SRWMD could be new owner of Otter Springs Resort


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
was informed of a proposed sale of
the 620-acre Otter Springs Park in
southwest Gilchrist County to the
Suwannee River Water Management
District on Monday.
"The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District has a contract to
purchase Otter Springs RV Resort
and wants to know if Gilchrist Coun-


ty is interested in managing the park,"
Ron McQueen, county administrator,
explained to the board.
David Still, executive director of
the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District, reported the Otter
Springs contract proposal will go to
the water management district gov-
erning board in their Tuesday, Aug.
12 meeting. The proposed land ac-
quisition of approximately 636 acres


is subject to public comment in this
meeting. The executive director and
staff recommend the board purchase
this property and for the board to exe-
cute Resolution 2008-17 authorizing
the executive director to exercise the
option to purchase the Otter Springs
property. The funds for this purchase
would be through the Department of
Environmental Protection from the
Florida Forever Trust Fund. The con-


tracted purchase price of $6,800,000
would give the Water Management
District the protection of the springs
area by a 401-acre tract of hardwood
timber that is between the Suwannee
River and the public access to the
property along SW 70th Avenue.
Faith Place, Inc., Big Otter L.P.,
Charity Place, Inc., and Hope Place,
Inc currently own this land.
The purchase of the property would


also provide the Water Management
District with an existing water bot-
tling permit, #2-00-00114 that would
again become the sole property of the
district. The Otter Spring property
also contains 11.structural improve-
ments including a 6,000 square foot
lodge plus bathhouses, offices and a
country store. The property has 100
pull thru RV sites with full hookup.
The property also boasts sites for tent


camping, hiking and other natural
fresh water enjoyment around the ar-
eas of the three springs.
The Gilchrist County Comimission-
ers discussed the proposed sale and
determined the park proposal could
be interesting for Gilchrist County,
and it could tie the greenways along
CR 232 together. The commission
is expected to meet with a SRWMD
representative in a future meeting.


Bell man arrested, charged Heavy rainfall triggers sinkholes

with sexual battery on


child under 1:
By Carrie A. Mizell
A 29-year-old Bell man is being
held in the Dixie County Jail without
bond after being arrested on July 27
and charged with sexual battery on
a child under 12, lewd and lascivi-
ous act in the presence of a child and
contributing to the delinquency of a
minor.
According to Captain Chad Reed
of the Dixie County Sheriff's Office,
,Cody Blair was engaged in various
sexual acts with a child and had also
performed sexual acts in the pres-
ence of the child. According to a filed
complaint, Blair allegedly provided
tobacco products to the child and en-
couraged its use.
Blair was interviewed by DCSO
investigators and during the inter-
view, he provided information and
evidence that resulted in his arrest on
the listed charges, explained Reed.
During the interview, it was deter-
mined that there may be additional
victims, some of whom live in Gil-


Cody Blair
christ County.
According to Reed, Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office investigators
are also looking into the possibility of
multiple victims and are interviewing
additional witnesses who may have
information pertaining to Blair's ac-
tivities.

Over six inches of rainfall were reported in some areas of south Gilchrist County last week. Several sinkholes were reported near County Road
341. Local resident Ray Sanders took numerous pictures of the sinkhole shown above, which fell in a half mile from his home on the northside
of the Greenway Trail. According to Sanders, one new sinkhole fell in last week as well as a repeat sinkhole, which had previously been repaired
by county employees who used 14 loads offill and six loads oflimerock boulders to fill in the sinkhole. Sanders was told that another six to
seven loads will be used to fill in the latest sinkhole.

City of Trenton joins forces on regional well field


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Trenton City Commissioners met
Monday, Aug. 4, and the first item on
their agenda was the Regional Well
Field in Gilchrist County. The well
field is in the process of being devel-
oped and will be located near Bell.
The parties involved are the Gilchrist
County Commissioners, Gilchrist
County School Board and hopefully
the City of Trenton and the Town of
Bell.
The Trenton City Commissioners
tentatively agreed to join forces with
the county and school district so that
in the future they can hopefully use
this new well field. The county is
working with the Suwannee River
Water Management District at this
time to help with the funding of the
land. The land that is being consid-
ered is a 80 acre parcel located out-
side Bell.


County Commissioner Randy Dur-
den explained the need for this well
field not just for this time period but
the importance of securing water
rights for the future, for all the citi-
zens of the county.
Trenton City Commissioners Ran-
dy Rutter and Tim Kinsey said that
they were in favor of securing Tren-
ton's water from a well field inside
the county instead of relying on a out
of county well field.
Over the past several months Tren-
ton City Manager Jered Ottenwess
has been attending meetings in Levy
County concerning a future well field
there. Trenton Commissioners at one
time thought they could benefit from
being a part of that regional well field.
During the meeting the City Com-
missioners gave Ottenwess the direc-
tive to inform the Levy County group
at this time Trenton was not willing


to sign an interlocal agreement with
the cities of Chiefland and Fanning
Springs to become a permanent part
of their well field group. All the Tren-
ton Commissioners were in favor of
joining the county and school board


in their effort to work together to se-
cure a regional well field within Gil-
christ County.
In earlier meetings it had been re-
vealed that Trenton would not be al-

County Commissioners will

hear Blue Springs request

for special use exception
Gilchrist County Planner Taylor Brown told the Gilchrist County Board
of County Commissioners on Monday that a public hearing on Blue Springs
Properties' request for a special use exception to build a water bottling plant
on County Road 340 will be held on Tuesday, Sept. 30 at 6 p.m.
At the meeting, which will be held in the Trenton High School Auditorium,
county commissioners are expected to hear public comment before voting on
the special use exception. Concerned citizens will have two minutes each to
speak on the issue.

MEET*TIIE*CA


This week: Candidates for County Commission, Dist.


oPIATES A


3 / Next week: Candidates for County Commission, Dist. 5


Barrett Brown


Name: Barrett Brown
Seeking office as: Democrat
What prompted you to seek
election? I am seeking election for
county commissioner because the
ongoing trend of the 'commission is
to make decisions based on their own
personal opinions instead of voting
on issues based on the needs of the
citizens. I would be a commissioner
who represents the majority of the
citizens of this county.
Past leadership/political expe-
rience: For the past two and a half
years I have been the owner/operator
of my own site construction business.
The decisions small business owners
make daily teach you quickly the
leadership skills you must have to be
successful. I have no political expe-
rience, but 'I don't consider it neces-
sary to have. political experience in
order to make sound, common sense
business decisions for our county.
Why are you the right candi-
date for the job? I am not a politi-
cian. "Honesty is the best policy" is
a phrase I believe in. My answer to a
specific question will not change de-
pending on which side of the county
I am on. At the end of the day, I will
not worry about the citizens of our
county saying I talk out of both sides
of my mouth.
In your opinion, what key issue
is the Gilchrist County Commis-
sion currently facing? Budget is-
sues related to industrial and residen-
tial. growth. Our county had a $1.4M
grant for the EMS facility, yet current
donimissioners vote'dto spend '$1;8M


on that facility. The current com-
mission does not spend within their
means.
What solution would you offer to
remedy this issue? Communication
with the citizens of Gilchrist County
on proposed industry and residential
growth that the county is facing is
key. Likewise, communicating with
department heads on budget issues is
critical.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a county commis-
sioner? If elected, my first priority
would be to get a handle on spending
taxpayer's money. Taxes are a way
of life. However, as your next county
commissioner, I will always try to re-
duce spending before reaching into
your wallet for more tax dollars.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county, and, in your opin-
ion, what should the county do to
deal with growth? Growth, to me,
is a double-edged sword. Growth re-
quires expansion of government ser-
vices, but also brings more jobs and a
larger tax base. Growth that is man-
aged and planned well in advance
can be.a good thing.
In regards to the impact Amend-
ment 1 is having by reducing the
amount of property taxes paid by
residents, do you feel the county
commissioners should reduce the
level of services, realign their de-
partmental budgets or reduce
staff? Honestly, with the informa-
tionI have at this time, I would have
to explore all options. The county
is going through lean times that will
require some tough decisions by the
Board of County Commissioners.
Would you be in favor of anoth-
er water bottling plant opening in
Gilchrist County? No.
How would you work to provide
valuable jobs/activities that would
support the youth of Gilchrist
County? To be able to provide good
jobs we need to bring in clean in-
dustry such as the proposed power
plant. By bringing in industry such
as that, the tax base will be increased
and Gilchrist residents will have bet-
ter paying jobs with less commute.
With the time and money saved:from
a closer commute to work, parents
would be able to invest more time in
their children through school activi-
ies' ind the SVL.

Randy Durden
Name: Randy Durden
Seeking office as: Democrat
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? After being active in several
organizations and after attending sev-
eral months of county commissioner
meetings, I felt like I had the passion
and desire to be able to try to help
build the future-for Gilchrist County
and its citizens. I also had many peo-
ple approach me and ask me to run
for this office.
Past leadership/political expe-
rience: I served for one term many
years ago as city commissioner in
Trenton: I am currently serving as
county commissioner, district 3 and
have since 1996. I have served as
chairman of the BOCC for five years
and vice-chair for three years, posi-
tions, which are chosen by my fellow
board members. I also serve on sev-
eral boards and committees.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? I believe that my past
experience as county commissioner
and my vast knowledge of budgets
and issues that face Gilchrist County
and my continued passion for this
job make me the right candidate. I
continue to educate myself on all the
issues to be able to make the right de-
cisions. I also have a strong working
relationship with our municipalities
and legislators.
In your opinion, what key issue is
the Gilchrist County Commission
currently facing? The biggest issue
I believe, is the loss of revenue this
current budget year and the unknown
toss of revertue thNI e will be fac-
ing in the upcoming budget process
for 2008-2009. It will be a challenge
to be able to continue to provide the
current services to our citizens. The
ever-increasing price of fuel will only
compound this problem.
What solution would you offer to
remedy this issue? The solution is to
look at all budgets in the county and
make all the cuts that are possible,
which we currently do in every bud-
get process. Prioritizing those cuts is
the most difficult process.


GENERAL CIVIL


What service is important to one
taxpayer may not be important to the
next.
If elected what would be your
first priority as a county commis-
sioner? To continue to work with all
board departments, county staff and
constitutional officers on an equal
basis to provide and improve service
to the taxpayers of Gilchrist County.
Provide the best service at a mini-
mal cost to the taxpayer. Continue to
work with our senior citizens.
How do you see growth affecting
the county, and, in your opinion,
what should the county do to deal
with growth? Growth will continue
to put a strain on Gilchrist County
and its services. I believe that we
should continue to update our Com-
prehensive Plan to meet the needs of
the citizens and more importantly the
taxpayers. We need to go through up-
dating our Vision Statement through
citizen input and look at all informa-
tion that is available to us. We need to
look at improving our infrastructure
to attract positive growth.
In regards to the impact Amend-
ment 1 is having by reducing the
amount of property taxes paid by
residents, do you feel the county
commissioners should reduce the
level of services, realign their de-
partmental budgets or reduce
staff? Until we know the real impact
of Amendment 1 along with the loss
of Sales Tax Revenues and' Fuel Tax'
Revenues, it is difficult to make those
decisions. Realigning departmental
budgets will certainly have the least
impact of the three decisions. I be-
lieve that eveiy department is differ-
ent and that we will need to look at
each one and also look at the services
that they provide to make the best de-
cision.
Would you be in favor of water
bottling plant opening in Gilchrist
County? As a current member of the
county commission, I cannot answer
this question with a yes or no answer
for legal reasons. I can only say that
I will look at the evidence that is pre-
sented at the meeting and determine
from' that evidence what would be
the best decision for Gilchrist County
and its future.
How would you work to provide
valuable jobs/activities that would
support the. youth -of- Gilchrist
-County? I have always supported all
'youth activities *in Gilchrist County
even before I became a county com-
missioner and I will continue to do
so. I have worked with the landown-
ers in Gilchrist County to try to come
up with a countywide recreation park
to enhance what we already have. I
also am currently on the committee
working to bring a LCCC Campus to
Gilchrist County that will provide lo-
cal college education as well as job
opportunities.

William "Bil." Wolford
Name: William "Bill Wolford
Name: William "Bill Wolford
Seeking office as: Republican
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? I've been self-employed for 11
years working with the public, and I
feel that I can help with the economic
problems by serving in this office.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: I own my on business (Bill's
Feed of Trenton).
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? I am the right candidate
for the job because I am a man who
believes in open door politics and
serving the little people, like me, in
Gilchrist County.
In your opinion, what key issue is
the Gilchrist County Commission
currently facing? In my opinion,
economics is the problem in Gilchrist
County today.
What solution would you offer
to remedy this issue? The solution
for the economic problems in our
county is to fix what is broken and
move forward if something is not
working. CORRECT'the problem
immediately. This is the way I have
run my business for 11 years. With
the economy today we have to save


mcnelf m


all the money we can; by taking care
of the little things, the big things will
fall into place.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a county commis-
sioner? My first priority would be to
-learn the job of county commissioner
district 3 properly, to better serve my
county and be available for the citi-
zens of Gilchrist County.
How do you see the growth af-
fecting the county, and, in your
opinion, what should the county do
to deal with growth? You can't stop
growth in the county. People are go-
ing to continue moving into our won-
derful community. I have come to the
conclusion that when the problems
come up, we will have to deal with
them openly and honestly.
.In regards to the impact Amend-
ment 1 is having by reducing the
amount of property taxed by resi-
dents, do you feel the county com-
missioners should reduce the level
of services, realign their depart-
mental budgets or reduce staff? I
cannot honestly answer this question
without the facts and figures on the
subject.
Would you be in favor of water
bottling plant opening in Gilchrist
County? NO, the people of the coun-
ty that I have talked to have been
against it. If elected, I would work
for the people and strive to do what
they want to see happen in Gilchrist
County.
How would you work to provide
valuable jobs/activities that would
support the youth of Gilchrist
County? I would listen to the people
and support our youth by helping to
make jobs more available so our chil-
dren can live in our beautiful county,
by being more business friendly.
About the activities, I would have to
get with the youth and together de-
cide what kinds of activities to bring
into our community.

Vote for Performance Not Politics
If I am elected to the school board on August 26,
I will start work right away and study the budget
so I will know what our financial sitttion is.
All employees need to be fairly compensated, but
we cannot commit to spending money we don't
have. Not getting a pay increase is not a good
thing, but losing your job is worse. Every em-
ployee is depending on his/her salary to make a
living.
Cutting jobs is a very serious matter. Also when
we overspend our budget, the students will ulti-
mately suffer.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Now Ca Mi7ze

By Carrie A. Mizell


Political years make me grateful
for my 22-inch computer screen.
Thanks to the shade my McIntosh
provides, I am able to sit at my desk,
listen to conversation at the front
counter and not be seen by whoever
is talking about the dreary economy,
local politics, and/or the colorful let-
ters to the editor we have received
lately.
With my news antenna up and my
head tucked down I have learned that
everyone has an opinion. They vary.
considerably.
One thing is for sure whether dem-
ocrat or republican, seasoned politi-
cian or new to the campaign trail;
candidates for Gilchrist County Com-
mission share a common interest:
concern for the future in the wake of
strong budget cuts at the state level.
Currently, the county commission-
ers are reviewing submitted propos-
als from each department as part of
a budget workshop process for the
2008-2009 fiscal year.
Like every other person in Gilchrist
County, I, too, have an opinion and
even a suggestion for cutting costs.
After communicating with staff at
the Gilchrist County Administrator's
Office, I understand that eight county


employees, five from the Road De-
partment and three from Public Safe-
ty, drive their county vehicles home
each day.
I don't know, nor do I care who
these employees are. I would only
suggest that the Gilchrist County
Commission closely consider saving
fuel and maintenance costs on county
vehicles by looking at how many
call-outs the employees taking home
county vehicles are actually respond-
ing to.
The county commissioners should
consider asking both Road Depart-
ment and Public Safety Department
heads to indicate how many call-outs
they had per vehicle over a six-month
period.
If the employees are responding to
few or no callouts at all then it really
seems unnecessary that they drive a
county vehicle home. Establish a new
policy saying that a county employee
must respond to a certain number of
callouts per year to warrant driving a
county vehicle home.
I urge all citizens who have a cost-
saving suggestion for county officials
to speak up. There will be no better
time than now to let your voice be
heard.

I COOKING AND CARRYING' ONI
By Cindy Jo Ayers


The state of our schools
I use this public forum to ques-
tion the present state of affairs of our
Gilchrist County schools and to ask
the current superintendent to explain
his actions.
Recently, FCAT scores were re-
leased, but I am puzzled by the re-
sponse of Superintendent James
Vickers. Bell Elementary continued
as an 'A,' but Principal Rick Reed
was removed from his position and
sent to Bell Middle High. Bell Middle
High received an 'A', but Principal
Ronda Parrish was demoted'to Assis-
tant Principal of Trenton Elementary.
Trenton Elementary had another 'A',
and the principal, Mrs. Jean Ledvina,
was offered a demotion to assistant
principal at Bell for her hard work.
When she refused, she was forced to
resign. Using Mr. Vickers' visual re-
minder, the school bus and his being
the driver of HIS bus; Mrs. Ledvina
was basically told to "Get off MY
bus." Now to one reason for this let-
ter: Trenton Middle High School fell


from an 'A' to a 'B, but Principal Ly-
nette Langford was left in place. Why
was this same principal allowed to
force a qualified assistant principal
into the classroom while keeping as
her assistant an unqualified employ-
ee? Why?
Most people would agree with the
saying, "If it ain't broke, don't fix
it!" .Three schools were obviously,
not broken. Why would Mr. Vickers
keep the lowest performing principal
and target the other principals who
met the lofty goal of an "A" rating?
Three administrators did everything
asked of them. I would have thought
he would have rewarded those who
met their goals, not demote, demor-
alize, and dishonor them by his bla-
tant misuse of power. We who know
Mrs. Ledvina, feel we lost one of our
finest managers and most beloved
principals in this district's history.
She was one of the most hard-work-
ing and consistent administrators, al-
ways quiet in her manner and leading
that school's staff by example. Her

ask not to do but are told they will
take what is offered or they can join
the 100 plus teachers and staff who
have left during the leadership of this
superintendent? Can he not see that
staff morale dropped like a rock un-
der his guidance? Can he not under;
stand that teachers are specialized by
subjects taught and ages of the stu-
dents? Teachers are not all qualified
to teach everything just as doctors are
not all qualified to practice in every
area. Would we ask a brain surgeon
to operate on our hearts? Aren't they
all doctors? Didn't they all go to
medical school? Didn't they all learn
about the heart and brain? Then, why
doesn't Mr. Vickers listen when the
principals and teachers try to explain
this to him? Why?
We, as concerned citizens and tax-
payers, have a right to know why Mr.
Vickers has taken one of the finest
school districts in the state and put it
into an apparent financial abyss. Is it
true that during the first three years
under his management our district
went from having a surplus of $1.4
million in a contingency fund to not
being able to pay teachers their sum-
mer salaries without floating loans?
Is it true there is so little money left
in the budget that our district does not
have enough money to buy the new
reading series, which was to be ad-
opted this year? Why will Mr. Thom-
as have to return to a system in finan-
cial shambles when he left the district
with all new facilities, money in the
bank, and joyful, selfless employees
who would work on their holidays
and weekends for the good of the
children? Did Mr. Vickers not see the
need for the pats on the back, an open
door policy, and time to hear sugges-
tions, complaints, or compliments? In
his quest for a "World Class School
System" did he not know the funda-
mental law of management is to be
first class in his treatment of his most
valuable resource, the employees?
Mr. Vickers, we ask you to use this
venue to comment on our concerns.
You have used this, public forum to
express your opinion of the school's
role in a global market and how we
must abandon our old ways like vo-


Some Men's Sins Are Clearly Evident
(Kent Heaton)

An orange tree has a distinct pattern to its growth and hidden from the Lord. Evil that men do in this life may
the fruit is an easily identifiable produce. An orange would never be found out but the consequence of their actions
not be mistaken for the tomato because the fruits are so will be found in'the judgment of the Lord. David tried to
different from one another. Bananas would never be hide is sin from the Lord but was not successful (2 Samuel


confused with apples nor watermelons for coconuts. In
speaking of false teachers, Jesus said, "You will know
them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn
bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? So every good
tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit. A
good tree cannot produce bad fruit, nor can a bad tree
produce good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good
fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, you
will know them by their fruits" (Matthew 7:15-20). It is,
clear that men can see in one another various
characteristics that show them to be true or false.
However, there are some things that men hide from
others that will not be known until judgment. The spirit of
the hypocrite is the ability to hide the false face,of deceit.
Jesus describes the character of those whose lives show
forth false teaching by the things they say and the things
they do. The examination of the heart will determine the
truth of a person's character. Some men are not so evident.
Paul told Timothy in 1 Timothy 5:24,24: "The sins of
some men are quite evident, 'going before them to
judgment; for others, their sins follow after. Likewise
also, deeds that are good are quite evident, and those
which are otherwise cannot be concealed" (1 Timothy
5:24-25).


11,12). Ananias and Sapphira sought to hold back part of
the price of the land they sold but through the revelation of
the Holy Spirit were found out (Acts 5).
For those who seek to do good their deeds are also
evident. The glory of Lord is seen in their lives. "Let your
light shine before men in such a way that they may see
your good works, and glorify your Father who is in
heaven" (Matthew 5:16). Righteous men are known by
their righteous deeds. "Little children, make sure no one
deceives you; the one who practices righteousness is
righteous, just as He is righteous" (1 John 3:7). In a world
given over to the lust of the flesh and desires to serve self,
holy men and women of God live in such a way their
example of faith is evident to all. "Beloved, I urge you as
aliens and strangers to abstain from fleshly lusts which
wage war against the souL Keep your behavior excellent
among the Gentiles, so that in the thing in which they
slander you as evildoers, they may because of your good
deeds, as they observe them, glorify God in the day of
visitation" (1 Peter 2:11-12).
Our lives should always be to show the glory of God
living in us. While some men's sins are clearly evident our
lives of holiness should be even more clear. "Prove
yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God


The point of Paul's lesson to Timothy is that no matter above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse
what men do, all will be found out one day. Moses told the generation, among whom you appear as lights in the
children of Reuben and Gad, "But if you will not do so, world, holding fast the word of life, so that in the day of
behold, you have sinned against the Lord, and be sure Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in
your sin will find you out" (Numbers 32:23). Nothing is vain nor toil in vain" (Philippians 2:14-16).

Thank each politician
In a few weeks, the dust will settle
as the primary elections are decided.
The same will happen again in No-
vember. Unfortunately, only one per-
son can prevail for each position.
I say this because all of those seek-
ing office are good people, trying
to make a difference, attempting to
make things better.
'As'we congratulate the winners in
the primary and general elections, we
should also take a moment to thank
each candidate who did not prevail.
They are the people who make this
county a great place to live. They,
and their families, make great sacri-
fices to run for office.
We, who do not run for office,
should be grateful.

This week I planto continue the ac-
count of my recent vacation up north.
Each year my high school friend,
Beth Davis and I take a quilt related
vacation.
After leaving the wonderfully made
quilts of Lancaster County, Pennsyl-
vania we hit the road again traveling
northward through New York state
and into the Green Mountains of
Vermont. Late in the afternoon we
arrived at a bed and breakfast near
Manchester in the southeastern part
of the Green Mountains. This area
is famous for their Battenkill River
which is home to a native popula-
tion of trout. Fly fisherman travel to
Manchester from everywhere to fish
the Batten Kill River and enjoy the
beauty of the mountains. The nation-
al headquarters of the Orivs Compa-
ny is located there. It is also.home to
the beautiful Equinox Hotel which is
a little posh for two old Florida girls,
but it sure was a sight to behold. I
thought it was interesting when I
learned that the Equinox is home of
the British School of Falconry.
Vermont has so many historic
building which I love. Many of these
historic buildings have wonderful
very old weathervanes mounted atop
steep slate roofs.
For years I have heard how beauti-
ful the state of Vermont is and I have
to tell you, I don't think the calen-
ders do it justice. Wow, wonderful
1700's church buildings with tall
white steeples standing tall in front
of back-drops of green, green moun-
tains. Giant maple, beech and birch
trees line main streets of every small
Vermont town. I can only imagine all
those hardwood leaves once they turn
the vivid hues of autumn.
Wd crossed the lower part of the.
state and arrived at our destination
of Center Harbor, New Hampshire in
the early afternoon.
As you may have guessed the
desired destination was Keepsake
Quilting. This store sends out cata-
logs throughout the U.S. to many
quilters. Now, for years we have been
talking about traveling to this store.
But I have to tell you it really wasn't
anything to write home about. Yes,
our local quilt store has much more
to offer the average quilter.
Our hotel was on the shore of
Lake Winnipesaukee and we enjoyed
watching the boaters and local kids
swimming at the public beach. Their
soil is so rich that the daylilies grew
to about as high as our shoulders.
We jumped back into the car ear-
ly the next morning and traveled to'
Shelburne, Vermont. The reason to
visit this area was the Shelburne Mu-


seum. I had read about the famous
collections of Electra Havemeyer
Webb.
Located in Vermont's scenic Lake
Champlain Valley, Shelburne Mu-
seum is one of the nation's finest,
most diverse, and .unconventional
museums of art and Americana. Over
150,000 works are exhibited in a
remarkable setting of 39 exhibition
buildings, 25 of which are historic
and were relocated to the Museum
grounds. 'he grounds were wonder-
ful with flowers in full bloom.
Upon elitering the museum grounds
visitors first encounter a huge 1901
round wooden and stone barn. From
there it is just one interesting historic
building after another, and they all
house fascinating collections. We saw
everything from a collection of life-
size wooden Indians to five works by
Claude Monet. One building houses
the textile exhibit which contains
over 100 early American quits, as
well as a collection of hooked rugs.
As we wandered through these col-
lections, we viewed wonderful
blown glass walking canes, hat boxes
and cases of every size and color. We
spent a half day at this museum dodg-
ing the rain. I have to tell you if you
ever get the chance go for the entire
day, do it. The grounds are beautiful,
and the food at the museum cafe is
really good too.
In next week's column we will
travel on to New York and the falls.

Oops, last week's recipe for Pepper
Cabbage had a mistake. The dressing
called for 2 tablespoons of salt and it
should have been only 1 tablespoon.
This recipe is very easy and quick
to cook.


1 pound shrimp, unpeeled
1 teaspoon salt
1.teaspoon pepper
1/3 cup Worcestershire sauce
Tabasco, to tastes
2 lemons
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons miniced onion
1/2 stick butter
Line the sides and bottom of a
9x13 pan with foil. Arrange shrimp in
bottom of pan (do not layer shrimp).
Combine salt, pepper, Worcestershire
sauce, Tabasco, garlic and onions and
mix well. Pour over shrimp. Slice
butter and arrange pieces over the
shrimp. Slice lemons into thin slices
and layer over shrimp. Cover with
foil and bake for 10 minutes at 450
degrees, then uncover and bake 3-5
minutes more.

Suwannee Valley
League's 2008 All-
Star Baseball Team
Thanks You for
Support '
On behalf of the Suwannee Val-
ley League's 2008 All-Star baseball
teams, we would like to thank you
for your financial contribution. Your
support allowed us to take our 10U,
12U, and 14U teams of all-star play-
ers to the various tournaments in
Florida. This provided our teams
with a unique opportunity to com-
pete against the top teams in North
Florida.
The 10U team of 12 players was
selected from our ."small league"
consisting of 42 players in the minor
division. These boys participated in
the Small District tournament, com-
peting against teams from the other
small leagues in our area. By defeat-
ing Hamilton County in the champi-
onship game, the team received the
1st place trophy. This achievement
earned them entry in to the Small
State Tournament in Ft. White. On
June 26-29, the team traveled to Ft.
White to compete against the cham-
pionship teams from the Small Dis-
trict Tournaments in North Florida.
The boys played well and proudly
brought home the 2nd place trophy
after a tough loss to Lakeshore.
The 12U team of 10 players was
selected from our "small league"
consisting of 28 players in the major
division. These boys, nicknamed the
"Tenacious Ten," took 1st place in the
Small District tournament, defeating
teams from the other "small leagues"
in our area. They then advanced to
the Large District Tournament where
they played against the all-star teams
from the "large leagues" (leagues that
have at least 50 players in the major
division). In the Large District Tour-
nament, the Tenacious Ten earned the
1st place trophy. On July 10-412, the
team traveled to Jacksonville Beach
to compete against the championship
teams from the Large District Tour-
naments in North Florida, The boys
received the honor of being one of
the top 6 teams in North Florida.
The 14U team of 11 players was
selected through open try-outs and
consisted of players from Trenton
and Bell. Due to the fact that there
are no other 14U teams in our small
district, the team advanced to the
Large District Tournament in Live
Oak, where they played against all-
star teams from the "large leagues"
(leagues that have at least 50 players
in the junior division) in our district.
In the Large District Tournament, the
14U team earned the 1st place plaque
by defeating Ft. White in the champi-
onship game.
On July 17-20, the team traveled
to Jacksonville to compete against
the championship teams from the
Large District Tournaments in North
Florida.
The team was able to proudly bring
home the distinction of being in the

Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County,
I am Cindy Slaughter, the proud wife of Daniel Slaughter, Candidate for Gilchrist
County Sheriff. Having been a law enforcement officer's wife for over 15 years, I
would like to share my thoughts with you on why my husband is our best candidate
for Gilchrist County Sheriff.
Having a career in law enforcement is truly a family affair. The law enforcement
officer and his family understands the job requires long and unpredictable hours,
dealing with difficult situations, and knowing that the officer may be asked to put his
or her life on the line for the safety of others. Sacrifice is accepted as being part of
the law enforcement life, based on the knowledge that excellence in law enforce-
ment requires a service above self work ethic. When we send our loved ones off to
do their duties at all times of the day and night, we send a kiss, a hug, and a prayer
for their safe return when their duties are completed.
When Daniel made the decision to run for Sheriff, it was indeed a family affair once
more! Our family understood the sacrifice and dedication that would be required
from the demands of Daniel's career. With excitement, our four young adult children
and their families gave their full blessings and support for his campaign. The first
promise Daniel made to us was that he would run a strong and clean campaign, and
our family has proudly watched him do this with class and integrity. While on the
campaign trail, voters have welcomed us with open arms and we have been over-
whelmed by the support and encouragement he is receiving.
My husband's qualifications for the Office of Sheriff are based on his having the
Right Values, the Right Experience and the Right Priorities. His 20 plus years of
dedicated law enforcement experience, which has included multiple aspects of law
enforcement, have given him the experience and knowledge necessary to effectively
and efficiently lead the men and women of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.
Daniel and I love living and working in Gilchrist County and we both share the
desire for this wonderful place we live, work and raise our families in to be Safe and
Secure for ALL citizens. Daniel's family understands that when you vote for Daniel
Slaughter on August 26th for Gilchrist County Sheriff, you will elect a man with a
lot of common sense and experience to do a hard job by bringing knowledge, dedica-
tion and integrity to the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.
From our family to yours, thank you for your support!

Trenton to send
su rvpv n K


a TI V ,,T .
citizens
this week
After some discussion at the Mon-
day meeting of the City Commission-
ers of Trenton they agreed on which
survey format to send out. Each of the
.city's water customers will receive a
survey this week. The idea of a sur-
vey began during the July 29 meeting
while commissioners were discussing
the city budget for the 2008-2009.
Commissioner Randy Rutter sug-
gested that commissioners talk to the
people of Trenton to find out what
city services they wanted the most.
After City Manager Jered Ottenwess
went over the proposed budget it be-
came clear that there was very little
money left over for a reserve in the
city budget. Auditors have warned
the city that they should have around
$200,000 in reserve.
It took the implementation of a 3
mill tax and a hike in water rates to
help pay off the debit during this bud-
get year. Now that the debit has been
taken care of there seems to be no ex-
tra money in the budget to build the
reserve or'to start to repair the aging
infrastructure of the city.
Commissioner Rutter expressed
concern about the very old water
pipes all over the city and the need of
street repair and paving.
During the discussion Rutter sug-
gested that several of the big ticket
items in the budget were the Po-
lice Department which comes in at
$216,000 and animal control which
is budgeted for $33,800. The Police
Department is nearly one quarter of
the entire city budget.
It was suggested at the meeting
that the citizens might be willing to
give up some services or to do with-
out such a large police budget in or-
der to repair water lines, street paving
or street repair and to build a reserve.
The survey will poll the citizens to
see how much value eaoh service has
for them and if they would be in fa-
vor of having increased water bills in
the future to help fund them.
The surveys are in the mail, and it
is important that every citizen fill out
his or her survey and return it to the
city as soon as possible so that the in-
formation can be used during budget
workshops.

Sheriff's Office Substations
I have been asked my opinion about, and read other Sheriff's candidates articles
about Sheriff's Office Substations in different areas of Gilchrist County. Let me first
state that I am not opposed to Substations for the Sheriff's Office. Substations are
designed to better serve the citizens of the county by providing a safe and secure
place for citizens to come and seek law enforcement assistance in a designated area
within their neighborhoods.
With the current amount of deputies that are staffed on a daily basis, it would not be
possible for the Substation to be open all 24 hours a day and seven days a week. This
would be a huge issue for any candidate for Sheriff of Gilchrist County. It was not
long ago, on July 4, 2004 that a woman went to the Ocala Police Department seeking
law enforcement assistance and she was gunned down by her husband on the Police
Department steps. This was a tragic incident, but Ocala Police Department had
twelve officers on duty during that time and could not prevent this situation.
The question is not can you set up a Substation, but how do you plan to prevent the
same type of incidents from occurring in Gilchrist County?
I do not believe that we have enough deputies on a shift or even at the Sheriff's
Office to maintain a Substation'anywhere in.Gilchrist County. I do not want any
citizen to gain a false hope by going to a Substation that may not be occupied, when
they really need assistance or protection only to find out all of their hope was nothing
more than a empty building.
I personally would not want that for my family, nor do I want it for the citizens of
Gilchrist County. Some will say this may not happen in Gilchrist County, but do you
want to take that chance and gamble on citizen's faith in law enforcement. I WILL
NOT!!!!!!!
As Sheriff, I will require deputies to patrol neighborhoods instead of sitting in a
substation. I believe that the safety of Gilchrist County citizens will be better served
in this manner.

Switching from plastic to paper milk cartons,

will save district more than meal rate

increase would generate ,


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County School
Board voted unanimously last
week not to raise breakfast and
lunch rates for middle-high school
students after it was determined
that switching from plastic milk
jugs to paper cartons would save
the district $27,500 each year.
During a budget workshop on
July 21, Director of Food Service
Danna Tucker recommended the
school board increase meal rates
by .10 cents for the upcoming
school year. The increase in meal
rates would have generated an ad-
ditional $9,834 this school year,
Tucker said.
Following a 50 cent increase in
meal rates from 2006-07 to 2007-
08, school board members felt than
an additional increase this school
year would be substantial especial-
ly with the economy in the shape it

is, explained Michelle Carter, school,
board member.
According to Carter, the school
board asked food service to look at
other avenues where cost could be
reduced and ultimately, the school
board decided to change the kind
of milk the district purchases from
plastic jug containers to cardboard
cartons.
Over the last two years since the
school district changed from card-
board cartons to plastic jug contain-
ers, which cost 7 cents more per jug,
milk consumption has increased
within the schools by 6.4 percent,
Tucker pointed out. The food service
director said that if the recommenda-
tion had been approved, the increase
would have required middle-high
school students pay $2.25 for break-
fast and $2.75 for lunch each day.
Lunch rates for the 2008-2009
school year will remain the same

tional pancakes as well as, blueberry

elementary school students will .

lunch, while middle-high school
students will continue to pay $2.15

Tucker had cited a number of C
problems facing the Child Nutri-
tion Program as cause for seek-
ing the lunch rate increase at the
middle-high school level. Those
factors include an increase in op- A
rating costs such as food costs,
fuel/delivery costs and labor costs.
According to Tucker, program rev-
enues are also decreasing as federal
reimbursement has not kept pace .7

Ifeel that it is important for the deputies to be out patrolling the roads in the county,
and to get to know the citizens. As the citizens get to know the deputies, this will
build a better working relationship between the citizens and the Sheriff's
department. Without the help of the citizens, many crimes go unsolved.

Elect Billy Smith for Sheriff of Gilchrist County

Dedicated to Protecting our Citizens

One of the most valuable resources we have is our Senior
Citizens. Collectively, they possess a vast array of
knowledge based on experience.

Senior citizens are often the targets of criminal activity,
particularly scams. Seniors can be targeted by telephone,
through the mail, door-to-door or over the Internet.
Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, then it probably
is. There have been numerous crimes against Senior
Citizens here in our County.

If elected Sheriff, I plan to:
I Implement a program to check on our senior citizens.
This program would allow a deputy to stop and visit with our
seniors a few minutes a week just to let them know that
someone does care.
* To increase awareness of crimes against senior citizens.
* To sponsor programs for senior citizens to reduce fear of crime and educate older citizens
about preventive measures they can take to protect themselves.
* To improve communication and understanding between senior citizens and law enforcement.
I am very excited for the future of Gilchrist County, and I look forward to the challenges that lie
ahead. I hope that you will provide me the opportunity to serve as your Sheriff by voting for me
in the Primary Election on August 26, 2008. Please visit my website at:
www.BillySmithforSheriff.com or telephone me at 352-538-5823.

^ Gilchrist County Commissioner District 3
In this weeks Gilchrist County Journal, you will be able to read the responses of the editor's questions that were presented
to the Candidates for County Commissioner in District 3. I would like to expand on one of those questions that we were,
asked.
How do you see growth affecting the county and in your opinion what should the county do
to deal with growth?
I have always believed that we should keep intact our Rural Image that makes Gilchrist County a wonderful place
to live, and that has made Gilchrist County one of the top 10 Rural places in America to live. Such notoriety has
made it so that Gilchrist County is not a secret to those who wish to move to a wonderful County full of World
Class Springs and laid back living, where Agriculture is still a way of life. With such national coverage of our
County comes with it the inevitability of having Development trying to make its way into Gilchrist County. Now
is the time that we, as County Commissioners, need to make sure that our Comprehensive Plan is strong enough
and has the type of language in it to protect the future of Gilchrist County from any unwanted growth. I, along
with the other County Commissioners, have put into motion a plan to make sure our Comprehensive Plan is what
it needs to be and is what the citizens and taxpayers of Gilchrist County want it to be. This will be the updating of
our Vision Statement which was originally put together in 2000 and 2001 and was brought about by the input from
many Citizens and Public Officials. The Board of County Commissioners has asked for input from the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs, which will include information and reports from the Department of Transportation,
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, Department of Education, and other agencies that will help in
forming language that we can include in our Comprehensive Plan for future growth. These agencies provide this
information to Counties at NO charge to help with growth issues. As I stated in the Board of County Commission-
ers meeting on June 2nd 2008, I will not agree to make any changes to our Comprehensive Plan until we receive
this information from DCA and until the Vision Statement is updated with the input and support from the CITI-
ZENS AND TAXPAYERS OF GILCHRIST COUNTY. Any significant changes to our Comp. Plan is too big an
issue for the future of Gilchrist County to make a decision based on emotion or insufficient facts.
I have always prided myself as YOUR County Commissioner to make sure that I have all the facts and knowledge
that are available to me before I make a decision. I have never had a problem standing up for what is best for the
future of Gilchrist County and that will will NEVER change. If you look at my voting record as YOUR County
Commissioner on issues that come before the Board, I do not base my decisions on whether it will win or lose a
vote. 1 base my decisions after weighing ALL the FACTS.
Protecting Gilchrist County's way of life is every Citizen's responsibility. Please be of part of our
Visioning Update.

If you would like to further discuss this issue or any other issue, please call me
at 386-935-3256 or 352-745-0221 or e-mail me at rddurden@windstream.net

This is a thank you letter to Mr. Kenrick Thomas.
Mr. Kenrick, I as a parent of children from elementary to middle school
would like to tell you how much I appreciate all you have done for sup-
porting Gilchrist County, especially our youths.
I've seen you at 4-H to FFA events, from fun day to Suwannee River
Fair, you've been there showing your support and encouragement.
You're always willing to talk to our children, offering advice or just to
shake a hand. Thank you for your dedication to today's youth and contin-
ued support throughout the County. It is such an honor to have you as our
county commissioner.
So if you want someone that goes above and beyond his duties, and
actually cares a lot about our youth and county, re-elect Mr. Kenrick
Thomas as County Commissioner.
Thank you,
Sharla Smith

Vote Charlie Caulk for Sheriff
"Motivated and Experienced .
The next sheriff of Gilchrist County will be faced with many challenges in the
operation of the sheriff's office. While most tasks will be routine in the nature forO
thdse candidates who have serveifas detpty sheriff, there will be fiany whibh0
S\ill.geqt~ire'agreat deal of research and planning. No one candidate cgn realisti-|
cally claim he knows all the procedures and mandates for the operation of the;
sheriff's office and jail. I feel that experience in leadership, law enforcement and,
administrative skills are the keys to success for the next sheriff.
My experience is unique in that I have served in both military supervisory and law enforcement capaci-
ties.: During my Navy career, I not only received much formal and informal leadership and management
training, I served in the capacity of a supervisor, manager and administrator for over 11 years. I directly
supervised up to 59 men while being in charge of my squadron's operations, training, aircrew and safety
divisions. I assisted with the management of multi-million dollar Operational Training and Readiness
budgets while supervising the operations department.
One of the most valuable lessons I learned while logging nearly 3000 flight hours in Navy helicopters and
patrol aircraft was "Sometimes you only get one chance to do things right, otherwise, people can die and:
valuable assets can be lost. I apply this principle to my law enforcement career everyday.
After retiring from the Navy, I owned and operated a daycare center where I supervised 7-employees. I
performed all hiring, payroll, budgeting, training and scheduling duties. Much of my time was spent ensur-
ing the center stayed within the state mandated guidelines of operation.
My law enforcement career began as a 911 dispatcher in both Citrus and Levy counties. After attending'
my first police academy at the Withlacoochee Vo-Tech Center, I was sworn in as a reserve deputy at he
Levy County Sheriff's Office where I served as a road deputy, and was a member of the Dive Team.
I took employment as a city police officer/state certified animal control officer at the Chiefland Police:
Department. One of my collateral duties was to'assist the chief of police with the department operational
budget.
My next assignment was with the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office where I served as a road deputy and i
school resource deputy. I instructed the D.A.R.E. Program at Trenton school and served as the Sheriff's
Office Explorer Post Senior advisor.
In 2000, I attended the 98th Recruit Class at the Florida Highway academy in Tallahassee, Florida. The 6
1/2 month live-in academy provided me with some of the best law enforcement training in he Country.
Upon completion of the Academy, I was assigned to the Cross City District where I patrolled 5 counties as
a road trooper. In 2005, I transferred to the Florida Highway Patrol Drug Interdiction Team as a Felony,
Officer where I patrol 9 counties and fight the war on drugs. I am currently on a leave of absence from the
F.H.P. to participate in this election.
Having worked for three Sheriff's Offices, a City Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol, I
have personally experienced the different levels of professionalism within each agency. I have learned what
works and what does not work. My plan is to combine the best initiatives from each agency into efficient
Standard Operation Procedures for the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.
Throughout my 30 years service to my country and state, I have strived to better myself by becoming a
subject matter expert in my chosen fields of employment. I have given my employers at.110% effort in all
the jobs I've performed. Helping people and my love for law enforcement motivates me to do my job well.
I look forward to putting on a uniform and going to work each and every day.
When elected, I will apply my many years of military and law enforcement experience to the Gilchrist
Count Sheriffs Office. I believe our next sheriff should assume the office with fresh ideas, an opened mind
for change and a strong desire to get the job done.
An experienced sheriff who is a motivated, innovative thinker will develop growth, promote. training and
will maintain a high level of professionalism and readiness within the sheriff's office.

I ask you for your vote on-August 26.

I

To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
My name is D. Deen Lancaster. I am seeking the position of
County Commissioner, District 5. I was raised in Gilchrist County
and have lived here most of my life. My parents, grand-parents,
and great-grandparents are all from Gilchrist County.
I grew up on a farm and attended school in Trenton. I graduated .
in 1987 as the class Valedictorian. From there I had the honor of
attending and graduating from the University of Florida with a
degree in Engineering. After college I worked as an Industrial
Engineer at Mark III Industries Van Conversions in Ocala. After
the decline of the van conversion industry, I had to make a decision
about my future. I chose to make a career change that would allow me to move back to
Gilchrist County. My desire to come back home to live and eventually raise a family of my
own, outweighed the alternative of moving to a large city. My love of Gilchrist County and
the quality of life it offers was more important, especially for the future of my family.
My new career choice was real estate. I studied to become a real estate broker and
,appraiser. I have worked from the ground floor as a salesman to the current position of
president of my own real estate company. I have also obtained the licensing of State
Certified Residential Real Estate Appraiser.
Operating my own business has forced me to budget. Everyday I have to weigh financial
decisions. My employees and my family count on me to make the best decisions I can. Our
livelihoods depend on it. I believe several cliches summarize good business practices and
have helped me to be successful.

You get back what you put into something.
What goes around Comes around.
Treat people the way you would want to be treated.

I believe we need to focus on the future while maintaining our past character. Your
family's and my family's way of life depends on the future actions'and policies of the
County Commission.

VOTE FOR POSITIVE CHANGE on August 26.


ELECT D. DEEN LANCASTER

COUNTY COMMISSIONER DISTRICT 5

Over the last few months I have been asked and have read in several political ads about the increase
'in crime in Gilchrist County. As a citizen, this concerned me. As the Captain of the Sheriffs Office,
I knew that our call load had increased, but I had not observed a dramatic increase in our crime statis-
tics. Upon review of the Uniform Crime Reporting stats compiled by The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, I found that our crime rate has not increased, but that it had decreased as previously
reported. As you can see, our overall crime rate has gone down even though our population has
increased. Statistically, it did appear that we had a large increase in violent crime, however this
increase was due to one additional forcible sex offense and 15 additional aggravated assault cases for
the year. As you can see; this area was our only increase, and it brought our stats upto 222.1 compared
to the states at 705.5. Burglaries were down, thefts were down and arrests were up. The crime rate for
Gilchrist County last year was 1280.3 The State of Florida average is 4694.7. I am proud that
Gilchrist County had a 23.1% reduction in crime. I know these numbers can be confusing, but when
compared with the state, as a whole, ours are decisively better.
These crime stats do not address traffic safety; however, it should be noted that the Gilchrist County
Sheriffs Office recently earned third place in the nation for its traffic safety efforts. The Sheriffs
Office does not have a special traffic unit. These duties are handled by the patrol deputies in between
calls for service and serving papers. I would like to commend the hard working men and women of
the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office for their commitment and dedication to service, safety, and
security of our great county.
We always strive to do better and try to do the best we can with the resources available. I ask for
your continued support as I continue to pursue my passion of serving Gilchrist County.

A SPECIAL THANK YOU!

I would like to say "Thank You" to everyone that came out to my BBQ
last Friday night at the American Legion Hall.
It was a wonderful get-together and for everyone who came, I hope.
you had a good time. I am deeply honored by the support I have been
receiving for my campaign for Gilchrist County Sheriff.

I especially want to thank my wife, Cindy, my family and my close
friends who worked together to make this special evening possible.
This event could not have come together without a great deal of effort
and I just want to say how much I appreciate all the hard work.

Now, more than ever, I'm even more excited about the upcoming
election on August 26th. I ask for your vote and I appreciate
your support!

Wall Street reminds me a little of
the weather here in Florida, volatile.
It is either dry as a bone or you are
engulfed in water. Although I can
probably predict the financial markets
with the same degree of accuracy as I
can the weather, I believe the markets
will remain unusually volatile, with
the emphasis being on a downside
bias throughout the remainder of this
calendar year.
Now, before'you sigh in resigna-
tion, consider some comments made
by Warren Buffett at the annual Berk-
shire Hathaway shareholders meeting
last May. He said, "If a stock I own
goes down 50 percent,. I would look
forward to it. In fact, I would offer
you a significant sum of money if you
could give me the opportunity for all
of my stocks to go down 50 percent
over the next month."
The point being that when the
shares of quality companies go on
sale you don't cry, you go shopping.
It does not matter whether you al-
ready own the stock or not. Quality
is quality and a sale price is always
temporary.
Yes, many readers have voiced
concern over the performance of the
equity indexes. However, you will
notice that I did not say anything
about buying index funds or mutual
funds or any of a host of other more
exotic instruments. We are talking
about investing in vanilla stocks of
specific companies whose returns
you believe will outperform the gen-
eral market and still meet your risk
requirements.
And I did not say anything about
investing in companies that some
parasitic investment letter or TV per-
former or commission sales person
says you have to buy now. Believe
me if they really knew what stocks to
buy and when, they would be buying
them and not living off subscriptions,
advertisers and commissions.
There is nothing wrong with read-
ing about or listening to investment
ideas, especially when you are not
paying for the privilege. It is when
you act on those ideas without do-

ing your own due diligence that tax
losses occur. There is no promise
of a rose garden on Wall Street. Act
imprudently and the market will re-
semble one of Florida's renowned al-
ligators...and you a hot lunch.
Unfortunately, in an effort to coun-
teract the ills of today's economy,
investors are chasing after phantom
opportunities in a relentless search
for profits beyond the norm. This is
especially true as they try to tap intQ
the rising oil and energy markets.
While investing in the energy sec-
tor is an excellent strategy, never
neglect the requirement for a stable
history of positive earnings and cash
flow growth. Consider, for example,
Transocean (RIG), a company I dis-
cussed here a year ago and whose
share price is up 30 percent since
then.
Transocean is the world's largest
offshore drilling contractor and the
leading provider of drilling manage-
ment services. The company's fleet
of rigs is considered one of the most
modem and versatile in the world due
to its emphasis on the technically de-
manding offshore drilling business.
Yet, as I said last year, there is also
a strong warning label accompanying
this selection..Due to the nature of the
business, profits in offshore oil drill-
ing are volatile and that volatility can
quickly spill over into a company's
share price. Therefore, do not allow
yourself to become blinded simply
by share price performance.
However, the shares also have a
strong intrinsic value. Using a dis-
counted earnings approach, with a
15 percent discount rate and anr 11
percent earnings growth rate, yields
an intrinsic value of $203. The more
conservative free cash flow to the
firm approach produces a value of
$202. The shares recently traded at
$141.83.
Transocean plans to release earn-
ings on Aug. 6 and a reaction from
Wall Street is practically guaranteed.
I just cannot tell you at the moment
which way things are going to go.
For the record, my earnings estimate
for the second quarter is $3.00 per
share and $12.83 per share for the
year with a 12-month target on the
shares of $163.

Football coach speaks of excellence

on the field and in the classroom


By Carrie A. Mizell
Teaching football players to excel
in the classroom, while establishing
leadership qualities are just two goals
Trenton High School's new football
coach has set before the fighting Ti-
gers for the upcoming season.
Coach Chris Baker told Trenton
Rotarians on Monday that his philos-
ophy is if a player is going to screw
up in the classroom then inevitably
he will embarrass his teammates on
the field. Baker said he plans to keep
each players' grades posted in the
.locker room so they can be account-
able not only to their coach, but also


to each other.
A Kentucky native, who's last
coaching job was as an assistant at
Newberry High School, Baker said
Trenton caught his eye a while back
and he had just been waiting for the
opportunity to be head coach of the
Tigers.
"I just wanted to be here!" Baker
said. "There is a lot of tradition and
pride here and we're going to be a
part of the community."
Baker told Rotarians there are sev-
eral advantages to coaching at Tren-
ton, primarily that the school is a
middle-high school therefore football

players can enter the program in sixth
grade and by the time the players are
juniors and seniors they can not only
run plays, but also suggest key plays
during, a game.
According to Baker, the communi-
ty's pride in the Tigers is clearly evi-
dent. He pointed out a recent touch
football game played against New-
berry in which 30 to 40 Trenton fans
came out to watch.
"We're going to play hard, give it
all we have this season and be sur-
prising at times," Baker said.
The head coach's passion for the
game does not include showboating
on the field by his players. Baker said
he has made it clear to the players
that there will be no unsportsman-
like conduct calls against the Tigers
this season, saying he would lose a
ballgame before letting any players
embarrass the team.
While Trenton is in a very compet-
itive district, Baker said he feels the
Tigers will win in 2007-08. He hopes
the community will make plans every
Friday night this fall to be at the Jun-
gle to smell the hamburgers cooking
on the grill at the concession stand,
visit with family and friends and feel
the adrinellon in the air.
The Trenton Tigers will play iii a
kickoff classic at Dixie County on
Friday, Aug. 29 at Dixie County.


Incumbents face challenges for

state representative seats


By Carrie A. Mizell
Come November 4, Gilchrist
County voters will have the opportu-
nity to vote on state representatives
for district 6 and 11 since incumbents
Cliff Steams and Debbie Boyd are
both facing challengers.
Since 1989 Congressman Cliff
Stears has represented District 6,
which is comprised ofAlachua, Brad-
ford, Clay, Duval, Gilchrist, Lake,
Levy and Marion counties. Having
served in the Air Force during the
Vietnam War, Steams is an advocate
for increasing funding for Veteran's
Affairs.
A republican, Steams is currently
leading an effort to give Florida per-
manent control over its offshore re-
sources after current moratoria on
offshore drilling expire.
"I believe that Congress should
open the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge to environmentally sensitive
production, increase offshore drill-
ing at least 125 miles from the coast,
reduce bureaucratic barriers to build
more nuclear power plants and allow
more refineries to be built," Steams
said.
Steams re-election bid will be
challenged by Democrat Tim Cunha.
A New Jersey native, Cunha's back-
ground is in law though he has worked
in biological research over the last
nine years. When it comes to issues
facing the 6th District and America,.
Cunha believes that American troops
should wvithdraw from Iraq. Cunha
also feels that by utilizing renewable,
sustainable, ecologically-sound re-
sources, Americans should be totally
independent of all foreign energy
sources as soon as possible, certainly
no later than the year 2020. If elected,
he would push to make the University
of Florida a leading research center
for the development of solar energy.
Cunha also opposes drilling off
Florida's coast saying, "If you are
a congressman from Florida, you


Cliff Stearns Tim Cunha


Debbie Boyd
should do everything to protect our
beaches, bays, fisheries and coastline
from oil spills that would devastate
our environment and decimate the
tourism and related industries that are
so vital to our economy and state tax
revenue."
Elected to the House of Represen-
tatives in 2006, Democrat Debbie
Boyd of Newberry will seek re-elec-
tion to her District 11 seat in 2008.
Currently, Boyd serves on the Com-
mittee on Agribusiness, Committee


on Military and Veterans' Affairs and
the Environment and Natural Re-
sources Council. With a background
in real estate, Boyd served on the
Newberry City Commission prior to
being elected state representative.
Former Columbia County Com-
missioner Elizabeth Porter will chal-
lenge Boyd for the District 11 seat,
which is comprised of Suwannee,
Lafayette and Gilchrist Counties as
well as portions of Alachua and Co-
lumbia Counties.


In other General Election news:
Gilchrist County Sipervisor of Elections Connie Sanchez said last week that detailed information on each
amendment that will appear on the General Election ballot in November will not be available until September.

Amid Saturday's mid morning showers over 100 area youth completed the last of a three day
football and cheerleading camp held at McArthur Park. Boys ages 7-12 participated in a variety
of training for conditioning and skills while girls ages 5-12 learned new cheers and a dance.
These boys and girls will be SVL football players and cheerleaders this fall playing teams from
Chiefland, Cross City and Branford. Come get a glimpse of Gilchrist County's future athletic
stars at one of their two home games. The season opener will be September 6th at Bell High
School and SVL will be hosting this year's championship games on October 25th at Trenton
High School.

Camp organizers Bryant Frye, Shannon Smith and Lela Elmore credit the success of the 2008football
and cheerleading camps to the generosity of the camp sponsors, volunteer efforts of the football and
cheerleading coaches, and the excitement and positive participation of the boys and girls.

Regional well field
agreed upon by
Trenton officials
(Continued from page 1)
lowed to hook onto the Levy County
well field until phase 3 of the project
which would in fact be many years
from now. Also the City would have
to find funding to lay a very expen-
sive water pipe line from the sight to
Trenton. Superintendent Buddy Vick-
ers said on Tuesday that the regional
well field will hopefully be able to
serve the future campus for Lake
City Community College. He went
on to report that the school district,
Lake City Community College and
the Philpot family were still work-
ing together to make the new col-
lege campus a reality for tri-county
area students and adults. He said the
county regional well field will help in
the development of this campus.
