Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
responded to 7200 SE 82nd Lane in
reference to a structure fire and a pos-
sible suicide.
Deputy Cliffton Dasher and Dep-
uty Amanda Colson arrived at the
scene to assist .the fire department
and to conduct the initial investiga-
tion concerning the possible suicide
attempt.
Deputy Dasher was immediately

Dasher striking him in the leg. Both
deputies deployed their Tasers and

Crawford shows grand champion at


the Florida State Fair


Kaylee Crawford showed the grand champion steer at the Florida State Fair.


By Carrie A. Mizell
If she hadn't been holding on to
her steer, Kaylee Crawford said she
just might have run a few laps around
the show ring at the Florida State Fair
last week, after her steer "Snowball"
was named Grand Champion.
It's been a big senior year for Kay-
lee, who in October was crowned
Trenton High School's homecoming
queen.
2013 marks Kaylee's sixth year
showing steers at the Florida State
Fair. This year, she was one of nine
Gilchrist County students to com-
pete in the Steer Futurity Show at the
Florida State Fair in Tampa.
Kaylee is the daughter of Doug


and Michelle Crawford of Bell, she
showed a Charolais Cross produced
by Carlton and Carlton of Arcadia,
that weighed in at 1,280 pounds.
Trenton has not had a grand cham-
pion winner at the Florida State Fair
since 2010 when Katie Quincey took
the honors.
Trenton's Kacee Langford's steer
took first in it's class this year. Lang-
ford later won first place in the senior
showmanship competition and third
in Champion of Champions. The top
four senior exhibitors in each youth
show competed in the contest which
included skill-a-thon stations on beef,
rabbit, chickens, dairy cattle and


sheep. Kacee had to identify parts
of these animals, determine carcass
grades, identify byproducts, label
milk products and show a sheep.
Cody Norton, a member of River-
side Wranglers 4-H Club won third
in senior showmanship and Colton
Rucker, also of Riverside Wranglers
4-H Club, placed second in interme-
diate showmanship.
Unlike the Suwannee River Fair's
steer show, students must submit an
application with entry fee in June to
participate in the Florida State Fair.
The first 75 to enter are then selected
to come in August and attend a day
long ethics course. That afternoon


each student is allowed to select the
calf they will bring home through a
lottery process. All of the cows are
from Florida producers. Students
then purchase their calves and take
them home to feed and take care of
for approximately 183 days.
In the mean time, students have
to complete a series of tasks includ-
ing writing a thank you letter to the
producer, obtaining a State of Florida
Ethics Certificate, completing two
pre-fair talks to the community on
the Futurity program, completing a
record book and recruiting new par-
ticipants.

COOKING AND


Where's the beef?
Did you know the largest cow calf
operation in the United States is lo-
cated about 7 miles from Orlando?
The Deseret Ranch covers an area of
almost 300,000 acres and has over
44.000 he.id of cattle.
Many of Florida pioneer families
were cattle people. Cattle were ex-
ported from Cowford, now known as
Jacksonville, and ports further south
for Cuba, back in the early days of
statehood. Cow hunters and their cow
dogs were often in the woods round-
ing up nearly wild cracker cattle to
brand and drive to market.
Until 1949, cattle had free range
all over the state and cow hunts
were common. In 1949, the legisla-
tors passed the Florida Fence Law.
The law made cattle owners keep
their cattle within fenced pastures or
woods. Some are surprised to lear
that there were white men in Florida:
known as Cow Hunters long before
there were Cowboys out west.
Where's the beef? In the pot on the
stove.
I don't know of many comfort
foods any better on a cold winter's
day than pot roast. We enjoyed this
week's recipe for pot roast Monday
evening. The roast was quite good
and economical, while the gravy was
very simple to make. This recipe is a
good one for a beginning cook. Just
follow the steps and you will have a
wonderful roast in about three hours.
The gravy would be good served
over rice or noodles. Actually, I
cooked a pot of grits to go with the
roast and gravy and it was mighty
fine.





1 (2 to 2 V pound) boneless chuck
roast
Salt and pepper, -
1 tablespoon vegetable oil .
1/2 cup water
2 medium potatoes, peeled and quar-
tered
3 carrots, cut into 1-inch pieces
1 medium onion, cut in slices
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour


CARRYING' ON


teaspoon salt
teaspoon black pepper

Salt and pepper room temperature
roast. Heat oil in large roasting pot
and brown roast on both sides. Add
water and cover. Cook roast over,
medium low heat (simmer) for 2
hours. Add potatoes, carrots, onion
and garlic. Cover and simmer for an-
other 30 minutes or until vegetables
are tender. I had to lift the roast out
of my pot to put the vegetables in so
they were all in the broth. I added the
roast back to the pot laying it on top
of vegetables.
After the vegetables are tender re-
move them and roast from pot and
place them in another pan and cover
with foil and place in warm oven un-
til ready to serve.
Pour up the broth and oil from the
original pan. After, the broth has a
few minutes to sit, the oil will come
to the top. Skim off 2 tablespoons of
oil and add back to the pot. Turn heat
to medium and add flour to oil. Cook,
stirring often until the flour becomes
a dark golden brown, this will take 8
to 10 minutes or so.
Addenough water to the remain-
ing roast broth to make 1 cup of liq-
uid. Pour the broth into the flour oil
mixture and whisk or stir until a thick
gravy forms. Serve gravy with roast.
.This recipe makes 6 servings.

for God

A lot of Christians today have be-
come complacent with the ways of
the world. If we don't have our fami-
lies in church and in God's word, we
will be allowing the world to set the
example for our kids and grandkids.
We have stood back and allowed
the Bible and prayer to be removed
from our schools, and now some of
the churches in our area don't have
the time to give God three hours of
worship each week. If the churches
aren't feeding their flock the world is
going to. What really upset me was,
my husband and I were on our way
home from church on Sunday night
(Feb. 3rd), and there to my. surprise
and disappointment was a big screen
at the side of a church showing the
Superbowl. Some of you will say
they weren't in God's house, well
you know what, they were standing
on Holy Ground. I know that the Su-
per Bowl show has a lot of worldly
vices advertised and the half-time
show has dancing and music that is of
the world. If you choose to watch that
in your own home, that is between
you and God, but when you choose
to show such on Holy Ground and
on the Sabbath Day, you need to ask
yourself if you are bringing the world
to, a place of worship. People may say
times have changed, but the word of,
God has never changed. James 4:4
says "Anyone who chooses to be a
friend of the world becomes an en-
emy of God." (NIV) We as Christians
can't have one foot on the world and
one in the kingdom of God. Chris-
tians all over, but especially in our
area, need to take a stand for God and
keep our house of worship sacred.

Brit Combs
I am writing in response to the ar-
ticle about the Trenton Officer, Brit
Combs. Honestly, I am disgusted
with the fact that the judge and the
public defender spoke such negativ-
ity about that officer.
I have been stopped by that of-
ficer for speeding. Officer Combs
was friendly and professional. He
introduced himself, told me who he
worked for and explained that I was
going too fast. I think I was going
almost 20 miles over the limit com-
ing from Chiefland through Tren-
ton. I think Officer Combs realized
that I was having a bad day because
he asked if I was ok. I lied and told
him that I was okay. I couldn't find
my insurance or my registration and
I started to freak. Officer Combs
cracked a smile and told me that ev-
erything was okay and that he could
check it on his computer. After just
a few moments the officer returned
and handed my ID back to me. He
asked me to slow down and told me
that he hopes my day gets better. Of-
ficer Comb's kindness stuck with me
and after he blocked traffic so I could
safely drive away I actually felt bet-
ter! I felt that he was real and sincere.
It is embarrassing to admit but I've
been stopped by other officers in
Levy and Gainesville. I feel like most
officers do not care about you or your
feelings. That is not how I felt after
speaking to Officer Combs.
I read the article that you wrote.
I am pretty mad about it! How can
people,pass that kind of judgment on
a police officer? That public defender
does not represent all of Gilchrist
County!. She then says that she speaks
for the black community? How can
she say things like that? I question if
she is even from Gilchrist County!
How dare she talk down about this
young officer! I was not there when
this man was arrested but it sounds
like Officer Combs did the right thing!
Folks need to learn that when a offi-
cer tells you to do something, you do
it! Your article said that this man was
trying to go inside a house, I bet there
was a gun inside! Don't most folks
in Gilchrist have guns? And why is
race even mentioned in this? Is it be-
cause that is the only thing that can
be thought of? Why can't this officer
shoot this man with his Taser because
he was running towards a house or
because he was hiding behind bushes
doing God knows what? It has to be
about race? Come on!
What people need to think of is
this man was selling cocaine! He is
a drug dealer! Blame the bad guy and
not the police officer who is only try-
ing to help!
I support Officer Combs and I think
many others feel the same way that I
do. I am going to stand up for him
and I hope my letter will get others
to also! God bless you Officer Combs
and all of the Trenton Police Depart-
ment. .

Tipping God
(Kent Heaton)


"Behold a certain man went with a friend into a lace to
eat. After the lunch the waitress brought the bill and the
man, in the sight of his friend, placed a sum of money
beneath his plate. The friend was amazed and asked what
this money is. The man replied that it is the customary thing
to do to place 15% of the bill under the plate. The friend
was confused. A waitress served the man for a few minutes
and he gave her 15% of the bill. His Heavenly Father has
served him all his life, given him every good and perfect
gift and the man is offended when asked to give something
to support the work of his Heavenly Father. Does the man
think more of the waitress than he does of his Lord?"
(Author unknown).
The eternal struggle of man has always been the
ingratitude for what God has done for him every day. Jesus
reminds us that God "makes His sun rise on the evil and
on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust"
(Matthew 5:45). Paul and Barnabas pleaded with the
citizens of Lystra to know the "living God, who made the
heaven, the earth, the sea, and all things that are in them,
who in bygone generations allowed all nations to walk in
their own ways. Nevertheless He did not leave Himself
without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from
heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food
and gladness" (Acts 14:15-17). Selfish man believes that
he has the power and wisdom to produce crops, glean the
fields and harvest the bounty of this earth without the help
of the Lord. His technology gives him a smug feeling of
security that falsely belies the reality that without God man
is nothing (Isaiah 40).
When men exalt their own. superiority they become


unthahkful and futile in their thoughts and their foolish
hearts are darkened by the pride of life (Romans 1:18-23).
Like the man in the story above the view of God is degraded
in contrast to offering to others a tribute of honor. What has
God done for me? Why should I honor God with my life?
While the hard-working individual can expect a monetary
reward for their work how can we deny God His due?
People of God are asked to return the bounty of their
material worth for the glory of God and often a pitiful
measure is begrudgingly torn from their hands.
How much should.I give to the Lord? Tithing was a Jewish
practice removed from God's law under Christ but now
giving comes from the heart (2 Corinthians 9:6-11). Here is
the test of the heart and the hand: given a choice many
people submit the scraps of their wealth and sometimes
begrudge that and worry about how much to give. It is not a
matter of how much we give, it is a matter of how much we
keep. In light. of that comparison how can we view what
God has done for us and we 'do so little? We gladly tip the
waiter 15% and throw a few dollars before God's throne.
It is often said that repaying the debt we owe Christ for His
sacrifice is impossible and many give that way. The amount
is not the question because the Lord sees the heart of man
and in what he trusts (Matthew 6:19-21). Loving God so
much and trusting Him so little to care for our earthly needs
drives our motives for giving (or not giving). The fool of
Luke 12 left all he had on earth when he died because he,
was not rich toward God (Luke 12:13-21). Life is not about
the abundance of things we have, because what we have is
an abundance of God's blessings if we trust in Him.

Tigers open regular season


with 2 district wins


:By Todd Bryant ,
', Trenton baseball opened their
regular season this past week with
'two games on the road. The Tigers
:played the Cedar .Key Sharks, on
Monday the 11th, and the Hawthorne
Hornets, on Thursday the 14th. Both
,games were district contests. ,
Trenton got super pitching against
Ithe Sharks. Three pitchers com-
bined for a one hitter. Senior Dillon
Walsh started his first game as a Tiger
.pitcher. He went three innings with
'five strikeouts and two walks. Shane
Ludovici, another first time starter
:at THS, went the fourth inning with
'one strikeout and no walks. Corbin
'Wiggins, who missed playing last
year due to his personal battle with
,cancer, pitched the fifth inning and
.'struck out all three batters he faced.
The Tiger battery didn't give up any
runs to the Sharks. On the offensive
",side, the Tigers pounded out 14 hits.
Junior Stephen Smith had a big night
going 5 for 5 with a double, 5 runs
and 2 RBI's. Senior Clif Bryant and
junior Kyle Wiggins both had two
hits each and both collected a double,
'.with Bryant getting 4 RBI's. Senior
.Jonathan Smith had 3 stolen bases
and scored three times. Senior Cedric
'Stokes and junior Sam' Gray each had
a double. The Tigers won easily 25-0
,in five innings and began their 2013


regular season with a 1-0 record.
Three days later the Tigers bused
over to Hawthorne to take on the Hor-
nets. The weather did it's best to. co-
operate but the game was played with
a light drizzle for most of the night.
The Tigers needed another win and
started Junior Jonathan Ward, a right
hander, making his first start as a Ti-
ger. Ward performed great, throwing 3
innings, giving up only one unearned
run, on one hit, and one walk while
striking out three. Stephen Smith re-
lieved Ward in the fourth inning and
faced only seven batters over 2 in-
nings, striking out 4, white giving up
no runs, no hits and no walks. The
two Tiger pitchers would combine for
only 68 pitches over 5 innings while
the Tiger offense got heated up again.
In the top of the first inning, with two
out, starting pitcher Ward doubled to
score Stephen Smith to put the Tigers
ahead 1-0. The Tigers would lead
the entire game. Kyle Wiggins later
scored Ward with a single to left field
making the score 2-0. Five Tigers
had two hits Stephen Smith, Jon
Ward, Kyle Wiggins, junior Ozie Par-
rish, and freshman Hamp Cheevers.
Ward and Bryant both had doubles
for the Tigers and Jonathan Smith
once again had 3 stolen bases, his 6th
of the year. The Tigers would score
in four of the five innings, ending the

Sheriff Schultz speaks at


21st Century Parent Night


Submitted
The Bell High School 21st Cen-
tury Program held it's fourth "Par-
ent Night" on February 14th, in
the Bell High Cafeteria. The par-
ent nights are designed to expose
parents to the work and activities
that are conducted in the program
by their students on' a daily basis.
In addition, it is the mission of 21st
Century to try to help equip par-
ents with tools that will better en-
able them to prepare their children
to be successful.
Ms. Dana Collins is the parent li-
aison for the program and as usual
she did a remarkable job of prepar-
ing a program that was incredibly
informative. Speakers included
Officer C.J. who discussed some
serious .behaviors that all parents
and students should keep their eyes
open for. Her main discussion cen-
tered around "cutting," which is a
self destructive behavior undertak-
en by young people under serious'
stress. t,
Sheriff Bobby Schultz was gra-
cious enough to take time from his
busy schedule to speak with the.
attendees. Sheriff Schultz spoke
about the increased presence of
Deputies on all campuses and some
of his other efforts to make the De-
partment more visible and acces-
sible to the residents of Gilchrist
County. Both Officer C.J. and
Sheriff Schultz were well received
and both received high praise from
the crowd for their efforts to keep
us and our children safe.
Mr. Gray Smith, the site direc-

Yoho responds to State

of the Union Address


Submitted
Congressman Ted Yoho attended
last week's State of the Union Ad-
dress. After President Obama's re-
marks, Congressman Yoho responded
with the following statement:
"After experiencing my first State
of the Union, it is evident now more
than ever that our government is di-
vided. We have our work cut out for
as."
"Our Constitution guarantees life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.
It is up to the individual to take a hold
of the opportunities that are available
to every citizen. It is our job as elected


Representatives to protect that docu-'
ment. By doing so, we protect oppor-
tunity for every single American."
"I feel more passionately now than.
ever that we, as the 113th Congress,
can and must come together, not as
Republicans and Democrats but as
Americans. Americans deserve more
than carefully crafted speeches, they'
deserve action."
"I'm proud to be a member of a
House of Representatives, that has,
and will continue to take action
to stop these reckless policies and
champion American values like per-;
sonal responsibility again."

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Feb. 14th, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. We had a great day
visiting with each other and, working
on various projects. We made several
new friends along with visitors from
Wisconsin, Ohio and Canada.
Thursday lunch was delicious
with chicken and rice, fried chicken,
macaroni and cheese, meatballs, acre
peas, cantaloupe, BBQ smoked sau-
sage, cabbage and rutabaga, rice with
sausage and beans, two types of cup-
cakes and more. Yum!
We'll be starting a beginning class
on piecing a quilt top the first of
March. Call for more details.
Bill, Charles and Ed "volunteered"
to replace the metal signs. Now we
wait for the rain to leave, hopefully
not for a long time, so we can paint
the wood. Thanks guys. The signs
are doing their job getting people to
find us.
People are calling for information
about the community yard and craft
sale the first Saturday of each month.
We're hoping this will be a gathering
place for friends and family.
We're located at 10391 NW 10th
Ave (CR 134) and are open Tuesday
through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 3

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 year 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. Ifyou feel the
form is not applicable, return it with 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 I 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, you 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.
S* Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any
equipment that may 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 1 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 I 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. Do 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 must 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.,

Tri County Nursing and Reha-

our best foot forward, and living up
to our motto, "Neighbors helping
Neighbors."
Betty J. Baker, Social Services Di-
rector at Tri County, along with Brad
Groom, Home Health Coordinator
with Nurse on Call, put together a
project to help a local woman and her
family get back to a normal life.
Mrs. Patricia Martin, a former
resident of Tri County, was admit-
ted on October 8, 2012, and started
rehabilitation and training to use her
new prosthetic legs. Mrs. Martin is
a double, below the knee, amputee,
who needs all the help she can get.
Pat feels she was blessed with a
complete wheelchair ramp which al-
lows her access into her home. The
ramp was constructed on January 8,
2013.
Florida Forest Products, of Cross
City, donated all the materials for the
ramp. Jacob Piazza, owner of J&L
Construction Inc., of Chiefland, do-
nated labor. The construction of this
ramp was a wonderful gift to start the
New Year off with.
Pat Martin, her husband, and two
children, are all a part of the Tri
County family and we all wish them
well.
The Martin family expresses their
gratitude to everyone for making this
happen for them. Mrs. Martin has
expressed that she would like to be a
motivator for others who find them-
selves in her shoes.
Pat smiles and tells everyone to
"keep on your toes," and would like
for anyone who needs her encourage-
ment to call her at 352-538-4759.

ming pools when not in use.
COVER skin with clothing or re-
pellent.
Clothing Wear shoes, socks,
and long pants and long sleeves. This
type of protection may be necessary
for people who must work in areas
where mosquitoes are present.
Repellent- Apply mosquito re-
pellent to bate skin and clothing.
Always use repellents according
to the label. Repellents with 30 per-
cent DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon
eucalyptus, and IR3535 are effec-
tive.
Use mosquito netting to protect
children younger than 2 months old.
Tips on Repellent Use
Always read label directions
carefully for the approved usage be-
fore you apply a repellent. ,Some re-
pellents are not suitable for children.

repellents containing oil of lemon
eucalyptus should not be used on

dren younger than two months old.
*-Avoid applying repellents to the
hands of children. Adults should ap-
ply repellent first to their own hands
and then transfer it to the child's skin
and clothing. If additional protec-
tion is necessary, apply a .permethrin
repellent directly to your clothing.
Again, always follow the manufac-
turer's directions.

screens to keep mosquitoes out of
your house.

By Cindy Jo Ayers
Trenton Cemetery has been dis-
cussed at the past several Trenton
City Commissions meetings.
Gene Wiggins, a citizen volunteer,
has worked tirelessly trying to help
,find solutions for the existing prob-
, lems at the cemetery.
. Last month some markers were in-
, stalled to denote the corners of sec-
tions of the property which should
insure proper grave placement in the
future. In the past some graves have
been placed in the wrong area.
During a recent meeting the com-
missioners and City Manager Taylor


Brown discussed the expense, of up-
keep at the cemetery. A spread sheet
was presented that showed the esti-
mated cost of the cemetery.
Brown presented a 2011 survey of
area cemeteries and their plot prices
to the board. Prices in the area range
from the former Trenton price of $150
for a single plot to $1295 in Forest
Meadows Cemetery in Gainesville.
Most of the single plots in this area
such as Newberry, Old Town UMC,
and Orange Hill in Williston are
priced between $300 and $350.
Commissioner Arlene Wilks sug-
gested the plots at Trenton. Cemetery.


be priced at $300 because many peo-
ple are living on fixed incomes.
Prices were discussed at the meet-
ing but it was decided to address the
subject at the upcoming meeting in
March.
At this time plot sales at Trenton
Cemetery are limited to families in
immediate need. Sale of plots for fu-
ture use were suspended a year ago
due to concerns over grave place-
ment.
The last remembered price increase
for plots at the Trenton Cemetery was
1988 when the price was tripled from
$50 to $150.


Plans underway for 2013 Quilt Festival


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Downtown Trenton is adorned
with Quilt Festival banners in prepa-
ration for the 2013 Trenton's Suwan-
nee Valley Quilt Festival which will
be held on Saturday, March 16.
This years event will be a little dif-
. ferent than years past as the craft and
v antique booths will be set up down
Main Street from the traffic light to
the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe
much in the same manor of the Down
Home Days Festival which was held
in Trenton for many years. This por-


tion of Main Street will be closed to
through traffic due to the event.
Quilt groups and guilds from
throughout North Central Florida will
be on hand at the festival displaying
their many beautiful quilts and hand
made items.
This year's festival will have many
beautiful quilts hanging from the
buildings along each side of Main
Street for everyone to enjoy. As well
some 30 craft booths and many an-
tique venders displaying, their collec-
tions.


Musical entertainment will be per-
formed throughout the event by area
groups. Gilchrist County Civic and
schools groups will be supplying
food for the event. Several activities
are planed with the children in mind
including a bounce house, Zippy Pets
and a sand art booth.
Anyone needing further infor-
mation about craft, antique or food
vending call Pat Watson at the Gil-
christ County Chamber office 352-

Congratulations, Colton!


After a, lot of hard work the stu-
dents took their steers back to Tampa
last week where they entered their
animals in the show, by weight gain.
Students also presented a demonstra-
tion on an assigned animal topic,
prepared a poster to be displayed on
the assigned topic, took a written test
on the assigned topic, competed in a
skill-a-thon related to the assigned
topic and finally, took a record book
management written test with math
components. All of these efforts w ere
completed prior to students' showing
their animals in showmanship and
the actual show. Points were earned
for each activity and students were
then paid per point and then a base
price per pound for the animal.
Also at the Florida State Fair. Erin
Jones received a $1000 scholarship
and Hunter Parrish received, a $100
scholarship. Both Jones and Parrish
are members of the Trenton FFA
Chapter.
