County commission gets

commitment of $219,000

in budget savings in 2009


By John NM. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
rallied all of the constitutional offi-
cers on Monday evening to get good
faith commitments of how much
revenue each elected official could
identify and .return to the County
Commission for budget savings in
the remaining 2008-09 fiscal year.
Conimission Chairman Sharon Akins
Langford called the public hearing to
order as she turned the floor over to
Joe Gilliam. Gilchrist County Clerk.-
Gilliam explained that dealing % ith
the different constitutional officers'
budgets was a little more restrictive
that what he expected. The Gilchrist
County Commission can ask each of
the constitutional officers to volun-
tarily return revenue to the county.
or commit to the board an estimated
carryover they will have at the end of
the year, barring no unexpected ex-
penses occur. The board could man-
date through their monthly allocation
to each constitutional office that they
will give up a certain sum of revenue
to the board for reserve purposes.


County initiates


Gilliam explained that it is easier to
work with the constitutional officers
when everyone is willing to work to-
gether to get through this tough time.
A finance meeting was held
Wednesday, April. 1 with Sheriff
Daniel Slaughter to determine if the
Sheriff was going to be cooperative.
and work with the county in these
tough budget times. This meeting
was attended by the clerk, a county
commission representative, a finance
department representative and the
county administrator. The Sheriff
told the county officials that he did
not have any funds that he could vol-
untarily return to the county at this
time. He explained that at the end of
the year. if revenues were left over.
then he would return those funds to
the county.
The clerk told the Board of County
Commissioners that the Sheriff has
to approve any revenue reductions to
the sheriff's budgets before the coun-
ty can reduce any of the line items

ated a reduction in the 40-hour %work week and the hours of operation for

Rising riv

By Carrie A. Mizell
The Suwannee River is rising rap-
idly and expected to spill from its
banks and cause major flooding over
the next week, the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Emergency Management chief
'warned on Tuesday
:Residents along the Suwannee
River are being urged to take action
now to protect their belongings from
floodwater.
The National Weather Service re-
ported at 12:30 p.m. on Tuesday that
the Suwannee River at Wilcox was
at 6.5 feet. Flood stage for Wilcox is
il feet, which the National Weather
Service predicts will be exceeded
when the river reaches a crest of 17.8
feet on April 17. It is estimated that
the Suwannee River will reach flood
stage at Wilcox on Sunday. Histori-
cal crests at Wilcox are 22.32 feet on
April 14, 1948, 18.58 feet on April'
21, 1973, and 16.53 feet onApril 16,
1984.
County Administrator Ron Mc-
Queen said on Monday that his
brother-who lives just o er the Joe
Anderson Bridge at Fanning Springs
reported that the Suw% annee River had
risen 2.5 feet in just 24 hours.
At Rock Bluff, the National Weath-
er Service predicts the Suwannee
River will rise to a cresting point of
27.4 feet, which far surpasses histori-
cal crests of 22.12 feet in 2004/2005;
and 25.12 feet in 1998. If the river
reaches 27.4, feet it will not mark
the historical peak elevation at Rock
Bluff, which is 31.03 feet.
County' Commissioner '. 'Ray
Harrison, Jr. who has lived at lfart
Springs since 1965. was not the
only Gilchrist County resident with
a home on the Suwannee River that
spent much of Tuesday preparing to
pack up and leave his home in lieu of
the flooding waters.
Harrison estimated that he has

times due to' flood waters over the
years.
"If it's just less than it was in '73
then we can survive it," Harrison
said. "It won't be in our house, but it
will get pretty close.'.


The Santa Fe River near Ft. White
is rising slowly. At 10 a.m. on Tues-
day, water levels were at 21.73 feet,
which falls shy of the 24 feet flood
stage for this north Gilchrist County
location.

"Even though we are down signifi-
cantly, the board is so thankful to all
the buyers," Marti Smith, fair sec-
retary said. "In these tough times, it
could have been much worse."

Community Redevelopment funds
will be called upon to fund streetscap-
ing and new sidewalks on NE 1st
Street in downtown Trenton.
The proposed work will run the
entire length of NW 1st from Capi-
tal City Bank and the former Olde
Boarding House Restaurant to the
Train Depot.
On the west side of the street (the
Olde Boarding House side) there will
be a new sidewalk installed down the
entire street. On the east side of the
street. or the Capital City Bank side,
plans, indicate that the first two blocks
will have street side parking.
Trenton City Commissioners also
discussed making more parking and
a small park area at the grass lot near
the water tower next to the depot.
If NW 1st Street is redone, it will
provide a nice street with additional
parking for city sponsored events like
the Quilt and Craft Festival, which is
scheduled for March 13, 2010.

In other city news, Phillip Chance
of Mill Engineering attended the
Monday night meeting to present
several options for NE 10th, which
has been a problem due to flooding
since the State Rqad Department
raised and reworked SR 26 several
years ago.
The option the city commissioners
seemed to prefer was option A, which
was the recommendation from Mills
Engineering.
The plan calls for moving the busi-
ness driveways back and installing
retention swells alongside the road.
The estimate for the work was at
$50,000.
CRA money can be used to correct
the street flooding problem.
In all, four options to correct the
problem were considered ranging
from $25,000 to $92,500 in cost.
Paul Redd, who owns the property
on the comer of NE 10th Street and
Hwy. 26, told commissioners that
Monday night's meeting was the first


time he had seen the plans and he
would like to do some measuring and
see where the proposed driveways
would fall.
He also expressed concerns for the
property where the old Chinese res-
taurant was located. Redd questioned
what the new entrances would do to
the restaurant property. After much
discussion, the item was tabled until
Redd has a chance to look at all the
options.
Several blocks of downtown Tren-
ton are in the process of having their
zoning' changed from commercial
general to commercial-central busi-
ness district.
These areas include Gray Con-
struction, the BurgerSpot, and across
the street at the Old Batson and Hayes
houses as well.
Jered Ottenwess, city manager, in-
formed the city commissioners that
four new inductees to the Trenton
Hall of Fame will be presented at the
April 20 meeting. "

Christian Fellowship Community Church Pastor John Miller and
church members Larry and Evie Workman are shown with bags of
food they give out at Bell Food Pantry.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Opening a food pantry in Bell will
not only provide groceries for those
in need, but also serve as a ministry
for members of Christian Fellowship
Community Church.
According to Pastor John Miller,
his congregation decided to utilize a
mobile home that formerly served as
their church building, as a food pan-
'try and thrift shop.
Miller met with Trenton Food Pan-
try director Rick Weder last August,
and the two agreed that there was a
definite need for food distribution in
Bell.
Since opening the Bell food pantry
in March, Miller said volunteers like
Larry and Evie Workman typically
give out around eight bags of: food
each week. The brown paper bags are
filled with foods like diced tomatoes,
fruit juice, yams, black-eyed peas,
mashed potatoes, tuna and toilet pa-
-' per.' The bags are, given out on Fri-


days from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. and ar
meant to serve as a supplement fo
families in need.
On Mar. 14 volunteers from th
church worked a USDA food distri
-bution where they provided food fc
53 Gilchrist County families in neec
For now the food pantry is onl
open on Fridays, but the church hope
to add a thrift shop in the front of th
facility. In doing so, church member
plan to offer clothing at low prices
The racks for the clothing have nc
been constructed yet, but plans are t
have the racks up and the thrift sho
open within a month.
According to Ailler, the church
will use the funds generated by th
thrift shop to pay the electrical cosi
on the facility.
Anyone who wishes to obtain foe

Katie Quincey is shown with one of her Angus cows at her family's farm near the Gilchrist-Alachua
County line.

Have a question about certified an-
gus beef? Just ask Katie Quincey.
The Trenton High School llth
grader was crowned Florida Junior
Angus Association Queen at a Spring
Field 'Day and Show held in Gaines-
ville on March 14.
After giving a short speech on why
she would like to be crowned queen,
Katie was chosen by the 46 members


of the Florida Junior Angus Associa-
tion who voted on the selection.
Katie is the daughter of Steven and
Kimberly Hines. She has been show-
ing Angus cows for the last five years
including two heifers, Polly and Joy,.
which she showed at the Suwannee
2River Fair in late March. Polly was
purchased from EXPRESS Ranches
in Yukon, Oklahoma, while Joy is a


bred and owned calf, meaning the
calf was born on the Hines family
farm from one of Katie's prior show
heifers..
According to Katie, responsibilities
that come with her title as Angus As-
sociation Queen typically amount to
passing out ribbons at various shows,
but she hopes to get more involved
by promoting the angus industry.

School: Ninth grade student at
Trenton Middle-High.
Likes about school: P.E. and

Dislikes about school: My lit-

After high school: I hope to
go to college and then have my
own construction business.
Best teacher you've ever had:
Mrs. Tiffany VunCannon. She
helps me a lot with math. She tu-

that I don't do well on.
Favorite food: Steak cooked

From the
shelves of the
Bell Library
The adult book I am reading this
week is by a new .author, Susan
Rebecca White, highlighting the lives
of three females. "Bound South"
is set in Atlanta with two dominant
races of citizens.
Our poet was thrilled with the ten
individuals who attended the Poet's
Comer; they enjoyed his presentation
as he read some of his writings..There


was a poetry club in Gilchrist County
in the past. If there are members or
other writers, please make an effort
to attend the Poet's Corner next
month on the fourth Thursday and
bring, some of your, works to share.
Remember our "Moments with, the
Mayor" on the third Thursday at 7
p.m.
If you have a hobby or talent you
would like to share, please call the
Bell Library (352) 463-0043 and
leave a message for the bookworm

Heart Matters
"He is not here; he has risen!"
(John 24:6) As believers in Jesus
Christ, this week we celebrate the
empty tomb... understanding that the
price for our sin was His death. It is
remarkable that something so empty
can represent such fullness.
The Bible tells us in John 10:10
that Jesus said: -"I have come that
they may have life, and have it to the
full." In this verse, Jesus is convey-
ing to us the necessity of being filled
by the overwhelming love and for-
giveness that His death makes possi-
ble, because living in sin, doing only
what is pleasing to our self, leaves us
empty...dry...searching. As a cul-
ture, America is empty to the point
of excess. We can't eat enough, diet
"enough, drink enough, do enough
drugs, spend enough, work enough,
sleep enough, take enough medi-
cine...all excess is rooted in empti-
ness... searching to be filled. And it
is never enough. What is more, we
have learned to stay busy from morn-
ing till night to keep from dealing
with our emptiness, but it is obvious
how it deals with us.! Proverbs 27:7
says, "'He who is full loathes honey,
but to the hungry, even what is bitter
tastes sweet." How true! When we
allow God to fill us with His love and
forgiveness on a daily basis, no mat-
ter what tempting treat Satan dangles
in front of us, we are much more able
to resist...like turning down a candy
bar after a big steak dinner....it's not
that hard. But if we are empty and
looking in all the wrong places to be
filled, like a starving man, even gar-
bage will start looking good!
This emptiness is damaging to the
relationships in our life, because we
Constantly need other people to make
us feel valuable. Emotionally, we are
like beggars holding out our cup for
the people in our lives to make daily
deposits that will help to fill us. The
problem is that even those who love
us most, will at some point disap-
point us and let us down, and if our
value and worth is 'tied to their opin-
ion and their actions toward us,' we
will be in trouble. The"fullness" that
Christ brings into our life cannot be
taken away from us, no matter what
circumstances we are in or problems
that arise. If we bring our cup before
'Him. it will be filled to overflowing!:
NWe ha\e worth in"Christ that is not
measured by what we own, who we
know, what we look like, or what
we accomplish. We can rest and be
full, knowing that because the tomb
is empty. our hearts can be full. All'
we have to do is ask, because on that
first Easter morning... nothing mat-
tered more! -

The Levy County Horse Club
(LCHC) sponsored the 8th annual
Breast Cancer Awareness Benefit
Trailride during Breast CancerAware-
ness month at Goethe State Forest
and Greenways Trailhead. The ben-
efit trailride was held in conjunction
with Florida Forest and Greenways
Trail Awareness month. LCHC re-
ceived a letter from Charles Bronson,
Commissioner of Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services, stating the
Goethe State Forest was proud to be
the host site for such a worthy cause
and looks forward to working with
the LCHC with the future annual
benefit events. The event brought
a lot 'of community support. Horse
riders from many towns throughout
Florida participated, with the farthest
riders coming in from Tennessee.
The fundraiser is held each year
in order to give the proceeds to the
Shands Cancer Center for the many
items and services needed for local
breast cancer patients. The Breast
Cancer Awareness Fund has provided
women in need with practical kinds
of assistance. For example, the fund
supported a homeless woman who
underwent extensive breast cancer
surgery, treatment with medications,
and transportation. It was able to
assist another woman with dressing
supplies for wound care related to her
surgery. It helps patients with combs,
brushes, wigs, and other items that
funds aren't readily available to them.
The fund was also used to establish
the beginnings of the audiotape
library. The audiotapes are used as an
adjunct to chemotherapy and radiation
treatments to help women cope with
their treatment-related fears, side
effects, and support coping.,
The next annual event is going to
be held at the Goethe State Forest
Tidewater Trailhead on October 24,
2009. .Place this weekend date on

Neighborhood Crime
Watch learns about
identity theft
by Gail Axtail
Assistant Florida State Attorney,
Andrea Muirhead, was the featured
speaker at the Neighborhood Crime
Watch meeting at Priscilla Bap-
tist Church, Saturday, April 4. Her
comments on identity theft covered,
among other things: cautioning
against giving out Social Security
numbers unnecessarily, not disposing
of bank and credit card statements in
household trash without shredding,
and getting a credit report from the
three national credit reporting agen-
cies once a year. A lively question
and answer period followed.
After Ms. Muirhead's talk, Neigh-
borhood Crime Watch signs, for post-
ing at property entrances, were sold to
those in attendance. Gail Axtell dem-
onstrated a distress-signaling device
that, in case of a home invasion, can
be heard for a quarter mile through
trees. Any members of Neighbor-
hood Crime Watch.may call Gail Ax-
tell at 463-8275 for more information
on these items.
After a general discussion, it was
agreed to have the next meeting fo-
cus on disaster preparedness; and the
meeting then adjourned.

Wednesday Sewing at Ayers

Health and Rehabilitation


Our residents at Ayers have a lot
of fun on Wednesdays making Quil-
lows, blankets, Christmas stockings,
covered photo albums, pillow cov-
ers, and gifts for the staff during the
holidays. Our activity director will
be getting married in June. One of
our residents, Edna Kulish, helped
to make the ring bearer's pillows for
Angie's upcoming wedding. Edna
cut out the double pillows and stuffed
them really firm after they were sewn
together, just as Angie wanted them.
A crystal button and a ribbon were
sewn in the center for the rings. Our
ladies enjoy our sewing group and
we encourage them to do what they
can. They all work well in an assem-
bly line, cutting, layering, pinning,
and sewing. Our next project will


be covering frilly Easter baskets for
themselves. What fun they will have
creating their own basket. Thank you
to all who have donated material and
craft items to Ayers Health and Reha-
bilitation.

"Two things are infinite: the uni-
verse and human stupidity; and I am
not sure about the universe." Albert
Einstein
My forecast of a recession back
in February, 2007 was pre-empted
by more notable names with an op-
posite stance. The good news is that
once again I find myself taking a con-
trarian position to a veritable din of
doomsday commentary. Often based
on weak or nonexistent economic
precepts, the proponents of impend-
ing disaster alarm the populace need-
lessly as they replicate Chicken Lit-
tle's playbook.
The Fed's Term Asset-Backed Se-
curities Loan Facility (TALF), de-
signed to jolt the comatose securiti-
zation markets back to life, combined
with the $700 billion Troubled Assets
Relief Program (TARP), and the $787
billion spending and tax cut bill, sup-
ports the thesis that we will see a
light at the end of the tunnel by first
quarter 2010...and this time it will not
be an oncoming freight train.
As the various stimulus programs
gain traction they will neutralize the
devastating impact of credit default
swaps and the subprime mortgage
fiasco. Nonetheless, the housing in-
dustry will likely remain in intensive
care for some time, although there are
signs of life. The same is true for the
domestic automobile industry where
sheer size simply means the medicine
is stronger and less palatable.
The only really bad news is that
unemployment hit a 25-year-high of
8.1 percent in February and it will
continue to rise through the end of
this year, thereby slowing the recov-
ery process. Meanwhile, if talk of
uncontrollable inflation is giving you
heartburn, relax. It is unlikely to hap-
pen.
Yet, as we suffer through the cur-
rent economic conundrum, there is
an outflow of deprecating comments
designed to inflame and subsequently
hinder efforts to effectively deal with
the recession. One Congresswoman
advocates overthrowing the current
administration by force, while a ma-
jor network commentator implies
that, "FEMA was setting up concen-
tration camps." Einstein had it right,
human stupidity is boundless.
Therefore, ignore the rhetoric and
concentrate your efforts over the next
several months on taking advantage
of the greatest investment bargains to
be found on Wall Street in your life-
time.
.For example, one company that
merits consideration is the Dover


(


Aderi


By Lauren Rudd


.-
Corporation (DOV), a company best
described as a $7 billion global port-
folio of manufacturing companies. As
such, it provides a veritable Cornuco-
pia of specialty systems and support
services for a variety of applications
in the industrial marketplace.
Although not recession proof,
Dover has nevertheless managed to
raise its dividend for 53 consecutive
years, the fourth longest record on
the NYSE and its dividend payout is
only 30.45 percent of earnings.
Revenue from continuing opera-
tions for fiscal year 2008 ended De-
cember 31, was $7.57 billion, up 3
percent over the prior year. Those
earnings were the result of one per-
cent organic growth, one percent net
acquisition growth and one percent
from foreign exchange.
Earnings from continuing opera-
tions in 2008 were $694.8 million
or $3.67 per share, as compared to
$669.8 million or $3.30 the prior
year. That represents an increase of 4
percent and 11 percent respectively.
Full-year free cash flow was $835
million, or 11.0 percent of revenue.
The intrinsic value of the shares,
using a discounted earnings model
with a 13.75 earnings growth rate and
a 10 percent discount rate, is $128.
The more conservative free cash flow
to the firm model produced an intrin-
sic value of $126.
My earnings estimate for the 2009
fiscal year is $2.79 per share with a
12-month target price on the shares
of $28.50, as compared to the current
share price of $26.36, for a gain of
8 percent. There is also a 4 percent
indicated dividend yield. Dover is
scheduled to release its first quarter
2009 earnings on April 22.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


This Bowtie Quilt was made in 1920, and is still in very good condi-
tion. It is now hanging in the Quilt Museum, for all to see.


submitted by Myrtice Scabarozi
The Log Cabin Quilters met on
Thursday, April 3, at the Levy Coun-
ty Quilt Museum. We had visitors
that were getting ready to go back
north for the summer. They were so
helpful this year while we were at the
fair. The ladies worked on two quilts,
and Allian finished her Dutch 'Girl
pillow.
Derick and six young meni were


here on Tuesday. The boys straight-
ened the rock bed liners, weeded, and
cleaned the flower beds. Thanks,
Lancaster.

Tri-County Nursing yard sale for MS raised $500.

Tri-County Nursing Home joins

MS Walk


submitted by Bonnie Wilson
Multiple Sclerosis commonly
known as. MS, is an auto-immunolog-
ical disease and is currently believed
to be an immune-mediated disorder
with an initial trigger, which may
have a viral cause, although this has
been debated for years and some still
oppose it. Damage is believed to be
caused by the patient's own immune
system. The immune system attacks
the nervous system, possibly as a re-
sult of exposure to a molecule with
a similar structure to one of its own.
Patients first seeking medical atten-
tion commonly have multiple symp-
toms. The initial signs and symptoms
often do not prompt a person to seek
medical attention and are sometimes
identified only retrospectively once
the diagnosis of MS has been made.
Cases of MS are sometimes inciden-
tally identified during neurological


examinations' performed for other
causes. Such cases are referred to as ,
sub-clinical MS.
Tri-County Nursing Home, a non-
profit organization, is currently doing
a fundraiser for Multiple Sclerosis.
Our first venture was a.'ydrd sale held
on March 27. With the community.
family members, and staff we were
able. to raise about $500. We gra-
ciously wish to thank everyone who
helped with this project.
There is no known cure for this
disease. In light of this, Tri-County
Nursing Home will participate in
Gainesville for a "Walk for MS" on
Saturday, April 25, at the YMCA lo-
cated on SW Archer Road. We would
like to invite the community, neigh-
bors, families, and friends to join
us in this worthy cause to raise both .
awareness and monies to help with
.this disease. Please join us in our
fight: for a cure.

Diana's favorite Martha Washington cake.. .yum. '


Along with decorating for Easter,
making up over a hundred little Eas-
ter baskets for the residents at Ayers,
knitting, Swedish weaving, embroi-
dering, and quilting; we celebrated
the April birthdays...Kathy Fink and

So many of our members and for-
mer members are under the weather
with one thing oi another; we need
to keep them in our prayers. They
are Alberta Swanner, Ann Taylor,

t comes to the weather in
County, it seems like either
mine...too cold, too hot, not
ain, too much rain, etc., etc.


Be that as it may, eleven brave Joy-
ful Hearts met on Wednesday, April

Our "Dresden Plate" quilt is be-
ing appliqueed and our "Friendship
Garden" quilt is off the frame. Add
in all the individual projects folks
are working on and you can see that
we've been as busy as a one-armed
wallpaper hanger in a room full of
bees...so to speak. Members have
also been given an 8 1/2' x 9 1/2'
white glitter fabric block for their
personally designed Christmas Tree.
Several "gung ho'ers" have already
completed theirs and I can't even re-
member where I put mine...shame on
me.
Elaine Nemeth is back from a
month in Hawaii and we're glad to
have her back home not only be-
cause we missed her, but because
she brought back a treasure trove of
quilts, wall hangings, and samplers
that she made while visiting with
family and friends. J believe it's her
son's mother-in-law that owns a quilt
shop there. Elaine's plans include
learning to use an incredible quilt-
ing machine. Her "show and tell" in-
cluded a look at all her creations and
pictures are forthcoming.
Our next meeting is Wednesday,
April 8, and' it will be our Spring
Fling Party, so plan to attend and
bring your favorite light and springy
finger food to share.
While dyeing and hiding eggs, fill-
ing Easter baskets, and munching on

Nature Coast Garden Notes:
"My Water Bucket Runneth Over"


By Star Lara,
Nature Coast Master Gardener
I recently traveled to Bronson's Co-
operative Extension Office to attend
a Vegetable Gardening Workshop
led by Anthony Drew, Levy County
Cooperative Extension Agent. The
session was packed with folks from
the tri-county area sitting comfort-
ably while viewing the live telecast
instruction on a large movie screen.
Four specialists from the University
of Florida presented vegetable gar-
dening basics, organic gardening,
pest management and non-traditional
gardening. The latter included a sec-
tion on hydroponics. I'd like to try
growing vegetables hydroponically
as my garden area is a sand hill.
Anthony Drew presented the drip
irrigation and fertigation demonstra-
tion. One man remarked that fertiga-
tion (applying supplemental fertilizer
to a crop through the irrigation sys-
tem) interested him as he didn't feel
his vegetables got enough fertilizer.


The small dose, applied on or below
the soil surface, supplies up to a daily
feeding of minerals for each plant.
In order to protect the water supply
from contamination by fertilizers, we
learned about specific parts that must
be included in any system used for
applying fertilizer. Nutrients which
are applied with water through the
system can be controlled precisely.
During the dry season in humid
areas, or arid climates, drip or micro-
irrigation can have a significant ef-
fect on quantity and quality of yield,
pest control and harvest timing. Ad-
ditional advantages include water
savings due to irrigation of a smaller
portion of the soil volume, decreased
evaporation from the soil surface and
reduction or elimination of the run-
off. During dry seasons or in arid cli-
mates disease and insect damage can
be reduced under drip or micro-irri-
gation system since the foliage of the
plant is not wetted. Water distribution
is not affected by wind for drip irriga-


tion; however, wind can have some
effect on jet spray patterns. With all
its advantages there are some prob-
lems with the micro-irrigation sys-
tem: For more information call for
the UF micro-irrigation publications.
Additional public classes on veg-
etable, flower and turf 'grass will
be conducted during April in Yan-
keetown. There is no charge for these
classes; however, pre-registration is
required.
Upcoming public class topics in-
clude: Ground Cover, Turf grass,
and Ornamental Plants on April 14;
Vegetable Gardening and Irrigation
on April 21; and lastly, Fruit, Nuts
and Edible landscapes .on April 28.
Classes run from 9:30 until 3:30 at
the Yankeetown Woman's Club, #5
at 56th Street in Yankeetown. Bring a
sack lunch as we will break for lunch.
To pre-register and for detailed infor-
mation, call Audrey Sharp at (352)
486-5131.

ing landscape or install a new one,

Chad Schofield explains the milking process to community members
during the Community Day at North Florida Holsteins.

Many visitors attend Community Day
at North Florida Holsteins
On Saturday, March 28, 2009, several people took advantage of the Com-
munity Day at North Florida Holsteins in Bell. 147 loads of manure were
given away! Many of the visitors participated in a guided tour where they
learned that every day 3700 cows are milked 3 times each.
Each cow produces over 80 pounds of milk a day. North Florida Holsteins
fills and ships 6 tractor trailer loads of milk from their milking parlors each
day.
Guided tours are available by appointment to the general public, as well as
any organizations. If you would like to schedule a tour, please contact Laura
Schofield at 463-2662. This is a great way to see where your milk comes
from!
