Child pornography


collector arrested


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 31-year-old Gilchrist County
man was arrested last week after al-
legedly downloading multiple child
pornographic videos off the Internet.
According to Special Agent John
McDonald of the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement (FDLE), Scott
Michael Sheheane was collecting and
saving child pornography on a laptop
computer.
He has been charged with 13 felo-
ny counts of possession of child por-
nography.
Sheheane lives at 6650 SE 60th
Avenue, which is in southeast Gil-
christ County. He is reportedly un-
employed and lives in a wood frame
home owned by Tammie McWilliams
and William Heckert.
After obtaining a search war-
rant, special agents from FDLE and
deputies from the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office searched the home
and seized all computer hardware,
including a laptop computer, a web-
cam, headphones and five DVDs.
According to Special Agent Mc-
Donald, who is a member of the North
Florida Internet Crimes against Chil-
dren Task Force, Sheheane down-
loaded pornographic videos off the
Internet between April 17, 2010 and
October 14, 2010.
Sheheane was reportedly down-
loading and sharing child pornog-
raphy using peer-to-peer software.
Once downloaded, the child pornog-
raphy was then placed in a folder that


Scott Michael Sheheane


the computer user chose to publicly
share.
After being arrested Sheheane was
transported to the Gilchrist County
Jail, where he is currently being
held.
On Friday, Jan. 21 Sheheane ap-
peared before Judge Ed Philman,
who set his bond at $650,000, which
is $50,000 per count. A public de-
fender was assigned to Sheheane at
first appearance.
At press time, Sheheane was sched-
uled for arraignment on Thursday,
Jan. 27 at 9 a.m. Circuit Judge Mark
Moseley will preside.
Prior to the possession of child
pornography charges, Sheheane's ar-
rest history includes charges of oper-
ating a vehicle without a license and
worthless checks.


3,264 local residents

get food stamps


By Carrie A. Mizell
More families in Gilchrist County
are on food stamps than ever before,
according to an annual report just re-
leased by the Florida Department of
Children and Family (DCF).
A staggering 3,264 residents are
now on food stamps in Gilchrist
County. That is 19 percent of the
county's 17, 191 residents.
According to Steve White, AC-
CESS program administrator for
DCF, Gilchrist County had 474 resi-
dents apply for and get food stamps
between December 2009 and Decem-
ber 2010.
"That's a 16.99 percent increase
in one year, which is pretty high,"
White said in a phone interview on
Monday. "Interestingly enough, the
cash caseload is actually down in
Gilchrist County."
According to White; DCF's strin-
gent requirements on temporary cash


assistance, which include having
school age children, have deterred
many from applying.
In December 2009, 166 individu-
als in Gilchrist County had received
temporary cash assistance, whereas
in December 2010, 165 individuals
had received temporary cash assis-
tance from DCE
According to White, there are now
2,861 residents of Gilchrist County
now receiving Medicaid benefits. In
December 2009, there were 2,746
residents of Gilchrist County receiv-
ing Medicaid benefits.
In order to qualify for Medicaid
benefits, one must be a US national,
citizen or permanent resident in need
of health care/insurance assistance,
who would be considered low in-
come. One must also be either preg-
nant, have a child, or be responsible
for children under the age of 19 to
qualify.

to every kid in Gilchrist County.
Together, Bruce and Julie Thomas
were named 'Citizen of the Year'
at the Chamber of Commerce's an-
nual banquet last Thursday night.
Once high school sweethearts,
Bruce and Julie Thomas graduated
from Bell High School and both
went on to graduate from the Uni-
versity of Florida. Bruce joined the
Army and they spent almost eight
years away from Gilchrist County,
as Bruce worked to pay back 'the
military scholarship he was given.
A desire to raise their four chil-
dren in the community they grew
up in brought Bruce and Julie
Thomas back to Bell. Both together
and apart, the couple now works
tirelessly to give back to the com-
munity they call home.
While Julie serves on the Gilchrist
County School Board, coaches ath-
letic teams, runs a successful cater-
ing business and volunteers for any

seeing patients, Bruce is working on
the family farm, Diamond 99 Ranch.
Whether it's cooking for the football
team or the Education Foundation's
annual Beast Feast, or teaching Sun-
day school at their church, Bruce and
Julie Thomas give of themselves.
"Their genius is matched only by
their generosity," Sheree Lancaster
said while presenting the Citizen of
the Year award. "We are very lucky
to have this native son and daughter
return to Gilchrist County."

"Back then he had hair!" Reed said
on Monday, just before Bell High
School's Teacher of the Year was
named the District Teacher of the
Year.
While Smith spends his days teach-
ing scientific methods to middle and
high school students at BHS, his af-

"He's an exceptional teacher!"

The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion struck down earlier action they
had implemented to have county de-
partment supervisors complete daily
work log reports on the job each day.
The commission discussed that the
work logs were not being utilized in
a manner where they were useful to
the county.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
expressed that the Commission's
action had created additional paper
work that was not being utilized by
Gilchrist County. He made a motion
to delete the daily work log require-
ment from the supervisors' daily rou-
tine.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
gave a second to the motion, and the
board voted 4-1 in favor of the ac-
tion.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
explained that he was in favor of the
action when it was approved and was

Character Council's Personality of the Month


By Geneva Cornwell
Everyone naturally loves an en-
thusiastic, smiling, energy-giving
person.
Not only do enthusiastic people
enjoy life, but they help other people
enjoy it too. The enthusiastic person
treats every job as important by put-
ting their whole heart into it. They
certainly are not discouraged by fail-
ure, for they see failure as another
opportunity to try and try again.
It's like what Thomas Edison said
after developing a successful light
bulb after so many failures: "None of
my thousands of attempts could have
been failures, or I never could have
succeeded."
The enthusiastic person inspires
others and has a strong feeling for
life.
Enthusiastic people have a posi-
tive outlook and are optimistic in the
sense of looking for the best possible

capitalize on that potential. Enthusi-
astic energy-givers are people whose

asm, it creates vision and excitement
for the listeners. It gives the strength
to complete one more assignment
or take another step. Enthusiasm in-
spires and motivates.
Enthusiasm is a grand character
trait to begin the New Year, and the
Character Council would like to in-
troduce Mrs. Angie Rexroat, who
happens to be the enthusiastic ac-
tivities director at Ayers Health and
Rehab Center. Rexroat plans all of
the activities for the residents at Ay-
ers. She attended college in the Mi-
ami area before moving to Trenton in
2006. She accepted her position at
Ayers in 2007. The monthly themed
luncheons at Ayers bring smiles and
joy to the residents and their guests.
Rexroat feels that, besides herjob at
Ayers, being the mother of four lively
children ages 8 through 11 keeps her
very busy. She commented that she
teaches her children, "Having an at-


titude of enthusiasm creates better
relationships with people, whether-'
it is in the family, in school, in the
community or on the job." This exu-
berant young lady related that as she
focuses on the residents at Ayers, the
small mundane tasks do not seem so
mundane. She believes that the main
thing in building relationships is one
between children/youth and elders,
so she invites parents to see to it that
they spend time with the senior set of
folks. Angie gives her best effort to
each task which is set before her and
believes that in making one's life full,
it is necessary to get past the rough
spots very fast and move forward
with an enthusiastic attitude.
With enthusiasm as the beginning
character trait for 2011, it surely
promises to be a great year for ev-
eryone in our wonderful community.
as we all seek success in loving life
by way of enthusiasm.


Hipp Construction warned by

county to repair Otter Springs

Road within the budget


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
have given Virginia Johns of Hipp
Construction one last chance to work
with county engineer Lee Mills to
come up with a solution to correct
one mile of roadway on SW 70th Ave
in southeast Gilchrist County. If it
isn't fixed, the county commissioners
warned that they will resort to taking
revenue from the contractor's insur-
ance bond.
The commission had the construc-
tion company and the county engi-
neer in the January 18 meeting to take
action on fixing the road once and for
all, Commissioner D. Ray Harrison
explained.
The commission was told that al-
most $26,000 remained in the budget
to complete this project.
Commissioner Harrison made a
motion for Hipp Construction, Inc.
to correct the problems on this road
like it should have been done in the
beginning with the remaining funds
in the budget or the county will take
action to have funds withdrawn from
Hipp's insurance bond to complete
this project.
The board approved the motion by
a unanimous vote.


Virginia Johns, representing the
contractor John C. Hipp Construc-
tion, was awarded-the bid to resur-
face the road from CR 232 west to
the entrance to the Otter Springs Park;
in mid-2010.
While the contractor was working
to resurface this roadway, inclement
weather became an issue as heavy
rains soaked the project between the
times when the tack was applied and
the gravel was scheduled to be over-
layed.
Gilchrist County Transportation
Supervisor Billy Cannon told the
Commission that Gilchrist County
Road Department put over 300 loads
of limestone on this road to stabilize,
widen, and hold a crown on the road
to keep water from being an issue on
the driving surface.
Just before the project was fin-,
ished, the roadway began to develop
holes on the gravel surface.
County residents who routinely
traveled this road reported the high-
way was holding water when it rained
and the driving surface continued to
deteriorate. The commission took ac-
tion to stop the project, withhold pay-
ment to the contractor and take action
to repair the road correctly.

Here is a bit of advice. Friend-
ships, philanthropic endeavors and
social standing, while laudable, are
not qualifications to manage money.
Unfortunately, rising volatility and
the need to replace the yield lost from
minimal interest rate returns leads to a
willingness to gloss over credentials.
Add in a dollop of wishful thinking,
some rose colored glasses and voila,
you have a deadly combination.
You cannot rely on anyone to part
the Red Sea and guide you to the
Promised Land of high returns. It is
your responsibility to separate the
wheat from the chaff. Furthermore,
there is no relationship between his-
torical and future stock prices. The
past will not predict the future.
Does that mean you ignore histori-
cal data? No, you simply need to put
the data in proper perspective. Think
of it as a report card of corporate per-
formance. Looking at the most re-
cent earnings announcements, Apple
would merit an A, while Citigroup
would be taking home a D- and a no-
tice of detention.
Unfortunately, whenever there is
an increase in market ebullience,
there is also a tendency to add cre-
dence to boisterous prognosticators.
That is another mistake. Never take
the opinions you hear or read (includ-
ing mine) to.be the gospel.
And never let anyone pressure you
into making a quick investment deci-
sion. A person selling an investment
is unequivocally biased. It does not
matter how many letters they have
after their name, how sincere they
appear, or how long you have known
them, they sell for a living. Always
obtain an independent second opin-
ion, whether from your own research
or from an unbiased professional.
A no nonsense investment strat-
egy will help you get through what
will likely be at least another year of
economic turmoil. Furthermore, vir-
tually everyone, perhaps with a little
training, can learn to select quality
investments that will stand up to the
test of time.
For example, you might want to
give some thought to Abbott Labs, a
company appearing here for the first
time, particularly if dividends are an
important consideration. The com-

enue Assistance Payments (SURE)
program began on Jan. 10, 2011.
SURE is one of five disaster pro-
grams USDA Farm Service Agency
offers that provides assistance to
farmers and ranchers who have suf-
fered losses due to natural disasters.
"This program provides a tremen-
dous amount of assistance to produc-
ers who have suffered from natural
disasters, and is part of the 'safety
net' designed to assist farmers and
ranchers who feed America and the
world," Manning said. ."USDA en-
courages producers who suffered
losses during the 2009 crop year to
visit their local FSA office to learn
more about the SURE program."
To be eligible for SURE a farm
must have:
At least a 10 percent production
loss on a crop of economic signifi-
cance;
A policy or plan of insurance un-
der the Federal Crop Insurance Act
or the Noninsured Crop Disaster As-
sistance Program (NAP) for all eco-
nomically significant crops;

county that was declared a primary
disaster county or contiguous county

a Secretarial Disaster Designation.

What Is A Gospel Meeting?
(Kent Heaton)

Two or three times a year, the Trenton Church of Christ preachers lather up the word of God for hours. Now we
puts an ad in the paper about a "Gospel Meeting" that is move about in air-conditioned/heated, leather cushioned
taking place. For some the term "Gospel Meeting" may be. machines that transport us with ease to a building costing


confusing and many people may not realize what is going on
with a "Gospel Meeting. Somewhere in our past the phrase
was coined that describes what many more commonly
referred to as a "Revival. The use of revival is a good term
and often reflects the mood of the effort being put forth. A
gospel meeting can be a time of revival and the revival
should be a time of gospel preaching where people meet
together to enjoy the word of God.
In the days of old often tents would be erected in
communities and preaching would last for weeks as
preachers heralded the message of the Bible. It was quite an
event that would last long hours into the night. Somehow we
have become more sophisticated now and only meet for
shorter periods of time both in days and hours. Gone are the
drafty tents with hard seats replaced by comfortable
buildings with extra-padded pews -- and fewer people
attending.
The appeal of the Bible has been lost with the busy
pursuit of business and pleasure. Interest in learning about
the word of God has been replaced with television, ball
games, entertainment events and sheer boredom. Parents are
terrified at the prospect of gathering up their nest of children
to dress them and go off to a preaching revival. How will the
child perform in school or how can I get everything done in
a day to go spend 58 minutes in a service of worship? Young
people have too many fun things to do and older folks are
just too tired anymore.
We are a sad lot. In the days of yore people traveled in
wagons for miles to sit on wooden slats to listen to


hundreds of thousands of dollars to maybe stay 59 minutes
and complain about the long preaching.'They. say the mind
will only endure what the seat will offer. That is nothing
more than a false hope told by people who have little
interest in spiritual matters (explain why 65,000 people sat
in minus 1 degree weather to watch two football teams
battle for the AFC Championship).
What is a gospel meeting? It is what the early disciples
did in the book of Acts. "And they were preaching the
gospel there" (14:7). "And daily in the temple, and in
every house, they did not cease teaching and preaching
Jesus as the Christ" (5:42). "Therefore those who were
scattered went everywhere preaching the word" (8:4).
"Paul and Barnabas also remained in Antioch, teaching
and preaching the word of the Lord, with many others
also" (15:35). Preaching the kingdom of God and
teaching the things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ
with all confidence, no oneforbidding him" (28:31).
If you have never attended a gospel. meeting at the
Trenton Church of Christ, go to our website (below) and see
a special invitation for you to read that explains what to
expect and what not to expect when you attend our gospel
meeting. With the beginning of a new year, take this
wonderful opportunity to learn more about us and we pray
more about the word of God. Ask questions. Investigate.
Inquire. We welcome your interest. Our desire is to open the
Bible and let it be our guide. We look forward to seeing
you during our GOSPEL MEETING JAN 30 FEB 4 -
7:30pm EACH NIGHT.

38 consecutive years and was titled
a leading dividend stock by Barron's.
The current indicated dividend is 3.8
percent.
Abbott engages in the discovery,
development, manufacture, and sale
of health care products worldwide.
It operates in four segments: Phar-
maceutical Products, Diagnostic
Products, Nutritional Products, and
Vascular Products. It employs nearly
90,000 people and markets products
in over 130 countries. Unfortunately,
recent earnings have been a bit less
than outstanding and the capital ap-
preciation of its shares has been neg-
ative for a while. However, I believe
that is going to change as the com-
pany heads into its 2011 fiscal year.
For its third quarter ended Sep-
tember 30, the company posted earn-
ings of $891 million, or 57 cents per
share, down from $1.48 billion, or
95 cents per share, a year prior. Ex-
cluding one-time charges related to
acquisitions, the discontinuation of
a product and an unfortunate product
recall, Abbott earned $1.05 per share
for the quarter.
The company has made three major
acquisitions this year, including Pira-
mal Healthcare Solutions, one of the
largest generic pharmaceutical sup-
pliers in India. As a result, worldwide
pharmaceutical revenue increased 22
percent.
Revenues increased 12 percent
to $8.68 billion from $7.76 billion,
as sales of the rheumatoid arthritis
and immune disorder drug Humira
climbed 13 percent to $1.68 billion.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


The citizens of our area have a
chance to add another good cook-
book to their collection, thanks to the
Gilchrist County Woman's Club. The
ladies have just released their cook-
book Recipes and Memories. The
club has produced several cookbooks
through their long history, and their
latest release has many wonderful
recipes by their members and a few
friends..
The book is packed with recipes;
but I have to tell you it is the cooks of
yesterday that will be sending me out
to buy additional books.
As far as I am concerned the book
is worth the $20 price (or 2 for $30)
for one single recipe. I have wished
for this pickle recipe since the first
time John and I opened a quart of the
late Ruth Akins' Dill Pickles. Ruth
put a grape leaf in the bottom of each
jar, and her husband Stanley would
always grow dill for Ruth. Through
the years we have eaten a lot of dills,
.but Ruth's were the best.
Through the years, I have had
the opportunity to taste the follow-
ing recipes and they are some of the
best. If you acquire this cookbook,
be sure and try Mae Hendrix's Choc-
olate Fudge, Odessa Webb's Pecan
Pie, Nina Mae Harrison's Whole Fig
Preserves, and Evelyn Grandoff's
Chicken and Yellow Rice.
Another special recipe that I re-
member enjoying years ago was Nina
Mae Harrison's Marinated Shrimp.
Miss Nina Mae is D. Ray Harrison's
mother, and I believe the family
served these shrimp at Renee's wed-
ding which was held more years ago
than Renee or I care to count. It's
been years, but I still remember those
shrimp. Speaking of Renee Lassiter,
she also has a few recipes in the new
cookbook; and trust me she is a great
cook..
I thumbed through the book, well,


courses and participants may choose
the courses) they wish to attend.
The second workshop., of the se-
ries, Winter Orchard Management,
will provide the participants with a
hands-on approach to pruning stone
fruit and muscadine grapes, cold
protection, pest control, and market
research and strategies. The featured
crop in this second part of the series
will be cold hardy citrus.
Linda Landrum, Regional Special-
ized Agent at the North Florida REC
- Suwannee Valley states, "With the
growing interest in locally grown
food, area farmers can improve farm
cash flow, particularly during the
summer months when other crops are
scarce, by planting a small mixed or-
chard for direct markets sales."
The registration fee is $180 for


actually I read it from cover to cover
and bookmarked many recipes that
I would like to try. The first will
probably be Donna Hayes' mother
May Hofer's recipe for Homemade
Egg Noodles. Allie and Gus are big
pasta eaters so I think they will love
a bowl of chicken and noodles. I'm
also excited about the opportunity to
try Ruth Akins' Cheeseburger Soup.
I love that the club included so
many of our great cooks who are no
longer with us. I have sweet, sweet
memories of some of these special
ladies.
The Woman's Club cookbooks can
be picked up from Patty Leggett at
Hair Performance in Trenton and at
the county courthouse from Dale An-
derson or Connie Sanchez. If you
are in Bell, Donna Hayes has them at
Gilchrist Building Supply.
This week I'm featuring a won-
derfully simple Ginger Snap cookie
recipe by Debbie Wright from the
cookbook.



2/3 cups vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons molasses
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground-cinnamon
-Mix all ingredients together in a
bowl with a spoon. Roll dough into
one inch balls. Place on ungreased
cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees
for 8 to 10 minutes. The secret to
this recipe is to not overbake these
cookies. If they are baked until just
done, they will have a wonderful soft
chewy strip in the center. Note: Deb-
bie uses Grandma's Molasses (unsul-
phured).

This fee includes lunch, refresh-

Jleart lMatters
By Angie Land


Submitted
Isn't it funny to watch two kids have
an argument and then be "forced" to
S make up. The "I'm sorry" through
gritted teeth and a stiff back is a lit-
tle less than sincere. But as adults,
haven't we all apologized to some-
one, but didn't really mean it...or de-
termined to be "nice" to a person that
we really can't stand? Surely we can
all admit to acting outwardly in ways
that are contrary to what is going on
in our hearts. In these cases, the way
we "act" is just that...an act. Even
more interesting is how proud we are
of this behavior...have you ever said
something like this, "I really wanted
to tell her off, but I held my tongue";
or "I apologized to him even though
I don't think I was in the wrong." It
really is amazing that we brag about
being deceptive! Actually the Bible
has another word for it...in Matthew
S15:7-8, Jesus called the Pharisees
"hypocrites" for honoring Him with
their lips, while their hearts were far
away.
Appropriately, the root word of the
original Greek for "hypocrite" was
descriptive of persons in a play who
act a part or pretend to be what they
are not. A close look at the life of
Jesus reveals that He was very criti-
cal of this trait. While sinners who
acknowledged their condition were
treated with grace and forgiveness,
-hypocrisy was consistently met with
stem warnings of judgment. (See
Matthew 15:7-9 & Luke 11:37-54)
So what are we to do when we find
inconsistency between our heart and
actions? Obviously the Bible is not
'implying that we go around doing
whatever we feel like or telling off
anyone we dislike or find annoying.


In Matthew 12:33, the Bible gives
this perspective: "Make a tree good
and its fruit will be good, or make a
tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for
a tree is recognized by its fruit." The
problem with leaving a bad tree to
produce bad fruit is that it will con-
tinue to do so...bringing forth noth-
ing good!
In order to make a tree good, you
wouldn't just hang healthy fruit on its
branches and declare it a good tree...
that would be ludicrous! Likewise,
when we recognize those thoughts
and feelings that would produce bad
fruit, instead of just correcting our
outward behavior, it is our respon-
sibility to bring our hearts to God in
repentance...He alone can change
the condition of the heart. Once our
hearts are "made good," we can act
out of the overflow of that goodness
and produce honest good fruit...be-
cause every heart matters!!
Blessings, Angie

Medicare Advantage

enrollment options are

changing


Submitted
Starting in 2011, Medicare will
provide an Annual Disenrollment Pe-
riod from January 1 to February 14 to
allow beneficiaries who have a Medi-
care Advantage Plan to make chang-
es. These beneficiaries may choose to
switch back to Original Medicare or
switch back to Original Medicare and
join a Prescription Drug Plan. Choos-
ing a new health care or prescription
drug plan requires careful consider-
ation of coverage and cost, and per-
haps some assistance in understand-
ing the benefits. Free help is available
through the SHINE (Serving Health
Insurance Needs of Elders) program
in Dixie County at the Cross City
Library, the 4th Wednesday of each
month from 2 4 pm and in Gilchrist
County at the Trenton Library on the
4th Wednesday of each month from
10 am til noon.
SHINE is a free, unbiased infor-
mation and counseling assistance
program provided locally through
ELDER OPTIONS. The SHINE pro-
gram can help beneficiaries compare
plans and understand their options.


For example, it is important for ben-
eficiaries to understand that this en-
rollment period cannot be used to
switch from one Medicare Advantage
Plan to another. Beneficiaries are al-
lowed only one change during this
enrollment period, so it is especially
important that beneficiaries review
their options carefully.
For help understanding the Annual
Disenrollment Period or to set up an
appointment with a trained SHINE
counselor to compare plans, call the
Elder Helpline toll-free at 1-800-96-
ELDER (1-800-963-5337).
Additionally, Medicare benefi-
ciaries with limited annual income
($16,248 for an individual or $21,855
for a couple) may apply for the Ex-
tra Help program and receive assis-
tance. with the cost of prescription
drug plan premiums, deductibles and
co-payments. Medicare beneficiaries
who believe they may benefit from
this program and would like to apply
to save money on out-of-pocket pre-
scription drug plan costs are urged to
contact a SHINE counselor at 1-800-
96-ELDER (1-800-963-5337).

eight schools competing in the first
elimination round. Bell Varsity HI-Q
started the morning with a record of
4-3, while Bell JV HI-Q started with
a record of 3-4. Other teams in atten-
dance were Trenton, Williston, Bron-
son, Union, Bradford, Chiefland, and
Dixie. Each team got the opportunity
to compete at least once. If they won
their round they would go to the next
elimination round. The final round
would determine the winner of the
District and then that team would
travel to the Regional HI-Q Competi-
tion in January.
From the first toss up question to
the final bonus question it was clear
to see that Bell Varsity HI-Q was the
team to beat. As each round started
there was a toss up question. The
teams were given five seconds to
buzz in with their answer. If the an-
swer given was correct they then got
a bonus question. Once the bonus
question was asked the team had the
opportunity to discuss their answer,
but they had to answer at the end of
fifteen seconds. With the clock tick-

man a widower. If filing for the
first time, please present a Death
Certificate or other proof of your
widow/widower status.


DISABLED VETERAN'S
EXEMPTION
Any ex-service member who is a
permanent resident of Florida and
is disabled at least 10% in war or
by service-connected misfortune
is entitled to a $5,000 exemption.
If filing for the first time, please
present a certificate from the
United States Government. Under
certain circumstances the benefit
of this exemption can carry over
to the veteran's spouse in the
event of the veteran's death.

Every Florida resident who is totally and permanently disabled
qualifies for the $500 exemption. If filing for the first time,
present at least one of the following as proof of your disability:

Office


AHomestead Exemption Granted
For 2010
Will Automatically Be Renewed
For 2011

It is no longer necessary to sign and
return a renewal card for
Homestead Exemption.

If filing for the first time,
you must come
to the Property Appraiser's Office.


ADDITIONAL HOMESTEAD
EXEMPTION FOR
PERSONS 65 AND OLDER
For 2011, Gilchrist County residents 65 and
older who meet an income limitation may be
eligible for an additional $25,000
homestead exemption on property which
they have the legal and equitable title to and
maintain thereon their permanent
residence. For 2010, the income limitation
was $25,780. In order to be considered, a
sworn statement of adjusted gross income
of household must be filed with the property
appraiser's office during the filing period of
January 1 March 1.


PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT FOR
VETERANS AGE 65 AND OLDER WITH COMBAT RELATED
S DISABILITY
Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall
receive a discount from the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the
veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related, the veteran was a resident
of this state at the time of entering the military service of the United States, and the veteran
was honorably discharged upon separation from military service. The discount shall be in
a percentage equal to the percentage of the veteran's permanent, service-connected
disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for
the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the county property
appraiser, by March 1, proof of residency at the time of entering military service, an
official letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating the percentage
of the veteran's service-connected disability and such evidence that reasonably identifies
the disability as combat related, and a copy of the veteran's honorable discharge.


TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY
Tangible Personal Property returns must be filed no
later than April 1st. Failure to file a return will result in
a penalty and an assessment will be made as
provided by Florida Law. Tangible Personal Property
includes property such as business furniture and
fixtures, machinery and equipment, household goods,
and personal effects. (Florida residents are exempt
from the tax on household goods and personal effects
in their homestead.) The deadline for charitable and
qualified non-profit organizations eligible as such
exemption is March 1st. All others must file by April
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.


AGRICULTURAL
(GREENBELT)
FILINGS
All owners or lessees of agricultural
lands who desire agricultural
classifications for tax purposes on
their property must file an agricultural
application with the Appraiser
between January 1 and March 1.

ing and stress levels climbing it was
very hard to think at times and have
the correct answer. There were any-
where from two to three judges per
match as well as a moderator who
read the questions. A normal toss up
question could be as easy as "Mites
are to ectoparasites as hookworms
are to. .." correct answer is "endo-
parasites." There are other easy toss
up questions like "Subtract (6-4i)
from (-11+4i) with the correct answer
being "-17+8i." The bonus questions
only got harder. For example "Named
for an archipelago, which of the
world's great planes is between the
Pacific plate and the Eurasian plate?"
Answer .. ."Philippine Plate." Yes,
these questions were indeed hard.
Throughout the day Bell Varsity
was on the ball. The Varsity team
was lead by Bobby Brito, with fellow
competitors Larana Wingate, Lucas
Wilson, Quentin Hudson, Austin
Myer, Elli Carranza, Micah Popp and
Michaleah Woodward. They took on
an undefeated team and came out the
victor. By the end of the day Bell Var-
sity had not only answered the major-
ity of the questions but walked away
with the trophy.
Sadly the Bell JV HI-Q team lost
during the first elimination round,
however, they stayed rooted to their
spot as they watched their more sea-
soned mentors take the game.
Our next competition will be on
January 25, 2011 at the NFHQ Con-
ference tournament in Lake Butler
where they will again have an all day
competition. The schools in atten-
dance that day will be Bradford Co.
High School, Bell High School, Co-
lumbia Co. High School, Nease High
School, Vanguard High School, and
Belleview High School. Good Luck
to all the teams, but most especially
to the Bell High School Varsity HI-Q
Team.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


These Egyptian wall hangings go with a quilt that will be on dis-
play at the State Fair in Tampa.


Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, January 20, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. Our days
are really busy now. Some of our
northern ladies are back and it's so
good to have them with us.
It seems like we're getting in a
lot of clothes now. My friend who
lived in Tampa passed away and her
husband wanted us to have what
she left. There are suits, bathrobes,
gowns, socks, blouses and so much
more. We are going to have a lot


of her craft goodies as she made
many' crafts, so if you can, come
out and see what we have. We will
be bringing more up when we go to
Tampa again.
We have taken everything to the
fair, so next week we go to help
with the judging.
Thursday lunch was so good with
soup, turkey and rice, beans, egg
salad, bean casserole,.blueberry pie,
pumpkin bars and so much more.

Year June Hutto, who is a 5th grade
teacher at BES and mother of four.
According to principal Sherry Lind-
sey, Hutto lives the saying "No ex-
cuses; every child can learn." Trenton
Elementary School was represented
by Teacher of the Year Lynsey Grant.
Grant is a fourth grade teacher at
TES, and according to assistant prin-
cipal Michelle Smith she is the first
in line to volunteer when something
needs to be done at the school. Di-
ana Manders represented Trenton

'A Night at the Races' celebrated


Continued from page 1
in Gilchrist County in the 1920s,
working as farmers initially. It wasn't
long before the family got into the
custom seed combine business and
even opened a meat market where
Hitchcock's Foodway is today. The
Wilson family has exemplified an
entrepreneurial spirit over the years
as members have served in various
capacities, from the Gilchrist County
School Board to the Farm Bureau
Board of Directors. The Wilsons
have built subdivisions, worked as
contractors building houses in the
county and opened a mobile home
dealership. Several members of the
family are also noted for their fishing
abilities and fondness for hunting.
J.B Wilson had seven children,
three of whom still live in Gilchrist
County, along with members of their
own families.
In presenting the Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award, Rexroat recalled when
he and his wife Gwen first moved to
Gilchrist County 39 years ago.
"I was only 24 years old," Rexroat
said. "The Wilsons were a well-re-
spected family here and they went
out of their way to help us feel wel-
come in this community."
Rexroat said that if he could use
only one word to describe the family
it would be, "kind."
The Trenton Rotary Club was
awarded Civic Organization of the
Year for its outstanding support of
the community. Credited as having
originally brought Trenton Medical
Center to Trenton in the 1970s, the
Trenton Rotary Club members are
humanitarians who strive to live their
motto, "Service Above Self."
Clif Bradley and Terrie Deen
walked on stage to accept the 2011
Business of the Year Award for Burg-
er Spot. The drive-thru restaurants in
Trenton and Bell strive to serve ham-
burgers, fries and shakes, as well as a
menu of other tasty foods at reason-
able prices to their customers. Burger
Spot employs 25 local residents,
including 10 high school or college
students.
While presenting the award, Todd
Bryant said that Burger Spot truly
epitomizes an American entrepre-
neur.


Nora Adkins, Helen Shipley and Jan Randolph enjoyed the Gilchrist
County Chamber of Commerce banquet last week.


Jim Troke, along with Michael McElroy, were emcees at the Chamber


banquet.
"Thank you to everyone who sup-
ports Burger Spot," Bradley said
to the audience of almost 200 local


business professionals who attended
the annual banquet, which boasted a
horse race theme this year.
