Planning commission recommends

denial of water bottling plant


Bell gifted students Rachael and Jaycee Thomas, along with their teacher Debbie Rush, presented a project
board to the planning commission, which detailed the gifted class'study on water. Problem-solving groups
were formed as the students looked at the effects of a water bottling plant.


By Carrie A, Mizell
Despite a staff recommendation for
approval, members of the Gilchrist
County Planning Commission unani-
mously agreed to recommend denial
of a special use permit for a water
bottling plant at Blue Springs.
The vote, which came just 15 min-
utes before midnight on Monday,
was met with thunderous applause,
by a roomful of concerned residents
most of whom live near the CR 340
site and spoke out against the water
bottling plant, .which would pump
660,000 gallons of water out of Blue
Springs each day.
Vice Chairman Michelle Crawford
made the motion for denial based on
the proposed use not being generally
compatible with the uses and struc-
tures on adjacent and nearby proper-
ty. Specifically, Crawford pointed out
safety and lighting issues. Crawford
also said that the necessary public
infrastructure is not available to the
proposed site and that the require-
ments of concurrency management
have not been fulfilled by the pro-
posed use.
Despite applicant Ray E. Thomas'
insistence that it is the property own-
ers right to utilize his/her property to
its highest and best uses, Crawford
said she and Commissioner Roos-
evelt. Stalvey were on the planning
commission, eight years ago when
the Ray family made application for


It has been an honor and pleasure to
serve as your County Commissioner
for District 3 since 1996. I once again
ask for your support and vote as I
seek re-election in 2008.
There have been many changes
in Gilchrist County in the past few
years and I expect to see many more
changes in the near future. Although
growth has slowed in the past few
months, the challenges that we will
face in the near future will be diffi-
cult. The loss of revenue and the need
to still provide the necessary services
to our taxpayers will surely be a chal-
lenge.
I believe that I have the experience
and the knowledge to help our board
make the right decisions for our citi-
zens. I have been very active in my
capacity as county commissioner and
I am always prepared for all issues
that come before our board, because
I have always believed that a well-
informed board commissioner is also
a commissioner that loves and cares
for Gilchrist County. I have strived to
support all county departments and
constitutional officers equally. I have
tried to make sure your tax dollars
are spent wisely and with the public
interest in mind. I support and work
together with our towns and cities on
issues that are common to us all. I
have always been diligent in attend-
ing board meetings, special meetings,
workshops, committee meetings, and
civic meetings. I am very active in
our community and have always
been a strong supporter of our youth.


Gilchrist County's first water bottling
plant at Ginnie Springs.
"That started out as a family opera-
tion too and everything broke lose,"
Crawford said. "Can you tell me that
is not going to happen here?"
In response, Thomas said his cli-
ents could not come up with $25 mil-
lion for construction of the facility on
their own and the reality of the situ-
ation is that the Davis family would
have to partner with someone to build
the water bottling plant.
Thomas did present to the planning
commission and an audience of 200
people.a detailed power point presen-
tation, which indicated that Gilchrist
County would collect annually an es-
timated $378,000 in ad valorem taxes
and $372,000 in intangible taxes from
the water bottling plant. Thomas also
said the water bottling plant would
bring 150 to 185 permanent jobs to
the community with an estimated an-
nual salary of $24,000.
It was Thomas' and principal hy-
drogeologist Stephen Boyes' insis-
tence that the water bottling plant
would produce no significant impact
to the environment, groundwater lev-
els and flows from Blue Springs that
drew skeptic gasps from the audi-
ence.
"Agriculture has been affected in
this county ... I won't say by the wa-
ter bottling plant, but the industry in
the past," said Commissioner Craig


Randy Durden
I have an excellent working relation-
ship with our state representatives
and senators.
I believe that if we, as elected of-
ficials, always remember that as long
as the end results of our actions are
for the benefit of the citizens and tax-
payers of Gilchrist County we can
accomplish the goals needed to be
beneficial to everyone. I will be visit-
ing as many citizens as possible in the
next few months. If you would like
to discuss any issue with me please
call me at home at (386) 935-3256
or my cell phone at (352) 745-0221
or you can email me at rddurden@
windstream.net.
Again, I ask for your support and
vote in the upcoming election.
Thank you,
Randy Durden


Watson prior to seconding Crawford's
motion. "I know you can't forsee the
future, but I have trouble reconciling
this won't [affect agriculture] in the
future."
The unanimous denial by the plan-
ning commission went against a staff
recommendation presented by Coun-
ty Planner Taylor Brown who said the
positive impacts of the proposal are
easy to see In that the development
will increase local tax revenues.
Renee Welton and Albert Rice Jr.
were unimpressed with what Thomas
described as "economic opportunity
for Gilchrist County." Both Welton
and Rice live near the proposed Blue
Springs site and described numerous
conversations they have had with lost:
tractor-trailer drivers looking for the
Coca Cola water bottling plant.
"Imagine living between two wa-
ter bottling plants," Welton said. "I
frequently see confused semi drivers
who can't believe a water bottling
plant has been put in such a rural
area."
Rice said his experience with a lost
tractor-trailer-driver came when the
driver was parked in the middle of the
highway because he could not read a
sign printed in English that pointed to
the water bottling plant.
Ultimately, Chairman Alan Mikell
read Gilchrist County's vision state-
ment.

Lori Harrison, 13, took an emo-
tional win at the 56th annual Suwan-
nee River Fair on Saturday, March 8.
Lori's two and a half year old Jersey
dairy cow, Buttercup, was awarded
Grand Champion Dairy Cow. She
also placed fifth in the dairy show-
manship.
Buttercup and Lori have been trav-
eling around the state competing in
various fairs. The most recent was
the Florida State Fair in Tampa. After
the Suwannee River Fair they will be
heading to Green Cove Springs to the
Clay County Fair.
Lori is an active member of the
Trenton Jr. FFA Chapter and treasur-
er for Udderly Perfect 4-H Club. She
competes with her brother Joshua
who is 10 years old. Joshua and Lori
both show Jersey dairy cows; in fact
the only two Jerseys that were entered
in the fair belonged to the Harrison
family. A majority of the dairy cows
entered in fairs and youth shows are
holsteins.
Buttercup is known for her won-
derfully gentle personality and sweet
disposition. Buttercup had her first
calf, a bull calf named Tiger, in De-
cember of 2008. Since that time Lori
has learned a great deal more about
her project including learning to milk


Robert Roux announces

candidacy for sheriff


Citizens of Gilchrist County:
It is both an honor and a privilege
to announce my candidacy for Sher-
iff of Gilchrist County. My name is
Robert Roux, Jr. I have been a resi-
dent of Gilchrist for 25 years and
I'm a 1985 graduate of Trenton High
School. I have 23 years of full time
law enforcement experience and have
served in the United States Army Re-
serve for 8 years as a military police
officer/NBC Defense Specialist. I
proudly served in the Gulf War/Des-
ert Shield and Desert Storm.
I began my law enforcement career
in the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice (1986-87) as a dispatcher/cor-
rectional officer and have continued
to further my experience in law en-
forcement as a State Trooper with
the Florida Highway Patrol (1987-
current). My experience includes 17
years of drug interdiction, working
with other agencies such as DEA,
FBI, FDLE, and other sheriff's de-
partments in drug and other criminal
investigations as well as asset forfei-
ture seizures throughout the state.
I have been married to Sherry
(Trail) Roux for 21 years. We have
three children, Tray, Bailey and Kai-
ley and are extremely proud to be.
raising them in Gilchrist County.
In my leisure time, I am involved
in community activities for the youth.
In the past I have served as a football
commissioner and coach for Suwan-
nee Valley Youth League for baseball
and football. I volunteer as an assis-
tant 4-H leader, and am actively in-


volved in school activities.
I have worked towards the goal of
running for sheriff for over 20 years,
constantly striving to further my
knowledge and experience. If elected,
I will not take the job of sheriff light-
ly. I will use my experience and law
enforcement knowledge to its fullest
extent to fulfill the job. If elected, my
mission is to provide the utmost pro-
fessional and the highest degree of
law enforcement. I will be commit-
ted to the prevention of crime and the
protection of all constitutional rights
for all citizens of Gilchrist County. I
will work diligently and profession-
.ally with all law enforcement officers
and agencies, and most importantly
the citizens to assure that Gilchrist
County is a safe place to live.
I look forward to meeting you

Sinkhole falls

in onCR 307
By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County Road Depart-
ment's work-week did not end Friday
afternoon at 5 as drenching rainfall
soaked the county knocking down
trees and opening up a 13-foot deep
sinkhole on CR 307.
According to Billy Cannon, as-
sistant superintendent of the road
department, a large sinkhole was
reported just after 5 p.m. on Friday
one-quarter of a mile south of the
CR 344/CR 307 intersection. The
sinkhole took in two to three feet of
ground beneath the edge of the high-
way. Road department officials im-
mediately closed the highway so they
could stabilize the sinkhole by filling
it with large boulders and asphalt.
Cannon explained that it took sev-
eral hours to stabilize the sinkhole be-
cause of heavy rainfall, which caused
the hole to continue sinking deeper.
The road department employees fi-
nally called it a night at midnight once
the sinkhole was stabilized. Cannon
said they plan to continue monitoring
the hole throughout the week.
Road department employees were
called on throughout the day Satur-
day to remove fallen trees and clean
off obstructed roadways, Cannon
said.
Local watermelon growers report-
ed minimal wind damage to the plas-
tic they had laid prior to planting.

SWell, the Gilchrist County Planning
Commission listened to the people re-
Ssiding in northeast Gilchrist County
Sas they told the board that one water
bottling plant has impacted their lives
Enough, we don't need two.
Residents of the Blue Springs and
Ginnie Springs area told the five
member board that the truck traffic,
the decline of the river and the fact
that people trying to live and sleep
around the 24-hour a day production
facility have no peace and quiet at
all.
The board identified that the pro-
Sposed use would not be compatible
and in harmony with the A-2 uses
and structures on adjacent and nearby
properties.
Residents that live in the north-
eastern portion of the county that use
CR 340 as their main transportation
route explained that semi truck traf-
fic going to the present water bottling
Facility is a real concern. These truck
* drivers sometimes get lost and when
They try to turn around, their truck
blocks the highway and poses a real
traffic problem.
The estimated 250 people attend-
ing the public meeting were a mixed
group of people living in the county
Sand those living across the Santa Fe
SRiver There were a few people that
Sdid actually speak in favor of the
. proposed water bottling plant. These
a people have been involved with the
, present water bottling facility in
monitoring and providing informa-
tion involving the karst environment.
SOther people also spoke that if the

proposed application, then the county
should receive a certain amount of
revenue over and above the estimated
$750,000 in ad valorem and tangible
taxes.
I am afraid in the future, the water
that passes through Gilchrist County
will be redirected to greater popula-
tion centers in south Florida. At that
time we probably won't even get any
taxes or jobs by this action that will
be done by the Florida Governor and
Legislature.
We who have lived in this rural
area have always tried to take care
and preserve our way of life. We have
done thht so well that folks from cen-
tral and south Florida have experi-
enced our greener pastures, and have
now moved to this area.
Students representing the gifted
class at Bell Elementary School gave
a presentation in support of preserv-
ing our environment and that they
have been taught to always do things
right to preserve their agricultural
heritage. These students did a good
job representing the generations of
tomorrow.
I think the board did a good job
identifying what is best for Gilchrist
County at this time. I just hope that
eventually a good clean industry will
find their way to this area. The need
for additional revenue will soon be
ever so clear.
I don't agree with the people in the
meeting that are in favor of the coun-
ty giving these recreational parks that
line the Santa Fe River tax benefits in
order to support an increased level of
nature tourism.

is a white collared shirt, dark tie, dark

or 4-H emblem affixed on shirt. What
is dark pants? Are they blue, black or
white? Friday night, children were
turned away from judging because
they were wearing blue jeans but on
Saturday members showed rabbits
in blue jeans and during the dairy
judging contest some members had
on white pants. My concern is we
need to treat every contestant and

Oak Tree Landing
I would like to take this opportuni-
ty to comment on an article regarding
the proposed Oak Tree Landing proj-
ect which appeared in the March 6,
2008 issue of the Gainesville Sun. I
want to state that I have no monetary
or other interest in this project except
for the positive impact it could have
for Gilchrist County taxpayers.
It would appear from a statement
made by the Gilchrist County Plan-
ning Director, Taylor Brown, the
greatest negative concern is the
project's distance from infrastructure
and emergency services. Rather than
focusing on the negatives, I would
prefer to focus on the benefits of such
a project, the primary one being an
expanded tax base.
In light of the doubling of the
homestead exemption, more homes
will be exempt from property taxes
than at present and revenue to the
county will be decreased. The vast
majority of homeowners in Gilchrist
County payno property tax and the
burden of support falls on a few. If
this new development is built, and is
primarily a second-home community,
the homes would not fall under the
homestead exemption and would be
taxed for full assessment. The permit,
impact, and inspection fees would
add greatly to the monies collected
by the county.
Besides the additional tax revenue
we should look at job opportunities,
namely building and grounds mainte-
nance, golf course maintenance, air-
port services, and restaurant and shop
employees.
Schools would be minimally im-
pacted because these would be part-
time residents. Roads within the proj-
ect would be paved and require little.
maintenance, unlike graded roads
which require constant care. With a
huge increase in collected property
taxes, money would be available for
more deputies and emergency per-
sonnel, creating even more jobs
Even with a project of this size,
Gilchrist County can maintain the
rural atmosphere which is valued by
its present residents. Growth is inevi-


Our Year Of Political Turmoil
(Kent Heaton)


e engraved upon the
time. Some describe
I. There is so much
i, the affairs of State,
continues and moral


values that seem to have lost any backbone at all.
Everyone has an opinion about the Presidential race. In
not too many months a new President will be selected.
How will the country fare?
The fisherman apostle Peter was a tempestuous'
character filled with vim and vigor. He is renowned for
his impetuous spirit that caused the Lord concern at times
and yet found a source of strength for the Savior. Simon
had many challenges to overcome from the reading of the
gospels and the Acts. One cannot help but be moved by
the change that takes place in the reading of Peter's
epistles. He is a different man there. Found within the
words of his first epistle, Peter proclaims, "Honor all
people, love the brotherhood, fear God, honor the king"
(1 Peter 2:17).
A simple four-point lesson of being at peace with all
men (Hebrews 12:14) shows the relationship with
humanity, the body of Christ, the Godhead and the
government. The remarkable admonition of this verse is
the consideration of giving honor to the king. While the
date of 1 Peter is not determined with a complete
authority, "numerous incidental and inferential
references in the book fix the date within reasonably
well defined limits ... We may, therefore, with
reasonable probability, fix the date of the epistle on the
eve of the Neronian persecution." (Woods, Guy N., A


Commentary on the Epistles of Peter, ppl6,17.).
Nero's rule is often associated with tyranny and
extravagance. Space does not permit a discourse on the
immoral, depraved, turbulent, corrupt world of the
political atmosphere of Peter's day. Just one name will
sum it up: Nero. The early Christians lived in this type of
world. When reading the epistle from the apostle of
Christ, their hearts must have ached at the knowledge that
honor was to be given to such a man as Nero. Adam
Clarke said of this passage, "Pay that respect to the
emperor which his high authority requires, knowing that
civil power is of God; that the authority with which he, in
the course of his providence, has invested him, must be
respected in order to its being obeyed; and that if the man
be even bad, and as a man be worthy of no reverence, yet
he should be respected on account of his office. "
The apostle Paul wrote, "I urge that entreaties and
prayers, petitions and thanksgivings, be made on behalf
of all men, for kings and all who are in authority, so that
we may lead a tranquil and quiet life in all godliness and
dignity" (1 Timothy 2:1-2). This is not a year of political
turmoil; this is a year of devoted prayer for those who will
be in authority so that gospel will continue to have free
course. Next year when a new President enters the Oval
Office, those same prayers must be offered in respect and
honor no matter our political slant or view. Christians
are in the world but not of the world. We are to stand
above the rabble of dissent that disrespects those in
authority (Romans 13:1-7). Just think ... we could be
living in the time of Nero ... and then what?


I was a dispatcher for 10 years.
If you had to vote for a presiden-
tial candidate now, who would it
be? John McCain. I feel like he has
given his life for this country as a
Vietnam POW and I think he will
continue to do so.

table in this part of Florida, and by
choosing development that will en-
hance the quality of life, retain a rural
atmosphere, and provide additional
funding for necessary services, the
Gilchrist County Commissioners and
the Planning Board should look at the
positive aspects of this development
and approve Oak Tree Landing.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


Josie Mikell NesSmith, born December 26, 1901, a Gilchrist County


homemaker and quilter.
Long before there was a quilt show
or quilt festival in the state of Florida
Josie Mikell was born on December
26, 1901 to her parents Sam and An-
nie Wilkerson Mikell who lived near
Morriston at the time. The family
soon moved to an area of Alachua
County which would soon become
Gilchrist County. In 1923 Josie mar-
ried Jaiiies' "Jim" NesSmith who
moved here from Providence, Flor-
ida. They moved to the farming area
along county road 113 near where
it meets County Road 334 between
Trenton and Hart Springs when their
youngest son Chub was a boy. The
couple had four sons: James Barry
NesSmith, Vasco Gray NesSmith,
Alton Austin NesSmith and Harvell
Heyward "Chub" NesSmith.
Ms. Josie spent her life on the fam-
ily farm where she was a homemaker.
Her family was always her number
one priority and she loved cooking
and sewing. Through the years she
made quilts for her grandchildren.
Her granddaughter Angie Nes-
Smith McKenzie is a good friend
of mine and when her son brought
the quilt into the Journal this week I
could not believe how sweet it was.
Through the years I've heard a lot
about Angie's Granny; about how
special she was. In fact Angie and her
husband Gary recently built a home
where Josie's house once stood. Their
new house was designed to look as
near Granny's farm house as possible
right down to the brick columns out
front on the porch.
When I removed the quilt from its
bag and ran my hand across the feathi-
er soft fine wale corduroy Sunbonnet
Sues which Granny had appliqued
on to the muslin background I was
taken aback by this special quilt. This
quilt was made by a pioneer lady who
saw so many changes in her lifetime.


I
!


She witnessed Gilchrist County be-
coming the last county established
in the state in 1925, she raised four
boys which I'm sure was a challenge.
But yet as the years passed she had
time to spend with her grandchildren.
Angie especially had a close relation-
ship with her Granny because she
lived next door.
'The golden yellow Sunibonhet Sue
quilt which was made by Granny
NesSmith for Sheila NesSmith Pin-
ner of Cross City when Sheila was
a child. It will be one of over 200
quilts displayed in Trenton on Satur-
day, March 15 at the Suwannee River
Quilt Festival. This special quilt will
be hanging from the front of the
Gilchrist County Journal building lo-
cated at 207 North Main Street.
If you love quilts new or old don't
miss this special festival. Come out
and see the many special quilts made
by our pioneer grandmothers.

Two mulch plant applications

on March 24 Planning agenda
James Johnson will present two applications for a special use permit for
a mulch plant in the March 24, Planning Commission meeting. These ap-
plications will be presented at the same time to give the Planning Com-
mission an opportunity to review both locations. These applications: SUP
08-03 involving the SR 47 and CR 232 site and SUP 08-05 involving an
industrial-zoned parcel at SR 26 and CR 313 will be reviewed and a deci-
sion is expected to be made in this meeting.

THS cafeteria burglarized Thursday i
By Carrie A. Mizell .-
Trenton High School's cafeteria was broken into last week and $200 cash -- -
was stolen in the latest in a string of vandalisms on-campus.
School cafeteria employees arrived at work early Thursday morning and
noticed the cafeteria had been burglarized late Wednesday night or early
Thursday morning.
Upon further investigation of the crime scene by Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office deputies and investigators, damage to the cafeteria was estimated at
$700 and $200 in cash was stolen.
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office and the Gilchrist County School
Board are imploring anyone who may have any information concerning this
case to please call the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office at (352) 463-3410 or
the School Safety Hotline 1-800-777-2728.

character. And with the display of
positive character we can be assured
we'll have a great day!
The individual character value for
this month fits into a very special cat-
egory. It is called "compassion," and
lets us know when to stop and help,
when to listen when others want to
talk, helps us to see that it really is
not hard to give our resources to help
those in need. Compassion places us
in the position where we can invest
whatever.is necessary to heal the hurt
of others.
Sympathy is seeing someone's
pain. Empathy is feeling someone's
pain. Compassion is helping; com-
passion does something about it. It is
active.
During this present school year,
and as many "look sees" take place
each month, while local high school
students are recommended by their
peers, a delightful young lady was
chosen who wears the spirit of com-
passion as part of her nature. Miss
Kara Smith, a senior at Bell High
School, is a native of Gilchrist Coun-
ty, the second of two daughters to
Billy and Michelle Smith, owners
of Smith's Furniture Store in Cross
City. Kara has spent all of her school
years here and has been a cheerleader
since middle school. She presently
serves as the historian for the HOSA
club. (Health Occupation Students of
Amenica)
"'During the interview, Kara referred
to the fact that "while pursuing some-


Kara Smith
thing good, the sacrifices made to
help others gives great rewards." As
a Christian, and a member of Priscil-
la Baptist Church, her persuasion is
that "when showing compassion one
must also ask for God's guidance."
Recently, Kara was greatly encour-
aged by taking part in fund-raising
at her church for Christian Crisis
Pregnancy Centers, sponsored by the
Southern Baptist Convention. This
annual project helps unwed mothers
who plan on giving their baby up for
adoption. Miss Smith related -how
exhibiting compassion has taught her
"helping others is always the right
thing to do."
So, once again we are given hope
for the future in the giftings and
personality of young people in our
county who demonstrate that positive
character is doing the right thing re-
gardless of what others say or do.

A card of thanks
On February 14, 2008 a group of young men came to my property and did
some major cleaning up for me. They were from ALERT Academy in Texas.
Character Council of Gilchrist County set up this project and was there to
oversee it. It was carried out in an excellent manner. I would like to thank
everyone in Gilchrist County that contributed to this very worthwhile project.
Thanks once again and keep up the good work.
Special thanks to Diane Rondelet, Mitchell Gentry, and Carl Cromwell for
their assistance.

Budget cuts prompt new measures for

State Attorney Bill Cervone


State Attorney Bill Cervone, Rotarian Betty Ramey, and Trenton Ro-
tary Club President John Frazier,


By Carrie A. Mizell
While in Trenton on Monday, State
Attorney Bill Cervone told Trenton
Rotarians his office is striving to be-
come more efficient in the face of
state budget cuts.
As state attorney for the eighth
judicial circuit, Cervone frequently
travels to Tallahassee while serving
as vice president of the Florida Pros-
ecuting Attorneys Association.
"The financial situation in Talla-
hassee is as dire as it seems," Cer-
vone said.
In June 2007, Cervone said his
office and other state agencies were
told to be cautious with their finances
because projections showed an eco-
nomic slowdown.
"Tallahassee has an interesting ap-
proach," Cervone said. "Anything
that smells like a new tax is not some-
thing their going to do. There will be
no new tax initiative."
According to Cervone, the Florida
Legislature has taken back six per-
cent of state agencies' budgets and
95 percent of his office's budget is
salaries.
"The governor projects another six
to eight percent will be on the cutting
block in 2008-2009," Cervone said.
An obvious solution in making up


for the shortfall in revenue is adjust-
ing personnel. Cervone said he has
not filled nine positions within his
office that have become vacant over
the last year.
"People in Gilchrist County will
not see a difference in services be-
cause the state attorney's office is a
one man show in Gilchrist County ...
Gilchrist County may be at an advan-
tage," Cervone said.
Sooner or later Assistant State At-
torney Robert Willis may have to
spend some time not only in Gilchrist
County, but also in neighboring coun-
ties due to a shortage in manpower.
Cervone said he has no plans to
terminate positions within his office.
Another growing challenge for the
state attorney is dealing with an over-
whelming volume of paperwork.
"My office has been set on a pro-
gram that will make it as close to pa-
perless as possible," Cervone said.
In January 2008 Cervone oversaw
that the juvenile division in Alachua
County began entering every case file
in the office to computer databases.
In 2009 Cervone hopes to add traffic
cases and later felony level cases to
computers.
Though he admitted to not being
a computer guru, Cervone said he

Quilt Appraiser to be at
Quilt Festival in Trenton
on Saturday
Anyone wishing to have their an-
tique or even a new quilt appraised
may do so by bringing it to the Su-
wannee Valley Quilt Festival in Tren-
ton on Saturday, March 15. The festi-
val will have certified quilt appraiser
and quilt historian, Brenda M. Kalata
in attendance to appraise and date
quilts. Ms. Kalata will be set up at the
historic Trenton Depot.
Born in Bethlehem, Penn., Brenda
Kalata comes from a long line of
skilled needle women. Her paternal
great-grandmother and grandmother
were quilters using the patterns and
skills typical of Pennsylvania Dutch
quilters. The women on her maternal
side made bobbin lace, crocheted and
embroidered blouses, skirts, table-
cloths and doll clothes.
Brenda made her first quilt at the
age of 7 on a toy Singer machine and
has been quilting ever since. Her love
of quilts prompted her and her friend,
Vicki Derenick, to found a NQA
chapter in 1983, based in Quaker-
town, Penn. The chapter was chosen
to host the 1987 Annual NQA Quilt
Show in Easton, Penn, a great honor
for the group.
Brenda teaches hand quilt making
techniques, has authored a manual
for beginning quilters, demonstrat-
ed the art of hand quilting widely
throughout Pennsylvania and Flori-
da, done extensive research on Red
Cross Quilts from the World War I
era, restored many wonderful antique
quilts, and lectures and gives "trunk
shows" using quilts from her large
personal collection, on a variety of
quilt related topics.
Her passion for, and study of, an-
tique and vintage quilts and fabrics
has led her to becoming a well-known
quilt historian and quilt appraiser.
Married since 1966, and the moth-
er of four, she and her husband, Andy,
currently live for most of the year on
beautiful Magnolia Avenue across
from the Fountain of Youth.
The festival will be located 'rio
Main Street in Trenton. The festi-
val headquarters will be the Trenton
Train Depot. Several collections of
quilts will be displayed at the depot
including redwork quilts and feed-
sack quilts.
Everyone is invited to come out
and spend the day in Trenton enjoy-
ing the festival which will be held on
National Quilt Day, March 15.

Horses grazing in downtown Trenton?


r a: ;. _L., .-e" *-'4 .

Those passing through Trenton last Thursday may have been surprised to see
several horses on a grass lot between Dr. Cox's office and the Juvenile Justice
office. The horses belonged to Darolyn J. Butler and her daughter Cecilia
Butler Stasiuk of Humble, Texas. The ladies were on their way to Dunnellon
to participate in the Fun In The Sun Endurance Ride when Cecilia had a
problem with a tooth. While traveling through Florida on the interstate they
started calling dentist offices trying to find one who would see a patient im-
mediately. They called Dr. Cox's office and the dentist there agreed to help
Cecilia. After an hour the horses, who were hauled over 1000 miles, were
loaded back up in their trailer and hauled to Dunnellon.

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. Ifyou feel tlhe
fonn is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way,
the form MUST be returned. Failure 'to receive a iPersonal
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 oil January I of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
I) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April I' we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file atn accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree wilh the assessed value thai apllears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each )yeur?
A. Call this ollice or e iiLn ani d discuss Ile master with us. II
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than tihe
actual fair market value of your properly. \c e will iVelcoie tile
opportunity to review all the pertinent filcts.
Q. Wiat if I buy or sell an existing business during the year -
Who is responsible for the taxes?
A. T[he new owner is responsible, however if there is
insullicient property to satisfy the taxes due, tile owner on
January I would be responsible for tile difference. Most title
companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your reactor, attorney or
closing agent to avoid problems in this area.

equipment that may have been "Physically Removed".

If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule
that identities each piece of equipment, attach it to your
complete return.
Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as
last year".

assets since depreciation on each item may vary.

Sally Martin and Kelle Roesner who
were joined on stage by severall en-

Last summer, several members of Gilchrist County's Elementary School Reform Team attended a confer-
ence in Washington, D.C. that armed them with powerful information to "reform" elementary education here in
Gilchrist County in allowing them to strive to be World Class. This effort came after the "No Child Left Behind"
Act mandated changes to be made in curricula across the country.
Teachers and administrators on the team learned new initiatives to be more effective in several critical areas.
There are three smaller teams inside the larger one: the Reform Team, the Response to Intervention (RTI) team
and the Academic team. Teachers will begin the task of Curriculum Mapping beginning in April. This will allow
the teachers the opportunity to align the State Standards to the curriculum and ensure each standard pertaining to
each grade level is being taught and monitored.
The RTI Team has been attending both state and local training preparing for this summer when the team will
pass along their knowledge on interventions for struggling students to all the teachers at the elementary level. The
Academic Team is made up of one teacher per grade level at each elementary school. This team works with all
teachers to give them a voice in this reform effort, to enhance and build on our elementary programs in Gilchrist
County.
Wendy O'Steen, Director of Elementary Education for the school board, stated that the reform is an ongoing
process that needs to be carefully implemented and monitored by all teachers and administration. The school
board members expressed appreciation for the team's hard work and dedication to the great students of Gilchrist
County.

The Tigers
by Brandon McElroy
SThe Tigers have learned this season
o take one day at a time as the rain
Seems to be deciding when it wants
the Tigers to play. If something could
go wrong this season, it has: rain, in-
uiries and suspensions.
The first game this week kicked
off in Hawthorne for the final regular
season matchup between Trenton and
Hawthorne. The Tigers werit prow-
lin' into Hawthorne seeking another
district win. Knowing that the Hor-
nets weren't going to just lie down
nd roll over, Kyle Feather brought
is lunch pail and went to work for
the Tigers on defense. In six innings
.itched, Feather had six strikeouts
tnd just one walk. Feather and the
Iigers' impenetrable defense were a
major reason why the Tigers pulled
this one out. Colby Perryman's
anxiety to get out on the field with
Lis teammates was put to rest as he
played his first game back from an
injury and contributed by driving in
C2 RBIs. The Hornets pitching was a
little off target allowing 13 walks so
on-base percentage was important in
this game. The Tigers walked away


go 1-1 this week; 5-2 overall


from this game with a final score of
16 to 4 and the satisfaction of going
undefeated against Hawthorne in the
regular season.
Saturday night's game was played
not only for another district win, but
for dignity, pride and revenge because












this was the team that stole the Tigers'
District Championship last season:
the Branford Bucs. As the cold front
rolled in, the Tigers realized that their
perfect league record was at hand.
Branford was also playing to keep
their undefeated league record with-
out blemish. Both teams got off to a
slow start. However, the Bucs took

an early lead on the Tigers and were
able to maintain that lead. By the time
the Tigers decided to play like they
knew how to play, it was the 7th in-
ning and entirely too late. The Tigers
were only able to score 4 runs and 3
of those 4 came from Justin Alvarez.
Also, Andy Jones added another 9
strikeouts to his total of 41. The cold
settled in on the field and really took a
toll on the Tigers as a whole. Playing
on a Saturday isn't a common ven-
ture for the Tigers. A combination of
cold weather and errors, along with a
few questionable calls from the um-
pires, caused the Tigers to fall short
of their goal: undefeated conference
play. This loss puts the Tigers at a 4-
1 league record. The Tigers still have
7 conference games left to play this
season with the intentions of winning
all of them. This loss will be a tough
one to swallow, but will give the Ti-
gers a reason to refocus, regroup, and
come back stronger than ever. This
loss will be a tough one to swallow,
but will give the Tigers something
to build and look back on when they
lose focus; as Coach Tommy Malloy
says, "Those who won't be beat can't
be beat," The final score of this game
was your Trenton Tigers 4 and the
Branford Bucs 5.
The Tigers take on the Lafayette
Hornets this week for the first time,
weather permitting, on Thursday, the
13th. Also, Friday the 14th part two
of the Tigers vs. Bulldogs rivalry
game is set to take place in the jungle
at 8:30!
After you grab a bite to eat at the
Wild Beast Feast, plan to come and
watch this inner county rival game
crank up!

American Red Cross
presents CPR-A-THON
2008
Everyone can be an Everyday Hero
by knowing how to Save a Life.
March is National Red Cross
Month and to celebrate the North
Central Florida Chapter, along with
the Hilton UF Conference Center
and K Country Radio, will be hosting
CPR-A-THON 2008.
Cardiac arrest is the leading cause
of death for both men and women in
United States and research has shown
that 75% of all out-of-hospital car-
diac arrests occur in the home. Of
the 1.25 million heart attacks in the
United States each year, 40% result
in death.
More than 3,000 people die each
year as a result of choking. With
these sobering statistics, it becomes
more apparent that having everyday
heroes trained in CPR is vitally im-
portant.
The North Central Florida Chap-
ter CPR-A-THON 2008 will provide
hands-on skills and training, which

A celebration of Dr. Stuss' birthday
Mrs. Welbers' class celebrated Dr. Seuss last week.
Over the week we read many books by Dr. Seuss, did some Dr. Seuss activities, and learned many interesting
things about Dr. Seuss. We made hats and bow ties and dressed up like The Cat in the Hat. We learned a lot about
rhyming from Dr. Seuss.
On Friday, we read the book, Green Eggs and Ham. Afterwards, the class prepared our own green eggs and ham.
We ate up and everyone enjoyed the experience!

Dr. Seuss books, and ate green eggs and ham. We had a fun day all about Dr. Seuss.

Chamber of Commerce
update
The Lighthouse Restaurant was
the place for many of our people to
gather over a great meal to recognize
and honor those that have been so
helpful throughout the past year. The
support and helping hands that help
mold and shape our communities in
which we work, live and play and the
many accomplishments simply can-
not be made without everyone work-
ing together. We are most fortunate
to have those businesses and individ-
uals that help make all of these things
possible.
Our annual banquet was held
Thursday, February 22nd at which
time we honored the CFG (Cruising
for Grins) Car Club as the Volunteer
Organization of the Year for bringing
back the Classic Car Show. They did
a magnificent job in bringing almost
a 100 cars for display at the Festival
of Lights in December. Russ and Val
Short are the ones that really put out
efforts to make this happen. Unfor-


tunately they were not able to attend
the banquet.
Captain Tony Cruse of the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Department was se-
lected as the Volunteer of the Year.
He was totally surprised that he was
the selected for this honor. Tony has
helped the Christmas Boat Parade
every year by putting the Gilchrist
County Rescue Boat in the Suwannee
River to assist with the Yellow Rub-
ber Ducky Race and also the Boat Pa-
rade in the evening, to help assure the
safety of all involved. Thanks Tony
for a great service.
Donna Creamer of Pure Water Wil-
derness accepted the plaque present-
ed to Pure Water Wilderness as the
Non-Profit Organization of the Year
award. This organization has helped
the Tri-County area tremendously
through much advertising in many
magazines, attending many work-
shops, and working with the many
chambers to coordinate activities
without conflicting with each other.
She also meets and greets many peo-
ple at the 1-75 Welcome Center and
gives out much information to poten-
tial visitors. She is currently working
with the chambers to sponsor another
Tourism Summit workshop in Au-
gust that will involve many tourism
related services and also helping with
a Tri-County Area Map dedicated to
tourism related businesses and attrac-
tions. Information has been mailed
out to many of you about this project.

a nice report on how Progress Energy
is working to bring about the new
nuclear plant, which will be located

great supporter of many events in the
area and works toward helping build
community relations.
Also honored at the banquet was
The City of Fanning Springs for their

What is Trust?
TRUST is a word that I take seriously! I remember a time
when a man's word and a handshake were all that was needed
to believe in him. I want the citizens of Gilchrist County to
know that I am that type of man. You can TRUST that I will
always do what's best for Gilchrist County. It is important to
me, for the citizens to be able to TRUST that their law
enforcement officers are providing the highest level of COMMITMENT, TRUST, and
DEDICATION to all the citizens of Gilchrist County.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of the citizens who came out and talked with
me this past weekend at the Osceola Community Center and Cruse Community Center.
This weekend, March 15th, I will be at the Leggett Community Center from 10am-12pm and
at the Osteen Community Center from 3pm 5pm. We will be serving light refreshments.
Come out and let me talk with you about the difference I can make in Gilchrist County.

Elaine Nemeth's musical wall hanging hits a high note in my book and
I'm sure it will score big time for the receiver of this piece of work.


On Wednesday, March 5th, thirteen
Joyful Hearts met to exchange ideas,
news of loved ones and friends, reci-
pes and idle chit-chat.
Several of our ladies have been out
for a spell and we are looking for-
ward to them making an appearance
at our next meeting which will be on
Wednesday, March 19th. That will be
our Spring Fling party so don't forget
to bring a light and lively finger food
to share.
During announcements, thank
you's were read from the animal shel-
ter for the crate beds and from the Tri-
County Nursing Home for the Valen-
tine favors. Elaine Nemeth shared in-
formation about quilt shows out and
about and reminded everyone of the
up-coming road trip to Amygene's in
Lake City on Friday the 14th. We will
meet at the fire station at 9:30 a.m.
It's my understanding that we will
have lunch at the 'Ole Times Country
Buffet in the mall. My advice...wear
pants with an elastic waist band and
a big sloppy shirt because the food is


oh so good.
Along with quilting, knitting, cro-
cheting, embroidering, and Swedish
weaving, we managed to finish and
fill the seventy Easter baskets for the
Tri-County Nursing Home.
Cathy Strom and all her bunny
helpers decorated the meeting room
from top to bottom with Spring
and Easter decorations. It sure put
a spring in our step and made your
mouth water for good old-fashioned
jelly beans.
At last it was time to set aside
our works in progress and get in
our friendship circle and say grace.
We had a turkey, dressing and broc-
coli casserole, tart tangy cranberries,
gravy, hot biscuits and of course ice
cream sundaes.
Lera Townsend has fallen and
broken her hip. It seems the surgery

there six to eight weeks.
Paulene Martin is there as well, and
seems to be getting stronger. I'm sure
both would enjoy cards and visits.
To say the weather has been down
right crazy is the understatement of
the year. I mean really, 820 one day
and 28 a couple of days later...what's
up with that?
The best comment on the weather
that I've heard came from one of my
third graders in the after school pro-
gram. He came in and declared in no
uncertain terms..."Miss Marilyn, I'm
sick and tired of this shake and bake
weather." To which I replied, "shake
and bake weather?" "Yes ma'am,"
he said, "you shake when you go out
in the morning and you bake in the
afternoon." That's the best one I've
heard in a long while but like they
say...out of the mouths of babes.

net and rug making as well as the
quilt bed turning. There will be 20
different quilts used for the bed turn-
ing with a special Quilt Study Group

Springhouse members are serv-
ing as hostesses for the festival and

about the different groupings. The
festival will begin at 9:00 AM on

play only for the one day. The festi-
val is free to the public.

Insure your brand new car with MetLife Auto & Home, and you would be
covered for its replacement cost for one year or 15,000 miles, whichever
came first.*
Other insurers depreciate the value of your new car 15 percent or more-we
don't. So, if you got into an accident and totaled your new car, we would
replace it. Now, that's insurance.

OILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOSTED

Dear Gilchrist County Fair Booster,

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

Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund raise
process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to 2079
75thAve, Bell, Fl 32619. Please give Ronnie a call at 352-463-6143 or Terry 352-494-4
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 yeai

Sincerely,




Ronnie Smith & Terry Parrish
