Woman who criticized Sheriff arrested for shoplifting


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Fanning Springs woman who
criticized Sheriff Daniel Slaughter's
professionalism in a Nov. 4, 2010
'Letter to the Editor' was arrested last
Wednesday and charged with shop-
lifting from JCPenney.
Sherry Lynn Hayes-Luzader,
of 9059 Florida Street in Fanning
Springs, was arrested by Alachua
County deputies and charged with


one count of grand theft. Jessica
Kathleen Bellot, of 39 NE 243rd Av-
enue in Cross City, was also arrested
and charged with one count of grand
theft.
After being arrested, the two wom-
en admitted to working together to
steal more than $1,000 worth of mer-
chandise from the JCPenney store in-
side the Oaks Mall in Gainesville.
According to deputies, loss pre-


vention employees at JCPenney ob-
served the two women enter the store
without shopping bags and later walk
out with bags filled with multiple
items, including silverware, drapes
and cookware. Both Hayes-Luzader
and Bellot.were booked into the Ala-
chua County Jail on January 5 and re-
leased the following day on their own
recognizance.
Sherry Lynn Hayes-Luzader made


the news in November when she pub-
licly criticized Sheriff Slaughter and
his administration for not acknowl-
edging that she had solved a crime
in Gilchrist County and also for not
hiring her 'for a position within the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office be-
cause she was "overqualified" for the
job. In the letter, Hayes-Luzader also
said that she was working on her sec-
ond doctorate degree.


$300,000 loss reported in barn fire


By Carrie A. Mizell
The riding lawn mower, motor
home and round bales of hay that
burned up last Tuesday when Har-
old Myers' barn caught fire can all
be replaced. The antique tractor
Myers spent countless hours re-
storing will not be quite so easy.
Myers and his grandson had been
working inside the machine shop,


which was inside his barn on SE 47th
Place in southeast Gilchrist County,
shortly before the fire began.
According to a fire report provided
by the Gilchrist County Department
of Public Safety, the fire ignited with
a spark, ember or flame from oper-
ating equipment that was apparently
left too close to combustibles.
The fire reportedly escalated once


it got into an estimated 2,500 round
bales of hay stored inside the open
barn.
Personnel from Gilchrist County
Fire Rescue, along with firefighters
from the Trenton Fire Department,
were called to the barn fire at 4:13
p.m. and arrived on scene at 4:26
p.m.
When personnel arrived on scene,


the fire was already fully involved
as Myers worked to keep the fire
from getting close to his home.
In all, 11 fire trucks were called to
the scene as 21 firefighters worked
the fire.
Myers reported $100,000 in
property loss and $200,000 was es-
timated for contents inside the barn
that burned.

Bell man arrested, charged with


burglarizing Old
By CarrieA. Mizell
A 22-year-old Bell man was recent-
ly arrested after allegedly breaking
into an Old Town home and stealing
almost $10,000 worth of property. 't
Michael Wayne Smith, of Bell, has
been charged with three counts of
burglary, three counts of dealing in
stolen property, one count of felony
criminal mischief and one count of
grand theft. *iiip
According to Major Scott Harden "
of the Dixie County Sheriff's Office,
dispatch received a call on Dec. 28,
2010 that suspicious activity was tak- F

certaining that several of the items in
the truck were stolen, deputies placed

Through further investigation over
the following days, deputies were
able to determine that some of the
items were stolen from the Old Town
home, which belongs to a Port St.
Lucie couple who only occasionally
spend time in Dixie County.
Once contacted, the couple made
arrangements to travel to Dixie
County to verify that their home had
been broken into and determine how
much property had been stolen. After
looking over their home, the couple
said that approximately $9,500 worth
of merchandise was stolen.
At press time, the Dixie County
Sheriff's Office had recovered $3,000
worth of the property and the investi-
gation remains ongoing.
Smith is being held at the Dixie
County Jail on no bond.


Rolling Hills subdivision

requests 1/4 acre lots


By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County resident Jon Gray
appeared before the Bell Town Coun-
cil Thursday evening to request the
council to approve a text amendment
to allow 14 acre lots to be platted in
the Rolling Hills subdivision. Gray,
a contractor and owner of the Roll-
ing Hills development in northeast
Bell, gave the council an update on
the plans for the Rolling Hills subdi-
vision. At the present time, there are
28 one-half-acre lots in Rolling Hills.
He asked the Town Council if they
would allow 19 of those lots be re-
duced to one quarter acre.
Gray explained the concept for the
change is to allow the subdivision for
people age 55 years and older to have
smaller investments in the homes and
property package when they retire
and move to the rural community in
Bell.
Bell attorney David M. Lang ex-
plained to the council the Town of


Bell currently has a category for one-
fourth acre lots for residential devel-
opment. The Bell Council would need
to submit a text document request to
the North Central Florida Regional
Planning Council to amend the Town
of Bell Land Use regulations to allow
this change.
"If the resized lots and homes don't
sell, would you then consider low in-
come housing in this development,"
Larry Sutton, Bell Councilman asked.
"We don't need this type of develop-
ment in Bell," Sutton explained.
Gray told the council this concept
is not new, just new to this area. The
retirement residence concept would
have deed restrictions that would
keep this development a nice, quiet
area for people living here, he added.
"When I purchased this property from
Mrs. Roberts, I committed to her that
we would build and sell nice, custom
homes in this subdivision. "I will not
stray from my commitment to Mrs.

Roberts," Jon Gray explained.
Bell Councilman Kenny Bass made
a motion to have the text changed to
allow a custom home on a 10,890
square foot lot in the Town of Bell.
Larry Sutton agreed by giving a sec-
ond to the motion before the council
voted in support of the action.

In the story of "The Ugly Duck-

a homely little bird matures into a
graceful swan. The story comes to
mind once again because of two com-
panies that were "ugly ducklings" a
year ago. The question is have they
have matured into beautiful swans in
the ensuing year? Perhaps...see what

ic's revenues increased to $1.68 bil-
lion, as compared to $1.64 billion a
year ago. This increase was primarily
attributable to growth in service rev-
enue, GYN surgical and diagnostic
product sales.
At the same time, the company
reported a net loss of $62.8 million,
or $0.24 per share, as compared with
a net loss of $2.22 billion, or $8.64
per share in 2009. However, included
in both numbers are charges for the
amortization of intangible assets, a
non-cash interest expense, charges
for the impairment of goodwill and
intangible assets, patent litigation
settlement charges and acquisition-
related costs and charges.
The Company's non-GAAP 2010
adjusted net income, which elimi-
nates non-cash and one-time charg-
es, was $308.0 million compared to
$303.9 million in fiscal 2009, while
non-GAAP net income per share for
2010 was $1.18.
A year ago my 2010 earnings es-
timate (non-GAAP) was $1.26 per
'share with a 12-month target price on
the shares of $17.50, for a potential
capital gain back then of 17 percent.
The shares recently closed at $19.08,
well exceeding my target. Still, non-
GAAP earnings were a bit lighter
than expected.
Looking at the intrinsic value of
the shares, the conservative free cash
flow to the firm methodology gen-
erates an intrinsic value, of $37 per
share, nearly double the recent clos-
ing price. However, negative earn-
ings invalidate the discounted earn-
ings approach.
Nonetheless, my earnings forecast
for this year, ignoring non-cash and
one-time expenses, is $1.28 per share
and $1.38 for 2012. My 12-month
target price for the shares is $22 for a
potential gain of 15 percent.
Next up is Teva Pharmaceutical
(TEVA), a company that develops,
produces and sells a range of generic
and branded pharmaceuticals.
A key to Teva's ongoing success
is that it deals heavily with low cost
generic medications. As Barron's re-
cently pointed out, Teva dominates a
$93 billion generic-drug industry that
could almost double in size by 2015.
At $52.14 per share, Teva's Ameri-
can depositary receipts are 25 percent
off a record-high close in March of
$65 amid worries about future earn-
ings growth and the fate of its top-
selling multiple sclerosis drug Co-
paxone. Copaxone is under siege
from two other generic manufactur-
ers.
Those fears are being overblown.
With the drug maker poised to dou-
ble in size over the next half decade,
Teva deserves to trade at better than
the 9.4 times forward earnings it now
commands.
For the quarter ended September
30, 2010, Teva reported net sales of
$4.3 billion, an increase of 20 per-
cent over the comparable period in
2009. Net income was $1.1 billion, a
62 percent increase over a year ago,
while earnings per share came in at
$1.15, up 60 percent from the same
period a year ago.


Who Really Goes To Hell?
(Kent Heaton)


Nobody likes to talk about death, taxes and that place
called hell. Fear of death, hatred of taxes and just plain
having no desire to talk about the "lake offire" (Revelation
20:14-15) will top any list of undesirable topics. A lot of
people have an opinion about death, everyone has a view on
taxes but very few know much about what the Bible says
about hell. The knowledge of hell comes only from the
Bible. That is because its Creator is the same one that
created the "heavens and the earth" (Genesis 1:1).
Jesus believed in Hell. He taught a lot of lessons on Hell.
"If your right eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it
from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your
members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into
hell" (Matthew 5:29). "And do not fear those who kill the
body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is
able to destroy both soul and body in hell" (Matthew
10:28). "Then He will also say to those on the left hand,
'Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire
preparedfor the devil and his angels'" (Matthew 25:41).
In the Saturday, January 8, 2011 edition of The
Gainesville Sun (p5D), a question was posed about who
really goes to hell. A grandfather discusses his grandson's
fear of hell by telling him that "veryfew people are going to
hell. He goes on to say, "Most people who do bad things
are actually going to heaven because they don't realize
they 're making mistakes. The grandfather concludes for his
grandson that God is so loving that He could not possibly
punish people in hell or that would make Him "an infinitely
horrendous ogre." His question was answered by a rabbi
named Marc Gellman that applauded the answers given to
the young boy. Gellman concluded that "hell is the place
where truly evil people receive the punishment they deserve


... for Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot, Idi Amin and every
unrepentant murderer torturer or purveyor of cruelty. "
You have to be a really, really bad person to go to hell?
You can be a bad person and go to Heaven but hell is for the
worse kinds of evil people? Is that what the Bible teaches?
Jesus told those in judgment to "Depart from Me, you
cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and
his angels" (Matthew 25:41) and the only thing they did
was to do nothing for others (see Matthew 25:41-46). Paul
described the following who would be condemned to hell:
fornicatorss, idolaters, adulterers, homosexuals,
sodomites, thieves, covetous, drunkards, revilers,
extortioners" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
When the Lord returns He will come "in flaming fire
taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on
those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus
Christ" (2 Thessalonians 1:8). Jesus declared that even
"religious people" will be cast into hell (Matthew 7:21-23).
The rich man was in a place of "torments" (Luke 16:23).
The parable of the tares (Matthew 13:24-30) concludes with
"all things that offend, and those who practice
lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire.
There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew
13:40-42). There is a lake of fire (Revelation 20:10,14,15;
21:8) and it will be filled with all those who reject God's
will.
The horrendous manner of Christ's death bears testimony
to the magnitude of what is at stake. Jesus died to give man
a choice: Heaven or hell. The grandfather and the rabbi
neglected to consult with the one who knows about hell. It
is real, it is reserved, it will happen. Jesus is the way, the
truth and the life (John 14:6). He is real!

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Exchange rate differences nega-
tively impacted sales in the third
quarter of 2010 by approximately
$122 million comparedto the third
quarter of 2009 as a result of a de-
cline in the value of certain European
currencies relative to the dollar.
The intrinsic value of the shares us-
ing the free cash flow model is $158
per share as compared to a recent
closing price of $52.14. However,
once again we have difficulty with
using the discounted earnings model,
which yields an intrinsic value of $46
per share due to exchange rate is-
sues.
My earnings estimate for 2009 was
$3.35 per share and the company
earned $3.37. My estimate for 2010
was $4.50, which I am revising to
$4.57 and $5.30 per share for 2011.
My 12-month target price for the
shares is $64 for a 22 percent capital
gain. There is also a 1.30 percent in-
dicated dividend yield.

The new year has started off with
a bang as a whole plethora of new
babies have come into the world. I
just imagine there are some grinning
grandparents as babies come home
to the Lancaster, Johnson, McKenzie
and Colson families.
I have been battling one of those
old wintertime colds this week so this
column is going to be short because
frankly I don't feel worth a toot.
Last week when I was still kicking
pretty high I tried a new recipe which
I changed up quite a bit of course.
The outcome was pretty good ac-
cording to my family. I would also
like to share what attracted me to
the recipe in the first place was the
dressing which included pepper jelly.
Lucky for me I have my own private
stash of pepper jelly, thanks to my
friend Donna Jones. If you are not
so lucky, pepper jelly can be found at
most grocery stores.
This dressing sounded so good that
I just had to try it and found out that
the dressing alone would be good on
any salad. It took only about 5 min-
utes to whip up this fresh homemade
dressing, and it is so much better
than bottled dressing from the store.
Over the weekend I made the dress-
ing again with just hot pepper jelly,
red wine vinegar, olive oil, salt and
pepper and minced garlic. This time
I poured it over fresh greens from our


garden, and it was once again really
good. Simple and good; now you just
can't beat that.
J/ac/ -eyea'2a f/ald


8 ounces of dried black-eyed peas
14 cup pepper jelly (red or green)
4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 Jalapeno pepper, seeded and
minced
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
(optional)
Salt and black pepper to taste
V cup chopped red or green bell
pepper
cup diced green onions
Soak dried black-eyed peas over
night. Then boil with about V2 tea-
spoon of salt until just tender. This
will not take long if the peas are
soaked first. Drain and let cool. Next
mix pepper jelly, vinegar, olive oil,ja-
lapeno, parsley, salt and pepper with
a whisk in a separate bowl; whisk un-
til dressing comes together. Mix red
pepper and onions with black-eyes.
Pour dressing over salad mixture and
toss. Chill for two hours or longer.
Note: To soak black-eyed peas or
any dried pea or bean, place them in
a large bowl and cover with about
6 cups of cool water. Cover and let
soak 8 hours or overnight.


Heart Matters


It is an obvious fact that driving
your car forward while staring into
the rearview mirror doesn't make
much sense.
If your gaze lasts too long, chances
are pretty good that you will find
yourself in the ditch...oryrashed into
the back of the car in froAt of you!
That being said, there is something
about human nature that makes it dif-
ficult to let go of that which is known
and familiar.
Even when we become obviously
uncomfortable, our comfort zone will
often still be favored over change.
The Bible records an example of
this very phenomenon in Genesis 19.
Seems that Abraham's nephew
Lot, along with the wife and kids are
living in the wicked city of Sodom...
very uncomfortably comfortable
among such wickedness. The culmi-
nation of the story occurs when God
decides enough is enough and the
city must be destroyed. On behalf of
'Uncle Abraham's faithfulness, God
sends two angels to give Lot and the
family the heads up about the coming
destruction:
With the coming of dawn, the an-
gels urged Lot, saying, "Hurry! Take
your wife and your two daughters
who are here, or you will be swept
away when the city is punished."
When he hesitated, the men grasped
his hand and the hands of his wife
and of his two daughters and led
them safely out of the city, for the
Lord was merciful to them." Genesis
19:15-16
Reading this passage in 2011 gives
us the advantage of hindsight and
while we are relieved that the fam-
ily was led (maybe dragged?) out of
danger, we marvel over the fact that
Lot "hesitated."
If the story ended here, we could
turn it into a "...and they lived happi-
ly ever after" fairytale type account.
The problem was much bigger than
getting Lot, Mrs. Lot and the girls
physically out of Sodom...the Lot
family had a "lot" going for them in
Sodom (pun intended!): wealth, po-
sition and that all important comfort


factor!
SSadly, the story doesn't have the
fairy tale ending...the Bible records
that Lot's wife "looked back" and
was turned into a pillar of salt.
We can't know all the reasons Mrs.
Lot had for looking back...perhaps
she was concerned about friends and
neighbors, or maybe wanted to check
to see if the house survived the fire, or
simply grieving over life as she knew
it. No matter the cause, the end result
of driving forward, while looking in
the rearview mirror is the same.
Living life looking back can also
be lethal to our marriages, family re-
lationships and friendships.
We can't move forward in life as
long as we cling to the past or to un-
healthy elements of our relationships
that we desperately need to leave be-
hind.
Who or what we were in the past
doesn't have to continue to be who
we are in the present, but we are in-
deed each responsible for that deci-
sion. The angels afforded Mrs. Lot
the opportunity for a new life, but
she refused to embrace it...and her
husband had to live it without her.
Don't allow your comfort zone to rob
you of a life shared with those you
love most.. .because your heart really
does matter!

CarolMcAclesher celebrates 100th birthday


Carol McAlesher celebrated her 100th Birthday on January 7.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Balloons and streamers filled the
recreation room at Tri-County Nurs-
ing Home as Carol McAlesher cele-
brated her 100th birthday on Friday.
Though she suffers from dementia
now, McAlesher used to love riding
motorcycles, specifically an Indian
motorcycle. As the nurses at Tri-
County Nursing Home say, "Carol is


a rebel. She was wearing pants and
riding motorcycles in a time when
women weren't doing that sort of
thing."
Originally from Iowa, McAlesher
has been a resident of Tri-County
Nursing Home since August 2006.
According to nurses at the Fanning
Springs facility, McAlesher enjoyed
playing cards and listening to music.

TAX SAVINGS NOTICE

TRENTON, FLORIDA 32693

Filing Period for Tax Saving Exemptions Ends March 1st

Additional Homestead Exemption
How does the "double homestead" work?
The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value
of a property used as a primary residence by a Florida resident by
$25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to
$25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000.

For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that
portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable
value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable
value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000).

This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed
value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or
otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp-
tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you, have
the Homestead Exemption already.

would first like to take a moment to
thank you for your support in 2010.
As the Executive Director of the

portunity to work with many of you
one on one. In visiting your busi-
nesses, selling you advertisements,
and getting you more involved with
the community, together we can be
successful in 2011. There are op-
portunities as Chamber members for
you to showcase your business. You
can host a Chamber Mixer or Open
House. I would like to help you plan
an evening of networking. If you have
any questions about the Chamber,
how to get involved, or even sugges-
tions, please do not hesitate to give
me a call at 352-463-3467. I look
forward to helping you promote your
business throughout 2011. Hope we
all have a Prosperous New Year!

Gilchrist bands march in governor's inaugural parade


By Sara DiPardo
On Tuesday, January 4, the
Inauguration Parade was held for the
new Florida Governor Rick Scott in
Tallahassee.
Parade officials and the Republican
Party offered $125 to each county to
provide participants for the parade.
Both the Bell High School and
Trenton High School Marching
Bands combined to represent our
wonderful county and were among
50 other marching bands. Other
bands who participated included
the Florida State Marching Chiefs,
FAMU Marching 100, Williston High
School, Baker County, Dixie County
and other surrounding marching
bands.


Our students marched along
Monroe Street or "Rick Scott Way,"
as it was temporarily named, and
marched directly in front of the
capitol. They even received a friendly
wave from our governor as they
marched playing "Armed Forces on
Parade." Both band directors, Sara
DiPardo and Stacey Trenteseaux,
could not have been more pleased
with the bands' performance.
We thank our school board for
letting us participate and letting
these students have a memory for a
lifetime and even a resume worthy
performance. Also we would like
to thank Caboodles in Trenton for
providing the bands with a wonderful
banner.


Sun names Chris Baker


Coach of the Year


By Carrie A. Mizell
Trenton High School's football
coach Chris Baker received an ear-
ly Christmas present, when he was
named Coach of the Year for Class
1A-1B by the Gainesville Sun.
Baker has been the Tigers head
coach for three seasons. In his first
two years at Trenton, the Tigers had
consecutive 2-8 seasons leading up to
2010 when the Tigers went 7-3.
"I am extremely honored to receive
this award," Baker said. "I think it
shows how far along we came this
season as a program. The whole
team and coaching staff share in this
award."
Baker said that the players per-
formed at a high level every week of
the season. The outcome of this is that
the Trenton Tigers football program
went from the bottom of the district
to one of the better-performing teams
in 2010.
"I am so proud of our team and re-
ally happy that Trenton football was
recognized for having such a great
season," Baker said. "My job this


Coach Chris Baker


year was not hard. It was one of the
best groups of young men I have ever
coached. Many of our players made
the All- Gainesville Sun list to prove
this point."
The Tigers head coach said he
is lucky to have such a great group
of assistant coaches in Mike Sauls,
Terry Parrish, and Stephen Welbers
on the varsity level. Also, Baker said
the JV staff of Jim Akins, Pat Green,
Mike Burnett, David Yurko and Erik


..z :, _...

The Bell High School and the Trenton High School Marching Bands represented Gilchrist County at the Inaugural Parade.

Rodriguez worked hard with all the
players to make 2010 special.
"Our success is a team effort,"
Baker said. "It is truly a pleasure to
work with such a great school and
community. I am proud to be a Tren-
ton Tiger."
The Gainesville Sun pointed out
that Trenton won five of its first r
six games of the season and scored
more than 40 points in six of their 10
games.
The Gainesville Sun also selected a
number of Trenton players as Players ".
of the Year for 2010. Junior Brandon .
Stone and Senior T.J. Caulkins were -
