Sale of Trenton



cemetery plots



suspended


By Carrie A. Mizell
The City of Trenton has suspended
the sale of cemetery plots, after it was
determined that people were being
buried in the wrong spots.
Trenton City Manager Taylor
Brown said that the suspension of
sales stemmed from information he
received several months ago by city
employees who went out to Trenton
Cemetery to mark a grave and found
that a person had beenburied in what
was supposed to be a walkway.
After that incident, Brown began
talking with long-time city employees
who told him that over the years there
have been several instances of people
being buried in the .wrong spot, only
to be moved later.
"I inherited a problem that has
apparently been going on for a long
time," Brown said.
The city manager presented a list
of cemetery issues to the city council
during their June 12 meeting. Issues
included lots being sold twice,
cemetery maps being worn and
difficult to read, rules pertaining to the
planting of trees, plants and flowers
that can be placed around a gravesite,
gates being put up at the entrance to
the cemetery, signage at the entrance,.
pump house reconstruction, dead
tree limbs being cut down, killings
on the roadway being replaced, and
digging by funeral home personnel,
which is reportedly being randomly
distributed rather than controlled.
Brown told the city commissioners
hiat there is also a handful of
markedd graves at the cemetery. He
proposed contacting Southeastern
Surveying and Mapping Corp. for a
qupte on what it would cost the city
ip have ground penetrating radar used
fp detect and locate gravesites. The
company could also provide the city
with a survey mapping all gravesites


within the cemetery, as well as sub-
surface anomalies. )
In an effort to correct .all the past
problems coming to light at, the
Trenton Cemetery, Brown is now
forming a task force that will include
Gene Wiggins and City Commissioner
Randy Rutter, who have volunteered
to help'work through the graveyard
issues.
City officials will also have to
determine in the coming months if
they will change 'or begin enforcing
city policy that states only flat plaques
can be used on gravesites in the new
portion of the cemetery. Despite the
policy in place, traditional tombstones
have been used to mark many of the
gravesites in the new cemetery.
According to city officials, the
older portion of the Trenton Cemetery
'has a total of 715 plots. Of those, 676
plots have been sold and 39 are still
available. In what is considered the
newer portion of the cemetery, there
are 682 spots. Of those, 570 have
been sold and 112 are still available.
In comparison to area cemeteries,
Trenton Cemetery' is the least
expensive with single 6x10 cemetery
plots selling for $150. A small price
compared to some of the county's
other cemeteries: single plots at Pine
Grove Baptist Church sell for $850
each and Joppa Baptist Church's
cemetery plots gofor $350 each.
SAfter the issues are resolved,
Brown said he would like to see
gates put up at the entrance of the
Trenton Cemetery to keep people
from driving on gravesites and new
landscaping put in.
For the time being,. the City of
Trenton has a waiting list and city
employees have been instructed to
take names and contact information
for anyone who would like to
purchase a plot at Trenton Cemetery.

Ranferi Zacarias, 26. Investigators
found Zacarias' body inside his home
and reported that he died from what
appeared to be self-inflicted wounds.
Castillo and Zacarias reportedly
knew each other and. according to
statements taken from friends and
family, investigators were able to
determine that Zacarias viewed
Castillo as a mother figure, having
reportedly lost his own mother some

At press time, the case was under
investigation as officers were trying
to determine the catalyst that sparked
Zacarias to take such violent actions.


Natural gas line explodes

As Tropical Storm Debby drenched North Florida early last week, Gilchrist County rescue personnel found themselves called to North Florida
Holsteins on Tuesday evening, June 26, after a tree fell on a gas line causing a large fire to erupt. Traffic along US 129 just south of Bell was
stopped in both directions as the fire raged. Gas was reportedly being released from the line, which prompted Gilchrist County. to call in a
Gainesville HazAlat team for backup, Dairy personnel told firefighters where the natural gas line's shut off valve was located some 300 feet
fHom the fire. Firefghters Were then able to shut thegas off, but not lbfore the fire burned several fence posts and two large trees. Photo by

Bel I students adopt new Marines

By Carrie A. Mizell
Bell. Eien entary School is a
family. ,
If you don't believe it ask Tina
Thomas who works at BES and
dives a bus for the Gilchrist
County School District.
Thomas' son, Scott Thomas,
25, entered U.S. Marine Corps.
Boot Camp at Parris Island, South
Carolina on February 13. For 13
long weeks, the Thomas family
was unable to communicate with
Scott except by letter.
While Scott was enduring boot
camp, Tina and her co-workers
at Bell Elementary School, along
with the students began collecting
supplies for the new Marines in
Scott's platoon.
Under the Stand Alone Marine
(SAM) program the students at
Bell Elementary School were able
to collect items like toothbrushes
and toothpaste for the Marines.
SAM was initiated by parents
of Marines graduating from boot
camp, who noticed that while they
were showering their own loved
ones with homemade cookies and
affection at graduation, some new
Marines had no one to support
them at graduation.
Students at Bell Elementary
School were able to help Marines
in Platoon 3032 feel special at
graduation by showering them
with supplies and letters.
As Tina Thomas ,recalls, "The
guys were overwhelmed with
gratitude at receiving the bags of Johnny Scott, a Bell Elementary Schoolfirst grade student, is shown with bagged supplies.
supplies and letters."


"Dear Excellent Marine'
Thank you for everything you do, Always remember God loves you.
Marine, you know you're brave and strong, If someone says different, they are wrong.
We are very thankful for you and your friends, God be with you until the end.

I pray about-your every night, Because you are filled with pride and might.
Because y'all are brave, nice and cool, We all love you at our school.
Thank you Marine.
Love, a B.E.S. 5th grade student
P.S. Hope you enjoy the items we sent you. We all love you."

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


"If you can find a pretty country
girl that can cook and carries a bible,
now there's a woman."
Phil Robertson

Of late I have had several people
ask me about Gordon and Jan Dasher
and their connection to the Robertson
family on Duck Dynasty, a hit TV
show on A&E. Gordon and Jan taught
school in Trenton for
quite a few years. In
fact their children at-
tended and graduated
from THS. Jan is Phil
Robertson's sister, she
was born and raised in
Louisiana.
Gordon and Jan
moved back to
Louisiana a few years
ago as two of their
grown children, Zack
and Melissa live there. /
Truly, about the only TV show I
hear people talking about these days
is Duck Dynasty. Everyone seems
to enjoy it and most everyone has a
favorite episode, including my.3 '-
year-old granddaughter, Allie 'Claire.
Recently she was telling me about
her mother getting up in the middle of
the night and finding the living room
floor covered in water due to the rain
blowing in a window, courtesy of
Tropical Storm Debby. Allie said,.
"Me-Me there was water all over the
floor right where me and my daddy
sit to watch Duck Dynasty--I not
know what we gonna do." Allie' is so
taken with the Robertson clan that
she wants to have a Duck Dynasty/
Princess birthday party for her fourth
birthday. She is quite the party
planner because she said her cousin,
Gus can dress up in his camno and she
can wear a poofy pink princess skirt
and mommy can make them both
beards to wear just like Willie. Can't
you just see it now,. camo balloons
and-- cupcake '-'witfi'pink icin!4itli
duck calls stuck on top. Oh yes, Allie
has' her own -duck call and she-goes
quacking around the house with it.
Years ago when our son, J. was
in middle school he and John were
invited by Gordon and his son, Grant
who is J.'s age, to travel to West
Monroe, Louisiana to hunt ducks
with Gordon's brother-in-law, Phil
Robertson. Gordon told John that.
Phil was a great'duck hunter and they
were sure to kill their limit of ducks.
At the time, no one down here had,
even heard of Phil Robertson.
When they came home riot only
had they killed their limit of ducks
but they talked non-stop about the
Robertsons. After the hunt Phil
cooked up- a big pot of gumbo or
jambalaya and the whole family of
Robertsons and the Florida boys sat
down at their big long table, the same
one you .see on TV, and cleaned out
the huge pot..
J. came home and told mte,
"Momma I just 'thought you could
cook until I ate some of Mr. Phil's
cooking. "
I still rernember thinking, who the
devil is this Phil Robertson. Well,
now I know and I'm pretty sure Miss
Kay (Phil's wife) can surely out cook
me. I also now know. why my boys
were so taken with the Robertsons. At
the time most of Phil and Kay's sons
were still in school and beardless, all
except Phil.
I read an interesting interview with
Phil online where he said, "Let's face
it, the bar has been set pretty low for
you to get on American television
these days. I think they said, 'Why


don't we try a functional family?'
And somebody said well, that's a
novel idea. Round here, you know,
there's no outbursts, belligerence,
cursing, getting' drunk, dope, no,
we're Godly people, so maybe it's a
little switch for a change. We're not-
actually rednecks, but we probably
could be called good ole boys."
Gordon and Jan and their children
Melissa, Zack and
Grant are missed by all
their friends in Gilchrist
-County. We were lucky
to have Jan and Gordon
as teachers for our
children and blessed to
have the entire family as
l friends..
Mary Ann Johnson
gave me an update on the
.famiry. Gordon and Jan.
live next to her brother,
Phil and sister-in-law Kay near
West Monroe. All their children are
married, Melissa has two little girls,
and Zack has one girl and three boys.
Grant lives with his wife and little
girl in Memphis, Tennessee where he
is in school to become a dentist.
Wednesday is July 4th and like
many of you all we plan to celebrate.
twice this year. Once on the actual day
.and then again on Saturday .when we
make our annual trip to Suwannee to
enjoy the day and 'see the fireworks.
Our family has some traditional July
4th food and one thing we usually
make is banana pudding. Did you
know banana pudding started ddwn
here in the South? I have yet to run
into a Southern man who does not
love a bowl of banana pudding.
This week I would like to share
with you all my simple version of
banana pudding which you can whip
up in no' time. In .fact from start to
finish it took me only 15 minutes.


5 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 / tr)P nilk .' a -, .. ..
1 3.4-ounce vanilla Jell-o instant
pudding
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 8-ounce Cool-Whip
1 box Nilla wafers
4 to 6 bananas, depending on size
You will need clear glass to put this
pudding in. I use my "older than the
dirt" Sunbeam mixing bowl which is
the perfect size. A trifle dish works
nicely also.
Use a hand mixer or a full size
mixer to beat the softened cream.
cheese until it is light and fluffy. Add
about 14 cup of the milk and beat it
in until it is smooth. Then add 3 cup
of milk and beat again until smooth.
Next add the pudding and beat well.
Then add the last 3 cup of milk and
vanilla. Once it is beaten smooth fold
in half of the Cool Whip into pudding
mixture.
Place a layer of Nilla wafers in
bottom of glass bowl, slice one
banana over wafers or one and 'a .
half if bananas are small. Then cover
wafers with 1/3 of the pudding mix.
Repeat until you have 3 layers. Top"
the pudding with remaining half of
Cool Whip. You can crumble wafers
and sprinkle on top or even sprinkle
chopped pecans on top to make it
look pretty. Chill for a couple hours
or more before serving.
Note: All the stopping and starting
to beat the cream cheese -in well is
a pain but it takes that to keep from
having lumps of cream cheese in the
pudding. The recipe serves 8-10 and
can easily be doubled for a trowd.

Comments

By John M. Ayers

I don't know if there has ever been
a perfect storm, but I do recognize a
blessing Nwhen I experience one. The
soaking we received last week was a
blessing in so many ways. We truly
needed rain in the form of a good,
slow drenching and Tropical Storm
Debby provided us with that. In some
low-lying areas of North Florida it
has turned out to be a flood, too. The
impacts of the flooding from the ris-
Sing Santa Fe River and the upper trib-
utaries of the Suwannee River have
not been determined at this point, the
water is still six feet high and rising.
Some folks say if we could get an-
other one or two of these during the
remaining summer, it would bring us
back to normal. I don't know if there
will ever again be a stage of what we
can considered to be normal or an av-
erage level of water in the aquifer.
On Wednesday, July 4th, Indepen-
dence Day, the Gilchrist County Jour-
nal staff will be relaxing in whatever
means they choose. The office will
be closed and we just hope that ev-
eryone will have a safe and enjoyable
Independence Day. Take the time to
think about the true meaning of Inde-
pendence and the freedom we have in
the United States of America.
Fireworks in celebration of 4th of
July are scheduled in several of the
coastal communities during the up-
coming weekend. Get out and enjoy
everything the Big Bend communi-
ties have to offer. Do remember to be
safe and enjoy the outdoors.
On Wednesday afternoon, Cindy
Jo and I are planning to travel up to
Branford to ,experience our first bar-
becue competition. I love to watch
these shows on television. I just hope
the weather is enjoyable as well. I
like to smoke and grill meats when
the weather is good. I enjoy trying
different types of seasonings on pork,
chicken and of course seafood.
Take care and have an enjoyable
Independence Day.

Progress Energy scam alert
Progress Energy is urging
customers be on alert for a new
utility bill payment scam affecting
customers across the country.
Scammers claim that President
Obama will pay customers' utility
bills through a new federal program.
Progress Energy has received reports
of customers who have been contacted
about this scam in Florida. According
to the Better Business Bureau,
customers have been contacted
with claims that President, Obama
is providing credits or applying
payments to utility bills. To receive
the money, scammers claim they
need the customers' Social Security
and bank routing numbers. In return,
customers are given a false bank
routing number that will supposedly
pay their utility bills. In reality, there
is no money, and customers believe
they have paid their bills when in fact
they have not. This is a scam.


Mrs. Wester graduated from the
Michael Reese Hospital and Medical
Center with her R.N. degree. ,
Mr. Wester graduated from St. Pe-
tersburg College and currently works
at Lancaster Correctional Institution.

Losing Focus
(Kent Heaton)


"Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring
the issues of life. Put away from you a deceitful mouth,
and put perverse lips far from you. Let your eyes look
straight ahead, and your eyelids look right before you.
Ponder the path of your feet, and let all your ways be
established. Do not turn to the right or the left; Remove
your foot from evil" (Proverbs. 4:23-27). The great
struggle in life is found on the battlefield of the heart. The
law of God is in conflict with the law of sin (Romans
7:13-25) and while the "spirit is willing, the flesh is
weak" (Matthew 26:41). The wise man exhorted in
Proverbs 4:23-27 to keep the heart with all diligence and
be careful how one speaks. As with the human body, the
eyes are given to give direction. When the eyes cannot see
properly everything suffers.
While there are many tools the devil uses in hindering
our path, the eyes are a prime target. If he is able to
change our focus or cause us to lose our focus, he will
have a greater power .and influence over us. Those with
diminished eyesight need assistance. Spiritually when our
heart loses the focus of serving God; either we will trust
God to lead us or we will allow Satan to direct our steps.
Rich Atchley wrote in his book, 'Sinai Summit': "Too
often we make the mistake of thinking that Satan is
antireligion. He's not. He doesn't even mind our
worshiping Jehovah, as long 'as we mix in a few other
gods for good measure. In fact, Satan doesn 't mind our-
choosing good or even doing good sometimes as long as
we're doing it because we think it's a good idea. What
Satan objects to is our doing good because we have put
God first."
When we lose focus on righteousness we turn toward
unrighteousness. This does not have to be "blatant" sin


but rather a dulling of the eyes toward those things holy.
Our efforts are no longer concentrated on serving God. The
areas of concern in life dim from view as we fill ourselves
with "the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of
riches" and the word is choked and we become unfruitful
(Matthew 13:22). Apathy sets in and the spirit is weakened
from neglect. As the spiritual immunities begin to weaken
we become more susceptible to the larger influence of sin.
After time spiritual sickness takes our eyesight completely
and we are blind .with hearts that are hardened (John
12:40).
Losing focus is a malady that hinders our growth. It leads
us to be dull of mind and ineffective in fighting
courageously the fight of faith. Losing focus will lead to
taking our eyes off of Jesus. We stumble more; we have
fear for not being able to see clearly; we are easily led in
the wrong path; we find do happiness. What is the answer
to our calamity? Jesus described the church at Laodicea as
"wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked" His advice
was "to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you
may be rich; and white garments, that you may be
clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be
revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you
may see" (Revelation 3:17-18).
The cataracts of sin must be removed to restore our focus.
This can only be done by returning our focus upon the
word of God and its author. "Turn away my eyes from
looking 'at worthless things, and revive me in Your way.
Establish Your word to Your servant, who is devoted to
fearing You" (Psalms 119:37-38). Examine your eyes and
see where your focus is. What is the focus of your life?
"Let your eyes look straight ahead, and your eyelids look
right before you" (Proverbs 4:25).

Thank you county
commissioners
I am a lifelong citizen of Glchrist
County and would like to take a mo-
ment to say thank you. I am proud
to live in a community where I feel
like it is safe for my children to grow
up, go to school and become produc-
tive young adults. I think our county
has been running very well the past
few years when so many others are
struggling and can't recover from our
economy. While speaking about our
county, I would also like to point out
I live down County Road 232 off of
Highway 129, about one mile from
North Florida Holsteins and I've
heard many people complain about
our water and that our county com-
missioners won't do anything about
it. Well, after careful research I have
discovered that if you want a change'
in our water (and I sure do), that we
need to consider those responsible
- our Soil and Water Conservation.
So as for our county commission-
ers please do not discredit them for
something they have no control
over. I would like to thank our cur-
rent county commissioners for a job
well done. I sincerely hope they get
the chance to continue to serve us.
I would also like to say thank you
to our school board members who
have done a great job despite fund-
ing cuts.


Paper is good
It's OK to print!!! I often receive
e-mails that caution me -to "Consider
the environment before printing this
e-mail" or "Save trees: Print only
when necessary."
As a generational forest landowner
and logger, I probably love trees more
than the average American. The fact
is that forest landowners can't keep,
growing trees without markets for
their natural, organic, renewable and
sustainable products. Too many for-
est landowners are forced to convert
their forests to other (less desirable)
uses because they can no longer real-
ize a return on their long-term invest-
ment.
Paper is good. It's a "sustainable,
renewable, recyclable, plant-based
product that connects us in so many
ways to the important things in life-
- great ideas are started oni-paper,.thei
world is educated on paper, busi-
fiesses are founded on 'paper, love-is
professed on paper, important -news
is spread on paper." (www.paperbe-
cause.com)
In fact, more forests are lost due
to insect infestation, wildfire and
disease, due to poor management

Baby Rain

Quade Rain would like to announce the arrival of his brother, Braxton
Walker Rain. Braxton was bom on February 14, 2012, at 1:40 p.m. at North
Florida Regional. He weighed 7 lbs. 5 oz. and measured 19 inches long.
He is the son of Eric and Andria Rain of Trenton. Maternal grandparents
are Jackey and Ram Herring of Newberry and John and Elizabeth Wesley of
Trenton. Paternal grandparents are Herbie and Angie Rain of Trenton.
Quade is proud to be a big brother and happy to have a little brother to play
with.


strategies than from printing e-mails.
I dare say, it's not the private forest
landowner who can afford to lose
trees from those afflictions. Just driv-
ing through a- national forest will
break your heart.
Chuck Leavell, .a musician, .tree
farmer,, environmentalist and author,
has suggested that we add the follow-
ing tag line to our e-mails:
"It's OK to print this e-mail. Pa-
per is a bio-degradable, renewable,
sustainable product made from trees.
Growing and harvesting trees' pro-
vides jobs for millions of Americans.
Working forests are good for the en-
vironment and provide clean air and
water, wildlife habitat and carbon
storage. Thanks to improved forest
management, we have more trees in'
America today than we had 100 years
ago."
I've added it to my e-mail messag-
es. I encourage you to do the same.
May the FOREST be with you,

s by each 4-H'er.
Our second day was to continue
their quilts, to get as much done on
them as they could. They all did a
great job, Ms. Anna changed pace
some on the third day and the girls
got to make a purse to take home that
day. They all were so proud of them.
After the purses were finished, they
started on their 6-hour quilts again.
The quilts were coming together
beautifully. They. were almost fin-
ished at the end of the day.
The last day of camp we saw these
beautiful quilts finished. We are so
proud of all the girls. Mr. Chris came
at noon to make popcorn and snow-
cones for everyone. As each girl fin-
ished their quilt, they played games.
Snacks and lunch were always a
great break to look forward to. It was
an exciting camp for all of us. Thank
you to all of our volunteers, who
came out each day to help us. We had
8 Springhouse Quilters, grandmas
and moms come to help us this week.
You are all greatly appreciated. Have
a great summer, everyone.

Salute to Those Who Serve
You stand among them all,
Standing each'day, brave, proud and tall.
The world looks at you, but fails to see
Oh, the things you sacrifice to keep us free.
A lot we take for granted each day,
As we continue to go on our way.
As we sleep safely in the U.S.A.
Many ofyou are away.
You fight for our hopes, dreams, and liberty,
You fight for our freedom......A HERO to me!
The hardest thing for a person to be,
is a soldier fighting to keep us free.
For when a person becomes a soldier,
He/she writes a blank check.
Never knowing the cost of keeping us free.
Dear Fellow Citizens,
Our family would like to take time away from the campaign,
to pay a special tribute and say thanks to those who are or have
served in the Armed Forces. As a Veteran of Foreign Wars, we
understand the sacrifice that not only the service personnel
make, but the sacrifices that families make too. Thank you for
your willingness to serve:so that we can continue to enjoy our
independence.
Sincerely,
The Rouxs
Robert, Sherry, Tray
Bailey & Kailey
Thank you to all the men and women who have served or are
currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. You
have sacrificed so much to keep us safe and free.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY

Questions from the Campaign:
Why did you come out later
than other candidates?
The position of Superintendent of Schools is
not a position to be taken lightly. Convictions
and a willingness to guide are the greatest tools
of any leader. Our convictions should lead our
actions and our actions should be influenced by
our heads and our hearts, neither one
independently. This conviction led me to much
thought, prayer, and research. Time was spent
reading and researching budget constraints,
questioning neighboring superintendents, and
developing ideas for the future of Gilchrist
County Schools. I felt it was essential to come
out confident in my ability, skill set, education,
and experience, convicted and /committed to
seeking the office of Superintendent. After
reaching this conclusion, I was willing to make
the monetary and personal investment in this
community because I believe it is the right thing
to do and that I am the right person for the job.
I believe the successes of our district team and
students should be celebrated as we strive for
new heights. My philosophy is somewhat simple,
I'm committed to lead with dignity and respect
with an emphasis on communication and
collaboration, always putting the needs of
students first. I ask for your vote on August
14...together we can be UNITED FOR
EXCELLENCE.

Health Department waives testing fee for affected wells
River Flooding May Affect Private Wells


River flooding may have impacted
your private well and made your wa-
ter unsafe. If your well casing has
been submerged by flood water, either
i1se bottled water, or boil or disinfect
all the water you use for drinking,
making beverages, cooking, brush-
ing your teeth, washing dishes, and
washing areas of the skin that have
been cut or injured.
:Common unscented household
bleach (4 to 6%) can be used effec-
tively as a chlorine disinfectant. Add
drops (about 1/8 teaspoon) of un-
scented household bleach per gallon
bf water, then let stand for 30 min-
hftes, repeating the procedure if the
water is still cloudy. An alternative
dlisinfecting method involves bring-
ing water to a rolling boil for one
minute.
: If your well has been flooded please
pall the Gilchrist County Health De-
partment for information on how to
Sample your water free of charge and


It's no secret that I
have always made my
living in agriculture.
Just because I support
Ag doesn't mean that I
am not concerned


about our


natural


resources and environ-
ment. We don't have


where to bring the sample for bacte-
riological testing. If the test reveals
bacteria, the well and water system
need to be disinfected.
It is important to disinfect both well
and plumbing water with unscented
household bleach to ensure that all
infectious agents are destroyed. If
you have water treatment devices,
remove all membranes, cartridges,
and filters and replace them after the
chlorination process is completed.
The amount of chlorine determines
the length of time you allow the
bleach to remain in your system.
DOH recommends the following
steps to disinfect a contaminated
well:
If the water is discolored before
adding the bleach, run the water until
it is clear for up to 10 minutes.
Turn off and then drain your hot
water heater- bleach is not effective
in water above 105 degrees.
Remove and replace charcoal fil-

Most everyone has heard of me or knows me
in Gilchrist County. You know what kind of

County Commissioner. That's every man,

trusted me for 8 years, you can trust me now, as
you have in the past, I promise.

ters after the disinfecting process is
completed.
To avoid adding contamination
to the well during disinfection, clean
the work area around the top of the
well. Then remove grease and min-
eral deposits from accessible parts of
the well head and flush the outside
surfaces with 1/2 cup of unscented
household bleach in 5 gallons of wa-
ter.
Turn off the pump. Remove the
cap or the well plug on the rubber
seal. There are many types of well
caps and plugs. If you have ques-
tions, you should contact a licensed
well driller. If you have a submers-
ible pump, you may also want to con-
tact a licensed well driller for advice
on disinfection procedures.
Consult the bleach chart and
pour the recommended amount of
unscented bleach (4 to 6%) solution
into the well. Try to coat the sides
of the casing as you pour. If you get
bleach on the pump or wiring, flush
it thoroughly with fresh water to pre-
vent later corrosion.
Bleach Chart
For Wells 20' in depth: (with Well
Diameters from 2"-6") use 1 cup of
bleach.
For Wells 30' in depth: Use 1 cup
of bleach for well diameters 2"-5"
and 2 cups of bleach for well diam-
eters of 6".
For wells 40' in depth: use 1 cup of
bleach for well diameters of 2" and
4", and 2 cups for well diameters of
5" and 6".
For wells 50' iri depth: use 1 cup of
bleach for 2" diameter wells; 2 cups
for well diameters of 4" and 5"; and
3 cups for 6" well diameters.
For wells 80' in depth: use cup
of bleach for 2"; 2 cups for 4" well
diameters; and 1 quart for 5" and 6"
well diameters.
For wells 100' in depth: use 1 cup
for 2" diameter wells; use 3 cups for
4" diameter wells; 1 quart for 5" di-
ameter wells; and 1.5 quarts for 6"
diameter wells.
For wells 150' in depth: use 2 cups
for 2" diameter wells; I quart for 4"
diameter wells; 2 quarts for 5" diam-
eter wells; and 2.5 quarts for 6" di-
ameter wells.
For wells 200' in depth: use 3 cups
of bleach for 2" diameter wells; 1.5
quarts for 4" diameter wells; 2.5
quarts for 5" diameter wells; and 3
quarts for 6" diameter wells.
Re-cap or plug the well opening
and wait 30 minutes.
Turn on and, if needed, re-prime
the pump. Open all of the faucets on
the system one at a time. Allow the
water to run until there is a noticeable
smell of bleach. You may also want
to .flush the toilets If yotihave 'Out-
side faucets, you may want to direct
the water away from sensitive plants.
If you cannot detect a bleach odor, re-
peat the disinfecting process.
Turn off all of the faucets and al-
low the bleach to remain in the sys-
tem for at least eight hours. Backwash
water softeners, sand filters, and iron
removal filters with bleach water.
Again, open all the faucets and
run the water until there is no bleach
smell-for up to 15 minutes.
After disinfecting your well, the
water needs to be tested to verify that
it is safe to drink. Although unscented
household bleach is effective against
microorganisms, it will not remove
chemical contamifiation that may
'have gotten into your well. Contact
the Gilchrist County Health Depart-
ment at 352-463-3120 for sampling
instructions to get your water tested
for chemicals if you are concerned.
Fees for chemical testing have not
been waived at this time. For fur-

Norm Conti, bus coordinator, left to right, Willa Scaggs and VC Can-
non, bus drivers

seniors offered free bus ride


for shopping
Submitted by Norm Conti,
Bus Coordinator,
July starts our third year and it has
not only become a free trip for shop-
ping at Wal-Mart but a social event
that Gilchrist County residents look
forward to. We are presently averag-
ing 30 riders, but we have room for
at least 10 more. Ladies, if you have
missed having a man carry and un-
load your groceries; this is a perfect
opportunity for you as the men who
ride the bus not only watch out for
you but also your purchases.


The bus is free due to the gener-
osity of your County Commissioners
who deserve a big thank you every
time you see them or every time you
ride the bus.

...Gilchrist County is the heart of North Florida. Our rivers and springs attract visitors and natives
alike. Generations of Gilchrist residents have fished our rivers and enjoyed cold plunges into our
springs.
Today we are suffering through one of the worst droughts to hit Florida in many years. Up until the
recent rains Gilchrist was deemed in an "exceptional drought" situation; Our ground water and springs
are still suffering. Our area usually receives about 47 inches of rain. Last year we received about 33
inches.
But let's take a look at a bigger picture. The "bowl" of water we draw from stretches from South
Carolina to Key West and from Jacksonville to Alabama. Large urban areas such as Charleston, SC,
Savannah, GA, and Jacksonville, are pumping millions of gallons per day to water lawns and fill swim-
ming pools. Retirement retreats such as the Villages are supporting retirees at a water use rate of about
137 gallons per day, plus golf courses. Go figure 100,000 people times 137 gallons per day times.365
days per year. That's a lot of water! Then you have the Tampa Bay Area with about four million thirsty
people.
Get the picture. There are a lot of straws in "our" bowl of water. And the entire State of Florida is
looking for water. We are all in this together. It's not "us" versus "them." It's the homeowners, farm-
ers, businesses, and John Doe citizen in this struggle. From time to time all of us need a cool drink of
water!
And that is why it is important to have elected representatives who will work with our agencies in
Tallahassee from the Governor's office on down to the FDEP and the SRWMD to see that our natural
resources are protected and respected, and that everyone operates under the same set of rules. Let's
make sure the legacy we pass on to our grandchildren includes our rivers and springs.
Please consider casting your vote for Buddy Vickers on August 14th. Buddy is an independent
thinker and is not obligated to anyone...

Electing Gabriel Martin as your sheriff is one of the most important choices that you as a
citizen of Gilchrist County can do that will serve to bridge the gap between the community
and law enforcement. In fact, I was approached by the Gilchrist County Tea Party and
asked to participate in a candidate survey. I must say that I do admire and respect our
citizens who see themselves as the guardians of democracy and hold elected officials
accountable for doing the right things for the right reasons. If citizens are going to hold us
accountable, it is important that we as elected officials demonstrate transparency in all that
we do. So in the interest of transparency I wanted to share with the citizens of Gilchrist
County my responses to these questions so that you know where I stand on these important
issues and understand my vision of what I want to accomplish as your sheriff. With the
election nearing, it is time that you know the truth and that is that, I'm the only candidate
running for sheriff who has the courage to tackle head-on the issues facing our community.
VOTE GABRIEL MARTIN FOR SHERIFF
The questions are as follows:
1. Do you think you are qualified for the office you seek?
a. Yes, I'm the most qualified because I'm a lifelong resident of Gilchrist County and
I have worked diligently as a law enforcement professional to serve our community. I
have 9.5 years of experience patrolling Florida roadways, many of which are in
Gilchrist County. During this time I have also experienced firsthand the issues that
plague our citizens, and our children. It is my passion to ensure that Gilchrist County
residents feel safe in their schools and especially in their homes.

2. If elected, what will your goals) be during your first year in office?
a. When I'm elected I will complete internal and external assessments
SHORT TERM GOALS
i. Major issues that need immediate attention i.e. zoning of patrol units for maximum
coverage and decrease in-response time.
ii. How can effectiveness and efficiency be improved
iii. Issues or concerns about.sheriff office i.e. follow up on investigations so victims of
.-crimes are aware ofthe case status
iv. Recommendations from personnel
v. Goals and strengths of individual departments/units. i.e. possible reassigning of
certain personnel to maximize their strengths
vi. Sheriff's expectation of members of the sheriff's office
vii.Develop Action Plan
INTERMEDIATE GOALS
viii. Increase educational opportunities and capabilities of deputies
(investigations,;^crime reduction strategies)
ix. Review GCSO policies,'procedures, and training, '
x. Review structures and manpower to reduce duplicative services and put more
deputies on the street and in the community. (Assign Full Time Agriculture Deputy)
xi. Work with school board to develop early intervention programs for at risk children
xii.Work with area drug task forces to counter drug epidemic
xiii. Learn, cultivate, and manage GCSO culture. Do what is right and challenge the
status quo.

3. As the Sheriff, what do you think is the most serious law enforcement problem
facing Gilchrist County?
a. Prescription pills, crack, and methamphetamine
b. Synthetic drugs like bath salts
c. Burglary & larceny -I will enhance crime prevention strategies
d. Prevention and investigation of street crimes
e. Proactive crime analysis
f. Specialized training and training expenses
g. Limited budget

4. Do you believe that the Sheriff's Office should use zero base budgeting?
a. Yes, it is no secret that many budgets are based on the previous year's budget. With
zero based budgeting I can examine the budget from the ground up, paying critical
attention to whether the funds approved last year are still needed for the upcoming
fiscal year. But I will use caution because a budget that is too restrictive and specifies
in detail what money goes where can create inflexibility. As a constitutional sheriff I
will maintain contingency funds to handle emerging issues and needed services. I will
conduct a zero based analysis each year of the four year term with the goal of finding
inefficiencies, but will limit it to one or two departments each year to reduce stress to
our personnel and the time required to conduct such a comprehensive budget. It is my
goal to establish "Best Management Practices" as it relates to spending and budget
control with the overall objective of reducing debt.

5. Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office is very dependent on grant monies.
a. Is there any danger, if any, of accepting grant monies? Yes, while grants provide
a valuable service in the form of new equipment and additional personnel it can be a
S double edged sword. While grants will pay for new equipment like Mobile Computer
Terminals it will not always pay for tech and software support. Positions provided by
grants are usually good for three years and then the organization will be responsible to
maintain sustainability of the positions salary, which could cause a deficit in the budget
if not planned appropriately. Grants are not bad; they simply need critical thinking and
long term sustainability.

thoroughly discuss the issues. Therefore, I have provided additional information that
accurately explains my point of view. It is important to express my commitment to
answering the tough questions. When the citizens of Gilchrist County elect me they
will know that I'm a very open and effective leader that serves first, the residents of
Gilchrist County.

God Bless,
Gabriel Martin


Political advertisement paidifor and approved by Gabriel Martin, Republican, for Sheriff


6. If you win and are sworn in as Sheriff, please explain your thoughts on the
oath you will take and what it means to you.
a. The oath means to me that I will honor the sacred duty to serve, protect and.
defend the citizens of Gilchrist County. This Sacred Oath of Office is my guaran-
tee to uphold and obey the Constitution of the United States of America. I will
never betray my badge, integrity, character or the public trust. If a sheriff does not
believe in the sanctity of what he/she does, if they do not believe in the honor and
nobility of what they do, then when tempted they will violate the very oath that
they swore to uphold. It is my obligation as sheriff to report to the PEOPLE and
model the way of an ethical service oriented law enforcement professional.

7. What programs or adjustments, in the Sheriff's Office, are needed to bring
Gilchrist County into the 21st century?
a. Provide internal radio communication and interoperability with first
responders
b. Seek out information technology and database integration
c. Additional training in prevention and investigation of street crimes
d. Instituting proactive crime analysis
e. Specialized training and training expenses
f. Focus on public trust and establishing community oriented policing
g. Develop drug task force that combat the manufacture of synthetic drugs,
methamphetamine, prescription pills and
h. Develop early intervention programs for at risk children

8. If the Federal Government or the United Nations were to implement a policy.
of door to door gun confiscation in your jurisdiction, as a sheriff of Gilchrist
County, what action, of those listed below, would you choose?
a. Help them confiscate the guns
b. Interpose myself on behalf of the people to protect their right to keep and
bear arms
c. Not interfere one way or the other. A Sheriff has no authority to stop the
Federal Government from doing anything they want
d. I don't worry about such a scenario as it would never happen in America
Explain your answer: I believe that our second amendment right is the only thing
that keeps our and other governments from trampling our freedoms as Americans.
I also believe that the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the American
Government provide a system of checks and balances on leadership to deter such
flagrant intrusions.

9. What process will you use to hire personnel covered under the CBA?
a. Hiring personnel is one of the most important responsibilities for an organiza-
tion. It is the officer who provides the service to the citizens of Gilchrist County. A
detailed assessment of a candidate can reveal candidates with the, right law
enforcement aptitude and an ethical service oriented value, system. In addition
assessment centers have the ability to systematically manage simulated job related
situations that an officer would encounter in real life. A simulation titled "A Day in
-the Life of an Officer" would be evaluated by seasoned and trained evaluators
called "assessors". The assessment center process, can be an exact predictor of how
an officer will perform when on the job as a law enforcement officer.

10. What is your vision for communications and technology upgrades in the
Sheriff's Office?
a. Provide Internal Radio Communication and Interoperability with First
Responders
b. Wireless access in patrol vehicles in order to operate computer aided dispatch
c. Geographic Information Software (GIS)
d. Distant learning and computer based training
e. Enhanced 911 systems with text and voice capabilities

11. We all understand the power of the Sheriff and we all have heard about law
enforcement officials that abuse their power. How will you keep your authority
and power in check?
a. I will keep my authority in check by first managing my ego and putting the
interest of the GCSO before my own. With a service oriented philosophy I will
serve the people first while practicing personal humility and professional will.

12. If I were given the opportunity of obtaining a Federal Grant that would
fund the Construction of a new jail and new administrative offices, I would jump
at that in a heartbeat.
a. True
b. False
Explain: Only after properly evaluating the scope of the grant, conducting a needs
assessment and weighing out the long term effects. Grants come with a tremen-
dous amount of strings attached and often require you to have policies and proce-
dures similar to the federal standard.

13. The most important thing I can do as sheriff is:
a. Keep my oath to the people to protect their constitutional rights
b. Reduce the crime rate within my jurisdiction
c. Stop drug trafficking and drug abuse
d. Work with all Federal, and local agencies to combat crime and keep the peace
Explain: While I feel it is extremely important to keep my oath to the people and
protect their constitutional rights, I equally feel it is important to reduce crime,
stop drug traffickers and work with our federal partners. I believe in the system of
our government in the United States of America. I believe in the government of
the people, by the people, and for the people.

The questions listed are only 13 of the 30 questions asked of the sheriff candidates.

LOG CABIN (UILTERS


Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, June 28, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. We were all delight-
ed to see Evelyn Etheridge and her
daughter, Brenda, who had stopped
by for a visit. Mrs. Etheridge is one
of the original members of the group.
She celebrated her 90th birthday last
month. They had lunch with us and
she was able to catch up on things
while she quilted with the group.
My baby quilt is coming along. All
I have to do is attach the rows so the
seams match, get the designs going
in the same direction and make sure


the rows are put together in the right
order. It isn't as easy as it sounds.
You pin the seams together and you
just know the seams match. Stitch
across the seams, take the pin out and
go find the seam ripper so you can do
this process one more time. I have
one row to attach and I'll be ready to
get the quilt sandwiched. I've de-
cided to hand tie thread .instead of
quilting by hand or machine. I don't'
know how that is done either. If I
can learn, so can you. The baby quilt
is small and can be. done is a short
amount of time.
Next Thursday, the quilters should

Watson hired as new


Chamber director
By Carrie A. Mizell
Patricia Cribbs Watson, a Gilchrist County native, has been hired as the
new executive director of the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce.
After reviewing applications, members of the board of directors of the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce decided earlier this month to
hire Watson.
''I am looking forward to being back home," Watson said on Tuesday.
A High Springs resident, Watson is a 1977 graduate of Trenton High
School who became a certified meeting planner in 2006. Her work
experience includes 17 years at the American Society for Metabolic &
Bariatric Surgery in Gainesville, where she started out as an executive
assistant. As an executive assistant she handled accounting tasks and
worked as a membership coordinator while planning and managing
executive council meetings. In 2000, Watson's position changed to
convention manager. As such, she worked to assist with the planning
and development of educational content of conferences. She not only
coordinated topics and presenters but she also developed and managed the
company's tradeshow, saw to catering needs and oversaw the development
of promotional items such as advertising and brochures. In 2002, Watson
was named the company's convention director. In this position, Watson
began setting goals and objectives, planning program content, establishing
a budget, and negotiating contracts.
Watson will begin working for the Gilchrist County Chamber of
Commerce near the end of July.

Idle-speed, no-wake zone on Santa Fe River


A 32-mile segment of the Santa Fe
River is now an idle-speed, no-wake
zone, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) officials.
The FWC applied the boating re-
strictions to Zone 5, which runs from
River Rise in O'Leno State Park,
west to the confluence of the Suwan-
nee River, because of rising water
levels from Tropical Storm Debby.
This area of the river becomes an
idle-speed, no-wake zone when the
Santa Fe River reaches 17 feet above
mean sea level at the Three Rivers
gauge, where flood stage is 19 feet.
"The Santa Fe reached 17.16 feet
today," said Capt. Martin Redmond,
area supervisor at the FWC's Lake
City office.
An idle-speed, no-wake zone
means a vessel must proceed at a
speed no greater than that required
to maintain steerage and headway.
At no time is any vessel required to
proceed so slowly that the operator is
unable to control it or anything it may
be towing.
FWC officers will patrol this area
of the river to ensure the idle-speed,
no-wake zone is enforced, Redmond
said.
"Water levels on the Suwannee and
Santa Fe rivers can fluctuate rapidly,
creating for unsuspecting boaters
navigational hazards, such as floating
debris, submerged rocks and stumps
and new shoaling conditions. We
want everyone to be safe," Redmond
said.
The idle-speed, no-wake zone stays
in effect until the water level recedes
below 17 feet.
The other four zones are:
Zone 1 from the U.S. 90 Bridge
at Ellaville south to the State Road
51 Bridge at Luraville. This 39-mile
segment becomes an idle-speed, no-
wake zone when the Suwannee River
reaches 47 feet or more above mean
sea level at the Ellaville gauge, where


The Santa Fe near Fort White at the 47 Bridge crested at an unofficial stage of 32.24. This was the highest
stage since 1998.


flood stage is 54 feet.
Zone 2 from the S.R. 51 Bridge
at Luraville to Little River Spring.
This 18-mile segment becomes an
idle-speed, no-wake zone when the
Suwannee River reaches 26 feet or
more above mean sea level at the
Branford gauge, where flood stage is
29 feet.
Zone 3 from Little River Spring
to the County Road 340 Bridge at
Rock Bluff. This 23-mile segment
becomes an idle-speed, no-wake zone
when the Suwannee River reaches 24
feet or more above mean sea level at
the Branford gauge.
Zone 4 from the C.R. 340 Bridge


at Rock Bluff to one mile below the
Fowler Bluff Boat Ramp. This 51-
mile segment will be an idle-speed,
no-wake zone when the Suwannee
River reaches 9 feet or more above
mean sea level at the Wilcox gauge,
where flood stage is 11 feet.

Flood damage?

Gilchrist County residents who are
experiencing property or roadway
damage due to flooding from Tropical
Storm Debby are asked to call David
Peaton at (386) 935-5406 as soon as
possible.


Public boat

ramps close

Submitted
Public safety officials in Gilchrist,
Levy and Dixie counties are asking.
citizens not to use public boat ramps.
Rising floodwaters are\ expected
to be impacting our local river
communities and boaters are asked
to keep their speeds slow to reduce
the impact on homes. Boaters should
expect to see an increased patrol by
FWC during the weekend holiday.

THE FINAL CORRECTED DRAFT OF OUR DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE

The fifty-six men who signed the Declaration of Independence after pledging to each other, "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred

honor," all knew and had every reason to believe they could well be hanged for placing their names on this document for all to see.
This was undeniably and indisputably a most courageous act which we should all remember on this Fourth of July.

Just imagine what our country would be like today if the majority of our nationally elected political leaders could exhibit just a

small amount of this courage by simply. doing their job of representing the people rather than spending the bulk of their time, their

energy, and our money on posturing themselves on how best to get re-elected. As we watch our Constitution being trampled on, the
rule of law being tossed in the trash can and attempts at intimidation of our Supreme Court by certain political leaders; we must

never forgot what these brave men did 236 years ago today.
