Taylor was chosen over a second applicant, Gregory Link, who worked for 25 years, before retiring and moving to the area in 2013.

Mizell A wife, mother, and grandmother to four, Hutto has been a volunteer at Grace Ministry Thrift Store in Bell for three and a half years. organization that operates the thrift store, recovery meetings and Grace Ranch Recovery Home. The thrift store is Grace Ministrys most visible operation. Nina Craven, vice president and co-founder of Grace Ministry, explained that area residents donate new and gently used items for resale and proceeds from each sale go to support Grace Ministry. Wandas faithfulness to serve every Friday for the entire day is a blessing not only to Grace Ministry, but to the loyal customers who come in each week to see her warm smile, Craven said. She is my friend and prayer partner. Customers who stop in at Grace Ministry Thrift Store on Fridays are usually met with the sounds of piano music, as Hutto plays for her church, Mt. Nebo Baptist. Wanda enjoys chatting with customers and spends part of her day with Audrey Thomas, another faithful volunteer. They stock, organize and clean the store. Hugs and encouraging words are given freely by both. When shes not volunteering at Grace Ministry Thrift Store, Hutto can often be found at Bell schools. On Tuesdays she volunteers at Bell Elementary School in the Good News Club. She also spends a great deal of time with her family. Hutto said that she knew about Grace Ministry, but never felt the need to be involved until tragedy struck her family when her daughter Cheri died in an automobile accident. Nina Craven asked me to start attending their Thursday night recovery meetings, Hutto said. I quickly found out that they not only minister to people with addictions, but to hurting people dealing with grief, anger, gambling, etc. Hutto said she feels like shes giving back to Grace Ministry by volunteering at the thrift store one day a week. I would encourage people who are going through any kind of hard times to stop by our store or check out a recovery support meeting, Hutto said, it may be just what you need, it was for me.

Im feeling so bad in fact that I might just fall out on the couch any minute now. So this weeks column is going to be short. So short that one recipe is about the end of it. A couple weeks ago I made this we liked it. This bread would be especially good if you are serving spaghetti or lasagna, or leave out the cheese and you have bread that goes with most any meal. Its so easy to make because you use frozen roll dough. The original recipe came from an old Helvetia, West Virginia, cookbook. Ive made a few changes to the recipe. Garlic Bubble Bread 12 frozen dinner rolls (such as Rhodes) 1/3 cup butter 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon minced parsley, (optional) Thaw rolls a little and cut in half. Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for a few minutes until the garlic is tender. Add Parmesan and parsley to butter. Dip each roll in butter mixture and place in bottom of loaf pan. Layer the rolls until all are used. Let rise until double. They rise better if placed in a oven with the light on. This takes about 2-3 hours. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes until golden brown. Note: I used Kraft shredded Parmesan, Romano, and Asiago Cheeses in place of the Parmesan cheese when testing this recipe and it was very good.

Every week I look forward to go ing to the Journals website: www. gilchristcountyjournal.net to see how citizens vote on our poll question of the week. This past week, I asked the ques tion, Do you think Gilchrist County should have just one middle-high school? The mixed response and feedback we received surprised me and a few closed on Tuesday morning, there were 37 yes votes and 40 no votes. should say that the issue of combining schools is not one that the Gilchrist County School Board is currently considering, though we have heard murmuring of it for years. Several citizens not only cast a vote on the poll, but also expressed their opinions, which I thought was worth sharing. Andrew Boswell said, I believe our community resources could be concentrated into one high school. It would be able to offer more to stu dents, additional sports such as soc cer and wrestling as well as addition al academic courses, such as foreign language programs. Also, extracur ricular activities such as drama, cho rus, etc. At present our high school resources are divided between two great schools, but a single high school would be better for our county. Likewise, Charlene said, I think we should do like Dixie County and have two elementary schools, two middle schools and one big high school. Our sports teams could re programs such as the criminal justice programs. A skepitcal CLM commented, I agree with both of you, seems very logical, but I doubt you will see it anytime soon with the thinking of most folks in this area, sad but true.

Even with over 25 years of marriage, I still love for my husband to make an effort to make me feel special. As a matter of fact, I have never spoken to a wife yet who doesnt enjoy or even yearn for their husband to do the same. Since February is the month we celebrate expressions of love via Valentines Day, I want to devote the next several columns to this topic. husbands and wives to be intentional about this area of marriage. Before I begin, let me add one disclaimer: If it seems like I am leaning a little more toward the husbands, it is because I often hear from men that they dont understand what their wife wants. Trust me, your wife wants you to know, so please view this as a little encouragement and help in the right direction. I promise the pay-off will be worth it! I ran across an anonymous quote recently that gives us a great starting place: If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never be an old nag. One of the most important ways a man can romance his wife is to cherish her. Not just on special occasions, but to make it a practice. word cherish: To hold as precious; to keep with care and affection. How different might your wife act if she felt precious to you at all times? Perhaps many women become old nags because that is how they are treated. Likewise, when I was a young wife, an older lady shared her secret of marital success: Treat your husband as if he is already the man you hope he someday becomes. Youre honoring him will stir the desire in him to become that man. Too often couples get in the endless cycle of trying to demand respect from the other one. In counseling situations, I always encourage a couple to be willing to leap off this destructive cycle. As the head of your home, I ask husbands husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. No better time to start moving in the right direction! Here are a few practical but very powerful ways to cherish your wife: Be intentionally thoughtful. Help with a task without being asked; open the door for her, etc. At a recent ball game, I saw a teenage boy wipe off a wet bleacher with his pants so that his date could sit in a dry place. He has the right idea! Listen to her. Learn to press the off button on the remote. Stop what you are doing so that you can look at her when she is speaking to you. Look her in the eyes. Consider what she has to say as important. Ask for her opinion when making decisions. Share your life with her. Remember that you married in order to do life together. Going your separate ways too often can lead you apart. Your wife will feel honored if you include her in your thoughts and feelings. Defend her honor: A husband who cherishes his wife wont allow another person to disrespect her in any way. Hold the standard high even with your children, extended family or friends. By the way ladies, these same principles work well to honor your husband too! Along with these, I challenge you to make a list of what your husband is doing right and share it with him this week.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2014 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Six 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 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. 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. 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. If you 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. 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 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. To inquire for more information about Tangible Personal Property please contact: Damon C. Leggett Gilchrist County Property Appraiser 112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693 (352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208 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. 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. $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.

The thrift store is Grace Ministrys most visible operation. Nina Craven, vice president and co-founder of Grace Ministry, explained that area residents donate new and gently used items for resale and proceeds from each sale go to support Grace Ministry. Wandas faithfulness to serve every Friday for the entire day is a blessing not only to Grace Ministry, but to the loyal customers who come in each week to see her warm smile, Craven said. She is my friend and prayer partner. Customers who stop in at Grace Ministry Thrift Store on Fridays are usually met with the sounds of piano music, as Hutto plays for her church, Mt. Nebo Baptist. Wanda enjoys chatting with customers and spends part of her day with Audrey Thomas, another faithful volunteer. They stock, organize and clean the store. Hugs and encouraging words are given freely by both. When shes not volunteering at Grace Ministry Thrift Store, Hutto can often be found at Bell schools. On Tuesdays she volunteers at Bell Elementary School in the Good News Club. She also spends a great deal of time with her family. Hutto said that she knew about Grace Ministry, but never felt the need to be involved until tragedy struck her family when her daughter Cheri died in an automobile accident. Nina Craven asked me to start attending their Thursday night recovery meetings, Hutto said. I quickly found out that they not only minister to people with addictions, but to hurting people dealing with grief, anger, gambling, etc. Hutto said she feels like shes giving back to Grace Ministry by volunteering at the thrift store one day a week. I would encourage people who are going through any kind of hard times to stop by our store or check out a recovery support meeting, Hutto said, it may be just what you need, it was for me.

Im feeling so bad in fact that I might just fall out on the couch any minute now. So this weeks column is going to be short. So short that one recipe is about the end of it. A couple weeks ago I made this we liked it. This bread would be especially good if you are serving spaghetti or lasagna, or leave out the cheese and you have bread that goes with most any meal. Its so easy to make because you use frozen roll dough. The original recipe came from an old Helvetia, West Virginia, cookbook. Ive made a few changes to the recipe. Garlic Bubble Bread12 frozen dinner rolls (such as Rhodes) 1/3 cup butter 2 cloves garlic, minced 2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese 1 tablespoon minced parsley, (optional) Thaw rolls a little and cut in half. Melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for a few minutes until the garlic is tender. Add Parmesan and parsley to butter. Dip each roll in butter mixture and place in bottom of loaf pan. Layer the rolls until all are used. Let rise until double. They rise better if placed in a oven with the light on. This takes about 2-3 hours. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes until golden brown. Note: I used Kraft shredded Parmesan, Romano, and Asiago Cheeses in place of the Parmesan cheese when testing this recipe and it was very good.

Every week I look forward to going to the Journals website: www. gilchristcountyjournal.net to see how citizens vote on our poll question of the week. This past week, I asked the question, Do you think Gilchrist County should have just one middle-high school? The mixed response and feedback we received surprised me and a few closed on Tuesday morning, there were 37 yes votes and 40 no votes. should say that the issue of combining schools is not one that the Gilchrist County School Board is currently considering, though we have heard murmuring of it for years. Several citizens not only cast a vote on the poll, but also expressed their opinions, which I thought was worth sharing. Andrew Boswell said, I believe our community resources could be concentrated into one high school. It would be able to offer more to students, additional sports such as soccer and wrestling as well as additional academic courses, such as foreign language programs. Also, extracurricular activities such as drama, chorus, etc. At present our high school resources are divided between two great schools, but a single high school would be better for our county. Likewise, Charlene said, I think we should do like Dixie County and have two elementary schools, two middle schools and one big high school. Our sports teams could reprograms such as the criminal justice programs. A skepitcal CLM commented, I agree with both of you, seems very logical, but I doubt you will see it anytime soon with the thinking of most folks in this area, sad but true.

Even with over 25 years of marriage, I still love for my husband to make an effort to make me feel special. As a matter of fact, I have never spoken to a wife yet who doesnt enjoy or even yearn for their husband to do the same. Since February is the month we celebrate expressions of love via Valentines Day, I want to devote the next several columns to this topic. husbands and wives to be intentional about this area of marriage. Before I begin, let me add one disclaimer: If it seems like I am leaning a little more toward the husbands, it is because I often hear from men that they dont understand what their wife wants. Trust me, your wife wants you to know, so please view this as a little encouragement and help in the right direction. I promise the pay-off will be worth it! I ran across an anonymous quote recently that gives us a great starting place: If a man has enough horse sense to treat his wife like a thoroughbred, she will never be an old nag. One of the most important ways a man can romance his wife is to cherish her. Not just on special occasions, but to make it a practice. word cherish: To hold as precious; to keep with care and affection. How different might your wife act if she felt precious to you at all times? Perhaps many women become old nags because that is how they are treated. Likewise, when I was a young wife, an older lady shared her secret of marital success: Treat your husband as if he is already the man you hope he someday becomes. Youre honoring him will stir the desire in him to become that man. Too often couples get in the endless cycle of trying to demand respect from the other one. In counseling situations, I always encourage a couple to be willing to leap off this destructive cycle. As the head of your home, I ask husbands husbands ought to love their wives as their own bodies. No better time to start moving in the right direction! Here are a few practical but very powerful ways to cherish your wife: Be intentionally thoughtful. Help with a task without being asked; open the door for her, etc. At a recent ball game, I saw a teenage boy wipe off a wet bleacher with his pants so that his date could sit in a dry place. He has the right idea! Listen to her. Learn to press the off button on the remote. Stop what you are doing so that you can look at her when she is speaking to you. Look her in the eyes. Consider what she has to say as important. Ask for her opinion when making decisions. Share your life with her. Remember that you married in order to do life together. Going your separate ways too often can lead you apart. Your wife will feel honored if you include her in your thoughts and feelings. Defend her honor: A husband who cherishes his wife wont allow another person to disrespect her in any way. Hold the standard high even with your children, extended family or friends. By the way ladies, these same principles work well to honor your husband too! Along with these, I challenge you to make a list of what your husband is doing right and share it with him this week. You may just be on the way to the best Valentines Day ever, because every heart matters!

For the 100th day they practiced good citizenship by giving to a worthy cause. Students were asked to donate money to Lane Langfords family. This allowed the kids to take part in giving instead of receiving. Some of the third graders comments were- It made me feel like I was doing something good for a citizen. Helping others is important. I think all the money will make a difference. I love doing this kind of thing. We were able to help someone instead of helping ourselves. I was being a good citizen. The 3rd grade teachers are very proud of their students. A $500 goal was set, and we surpassed it. TES celebrates 100th day of school by donating to Lane Langford Submitted The patrols at Trenton Elementary School want to thank all of the parents, community and school staff for their continued support of the program. Wednesday, Jan. 29, local Dr. John Frazier kicked off our Spring Leadership Lunch Series with a visit to the Patrols. Dr. Frazier spoke to the Patrols about characteristics a leader should display in his motivational talk with the students. Dr. Frazier is a local chiropractor and has children in the Gilchrist County School System. He gave the students a list to keep of traits that a leader should possess and spoke about each trait. The Patrols are looking forward to three more upcoming Leadership Lunches in which Patrols will host speakers who will teach leadership skills and share motivational stories each month. The lunches are organized by the sponsor, Kim Lander, who recognizes the need to cultivate the positive traits and habits among the kids at this formative age.

THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2014GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNALPage Six TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY INFORMATIONThis 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 PropertyWhat 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. 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. 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. If you 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. 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. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. 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 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. To inquire for more information about Tangible Personal Property please contact:Damon C. Leggett Gilchrist County Property Appraiser112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208Q. 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. 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. $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.
