New rotational grazing dairy proposed in Gilchrist County


By Carrie A. Mizell
Raising dairy heifers in rotational ul
grazing systems is still a fairly new Co
practice though it is growing in pop- Ti.
ularity because it requires a smaller on
capital investment and is more neigh- da
bor friendly. fo
Currently, Gilchrist County has pl:
two rotational grazing dairies, Pied- re
mont Dairy and Watson Dairy, both m
are leased by Ron St. John. Pending sa
approval by the Gilchrist County
Board of County Commissioners, St. va
John may be granted a variance to al- tic
low for a rotational grazing dairy at tei
Martin pivots, which is' located be- Sr
tween Trenton and Bell. be

Memorial

Day service
By Carrie A. Mizell
Memorial Day means more than
Barbecue and beer to Pete Herrick.
A Navy Reservist, Herrick was
critically injured in 200.4 during a
devastating mortar attack in Iraq that
killed five and wounded 32 others in
his unit.
"I joined the Navy Reserves when
I was 34, before that I was a self-em-
ployed carpenter," Herrick paid. "To
me Memorial Day just meant an extra
day to work and catch up on a job."
While sitting in a wheelchair and
grasping his wife Diala's hand, Her-
rick told a large group of Gilchrist
County citizens at a Memorial Day
Service on Monday that he joined,
the Navy'Reserves just six weeks be-
fore the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the
United States.
"It was my first mid-life crisis,"
Herrick said with a smile.
Despite the severe injuries Herrick
incurred during the May 2, 2004 at-
tack on his unit, NMCB 14, Herrick
told the citizens of Gilchrist County
in attendance, that he truly believes
that every citizen has an inherent
desire within them for freedom and
liberty.
"The second best decision I've
made in my life was joining the mili-
tary," Herrick said.
The first, being proposing to his
high school sweetheart, Diana Wild-
er, to whom he has been married for
over 22 years. Together the Herricks
have two children and live in Ft.
White.
"I would just like to thank everyone-
who came here today for remember-
ing all the people who have. served,"
Herrick said.,
Not only is Herrick a Purple Heart
recipient, but he was also awarded
a Navy Achievement Medal with a
"V" for valor in combat. He has also
received.the Rear Admiral Lewis B.

laborers, Smith said the dairy operates
at a much slower pace than its sister,
Alliance Dairies. Each day a pump is
run immediately after each milking to
spray waste on an 80-acre spray field,
which Smith said is run for only an
hour and a half a day, which reduces
the odor that is commonly associated
with dairies. The herd is on an 8-to
,-14 day rotation where they graze on
grass that is measured weekly and
graded to ensure that the heifers al-
ways move to fields with the highest
quality grass.
"Eighty-five percent of the cows'
time is spent grazing and 15 percent
is spent walking to and at the milking
parlor," Pete Hetherington, manager
at Southpoint Dairy said.

Circuit Administrator
Department of Children and Fami-
lies
Child abuse demands that we pay
attention and take action. As adults,
we are responsible, by law, to report
to the state Hotline when we have
reason to believe children may be
victims of abuse. The recent death of
four year-old Kristina Hepp is a ter-
rible and jarring reminder of our duty
to help safeguard all children.
Under Florida law, if you have rea-
son to suspect that a child may be the
victim of neglect, physical or sexual
abuse, you must report the case for
further investigation to the state child
abuse hotline: 1-800-96-ABUSE.
Remember, it is not up to y6u to
prove child abuse. Reports are made
by people who are concerned and re-
ports make it possible for the child
and family to get help.
Counselors answering the hotline
will ask for all the information possi-
ble about the situation you are report-
ing. It is not necessary to give your
name, but it can be helpful. During
this call, the Hotline counselor will
listen to your concerns and tell you if
your report will be accepted for an in-
vestigation. If so, a Child Protective
Investigator will go see the child to
determine if the child is safe. The law
protects the confidentiality of any
person making a report.
It's important to know that chil-
dren are hardly ever abused just
once. Rather, the abuse is the result
of patterns of behavior in a family.
The signs and symptoms may only be
apparent as time passes. Most child
abuse is committed in the home by
persons known to and trusted by the
child - family members, relatives,
baby-sitters or friends of the family.
The causes of child abuse are com-
plex, but social and personal factors
place some people at greater risk to
abuse children in their care. Some
are simply unprepared and have little
ability to manage the .challenges of
caring for a child. Other factors in-
clude: financial stress, substance or
alcohol abuse, little access to help,
a history of domestic violence in
the family or childhood abuse. Most
child fatalities from physical abuse
involve an unskilled parent or care
taker with substance abuse problems
and personal histories that include
domestic violence.
Non-accidental and inflicted inju-
ries to a child may include multiple
bruises, welts, or cuts in various stag-
es of healing or other Visible injuries.
that regularly appear onw a child. The
injuries may be unexplained or the ex-
planation offered may be inconsistent
with the injury. "The child may even"
tell you how the injury happened.
Very young children with any
marks from harsh discipline or beat-
ings may be at grave risk for seri-
ous injury. Slap marks, pinch marks,
teeth marks and grab marks all merit
reporting. Most young children get
bruises on knees, shins, elbowrs and
the forehead or midline of 'the face
that are places on the body where
the bone is close to the surface of the
skin. Active toddlers and children
often get bruises from playing. But,
bruises on the soft parts of the body,
like the thighs, the lower back, stom-
ach and on the cheek or neck should
all raise alarm signals. Any parent
or caretaker hitting a toddler with
enough force to leave bruises is a po-
tential danger to that child.
. Reporting someone for child abuse
does not mean the child will auto-
matically be removed from his or her
home. Child protective services and
the court system work to keep fami-
lies safely together by setting up ser-
vices to help the family. Emergency
shelter is used when necessary for
the safety of the child. Sometimes, if
there is a crisis, children are placed
with relatives or someone they al-
ready know, while plans are made to
keep the children safe and to offer the
family help in solving the situation.

Any child's death from abuse is a
call to attention and a call to action.
When it is a child in our community,
it is especially upsetting and unset-
tling to all of us, as it should be. Over
the next months, the Department of
Children and Families will review all
the circumstances surrounding Kris-
tina's death searching for the lessons
we can take from this tragedy to keep
other young children safe.
The real tragedy is that such deaths
are preventable. The children in- our
community rely on the caring eyes,
ears and attention of all adults to keep
them safe and to report abuse when
it is suspected. Please help by call-
ing the Department of Children and

Jones, Trenton Postmaster reported
carriers picked up a majority of the
food on Saturday.
The Senior Citizens Food Pantry
volunteers were at the Trenton Post
Office on Tuesday, May 12 to receive
food donations from postal employ-
ees. The Trenton postal carriers filled
four bins to a point they were over-
flowing on top. Each one of the bins
was estimated to be 1000 pounds of
food items.
The Bell postal carriers: Donna
Jones, Brenda Hart, Alice Cannon,
Joanna McRae, Susan Pippin, Deb-
bie Powell and Kelly Williamson re-
ceived a majority of the food items
from residents and businesses in the
Bell postal area on Saturday. The esti-
mated 3000 pounds of packaged food
goods was divided between Spring
Ridge First Church of God food pan-
try, Mt. Nebo Baptist Church food
pantry and the Senior Citizens Food
Pantry. All of these food items will
go to benefit the increasing demand
for food products in this area.
Senior Citizens Food Pantry Presi-
dent Tony Cruse reported this-is a
tremendous assistance in providing
food to a growing population of the
public in Gilchrist County.

ing to come up with ways of keeping
lower income families from moving
into or replacing their older mobile
home for a newer and safer mobile
home in Gilchrist County. They
want to push aside these affordable
living structures and make site built
homes the focal point to aesthetically
enhance the area and increase the tax
base. The problem is that most folks
here cannot afford site built homes
and the property taxation that goes
with them.
Let me go on and quote page 8,
paragraph three under Recommenda-
tions: "The. County should stream-
line permitting and building inspec-
tion processes to the greatest extent'
while still maintaining high standards
of quality and safety." Who writes
this stuff?
This is just another way of saying
"We are going to be watching over
your property." "We are going to be
more Bureaucratic." This is going to
be more expensive." "Your permits
are going to be more expensive."
"You don't really have the freedoms
of land use that you think you do."
"We will find'more ways in the future
to run up the charges in the building
arena."
Now I thought about this for
awhile and realized that some mem-
bers of the committee are obviously
not in tune with the strict standards
of the State of Florida's mobile home
set up requirements. I do agree that
some of the older' homes set up prior
to the early nineties are not anchored

Believe In What Is Right
(Kent Heaton)


In the book of Daniel, three young men are put to a
great test of character as they stood before the King of
Babylon in defiance to a decree that will cost them their
lives. Nebuchadnezzar had made an image of gold nearly
ninety feet tall in the plain of Dura and commanded all
people to fall down and worship the image at the sound of
various forms of music. When the time came, all the
"people, nations and languages fell down and worshiped
the gold image which King Nebuchadnezzar had set up"
(Daniel 3:7). In the midst of this great throng of bodies
bowing down in worship three men remained standing and
refused to bow. The penalty for rebellion, was clear.
"Whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast
immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace"
(Daniel 3:6).
Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah were Hebrew slaves
taken from their homeland in the invasion of Judah by
Babylon. They had been placed in the king's palace to
serve and learn the language and literature of the
Chaldeans. We know them best by their Chaldean names
of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego. Brought before
King Nebuchadnezzar the king gave them a second chance
to reconsider their refusal to bow down and worship the
image. Their reply was clear and demonstrative. "O0
Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this
matter. If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able
to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will
deliver us from your hand, 0 king. But if not, let it be
known to you, 0 king, that we do not serve your gods,
nor will we worship the gold image which you have set
up"(Daniel-3:16-18).
The three Hebrews were cast into the furnace but
through the grace of God delivered without the hair of
their hair singed nor were their garments affected, and the
smell of fire was not on them (Daniel 3:27). God used
their faith to show the king of Babylon who "rules in the


kingdom of men" (Daniel 4:17). This remarkable story of
courage is one fitting for our young people to embrace, as
they graduate High School and begin the challenging walk
of life.
Two things stand out in this story: first, the importance
of believing in something; secondly, the need of believing
in the right thing. Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego did
not go along with the crowd. It was not their life's aim to
be like everyone else. They believed in something and not
only believed it but were willing to disobey the law of the
king because of what they believed in.
It is easy to go along with everyone else and be like the
crowd. When the music began to play in the plain of Dura,
thousands of people fell down to worship the image.
Consider how odd they felt to be the only ones standing.
Literally, everyone was bowing but these three men. They
could have fallen down and who would have noticed?
They possessed a belief system that challenged the moral
code of the day. Young people, you must possess a system
of belief to find happiness in life that will set you apart.
Following the crowd will get you no where (Matthew
7:13,14).
Having a belief system is not enough - you have to
believe in the right thing. They refused to worship the
image because it was wrong. They stood for what was
right because they stood for what God taught them. They
served the Lord and not man (Acts 4:19,20; 5:29). As
young people going out into the world, you must believe in
the right thing and the only thing that is right is what is
found in God (John 17:7). True happiness will not be
found in bowing down to the music of the day. It will only
come from standing for God in the face of great opposition
to the norms of today. If your life is going to make a
difference it must be made with the Lord as your guide and
compass (John 14:6). .

A friend sent the following "'You

in the sunshine state.
You might be a Floridian if...
"Down South" means Key West.
"Panhandling" means going to

and church.
No, wait, flip flops are good for

You know why flamingos are

You think a six-foot alligator is ac-
tually pretty average.
You were sixteen before you ever
saw snow or you still haven't.
Tornadoes/Tornado warnings don't

SVL Bolts Battled for the Championship Trophy
It all started on Friday, May 22
when the SVL Bolts played in their
first All-star tournament of the sea-
son, the 2009 3rd annual Branford
Invitational 8U Championship. The
Bolts faced Ft. White in a warm up
match and won. We refer to that
game as a warm up because from .
there on the Bolts were unstoppable. 00/p
On Saturday, the Bolts faced Taylor .'"
County where they were the visitors
and started off the first inning with 6
runs. The Bolts showed off their of- - .
fensive and defensive skills by domi- "
nating Taylor County with an ending"
score of 13-2. This victory placed
the Bolts in the top seed of the Tour-
nament. On Sunday, the Bolts had to
face Taylor County again. This time
they decided to play ball and gave
us a little run for our money. How-
ever, this was nothing that the Bolts
couldn't handle. The Bolts won again
17-6. Later that afternoon the Bolts
played in the Championship game
against Branford. The Bolts were
ready for the hard hits to the outfield,
their pop flies and their great defense.
The Bolts knew what they had to do
to beat this team and they gave it
their all. In the end the Bolts were
the ones who wanted that trophy and Front Row: Colton Hastings, Daveon Love, Colton Rawlins, Cole Hafner, Daniel Plank, Logan Akins, and Bryson
they played the game of a lifetime. Johnson. :Middle Row: Terek Liles, Brayden Dukes, Sammie Loveday, Trevin Dukes, and Brandon Douglas. Back
Both teams started the first inning Row: Coach Jason Johnson, Coach Jim Akins, and Coach Leo Sache.
by scoring, Branford-4 Bolts-1.
That's okay because the Bolts were
just getting warmed up; despite some
bad calls the Bolts decided to domi-
nate Branford with some awesome
defense, hard ground balls, bunts,
and some aggressive base running.
When the battle was over the Bolts
were the one left standing with the
trophy. The final score was 13-10.
It was the hard work of the team, the
encouragement of the coaches, and
the enthusiasm in our fans that lead
us to victory. Great job boys and this
is just the beginning, watch out the
Bolts are on the loose!!!

Heart Matters


Congratulations Graduates! For
many students, this week marks
the celebration of a long-awaited
achievement, as well as the begin-
ning of a new challenge: "What will
1 do with my life?" Some of you
have carefully mapped out plans,
while others are still struggling for
answers. In your search, consider
the words of Jeremiah 6:16: "This is
what the Lord says:
"Stand at the crossroads and look:
ask for the ancient paths,.ask where
the good way is, and walk in it, and
you will find rest for your souls..."
You now stand at one of the biggest
crossroads of your life. Graduation is
the end of a path that began years ago
as you left Mom and Dad to climb
onto the school bus and walk into the
classroom on your own. N6w is the.
time to celebrate.. .with an eye to the
future.
Stand at this crossroad and look.
At a crossroad, or intersection, you
make your decision about which way
to go based on where you want to end
up: Consider what you have learned
about life and about yourself, and
look for the good way that leads to
your future. The right path for living
is marked out by God, but it requires
careful searching to uncover. The
popular, easier path is always going
to be offered and it will be tempting,
but know that it leads to a dead-end
life...when we ignore God's map we
lose our way.
Ask where the good way is and
walk in it. Once' you get a glimpse
of that good way, don't get"frustrated
if you can't see the whole plan right
now...start with one step...it may be
that you find the directions for the
next step on the way. Get going.. .a
tiny rudder can turr a huge ship, but'
only if it is moving. Be confident
that God has a plan for your life. In
Ephesians 2:10 the Bible tells us "For
, we are God's workmanship, created
in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for
us to do." That word "workmanship"
also means "masterpiece"... one of a
kind! God created you uniquely for a
specific purpose...to do good works.


The kicker is that He has prepared
them "in advance" for you to do. All
we have to do is follow His map to
find them!
Find rest for your souls...Of all
the things I could hope and pray for
you.. .this is it. In a world full of un-
rest, strife and lack of peace, having
rest for your soul is priceless, and
it only comes from being in right
standing with the One who created
you. Notice that this rest comes as
a result of standing, looking, asking,
and walking... with Him. Your life
consists of the time between your ap-
pointed birth and death... how will
you spend it? Choose carefully.. .be-
cause your heart (and your life) mat-
ters!
Congratulations and Blessings!

Mary Jo Mansfield and her
mighty membership committee re-
ally outdid themselves for the last
meeting of the season. They had
fresh flowers, decorations, candles,
fine china and more, making us all
feel that we were "putting on the
Ritz." The meal was superb, as al-
ways, and following that, we had
the installation of the new officers
and committee chairs for the 2009-
.10 year for the Gilchrist Woman's
Club, presided over by our very
own Lois Scott, who is our expert
on parliamentary procedure (with a
sense of humor). We welcome the
forthcoming year's group of ladies,
and we will introduce them in next
week's newsletter.
The pork plate luncheon was a
big hit and allowed us to reach our
financial goal of funding two schol-
arships through the Gilchrist Educa-
tional Foundation. The two young
ladies receiving the scholarships
are Katelyn Turner of Trenton and
Kara Cannon of Bell. Sharon Bard
will present those scholarships on
behalf of the G.W.C. on the gradua-
tion night for each of the respective
schools. Thank you all so much for.
helping contribute to this commu-
nity effort. Gwen Walden was un-
able to attend our last meeting, so
we'll need to put our heads together,
to recognize all those special folks
that aided us, as she was in charge
of most of the event's preparation.
Thank you, Gwen, for taking con-
trol of the situation and making it so
successful.
Donna Hayes is collecting dues-
for next year, so contact her at either
352-472-7455 or 352-226-0141, if
you wish to sign-up and pay in ad-
vance. It's well worth the $30 in-,
vestment, and you can't find a more
diversified group of ladies that work
hard in our community and still
have fun together in doing so.
In closing, I would like to per-

Florida Crown Workforce Board
Receives Florida Literacy Award


A highlight of the recent 25th An-
nual Florida Literacy Conference
was the presentation of the Florida
Literacy Awards given annually to
outstanding individuals, businesses
and organizations making significant
contributions to adult and family lit-
eracy.
The Conference was sponsored
by the Florida Literacy Coalition,
Florida's Adult and Family Literacy
Resource Center. The May 7 Awards
Banquet, held at the Belleview Bilt-
more Hotel in Clearwater, featured
best selling author Tom Dorsey as the
evening's keynote speaker.
It was the Florida Literacy Coali-
tion's pleasure to recognize Lake
City based Florida Crown Workforce
Board as the recipient of the Out-
standing Business Partner Award.
This award honors a company or
business partner for leadership or
significant contributions in support
of literacy at. the local, regional or
�tate level.
Florida Crown Workforce Board
(FCWB) is in their business of sup-
porting and matching job applicants
in need of competitive and sustain-
able work with employers seeking
qualified, skilled labor.
The partnership that Florida Crown
has developed with Columbia Coun-
ty Vocational, Adult and Community
Education (VACE) as well as other


community agencies, has helped to
insure high quality and well integrat-
ed services in their community.
Florida Crown has enthusiasti-
cally provided support in. areas such
as; 1) underwriting the costs for an
adult education instructor, 2) pro;
viding regular orientations to help
students understand career options,
3) supporting the Florida Ready to
Work Credentialing program, and 4)
helping adult education and literacy
students obtain jobs .and employment
skills. When young adults have hit
brick walls in locating jobs, Florida
Crown has been able to help these
individuals connect with potential
employees.
The support provided from Florida
Crown Workforce Board has also
been instrumental in helping Colum-
bia County VACE realize increased
enrollment, larger numbers of stu-
dents getting a GED, and a higher
rate of .GED graduates transitioning
to postsecondary institutions.' .
Florida Crown's professional con-
nections with community members,
business partners, social service pro-
viders, and school district personnel
have fostered the development of
strong and committed partnerships
which have greatly benefited the citi-
zens of Columbia County.
Accepting the award for Florida
Crown Workforce Board was Kaye
Johnson.

Bruce Flying - The Blackhawk helicopter comes in for a landing on
the BES track.

The Sky is the Limit at BES


By Ashley Jones
Students at Bell Elementary School
enjoyed a whirlwind day filled with
endless possibilities for themselves.
Celebrating their annual Career Day
last Friday, students at BES were able
to see many different career paths
that they might want to choose for
their future.
The children spent the day rotat-
ing through the many presenters' sta-
tions around campus. These included
everything from a photographer to a
karate instructor and a race car driver
to a'dairy farmer. Perhaps the most
anticipated arrival of the day was the
Blackhawk Helicopter presentation
by the US Army.


Band members and families feasted
on goodies provided by our parents
following the ceremony. We would
.like to thank Elaine Lagasse, Dena
Griffith and Stephbn Cutts for your
decorations and food setup.
Lisa Boutwell
Publicity


With their eyes to the skies, stu-
dents watched the Blackhawk piloted
by CW4 Bruce McCormick and 1LT
Daniel Cedillo land on the track. The
crew members were SSG Tommy Za-
wizsa and SPC Jonathan Dick. Then
each class went to a demonstration
at the famed helicopter and students
even got to try on some Army gear.
Career Day 2009 was a huge suc-
cess at Bell -Elementary. BES would
like to send a sincere thank you to
each of the over 25 presenters for
giving their time to inspire these stu-
dents. With all of these exciting ca-
reer possibilities, the sky really is the
limit!

Santa Fe River Cleanup
Join us at the Santa Fe River on
May 30 for a cleanup around the
Rum Island area. Please meet El-
. liot Hart at the Rum Island Park at
9 a.m. This will be a canoe cleanup
so we will need firm commitments
from those wishing to volunteer and
use one of the canoes that Santa Fe
Canoe Outpost is providing for our
use. There will be a limited number
of spots available, unless you choose
to bring your own boat, and you are
certainly welcome to do. that.
Bring along a water bottle and be
sure to wear clothes and shoes that
can get wet and dirty. Close-toed
shoes are always best. If you wish to
,work with gloves on, you will need
to count on bringing your own. You
might also want to remember sun-
screen, bug repellent, and a hat. We
will try to finish up by noon as usual.
I hope you can come. It's a great
time of the year to be out on the river,
and you'll be doing the river a great
service, as -,trash from the Memo-
rial Day weekend will undoubtedly
have accumulated. You will also be
helping to keep that trash out of the
aquifer and the ocean. So let me hear
from you by Thursday, May 28 if you
plan to come help.

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
for the City of Trenton, FL
PWSID# 2211188
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Repoht. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to
provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We
are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is drawn'ground water from two wells. The wells draw water from the Floridan aquifer and the water is then chlorinated for
disinfection purposes.
In 2008 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of
contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are eight potential sources of contamination identified for this system with high susceptibility level. The assessment results are available on the FDEP
Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Jered Ottenwess at (352) 463-4000. We encourage our valued, customers to be informed about their water utility.
If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first and third Mondays of each month beginning at 5:30 pm at City Hall in the Kathryn Deen
Commission Chambers.
The City of Trenton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2008. Data obtained before January 1,2008, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the
laws, rules, and regulations. . ,
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of
microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the
use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) - one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
( Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pag/1) - one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) - measure of the radioactivity in water.

** Results in the Level Detected column for radiological contaminants and inorganic contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level
at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious fiealth problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with.
service lines and home plumbing. City of Trenton is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has
been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in
your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or
at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead

The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production,
mining, or fanning.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations,
urban stonrmwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) . Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by.public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.

Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy,
persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people
should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological
contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

We at the City of Trenton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are conunmmitted to insuring the quality of
your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

Street ise By Lauren Rudd


Memorial Day has come and gone
once again. For many it was simply a
aay off from work and a time to drag
out the barbeque grill for the season's
first. summer party. However, for
others it was a somber reminder of
friends who' sacrificed their lives in
the name of freedom.
Regrettably, the devastating impact
of armed conflict has a way of fad-
ing from memory. Few are left who
can recount the untold' horrors of the
Holocaust. A younger but graying
generation pushes remembrances of,
the sickening sweet smell of Napalm
and burning flesh ever deeper into the
dark recesses of their minds.
Nonetheless, the jarring impact of
seeing young soldiers with scared
faces and missing limbs not only
unleashes a gushing torrent of emo-
tion, but hopefully will also act as a
constant reminder of the seemingly
never ending violence and bloodshed
that takes place across the globe in
the name of security, peace, tranquil-
ity...oh, and yes religion.
If you saw Vietnam, Afghanistan
or Iraq regurgitate the remains of

your friends and classmates then Me-
morial Day cannot help but be a day
of particular significance. Neverthe-
less, for all of us it should be a time
to remember and honor those who
have been called upon to make the
ultimate sacrifice.
You are probably wondering how
those comments relate to investing
on Wall Street. They do not...except
to point out that in today's world it
is especially important that we focus

not just on what we want but also on
what we can give back.
Traditionally, this is also the time
of the year when I discuss the subject
of when and what to sell. For exam-
ple, simply holding unrealized profits
is never a reason to sell. Too often the
issue of when to sell is treated in er-
roneously general terms such as, "the
market is going up, sell," or "the mar-
ket is going down, sell."
Deciding when to sell is the single
most difficult, decision any investor
has to make. 'Moreover, I would be
the first to agree that it often takes
super human strength to decide the
matter dispassionately. Given that it
is Memorial Day weekend, I again
suggest you contemplate the words
penned over a century ago by Cathe-
rine Lee Bates in the song, "America
the Beautiful." She wrote, "Confirm
thy soul in self control."
Although the financial markets of
the past two years have demonstrat-
ed unmercifully that the traditional
multi-year buy and hold strategy has
to be reevaluated, continually turning
over your portfolio will often result
in profitless whipsawing. And never
let others, especially those who stand
to receive a commission, make the
decision for you.
Instead, take your queue from the
various trends that are embedded in
the economy as evidenced by the
data in ongoing economic reports.
You then translate those trends into
specific sectors from which you se-
lect your candidates. Remember that
a portion of any unrealized profit be-
longs to Uncle Sam. As long as you
do not sell, you can continue to use
his' money to enhance your gains...
interest free,
Now I know what.you are asking
yourself, what do I recommend sell-
ing? Last year at this time I suggested
General Motors and Citigroup. Mo-
torola also made the list of those with
a sad story of incompetent manage-
ment. ' ,.
Yet, this year is different. The
economy is on the road to recovery
and I look for solid improvement by
2010. Therefore, now is probably a
time to be buying .stocks, not sell-
ing them. Several weeks ago I faced
down the soothsayers of doom and
recommended you look at" Bank of
America. The shares have nearly tri-
pled since then.
However, be careful of compa-
nies whose fortunes are tied to ris-
ing employment, such as the housing
industry. Unemployment will de-
cline but there is a considerable lag
time in comparison to the rest of the
economy. Another caution would be

The Trenton Rotary ,Club is going
to sponsor a long term Rotary Youth
Exchange student from Germany for
the 2009-2010 school year.
The student from Germany whose
name is Malte Smoor is 17 years old
and lives in Meppen, Niedersachsen,
Germany.
Malte's father is a Presbyterian
minister in their hometown and his
mother is a school teacher.
Malte is a musician; he plays the
bass fiddle, and he has a special inter-
est in theater.
He has excellent grades in school
and he speaks and writes English
very well.
The long term Rotary Youth Ex-
change spends the entire school year
here in Gilchrist County taking the
same curriculum that one of our stu-
dents would take.
Because the school year is so long
and in order to make the exchange
more interesting and diverse for the
foreign student, they live with three
different families while they are here
in Gilchrist County.
The Trenton Rotary Club is look-
ing for three host families for Malte
while he is here and while it is not
required that the host families have
school aged children in the home the
club is hoping to find at least two out
of the three host families that do have
a male high school student that is ei-
ther a junior or senior in high school
at either Bell or Trenton schools.
Host families are not compensated
monetarily but what a great cultural
and learning experience it is for the
hosts.
If you think that you might be inter-
ested, please call one of our Interna-
tional Service Committee members,
either Michael Faught (352) 463-
2380 work or (352) 221-0101 cell or
Ed Philman (352) 463-3400.

The lagoon in which waste from the milking parlor at Southpoint Dairy goes into is small compared to the
size of a lagoon at a conventional free stall dairy such as Alliance Dairies.,


A look at Southpoint Dairy, which is located in Levy County, is considered a profile of what the proposed
rotational grazing dairy would look like.


much different from the short term
exchange that several local families
are familiar with.
The Trenton Rotary Club has ar-
ranged for several short term stu-
dent exchanges with Germany over
the past few years. They have been
very successful and rewarding for the
families that have participated.


The short term exchange program
has our students travelling to Ger-
many to live with a German student
and their family for three weeks in
the summer.
The: German student travels back
to the United States with our student
to spend three weeks here with his or
her partner family.
