Sheriff will not seek r


re-election in 2012 .


By Daniel W. Slaughter
To the citizens of Gilchrist County:
It is with much reflection with fam-
ily and close friends that today I an-
nounce my intention not to run. for
re-election for the position of Sheriff,
Gilchrist County, Florida.
In my 25+ years of law enforce-
ment, I have been honored to serve
with countless brave men and women
whose goals have been providing a
safe and peaceful community to live,
work, and raise a family. Throughout
my career, I have been guided by the
basic principles of leadership, integ-
rity, and respect for others.
From the beginning, my motto has
been simple: Do the right thing.
To me, the position of sheriff has
never been about title, status, or au-
thority. It has been about leading
men and women to provide the best
services to our community in a safe,
timely, effective, and financially
sound way.
When I initially announced my
candidacy for sheriff in March of
2008, it was based on a platform of
providing quality service, steward-
ship of tax dollars, and a commitment
to partner with citizens and financial
policymakers within the county to
address common concerns.
To that end, the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office has seen great suc-
cess. Like most families and busi-
nesses, the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office has been challenged with lim-
ited budgets and resources. Our mis-
sion has been to provide the same
exceptional service during difficult
economic times, with non-notice-
able impact to the community. It is
not over yet, as this commitment and
these services will continue for the
next year as great work can and will
still be accomplished.
Like any great organization, the
success of a few is supported by
many. I would like to thank the men
and women of the GCSO for the ded-
ication and tireless service to their
community whil6 putting service be-
fore themselves. I would also like to
thank the Commissioners of Gilchrist
County for their keen understanding
of the GCSO mission, scope of work,
and foi working with me to establish
a budget that ensures no impact to
services provided. Their partnership
has been invaluable. Lastly, I would
like to thank you, the citizens of Gil-
christ County. As expressed when I
ran for office, the Gilchrist County


Sheriff Daniel W. Slaughter
Sheriff's Office is your sheriff's of-
fice. Your support and feedback have
helped me shape an office that repre-
sents the needs of its people, and one
that you should be proud of.
In the coming months, like most
voters of Gilchrist County, I will be
evaluating the candidates running for
sheriff and will be carefully consid-
ering their individual credentials for
the position. The next sheriff of Gil-
christ County will be charged with
continuing to improve the GCSO in a
tough financial environment. There is
no doubt we' will need a well-round-
ed leader with vast law enforcement
experience who can work with the
budget and policymakers of Gilchrist
County to make difficult budgeting
decisions. To the candidates, remem-
ber that you can clearly-outline your
strengths and visions in a positive
way. Divisiveness and smear tactics
detract from the message you are try-
ing to deliver. As a leader, you will
be looked upon to conduct yourself
in a respectful and professional man-
ner. Strive to unite and not divide. In
the end, you will still be a member of
a community we all wish to see suc-
ceed.
While it is never easy to leave a
place and team of people you care
about, I feel pride in the fact that I
will leave the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office in a solid financial state
with men and women who are better
resource and trained.
Lastly, when I retire, Cindy and I
intend to travel and enjoy the impor-
tant aspects of life: family, friends,
and the community to which we be-
long.
God Bless you, Gilchrist County,
and the United States of America.


Fire destroys Bryant home


By Carrie A. Mizell
Paul and Susan Bryant were out
of town huntingi on Monday night
when a fire i.ivaged their home.
The fire reportedly started just af-
ter midnight, possibly in a detached
carport area east of the home.
According to Billy Careccia,
Gilchrist County fire chief, strong
winds blew the fire from the carport
Sonto the home.
Though the Bryants lost all their
possessions in the fire, Susan stood
in her front yard Tuesday morning
with a grateful heart.
"We have what's important," Su-
san said. "What we lost were just
things."
Paul was reportedly hunting in
Dixie County at the time of the fire
and Susan was in Madison with her
daughter-in-law and grandchildren
hunting when their son Todd Bry-
ant called her to say a fire had de-
stroyed their home of 33 years.


Paul and Susan Bryant's home faces SW 65th Street.

fice, serving in Gilchrist County. Mr.
Schultz served as a police advisor

judicial system makes him uniquely
qualified to be the next Sheriff of

strong moral values and a desire to
serve which has made me the person
that I am today. The time has come
for me to give something back and
serve them."


Trenton Library burglarized
By Carrie A. Mizell
Three laptop computers were stolen from the Trenton Library during a late
night burglary last week.
According to Trenton Police Chief Jim Raven, the burglar smashed a glass
window to gain access into the building sometime between 8 p.m. on Thurs-
day, Dec. 29 and 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Dec. 30.
The computers were valued at $1,500 each. The police chief said there is
no alarm system at the Trenton Library.
On Tuesday, Chief Raven indicated that he believes the burglar acted alone
and that this burglary is not related to the vehicle break-ins that occurred
recently at the Trenton Depot.
Anyone with information on this burglary is asked to call the Trenton Po-
lice Department at 463-4010.


Republicans

rise in

numbers
By Carrie A. Mizell
As of Tuesday, Jan. 3, Gilchrist
County had just 199 more registered
democrats than Republicans.
According to Tracy Ridgeway, as-
sistant supervisor of elections, the
number of registered Republicans
in the county has risen in the weeks
leading up to the Presidential Prefer-
ence Primary on January 31.
The Supervisor of Elections web-
site indicated earlier this week that
there are now 4,707 registered Dem-
ocrats and 4,508 registered Republi-
cans in Gilchrist County.
"We've had 14 in the last week
come in and change their party affili-
ation to Republican or register to vote
as a Republican," Ridgeway said.
In the 2008 Presidential Preference
Primary, there were 3,439 registered
Republicans in the county and of
those, just 1,898 voted in the Presi-
dential Preference Primary on Janu-
ary 29, 2008.
In the last general election held in
Gilchrist County, which was Novem-
ber 2, 2010, there were 4,317 regis-
tered Republicans in the county.
The last day to register as a Repub-
lican to vote in the Presidential Pref-
erence Primary was Tuesday, Jan. 3,
Ridgeway explained.

,are up for election: Sheriff, Clerk
of Court, Tax Collector, Property
Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections,
County Judge, School Board Districts
2 and 4, and County Commissioners
Districts 1, 3, and 5.


Crosby will start at


$75,000 salary


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners took action to officially hire
Bobby Crosby on Tuesday after all
parties agreed to a $75,000 annual
salary and no severance package.
Crosby had asked for an annual
salary of $78,000 and a 16-week sev-
erance package.
"I will accept it because the group
I stand before, I have a lot of confi-
dence in," Crosby said of the county
commissioners.
In an initial meeting with Tommy
Langford, Joe Gilliam and John
McPherson, Crosby was presented
with a draft contract that reflected a
starting salary of $75,000 and no sev-
erance package.
According to McPherson, Crosby
considered that during the negotia-
tion before suggesting $78,000 and a
16-week severance package.


"This request by Mr. Crosby did
not seem unreasonable," McPherson
said in presenting a draft contract.to
the county commissioners for their
consideration on Tuesday.

SHIP homeowner defaults on home loan


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners instructed the county attorney
to take action on Monday against a
Trenton homeowner who has default-
ed on a SHIP loan agreement.
Kristina Castor Bush has "shown
no ownership responsibility of any
kind," said Charlotte Pedersen, SHIP
administrator.
Bush was approved for a loan
through the SHIP program on April
3, 2006, and subsequently closed on
a single-family home located at 323
NE 3rd Avenue in Trenton on July
26, 2006.
Problems started the following year
in what Pedersen calls "a building is-
sue" with the SHIP homeowner, who
initially claimed a husband Christo-
pher Castor, and one child as also be-
ing residents of the home.
Over the last five years, Pedersen
has sent Bush five letters trying to re-
solve conflicts surrounding the SHIP
loan.
On Oct. 20, 2010, Pedersen sent
Bush a letter explaining that she had
reviewed her SHIP file and found that
no current insurance information was
on file for the home.
"As part of the program you must
list the Board of County Commis-
sioners as loss payee on your hom-
eowner policy," Pedersen explained.
The last information sent in to
the SHIP office by Bush's insurance
agent was for a Sept. 29, 2009, cover-
age period.
In her initial letter to Bush, Ped-
ersen asked that she contact her in-
surance agent and have the Board of
County Commissioners listed and
have the agent send a copy of the


policy to the SHIP office.
As of Tuesday, Pedersen had still
not received the insurance informa-
tion. After contacting the listed insur-
er Southern Insurance of Chiefland
on Dec. 13, 2011, Pedersen found that
the homeowner has not had coverage
with them in more than 18 months.
Another letter was sent to Bush on
October 25, 2011, after an inspection
was performed by Pedersen and Code
Enforcement Officer Diane Rondolet
on Sept. 20, 2011, During that visit
Pedersen and Rondolet found the
front door ajar, a broken window,
dishes piled high in the sink, yard.
sale remnants all over the carport and
clutter covering much of the front
rooms in the home.
In the letter, Pedersen states, "Dur-
ing that visit you were given ample
time to clean up the property, fix
the broken window and secure the
premises. As of October 18, 2011,
upon final inspection you still have
not followed through with your ver-
bal agreement; likewise you have
not contacted this office to make any
further arrangements for a new time
allowance."
Pedersen said that the home's elec-
tricity and utilities had been turned
off due to non payment but appeared
to be back on this week.
The SHIP administrator gave Bush
numerous opportunities to correct the
issues at the home before turning the
issue over to the county.
On Tuesday, the county commis-
sioners advised the county attorney
to write Bush a letter advising her to
provide current insurance coverage
on the home, or the county would be
forced to take action against her.

Moving our Economy forward


Submitted
USDA Farm Service Agency State
Executive Director Tim Manning
states we learned that farm income
in 2011 is forecast to reach an all-
time high, up 28 percent over 2010,
signaling that American agriculture
remains a bright spot in our nation's
economy. The growth in farm in-
come is also making a real difference
for America's farm families, whose
household income was up 3.1 percent
in 2010 and is forecast to increase 1.2
percent in 2011. And despite mar-
ginal increases in retail food prices,
all American families still pay sub-
stantially less for food at the grocery
store than residents of nearly every
other country thanks to the produc-
tivity of our farmers. All told, this is
good news for our national economy.
A combination of factors has
made this growth possible, including
strong returns on cash receipts and
off-farm employment, strong yields
despite weather setbacks, and record
high farm exports, which continue to
make U.S. agriculture one of the only
sectors of our economy to log a trade
surplus year after year.
Exports support nearly 10 million
American jobs. Overall, U.S. agricul-
ture supports 1 in 12 American jobs
in all sorts of industries from pick-
ing and processing, to packing and
shipping, to shelving at your local
market. Farm exports support more
than 1.1 million jobs here at home.
A few weeks back, President Obama
signed into law a major piece of his
jobs agenda: new trade agreements
with Colombia, Panama and South
Korea. These agreements will sup-
port tens of thousands of jobs here
at home, put unemployed Americans


back to work, and open new oppor-
tunities for American businesses. For
America's farmers and ranchers, the
trade agreements provide our best
opportunity to build upon what has
been a record year for U.S. agricul-
ture. Combined, the agreements will
generate an additional $2.3 billion in
farm exports next year alone.
USDA believes that America needs
an economy that makes, creates, in-
novates and exports. And there is no
better way to spur productivity than
by putting more money back into the
pockets of American families. The
current payroll tax cut has given tax
breaks to millions of families across
the country this year, and now Con-
gress is deciding whether it should be
extended in 2012.
If the current payroll tax cut is not
extended, taxes will go up on mil-
lions of people at a time when fami-
lies are struggling to make ends meet.
A typical household earning $50,000
a year will see their taxes increase
by $1,000. The administration's plan
would give the typical family earning
$50,000 a year an additional $500,
for a total tax cut of $1,500, provid-
ing assistance to middle class fami-
lies at a time when many are still try-
ing to get back on their feet.
For our part, USDA will continue
to maintain a strong farm safety net,
expand local and regional food sys-
tems, and promote greater export
opportunities for U.S. agriculture,
all designed to increase incomes for
America's farm families. But to help
rebuild an economy that restores
security for the middle class and re-
news opportunity for folks trying to
reach the middle class, we also need
to invest in the middle class.

I Am Resolved
(Kent Heaton)


The spirit of a fresh beginning brings out a supreme
desire to make life better with a new opportunity. A new
page invites new words; a new year suggests rededication;
new relationships open doors for better conversation; the
harmony of a road not travelled will inspire many to seek
higher planes. Whatever the reason, the human spirit
thrives on the unique character of new beginnings.
With each passing year a resolution is born of the
remembrance of days gone by with its successes and
failures. Birthdays celebrated remind us of the passing
saga of age. Plans made are realized and sometimes
dashed but the essence of life continues to thrive upon the
reality of one more day giving rise to one more chance.
The New Year is a sign post in life that helps man to
remember the "vapor" of life (James 4:14). Was it not just
yesterday the world was consumed by the "millennial
bug" of fear for the changing of the calendar to another
century? That was twelve years ago. Time marches on.
Separating us from all other forms of life is a desire to
better our station in life. Being made in the image of an
eternal being (Genesis 1:26-27) exalts our knowledge of
the past with a dim hope of a future. The resolutions we
seek to make and' then try hard to keep come from an
earnest need to rise above our failures and disappointment.
"The ten pounds I resolved to lose last year will be
accomplished this year; we say. Myriad are the promises
of resolution made from year to year and so often falling
upon the cobblestone steps of apathy and disinterest.
In our efforts to better ourselves we must find the moral
courage to stand against the despair that washes away our


STREETWISE
By Lauren Rudd


"...The world looks brand-new,"
said Hobbes. "A New Year...a fresh
clean start," said Calvin. "It's like
having a big white sheet of paper to
draw on," said Hobbes. "A day full
of possibilities," said Calvin. "It's a
magical world, Hobbes old buddy...
let's go exploring."
Bill Watterson wrote those words
in December of 1995 as he conclud-
ed the last of his Calvin and Hobbes
comic strips. Every year since then
I open my first column of the New
Year by quoting that phrase because
the message is so abundantly clear.
The financial markets are analogous
to Calvin's magical world...full of
possibilities. All that remains is for
you to go exploring.
Looking back on 2011, it has been
a year that most of us would probably
like to forget, at least as far as Wall
Street is concerned. However, his-
tory is not the issue here. Rather it is
what you are going to do going for-
ward that counts. And despite what
you may have been told, investing in
stocks has been and still is the great-
est wealth builder of all time.
If you are apprehensive as to your
ability to adroitly invest going for-.
ward, take heart. Successful investing
is not difficult. Common sense, com-
bined with a modicum of patience,
will often produce annual gains of
between 11 and 15 percent. Nonethe-
less, there will be times when random
outside events will take their toll,
even if it is only temporary. That is
the nature of the beast.
"Now, wait a minute," you say.
"Can a mere mortal really be suc-
cessful in today's investment envi-
ronment?" Absolutely--the only real
damage comes from panic-induced
selling. Instead, devote your atten-
tion to an asset allocation program
that incorporates economic factors,
both nationally and globally. With
stock prices still relatively low, your
investment risk remains manage-
able with an ongoing opportunity to
achieve substantial gains going for-
ward.
No, I am not going to be as rash
as to try to predict short-term mar-
ket trends at this point in time or any
point in time for that matter. With-
out the late Madam Marie of Asbury
Park and her crystal ball, that would
be futile, especially when you con-
sider the upcoming potential shift in
the political arena and its economic
consequences. Nonetheless, here are
some tidbits to consider:
To start, my opinion at this time is
that the New Year will be far better in
terms of your investments than 2011.
Currently, my forecast is for real GDP
growth of about 3.2 percent. Given
that Wall Street is considered to be a


resolutions. We can seldom be more than we desire to
become. Our hearts must be firmly planted upon the deeply
devoted purpose of being everything to God He demands
of our lives. Great is the challenge to resolve to serve God.
"So the scribe said to [Jesus], 'Well said, Teacher. You
have spoken the truth, for there is one God, and there is
no other but He. And to love Him with all the heart, with
all the understanding, with all the soul, and with all the
strength, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, is more
than all the whole burnt offerings and sacrifices. '" (Mark
12:32-33).
I am resolved to learn there is but one God (Ephesians
4:6). I am resolved to love God with every bit of my love,
my understanding, my soul, my strength and to show love
by caring for my neighbor. My resolution is built upon the
promise of God's love for me (John 3:16) and the debt I
can never repay. I am resolved to meditate upon the words
of God as they become my speech (Psalm 1). My thoughts
will become His thoughts. The words that I speak will be
seasoned with the salt of His grace (Colossians 4:6).
A new year has been granted along with each new day.
The joy of a new day is not promised as the hope of
tomorrow is a fleeting wisp of dew upon the ground. By
God's grace we live and breathe (Acts 17:25). My
resolution is to live that I may die in Christ where life is
found (Philippians 1:21). My purpose each day is to please
God (I Thessalonians 4:1). "1 am resolved no longer to.
linger: charmed by the worlds delight. Things that are
high, things that are nobler; these have allured my
sight."

('.N


forward looking indicator, then Wall
Street's performance of late would
coincide with the precept that the
economy will likely continue to gain
strength, at least through the first half
of 2012. That will put a dent, albeit
probably a small one, in the unem-
ployment number.
In addition, the Fed has made it
abundantly clear that interest rates
are likely to remain at their current
low levels, probably through all of
2012 and possibly into 2013. Mean-
while, by any calculation inflation
remains benign.
The difficulty is that for the last
several years the consumer has been
carrying the economic load, despite
virtually stagnant income growth.
This was made possible by a con-
tinual increase in the amount of debt
incurred. Recent holiday retail shop-
ping aside, the Great Recession has
forced consumers to deleverage,
meaning reduce debt. This is good
for consumers in the long run but a
deterrent for economic growth in the
short run.
Over the next few weeks, you are
going to be inundated with market
forecasts.of every description. Many
of those forecasts will try to conjure
up a primordial fear of Wall Street,
but offer salvation if you immediately
subscribe to this or purchase that. Do
not fall sway to the passions of the'
market, the tenets of its prognostica-
tors or those selling new improved
versions of snake oil. Instead, con-
sider the words of Wall Street legend
Lucien Hooper.
"What always impresses me," he
once wrote, "is how much better the
relaxed, long-term owners of stock
do. The relaxed investor is usually
better informed and more under-
standing of essential values; he is
more patient,and less emotional."
Happy New Year to all!

Low and slow cooking makes for
a good meal...In my mind's eye I can
see my great-grandmother, Bessie,
slide her big black cast iron dutch
oven to the back of the wo6d cook-
stove away from the heat. Bessie
then leaned down and selected just
the right size piece of split pine wood
and added it to the firebox after she
stirred the coals up just a little. Then
she would reach to the back of the
stove to adjust the damper, slowing
the heat yet again.
Bessie could then leave the pot of
dried lima beans and smoked pork to
simmer as she stepped out of the log
cabin into the frosty morn to build yet
another fire. This fire was built under
the ol' black wash pot to heat the wa-
ter. It is Monday; don't you know
Monday is wash day? As she sur-
veyed the homestead yard surround-
ed by a shoulder high split rail fence
and shaded by a canopy of longleaf
pines, her day had only just begun
as she shaved off slivers of lye soap
into the pot of boiling water. Most of
the children were off at the one-room
school just down the road, and Sam
and the youngest were working in the
field. Bessie wouldn't have to worry
about cooking' dinner (noon meal),
no-sir-ree, because the limas were
simmering away.
That, my friends and fellow na-
tives, is how slow cooking was once
done in the Florida wilderness. Dried
beans are not the only meal that ben-
efits from slow cooking. A pork roast
will fall off the bone if it is cooked
in the low and slow method. This is
simple to do; just season pork well
with salt, pepper, and garlic and place
in a pan. Then add cup of water
and cover with aluminum foil. Turn

the oven to 3250 and bake for 2-3
hours depending on how off the bone
you like it.
Beef stew placed in a covered dish
and baked at 3000 for 3 hours will
turn out great. One of our family fa-
vorites is fried round steak covered in
a watery gravy and baked for hours in
a slow oven. Talk about wonderful. It
truly is, my friend.
Our daughter, Carrie, told me she
was making barbecue sliders (tiny
sandwiches) for a party she attended
last weekend. Her good friend, Annie
Whitehurst, gave her the recipe and
it's so simple I could not help sharing
it with y'all. Since this recipe uses a
slow cooker or crock pot, I consider
it a low and slow recipe.



1 pork roast, about 3 to 4 pounds
1 bottle of your favorite barbecue
sauce
1 slow cooker
Season meat and place it in slow
cooker, aka crock pot. Next, pour half
a bottle of barbecue sauce over meat
and turn on high and cover. Leave
pork cooking for 6 hours. Then shred
the meat using two forks and place it
Son small buns. You may need to add
extra sauce if meat is too dry when
done.,
This is a simple recipe that Carrie
really enjoyed making. She used fro-
zen yeast rolls for her slider buns.
I wonder what Bessie Drummond
Smith would think of a slider? Or for
that matter I wonder what she would
think of a crock pot.

ADDITIONAL HOMESTEAD
EXEMPTION FOR
PERSONS 65 AND OLDER
For 2012, Gilchrist County residents 65 and
older who meet an income limitation may be
eligible for an additional $25,000
homestead exemption on property which
they have the legal and equitable title to and
maintain thereon their permanent
residence. For 2011, the income limitation
was $26,203. In order to be considered, a
sworn statement of adjusted gross income
of household must be filed with the property
appraiser's office during the filing period of
January 1 March 1.


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


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


Additional Homestead Exemption
How does the "double homestead" work?
The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value
of a property used as a primary residence by a Florida resident by
$25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to
$25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000.
For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that
portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable
value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable
value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000).
This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed
value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or
otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp-
tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you, have
the Homestead Exemption already.


AGRICULTURAL

FILINGS
All owners or lessees of agricultural
lands who desire agricultural
classifications for tax purposes on
their property must file an agricultural
application with the Appraiser

"He who dies with the most toys
wins."
No doubt you've seen this bumper
sticker that expresses the theme for
our culture...MORE. Greed is the
supplier and source for this "more"
and a dangerous enemy to our hearts
and relationships. This problem
doesn't just affect those who are rich
or powerful...no doubt every one
of us has been caught up in having
plenty, but wanting more...we are all
at risk.
The definition of greed is an exces-
sive desire for wealth or gain that can
never be satisfied...enough is never
enough. In Ecclesiastes 5:10, the
Bible says: "Whoever loves money
never has money enough; whoever
loves wealth is never satisfied with
his income..." The real issue here is
not money, but the love of it. Simply
put, greed is about not being satisfied
with what we have, and believing
that we will only be satisfied when
we get "more."

By Angie Land
"People who want to get rich fall
into temptation and a trap and into
many foolish and harmful desires that
plunge men into ruin and destruction.
For the love of money is the root of
all kinds of evil. Some people, eager
for money, have wandered from their
faith and pierced themselves with
many griefs." (1 Timothy 6:9-10)
It is interesting that the Bible
calls the love of money the "root"
of all evil. On a tree, we can see the
leaves, bark and branches, but not the
root...it is the hidden part. Greed is
not an action that we can see, but a
motive behind our decisions. This
can make greed hard to detect in
our lives because we can be skilled
in hiding those motives and justify-
ing our actions. However, we cannot
hide them from God...and we should
be grateful for that. Left alone, greed
leaves us miserably unsatisfied and
can cause serious damage in our re-
lationships.
According to Proverbs 15:27, "A
greedy man brings trouble to his fam-
ily..." I'm sure that you could make
your own list of troubles greed brings
to a family, but here are a few I came
up with: becoming a workaholic
that never sees your family, quarrel-
ling with family members over in-
heritance from a loved one, stealing
from an employer, cheating on taxes,
withholding money from someone
in need and neglecting giving to our
church. In making these choices we
may think we will get ahead, but the
truth is we lose so much more than
we gain: relationships, trust, respect,
a good name and God's blessings.
The good news is we don't have to
give in to greed, selfish ambition
or hidden motives to get what we
need. Philippians 4:19 holds the


promise..."and my God will meet all
your needs, according to His glori-
ous riches in Christ Jesus." Ask God
to search your heart for any hidden
motives of greed, to forgive you and
to help you battle this enemy of your
heart and relationship. Trust Him to
do so...because your heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

World War II
Veterans news
Submitted by Dot Halvorsen
World War II Veterans will start
the new year at a meeting on Janu-
ary 12 at 11:30 a.m. at Akins Bar-B-
Q and Grill in Bell. May this year be
prosperous and a healthy year for you
and yours. All World War II Veterans
are welcome to join us. Bring your
spouse, a friend or a fellow veteran
and join in the camaraderie.
We enjoyed our December meeting
at the Island Room in Cedar Key in
December. The food was outstand-
ing and the weather was perfect.
Wayland Wadley was raised in Cedar
Key and talked about the early days
there. He brought a slew of beautiful
pictures. Waylan is also very "crafty"
and displayed a lighted Christmas
tree he made with the use of fishing
line.
May 2012 be an outstanding year
for our country. God bless all of our
Veterans for the price they've paid
for our freedoms and the price they
continue to pay.
Our sympathies go out to the
families of two of our members:
Pauline Barton, age 94, who retired
as a professor of Nursing at UF and


served with the U.S.Army; and Virgil
Sirmons, age 91, U.S. Marine Corps
who is survived by Betty, his wife of
64 years.

Bell Baptist Church visits Tri-County

Nursing Home
Submitted
November and December were busy months for the youth at Bell Baptist Church. On November 19, several
teens, youth, and workers from the Discovery Group met to make lap blankets for patients at Tri-County Nursing
Home. These blankets were delivered on December 17, along with gift bags of candy and cookies. The group
sang for the residents. It was a toss-up as to who enjoyed it the most--the kids or the residents.
On a recent Sunday night all departments combined to present a wonderful thought-provoking program on
what Christmas is really all about.

Cedar Key's Old Florida Celebration of the Arts has been selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Soci-
ety's Top 20 events

Cedar Key's 48th Annual

Fine Arts Show


Mark April 28th and 29th on your
calendar for an excursion to the west-
ern ending point of State Route 24.
That's when you'll have the opportu-
nity to enjoy Cedar Key's 48th An-
nual Old Florida Celebration of the
Arts, which has been selected as one
of the Southeast Tourism Society's
Top 20 events.
Unlike many art festivals and most
craft fairs, this one is judged to en-
sure original artistry and fine crafts-
manship. One hundred and twenty
five artists chosen to participate this
year will compete for over $18,000
in prize money and purchase awards.
The charming and historic Second
Street will become a pedestrian-only
gallery for this weekend event, both
sides lined with booths displaying
art and fine crafts in many different
media oils, acrylics, prints, jewelry,
ceramics, photography, stained glass,
woodwork, sculpture, fiber and tex-
tiles.
A few steps beyond the booths is
City Park, where children will have
sidewalk chalk art, face painting, a
playground and a beach. You can
listen to live music in the park while
lunching on seafood and desserts pre-
pared and sold by local school, civic
and church organizations. You won't
soon forget the Garden Club's home-
made-from-scratch lemonade or the
Lions Club's two-dollar crab cakes.
If you have time for a leisurely


nurse in many venues--office nurse,
private duty, and at Sunland Training
Center in Gainesville. She retired as
a public health nurse for Gilchrist,
Columbia, Hamilton and Suwannee
counties.
She was predeceased by her hus-
band, Wallace H. Townsend.
She is survived by her son, Arthur
S. (Jan) Townsend of Thomasville,
Georgia, and Sedalia, Missouri;
daughter, Paula T. (Dan) Marczyn-
ski of Tampa; four grandchildren,
Matthew (Alice) Townsend, Ethan
Townsend, Tara (Matt) Marczynski
Slusher, and Heather Marczynski;
and three great-grandchildren, Cam-
eron Slusher, Aloria Slusher, and
Raegan Slusher.
Funeral services were held Friday,
December 30, 2011, at the Branford
United Methodist Church with Rev.
Lerbie Alligood officiating. Inter-
ment followed in Townsend Cem-
etery. Visitation was held on Thurs-
day at the funeral home.
In lieu of flowers, donations may
be made to the Wounded Warriors
Project or the American Heart Aso-
ciation.
Daniels Funeral Homes and Cre-
matory, Inc. in Branford was in

visit, consider arriving a few days
early or leaving a few days later. It
will give you the chance to enjoy the
quiet charm of Cedar Key, its water-
ways, its bird life, and its museums,
shops and restaurants. You can walk
or cycle the entire town, photograph
magnificent oaks and historic archi-
tecture, rent a kayak, charter a fishing
trip, cast a line from the town dock,
go birding, watch incredible sunsets,
or stay up late stargazing. During the
week you can join one of eight free
yoga classes. Wander through the lo-
cal art galleries or visit the Cedar Key
Pottery Studio and see where their
signature flat blue glaze originates.
Or bring an easel and meet up with
a group of plein air artists who paint
what they see outdoors.
Cedar Key is made up of a chain of
small barrier islands extending three
miles out into the Gulf of Mexico; the
currently inhabited keys are joined
by short bridges (which also make
popular fishing spots). Thirteen other
islands make up one of the oldest na-
tional wildlife refuges in the country,
providing habitat to vast numbers of
migratory and shore birds. There are
daily boat tours to the island ofAtsena
Otie, which is the site of the original
settlement and home to an Eberhard
Faber pencil factory but was devas-
tated by a hurricane at the end of the
19th century and never rebuilt.
The coastal waters and tidal marsh-


es of the Cedar Keys are a fisherman's
paradise and support an important
clam farming industry. Depending
on the season and the weather, your
catch of the day on inshore waters
may include red drum, black drum or
trout.
The Old Florida Celebration of the
Arts is easy to find. Take State Route
24 (Archer Road) out of Gainesville
and drive southwest to the end of the
road, about 60 miles. You can also
pick up SR 24 at Archer, Bronson or
Otter Creek if you are coming from
other directions. Aviation buffs can
even fly here (www.airnav.com/air-
port/KCDK), as long as they can land
and take off with about 2000 feet of
runway.
For more information about this
annual fine arts show, please contact
event coordinator Mandy Cassiano
at 352-543-5400 or the Chamber of
Commerce at 352-543-5600.

Haven's grief

support services

help children and
teens know they

are not alone
Submitted
Some students have returned to
school after the recent loss of a par-
ent, sibling, or someone else they
were close to.
For children who may need spe-
cial attention this school year, Haven
Hospice Bereavement Counselor
Vonceil Levine, MSW, tells guid-
ance counselors about Haven's grief
support services. The free services
include individual and family coun-
seling as well as Camp Safe Haven,
a day that brings children who have
experienced a loss together to sup-
port each other.
"When guidance counselors are
aware of kids' needs, we're a resource
for them," said Levine. "We're here
to support children through grief ahd
loss."
Richard Rowell, a Gainesville fa-
ther of two, learned about Haven's
grief support services at the hospital
the day his wife died.
"I had no idea Haven Hospice
would be able to help me with this,"
said Rowell, who lost Jill after a 10-
month battle with leukemia. "I wasn't
aware of the support services Haven
provides."

Jill had been in remission, but de-
veloped an infection and died unex-
pectedly, which left Rowell wonder-
ing how to tell his seven-year-old
daughter Carlie and two-year-old
son Evan. Carlie knew her mother
was sick, but her parents had done all
they could to keep things as normal
as possible at home and at school.
"For Carlie, her Mommy's death
was pretty shocking," Rowell said. "I
wondered what to do next." Levine
advised him how to tell Carlie what
was wrong with Mommy and what
had happened.
At Levine's suggestion, Ro;vell
enrolled Carlie in the next session of
Camp Safe Haven for 6 12 year-
olds. Carlie met other children who
had lost a parent, including a girl her
age whose father had died.
"Our camps give children the peer
support they need," Levine said.
"They also help families to know that
it's okay to grieve."
"The four parents who attended
were all close in age and we had all
lost our spouses," Rowell said. "We
all had kids around the same age, so it
was a nice connection to make."
"One of my concerns about tak-
ing Carlie to this camp was that she's

"It's been good for me to meet with

Local citizens lined up to sell pecans on Tuesday afternoon at Billy Smith's Watermelons.


Now and Ti efit


By Carrie A. Mizell


Forget watermelons, it's much too
cold for the ripe, juicy goodness they
provide!
This time of year, it's pecans caus-
ing quite a stir at Billy Smith's water-
melon shed on State Road 47.
For the last two months, citizens of
Gilchrist County have waited in line
to sell pecans they have picked up to
local buyer, Carver Hutchinson.
A Levy County resident, Mr.
Hutchinson pays $1.25 per pound for
pecans, which he buys on Tuesdays,
Thursday and Saturdays from 1 p.m.
to 5 p.m.
With the, economy in its cur-
rent dreadful state, and the fact that
there were no pecans last year, Mr.
Hutchinson said on Tuesday that he
has seen more people lining up to sell
pecans this year than ever before.
He couldn't say just how many pe-
cans he has bought this year, but he
did say that once they are trucked to
Valdosta, Georgia, half of the pecans
will be shipped to China.
A pecan buyer since 1985, Mr.
Hutchinson said, "This year we've
seen an overabundance of pecans and
people selling them."
I enjoyed laughing with Mr.
Hutchinsdn over the extreme lengths
people will go to gather pecans to
sell.
Not their own pecans, mind you,
but the ones they pick up from be-
hind the Journal office and claim as
their own.
I told Mr. Hutchinson I honestly
thought several scavengers were so
overzealous that they would fight a
squirrel for our pecans.
Thinking back on the last two
months, I'm not sure which inci-
dent was the craziest, but it might
have been the man and woman who
worked together to take our nuts.
Envision this, he climbs the tree
and shakes the limbs, while she runs
around picking up our pecans. Now
that's teamwork.
Possibly it was the man who came
in the front door and asked my dad to
intercede on his behalf. Apparently,
while he was outside picking up our
pecans another man came along to
pick up pecans and supposedly stole
some out of his bucket. The man was
ticked and went so far as to tell dad,
"That man stole my pecans."
God bless dad for not saying, "No
sir, you both stole my pecans."
This year, more than ever before,
I have been amazed at the audac-
ity of people as they disregarded our
repeated wishes to please leave the
property and stop picking up our pe-
cans.
It's a shame. I could understand if
they were starving and one buttery
pecan was going to keep them go-
ing one more day, but I don't think
a Trenton city commissioner who
would steal pecans is prompted by
the threat of starvation.


Pecans go from bags to large boxes before theytare loaded onto semi trailers and hauled to Georgia.
