Suwannee River Fair


ma:


a new home


By Carrie A. Mizell
Imagine sitting at the 2013 Suwan-
nee River Fair and watching youth
from throughout the tri-county area
show their' animals from the comfort
of a chair backed seat in a brand-new
air-conditioned facility.
Sounds like a dream, right?
Maybe not.
Suwannee River Fair President
Loran Brookins approached the Fan-
ning Springs City Council last week
to ask that building permit fees for
a new facility be waived, The city
council granted Brookins' request
and waived their portion-of the per-
mit fees, which is roughly 20, per-
cent of the total cost, but because
the municipality is so small the, city
subcontracts their building depart-
ment services with Florida Munici-
pal Services, a Homosassa-based
company. Brookins was told by the
Fanning Springs City Council that he
would need to petition Walt Brown of .
Florida Municipal Services to see if
the company would also waive their
portion of the building permit fees
for the local youth fair, which were
estimated at $8,800.
SAccording to Brookins, the An-
derson family of Dixie County ap-
proached the Suwannee River. Fair
about building a new metal pavilion


for the Suwannee River Fair.
Construction of a new 1,500 seat
facility would mean that the current
facility, which was reportedly built
sometime around 1952 would need
to be torn down to make room for the


new facility.
"I am in the process of seeing if we
can get. this done," Brookins said. "I
have until the 15th of July to let the
Andersons know if it's possible."
If Brookins can secure all the per-


mits and get the cooperation of the
county commissioners in Gilchrist,
Levy and Dixie counties then it
would mean a state of the art metal
building would be constructed before
the 2013 Suwannee River Fair.


SVL 10U baseball team wins first ever

Florida Small League State Championship

Submitted
-The SVL (Suwannee Valley/Gil-
christ League) 10U Cal Ripken Base-
ball's Red Lightning team has captured
the league's first ever Florida Small
League State Championship. .
The State Championship was hosted
by Ft. White and Cal Ripken/ Babe
Ruth Baseball with teams qualifying
and competing from all over the state. '
In opening pool play games, SVL
defeated Branford 13-2 behind superb
pitching from starter Wyatt Langford, i-. -
with Jacob Guthrie coming on in relief,
and Levi Ferguson getting the save.
Next up was Jacksonville Lake
Shore, which SVL handled 9-3 behind
great defense and pitching from Jason
DeMartino, Colton Hastings, Wyatt A -
Thornton, and Parker Ferguson.
Dundee Ridge was then handed an
.8-3 loss, advancing SVL to the cham-
pionship bracket; Thornton, Ferguson,
and Wyatt Rutgerson, again led the
team on the mound.
For the semi-finals, the Red Light-
ning won by a score of 20-6 over La-
fayette behind a fantastic outing by
Hastings, who came on in early relief
of Langford, advancing to the state fi-
nals. The Red Lightning then topped
MSA Jacksonville 12-2, behind a
complete game performance from
DeMartino.

12 Rotary District 6940 President, gives the Oath of Office to Ed

Philman sworn


in as Rotary's


District Governor


By Carrie A. Mizell
After 23 years serving as Gilchrist
County's judge, Ed Philman
will retire later this year and turn
his focus to serving as District
Governor for Rotary District 6940.
Philman was sworn-in last
week after serving as an assistant
governor for three years. During.
his time as an assistant governor,
Philman underwent training before
he could be named district governor
for the year 2012-2013..
I will be speeding up in my
retirement, rather than slowing
down," Philman said.
A member of the Trenton Rotary
Club for 31 years, Philman will
now serve over 50 Rotary clubs
that make up District 6940, which
stretches throughout North Central
Florida, as well as the Panhandle.
As district governor, Philman will
work to provide leadership and


motivation as he; visits each of the
Rotary clubs in the district during
his tenure.
Rotary's theme for the year will
be "Peace Through Service."
With this year's theme in mind,
Philman plans to encourage
each- Rotary club in the district
to place special focus on new
generations, group study exchange,
membership and the foundation,
while continuing with Rotary's
commitment to the world and End
Polio Now.
Philman remembers joining
the trenton Rotary Club in 1981
because he felt like Rotary was
doing a lot of good in the world, as
well as in local communities.
It's not hard to ascertain why
Philman is so passionate about
Rotary, both the organization
and the man operate under the
principle: "Service above self."

County officials begi


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
began budget workshops on Monday,
July 9 in preparation for the 2012-13
county budget for the fiscal year.
Joe Gilliam, Gilchrist County
Clerk, reported to the commission
during the July 2 meeting that
Gilchrist County's taxable value in
2011 was $602,704,144. Gilchrist
County's General Revenue 2012
value is $579,704,304, which is a
decrease of $22,999,840. Gilliam
explained the present rate of 8.2695
is the rate that the county staff used
to prepare the 2012-2013 proposed
budget.
The ad valorem proceeds from
2011 at 8.2695 were $4,867,239. The


ad valorem proceeds from 2012 at a
rate of 8.2695 are $4,793,865 which
is a decrease of $73,374.
A rollback rate of 8.4693 would
provide the General Revenue budget
with $4,909,690 which would be an
increase- of $115,825.
The Commission discussed a
series of dates for upcoming budget
workshops that will be advertised
and held in July and August. The
Gilchrist County Commission will
hold their tentative budget hearing
the first meeting in September and
their final budget hearing will be the
second meeting in September.
Last week, the commissioners
talked about salary increases that were
submitted by constitutional officers


n budget z
for the 2012-13 fiscal year. Gilchrist
County Sheriff Daniel Slaughter
requested a 3 percent increase for
staff, which was requested by the
Police Benevolent Association. No
other agencies had reported a request
for salary increases going into the
budget planning meetings.
Charlie Perez, Gilchrist County
Tea Party President, addressed the
Commission to request the board
activate a salary step plan "that
Gilchrist County had implemented
prior to 2009.
Perez explained the step plan would
provide Gilchrist County Emergency
personnel with a 6 percent pay
increase.
"I think the step pay plan needs


workshops
to be funded and put back into the
budget, especially for emergency
personnel," Perez explained.
Jackie Johnson, Finance Director
for Gilchrist County, reported the
step plan would have provided a 4
percent annual salary increase for
county employees. She explained that
Gilchrist County employees received
a 2 percent step pay increase in 2008
and 2 percent step increase in 2009.
The Gilchrist County Commission
has also provided a 2 percent cost of
living increase each year since 2009
for county employees.
The Commission took no action on
any salary increases or other budget
matters during the July 2 county
meeting.


Boating restrictions
lifted on Sunday
When Suwannee River floodwaters
at Wilcox fell below 9 feet Sunday,
FWC deactivated boating restrictions
in Zone 4.
Zone 4 is a 51-mile section from
the County Road 340 Bridge at Rock
Bluff to one mile below the Fowler
Bluff boat ramp.
"Even though the restrictions have
been lifted .on this zone, we highly
recommend people avoid boating on
the Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers un-
til normal conditions and water levels
return. There are many navigational
hazards along the rivers at this time,"
Redmond said.
Dangers include floating debris,
submerged navigational hazards and
extremely strong currents.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, JULY 12, 2012


Sometimes good things just hap-
pen; we just have to be paying atten-
tion to harvest the bounty.
After our spring garden was plant-
ed and growing well, my husband
John noticed several volunteer toma-
to plants. The plants were growing
so good that John transplanted them
and surrounded them with some fresh
compost and a lot of attention.
The plants have thrived in a shady
part of the garden and- produced
hundreds of perfect .round tomatoes
about the size,of a quarter. The truth
is, they are still growing and bloom-
ing and producing more and more of
the tasty red fruit.
John staked them with five foot
tomato stakes and then some weeks,
later he added. another stake above
the first one using some zip ties. Our
"Jack and the Bean Stalk" tomatoes
were reaching for the sky well above
the first stake at that time. After they
grew so high that a ladder was needed
to continuously tie them to the stake
John gave it up and just let them fall
over and grow toward the ground.
Well,, they did grow back. to the
ground and now they have turned on
their own and started heading upward
again, bearing tomatoes all the way
up, all the way down and about three
feet upward. At this point the tomato
vines are 17 feet tall and don't show
any signs of going back.
I think I'll save some seeds from
.these tomatoes as they are about
the most rambunctious 'plants in the
place. The tomatoes bear in pods or
hands with 8 to 12 tomatoes on each
hand. 'Several years ago I ordered
some heirloom seeds and I'm pretty,
sure these plants are volunteers from
those orginals. -
Like a lot of other fruits and veg-
etables, the tomatoes found in the
store don't seem to have much flavor
these days. About the only tomatoes
in the store with some flavor a4petbq,
small grape tomatoes. ,
9.e, fp,,lUPw.in&g recipe could, .be.
made from grape tomatoes. The ba-
nana peppers came from some plants.
a friend had given us and the balloon
pepper came from a plant purchased


in the spring at the Alachua County
Farmers Market. This was our first
time growing a Balloon Pepper and
as they developed and turned bright
red, their flavor also developed and
they became quite tasty, but not'hot.
* We were having fried grouper over
the weekend and I came up with the
following tomato salad recipe using
produce I had on hand, fresh from the
garden. The salad was a great side
dish for the,fish and I will make it
again. The.trick is making the salad
six hours or so ahead of time so it can
marinate.




2 cups grape or small tomatoes, ,
cut in half
1/4 cup banana pepper or
bell pepper, chopped fine
1/4 cup white sweet onion,
chopped fine

Put all ingredients in bowl with a
lid, or in a zip top bag and toss.

To make the dressing, combine:

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
or vinegar of choice
1/4 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
2 tablespoons of cane syrup or
honey

Put all ingredients in a Mason Jar
with a lid and shake until incorpo-
rated well. Pour the dressing over-
the tomatoes and toss well. Let the
salad marinate in fridge for six hours.
About every hour or so toss the toma-
toes again.
If you want to add a little extra to
this salad you could add a half cup
cubed "Wainwright Dairy PeR-
per Jack Cheese just before serving.
Wainwright Dairy is located in Live
Oak and their pepper jack is a very
good, local, all-natural farm-fresh
cheese. The cheese can be found lo-
cally at Scaff's in Bell.

Suwannee Farms, an agriculture
operation that produces cattle, vege-
tables, and forage crops in Suwannee
County, is dedicated to reducing nu-
trient losses to the environment while
conserving water in the process.
The farm is participating in a three-
year study to determine the effects of
nutrient recycling on its operation.
The study is evaluating nutrient im-
ports to the farm such as manure,
feed and fertilizer and nutrient
exports such as crop products and
beef that leave the farm, atmospheric
loss, and nutrients that might leach
into groundwater. Soil, crops, and
water are analyzed for nutrient con-
centrations all to determine how
efficiently those nutrients are being.
utilized on the farm and the potential
for nutrients to be lost to the environ-
ment.
The study was initiated in 2009
by the Suwannee River partnership
(SRP) and is being led by the Univer-
sity of Florida /Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences (UF/IFAS).
Funding is provided by the Suwan-
nee River Water Management Dis-
trict (District), UF/IFAS, the Florida
'Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services (FDACS), the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP), and Suwannee Farms.
Now in its final year, the study will
determine' the effects of besi man-

used on the farm and how these prac-

"This study is a positive step to-

ment and protecting water quality,"
said Hugh Thomas, SRP coordinator.
"It also has the added benefit of con-
serving water."
Building nutrients and organic
matter in soils allows the soils to hold

I Are We Alone In The Universe?
(Kent Heaton)I


Over four hundred years ago' Galileo Galilei turned the
invention of Hans Lipperhey to the heavens and the
mysteries of our universe began to be revealed. The
telescope brought the miracle-of space to the inhabitants of -
earth in a way never imagined- before. Through the
centuries man has continued the quest to reach out as far
into space as possible. With technology soaring to the
heights of man's imagination a clearer picture and vision
of the outer world has been drawn to the inquisitive search
for life. Instruments dot the planet in every imaginable
place to hear some faint message of a far off civilization.
Powerful telescopes pierce the night skies seeking signs of
life beyond the planets. Satellites hurl through the void of
space collecting data looking and listening for the echo of
an alien presence. With all the vast array of incredibly
powerful instruments at man's disposal, why has no trace
of life been found of a new civilization? Because there is
none.
The question has been asked for generations, "Are we
alone in the universe? Without a great deal of fanfare the
answer quietly whispers in return, "Yes "! The answer is as
old as the world and has been revealed to man in every
generation. In the first days of man's dwelling upon the
earth he decided to build a "tower whose top is .in the
heavens; let us make a name for ourselves" (Genesis
11:4). The tower of Babel was a colossal mistake and the
result of man's pride. It concerned the Lord enough to say,
"Nothing that they propose to do will be withheld from
them" (Genesis 11:6). As a result God confused the
language of the people and the work stopped. "Therefore
its name is called Babel, because there the Lord confused
the language of all the earth; and from there the Lord


scattered them abroad over the face of all the earth"
(Genesis 11:9).
This tells us that God has placed man within the
habitation spoken of by Paul in Acts 17:26 "And He has
made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all
the face of the earth, and has determined their
preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings,
so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they
might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far
from each one of us." Everyone on earth if of one blood
and we are put here to "dwell" upon the earth. Our "times"
and "boundaries" are appointed by God and they cannot
be changed. Man lives within the vacuum of his own
environment that is determined by God.
As a young boy in the 1960s I Would hear of the days
when man would live in the oceans and on far off planets.
Those were the days of modem exploration yet they were
based on the false premise that'man can live anywhere.
God has determined that man can only survive in the world
made for man's earthly journey Earth! But then that is the
subject of the relationship of God and man Earth.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not
perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His
Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the
world through Him might be saved" (John 3:16-17). Did
Jesus die for a civilization on another planet? According to
the Bible the only people Jesus died for are those found on
the third rock from the Sun. Paul told the Athenians that
our purpose in life is "seek the Lord" and we can find Him
not in space but in the book right before our eyes the
Bible. Open it and you find God.

GILCHRIST COUNTY AND THE FUTURE
Gilchrist County has a lot of empty and for sale homes. During the recession we have lost about 3% of
our residents between the ages of 20-39. These are some of our prime "workers" and have been lost to
our local workforce. Some may have moved to other areas or states that offered better job opportunities.
Losing these families not only hurts our local businesses; it costs our school system dollars as students
transfer out.
The recession will end. The question is what can we do as.a county to be ready to move forward when it does?
How can we effectively use our river coast, springs, and campgrounds to attract visitors who will spend dollars in
our local businesses?
How do we attract more doctors and medical facilities to Gilchrist County?
What can our county and cities do in a cooperative effort to leverage our uniqueness and entice guests to visit and
support local businesses?
How can we encourage and support our small farmers and young farmers to consider organic fanning? How about
blueberries or blackberries? How about a farm cooperative to market this produce?
How can we use the expertise of the University of Florida, Florida Gateway College and St. Leo to attract small
businesses that can create jobs and support and maintain our rural lifestyle?
How about hiring g professional "planner" to work with Hart Springs, Otter Springs, and the Ag Center to attract
events that bring in visitors and dollars to our county?
How can we support our residents who want to promote agri-tourism?
How about a sports complex that would provide facilities for our local youth, but also provide an opportunity to
stage large athletic events?
How do we attract a 200 room hotel/motel to Gilchrist County?
Not any of these can be created in an instant. These, are projects that take time and planning and hard work.
But if we are to expand opportunities for our businesses and jobs for our citizens we have to start somewhere.
Buddy Vickers has the education, experience, and desire to serve Gilchrist County. He sees an opportunity
where others see a probleri. Buddy enjoys tough challenges and will work hard to help our county and its
people. He is an independent thinker and has no obligation to anyone except the people of Gilchrist County.

EADY-WIL SON
" -CCerk of Circuit Court


Over the past nine years I have had the privilege to serve under
two very capable Clerks of the Circuit Court's, the Honorable Danny Shipp in Levy County for four years I
and the Honorable Joseph Gilliam in Gilchrist County for the past five years to the present.
During this time I have gained invaluable knowledge and experience from these gentlemen that will
serve me well in the position of Clerk of the Circuit Court. If I am elected Clerk I will strive to bring the
same knowledge and experience to the position as well as keeping an open mind to new and perhaps bet-
ter ways that might present themselves.
The excellent and business leadership that our county has had and deserved over the past sixteen
years will be continued if I am elected.. This type of quality leadership can only be achieved with a dedi-
cated and knowledgeable staff to assist the Clerk such as I have had the privilege to work with.
I respectfully request your support and vote in the upcoming election.
Thank you, Verna Mae

Approximately 70 children enjoyed a visit from the Trenton EMS and Bell Fire Truck on Thursday during
the Florida Library Youth Program.

Gilchrist County Public Library News
The Gilchrist County Public Library hosted a successful turnout for the Florida Library Youth. Program with ap-
proximately seventy children attending on Thursday morning.
The library was privileged to have thq Trenton EMS and a fire truck from Bell here. Ashley, an EMT and Jarad, a
paramedic, brought the ambulance. Captain Myra and Justin, a firefighter/EMT, came with the fire truck. We certainly
appreciated the way these four people accommodated the young children, allowing them to "tour" both vehicles.
Cookie the Clown did a part on safety which fit right in.
Jennifer Geiger did the "Bingo" song with a huge dog in costume. It was actually worn by Kailob Rehberg who
did a-great job!! Jennifer also read a book and was assisted by "Bingo" and "Dragonella" played by Terri McIntyre.
All our volunteers had fun assisting.
After the program, Domino's Pizza delivered pizza and the children had drinks, fruit cups, and cookies. It was a
fun hour.
This week will be another fun time on Thursday, July 12th at 10:30 a.m. with Geddy the Gecko, Cookie the Clown,
and a sing-along puppet show. Then we'll all eat lunch. We hope we will be joined by many more children.

performance
Submitted
Suwannee Valley Players will hold
auditions for their fall production
of "Cry of the Banshee" on July
14 at 10 a.m. and July 17 at 7 p.m.
All auditions are held at the Chief
Theater. This will be a cold read for
the directors.
"Cry of the Banshee" is a spine-
tingler adapted from the classic Poe
film story that starred Vincent Price
and Elizabeth Bergner. In 16th
century Ireland, a cruel Lord Edward
Whitman seeks.to destroy the' banshee
cult' of a powerful witch, but she puts
a curse on his family. Generations
later, Whitman Manor 'has been
moved stone by stone to America
and the last of the family, a young
brother and sister, seek to escape the
curse. But stalking the house, even
in modem times, is an ancient spirit
or sidhe, a thing 'that can never die,
which has taken on human form. Its
name is Roderick, and he has 'no idea
that he isn't a man of flesh and blood.
Also, he's in love with the sister,

The Happy Days Old Tyme Soda
Fountain is a vintage soda fountain
and ice cream parlor located inside
the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe.
The soda fountain is open for busi-
ness Monday through Saturday from
10 a.m. until 4 p.m.
Theresa Gentry and Jessica Scho-'
field are pictured behind the soda
fountain. These two ladies are former
"soda jerks" who served many Tren-
ton customers at this fountain in its
heyday. In front of the soda fountain
are Stephanie'Metts, owner of the Su-
wannee Valley Quilt Shoppe and Lar-
ry Diaz, owner of Best Drugs. When
Walgreens recently purchased Best
Drugs, these two individuals teamed
up to preserve an important pait of
Trenton's rich history. The marble
counters, which were manufactured
by Robert M. Green and Sons in the
1920s, and the Soda Fountain, which
is a Bastian-Blessing "All Dry Supe-
rior Bobtail" manufactured 62 years
ago in July of 1950, were moved to
the Quilt Shoppe in mid April and
carefully restored over the past two
months. One of the interesting his-
torical facts about Trenton's soda
fountain counter is that it was made
by Robert M. Green who is the man
credited with inventing the ice cream
soda in 1874 during the 150th an-
niversary celebration' in Philadel-
phia, Pennsylvania. The counter still
proudly displays Robert M. Green's
original manufacturer's nameplate.
The ice cream soda quickly became
very popular, to. such a degree that
it was almost socially obligatory
among teens, although many adults
abhorred it. According to some ac-
counts, it was banned, either entirely
or on holy days, by some local gov-
ernments, giving rise to a substitute
treat, the sodaless "Ice Cream Sun-
dae", which was a name coined by
soda fountains for the ice cream con-
coctions that they served on "Soda's
Day of Rest."
The birth of the soda fountain be-
gan with the drug revolution of the
1850's. Many of the fountain drinks
made by those early druggists con-
tained cocaine and caffeine. The com-
bination of cocaine and caffeine was
used to effectively cure headaches.
The problem was that rebound head-
aches would ensue and the customer
would be back frequently for another.
drink to get rid of the pain. The soda
fountain was really a place to go to
get some "pep'."Doctors, druggists


Stephanie Metts, owner of the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe, is shown with Theresa Gentry and Jessica
Schofield, both of whom were soda jerks at one time and Larry Diaz, longtime owner of Best Drugs. ,


and the public at large believed that
stimulants were very good. These
.new drugs were looked upon as com-
pletely safe and effective. Prior to
1914 every drug was basically "over
the counter" so no soda fountain
broke any law by selling cocaine de-
rived drinks. That all changed when
the HarrisonAct became law in 1914.
The Harrison Act banned the use of
Cocaine and opiates in over-the-coun-
ter products.
Soda drinks began to be viewed as
"habit forming" and eventually be-
came looked down upon. The "soda
fountain" developed a reputation
for serving intoxicating beverages.
Many pharmacies began to distance
themselves' from the bad reputa-
tion that developed as result of the
"habit forming" products sold from
the 1860s through the early 1900s.
Jacob Baur, founder of the Liquid
Carbonic Company, used the follow-
ing in an advertisement for one of his
sodas, "it isn't medicinal, won't cure
anything... isn't intoxicating or habit


forming it's just flavor, fruity,
snappy, sparkling, delicious." It is in-
teresting to note that a soda fountain
would advertise as "isn't habit form-
ing or intoxicating." The soda foun-
tain eventually lost the old reputation
and became known for serving "soft
drinks".
It was a common sight to see a
soda fountain in one of Trenton's
downtown drugstores .from the early
1900s until only a few decades ago.
Dr. Lancaster's Drug Store, which
opened around 1910, was home to
Trenton's first soda fountain. Dr. May
acquired Dr. Lancaster's operation
and opened his drug store at a spot
further north on Main Street along
with many of the old wooden display
cases and the marble soda fountain
counter. Dr. May sold his store to Mr.
A.B. Rogers, who actually purchased
a brand new Bastian-Blessing "All
Dy& Superior Bobtail" soda fountain
when he built and opened his new
drug store in 1950 at the current loca-
tion of Best Drugs. Rogers later sold


his drug store to Victor and Helen
Shipley, who ran it from 1972-1978.
The store reverted back to Rogers,
who then sold the building to Larry
and Beverly Diaz, the present own-
ers. The Pharmacy continued to sell
ice cream and sodas after the move
until about 1982-83. Theresa Gentry
started working there in 1980 and
during her early years, she became
very familiar with the operation of
the soda fountain. Many current res-
idents have family ties to Trenton's
rich drug store history, such as Dr.
Lancaster's granddaughter, Diana
Harrison; Dr. Lancaster's great neph-
ew, Howell Lancaster; and A.B: and
Mittie Rogers' son Bill Rogers and
grandsons Bill and Chris Rogers.
The popular memory of the soda
fountain is an idyllic one, of a place
where soda "jerks" mingled with
starry-eyed teens on dates and kids
were seeking a snack and a song after
school. But in the 1960s, the rising
popularity of fast food, commercial
ice cream, bottled soda, and restau-

Commission took action in their
July 2, 2012, meeting to pave a
roadway to an existing business
that has recently been purchased.
Bob Sturgis is the new owner
and operator of Ellie Ray's
Campground on the Santa Fe
River. Sturgis committed to' pave
the portion of NW 110th St from
his business west to US Highway
129 if Gilchrist County would
provide the limerock for the base.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to approve the
county providing the limerock
for the estimated one half mile
-of grade road to the business.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. agreed and gave a second to
the motion.. The Commission
discussed who would check and
review and make sure the work is
done properly.
Billy Cannon, Gilchrist County
Transportation Superintendent,
asked the Commission to
communicate with Lee Mills to
oversee the project. ,
Bob Sturgis agreed to take care

of the expenses for Lee Mill's work
if he would agree to be involved in
this project.
"We want to make sure this
road is done right," explained Bob
Sturgis.
The Commission approved this
project by a unanimous vote.
Superintendent Cannon
explained to the board there is
a drain pipe on this road that
needs to be corrected before the
paving begins. The Commission
agreed to have the Transportation
Department. repair this problem
before the limerock is put into
place. The Commission also
'listened as Cannon asked the board
to consider allowing rumble strips
be put into place approaching a 90
degree curve on CR 319 east of
Trenton. Cannon explained that the
property owner north of the curve,
Frank Colson reported that people
are not slowing down approaching
this curve and are running off of
the road and through his fence.
The Commission approved the
installation of rumble strips on CR
319 approaching the curve from
the west and from the south.
