Roux files appeal

Civil suit has already cost Gilchrist County over $2K


By Carrie A. Mizell
Former candidate for Gilchrisi
County Sheriff, Robert Roux filed
a Notice of Appeal on Friday in his
civil lawsuit against current sheriff,
Robert "Bobby" Schultz III and the
Gilchrist County Canvassing Board.
Thus far, Roux's civil lawsuit
has cost Gilchrist County $2,010.05
in attorney's fees, according to
Clerk of Court Todd Newton. On
Tuesday, Newton said that the
county just received it's first bill for
$2,010.05 from Ronald A. Labasky, a
Tallahassee attorney for his services
in the matter.
Circuit Judge Toby S. Monaco
dismissed Roux's civil lawsuit on
January 10, 2013. but Roux had 30
days to file an appeal, which his
Jacksonville-based attorney John S.
Winkler did last week..
In November 2012, Roux filed a
Complaint to Contest the November
6, 2012 Gilchrist County Sheriff
General Election. Attorneys for
Bobby Schultz followed up by filing a
Motion to Dismiss on December 10,
2012.
After listening to attorneys rep-
resenting all parties, Judge Monaco
considered the arguments and found
the complaint failed to "state a cause
of action upon which relief may be
granted."
Roux sought to have Schultz, who
was successfully elected sheriff in
the General Election, determined in-
eligible pursuant to Section 102.168
(3 i(b) of the Florida Statutes, for not
being a resident of Gilchrist County
at the time of qualifying. Roux's at-
torney, John S. Winkler argued Telli
vs. Broward County. in support of his
contention that a residency require-
ment can be added to the constitu-
tional qualifications for office. Roux's
attorney also argued that applying
the "qualified elector" clause to the
time of taking office is illogical, as
that view would be inconsistent with
that portion of the oath that requires a
candidate to presently affirm that the
candidate "has qualified for no other
public office in the state, the term of
which office or any part thereof runs
concurrent %with that of the office he
or she seeks."
Schultz's attorney Mark Herron
sought dismissal of the action with
prejudice.

In this case, Roux's attorney had to
establish two elements for his cause
of action: A'residency requirement
for the county office of sheriff at the
time of qualifying and that a failure
to establish residency at qualifying is
sufficient to disqualify the successful
candidate.
Roux's attorney argued that an
oath clause referencing the county
where one is a qualified elector, re-
quires a candidate to fill in the blank
space with the name of the county in
Florida that he or she is a registered
voter at that point in time. Schultz re-
sided in Levy County when he swore
oath but placed Gilchrist County in
the blank.
Judge Monaco, stated that the oath
at issue is a general template used
as part of the qualifying package for
nomination or election to a number
of offices.
However, Rou 's attorney argued
that reading the "qualified elec-
tor" clause in the oath in the future
tense (that is. that he will be quali-
fied to take office if elected),. renders
the "single office" clause in the oath
(an affirmation in the present tense)
meaningless, and that therefore the
clauses should be reconciled so that
they each apply in the present tense.
Judge Monaco found that this ar-
gument had no merit.
"This is a clear requirement which
exists at the time of qualifying, and
which prevents people from qualify-
ing for more than one office," Judge
Monaco stated. "However, Plaintiff
[Roux ] does not point out any statute
or constitutional provision which sets
forth a residency or qualified elector
requirement applicable to the time of
qualifying as a candidate as opposed
to the time of holding office. He only
argues that because the "single of-
fice" portion of the oath applies to the
time of qualifying, that the "qualified
elector" portion of the oath should
likewise.'"
The Florida Supreme Court has
explicitly stated that the language
"he is qualified", in the oath that
reads more fully: "he is qualified un-
der the Constitution and the laws of
Florida to hold the office for which
he desires to be nominated", means
the candidate "has the qualifications
for the office for which he desires to
be nominated", means the candidate
"has the qualifications for the office
to be made applicable when elected
and the term of the office begins."
Judge Monaco cited opinions of
the Florida Division of Elections as
supporting the view that the qualifi-
cations one must possess for public
office, including residency, are ef-
fective at the commencement of the
term of office.
"Dismissal with prejudice to the
action is warranted," Judge Monaco
stated.
Adismissal with prejudice indicates
misconduct on the party who filed the
claim and forbids a party from refil-
ing the case. However, Roux had 30
days to appeal the ruling.
After the Notice of Appeal pa-
perwork was filed on Friday. with.
the Gilchrist County Clerk's Office,
Lyndsay Ayers, deputy clerk, said she
sent the Notice of Appeal to the First
District Court of Appeal on Monday
which starts the appeal process.
Ayers said she has 50 days to pre-
pare the index and 110 days to send
the record to Tallahassee, so the ap-
peal will proceed.


Judge calls Trenton officer a



liability, recommends firing


By Carrie A, Mizell
Circuit Judge Stan Griffis rec-
ommended that a Trenton police
officer lose his job, on Friday, after
watching a video showing the offi-
cer Tasering a black man on Row-
land Boulevard.
Officer Brit Combs maintains
that he felt threatened by the man
and was within the City of Tren-
ton's protocol for use of force
when he pulled out his Taser and
shot 26-year-old Martrice Parham
during a November 15, 2012 inci-
dent.
Trenton Police Chief Jim Raven
said on Monday that he fully, sup-
ports his officer and would have
done the same thing himself if
faced with a similar situation.
"The judge did not want to
speak 'with me on Friday," Chief
Raven said. "So he called the as-
sistant state attorney back in and
told him to tell me that [Combs] is
a 'liability to the city and should
be fired.'"
According to Christine Ste-
phens, assistant public defender
for the eighth judicial circuit, Of-
ficer Combs has had three formal
complaints filed against him since
October 2012, all of which Chief
Raven investigated and found un-
warranted.
-"Where there's smoke, there's
usually fire," Stephens said on
Monday
HAfer spending three months in
the Gilchrist County Jail, Martrice
Parham \\ as released on Friday af-
ter Judge Griffis granted a motion
to suppress, which excluded the
video footage taken at the scene
as potential evidence in the case.
Without the evidence. Assistant
State Attorney Robert Willis opt-
ed to drop the two felony charges
brought against Parham, which in-
cluded Possession of Cocaine with
Intent to Distribute and Tampering
With or Fabricating Physical Evi-
dence.
Judge Griffis was reportedly so
disturbed by the video taken from
the scene that he told Willis, he
never wanted to see Officer Combs


in his courtroom again, for any rea-
son.
In Parham's arrest report, Officer
Combs stated that he was on patrol
just after midnight on November 15,
driving east on NE Rowland Boule-
vard when he saw a black male in the
road carrying an open, alcoholic bev-
erage, which is in violation of City
Ordinance No. 2012-01.
As Combs rounded the slight cor-
ner at 75 NE Rowland Boulevard, he
recalls Parham looking at him before
proceeding to walk into a residential
driveway, where he stood four feet off
the citl street After cornfirming that
Parham was holding a large can of
beer, Combs asked Parham to come
to the front of the patrol car. which he
reportedly did. When Combs asked
for identification, Parham said that it
was in the house and he would have
to go get it. Parham then began walk-
ing away from the officer and toward
the house.
Despite Combs verbal command
of, "Get the f--- over here!" which is
clearly audible on the tape. Parham
continued walking toward the .front
door of the home.
"He opposed the lawful orders,"
Combs stated.
At that point, Parham reportedly
threw down his beer can and ran be-
hind a bush near the front door of the


home, where Combs saw him throw
something before emerging from be-
hind the bush and attempting to go
inside the home.
"Fearing that I would encounter ag-
gressive resistance if I did not imme-
diately detain Parham, I deployed my
Taser," Combs stated. "At that point I
was able to handcuff Parham."
Combs then searched through the
bushes until he found a prescription
bottle containing three plastic bags of
cocaine. Combs believes he intended
to sell the cocaine based on the in-
dividual packaging. As for his use
of force w ith the Taser;,Combs said
on Monday that he drew his Taser
in fear, recognizing the fact that he
had zero control over the situation
and needed to regain it: After the
case was dropped, Combs questioned
whether Judge Griffis even read the
arrest report.
"The video is a very narrow view
of what happened," Combs said. "I
don't believe the judge understood
all the factors of the case."
After talking with Combs about the
arrest and watching the video, Chief
Raven conceded that Combs did use
bad judgment on his choice of lan-
guage during the incident," but he
feels like his officer took necessary
steps in protecting his own safety.
"I could have had an officer in


a body bag," Chief Raven said.
"The judge sits on a bench, I doubt
he's ever rode with an officer out
on the streets."
The assistant public defender
maintains that Officer Combs
clearly has a problem with use
of force, citing not only the three
formal complaints filed against
Combs, but also his own arrest on
January 4, 2013. Public records
confirmed that 24-year-old Brit
Combs ot Trenton was arrested by
a Gilchrist County Sheriff's dep-
uty-on January 4, 2013 for dating
\ violence. but no charges vere ever
filed against the Trenton police of-
ficer.
"I think there is a major prob-
lem with this officer and his use of
force," Christine Stephens said. "I
represent all of Gilchrist County,
so I know that the black commu-
nity feels harassed by this officer.
People of all economic and racial
backgrounds think he is a rude, in-
timidating, liar."
At press time. it was unclear
if the Trenton City Commission
would discuss the latest use of
force claims brought against Of-
ficer Brit Combs, or Judge Stan
Griffis' recommendation that he
be fired at an upcoming city coun-
cil meeting.

Deadline is Friday for sewer

connection special rates
Submitted
. The Fanning Springs sewer project is progressing on schedule. The sewer
treatment plant is in the final stages of completion and the city's main sewer
lines have been installed. Commercial Industrial Construction (CIC) will be
installing sewer connection lines for those properties which are included in
Phase 1 and have qualified for connection under the CDBG grant program.
For those who did not qualify under the grant program, special rates are avail-
able for the connection to the sewer system by CIC if arrangements are made
through City Hall by the deadline of February 15, 2013. The same deadline
applies for those commercial customers who wish to take advantage of the
special pricing through CIC.
Whether property owners in Phase 1 choose to connect to the system them-
selves or have CIC handle the connection and decommissioning of the septic
tanks, the requirement to connect to the sewer system is mandated and con-
nections must be in place by the time the sewer system is operational, which
is expected in April, 2013. Letters have been sent to residents and businesses
in the affected area, but if you have any questions or have not received notifi-
cation, please contact City Hall at 352-463-2855, or in person at 17651 N W

Oh, how I love Valentine's Day.
No, I am not overly attached to hearts
or expect a romantic evening out with
my beau.
Valentine's Day is the only day of
the year you are allowed to eat all the
chocolate you want without anybody
looking down their nose at you. It
truly doesn't matter.if you are a little
on the chunky side, like me, or as thin
as a rail, this is the one and only holi-
day when its just fine to over indulge
a fierce sweet tooth.
So, in honor of this, oh
so chocolate holiday, I
have a wonderful recipe
which includes chocolate
and peanut butter.
Oh yeah, it's a home-
made treat that tastes very
similar to a Reese'sTW Pea-
nut Buttercup. Now, tell me, is their
anything better than a Reese'sm ?
Our daughter, Carrie passed this
recipe on to me. I ha% e to tell you this
one would not only be good for Val-
entine's Day but ai any event where
candy is served.
It doesn't matter how you deco-
rate it or what shape it is cut in this is
truly a.very easy candy to make and it
turns out no matter the weather.







(Almost Reese's)


3 sticks margarine
(Butter will make this even richer)
18 ounce jar creamy peanut butter
1 pound or 5 cups confectioners sug-
ar
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
12:ounce package semi sweet choco-
late chips .

Melt two sticks of margarine. Thor-
oughly combine it with peanut butter,
sugar and graham cracker crumbs.
Press into lightly greased baking
dish or pan. Use a 9x13 pan
or a little larger, remember,
that the larger the pam the
thinner the bar will ,be. I
used a 12x15 pan which
worked out ,just )about
right.,;
Melt last stick of marga-
rine and add chocolate chips on top of
the stove in a .heavy bottom pot over
medium low heat, stirring often or
melt in microwave. The microwave
melting directions are on the back of
the chocolate chip bag.
Spread melted chocolate on top of
peanut butter mixture. Chill the can-
dy for 20 to 25 minutes then cut into
1 inch squares or cut out with with
small cookie cutters. I used a small
heart shaped cutter for valentine's
day. Then chill again for about one
hour or overnight before serving.
This candy' can be topped with
colored sprinkles or chopped 'roasted
salted peanuts before it is chilled.
It would be wonderful served at a
shower or any social event no matter
what time of year it is.

Which Church Did Columbus Attend?
(Kent Heaton)


The year 1492 is indelibly stamped on the minds of all
schoolchildren as they learned the history lesson of the
voyages of Christopher Columbus with three ships: the
Santa Maria, the Pinta and the Nina. While Columbus was
not the first person on the continents of North and South
America, his voyage opened the flood gates for discovery,
, conquest and settlement. Born around 1451 his life would
change the face of the known world to a global
understanding of our planet. He died in May of 1506 in
Valladolid, Spain.
It was not until his latter life 'that Columbus looked deeper
into matters of religion. Turning the pages of history to the
year of his voyage to America would beg the question of
which church would he be a member of in 1492? Pope
Innocent VIII had just been elected head of the Roman
Catholic Church in the year of his great voyage. Columbus
was in fact Catholic and believed his mission of sailing the
oceans was to spread Christianity. But were there other
churches that he would have known about in his lifetime?
The answer is there were no Protestant churches in
existence during the lifetime of Columbus. Martin Luther
would not begin the period of reformation until he nailed
his 95 theses on the door of All Saints church in
Wittenberg, Germany in 1517 (nine years after the death of
.Columbus).
From the simple act of protest Martin Luther began a time
of reform that created every church that stands beneath the
Protestant flag. Christopher Columbus could not have been
a member of 99% of the churches we find on every street
corner in America today because they did not exist while he
'lived. There were only two churches that existed in 1492:


the Roman Catholic Church and the New Testament church.'
The Catholic Church was the apostate body of people who
rejected the New Testament as authority. The New
Testament church had been in existence since Peter (an
apostle; not a Pope) and the other apostles declared the -,.a,
of salvation on the Day of Pentecost in the city of Jerusalem
(Acts 2).
The New Testament church has never failed to be in
existence since the work of the eafly disciples. It was called
by many names in the New Testament: "church" (Acts
2:27); "the Way' which they call a sect" (Acts 24:14);.
"flock" or "church of God" (Acts 20:28); "saints which
are at Ephesus and the faithful in Christ Jesus"
(Ephesians 1:1); "churches of Galatia" (Galatians 1:2); and
"churches of Christ" (Romans 16:16). Columbus was not a
disciple of the New Testament church but was a Catholic.
No Protestant church can trace their lineage to the First
Century. Each one was begun by a man and is less than five
hundred years old.
Christopher Columbus should have belonged to the church
Jesus died for as well as each person today. There are as
many flavors of churches today as there is ice cream in an
ice cream shop. But Jesus only died for one church His
(Matthew 16:18; Acts 20:28). We must not believe-that a
'sign out front' will make us the church Jesus gave His
blood for. Our obligation to God is to follow the authority of'

I am serving a religion of man and not of God. Is the Bible
my only source of authority? If not, I am serving the will of.
man and not of God (Matthew 15:13-14).

*--John's--)omments
By John M. Ayers


On Saturday evening, our immedi-
ate family came by the house for din-
ner to celebrate J's birthday and my
birthday. The two birthdays are so
close in February that we celebrate
them together. We have found that it
is best to celebrate them on the week-
end When everyone can take time and
enjoy' a meal together and fellow-
ship.
Dinner at MeMe's and Pap's has
become entertaining, to say the least,
as Allie Claire is now 4, Gus is near-
ing 4 and the walking firecracker with
blue eyes and blonde hair, Whitt, is
15 months. We are so looking for-
ward to our newest granddaughter,
Mattie Ayers' arrival in March;
Our family meals are never dull,
and sometimes we all just sit back
in wonder over how richly thankful
we are to have such a blessed fam-
ily, all with good health. We love our
grandchildren and they have become
the focal point of our lives over the
last few years.
Cindy Jo had asked me what I
.wanted for my 2013 birthday. I was
totally looking forward to having the
entire family over for dinner at the
house for maybe some fish or a pork
,rib. That is my blessing and their at-
tendance is more than I could wish
for.
,On Saturday night we enjoyed a
plentiful dinner of fish, shrimp and
fried steak for the beef people. I had
' forgotten about the pound cake with
strawberries and MeMe's homemade
vanilla ice cream that was so deli-
cious. It was just a great night, having
our family together.
MeMe had decided it was time to

Whitt enjoyed homemade pound
cake and ice cream.
go back to the beach, at Indian Pass
so she surprised me with a birthday
card featuring a date that we would
be 'at the beach to enjoy the warm
weather and hopefully some delicious
seafood this summer. Indian Pass is a
nice little spot on the Forgotten Coast
in Gulf County just this side of Port
St. Joe. And yes, the fishing is good.
Years ago we had an opportunity
to. spend some time out there in late
May. The beach was beautiful and
the kids had a great time. This year
it will be exciting! Allie Claire anid
Gus are already talking about build-
ing castles in the sand.
I hope the weather is good and I
look forward to having the kids take
a little time out of their busy lives to
enjoy themselves at the beach with


to- -e/-J


I kept asking myself that
while out on my bicycle Satur-
day, February 9th. -
I recently learned of two
women that have been diag- .
nosed with cancer, that live in
our community. I have only
met one of them. and just a
couple of times, Marti Allen. I
have not met Bobbie Fike. but
that doesn't mean that I don't
feel for them or their family.
Living in a small town, we
come to know a lot about the
people in our community.
When I learn or hear about
someone being diagnosed with SB
cancer, IValwa)s think man.
what a shaia .whAichl ule st .-. ... .,, o .... *W ,
of us say. Well. I don't want to just say something. I want to do some-
thing.
So I would like to ask the people in our community to pledge a pre-
determined money amount PER mile I ride my bicycle for Marti and
Bobbie. One hundred percent of the money raised will go to Marti and
Bobbie. I hope that the community will show compassion. support and
raise money for local friends in OUR community.
God Bless,

Happy Valentines Day! People all
over the world celebrate Valentine's
Day with many different of expres-
sions of love: some buy candy, or
flowers, or a special dinner at a fa-
vorite restaurant. In fact, the Na-
tional Retail Federation estimates
that Americans alone spent approxi-
mately 17 billion dollars last year on
the Valentine holiday. Why do we go
to so much trouble? According to Dr.
Gary Chapman, love is an emotional
need, not just another emotion. We
all want to love and be loved, but
perhaps what we most need to learn
about love is how to express it in a
language that the other person un-
derstands. In Chapman's book "The
Five Love Languages", he explains
the five basic languages of love:
1. Words of Affirmation: this can
mean words of sincere praise for ef-
forts as well as words of affection
that express positive thoughts toward
someone as a person. ."You are such
a great friend", "Your eyes are beau-
tiful", or "I know that didn't turn out
like you hoped, but I am proud of
how hard you tried."
2. Quality Time: giving a portion of
time and your undivided attention is
a powerful communicator of love to
another person because our lives are
so busy. This doesn't mean simply
being in the same room at the same
time, but has everything to do with
togetherness,- making sure the other
person feels like they are the focus of
your attention.
3. Receiving Gifts: gifts are visible
evidence of emotional love. Perhaps
this explains, the billions spent on.
Valentine's Day. The Greek word
from which we get our English word
gift is "charis" which means grace or
undeserved, for no reason. The beau-
ty of gifts is that they don't have to
be fancy or expensive to be valuable.
A gift says "I care about you" and "I
think you are important". That is the
real treasure.
4. Acts of Service: Loving service
is an internally motivated desire to
give your energy for another. Just
doing something for someone, espe-
cially something they want or need
accomplished is a powerful way to
communicate love. Like quality time,
it requires a portion of our life set
aside and donated for another, but
acts of service also allows them to be
free of a task or chore.
5. Physical Touch: There is a reason

information.

why parents are encouraged to hold
and cuddle their newborns, touch-
ing is an emotionally powerful way
to communicate love. This is why
we love to give and receive hugs and
why we enjoy a shoulder massage or
a good back scratch, touch makes us
feel loved and accepted.
Although all of the five love lan-
guages sound great, every person has
one or two of these that makes them
feel more loved than the others, and
by nature we speak that language
to others. If we enjoy gifts, we will
probably buy gifts for others. If we
want words of affirmation, we will
likely leave love notes and be very
encouraging verbally. The problem
. comes when the other person doesn't
speak our language, or we aren't
speaking theirs. We may be speak-
ing gifts, but they want some quality
time. Or they may be doing acts of
service for us while we long to hear
them say, "I love you." We must learn
to speak the language of the other
person if we want them to feel loved
by us. We can usually determine our
own language by what we most of-
ten do for another when we want to
show love to them. We can determine
another person's language by asking
their preference and watching what
they do for others. (To learn more,
check out Chapman's book, The Five
Love Languages). These principles
can be applied in friendships and par-
ent-child/teenager as well as roman-
tic relationships. What a great way to
celebrate love, in the language of the
recipient!
Happy Heart Day, because every
one matters!


Blessings,
Angie

ary 1, 2013, there, were four pits for
the students to evaluate. Each pit had

ter, rooting zones, permeability of
the soil, percent of erosion, drainage,
slope and determined the soil order at
various depths.
From that, students ascertained
the best agricultural use for the land.
They also looked at soil conservation
and what the Best Management Prac-
tices would be for the soil in produc-
tion of crops. The teams participating

Log Cabin

Quilters
The LogCabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Feb. 7, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. We got a lot of work done.
We put two new quilts in frames, to
be quilted and looked at fabric that
was brought in. Johnny Johnston, the
Old Sewing Machinel Man. worked
on older sewing machines that.were
brought in. We had several out of
area visitors to the Museum and a
couple stayed for lunch.
, Speaking of lunch, we had chicken
and rice, .pear salad, chicken, collard
greens, cole slaw, baked beans, key
lime pie, brown rice casserole, cake
and more. It was a great lunch and we
enjoyed our visit with the new friends
from Alabama.
Last Monday, a couple of items
were left at the Museum. Thank you
for the fabric, and quilt project. We
enjoy donations of fabric which we
then use to make items for the Mu-
seumn ;
We have a new flag flying in front
of 'the Museum. Thank you Central-
Florida Electric for your assistance.
The old flag was taken to the AmVets
in Bronson to be destroyed properly.
We started last week off with news
from the, State Department of Trans-
portation that they could not help us
with new signs on 27, as we do not
get any money from any government
agency. The Levy County Road De-
partment and 'the Levy County Tour-
ism Department came to our rescue.
We have brand new signs that we are
in the process of putting up. Thank
you so much, the signs are fantastic.
We'll have new signs on -either end'
of CR 134 (NW 10th Ave) that fit in
with the old sign:'. Rpiittifftiigofthd" i

__________________


PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT FOR
VETERANS AGE 65 AND OLDER WITH COMBAT
RELATED DISABILITY
Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall
receive a discount from the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the
veteran owns and resides in if the disability'was combat related, and the veteran was
honorably discharged upon separation from military service. The discount shall be in a
percentage equal to the percentage of the veteran's permanent, service-connected
disability as determined by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify
for the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the county
property appraiser, by March 1, proof of residency at the time of entering military
dservice,,an official letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs stating
the percentage of the veteran's service-connected disability and such evidence that
reasonably Identifies the disability as combat related, and a copy of the veteran's
honorable discharge.


TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY
Tangible Personal Property returns must be filed no
later than April 1st. Failure to file-a return will result in'
a penalty and an assessment will be made as
provided by Florida Law. Tangible Personal Property
Includes property such as business furniture and
fixtures, machinery and equipment, household goods,
and personal effects. (Florida residents are exempt
from the tax on household goods and personal effects
in their homestead.) The deadline for charitable and
qualified non-profit organizations eligible as such
exemption is March 1st. All others must file by April
1st.


AGRICULTURAL
(GREENBELT)
FILINGS
All owners or lessees of agricultural
lands who desire agricultural
classifications for tax purposes on
their property must file an agricultural
application with the Appraiser
between January 1 and March 1.
Agricultural classifications are
automatically renewed.


Additional Homestead Exemption
How does the "double homestead" work?
The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value
of a property used as a primary residence by a Florida resident by
$25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to
$25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000.
For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that
portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable
value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable
value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000).
This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed
value upon which school taxes are based. Also, It does not reduce or
otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp-
tions. It Is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you have
the Homestead Exemption already.


HOMESTEAD EXEMPTION IS NOT
TRANSFERABLE -- A NEW
APPLICATION MUST BE FILED FOR
ANY CHANGES
Information will be required from all persons applying for exemptions to
determine their residency status. If Husband or Wife is filing for one or
both, residency documentation will be required for both.
We are at your service and will be most happy
to assist you in any way.
Our office is located in the Gilchrist County Courthouse.

flavored or Not, Smokeless Tobacco is

Not Yfarmless Tobacco!

Smokeless tobacco can give you really bad breath
and discolored teeth. This will not help anyone's social life!

Smokeless tobacco's direct and repeated contact with the gums causes
the gums to retede and become diseased, leading to loose teeth.
Vany forms of smokeless tobacco also contain sugar. This mixes
with the plaque on the teeth to form acid that eats away at,
tooth enamel to cause cavities and chronic painful sores.

Cancer of the mouth (Including the lip, tongue, and cheek) and throat
cancer occur most often at the spot in the mouth where
the tobacco is held. Surgical removal of cancer is often needed,
and parts of the face, tongue, cheek, or lip must often be removed too.

for more information on the dangers
of smokeless tobacco, including snus, contact:
