Early vot


underway
By Carrie A. Mizell
Early voting got underway in Gil-
christ County on Monday with 36 of
the county's 10,455 registered voters
casting a ballot for the upcoming pri-
mary election.
According to Connie Sanchez, Gil-
christ County supervisor of elections,
early voting can be done Monday
through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. in the Elections Office up until
Saturday, Aug. 23.
Advantages to early voting prior to
the Tuesday, Aug. 26 primary elec-
tion include avoiding long lines at
one's assigned polling place and vot-


ing gets



y &
ing at one's own convenience, San-
chez explained.
Along with early voting, Gilchrist
County's registered voters are also
given the option of casting an ab-
sentee ballot. Registered voters who
would like a ballot sent in the mail
must place a request before Friday,
Aug. 22. Voters can stop by the Elec-
tions Office and pick up an absentee
ballot up until the day of the primary
election.
Sanchez and her staff are hoping
that 65 percent of Gilchrist County's
registered voters will cast a ballot in
the primary election.

Suwannee Valley Leagues Inc. is
deeply appreciative of the fund rais-
ing efforts, on its behalf, at the Tren-
ton Rotary Club's first annual Rotary/
Candidates Softball Challenge held
Friday, Aug. 8 at McArthur Park.

very large bipartisan candidate team.
We appreciate all of their participa-
tion!
We would especially like to thank
Charlie Smith, president of Trenton
Rotary Club, for organizing the event
and assuring the evening was a huge
success!
As you know, GCRA/SVL are
all volunteer nonprofit organiza-
tions dedicated to the betterment of


the youth of Gilchrist County.. Our
organizations absolutely could not
provide for our youth without the
commitment we receive from a wide
variety of sources within Gilchrist
County. It is very gratifying to wit-
ness the continued support we have
received over time from those such
as our park's namesake Mr. Sandy
McArthur, our Gilchrist County
Commissioners/County Adminis-
trator, our Gilchrist County School
Superintendent/School .Board, Lan-
caster C.I., our churches, civic orga-
nizations, businesses, individuals and
volunteers.
Thank you so much, Trenton Ro-
tary Club, for your commitment to
such a wonderful cause the youth of
Gilchrist County!

Troy Johnson, Tim Alexander, Gary
Pinner and Gene Faircloth as direc-

Loran Brookins commended Smith
on the good job he has done working
with the record keeping of the fair.
Mark Bishop has also resigned from
the fair board after serving on the fair
board for many years as president.
The two new board members from
Gilchrist County are Hugh Thomas
and Randy Roberts. Also still serving

ing Loran Brookins of Chiefland

board. Brad Etheridge of Williston
was elected vice president and Hugh
Thomas of Bell was elected the sec-
tary-treasurer.
Those wishing to vote in this year's
annual meeting were asked to pay
a $5.00 membership fee. The funds
raised from the membership fees will
go toward the building fund for the
fair grounds.
The schedule for the mandatory/
general meetings for the 2009 fair
will begin in Gilchrist County with
a Saturday, August 23, 2008 meeting
date. This meeting will be held at the
FFA Alumni Rodeo Arena which is
located between Trenton and Bell on

culture Building.

ing will be held on Saturday, Sep-
tember 13, 2008 at the Old Town
School Board Meeting Room at 9
a.m.
The fair board has scheduled the
make-up meeting for Monday, Sep-
tember 29, at 6:30 p.m. at the fair-
grounds in Fanning Springs.

ules and information vital to partici-
pation in the fair at these meetings.

play for Dodge City Conquistadors


By Brandon McElroy
After three consecutive years of
1,000 yards rushing for the Trenton
Tigers, Brandon Mathis trades in his


Brandon Mathis
orange and black for the purple and
yellow of the Dodge City Conquis-
tadors. The star running back left for
Kansas on Sunday full of excitement
arid anticipation.
Brandon Mathis, life-long resident
of Trenton, leaves the state to further
his football and academic career.


In addition to playing football,
Brandon will run track for Dodge
City. Brandon was an all-state track
runner reaching state three times in
the long jump and the triple jump and
two years in the 4x1.
Brandon will be sorely missed in
Trenton while he furthers his academ-
ic and athletic career. Even though he
though he now wears purple and yel-
low, he will always have Tiger Pride
remembering his roots and where he
got his start.
Best wishes to Brandon in his en-
deavors. His family is very proud of
him and will miss him dearly.

This week: Candidates for County Commission, Dist. 5 / Next week: Candidates for School Board, Dist. 2


Name: D. Deen Lancaster
Seeking office as: Democrat
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? Gilchrist County is my home. I
believe it is a great place to live, work
and raise a family. I want to make a
positive difference and give the cur-
rent residents a choice for construc-
tive change in the future of Gilchrist
County while keeping the same char-
acter and atmosphere I remember
growing up.
Past leadership/political expe-
rience: I do not have any political
experience. However, I have gained
valuable leadership experience in
running and managing my own busi-
ness. I was educated at the Universi-
ty of Florida and have a background
in accounting and economics along
with work experience in real estate
and appraising.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? I am a self-employed tax
paying businessman with deep roots
in Gilchrist County. I know the ef-
fects that government can have on in-
dividuals and businesses. I consider
myself a conservative who thinks
less government is better. I believe
in being financially stringent with
spending. Ultimately, I will remem-
ber who my boss is the citizens of
Gilchrist County.
In your opinion, what key issue is


the Gilchrist County Commission
currently facing? Providing and
maintaining the existing services to
the people of Gilchrist County, based
on the foreseen reduction of tax rev-
enues, without increasing millage
rates.
What solutions would you offer
to remedy this issue? First, I would
provide overall better management of
the tax dollars. Second, I would take
a tough approach on unnecessary cap-
ital projects and programs. Finally, I
will try to attract new businesses and
industries. We have several places
in the county already zoned for com-
mercial and industrial business. Not
only will these entities provide tax
base, but they will also provide jobs.
I feel the enterprises need to be green
and fit-in with our rural character.
We cannot continue to depend solely
on our current residential and small
"mom and pop" businesses to pro-
vide the revenue necessary to move
forward in the future.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a county commis-
sioner? I will work to comprehend
the budget and make sure the mon-
ey is being spent wisely. I will try
to stop the spending on new capital
projects until we know how they will
be affected by the current reductions
in revenues.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should the county do to deal
with growth? Growth in Florida
is inevitable. I believe we need to
manage it properly. I believe growth
should be self-supporting. The de-
velopers need to provide and pay for
all of the. necessary infrastructure.
The current residents should not be
financially responsible for the impact
of this growth now or in the future.
I also believe growth should be con-
centrated around the existing munici-
palities as these areas are better suit-
ed to provide the necessary services.
Finally I would like to see a change
in the zoning to allow smaller site
sizes around the municipalities. Not
everyone needs, wants or can afford


larger sites. Our LDR already allows
for site sizes of an acre or less.
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? I would try to align departmen-
tal budgets first. As with any private
business, staff reductions should be
looked at and if needed, I would try
to accomplish this through retirement
and attrition. Hopefully by re-align-
ing budgets the current level of nec-
essary services could be maintained.
I still believe we need to take a hard
look at capital improvements that
may be unnecessary or unaffordable
in tough economic times.
Would you be in favor of anoth-
er water bottling plant opening in
Gilchrist County?
I feel there is not enough informa-
tion on the long-term effects to make
an intelligent decision on this issue.
The potential tax revenue looks great
on paper, but if something happens to
our source of water due to the bot-
tling, no one will want to live here.
It would also create a negative affect
to our tourism and natural recreation-
al attractions such as our springs and
rivers. This is thegreatest natural re-
source we have in Gilchrist County,
so any decisions should not be rushed
into or taken lightly.
How would you work to provide
valuable jobs/activities that would
support the youth of Gilchrist
County? For jobs, I believe it begins
with the Chamber of Commerce and
the current local businesses. I would
work actively with them to try to at-
tract good companies who have green
tract records and are environmentally
friendly. I also believe we need to'
support our local youth with recre-
ational activities including the SVL.
Our youth are our future. My three
kids and wife participate in SVL. As
business owner I have financially
supported many of the youth leagues
and special events.

tion? I care about Gilchrist County

r ement
oiling in
the facts


Coalition, Suwannee River Partner-
ship, Suwannee River Resource Con-
servation and Development Council.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? I. enjoy working for the
people of Gilchrist County, but I will
not put myself above another man or
woman.
In your opinion, what key issue
is the Gilchrist County Commis-
sion currently facing? Growth and
lack of revenue to provide adequate
services to the citizens.
What solution would you offer
to remedy this issue? Work year to
year with budgets and staff to spend
money wisely and to look closely at
growth and its effects.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a county commis-
sioner? To keep on serving the peo-
ple the way I have for the last four
years and hope I have made a differ-
ence.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should the county do to deal
with growth? Slow down and evalu-
ate what's on the books and study to
see what effects they will have on
county and county schools and natu-


ral resources.
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? Reduce the level of services
(No). Realign departmental budgets
(Yes). Reduce staff (Last resort). I
know what it's like to not have a job.
Would you be in favor of anoth-
er water bottling plant opening in
Gilchrist County? I'm not allowed
to answer until I have more informa-
tion.
How would you work to provide
valuable jobs/activities that would
support the youth of Gilchrist
County? I have always supported
our youth. I support S.V.L., 4-H,
FFA, Bell Health Academy, Suwan-
nee River Fair and all school sports
and activities. We have summer
workers at Hart Springs. Insurance
and liability restricts us a lot on un-
derage workers. Lake City Commu-
nity College and St. Leo. coming to
the area should draw more business
and opportunities to our youth.

ELECT


TONY


SSHERIFF

Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County,
On August 26th you will go to the polls to vote for the person you feel is best qualified to represent
your party, as candidate for the Gilchrist County Sheriff. It has been my honor and privilege to have
had the opportunity to speak to many of you over the last several months. I hold the office of Sheriff
in high regard and will not simply tell you what you want to hear in order to get your vote. During
my time that I have been out meeting with the residents of Gilchrist County, I have been asked
several questions that have good merit to them but are not as simple to follow due to state mandates,
sentencing guidelines or lack of manpower.

Utilization of Inmate Labor
In order to have inmate work crews, the inmates) must be sentenced by a judge and meet the
custody guidelines. All sentenced inmates are not eligible due to the degree of their crime and
duration of their sentence. Traditionally we have not been able to have inmates eligible to work
or enough eligible to support a crew. The minimum custody status inmates are utilized at the jail
to do laundry,.clean, paint and maintain the grounds in order to reduce the cost of an additional
employee.


Zoning Deputies
Zoning deputies for patrol would be ideal, but due to financial restraints, we would need more
staff to support this. At this time we try to cover the county equally as the Sheriff's Office is
responsible for everything.that occurs in the 344 square mile radius. We assign calls as they come
in, and if we are overloaded with calls, they are prioritized. With current staff, if we implement
zoning, you the citizen would potentially see a delay in response time, due to the deputy assigned
in your zone being tied up with another call for service.

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office continues to show a drop in crime rate. As your Captain of
the Sheriff's office Patrol Division, I take Pride in this accomplishment. You can rest at night know-
ing that dedicated men and women are patrolling your streets. Will we catch every person that
chooses to break the law? No, but I will never stop trying to make Gilchrist County a safer place to
live, play and raise our families.
I would appreciate your vote on August 26th.
Thank you for your consideration,

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The Trenton City Commission
met on Monday, August 4 in their
first regular meeting of the month.
I was attending the meeting to hear
the proposal Gilchrist County and the
Gilchrist School District would be
making to the Commission involving
a proposed regional well field north-
east of Bell.
I was pleased to hear that the four
city commissioners attending the
meeting were in favor of supporting
the Gilchrist County Regional well
field and will pursue those possibili-
ties for the City of Trenton. It appears
that the City of Trenton is in sincere
need of an additional potable water
source for the municipality.
In other interesting discussions,
the Commission and their attorney
and city manager were involved in,
it seems the counsel is considering
reducing some portions of their ser-
vice expenditures in order to increase
road paving and road improvements.
The Commission also discussed the
possibility of trying to increase their
proposed reserves for the 2008-09
budget.
The Commission asked City Man-
ager Jered Ottenwess to produce
a draft survey that would provide
information for the board to use in
'making decisions involving their
proposed 2008-09 budget. The City
of Trenton has mailed a flyer of the


survey to each water meter custom-
er in hopes the customer will take a
minute to complete and return it back
to the City Hall as soon as possible.
The flyer explains that participation
is important and appreciated by the
City of Trenton.
The draft survey appears to be
identifying the services that are fund-
ed by the General Fund. These ser-
vices are Code Enforcement, Animal
Control, Fire Protection and Police
Protection.
For me, identifying what services
are most important is a no brainer.
First and foremost, I live in Gilchrist
County and not in the City of Tren-
ton. I would much rather have fire
protection, code enforcement and
law enforcement, and if the residents
want to pay for animal control, then it
too could be a necessary service.
I do feel the City of Trenton needs
to take care of the infrastructure, but
they must prioritize what level of
these services they want to' be able
to affordably provide and also add to
their street paving and maintenance
as well as their reserves.
The City Commissioners are elect-
ed to represent the property owners
and residents in the municipality.
When times are tough, you reduce
your spending, keep expenditures to
a minimum and make the necessary
improvements that you can afford.


Letters to the Editor


Service Above Self
The Rotary International motto is
"Service Above Self," and I was in-
spired to write my first ever letter to
the editor after taking part in a com-
munity event last Friday evening that
reminded me of what a great fit those
three words are for our entire com-
munity here in Gilchrist County as
well.
Long story short on Friday eve-.
ning, 8/8/08, the Trenton Rotary
Club organized a fund raising event
to benefit Suwannee Valley Leagues
called Political Softball Gilchrist
Style, the fundraiser pitted a soft-
ball team of Rotarians against a team
consisting of all of the political can-
didates in Gilchrist County (the event
did draw a state representative from
Lake City). All of the candidates,
even those that were unopposed, paid
to play together as a team had a great


time doing it and again showed why
Gilchrist Style is so special. The
cooperation, teamwork and spirit df
serving a wonderful local community
organization shined through as ev-
erybody on both teams had fun enter-
taining the crowd of 250 or so. -
"Service Above Self," what a great
motto for Rotary and what a great
adage for our local political leaders
to keep in mind as they go through
the campaigns and afterwards. From
what I saw Friday evening in Gilchrist
County our pool of candidates under-
stand service
Please continue to support Suwan-
nee Valley Leagues; their programs
really do make a huge positive differ-
ence for our kids and Oh yea!! Final
score Rotary 10, Politicians 5.

The Lamb's Book of Life
(Kent Heaton)


The names we bear identify who we are. When
someone says our name, an image of who we are appears
in the mind, and-all of our characteristics known to that
person are seen. One of greatest blessings of being a child
of God is to know that our names are written in heaven.
When the seventy returned to Jesus following their
exhaustive work in preaching the good news of the Savior,
they were filled with joy because "even the demons are
subject to us in Your name" (Luke 10:17). Jesus
commends them for the excellent work they did in the face
of Satan and how powerful the gospel worked in the lives
of those the seventy taught. Then Jesus said,
"Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are
subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are
written in heaven" (Luke 10:20).
What a magnificent thought to consider on the pages of
Jehovah's eternal record of this world, our names are
inscribed. The name given to us by our parents represent
our life and who we become. In death, we engrave our
names on marble monuments to stand as a testimony of
the days of our lives. In all of this, nothing gains a higher
place than the thought our names are written in heaven.
Paul rejoices with the saints at Philippi when he writes:
"And I entreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those
women which labored with me in the gospel, with
Clement also, and with other my fellow laborers, whose
names are in the book of life" (Philippians 4:3). The
book of life is that place in the mind of God that He
ascribes eternal life and redemption.
Only Jehovah possesses the book and adds names to its
pages. Luke wrote that the Lord added those who were
being saved (Acts 2:47). The Holy Spirit bears witness
before the Father those whose names should be placed in
the book of life (Romans 8:16,17). John writes about the
book of life in the Revelation. He shows the declaration of

Jesus of those who would be "clothed in white raiment;
and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life"
(Revelation 3:5). He refers to those who "are not written
in the book of life" in Revelation 13:8; 17:8 and 20:15.
Those not written in the book of life were cast into the lake
of fire.
On two occasions, John refers to the book of life as the
Lamb's book of life (Revelation 13:8; 21:27). The book of
life is possible because of the Lamb (Revelation 5). How
fitting to understand the book of life as the Lamb's book.
"In whom we have redemption through his blood, the
forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace"
(Ephesians 1:7). Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and
the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me"
(John 14:6). Life is in Jesus Christ (2 Timothy 1:1). The
proofs of His life and work are evidence for us to believe
and to find eternal life in Him (John 20:30,31). The book
of life is the Lamb's book because eternal life can only be
found in Jesus Christ.
The Lamb's book of life is the place where all spiritual
blessings are found (Ephesians 1:3). To enjoy these
blessings and to have your name engraved upon its pages,
you must be in Christ Jesus. There is no condemnation
when we are in Christ because we are made alive in Christ
(Romans 8:1; 1 Corinthians 15:22). The new creation is in
Christ as we are all sons of God in Christ (2 Corinthians
5:17; Galatians 3:26). The Lamb's book of life is filled
with the names of all those who are "sons of God, through
faith, in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were
baptized into Christ did put on Christ" (Galatians
3:26,27). Not everyone will be saved as not everyone will
have his or her name in the book of life (Matthew
7:21-23). The only way a name is placed in the Lamb's
book of life is when one obeys the gospel of Jesus Christ.
What a wonderful book!

Youth Fair. My concern is the community of Gilchrist County. I look to you for help in
making the Gilchrist County Tax Collector's office a place you can depend on for your

Af M Commissioner District 3
My.name is Barrett Brown, businessman, father, husband and Gilchrist County
native; I'm running for office of County Commissioner District 3.
Everyone has been affected in some way by the current state of our economy.
It doesn't matter if you own your own business, work for someone else or teach
school; cutbacks; layoffs and high fuel prices have hit everyone. I'm 30 years
'old; I owned my own business; I have had to make sound business decisions
everyday, decisions that effect the NOW and FUTURE.
Two things to expect from me as County Commissioner;
First,
1. If clean industry decides to come to this county, industry that will increase
our tax base and create new and higher paying jobs, I'll be the one out there
rolling out the red carpet.
However I will not support something that will cost the county money, like
putting an industrial unit down one of our county dirt roads, then we would
have to spend county money to pave the dirt road. Instead put the industrial
unit on a state road and let the state keep the road maintained. The point I'm
trying to make with this crude example is simply this, I will make sound
decisions that affect this county and your family..
Second is this,
2. If the county has $100.00, I WILL NOT vote to spend $125.
Vote for Barrett Brown on August 26, ThankYou.

During my recent travels throughout our county, I
have spoken with many residents and teachers. Some
of their concerns are
1) Getting back to teaching basics in the lower
elementary school for math and reading.
2) Placing more emphasis on vocational programs.
3) Budgeting by trimming the fat in our system and
not cutting teachers.
4) Having fewer meetings that take teachers out of
the classroom, as suggested by teachers.

Kenrick D. Thomas
County Commissioner, District 5
Proudly and Faithfully serving the citizens
of Gilchrist County for the last 4 years.
"Because I Care."
First, I would like to thank the Republican Party for letting me attend its meet-
ing and allowing me to speak. I was treated with respect and made to feel wel-
comed.
Second, I would like to thank the Suwannee Valley League and the Rotary
Club for having the candidates over for an evening of good fellowship. I had a
good time even though we lost the ball game.
Third, I would like to thank the FFA Alumni for the political speaking last
Saturday.
Early voting started this week, and I encourage everyone to vote. You are the
ones that have control of the future of Gilchrist County. All the candidates
deserve your consideration. I ask the voters to judge us honestly, not by party
affiliation, education, kin folks, or if we were born and raised here. Judge a man
or woman by what's in his or her heart. If their hearts are in the right place and
if they are doing it because they care, Gilchrist County will be in good hands.
Four years ago, I asked the citizen's of Gilchrist County for this job. No one
came and asked me to run. I knew 12 years advance that I would run when the
seat came open. I thought Mr. Bush was a good commissioner. A lot of people
run on someone else's agenda or encouragement. I didn't. I ran because I
thought I could make a difference. I enjoy helping people. I've learned a lot in
the past 4 years and I will continue to get better over the next 4 years if re-
elected. I care about Gilchrist County and its future. I ask the people to put their
trust in me, and I'll keep the promise I made you 4 years ago, never to forget who
I work for.
I've been out seeing people and I'll continue to-be out to see as many people as
I can. If you have a problem with something, call me. I can't help if you don't
ask. Remember I work for you and I enjoy helping people.
Thank you for the privilege of serving you for the last 4 years. I have been truly
blessed. Vote August 26th!
Thank you for your consideration,
Kenrick Thomas

Clarification of Sheriff's Office Substations

As I have previously stated, I plan to establish two
substations in the county. It has never been my intent to
have these',substations manned on a 24/7 basis. The
Sheriff's Office budget would never support such an
endeavor, and I always stay within my budget.

Previously, substation space had been offered but not
utilized.

I have stated that I will divide the county into three zones
S(north, south and east). Deputies will stay in their zones. A
substation will be utilized to fill out reports, handle
miscellaneous paperwork, make telephone calls, and handle
scheduled interviews with citizens. Being able to schedule
an interview at a substation will also cut down on the fuel
'costs and time for citizens in these areas. The substations
will allow quicker response times because deputies will be patrolling their zones, and paperwork
will be handled at the substations instead of the Sheriff's Office. This will cut down on the
never-ending trips to the Sheriff's Office by deputies, fuel costs, and wasted manpower hours.

Please contact me at 352-538-5823 if you have any questions. Please visit my website for more
information about my platform. www.BillySmithforSheriff.com

While the forecast for this past
Saturday was for stormy weather,
there was nothing but blue skies and
smooth sailing at the Purple Power-
house Band Yard Sale and Pancake
Breakfast.
Many of the boosters began their
work on Friday night sorting and pre-
paring for the sale. Saturday's work
began at 5 a.m. with the yard sale set
up and food preparation for a 7 a.m.
door opening. The Bell Band Boost-
ers are poised to work some major
fundraisers this year to help their
Band Director, Sara Gover achieve
some of her needs. Saturday's yard
sale and breakfast began that cam-
paign and all indications are we ex-
ceeded our expectations.
The Bell Band has so many indi-
viduals and organizations to be grate-
ful for, but first and foremost are the
residents of Gilchrist County and
especially our own Bell Community.
When we have asked, you have given
and we appreciate your support.
Despite a long week of pre season
marching camp, we had some of the
band students there donating their
time, Josh Ash, Tony Ash, Lacey Ash,
Nikki Bolender, Alyssa Branning,
Cody Broderick, Kristen Burke, Curt
Crawford, Erica Dahlgren, Natasha
Dahlgren, Megan Everts, Jady Gray,
Timothy Griffith, Cody Hart, Trevor
Mikell, Thomas Peace, Audrey Phil-
man, Braxton Railey, Britt Railey,
Craig Rivera, Samantha Ryan, Torie
Ryan, Sarah Saffell, Alexis Spoehr,


Kristen'Williams and Kati Thomas.
Last, but certainly not least, our
outstanding band parents, Edward
Ash, Jessica Ash, Irene Bolender,
Dermot Burke, Elaine Lagasse, Jean
Ann Cannon, Gloria Friar, Connie
Jordan,, Raymond Jordan, Eliza-
beth Diamond, Dena Griffith, James
Griffith, Jill Hart, Rob Hart, Joy Rai-
ley, Yvonne Nobs, Cinnamon McP-
hearson, Kevin McPhearson, former
band parent Lisa Boutwell, volun-
teers Mike Dispardo, Brooke Hill-
iard, Tabitha Pabone, Lauren Ryan
and of course our favorite Band Di-
rector Ms. G.
My memorable moments of the
day were seeing Craig Rivera and
Jady Gray modeling aprons, and shy
Kristen Burke and Erica Dahlgren
barlkng oit the great bargains the last
two hours of the sale.

Gilchrist County Commissioner District 3
Facts vs. Street-talk
Street-Talk: Our County had a 1.4M Grant for the EMS Pacility, yet current commissioners voted to
spend 1.8M on that facility. The current Commission does not spend within their means.
Fact #1: The new facility North of Bell is a Public Safety Complex that will house the Emergency
Operations Center, the Emergency Medical Personnel (including EMS Crews, Billing Offices, and EMS
Director), the Volunteer Fire Department for that area, and it will also be the Training Center for Fire-
fighters and EMS Personnel and all Emergency Operations Training. It will also house the Emergency
Management Offices.
Fact #2: The Board of County Commissioners approved a budget with a guaranteed maximum price of
$1,635,635 with the only change orders that have been approved of $6,055.
Fact #3: The Board of County Commissioners established a budget and a guaranteed maximum price
to build a new EMS Facility outside the City of Trenton for $226,655.
Fact #4: In the budget process for the current 2007-2008 Budget, the Board of County Commissioners
voted 5-0 to approve a reduction in the millage rate charged to taxpayers from 10 Mills to 8.2695. We
also instructed our Board Departments and constitutional officers to keep their budget increases to a bare
minimum (which they did). Even though our General Fund revenue was less than the previous year, we
still lowered the millage rate. We did not reach into the Taxpayer's wallet for more tax dollars!
Fact: As your current County Commissioner for District 3, I have always proudly represented all areas
of the county, and my voting record will show this fact.
Fact: Those citizens'who have actually attended a Board of County Commissioners. meeting; or any
othermeeting.ohat.I hp een a part of, know that I only make decisions based on facts and information
ihat I receive from County Staff or from any other reliable source that is available. I do not base my
decision on personal opinions, emotions, or whether or not I may lose or win a vote.
Fact: If you want a County Commissioner who knows the facts about the budget and other issues in
Gilchrist COunty, then vote to re-elect Randy Durden as County Commissioner for District 3 on August
26, 2008.
Call me at (386) 935-3256 or (352) 745-0221 or e-mail at rddurden@windstream.net for the FACTS!

To the Citizens of Gilchrist County: t
The County Government is a business and should be run like
a business. The citizens of Gilchrist County are the customers
and should be treated as customers. As with most businesses
in the private sector, the County is expecting some tough
financial decisions now and in the near future. My education
and business experience have prepared me for this job, and I
can make the tough decisions.
I believe the government needs to be more efficient and '
frugal with the taxpayers' money. Unnecessary spending
needs to be the top priority. I am sure you and your families are cutting back
during these tough times, so why should the government be any different.
Another goal includes attracting clean industries/businesses to provide better
paying jobs without commuting. These industries would also provide much
needed revenue which in turn could lessen the tax burden of the existing taxpayers.
We have the top rated school district in the state. We educate our kids, and then
most have to leave Gilchrist County in order to find decent paying jobs.
I am also an avid supporter of youth activities including the Suwannee Valley
League. These activities not only provide local recreation opportunities but also
help provide positive life skills and structure for our youth. Our youth are our
future.
Even though the candidacy is for District 5, I believe in representing the thoughts
and ideas of the entire County not just my District. No district, area or town is
more important than another. To me North Gilchrist County is just as important
as the Waccasassa Area. Bell is just as important as Trenton. We are all in this
together. My family and I reside in NE Gilchrist County.
Remember, 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.

Town of Bell supports Gilchrist County


in Regional Water Well Field


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council was ad-
dressed by representatives from the
Gilchrist County Commission, the
Gilchrist School District and Lake
City Community College involving a
proposed Gilchrist County Regional
Well Field during their Thursday,
Aug. 7 meeting.
Dr. Jim Surrency, assistant super-
intendent of the Gilchrist School Dis-
trict, thanked the Bell Town Council
for working with the Gilchrist County
School District and Lake City Com-
munity College over the past three
years.
Surrency explained to the Bell
Town Council that a Gilchrist County
Committee is now working to iden-
tify and provide infrastructure for the
Lake City Community College Gil-
christ Campus.
He explained that Commissioner
Randy Durden has been involved in
the committee, and he would address
some of the points to the council.
Durden said that the Philpot prop-
erty is a great site for the community
college, but the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District indicated
the site was not good for a regional
well field.
Gilchrist County has continued to
look around the Bell area to identify a
possible site for the well field.


The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District indicated to the
committee that an 80-acre parcel
northeast of Bell adjoining a par-
cel owned by Gary Taylor would be
a good location for a regional well
field.
Durden explained to the Bell
Council that Suwannee River Water
Management District has already ap-
proved a regional well field in the
district's 16 county region for water
to be pumped and piped into the City
of Gainesville.
"This is a regional well field for the
City of Gainesville that is permitted
to withdraw up to 27 millions gallons
of water a day," Durden explained.
"It is not that Gilchrist County wants
to get into the water business; it has
become a necessity for the county to
identify and preserve enough water
for our future."
Durden asked the Bell Town Coun-
cil to partner with Gilchrist County in
supporting this proposal for the future
of Gilchrist County.
He explained that there is no mon-
ey requested from the Town of Bell,
but in the future the council can assist
the well field proposal with Commu-
nity Development Block Grant appli-
cations for support for a pipe line.
"It sounds good to me, I think it
will be good for Bell to work with


Gilchrist County," Councilman Ray
Sanders said.
Councilman Larry Sutton asked
Durden what would be the cost to the
Town of Bell involving the regional
well field.
Durden stated that no actual esti-
mate of the cost has been identified
as this point.
Durden did explain to the town
council that a meeting in south Flor-
ida in October will identify the water
resources in Florida and plan for the
next 10 years involving where water
resources will be used. Durden said
it is important to take action now to
plan for our future.
Councilman Ray Sanders made a
motion for the Town of Bell to part-
ner with Gilchrist County involving
the Regional Well Field northeast of
Bell. Councilman Kenny Bass agreed
and gave a second to the motion.
President Iris Roberts call for a vote
.and the council approved the motion
by a unanimous show of hands.
In other action by the council,
Moon's Steakhouse assistant man-
ager made a request to the council.
Joshua Kent explained to the board
that customers dining in their new
restaurant have asked for a glass of
wine with their meal after 5 p.m.
Monday through Saturday.
He explained that the State of Flor-


ida requires that the restaurant apply-
ing for the license be a minimum of
500 feet from a school or church. He
pointed out that the state licensing of-
fice indicated that if the Town of Bell
Council would approve the request,
the licensing agency would permit a
license for the restaurant.
The Town Council asked the assis-
tant manager how far the restaurant is
from the Bell school property. Kent
explained 170 feet.
Councilman Larry Sutton told the
board that drinking in a restaurant
could get out of hand and this close to
school property could be a problem.
Councilman Hugh Sanders made a
motion to deny the request for beer
and wine to be sold in this restaurant.
Councilman Kenny Bass agreed and
gave a second to the motion. Presi-
dent Roberts called for a vote and the
council approved the motion by a 5-0
show of hands.
The Bell Town Council also ap-
proved a proposed ad valorem mill-
age rate of 2 mills for the Town of
Bell General Fund.
This is the same level of ad valorem
property value that the Town of Bell
approved for their 2007-08 budget.
The Bell Town Council will hold
a final budget meeting in September.
This meeting will be advertised for
the public to attend.
