Cattle con artist arrested in Mexico


By Carrie A. Mizell
Deputy U.S. Marshals arrested a
fugitive on July 10 accused of stealing
-$178,000 in proceeds from the sale
of steers at the 2012 Suwannee River
Fair.
Ronald Shepard was taken into
federal custody last week after being
located in a small fishing village in
Mexico. Shepard was extradited to
the United States of July 10 and is
now being held in a federal detention
facility in Benton, Illinois. Shepard
will be presented to a federal judge
regarding his pending violation
of probation on a former federal


charge.
Lt. Scott Tummond of the Levy,
County Sheriff's, Office said on
Monday that the Levy County
Sheriff's Office is currently in the
process of filing detainers with the
federal government to extradite
Shepard to Levy County.
The Suwannee River Fair Board
had to take out a loan in May so
officials could write checks to pay
the youth who showed steers at the
2012 fair for their animals.
. Larry Lindsey, owner of Lindsey
Cattle Company, had won, the bid to
purchase the steers at the Suwannee


River Fair on March 20. Lindsey
contracted with Ron Shepard to pick
up and deliver the cows to United
Producers Inc. in Illinois.
Everything seemed to be going
fine until Shepard did not return to
Florida with the money for the sale
of the cows.'
Investigators were able to
determine that Shepard made the
delivery and received a check from
United Producers, Inc. for the amount
of $200,000.21, which included all
of the steers from the Suwannee
River Fair and 17 steers Lindsey had
purchased at the Okeechobee County


Fair on March 17, and taken to his
farm near Hart Springs. Afterftaking
possession of the check, Shepard
disappeared. Federal authorities had
searched for Shepard for months
prior to him turning up in Mexico.
Shepard not only scammed Lindsey.
and the Suwannee Riv'er Fair, but also
reportedly stole millions of dollars
worth of cattle in Arkansas, Illinois,
Missouri, Kentucky and Texas.
Lt. Scott Tummond said Shepard
will eventually be returned to Levy
County to face local charges, but he
will first face charges in Illinois.
"We're on the list, but we're not at


the top," Lt. Tummond said.
With assistance from the federal
government, Lt. Tummond 'said he
hopes that officials will be able to
locate where Shepard has hidden all
the money he has stolen, so that the
Suwannee River Fair may see. some
restitution.
-Suwannee River Fair President
Loran Brookins said on Monday
that Ron Shepard does not owe the
Suwannee River Fair anything. It
was Larry Lindsey who signed his
name to purchase the steers and that
is who the Suwannee River Fair will
be seeking restitution from.


School district is


#2 in the state

Trenton and Bell elementaries are A schools


By Carrie A. Mizell
, After being ranked fifth in the state
of Florida last year, the Gilchrist
County School District is now the
#2 school district in the state. School
district officials also learned last
week that both Trenton Elementary
School and Bell Elementary School
received an "A" school grade.
Trenton High School and Bell
High School .are awaiting their
school grade, which will be pending
until school grades are released by
the Florida Dbpartment of Education
in December.
"The success we have had in
Gilchri st County isjust unbelievable,"
said Superintendent Don Thomas. "'I
continue to be shocked over just how
well our students do."
When comparing apples to apples,
the superintendent pointed out that
the #1 school district in the state, St.
Johns County, has 21.97 percent of
its students on free/reduced lunch,
compared to the Gilchrist County
School District where 62.48 percent
of the student population is on free/
reduced lunch.
"We continue to pro% e that students
who are economically disadvantaged
can learn," said Rick Reed, principal
of Bell High School.
Though the high school grades are
not in, school district administrators
say Gilchrist County is on track to
be an A school district once again.
This year will mark the lith year that,
all Gilchrist County schools have
been graded A or B schools. Despite
tougher assessments as Florida
continues efforts to Iraise school
performance, students at \ all the
county's four schools performed well
on standardized tests this year. The
state's school grades were calculated
using more rigorous standards and
,new achievement levels.
"This has been a year of
tremendous change for Florida's
students, teachers and schools," said

Commissioner of Education Gerard
Robinson. "Florida's economic future
depends on preparing our students for
success. The high standards we have
in place today will help our students
prepare for college, the workforce
and life. I am confident that we are on
the right path to prepare our students
to compete with the best in the nation
and around the world."
Despite the tougher standards, Bell
Elementary School Principal Sherry
Lindsey commented on Monday
that Gilchrist County has, "Risen
to the occasion to meet 'the new
challenges."'
Florida has raised expectations
for school grades five times in the
past ten years. The results show that
after an initial drop, school grades
improved consistently in the years
that followed. As Florida moves
toward implementing the Common
Core State Standards in 2014-15, the
progress seen over the next few years
will smooth the transition to the more
challenging standards.
"School grades are not everything,
but is shows me that our students are
learning and that they can compete
out there," said Lynette Langford,
principal of Trenton Elementary
School.' "Our teachers, kids and
parents have worked really hard."
This week, school district
administrators were meeting
to celebrate the great news that
Gilchrist County is the #2. school
district in the state. They were also
reviewing FCAT scores to identify
strengths and weaknesses for next
year. Superintendent Thomas said
he would like to acknowledge the
team of administrators who work to
see that every student in Gilchrist
County succeeds, along with all the
teachers and support staff at each of
the county's four schools.
"We're a team," Thomas said.
"We work together to motivate each
other."

Groundwater levels rebound

By Vanessa Fultz, SRWMD
Groundwater levels in most
regions within the Suwannee FE
River Water Management District __.
(District).have rebounded following
record rainfall, courtesy of tropical /

eastern and .extreme southern

Comments
By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter made a presentation to the
County Commission on Monday, July
9, identifying a draft proposal from
the Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial
Circuit. It seems the Gilchrist County
Courthouse is not secure enough and.
the Chief Circuit Judge is asking the
County Commissioners to step up the
security in the judge's chambers and
in the constitutional offices.
It would please me to no end to be
able to publish the entire draft pro-
posal, but the document that was pre-
sented to the Commission was taken
up at the end of the presentation. The
Sheriff explained that this informa-
tion was a draft and it was not public
information.
When I asked the Commission staff
for the information, I was directed to
the Clerk of Court. Joe Gilliam gave
me a copy of an e-mail with infor-
mation that he had received from an
Eighth Judicial Circuit Court admin-
istrator. The email stipulated that this
information involves a security draft
and it is not a public document.
Well, I beg to differ this point with
the Eighth Judicial Court Adminis-
trator's Office. If I had been in, that
meeting on Monday, the story would
have been printed in the July 12,
2012 edition. Since I wasn't, I will
just have to print the information that
I have received from the people who
were in the meeting.
I learn something new every day.
My experience involving public
documents is that all information dis-
cussed in a public meeting is there-
fore public information. It just so
happens that the proposed draft the
Sheriff discussed will not be made
public until the budgets are put in
place to secure the funds to hire three
more deputies for $80,000 plus each.
The sheriff made this request in a line
item addition to his proposed budget
for the 2012-13 fiscal year.
Every so often, a judge serving
in Gilchrist County gets a proposed
threat involving, a case that they
might have coming before them. At
that time the Chief Judge sends an
order requesting the County Com-
mission spend an incredible sum of
money to satisfy a judge's state of
mind that they are secure in this small
county courthouse. This is the 21st
Century, the judges serving the peo-
ple in this county and circuit should
know by now, ff. they..ffeel insecure
in their job, don't serve in Gilchrist
County; or secure the judge's office.
No one else in the courrthouse seems
to be under any kind of threat. I fail
to see why Gilchrist County needs
three more judicial security officers
in the courthouse at an estimated cost
of $250,000.

Those Accepted By The Lord
(Kent Heaton) I


,The key to man's relationship to the Lord has always
been whether the actions of man have been such to bring
approval from God. It has always rested on the grace and
mercy of God which is given without partiality. From the
beginfiing of man's creation the Lord has always made.
available the abundant blessings of His love in the
provisions of all man could ever need. In the garden of
Eden everything man needed was supplied and he lacked
nothing. Satan convinced man that he was unfulfilled and
needed to disobey the law prohibiting the eating of the tree
of knowledge. This was unacceptable to God and He
punished man. What was the key to happiness in the
garden? Man showing a lar and reverence for the Creator
and for man to live in a right manner. He failed on both
points.
Peter realized in his meeting with Cornelius (Acts 10)
that God had "granted to the Gentiles repentance of life"
(Acts 11:18). There was no partiality with God and the
Lord was seeking in every nation those who fear Him and
those who work righteousness (Acts 10:34-35). To be
"accepted by Him" shows the approval the Lord has to
those who seek to follow His will in spirit and truth (John
4:23). This can only come from those who fear the Lord in
honor by keeping His law and whose lives are guided by
the one truth (John 14:6).
Fearing God is to recognize who He is in every way. As
Creator He' alone can establish law and determine
boundaries. The failure of man came when he "exchanged
the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served
the creature rather than the Creator" (Romans 1:25).
The world does not fear God because they do not


recognize God for what He is and who He is. To be found
acceptable we must submit to the authority of Him who
made us and recognize that He holds our breath in His
hand (Daniel 5:23).
"Therefore we make it our aim,. Whether present or
absent, to be well pleasing, to Him. For we must all
appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one
may receive the things done in the body, according to
what he has done, whether good or bad. Knowing,
therefore, the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but
we are well known to God, and I also trust are well
known in your consciences" (2 Corinthians 5:9-11). Being
accepted of the Lord is clearly defined in this passage by
the knowledge of who God is and what He is. The terror of
the Lord persuades all men including ourselves and our
aim in life is to be "well known to-God."
Working righteousness is the manner through which we
engage in day to day living a walk of faith. Doing what is
right and just is the manner of life of the "beloved of God."
We are saved by works and faith (James 2:14-26). Peter
told the household of Cornelius; "whoever fears Him and
works righteousness is accepted by Him".(Acts 10:35).
Working righteousness is an active walk of faith guided by
the knowledge of who God is and what God will bless us
with. "Be faithful until death, and I will give you the
crown of life" (Revelation 2:10). The Lord has made all
the provisions for us as in the beginning. Like the garden of
Eden the choice will belong to man to either accept or
reject the grace of God. Fearing Him and living righteous
will grant one eternal life. Failing to fear God or walk in a
way of righteousness will only bring misery.

Be a well

informed voter
Dear Editor,
John Kennedy once said, "Ask
not what your country can do for
you. Ask what you can do for your
country." ',
It's about time to apply this to our
COUNTY. Gilchrist County has
the formidable task of attempting to
satisfy 17,000 plus citizens on ever
decreasing financial revenues, and
provide reasonable services.
Instead of exhausting all our
energies on how to circumvent a
policy, procedure or law, why don't
we see how we can embrace it,
institute it and test its worth?
Some candidates vying for public
office spend more time and effort
evading questions, providing canned
answers (which are repeated ad
nauseum) and promising what they
cannot provide.
Should we support them? I think
not!
Take a good hard look at those in
elected positions and those seeking
office. Vote for who you think WILL
help this County and has appropriate
concern. The present financial status
of this county is far better than many
and those in office now are due
serious consideration when planning
the future.
Don't approach the booth in a
negative fashion because an official
did not provide a special service for
YOU.
When was the last time you
VOLUNTEERED your services to
help the county, without wanting
monetary compensation, wanted a
special favor, or special treatment


in return? When was the last time
you attended a County Commission
meeting to see how government
works, rather than sitting at home
listening to gossip and forming
erroneous opinions? It's amazing
how increased attendance at the
commission meetings is only inspired
by the elections.
Be a well informed voter, not a
follower of someone who told you
what to do . . .
Remember, vote for who you think
will maintain the financial stability of
this county and pitch in and see if you
can help.

Do not waste
water
Dear Editor,
From the SRWMD meeting
Tuesday we learned that the Aquifer
monitor well near Trenton has gained
a bit of water, probably due to Debby
and Beryl. However, the reading and
chart are still at a historic low, so do
not be wasteful with water, over our
joy to have these current showers.
Much of the glorious flood on our
rivers will pass onto the Gulf and
only a small amount will recharge the
Aquifer. This is one reason wetlands
are protected from change, to allow
other places for rain to seep down
instead of flowing away.
At the meeting we heard from
a Suwannee County resident that
numerous sinkholes have opened,
even destroying many roads. This
is another way.to know the damage
water withdrawals have caused .for
when.water is pumped out it leaves
a cavern. Then rain wets the topsoil


Has everyone forgotten

about the tax payer?

I haven't.

eventually, the roof becomes heavy
and caves in, leaving a sinkhole
With Florida's, overpopulation
(doubled in last 40 years) we are now
paying the price for all that draining
that was and is done, such as draining
the Everglades way back. Keep in
mind that we are still in a drought as
average normal rainfall is a negative
18 inches for 2010 and '11. The 6
inches we have gained in '12 above
normal thru June mostly came in
May and June. Much of that is en
route to the Gulf.
So focus on water conservation
with every little task from brushing
teeth from a glass, to wash only full,
loads of stuff. The list goes on.

still upset

over local
music festival
By John M. Ayers
Local residents living in a north-
east Gilchrist County residential
neighborhood have once again aired
their grievances involving the Farm
to Family Music Festival.
Gilchrist County Commissioners
discussed the issue involving the mu-
sic festival that is held off of SR 47
in a residential subdivision owned by
Lowell Chesborough.
Residents who live near the resi-
dential subdivision told Commis-
sioners that concert promoters are
advertising a festival to be held in
September 2012.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Bobby Crosby explained that he had
not received an application for a Spe-
cial Use Permit for th,e September
festival.
The commission discussed, the
Farm to Family Music Festival and
explained that it was not in the orga-
nizers' best interest to advertise for an
upcoming festival without the proper
.Special Use Permit being approved
by Gilchrist County.
The Commission is expected to
hear from the promoters of the festi-
val in the near future.

turnout for the second week of the
four week summer program With
approximately 138 children and 70
parents attending.
Terri McIntyre and her volunteers
did a sing-a-long puppet show "Old
Mac Donald's Farm" and "Cookie
the Clown" was with us again and
will be with us for the duration of the
programs.
This week our program will be on
Africa-Culture with Carol Cohens
who performs all over Florida. Terri
and her volunteers will do a puppet
show based on the "Lion King"
songs and an African Folklore story
will be presented. After the program
the children will have lunch.
A great deal of time, effort, and
money is spent preparing these
programs so please take advantage of
them. Bring your children, whatever
age, and if some are not familiar with
the library, this is a good time to
acquaint them with it.

elected officials in our For
local election. The office Clerk of the
that I am seeking is the. .
Clerk of the Circuit Court. Circuit Court
As I have met the
citizens of Gilchrist
County, one prominent question-is asked of me: "How will I vote on a particular
issue?" The Clerk of the Court provides the checks and balances in county gov-
ernment by acting in the capacity as Clerk to the County Commissions, Clerk to
the Judicial Court System, Keeper of the Public Records, Internal Auditor and
Custodian of county funds but the Clerk of the Court has no voting
power on County issues. This right is reserved for our County Commis-
sioners.
Although the Clerk of the Circuit Court has no voting power, the magnitude of the
functions and duties the Clerk's Office performs make it essential that the actions
of the Clerk of the Court be accountable as the office is governed by statutory
authority. I continue to pledge that if elected, I will combine my 22+ years of con-
tinuous career progression along with my professional experience and knowl-
edge 'in information technology, leadership, budgeting and grant writing to con-
tinue accuracy, reliability, openness and transparency to the office of the Gilchrist

COMMUNITY*COMMITMENT*JUSTICE
Developing a true partnership with the community and reducing the crime rate of 77.4 % is the only
way I see the sheriff of Gilchrist County being successful. How can a sheriff build a foundation of
trust, respect and cooperation if the community members and their safety aren't your number one
priority? At this point in time Gilchrist County is at a tipping point, and if we don't band together and
target those individuals committing robbery, manufacturing drugs and trafficking drugs we will soon
witness what other larger counties are already dealing with. You may be wondering what factors are
influencing our rise in crime so I took the liberty to list a few of my concerns:
Inadequate number of deputies (public safety and putting more deputies in the community
is my number one priority)
Inadequate training for deputies in narcotics investigation and drug recognition
Resurgence of drugs like methamphetamines, heroine, and synthetic drugs like "Bath Salts"
Rising cost of prescription drugs (oxycodone is now $80.00 per pill)
According to Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, seven Floridians die each day to
prescription drug overdose
Increased robbery (finances drug addiction)
What is particularly alarming about Gilchrist County's emerging crime trend is that criminals are
getting bolder. For example, just weeks ago we had two thugs burglarize a home while the residents
were sleeping. It is time to sound the alarm; we can no longer afford to allow crime to creep into our
neighborhoods. I hate to dwell on the high crime rate but I simply want to know what other counties
are doing to have such huge drops in crime while our crime rate is soaring.
When elected, my mission is to leverage partnerships with area law enforcement agencies like Levy
and Dixie County and learn from their "Best Practices". In addition, I will. also partner with our local
schools, courts, corrections, and social services to become a force multiplier with the common goal
of identifying potential threats and reducing crime.
We cannot solve today's crime problem with yesterday's ideas.-As your sheriff I will bring in big
ideas to our small sheriff's office, I will strengthen our community, I will hold criminals accountable
and last but not least I will work hard for our citizens and hold myself accountable. Vince Lombardi
once said "1 firmly believe that any man's finest hour- this greatest fulfillment to all he holds dear- is
that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of
battle- victorious."
Citizens of Gilchrist County by electing me as your sheriff I will continue to work
my heart out for you so our community and our homes will always be our sanctuary. B
So on August 14, let's get to the polls and vote Gabriel Martin as your Republican
Sheriff Candidate.
Best Regards,
Gabriel Martin

Operating since 1985, ACHC is the only national health care accrediting organization started at the grass-roots'

City to reduce
rental fees at
Community
Center
By Cindy Jo Ayers
During last week's Trenton
City Commission meeting the
Commissioners voted 3-1 to reduce
the rental fees at the city's Community
Center and the Train Depot. The rental
rates will drop from $100 per event to
$50. The big change is that everyone
will be paying a rental fee. In the
past, non-profit and church groups
who rented the buildings rarely paid
a rental fee. In the future they will
have to. The change comes after city
staff discovered a $767.70 shortfall.
Apparently, it cost the city $2,080.70
to keep the community center open
for the year and rental fees received
added up to just $1,284.
The City Commissioners said they


wanted people to use the facility but
it needs to pay for itself. Everyone
will still be required to pay a security
deposit of $100, which will be
returned if the rules are followed.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey voted
no on reducing the rate and said,
"I feel like the citizens of Trenton
should have a discount."
Commissioner Arlene Wilks did
not attend the meeting.
Other action taken during last
week's meeting include putting the
Pines Estates Special Assessments
on the property tax bill. The city has
had a problem collecting back due
assessments on lots in Pines Estate
since the assessments began in 2004.
Some property owners paid the
assessment of $1,100 right away and
the rest were to pay the City $133.15
annually until the assessment was
paid. These special assessments
came after sewer and paved streets
were added to the subdivision at
the request of the property owners.
Property owners can look for the
property tax bills from the county
to increase by $113.15 on their
November 013 hill

Wise Women of the Drugstore Soda Fountain
My life has been inexplicably influenced by events that happened at the Drugstore Soda Fountain. Love, romance, and mystery are all part of
my story. It begins when I was a young child, and even though I thought it had ended 30 years ago it is still being woven into my life today. Three
women who made a great impact on my life share the experience of working at the drugstore soda fountain.
The first person was my English/literature teacher. She introduced herself to me on the first day of school in the 5th grade, and I didn't realize
she would have such a powerful influence on me until I had graduated with her uninterrupted guidance ending in the 12th grade. Oh the patience
she had to wrangle with an uncooperative boy, through those formative years --- and win! Mrs. Jessica Schofield, a wise woman, helped me
develop a learned mind, and holds a special place in my heart. Thank you.
The next person had an incalculable influence on my life. I was 28 years old, and went to the drugstore where I was greeted by a beautiful 23
year old woman whose charm and intrigues kept me returning to the soda fountain for refreshment, and a smile. We fell in love, and I asked her,
thirty years ago this month, to marry me. My wife, Theresa Gentry, a wise woman, gave me a heart to love. Theresa, my heart is yours: I love you.
At the very same soda fountain, now lovingly restored, and located at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe in Trenton, I will tell "The Rest of the
Story" about the wise women of the drugstore soda fountain, and the mystery of the third wise woman. (Also, I will print "The Rest of the Story" the
following week in the Gilchrist County Journal.)

Gilchrist County is a distinctly Southern locale, a place where cooperation and good
manners are valued in everyday life. But Gilchrist is growing and changing, even as the
counties and communities around North Florida are making way for new ideas. Our
population is growing about 1.3% per year and with 2700 lots platted and ready for sale
we will continue to grow slowly as people find out about our beautiful county. Over in
Gadsden County, construction of a "solar farm" is slated to begin later this year. Taylor
County has approved a 30,000-acre development and it's expected to be built out by
2035. Duval County is working frantically to get approval and dollars to deepen
JaxPort's 40-foot channel to handle supercargo ships, and add about 8,000 jobs. All of
this, and more, will surely have an impact on Gilchrist County.
Buddy Vickers has the leadership skills and training necessary to make an effective
county commissioner. He would like for Gilchrist to attract families and others to enjoy
our rivers, springs, and campgrounds. This would provide jobs and a stream of income
for our local shops and businesses. Buddy would like to see small, eco-friendly
industry attracted to Gilchrist. This would provide a solid tax base and higher paying
jobs for our local people. This can be accomplished, and at the same time protect our
water, air, and natural beauty. Change is coming; we must direct it in a way that
protects our rural heritage.
Buddy has the desire to serve Gilchrist County. He is an independent thinker and
has no obligation to anyone except the citizens of Gilchrist County. Please allow Buddy
to work for you.
Please vote for Buddy Vickers on August 14th

Submitted
Suwannee Valley Player's
presentation of "The Lion, The
Witch and the Wardrobe," the C.S.
Lewis classic adapted to the stage by
Don Quinn, opened last weekend to
great attendance. The story of four
youngsters visiting the countryside
in England and finding themselves
transported .to the fantasy .land of
JNarnia was well received by those
attending the .opening weekend
of the production. The Summer
Youth Production of this area's only
community theater gives youngsters
an opportunity to experience the
theater in a way they might not
otherwise have an opportunity to
experience it.
Opening week started out with the
cast taking the show on the road with
a performance at Bell High School for
the Bell 21st Century CCLC summer
enrichment program. After that they
returned to the Chief Theater where
they entertained crowds of 50, 70
on Friday through Sunday weekend
performances The story takes place
in [he country) side of England,just


n, The Witch,
e"
outside of London. The old house is
owned by a professor of mythology
and has an interesting history. One
such piece of history is the old
wardrobe that is kept in the spare
room. The wardrobe, which was built
from the wood of a tree, whose seed
came from Narnia is a portal or entry
into the mystical land of Narnia. At
this time in Narnia, the white witch,
played by Molnar, -has the country
under her control and it is a frozen
land of terror and evil. The legend
has it that it will take four "sons and
daughters of Adam and Eve" to break
the spell, defeat the witch, and return
the throne to Aslan the "true" king of
Narnia. However, one of the sons of
Adam is a traitor.
The play will run again July 20-
22, Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m.
and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. It is a play
for the whole family, so make your
plans now to attend and support this
remarkable ground of youngsters.

again. Thanks, Lancaster. Our after-
noon showers keep the grass growing
and the boys busy.
We've had lots of visitors from
all over the state-many first timers.
All plan to return. We're looking
forward to ladies from The Villages
to stop in during the week and then
they're off to lunch in Trenton. This
trip will make a nice day's outing for
them and hopefully they will pick up
a few new ideas for their own quilt

Well, it's been a spell since you've
heard from us, but we are alive and as
well as can be expected, since we're
not getting any younger.
And speaking of getting along in
years, we recently celebrated two
milestone birthdays complete with
fabulous food and of course, ice

years young, and Maxine Hale, who
turned 94. Neither one shows any
signs of slowing down and what a
blessing they both are.
Alice, the Queen of Swedish Weav-
ing, donated one of her throws to be
raffled off. Marvine Deer-Robert
took on the task of selling the tickets.

County begins spraying


for mosquitoes


By Carrie A. Mizell
Recent floodwaters from Tropical
Storm Debby have left mosquitoes
swarming and residents throughout
the county feeling the oh-so-familiar
tingle from their bite.
Gilchrist County officials began
fighting back last week, when they
initiated a countywide spraying
regime that began on July 10 near
the Santa Fe River and continues
Monday through Friday. According to
County Administrator Bobby Crosby,
the entire county will be sprayed for
mosquitoes in the form of a plume of
smoke emitting from the back of a
county pickup truck.
With so many mosquitoes buzzing
around the community, the Gilchrist
County Health Department is now
emphasizing the importance of
residents and visitors protecting
themselves against mosquito-borne
diseases.
To prevent mosquitoes from living
and multiplying around homes and
businesses, citizens are asked to drain
standing water. Drain water from
garbage cans, buckets, pool covers,
coolers, toys, flowerpots or any
other containers where sprinkler or
rainwater has collected. Discard old
tires, drums, bottles, cans, pots and
pans, broken appliances and other
items that aren't being used. Empty
and clean birdbaths and pet's water
bowls at least once or twice a week.
Protect boats and vehicles from rain
with tarps and don't accumulate,
water. Maintain swimming pools in
good condition and appropriately
chlorinated. Empty plastic swimming
pool when not in use.
Cover your skin with clothing. If
you must be outside when mosquitoes
are active, cover up. Wear shoes,


socks, long pants and long sleeves.
Apply mosquito repellent to bare skin
and clothing. Always use repellents
according to the label. Repellents with
10 to 30 percent DEET, picaridin,
oil of lemon eucalyptus and IR3535
are effective. Use mosquito netting
to protect children younger than 2
months old.
Cover door and windows with
screens. Keep mosquitoes out of your
house by repairing broken screening
on windows, doors, porches and.
patios.
Symptoms of West Nile virus may
include headache, fever, fatigue,
dizziness, weakness and confusion.
Physicians should contact their
county health department if they
suspect an individual may have
a mosquito-borne illness. DOH
laboratories provide testing services
for physicians treating patients with
clinical signs\ of mosquito-borne
disease.
DOH continues to conduct
statewide surveillance for mosquito
borne illnesses, including West Nile
virus infections, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, St. Louis Encephalitis,
malaria and dengue.
For more information on
mosquito-borne illnesses, visit
DOH's Environmental Health
website at http://www.doh.state.fl.us/
Environment/medicine/arboviral/
index.htrnl or call the Gilchrist
County Health Department at 352-
498-1360.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission maintains
a Web site for reporting wild bird
die offs related to West Nile virus.

Commission

to enforce.sign

ordinance on

right of ways

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
discussed the enforcement of the
county's ordinance which restricts
the placement of signs in the county's
right-of-way. John McPherson,
Gilchrist County attorney reported
to the Commission that it becomes
an issue to enforce the sign
ordinance each year during political
campaigns.
The Commission discussed that a
lot of intersections in the county have
become cluttered and blinded by the
amount of political and advertisement
signs placed both on and on the
edge of the county right of way. The


Nr --- ~---~-


Commission explained that a lot of
the signs have been placed around
utility poles which are also difficult
to work and mow around.
"It is hard when the tractor operator
has to get off the equipment to move
signs before he can mow in an area,"
explained Billy Cannon, Gilchrist
County Transportation Supervisor.


BEST QUALIFIED CANDIDATE

Hope to see you this Saturday,
for the Political Rally at the
Gilchrist County FFA Rodeo Arena


The Gilchrist County Commission
advised the Road Department
Supervisor to begin picking up all
of the signs that are in the county
right-of-way and place them at the
Road Department, headquarters on
US 129 south of Bell. The candidates
and other advertisers can pickup their
signs at.that location.
