County


Broadba

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
listened to North Florida Broadband
Chairman Tommy Langford,
NFBA General Manager Richelle
Sucava and NFBA attorney Jennifer
Springfield tell the Commission
that Gilchrist County had agreed
to support the middle mile service
company in February 2010 with in-
kind tower use in order to assist with
high-speed broadband service to the
underserved areas of North Florida.
Gilchrist County was one of fifteen
counties that first committed to
support the North Florida Broadband
Authority. Commissioner Tommy
Langford has been on board with the
agency representing Gilchrist County
from the inception of the North
Florida Broadband Authority. He told
his fellow County Commissioners
Monday afternoon that NFBA would
bring economic stimulus to North
Central Florida via the high-speed
Internet capabilities.
The Commission discussed and
listened to the public speak about how
the high-speed internet service was
needed in the rural county, but not
at the cost that the Gilchrist County
taxpayers should subsidize the
middle mile provider for $2,200 per


denies North Florida


md tower in-kind service


month for the remaining 36 months
of the proposed live year lease.
Commissioner Randy Durden made
a motion to deny the use of the in-
kind service of the Gilchrist County
microwave tower for the proposed
$2,200 per month fee and have
NFBA pay Gilchrist County $1,250
per month and allow the middle mile
provider to have the $81,000 in-kind
equipment for the $9,200,000 Federal
match to meet the guidelines of their
2010 grant. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas agreed with the motion
when he gave a second to the motion.
Tommy Langford, Gilchrist County
Commission Chairman, called for a
roll call vote as the five-member board
voted 3-2 in support of the motion.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
voted No and explained he didn't
understand the NFBA proposal and
Chairman Tommy Langford voted in
conflict against the motion.
Gilchrist County was one of over
21 counties that were reported to
have signed on to the initial grant
proposal when the organization
made application to receive a $30
million grant from the first round of
the Federal Government stimulus
funding.
Gilchrist County Attorney John


McPherson told the Commission that
he had reviewed the 24 page lease
document that was being proposed
by the NFBA Chairman, General
Manager and Attorney. He explained
that he had no problem with the lease
except for the paragraph where the
NFBA was proposing that when
Gilchrist County sign the lease
document, it would be back dated to
help NFBA have an increased in-kind
match to the longer period of time the
lease was approved for.
Commissioner Sharon Akins
Langford asked the Gilchrist County
attorney about the limited liability
that Gilchrist County might have if
NFBA fell short of their $9.2 million
Federal match they are committed to
involving the Federal stimulus grant
funding. In Section 5.04 the lease
explains that no member shall in any
manner be obligated to pay any debts,
obligations or liabilities arising as a
result of any actions of the authority.
Members of the public attending
the meeting expressed their concern
that the Gilchrist County taxpayers
were subsidizing the NFBA. They felt
that since the NFBA received a $30
million stimulus, Gilchrist County
taxpayers should not be providing an
additional in-kind use of their tower


and then allowing the NFBA to sell
space on the microwave tower for the
benefit of the authority.
Commissioner Randy Durden
asked the NFBA General Manager if
the authority was paying a secretary
an $80,000 salary. The General
Manager explained that she didn't
know the salary scale of all of the
employees. The eight employees
that work for NFBA range in salary
from $40K up to $150K. Members
of the public that provided questions
for the Commission to request
involving the NFBA wanted to know
how Commission Chairman Tommy
Langford could be involved in the
discussion and vote, when he is also
the Chairman of the NFBA. Gilchrist
County attorney John McPherson
explained that Commissioner Tommy
Langford does not have a conflict of
interest involving the NFBA since
he is not being compensated for his
position as chairman of the board.
The NFBA can still provide high-
speed Internet service to customers in
Gilchrist County. The NFBA contract
with the Federal government will be
complete as of February 1, 2013. At
that time it was reported that they
could connect service to customers in
North Central Florida.

Bell High School's 2012
Homecoming, "Remember the
Bulldogs!", was once again a huge
success. Students, faculty, and the
community enjoyed the festivities
and excitement that Homecoming
brings to Bell High School every
year. Students and teachers dressed
up in their favorite musical attire on
"Remember the Music" Monday,
remembered those who survived
cancer and those in the United
States military on "Remember the
Fighters" Tuesday and "Remember
the Military" Wednesday, dressed up
in different decades in "Throwback

in their Purple and Gold colors on
Friday's "Remember Your Bulldog
Spirit" Day.

Roberts Auditorium was once again
filled to capacity as the community
helped students and faculty honor the
Bell Bulldogs' Football Team at the
annual "Bulldog Growl". Bell High
School Social Studies teacher and
host of the Growl, Brad Surrency,
Middle School Language Arts
teacher Jason Johnson, and Resource
Teacher Thomas Cannon, hilariously
got the Growl going as the famous
band Guns N'Roses. The Bell Purple
Powerhouse Marching Band rocked
the house and got everybody dancing
in their seats with their exciting
musical numbers and awesome drum
solos. While the BHS Varsity and
Junior Varsity Cheerleaders got the
crowd's spirits moving with their very
well choreographed cheers and dance
routines, the Bell Junior and Senior
classes, the BHS Volleyball teams,
and the Bell JROTC were the stars of
the show with their overly hilarious
skits. The Junior class showed off
their dancing skills while portraying
the different decades of the 20th and
21st Century in their "Evolution of
Dance" skit. The Senior class skit
had the crowd laughing with their
"Thursday Night Live" skit, showing
awesome renditions of classic
"Saturday Night Live" skits from the
famous Will Farrell "Cowbell" skit
to the over the top MAD TV's "Bon
Qui Qui". The Bell Lady Bulldogs
Volleyball team poked fun at the
Bulldog Football players and coaches
in their "Locker Room Stories" skit
and the Bell JROTC showed the
different eras of Bell High School
and made our own principal Rick
Reed the star. The winners of the skit
contest were: 3rd Place, JROTC, 2nd
Place, the Senior Class, and 1st Place
went to the Lady Bulldogs Volleyball
Team. One,of the highlights of the
evening was the crowning of the Bell
Middle School Prince and Princess,
Clay Hutto and Jaycee Thomas by
last year's Princess Shelbie Geiger
and last year's Prince, Brandon
Thomas. An emotional slide show
presentation of the Bulldog Football
team rounded out what was an
extraordinary entertaining evening.
The 2012 Homecoming Parade
on Friday was definitely one to be
remembered as the parade showed
off some great homecoming floats.
The Parade Judges had a very
difficult decision choosing between
all the creative floats, but in the end,
the BHS Health Academy won with
their "Remember the 1950s" Float,

Gilchrist County


Farm Bureau holds


annual meeting


By Cindy Jo Ayers
A large crowd of Gilchrist County
Farm Bureau members gathered at
the Trenton Elementary School for
the Annual Farm Bureau Meeting on
Thursday evening, Sept. 27.
The county Farm Bureau President
Roy Wilson presided over the event.
Wilson reported that the local Farm
Bureau was alive and well. He
introduced the two local agents Larry
Merritt and Ben Colson as well as all
the local elected officials and those
hoping to be elected.
He brought to everyone's attention
that the Farm Bureau gives out
three local scholarships for $1,000
for high school seniors going into
an agricultural field of study. He
reported that one is given each year
in Bell, Trenton and Dixie County.
Wilson said in the last few years they
have not had many apply and hopes
this year there will be more students
interested in going into agriculture.
Sierrah Cartwright of Bell High
School was last year's district Farm
Bureau speech contest winner.
"I want to go somewhere with my
speaking ability," Sierrah told those
gathered.


She also thanked Farm Bureau for
giving her the opportunity to improve
her speaking skills at their speaking
competition.
Keith Perry, who is running in our
district for State Representative, was
given a few minutes to speak and
introduce himself to the everyone.
Perry said he was a business man,
owning a roofing company inAlachua
County for years, while his opponent
is an attorney. Perry has been a State
Representative in another district but
when the lines were re-drawn he will
now represent this area.
The event was centered around
a barbecue dinner and many door
prizes of Farm Bureau products were
given away.

Submitted
My name is Brett Crawford; I cur-
rently serve on the Gilchrist County
Soil and Water Board representing
District 5. I serve as the Vice Chair-
man. I was originally appointed to
this position in 2009 by then Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist. I am seeking re-
election to this position.
The Gilchrist Soil and Water Dis-
trict has been actively promoting soil
and water conservation since 1946, it
was originally formed to look at new
practices that would limit and/or re-
duce impacts to our Natural Resourc-
es. (Water, Land and Forests)
The goal of the Gilchrist Soil and
Water Conservation District has al-
ways been to solve local natural re-
source problems with quality tech-
nical services and to educate/serve
residents of Gilchrist County to
gain a better understanding of local
environmental concerns providing
information on what can be done to
protect and conserve the County's
limited natural resources.
Currently the board's efforts con-
tinue with this same original mission;
we just look at it with new/different
technologies and programs:
* GPS mapping of fields, used
for planting, watering and har-
vesting
* Soil Probes helping to conduct
research projects that can mea-
sure moisture at different loca-
tions within one field.
* CARES Program Recognition
and promotion of those individu-
als and farms who ate actively
working to protect and conserve
our natural resources.
* Education promote youth soil
judging events, along with pub-
lic speaking events for students
in middle and high school.
The conservation district works


ett Craford
Brett Crawford


closely with Water Management and
other Regulatory agencies to evalu-
ate best management practices and
how these practices can sustain agri-
culture for years to come in Gilchrist
County.
The position that I am seeking is
a non-paid position. I, along with the
other 4 members, volunteer hours to
the mission of working for agricul-
ture and natural resources in Gilchrist
County because we enjoy doing it.
I am a 2008 graduate of Trenton
High School. I attended Lake City
Community College and am a fifth
generation agriculturalist in my fami-
ly. I currently work for FAS Systems,
we specialize in GPS technologies:
this summer my work has largely
involved irrigation. 1 am closely in-
volved with the efforts of the soil and
water district as we harvest the late
summer crops of hay and peanuts.
I believe, even though I am young.
I possess the qualities and desires
needed to serve Gilchrist County in
this position
1 would appreciate your vote and
support in the November election.

Last week 1 wrote about some
highlights of our trip to southern Ten-
nessee and promised you that 1 would
tell of our dinning adventures in this
week's column.
When we left our beloved Gil-
christ County, we did not set out to
eat at such neat places. After all the
trip was planned around a three day
quilting class in Townsend, Tenessee,
but you know sometimes good things
just happen.
Our first important stop was at a
quilting store just south of Atlanta.
The Scarlet Thread is a wonderful
store with lots to offer quilters. While
there Donna Hayes, Chris Schreiber
and I asked the all important ques-
tion, "Where should we eat?" Lo
and behold one of the ladies in the
store directed us to downtown Mc-
Donough which has a lovely square
courtyard in the center of town. Like
many Georgia courthouse squares
it was landscaped beautifully with
wonderful flower beds and a marble
Confederate monument.
We found the recommended res-
taurant, The Gritz. which claimed to
offer "freshly made, original, simply
Southern cooking."
They had wonderful sides, which
included really good sweet potato
souffle, dressing, great chicken and
dumplings, greens, butter peas and
about 12 other items including maca-
roni and cheese. Get this, you could
pick five sides for $6.95. Needless
to say the food was really good and
it was almost like sitting down at
grandma's table.
As we were scanning the menu,
Donna pointed out that they had fried
pickles. Our waitress was a sweet-
heart and she brought us a dish of
fried pickles to try. Well, to make
a long story short, they were won-
derful. The dill pickle slices were
mealed, deep fried and served with
ranch dressing.
While there, Chris mentioned that
her son and his wife try to eat at all
home-owned restaurants, avoiding
chain restaurants whenever possible.
Although it was not our intention at
the beginning of our trip it seems we
found home-owned restaurants for
almost all our meals. What fun.
Next we traveled to Townsend and
found the neatest new restaurant that
just opened a few weeks before we
arrived in town called Firefly Cafe.
To be honest it looked like an ordi-
nary little restaurant in a small strip
of stores next to the IGA Supermar-
ket. However, what'we found inside
was not ordinary at all. They had a
wonderful french toast that was to die
for. Even the bacon, egg and cheese
sandwich was exceptional. The wait-
ress was, well let's see, just a hoot.
She was so funny, by the end of our
four day stay we were walking in-
side visiting with all the regulars like
we were at home. In fact, homey is
a good word to describe the place.
The restaurant's special dessert was
Firefly Pie which was a miniature
pie made of a baked custard contain-
ing pineapple and coconut. It was so
good! In fact everything was so good,
1 would go back there in a minute.
One of the most colorful gentle-
men that we met on our trio had


breakfast at The Firefly every morn-
ing. He was a native and wore over-
alls with this huge necklace that hung
half way down his bib. The necklace
was made of spent rifle cartridges,
two pocket knife blades and numer-
ous bear claws. He was a little on
the round side and had a huge white
beard and was as friendly and jolly as
Santa. He was a wood carver and was
spending his week at the National
Park Service's Welcome Center dem-
onstrating carving.
It turned out the Firefly even served
fried dill pickles and their's were
breaded in cracker meal and served
with ranch dressing. Our daughter
tells me that fried pickles are a fair
food and she was surprised that 1 had
not eaten them before. Well, what can
1 say, 1 don't get out much.
While staying in Townsend one
day we rode into Maryville and vis-
ited a yarn store. While in town, we
found an old gas station that had been
turned into an outdoor barbecue res-
taurant. The owners had wooden pic-
nic tables sitting under the awning
where the gas pumps used to be and
they were handing out barbecue from
the tiny building where the gas atten-
dant once took money. It was all of
about six foot by ten or twelve feet
long. But the smoke rolling from the
big black outdoor cookers did not lie,
because the cue was good. This place
was called Fullservice BBQ.
Lastly, but certainly not least, we
traveled to the tiny historic down-
town of Greenback, Tennessee for
supper one night. Someone suggested
we visit the Drugstore Diner and try
their honey bun dessert. As it turns
out we did try the honey bun. which
came hot off the griddle. It had been
toasted in a little butter and topped
off with a scoop of vanilla ice cream
and then drizzled with chocolate syr-
up. Something happened to the store
bought honey bun during the heating
process on the griddle, it sort of crys-
tallized the sugar coating which gave
it a really good crunchy texture on the
outside while the dough on the inside
stayed soft and gooey. As if that des-
sert was not enough, we just had to
try their banana pudding which was
served in a pint canning jar. Needless
to say, both were wonderful.
Funny thing about our trip, after
we came home I have noticed that
my jeans are harder to button, won-
der why'? We sewed, we talked, we
laughed and we ate all the way there
and all the way back. I am glad to re-
port a good time was had by all.
Thank goodness it is October, I can
finally start eating on the pumpkins
that are lined up on our back porch.
Somehow it just seems wrong to
eat pumpkins in September. Now
that fall has officially arrived, those
pumpkins can just get ready because
they are headed to the table.
This week's recipe is simple to
make, and after chilling, it is cool and
refreshing. I like a make ahead recipe
and this one should be made the day
before.

cookies)

top of maple whipped cream.


Florida is the #1 state
for political corruption
Dear Editor:
I am writing to you today because
of your Letters to the Editor column,
or I should say "Letter to the Editor"
because in your newspaper dated
Thursday, Sept. 20, 2012 there was
only one letter. This one letter writ-
ten by Matt Coleman which was a
personal rant full of unsubstantiated
andjust plain false statements i.e., the
Affordable Care Act. Are you aware,
Mr. Ayers, that the United States is
the only wealthy, industrialized na-
tion that does not have a universal
health care system (according to the
Institute of Medicine of the National
Academy of Sciences)'?
Do you think it acceptable for peo-
ple who have worked hard all of their
lives only to lose everything because
of a catastrophic illness'?
Do you think it ok for people who
work hard now but cannot choose
between buying groceries or health
insurance for their children?
Do you think it fine if someone on
Medicaid receives substandard/inad-
equate care resulting in unnecessary/


premature death'?
1 know people in every instance
above, do you? I do believe you may
and yet...you do not care. Why? To
protect your wealth? Because of
your religious views? I would really
like to know.
Florida is #1 in the nation for polit-
ical corruption. The corrupting influ-
ence of money in politics in the defin-
ing issue of our time and with Florida
being THE top state for millionaires,
I would only hope for its citizens that
they have an unbiased news feed that
gives both sides of an issue and let
them decide for themselves but your
newspaper does not do that. Other
countries also release only what they
want the public to see...China...Rus-
sia...ring a bell?
Mr. Ayers, II, please keep in mind,
"Democracy becomes a government
of bullies tempered by editors."

Sincerely,
Kathryn Tulk

Trick or treat in the City of Trenton
will be Tuesday, Oct. 30, 2012.


Road Department crew
deserves praise

Dear Editor,
During the times of loss and sor-
row, even the smallest deed of kind-
ness are huge and greatly appreciated
by the bereaved.
At the death of my husband, Wayne,
Billy Cannon and his road crew saw
to it that the road to our house was
graded.
Last week, at the death of Tiffany
Slaughter they did the same thing to
the Slaughter home. Due to the rain,
the deed was repeated, keeping the
road in good condition.
This type of concern and care for
the residents of Gilchrist County, de-
serves more recognition and honor
than I can give. Yet, I wanted to let
everyone know how much Billy and
the men on the road crew are appreci-
ated. My heartfelt "Thanks and God
bless you to each man that was a part
of this kindness. Your deeds are more
valued than you know."
Gratefully,
Imogene P. McLeod

*Get to know the Candidates 4
for Gilhirist CoutCo ( i,,,,,,ssioner, District 4 i


What made you decide to run for
public office?
My love for this county has influ
enced miy running for county com-
missioner. 1 have been listening and
watching to what is happening in
government. Federal, state and lo-
cal and 1 feel 1 could use some of my
experience and knowledge to help all
the people of our county.

Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
1 love interacting with people. I
have 40yrs of business experience,
great organizational skills and I enjoy
the diversity of working with people
of social status and education. If 1
don't know or understand something
I will research it, so I will make the
right decision.

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?
To move ahead into the future.
Make sure we maintain our excel-
lent school system. Keep our taxes
as low as possible. My greatest gift
to this county will be listening to all
the people of the county for issues
and concerns that arise. I will look
at all aspects of the issue, taking
into consideration how it will effect
the residents and strive to make the
best decision for the county and the
residences. I also want to be a good
steward of our tax dollars and make
good fiscal decisions.

As a county commissioner, what
will be your top three priorities?
1. Strive to bring new clean technol-
ogy jobs and business to the county
while keeping our rural atmosphere,
so our revenues will increase.
2. Have the best possible Law
Enforcement, Fire Departments and
Emergency Services.
3. To maintain an open door policy


Marion Poitevint


for all residents to feel comfortable
about coming to the commissions
with their problems and questions for
resolution.

As a Gilchrist County taxpayer and
potential or current county com-
missioner, how do you feel about
the Board of County Commission-
ers spending tax revenue on proj-
ects that Gilchrist County does not
own, such as Otter Springs?
I am not in favor of spending
taxpayer dollars on something that
doesn't belong to the county. If they
pay us for managing and the property
and pay for improvements then ok.
If they don't want to do that then they
can deed the property to the County.

What made you decide to run for
public office?
MIy family has a long history and
heartfelt interest in Gilchrist Coun-
ty. We live here, conduct business
here, we send our children to school
here, we pay taxes here, and enjoy
the many outdoor activities that are
available in our county. I previously
served as a County Commissioner for
Gilchrist County from 1998 to 2002.
I desire again to serve as one of your
County Commissioners to help shape
and guide the direction of Gilchrist
County in the future.

Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
1 feel that my prior experience on
the Commission, from 1998 to 2002,
along with my business experience
as Operational Vice President of L.
R. Thomas, Inc., and Diamond 99,
Inc., in budgeting, personnel man-
agement, and business decision mak-
ing has given me the knowledge and
ability to provide the highest degree
of management to'Gilchrist County.
I was educated in the Gilchrist Coun-
ty School System, graduating from
Bell High School in 1984. 1 went
on to receive an Associate of Arts
(AA) degree, in 1986 from Lake City
Community College, and a Bachelor
of Science (BS) degree, in 1988 from
the University of Florida. I taught
school in the Suwannee County
School System from 1988 to 2004.
1 have and will always research any
and all issues that come before the
board so that I will be able to make a
fully informed decision that will ben-
efit the citizens of Gilchrist 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?
People live in, and move to,
Gilchrist County for its rural nature,
quality schools, access to health
care and the overall quality of life.
If elected I would work to keep
Gilchrist County a place where we
can all be proud to live, and that has
the infrastructure in place to make it
a safe and healthy community. Ag-
riculture is a big part of our history,
but growth is essential to our future. 1
will work hard to ensure that our nat-
ural resources are protected, and that
our taxes are kept as low as possible
while providing the services needed
to all of our citizens.

As a county commissioner, what
will be your top three priorities?
1 think the county should continue
to work hard to keep taxes as low
as possible, and provide the quality
services needed by our citizens. We
must continuously look for ways to
more efficiently and economically
provide those necessary services, and
maintain our infrastructure. We must


ChandlerAsh, Joshua Akin and Helen
Rogers learned about healthy eating
and what fast food restaurants have
in their food and how much sugar is
in soda. Next up for the youth, is to
go out in the county and teach others
what they were taught.


Mike and Pat Carey and their family would like to thank everyone who
prayed for us recently when Mike had brain surgery.
A special thanks to Pastor Danny Allen; we are sure the outcome would not
have been as good without God's help.


VOTE RODNEY


BROWN

FOR

COUNTY

COMMISSIONER,
DISTRICT 3 ON NOVEMBER 6
To the Voters of Gilchrist County I would like to
THANK YOU for your consideration on November 6.
My wife and I have been life-long members of this
community. Our two sons and five grandchildren have all
attended or still attend Gilchrist County Schools. I retired
from the University of Florida after 30 years. Prior to that,
I served two years in the U.S. Army.
I believe in HONESTY, FAIRNESS and COMMON
SENSE. Issues that I will have to vote on as commissioner,
will be voted on in the best interest of Gilchrist County
residents. I will not be just another vote if it is not for the
good of the taxpayer.
As I stated before, I am retired so I have the time required
to do the job of commissioner correctly. I have no personal
agenda and no conflicting business interests.
I will be available and willing to help anyone. If you need
my help call (352) 354-5132 or (352) 463-0472.
THANK YOU!

also look for ways to attract clean in-
dustry and good paying jobs to our
county to insure that our children can
continue to live and raise their chil-
dren in Gilchrist County, without ex-,
cessive travel time.

As a Gilchrist County taxpayer and
potential or current county com-
missioner, how do you feel about
the Board of County Commission-
ers spending tax revenue on proj-
ects that Gilchrist County does not
own, such as Otter Springs>
I am a taxpayer in Gilchrist Coun-
ty, and as a taxpayer I want to see
my tax dollars spent efficiently and
wisely. As a commissioner I would
strive to see that our different depart-
ments are run in the most economical
manner possible. I would look to the
department heads, and demand that
they be diligent in insuring responsi-
ble spending of our tax dollars. Otter
Springs is one of Gilchrist County's
natural resources. I believe that the
revenue data, along with the agree-
ment between the Water Manage-
ment District and Gilchrist County
needs to be reviewed by the board.

on Highway 313.


Speaker: Everritt Heaton,

from Trenton, FL


Sunday 9/30/12,


10 am Bible Classes,


What are the qualifications
to be on the school board?
By law all you need to be is a taxpaying citizen and
a registered voter. If you Coogle "qualifications for a
school board member" you will find that some of the
abilities you need are commitment, effective
communicator, consensus builder, community
participant, decision maker, information processor,
leader, common sense, and being a team player. These
are not qualifications but, they are abilities that are
good to have to be an effective school board member.
My point is that I don't feel you need a degree from
Harvard to be an effective school board member. The
school board is suppose to be made up of a diverse
group of citizens. The school board employs experts
over each area that makes up the school system,
whether it is academics, transportation, finance, food
services, custodial, etc... If you have experts overseeing
experts what you get is micromanagement. I believe I
possess all of these abilities, through my current
profession and my military career I have used every
one of these to perform my duties. If elected I will be
sent to the same class that every school board member
must attend and I will also become a certified school
board member. I firmly believe that the only way to get
experience as a school board member is to be elected to
the school board. When you choose who will represent
you in district 2 please remember, I do have the
qualities which I believe are needed to be an effective
school board member. If elected to the school board I
will represent all of Gilchrist County and will do so to
the best of my ability. I humbly ask for your vote and
support on Nov. 6th.

Suwannee River Partnership discusses

programs to assist farmers


Submitted
The Suwannee River Partnership
(SRP) held a quarterly meeting re-
cently to update its partners of up-
coming projects for the next program
year, which will assist farmers within
the Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District (SRWMD) in con-
serving water and protecting water
quality. The group also decided that
SRWMD Executive Director Ann
Shortelle will serve as the new SRP
Chair.
Four key programs budgeted for
the next program year follow:
Mobile Irrigation Lab: $165,000
will be designated to identify the
need for water efficiency of existing
center pivot irrigation systems. The
funds will pay for about 180 systems
to be evaluated and recommenda-
tions made to reduce water use on
these systems. To date, nearly 8 bil-
lion gallons of water have been saved
through the program.
Irrigation Retrofit Program:
$100,000 in cost-share funds will be
used to help improve water efficien-
cy of about 20 existing center pivot
systems. Funds will pay for various
tasks, such as converting systems


from high pressure to low pressure,
retrofitting systems with more effi-
cient spray nozzles, repairing leaks,
and installing endgun shutoffs. The
program saved I billion gallons of
water last year.
BMPs Tools Cost-Share Program:
$100,000 in cost-share funds will be
available to about 10 farmers to im-
plement Best Management Practices
(BMPs). The funds will pay for new
technologies, such as global position-
ing systems and more efficient fertil-
izer application equipment to help
improve water quality. Through the
use of BMP tools, 50 pounds of ni-
trogen has been saved per acre.
Conservation Technical Assistance:
$300,000 is designated to update
poultry conservation plans on about
50 poultry farms. The funds will help
improve litter handling practices on
poultry operations to help improve
water quality. Conservation plans
typically reduce nutrient loading up
to 35 percent.
Funding for the programs in the
amount of $1.15 million will be pro-
vided by the SRWMD, the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection (DEP), the Florida Depart-


ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services (FDACS), and the U.S.
Department of Agriculture Natu-
ral Resources Conservation Service
(NRCS).
"The SRP would like to thank all
our partners for providing funding
and/or support for these programs,
said SRP Coordinator Hugh Thomas.
"Their funding and input are vital to
the success of our organization."

Free Evening of

The Dixie County Historical Soci-
ety will be hosting another evening of

sic for your enjoyment on Saturday,
Oct. 6, 2012, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.,

Character Council's

Personality of the Month


Submitted
The character quality of' attentive-
ness is foundational to many other
qualities. A person cannot be obedi-
ent until he learns how to be atten-
tive to authorities. A person cannot
be responsible and orderly unless
she gives attention to the condition
of her work area. A person cannot be
compassionate until he learns how to
listen attentively to others. A person
cannot be diligent if she is not fully
attentive to the task at hand. Learning
attentiveness is a critical foundation
for successful character development
and success in life!
Attentiveness, the character qual-
ity being examined this month, is
defined in the Merriam-Webster's
Collegiate Dictionary as "the state of
being mindful or observant to what
you are doing; being heedful to the
comfort of others; offering attention
to."
The key concepts of attentive-
ness are looking at people when they
speak, learning to listen, asking ques-
tions when unsure, align the spine (sit
or stand straight and tall), and avoid
distractions. To respond to others

with attentiveness, it is important to
take initiative to follow it up; ending
conversations graciously and giving
consideration. An attentiveness quote
comes from Ben Sira (c. 190 B.C.)
"An attentive ear is the desire of a
wise man."
This month the Character Council
wishes to highlight the personality of

of which enough men, it is hoped, will learn to want what is
worth having."
SIn leading with dignity and respect with an emphasis on

with her family to South Carolina,
and then came full circle back to
Florida in 1962. When she arrived in
Gilchrist County in 1972, she was a
retired realtor and her husband was
a pharmacist. He has since passed
away.
Mrs. Shipley is a member of
Bethel Baptist Church. She loves
children and for many years found
herself teaching an AWANA class
each week. She believes that in or-
der to make people feel important,
which is grand work for a Christian,
"it is necessary to look them in the
eye, and pay attention to what they
are saying." Her belief is that "as one
treats others, so that treatment will be
returned, for how one treats others, is
a way to honor God."
Mrs. Helen believes that one way
to learn attentiveness is to "obey
God and to be honest, by being true
to oneself, to model one's actions
after Christ," and to learn the ef-
fects of acting out God's word in
faith, for Mrs. Shipley believes, more
than anything, "we can do all things
through Christ who strengthens us."
By following His words, and learn-
ing the importance of attentiveness, it
is showing the worth of a person by
giving undivided attention.

Learning was "skt high" at Trenton Elementary School's Fall FBBL 2012. Over 300 guests gathered for

ents listened to expectations and strategies for tip top performance.

Focusing On The Family
(Kent Heaton)


The family is the basic nucleus of any community and
how the family goes so goes the nation and the world. In
the human factor the home has always been the beginning
point of everything whether good or bad. The building
blocks of life are established in the relationship of the
home such as culture, language, disposition and character.
As husbands and wives unions are formed that create the
home and if blessed in this union children bring another
sense of wonder to make a fuller family. One unique
quality that everyone shares is they were brought into the
world in the same fashion. However the home created in
the union of two people is often very different.
How can we find answers for challenges faced in the
home? As husbands and wives we struggle to maintain the
fires of love and devotion to one another finding often the
questions that cause us to look for better answers. The
plight of children is a nagging demand to give them all
they need without giving them everything they want. Is it
possible to be married for life? Can a home be happy? Are
children truly a blessing to the home? Where can we find
the right answers?
Beginning Sunday. October 7, the Trenton church of
Christ will attempt to offer Biblical instruction as we focus
together the needs of the home. Max Dawson from
Beaumont, Texas begins a series of studies on the home
that will focus on topics like "Back to Eden" where the
home was first created. What better way to understand the
home than going back to its beginning as God designed
and intended the home to be.
Max will open the series with a study of "Five power
points that will bless your finilv: We all like to make
things a little simpler in life and five points will be easy to


.remember and apply to make our homes be a place of
security and love. He will direct a lesson Sunday night on
"Helping your kids become responsible adults." How
important to see the vision of training our children to be
complete adults. Many adults have never learned how to be
happy because they did not have the early training in
childhood.
Beginning Monday night lessons will include "Five things
-your parents -must do:-" -The challenge-of-bringing up-
well-adjusted children is to understand the role parents play
in the formation of those characters. Tuesday night is a
special night for YOUNG PEOPLE "Vill the real me
please stand up?" Often children today have an identity
crisis and through God's word we can learn how to give
them hope for life. On Wednesday night a lesson will focus
on "What dsads teach their kids about marriage. Someone
said the most important thing a father can do for his
children is to love their mother. Dads teach a lot about
marriage to their children.
The home is an important place to find happiness in
marriage even after the children leave. Thursday night the
lesson will be "Your fiftieth wedding anniversary"
concluding Friday night with "The autumn of our lives. "A
successful marriage is not characterized by an absence of
problems but the ability to solve those problems.
A warm welcome awaits you. You will not be asked for
donations or embarrassed in any way. Our services are
warm and inviting. Bring your family and enjoy an hour of
thoughtful study of God's word. We'can do this together.
Come! Sunday morning at 9:30am and then each evening
Sunday through Friday at 7:30pm. See you then!

Local state trooper


promoted to Lt.


By Susie Caulk
During a recent promotional cer-
emony, my husband, Charlie Caulk,
was promoted to the rank of Lieuten-
ant with the Florida Highway Patrol.
This is Charlie's third promotion in
the past three years and 1 felt worthy
of sharing his FHP journey with the
citizens of Gilchrist County.
Charlie began his career with the
Florida Highway Patrol in 2000,
with his first assignment being Dixie
County. After working the tri-county
area for five years, he was assigned
to the Contraband Interdiction Team
in Lake City where he served as a
felony officer for three years.
Charlie decided to transfer his job
to the Florida Keys in 2008 where he
and I resided in Key Largo for one
year. In 2009, Charlie was promoted
to the rank of Corporal (Traffic Ho-
micide Investigator) which landed
him back in Gainesville. After train-
ing in Gainesville for three months,
Charlie transferred back to Key Largo
where he served another year. During
his year in the Keys, Charlie was the
lead homicide investigator on several
high profile fatal crashes involving
DUI drivers.
In 2010, Charlie was promoted to
the rank of Sergeant and transferred
to Seminole County in January 2011.
Charlie served as the Night Supervi-
sor and commanded a squad of nine
troopers until August of 2012.
Earlier this year, Charlie tested
for Lieutenant and was recently pro-
moted. Charlie is now assigned as the
Commercial Motor Vehicle (CMV)
Division District Lieutenant in Pan-
ama City. where he supervises a divi-
sion comprised of two sergeants amd
twelve state troopers.
Words alone cannot express the ad-
miration and pride I have for my hus-
band and his achievements. His hard
work and dedication to public safety
continually proves to me and others
he has what it takes to be the "best


of the best" in his chosen profession.
If you happen to see him, please join
me in congratulating him on his well-
deserved promotion.

Florida is the latest state to report
the presence of epizootic hemorrhag-
ic disease (EHD) in its white-tailed
deer herd. This viral disease has been
confirmed in two deer and suspected
in at least 10 others from North Flori-
da that were examined this year.
EHD is an insect-borne disease,
transmitted to deer by small biting
flies known as midges or "no-see-
umns." The disease can cause illness
or death in individual deer but should
disappear when freezing tempera-
tures halt insect activity. EHD can-
not be transmitted to humans or pets:
however, as a general rule, people
should avoid consuming sick or un-
healthy deer.
"This is a disease that you typically
see in late summer or the fall, and it
often occurs after periods of drought,"

said Dr. Mark Cunningham, wildlife
veterinarian for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC). "The good news is we don't
expect long-term impacts to our
state's deer herd."
Deer infected with EHD may have
pronounced swelling of the head,
neck, and tongue, and often have
large ulcers in the mouth. Infected
deer are often found near water and
may be lethargic, lame and emaciat-
ed. The FWC is monitoring the health
of the state's deer herd and is examin-
ing deer for EHD and other diseases.
Sightings of sick or dead deer can
be reported to the FWC by calling
866-CWD-WATCH (866-293-9282).
which is the state's chronic wasting
disease hotline number.
In addition to Florida, at least 12
other states are reporting EHD cases.

Sheriff

27 years of experience
Fels RE: Experience
Fellow citizens and neighbors of Gilchrist County:
In order to be an effective sheriff and to be tough on crime, the sheriff has to do more than
run investigations. A sheriff has to be a good administrator in all aspects of the sheriff's depart-
ment. He has to oversee the jail, the dispatch center, civil process serving, budgeting, the court-
room security, investigations in addition to overseeing the road deputies. Being a former Army
sergeant with an extensive career in law enforcement, I posses the leadership qualities necessary
to lead all operations within the duties of the sheriff's office.
* I have worked as a corrections officer in the Gilchrist County Jail and understand these duties.
* I have worked as a dispatcher at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office and understand these duties
* Civil Process Serving is a high liability area for the Sheriff. 1 fully understand the process of this role
* As a fiscal conservative I will run the Sheriff's budget with great caution. These are my tax dollars
as well as yours and I will safeguard against any waste in the budget
* I will have a good working relationship with our new judge to ensure that our courthouse security is
second to none
* I have worked hundreds of investigations of varying crimes from misdemeanors to felonies. The
same investigative protocols are used in all crime investigations. -lowever the investigation is not
complete until the suspect is proven guilty in a court of law.
* I have been a patrol officer and understand its role. It is a pro-active duty not a reactive duty.

I worked 2 years in corrections and dispatch at the Gilchrist County Jail. I worked 25 years at the
Florida Highway Patrol. While at the FHP I was a patrol officer for 2 yrs, worked 1 year on the
DUI task force, and for 22 years I was assigned to the CIU, working with a multitude of federal
state and local agencies. Over my 27 years of law enforcement I have built strong working
relationships with other agencies and will be able to use these resources to help benefit the
citizens of Gilchrist County.
I have spent my entire career removing criminals from the streets. Gilchrist County is the
place where I call home. I now feel it is my calling to serve and protect the fine citizens of
Gilchrist County, my neighbors.
