Sandbar parties have reached intolerable level


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County officials are
asking FWC to crack down on
sandbar parties after an Old Town
woman was arrested over Memorial
Day weekend for firing gunshots
while partying on a sandbar near Hart
Springs.
Dubbed "a redneck yacht club," the
sandbar parties along.the Suwannee
River have grown in recent years
and now average anywhere from 75


to 100 boats on any given weekend.
As the crowd has grown, so has the
intensity of the parties. On Sunday,
May 27, Patricia Lynn. Bowmer,
48, of Old Town, was arrested by
FWC officers and charged with
Reckless Discharge of a Firearm'and
Possession of a Controlled Substance
Without Prescription. After being
booked into the Gilchrist County Jail,
Bowmer was released on her own
recognizance.


On Friday, June 1, Gilchrist County
Administrator Bobby Crosby wrote
a letter to Roland Garcia, regional
director of FWC. In the letter Crosby
explains that the Gilchrist County
Commission would like to express
its concern over the situation on the
Suwannee River on weekends and
holidays.
"Based on the observations of
county commissioners themselves,
and on complaints received from


others, the commission believes that
problems associated with partying
on sandbars and along the shoreline
of the river have reached intolerable
levels," Crosby wrote. "Excessive
drinking has been observed, drug
use is suspected and level of noise
and rowdiness has reached nuisance
levels. All this has an unacceptably
negative impact on public safety and
the enjoyment of public and private
property along the Suwannee River."


Ckosby further explained that the
county has and will continue to do
what it can to enforce laws along
the shoreline, where Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter has jurisdiction. County
officials would also like state law
enforcement officers to continue, and
if possible, increase enforcement on
the water and shorelines to alleviate
the problem.

A year in Iraq:

One Soldier's Discoveries


By Col. Matt Riordan, U.S. Army
I just wanted to provide a little per-
spective after a year in Iraq. I left
my family in D.C. and deployed in
June of 2011. On June 29th, I took
command of the Defense Contract
Management Agency-Iraq with 151
people spread across the country sup-
porting about 58 forward operating
bases. Initially we were stationed at
Camp Victory, near Baghdad, as we
planned and executed one of the larg-
est military drawdowns in history. At
the same time, we were also support-
ing the establishment of the US Mis-
sion under Department of State (DoS)
leadership to continue the diplomatic
objectives here in Iraq. This current-
ly is the largest overseas DoS post.
The opportunity to execute both the
drawdown of US Forces as well as
the stand-up of the DoS mission was
a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I'm
grateful for the opportunity to serve.
I give thanks to my'parents for the
loving home.that guided me success-
fully in life and to this career in the
military.
Again, it is a privilege to serve
with the dedicated men anid women
here, who have a sincere desire and
hope that Iraq will succeed in be-
coming a successful and peaceful
place. The Government of Iraq is,
slowly taking the reins and it remains
to be seen what the future will hold
for their country. We have invested
much here and we truly hope the best
for them.
* Ihad the occasion to discover a lot
of incredible people during this de-
ployment. One night Iwas working
in my office when the air conditioner
failed and water started leaking onto
the office floor. Within 20 minutes
of the service order call, an U.S. ex-
patriate and,three Iraqi workers show

up. "Where can I find the Colonel's
office? We understand'there is an
emergency with his air conditionerT'
So after the men began to work on the
unit, I engaged them in conversation.
It was surprising to me how long they
had supported the U.S. here in Iraq.
One had worked for 7 years, another
4 and the other for 3 years. All but
one had children and they were very
kind men. As I inquired about the
conditions in Baghdad, I got a bit
of a reality check. Other than the
known terrorist danger, the youngest
man relayed to me that when he de-
parts the US base and goes home that
he has very limited electrical power
there. He said that the-power in his
neighborhood is only on from 11am
to 12pm and then 7pm to 9pm, a total
of about 3 hours each day. He said he
also pays to get 6 amps of extra elec-
tricity from a generator that a fellow
set up in his area. When I asked how
long it had been this way, he said for
the last 8 years. I have to admit that
at that moment I was pretty ashamed
of the task they were doing for me on
my air conditioner. It was a stark re-
minder of just how much I think we
all take for granted.

Kindergarten students at Trenton Elementary School sang several songs during their graduation ceremony last week.


190 graduate


from kindergarten


By Carrie A. Mizell
Dressed; in their Sunday best
and grinning from ear to ear,
kindergarten students at Bell
and Trenton elementary schools
walked single file through the doors
of their school auditorium last
week as Pomp and Circumstance
played.
In early June of 2024, many
of the students will attend a very
similar graduation ceremony
as they prepare to accept their
high school diplomas. For now,
they have mastered the alphabet,
numbers and a rainbow of colors.
On May 29 and May 31, both
Trenton and Bell Elementary
Schools held graduation


ceremonies where kindergarten
students were presented with
completion certificates, as family
members and friends looked on.
The ceremonies were unique in that
Bell Elementary School's featured
a slide show with pictures taken of
the 2012 kindergarten graduates
throughout the school year. At Trenton
Elementary School's graduation
ceremony on Tuesday, May 29 Carsen
McKenzie. a kindergarten student in
Mrs. Perryman's class read aloud a
poem she had written:
Happy, Happy, Happy Me!
Look how happy we can be.
With a smile on our face
And a wink on our eye
Now its time to say goodbye!

Call me a stick in the mud, but I've
never really thought drinking and
operating a boat was a good idea. In
fact, I get angry just thinking about
how stupid people can be.
I have this memory forever en-
grained in my brain of a sandy-
haired boy who used to sit in front of
me every Sunday morning at church,
He was a year older than me and al-
though I thought all boys were awful
in elementary school, I couldn't help
thinking Luke McIntyre was pretty
cool. Maybe because he talked to me,
or because we had something in com-
mon other than First Baptist Church
membership; we both had freckles.
My heart still breaks when I think
about Luke now, because 20 years
ago this year he was killed on the Su-
wannee River. Luke and his family
were on a pontoon boat in late April
of 1992 enjoying a day on the river,
when their boat was hit head-on by
another boat. Luke, who was 12 at the
time, and his 8-year-old cousin both
died in the accident. Luke's aunt, not
only lost her child in the devastating


crash, but she was also left perma-
nently handicapped.
The Chiefland man who was dtriv-'
ing the ski boat that hit the McIntyre
family was subsequently convicted
of two counts of manslaughter while
boating under the influence and two
counts of manslaughter by culpable
negligence.
Some would say, well, accidents
happens. Yes, accidents do happen,
but I think it's important to remember
that people make choices.
I can't help but think what if that
had been my family, or your family,
left devastated by the negligence of a
person who chose to drink and drive.
It's a selfish choice, that can have life
altering consequences.
The Gilchrist County Commission
did, the, right thing earlier this week
when they advised County Adminis-
trator Bobby Crosby to send a letter
to FWC 'asking that officers crack
down on sandbar parties.
I know 'not everyone will agree
with me, but I think it may just save
someone's life...

crossroads, and I feel
like I have made the right decisions. I haven't
made a mess of things, I work good with other
Commissioners and staff. If I didn't think I
was capable of serving the citizens of Gilchrist
.County for the next 4 years, I wpuld not be|
asking for your support. I don't do what I dol
for the money, I do it 'Because I Care.' No one
has ever called me, that I haven't tried to help.
I've always made myself available to the
public. I have never used my position for my
personal gain, or used it to hurt anyone. I have
done my best to be what I think a
Commissioner should be. I am a servant, not a
dictator.
With your support on August 14, I will
continue to serve and represent you. I
encourage you to call me if I can help or if you
need to meet me.
Thank you for your consideration.,

What's God Got To Do With Marriage Anyway?
(Kent Heaton)


In the "Speaking Out" article of the Gainesville Sun
(May 22, 2012), Jeff Jones defends the need to legalize
same-sex marriages in part because he is homosexual and
in part of the inevitability of same-sex marriages
becoming legal in the U.S. In defining relationships he
speaks of "same-sex couples" in contrast to "straight
couples. What is not 'straight' is crooked or warped and
same-sex relationships are by nature against the norm. The
anatomy of same-sex marriages prohibits normal;
functions of the body and regardless of how the
homosexual community tries to redefine "family"
children are created by a man and a woman. Same-sex
couples are abnormnal by definition.
Mr. Jones question "What : God got to d6 with marriage
anyway" is confusing since he does not believe in God nor
the revelation of the mind of God to man. ie admits that
whether homosexuals have a right to marriagee "is entirely
beside the point. Further he concludes that "whether or
not God thinks same-sex marriage is okay" does not take
away the discriminatory nature of present day laws. Any
argument made from God's standpoint is "religious and
moral ... not a legal argument. The confusion lies in why
he would even suggest a belief in a God whom he is
unwilling to follow and cast the idea that God would
condemn homosexuality as without merit.
What does God have to do with marriage anyway? Since
He is the one who 'created the relationship of a man and
woman' (Genesis 1-2) and since He is the one who
established the law of that relationship confirmed by His
Son (Matthew 19) then it would seem to obvious that
there is only one Judge, Lawgiver and King (lsaiah,33:22;


James 4:12). Whether or not the United States of America
legalizes same-sex marriage does not change the Law of
God (Psalm 119:89). King Herod massacred the children of
Bethlehem (murder) looking for Jesus (Matthew.2:16-18)
under the cloak of his own legal authority. I assume if it is
legal then it must be right?
Disallowing same-sex couples the same, rights as normal
couples is not discriminatory; it is understanding that God
has never nor will ever approve of the vile passion in
exchanging the natural use for what is against nature.
Homosexuality is unclean, lustful, dishonoring, a lie,
shameful (Romans 1:24-27) and will only lead to a face to
face with the Creator who will open the despised book in
the eyes of man and show His judgment upon those who
served themselves instead of the Creator. You see, the
conclusion of the whole matter is whether man is right or
the Bible is right. "Let God be true but every man a liar"
(Romans 3:4). Marriage according to the Creator is one'
man and one woman.
It is not unlikely that one day "same-sex marriage will
be legal in every State. While this is an alarming thought it
must be remembered that no matter the legal justification
men give for establishing law, the Lawgiver still holds the*
final word. As in nature, man will go against the will of the
natural order of how God established things and then he
will "reap the whirlwind" (Hosea 8:7). Abraham Lincoln
said, "If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves he its
author and finisher These words are bearing truth in our
nation today. Stand for truth today or there will be nothing
to stand for tomorrow.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The beautitl, \'vt diwenching we
received from TthpIcal Storm Beryl
Monday and T,-\day of last week
was heaven sent, But, Charlie How-
der, interim e\eculi\e director of the
SuwNannee River Water Management
District told the Gilchrist County
Commission on Monday that it was
not enough, He explained that the
rainfall in this portion of the water
management district is still 12 inches
below normal for this time of year.
He pointed out the District is still at
record deficits on both the river lev-
els and the surface water levels.
Howder told the Gilchrist Com-
mission that the District staff had
created a model ordinance to deal
with the water shortage the district
is under. He presented this ordinance
to the board asking them to adopt the
temporary guideline and they could
reduce the fines if they so desired.
Under this ordinance the violation of
watering the grass of a residential ho-
meowner would be a second degree
misdemeanor that could have a $50p
fine. "Everyone must share is this
conservation program'until the water.
levels are returned to normal," How-
der told the Commission.
Commissioner. Sharon Laigford
asked the Execuitive Director if the
SR Water, Management District is


going to monitor this ordinance and
enbfore the guidelines of these rules
by lines and other penalties. Howder
explained by Gilchrist County adopt-
ing this ordinance, the county could
reduce the fines and the penalties,
and charge their residences what they
feel is fair. "The ordinance gives lo-
cal counties the authority to enforce
their guidelines for consideration in
Gilchrist County," Howder added.
"I think this is something the Su-
wannee River Water Management
District should be doing," explained'
Commissioner Randy Durden, "Not
Gilchrist County."
I feel the Water Management Dis-
trict is trying to impose this model on
Gilchrist county's residents to begin
'a conservation program that should
have been put .in place when the
drought began. If the water manage-
ment district had up-to-date data on
the minimum flows and, levels of the
Suwannee, Santa Fe and the Floridan
Aquifer for such a drought period, the
staff could have interpreted their data
and determined that the state of the
water condition was serious. From
that point, voluntary conservation
measures could have been put into
place for all users and we all would
be involved, in the practice of conser-
vation., i


As it is now, I wonder who is go-
ing to be involved in the conservation
effort. My higgest' question is why
should the taxpayers have to pay more
for another level of enforcement by
public officials when it should have
been done in the first place.
If the district had not allowed the
over permitting to occur in a drought
condition, then we possibly would
not have the extreme conditions that
we presently are in.
I don't like paying for repetition in
government bureaucracy when the
government agency in not doing the
job they are being paid to do.

Dear Editor,
I listen very carefully to what Pres-
' ident Barack Obama says and then I
watch very closely what he does.
I'then worry. I worry a lot.

Tracey

WILKERSON
For
Clerk of the
Circuit Court


EXPERIENCE
For the past 18 years, I have worked at the North East Florida Education
Consortium, where I am currently employed as the Network Operations Manager.
I am charged with technology, budgeting and data management. The office of the
Clerk of the Circuit Court mimics these responsibilities which include performing
a wide range of record keeping, information management, and financial
management for the judicial system and county government.
LEADERSHIP

staff, Database Administrators and Administrative Assistants
BUDGETING
The Clerk of the Circuit Court Is the financial manager who is the Accountant,
Auditor and Custodian of County Funds. Currently, I participate in planning and
maintaining three budgets with a combined total of over 4 million dollars. With
lawmakers making drastic cuts in County budgets, I will work diligently with
other elected officials to present an accurate accounting of the budgets to the
Board of Commissioners so that informed and educated decisions can be made
regarding the taxpayer's monies.
INFORMATION MANAGEMENT
One of the major roles of the Clerk of the Court is serving as Clerk of the Circuit
and County Courts as well as Clerk to the Board of County Commissioners. This
involves record keeping, coordinating the court dockets and being responsible
for daily workflow. Producing clear and precise documentation and managing
multiple projects and activities are part of my current responsibilities as Network
Operations Manager. Ensuring the records are maintained and secured along
with protecting the sensitivity of the informationwill be a primary function for me
as Clerk of the Court.
DATA MANAGEMENT
The Clerk of the Circuit Court.is a custodian of all records. This responsibility
aligns directly with my current duties as Operations Manager which, includes:
* Overseeing a 3.5 million dollar student and finance package
* Maintaining, accessing, backing up and archiving data
* Ensuring all records are maintained and secured along with protecting the
sensitivity of the information
GRANT WRITING
* Successfully wrote and was awarded eight grants in the past 3 years, securing
over 4 million dollars.
I feel extremely qualified for the Office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court and it
would be an honor to serve the citizens of Gilchrist County. I am looking
forward to visiting and talking with you in the upcoming months and I would
certainly appreciate your consideration in the upcoming election.,

Building

officials

work time

reduced
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
has asked staff to review the hours
that two Gilchrist County building
officials are currently working and
to reduce the time they are working
to the revenue that was previously
budgeted.
This action was considered by the
Commission when the board listened
as the County Administrator reported
the two building officials reduced
hours of work to 32 hours each per
week. Bobby Crosby explained that
there would still be a $5,381 impact
to the budget through the remainder
of the 2011-2012 fiscal year.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
asked if the workload in the Building
Department had increased enough
to keep the building officials busy
on a daily bases. She asked staff to
review the workload for Frank Ritter
and Bob Zerbe and determine if the
Building Department could reduce
the time of the two building inspectors
so the budget would not be impacted
by additional expense. Crosby is to
report back to the Commission in
their July 2 board meeting.
The Gilchrist County Commission
also took action to upgrade the
Gilchrist County Rodeo Arena
on Monday as they approved the
purchase of a music and paging
sound system for the public arena.
The system, installed by Jacksonville
Sound & Communications, Inc. is
reported to be $9,995 and carries a
one-year warranty. Commissioner
Randy Durden made a motion to
purchase the system for the quoted
price, which includes installation
and warranty. Commissioner D. Ray
Harrison, Jr agreed and gave a second
to the motion. The board voted 5-0 in
favor of the motion.
Crosby told the Commission that
Gilchrist County is receiving a lot of
inquires about the use of the arena.
He explained that the cost of the use
of the arena has been increased to
$500 a day and the county has booked
several dates in June and July for this
facility. Jackie Johnson, Gilchrist
County Finance Director, reported to
the board that an accounting schedule
has been established for the arena in
the Commission's General fund.

in the Primary Election?
* Florida is a closed primary state. That means that the primary elec-
tions are "nominating" elections for the Political Parties. In primary

.oil spill, you could get benefits from a class action settlement with
BP Exploration & Production Inc. and BP America Production
Company ("BP"). Go to DeepwaterHorizonSettlements.com
for more information, including information on how to file a
claim.

WHO IS INCLUDED IN THE MEDICAL
BENEFITS SETTLEMENT?
The Medical Class includes (1) clean-up workers and
(2) certain people who resided in specific geographic areas in
coastal and wetlands areas along the Gulf Coast during specific
periods in 2010. The website DeepwaterHorizonSettlements.
com has detailed descriptions and maps to help you determine
whether a geographic location may be included in one of these
zones. Additionally, you can call 1-866-992-6174 or e-mail
, info@DeepwaterHorizonMedicalSettlement.com to find out if
a geographic location is included.

(1) payments to qualifying people for certain acute (short-
term) and chronic (ongoing) medical conditions occurring
after exposure to oil or chemical dispersants; (2) provision
of periodic medical examinations to qualifying people; and
(3) creation of a Gulf Region Health Outreach Program,
consisting of projects to strengthen 'the healthcare system.
Benefits (1) and (2) will be provided only after the Court grants
final approval and any appeals are resolved.

How TO GET BENEFITS FROM THE
MEDICAL BENEFITS SETTLEMENT
You need to submit a Claim Form to request benefits. YopJ
can get a copy of the Claim Form by visiting the website or by


calling 1-866-992-6174. Claims can be submitted by mail. If
you have questions about how to file your-claim, you should
call the toll-free number for assistance.

The deadline for filing a Claim Form is one year after the
Medical Benefits Settlement becomes effective (that is, after
the Court grants "final approval" and any appeals are resolved).
The exact date of the claim filing deadline will be posted on
the website. It is highly recommended that Medical Class
Members complete and submit their claim forms promptly.
Please read the Economic and Property Damages Settlement
notice because you may also be eligible for a payment.from
that settlement.

medical claims. If you stay in the Medical Benefits Settlement,
you may object to it by August 31, 2012. The Detailed Notice
explains how to exclude yourself or object.

The Court will hold a hearing on November 8, 2012 to
consider whether to approve the Medical Benefits Settlement.
You or your own lawyer may ask to appear and speak at the
hearing at your own cost. Class Counsel will ask the Court
to consider an award of fees, costs, and expenses of 6% of
the value of the benefits actually provided under the Medical
Benefits Settlement Agreement. Class Counsel fees, costs, and
expenses under the Medical Benefits Settlement Agreement and
the Economic and Property Damages Settlement Agreement
jointly cannot exceed $600 million. Class members' payments

or six months after the E&PD Settlement becomes effective (that is,
after the Court grants "final approval" and any appeals are resolved),
whichever is later. There will be an earlier deadline to submit E&PD

rare and special automobiles. After
40 years of running his own business,
he retired to his present home in Bell.

ried to for 32 years, survived Larry.
He also has a step-daughter Kim
Cowger, who lives in Texas; an aunt,
Bernice Cpy of Belleville, Michigan;
two cousins and many second and
third cousins. Larry also leaves be-
hind wonderful and true friends in
Michigan and Florida. He will be
missed by many.
His body has been cremated and

urday, June 9, 2012, at 4:00 p.m. at

"It should be the goal of the county
and the state to control the drinking,
rowdiness and other misbehavior on
the river, and on its sandbars and
shorelines, so that use of the river can
again become safe and .njoii; able for
families as it has been in the recent
past," Cni,,%b stated in his letter.
Dixie County Manager Mike
Cassidy is expected to present a

One evening the Catholic Aposto-
late Nuncio for Iraq, the Ambassador
for the Vatican, came into the US
Embassy to say Mass. It was on that
night when I met someone with real
courage. Sister "Jane" is a Catho-
lic, Iraqi nun living in Baghdad. It
was incredible to see the peace on
her face and through an interpreter, I
ask her about life in Baghdad. Un-
derstandably, the violent attacks that
Chritiais have endured in Iraq are
profoundly sad and gut-wrenching.
After Mass that night, Sister loaded
the bus with other Catholic Iraqis and
in a full nun's black and white habit,
she re-entered downtown Baghdad.
That night, I saw someone with true
bravery. I pray for her each day that
God will protect and keep her.
Finally, there was another experi-
ence that came out of this year-long
deployment, but it wasn't here in
Iraq. As I deployed and left my wife,
Annmarie, in D.C. she did not skip a
beat in taking care of our home and
our four lovely daughters: Veronica
(13), Julia (10), Teresa (3) and Jo-
anna (2). It was neat to see how my
children pulled together to take more
responsibility now that I was gone
and Annmarie was single-handed.
As I left the States, clearly I had great
respect for my wife, but not as much
as I do after this year. She experi-
enced an earthquake in Virginia that
lasted for 20 seconds.....obviously a
long time. She took care of the fi-

lady's group, prayed at the abortion
clinic, completed country studies
with the girls, played laser tag with
the girls' classes, ensured that when-
ever there was a flight of senior veter-
ans coming into the D.C. to sightsee
that she took our daughters to pay
their respects to these Patriots upon
their arrival at the airport. [God

Dear Editor.
Last year. the Gilchrist County Public Library acquired a much needed
new roof. This year, a few weeks ago, the library had new carpet laid. It
also was badly needed. My purpose of this letter is to thank everyone who
was involved in the laying of the carpet The majority of the books and all
the furniture, including the shelving had'to be moved. This took a period of
six days that the library had to be closed. The library staff and volunteers
worked tirelessly to complete this task. also the county maintenance crew
and the Lancaster Correctional Center. A very big "Thank You" to everyone
involved.
Now, on a more personal note, I would like to thank so many people for
their concern, their phone calls, cards and especially their prayers for my
physical recovery. The support that I have received has been overwhelming.
A very sincere "Thank You" to everyone.
Parents, don't forget the Summer Library Program is coming in July. The
dates are July 5th, 12th. 19th, and 26th. beginning at 10:30 a.m.-ll:30 a.m.
and a lunch will be provided after the programs.
