By John M. Ayers
When you ride along the rural coun-
try roads in Gilchrist County, nearly
every other mile the traveler will
come upon a peanut field, some as
small as 40 acres and some covering
hundreds of acres. Gilchrist County
Extension Director Marvin Weaver
reported the peanut production in
Gilchrist appears to have reached an
all time high with an estimated 3,500
to 4,000 acres under cultivation in
the 2011 crop season. The Gilchrist
and Levy Extension Directors work
in cooperation with the University of
Florida Institute of Food and Agricul-
ture Sciences. Levy County Exten-
sion Director Anthony Drew reported
the volume of peanut acreage in Levy
is estimated at 24,000 acres in 2011.
Peanuts have also become a bigger
production crop in Dixie County as
acreage is estimated to be at 4,000
acres. Many of the larger producers
in the Tri-County area have begun to
work in cooperation with one another
to get their acreage harvested at the
optimal time.
The Gilchrist Extension Director
reported that peanuts are produced
and sold by contract in tons and also
on the open market. The number of
acres of peanuts produced under
contract was determined beginning
in December 2010 and continued up
until the acreage was planted in late
March 2011. Before the farmers plant
the crop, they enter into and sign a
contract to produce peanuts based on
a fixed price of, for example $500.00
per ton. This is a good price, Weaver
explained; but many farmers will also
sell some of their crop on the open
market. In 2011, the price of peanuts
has risen to above $1,000 a'ton. The
price for contract peanuts is estimated
to be $550.00 per ton.
The Extension Directors work-
ing with agriculture producers in the


These peanuts will dry in the warm dry weather for several days before


they are separated from the plant.
Tri-County area report the drought
conditions in West Florida, Georgia
and other southern states influenced
producers to reduce their acreage of
peanuts and increase the acreage to
cotton. The Extension service reports
that cotton is a crop that produces
better than peanuts in drought condi-
tions. Peanut acreage in South Geor-
gia is reported to be down by as much
as 20% and cotton acreage is up in
these same areas by that estimate.
Weaver and Anthony Drew both
report the conditions for producing
peanuts in the Tri-County area in
2011 could have been better, "If we
had received wetter conditions when
the fields were beginning to set their
yields in the beginning of the sum-
mer," Weaver explained. The Ex-
tension Service estimates that 75%
of the peanut acreage in Gilchrist
County is cultivated under irrigation.
The fields that were irrigated are es-
timated to have produced over 4,000
pounds,per acre. Peanuts on an aver-


age in Gilchrist County are estimated.
to have produced 3,200 pounds to
the acre. "There are some producers
that exceeded this estimate, but this
is an average," Weaver explained.
Anthony Drew reported some of the
best production was in Levy County
where over 5,000 pounds per acre
were reported. Weaver also pointed
out that 80% of the peanuts were
planted through the no till cultivation
practice.
The peanuts that have produced
the best in the Tri-County area range
from Virginia runner type peanuts to
Georgia 06, Tiff Guard and-Florida
07. The Virginia type product brings
the highest quality product, which is
often used for parching and salted in
the shell. "These are the larger type
peanuts that are sold for consumption
at a ball park," he added. The smaller
varieties are used in the production
of candy: The peanuts which are of a
more general variety are used for oils
and other types of products.


Trenton raises Garbage, Water and Sewer rates

D and D Haunted Halls started as a
family just wanting to put on a small
haunted house to attract people in our
tiny town of Bell and celebrate our
favorite holiday. Though it started
small, the haunted house soon be-
came a widely known and attended
attraction at our previous location on
CR 340. The masterminds behind the
whole thing were brother and sister,
Norman Davis and Debbie Deleon-


mTu.

The cast at D and D Haunted Halls


ardo, with the help of their spouses,
children, and friends. As the years
passed, the haunted house grew in
size while the attendees grew in num-
bers. After 10 years on CR 340, due
to unpredicted circumstances, the at-
traction could no longer be held at the
CR 340 location; so brother and sis-
ter split and Norman Davis ventured
on his own to move the attraction to
the Bell' Community Center. With
the help of many loyal actors and
builders, Norman opened D and D
Haunted Halls' first attraction in Bell
in October of 2009.
From the very beginning on CR
340 to present day at the Bell Com-
munity Center, all the proceeds have
gone to various charities. This year
the proceeds' are going to the Bell
imagination library, a foundation that
helps supply children with books to
help expand their minds from birth to
the age of 5.
All actors and builders devote
their time purely by volunteering.
Each year Norman has tried to base
the attraction on a theme. Last year
was Psych Ward and a haunted ship-
wreck. This year, Norman has gone
all out for the theme of Aliens and
Zombies. The Davis family has even
gone as far as mother, Ramona Da-
vis, learning to do prosthetics and
make-up to lend to the effect of the
flesh eating zombies. But it's not all
scare-you-out-of-your-wits around D
and D Haunted Halls. Since moving


to the Bell Community Center, Nor-
man has set up a smaller, less scary
attraction for younger kids to attend.
Last year on Halloween the kiddy at-
traction gave out balloons with D and
D Haunted Halls signature on it and
candy.
This year, as with the haunted
house, the kiddy attraction has been
taken up a notch. On Halloween night
there will be free games, prizes, and
candy for all children who attend. We
even have entertainment for those
waiting in line, Debbie Destin of
Destin Dance Studio and her dancers
will be performing a zombie thriller
dance.
All of us at D and D Haunted Halls
would like to thank our volunteer ac-
tors, attendees to the haunted house,
the Bell Town Council, and Mr. Dan
Cavannah for all their help and sup-
port in putting on this attraction each
year.
D and D Haunted Halls presents
Alien Virus and Rise of the Dead on
October 28, 29 and 31, Friday, Satur-
day, and Monday at the Bell Commu-
nity Center on N. Main Street in Bell
at 8 p.m.-11 p.m. Admission is $4 per
person; kids 6 and under are free.
For the kids 8 and under, free ad
mission to walk-thru haunt, Kiddie
Kind, on Halloween night only from
6 p.m.-9 p.m. with candy and games.
The Bell Imagination Library will re-
ceive 100% of the.proceeds.


The citizens of Trenton will be
paying more for garbage, water and
sewer on their next bill. After some
discussion and several citizens speak-
ing about the steadily increasing rates
for utilities in Trenton, the City Com-
missioners voted unanimously to
raise the rates on garbage pickup.
Longtime area resident and Tren-
ton property owner Kathy Porter re-
minded commissioners that just a few
years ago the utility bills were around
$40 and now they are around $90. She
spoke of her concern for the residents
who are on fixed incomes and barely
making it. It was suggested that the
city go to a weekly pickup instead of
the biweekly pickup it currently uses
to save the residents money.
According to a citizen the price
of rates for garbage pickup is triple
the price that Wesley Sanitation once
charged before the company sold out
to Waste-Pro who has the current
contract with the City. Commissioner
Randy Rutter told those attending the
meeting that at one time the City had
run the garbage pickup and it was
extremely expensive to maintain the
equipment.
The City is currently in a contract
with Waste-Pro which raises rates
each year until it expires in 2013-
2014. The rates have gone up for the
past several years and as the Mayor
reminded the citizens the city only in-
creases the amount for garbage pick-
up just enough to cover the increase
from the contract with Waste-Pro.
In the end the vote was unanimous-
ly in favor of raising the rates.
Each year the city marks up the


price of garbage pickup so they
also profit from the arrangement
with Waste-Pro. According to the
City Manager Taylor Brown, in
the budget year 2009-2010 the city
made $57,480.94, and in the bud-
get year 2010-2011 the city profited
$61,421.85 on garbage pickup.
During the October 11 meeting the
Commissioners passed Resolution
Number 2011-11 which increased
the rates for Water Utility Fees and
Sewer Utility Fees to 3.6% each. This
price increase is based on the Federal
Consumer Price Index. According to
the Resolution the Consumer Price
index was 3.6% higher in July 201.1
than it was in July 2010. According
to Commissioner Rutter this is the
price it costs to do business.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey said,
"If we don't put money in the infra-
structure and something breaks, sew-
ers will be backing up in people's
homes."
Commissioner Arlene Wilks said
her concern is for the citizens of
town. She said, "We have not got a
raise; the people are begging us to do
something." She was the only com-
missioner who voted against the
increase in the rates for water and
sewer fees.
City Manager Taylor Brown made
a PowerPoint presentation regarding
the work that has been done in the
past year at the city's waste-water
treatment plant. He went on to say
that Tim Maynard, the operator of the
plant, had worked hard to improve the
facility. During the past year the two
holding ponds have been cleaned and


repaired at a cost of $18,000 as well
as pumps being repaired and brought
back on line. Many more repairs and
improvements have been made in an
effort to bring the whole system up to
date. He showed photos of the facil-
ity office and said they were in the
process of remodeling it with most of
the work being done inhouse. Brown
said, "We do everything in our power
to keep the cost down."
The ongoing problem of the sink
holes under the the waste-water treat-
ment tank is now being investigated
by the city's insurance agency. Brown
reported that they have sent several
experts out who have done some
drilling. He expects to hear from the
insurance company soon.
All the Commissioners attended
the meeting.

Mrs. Kathy Weaver
Submitted by Geneva Cornwell
In any profession, details make a
big difference. This month the Char-
acter quality of thoroughness will be
taught and learned. In understand-
ing what thoroughness is all about, a
person needs to plan their work, pay
attention to the needed details, make
a list so tasks or items will not be for-
gotten, determine to finish what is be-
gun, and remember that cleaning up
is a part of finishing the job. A per-
son who desires to be thorough must
understand that the trait is knowing
what factors will diminish the effec-
tiveness of one's work or words, if
neglected. Thoroughness ensures the
quality, effectiveness, and comple-
tion of a task; for quality work is last-
ing work; effective work is practical
work, and complete work is fulfilling
work.
Some people confuse perfection
with completion. What is more im-
portant, the perfection of a task, no
matter how long it takes, or the com-
pletion of a task, even with flaws?
Both sides have been argued for
years, but the concept of thorough-
ness offers a solution. Thoroughness
requires both perfection and comple-
tion. It balances the perfection of
each detail with the bigger picture of


completion. It completes a project
perfectly.
This month the Character Council
is highlighting as its personality, Mrs.
Kathy Weaver, a Guidance Counselor
at Bell Elementary School who began
her employment there in 1991. She
loves what she does, although she
needs to juggle lots of information
for the 500 plus students she guides,
and who she calls her "other" grand-
children, who have been added to the
four in her family already. Weaver
must be very careful that details do
not fall through the cracks and she
continues to keep the "big picture"
before her eyes. She claims that she
could not live without "post-a-notes"
and helps students, parents, and other
teachers understand what is expected
by defining jurisdictions as clearly as
possible. A person who desires to be
thorough must also check with others
before making any commitments.
Mrs. Weaver believes that being
thorough is simply something which
is a part of her make-up. She feels
that it is necessary to do exactly what
one is asked to do, and to never say
something to anyone which would be
hurtful. She shared that it was her
mother who taught her, "If it is not
nice or necessary, don't say it, for
you never know whether that person
is hurt or sick."
Weaver got so excited when she
shared how selected students at Bell
are taking part in the daily minute
program over the school's intercom,
where a specific quote is read con-
cerning the particular character trait
of the month. She has become en-
couraged as to how the students are
responding while learning and living
out the qualities as they understand
the meaning of each. Details surely
are a special gifting as a person such
as Kathy Weaver practices thorough-
ness.

V.E. Whitehurst & Sons, Inc. to

resurface NE 60th Ave


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion received three bids to resurface
NE 60th Ave from CR 340 to Ginnie
Springs. The Commission listened
as Lee Mills of Mills Engineering
reported the three bids that were
received for consideration of this
project. Mills explained bids were
submitted from Oldcastle Southern
Group, Inc. d/b/a APAC-South, Inc.
$170,260.65; John C. Hipp Construc-
tion Co. $148,500.69 and V.E. White-
hurst & Sons, Inc. $136,495.60.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
in reviewing the bids summary sheet
asked how did the three contrac-
tors determine the estimated cost of
mobilization of equipment into Gil-
christ County. Mobilization is a line
item identified in the bid specifica-
tions, and the contractors submitted
the following prices for mobiliza-
tion in their bids: Whitehurst's bid


of $3,300 compared to $8,461.00 for
Hipp Construction and $10,779.17
for APEC Southeast. Mills reported
that Whitehurst is currently working
on two other projects in the county,
and he estimates because they have
their equipment already in the area, it
would cost them less for the mobili-
zation to this particular site.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
made a motion to approve the bid
from V.E. Whitehurst & Sons, Inc.
at $136,495.60 for the resurfacing on
this project. Commissioner Tommy
Langford agreed and gave. a second
to the motion for discussion. The
board approved the motion by a 5-0
vote.
Lee Mills reported.to the Com-
mission that after he meets with the
contractor to review this project spe-
cifics, they would probably want to
begin work on this job as soon as
possible.

Letter to the Editor 14 ..a_ I i11l


Spirit of the Tiger
Our Country's economic crisis has
changed the outlook of everyone in
our small town of Trenton. Families
have lost income, jobs, and compared
to the problems that we all face, the
small group of young people I am
writing about may seem trivial to
many. However, I am writing to
commend not only the members of
the Trenton High School Marching
Band and their parents who support
them but also Mrs. Lynette Langford,
who assured parents and students she
would find a band director and keep
the band program alive. The encour-
agement offered by Mrs. Langford
was a light in a very dark place for
this small group of Gilchrist County
students.
During the year of 2010, the Tren-
ton High School Marching Band was
honored to qualify to compete in the.
Florida State Band Competition. The
Tigers placed 16th overall in ratings
and the percussion section placed
llth in the State Finals. This small
group of young people had high
hopes for the 2011 school year.
High hopes which were crushed
the first day of band camp when they
were told they did not have a band
director. The Tigers perservered
throughout band camp, without the
direction needed to compete with
other schools. Props that were a cen-
tral part of their show were missing
and each rehearsal was improvised
to fit their needs. The Tigers were at
camp each day and with the help of
a few parents they did learn two of
the music numbers for their musical
competition.
When other schools were practic-
ing, the Tigers were cleaning rooms,
instruments, rehearsing scales, and
patiently waiting for a Band Director
to lead them. The small band could
go no farther without a director.
Upon hearing that many other
schools had closed their music pro-
gram, the band students began to not
only despair of having a program for
the 2011 school year, but also wor-
ried their program would be a part of
the many budget cuts. Mrs. Lynette
Langford met with Band Boosters
and the students and told them a new
director would be hired and not to
lose hope. Parents and grandparents
helped with uniform fitting, camp,
and spirit-lifting when the band stu-
dents saw the time slipping by them
to find a director.
When a band director was hired,
the Trenton Tigers were ready for the
new year. Unfortunately, the Band
Director only stayed two days and
resigned due to health reasons. The
Tiger Band once again began to prac-
tice on their own. The Tigers also
faced the loss of their fellow students
and captains who left at this time as
well.


Last month, Ms. Amy Worst was
hired to be the new band director.
Ms. Worst is an accomplished con-
cert band director. 1 am not a mu-
sic educator; 1 am also not a former
member of a marching band. The
difficulty in switching from concert
band to marching band is beyond my
comprehension. I would like to com-
mend this young woman from South
Dakota who moved here without
family and took on a marching band
with no previous marching band ex-
perience. Ms. Worst has begun the
task of forging a diverse musical
family of which I am honored to be
a small part.
The Trenton Marching Band has
faced challenges, and a few bad
starts. However, this very young
band of Junior High and High School
students are still here. They hold
their heads high and perform for you
to the best of their ability. They per-
form a half-time show that has been
composed, taught, and performed in
only one week. Sadly, due to the late
start, the band will not be participat-
ing in competition this year. After
overcoming all that has happened to
the Tiger Pride Marching Band, I will
be looking forward to next year to see
what they can accomplish.
We may face many challenges as
a nation this year, and many prayers
are needed by all of the families
struggling at this time. However, just
for today, I watched 19 young people
who have shown a strength and char-
acter and spirit that is not always seen
today. When others have given up,
walked away, these young adults have
stood their ground and fought for a
place in the world. The glimpses of
the men and women they will some-
day be have encouraged me in these
dark times. I would like to thank all
the teachers, parents, ministers, and
families who have shown them how
to improvise, adapt, overcome, and
to never lose faith in themselves and
what tomorrow may bring.
God bless you all!

Spider Webs
(Kent Heaton)


The spider's ability to weave a web is one of the
marvels of the animal kingdom. A small creature creates a
masterpiece of intricate patterns suited for its own
survival. In the Old Testament the writer ascribes
greatness to four small creatures. "There are four things
which are little on the earth, but they are exceedingly
wise: the ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare
their food in the summer; the rock badgers are a feeble
folk, yet they make their homes in the crags; the locusts
have no king, yet they all advance in ranks; the spider
skillfully grasps with its hands, and it is in kings'
palaces" (Proverbs 30:24-28). Sometimes the spider
skillfully weaves its web on biking trails.
Each morning I enjoy a long bike ride on a nature trail
near my home. Lined with trees on one side and a large
avenue of tall grass, bushes and small trees on the other, it
becomes a haven of squirrels, rabbits, fox, a snake or two
and lots of spider webs. Those who wish to ride this trail
must wait until daylight to make certain the webs that
sometimes fall across the trail do not cause more harm
than necessary. Riding east the many strands of webs fall
gently down to the pavement or a piece of grass or small
tree reflected by the morning sun. What is marvelous
about this order of things is to consider the size of the
spider and the height of its strands.
No matter the size of a spider (and most of the spiders
are small compared to others) one thing is very clear: the
long strands of web which may reach a length of 10 or 12
feet were not made from a spider jumping from the
ground to the tree limb but the spider beginning from the
highest point and spinning the web downward. Spiders
may 'jump' but their vertt" is not much. A spider will
make his web from the top and dangle down to something


below thereby creating the avenue necessary to return to
the top and begin creation of its web. But this would not
be possible if it tried to start from the ground. His life
begins at the top!
There is a lesson for man taught from a spider's web:
man can't jump either. "0 Lord, I know the way of man
is hot in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his
own steps" (Jeremiah 10:23). No matter how hard man
tries he can never succeed in building his life from the
ground up. The only way man will find happiness and
peace is when he begins "on high." The existence of man
is dependent upon the One who reigns above and that is
Jehovah God. Beginning without God will end in defeat.
The spider knows it must begin on high but man tries
to build the web of his life with his own wisdom. His web
is grounded and without function. "But I am poor and
sorrowful; let Your salvation, 0 God, set me up on high "
(Psalms 69:29). God sent His Son, from on high to lift
man from sin. Through Jesus Christ we begin on high and
live our lives in service to the will of God on high. Our
lives are not built upon this world but the world to come.
"We do not look at the things which are seen, but at the
things which are not seen. For the things which are seen
are temporary, but the things which are not seen are
eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:18).
Where does wisdom come from? It must come from
"above" (James 1:17; 13-18). What is the focus of your
life? "If then you were raised with Christ, seek those
things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the
right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not
on things on the earth" (Colossians 3:1-2). Seek things
above; set your mind above. Learn the lesson of the
spider start from above where God is!

COOKING AND
"There is always enough love in
my heart for just one more."--Idell
Beauchamp a/k/a Shannie
Many, many years ago my late
grandmother's dear friend Mildred
asked her just how many more grand-
children did she think she would have
after Shannie happily announced that
another grandchild was on the way.
You see, Mildred did not have any
children of her own and could not un-
derstand why my grandmother was
excited about yet another grandchild.
Shannie's reply was "There is always
enough love in my heart for just one
more."
In the wee hours of Monday morn-
ing my grandmother's words came
back to me, as I held our precious
new born grandson for the first time.
I knew just how my grandmother felt
about her plethora of grandchildren
as my heart filled with love for this
sweet baby boy. Whitt's mother Car-
rie is just fine and thrilled with her
son as is his father, Adam. Big sister
Allie Claire who is now three might
have said it best when she declared
"Baby Whitt is just perfect."
Cousin Gus has been telling us for
the last week that he is going to help
Allie squeeeeeze baby Whitt... gen-
tly. Needless to say Me-Me is going
to have lots of help babysitting the
new baby once Momma goes back to
work at the Journal.
All and all, the Ayers and Mizell
families are feeling extra blessed that
the good Lord has entrusted us with
this sweet baby boy to love and care
for.


many more breast cancers are being
detected in the early stages and that
the recovery rates for these patients
are very good.
After the meeting, members start-

members who baked cookies, brown-
ies and cakes for desserts and also to

The following recipe is all about
Fall. The only way I might improve
it is sprinkling a few chopped pecans
across the top of the pancake batter
once it's poured into the pan.



1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon soda
teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 cup buttermilk
2 tablespoons oil
Mix dry ingredients together. Add
the rest of ingredients next, and mix
well. Cook pancakes in buttered fry-
ing pan until done.




3 cooking apples
1/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Peel and cut up apples, place in
frying pan with 1 tablespoon water.
Cook for about five minutes over
medium heat then add brown sugar,
cinnamon, butter and vanilla. Cook
apples until tender. Spoon apples
over pancakes and serve. Note some
apples need more sugar than others,
so feel free to add some extra sugar if
the apples are still too tart after they
are cooked.

getting off to a great start. We have
had 11 squares completed so far and
we'll need another 30 or more before
we can start to assemble the quilt. If
we have more squares than we need

those squares.

free. We have so much donated to us
and we enjoy sharing with others.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Trenton Water Department Has Committed a Monitoring Violation of Florida Drinking Water Rules
What happened?
Our Community public water system recently violated a drinking water rule. Although this is not an emergency, as
our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do, and what we are doing to correct this
situation.
We did not sample for the required contaminants and were therefore in violation of monitoring and reporting
requirements. The table below indicates the contaminants which we failed to sample and when we should have
sampled for these contaminants. Because we did not take the required samples, we did not know whether the
contaminants were present in your drinking water, and we are unable to tell you whether your health was at risk
during that time.
What should I do?

please see the attached Drinking Water Contaminants list for all individual parameters in each category.
Some people who drink'water containing the above listed contaminants could become seriously ill.
Anycustomers who are concerned about their exposure to these contaminants can choose alternative sources of
water for ingestion.
What does this mean
This is not an immediate risk. If it had been, you would have been notified immediately.
What is being done?
ii e 2011. The sampl wivere inimediatelN sent to the lab and results indicated that all of'.; above tested contaminants
were non-existent, below or within the normal/acceptable ranges set by Florida DEP requirements. Test results were
received by the City on September 12; 2011.

For more information, please contact City of Trenton City Manager Taylor Brown at 352-463-4000 extension 301 or

Confidence is a skill that can give
an individual or team an edge when
it's crunch time or when one has to
perform under pressure. Confidence
is a result of hard work, practice, and
feeds off of past success and helps
ensure future successes. Our 4-H
member of the week has built his
confidence through completing mul-
tiple 4-H projects and having postiive
experiences while giving demonstra-
tions, in the livestock show ring, as
a club officer, and now as a County
Council officer. Tucker McDaniel is
a 14 year old member of the Mossy
Oaks 4-H Club and the SWAT 4-H
Club and is this year's 4-H County
Council Vice-President. Tucker has

been in 4-H since he was a cloverbud
and each and every year finds new
ways to get the most out of his 4-H
experience.
Tucker takes 4-H very seriously
and strives for excellence in all his
projects. Tucker has done an excel-
lent job with his laying hen projects
and garden projects in recent years
and along with his participation in
the Hog and Ham project has raised
a great deal of food for his family's
table. Tucker loves the swine project
and came very close to winning it all
at last year's Suwannee River Youth
Fair hog show. Tucker's hog won
its class and division and was one
of the final three in the ring. Tucker
has gone beyond the traditional live-
stock and agriculture projects and
taken advantage of some opportuni-
ties unique to Gilchrist County 4-H.
Tucker is a charter member of the
SWAT (Students Working Against
Tobacco) 4-H Club in Trenton. This
dual club has gained state notoriety
for what it's been able to accomplish
educating other young people about
the dangers of tobacco use. Tucker
also has two new hobbies as a re-
sult of his 4-H participation...guitar
picking and wood turning. Tucker
is part of the 4-H Guitar Classes and
now Tucker is getting to be a pretty
good guitar player and continues to
improve. This group of 4-H'ers went

some of his fellow 4-H members at
our awards banquet and will perform
November 18 at the Fall Family Fun
Fest. Tucker has also learned to turn
wood in 4-H through participation
in the Wood Turning Day Camp this
summer. Volunteers from the Bell
Wood Turners helped our 4-H mem-
bers learn how to make beautiful
items on a wood lathe. Tucker has
made candle sticks, bowls, a gavel,
an ink pen and many other fantastic
pieces of art work on his lathe.
These successes and positive expe-
riences have helped transform Tucker
into one of our best young leaders in
the county. As Tucker keeps gaining
confidence through his success in 4-
H and matures into an adult I know
he'll be a terrific asset to our local
community for many years to come.
Your son or daughter can also gain
confidence through success in 4-H.
Just call 352/463-3174 to find out
how you can enroll your 5-18 year
old into a local 4-H club. Congratu-
lations to Tucker McDaniel for being

Florida Department From the Desk of Gilchrist County
of Health urges Sheriff Daniel Slaughter
Floridians to help Weekly Sheriff's Report
prevent seasonal flu WEEK ENDING:


Submitted
Flu season is here and the Florida
Department of Health (DOH) urges
residents and visitors to take precau-
tions to help limit their risk of expo-
sure to infection. Compared to most
other viral respiratory infections such
as the common cold, seasonal influ-
enza often leads to a more severe ill-
ness, causing approximately 36,000
individuals in the U.S. die from this
infection and complications each
year.
"The most effective measures
we can use to fight this illness and
safeguard our communities are get-
ting vaccinated and practicing good
hygiene habits," said State Surgeon
General Dr. Frank Farmer. "Floridi-
ans can do simple things to minimize
their own risk of exposure to the vi-
rus and to prevent its transmission to
others if they become ill. If you do
these things, you contribute to both
.your own health and your communi-
ty'shealth."
Symptoms of the flu that should be
monitored include headache, fever,
severe cough, runny nose or body
aches. Contact your health care pro-
vider immediately if symptoms ap-
pear.
The 2011-2012 flu vaccine will
protect against influenza A, B and
H1N1. Individuals six months of age
and older should get a flu vaccination,
especially young children, pregnant
women, those with chronic health
conditions like asthma, diabetes or
heart and lung disease and people 65
years and older who are at increased
risk for severe flu complications. It is
also important for health care work-
ers and other people who live with or
care for high risk people to be vac-
cinated. Since children younger than
six months are too young to receive
the vaccine, people who care for them
should be vaccinated instead.
To locate available flu vaccine in
your community contact your health-
care provider or visit: http://www.
doh.state.fl.us/Disease_ctrl/immune/
flu/flu_locator.htm

DOH website at www.doh.state.fl.us.

SRWMD designates four basins as water

resource caution areas


These regions were designated as water resource caution areas on Oct.


Submitted
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) is one step .
closer to developing a plan to meet
water demands in areas of critical
concern.
The District's Governing Board on
Oct. 11 designated the Alapaha River
Basin, Upper Suwannee River Re-


gion, and Upper and Lower Santa Fe
river basins as water resource caution
areas. The District's 2010 Water Sup-
ply Assessment designated those ar-
eas as water supply planning regions
last December, and under chapter
62-40.520(2), Florida Administrative
Code, the District is required to des-
ignate those areas as water resource


caution areas within a 12-month pe-
riod.
The designation means that ground-
water sources in those areas are not
adequate to meet future needs over a
20-year period and that regional water
supply plans are needed to find water
sources to meet demands. The des-
ignation also means that the District
will initiate water supply planning in
those regions and will prepare one or
more regional water supply plans.
The District is required under
Chapter 373, Florida Statutes, to de-
velop regional water supply plans for
areas where groundwater sources are
not adequate to meet future needs
over a 20-year period.
The District's 2010 Water Sup-
ply Assessment addressed declining
groundwater levels in the northeast-
ern portion of the District due to re-
gional withdrawals. These areas in-
clude parts of Alachua, Baker, Brad-
ford, Columbia, Gilchrist, Hamilton,
Suwannee, and Union counties.
"These declining levels are predict-
ed to impact river and spring flows in
certain areas over the next 20 years,"
said Carlos Herd, District water sup-
ply project manager.
The District has begun to identify
strategies to offset projected water
resource impacts. On Oct. 11, the
governing board approved a measure
to allow the District to seek funding
assistance for a study to find ways to
recharge the Upper Floridan aquifer.
The District will also expand its re-
claimed water program and employ
water conservation measures to help
recover groundwater levels and pre-
vent additional water resource im-
pacts.
The District is also preparing an
update to its regional groundwater
flow model in order to better predict
water resource impacts that may oc-
cur from groundwater withdrawals.
The District continues development
of minimum flows and levels (MLFs)
to determine the amount of water that
can be removed from the natural sys-
tem without causing significant harm
to the resources and the ecology.
The District is working with the
St. Johns River Water Management
District in its water supply planning
process to address concerns over de-
clining groundwater levels that are
affecting both districts. Both districts
and the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection entered into an
interagency agreement in September,
which requires the districts to coordi-
nate on water use permitting and wa-
ter supply planning activities when
proposed withdrawals may contribute
to impacts across district boundaries.

to uphold. Carol Cromwell told the
board, "My husband and I want to
live in a good neighborhood, be good
neighbors and retire in an area that
will be pleasant with good neighbors
around us. That is why we chose to
come into this community and buy
a house instead of having a mobile
home moved onto our property. We
want the people in this community to
