Man shot after forcing his way into Waccasassa home


By Carrie A. Mizell
A local man was shot and killed on
Sunday, Feb. 3 after forcing his way
into the Waccasassa home of an ex-
girlfriend, who was also the mother
of his nine month-old son.
Kenneth David Drown, Jr., 21, re-
portedly forced his way in the front
door of the home, located at 8449 SE


85th Street, at 4:30 a.m. Sheriff's Lt.
Jeff Manning indicated that Drown
was armed with a 12 gauge shotgun
when he entered the home, where
several people including his ex-girl-
friend and infant son were at the
time. An individual inside the home
later told investigators that Drown
had been drinking the night before.


A struggle ensued and a single gun-
shot was fired. Drown was disarmed
and left the home in his own vehicle.
While someone inside the home
was reporting the incident by phone
to 911 dispatchers at the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Offices, and depu-
ties were responding to the scene,
Drown returned, armed once again


with another shotgun, Lt. Manning
explained, in a press release issued
Sunday afternoon.
Drown forced his way into the
home a second time, where he was
confronted by the home owner, Lisa
Weeks, 40.
"Drown pointed his shotgun at
Weeks, who in defense, fired two


rounds from a handgun," Lt. Man-
ning stated.
A male juvenile, who is 16, also
fired a single round at Drown.
According to Lt. Manning, Drown
received gunshot wounds to his up-
per body and was subsequently
transported to Shands Hospital at the,
University of Florida, where he was


pronounced dead.
No one else at the home was in-
jured in the incident.
At press time, the investigation
was continuing, as investigators from
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
worked with the State Attorney's Of-
fice and the Medical Examiner's Of-
fice.


Celebration Saturday

for 4-year-old cancer

survivor


Bridget Mathis


By Carrie A. Mizell
Two years after being diagnosed
with leukemia, 4-year-old Bridget
Mathis endured her last chemothera-
py treatment on January 10, signify-
ing the end of a hard-won battle with
cancer.
Over the last two years, Bridget has
gone through countless hospital vis-
its and trips to the emergency room,
where she has undergone numerous
spinal taps with chemotherapy, blood
transfusions, platelet infusions and
antibiotic infusions.
Despite all the pain and suffering
Bridget. has had to endure, her par-
ents Edward and Heather Mathis and
grandparents Kenny and Lisa Mathis,
have never questioned God's will for

Bridget's young life.
"Bridget was given this journey
to walk and every step that she has
walked, we've walked with her, and
God has carried her in his arms," said
Lisa Mathis, Bridget's grandmother.
"Not only did we walk it with her,
but everyone that knows and loves
her has walked it with ts. How can
we ever say thank you to everyone
that has walked with us through this
journey? It's impossible. There are
no words to ever say how much we
appreciate each prayer that was sent
up and continues to be sent up on be-
half of our Bridget."
Bridget's family would like to
thank all the wonderful doctors and
nurses at Shands, who showed over-
whelming love to Bridget each and'
every time she visited for a chemo-
therapy treatment.
After taking her final treatment on
January 10, Bridget rang a bell to sig-
nify that she had completed treatment
and won her battle against cancer.
"On that day, we thought of Bridg-
et's friends there [at the hospital] who
were not so lucky to have won their
battles with this terrible disease called
cancer," Lisa Mathis said. "We knew
that there was rejoicing in Heaven, as
she rang that bell.
Bridget officially took -her last
chemo pill on January 25. She will
now make follow-up visits to the
clinic for blood work once a month
for the next year. After that, Bridget
will go every two to three months and
following that, every six months for
the next five years.
"We have faith that there will be no
more cancer for our Bridget, and for
that we give all the glory to our Lord
Jesus," Lisa Mathis said.
Over the last year, Bridget has
blossomed, becoming "Ms. Chatty
Kathy", according to her grandmoth-
er, she enjoys dressing up in anything
pink, and especially loves sparkles.
She even loves to play hair dresser,
reminding family members of a time
when she didn't have any hair, and
especially loves playing with her big
brother Charlie, who is a first grade
student at Bell Elementary School.
A "No Mo Chemo Party" will be
held in celebration of Bridget Mathis
on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 1 p.m. Steel
Bridge will perform. Anyone inter-
ested in volunteering to help with the
celebration is asked to call, Tawnya
Jenkins at (352) 262-2647 or Tammie

Education Foundation's


Walk-a-thon generates $12,000


By Carrie A. Mizell
- Over 100 people braved the cold
on Saturday morning to help the
Education Foundation of Gilchrist
County raise $12,000 at its 2013
Walk-A-Thon.
Down from $13,760 raised in
2012, the event serves as a fund-
raiser for high'school scholarships
for graduating seniors and teacher
mini-grants.
This year, 10 teams worked tire-
lessly to raise funds for the Educa-
tion Foundation and on Saturday
morning the team members walked,
jogged and biked the streets of
Trenton for a very worthy cause.
Capital City Bank was once again
credited as the top fundraiser in
2013, having collected $3,547.19.
That's just $178.28 less than the
team collected for the 2012 Walk-
A-Thon.
Other local banks with Walk-A-
Thon teams included, Drummond
Community Bank who collected
$900 and Ameris Bank with $750.
In the schools category, Tren-
ton Elementary School raised an
overwhelming $1,600.33 for the
Walk-a-Thon. TES took the first
place rank away from Bell El-
ementary School, who won last
year's schools category after col-
lecting $1,492. In 2013, the team
from Trenton Middle-High School
turned in $885. Bell Elementary
School collected $1,529.90 and
Bell Middle-High School brought
in $972.38 this year.
Other teams who participated
on Saturday included the Gilchrist
County Courthouse who collected,
$620, American Dairy Company
with $750 and the Gilchrist County
School Board with $445.

Two juveniles were arrested last
week after admitting to burglariz-
ing the agriculture shop at Bell High
School.
Physical evidence led to the posi-
tive identification of the two suspects,
whose names are not being released
due to their age. Both teenagers have
been charged with Commercial Bur-
glary, after forcing their way into the
agriculture shop, causing damage and
stealing property.


Initially, School Resource Officer/
Deputy C.J. Schauble arrived at the
scene and took the first report on the
incident. A follow-up investigation
was performed by Detective K. Phil-
lips, who also processed the crime
scene.
"Detective Phillips was able to lo-
cate physical evidence at the point of
entry that led to the positive identi-
fication of the suspects," stated Lt.
Jeff Manning of the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office. "Detective Phillips


interviewed both suspects, who ad-
mitted to their full involvement in the
incident."
According to Bill Martin, Bell
High School ag teacher, over $100
was stolen from his office and the
office of Debbie Jones, who is the
middle school ag teacher. Martin
explained that he and Jones do not
typically leave cash locked in their
offices overnight, or over a weekend,
but the money stolen had just been
turned in to the ag teachers after it


2 teenagers arrested after breaking into


Bell High School's ag shop


was collected from a candy bar fund-
raiser Bell FFA was holding at the
time the break-in occurred.
A number of hand tools were also
stolen from the ag shop, but have
since been recovered, however the
cash is gone. In his 22 years at Bell
High School, Martin said this marks
the second time the ag shop has been
broken into.
"It's been worse," Martin said, of
this break-in. "But it's disappointing
to see."

3 cups hot water
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 to 1 teaspoon salt

Place grits in slow cooker add wa-

high and let grits cook covered for
about 3 hours. Stir every hour or so. I
usually just stir when I happen to go
into the kitchen for something. You
may need to add extra water.
While I'm giving away all my grits
secrets I need to mention a way to get
really creamy grits is to add about 2
tablespoons of whipping cream and
extra butter just before serving. Stir
whipping or heavy cream and bitter
in well and you will -have the creami-
est grits ever. Another way to change
up grits is to throw in a handful
(about a cup) of grated sharp cheese
and a 1/2 teaspoon of dried pepper
flakes during the last during the last
30 minutes of cooking time.
A way to speed up stone ground
grits cooking is to soak them over
night in water just as you would dried

If you are interested in buying
stone ground grits you might check

are sold at North West Seafood in

Letters to the Editor


Susan Owens


Character Council's...

Personality


of the


Month

By Geneva Cornwell
People of generosity are people
who have a noble spirit by demon-
strating a willingness to give or share.
Giving to others frequently brings a
blessing back to the giver.
There are steps in displaying gen-
erosity. First, one must manage well
one's resources, then, look for and
identify a need, thirdly, it is impor-
tant to share those resources by giv-
ing of oneself, which, finally, allows
for an investment in others.
The word generosity shares a com-
mon lineage with the word genera-
tions. Both words are related to the
Latin term genus, which means "a
family or race."
Generations carry inherited physi-
cal features and personal tendencies
throughout a family tree.
In a similar way, generosity links
people together. A deeper understand-
ing of the meaning of generosity re-
veals its similarity to benevolence
and compassion.
The Character Council of Gilchrist
County is pleased to introduce, as
its current personality Mrs. Susan
Owens. Owens, who has a degree
in business, also is a graduate of UF
in Elementary Education. She is not
only the mother to four daughters,
but also teaches 4th grade at Bell El-
ementary School, and, once a week,
tutors students who need assistance
and encouragement. .
She is also the Dairy Goat Supern-
.tendent.of the Suwannee River Youth
Fair, a Safety Patrol sponsor, is ac-
tive in Trenton Community Church
of the Nazarene, and, along with her
husband, Mitchell, works at planting.
and having available for U-pick a
community garden for those in need
here in Gilchrist County. (Matter of
fact, the community garden, this past
fall and winter, serviced 376 families
with winter greens, and, to add to her
spirit of generosity, a spring commu-
nity garden is now in the works.)
Owens believes that by being gen-
erous to others, "it's a "win-win situ-
ation, for by instilling the want to do
it, by placing the desire in one's heart,
being generous really does not neces-
sarily cost even a dime to be thought-
ful of others who are in need, for one
good deed deserves another."
In concluding this delightful inter-
view, this author became, even more
aware than before, that the more
people recognize how others have
provided opportunities for them; the
more they will recognize the impor-
tance of investing in the lives of oth-
ers and thereby continue the cycle of
generosity, from one generation to
another.

Second

Amendment
The wording and placement of
the Second Amendment highlights
the brilliance of the Founders of our
great Nation. Being that it was sec-
ond shows' how high in regard the
founders placed private gun own-
ership. They also knew that those
who have the guns have the power.
In our country the power lies within
the hands of the people, not the gov-
ernment. The 2nd Amendment also
clearly states that that right "shall not
be infringed upon", meaning the gov-
ernment has no authority to restrict
that right by any means. Sadly many
Americans are content to relinquish
this right and responsibility and place
all of their faith in big government.
Nothing outlined in the President's
gun reform agenda would stop bad
people from doing bad things. All it
does it restrict gun ownership from
honest Americans, i.e., infringing on
our rights. The Second Amendment
is also not about hunting, or sports, or
recreation. It is only partially about
defending yourself from a criminal.
The Second Amendment is about
ensuring a free state. Barack Obama
and today's democrat party are show-
ing that they have no regard for your
constitutional rights. The purpose of
the Bill of Rights was to safeguard
certain subjects from the winds of
change of politics. An American's
right to life, liberty, and property, to
free speech, a free press, freedom of
worship and assembly, private gun
ownership, and other fundamental
rights may not be submitted to a vote
and those rights do not depend on the
outcome of an election.

Have You Been Resurrected?
(Kent Heaton)


The power of the resurrection was a central theme among
the New Testament disciples. Peter's sermon in Acts 2
affirmed that God raised Jesus from the dead. Later Peter
appealed to the Jews to repent in Acts 3 when he declared,
"But you denied the Holy One and the Just, and asked for
a murderer to be granted to you, and killed the Prince of
life, whom God raised from the dead, of which we are
witnesses" (Acts 3:14-15). In the city of Athens, Paul
preached the message of resurrection to a heathen world
showing a. day of judgment was coming by the assurance
that God raised Jesus from 'the dead (Acts 16:31). When
Paul wrote to the church at Corinth he gave a list of those
who had witnessed the resurrection of Jesus from Peter to
over five hundred disciples (1 Corinthians 15:1-8). All
believers in Christ accept that he died and was risen the
first day of the week (Matthew 28; Mark 16; Luke 24; John
20).
I Because of the resurrection of Jesus all disciples of Christ
live for the final resurrection when the mortal will put on
immortality and the hope of Heaven is realized (John 5:29;
11:25; 1 Peter 1:3). However the resurrection to eternal life
is not guaranteed to every person. As with salvation,
conditions are determined by God that allows acceptance
into His grace. The promise of resurrection will only be
given to those who have been resurrected in this life.
This type of resurrection does not refer to a bodily
resurrection like Lazarus (John 11) or the widow of Nain's
son (Luke 7:11-17). There is a resurrection that takes place
in the lives of all those who obey the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Paul explains' the means which all men enjoy this
resurrection. "For if we have been united together in the
likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the


likeness of His resurrection" (Romans 6:5). The English
Standard Version says, "We shall certainly be united with
him in a resurrection like his." To enjoy the resurrection of
life eternal all men must be united in the likeness of his
death.
SPaul does not leave us without the knowledge of how to be
united in the likeness of the death of Christ. "Or do you not
know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus
were baptized into His death? Therefore' we were buried
with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ
was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even
so we also should walk in newness of life" (Romans 6:3-4).
Edward Hiscox declared that "baptism is not essential to
salvation" leading many to deny the power of the
resurrection. The apostle Paul denies that by showing that
without baptism there is no resurrection and without
resurrection no man shall- see God.
The essential character of baptism is, when a person dies
and is buried in water and raised to newness of life. The
believer is a resurrected person. When Jesus returns He will
not be looking for those who have only accepted an ideal
but who have "obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine
to which [they] were delivered" (Romans 6:17). Paul
continues, "For he who has died has been freed from sin.
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also
live with Him, knowing that Christ, having been raised
from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has
dominion over Him. For the death that He died, He died to
sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God"
(Romans 6:7-10). Like Jesus we must be crucified, die, be
buried and raised! Only then are we saved!

Teenagers, get

involved
The other night at the Republican
Party meeting, a teenager spoke to
the group.
She told us that high school stu-
dents across the state had formed a
young political group. Once again I
have high hopes for the future of this
country.
NOT because she was a Republi-
can, but because she and others were
taking time to get together, and dis-
cuss facts and issues and reach an in-
formed plan of action. These students
in a few years will be our young lead-
ers.
It would be great if all teenagers
would be involved in the political
process and help shape our return to
greatness, regardless of party lean-
ings.
Would it not also be great if all
of us put aside our differences and
worked together to help in that return,
by backing the candidate that cares
about our future, be it county state, or
federal level, and not because of the
agenda put forth by a group?.
We put aside our 'differences in
World War Two, and made this coun-
try the greatest in the world. We sure-
ly can do it again.
Thank you,
Richard Esseck

Streetwise


By Lauren Rudd
The rampant discourse over the
nation's economic future took a back
seat to some more important forecasts
recently as fractious factions face off
over who has the superior groundhog
on Groundhog Day.
Selected members of Marmota
monax are yanked out of their com-
fortable dens to view their shadows,
the purpose of, being to predict the
weather six weeks into the future.
Staten Island Chuck is up against the
powerful PR machine ofPunxsutaw-
ney Phil and his 128th annual fore-
cast. Not to be outdone, General Be-
auregard Lee of Georgia, who holds
"honorary doctorates" from the Uni-
versity of Georgia and Georgia State
in "Weather Prognostication," has to
deal with Sir Walter Wally of North
Carolina.
By way of full disclosure, the fine
folks at the University of Georgia
tersely informed me a couple of years
ago that an honorary degree was seri-
ous business. They said I should not
have added credence to the idea that
academic recognition of such magni-
tude had actually been bestowed by a
hallowed university on a groundhog.
Therefore, let me make it clear; I did
not mean to imply that Beauregard
had actually been awarded such an
honor. After all, it was not on his Cur-
riculum vitae.
And consider the alterations nec-
essary to fit old Beauregard with
the obligatory academic robe, not
to mention the stitches his handler
would require. Yet, the appropriate
robe and hood would certainly be
necessary dress for Beauregard to
stand shoulder to shin with his peda-
gogic colleagues.
Meanwhile, desirous of taking
advantage of the ground swell of
groundhog controversy but with no
groundhog of its own to roust af-
ter having previously banned win-
ter, Florida at one time decided to
"borrow" one. To that end, Florida
devised an ad campaign indicating
that Punxsutawney Phil had exited
stage right in, search of warmer digs.
However, Phil's handlers were not
amused, muttering something about,
"trademark violation," and the pro-
motion died an early death, unlike
128 year old Punxsutawney Phil.
Given the level of expertise most
groundhogs have with the English
language, not to mention meteorol-
ogy, there is probably some doubt as
to scientific strength of this forecast-
,ing approach. Unfortunately, many
of Wall Street's prognosticators are
in the same league 'as your local
groundhog.
For example, some promulgate
with full sincerity the idea that the

Super Bowl can forecast the stock
market, meaning that at least two of
three major market indices will rise
when an original NFL team wins.
However, if a team from the original
AFL wins, at least two indicesgfrom
-among the. Dow Jones IndustrialAv-
erage, the S&P 500 index and the
NYSE compositeindex are headed
downward.
Luckily, this year it is a "heads I
win, tails I win" situation because
both the San Francisco 49ers and
the Baltimore Ravens can trace their
roots back to the original National
Football League.
From 1967, the year Green Bay
(NFL) won the first Super Bowl,
through 1989, when the San Fran-
cisco 49ers (NFL) won, the market


was up after 16 old NFL teams won,
and down six of seven times after
old AFL teams prevailed. The only
time the indicator failed was after the
Oakland Raiders won in 1984, and
that year the S&P 500 rose just 1.4
percent.
Despite being right about 80 per-
cent of the time overall, when the
Giants beat the Patriots (17-14) in
2008 the S&P careened downward by
38.49 percent and the financial crisis
was off and running.
Yet, there is a modicum of statisti-
cal data that correlates market aber-
rations with certain calendar events.
For example, the so-called January
effect, where stock prices supposedly
increase during the month of Janu-
ary.
Sporting an accuracy rate of almost
90 percent, the recurrent nature of
this anomaly suggests that the mar-
kets are.not efficient. The definition
of market efficiency is that such phe-
nomenon should not exist. Hmm...
the Dow was up 6.2 percent in Janu-
'aty', the S&P ws'iisp 5.3 percent and
the'Nasdaq 4 percent.
Before you start placing trades con-
sider that 20 years ago David Lein-
weber, a visiting economist at Caltec,
determined that butter production in
Bangladesh had a statistically sig-
nificant correlation (an r-squared of
99 percent) with the S&P 500 index.
And he still receives requests for cur-
rent butter production numbers.

Every year we celebrate the 100th day of school at Trenton Elementary School.
The fourth grade team has always done a community project to help those in need.
One year we sent over 500 water bottles to Haiti. Another year we donated over 200
cans to the local food pantry. Last year we donated over $100 dollars to the Senior
Center here in Gilchrist County.
This year students were asked to bring in $1 to raise money for the Education,
Foundation of Gilchrist County.
Students exceeded their goal and were able to donate $100 dollars to the Education
Foundation. .
Julie Thomas, president of the Foundation; came to school and spoke with the
students and accepted the-money on behalf of the Education Foundation.
Great job T.E.S. 4th graders!

FHSAA embraces new guidelines


Dr. Roger Dearing, executive di-
rector of the Florida High School
Athletic Association, issued the fol-
lowing statement in response to new
guidance. from the federal govern-
ment regarding schools' obligation to
provide equal opportunity to students
with disabilities who wish to partici-
pate in extracurricular athletics. The
guidance, issued by the U.S. Depart-
ment of Education's Office for Civil
Rights, urges school districts to work
with community organizations to in-
crease athletic opportunities for stu-
dents with disabilities.
Dearing said: "Florida has been
ahead of the curve for several years,
and we fully embrace the steps sug-
gested by the federal government.
In the past few years we have added
some adaptive sports to the athletic
activities offered at member schools,
and we look forward to working with
schools, districts and most impor-
tantly student-athletes with disabil-
ities and their parents to provide ev-
ery. reasonable opportunity for them
to experience the joy and benefits of
athletic competition. Wherever and


whenever possible, we want every
student to have the opportunity to be
a part of the team, because providing
access to athletic programs for stu-
dents with disabilities certainly adds
value to' their overall educational ex-
\perience. If this new guidance helps
just one more student become a stu-
dent-athlete, it will be worth the ef-
fort."
The new federal guidance letter
(available at http://www2.ed.gov/
about/offices/list/ocr/letters/col-
league-201301-504.pdf) provides
examples of the types of reasonable
modifications that schools .may be
required to make to existing policies,
practices or procedures for students
with disabilities who otherwise are
athletically talented enough to com-
pete. The U.S. Department of Educa-
tion said examples of such modifica-
tions could include allowing a visual
cue alongside a starter pistol so a stu-
dent with a hearing impairment can
compete in track, or waiver of a rule
requiring a "two-hand touch" finish
in swim events to accommodate a
one-armed swimmer.

So, have you heard
about the man whose
wife wanted him to send
away his oldest son,
born of a previous rela-
tionship,. and leave him
without any inheritance,
or what about the case
'of sibling rivalry so se-
vere that.a brother was
-kidnapped and left for
'dead? No, this wasn't
on the morning news,
these stories are actually recorded in
, Genesis, the Biblical book of begin-
nings!
While every generation thinks
that its struggles are unique, a quick
-browse through the scriptures tells
another story. Interestingly enough,
,the two examples given here have
. something in common that contiiiiues
to be a struggle in today's culture,
Abraham, Sarah, and Ishmael, and
"Joseph and his bmithers both be-
longed to blended familic..
- Webster's dictionary defines the
-word "blend" as: "to combine into
-an integrated whole...to produce a
harmonious effect." This sounds easy
enough, if you are following a favor-
ite recipe, but for those working to-
' ward "blending" a family, the task is
\ nothing but simple, and rarely is the
result insiantl% harmonious!
The "insider/outsider" dynamic is a
unique characteristic in stepfamilies.
The "insiders" are those biologically
related, while obviously the "outsid-
ers" are those that are not. This invis-
ible line drawn between the two in a
stepfamily home becomes a fault line
under stress, the division will almost
,always come down to this factor.
Understanding that this is a normal
>phenomenon helps .:stepfamilies then
,take the next steps in conflict resolu-
_tion instead of getting side-tracked
by this issue.-
Loyalty issues are also distinct for

Stepfamilies, loyalty
to children over the
new spouse, as well
as a, child's loyalty
to the absent parent.
Children are naturally
torn between their
parents, even if no
obvious hostility ex-
ists, and loyalty to the
biological parent who
is not in the home is
often disguised as
resistance to a stepparent's author-
ity. If these issues are ignored, they
will erode the marriage relationship,
which is critical to the success of the
family as a whole.
Ron Deal; founder of the Success-
ful Stepfamily Ministry, encourages
stepfamilies to "cook" a stepfamily
with the idea of a crock-pot, not ,a
microwave. Crock-pots work with
two primary elements: time and low
heat. One study suggests that it takes
an average of seven years for a blend-
ed family to integrate successfully.
When it comes to building a relation-
ship with stepchildren, stepparents
should let the child set the pace for
the relationship in terms of affection
and authority asserted by the step-
parent. Trying to rush or force this
relationship will typically not bring'
desired results.
It is estimated that 1 in 3 Ameri-'
cans are currently in a step-relation-
ship...in fact 42% of all adults in
America are in a step-relationship of
some kind. To be sure, blended fami-
lies have an additional measure of
stress and problems that are unique to
each family situation, but just as He
did for the families of Abraham and
Joseph, God has a plan and a purpose
for our lives and our families...be-
cause every heart matters! (For more

their families. Then they race the cars
in competition. The cars are powered
by gravity and run down a track. Ev-
ery Cub Scout in Pack 406 will de-
sign and build his own "grand prix".

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

INFORMATION
This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible
Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real.
estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn
income.
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either
a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed
agent or contractor, must file each year, Property owners who
lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal
property be reported each yar. to the Property Appraiser's
office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has
determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the
form is not applicable, return itwith an explanation; Either way,
the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your.
obligation to file.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible
Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the
Property Appraiser's Office. '
Q. What if I have, no assets to report? Do I still have to file a
return?
A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out
items 1 through 9 on the return, and attach an 'explanation of
why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and
rental units have some assets to report even if it is only supplies,
rented equipment or household goods.
Q. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return?
A. Yes, if you were not in business on January 1 of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
1) .On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value .of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the'
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.

$25,000 Tangible Personal
Property Exemption

In order to' receive this new exemption, ydu must
file a Tangible Personal Property Return by April
1, unless an exemption has been granted.

Tangible Property Return shall be considered an
application for the exemption and will be applied
to the, first $25,000 of assessed value for the TPP
account.


HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS
File the original return with this office (with name and
account number preprinted), as soon as possible before
April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return..
Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any
equipment that miay have been "Physically Removed".
List those items in the appropriate space on your return.
* If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule
that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your
complete return.
Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as
last year".
It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of
assets since depreciation on each item may vary.
Please include your estimate of fair market value and
the original cost of, the item on your return. They are
important considerations in determining an accurate
assessment.
Additional information regarding filing is provided-in
the instructional section of the return itself.
If you sell your business,go out of business, or move
to'a new location, please inform, this office. It will enable
us to keep timely, accurate records.

Tangible Personal Property please contact:

Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is
responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient
property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January 1 would be responsible for
the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to
avoid problems in this area.
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be.sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.
Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
A. Whether fully 'depreciated in your accounting records or
not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Db I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they muit be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must
be filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature,
you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is
required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO
RETURN IS FILED.

When is Candy Dangerous?


When it is Used to Flavor Tobacco!


Tobacco companies are using candy and fruit flavors
to sweeten their products and make them

Jim Surrency was the guest speaker for the Character Council
Gilchrist County's kick-off breakfast meeting.


Character Council


kick-off breakfast


deemed a success


By Geneva Cornwell
A sense of electrical excitement
filled the air for those who attended
the annual Character Council "Kick-
off Breakfast," held on January 29th.
There was a combination of 11
agencies, organizations, clubs,
schools and churches represented by
all who were present.
Everyone anticipated each minute
of meeting someone new, and serv-
ing themselves from the Wonderful
variety of breakfast buffet goodies.
Afterwards, there was an inspiring
talk given by the Council's charter
president (2002 -2005), Dr. Jim Sur-
rency.
Dr. Surrency spoke of how "quick-
ly things change in our society, and
the world, because of technology, but
the important thing which remains


stable and unchangeable is character,
better known as values, such as the
values of responsibility, virtue, hon-
or, cooperation, and compassion, just
to name a few."
The 90 minutes of great fellowship
during the breakfast produced memo-
rable moments in understanding more
profoundly, the importance of teach-
ing and learning good character.
' There are no monetary dues, an-
nual or monthly, associated with any-
one who becomes a. member of the
Character Council, just a willingness
to cooperatively work with others,
while being a part of the adventure of
spreading the good news that charac-
ter determines success.
The next general meeting will be
held at the Trenton Library, at 10
a.m., on Tuesday, Feb. 26.


Jim Surrency is shown talking with Gilchrist County Superin
Robert Rankin, and Clerk of Court Todd Newton.

Card of Thanks

Dear Friends,
We wish to thank each and every
one of you who recently became, and
added to, a part of our lives.
Carmen was such a talented per-
son. Some are just now seeing it. She
was an artist, making, painting, and
drawing objects, sewing like a pro-
fessional, cooking like a chef, and
her "green thumb" was busy until the
end. While she was able, her chick-
ens knew to lay those eggs, and other
animals certainly.knew she cared.
Her family knew the love that ex-
tended to her mother, husband, chil-
dren, grandchildren, and great-grand-
sons.
Thank you from the family of Car-
men Blake.
