Local heart transplant recipient



Swill celebrate his 3rd birthday


Familiar faces at the Trenton Post Office, Jo Carol Asbell and Sam
Jones will be missed.

Asbell and Jones


retire from post office


By Carrie A. Mizell
Jo Carol Aslbell is Gilchrist County
born and bred and she's not going
anywhere.
Though she retired after nearly 20
years at the Trenton Post Office last
week, Asbell said she plans to stay
active in the community she calls
home.
"It's bittersweet," Asbell said on
Friday, while talking about her last
day serving customers at the Trenton
Post Office.
Asbell began her career with the
United States Postal Service as a
postmaster relief/leave replacement.
"The people have been my main
focus over the years," Asbell said.
"They have been so good to me."
Customers quickly became friends,
who over the years have brought in
a number of baked goods for Asbell
and her fellow employees to enjoy,
like the woman who sent her son in
with a huge coconut cake for Asbell
earlier this week, a delicious going
away gift.
Being a Gilchrist County native
has been an advantage for Asbell as
she has worked at the Trenton Post
Office. There have many numerous
times over the years that she can
recall a sympathy card coming in
for someone with no address written
on the envelope. While the postal
employees are not allowed to give
out someone's address, Asbell has
been able to place the cards in the
recipient's mail box because she
knows just about everyone who
receives mail through the Trenton
Post Office.
"I've always tried to help people if
I can," Asbell said.
Over the years, Asbell said the
customers have not changed a lot, but
the post office's working relationship
with UPS has changed drastically.
"When I started you didn't mention
UPS; it was a dirty word," Asbell
explained. "Now they fly our mail
and deliver our packages and we
deliver their packages. We're just one
big family."


New postmaster Linda Jenkins
Asbell said she wanted to retire so
she could spend more time with her
husband James, who retired from
Central Florida Electric Cooperative
six years ago. Diagnosed with
rheumatoid arthritis, James gave up
farming this year and now the two
plan to spend some time traveling.
She may even sign-up to be a
substitute teacher.
Trenton Postmaster Sam Jones
also retired last week after 32 years
with the United States Postal Service.
Jones began his career in Allentown,
Pennsylvania, and transferred to
Jacksonville, Florida, in 1985. After
that he worked as a manager at
various post offices. Five years ago he
transferred to Trenton Post Office.
"When I first got to Trenton I didn't
know how I would be received as
the first black postmaster, but it has
been a very enjoyable experience,"
Jones said. "The employees take care
of each other like a family here and
the people in the community are so
friendly."
Trenton's new postmaster is Linda
Jenkins.

Wytatt was 2 months old when
Shands Hospital.

By Carrie A. Mizell
To watch Wyatt Thomas run
through the yard or ride his toy
tractor, one would never know the
sandy-haired boy received a life-
saving heart transplant at 9 months
old.
August 13, 2012. will mark
Wyatt's 3rd birthday and his parents,
Johnny and Ann Thomas, would
like to take the opportunity thank
all the citizens of Gilchrist County
for their continued prayers.
"It has been two years now
since Wyatt's heart rtanspiant and
he is doing awesome," said Ann
Thomas, Wyatt's mother.
Right this minute, Wyatt has a
staple in his head after climbing up
on the counter to reach a soap dish
and falling.
"We had to make a trip to the ER
since Superman can't seem to keep
his bottom end where it belongs,"
Ann said. "It was not a bad cut. One
staple and he was good to go."
Wyatt's latest trip to the hospital
just goes to show that he's all boy.
Compared to all that Wyatt has


he received an artificial heart at Today Wyatt is a healthy, happy boy who loves to play outside with
his family.


experienced in his almost three little
years of life, a staple is nothing.
Born on August 13, 2009, at
Shands Hospital in Gainesville,
Wyatt Mack-Lee Thomas, appeared
to be a perfectly healthy baby boy. It
wasn't long, however, before Wyatt
was diagnosed with a rare heart
defect called Truncus Arteriosis.
At 6 days old Wyatt underwent
open-heart surgery that was not a
total fix for his heart. At 2 months
old, Wyatt's doctors' said he would
need a heart transplant to survive.
On October 20, 2009, Wyatt was
placed on the Berlin Heart, which is
an artificial heart that sustained him
for 217 days until he was able to
receive a heart transplant.
Less than a month after receiving
a new heart, ,Wyatt was able to
come home to Gilchrist County
after spending 270 days at Shands
Hospital.
"He's a mess!" Ann said, of raising
her sweet boy. "He wants to be
outside all the time. He even learned
to swim earlier this summer."
Every four weeks Wyatt receives


an IV infusion that aids his immune
system and every four to six weeks
he pays a visit to the cardiologist,
but other than that he's a perfectly
healthy 2-year-old.
"When people see us they see a
little boy, but when we look at Wyatt
we see a miracle," Ann said.
Two years after receiving his new
heart, friends and family members
continue to call Wyatt's family to
see how he is doing and say they are
continuing to pray.
Wyatt's mother has urged people to
also pray for the donor family as they
cope with the loss of their child.
Just two weeks ago Wyatt and his
parents were able to meet the family
who gave their child's organs so that
others might live.
"I wanted to meet them, but I was
nervous," Ann said. "I had this fear
that it might cause them more grief to
meet Wyatt."
Instead, the opposite happened.
Spending a week in Gatlinburg
with Wyatt and his family comforted
the South Carolina mother whose
baby died at 7 months old after a


Wyatt
tragic accident.
"She just fell in love with
our baby," Ann said. "It was
amazing."
Since Wyatt has been old enough
to talk his parents have told him
repeatedly that he has an angel and
they point to his heart. When he
gets older Johnny and Ann plan to
show Wyatt a picture of the baby
boy who died and tell him that the
baby's heart saved his life.

The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection recently an-
nounced its commitment of up to
$900,000 to fund the efforts to restore
the Santa Fe River and its associated
springs.
In coordination with the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services and the Suwannee
River Partnership, the Suwannee
River Water Management District
will use this additional funding to
provide water quality and quantity
improvements that will help address
both nutrient and water supply is-
sues in the Santa Fe River Basin. By
directing this funding to advanced
technologies, the water management
district will work with area farmers
to keep more than 1 million pounds
of nitrogen from entering the river
and springs and save 670 million gal-
lons per year of water use.
"DEP shares the concerns of lo-
cal residents and river enthusiasts
when nutrient impacts, such as algae
blooms, prevent us from enjoying our
beautiful waterways," said DEP Sec-
retary Herschel T. Vinyard Jr. "We
are committed to working with lo-
cal governments and stakeholders to


implement both long- and short-term
strategies to address nutrient impacts
in the Santa Fe River basin."
This new funding is in addition to
over $25 million in projects recently
committed by local stakeholders to
achieve restoration and monitoring in
the Santa Fe River basin.
In February, DEP culminated more
than two years of work with local
governments and environmental and
agricultural stakeholders to develop
and adopt a Basin Management Ac-
tion Plan (BMAP), a five-year blue-
print for reducing nutrients in the
Santa Fe River. During the plan de-
velopment, restoration partners iden-
tified nutrient and irrigation manage-
ment as the two key categories of
agricultural practices that need to be
addressed in order to achieve restora-
tion.
This partnership will achieve both.
The funds, which come from the
state's TMDL program appropria-
tion, will be used to retrofit existing
irrigation systems to more efficiently
distribute water and incorporate the
practice of fertigation. This involves
the application of fertilizers, soil
amendments, or other water-soluble
products through an irrigation sys-


tem. The practice of fertigation will
increase water conservation and save
money for growers as well.
The benefits of fertigation include:
Increased nutrient absorption by
plants.
Reduction in fertilizer and chemi-
cals needed.
Reduced leaching to the water
table.
Reduction in water usage due to
the plant's resulting increased root
mass' ability to trap and hold water.
Application of nutrients at the
precise time they are needed and at
the rate they are utilized.
The grower's ability to change
fertilizer program during the grow-
ing season in order to adjust for fruit,
flower and root development.
"These reductions in water use and
nutrient loading will benefit both the
river, and the plants and animals that
reside in and around it. It will also
benefit the farmers, by saving them
money by decreasing their fertilizer
and fuel use and potentially increas-
ing crop yields," said Suwannee
River Water Management District
Executive Director Ann Shortelle.
"Most importantly, applying this
technology, which includes retro-fit-


ting center pivot irrigation systems,
will speed up implementation of the
Santa Fe BMAP and allow restora-
tion to begin even sooner."
This effort demonstrates the dedi-
cation of local governments, busi-
nesses and stakeholders to the resto-
ration of the Santa Fe River by reduc-
ing the nonpoint source discharges of
pollutants that end up in the river and
will help achieve water quality stan-
dards and designated uses established
by DEP.
The phased approach outlined in
the BMAP involves implementation
of actions such as agricultural and ur-
ban best management practices, im-
proved stormwater management and
increased wastewater reuse alongside
activities such as continued water
quality sampling to better control and
understand the sources of these pol-
lutants.
The implementation of BMAP ac-
tions will decrease the levels of nu-
trients that ultimately end up in the
Santa Fe River and its associated
springs.

New grain elevator

A large crane slowed traffic on State Road 26 recently as drivers
slowed down to see what was going on at Suwannee Valley Feeds.
According to Donald McElroy of Suwannee Valley Feeds, the crane
was replacing a 30-year-old grain elevator with a new 130-foot grain
elevator. "It's a facelift," McElroy said, of the improvements being
made at Suwannee Valley Feeds, a local business that primarily mixes
feedfor local grazing dairies and beef producers.

Smith Farms recognized at CARES dinner


Rantz and Stephanie Smith, along
with their daughters Makenzie and
Kylie, were recognized last week at
the 12th Annual County Alliance for
Responsible Environmental Steward-
ship (CARES) dinner.
Smith Farms of Bell Inc. was
among 22 agriculture producers
recognized for their environmental
stewardship.
The CARES farmers were recog-
nized and congratulated by Florida
Agriculture Commissioner Adam
Putnam and Florida Farm Bureau
President John Hoblick at the
UF/IFAS Suwannee Valley Ag-
riculture Extension Center in Live
Oak. Don Quincey, Suwannee River
Water Management District Govern-
ing Board Chairman, and Herschel T.
Vinyard Jr., Secretary of the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection, were among the dignitaries
who attended and spoke at the event.
The Florida Farm Bureau and the
Suwannee River Partnership (SRP)
created CARES to bring agricultural
associations, public agencies and
institutions, and farmers together to
increase environmental awareness on
farms. Through the program, farmers
voluntarily implement conservation
best management practices (BMPs)
designed to protect and save water.
Farmers who implement BMPs
through the SRP, which administers
the CARES program in the Suwan-
nee and Santa Fe river basins, save an
estimated 1 billion gallons of water
annually and achieve a nitrogen re-
duction of 3,250 tons per year. The
SRP has set aside about $365,000
for cost share programs for irrigation
system retrofits and other water- and
fertilizer-efficient equipment and
techniques for fiscal year 2012-2013.
"Through the use of advanced tech-
nology and environmental practices,
farmers are conserving groundwater
and reducing nutrient loading in our
rivers, streams and springs, and at the
same time maintaining their profit-
ability," said SRP Coordinator Hugh
Thomas. Farmers in the CARES pro-
gram participate in a State of Florida
BMP program. Participating agencies
help the farmer select and implement
farm plans which include nutrient
and irrigation management. To main-
tain CARES status farmers must con-
tinue to operate and maintain conser-
vation practices over time. For more
information, contact Hugh Thomas at
386.362.1001.

In an unprecedented move on the part of the NCAA
against the University of Pennsylvania on Monday, July
23, 2012, the school known as Penn State received a series
of explosive penalties for the leadership of the university
and Nittany Lions football program failing to handle the
serious actions of assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky.
The commissioner of the NCAA Mark Emmert said, "Our
goal is not to just to be punitive, but to make sure the
University establishes an athletic culture and daily mindset
in which football will never again be placed ahead of
educating, nurturing, and protecting young people ... to
insist that athletics programs provide positive moral
models for our students, enhance the integrity of higher
education, and promote the values of civility, honesty and
responsibility. "
Mr. Emmert best described the problem not only at Penn
State but in the mindset of nearly the whole country when
he referred to the "athletic culture and daily mindset" that
would allow such a thing to take place for so many years.
The deep seeded nature of man has been to thrive upon a
culture of fleshly entertainment. Sports teams generate
billions of dollars every year. Players are paid enormous
salaries and franchises spend and receive millions of
dollars for the sole purpose of entertainment. Stadiums are
built to hold tens of thousands of people who revel in their
frenzied desires for a piece of leather.
The wise man said, "Is there anything of which it may be
said, "See, this is new"? It has already been in ancient
times before us" (Ecclesiastes 1:10). The Colosseum in
Rome could seat 50,000 spectators (small compared to
today). Its sole purpose was to entertain. The Colosseum


Back to School
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
Monday, Aug. 13, to prepare for the
upcoming school year.
The Gilchrist County Journal is
now collecting school supplies for
local students that will be distributed
at all Trenton and Bell schools.

was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles
such as mock sea battles, animal hunts, and executions -
entertainment. The culture allowed for this base level of
morality so they would be entertained. It was an accepted
means of enjoyment.
When the moral fiber of the nation unravels to the base
levels of the fleshly desire the end result is removal of all
moral relatives. How could the leadership at Penn State
allow such a travesty? The answer is simple: nothing would
stand in the way of the god of football and Penn State is not
the only place this moral depravity exists. As a nation we
are reaping the whirlwind of relative truth that tells us that
good is evil and evil is good (Isaiah 5:20). The Romans
slaughtered one another in the Colosseum for the same
reason we worship the gods of entertainment found on
college campus, Hollywood, sports parks, theme parks,
television, etc.
The nation is filled with indignation by the actions of Penn
State and Jerry Sandusky but barely notice the inroads of
the homosexual community in our society. What Sandusky
did is no different than the culture of homosexuality. Today
morality is based upon the fleshly-desire-self-centered
culture of Me. "In their case the god of this world has
blinded the minds of the unbelievers, to keep them from
seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is
the image of God" (2 Corinthians 4:4).
We have yet to fill our stadiums with victims to slaughter
as the gladiators (a popular movie of our time depicts young
people killing one another for sport "Hunger Games").
What will our athletic culture or mindset be tomorrow? God
only knows.

(Kent Heaton)


United for Excellence!


Elect


Candidate for

Superintendent of

Gilchrist County

Schools


Questions from the Campaign:

Why elect Christie McElroy as Superintendent of Schools?

Because she always puts the needs of students first.


To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
Let me introduce you to the Christie McElroy that I know.
Christie is a Christian. She has the moral excellence to lead our schools
with honor and integrity that will ensure the respect of others.
Christie is family-oriented. As a wife.and mother, she knows the value
of the home in children's development. She will encourage the active
participation of parents in their children's education.
Christie is a child advocate. She has the best interests of children at heart
and will seek the best educational environment for them.
Christie knows the value of education and the doors of the future this
will open. She encourages life-long acquisition of skills for children to
become learners throughout their lives.
Christie is a dedicated worker. She is task-oriented and focused on the
completion of the job. Her work ethic leaves no stone unturned to find the
best plan in organizing the task.
Christie is a great listener. She knows the value of information from all
involved parties. A leader takes information or facts from all sources
before deciding the course of action.
Christie is a "go-to-person". Each of us has a person that we trust and
admire and respect that we "go-to" when we need some help. Christie is
this kind of person.
When you think of all these attributes, Christie would be an asset to any
organization. Christie has chosen education as her career, because she
loves children and wants to be a part of their development into successful
adults. She has a love of learning and seeing the "light come on"; this is
what education is all about.
We in Gilchrist County have come to expect excellence in our schools.
Christie McElroy can lead our district on this continued path of excel-
lence. Let her help our children on their path of being life-long learners as
our next School Superintendent.
Sincerely,
Judy Overstreet

To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
In this walk of life, I've learned that there are some things worth sharing
with others. My family and I are blessed to have Mrs. Christie McElroy
in our lives first and foremost because of her loving devotion. She worked
very hard to see that my children got the best care and education. I saw
that it wasn't just with my kids she shared her love. It was with all that
was in her path. Mrs. McElroy is not only dedicated in the schools but in
the community as well with the same caring spirit. She and her family
have done so many good things for me such as giving clothes, food, furni-
ture, etc. I remember one night my stove stopped working due to over
excessive use which means I love to cook. The next day Mrs. Christie
called and asked, "Ms. Wanda, do you need a stove?" I laughed and said,
"Yes ma'am." She said, "Well, I have one for you." That same night I
went up town and when I got back home, she and Mr. Michael with the
help of my boys had taken the old stove out and put in the new one. I
didn't expect that but that is Mrs. Christie, above and beyond.
I remember when my son, Brandon and her son Brandon were in school.
She always helped out during their sporting events, cooking and taking
pictures. My son loved her dirt cake. She would always make one for the
boys. So one day I asked her to fix me a dirt cake. She did. I must say it
was good!
I could go on and on about Mrs. McElroy. I wanted you to know her as
a mother and a friend. She would be a great Superintendent for the
Gilchrist County Schools. I want you to know that my family and I love
her and pray the Lord will always keep and bless her and her family. She
is a flower and will bloom wherever she is planted. I wish her all the best.
Sincerely,
Wanda Mathis & Family


To the Voters of Gilchrist County,
On behalf of my entire family it is both my honor and pleasure
to recommend candidate, Christie Lynn McElroy as Gilchrist
County Superintendent of Schools.
As a parent of a 2008 Trenton High School graduate and an
upcoming 2014 graduate both of whom have attended Trenton
schools since kindergarten, I have had the great pleasure of work-
ing with Christie on many occasions. It was during a particularly
difficult situation that I first met Christie in her role as guidance
counselor at Trenton Elementary. I will be forever grateful for the
care and concern with which she developed and executed a perfect
plan that met and even exceeded our needs and expectations. It
was through this experience I learned just what a humble and
gifted person Christie is. She never shied away from any
challenge and she consistently impressed me in her advocacy of
her students proving over and over again that she has the best
interest of her students and school at large at heart.
Nothing is more precious to any parent than their children's
health, education, and future and I know I am not alone in saying
there is no one better than Christie to represent our students,
faculty, staff, and schools with her genuine drive to make a differ-
ence in the future of Gilchrist County Schools.
Respectfully,
Cheryl L. Boland

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers
1 first want to thank the Cathy family for upholding their values and operating one of the besl lFst s foodl Irainchis,
I have ever had the pleasure of eating in. I have been a patron of the Chick-fil-A restaurant chain since I lirst picked
up a chicken sandwich and a large waffle fries many years ago. They are simply the best.
On a more important note, I truly support a business that stands by the moral values and closes on Sundays to allow
their employees and their families to practice their religious values in attending the church services ol their choice.
Evangelist Billy Graham said it best, "Chick-lil-A serves each customer with excellence, and treats everyone like
a neighbor. 1 appreciate the Cathy family's support for God's definition of marriage," Graham added.
I'm old fashioned and for those that know me, well that is alright. 1 don't try to impose my perspective on anyone,
but 1 will not tolerate someone imposing his or her rudeness on me. It is just the way I grew up. 1 had great parents
and they instilled in me the manners of respect, honesty and to treat everyone the way you would like to be treated.
The Golden Rule, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." It is just that simple.

Elect


Tommy


Langford
for


Tax Collector


Qualified ..* Responsible Dedicated

If elected as your next Tax Collector, I will get certified. I've been told the total cost is around
$2,000.00. I will gladly pay for it, at no cost to the taxpayers. I have never submitted an invoice for
reimbursement to the county and I will continue to honor that.
I have researched the possibility of remodeling and/or expanding the tax collector's office to
provide better customer service and more working and storage room for the employees in the
office. I will work with the Board of County Commissioners and others to try and make this a
reality.
I have and will continue to visit other counties to see how they operate. I have gathered ideas on
ways to take Gilchrist County Tax Collector's office into the 21st century. Technology is big and
grows bigger every day.
All new employees will be cross-trained. I have found out by visiting other counties this is more
beneficial. It allows each employee to wait on anyone that needs service, at any desk, whether it be
tags, taxes, licenses, etc.
Implementing Driver's licenses in the office could and may become mandated by the state. I will
research and try to provide an opportunity for Gilchrist County to have a driver's license office. I
believe it can be done and be a great asset to the county.
I also believe it is important that all constitutional officers meet periodically to share ideas and
help direct the future of Gilchrist County. With the combination of Clerk of Court, Supervisor of
Elections Tax Collector's, Property Appraiser and Sheriff's.Office alongside the County Adminis-
trator and department leaders, they have what it takes to drive this county forward.
I will continue to work with legislation as I have in the past 10 years, to look for what is best for
Gilchrist County when they are making the laws that govern us. I worked hard with the county
staff and Tallahassee to reduce the Medicaid bills impact on our county. We were very successful.
It was about $350,000.00 and now it will be about $60-$70,000.00. I will continue to write the
letters and make the phone calls for the citizens of our county. I am very politically involved, as
most of you know, and will remain that way.
I believe North Florida Broadband Authority will be a huge opportunity for all Gilchrist County
residents to have high speed internet service at their business and or residence. We now live in an
internet world and it is vital and a MUST for all. This is a great opportunity for our county to bring
economic possibilities to many. New businesses demand it! This will give me a chance as your Tax
Collector, to expand my service and make it more convenient for the taxpayers. I will proceed on
my own time to bring affordable broadband service to each and every resident.
When it comes to management, I have owned my own business for over 30 years and worked
employees. My almost 10 years as county commissioner has allowed me to be involved with many
budget workshops. Finalizing all count, budgets, including the tax collector's office. I have been
in leadership positions and made hard decisions. I am a people person and have always put the
customer first. I work hard as a team member with office and county staff.
I look forward to visiting and talking with as many residents as I can. If I have missed you please
feel free to send me an email and visit my website. www.vote4tommy.net
If you have any questions or concerns contact me at 352-222-4821 or e-mail me at

Please remember me, Tommy Langford, on Aug. 14th and vote for me for tax collector and you
will not be disappointed.

Thank you!

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


It has been so hot lately that I've
been trying to think up meals that
are cold verses hot. Last weekend I
found a bag of shrimp in the freezer
and decided to make Shrimp Salad.
Truthfully, it has been several years
since I had made shrimp salad and
I had forgotten just how good and
refreshing it is on a hot, hot summer
day.
The following recipe is very simple
to make and, as always, the better
shrimp you have the better your
salad will taste. Try hard to find wild
caught shrimp from either Florida or
Georgia. Boiling shrimp is simple to
do; just don't overcook them.
Start by filling a large sauce pan
about half full of water and then quite
a bit of salt. Slice half of a lemon
into water and add about 2 teaspoons
of Old Bay Seasoning, then add three
cloves of peeled and sliced up garlic.
Bring water to a rolling boil and


then add shrimp. Cook for about 3
minutes then sample to see if shrimp
are done. Take out one shrimp and,
holding it in a dish towel because its
boiling hot, peel it and taste. If it is
just done, quickly pour shrimp into a
colander to drain.
If you were going to eat the shrimp
boiled at this point sprinkle on a little
more Old Bay and toss them.
But since Shrimp Salad is on the
menu after they cool enough to
handle peel the shrimp and cut each
shrimp up into about three pieces.
Use the following recipe to make the
salad at least two hours before you
plan to serve it.
This salad should be served with
Captain's Wafers crackers or on a
bed of lettuce surrounded by grape
tomatoes. It works well to fill a half
of a bell pepper or half an avocado
with this salad also.

SVote and Re-Elect

Kenrick D. Thomas

Gilchrist County Commissioner

District 5 on August 14


I've been asked why the Tea Party has Mr. Buddy Vickers and myself on
. their list of candidates for election. I have a few people who like me in
the Tea Party and I appreciate that. If you look at the Straw Poll results
you will see clearly that I am not their choice. Mr. Buddy Vickers
received 52.17% to my 36.23%, and I am ok with the results.
I am running on my past record. For the past 7.5 years you, the voter,
know what kind of person I am. I will and have always tried to help
anyone who has asked for my help. I don't issue water permits, but I am
very concerned about our natural resources.
I don't know what will come before me the next 4 years, but if re-
elected I will always look after you and our county to the best of my abil-
ity.
Vote on August 14. I will be on everyone's ticket. A vote for Kenrick D.
Thomas is a vote for Proven Leadership and someone you can trust. I
will help if you call.
Thank you for your consideration.

Public Safety Coordinating Council to meet Aug. 7
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Public Safety Coordinating Council will meet on Tuesday, August 7, 2012, at 2 p.m. in
the County Judge hearing room #1006. This meeting is being held for the judicial officers to review the current
Gilchrist County Courthouse security plan with other members of the committee.
The Gilchrist County Commission Chairman will direct this meeting as he identified the minutes of the January
23, 2009, meeting. A Chairman of the Public Safety Coordinating council will be elected. The Gilchrist County
Sheriff will present and review the Jail Inspection report. The Committee will discuss the proposed Courthouse
Security Plan. The committee will discuss other issues that appear to be valid concerning this security matter.
The Eighth Judicial Circuit Court is in the process of reviewing and updating the security and emergency man-
agement administrative orders involving all six counties in the Eighth Circuit. A draft of the Judicial proposed
revisions to the Gilchrist County Courthouse security plan was circulated for review and comment by the judges to
the Clerk of Court, Sheriff and the Gilchrist County Commission. The security plan addresses a number of issues
and procedures, including the screening of citizens entering the judicial wing of the courthouse.
The Gilchrist County Sheriff currently provides three deputies to staff the security and screening station of the
Judicial wing of the courthouse for approximately 20 hours a week. The judges request that one deputy cover the
remaining 20 hours per week, resulting in at least one deputy on duty from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each weekday.
The additional 20 hours per week could be broken up among the three current deputies who provide court security
and screening.
The Judges report that because Gilchrist County is in a rural setting, it is not immune from random or planned
acts of violence. The Judges seek to enhance the level of security in the judicial wing of the Gilchrist County
Courthouse to ensure the safety of all citizens, jurors, attorneys, and other members of the public who have to con-
duct business in the court. Judges Robert E. Roundtree, Jr. Chief Judge of the Eighth Judicial Circuit and Gilchrist
County Judge Edward Philman signed this letter and sent copies to Gilchrist County officials.

Custodian of County Funds.
Currently, I participate in

bined total of over four
million dollars. With


lawmakers making drastic
cuts in County Budgets, I will work diligently with other elected officials to present an accu-
rate accounting of the funds to the Commissioners so that educated decisions can be made
regarding the taxpayers' monies
Along with keeping an accurate account of the different budgets, the Clerk's Office must
collect and disburse child support payments, collect court costs, fees and fines, collect and
disburse judgment monies, just to name a few. I will continue checks and balances so that a
balanced budget is maintained and is available to the County Commissioners and the

On Saturday, August 4, from 7:00

giving away school supplies, shoes,
and clothing for children and teens
(Grades K-12) who have a need and
are unable to purchase these items.
This is our gift to our community and
will not accept donations of items or
money from non-church members!
Remember, this is a first-come,
first-served event. There will be NO


"If 1 am a Christian, instead of
learning how to solve relationship
problems, can't 1 just pray that
nothing bad happens?"
Not surprisingly, this question was
asked by a young person. 1 say this
because any of us who have lived
more than a few years already know
the answer, yet we may still struggle
to understand the reason. The Bible
records the words of Jesus on this
matter in John 16:33,"...in this world,
you will have trouble." No question
about it and no getting around it...the
trouble is here. In the original Greek
language of the New Testament, this
word trouble means "pressure". Daily
we face the pressure to measure up
to the world's standards, pressure to
achieve and accomplish and succeed.
We also deal with pressure within


household items, furniture, etc. And
EVERYTHING IS FREE! If you
have any questions, you may call our
church office at 386-935-3575.

our relationships...the pressure of
wanting our own way, of living up
to another's expectations, and the
pressure of getting our own needs
met. These are real issues that we
face in real relationships. James 1:2-
4 speaks of this struggle from a new
perspective:
"Consider it pure joy, my brothers,
whenever you face trials of many
kinds, because you know that
the testing of your faith develops
perseverance. Perseverance must
finish its work so that you may be
mature and complete, not lacking
anything."
According to these verses, our
struggles are actually opportunities
for us to mature, for our character to
be shaped and for us to be transformed
into the person that God intended
us to be. Perseverance means to be
steadfast, and in the New Testament
it represents the characteristic of a
man who is not swerved from his
deliberate purpose and his loyalty to
faith by even the greatest trials and
sufferings. This deliberate purpose in
our lives and in our relationships is to
honor God. We do this best by being
the proof that doing life His way
works! When the pressure is great
to be selfish, we can choose to give;
when the pressure is great to fight for
our own way, we can choose what is
best for the relationship...these are
the tests that develop steadfastness.
Rarely does God call us to passively
sit by while He works in our life, but
rather He gives tis opportunities to
participate with Him in the work He
is doing.
In answer to the original question,
of course we can pray that bad things
won't happen, and sometimes God


will answer "yes", but when we see
how God uses the struggles in our
lives, we can better understand why
le allows them...and it's because
our hearts matter!
Blessings, Angie

Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers

news


Submitted by Rosemary McDaniel,
PIO
During the month of June 2012,
Citizens Patrol cars were driven 1,558
miles and volunteers contributed 164
hours while patrolling city and county
roads and springs and assisting with
traffic control at the rodeo arena,
school crossings, fishing tournament,
Trenton and Bell graduations, the
gas line explosion, and a funeral. A
volunteer also assisted at the Trenton


and Bell food pantries.
CARE (Check and Respond
Everyday) volunteers made 114 calls
and 28 visits to residents enrolled in
the program.
The next general membership
meeting will be held on August 7, at
6 p.m. in the Sheriff's Office meeting
room. All residents are invited to
attend and learn more about what
the Sheriff's Volunteers do to serve
Gilchrist County.


Leadership
The past 18 years, I have
been mentored in roles of
leadership. My leadership Elect Tracey
skills have been validated as
I completed the Leadership W ILKERSON R
Academy Training and have For
put into practice what I have Clerk of the
learned. Through the imple- Circuit Court
mentation of techniques
learned in the academy, I
have been able to improve
the work flow management by giving the employees the training, the tools and the confi-
dence to be successful at their jobs. I am also a member of the Lead Team which is a select
group of individuals who help plan the actions and endeavors of the organization. I manage
a System Support staff, an Instructional staff, a Database Administrator's staff and an
Administrative Assistant staff.
Equally important is'the relationship the Clerk must develop and maintain with the differ-
ent departments within Gildhrist County and with state and local government officials. My
goal is to build working relationships with each of the departments so that no department is
an island unto itself.

Elect GABRIEL *


COMMUNITY*COMMITMENT *JUSTICE
Your vote for Gabriel Maitin for Sheriff means you will reap the benefits of less crime, a better community relationship with the
Sheriff's Office, and more effective and efficient law enforcement services. The power of your vote will determine who gets into
office and hopefully will pave the way to future success. Conversely, failing to vote could allow the wrong candidate to get into
office for the wrong reason. Each sheriff candidate has his own motive, some good while others may simply want to supplement
their retirement. For me it is clear-cut, I cherish my family and this community that I have lived and worked in all my life. I have
demonstrated this through my, years of volunteer work. I have dedicated myself to coaching and mentoring the youth of Gilchrist
County for the past 7 years. 1 will admit, my team did not always win every game but I used each game as a teaching point.
Whether you win or lose there will be valuable lessons to learn. When you win, "have humility" and when you're less than
perfect, "accept the adversity and challenge yourself to be a better person." Life has taught me that it is more advantageous to
travel the path of humility and valor rather than the path of ego and pride.
I'm not the type of person who lives in tlke community only show up just months before the election and simply makes promises.
I will be the kind of sheriff who will stand tall for what I believe in and live my values, the same values I received from my
parents and the ones 1 have instilled in my children.
Community Trust must be the price of entry into the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office. This leads me to two important character-
istics that are a function of Community Trust. They are CHARACTER and COMPETENCE. Your integrity is a component of
your character as well as your motive and your intent with the community you serve, while your competence is comprised of your
capabilities, skills, and your past performance. As a 17 year law enforcement veteran right here in this community and the recog-
nition of being Trooper of the Year in my district two years straight, I know I have the competence to deliver the results above and
beyond the average expectations. I have always believed that one of the best indicators of future performance is past perfor-
mance. Additionally, I'm a man of honor and principle who will do exactly what he says he will do and will go to work every day
with the mindset of building Community Trust.
The majority of registered voters don't vote in some counties. Some studies indicate three-quarters don't make the polls. The
problem may be that voters don't know enough about the candidates to vote. I submit to you my email address
gabrielmartin4sheriff@gmail.com and my personal cell phone number 352-221-2375. If you are concerned that
you don't know enough about me, please email me and let me know. I will meet with you in the place of your
choice and answer the tough questions. VOTE GABRIEL MARTIN FOR SHERIFF ON AUGUST 14, 2012.
Best Regards,
Gabriel Martin

I want to thank everyone who came by
The Happy Days Old Tyme Soda Fountain
and got the "scoop" on Mitchell
SYour encouragement and support is appreciated.


Now for "The Rest of the Story"
The Wise Women of the Drugstore Soda Fountain
The third wise woman's influence began before the others, and she left an indelible imprint on my life. She lovingly taught me to be truthful, fair, and
considerate of others. By her example I.learned to work hard, be persistent, and not give up when things become difficult. A wonderful woman, she
sacrificed that I might have a better life, and lived her life that all could see her goodness. My mother, Emma Gentry, a wise woman, instilled in me
-good character and conscience. Mom, I still hear your words today. I love you.
My mother worked at the drugstore in the 1960s and early 1970s, and the soda fountain was a favorite part of her job. She died in 1996.
The wise women from the drugstore soda fountain taught me many lessons of life. I thank God, for he is the only one who could use "soda jerks" to
impart such wisdom to me. Now that the same soda fountain is open at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe, I will remember these wise women, each
time I drop by for a chocolate ice cream soda, or old fashioned cherry coke.


I ask for your vote! Thank you, /A-,

Letter of Endorsement

To the Residents of Gilchrist County,

My name is Michael Daniels and I am writing this letter concerning the race
for Sheriff in our county.

First let me tell you that I am a 28 year retired police officer. During that
time I was involved in every aspect of police work. As a homeowner in Gil-
christ County it is very important to me that we elect the right candidate for
this very important job.

After' thoroughly researching each candidate let me assure you that Robert
Roux is the most qualified candidate. He has deep ties to our community, and
has shown dedication to his profession with his 27 years of law enforcement
experience. He has extensive up to date training with his department. He is
willing under the "Mutual Aid Pac" to bring in additional help from other
agencies to assist during natural disasters or if needed to combat street level
crimes, organized crime or whatever the situation calls for. Mr. Roux has
shown to-me not only his capability for this very important job, but that he
has the most experience covering all aspects of law enforcement which the
other candidates just don't have.

For this reason I am endorsing Mr. Robert Roux for Sheriff of Gilchrist
County. I hope that you will take the time to come out and vote for Mr. Roux
in the August primary.

The Great Suwannee
River Cleanup 2012
Submitted by Fritzi Olson
For two years running, Current
Problems has collaborated with the
Suwannee River Wilderness Trail to
coordinate cleanup of the Suwannee
River from the Georgia state line
to the Gulf of Mexico. Each year
hundreds of volunteers worked
tirelessly along the shorelines, from
boats, from kayaks, and on scuba to
remove literally tons of trash!
The 2012 cleanup will occur
during a three-month window from
September through November along
both the Suwannee River and the
Santa Fe River. Businesses, civic
clubs, fishing and boating groups,
churches, government agencies, non-
profits, chambers of commerce, and
groups of friends are all encouraged
to participate. Go to the event map at
http://g.co/maps/qctyf to determine
your section based on mileposts and
GPS coordinates. Then register your
group, the date of your cleanup, and
your river section online at http://
tinyurl.com/cg6heur. Shortly after
registration, your cleanup will appear
on the event map.


*********** ****
I'm Crystal Jones, Republican candidate for Gilchrist County
Clerk of Court. The Clerk, elected by the people, plays an
essential role in providing services that assist virtually every
resident in Gilchrist County. The Clerk of Court's office is a place 4
where public trust and confidence are built in local government.
Beit' conservative, I value the Constitution, small government,
and ~~cat responsibility. My five years of higher education and
common sense will continue to 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 that revenue is tax dollars taken off the backs of
hard-working citizens.
Gilchrist County is in sound fiscal shape. We have had no layoffs, no cut in services, we
continue to have clean audits, and our assets continue to exceed our liabilities. Below is a
breakdown of Gilchrist County's Revenue and Expenses from the Fiscal Year Ended
September 2011.

I encourage all Gilchrist County citizens to exercise your right to vote. 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. Please don't mistake my kindness for weakness. 1
want to rein in wasteful 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 generations. I'm young enough to keep up with the ever-changing technologies and
legislation. If you are looking for someone who knows the value of not only HARDwork
but SMARTwork then I respectfully ask for your vote in my very first political campaign.

with productions of "A Murder of
Scarecrows" in the fall; "A Little
Christmas Spirit for Christmas;"
"Master of Time," a musical tribute
to some of Broadway's finest; and
"Love, Laughter, and Lucci" in the
spring. Nominees from each of these
productions were made during the
run of each show by the audience
members attending the show. Final
voting is done by the contributors
of SVP and active members. The

numbers from Broadway musicals.
Elizabeth Phillips, Kelci Grant,

My name is Bobby Schultz and I am asking for your A
support and your vote for Sheriff of Gilchrist County.
I firmly believe in the concept of leadership by example.
However, this is a difficult concept to practice if you've
never done the things you expect your employees to do. I
have worked my way through the ranks of law enforce- -
ment in numerous positions and I have a firm understand-
ing of what is required of the employees. I have been
where they are, and I have done what they 're doing.
When casting your vote for Gilchrist County Sheriff,
there are some important things to consider:
* Which candidate has the most proven and applied
experience with which to lead the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office?
* Which candidate's experience is closer aligned with the.duties required of the sheriff?
* Which candidate has a clear plan of enhancing services with little or no cost to
the taxpayers?


My Proven and Applied experience:
Dispatcher County Correctional Officer State Correctional Officer Patrol Offi-
cer Criminal Investigator Evidence Storage Manager Crime Scene
Tech/Supervisor Latent Print Examiner Public Information Officer Investiga-
tive Sergeant State Attorney's Investigator Public Defender's Investigator -
Civilian Police Mentor/Advisor in Afghanistan Gilchrist, Dixie, Levy Drug Task
Force Liaison DEA North Florida Clandestine (Meth Lab) Enforcement Team U.
S. Customs Service, Blue Lightning Task Force various other local, state and
federal task forces conducting joint investigations.

Throughout my career I have responded to, investigated and solved complex cases such
as homicides, burglaries, sex crimes, narcotics, robberies, crimes against the elderly and
children,, agricultural crimes, identity thefts, various financial crimes and numerous other
crimes both violent and non-violent in nature.
Because I grew up, worked and currently reside here in Gilchrist County, I am well.
aware of the challenges our county faces in the area of law enforcement. My administra-
tion will perform its duties using the principles of leadership, accountability and consis-
tency while applying a common sense approach to our everyday operations.
For more information on my qualifications, my goals for the Sheriff's Office or to
contact me for any reason,
please call me at 352-

Card of Thanks
Thank you to Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation in Gilchrist County.
My mom, Helen Vogel, passed away
on July 12, 2012, at Ayers. As always
there are always many phone calls
to make to let friends and relatives
know. And as always, in this day and
age, there are suspicious questions
like, was she looked after properly,
kept clean and not in any pain etc.
No, not at this place 1 say, not at this
place; this place is special. She spent
her last three years at a very special
place. Thanks to all the staff from
top to bottom.
She was laid to rest on July 28 at
Curlew Hills Memory Gardens next
to her late husband, August M. Vogel
in Palm Harbor.

Discovery Day

Camp at

Lower Suwannee

Refuge
Submitted
Last Saturday kids who love the
outdoors joined the Refiuge Ranger
for Discovery Day Camp at the
Lower Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge. Local children as well as
visitors from Orlando joined in the
free fun.
With Refuge cameras, the kids
hiked the River Trail and took photos
to add to their new nature journals.
They hiked to the pollinator garden
for great shots of butterflies, learned
about the bats in the bat house and
went down the River Trail to the
Suwannee. They spotted small grass
frogs hopping across the dirt road, so
after lunch, they studied Florida's tree
frogs. Everyone left with a toy frog,
bat ring, a journal, and a coloring
book.
Only two more Discovery Day
Camps remain at the Lower Suwannee
National Wildlife Refuge: August 2
and 16 from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m.
Make reservations for the hayride
and adventure through the habitat-
rich Refuge. The new classroom has
colorful, fun learning tools to keep
your student's brain engaged in the
outdoors, so don't miss out. Call the
Ranger at 352-493-0238 for more
information or to make reservations.

Proven Conservative Republican

James Jett is a conservative Christian who upholds
our values in his life and work.

As County Commissioner, Jett refused to vote for budgets
with tax increases. The media often referred to Jett as
"The Tax Payers' Friend."

As Clerk of Court, Jett economized the courthouse, returning
over $8 million to taxpayers, instead of spending it in his budget.


In


Congress, Jett will serve with the same integrity.

"If we ever lose our 2nd Amendment
Right to bear arms, we will lose our
freedom within one generation. Jett's
S / strong opposition to those who would
the destroy lawful gun ownership has
earned my endorsement."
-Rep. Charles Van Zant,
Florida House of Representatives

E sIFa
Public fiilsars e itit
and by Po~ic teid.


Jett's background as a graduate of the FBI National Academy,
a Police Officer, County Commissioner and Circuit Court Clerk,
Wi has proven his values as a Constitutional conservative."
As a US Secret Service Agent, his son Tyler makes us proud -
and proves that the best of America comes from
Small communities like ours.
Jett's strong personal faith and character are the reasons
I trust and endorse James Jett for Congress.
