Fight


at Bell High School lands on the Internet


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice is investigating a fight between
three Bell High School juniors that
showed up on the Internet before the
Sheriff's Office was even called last
week.
According to Major Tony Smith of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
investigators are now looking into the
fight, after the parents of the teenager
who was injured in the fight called to
report the incident last Wednesday
night.


"One of the things we are looking
at is why it wasn't stopped sooner,"
Smith said.
A crowd of students and at least,
one adult witnessed the fight, which
had reportedly been brewing for over
a week primarily between two teen-
age boys. Several students reportedly
videoed the fight, which occurred,in
front of the high school gym shortly
after the first bell rang, on their cell
phones. Before the end of the day,,
footage of the fight had been edited
and sound effects had been added


prior to several teenagers posting
the fight on both Facebook and You-
Tube.
As of Friday afternoon, the You-
Tube video dubbed "Stevie Beat-
Down" had been viewed 748 times.
By Monday the video had been taken
off both YouTube and Facebook, and
the students who posted the video
were reportedly being disciplined.
The graphic video coverage of the
fight shows one of the teenagers in-
volved being choked and held down
on the ground for a lengthy period


of time. According to witnesses, the
teenager lost consciousness at one'
point and incurred a chipped tooth,
a swollen jaw and extensive bruising
around his neck.
Rick Reed, principal at Bell High
School said, "The recent incident
which occurred on the Bell High
'School campus has been investigated
and all students involved have been
properly disciplined."
According to one of the students
involved, who is a minor and there-
fore will not be called by name, each


one of the three individuals involved
was given five days suspension for
the fight.
Following the incident, superinten-
dent Don Thomas said, "Great efforts
are being made to continue to provide
our students with a safe, learning en-
yironment."
Thomas went on to say that the
safety of students is extremely im-
portant.
The fact that the fight was captured
on cairera phones and posted on the
Internet has left several parents in the


community questioning why students
are allowed to have cell phones on
campus. Several students at Trenton
Middle-High School were reportedly
watching a video of the fight.while at
school on Wednesday afternoon via
their cell phones, as footage was sent
from one phone to the next through-
out thb county.
"Schools are an environment for
learning, ideally," said one local par-
ent, 'who wanted to remain anony-
mous. "Cell phones just appear to be
a great distraction."


Yates dies at 37 after


battling leukemia

Funeral will be Saturday at First Baptist Church


By Carrie A. Mizell
A long and courageous fight came
to an end Saturday night as DeWayne
Yates lost his battle with leukemia.
Yates, 37, was in the M.D. An-
derson Cancer Center in Houston,
Texas, where he had been receiving
treatments, for several months when
he passed away, with his wife Marsha
by his side.
A Perry, Fla. native, DeWayne
moved to Trenton with his parents,
Paul and Patricia "Pat" Yates, and
sister, Dana, when he was just 9-
years-old.
DeWayne attended school in Tren-
ton, where he was actively involved
in FFA. He also lifted weights and
played football for the fighting Tigers
under the direction of Coach Tommy
Malloy and Coach John Vickers.
"DeWayne was a smart, well-.
mannered kid who worked hard and
wanted to be part of a team;...he was
easy to coach," recalls John. Vickers.
"DeWayne'is one of mine and Coach
Malloy's kids and he always will
be."
DeWayne graduated from Trenton
High School in 1990 and attended
college at the University of Florida,
where he graduated Magna Cum
Laude.
After DeWayne became C.E.O. of
the Family Medical and Dental Cen-
ters and Trenton Medical Center, Inc.,
Vickers worked one-on-one with his
former player again.
"When I served on the medical
board, I worked closely with De-
Wayne and I saw just how smart
and well-organized he was," Vickers
said. "He was very successful, but of
course, we always knew he would
be."
DeWayne's longtime friend Scott
Guthrie said that professionally, De-
Wayne, had more vision than even
he could fathom. After being hired
as finance officer at Trenton Medical
Center in 1998, Guthrie said it took
DeWayne about six months to get
comfortable with what went on, but
once he did there was no stopping his
vision and compassion for the people
of this community.
In January 2001, Guthrie left Tren-
ton Medical Center and DeWayne
took over his position as C.E.O. after
having worked two and a half years
as finance officer.
"I had so much peace about leav-

ing because-I knew that DeWayne
would just take it and run," Guthrie
said. "He had so many ideas."
Guthrie said DeWayne's vision di-
rectly led to Trenton Medical Center
flourishing as it opened medical cen-
ters throughout north central Florida.
Above and beyond their' profes-
sional relationship, Guthrie said De-
Wayne was "the truest friend you
could ever have."
Not only was DeWayne successful
at Trenton Medical Center, he was
also an active fixture in the commu-
nity. He served as president of the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Com-
merce in li998 and 2000 and was
named Citizen of the Year in 2002.
He was also a past president of the
Trenton Rotary Club. DeWayne was
on the board of directors with the
Gilchrist County Democratic Execu-
tive Committee and past chairman
of the Salvation Army. He was also
a co-founder of the Gilchrist Glean-
ers, Inc. A member of First Baptist
Church of Trenton, DeWayie was
involved in numerous other civic or-
ganizations.
Despite his busy schedule, De-
Wayne's first priority was always his
family: his wife, Marsha, and their
four children, Parker, Claira, Owen
and Emma. In lieu of flowers, the
Yates family is asking that donations
be made to a scholarship fund that
has been established for the children
at both Ameris Bank and Drummond
Community Bank.
Funeral services for DeWayne
will be held at 3 p.m. on Saturday at
First Baptist Church of Trenton. De-
Wayne's longtime pastor, Bro. Rick
Lawrence, will be officiating. Inter-
ment will follow in Bethel Cemetery.
The Yates family will be receiving
friends on Friday evening from 5
p.m. to 8 p.m. at First Baptist Church
of Trenton.
Long after his funeral service is
held, DeWayne will be remembered
as a family man, who had a strong
faith in God, love for the Gators and
good food. DeWayne loved to cook,
talk politics and spend time with the
ones he loved,
Above all, DeWayne will be re-
membered as an all around great
guy who loved his family, his many
friends and the community he called
home.

old family heirloom? Bring it to the
Antique Road Show on Friday, Mar.
12 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the

1st annual Run raises Funcs for mission work


By Carrie A. Mizell
Fifty people participated in Pine
Grove Baptist Church's 1st Annual
8K Run/2 Mile Walk on Saturday
morning.
The event served as a fundraiser
for the church's 10-member mission
team, who are planning a trip to Be-
lize June 18-24.
According to Jared Douglas, col-
lege and career leader at Pine Grove
Baptist Church, the church netted
$945 on Saturday, all of which will
go towards the church's first mission
trip to southern Belize. Douglas said
that details of the mission work have
not been finalized, though tentative
plans include home renovation work
on an existing home.
"We did not set a financial goal for
Saturday; we left it open to God,"
Douglas said. "I am excited with the
turnout we had and I think the event
is only going to grow from here."
In all, 33 people ran along the
Greenway Trail on Saturday morn-
ing and 17 people walked the course,
stopping only for water breaks along
the route.
Pine Grove Baptist Church would
like to thank the event's 41 spon-
sors, along with the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, the Nature Coast
Greenway Trail, the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce, City of Tren-
ton and the plethora of volunteers
who gave of their Saturday morning.
According to Douglas, the church
plans to make the 8K Run/2 Mile
Walk an annual fundraiser for mis-
sion projects.

A group of local women were
among 23 garden club menibers from
-throughout the state of Florida to
converge on the state capital on Feb.
16 for a Florida Spring Rally.
According to Joan Pryor, of the Su-
wannee River Garden Club, the ladies
gathered on the steps of the capital in
an effort to show they are sad by the'
fact that Florida's springs are becom-
ing polluted and losing their flow.
The event was coordinated by Jim
Stevenson, a springs advocate, and
kicked off when six relay runners
from McClay High School ran up to
the capital with a bottle of water they
brought from Wakulla Springs, some
16 miles from Tallahassee.

Numerous legislators spoke at the
rally, including Senator Lee Constan-

Dennis Jones, Senator Charles Deen,
Senator Paula. Dokery and Senator
Eleanor Sobel. Representatives Leon-

Vasliada were also there to support a
protection bill that is being sponsored
by Senator Constantine.
While in Tallahassee, the members
visited legislators presenting their
position papers and bottles of spring
water.
According to, Pryor, the state gar-

groups, hope the rally will be the fi-

Gloria Comstock will take mem-

Refreshments will be served at 9:30

Antique quilts often are stored
in closed museum rooms because
they are too fragile to display. As a
result, few people are. able to view
these works of art. Mrs. Comstock,
as master of arts candidate in quilt
studies at the University of Nebraska
at Lincoln, researched the work of
Hortense Beck of Topeka, Kansas, as
partof her course work. Ms. Beck,
herself a student of museum quilts,
'sought to reproduce the fragile works
of art in fabrics available to her in the

It should not be lost on the student of scripture that
unlike the wisdom of men, the walls of the city were not

built ninety-two years after the first group of captives

represented the protection of Jehovah upon the people; the
walls represented -the protection of the people by the people

28:16).
The heart must first be restored to proper worship and
the temple of God's grace must be established upon the
foundation of our lives. Wisdom begins with the heart
being established with trust in God and not trust in men.
Building the temple is affirming the presence of the Lord.
The temple is a place of holiness and purity. It is a place of
security and safety. The captives first put their trust in the
Lord. Their faith and courage in the face of discouragement
led them to build the Temple of God. Our faith and courage
will lead us in the challenges of life to build the temple of
God upon our hearts.
There will be opposition to the building the temple of
God upon our hearts as there was in the captive's days.
With the power of God we can overcome and succeed in
setting up our own "Ebenezer" (1 Samuel 7:12) as the
stone of help. Building the Temple first sought the help of
God first. Let us build our temple of faith to the Lord. The
walls will come later. First, build the temple.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


I would like to use this space to
salute a fine young man that was a
tremendous asset to our community.
DeWayne Yates will be missed by
,many, but he has left a legacy that
will not be soon forgotten. DeWayne
,spent his adult life selflessly helping
others. He didn't just talk the talk, he
walked the walk and our county is a
better place because he was here.
Several months ago one of De-
Wayne's longtime friends shared the
following prayer with us after going
to visit DeWayne. At the time we
were all beginning to realize that he
might not recover from his illness.
I thought this prayer described how
many of us felt about DeWayne.
Sadly I don't have the words to write
this well so the decision wasmade to
share this prayer.

A Prayer for
'De&Wayne
Dear Heavenly Father,
It is with heavy heart I come to
you on bended knee, Lord. I ask to-
day for a miracle, Lord. My friend,
is coming home to You, Lord, but he
is coming home too soon. His name
is Dewayne Yates, although I know
You know him already. He is a great
man Lord, but I know you know that
as well. He came to know You in his
heart when we were in elementary
school. I know this because I was
there when he took those steps down
the aisle at the First Baptist Church.
He is husband, a father, a son, and, a
brother. He shows Your love to our
community that I personally have
been too selfish to do. He does this
by working to help those that need a
helping hand up Lord, not a dispar-
aging look down. You see Lord, he
is a hot meal during the holidays for
those of us less fortunate. He is health
care for those that need it. He.helps a


child have a Christmas that otherwise
would not. He is a man of vision that
turned a little medical center in Tren-
ton into a health care provider for
thousands. Gilchrist County is a bet-
.ter place because of Dewayne, Lord.
So I ask again today Lord, for a
miracle. I pray that You touch his
body and rid him of the terrible dis-
ease. If any person I know deserves
and has earned it, it is Dewayne. I ask
that You touch a doctor's heart and
work through them to save my friend,
Lord. I ask that the cancer be taken
from his body, Lord. Lord, I ask that
he be allowed to attend Parker's and
Owen's football games years down
the road. Lord, I ask that he be al-
'lowed to walk Clara and Emma down
the aisle one day with the pride and
joy only a father giving away his little
girl can show. Lord, I ask that he be
given the chance to grow old with his
wife Marsha. Lord, I ask you to spare
Mr. Paul and Ms. Pat the pain of los-
ing a son. I ask that you spare Dana
the agony of losing a brother. Lord, I
ask that You keep him on earth doing
Your work; He has more to do here
before You call him home, Lord.
I know You have a plan for us all,
Lord. It's in Your hands now. Lord,
the doctors tell .us they can do no
more to stop the cancer that is rav-
aging his body. I pray that You grant
him a miracle and save my friend's
life. If it.is Your will, Lord, that he
come on home to You, I pray that You
give his family comfort in knowing
he is in Heaven with you as they trav-
el down the road of life. I pray that
You take this pain from their hearts. I
pray You take the pain from my heart,
Lord.
So Lord, please hear our prayers
and grant us the miracle of a cure. We
love you Dewayne.
In Christ's name I pray,
Amen

Veronica and Julia Riordan got their dream snow as far as the eye could
see! They live in Virginia just 20 minutes from downtown DC. Their dad is
stationed there with the U.S. Army. They received 31 inches of snow in the
recent blizzards and other than a lot of shoveling, everyone including Mom
and Dad (Matt & Annmarie) really enjoyed the extra days together in the
snow, especially the sledding! The girls want to say hello to their grandpar-
ents, Denis and Joan Marie Riordan!

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 or to earn
income.
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyone in 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 forn MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) does 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 I 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 I of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
I) 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 I 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.


To inquire for more information about
Tangible Personal Property please contact:
Damon C. Leggett
Gilchrist County Property Appraiser

Trenton, Florida 32693
(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208
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 I would 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 ifI 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?
S 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

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 fora few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature.

be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.

A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April I. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per

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.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Hefeart Matters
By: Angle Land


SRWMD employee chosen for

engineering achievements


"This is my Son, whom I love; with
Him I am well pleased." The Bible
records God's declaration of love
in Matthew 3:17, following Jesus'
baptism and marking the beginning
of his ministry here on earth. The
Father was obviously delighted with
His Son. I have always believed that
God uses the Father and Son connec-
tion to describe His relationship to
Jesus so that it would be more com-
rehensible for us...and'today maybe
do understand at least a hint of what
this verse describes.
SMy oldest son, Cory, just celebrat-
ed his 21st birthday... and twenty-one
jrears ago his Daddy and I experi-
enced the single greatest change of
our lives! Admittedly, there were
times over the last several years that
We wondered if we would make it...
(any parents relate?) But we did...
and on this side there is such an over-
whelming love for our firstborn and
anticipation for his future ...and for
our second, and our third. Being the
61ldest, Cory always paved the way
for his brother and sister...break-
ing his parents in to all the ups and
downs of raising children. More than
once we have realized a better way to
handle a situation after going through
it the first time with him. I guess that
is the burden of being the oldest, and
Perhaps explains the Jewish custom
of the firstborn receiving the double
portion of inheritance. Maybe they
deserve it!
It is easy for us to understand why
God was well pleased with Jesus...
4fter all He walked through life per- "
fectly and without sin. Our children,
fike their parents, inherited and strug-
gle with a sin nature. Being "well
Pleased" with our children can be a
daily variable, but what if we made
it a decision that was based more on
Wvho they are than what they achieve?
I believe it is intentional that God
pronounced His declaration before
Jesus' ministry even began...He had
yet to perform any miracles or preach
any sermons...or complete His amaz-
ing work on the cross. Yet, God was
pleased with Him...because of who
He was, not his accomplishments.
This perspective should encourage us

not to discount decisions our children
make that might not be our prefer-
ence, realizing they are different and
separate from us. Hopefully it will
also make it easier for us to relax and
allow our children to make mistakes,
stumble and learn...and grow, with-
out fear that their struggles reflect
some flaw in us.
So on this anniversary of being a
parent for 21 years and having raised
our firstborn to be a "legal adult," of
this we are sure: Cory...we are well
pleased with you, because you are
created in the image of God, and God
has fearfully and wonderfully made
you...to love life, your family and
helping others...to enjoy a home-
cooked meal, the history channel and
competition of any kind. He made
you one of a kind...unique! We are
well pleased because out of all the
parents God could have given you,
He gave you to us...and we are for-
ever blessed because of it, and watch
with anticipation to see how your life
unfolds. We pray that our love has
given you roots that will help you
find your wings...
"I know the plans I have for you,"
declares the Lord, "plans to prosper
you and .not harm you, and to give
you a hope and a future." Jeremiah

North Central Florida

Regional Planning Council

opposes transfer of water


Submitted
The North Central Florida Region-
al Planning Council at their meet-
ing on January 28, 2010, adopted
SResolution 2010-01 opposing the
interbasin transfer of water and the
establishment of a central regulatory
commission for water resources sup-
ply development. The Council has
found that the existing state policy of
"local sources first" combined with
the protection of minimum flows and
levels for natural resource protec-
tion and future growth and economic
development is the most appropriate
approach to statewide water supply
planning and consumption. In ad-
dition, the Council supports the fun-
damental principles of Florida Water
Law which require a showing that a
proposed use of water is a reasonable,
beneficial use, will not interfere with
an existing legal use of water and is'
consistent with the public interest.
The Council, whose members are
local elected officials and gubernato-
rial appointees, administers a variety
of state and federal programs for north

The Trenton Elementary School Pre-K class of Mrs. Weaver and Mrs. Hea-
ton were involved in sending and receiving valentine mail through their in-
class post office.
The class had a mail drop box at the front door to their classroom and the
children made postcards to send to their friends. They would drop them in
the drop box along with other letters that were sent to the class from different
administrators in the county. During the class's center time, the kids would
take turns playing the postman and putting the postcards and letters in the
correct mailboxes.
On Valentine's Day they each got a turn putting their cards in their class-
mates' boxes and then everyone got to go "check their mailbox" for mail.
It was really a fun week for the students and the teachers, Mrs. Weaver ex-
plained.

Progress Energy
Florida launches new
web site
Submitted
Progress Energy Florida has devel-
oped a new tool to provide custom-
ers easy access to rate information
and help them better understand their
electricity bills. The ,new Web site
for Florida customers, www.prog-
ress-energy.com/floridarates. pro-
vides facts on rates and includes a
detailed customer bill explanation.
Visitors to the Web site can also learn
how rates are set and the ways cus-
tomers benefit from investments in
the electrical infrastructure. The site
also links to resources to help cus-
tomers reduce their energy usage and
lower their monthly bills.
Electric rates for Progress Energy
Florida customers will remain rela-
tively flat following the recent Flor-
id 'Public' Service Commission rate
case decision. Beginning with Febru-
ary 10 billing (which reflects the past
month's usage), residential customer
rates will decrease $0.42 (0.3 percent)
per 1,000 kilowatt-hours (kWh) for
an average total bill of approximately
$126.90. The average commercial
and industrial customer impact, will
be a 0.2 to 0.4 percent decrease to the
total bill.
On January 11, the Florida Public
Service Commission (PSC) final-
ized Progress Energy's 2010- base
rate case. As part of their decision,
the PSC denied any increase in base
rates over what was approved in July
2009. That rate change covers up-
grades to the Bartow power plant,
located on Weedon Island in St. Pe-
tersburg. The output of the plantwas
nearly doubled and the fuel source
was switched from oil to cleaner,
more cost-efficient natural gas. As
a result, customers are benefiting
through cleaner air, lower fuel costs
and greater reliability.
Progress Energy Florida, a sub-
sidiary of Progress Energy (NYSE:
PGN), provides electricity and relat-
ed services to more than 1.6 million
customers in Florida. The company is
headquartered in St. Petersburg, and
serves a territory encompassing more
than 20,000 square miles, including
the cities of St. Petersburg and Clear-
water, as well as the Central Florida
area surrounding Orlando. Progress
Energy Florida is pursuing a balanced
approach to meeting the future ener-
gy needs of the region. That balance
includes increased energy-efficiency.

Hugh Thomas speaking about water.

Hugh Thomas speaks to local

6th grade ag. students
By: Amber Ginn, UF Agricultural Education Intern
On Wednesday, February 17, 2010, Mr Hugh Thomas of the Suwannee
River Water District came to Trenton Middle/High School to speak with Mrs.
Rucker's 6th grade class about water pollution and the sand/limestone to-
pography unique to this area. The class learned some interesting facts about
water as it pertains to the North Central Florida area. They also watched an
exciting video on the underwater cave system and how divers explore these
caves still searching to find out exactly how big the aquifer which lies under
this area really is, as it is still unknown. The students also learned about the
dangers of over fertilization by farmers and home owners as well as gasoline
run-off which adversely affect both the ground and surface waters that com-
prise the springs, caves, and aquifer in this area. Mr. Thomas, emphasized to
these students that protecting and preventing destruction to.these waters is
extremely important as our lives depend on this vital resource.

seem to be sufficient for all the acts
of kindness our family has received
over the last few weeks. For all the
calls, cards, flowers, food and visits
please accept our deepest gratitude
and appreciation. Through the loss
of our mother your prayers could be
felt and helped to keep us strong.
We owe special thanks to the won-
derful caregivers we were blessed to
have entered our lives during the last
three years. So to Wanda Niemer-
,,shien, Bridgett Dishman andiKathryn
Houser, we are sb grateful.' '-'
And last, to everyone at Hospice
Haven in Chiefland, you were truly
an answer to prayer. Not only did
you provide for our mother's needs
with extreme respect and dignity, you
met the needs of our family as well.
Again, thank you. We truly live in
a community with caring and loving
friends.

Transportation fee for Santa Fe

College clears first hurdle in

legislation process


The Senate Higher Education Com-
mittee passed Senate Bill 208 today
which gives Florida Community Col-
lege Board of Trustees the authority
to establish a transportation fee. The
fee allows Santa Fe College to enter
an agreement with the Gainesville
Regional Transit System to provide
services similar to an agreement be-
tween the University of Florida and
the transit company. Representative
Charles "Chuck" Chestnut is the
sponsor for the House companion
bill, HB 255, which also passed its
first committee today.
With this legislation, Santa Fe Col-
lege students will be able to have
unlimited ridership on RTS buses for
a fee that comes out of their tuition.
The bill stipulates that a maximum
of $6.00 per credit hotr may be col-


elected for the fee. The fee is also not
covered by the Florida Bright Futures
Program.
"I am glad we cleared the first
hurdle, and I am very proud of the
several Santa Fe College students
who spoke before the committee to
express their support," commented
Oelrich. "The students have been
advocating and lobbying for this bill
for the past eight years. Last year the
bill made it to the Governor's desk
but was unfortunately vetoed. Hope-
fully, it will be signed into law this
year."
Senator Oelrich and Representative
Chestnut have sponsored this legisla-
tion in previous sessions. The bill is
now headed to the Senate Higher Ed-
ucation Appropriations Committee.

Fanning

Springs

happenings

The Fanning Springs Chamber of
Commerce held its annual banquet
at the Otter Springs Resort Lodge re-
cently. We had a nice turnout and ev-
eryone enjoyed a very nice meal that
was catered by O So Sweet of Wil-
liston. Some of the ladies brought a
number of appetizers' for everyone
to enjoy prior to the program getting
underway. I
President Becky Sanford wel-
comed everyone and had each one
introduce themselves and the busi-
ness they represented. Velma Poole
then gave a report on the Festival of
Lights and how well the chamber did
despite the bad weather we had that
day. She thanked the sponsors that
helped provide some of the funding
for the event. She also brought ev-
eryone up to date on the membership
of the chamber and encouraged ev-
eryone to work together to increase
membership.
,Donna Creamer, Executive
Director for Pure Water Wilderness,
gave a brief update on how the many
chambers in the Tri County area work
together to benefit our communities.
She also mentioned that we would
be holding the 4th Annual Tourism
Summit on Sept. 14th with our theme
being "Discover the Treasures of
Pure Water Wilderness."
Velma Poole stated that the cham-
ber would be doing a "Dessert" booth
at the Quilt Festival that will be held
in Trenton on March 13th. All of the
events will be in and about the Train
Depot. This will be the first fund
raiser for the chamber, and she asked
members to create their favorite des-
serts to be sold that day.
The Business of the Year selected
was Chompers Diner of Fanning
Springs. Owners Glen and Rebecca
provided Free Thanksgiving dinners
to over 200 persons that would not
have had the traditional holiday din-
ner otherwise. Though they would
have been closed that day, they and
their staff gave up part of their day to
prepare and serve those that came in.
The Suwannee River Cruisers Boat
Club was awarded the Non Profit Or-
ganization plaque for their tireless
work to help sponsor the Festival of
Lights Boat Parade and the yellow
Rubber Ducky race each year.
Volunteers Herb and Angie Clark
were recognized for helping with
-the Festival by having the hot coffee
and chocolate along with doughnuts
bright and early that day for every-
one.' Vince and Pat Arcadia were
also recognized for the hard work
they do with Toys for Tots to insure
many families in the area have a nice
Christmas.
The Life Time Achievement award
was presented to Roger and Becky
Sanford who were among the found-
ers of the Chamber. Becky has
served as President the past year and
is the President of the Suwannee Riv-
er Cruisers Boat Club as well. They
both work very diligently to serve
their communities.
Also recognized for their volunteer
work and service were Jay and Jane
Durching of Fanning Springs Ice Co.,
and Ron Tucker, President of the Tri
County Cruising for Grins Car Club.
Dennis and Sandra Sweeney were
honored for their volunteer work at
the chamber as were Elvin & June
Ladewig. George and Renate Smith,
owners of A Point of View Antiques,
were recognized for their many con-
tributions to the communities.
Many nice door prizes were award-
ed to some lucky ticket holders and
the 50/50 drawing was won by some-
one that donated it back to the cham-
ber. What a nice gesture!
President Becky Sanford gave her
closing remarks and thanked all that
have helped throughout the past year
and then passed the gavel to the in-
coming President, Velma Poole.

Lower Suwannee

National Wildlife

Refuge Nature Walks
Submitted
The February Nature Walk which
took place on the Levy County side
of the Refuge went very well with a
number of birds seen. They started
out on the River Walk and although
sometimes that walk has few birds,
on February 1 there were at least
18 species...then on to Shell' Mound
where the highlight was White Peli-
cans and another 23 species, An inter-
esting spotting was an immature Bald
Eagle that took some study before it
was identified as a second or third
year bird. Bald Eagles don't have
their adult plumage until the fourth
year; so if you see a large brown bird
that isn't a vulture, you may want to
get out your bird book and study the
immature Bald Eagles carefully.
On March 1, we will again visit
Dixie County. We will meet at the
Fire Station on CR 349 just north of
the town of Suwamnee at 9 a.m. on
March 1, 2010. Please RSVP if you
plan to go, Joan Stephens 352-463-
1095.

ery meeting and our Valentine's Party
was fun, full of love and delicious.
It's hard to beat a combination like
that and it surely does warm a body
through and through.
Well, sir, seven Joyful Heats head-
ed south to Tampa to investigate the
goings-on at the Fair. What a time
Diana Lynn, Jackie Moore, Linda
Berry, Kathy Fink, Betty Jo Bauch-
man, Elaine Nemeth and Patsy Luka
had. They all came back with stories
to share and made the rest of us sorry
we hadn't gone as well. Not only did
they nosh on that wonderful fair food
but they ate dinner at the Cracker
Barrel in Gainesville as well.
All in all, we had 10 items entered
in the Fair's various competitions.
SCongratulations to Patsy Luka who
took a first place blue ribbon for her
multi-colored knitted afghan. They
also are in order for Jackie Moore
who won a second place red ribbon
for her yellow Swedish weaving.
And we can't forget Elaine Nemeth's
honorable mention for her lime green
and pink "God's Sense of Humor"
calendar quilt.
Speaking of calendars, there are
lots of quilting activities on the hori-
zon. Come to our next meeting.
We celebrated our February birth-
days...Grace Vaught, Diana Lynn
and Myrle Gilkey..with Jeff's oh so
yummy "Martha Washington" cake,
Diana's favorite.
We're all getting a little older and
along with that some aches and pains
that seem to slow us down...and we
need to expect that and accept that but
as Albert Einstein once said, "Life is
like riding a bicycle. To keep your
balance you must keep moving."

Countrywide
settlement checks
soon to be distributed
Submitted
Attorney General Bill McCollum
announced that more than 2,700
people will, receive checks from a
2008 settlement his office obtained
with Countrywide. Financial Cor-
poration. As part of the settlement,
Countrywide is offering foreclosure
relief payments to eligible borrowers
who returned valid and timely Claim
Forms and Releases under a program
administered by the Countrywide
settlement administrator. More than
$16.9 million will be distributed this
week, and each check will be written
for just over $6,000.
"These checks will make a sig-
nificant difference for Floridians who
are trying to save their homes," said
Attorney General McCollum. "This
will provide real relief to struggling
homeowners and families."
In July 2008, the Attorney General
filed a lawsuit against Countrywide,
one of the nation's largest mortgage
companies, for allegedly engaging
in deceptive and unfair trade prac-
tices. The Attorney General's lawsuit
claimed Countrywide put borrowers
into mortgages they couldn't afford
or loans with rates and penalties
that were misleading. That lawsuit
was resolved in October 2008, and
the settlement agreement included a
foreclosure relief payment program
for Florida homeowners with quali-
fying Countrywide mortgages..
Important information for check
recipients:
.The checks must be cashed on
or before May 13, 2010.
The payment under this settle-
ment may be taxable, and recipients
should consult a tax advisor if they
have any questions concerning their
possible tax liabilities as a result of
this payment.
Recipients with any questions
about their checks or other matters
relating to- the settlement should
contact the settlement administrator,
Rust Consulting, toll free at 1-866-
411-6987, or visit http://www.coun-
trywidesettlementinfo.com.
Under the settlement, the Attorney
General also obtained $4 million to
fund foreclosure defense assistance
program. The money will be provid-
ed to organizations over the course
of two years, and the first funds were
distributed in late 2009. The organi-
zations that receive the grants agree
to provide free legal assistance to eli-
gible homeowners who face foreclo-
sure but cannot afford an attorney to
review their case.
"These resources, both the checks
to homeowners and the grants to
fund pro bono foreclosure defense
assistance, are substantial assets to
Floridians," said Heather Rodriguez


of Holland & Knight law firm and
president of the Legal Aid Society of
the Orange County Bar Association,
one of the organizations that received
grant funding and has an attorney
dedicated to foreclosure defense
assistance. "Orange and Osceola
Counties are both high in foreclosures,
and homeowners are struggling. We
appreciate the Attorney General's
commitment to assist our residents."

gelo Mozilo was also named in the

case against him is still pending in
Broward County Circuit Court. The
Attorney General has also called on
Bank of America, the company that
acquired Countrywide after the law-,
suit had been filed, to be more re-
sponsive to consumers who are try-
ing to modify their loans and save
their homes from foreclosure.
More information about the At-
torney General's- efforts to protect
Florida consumers and homeowners
is available online at http://www.my-

Cody Norton won first place in
the intermediate division, followed
by Hannah Hart in second place and
Haelyn Saunders in third place.
In the senior division, second place
went to Orrie Branch. Amy Anderson


took third place and Chance Wilson
placed fourth.
The 4-H poultry group would like
to thank Mr. Glynn Webber and Mr.
Steve Broker for preparing them for
this contest!

One local radio broadcaster was
honored during the month of Febru-
ary for the work she does to promote
Southern Gospel Music, church work
and the tri-county community.
Rhonda Cook, station manager for
WTBH (91.5), a Chiefland-based
gospel radio station, was named
Golden Mic Award recipient for the
month of February 2010.
Cook was selected by a panel of
Singing News.and Southern Gospel
Music radio executives for the out-
standing award, which comes with
a Golden Mic figurine and a feature
article in the Singing News.
"As I broadcast Southern Gospel,
it's my prayer that listeners will be
encouraged, uplifted and that the
seemingly hopeless will be pointed
to the' blessed hope in Jesus," Cook
said. "I am humbled to receive the
Golden Mic Award and most appre-
ciative to all those involved with my
selection."
WTBH was founded in 1987 by
Cook's father Pastor Ron Cason. The
radio station, which is owned by Long
Pond Baptist Church, broadcasts only
Southern Gospel music and Christian
programming 24 hours a day, seven

the radio station as disc jockey much

long before .she began taking on
other roles at the station. Then, in
