Trenton police chief 1W
n.. .. vai. 's .

gets a raise .I ..
S, -, , .., . ,


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Trenton City Commissioners
voted unanimously last week to
give Police Chief Jim Raven a pay
increase.
Raven was hired on April 12,
2011, at a $39,500 annual salary.
At the time, Raven asked to be paid
$42,500, but city officials took a wait
and see approach before raising the
police chief's salary. After one year
on the job, Trenton City Manager
Taylor Brown evaluated the police
chief's job performance not long ago
and said, "It was probably the best
evaluation I've done."
After hearing Brown's good report,
the Trenton City Commissioners
voted on Thursday, Aug. 16 to raise
the police chief's annual salary to
$42,500.
The Trenton Police Department
has been much talked about lately
within the community as residents


F-


Chief Jim Raven


complain about the increase in traffic
stops within the city limits. In July,
Raven reported making two traffic
stops, while his two officers made a
combined 47 traffic stops last month.


Santa Fe River is


expected to flood
The National Weather Service in Jacksonville is predicting the Suwannee
River and the Santa Fe River to reach flood stages on Friday.
A significant rise in the Santa Fe River at Fort White is associated with
widespread heavy rain. The latest stage, reported on Monday, Aug. 20 was
22.4 feet, which is just below the action stage of 23 feet.
The river was forecasted to reach flood stage at 24 feet around 8 a.m. on
Wednesday, Aug. 22.
Residents along the river are urged to take action to protect threatened
property from flood waters.

increase
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commissioners agreed to give all
Gilchrist County employees a $600
pay increase beginning with 'the
2012-13 new fiscal year.
It was a unanimous decision, made
by the Board on Monday afternoon.
The commissioners agreed the actual
amount of the increase was of greater
benefit to the lower wage scale
employees in place of a percentage
of their annual salary.

Permit for music festival denied


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
held a public hearing to consider
Special Use Permit 12-05, Gilchrist
Fundraisers and Music Park .by
High Springs Lions Club, Inc. and
Lanier Smith, agents for Lowell
Chesborough owner of the 115-acre,
21-lot subdivision.


The commission heard a
presentation from Lanier Smith,
who began to make concessions and
changes to the SUP application to
satisfy the disapproving neighbors
who had become upset over the noise,
garbage and traffic that the festival
crowds brought to the northeast
Gilchrist County neighborhood,


which is off State Road 47.
Smith told the commission and
Gilchrist County staff that the
entire application process involving
Gilchrist Fundraising and Music Park
has been a very trying experience and
he had made a lot of mistakes and
asked for forgiveness and patience
during his presentation. An agent

representing Lowell Chesborough,
Smith was dressed in a. lime green
t-shirt with the word "Staff' printed
on the back. He was dressed in attire
that he would have worn during one
of the music festivals, as he stood
at the podium Monday afternoon,
addressing the county commissioners.
Smith explained that the upcoming
September music program will
be the last festival in 2012 and
the organization will continue to
have turkey shoots and other club
functions on other property owned
by members of the Lions Club. He
told the commission that the Lions
Club will have four music festivals
a year, one each quarter and the Full
Moon program will be one of those
programs. He added that the drum
circle, which reportedly caused noise
complaints from neighbors has been
removed from the festival.
"We hope that these concessions
will be helpful and pleasing to the
residents in the neighborhood,"
Smith said.
Gilchrist County Commissioner
Randy Durden said that the board
could not consider the application
with Smith's verbal changes without
having a copy of .the proposed
changes in writing.
"There are too much and too many
changes being presented to consider,"
said Gilchrist County Attorney John
McPherson.
According to the county attorney,
the commission had to proceed with
the SUP application the way it was
presented to the county because the
County Planner, Laura Dedenbach
had based her research and report on
this information.
"Your presentation is trying to
appease the neighbors and they don't
know what you are proposing to
change," said County Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
"I am not going to rule on something
that I don't have a copy of the
changes being proposed before me,"
Commissioner Durden explained.
Durden made a motion to deny
a request to consider the changes
being presented to SUP 12-05.
Commissioner Sharon Langford gave
a second to the motion. Chairman
Tommy Langford called for a vote
and the board approved the action by
a 5-0 vote.
The Gilchrist County planner then
presented the Special Use application
to the commission in detail. She
recommended that the application
be denied because the uses are
inconsistent with the Comprehensive
Plan and Land Development
Regulations Code. The proposed uses
are inconsistent and incompatible
with the rural residential character
of the surrounding area, Dedenbach
said. Impacts from the proposed
uses, such as the noise and traffic,
cannot be mitigated with increased
buffering or additional conditions
on the operations of the music park.
Excessive vehicular traffic will be
generated on residential streets,
primarily NE 27th Lane. There is

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


School started this week. I can still
remember rushing around trying to
get everyone off to school. Truthfully
our children were lucky to get a bowl
of cereal before school and work.
Back in my younger days I usually
only made a real breakfast on Sunday
morning.
My grandchildren actually eat a
much better breakfast at our house
than my children ever did. The num-
ber one request is grits. We also eat
a lot of scrambled eggs with cheese
and once in a while I make muffins
for them.
I've always been a big fan of a
sweet muffin with my coffee in the
morning. The following muffin rec-
ipe is a good one and the cinnamon
reminds me a little of fall which I am
longing for these days.

Pancake

breakfast

will benefit

the military

By Carrie A. Mizell
The Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire
Department will hold a pancake
breakfast on Saturday, Sept. 1, to
benefit men and women serving in
the United States military and their
families.
Pancakes will be served from 7
a.m. to 11 a.m. at the fire department,
which is located at 5600 NE County
Road 340, in High Springs (north
Gilchrist County).
All proceeds from the pancake
breakfast will go to the Malcom
Randall VA Medical Center Fisher
House.
Built by generous public donations,
the Fisher House offers service mem-
bers and their families a comfortable
living situation during treatment for
traumatic, war-related medical cri-
ses. In most cases, the service mem-
bers are being treated far from home
and their stays are lengthy due to the
severity of injury or illness.
The Fisher House provides a home
away from home with 20 accessible
suites at its Gainesville location. The
Fisher House serves as a refuge to
veterans, military members and their
families in 52 counties in the North
Florida and South Georgia service re-
gion, along with others from around
the country who may come for spe-
ciality services, such as the Brain
Trauma Institute.


According to Patti Fabiani, execu-
tive director of the Gainesville Fisher
House Foundation, more than 31,000
service men and women wounded or
injured in Iraq or Afghanistan need
help.
"A 'Thank you for your service'
is no longer enough," Fabiani said.
"Give thanks and get involved."
On Saturday, Sept. 1, Gilchrist
County citizens will have a chance
to take pride in their country, and
say thank you to the young men and
women who go bravely into battle for
the freedoms we enjoy, by attending
the. Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire De-
partment's Pancake Breakfast.
It is sure to be a fundraiser like no
other!

STREETWISE


Despite all the doom and gloom
surrounding both the national and
global economy, there are always
companies that will manage to push
ahead despite facing a less than
an ideal economic environment.
However, I must constrain that
statement by once again pointing
out the need for, adding a stop loss
as a backstop order to protect your
profits. To see what I mean, consider
Coach (COH), one of my favorite
retail investment candidates.
When I last talked about the
Company a year ago, the shares were
selling for $54.78. My 2012 earnings
estimate was $3.40 per share and with
a 12-month target price on the shares
of $63 for an estimated capital gain of
15 percent. So how did the Company
perform? Earnings per share rose 21
percent to $3.53 from $2.92, yet the
shares recently closed at $54.33. So
while earnings came in well beyond
my forecast, there was virtually no
change in the share price over a 12-
month period, right? No, not quite.
Here is where a vigilant stance
with regard to your portfolio plays a
key role. During the month of March,
Coach's share price had topped $78,
well beyond my forecast. However,
after Coach released third quarter
earnings for the period ended March
31, the price of the shares began to
trend downward.
There was no good reason; sales
were up 17 percent when compared
to the year prior, while earnings
increased 24 percent. Nonetheless,
the prudent move would have been a
sell stop order at about $70. In doing
so, you would have sacrificed 10
percent of the run up in share price,
while still holding on to a 28 percent
capital gain.
So how do you know when to
definitively add a stop loss? You


estimate what you are willing to return
when a stock reaches or exceeds
a predetermined price projection,
in this case about 10 percent of the
,$79 share price, and be prepared to
sell. After which you watch from the
sidelines as you wait for the share
price to plateau, albeit at a lower
level.
Now comes your second decision
point. Do you repurchase the shares
if you sold, or purchase the shares
either as a new investor or on a
dollar-cost averaging basis if you
did not sell. The answer is easy to
pontificate on but more difficult to
implement. Essentially, you need to
do a full analysis on the company
and determine if the shares still make
investment sense.
Coach, famous for its expensive
leather hand bags; caters to the
wealthier part of society, those that
are less prone to feel the effects of
an economic downturn. Moreover,
Coach is able to maintain its panache
because many women. regard its
products with a near religious fervor.
Furthermore, Coach's sustained
focus on sales productivity at the


By Lauren Rudd


store level, merchandising, marketing
and strategic pricing, has helped the
Company to not only remain afloat in
a difficult consumer environment, but
drive comparable-store sales higher
as well.
For the fiscal year ended June 30,
Coach reported net sales of $4.76
billion, a 15 percent increase over the
prior year. Net income increased 18
percent to $1.04 billion from $881
million. In addition, as I mentioned
earlier, earnings per share rose 21
percent to $3.53 from $2.92.
During FY12 and FY11 the
Company recorded certain one-
time items, .including favorable
tax settlements. In both years
the Company made- charitable
contributions which precisely offset
the benefit of those settlements to net
income. Therefore, on a GAAP basis,
operating income for the fiscal year
2012 was $1.51 billion with a 31.7
percent operating margin and a SG&A
expense ratio was 41.0 percent, as
compared to operating income of
$1.30 billion and an operating margin
of 31.4 percent with a SG&A expense
ratio of 41.3 percent the prior year.
The intrinsic value of the shares
using a discounted earnings model,
with a conservative earnings growth
rate of 13,84 percent and a 15 percent
discount rate, is $92 per share. The
more conservative free cash flow to
the firm model produces anl intrinsic
value of $99 per share.
My earnings estimate for fiscal
2013 is $3.90, with a 12-month target
price on the shares of $66, for a 21
percent capital gain. There is also
an indicated dividend yield of 2.1
percent.

How To Survive School
(Kent Heaton)


The dog days of August usher in the beginning of school
as children walk for the first time into their classes and
many enter their final year of school with great
anticipation. Roads are jammed with cars and buses
moving families in the hectic schedules of activities that
will last until the warm days of summer return. Teachers
brace for the onslaught of children filling the classrooms
and the challenges of imparting knowledge to a different
wprld from days gone by.
The time when chewing gum and writing notes was a
major offense in school has been replaced with drugs.
sexual immorality, hatred and kids killing kids. Buildings
are surrounded with fence (some with barbed wire), metal
detectors, armed guards and security cameras to create a
safe environment for staff and students. The Bible is
banned from the classroom, prayer removed from every
part of school and homosexuality exalted by teachers and
students alike. Godless theologies till the pages of school
books and teaching the basics of education has been
replaced with futile tests of role memory work. The day
when the teacher was respected and the child warned has
now been replaced with threats to teachers and children
allowed free reign.
One of the most important books a child (and parent) can
have in the school environment today is a 'Maniml fr
siurvivilng school.' Ieaving children at school is like letting
them play in a mine field. Teachers and staff are faced with
insurmountable challenges that lest their abilities to teach.
-low can anyone survive in school in a world gone mad
with the self-centered philosophy of "/e :' There is only
one manual bor surviving school -- and anywhere else for


that matter: the Bible.
The word of God teaches man that the world does not
revolve around the "me-me-me" philosophy of life
(Philippians 2:1-5). Genesis 1:1 declares that man is not the
center of the universe and he never will be. Throughout the
writings of the Bible man experiments with his wisdom and
is repeatedly shown to fail (Jeremiah 10:23). Pursuing the
tleshly desires will only bring about death (Romans I).
Lack of respect for God will trickle down in society to lack
of respect for others (1 Peter 2:17). Misery comes about
when man tries to do things his way (Proverbs 2). When a
nation targets God, it is doomed (Psalm 9:17).
Preparing for school requires some very important lessons.
The most important book you can have at school is your
Bible. It may be banned from the school curriculum but it
cannot be banned from the person. Challenge your aIith as a
student or a teacher by taking the word of God with you and
spend time during the day reading its message. Prayer can
never be taken out of school. If you have your head
connected to your neck you still have a right to bow your
head in silent prayer. Remember Daniel and his three
friends did not let the government of Babylon stop them
from worshiping the Lord God and neither should you.
Live the example of taith by dressing modestly adorning
yourself with the chaste conduct of a person of God (I Peter
3:2-4). Young ladies need to put clothes on when they go to
school. Young men should be examples of purity in speech.
honesty and respect. Teachers and staff should emulate the
pattern of godliness in their behavior and example as a
guide for young people. let your light shine in school
(Matthew 5:16).

Politcal advertisement paid for and approved by Robert G. Rankin, Republican, for Superintendent of Schools


Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
Center was represented at the Na-
tional Pioneer Network Conference
by 15 of Ayers Partners. The Pio-
neer Network is an organization that
teaches the importance of treating
people with dignity and respect at
all ages. Providing care to our older
population can be done in a way that
is resident-directed and makes them
feel comfortable. Learning the new-
est techniques and strategies is the
key to a successful relationship with
our residents. This specialized type
of care is leading the way of culture
change in nursing homes. The centers
that adopt the concept are the leaders
in their industry by promoting inde-
pendence in abilities and spirit. Ayers
has been involved with this change
since 2006 and we continue to learn
the best way to take care of people.
We were able to send a large num-
ber of people due to the funds raised
through the "Mildred Bishop Scholar-
ship Fund" established in 2006. This
fund is designed to give all partners,
in any field, an opportunity to pro-
mote geriatric education and provide
an opportunity to learn new ways of
caring for residents. The scholarship
Fund was established by Marion Bish-
op and his daughter Marilyn Shaw
in memory of their wife and mother
Mildred Bishop. This scholarship
enabled many partners a chance to
go to this training that may not have
been able to attend. These partners
are now leaders that will continue to
promote positive change in our care
and living techniques. We are a com-
munity within a community and we
appreciate the support in making our
residents feel loved and special.

THANK YOU!
Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County:
Thank you for the support of the many friends, family, volunteers and most
especially you the voters. I decided to seek the office of Superintendent
because I believe there is no greater profession and no place one can
make a greater impact than by investing in the future of our children. Our
teachers and support staff impact the lives of so many by shaping the
hearts and minds of our children.
My desire is to lead Gilchrist County to new educational heights. We can
achieve this by seeking ways to enrich our current programs: vocational,
dual enrollment, advanced placement courses (AP), as well as other activi-
ties such as music and art so all students may be successful and develop
into well rounded and productive citizens. It is my desire to make a differ-
ence in our community. Once again,THANKYOU and with your continued
support, we can be UNITED FOR EXCELLENCE!

U.S. 19 in Dixie
County to be
Resurfaced
Beginning August 27
The resurfacing of U.S. 19 in Dixie
County, which is scheduled to begin
Monday, August 27. is the second
Florida Department of Transportation
(FDOT) project in Northeast Florida
to incorporate changes to the way a
project is designed, thus reducing
pre-construction costs and, on this
project, saving FDOT $200,000.
The 'SMART plan' concept will
be used on routine projects such
as the resurfacing of U.S. 19 from


State Road 349 in Old Town to the
Gilchrist County line. The goal of
this new concept is to reduce sur-
veying costs and simplify construc-
tion plans. On U.S. 19, an estimated
$75,000 was saved on surveying and
$125,000 was saved in plans produc-
tion. The plans, which are provided
to the FDOT's contractor in order to
construct the project, were reduced
from 92 sheets to 16 sheets.
This concept can be used for proj-
ects that already meet FDOT design
standards and roadways that only
need to be resurfaced or repaired
with minor reconstruction.
Crews are scheduled to begin
Monday (August 27) on the 3.4-mile
resurfacing project that will include
minor drainage and concrete work.


Sidewalks will be upgraded to in-
clude wheelchair accessible ramps
and drainage will be improved by
replacing the ends of culverts in
several locations. Tol help improve
safety, two sections of drainage pipe
will be extended under sidewalks in
Old Town and 200 feet of guardrail
will be replaced near the Suwannee
River bridge. The bridge joints will
also be replaced on the Suwannee
River bridge.
,Crews will remove and replace the
top two layers of asphalt. Paving is
expected to begin by the end of Sep-
tember.
Motorists can expect daytime lane
closures weekdays after 8:30 a.m. and
crews may work weekends. Some
driveways may be affected while


I am so blessed to have won the support of Gilchrist County's
Democratic voters. I thank you so much from the bottom of my
heart for your support and vote. This was only possible because
you believed in me. I will make a difference
you will be proud of.
I continue to need your support and vote in
the upcoming November 6 General Election. '

Thank you again for your prayers,
your support, and your vote!

writer among us. Her name is Miss

She is a 52 year old FULL of life

Rehabilitation Center. Diana has
been a writer all of her life, writing
everything from short stories, songs,
poetry and more. Miss Williams be-

desire to have these published. Upon
looking into this we found that it
was very costly. So I offered to sit
down with her and type them onto
her own website and share them with
the world. She was delighted. Each
afternoon we sat down and she re-
cited her words and compiled them.
Miss Williams has had a nickname

time to name her website, for her, it
was very easy to name it" Foxy "D"

THANK YOU!
To the citizens of Gilchrist County) thank you for your support
and encouragement during this campaign. I have truly enjoyed
every minute of it getting out meeting and talking to you and
building relationships along the wavy not only with the voters,
but also the other candidates. A big thank you to my family and
friends who stood beside me the whole way, I couldn't have done
this without you. My son had some words of wisdom for me after
the results "There is no dishoner in losing a race, there's only
dishonor in not entering a race because you are afraid to lose. "
I wish the other candidates all the luck, and again thank youfor
this experience.

For those of you that didn't cast your ballot for me,
I respectfully ask that you give my candidacy an-
other look and please consider me on Nov. 6th. We

Be A Child
Advocate


So many of us are blessed with
family, friends, home, safety, and se-
curity. A child who has been taken
away from their parents due to ne-
glect, abuse or abandonment often
does have these basics that help us
get through life. What would it be
like to be surrounded by a sea of
strangers making decisions we don't
understand, being separated from
siblings, being moved from home
to home and school to school. As a
Guardian ad Litem Volunteer, you
can be that child's life line, a constant
beacon shining in their lives.
In Gilchrist County, we still need
volunteers to advocate for about 40%
of the children who so desperately
need someone to stand up for their
rights.
If you are there for the child, pro-
viding valuable information and rec-
ommendations to the court and lift-
ing up that child's voice in court, that
.child is half as likely to languish in
foster care and that much more likely
to find a safe and permanent home.
Guardian Volunteers are ordinary
people doing extraordinary work.
The program offers free training, le-
gal and staff assistance. Volunteers
commit to at least one year and about
10 hours per month.
The next class starts September
1lth in Chiefland. To find out more,
call 352-493-6051 or go to www.gal.

Water restrictions
rescinded in some
areas within the
SRWMD
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) Govern-
ing Board voted today to amend the
District's water shortage order to
rescind water restrictions in Baker,
Dixie, Hamilton, Lafayette, Putnam,
Suwannee and Taylor counties
Water restrictions will remain in
effect until Sept. 30 for the following
counties: Alachua, Bradford, Colum-
bia, Gilchrist, Jefferson, Levy, Madi-
son and Union.
The Amend Order also extends the
water restrictions to all unincorporat-
ed areas of Alachua County that are
located in the St. Johns River Water
Management District (SJRWMD), in
accordance with a delegation agree-
ment between the two water manage-
ment districts and the Alachua Coun-
ty Board of County Commissioners.
"Although groundwater conditions
have rebounded in many areas of the
District following cumulative rainfall
over the last couple of months, some
areas are still facing low and ex-
tremely low conditions," said Megan
Wetherington, District senior profes-
sional engineer.
"The District is lifting water re-
strictions in areas that have made
significant improvements, but we
would like to remind the public that
year-round water conservation rules
apply to all counties within District
boundaries," said District Executive
Director Ann Shortelle.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
I have no regrets about running for sheriff of
Gilchrist County. I ran a low budget, no smear cam-
paign, and only a few people outside of my immediate
family for campaign donations. I did experience the
good and the ugly side of politics. The good side was
a self examination of how I treat people and the ugly
side was seeing people who you knew for years, and
you thought were your friends (or you had helped in
some form or fashion before running for office) now
wanting nothing to do with you, either in word or in
deed. However, I beleive there is a God, and that He is
in control, and He ultimately promotes or demotes. I
also believe America is in the trouble it is in today
because we as a country have put God last on our list,
even though our motto is still "In God We Trust."
So I leave you with two verses from the Bible (God's
Word): "9. That if thou wilt confess with thy mouth the
Lord Jesus and shalt believe in thine heart that God

Gilchrist County canvassing board
will conduct a manual audit of the

voting system. (Section 101.591,
F.S. immediately following the

certification of the election by the

county canvassing board) On
Thursday, August 23, 2012, at 8:30
a.m. in the Elections Office.


T-he Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Aug. 15, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. We had a nice sur-
prise when Betty Salisbury came
out for a visit. She was one of the
original ladies and brought a scrap-
book for us with plenty of pictures
(with names on the back) and news
articles. She also brought out a quilt
that she had finished except for the
binding around the edges. She visited
with old friends and looked around at
all the changes we had made.
The group settled in to work on
the watermelon quilt in the frame
and some worked on measuring our
donated fabric. The fabric had been
on shelves and lots of the material is
the shiny, slippery stuff that refuses
to stay in a neat pile. Now we're tak-


ing the time to measure all the fabric,
roll it into a piece that will fit on the
shelves and enjoy looking at each
piece wondering what could be done
with it.
Greg Stalvey and the boys were out
to work on the yard. We've learned
that yard work gets done first since
the rain probably isn't too far away.
The County is still on water restric-
tions so let the rain keep coming,
we'll just work around it. There is
always something that can be done
inside. Thanks, Lancaster.
Our hours are Tuesday thru Satur-
day from 10 a.m. -3 p.m. There is no
admission charge so we look forward
to your visit. Visitors are always
welcome and the rocking chairs need
a workout.

Durden gave a second to the motion
before the board voted in support of
the recommendation.
In other news, the commission
asked Gilchrist County Transportation
Supervisor Billy Cannon if the road
department had performed any
grading within the Town of Bell in
Sanders Oaks subdivision. Cannon
reported that he was told that until
this subdivision is brought up to the
guidelines of the Gilchrist County
subdivision ordinance involving
county roads, there should not be any
grading done by the Gilchrist County
Road Department. ,

only one point of ingress and egress
to the site. This site plan does not
demonstrate that adequate area for
parking exists.
Commissioner Harrison asked
the county planner if there are any
properties in Gilchrist Count suited
for this type of use. She responded
that there are none that would allow
this use without first going through
the SUP application process.
Commission Chairman Tommy
Langford then gave the public an
opportunity to voice their opinion
on the proposed application.
Patrice Boyce, representing Scott
Wiltie, a resident of a neighboring
residential subdivision, addressed
the commission to identify the issues
about the proposed application.
Langford said that the neighbors
opposing the application had
presented a petition for the record.
Ronnie Beach, a Gilchrist Cqunty
resident who lives less than one mile
from the proposed property addressed
the commission about his concerns.
"I'm against the proposed
application due to the noise and the
(BYOB) bring your own beer, that this
group allows the public to do. Who


will be responsible when someone
leaving this party driving, gets out on
the highway and causes an accident
and kills someone?" Beach asked.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
said she represents the citizens of
Gilchrist County who elected her
and of the 65 e-mails she received on
Sunday regarding the proposed music
park, only one was from a resident of
Gilchrist County.
"1 move to deny SUP 12-05
based on the recommendation from
the Gilchrist County planner,"
Commissioner Sharon Langford
said.
Commissioner Durden agreed and
gave a second in support of the motion.
Commissioner Durden added that he
didn't feel comfortable allowing an
organization to have people BYOB
to a festival in Gilchrist County.
"When you allow this type of
activity in the name of raising money
for the youth of Gilchrist County, it's
not the right message being presented
to the public and the youth," Durden
said. "It doesn't seem to be benefiting
the youth."
The commission denied the
application by a roll call vote of 5-0.


Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers News


At our last meeting on August 7th,
we accepted membership applica-

teers. We're hoping this will be a
trend and more residents will consid-
er joining our volunteer efforts. Prior


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took into consideration the
recommendation of the Gilchrist
County Judicial committee to hire
one full-time officer for the security
of the Gilchrist County Courthouse
between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 5
p.m. Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to approve of
the hiring of one full-time bailiff-
security officer for the Gilchrist
County Courthouse to secure the
Judicial portion of the county
governmental building at a salary
of $50,000. Commissioner Randy


I have made a career of working for you, the citizens of Gilchrist County, for over 28 years now.
Currently employed by the tax collector's office, I have always been dedicated to serving you with
prompt, efficient, courteous, and knowledge of any department of this office, as well as all the other
employees.
I am certified with the State of Florida Department of Revenue as a certified Florida collector
assistant. I also hold the title of tag & title specialist for our DHMV dept. Therefore, I feel that I am the
best qualified and only experienced candidate. A tax collector has a multitude of duties and
responsibilities. Of these, they need to be able to provide many public services, such as motor vehicle
and vessel registrations and titles, issue hunting and fishing licenses, collect real estate and tangible
personal property taxes, delinquent property taxes, and the distribution of these funds to the proper
taxing authorities. The possibility of having driver license services in our office is currently pending at
this time. Although the Florida Statutes states that by July 1, 2015, all tax collector's offices will have
these services, the department may create exceptions for tax collectors who cannot provide full driver
license services due to the small population in the county. The biggest problem right now is the funding
needed for the equipment necessary, along with needing the space, the hiring of additional employees,
and the much needed security. It takes money to be able to provide this type of service, and lots of it.
I do believe that one of the issues concerning this county is how to deal with growth. Certainly we
will grow as more and more people want to share our lifestyle. One of my first priorities as tax collector
will be to continue to contain cost and yet provide the friendly and personal service that you have come
to expect from this office. As the county continues to grow, we may need to expand our services to
include the driver's license services, somehow. If we do to help serve the citizens of our county, then
we will do so in the most cost efficient and cost effective means possible at that time. 1 have been asked
if we will expand our office hours. I cannot say, as at the present time, our hours are from 8:30 a.m. to
5:00 p.m., closing the window at 4:30 p.m. due to so many reports that have to be processed at the end
of each day. We must check and balance before going home.
The tax collector's office has had many changes over the last few years. Technology has improved
our operations immensely. This county is above all other small counties when. it comes to the
technology necessary to run and maintain the tax collector's office. The laws of the State of Florida
change constantly in all departments, not only on the local level, but also the many other branches of
the state. This is not going to be an easy task, but I am experienced, certified, and prepared for this
honorable challenge.
As I've stated, I am not a politician. I also believe that our office has no place for politics. This office
is run by Florida Statutes and rules. I treat everyone that I see with the same courtesy and respect. I also
promise that if elected, I will be a "hands on" working tax collector. I love meeting and speaking with
all my customers, and do my very best to help in every way possible. This job is to be a chief revenue
collector. I will do what is necessary to carry out these duties as the tax collector in compliance with
the laws, regulations, and ordinances for the next 4 years. I simply do not wish to retire! I'll be here as
long as the citizens want me as their tax collector.
I will be visiting and talking with as many of the residents as possible over the next few months. You
may also contact me at 352-463-7089 or e-mail me at bjmerrittcfca(ayahoo.com if you have questions.
I would appreciate your support for me on November 6th as your new tax collector.
Thank you very much.

grown from serving about 30 people a month to now serving as many as 3,000 people per month, organizes and
makes use of 30 volunteers, and has moved into its own building behind Trenton City Hall; and Whereas under
Mr. Weder's leadership, the food pantry has initiated a number of programs including the Mobile Food Pantry, the
Backpack Distribution Program, and lunches for children attending the Gilchrist County Public Library's summer
reading program and Whereas Mr. Weder will be stepping down as director of the Senior Citizens' Food Pantry, and
his leadership and hard work will be sorely missed by the residents of Gilchrist County and Whereas Mr. Weder
exemplifies the good character of Gilchrist County's residents. Now Therefore, the Gilchrist County Board of County
Commissioners expresses its deep and sincere appreciation for the hard work, dedication, and leadership shown by
