The Coca-Cola water bottling facility is located on County Road 340.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Seventy-one employees of the
Coca-Cola water bottling plant will
lose their jobs on March 31 when the
facility closes.
In late October, the Gilchrist
County Journal first reported that the
plant, which is located on Country
Road 340, was in danger of closing.
According to Charlie Sutlive,
spokesman for Coca-Cola Refresh-
ments, the company has been seeking
a buyer for the High Springs plant,
and had been in discussions with a
prospective buyer, but a purchase
agreement was not reached.
The prospective buyer that Coca-
Cola officials had been in discussions
with has since decided not to pursue
purchasing the facility.
"As a result, we are following
through with what we communicated
to our associates last October, and we
plan to issue severance packages to
all remaining impacted employees
at the facility on March 31," Sutlive
said.
At one time, the Coca-Cola water
bottling facility was the largest pub-
lic employer and taxpayer in Gilchrist
County. Initially, the plant opened in
1999 under the name Ginnie Springs
Water Bottling.
According to Donna Cicolia,
government relations director for
Coca-Cola, the plant had been losing
ground in the retail bottling industry
for some time, which led to the com-


pany deciding that it must be sold or
closed.
When news broke in October,
Trina Coggins, plant manager at the
High Springs facility, said that the
plant was running on one-third the
number of employees it once had. At
that time, Coggins said that the plant
was running only one eight-hour shift
and closing nights and weekends.
The plant manager said the facility
only uses an estimated 25 percent of
its permitted 1.2 million gallons of
water daily through its water with-
drawal permit issued by the Siiwan-
nee River Water Management Dis-
trict.
As a spokesman for Coca-Cola,
Sutlive wanted to send a clear mes-
sage to plant employees in lieu of the
closing, "In a time of change, we are
committed to treating everyone fairly
and with respect. In addition to sever-
ance, employees will be eligible for
outplacement support. Employees
can also apply for positions at other
Coca-Cola Refreshment facilities."
The loss of jobs at the water bot-
tling plant will drastically affect the
community, and the loss in tax rev-
enue will also pose a hit to Gilchrist
County.
According to records obtained
from the Gilchrist County Property
Appraiser's Office, the water bottling
plant paid around $700,000 in real
and personal property taxes in last
year.

John Davis knew the antique stroll-
er he picked up at a yard sale near
Fort. White two years ago was spe-
cial, but he didn't know just how spe-
cial until an expert looked at it Friday
night during Trenton's Antique Road
Show.
Made in the mid-1800's, the Eng-
lish stroller cost the High Springs man
$200, and is now valued at $1200.
"I have wondered about it for a
while now," Davis said. "We keep it
in the closet at my house because we
have a little one who would want to
play on it."
Davis was one of a large crowd
who braved the chilly temperatures
to spend Friday evening at the Tren-
ton Depot in hopes of having dishes,
jewelry, furniture, art and books ap-
praised by one of four antique ex-
perts.

Trenton


Police


Chief


narrows
By Cindy Jo Ayers
Thirty-two applications have been
turned in for the position of Tren-
ton police chief, according to Taylor
Brown, city manager.
Brown told city commissioners
during the Tuesday, March 8 meeting,
that of the 32 he had narrowed the
applications down to what he feels
are the top 16 candidates. Brown said
25 percent of the applicants are from
Gilchrist County, 25 percent are from
surrounding counties, 30 percent are
from Florida, and 20 percent of the
applicants are from out of state.
"We have gotten some really quali-
fied applicants," Brown said. "I think
we can consider ourselves lucky."
After some discussion on how to.
proceed toward a selection, it was
determined that the commissioners
would read each of the 16 applications
to select the ones they would most
like to interview in person. Commis-
sioner Tim Kinsey told the commis-
sion that he would like to look at all
the applications. Kinsey said that he
has lived in Gilchrist County all his
life and he feels that he might know
if applicants from the area would be
satisfactory in the position or not.
At this time, the commissioners
plan to pick their top five candidates
for the job at the March 22 meet-
ing. Each commissioner and the city
manager will select their top five
applicants and each applicant who
receives three or more votes will be
called in for an interview by the full
board and city manager. This is the
same process that the commission
used to hire their current city manag-
er. Through this selection process the
commissioners are hoping to narrow
the list down to five candidates.
These future, in-person interviews
will be held at an open meeting that
the citizens may attend.


Dixie County native charged


with murdering his ex-girlfriend


By Carrie A. Mizell
Just six months after marrying a
Trenton woman, a 22-year-old Di-
xie County native has been arrested
and charged with murdering his 18-
year-old ex-girlfriend.
Torrey A. Pendarvis, 22, was
charged Friday morning in the
shooting death of Jenny Michelle
Jackson, 18, of Old Town.
Pendarvis and Jackson both grew
up in Dixie'County. Pendarvis
graduated from Dixie County High
School in 2007, and most recently
married in Gilchrist County on Oc-
tober 9, 2010. Jackson, his former
girlfriend, graduated from Dixie
County High School in 2010.
The Dixie County Sheriff's Of-
fice received a 911 call at 1:09 a.m.
on Friday from Torrey Pendarvis'
father who requested a deputy come
to the weight scales in Old Town.
According to the caller, his son had
come to his place of work and said
that he had been in an accidental
shooting incident while hunting ear-
lier in the evening.
According to Major Scott Harden
of the Dixie County Sheriff's Of-
fice, Pendarvis agreed to accom-
pany the deputy, who arrived at the
weigh station, to the location where
the incident occurred.
During this time, co-workers of
the victim, Jenny Jackson, called
911 and said that she had taken her
break earlier in the evening and had
not returned to work. This was re-


Torrey Pendarvis


portedly out of character for Jackson
and they asked deputies to look for
her in case she had some difficulty.
In the meantime, Pendarvis made
several statements to the deputy about
the incident not actually involving a
hunting accident, and that Jackson's
body was located in a wooded area in
Taylor County, near Steinhatchee.
The Dixie County deputy noti-
fied his patrol supervisor who then
requested the assistance of Taylor
County Sheriff's Office and investi-
gators with the Dixie' County Sher-
iff's Office.
After arriving in the area where
the victim was disposed of in Taylor
County, Sheriff's officials searched
the wooded area along the west side


of the roadway where they discov-
ered the body of Jenny Jackson.
Dixie County Sheriff Dewey
Hatcher and Taylor County Sheriff
L.E. Williams then met with Assis-
tant State Attorney Dave Phelps and
requested that the Florida Depart-
ment of Law. Enforcement Crime
Lab and assisting agents arrive on
scene.
The subsequent investigation at
the scene confirmed that Jackson
had been the victim of a homicide.
Pendarvis was transported to the
Taylor County Jail in Perry for fur-
ther interviews, while the investiga-
tion continued at the scene in Tay-
.lor County.
During the course of the inves-
tigation, Major Harden said that
investigators learned that two sepa-
rate vehicles belonging to Pendarvis
and Jackson were located in Dixie
County. Both vehicles were secured
and they, along with another scene
in Dixie County, were searched dur-
ing the day Friday where investiga-
tors recovered other relevant items
of evidence in the case.
Late Friday afternoon, Pendarvis
was officially arrested and booked
into the Taylor County Jail. As of
Monday afternoon, Pendarvis was
being charged with the murder of
Jenny Jackson and tampering with
evidence in regards to his activities
after the homicide.
Pendarvis is being held on no
bond.

DOC says,

Inmates must

stop smoking

in the next 6

months
Submitted
To reduce healthcare costs and to
make our prisons safer, Florida De-
partment of Correction facilities will
be tobacco-free in six months. Smok-
ing bans have long been in place in
all of Floirida's public buildings and
offices, over half of the state prisons
in the US already have similar bans,
and since 2004 all of the prisons in the
Federal Prison system have banned
smoking on prison grounds.
"Inmate smoking and second-hand
smoking is costing millions in health-
care costs each year," said Florida
Department of Corrections Secretary
Edwin Buss. "Eliminating smoking
is a win for taxpayers, but it's also a
win for employees and inmates, mak-
ing our facilities healthier places to
work and live in, and making them a
little safer too."
In the past year, inmates hospital-
ized for tobacco-related illnesses
have cost Florida taxpayers nearly
nine million dollars. Snuffing out
cigarettes will also result in cleaned
prisons and by removing lighters, re-
duce the chance of arson.
The Department is giving 180
days notice to inmates and'will of-
fer smoking cessation assistance to
inmates requesting help. Designated
smoking areas will be set up for em-
ployees outside the prison fence.

Positive economic impacts just
don't seem to be coming our way. On
Monday, March 14, 2011, the news
of the closing of the CCDA Water
Bottling Plant on CR 340 became of-
ficial as the interested parties consid-
ering the purchase and operation of
the facility have backed away from
the sale.
I was disappointed when I talked
with Charlie Sutlive of Coca-Cola
Refreshments in their Atlanta office.
He explained that the closing of the
High Springs water bottling plant
would occur at the end of March.
There are a handful of people that
live in the immediate area of the bot-
tling plant that will be glad to see this
production facility close. These are
people that are not employed with
the once booming production facility
and don't realize just how devastat-
ing this economic impact will be on
this county.
The loss of these jobs for the es-
timated 71 -employees remaining at
the facility will be extremely tough


in these economic times.
This commercial facility at one
time was Gilchrist County's larg-
est production staffed employer and
largest commercial taxpayer.
Many people still think that the
500,000 to 750,000 gallons of wa-
ter this facility used when it was at
its peak production was a major im-
pact to our ground water system. On
a much larger scale, this was only a
drip from the Floridan Aquifer fau-
cet when you compare the amount
of gallons that are being drawn from
the aquifer in northwest Florida to
the more densely populated areas in
northeast Florida and other parts of
the St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
As the demand for more and more
water continues to increase with the
ever-increasing population, we can
all expect the limitations to come re-
garding our water resources. It is not
a question of if, but when it will be-
gin and how long the droughts will
last.


L L e t o th Ei


Ocean Pond
Mudd Bogg
Dear Editor,
My name is Norman Eastman. A
lot of folks in and around Dixie Coun-
ty have gotten to know me over the
past few years. In case you haven't,
I promote the events at Ocean Pond
Mudd Bogg. We'd like to continue
having these events every month,
but we have a problem. Competing
events occur in Perry, Ocala and a
lot of other places that attract partici-
pants by offering overnight camping.
Since that convenience is no longer
available at Ocean Pond, a lot of
people who would otherwise turn out
for our events go somewhere else in-
stead. We're here for the local folks
first and foremost, but local participa-
tion produces barely enough revenue
to keep the gates open on a good day,
and otherwise we lose money.'
When we opened at Ocean Pond
several years ago, there were prob-
lems which had to be addressed out
of respect for people who live nearby,
as well as for the fact that we want a
wholesome atmosphere where fami-
lies can come out for a day of good
entertainment. The gates now close
at six p.m. and there is no alcohol or


drugs allowed at any time. Safety
measures for participants and by-
standers are enforced.
Ocean Pond Mudd Bogg offers
an opportunity for young people to
build and show off their mud buggies
in competitive events and stay out
of trouble. These events also attract
people from other areas who spend
money with local businesses. We
also employ several local people
in connection with these events. In
other words, Ocean Pond Mudd Bogg
is a win-win proposition for Dixie
County, and we'd like to be able to
keep it going on a regular basis.
On Thursday, March 17, the Di-
xie County Commission meets at the
Courthouse in Cross City and will
consider an application I've made to
permit overnight camping at Ocean
Pond for the benefit of those who
participate in these events. I know
there will be people on hand who

What If There Is No Water?
(Kent Heaton)


"In the beginning, God created the heavens and the
earth" (Genesis 1:1). It is unfathomable to imagine the
power found in Genesis 1:1. How can we measure the
magnitude of the creation of the world by the word of
God? He spoke and the world came into existence. "God
said, 'Let there be light,' and there was light" (Genesis
1:3). He divided the portions of the earth, formed the
planets and established their order in the universe and
caused the land to produce vegetation and animals by the
power of His word.
The great wonder of God's power is found in the story
of the deliverance of Israel from Egypt. Sending the
plagues upon Pharaoh and the wicked nation of Egypt
was a sign of the immense power of God that concluded
with the death of the firstborn among the people of Egypt
(Deuteronomy 6:22). When Job contended with Jehovah
the reply out of the whirlwind came with the might and
force of the omnipotent presence of the Creator. "Where
were you when I laid the foundations of the earth? Tell
Me, if you have understanding. Who determined its
measurements? Surely you know! Or who stretched the
line upon it? To what were itsfoundationsfastened? Or
who laid its cornerstone, When the morning stars sang
together, And all the sons of God shouted for joy?" (Job
38:4-7).
How can one compare the work of God in His divine
supremacy over man? He destroyed the whole earth (save
eight souls) by a flood in Genesis 6. The vengeance of
the Lord destroyed the cities of the plain including
Sodom and Gomorrah in Genesis 19. Nations rose and
fell under the command of God (Zephaniah 3:8) and
kings were displaced by the will of God. The miracles of
Jesus lay testimony to His power over every dominion


and power known to man and the greatest of miracles
was His birth. We stand in fearfulness of how great our
God is.
On the road to Gaza, the Holy Spirit instructs the
evangelist Philip to find a man traveling back to his
home in Ethiopia. Luke tells us the area Philip would
find his prospect was a "desert" (Acts 8:26). Joining the
man of Ethiopia, Philip began at Isaiah 53 and
"preached Jesus to him. Now as they went down the
road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said,
'See, here is water. What hinders me from being
baptized?'" (Acts 8:35-36). Imagine that a desolate
place where two men found water to be baptized.
The critics of water baptism would suggest that
baptism cannot be necessary for salvation because "what
if there is no water to baptize the person?" This kind of
theology is suggesting that God is omnipotent in
everything but providential care of those who want to
obey His will. The Lord can create the world and destroy
the world but helping two men find water to be baptized
is out of His power. To deny the necessity of baptism is
to deny the will of God (Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-6;
Galatians 3:26-27; 1 Peter 3:21). To deny the necessity
of baptism because someone somewhere in the world
will not find sufficient water to be baptized is to treat the
Creator with great contempt.
Detractors of water baptism are much like Naaman (2
Kings 5) who "thought" he had a better way than the
will of the Lord. Until he humbled himself he remained a
leper. Until men humble themselves and obey Jesus
Christ in baptism they remain in their sin. You provide
the faith and God will provide the water.

The strongest earthquake to ever
strike Japan in recorded history hit
this month. Watching the news to-
day, in one city alone some 9.500
people are missing. The death toll
is expected to rise above ten thou-
sand.
How about Gilchrist County?
How about Florida? How about
you? I think just about anywhere
you live on earth is not immune from
some kind of disaster. The question
is when, and just how devastating
it will be. We might be hit with a
tornado, hurricane, flood, forest
fire, epidemic, or an environmental
disaster like the Gulf oil spill-yes,
even an earthquake is possible.
What will be the effects on
Gilchrist County? Important factors
are the type of disaster, the sever-
ity, and the length of time that ser-
vices are disrupted. Vital services
we may have to do without include
electric power; water, communica-
tion, food, transportation, access
to banking, the internet. We could
lose services for a day, a week, a
month, or a year. Some areas have
taken years to recover. Katrina took
down New Orleans for years. The
Russian nuclear meltdown and the
Three Mile Island nuclear disaster
may have made those areas perma-
nently unsafe.
When I'm not teaching psycholo-
gy part time at Florida Gateway Col-
lege, I help out as a volunteer with
the Gilchrist County Emergency
Operations Center, as the Gilchrist
County Community Emergency Re-
sponse Team (CERT) Coordinator.
We're a group of volunteers who
are trained and ready to help out in
an emergency disaster or crisis. If
a major disaster hits the area, there
will be too few police, firemen,
and paramedics to deal with the re-
sulting chaos. Even if there were
enough, roads and bridges may not
be in operation.
The psychological effects of a
disaster can be devastating too.
People may react with panic, shock,
and frustration leading to anger and
aggression, and feelings of despera-
tion. There will probably be confu-
sion, worry, and maybe depression
and feelings of hopelessness. What
advice do professionals in emergen-
cy management advise in the after-


and cancer education, and inspires
the public to become involved in the
American Cancer Society's advocacy
efforts.
CFEC is looking for both golfers
and potential sponsors for the event.
To find out how you or your business
can get involved, call Tony Wasson
or Member Services at 1-800-227-
1302. All proceeds from this event
will go to the American Cancer Soci-
ety Relay for Life. Together, we can
help make a difference in the fight
against cancer.

math of a major disaster?
First of all. try to remain calm.
Don't react impulsively. Think
before you take any action. Com-
municate with your family or those
you're with. Assess your situation,
and make plans to take care to pro-
vide for your own safety, as well as
others you share responsibility with.
List what you will need to provide
for your needs for safety, shelter,
water, and food. Make plans to
meet those needs. Conserve your
resources. Be careful and avoid
doing things that may risk injury.
Consider the nature and extent of
the disaster, and the length of time
you may need to be self-sufficient
until services are restored. Com-
municate with those close to you,
and watch for signs of emotional
distress like shock, panic, or hope-
lessness. Think positively and reas-
sure others.
Of course, the best time to de-
velop a disaster and survival plan is
now, before a disaster strikes. Sit
down with those closest to you and
thoroughly discuss and write down
plans to answer questions like these:
Which services have we lost? How
long can we expect to be without
services? What supplies will I need
to meet our needs? Do we need to
relocate, or remain where we are?
How can I provide for our needs of
safety, shelter, water and food, med-
icine, communication? You'll want
to make a list of supplies and equip-
ment to get you through the hard
times. Your list will depend on your
circumstances. Some example cat-
egories on your list might be shel-
ter, safety equipment, water, food,
and communication devices. Some
examples might be a tent, blankets,
extra clothes, sleeping bags, flash-
light, lighter, gloves, boots, plastic
jugs of water, water purification
tablets, trail mix and canned food,
and any prescription or over-the-
counter medications, cell phone,
radio, whistle. '
Probably your best resource for
successfully managing a disaster
and eventually returning to nor-
malcy is psychology. Approach the
situation with a positive attitude,
confidence, thorough preparation
and planning, and calm clear think-
ing. Remember tough times don't
last; but tough people do.

COOKING AND

We have big plans for our garden
this summer. If grocery, prices keep
going up, I guess we will be really
glad we planted a garden. Anyway,
on Monday evening John and I re-
ceived a special delivery of a box full
of garden helpers. It was, in fact, a
hive of bees; no kidding, bees are a
gardener's friend. Several years ago
a nearby field was planted in water-
melons, and the farmer rented several
hives-of bees to pollinate the melons.
Lucky for us, bees don't know which
field they should be working in so
some of them flew over our way and
pollinated our garden. I have to say
that was the best, most productive
garden we have ever grown.
I was pleased to hear that a young
man who is a family friend has gone
into the beekeeping business.
It was a joy to hear how excited he
is about his bees and beekeeping.
Visiting with this young beekeeper
made me remember how much
my own father once enjoyed his
beekeeping hobby. Back then our
family really enjoyed having an
endless supply of honey, and still
today if the subject of honey comes
up we usually end up talking about
Papa back in the day when he kept
bees. We always have several kinds
of honey in the pantry because it's
just supposed to be there. Honey is as
much a part of our staple groceries as
rice or flour.
Our children grew up eating bis-
cuits smothered in honey for dessert.
Even today after a meal with us, they
both will pull out-a bottle of honey
and pour it over a biscuit.
A friend -sent me some interesting
information about honey, cinnamon
and health. Now I'm not recommend-
ing that anyone try the following, but
you have to admit it is interesting
reading. The info claims that honey
is the only food.on earth that will not
spoil or rbt. Honey will begin to crys-

CARRYING' ON
tallize if you leave it on the shelf too
long. When this happens, loosen the
lid, and set the honey container in a
pan of hot water and in just a little
while the honey will be liquid again.
The info stated that honey and cin-
namon mixed together will help re-
duce cholesterol, colds, reduce the
pain of arthritis and work wonders on
many other health problems.
I have no idea if any of this is true
or not, but I have made hot tea, added
a tablespoon of honey and a teaspoon
of lemon juice; and my sore throat,
that was so ticklish I could not sleep,
went away. I have used the honey-
lemon-tea remedy several times, and
it works each and every time.
Anyway, I'm bound and deter-
mined to use more honey and less
sugar in the future just in case there
is some truth to any of the medical
benefits of honey.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

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

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
.A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances.
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business 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 form 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 1 we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of4usiness with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What ifl 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.

S25,000 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.

Tangible Personal Property please contact:

(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208

Q. What ifI 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 if receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or
not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must
be filed on all assets by April I.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
lile a tangible personal property tax return?
SA. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature,
you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture. appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a time return is April 1. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is
required or unreported property. AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

What images come to mind at the
thought of discipline? Perhaps you
have memories of "meetings" with
your Dad behind the woodshed, or
strict teachers doling out smacks on
the hand with a ruler, or seemingly
endless weekends with no car keys.
Maybe as adults we have faced dis-
cipline at work or just with our own
conscience. No doubt our memories
are all different...but I wonder if we
have something in common. When
I recall episodes of discipline, some
from my childhood, and some I have
experienced as an adult, I still feel a
sense of humility and even embar-
rassment. I am convinced this is be-
cause even though I hated the disci-
pline at the time, there was no doubt
that I deserved it. If this rings a bell
with you, I have good news!
In Hebrews 12:5-7, The Message
Bible has this to say:
"So don't feel sorry for yourselves.
Or have you forgotten how good par-
ents treat children, and that God treats
you as his children? My dear child,
don't shrug off God's discipline, but
don't be crushed by it either. It's the
child he loves that he disciplines; the
child he embraces, he also corrects.
God is educating you; that's why you
must never drop out. He's treating you
as dear children. The trouble you're
in isn't punishment; it's training; the
normal experience of children. Only
irresponsible parents leave children
to fend for themselves."
These verses presuppose that every
child requires discipline, and notice
how clearly we are reminded, it's not
mean and horrible Moms and Dads,
but "good" parents who discipline
their children; those who refuse td un-

CITY OF FANNING SPRINGS

RD WASTEWATER

COLLECTION &

TREATMENT FACILITY

M&A Job 9805-12-1


Notice of a Finding of No Significant Impact
The USDA, Rural Utilities Service has received an application
for financial assistance from the City of Fanning Springs, Florida.
The proposal consists of:
1- Constructing a 100,000 gallon-per-day wastewater
treatment facility. The facility will utilize an activated
sludge process for wastewater treatment. Reuse through slow
rate irrigation is the selected method for effluent disposal.
Aerobic digestion is the selected method for sludge stabiliza-
tion and offsite land application is the selected method for
biosolids disposal.
2- Constructing a wastewater collection system consisting
of approx. 17,000 feet of gravity sewers; 23,000 feet of
sanitary force mains, 12 grinder stations, 4 lift stations; and
other misc. items. The work included will take place along
US 19/98; SR 26; and within the Suwannee River Springs.
residential area located in Fanning Springs, Florida.
As required by the National Environmental Policy Act and
agency regulations, the Rural Utilities Service prepared an
Environmental Assessment of the proposal that assessed the
potential environmental effects of the proposal and the effect the
proposal may have on historic properties. The Environmental
Assessment was published on January 6, 2011 for a 30-day public
comment period. No public comments'were received in-this
period. Division of Historical Resources requested that a cultural
resource survey to be prepared for the project area prior to any
ground disturbing activities.
Upon consideration of the applicant's proposal, federal and state
environmental regulatory and natural resource agencies, Division
of Historical Resources request for a cultural resource survey, and
public input, the agency has determined that the proposal will not
have a significant effect on the human environment and for which
an Environment Impact Statement will not be prepared. The
basis of this determination is that no significant impacts of the
proposal are anticipated.
In order to avoid or minimize any adverse environmental
impacts, the Rural Utilities Service will require the applicant to
incorporate the following mitigation measure into the proposal's
design:
Prior to the preconstruction conference, a cultural resource
survey and unanticipated discovery plan must be submitted to the
Division of Historical Resources and RD for concurrence.
Copies of the Environmental Assessment can be reviewed or
obtained at:
USDA RURAL DEVELOPMENT
2441 NE 3rd Street, Suite 204-1
Ocala, FL 34470
For further information, please contact R. C. Quainton II at (352)

By Angle Land
dertake this responsibility are, in fact,
irresponsible. It is interesting that the
Greek word for chastening is defined
not only as "chastisement" and "in-
struction," but also as "nurture." The
fact is, when we are disciplined, it is
proof that we are loved!
So, not only can we apply this
easily to our task as parents, it also
should influence our perspective on
struggles that we face as adults. "The
trouble you're in isn't punishment;
it's training." Perhaps instead of ask-
ing, "When will this be over?" a bet-
ter question might be: "What am I to
learn from this trouble?"
The payoff from our train-
ing is explained a few verses later in
Hebrews 12:11:
"At the time discipline isn't much
fun. It always feels like it's going
against the grain. Later, of course, it
pays off handsomely, for it's the well-
trained who find themselves mature
in their relationship with God."


I


Did you recognize it? The payoff
that comes only through discipline is
maturity: being well-trained to make
good decisions that will lead to ful-
filling relationships with others, and
with our Father in heaven...because
every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

Trenton FFA competes at contest in Bronson


By John M. Ayers
The Hawthorne Hornets traveled
to Trenton to take on the (6-0) Tigers
Tuesday, March 8th.
Trenton's Justin Crown started on
the mound for the first time this sea-
son. He pitched 5 innings and gave
up 4 hits and 3 runs with 2 strikeouts
and 4 walks. Catcher Caleb Smith
threw out both base runners by the
Hornets attempting to steal second
base. Chance Brooks relieved Crown
and pitched the sixth inning. Brooks
allowed one hit, had one strike out
and gave up no runs.
Brooks and Clif Bryant led the Ti-
gers at the plate. Brooks was 3 for 4
with 2 home runs and 4 RBIs. Bry-
ant was 3 for 3 with a home run and
4 RBIs. The game ended in the sixth
inning with the score 13-3. The Ti-
gers improved to 8-0 on the season.
The Tigers were on the road Friday
evening in Chiefland to face the Indi-
ans in front of a good crowd.
Hunter Williams started on the
mound for the Tigers. In the first
inning with two outs and runners
on second and third, the Indian bat-
ter hit a ground ball down third base


that was ruled fair allowing two runs
to score. Williams pitched into the
third inning before being relieved by
Chance Brooks. Williams allowed 4
runs, 2 of which were unearned, on 4
hits and 4 walks and struck out two
batters. Brooks finished up the game
with only 2 hits but gave up 6 runs
on errors. The Trenton defense com-
mitted six errors allowing 8 unearned
runs.
Trenton's Stephen Smith was the
only multiple Tiger batter as the soph-
omore went 2 for 2 with a double, a
walk, a run, and was hit by a pitch.
Trenton dropped to 8-1 and will
face PK Yonge on the road on March
17.
Dixie County will play the Tigers
in Trenton on March 18. Come out

Springhouse Quilters'
news
Submitted
March has been a very busy month
for the members of Springhouse
Quilters. The March business meet-
ing was held on Tuesday, March 8,
with President Pat Hodges officiat-
ing. There were 40 members in at-
tendance on a very beautiful, spring
day. The building was decorated in
green and white for St. Patrick's Day,
thanks to our hostesses, Pat Castor
and Fran Roberts. Many of the mem-
bers wore their Irish green to observe
the day and were treated to a table
of wonderful breakfast goodies pre-
pared by the hospitality team.
Since March is National Quilt
Month, President Pat emphasized
the historical significance of our
quilting heritage. She recognized
Stephanie Metts who displayed a
1970s quilt stitched and handquilted
by Anna Lupkiewicz. During her
lifetime, Mrs. Lukpkiewicz had
taught Stephanie and many other
enthusiastic quilt makers living in the
Gainesville area, and was lovingly
known as the "Mother of Quilting"
in her home town. This wonderful
quilter was also a great musician as
well as being an outstanding quilter.
Lois Scott presented the monthly


demonstration explaining the differ-
ent kinds of precut fabric strips by
Moda Fabrics. Some of these pre-
cut strips sound like wonderful food
items such as honey buns, dessert
rolls, jelly rolls, and layer cake. They
make quilting very easy since the
precutting has all been done.
I The March 22 workshop will be
taught by Miriam. Otera and will
feature a stained glass butterfly wall
hanging. Miriam showed members a
lovely quilt with blocks of the same
butterfly design.
Tickets for the 2011 raffle quilt are
now on sale and will continue until
the drawing in early December. The
raffle quilt will be on display in local
businesses, and tickets will be avail-
able on site.
Springhouse ended a very busy
week on.Saturday, March 12, by par-
ticipating in the Old Time Quilt and
Craft Festival with many quilts on
display at the depot and a gift shop
near the Gilchrist County Journal. A
special thanks to all who stopped by
the gift shop and the depot display
and gave their support to Spring-
house.
For information contact any Spring-
house member, or call 463-2207.

noon, at Westminster Presbyterian
Church, 1521 N.W. 34th Street in
Gainesville. Refreshments are served
at 9:30 a.m.; the meeting begins at 10
a.m. Guests are welcome.
On Thursday, April 7, Margie En-
gel, quilt artist and author of Boda-

designer and lecturer, Margie found-
ed Edu-Quilters, volunteers who en-
hance children's esteem through quilt-
ing. She wrote Kids Quilt Projects

others introduce quilting to children,
and has received several awards, in-
cluding the Jefferson Award for Pub-
lic Service.
The workshop, Fabric Meets Fus-
ible-or Not!, is suitable for quilters
of all levels. This easy free spirit
class exits the traditional box to em-
brace collage. Begin with a pattern
and vary or abandon it by taking cues
from the fabric. Fusibles are op-

makes this a great first "art" class.

this creation.

_u_- IFamily heirlooms resurface


at Antique Road Show


Continued from page I


Dairy showmanship winners for the junior division were: Shelbi McCall of Dixie FFA in third place, Aaron
Brown of Trenton FFA was second place and Kacee Langford of Trenton FFA won first place.


Dairy showmanship winners for the senior division were: Lori Harrison of Trenton FFA in third place,
Peaches Smith of Bell FFA was second place and Taylor Langford of Trenton FFA won first place.

McCall, Harrison take top dairy honors


By Carrie A. Mizell
With 14,000 milking cows in Gil-
christ County, youth in the tri-county
area have a multitude of dairy cows
to choose from when selecting an an-
imal to show at the Suwannee River
Fair.
Shelbi McCall, of Dixie FFA,
chose well when she picked her grand
champion Holstein.
"This is a very strong, correct
animal, with very few faults," said
Brooke Reinageal-Counts, dairy
show judge. "I would like to have 10
to 20 of these cows in my barn."
Reinageal-Counts selected a Jer-
sey cow, shown by Lori Harrison of
Trenton FFA as reserve champion.
Saturday's dairy cow show was
eventful for both McCall and Har-
rison, who both also placed in dairy
showmanship.

sion, Austin Bagby of Lil' Farmers 4-

H Club placed first, followed by Sa-
mantha Johnson-Streit of Busy Bees
4-H Club in second place.
Kacee Langford of Trenton FFA
took first place honors in the junior
showmanship division, followed by
Aaron Brown also of Trenton FFA in
second place and Shelbi McCall in
third place.
In selecting Langford as first place
winner, Reinageal-Counts said, "I
liked your positive attitude and, your
presence with the animal."
The judge also told Langford and
Brown that she could tell they must
practice showing animals together
because they work smoothly togeth-
er.
"You guys gave me a run for the
money!" Reinageal-Counts said, af-
ter spending nearly 30 minutes try-
ing to decide top showmen and show
women in the junior division.
Trenton FFA's Taylor Langford


took first place in the senior show-
manship division followed by Peaches
Smith of Bell FFA in second place
and Lori Harrison in third place.
"There were three really good
show women in this senior class, but
it all came down to awareness of the
animal you are showing," Reinageal-
Counts said.
Dairy cow superintendent Chris
DeCubellis pointed out that 4-H and
FFA dairy projects are very reward-
ing and teach people life skills like
time-management, decision-making,
resource management and record-
keeping, while instilling a strong
work-ethic in youth.
"The 4-H and'FFA members who
showed animals on Saturday dis-
played the fruits of their hard la-
bor," DeCubellis stated. "Recognize
that the youth in the show are the
real stars; they have all done a great
job!"

Family and friends filled the cool
concrete stands of the arena at the
Suwannee River Fair and Livestock
Show on Saturday evening to see the
Heifer Show.
Shelbi McCall of Dixie Middle
FFA exhibited the Grand Cham-
pion Heifer. Shelbi's heifer was a
1480 pound Shorthorn. The Reserve
Champion heifer was exhibited by
Kole Starnes of Williston Middle
FFA. Koles showed a 840 pound
Simmental heifer.
Taking first in class honors from
Gilchrist County were Erin Jones of
Trenton Sr. FFA, Class 4 and Gray
Childers of the Riverside Wranglers
4-H Club, Class 5. The other first in
class winners included the Chiefland
FFA Chapter heifer, Class 1; Shelbi
McCall of Dixie Middle FFA, Class
2, Kole Starnes of Williston Middle
FFA, Class 3; Hunter Anderson of
Old Town Natives 4-H Club, Class
6; Quin Johnson of Chiefland Middle
FFA, Class 7; Shelbi McCall of Dixie
Middle FFA, Class 8; Shelbi McCall
of Dixie Middle FFA, Class 9.
The Heifer Show concluded with
Jarrett Douglas of Bell Middle FFA
showing his Grand Champion Cow/
Calf Pair.
Jarrett's cow and calf were the only
'entries in Class 10, which was the
Cow/Calf Class.


clock, to be appraised. After taking
one look at the clock branded with
the Coca-Cola logo, appraiser Ron
Mills told Bass that she had a real find
on her hands. Bass explained that the
clock used to hang in an old store in
High Springs and once belonged to
her stepmother.
After looking the clock over thor-
oughly, Mills put a $1,600-$1,800
value on the antique.
Cheryl Davis of Bell brought in
$400 worth of coined silver flatware,
each piece bearing a matching mono-
gram. According to appraiser Vicki
Sustana, coined silver is very popular
right now as people struggling have
taken to scrapping their silver.
"What you have is just awesome!"
Sustana told a delighted Davis.
Like Davis, Terri Barton of
Gainesville brought several family
heirlooms to be appraised including a
dollhouse that was passed down from
her mother, the late Janice Welch of
Trenton. Originally the Victorian
dollhouse belonged to Barton's great-
grandmother and has been passed
down through generations of her fam-
ily. Today, Barton said she keeps the

dollhouse, which is very sentimental
to her, in a china cabinet. Due to its


time worn condition, Sustana placed
a $175 value on the dollhouse.
According to Kyle Stone, execu-
tive director of the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce, the Antique
Road Show drew a large crowd from
as far away as the Villages, who rode
a bus to attend the show.
Judy Cabot of Thonotosassa, Fla.
sent Stone a note on the Chamber
website Monday afternoon express-
ing her appreciation for the weekend
events in Trenton.
"Good day. Just a quick note to
let you know how much my sister
and I enjoyed this past weekend's
events. Your community was pretty
awesome, very friendly and welcom-
ing, and your stores were amazing!
Thanks so much for hosting the va-
riety of events and we hope to visit
your community again next, year,'
stated Judy Cabot.
Stone estimated a crowd of 250
people enjoyed the Antique Road
Show. After the event, Stone said she
plans to add a fifth antique expert
next year to accommodate the large
crowd, since this year's Road Show
went 20 minutes over its scheduled
end time. The Chamber of Commerce
reportedly sold 60 barbecue dinners
at the event.

lish stroller was valued at $1200.


GILCHRIST COUNTY


FAIR


BOOSTERS


Dear Fair Booster,
As you know, this year's Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show is just a couple
of weeks away. We are again working to raise funds to help buy animals that our FFA
and 4-H members will show in this year's fair. Our main gpal is to help establish a
minimum sale price so the youth of our county are all supported equally. We also
support the FFA Chapters and 4-H Clubs of Gilchrist County by trying to purchase
their animals. With your gracious help, last year we were able to raise approximately
$24,664 with which we bought 38 animals. The children that benefited from the
gracious donations all left this experience with a huge smile on their face.
Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund rais-
ing process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to
934 East Wade Street, Trenton, FL 32693. Please give Terry Parrish a call at (352)-
494-4638 or call Brad Smith at (352) 221-5256 if you have questions or if you would
like to personally help with this project.
Again, we really appreciate your help and look forward to your participation this
year.
Sincerely,
Terry Parrish, Julie Thomas, Brad Smith, Scott Akins, Darrell Smith
