Third Annual Evening
Of The Arts Proved To
Be Another Hit
by Anna Wild and Cindy Jo Ayers
Thursday, February 8th was a great
night for all of the families who came
out to the Bell Middle/High School
Evening of the Arts held in the Bell
Elementary School Cafeteria. The
students from the Bell Band along
with the Band Boosters did a fabu-
lous job decorating the caf6. As the
tUV.: entered the\ \ere greeted at
tie door and the ladies %ere glen a
flower at that point everyone knew
they were in for a very, special eve-
ning. The music began as the guest
were served dinner. Petello's Fine
Italian Cuisine Restaurant in Tren-

ton assisted with the meal by pre-
paring lasagna and bread sticks. Ms.
Lisa Boutwell, treasurer of the band
boosters prepared the spaghetti with
meatballs, and salad. The meal was
delicious and the desserts that were
made by the Band Boosters were ab-
solutely amazing.
Guests enjoyed relaxing music
as they ate, they also enjoyed sev-
eral very talented young singers who
sang several songs, including Court-
ney Akins, Jessica Smith and Alyssa
McElroy performed. The talent of
Tony Ash, Josh Ash, Matt White and
Cody Hart impressed the audience as
the performed "Kiss the Girl." Mindy
Cannon, Sarah Money, Kara Can-
non, Charity Ware, Ulrica Diamond,
Jenny and Paige Norton-Aronowicz

performed a very elegant dance, set
to the music of "Think of Me."
Bell High Principal Ronda Parrish
said, "We have a lot of extremely tal-
ented students here, it was wonderful
to see them shine." Once again the
Bell Middle and High School instru-
mental artists showed their true abili-
ties as they performed for a crowd of
over 200 attendees. Todd Eckstein
Bell Band Director and his students
workedd tirelessly for the past two
months to bring this fine performance
It the community, Mr. Eckstein who
has been the Bell Band Director for
the past four years thanked the per-
formers and those who attended the
event and explained, "These skills are

ACLU Challenges Religious Display

Of The 10 Commandments In Front Of

The Dixie County Courthouse

The American Civil Liberties
Union of Florida filed a lawsuit Tues-
day, February 6th, in federal court,:
challenging the constitutionality
of a governmental display of a Ten
Commandments monument erected
in front of the DWi Counr\ Court-
house. The suit is bng brought by
the ACLU ofF lon on behalf of its
members. ,
The six-ton grate monument was
endorsed by the Dixie County Com-
mission early in 2006 after a resident
questioned whether the "Board is
bold enough" to have the monument
erected on the courthouse steps, ac-
cording to minutes from the January
19th, Commission meeting. It also
includes the large inscription at the
base, of the monument to "LOVE
MENTS." The county attorney of-
fered to defend any lawsuits pro
bono, the Commission agreed, and
the monument was placed on the

County Courthouse steps in Novem-
ber, 2006.
"Government does not have the
right to tell Americans which God
to worship," noted Howard Simon,
Executive Director of the American
Civil Liberties Union of Florida.
"The Ten Commandments are an
important part of the Judeo-Chris-
tian religious tradition and should
be read from the pulpit of churches
and synagogues but the Constitu-
tion prohibits the government from
endorsing religious messages such
as this one. In addition to the com-
monly held secular commandments
about murder, stealing, and honor-
ing one's mother and father, the Ten
Commandments also include strictly
religious statements."
S"The question is not whether the
Ten Commandments embody the
right teachings; rather the question is
who is the right teacher politicians

Trenton Police ChiefW. L. Smith
Jr. announced Monday afternoon that
police officer Rodney Wright did
not use excessive force in removing
Trenton resident Roy Shearin from
an area in Shearin's backyard that the
officer deemed was too close to the
active fire.
Chief Smith's Internal Investiga-
tion is a result of Mr. and Mrs. Shea-
rin filing a complaint involving Of-
ficer Wright that he used excessive
force in dealing with Roy Shearin to
remove the 73-year-old man from the
backyard of his home where a stor-
age building was burning on Satur-
day, February 3, 2007.
Chief Smith conducted the in-
vestigation, which began with him
communicating with Mr. and Mrs.
Shearin that reside at 407 S.W. 4th
The Shearins reported that Officer
Rodney Wright entered the backyard
area where Roy Shearin was holding
his garden hose spraying water on the
grass and a kerosene tank that was up
next to his home. Mrs. Shearin re-
ported that her husband heard some-
one say, "Step back," but he stayed
there spraying water. Mrs. Shearin
told the Trenton City Counsel Mon-
day night that the officer grabbed
the hose her husband was using and

snatched it. At that time the water was
reported to have gotten the officer
wet. The police officer was reported
to have snatched the hose' away from
Mr. Shearin, cutting the 73-year-old
man's hand at the time. Mr. Shearin
was reported to have been! grabbed
by the arm, thrown to the ground and
asked if he wanted to be shot with the
officer's Taser weapon.
Chief Smith reported that Officer
Wright responded to a structure fire
at 407 S.W. 4th Ave. Upon arrival the
officers saw large flames approxi-
mately 20-25 feet in the air. Officer
Wright walked to the south side of
the house and observed several by-
standers watching the fire by the
fence at the back of the house. The
officer asked the bystanders to back
up so they would not be injured. The
officers saw David Alvarez standing
in the dog pen at the west end of the
house holding a garden hose water-
ing down the end of the house. On the
north side of the house Investigator
Cordasco and his stepson Jason Dris-
col were using garden hoses spraying
water on the house in an attempt to
keep the fire from spreading. Officer
Wright asked Alvarez to back away
from the fire and the chief reported
that the resident did so.
Chief Smith noted that Officer
Wright noticed,that when Mr. Al-

varez put the water hose down, Mr.
Shearin picked up the hose and start-
ed to spray water on the fire.
The officer then went and advised
Mr. Shearin to drop the hose and
back up as well so he would not be
hurt. Officer Wright reported that due
to the heat of the fire and a wire that
went from over Mr. Shearin's head
to the burning structure, the officer
didn't know if it was an electric line.
In fact, later it was learned the wire
was an electric service wire connect-
ing the house to the shed that was
fully engulfed in flames.
Chief Smith reported that Mr. Shea-
rin refused to obey Officer Wright's
request to back up and when the offi-
cer went to pull Mr. Shearin away by
the arm, Mr. Shearin snatched away
at least two times: Chief Smith's in-
vestigation reported that Mr. Shearin
then struck the officer with the water
hose that he was holding. When Mr.
'Shearin swung the hose at the officer,
Mr. Shearin fell to the ground. The
investigation report indicated that
the officer then asked Mr. Shearin if
he wanted to go to jail and when he
still didn't comply with the officer's
request, the officer asked Mr. Shearin
if he wanted to be Tased.
During the investigation, at no time
did any of the witnesses state that the

Trenton Commission To Establish

Advisory Committee And Revise

Downtown Redevelopment Plan

by John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission
agreed Monday evening that the ap-
pointment of an advisory committee
and the revising of the Downtown
Redevelopment Plan would be the
way the board should go at this time.
Trenton City Manager Jered Otten-
wess gave the City Commission a
memo to consider three alternatives
that he presented and asked for the
board to advise him on which way
the Commission was willing to go
from this workshop meeting.
1. Continue with the plan as it is.
2. Re-write the plan entirely to in-
clude different improvements that
can be .made with the Community
Redevelopment Fund. Hold addi-
tional workshops to discuss'what im-
provements should be made.
3. Amend the plan to include ad-
ditional improvements that can be
made while maintaining the current
items that are already in the plan.
Hold additional workshops to dis-,
cuss what additional improvements
should be included specifically and
reformulate the plan.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey ex-
plained that he would like to see an

advisory committee to further deter-
mine what the community is in sup-
port of. The Trenton native said that
he would like to see people like Mr.
Wilbur Bush who has been coming
to the meetings be involved on the
advisory panel to bring additional in-
formation to the Commission. "I am
afraid to borrow a lot of money to go
into debt to further expand the cur-.
rent downtown redevelopment plan,"
Kinsey explained..
Commissioner Glen Thigpen, "I
am in favor of keeping the scope of
Main Street of the plan to further
consider the construction of cross
walks and this type of improvement.
I am in favor of Alternative 3 that
would allow us to revise the plan and
move forward at the same time." He
also spoke in favor of the Advisory
Committee that would allow both
residents and business property own-
ers to be involved in giving further
information for -the Commission's
Commissioner Arlene Wills also
spoke in favor of the Advisory Com-
mittee and the consideration of Alter-
native #3. Trenton attorney David M.
Lang explained to the board that this

is a workshop meeting and the board
can agree in principal and ad ise the
City Manager to take action, but the
board should not take action regard-
ing a motion or vote.
. Mayor Pete Randolph told the audi-
ence of an estimated 20 residents and
property owners attending the meet-
ing that the City Commission first ad-
opted the Downtown Redevelopment
Plan in 2002. We need to revital-
ize the downtown area or it will die,"
Mayor Randolph explained.
The City Manager introduced Car-
ol \Westmoreland, the Executive Di-
rector of the Florida Redevelopment
Association. Commissioner Arlene
Wilks asked Ms. Westmoreland what
communities the size of Trenton do to
revitalize their downtown area? "You
have a cute downtown area. You have
a tremendous opportunity to build up
downtown Trenton since the devel-
opment, of SR 26 is drawn to a stall
with the Department of Community
Affairs problem. This is really the
challenge that a lot of communities
your size are facing," she explained.
You have to do as much as you can
with the Community Redevelopment

(C.E.R.T.) class in 10 years. These
individuals have been trained in first
aid, fire support, search and rescue,
and terrorism reaction to assist pro-
fessionals in the event of emergen-
cies. They are also trained to assess
a situation to determine if additional
aid is needed in their area. Each team
member will be responsible for main-

available in the event of unforeseen
emergencies. These individuals are
not firemen or law enforcement, but
they have received basic education
in several areas in which emergen-

also receive continuous education
and participate in simulation drills to
keep their skills sharp. The evening
of the graduation the class was learn-

February 15 marks the beginning
of a one-month closure of the
Recreational grouper season in
Federal waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
This closure will be in effect through
March 15,2007.
I recently returned from going
offshore to depths of 60 feet where
we were searching for reef species.
We not only caught some grouper,
but several small Amberjack as well
as 1 keeper.
As we went from spot to spot,
we saw more sea turtles than I can
recall seeing on a single trip. On one
occasion early in the morning, we
rode up on a floating turtle that was
over 6 feet in length. This turtle had
no apparent flaws in its flippers, or
fishing line or other material around
its neck, that showed signs of what
might have killed it.
We saw sea turtles as small as a
basketball and several over three feet
long. The heads of many of the larger
turtles were the easiest to see as well
as the crest of their shells
On this trip the weather was cool
as the water temperatures were
identified as a cold 57 in deep water.
During the day the water warmed to
600_offshore. .l~ :. .'.
When--we returned to the mouth
of McGriff Channel, the water
tempered ies' iHa S"'opped to "7'
again. As we reached the beginning of
the channel markers in the Suwannee
River- the water temperature had

warmed to a surprising 63.
I am in hopes by mid March when
the grouper season in Federal waters
opens, the water temperatures will be
in the high 60s and the bait fish will
be scattered all over the near shore
grassy flats.

Letter To The Editor:
Is It A Hazard Or A
Safety Concern
I wish to speak my feelings about
our Police Officers of Trenton. As
you know of the incident that hap-
pened to a Senior citizen of Trenton
on February 3, 2007, in his own yard.
One of the City Policemen for no le-
gal reason attacked the man who was
already in a very stressful situation
trying to save his home from a fire
that had broken out in his workshop
close to a kerosene tank against his
He was bruised up badly, thrown to
the ground and then threatened to be
shot with at aser weapon. The man
still does not know why he was be-
ing attacked by the officer. Does this
mean that all of us Senior citizens
should be afraid of the Trenton Po-
lice officers?
We are already deeply concerned
about our safety. Now we have to
be concerned about the ones that are
supposed to watch out for our safety
and protect us. This makes me feel
that we would be better protected by
our Sheriff's Department than by a
City Police Department.
A concerned Senior
Citizen of Trenton,

Throughout the year I receive
requests for a repeat what has now
become a traditional Valentine's
Day column on how the fairer sex
can best tackle Wall Street. For
the men reading this, what follows
might encourage you to help that
special lady in your life become
more proficient in dealing with the
suspender crowd.
Let us start with the irrefutable
hypothesis that every woman needs
to establish her own investment
portfolio, a portfolio that she manages
single handily using a deep discount
brokerage firm.
To see why, consider these
gruesome statistics. Women reaching
the age of 65 can expect to live for
an additional 25 years. That means
they have a better chance of outliving
their financial resources than their
male counterparts.
It gets worse. Twenty percent of the
female population will never marry.
For those that do marry, half will
divorce. Within the first year after a
divorce, a woman's income usually
drops by an average of 30 percent.
Failing divorce, 75 percent of
all married women are eventually
widowed. Among those widows,
many will find they are suddenly
living at or near the poverty line,
despite the fact that about 80 percent
were doing fine before their husbands
died. That is a grim prospect to say
the least.
The good news is that I have
interviewed countless numbers of
women who have established and
maintained their own portfolios
utilizing a long-term investment
horizon. Just as important was their
ability to resist the entreaties others,
generally men, to change their course
of action.
Yet, even the best of intentions.
sometimes go astray. For example,
statistics indicate that the average
woman who' saves''itts''itide about
1.5 percent of her income. That is
not enough'. Iremotmt'endvkhd most
experts agree, that everyone who
earns a wage should put aside no less

Life's Barnacles
(Kent Heaton)

There is something to be said about growing older. For
most it is a time of emergent wisdom and maturity with'the
passing of years. The mind settles deeper into life long
truths learned from the school of adversity. Youth's fleeting
moments of yesterday dim in the passing of time. While the
process of age increases an awareness of life's charities there
are other things that begin to hinder and clutter the mind,
body and soul. These matters'are much like barnacles found
on the keels of ocean-going ships.
Barnacles are salt-water shellfish which fasten
themselves to objects under water. They are found on wharf
piles, rocks, turtles, whales and ship bottoms. Barnacles
must be scraped from the keels of ships periodically or they
will reduce the speed of the vessels. It is in the adult stage of
life these crustaceans become hard and fasten themselves in
characteristic lime like boxes to objects. Life brings on its
own barnacles that begin to hinder and slow our progress as
children of God. The most recognized is the aging process.
Solomon described the challenges of growing older in
Ecclesiastes 12. The normal course of life with its dimming
eye sight, feeble motions of the body lacking strength,
grinders few, sleepless nights, fear of heights and voice
weak with age are burdens that slow us down. These
barnacles can hinder our spiritual growth as we believe our
effectiveness has diminished. There is still much for older
saints to do for the Lord. Older men and women need to
share their wealth of knowledge with the young (Titus 2).
Moses was eighty years old when he lead the people out of
Israel; Daniel served his Lord diligently well into his
eighties and probably nineties.
Often we allow the weight of spiritual concerns to
distract our simple, faith in God. With age come the battle

scars of yesterday's struggles and tomorrows disquieting
chasms that must be crossed. Have you sat in worship
services finding it difficult to enjoy the simple pleasure of
youthful devotion clouded by the myriad of problems to be
solved; needs of brethren; sorrow at lost souls; personal
challenges; answers to rid life of the barnacles that hinder
and slow our progress? Of all that Paul endured as an apostle
of Jesus Christ he wrote: "Beside those things that are
without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all
the churches ...If I must needs glory, I will glory of the
things which concern mine infirmities" (2 Corinthians
11:28-30). Paul had barnacles.
As with ships that travel the vast oceans of our world, our
lives are filled with the accumulating barnacles of the
challenges of life. Some we must scrape away to help our
journey. Those who care for, spiritual matters will be
burdened with the care of the Lord's work. It is hard to
imagine the spirit of Paul caring for "all the churches" but he
accepted those things and slowed little in his work for God.
Like Paul, we should never slow in our work for the
Kingdom of God.
Barnacles will multiply through the infirmities of life,
challenges that test our faith and increased love for the work
of Jesus Christ. The joy of the Christian is to know that one
day God will take all our barnacles away "And God shall
wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no
more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain: for the former things are passed away"
(Revelation 21:4). As renewed ships we will sail into the
safety of God's harbor to dwell with Him through the eternal
ages. Until then sail on barnacles and all.

income each year.
Do not write to me telling me that
you cannot do that, or that it "hurts"
too much. I can assure you that
spending your golden years at the
Golden Arches will hurt a lot mote.
Women also have a tendency to
invest in safe, insured money market
accounts and certificates of deposit,
or low yielding bond funds. I urge
you to reconsider such a course of
action. I advocate that anyone under
the age of 65 should entertain keeping
no less than 85 percent of his or her
portfolio in equities.
Assume that you are going to set
up a stock portfolio, if you do not
already have one, and that you will
add to that portfolio on a regular
basis. So which stocks should you
buy? Bookstore shelves sag under the
weight of mighty tomes attempting to
answer that question.
We can slice through the Gordian
knot and simplify the answer. Out of
the nearly 9,000 public companies,
you want to invest in 15 to 30 blue
chip industry leaders with a history
of producing profits and dividends
year after year. One of the best places
to look for investment ideas of that
nature is in the Dividend Achievers
Handbook, published by Mergent
Ladies, if someone asks you what
you want for Valentine's Day, forget
the chocolate. Instead, jot down a few
stock symbols, hand it to him and say,
"These have fewer calories."

Association funds to involve and le-
verage the businesses to revitalize the
growth in the downtown area, the di-
rector pointed out.
Mayor Randolph asked Ms. West-
moreland if she had seen the City of
Trenton Downtown Plan and what
did she think of the plan? You have
to have an eye-popping direction that
draws attention and businesses to
show that the City of Trenton is mov-
ing to revitalize the downtown area,
the director explained. Mrs. Westmo-
reland explained that the City of Mt.

Chipley, Florida is another example
where the City of Chipley has teamed
up with Washington County and the
Chamber of Commerce to dd a beau-
tiful job of revitalizing the downtown
area in Chipley.
Carol Westmoreland explained to
the Commission that the downtown
area is the heart of the community.
You must first revitalize the down-
town area and get it thriving with
business before the other arteries of
the community can begin to expand
with the same type growth, she ex-
plained. "The City Commission needs
to partner with the county in moving
forward to plan for the revitalizing
of this part of the City of Trenton,"
she added. "The City Commission is
the body that makes the decision on
where to spend the CRA funds." She
urged the board to take advantage of
their opportunities and step forward

and revitalize the downtown area.
When the Mayor opened the meet-
ing for Public Comment, Alan Hast-
ings stepped to the podium to address
the coiimission. "I purchased'al'ouj d
in the City of Trenton earlier this year
and have invested $40,000 in this
home." "I think the City of Trenton
needs to identify and improve some
other areas of the community to re-
pair the drainage, roads and other
existing problems with some of these
CRA funds." Hastings explained that
the intersection of SR 26 and NE
10th Street should be identified as the
worst drainage problem in the com-
munity. Hastings agreed to serve on
the Advisory Committee to revitalize
the City of Trenton.
Trenton business property owner
Paul Redd also explained that the
entire City of Trenton has more ur-
gent needs for the funds from the
CRA program to be spent in areas
other than just the downtown. Redd
also agreed to serve on the Advisory
Trenton resident John Satara asked
the board what the committee would
do involving the downtown redevel-
opment plan? He also asked if the
.committee would have any say in

ments to any recipe she tries. Never
the less I think this is pretty near the
Ivy House recipe.
It's true, in 1967 or so I was only a
kid. But I was a kid who was up to my
ears in 4-H; I was a bonafide member
of County Cousins 4-H Club that was
made up of some great kids. Fact is,
nearly all of them are still near and
dear to my heart even today. We all
had a real bond because in those days
we had a club that was the stuff. Each
year at Rally Day we took home the
trophy that was presented to the best
club in the county.
Anyway 4-H Rally Day was where
I first tasted the following recipe.
My'good friend Karen Usher White
whipped up the recipe as part of her
demonstration. Guess what, after all
these years when I finally remem-
bered where I had tasted the dressing.
I called my mother to ask if by chance
she still had the recipe and bless her
heart she had it filed away.
Over the weekend I made the reci-
pe for salad at the big birthday) supper
and my girls really liked it.
If you've never eaten at the Ivy
House in Williston you should give
it a try. The Ivy House is a real good
place to eat and a wonderful place to
go with your girlfriends.

2 tablespoons mustard
2 tablespoons mayo
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 cup evaporated milk
Put all ingredients in mason jar and
shake well.
The dressing will thicken up after
it sets about 15 minutes. Store in re-

how the CRA funds would be spent
in the downtown area?
City attorney David M. Lang ex-
plained that the committee would be
-an advisory group that ouild meet
and follow the guidelines of the Flor-
ida Stnshine Law.'The'City of Tre n-
ton would advertise when and where
the voluntary 'committee meetings
would be held. The'advisory com-
mittee would conclude and make a
recommendation to the Commission
involving the CRA program.
Clyde Forbes addressed the Com-
mission and told the board that the
City needs to have additional lights
installed in the downtown area as
well as at the Northwest community
park. Clyde Forbes also agreed to
serve on the Advisory Committee.
The City Commission requested
the City Manager to solicit volunteers
to become involved with the Adviso-
ry Committee. The board explained
that 10 or more members on this Ad-
visory Committee would be a good
working committee. Commissioner
Glen Thigpen asked that the City
Commission have an opportunity to
review the Advisory Committee's
agenda before their first meeting.

Thursday, February 15, is the regularly scheduled meeting at Post 91. The meeting
will be preceded by an all you can eat donation spaghetti dinner. Come out for dinner
and stay for the meeting. The Post meeting will begin at 7:00 PM.
Next month, the American Legion will be eighty-eight years in continuing service to
America. All Posts generally have some type of celebration for this event. Post 149 will
have a covered dish dinner on March 6 at 7:00 PM to celebrate the Legion Birthday.
Plan to attend and bring a favorite dinner dish to share.
I was going through some files at home and I ran across the newspaper clipping I
saved about George Cole, the Department of Florida's Firefighter of the year for 2000.
The write-up spoke of the efforts of Mr. Cole in building the Fire Station at Spring
Ridge, and those that worked with him at this Volunteer Fire Station. Then, just five
years later, Fire Captain Don Alexander was the Department of Florida's Firefighter of
the Year 2005. When we think of heroes in our midst, the Volunteer Firefighter comes to
mind, along with other volunteers that work to keep us safe, like the men and women of
the Crime Watch Patrols. The community should recognize the efforts put forth by these
volunteers every day to keep our community safe.
As one volunteer firefighter said before, "Just bring some cold Gatorade or water to
the fire scene for the firemen to drink when the fire is out." The firemen don't have the
time to stop and pick up a bottle or two on the way to the fire, and sometimes the Crime
Watch is there to keep the roads clear for the rescue crews. Remember these heroes in
our midst, too.
Keep our Armed Forces 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 in service to America, helping out however and whenever we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

By Cindy Jo Ayers
Last Tuesday, my dear husband
John, bless his heart, had a birthday.
Not just any birthday but the BIG 5-
0. We postponed the big celebration
until the weekend. J's birthday is
Thursday of this week so we all got
together to celebrate the boys' birth-
days together over dinner Saturday
I must say since young J. was turn-
ing 23 'and John was celebrating his
50th birthday, Old John had to take a
great deal of kidding. Our Adam our
son-in-law made several references
to John climbing on his Little Rascal
scooter and coming to the dinner ta-.
ble. He also took it on the chin about
now being too old to remember any-
thing or, see anything. The evening
was filled with laughter and most of
it was at John's expense. I must say a'
good time was had by all.
It sure was nice for John and I to
have our children and their spouses
all gathered at the table again. Even
though it was notmy BIG 50th birth-
day I got the benefit of having every-
one together.

It was about 1967 the first time I
tasted the following recipe. Then a
few years ago while eating a salad
at the nearly famous Ivy House Res-
taurant I kept thinking I've eaten
this salad dressing before. Now, no
doubt Mrs. Hale who owns the Ivy
House has changed the recipe a bit.
I'm pretty sure she doesn't put two
tablespoons of mustard in her dress-
ing I'm guessing she only uses one
tablespoon of mustard. Knowing how
good of a cook Mrs. Hale is I'm sure
she must make her own improve-

Willy Coarsey and his family. It
takes a lot of people to put together
an event of that magnitude and we
want to thank everyone that took part
in the planning, preparation, delivery
Sof meals, and cleanup. Thank you to

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
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. 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.
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
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 I o'fthe taxing
year, follow this procedure:
I) 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 ollice 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 ofyourt property, we will welcome tihe
opportunity to review all the pertinent fhcts.
Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year -
Who is responsible for the taxes?
A. The new ow\er is responsible, however ifl there is
insufficient property to satisfyl the taxes due, lthe owner oil
January I would be responsible ifor the difference. Most title
companies do not do a search of tihe tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your rcaltor, attorney or
closing agent to avoid problems in this area.

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.
S* Please include your estimate of fair market value and
tle original cost of the item on your return. They are
important considerations in determining an accurate
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.

(352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208

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 asssed 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

"Pray always," so the Bible says,

Bits & Pieces From The
Quilters And
Crafters Of North
Gilchrist County
Seems to me that there is a tug-
of-war game going on betweeri that
gruff and grumpy 'Ole Man Winter
and that wisp of a maiden Ms. Spring.
Really now...it's 28 one minute, and
780 the next. All of nature is in a pan-
ic. They're like starlets getting ready

for the "'red carpet" at the Academy
Awards...What shall I wear?
Shrubs and trees are asking one an-
other...what do you think, the somber
tones of winter, drab gray and boring
brown or bright green and cheerful
pinks and fuschias?
' And it's just as perplexing for us
humans. What shall I wear...shorts, a
tee shirt and flip flops or long johns,
blue jeans, flannel shirt, and a sheep-
lined jacket, gloves, hat and fleece-
lined boots? I guess start out with

that layered look and prepare to peel
like a banana later on...or not. 'Cause
no matter what the forecast is, be pre-
pared. Just because Mr. Groundhog
didn't see his shadow...it don't mean
a thing if it don't feel like Spring.
But none the less on Wednesday,
January 31st, 21 Joyful Hearts and
one visitor, Dee Atwater, Elaine Ne-
meth's sister, made it to our "Make It
and Take It" day.
Barbara Strom got everyone, that
wanted to, started on their quilted
purses. And the ladies took to it like
a duck takes to water. Diana Lynn,
Ann Mangone, Lurie Twist, Lu Row-
land, Elaine Nemeth, Jane Boyd
and Mary Lou Ryder all worked on
purses and came up with lovely de-
signs. They will complete them at
the February 28th, meeting. I'm sure
if anyone else is interested Barbara
will help you catch up.
Cathy Strom, Sylvia Arthur, Heidi
Kamp, Alice Binns, and Betty Hicks,
all busied themselves with their
Swedish weaving while Bonnie Ed-
wards painted a sign for a' party Di-
ana was having at the Safe program
at Bell Elementary School. Marvine
Deer worked on a quilt started by her
Lera Townsend stuck with her cro-,
cheting, Ann Taylor and I worked on
a craft project for Diana's kids at Safe
and Barbara Myrick and Madeline
Norman visited with everyone.
It was a special treat to have Mad-
eline, Sylvia, Heidi, Lurie and Jane
with us. We haven't seen them in a
while and we have missed having
them in our midst.
All in all, it was a joyful day shared
with so many loving andjoyful hearts.
The time passed quickly and much
too soon. We said our goodbyes and
promised to meet on February 7th.
And so we did...meet that is, on
Wednesday, February 7th for a Val-
entine's party with just a little work
thrown in for good measure.
Barbara Myrick, Pat Luka, Ann
Mangone, all sat right down and like
good do bees quilted up a storm.
Ruth Wilkerson busied herself with
her knitting while Lu Rowland, Alice
Binns, Jackie Moore, Betty Hicks,

and Cathy Strom all were Swedish
weaving wonders. Myrle Gilkey
stuck with her crocheting while an-
ticipating the party and all the good
The rest of us...Diana Lynn, Barba-
ra Strom, Bonnie Edwards, Marvine
Deer, Mary Lou Ryder, Ann Taylor,
Olga and myself made no bones
about it...We were here to "PARTY."
As usual, Cathy did a fantastic
job decorating. Red and white lacey
hearts and all the trimmings set the
mood and you could feel the love in
that room.
The food...what can I tell you?
The tables were ladened with sand-
wiches, veggies, cheeses, chips, dips,
candies, cakes, cookies, salads, dev-
iled eggs, and I'm sure I've forgotten
some things but it was simply mouth-
watering, scrumptiously delicious.
And what was even a bigger treat
than all of that marvelous food was
that hubby George brought Paulene
Martin to join in the fun. She is do-
ing much better and we give all the
glory to God for her recovery. We
have all been praying for her and will
continue to do so. ,
All good things must come to an
end and so it was with our feast. We
were all full as a tick and most of us
planned to take a nap as soon as we
reached home.
It is always such a blessing to see
the love that goes into such a simple
thing as a Valentine's Day party. Ev-
eryone goes out of their way to show
they care...the decorations, the food,
setting things up, cleaning up, it's
done in the spirit of love. And all
God's children said "Amen."
I can't help but think of our
neighbors to the south of us who just
recently went through such devastat-
ing tornados. Just like us, they went
through their daily routine that day
only to be awakened and find their
world, literally, turned upside-down.
It could have been us...there but for
the Grace of God go I. We were un-
der a tonado watch and we were ex-
pecting severe weather. How blessed
we were to have escaped the wrath of
I was especially moved by a wom-
an being interviewed in front of a
pile of rubble that had once been her
home. It was hard to believe that she
had survived being trapped beneath

it all.
The reporter asked her several
questions and then said to the wom-
an, "you were really lucky," to which
the woman replied, "it wasn't luck, it
was a blessing from God."
I wonder how often we use that
phrase or one similar about luck or
about being lucky or even being un-
lucky, as if there is such a thing as
luck. The dictionary says that luck
is 1. a: a force that brings good for-
tune or adversity or b: the events or
circumstances that operate for or
against an individual.
Huh...that's odd. I guess what
some folks call luck others call God.
As for me...I'm going to stick with
God, it works for me and it will for
you as well if you just stop and think
about it.
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, February 21st. We will
celebrate our February birthdays:
Diana Lynn, Matty Turner, Martha
Foster, and Paulene Martin. We meet
at 9:00 a.m. at the North Gilchrist
Fire Department Building on County
Road 138. We'd love to have you join
us...bring your lunch and a smile. If
you quilt, sew, knit, whatever...fine.
If you don't just come and visit with
us. 'Til next time.

Winning Season
by Cora Lord
Trenton Middle School girls did
extremely well this year -winning
nine of ten basketball games. This
year's team was composed of three
sixth graders, nine seventh graders,
and two eighth graders. Foes for the
season included Bell, who won the
first game of the season by one point,

Bronson, Mayo, Steinhatchee, and
Oak Hall. The team averaged 25;
points per game.
Returning seasoned seventh grad-
ers were Maegan Gillyard, Taylor
Foster, Brittany Norris, Breanna
Stalvey, Alyson Gargano, Allie Lang,
and Melissa Vanderheyden. Joining
them were Hannah Buckler and Dan-
yal Langford who played for the first

time this year.
The eighth graders included a to-
tally new face, Alyssa McElroy, and
a returnee after a year, Kelby Carter.
First year sixth graders included
Emma Kate Redd, Sarah Huff, and
Kendra Stephenson.
Top scorers for the year included
Maegan Gillyard whq ended the
season with 88 points who scored
19 points and 17 points for her high
games. Other high scorers were Bre-
anna Stalvey with 48 points, Hannah
Buckler with 36 points, and two who
each scored 23 points, Taylor Foster
and Alyssa McElroy.
This was a team with relatively
little game experience who proved
themselves willing to learn and capa-
ble of out practicing, most likely, and
outplaying the area teams. All the
team members quickly learned their
position and worked to decrease turn-
overs,improve shooting and rebound-
ing and to play as a team. The team
was coached by Cora Lord, Family
and Consumer Science Teacher at
Trenton High School.

news recently about an individual
who has informed pet owners that they
must surrender their pets to this per-

there is no ordinance in Gilchrist

happen to you please notify the prop-

ALERT Academy Unit
36 To Help Some Of
Gilchrist County's
This Week

They're here. The ALERT Acade-
my Unit 36 team arrived on February
11th. The group of 25 men is here
working this week. They are doing
a fine job of house repair and/or lawn
work for Gilchrist County widows
and disabled veterans.
ALERT, which stands for Air,
Land, Emergency Resource Team,
has its headquarters in Big Sandy,
Texas. About five weeks ago the
Character Council invited the Unit
to come for a week long project of
service to our community. With the
assistance of 48 individuals and busi-
nesses, ALERT's motto of "Ready to
Serve" is a reality in our county.
In 1994, the ALERT Academy
was founded. It's mission is to train
young men and women in techniques
of caring for others in emergency
situations; however, they are also
trained to serve by using acquired
skills in carpentry, tree trimming,
lawn' maintenance, demolition, fire
fighting, policing, first aid, underwa-
ter and high level rescue, mud slide
and hurricane work as well as a host
of other ways to assist people. They
truly do live up to their motto. So if,
you happen to see a group of young
men in your neighborhood, wearing
dark blue "ALERT" shirts and dark
blue hats, you will know why.they
are here and what they are about.
There are also other activities
planned while the Team is here.

They include lunch with the Rotary
Club, joining teens at respective local
churches for youth meetings, an eve-
ning with American Legion Post 91
and a Youth Rally. The Youth Rally
is opened to the public. It will be held
on Friday, February 17th, from 6:00
p.m.-8:00 p.m. at the Trenton.Depot.,
Do make plans to attend. Not only
will there be free food and drinks,
live music by the Philman Family
Band, but individual team members
will be sharing what moral character
means to them. This is good time for
anyone to come learn what ALERT is
all about.

Springhouse Quilters
Springhouse Quilters have started
plans for their 2007 quilt show to be
held in October. It is anticipated that
there will be 150 beautiful quilts, all
constructed since 2005, ready for the
show. Springhouse Quilters will be
inviting other quilters to enter their
quilts in the show. Those wishing
to have a quilt judged, will be given
an opportunity to have an American
Sewing Guild Certified judge com-
plete the judging.
There will be categories for large
and small quilts, wall hangings, fab-
ric art, and workshop and challenge
quilts. During the 2005 show, there
were at least 700 visitors viewing
the show and enjoying the beautiful
quilts on display. Springhouse mem-
bers are busy finishing up many of
their 2006 quilts for the show.
Complete details and information
on the show will be provided as the
date of the show approaches.
The February workshop will be on
the 27th with Joyce Snoddy teaching
the membership a redbird Petal Play


pattern. This is a beautiful wall hang-
ing made in a 3-D setting with a red-
bird appearing through a window.

ciety staff representative, Jamie Bel-

The American Cancer Society ex-
tends an invitation to all cancer survi-
vors and their families to participate
in Relay For Life. It's a unique com-
munity event that allows individuals
from all walks of life to join in the
fight against cancer. Last year, more
than three million Americans partici-
pated in Relay For Life and more than
500,000 cancer survivors walked the
opening laps.
At the event, cancer survivors will
kick off the Relay by walking the Sur-
vivors' Victory Lap around the track.
Then members of each team take to
the track and one person from each
team remains on the track throughout
the entire 18-24 hours.
Relay For Life began as one man's
battle against cancer and a journey to
raise funds to support the American
Cancer Society. In May 1985, Dr.
Gordy Klatt walked, jogged, and ran
for 24 hours around a track in Taco-
ma, Washington. His run alone raised
$27,000. 17 years and eight countries
later, Relay For Life raised $265 mil-
lion in 2002. All of the money raised
goes to our mission of saving lives
through research, advocacy, patient
services and education.
The American Cancer Society is
still recruiting teams to participate in
this event. For more information or
if you are interested in volunteering,
please call (352) 376-6866 ext. 119.

munities are holding Relay For Life

Dear Gilchrist County Fair Booster,

As you know, this year's Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show is just a couple of
weeks away. We are again working to raise funds to help buy animals that our FFA and 4-H
members will show in this year's fair. Our main goal is to help establish a minimum sale
price so the youth of our county are all supported equally. We also support the FFA Chap-
ters and 4 -H Clubs of Gilchrist County by trying to purchase their animals. With your help,
last year we were able to raise approximately $17,000.00 with which we bought 30
animals. The children that benefited from your gracious donations all left this experience
with a huge smile on their face.

Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund raising
process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to 2079 SW
75th Ave Bell Fl 32619. Please give Ronnie a call at 352-463-6143 or Terry (352)494-4638
if you have questions or if you would like to personally help with this project.

Again we really appreciate your help and look forward to your participation this year.

uals from all walks of life to join in
the fight against cancer.
This year's event is going to be held
at Newberry High School on April 13
and 14, 2007. Last year, we were able
to honor over 15 survivors with 9
fundraising teams participating from
local businesses and organizations.
With the entire community rallying
behind us, we were able to raise a to-
tal of$15,000-in just 4 months!
To sign up for this year's event,
please visit our website: www.ac-
sevents.org/relay/fl/newberry or call
your local American Cancer Society
staff representative, Jamie Bellamy
at (352) 376-6866 ext. 119.
Local community members are en-
couraged to rally those around you
to form a team and join in the fight
against cancer! Recruit individuals
from your family, clubs, schools,
Businesses, churches, service groups,
public employee groups, health care
professionals, and others to form
teams. All of the money raised goes
to our mission of saving lives through
research, advocacy, patient services
and education.
In each community, cancer survi-
vors are invited to begin the Relay by
walking the Survivors' Victory Lap
around the track. Then members of
the teams take to the track and one
person from each team remains on
the track throughout the entire 18
hours. After dark, a Luminaria Cere-
mony is held in memory of those who
have lost their battle with cancer and
in honor of survivors.
Relay For Life began as one man's
battle against cancer and a journey to
raise funds to support the American
Cancer Society.
In May of 1985, Dr. Gordy Klatt
walked, jogged, and ran for 24 hours
around a track in Tacoma, Wash. His
run alone raised $27,000. Twenty
years later, Relay For Life raised
$350 million in 2005.

If Tomorrow Starts
Without Me
I just wanted to take a brief mo-
ment to share....Only 10 months ago
we lost Sam Ferguson as he lost his
battle with lung cancer. On some
days it seems like a lifetime ago--
-dealing with the day to day stuff,
knowing he should still be here and
then there are the other days when it
seems as if it were just yesterday, and
knowing that he wanted to still be
here. Just the other day I had one of
those "Just Yesterday" days and that
is what I wanted to share.
I was notified in January by the Mo-
rocco Shrine Temple in Jacksonville
that on January 28th, they would be
honoring all the Nobles we had lost
in the year of 2006 with their annual
Memorial Service. My heart sank---
Sam was on that list. I knew the im-
portance of going to Jacksonville on
that day, I knew of the desire to go,
I knew the dread of going. For Sam
and the boys, yes I wanted to go. For
me, why would I want to open any
part of me that I thought was heal-
ing? How selfish that thought was.
As my family members Volunteered
to spend the day with the three ofus-

r traveling time included, how could I
even consider not going--wasting a
perfect opportunity to show the boys
r another part of their daddy's life and
Sthe importance of being a shriner,
f helping others? At the end of the ser-
vice, all I could think was how glad I
was that I had decided to go.
I share this moment not to bring up
the hurt of our loss or to remind any-
one else of the friend they lost when
Sam left us, but to share an absolutely
beautiful poem that may actually fill
a little hurt that you may be feeling
of your own. We've all lost some-
one we love and in this small county,
each time you lose a family mem-
ber, we've lost a friend. I asked the
Morocco Shrine Temple Chaplain to
please send me a copy of the poem he
'used as a tool during this service to
comfort us all. Attached to my copy
was a note---"I hope you received
comfort in the message delivered and
the joy in this poem. They were in-
tended to enlighten your memories,
to share in your loss of a loved one
and to inspire hope in the future.
May God continue to grant you many
blessings and keep you steadfast as
you face each tomorrow."
"If tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
If the sun should rise and find your
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my
And took me by the hand.
And said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind,
All those I dearly love;
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much left yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you;
I thought of all our yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all that we shared,
And.all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile; .
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly
I might miss some tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked through Heaven's
I felt so much at home,
When God looked down and smiled
at me,
From his great golden throne.
He said, 'This is Eternity,
And all I've promised you.
Today, your life on earth is past,
But here life starts anew.'
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day is the same way,
There's no longing for the past.
So when tomorrow starts without
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart."
Author Unknown
I read something in between these
lines on that day, it sent chills through
me. It wasn't just the loss of Sam but
maybe myself understanding. If in
some way this helps, you and your
loved ones, then I am so very glad,
because somehow in an unexplain-
able way it helped me hearing this
as I placed a red rose there for Sam.
Just knowing that he will always be
with me and that someone had put it
in words where I never could before.
Of course I still cry and probably al-
ways will, but I know Sam loved me
as your loved ones loved you.
I thank John and Cindy Jo for al-
lowing this space to share these
words with you and to Mr. Billy Col-
lier, Chaplain for a beautiful service
recognizing all the many Nobles
(over 150) and their families that
were honored a couple weeks ago.
Sam was one of many great Nobles
of the Shrine.

How One City Got The
Muck Out
Many south St. Petersburg resi-
dents remember Lake Maggiore as
the place where children and families
could go to enjoy themselves, fish-
ing, swimming and playing along the
water's edge. But in the 1980s, five
feet of muck and high toxicity levels
ended the fun and forced the closure
of the lake.
Florida's rivers and lakes, like
Lake Maggiore, have long been the
state's crown jewels. Residents and
visitors alike enjoy the unique qual-
ity of life here in Florida, one that
revolves around Florida's abundant
waterways. Some of the threats to
our waterways are obvious a pipe-
line directly discharging pollutants,
for instance. But other threats, such
as stormwater runoff, result from a
combination of events that cause a
decline in water quality, wildlife and
Stormwater runoff is rainwater
that flows over our roadways, lawns
and parking lots, and flows into our
waterways. It carries oil, dirt, heavy
metals, fertilizers and pesticides into
our lakes, rivers, ponds and estuar-
ies. The result of stormwater runoff
is increased levels of nitrates, which
force algae blooms, invasive plant
growth and fish kills. Ultimately, a
layer of nutrient-rich sediment coats
the lake's once-sandy bottom. Wa-
terways severely affected by storm-
water runoff become toxic to both
humans and wildlife. Stormwater is
the biggest problem facing Florida's
Recognizing the dangers of storm-
water runoff, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection (FDEP)
took the first step to counter the
alarming rise in water pollution. It
set, up scientifically determined pol-
lution limits called Total Maximum.
Daily Loads (TMDLs) for nearly
200 impaired lakes in declining wa-
tersheds. While identifying impaired
lakes is important to water resource
.protection, the process of actually re-
storing impaired bodies of water may
be even more important.
Like many other municipalities
throughout the state, the City of St.
Petersburg was struggling with the
idea of restoring a 380-acre commu-
nity landmark, Lake Maggiore. The
city recognized that restoring the lake
was a priority for Tampa Bay and its
entire watershed. The restoration
project included the ,.oiis.rrLcti:nl pf
fivealnum-injegtieqO stations t~orFat3
stormwater runoff, the removal of in-
vasive plants and the replacement of
an outfall structure on Salt Creek, a
small waterway that once connected
Lake Maggiore to Tampa Bay.
But they were looking for alterna-
tives to one key aspect of the proj-
ect: the dredging of the lake's muck.
Traditional dredging projects weren't
going to work they didn't have
space available near the lake to dis-
pose of wet muck and they wanted
the community to be able to use the
lake while the dredging was taking
Jahna Dredging presented to the
city a new technology that dredges
and rapidly 'dewaters nutrient-rich,
sediment, or muck, from the bottom
of a lake, pond or river, and returns
fresh, clean water back into the wa-
terbody. City staff knew it was a
technology that would work in St.
Petersburg's urban environment, and
it would be the first project of its kind.
in Florida.
The dredging of Lake Maggiore
began in the fall of 2004. Nearly two
years later, approximately 1.3 million
cubic yards of muck were removed
from the lake and trucked to a farm

in, a nearby county.
While this technology is not the
only way to restore Florida's water-
ways, it is an innovative way to solve
the muck disposal problem and leave
the lake open to recreational users.
And this technology can be' used
around the state.
"The community really appreci-
ates the work that has been done ...
because they wanted to see the lake
revitalized ... it's .an intricate part
of the city," said Earnest Williams,
a member of the St. Petersburg City
Council, District 6. "We've had
things, such as racing on the lake, we
used to have a fish camp on the lake,
and the community would like to see
some of those activities restored -
especially the fishing and the boating
on the lake."
The Lake Maggiore Restoration
Project is just one example of what
can be achieved when a desire to
create change meets the innovation
capable of making that change. How-
ever, we can help protect lakes from
stormwater runoff so that these con-
ditions don't occur at all by follow-
ing a few simple guidelines.
Limit the use of pesticides and fer-
tilizers in your landscape, avoid in-
secticides and herbicides they can
be toxic to wildlife, put lawn clip-
pings in the trash can instead of in the
gutter, limit the amount of pavement,
redirect stormwater runoff so that it
doesn't flow directly into our water-
ways, never pour chemicals down
storm drains.

Police Chief Finds
Officer Wright
Did Not Use
Excessive Force In
Dealing With Trenton
(Continued from Page One)
officer did push Mr. Shearin down
nor did they state the officer pulled
the hose out of Mr. Shearin's hand.
Chief Smith's investigation re-
vealed that Mrs. Shearin did have a
confrontation with the officer out by
the road that was very intense. At one
point during this discussion the offi-
cer told Mrs. Shearin to "Shut your
mouth and leave" and the officer
walked away,
Chief Smith's investigation includ-
ed several interviews with identified
witnesses that were at the scene at the
time of the fire.
Chief Smith's investigation con-
cluded that based on the preliminary
investigation Officer Wright did not
use excessive force to get Mr. Shea-
rin out of the area that he had deter-
mined was too close to the active fire.

Durden is Chairman of the Board,
Ronnie McQueen is the County Ad-
ministrator, Carlos Perez is the Di-

David Turner. Ron Mills, Assistant
Director for Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Management, invites everyone
in the Gilchrist County community
to call and get signed up for future
C.E.R.T. classes. This is a 10-week
course which is normally taught in
the evening. The information they
teach is useful to all of us in our. ev-
eryday lives and by participating in
the local team you will also be pro-
viding an invaluable service to your
community. There are no age re-
strictions and all graduates receive a
C.E.R.T. pack which has emergency
gear for them to use. The best thing

have to provide is your time. If you

The witnesses reported in the inves-
tigation that Mr. Shearin fell down
while the officer was trying to get the
resident out of the area of the fire. Mr.
Shearin was not pushed down. None
of .the witnesses interviewed could
state that they saw the officer pull the
hose from Mr. Shearin's hand. The
investigation identifies evidence ob-
tained through documents and sworn
statements that indicates Officer

everyone to read and obey the Ten
Commandments; as a lawyer, I can
think of little worse than for govern-
mental officials to tell us to do it."
The Establishment Clause in the
First Amendilment of the Constitu-
tion guarantees that government will
not prescribe religion. Erecting one
version of the Ten Commandments
sends a signal to others that they are
not welcome and will be treated un-
fairly, the ACLU said.
In June 2005, when the Supreme
Court struck down state-sponsored
Ten Commandments displays in sev-
eral Kentucky courthouses, the Court
confirmed that the Constitution for-
bids the government from displaying
such inherently religious monuments
without a clear secular purpose. At
the same time, the Court also upheld
a Ten Commandments display in
Texas, but only because that 40-year-
old monument was placed in a non-
religious setting among numerous
historical documents and markers.
The Ten Commandments monument
in Dixie County is not flanked by any
other historical monuments.
"There are many different versions
of the 10 Commandments includ-
ing Catholic, Jewish and Protestant,"
said Harriet Kurlander, Executive Di-
rector of the Southeast Region of the
American Jewish Congress. "When
government endorses one particular
religious, group's \r version of the Ten
Commandments, it sends an imper-

Wright was attempting to remove
Mr. Shearin from a potentially harm-
ful position. None of the witnesses
were reported to have stated that Of-

Smith's investigation revealed there
is no evidence that implicates Officer
Wright in any criminal misconduct
through the use of excessive force.
