Gilchrist County residents and
business owners could see a drastic
decrease in homeowner's insurance
premiums now that the county has
received an improved fire rating.
Inspectors from the Insurance Ser-
vices Office visited Gilchrist County
for the first time in 11 years on Sep-
tember 10 to conduct an inspection.,
According to Carlos Perez, Gilchrist
County fire chief, inspectors went
through the county's fire depart-
ments, water supply, and training
records to grade everything from fire
equipment to the 911 system before
issuing Gilchrist County an 8B rat-
ing. The new rating, which shows an
.improvement from a 9 rating earned
in 1997, surprised county officials,
including County Administrator Ron
McQueen.
"The good news is the fire rating
exceeded our expectations," Mc-
Queen said on Monday. "Homeown-
ers in the county should get a break
on their insurance rates and commer-
cial businesses should get an even
bigger break."
According to McQueen, the im-
proved rating means that any home
or business located within five driv-
ing miles of a fire station, would fall
within the 8B rating. A structure lo-
cared within 1.000 feet of a fire hy-
drant automatically goes to a 6 rat-
ing. Perez explained that those areas
would include CR 340 near the water
bottling plant. Southeast Fire Station.
Spring Ridge Fire Station. North Gil-'


Candace Tryon Bordine was ac-
cidentally shot Sunday morning just
before lunch while she was deer hunt-
ing with dogs with a group of hunters
in Dixie County near Jena, reported
Karen Parker of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission.
The Florida Wildlife Commission
received a call from the Dixie County
911 to advise that an Old Town wom-
an, Candice T. Brodine, 26, had been
shot while she was hunting on the
Bowlegs Main Line in Cypress Ridge
Hunting Club near Jena around 11:30
a.m. Sunday.
Reports indicated that Mrs. Bor-
dine was sitting in a pickup truck on
a wide graded road and her husband
was in the truck with her. A shot be-
lieved to have been from a group of
hog hunters on the same road, entered
the rear portion of the extended cab
pickup truck passing through the seat
and entering Candace's back. The
bullet continued through her abdo-


christ Fire Station and the perimeter
of both the Town. of Bell and City
of Trenton. A structure farther than
1,000 feet from a fire hydrant goes to
a 10 rating, which is the minimum in-
surance rating on a scale that ranges
from 1 to 10.
Perez said that one county em-
ployee who works in his office indi-
cated that she will see a decrease of
40 percent in her homeowner's insur-
ance due to the improved fire rating.
Across the board, Perez estimates
that homeowners who fall under the
8B rating will see a 10 to 15 percent
decrease in rates, while homeowners
within the 6 rating will see a 25 to 35
percent reduction in rates; and Bell
residents .and business owners who
qualify for a 5 rating could see a sav-
ings of up to 40 percent.
Areas within Gilchrist County Fire
Rescue that needed improvement in-
clude equipment and training capabil-
ities, Perez said. Over the next year,
the fire chief said he would like to see
the department buy two new pumper
trucks and establish a policy where
the county would be able to use water
from any of the 16 well fields located
in the county. If these goals are met,
Perez indicated that Gilchrist County
Fire Rescue could get credit for a
lank shuttle and thereby qualify for a
fire rating of 7.
Property o\ ners can contact the
Gilchrist County Public Safety De-
partment and their insurance compa-
nies to learn more about the effects of
the improved fire safety rating

"The good master upstairs was
watching over Candace this time,"
said her father Gary "Possum" Tryon
on Monday.
She was rushed to the intersection
of Bowlegs,Main Line and Horse-
shoe Beach Road where a helicopter
landed and airlifted her to Shands at
the University of Florida. She under-
went surgery on Sunday afternoon
for non-life threatening injuries. Bor-
dine is reported to be recovering and
was released from the hospital on
Monday.

Agriculture producers are accused of transporting water out of county


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Vision Com-
mittee held their monthly meeting on
Thursday, November 6, to discuss
agriculture as one of the top five in-
stitutions that involves rural econom-
ics as a way of life. Many agriculture
producers, as well as developers and
residents from both in the county and
people living in other areas of Florida,
were in attendance in the meeting.
Agriculture has been a way of life
in Gilchrist County since before the
67th county in the sunshine state was
split from western Alachua County.
Agriculture now in Gilchrist County
takes into production hay and forage,
cattle, row crops, dairy and the timber
industry. Gilchrist County Extension
Agent Marvin Weaver was introduced
in this meeting to provide insight in-
volving agriculture and the future of
this business in Gilchrist County. The
extension agent explained that the
dairy industry would continue with
good operators for years in the future.
The farmers that are involved in hay
and forage will also continue as long


as they have land to keep in produc-
tion. He explained that in this day in
time with the value of land increas-
ing, if an agriculture producer doesn't
own land, it is tough to rent and keep
leased property under cultivation.
Weaver pointed out that the small
family farm will continue to operate
as more and more agriculture pro-
ducers are forced to take on part- and
full-time jobs and farming becomes a
part-time interest. He pointed out that
many property owners are still put-
ting their harvested timberland back
into silver culture practice instead of
subdividing property for residential
development.
Scott Tucker, a farmer and member
of the Gilchrist Vision committee,
explained that agriculture in Gilchrist
County does not have problems, just
issues. Sometimes the issues turn into
problems, but that can be handled and
taken care of as issues, he explained.
Don Bennink, managing partner of
North Florida Holsteins dairy, told the
meeting that the dairy industry in Gil-
christ County is alive and well. "Ag-


riculture could be Gilchrist County's
brightest light involving the future.
We need to be more focused on train-
ing our young people for positions in
agriculture," Bennink explained.
Bennink explained that the com-
mercial and industrial development
that is ongoing in North Central Flor-
ida only provides revenue-involving
payroll to the workers employed.
Agriculture provides a multi-million
dollar impact back to Gilchrist Coun-
ty and the businesses in the area.
Bennink explained that the advances
that are being made in agriculture
will only improve the production and
provide greater benefit to the area in
the future.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen addressed the Vision
committee and the audience to an-
nounce the committee would now be
electing a chairman from its member-
ship. A motion for Dr. Jim Surrency
to become the chairman was made
and a second was provided. He was
about to be voted on when he told
the committee that due to his posi-


tion changing in the near future, it
would be best if he didn't accept this
position. A motion was made for Mi-
chelle W. Crawford to be the chair-
person. A second followed before she
was elected by a unanimous vote to
the post.
At that time the committee was
given a few minutes to discuss among
themselves agriculture in Gilchrist
County.
Georgia Shemitz, a member of the
committee, asked Scott Tucker, as an
agriculture producer what does Gil-
christ County need to do to preserve
agriculture?
"A farmer is the land's best friend.
For every dollar that is spent involv-
ing agriculture in Gilchrist County,
this revenue is multiplied many times
over in the local economy," Tucker
explained.
The chairperson explained that
when she taught ninth graders ag-
riculture in Trenton High School,
she asked her students to close their
eyes and vision the Trenton business

Veterans honored as American heroes

Gilchrist County Memorial Courtyard Veterans Day Dedication
SWith a hand placed over the heart
or raised up in a silent salute, citi-
zens of Gilchrist County stood in
silence watching the American flag
as it was raised up to the sky on Vet-
erans Day.
A day set aside each year to honor
all veterans who served in the Unit-
ed States armed forces, Veterans
Day also signifed the dedication of
Gilchrist County's Memorial Court-
yard on Tuesday.
"I ask that you don't just remem- 1
ber Veterans today, but every day
... 365 days a year," TommynLang-
ford, Gilchrist County Commission
Chairman said.
During the dedication ceremony
Langford presented an Amercian
flag that was donated by Senator Mel
Martinez. At one time the symbolic
flag had flown over the nation's
capital, Langford explained. After o
flying over the Memorial Courtyard
on its inaugural day, the flag will
be removed from the flag pole and
placed in a glass fronted case for
preservation.
The Memorial Courtyard, which
is located just south of the Gilchrist
County Courthouse, is the result of
a collaborative effort made by the -
Gilchrist County Board of County
Commissioners and the City of
Trenton.

district looking up and down Main
Street. "There is not a business that
opens their doors daily. that could
survive without the revenues that are
produced from agriculture in Gil-
christ County," Mrs. Crawford ex-
plained.
A committee person pointed out
if agriculture producers are going to
prevail in Florida they must continue
to have the Agriculture Green Belt
tax benefit classification to keep the
property value reduced in order to
farm the property.
Lloyd Chesborough, a member of
the Vision committee, explained that
the reduction of the family farm is due
to several key issues. He explained
that the large agriculture producer
will continue to expand, but they will
not be hiring more local!graduates.
The committee chairperson opened
the discussion to involve the audi-
ence for input to the committee.
Tommy Jones told the committee that
as a life long farmer in the county, he
can't get enough land to increase his
forage and row cropping operations.
The land that I farmed years ago has
now become residential development,
Jones explained. Jones reminded the
committee and the audience, "If we
don't 'farm, America and the world
doesn't eat."
The agriculture producers told the
committee that the issues involving
water in the county aren't a result
of over pumping by agriculture; the
problem involves an ever-increasing
scale of residential development.
Jean Wonser told the committee
the county needs to stop creating
residential subdivisions in the rural
areas.
Dr. Bruce Thomas, a member of
the Vision committee, spoke out to
explain that Gilchrist County also
needs a plan for the future use of the
water involving this county.
Jim Jones, a life long agriculture
producer and member of the Vision
committee, indicated that this drought
we are experiencing has reduced the
aquifer to a record low level. The de-
mand for water in this area has drawn
so much water from the aquifer that it
can no longer replenish itself.
Lowell Chesborough pointed out
that the local dairies are transport-
ing water out of the county daily by
the volume of milk they produce. He
also explained that the watermelon
producers are transporting large vol-


umes of water out of the county by
the produce that is shipped annually.
"I believe the recharge area that
farm acreage is adding more water to
the aquifer than the trucks are trans-
porting out of the county," stated Dr.
Bruce Thomas.
Gilchrist County watermelon pro-
ducer Rantz Smith addressed the
committee to point out that the Insti-
tute of Food and Agriculture Science
at the University of Florida research
has shown that 90% of the water that
is used through the drip irrigation
process involving plastic covered
beds is returned to the aquifer.
Ron McQueen told the audience
the information that Gilchrist County
was told in the mid 80s and 1990s
that Gilchrist County sits on an end-
less supply of spring water. We have
now been told that we have a water
problem in this district and we need to
also address this issue. He explained
that the water supply that Gaines-
ville used in the past came from their
eastern area, Clay county Keystone
Heights area. Now the GRU rep-
resenting the City of Gainesville is
extending their regional water, field
into the Northeastern portion of, the
Suwannee River Water Management
District that will reduce the ground
water that Gilchrist County has to
draw from.
A member of the audience asked
the committee if they could have a
representative from the SRWMD I at-
tend the Vision meetings in Gilchrist
County in the future. The next, Vi-
sion meeting will be held Thursday,
December 2, at the. THS auditorium
from 6-8 p.m.

Faith, Life And Prayer
(Kent Heaton)


Men and women of faith have always been
characterized by a devoted prayer life. From Abraham to
the apostle Paul, spending time with God was a vital part
of the lives of those who sought a higher walk of faith.
Abraham lived by faith and through his constant need of
communing with God was a friend of God. David wrote
his prayers down in psalms to declare the intimate peace
he shared with the Father. Daniel failed not in his daily
prayers even in the face of death. Jesus spent many hours
in deep confidence with His Father and died with a prayer
on His lips. The early disciples knew the power of prayer
in their daily lives as testified by Luke in the Acts of the
Apostles.
Life needs prayer. Prayer needs faith. Sometimes life
seems harsh, and unanswered questions challenge our
faith and cause doubts to rise in prayer. We know the
power of prayer. "The effective prayer of a righteous
man can accomplish much" (James 5:16). Jesus taught
His disciples to "pray and not to lose heart" (Luke 18:1).
The early church was admonished to be devoted to prayer
(Romans 12:12). Paul writes, "Be anxious for nothing,
but in everything by prayer and supplication, with
thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God"
(Philippians 4:6). Prayer must be constant (1
Thessalonians 5:17).
Jesus promised in the sermon on the mountain that
when the disciples ask they would receive; when they
sought after a blessing from God it would be found; and
when one knocks upon the door of promise that it would
be opened (Matthew 7:7-11). Yet life sometimes does not
find the answers we are seeking. With our faith and
trembling prayers, we seek God's blessing in our lives. We
may seek the concern of a loved one who is failing in
health and though we earnestly pray for their recovery


Sincerely,
Mary Rogers and family

find loss. Our desire for a blessing in life may be pleaded
before the throne of God daily and still find lacking in the
answer we seek. Is it because of a lack of faith that
blessings do not come? Are we being punished because we
do not have faith enough to bring about the desired result
through the pleading of the promises of God?
In our health and wealth religion of prosperity, the idea
is left that if you pray for something and it is not received
then your faith is lacking: If you pray for God to bless you
with children and yet you remain barren, is it because of
your lack of faith in God? When a loved one falls ill to a
disease and prayers are constantly offered for their
recovery and yet dies, do we say our faith was not great
enough in prayer? The great chapter of faith in Hebrews 11
is not only about those who found victory in this life
through their faith and their prayers but also the stories of
those who prayed just as hard and had as much faith if not
more and were not delivered (Hebrews 11:35-38).
Faith is the' love of God working through our love in
prayer expressing our deepest needs to a Father who loves
us. He hears our prayers. He knows our needs. He answers
every prayer. Our faith is not diminished when he says,
"No." There is nothing God cannot do, but God will not do
everything we ask. His answer should build our character
of faith to trust Him more and more regardless of the
answer He gives. Faith is not based upon the answer but
upon the request. Our trust in God is to rely upon His will
in our lives. When life brings challenges we show our faith
by praying to the Father. Our faith then brings the
challenge to light when the answer is received from the
Father.
Jesus left us an example to follow in Matthew 26:42.
"Your will be done."

By Cindy
My cup runneth over with good
news. John and I were delighted
when our son and daughter-in-law,
J. and Lyndsay announced that they
were having a baby the first of June;:
I am beginning to feel a lot like my
late grandmother "Shannie" who
was fond of saying, "There is always
room in my heart for one more." It's
true, my heart is about to burst at
the news of another sweet baby. Just
thinking about their baby makes me
smile. How much fun we are all go-
ing to have at Christmas time, and
can you just imagine Easter. J. and
Lyndsay are going to have the perfect
yard for great Easter egg hunts.
Thanksgiving has always been
one of my favorite, holidays. I like
Thanksgiving because it is a time to
* stop and reflect on all the wonderful
things that have happened in the last
year. This year I am so very thankful
for our beautiful new granddaughter
Allie and the wonderful blessing of
yet another child which will be here
soon.
Isn't it a blessing how God works?
As we reach the age of about 50 or so
our bodies begin to slow down, our
energy level is slowing too and the
fact is when working we just can't
hold out like we could a few years
earlier. We forget things a little more.
often and fall asleep while watching
TV; it's just the natural progression
of age. But then out of the: blue we
learn that we are going to be grand-
parents and, the autumn of our lives
becomes so exciting. We grandpar-
ents hold those precious bundles in
our arms and breathe in that wonder-
ful scent of a newborn baby, a scent
which I am convinced i a breath of
heaven. We are once again looking
with hopeful eyes into the future, into
the next generation of our family. We
are planning many happy years of
watching our grand babies grow and
watching the changes in our very own
children as they become young moth-
ers and fathers. How precious is life?
It is true, God planned so well for ev-
ery season of our lives, every season
becomes more special than the last.
Now that I've learned that grandchil-
dren are so very special, growing old
is not so very bad at all.
Congratulations to Lyndsay's par-
ents Johnny and Audrey Parrish and
also our good friends Bill and Kathy-
Park and Terry and Janie Owens,
10 a.m.
For a donation we offer eggs, sau-
sage, several different kinds of pan-
cakes, coffee, tea, and juice.
Our fire station is located on CR
138, 2.5 miles east of Hwy. 129.
Come out an& enjoy a delicious
meal with your family and friends.

who will also become grandparents
in late June.

With the holidays just around the
corner, we will all be pulling out re-
cipies for finger foods to take to one
event or another. It just goes with the
season event after event. The follow-
inig recipe was tested by a couple of
my good friends the past weekend,
and they gave it the thumbs up. Oh,
by the way, if you have fresh turnips,
ypu can use them. Just blanch them
for a minute or two first and drain
very well. It will take about a cup and
a half of fresh greens. If I had fresh
turnip roots, I would chop them up
into small cubes and use them also.
If you left the roots raw, they would
add a nice crunch to the dip. This dip
recipe is a spin off of hot spinach dip,
but it's really better; of course it is; it
has bacon.

6 slices of bacon, cooked
1/2 sweet onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1/4 cup chicken broth (or a little
chicken bullion stirred into 1/4 cup
water)
12 ounces of cream cheese
(1 and 1/2 8-oz. packages)
cut into pieces
16 ounces frozen turnip greens,
chopped'
1 8-ounce container sour cream
1/4 teaspoon dried crushed red
pepper.
Cayenne pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon Season All Salt
3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
cheese
Cook bacon in frying pan until
crisp; remove bacon and drain, re-
serving 1 tablespoon of drippings
in pan. Saute onion and garlic in
hot drippings 3 to 4 minutes. Add
chicken broth and cook 1 to 2 min-
utes, stirring to loosen particles from
bottom of pan. Stir in turnip greens
and 4 slices of cooked bacon that. are
crumbled. Add cream cheese, sour
cream, 1/2 cup Parmesan, red pepper,
and sprinkle a little cayenne over top.
Cook, stirring often for 5 minutes or
so until cheese has melted. Transfer
to lightly greased baking dish. Sprin-
kle evenly with remaining 1/4 cup
Parmesan cheese and remaining two
slices of crumbled bacon. Bake in
350 degree oven for 10 minutes until
heated well all the way through.

paign, I look forward to a partnership between the citizens of Gilchrist County, and the Gilchrist County

"Saints Alive" of
Lafayette Baptist
Association attend
meeting
"Saints Alive" of the Lafayette
Baptist Association met on Thursday,
November 6th, at the First Baptist
Church of Suwannee. 64 members
attended and seven churches from
the association were represented. Mt.
Nebo Baptist retained the "High At-
tendance Banner" with 19 present.
The fall theme for this gathering
was "Apples," and the whole fellow-
ship hall was decorated with these.
We played word games, had a relay
race, won many prizes, and were
entertained by a quartet; "Suwannee
Sounds" accompanied by their 93-
year-old piano player.
The apple theme was carried
through at our delicious lunch in-
cluding apple pie; apple cobbler, and
fried apple pies prepared by some of
the best cooks in the tri-county area.
A 'wonderful day of Christian Fellow-


ship was enjoyed by all and if you
didn't attend, you missed a blessing.
Thanks to Cathy Edwards, pastor's
wife, and her group for an outstand-
ing time.
Our next gathering will be in Feb-
ruary at Mt. Nebo Baptist, so watch
your bulletin after the first of the year
for details.

Bell 5th graders researching different birds on the internet.

BES fifth grade students

participated in voting for state

bird


On Tuesday, November 4th, the
fifth grade students at Bell Elemen-
tary had ,an opportunity to vote on
' possibly replacing our state bird, the
mocking bird, with a new state bird.
The Florida Department of Educa-
tion in collaboration with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission encouraged teachers and stu-
dents statewide to participate in the
process of selecting a new state bird.
Students in grades 4-8 had the op-
portunity to learn about the voting
process and some new facts about
Florida's bird life. The students re-
searched on the internet five differ-
ent birds that had been chosen by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission. The birds chosen
as possible replacements of our cur-
rent state bird were the Black Skim-

mer, Great Egret, Brown Pelican,
Snowy Egret, and the Osprey.
On Tuesday, over 70,000 students
across the state of Florida voted elec-
tronically. The winner, the Osprey,
was announced on the web the next
day. The results of the vote do not
mean the winning bird automatically
becomes the new state bird.
Our state legislators will now have
to make the final decision on whether
to change the bird emblem in Florida.
If changing the bird emblem to the
Osprey is approved by the House of
Representatives and the Senate, the
Governor will have to give the final
approval.
Participation in the activity was
part of the ongoing effort at B.E.S.
to empower our students with real
world 21st Century skills.

Trenton defeats Jefferson

County for district win
The Trenton Tigers were once again healthy and hitting on everyone that
moved Friday night as they defeated Jefferson County 48-21 for a District
2 Class A victory. The Tigers scored in every quarter of this game, and they
soundly defeated their opponent in every category of this contest.
Trenton's Tyler Brown got the Tigers off to a great start as he scored on
runs of 3 and 5 yards respectively in the first period. Chris Green split the
goal posts with his 13-yard extra points kicks following each touchdown to
give the Tigers a 14-0 lead.
Jefferson came storming back as Cromedie and Huggins scored on runs
of 4 and 5 yards as Broxie kicked 1 of 2 extra point kicks to close the point
spread to 14-13.
- In the second quarter C.J. Bowers got in to the scoring as he dashed for
65 yards on 2 separate occasions to increase the Tigers lead. Green kicked
the extra point following the first touchdown, and the second attempt was
blocked by Jefferson County to give the Tigers a 27-13 lead at intermission.
The Tigers were lead. by C. J. Bowers in the third period, as the senior run-
ning back busted through the Jefferson defense, crossing the end zone line for
another touchdown. Chris Green came in kicking as he made the- extra point
attempt for the home team.
The Tigers' defense did a great job in this game, but they were unable to
keep Cromedie out of the end zone in the final period as he scored one last
touchdown for the visitors. Jefferson County elected to go for the 2cpoint
conversion to cut the Tigers' lead to 34-21.
As the fourth quarter got underway, Trenton's Brandon McElroy got into
the scoring as he busted through the Jefferson defense for a touchdown.
Green added the extra point kick to increase the Tigers' lead to 41-21. The
Tigers' defense was working hard trying to suppress the Jefferson offense
when C.J. Bowers picked off a Huggins pass and returned it 80-yards for a
touchdown. Green added the extra point kick td give the Tigers a 48-21 much
deserved victory.
The Tigers' CalelbSmith led the offense as they gained 407 total yards. C.J.
Bowers rushed for 241 yards on 28 carries and 119 return yards for a total
360 all-purpose yards in his final home game of the season. Tyler Brown, the
sophomore sensation, got into the slashing of the Jefferson defense as he too
rushed for 100 yards on 11 carries. Caleb Smith scrambled to pickup 45 yards
on 4 carries for the Tigers.
The Tigers' defense put together an impressive effort to contain a talented
Jefferson County offense. C. J. Bowers was again in on the attack, as the
senior cornerback had 10 tackles and 2 interceptions. Brandon McElroy was
a defensive leader, as the senior linebacker posted 8 tackles. Jimmy Bogarde
was also a standout on defense as the senior linebacker had 6 tackles in this
game. Travis Sessions had an outstanding effort, as the senior defensive end
recorded 7 tackles with 3 being for a loss of yardage on each play. The Tigers
Aaron Avila and Trevor Pelfrey each had an interception in this game.
Trenton will take their (2-7) record into Chiefland Friday night as they face
the (4-5) Chiefland Indians. This game will be for pride and bragging rights
as both teams have participated against tough district competition and this
will be the final contest of their 2008 football season. Come out and support
your favorite team Friday night in Chiefland, as. the game will get underway
at 7:30 p.m.

What a marvelous show it was; funny and entertaining circus clown

S recently came to Gilchrist County, ily fun time, making for great memo-
and had performances at the Bell FEA ries!
Alumni Arena. Over 1,000 people, In an interview with Ringmaster
young, old, and in between, watched and circus owner, Florida native,
the spectacular feats of skilled gym- Justin Loomis, he mentioned that his
nasts, jugglers, trapeze and hula-hoop great-grandfather and great uncles
artists, trained dogs, horses, ponies, founded this circus in 1911. He then
tigers, and elephants; fourteen acts took up the banner from his father,


by purchasing the business in 1994.
Loomis Bros. Circus has come to our
area since 2005. Mr. Loomis relayed
that "the rapport which has been es-
tablished in this community is one of
lasting friendships as well as success-
ful business dealings."
The Loomis Bros. Circus business
tactics are such that a sponsor of the
circus has the possibility of making
a substantial amount of money as a
fundraiser for its organization's trea-
sury. The sponsor's job is merely to
find a location for the circus troupe
to perform. The circus company does
all the rest. This year, the Gilchrist
County sponsor was the Character
Council with assistance from the Bell
High School JROTC.
During the intermission of each
performance, there were other fea-
tures as well; such as the opportunity
to ride a Shetland pony, hold a five-
year-old, 32-pound boa constrictor,
and/or ride Olka, a 35-year-old Asian
elephant. Opening. ceremonies of
each performance included a color
guard presentation by the JROTC,
followed by the singing of the na-
tional anthem.
Demonstration of excellent char-
acter qualities resulted in making the
weekend a success, especially with
the beforehand perseverance of the
JROTC in making sure that the ro-
deo arena grounds looked neat and
tidy. And then afterwards, diligence
by the cadets who participated as the
"clean-up brigade." With the help of
so many, including those who were
spectators, all too numerous to men-
tion, a great big thank you is in order!
You are appreciated, one and all! It
was a great weekend! You helped to
make it happen!


FLORIDA GAS TRANSMISSION COMPANY
PROPOSES A PIPELINE EXPANSION TO
SUPPL YFLORIDA'S CLEANENERGYNEEDS.

The Filing October 31st

On October 31, 2008, Florida Gas Transmission Company, LLC (FGT) filed an
application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the Federal
Energy Regulatory Commission-(FERC) to construct an expansion,of its existing
interstate pipeline system. The project has been designated the Phase VIII Expansion
Project and has been assigned Docket No. CP09-17-000 at the FERC.

Florida Gas Transmission -your clean energy partner

FGT is Florida's leader in providing clean energy solutions, safely and reliably.
FGT is an interstate natural gas pipeline with offices in Maitland, Florida and Houston,
Texas and employees at field offices along our pipeline system. FGT operates a
4,900-mile pipeline system that runs from South Texas to Homestead, Florida. FGT
has been supplying the majority of Florida's, natural gas needs for almost 50 years
through an extensive network of underground pipelines.

Phase V/I/ Expansion Project its scope andpurpose

The Phase VIII Expansion Project refers to Florida Gas Transmission's proposal
to construct eleven pipeline loops,'three new pipeline segments, add compression at
eiglit existing compressor stations, construct one new compressor station, three new
meter stations, two meter station upgrades, and associated auxiliary facilities. FGT
proposes to construct 357.3 miles of 24-inch, 36-inch and 42-inch diameter mainline
loops, approximately 89.8 miles of 30-inch new mainline and approximately 36.1 miles
of 20-inch and 24-inch diameter new lateral pipelines. The project also includes the
acquisition from Florida Power & Light of approximately 22.7 miles of an existing 20-
inch lateral connecting FGT's mainline. Compression horsepower additions totaling
213,600 will be constructed as part of the project. FGT is requesting authorization
from the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration to operate certain
segments of its existing pipeline system in addition to portions of the proposed
pipeline expansion at greater pressures than currently authorized. This authorization
would eliminate the need to construct an additional 80.5 miles of 36-inch mainline
loops. The proposed in service date for the project is April 1, 2011, with the exception
of one new lateral segment in which it has been requested to be completed by
July 1,2010.
The purpose of the Phase VIII Expansion Project is to deliver needed natural
gas volumes to six electric generation utilities within the state of Florida.

How Landowners are affected.

A pipeline normally requires a permanent 50-foot wide right-of-way. During
construction, FGT will need an additional 50-75 feet of workspace next to the
permanent right-of-way. FGT may also need temporary workspace in certain areas,
such as road, railroad, or stream crossings, to accommodate particular construction
activities. Property owners are entitled by law to receive compensation for having a
pipeline on their property. FGT will negotiate with the property owners to receive.
approvals with a signed easement for needed property rights.
To the extent that FGT is unable to negotiate easement rights with landowners
whose property the pipeline construction impacts, such easement rights may be *
determined in accordance with the eminent domain laws of the state in which your
property is located.

How to obtain additional information:

Additional information including the application and a publication entitled
An Interstate Natural Gas Facility on My Land? What Do I need to know? is available
through the FERC website, www.ferc.govusing the "For Citizens" link. For

Nature Coast Garden Note
By Anthony Drew, Levy County Extension Agent

"Mistletoe, Lichen and Scale, Oh My


I hope characters from The Wizard
of Oz; Dorothy, Tin Man, Scarecrow
and Cowardly Lion will excuse this
near plagiarism. I liken fall landscape
abnormalities in the Nature Coast, to
be our version of "...lions and tigers
and bears." Like many of the 'threats'
Dorothy and company faced, some
North Florida garden oddities are not
threats at all while others are more
harmful than they appear.
Frequently misidentified as a
"scale" or "fungus," lichen is a com-
bination of a fungal and an algal
partner. Lichen do require a well-lit
surface in order to live. Anything
that causes a thinning of the canopy
of a tree, such as leaf loss in the fall,.
can indirectly cause a proliferation
.of lichen. With the thinning canopy,
more light reaches the surface and
therefore, more potential lichen. Li-
chen does not need to be controlled.
However, if a plant is covered with
lichen and seems to be in declining
health, consider other possible causes
of a thinning canopy such as stress to
the plant brought on by drought, root
and/or bark damage, disease, freeze
damage and so forth. Lichens do not
parasitize, kill, or damage plants.
Mistletoe is plant parasite, obtain-
ing all of its water and nourishment
from the host tree. In thinning cano-

has provided me with the experience
necessary to be your next city com-
missioner.
Being a long time resident, without
any intentions of moving away, I feel
I have a knowledge of what needs to
be done now as well as a plan for the
future. I am hard working, common
sense thinking,-and willing to listen
to all the residents and business own-
ers of Trenton.
We all need to be involved in the
decisions of the city and feel that we
have a voice. I want to be that voice.
I will be coming door to door to hear
your concerns and suggestions for
our city and answer questions you
may have for me. After all, how can
I represent you without ever meeting
you? Don't be a stranger; this is our
city.

py, mistletoe will become more obvi-
ous. It may be found in many trees
including pecan, cherry, hickory and
most oaks, with the exception of live
oak. Look for round "clumps" of
dark green leaves in the canopy of the
tree. Birds spread the seed. Though
not considered a serious pest, heavy
infestations may have some effect on
the tree's health.- Rarely, will mis-
tletoe cause the death of a tree. To
permanently remove mistletoe from
trees, the branch on which it grows
must be removed by cutting 1 to 2
feet back from the mistletoe plant.
Scales are insects that can damage
or kill plants. Adults permanently
attach to leaves or stems with a pro-
tective waxy "shell" covering. Scale
appears in a variety of colors, shapes,
and sizes and are visible to the naked
eye. Often a black, sooty mold will
be found on scale-infested plants.
Fall is the time of year to check for
scale insects and control them using
a dormant oil spray, following label
directions.
And lastly, you may notice the
mounds, yet never see the elusive
Eastern pocket gopher. Through
March, mounds niay be identified
by their size, eight to twelve inches
or more high and at least that big
around, and lack of an obvious entry
hole. Sometimes called a "salaman-
der," these animals are not amphib-
ians or moles. The Eastern pocket
gopher is a mammal that feeds on
roots and shoots of a wide variety of
plants. They are best controlled by
trapping.

From the
shelves of the
Bell Library
Halloween at the library was a tre-
mendous success! We are not sure
how many young "trick-or-treaters"
came by and picked up a hand full
of candy and a book of their choice.
We believe all were happy with their
loot. Snapshots of the hobgoblins
were taken, and can be picked up at
the library on or after Friday.
A reminder the winter hours at
the library are in effect opening at
1 p.m. and closing at 5 p.m Monday
thru Friday
We received two new large print
books this week, "A Christmas
Star" written by Thomas Kinkade
and Katherine Spencer. It is a heart
warmer novel of two families as
they observe, the Christmas Season.
Thomas Kinkade is America's most
collected living artist,. a man of faith
whose goal is to bring peace and joy
into people's lives. Katherine Spen-
cer is a fiction editor and author. This
book is an addition to their "Cape
Light Series."
"Dark Summer" is Iris Johansen's
newest -edition to her outstanding
works. You will be intrigued by this
exciting novel dealing with search.
and rescue dogs and their owners.
This book will also be found in the
large print section.
Hope to see you at Bell Library
soon.

Bell Elementary School (BES) stu-
dents exercised their right to vote in
a mock Presidential election on Tues-
day, November 4th. John McCain
won 268 votes to Barack Obama's
78 votes among second through fifth
grade voters. There were three votes
for Brian Moore, and one vote each
for Bob Barr, Cynthia McKinney,
and Alan Keyes.
Connie Sanchez, our Gilchrist
County Supervisor of Elections, pro-
vided our students with real voting
booths. a sample of the real Gilchrist

Step Back in Time
A Victorian Christmas Concert will
be presented Thursday, December 4,
at 7 -p.m. by the Lake City Commu-
nity College Choir and the Chamber
Singers in the Levy Performing Arts
Center on campus.
The singers will be dressed in Vic-
torian holiday costumes, performing
historically appropriate music from
the 19th century.
The choral director is Professor
of Music Owen Wingate, and the
college's choral accompanist is Tim
Redding. The choral concert will
include traditional carols, as well as
contemporary holiday music. Many
of our holiday traditions, decora-
tions, customs, foods, as well as mu-


County ballot, pencils, and "Future
Voter Stickers."
Mrs. Rush's BES Gifted students
had been busy learning how to be-
come good citizens, learning key
facts about and concepts behind
this year's election. They had been
studying who the candidates were,
how Americans vote for President,
and the important .role of our presi-
dent. In addition, they did research
projects on the history of voting and
all the political parties.
The students decided they want-
ed to set up a precinct here at BES.
sic, have evolved from the Victorian
era. Some of these include the song
"Dashing through the Snow" or "Jin-
gle Bells" and the poem "'Twas the
Night before Christmas."
Come see and hear the college choir


When students arrived at the pre-
cinct, they had to sign in by high-
lighting their name, and were told
the penalty of voting more than once.
There was a student-mide model of
a voting booth (which proved to be
very popular among voters). Voters
were asked to study the ballot prior
to voting. There were a number of
amendments, local, and state, and a
congressional position on the ballot.
Even though our BES voters did not
successfully mirror our nation's vote
for president, they exercised their fu-
ture right and duty as US citizens!
as they "deck the halls" and bring in
the holiday season. This event is free,
no tickets required.
Please call (386) 754-4255 for

sistance.
