man dies in


head-on crash


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Cross City driver traveling
the wrong way on US 19 caused a
head-on collision that killed an el-
derly Fanning Springs man.
Thomas Bailey, 67, of Fanning
Springs, was on his way to work as
the manager of Chiefland Golf and

a vehicle traveling north in the
southbound lanes of US 19.
The head-on collision occurred

According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, Keith Shane Bush, 40,
of Cross City, was traveling north

Buick Roadmaster.
"Bush was driving on the wrong
side of the roadway in the wrong
direction against oncoming traffic,"
explained Trooper C.K. Harris of
the Florida Highway Patrol.
After the initial collision, Bush's
vehicle caught fire and began to
bur. The driver was pulled from
the fire and was transported to
Shards Hospital with serious inju-
ries.
A' blood alcohol test was per-
formed and charges are pending as
the investigation continues.

I can't tell you if reelected that ev-

one, but I can promise you that what-
ever decision I make I have always
asked Gd for His help and blessing
and I will continue to pray.
In closing I want to say that I have
tried to be everything I feel a county
commissioner should be. That is to
be a servant of the people, not to tell
them they can't do that but to help
them accomplish their goal. I sup-
port our seniors and students. I make
myself available to the public not
just every 7 years but all the time.
I stand on my record for the past 7
years. I am the same person the citi-
zens elected 7 years ago. This job
had not changed me. I still rely on
common sense and prayer.
If you call me I will help if anyway
possible. Thank you for your consid-

Bunkley is District Teacher of the Year


Linda Perry is


By Carrie A. Mizell
A high school student does not
have to be the best reader to excel in
Brandy Bunkley's class at Bell High
School; they just have to try hard.
Bunkley's talent as a high school
reading teacher was acknowledged
on Monday when she was named
District Teacher of the Year.
"Brandy is the teacher that 20 years
from now a kid will say, 'I had Mrs.
Bunkley and she's the reason I have
this job today,'" said Lisa Barry, as-
sistant principal at Bell High School.
Bunkley was named District
Teacher of the Year at the Trenton
Rotary Club meeting earlier this
week, after being selected Bell High
School's Teacher of the Year. Bunk-
ley was selected as District Teacher
of the Year after being interviewed by
a panel of out-of-county judges, who
also interviewed the teachers of the
year from the other three schools in
the county. Bell Elementary School
was represented by Teacher of the
Year Sandra Carawan, who is a 4th
grade teacher at BES. According to
Linda Gartin, assistant principal at
BES, Carawan wears many different
hats at the school, including being the
safety patrol sponsor and coordinator
of the 21st Century program.
"She does not sleep!" Gartin said.
"My daughter says she's the greatest
math teacher ever."
Trenton Elementary School was
represented by Teacher of the Year
Krista Perryman. According to TES
Principal Jay Jolicoeur, Perryman is
not only a talented teacher, but she is

#10 high


school in


Florida
Out of 65 middle-high schools in
the state, Bell Middle High School
was ranked number 10 by the Florida
Department of Education on Mon-
day.
"We have a tremendous staff at
Bell High School, and on the district
level, as well as great parents," said
Rick Reed, Bell High School princi-
pal.
Trenton Middle-High School
ranked 15th in the state. The high
school rankings were determined
based on FCAT scores, college readi-
ness factors, graduation rate and par-
ticipation in dual enrollment. Super-
intendent Don Thomas was pleased
to learn that Bell and Trenton middle-
high schools were ranked high. The
superintendent, who earlier said he
would not seek re-election in 2012,
credits school district employees for
the Gilchrist County School District's
continued success. As Thomas point-
ed out, the #1 middle-high school in
the state was in Sarasota. The school
has a free and reduced lunch rate of
11 percent, whereas Bell's free and
reduced lunch rate is 62 percent.


Dear citizens of Gilchrist County:
My name is Leonard Knuckles and
I am pleased to announce my candi-
dacy for Sheriff. I am 54 years old
and have been married to my loving
wife Linda Overstreet Knuckles for
over 29 yeais. We have been blessed
with two wonderful daughters. Lind-
say (Bradley) Stubblefield is a regis-
tered nurse at Shands Hospital. Le-
andra attends Saint Leo University
and will graduate in May 2012 with
a teaching degree. I have lived and
worked in Gilchrist County all my
life and am a 1976 graduate of Tren-
ton High School.
I began my career at Lancaster
Correctional Institution in 1977,
serving over 30 years then retiring in
2008. While employed at Lancaster
I completed the Law Enforcement
Academy in 1985 at Lake City Com-
munity College. I began working as
a part-time Deputy Sheriff with the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office in
1985 and have served the citizens of
Gilchrist County under our different
sheriffs. I am currently serving as
the Administrative Lieutenant. This
experience has allowed me to see the
enormous responsibility and many
challenges that come with being the
sheriff. It has also enabled me to de-
velop my own vision, where I would
like to take the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office in the future.
It is important for the next sheriff
to be an experienced deputy. Also,


Leonard Knuckles


he needs to be someone with a fresh
perspective of the office,.its employ-
ees, and the vital role it exemplifies
in the community. As your Sheriff,
I will take a strong and tough stand
against crime in the community, in-
cluding a concentrated focus on the
illegal drug epidemic plaguing our
county and state, as well as the prop-
erty crimes that always accompany
illicit drug use. I will be fair, under-
standing, dedicated, and honest. I
will always keep an open door policy
to the citizens of the county. As your
Sheriff, I am confident that together
we can accomplish these things. I
will assure that every member of the
GCSO will work hard to exceed your
expectations.


In the next several months, I plan
to travel across the county to as many
homes as possible. I will personally
listen to your concerns and share my
vision of where the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office should go from here.
I respectfully ask you for your sup-
port in the upcoming election and
thank you in advance for your con-
sideration.
Please feel free to contact me with
your questions or concerns via web-
site at LeonardKnucklesforSheriff.

Commission approves

CR 340 re-striping


By John M. Ayers
SThe Gilchrist County Commission
approved re-striping of CR 340 from
the Rock Bluff Bridge spanning the
Suwannee River between Gilchrist
and Dixie counties east to the Ala-
chua County line.
Gilchrist County Transportation
Superintendent Billy Cannon report-
ed a proposal for sealed bids summa-
ry for centerline stripping of CR 340
was opened in early January. He ex-
plained Lee Mills of Mills Engineer-
ing has reviewed the bids and can go
over them with the Commission.
Mills told the board that the bid
was written so the county road was
split into three sections. Section One:
from Dixie County east to US high-
way 129, a length of 4.4 miles. Sec-
tion Two: from US 129 east to SR
47, a length of 11.2 miles. Section
Three: from SR 47 east to the Ala-
chua county line, a distance of 10.3
miles for a total center line painting
of 25.9 miles.
Mills explained and presented a
bid review form, which identified the
three bids received. The bids were
received from Jenkins Painting, Inc.,
Oglesby Construction, Inc., and As-
phalt Sealing & Striping Co., Inc.
The bids were presented for each
section-from each contractor for both
the solid and the skip portions of the
highway. Jenkins total bid submitted
was $9,297.50. Oglesby Constriction
total bid was $18,615.00 and the As-
phalt Sealing & Striping Co submit-
ted a bid of $53,515.52.
The Commission discussed the
bids. Commissioner D. Ray Harri-
son, Jr. asked "Mills why there was


such a vast difference in the three
bids. The board learned that two of
the three bids were from out of the
area contractors. Jenkins Painting,
Inc. was reported to be located in the
Chiefland area. "You can't see the
center line of the highway currently
at night," Cannon explained to the
Commission.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion to approve the bid of
$9,297.50 from Jenkins Painting, Inc.
and Commissioner Harrison gave a
second in support of the motion. The
board approved of the action by a 5-0
vote. The funds to pay for this project
were not in budget, but were agreed
to be taken from General Revenue
Reserve.
Cannon reported to the Commis-
sion that he received a request to
reduce the speed limit on CR 307A
around the Senior Citizens Center
west of Trenton. He reported the cur-
rent speed limit on this road is 55
miles per hour. The complaint report-
ed the traffic traveling east on this
paved highway is often going so fast
that when vehicles enter the highway
from the Senior Citizens Center, there
is often a problem, Cannon explained
to the Commission.
The discussion involved whether
the speed limit needs to be reduced
on the entire length of the highway,
or just to the Senior Citizens Cen-
ter.' Commissioner Harrison made
a motion to have the County Attor-
ney draft an ordinance to reduce the
speed limit to 45 miles.per hour from
CR 307 east to US 129 in Trenton.
The board approved the motion by a
5-0 vote.

Now aAtd 7the
By Carrie A. Mizell


By the time you are settling down
to read the newspaper on Thursday
evening, I will be welcoming ladies
into my home for the first meeting of
a newly formed homemakers club.
The old adage, the older you get,
the more you act like your mother
and grandmother, rings true for me.
You see, my grandmother Doris
Beauchamp has been a member of
the Curryville Homemakers Club in
Levy County for 55 years.
It was while flipping through a
1971 cookbook compiled by the
Levy County Homemakers Clubs
that I started thinking...Heaven help
us all, I might just want to be a home-
maker!
I love the thought of gathering with
a group of like-minded women, mar-
ried or single, who share a love for
home and family.


Meetings will be once a month and
include a short program or demon-
stration, a show and tell time and a
snack.
Over the years, I'm sure my gran-
ny's group of homemakers have talk-
ed about everything from disciplin-
ing small children to arthritis!
I think most women, whether they
work or stay home, can honestly say
they wish they were Susie Home-
maker in some form or another.
Just Southern columnist Cindy Jo
Ayers, who just so happens to be my
momma, will stop in and show us all
how to make old fashioned biscuits
from scratch on Thursday evening.
The flour will surely be flying as
the girls gather for a time of fellow-
ship. I can't speak for the others, but
I know my husband and children will
be running for cover!

Personality of the Month


By Geneva Cornwell
Availability focuses on others'
needs. A person who is available
finds ways to help and. not to hide,
is ready when the call comes to as-
sist, and is glad to serve. Availability
does not sit around dormant, waiting
for something to happen. Availability
is the ability to add strength or worth
to another person. It is the quality of
one who stands ready to contribute
his or her own strength and talent to
those who need it. Just as a single- ,
strand cord is good, and a two-strand
cord is stronger, a three-strand cord
is even harder to break. Each strand
benefits from the addition of another.
The one who receives the service busy the

I ot


Regarding Spraying
on Waters Lake Road

I would like to take this opportuni-
ty to provide the correct facts regard-
ing my actions concerning the spray-
ing on Waters Lake Road. Several
articles have been published without
checking the facts apparently due to
reliance on individuals making false
allegations. I was never contacted by
anyone at the Journal for confirma-
tion or denial of any of the accusa-
tions put forward in print.
Your article on January 12th titled
"County Commission and SRWMD
work to stop spraying on Waters Lake
Road" again incorrectly states that the
water management district received a
complaint about my spraying irriga-
tion water on the road. Kevin Wright
at the SRWMD told my wife that
there was no complaint on file with
the water management district about
my irrigation pivot. A response to a
written request under the Sunshine
Law confirmed that none existed. If
your reporter has evidence of a com-
plaint I would like the opportunity to
see it and address it.
For many years now, I have made a
concerted effort to prevent water from
spraying on the road. I know that the
end gun "auto shut off' mechanism
can be disrupted by power outages or
surges, so I currently manually watch
and maintain the progress of the pivot
each time I run it to be sure water does
not get on the roadway. If the pivot
is run at night, it is set at a 10% crawl
away from the road. At this speed,
it will not travel far enough to spray
on the road during the night. When
I am applying manure to my fields I
closely supervise the operation and I
NEVER allow it to spray on the road.
This is also true when temperatures
are freezing (I either don't run the
pivot or I manually prevent water
from falling on the road.).
Waters Lake Road exists due to
the fact that I gifted the county 30-40
feet of additional land so they would
have enough right-of-way to build a
proper road. I asked the commission-
ers at that time to use the money they
had budgeted for the land purchase to
pave the road instead. Initially, due
to the budget constraints, the county
planned on buying the land and wid-
ening the road with lime rock. My
gift allowed the county to construct
a paved road wide enough to accom-
modate a school bus. In exchange, I
asked that they maintain it properly
(which they finally did a few months
ago), replant my trees that were cut
down (they never did) and recon-
struct my fence (which they did with
substandard supplies). Why would
I contribute to the deterioration of a
road I wanted and donated? Appar-
ently, the old saying "no good deed
goes unpunished" remains true. It
is a sad day when a generous good
neighbor and asset to the county is li-
beled by those who have benefited by
his generosity.
Rod Tompkins
Misty Farmns


and Hamilton were represented on
some level.
At the end of the meeting, the new
Executive Director of St. Johns River
Water District (SJRWD) asked to
speak. Hans G. Tanzler III suggested
we spend our money on solutions in-
stead of water. We already know the
solution is for (SJRWD) to stop is-
suing permits that affect other water
districts negatively. Has SJRWD ex-
hausted all their other options since
they do .border the St. Johns River
and the Atlantic Ocean? So after
issuing permits to JEA to pump up
to 155 million gallons per day and
in the process draining the rivers,
springs, lakes, and wells to historic
lows from another water district, now
the SJRWD wants to make nice. He
informed us that they are working
on better communications with the
adjoining water districts in the fu-
ture. Since Hanz Tanzler is a career
lawyer, he may just be giving us the
advice and warning that they left no
doors open to appeal any permits in
the past.
SJRWD needs to find their own so-
lutions, to the lack of resources avail-
able within their district to support
the permits they have issued.

A call to reach out
and help

Dear Editor,
Our long-time friend and fellow re-
altor, Owen Baynard, is desperately
in need of blood as he battles for his
life in the intensive care unit of North
Florida Regional Hospital in Gaines-
ville.
If anyone would like to help him,
you can donate blood locally at the
Life South Community Blood Center
in Chiefland. They are located at 2202
North Young Blvd., Suite 607, along
U.S. 19 at the Winn-Dixie Shopping
Center. Hours of operation are Tues-
day to Saturday, with evening hours
for working folks. For more infor-
mation, you can call their office at
352-490-7410. The two nurse techs,
Deana and Jacqueline, who took care
of us during our visit this week, were
very warm, friendly, knowledgeable
and kind. What more could you ask
for a first-timer or a veteran donor?
Please take the time to, go and give
them Owen's name when initially
checking in so the donation can be
recorded as supporting Owen. Re-
gardless of your particular blood
type, they will take care of the rest.
You can even get a free t-shirt, not to
mention the intrinsic value of helping
a special person in need in our com-
munity.
Again, please step up and show
that you care. On behalf of all of
Owen's many family and friends, we
thank you in advance for your sup-
port. You could be saving a life with
your donation.

The Angel Of The Lord Is On Guard
(Kent Heaton)


Those early movies of Johnny Weissmuller as Tarzan in
the wilds of Africa would give any child a fright to be in
the dark. Imagine camping in the middle of the dark
jungle with the roar of lions all about. Fear would hold
anyone captive who did not keep a vigilant eye for danger.
Sleep was fretful without the confidence of security and
safety. Life is more fearful than the imagined distress of a
young boy. There is a greater enemy that stalks about our
lives seeking to devour and destroy us. The apostle Peter
knew what it was like to face this beast. "Therefore
humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that
He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon
Him, for He cares for you. Be sober; be vigilant; because
your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion,
seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in
the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are
experienced by your brotherhood in the world. But may
the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory
by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect,
establish, strengthen, and settle you" (1 Peter 5:6-10).
The devil is a very powerful foe and has destroyed
millions of lives. He is Hell-bound and will take as many
of God's creation with him as he can. His wiles are full of
deceit and the manner of his seduction is overpowering.
Every man should fear him. Yet, there is an answer to this
seemingly invincible braggart. In Psalms the poet David
speaks of those will trust in the Lord and declares, "The
angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear
Him, and delivers them" (Psalm 34:7).
Consider the imagery for a moment. The child of God is
protected all around by the angel of the Lord. This is the


same one who withstood Balaam in Numbers 22; gave
hope to Gideon (Judges 6); brought judgment on Jerusalem
(2 Samuel 24) and performed untold works for Jehovah
God in blessing His people: Hagar Genesis 16; Manoah -
Judges 13; Joseph Matthew 1.
Why should the child of God fear the devil when the
angel of the Lord is on guard? If an angel of the Lord can
destroy 185,000 soldiers in one night, (2 Kings 19:35) why
should I fear a lion whose sentence of death has been
measured fully by the blood of Christ? "What then shall
we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be
against us" (Romans 8:31)? "You are of God, little
children, and have overcome them, because He who is in
you is greater than he who is in the world" (1 John 4:4).
David reminds us in Psalm 34 the Lord is watching out
for us (v15) and will not let the devil have sway over us
(vl6-17). "Many are the afflictions of the righteous but the
Lord delivers him out of them all. He guards all his bones;
not one of them is broken" (vvl9-20). What have we to
fear? When the angel of the Lord camps around our lives
there is nothing that can separate us from the "love of God
which is in Christ Jesus our Lord" (Romans 8:39).
The angel of the Lord empowers us to resist the devil
(James 4:7) because he is on guard. There is no power that
Satan has that will break the bonds of protection given by
God to His people. United with the power of the Almighty
the devil is nothing more than a whimpering, toothless lion
cub. As the armor of God (Ephcsians 6) protects us and
guides our lives so the angel of the Iord will protect us.
Raise the banner of faith high with the knowledge that the
victory is ours (I Corinthians 15:50-58)!

Last weekend, I was lucky enough
to spend several days on Tybee Is-
land at a quilting retreat. My long
time quilting friend, Beth Davis and
I headed north to Savannah to spend
a couple days sewing like crazy try-
ing to finish a quilt top in two days;
needless to say it did not happen.
Also needless to say John was all too
happy to stay home and work on our
spring garden plot.
As usual when visiting coastal
Georgia we ate at several good res-
taurants. The weather was wonderful
and the afternoon we spent in Savan-
nah was almost tourist free. Believe
it or not we did very little shopping.
We did stop in at the Savannah Tea
Room and I picked up a couple bags
of teas. We also stopped in at a store
called Fabrika which sold fabric and
notions. This little shop catered to the
students at SCAD (Savannah College
of Art and Design). It was a very in-
teresting place, lots of big scissors for
cutting their beautiful fabrics and in-
teresting books on courtier design as
well as spools of wonderful ribbon.
As soon as our daughter, Carrie,
heard about our trip she suggested
we go The Olde Pink House Restau-
rant. So, Beth and I went to Carrie's
favorite special occasion restaurant
for supper the first night. Needless to
say the food was wonderful and the
service exceptional. Man, do those
waiters know how to wait on a table.
Beth and I had a BLT salad. This
was a simply wonderful salad con-
sisting of a mound of mixed spring
greens with two slices of sweet ba-
con crossed over the top. Next came
a slice of fried green tomato and then
the whole salad was dribbled with
black pepper thyme buttermilk dress-
ing.
The salad was followed by their
special for the evening which was
shrimp and grits. But, not just any
grits; our server told us how to rec-
reate the grits portion of the meal.
He said the restaurant used Anson
Mill Stone Ground Grits which had
been cooked for a long time and then
mixed with cheese and eggs and then
spread in a pan. Then the inch thick
layer of grits was left to cool and firm
up in the fridge. Then the cold grits
were cut into triangles, dipped in a
egg wash and dusted in flour. Finally
the grits cakes were finished by deep
frying them. This left a cake that was
crispy on the outside while hot and
creamy on the inside. The entire dish
was wonderful and so rich.
If all that was not enough to im-
press you The Olde Pink house has
a history that nearly took my breath


away. Those who enjoy time in Sa-
vannah usually come away with a
little knowledge of their history. Sa-
vannah was formed to ward off the
attacks from the Spanish. in St. Au-
gustine who came north from time
to time to attack the colony in South
Carolina. Yep, we are talking way
back in colonial times.
The Olde Pink House was built in
1771 by James Habersham who re-
ceived the property from a land grant
from England. Habersham lived in
the house for nearly 30 years. Haber-
sham was a wealthy planter who
helped secure the independence of
the 13 colonies from England. Many
secret meetings were held in his home
before and during the Revolutionary
War.
The mansion then became the first
bank in Georgia, when it housed The
Planters Bank in 1811. The history
of this building is remarkable even
before the War Between the States,
aka Civil War. During that war one of
Sherman's generals, a General York,
set up his headquarters in the build-
ing.
After our meal the waiter encour-
aged us to walk though the many
rooms (now dining rooms) of the
mansion.
Speaking of food while on Tybee
Island we ate at another restaurant
that was really good. It was located
in a little shopping center and we
probably would not have gone there,
except one of the ladies in our group
who has a summer house on Tybee
recommended it. I had a wonder-
ful bowl of Seafood Bisque made of
shrimp, lobster and crab meat sim-
mered in seafood broth with heavy
cream and a tiny splash of brandy.
The bisque was just as wonderful as
it sounds.
We really did a lot of sewing even
though it sounds like all we did was
eat. What can I say, Savannah and
Tybee are just eating towns.
The beach on Tybee was beautiful
and nearly deserted this time of year.
Its always fun to spend a weekend
away, be it sewing or just eating the
local food and enjoying watching the
tide roll in at the beach. A good time
was had by all, on Tybee time.

2 pounds unpeeled, large fresh

4 tablespoons butter
2 green onions, sliced
4 large garlic cloves, minced
Zest or grated peel of one lemon
Juice of one-half lemon
Salt and pepper to taste

Peel and de-vein the shrimp. Melt

medium heat. Add shrimp and cook
and stir until the shrimp turn pink and
are done. Add parsley. Serve over hot
cooked noodles.
Cooking Tip: When using fresh
parsley it is good to wash it well. I
usually take the parsley sprigs apart
and let them soak in a bowl of cool
water for a few minutes then wash
them well under running water to
remove dirt. It always surprises me
how much dirt can be washed out
of parsley. Parsley can be stored for
several days by trimming the ends of
the parsley and placing it in a water-
filled jar and left on the counter. If
you need to keep it longer, place jar
in fridge.

Will Automatically Be Renewed
For 2012

It is no longer necessary to sign and

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

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 (65,000-25,00 5,000). Prior to new law, the taxable
value would have been $40,000 (65.000-25,000).
This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed
value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or
otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp-
tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you, have
the Homestead Exemption already.


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


HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION IS NOT
TRANSFERABLE -- A NEW
APPLICATION MUST BE FILED FOR
ANY CHANGES
Information ill he required from all persons appl ing for exemptions to
determine their residency status. If Ilusband or \ife is filing for one or
both. residency documentation will be required for both.
We are at your service and will be most happy
to assist you in any way.
Our office is located in the Gilchrist County Courthouse.

Did you hear about the man
whose wife wanted him to send
away his oldest son, born of a pre-
'viouq relationship, and leave him
without any inheritance... or what
about the case of sibling rivalry so
severe that a brother was kidnapped
and left for dead? While these
cases could easily be heard on the
morning news...they actually are
recorded in Genesis, the Biblical
book of beginnings...
While every generation thinks
that its struggles are unique, a quick
browse through the scriptures tells
another story. Interestingly enough,
the two examples given here have
something in common that contin-
ues to be a struggle in today's cul-
ture... Abraham, Sarah, and Ishma-
el, and Joseph and his brothers both
belonged to blended families.
Webster's dictionary.defines the
word "blend" as: "to combine init6
an integrated whole...to produce a
harmonious effect." This sounds,
easy enough, if you are following a
favorite recipe, but for those work-
ing toward "blending" a family, the
task is anything but simple...and
rarely is the result instantly harmo-
nious!
The "insider/outsider" dynamic
is a unique characteristic in step-
families. The "insiders" are those
biologically related. while obvi-
ously the "outsiders" are those that
are not. This invisible line drawn
between the two in a stepfamily
home becomes a fault line under
stress...the division will almost
always come down to this factor.
Understanding that this is a normal
phenomenon helps stepfamilies
then take the next steps in conflict
resolution instead of getting side-
tracked by this issue.
Loyalty issues are also distinct
for stepfamilies...loyalty to chil-
dren over the new spouse, as well
as a child's loyalty to the absent
parent. Children are naturally torn
between their parents, even if no
obvious hostility exists, and loyalty
to the biological parent who is not
in the home is often disguised as re-
sistance to a stepparent's authority.
If these issues are ignored. they will
erode the marriage relationship.

'Submitted
: The Dixie Echoes are coming to
Chiefland, Florida. This legendary
quartet will be appearing on Thurs-
day, February 9 at 7 p.m. at the First
United Methodist Church.
SFor nearly 50 years, the Dixie
Echoes have been delivering the
good news of the Gospel through
their spiritually uplifting musical
ministry. Since their formation in
1960, the Dixie Echoes have enjoyed
much success and are probably best
remembered for their performances
on the Gospel Singing Jubilee, which
aired in the late 60's and early 70's.
The quartet consists of long-time
lead vocalist Randy Shelnut, baritone
Randy Shelnut, Jr., tenor Michael
Helwig, and bass vocalist Mike Jen-
nings. The quartet is accompanied
by award winning piantist Stewart
Varnado. Although considered to be


which;is critical to the success of
the family as a whole.
Ron Deal, founder of the Suc-
cessful Stepfamily Ministry, en-
courages stepfamilies to "cook" a.
stepfamily with.the idea of a crock-
pot, not a microwave. Crock-pots
work with two primary elements:
time andlow heat. One study sug-
gests that it takes an average of
seven years for a blended family.
to integrate successfully. When
it comes to building a relation-
ship with stepchildren, stepparents
should let the child set the pace for
the relationship in terms of affec-
tion and authority asserted by. the
stepparent. Trying to rush'or force
this relationship will typically not
bring desired results.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 Ameri-
cans are currently in a step-rela-
tionship...in fact 42 percent of all
adults in America are in:a step-
relationship of some kind. To be
sure. blended families have an
additional measure of stress and
problems that are unique to. each
family situation, but just as He
did for the families of Abraham
and Joseph, God has a plan and a..
purpose for our lives and our fami-
lies...because eery heart matters!

Deal's ministry for stepfamilies

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, January 26, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Our days are really
busy and we had another load of quilt
bboks brought in. Our Northern
visitors are really here and we enjoy
them being with us.
Our prayers are with Ann Hardee
and Peggy Williams who are now
recovering at home from their recent
hospital stay. Hope to see 'you soon.
We all thank our Lord for each day of
good health.
Six quilters went to Tampa on
Wednesday to help with the quilts
entered in the State Fair. It was a fun
day but we have at least 150 quilts to
judge and that's not easy. When we
go down on the bus, we will learn the
results.


The bus to the State Fair on Tues-
day, February 14, still has a few
seats available. The tickets are $24
and that includes entrance to the
Fair. The bus leaves Chiefland at 7
a.m. and Williston at 7:30 a.m. Call
Winnelle Home at 352-493-2801 for
more details.
Thursday lunch was a feast. We
had chicken soup, mustard and col-
lards, baked beans, noodles and beef,
peas, macaroni and vegetable, tossed
salad, macaroni salad, vegetable
stew, bean casserole, pears, coconut
cake and so much more.

The week of January 22-28, 2012,
was proclaimed as Hazardous Mate-
rials Awareness Week by the North
Central Florida Regional Planning
Council at their meeting on January
26, 2012. The Council, through the
North Central Florida Local Emer-
gency Planning Committee, has the
responsibility of increasing the safety
of our communities from chemical re-
leases. Public outreach and education
are important to increasing chemical
safety in our communities. One goal
of Hazardous Materials Awareness
Week is to notify the public that fa-
cilities, first responders and emergen-
cy management are working together
to ensure that our communities are
as prepared as possible for both ac-
cidental and deliberate releases of
hazardous materials. A second goal
is to encourage local governments to
take advantage of free hazardous ma-
terials training classes offered by the
North Central Florida Local Emer-
gency Planning Committee.
The Council, whose members are
local elected officials and guberna-
torial appointees, administers a va-
riety of state and federal programs
for North Central Florida including
Alachua, Bradford, Columbia, Di-
xie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Madison, Suwannee, Taylor' and
Union Counties. Programs include
development of the Strategic Region-
al Policy Plan, technical assistance
to local governments in develop-


ment of their comprehensive plans,
land development regulations and
grant management, administration
of developments of regional impact,
local mitigation strategies, hazard-
ous materials, homeland security,
housing assistance and economic de-
velopment programs. In addition,
the Council staffs the Metropolitan
Transportation Planning Organiza-


tion for the Gainesville Urbanized
Area, the North Central Florida Lo-
cal Emergency Planning Committee,
the North Central Florida Regional
Hazardous Materials Response Team
and The Original Florida Tourism
Task Force.
The Councils' office are located in
Gainesville. More information about

being in the red to making'a profit,
explained BillieJo Bible, personnel
specialist in human resources for the
Gilchrist County School District.
"It is an honor to work in this school
district," Perry said, while accepting
a plaque and $250 check from V & I
Maintenance Corp. "I live in another
district, so I can truly say it's a plea-
sure to work here."
Perry was chosen District Em-
ployee of the Year from a group of
dedicated Employees of the Year
representing area schools and the
district office. Employee of the Year
Lori Summers represented Trenton
Elementary School.
"If I could use just one word to de-
scribe Lori, it would be Amazing!"


said Jay Jolicoeur, principal of Tren-
ton Elementary School. "She is a per-
fectionist and always the first one to
volunteer. I don't know what I would
do without her."
Trenton High School was rep-
resented by Employee of the Year
John Rowe, Jr., who has coached the
girls' basketball team for sevenyears.
Rowe works in the ISS room and cov-
ers middle school lunchroom duty.
SGuidance Clerk Pam Powell is not
only a welcoming face in Bell High
School's front office; she is also the
school's Employee of the Year. Ac-
cording to Lisa Barry, assistant prin-
cipal at BHS, Powell sincerely likes
everyone who comes in the door and
has a special way of welcoming new


students and calming upset parents.
She is the junior class sponsor and
also works middle school lunch duty.
Bell Elementary School was rep-
resented by Employee of the Year
Deanna Fowler. She runs the comput-
er lab, oversees Accelerated Reader
and always has a good attitude, ex-
plained Linda Gartin, assistant prin-
cipal at BES.
Superintendent Don Thomas
thanked the Trenton Rotary Club for
once again sponsoring the District
Teacher of the Year and District Em-
ployee of the Year awards. Thomas
praised the Gilchrist County School
District employees, saying they are
the reason the school district has been
named fifth in the state of Florida.


THS Beta Club goes to convention


Submitted
The Trenton High School Beta Club is pleased to report its attendance at the 70th Annual State Beta Convention,
which was held January 15-17, 2012.
Twenty-four club members, three chaperones, and the club sponsor traveled to Orlando for three packed days of
scholastic, artistic and talent competitions, along with leadership training, plus fellowship and networking with other
Betas from all over the state.
The competition is stiff at the state level, so it is with great pride that the THS Betas announce to the community
the 3rd place award received for their group talent entry "Betas Just Dance" which was the very first talent entry THS
has ever put up for the state convention.

Bell High-Q

By Elli Carranza
On Thursday, January 26th, the
Bell High-Q teams hosted the Re-
gional High-Q Conference Tourna-
ment at Spring Ridge First Church of
God. Unfortunately, both the JV and
Varsity teams lost in the first round.
The JV team lost to Bartram Trail
and the Varsity team lost to Williston
High School.
In the Junior Varsity finals, Van-
guard competed against Bradford
County. Vanguard dominated most of
the match except for the third round.
Bradford began to catch up to Van-
guard and was within 30 points of
tying the match. However, they were
unable to and lost to Vanguard 239-
211.
For the Varsity finals, Williston
competed against Bartram Trail.
Williston put up a good fight, but it
wasn't enough to surpass Bartram.
They held the lead the whole match
and won the final round. Bartram
Trail took home the title of Varsity
Champion.
Bell High-Q would like to thank all
parents, teachers, and faculty of Bell
High School for their support during
the season and off-season. They have
had an awesome year and it would
not have been possible without those
who helped. Until next year!


Lady Bulldogs

honor seniors
By Don Bailey
The Bell Lady Bulldogs had a light
schedule last week. Two games were
scheduled, but the game with Chief-
land on Tuesday night was cancelled.
Bell hosted the Dixie County Lady
Bears on Friday night, which was
also Seniors' Night for this season.
The varsity team is made up of seven
seniors (Samantha Bruce, Mariah
Germaine, Reilee Moore, Jessie
Sanders, Preslee Sanders, Chelsea
Smith, and Hannah Taylor) and one
junior (Olivia Bailey). However,
some of the Junior Varsity team were
allowed to suit up for that game since
no JV game was scheduled. Five of
the seven seniors started the game,
but all seven saw a lot of action. The
rest of the bench also took their turn
on the court. It was an easy win, with
the score at half-time 38 to 9 (Bell)
and a final score of 51 to 17 (Bell).
Scoring for the Lady Bulldogs in-
cluded: Bruce, 11, Smith, 8, Moore,
7, Germaine, 5, Taylor, 5, J. Sanders,
5, P Sanders, 2, and Bailey, 2. The JV
players also contributed a collective
total of 6 points. Rebound leader was
P. Sanders with 9. Bruce and Moore
led in assists with 4 each. No player
from Dixie County had double fig-
ures, with the leading scorer (Hollis)
putting up 6 points. The win brought
the Lady Bulldogs' record to 14 wins
and 6 losses for the season. Coach
Terri Carnley should be extremely
proud to end the season with such an
impressive record. Next year's var-
sity team.will have only one player
(Olivia Bailey) returning. However,
the Bell Lady Bulldogs junior varsity
team only lost one game this season,
so there will be considerable talent
advancing to the varsity team. The
District Tournament starts this week
on Tuesday (Bell meets Cedar Key)
and ends Saturday with the cham-
pionship game. Bell is hosting the'
tournament. Everyone please come
and support your local team as they
participate in the tournament.
The Seniors' Procession, with
their parents or other accompanying
friends or relatives, took place imme-
diately after the Ladys' game. It was
a very long ceremony because of the
number of seniors participating. In
addition to the seven Lady seniors
there were also seven seniors from
the boys' team and four from the
cheering squad, for a total of 18.


County Council officers are Crystal Smith-parliamentarian, Spencer
Hewitt-reporter/historian, Kailey Roux-secretary, Chandler Ash-dis-
trict delegate, Tucker McDaniel-vice president and Erin Jones-presi-
dent.
