More increases on the


way for Trenton water


and sewer customers


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Trenton City Commissioners voted
to make additional increases on.the
fees charged for water and sewer
at the October 9 regular monthly
meeting.
City Manager Taylor Brown
recommended at a September meeting
that the base rates, connection
fees and deposit fees should all be
increased since they have not been
increased since 2007. Brown told
commissioners that those rates have
not increased to keep up with the
GPI. He went back and calculated the
increase for all past years since 2007
and came up with the increased rates.
He suggested that these increases
were past due and should be made at
this time.
The commissioners took a month to
review their concerns and came back
and passed the increases at their first
October meeting, with the exception
of Commissioner Arlene Wilks who
did not attend the meeting.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey was

late to the meeting and Commissioner
Marcia Hellams left the meeting
early.

will increase from $150.00 to $200.00
for new customers. This deposit will
be returned to the customer after
five consecutive years of service.
Commercial deposits for water and
sewer will now be $300.00 instead of
$250.00.
All new water connections shall
be assessed at $725.00 instead of
$600.00 and sewer shall also increase
to $725.00 for all new connections,
it was $600.00 per connection. There
will also be a $48.00 turn on charge,
it was $40.00 in the past to turn-on
the city-owned services.
The base rate for residential water
works utility customers will increase
from $12.16 to $14.41. Commercial
I customers, those using an average
of less than 12,000 gallons per
month, will have a base rate increase
from $18.26 to $21.64 per month.
Commercial II customers, those
using an average of more than 12,000
gallons per month, shall see a base
rate increase to $57.64, the rate was
$48,62.
The base rates for sewer will
also be increasing across the board.
Residential customers of Trenton's
sewer system will be paying a base
rate of $15.32 per month, the former
base rate was $12.93 per month.
Gallons used goes up from $3.85
per 1,000 gallons to $4.55 per 1,000
gallons of water used.
Commercial sewer customers
will also be seeing increases on
their sewer services. Commercial
I customers will pay a base rate of
$23.14 and $4.55 per 1,000 gallons
of water used. These rates formerly
were $19.53 for base rate and $3.85
per 1,000 gallons of water used.
Commercial II customers will pay
a base rate of $62.97 monthly and
$4.55 per 1,000 gallons used, the past
rates were $51.70 base rate and $3.85
per 1,000 gallons used.
The City Manager Taylor Brown
expressed his concerns about the
aged utility systems and the roads
in Trenton needing work. Brown
reminded the commission that at this
time the City of Trenton has not been
putting funds aside to make these
improvements or to update the water
and sewer system.
Another item on the October 9,
meeting agenda drew some interest
from the northwest section of the
city. A stop sign was to be placed
on NW 5th Avenue and 3rd Street
until several residents came forward
questioning the need for the sign.

On November 12, 2012, at the
Veteran's Day Parade, the cheerlead-
ers will have a Send Cheer to our He-
roes site. Members of our commu-
nity are invited to come by the site,
submit the name and address of their
hometown military member, write a
"Dear Hero" message to be sent in a
care package, drop off supplies, and/
or donate to cover costs. We will be
packing the boxes with the supplies


and messages, sealing them, and ad-
dressing them. Finally, we will mail'
them off to our hometown heroes!
There are two ways you can help.
1. The cost of sending each box
will range from $11.35 (stateside) to
$13.45 (APO/FPO). Donations to
help cover that cost are very impor-
tant and will be greatly appreciated!
2. A donation of supplies to fill the
boxes is also another way to help.


Over 500 absentee


ballots returned


By Carrie A. Mizell
After mailing out 1,600 absentee
ballots on October 1, the Gilchrist
County Supervisor of' Elections
Office has already received over
500 ballots back.
"We're hoping to have an 80
percent voter turnout in the General
Election," said Tracy Ridgeway,
assistant supervisor of elections.
Registration books closed last
week for the General Election. Prior
to the closing, Ridgeway indicated
that 77 citizens had registered to
vote, submitted party changes or
address changes since October 1.
According to Ridgeway, the
Supervisor of Elections Office
receives some 30.absentee ballots
in the mail each day. After filling
out the absentee ballot, registered
voters can hand deliver the two
page ballot, in its secrecy sleeve,
contained in the voter certificate
envelope to the Supervisor of
Elections Office or mail'itin. If a
voter opts to mail their ballot it, the


Supervisor of Elections would like
to remind voters that return postage
on all absentee ballots is .65 cents.
Voters who have already mailed
back their absentee ballots with
just one stamp on the envelope
should not worry that their ballots
did not make it to the Supervisor
of Elections Office. Ridgeway
explained that the Supervisor of
Elections Office is paying the
difference in postage through
an arrangement worked out the
Trenton Post Office.
The money to cover the additional
postage is reportedly coming out
of the. Supervisor of Elections
budget.
"Because we're getting about
30 absentee ballots back each
day, we're having to pay around
.20 cents per ballot in postage,"
Ridgeway explained. "We want
everyone to know that even if you
only put one stamp on your ballot
envelope, we are getting it and
your vote will be counted."

Code violator given 5


months to pay $5,000


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
met Monday afternoon in their mid-
month meeting at 4 p.m. Commission
chairman Tommy Langford adjusted
the agenda to allow Jerome White to
address the board involving a balance
he owes Gilchrist County involving a
number of code violations from past
years.
In March 2012, Jerome White came
before the Commission to request
assistance from the county involving
numerous code violations on property-
near Bell. The years of violations
involving trash, unlicensed vehicles
coupled with numerous complaints
made by neighboring property
owners involved fines totaling over
$25,000. The Commission gave
White one year to pay a reduced fine
of $5,000 or the county would revert
back to the $25,000 original fine and
collective action would begin by the
county to deal with this violator.
White addressed the Commission
on Monday to explain that due to two
deaths in his family and other needs,
he didn't have any money to pay'the
county on the $5,000 fine that is due
in March 2013.
Commissioner Randy Durden
explained that Gilchrist County has


given the Bell area resident time to
come up with a portion of the $5,000
fine. "I'm not in favor of reducing the
fine any lower at this time," Durden
explained.
White told the Commission that he
had no money at this time to pay on
the fine. Lori White told the board
that they were struggling to save
some money to pay on the fine.
The Commission discussed that the
County Administrator's office could
take partial payments and monthly
payments on the fine that is due March
2013. The County Administrator
asked White if he knew that the
County Administrator's office is in
the Building Department facility.
The County Administrator stipulated
that if White is going to begin make
payments, that he pay in the office
with cashier's check or money orders.
The County Administrator's Office
would not accept payments by cash.
The Commission explained that
White needed to make a diligent
effort to pay off the fine between now
and March 2013. The board warned if
he has not made a good faith effort by
March 2013, then Gilchrist County
will be forced to take other actions
when the Code Enforcement issue
comes up at the time the fine is due.

/OOt/i 6-tea

Gilchrist County resident Ethel Baker recently celebrated her 100t
day. Ms. Baker got a surprise visit on her birthday, from her sister M
Turner who lives in Rochester, New York, and will turn 105 herself
cember. When asked what they attributed their long lives to, the sis
plained that they did not eat sweets, like candy, when they were grow
Instead, they ate fresh potatoes, apples and greens (dandelions). The
worked hard growing up on a farm in Elm Valley, New York, and spe
of time together as a family, playing instruments and attending neighb
gatherings. Back then there was no Twitter, of Facebook, in fact, the
no computers period! Time was spent outdoors fellowshipping with
other.

Our grand- .
son, Whitt .. .
turned 1 on
Tuesday. Whitt -
and family ,
celebrated his
first birthday
on Saturday f
afternoon in
h birth- the middle of #
[adeline
adelinea ,cow pasture
fin De- under a large
ters ex- live oak. The
ving up. birthday theme
ladies was Cowboy
ent a lot which fits
iorhood our little, or 1
re were should say big
one an- boy's bigger
than life per-
sonality.
To say
that Whitt is
"something"
is an under-
statement. His
"Wild, Wild
Whitt" birth-
day fit just
right because
he is rough and
tough just like a cowboy. Right now,
cows seem to be his favorite animals.
It's funny in some ways that he has
just turned 1 because he has always
thought of himself as pretty much
grown.
Around here, at MeMe and Pap's
house, Whitt goes by many nick-
names including, Rank, Bruiser, Big
Dog, and Trouble, just to name a few.
Believe me, all the nicknames fit.
You see, our boy is tough as a cob
and convinced he is just as big as
his 4-year-old sister, Allie and his 3-
year-old cousin, Gus. He loves noth-
ing better than to get right up in the
middle of whatever they are doing.
Nothing makes him happier than
busting up whatever game they are
playing. i
He is a bit Dennis the Menace and


Whitt Mizell


a bit Angel (mostly when he is sleep-
ing).
Ol' Whitt has big blue eyes, like his
mother and blonde hair that tends to
stick out and up from time to time.
Those blue, blue eyes twinkle with
mischief and foolishness and he
makes the funniest clown faces ever.
Whitt is tall for his age and has
a great reach, which allows him to
sweep any and all items from tables
throughout the house. At this age he
is sort of a one-man wrecking crew.
Our boy spends two days a week
here at the house with Gus and I and
we both agree we miss him so much
when he is not here. Gus and Whitt
are big buddies and they play togeth-
er so well. Big boy cousins who have
toy tractors are hard to beatwihen you
are 1.


Can you tell I'm just wild about
him? Well, I am, he has MeMe hook,
line, and sinker. The fact is, I adore
him.
My grandmother used to say, "I al-
ways have room in my heart for just
one more grand baby," no matter how
many she already had. Now I truly
understand how she felt as they are
all so special in their own way. The
Lord has truly blessed us with Whit-
ter-Ditter.
The following recipe is perfect as
we are approaching Halloween and
I know many people have pumpkin
parties planned for their children.
These Pumpkin Whoopie Pies are
Whitt-approved and make a great
snack for young and old alike.
When I made them for our grand-
children I wrapped each one individ-
ually in plastic wrap and stored them
in the fridge until someone needs a
snack.

College Graduation Data


Q s o fo t cp **i


e **


Gilchrist County students need a strong emphasis on Career and Technical programs. Census bureau data indicate
that Gilchrist County graduates earn a Bachelor's degree at a rate far below state average (8% vs 26%). This
means that we need to not only focus on strategies to support students entering postsecondary education, but we also
need to provide more options for students in Career and Technical programs so that they can graduate with a
certification or the skills needed to enter the workforce. We currently offer programs in business, health, agriculture, construction, and engineering. We need to expand our
program options to include industries such as auto mechanics, medical transcription, and welding. Students who graduate from programs like these are 39% more likely to
attend college, and on average, earn between $4,000-$19,000 more per year than a student with an Associate's degree. Students in these programs graduate at a higher rate,
dropout less, are more likely to attend college, and are more likely to stay in college through completion of a degree. Research supports the need for a strong focus on Career
and Technical programs. We can provide the avenues for students to learn valuable skills that will prepare them for the workforce through the collaboration of school and
community members.
Our goal is to PREPARE students. Sometimes that means that we need to prepare them to be ready for college. Sometimes, however,this means that we need to prepare them
to enter the workforce and earn high wages through the marketable skills that they have developed in our school systemWe need to be realistic all students are not the same.
Not every family has the resources to support a child in college. Not every child would thrive in that environment. For many students,the education we provide will be the only
education they receive. We have to be cognizant of that,and ensure that these students are just as prepared for success as the students that will be attending college.

Todd Newton (R)


The Clerk of Court is a constitu-
tional office that serves the public
in many capacities, one being to
maintain the checks and balances
of government. What does that
mean to you?
As the elected watchdog of County
government finances, the Clerk pro-
vides checks and balances through
unbiased accounting and auditing of
the public's funds. As a fiscal con-
servative I will ensure that your tax
dollars are managed appropriately.

With technology changing rapidly
what changes do you envision for
the Clerk's Office in the following
areas: courts, finance and record-
ing?
The use of automation and tech-
nology is making many government
functions more accessible and more
convenient for citizens to use. I will
be diligent in finding ways to make
the Clerk's office work more effi-
ciently for the citizens of our county,
while trying to save taxpayer's mon-
ey.
The Clerk's office has just recently
upgraded to CLERICUS. CLERI-
CUS, is a Florida-based case mainte-
nance system developed exclusively
for Florida Clerks by Florida Clerks.
Updates to the system are provided
with input from local clerks offices.
CLERICUS has provided a.state-of-
the-art upgrade to the existing case
maintenance applications. It is the
newest version of the court case sys-
tem which is currently implemented
in thirty-six counties in the state of
Florida.
E-filing is currently being phased
in with the court system. If elected,
I will be encouraging attorneys to be
early adopters of this new electronic
filing system. E-File will save liti-


Todd Newton


gants time and money, and will also
significantly reduce the costs of pa-
per and storage for the clerk's office.
In addition to the cost savings, it will
lead to increased timeliness in the
processing of cases and improved ju-
dicial case management.
In the Finance area there has also
been new system upgrades ihat will
make the Clerk's office more effi-
cient going forward. eFinance PLUS
is an enterprise-wide financial and
hunan resource management system
that should meet the requirements
of our county for the foreseeable fu-
ture. My intent will be to utilize the
CLERICUS and eFinance systems as
I believe they will be proficient and I
do not see the need to create any ad-
ditional expense.

The Clerk's Office is responsible
for collecting all fines, fees and ser-
vice charges assessed by the courts.
In today's economy how do you

The Blind Spies
(Kent Heaton)


Twelve men walked the length of Canaan for forty days
Spying the cities, the land and the people. They witnessed a
place of great beauty and produce. One cluster of grapes
had to be carried on a pole between two men. The land
impressed them as a land that "flows with milk and
Shone" (Numbers 13:27). What troubled the hearts of most
of the spies were the people that lived in this place of
bounty. Of the twelve men sent to spy the land, ten feared
the strength of the cities and the people. The cities seemed
impregnable. The descendants of Anak (giants) filled the
land. The ten spies reported they felt like grasshoppers in
the sight of the people. By their words they discouraged
the people of Israel (Numbers 13:28-29, 31-33).
Joshua and Caleb were the only spies who believed the
land could be conquered. They begged the people to reject
the counsel of the ten spies and go at once to take
possession of the land (Numbers 13:30). With God's power
they did not need to fear the people because the Lord
would fight for them. The seeds of doubt had settled in the
hearts of the people and they refused to listen (Numbers
14:1-4). For their rebellion.Jehovah God caused the people
of Israel to wander in the' wilderness for forty years
(Numbers 14:34).
Why did ten men see fear and two men see victory? The
ten spies did not see what Joshua and Caleb saw. Their
hearts were blinded by what they saw with their eyes rather
than what they could see with God's power. Moses had
instructed the twelve to see how strong the people were
and how difficult the cities would be to conquer (Numbers
13:17-20). The twelve spies were leaders among the people
yet ten were blinded to the things that had witnessed in the


past few months.

The new E-File system allows at-

The phrase "Being A Good Stew-
ard of the Citizens' Money" has
been used often. As chief financial
officer and county budget officer
for all departments, how will you
carry out those duties?
As CFO, I will monitor the County
budget, revenue, debt and spending.
As County Auditor, I will be respon-
sible for auditing County expendi-
tures to ensure that it serves a public
purpose. I will ensure that my office
maintains an accurate and complete
set of financial records in order to
produce all required financial state-
ments and reports to comply with
state and federal laws and generally
accepted accounting principles. As
Treasurer, I will invest and earn in-
terest income on County funds to re-
duce the tax burden on the residents
of Gilchrist County. Financial trans-
parency and accountability to the
citizens of Gilchrist will be a priority
for my office.

The Clerk of Court also serves as
the clerk to the Board of County
Commissioners. How do you view
this relationship and its responsi-
bilities?
As Clerk to the Board I believe it
is important to understand that the
Clerk has no voting authority, but is
responsible to the people in ensuring
that County funds are spent accord-
ing to law. I will always make my-
self available to the Board to provide
guidance when called upon.

Had they forgotten the power of God in


Egypt when the Lord brought the plagues upon Pharaoh?
How could anyone fail to remember the crossing at the Red
Sea? If the Lord was victorious over the nation of Egypt
how difficult would it be to conquer this new land?
Joshua and Caleb saw the same giants and fortified cites
the ten spies saw but they viewed them as weak because
they knew what God could do. "If the Lord delights in us,
then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, 'a
land which flows with milk and honey.' Only do not rebel
against the Lord, nor fear the people of the land, finor they
are our bread; their protection has departed from them,
and the Lord is with us. Do not fear them" (Numbers
14:8-9).
We can be like the ten spies when we fail to see how God
can work in our lives. The giants of doubt and fear will
stand before us and we shrink back with worry and fear not
believing that we can overcome. Paul reminds us that
nothing is impossible for us if we trust in God. "I can do all
things through Christ who strengthens me ... What then
shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be
against us? ... Who shall separate us fronmthe love of
Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or
famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? ... in all these
things we are more than conquerors through Him who
loved us. For I ant persuaded that neither death nor life,
nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things
present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor arny
other created thing, shall be able to separate us front the
love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord"
(Philippians 4:13; Romans 8:31, 35, 37-39).

Susan Owens (D)


The Clerk of Court is a constitu-
tional office that serves the public
in many capacities, one being to
maintain the checks and balances
of government. What does that
mean to you?
There are many areas where the
Clerk is responsible for maintaining
the checks and balances. The Clerk's
office must be sure that the taxpayer
dollars are spent according to the law
and also that the expenditures meet
the Board of County Commission-
ers established rules and procedures.
They must also meet the auditor's
guidelines. Not only does the Clerk's
office maintain the County's budget,
but also all purchase orders as well as
expenditures by the Board of County
Commissioners departments need to
follow the guidelines established by
the BOCC. The Clerk's office needs
to ensure that proprietary funds are
kept separate from other funds. The
Clerk's office should give updated
reports to the BOCC and department
supervisors to ensure that budgets are
not over spent.

With technology changing rapidly
what changes do you envision for
the Clerk's Office in the following
areas: courts, finance and record-
ing?
Court functions will continue to
be updated on the technology side
by working with the County Court
Judge and the Chief Judge along with
the court's staff to meet the needs of
the judicial system. Some of those
technology updates will depend on
funding sources that are available
and should not be mandated as a cost
to the local taxpayers.
As far as updating the finance tech-
nology, this is a continuing process
with the cost for the Court side the
responsibility of the state and the cost
on the Board's side the responsibility
of the Board of County Commission-
ers.
The recording technology will
need to be updated as new technolo-
gy is made available, but keeping the
cost to the taxpayer at a minimum.
The Clerk of Court website needs to
be updated and made user friendly
including a help section and down-
loadable forms.

The Clerk's Office is responsible
for collecting all fines, fees and ser-
vice charges assessed by the courts.
In today's economy how do you
feel and propose to fulfill that re-
sponsibility?
The collecting of fines, fees and
service charges is one of the Clerk's
offices constitutional responsibilities.
The funding for the personnel and
other expenditures for these duties is
funded through the amount collected
and a formula for funding established
through the legislature, the Judicial
and the Clerks associated. This fund-
ing is subject to change each year
during the Legislative process and
will be a continuing balancing act by
the local Clerk's office.

The phrase "Being A Good Stew-
ard of the Citizens' Money" has
been used often. As chief financial
officer and county budget officer
for all departments, how will you
carry out those duties?
If I am elected Clerk, as the Con-
stitutional Officer, I must submit the
Clerk's Budget to the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners for approval like
all other Constitutional Officers and
1 will operate the office with the tax-
payer in mind. As for the Board of
County Commissioners departments,
the spending and budget decisions are
the Board of County Commissioners'
decision to make.


Susan Owens


The Clerk's job is to make sure
those decisions are carried out ac-
cording to law and meet all the BOCC
guidelines and procedures.


I


The Clerk of Court also serves as
the clerk to the Board of County
Commissioners. How do you view
this relationship and its responsi-
bilities?
As the Clerk, it would be my re-
sponsibility to the Board of County
Commissioners for keeping accurate
minutes and keeping the Board ad-
vised as to the financial state of the
county.
The Clerk acts as an advisor to fi-
nancial matters and works with the
Board of County Commissioners to
make sure that the taxpayer gets the
most for their tax dollars that are
spent, always remembering that the
final budget and the expenditures dur-
ing the year is the Board of County
Commissioners' ultimate responsibil-
ity, as long as those expenditures are
spent according to the law and meets
the Board of County Commissioners
guidelines and procedures.

Gilchrist County Citizens:
I would like to say a few words about Barbara Merritt, who
is running for Tax 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
Bell Concrete Products

to the Editor

Vice Presidental


Broadband tower Debate


1 agree with the decision of the
Gilchrist County Commissioners to
not donate tower space to the North
Florida Broadband Authority. Instead
a fair lease price was offered. As-
sets that the county owns, whatever
they are, should be used to increase
revenue for the benefit of the county
residents.
The lease money to the county
could perhaps have been used to as-
sist the road department with the ever
increasing price of fuel, or perhaps,
get better trailers for the solid waste
department. Also, a special fund
could be set up for emergency use.
Government should be seeking
ways to increase revenue through ev-
ery means possible before looking at
the tax payer.
My thanks to Commissioners Ran-
dy Durden, Sharon Langford, and
Kendrick Thomas for looking after
us.

Vice President Joe Biden shares a
common trait with his boss Barack
Obama and former President Bill
Clinton. All three play fast and loose
with the truth and all lack the ability
to distinguish between fact and fic-
tion. This was very clearly demon-
strated by Mr. Biden in recent debate
with Paul Ryan. Joe Biden's history
of lying and embellishing the truth,
regarding his background and ac-
complishments, have been well docu-
mented and deserves no further scru-
tiny. I listened with amusement when
Mr. Biden recited his "folksy" recol-
lections about certain conversations
he had with his father which always
started with "Joey" this and "Joey"
that. I wonder what "folksy" advice
his father gave him when "Joey" was
caught cheating at Syracuse Univer-
sity School of Law?
One thing we know for sure, his fa-
ther did not instruct "Joey" in the art
of good manners.

(Ret.) SHERIFF JIM FLOYD ENDORSES
ROBERT (Bobby) SCHULTZ
FOR GILCHRIST COUNTY SHERIFF


I would like to endorse Bobby Schultz for sheriff of Gilchrist County.
Bobby started his career with the Gilchrist County Sheriff.s Office in 1992 as a
dispatcher/jailer/reserve deputy, when I was sheriff. Since that time, Bobby has established a
well-rounded and highly-successful career in the criminal justice system that uniquely qualifies
him for the office of sheriff. Along with patrol and investigative experience, Bobby has been a
law enforcement supervisor, an investigator for both the State Attorney's Office and Public
Defender's Office, and international experience training/mentoring Police in Afghanistan
during Operation Enduring Freedom.
Bobby is a good Christian man and has remained humble throughout his life. 1 believe he will
be easy to talk to and accessible when needed by the citizens of the county. He is not retired,
and that assures me that he will be accountable.
There are many law enforcement issues facing our county that could be devastating for
individuals if not handled correctly. I have spent hours talking to Bobby about his vision of how
and where he wants to lead the Sheriff's Office when elected, and I trust and believe in him.
I believe that Bobby's experience in many areas of the criminal justice system makes him the
most qualified candidate for sheriff.


Remember, a man of faith understands the
most important aspects of life are Faith, Love,
and Charity. Bobby exemplifies these attri-
butes.
Please join me in voting for Robert (Bobby)
Schultz for Sheriff on November 6th.

Retired Sheriff of Gilchrist County

Tigers' defense issues statement in big win


over Dixie County on Friday night


By John M. Ayers
"This was a statement game you
guys made here tonight in the 33-6
victory over Dixie County," Coach
Andrew Thomas told his Tigers as
they kneeled at the center of the field
following the victory. "The Tigers'
Defense gets this game ball tonight
as they shut out the Bears' offense in
this game," added Coach Thomas.
The Tigers' victory over the Dixie
Bears was signified that the No. 1 Ti-
gers are for real and they are worthy
of this top spot ranking in the Associ-
ated Press IA division of the Florida
High School Poll.
The Bears won the opening flip of
the coin toss and decided to give the
Tigers the football; that was their first
mistake. Trenton's Steven Smith led
a hungry offense down the field and
capitalized on a Cedric Stokes 5 yard
burst into the end zone for the score.
Stokes scored on the Tigers' next
possession on a short sprint from
scrimmage. The Tigers went up 18-0
on a Steven Smith to Stokes pass for
a score.
This game was packed with loads
of hard hits that resulted in both teams
fumbling the ball away in this classic
game. Trenton's Jacquez Powell and
Tyler Sauls each recorded fumble re-
coveries. The Tigers' defense forced
six Dixie County fumbles. The
Bears' Duke Dawson picked up a Ti-
ger fumble in the second period and
out ran the Tigers' 35 yards for Dixie
County's only score.
In the closing minutes of the sec-
ond quarter the Tigers capitalized on
Hamp Cheevers breaking the Bears'
pass defense as he pulled in a 45
yard aerial from Smith for the score.
Smith located Stokes in the end zone
for a 2-point conversion as the Ti-
gers went up 26-6 at halftime. At this
point the Tigers were beginning to
etch this game into the history book
as the Bears' frustrations were begin-
ning to appear.
In the third quarter the Bears were

threatening as they were down inside
the Tigers' 20-yard line. The Tigers'
defense meant to keep the Bears out
of the end zone as a loose ball squirt-
ed out into the pile. The Tigers' of-
fense again took over from that point
to drive the field. With 9:06 remain-
ing in the third period, Cedric Stokes
bruised the Bears' defense on a 15-
yard run for his fourth score of the
game. Michael Smith added the extra
point kick for the Tigers 33-6 lead.
Hunter Parrish led a strong Tiger
defense that kept the Bears' offense
intact in the second half. The Tigers
forced the Bears into numerous third
down and long plays and the Tigers'
defensive backs Cedric Stokes and


Hamp Cheevers were on top of these
plays to intercept the pass attempts.
Parrish recorded three sacks of the
Bears' quarterbacks as they restricted
their opponents' offense to 131 yards.
Dawson and Mitchell completed 5 of
10 passes for 39 yards. The Bears had
six running backs that rushed 29 times
for a total of 92 yards. The Bears had
averaged 26.3 points on their oppo-
nents in each games this season.
The Tigers' had an outstanding
team effort in this game. Stokes had
5 solo tackles as he continued to fight
cramps through the battle. Jacquez
Powell had 7 total tackles and Hunter
Parrish recorded 8 tackles. Breon
Sims had 7 tackles and teammates

TO SERVE AND PROTECT *

What makes a great Sheriff? Who is the best candidate to be the next Sheriff of Gilchrist County?
Who is honest? Who is more knowledgable? Who is more experienced? Who has true integrity for
the job? Who can I trust with the lives of my grandchildren? Who will deidicate his life protecting
me, my family and my property? Who is in the Sheriff's race for a paycheck and who is in it
because they want to spend their life making mine a little easier and safer? Who can do the job
right and earn the public's trust? Whose efforts will make our county a better place to live and raise
our families? Who can I trust with my tax dollars? These are questions that have been discussed
many times, by many people, during the past months in Gilchrist County.
I am just another concerned citizen of Gilchrist County who has to base my vote on what I know
to be fact and also what both candidates have expressed themselves to be. There is one difference
in myself and other voters in Gilchrist County though, that is, "Iam the only voter that has worked
closely with bbth Sheriff candidates. "
I will not discuss weaknesses for the sake of not personally attacking either candidate, but I will
state my opinion as an honest and concerned tax-paxing citizen. As a Republican who dares to
cross party lines for the sole purpose of ensuring the safety of my loved ones and the protection of
my property, I am voting for Bobby Schultz to be the next Sheriff of Gilchrist County. In my opin-
ion, Bobby is overwhelmingly the most qualified to be the next Sheriff because of his broad expe-
rience in law enforcement operations, his vast knowledge of the law and how to apply it, his vast
knowledge of the judicial system, his prior experience as a business owner and his true love for
serving people. 1 have known Bobby for over 17 years and have never seen him stray from doing
the right thing, every time. He is an honest, hardworking professional law man who will be a "gift"
to the citizens of Gilchrist County when elected Sheriff. IN MY HUMBLE AND HONEST OPIN-
ION, BOBBY SCHULTZ IS THE RIGHT CHOICE TO BE THE NEXT SHERIFF OF
GILCHRIST COUNTY. PLEASE VOTE ON NOVEMBER 6.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Oct. 11, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Work was done on both of
the quilts in frames and plans for the
Quilt Show after Thanksgiving were
discussed. Someone left a bag of
material on the front porch over the
weekend, thank you very much! We
use some of the donated fabric and
other items to make items for the Mu-
seum sales which keep the Museum
running. It was a lucky week for us
and several small boxes were also
brought in during the week.
Pat G. made a couple of brackets to
hang quilts by Loraine Stone that she
made in 1991, Mary Brookins' Dres-
den Plate quilt and one of Winnelle's
quits in the Quilt Room. These
should be hung in time for the Quilt
Show.
We are open Tuesday through Sat-
urday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. We are
located at 10391 NW 10th Ave which
is between Bronson and Chiefland.

Green thumbs grow a fall garden


Geneva Cornwell, Mary Jo English and Bianca Pope
By Angie Rexroat,
The sweet smell of fall is among us, and as we began to weed our summe
flower beds we at Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Center were blessed wit
a volunteer that took that job by the reins and rode it full swing back to life
Mrs. Geneva Cornwell came a knocking and we were quick to put her tc
work! She corralled an excited group of green-thumbed residents to map ou
a schematic of the new plan for the fall garden, with a ground collard bed i
their minds. That was only week one! They then planned to meet every wee
for the next few weeks to plant and plow and water, then of course pick an
eat! During the week the seeds and plants they chose were purchased and th
collard bed was built, and on that Thursday all of those green-thumbed girl
strolled of out to put their plan to work! That was weeks ago. and we now
have tiny blooms and little sprouts! We are all so proud and surely could no
have made it possibly without one Geneva Cornwell! We will be sure to kee
you all updated on our garden's progress! If you are interested in becoming
volunteer at Ayers, please contact Carmen Law or Angie Rexroat at 463-710
ext 117. Also, don't forget Ayers Safe Place to Trick or Treat, October 30
2012, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.!

Neighbors helping Neighbors


By Rick Weder
For the past 15 years running the
food pantry has been a very big chal-
lenge, but it has also been a rewarding
one and I want to thank the residents
of Gilchrist County for allowing me
to establish a food pantry to serve our
neighbors.
1 would not have been able to get
the food pantry to where it is. today
without the help of the residents of
this wonderful county and without
the help of the Journal.
You have been very generous to the
food pantry by giving us the space to
announce the food distributions and I
thank you for that.
The residents of this county have
been very supportive of the food pan-
try as have been the County Commis-
sioners and the city of Trenton. Their
assistance has been instrumental in
us being as being able to grow as big
as we have.
To all the business owners and to
the individuals who have assisted us,
SI thank you because you are a very
important part.of the operation.
The person I have chosen to be the
Director is Richard (Rick) Clark. He
is a Gilchrist County resident who,
along with his wife, has volunteered
at the food pantry for some time and
have both done an excellent job.
I know that Rick will do a good job
and I ask that those who supported
me also support him as he has a big
task ahead of him.

Anyone still thinking on the $ 1,440
dollars we talked about last week?
Or, more importantly, how about the
gift of those 1,440 minutes we re-
ceive each day? Recall with me that
time is the ultimate non-renewable
resource, because no matter how we
try, once time has passed we simply
cannot get it back.
Last week we discussed the im-
portance of making a list of our pri-
orities, as well as setting goals for ac-
complishing what is important to us.
I hope you have taken a few minutes
this week to think on these things. It
matters that we do this every so of-
ten because the seasons of our lives
change and so do our circumstances.
In this season of my life, finding time
to spend with my family is often a
challenge because we are all busy go-
ing in different directions. With one
Sson married and a family of his own,
another newly graduated from col-
lege and pursuing a career in another
city, a daughter in high school and
another in middle school, we have
to be intentional'about spending time
together. Because it is often difficult,
we have to make it a priority! Re-
minding yourself regularly of what is
important will help you find time in
the midst of busy days.
Next, we need to create a flex-
ible, yet realistic schedule. We often
complain, "I just don't have enough
hours in the day!" Perhaps our prob-
lem is not that we don't have enough
time, but that our time is not being
used effectively. As you consider
your schedule, consider the amount
of time spent on your daily commit-
ments. Are there too many obliga-
tions for you to accomplish them all
well? Are there some activities that
need to be reconsidered or dropped
completely? Next, evaluate the
amount of time that can be dedicated
to your priority list. Relationships
and recreation are important aspects
of life that we may need to write into


4/1&ftfa
gie Land
our schedule if we don't seem I
enough time. Above all, a re
schedule must be flexible becal
never know what a day may
and if our schedule is too rig
will get discouraged and give u
ing to have a plan.
Finally, resist the urge to pro
nate. According to Webster's di
ary, the word procrastinate mea
put off; delay." It is a natural te
cy to avoid things that we don't
However, delaying tasks only
them to multiply as other one
to the list. Then, we find our
with way too many things to d
not nearly enough time to cor
them. Moreover, if all we ar
to do is "get them done" some
probably do not reflect our be
forts. Being reminded of your 1
ties and creating a workable scl
can help you curb the temptat
procrastinate.
One suggestion if you knov
crastinating is a problem for )
to give yourself deadlines th.
considerably earlier than the
deadline. This can help put the
sure on to complete a task anc
a little extra time if absolutely
essary. Another idea is to reco
there are times that you just a
in the mood to tackle certain
However, you can still stay on
if you use that time to accord
another goal on your list that
clear some time later, this will
your schedule flexible and yo
perform your tasks well.
Because most of us live at a
busy pace, making the most of
moment ensures that we can
the things we have to do. Mor
portantly, it also allows us the
to spend on what is important,
things that we want to do. So,
will you do with your gift of
minutes today?

On September 25, 2012, the Su-
wannee River Water Management
District (District) Governing Board
adopted a Fiscal Year 2012-13 bud-
get of $16.1 million. Maintaining the
same millage rate of 0.4143 as last
year means that a homeowner with
a property value of $150,000 with a
$50,000 homestead exemption Would
pay $41.43 in property taxes to the
District. With taxable property values
declining by 2 percent, the District's
village rate will reduce taxpayers'
burden by approximately $280,000.
"The District is pleased to present
a budget that enables the District to
protect our water resources for the
benefit of our citizens and natural
systems while lessening the burden
on taxpayers and establishing a high
level of public service," said District
Executive Director Ann Shortelle.
"The final budget documents our ded-
ication to implement cost efficiencies
and enhance existing programs."
The District budget establishes
two cost-share programs totaling $3
million. One cost-share program will
set aside $1.5 million to partner with
farmers to reduce groundwater use
and to put in place best management
practices to reduce nutrient loading to
water resources. The other cost-share
program will establish $15 million to
partner with public water suppliers
to develop alternative water supply
projects to offset groundwater with-
drawals, protect springs, build flood
protection projects, improve water
quality, and to enhance our natural
systems.
The budget is fiscally responsible
and supports the agency's core mis-
sion of water supply, water qual-
ity, flood protection, and natural sys-
tems.
Key core mission projects in the
budget include:
More than $2.2 million to establish
Minimum Flows and Levels on the
Upper and Middle Suwannee River
and three Bradford County Lakes
(Sampson, Crosby, and Rowell).
Santa Fe River Nutrient Reduc-
tion and Irrigation Retrofit Project
is a partnership with $900,000 from
DEP, $180,000 from the District,
and $50,000 from the Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The project will enthance water sup-
plies through water conservation and
protect natural systems by reducing
nitrogen loading to streams and aqui-
fers by up to 1 million pounds per
year and save 670 million gallons of
water per year.
Upper Floridan Aquifer Recharge
Project is a $265,000 partnership
project between the SRWMD and
SJRWMD, through the North Florida
Regional Water Supply Partnership
to develop concepts for recharging
the Upper Floridan Aquifer.
Alligator Creek Restoration Proj-
ect located in Bradford County is
a partnership with the Florida Fish
& Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) to construct a sediment
control structure and reconnect a
portion of the creek to its historic
floodplain. The project will protect
natural systems, Lake Rowell in
particular, by capturing 169 tons per
year of sediment, provide flood con-
trol benefits by directing water into
the historic floodplain, and restore
31 acres of wetlands. The project in-
vests $250,000 from FWC and up to
$350,000 from the District.
Bell Springs Restoration Project


located in Columbia County is a part-
nership with the FWC to remove dams
within a spring run on District lands.
FWC is investing $55,000 through a
grant to the District to improve natu-
ral systems by restoring natural flows
of water through the spring run and
downstream to the adjacent Suwan-
nee River.
Steinhatchee Rise Dispersed Wa-
ter Storage Project located in Dixie
County is an environmental restora-
tion project enhancing natural sys-
tems and flood control by placing
water diversion structures in a canal
on District lands that is currently
draining wetlands directly to the
Steinhatchee River. This is a $20,000
project that will disperse 8.3 million
gallons of water, providing hydro-
logic restoration to approximately 50
acres of wetlands.
"The Governing Board is proud to
adopt a fiscally sound budget that ef-
ficiently and effectively implements
our core mission," said District Board
Chairman Don Quincey. "The budget
ensures the Board's commitment to
an exceptional level of customer ser-
vice while reducing the tax burden on
the taxpayer."
A copy of the budget is posted on
the District's Business and Financial
page at www.mysuwanneeriver.com..

Ted Henley told commissioners,
"I don't see a need for a stop sign,
I travel it every day of my life and I
don't see anyone speeding."
Commissioner Marcia Hellams
told Mr. Henley, "They speed down
by the park, they do speed really bad.
(There is) Concern about the children
playing in the area."
For a good part of this year,
Commissioner Hellams has been
requesting that a stop sign be added
at this site due to speeders. Hellams
has told the commissioners in the past
that this is the street that she lives on
and she sees the speeders often.
'Others who attended the meeting
also spoke up not in favor of this
additional stop sign.
The police chief was asked what his
suggestion was to slow down traffic
near the park and he suggested two
speed bumps. Chief Raven suggested
that one speed bump be placed 150
feet before the park and one speed
bump be placed 150 feet after the
park.
Everyone seemed to think the speed
bumps would be the best solution
including Commissioner Hellams.
Commissioner Hellams had voted no
earlier in the meeting on the motion
to put up the stop sign she had been
requesting.
Fanning Springs City
Council meeting date

The Fanning Springs City Council
has changed their November meeting
to Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 5
p.m.


Spring Ridge 4-H Club put up a Cat in the Hat scarecrow, along with a
book that reads: "Here's the beginning where this story starts, to make
a 4-Her you'll need 4 parts. The head is for thinking and thinking you
should if everyone did, Life would really be good. Heart is what's next,
Yes, it's true, Treat others with kindness and mercy, too. Our hands
are one way, others see our love, Be sure that you show it like the One
up above. Health is the last part, Right here at the end, Remember
this part and know that's true, Your health is better than wealth my
friend. We hope our rhyming you enjoyed at least a smidge. Thanks for
spending this moment with The Cat and Spring Ridge."


Lil'.Farmers 4-H Club showed a family of scarecrows taking care of a
pizk Pig:. '


I am proud to have the endorsement of the Teamsters Local 2011, the union
that represents many of this county's correctional officers. They have endorsed
me because I stand up for fair wages and for protecting earned benefits and
pensions, and believe that publicly-employed correctional officers should be
in charge of keeping our citizens safe.


Lawton Chiles believed that educating the next generation is the single most
important investment we can make in our future. If elected, I will advocate,
support, and vote for legislation that restores proper funding to our public
schools.

SIf elected, I will vote for legislation that empowers our Water Management
Districts to make decisions at the regional level for local interests, not those of
Tallahassee or South Florida.


X In 2012, Keith Perry voted to privatize Florida prisons. He voted in favor of
HB 7083 (2012) titled "Correctional Privatization." In September 2012, Peny
accepted the maximum possible campaign contribution from The Geo Group,
Inc., a South Florida corporation that operates private prisons. While Peny has
been in office (since November 2010), The Geo Group, Inc. has given the
Republican Party of Florida over $492,500 to further their prison privatization
agenda (see Florida Division of Elections).
l-X In 2011, Keith Peny voted in favor ofa $1.3 billion cut to K-12 classroom
spending, the largest funding cut in Florida public education history, and he failed
to restore full funding the next year. During his time in office, Perry also voted to
open additional tax loopholes and create benefits for big corporations and special
interests at the expense of our children (HB 7087, 2012).
[X In 2011, Keith Peny supported efforts to cut the salaries of 655,000 state and
county workers, including public school teachers and correctional officers, by
three percent (The Bradenton Herald, 03/24/2011).
