Grand Jury Indicts Two

Chiefland Men Involved In

.: Trenton Murder
::-',-_' n r'-=

Matthew Andrew Koshowany-
Pitz, 21 and Donald Hughes, 20,
both of Chiefland were indicted by
the Grand Jury on Thursday, Sep-
tember 28 in Trenton. Court records
show that both Koshowany-Pitz and
Hughes were both unemployed at the
time the murder occurred.
Both men were charged with first
degree murder according to States At-
torney Bill Cervone. If they are found
guilty they may receive a mandatory
life sentence. The States Attorney's
office did not seek the death penalty
in this case according to Cervone; the
case did not warrant it.
Court records show that Koshow-
any-Pitz and Hughes were trying to
leave the state via a Greyhound bus
traveling to Erie, Pennsylvania when
they were taken into custody.
The Grand Jury was presented with
the following facts. The murder of

Sidney Lee Henry occurred after a
drug buy/burglary turned bad at Hen-
ry's home located at 372 NE Row-
land Boulevard in Trenton around 10
p.m. Henry was shot three times in
the back as he tried to flee the area.
According to the records Donald
Hughes, Matthew Koshowany-Pitz,
April Salley and David Powers trav-
eled from Chiefland to Trenton in
Salley's silver Ford Probe. Hughes,
Koshowany-Pitz and Salley went
into Henry's residence. Salley intro-
duced Hughes, and Koshowany-Pitz
to Henry. While in the residence Ko-
showany-Pitz pulled out a handgun
and a struggle ensued between the
victim and Koshowany-Pitz. Accord-
ing to the records Hughes then pulled
out his handgun and fired several
rounds in the direction of the victim.
The victim then began to run down
the hallway towards the back door of

the residence when he was struck in
the back by three bullets. Koshow-
any-Pitz also fired his handgun at the
victim as he fled down the hallway.
The victim fell out the back door
and died as a result of the gunshot
At that time Hughes, Koshowany-
Pitz, and Salley fled the residence
with the cocaine and guns. These
three subjects got back into the Ford
Probe being driven by David Powers
and fled the area. Hughes' weapon
was thrown away by Powers. Ko-
showany-Pitz stated in an interview
that he went to the victims residence
with the intent of robbing him. Ko-
showany-Pitz stated that Hughes was
with him but he was not carrying a
gun. Koshowany-Pitz said he was
carrying a .22 caliber revolver and
a .38 revolver. He also stated that he

Dixie Grade Could Be Paved If

DOT Grant Program Is Approved

The Gilchrist County Commission
unanimously agreed to take action
and make an application for revenues
that could provide revenues to pave
NE l0ti Street (Dixie Highway). The
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion identified that in Section 339-
2817 Florida Statutes, was created
the County Incentive Grant Program.
This program allows the DOT to enter
into a Joint Participation agreement
with counties for the improvement of
transportation facilities on the State
Highway System. These funds may
also be used for local transportation
facilities that relieve congestion from
the state highway system. The local

municipalities and counties may ap-
ply for funds for particular projects
that meet the program guidelines
through the local county commis-
sion. This statute established a 50%
match for eligible projects. Eligible
counties may request a waiver of the
match when submitting their applica-
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to make an applica-
tion to seek up to $6 million, which
is estimated, would pave the 5-mile
road that is currently a lime rock
grade. His motion included the ap-
plication to request a waiver for the
50% match that would come from

Gilchrist County. Commissioner
Kenrick Thomas gave a second to the
motion before the board voted 5-0 in
favor of the action. Ron McQueen
explained to the board that this road
is identified as a Connector route that
travels from CR 337 to SR 47. There
is an estimated 850 residents that live
on this five miles of roadway. Com-
missioner Tommy Langford told the
board that there are several large sub-
divisions that are currently being de-
veloped that would also increase the
traffic on this roadway. The county
submitted this application to the De-
partment of Transportation before the
October 1, 2006 deadline.

Gilchrist County Animal

Services Promotes

Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog Month

By Anna Wild
October is Adopt-A-Shelter-Dog
Month. According to the ASPCA it
is estimated that 63% of US house-
holds have pets. However, an esti-
mated 8 to 12 million companion ani-
mals enter shelters nationwide every
year, out of which 5 to 9 million are
euthanized. If you do the math this
means every 7 to 9 seconds an animal
is euthanized that could have made a
great pet. About 60% of shelter dogs
and 70% of shelter cats are put to
sleep because there are not enough
homes to care for them. To highlight
the plight of these innocent animals,
and to encourage the public to make
pet adoption their first option, Adopt-
A-Shelter-Dog Month was created.
You can make a difference in the life
of a dog or cat by calling to make
an appointment to visit the Gilchrist
Animal Control Facility and adopt a
pet. You can also impact the lives of
many more animals by simply hav-
ing your pet spayed or neutered; this
stops the chain of puppies and kittens
that will need to have caring homes
found for them.
Here in our own backyard I was
lucky enough to get to talk with both
of our Animal Control Services Offi-
cers, Lynn Watson and Mike Burnett.
Lynn has been with Animal Control
in Gilchrist County since November
2005 and Mike just began about 5
months ago. Both share a true re-
spect of animals and care about the
future of every animal they come
in contact with. Many people don't
really understand the true job of an
Animal Control Officer, "People still
don't realize we are animal services
and animal services is not just to go
out there and say I'm going to take
somebody's dog because they're not
feeding it, that kind of stuff. Basi-
cally it's an all around thing, you
lose a dog, you find a dog, but it's

Shown from left are Lynn Watson, and Mike Burnett they are
the Gilchrist County Animal Control Services officers. Here they
are with Sugar a black lab mix and Dottie a terrier mix. Both are
females and available for adoption. Please call (352)463-3158 and
leave your name and number to make an appointment to see the
animals available at the shelter. October is Adopf-A-Sheller Dog
month, it's also a great month to fall in love with a new friend!

as well about trying to protect the
dogs," Mike explained. "And we're
not here just to take people's animals
in and kill them at the end of the 10
days, a lot of people feel that all we
do is take them in and kill them."
Lynn shared. The last thing Mike
or Lynn want to do is take your pet
away from you, however, if there is
an issue with how an animal is being
treated it is their job to check things
out and educate the community on
what is acceptable now. Things have

changed a lot from the days of our
grandparents; there are many things
that may have been acceptable then
that are no longer appropriate. Mike
and Lynn are good enough to take the
time to educate individuals and will
do everything in their power to allow
them to keep their pets. Situations
do arise in which they simply cannot
allow someone to keep their pet due
to extreme neglect, abuse, or inabil-

OCTOBER 5, 2006


By: John M. Ayers
The coastal marshes along the
mouth of the Suwannee River appear
to be alive this time of year with fish
and other sea life.
Late last week we took the time to
fish for some mullet out from Suwan-
nee. The fish were scattered in the
shallows, but everywhere we went
we found mullet. We threw out cast
nets and finally caught our limit.
When I talked with friends that had
the opportunity to fish over the week-
end, everyone explained that they
have been seeing more mullet than
they can ever remember.
From fish we caught I cleaned
some for dinner Friday evening as
Adam and Carrie stopped by our
home to eat with us on their way to
Suwannee. We enjoyed fresh mullet
and red fish.
If you have an opportunity to go
fishing, I would recommend taking
a child or anyone that really enjoys
getting out on the water. On Friday,
October 6, the moon will be full. This
should be quite a site as the big or-
ange harvest moon rises in the east.
Take the time and look for this to oc-

The Naked Truth
(Kent Heaton)

A common phrase we use in everyday language is the
"naked truth." This phrase means the absolute truth and
comes from an old fable. "Truth and Falsehood went
swimming. Falsehood stole the clothes that Truth had left
on the river bank, but Truth refused to wear Falsehood's
clothes and went naked. Truth is pure. There is no deceit
in truth and it bears no resemblance to falsehood. Truth is
not encumbered with the cloak of lies and garments of
The wise man declares "there are six things which the
Lord hates, yes, seven which are an abomination to Him:
haughty eyes, a lying tongue, and hands that shed
innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet
that run rapidly to evil, a false witness who utters lies,
and one who spreads strife among brothers" (Proverbs
6:16-19). The tongue of lies is at the root of most things
that cause men to sin. We have become a nation much like
Israel filled with those things the Lord hates. "They bend
their tongue like their bow; lies and not truth prevail in
the land; for they proceed from evil to evil, and they do
not know Me, declares the LORD. Let everyone be on
guard against his neighbor, and do not trust any brother;
because every brother deals craftily, and every neighbor
goes about as a slanderer. Everyone deceives his neighbor
and does not speak the truth, they have taught their
tongue to speak lies; they weary themselves committing
iniquity. Your dwelling is in the midst of deceit; through
deceit they refuse to know Me, declares the Lord"
(Jeremiah 9:3-6). Sound familiar?
truth is open and without shame. Falsehood creates evil
and mistrust among neighbors. Gossip is borne upon wings
of lies and rumors spread within the belly of the serpent of

all liars. "No lie is of the truth" (1 John 2:21). People of
God are people of their word and their word is truth. As a
new creation created in "righteousness and holiness of
truth" Christians put away falsehood from their lips and
speak the truth "each one with his neighbor: for we are
members one of another" (Ephesians 4:24-25). Truth
bears no shame. Truth is the same with each telling. The
challenge of telling a lie is trying to remember the lie to.
repeat each time. Truth springs from fountains of joy.
"He that utters truth shows forth righteousness"
(Proverbs 12:17). The exhortation of the Lord through
Zechariah says, "These are the things that ye shall do:
speak ye every man the truth with his neighbor; execute
the judgment of truth and peace in your gates; and let
none of you devise evil in your hearts against his
neighbor; and love no false oath: for all these are things
that I hate, saith Jehovah" (Zechariah 8:16-17). Truth is
kind and finds the worth of righteousness in the heart of
those who practice truth. Peace is the child of truth that
prospers in the fields sown with the seed of truth.
The warning is clear for those who do not practice
truth. "But the fearful, and the unbelieving, and the
abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and
sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, will have their part
in the lake burning with fire and brimstone, which is the
second death" (Revelation 21:8). Truth will not wear the
garments of falsehood and will bear the purity of the heart
in speaking the truth, believing the truth and practicing the
truth. There are no small lies or white lies or cute lies a
lie is a lie. Truth is truth. Truth is found in speaking the
words of truth (John 17:17). Refuse to put on the garments
of falsehood. Walk according to the naked truth.

Yes, October is upon us once again,
that time of the year when trees dis-
play their fall colors and pumpkins
debut as pumpkin pie. It is also the
most dreaded month in the annals of
investing, the month of black Mon-
Does October really deserve its
rotten reputation? There is some jus-
tification, given the great Crash of
1929. More recent, but still only his-
tory book material for most of those
on Wall Street today, is the 508-point
crash on October 19, 1987, along
with the relatively minor "October
massacres" of 1978, 1979, 1989 and
However, I recommend that you
view October's reputation in the same
light as those ghosts and goblins that
will come knocking on your door on
Halloween and focus your attention
instead on Valero Energy.
There have been a number of let-
ters asking if I still believed in the
veracity of the company, its growth
potential and the subsequent poten-
tial of its shares. Once again I will
give you the answer first, yes I. do.
Now let's look and see how Iderived
that answer.
A year ago when I discussed Valero
my 2005 earnings estimate (split ad-
justed) was for $6.40 per share. The
company reported 2005 GAAP earn-
ing $6.10 and earnings of $6.76 if
you subtract out one-time expenses.
Back then the shares were trading for
$58 and had a trailing 12 month mul-
tiple (P/E) of 8 times earnings.
The shares recently closed at $49.63
with a trailing twelve month multiple
of 6 times earnings. This does not
sound good on the surface. So how
can I still recommend the stock for
consideration in a portfolio?
Remember what I wrote last week
about how in the short run the mar-
ket's a voting machine and sometimes
people vote very unintelligently. This
is an excellent example.
For the three months ended June
30, Valero reported second quarter
net income of $2.98 per share, the
highest quarterly net income in the
company's history, as compared to
$1.53 a year ago. For the six months
ended June 30, Valero's net income
was $4.29 per share, as compared to
$2.49 a year ago.
Keep in mind that Valero is the
largest refiner in North America. It is
also one of the nation's largest retail
operators. Given all that, what do the
financial models predict for the com-
pany's intrinsic value?
Using a discounted earnings mod-
el, Valero's shares have an intrinsic
value of $107 per share, and that as-
sumes an earnings growth rate of 2.23
percent. If we use a free cash flow to
the firm model, a more conservative
approach, the intrinsic value is $84
per share. The earnings growth rate
is the same in both cases.
My earnings estimate for 2006 is
for $9.10 per share. Using a mul-
tiple of 6 times earnings, you have
a $54.60 share price for a gain of 10
percent over the next six months.

Just Southern
By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Amish school shooting on Mon-
day was a tragic event. More tragic
for those unworldly people than for
most Americans only because they
have grown up so innocently. Those
children in that one -room school-
house haven't grown up watching
television or having access to a com-
puter or in most cases to a phone.
But when I think of my own child-
hood I also look back on it as being
a time of innocence. About the only
violence we were exposed to was a
few shots being fired on Bonanza.
That is if someone would go outside
and manually turn the TV antenna in
the right direction. I remember my
brother Mike being the antenna man.
Someone would watch the screen and
holler out the window to stop when
the reception came in sorta clear. It
never was very clear and often just
when you became real interested in
a program the wind would change
directions and the reception would
go out. Which meant another trip to
the yard to turn the pole for one of
my brothers. These were the days
of Leave It To Beaver and Andy

Now ask yourself the most critical
question of all. Do you really believe
that the price of oil is going to remain
below $70 per barrel and that the sub-

ner but the oil exporting nations and

they smoked the eight ball of cocaine

everyone knew you and your grand-
mas, grandpas, aunts and uncles and
even your distant cousins. I can re-
member that if someone had cousins
in Georgia or somewhere up north
a ways we were pretty impressed.
When my mother went shopping in
Chiefland to buy groceries she often
left me in the car. Of course the car
windows were rolled down because
we didn't have air conditioning in our
cars back then. On the main street of
Chiefland on any given Saturday back
then there would be children hang-
ing out of almost every car. Back in
those days if your mother told you to
stay in the car you did, because our
mothers never heard of time out. We
all hung half out of our cars or in the
back of pickup trucks talking to our
friends or yelling at someone who
drove by at about 10 miles per hour.
Nobody worried about their child be-
ing snatched from a parked car be-
cause no one in the area had every
heard of anyone taking a child.
My mother only made the trip to
town from our farm which was seven
miles away once a week on Saturday.
If she ran out of a grocery item before
the next Saturday rolled around it
was just too bad, she wasn't about to
waste gas or wear out their car mak-
ing extra trips to town.
My mother's social life consisted
of going to church on Sunday and
her once monthly Home Demonstra-
tion Club meetings. Ours consisted
of going to school, attending the 4-H
Club meeting and going to town on
Saturday. If we were real lucky we
got invited to a peanut boiling or a
cane grinding every now and then.
Most of the children that I grew up
with didn't know a single soul who
had been divorced. Everybody had
their original parents and most all the
mothers were at home when we got
off the school bus.
What I remember most about grow-
ing up in such a simple innocent time
was the feeling of being loved. I also
remember most all the adult members
of my family including my parents
and grandparents having time to lis-
ten to my little-girl chatter. Way back
when folks had time to listen to their
children, I'm not sure if they really

had more time or if they just realized
that children need to feel important
I do feel for those Amish families
who have lost loved ones in the
school shooting. After visiting the
beautiful Amish area of Ohio several
times I've come to realize that the
Amish children are valued greatly
and much loved. I wonder how we
as a country got from it being safe
for a bunch of kids to be left in cars
while their mothers shoped to a man
lining up little Amish girls in front of
a black board and shooting them in
only about 40 short years. Mayberry
to 2006, I wonder what it will be like

The following recipe makes a real
good appetizer. I have tested it on my
family and the Journal staff. From
time to time everyone at the Journal
is called on to do a little taste testing,
bless their hearts. If I cook up some-
thing that's not good it just goes in
the garbage. One thing about trying
new recipes, only you and the good
Lord has to know if they don't turn

3 cups chicken, boiled and
1 cup grated Colby and Monterey
Jack cheese blend
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper

1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon chopped parsley

a large bowl, combine all the in-
dreadents. Unroll pie crust and cut

P. O. Box 1

American Legion Airs
For God and Country we associate ourselves together for the following
purposes:To uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America; to
maintain law and order; to foster and perpetuate a one hundred percent Americanism...
These words begin the Preamble to the American Legion Constitution and are recited
at the beginning of most every Legion meeting. One of the ways we can continue to
uphold and defend our Nation's Constitution, maintain law and order, and foster
Americanism, is to VOTE. It is a duty, and our service to our Nation in the Armed
Forces insured the right to vote for ALL Americans. Our government and it's officers
are answerable to the People, through the voting booth, but only if we, the People, use
it. Study the candidates running for election and vote for those of your choice, but
At the American Legion National Convention in Salt Lake City this last August,
it was decided to raise the yearly dues at the National level, That means the
Departments would also raise their dues, and the local Posts would likely need to do
the same. The dues went up $4.50 per year, as of January, 2007. Jamerson-Sheffield
Post 91 in Trenton will raise their dues to $30.00 per year in January to cover the
increase at the Department level. As a word of encouragement, if you renew before
December 31, 2006, the dues would only be $25.00 for the next year. After January,
the increase to $30.00 will be in effect. As our neighboring Third District
Commander, Gene'Street, has said, "It still costs more to fill up a tank of gas than to
pay membership fees to the American Legion for a whole year, and you get much,
much more from the American Legion, that does not disappear after 400 miles of
driving." And when you put it in that perspective, it makes it a little easier to accept
the increase. The National American Legion has not raised dues since 1994 and costs
have gone up on everything as all of us can agree. Adding $5.00 per year to the
membership fee should cover increases for the next five to ten years, if not longer.
The Legion magazine has had several articles covering this issue in the last few
American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 meets on Thursday, October 12, at 7:00 PM,
right after the Post 91 Legion Family Executive Committee meets at 6:00 PM at the
Post Home on US-129 five miles north of Trenton. All members are encouraged to
attend and participate.
The Post 91 Legion Family (Auxiliary Unit 91, SAL Squadron 91 and Post 91)
invites you to a Fifties and Sixties Sock Hop at the Post Home on Saturday, October
14, beginning at 6:30 PM.
Refreshments will be available. A $5.00 donation cover charge is requested to
cover the refreshments such as iced tea, lemonade, coffee and snack foods. Rootbeer
floats will be available for an extra fee. This is a fund raiser for the programs for the
Auxiliary and the Post 91 programs, so come out and help out. Enjoy some 50s and
60s music, dance if you want to, visit with friends and just enjoy the evening. And if
you enjoy the evening's dances too much, there are some good chiropractors in this
area. Remember, Post 91 is a No Smoking Post. There are smoking areas outside.
If you know of a Legion family in need, contact the Post or Auxiliary Chaplain
to let them know of that need. The Chaplain will, in turn, notify those necessary to
help with the need. The same goes for any that are sick or in the hospital. Watch over
your Legion family.
Remember our Armed Forces all around this world in your thoughts and prayers
each day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows, and the
families of those called to active duty, helping out however and whenever you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely, American Legion Post 149

Remember Our Troops
For those who believe, prayer is a
powerful weapon. It not only does
something for the pray-er, but also it
can increase the faith of those who
are being prayed for, especially those
who are in harm's way and protecting
our freedoms which we sometimes
take for granted here in the United
States of America.
We all should be consistent in our
prayers for those of our county who
are serving in the Armed Forces. The
following is a known list of those
who are on active duty, and who ei-
ther have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives here
in Gilchrist County. (If you know
of an active military personnel who

can be listed the next time this article

Governor Bush
Announces Inititative To
Assist Florida's
Severely Injured
Florida Seamless Transition
Program Helps Servicemembers
Learn About State Benefits
Governor Jeb Bush today an-
nounced the start of a pilot program
which provides the state with timely
veteran contact information from the
U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs
(VA), allowing the Florida Depart-
ment of Veterans' Affairs (FDVA) to
reach out to severely injured service-
members inbound for treatment at a
Florida-based VA facility.
"I'm proud that Florida is the first
state to establish a formal program to
inform our injured veterans from Op-
erations Enduring Freedom and Iraqi
Freedom about Florida state benefits
available to them and their families,"
said Governor Bush. "Hopefully,
this pilot initiative, called the Florida
Seamless Transition Program, will
become a model for other state gov-
ernments to enhance their long-term
case management support of these
deserving veterans and the families
of the fallen."
The program allows VA staff
members assigned to Department of
Defense medical facilities to contact
injured servicemembers headed to
VA treatment facilities in Florida,
and provide an opportunity for them
to authorize contact by FDVA repre-
In June 2006, Governor Bush pro-
posed the contact information-shar-
ing arrangement regarding severely
injured servicemembers, similar to
the existing relationship between the
DOD and VA.
"This program ensures Florida's
severely injured servicemembers can
be tracked by state government agen-
'cies offering a variety of additive
health care, education, work force,
and financial benefits to federal
programs," said FDVA Executive
Director Rocky McPherson. "This
program will become a valuable as-
set toward state government enhanc-
ing long-term support to our Florida
veterans and their families," he said.
FDVA is a state agency created to
assist all present and former mem-
bers of the Armed Forces of the
United States and their dependents
and survivors in preparing claims
for and securing such compensation,
hospitalization, vocational training,
employment assistance, and other
benefits or privileges they may have
earned. All services rendered by
FDVA are without charge to the

Dear Voters:
Having been raised on our family farm in North Gilchrist County I learned how to work
hard from a very early age. I also learned the value of a dollar and what it means to put
forth 100% into an honest day's work. I still work daily on our farm that I manage alongside
my uncle, my father and my three brothers.

Family is very important to me. I have been blessed to have fine examples and role models
in my life regarding my faith in God, service to my Country, love and respect for my family
and service to OUR community. Myparents as well as grandparents served in the educa-
tional system here in Gilchrist County as well as the health care arena. My paternal grandfa-
ther served as a Gilchrist County Commissioner for several years. I am dedicated to
Gilchrist County. I am dedicated to doing the best job I can do as County Commissioner if

It has been a pleasure to visit with many of you over the past few months and I am hoping
to meet with many more of you over the next several weeks. Please feel free to contact me
with any questions or concerns that you may have. I would sincerely appreciate your
consideration on November 7, 2006!

that split the uprights following the
In the second period the two teams
played hard and exchanged offensive
possessions several times. The Bucs
attempted a field goal with just mo-
ments remaining in the opening half.
The kick went wide and the visitors
held a 7-0 lead at intermission.
The third period was also a dead
lock as both teams moved the foot-
ball but neither could score a touch-
In the fourth quarter, the Bulldogs
had a first and goal inside the Bucs'
10-yard line. Bell attempted to score
but fell short on each opportunity.
With 1:09 left in the game, the Bucs
were on offense and decided to seal

the win as they took a knee on the last
two plays of the game.
The Bulldog's Lee Carlisle led Bell
on offense as he rushed for 52 yards
on 9 runs. Ty Lasimone picked up 23
yards for the Bulldogs on 5 attempts.
Bell's Justin Fowler completed 10 of
29 passes for 83 yards with 1 inter-
ception. Brandon Ridgeway was the
Bulldogs leading receiver as he had 4
receptions for 35 yards.
The Bucs Brett Suggs set the pace
for the winners on offense as he
rushed for 123 yards on 24 carries.
John Perry picked up 54 yards on 14
rushes. Branford's quarterback Tim
Clark completed 3 of 10 passes for
34 yards.

time. Thank you Hitchcock's for let-

Bell Elementary School
PTA News, Events And
The PTA at Bell Elementary is off
to an awesome start this year. Our
most recent event was Grandparent's
Day. This full-day event is compiled
of county officials,. volunteers, par-.
ents, friends of the PTA and most im-
portantly, or:disr' lmnL ghed guests,
parents that traveled for over three
hours just to come and have lunch
with their grandchildren. The orga-
nization of this event was tip-top and
the day was busy, but ran as smooth
as silk. There are tons of volunteers
that spent numerous hours helping


out. Thank you. Without you and'
your support, our PTA would not be
as successful.

of our county officials that took time
out of their busy schedules to come
and serve on the serving line: Randy
Durden (County Commissioner),
Kenrick Thomas (County Com-
missioner), Joe Gilliam (Clerk of
Court), Marilyn Bruce (Tax Collec-
tor), and Damon Leggett (Property
Appraiser). We would also like to
say thank you to Mr. Terry Owens
who "came out of retirement" to read
to several classes of children that day,
along with several others.
One of the new things this year
at Grandparent's Day was photos.
Angel Taylor of Angel Taylor Pho-
tography was there and took pictures
of those wishing to capture their
moment from such a memorable
day. Thank you to all of our many
volunteers that were there and helped
to make our Grandparent's Day the
most successful, yet,
Homecoming is just around the
corner (October 13th) and we are
gearing up for the parade. The PTA

Bell JV Bulldogs
by Sandy Panchyshyn
The first quarter started off with
the Warriors kicking off to our #5
Bulldog Tyler Popp who returned it
for 45 yards. Then # 21 Jeremy Zim-
merman ran the ball in for our first
touchdown of the game. Our #53
Bulldog Devonte King ran it in for
the two point conversion.
Later in the first quarter Bell's # 81
Chris Huek intercepted the ball and
ran it for 40 yards into the end zone,
giving the Bell Bulldogs our second
touchdown in the first quarter.
Then a two-point conversion was
made by Chris Wilkerson. The Bull-
dogs were awesome tonight. On our
next possession Jeremy Zimmerman
ran another touchdown for this Bell
team leaving the score 22-0.
Still in first quarter, Bulldogs # 20,
Bradly, Denfharm had, aphemenal
53yara Scarry for our fourth touch-
down in the first quarter. These dogs
were unstoppable. Score at half time
In the second half #81 Bulldog
Chris Huek, made a big sac on the
Warrior quarterback for a huge loss.
In the fourth our #15 Steven Woodby
made a touchdown and his own two-
point conversion. This game was
incredible. Final score was 50-0. A
lot of younger players contributed to
this shut-out win and were able to get
some playing time out on the field.
Just to name a few who got to
play: Abdul M., Noah T., Tyler M.,
Noah T., Garrett H., Jake H., Logan
D., Greyson S., Tyler C., Nathan H.,
Chris R., Chris H., Stevie J., Cole U.,
Vinny M., Gage T., Kyle F., Kyle S.,

good luck guys. Play hard, always
stay true to your teammates. Team

Bell Middle High PTA
Meeting Will Be Held
On October 9th
Calling on you. Would you like to
be a part of a dynamic group who
work for our students? Well would
you? It only takes a minute to join
the working group for Bell Middle
PTA. The October meeting will be
held in the Bell Media Center on
Monday, October 9, 2006, begin-
ning at 7:00 p.m. Now...don't say
you don't have time just yet...our
meetings usually only run about an
hour....it's worth the time. Please
plan to join us.
The goal of PTA is to help keep
parents up to date with the events of
the Bell Middle High School com-
munity. The organization sponsors
events such as Honor Recognition of
Bell, Middle School and the Awards
Night for both Middle and High
School and even a few of the scholar-
ships that are awarded to our students
each year.
With the goal of communica-
tion in mind, PTA invites a guest
speaker each month to our monthly
meetings. Last month we were very
lucky to have Mrs. Dana Collins to
represent the guidance Department
of Bell schools. She brought with
her information about the CPT, SAT,
and ACT testing, the availability of
each, as well as cost and schedules.
She also shared information from our
local service recruiter and lots of de-
tails about the Florida Bright Futures
Scholarship Program. PTA appreci-
ates the time Mrs. Collins devoted to
us and extends our many thanks. This
month our guest speaker will come
via video from our own media staff
with information and details about
the Accelerated Reading program.
We are looking, forward to a very
informative evening.
In order to be as active as we
are...we must of course hold fund
raising events. Some of these events
slated for the 2006-07 school year are
spirit item sales, at football games
and during Homecoming, Valentine
carnation sales a Christmas cookie
walk, and our biggest each year.. .the
Annual PTA Golf Tournament. Each
year these events help us to pay for
our activities and sponsor scholar-
ships!!! What a busy group.
This year, by way of fund raising,
we will sponsor a new event for the
Bell area. Vintage Portraits will be
offered. PTA will host Premier Por-
trait Studios in Bell on the weekend
of November 17th-19th. There will
be a siftig fee of $l1610.' "That' sitt
ting fee goes directly to the PTA and
you get a FREE 10 x 13 print. What a
great fund-raiser!!!
So....you see it's not all fun and

New Crossbow Season
Gives Hunters More
Crossbow hunters and bowhunters
will be happy to know the new cross-
bow season is just around the corner.
The new season, established for
this year, provides additional 'op-
portunities for hunters wishing to
use crossbows. It also lengthens the
overall hunting season and extends
the number of days conventional
bowhunters can use their bows, since
bows now are legal to take game dur-
ing all hunting seasons.
The added season is limited to
private lands and restricts harvest to
bucks only. Crossbow season does
not apply to wildlife management
The season is between the archery
season and muzzle loading gun sea-
son in the South and Central hunting
zones. Crossbow season lasts five
dave and runs October 9th-13th in,
the ''u1ll 'Hunting Zone and October
23 rd- il in the Central Zone.
In the Northwest Hunting Zone,
the season runs one week and opens
the Monday following Thanksgiving
(November 27th) through December
The most common game to take
during crossbow season are deer, wild
hogs and bearded turkeys.
Only bucks with at least one antler
five inches or more in length can be
taken, and the daily bag limit is two.
Antlerless deer may be taken only
by hunters holding antlerless deer
On private lands, there are no bag
or size limits on wild hogs and, with
landowner permission, they can be
taken year-round.
Only one turkey may be taken
per day, and there is a two-bird fall-
season limit. Turkeys may not be
harvested in Holmes County during
any fall season, including crossbow
Hunters cannot usedogs during
crossbow season to take deer, hogs
or turkeys, and when hunting such
game, broadheads must have at least
two sharpened edges with a minimum
width of 7/8 inch.
Besides a Florida hunting license,
hunters must purchase a $5.00 cross-
bow season permit to hunt during
crossbow season. Hunters holding a
sportsman's, gold sportsman's, mili-
tary gold sportsman's or sportsman's
64 license do not need to buy the
crossbow season permit if their li-
cense runs through the season.
For more information on the
new crossbow season, call Tony
Young at (850) 488-7867 or visit

Alachua County
Acquires Barr
Hammock With The
Help Of The Nature
Alachua County purchased 2,303
acres of land important in protecting
wildlife habitat and water resources
with the help of The Nature Conser-
The 2,303-acre acquisition con-
stitutes a large portion of Barr
Hammock. The purchase price was
$9,972,656. Last week, Florida Com-
munities Trust approved a grant to re-
imburse Alachua County for 60% of
the costs from this acquisition.
In July, the Alachua County

Board of County Commissioners
voted unanimously to purchase Barr
Hammock from Rayonier Forest
Resources, LP. Barr Hammock is
the land bridge between Levy Lake
and Ledwith Lake, both west of Mi-
canopy. Lake Ledwith serves as an
aquifer recharge and by preventing
development on the Barr Hammock
property the area's water resources
remain protected.
The acquired property contains
native habitat important for rare
species, such as gopher tortoises,
Florida sandhill cranes, Eastern in-
digo snakes and woodstorks.
"The Barr Hammock property is
a large swath of ecologically and
archaeologically valuable land. Barr
Hammock is considered by many to
be the 'crown jewel' in the Alachua

County Forever Program," said Brian
Block, senior field representative for
The Nature Conservancy's Alachua
County program.
Alachua County Forever is a voter-
approved, bond-funded, conservation
land acquisition program passed in
2000 to acquire, improve and man-
age environmentally sensitive lands.

FDA Warns Consumers
Not To Drink Bolthouse
Farms Carrot Juice Due
To Botulism Concerns
In response to a fourth case of
botulism being linked to Bolthouse
Farms, Bakersfield, California brand
carrot juice, the Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) is warning
consumers not to drink Bolthouse
Farms Carrot Juice, 450 ml and 1
liter plastic bottles, with "BEST IF
USED BY" dates of NOV 11 2006
or earlier. Consumers should discard
this product. FDA is also reiterating
its advice to consumers to keep carrot
juice including pasteurized carrot
juice refrigerated.
The fourth case of botulism poi-
soning involves an adult female in
Florida who is currently suffering
from paralysis. To date, one link
between the illness and the consum-
ers appears to be that the juice they
drank was not properly refrigerated
once it was in the home, which al-
lowed the Clostridium botulinum
spores to grow and produce toxin.
FDA is investigating other possible
Clostridium botulinum is a bacte-
rium commonly found in soil. Under
certain conditions these bacteria can
produce a toxin that if ingested can
result in botulism, a disease that may
cause paralysis or death. Cases of
botulism from processed food are.
extremely rare in the U.S.
Symptoms of botulism can in-
clude: double-vision, droopy eyelids,
altered voice, trouble with speaking
or swallowing, and paralysis on both
sides of the body that progresses from
the neck down, possibly followed by

looking into whether industry's cur-
rent juice labels provide clear refrig-
eration instructions.

The other request is information.
In the morning about three weeks ago
I saw a red Australian Shepherd mix
canine wearing a blue collar eating
along the road on 129 in Bell. Early
the next evening he was near the
blinker light. A few days later he had
walked to the Lafayette Baptist Asso-
ciation, bony and frail and it is there
I started to feed him for three days.
He would shy away when I put the
food down and the look on his face
showed emptiness and his eyes told
a story of sadness. He disappeared
and Mr. Emenecker saw and fed
him near Gay Road. Days later he
returned to Lafayette Center. About a
week passed, before Mr. Emenecker
saw him in the middle of the road in
front of Bell Medical Center. A truck
slowed down to avoid hitting him but
a car ran into him. There was a thump
and then a yipe, he was nowhere to
be found. If you have him please give
him a good home or if he died please
let us know so when we travel the
roads we will no longer have to look
for him or wonder if he made it to his
final home. Many times I questioned
his drive and determination to reach a
destination known only to him.
We have a new fund raiser. Do you
have any empty ink cartridges? Your
cartridges can be deposited in a small
container attached to the aluminum
can barrels at Bell Jiffy and Hitch-
cocks in Jonesville. Just a reminder
that the 4-Pets Sake's auction is Sat-
urday, November 18th. Please call

Tourist Development Tax
on November 7tlh.

On November 7, 2006 Gilchrist
County voters will have a chance to
let tourists put their 2 cents in to
help the economy and the taxpay-
ers. The tourist development tax
will let visitors pay a 2% tax that
will go towards promoting tourism
in the county.

Tourism is a good, clean "industry"
that will help the local economy
and increase the share of sales taxes
and gas taxes going to our cities
and the county.

The tax will only apply to motel
rooms, hotel rooms, RV sites, and
other short-term rentals.

tourists...Support Tourist Develop-

and turned out beautifully.

North Gilchrist Fire
Station Has New Brush
Truck In Service
The Gilchrist County Commission
was pleased on Monday to see the
new brush truck that was purchased
with receipts from a grant through
the State of Florida. Gilchrist County
Public Safety Director Rob Willis in-
troduced Station #2 Chief Bud Riffle
to give the five-member board the de-
tails of the new brush truck.
North Gilchrist Station #2 Chief
Riffle reported to the County Com-
mission that the new brush truck for
Station #2 was finished and it is a
very nice unit. Chief Riffle explained
Milton Weeks, a resident of Gilchrist
County with a vast number of years
in experience in diesel mechanics,
has been very busy in the assembling
of the fire service attachments to
make this new 450 Ford complete
brush truck.
Gilchrist County was awarded a
grant for $72,000 for this new unit.
Through the efforts of Chief Riffle
and several others in the Gilchrist
County Fire Service Department, the

North Gilchrist Fire Chief Bud Riffle, left, Commissioner Randy Durden, Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford, Commissioner Tommy Langford, Commissioner Kenrick Thomas, Commissioner Mitchell Gentry
and Milton Weeks are shown as the new brush truck was displayed to the commission on Monday.
truck was completed for $69,800. mission that he had contacted the money could be used to finish outfit-
Chief Riffle explained to the Com- grant agency to ask if the remaining ting the new truck. He added the state

agency explained that the remaining
$2.200 could be used by the depart-
ment to purchase new equipment that
would be used on this truck. Chief
Riffle explained the I ,-'. I would be
used to purchase new fire hoses and
other needed equipment. Ron Mc-
Queen, Gilchrist County Administra-
tor, explained to the board that if the
county had gone out and purchased
a truck with the same type of equip-
ment, the price would have been
$25,000 higher than what they had

lc have to maximize the number
of animals they can hold, this gives
owners a chance to find them or
adoption options to arise. And as
many of you have already read, our
County Commissioners did allocate
funds to purchase 3 acres of land
for the new animal control site to be
next to the Emergency Operations
Center location that will be built in
North Gilchrist County. The proper-
ty owner, Peewee Thomas. was also
kind enough to donate an additional
2 acres of land to the site. This is a
much needed change as the site now
does not have enough room for the
demand our area has encountered and
also has no room for horses and oth-
er livestock that does come through
their doors.
Animals found within city limits
have a 3 day hold period for owners/
adopters to come forward and claim
the animal and the animals found in
our county but outside the city will
be held for 10 days; after this time-
frame the animal is humanely eu-
thanized. The animals also cannot
be adopted out before the holding
period but if a party is interested in
adopting them -le can do so after
the holding period is up, this gives
possible owners a chance to locate
their pet. I must say Lynn and Mike
are doing a very good job of doing
what they can to get these animals
into good, caring homes. They are
in the process of finishing their web-
site www.gilchristanimals.us. Mike
explained that, "We are trying to get
it very interactive so that eventually
if you lose a dog you can go in and
say I lost a dog, we'll check it and
put the information up there and then
if someone finds a dog they can go
to the county website and say WOW
look somebody lost this dog." One
of the largest problems in our county
is that if someone loses a dog or finds
a dog they wonder "What do I do?"
They also have a website at www.gil-
christgas.petfinder.com which has in-
formation on the pets available, their
wish list, and directions to the shelter
and how to contact them to arrange to
meet an adoptable animal. Dogs can
be adopted for $48 for males, $63 for
females and cats are $33 for males
and $48'for females. All animals are
spayed/neutered and have a rabies
vaccine. Mike and Lynn also net-
work with area rescuers which help
place animals across the US.
One common problem here as
everywhere are dog bites. They
do need to be reported through the
Health Department and not Animal
Services, all dogs are supposed to
not only have proof of their yearly
rabies vaccinations, but they are sup-
posed to have their tag on their col-
lar. Failure to have your pet properly
vaccinated will result in a $150 fine.
You can have your dog vaccinated
for as little as $5.00 through Dr. Jen-
nifer McH-ale, she is available once
a month at Gilchrist Building Sup-
ply for low cost pet vaccinations; she
will be there again November 18th,
and December1l6th. Keep in mind
this simple vaccine can mean life for
not only your pet but for your family
as well.
Rabies is a problem in all areas of
the US, however, because of this be-
ing such a rural community it makes
contact with carriers much more pos-
sible So PLEASE make sure your
pet has at least their rabies vaccine!
Please take some time this Octo-
ber to call the Gilchrist County Ani-
mal Control Services team at (352)
463-3158 and make arrangements
to visit the animals they have avail-
able for adoption. You may get their
answering machine but please leave
them your name and phone number
and they will get back to you they
promise. You will find all sizes and
coloring but all are very loving. Lynn
and Mike can also help you choose
an animal that will best fit your fam-
ily; some breeds have more energy or
require more care. Please come and
visit these beautiful animals and fall
in love with a new friend!
