2008 deemed a dismal year for area watermelon growers


By Carrie A. Mizell
What in recent years has started as
a month of watermelon revelry, June
2008 may be remembered as grim
with area growers bracing for the
fallout that comes from having more
supply than there is demand.
"This week is going to tell the tale,"
said Anthony Drew, Levy County ex-
tension agent. "Growers will have to
pick this week and the market will
have to recover big time this week."
According to Drew and Gilchrist
County Extension Agent Marvin
Weaver, the 2,500 to 3,000 acres in


Gilchrist County that are currently
planted in watermelons have yielded
a fairly good crop in terms of produc-
tion.
Problems range from unseason-
ably cool and windy weather in April
that slowed watermelon growth and
brought lackluster pollination to sky-
rocketing fuel and fertilizer costs.
A great deal of a growers' inven-
tory needs to be harvested before the
Memorial Day lull for the farmers
to break even, explained Drew. For
many local growers, loading water-
melons prior to the Memorial Day


holiday was just not possible this
year.
According to Drew, watermelons
were bringing just 10 cents a pound
at the end of last week.
"The market hasn't been strong
from the get go," Drew said. "Ini-
tially there were no orders and then
people dropped the prices down and
now the price is in the pits."
Standard reasons for the depressed
price range from economic problems
to cooler temperatures in the north-
east last week suppressed the demand
and to some consumers watermelon


is considered a luxury item.
"A lot of farmers are having to pay
a fuel surcharge," Drew said. "The
increased freight cost is being passed
back to the farmers."
Whatever the cause may be, both
Drew and Weaver agree that many
area farmers will not be able to take
another disappointing year like 2008
has turned out to be.
"I just don't know how many will
be able to continue growing water-
melons," Drew said. "Fertilizer has
gone up three and four fold and with
rising fuel prices ... I don't know.'Y


County will send Oak Tree Landing to DCA


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion was torn on whether to go along
with their planner Taylor Brown and
the recommendation by the Planning
Commission to deny submittal, or to
submit the proposed Oak Tree Land-
ing SAP to the Department of Com-
munity Affairs for information and
to hear how it will impact Gilchrist
County.
Commissioner Randy Durden ex-
plained to the audience following
the public information portion of
the meeting, that submitting this to
DCA would provide the Commission
with information that would allow
them to make better-informed deci-
sions for Gilchrist County. Durden
made the motion to submit the Oak
Tree Landing Special Area Plan to
the Department of Community Af-
fairs for informational purposes and
to receive information if this SAP is
actually a Development of Regional
Impact to Gilchrist County. Commis-
sioner Kenrick Thomas explained
that he would agree with the motion
for discussion. Commission chair-
man Tommy Langford opened the
floor once again to the public at 9:50
p.m. to give them an opportunity to
ask more questions of the board.


Rob Brinkman, a Gainesville resi-
dent who explained he is a member of
the Sierra Club, told the four-member
board they still have time to place this
issue on the August primary ballot to
have Gilchrist County residents indi-
cate by way of a straw poll if they are
in favor of this type of development.
Commissioner Sharon Langford told
the board that she -\ would be in favor
of this, but no action by the board
was taken on this proposal.
Commissioner Thomas told the
board and audience that the property
that is owned by the Stiles and Hel-
mos Partnership pays over $11,000
in property taxes and that a private
property owner has the*right to do
what they want to with their land.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
explained that she has listened to the
public in this meeting,
"I feel this is not in the best interest
of Nhbat Gilchrist County residents
want for our county," Langford said.
Gilchrist County Planner Tay-
lor Brown told the board, he would
love to see the Vision Process begin
tomorrow, but by submitting this to
DCA for recommendations and infor-
mation, the board can receive more
information that can help them make

Crawford and Harrison named FFA state star finalists


By Carrie A. Mizell
Brett Crawford and Racheal Har-
rison share more than a passion for
Florida agriculture, the two Trenton
Middle High School students are also
officers in the Trenton Sr. FFA Chap-
ter and both show cows throughout
the state.
Having been named Florida FFA
State Star Finalists, Brett and Racheal
will both take the stage next week at
the 80th Florida FFA State Conven-
tion in Orlando. They are among 20
FFA members to be named finalists
in the Stars Over Florida recognition
program. Brett and Racheal were
chosen from more than 200 appli-
cants statewide who were considered
during the selection process.
Each year the Stars Over Florida
recognition program recognizes stu-
dents with outstanding Supervised
Agricultural Experience (SAE) pro-
grams in five different categories:
agribusiness, agriscience, agricultur-
al placement, farmer and greenhand.
State FFA Advisor Belinda Chason
and two state FFA officers were
members of a state FFA appointed
team that visited Gilchrist County
in May to interview both Brett and

Racheal in an effort to decide who
will be named State Star Farmer and
State Star Greenhand.
"I had all my paperwork and re-
ceipts ready when they came out to
our farm for the interview ... I was
just waiting on their questions,"
Racheal said. "But they said, 'tell us
about yourself.' I had to sell my proj-
ect!"
Sixteen-year-old Racheal spent 90
minutes trying to summarize her five
years as an active FFA member, in-
cluding her heifers, beef proficiency

projects, public speaking experience
and the numerous judging contests
she has taken part in.
The daughter of Kenneth and Ju-
lie Harrison, Racheal and her family
moved to Gilchrist County from Bar-
tow when she was 8. Immediately,
Racheal joined 4-H and began show-
ing cows,' therefore the decision 'to
join FFA upon entering sixth grade
pwas an easy one for Racheal since her
family has farmed for as long as she
can remember.
"We've always had cows," Rache-


al said.
Two jersey cows, horses, steers
and eight Brahma cows, that Racheal
shows at fairs throughout the state all
reside at the Harrison's farm near Hart
Springs. Racheal's favorite Brahma
cow is "Lady" who acts more like a
puppy than a cow.
When she is not showing cows or
serving on a judging team, Racheal
enjoys playing softball, scrapbook-
ing and volunteering at Trenton El-
ementary School as a teacher cadet.
Racheal is also a member of the
school's Fellowship of Christian Stu-
dents club.
"After high school I'm leaning
towards elementary education, but I
may dual major in animal science,"
Racheal said.
For now Racheal is basking in the
glory of being selected as one of four
FFA members chosen as finalists for
State Star Greenhand.
"I was so excited when Mr. Bro-
ker told me," Racheal said. "I never
thought I would be in the top four in
the state."

The Trenton City. Commission
once again addressed the matter of
the closed Trenton Skate Park on
Monday.
For the past several months local
skate boarders as well as several of
their parents have been attending the
commission meetings faithfully try-
ing to have the skate park reopened.
The park, which is located in the
Trenton City Park in southeast Tren-
ton, was closed after numerous com-
plaints of rowdy behavior and the
use of inappropriate language were
reported.
City Attorney David Lang read
portions of an article that was pub-
lished in the Bar Journal in 2002 and
written on the liability of skate parks
to cities
According to Lang, the city would
be responsible for obtaining written
permission for skaters to skate in the
park. They would also have to make
sure the skaters don't skate above
their ability and have a doctors re-
lease for each skater. The city would
also have to provide someone to su-
pervise the skaters while they skated
at the city skate park. Someone would
have to inspect the equipment used at
the park to make sure it was in good
order.
Lang ultimately pointed out that
the city would have a great deal of
responsibility in maintaining a skate
park properly.
During the time the skate park was
open there were no lawsuits filed
against the city, Lang said.
City Manager Jered Ottenwess said
that having the park open would put
an extra burden on the city staff to su-
pervise and inspect the equipment.
Parent and skateboarding support-
er Travis Willis told the commission
that the police, department 'was lo-
cated next to the park and they could
check on the skate park to make sure
everything was all right.
"You are pushing these kids to
drugs and crime," Willis said.
Fellow parent Chad Corbin said


he has lived in Trenton for 37 years
and there is nothing for teeangers to
do here.
"Now you've taken it [the skate
park] away from them," Corbin said.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey said
that the law of averages would even-
tually catch up and there would be a
lawsuit. He went on to say that it was
the commission's responsibility to do
what was best for all the citizens of
Trenton and lawsuits could damage
the cit) financially.
Mayor Glen Thigpen said there has
been a lot of complaints about the
skateboarders and it has been a con-
cern to the 'city. Thigpen stated that
skate boarding has become such a
concern that it might be best to dis-
courage it in the city.
According' to Thigpen, many
residents complained that the skate-
boarders had been skating on private
property throughout the city.
Parent Melissa Osteen told the city
commission' that she is looking into
establishing a non-profit organization
and raising funds to pay for insurance
so the kids could skateboard.
"We will try to raise money to sup-
port this," Osteen said. "Those who
come from out of the area are causing
all the problems."
It was suggested that it might be
in the best interest of Osteen's non-
profit to raise money and build their
own skate park and then they could
insure it and run it and the city would
have no say.
"I'm collecting signatures at this
time to show support for this skate
park," Osteen said.
'When the lengthy discussion of
the pros and cons of reopening the
skate park in Trenton finally came to
an end, Mayor Thigpen called for a
roll call vote. Commissioners Randy
Rutter and Marcia Hellams voted
in favwr of reopening the skate park
while ConiiAstoner Tim Kinsey and
Mayor Glen Thigpen voted to keep
it closed. The park will therefore re-
main closed because there was not a
majority vote to reopen it,


Roberts announces candidacy

for Gilchrist County Sheriff


It is an honor to announce my can-
didacy for sheriff of this beautiful
county that we are all fortunate to call
our home.
My past experience in law enforce-
ment is with the State of Florida for
fourteen years. It was also my privi-
lege to serve four years in the United
States Air Force. Love for this coun-
try, and the laws of our land .were
instilled in me as a young man. I
have gained a wealth of knowledge
in business management, owning and
operating several businesses in our
county since 1979.
The citizens of this county, overall
are not happy with the results of their
tax dollars being spent versus ser-
vices rendered. If elected, the taxpay-
ers' dollars will be used for what is
needed for the safety of our citizens
and the security of their property.
I want results, not just reports. Ex-
perience does matter. Getting the job


done matters more to Larry Roberts.
Listening to the people matters, and
responding to them matters more to
Larry Roberts.

John's Comments
By: John M. Ayers


Gilchrist County took a giant leap
Monday night in deciding to go for-
ward in submitting the CPA 08-01 in-
volving a Special Area Plan for high-
density development in Gilchrist
County.
1 want to thank Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison, Jr. for taking the
time to attend this meeting as he is
recovering from a very severe ill-
ness. Commissioner Harrison with
his years of expertise involving prop-
erty appraising and tax related issues
asked some very detailed and specific
questions that need to be answered
by the applicant before this SAP can
be approved.
Commissioner Harrison asked the
applicants if the Home Owners Asso-
ciation or Community Development
District, however it is identified, in-
volving Oak Tree Landing is non-
profit, would it pay ad valorem taxes
to Gilchrist County involving the wa-
ter and sewer facilities as well as the
golf course and the 4,875-foot paved


air strip. The golf course and the air-
strip and commercial retail business-
es set this development apart froin
most other proposals. The fact that
there should not be a lot of demand
on these capital improvements.
Gilchrist County is a beautiful
place to come and enjoy the natural
beauty it holds. Whether you like the
springs, the nature greenway trails or
just the open spaces along the rural
highways, it is a nice place to visit.
Many of the Gilchrist County resi-
dents that attended the meeting Mon-
day night spoke out against this type
of high-density development because
they don't want the county to change.
We all love Gilchrist County, some
of us realize that growth is inevitable
and if we know what is good for us,
then we can plan for just that.
The vision process for the people
of Gilchrist County has begun. If
you are willing to work for what is
best for Gilchrist County, then get in-
volved and prepare for the future.

relationship with Enron.
In August of 2005, 1 described
another egregious attempt to
manipulate research. Tad LaFountain
111, a research analyst at Wells Fargo,
wrote in a research note on July 26
of that year that Altera Corporation
ignored his calls and prohibited his
asking questions on conference calls,
due to a negative stance on the stock.
Altera did issue an apology as
a result of the ensuing negative
publicity. However, if Altera's retreat
was a victory for unbiased research,
the moment was fleeting. Just five
days after Altera's apology, Wells
Fargo Securities dropped its equity
research program, citing "financial
considerations and marketplace
changes."
Now once again some analysts find
themselves as popular as the average
Norwegian rat as they are thwarted in
their efforts to remain independent.
This time the credit-rating firms are
at the crux of the controversy. Given
the recent meltdown in the credit
markets, that has an odious ring to it.

Fitch Ratings acknowledge switching

rating analysts at the request of
banks or bond issuers. It seems that
an "analyst does not always get
the message," Bill May, Moody's
managing director was quoted by the
Wall Street Journal as saying.
Apparently some customers
wanted an analyst that raised fewer
questions about certain deals. At one
.point a Moody's official agreed with
an investment banker's opinion that
the analyst was "too fussy" a person.
Meanwhile, Moody's is trying to deal
with reports it tried'to cover up a bug
in its computer models that caused
it to "overrate" securities known as
constant-proportion debt obligations.
To protect yourself from Wall
Street's more egregious behavior,
understand what you are investing
in and why. Do not take the word of
others as gospel. Conduct your own
due diligence and do not invest in
esoteric instruments that fly in the
face of common sense.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


Tell me...is there anything better
than a sun ripened tomato fresh from
a home garden. This year our toma-
toes are thriving thanks to the drip
hose and a hefty shovel full of John's
compost.
The fact is I like tomatoes most
anyway that they are prepared or
fresh just sliced up on a plate sprin-
kled with a little seasoning salt. This
year we have several nice basil plants
in our garden thanks to my brother.
Fresh basil is good in any dish with
tomatoes. If I have basil growing I
will often chop it up and add about
5 or 6 leaves worth into a pot of spa-
ghetti sauce just before it's done. It's
also good sprinkled across the top of
a tossed salad.
This time of year it seems like if
you have a garden you will have to-
matoes, squash and beans in abun-
dance. The following couple of reci-
pes may give you some new ideas for
uses of these popular vegetables.

womatoew
3 fresh large tomatoes
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons parsley, chopped
1 tablespoon fresh basil leaves,
crushed
1 tablespoon sweet onion, minced
Slice tomatoes and place in single.
layers in the bottom of a shallow
dish. In small jar mix olive oil, vin-
egar, salt, pepper, and garlic. Cover


tightly with lid and shake until well
mixed. Pour mixture over tomato
slices. Sprinkle parsley, basil, and on-
ion over the tomatoes slices and oil
mixture. Cover and refrigerate one to
three hours before serving.



6 cups yellow crookneck squash,
sliced
1 large sweet onion, chopped
1 egg slightly beaten
5 tablespoons unsalted butter,
melted
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon sugar
1 cup medium cheddar cheese,
grated
1 red or green bell pepper chopped
1 1/2 cups Ritz cracker crumbs
Salt and freshly ground black
. pepper to taste
1/2 teaspoon thyme, crumbled
1/2 teaspoon oregano crumbled
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place
squash and onions in sauce pan with
1/2 cup water and cook until just ten-
der. Drain, reserve liquid and place in
large bowl. Add egg, 4 tablespoons
butter, mayonnaise, sugar, half of
cheese, bell pepper, half of cracker
crumbs, salt, pepper, thyme and oreg-
ano. If mixture seems too dry, add re-
served vegetable broth by the table-
spoon until moist. Mix well and place
in buttered 1 1/2 quart casserole dish.
Combine remaining cheese, cracker
crumbs and tablespoon of butter.
Sprinkle on top of casserole, bake 20
to 25 minutes and serve.

I am D. Anthony Drew, raised in
the Williston area of Levy County
and as long as I can remember, I've
been involved with agriculture; load-
ing watermelon in the days when lo-
cal high school boys brought in the
harvest, working at Tri-county Dryer
and Feed Mill in Williston, farming
cattle and peanuts or managing the
Farmers Mutual Exchange of Valdo-
sta.
A graduate of University of Flor-
ida, I earned my Masters Degree in
Agriculture and Extension Educa-
tion, and have served commercial
growers for more than two decades as
Levy County Extension Agent. For
years, commercial growers have uti-
lized "Best Management Practices"
(known as BMPs) to maximize their
harvests while being good stewards
of our soil and water.
I'm pleased to report that Best
Management Practices (BMPs) have
been developed for homeowners,
through the use of the 9 Principles of
the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods
program and its concepts of creating
and maintaining Florida-Friendly
landscapes. These principles educate
and enable homeowners to manage
their landscape and garden utilizing
BMPs.
I must be transparent and let you
know there's an ulterior motive for
promoting homeowner BMPs. I am
an avid fisherman. You may ask
"what does catching red-belly have
to do with homeowner BMPs?" An
excellent question, allow me to elab-
orate.
As you know, folks are drawn to
the Nature Coast area from outer-
most parts of the United States. They
may attempt to grow plants with little
consideration of our climate, tem-
perature, relative humidity and soils.
And it is not uncommon for native
Floridians to encounter this as well.
For example, a plant that thrives on
the coast may freeze in your yard just
a few miles inland. Or attempting to
grow sun- loving Centipede grass in
a shady area will certainly lead to an
increased need for pesticides, fertil-
izer (nitrates) and water.
BMP principle #1, "Right Plant,


Anthony Drew


Right Place" means plant selection is
determined by individual site charac-
teristics. In my opinion, the demands
of mowing, irrigating, fertilizing and
"babying" plants that were never de-
signed to flourish in a specific site,
do not compare to a quiet time with
a fly-rod, on the banks of the Suwan-
nee River.
I can appreciate the work it takes
to create a nice landscape. You may
be one to take great pleasure in your
yard. Perhaps you've invested time
and money in improving your ex-
isting yard or have questions about
problems you've encountered in
landscape and gardening. Here's
the good news! Not only are BMPs
available for the homeowner but also
recognition for implementing those
BMPs. Trained Nature Coast Mas-
ter Gardeners are in place to evaluate
and recognize landscapes and yards
according to the 9 Principles of the
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods.
For details email me at savemy-
garden@gmail.com, phone toll free
866-542-4496 or stop by the Levy
County Extension Office, 625 North
Hathaway Avenue, Bronson, to re-
ceive a Landscape Self-Evaluation
Checklist.
Tune in for the July issue of Nature
Coast Garden Notes. Happy Garden-
ing!

Trenton Hidh School says

uoodbve to beloved teachers


Mrs. Marianne Moore and Mrs. Janie Owens will take more than
70 years of teaching experience with them when they leave THS this
summer. They will be missed!


In the coming days, two greatly
respected teachers will grade their
last homework assignments and
lock up their classrooms for the last
time. Mrs. Marianne Moore and
Mrs. Janie Owens will both be retir-
ing from teaching in Gilchrist County
Schools.
Mrs. Owens, wife of Terry Owens,
egan her teaching career in 1972 at
Parrot Junior High school in Brooks-
ville-the only school she's ever
been to besides THS. She says that
after working with younger children
at church, she felt that God was lead-
ing her into this profession. She says
that teaching is much more stressful
now than it was when she started,
primarily because the state puts more
demands on both teachers and stu-
(lents alike, but she maintains that the
rewards of student success are still
very satisfying and she recommends
fiaching to anyone who has a love of
Working with children or youth. Mrs.
Owens is looking forward to spend-
ing more time with her family, work-
ing in her yard, and searching for an-


tiques. If the price of gas goes back
down, she'd also like to do a little
more traveling, and she is looking
forward to being available to volun-
teer for her church and community.
Mrs. Moore, wife of Marvin Moore,
taught in the Miami area for 10 years,
tutoring Cuban refugees in the mid
60s and 70s before she left the teach-
ing profession to go into business,
owning several different businesses
including an art and painting shop in
Gainesville. In 1984, she returned to
her passion, and has taught in Tren-
ton schools in 5th and 6th grades
since then. She has received many
honors during her years of teaching,
but she says the greatest is when she
sees a former student who remem-
bers her class and tells her how she's
inspired them to keep trying. Mrs.
Moore says she's going to miss the
great team of 5th grade teachers she's
been working with here at THS, but
she's looking forward to taking her
RV on the road and spending some
time with her family. Good luck, La-
dies!

Bell High School Class of 1957

Reunion

1957 will have its annual reunion on
June 7, 2008 at Akins BBQ in Bell.
We would like to invite "'ll our
friends, classmates, teachers, and
anyone that would like to help us cel-
ebrate to come on in.
We celebrated our 50th last year on
October, 27, 2007 and had a real good
time. Most of our graduates attended,
families of our graduates and friends
came to help make it a very enjoyable


time. Six of our graduates have died
and they were greatly missed.
We all need to come out and re-
member the past and catch up on
each others' lives because we never
know when someone else will not be
here anymore.
My sister Ada and her husband,
Joel were kind enough to bring cam-
era and laptop and made pictures of
the occasion and we all enjoyed hav-
ing them.

Charlie Caulk

separates

himself from

other candidates

In the upcoming election, the citizens
of Gilchrist County will be asked to
make a very important decision, that is,
who will be their next sheriff.
When I announced my candidacy, I made a promise to myself, my wife,
and to citizens who support me, that I would not fall into the "political
trench" the other candidates would dig. I based my campaign on "Change
you deserve, not 'what you want to hear.'" I will not shake a citizen's
hand, look them in the eyes and tell them what I think they want to hear,
while exploiting the facts to gain a vote.
Our next sheriff's election should not be based on how many family
members that a candidate has or who erected.the most political signs.
Honesty, integrity, experience, and the drive to get the job done is the only
basis for electing a strong sheriff. Therefore, I openly base my candidacy
for sheriff on "who I am" and not "who I would mislead you into believ-
ing I am."
I want the citizens of Gilchrist County to know the "real" Charlie Caulk.
I take pride in the fact that I am like no other sheriff candidate. I have
heard your concerns and stories about our local law enforcement and I
understand your frustrations. With your support, I am ready to get to the
bottom of the drug problem that is fueling other crimes in our county and
bring all those who conspire to deal in illegal drugs to justice.
Three of the current candidates have been serving in both deputy sheriff
and city police upper management law enforcement positions and have
failed to solve the many existing problems our county is facing. they
now ask for your support in electing them sheriff. I refuse to entertain
excuses of why the job at hand is not getting done. I feel that if you are
not part of the solution, then you are most assuredly part of the problem.
I invite everyone to speak with me concerning qualifications, experi-
ence, crime rates and trends, budgets and spending, management prob-
lems, past performances of law enforcement officers, illegal drugs/pre-
scription drug abuse and the Gilchrist County Jail. I'll tell you the facts
and back them up with written statistics.
I know that if the citizens of Gilchrist County look at all -l.:is surround-
ing the sheriff candidates, their past work performance' anid:qualifications;
deciding who to vote for will be easy.
Please feel free to contact me anytime to talk or to arrange a meeting at
your convenience. Cell (352) 535-5916, Home (386) 454-8422
VOTE CHARLIE CAULK FOR SHERIFF

Crawford and Harrison named FFA state star finalists
-.-:,,* .


(Continued from page 1)
sor Steve Broker, Racheal's SAE is
well diversified with the fact that she
shows beef cattle and works part time
at Hart Springs.
"Racheal is a highly motivated stu-
dent and a tremendous public speak-
er," Broker said. "She is one of those
kids you can give something that has
to be done to and not worry that it
will get done."
Racheal will continue to be a lead-
er in the Trenton FFA Chapter over
the next two years.
From work with global position-
ing systems and water sensors to
baling hay and running pivots, Brett
Crawford has one of the most exten-
sive SAE projects Broker has ever
worked on.
"Brett does not have all his eggs in
one basket," Broker said.
The 18-year-old son of Doug and
Michelle Crawford said he has al-
ways wanted to be a farmer, but has
recently decided farming is too much
work for not much money. Following
his graduation from Trenton Middle
High School on Saturday night, Brett
plans to attend Lake City Community
College and pursue a degree in agri-
business.
Brett's SAE includes both place-
ment and entrepreneur options. The
Gilchrist County native has been em-
ployed with Top Quality Hay for the
last five years and during that time he
has learned the hay business inside
and out from his employer Tommy
Jones. Brett has gone from just run-
ning the fluffer in front of the baler to
managing the harvesting crew.
"We grow hay on 700 acres, which
includes my family farm and rented


Showing cattle at both the Suwannee River and the Florida State Fair
helped to keep Brett Crawford busy and earn money that will be used
toward college.


acreage," Brett explained.
Over the last two years, Brett has
attended 10 producer workshops
that have been offered by IFAS and
the local extension office including,
forage management, peanut short-
course, corn and sorghum production
tour and several others. In each of
these courses Brett has earned CEU
points that will allow him to recertify

"I was lucky to be able to work
with representatives from water
management and the University of
Florida on a research project that was
designed to help determine nutrient
flow and water use of overhead irri-
gation; our farm was a testing point
and I was able to learn how to moni-
tor the site and use the mapping pro-
grams," Brett said. "My SAE also in-
cluded custom harvesting grass seed
with a Gleaner F2 combine, which
I worked to purchase and starting a
small herd of beef cattle with monies
that I earned while showing and sell-
ing steers."

a decision for the future.
The chairman called for a roll call
vote and the board approved the mo-
tion to transmit the SAP request to the
Department of Comnmunity Affairs for
consideration by a 3-1 vote. Commis-
sioner Sharon Langford voted against
the motion. At 10:10 p.m. the meet-
ing was adjourned.The Commission
held this public meeting beginning at
6 p.m to determine if the board was
in favor of submitting the CPA 08-01
to the Department of Community Af-
fairs in Tallahassee. The five-member
board listened to a presentation made
be the Stiles and Helmos partnership
team. The Gilchrist County Planner
then provided information involving
staff recommendation and why he
didn't feel Gilchrist County should
submit this proposal to the state agen-
cy for review. The public was given
an allotted portion of the meeting to
ask questions of the board involving
the proposed application. The docu-


ment that will be submitted to DCA
will include the generic text and the
text amendment involving Oak Tree
Landing.


FFA advisor at Trenton from the time
he was 2 years old may have influ-
enced Brett's decision to join 4-H at
the age of 8 and FFAin 2001 when he
reached sixth grade.
While in FFA Brett has been a
member of the state winning Ag.
Mechanics team in 2005. He has also
represented Florida at the National
Convention in the same contest earn-
ing a silver team medal. Brett has
participated in the proficiency award
program since entering high school,
winning the Fiber and Oil Crop Pro-
ficiency.
In addition to showing fat steers at
the Suwannee River Fair, Brett has
shown cows at the Florida State Fair
and the Alachua County Fair over the
years. When he is not in school, Brett
works for Tommy Jones doing "a
little of this and a little of that." One
day Brett may spend, time entering
information into the Jones' computer
and the next he might be covered in
dust and grime while cutting hay in
Jones' fields.
"I work with my dad's GPS track-
ing systems, change tires at the tire
store and work in peanuts with my
Papa," Brett said.
He is also the owner of a small herd
of cows, property in Fanning Springs
and this year he has rented 30 acres to
pick grass seed.
"I wasn't really surprised to hear
I was in the top four for State Star
Farmer," Brett said. "When I was in
10th grade I was in the top four for
State Star Greenhand so I just kinda
figured I would be in the top four
now."
Over the last two years, Brett said
he has continued to add to his SAE.
"I just keep building ... and build-
ing," Brett said.
The State Star Farmer and State
Star Greenhand awards will be pre-
sented on Thursday, June 12 during
the eighth general session of the Flor-
ida FFA Convention.


Friday, May 23 started out like a
normal day, but it could have ended
tragically if it weren't for the quick
thinking of our 7th grade teachers.
After lunch, when John Richard,
a 7th grader, was laughing with his
friends on the way back into Mrs.
Kreinbihl's language arts classroom
the doorknob struck him in the back,
causing him to gasp and somehow
manage to inhale a piece of candy--a
"Shockers" Sweet Tart-into his
windpipe.
Mrs. Kreinbihl noticed him chok-
ing and took him into the hall where
she got the attention of Mr. John Price,
7th grade Social Studies teacher.
Mr. Price leapt into action, spun

Bluegrass Pickin'
The Suwannee Valley Bluegrass
Pickin' will take place at Otter Springs
RV Resort, on Saturday, June 7.
The music will start at 6 p.m. and
be played until everyone goes home.
This event will be free to the public
but we would appreciate a donation
to help out the groups' travel expens-
es.
All you have to do is bring yourself
on out to Otter Springs RV Resort
and have a great time and enjoy some
good old time Bluegrass music or call
and reserve a full hookup campsite or
a cabin.
For more information you can call
Cloud Haley at (35Z) 284-0668 or
Mr. Stacy at (386) 935-3337 or Ot-
ter Springs RV Resort at (352) 463-
0800. Hope to see you there.


John around and started the Heimlich
maneuver on him.
"I was trying to be easy on him
because just a few hours earlier we
had discussed him maybe cracking a
couple of ribs a week or so ago, and
I was afraid I would break them if I
performed the Heimlich too hard,".
said Price.
After about four tries, the candy
was dislodged and John's breathing
was restored.
THS is proud to have such brave,
quick-thinking and well-trained staff
members, like Mr. Price, who can be
.counted on in even the most dire of
circumstances.
Thanks, Mr. Price!

It is not an overstatement to sug-
gest that in the next few years gov-
ernments are going to be expected to
do more with less, be more stream-
lined, we will have to serve the pub-
lic in a more efficient manner and be
more cost conscious.
As your sheriff, spending will be
based on needs, not wants. I will
use the taxpayers' dollars for what is
needed for the safety of our citizens
and the security of their property.
For any questions or concerns, I
may be reached at (352) 493-5852.
Your vote will be greatly appreci-
ated. You will not be disappointed.

Candidate for Sheriff
of Gilchrist County
