mb there at cancels school


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County schools were
closed on Wednesday, Dec. 19, after
Trenton Elementary School received
a letter in the mail containing a bomb
threat.
Law enforcement was immediately
notified, explained Ronda Parrish,
assistant superintendent, and bomb
sniffing dogs from the Alachua
County Sheriff's Office and the
University Police Department in
Gainesville were brought in to the


Trenton Elementary School campus
on Tuesday evening, Dec. 18, shortly
after the letter \was opened ba a
school official. The dogs continued
their search on Wednesday morning
in an effort to determine if the school
was secure.
Gilchrist Countr Administrator
Bobby Crosby confirmed at noon on
Wednesday that Trenton Elementarn
School had been cleared, but the dogs
and their handlers were going back to
Trenton High School on Wednesday


afternoon to finish the search and
make" sure a bomb was not found on
either Trenton campus.
According to Parrish, a decision to
cancel all Gilchrist County schools
on Wednesday, Dec. 19 was made
based on numerous reasons.
School resumed on Thursday, Dec.
20 and Friday. Dec. 21, with students
being dismissed at 1 p.m. each day.
The bomb scare came at a difficult
time. as the Sandy Hook Elementary
School shooting is still fresh on


everyone's mind.
Twenty children and six adult staff
members were fatally. shot at the
Newtown, Connecticut elementary
school on Dedemb6r 14, when 20-
year-old Adam Lanza forced his
way into the school and went on a
shooting rampage.
Last. week the Gilchrist County
Journal reported that the safety of the
students' attending Gilchrist County
Schools was on the forefront of
Superintendent Rob Rankin's mind


in light of the tragedy at Sandy Hook
Elementary School.
Rankin stated that the schools
were reviewing existing plans and
discussing how to respond in the
event a similar situation occurred in
one of the schools.
S"We take the safety of our students
and personnel seriously," Rankin said.
"We will always strive to maintain a
safe campus for our students, faculty
and staff. We know we are entrusted
with our county's, most prized


possession-our children."
According to Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter, the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office will be assisting the
Trenton Police Department with the
bomb threat investigation,
Robin Heath, of the Trenton
Police Department, said on Friday
that the letter and envelope sent to
Trentoni Elementary School has been
taken to the Florida Department of
Law Enforcement Crime Lab for
processing.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Well its all over, the tree is down,
the house is quiet and my sock clad
feet are propped up. I am still wear-
ing my fuzzy red, green and white
socks that sweet Stephanie Gore gave
me a few weeks ago.
Our family had a wonderful Christ-
mas, but to tell you the truth I needed
to just kick back on the couch for a
few hours to recoup after all our joy-
ous holiday festivities.
We began dining on seafood around
noon on Christmas Day, enjoying an
old fashioned oyster roast.
I remember the oyster roasts of
my childhood, which all took place
at our family hunting camp. My fa-
ther and Uncle Vance would throw
an old piece of rusty tin across the
red, hot coals of the campfire. Ev-
eryone would sit on whatever they
could drag around the fire including a
much favored faded old porch glider
and various tree stumps as well as a
worn out recliner or two. We would
just wait, listening- for the sizzle of
oyster juice hitting the hot tin, a sure.
sign that an oyster had popped open.
As the croker sack slowly emptied of
oysters and all the old familiar deer
tales were laughed over once again,
little did I know at the time what
sweet memories we were making. It
was a simpler time back then and kids
were general pretty happy just being
,kids. But, why wouldn'twe have been
happy, we were surrounded by aunts,
.uncles, brothers, sisters, grandmas,


grandpas and a mom and dad who all
loved us. Love in the life of a child is
a pretty powerful thing and we were
blessed to grow up around a campfire
surrounded by family.
After the seafood feast on Christ-
mas Day we opened a few presents
and of course our grandchildren, ages
4, 3 1 and 14 months had a grand
time, therefore we all had a great
time. It was truly a Christmas to re-
member.
What better way to relax after a
busy past few weeks than to make a
pot of hot cocoa. Now, I'll tell you up
front this recipe is rich and it makes a
lot. You can cut the recipe in half and
have enough for an entire family.
The recipe I tried suggested keeping
the cocoa hot at a party by serving it
out of a crock pot.
ZecaAOMt 5 b> 6eac0aw

1 1/2 cups whipping cream
14 oz. can sweetened condensed
milk
6 cups whole milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Stir all the ingredients together in
large heavy bottomed pot and cook
over medium heat until chips are
melted and cocoa is very hot, but
not boiling, stir often. This cocoa is
a little rich, almost a dessert, but oh
so good.

Letter to the ditor


St Leo University

Scholarships

To Whom It May Concern;
I'm a recent graduate of Florida
Gateway College in Lake City Flor-
ida. During my tenure with the
school I was granted the honor of be-
ing inducted into their chapter of Phi
Theta Kappa; an international honor
society for two year colleges. Part
of the requirements for induction into
this prestigious society is a GPA of
3.5 and maintaining a 3.0. Over my
final year at Florida Gateway College
I served as secretary, treasurer and
graduated as president for the Phi
Theta Kappa chapter. At the time of
my graduation from Florida Gateway
College, I enrolled in St. Leo Univer-
sity with a transferring GPA of 3.52.
One of the many benefits of be-
ing a member of Phi Theta Kappa
is numerous scholarship opportuni-
ties; one of which is many schools
offering a transfer scholarship to re-
cruit these scholars to their various
schools. St. Leo University sent a
recruiter.to speak with us about such
opportunities at their school.
You can imagine my surprise when
the staff at the Lake City Center
handed me a slip of paper with my
aid package and there was no trans-
fer scholarship or even an academic
scholarship offer on it. I asked why
and was told that it was only avail-
able to those that transferred to the
campus in Tampa. I was also. told
that I could call the Financial Aid of-
fice and speak with them concerning
the matter.
.After two days and numerous
phone calls between the Financial
Aid and Admissions offices, I finally
received a little information. I was
told that scholarships such as the Phi
Theta Kappa Transfer and Academic
Scholarships .were only offered on
campus to offset the higher cost. -I
was not eligible for such scholarships
because I had chosen to attend a cen-
ter and not relocate to Tampa to the
main campus.
In shock, I told them that it wasn't
fair or right, I had earned those schol-
arships and that I was in a situation
where relocation was not an option.
If relocation was an option I would
have gone to a school offering me a
much larger Phi Theta Kappa transfer
scholarship then St. Leo. I explained
that I thought the purpose of these
centers was to be convenient for the
students and allow St. Leo to reach
more students including military.


How-was it convenient for me to
lose so much money and have to take
loans?
One of the reasons I chose the Lake
City Center was because of smaller
class sizes, even though I would
have to take them at night and on the
weekend. Other classes I would have
to take -completely online because
there was no local teacher. They also
teach their classes at the center in 8
week courses, so there is no miss-
ing anything. I had already lost my
work study grant because the center
only received one and it was filled.
I expected that and accepted it. I had
already planned to look for a new job
once I had my class schedule.
My aid package was only $3850
(Pell Grant and Florida Residence
Access Grand) and the tuition just for
the classes themselves was $2868.
The voucher they sent me for books
was only $450, that doesn't count
likely having to buy a new laptop
since one of my classes is completely
online and at least one other isia hy-
brid. The PTK scholarship I have
been trying to gain access to is about


$2500.a year not to mention what-
ever I could have gotten in academic
scholarships. To ensure I have mon-
ey at least to cover my books, I have
had to accept a $3500 Subsidized
Stafford Loan putting me even deep-
er in debt for schooling. I already
lost, my work study grant because
the center only gets one student, and
the position was filled. I called to
inquire about moving to the Trenton
center since I applied for their work
study position, only be told that they
had lost that position and didn't know
why it was still posted.
Now I'm not only struggling to find
a new job but now I'm having to look
for a new school in hopes of receiv-
ing awards that I worked extremely
hard for. I know I'm not likely the
first person this has happened to, but
trying to have this changed has to
start somewhere. I'm not sure where,
else to turn for help at this point, but
it's not right that something I worked
so hard for has been taken away from
me because I can't move and be a tra-
ditional student.

Joshua's New Year
(Kent Heaton)


With a new year dawning on the horizon there is a need to
reestablish and reaffirm our lives to a new course with
anticipation for the future. This desire is tempered by the
reality that tomorrow is never promised and life is but a
vapor (James 4:14). However a certain expectation remains
of the possibilities of what'lay\ ahead. The apostle Paul
affirmed the practice of "reaching forward to those things
which are ahead" (Philippians 3:13) with the goal of the
"upward call of God in Christ Jesus" (Philippians 3:14)
we press forward.
Following the death of Moses, the son of Nun (Moses'
assistant) was chosen to lead the people into the promised
land. The Lord comes to Joshua to reestablish and reaffirm
His promises made with Moses and to give Joshua a plan
for the conquest of a new land. The first thing Joshua
needed to know was that the days past with Moses were
completed and this was the dawn of a new day. "Moses My
servant is dead. Now therefore, arise" (Joshua 1:2). We
can never conquer today to secure the hope of tomorrow
until, we have left the work of yesterday. Joshua needed to
gather himself and the people and begin the new work
ahead of them. With the passing year we should reflect
upon lessons learned but leave the mistakes, failures and
successes to the pages of yesterday. As the new year
unfolds we 'should "arise" and go forth with a new
determined spirit.
The Lord promised Joshua the land was his for the taking.
"To the land which I am giving to them" (Joshua 1:2)
shows the promise of what can happen when we take God
into our lives and live by His will. No battles had been
fought nor land traversed but with the Lord's help the


security of success was already granted. This new year
brings many challenges to overcome and battles to fight.
There is no fear in the outcome because we can confidently
say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man
do to me" (Hebrews 13:6)? Furthermore, the Lord assures
Joshua that "No man shall be able to stand before you"
(Joshua 1:5). If we seek to do the Lord's will in the coming
year it will be accomplished because if it is of'God then
nothing can overthrow it (Acts 5:39).
Three times the Lord tells Joshua to "be strong and of
good courage" (Joshua 1:6-9). It takes strength of character
to face the unknown and the heart needs to be fortified with
good courage. "There is no fear in love, but perfect love
casts out fear" (1 John 4:18). Our love for the Father will
give us the strength to endure the unimaginable, withstand
the wiles of the devil and make the new year a "time of
refreshing" (Acts 3:19). The source of strength Joshua
needed did not come from himself but from the law of the
Lord. Obedience to the will of God was paramount for
success and the only way,we can find blessings in a new
year is through the power of God's word. It needs to be our
meditation day and night (Joshua 1:8).
The final exhortation by the Lord is for Joshua to know
there was no reason to be afraid "for the Lord your God is
with you wherever you go" (Joshua 1:9). The Lord is our
Lord when we obey Him. The Lord is our Guide when we
follow Him. The Lord is our Light when we let His word
shine in us. The Lord is our Promise when we believe in His
word. May the blessing of a New Year be our resolution in
the daily word of God.

The houses ranged from small

patios, chimneys, and gates. All of
the houses were very creative and
original.
Our parents and students had such
a great time. I can't wait until our

Thanks to everyone who came!
I would like to give special thanks
to Mrs. Bonnie Norton, our Parent Li-

Also, thanks to our teachers who

THURDAY DECMBE 27,201 GICHRIT CUNTYJOUNAL aneFiv


By Angie Land


SI like moving forward, especially
this time of year. After Christmas
Day, I anr ready to take down the
tree, pack up the decorations and be-
Sgin looking for the fresh clean pages
of a New Year's calendar. Depend-
ing on how you look at it, those pages
,'can represent days full of dread and
demands or they can shine with pos-
sibility and opportunities!
The Bible records the Apostle Paul
saying it best, "...I press on to take
hold of that for which Christ Jesus
took hold of me...but one thing I do:
forgetting what is behind and strain-
ing toward what is ahead, I press on
toward the goal to win the prize for
which God has called me heaven-
ward in Christ Jesus." (Philippians
3:13-14)
Understanding that God has a plan
and purpose for our lives is important,
but He has called us to participate
with Him in bringing that purpose to
reality. Paul says we have to "press
on" or keep moving forward to fulfill
that plan. Then he gives us instruc-
tion on how to do just that. Forgetting
what is behind doesn't mean that we
can't remember our past...only God
can intentionally forget anything.
What it does mean is that the past
shouldn't take priority over the pres-
ent and future. Too many of us live
continually with the hurt and failures
of the past and can't seem to move
Ahead in forgiveness and success. Or
maybe we live in the past because
we believe they were our best days,
and the rest of our years will pale in
comparison-and they absolutely will
as long as we choose to stay behind.
God's plan here is for us to give the
present and future our energy, our
hope and our faith that God's plan for
us will be "immeasurably more than
all we ask or imagine, according to
His power that is at work within us."
(Ephesians 3:20)
The abundant life that Christ offers
us is not a destination, but a journey,
and to find it, we keep moving for-
ward until we reach that "heaven-
ward" home.
The second partof the instruction
is just as critical; "straining toward



I1


Angie Land
what is ahead" is something we need
to give special attention. Webster's
dictionary defines strain as "to strug-
gle; to make a desperate effort." This
is our first clue that pressing on and
moving forward will not be an easy
thing to do. "Easy" usually means
staying right in that comfortable
spot-it may not even be a great spot,
but at least we know what to expect!
But we do have the choice, we can
take the easy way and spend the rest
of our lives wondering if there was
more, or we can start making that
desperate effort to find and live in the
purpose for which God planned our
whole life.
I hope so much that you will grab
those fresh pages of a new calendar
and see them as fresh new opportuni-
ties to be everything that God created
you to be, because your heart really
does matter!
Blessings for an amazing 2013!

Haven Hospice kids shopping

night brings smiles
The fifth annual Kids' Holiday Shopping Night, hosted by Haven Hos-
pice, brought smiles to more than 200 children at the organization's Attic
resale stores: in Gainesville, December 6,' in Lake City, December 11, and
Chiefland, December 13. Participating children enjoyed the opportunity to
purchase presents for parents, grandparents and siblings, using Santa Bucks
provided by the Attic.
Children were treated to a free photo with Santa, gift wrapping and refresh-
ments, which helped many families who are financially struggling during the
holiday season. Area businesses such as Toys for Tots, Dollar General, Fam-
ily Dollar and Wal-Mart supported the effort.
"All sales at the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Stores directly benefit Haven
Hospice patients and their families," he added, "as well as those served by
our community programs such as Camp Safe Haven for children who have
experienced a loss."
In 2011, the Attic stores provided $559,000 to directly support Haven's
unfunded programs and services.
For more information about the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Stores, call

Horse Club donates $6,500

to Shands Cancer Center


By Dave Wilson,
The Levy County Horse Club
held their 12th Annual Breast Can-
cer Awareness Benefit Trail Ride on
October 20, 2012. The event is held
at the Tidewater Trailhead in Goethe
State Forest each year in conjunction
with "Forest Awareness Month" and
"Greenways and Trails Month." This
benefit is for a great cause and what
better reason to be out on the trails.
This year's event raised $6,500.00
that was donated to Shands Cancer
Center to be utilized by local breast
cancer patients. The Levy County
Horse Club has donated a total of
$41,125.00 into our foundation that
is administered by the Shands Cancer
Center to date.
The horse club held our annual
Christmas ride/campout/dinner dur-
ing the weekend of December 15th,
2012 at which time we presented
the check to Jennifer Adams, Clini-
cal Social Worker for Shands Cancer
Center.


Jennifer informed the club how
the funds are so desperately needed
and have been used to benefit about
600 patients in need, so far. Utilized
for purchasing their combs, brushes,
wigs, gas for trips for chemo treat-
ments, and even an occasional pay-
ment for their electric bill, motel
stay, rent payment, etc. The monies
have also paid for an elderly ladies
car transmission to be repaired to al-
low her transportation for her chemo
treatments. The recipients of our
funds are genuinely surprised to hear
that their assistance is coming from a
horse club. Hearing patients stories
is what makes all the planning, work
and local business contributions that
go into putting on such an event, to
benefit our neighbors, so worthwhile.
Should you be interested in next
year's event or wish to learn more
about our horse club, you may contact
us on our website at www.levycoun-
tyhorseclub.com or email levy2@
flahorse.com.


Dave Wilson, of the Levy County Horse Club, presents a check to Jen-
nifer Adams, clinical social worker for Shands Cancer Center.

American Legion Post 91 -'


membership drive underway
I ^'II r'Q 1 ,^" L : 'L. i BS 'fl i r


.Submitted
The American Legion was formally
chartered in 1919 by returning WWI
veterans who saw a need for a strong
national veterans organization.
Their diligence and vision led to
creation of the Veterans Administra-
tion and the GI Bill of Rights. The
Bill of Rights has been amended as
needed on a continuous basis ever
since and largely at the relentless ef-
fort of the American Legion.
The American Legion Family at
Post 91 has several goals for this
current membership drive during the
months of December and January.
Together, members of The American
Legion, The American Legion Aux-
iliary, the Sons of The American Le-
gion, and the American Legion Rid-
ers make up what is known as The
Legion Family. All four organizations
place high importance on preserving
our American traditions and values,
improving the quality of life for our
nation's children, caring for veterans
and their families, and perhaps most
importantly, teaching the fundamen-
tals of good citizenship.
American Legion Jamerson-Shef-
field Post 91 is now recruiting new
members. "It is no secret that WW II
veterans and Korean War era veterans
have long been the backbone of Post
91. Unfortunately, these loyal mem-
bers are now few in number. Post 91
encourages qualified veterans from
the Vietnam War era, Lebanon/Gre-
nada conflicts era, Panama conflict
era, and the Persian Gulf conflicts,
era, to join and get involved. Many
local veterans may be unaware that
anyone who has served since 1990 is
now eligible (in addition to other war
eras) and includes National Guard
and Reserve veterans. Be proud you
qualify!!
We want all current members to
have their dues paid for the 2013
membership year. This will enable
Post 91 to concentrate on other ar-
eas to help veterans and children in
our communities. We also want our
membership to grow so we will have
more members who are ready and


able to participate in our programs.
American Legion Auxiliary Unit
91 is looking for new members.
Women may join the American Le-
gion Auxiliary if they are the mother,
wife, daughter, sister, grand-daughter,
great-grand-daughter or grandmother
of members of The Amncrican Lepitom
and deceased veterans who served in
the United StatesArmed Forces dur-
ing the war eras. Inhe 'li pi i It 1f service
not self, the mission of the American
Legion Auxiliary is to honor the sac-
rifice of those who serve by enhanc-
ing the lives of veterans, military, and
their families. For God and country
we advocate.for veterans, educate our
citizens, mentor youth, and promote
patriotism, good citizenship, peace
and security. If you are interested in
joining American Legion Auxiliary
Unit 91, please contact Lucy Lacey
at (352) 949-3218 or visit us during
our monthly meetings on the third
Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
We are trying to revitalize the
membership ranks of our Sons of'
The American Legion Squadron
91. Founded in 1932, Sons of The
American Legion exists to honor the
service and sacrifice of Legionnaires.
Sons of The American Legion mem-
bers include males of all ages whose
parents or grandparents served in the
U.S. military and were eligible for
American Legion membership: This
is a perfect way for a non-veteran
to join our American Legion Fam-
ily and help serve.our community. If
you are interested in joining Sons of
The American Legion Squadron 91,
please contact Rod Lacey or Sherry
Hayes-Luzader or visit us, during our
monthly meetings on the third Thurs-

ter. Military veterans who served
honorably anywhere during the Con-
gressionally designated wartime eras

Bingo Games at American Legion
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 are open
to the public. Post 91 has been of-
fering Bingo to its members and the
tri-county community for over six
months. Players come from all over
the tri-county area to play Bingo. Our
Bingo program has realized great
success due to the faithful participa-
tion by our patrons. We are now able
to change and upgrade some of our
games to show how grateful we are
to our Bingo players. Beginning on
Tuesday night, November 20th, Post
91 began raising the jackpot amount
for the Progressive Pot game (game
#16) by $10.00 each week until we
have a winner. The consolation prize
amount for the Progressive Pot game
was also be raised from $30.00 to a
new amount of $50.00. During the
month of November we replaced
some of the games to provide more
variety. American Legion Post 91
hosts Bingo every Tuesday evening.
Our smoke-free and alcohol-free
Bingo hall is located at 4200 South
U.S. Highway 129 across from the
"Field of Dreams." Doors will open
at 6:30 p.m.. Regular games start
at 7:00 p.m. Fifteen regular Bingo
games are played, with variable jack-
pots that depend on the number of
players present. Game #16 with the
Progressive Pot concludes about 9:30
p.m. but will obviously vary with the
amount of numbers called in each
game and the number of winners.
Proceeds from these Bingo games
will provide support for local youth
and veterans such as scholarships,
sponsorship in Boys State program,
and donations to Cub Scout Pack 406
as well as other veterans' benefits.
Free coffee is provided to our Bingo
patrons. During the cooler winter
season we are also offering free hot
chocolate. Come join us for an eve-
ning of fun Bingo!!
Post 91 invites all of our Legion
members and Auxiliary members to
our Post 91 Christmas Party which

37th Annual

What is a camellia? It is the main
source of the tea consumed all over
the world. The camellia is also the
best-kept secret of the flower world.
Come see for yourself literally hun-
dreds of dazzling camellia blooms
as the Gainesville Camellia Society
presents its 37th Annual Camellia
Show at Kanapaha Botanical Gar-
dens, 4700 SW 58th Drive, Gaines-

p.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday, January
6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Do you have
camellias in your yard? Why not
enter your blooms this year? Just
bring your blooms to Kanapaha be-
tween 7:00 and 10:00 am. Gaines-
ville Camellia Society members will
be on hand to help you identify your
blooms and fill out the entry cards.
We urge everyone who grows camel-
lias to enter the competition. It is not
necessary for you to belong to the
club to enter. If you do not know the
names of your blooms, we can help
identify them.


The Sheriff's Volunteers had an-
other successful Thanksgiving turkey
drive and distribution aid we were
close to our limit of helping 300 fam-
ilies in need. Thanks to many mon-
etary and in-kind contributions from
generous Gilchrist County residents
(a list of contributors will be pub-
lished at a later date) we were able
to provide Thanksgiving dinners to
those who might not otherwise have
.had such a positive experience on
that day.
During the month of November, the
citizens patrol cars were driven 2,403
miles and donated 437 hours of their
time, not only preparing, delivering,
and distributing the Thanksgiving
food stuffs, but also patrolling city
and county roads, working at school
crossings, and assisting with traf-
fic flow at-football games, tliWHB'el'

helping at the Bell and Trenton Food
Pantries. Two of our newest members
and two of our prior members who
have returned to active duty contrib-
uted 66 hours during the Thanksgiv-
ing food distribution.
During the month of November, 32
:CARE calls were made and 28 visits
,brought comfort to shut-ins by just
one of our volunteers.
Please note, our next general meet-
ing will be held on January 8th, at 6
p.m., in the Sheriff's Office confer-
ence room, rather than the first Tues-


day of the month, which is the New
Year Holiday.
The Sheriff's Volunteers are most
appreciative of the support and en-
couragement given by Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter to our group. We are also
very appreciative of the wonder-
ful refreshments provided by Cindy
Slaughter over the years. Both Dan-
iel and Cindy will be missed and we
wish them well on their new adven-
tures, but we also look forward to
serving our newly elected Sheriff,
Bobby Schultz.

DEP kicks off water quality


restoration efforts for the


Suwannee River Basin


The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection is holding the
first stakeholder meeting to begin
hammering out the Suwannee River
Basin Management'Action Plan. The
plan will plot the course for restoring
the Suwannee River and the unique
spring systems that feed it, with ac-
tivities throughout a watershed cov-
ering more than one million acres in
Suwannee, Gilchrist, Levy, Dixie,
Lafayette, and Madison counties.
Togethervith the' recently adopted
action plan for the nearby Santa Fe
River Basin, the Suwannee basin
management action plan will guide
projects and activities to restore wa-
tersheds encompassing more than
two million acres in the North Flor-
ida heartland.
The water quality restoration goals,
or "total maximum daily load," ad-
opted for the Suwannee Basin require
a 35 percent reduction in nitrogen
concentrations. Reducing nutrients
will cut down on the growth of algae
and reinvigorate the river and springs.
The plan now underway will lay out
targeted actions to reduce nutrients,
an implementation schedule and the
resources necessary to succeed.
"The Department has a sense of
urgency to find the best solutions for
each affected waterbody," said DEP
Secretary Herschel Vinyard. "The
Department is focused on measur-
able progress in restoration. We want
results. The Suwannee River initia-
tive is a great example of what can
be accomplished through state, local
and private partnerships."
Reducing nutrient discharges to
the Suwannee River will improve
water quality and habitat and sustain
the fishing and recreation for which
the area is justly famous. The plan
will set forth a phased approach to
implementing agricultural and urban
best management practices, better
stormwater infrastructure and man-
agement, and reusing treated Waste-
water for irrigation and other benefi-
cial purposes rather than discharging
it into the watershed. It also will call
for ongoing water quality sampling
that will allow stakeholders to con-
tinuously improve our understanding
of pollutant sources and impacts, ad-
just strategies as needed and measure
success.
The Suwannee River Partnership
(www.suwannee.org) and its coali-
tion of some 60 governments, busi-
nesses, and industries already have


invested time, money, and good faith
reducing nutrient levels in the Su-
wannee and its springs, paving the
way for the plan. For example, the
Department, in cooperation with the
Suwannee River Water Management
District, has underwritten nearly $1
million for a fertilization/irrigation
retrofit project, with more funding
anticipated for other identified needs.
In addition, the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices teamed with the United States
Department of Agriculture's Narural
Resources Conservation Service to
collectively invest more than, $20
million over the last seven years on a
variety of best management practices
for agricultural grower and producer
water quality and water savings.
"Today marks an important begin-
ning in our collective efforts to pro-
tect and restore the waters of the Su-
wannee Basin," said Ann Shortelle,
Suwannee River Water Management
District Executive Director. "We
look forward to working with our
stakeholders throughout the basin to
improve water quality in the Suwan-
nee River and springs."
"The Suwannee River Basin Man-
agement Action Plan represents the
culmination of many years of coor-
dinated effort to partner with all the
regions' stakeholders to develop and
implement programs to restore and
protect the springs, the main chan-
nel of the river and its estuary," said
Rich Budell, director of Office of
Agricultural Water Policy. "The Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture and


Consumer Services is committed to
continuing that partnership with the
SRWMD, DEP, the local agricultural
community and many others as we
embark on the next phase of assuring
that the unique natural resources of
this area are protected for generations
to come."
When this restoration plan is final-
ized, the Department will have ad-
opted a total of 12 basin management
action plans, covering 100 waterbody
segments. Nine additional restoration
plans currently af?&ein development
covering 59 additional waterbody
segments. For more information

protection and restoration programs

ter/watersheds/bmap.htm.

When is Candy Dangerous?





1 5






















When it is Used to Flavor Tobacco!


Tobacco companies are using candy and fruit flavors
to sweeten their products and make them
more attractive to our children and teenagers.


But this is a dangerous bait-and-switch designed
to addict younger and younger kids to tobacco
creating .life-long customers.



Don't Let Your Kids Fall for the Trap.
