After a \ew remals and a, ouple of she Toves fdo be anyway:-It is really


phone conversations I have to agree
with Carrie, that Lori is sweet and
she can cook too, which of course
only makes me like her even better.
What is not to like about a Southern
girl who says and' I quote, "I've al-
ways liked to cook and to be in the
kitchen."
Lori has lived in Gilchrist County
since 1997, she moved here from
Texas where grew up in the small
town of Needville, just outside Hous-
ton. Lori said Needville, Texas is a
lot like Gilchrist County because it to
is an agricultural community and the
people there, like here, are kind and
friendly.
When Lori spoke of Needville she
said, "They are genuinely good peo-
ple there and it was a great place to
grow up."
After high school she attended
college in San Marco, Texas before
coming to our area.
When considering a food business
she thought of pralines first since
they have always been special to her
because the Mexican restaurants in
Texas always had pralines at the cash
register. She explained that it was a
tradition there in her home state to
pay your ticket and buy a praline
on your way out thedoor. She said,
"That little bit of sweet would just
finish off your meal."
She got her start in the kitchen be-
side her mother, Patty, who had a real
way with food. Lori said her mother
put wonderful meals on the table and
taught her many important lessons


important to her to spend quality time
with her three children, A.J., 12, Ja-
cob, 11 and Clare, 7. Her new home
business, Simply Pralines gives her
the opportunity to work some from
home to earn a little extra income.
Lori said that she felt it was impor-
tant for anyone running a small busi-
ness from home or, in her case, her
home kitchen to not let the business.
take away from family time.
Between working a half day at
Trenton Elementary School and a
half day at Bell Elementary School
and raising her children she stays
pretty busy but she still loves to be
in the kitchen cooking up something
special like a big batch of pralines for
her customers.
She truly believes food makes peo-
ple happy and Lori loves to deliver
her special pralines to people and see
the smiles on their faces. At this time
she is considering expanding her can-
dy line to include peppermint bark for
the holidays, which of course sounds
great to me.
Orders for Lori's wonderful from
scratch candy can be made by going
to her facebook page Simply Pralines
and hitting "Like" on her page. On
her facebook page you will find dis-
counts and promotions for her candy.
She can also be reached at simply-
pralines@rocketmail.com. If you are
a tad on the old fashioned side like
me you can just call her at 352-472-
2181 and she will return your call and
happily take your order. One order is
$15.00 and you get 12 pretty large

pralines, but check with her because
she plans to run sales and special ev-
ery few weeks.
I'm thinking those pralines would
make wonderful Christmas gifts or,
better yet. maybe I can order some
for Thanksgiving.
This week's recipe is a family fa-
vorite that I grew up eating and have
cooked for my family for years. Like
Lori's mother, Patty, I, too have spent
time in the kitchen making fried po-
tatoes. In fact they were known in our
home as Grandma Potatoes or Saw-
mill Potatoes. My mother grew up
at various sawmills in Levy County
and potatoes were a staple at the mill
commissary; the store that all the
mill workers shopped at. The com-
missary was owned by the owner of
the mill. So she too, grew up eating a
lot of potatoes. When my mother tells
you she was raised in the woods she
is not kidding.




2 tablespoons vegetable oil
6 to 8 medium potatoes
1 medium onion
Salt and pepper to taste
Peel and cut up the potatoes in
chunks about 1 inch by 6 inch thick.
Chop onion and set aside. Heat oil
in a heavy cast-iron frying pan. Add
potatoes and stir. Cover with lid
and cook over medium heat about
15 minutes, stirring a couple times.
Then add the onion and season to
taste with salt and pepper. Uncover
and stir and cook over medium high
heat for next 15 minutes stir more of-
ten about every 5 minutes. You may
need to add a little extra oil to keep
the potatoes from sticking. After the
potatoes have cooked another 15
minutes they should be tender. Turn
heat up a little higher and stand over
the pan and stir until you decide they
are brown enough. The browning of
the potatoes is where all the flavor
comes from. Just before taking them
up, add some more black pepper. We
like lots of pepper on our potatoes.

A life unfulfilled is a life unlived. The greatest desire of
man is to live with a purpose for his existence and finding
happiness. Life must have meaning to give a sense of
direction and set before the wanderer a promise of hope.
From' childhood the heart yearns for acceptance to be
somebody. The drive of success fuels emotions to reach
beyond the limits of expectation as the road of life
stretches miles beyond the horizon. Nations rise from the
ashes of lives spent building empires of power, wealth and
prestige. The world revolves around the fevered pace of
men racing through the highways and byways of pleasure
seeking fortunes that fail as a mist in the early morning.
Lost along these seemingly endless roads of life is the
tattered sign of reality that reads, "Dead End. "
A life unfulfilled is a life unlived. When life is measured
by the wisdom of man there can be no fulfillment. The
efforts expended along this stretch of highway can only be
characterized as a dead end. It has great promise but comes
to nothing. There is nothing beyond. A dead end means the
end is empty, without value and worthless. Legion is the
lives of those who seek to find happiness in pleasure,
power, wealth and wisdom yet the fulfillment they desire is
lost. At the end of the road there is nothing to hold on to
for the grave takes it all.
A life fulfilled is a life lived. The story is told of a man in
the early days of the automobile that was stopped along the
road trying to get his Model-T Ford running again. A
wealthy man came by asking what the problem was. Being
told the engine had quit the well-dressed gentleman went
to work on the motor and in short time had the engine


the other, but because we recognize
how fortunate Gilchrist County is to
have many qualified candidates, who
would do a wonderful job if elected.
I'm proud to say that Gilchrist
County does not have politically mo-
tivated problems like those that seem
to abound in neighboring counties.
At the end of the day, and long af-
ter the General Election, let's remem-
ber that it's not about Trenton and it's
not about Bell. And it's certainly not
about who wins a high school foot-
ball game on Friday night.
We're all neighbors.

I bleed red.
Not orange and black, and not pur-
ple and gold.. .just red.
As a human being and a Gilchrist
County native, I have to say that I'm
sick and tired of the constant com-
parison between Trenton and Bell.
It's the Hatfields and McCoys around
here and it needs to stop.
As I type this column, with the
full knowledge that I am taking my
life into my own hands by sharing
my opinion, a Bible verse comes to
mind:
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
- Mark 12:31
Almost on a weekly basis I hear
that the Gilchrist County Journal
favors one town over the other in its
coverage, which to me is laughable
because Trenton residents think the
newspaper covers more Bell news,
while Bell citizens are convinced the
Journal is partial to Trenton.
I learned many years ago that it's
impossible to make everyone happy,
yet I still try. Take for instance last
week's issue of the newspaper, where
on page 6 we featured photographs of
the new Trenton FFA officers for the
2012-13 school year. Flip a few more
pages and find the middle school,
junior varsity and varsity volleyball
teams from Bell.
Despite my best efforts, the edi-
tor got a call last Thursday afternoon
from a disgruntled man who said
the Journal needed to stop favoring
candidates in our "Get to know the
Candidates" section on page 3. Ap-
parently this man assumed based on
the length of answers the candidates
for sheriff and superintendent gave,
that we were showing favoritism. In
his infinite wisdom, this man pointed
out that Christie McElroy and Bobby
Schultz both used more words to an-
swer the questions I asked than their
opponents. Based strictly on the word
count, the man assumed we were ed-
iting the responses to show partiality
to Trenton candidates. Because the
caller refused to give his name (those
are my favorite customers), I am un-
able to call him back and point out
that Bobby Schultz graduated from
Bell High School. ,
As for the "Get to know the Candi-
dates" feature, I take full responsibil-
ity, since it was my idea. You see, I
think a newspaper has about as much
business endorsing a candidate for
public office as a Hollywood movie
star.
It's our job to provide the citizens
of/Gilchrist ,County. with complete,
unbiased information on each candi-
date, By .doing so, we hope that all
registered voters will go to the polls
and cast an educated vote on Election
Day. That's why I ask the candidates
the exact same questions and as for
the length of their responses, I asked
the candidates to be considerate of
our limited space and suggested 50 to
75 words per answer. It's true, more
than one candidate has gone over my
recommended word count, but I think
it would be a disservice to the public
if I cut down their answers, or, worse
still, completely omitted questions
because they were getting a little
wordy. Robert Rankin had a number
of obligations, and had to turn his re-
sponses in several days after I asked
for them, but I didn't leave his ques-'
tionnaire out, for the same reason I
didn't cut down Bobby Schultz or
Christie McElroy's answers; we're
trying to work with the candidates,
not because we're favoring one over

running. Asked how he knew how to fix the motor the
gentleman replied, "I am Henry Ford. I know how to fix it:
because I built it." Moses writes in Genesis 1:27 "So God'
created man in His own image; in the image of God He
created him; male and female He created them." Man is a
created being by the hand of God and the only happiness
and purpose to life man will ever find will come from the
hand of his creator.
A life fulfilled is a life lived. King Solomon tried to find
his purpose in life with wisdom, power, and wealth and
pleasure (Ecclesiastes 1-2). His conclusion was that life is a
dead end if you do not live it with God. The message from
Ecclesiastes is an examination of life from a man that was
blessed with wisdom beyond the imagination of any man
that has ever lived. Yet Solomon's life could not be fulfilled
any more than the lives of anyone else save through the
knowledge of his Creator. The whole of man is to "fear
God and keep His commandments" (Ecclesiastes 12:13).
In reality life is not a dead end because there is life beyond
the grave. Solomon reminds all men the fulfillment of life is
not found in this life but the life that is to come. "For God
will bring every work into judgment, including every
secret thing, whether good or evil" (Ecclesiastes 12:14).
A life unfulfilled or a life fulfilled? A life unlived or a life
lived? The choice you make will determine what view you
have of life. To most people life is a dead end because there
will be no happiness apart from the Creator (Matthew
7:13-14). For the few that find the narrow gate they will
find life fulfilled in a relationship with the One who gave
His only begotten Son and everlasting life (John 3:1-21).

THURSDAY, SEPTEMI.3ER 20, 2 2


Sharon Langford (D)


What made you decide to run for
public office?
As a life-long 5th generation
resident, taxpayer, and community
me nber, I have a vested interest in
GOchrist County. I will, as I have for
the past 8 years, represent you, be
available, and support our seniors,
youth, and the citizens of Gilchrist
County. I feel that I have always done
what is best for our county without
having an impact on the taxpayers'
wallet. I believe that Gilchrist Coun-
ty is a wonderful place to live, and I
intend to try to keep it that way.

Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
I have the experience and the
knowledge to help our board make the
right decisions for Gilchrist County.
I have an AA Degree from Santa Fe
College and a BA Degree from Saint
Leo University. If re-elected, I will
continue to be open-minded, honest,
and work cooperatively with the oth-
er board members. In addition, I will
continue to uphold the constitutional
rights of all the citizens and will con-
tinue to research issues as they come
up which allows me to make the best
decisions for all who reside in this
county.

If elected county commissioner,
what do you feel is the best direc-
tion for the county to go in for the
future of the area and its taxpay-
ers?
If re-elected, I plan on keeping our


ers spending tax revenue on proj-
ects that Gilchrist County does not
own, such as Otter Springs?
I am not in favor of spending
Gilchrist County tax revenue to im-
prove property that is not owned by
Gilchrist County. Over the past three
years, Gilchrist County has lost a to-
tal of approximately $20,000 involv-
ing the operation of Otter Springs.
The county needs to look at spending
this money in our own park at Hart
Springs which is located only a few
miles from Otter Springs.

September 20


What made you decide to run for
public office?
I believe in term limits. I also be-
lieve competition is healthy. I've nev-
er run for public office, but felt this
was the time in my life to do more
for my fellow residents of Gilchrist
County.
Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
I have over 20 years of manage-
ment/administrative experience.
Those years were successfully spent
dealing with individuals and groups
associated with higher education,
public employees and colleagues.
I was responsible for managing a
budget and employees. I am used to
treating people from all walks of life
with respect and fairness. I earned a
Master's of Science degree and value
education. I am able to think critical-
ly and weigh all aspects of questions
or problems.

If elected county commissioner,
what do you feel is the best direc-
tion for the county to go in for the
future of the area and its taxpay-
ers?
We all realize that the county is
growing and more demands on coun-
ty services will be a reality. I believe
we need to strongly support our pub-
lic safety departments. If we can't
feel safe in our homes and places of
business, we have lost some of our
freedom. We need to broaden our tax
base in order to better support our


rural way of life. I am only in favor Thank you to all those who come vital county services. I would like to

Dear Editor,
In three and a half years Obama
has outsourced more U.S. jobs and
technology than any other president
in U.S. history. Instead of using
nearly one trillion dollars of bor-
rowed stimulus tax dollars to put
Americans back to work building
and maintaining roads, bridges, and
other U.S. infrastructure, and to pro-
vide Americans "jobs that pay well
and can't be outsourced" Obama
sent most of the stimulus money and
American jobs overseas to dozens of
countries around the world to pro-
duce products Americans can make
better in America.
The remaining stimulus dol-
lars spent in America were given to
Obama's cronies, campaign contrib-
utors, and businesses in Democratic
Party stronghold states that used the
money for failed companies like
Solyndra and dozens of similar com-
panies that also went bankrupt.
Obama promised that he would
re-work NAFTA so that Americans
would not lose any more jobs to
Canada and Mexico, that lobbyists
would be banned from the White
House, and that his cabinet would be
chosen from outside Wall Street. Ob-
viously, each of these false promises
was made to get votes in 2008. The
younger generation, most members
of the Democratic Party, and some
independents bought into all these
lies because they wanted change.
The change they got was millions
of people who lost their jobs and now
have to settle for lower pay in jobs
they are overqualified for if they can
get one. Millions more have used up
all their unemployment benefits and
are struggling to survive month' to
month. Young people can't get jobs,
women are being laid off at unprec-
edented rates, and minority commu-
nities across America have a higher
unemployment rate than at any time
since World War II. Obama has de-
stroyed the American economy and
is spending the U.S. into bankruptcy,
which is Obama's ultimate goal as


part of his plan to transform America
into an Islamic socialist state under
Sharia law.
What most Americans do not know
about the Affordable Care Act (ACT
or Obamacare) is going to hurt them.
It is a regressive tax and regressive
taxes hurt people who earn more than
the upper limit for poverty and less
than $250,000. This act is a blatant
attack on the middle class. There are
provisions in it that will contribute to
people waiting longer for care and
not getting the care they need in a
timely fashion, if at all. Health in-
surance costs will skyrocket because
that is the only way insurance compa-
nies can survive if they have to cover
pre-existing conditions, remove the
lifetime spending cap per person, and
deal with new endless layers of fed-
eral bureaucracy.
Every year more than a trillion tax
dollars are stolen because of Medi-
care, Social Security, Income Tax,
and Food Stamp fraud, and govern-
ment corruption. The amount of fraud
that will accompany ACT will likely
exceed the sum of all the above.
Worse still, Obama knows very
little about American history, geog-
raphy, culture, business/economics
and the people who built this coun-
try. Why else would Obama say, "if
you've got a business-you didn't
build that, somebody else made that
happen."

I doubt if anyone has ever been
through a difficult time without ask-
ing or at least thinking: "How did
I get here?" Sometimes we realize
we had no control over the struggles
we are facing, and yet, other times
we have to face the reality that we
alone are responsible. Whatever the
case, we can conclude that our trials
are not without purpose.. .it is an op-
portunity to grow, learn, mature, and
prepare for what lies ahead. There-
fore, it is wise to determine, if pos-
sible, why we are experiencing such
a season.
At the end of Deuteronomy; chap-
ter one, Moses recounts the reason
behind Israel's forty-year stint in the
wilderness. In summary, spies were
chosen from each of the twelve tribes
to report on the best strategy for ac-
quiring the land God had promised.
Instead, ten of the twelve returned
terrified and spread the news that
it was an impossible task, and like
wildfire, fear spread to the point that
not going into the Promised Land
was the preferable choice. At this
point, God displayed His anger, and
after destroying the ten who spread
a bad report, pronounced the verdict:
Not one over the age of twenty would
enter the land, but would die in the
wilderness...all except Caleb and
Joshua who remained faithful. Those
under twenty years old would remain

By Angie Land
in the desert for forty years... one
year for each of the forty days the
spies explored the land. Therefore,
God told Moses to have the Israelites
turn around and head back into the
desert. (See Numbers 14:20-35)
Instead of accepting God's judg-
ment, what the Israelites do next is
something we need to pay close at-
tention to, because we have the same
tendency: Numbers 14:39-40 re-
cords: "When Moses reported this to
all the Israelites, they mourned bitter-
ly. Early the next morning they went
up toward the high hill country. "We
have sinned," they said. "We will go
up to the place the Lord promised."
I suppose in light of dying in the
desert or spending an extra forty
years wandering around, going into
the land God has promised doesn't
seem so scary all of the sudden. Does
this sound like a teenager who offers
to clean her room AFTER you take
the car keys... or the employee who
promises to show up on time AFTER
they are fired...or the spouse who
agrees to counseling, AFTER you
threaten to leave? The Israelites tried
it anyway and were "attacked and
beaten down." God was not fooled
by this gesture of remorse, because
He knew it was not true repentance.
I can't help but wonder what would
have happened at this point if the Is-
raelites had truly repented over their
lack of faith.
"Godly sorrow brings repentance
that leads to salvation and leaves no
regret, but worldly sorrow brings
death." (ICorinthians7:10) Worldly
sorrow is only sorry that it was caught
and now faces consequences. How-
ever, if those consequences can be
avoided, everything will go back like
before... no change will occur. Godly
sorrow involves remorse over caus-
ing pain to another, especially God.
Godly sorrow causes us to confess in
order to restore the relationship, and
makes us willing to face consequenc-
es in order to pay our debt..
Repentance is critical to our rela-
tionship with God and others, so let's
admit that fixing things our way just
creates a bigger mess, and practice
real repentance.. .because every heart
matters.
Blessings, Angie

stone to America and the last of the
family, a young brother and sister,
seek to escape the curse.:
But stalking the house, even in
modern times, is an ancient spirit
or sidhe, a thing that can never die,
which has taken on human form. Its
:name is Roderick, and he has no idea
'that he isn't a man of flesh and blood.
,Also, he's in love with the sister,
,whom he plans to marry!
Things go awry on the anniversary
:of the curse when Oona's descen-
'dant, a dealer in witchcraft, arrives at
Athe house and commands the sidhe to
:begin its evil.
Show dates for this week are Sep-
'tember 21st, 22nd at 8:00 p.m. and

New Guitar 4-H

Club is forming
in Gilchrist Co.
Submitted
For the past two years interested 4-
H Club members have had the chance
to learn to play guitar. This year a
new 4-H Club is forming and any
interested young person in Gilchrist
County can join the club and learn
basic guitar.
The 4-H Guitar Club has its first
meeting on Thursday, Sept. 27, from
3:45p.m. to 5 p.m. at the 4-H Club-
house in Trenton.
Youth who join.will learn how to
tune a guitar, basic chords, and some
picking with an emphasis on classic
country, bluegrass, and some classic
rock. It's free to join, and the club
is open to any young person in the
county ages 5-18 as long as they have
a guitar to bring.to the class and are
big enough or have strong enough
fingers to press and hold down the
strings.
In addition to learning basic guitar,
the members of this club will learn
some basic leadership skills, time
management, and teamwork. Stud-
ies suggest that. children whq play
an instrument often perform better
in school. Members of this club are
encouraged to perform a "Share the
Fun" act at the annual 4-H County
Events competition, as well as the
annual awards banquet. This should
be a fun, relaxed club where young
people can learn basic guitar in a
low-stress environment, have fun,
and make new friends.
Anyone interested in joining can
call 352-463-3174 to reserve their
spot in the club as space is limited.

visiting with each other. Several
brought in completed projects for us
to see. I'll be showing off the pic-

Greg and the boys were out during
the week. We've learned to make a
list of things to be done which may
or may not be completed. Some-
. thing seems to come up and plans get
changed. The boys are great about
putting up with us moving items from
one place to another and then putting
it back where we started off. Thanks.

Commissioner of
Agriculture
recognizes
Florida School
Breakfast Week

Submitted
School cafeterias across the state.
are celebrating Florida School Break-
fast Week September 17-21, 2012.
Throughout the week, students have
participated in activities that focus
on the importance of starting each
day with a nutritious breakfast as
well as physical activity and academ-
ic achievement. Studies have shown
that students who eat breakfast make
greater 'gains on standardized tests,
pay attention and behave better in
class, and are less frequently tardy,
absent or visiting the nurse's office.
Eating breakfast is also positively
linked with maintaining a healthy
weight and avoiding health problems
associated with obesity.
"The Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
provides more than 660,000 fresh,
healthy, low-cost, or free school
breakfast meals each day," said Com-
missioner Putnam. "School break-


fast offers a critical service to chil-
dren whose families struggle to make
ends meet and is a convenient option
for students who aren't hungry for
breakfast when they first wake up."
Many Florida schools are serving
breakfast in creative ways that meet
the diverse needs of their students.
Breakfast in the classroom allows
the students to head straight to class
where meals are delivered and served
in the classroom. Breakfast after first
period, also called nutrition break or
second chance breakfast, will allow
students to eat during a break in the
morning, usually between 9:00 a.m.
and 10:00 a.m. Grab n' Go are break-
fasts that are packaged in paper bags,
boxes, or trays. Students can pick up
their breakfast and head to class, the
cafeteria, or the courtyard. Breakfast
carts bring breakfast to students in
designated areas such as the court-
yard, gym, or near the bus loop.
Parents should contact their lo-
cal school or the main school food
service office to see what breakfast
service options are available to stu-
dents.

and nutrition in Florida schools,

Kids.com. For more information

"Tax Revenue is what funds our school
system. We all want the best possible
education that we can AFFORD for our
children. During these hard economic times
the simplest thing to do would be to raise
taxes however, we must remember it is the
taxpayers who "foot the bill". Being a fiscal


conservative, taxes are one Qf my
priorities. .Taxpayers I still have
forgotten about you!"

Kathy's All Things Preschool News


Submitted
On September 10th, the staff and
children of Kathy's All Things Pre-
school, in Bell, hosted a luncheon in
honor of Grandparents' Day, which
was celebrated September 9th.
Around 40 grandparents, parents,
and guests came to share lunch. One
grandparent traveled all the way from
Panama City to be with us.
We are also proud to announce that
Kathy's All Things has recently been
awarded NAEYC (National Associa-,


tion for the Education of Young Chil-
dren) Accreditation for the third time.
This accreditation is awarded for five
years with an annual accountability
process.
NAEYC accreditation requires ex-
tensive documentation of 10 differ-
ent standards including relationships,
curriculum, teaching, assessment of
child progress, health, teachers, fami-
lies, community relationships, physi-
cal environment, and leadership and
management.


JROTC Patriot Day

Ceremony marks 9/11


In the morning hours of September
11, 2001, four commercial aircraft
were hijacked by religious extrem-
ists. Two planes crashed into the dual
towers of the World Trade Center, an-
other destroyed part of the Pentagon
building and the last was retaken by
the passengers and purposely brought
down in a rural field to avoid more
carnage.
Over 3,000 lives were lost that
day.
To remember the tragic losses and
sacrifices of innocent lives, police
officers, firefighters, medical person-
nel and military members, the Bell
JROTC has for the past several years
conducted a Patriot Day Ceremony.
In this ceremony, Honor Guard
cadets, Cadet Captain Ru<-ell Manz
and Cadet Sergeant Major Colby Ed-
wards, guarded the-flag staff as uni-
, formed officers stood by in respect. A
separate detail of cadets, Cadet Cap-
tain Ryan Cumbie, Cadet Sergeant
Erik Walker and Cadet Private Silver
Leatherman, were dressed in Conti-
nental Army uniforms.
First Sergeant Jon Meinholz wel-,
corned dozens of spectators to the
ceremony.
Then Cadet Major Matthew Kre-
inbihl recited a poem to describe the
individual parts of our national flag.
A moment of reverent silence to hon-


or the fallen was conducted and the
Pledge of Allegience followed.
The ceremony was closed with a
prayer to our Lord and Savior, said
by Cadet Captain Kassidy Renick.
This ceremony is conducted in not
only respect for the deceased of 9-11
but also for the patriot blood that has
been spilt for the freedoms we so of-
ten take for granted.
The Bell JROTC Bulldog Battal-
ion will never forget those who have
given their lives so that we may live
in peace and liberty.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
Trenton Water Department Has Committed a Monitoring Violation of Florida Drinking
Water Rules
What happened?
Our Community public water system recently violated a drinking water rule. Although this is not
an emergency, as our customers, you have a right to know what happened, what you should do,
and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We did not sample for the required contaminants and were therefore in violation of monitoring
and reporting requirements. The table below indicates the contaminants which we failed to sample
and when we should have sampled for these contaminants. Because we did not take the required
samples, we did not know whether the contaminants were present in your drinking water, and we
are unable to tell you whether your health was at risk during that time.

What should I do?

Required Sampling Number of When All When Samples
Contaminant(a) Frequire Samp Saming ples Taken Samples Should Were or Will
Have Been Taken Be Taken

Contaminants (SOCs)

(a) please see the attached Drinking Water Contaminants list for all individual parameters in each
category.

Some people who drink water containing the above listed contaminants could become seriously ill.

Any customers who are concerned about their exposure to these contaminants can choose alternative

consecutive year that this Old Town

event, which is free and open to the
public. This festival typically draws
hundreds of attendees not just from
the Tri-County area, but from all over

group; the inspirational gospel group,
Homeward Bound; one of the area's
newer quartets playing a mix of clas-
sic and southern rock, the Steel Rodeo
Band; singer/songwriter, Houston
Keene; and host band, Dotti South
and the Slackers. There may also be
some special surprise guests that will
be making appearances. Live perfor-
mances are expected to commence at
about 9:30 a.m., and the event is ex-
pected to run until about 5:00 p.m.
As with the last several years, the
local U.S. Marine Corps League will
be grilling burgers and such, the Di-
xie County Historical Society will of-
fer bottled water and surprise treats,
and the Dixie County band will have
soft drinks and bagged snacks avail-
able. All proceeds will benefit each
group's local efforts.

Feed prices

shift focus to

pasture use

Submitted
Following the prolonged drought
in the Midwest and the sharply es-
calating costs of corn-based feeds.
livestock and horse producers on the
East Coast are being encouraged to
rely more heavily on existing pas-
tures and available forages for their
animals.
"If the price of feed corn in 2013
continues to go up as it has this sum-
mer, livestock and horse producers
may be hard-pressed to feed their an-
imals and still turn a profit," said Jim
Moore, vice president of the South-
ern States Feed Division.
Forage is the most important ele-
ment to any diet, whether livestock
or horses. A high quality pasture can
help producers control feed costs.
"Pastures that saw heavy grazing
this past year may require additional
attention, in terms of seed and fertil-
izer this fall and over the winter, to
be able to sustain increased demand
next spring," advised David Jessee,
an agronomist for Southern States.
"The East Coast can't produce all
of the forage that will be needed, and
we can't rely on hay from the Mid-
west to supplement it," he said.
Fall is the best time to plant, fertil-
ize. and lime a cool-season pasture.
The proper timing for establish-
ment is very important indeveloping
the proper root system for providing
the best forage for your livestock and
horses over the growing season.
It is also advisable to conduct a soil
test on pastures as a first step in deter-
mining a viable pasture management
plan.
If quality grasses and. hays are
scarce, producers are also encour-
aged to supplement livestock or hors-
es' diets with forage replacers such as
silage for cattle and chopped forages
or pelleted hay stretchers for horses.
For additional information on
pasture management and planning,
contact your local county extension
service. Gilchrist County Extension
Agent Marvin Weaver can be reached
at the extension office, by calling
463-3174.

Work was scheduled to begin Sep-
tember 13 by the Florida Department
of Transportation (FDOT) to improve
safety on a section of Newberry Road
(State Road 26) west of Newberry.
The project will increase the thick-
ness of the asphalt on the roadway
curves which will improve the abil-
ity of motorists driving through the
curves to maintain the posted speed
limit.
The westbound lanes on New-
berry Road between Newberry and
the Gilchrist County line will be af-
fected.
Lane closures will occur Monday
through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to
4:30 p.m.
The project is expected to take
about a month to complete barring
any unforeseen conditions such as
bad weather.
Hipp Construction Company of
Alachua has been hired by the EDOT
to complete the work for $170,000.
In 2011, an average of 9,600 vehi-
cles traveled this section of roadway
each day.
For additional information regard-
ing this project or other FDOT proj-
ects around Northeast Florida, visit

Bell FFA m


embers: What have you been up to?


By Debbie Jones
Bell Sr. and Middle FFA took 32
members and chaperones to the 84th
State FFA Convention in Orlando in
the end of June.
Jarrett Douglas competed for the
middle school in the state prepared
public speaking contest and placed
second. The Bell Middle School
chapter won several chapter awards
including 100 Percent Membership,
Premier Chapter, and Florida's Fin-
est. Only 10 percent of the chapters in
Florida receive Florida's Finest and
get to tweak their applications again
before they are sent on to nationals.
The middle school also received an
award for being third in the state for
the Land Judging CDE. The senior
FFA chapter received an award for
being third in the state for both Land
Judging CDE and Dairy Judging.
Bell Middle FFA members also
went to Florida Outdoor Advenutures
in August and Waylon Weeks re-
ceived an award for making the most
out of a conference experience.
Most recently, both chapters at-
tended two fun-filled days at the
Chapter President's Conference. The
presidents and vice presidents learned
more about their offices and chapter
responsibilities and now have plenty
of ideas to get their chapters ready for
a very busy new FFA year.

S ree wise 4
By Lauren Rudd r


No one should be forced to spend
their golden years working at sub-
sistence level positions in order to
survive. Therefore, I continually em-
phasize that investing, although not a
guarantee unto itself, is significant to
enjoying a successful retirement.
Moreover, investing is not rocket
science. Virtually everyone can do
it with minimal assistance. A casual
understanding of economic trends, a
little basic finance to analyze earn-
ings, and a dollop of common sense
will enable you to establish a port-
folio with a reasonable return. The
absolute size of your portfolio is not
nearly as important as your contribut-
ing to it on a regular basis.
Wait, you say, am I really advocat-
ing investing in today's stock market
given its nosebleed levels and con-
tinual talk of a decline going for-
ward? Absolutely I am! Understand
that short-term price trends on Wall
Street are merely an indication of the
market's emotional mood at a par-
ticular point in time, whereas the per-
formance of a company's shares will
mirror its financial performance.
Unfortunately, too many investors
are wedded to the rear view mirror
concept. That is wrong. While the
past plays a role in stock selection, it
is a company's projected performance
going forward that should drive your
investment decision.
Yes, it is natural to lose faith when
the market's judgmental outlook is
negative. Volatility and uncertainty
are frightening. Nonetheless, you
need to constantly remind yourself
that investing is not about how your
portfolio performed yesterday, or
how it will perform tomorrow. Rather
it is about your success over what you
have defined as an acceptable period
of time, be it months or years.
To that end, you will need to find
those corporations with winning re-
cords of accomplishment that sell
products you understand, which
brings us to stogy old Wal-Mart
(WMT). ,
A year ago when I wrote about the
company, the shares had recently
closed at $51.59 and my earnings es-
timate for fiscal 2012 was $4.55 per
share with a 12-month target price
on the stock of $60 for an annualized
capital gain of 15 percent. There was
also a 2.80 percent dividend yield. So
how did the company do over the en-
suing year?

were $4.49 per share, while the
shares recently closed at $74.07. Al-
though earnings were 6 cents lighter
than I had estimated, the share price
well exceeded my forecast, providing
a capital gain of 43.6 percent.
So how will Wal-Mart fare going
forward? Given the continuing eco-
nomic pressures on the paychecks of
Main Street, Wal-Mart's price leader-
ship continues to grow, as evidenced
by their most recent results.
For fiscal 2013's second quarter
ended July 31, Wal-Mart reported net
sales of $113.5 billion, or an increase
of 4.5 percent from the $108.6 posted
a year ago. Income from continuing
operations was $4.0 billion, up 5.7
percent from a year ago, while earn-
ings per share came in at $1.18, as
compared to $1.09 a year ago.
Wal-Mart chalked up free cash
flow of $6.1 billion for the six months
ended July 31, as compared to $4.0
billion a year ago.
Return on investment (ROI) for
the trailing 12 months ended July 31,
2012 was 18.1 percent, compared to
18.4 percent for the prior period. The
decline in ROI is attributable to high-
er levels of average working capital,
capital expenditures and the impact
,of acquisitions.
Management raised and narrowed
its full-year earnings guidance to
$4.83 to $4.93 per share.
The previous range had been $4.72
to $4.92. As stated previously, last
year's full-year EPS was $4.54.
The intrinsic value of the shares,
using a discounted earnings model
with an earnings growth rate of 9.52
percent applied to earnings of $16.4
billion and a discount rate of 15 per-
cent, yields a value of $77 per share.
The more conservative free cash flow
to the firm model yields an intrinsic
value of $100 per share.
I am lowering my earnings target
for 2013 a few cents to $4.95 per
share for fiscal 2013, with a $5.35
estimate for fiscal 2014, and a 12-
month share price target of $82 for
a capital .gain of 12 percent. There
is also an indicated dividend of 2.20
percent. Oh, one other minor point,
the company has raised dividends for
36 consecutive years.

Re: CRIME
As your next Sheriff, it will be my never ending goal to make Gilchrist County the safest
place to live, work, and raise your families. I have an abundance of experience in
removing criminals from the streets. In the last 4 years alone, I have made over 100
FELONY arrests. Under my leadership, the Gilchrist County Sheriffs office will be
dedicated to reducing the amount of burglaries and locking up the drug dealers. With
increased and advanced training and a renewed focus, we will make Gilchrist County
an uncomfortable place for criminals and let it be known that if you do the crime, we
will find you and you will do the time. Robert Roux: a sheriff who will be tough on crime
and even tougher on criminals.
ELECT A SHERIFF THAT WILL BE TOUGH ON CRIME,
EVEN TOUGHER ON CRIMINALS!
