performance-based compensation
system throughout the school district.
The objectives of the SEEC Project
are to increase student growth and
graduation rates through the improve-
ment of teacher performance.
The District has adopted a vision
of instructional improvement found-
ed on the concept that "highly effec-
tive teachers and leaders make the
difference in student achievement"
and that valid and reliable measure-
ment of effective teaching is directly
aligned to student improvement.
The SEEC project incorporates
performance-based compensation
and professional development com-
ponents to provide financial incen-
tives and career-ladder positions to
participating teachers and adminis-
trators.
Gilchrist. County will receive

Solid Waste

will have new

office space
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Solid Waste
and Recycling Center will soon
have a larger office space at the
recycling center 2 miles east of Bell
on NW 10th Street. The Gilchrist
County Commission approved the
purchase and relocation of a used
metal building to be relocated to
the center near Bell. The 24x36 box
size office was available to Gilchrist
County for $6,500 plus the delivery
and setup cqst for $10,170. This new
office space is warranted to meet and
exceed 130 miles per hour wind load
guidelines.
Pat Fisher, Gilchrist County Solid
Waste Supervisor, attended the
Commission meeting on Monday,
October 1 to answer questions
from the'board involving the new


es to support the project.
The first two years the SEEC proj-
ect will be implemented at Trenton
and Bell High; in the remaining three
years implementation will increase to
all schools throughout the district.
NEFEC is a regional, non-profit,
educational service agency estab-
lished in 1976 to provide cooperative


services to member school districts.
The mission of the Consortium is
to help member districts cooperative-
ly meet their educational goals and
objectives by providing programs
and services that individual districts
would not be able to provide as ef-
fectively or as economically when
acting alone.


Member districts of the Consor-
tium include Baker, Bradford, Co-
lumbia, Dixie, Flagler, Gilchrist,
Hamilton, Lafayette, Levy, Nassau,
Putnam, Suwannee and Union Coun-
ties as well as Florida School for the
Deaf and the Blind and P.K. Yonge

Ironman competitor works to


raise funds for pregnancy center


My name is John Bongiovanni
and on November, 3, 2012, I will
attempt to complete an Ironman in
Panama City Beach, which con-
sists of swimming 2.4 miles, bik-
ing 112 miles then running a 26.2
mile marathon. All 140.6 miles
have to be completed in less than
17 hours and is typically regarded
as the most challenging endurance
event in the world.
I have teamed up with the Iron-
man foundation, an organization
that gives me the opportunity to
raise interest and support for a
non-profit charity and ministry. I
am excited to have the opportu-
nity to raise interest and support
for The Harmony Pregnancy &
Resource Center in Chiefland. The
H.P.R.C. is a wonderful and car-
ing place that offers free services
such as pregnancy tests, referrals,
counseling, diapers and clothes
to women and childreii in the tri-
county area. You can read more at
www.harmonyprc.org or call them
at 352-493-7773.
God has allowed me to train and
participate in this race and I want
to give back to His work. My goal
is to raise as much as possible for
the HPRC. 100% of the funds you
give will go to the Harmony Preg-
nancy & Resource Center.
There are three ways you can
donate to the Harmony Pregnancy
& Resource Center: E-mail me at
johnsusan98@att.net and I will
send you a link to my personal and


office space. Commissioner D.
Ray Harrison, Jr. made a motion to
approve the purchase of the used
building office space for the solid
waste facility for a total of $10,170.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas gave
a second to the motion which opened
the floor for discussion. Chairman

Keith Perry seeks election as

State Representative, Dist. 21

in November 6 contest


Submitted
As the current State Representative
for District 22, which includes parts
of Alachua, I have fought to improve
the standards that we set for schools
in our community, the University of
Florida, Santa Fe College, and local
public schools. I have two school-
aged children, and I understand how
important it is to invest in children
because they are the future. It is
crucial for our community to have
strong representation in Tallahassee
for Shands, the University of Florida,
and Santa Fe. If any of these is not
funded well enough, it will damage
not only our community but the State
of Florida as a whole.
While in the Legislature I have
fought to help Florida's small busi-
nesses, create new jobs by reducing
taxes and removing regulations that
destroy job opportunities. Also, one
of my personal achievements while
in Tallahassee was leading the effort
to ensure our roads are safe by calling
for the Highway Patrol to adopt new
guidelines to prevent another tragedy
like the accident on 1-75 in Paynes
Prairie just a few months ago.
Due to the re-districting process, 1
am now running to represent the com-
munity of District 21, which includes
part of Alachua, and all of Gilchrist
and Dixie Counties. After living
here for over 46 years, being the lo-
cal business owner of Perry Roofing
Contractors for the past 36 years, and
falliheiihi two daughters, 1 know how
important it is to have representation
in Tallahassee that is willing to fight
for our prosperity. We need some-
one who will challenge unnecessary
regulations and increases in taxes,
which make it harder for local busi-
ness owners to prosper.
It is imperative that we elect lead-


Keith Perry
ers who are dedicated to the people
they are representing so that we have
confidence in- the decisions being
made that affect us all. We see this by
their involvement in the community
before reaching elected office. I have
been the President of House of Hope,
which is a Christian-based rehabili-
tation program for newly-released
prisoners, as well as a supporter of
Habitat for Humanity and many other
local organizations. My experiences
in these groups have been rewarding.
and it has given me the perspective
that I needed to continue my efforts
in making a positive impact on the
people in our Community.
November 6th will be a vital elec-
tion for our community, and it is im-
portant that we have a voice for com-
mon sense leadership representing
our neighborhoods in Tallahassee.
We need someone who is willing to
fight for regulations to improve edu-
cation and job growth in our area. To
learn more about me or contact me,
please feel free to visit my website at

This flag isn't just a
flag!

This may seem to be a story of un-
importance, but I must tell you why
it is very important! My son-in-law,
Adam Ivey, born and raised in Geor-
gia, served our country as a Marine
in two tours in Iraq. He, like many of
our service men and women, put our
country and freedom of others first.
When his 4 years of service were fin-
ished he returned home. He had many
things to deal with. 1 don't think a.
soldier ever gets over what they ex-
perience in war, but he has settled
into life as a husband and father.
He holds onto a few items that have
been in his possession each time he
left our soil for the war zone, one of
these being, a Georgia Bulldog flag.
It seems so petty, doesn't it?
But you must understand what this
flag means to him. Before he left for
his first tour of duty, this flag was
given to him by a family member and
told "wherever you go, you will al-
ways have a little piece of home with
you". That piece of home has been an
important reminder of the family and
loved ones left behind and that were
here to welcome him home after his
service was completed. Well, being
the Georgia fan he is, on game days
Adam hangs this flag at the entrance
of his driveway on County Road 340,
just inside Gilchrist County until this
past Saturday.
When he went to retrieve the flag it
wasn't there. I don't know why sorhe-
one would feel it is okay or funny to
take something that didn't belong to

them. This wasn't just a flag, it was
a reminder of the love his family has
for him and a time in his life when
little things like a flag would get you
through the night.
Thank you,
Karen Floyd


Thank you.
Dear John,
My son and daughter lost their
father on September 22, 2012, in
Tennessee. They were there for two
weeks staying in a motel at $100 a
night.
We sent an obituary to your paper
last week and were not charged for it.
If we had put it in the Gainesville Sun
it would have cost $250. I wonder if
the people in Gilchrist County know
how lucky they are to have you and
your paper each week.
We want to thank you and your
staff for this and tell you what a joy it
is each week to look for the Journal
in the mail.
Thank you!
The Charles W. Robinson Family

COOKING AN D CAR RYIN ON
COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


While thumbing through a South
Carolina cookbook recently I came
across a recipe for Shrimp Thermi-
dor. Reading the recipe brought back
memories of-a special dinner we en-
joyed many years ago at the Light-
house Restaurant in Fanning Springs.
I think it was maybe a Rotary dinner
and Sue, one of the former owners
of the restaurant, was on hand to
make sure the seafood buffet she had
planned especially for the meeting
met everyone's expectations. 1 was
beside myself over a casserole dish
of cream sauce and shrimp. 1 told Sue
how good it was and in typical Sue
fashion she just laughed off the com-
pliment.
Sue said something like, "Oh,
that's just Shrimp Thermidor, noth-
ing to it." Meanwhile I was thinking
that 1 could lick the last teaspoon of
sauce from the chafing pan.
This was back in the days when
James was in the kitchen frying up
perfect golden hand-peeled, hand-
breaded shrimp and the dining room
was buzzing with happy customers.
Do you remember those beautiful
plates, so mounded with shrimp that
when Carolyn, a very sweet waitress,
set the plate down in front of you a
couple of the shrimp would fall off
the plate? Do you recall the steaming
bowls of rich oyster stew?
What can 1 say, even years later, I
still miss the Lighthouse Restaurant
of old, back when there was a waiting
line most every night, and you knew
the wait would be worth it.
Ah, Sue, 1 miss your cheerful per-
sonality and quick laugh.
For years I've been reading Shrimp
Thermidor recipes and finally this
past weekend 1 got around to trying
my hand at making one. This recipe
is really simple and once the shrimp
are peeled, the rest is pretty quick.
I've changed the recipe up a bit, so
it is no longer a true Shrimp Ther-
midor. so I've given it a new name.
The original recipe called for the
sauce to be spooned over two cups ot
cooked rice and topped with cheese
and baked. John and I have been on
a pasta kick lately, so I used pasta in
this recipe instead. I also added the
mushrooms, garlic and a touch of
cayenne.
Funny thing about shrimp. While
almost every food item in the grocery
store has been jumping in price, the
price of shrimp has stayed about the
same. While years ago I purchased
them only for a special occasion like
a birthday or anniversary because
They were a little pricey for our bud-
get, today they are actually no more
expensive than buying a beef roast.
I guess the price of shrimp has not
risen because our markets are flood-
ed with foreign, farm-raised shrimp.
When buying shrimp look closely
and buy only wild-caught Ameri-
can shrimp from Florida or Georgia.
Shrimp were $8.99 per pound (heads
off) at Winn Dixie and they were
wild caught from Mayport, up near
Jacksonville. So I spent just over $13
for the shrimp for this recipe.

The Right Kind Of King
(Kent Heaton)


The nation of Israel was born from a promise to Abram to
make of his seed a great nation (Genesis 12:2). Established
at Mt. Sinai, Israel would have a troubled beginning
drifting forty years through the wilderness before crossing
the Jordan to take their place in Canaan. It would be many
more years before the first king would sit upon a throne
and rule the nation. Only three men would rule over a
united kingdom for a period of 120 years: Saul, son of
Kish, David, son of Jesse and finally Solomon, son of
David. After Solomon's death the nation of Israel would
plunge into a chaos of disharmony and wickedness ending
finally in the total destruction of the northern tribes by the
hand of the Assyrians and bondage of the southern tribes in
Babylon.
Throughout the reigns of the kings who sat upon the
throne of the northern kingdom of Israel not one man was
righteous. Beginning with Jeroboam the Lord described the
rule of the northern kings as evil. "But you have done
more evil than all who were before you, for you have
gone and made for yourself other gods and molded
images to provoke Me to anger, and have cast Me behind
your back" (1 Kings 14:9). Nadab, the son of Jeroboam
"did evil in the sight of the LORD, and walked in the waya
of hisfither, and in his sin by which he had made Isr:ael
sin" (1 Kings 15:26).
"But there was no one like :hab who sold himself to do
wickedness in the sight of the Lord, because Jezebel his
wife stirred him up" (I Kings 21:25). All of the kings of
Israel were characterized by the words ".nd he did evil in
the sight of the Iord; he did not depart from the sins of
.leroboam the son of Nebat, who had made Israel sin" (2
Kings 15:24).


In contrast of the northern kings Judah would enjoy years
of peace and prosperity when kings would rule who would
follow in the way of God. Like their northern sister, Judah
would have evil kings but men like Josiah would govern the
nation who would do "what was right in tlhe sight of the
Lord, and walkh in all the ways of his further David; he
did not turn aside to the right hand or to the left" (2 Kings
22:1-2). The prophet Ahijah had warned Jeroboam the
judgment of the king would be whether he would "heed all
that 1 command you, walk in My \ways. and do what is right
in My sight, to keep My statutes and My commandments"
(I Kings 11:38).
David Lanphear observed. "The kings of .ludah and
Israel are described as either good or evil. The Scriptures
don't tell us much about where they stood on issues like
defense, foreign policy, education, the econont., or
national debt. Generally, they are described as good or evil
because of their allegiance to God or approval of idol
worship or sacrificing their children to Moloch... Nations
were judged as penitent or wicked based on their
obedience to God." The wise inan reminds us that
"wisdom rests in the heart of hint who has understatiding,
but what is in the heart of fools is made known.
Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any
people" (Proverbs 14:33-34).
The right kind of king was one who had a view of God as
Creator (Genesis 1:1) and Judge (Icclesiastes 12:14). Paul
exhorted that "supplications, prayers, intercessions, and
giving of thanks he made.for all men. for kings and all
who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and
peaceable life in all godliness and reverence" (1 Iimothy
2:2).

Barbara Merritt (D)


What made you decide to run for
public office?
With the retirement of Marilyn
Bruce, it only made sense to me to
take this next step in my career.
The Tax Collector's Office collects
and distributes funds for multiple
government agencies that are gov-
erned by a variety of Florida Statutes
that must be complied with on a daily
basis.
The Tax Collector should be some-
one who has the working knowledge
and the hands on experience. 1 feel I
can serve the public in this position
for years to come.

Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
Simply put, 1 am qualified because
of my 28 plus years of experience in
this office serving the residents of
Gilchrist County.
I am also certified with the State
of Florida Department of Revenue as
a certified Florida collector assistant
and currently hold the title of Tag &
Title Specialist.

Currently, the Tax Collector's Of-
fice is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. each day. If elected, would
you consider changing the hours of
operations to better accommodate
customers who work from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. each day and therefore can't
currently make it into the office be-
fore closing?
Certainly, if elected, I would con-
sider changing the hours of this office
to help accommodate the working
population.
With this being said, the current

hours of the courthouse are from 8:30
a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Extending the hours would require
additional security beyond the hours
of the courthouse.

If elected Tax Collector, would
you attempt to provide driver's li-
cense services to Gilchrist County
residents, who currently have to
drive to Chiefland, where the Levy
County Tax Collector's Office is
currently providing this service,
for assistance?
The current tax collector has al-
ready initiated the driver's license
issue.
The challenges we face in imple-
menting this service is acquiring
space to operate efficiently, providing
security for both staff and customers,
and additional funding necessary to
purchase the necessary equipment.
The Florida Statutes states that by
July 1, 2015, all tax collector offices
will have these services, and I be-
lieve this is a service that will benefit
Gilchrist County residents.

Advertise in the Journal--
It really pays off!


What made you decide to run for
public office?
My family, friends and neighbors
in 2002 encouraged me to consider
running for office knowing that I am
honest and hard-working. They rec-
ognized my leadership skills and love
for Gilchrist County. After serious
thought, research and much prayer,
I ran for County Commissioner and
was elected.
It is humbling to realize the sup-
port of so many people who helped
me serve in this office for ten years.
1 have gained a wealth of knowledge
and bring years of experience under-
standing how government works on
the local and state level.
When it was known that Mrs.
Bruce was retiring as Tax Collector, I
spoke with her about the position. She
helped me understand what needs to
be done; I feel well-qualified to serve.
As a state of Florida constitutional
officer, I can do so much more for the
people of Gilchrist County.

Why are you the best candidate in
the race?
Having owned and operated my
own business for 32 years, I worked
in sales and service. I know what it
takes to serve the public efficiently
and effectively. I started working with
my father in the produce business,
had a Sporting Goods company and
I am a master taxidermist. 1 managed
employees and balanced the budget;
collected sales taxes and worked
with the Department of Revenue:
sold hunting and fishing licenses. As'
a County Commissioner I have been
responsible for approving 10 county
budgets including the Tax Collector's
budget. I have worked with legisla-
tors on Florida Statutes and Laws. I
fought hard against unfunded man-
dates that can be a burden on our res-
idents. When Gilchrist County was
under a court order to upgrade court

To The Residents of Gilchrist County:

For 27 years I have worked relentlessly removing criminals from the streets.
Fighting crime and keeping neighborhoods safe is at the core of who I am. As your next
sheriff I will be a working sheriff. I am not a shirt and tie guy and if elected that will not
change.

As your sheriff, I will be open and accessible to all citizens. We will have more
advanced training for our deputies and investigators. We will work with surrounding agencies to
work crimes for the benefit of our citizens. We will be more involved with our schools. Our
website will be updated and be more resourceful. We will have a page with the street slang for
drugs so parents will not be in the dark.

I am also the only veteran in this race; I was in the heat of combat in the Gulf
War. As a military police sergeant I led troops in combat. While military service is not required
to be sheriff, the skills acquired from military service in time of combat cannot be reproduced.

As part of my role as sheriff, I will hold regular town hall meetings to hear
concerns directly from the citizens themselves. I will use my many years of experience busting
up drug houses and drug dealers to clean up our community. I have the in depth knowledge and
hands on experience to clean up our county from the drug dealers who bring it down.

I have been asked several times what is my biggest role as sheriff. That answer is
easy, it is to protect and preserve your constitutional rights as Americans. I am a
constitutional conservative and I will ensure your rights are not infringed upon.

I have served my country overseas, I have served the state of Florida keeping
neighborhoods across the'region safe. Now I want to focus my attention on my community,
the place where I call home and work to make Gilchrist County, our county the safest it
can possibly be.

facilities, 1 worked with fellow com-

for a 2 million dollar addition to the
Court House without using any local
tax dollars!
1 am dedicated to innovative and
new technology to improve service
while saving taxpayer dollars. I be-
lieve open communication helps
solve problems. 1 have leadership
skills and computer knowledge. 1 am
dedicated to community service and
want to give back as a public servant.
When elected, the office team of the
Tax Collector will work together to
provide friendly, efficient and profes-
sional customer service.

Currently, the Tax Collector's Of-
fice is open from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. each day. If elected, would
you consider changing the hours of
operations to better accommodate
customers who work from 8 a.m. to
5 p.m. each day and therefore can't
currently make it into the office be-
fore closing?
1 am researching the possibilities of
extending the office hours if needed
while considering the cost, security
issues and the number of residents
who might benefit. It seems that the
Tax Collector's office might be able
to operate independently from the
other offices. Enhanced technol-
ogy might provide service to some
without the need of going to the of-
fice. There may be ways to provide
service other than using technology.
How to best meet the needs of our
citizens deserves to be explored.
If elected Tax Collector, would you
attempt to provide driver's license
services to Gilchrist county resi-
dents, who are currently having to
drive to Chiefland, where the Levy
County Tax Collector's Office is
currently providing this service,
for assistance?
While researching this issue. 1
learned that Florida has only 3 state-
owned driver license offices, which
by July 1, 2015, will be closed. Each
county miay have to have its own of-


lice. I have already visited other coun-
ties to find out details on customers
served, number of employees need-
ed, the cost of doing business, needed
space and how much revenue is gen-
erated. If the State mandates that we
have to have our own office, then my
experience of working with the Board
of County Commissioners, the Clerk
of the Court, and legislators in Tal-
lahassee to find funding for the court-
house addition, will be invaluable. I
have already studied the possibility
of remodeling and/or expanding the
Tax Collector's office to provide the
driver license requirements. It would
need more operational and storage
space. It would be a great benefit to
the residents of Gilchrist County! I
think it can be done because my ex-
perience has shown me how to get
things lone.

given something more valuable than
a one-time cash award this morning.
When you began this day, you were
in effect handed 1,440 minutes, not
dollars, to spend in any way that you
choose. The difference is that time,
unlike money, is a non-renewable re-
source, meaning that once it is gone,
you will never regain those moments.
Therefore, it is so important to make
the most of the gift of time we have
been given instead of just rushing
through our days. There are all kinds
of great seminars and books written
about how to best use your time but
I want to share three with you that
can give you a quick start to a more
productive day. First, make a list of
your priorities: what is important to
you? Maybe it is your health, grades,
career, friendships, and/or family
relationships? Our priorities should
be evaluated regularly because they
change depending on the season of
life you may be in, or what circum-
stances you are experiencing. In this
season of my life 1 enjoy working
outside the home, but about 15 years
ago, my days were spent changing
diapers and chasing toddlers. Dur-
ing that season, raising my children
was my priority and where I devot-
ed most of my time. Once you have
your list, take note of how much time
you actually spend on these. What
do you \w;nt to accomlTplish todalv'.
This week? This year'? If we aren't
intentional about our priorities, we
often find the things that are most im-
portant to us suffer while we spend
our time on things much less signifi-
cant. The Bible records a great piece
of wisdom related to time in Psalm
90:12, "Teach us to number our days
aright that we may gain a heart of
wisdom." Rememberine that we are
not promised tomorrow helps us stay
focused on what is really important.
Once you have defined your priori-
ties, it will be easier to dedicate time
for them into your daily routine, and
you will notice that once goals are
not neglected, they tend to be accom-
plished much more quickly!

Health Academy seniors host business partner luncheon

By Janet Bradley,
Director of Secondary Education
The Academy of Health Related
Professions at Bell High School host-
ed an appreciation luncheon for their
business partners on Friday, Oct. 5,
2012. The luncheon was hosted by
the Health Academy seniors to show
their appreciation to the business
partners who have supported them
throughout their four years in the
program. The Health Academy part-
ners include local businesses, elected
officials, local colleges, local health
facilities, and representatives from
the Gilchrist County School Board


and Gilchrist Schools District Office.
Although all partners were not in
attendance, those who were listened
as each senior spoke and shared their
plans for the future.
Sheree Lancaster, school board at-
torney, said, "1 am impressed at the
depth in which these students have
planned for their future after graduat-
ing from Bell High School."
Some of the future plans included
professions as paramedics, nurses,
veterinarians, and doctors.

the Academy, attended the luncheon

am ahead of most of my classmates
in my RN Program due to my expe-

School. The check off list at clini-
cals does not scare me because 1 did
that last year under the direction of
Mrs. Havelock, our Health Academy
teacher and Coordinator."
Students in the Health Academy
are provided a four-year program that
offers a sequence of courses that pro-
vides coherent and rigorous content
needed to prepare for further educa-
tion and careers in Health Science.
The program also provides compe-
tency-based applied learning that
contributes to the academic knowl-
edge, higher-order reasoning and
problem-solving skills and knowl-
edge of all aspects of Health Science
careers. The coursework for the Bell
High School Health Academy in-
cludes Medical Skills and Services,
Health Science 1 and 2, Allied Health
Assisting and First Responder.
Before their senior year begins,
each student selects an exit point for
intense focus during their final year
in the Academy. Most exit points re-
quire a designated number of clinical
hours to be performed in an off-cam-
pus facility during the Health Acad-
emy class time.
Currently students are participating
in clinical at the Gilchrist County
EMS Station and at Ayers Health and
Rehab Center.

Business partners who attended
the luncheon.

grams in the District and we appreci-
ate the support provided by our busi-
ness partners," said Superintendent
Don Thomas.
The students in the Health Acad-
emy take Industry Certification
exams based on their exit point. In-
dustry Certification Exams are state
approved and provide the students
with a certification for employment.
During the 2011-2012 school year,
100 percent of the Health Academy
students passed their Industry Certi-
fication Exam.
This year, there are 17 students
who selected the Certified Nursing
Assistant (CNA) exit point and 4
students have selected the First Re-
sponder exit point.
"We are extremely proud of our stu-
dents. They continue to excel under
the direction of our Health Academy
nurse, Katrina Havelock. At the same
time students are working towards
their Industry Certification, they can
also earn college credit through Ca-
reer Pathways Articulation Agree-
ments we have with Florida Gateway
College and Santa Fe College. Our
local and college partners provide
many opportunities for these students
through the Career Tech Programs,"
stated Janet Bradley. Director of Sec-
ondary Education.


A******* Se ******* To the Voters of Gilchrist County:
"- r ; : : ... ,.. -The Gilchrist County School System has
j i. I:. continuously been ranked as one of the top 5 school
; '.districts in the entire state. It has received an "A" grade
Sunder Florida's accountability system for the past eight

S" I (8) years in a row. The high ranking from the state
grading system does not come as a surprise to me but
confirmed what was already evident; we have always
S.. : .. "-i'.- been blessed with a successful school system. Our
SUPERINTENT of SCHS communities are full of graduates from the Gilchrist

SUPERINTENDENT of SCHOOLS County School System that are very successful,
productive citizens. Our level of success has not been
by chance but is the result of hard work from students, dedicated teachers, devoted parents and a great support staff. Our schools
are nestled in communities that are comprised of caring and supportive parents, volunteers, boosters and businesses. The Gilchrist
County School System is guaranteed continued success as long as it has leadership that realizes that the schools belong to the
community in which they serve and a harmonious relationship with its citizens is essential. The State's grading system has only
reinforced what we already knew but in the process has put our teachers, students and staff under extreme pressure. The teachers,
students and staff are constantly being scrutinized by the cumbersome, lengthy evaluation system that has developed into a
distraction and is now becoming counterproductive. We have some of the best teachers, faculty and staff in the state and they must
be appreciated and allowed to perform their duties as educated professionals.
I believe that everyone in the School System should be held accountable but '. -,1. ';
we must get back to School-Based Management and let our educators do what
they do best teach. I believe that we must graduate a well-rounded student i
who will be successful in whatever endeavor they choose after they leave our
school system and I will continue to lobby in Tallahassee for what is best for
them. .. ?
My goal as Superintendent will be to ensure that our.schools will continue to
meet high standards and provide a first-class education for our students. I will
remember that I am entrusted with the education and safety of our children. -
Please Vote Rob Rankin for Superintendent of Schools on November 6th. : ,_ s\ .,

The Tigers' defense applies the pressure on the Eagles' offense as sophomore cornerback, Asa Maragoni,
catches the running back and drops him for a three-yard loss before he gets out of the backfield.


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers came out of
the gates Friday night lile it was just
another day at the office as Cedric
Stokes set the pace with a 61-yard
kickoff return for a score and the rout
was on.
The disadvantage for the visit-
ing Eagles was that the weather was
rainy and it was Homecoming 2012
and Bronson was the flavor of the
celebration.
The Tigers executed their offense
through numerous running backs for
476 rushing yards.
The Bronson Eagles' 61-6 stumble
in this District 6 IA clash was just an-
other setback for this up and coming
football team.
Cedric Stokes' four runs for 121
yards and two touchdowns led the 5-
0 Tigers that remain in the No. 2 spot
in Class IA.
Melvin Adams had five carries for
111 yards and two scores for the Ti-
gers. Hunter Parrish had five carries
for 85 yards with two touchdowns.
The No. 2 ranked Tienton Tigers
will welcome the No. 3 ranked Dixie
Coimty Bears to Tiger Field Friday
night in what is expected to be four
quarters of high-flying, hard-hitting
Class 1A football.
These two teams went to the final
seconds of the fourth period in Cross


City in the 2011 game. This is expect-
ed to be equal to that contest. Seating
is expected to be limited as out of
town fans will be in attendance. The


kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. Come out
and support your high school football
team. This will be a great atmosphere
for the rural communities.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Oct. 4, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum.
We had several visitors stop by and
joined in the group to help sandwich
Linda's Watermelon Quilt.
Everyone enjoyed seeing the quilt
and the two king-sized pillow shams
that she had completed.
Winnelle's blue and white Jewel
Box quilt has been sandwiched and
is in the frame to be quilted. This
is a twin-size quilt that is bright and
cheery.
We're using a quilt frame that was
donated to the Museum which we
wanted to try to see how the "new"
frame works. The frame is very stur-
dy and the height is easily adjustable
for those doing the quilting.
Greg and the boys were out during
the week. One of the boys has started
rearranging the quilts on the racks.
He's grouping the baby quilts togeth-
er and will re-fold the larger quilts.
The outside looks great.
Thanks, Lancaster.
We're working in the Quilt room
planning to hang pictures of Win-
nelle, Mary Brookins and many of
the ladies who were so helpful in get-
ting the Museum started and built.
We have the donated fabric folded
and measured so the room is begin-
ning to take shape.
The decorative plates have been
moved to the hallways along with
more of the sampler blocks that had
been made over the years.
While the volunteers may be keep-
ing the Museum open, we couldn't
do without the Community's support
and help.
The wonderful donations of fab-
ric, quilt/craft magazines and various
other items really help. Stop in and
say "hi" when you're in the area, it's
also OK with us if you make a special
trip to see us. The rocking chairs are
waiting and the weather will soon let
us sit on the front porch and swing.

Gilchrist County Citizens:
I would like to say a few words about
Barbara Merritt, who is running for Tax ', t
Collector for Gilchrist County. She may not
have the name recognition or the political
background as other candidates, however
there is no one who deserves the job more and
no one who could do a better job. The citizens
of Gilchrist County owe a huge thank you to W. W. Welch for
having the foresight to hire Barbara 28 years ago.
As the owner of Bell Concrete Products, I have many heavy
vehicles. Buying tags and transferring titles is not as simple for
private individuals. We have to provide proof that we have
paid our federal sales taxes, state sales taxes, road use taxes,
proof of insurance, etc. For 28 years now, I have always
searched for Barbara Merritt to help me through this process.
She is always knowledgeable and courteous. Barbara's attitude
is always 'How can I help the customer?", not "How can I
cause more problems for the taxpayer?"
Gilchrist County has enjoyed a long run of competent Tax
Collectors. I would like to see this tradition continue. So,
please vote Barbara Merritt for Tax Collector.
Sincerely,
Jack H. Smith

This is a brief summary of the
2012 proposed Ilorida Constitutional
Amendments that will appear on the
November 6, election ballot.
Amendment 1
-lHealth Care Services -This would
add an amendment that would per-
Init the state to pull out of the federal
healthcare program, the Patient Pro-
tection and Affordable Care Act aka
Obamacare. It would prohibit laws
forcing individuals or employers to
buy or provide healthcare coverage.
Yes vote: Means you want the
Florida Constitution to include a
provision that prohibits the govern-
ment from requiring you to purchase
health insurance.
No vote: Means you do not want
the Florida Constitution to include
a provision that prohibits the gov-
ernment from requiring you to buy
health insurance.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 2
Veterans Disabled due to Combat
Injury: Homestead Property Tax Dis-
count This would expand a special
homestead property exemption to in-
clude combat disabled veterans who
were not Florida residents when they
entered the military to qualify for a
discount on their property taxes.
Yes vote: Would mean you want
the state to give a property tax dis-
count to disabled veterans who move
to Florida after entering the military.
No vote: Means you do not want
to extend the tax discount to disabled
veterans who moved to Florida after
entering the military.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 3
State Government Revenue Limita-
tion -This amendment would replace
the existing state revenue limitation,
which is based on Florida personal
income growth, and replaces it with
a new revenue limitation. That cap
would be based on inflation and pop-
ulation change. In other words, this
amendment would set a state revenue
limited each year based on a formula
that considers population growth and
inflation instead of using the current
method of calculating the revenue
limit based on personal income.
Yes vote: Means you want the state
to change the way it calculates its
revenue limit.
No vote: Means you do not.want
the state to change the way it calcu-
lates its revenue limit.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 4
Property Tax Limitations: Property
Value Decline; Reduction tor Non-
Homesteaded Assessment Increase:
Delay of Scheduled Repeal If
passed this would prevent increases
in the assessed value of homestead
properties and some non-homestead-
ed properties when the market values
of those properties decrease. It would
reduce the annual growth assessment
cap on non-homesteaded properties
from 10%' to 517. It would provide
first-time homesteaders with an addi-
tional exemption equal to 50%' of the
homes' market value. However, that
exemption would drop to zero after

vor the enhanced tax breaks being
proposed.
No vote: You are against the en-
hanced tax breaks being proposed.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 5
State Courts This amendment
requires Supreme Court justices ap-
pointed by the governor to be con-
firmed by the Senate. It would allow
the Legislature to repeal a court rule
with a simple majority instead of a
two-thirds majority. The amendment
would allow the state House of Rep-
resentatives to review Judicial Quali-
fications Commission files whether
or not they were related to an im-
peachment.
Yes vote: Means you want the Sen-
ate to have confirmation power over
Supreme Court Appointees and some
authority over changes to the rules
that -govern the state's courts. You
also want to grant the house access to
Judicial Qualifications Commission's
investigative files on judges.
No vote: Means you do not want
these proposed changes made to the
state's judiciary.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 6
Prohibition On Public Funding of
Abortions; Construction of Abortion
Rights -This amendment would stop
the use of public funds for any abor-
tion or for health benefits that cover
abortions. It would mirror federal
law, which prevents federal spend-
ing for most abortions. However this
amendment would not apply to ex-
penditures required by federal law for
cases where a women has a physical
disorder, injury or illness that would
place her in danger of death unless
she has an abortion, or cases of rape
or incest.
Yes vote: Means you support put-
ting the existing federal ban on the
use of public funds for abortions into
the state constitution.
No vote: Means you are against
placing the existing federal ban on
using public funds for abortions into
the state constitution.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment 7
Religious Freedom Removed
Amendment 8
Religious Freedom This amend-
ment would remove a part of the state
Constitution that blocks taxpayer
funds from being spent on religious
institutions, including any churches,
sects and religious denominations.
The new language would replace a
provision in the constitution which is


125 years old. The amendment says
an individual or entity may not be
denied funding benefits or support
based on religious identity or belief.
Yes vote: Means you want to re-
move from the State Constitution
prohibition that prevents religious
institutions from receiving taxpayer
funding.
No vote: Means you want to retain
the provision in the Constitution that
does not allow state funding religious
institutions.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Amendment'9
Homestead Property Tax Exemp-
tion for Surviving Spouse df Military
Veteran or First Responder This
would give a homestead property tax
exemption to the surviving spouse of
a military veteran or first responder
killed in the line of duty. The provi-
sion would authorize the Legislature
to totally or partially exempt a sur-
viving, spouse's homestead property
for being taxed.
Yes vote: Means you want the state
to give the full homestead exemption
to the surviving spouses.
No vote: Means you do not want
the state to grant the full homestead
exemption to the surviving spouces.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature

to businesses and would allow for an
enhancement of the tangible personal
property tax exemption from $25,000
to $50,000. -

of doubling the tangible personal
property tax exemption and allowing
cities and counties to expand the ex-
emptions.

tain long term residency on prop-
erty; Equal to Assessed Value This

tion would be equal to the assessed
value of a homestead property, if the
property's market value is less than
$250,000; the owner has maintained
permanent resident there for at least
25 years and the owner is 65 or older

der law.

ies and counties should not have the
authority to grant a full property tax
discount to eligible seniors.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature

would create a new council made up
of the student body presidents from

tion representative on the state uni-
versity system's 17-member Board
of Governors.

nors would be chosen.

GREAT SERVICE! GREAT PRICE!

After school begins we have the "FTE week" in.our

schools.

This is a snapshot of the county's (full time equivalent) student population for
the eleven-day period DOE calls "date certain'. What is significant about FTE is
the fact that a great deal of the budget's funding is derived from the results. The
district is paid according to the number of students that "show up" for that brief
window of time. The actual number of students reported is compared to what was
estimated last November when the projected FTE counts was given for this school
year. There will be another one in February 2013. This may go unnoticed to many
people except the teachers and administrators who help coordinate it and the data
entry people who may have to enter the information.
The recent survey may reflect a gain in student population over last year. This
net gain represents growth and it comes with a double-edged sword. First of all, the
district will get additional funds from DOE for the new students but typically will
not receive enough. With each gain in student enrollment comes the need for
additional classroom space, textbooks, staff, transportation, and the list goes on.
Or, the opposite may be that the schools lost students below the estimate and
funding has already been used in staffing our schools and commitments have been
made that may be difficult to pay for because funding will be reduced.
I think you get the point. Behind the numbers are the faces of children in
need of our service and somehow we must deliver. Management of school
business is a complex issue and requires unique skills and abilities to be successful.
The advertised budget was over 24 million dollars and represents the largest
employer in the county. Your school board wrestles with these problems and more.
I believe I can continue to add proven leadership and experience to our School
Board.
I have a sincere desire to serve our community and use my knowledge and depth
of experience to help our School Board continue towards the standard of expected
excellence.

Tommy Langford called for a vote on
the motion and the board approved
the action by a unanimous vote.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Bobby Crosby explained to the
Commission that a recent action
by the board to purchase a new
ambulance unit has been returned to
the county, the company cancelled
the order and has since gone out of
business.
Crosby reported the Gilchrist
Emergency Medical Service has
received three new bids for a like
unit. The bids received are from:


Horton Emergency vehicles
$160,131; Braun $158,740; and
Wheeled Coach -$156,840. The
County Administrator recommended
the Wheeled Coach bid of $156,840
for the new unit. The approved bid
is an actual, price increase of $1,200
above the cost of the canceled unit,
the County Administrator explained.
Commissioner Randy Durden made
a motion to approve the purchase of
the unit that was recommended by the
County Administrator. Commissioner
Harrison agreed and the board voted
in support of the motion.

Long-Time Gilchrist County Resident, Doug Beach
Endorses ROBERT (BOBBY) SCHULTZ
for Gilchrist County Sheriff.


Since the Sheriff is the chief law enforcement officer of the county, we need
someone in the office who has a complete knowledge of all aspects of the crimi-
nal justice system. .With the challenges that our county is facing, I feel as though
Bobby Schultz is the candidate most capable of leading our law enforcement
professionals. Bobby Schultz is a product of our Gilchrist County community
and of our school system, having graduated from Bell High School in 1988.
Having worked for the Trenton Police Department and the Gilchrist County
Sheriffs Office both part-time and full-time for
20 years, and retiring in 1998, 1 am aware of ib E


the duties and great responsibilities that is
required of a sheriff. It is my belief that Bobby
Schultz possesses the experience and the
knowledge necessary for fulfilling the duties of
Sheriff, most effectively and efficiently.
Poladv.pd for by Doug Berich and approved by Robert (Bobby) Schultz Democrat for Sheriff.
