Lack of quorum cancels

planning commission

hearing set for Monday


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Gilchrist County Planning Com-,
mission meeting that was scheduled
for Monday, Feb. 25 to consider spe-
cial use permit applications on a pro-
posed water bottling plant and mulch
mill among other things has been
cancelled.
According to Gilchrist County
Planner Taylor Brown, the hearing
was cancelled because a quorum
would not be present Monday eve-
ning. Planning commission -member
Johnny Martin resigned his seat last
week, planning commission chair-
man Alan Mikell will be out of town
on business and planning commis-
sion member Roosevelt Stalvey is
also unable to attend the scheduled
hearing.
The planning commission hearing
has been re-scheduled for March 10
at 7 p.m. in the Commission Meet-
ing Room, located at 210 South Main
Street in Trenton.


At that meeting, the planning com-
mission will consider a special use
permit application for a spring water
bottling plant along County Road
340 and NE 60th Street just one-half
mile east of the Coca Cola Water
Bottling Plant. Bell attorney Ray Earl
Thomas, Jr., acting as agent for Blue
Springs Properties, Inc., submitted
the special use permit application
on Monday, Feb. 4. Planning com-
mission members will also review
a special use permit application for
a 9,000 square foot mulch mill near
the intersection of State Road 47 and
County Road 232. James Johnson
submitted the permit application for
property owner Gilchrist Wade, Inc.,
a Sandy McArthur landholding.
Once the hearing begins, the plan-
ning commission will hear staff rec-
ommendations from Brown, prior to
.hearing comments from each appli-
cant and opening the floor up to pub-
lic comment.

Trenton Junior FFA member Erin
Jones showed the Reserve Champion
fat steer at the Florida State Fair in
Tampa last Wednesday.
Twelve-year-old Erin was thrilled
after "Little Hal" her 1124-pound
Angus steer was named first in its
class and later reserve champion of
the show.
"Lil Hal" was named after breeder
Hal Phillips of Williston, whom she
purchased her steer from in August
2007.
When she first entered the show
ring, Erin felt like the three judges
did not like her steer because they
walked right by him to look at the


other steers in her class. Only when
all three judges declared "Lil Hal"
first in the class did Erin's face break
into a smile as she started petting the
steer between his ears to signal suc-
cess in the show ring.
"It took me seven times to do
what she did her first time showing
in Tampa!" said Earl Jones Jr., Erin's
older brother, who won Grand Cham-
pion fat steer at the Florida State Fair
in 2000.
Last week Erin continued a family
tradition of showing excellent steers


Rural roads plagued by litter


By Carrie A. Mizell
From corn and concrete bags to
children's shoes and household gar-
bage a crew from the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Road Department recently saw
it all as they picked up over 8,000
pounds of debris over a seven-day
period from along county roadways.
According to Gilchrist County
Road Department Assistant Superin-
tendent Billy Cannon, a crew of three
to four inmates from Lancaster Cor-
rectional Institute are sent out every
day to pick up trash along roadways.
Typically residents call in to report
litter along the roads they live on,
Cannon explained.
"People expect us to just go out
and pick up aroad," Ron McQueen,
county administrator said. "They
don't consider the cost and the fact
that they could fix the problem."
Once the litter is picked up by the
crew there is usually a two-week
turnaround before the trash is again
littering the same ditches, Cannon
said. As long as people continue roll-
ing down their windows and throw-
ing it out, Cannon said the road de-
partment will continue its efforts to
clean it up.
"Years ago everyone used litter
bags and people really took pride
in their communities..." McQueen
said.
Over the last several years the
amount of litter dotting the roadways
has progressively gotten worse, Pat
Fischer, supervisor of the Gilchrist
County Solid Waste Department
said.
According to Fischer, residents are
now seeing an excessive amount of
litter along the roadways because of
a decline in the number of inmate
crews available to pick up trash along
the highways.
"Gilchrist County relies heavily


Beer cans, oyster shells and old furniture litter the sides of Old Tyler
Road northeast of Trenton.


on inmate labor," Fischer said. "The
shortage of officers at Lancaster has
cut down on the number of inmate
crews we have available. In the past
the crews have mowed in the summer
and picked up litter in the winter, but
without them ... that's why the roads
look like they do."
Litter is an ongoing problem,
Fischer said.
"I don't know if people are just
lazy and don't secure their garbage
in the back of their trucks properly or
what, but I think if they would just tie
up their bags and not haul loose gar-
bage it would make a big difference,"
Fischer said.
Currently, three permanent drop-
off sites for garbage are available
throughout the county: in Bell, Wac-


cassassa and along SR 47. Route
trucks also travel the county each day
to pick up garbage.
The solid waste department admin-
isters the Gilchrist County Adopt-A-
Road program, which is currently
seeking groups of people, such as
school organizations and church
groups, to step up and volunteer their
time to clean up along county road-
ways. According to Fischer, groups
can adopt a road at no cost and trash
bags are provided as long as they
commit to pick up along their desig-
nated road at least four times a year.
Fischer estimates 30 roads in Gil-
christ County have been adopted, but
there are many still unclaimed. For
more information on adopting a road,

Groundwater levels extremely low,

conservation urged by SRWMD


Groundwater levels remained ex-
tremely low throughout most of the
Suwannee River Water Management
District (District) in January, with 5
monitoring wells dipping to historic
lows and 45 wells experiencing new


record lows for the month.
The District issued 17 emergency
construction permits for dry wells
in January, and a total of 174 since
April.
The drop in groundwater levels is
due primarily to a long-term rainfall
deficit, District officials say. In Janu-
ary the District received, on average,
3.66 inches of rainfall, with Levy and
Madison counties receiving over 4
inches and isolated areas receiving
more than 7 inches. However, the
rainfall deficit for the past 24 months
is 28.31 inches, and the National
Weather Service Climate Prediction
Center predicts that below-normal
rainfall through May will prolong
and worsen the drought.


Although river levels in January
increased at all monitored sites, re-
cord monthly lows were observed at
the Santa, Fe River near Fort White
and the Econfina River near Perry.
In response to the lengthy drought,
the District governing board in Janu-
ary issued the agency's first-ever
Phase II Water Shortage Order that
includes mandatory water-use re-
strictions which will take effect on
April 7, 2008.
The order includes restrictions,
and some exemptions, for all water-
use categories including residential,
commercial, industrial and agricul-
tural. Meanwhile, District officials

manship skills won her a first place

Erin's proud parents are Pee Wee'
and Jean Jones.
Gilchrist County was well repre-
sented at the Florida State Fair. Youth
who showed fat steers included:
Danielle Langford, Erin Jones, Ashe-
ton Sanchez, Brett Crawford, Kaylee
Crawford, Hunter Parrish, Daniel
Bell, Josh Leverett, Briana Bishop,
Brandalyn Bishop and Jeni Boland.

After
Amendment 1,
where do we go
from here?
Now that Amendment 1 has
been approved, the Gilchrist
County Board of Commissioners
will stand behind the vote and do
our best to ensure that the essential
services and programs we provide
on a daily basis will continue.
The Board did not take a yes or
no position on Amendment 1, be-
cause we felt voters could choose
for themselves what is best for
their situation.. Even though the
56.22 percent of yes votes in Gil-
christ County fell short of the re-
quired 60% needed to pass, the
measure passed overwhelmingly
statewide and we are left to find
ways of moving forward.
Passage of Amendment 1
equates to an approximate of
$432,212 loss in revenue in Gil-
christ County. This loss means we
have some serious belt-tighte.ning
to do. As a credit to your past and
present County Commission and
our County Staff, we have always
tried to follow sound fiscal spend-
ing policies that we hope will help
soften the impact of the revenue
loss. We are not, however, one of
those counties that used increased
property values and revenues to
rack up huge reserves or one that
indulged in rampant expenditures
as our Governor has suggested.
We have tried to be deliberate and
conservative in how we spent your
tax dollars and have not put our
taxpayers in huge debt.
We also have learned that the
Governor has proposed eliminat-
ing the Small County Solid Waste
Grant, which we use to help fund
our rural waste sites. This would
mean a loss of approximately
$277,000 in Solid Waste Revenue.
Rest assured, your County Com-
mission will be lobbying our State
Representatives to have this added
back to the Governor's budget.
We will be evaluating all pro-
grams that we fund and will have
some tough decisions to make,
We welcome citizen involve-
ment in our government and we
implore you to attend and be active
in our County Commission meet-
ings on the 1st and 3rd Monday's
of each month. Please take this op-
portunity to let us know what pro-
grams are important to you.
Please understand that further
cuts in county revenues either by
the Legislature or Taxation and
Budget Reform Commission are
anticipated this year.
We have a great County and
your participation as citizens and
taxpayers will make it an even bet-
ter County for all of us. We want
your feedback!

sioners:

Chairman

Gilchrist County takes no action to


support Seminole
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission ,.
took no action on Monday to adopt .
a resolution to support an expansion .
of a Seminole Electric coal-powered
generating facility in Putnam Coun-
ty. The City of Keystone Heights,
Fla. had requested the rural local
government support the expansion
of the coal-fired electric generating
facility with a resolution.
Central Florida Electric is one of
ten cooperative 'members, which
purchase electric power from Semi-
nole Electric.
Commissioner Randy Durden
recommended the board take no ac-
tion and allow the city of Keystone / .
Heights to take care of their issues ,

Commissioner Sharon Langford

The Gilchrist County Commission
received confirmation from Frances
Terry, executive director of the Su-

Trenton. The SREC had submitted
the application for the grant earlier
this year. The' senior citizens agency
received a confirmation that a con-
tract had been awarded for $245,847

The commission indicated that the
new facility, if the governor does not
cut it from the budget, would be con-

City council gives streetscape site


plan to Lake City engineering group


By Cindy Jo Ayers
During the Feb. 18 Trenton City
Commission meeting the commis-
sioners voted unanimously to give
the streetscape site plan work for
parking front of the health depart-
ment to Bailey, Bishop & Lane, Inc.,
a Lake City engineers, surveyors and
planners group.
Megan Carter of Bailey, Bishop
& Lane spoke to the commissioners
on behalf of the engineering group.
Before she spoke City Manager Jered
Ottenwess told the commissioners
that Mills Engineering of Bronson
had done the survey work on the
project, but he recommended they go
with Bailey, Bishop & Lane for the
streetscape site plan because it would
speed up the project. He went on to
report that Mills Engineering had a
lot of business and it would take them
some time to do the work.
Carter reported that her group
would be glad to bill the city however
necessary to be helpful. They agreed
to do the Preliminary Site 'Plan for
$4,950, which means since it will be
less than $5000 the work does not
have to be bid out.
"This is definitely the way to get
this moving forward," Ottenwess
said.
Ottenwess also said that Bailey,
Bishop & Lane were doing this proj-
ect for a very small fee in hopes of
doing other work for the city of Tren-
ton. After the Preliminary Site Plan
the commissioners will make sug-
gestions and then another plan will
be drawn and this plan will be the
the Final Design. The work entails
plans for a new parking area on NE


1st Avenue between Ted Burt's of-
fice and the Gilchrist County Health
Department. The plans will include
a one way street with angle parking
on both sides. The amount of use by
the health department causes a park-
ing problem in this area. This project
is estimated to cost over $100,000 to
complete. The city plans to use Com-
munity Redevelopment funds for this
project.


Other City Commission news in-
cluded a discussion on Trenton resi-
dents who leave their garbage cans
in the street. The commissioners dis-
cussed ways to encourage residents
to take the trash cans back close to
their homes after the garbage work-
ers empty their trash. It seems some
of the cans are actually left out in the
street which not only looks bad, it
also causes a traffic hazard.

THI-HRS~DAY. FEBRUARY 21,2008


John's Comments
By: John M. Ayers


The beautiful sound of rain com-
ing down on the roof Monday morn-
ing was a joy that we do not get to
hear very often. Although we have
received more rain in late January
and early February than we had dur-
ing the same period of time in late
2007; our ground water is in need of
being replenished. We did not get in
this drought condition overnight and
this extremely dry condition will not
go away for some time.
The 50th Daytona 500 is now his-
tory and Ryan Newman driver of the
Alltel Penske Dodge received the fan
fare and the cash purse to go along
with the beautiful trophy. My interest
in car races declined when the fans
attending the events grew to the point
the lines became unbearable. I did
see the last few laps of this history-
making event Sunday afternoon on
Fox. It was the best finish of a race
that I have seen, even though I am not
a Dodge fan. The Penske team de-
serves all the credit, the two drivers


put things together when it counted
the most. That is the difference be-
tween being the champion and falling
back behind the winner.
It seems that every time NASCAR
changes the cars to make them more
competitive, the racing becomes
tighter and there are more caution is-
sues at the end of the race. I can un-
derstand that bumping and rubbing
go hand'in hand when race car driv-
ers have a shot at winning $1.5 mil-
lion and the title of being champion
of the Daytona 500.
Back to reality, Gilchrist County is
now considering updating the 2000
vision for this rural area. It seems that
the road to opportunity now comes
through Gilchrist County. County
residents and property owners need
to be aware of what they want for a
vision. In 2000 it was preserving the
rural lifestyle with an eye on agricul-
ture. Does Gilchrist County still want
this same thing?

The term 'controversial' hardly de-
scribes the backlash facing Univer-
sity of Florida President Bernie Ma-
chen since he was quoted earlier this
month as saying that agriculture is a
"dying industry in the state of Flor-
ida" and "not worthy of the invest-
ments being made by the Legislature
in the university's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS)."
Machen has since denied mak-
ing the comments to Farm & Ranch
News, which was published Feb. 5
in the online version of the Tampa-
based monthly newspaper that covers
Florida agriculture.
Machen's comments were report-
edly prompted by discussion on the
issue of how much of a proposed $50
million cut in the University of Flor-
ida's 2007-2008 budget will IFAS
have to take.
The University of Florida presi-
dent seems far more concerned with
seeing that the state's land grant uni-
versity be named one of the top 10
public universities in the country,
than he is with supporting agricul-

Problems with a water
bottling plant
The citizens of Gilchrist Coun-
ty need to be aware that it is up to
County officials to protect our most
irreplaceable natural resource. The
complete failure of the Suwannee
River Water Management district
to take a stand on the regulation of
water bottling plants in our area puts
the burden squarely upon their shoul-
ders. It is incomprehensible to me
that the District does not see stark
inconsistency in pleading for water
conservation from the citizens of the
County while issuing permits for the
extraction and removal of millions
of gallons of water per day from our
aquifer. In addition to the existing
bottling plant there are four other
permit applications in various stages
with the District. The demand for our
water resource will not stop until the


Increase Our Faith, Lord
PUBLIC INVITED
(Kent Heaton)


The Hebrew writer reminds us that without faith we
cannot be pleasing to God (Hebrews 11:6). Faith is the
necessary motivation of our lives to believe in what we
hope for and the evidence of what we cannot see
(Hebrews 11:1). As a child of God we continue to grow in
our faith. Faith is not a passive emotion but one that
requires constant growth and nourishment. Norman
Wharr said, "God can't steer a parked car." Faith moves
in our lives as we seek the higher calling of Jesus Christ.
Beginning Sunday, the Trenton Church of Christ will
begin a series of lessons of "Building A Faith Of My
Own." We have invited Steve Dewhirst from
Birmingham, Alabama to speak to us on this most
important subject. The lessons on Sunday will be at
9:30am and 10:30am. Beginning Sunday night the lessons
will be at 7:30pm. You would be our honored guest to
come and sit in the quiet of the hour and study these
gospel lessons focused on building our faith.
Sunday morning Steve will present two lessons:
"Making my Worship Valid" and "What is a Christian?"
The manner that I come to God will determine the
elements of my faith in Him. Jesus told the woman at the
well, "But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true
worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for
such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers" (John
4:23). Men have sought to worship God in their own way
based upon their own faith. Worship to God has always
been required on His terms. True worship is an exercise
of my obedient faith in the Lord.
The fundamental nature of a Christian is rooted in


faith. Someone said, "Faith can never be exercised by
proxy. You must actively develop it yourself Spiritual
growth begins when we move beyond the futile attempts
to grow passively and start actively engaging our faith.
Howard Hendricks has correctly discovered, 'There is no
such thing as a correspondence course for swimming.'If
you want to swim you must get in the pool.'" A Christian
is not just a name or an attitude; it is a walk of life. Faith
is the core heartbeat of every thought, every action, every
word and intent in a person's life. Faith believes that God
will reward those who diligently seek. Him (Hebrews
11:6).
Sunday night the lesson will be, "Keeping our Focus."
Monday: What kind of God do we serve? Tuesday: What
kind of faith do we have? Wednesday: What kind of
Christian will I be? Thursday: Why I must trust in God's
grace. Friday: Looking for Home. These lessons will
focus on the personal needs of the individual to discover
and rediscover the eternal truths of a personal faith in
God.
You will not be embarrassed in any way. Come enjoy a
time of refreshing in singing praises to God and a study of.
the word of God. Bring your Bibles as we will be using
the Bible as our guide. Gather your family together and
make it a family affair. We ask for simple investigation of
the truths presented. If there is anything that you do not
understand or question what is said or done, our goal is to
study with you and find the truth of God's word not
ours. We look forward to seeing you during our Gospel
meeting. Call for more information.

ture, which remains a $59 billion in-
dustry in Florida.
We agree with the stance taken by
Gilchrist County Farm Bureau Presi-
dent Roy Wilson that all departments
of the University of Florida should
equally share in any cuts made. IFAS
should not be singled out.
According to census reports,
81,489 acres in Gilchrist County
are designated as farmland with 408
farms producing $47.7 million in ag-
riculture products each year.
As Gilchrist County Extension
Agent Marvin Weaver said this
week, agriculture is the backbone
of Gilchrist County and the state of
Florida, though the agriculture indus-
try is often overshadowed by Mickey
Mouse-seeking tourists.
The University of Florida president
obviously does not know much about
the agriculture industry in Florida.
With a background in dentistry and
little experience working in a land
grant university, it is clear that Ma-
chen should spend time studying the
industry that puts food on his table.


supply is irreversibly damaged. Al-
though the cumulative impact must
be considered, the immediate concern
is the application from Blue Springs
Properties, Inc., to remove an aver-
age of 528,000 gallons per day.
The Santa Fe River System is un-
der very severe stress. The river is at
record lows and the flows from area
springs are critically diminished.
Anyone who has viewed the river
and springs over any period of time
must acknowledge the present situ-
ation as a severe crisis. Even with-
out questioning the validity of the
data furnished by the applicant and
their paid consultants, the observable
evidence is overwhelming that ad-
ditional bottling capacity should not
be allowed. The applicant states that
the plant usage will equal 3.2% of the
flows from the Blue Springs System
and dismisses this as insignificant.
An additional 3.2% withdrawal from
an already depressed system is a very
significant issue.
To put this plant into perspective,
528,000 gallons per day would drop
the water level in a 60 acre lake by
approximately ten feet per year. If a

Sunshine and warm temperatures
brought me out of the house last
weekend. I spent some time clean-
ing out a flower bed while I soaked
up the sunny weather. With spring
gardening in mind I placed an order
with Seed Savers Exchange during
January and my seed have arrived.
The Seed Savers Exchange only sells
heirloom seeds, which they have col-
lected since 1975.
Over the weekend I planted a pack
ofAmish Snap Peas in two rows. Just
in front of the snap peas, which are
runners, I planted a pack of Nance
Carrot seeds. Hopefully the peas will
run up the fence that runs between the
two rows. The pack description reads,
"Superb snap pea that was grown in
the Amish Community long before
present snap pea types. Vines grow
5-6 feet tall are heavy producers of
two-inch pods." Hopefully these peas
will do well and produce some good
snap peas, which I can stir-fry for our
family.
I chose Nance Carrots for one sim-
ple reason, they were the variety of
seeds my father (Lloyd Beauchamp
Sr.) always planted. He grew great
carrots. Being a retired farmer didn't
mean he was through planting, he
grew wonderful gardens and man-
aged to keep his hands in the soil.
When our children were young we
visited with the late Mr. Kell Darsey
quite a bit. Mr. Kell was a wonderful
gardener who grew splendid carrots.
I remember my children pulling car-
rots from his garden and eating them
the whole time we toured his wonder-
ful spring garden. By the end of our
visit both Carrie and J. would have
an orange circle around their mouths
from eating so many carrots.
Through the years Mr. Kell had
gained a great amount of garden-
ing knowledge that he was happy to
share. One piece of advice he gave
us on getting carrot seeds to come up
John and I still use when planting car-
rots. Carrots like a lot of water when
they are sprouting. Mr; Kell told us to
wet the carrot bed or row well after
planting and then wet a piece of old
carpet (shag is good) cut to row-size
well and place carpet side down on
the row. Then every two or three days
wet the carpet down again by spray-

private industry were to apply to di-
rectly pump surface lakes dry, there
is no way this would be allowed.
Underground resources should be no
different. Based on the estimated av-
erage per capital residential water us-
age of 100 gallons per day provided
by the USGS, this plant alone would
remove over 31% of the total water
used by all of the estimated 17,000
residents in Gilchrist County. The
permitted capacities of this plant and
the existing plant would approxi-
mately equal the total usage of all of
the residences in the County. This
shows how futile and ridiculous the

ing water over it and check under-
neath and in a week or 10 days you
will see the tiny green carrot plant.
At that time remove the carpet. This
works well if you work and don't
have time to wet the carrot bed two
or three times a day. Once they sprout
they are very easy to grow.
I also planted a pack of Old Fash-
ioned Vining Petunia that I hope do
well this summer. These petunias
are so hardy they self-seed and grow
back in the yards of old home places
where the homes no longer exist.
I was a little surprised how sore I
was after spending the day working
in the yard. I guess that just proves
.you don't get much exercise quilting
away the winter.

While looking through a farmer's
Almanac I found a recipe for Key
Lime Cake. After making a few
changes here is my version of Key
Lime Cake. Everyone at the Journal
gave it the taste test on Monday and
it got a thumbs up rating.


1 box lemon cake mix
(I used Duncan Hines)
1 box lime jello, small size
1 1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 eggs
1/2 cup orange juice
Glaze
3 tablespoons confectioner's sugar
3 tablespoons key lime juice
(I used the bottled key lime juice
from Hitchcocks)
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix
first five ingredients and beat 2 to 3
minutes at medium speed. Pour in 3
round greased and floured cake pans.
Bake for approximately 25 minutes.
To glaze, mix confectioner's sugar
and lime juice. While layers are still
warm, drizzle glaze over layers.

zens would be in comparison to the
consumption of the bottling plants.
All businesses that will have nega-
tive social and environmental im-
pacts on a community typically try to
represent themselves as an economic
boon to the impacted area. Unem-
ployment is currently very low and
the proposed $12 per hour wage will
not provide the kind of growth that
will benefit this County in the future.

Gilchrist County AARP Chapter honored


Submitted
The Gilchrist County AARP Chap-
ter was recently recognized for being
one of only six chapters of excellence
in Florida.
Such an accomplishment only
comes after high commitment and
hard work from a group of great
leaders who work well together and
involve others. This is a remarkable
achievement all by itself.
Additionally, the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce has named


the Gilchrist County AARP Chapter
as its Outstanding Service Organiza-
tion. The chapter has averaged over
2,500 volunteer hours per month
working in nursing homes, food
banks, senior centers, for the hospi-
tal, the library, the Salvation Army,
and more. This is an amazing per-
formance of unselfish giving to their
community and neighbors.
Congratulations to the Gilchrist
County AARP Chapter on both of
these honors.

Cedar Key, events will start at 10:30
a.m.. Be sure to mark your calendar
for a fun filled day.
Captain Dan Kipnis from Miami is
the guest speaker. His presentation
will focus on how global warming
will affect fishing in our area. He is
an ardent fisherman with a long list of
credentials that include having owned

centrates on the preservation of fish-
ing and hunting-in Florida. He has
served as a Florida Marine Fisherieg
Commissioner, and the Biscayne Bay
Management Committee member.
His presentation reflects not only his
passion for fishing; it reflects his con-
cern for prtectfgg oigienvironment
for future generations. The National
Wildlife Federation has tapped Dan
to spread the word about the impact
of global warming.
After Dan's presentation, lunch
will be provided for members of the


Friends organization. Nonmembers
can join us for lunch for $10 per per-
son. Since the cost of membership is
only $10 per person or $20 per family,
we suspect most will want to become
members. As you might suspect, this
is a part of the Friend's membership
drive. Regardless, you should treat
yourself to Kenny McCain's chicken,
ribs, and 'swamp' cabbage plus all
the fixings provided by the Friends
Board members.
Starting at 1:30 p.m. there will be
several events. You are welcome to
just attend the afternoon sessions. Dr.
Dawn Miller with rehabilitated birds
of prey will describe her work. There
will be a naturalist hayride combined
with a ride on the Suwannee River,
compliments of Tidewater Tours out
of Cedar Key. There will be a dem-
onstration of .Refuge wildlife man-
agement and its importance to habitat
management. Finally, there will be
an educational tour of the bat house
area along with a short walk on the
new river boardwalk. Time will be
such that everyone can participate in
several events. Be sure to bring your
kids or grandkids.

At press time, D. Ray Harrison Jr.
was still listed in the Intensive Care
Unit at North Florida Regional Hos-
pital. The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioner underwent emergency surgery
on Feb. 8 to repair a perforated ulcer
and remove his gallbladder. Since
the surgery, Harrison's condition has
been up and down, family members
said. Sunday was a very rough day,
but by Monday evening the report
was good. Harrison's doctor was
encouraged by his progress. He was
reportedly awake and asking for ice
chips. Everyone is asked to pray for
Harrison's ongoing health battle and
his family.
Condolences go out to Kane Cros-

RUNNING ENTHUSIASTS WILL TACKLE

FIVE POINTS OF LIFE HALF-MARATHON


"The farthest I have run so far
is 17 miles," Bongiovanni said. "I
have my wife drop me off in Old
Town and I run home."
Bongiovanni will run his first
half-marathon on Sunday, Feb.
24 with his friend, Scott Pendar-
vis. Both will put on their run-
ning shoes to compete in the "Five
Points of Life Half-Marathon"
which will run through downtown
Gainesville. The 13.1 mile half-
marathon will serve as a fundraiser
for LifeSouth's Five Points of Life
program, which raises awareness
of the need for lifesaving donations
of blood, aphaeresis, marrow, cord
blood, organ and tissue.
Bongiovanni has run five 5K runs
already, four in Gainesville and one
at Disney World, but nothing as in-
tense as the half-marathon.
"I am shooting for less than eight
minutes per mile and Scott wants
to complete the course in under
two hours," Bongiovanni said.
Pendarvis was looking to "fit-
ness-up" when he joined his friend
running six months ago. Currently
he rimuns four days a week with Bon-
giovanni.
After completing the half-mara-
thon, the two have set a goal to run
the next 26.2-mile Disney World
Marathon together.
Not only do the two men share
an enthusiasm for running, but
they also work together in the digi-
tal reception service industry, at-
tend church at Pine Grove Baptist
Church and consider themselves
movie fanatics.

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 formnn 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 .1 of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
th0 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 within 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 ont
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.

Tangible Personal Property please contact:
Damon C. Leggett
Gilchrist County Property Appraiser
112 South Main Street, Room 138
Trenton, Florida 32693
(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 I.
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 I, 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.

Arbor Day is a celebration of the
planting of trees. The first Arbor Day
celebration took place April 10, 1872,
in Nebraska. In the years following,
other states celebrate Arbor Day at
different times of the year to coincide
with their tree-planting seasons.
In 1970, Richard Nixon proclaimed
the last Friday in April to be National
Arbor Day. In Florida, Arbor Day is
the third Friday in January. It pro-
vides an opportunity for people to
inspect trees, observe the benefits of
trees and of course, plant trees.
This year, the Bell Elementary
School celebrated Arbor Day. Each
of the 4 fifth grade classes joined the
Gilchrist Soil and Water Conserva-
tion District and the Florida Division
of Forestry and planted a. tree with
classmates and teachers. Four Lau-
rel Oak trees were planted around the
campus. The students dug holes, pre-
pared the sapling, planted the tree and
mulched around it. They learned the
correct way to plant trees and were
quizze+on their tree knowledge. The
students used this opportunity to re-
place a few that were lost, as well as
to establish new trees.
On hand to assist and monitor
planting were Darlene Smith and
John StubblefieldoL..dL4e Gilclh.U,
Soil and Water Con, relation Distict.
Sara Creel and John Ke) ton from the
Florida Division of Forestry.
Teachers were given goody bags of
assorted information for the students
and a tree in a container to take home.
Students were encouraged to plant
them at home and monitor their trees'
progress.
The event was sponsored by busi-
nesses across Gilchrist County. All
of the planted trees were donated by
Cox's Nursery, Mulch by Kincaid
Mulching, seedlings by the Florida
Division of Forestry Andrews Nurs-
ery. We thank all who participated
to make this event a success. Thank
you to the principal and teachers for
allowing the GSWCD and DOF to
celebrate Arbor Day with them.

ference between a hissie fit and a con-

The Trenton Lady Tigers basketball
team has completed a very successful
season. The Lady Tigers represented
THS with honor when they claimed
the runner-up title in the district finals
on February 2. The Lady Tigers de-
feated Oak Hall, 48-44, in the district
semi-final game that allowed them
to take on #3 ranked Lafayette High
School in the district final. Trenton
closed out the season with a loss to #1
Jacksonville University Christian in
the regional quarter-final. In a district


with some incredibly strong teams
which frequently make it to the state
playoffs, the ladies did a great job
representing Trenton High School in
a playoff situation. The Lady Tigers
finished the season with a record
of 16-8 with wins over 3A District
Champion Union County, and 1A
District Champion St. Francis.
Sophomore, Kayla Gent ended the
season with an astounding 376 points
and 133 rebounds, followed by Kan-
ece Richarson with 308 points and
86 rebounds. The team is relatively
young, retiring only 3 seniors this


year Nakita Jones (123 points, 148
rebounds), Bridjete Rome (77 points,
82 rebounds), and Danielle White
(99 points, 180 rebounds). Return-
ing next year for the Lady Tigers will
be juniors, Jasmine Powell, Kaitlysin
Sauls, Alexis Dixon; sophomores,
Jo Hutchison, Kayla Gent, Kanece
Richardson, and Sarah Bessent; and
freshman, Ashley Small. While the
seniors will be missed, next year
promises another interesting season
for the Lady Tigers, as they bring this
year's experience, and some hard-
learned lessons back to the court.

A Little Niqht Music

and Comedy


Left to right: Daniel Powell, Travis Kortessis (hidden), Sean Boutwell,
Kevin Conklin, Brad Caves and Tyler Trinchero perform Blue Oyster
Cult skit.


Patrons of the 4th Annual "Eve-
ning of the Arts" Dinner Theatre
were treated to an evening of good
food, music and comedy in the set-
ting of an Italian Cafe.
As the guests arrived, they were
greeted by band members as waiters
dressed in black and white and with
hats, bow ties and moustaches. The
waiters presented each lady with a
red carnation and assisted them to
their table. This hard-working group
saw that endless beverages and as-
sorted desserts were supplied to the
guests during the evening's entertain-
ment.
While the guests began dining on
the Italian fare, Master of Ceremony,
Brad Surrency began the introduction
of the 31 musical and vocal talents
for the evening.
The new Bell Jazz Band kicked off
the evening with a rendition of Jun-
gle Boogie. Seventh grade clarinetist,
Tyler Cutts performed two pieces,
Bop to the Top and Reverie. Earlier
this month, Tyler received superiors
at the District Solo/Ensemble.
Eight Grade Band performed All
Stars.
A highlight for her students was
Band Director, Sara Gover, perform-
ing a tuba solo of Ragtime. She then
paired with Cory Edwards for a tuba
duet of 2 Marches. The Eight Grade
Wood wind Choir performed Emer-
ald Isle.
During the evening performances,
the audience was treated to the vo-
cal talents of four young ladies. Jes-
sica Smith did a soulful version of
Anyway, Courtney Akins strongfully
belted out the song Kerosene and


Charity Ware sang the love ballad
Killing me Softly. Dressed in period
costume, Raychel Thomas, recited
Shakespeare's As You Like It.
As the musical portion of the eve-
ning ended, the skits began. The
opening began with Kevin Conklin
as Elwood and Brad Caves as Jake in
the Blues Brothers. Their band con-
sisted of Daniel Powell and Travis
Kortessis and back up singers Sandra
Deleonardo and Christina Richey.
After their blues rendition, Kevin and
Brad went into their dancing routine
that led to a prat fall by Brad and an
immediate "Live from Bell, Florida -
its Thursday Night Live."
The next skit had Sean Boutwell
as Will Farrell's Gene and Cody Hart
as music producer, Bruce Dickinson
join the group in Behind the Music
- Blue Oyster Cult. This was a skit of
a music session gone wrong.
Timothy Griffith portrayed the
head of standards and measures in
Deca-bet in a skit about how the met-
ric system could affect the alphabet.
Those "Wild & Crazy Guys," the
Festrunk Bros. were Cody Hart and
Steven McClaskey. This comedy
about east meeting west in the Amer-
ican dating scene, included an out-
standing performance by Curt Craw-
ford as a Bell High School student.
Alyssa Chaney and Christina
Richey played the foxes. Sean Bout-
well played character Matt Foley and
Valerie Fowler was Band Director,
Sara Gover in a take off of Motiva-
tional Speaker with a twist. Matt is
used to motivate the section leaders
for the upcoming District competi-
tion.


Congratulations!

Looks at Books had Charity Ware
as Interviewer Jane Curtin and Thom-
as Peace as Author Bob Simpson in a
skit showing the comical side of pre-
venting bear attacks.
The final skit of the evening was
a look at the hidden coffee commer-
cials craze of the seventies and ended
with a well-timed whipped cream pie
fight at the end.
Closing the evening was members
of the Marching band performing
Kung Fu Fighting. The Bell Band

Tigers Begin Season
On Top
By Brandon McElroy
There must be something about
playing the Bronson Eagles and it
raining. The Tigers were scheduled
to play the Eagles on Tuesday, but
once again due to weather; the game
was postponed to the latter part of the
season. However, with weather per-
mitting, the Tigers played Thursday's
game against the Bears with no inten-
tion of losing.
The Tigers jumped out to a 2-0
lead in the first inning and then batted
around in the second scoring 9 runs.
The defense for the Tigers was vir-
tually error-less as Dixie scored one
unearned run in the 4th inning.
The pitching for the Tigers was
incredible as Andy Jones and Kar-
son Gilbert both had an E.R.A. of 0.
The Tigers were really "on the ball"
Thursday night as Justin Alvarez,
Chance Brooks and Karson Gilbert
all had triples. Andy Jones and Caleb
Smith both were perfect at the plate
hitting a faultless 1.000%. The "ten
run rule" came into effect in the 5th
inning putting the Bears out of their
misery.
There's no better way to kick off
the regular season than with a win
like this one! The final score to the
first game of the year was your Tren-
ton Tigers 15 and the Dixie County
Bears 1.

CCLC After-School
Program
Recently, at Trenton Elementary,
the 21st Century Community Learn-
ing Center after-school program was
visited by Central Florida Electric
Co.
Mr. Scott and Mr. Smithers pro-
vided a live presentation regarding
electrical power line safety. This was
a part of our ongoing wellness unit of
community safety. Mr. Scott and Mr.
Smithers demonstrated how power
lines work, the dangers of power lines
that are down, and the effects of natu-
ral occurrences with power lines.
The students benefited greatly from
this experience and were very excited
to share "electrical happenings" in


to order daylilies.
The fair is fast approaching. We
would like to wish the kids good
luck with all their projects. Every-
one should take time out to go to the
Suwannee River Fair and see what a
great job the kids do, it takes a lot of
time and hard work. Our community
support for our kids is very important
and appreciated.
Please join us at our next meeting
on Monday, March 10 at 7 p.m, at

GILCHRIST COUNTY SHERIFF


Why do I want to be your Sheriff?
TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

My mission if I am elected Gilchrist County Sheriff, is to provide the
highest level of professional law enforcement service to all of the
citizens of Gilchrist County, and to create safe communities by building
partnerships that work to prevent crime.

Since I began my career in Law Enforcement, it has been my goal to be Sheriff of Gilchrist County. I
am passionate about the issues that affect the people, children and businesses of this county. With the
upcoming tax cuts that we will be facing, I feel that it would be beneficial to have a sheriff that could
work in partnership with the Board of County Commissioners to do what is best financially for the
citizens of Gilchrist County. Another main concern I have, as a Law Enforcement Officer and a father,
is the drug problems that plague our schools and our children.

My Law Enforcement career began with the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office in 1994 as a 911
dispatcher. After completion of the Law Enforcement Academy at Santa Fe Community College in
1996 I became the School Resource Deputy for Trenton Elementary, Middle and High School. I was
promoted to Investigator in 1999, to a Lieutenant in 2004, and to Investigations Commander in 2005. In
2005 I began working with my current employer D.G.G Taser and Tactical Supply and was employed
with Levy County Sheriffs Office as an investigator in 2006.

Please visit my website for my complete list of certifications, education, and experience.

I ask that you give me the opportunity to make a difference in Gilchrist County and I would

One of the antique quilts that will be displayed at the Suwannee Val-
ley Antique Quilt Festival on March 15th in Trenton.


An old-fashioned bed turning
will be held at the Suwannee Val-
ley Antique Quilt Show on March
15, 2008 in Trenton. A bed turning
is a means of introducing quilters
and non-quilters to the beauty of
antique and vintage quilts in an
unusual way. A bed is set up and
many layers of quilts are placed
on it. As each quilt is turned back
another beautiful antique quilt is
revealed. Each quilt has a story,
whether it is a double wedding ring
made in the 50s for a lucky bride
or a grandmother's flower garden
quilt made in the 1920s or even a
late 1800s crazy quilt; as the quilts
are revealed, their story is told. This
presentation is reminiscent of how


our pioneer grandmothers in Florida
and elsewhere must have turned the
quilts back on their bed to show their
friends the beautiful quilts made by
the women in their family.
Other quilt related demonstrations
will also be underway throughout the
Antique Quilt show including spin-
ning, rug making, an old-fashioned
quilting bee as well as a tea party
held during the Civil War era. The
backdrop for these demonstrations
will be the beautiful antique and
vintage quilts, which will be hang-
ing outdoors on both sides of Main
Street. The historic Trenton Railroad
Depot will serve as headquarters for
this festival. Several quilt collections
will be displayed there including a

How do you show someone that
ybu love him or her? Chances are
pretty good that you just celebrated
Valentine's Day with an expression
of love to someone who is special
to you. The National Retail Federa-
tion estimates that Americans spent
approximately 17 billion dollars last
Thursday on the Valentine holiday.
Why all the fuss? According to Dr.
Gary Chapman, love is an emotional
need, and what we most need to learn
about love is how to express it in a
language that the other person un-
derstands. In Chapman's book "The
Five Love Languages," he explains
the five basic languages of love:
1. Words of Affirmation: this can
mean words of sincere praise for
results and efforts as well as words
of affection that express positive
thoughts toward someone as a person.
"You are such a great friend," "Your
eyes ate beautiful," or "I know that
didn't turn out like you hoped, but I
am proud of how hard you tried."
2. Quality Time: giving a portion of
time and your undivided attention is
a powerful communicator of love to
another person because our lives are
so busy. This doesn't mean simply
being in the same room at the same
time, but has everything to do with
togetherness...making sure the other

The Synopsis is: What happens
when the person you marry is no
longer the person you thought they
were? After a whirlwind courtship
and a fairy tale romance, straight-
laced Peter and flighty, pessimistic
Rita jump into marriage. After the
wedding, Peter realizes that Rita has
changed; rather than her usual self,
she seems... well... she seems like an
old man. Could this have anything
to do with that strange old man who
asked to kiss the bride at the wed-
ding?

person feels like they are the focus of
your attention.
3. Receiving Gifts: gifts are vis-
ible evidence of emotional love. Per-
haps this explains the billions spent
on Valentine's Day. The Greek word
from which we get our English word
gift is "charis" which means grace
or undeserved.. .for no reason. The
beauty of gifts is that they don't have
to be fancy or expensive to be valu-
able. A gift says "I care about you"
and "I think you are important." That
is the real treasure.
4. Acts of Service: Loving service
is an internally motivated desire to
give your energy for another. Just
doing something for someone, espe-
cially something they want or need
accomplished is a powerful way to
communicate love. Like quality time,
it requires a portion of our life set
aside and donated for another, but
acts of service also allows them to be
free of a task or chore.
5. Physical Touch: There is a reason
why parents are encouraged to hold
and cuddle their newborns... touch-
ing is an emotionally powerful way
to communicate love. This is why
we love to give and receive hugs and
why we enjoy a shoulder massage or
a good back scratch.. .touch makes us
feel loved and accepted.

Although all of the five love lan-
guages listed above are enjoyable,
every person has one or two of these
that makes them feel more loved than
the others... and by nature we speak
that language to others. If we enjoy
gifts, we will probably buy gifts for
those we love. If we want words of
affirmation, we will likely leave love
notes and be very encouraging ver-
bally. The problem comes when the
other person doesn't speak our lan-
guage. We may be speaking gifts,
but they want some quality time. Or
they may be doing acts of service for
us while we long to hear them say,
"I love you." We must learn to speak
the language of the other person if we
want them to feel loved by us. We can
usually determine our own language
by what we most often do for another
when we want to show love to them.
We can determine another person's
language by asking their preference
and watching what they do for oth-
ers. This principle can be applied in
friendships and parent-child/teenager
as well as romantic relationships.
This is valuable information to gain
because of its effect on our hearts,
and our hearts matter!
Blessings, Angie

ALERT week a grand success


The ALERT Academy Unit 38 vol-
unteer work week was a great success
as their motto "Ready to Serve" sug-
gests, and as the unit members dem-
onstrated to many citizens in our be-
loved county. There is no fee for the
work any unit does in a community.
For 2008, there were sixteen house-
holds serviced with either lawn, roof,
carpentry or demolition work. The re-
action of those who were served was
utter amazement, surprise, delight,
tears and gratitude. Commencing
each service job the ALERT crews
sang a gospel hymn to the recipient
and, in some instances, even gave
a word of prayer. Reactions to the
eventful week have been like having
"a new lease on life," since jobs were
so overwhelming the residents could
never even begin, but the ALERT
teams took care of all those assigned
to them. These ALERT work weeks
are developing into a true beautifica-
tion project for our county, and that
brings on a smile to our Code En-
forcement Officer, Diane Rondolet.
There was much pre-planning done
by the Character Council before the
unit arrived with some fifty-plus indi-
viduals, organizations and businesses
taking part in the event lasting from
February 11 through the 16, and cul-
minating with a rally held at the Ot-
ter Springs Lodge on Friday the 15th.
Before the rally started, two sections
of the unit came to join the others,
one from Tennessee, which was there
to assist tornado victims, and the
other from Miami, which just com-
pleted underwater rescue dive train-
ing. A total of 57 young men were
served breakfast on Saturday morn-
ing by Character Council members.
The rally, which was a pizza party
combined, was opened to the public
and gave the men of unit 38 an op-
portunity to share several songs, give
testimonies of what brought them to
the ALERT Academy, and present
their skill during a "drill down."
ALERT units are deployed only
on invitation. Work comprises of
disaster relief, humanitarian aid and
community service. ALERT Unit 38
was shown gracious hospitality by
Character Council members and oth-
ers of the community, who provided
not only a place-to stay at night, with
hot showers and laundry facilities,
but also wholesome breakfasts, fresh
lunches and hot suppers as well. The
council wishes to thank the individu-
als, organizations and businesses that
helped to make the week such a grand
?success. '-' .

event. It was truly exciting and one
which will be long remembered by
everyone involved. It was a week
which brought a renewed sense of
responsible ownership as well as one
of motivation in helping the needy
while seeing for oneself how posi-
tive, moral character is lived out in
day-to-day activities. The young men
who attend the ALERT Academy are
those who desire to learn more of
what good should mean to the indi-
vidual, how to inculcate the qualities
in one's personal life, and acquire the
understanding of how to stand alone
regarding wholesomeness, respect-
fulness, responsibility and honesty.
ALERT, an acronym for Air, Land,
Emergency Resource Team, with
headquarters in Big Sandy, Texas,
(just northeast of Dallas) receives no
government funds. It is entirely subsi-
dized by generous contributions from
individuals and private foundations. It
was founded as a military-style acad-
emy with all the rigors of military
physical training and discipline, but
without the offensive language and
weapons associated with regular mil-
itary training. There are three phases
the responders go through in the 51-
week period. For those who complete
the basic program, they can continue
on with training in the schools of
aviation, CDL, EMT, fire fighting,
law enforcement, underwater rescue,
or they may decide to stay on as staff


members such as instructor or even a
bus or van driver. Because the Acad-
emy is a faith-based organization,

GILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOSTERS


Dear Gilchrist County Fair Booster,


As you know, this year's Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show is just a couple of
weeks away. We are again working to raise funds to help buy animals that our FFA and 4-H
members will show in this year's fair. Our main goal is to help establish a minimum sale
price so the youth of our county are all supported equally. We also support the FFA Chap-
ters and 4 -H Clubs of Gilchrist County by trying to purchase their animals. With your help,
last year we were able to raise approximately $17,000.00 with which we bought 30
animals. The children that benefited from your gracious. donations all left this experience
with a huge smile on their face.


Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund raising
process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to 2079 SW
75thAve, Bell, Fl 32619. Please give Ronnie a call at 352-463-6143 or Terry 352-494-4638
if you have questions or if you would like to personally help with this project.


Again we really appreciate your help and look forward to your participation this year.


Sincerely,






Ronnie Smith & Terry Parrish

The Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy Board

portunity to get to know your fel-
low realtors. We were provided with
phenomenal information. Owen was
very enthusiastic and inspirational.
We broke off into teams and achieved
our goals for the day in record time
and had lots of fun doing it!
Everyone that participated felt we
reaves accomplished great things and we

that agriculture uses much more water

of acres of undeveloped surface area
that allows rainwater to recharge the
aquifer. Agricultural withdrawals are
also spread over thousands of acres.
With the increased usage of drip and
low volume irrigation systems, the
loss due to run-off and evaporation
has been greatly reduced and allows
a high percentage of the agricultural
withdrawals to be returned to the
aquifer. Extractions by the bottling
plants are very concentrated and are
removed from the local aquifer for-
ever. There is no logical comparison
between agricultural withdrawals
and bottling plant withdrawals and
it is obvious that, with regard to our
water resource, agriculture .again
proves to be a valuable environmen-
tal steward.
Many undesirable proposals get
pushed through the system because
each governmental agency in the ap-
proval process focuses on certain im-
pacts and depends on other agencies
to monitor certain issues. Please be
aware that the demand for our local
water resource by private industry
will continue aild no other regula-
tory agency appears willing to take a'
stand on the issue. Please encourage
the Planning and Zoning Commission
and the County Commission to make
the responsible decision to deny the
request for a Special Use Permit to
Blue Springs Properties, Inc.
Sincerely,
Jeffrey Spencer


We all need to conserve
Detroit City of water bottling.
Throughout the Southeast and right
here in Florida we are having wa-
ter shortage problems. This is our
chance; this is our opportunity to
show ihe rest of Florida that we are
paying attention to these issues. At-
lanta, Georgia and Raleigh Durham,
North Carolina are running out of
water. The prediction is, with normal
rainfall areas of central Florida are
going to run out of water within 6-15
years. Right here in our own back-
yard, studies are being done by St.
Johns Water Management District to
see if they can ship our water to cen-
tral Florida from the St. Johns River
and the Ocklawaha River.
Why should we care? We are sup-
posedly sitting on the Saudi Arabia
of water, and we would never run
out. Is it true? I don't think anyone
really knows, there are too many fac-
tors. What's the weather going to do?
How many new residents are going
to move into the area? If it does rain,
does it do any good? A quarter of an
inch every few days doesn't do much
for recharging the aquifer. Many
have said "We need a good tropical


storm?" It didn't take very long af-
ter the 2004 storms for us to get back
to low aquifer levels and low river
levels. At the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District (SRWMD)
meeting last week it was reported
that for the period of April 1st, 2007
to January 31st, 2008, 176 wells had
to be dug deeper because of the low
water table.
There are a lot of ways to use wa-
ter. We know the uses in our home,
farmers may have to irrigate if they
don't get the proper rains, and there
are industrial uses. One of the in-
dustrial uses is putting it out in a
BOTTLE and shipping it out of the
county, state, and/or country. Bottled
Water is a LUXURY item that is not
necessary.
In Gilchrist County we are already
doing our part to the world in provid-
ing BOTTLED WATER. The Coca
Cola Water Bottling plant in North-
east Gilchrist County has a permit to
pump over 1.7 millions gallons a day.
Now another Spring owner just down
the road wants to cash in on their pot
of gold. Blue Springs will be going
to the Gilchrist County Planning and
Zoning meeting next Monday Feb-
ruary 25th (this has been changed
to March 10th at 7 p.m.-Gilchrist
County Journal) to request a Special
Use Permit to BOTTLE WATER.
Lily Springs a short distance away
has applied to SRWMD for a permit
to Bottle water. YIKES have we not
learned anything from our dried up
neighbors? We don't need this in our
rural community.
It's OK if we have plenty of water
we don't have to give it away or sell
it for a small pittance. We don't have
to become the Detroit City of water
bottling. Here is the opportunity that
I'm talking about. Go tell the Plan-
ning and Zoning Commission and the
County Commission what you want
in your neighborhood. Don't let the
people that make money off of bottled
water be the influence that changes
your life for the next 20. years. We
don't need the water depletion, we
don't need another water bottling
plant, we don't need more wells go-
ing dry, we don't need the possibility
of more sink holes, and if none of that
bothers you we don't need hundreds
of trucks added to the already hun-
dreds from the Coke plant on High-
way 340. As citizens WE ALL NEED
TO CONSERVE. Bottled Water is a
waste of our resources. IT'S NOT
ABOUT HOW MUCH WATER WE
HAVE RUNNING BENEATH US,
IT'S ABOUT HOW MUCH WE
CAN SAVE FOR THE FUTURE. *

Springhouse Quilters News

Springhouse Quilters had a very
full house on February 12, the second
monthly meeting of the New Year,
as 54 ladies met at the Springhouse
Quilt Building west of Trenton. The
program for the meeting was provid-
ed by Cindy Ayers, one of the Night
Owl members. She gave some very
interesting tips on how to make the
perfect mitered corner, plus shared
information from her visit to a quilt
show in Sisters, Oregon. Cindy Ay-
ers, along with her friend Beth Davis,
attended the Oregon show 2 years
ago and came back to Trenton all
excited hoping that one day Trenton
might try a quilt show similar to the
Oregon Show.
With help from the Suwannee Val-
ley Quilt Shoppe, the City of Trenton,
the Gilchrist Chamber of Commerce,
Pure Water Wilderness, Springhouse
Quilters and others, Trenton will
be hosting an Antique and Vintage
Quilt Festival on National Quilt
Day, March 15, from 9:00 a.m. to
5:00 p.m. This will be a one-day free
event, open to all visitors. It is hoped
that the visitors coming to Trenton to
view the quilts will appreciate what
Trenton and Gilchrist County have, to
offer along with the quilts that will be
on display.

Nick Turner and ,six boys were out
Tuesday and what a great day we had.
People may wonder why we have so
much to do but it takes a lot of help
to keep our museum looking good.

The required project for this year will
be lap robes for the abused thru An-

not keep the museum as it is without
these boys coming out and working.
Some come who don't know how :to
do much but when they go back they
can say they learned something use-

Now in its fourth and biggest year;
ViVA! features Cajun cuisine, live
Zydeco music, bayou festivities and
auctions of celebrity-decorated ga-
tor art and other autographed items.
Tickets are $125 per guest, and 100
percent of the proceeds support pa-
tient care, services and the many pro-
grams provided by Haven Hospice,
a community hospice offering com-
passion and care when needed most.
Those who attend ViVA! support
community programs that will serve
more than 4,000 patients and fami-
lies in 2008. Funds raised through
special events account for 27 percent
of donations to Haven Hospice, all of
which help pay for unreimbursed pa-
tient care, alternative therapies, grief
support and assistance with commu-
nity resources.
Judi and Davis Rembert are serving
as hosts for ,the second consecutive
year. ViVA! transforms three acres of
the 800-acre Alachua farm they share
with their two sons and their families
into a bayou.
For the Remberts, supporting Ha-
ven Hospice is personal. Her par-
ents, Mary and George Creighton,
both donated to Haven Hospice, and
her mother died in January 2005 at
the Haven Hospice E.T. York Care
Center in Gainesville. "Once you're

Council's mobile irrigation lab, and
other partners to develop water con-
servation strategies.
The District also is working with
cities and counties, as well as com-
mercial and industrial interests, to
solicit input and to coordinate imple-
mentation and enforcement guide-
lines for the restrictions.
Here are some ways citizens can
practice water conservation year-
round. Outdoors: Water lawns and
landscapes no more than two days a
week, before 10 a.m. or after 4 p.m. If
you must wash your vehicle or bathe
your pet, use an automatic shutoff
nozzle on the hose. Use a broom,
not a hose, to clean debris from side-
walks and driveways. Landscape
with drought-tolerant plants.
Indoors: Fix leaks and/or install
water-saving devices on toilets, fau-
cets and showerheads. Wash only
full loads of clothes and dishes; se-
lect the minimum water-volume set-
ting needed per load. Don't leave the
faucet running while brushing teeth,
shaving, or washing dishes.
