5 arrested, charged with selling cocaine near schools


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 10-month investigation into il-
legal drug sales within the City of
Trenton peaked last Tuesday when
five arrests were made by Trenton
Police Chief Billy Smith during Op-
eration Ghost Town.
Cordell Gillyard, 21, of Trenton,
Kalonnie Jackson, 21, of Trenton,
Jarvis Green, 20, of Chiefland, Keith
Carter, 36, of Chiefland and Yolanda
Sims, 29, of Chiefland were all ar-
rested between Tuesday, July 22 and
Thursday, July 24.
According to Smith, Operation
Ghost Town began in late 2007 af-
ter the Trenton Police Department
received a call from an angry citizen
who said the city park in the north-
west section of town was no longer
accessible to children wanting to play
because drug dealers had taken over
the park.
"I increased patrols in the area, but
all that did was move them out of the
park," Smith said.
Ultimately, Smith decided to call
his brother Lt. Mike Smith, a mem-
ber of the Sumter County Narcotics
Task Force, to ask for assistance.
Along with two investigators, Lt.
Mike, Smith traveled to Trenton and
loaned Chief Smith some necessary,
equipment for the investigation while
also acting as an undercover police
officer buying cocaine from the al-
leged drug dealers.
Smith said he called the Levy
County Drug Task Force to ask for
assistance, but it was about the same
time task force members started their
own investigation into drug activity
in Levy County so they didn't have a
lot of time to assist the City of Tren-
ton.
"The drug problem is every-
where," Smith said. "You just have to
put forth the effort and try to do what
you can do because with this kind of
activity comes violent crimes that af-
fect not just families, but the whole
community."
According to Smith, all five arrests
came after each one of the alleged
drug dealers, all of whom are unem-
ployed, were captured on audio and

video surveillance selling drugs with-
in 1,000 feet of a school or church.
The hottest area other than the city
park in the northwest section of town
was the comer of 2nd Avenue and 7th
Street, which is just across the fence
from Trenton Elementary School,
Smith explained.
"With it all being on audio and vid-
eo it really takes the guesswork out of
it," Smith said. "We've done our part,


now it is up to the judicial system to
do what is right. There is no sense in
a plea bargain here."
According to Smith, Cordell Gil-
lyard sold crack cocaine to an under-
cover police officer on May 10 and
July 12 at the intersection of 2nd Av-
enue and 7th Street. He was charged
with Possession of cocaine within
1000 feet of a public school with
intent to deliver and Sale of cocaine


within 1000 feet of a public school,
both felony charges. Gillyard is cur-
rently being held in the Gilchrist
County Jail on $120,000 bond.
Jarvis Green was arrested and
charged with Possession of cocaine
within 1000 feet of a public school
with intent to deliver and Delivery of
cocaine, both felony charges. Accord-
ing to Smith, Green delivered crack
cocaine to an undercover Trenton


police officer on July 12 within 1000
feet of Trenton Elementary School
after he sold the officer the cocaine at
the city park. Green is currently be-
ing held in the Gilchrist County Jail
on $70,000 bond.
Kalonnie Jackson was arrested
on Thursday after being transported
from the Dixie County Jail. Jackson
was charged with Possession of co-
caine within 1000 feet of a public


school and city park with intent to
deliver, Sale of cocaine within 1000
feet of a public school and city park,
Possession of cannabis within 1000
feet of a public school and city park
with intent to deliver and Sale of can-
nabis within 1000 feet of a public
school and city park, all felony charg-
es. Smith explained that Jackson did
possess and sell cocaine and cannabis
to an undercover police officer within
1000 feet of Trenton High School on
Sept. 21, 2007. He is being held in
the Gilchrist County Jail on $65,000
bond.
According to Smith, Keith Carter
sold crack cocaine for $20 to an un-
dercover Treriton police officer on
Sept. 29, 2007 at the city park. On
June 7 Carter sold cocaine to an un-
dercover police officer within 1000
feet of Trenton Elementary School.
He was charged with two counts of
Possession of cocaine within 1000
feet of a public school and city park
with intent to deliver and two counts
of Sale of cocaine within 1000 feet
of a public school and city, all felony
charges.' Carter is currently being
held in the Gilchrist County Jail oil
$70,000 bond.
Yolanda Sims was arrested after
delivering $20 worth of cocaine to
an undercover police officer on June
7. Sims was charged with Delivery
of cocaine within 1000 feet of pub-
lic school, a felony charge. She is
currently being held in the Gilchrist
County Jail on $20,000 bond.
According to Smith, each first
degree felony charge carries a mini-
mum three year prison sentence on
each count;
While the police chief said he will
fight for each of the five arrested to
face prison time, the investigation is
still ongoing since one alleged drug
dealer captured on video and audio
tape has yet to be identified. Smith
said the Trenton Police Department
is already working on a second round
of investigations into illegal drug ac-
tivity within the city limits.
"It's not a matter of if they will be
caught," Smith said. "It's a matter of
when we will catch them."


Trenton parks will benefit from

$271,222 in FRDAP grant funding


Widening, resurfacing begins on CR 232


from Wilcox and travel north and east
to US 129. The segment of CR 232
just south of Bell which travels east
through a portion of the Waccasassa
Flats to SR 47 covers an estimated
16.39 miles.
Gilchrist County Commissioner D.
Ray Harrison, Jr. reported the re-con-
struction began on this roadway last
week.
Mills explained to the commis-
sion that the four to five contractors
submitting bids for this project were
eager to get started. Gilchrist County
awarded the bid to Art Walker Con-
struction of Ocala for the low bid of
$4,280,539.
The widening and resurfacing has
begun at SR 47 as the contractor adds
a portion of lime rock to the exist-
ing road base to widen the roadway
surface. The contractor is expected to
work on the portion of CR 232 that
travels through the wetlands area in
hopes of finishing before high water
becomes an issue.
Ron McQueen, Gilchrist County
Administrator, reported to the Com-
mission that the Suwannee River
Water Management District has ap-
proved the permitting of the widening


of the highway through the wetlands
area. The administrator also pointed
out that Florida Gas Transmission
has approved the construction over
the natural 'gas extension line that
runs along the north portion of the
right of way east to Florida Rock in
Alachua County.
Mills told the commission that
initially Florida Gas Transmission
reported that the extension line was
only 3 feet deep and 10 feet south
from the north edge of the right of
way. The engineer pointed out after
further communications with the gas
transmission company they admit-
ted the gas extension line is actually
closer to 4 feet deep and 20 feet north
from the center line of the pavement.
He told the commission that there is
a portion of the contract with the gas
transmission company that can allow
Gilchrist County to revoke the permit
and force the company to close the
gas line.
"I think I have laid this to rest, in-
volving further problems with Flor-
ida Gas Transmission and this 150
PSI natural gas extension line," Mills
added.

Trenton city officials were present-
ed with $135,611 for the Southside
City Park and $135,611 to be used
at the NE Fifth Avenue Park during
a Florida Recreational Development
Assistance Program (FRDAP) check
presentation last week.
According to Trenton officials, the
funds will be used to purchase park
equipment and pay for new paving
and other park improvements.
Phase 2 construction will begin at
Southside City Park, which will in-


clude a refurbished racquetball court,
tennis court, basketball court and
baseball field. Any additional funds
will be spent on lighting.
At the Northwest Fifth Avenue
Park new playground equipment has
been ordered, a shelter over the pic-
nic tables will be built, new grills and
additional tables will be installed,
city officials said.
"We enjoy coming to local munici-
palities to present funding for parks
and other equipment," Rep. Debbie
Boyd said. "These funds are awarded


by the Department of Community
Affairs."
In 2006 the City of Trenton re-
ceived $200,000 in FRDAP funding.
This year the state's budget includ-
ed $24,474,875 for FRDAP.
All 198 projects applied for from
53 Florida counties this year were
funded, but at a lower amount.
According to Diana Robinson,
legislative assistant to Rep. Debbie
Boyd, four of six counties in District
11 received funding for a total of nine
projects.

AMEET*THE*CANDIDATES X


This week: Candidates for Tax Collector / Next week: Candidates for County Commission, Dist. 3


Marilyn C. Bruce


Name: Marilyn C. Bruce
Seeking-office as: Democrat
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? I'm currently serving as the
tax collector and the only candidate
seeking the office that has working
experience and knowledge of the du-
ties of the office.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: Currently serving as the tax
collector since 2005.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? Actually worked in
the office for 28 years, before being
elected as your current tax collec-
tor. I'm the only candidate seeking
this office with the experience, skills,
ability and knowledge for the posi-
tioni of tax collector.
In your opinion, what key issue is
Gilchrist County currently facing?
"Growth" and how to embrace it
without losing the integrity of why
we live or chose to move here in the
first place.
What solution would you offer
to remedy this issue? I wish I had
a magic answer. I feel that by having
the right county commissioners as


our leaders and they in turn listening
to the community input and by put-
ting in place a clear goal of where our
county should be in the next 10 or 20
years.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as tax collector? To
continue to serve the citizens with
prompt, efficient service, while ac-
curately collecting and distributing
all revenues according to the Florida
Statutes and to continually strive to-
wards organizational excellence.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should the county do to deal
with growth? This question would
.be better handled by the "keepers" of
our community, which are our county
commissioners.
If elected, how would you con-
tinue or improve the services of-
fered to the residents of Gilchrist
County? As a small office doing big
business, we're the small fish in a
large pond. Having only five trained
personnel for the front counter and
no space available and budget con-
straints put a dapper on our wish list
for improved services.
Should expanding services in-
clude a driver's license service in
the tax collector's office? YES!!
Currently, the tax collector's of-
fice is open Monday through Fri-
day from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Would you be in favor of expand-
ing office hours? Yes. We have given
this considerable thought, remember
our office does state work at a local
level. Office hours must coincide
with the property appraiser's office,
Department of Revenue, Game &
Fish, Sales Tax Division, etc. Safety
must factor in since we deal mone-
tarily. We are open for suggestions on
how to expand and meet our custom-
er's demands.

Bobby Crosby
Name: Bobby Crosby
Seeking office as: Democrat
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? My initial interest in the of-
fice of tax collector was prompted
by discussions Swith several county
residents who voiced concerns about
the accessibility of the tax collector's
office.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: Includes retail management
position for 11 years; Owner/CEO
of lumber business for 14 years; ser-
vice on the Worthington Springs City
Council.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? My past work experi-
ence allows me to understand the
details involved in working from
and managing a budget; build and
maintain strong employer/employee
relationships; and listen and react to
voiced concerns of the public.
In your opinion, what key issue
is Gilchrist County currently fac-
ing? Environmental challenges such
as illegal dumping of trash and litter
along county roads is becoming a key
issue for this county.
What solution would you offer to


remedy this issue? Environmental
issues do present great challenges.
A solution that seems practical is
for every citizen to take pride in this
great county and each do his/her part
in demonstrating proper habits of
waste disposal.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as tax collector? My
first priority as tax collector will be to
stay. within the current budget while
extending office hours in order to be
more accessible to the public.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should the county do to deal
with growth? Growth is inevitable.
However, the growth of Gilchrist
County should not hinder or diminish
the morals, values, culture or heri-
tage that Gilchrist County is founded
upon. Growth plans need to be struc-
tured and based on the premise of our
character, which is not for sale.
If elected, how would you con-
tinue or improve the services of-
fered to the residents of Gilchrist
County? In my quest to work for and
with the citizens of Gilchrist County I
would research the possibility of cre-
ating a satellite office. I would also
ask the residents of this county for
their views and concerns on how the
tax collector's office would be able to
better serve them.
Should expanding services in-
clude a driver's license service in
the tax collector's office? Yes, I do
feel the office should be an agent for
driver's license services.
Currently, the tax collector's of-
fice is open Monday through Fri-
day from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Would you be in favor of ex-
panding office hours? Service to the
residents of this county is of utmost
importance, expanding office hours
in order to be more accessible is my
first priority.

Now nd 7he&

By Carrie A. Mizell


Growing up 1 can remember hear-
ing my parents say that if we got
paddled at school then we could get
ready to get another spanking when
we got home.
Today that is virtually unheard of
I'm sure, but the memory did come to
mind earlier this week when I read an
e-mail my grandmother-in-law Jean
Mizell sent me called "Things You
Don't Hear Anymore..."
The once popular sayings included
the following:
"Be sure to refill the ice trays,
we're going to have company after
while."
"Watch for the postman, I want
to get this letter to Aunt Mary in the
mail today."
"Quit slamming the screen' door
when you are on your way out!"
"Be sure and pull the windows
down when you leave, it looks like a
shower is coming up."
"Don't forget to wind the clock be-
fore you go to bed."
"Wash your feet before you go to
bed, they are nasty from playing out-
side all day barefooted."
"You have torm the knees out of
that pair of pants so many times there
is nothing left to put a patch on."
"Don't go outside with your good
school clothes on!"
"Go comb your hair; it looks like
the rats have nested in it all night."
"Put a dish towel over the cake so
the flies won't get on it."
"Quit jumping on the floor! I have
a cake in the oven and you are going


to make it fall if you don't quit!"
"Let me know when the Fuller
Brush man comes by, I need to get a
few things from him."
"You boys stay close by, the car
may not start and I will need you to
help push it off."
"There's a dollar in my purse, get
five gallons of gas when you go to
town."
"Open the back door and see if we
can get a breeze through here, it is
getting hot."
"You can walk to the store; it won't
hurt you to get some exercise."
"Don't sit too close to the TV. It is
hard on your eyes."
"If you pull that stunt again, I am
going to wear you out!"
"Don't lose that button; I'll sew it
back on after awhile."
"Don't turn the radio on now, I
want the battery to be up when the
Grand Ole Opry comes on."
"Eat those vegetables, they'll make
you big and strong like your daddy."
"That dog is NOT coming in this
house! I don't care how cold it is out
there, dogs just don't come in the
house."
"Hush your mouth! I don't want to
hear words like that! I'll wash your
mouth out with soap!"
"Quit crossing your eyes! They
will get stuck that way!"
It is: "Yes Ma'am!" and "No
Ma'am! to me, young man, and don't
you forget it!"
And the all time biggie..."Wait till
your father gets home!!!!"


Letters to the Editor )


Can't the citizens
of Gilchrist County
chip in?
Our county road department spends
a good portion of its budget on right-
of-way grass cutting and trash pick-
up. Why?
Why can't the citizens of Gilchrist
County have enough civic pride to
chip in?
If each homeland owner would
take care of their frontage, cutting
the grass and picking up trash, a large
amount of money could be saved.
This money could then be used for
road improvement.
Our church youth and youth orga-
nizations, plus students looking for
community service hours could assist


the handicapped and senior citizens
in this endeavor.
This might even cut down on the
amount of trash because the people
who are tossing it might get involved
and not toss it.

don't have the ability to carry around
thousands of dollars in cash. We don't
have a "treasure" like a "Masonic
Scottish Rite watch." Nor do we have
the means to be persuasive enough to
have the sheriff's office even offer
to my family a surveillance camera
set. We would never have the abil-
ity to say "thank you" enough to the
sheriff's department for such special
treatment.
We did have the ability to love

But, you see 'Mr. Kelly,' our dogs
were poisoned by a mean spirited
rancher.
Now, we like you, lay awake at

been taken away needlessly.
"Bold and repeated thievery," as
we see it, is very similar to 'bold and
repeated poisonings.' Both felony
acts, obviously perpetrated bysome-
one with a lack of respect for others,
full of arrogance, a feeling of being
above the law, and sheer boredom.
'Mr. Kelly,' go to Gilchrist County
Animal Shelter and adopt a couple of
dogs. They will alert you when trou-
ble is near. The love you give them
will be returned ten-fold. Most of all,


Ichabod
(Kent Heaton)


The beginning of Samuel's work as a prophet had a
terrible beginning. It was during this early time ,of
Samuel's ministry Israel went out to battle against the
Philistines (1 Samuel 4). In the first battle Israel lost "four
thousand men of the army in the field" (v2). The elders
of Israel were dismayed over the loss and decided to bring
the "ark of the covenant of the Lord from Shiloh to save
us from the hand of our enemies" (v3). The ark was
taken into the next battle and Israel lost thirty thousand
foot soldiers; the ark of God was captured; and the two
sons of Eli (the prophet of God before Samuel) were
killed.
When the news of Israel's defeat came to the ears of Eli
and the messenger told of the capture of the ark of God,
"Eli fell off the seat backward by the side of the gate;
and his neck was broken and he died, for the man was
old and heavy. And he had judged Israel for forty years.
Now his daughter-in-law, Phinehas's wife, was pregnant
and about to give birth; and when she heard the news
that the ark of God was taken and that her father-in-law
and her husband had died, she kneeled down and gave
birth, for her pains came upon her. And about the time
of her death the women who stood by her said to her, 'Do
not be afraid, for you have given birth to a son.' But she
did not answer or pay attention. And she called the boy
Ichabod, saying, 'The glory has departed from Israel,
because the ark of God was taken and because of her
father-in-law and her husband.'She said, 'The glory has
departed from Israel, for the ark of God was taken'" (1
Samuel 4:18-22).
The glory of the Lord had departed from Israel because
of their disobedience. Ichabod represented the failure of


the people to see the true power of God. The children of
Israel thought that by taking the ark into battle that would
guarantee victory. They trusted in a misplaced allegiance
to a thing and not to the Lord. The ark was very special
and was instructed by the Lord to be built (Exodus 25).
The value of the ark was not in the acacia wood overlaid
with gold but the presence of the Lord. Having the ark of
Testimony in battle did not defeat the enemy but the power
of the Lord gained the victory.
Paul warned the Athenians that God is "Lord of heaven
and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands;
nor is He served by human hands, as though He needed
anything" (Acts 17:24-25). Men desire to build
monuments to serve and worship believing their creations
bring glory to God. The Lord is not interested in the ornate
buildings that proudly hail the glory of men. The Lord
looks at the heart. When David was anointed king, the
Lord said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at
the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for
God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward
appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart" (1 Samuel
16:7).
Worship must be according to the will of the Lord. Jesus
told the woman at the well that "God is spirit, and those
who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth" (John
4:24). When we worship according to Ichabod we will be
defeated in our worship. True worship is from the heart.
External creations of man make worship vain (Matthew
15:8,9). True victory comes from lives that are turned to
the Lord in knowing the real power of obedience to the

ByCOOKING ANdy JoC AyerRYIN ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


I arrived home last Friday eve-
ning from a trip which lasted some
ten days. My high school friend;
Beth Davis and I take a girl's trip
each summer leaving our husbands
at home. Now, this might seem kind
of selfish on our part to not take the
guys but truthfully you couldn't hog
tie those men and put them in the car
with us. You see, they know we plan
to stop at almost every quilt shop that
we pass on one of our quilting vaca-
tions.
The last four years we have trav-
eled to a quilting workshop in Indi-
ana and visited the National Quilt
Museum in Kentucky, attended the
Sisters Quilt Show in Oregon, and
last year we spent a week at the Cow-
girls Quilt Retreat on the Nine Quar-
ter Circle Ranch in Montana.
The first night out brought us to a
very interesting spot. We were cruis-
ing down interstate 81 just past Roa-
noke, Virginia when Beth spotted
a sign which advertised the Natural
Bridge. Since the sign claimed that
the bridge was only 3 miles off the
road we decided to check it out. We
were very pleasantly surprised to find
a lovely old Natural Bridge Hotel
which was built after the first Victo-
rian hotel burned in the 1960s. The
large hotel consists of colonial style
decor and a wonderful view of the
mountains. The inside features many
wonderful antiques. The Natural
Bridge is a stone arch that stands over
200 feet above the Cedar River which
carved it from a mountain ridge. The
land which was originally purchased
from King George III by Thomas Jef-
ferson is very interesting. Jeffersop
paid what amounted to just over $2
for the 157 acres which includes the
Natural Bridge. It is believed that a
young George Washington surveyed
the area. Washington left his initials
G.W. carved in the inside of the natu-
ral bridge.,
We ate supper at the hotel's Colo-
nial Dining Room and had a wonder-
ful dish that I have never eaten be-
fore but have heard of many times.
The Spoon Bread recipe came from
a Williamsburg recipe. All the food
we ate there was really goodand it is
just one long day's drive away. The
next morning we walked along Cedar
Creek and saw the Natural Bridge. I
have to say it's pretty amazing.
The next day we traveled on to
Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The
next morning we went into the city
of Lancaster and visited the Central
Market. This was very interesting be-
cause they had a' lot of local grown
produce, local made cheese and Ger-
man meat markets which featured
some really good looking cuts of meat
and scrapple. They also had many
booths with handmade Amish items
such as jellies, quilts and baskets. We
also toured the Lancaster Quilt and
Textile Museum. This world class
exhibit of Lancaster County Amish-
made quilts was well worth the small
admission price. The tiny stitches
were a wonder and much admired by
both Beth and I.
Later in the morning we went to In-
tercourse, Pennsylvania and viewed
the wonderful quilts on display at
the People's Place Quilt Museum. At
this time there is a special quilt ex-
hibit featuring Fons and Porter Quilts,
as well as a display of contemporary
quilts.
We ate a late lunch nearby at
Stoltzfus Farm Restaurant. The food
was so good, it was Amish and fea-
tured their homemade noodles as


well as wonderful fried chicken that
actually tasted like real chicken. Dur-
ing this family style meal we also
tried pepper cabbage, chow chow,
apple butter, apple sauce served with
white and whole wheat bread which
was made at the restaurant. The main
meal was fried chicken, sausage, ham
loaf, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes
mixed with dressing (that was inter-
esting), noodles, corn, beans and the
meal was completed with shoofly pie
and homemade ice cream. Talk about
full.
We made our way north arriving
at the Yellow .House Hotel in Yellow
House, Pennsylvania. We ate supper
there at the inn which dates back to
1801 and it was a great experience.
The food was really good and the
old inn was right up my alley. At one
time it served as a stage coach stop,
general store and post office.
The next morning we explored the
winding backroads of the beautiful
Oley Valley. This area is filled with
large two and three story stone farm
houses which date to the late 1700s
and very early 1800s. We drove down
narrow hilly country roads finding
two covered bridges. One had two hex
signs on it. These bridges prompted a
search for hex signs painted on huge
two story barns all through this part
of our travels. We found many and
I became intrigued by this form of
Pennsylvania Dutch folk art. We did
finally arrive at our destination which
was Ladyfinger Quilt Studio which
was located in this wonderful build-
ing that is the former Griesemersville
Hotel. It was built in 1860;this stage-
coach stop served travelers on their
way from Reading to Philadelphia
with over 40 rooms, a saloon, post.
office, and general store. Ladyfingers
is owned by Gail Kessler, who is also
the Marketing Director for Andover
Fabrics in New York City. We were
pretty excited to have the opportunity
to meet Gail and talk to her a little
about the collections of fabric she has
designed. Many local quilters have
used some of her Dimples line of fab-
ric which is carried at our local quilt
shop, Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe
in-Trenton. In factiwe learned about
the scenic Oley Valley and the Lady-
finger Quilting Studio from Stepha-
nie Metts and Judy Parks down at our
local quilt shop.
I plan to ramble on about our trip
again next week.

Back to the food which' as you
know is a very important part of any
trip. The nice ladies at Stoltzfus Farm
Restaurant gave us a recipe for Pep-
per Cabbage which we both really
like. I plan to make this recipe and
serve it with fried mullet 'sometime.
But truly it would be good served at
most any meal.




1 large head cabbage, grated
1 green pepper, finely chopped
1 carrot, shredded
Dressing:
2 cups sugar
1 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup water.
2 tablespoon salt
Mix dressing and let sit until all
the sugar is dissolved. Mix dressing
with cabbage mixture and refrigerate
for several hours or overnight. This
recipe will keep in the refrigerator for
a week.

Trenton City Commission

votes not to raise ad valorem


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
voted Monday night to not increase
the ad valorem millage rate above the
current 3 mills. The regular meeting
included a line by line proposed bud-
get review.
After much discussion about vari-
ous ways to cut the budget and may-
be improve the streets and water lines
in the city which are very old, Com-
missioner Randy Rutter proposed
that the ad valorem millage rate not
exceed 3 mills. Commissioner Rut-
ter's motion was seconded by Com-
missioner Marcia Hellams. Commis-
sioner Arlene Wilks spoke up and
said that she would like to third the
motion.
The commissioners voted unani-
mously to not raise this tax rate high-
er than it is now.
A discussion was held and a couple
of the more costly departments such
as animal control and the police de-
partment were singled out as places
that cuts could be made.
Commissioner Rutter said maybe
the city does not need to provide
as many services and use the funds
they have to overhaul the aging city
infrastructure. Rutter went on to say
that he would like to hear from the
citizens to see how they want their
money spent.
Mayor Glen Thigpen was con-
cerned that the $838,312 proposed
budget does not leave money to put
into a reserve.
The mayor said he had hoped this
year since most of the outstanding
bills have been paid off there -would
be money left over to start building
a reserve. The auditor recommends
having three months of operating ex-
penses in reserve.
Now that the commissioners have


voted to not increase the ad valorem
above 3 mills they can lower it before
they finalize the budget but they can
go no higher.

Elect Daniel SLAUGHTER for Gilchrist County Sheriff
Recently, as I have visited with citizens throughout Gilchrist County, I am often asked about my career in Law
Enforcement and about my desire to be your next Sheriff. To this question, I have found my answer an easy
one. Any person who truly cares about a Law Enforcement career does it to serve a cause greater than one's
self, to serve and protect is the motto we live by. I explain that often, until you have become the victim of a
Crime, most individuals do not know what services we provide or the level of expertise we possess. I remind
them that Law Enforcement is not an easy job and this service does come at a cost, through sacrifices that both
S' we and our families face. However, I express that the true reward of a public servant is knowing that we have
helped our fellow citizen in difficult situations, in a time of special need, and have made a positive contribution
to our county.


Questions such as this reinforce my desire of public service, and add continued excitement about becom-
ing your next Sheriff. I believe that being a leader is not a role but an action. I plan to lead the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office by my example and will empower all the men and women of the Sheriff's Office to perform
their duties to the highest standards of excellence. I will settle for nothing less than to be professional, efficient,
effective and community involved. My goal is to establish a Sheriff's Office that all Gilchrist County Citizens
can be proud of. My mission statement remains simple: "Safety and Security for All Citizens."


I thank you for being part of what makes Gilchrist County a great place to work, live and visit. I look
forward to meeting with each and every one of you to continue to answer further questions, and I again ask for
your vote on August 26, 2008.


Sincerely,


DaWtiet/ S lauter-

Back-to-school supplies being

collected for area children


Imagine trying to do a school as-
signment without having a pencil to
write with.
Each school year, area teachers
spend hundreds of dollars of their
own money to ensure their students
have the tools they need to get a
good education.
This week the
Gilchrist County
Journal is tak-
ing a proactive
stand to help
offset costs to
local teachers
and students by
providing school
supplies for the
2008-09 school
year.
According to Associate Editor
Carrie A. Mizell, the newspaper
will team up with the Gilchrist
County School District to gather
school supplies for students who
can't afford them.
Beginning Friday, July 25, a col-


election box will be set up inside the
Gilchrist County Journal office,
located at 207 North Main Street,
Trenton. School supplies will be
collected for students entering kin-
dergarten through high school this
fall at Trenton and Bell schools.
... Local busi-
nesses and com-
munity mem-
bers are asked
/I to please donate
school supplies.
Pencils, pens,
notebooks, glue,
crayons and
backpacks are
just some of the
items being ac-
cepted.
The collection will end on
Wednesday, Aug. 13. All school
supplies collected will be evenly
distributed between Trenton El-
ementary School, Bell Elemen-
tary School, Trenton Middle-High
School and Bell High School.


Morriston woman attacked by fox,
then accidentally shot by husband


By Carrie A, Mizell
The Levy County Health Depart-
ment sent off a red fox to be tested
for rabies this week after it attacked a
Morriston woman last Friday morn-
ing outside her home.
According to Lt. Evan Sullivan,
public information officer for the
Levy County Sheriff's Office, depu-
ties responded to a call involving an
accidental shooting on SE 186th Ave-
nue in Morriston on Friday morning.
Deputies were told that homeown-
ers Mr. and Mrs. Vrana were inside
their residence when they saw an
unknown animal in their yard. When
the couple walked outside to investi-
gate, a red female fox attacked Mrs.
Vrana's left leg.
The investigation revealed that Mr.
and Mrs. Vrana were unable to escape
the attack and Mrs. Vrana asked her
husband to retrieve a weapon from


inside the home. Mr. Vrana brought
out his 22 caliber rifle and shot seven
times attempting to kill the fox. Dur-
ing the incident, Mr. Vrana acciden-
tally shot his wife in the lower right
leg and also killed the fox.
When Levy County EMS arrived
on scene, paramedics had to pry the
fox from the victim's left leg, Sulli-'
van explained.
Mrs. Vrana was transported to
Shands Hospital where she was listed
in stable condition.
The red fox was transported by the
Levy County Health Department to
the Bureau of Labs in Tampa where
it tested negative for rabies.
Officials from the Levy County
Sheriff's Office ask that anyone that
observes a wild animal exhibiting
strange behavior call law enforce-
ment before making contact with the
animal.

From the

shelves of

the Bell

Library
": Man) adult novels have been
Wrinen and "'blisT1 by Daniefl
Steel. Recently I read one of the
best of these, "Leap of Faith." In
my opinion it was intriguing, what
is .usually called 'a page turner.'
If you are a dog lover, you
will appreciate the junior book,
"Marley" written by John Grogan.
He was a rowdy little furball who
failed obedience school and later
grew into a large Labrador. He
ate everything that came into his
reach.
For the beginning reader, we will
recommend "The Slow Turtle" who
lost all the races but helped to find
the award to be presented to the
winner.
We will have "Story time" for
the younger children on July 29,
August 5th and 12th at 9:30 a.m.
Please let us know if your child
will be attending.
Hope to see you at Bell Library
soon

program.


The youth of


the


community are our future.

Heart Matters ByAngie Land


What do you fear most?
A recent online poll offered the
following choices: a debilitating dis-
ease or injury, not being successful,
not finding the right person to share
life with, public speaking, heights,
death, the unknown, and the dark. Is
yours on the list or could you add fur-
ther frights?
Webster's Dictionary defines fear
as "an unpleasant and often strong
emotion caused by the anticipation of
danger." It is interesting and worth-
while to note that fear is caused by
the anticipation of danger, not the
danger itself. An old German prov-
erb says it this way: "Fear makes the
wolf bigger than he is." Personally, I
know this to be true.. .the ones in my
imagination can grow to monstrous
proportions!
Fear also causes major damage, in
our relationships. For example, a
fear of rejection will cause us to put
up a wall to keep others from getting


too close. We perceive that if they
really knew us, they wouldn't want
to stick around, so we let them "in"
only to a point. This actually results
in the other person feeling discon-
nected from us, and the rejection we
fear happens, but not for the reason
we assume. This is true in more than
just romantic relationships.. .it hap-
pens every day between parents and
children, siblings, extended family
ties and friendships.
One of the most often repeated
phrases in the Bible is "Fear not." It
appears hundreds of times in the Old
and New Testaments. However, the
Bible is not saying there is nothing
to be afraid of...life and relation-
ships can be risky, but in reality, our
unhealthy fear can be counterproduc-
tive in facing the danger. Healthy
fear causes us to reverence God and
to escape "real" danger. Unhealthy
fear over "perceived" danger para-
lyzes us to the point that it prevents


us from experiencing life as God
planned. Philippians 4:6-7 has this
to say: "Be anxious (fearful) for
nothing, but in everything by prayer
and supplication with thanksgiving
let your requests be made known to
God. And the peace of God, which
surpasses all comprehension, shall
guard your hearts and your minds in
Christ Jesus."
According to these verses, we are
to worry about nothing and pray
about everything. Easier said than
done, but what this really means is
that fear and faith cannot exist in the
same spot simultaneously.. .when we
feel afraid, that is our warning light
to respond in faith to God. It is our
choice... we can give our fears to Him,
or our fears will control us. Talk to
God about what you are afraid of and
allow Him to guard your heart and
mind with peace. Only He can bring
that wolf back down to size.. .and He
will because your heart matters.

The Children and Grandchildren of Daniel and Cindy Slaughter invite you to a

our Troops table that evening with pictures for the

District 6940 Assistant Governor Ed Philman, Paul Harris Fellow Murph Everett, Paul Harris Fellow'
Cindy Slaughter, Trenton Rotary Club President Charlie Smith, District 6940 Governor Ronald Richards,
Paul Harris Fellow Reese Rowland and Paul Harris Fellow Todd Bryant.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Four Gilchrist County business
professionals were recognized on
Monday by the Trenton Rotary Club
as Paul Harris Fellows.
Reese Rowland, Cindy Slaughter,
Todd Bryant and Murph Everett were
each presented with a commemora-
tive certificate, a Paul Harris Fellow
pin and a medallion by visiting Dis-
trict 6940 Governor Ronald Rich-
ards.
To be considered a Paul Harris Fel-
low, a Rotarian must contribute or
have contributed in their name a gift
of $1,000 or more to Rotary Interna-
tional's Annual Programs Fund.


According to Richards, the rec-
ognition identifies each Paul Harris
Fellow as an advocate for the Foun-
dation's goals of world peace and in-
ternational understanding.
A special guest at the Trenton
Rotary Club meeting on Monday,
Richards and his wife, Innes, spoke
of how fulfilling it is to be a member
of Rotary International and share the
membership with one's spouse.
The district governor encouraged
Trenton Rotary Club members to
work to grow quality membership
within the club over the next year
while continuing with service proj-
ects.


"You must put your whole self into
service above self," Richards said.
He encouraged Rotarians to take up
Rotary International President D.K.
Lee's theme for 2008-2009, which is
"Make Dreams Real." According to
Richards, Rotarians will work to con-
tinue to reduce child mortality in the
world by fighting hunger and diseases
like malaria, measles and polio.
Since the inception of the Trenton
Rotary Club, members have given
over $43,000 to the Rotary Founda-
tion, Richards said.
In all, 27 Trenton Rotary Club
members have been recognized as
Paul Harris Fellows..

Memorial Courtyard has been set for

ing sold now will be placed around

acters per line. To purchase a paver

(Continued from page 1)


per paver.
This week the courtyard commit-
tee met and decided that each of the
monuments will be lighted on all four
sides as well as the flag pole.
Engraved pavers are also being
sold for placement along the side-
walks to honor individuals and fam-
ily members who have contributed to
the community. For more informa-
tion, call Julee Brideson at 43-3198.

Make plans now for Trenton High reunion


By Carrie A. Mizell
Has it been 50 years since you saw
your classmates from grade school?*
It's time to relive your high school
days at the annual Trenton High
School Reunion.
Graduates representing the THS
classes of 1958, 1959 and 1968 will
gather at the Trenton Elementary
School Cafetorium on Saturday, Oct.
18 to renew old acquaintances dur-
ing a time of fellowship beginning at
Noon.
A catered lunch prepared by
Prieston Jones will be served at 1
p.m. and will consist of Gilchrist sau-
sage, roast beef, pork and numerous
side dishes and desserts. Following
the $15 lunch, the different classes
will be recognized.
A power point presentation featur-
ing old snapshots of class members
will also be shown during the re-
union. No yearbooks were printed
in the 1950s so the class has to rely
on old photographs taken durifig the
school year to make-up the power
point presentation.
According to Diana Webb Harri-
son, 2008 will mark the 12th consec-


utive year the Trenton High. School
Reunion has been held. Organizers
have decided that this year's reunion
will be the last reunion held until
2010.
Each year around 150 Trenton High
School alumni return to their home
to celebrate Trenton High School
and the impact the education they
received made on their lives. Sadly
more graduates who moved away
make a point to attend the annual re-
union than graduates who still live in


the area. However, Harrison hopes
knowing this year's reunion will be
the last for several years will draw a
larger crowd than usual.
"All Trenton High School alumni
are invited to join us," Harrison said.
For more information on the annu-
al Trenton High School reunion, call
Diana Webb Harrison at 463-2147.
. To submit class photographs for the
power point presentation, mail to:
Prieston Jones, Post Office Box 183,
Trenton, FL 32693.


"In the future when Gilchrist
County has to approve the installa-
tion of a natural gas line, the county
needs to have an engineer on site dur-
ing the construction and have the gas
company pay for this service," said
Commissioner Randy Durden.
The Gilchrist, County Commis-
sion also approved the resurfacing of
Shady Grove Road in Southeast Gil-
christ County off of SR 26.
Lee Mills gave the commission the
submitted proposals from the four
contractors bidding on this project.
The bids are as follows: Apex South-
east $494,896.06, V. E. Whitehurst
- $392,832, Anderson-Columbia Co.
- $382,832 and John C. Hipp Con-


struction at $368,065.60.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to approve the
bid by John C. Hipp Construction at
$368,065.60 for the 2.34-mile proj-
ect. Commissioner Sharon Langford
seconded the motion.
A board member asked what would
the paving company do about the low
hanging limbs that are a canopy on
"some parts of this road. There will
be some limbs and trees damaged
as some of the trucks are dumping
asphalt into the paving equipment,
Mills responded. The construction
company has agreed to clean up the
limbs and trees and try to keep the
damage to a minimum, Mills added.
