City officials consider 5 top applicants for police chief


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
met on March 22 to arrow the pool
of applicants for the Trenton police
chief position to five applicants.
Each commissioner, including
Commissioner Marcia Hellams who
was unable to attend the meeting due
to health issues, turned in a list of
their top five applicants for the posi-
tion. The selection was made from a


list of 16 finalists for the position.
It was decided that if any single ap-
plicant received three or more votes,
then they would be called in for an
interview.
After Administrative Assistant
Robin Heath and City Attorney Da-
vid M. Lang, Jr. tallied the votes,
those receiving five votes each were
Scott Finnen, Andrew B. Johnson,
and Robert R. Webb.

Restaurai

By Carrie A. Mizell
The Olde Boarding House res-
taurant was purchased last week
by a Trenton couple who intend to
once again open a restaurant in the
historic structure on NW 1st Street.
Glenn and Rebecca Gavitt pur-
chased the restaurant last Thursday,
Mar. 24 for $50,000 from Regions
Bank. The property was in foreclo-
sure before the local couple, who
own several restaurants in the area
including Chompers Drive-Thru in
Fanning Springs, purchased it.
Details on when the new sit-
down style restaurant will open
were not available at press time,
though Paul Troke of Troke Realty
said the Gavitts. intend to open the
restaurant in a style similar to the
Olde Boarding House.
The Olde Boarding House was

minutes between each applicant. The
interviews will be open to the public
and will begin at 5.:30 p.m.
Commissioner Randy Rutter ex-
pressed his desire to have .the new
chief live in the city, so that they
might become a part of the local
community.
It was npt decided if the new chief
would only be hired if he agreed to
live in the city limits of Trenton or


not. But it was revealed that the Tren-
ton Police Handbook calls for the
chief to reside within the city even
though the rule has been neglected
over the last several years.
The annual salary range for the po-
sition of Trenton Police Chief is from
$35,428 to $42,640.
The city is also looking for a new
police officer to replace a member of
the staff who is leaving. This position


carries an annual salary of $29,640.
City Manager Taylor Brown told
commissioners that he feels it would
be beneficial to hire the new police
chief first and then let the new chief
take part in the selection of the new
officer.
This position will remain open for
some time, so anyone interested may
contact city hall at 463-4000 for more
information.

Old Town man

dies in tragic

truck accident
By John M. Ayers
An Old Town man lost his life Fri-
day evening in a vehicle accident as
he was traveling north leaving Horse-
shoe Beach on County Road 351.
Florida Highway Patrol Trooper
Alan Harrison reported the accident
occurred at 9:05 p.m. when the driver
lost control of his pickup truck and
slammed into a tree.
Wilton David 'Korde' Osteen, 21,
of Old Town was north bound on
County Road 351 and was reported
to have been traveling at a high rate
of speed whenhe approached a curve
to the left.
The right side tires of the 2004
Chevrolet truck Osteen was driving
reportedly ran off the edge of the
pavement. The driver was reported to
have over corrected the vehicle and
lost control. The truck turned in a
counter clockwise rotation as it trav-
eled across both lanes of the high-
way.
The vehicle continued sliding off
of the west shoulder of the roadway.
The truck was reported to have
overturned several times before the
vehicle struck a pine tree. The driver
was ejected from the truck while the
vehicle was over turning, and he died
at the scene.
Dixie County Emergency Medical
Services responded to the accident.
Trooper Harrison reported the
driver was traveling alone, and was
not wearing a seatbelt at the time of
the accident.
The evidence involving this acci-
dent indicates that alcohol was a con-
tributing factor in this accident.
A full obituary for Wilton David
Osteen is printed on page 8.


Amye Francis displays her new congressional medals on Saturday.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Sixteen-year-old Amye Francis
may not have her driver's license yet,
but that hasn't stopped her from com-
pleting 200 hours of volunteer work.
Congressman Cliff Stearns pre-
sented the Gilchrist County resident
with bronze and silver congressional
award medals on Saturday morning.
The ceremony preceded a town
meeting held at the Trenton Commu-
nity Center.
Since being elected to the House
of Representatives in. 1988, Con-
gressman Steams says he has given
out very few congressional medals,
which makes the awards to Amye all
the more special.
Amye is the daughter of Tracey
and Robert Francis. She is a home
schooled student currently working
on her junior year of high school,
while also being dual-enrolled at


Santa Fe College.
In order to receive the bronze and
silver medals, Amye logged 200 vol-
unteer hours working at a therapeutic
riding facility in Archer, known as
Hope-Horses Helping People.,
She has also provided foster care
for local pet rescue and volunteered
with Gilchrist County 4-H.
Amye has completed over 100
hours of archery training and over
100 hours practicing the violin.
On Saturday, Amye said that she
has just 70 more volunteer hours to
complete before she will obtain the
congressional award gold medal,
which requires an additional 200
hours in volunteer service and an ad-
ditional 100 hours each in physical
fitness and personal development.
She hopes to finish meeting these
requirements by the end of this sum-
mer.

Character Council's


By Geneva Comwell
Anyone of us with perfectly good
intentions can create terrible disas-
ters just by doing right things at the
wrong time.
It is a matter of thinking before
taking action, following safety rules,
asking permission, talking at the right
time, and looking out for danger.
Cautiousness is the highlighted
trait for this month, sponsored by
the Character Council of Gilchrist
County.
Cautiousness comes from the Latin
root caution, which means wariness;
heedfulness. It involves both proper
timing and proper actions. Cautious-
ness avoids rash decisions and is
always alert for possible problems.
Cautiousness creates a sense of secu-
rity. It dispels fear and builds confi-
dence among those who practice it.
Cautiousness is not hasty. It avoids
unnecessary hazards and does not
proceed without due deliberation. It
takes time to reflect and does not al-


Ronnie Sherman


low the urgent to preoccupy the mo-
ment.
Such is the Council's personality
of the month, Mr. Ronnie Sherman.
A deacon at Bethel Baptist Church,
Sherman believes that "so often we,
as humans, want to take everything
on (as if it is our place to solve the


Personality of the Month


problems of the world), but it is so
necessary to seek God" and His tim-
ing. By using cautiousness, we must
"step back and wait."
Sherman, a cancer survivor since
1999, found it necessary to retire in
December 2009 from his job as a site
manager with the Florida Department
of Transportation.
Since he is still being medically
monitored, he felt that his job retire-
ment was in the perfect timing of the
Lord. Through this personal experi-
ence, he related that his relationship
with God has grown and is much bet-
ter than it ever was.
Bro. Ronnie and his wife, Sandra,
have four grown children and five
grandchildren. With his wonder-
ful southern gentleman accent, one
would have never guessed that he was
bom in Vermont. At the age of seven,
Sherman moved with his parents to
Lake City, Florida, and in 1994 he
moved his wife and children to Gil-
christ County. He has been a part of


church and community involvement
ever since. He jovially says that he
has been so busy since retirement
that he needs to retire to slow down.
As an encouragement to others
regarding cautiousness, Sherman be-
lieves that everyone needs to under-
stand their individuality and not pur-
sue something just because a friend is
going down a certain track, for it is so
necessary to "seek the inner peace of
God and spend daily quiet time with
the Lord" to leam what He expects
one to do. Sherman's favorite Scrip-
ture verse comes from Joshua 24:15
and is on a wall hanging in his home,
"As for me and my house, we will
serve the Lord."
All of the above is just a reminder
that even with excellent strategy, the
best plans sometimes fall apart; and
using cautiousness prepares us for
possible failures by strengthening
our character and skills so we can
endure stressful times and overcome
even the greatest of challenges.


t Gilchrist County high school students to

Chris Baker

Trenton's

football

coach takes

new job at

Newberry
By Carrie A. Mizell
The Trenton Tiger football team
will suit up on May 2 for spring train-
ing without head coach Chris Baker.
After three seasons as varsity
coach, Baker announced last week
that he has accepted a head coaching
position at Newberry High School.
On Tuesday 'monming, Trenton
High School Principal Lynette Lang-
ford said that the school hates' to lose
Coach Baker.
"We wish him all the best," Lang-
ford said.
Just who will head coach the var-
sity football team was up in the air
early this week, as the principal con-
ducted interviews of interested can-
didates.
"I would like to hire someone
soon," Langford said.
Trenton was 11-19 in the three
years Baker coached. Last season,
the Tigers went 7-3 and Baker was
named the Gainesville Sun's Small
School Coach of the Year.

Florida will be utilizing computer-
based testing (CBT) beginning this
spring in Gilchrist County Schools.
Students who are in need of the FCAT
Mathematics Retake test will be the
first to experience a state assessment
on the computer. This administration
is scheduled for Monday, April 4,
2011. Even though our students have
experience taking progress monitor-
ing tests on the computer, this will
be the first time they take their state
assessment on the computer. In ad-
dition to the FCAT Mathematics
Retake test, all 10th graders will be
taking their state mathematics assess-
ment on the computer this year.
Prior to each computer-based state
test administration, a student has to
complete a practice test called an
ePAT. The ePAT can be viewed at
www.FLAssessments.com/ePAT.
This practice test provides an oppor-
tunity for the student to become fa-
miliar with the computer-based for-
mat as well as to expose them to the
features which are available to them
when taking the test. For example,
the computer-based test includes a
calculator, highlighter, drop-down
reference sheet, pointer, choice elim-
inator and a ruler.
In May 2011, students complet-
ing Algebra I or Algebra IB will be
taking the Algebra I End of Course
Exam (EOC) which will also be a
computer-based test. The results of
this Algebra I EOC will count 30% of
the student's grade for first time 9th
graders in 2010-2011 school year.
The state's computer-based test-
ing will also be applied to any home
schooled or virtual school students
visiting our schools for 10th grade
mathematics or who have completed
Algebra I as part of their curriculum
this year. Home school parents need
to contact the guidance department at
your home school to schedule your
appointment to take the ePAT as well
the actual computer-based assess-

ment.
TestNav 6.9 (TestNav) is the plat-
form that Florida will use for com-
puter-based statewide assessments.
The software application is installed
either on a file server or on each
computer that will be used for test-
ing. The TestNav software has been
certified to work on our computers in
our high school computer labs. We
are not anticipating any problems
with the technology. The software
has been designed to save a student's
answers on the server to ensure that
if the computer goes down during


testing, the student's work will be
saved.
The District purchased new com-
puters at the start of the school year
for the computer labs in an effort to
prepare for the computer-based as-
sessments. According to Superinten-
dent Don Thomas, "It is very difficult
to keep up with state mandates like
computer-based testing during tough
financial times."
"We wish all students well as they
experience computer-based assess-
ments for the first time," Superinten-
dent Don Thomas.

weekend.
After the district contest, both se-
nior and junior teams walked away
with three of their teams placing

FFA Convention for 13 out of the
last 15 years.
Also, the junior team has been
placed in the top five teams in the
state and recognized at the State
FFA Convention 12 out of the last


13 years. Obviously this Bell chap-
ter has some talent.
In this state contest, the middle
school team consisted of Payton
Ryker, Cole Dipersloot, Evan Wil-
son, Jarrett Douglas, and Hannah
Hurst. Overall, this team placed
third in the state this year!
Also, our high school team con-
sisted of Katie Geiger, Lucas Wil-
son, Kristi Martin, Danielle Hol-
stein, and Sarah Hunter. This year
the team placed llth in the state.
Lastly, the Bell chapter and com-
munity would just like to say "Great
Job!" to these talented students who
represent our small town in a state
wide competition!

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


This past week I had the opportuni-
:ty to fish out of Suwannee in hopes of
picking up a few Sheepshead. 1 had
heard the convict colored species had
moved onto Hedemon reef, a likely
:place for the species to spawn. With
the water temperatures rising almost
daily and the length of day becoming
ever so much longer, I would think
:the time is right for the sheepshead
to spawn.
The weather was forecast for fa-
vorable conditions Friday morning.
.The weather called for winds of 5-10
miles per hour and seas 2 feet or less.
This was just what we were look-
.ing for, as Billy Cannon had wanted
:to take his bay boat to Hedemon to
catch the target species.
SThe day was set; target species first
and then hunt for a few black fish
:and pink mount grunt. I had my boat
-with Mr. Freddy Andrews and Mitch-
ell Cannon. Billy Cannon and Jamie
Claus were in Billy's bay boat. When
:we arrived at the mouth of McGriff
Channel on our way out, I noticed the
-wind had gotten up, but in my boat
1 didn't think anything about it. On
:the other hand, I should have thought
,about BC in his bay boat. After arriv-
ing at Hedemon, the seas were now
3 to 4 foot and the wind was blow-
ing 15 knots with gusts reaching 20
-knots. This is not the type of weather
-you want to be 4 miles offshore in a
:19-foot bay boat. The weather made


fishing impossible for Billy, so they
left and went to Alligator Pass to
catch sand trout. We decided, after
another 30 minutes, to go in too. The
wind had picked up so we made our
way back to the river.
Mr. Freddy and Mitchell were will-
ing to go to East Pass in search of
Sheepshead, so we ran around there.
We found a few salt water catfish and
sand gnats. Neither one were target
species so we were getting ready to
head in.
Billy called on the radio and he ex-
plained the wind had laid and he and
Jamie were going back to Hedemon
and then on to the Honey Hole. The
guys on the Proline decided they too
were up for a trip to the Honey Hole
to catch some black fish so we head-
ed offshore. The wind and waves had
calmed, making conditions much
better for my crew.
We fished for a couple of hours on
the spot. Mitchell honed in his black
fish hooking skills, as he would pull
up two keeper fish at a time. Mr.
Freddy and I both enjoy watching
Mitchell catch the good size fish. We
all had a good time.
The water temperature is rising and
the baitfish seem to be making their
way back into the Big Bend. Fishing
in the Big Bend looks very promis-
ing. Take the time and take a child
fishing; allow them the opportunity
to have a fun day on the water.


What are your thoughts on Triiounty Hospital?

What are your thoughts on Tri-County Hospital?


By Carrie A. Mizell
The poor economy is being blamed
for delaying construction of Tri-
County Hospital in Chiefland, which
according to officials is still in devel-
opment stages.
Frank Schupp, vice president of
business development for Ameris
Management Services, said last week
that hospital officials are very close
to completing the financial and mar-
ket demand feasibility study, which is
an essential element of the package.
According to Schupp, the 5,400
letters of support residents of the
tri-county area previously wrote are


getting kind of old, so he hopes the
community will take a few minutes
to fill out a survey on the need for a
60-bed hospital.
"The continued demonstration of
active community support is essen-
tial if we are to successfully complete
this project," Schupp stated. "To sup-
port the feasibility study we need in-
put from you."
Citizens are asked to take a few
minutes and answer the following

Bell gets coverage Thank you North

in the Journal Florida Holsteins


bDear John,
This is about the anonymous Let-
ter to the Editor you received and re-
ferred to in the March 24 issue.
* The woman asked if you did not
like the students of Bell. What a ri-
'diculous statement. Apparently, she
does not subscribe to the Journal,
as there has always been something
about Bell students in the Journal.
I moved to Gilchrist County 41
years ago this June.
SI started getting the Journal as
far back as I can remember. At one
time, I wrote a column for the Jour-
nal, turning it over to Lois Cosgrove,
who then wrote a column for many
years.
SYou went to school with my chil-
dren, Sue "Benson" Thomas, Debo-
rah "Benson" Pruitt and Dolores
.'Benson" Gunnison. You came to
tny house to see one of my girls;
4 can't remember which one. You
:were a perfect gentleman then, and I
Ido not feel you have changed.
SWhen your Dad passed and you
took over his work, I know you print-
ed the news in a fair and truthful way.
1 know he would be proud of you, as
we are who really know you. God
bless and keep you safe.

A great service was sponsored
by North Florida Holsteins Dairy
this past Saturday, March 26. They
placed themselves in the position as
public servants for the Tri-County
communities by donating cow ma-
nure to gardeners, etc. They also
cooked burgers and hot dogs, and a
great service that was.
I wish to thank North Florida Hol-
steins Dairy for inviting myself and
others to participate.
Le$'s all support them in anyway
we can, especially by using products
that their dairy produces.
I appreciate you and the function
that you sponsored. Thank you very
much.
Kind regards,
Jerry W. Butler, Sr.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Have you ever pondered how far
we have come so fast?
My father plowed cotton with a
mule, and my daughter has a blog aka
a shared on-line journal.
Being old school myself, I learned
to type on a manual typewriter; that
might tell you how old school I am.
Sometimes 1 feel like we are heading
down a disastrous path with all this
technology.
It all happened so fast that I don't
think the mothers and grandmoth-
ers had a chance to sit and teach any
rules for proper etiquette or manners
when using cell phones.
Some time ago I was appalled
when I attended a public meeting
and I heard a cell phone ring. Now
everyone is sitting around with their
thumbs flying sending text messages.
Some are surfing the web on their
phone, stopping only long enough to
check a text sent from some internet
buddy or another. If you are behind
on all this stuff, a text refers to the
exchange of brief written messages
between cell phones.
Texting in itself is not such a bad
thing; it is just when people do it
while sitting in a room with their
family and friends, ignoring the very
people who love them most, to send a
text to someone else.
I'm pretty sure my grandmother
would think it is a very rude practice.


Frankly, I am glad she is not here
to see how people have became so
thoughtless of others. They seem to
think only of themselves and never
consider how it makes the people in
their family feel as they are sending
texts elsewhere. I'll tell you how it
makes me feel; it makes me feel sec-
ondary and belittled. I know, I know
I'm just an old grandma who is clue-
less.
With that off my chest, I'll move on
to a not so high tech world. Last week
Gus, our grandson who is nearly two,
and I went for a short visit with Elo-
ise on her family farm. She took us to
see the baby banty or bantam chicks
which had just hatched out. Gus was
amazed at the baby chicks. They were
just little puff balls of silky black and
white feathers.
After talking at some length about
canning tomatoes, Eloise took me
to see her canning house. This
small storehouse holds floor to ceil-
ing shelves packed with mason jars
filled with most everything that can
be grown in a garden in this part of
Florida. It was quite a sight, and I can
just imagine how much work it took
to put up all those beautiful jars of
vegetables.
A visit with Eloise is good for my
very soul. She helps me remember
what is truly important in this fast
world we live in today. She spends
hours each day doing for others and
seems to always have time for some-
one like me who comes by not nearly
often enough to visit with her. Gus
and I enjoyed our time in her peace-
ful home and barnyard filled with a
menagerie of farm animals.
After returning to her home
kitchen, I commented on her beauti-
ful new stove that any serious cook
would envy. It is some stove with six
burners and all the bells and whistles,
a very high tech beauty. I was stand-
ing there thinking to myself that she
really does need a fine stove with all
the cooking and canning she does. I
was thinking that maybe high tech
was not so bad after all.
But, Eloise did not let me down.
She said when picking out which
stove to buy she told that appliance
salesman, "If I can't use my cast iron
on that fancy stove, I'm just plain not
interested in it."

I'm convinced that dips and salad
dressings are best when made fresh
from scratch.



2/3 cup sour cream
2/3 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
3 drops hot pepper sauce, optional
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
Combine all ingredients and mix
well. Salt to.taste. Cover and refrig-
erate over night. Serve with raw veg-
etables or chips. This dip is also very
good on baked potatoes.


By Marvin Weaver, County Agent
Now that it is growing season and
gardens are planted, the Extension
Office will have a Master Gardener in
the office from 8:30 12:00 on Mon-
days and Wednesdays, from April 11
until the end of May.
Since we are a small office, many
times the agents are out when you
come in. This will give you a time
when you know someone will be in
to answer your questions on insects,
weeds, disease and homeowner ques-
tions you may have.
You can bring in your plant, insect,
etc. or phone 352-463-3174 for an
answer to your questions.
You are still welcome anytime of


the week, but we wanted you to have
the opportunity to utilize the knowl-
edge that the master gardener pro-
gram brings through these gardeners.

Springhouse

Quilters'

News
Springhouse Quilters held their
monthly workshop this past Tuesday
with 20 members attending. Miriam
Otera, a Springhouse member; was
teaching the memltrs a unique pat-
tern using a stained glass method of
quilting. She taught the ladies how to
make blocks featuring a butterfly with
cut out pieces of fabric in the shape
of a butterfly and then applying fus-
ible black bias tape around and over
all edges to give the design black lead
outlining. Miriam has made several
quilts featuring this method of fabric
stained glass and has become very ef-
ficient in making the butterflies and
other objects look real.
The night group of Springhouse
has had a very busy month helping
to make projects for Springhouse to
have for gift shop items. They are
currently working on notebook cov-
ers and their own projects. The night
group includes several ladies who
work and cannot attend day meet-
ings. Their meetings are about 2
hours long each week.

Jieart

Have you ever noticed the humar
tendency to overlook the abundance
of good choices we could make ii
a given situation, and zero in on the
one thing that will destroy us? It al
started way back in the Garden:
"The Lord God took the man
and put him in the Garden of Edei
to work it and take care of it. An<
the Lord God commanded the man
"You are free to eat from any tree ii
the garden; but you must not eat fron
the tree of the knowledge of good an
evil, for when you eat of it you wil
surely die." (Genesis 2:15-17)
Did you get that? "You are free tc
eat from any tree..." God gives no
only His permission, but also Hi:
blessing on ANY tree, except the
ONE tree of the knowledge of good
and evil. You would think that thi
whole "you will surely die" thinl
would be enough for us to keep ou
hands off, but we all know how tha
turned out! In their defense, perhaps:
Adam and Eve' didn't fully under
stand the concept of death...living ii
paradise and all.
Further evidence of our tendency
to prefer one bad choice to man)
good ones is found in the story of thi
Tower of Babel. (Genesis 11) Thi
chapter begins with the whole world
having one language and a common
speech, and men making a choice t<
settle in Shinar (Babylonia) to build
city. Sounds okay, right? Well, thei
reasoning goes like this: "so that we
may make a name for ourselves an<
not be scattered over the face of the
whole earth." (Vs. 4) We may be
tempted here to assume the prob
lem is whom they desire to make o
name for, but there is more to it thai
that. Back in Genesis 9:1, when Goc
blessed Noah and his sons after the
flood, He said to them, "Be fruitfu
and increase in number and fill the
earth." The implication here is tc
continue spreading out and fill the
entire place.
Do you see the possibilities here
After the flood, God's plan was fo
each generation to spread farther an
farther to repopulate the earth. Goc
would bless them to increase in an'


direction! They could go anywhere
and enjoy life in all manner of ways!!
We can be sure this was His plan by
how He responds to the Tower of Ba-
bel. In Genesis 11:8, the Lord "scat-
tered them from there all over the
earth..."As Job 42:2 reminds us, "No
plan of (God's) can be thwarted."
So, now it's your turn and mine.
What endless possibilities God has
offered; He has given us the free-
dom to make so many choices that
He desires to bless, can we learn to
be grateful and blessed within those
choices.., and stay away from the
ones which continue to invite de-
struction into our lives? Because ev-
ery heart really does matter...
Blessings, Angie

I T..TES O,
Mr. Andy Home
When asked why he spends a lot
of his time volunteering and help-
ing out with the youth of Gilchrist
County, his answer was that he
wanted to be able to pass on the life
lessons that were instilled in him.
"By volunteering I'm able to pass
on to the next generation the creed
of black belt excellence, which is
striving for excellence in all areas
of life, not just martial arts," ex-
plained Home. He stresses self-
discipline, respect, good work eth-
ic, goal setting, and being positive.
Achieving these will not only help
in athletics, but in academics and
daily life.
SAs for me, Coach Mehl, I'm
thankful for all the time and ef-
fort.he has put into the boys' bas-
ketball program working with the
players. I look forward to having
him help again next year. Danny
Thomas said, "Success has nothing
to do with what you gain in life or
accomplish for yourself. It's.what
you do for others."

Tigers split, will host Bell

Thursday night


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers traveled to
Mayo to take on the 1A Hornets
Thursday, March 24.
The Tigers were plagued by four
errors not to mention several men-
tal blunders. Mayo played error free
baseball and scratched 10 hits against
the Tigers.
The Tigers were led by Chance
Brooks, Cedric Stokes and Hunter
Williams as each hitter had two hits
in this game.
Trenton started Williams on the
mound. Williams pitched five in-
nings and gave up 6 runs, 4 of them
earned, on eight hits while walking
one and striking out 2 batters. Corbin
Wiggins pitched the sixth inning giv-
ing up two hits and one run with no
walks or strikeouts. The Hornets out-
scored the Tigers 7-4 in a non-district
contest. The Tigers' overall record
fell to 9-3.
The Tigers were at home against
the visiting Branford Bucs on Friday,
March 25, as they were eager to get
back on the winning track after los-
ing to Mayo.
Trenton's bats were sluggish again
and only able to pick up 5 hits against
the talented Bucs.
Chance Brooks started on the
mound for the Tigers and gave up
two runs over five innings, only
one of them earned, on four hits.
He struck out five and walked two.
Caleb Smith picked up Brooks and
pitched the final two innings giving


up two hits while walking two and
striking out one. Smith also gave up
one earned run. The Tigers commit-
ted three errors defensively but were
able to steal five bases on the Bucs
- three bags by Caleb Smith.
In the seventh inning the Bucs
scored and were threatening with run-
ners on first and third when Smith got
the batter to hit a line drive to Hunter
Williams who doubled the runnerup
at first base to end the game. The
Tigers won 5-3 and improved their
overall record to 10-3 and their dis-
trict record to 9-2.
This week the Tigers travel to
Melody Christian on Tuesday and
host the Bell Bulldogs on Thursday
at 7:30 pm. Come out and support
the Tigers.

cated parents. Our success is the result of your communication and involvement with the school as we work to-
gether to make sure that your child learns. The data also indicates areas where we need to improve, to ensure a
quality education for all students. Please know that student achievement is at the heart of all decisions made in our

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 I 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 officer
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April I we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.

$25,000 Tangible Personal
Property Exemption

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

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

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

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

Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is
responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient
property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January I would be responsible for
the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to
avoid problems in this area.
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
A. Whether flly 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 arc 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 minilmumt value. A tangible tax return must
be tiled on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature.
you must file a return which lists your personal property. Iltens that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental uniit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After'
April I, 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 for unreported property. AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILEI.

Honorable Martha Ann Lott

The Honorable Martha
Ann Lott re-elected
Chief Judge
Submitted
The Honorable Martha Ann Lott
has been re-elected for a' second
term as Chief Judge of the Eighth
Judicial Circuit for the two-year
term beginning July 1,2011. Judge
Lott has served as Chief Judge of
the Circuit since July 1, 2009.
The Chief Judge serves as the
chief judicial officer of the circuit,
and maintains liaison in all judi-
cial administrative matters with
the Chief Justice of the Florida
Supreme Court. The Chief Judge.
develops an administrative plan
for the efficient and proper admin-
istration of all courts within the
circuit. Additionally Chief Jifdge
Lott is responsible for the assign-
ment of judges to divisions and the
distribution of staff resources to
support those judicial assignments
throughout the circuit. The Chief
Judge responsibilities also include
overseeing the seven courthouses
within the Eighth Judicial Circuit,
and coordinating efforts with the
six clerks of court for implementa-
tion of new and cost savings tech-
nologies that provide for effective
court access.
The Chief Judge represents the
circuit at both the local and state
level on all matters related to the
court budget and recently Chief
Judge Lott said: "We understand
that it is essential that we operate as
efficiently as possible. The country
is going through difficult economic
times. I believe we can strike the
right balance of keeping the courts
accessible to all people in order to
resolve disputes and maintain pub-
lic safety and still continue to oper-
ate on less than 1% of the budget. 1
appreciate the opportunity to serve
the judges, the staff who allows us
to handle the overload of cases...
and most of all the public. That is
what we are here for. We only have
to look to world news. every night
to remember how lucky we are to
live in a free society, protected by a
balance of power by three indepen-
dent branches of government."

Our Busy Bees 4-H'ers have been
very busy this year with all sorts of
activities. As always, the first part
of the year is sewing garments for
our Fashion Revue. This year we
decided to have each 4-H'er make a
separate garment, instead of every-
one making the same thing. What a
challenge. Many thanks to our lead-

make this activity a success.

Hines, Dylan Wise,








GgLCHRT COUNTYi JUC


Soon a year will have passed since the Deepwater Horizon accident in the Gulf. From the beginning, we have taken responsibility
for the cleanup. Our commitment to the Gulf remains unchanged, as does our responsibility to keep you informed.

Committed to the Gulf
No oil has flowed into the Gulf since July 15th. As our efforts continue, nearly 100% of the waters are open and the beaches are
clean and open. To ensure its safety, Gulf seafood has been more rigorously tested by independent researchers and experts than
any other seafood in the world. To date, BP has spent more than $13 billion in clean-up costs.

Restore the Enviroi. rii.r :;
An additional $282 million has been spent on environmental issues, including wildlife rescue and restoration of wildlife refuges across
the region. We have also committed $500 million to the Gulf of Mexico Research Institute to fund scientific studies on the potential
impact of the spill.

Help to Rebuild the Economy
$5 billion in claims have already been paid. We've committed $20 billion to an independent'fund to pay for environmental
restoration and all legitimate claims, including lost incomes. More than $200 million in grants have been made to the
Gulf Coast States to promote tourism and seafood.

Learn and Sh:r1e: ,: Lessos
This was a tragedy that never should have happened. Our responsibility is to learn from it and share.with competitors, partners,
governments and regulators to help ensure that it never happens again.

We know we haven't always been perfect but we are working to live up to our commitments, both now and in the future.
