Tax collector calls


new rate increases


'unprecedented'


By Carrie A. Mizell
Lines were backed up all the way
down the courthouse on Monday as
residents waited to renew their tags
and titles at the Gilchrist County Tax
Collector's office prior to an unprec-
edented statewide rate increase that
took effect Tuesday.
Marilyn Bruce, Gilchrist County
tax collector, reported that her office
had taken in $43,726.46 in tag and
title renewals on Monday, which is a
drastic climb from the office's typical
fiscal day, which typically accounts
for $5,000 to $6,000.
The new fees, which were passed
by the Florida Legislature in the
spring, include an increase in stan-
dard driver's license renewals from
$27 to $48, initial vehicle registra-
tions up from $100 to $225, and title
fees increased from $24 to $70. State
lawmakers believe the estimated $2.2
billion the new fees generate will be.
used to fill a budget shortfall.
"Usually the fees are raised a few
dollars, but nothing like this," Bruce
said. "People just don't have the
money for this."
The tax collector said her office was
unusually busy last week as citizens
started getting their tags and titles re-
newed prior to the rate increase. On
Friday, the four office clerks reported
doing $28,033.25 worth of renewals.
"This is just unprecedented! They
[the rates] have never been raised by
this magnitude," said Bruce, who has
worked in the Gilchrist County Tax
Collector's Office since 1976.
According to. Bruce, the state's

Revised Oak Tree Landing development


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Planning
Commission heard a presentation last
week from Stiles Partnership involv-
ing the amended Oak Tree Landing
development in northeast Gilchrist
and southwest Alachua counties
along CR 232.
The amended development plan
now identifies Oak Tree Landing as
a Rural Florida Destination Village
that is intended to provide Gilchrist
County with resort-based economic
development opportunities in rural
and agricultural lands. A Gilchrist
County RFD shall provide a second
home and visitor destination com-
munity to those visitors interested in
a Florida Rural Village 'experience.
The presentation was made to the
Planning Commission for informa-
tional purposes. There was no action
taken by the Planning Commission
involving this proposal.
A Rural Florida, Destination must
contain a clustered, energy efficient
land use. pattern with a large mix of
uses. Within this residential area, 50
percent of the residences must be
within 1300 feet of a public square,
and 70% of total land must be desig-
nated as open areas. The rural village
must be located on a transportation
node for easy access to metropolitan
areas and interstate highways. The
area must provide a centrally man-
aged pool of rental housing and a
150-foot 'wide perimeter buffer and
central water and wastewater sys-
tems.
The Stiles Partnership group is
working with Gilchrist County Plan-
ning staff and the Florida Department
of Community Affairs to present this.
concept as an amendment to the Gil-
christ County Comprehensive Plan
as a future land use amendment, text
amendment and have it approved by
the Gilchrist County Board of Com-
missioners. A time and date for the
county commission meeting to con-
sider the planned amendment has not
been released.
The Oak Tree Landing develop-
ment is still identified as an 815 to-
tal acre project including Gilchrist
and Alachua counties. The project
is 13 miles northeast of Trenton and
7 miles south of High Springs and 8
miles north of Newberry.
The Vision the Oak Tree Landing
is seeking is to create a resort based
second home community which
would promote Eco-Tourism of the
surrounding nature based area. The
development will have a 5000 foot
paved airstrip that will provide air
traffic to planes up to small jets.
This development in Gilchrist
County which borders SE 80th Av-
enue up to CR 232 is proposed to be

property by the development group.
The development will also have a
fire station and emergency medical
service station in the development.
There will also be a church building
in the development. The Gilchrist
County impact from this project is
reported to be a $5 million property
tax and a $3 million impact fees tax
when the development is completed.
The developer also agreed to use lo-
cal contractors and business people
when the local community made
these professional people available.
The project will also provide many
jobs to the people in this area.
The development is proposing to

and an 18-hole Maverick .gold de-
signed championship golf course and

will also have a Wimbledon style ten-
nis facility with amenities including
a spa, gym, and dining for the public.
The development improvements now
include a sporting clay range, eques-
trian center and trail ride system. The
development will also have miles of
recreation trails for walking, running
and cycling. A winery and other agri-
cultural processing facilities'are also
identified in the planning. Included
will be a fine arts school associated
with the University of Florida, the
community colleges and the local
schools districts, for the students in

the area. The development will also
include a neighborhood commercial
park along with an inn, hotel, bread
and breakfast and a centralized rental
pool.
This newly designed development
is patterned along the lines of Stein-
hatchee Landing, a rural Florida des-
tination village that is located along
the banks of the Steinhatchee River
in Taylor County.
The next' meeting involving this
proposed development has not been
made public. The board and the pub-
lic asked several questions in the
Planning Commission meeting. They
were assured a complete plan would
be available for public review in a fu-
ture meeting.


Fanning Springs halts plans for a wastewater treatment plant


By Carrie A. MizelI
Fanning Springs Mayor Cheryl
Nekola announced Tuesday that the
city's plans to build a $6.3 million
wastewater treatment plant have
been put on hold.
According to Nekola, the city re-
ceived word this week that the loan
to grant ratio, which city officials
anticipated being 50/50, fell well
below their expectations,
"We are putting things on hold,"
Nekola said. "Without the grant


money it would make the project too
costly for the citizens."
Nekola said city officials will wait
until next year to approach the is-
sue of a wastewater treatment plant
again.
At a public meeting held on Aug.
25, a number of Fanning Springs res-
idents and business owners expressed
concern over the project.
According to Nekola, the city has
secured a $600,000 Community De-
velopment Block Grant for the proj-


ect.
The mayor also said that 40 acres
along 170th Street is under contract
as a possible site for the facility.
Residents who live alongside the
proposed site were upset over the
prospect of the wastewater treat-
ment plant decreasing home values
in the neighborhood,
"I hoped people would come to
the meeting with an open mind,"
Nekola said. "But they just would
not believe what the engineer said."

On Friday, August 14, Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation Center had their
annual "Back to school water day"
for the children and grandchildren of
the partners who work at Ayers.
Starting at 7 a.m. with breakfast for
our early birds, by 9 a.m. it was time
to start with golf ball relay. Each
child put a golf ball on a spoon and
raced to see which line finished first.
What fun they all had.
Games continued with cowboy
cheerleader race, dress-up, .bingo,
parachute volleyball, sidewalk chalk,
and coloring tablecloths for lunch.
One game after another, just about
wore the partners out.
Our young people were still rar-
ing to go with a great picnic lunch
that our dietary staff put together of
corndogs, chips, juice and ice cream
(yummy, yummy).
After lunch, the children put their
bathing suits on to go up on the enor-
mous waterslide we had for them.
What fun our residents had watch-
ing the children slide down the slide,
not to mention the children visiting
with all the grandmas and grandpas
at Ayers.
Though we had raindrops in the
afternoon, everyone had a great time
here at Ayers for our annual water-
day.
There is nothing like young people
and pets to make our residents' day
here at Ayers.
Thank you to all the partners that
put this wonderful day together for

SSplish Splash! Kids of alleges were having a ball at the Splash Park.


. As summer comes to a close, my
'daughter, Allie Claire, is enjoying
,pvery.minute she can spend in the
.~water. Thanks to my good, friend,
',Crystal we enjoyed spending an hour
:at the City of Alachuia's Splash Spray
'Park on Monday morning.
Free and open to the public, the
'spray park is geared to children ages
'0 to 5. The park has no swimming
pool, which eliminates the risk of
drowning. It does have several nice
water features that shoot water up
in the air only to come down in tiny
,droplets, as well as a bucket feature
that dumps water periodically from
yed plastic buckets onto the heads of
unsuspecting children.
The park, which officially opened
in March has quickly become a hit
in Alachua, reported Hal Brady, the
,director of recreation and parks.
Funds for the spray park came from
the City of Alachua, Alachua County,
7FRDAP and CDBG funding, Brady
explained. He als5' pointed out that
the spray park cost $145,000, which
combined with the City's skateboard
park project totaled $291,000.
Brady said that the park utilizes.
recycled water, which makes it inex-
pensive to run. He also explained that
due to the spray park's overwhelming
success the city is currently working
on writing grant applications to hope-
fully expand the spray park within the
next two years. If the funding comes
through, Brady said new water fea-
tures will be added and the spray park
will be widened and made longer un-
der plans for Phase 2 of the project.
We had such a good time at the


spray park! I would highly recom-
mend it to anyone who has small
children and is looking for something
fun and FREE to do with the kids..
The spray park is open daily from 9
a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and is located at the
Hal Brady Recreation Center, which
is at 14300 NW 146th Terrace in Ala-
chua.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The Gilchrist County Planning
Commission took action to approve
a Special Use Permit application,
SUP 09-11 in the Monday, August
24 meeting. What makes this request
so unique is that the applicant told
the board that he needed the permit
in order for him to be able to park a
Recreational Vehicle, "camping trail-
er" on the property to be used for his
convenience.
I don't routinely attend the Plan-
ning Commission meetings, but I
wanted to hear the presentation in-
volving a Special Use Permit for a
Dog Kennel and the presentation for
information involving the revised
Oak Tree Landing development.
When I read the agenda, I didn't
know the applicants, Jim and Carol
Pogue. I didn't know where the pro-
posed SUP was located or anything
about this area. After I sat in the meet-
ing and listened to this presentation,
I could tell that the identified use of
a Special Use Permit for a camping
trailer was not the best consideration
for this particular piece of property in
an Environmentally Sensitive, flood
plane of the Santa Fe River.
The applicant told the board that
prior to the flood in the spring of 2009,
there was a house standing on wood
poles on the property. When the flood
currents came through, it pushed the


poles over and the older structure fell
to the ground. Neighbors in the area
report there has not been anyone liv-
ing in the house for years.
I understand the Pogues, the own-
ers of the property, received funds
from FEMA due to the house being
destroyed in the storm. I also under-
stand there is a septic tank on the
property that has not been used in
years, but I understand the applicant
intends to use the tank in the future.
Mr. Pogue told the board that he
needed to place the camping trailer
on the property, but he didn't know
when he would be able to afford to
begin building a structure on the
property.
Neighbors that reside in the Ira
Bea's Oasis residential area stepped
to the podium and asked the Planning
Commission to not permit this camp-
ing trailer in their neighborhood.
They further more pointed out that-
residential restrictions in this area did
not allow a mobile home or camping
trailer to be placed in this area.
After hearing from several of these
residents, I was very surprised that
the Commission went ahead and ap-
proved this Special Use Permit for
this applicant who did not clearly tell
the Planning Commission the entire
truth involving this property and its
use.

Bring Out The Blind People Who Have Eyes
(Kent Heaton)

The children of Israel struggled with idolatry and through heart. While a few religions today still engage in idol


the prophets were warned about their involvement with
other gods. Their rebellion went to the, heart of the Law of
Moses that forbids worship of idols. "You shall have no
other gods before Me. You shall not make to yourselves
any graven image, or any likeness of anything that is in
the heavens above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that
is in the water under the earth" (Exodus 20:3-4). Jehovah
forbade bowing down to idols and yet the people allowed
the influence of the nations around them to corrupt their
allegiance to the one true God. The prophet Isaiah cried out
to the nation of Israel to "Bring out the blind people who
have eyes, and the deaf who have ears" (Isaiah 43:8).
. The futility of idol worship is described by Isaiah in
Isaiah 44. It is absurd for man to take a tree and use part of it
to warm him, part of it to cook his food and then a
remaining part he bows down to worship as his god to
deliver him (Isaiah 44:9-17). The totem often is nothing
more than a representation of what man lo'ks like himself.
But the eyes of the idol cannot seq nor do the ears hear.
Those who worship an idol are the mirror of the idol itself as
they have eyes but cannot see the uselessness of idol
worship and ears but cannot hear the truth of Jehovah God.
Isaiah is crying out for the people to open their eyes and
open their ears. They have the capability of seeing and
hearing but refuse to do so (Isaiah 42:18-20).
Rebellion is at the heart of idol worship. "Son of man,
you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes
to see and see not. They have ears to hear and hear not,
for they are a rebellious house" (Ezekiel 12:2). The heart of
man rebels against the worship of the one true God. "You
shall not bow yourself down to them, nor serve them. For I
Jehovah your God am a jealous God" (Exodus 20:5).
When man worships man Jehovah is left out. Man creates
his own law and his own righteousness. Man worships man.
The law of God is rejected because man wants to set his
mind upon his own will.
Idol worship is not a problem of the eye or ear but of the

The search for a Crystal River
man, missing since Tuesday, August
18, ended the next day when Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) officers located
his body.
Theodore R. Edwards III, 49, left
the Highway 40 boat ramp in Yan-
keetown on the Withlacoochee River
to go fishing Tuesday at 7:30 a.m. He
was operating a 1996 17-foot Polar
aluminum vessel and was scheduled
to return by 1 p.m.
His mother, Barbara L. Wollard,
returned to the boat ramp at the ap-
pointed time to pick him up. When
he did not return, Wollard called the
Coast Guard for help.
According to FWC investigators,
the Coast Guard requested FWC's
assistance for a search and rescue
later that evening. Personnel from the
FWC, the Coast Guard and the Levy
County Sheriff's Office continued
the search effort throughout Tuesday
night and into Wednesday.
At approximately 1 p.m. Wednes-
day, FWC officers located Edwards'
body in the Gulf of Mexico about 11
miles west-northwest of Chamber Is-
land at the mouth of the Withlacooch-
ee River. The victim was transported
to the FWC's Crystal River Field Of-
fice by vessel and then to the Medical
Examiner's Office in Leesburg.
Edwards' boat has not been
located. The FWC is investigating
the incident.

Hidde
I returned Sunday evening from a
10-day trip to the West. High school
friend Beth Davis of Cedar Key and I
made our second trip to the Cowgirl
Quilt Retreat at the 9 Quarter Circle
Ranch in Montana.
We landed at the Jackson Hole
Airport in Wyoming on Friday, Au-
gust 21. We spent some time in the
many shops in downtown Jackson
Hole during the afternoon. Saturday
morning we attended the local farm-
ers market which is held in the down-
town square. If you have ever been to
Jackson, it is the famous park in the
center of town that has huge elk ant-
ler arches on each corner of the park.
It was wonderful to have a chance
to purchase fresh pulled carrots and
just picked sugar peas. The Wyoming
gardening season is so different than
ours. Quite a bit of the fresh produce
came from across the Tetons in Idaho.
They had beautiful buckets of flow-
ers including bright orange buckets
of sunflowers.
Beth and I went away with a won-
derful homemade zucchini muffin
and steaming cups of coffee as well
as a bag full of fresh vegetables and
fruit.
Later we went to the National
Museum of Wildlife Art just outside
Jackson and viewed the many won-
derful paintings and bronze sculp-
tures. During the afternoon we drove
south to Pinedale, Wyoming and
visited their local quilt shop and a
couple of western clothing stores. On
our way we passed a great deal of flat
land covered with sage and grasses.
Apparently this terrain was perfect
for antelopes because we saw sev-
eral hundred on our way to and from
Pinedale.
Sunday morning we ate break-
fast at the famous Jedediah's Origi-
nal House of Sourdough where we
feasted on whole wheat pancakes and
bacon.
Then we headed to the Grand Teton
National Park. We went to Antelope
Flats and looked at the homes on
Mormon Row. We also came across
several herds of bison aka buffalo.
Then we drove to the Episcopal Cha-
pel of the Transfiguration which is a
small log cabin church. The window
behind the altar inside frames the in-
credible Cathedral Peaks of the Grand
Teton. Built in 1925, the chapel still
functions as an Episcopal church and
is operated by St. John's Episcopal
Church in Jackson, Wyoming.
Then we walked over to Menor's
Ferry. Bill Menor saw the need for
a more convenient access across the
Snake River and built and operated
his ferry from 1894 until 1918 when
he sold it to Maud Noble. Maud oper-
ated the ferry until 1927 when its use
became obsolete after a steel truss
bridge was constructed across the
river. There is also an old log gen-
eral store which was operated by Bill
Menor. We enjoyed walking through
the store and seeing the furnishings
complete with a moose antler chair.
We stopped and had a picnic at the
Moose Trading Post and Deli. We sat
at picnic tables which overlooked the
Teton mountain range. Beth and I de-
cided that "we might have many more


picnics, but we would never have one
with more breathtaking scenery.
After lunch we took a boat across
Jenny Lake and took the trail which
leads up into the Tetons. After climb-
ing steadily upward we came. to a
.rushing river and followed it until we
came to the Hidden Falls which has
an 80-foot drop and is beautiful.
We took the next upward path
which leads all the way to Inspiration
Point. The overlook there was just
over one mile above Jenny Lake, and
the view down to the lake and sur-
rounding area was truly inspirational.
If you ever plan to visit the Tetons,
you will find it a wonderful experi-
ence to go to Hidden Falls and In-
spiration Point. I've traveled by the
Tetons 6 or 7 times through the park,
but I have never crossed Jenhy Lake
and hiked up into the peaks until this
trip. From a distance they look rocky
and cold, but once you hike into them
you realize there is a great deal of
trees and wild flowers as well as a
great deal of rushing water in those
peaks. Chipmunks and ground squir-
rels make their homes among the
rocks and were darting around every-
where as we hiked upward. The air
is quite thin, and I had to stop often
to catch my breath, but it wvas a sight
to behold when we reached the point
and looked out over the valley.
Next we traveled on through Yel-
lowstone and exited out the west
entrance at West Yellowstone. There
was some road work in the park so it
slowed us down quite a bit. We made
it to Gallatin Gateway and the 9 Quar-
ter Circle Ranch just before dark.
I will continue my quilting retreat
tale in next week's column.

worship the reality of idol worship is found in the hearts of
those who refuse to see the saving truth of Jehovah's will.
Explaining the use of parables Jesus said, Therefore I speak
to them in parables, because seeing they see not, and
hearing they hear not; nor do they understand. And in them
is fulfilled the prophecy of Isaiah which said, "By hearing
you shall hear and shall not understand; and seeing you
shall see and shall not perceive; for this people's heart has
become gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and they
have closed their eyes, lest at any time they should see
with their eyes and hear with their ears and should
understand with their heart, and should be converted, and
I should heal them" (Matthew 13:13-15). Man has eyes to
see but will not see the truth of God. Man has ears to hear
the word of God but desires only to hear what tickles his
ear. "For a time will be when they will not endure sound
doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves
according to their own lusts, tickling the ear. And they will
turn away their ears from the truth and will be turned to
myths" (2 Timothy 4:3-4).
Israel turned away from the truth and followed after
idols. We must guard against the tickling of the ears to
appease our own lusts. God wants all men to come to
repentance (Acts 17:30) but we have to come to Him on His
terms (Matthew 7:21). Idol worship takes on many forms
today as man sets aside the will of God for his own way.
The scriptures are written so that all men can read and
understand the one truth (John 14:6; Ephesians 3:3-4). We
are unlike idols that have eyes that cannot see or ears that
cannot hear. God has given to man "all things that pertain
to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who
has called us to glory and virtue" (2 Peter 1:3). Paul's
mission was "To open their eyes so that they may turn
from darkness to light, and from the authority of Satan to
God, so that they may receive remission of sins and an
inheritance among those who are sanctified by faith in
Me" (Acts 26:18).

Ever been dumped? If so, hearing
the words "Dear John" (unless your
name really is John) might make
you cringe. It is believed Americans
joined the phrase during World War
11, when large numbers of Amen-
can troops were stationed overseas
for many months or years As time
passed many of their girlfriends de-
tided to begin a relationship with a
new man rather than wait for their
return. As letters to servicemen from
girlfriends back home would typi-
j ally contain affectionate greetings.
a serviceman receiving a note begin-
ning with a curt "Dear John"'(as op-
posed to the expected "Dear Johnny,"
br "Sweetheart." for example) would
instant\ be aware of the letter's,
purpose. At any rate, the phrase is
known as the introduction to rejec-
tion...not the kind of news ywe ever
look forward to hearing. -
' Rejection is a tough thing to talk
about and even tougher to experi-,
ence. Fast-forward to today and re-"
jection may sound like this: "I just
need my space," "It's not you, it's.
me" and even "I just don't rove you
anymore." In their book. "'TheArt of
Rejection," Michael and Hayley Di-
Mlarco write, "Rejection is a fact of
life. In fact. a healthy outlook on life
means embracing rejection No hu-
man always gets the job, gets the girl
(or guy), or gets a large for the price
of a medium. An older Garth Brooks
song thanks God "for unanswered
prayers." The lesson: rejection., even
when we don't want or understand it.
brings better things."
How in the world could rejecton
bring better things when it feels so
rotten? Look at it this way...rela-
tionships are a learning process. We
aren't going to get it right the first
time around and there are onil two
outcomes for any relationship w ith a
person of the opposite sex marriage
or rejection. Since we want the rela-
tionship that results in marriage to be
permanent, we are going to have to
sift through some Mr./Mrs. Wrongs


before we find the right one for life.
This means accepting rejection as in-
strumental in hating mature. healthy
relationships. So if rejection is as
necessary% as it is unpleasant. how do
we handle it and keep our dignity?
The DiMarcos' book offers a host
of healthN options you can do land
should not do) when a boyfriend/girl-
friend is rejecting you.. .here are just
a few:
*Don't beg them to change their
mind, because they just might. Then
you are stuck in a severely dysfunc-
tional relationship. Congratulations!
You convinced someone who doesn't
want you that they should hang
around and keep you from meeting
someone :better!
*Do keep your mouth shut if the
only thing you want to say is going
to-be mean.
*Don't act like they have de-
stroyed'you, because they haven't. It
isn't what happens to you in life but
what you think about it and how you
react to it that matters. A wise soul
sees that rejection is just another door
eliminated in the process of finding'
the one we're looking for.
*Dp let them know that because of
how you feel for them, you can't con-
tinue to be friends. It would be best
for you just to 'go your separate ways
and remember each other well.
Obviously,, experiencing rejection
will never be our idea of a fun day,
but with the right perspective, it can
be turned into soriething positive...
because your heart matters.
Blessings. Angie

not our spirits as we were there for a

Some of us braver souls went on a

TES to hold first PTO
meeting
The Trenton Elementary PTO will
hold its first general meeting of the
school year on Friday, September 4,
at 12 noon in the music room at TES.
If your children attend school at T1ES,
please come if you can.
It does not cost anything to join the
PTO. All that is needed is a commit-
ment to volunteer two hours this year
in your child's classroom or with oth-
er events at school. Making this com-
mitment helps our children to realize
that their education is important to
us, and this time can be split up into
small amounts or given, all at once. It
does not have to. be at any certain time
of day and can be worked in around
nearly any work schedule. There are
even things that teachers need that
can be done at home and sent in with
a student.
Please come to the meeting if you
can. If you have questions--or if


you want to help but can't make the
meeting-please leave a message for
Sherry Luzader at (352)463-3224 and
let her know. Thank you; we hope to
see you on the 4th at the meeting!

TIGERS should be Team Players, have Integrihl, Give respect, be
Eager to learn act Responsibly anti be Siiccessfil


SMst students in Florida and,
acrossthe nation are enjoying the
last weeks of summer vacation; not
so for Gilchrist County. As a result
of "A" grades, the county was given
the option of returning a week early.
Students filed into the auditorium
Mondaymorming greeted by friends,
teachers and administration, amidst a,
celebratory atmosphere. Almost 100
students were recognized for aca-
demic, vocational or sports-related
excellence. Two diverse examples
are the girls on the FFA dairy judg-
ing team who topped the state com-
petition and will head to nationals in
October. as well asthe, bys (most of
whom were on the'JV-Tiger team last
year) who competed with the SVL,
won the small area state tournament
and came in 5th in the large area state
tournament as well. What diverse
accomplishments bind Trenton stu-
dents together!
Also introduced and, explained
were the Tiger Expectations. All
students will be expected to practice
these behaviors in all areas of campus
life, including extra-curricular activi-
ties. The expectations are simple.
Tigers are expected to be Team Play-
ers have Integrity, Give Respect, be
Eager'jo learn, act Responsibly and
if, all these are accomplished, each
Tiger should be Successful. . The


Se


focus is' on helping students know
how, to behave positively and giv-
ing them practice while reinforcing
,the desired behaviors. The program
was designed by THS faculty using a
structure called PBS.
Positive Behavior Support nation-I
wide was created to improve academ-
ic and behavior outcomes by ensuring
all students have access to the most
effective and accurately implemented
instructional and behavioral practices
and. interventions possible. Data is
used to make decisions, and positive
and pro-social behaviors are taught,
modeled and reinforced. THS chose
the Tiger Expectations and identified
positive behaviors all students should
display in all school areas as " el as
school-related activities.
How is it working? It has only
been a few days, but many students
and faculty are feeling a different
.vibe at THS. Bulletin boards cam-
pus-wide unify student spaces and
all of the students are looking for
ways to earn Tiger Tokens. These
coupons, given by all staff members,
may be, redeemed for a front place in
line at lunch, the privilege of going to
the plaza or playground after finish-
ing lunch, or a number of other .re-
wards for displaying positive, coop-
erative behaviors. One teacher tells
of a student \ho wa exceptionally\

the teacher shared the student's suc-
.cess, other teachers were surprised,
yet excited. "This is what we had
hoped for, so it is wonderful to see it
coming to life before our eyes!" You
will be hearing more about PBS at
.THS in the coming weeks but initial
impressions are favorable. Parents
are encouraged to discuss Tiger Ex-
pectations with their children and to
discuss why positive behavior is im-
portant. Together, everyone benefits
from PBS at THS.

quires an.additional 30 minutes. Unlike

Mrs. Susan Emrich


By Geneva Comwell
Despite the heavy


rainstorm with


accompanying dark clouds and wind,
the inclement weather did not deter a
capacity group of Character Council
members and guests from attending
the sixth annual Community charac-
ter Forum held on August 26 at the
Trenton Community Center.
With the usual attractive arrange-
ments and table settings of purple
and accessories, the event not only
included a meal, but a delightful pro-
gram which demonstrated the won-
derful work and acts of benevolence
in our community in which the Coun-
cil participated.
Besides the annual relating of the
Council's history, the program in-
cluded the showing of a special DVD
produced expressly for the council,.as
well as character skits presented by,
local youth of Bethel Baptist Church
and Trenton First Baptist Church.


Guest speaker, Mrs. Susan Em-
rich, and co-founder of the Character
Council of Florida, was'ever so de-
lighted with the Character Council of
Gilchrist and all of what she saw and
heard. That pleasure was expressed
not only in her motivating talk, but
also in her words, "You're doing so
well; continue to keep moving for-
ward."
At the closing of the program,
President Mary Dunn thanked every-
one for coming and shared activities
in which the Council will be engaged
for the remaining part of 2009.
They are sponsoring the Loomis
Bros. Circus on October 16 and 17,
participating with a float, both in the
Veteran's Day Parade on November
11 and the Bell Christmas Parade on
December 5. Afterwards, Character
Council information packets were
distributed to new attendees to the
Forum.

Haven Hospice
launches Haven
Connections
Haven Hospice has launched a new
service to enhance the care and sup-
port it provides to patients and their
families. Haven Connections, an
online journal or blog, is being of-
fered so that patients and families can
keep relatives and friends up-to-date
and informed. One family or friend
serves as the registered administrator
who will be responsible for establish-
ing and updating the Haven Connec-
tions journal as well as giving friends
and family members direct access to
the journal's content. Haven Hospice
has established a well-defined and se-
cure process so that family members
and friends can access this informa-
tion in accordance with privacy regu-
lations.
"Haven Hospice is interested in us-
ing every avenue to provide the best
possible care to every patient and
family we serve," said Arthur Clark,
vice president and chief information
officer for Haven Hospice. "Haven
Connections is dedicated to individ-
ual patients and families, along with
being secure to ensure confidential-
ity.
To access the site, families served
by Haven Hospice may visit the or-
ganization's Web site at www.haven-
hospice.org, select "Family and Pa-
tient Resources," and click on Haven
Connections.. Families and friends
who may have questions about the
journal can call (352) 379-6234.

Volunteers are the heart
of Haven Hospice
Volunteers are the heart of non-
profit organizations, and they sup-
port Haven Hospice in a multitude of
ways.
As vital members of the Haven
Hospice patient care team, volunteers
work closely with hospice nurses,
social workers, hospice care aides,
chaplains and physicians to assist in
providing much needed respite and
support. Patient and family volun-
teers receive comprehensive training
in working directly with the patients
and families we serve. They can
serve in Haven's four inpatient care
centers, visit patients in their homes,
or serve them in hospitals and skilled
'nursing facilities. Volunteers provide
patients and families companionship
and support.

Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers News


Submitted
In 1994, burglaries and vandalism
were on the rise in the southeast por-
tion of Gilchrist County.
A small group of concerned citi-
zens approached the Sheriff regard-
ing the formation of a crime watch
organization, now known as the Gil-
christ Sheriff's Volunteers.
The Sheriff's Volunteers actively
participate in patrolling county roads
and assisting with traffic 'control at
accident scenes, funerals, and special
events.
You may have noticed the Sheriff's
Volunteers at special events such
as the Wild Beast Feast, Festival of


Lights, Red Belly Day, Down Home
days, Golden Hook Fishing Tourna-
ment, FFA Rodeo, graduations, pa-
rades, and football games..:to name
a few.
The Sheriff's Volunteers are in
charge of the CARE (Check and Re-,
spond Everyday) program where vol-
unteers.call shut-ins and make home
visits to those in need of this service.
Also, volunteers conduct Neigh-
borhood Watch programs that help
residents look out for each other and
learn ways to lessen their chances of
being victimized by criminals.
Sheriff's Volunteers undergo train-
ing in may areas of law enforcement

One of the most consuming and
rewarding projects that the Sheriff's
Volunteers undertake is the Thanks-
giving Food Drive and Distribution.
In 1997, the first year of the Food
Drive, the Sheriff's Volunteers'dis-
tributed turkeys and related fixings to
31 families in the county.
In 2008, that number had grown to
350, a reflection of the growth of the
county and those in need.
During 2008, Crime Watch vehi-
cles were driven 12,582 miles and the
Sheriff's Volunteers contributed over
1500 hours to various activities.
Sheriff Slaughter considers this
cooperative effort between Gilchrist
Sheriff's Volunteers and the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office essential to
helping crime prevention in Gilchrist
County.
Earlier this year, Sheriff Slaughter
made inquiries to Sheriff's Offices
throughout Florida requesting the
need for donated patrol cars for his
Sheriff's Volunteer program. Sheriffs
from Collier, Pasco, and St. John's
Counties responded to this need and
the Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers
now have three newer cars.
"The donated patrol cars and the
Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers exem-
plify counties helping counties and
neighbors looking out for the welfare
of their neighbors," Sheriff Slaughter
said.
The Gilchrist County Volunteers
hold meetings the first Tuesday of
each month at 6 p.m. at the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office training
room. The meetings are open to the
public.
Join our fight against crime by join-
ing the Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers
or starting a Neighborhood Watch
Program.

County paramedic

retires after 10 vears


Gilchrist County paramedic Tom Smith


By Linda Walker
He may have come to your rescue
and on the way to the hospital you
had a nice long chat, some even fig-
uring out they were related to or went
to high school with him. You may
have run into him regularly at Paw
Paw's getting his morning coffee,
or at one of the stores in Bell while
he's been on duty. Whatever the case
may have been, if' you meet Tom
Smith once, you have made a friend
for life. I don't think he ever meets
a stranger. Tom will help out anyone
in need, and I think that is why he
loves the EMS profession so much.
In the medical field, you often see
people at their worst, but if you can
show up and render care to someone',
it can make all the difference in the
world. By nature, this is the type of
person Tom is. On the outside, he is
tough, even gruff and to the point at
times; but on the inside he is a caring,
compassionate individual who would
give you the shirt off his back.
A veteran Paramedic with Gilchrist
County EMS, Tom decided recently
to try retirement. He started his EMS
career with Gilchrist County about
10 years ago as an EMT and then
furthered his education and became
a Paramedic. He also volunteered as
a firefighter for Gilchrist County for
many years. Prior to getting involved
in emergency services, he owned and
operated his own plumbing business
in Gainesville for many years before
moving to Gilchrist County.
He and his wife, Teresa, will con-
tinue to reside in the county, so I'm
sure you'll still run into him around
town. I wouldn't be surprised if he
doesn't pop back up on an EMS unit
from time to time in the future. I
think keeping him idle is going to be


a tough job!! On Sunday, August 23,
2009, a surprise retirement luncheon
was given by his friends and col-
leagues of the Gilchrist County Fire
Rescue Service. It took place at Sta-
tion One in Bell and was organized
by the firefighters from Stations 1
and 2. This was Tom's official last
shift. A special thank you goes to the
Whitwood family for supplying and
cooking the meat.
