County to save over


$300K in Medicaid-


billing errors


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
was advised in their July 16th budget
workshop that due to a great deal of
work involving Gilchrist County
Finance Department, Jacki Johnson
and Sheree Pitzarel working with
auditors and staff with the Agency
for Health Care Administration, the
county will save over $310,000 in
Medicaid billing errors.
Jacki Johnson. explained that
Gilchrist County .had received
information about the reported
mistakes in the Medicaid billing
problems in mid-2010. She told the
Commission that some of the errors
were correct, but q majority of the
billing mistakes were not owed by
Gilchrist County.
In early 2012, the state agency sent

a review group to Gilchrist County to
go through the reported problems.
The finance department staff was
involved in the reviews and the
explanations involving the Medicaid
invoices that had been denied for
payment by Gilchrist County.
The. review process took several
days. When the review was completed
the state agency reported Gilchrist
County's fee was reduced to $71,000.
Mrs. Johnson reported to: the
Commission that this fee will be
certified by the State of Florida as
of August 1, 2012. Gilchrist County
would pay $60,929.84 if the feeis
paid within 30 days of August 1,
2012.
Mrs. Johnson also reported that
county staff worked very hard and
in close association with the auditing
group to work out the many financial
differences.
The Florida Association
of Counties was also involved
in working with not only Gilchrist
County, but also several other"
counties who experienced the same
type of Medicaid billing errors.
State Senator Steve Oelrich's office
reported the senator was involved in
having the state agency work closely
with the counties in the 14th District
of Florida.
Other counties that also had their
Medicaid billing errors reduced are:
Alachua ($8.2 million), Bradford
($641,000), Columbia ($1.25
million), Levy ($551,000), Marion
($3.5 million), Putnam ($757,000),,
and Union ($234,000).
Overall, Florida's Senate District
14 saw a total savings of just over
$15.4 million dollars'.

A Georgia-based development
company is under contract with
local property owners to build
a McDonald'sTM and 'a Family
DollarTM on the block between
NE 1st and NE 2nd Street, in
downtown Trenton.
Currently, Ted and Pam Burt and
First Baptist Church of Trenton
officials are working with TRC
Acquisitions and Holdings to bring
the new businesses to Trenton.
"This city -needs to grow," said
Pastor Keith McConnell, of First
Baptist Church.
The church is reportedly under
contract with TRC to purchase a
I-acre lot that is currently .being
used for church parking. The lot
fronts SR 26 and is adjacent to Ted
Burt's law office.
Ted and Pam Burt are in
the process of trying to find
an individual, a non-profit
organization, or a business owner
willing to take on the cost of
moving the historic May House.
'Built in 1922, the May,House
was originally the home of Dr. Ed
Q. May, a local drugstore owner
who moved to Trenton from
Quincy, Florida. Today, the home
serves as the law offices of Ted
Burt and Mark Feather.
Trenton City Manager Taylor
Brown said he would hate
to see the historic home torn
down. Brown suggested to the
Trenton City Commission that
the City move the home closer
to the railroad depot and use the
facility as an event location, but
the city commissioners were not
interested.
Brown said the City has not
received any applications from
TRC Acquisitions and Holdings
related to the proposed building
of a McDonaldsTM and a Family
DollarTM, but he has talked with
several engineers and architects
about the project.


Ted and Pam Burt are now looking for someone interested in The May House.


Dr. Ed Q. May
"The city is very supportive of
the project," Brown said. "It could
be a catalyst for more business in
Trenton."


Federal disaster aid now available to area residents

By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County was deemed a e . i -
disaster area last week in the wake of a
Tropical Storm Debby, which caused
major flooding along the Santa Fe
River.
Residents affected by flooding as
a result of Tropical Storm Debby,
can now apply for federal disaster
assistance through the Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA). Gilchrist County was one
of 22 counties in Florida designated
for individual assistance.
According to David Peaton,
director of Gilchrist County
Emergency Management, four local
residents living along the Santa Fe
River have already had their flooded
homes inspected by FEMA officials.
Areas affected by flooding in
Gilchrist County include homes e ., .

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
COOK ING AND CARR YI N' ON


We have been enjoying some won-
derful peaches this summer.
Last week, our friend Mark Thomp-
son sent us a big beautiful basket of
South Carolina peaches.
Frankly, I can't think of anything
better this time of year than a fresh
peach.
When we were children, about 50
years ago, I remember my mother
serving a small bowl of berries or
peaches for dessert. She would sprin-
kle just a little sugar across the top of
the fruit and then pour about a quar-
ter cup of evaporated milk over the
fruit. Today we don't use evaporated
milk like they used to. I believe that a
couple generations ago not everyone
had refrigeration so canned milk was
very practical.
Today, I love nothing better tlan
fresh fruit with unbeaten whipping
cream, also known as heavy whip-
ping cream, poured over it.
The very best whipping cream
brand I have found is -Organic Val-
ley. It is. not so much the organic
part'that I love, its just ihat this brand
-of heavy cream, butter and half
and. half has a superior rich flavor.
Wouldn't you know its the rich part
that keeps me coming back to the Or-
ganic Valley brand.
If you are looking for a rich, creamy
peach pie try the following recipe,
My family loved it, so I'm sure you
will not be disappointed.


6ewf4y Zeacid _e'

1 homemade or frozen 9-inch pie
crust
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose-flour
2 cups sliced peaches
(sliced about 1/2 inch thick)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Com-
bine sugar and flour in bowl and mix
well. Add sliced peaches and stir to
coat the peaches evenly with sugar
and flour mixture..
Sprinkle pie crust with cinnamon
and pat it into crust. Next fill pie
crust with peaches and any juice that
maybe in the bowl.
Stir heavy whipping cream and
vanilla together and pour over the
peaches. Make sure the cream mix-
ture runs down in between the peach-
es.
Place the pie on the bottom rack of
the oven and bake until the peaches
are tender and the cream has formed
a custard, about 35 to 40 minutes.
Let pie cool to room temperature
and serve with a dollop of *freshly
beaten whipped cream.
*To make beaten whipped cream,
add 1 cup heavy whipping cream to
mixing bowl along with 1/3 cup con-
fecti'oners sugar and V teaspoon va-
nilla and beat until light and fluffy.


The Gilchrist County Journal is a
small weekly newspaper that strives
to give the public, especially the
residents of Gilchrist County, an op-
portunity to submit their opinion for
publication.,,. ,, .,, .i .
From time to time issues involving
the public and recently issues involv-
rig elections, prompt people to want
to air their opinions. '
We strive to give the people of this
small, rural county a way to air their
opinions by publishing Letters to the
Editor as long as they are signed by"
the writer when submitted.
It is now the time in political cam-
paigns when friends of candidates
are, beginning to submit letters of
recommendation for their candidates
as Letters to the Editor. If someone
is writing a letter supporting or ask-
ing the public to consider a candidate
before they vote, this is an .endorse-
ment.


The Gilchrist County Journal does
not publish letters of endorsement as
Letters to the Editor. Letters of en-
dorsement will be printed as display
advertising.
u The.Gic-rfst County Journal doqs
not endorse any political candidate
seeking office. This was the policy
that my father Mr. J. Min Ayers ad-'
opted before my time, and it has
served us well over the years.

Gilchrist County students will head
back to school on Monday, Aug. 20
for the, 2012-13 school year. Teach-
ers will return to the classroom on

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
Few will disagree that the
performance of the equity markets,
despite some recent gains, has been
erratic, unpredictable and at times
just plain not fun. Even worse, there
is no shortage of prognosticators
willing to.tell anyone who will listen
(the media generally tune them in
with rapt attention) just how much
worse the future is likely to be.
Although the .battle cries of
disastrous deficits, failed stimulus
programs and rising inflation ring
hollow when bathed in the light of
reality, hysterical voices of doom
continue to flood the media. The
message, repeated ad' nauseaum, is
that we cannot afford the unemployed,
the poor, healthcare, Medicare and
Social Security. Drastically reducing
deficits, debt and taxes must take
precedence. Failure to act will topple
the economy, or so the bastions of
conservatism tell us.
From a macroeconomic viewpoint,
we should not be willing to accept
high unemployment as being a
structural and permanent part of
the economic' landscape thereby
condemning the unfortunate to the
horrors of poverty. The tragic part is
that relatively simple solutions are
readily at hand.
Economists such as Yale professor
Robert Shiller and Nobel laureate
Paul Krugman of Princeton have said
.repeatedly that an effective avenue
of relief would be serious fiscal
assistance, i.e., emplpy workers
directly for public works programs.
In doing so we would see increased
tax revenues, lower deficits, rising
corporate profits and subsequently
higher corporate share prices.
Meanwhile, if the negativism and
uncertainty has you wondering if Wall
Street is the street you should be on,
maybe the following comments will
help shine a bit of realistic light into
that dark abyss we call the future.
Take time to search out those
investment candidates most likely to
benefit from continuous albeit slow
global economic growth, companies
such as Joy Global (JOY). I am
discussing Joy because the company,
in addition to being one that I
have received numerous questions
about recently, illustrates two key
investment points;
Joy engages in the manufacture
and servicing of mining equipment
for mineral extraction worldwide. A
year ago my earnings estimate for
the fiscal'year ending in October was
S,$6.00 per, share,, with a 12- month
target price of $113. The company
earned $5.92 and the shares recently
closed at about $54.
This clearly illustrates a point I
have made repeatedly. You need to
watch your investments. When the
shares were selling at $92 as recently
as late February,. a sell stop order at
,around $85 was necessary. While
still giving back about $7'per share,
it would have staved off a round trip
loss of an additional $31.
So how do you know when and
at what'price to add a stop loss?
You don't; you estimate what you
are willing to give back,,in this case
about 8 percent of last February's
share price. If the stop loss is hit you
can then move on to the second key
point, which is whether you should
repurchase the shares after they
have plateaued lower. The answer
is easy to write but time consuming,
to implement. You need to do a
full analysis on the company and
determine if you still like the shares
today. In the case of Joy, second
quarter bookings were $1.2 billion,
compared to $1.5 billion a year ago,
a decrease of 19 percent. However,
net sales increased 45 percent to
$1.5 billion when compared to the
same period last year. Operating
income was $333 million in the
second quarter of 2012, compared to
$234 million a year ago and was 22
percent of sales in both years. Income
from continuing operations was $218
million or $2.04 per share for the
second quarter compared to $162
million, or $1.52 per share a year ago.
Looking at the intrinsic value of the
shares, the discounted earnings model
produces a result of $176, while the
more 'conservative free cash flow to
the firm model produces an intrinsic
value of $144. My earnings estimate
for this fiscal year is $7.25 per share
and $7.75 per share for fiscal 2013
with a 12-month target price on the
shares of $62 for a 22 percent capital
gain. In addition there is a dividend
yield of 1.40 percent.

Clarification
Clerk of the Circuit Court candidate
Susan P. Owens, a Democrat, has
expended $3,128 of her own monetary
revenues toward her campaign. Mrs.
Owens has not received any monetary
contributions from individuals
supporting her campaign. The
Gilchrist County Journal published
in the newspaper last week that the
funds in her campaign account were
from contributions, but failed to say
that the contributions were made by
Susan P. Owens herself. The Journal
staff regrets any misunderstanding
that may have occurred.

Second Chances And Mulligans
(Kent Heaton)


If there was ever an deep desire in life it would be the
opportunity to have a second chance to do things
differently. As years roll into decades the hindsight of
yesterday draws the mind to reflect on the decisions made
early in life and the wish that somehow many of those
choices could be changed or removed. Life is not about
living without regrets but rather trying very hard to limit
the regrets in life. There are always things we could have
done better: to be a better son, more loving husband,
giving attention to the children, spending time with others
and focusing more on the words of God. Noble goals we
sometimes fail at achieving but if given a second chance
would we do so much better?
In the game of golf there is a thing called a mulligan. A
mulligan is a shbt that allows a golfer to hit again after
making a disastrous play. Often the mulligan can be as bad
as the first shot. Within the rules of golf a mulligan is
against the rules'and the wish to have a second chance in
life is also against the rules. In this short life we have but
one chance and yet upon this short time our eternal destiny
will rest. Would a second chance help?
In the story of Lazarus and the rich man (Luke 16:19-31)
Abraham told the rich man that it is impossible to receive
a second chance at life. Realizing this, the man begged
Abraham to send Lazarus to the home of his five brothers
to warn them of the impending danger of torment. Again
Abraham said this would not be possible and his five
brothers had the same opportunity as the rich man.
Consider for a moment if the rich man would be given a
second chance. Would it make a difference? Does a
second chance mean that people would live right and do


what God said? Abraham reminded the rich man that if
man would not listen to "Moses and the prophets" then a
second chance would not help (v29).
The truth of man's nature is that a second chance would
be no different because "the way of man is not in himself;
it is not in man who walks, to direct his own steps"
(Jeremiah 10:23). Perfection does not come from a second
chance it comes from following the will of God. How
many times did the Lord through the prophets warn the
people of Judah that if they did not learn the lessons of her
northern sister Israel the same fate would befall them?
"And I said, after she had done all these things, 'Return
to Me.' But she did not return. And her treacherous sister
Judah saw it. Then I saw that for all the causes for which
backsliding Israel had committed adultery, I had put her
away and given her a certificate of divorce; yet her
treacherous sister Judah did not fear, but went and played
the harlot also" (Jeremiah 3:7-8). Judah would not learn
'the second chance lessons from Israel.
If all men were given a second chance the same ruin
would come upon them as in the beginning. Men are not
saved by a second chance men are saved by the blood of
Jesus Christ that only came one time to save us. "And as it
is appointed for men to die once, but after this the
judgment, so Christ was offered once to bear the sins of
many. To those who eagerly wait for Him He will appear
a second time, apart from sin, for salvation" (Hebrews
9:27-28). The only time we have is now. Now is the dcay of
salvation (2 Corinthians 6:2). There will be no second
chance and no mulligans.

Riordan Reunion
Submitted
The Denis Riordan family, 45 in
all, from Bell enjoyed a great get-
together at Otter Springs beginning
June 29-July 1. While the springs
' were closed due to all the flooding,
the pool was a nice place to cool off
and the kids particularly enjoyed it.
They also had a great deal of fun
at the volleyball court with many
impromptu games. Everyone had
a great time catching up on family
"doings" as some missed last year's
reunion. This time everyone was able
to make it including Matt, who had
just gotten home from Iraq a week
or so earlier. Kyle, Tim's son, had
just-graduated from pharmacy school
in Sani Antonio, Texas, two weeks
earlier. The food was very good and
the rain held off, but the death of our
great friend, Donald Hurst, saddened
all. He and Denis Sr. had been good
friends since 1946 when they roomed
together at the University of Florida.
He was called Uncle Don by all of
Denis' children. The- weekend ended
with all attending Mass at Holy Cross
Mission in Cross City on Sunday,
July 1.

S...K Hello my name is Emory Philman, and I am seeking the
.: -. ; office of the Superintendent of Schools. I am 58 years
Sold. I am married to Pat Hodge Philman who has been a
:: teacher at Bell Elementary School for 24 years, most
recently as the Librarian. I have lived in Gilchrist County
for many years and I come from a family with many ties
in and around Gilchrist County. My parents are Amos
and Alene Philman. I would like to apologize for not
getting by each of your homes to ask for your vote and
support. My job has me leaving my home at 4:00 in the
afternoon and returning home at 4:30 in the early morn-
ing. So I have not had much time to visit.

I entered this race to increase teacher involvement in decision making, to improve
student discipline, increase student achievement outside of FCAT, and to balance instruc-
tion on basic life skills, college preparation, and vocational education.
Most importantly, I feel a Superintendent must be able to listen to all affected parties
before decisions are made Which include teacher, support staff, administrators, parents,
and students.
If our students achieve to their highest potential, our organization succeeds. Whether in
the front of the classroom or working to support those on the front line, I believe each
system employee should be motivated and rewarded for their contribution to our students
as individuals and our schools.,
I want to be an advocate for all staff, both professional and support. I want each
employee to feel appreciated and necessary to the success of our students' achievements.
I would recommend a more balanced approach to instruction, to focus as much on a
well-rounded educational preparation of students for their futures as well as a re-
construction of preparation for FCAT.
I do not, feel, at this time and regardless of achievement attained, that the superintendent,
school board members, or school system administrators should receive an increase in pay
until all system employees receive an increase in pay, nor will I support extension of our
school day or school calendar, because it would require additional budgetary outlay in this
time of shrinking resources.
Common Core Standards in our schools provide consistency in what students are
expected to learn. It also provides parents an understanding of what their children are
expected to learn.
So let's give our teachers our support and our trust that they can teach our kids without
being micro-managed.
I will involve teachers, administrators, and employees in the process of hiring new
people. I will be fair and straightforward to .all who seek employment in our school
system.

In less than two months, what

keep going. Celebration is necessary
though, to stop, give thanks and show
appreciation for all who contributed
to the success of the finished project.
I'm not necessarily talking about
throwing a party, (though the option
is yours) but doling out a little ap-
preciation can feel like a celebration,
even without the balloons and cake.
Recently, I was a part of a huge,
project that culminated in a very suc-
cessful event. Being so busy in the
days leading up and including the
day of the event, there was little time
to think about the contributions of
everyone involved. Afterward, as I
took a few moments to think about all
that was invested, I was overwhelmed
by the team effort that took place.' In
that moment of thanksgiving, I truly
celebrated. -So today, celebrate an
accomplishment in your life, big or
small, by remembering how someone
has invested in you or helped you out
and make sure not to let them go un-
appreciated. '
As we wrap up our series on Nehe-
miah, notice that we are only half way
through the book. This testifies that
Nehemiah's work does continue with
a shift of emphasis from the wall to
other necessary reforms. As gover-
nor, Nehemiah is the political leader,
and now he includes Ezra, the priest
and scribe, as the religious leader into
the upcoming events. First, Ezra as-
sembled everyone together and read
the entire Law of Moses. The Isra-
elites confessed their sins, and their
covenant with God was renewed. In
Chapter 12, the Israelites dedicate the
Wall with singing and thanksgiving.
The. story of Nehemiah ends with
final reforms being put into place,
and we find that Nehemiah has not


lost his focus, zeal or determination
as a leader. However, in his parting
words, we realize he .also has not lost
his understand of the origin of suc-
cess: "Remember me with favor, 0
my God." What a fitting ending of
our example of a Godly leader... be-
cause every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

I'm Crystal Thornton Jones, Republican candidate for Gilchrist
County Clerk of Court. I am a Registered Dental Hygienist by -,
trade. I believe in conservative Christian values, the Constitu-
tion, small government, and sound fiscal responsibility. My five
years of higher education and common sense will provide the
level of leadership and responsibility that you deserve. To me ,
common sense and simple economics go: hand in hand...Your
'expenditures don't exceed your revenues!!! This is doubly
important when thht revenue is tax, dollars taken off the backs of
hardworking citizens.
I'm often asked the question, "Crystal...Why do you want to be the Clerk?" The answer.
is simple. I'm a native and part of the future generation of Gilchrist County. I've earned
my leadership role through innovation and determination. I'm an excellent critical thinker
and multi-tasker. Please don't mistake my kindness for weakness. I want to rein in waste-
ful spending and keep this county headed in the right direction. I want to lay a strong
foundation of sound fiscal stewardship, leadership, and prosperity for the future genera-
tions. I am young enough to keep up with the ever-changing technologies and legislation.
*I can assure you that no other candidate will work tirelessly to provide the level of
service....that you...the taxpayers... have a right to expect! .

at Lake City Community College and Florida State Fire College. My
profession is that of a FF/Paramedic and for the past 4 years I have
been employed with Alachua County Fire Rescue as a Rescue
Lieutenant. I am married to the former Angie Novello and between-us
we have 4 children who all attend Trenton Schools. Angie is the
Activities Director at Ayers Health and Reliab. We also have a small
business called Sweet Little Somethings.
Gilchrist County is our home and this is where we will raise our
children. As a parent, citizen, and as a taxpayer I do have a vested
interest in our children's education.
We are truly blessed to have a school system that is the envy of most
others. We are a small district, however, we still compete with much
larger school districts that have far greater resources than our small
county. Being 'one of the best school districts in the state is nothing
new, we have consistently been near the top since 2003. Our
administrators, excellent faculty and staff, involved parents, students
who are willing to learn, and a supportive community are all to be
commended.
Some say.....you should be an expert in education to serve as a
school board member and to that I say POPPYCOCK! Vision,
foresight, common sense, the ability to communicate, knowing when
to compromise, and knowing when to lead and when to follow are the
attributes, I believe, which make a good school board'member. The
school board employs those with the expertise to run our schools and,
educate our children: The school board provides them with the
resources they need whether it is in food' service, transportation,
janitorial, maintenance, or academics. The school board also
provides the oversight ;of these experts to insure the board's vision
":and policies are carried out. As you know, there is much more to a
* school system than just teaching the three Rs.
Some say my dad, who served 20 years on this board, did a pretty.
good j6b and I can assure you he wasn't art expert in education. In
talking to him during the 20 years he served, only. 2 members had a
background in education; Mr. Buddy Vickers who was a former,
teacher arid coach, and the late Mr. Murph Everett-who was a retired
Ag teacher. He and the other members tlmat served with him during
those 20.years were just everyday peoplejust like you and me.
Those boards on which my dad was a member, brought us into the'
21st Century. Four new schools were built in Trenton and Bell,
technology was embraced, the best and brightest were hired, magnet
'programs', were developed and implemented with the Health
Academy being .the first, an alternative school established, a step
programiimplemPnted for pay increases for faculty and staff,, along
with AP'courses, and distance learning. All these accomplishments
while staying financially sound were brought about by school board
members who were not experts in education.
..I want to be your. school board member fromDistrict 2. I believe I
have the qualities and temperament to be an effective board member.
My 5 years in the U.S. Army taught me Leadership, Teamwork, and
Discipline. I unv profession as a FF Paramedic I make life and death
- decisions on a regular basis, in which I mst analyze th,e problem and.
make decisions quickly and accurately. Again,, I have a vested
interest with our 4 children in school and as taxpayer, I will look out
for your hard earned tax dollars for I know it is very.easy to spend
someone else's money. '
aI also want everyone to understand I am running for the district 2
seat and not against Mr. Bob Clemmons who I have the. utmost
respect for and Mrs. Lana Hastings who I also respect.
I humbly ask for N our vote and support on August 14th. If elected I
will do my best to camrr on the great representation that our school
system has enjoyed.
Thank You, '

Greater amberjack
recreational season to
open in Gulf
Submitted by Amanda Nalley,
Greater amberjack will open for
recreational harvest in Gulf of Mexico
state and federal waters August 1.
The season closes annually June 1.
The minimum size limit for greater
amberjack in Gulf of Mexico waters
is 30 inches fork length, which is
measured from the tip of 'the fish's
closed mouth to the center of the fork
in the tail. In Atlantic state waters, the
size limit is 28 inches fork length.
Recreational anglers may take one
fish per person, per day. Reef fish
gear rules apply when fishing for
greater amberjack. In Gulf waters,
this means anglers must use circle
hooks, and have a dehooking device
and a venting tool on their vessel.,
State waters in the Gulf extend'
from shore to nine nautical miles and
in the Atlantic from shore to three
nautical miles; federal waters extend
from those boundaries to about 200
miles from shore.

COMMUNITY*COMMITMENT* JUSTICE
Gilchrist County deputies perform many lawy enforcement functions that help to safeguard the quality of life of our community mem-
bers. We must never take for granted their commitment to protecting our citizens and we must recognize the challenges they endure, the
hard work the deputies perform along with the inherent risk they face on a daily basis. I would like to take a moment and personally
thank all Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office employees for the hard work, dedication and their loyalty to the Sheriff's Office and to the
community they serve.
I have lived here in Gilchrist County my entire life and I have always been a part of this community. I have a total of 17 years of law
enforcement service, 10,of which was with the Florida High\i aN Patrol. I have spent the last decade fighting crime on the streets of
Gilchrist County and the surrounding Counties. I can say with confidence that I'm the only cafididate running for sheriff who has '
worked side by side in the trenches with our deputies and I understand more than most the sacrifices our deputies make to keep our
community'safe. '
. I'm passionate about being sheriff because the current administration is simply out of touch with main stream law, enforcement
practices. We need a changing of the guard. We desperately need a new law enforcement leader who isn't afraid to work alongside the
deputies. I will not be a sheriff who will hide behind their desk, I consider myself a blue collar sheriff who isn't afraid to be the first one
on scene or the lastione to leave.
Our deputies are our most important assets and our front line to reducing crime, promoting citizeris'.quality of life, and improving law
enforcement -citizen relationships. You will see me out in the community with our deputies leading by example. Besides.. .what better
way to gain respect from your deputies than to roll your sleeves up and work alongside them. It is my experience that when your
employees see that you love the work you're doing, they will want to catch yourenergy and pursue your vision for the future.
Life is fragile and our public safety is too important to allow crime to creep into our neighborhoods: I want the community too-holdme
responsible for bringing down the crime rate.. If we can't stop the drugs in our schools, blame me. If we can't protect our senior citizens,
I will be responsible and I will hold myself accountable for getting the job done. My vision for the future is to build a better life for our-
youth and our seniors. As a community we are dependent onr one another and should reach out to those around us. We each have a part
in making Gilchrist County successful. Like Sir Robert Peel said "The police are the public and the public are the police." To be
successful, the'Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office cannot separate from, but rather join in partnership with the community.
Let me also take the time to thank the school board, teachers, aid students for getting Gilchrist Ciunty School district ranked number
2 in the state. What this also means is that more people will be moving in to take advantage of our excellent school system. With an
increase in population comes a potential increase in crime. Now is the time for you to elect a sheriff who you feel has the integrity and
fortitude to stop criminals in their tracks. It is my duty to hire the most qualified deputies, and provide them with the advanced training
and tools to do their job. We;are at a pivotal point;, we must start training our deputies, to confidently combat our burglary and drug
problems while it is relatively manageable. We are all in this together and we must be willing to work together and in
doing so we can have one of the best sheriff's offices in the country. 'One I can be proud of and most
importantly:...One You Can Be Proud Of. For additional information please take a look at my website r

Farm Bureau helps UF/IFAS get closer to fundraising goal
for new learning center


THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012!


By Robert H. Wells
The University of Florida's School
of Forest Resources and Conservation
received a $50,000 donation
Wednesday from the Florida Farm
Bureau. to help rebuild a learning
center destroyed' by fire in July 2011.
The school, part of UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences,
is now halfway to the fundraising
goal of $1.5 million for rebuilding
the center, located on Lake Mize in
the Austin Cary Forest northeast of
Gainesville.
"We are proud to be a major
contributor to the rebuilding of the
Austin Cary learning center," said
John Hoblick, Florida Farm Bureau
president. "Education is one facet
of what Farm Bureau is all about,


and this center will offer a quality
learning environment as well as a
place for university and community
functions."
Jack Payne, UF's senior vice
president for agriculture and natural
resources said, "Florida FarmBureau
has always been a stalwart supporter
of-IFAS, and this is great example of
achieving shared goals through our
long-standing partnership."
The school's director, Tim White,'
called the donation a reflection of the
partnership between Florida Farm
Bureau and IFAS.
"And we hope that they will use the
new building often for their events,"
White said.
Officials said the fundraising
goal may be met by year's end, and


they'd like to break ground on a new
learning center by March 2013.
The rebuilt facility will give
forestry faculty and students, as well
as the public, a venue for enjoying
and learning about the forest while
attending meetings, classes 6r special
events.
In May, Plum Creek Foundation
gave $75,000 toward rebuilding the
center. Other sources of funding
have included companies and private
donors.
. Administrators. have set a target of
drawing 25,000 visitors each year to
the center once it's complete, including
UF students, faculty, professionals,
K-12 students, municipal and county
government officials and the public.


Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County,
I am running for the office of Clerk ofCircuit Court. It is
my belief that this position should be one of total neutrality.
So neutral in fact, that I am using my own money to fund this
campaign. I amn not rich on a teacher's salary by any stretch of
the imagination, but I do know the value of a dollar and how
to budget and stretch it to make it go as far as possible and I
have done just that for over 27 years. It is my opinion that if I.
use only my money, then' I am"living my belief that everyone
is equal and will be treated equally. When you are in a
position that is supposed to be well centered, there is no' room
to lean.in any direction.
Technology is here whether wellike it or not. I want to have
the. clerks website updated to meet the needs of the county. Pdf forms that can be downloaded at
home / office would make for a one trip venture, saving both time and money. Going green in
the Clerk's office through the use of e-filing is another waty to serve the public in a faster way,
while saving taxpayers money. While not all forms can be done this way, the bulk of things can
be. A help section would be beneficial to all as well.
If I am elected this is what you will get from me: professionalism, honesty and dedication. I
will be good steward ofthe taxpayers' funds. The Clerk's office is not a one man show, by any
means. It is atteam of professionals working towards one goal and that is serving you, the public
in the most efficient and accurate way. I am a good team leader. I have the ability to work well
with others, being open and fair with everyone and creating a pleasant work place environment.
If employees are happy, it makes for better customer service.
I know.thatI am qualified to do this job well. My 34 years of experience working with the
public and 27 years of continuous employment as a teacher will make a difference in this
position. I do believe in transparency in government and welcome all questions. I do nt -believe
in surveys with canned answers. I am committed to doing a good job serving all the people in
our county. There is no need to add fluffto who I am, or to my qualifications. Honesty is always
the best policy.

Kim Hart wins International People's Choice


Quilt Contest
Submitted by Paul Metts
Trenton's very own Kim Hart
was voted the International People's
Choice winner in the Timeless
Treasures Fabric Company quilt
contest that ended Friday, July 20th.
The contest began at the International
Houston Quilt Market in October
2011. Kim's entry, "The Guardian,"
received the largest portion of
approximately 7,000 votes from
viewers around the world. Kim
is known to many in Trenton and
surrounding communities throughout
Florida as the manager of long-arm
machine quilting at the Suwannee
Valley Quilt Shoppe. Stephanie
Metts, owner of the quilt shop, said
how proud she was of Kim, who
entered her very first quilt contest.
From the first moment Kim heard
about the Timeless Treasures' Stitch
Star contest, she was excited to
take the challenge! After a few days
"Lola" was born. Before she gave her
a name she was simply referred to as
"the dragon". As Kim was creating
the dragon she wanted it to be a "she"
and didn't want her to be "mean"
looking. She wanted the dragon to be
sweet, caring and magical.
This made her think of the name
Lola. Many years ago ishe heard
that. Lola means grandmother and


"The Guardian" was created by. Kim Hart and won the International
People's Choice Quilt, Contest.


she always wanted to be called
this one day by her own grandkids.
Grandmothers are generally 'sweet,
caring, and nurturing, but they can be


" fierce and protective, guarding their
grandchildren with all their heart.
Kim said, "This will be me" and that
is how Lola.."The Guardian" was
born.

EADY-WILSON ]

Clerk of Circuit Court


Over the past nine years I have had the privilege to serve under
two very capable Clerks of the Circuit Courts, the Honorable Danny Shipp in Levy County for four years
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

Call FWC for issues
with alligators


*Alligators are active during the
warm-weather months; and there's
a gdod chance that people who live
around water will encounter these
native creatures.'
Alligators are deceptively quick,
both in and out of the water. If
someone is bitten by an alligator, he
or she should seek medical attention
as soon as possible. Alligator bites
can result in serious infections
requiring specific antibiotic treatment,
According to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation. Commission (FWC)
Officials.' i
Avoid the risk of an alligator bite
by not taking matters into your own
hands or putting yourself in harm's
way. Call the FWC's Nuisance
Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-
GATOR (392-4286) to report any
alligator you believe poses a threat to
people, pets or property.
!. If there's an issue with an alligator,.
call the FWC and let the experts take
care of it," said FWC Lt. Scott Lee,'
Taylor County watch supervisor. "We
certainly don't want. anyone, getting
Shurt attempting to. capture, kill or
subdue an alligator."
Taking an alligator' without a
permit is a violation of FWC rules,
aid anyone--nrutenLlufnafy- iHtng
sw alligator could be cited, Lee
explained.
The Statewide Nuisance Alligator
Program- (SNAP) uses contracted
nuisance alligator trappers throughout
the state to remove alligators that have,
become a problem. If an alligator is 4.
feet or larger and the complaint meets
other qualifying criteria, SNAP
will issue a permit to a contracted
nuisance alligator trapper authorizing


. the removal of the animal.
In 2010, SNAP received 13,047
nuisance alligator complaints,
resulting in the removal of 5,856
nuisance alligators.
Here are some tips people can use
to stay safer around alligators:
S-Be aware of the possibility of,
alligators when you are in or near fresh
or brackish water. Bites may occur
when people do not pay close enough
attention to their surroundings when*
working or recreating near water.
-Do not swim outside of posted
swimming areas or in, waters
that might be inhabited by large
alligators.
"-Alligators are most active bet% een
dusk and dawn. Therefore, avoid
swimming at night,
-Dogs and cats are similar in size to
the natural prey of alligators. Don't
allow pets to swim, exercise or drink
in ,or near waters that ma3 contain
alligators.
-Never. feed alligators it's
dangerous and illegal.
-Dispose of fish scraps in garbage
cans at boat ramps and fish camps.
Do not throw them into the water.
Although you are not intentionally
feeding alligators when you do this.
-th e wsurf r-a t n the ame. .-. ....
-Observe and photograph allh gators
only from a distance.
-Leave alligators alone. Handling
even small alligators can result in
injury- State law prohibits killing,
harassing or possessing alligators.

Florida Department of Health

emphasizes importance of Back

to School immunizations
Submitted by Jessica Hammonds, Press Secretary
Florida Department of Health (DOH) encourages all parents and guardians
to check the immunization status and school requirements for their children.
As children and families across Florida prepare to start another school year,
it is vital that all students have their required immunizations. Immunization
documentation on a DOH Form 680, Certification of Immunization, is
required for all students in grades pre-Kindergarten (K) through 12.
"We encourage everyone to get your child up-to-date with their
immunizations and not wait for the school rush," said Section Administrator
of Immunizations Charles Alexander. "There is no time like the present
to update children's immunizations and provide them with the required
documentation to attend school."
DOH emphasizes the importance of parents scheduling an appointment
with a healthcare.provider or County Health Department as soon as possible,
and not to wait until the last minute, to schedule their children's back-to-
school immunizations. Accordingly, the Bureau of Immunization launched
their new website www.immunizeflorida.com to bring together the best
resources on vaccines and provide consumers with easy-to-understand
vaccination information.
Encourage your healthcare provider to give all age-appropriate shots to
your child during each visit. Immunizations keep your child safe from disease
and cut down on sick visits to your healthcare provider.
"Many healthcare providers and families have begun preparations for
the new school year," said Charles Alexander. "Immunizations should be
updated at all visits, including annual physical, interim check-ups or sport
physicals"
Documentation for required immunizations is mandatory for all students
entering, attending, or transferring into a Florida school in grades pre-
Kindergarten (K) through 12 as detailed in the Immunization Guidelines for
Florida Schools, Childcare Facilities, and Family Daycare Homes www.doh.state.fl.us/Disease ctrl/immune/schoolguide.pdf>.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Workshop scheduled for consumptive use permitting


Submitted
Public workshops on rule
development for statewide
consumptive use permitting
consistency ("CUPcon") will be
hosted in August by the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (FDEP) and Suwannee


River Water Management District
(District).
The first meeting is scheduled for
Tuesday, August 7, at the District
headquarters, 9225 County Road 49
in Live Oak.
The second will be held in
Chiefland on. Wednesday, August


8, at the Tommy Usher Community
Center, 506 SW 4th Ave.
Both meetings will begin at 9 a.m.
All interested parties are invited to
attend.
The purpose of the CUPcon
workshops is to inform the public
about a statewide effort, led by


Local candidates sveak uo


FDEP, to improve consistency in the
consumptive/water use permitting
programs implemented by the five
water management districts
Consumptive use permitting rules,
developed under the authority of Ch.
373, FS., are inconsistent among the
districts. This results ih confusion
for the regulated public, particularly
along the border areas of the districts,
and inequitable treatment of similar
applicants in different districts. The
development of separate procedures
and rules also is costly and
inefficient.
The goals of CUPcon are to make
water-use permitting programs less
confusing for applicants; to treat
applicants equitably statewide;
to streamline the process; to
provide consistent protection of
the environment; and to provide
incentives for behavior that protects
water resources (such as water
conservation).
The agenda for both workshops
includes an overview of CUPcon
and discussion of proposed rule
changes to Chapter 62-40, EA.C.;
permit types/thresholds; conditions


of issuance; water conservation;
10-year compliance report;
compliance monitoring; and specific
water management district rule
amendments. Public comment will be
invited and updates on other CUPcon
workgroups will be provided.
For more information visit the
CUPcon page on DEP's website.
Hart Springs Flowing
at Six Feet Higher Level
By Mitchell Gentry
The extreme drought before Tropi-
cal Storm Debby presented a condi-
tion at Hart Springs where the sur-
face water level (I will refer to as the
Suwannee River), and ground water
level (Hart Springs) were at record
lows. A condition existed where
the hydraulic. force -of the Suwan-
nee River, or Hart Springs, which-
ever was higher would determine the
flow of water either out of, or .in to,
Little Hart. Another condition of the
drought was a stronger tidal effect
that was more evident at Hart Springs
especially during the spring tides
(full moon and new moon) resulting
in the river overpowering the flow of

Hot! Hot! Hot!
Saturday's Gilchrist County
Political Forum can only be described
as hot.
Hosted by the Trenton Rotary Club
and the Gilchrist County Journal,
the Political Forum drew many local
candidates, who were each given five
minutes to speak.
Many candidates and. their
supporters were on-hand to talk
with local residents who took the
opportunity to attend Saturday's
function and learn more about
candidates seeking local office.
Held at the Gilchrist County Rodeo
Arena, the political forum featured
the county's new sound system. '
The political forum kicked off at 2
p.m. and ran throughout the afternoon
and well into the evening. There was
a brief break from the heat during the
school, board candidates' speeches
around 3:30 p.m. when the rain
started. After a short break due to rain,
the speaking got underway again.
The Primary election is August 14.


Trenton Rotary Club members John Frazier and Patricia Yates are
shown preparing for the start of the political forum.


To parents and voters of Gilchrist County;
My wife of 31 years, Elaine and I purchased property in Gilchrist County in 1998, predicated on the reviews of
the school system. Due, to events that deeply affected our community in the north (September 11th and Anthrax
mail) we moved here permanently in 2003. Our daughter, Kristen, has thrived in the less stressful environment here
and graduated as the Valedictorian of Bell High School in 2010 and is currently finishing her sophomore year at the
University of Florida.
Having operated my own business for over 30 years and now being retired, I felt it was time to continue to be
involved with education, only more extensively and to give back to a community we have learned to cherish.
I operated a school bus for 4 years in All sectiofis of the county and students know me as, "Mr. B" in Trenton as
well as in Bell. In addition to working as a bus driver, I volunteered hundreds of hours of my time, mainly to the
Bell Middle-High School Band as a highly active band booster for six years. Though it has since dissolved, I was
an active member of the Bell High School Parent-Teacher Association, and I participated on the Parent Advisory
Board at BHS for a year. Furthermore, I have been involved in many personal meetings with school administrators
in the area to discuss advanced educational ideas and have attended many school board meetings throughout the
past six years.
I am currently employed by the Florida Department of Veterans Affairs, working a few hours every weekend
providing transportation for the veterans who live in the veterans' home to go shopping, to church, or attend events
in the Lake City area.
I have neither family ties nor ties to any organizations-political or religIous- within Gilchrist
County. If I have the privilege to serve you, my decisions will be based entirely on the implica-
tions for students in our county schools, and I plan on applying my years of business experi- aceboke
ence to reach.sound conclusions as tp what is in our students' best interests. It was a pleasure Like er ot
to meet you all at the rodeo arena Saturday and thanks to the Gilchrist Journal and the Rotary urke for School
, for sponsoring the event. ictr. iot 3,
Respectfully yours, Coounty -

the springs. At first high tides would
stop the flow of the springs for 4-6
hours and flow would resume. The
last few weeks of the drought the Su-
wannee River would reverse the flow,
aqd an actual whirlpool would occur
over Little Hart Springs boil as water
entered the springs. During this time,
two divers entered Little Hart, and
encountered significant water flow
pressure as they penetrated the cave
system. Exiting they noticed that the
flow became non-existent, and then
reversed. They ran into tannic acid
(Suwannee river water) discoloring
about 400 feet in the cave system.
The flooding along the Suwan-
nee River that occurred after Tropi-
cal Storm Debby elevated the water
at Hart about 10-11 feet from the
drought low. Water came up to the.
volleyball court, crested within a foot
of entering the store, and as of July
22, 2012, has receded to the wall cap
by Little Hart. The water is retreat-
ing at a rate of 3-4 inches per day
for a total from the crest of 4-5 feet.
Monday, Little Hart started flowing
approximately 6 feet higher than be-
fore Debby came through. My pre-
diction is that barring other factors
Hart Springs should become clear at
a higher water level, and hopefully
within two weeks swimming will be
allowed.

Thousands of Dollars.
NOT ASSOCIATED WITH THE LOCAL GILCHRIST
COUNTY TEA PARTY!!!
I do believe in some of the National Tea Party's agenda as in Limited Federal Government,
States Rights, Fiscal Responsibility, Free Market, Individual Freedoms and Liberty, and
Personal Responsibility. I also believe that on the Local level that we should have Good
Public Safety, Safe Roads, and Good Schools as is listed on the Local Tea Party Website
and I believe that if you search my Voting Record as a County Commissioner that you will
see that I have voted on those lines. You will not see my name listed in the Local Tea Party
Voter Guide as one of their recommended Candidates for Clerk of the Circuit Court and I
have no problem with that, as I have not agreed with what I think are personal agendas on
the part of the Leadership of the Local Tea Party. I did not vote to hire their recommended
County Administrator selection nor did I agree to re-pave roads in Spring Ridge with
General Revenue dollars as the Board of Co. Comm. voted on a 5-0 vote to require a
Special Assessment on major road improvements to any subdivision. I also did not fill out
their Candidate Questions because I think that the VOTERS of Gilchrist County can vote
without the assistance of the Local Tea Party.
