Drummond Community Bank will re-locate the former Trenton office
to Bell within the next several months, while Lafayette State Bank
plans to build a new bank on property recently purchased in Bell.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Drummond Community Bank and
Lafayette State Bank have announced
plans to open branches in Bell later
this year.
Plans to open a second branch of-
fice of Drummond Community Bank
,in Gilchrist County have been in the
works for several years, according
to Scott Guthrie, vice president of
Drummond Community Bank.
Guthrie explained that Drummond
Community Bank's first office build-
ing in Trenton will be re-located to
property the bank has purchased on
the north end of Bell adjacent to the
Bells and Whistles Car Wash.
Currently bank officials are getting
site plans and working with the De-
partment of Transportation and the
Suwannee River Water Management
District in an effort to open the new
branch as soon as possible. According
to Guthrie, Drummond has already
gotten state regulatory approval.
"This branch will be an extension
of our current Gilchrist County op-
erations," Guthrie said. "We have a
pretty good clientele in Bell so there
is an existing market."
Initially three to four employees
will be hired to staff the branch,
Guthrie said.
Drummond Community Bank is
a locally owned and locally man-
aged bank with offices in Chiefland,

Livestock gross sales drop to $72.3,070


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The long running tradition of sale
day at the Suwannee River Fair was
held on Wednesday, Mar. 2.

sold for a total of $723,070.
The sale started with the sale of the
Trenton High School Sr. FFA fat steer
which was the show's grand cham-
pion fat steer. The steer weighed in
at 1304.65 pounds and sold for $7.00
per pound. The buyers were Trenton
Medical Center, Scoggins Chevrolet,
Dr. Charlie Cox, Ted Yoho, Terrell
and Lynette Langford, Bell Family

Blue Springs water bottling

plant hearing postponed


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action on Monday to approve a
request by Ray E. Thomas, Jr, rep-
resenting Blue Springs Properties,
Inc. requesting a postponement of
the April 21, 2008 scheduled public
hearing before the board. Thomas
explained that at the present time he
is working with the Suwannee River
Water Management District involv-
ing the Consumptive Use Permit and
it would be best if the board would
hear the application for Special Ex-
ception before the entire five-mem-
ber board.
If the board hears the Special Ex-
ception application and then votes
to a 2-2 tie, the council will have to
again present the request before the


five-member board when Commis-
sioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr. returns
from his illness. Thomas further
pointed out that it would be best if the
board could wait until Commissioner
Harrison returns before the hearing is
held.
"At this point we are not ready
to fast track this request, having the
meeting on April 21 would put us
in a time restraint," attorney Ray E.
Thomas, Jr. explained.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion to delay the April 21,
2008 hearing until Commissioner
Harrison returns to the board or until
a date is set. Commissioner Sharon
Akins Langford agreed with a second
before the board approved the request
by a 4-0 vote.

Rest stop at Trenton Depot draws 650 bicyclists


By Carrie A. Mizell
A white sports bra and spandex
shorts covered the toned, sun kissed
body of a 75-year-old bicyclist who
stopped in Trenton for a peanut but-
ter sandwich last Friday while on a
weeklong bicycle adventure.
Sandra Barber of Akron, Ohio was
among 650 bicyclists who partici-
pated in the 15th annual Bike Florida
fundraising event last week. The cy-
clists started their trek on the Pinellas
Trail in Clearwater on Sunday, Mar.
30. Each day the group rode 50 to
60 miles through small towns, rural
roads and along various trails, includ-
ing the Suncoast Parkway Trail in
New Port Richie, the Withlacoochie
State Trail in Inverness, the Withla-
coochee Bay Trail in Dunnellon and
the Nature Coast State Trail.
The bicyclists left Dunnellon early
Friday morning and made two rest

move to Florida because
I don't like the humidity
or the heat."
Sandra Barber
stops prior to arriving at the Trenton
Depot for juice, peanut butter sand-
wiches, oranges, pretzels, and cook-
ies. Once rejuvenated, the cyclists
continued on to Fanning Springs
where the ride ended.
"The weather has been gorgeous,"
Barber said. "The trails have all been
nice trails except for one area near
Dunnellon that was sandy. We had to
hike our bikes through that spot."
Though the bicyclists come from
different parts of the United States
to participate in the annual ride, Bar-


ber said it is easy to establish close
friendships once on the trail. An avid
bicyclist since the age of 40, Barber
said she took up the sport as a stress
reliever while going through a di-
vorce.
"I usually go on eight or nine rides
a year," Barber said. "But I have no
plans to move to Florida because I
don't like the humidity or the heat."
Barber did brave the heat long
enough to complete the Bike Florida
event on Friday, which helps supple-
ment the Florida Traffic and Bicycle
Safety Education Program each year.
According to the Bike Florida
website, proceeds from the ride sup-
port bicycle safety education and the
regional training team that hosts bi-
cycle safety education workshops for
school teachers, youth leaders, law
enforcement officers and safety of-
ficers.

Mosquitoes may have to search a
little harder for breeding grounds in
Gilchrist County this spring since the
Solid Waste Department collected
14.5 tons of tires during Amnesty
Days 2008.
According to staff at the Gilchrist
County Solid Waste Department, a
total tonnage of appliances collected,
including: washers, dryers, refrigera-
tors, freezers and stoves had not been
determined at press time.
The annual event, which ran March
24 through April 5, was established to
give county residents the opportunity
to dispose of waste items that would
be considered breeding ground for
mosquitoes at no charge.
Solid Waste staff explained that
there was no limit set on the number
of appliances accepted at the recy-
cling center in Bell and a limit of five
tires per person per day,. which ap-
plied to car and light truck tires only.
No large truck or agricultural tires
were accepted.

Spring Ridge subdivision does not meet

DOT SCRAP guidelines
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission Chairman advised the Gilchrist County Commission on Monday that the De-
partment of Transportation SCRAP resurfacing program turned down one of the two projects submitted by Gilchrist
County. The chairman reported that DOT officials explained that the Spring Ridge subdivision on CR 340 did not
meet the guidelines to have the paved roads resurfaced in the program.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas under Commissioner's Reports explained, "If we don't do something now to the
roads in Spring Ridge, the present roadway surface will be in even worse shape." Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
asked the board to consider spending $30,000 from the Special Projects fund to improve the roads and put forth that
much money annually until the roads are resurfaced.
The board asked Justin Watson for his explanation of the condition of the roads in Spring Ridge subdivision.
Watson explained that he was unsure of the base under the pavement. He recommended before anything is done on
the roads that the surface be bore drilled to determine if the base was adequate for resurfacing. The Superintendent
explained that the pavement at Spring Ridge was 18 feet wide.
The board took no action involving Spring Ridge subdivision.


County adopts new cell phone policy


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
adopted Resolution 2008-32 after the
board was made aware that personal
cell phone use has become excessive
by some county employees, and the
board needed to establish a policy.
The four-member board discussed
the use of cellular telephones in de-
tail to determine if the uses by county
employees were excessive during
working hours and if the telephone
calls were personal, being made after
hours and during the weekends.
Gilchrist County Clerk Joe Gil-
liam showed the board the regula-


tions involving the State of Florida
cell phone use. He explained in detail
what the regulations are as he pointed
to them and summarized each point.
Gilliam said that each county depart-
ment has a separate plan with differ-
ent minutes and a different number of
phones for each department. At the
present time there are 33 ,;eUll phAes
being used by county empIpoyees lnd
volunteer firemen. There are five new
phones that have been recently acti-
vated with the fire rescue.
"Gilchrist County before now did
not have a cellular telephone policy
in effect," County Administrator Ron


McQueen, said.
The clerk recommended Gilchrist
County be reimbursed for all per-
sonal calls and that all personal calls
over the identified number of min-
utes be charged .10 cents a minute.
The clerk asked if the board wanted
to make this policy retroactive back
to the first.ofthe 2008-09Aiscal year.
,The..rqotion. by CoQnmissjiner Ken-
rick Thomas was to approve Resolu-
tion 2008-32 and for it to become ef-
fective April 7, 2008. Commissioner
Sharon Langford gave a second for
discussion. The board voted 4-0 in
favor of the resolution.


Anita's Coffee Barn opens on SR 26 east of Trenton


By Carrie A. Mizell
A cheerful smile greets custom-
ers as they pull up to the drive-thru
window at Anita's Coffee Barn an-
ticipating a warm homemade muffin,
blended coffee drink, or just a glass
of sweet lemonade.
From beneath her visor, Anita Cam-
eron visits with returning customers
and new customers alike. She listens
to their request and even guesses the
orders of several faithful customers
before filling the order and offering a
sample of a new tasty treat.
"I think the best way to sell a prod-
uct is to let people try it!" Cameron
said.
A wife and mother of two daugh-
ters, Cameron worked with race-
horses for 20 years before deciding
to purchase the coffee barn on SR 26
from Nathan and Tracey App earlier
this year.
"I decided I wanted a new direc-
tion," Cameron said. "I like people
and after working for the Apps brief-
ly I knew I was interested in food
service so 1 just thought what the
heck."
According to Cameron, the coffee
barn's business has doubled since
she opened three weeks ago. While
she is always trying new recipes to
offer her customers, Cameron said
current popular favorites include: chi
tea infused with spices and steamed
with milk, cinnamon rolls made from
scratch by a Bell couple, homemade
lemonade and blended coffee drinks
known as Anita-chinos, all natural
smoothie drinks and delicious coffee
shipped fresh from Latitudes Coffee
Roasters in Fernandina Beach, Fla.
As for the future, Cameron said she
plans to continue to grow the busi-
ness.
"Maybe eventually we will out-
grow our building," Cameron said. "I
would like to expand the menu one
day to include lunch."
Cameron said eventually she
would also like to cater to the after
school crowd by staying open in the
afternoons, but for now she is thrilled
with her blossoming business and is
busy working on special items for the
summer.
Anita's Coffee Barn is located in
front of Appy Acres, at 589 SE State
Road 26 in Trenton. Hours of opera-
tion are Monday through Friday 6:30
a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and Saturday from
7 a.m. to 1 p.m.

John's Comments

By: John M. Ayers


I have been guilty of doing some
silly things in my life, but after Satur-
day, I will agree to admit to our son-
in-law Adam that we would be better
off if we fished off the dock instead
of going out in the boat.
Adam and I couldn't talk J into
going with us to try out the boat; J
explained that he had things he had
to do, when honestly he thought the
weather was too rough to go offshore.
J was right in some respect. Adam
and I were both too hard headed to
admit to one another that we should
not have gone offshore on Saturday,
but we did anyway.
The boat performed very well un-
der the conditions. As Adam and I
were headed south out of McGriff
Channel, the waves were blowing so
that we would occasionally get a bit
of spray in the face. We both knew
that it would be a slow trip to our
first spot out behind the old Marker
12, but we were willing to accept the
rough weather in hopes that we could
catch a few fish.
By the time we arrived on our first
spot, we determined that we could
only troll due to the wind and the


waves were too rough to try and an-
chor on the structure. Adam had his
choice, to be the boat driver or he
could fish. Due to the weather and
the sea conditions, walking around
the boat was limited.
I put out our trolling baits in hopes
of getting a strike. When the Captain
crossed the first hole or structure, and
the pole began to hop and the reel
began to scream, I knew that the bite
was on. Within seconds, I had the reel
in hand and was trying to restrict the
line from screaming off of the reel.
I could tell the fish could be of
keeper size because of the pull and it
continued to take line. I finally tight-
ened the drag to the point that I began
to put line back on the reel.
We fished up until 1:30 p.m. as
the bite slowed. By that time we had
enough fish for dinner and a few fil-
lets for the freezer. Our trip back to
Suwannee was a much dryer trip even
though the swells had risen to solid 4-
footers. We had a good time and this
was quite an experience. I'm not an
experienced seaman, but I have a lot
of respect for the men that brave the
sea conditions for their livelihood.

Tributes
Dear Editor,
I have been a subscriber of the Jour-
nal for many years and as a whole I
think everyone there does a good job.
But many times I have wondered
about one decision made. I read last
week a special announcement that
you print births, engagement and
weddings, free of charge. Do you
print In Memory of lost love ones,
little articles in remembrance of the
ones we have lost. I know when my
husband passed in July of '98, and
when I asked to reprint a small ar-
ticle our children wrote about how he
was their hero. I was charged about
$80.00 for 2 small articles. So I ask,
will these types of articles be free to
send in. Thank you for a reply.
Sincerely,
Geneva Douglas
widow of Lewis Douglas

Lesbian "Man" Having Baby
(Kent Heaton)


My disgust with the liberal national press has reached
an all time high. It leads the moral conscience of our
nation to accept perversion as if it is as normal as water.
News headlines claim that a ''man" is pregnant. Pictures,
interviews and great fan-fare exploit the stupidity of a
nation wallowing in the mire of indecency, ungodliness,
and sexual immorality. The news media continues to refer
to "him" and the precedent being established by this
pregnancy. Finally the moral conscience of our nation is
exposed for what it really is.
The "man" in question is not a man. The individual at
the center of this idi6cy is a lesbian who took sufficient
drugs to enhance male features but kept the reproductive
organs (created by Almighty God) thus allowing science
to inseminate her with life (created by Almighty God) to
produce a child. Sadly, an innocent child will be born into
a world of uncleanness, lust and dishonor.
"Therefore God gave them over in the lusts of their
hearts to impurity, so that their bodies would be
dishonored among them. For they exchanged the truth
of God for a lie, and worshiped and served the creature
rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
For this reason God gave them over to degrading
passions; for their women exchanged the natural
function for that which is unnatural, and in the same
way also the men abandoned the natural function of the
woman and burned in their desire toward one another,
men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in
their own persons the due penalty of their error. And
just as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any
longer, God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do


those things which are not proper, being filled with all
unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy,
murder, strife, deceit,- malice; they are gossips,
slanderers, haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful,
inventors of evil, disobedient to parents, without
understanding, untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful;
and although they know the ordinance of God, that those
who practice such things are worthy of death, they not
only do the same, but also give hearty approval to those
who practice them" (Romans 1:24-32).
The homosexual agenda has sufficiently built a
foundation of acceptance in our society of depravity.
While in a minority, they have achieved the height of
exposure on television, movies, and societal views that
propel them to be seen as normal. Their acceptance could
only be found in a society of people that have abandoned
inner worth, respect for God and loyalty to the ideals of
family.
The Creator of this world has shown that
homosexuality, adultery, fornication and such like are
against His will and purpose (1 Corinthians 6:9,10;
Romans 1:18; 1 Timothy 1:9; 2 Timothy 3:1-5; Galatians
5:19-21; Revelation 21:8). Those who reject His words
must heed the words of Genesis 1:1; John 14:6; Acts
2:38,39; 1 Corinthians 6:11,15-20; Titus 2:11-14). God's
children must heed the words of Philippians 2:12-16.
"God forbid: yea, let God be found true, but every
man a liar; as it is written, 'That thou might be justified
in thy words, and might prevail when thou comes into
judgment'" (Romans 3:4).

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers
Comfort foods...boy do we believe in comfort food here in the South. Com-
fort foods are at the core of our Southern culture. Many of our most loved
recipes have been handed down from generation to generation.
Many of our most cherished recipes come from a time long past. A time
when the South could barely sustain itself after a brutal war that nearly ripped
our country in two. After the war the South was left starving. The small
amount of food left in the smokehouse was valued and rationed as never
before. A quarter slab of salt cured pork belly and a double hand full of dried
black-eyed peas became a special Southern tradition. A tradition that we still
dine on today, such as our tradition of eating black- eyed peas and greens on
New Years day.
My father loved to dip his cornbread in pot liquor while his father on the
other hand loved a fresh glass of buttermilk with a slice of cornbread crum-
bled in it. Both are considered comfort foods here.
Soon we will find an abundance of green tomatoes at roadside stands, the
farmers' markets or our own gardens. Fried green tomatoes came to national
attention when the movie Fried Green Tomatoes was released in 1991. But
the fact is, fried green tomatoes have been a comfort food here in the 'South
for many, many generations.
The following recipe for fried green tomatoes is real simple but just right.
I first ate tomato conserve on my fried green tomatoes at the Bullock House
Restaurant in Warm Springs, Georgia. Let me tell you, .we have returned
many times to eat their wonderful buffet. The buffet is really good but it's the
fried green tomatoes and the tomato conserves that we return for time after
time.
I don't have their original recipe but I think the following recipe is pretty
close. The folks at the Bullock house add a couple of good shakes from the
ol' Tabasco bottle. When the crispy fried green tomato hits your mouth you
get the crunch followed by the sweet tomato taste followed by just a touch of
heat. Man oh man...its great.


3 to 4 green tomatoes
salt
black pepper
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup flour
1 cup vegetable or peanut oil
Slice the tomatoes about 1/4 inch thick and season them. Pour flour and
corn meal in plate, season with additional salt and pepper and add the tomato
slices, coating each side evenly.
Meanwhile, heat the oil on medium high till hot enough to fry. Add just a
few tomato slices at a time. Fry until golden brown and drain on paper tow-
els. Serve immediately, with the following Tomato Conserve spooned on top,
about a tablespoon of conserve per tomato.

omato- Oofi&er&
8 pounds fresh tomatoes, skinned and quartered
2 cups apple cider vinegar
1 to 1 1/2 cup sugar
salt
freshly ground black pepper
'Combine the tomatoes, vinegar, and 1 cup sugar with salt a'id pepper to
taste in a heavy saucepan. Simmer until the mixture is thick enough to cling
to a spoon, about 1 1/2 hours. Taste and, if desired add some of the remaining
sugar and don't forget to hit it with a little Tabasco. This will keep in the
refrigerator for a couple weeks.

A few thoughts on Oak
Landing
I find it truly amazing that the de-
velopers of the proposed Oak Land-
ing development consider the county
commissioners of both Alachua and
Gilchrist counties to be such hay
seeds.
I say this because the number of
homes that are planned for the de-
velopment are one less number of
homes to avoid state regulation. This
is a total red flag for me and I am sure
others of you who question this kind
of business practice. Why do these
developers want to skirt state regula-
tion? You be the judge. If this is the
first and most obvious issue that the
crowd from South' Florida want '-to
'put over on-the-commissionerswhat
else do they have up their sleeves'?
Can we allow an unscrupulous group
to run roughshod over the natural
resources that Gilchrist and Alachua
counties are so proud of?

26, 2008 at his home in Hatchbend,
Lafayette County.
Mr. Hurst was an active member
of the Gilchrist County Farm Bu-
reau and worked with the Bell FFA
as an advisor for many years. Some
of you may recall the eggs sold from
the chicken house, the bedding plants
sold for those vegetable gardens, or
the lumber that was treated and fence
posts sold by the FFA. Many in the
area will remember him as the unoffi-
cial guidance counselor for the coun-
ty helping students get into college,
training programs, or get into .the
job market. He helped secure funds
for many students through the years
before the Education Foundation was
formed in the county.
His children, Mary Bohannon of
Gainesville, Cora Lord of Trenton,
Diane Wasdin of Waldo, Andy Hurst
of Releigh, North Carolina, and Kar-
en Duda of Fort Myers will be hosting
a celebration on Saturday afternoon,
April 26 from 2 to 4 p.m. at his home.
He lives on the Bethel Walker Creek

By Carrie A. Mizell
Though she never aspired to be
a barrel racer or a bronco rider,
Lyndsay Ayers did volunteer to work
at the FFA Alumni "Rodeo while in
high school.
As a Trenton FFA member, Ayers
showed fat steers at the Suwannee
River Fair, competed in dairy judg-
ing and land judging competitions
and even presented demonstrations
on topics like how to make herb but-
ter, but she never sought to compete
in the local rodeo.
"I remember sitting through the
pouring rain as a spectator at the ro-
deo," Ayers said. "And working the
old concession."
Ayers' years of hard work paid off
in 2001 when she was awarded an
FFAAlumni Scholarship at her gradu-
ation from Trenton High School. The
summer after graduation, Ayers went
to work in the Gilchrist County Clerk
of Court's office part time while pur-
suing her college education at Santa
Fe Community College, where she


obtained a two-year' degree before
transferring to the University of
Florida. After graduating UF with a
B.S. in Food and Resource Econom-
ics, Ayers began working full time as
a deputy clerk for Gilchrist County
Clerk of Court Joe Gilliam in 2005.
Today, Ayers attributes much of
her success in life to her years spent
being actively involved in FFA.
"FFA helped prepare me for the
workforce because I had to get up in
front of people and talk while giv-
ing demonstrations and that was not
something I was used to doing be-
fore," Ayers said. "It also helped me
tie into the community. I was able to
meet a lot of people and make con-
nections."
The community is asked to support
the youth of Gilchrist County by at-
tending the annual FFA Alumni Ro-
deo on Friday, April 11 and Saturday,
April 12 beginning at 8 p.m. each
night. The rodeo will be held at the
Trenton Bell Covered Arena on Hwy.
129.

Trenton FFA at "Aq on the Hill"


Katelyn Turner and Courtney Martin

Trenton Beta Club participated

in March of Dimes Walk Babies


It was an early Saturday morning
when the Trenton Beta Club faithful
few met to join the March of Dimes
Walk for Babies.
Katelyn Turner and Courtney Mar-
tin joined sponsor, Sue Reed, and
over 6,000 others in Gainesville, on
March 29. The crisp weather made
walking easy as did the many spon-
sors' rest areas which offered water,
drinks, snacks and entertainment.
The Beta Club got a late start (Jan-
uary) but received several on-line do-
nations. At 8 a.m., the walk began;
Mrs. Reed tuckered out at mile 5.4,
but Courtney and Katelyn walked the


entire 8.7 miles.
This is the third service project that
Trenton Beta members have been
involved in. They raised $100 for
MDA and are still fund raising for
Relay for Life to be held in Chiefland
on May 2.
You can still donate to March of
Dimes, MDA or Relay for Life ei-
ther online or drop a donation by
the school. Each of these organiza-
tions' donations stay in the local area
to assist North Central Floridians.
Congratulations girls, and way to go
Trenton Beta Club.

Tigers qo 2-1 this week; Just


by Brandon McElroy
While some were relaxing and
hanging out at the fair, the Tigers
were busy at work. They knew they
had to be on top of their game this
week with a double header against
Countryside on Thursday and a
District matchup against Mayo on
Friday. The Tigers had previously
traveled to Countryside only for the
game to be delayed
by rain. To make up
for that delay, the
'Tigers played 2 five-
inning games with a
20 minute break in
between games. The
first game's final
score was 7-0 Ti- 4
gers as Caleb Smith
pitched all 5 innings,
had 5 strikeouts, and
was only hit 4 times. The defense
really bowed their neck and backed
Smith up in his endeavors. The
support of the bats swinging also
contributed to Smith's confidence
and swagger on the mound. Ryan
Schmitz went 2-2 while Andy Jones
and Chance Brooks both went 2-3
at the plate while CJ Bowers drove
in 2 runs.
As the heat of summer sunk into
the Tigers, the umpire gave the go-
ahead to play ball. The Tigers put
the other Smith on the mound for
the second game of the two game
series. Trey Smith also threw a
good game with 7 strikeouts and
a ratio of 104 pitches to 74 strikes.
The Tigers really found the bats
in this series. Bowers and Alvarez
lead the way in batting average as


8 walks against the Union Co pitch-
ing. Stephen Smith had 3 walks, Ce-
dric Stokes had two singles, Jonathan
Smith had a single and a double, Clif
Bryant had two singles and a double,
Jonathan Rowe singled, Hunter Wil-
liams had two singles, Brett Colson
singled, and Hunter Parrish had two
singles. TMS scored 15 runs in six
innings. TMS started Brett Colson
on the mound. Colson pitched 2 1/3
innings, giving up one 'hit, struck
out one, and gave up five walks and
three runs. Corbin Wiggins followed ;
Colson and pitched '2 2/3 innings.
Wiggins pitched well, giving up no


they both batted a perfect 1.000%.
Following close behind those two
were Ryan Schmitz and Billy Ow-
ens batting 2-3 (.667%). The Tigers
held on to win a close one by the
final score of your Trenton Tigers 9
and Countryside 8.
Friday, the lights came on, the
P.A. system was rockin' and the
two teams were ready to lay their
dignity and pride on
the field. The Tigers
^came out wired for
sound keeping the.
score 1-0 Hornets
for 5 innings. In-
nings went by quick-
ly because they were
mostly 3 up, 3 down
innings. The Tigers
struggle wasn't hit-
ting the ball; the
struggle was hitting it in the gaps.
They were hitting the ball hard, but
right to the defender to make the
"easy outs. Jones and Bowers lead
the way in batting average both hit-
ting a .500%. The game started to
slip out of reach in the 6th as Mayo
was able to score 4 runs whereas the
Tigers only scored 2. Mayo tacked
on another 2 runs in the 7th lock-
ing the game up with a final score
of 7-2 Lafayette. A big reason why
the Tigers weren't able to come out
victorious was because of 5 errors.
This loss knocks the Tigers to 9-9
overall and 6-5 in league play.
The Tigers play Dixie County
home on Thursday and travel to
Perry on Friday to face the Taylor
County BULLDOGS and to seek
out revenge!


hits, one walk, no runs, and struck
out one. Cedric Stokes pitched the
sixth inning, giving up two walks,
but striking out two and allowing no
runs. TMS won the second contest
15-3 and improved their record to 12-
1. TMS would travel to Bronson on
April 7th for its final two games.
TMS Baseball vs Bronson MS
On Monday, April 7th, TMS trav-
eled to Bronson to face the Eagles.
TMS came into the series 12-1 and
wanted to finish the season strong.
TMS got plenty of offense from its
hitters, 'scoring 17 runs on*15 hits
and 9 walks. Stephen Smith sin-
gled, Cedric Stokes tripled, Jona-
than Smith walked twice, Clif Bry-
ant singled twice, Kane Crosby had

Progress Energy announces

authorization to purchase

long-lead material for

Levy County nuclear plant


submitted
, Progress Energy Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Progress Energy, has an-
nounced that it has signed a letter of
intent with Westinghouse Electric
Company and The Shaw Group Inc.'s
Power Group. The LOI authorizes the
purchase of long-lead-time materials
for up to two Westinghouse AP1000
reactors at the Levy County, Florida
site. The company has not yet entered
into an Engineering, Procurement,
ahd Construction contract.
' "This is a prudent next step that
will help us remain on schedule and
preserve favorable pricing for key
components," said Jeff Lyash, presi-
dent and CEO of Progress Energy
Florida. "The need for electricity
is driving our schedule, and we are
committed to providing safe, reliable
power to our customers now and in
the future. We believe that carbon-
flee nuclear power is an investment
i4 securing our state's energy future,
and today's announcement is another
milestone in meeting that objective."
i Westinghouse President and CEO
Steve Tritch complimented Progress
Energy Florida for its foresight in
moving to pursue long-lead materi-
als. "This agreement brings the U.S.
new-build renaissance one step clos-
er to implementation," he said. "We
look forward to a strong and mutu-
ally supportive relationship with our
valued customer."
"Clearly, the resurgence of nuclear
power generation is under way, and
Progress Energy is a leader in plan-
ning new nuclear power plant con-
struction. This project would help
diversify Florida's energy portfolio
and help meet the growing demand
for electricity. in an emission-free
and cost-effective manner," said J.M.
Bernhard Jr., Shaw's chairman, presi-
dent and chief executive officer.
Progress Energy Florida submitted
a filing with the Florida Public Ser-
vice Commission on March 11, 2008,
outlining its need for additional elec-
tricity and proposing to meet that
need with two nuclear units in Levy
County. The PSC has scheduled hear-
ings on the project in late May, and
the company has previously stated


an expectation to file a Combined
Operating License application with
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission
sometime this summer. No final deci-
sion has been made to proceed with
the Levy County project.
If approved and built, the project
wotld be among the first nuclear
plants in the country to be construct-
ed on a greenfield site in more than
30 years, and would involve devel-
opment of one of the single largest
transmission infrastructure projects
in Florida's history.
In 2006, Progress Energy Florida
announced the selection of 3,100
acres in southern Levy County for
the potential construction of nuclear
reactors. The, company has been a
longstanding partner in the county's
growth and development. The site's
proximity to the company's existing
Crystal River nuclear plant will pro-
vide opportunities for efficiencies in
shared support functions at both fa-
cilities.
Nuclear power is one of three criti-
cal components of the company's
balanced solution to meeting its cus-
tomers' energy needs over the long
term, which also includes the use of
renewable energy sources, and an en-
ergy efficient program.

Mel Tillis hosts 2nd
annual "Fishing with
Mel" Tournament and
Concert in Steinhatchee
It all began with legendary country
music star and entertainer Mel Tillis
reading a small advertisement about
the great fishing in Steinhatchee. As
a result, the small fishing community
and the Big Bend area may never be
the same.
This year Mel Tillis, the king of
country music and comedy, has once
again partnered with the Steinhatchee
River Corporation to host the sec-
ond "Mel Tillis and Friends Fishing
Tournament" at Gulfstream Marina
in Steinhatchee on Saturday, April
12, 2008. Total prize money (based
on a 400 angler field) will be up to
$22,500. Entry fees are $75 per per-
son. As before, all proceeds from this
event will go to benefit the Shriner's
Hospitals for Children, with a dona-
tion to the local Steinhatchee School.
,'Mel has, invited other major cqun~
try stars along with sports figures and
actors," says Susan Parker, Tourna-
ment Coordinator. "He tries to fish
out of Gulfstream Marina often, and
the community is excited about host-
ing the event again this year."

Heart Matters


"He who dies with the most toys,
wins." No doubt you've seen this
bumper sticker that expresses the
theme for our culture...more. Greed
is the supplier and source for this
"more" and the second of the dan-
gerous enemies to our hearts and re-
lationships we want to expose in our
"spring cleaning."
The definition of greed is an exces-
sive desire for wealth or gain that can
never be satisfied...enough is never
enough. In Ecclesiastes 5:10, the
Bible says: "Whoever loves money
never has money enough; whoever
loves wealth is never satisfied with
his income..." The real issue here is
not money, but the love of it. Simply
put, greed is about not being satisfied
with what we have, and believing
that we will be satisfied when we get
"more."
"People who want to get rich fall
into temptation and a trap and into
many foolish and harmful desires that
plunge men into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is the root of
all kinds of evil. Some people, eager
for money have wandered from their
faith and pierced themselves with
many griefs." (1 Timothy 6:9-10)
It is interesting that the Bible calls
the love of money the "root" of all
evil. On a tree, we can see the leaves,
bark and branches, but not the root...
it is the hidden part. Greed is not an
action that we can see, but a motive
behind our decisions. This can make
greed hard to detect in our lives be-


cause we are skilled in hiding those
motives and justifying our- actions.
However, we cannot hide them from
God... and we should be grateful for
that. Left alone, greed can leave us
miserably unsatisfied and can cause
serious damage in our relationships.
According to Proverbs 15:27, "A
greedy man brings trouble to his
family..." I'm sure that you could
make your own list of troubles that
greed can bring to a family, but here
are a few I came up with: becoming
a workaholic -that never sees your
family, quarrelling with family mem-
bers over the inheritance of a loved
one, stealing from your employer,
cheating on your taxes, withholding
money from someone in need and
neglecting giving to your church. In
making these choices we may think
.we will get ahead, but the truth is
we lose so much more than we gain:
relationships, trust, respect, a good
name and God's blessings. The good
news is we don't have to give in to
greed, selfish ambition or hidden mo-
tives to get what we need. Philippians
4:19 holds the promise...
"and my God will meet all your
needs, according to His glorious
riches in Christ Jesus."
Ask God to search your heart for
any hidden motives of greed, to for-
give you and to help you battle this
enemy of your heart and relation-
ships. Trust Him keep this promise...
because your heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

Book lovers converge on
Gainesville
The spring edition of the Friends of
the Library Book Sale begins Satur-
day, April 19 at 9 a.m. at 430 N. Main
Street in Gainesville, as the little sale
that's grown into a major event for
book lovers continues its 54-year tra-
dition.
The sale originally began with the
sale of a few boxes of donated books
and library discards. It is now held
twice a year and attracts book lovers
and book sellers from up and down
the East Coast and beyond who feast
on its huge and diverse collection.
By the time the doors open Sat-
urday the line of early bird shoppers
will snake through the parking lot
and stretch for blocks down N. Main
Street. The goal is to get a first peek
at the supermarket size collection of
used books packed into the build-
ing known as the Bookhouse. Many
shoppers will spend the night in the
parking lot or arrive in the pre-dawn
darkness for the privilege.
The dealers and collectors will be
looking for th rare rareeditions, like
the first edition copies from John
Steinbeck and Lewis Carroll in this
spring's sale. But it's not just exotic
books that bring the crowds. Parents

Dwight Singleton is a powerful communicator to the church. Raised in the ghettos of
Winter Park, Fl., Dwight struggled in his teen years to discover his purpose in life. At the
age of 16 he found his purpose: Jesus Christ.
Dwight was discipled under the Student Ministry of First Baptist Church Orlando, where
he was called to full time ministry. As a fulltime Evangelist, Dwight finds his spiritual
encouragement from brothers and sisters at Aloma Baptist Church in Winter Park, FL.
God has gifted him with a heart and vision for the church. Dwight preaches "Jesus" from
a heart broken for a society virtually untouched by radical Christianity. His message is
clear, Jesus is the only way! He boldly challenges the church to follow New Testament
Christianity. Come and hear this dynamic speaker.

by Danielle Burkette,
'2)07 LCCC graduate
afd TS1C recipient
I have been a part of the Take Stock
1 Children (TSIC) program since the
Eighth grade. When 1 was selected, I
,'as promised a full tuition college
scholarship to attend Lake City Com-
minity College (LCCC), enrichment
activities, and was assigned a mentor
,'ho would meet with me weekly.
n return, I had to maintain at least
2.0 grade point average, stay drug
ind criine-free, adhere to the school
de of conduct, and graduate high
school.
Being a part of this program has
changed my life for the better, so
f'd like to share the difference it has
made in my life and persuade other
eighth graders to pursue the same
opportunity. Being selected for this
scholarship so early gave me the mo-
itivation to do well in high school and
become the first person in my fam-
ily to go to college. I was able to
(do this because of the services TSIC
ptvided. Throughout high school, I
ad a mentor, Deanna, whom I talked
to and she helped me with homework
I'[ needed it, as well as any other
issues I had, which were very impor-
Oant to me.
Not only has TSIC helped me
pursue my goals, but it has also
helped my family, especially my
other. After seeing the wonderful
experiences and education I received
t LCCC, she decided to go back to
school. She is now finishing her sec-
nd semester at LCCC, and I couldn't
e more proud of her than I am now.


Eighth grade students and parents
of Baker, Columbia, Dixie, GiAthrist,
and Union counties now is the time
to complete and return your applica-
tions to your respective school coun-
selors since the deadline is April 13,
2008! TSIC provides full tuition
scholarships for selected eighth grad-
ers, whose families meet the income
guidelines for free or reduced lunch.
Students do not have to be receiv-
ing free or reduced lunch, simply be
eligible. If your child did not receive
an application, you may pick one up
from the LCCC Foundation located
at 443 E. Duval Street in Lake City,
Florida.
Mentors are continuously needed to
match with a student before a schol-
arship can even be assigned, so if you
are interested and available to mentor
at your local school, at least 30 min-
utes a week, please contact the LCCC
Foundation/TSIC Program Special-
ist, Rena Violette, at (386) 754-4392.
Training will be provided.
If you would like to invest in a stu-
dent's future, this is possible through
private contributions, planned gifts,
payroll deductions, and special event
fundraising. These funds are usually
matched 100 percent by the state of
Florida and Florida Prepaid Founda-
tion. The S&S Invitational Charities
Golf Tournament will again be held
in April this year, which has been a
large contributor to both the LCCC
Foundation and the TSIC program.

Requests By April 15
Filing Deadline
The Internal Revenue Service to-
day urged taxpayers who need ad-
ditional time -to complete their tax
returns to submit their requests for
an automatic extension electronically
by April 15. E-filing a request for an
extension is convenient, safe and se-
cure, and taxpayers receive Confirma-
tion to keep with their records.
The extension gives taxpayers until
Oct. 15 to file the tax return. An ex-
tension does not give the taxpayer an
extension of time to pay. Those who


owe taxes can make a payment when
they file the extension either by mail-
ing a check or by several electronic
payment methods, such as electronic
funds withdrawals from bank ac-
counts and credit card payments.
Some taxpayers can wait until after
April 15 to file a return, pay any taxes
due and make IRA contributions for
2007. As a general rule, those eligible
get the extra time without having to
ask for it. Eligible taxpayers include:
Members of the military serving in
Iraq, Afghanistan or other combat
zone localities. Normally, the post-
ponement is until 180 days after the
service member leaves the combat
zone. Disaster-area taxpayers in
four states affected by recent floods,

ment is until May 6 in parts of Illi-

parts of Missouri and May 27. in'parts
of Arkansas.
IRS expects to receive 10.3 million
extension requests during 2008 com-
pared with 10 million extensions re-
ceived during 2007. The IRS expects
to receive almost 2 million extension
requests electronically this year.
Taxpayers can get an automatic six-
month extension of time to file their
tax returns by filing Form 4868,,Au-
tomatic Extension of Time to File.
It is also important for extension
filers to remember that Oct. 15 is not
only the due date for their tax returns,
it is also the last date on which a re-
turn can be filed that will result in an
economic stimulus payment. Taxpay-
ers who file earlier, however, will get
their economic stimulus payments
sooner.
Taxpayers can e-file the extension
from a home computer or through a
tax professional who uses e-file. Tax-
payers can e-file their extensions at
no cost. Some companies offer free
e-filing of extensions through Free
File; these companies are listed on
IRS.gov.

Newberry Lions Club
Walk for Autism
Research
The Newberry Lions Club would
like to announce our third annual
Walk for Autism Research.
Preparations are now underway
for the event which will be held on
Saturday, April 19, 2008 at the Oak
View Middle School track. The track
is located directly behind the school
at 1203 SW 250th Street in New-
berry. Registration will begin at 9:30
a.m. and the walk will follow. We
will have live entertainment, door
prizes and lots of refreshments. We
are looking for individuals and/or
teams of walkers who want to par-
ticipate and raise funds for this im-
portant cause. All proceeds will go to
"Autism Speaks" to fund research to
find a cure.
Children are not the only victims
of this condition. Our whole society


is now being affected. Currently 1 in
150 children (1 in 94 boys) will de-
velop Autism by age 3. Many of the
children affected by Autism are now
in our public schools where they need
aides and special methods to teach
them. It is imperative that we find the
cause or causes of Autism so that we
can find a cure.
Please support our walk by partici-
pating, donating, and asking others
to do the same. All checks should be
made payable to "Autism Speaks."
For more information please call Lion
Carolyn Elliot at (352) 472-4335.
Thank you for support.
Sincerely,
Lion Carolyn Elliott
Chairperson

Live as if you expected to live a
hundred years, but might die tomor-
row.

Florida Peanut
Producers scholarships
The Florida Peanut Producers As-
sociation is pleased to announce the
opening of their 2008 Scholarship
Award Program, effective April 1,
2008.
Two $1,200 scholarships will be
awarded to deserving high school se-
niors and/or college students. The ap-
plicant or someone in the applicant's
family must be an actively producing
peanut grower in Florida, not neces-
sarily a member of the FPPA. It is
the intent of the Scholarship Award
Committee, however, that the award
recipients attend a Florida junior col-
lege or four-year university.
Each winner will receive $600
when the scholarship winners are an-
nounced. The remaining $600 will be
awarded after the completion of one


semester and documentation of pass-
ing grades is submitted to the FPPA
Office.
"The Florida Peanut Producers
Association is committed to helping
further the education of young peo-
ple in Florida and the scholarship is
evidence of our commitment," said
Ken Barton, Executive Director of
the FPPA.
"The FPPA welcomes all appli-
cants. The final- selection will be
made by the scholarship committee
and all applicants will be notified by
mail," said Barton.
For an application contact the
FPPA office at 2741 Penn Ave. Suite
1, Marianna, FL 32448 or call (850)
526-2590 or visit the FPPA website at
www.flpeanuts.com.
FPPA scholarship applications
must be postmarked no later than
July 1, 2008.

This is another zway to put the Log Cabin together. Color makes all
quilts look different.


U' TLOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
April 2 at the Levy County Quilt Mu-
seum. One quilt out and one started.
We now have the Log Cabin Quilt to
be given away in December in the
frame and it should be finished by
June. We will be putting another one
in as we usually have four quilts that
are being worked on. How good it
was to see Goldie back the quilt she
is doing.
Pat Osowiecki has been in an acci-
dent but is doing well. Joy Mc Craney
-' is recovering from being hit several
weeks ago. She has broken bones and
it will be a while until she can sew


again. We do a lot of praying as there
is so much to be taken care of.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and our garden is growing. We
hope everyone will plant as the price
of everything is going up and there is
nothing like picking a tomato off the
vine. We have seed planted in every
space we can find. Now we wait to
see it come up.
Lunch was so good with meat loaf,

Card Of Thanks
Dear Friends,
We lack the ability to adequately
express our gratitude for the many
months of prayers you offered for
Harrison. They were answered time
and time again, and we were blessed
to have him for 14 months after doc-
tors assured us he could not possibly
survive; they didn't count on God's
grace and your prayers. Your cards,
letters, visits, flowers and food have
encouraged us and re-enforced the
joy that we have in living among
you.
Thank you,
The Harrison Schofield Family


Snail-eradication
efforts close Windsor
boat ramp on Newnans
Lake
The Windsor boat ramp on Newn-
ans Lake will be closed April 10 and
11 to eradicate island apple snails.
According to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) biologists, the snails that.
were missed by treatments late last
year have resumed laying eggs as the
temperatures get warmer.
"Officials from the St. Johns River
Water Management District, FWC
and the University of Florida have.
discussed the current situation and
agreed it's imperative to conduct
another treatment before the snail
population moves out of the Windsor
ramp area," said Allen Martin, FWC
regional freshwater fish biologist.
This requires closing the Windsor
ramp during the treatment. The ramp
and canal are scheduled to re-open
April 12.
"We realize that Newnans is a very
popular fishing spot right now, and
closing the ramp and canal for two
days may not be a popular decision,"
Martin said. "Although there were
no problems with a fish kill during
the previous treatment, the possibil-
ity does exist. However, these snails
must be dealt with before they move
to other areas such as Paynes Prairie,
. Orange Lake and Lochloosa Lake."
These mollusks have huge ap-
petites and can strip large areas of
aquatic vegetation in Florida's water-
ways. Equipped with both a gill and
lung, they may migrate short distanc-
es on land. One female can lay a new
clutch of approximately 1,000 eggs
every 10 to 14 days. The snails can
reach reproductive size within six to
eight weeks.
"The snails can grow as large as
baseballs," Martin said. "We believe
these snails in Newnans Lake were
released from aquariums. Their crav-
A


ing for aquatic vegetation is what
we're concerned with. We certainly
don't want to end up with 'wet des-
erts' for our lakes."
Four nonnative apple snail species
have been observed in Florida.
There is one species native to Flor-
ida, the Florida apple snail. This snail
is a critical food web component in
Florida. wetlands, contributing to the
diets of turtles, fish, alligators and
wading birds. Apple snails are most
notably the exclusive food source of
the endangered Florida snail kite.
Island apple snail populations have
been documented from South Florida
to Tallahassee. Large populations
have been found near Tampa, Or-
lando, Jacksonville and Tallahassee.
Snails have also been introduced in
Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina,
Texas, Arizona, California and Ha-
waii.
The channeled apple snail has been
documented in only one site in North
Florida.
The spike-topped apple snail is
marketed as an aquarium species
("golden apple snail") and is locally
abundant in South Florida.
The Titan apple snail is rare in
Florida.
"There is one main thing that Flor-
ida residents and visitors can do to
help, us: out with these'island apple
snails," Martin said. "Never release
snails into the waters of Florida.
If you have one in your aquarium,
please keep it there."

and their eggs, go to MyFWC.com/

'PET OF THE WEEK'

Hello, my name is Bucket. I got
that name for a very good reason.
You can call Gilchrist County E-
Animal Services and find out
why!
My last owners moved away and left me and the kind people of
Gilchrist County have taken very good care of me until I can find
my fur-ever home, could that be with you? I am about 3 to 4 years
old and I get along well with other dogs. If you would like to meet
me please call Gilchrist County Animal Services at
352-463-3158. Thank you for looking at me!
There are 45 cats and dogs for every person born. Only 1 out of 10
dogs born ever gets a home. Only 1 out of 12 cats born ever find a
home. 800 dogs & cats are KILLED each HOUR in the U.S,
because there are not enough homes for them. Opt to adopt.

Agriculture Literacy Day will be celebrated Thursday


Flooding has blocked NE 10th Street in Trenton for some time. The
road closure has directly affected businesses like the Gilchrist Grill
which was forced to close due to lack of business.

Trenton City Commission

will not close NE 10th Street
By Cindy JoAyers
NE 10th Street was back on the agenda at the Trenton City Council meet-
ing Monday night. The much discussed street has been closed off and on over
the last several months due to flooding.
The problem appears to be the run off caused by Hwy. 26 and several prop-
erties that are at a higher elevation than 10th Street.
NE 10th Street was back on the agenda because the city had received a
letter from the Suwannee River Water Management District concerning solv-
ing the problem of the flooding street. One of the solutions discussed was to
buy land from an adjoining land owner and make a water retention area. The
Suwannee River Water Management District has been working with the city
for sometime trying to rectify the flooding problem. The Water Management
District was willing to pay for the property for the retention area, but the
seller felt the land was worth more than the District's appraisal which was
based on properties outside of Gilchrist County.
The City Commissioners at one time discussed paying the difference be-
tween the appraisal and what the property owner Paul Redd was requesting
which was $25,000.
Paul Redd who owns property that fronts 10th Street attended the meeting
to let the Commissioners know how he felt about the suggestion of closing
10th Street which was made in a letter from the Water Management District.
The letter read in part, "There have been previous discussions of closing
NE 10th Street to serve as a retention area. This. option is one that the District
would like to pursue if unanimous approval of the City Commission is grant-
ed. If this is done the District and City can then pursue a design that would
use NE 10th Street as a retention basin. If the City does not want to close the
street, the district believes that installing an underground infiltration system
in the City Right of Way would be an acceptable alternative."
Ultimatly the city commissioners were not in favor of closing 10th Street.
Redd told the commissioners that a large volume of traffic uses 10th Street
daily. After telling the commissioners that this problem has dragged on way
too long, he also said, "I feel the city is balking, lets just fix it."
City Manager Jered Ottenwess said on Tuesday morning that the commis-
sioners wanted him to proceed with the underground infiltration system that
the Suwannee River Water Management District has offered to design. He
had already contacted the Water Management District. Ottenwess asked on
behalf of the city to proceed with the design for the system. During the dis-
cuibn of this underground infiltration s stem it was said to be about half as,
effective as a retention area.

Budget cuts close
forestry academy
in Levy County
The Forestry Youth Academy in
Goethe State Forest is being closed.
Thirty-five area jobs will be lost as
a result of this closure.

around 30 juvenile offenders, but
most will graduate this year and the
few left will be relocated.
The Academy was formed in 1996
to help teenage males finish their
high school education and learn vo-
cational skills.
Funding came fromt he Division
of Forestry and the Department of
Juvenile Justice. The Department of
Juvenile Justice is seeing large bud-
get cuts and job losses statewide due
to budget tightening.

School age children will get a les-
son on where the food on the table
comes from on Thursday as hundreds
of farmers, growers and 4-H lead-
ers from throughout the state drop
by school classrooms to read a chil-
dren's book about farming to students
in celebration of Florida Agriculture
Literacy Day.
This year's reading selection is
titled "These Florida Farms." The
children's book was developed by the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services' Division of
Marketing to honor Florida Agricul-
ture Literacy Day's fifth anniversary.
The children's book, which was writ-
ten and illustrated-by Gary Seamans
and Mike Wright, is a rhyming book
that chronicles the adventures of two
students who follow a safari guide
from a grocery store to farms around
the state to learn about the different

commodities produced in Florida.
"We're excited about reading our
own book for Agriculture Literacy
Day this year which is a great way
to teach students, who are several
generations removed from the farm,
about the many commodities Florida
farmers produce," Florida Agricul-
ture Commissioner Charles Bronson
said.
Trenton Elementary School Prin-
cipal Jean Ledvina and Bell Elemen--
tary School Principal Rick Reed said
FFA members from Trenton Middle
High School and Bell High School
will visit the schools on Thursday
morning to read to students at TES
and BES.
While the deadline for volunteers
to apply for this year's event has
passed industry volunteers can read
after April 10, but Florida Ag in the
Classroom officials ask that the read-
ings be completed by the end of the

FWC calls for land conservation funding


The Florida Wildlife Federation
said today that the time has come for
bold and visionary leadership to se-
cure Florida's last remaining wildlife
and water resource lands.
The Federation has championed
a proposal now pending before the
state's Taxation and Budget Reform
Commission that would dedicate 35
percent of revenues from the existing
documentary stamp tax-the state's
tax on real estate transactions-to
a land and water conservation trust
fund.
The money would pay for land
acquisition, restoration and manage-
ment, including the funding for res-
toration of the Everglades, and pay
back previously issued land conser-
vation bonds.
"We don't have time to put off pre-
serving critical environmental lands
in Florida, no matter the state of our
current budget," asserted Florida
Wildlife Federation President Man-
ley Fuller. "If we neglect to pursue


preservation of these lands, especial-
ly now when the real estate market
favors public acquisition, we risk los-
ing the essential lands and waters all
succeeding generations have to have
to survive. We've got to commit the
dollars now."
Florida Forever, the state's 10-year,
$3 billion public land conservation
program has received full funding
annually since the passage of its pre-
decessor, Preservation 2000 in 1990.
That commitment made by succes-
sive governors and legislators shows
incredible steadfastness on the part of
Florida's leaders and their adherence
to the wishes of Floridians to protect
the state's best natural resources.
But now Florida Forever is out of
funds and no plan for a successor to
the program is in the works.
That's why the Federation and
other conservation groups are calling
for a long-term commitment to fund-
ing through the Taxation and Bud-
get Reform Commission, which is

Fair. Kaley's pig weighed in at 265 pounds and sold for $5.50 per pound. This
is the second time Kaley has exhibited the show's Grand Champion Hog. In
2006 she also took the grand prize for the hog show. The buyer of her hog
was Tarmac America, LLC.
Tyler Johnson of Dixie Sr. FFA Chapter sold his 275 pound hog for $18.00
per pound which set a new hog show record. The buyers of Tyler's hog were
Sanchez Farms, LLC, Dixie Waste Services, Boland Timber, Dixie Chevro-
let, Flint Equipment, Dewey Hatcher Sheriff of Dixie County and Capital
City Bank.
This year's fair was also the longest in its 56-year history, beginning on
March 6 and running off and on until April 2. The fair dates were sporadic be-
cause the Suwannee River Fair Board worked the Fair around Easter Sunday
which came unusually early this year and FCAT testing at the schools.

seated only once every twenty years
to review and suggest changes to the
state's revenue and spending plans.
If the Commission approves the
proposal, known as Constitutional
Proposal 0024, the measure would be
placed before Florida's voters in the
November General Election. Pas-
sage requires 60 percent approval by
the electorate voting on it.
"Time is of the essence here. We
can protect more land for less money,
and set aside the funds to manage and
restore these critical lands now, before
they are lost forever," said Fuller. We
must act now and I believe voters in
the state of Florida will agree."
