sales held on
public property in Bell were fine and
the people involved had the right to
do what they wanted to and it was
good for business in Bell.
I have heard in public meetings that
the crowds that are drawn to these
weekend sales are quite entertaining.
People that live in the country are
often looking for something to do on
the weekend. I assume that driving to
Bell to browse through the yard and
garage sales in front of the school is
better than sitting at home.
The history involving yard and ga-
rage sales on public right-of-way in
the Town of Bell reads like a continu-
ing chapter. The Bell Town Coun-
cil has tried to deal with this in the

The strong scent of dust tickled my
nose earlier this week as my mom
and I dove into the tedious task of
sorting over 25 years worth of office
supplies.
Several times I lost concentration
as I stumbled upon items like slightly
discolored glitter still bearing the
unmistakable handwritten price my
grandfather, J. Min Ayers, put on it
years ago.
Some would consider the glitter
and other items like the Common
Sense Traveler's Expense Book I
found as relics of days gone by. Like
my grandfather was fond of wear-
ing, the man on the book is clad in a
button down dress shirt and pleated
pants. Proper work attire for their day
I suppose. Relics...no, I wouldn't say'
so. I choose to think of these items as
seasoned, but far from forgotten.
As if it were yesterday, I can still
see my Pepa sitting at his desk and
typing away at his typewriter well af-
ter 5 p.m. With a coke nearby, Pepa
would sometimes peak up from what
he was focused on and crack a smile
as my dad flew by pushing J and
I around the office on the dolly. As
kids, we knew the old dolly as a con-
traption used for hauling cartons of
paper during business hours and for
fun rides after the closed sign went
up.
Despite my often-sentimental
-.! A;4 ' 1 ,


heart, life is, as I learned my first se-
mester at Lake City Community Col-
lege, full of inevitable change. This
weekend my mom and I will see that
our attempts at sorting office supplies
were not made in vein as we take on
the task of renovating the front part
of the Journal. Phase one of the proj-
ect includes fresh paint on the walls,
new shelves, wood flooring and win-
dow treatments.
Don't panic, the front of the Jour-
nal will not be transformed into a
trendy coffee shop/bookstore. We're
way too traditional for that (and I
think my dad would almost certainly
fall out with a heart attack). Instead,
we will simply be giving the Journal
a much-needed facelift ... after near-
ly 30 years the office could use a little
cosmetic work done.
By February, Journal customers
should expect some new office sup-
plies and a comfortable seating area
out front that will be utilized dur-
ing interviews and will also accom-
modate customers who would like a
place to sit and discuss design ideas
for advertisements. The new seating
area will also be open to brides-to-be
who would like a comfortable place
to sit while flipping through our many
books of wedding invitations.
As in the past, the Gilchrist County
Journal will continue to age grace-
fully into the future.

past and when those involved in this
non-complying activity show up in
the public meeting, the council has
changed their mind to side with the
outspoken public and not taken ac-
tion to have the ordinance upheld.
In the Town Council January 2008
meeting, the board again took action
to have their attorney review the or-
dinance and amend it. The council
will review the amended ordinance
before they take further action in an
upcoming meeting.
I really don't have any interest
here, but I have seen the council
when they have failed to take action
in past meetings. If this use is a non-
complying activity involving their
town ordinances, I don't see where
the council has a choice. If the mu-
nicipality has an ordinance in place
and it is tested, the council must up
hold the ordinance and enforce it or
strike it from the law.

"I don't know of anyone
predicting a recession," White
House spokesman Tony Fratto told
reporters recently. Excuse me, Mr.
Fratto, but with all due respect such
a statement discredits even the antics
of an ostrich. Pronouncements of
an upcoming recession have been
numerous and are on the rise. I have
been forecasting a recession since
last August. Yet, voices far mightier
than mine have expounded on the
precept that a recession this year is
inevitable.
For example, David Rosenberg,
an economist with Merrill Lynch,
wrote to clients that the increase
in unemployment in December
confirmed that the economy was
entering a recession.
Goldman Sachs wrote to clients
that it expects the economy to drop
into recession this year. According
to Goldman's forecast, real gross
domestic product will contract by
1 percent on an annualized basis in
both the second and thirdd quarters,
resulting in an increase of 0.8 percent
all of 2008.
Perhaps Treasury Secretary Henry
Paulson should confer a bit more
frequently with his alma mater.
(Before being appointed Treasury
Secretary, Paulson was Chairman and
Chief Executive Officer of Goldman


Marriage Enrichment Seminar
PUBLIC INVITED


Are you searching for answers to strengthen your
marriage? Is the family being disrupted by too many
challenges to find the joy of a warm, happy home? What
are some ways to be a creative parent and help children
see the value in a strong, Christian home? This week, the
Trenton Church of Christ is hosting a four day seminar
examining the values and relationships needed in the
home today.
, Brent Hunter, from La Grange, Kentucky, will be our
speaker at this series of lectures on HOME
IMPROVEMENT. Brent Hunter served as an Associate
Professor of Communications and Marriage and Family
at Florida College in Temple Terrace, Florida from
1978-1997, and from 1997 until October 2004 served as
the college's Director of Development. Brent worked for
twenty-one years as the evangelist for the North Street
church in Tampa, recently completed three years
preaching regularlyfor the Zephyrhills congregation and
is now doing full time work for the Oldham Woods
congregation in La Grange, Ky. Brent combines a high
level of training as a minister, counselor, and teacher.
Since the early nineties, he has directed his efforts on
marriage and family enrichment with a focus towards
preventing problems. He believes that couples who
commit themselves to God and to each other, and who
are willing to learn to better communicate their love, can
experience the fulfillment and intimacy that God
intended for His people.
Wednesday (7:30pm) is the first in this series of
lessons examining "How To Give And Receive
Constructive Criticism." Criticism pulls people apart
and severs emotional bonds unless it is done correctly.

Does this augur doom for the stoc
market? No one can predict how th
markets will react going forward
However, there has not been an
time in recent history during whic
you could not find quality investment
opportunities capable of exceedin
the S&P 500's historical 11 percent
compounded average annual rate o
return. Therefore, while there ar
valid reasons as to why you should
or should not invest in stocks, overa
market performance is not one c
them.
With that said, let us move on t
looking for those salient investment
ideas. We will kick off the New Yea
with two possibilities. The first i
derived from Adeza, a company tha
was covered here last January for th
first time. Shortly thereafter, Adez
was acquired 'by Cytyc; a'compan
that I have covered for several year
:Cytyc, in turn was acquired .late las
year by Hologic.
Hologic's mammography product
include film-based and digital
systems, as well as the workstation
and computer-aided detectio
systems that interpret the images
Additional products include X-ra
and ultrasound bone densitometers t
detect and monitor osteoporosis, an
breast biopsy collection systems. B
merging with Cytyc, Hologic gaine
product lines that include tests t
screen for cervical cancer.
The difficulty with Hologic is tha
the intrinsic value of its shares i
equal to or less than the current shar
price of $68, in part because it i
still digesting the Cytyc acquisition
Nonetheless, the company shoul
produce earnings of $2.25 per shar
in fiscal 2008 and $3.00 in fiscal
2009. My 12 month target price o
the shares is $78 for a 15 percent gai
this calendar year.
The second company is Genentech

COOKING AND CARRYIN' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


Favorite book: "A Land Remem-
bered" by Patrick Smith
Your hero: Dad. He's been a good
role model and an inspiration in
my life.
Future plans: I'm getting married
on Oct. 18. Hopefully I'll raise a
family in Gilchrist County and
continue working at Farm Bureau
and having cows at the farm. I'm
gonna keep on loving the Gators
for certain.
What is something not many
people know about you? I'm very
fascinated with family history and
the history of Gilchrist County.
When Mr. George Jones or some-
one like that comes in I drive ev-
erybody crazy because we sit and
talk for hours about who lived here
and there.

Genentech has three separate billion
at dollar blockbuster drugs: Rituxan, for
rs non-Hodgkin's lymphoma; Avastin,
e for colorectal and non-small cell lung
is cancers; and Herceptin for breast
nd cancer. Lung cancer drug Tarceva
d rounds out the company's oncology
, portfolio.
A rejection by the FDA regarding
n the use of Avastin in treating breast
cancer was a setback. Overall market
conditions have also taken a toll.
' Nonetheless, the company continues
to portray excellent potential going
forward.
Third quarter earnings increased
21 percent to 64 cents per share.
Sales were up 22 percent to $2.905
billion. The intrinsic value of the
shares, using a discounted earnings
approach with a 16 percent earnings,
growth rate, is $102. The free cash
flow to the firm approach 'produces
an intrinsic value of $98. The shares
were recently trading at about $70.
My earnings estimate is $2.90 per
share for 2007 and $3.75 per share in
2008, with a 12-month target price on
the shares of $81.

To the citizens of
Gilchrist County,
First I want to thank the Bell
Recreation League, Gilchrist County
Recreational Association, and Su-
wannee Valley Leagues Inc., for all
their dedicated hard work they have
provided for the youth recreational
programs in our county. The children
of Gilchrist County have been greatly
blessed by your hard work.
I would ask that when you go to
the polls to vote that you would con-
sider the youth and the volunteers of
our county. Some of the volunteers
have ask the Board of County Com-
missioners for help by taking over
the recreational programs within the
county. The BOCC decided to put a
straw poll on the ballot and let the
voters decide if they want them to
move forward in that direction.


Last week we celebrated my moth-
er's birthday. Momma's all time fa-
vorite cake is fresh coconut cake. So
that's what I made her for her birth-
day.. You know.... .the classic South-
ern fresh coconut cake which is made
entirely from scratch. This cake was
traditionally made at Christmas and
Easter throughout the entire South.
This cake starts by draining a
fresh coconut, then cracking it open
and peeling the hunks of coconut
away from the shell. Next you have
to peel away the thin dark skin of the
coconut from the white meat of the
coconut. Yes sir ree buddy, it's a lot
of work, but oh man is it good.
My grandmother, Idell aka "Shan-
nie" thought nothing about making
one, when it came to baking a good
cake my grandmother didn't mess
around, nor did she spare the butter
o'r eggs, only the freshest ingredients
would do.
It is an investment of your time to
make this one. It took me about two
hours to make this cake from start to
finish. I speeded up the cooling time
on the three cake layers by lifting up
my wire cooling racks on coffee cups.
This high elevation allows more air-
flow under the racks, which really
speeds up the cooling time.
I used an ice pick and hammer
to puncture two of the three eyes of
the coconut to drain it. The larger eye
is easy because its soft but the other
two smaller eyes are pretty hard to
puncture. Next the coconut is placed
on a glass to drain. Sometimes you
have to shake the coconut a little to
get it to completely drain. You may
not have a full cup of coconut milk
in your coconut, if not you can just
use what you have. Sometimes when
I shake the coconuts and they don't
sound like they have much juice in
them I buy two. I often buy two be-
cause sometimes they have a small
crack and they can be sour. Through
the, years ,I've perfected pmy own
me,4odQfQracking open :he coconut.
The directions say to tap the little cut
groove around the coconut and this
will break it open. I find this never
works so I generally go outside to a
concrete slab and slam it down very
hard and it will crack it right open.



1 1/4 cups butter
2 cups sugar


This is only a straw poll to see if
the voting residents want the BOCC
to move forward in providing a coun-
ty recreation department funded,
maintained and operated by Gilchrist
County.
If the youth recreation referendum
passes, and the County Commission
decides to go forward with creation
of the recreation MSTU, the voters
will get another chance to vote on the
matter. It has been the County Com-
mission's intent from the very begin-
ning to not create this recreation tax
unless specifically approved by the
voters in a referendum, and if passed
by the voters to spend the revenue
only on youth recreational programs.
If the referendum passes, the
county attorney ( John McPherson)
outlined the procedure like this. The
County Commission must first adopt
an ordinance creating the MSTU and
setting forth the specific programs
and facilities that the tax revenue
could be used for. The County Com-
mission can make it clear in this or-
dinance that, as a matter of law, the
revenue collected from the tax would
only be spent on youth recreational
programs. In addition to establishing
what the money could be spent on,
and the maximum millage rate for the
tax, the ordinance would also provide
that it would not take effect unless
approved by the voters in a referen-
dum held in November of 2008. An
additional hurdle would be that the
tax would not be collected within any
of the municipalities within the coun-
ty unless the municipality passed an
ordinance consenting t t the tax.
It will be up to the voters to help
decide the future of the youth recre-
ational programs of Gilchrist County.
Let us all work together for the future
of our county
Thank You!
Tommy Langford
County Commissioner, District 4

Bell Elementary School was well represented at the 2007 Tri-County Relay For Life.


8 teams sign up for 2008 Relay For Life


By Carrie A. Mizell
A challenge will be issued to Bell
High School and Chiefland High
School to form a team and raise mon-
ey for the 2008 Tri-County Relay For
Life or be shamed by the Trenton
High School Beta Club.
According to Relay Chair, Anni
Egan, Trenton High School's Beta
Club is one of eight teams to com-
mit to the 2008 event, which honors
cancer survivors, pays tribute to the
lives lost to cancer and raises money
to help fight the disease.
The Relay For Life will be held
May 2-3 at Chiefland High School.
The location change from Chiefland
Elementary School where it had been
held in recent years is due to a need
for additional parking. Chiefland
High School also offers a more vis-
ible location along US 19.
Food, face painting and local bands
will kick off this year's event, which
will boast a carnival theme, Egan ex-
plained. The 2007 event raised over
$40,000 as 26 teams set up booths
with games for kids, walked laps

"I know this year will be a hard
year for people because the economy
is rough ... people can only do what
they can do," Egan said. "But so
many people have been helped in this
area through this event."
Planning is already underway for
this year's event. A meeting will be
held on Thursday, Jan. 31 at Capital
City Bank in Chiefland. Citizens in-
terested in joining the organizational
committee should arrive at 5:30 p.m.

By Cindy Jo Ayers
A proposed regional well field was
a topic of discussion at the January
7 meeting of the Trenton City Com-
mission.
Commissioners Tim Kinsey and
Randy Rutter- both expressed con-
cerns about the well field project.
During the meeting it was pointed
out that 10 miles of pipe line would
have to be laid before the city could
be connected to the well field. An-
other concern was that Trenton was
scheduled to use this well field only
when the project was in its second
phase, which could be 10 years from
now or longer. As one commissioner
pointed out the equipment would be
half worn out before Trenton would
benefit from it.
The well field project is a proposed
joint venture between the Fanning
Springs, Chiefland, Trenton and Lan-
caster Correctional. The Suwannee
River Water Management District is
ready to move forward with the proj-
ect.
"I don't think this is the best way
for Trenton tax dollars to be spent, I
don't want to mislead anyone about
this," Commissioner Rutter said.
Jered Ottenwess will be attending a
meeting about the regional well field
project and he promised to bring
back more information for the com-
mission.

The commissioners approved a
one day tree removal plan, which was


f proposed by Langston Tree Service.

(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits, Homestead property
owners will be able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and
not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous homestead; except, it this revision is approved
by the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the
previous homestead must have been relinquished in 2007. If the new homestead has a higher just
value than the previous one, the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a
lower just value, the amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not

correctly spelled words including:
Olympian, sputnik, tycoon, scampi,
leotard and pretzel.
Valdes incorrectly spelled the word
'dyslexia' and Bowden missed the
word 'adamant' during the seventh
round, which moved both competi-
tors on to the eighth round where
Bowden was ultimately declared the
winner of a competition that lasted
just over 15 minutes.
According to Bradley, Bowden


will now move on to compete in the
regional spelling bee, which will be
held on Feb. 16 in Tallahassee.
Bowden is the son of Tracy and
William Cowart. Bowden said on
Wednesday that he has never been to
Tallahassee and is looking forward to
making the trip to the state capital to
participate in the upcoming competi-
tion.
"I'm so happy about winning!"
Bowden said. "My mom kept making

Bell challenges Bronson
and splits with Melody
Christian
By Sean Boutwell
Tuesday, January 8
The Bulldogs JV Boys team started
off the night against Bronson. The
contest turned into a two-hour
marathon as both teams had trou-
ble with turning over the ball and
fouling. In the game tenth grader and
Varsity player T.J. Friar played for
Coach Jeremy Bunkley on the Junior
Varsity team. He made an impact on


$2,400 each. This is a great opportu-
nity for them to be seen by coaches
and scouts from colleges all over the
country.
Please support these boys by com-
ing out to the game on January 19,
in Lake City and sponsoring them on
their trip to Hawaii. Both boys have
accounts at Capital City Bank to ac-
cept donations.

by five and a little over a minute on
the clock T.J. made shots and drew
fouls to put the dogs on top.
Bronson answered back and the
Bulldogs got the ball with 10 seconds
remaining. Coach Jeremy Bunkley
tried his best to call a time out, almost
walking out on the court, but the ref-
erees could not hear or see him. The
missed time out call became crucial
when T.J. drove the ball down court,
drew contact but missed the game
winning shot. The JV Bulldogs fell in

The Varsity girls were also play-
ing Bronson Tuesday. The girls came
out shooting well and had a 10-5 lead
at the end of the first quarter. The
Bronson Lady Eagles came back and
dominated the following two quar-
ters and it turned out to be the differ-
ence in the game. The Lady Bulldogs
outscored Bronson in the fourth quar-
ter but it wasn't enough to get the
win. The Lady Bulldogs lost 35-30,
Somer Meresca played the game of

Thursday, January 10
The Lady Bulldogs were up against
Melody Christian Academy Thursday
night. The Lady Bulldogs absolutely
dominated Melody Christian in the
first quarter ending it 21-2. The Lady
Bulldogs outscored Melody Chris-
tian in every quarter, but first quarter
numbers were easily the difference in
the ball game. Amy Ergle had a great
game scoring 15, 2 steals, and 4 asl
sists. Samantha Williams also played
well. She had 10 points, 3 rebounds
4 steals, and 3 assists. The Lady Bulli
dogs rolled over Melody Christian
44-16.
The Varsity guys took the court af-
ter the girl's win. The Melody Chris-
tian guy's team was a much bigger
challenge. They started the game by
making threes. Their first six on tar,
get shots were from beyond the three
point arch. The Bulldogs didn't quit
but had trouble getting back into this
game. Bell had closed the gap early
in the second quarter but Melody
Christian started pulling away again.!
Big James Thomas had another great
game scoring 20 points with seven
rebounds. Justin Fowler showed just
how much better of a player he has
become this season. He is one of the
Bulldogs better players as he scored:
13 points Thursday evening. He also.
had 6 rebounds and 3 assists. The
Bulldogs looked like they might rally,
in the second half but fell short in the&
fourth quarter and lost 73-50.

Back to School,
Information You'll Need
By Stacey Lynn Brown
Gilchrist County School Board
Now that the kids are back in
school and gearing up for the second
half of the school year, the Gilchrist
County School Board would like to
point out a few things that will pre-
pare parents and students for a more
productive remainder of the year.
We all know that school atten-
dance should be a high priority in a
student's life. You're not just a warm
body, you're a participating member
of this dynamic group of people that
make up our school system. Your at-
tendance is vital for your learning
experience. You will miss some-
thing important if you miss a day of
school.
Academics is of the highest prior-
ity in the Gilchrist County system,
as evidenced by the high ranking the
county has received with the state,
two years running. Congratulations
kids, every single one of you have
contributed to the achievement of
that great honor. Your teachers and
administrators work very hard to as-
sure success and applaud your great
efforts towards this goal.
All Gilchrist County schools moni-
tor the students' progress by testing
three times a year with ThinkLink
which determines how well we are
measuring up to the Sunshine State
Standards. ThinkLink identifies
strengths and weaknesses in different
academic areas, allowing teachers
and parents to understand where the
difficulties may lie, thus giving them
the tools they need to address the de-
ficiencies and bring the student up to
speed on the subject. The students
should be finished with the second
round of testing by the end of Janu-
ary. ThinkLink scores are tabulated
instantly and parents should receive
reports accordingly. The tests will be
administered once more this school
year at the beginning of April.
Did you know that all schools are
providing after-school tutoring and
transportation home afterwards?
This is a great opportunity for extra
support in a subject area or with a
skill with which your child may be
struggling. Tutoring is not only for
students who are failing, it's a great
place to complete your understand-
ing of a subject which will allow you
to achieve the highest possible grade!
Permission slips are required for stu-
dents to ride home on the bus, so if
you're interested in tutoring and a
bus ride home, and don't have a per-
mission slip, please call your school's
office to obtain one.
Elementary student parents may
contact their child's school and their
classroom teacher if they need in-
formation or have questions on how
their child is performing.
Middle and high school counselors
are ready and waiting to assist stu-
dents and parents with academic de-
cision-making, scheduling, support

counselor.
Parents, did you know you can ac-

their students' excellence in achieve-
ment and wish you a great remainder

Bless you...in the south you can
pretty much count on hearing that if
you happen to sneeze in public. We
bless lots of things down here: our
food at mealtime.. .we have wall
hangings to bless our homes... you
can even criticize someone if you
properly bless him or her first: "She
is having a bad hair day...bless her
heart!" Why, I have even heard of
someone confronting another and
calling it "blessing them out!" Makes
you wonder how "blessed" they felt
after that was over...where does all
this come from?
A legend holds, that in the Middle
Ages it was believed that a person's
heart stops when they sneeze, and the
phrase "bless you" is meant to ensure
the return of life or to encourage their
heart to continue beating. Webster's
Dictionary defines the word bless as to
"invoke divine care for: to wish pros-
perity or happiness upon." I guess it
would be considered prosperous for
your heart to keep beating.. .probably
make you pretty happy too!
The Bible has a lot to say about be-
ing blessed. In fact the Hebrew word
for blessed in the Old Testament ac-
tually means "happy." Since happi-
ness is something we all spend our
lives looking for, it-would be worth
our effort to hear what the Bible says
makes us blessed. Psalm 1:1-2 says

Pictured are the 13 to 18-year-old SVL players along with Dixie County players just before the last soccer
game of the season.


Suwannee Valley League


soccer
January 10th marked the final
game of the soccer season in Gilchrist
County. Thirteen years ago Gilchrist
County celebrated its first soccer sea-
son with only one team participating.
That was a five-year-old team, that
played through the YMCA in Ala-
,chua County. Many of those students
will graduate high school this year.
Suwannee Valley Leagues has grown
., tremendously since then. During the
4 soccer season alone, SVL has 220
II---


students participating on 17 teams.
We would like to thank all those
past and present who contribute to
keeping these programs for our chil-
dren. It takes an unimaginable amount
of time and patience to be a director,
board member, sponsor, coach, and
even a parent helping to keep the pro-
grams running smoothly.
This year, the 13 to 18-year-old's
team made new friends and fine
tuned their skills. They learned more
than usual about sportsmanship and
how your behavior on and off the


field can affect what people think of01
you. They enjoyed a pizza party with
Dixie County players at the end of
the night.

people that .are taking care of me have been
absolutely wonderful to me, but I really would

dogs. But I'm not real sure about cats, I haven't
been around too many of those. If you would

Lawrence Frederick and a member of the frisbee dog team.

Humane Society Bark-N-Purr Charity Event


Ever since the frisbee went into
production in 1957, the plastic platter
has been a popular play toy for dogs.
The animals have shown natural ath-
leticism by leaping great heights to
catch a flying disc thrown by their
owners.
Lawrence Frederick, dog lover
and former Frisbee World Champion
from Jacksonville, Florida, decided
to combine his frisbee talents with
the talents of seven "rescue" dogs to
form a professional Frisbee dog tour-
ing show called the "Disc-Connected
K9's Frisbee Dog Team." Rescue
dogs are animals who are either
abandoned, homeless, sheltered, or
came from a human society.
Lawrence and his team of World
and National Frisbee champs will be
in Bronson at the Bark-N-Purr Char-
ity Event and BBQ Cook-Off on Sat-
urday, February 23, 2008. The event
will be held at the Bronson Youth
Athletic Field starting at 12 noon.
So bring the whole family and
come on out to see Aero Dynamic,
an 11-year-old three-time National
Champion; Happy Girl, a 5th place
finisher in the 2007 World Frisbee
Dog Championships who spent her
first year under a portable elementary

r 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 Aske'd 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 1 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 1 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 1 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. ,

(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208

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 property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

New Property Tax Legislation Summary

Pending approval of the Florida Supreme Court, the following property tax
amendments will be on the January 29th, 2008 ballot. If the ballot is approved by
60% margin, these provisions will become law.

*Doubling the Homestead Doubles the homestead exemption, allowing an
additional exemption of $25,000 to apply to the value between $50,000 and $75,000.
For instance: for a home valued at $72,000, the first $25,000 is tax exempt; taxes are
due on the second $25,000. Then, $22,000 would be tax exempt as that's the amount
that's more than $50,000. If approved by voters in January 2008, the additional
$25,000 exemption would be applied to all levies with the exception of school
districts for the 2008 tax roll.


Portability Allows homeowners to transfer the Save Our Homes benefit to a new
homestead (up to $500,000). If the new homestead is more valuable than the old
homestead, a taxpayer can tranfer the entire old CAP dollar amount (up to $500,000
CAP transfer). If a taxpayer downsizes, the percentage of protection will transfer to
the new homestead. In other words, if they had 50% protection before, they will have
50% protection in the new downsized home (up to $500,000 CAP transfer).

Homeowners that sold their homestead during 2007 and apply for homestead for
2008 can transfer their old CAP to the new residence. However, homesteads sold
during 2006 and prior years do not qualify for portability.


Starting from 2007, property owners who sell their homestead, have up to 2 years to
transfer the CAP to a new homestead.


The portability provision would be applied to all levies for the 2008 tax roll.

Non-Homestead 10% CAP If approved by voters in January 2008,
non-homesteaded properties will be capped at 10%. This non-homestead CAP would
have a base year of 2008 and the CAP would apply in 2009, The 10% CAP on
non-homesteads would be applied to all levies with the exception of school districts


TPP $25,000 Exemption Grants a new $25,000 exemption for tangible personal
property. All TPP taxpayers must still file a Tangible Personal Property Return. If
approved by taxpayers in January 2008, the $25,000 TPP exemption would be
applied to all levies for the 2008 tax roll.


Rollback Rate Already law Requires cities, counties, and independent special
districts to adopt the "Rolled Back" millage rate each tax year. In other words,
millage rates are set to ensure that tax revenue for the current year must be equal to
tax revenue for prior year, excluding new construction and an adjustment for a
statewide income growth rate. This is already law and unchanged with this new bill.


Please give us a call or come by if you have any questions.

devoted her life to her husband, chil-
dren and the Catholic Church. She
most enjoyed the role of homemaker
and making crafts. She was a mem-

1980, one grandson and one great-
granddaughter.

Rhode Island at a later date and the
family requests that any memorials
be made to your favorite charity.


Mr. Louis J. Federmack

NAP application closing
date set for January 31
Producers in need of insurance
coverage for Spring and Fall annually
planted crops under the Noninsured
CropAssistance Program (NAP) have
until January 31 to apply for certain
crops for which the catastrophic level
of insurance is not regularly available,
said Kevin L. Kelley, State Executive
Director for the USDA Farm Service
Agency (FSA). "Crop insurance is an
important risk management tool for
farmers, but it's not available for all
crops. That's why NAP is so impor-
tant," said Kelley.
NAP is a federally funded program
that provides financial assistance
to producers of noninsurable crops
when low yields, loss of inventory
or prevented planting occurs because
of natural disasters. "Producers must
apply for coverage before disaster
strikes,", said Kelley. "Like regular
crop insurance, once an application
period closes, the opportunity to ob-
tain coverage is gone."
NAP applications for coverage of
eligible crops must be filed, and ser-
vice fees paid,, by Jan. 31, 2008, the
application closing date. 'Producers
should contact their local FSA Office
for specific crop application sales
closing dates.
NAP coverage requires a service
fee of $100 per crop, per producer
with a $300 cap per county. Out-of-
pocket expenses will not exceed $900
for any producer, even if production
occurs in more than three counties.
Service fees may be waived for eli-
gible limited resource producers.
Crops eligible for NAP coverage
are those for which crop insurance
is not' available, and include fruits
and vegetables, aquaculture, pecans,
turfgrass and forage crops. Applica-
tion closing dates vary by crop, and
producers should contact their local
Farm Service Agency county office
for details.
More information on NAP and ad-
ditional disaster assistance programs
is available online at: http://www.
fsa.usda.gov/


RESOLUTION 2008-2009
A RESOLUTION OF THE BOARD
OF COUNTY COMMISSIONERS OF
GILCHRIST COUNTY, FLORIDA;
EXPRESSING CONCERN FOR THE
PASSING OF THE
CONSTITUTIONAL
AMMENDMENT ON THE


JANUARY 29, 2008 BALLOT.
WHEREAS, Florida's counties pro-
vide residents with law enforcement,
criminal justice, parks and recreation,
community health care, transportation
and road maintenance, economic devel-
opment, libraries and many other ser-
vices.
WHEREAS, counties face rising op-
erational costs from population growth,
health care needs, property insurance and
fuel prices;
WHEREAS, unfunded mandates im-
posed by the state and federal govern-
ments add $1 billion to counties' fiscal
burdens;
WHEREAS, counties depend on prop-
erty tax revenue as a major source of
funding for services;
WHEREAS, the Florida Legislature
passed HB1B in June 2007 requiring lo-
cal governments to roll back their budgets
to 2006-2007 levels, cut an additional 3
to 9 percent and cap future property tax
rates;
WHEREAS, the property tax consti-
tutional amendment on the January 29,
2008 ballot would further limit county
funding by doubling the homestead ex-
emption, making the Save Our Homes
tax cap benefits portable, capping annual
assessed value increases on non-home-
stead property to 10 percent and offering
a $25,000 tangible personal property tax
exemption;
WHEREAS, the January constitutional
amendment may save the average Florid-
ian 66 cents a day but force counties to
limit vital services upon which residents
depend;
WHEREAS, the limitation in services
will diminish local control and decrease
quality of life for residents; and
WHEREAS, the constitutional amend-
ment would cut school funding by $1.5
billion over the next five years.
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT Rf-
SOLVED that the Gilchrist County Com-
mission expresses concern about the Jan-
uary 29, 2008 constitutional amendment
on property taxes, and the ability of the
County and School Board to provide es-
sential services if it passes.

Sons of Confederate Veterans honor Davis, Lee and Jackson


By Anna Wild
Members of the John Hance
O'Steen Camp 770 hosted their an-
nual Lee, Jackson celebration on Sat-
urday, Jan. 12.
This year they also honored Con-
federate President Jefferson Davis,
who was known as a persuasive
speaker in the U.S. Senate and a great
leader.
Alfred Hammond Jr. and Wilbur
Allen O'Steen Sr., both former mem-
bers of Camp 770 who left their mark
prior to passing away were honored
during the celebration. The group
was pleased to have guests from
many neighboring camps in Florida
and the Florida Division Command-
er of Sons of Confederate Veterans
Doug Dawson.
General Tom Jessee, a descendant
of General Robert E. Lee, represents
General Lee whom he closely resem-
bles and Emery Thrift who portrays
General Thomas "Stonewall" Jack-
son stepped back in time and donned
period clothes to speak about the lives
of the two men. General Jackson was
born Jan. 21, 1824 and General Lee
was born Jan. 19, 1807. General
Jackson fought in the Mexican War
and the Civil War where he earned
his nickname "Stonewall" after the
Battle of 1st Manassas. After serv-
ing the Confederacy he joined Gen-
eral Lee at Richmond at the Battle of
Cold Harbor. That is where his life
was cut short after he was mistakenly
fired upon by his own men when he
passed through lines to make a per-
sonal inspection of their situation.
General Lee was born in the light
of his father who was a Revolution-
ary War hero. After he fought in the
Mexican War he returned to service
as an army engineer. When Abra-
ham Lincoln became president South
Carolina seceded along with six addi-
tional states. General Lee was asked
to take command of the US Army to
stop the rebellion; instead General

Emery Thrift and General Tom Jessee brought the lives of General
Jackson and General Lee to life during the annual celebration of their
'birthdays hosted by John Hance O'Steen Camp 770.


John Hance O'Steen Camp 770 was pleased at .the turnout for their annual celebration honoring the
birthdays of General Lee, General Jackson and Jefferson Davis. (1 to r) Guest speaker Kim Cullars from
Orlando, Commander CSS FL Camp 102; Clement Lindsey, Commander Camp 770; Emery Thrift repre-
senting General Jackson; Tom Jessee representing General Lee; Jim Darby, 8th FL Quincey Young Guards;
Harry Hurst, Private William Riley Milton Camp 741, Doug Dawson, FL Div. Commander, SCV.


Lee offered his services to the newly
elected president of the confederate
states, Jefferson Davis and took his
place in history.
The guest speaker at the event was
Kim Cullars from Orlando, Com-
mander CSS Florida Camp 102. Cul-
lars shared the life of the Confederate
Naval Soldier. Cullars started reenact-
ing about 16 years ago after his wife
suggested he get a hobby. After some
research he learned there was little
known about the sailors of the era and
he wanted to learn more, today he is

very knowledgeable about the naval
soldier's life in these earlier years.
The Confederate Navy was very ef-
fective in disrupting whaling, import
ships and other industries and busi-
nesses to wreck havoc in the northern
states. In the beginning of the Civil
War there were very few men avail-
able with boating skills, most that
had these skills were already fighting
in the infantry. Twenty-five percent
of the US Naval Officers came to the
south to serve; all of them first turned
over their ships before going to the


south.
Unfortunately there were more of-
ficers than ships so many of them did
not get to use their best skills. The
sailors typically ate better than the
infantry soldiers and this was one
draw for many to join the navy. Civil
War history does remember many
of the ships' battles such as the CSS
Alabama, Shenandoah, Tallahassee,
Florida, Georgia, St. Mary's, the first
confederate submarine; CSS Hunley,
and the CSS Virginia, made famous
as the restored ironclad ship.
