Old Town men charged with burglary of 5 local businesses


By Carrie A. Mizell
Two Old Town'men have been ar-
rested and are now facing felony bur-
glary charges after allegedly break-
ing into and robbing five businesses
in Bell last week.
Michael'Brand, 17, and Randolph
Feola, 22, both of Old Town, will
be charged with five counts each of
felony burglary to a business and
five counts of possession of burglary


tools, after reportedly breaking into
the Dugout Sports Grill, Bell BP con-
venience store, Burger Spot in Bell,
Bells and Whistles storage, and Gil-
christ Building Supply.
' According to Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter, the "smash and grab bur-
glaries" occurred at 4:22 a.m. on
Wednesday, Feb. 3,.
Investigators Ron Boyd and Ed-
win Jenkins, of the Gilchrist County


Sheriff's Office, gathered evidence
at the scenes before issuing.a Be On
The Lookout (BOLO) to surrounding
counties. At press time, investigators
had recovered several cash registers
as well as some cash money.
Information received by the Gil-
christ County Sheriff's Office led in-,
vestigators to both Brand and Feola
in connection with the burglaries.
According to investigators, both


men are currently being held in the
Dixie County Jail, facing similar
charges in Dixie'County, as well as
the' latest charges in Gilchrist Coun-
ty.
The investigation remains ongoing,
explained Major Tony Smith of the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office:
"A sworn complaint has been is-
sued for the arrests," Major Smith
said on Monday.


Annual Walk-a-thon raises over $10K


Michael Brand Randolph Feola


By Carrie A. Mizell
Spirits were high on Saturday
morning as several hundred people
gathered on the courthouse lawn to
take part in the Education Founda-
tion's annual walk-a-thon.
Despite tough economic times,
the 2010 walk-a-thon generated
$10,616.71 thanks in large part to. the
S10 participating teams who. worked
hard to raise funds.
Bell Elementary School was cred-
ited as the top fundraiser this year,
having generated $3,110 in dona-
tions. Not only did BES rank first in
the schools category, the team raised
over $400 more than any other team
-participating.
According to Sherry Lindsey, prin-
cipal of Bell Elementary School, a
competition was held between each
of the grade levels to see what grade
could raise the most money for the
Walk-a-thon. Paper thermometers
were shown on the news each morn-
ing to show running totals, which
were added daily, so the students
could see where each class amount
was at the end of the day.
"The students and teachers really
rallied as you can see from the re-
sults," Lindsey said. "We all enjoyed
the event and look forward to next
year."
Trenton Elementary School placed
Second in the school competition
having raised $2,642.21. Trenton
Middle High School raised $985,
while Bell Middle High School gar-
nered $722.50.
Capital City Bank swept the
I business category, raising $1,372.
Ameris Bank came in second with
$500. Drummond Community Bank
brought in $360, followed by Lafay-
ette State Bank with $355.

Talent shines at Bell's


Evening of the Arts


By Jesse Gray.
What.a great way to start off the
weekend withan elegant,,"Evening
of the Arts" developed by the Bell
SBand and its sponsors. The event
took place on February 5 at 6:30
p.m., consisting of multiple per-'
formances ranging from middle'
school participants to the band di-
rector herself. The theme of this
year's annual dinner theater was
Mardi Gras. Held in the Bell El-
ementary Cafeteria, the room was
elaborately decorated in purple,
green and gold. Following dinner,
band members presented a mystery
skit titled "The Mardi Gras Mask."
Many Gilchrist County residents
attended the event. Funds raised
through sponsors who donated
money and ticket sales will go to-
ward new uniforms for the band.
The BES cafeteria was trans-
formed into a New Orleans French
Quarter, decorated with numerous
balloons, glitter'and beads to accent
the evening. Lisa Boutwell, one of-
the Band Boosters, greeted.the ati-
dience as a colorful and humorous
jester. Every guest who walked in
was introduced to the theme with
beaded necklaces. A French eve-
ning background lined the walls to
portray a fancy ballroom. Purple,
green, and gold backgrounds on ei-
ther side of the cafeteria were used
for band members to alternate their
performances.


'The evening was introduced by
the Bell Jazz .Band performing
"Georgia on My Mind" followed
by the 6th Grade Band playing
"Mexican Hat. Dance." Other
amazing performances included
Alyssa Branning playing "Five
Bagatelles" by Finzie on clarinet
and the Euphonium Trio (Dylan
Kaczor, Ashley Neese, and Brax-
ton Railey) who performed "Re-
,naissance Ballade" by Palestrina.
The band director, Sara DiPardo
played her own' amazing piece,
"Rag Time Bonanza" on baritone
and the Flag Auxiliary (Victo-
ria Ryan, Megan Sites, Michelle
Speck, Carson Stewart, and Katie
Welton) did a routine to "Wake
Up" by Hilary Duff. Dinner was
received during the performances
in an orderly manner, going table
by table. The delicious menu re-
flected a New Orleans flavor con-
sisting of king crab cakes, bourbon
chicken, Jambalaya, green beans,
salad, rolls and a variety of des-
serts. Julie Thomas provided the
catering with her business, Sim-
ply Delightful Inc. Middle school
band members did a great job as-
sisting the audience, keeping up
with filling drinks and serving the
desserts.
The mysterious play, "The
Mardi Gras Mask" was narrated

harvests, and irrigates using global
positioning systems (GPS). This
technology requires three units. The
first system is placed on each trac-
tor. The information that it collects
transmits this information to the base
tower. The base tower is the second
system that is placed in the field. The
system collects the information from
the tractor then transmits it to a glob-
al satellite where the information is
sent back to the tractor. This is the
same technology that is used by the
United States military when sending
artillery into combat. When planting
the seeds, the system records where
the seeds are inserted into the ground.
When it's harvesting time, the op-
erator can look at the same field on
the computer on the tractor and the
machine will harvest each seed that
it planted. In turn, this increases the
yield for the farmer. This technology
is also useful when making the crop
rows and disbursing fertilizers.
At the end of the visit, Mr. Tillis
urged the officers, as the young lead-
ers of the future, to speak out for the
farmer and agriculture.as a whole.
The next visit was to Usher Land
& Timber and Usher Farms, with Mr.
Ken Griner. Mr. Griner spoke on the
importance of the forestry industry
along with owning a business in f9r-
estry.
The Usher family's timber business
started in the early 1900s. Today, the
business includes 35 employees, most
of whom have been with the business
for many years. Usher Land & Tim-.
ber has been awarded Florida Logger
of the Year, Southeast Logger of the
Year, as well as the National Logger
of the Year.
Mr. Griner explained that most
of the trees that are harvested are
from leased land. The trees are then
shipped to twelve different mills.
Timber products range from mulch,
poles, lumber, to household prod-
ucts.
For every tree that is ,harvested, a
tree must be planted in its place, Mr.
Griner explained.
Once the logging crews have fin-
ished harvesting a particular area, the
clean-up crews use equipment to re-
pair the roads and the land to prepare
it for re-planting.
The other business that the Ushers
are involved in is the beef cattle in-
dustry. The family manages two dif-
ferent cattle operations. One is cow/
calf and the second is stocker opera-
tion. In the cow/calf operation, cows
are bred by select genetics from bull

sires. They breed by way of artificial
insemination, in most cases. These
cattle are produced using Brah-
man for heat tolerance and mother-
ing ability, Charolais for muscling
and frame, and i Angus for its well-
known marbling qualities.. Using
these breeds of beef cattle ensures a
high quality meat animal.
In the stocker operation, the fam-
ily purchases most of the calves from
Florida cattle producers. The calves,
at the time of purchase, weigh be-
tween 300-400 pounds. Once at the
farm, they are fed a nutrient-rich

diet containing silage, minerals, and
feed products. They are kept on the
farm during the winter months then
shipped to Kansas for the spring
months. They are fed out to approxi-
mately 850-1000 pounds on high-
quality grass and then sold to the
markets. By finishing out the cattle
in Kansas, they are able to produce
beef in a shorter amount of time and
have more market opportunities than
they would be able to here in Florida.
Mr. Griner feels that record keeping,
genetics, and feed rations are an am-
ple part to the beef cattle industry..',
The third visit was. in Gilchrist
Couin'ty at North Florida Holsteins
where Dave Temple, general manag-
er, guided the group around the dairy.
There are, approximately 8,000 head
of dairy cattle on 2,000 acres of land.
The farm was started in 1980 milking
only 120 head of cattle. North Flori-
da Holsteins is nowknown across the
state as one of the best.
While there, the group had the op-
portunity to explore the state of the
art tunnel-ventilated free-stall barns
which were built last year. After the
tour through the new barn, the group
had the chance to watch the milking
process.
At the final stop of their tour, the
officers visited Trenton's Agricultural
Education Department. 'There, they
observed the fish pond, beef cattle
herd, egg production, sugarcane crop
and future cane syrup making proj-
ect, mechanic shop, woodworking
shop, and the three-classroom facil-
ity. Each officer walked away from
the. trip with a bottle of cane syrup
and a new range of experiences from
the agriculture industry.

Now aitd 7keht
By Carrie A. Mizell


Noah Owens, Gus Ayers and Allie Claire Mizell prepare for their
first Education Foundation Walk-a-thoft.


I hate to workout. I mean flat out
loathe and despise it. It's not that I
mind breaking a sweat, I don't, I just
hate the thoughts of running in place
on a treadmill and getting no where,
or worse yet running up and down
the Greenway Trail shaming myself
in front of all the cars driving by.
Goodness knows, somebody would
have to bring a van and scoop my
broken body up off the trail. Think
roadkill, because that's about what
I'd look like!
Only for a good cause will I ex-
ercise and lucky for me, Saturday's
Education Foundation Walk-a-thon
was just such a good cause!
Adam and I got up at 6 a.m., loaded
the truck with Allie Claire and all her
necessary paraphernalia and drove to
Trenton, just in time for us to walk in
the Walk-a-thon.
Unfortunately, I had left my sweat
pants at my parents' house not long
ago, so I wore my jeans down and
stopped at their house in order to
get my sweats, so I'd look serious
about exercise. Sadly, mom washed
the sweatpants and they were soak-
ing wet in the washing machine just


when. I needed them for honest to
goodness exercise. I dried them as
quickly as I could, but I ran out of
time, so up I'went to the courthouse
in soggy sweats, pushing sweet Allie
in her stroller.
Thankfully I wasn't 'too late and I
didn't develop a case of hypothermia
walking all over town in my soggy/
saggy sweats with it freezing cold.
Boy was I a sight; thank 'heavens
for these cute babies, Allie, Gus and
Noah who garnered all the attention,
which is just how it' should be.
These buddies will be going to kin-
dergarten together one day! Heaven
help their Trenton Elementary School
teachers. I don't know what they are
going to do. Allie and Gus are some-
thing else. They are both little dare-
devils!
While Noah rolled through town
with his sunglasses on, Allie sat back
eating Captain's Wafers and Gus,
well, Gus stood up in, his stroller,
'hanging on to the tray with his head
poked out over the front. He looked
like a pointer Lab. Aunt Carrie didn't
know whether to fall out laughing or
call 911, for fear he would fall out.

What the TEA Party movement is and is not


By Daniel Gardner
Why is the TEA Party movement
such an enigma for those with pro-
gressive-elitist points of view? Pro-
gressive elitists are similar to biblical
Pharisees and Sadducees who didn't
get Jesus' parables.
In Jesus' case the prophets had
long ago foretold His critics would
not get 'it.' Fair and Balanced: Jesus
(New Testament) quotes Isaiah (Old
Testament), "You will keep on hear-
ing, but will not understand; and you
will keep on seeing, but will not per-
ceive; for the heart of this people has
become dull...."
In the vernacular we say, "none so
blind as one who will not see."
The TEA Party movement is not a
religious movement, though many in
the movement are faithful believers.
The TEA Party movement is not
a political party or even prelude to
becoming a political party. TEA Par-
tiers are fed up with political parties!
That's the point progressive-elitists
fail to grasp.
Even after the inaugural national
convention, the TEA Party move-
ment still has no recognized central
person, authority, or office. No one to
blame or vilify! That's what's driving
the progressive-elitists crazy.
Of course, the lame-stream me-,
dia (Sarah Palin's characterization)
continues to tell half the TEA Party
story, reiterating what TEA Partiers
are 'against' and highlighting the
most politically incorrect within the
movement. Who would have thought
the lame-stream media would have a
political perspective or agenda?
FOX News certainly has a po-
litical perspective. It just happens to
be diametrically different from the
other broadcast/cable news lockstep
perspective. If one wants the whole-
picture, one has to gather news from
differing perspectives, otherwise one


is deceiving him or her self. Same is
true of newspapers and other news
sources.
Back to the TEA Party movement:
TEA Partiers are fiscal conservatives
who are fed up with big government,
particularly in Washington. TEA Par-
tiers recognize both Republicans and
Democrats are to blame.
TEA Partiers believe Washington
not only doesn't have answers to
problems like healthcare reform and
the economy, but Washington IS the
problem in many cases.
Progressive-elitists believe Wash-
ington can defy laws of economics
and spend its way out of debt. TEA
Partiers say, "STOP SPENDING US
INTO TERMINAL DEBT!"
TEA Partiers are not campaigning
for reducing government. They are
actually working to reduce the size of
government. Big difference between
campaigning and working (see "dif-
ference between campaigning and
governing" for further details).
TEA Partiers believe businesses,
particularly small and medium size
businesses are the backbone and
drivers of the American economy.
Based on this belief, Partiers believe
American businesses can bring us
out of these poor economic times
IF Washington will just get out of
the way, i.e. lowering taxes (vs. pro-
gressive-elites' ideas of raising taxes
in a recession), allowing poor'busi-
ness practices to fail (no more bail-
outs try bankruptcy), and restoring
confidence in the Dollar by stopping
wasteful spending on bottomless bu-
reaucratic money pits.
The TEA Party movement sprang
up spontaneously and autonomously
in thousands of communities across
America when Chicago thugs and
Beltway bullies defied the Consti-
tution. In .conservative America,
"them's fighting' words!"


Letters to the Editor


Bill SB208
I read an article published Janu-
ary 14, 2010, in the Gainesville Sun
about a bill (SB208) filed by Sen.
Steve Oelrich .called the transpor-
tation fee bill. This bill will allow
Santa Fe College and other colleges
to charge every student a.fee to in-
crease bus services to 'campuses.
This fee could be up to $6 per credit
hour, so if your child takes 15 credit
hours the fee could be as high as $90
a semester. Being concerned because
I have a child that attends Santa Fe, I
phoned Santa Fe and asked if every
student would be charged. President
Jackson Sasser's reply was yes ev-
ery student would be charged, and
it did not matter if you lived outside
the City of Gainesville. I for one do
not want to pay for a service that my
child would never use. Why should
a student that lives in Levy, Dixie or
Gilrchrist County have to subsidize
Gainesville's bus service. With the
high price of tuition and books who
can afford another fee. Please call or
e-mail Sen. Oelrich and remind him
that he also represents kids that live
outside the City of Gainesville and
that this bill is unfair.

Peter exhorted his "fellow elders" in 1 Peter 5:1-4 and
reminded them "when the chief shepherd shall be

not two words but one and shows-the relationship Jesus has
with those men called "elders" (1 Peter 5:1). Peter explains
the work of elders or shepherds (pastors) as tending the
flock and exercising the oversight. A pastor is a shepherd


shepherd or elder who does not meet these commands.
Paul reinforced this directive to Titus when he said that he
should "set in order the things that were wanting, and
appoint elders in every city, as I gave thee charge" (Titus
1:5) and gives the qualities of the man who would be an
elder or bishop.
Every church that has one man (or women) as an
overseer or "pastor" is not following the New Testament
pattern of leadership. With all that is said about elders in
the New Testament, where do you find elders in your
church?

misinformation...about my amend-
ment to the Senate health-care legis-
lation......" As a follow-upperhaps
you will be kind enough to enlighten
a simple dotard, misinformed as I am,
regarding a few more things you have
been a party to in the recent past:
1. Why did you vote to confirm as
Treasurer of the USA an admitted tax
cheat who appears incapable of pre-
paring his own tax return, but now is
IN CHARGE OF OUR NATION'S
INCOME TAX SYSTEM?
2. Why do you appear so commit-
ted to the socialization of our nation's
health care system (dare one mention
the fact that it is now the best in the
world?) by placing it ALL in yet an-
other gigantic bureaucracy (think
- US Post Office, Amtrak and/or Im-
migration Services) RATHER than
solving the problems which now ex-
ist, such as rooting out corruption,
multi-state insurance policy sales and
SERIOUSLY looking at tort reform?
Surely you won't argue that all of the
current House and Senate health-care
bills were crafted completely out in
the open, with NO secret closed-door
negotiations or other shameful, dis-
graceful "deals" being made outside
of public view? Why not IN FACT
REFORM health care, not complete-
ly REMAKE it into a socialistic sys-
tem? '
3. Perhaps you can help me under-
stand why you have voted in lock-
step (92-plus % of your votes) with
the' present administration's line,
which seems committed to the So-
cialistic, Marxists ideas of complete
big-government control over of the
entire lives of our' citizens? (Think
- bailouts of the autos and the banks/
brokerages; destruction of the US
dollar; billions wasted in "recovery
legislation"; creation of a national
debt which likely can NEVER be re-
paid).
4. Do you honestly believe that a

It's about time to gear up for the
third annual Suwannee Valley Quilt
and Old Time Craft Festival. This
year's event will be held on Saturday,
March 13 in downtown Trenton.
.I've started doing research to date
an apron collection that I've been
working on for the past several years.
I have aprons from the 30s and 40s
and some from a time I haven't been
able to place yet.
My favorites by far are the
everyday work aprons. They were
used non-stop during a day on the
farm. Grandmothers would pull up
their apron to make a giant pocket
to gather eggs or. pick peas in. They
would grab up a hand full of apron
skirt to use as a hot pad to remove
a frying pan of corbread from.the
wood stove oven. Aprons were also
used to dry tears of a sweet grandbaby
during a busy wash day.
Although several of these old ev-
eryday work aprons are faded and
worn soft from time and use, I still
love them. Some aprons even have a
few holes burned in them, but I know
that years ago some mother or grand-
mother just like me would pull down
that apron from its nail before she be-
gan her day's work.
.Just today I strapped on one of my
favorite denim aprons before tackling
a dishpan of mustard greens which
needed washing.
I am also attracted to the pretty
aprons which are embellished with
rickrack and embroidery. These of
course were considered the fancy
aprons and were not worn very often;
therefore, they are in much better
condition.
The quilt and craft festival seems
to me to be a good time to display
this apron collection which I've been
working on since Carrie got me inter-
ested several years ago. She and my
mother and several good friends are
also loaning aprons for this display. If
'anyone out there has a special apron
they want to include in the display


which will be set up in front of the
Gilchrist County Journal building,
please drop them by. Just include a
card with your name and phone num-
ber so I might reach you if I have a
question. Also add any history you
might know about the maker. I would
reallylove to find aprons made by our
early' pioneer grandmothers. which
came to settle in our area. I have sev-
eral old Levy County aprons but none
from Gilchrist or Dixie counties. Just
drop any aprons you would like dis-
played by the Journal office and they
will give them to me.

I just love cooking with beef short
ribs. Now, it helps if you have half a
day because short ribs do need time.
The following recipe would make
some mighty -fine soup on a cold
morning in February.

2 pounds beef sort ribs
1/2 cup macaroni
1/2 package frozen Fordhook beans
2 cans stewed tomatoes
1 cup sliced carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 medium onion chopped
1 cup potatoes cut in 1/2 inch pieces
2 cups chopped cabbage, optional
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried marjoram
salt and pepper to taste
Put ribs in large pot, cover with wa-
ter and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
Meat should be very tender. Add salt
and pepper to taste. After ribs are
tender, skim most of the fat off the
top. Add enough water to make 1 1/2
quarts of stock. Take meat off ribs
and chop. Add meat back to stock
along with potatoes and vegetables.
Let cook for about 30 minutes; then
add macaroni and spices as well as
seasoned salt. Cook until the macaro-
ni is tender, about 30 more minutes.
'Note--this soup is good served With
really thin hard cornbread.

Criminal Justice mascot shows BHS pride


Submitted
Many people have questioned why
-the Bell Criminal Justice program
painted the mascot on the outside
wall of the building. Well, their ques-
tions are being answered. The Bell
Criminal Justice program painted the
mascot for many reasons. The mascot
gives us a sense of pride. It is known
throughout Bell High School that
building 05-002 is the Bell Criminal
Justice building, but having the mas-
cot painted permanently on the wall
is like an open statement of owner-
ship.
Mr. Ray Stoel has had many differ-
ent classrooms to teach his Criminal
Justice academy in. Since having the
Criminal Justice program Mr. Ray
has had to move five different times.
He started out in a small portable and
was upgraded to a room in build-
ing 14. He moved twice more, from
building 14 to the PCA building then
a classroom in the Health Academy
building, before he was/finally able to
snag half of building 05-002, sharing
the other half with a fellow teacher.
The next year, Mr. Ray was able to
have the entire building for his own,
and it has become known as the
Criminal Justice building.
The entire building has been excel-'
lent for the Criminal Justice program,
because we have been able to have
most of our activities in the building,
instead of having to borrow other
classrooms.
For example, since having the en-
tire building, we were able to have
a courtroom built to have our mock
trials in, instead of either not doing
the trials or borrowing a courtroom.
Another example is that we were
able to move our firearms simulation

to a back room within the building,
instead of having to borrow a room
in the library as we have had to in the
past. Having the mascot painted on
the outside wall of the building is a
symbol of our final settling. The Bell
Criminal Justice program has found
its home and wanted to show its pride
on our wall.
When the idea came up for paint-
ing the mascot on the outside wall,
the entire program went into an up-
roar of excitement. Several students
tried in wonderful ideas of what the
mascot should look like, and a former
Criminal Justice student, Lee Carl-
isle, submitted the chosen design.
One Saturday afternoon, "members
of the Criminal Justice academy, Mr.
Ray, and Wes and Terri Skiles took
the design and used a projector to en-
large it on the chosen wall. Students
worked most of the day to outline the


mascot. For the next couple of days,
Tessa Skiles, Lacey Nobles, and a.
foreign exchange student, Malte
Smoor, worked hard and painted the
mascot.
On December 8, 2009 the paint-7
ing of our mascot was finished and-
revealed. Every day since then, all-
Criminal Justice members have been.
proud to walk by and see the bulldog,;,
boasting Criminal Justice on its col-
lar and dangling handcuffs from its
mouth, marking our building.
Asking Bell Criminal Justicet
members why they wanted the mas- ,
cot painted on the wall is like ask-'
ing ROTC or BHS band why they;
have their mascot on the wall of their'
buildings. It's about pride and stat-,
ing the fact that we have settled in..
We would like to thank our principal,
Rick Reed, for his support with this t
project.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

INFORMATION
This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible
Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property? ,
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself.-It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, :supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business orto earn
income.
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyonein possession of assets on January 1 who has either
a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed
agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who
lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal
property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's
office. If you receive a'return, it's because our office has
determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the
form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way,
the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) dbes not relieve you of your
obligation to file.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible
Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the
Property Appraiser's Office.
Q. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a
return?
A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out
items 1 through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation of
why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and
rental units have some assets to report even if it is only supplies,
rented.equipment or household goods.
Q. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return?
A. Yes, if you were not in business on January 1 of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This'assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.

$25,000 Tangible Personal
Property Exemption

In order to receive this new exemption, you must
file a Tangible Personal Property Return by April
1, unless an exemption has been granted.

Tangible Property Return shall be considered an
application for the exemption and will be applied
to the first $25,000 of assessed value for the TPP
account.


HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS
File the original return with this office (with name and
account number preprinted), as soon as possible before
April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return.
Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any
equipment that may have been "Physically Removed".
List those items in the appropriate space on your return.
If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule
that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your
complete return.
Do not use vague terms such as ."various" or "same as
last year".
It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of
assets since depreciation on each item may vary.
Please include your estimate of fair market value and
the original cost of the item on your return. They are
important considerations in determining an accurate
assessment.
Additional information regarding filing is provided in
the instructional section of the return itself.
If you sell your business, go out of business, or move
to a new location, please inform this office. It will enable
us to keep timely, accurate records.

Tangible Personal Property please contact:

Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is
responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient
property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January 1 wohld be responsible for
the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to
avoid problems in this area.
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or
not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must
be filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature,
you Mnust file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that tlhe return is late. A 15% penalty is
required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

NOTICE OF A FINDING OF NO

SIGNIFICANT IMPACT

The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application for financial
assistance from the City of Fanning Springs. The proposal consists of:
1- Constructing a 99,000 gallon-per-day wastewater treatment facility. The
facility will utilize an activated sludge process for wastewater treatment. Land
application will be the selected method for biosolids disposal with aerobic
digestion as the selected method for sludge stabilization.

2- Constructing a wastewater collection system consisting of approx. 16,000
feet of gravity sewers; 22,000 feet of force mains, 7 grinder stations, 4 lift
stations; one master pump station; and misc. items. The work included will take
place along US 19/80; SR 26; and within the Suwannee River Springs area
located in Fanning Springs, Florida.

As required by the National Environmental Policy Act and agency regula-
tions, the Rural Utilities Service prepared an Environmental Assessment of the
proposal that assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposal and
the effect the proposal may have on historic properties. The Environmental
Assessment was published on November 10, 2009 for a 30-day public comment
Period. Following the publication of the Environmental Assessment, the agency
received three (3) comments which raised specific environmental cohcems with
the proposed project. These comments and the responses to them were:

Comment 1: The proposed project would encourage sprawl development in
the area
Response 1: The project would create the, City's first centralized wastewa-
ter collection and treatment system, which can be considered a tool for smart
growth and will promote environmental protection and improvement to quality
of life of the populationof the service area.

Comment 2: The proposed project would not address the nitrate problem
and would degrade quality of groundwater by generating an effluent with
50ppm of nitrates
Response 2: The proposed treatment facility would generate a treated
effluent with maximum concentration of 10 ppm of total nitrogen,and will
provide a better treatment than what's currently provided, hence improving the
quality of groundwater in the area.

Comment 3: Were there any other steps the City could consider to abate
failing septic systems/nitrate loading such as more stringent ordinances and
zoning?
Response 3: More ordinances requiring routine inspection of septic tanks,
more stringent agriculture best management practices, and new zoning that,
increase the size of minimum residential lots would create more economic
hardship to the community and would affect affordability of housing in the area.

Upon consideration of the applicant's proposal, federal and state environmen-
tal regulatory qnd natural resource agencies, Division of Historical Resources,
and public input, the agency has determined that the proposal Will not have a
significant effect on the human environment and for which an Environment
Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is that
no significant impacts of the proposal are anticipated. No mitigation measures
will be needed for this proposal.

Copies of the Environlmental Assessment can be reviewed or obtained at:

USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT
2441 NE 3rd Street, Suite 204-1
Ocala, FL 34470

For further information, please contact R. C. Quainton II at (352) 732-9796,
Option 5.

A general location map of the proposal is shown below.

By Melissa Carter
Cheerleaders from all over. the
southeast traveled to the Edgewater
Beach Resort in Panama City Beach
to participate in the annual Gulf Coast
Diamond Championship-Competi-
tion held on Saturday, January 30.
SFor the first time ever, SVL's post-
season Cheer Groups were invited to
the Gulf Coast to compete, and the
12-and-Under group brought home a
First place win!
"Students competing in the event
have been practicing their routine
since the regular cheer season end-
ed," said Wanda Liddell, mother of
Gabrielle Liddell who was one of the
winning participants and a student
at Trenton Middle School. There
were several schools from our area
represented on the SVL squad. The
squad was made up of girls from
Trenton Elementary School--Gracie
Langford 2nd grade, Emily Wilkin-
son 4th grade, Chloe Buckingham
4th grade, Kendall Silkl 2nd grade;
Trenton Middle School: Kelly Rose
5th grade, Gabby Liddell 5th grade,
Monikalyn Gay 5th grade, Kiana
Powers 5th grade, Nataleigh But-
ler 6th grade, Jordan Elmore; Bell
Elementary School--Charlize Sim-
mons 3rd Grade, Taylor Mauldin 5th
grade; Chiefland Elementary School-
-Achl'v ~lrmnns 9nrl oradr Mnnica


Clemons 3rd grade; and Home School
program participants--Rebekah Phil-
man 6th grade and Hayley Holcombe
6th grade.
This year was the first time that the
SVL cheerleaders had been invited
to the Gulf Coast Diamond Champi-
qnship-Competition, and they made
their mark. The 12-and-under Group,
coached by Lela Elmore, Angie
Rexroat, and Candace Ashcraft, put
together a cheer and dance routine
that blew away the competition and
secured them top scores.
As the competitiveness of cheer-
leading becomes more popular, Tren-
ton anrd Bell High Schools had better
get ready, because theyhave some
very talented girls headed their way
in the next few years!
Students must have talent in dance,
tumbling and stunts to be part of a
cheerleading team. Routines have
become so advanced, that cheerlead-
ing is no longer an activity to support
other athletics; it has its.own.follow-
ing and competitive platform.
Sometimes people don't consider
cheerleading a sport, but the girls
work so hard, and it is great to get
some recognition for them at this lev-
el of competition, said one parent. In
addition to bringing home a 1st Place
win in the 12-and-Under non-mount
Recreational Division, SVL also won

ter and Museum was founded in 1997
when native Nebraskans Ardis and
Robert James donated their collection
of nearly 950 quilts to the University
of Nebraska-Lincoln. The new study
center and museum building was
completed in 2008 and it now houses
the largest publicly held quilt collec-
tion in the world. Crew told 'those
gathered that the mission of the study
center and museum was to collect,
preserve, study, exhibit and promote
discovery of qui4s and quilt making
traditions from many cultures, coun-
tries and times.
The quilts range from colonial
American quilts to contemporary
studio quilts from 24 countries dat-
ing as early as the 1700s, some 3000
quilts. Dr. Cox explained some of the
peaks and valleys of quilt making
through the years. She said since the
1970s quilting has grown steadily. In
1994 some 15.5 million citizens were
quilters, in 2000 it rose to 19.8 mil-
lion and in 2006 27 million people
were involved in quilting.
Crews said the entire collection at
the International Quilt Study Center
and Museum were on line in a thumb-
nail format at www.quiltstudy.org.
The Quilting Natural Florida II
will be exhibited from February 6 un-
til April -25, 2010 at the Florida Mu-
seum of Natural History. For more

Lifelong teacher

to celebrate her

100th birthday

To honor the lifelong contribu-
tion to education in Levy County of
Mrs. Marie Meeks of Ellzey, Florida,
former student Franklin Watson and
his wife Nancy have established the
Marie Meeks Scholarship Endow-
ment with the Southern Scholarship
Foundation in connection with the
celebration of Mrs. Meek's 100th
birthday on Saturday, February 13 at
her home near Ellzey.
"Mrs. Marie taught me in the 1st
and 2nd grades at the O~ter Creek
Elementary School. She taught my
brother, my mother and father, and a
number of my extended family dur-
ing her years of service to educa-
tion in Levy County," said Franklin.
"Nancy and I are honored to be able to
help ensure that Mrs. Marie's passion
for education will continue through
the Marie Meeks Scholarship, and I
am calling on all former students and
their families to join us in funding
the Endowment of the Marie Meeks
Scholarship." Franklin and Nancy
were both recipients of scholarships
from the Southern Scholarship Foun-
dation in 1968 to attend Florida State
University.
Mrs. Marie's family is hosting a
100th birthday lunch for her at her
house near Ellzey from 1:00 p.m. un-
til 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, February
13. Former students, their families,
and friends, are all invited to come
help celebrate the life of this special
lady. Vicki Henry, granddaughter of
Mrs. Marie said "lunch is provided by
the family for all who attend at 1:00
p.m. but everyone is invited to bring
a lawn chair and come early to visit.
No gifts, please; instead we would
ask that you consider a contribution
to the scholarship fund."
The Marie Meeks Scholarship
Fund will provide SSF with the nec-
essary operating support to sponsor
a student from Levy County major-
ing in elementary education to live in
an SSF scholarship house at any of
the four Florida universities served
by SSE Each year, a student will be
selected as the recipient of the Marie
Meeks Scholarship. Since the schol-
arship to SSF students is the oppoir-
tunity to live rent-free in scholarship
houses, the proceeds from this fund
will .be used to cover the cost of in-
surance, house maintenance and re-
pairs and the staff support provided
to that student.
For more information about mak-
ing a gift to support the Marie Meeks
Scholarship, please contact Courtney
Stombock at 850-222-3833, by e-mail
to cstombock@ southemscholarship.

arship.org to make a tax deductible
contribution by clicking on the "do-
nate" button. Please be sure to indi-
cate that your contribution is for the
Marie Meeks Scholarship.


Bell Middle-High School Band members took to the stage on Friday night at the BES cafeteria.

Talent shines at Bell's Evening of the Arts
Continued from page 1


by Lisa Boutwell and became ex-
tremely entertaining with a few hu-
morous parts.
The plot of the story is set in the
ballroom of the Iberville Mansion
during the annual Mardi Gras Ball,
on the 100th anniversary of a mur-
der that took place in the same room.
Legend has it that the departed spirit
will seek revenge that very night.
The characters in the skit were
dressed formal, with the girls in el-
egant gowns. Mrs. Lorraine Miqel
played by Kayla Gurule was the
superstitious ,character, taking all
evidence of a possible spirit being
around and believing it. Mr. Willelm
Miqel played by Timothy Griffith'
ended up being the culprit behind the
mystery.
Towards the end of the play, it was
hysterical to find out Rick Reed, the
principal of Bell High was included
in the drama when Officer Stoel.
(Thomas Waldron) brought him out
of the crowd and arrested him.
Another comedic fact is that all of
the characters' names were directed
toward certain people in Gilchrist
County and the school, such as Colo-
nel Bradford Surray representing Bell
High teacher, Brad Surrency and Mr.
Donat Tome' as Superintendent Don
Thomas.
The students who performed in the
skit did a phenomenal job, seeing that
they were only able to rehearse four
times before the:actuil' event: -. ,'' '


The cafeteria was completely full
during the dinner and entertainment.
About 200 people attended the event,
including county commissioners and
school board members. Ms. Iris Rob-
erts attended as well.
SBand Director Sara DiPardo would
like to thank all boosters and alumni
who made the event possible as well


as all whosponsored and attended.
SThe money raised at the dinner the-
ater will further be invested in new
band uniforms and equipment. New
uniforms, which used to cost around
$400 have now heightened to $600
a uniform; therefore, any money do-
nated was greatly appreciated.
