A gasoline service station and re-

tablishments, convenience store and
restaurant could soon be built at the
southwest comer of the intersection
of State Road 47 and County Road

Switzerland man dies while

cave diving at Ginnie Springs


By Carrie A. Mizell
The body of a 36-year-old Swit-
zerland man who was on vacation at
Ginnie Springs was pulled from the
interior of a cave last week.
A certified diver, Mark Fyvie, ar-
ried at Ginnie Springs in northeast
Gilchrist County on Monday, March
10 after traveling from his home in
Switzerland for a much anticipated
vacation.'

Around noon Fyvie opted to go
diving alone. He started his cave dive
at the Devils Eye using a rebreath-
ing system, which allows a diver to
stay underwater for a longer period
of time.
At 9 p.m. Corey Mearns, who is
also a certified cave diver, entered the
water in search of Fyvie who had not
surfaced from his dive.
According to the Investigator Dan-
iel Slaughter of the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, Mearns surfaced at
10:39 p.m. and said he had found
Fyvie deceased. Fyvie's body was
found approximately 3,800 feet into
the cave system from the point he en-
tered it.
Due to darkness and safety con-
cerns for the recovery team it was
decided to wait until the following
morning to remove the body from the
cave system.
On Tuesday, March 12 the body
was removed from the cave system
and transported to the Gainesville
Medical Examiners Office.
The death is still under investiga-
tion by the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office.
According to Captain Tony Cruse
of the. Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice, two to three divers are found
deceased inside cave systems in Gil-
christ County each year. In 2007,
only one certified diver died while
cave diving in Gilchrist County's nu-
merous spring systems.

Hea\\ rains and gusts ind did
not dampen the spirits of 1.500 hun-
gr people who gathered beneath a
covered arena to dine on a variety of
game at the Education Foundation of
Gilchrist County's 15th Annual Wild
Beast Feast on Friday night.
According to Julie Thomas. presi-
dent of the Education Foundation
of Gilchrist Count.. a total of mon-
ies raised at the annual e\ent had not
been determined at press time be-
cause financial donations were still
coming in on Monday morning. All
monies raised will be used for schol-
arships for graduating seniors at Bell
High School and Trenton Middle
High School.
"Once again, Gilchrist County
came through with amazing support
for our youth," Thomas said. "Rain
was not a factor in the attendance on
Friday night. Ms. Suzy is such a gra-
cious hostess and everyone left with
their tummies full and their wild ap-
petites satisfied."
In 2007 the. Education Founda-
tion gave out $92,000 in scholarship
funds to high school seniors. This
year the number of students apply-
ing for Education Foundation schol-
arships has risen to 122 applicants,
therefore nearly $100,000 will need
to be raised this spring.


With help from Bell High School and Trenton Middle High School students, Patsy Turnerand Mary Ann
Johnson poured multiple glasses of sweet tea Friday night at the Wild Beast Feast.


Each year the Wild Beast Feast
serves as the Education Foundation's
primary fundraiser, drawing a crowd
of hungry supporters from throughout
the tri-county area. The event would
not be possible without the support
of Suzy DeChamplain, owner of De-
Champlain's Heaven's Gate Farm. A
heart for local students and a love for


Gilchrist County Property Appraiser Damon Leggett fried quail.

Game cooks and volunteers from
throughout the county work tirelessly
for several days leading up the Wild

game and fowl including: gator tail,
frog legs, quail, mountain goat, water


buffalo, mountain oysters, pork, corn
on the cob, swamp cabbage, authen-
tic gumbo, beef, barbecue goat and a
plethora of homemade desserts. This
year's Wild Beast Feast was moved

scheduling conflicts in April. Accord-
ing to Thomas, the annual event will
be held next year on April 17, 2009.

Old Town boy killed in


wreck near Riverwalk


By John M. Ayers
Saturday afternoon the intersection
of SR 26 and T.L Johnson Blvd. was
the scene of a tragic fatality involv-
ing a 14-year-old Old Town youth
who was killed as he was a passenger
in the car driven by Herbert Brown
of Old Town.
The Florida Highway Patrol report-
ed that just before 2 p.m. on March
15, Herbert Brown and a young fam-
ily member were traveling eastbound
in a 1991 Buick 4 door on SR 26.
A 2003 Ford pickup truck driven
by Joyce McCraney of Chiefland
was westbound on SR 26. The 1991
Buick driven by Herbert Brown trav-
eled into the westbound lane of SR
26 in an attempt to go around an un-
involved vehicle that was stopped in
the eastbound lane of SR 26 attempt-
ing to turn left onto T.L. Johnson
Blvd into the Riverwalk residential
community. The front of the Buick
collided into the front of the Ford
pickup in the westbound lane of SR


26 in the intersection. The Buick
came to rest on SR 26 in the inter-
section facing east. The pickup truck
also remained in the intersection-fac-
ing west. The driver and the youth in
the Buick were reported to not have
been wearing their safety belts at the
time of the accident.
Joyce McCraney was transported
to Shands at the University of Flor-
ida where she was reported to be in
critical condition. Charges in this ac-
cident are pending a complete traf-
fic homicide investigation. Corporal
J.T. Clark is the investigator with the
Florida Highway Patrol.

Quilt enthusiasts flock to festival

Strong winds ruffled the 200 an-
tique quilts of varying shades and
patterns that hung along Main Street
in Trenton on Saturday during the
Suwannee Valley Antique Quilt Fes-
tival.
Hundreds of local quilt enthusiasts
were joined by quilters from as far as
Jacksonville, Davenport and Tampa
all strolling the sidewalks of down-
town Trenton admiring the vintage
quilts in celebration of National Quilt
Day.
Quilts on display ranged from an-
tique baby quilts, feedsack quilts,
Civil War era quilts and Civil War
reproduction quilts to Redwork quilts
and 1930-1940s era quilts.
A National Quilters Association
certified quilt appraiser Brenda M.
Kalata, a resident of St. Augustine,
put a date and appraisal on many
of the quilts, which surprised many
quilt owners who knew only the
sentimental value not the monetary.
value of their treasured quilts. One
Gainesville quilt owner was surprised
to learn her quilt was made around
1860 and valued at $4,000 to $8,000.
Kalata also provided information on
the history of the fabric used in the 39
quilts she appraised.
Antique car enthusiasts were de-
lighted to see vintage automobiles
displayed on Main Street. Car own-
ers from the Suwannee River Early
Ford V8 Club talked with spectators
about the restoration process of the
classic cars and pointed out an early
Ford quilt hanging nearby, which was
made by the Springhouse Quilters in
1996.
As a quilter, Deborah Johnston of
Pickle Dish Antiques in Anthony,
Fla. enjoyed not only seeing the vin-
tage quilts in Trenton, but also selling
antiques and sewing machines at her
booth set up near the Trenton Depot.
"This is just great!" Johnston said.
Handspun knitting yar and or-
ganically grown vegetables were be-
ing sold by Ellen Hogan, a Gilchrist
County resident who sells home-
grown vegetables from her Doye's
Roost Farm located on County Road
232.
Gloria Comstock, representing
the Quilters of Alachua County Day
Guild, drew a large crowd at the Tren-
ton Depot where she demonstrated
the ancient art of bed turning.
One of the most enjoyed events
at the festival was several reenact-
ment groups including the Historical
Sewing Society from Lake City, who
demonstrated nearly lost sewing arts
including tatting, spinning wool, and
la'ce'maldng. The Noith Florida Ci-
vilianzSociety treated ,gueststoa taste
of the 1850s by serving sweets made
from recipes dating back to the 1700s
and 1800s.

seum in Lake City shows Maryn

Robert Roux, Jr. announces

candidacy for sheriff
Editor's Note: Gilchrist County Sheriff's candidate Robert Roux, Jr.'s an-
nouncement is being reprinted in this week's issue of the Gilchrist County
Journal due to an error on the part of the newspaper staff last week. We
apologize for any inconvenience the mistake may have. caused.


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.

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L


By Cai e A. Mizell
By Carrie A. Mizell


First it was obstructing local side-
walks, then came jumping from the
rooftops of businesses along Main
Street and now skateboarders have
taken to the highways. The thrill of
skateboarding down the middle of
streets in downtown Trenton has ap-
parently lost its luster and the skate-
boarding posse has claimed State
Road 47 as their own.
That's right, the little thrill seek-
ers are now taking over major high-
ways.
I came-face to face with one skate-
boarder on Monday afternoon shortly
after 4. While driving north on SR 47,
I was forced to slow to a stop to allow
a group of shaggy haired and droopy
pants-wearing skateboarders the op-
portunity to get off the highway or
take a ride on my windshield.
Encouraged by his friends who
moved to the safety of the sidewalk
to cheer him on, one lone rebel had
the audacity to stop dead in his tracks
jn front of my car and with a snicker
he shot me a bird much to the delight
of his posse. I was so dumb-founded
by the kid's total lack of respect that I
sat stunned momentarily.
Praying for patience, I drove on out
of town thinking about all the times I
had managed to keep my cool with
the skateboarders. Honestly up until
this week I meant them no physical
harm, but I have to tell you, on Mon-
day afternoon I was wondering where
I could purchase a set of cow horns
like J.R. Ewing had on the front of
his Cadillac in "Dallas."
Over the last several months I have
managed not to say anything when
they skated off the roof of the Jour-
nal and returned to try it again after
we asked them to leave, or when they
stole some of our office shelving to
inake ramps with. I even held my
tongue earlier this month when one
local mother of a skateboarder spoke
up in a public meeting to defend her


child's right to choose skateboarding
as a "lifestyle," but the incident on
Monday afternoon pushed it a little
too far with me.
I called Trenton Police Chief Billy
Smith to report what had happened
and see what he is doing about the
city's obvious problem with skate-
boarders. Chief Smith told me he
would go down there and try to
catch them and write them a ticket
because it is illegal to skateboard in
the middle of a highway. Apparently
the chief has caught two other teens
skateboarding down the highway and
written them tickets only to face the
wrath of their angry parents.
Skateboarders' antics are not a new
problem in the City of Trenton. Re-
cently, the Trenton City Commission
closed its skateboarding section of the
Trenton City Park after Chief Smith
reported that numerous complaints
had been received about the level of
noise and filthy language being used
by skateboarders at the skate park.
The chief has since suggested the city
utilize a 20-acre parcel it owns east
of the Trenton Post Office as a skate
park, but so far the city commission-
ers have failed to make a decision on
what to do.
Hopefully, a decision will be made
soon, but even if a skate park is built
near the post office, what will guar-
antee the skateboarders will stay off
the streets and skate only in the skate
park? Obviously these teens have
no discipline at home and their par-
ents have no idea what they do after
school each day.
It's a real shame and a total waste
of taxpayer's money that the Tren-
ton Police Department has to spend
time each afternoon babysitting these
skateboarders. I cannot imagine why
the Trenton City Commission would
throw more money away attempting
to build a play pen to keep these van-
dals in.


( Letters to the Editor


Keep out noisy mulch
plant
When I tell city people I live here
in Gilchrist, many say, "That's a
lovely place with world-class, springs
and a relaxed pace."
After being in Gainesville, I find
the QUIET here one of Gilchrist's
greatest assets. The low noise levels,.
especially at night, allow me to re-
ally hear the sounds of nature: owls;
whipoorwills, e. "Naoiiral sounds
soothe the soul. r"
Help keep the mulch plant out of


our quiet, rural area. Attend the Plan-
ning Committee Meeting on Monday,
March 24 at 6 p.m. at the Courthouse
Annex on 210 S. Main Street in Tren-
ton.
Sincerely,
Catherine B. Gramatzki

Our Year Of Political Turmoil
(Kent Heaton)


The political year of 2008 will be engraved upon the
pages of history as a most unusual time. Some describe
the year as one of political turmoil. There is so much
unsettling with the state of the Union, the affairs of State,
the disturbing news of war that 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

Would you like a mulch plant or
power plant in your quiet neighbor-
hood? I would think not.
This is the situation that we as a
rural community are now facing with
the misguided approach to permit-
ting heavy industry on agricultural
lands. This type of operation should
only be permitted in areas where like
businesses are presently operating.
They do not make good neighbors to
homeowners. The noise factor alone
should cause a critical thought, not to
mention light pollution and the obvi-
ous other sources of negative quality
of life issues.
The call for more jobs to the area
is a false promise as these businesses
could very well locate to a metropoli-
tan area where traffic and noise are
common and transportation to work
is not a long ride.
As we strive for a county identity,
do we want to be known as the county
that is totally not suitable for human
habitation? Don't sell our natural
beauty for a rush to construct areas
that can become waste sites.
Very sincerely,
E.J. Bisch
Bell


Mulch plant
Dear Editor,
It is just not safe for loaded log
trucks and school buses filled with
children, to share the 60 mph, single-
lane highways of Gilchris; County.
What excuse will be given when
a log truck slams into the back of a
stopped school bus? Limited sight
distance? Patchy fog?
When a piece of a log falls off a
truck onto the highway at 60 mph,
the driver of the school bus, follow-
ing that truck, has few options. Hit
the log? Swerve into oncoming traf-
fic? Drive the bus off the road?
Those are our.children on that bus.
Friday, we counted 11 school buses
on SR 47 and another 7 on CR 232,
where the proposed mulch plant
will be a destination for loaded log
trucks.
If parents don't care enough to
take action, then let's hope that some
of our school bus drivers will speak
up at the meeting. That meeting is
Monday March 24th at 6:00 pm at the
Gilchrist County Planning Commis-
sion 210 S. Main St, in Trenton.

Commentary on the Epistles of Peter, pp 16,17.).
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?

By John M. Ayers .
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion agreed on Monday to once again
open Philpot Park just south of Rock
Bluff on the Suwannee River and a
small county-owned parcel of land
adjacent to Ginnie Springs Park on
the Santa Fe River at the end of NE
70th Street.
Commissioner Randy Durden ex-
plained to the board that neighbors
in the Philpot Park community have
agreed to police the park closer if the
gate is left open and signs advise the
park is open during daylight hours
only. The board agreed to open the

Commissioner Tommy Lang-

fence at the small county park on the
Santa Fe has again been cut and the
public is accessing the park to get to
the river.
"We want the park open, but we
want the neighborhood to help po-
lice the park and grounds," said
Commissioner Tommy Langford.
The commission chairman told the
board that he had talked with Pete

property, and he had agreed to put up

that the county provide a trash barrel
to be put at the park to reduce litter
on the grounds.
Commissioner Langford reported
that if the county could reduce the
commercial bus traffic involving re-
tail companies that take tubers and
canoers to the area and drop them off
to float down the river, the park might
stay clean. Cbmnissioner Langford
explained that when the canoers are
picked up, some of the people have
accumulated trash in their boats and
that trash is dumped at the park be-
cause the retailer does not accept it
with the canoes.
Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford asked when the parks cleaned.
County Administrator Ron McQueen
pointed out that the Department of
Corrections inmate work squad picks
up the trash every Monday.

Methodist Church of Newberry's an-
nual homecoming service.
According to Renee Lassiter,
daughter of County Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison Jr., Harrison is mak-
ing progress on his road to recovery.
After five weeks in the Intensive Care
Unit, he has been moved to the Pro-
gressive Care Unit at North Florida
Regional Hospital. Harrison is now
on the second floor, room one of the
unit. A nurse took Harrison outside in
a wheelchair to sit by the duck pond
and get a little sun after 36 days of
being inside which greatly,lifted his
spirits. This week, Harrison was ex-
pected to work on strengthening his
legs. The family is hopeful that he
will soon be able to eat soft foods.

This service station as it was referred to years ago was located
at the red light in Trenton in the early 1940s. The owners of this
business as the sign above the gasoline pumps indicated were the
Lancaster Brothers, N.R. and Howell Eugene Lancaster, Sr.
This Crown gasoline station was originally owned by their fa-
ther, Raleigh Lancaster in the 1930s and J.W. "Pinky' Pitthnan
worked for Mr. Lancaster as the station attendant piumpin.g gas
and providing service to customers while he attended high school
in Trenton.
In the 1930s the station stayed open 24 hours a day. The Lan-
caster Brothers took over the operation of the station in the mid
1940s after the passing of Mr. Raleigh Lancaster. This was a Chev-
ron service sta'on up until the early 1980s that was owned and
operated by Mr. and Mrs. Charles Hatch. They also owned the
florist shop adjacent to the City Hall. Photo provided by Carolyn
Wilson of Trenton.

What is DEDICATION?


I will never forget a lesson my Grandfather taught me growing up.
He told me, son, no matter what you accomplish in life, nothing
matters more than giving back to your community. I took that
statement to heart and it has been a huge part of my life. I left
Gilchrist County in 1990, and joined the Marine Corps. I came back
after 4 years and started my career at the GCSO. I began as a
Dispatcher and worked my way up to a Lieutenant. I chose to leave
GCSO to expand my career with DGG Taser, to gain the business experience. I have been dedicated to
giving back to our community as a law enforcement officer, coach, mentor, as well as a citizen and
person. It is my dream and passion to be your next Sheriff and with your help I believe, we, as a
community, will make a difference.
I would like to thank everyone who came to visit with me last Saturday at the Osteen Community Center
and due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to hold the meet and greet at the Leggett Community
Center, but we will reschedule and get to that area in the near future.

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


To inquire for more information about
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?

The Tiqers Finish the
Week at 6-3: 5-2 In the
District
By Brandon McElroy
The first game this week was held
in Lafayette County, a district match-
up between the Hornets and the Ti-
gers. This was the first time this sea-
son the two teams faced each other,
arid with much anticipation, the game
SA began. The Tigers and
the Hornets both got
it" off to a slow start and
Sthe score was 0-0 until
the Tigers struck first in
the 4th inning scoring 3
runs. The Hornets answered back on
offense scoring 2 in the bottom of the
4th. Those 3 runs were the only runs
the Tigers could seem to find, where-
as Mayo was able to add 2 more to
their total, scoring 4 runs overall. The
Tigers fell behind and were unable to
take an easy win sim-
ply because they only
had 4 hits. Karson Gil-a
bert went 2-3, batting a0
.667 leading the team
this game in batting
average. Also Billy Owens had a su-
perman-like diving grab that would
probably make the Top Ten High-
lights on Sports Center! All in all,
the Tigers fell short of the triumphant
win by one run. The only three games
the Tigers have lost have been by one
run. What that all comes down to is
the Tigers have been on the short end
of the lucky stick! The final score was
your Trenton Tigers 3 and the Lafay-
ette Hornets 4. The Hornets gave the
Tigers .lheir. third joss of, the. seas~, ,
~,/ J ,B andtheir send league ,
loss.
1The Tigers closed
.. the week with a game
against the rival Bull-
dogs in the Jungle.
What better way to close the week
out then with a classic inner county
rival such as this one. It was after the
Beast Feast so everyone could get
some dinner then make I-t
their way to the field to1
watch part two of the
"Battle for Gilchrist
County." The weather
couldn't have cleared up
any better than it did for this game.
Nothing is better than a cool breeze
and Friday night lights on the THS
baseball field.
The Tigers got off to a slow start
allowing 2 runs in the first inning and
a 3rd run in the second. After that,
the Tigers focused, stopped playing
around and put this game away. The
score stayed 3-3 until the bottom of
-the 4th when the Tigers started to
pull away, adding 2 more runs, mak-
ing the score 5-3. Defense held up
strong in the 5th inning and good
defense allowed first-class offense.
The Tigers batted around in the line-
up in the 5th inning scoring 6 more
runs increasing the lead to 11-3. Six
innings was all the Tigers needed for
this one, scoring two more runs and
locking the game up with a ten-run
rule. Lead-off batter Billy Owens was
fired up all night long as he went 3-5,

People of Our Chapel
Sunrise Service '08
As in the past, there's always an
expectancy in the air as we celebrate
the risen Christ and usher in the de-
lightful season of spring. The people
of Our Chapel at Otter Springs are
expecting something great in 2008,
so they are hosting a "Sunrise Ser-
vice" on Resurrection Sunday morn-
ing, on March 23, beginning at 7:30
a.m. Due to the rising of the spring's
water, the location has been changed
to the west side of the Spring House
Lodge at Otter Springs RV Resort at
6470 SW 80th Avenue in Trenton.
The service is open to the public
with a covered dish fellowship break-
fast planned afterwards at the lodge.
Doors of the lodge will open at 6:30
a.m. for all those who will be bring-
ing a dish to share.
The following people will be a part
of the program: Pastor Jimmy Sum-
ner of Our Chapel as M.C.; Pastor
Merle Goodrich of Trenton Com-
munity Church of Nazarene will
give the opening prayer; Pastor Tra-
vis Hudson of Hardeetown Baptist
Church will give the message for the
service; Pastor David Jones of Fan-
ning Springs Community Church
will present the music; Pastor Jake
Cravey of Bethel Baptist Church will
speak the closing prayer and Mr. J.D.
Perryman of the Trenton Community
Church of Nazarene will play his bag
pipes, with solos to be sung by Mrs.
Krista Perryman and Mr. Emmanual
Harrs. What a wonderful morning it
will be!
So make plans to attend and be
renewed, refilled and refreshed as a
gentle reminder of what Jesus Christ
our Savior did for each of us; by giv-
ing us new life for today and always
through His death, burial and resur-
rection.

tor Jimmy Sumner at 562-4393 or

Trenton Mi
is a complex


By Anna Wild
Traffic along several Gilchrist
County roads slowed to a crawl last
week as the Suwannee River Wagon
Train traveled the banks of the river.
John Paul Schneider of Live Oak
and several of his friends fulfilled
a lifelong dream of wagon training
from Griffis Fishing Camp in the
Okefenokee Swamp in Fargo, Geor-
gia; where the Suwannee River be-
gins, to the town of.Suwannee, where
the Suwannee River meets the Gulf
of Mexico.
According to Schneider, the wagon
train travelers have met a lot of nice
folks as they stopped to rest along the


banks of the Suwannee River, at peo-
ple's farms and at state parks along
the way. The trip downriver took a
total of 20 days, as the wagon train
traveled at about 4 miles per hour,
riding six to seven hours each day.
Rain and poor road conditions held
the travelers up from time to time
but nonetheless these men weathered
through and found that fulfilling a
dream is always time well spent. *
Schneider said he put his dream
of riding from the beginning to the
end of the Suwannee River off after
a friend, who shared the same dream,
passed away several years ago. The
dream was once again sparked when

Schneider was interviewed by Tom
Seay, producer of "Best of America
by Horseback." Today, Schneider
claims Seay as a good friend who
joined the rag tag group of men,
three homemade wagons, seven head
of mules and a few horses on their
journey. Everyone who participated
along the way was not able to com-
mit to the full 20 days on the road,
but many were fortunate enough to
be able to.

ner, Raymond Richardson, William
Stevenson and Audrey Plack were
spotted in Gilchrist County mak-
ing their trek across the Rock Bluff
Bridge. The travelers tried to stay
as close to the river as possible and
wanted to thank everyone for all their
support along the way.
Schneider would like to encour-
age people to take advantage of the
Greenway Trails available to them.
Horses are allowed on most trails
and the experience of getting away
from the same scenery and seeing the
beautiful state we call home is very
exciting and relaxing.

Springhouse Quilters News
..-.. - -


This is Kim Hart's new quilt she made for her Dad using T Shirt em-
blems. You done good Kim.


These were just some of the quilts that were being displayed on Satur-
day. The quilts above were hung in.front Petrello's Restaurant.


Springhouse Quilter's participated
in the National Quilt Day Antique
and Vintage Quilt Festival this past
Saturday. This was an outdoor fes-
tival with all quilts hanging from
buildings on North Main Street in
Trenton There were approximately
250 quilts hanging from windows,
awnings, walls and the old railroad
depot for public viewing. The streets
were filled with visitors to Trenton
viewing the festival. It was a re-
laxed happy time to be able to walk
the sidewalk and enjoy the quilt dis-
play. Everyone seemed so happy and
interested in the quilts on display.
Many of the Springhouse Quilters
served as hostesses for the festival
and wore early American costumes.
Even though the day was long for all
the volunteers working the festival,
it was a wonderful time to view the
old quilts, and visit with the many
quilters in the tri-county area.
A National Quilting Association
certified quilt appraiser was available
and appraised 39 of the quilts upon
request of the owner. It was surpris-


ing to see the actual value of many of
the "old quilts and to learn some of,
the history behind the quilts. As the
quilts get older, some become mu-
seum pieces and are a very valuable
possession. Many of the quilts have
been passed down to family members
who have no idea of the history of the
quilt.
A special thanks is extended to ev-
eryone visiting the festival but most
of all thanks is extended to the many
volunteers who assisted in hanging
quilts and working on the festival.
The City Manager of Trenton and
City Commission were a wonderful
help in assisting with the festival.
Even though the quilts were the fea-
ture of the festival, it was really nice
to see all of the businesses so busy
with customers. The show was a spe-
cial attempt to bring visitors to Tren-
ton and let them enjoy what we know
is the very best place in Florida.

Quilter's, contact Lois Scott, 463-

It was another wonderful day, the
weather was great, the fellowship
was wonderful, the week was busy
and all's well in our world.
How good it was to have Goldie
McHenry back after her sickness.
Cleo and Pat, her daughters, came
with her as'she is still on oxygen and
nbeds some help.
We have a large group coming


from Newberry tomorrow. It is a se-
nior citizen group and we look for-
ward to our time with them.
Saturday will be our Pickin' on the
Porch.
Tuesday, Derick and six boys were
out and got the flower beds around
our sign cleaned and the pots replant-
ed. They pulled and took care of our
turnip patch: They had to leave early
as there are some sick at Lancaster.
Thanks again.
Our lunch was the best in a while.

product can be nerve-wracking and is quite often one of the
largest financial and emotional investments you will ever make.
Wherever you are in the process, brainstorming, planning,
drafting, or location finding, Dream Builders Development

SGILCHRIST COUNTY FAIR BOOST

Dear Gilchrist County Fair Booster,


17


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.

SMany 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
75th Ave, 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

County will not grade new

roads in City of Trenton


AN MERI


SAN


R=VOLUTION


em


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission-
ers determined they could not take on
the maintenance of requested roads
in the City of Trenton.
Trenton City Manager Jered Ot-
tenwess requested Gilchrist County
Road Department Superintendent
Justin Watson coordinate grading NE
10th Street, and the terminus of SW
5th Avenue aiid fiiish gradirig NE 9th
Street in Trenton.
Watson asked Ottenwess to send a
formal request to the Board of County
Commissioners involving the specific
roads the city wants maintained.
."I understand that the county's
budget and expenditures are under
more scrutiny currently, as most lo-
cal governments face increasing
pressure to decrease levels of ad va-
lorem taxation while maintaining the
same levels of service," Ottenwess
stated in a letter. "However, as you
know, the City of Trenton does not


own road grading or maintenance
equipment sufficient for effectively
maintaining our roadways in a man-
ner that many citizens have come to
expect. Likewise, City of Trenton
taxpayers are also Gilchrist County
taxpayers and deserve the same level
of service for their roadways as any
other resident. Please inform me if it
is a problem for the Gilchrist County
Road Department to grade any road
in the City of Trenton so that I may
respond accordingly."
The board reviewed the letter from
the Trenton City Manager in the
Monday mid-month meeting.
"I'm not agreeing to maintain their
roads in the City of Trenton," Com-
missioner Randy Durden said as he
put his statement in the form of a mo-
tion to deny.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
agreed and gave a second to discuss
the request. The board voted 4-0 in
favor of the motion.

Violent crime in Gilchrist County
has decreased over the last year by
28.9 percent, according to the 2007
Uniform Crime Report (UCR), which
was recently released by the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement.
Gilchrist County Sheriff David
Turner was happy to report that the
violent crime rate in the county con-
tinues to follow a downward trend
shown in recent years. Reports by the
GCSO indicated crime trends in 2007
included a 16.3 percent reduction in
burglaries, a 53.5 percent reduction
in larceny and a 32 percent reduction
in motor vehicle theft.
Arrest data for 2007 revealed a
112.3 percent increase in arrests
made by GCSO officers. In 2007,


448 arrests were made countywide.
Of those arrests: 419 were adults and
29 were juveniles, 295 were male and
153 were female.
"It is only through the increased
awareness and reporting of suspi-
cious incidents by the community,
combined with the diligent efforts
of Sheriff's Office personnel that we
have continued to reduce the crime
rate within Gilchrist County," Sheriff
Turner said.
