Commissioners will place .05 cent gas tax on ballot


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
decided in a split decision Monday
evening to place an additional .05
cent gas tax on the Gilchrist County
General Election ballot.
The voters of the county will de-
cide if they want to pay more at the
gasoline pump for more paved roads


within the county.
While in discussion the board
identified an estimated $375,000 of
projected revenue the proposed tax
would generate.
According to CountyAttorney John
McPherson, this tax is only being
proposed for gasoline and not diesel
fuel or other petroleum products.


The discussion identified the pro-
posed gas tax should be place on
the General Election ballot to let the
voting public decide if they want to
pay more for their gas in order to get
more paved roads.
"I think the public will show us that
they don't want to pay more for their
gas just to have more paved roads,"


Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
stated.
Commissioner Randy Durden made
a motion to have the attorney prepare
an ordinance to place the proposed
gas tax on the General Election bal-
lot. Commissioner Sharon Langford
agreed and gave a second to the ac-
tion. Commission Chairman Tommy


Langford called for a vote and the
board approved the action by a 4-1
majority.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
disagreed and voted No.
The board is waiting for McPher-
son to prepare the article and submit
it to the Supervisor of Elections so
that it will be placed on the Novem-


ber 3 General Election ballot.
This referendum would be binding
if it is approved by a majority of the
voting public on the General Election
ballot.
McPherson reported that if the gas
taxis approved by a majority of Gil-
christ County voters it will go into ef-
fect January 2010.


After 37 years, Pittman Ribbon cut at new public safety complex

retires from FDACS.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Contrary to Agriculture Commis-
sioner Charles Bronson's jest that
Roger Pittman turned even Noah and
his ark of animals away at'an agri-
culture inspection station as they at-
tempted to enter Florida, the 37 year
employee of the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices has not quite been around since
biblical days.
A career that has spanned nearly
four decades will end on August 31
as Pittman serves his last day as law
enforcement major within the Office
of Agriculture Law Enforcement.
"I put off DROP as long as I
could..." Pittman said. "Now I'm go-
ing to fish and hunt. I'm not going to
make any decisions for 90 days; then
if retirement doesn't sit well with me
I'll go get a job.".
Pittman's final day will also mark
the closing of his office, which has
been located at the Suwannee Riv-
er Fairgrounds in Fanning Springs
since Herbert Brown Sr. worked as
Road Guard Bureau Chief in January
1961,
According to Pittman, the head-
quarters will be moved to the White
Springs Farmer's Market where
his replacement Tim Rutherford is
based.
"It makes more sense for the of-
fice to be run from White Springs,"


Pittman said. "It is more centrally
located."
Pittman began working for the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services on Sept.
7, 1971, as a marketing specialist
within the Division of Marketing.
He remembers working at the State
Farmers Market in Trenton during
the watermelon harvest each summer
and working as an assistant to the bu-
reau chief.
Having graduated from the Uni-
versity of West Florida, Pittman said
he was met with a draft notice when
he returned home from college and
subsequently served a two- year term
in the Army.
"I began looking for a job when
I got out, and I found this," Pittman
Said. "I really didn't know what I was
going to do. I had interviewed for
three other jobs and got two offers,
but they were all up north, and I knew
I wanted to stay in Florida."
In 1975 Pittman was promoted
within the Road Guard Bureau to
Assistant Bureau Chief where he
worked under Trenton residents
Herbert Brown Sr. and later Forrest
Beach.
"My job hasn't changed much over
the years, but my title has three or
four times," Pittman said. "When I
came here this group (of agriculture

Enrollment numbers


down at area schools
Preliminary numbers indicate that Gilchrist County schools has dropped
the number of students enrolled in this school year.
According to Assistant School Su-
perintendent Dr. Jim Surrency, there
are around 2,700 students enrolled
in Trenton and Bell schools for the
Q-" -T 2008-09 school year. That number
-reveals a decrease in student enroll-
Si ment from the 2007-08 school year
C when nearly 2,800 students were en-
SZ rolled in Gilchrist County schools.
Surrency said the decrease in en-
rollment numbers could relate to is-
sues with the economy. He suggested
that parents who work in Gainesville
S -< or Lake City may be taking their chil-
S-A 0 dren to schools closer to where they
9 work.
According to Surrency, enrollment
numbers are down statewide.
SA smooth opening day was reported
W at all Gilchrist County schools, Sur-
rency said. Though Tropical Storm
Fay threatened Florida at presstime,
Surrency said county schools will re-
main open this week


By Carrie A. Mizell
As Tropical Storm Fay soaked the
Florida Keys on Monday morning,
elected officials and citizens of Gil-
christ County gathered to celebrate
the grand opening of the county's
new multi-functional public safety
complex.
Public Safety Director Carlos Per-
ez welcomed the large crowd of resi-
dents who attended the 10 a.m. cer-
emony prior to County Administrator
Ron McQueen giving an invocation.
Sgt. Major Stroupe led the Pledge of
Allegiance.
Representatives from the Town of
Bell, Gilchrist County Health De-
partment, Gilchrist County School
District, Alachua County Fire Res-
cue, Representative-Debbie Boyd and
representatives from Congressman
Cliff Stears, Senator Bill Nelson
and Senator Mel Martinez's offices
were recognized as guests.
As chairman of the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Board of County Commissioners,
Tommy Langford explained that the
concept of building a "hard complex"
emergency operations center in Gil-
christ County came before the board
in the late 1990s. It was not until
2004-2005 that county officials be-
gan looking for project funding, and
later in 2006 the county received its
first grant of $200,000 for the project.
The following summer two addition-
al grants for $438,149 and $189,846
were awarded to the county for con-
struction of a public safety complex.
In December 2007 construction be-
gan. According to McQueen, the
guaranteed maximum price of the
project is $1,635,635. Of that, at least
$800,000 will be paid with grant
funding and the balance will be paid
by the Gilchrist County Fire/Rescue,
EMS, and Emergency Management
Departments, all of whom will utilize
the facility.
"As of August 18, I can say we


now have 99 percent of the complex
completed," Langford said.
The ,18,000 square foot facility
can reportedly sustain winds of up
to 160 miles per hour, Langford said.
The multi-functional complex fea-
tures three fire bays that will house
two EMS units, a tanker, brush truck,
fire engine and a hazardous materials
clean up room, Gilchrist County Fire
Chief Carlos Perez explained. The
facility will also feature offices for
Director of EMS Linda Walker, Fire
Chief Carlos Perez and Emergency
Management Chief Ron Mills and
their staff.
"I don't think the citizens will see
the benefit of this facility until we
have a major event in Gilchrist Coun-
ty," Langford said. "I hope and pray
we never see it."
According to Langford, county of-
ficials, school district. officials and
sheriff's office officials gathered at
the facility on Sunday to discuss the
possible impact Tropical Storm Fay
will have on Gilchrist County later
this week.
"I would ask the chief and county
administrator to consider doing a trial
run to see if we have any problems,"
Langford.said. "I would rather know
now."
Following the official ribbon cut-
ting by county officials, McQueen
unveiled a plaque on the front of the
building which dedicates it to the
citizens of Gilchrist County, all vol-
unteer firefighters, paramedics and
emergency medical technicians who
keep the county safe.
The building was also dedicated
to the memory of Bishop W. Thomas
and in appreciation to W.C. "PeeWee"
Thomas for their unselfish generosity
in donating the five to six acres the
complex was constructed on.'
Tours of the facility were given on
Monday prior to lunch being served
in the apparatus bay.


Local oak trees being


defoliated by caterpillar


By Greg Marshall
Division of Foresty
If you are driving in the northern
part of Gilchrist County, on CR 340
near the bottling plant or just south
of the bridge on US 129, you would
think there is a disease killing the
Oak trees. However, these trees are
not dead; they are being defoliated by
an Oakleaf Caterpillar. This caterpil-
lar is common throughout eastern
North America. It attacks a wide va-
riety of hardwoods, including all spe-
cies of oaks. Some infestations have
covered millions of acres, retarding
tree growth and reducing vigor. Out-
breaks occur periodically and usually
subside after 2 to 3 years, before seri-
ous tree mortality occurs.
The adult moths emerge from the
soil by early spring, mate and lay
their eggs on the underside of the
leaves. The larvae feed together in
groups on the foliage and once the
larvae mature they enter the soil to
pupate. The second generation will
become present in the fall months.
Signs of infestation are loss of fo-
liage, caterpillars on the trunk and
falling frass (pellet-like caterpillar
excrement) and caterpillars.
"It sounds like and feels like rain
but it is not rain it is frass and cater-
pillars falling on you. The frass will.
make a mess on your decks and pati-


os" Greg Marshall with the Division
of Forestry said.
A word of caution these caterpil-
lars produce formic acid when dis-
turbed and excessive handling may
result in skin irritations fof suscep-
tible people.
Natural predators, parasites, dis-
ease and unfavorable weather usually
keep caterpillar populations at low
levels. Outbreaks that do occur will
subside in 2 to 3 years.

sion of Forestry at (352) 463-3138.

This week: Candidates for School Board, District 2


Name: Bob Clemons
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion? When I originally sought pub-
lic office in 2004 and even now my
motivation is still the same, I thought
I could help. I truly believe my 17
years experience in school finance
along with my wife, Wanda's, 28
years instructional time in the class-
room may be of some assistance to
my local community. I would like to
be able to give something back for
the great privilege of living and rais-
ing my family in Gilchrist County.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: I would have to say my early
training for leadership started in high
school. I played sports, and our FFA
program was especially strong, and I
was on several state winning teams. I
even got a chance to go the National
FFA convention and compete. Af-
ter high school I received the State
Farmer Degree. Owning and manag-
ing Bell Dryer and Feed Mill was a
tremendous training ground. There is
nothing like having to meet a payroll
to help you sharpen your leadership
skills. I served six years in the mili-
tary and that also added to my leader-
ship ability. Learning to take orders
is sometimes more important than
giving them. I have been involved
with various clubs and organizations
as an officer such as Toastmasters
and Gideon's International. Working
in my local church has helped shape
me. I have been actively involved
in children's ministry for over 30
years. Being the director of finance
for the Levy School board has defi-
antly added to my ability to lead. I
was elected to the Gilchrist County
School Board in November 2004 and
presently serve as its chairman. For
the first time in our county's history
our school board received the distinc-
tion of a certified board. A majority
of our members are certified. Only
about 20 percent of the school dis-
tricts in the Florida have been award-
ed this honor.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? We are in the middle
of challenging financial times in our


Bob Clemons


country. Budget concerns affect ev-
erything the school system tries to
accomplish. My strong school fi-
nance background will help us under-
stand the issues before us and allow
me to provide leadership in working
through them.
In your opinion, what key issues
are Gilchrist County Schools cur-
rently facing? In my opinion lack of
funds and staffing have always been
the most critical issues for schools.
They will become even more im-
portant as we learn to operate with
less and less resources. Motivation
is also an important element for our
staff and students.
What solutions would you of-
fer to remedy these issues? My 17
years experience in school finance
and accounting should allow me to
offer some suggestions to help with
our budget woes. Obviously reduc-
ing expenditures is critical, but fund
transfers from the Capital programs
could provide some immediate relief
as well as revenue enhancements that
could be enacted. Long term financ-
ing for capital improvements such
as buses, computers, and buildings
would yield some immediate cash
flow, but I would not recommend we
take on too much debt.
Recruiting and retaining the best
and the brightest to teach our students


is a challenge.
We have a competitive salary
schedule, and our schools are a safe
and friendly environment for any-
one to work. Nothing leads to suc-
cess like success, and we are an "A"
district. Folks want to be a part of a
winning team. We are very proud of
our school system! Gilchrist County
is the first and only Florida school
district to receive all A's in the State
of Florida school grade system. Our
teachers, staff, parents, students, and
community members work together
toward our vision of achieving "world
class" status in public education.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a school board
member? Team work makes the
dream work. I would listen to the
concerns of parents, students and
other stake holders and work with
our superintendent and fellow board
members, and staff to constantly de-
fine and refine the issues that shape
us.
I would work with our legislators
to keep them informed of our issues
and concerns and constantly seek
their support for the Gilchrist school
system.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should school districts offi-
cials do to deal with growth? The
population of our county is going to
grow, and we need to try to guide
growth so that it is manageable and
not so disruptive. For the last couple
of years, I have served on a school
concurrency task force through the
North East Florida Educational Con-
sortium (NEFEC). In 2005 the legis-
lators passed Senate Bill 360 which
requires all school districts to have
a concurrency plan. This is an in-
terlocal agreement for public school
facility planning between the school
district, the county and non-exempt
local municipalities. This plan must
be in place by December 2008 and
approved by the Department of Com-
munity Affairs. Gilchrist Schools'
plan is in the review stages. The de-
velopers will have to demonstrate.
our schools have capacity to absorb
more students or the development
cannot go forward. Tools they will
use are our 5 year plan (plans for
new construction), Florida Inventory
of ,School Houses (,FISH) which list
all of our .buildings :and student sta-
tions and our financial statements. It
is our job to define level of service,
concurrent service area boundaries
and a uniform methodology for de-
termining overcapacity. Proportion-

What prompted you to seek elec-
tion to this office? My interest in the
Gilchrist County public schools. I
have actively supported our schools
since 1972.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: Forestry Supervisor for three
counties for 11 years. Started and
managed an insurance agency which
is still very successful. I served on
Gilchrist County School Board for
16 years.
Why are you the right candidate
for the job? My experience on the
School Board. I have no other job, so
I am available anytime. I have active-
ly supported our schools since 1972.
In your opinion, what key issues
are Gilchrist County schools cur-
rently facing? Tight budget. Sixteen
years budget experience. We have an
excellent finance officer and superin-
tendent with 20 year finance experi-
ence. We need to put great emphasis
on elementary schools and improve
ate share mitigation may be an op-
tion, but it has to be negotiated. We
need to fully understand the impact
of growth before we can explain or
defend our position. A good working
relationship with the other stakehold-
ers is critical.
In your opinion, what new fa-
cilities are most needed in Tren-
ton and Bell Schools? Trenton is in
desperately need of a new cafeteria
and an auditorium with a larger stage
and more seating capacity. Bell has
a number of portables classrooms
which should be replaced with per-
manent buildings.
Do you believe Gilchrist County
students are currently offered ad-
equate vocational programs? De-
fine adequate. We have strong career
and technical (vocational) programs
in our schools. Our agriculture pro-
grams, Health Related Academy,
Criminal Justice, Teacher Cadet Pro-
gram, construction and engineering
classes, drafting, and business tech-
nology courses offer a wide range
of interest that provide a frame of
reference for our students. Each of
these programs is able to compete on
a state level and provide leadership
opportunities for our students. Each
:program is excellent; butiweiarer alr
wJays looking for ways tQ, improve.
For a district our size, I would say
we are more than adequate. For more
information on these programs go to
our website, at www.gilchristschools.

What solutions would you offer
to remedy these issues? I would be
an active member and be prepared at

any cuts in budget.
If elected, what would be your
first priority as a school board


member? Since I have worked with
Mr. Thomas in the past, I would first
get caught up with where we are and
what we need to do to improve our
schools. I would also look closely at
vocational programs.
How do you see growth affect-
ing the county and in your opinion
what should school district officials

think there will be a lot of growth
right away, but we should have a plan
in case there is. We need to get all the

cilities are most needed at Trenton

both schools. Middle/High and El-
ementary.
Do you believe Gilchrist County
students are currently offered ad-
equate vocational programs? No.
We can't be vocational schools, but
we need to prepare students for the

T1T- TJ T n AV


Now arid 7Aet

By Carrie A. Mizell


Donated school supplies covered a portion of the Journal floor.


The flashing yellow light that sig-
nals drivers entering a school zone
to maintain a safe speed undoubtedly
provoked a range of emotions among
Gilchrist County students returning
to school on Monday morning, from
tears of trepidation and a sense of
dread to joyous delight at the start of
another school year.
While attending school at Trenton
Middle-High, I can remember the
night before school started as one
filled with anticipation. I am ashamed
now to admit that I would spend long
minutes deciding which new school
outfit from the JCPenney I would de-
but on that Monday morning. I can
remember worrying if my new hair-
cut would be well received by my
friends, or what if I hadn't chosen the
right color backpack?!
I shudder now just thinking about
all those pre-teen pressures. No doubt
I was not the only girl up late worry-
ing over a pimple, cheerleading try-
outs, or whether or not anyone would
ask me to dance at the .8th grade
dance following the football game on
Friday night.
There was always this one guy
in my class that I would dread see-
ing every August. He smelled kind
of foul and looked as if he never
combed his hair. Teachers cringed at
his blatant disrespect just as I winced
at his off color jokes. What made me
truly dread his presence was the fact
that he would steal pens, pencils or
notebook paper from your backpack
if you weren't keeping an eye out. I
can remember now coming home and
selling my parents what a menace that
poywas!
It was not until some years later,
after he had long disappeared from
TMHS, that I realized the boy was


taking everyone else's things because
he had none of his own. I never saw
him toting a backpack, a lunchbox or
wearing a trendy, name brand polo
shirt like so many of the other guys
in my class.
My heart was heavy with the
knowledge that I never tried to be-
friend the boy I had so quickly
deemed trouble. I never offered part
of my lunch brought from home or
willingly loaned bm a pen.
While I did nothing to help my,
fellow classmate back then, I real-
ize now that it is not too late to aid
Gilchrist County students who do
without school supplies and other
basic necessities we often take for
granted.
That's why I initiated a Back to
School-Supply Drive last month. A
box was setup inside the Gilchrist
County Journal and readers were
asked to bring in supplies like back-
packs, crayons, pens, notebooks and
glue. The response to our 1st annual
drive was overwhelming. We collect-
ed 84 boxes of color crayons, almost
300 pens and a plethora of brightly
colored notebooks filled with both
college rule and wide rule paper.
On Tuesday we sorted out the
supplies between the county's four
schools and later this week we will
deliver them to the front office of
each school.
Thanks to the community's over-
whelming support, children in
Gilchrist County will not have to do
without an education because they
have no school supplies.

Letters to the Editor


Thanks Bell officials
Isn't it wonderful that the City
Council and the City Manager of
Bell are assisting the seniors and the
needy?
They allow the Food Pantry, Cath-
olic Charities, and Relative Care
Givers to use their facilities to give
food away.
This helps cope with an ever shrink-
ing food budget dollar for citizens on
fixed incomes and the working poor.
Thank you Bell, The little city with
the big heart.

Alien Invasion
Attn: Allen Boyd; US
Rep. District 2
Unless immediate and compre-
hensive action is taken by our gov-
ernment against the ongoing influx
of illegals. The consequences will
unquestionably result in degradation
of our society to a most devastat-
ing extent. I for one am very, very
concerned, not only for myself, but
much more for my grown daughters,
my grandson and ultimately for my
beloved country, the USA.
Judicial Watch has calculated the
torrent tet idst tt t4he US of llfgaldg
to be on the order of $53-billiontan-
nually. These illegals want all the so-
cial welfare benefits of legal citizens.
Most have no intention of returning
home. They are bringing their wives,
their girlfriends and their children
here in order to establish permanent
residences. They demand free health
care, free education and all privileges
of citizenship.
No person from any other country
can possibly be eligible for citizen-
ship if he does not obey the rule of
law. Anyone who enters America il-
legally has violated ipso facto, the
rule of law. All such persons must be
either deported or imprisoned.
Any individual, group, company or
government entity that aids or abets
illegals undermines the rule of law
and diminishes our national sover-
eignty. Illegal aliens have no legal or
moral grounds whatsoever oft which
to dictate what our immigration laws
should be. These laws have been in
effect for many decades and have
been the basis on which millions of
aliens have been legally admitted to


our country.
It is [emergently] imperative that
the US Government erect and main-
tain a complete border fence of such
size and construction as to make any
penetration thereof exceedingly diffi-
cult. The cost to America is far great-
er should we fail to do so.
I implore you to lend your full sup-
port to our greatly undermanned US
Border Patrol. Two courageous offi-
cers, Ignaceo Ramos and Jose Com-
pean, have been given lengthy prison
sentences as a result of their perfor-
mance along the border. Their trial
and sentencing has been a shameful
miscarriage of justice. By all means
co-sponsor HR563 granting these
loyal Americans a full congressional
pardon.

Management

District

acquires

Otter Springs
The Suwannee River Water Mani-
'agemeni District's 'governing bardtl
has approved the purchase of 636
acres in Gilchrist County. The prop-
erty known as Otter Springs will be
purchased for $6.8 million in a deal.
that includes a provision for the cur-
rent owners to relinquish a bottled
water permit.
Charlie Houder, Deputy Executive
Director for Land Acquisition and
Management, says that the recre-
ational facilities along with an abun-
dance of natural resources makes the
Otter Springs purchase one of the
most exciting acquisitions in recent
years.
"Otter Springs is an important ac-
quisition for the District because it
encompasses a number of significant
features related to water resource
protection," Houder explains.
At 636 acres, it is one of the few
remaining parcels of its size left on
the Suwannee River. The acquisition
will expand the corridor of protected
habitat along the river and will extin-
guish a permit to bottle up to 400,000
gallons of water a day.
The property serves as both an
exemplary recreational and envi-
ronmental investment that will offer
protection to two freshwater second
magnitude springs, over a mile of
frontage on the Suwannee River and
high quality natural communities.
"District ownership of the prop-
erty will expand the opportunities for
public recreation and nature-based
tourism in the region," Houder says.
The purchase is being made with
funds from the state-wide Florida
Forever program. The District will
also make annual payments in lieu of
taxes to Gilchrist County to offset the
taxes paid by the current owner.
Upon closing in October, the Dis-
trict plans to keep the property open
to the public including use of all fa-
cilities on-site. This is likely to occur
through a lease agreement with Gil-
christ County.

Trenton City Manager receives a raise


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
met Monday in a regular meeting and
discussed the 2008-2009 budget.
During the budgeting process the
commissioners voted unanimously to
in favor of a motion made by Randy
Rutter and seconded by Marcia Hel-
lams to give Jered Ottenwess the city
manager a raise of $6,299.
This took the manager's salary
from $43,701 to $50,000 per year.
Mayor Glen Thigpen told commis-
sioners that he had directed the city
manager to bump his salary up in the
2008-2009 city budget that the com-
missioners would be reviewing.
, The mayor also said that after the
former city manager Michael Lamar
had been with the city for three years
he made $52,000 per year.
Jered Ottenwess was hired as the
city manager in September of 2005.
They also voted to give the em-
ployees up to a five percent raise
depending on how they do on their


evaluations. The commission agreed
that every employee would receive at
least a two percent increase in salary
to help keep up with the cost of living
increase.
The commissioners left additional
raises above the two percent entirely
up to the City Manager. With the two
percent increase the police chief's
salary will be $39,631. The chief is
the second highest paid employee of
the city after the manager.
After a lengthy discussion on
the pros and cons of providing ani-
mal services to the citizens of Tren-
ton through county animal control
they voted 3 to 2 in favor of paying
$33,800 to the county to continue an-
imal control. Rutter and Wilks voted
no on animal control. They also di-
.rected the manager to go back to the
county and request more information
about how they arrived at Trenton's
portion of the county animal con-
trol budget. The budgeted amount
last year was $17,900. There was


also some discussion about dropping
animal control all together within the
city since it was rated lowest of all
city services on the recent survey that
the city sent out.
Only 20 percent of the citizens
chose to respond to the survey. But
those 20 percent made it clear that
they did not want to pay any additional
money to fund any additional servic-
es. The survey also reflected that road
construction and repair were valuable
to the citizens, and after some discus-
sion Commissioner Rutter requested
that $10,000 be found in the budget
to at least do some simple road repair
and up keep around town.
Rutter said, "If we could just patch
some pot holes I would feel better."
Public Works Director Tom Powell
said that he would need an additional
man.
After some discussion Powell
asked for a small used truck that could
be used to haul lime rock and asphalt
around the city to do the street work.

When Pittman started with the Of-
fice of Agriculture Law Enforcement,
there was an annual turnover rate of
25 percent whereas now the rate has
dropped to less than three percent.
"Any success I've had hasn't been


because of anything outstanding I've
done, but because of the people under
me," Pittman said.
A retirement party was held in Pit-
tman's honor at the Suwannee River

the voice of the people is silenced. Your vote is precious. It is your gift

On August 26, after thoughtful and prayerful consideration, you make

My wife. Wanda. and I would like to thank you for your consideration and

and regardless the outcome, we will continue to serve our community in
what ever capacity we can.

I have a sincere desire to be your representative and use my knowledge

of excellence it has achieved. I humbly ask for your vote.

heifer projects.
Chandler was recently elected by
his peers to be Parliamentarian on
the Gilchrist County 4-H Council for
the 2008-09 year, and also was a key
member of Gilchrist County's first-
place dairy quiz bowl team at the
state contest in Tampa on August 5.
Chandler says leadership and
public speaking are two of the most
important skills he's learned in 4-H.
Chandler is an excellent public speak-
er and has competed successfully at
County and District 4-H events for
the past three years, winning at Dis-
trict Events with his demonstrations
on Breeds of Coonhounds, Poultry
Care, and Vegetable Gardening.
Chandler loves 4-H because he
lives on a farm and aspires to be a
large-animal veterinarian, and 4-H
helps him learn all he can about the
livestock on his farm. He says 4-H
also lets him make friends with other
young people in the county with sim-
ilar interests.
Congratulations, Chandler, on be-
ing the 4-H'er of the week!
Of course, 4-H is open to all youth
in Gilchrist County ages 5-18, and
the new 4-H year starts September
1st, so now is the time for youth to
join 4-H, call 463-3174 for more in-
formation.

Florida is well known as the Sun-
shine State, but during the remaining
summer days, Florida could also be
called the "bug state." It is interest-
ing that there are over 13,000 species
of insects in Florida with new species
appearing almost daily.
The following critters are common
this time of year and homeowners are
sometimes curious and/or alarmed
due to the size, numbers and physical
appearance of these insects. Here are
my top three, based on occurrence.
I've also included the Hickory Horn
Devil because it's a colorful oddity.
Lubber Grasshopper: Spectacular
because of size and sometimes quan-
tity, adults may exceed three inches
in length with red, yellow, and black
coloration. They can be seen clumsi-
ly walking across roads and through
the landscape. They cannot fly and
jump only short distances. When
alarmed, Lubber Grasshoppers may
emit a toxic substance, accompanied
by a hissing sound to discourage
predators from consuming them.
Fall Webworm: Larvae are usu-
ally pale yellowish-greenish with a
dark stripelengthwise down the back
and a yellow stripe, lengthwise on
each side. Mature larvae are about
one inch long and covered with long
silky gray hairs. They are noticeable
in the landscape because the larvae
spin large webs in and around the
tree they are feeding on. The fall
webworm is known to feed on more
than 100 species of trees including
pecan, hickory, fruit trees and sweet-
gum. Caterpillars can defoliate the
tree where the web is located.
Two Striped Walkingstick: Also
called spit devil, prairie alligator and
stick bug they are commonly seen
in pairs with the smaller male rid-
ing along on the back of the female.
Generally dark brown with two yel-


lowish stripes running down the
length of their back, females measure
about two and a half inches, while
the males are smaller and more slen-
der, averaging one and a half inches.
These insects feed on the leaves of
plants but never to the point that they
are considered injurious pests. As a
defense mechanism, they may dis-
charge a foul-smelling milky secre-
tion which can cause discomfort if it
contacts the eyes. It is said they can
aim the secretion with accuracy up to
15 inches.
Hickory Horn Devil: The largest
larvae of our native saturniid cater-
pillars, in excess of four inches. The
caterpillar is blue-green with promi-
nent spines or 'horns.' Most often
found on hickory or pecan trees. De-
spite their size and appearance they
are harmless to the trees they feed on
or to people.
These are four of the many insects
you may notice until the first frost.
Insects they are, serious pests they
are not. Take the time to collect the
facts before employing any pest con-
trol measures. Insecticide use, for the
insects listed above, is not recom-
mended.

Love, war and Newberry mail


By Jessica Metzger
High Springs Herald
As Herbert Marlowe, Newberry's
former postmaster from the 1940s
and '50s, prepared to turn 90, he said
he has trouble remembering certain
things but still can recall important
moments in his life.
He remembers his commanding
officer in World War II giving him
leave one weekend and telling him
to get married. So, on July 24, 1944,
Herbert Marlowe married his sweet-
heart, Emma Lee, in England, in the
Army Red Cross hospital where she
was a nurse. Injured soldiers looked
on as Emma Lee, in her wedding
gown, flown in from back home in
the United States, and Herbert in his
uniform stood up to take their vows.
SA few short months later, in Sep-
tember of 1944, Herbert would be
captured in Operation Market Gar-
den. He and 45 men were taken to
Germany, where they remained for
nine months in labor camps.
At 89, Marlowe has lived a long
and full life. He served in the 82nd
Airborne Division, the North African
theater, Italy and at D-Day.
When the war ended and he was re-
leased from captivity, he came home
to Newberry and the farm, raising
three children with his wife, running
their farm and serving as postmaster
of Newberry for 27 years, Marlowe
said.
a On Sunday, March 9, his family
celebrated his 90th birthday at the
Newberry Church of Christ social
hall.
S"I think it's a great achievement to
turn 90," said Rosemary Marlowe-
Dziuk, Marlowe's oldest daughter,
who lives in Virginia. "If anyone can
do it, it's my father. He's such a sur-
vivor."
SBelinda Marlowe, Marlowe's
youngest child, referred to her father


Emma Lee and Herbert Marlowe


as a "survivor," as well.
"I've always felt he was a survi-
vor," she said. "He never would have
made it through his POW experience
if he hadn't had faith in God and been
very positive. His attitude about life
was very unique."
During the war, Marlowe was part
of D-Day in Normandy. What he re-
members most about that experience
were the planes. "You could see the
planes coming over," he said. "I was
with the paratroopers. We landed that
first night. It was just like plane after
plane."
Marlowe also remembered never
having enough food during the war.
"We stole anything we could eat
during the war," he said. "We'd have
starved to death if it hadn't been for
us picking things up."
Operation Market Garden, in Sep-
tember of 1944, was where he was
captured not too soon after.
"I've had a stroke, so it's hard to re-
member things," Marlowe explained.


But he did describe how he and 45
men were captured and taken to Ger-
many to stay in the labor camps. He
remembered the food they were given
to eat there: one loaf of bread for five
men to share, and one bowl of cereal
a day. "We called the cereal 'potato
soup,'" he said.
A book called "Work Commando
311/1: American Paratroopers Be-
came Forced Laborers for the Nazis"
has been written about his, and his
fellow prisoners' experience. They
were held for nine months before be-
ing liberated.
"The other boys in the POW camp
looked up to my father because he
was older," said Rosemary Marlowe-
Dziuk.
Marlowe was approximately 25
years old when he was drafted into'
the service in 1942, she said, so he
was a little older than most of the
other American soldiers.
Marlowe remembered a little
about the day after he was liberated.

My Plan for a Safe County
During my speech to citizens and political candidates attending the North Gilchrist Volunteer
Fire Department's pancake breakfast, I revealed a brief description of my plan to reduce the crime
rate in Gilchrist County.
In the last few months, I have been repeatedly asked how will I reduce the crime rate in the
County, specifically, burglary of your homes and the theft of your property.
It is a fact that the majority of our citizens are not concerned with "flowery and unnecessary"
programs promised by some candidates.
SInstead, citizens are very concerned about electing a sheriff who is capable of and will protect
their families and property. When elected, my primary concern will be the safety of citizens
and the protection of their property. My goal as Sheriff will be to reduce all crimes in Gilchrist County.
The current manning of the sheriff's office allows for 2-5 patrol deputies to be on duty at a time. Given the number of square
miles the county is comprised of, the ratio ofdeputies to citizens (estimated 1 to 3400), the rural environment and the reality that
the economy will not allow for funding of more deputies, it becomes apparent that the task of reducing these crimes is going to
be difficult.
SCitizens are more susceptible to becoming victims of burglaries and thefts on weekdays during daylight hours while they are at
Work. Increasing neighborhood patrols during weekday daylight hours is critical in the prevention of burglaries and
ihefts.
SWhen elected sheriff, I will implement my innovative Community Oriented Policing plan that focuses on crime prevention. My
plan is to build community partnerships and involve "you" the citizens of Gilchrist County in assisting the Sheriff's Office
i in the-protection of yourselves and your property.
Those initiative include:
Increasing daytime neighborhood patrols by reassigning administrative and night shift deputies to day shift patrol hours.
Providing advanced training for deputies in criminal patrol tactics. Require deputies to spend the majority of their shifts in
,your neighborhoods to increase police presence.
SProviding deputies and investigators with advanced training and equipment needed to conduct thorough crime scene investi-
gations. Requiring deputies to follow-up with victims of crime to keep them informed of the status of their cases.
Spearheading the formation of a multi-agency theft task force with surrounding counties. Investigators will work undercover
in your neighborhoods and frequent surrounding pawnshops, flea markets, and scrap metal dealers in search of stolen items.
Acquiring used fleet vehicles, at no cost, from larger law enforcement agencies to augment the number of Sheriff's Volun-
Steers who desire to patrol you neighborhoods.
Restructure and expand the Sheriff's Volunteer Patrol Force. Strategically schedule those assets to saturate your neighbor-
Shoods with a police presence during daylight hours.
SRelentlessly pursuing illegal drig activity within our county. Conducting regular drug sweeps on school campuses.
Providing training to "you" the citizeris on how to protect yourselves and safeguard your property. This training will include
elements of suspicious activity, crime proofing your homes, your rights as gun owners, and applicable laws pertaining to the use
of force in self-defense and the safe operation of firearms.
Promoting my "Good Neighbor" initiative throughout the county and encouraging citizens to assist each other in the protec-
tion of each other's property. Neighbors must make the effort to look ourfor one another as'we did years ago.
Revitalizing and expanding the Neighborhood Watch Program.
Ensuring the Sheriff's Office is represented at all community meetings to help solve problems.
Assigning my Chief Deputy as the Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer to keep the citizens informed on crime trends
within the county.
Expanding the Sheriff's Office Reserve Deputy Program.
Conducting information sharing with the Sheriffs of surrounding counties to assist in solving crimes and arresting criminals.
When elected sheriff, I will make myself available to all citizens and work diligently to bring the county together on crime
prevention initiatives. NOW is the time for citizens to work with law enforcement and stop criminals before they strike.
There is little doubt the recent crimes committed in our county are directly related to the weak economy and the nationwide drug
epidemic. I personally believe we have just begun to experience what the future holds for our entire country.
After comparing the manpower available within our Sheriff's Office to the size of the county, you will realize criminals have a
clear advantage of attaining their goal of victimizing you.
I strongly feel the only key to crime prevention is my plan to put a quality police presence in your neighborhoods coupled
with effective community partnerships.
When elected, I will need your help in building community partnerships. Partner with me. Working together, we can make
Gilchrist County a safer place to live. Please vote on August 26.

4-H'ers of the Year


He was reunited with his wife (and
Army nurse) Emma Lee. They spent
the day walking through local Euro-
pean towns and having pictures taken
of the two of them in pretty fields and
gardens.
Marlowe said coming, home from
the war was a "jolly good time." His
wife returned home from the service
first. "All my family was there to
meet me," he said. "Caught a train
and rode it to Ocala. Whole family
met me there."
But like. other soldiers newly re-
turned from the war, Marlowe said
he had difficulty adjusting to home.
"I had a hard time adjusting, getting
along with everything. Emma Lee did
everything she could to help me," he
explained. "We worked the farm for
one year. We continued to farm, but I
got the postmaster job, too. It helped
me -- kept me busy all the time."
His daughter, Rosemary, thinks
their farm was one of the things that
helped her father the most. "I think
he had an extremely hard war ex-
perience," she said. "He has never
fully recovered from that time. But I
think coming back to Newberry...and
memories of my mother and com-
ing back to the farm was always his
dream. One of the things he was liv-
ing for was to get to come back and
live with my mother."
Herbert Marlowe Jr., of Newber-
ry, Marlowe's oldest child, likened
his father to the other soldiers who
served during WWII. "He did what
was right to do, and he had a lot of
experiences," he said. "Like Tom
Brokaw said, my dad was part of the
'Greatest Generation.'"
Marlowe's children have many
fond memories to share of their fa-
ther from their childhood.
"He was a very hard worker, but
sometimes he could laugh to the
point where he'd lose control," Be-
linda Marlowe said. "I have this say-
ing ever since college: That after they
made John Wayne and my dad, they
quit making real men and only made
little boys."
Rosemary Marlowe-Dziuk said,
"My father is an infinitely patient
man." She said he had a-"gift with
animals," especially dogs.
"He was one of the best bird dog


trainers. Dogs loved him," she said.
"He had a dog named Ann that would
sit so close to him in the truck that
my mother couldn't sit next to him."
He was married 58 years to his
wife. Emma Lee died four years ago.
They are all proud their father has
made it so far in life.
"I think it's a credit to both his genes
and how he's cared for himself," Her-
bert Marlowe Jr. said. "Anybody who
lives to be 90 has earned it."
Rosemary Marlowe-Dziuk and Be-


linda Marlowe both think it is all in
his attitude. .
"He's taken good care of himself,"
Rosemary said.
"He realizes that health is impor-
tant and he wants to live. He really
has an interest in life and people."
Belinda said, "Whenever you visit
him, you never feel like you're vis-
iting an old person. He's upbeat and
very talkative." Rosemary said that
whenever she calls him, he always
says, "I'm having a wonderful day."

As stated, our county had a grant to spend $1.4M on the EOC building. FACT: In
my opponent's article for this paper, he stated the commission approved $1.7M.
Spending at that rate, how long will Gilchrist County be able to keep the lights
on, employees paid and the TV working at that great building? The EOC build-
ing is state of the art however, it would be nice to have a fire engine or two, to
combat brush and structure fires within our county.
The millage rate was lowered and appreciated by all Gilchrist County tax
payers. However, permit costs have increased, and the number of permits
required has doubled. Permit fees are just another way of being taxed. Just
because legislators in Tallahassee say you can do something does not mean you
should. Let's keep commonsense involved in our board of county commission
decisions.
Control government spending, limit government growth, support clean indus-
try for higher paying jobs in the private sector, and honesty is what I, Barrett
Brown, will bring to the District 3 seat and all of Gilchrist County if elected.
Your vote is your voice on August 26.

For

TAX COLLECTOR
GILCHRIST COUNTY

Your Tax Collector's office has maintained operation
with the same number.of staff for the past (10) years,
while Gilchrist County has continued to grow.
Questions have been raised about adding services to
the office, such as drop boxes, satellite offices,
driver's licenses, etc., conveniences to be sure; we all
like the idea of "one-stop shopping," but, like all:
services, they come with a price tag. Fees collected by
adding these services would not cover the initial
expense necessary to hire personnel, obtain needed
equipment and office space; and with the current
economy and budget constraints we are all facing; it's
just not feasible at this time.
While paying at the Tax Collector's office is not
always a pleasant experience, my staff has always
strived to give FAST, FRIENDLY, COURTEOUS,
EFFICIENT and ACCESSIBLE service to you our
customers.
I appreciate the support that you have shown me in
past, and I am once again asking for your vote in the
upcoming election. "THANK YOU."

County Commissioner, District 5
Proudly and Faithfully serving the citizens
of Gilchrist County for the last 4 years.
"Because I Care."
I am asking the citizens of Gilchrist County for their consideration
on August 26 for re-election as your county-wide county commis-
sioner.
This job's not about power, money, or making me think I am Mr.
Thomas. I like what I do; I enjoy helping people. I ask for no pat on
the back. I was hired to do a job, and I take pride in what I do. I've
tried to be what I think a county commissioner should be, a servant of
all the people, children included. When a man or woman enjoys what
he or she does, he or she usually works hard at it. I have no regrets
about the last 4 years, and if re-elected, I'll continue to serve you
faithfully and honestly. I'll make no decisions that affect Gilchrist
County or the citizens without first weighing the good and bad.
I am not intentionally going to do anything to make a mess for
someone else to clean up.I
I ask the citizen's to put their trust in me for the next 4 years. I'll do
my best not to let you down or regret it. I do care about Gilchrist
County.

Thank you for your consideration on August 26th

r
::
;


The Dixie County Health Depart-
ment has been awarded a three-year

the Department of Health in the
amount of $650,000 per year.
This competitive grant process had

"This grant will help our most vul-
nerable residents to receive health
care locally as well as after tradi-
tional hours and on Saturdays," said
Sable Bolling, Administrator of the
Dixie and Gilchrist County Health
Departments.
"We are most appreciative of the
Department of Health's award of
funds to support the health of our
low income and uninsured residents.
The grant will allow them to receive

services locally so they do not need
to use more costly emergency rooms
for non-emergencies."
Services provided by this grant in-
clude Outreach in Dixie and

nancial eligibility and to link under-
insured and uninsured individuals to

Well sir, I believe we are in the
midst of a full blown case of the
summer doldrums. Of late we've had
fewer folks showing up and the ones
that do are certainly not their usually
perky selves. According to Webster
doldrums are 1. a spell of listlessness
or despondency and 3. a state of in-
activity, stagnation, or slump. Some
folks might disagree, but I say if the
shoe fits wear it.


Maybe it's that oppressive heat
that sucks the life out of you the min-
ute you step out of the "how did we
ever live without it" air conditioning.
Maybe we're just becalmed like a
ship stuck in the doldrums around the
equator. Or maybe we're just getting
old; no, it must just be the dog days
of summer nipping at our heels. So
just sit back, relax with a tall ice cold
glass of tea, and know that this too

* SHERIFF


WHAT ISA SHERIFF?
What characteristics should a Sheriff possess? The Sheriff should represent the highest
standards of morals as established by the community which he serves. Among these
attributes are honesty, fairness, and diligence in meeting all the needs of the county and
being ethical in all endeavors.
For most citizens it is rare for them to call upon the services of the Sheriff's office.
When assistance is needed you expect that the deputy(s) who respond will be knowledge-
able of the law so that they will have to assist or guide you. This is where the Sheriff's
wisdom and experience must be apparent in providing all the departments with training
that is now mandatory to educate the officers so that they have the knowledge of the law,
and the skills and the techniques to deal with problem areas.
A Sheriff must possess communication skills that would enable him to talk with you or
be with you in time of need or crisis. The Sheriff must be of the caliber to keep all
conversations confidential and held in trust. Due to the nature of his job duties, the
Sheriff must maintain the highest ethical standards and not utilize the position for
personal gain but rather to do all things for the betterment of the county.
The Sheriff should possess the highest quality of leadership skills and provide proper
management for the office. Through the establishment of Policy and Procedures, the
goals and mission of the agency, as well as standards for the agency, are outlined.
Tony Cruse has these attributes! Tony has been a Patrol Deputy, Patrol Sergeant, Correc-
tions Lieutenant, and Captain of our Sheriff's Office for over 12 years and has proven his
dedication to the people he serves by his proven leadership and experience and continued
commitment to Gilchrist County.

angel kit for each one of us, and on
the July 30th meeting anyone that
wants to make one will be able to do
so.
There were no July birthdays, but
we have three in August, Bonnie
Edwards, Lu Rowland, and Barbara
Strom.


Jackie 1MIoore had a bad fall in
the middle of the night a week or so
ago. Thank the Lord she came to and
was able to call her daughter, Linda,
who lives next to her. She had to
have eleven stitches in her head, but,
praise God, everything else was fine
and she's on the mend.
Just a reminder that we need to
watch out for one another and hold
one another up in prayer.
Remember we are meeting every
Wednesday now so we will be look-
ing forward to seeing you as often as
you can make it.
By the way, I talked with God this
morning and He sends His love. 'Til
next time.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
August 14 at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. What a great day we had
with Chief of Police Robert Douglas,
Sgt. Al Graves, Mayor Teal Pomeroy,
County Commissioner Tony Parker,
and County'"Commissioner Danny
Stevens. It was a chicken and dump-
lings day and Chief Douglas said
he could smell them all the way to
Chiefland. Everyone had a good vis-
it. Toni Collins was also out, and we
talked about our night at the ballpark
last Saturday.
Lois Fink has finished another quilt
for a lady in Dunnellon. It is a busy
Bow Tye using so many collars. Kim
Hart is working on her,.quilt as well
as Sue Sharp on a one of a kind. Each


week lots of quilting goes on here as
well a great fellowship.
Norma Eldridge was over from
Ocklawaha with a load of beautiful
fabric. As the quilters go through it,
there isn't much left, and we appreci-
ate all that comes in.
Derick and six boys .were out on
Tuesday. They started mowing, and
it started raining; after an hour and a
half it stopped and they finally got it
done. Thanks Lancaster.
Quilter's lunch was chicken and
dumplings, eggplant casserole, potato
casserole, okra, beans, biscuits, mac-
aroni salad, boiled peanuts, grapes,
pecan cookies, and so much more.

Cold-hardy palms
Needle Palm is a native palm with
a short trunk, has sharp needles and
fiber matted crown.
Pindo Palm, the Pindo has stiff,
blue-green pinnate leaves and is
cold-hardy to 15 degrees; this palm
does well in north Florida.
King Sago has dark green foliage
and is cold tolerant to 10 degrees;
it needs lots of magnesium .(epsom
salt).
Washington Palm is hardy to 8-b,
north Florida range of cold hardiness.
The Washington Palm grows very
fast and can reach heights of 80 feet.
It has a large bushy top and is quite
stately in appearance.
Windmill Palm is a very cold-har-
dy palm that grows to heights of 40
feet with a large, dark green bushy
top, and tolerates moderate salt.


European Fan Palm, cold-toler-
ant to 12 degrees, springs multiple
trunks, is slow growing and tolerates
moderate salt.
Cabbage or Sable Palm is native
state tree and is wind resistant. Re-
move fronds when transplanting.
Tolerates moderate salt.
When transplanting palms remem-
ber they need lots of water for several
months. Palms can be fertilized ev-
ery month. Use a palm fertilizer (12-
5-12) and use magnesium sulphate
(epsom salt) along with your regular
fertilizer. Palms sometimes get scale,
an oil spray with two sprayings about
10 days apart should take care of the
scale.

Yes,
that's what we are going to have

THuRSDAY AIJUdJST2L 2008 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Nineteen

Dear Gilchrist County Voters:


Over the past 6 months I have shared with you my experience, education, and my vision
of the Sheriff's Office. Here is a summary.

I started my law enforcement career when I was just 19 years old. I knew since I was 16
years of age that law enforcement was the career that I would choose, and I have dedicated
-my entire adult life towards helping people.a . T

I began my career at Sumter County Sheriff's Office, then the Department of Corrections,
returned to the Sumter County Sheriff's Office, Lady Lake Police Department and then on
to the City df Coleman.

In 1991,1 was hired by the City of Coleman, Department of Public Safety. As the Assistant
Public Safety Director, I was a Police Officer as well as a Firefighter. By the age of 23, I was
appointed as the Public Safety Director. This position held the title of Police Chief and Fire
Chief. My duties included budgets, policies and procedures, scheduling, training, human
resources and investigations of all types of criminal offenses to include robbery, rape,
-murder, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, drug trafficking, drug possession, burglary,
thefts, crimes against the elderly and crimes against children.

I have 13 years of managing a law enforcement agency. For 8 of those years, I also man-
aged a Fire Department, which at that time was the second largest fire district in Sumter
County.

I am currently the Police Chief in the City of Trenton and I have held this position for 5
years.

Over the last 1.3 years, I have developed and proposed budgets to City and County Gov-
erning Boards for appropriation of funds. I have written polices and procedures for depart-
ments.

I have 54 credits in Criminology and 3 classes remaining until I receive a degree in Crimi-
nology. I have taken all of these classes from Lake Sumter Community College and Lake
City Community College.
Police Administration and Management
Court Procedures and Evidence
Criminal Law
Introduction to Corrections
Introduction to the Social Sciences
Sociology of Deviant Behavior
Introduction to Security
Introduction to Criminal Investigations
Crime and Criminology
Introduction to Forensic Science
Criminal Justice
One of the best courses that I have attended was a budgeting class offered by FDLE.
Police Administration and Management
Florida Criminal Justice Executive Academy
Effective Budgeting For Criminal Justice Agencies
Florida Department of State Records Management Seminar

I have over 2000 hours of law enforcement training.
2007 Instructor Techniques

Elect Billy Smith fbr GlkhdA Qual Shwiff

I also plan to re-establish the Sheriff's Explorers Program, even if I have to fund it person-
ally.

It would be an honor and a privilege if you would allow me to serve as your next Sheriff.
At this time, I would ask for your support and your vote in the upcoming
primary election on August 26,2008. Thank you for your continued support.

I am.certified as a Corrections Officer, Law Enforcement Officer, Breath Test Operator,
Radar Operator, F.D.L.E Instructor, F.D.L.E CMS Instructor and Taser Instructor.

I have worked for several different agencies and feel I have taken positive ideas from
each. I believe life is a learning experience and we should never stop learning.

I am one of the only candidates that has not worked for or been trained by the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office.

My management ability is effective and proven by the Uniform Crime Report (UCR) pub-
lished by the FBI. Over the past 5 years,the crime rate in the City of Trenton has decreased.
This was accomplished the first 2 /2 years with only 2 fulltime Officers and the last 2 1/2
years with 2 fulltime Officers and 1 part time Officer. The UCR Report shows:

2007 TPD CLEARED 54.4%
2006 TPD CLEARED 40.0%
2005 TPD CLEARED 63.4%

I am very proud of these clearance rates.

The recent narcotics operation that I just completes alaccaoi~plshed at a cost of only
$200 for the taxpayers of the City of Trenton. This operation was accomplished by me (a
salaried employee) and a Reserve Officer. Reserve Officers are state certified law enforce-
ment officers who have jobs outside of law enforcement but wish to keep their certifi-
cates active. Using Reserve Officers benefits taxpayers because these are non-paid
Officers that work a certain number of hours a month. As I have stated before, if you will
elect me as your Sheriff, I will form a Narcotics Task Force during my first 6 months in
office.

Illegal drug activity is a problem that affects a lot of different people. With an increase in
drug activity, crimes in general usually rise. With the economic short falls people who
were able to afford their drugs may resort to stealing. My point is that when you work on
narcotic type crimes, you may have a positive spin on preventing other crimes.

I am just like the rest of the citizens when I go to work every morning I would like to
have the peace of mind knowing that when I get home my property will still be there,and
when I am home, my family and myself will be safe.

As of yet I have made no promises, but at this time, I will promise if elected as your Sheriff,
I will work as hard as possible and pool my years of experience and resources together,
along with those presently at the Sheriff's Office, to make the Sheriff's Office as cost effec-
tive as possible maintaining the highest level of service.

I have never been over budget. Last fiscal year, I was approximately $10,000 under
budget and this year will be approximately $32,000 under budget. I mention this to dem-
onstrate that I have always been a good steward of taxpayers' dollars. Remember, I also
pay taxes. I also own property. My wife and I are raising our three children, ages 6 to age
18,and I want the County to be just as safe for them as well as for your family. I would like
to know that when I go to work, deputies would be out patrolling the streets and keeping
my family and yours safe:

This is why I plan to restructure the Sheriff's Office Administrative Staff. I have formu-
lated changes to put at least 2 more deputies on patrol and have 2 school resources
officers. The span of control is 5 to 7 people. I believe the Sheriff's Office currently has too
many administrative positions. I would like to cut back on these positions and get
officers back on the roads protecting the citizens and our property.

I plan to initiate programs (free of charge) to educate our senior citizens so they will not
fall prey to scams and other types of crimes.

I plan to start a program for our senior citizens that would allow a deputy to stop and
check on them for just a few minutes each week to let them know that someone still
cares. It does not cost anything to be kind and considerate.

Former Bell student learns discipline

at alternative school in Starke


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Bell Middle High' School stu-
dent with drug and alcohol problems,
Misty Attebury never thought she
would graduate from high school or
live to celebrate her 18th birthday.
A self-proclaimed "troubled child,"
Misty was faced with few options af-
ter getting into a physical fight with
her mother.
"I couldn't control myself," Misty
explained. "The judge said find some-
where for her to go."
Misty found the direction she des-
perately needed at the Florida Youth
Challenge Academy in Starke where
she was taught to become a produc-
tive citizen in a highly disciplined
and motivational environment.
According to Janice Wasson, co-
ordinator of the Neighborhood Ac-
countability Board Program for the
Gilchrist County School District,
Misty is one of four at-risk students
from Gilchrist County to graduate
from the state and federally funded
six-month program. Currently, there
are three students from Gilchrist
County going through the certi-
fied high school program, which is


voluntary and focuses on academic
excellence, community service, job
skills, leadership, life-coping skills,
physical fitness, health education and
citizenship.
"Misty was the first female from
Gilchrist County in the first class to
graduate with a high school diplo-
ma," Wasson explained. "She has a
real passion for the program."
The first morning of the military
structured program was a trial for
Misty as she was expected to do a
series of push-ups to start the day.
Adjusting to living on-campus at
Camp Blanding was difficult, not
only due to the physical rigors of the
program, but also not being able to
communicate with family and friends
regularly.
For the'first two weeks, the only
contact a student can have with home
is through letters. After that students,
once they become cadets, are given
a five-minute phone call home each
week with the option of an additional
five minutes being awarded for per-
formance in the classroom.
"they break you down; then build
yotfback up and prepare you for the


real, real world," Misty said.
According to Misty, cadets are giv-
en four gates, which include a family
day on-campus and three home pass-
es for three to four day visits.
Going home is the real test on how
far you have come, Misty explained;
seeing if you can stand up to all the
temptations waiting on you at home
is incredibly hard, but not impos-
sible.
At graduation Misty received her
General Education Diploma (GED).
In 2010 when her high school class
graduates from Bell Middle-High
School, Misty will receive her high
school diploma.
* In the meantime, Wasson explained
that Misty will begin classes at Lake
City Community College this week.
"Before you graduate from the
program, you have to make a post
resident action plan, which cov-
ers transportation, job, college and
your placement plans for the future,"
Misty said. "I never thought I would
go to college, but I start tomorrow!"

The construction of the County
Memorial Courtyard is now un-
derway. Soon it will be necessary
to have all the engraved bricks that
will be located around the flagpole in
place. The committee overseeing this
project would like to remind those
interested in purchasing a engraved


brick to contact Julee at the Gilchrist
County Administrator's Office at
(352) 463-3198.
The price of the engraved bricks
are $50 and this includes three lines
with a maximum of 16 characters/
spaces per line. The first bricks laid
will be to honor our military men and


women past and present. At this time
106 bricks have been sold but there is
space for 200 more. They need to be
purchased no later than August 29!!
Bricks for individuals can be pur-
chased at a later date but the military
one have to be purchased by the Au-
gust 29.

To the Citizens of Gilchrist County,
Too many times in today's society, most officials
care about their personal goals and not what is in
the best interest of their county and citizens. I will

that the citizens of Gilchrist County will be safe and
secure to live in our county with the assurance that
their law enforcement officers are working diligently
and professionally to make Gilchrist County one of
the safest places to live.
