Gilchrist Commission Moves

Forward To Improve Graded Roads

by John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
agreed to move forward in approv-
ing $100,000 of Road Improvement
revenues that the board budgeted for
2006-2007 to improve specific high
volume traffic roads in the county.
The board identified the following
four roads to be improved: Southeast
40th Street, 1 mile; Northwest 47th
Place, 1.25 miles; Northeast 30th Av-
enue from CR 337 to Northeast 80th
Avenue, 1 mile and Southeast 90th
Avenue, 1.5 miles.
Justin Watson, Gilchrist County
Road Superintendent explained to
the five-member board that the road
department would need to rent a

grinder/mixer and a roller to mix
existing road materials. The road im-
proving process is expected to call
for additional limerock and the road
will be re-shaped to provide a crown
where water will run-off the roadway
The Road Superintendent explained
to the board in the February 19 meet-
ing that the Road Department did
not have the necessary equipment to
improve the roads. Watson requested
. the board rent a Caterpillar RM 300
Mixer for $15,000 for one month. He
also requested the board rent a Cat-
erpillar C5533E Single Drum Roller
for $3,100. "With these two pieces
of equipment, the road department

should be able to complete these road
improvements within one month,"
Watson explained. The board agreed
to rent the equipment and allow the
road department to begin the neces-
sary process in establishing the utility
lines along the designated right-of-
ways on the roads.
The board identified the purpose
of the Road Improvement FuAd is to
pay for road projects that need imme-
diate attention to address serious road
deterioration. It is the County Com-
mission's intent to continue to budget
revenues for the Road Improvement
Fund, but such funding is subject to
annual budget constraints.

Gilchrist County Sheriffs Budget

Appeal Hearing Set For March 5

In Tallahassee

by John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Sheriff and
the Gilchrist County Commission
will be involved in a 2006-07 Budget
Appeal Hearing Monday, March 5,
2007 in the Capital Room. 1802, Tal-
lahassee, Florida.,
Gilchrist County Sheriff David P.
Turner filed the budget appeal when
the Board of County Commission-
ers did not approve $365,519 of the
Sheriff's Office 2006-2007 budget
requests. The Sheriff's Office entire
budget request was $3,420,658. The
Gilchrist County Commission ap-
proved $3,055,139, which reduced
the Sheriff's Office budget by 11%.
The Gilchrist County Commission
did not approve: 1. $74,814 for two
additional deputies to staff an ex-
panded courthouse and $86,000 for
three associated vehicles. 2. $53,060

for one investigative position: 3.
$118,500 for four vehicles, one for
the investigative position and three to
replace older (high mileage) vehicles.
4. $33,145 for one new civilian posi-
tion for the corrections budget area.
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice budget is comprised of four bud-
get departments: Law Enforcement,
Corrections, Judicial, and Communi-
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion approved $352,805 in additional
revenues for the Sheriff's Office for
Personnel Services, Operating Ex-
penses, and Capital Outlay. Of these
revenues, $324,922 were identified
'salary increases to assist in the re-
cruitment and retention of deputies in
the Sheriff's Office. A new position
was approved for the courthouse and
the officer's insurance premium is
paid by Gilchrist County.

The budget appeal hearing will be
held before the Florida Administra-
tion Commission. In this hearing, a
representative of the Sheriff's Office
will have 20 minutes to present their
appeal for additional revenues. The
Gilchrist County Commission will
follow the Sheriff's presentation as a
representative will be given 20 min-
utes to present the Gilchrist County
Commission's reason for funding the
2006-2007 Sheriff's Office Budget.
The Sheriff's Office and the County
Commission will then be given. 10
minutes each to rebut any point made.
The Administration Hearing Panel
will then take time to ask questions
of both parities if they so choose.
The Florida Administration Com-
mission is expected to make a ruling
in this appeal within 30 day s follow -
ing the hearing.

The Gilchrist County Commission
discussed the proposed paving of two
roads in Rolling Oaks subdivision
with Mike Myers during the Febru-
ary 19 meeting. A property owner
and supporter of the proposed road
construction for over two years, My-
ers asked the board if they had deter-
mined the approximate cost of the
entire project.
Myers had originally proposed to
the board to pave SE 62nd Ct and SE
67th Ct. and both of these streets link
to SE 70th Street that connects to SR
The board discussed the project be-
ing funded by private funds at a fixed
rate of 6% interest. This discussion
identified cost for the project from
$536.00 to $710.00 per year for the
estimated 50 property owners in this

subdivision. "There may be some
property owners that may not be able
to afford this," Mike Myers explained
to the board.
Gilchrist County Clerk Joe Gilliam
discussed with the board the pos-
sibility of $150,000 spread over 10-
20 years with the county that could
possibly allow the property owners a
reduced rate of $263.00 a year.
The board agreed with Mike My-
ers that before the project goes any
further, a Public Hearing should be
held to allow the property owners
and residents an opportunity to have
more information involving this pro-
posed paving project. A Public Hear-
ing was scheduled to be held March
19 at 6:30 p.m. in the Gilchrist Com-
mission Meeting Room.

Gilchrist County Cattlemen Hold Steak Dinner

Steak Dinner Raises
Cattle producers and friends in sur-
rounding counties as well as Gilchrist
County attended the 6th annual Cat-
tlemen's Steak Dinner last Thursday
night, February 15, at the Trenton El-
.ementary Cafeteria. The large crowd
of around 300 enjoyed a wonderful
steak cooked by the event organizer
Mr. Jim Jones and several volunteers.
Mr. Jones also known in the area as
"Big Jim" is a fourth generation cat-
tle producer in Gilchrist County and
the Gilchrist County Cattlemen's As-
sociation President. Florida current-
ly ranks 12th in the nation for cattle
Several years ago when the Florida
counties began paying a per head as-
sessment for all Florida beef cattle to
the state cattlemen's association Mr.
Jones and the local cattlemen became
concerned and as Mr. Jones said, "We
needed to get that bill paid" so he or-
ganized what has become a yearly
event that is supported by the com-
Not only were those who attended
treated to a wonderful steak din-
ner but they also enjoyed wonderful
homemade desserts which are baked
by the wives of the local Cattlemen's
Association members. Hitchcock's
Foodway and their manager Ryan
Weaver go out of their way each
year to provide good steaks at a spe-
cial price to support this worthwhile
In 2006 according the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture Beef Census,
Gilchrist County had 8,000 head of
beef cattle. The county is required to
pay an assessment .0375 per head.
The funds raised at the steak dinner
are used to pay this assessment and to
help out with other dues, educational
activities and expenses incurred by

the Gilchrist Counts Cattlemen's As-
sociation throughout the \ ear.

Division Of Forestry
Recommends Refraining
From Outdoor Burning
Due to the windy conditions and
low relative humidity predicted for
North Central Florida tomorrow, the
Florida Division of Forestry is ask-
ing residents to refrain from all out-
door burning activities until weather
conditions improve. The cold front
that passed through this area over the
last 24 hours is bringing with it wind
gusts up to 23 mph and low relative

humidity at 18 percent. Both weather
conditions are indicators for wildfire
Escaped outdoor pile/trash burning
is the number one cause of wildfire in
the state of Florida year round. Winds
gusting up to 23 mph would certainly
assist in spreading firebrands, causing
an escaped fire. Even though several
weather systems have brought some
rain across North Central Florida
in the past months, it has not been
enough to drastically improve the
current rain deficit conditions.
For further information, please
contact your local Division of For-
estry office at (352) 955-2005 or visit

Property Tax Reform and
Homestead Exemption
It sure seems the hottest topics to
come out of Tallahassee most recent-
ly is the consideration of Tax Reform
-in the Sunshine State and the Gover-
nor to fulfill his campaign promise to
provide the residents in Florida with
a $50,000 Homestead Exemption.
"Preliminary figures we are seeing
'involving the proposed Homestead
Exemption in Gilchrist County are
not going to be good for the General
Revenue Budget," explained County
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison Jr.
Commissioner Harrison discussed the
impact on the taxable value that the
Homestead Exemption would have
on Gilchrist County if the exemption
,were to pass during the 2006-07 bud-
get year.
Commissioner Harrison as the for-
ner Gilchrist County Property Ap-
-praiser has experienced the loss of
ad valorum revenue from Homestead
'Exemption in the past. He explained
,that the possibility of the loss of up to
$1.2 million dollars in revenues from
the General Revenue budget would
be difficult for this small rural county
to adjust to. Harrison requested ihe
board to consider if the Homestead
have to be identified, as the diter-
ent county-departments are planning
their proposed budgets.
In this constantly changing,
growth-experiencing time that this
'county is undergoing, the county is
:striving to improve on the services

they provide. It will be tough for the
local government officials to identify
what services need to be trimmed vs.
what programs will continue to be
funded at the present level of funds
At the present time the Gilchrist
County Commission has an estimated
$500,000 remaining in their General
Revenue Reserve account. On March
5th, the Gilchrist County Sheriff will
present his budget appeal to the Ad-
ministration Commission, Policy and
Budget/Public Safety Unit of the Of-
fice of the Governor to seek $365,519
more in funding. If the Commission
decides to approve the Sheriff's re-
quest, then Gilchrist County could
possibly only have $150,000 in re-
It appears with all of the projects
that Gilchrist County is striving to
complete and just that many more are
planned for in the future, it could be
tough to fund all the needs that are
out there.

By Lauren Rudd
As is generally the case, last week's
Valentine's Day column proposing
that every woman needs to establish
her own investment portfolio, a
portfolio that she manages single
handily using a deep discount
brokerage firm, stepped on a few
male toes and egos.
It seems that a certain element of
the male population is convinced that
they are better able to solely handle
the investment side of their family's
finances. Even more disturbing were
the comments stating that putting
aside 10 percent of your gross income
was too much of a burden.
Finally, there were those people
who said they simply cannot bring
themselves to establish a stock
portfolio. The reasons varied. For
example, Wall Street is too risky
or they will get around to it "later."
After all they still have plenty of time
before retirement and by the way,
isn't that what Social Security is for?
My response is that you might want
to give some thought to the following
data collected by an independent
panel under the auspices of the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce, to which I
have added some commentary.
To start, 57 percent of working
adults have less than $100,000 saved
for retirement, while 28 percent have
less than $10,000. It looks as if the
fast food restaurants will have a
substantial labor pool to draw on in
the years ahead.
Given the above, only 29 percent of
working adults plan to postpone their
retirement as a result of insufficient
savings. At least that is what they are
saying now. Let's see what happens
when the harsh light of reality sets
Fully 52 percent of working women
and 39 percent of working men are
not comfortable making their own
retirement savings decisions. This
is probably the most discouraging
statement of all. ., :. :
Setting up tax deferred and/oQr
non-tax -deferred-portfolios at "a
deep discount brokerage house is.
not difficult. Why give away large
chunks of your returns to a stranger
who will do what you are capable of
Only 42 percent of working adults
know how much money they will
need to live comfortably during
retirement. The answer is readily
available, usually without charge,
from numerous sources.
Finally, 46 percent of working
adults feel that they do not, or will
not, have enough money to maintain
their standard of living in retirement.
This does not come as any surprise
given the above answers and the
hundreds of letters I have received
from readers over the years.
Now, you have two choices. You
can stand there like a deer caught
in a car's headlights and do nothing
with the hope that between your
retirement program at work (if you
have one) and the largesse of the
Federal Government, the problem
will take care of itself.
Lacking that, your only other choice
is to act now and start building that
blue chip stock portfolio. However,

Salt In Crystal Shakers
(Kent Heaton)

Setting a fine table is a beautiful picture. The finest china
is Iaid careful, in exacting positions with silverware in the
correct amount and placement. Crystal glasses shimmer with
the reflective light of refreshments .filling each position.
Cloth napkins matching the soft tones of the tablecloth
enhance the visual appeal for the patron. Every effort is
made to present the best offerings of presentation for the
enjoyment of the meal. Placed on both ends of the table are
the finest crystal shakers filled with seasoning. Everything is
ready; nothing has been omitted.
Church buildings dot the landscape throughout our
country. Many are ornate and beautiful with all the
amenities of a modem age. Spacious auditoriums are filled
with soft pews that offer comfort for lengthy engagements
of activities. Visual panoramas light up the screens with
words of exhortation and praise. Voices blend together with
joyous exaltation as hymns echo in the service. Powerful
messages of hope, glory, duty and exhortation ring from the
pulpit. Classes are filled with happy hearts of contented
students learning about the wonderful stories of old. Placed
in exacting positions sit crystal shakers of salt represented
by the hearts of each person who worship in this place.
On our fine table of china and crystal stand shakers filled
with seasoning. While the beauty of these crystal shakers
cannot be ignored, the function of these instruments do not
find themselves until applied to the food. It is the seasoning
inside these shakers that make the impact of the meal as they
bring life and nourishment as they are applied. In a myriad
of churches, sit lives of salt that while beautiful in form find
no worth until applied to the lives of others. Jesus said, "You
are the salt of the earth; but if salt has'lost its taste, how shall

its saltness be restored? It is no longer good for anything
except to be thrown out and trodden under foot by men"
(Matthew 5:13).
The purpose of salt is to be exposed to that which needs
seasoning. Salt sitting on the shelf does nothing to enhance
the taste of anything. Putting salt in a crystal shaker will look
elegant but serve no function without applying it to the meal.
Our lives are described as salt. We cannot enhance the lives
of others by simply being a "good example" for others to
see. Sitting in an elegant church building may serve a
purpose of fulfilling certain commands given by God but
without taking the message of hope to others to enhance their
lives in Christ serves little purpose.
Our lives must come in contact with those who need-the
gospel. This contact is a direct response of applying salt in
the lives of others. As the salt of the earth, our lives must
seek opportunities to make a direct contact with those who
need the gospel of Jesus Christ. Andrew made direct contact
with his brother Peter to bring him to Christ (John 1:40-42).
Philip found Nathanael and told him, "Come and see" (John
1:46). The early disciples "who were scattered went about
preaching the word" (Acts 8:4). They realized the principle
Jesus told His disciples at the well in John 4:35, "Do you not
say, 'There are yet four months, then comes the harvest'? I
tell you, lift up your eyes, and see how the fields are already
white for harvest."
Harvest takes place when the workers go into the fields
and make contact. People come to the gospel of Jesus Christ
because people make contact with other people. The salt of
our lives can only be of value when applied to the lives of

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor:
So many letter writers have based
their arguments on how this land is
made up of immigrants. Ernie Lu-
jan for one, suggests we should tear
down the Statue of Liberty because
the people now in question aren't
being treated the same as those who
passed through Ellis Island and other
ports of entry.
Maybe we should turn to our his-'
tory books and point out to people
like Mr. Lujan why today's Ameri-
ca is not willing to accept this new
kind of immigrant any longer. Back
in 1900 when there was a rush from
all areas of Europe to come to the
United States, people had to get off
a ship and stand in a long line in
New York and be documented. Some
would even get down on their hands
and knees and kiss the ground. They
made a pledge to uphold the laws and
support their new country in good
and bad times. They made learning
English a primary rule in their new
American households and some even
changed their names to blend in with
their new home.
They had waved good-bye to their
birth place to give their children a
new life and did everything in their
power to help their children assimi-
late into one culture.
Nothing was handed to them. No
free lunches, no welfare, no labor laws
to protect them. All they had were
the skills and craftsmanship they had
brought with them to trade for a fu-
ture of prosperity. Most of their chil-
dren came of age when World War II
broke out. My dad fought along side
men whose parents had come straight
over from Germany, Italy, France and
Japan. None of these 1st generation
Americans ever gave any thought
about what country their parents had
come from. They were Americans
fighting Hitler, Mussolini of Italy,
and the Emperor of Japan. They were
defending the United States ofAmer-
ica as one people. When we liberated
France, no one in those villages were
looking for the French-Americans,
Hispanic Americans, German Ameri-
cans or Irish Americans. The people
of France saw only Americans. And
we carried one flag that represented
one country. Not one of those immi-
grant sons would have thought about
picking up another country's flag like
the Hispanics did recently, and wav-
ing it to represent who they were. It
would have been a disgrace to their
parents who had sacrificed so much
to be here. These immigrants truly
knew what it meant to be an Ameri-
can. They stirred the melting pot into
one red, white and blue bowl.
" AMid 'here we are' ii 2006' ith a
new kind f immigrant who wants the
same rights and'privileges.Oinly.they
want to achieve it by playing by a dif-
ferent set of rules, one that includes
the entitlement card and a guarantee
of being faithful to their mother coun-
try. I'm sorry, that's not what being an
American is all about. I believe that
some words of caution are necessary.
You must resist the temptation to
make up for past sins by taking undue
risk. Advertised yields in excess of
12 percent, secured by assets such as

By Cindy Jo Ayers
This week while moving some
files around at work a February 1960
Gilchrist County Journal was un-
covered. As I thumbed through the 6
page paper several articles and a cou-
ple of ads caught my attention. The
front page featured an article about
the upcoming Suwannee River Beef
Show which was held at the end of
February in 1960 and was a two-day
event in Fannin Springs. My how the'
fair has grown since then. The article
said there were 35 (fat) steers entered.
This article only mentioned Levy and
Gilchrist FFA and 4-H being involved
with the fair. Mr. Leonard Cobb was
the County Agent and those from
Gilchrist County with steers entered
in the fair were HughMartin, Paul
Bryant, Elvin Carver, Allen Polk,
Larry Studstill, Roger Pittman, Bob
Johnson and Howell Lancaster Jr.
Mr. Eli M. Read announced his
candidacy for the office of Super-
intendent of Public Instruction for
Gilchrist County. One line in the an-
nouncement stood out when I read
it, Mr. Read wrote, "I am a Baptist,
a Southern Democrat, and a farmer."
The late Mr. Read was elected many
times after his first election and was
very respected in the community for
his entire life.
Another article reported Dog
Land, a new tourist attraction at Fan-
nin Springs was now open. The new
attraction claimed to display 120
breeds of dogs on their 21-acre site.
The attraction was started by B. E.
Shetterly and C. J. Wade.
There was also a report that Mr.
Marion Schofield caught a 12 pound
the immigrants who landed on Ellis
Island in the early 1900s deserve bet-
ter than that for all the toil, hard work
and sacrifice in raising future genera-
tions to create a land that has become
a beacon for those legally searching
for a better life. I think they would be
appalled that they are being used as
an example by 'those waving foreign,
country flags.
And for that suggestion about tak-
ing down the Statue of Liberty, it hap-
pens to mean a lot to the citizens who
are voting on the immigration bill. I
wouldn't start talking about disman-
tling the United States just yet.

The Trenton Hog Market Report
stated that 233 hogs were sold and
the buyers included Lykes Broth-
ers, Sunnyland and Copeland. The
Gainesville Livestock Market report-
ed selling 561 head of cattle.
The Bell Personals which was re-
ported by Mrs. Elberta Roberts stated
that Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Moore mo-
tored over to Gainesville shopping
and to see the doctor on Tuesday af-
The following advertisers had ads
in the 1960 paper, McCall Tractor
and Equipment Company in Tren-
ton, Colson Chevrolet Company in
Trenton, and Bell Livestock Market
in Bell. Mr. Stacy Quincey advertised
as a representative of Growers Fertil-
izer Cooperative out of Lake Alfred,
Florida. W.T. Carlton Hardware,Dry
Goods, Meats, Grocers advertised
their specials which included the fact
that they gave S&H Green Stamps.
Smith Super Market advertised Betty
Crocker Cake Mixes any 3 mix-um
up for 900. The Farm Service Store
ad featured Semi Mounted Mold-
board plows and their phone number
was listed as HO 3-2235. The Inter-
national Fertilizer Dealr Edd Lind-
sey advertised high tested certified
melon seed grown in Oklahoma. The
ad weht on to read Free Coca-Cola
to all fertilizer and seed customers.
The Chiefland Theatre also had an ad
which advertised Little Rascals Vari-
eties as a second feature.
The Trenton FFA Chapter had a
classified ad that read "Trenton FFA
Chapter wasselling Willhite Charles-
ton Grey watermelon seed."
My favorite ad was for the Fair
Store in Trenton which advertised
their February Sale including boys
Dungarees Lee Brand for $1.99. It
was probably my favorite because I
liked Mr. Bill Lazarus and still like
Mrs. Marguerite Read so very much.
According to Mrs. Read, Mr. Bill
opened the Fair Store in 1936 and
closed the store in 1983, a-time period
of some 47 years. Mrs. Read worked
in the store for some 30 years.

as much as I did. The old Gilchrist

American Legion Airs
At last Thursday's meeting at Post 91, the members there for the donation dinner had
the opportunity to meet and speak with a group of young men that had been in the area
for a week or so, helping folks throughout the community. These 25 young men from
the ALERT Academy based in Big Sandy, Texas, were here at the invitation of the
Character Council of Gilchrist County. These young men are working, using training
that they have received at the Academy that teaches many basic skills and this trip
allows them to hone those skills. They are now headed to South Florida for dive
.training and new skills for their use in other areas. The brochure the team handed out
explains their Basic Training, the Emergency Response Training and more about the
Advanced Training programs offered at the ALERT Academy. I spoke with Carl and
Geneva Comwell, who, among others, worked with.these young men and Ms. Geneva
said she had never cooked so many eggs. The Comwells were up at 4:00 or 4:30 AM,
cooking breakfast for the team, each day. These young men then went out with sack
lunches and began the jobs that had been lined up for them. I had theprivilege of
watching a team of 10 men working and I got tired just watching. Steady at it, until the
job was done, all in good humor, working together. And when the job was done, these
young men gathered together, sang a hymn, prayed and went on to the next job. All this
spirit and working as each young man felt God had asked him to, helping others and
working together for a common cause. These men exemplify the motto "Answering the
Call to Serve", and, to me, are serving God and Country, as well.
Fourth District Vice-Commander, Jim Ramos, reminded the assembled veterans at
the meeting last Thursday about the up-coming Fourth District meeting on Saturday,
March 10, at Post 58 in Dunnellon. Registration will be from 09;00 10:00 with
doughnuts, coffee and orange juice, and the meeting will begin at 10:00. There will be a
lunch served after the meeting. All Legionnaires are invited to come meet your District
Officers as well as Legionnaires from other Posts in the District. Post Commanders,
come brag about your Post and what it is doing.
American Legion Post 149 in Newberry will celebrate the American Legion's 88th
Birthday on March 6, at 7:00 PM with a covered dish dinner at the Post Home in
Newberry and has extended an invitation to the area Legionnaires to join in the
celebration. Just bring a favorite covered dish and join right in with Post 149 in wishing
a Happy Birthday to the American Legion.
Trenton's Post 91 will celebrate on March 15th and the donation dinner that night
will be corned beef and cabbage, so make plans for that night too. The dinner there will
begin at 5:30 PM, until 6:45. Come for dinner and a piece of birthday cake and stay for
the regular meeting. See where you can fit in to the American Legion and continue to
serve America and the local community.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world each day in your thoughts and
prayers. 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
you can. And remember the twenty-five young men in Alert Team 36 in your prayers as
well, as they go through their training cycles to be ready to help others when they are

"Pray always," so the Bible says,
as a command for those who believe
that the Creator of the universe does
listen and does answer the heart cries
of those who come to Him. We live in
peace and freedom here in America
because of those who serve, and de-
"pend on us here at home to consider
them, especially when we pray; as
we consider the multitudinous jobs
which have to be rendered for our
protection, as well as times of expe-
rienced loneliness for those who are
far away from the familiar and dear
objects of their affection: mainly
family. So please make it a daily
habit of taking the time, in a quiet
place, to lift up those in service to
our country, especially of those who
names are listed below, for they are
ones who are the parents, children or
grandchildren of where we all live;
right here in Gilchrist County. (If you
do not see a name of someone you
know that you would like listed, who
is from our County or who is a son or'
daughter of a resident, please contact
one of the associates of the Journal
and let them know.)

What is a Community Garden?
Community gardens are neighbor-
hood green spaces set aside for lo-
cal residents to grow their own fresh
vegetables, herbs, fruit and flow-
ers. The mission of such gardens
includes improving public nutrition
and neighborhood environments and
increasing opportunities for healthful
outdoor recreation, practical educa-
tion and positive social interaction.
Community gardens help build com-
munity self-reliance and sustainabil-
ity. Plot holders are responsible for
intensively gardening 4 x 8-foot gar-
den plots for maximum yields. They
also help keep the common areas of
the garden (pathways and sitting ar-
eas) maintained and beautiful.

Social Security Column
Goes Online For Your
by Clif Copeland,
Social Security Public Affairs
Specialist, Gainesville, Florida
With tax season well on its way,
millions of taxpayers are busy gath-
ering all the forms and documents
needed to file federal, state and local
tax returns. It is important to remem-
ber that some people who receive So-
cial Security may have to pay taxes
on a portion of their benefits. For
them, a Social Security Benefit State-
ment (Form SSA-1099) is an impor-
tant tax document.
The SSA-1099s for tax year 2006
were all automatically mailed to ben-
eficiaries by January 31, 2007. If you
or someone you know who receives
Social Security has not yet received
a Form SSA-1099 for 2006, you can
request a replacement online at www;

amount of benefits received in the
previous year and is used to deter-
mine if any benefits are subject to
tax. You may need the SSA-1099
to complete your federal income tax
return. The federal tax laws about
Social Security benefits state that: up
to 50 percent of Social Security ben-
efits may be subject to income tax for
individuals with a combined income
between $25,000 and $34,000, or for
couples with a combined income be-
tween $32,000 and $44,000; and Up
to 85 percent of Social Security ben-
efits may be subject to income tax for
individuals with a combined income
above $34,000, or for couples with
a combined income above $44,000.
(Note: "Combined income" means
adjusted gross income, plus nontax-
able interest, plus one-half of the so-
cial Security benefits.)
Less than a third of current Social
Security beneficiaries have incomes
that exceed the thresholds, requiring
them to pay taxes on a portion of their
Social Security benefits. For more
information on taxation of Social Se-
curity benefits, call the IRS' toll-free
telephone number, 1-800-829-3676

Camp Safe Haven To
Help Children Cope
With Loss In A Unique
Sadness, anger, confusion -- these
are some of the feelings people ex-
perience when dealing with grief.
However, children and adults do not
grieve in the same way, so a different
counseling approach is needed.
Haven Hospice's Healing Hearts
program will host Camp Safe Haven
on Saturday, March 31st, from 9:30
a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Camp Montgom-
ery, 88 S.E. 75th St., in Starke. The
day camp is designed for youth ages
six to 12 who have experienced the
loss of a loved one. The camp activi-
ties will provide an opportunity for
them to be with their peers and share
their experiences. "Camp Safe Haven
will help grieving children see that
they are not alone," said Nina Powell,
manager of bereavement services at
Haven Hospice. "Our camp is filled
with activities including times for
sharing, crafts and peer support."
The camp is free and open to the
public, but registration is required.
Lunch and snacks will be provided.
For more information or to register
for Camp Safe Haven, contact Nina
Powell at (352) 692-5100 or (800)
Haven Healing Hearts provides
individual, family and group coun-


selling to help anyone who is coping
with grief, regardless of how the loss
occurred. The loss may be the death
of a classmate, family member or
friend. Skilled Haven Hospice social
workers also assist in times of com-
munity crisis and tragedy, providing
debriefing services for emergency
personnel and caring for health pro-
fessionals. We support grieving fam-
ilies in a multitude of ways.
Haven Hospice is North Central
Florida's expert in end-of-life and
palliative care. Licensed in Florida
since 1980 as a not-for-profit hos-
pice, Haven Hospice has served more
than 30,000 patients and families.
Haven pioneered the development of
stand-alone care centers -- working
to provide a home-like environment
for patients whose situation makes it
impossible for them to stay at home.
The Haven mission is to serve peo-
ple and their communities affected
by life-limiting illness and loss by
providing comprehensive, compas-
sionate care, while respecting each
person's needs, beliefs, and wishes.

The Gilchrist County Health De-

Gilchrist County. Participants walked
2 miles from Trenton Elementary
School through down-town Trenton
on the Nature Coast Greenway Trail
and along State Road 26 to the east-
ern edge of Trenton. Returning to the
starting point they received healthy
snacks, water, and promotional in-
centives. Also, in observation of
the event all of the third, fourth, and
sixth grade students that participated

in Physical Education class received
a bracelet designed to remind them to
exercise and eat healthy.
Step Up Florida has been an an-
nual event since 2004 when the
Department of Health unveiled the
campaign to promote healthy activi-
ties and lifestyles to all Floridians.
The campaign has grown in size and
scope and now all 67 counties par-
ticipate in the event on an annual
basis throughout the month of Feb-

Everyone started his or her day
with a $5.00 donation for pancake,
sausage, coffee and juice breakfast.
Who could resist such a tempting
aroma? Not many, as the trailhead
quickly filled every available space
with horses and riders. A "Poker
Run" by horseback for a $10.00 do-
nation was quite a draw for prizes
second, third, and fourth place and
first prize was $50.00. The trail ride
was at your own pace on a trail you
chose, be it three miles, seven or
twelve. There was something for ev-
ery rider of different levels of skill.
It was wonderful to see mothers and
daughters, husbands and wives and
families with their children ride off
together on this special occasion.
After lunch an auction was held
to raise funds for this event. There
was beautiful handcrafted items from
some of our,own LCHC members as
well as other items that were donated
from the many businesses in several
counties in our area. LCHC wishes to
thank all of the businesses that were
so generous with their donations.
Thank you to all the generous bid-

4-Pets Sake
On Saturday, March 3rd, at 9:06
a.m., next to Bell City Hall in the
club house, there will be a hugh yard
sale. This is to benefit two non-profit
501-C3 organizations; one is Eye of
the Eagle located at Sunset Meadows
in Jonesville, and the other is 4-Pets
Eye of the Eagle is a wildlife sanc-
tuary that rehabilitates various species
that have injuries, or are hurt or sick.
Some schools have requested that the
organization do an educational pro-
gram for students to help understand
nature and reality. This has been very
successful. Unfortunately they are
overwhelmed with enormous medical
bills and also the cost ofMRI testing
for some species. They are in need of
a large chest freezer in good working
condition. This is a tax deduction and
will be treated as such.
4-Pets Sake will continue serving
all counties with our programs and
we will definitely start our medical
program this year. We can tell you
this much, we will pay a portion of
heart worm treatment, cancer or ma-
jor surgery, amputations, and broken

or testing. In addition, to be eligible
for our future medical program you
must be recommended from our par-

Finally Aucilla scored in the bot-
tom of the fourth. The Bulldogs an-
swered back with scored runs from
Tommy Callahan and Tyler Stofel. In
the bottom of the sixth Tyler Stofel
came in for relief and after a little
trouble ended Aucilla's half of the in-
ning. The Bulldogs couldn't score in
the top of the seventh and looked for
Tyler Stofel to put Aucilla away. Ty-
ler made the first batter fly out and the
second batter strike out. Then Aucilla
began to rally. They singled, walked,
and bunted for a hit.
With the pressure on and the Aucil-
la team and fans sensing a possible
victory the pressure was on Tyler
Stofel to get the final out. He suc-
ceeded when the batter hit a grounder
right back to Tyler and he tossed it to
first for the final out. This was Ty-
ler's second save of the season.
C.J. Harris went 2-4, scored a run,
and had an RBI. Tyler Stofel went

Bulldogs Baseball
by Sean Boutwell
After a winless 2006 season the
Bulldogs started 2007 with new
coaches, new players, and a few play-
ers from the previous season. Every-
body involved was ready to turn the
Bell baseball program around. Par-
ents and friends were ready to see the
program be turned around as a large
following of Bulldog fans came to
Newberry to see the Bulldogs start
their season against the panthers.
Brian Nobs was chosen to start the
game against Newberry and he came
out throwing hard. Nobs struck out
the first three batters he faced. The
Bulldogs' first inning went quickly as
they struck out twice and grounded
out. Nobs let his defense do the work
in the second, the inning ended on a
double play that fired up the Bulldog
players and fans.
With two out and Ty Smith on
first the Bulldogs' offense struck and

struck hard. Justin Fowler singled
and after a long at bat Tyler Stofel
reached' on an error. Devin Taylor
drew a walk with the bases loaded
to score Ty Smith. C.J. Harris then
.brought in two runs with a double.
Trent Shepherd reached on an error.
that allowed Devin and C.J. to score.
Brandon Ridgeway followed up with
a two run home run. Brian Nobs fol-
lowed Brandon with a home run 'of
his own.
Newberry finally got the third out
but not before the Bulldogs' scored
8 runs on 4 hits. The Bulldogs' of-
fense wouldn't score another run
the rest of the game and the Pan-
thers offense began to rally late in
the game. Newberry scored 3 in the
fourth and threatened in the seventh
and final inning. With one out and a
man on, Newberry's Ole Helgerude
hit a two- run home run bringing his
team within three. Nobs who was
still pitching and getting tired came

The next batter was hit by a pitch and
the batter after him doubled. Donnie
Michaux of Newberry singled in one
run and a throwing error allowed the
man on second to come in.
With two out and a man on, Casey

ground ball to second baseman Zack
Hunter who got it to Trent Shepherd
to end the game. Brian Nobs pitched
all seven innings, struck out eight
batters, and gave up five earned runs.
The Bulldogs got their first win 8-7

much time to celebrate.
The following night the Bulldogs
hosted St. Francis for their home
opener and the first night game ever
played in Bell. Ty Smith started the
game for the Bulldogs against Matt
Gagnon. St. Francis started the game
on offense and after a Bulldog error,
2 steals, and a fielder's choice play
St. Francis led the Bulldogs 1-0. St.
Francis got a man to second and one
to third but struck out two consecu-
tive batters to end the inning. The
first three Bulldogs got on base and
scored thanks to RBI singles from
Justin Fowler, Brandon Ridgeway,
and Zack Hunter.
In the second inning Ty ended the
inning 1-2-3 striking out 'each bat-
ter. In the bottom of the inning C.J.
Harris got on with a single then stole
two bases and an under throw from
the catcher to the third baseman al-
lowed C.J. to jog in another run. Jus-
tin Fowler singled, then stole second
base and was brought in by a single
from Ty Smith. St. Francis fought
back in the top of the third and scored
two runs closing the gap 5-3. Trent
Shepherd and Brian Nobs increased
the Bulldogs lead in the bottom of the
third with an RBI each.
St. Francis refused to quit and add-
ed three runs in the top of the fourth
and kept the Bulldogs scoreless in the
bottom half. With a 7-6 lead at the top
of the fifth inning coach Smith decid-
ed to bring Tyler Stofel in to pitch.
Stofel got St. Francis to strike out and
hit into a double play to end the in-
ning. Trent Shepherd scored thanks
to an RBI from Brian Nobs and Nobs
scored thanks to an RBI from Alan
Aderholt. Stofel shut down St. Fran-
cis' offense completely in the final
two innings and the Bulldogs added
one more insurance run in the bottom
of the sixth. The Bulldogs won 10-6.
Tyler Stofel had his first save of the
season, doubled, and scored a run.
Justin Fowler went 3-4, scored two
runs, and had an RBI. The two men
shared player of the game honors. Ty

the game with a bunt single and then
stole two bases and came home on an
error by the catcher. Brian Nobs hit

Trenton Baseball Begins
The 2007 Trenton High School
Baseball team began the season last
Tuesday in excellent fashion, de-
feating the Hawthorne Hornets by
a score of 12-3. Leading the Tigers
were senior third baseman Tres Cros-
by going 3 for 4 at the plate with 5
RBI's and junior lefty Andy Jones,
who pitched 6 2/3 innings, striking
out 10 and allowing just 3 unearned
runs. Also contributing at the plate
for the Tigers was Corey Clark, who
on his first pitch of the season stroked
a single to right center, driving in the
first two runs of the season during the

second inning.
The Tigers continue their sea-
son this week with three games, at
home against Bronson on Monday,
at Chiefland on Tuesday, and at Dixie
County on Thursday. All games are
at 7:00 p.m.

Teams Forming For
Relay For Life
A fun-filled, overnight event isbe-
ing scheduled to raise money for the
fight against cancer in Newberry/
Jonesville, Florida. The American
Cancer Society, Alachua Unit, is in
the process of recruiting teams to
participate in Relay For Life's unique
community eveht that allows i ndi id
uals from all walks of life to join ih
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.

February 28th Sales
Closing Date Near For

February 28, 2007, sales closing date
for crop insurance. This sales closing
date is applicable for the following

beans, and tobacco. The sales closing
date is the last date to purchase a new
policy, to change the type of policy,
or to change the level of coverage for
an existing policy.
The recent rise in some commod-
ity prices increases the amount of
protection available under crop in-
surance policies, but it also increases
the premium for those policies. Lo-
cal crop insurance agents are the best
source for coverage and the premium

Southern States
Upgrading Stores To
Meet Needs Of Broader
Customer Base
Several Southern States retail
stores are holding grand re-open-
ings and other special events to mark
completion of projects designed to
tailor those locations to meet the
needs of the changing customer base
they serve.
The completed projects continue
a long-range effort that began late in,
2005 to update all Southern States
stores on a scheduled basis. The first
locations completed in the process;
were at Louisburg, North Carolina-
and Richmond, Kentucky, in fiscal
2005-06. Earlier this fiscal year, the-
co-op relocated and expanded the'
Creedmoor, North Carolina store-
north of Raleigh and completed a
facelift of its West Broad Street store'
in Richmond, Virginia.
The company's capital spending
on store updates and revisions for
the four-year period that began in the
current fiscal year could approximate-
$20 million. That's over and above:
the amount the co-op will invest dur-l
ing the same period for equipment
and facilities needed to serve its core
agricultural business and meet other
strategic objectives.
S"The reality is that many of our
stores whose customers were almost
exclusively agricultural now find that,
fields and pastures have become resi-
dential subdivisions or have been split,
into smaller plots to accommodate
-those who prefer a rural lifestyle,"
says Todd Fleer, Southern States
vice president of store development.

Develop And Strengthen
Skills With Student
by Ann Picket, Lake City Commu-
nity College adjunct faculty
I have had the privilege of teach-
ing at Lake City Community College
(LCCC) since the 2004 fall semester.
I consider this a privilege because
'I truly believe that God places us
where we need to be.
I started on the path of higher
education late in life. I found that I
enjoyed the challenge far more than
I ever dreamed possible. I did not
know what I wanted to do. However,
I always felt that God would open
the appropriate door and it was my
responsibility to be prepared. Lake
'City Community College was the
open door I was looking for. I feel so
blessed to be able to do something
that I take tremendous pride in. This
community has given so much to me
that I, like many others, want to give
something back. The opportunity to
give back has come in teaching stu-
dent success classes. For those who
do not know what student success is
I will begin by answering a couple of
questions about the course itself.
What is Student Success? It is
a course designed to develop and
strengthen skills essential to suc-
cess in college. The application of
the subject material can be used long
after the student graduates from col-
lege. Topics include an introduction,
that sets the stage for entering higher
education, as well as:
1. First steps exercises in self-
discovery, making transitions, and
2. Planning offers students free-
dom to act in response to their inten-
tions; increasing the odds of reaching
their goals.
3. Memory learning memory
techniques that can boost skills for
test taking and other academic tasks.
4. Reading teaches students to

analyze and comprehend.
5. Notes offers different formats
for effective note taking.
6. Tests offers new techniques in
test taking.
7. Thinking techniques in learn-
ing to read, write, speak, and listen
more effectively.
8. Communicating ways to listen,
speak, and write more effectively and
preventing and resolving conflicts.
9. Diversity skills to succeed in a
multicultural work force.
10. Technology current and cut-
ting edge information, an important
component of student success.
11. Health strategies for main-
taining a student's "machine."
12. What's next? steps in making
choices for education and career.
Many students, as well as nonstu-
dents, do not know how to manage
their time effectively. By obtaining
this knowledge, students can learn
how to become critical readers and
thinkers, how to communicate, and
how to deal with diversity. Jour-
nal entries are found throughout the
textbook. Completing these journal
entries allows students to learn more
about themselves. Students also ex-
plore and ultimately find which mode
of learning works best for them.
There are so many elements in this
course that can be used in everyday
living. One thing about this course
that I especially like is the interaction
between student and instructor. I
firmly believe that maintaining cour-
teous interaction in the classroom
is an important factor in creating a
comfortable and successful learning
How can students benefit from this
course? By utilizing the information
and tips given in the textbook, as well
as those given by the instructor, stu-
dents can become better critical read-
ers and thinkers. I have found that as a
student realizes how much fun learn-
ing can be, the stronger their desire to
learn is. "Knowledge is power."
By providing students with the
tools to become more attentive learn-
ers, students can and do approach
learning with a different attitude and
with more self-confidence. When
fear is taken out of learning, the door
to higher education is opened wider.
I feel it is my responsibility, as an in-

structor, to help remove that fear. By
helping eliminate fear, students real-
ize that learning is still a challenge,
but approachable and achievable.
At this point in my life, I feel I am
where I need to be: The door of op-
portunity was opened for me and I
am grateful every day that I can make
a contribution to higher education at
such a reputable educational institu-
tion in our community.

New "Vet Center" Will
Serve Combat Veterans
And Their Families
Rep. Cliff Steams announced that
the Department of Veterans Affairs
is bringing its vet center program to
"These vet centers are valuable re-
sources for veterans returning from
the global war on terrorism and for
their families. Vet centers are com-
munity-based facilities that provide
counseling on mental health and
employment, and deliver services on
family issues, education, bereave-
ment, and outreach. Veterans who
served in combat are eligible for free
care at vet centers."
The VA is opening 23 vet centers
throughout the nation over the next
two years, with the one in Gainesville
planned for 2007. Small teams of
counselors, outreach specialists and
other specialists staff these centers;
many are former combat veterans.
There are currently 13 vet centers in

Ethical Saltwater
Anglers Invited To
Enter Photo C9ntest
Remember to take your camera the
next time you go saltwater fishing.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) invites
you to participate in the new Saltwa-
ter Ethical Angler Photo Contest.
All you need to do is send a pic-
ture of you or someone else prop-
erly releasing or handling a saltwater
fish, and you may be featured in an
upcoming FWC publication. To be
considered, you must handle your
fish using recommended catch-and-

release techniques. Every angler's
responsibility is to strive for 100 per-
cent survival of released fish.
An ethical angler handles his catch
with wet hands only, is careful not to
poke fingers into gills, and fully sup-
ports the body weight of the fish by
cradling it horizontally. Large fish
should not be taken aboard a boat,
because removing it from the water
can injure the fish.
Contest guidelines and a catch-
and-release brochure that describes
techniques you can use to increase
survival of released fish can be found
at MyFWC.com/marine. Submit your
ethical angling photographs to Ethi-

Dealing With Debt
Once you have decided which
debts you are able to pay and which
will have to wait, the next step is to
deal with the collectors that aren't be-
ing paid first.
How should I deal with debt col-
lectors? Don't let them pressure you
into making the wrong choices about
what to pay first. For example, ex-
plain to the debt collector, "I have to
pay my rent and utility bills first. I
have been recently laid-off; when
I get a new job I will do my best to
meet my debt."
What can a debt collector really
do? A debt collector collecting a
debt of the creditor can do little more
than demand payment. If the credi-
tor has not taken your house, car, or
other property as collateral on a loan,
then legally the creditor can only do
three things: 1. Stop doing business
with you. 2. Report your default to
a credit bureau (which will be un-
avoidable when you cannot pay most
of your debts on time). 3. Sue you in
court. Although the threat to sue you
may be very upsetting, it is not nearly
as serious as you might think. Many
creditors do not follow through on
their threats. If they do sue you, you
can represent yourself, and explain
why you cannot or should not pay.
After a period of time the creditor
may obtain a court judgment, but his
judgment still does not force you to
pay the debt. It only gives the credi-
tor the right to try to seize part of
your wages or particular property. If
you do not own very much or if you
do not earn very much, creditors will
not be.able to seize any of your prop-
erty or wages even though they have
a court judgment against you. Only
if you are hiding assets can a credit,
tor seize wages or property before a
judgment; they cannot send the con-
sumer to jail or send the consumer's
children to foster care.
How can I stop being harassed?
Federal law prohibits harassment
by collection agencies or attorneys.
For example, they may not contact
you at unreasonable hours: before
8:00 a.m. or after 9:00 p.m., unless
you give your permission, They also
may not use obscene or profane lan-
guage or call you constantly to annoy
you. Some states also have laws that
provide similar protections against
Consumers being harassed by debt
collectors should follow these eight
steps: 1. Head off harassment before
it starts. When financial setbacks
prevent you from paying all of your
bills, call the creditor and explain
pour situation Explain that xou
.it\ e to pi the landlord and utili-,
ties first, and that yoii will pay your
other bills when you can. Don't over
promise: it's better to be realistic'
about your prospects for paying. By
contacting the creditor fiist, you may
avoid having the debt turned over to
a collection agency, which will usu-
ally be less flexible than the credi-
tor in working out a payment plan.
2. Write a cease letter. If explain-

710 East Highway 26

ing the situation doesn't stop collec-.
tion efforts, the simplest way to stop
contacts is to write the collector's a
cease letter. Federal Law requires
collection agencies to stop dunning
after they receive a written request
to stop. It's a good idea to include
in the letter why you can't pay right
now and what your expectations are
for the future, though this is not nec-
essary. You should also note in the
letter any billing errors and/or abu-
sive tactics debt collectors have used
in their contacts with you. Be sure to
keep a copy of the letter. Below is a
sample letter:
(name of collection agency),
Dear Sir:
I am writing to request that you
stop communications to me 'about
my account number with
(name of creditor) as required by the
Fair Debt Collection Practices Act 15
U.S.C. S 1692c(c).
I will take care of this matter when
I can. Your cooperation will be ap-
Very truly yours,
(your name)
(your address)
3. Have a lawyer write a cease let-
ter. You don't need a lawyer to write
a cease letter, but if your letter does
not stop the harassment, a letter from
a lawyer usually will. Also, collec-
tion agencies must stop contacting
you once they know you are repre-
sented by a lawyer. 4. Work out a
payment plan. If you decide to work
out a payment plan, you should only
agree to a realistic plan, preferably
one that .significantly reduces the
debt. In making any agreement, keep
in mind your priorities; don't make
even small payments if the payments
would prevent you from paying your
mortgage or rent, food or utilities. 5.
Complain about billing errors. Col-
lection letters are sometimes in error.
If a letter contains a mistake, you
should write and request a correction
(and keep -a copy of you request). If
you dispute the debt in writing within
30 days of your receiving notice of
the right to dispute, the collection
agency must stop collection efforts
while it investigates. If the account
is an open-end account,' like a credit
card, you can dispute a charge with-
in 60 days of receiving the bill. 6.
Complain to 'a government agency.
Mail any complaint you have about
a collector's conduct to the Federal
Trade Commission, Bureau of Con-
sumer Protection, Washington, D.C.
20580, to the consumer protection di-
vision within your state attorney gen-
eral's office, and to any local office of,
consumer protection You should be
able to obtain these addresses from
your local Better Business Bureau or
office of consumer affairs. Send a
copy of the letter to the collector. 7.
File Bankruptcy. Filing bankruptcy
will instantly and effectively stop all
debt collection efforts of any kind.
Often simpler and less expensive ac-
tion will resolve debt collection ha-
rassment, but bankruptcy should not

be a casual decision, and a competent
professional should be consulted be-
fore any bankruptcy case is initiated.
8. Sue the Debt Collector. The fed-
eral Fair Debt Collection Practices
Act allows you to sue debt collectors
which violates the Act's provisions.
Statutory damages up to $1,000, ac-
tual damages, cost and attorneys fees
are available to persons who bring
successful actions. Consult an attor-
ney to discuss such litigation.
The foregoing advice is provided
by the lawyers at Three Rivers Legal
Services, Inc. A non-profit corpora-
tion which receives funds from vari-
ous local agencies and individuals, as
well as from the federal government
through Legal Services Corporation
(LSC). For specific advice on your
particular situation, we suggest that
you consult with a lawyer of your
choosing. If you cannot afford a law-
yer, you may call your local legal ser-
vices office to find out if you qualify

Florida's Lemon Law requires
automobile manufacturers to make
a reasonable number of repairs to
remedy substantial defects in a mo-
tor vehicle. If manufacturers fail to
do so, they are required to buy back
the defective vehicle and either pay a
refund to' the consumer or provide a
replacement vehicle. Consumers are
protected under the Lemon Law for
24 months after the date of delivery of
the vehicle. Anyone who experiences
problems with a new vehicle during
that period should immediately take
the vehicle to the manufacturer's au-
thorized dealer.
The Lemon Law program offers
consumers a quick and free alterna-
tive to court litigation to resolve dis-
putes. It is not necessary for consum-
ers to retain an attorney in order to
participate in the Lemon Law arbitra-
tion process and consumers who lose
an arbitration case are not required to
pay the manufacturer's attorney fees,
as is often the case in unsuccessful

Parents should supervise children un-
til they can brush well and rinse out
all toothpaste, usually around ages
6-8. Toothbrushes should be replaced

hood cavities. Parents and guardians:

pare such Statement are as follows:
1. Project is not located in a flood zone.'

3. Project calls for no involuntary relo-
4. Project calls for no forced acquisition

of land.

specting the above project has been made

uments the environmental review of the
project and more fully sets forth the rea-
sons why such Statement is not required.

file at the City Hall and is available for
public examination and copying upon
request by calling (352) 463-4000, Mr.
Jered Ottenwess, City Manager, between
the hours of 8:30 a.m. through 5:00 p.m.

tal conditions.

sents to accept the jurisdictional respon-
sibilities in relation to environmental re-

that these responsibilities have been satis-
fied. The legal effect of the certification
is that upon its approval the recipient may
use the Block Grant funds and HUD will
have satisfied its responsibilities under
the National Environmental Policy Act
of 1969. DCA will accept an objection
to its approval only if it is one (1) of the'
following basis: a) that the certification
was not in fact executed by the certifying
officer or other officer of applicant ap-

vironmental review record for the project
indicates omission of a required decision-
finding or step applicable to the project in

McCollum Urges
Caution When Ordering
"Free" Credit Reports
Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today issued a consumer alert
warning Floridians that many of the
"free" credit report offers available
online are often far from being free
of charge. Because identity theft is a
significant problem threatening Flor-
ida, many citizens seek credit reports
to monitor their personal informa-
tion. According to the Federal Trade
Commission, Florida ranked fifth in
the nation in 2006 for identity theft,
with more than 17,000 victims.
"The majority of the time, identity
theft occurs long before victims are
aware of the crime and often by then
their finances, their credit scores and
their reputations are seriously impact-
ed," said McCollum. With reports of
data thefts on the rise, I encourage all
Floridians to regularly review their
credit reports and bank and credit
card statements carefully to detect
fraudulent charges or accounts."
Numerous websites offer "free"
reports or credit scores that are tied
to offers of credit monitoring and/or
other services. These offers often re-
quire payment and the consumer is
usually unaware that he or she is pay-
ing for a service. Additionally, many
websites offer trial memberships that
require consumers to cancel within 30
days or they will be charged a month-
ly fee. Should consumers choose to
enroll in a credit monitoring service,
the Attorney General recommends
documenting telephone calls when
canceling subscriptions and fol-
low up in writing when they choose
to cancel.
Consumers are able to request a
free credit report once a year at the
internet site works in conjunction
with Equifax, Experian and Tran-
sUnion, the three national credit re-
porting companies, and is the only
official source for free annual re-
ports. Reports are also available by
phone at 1-877-322-8228. Consum-
ers have the option of ordering just
one report or one report from each
company, although authorities rec-
ommend spacing the reports out ev-
ery four months.
SConsumers with complaints about
a credit reporting service may call
the Attorney General's Fraud Hotline
at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-
They may also visit the Attorney
general's wbsite" at hp' rtp- firn-!
dalegal.com. r 'here infomirnion is
available on obtaining free credit re-
ports and combating identity theft.

Service An Intergral
Part Of College's Role
In The Community
Abraham Pallas, Lake City Com-
munity College Academy of Allied
Health Programs Executive Director.
SThe mission of Lake City Commu-
nity College (LCCC) is "to provide
superior, yet affordable programs of
quality education and to enrich the
lives of the citizens of North Central
Florida." As a higher education insti-
tution, the college is expected to be a
center of learning and culture. What
people often do not recognize is how
the college's employees and students
contribute through volunteer efforts
fo make the community grow and
SSome of the events for which peo-
ple volunteer take place on campus.
The countywide Science Fair held
recently was directed by Microbiol-
ogy Professor Cheryl Boice, with
other faculty members contributing
their time as judges. Alligator Fest,'

the Community Concert series, and
Senior Emphasis Week utilizes cam-
pus volunteers in order to make the
events a success. Also on campus,
Athletic Director and Head Baseball
Coach Tom Clark hosts an annual
baseball clinic for local coaches.
Off campus, there are even more
groups and activities in which em-
ployees participate. Staff members
serve on boards of CARC; Colum-
bia County Senior Services; YMCA;
Habitat for Humanity; March of
Dimes; Suwannee River Area Health
Education Center; CHARM, which
works to improve the health of rural
minorities; Columbia County Animal
Shelter; Columbia County Chamber
of Commerce; Columbia County Se-
nior Services; and the United Way.
Lake City Community College Foun-
dation Executive Director Mike Lee
serves on the city council, while Ad-
junct Instructor James Montgomery
has chaired such events as the Christ-
mas parade, "Friends of Alligator
Lake," the city-county unification
committee, and the Olustee Festival
A number of LCCC faculty edu-
cate outside the normal workday.
History Professor Sean McMahon is
the president of the Historical Mu-
seum of Lake City, which has begun
to offer outreach programs in local
schools. Library Technician Karen
Thomas serves on the board of the
Baker County Historical Society,
while Adjunct Instructor Judy Sears
teaches English as a Second Lan-
guage locally.
From Boy Scouts to Girl Scouts,
youth sports to the Suwannee Valley
4C's, which has a goal to develop a
communitywide network of family-
centered services for children who
have or are at risk for developing
special needs, there are college per-
sonnel who are leaders, coaches, and
fundraisers. Executive Director of
Media and Community Information
Mike McKee serves on the Safe and
Drug Free Schools Advisory Coun-
College employees also provide
service to the community through
service organizations, such as Rota-
ry, Kiwanis, and Altrusa. These clubs
hold many events throughout the
year, such as the Altrusa Gala, Rota-
ry Club Gold Ball (noon club), North
Florida Home and Patio Show (Ro-
tary morning club), and Kiwanis golf
and poker tournaments. These events
raise money for community efforts
such as-Habitat for Humanity, United
W\a. Hospice. and the Friends 'f the!
Public Library.
Outside of Lake City, business pro-
fessor Lelia Austin is a member of
the Gilchrist County Woman's Club;
along with her husband Lloyd, an
adjunct professor, she has also been
active in increasing the awareness
of the college's new Gilchrist Cen-
ter. Law Enforcement Coordinator
Doug Brown and his wife are active
in the Save the Manatees club, giving
monthly presentations to visitors and
campers at Manatee Springs State
Park in Chiefland.
Many student groups, both formal
and informal, also make valuable
contributions. Visual Arts Professor
Fran Rossi's students participate in
Color Lake City, which raises money
for scholarships within the commu-
nity. The college choir hosts the an-
nual Christmas Madrigal Dinners to
support the local Veterans Adminis-
tration hospice program. The college
band program hosts a number of free,
concerts; most notable is "A Musical
Christmas with Friends" each holi-
day season. Nursing students in the
college's Academy of Allied Health
programs participate in women's
health fairs and perform blood pres-

sure screenings, while members of
the physical therapist assistant class
provide information and free chair
massages to attendees of the Afri-
can-American Health Summit and
the Hispanic-American Health Fair.
The college's environmental club has
adopted a two-mile portion of High-
way 100 for regular cleanup, and will
be hosting a high school envirothon
this spring. The currently inactive
Students in Free Enterprise club has
an award winning five-year history
at the college completing over 175
service projects such as entrepre-
neurial training with community or-
ganizations and schools, charitable
activities, and employability training
such as "Dress for Success." Around
the winter holidays, participation in-
creases with the Student Government
Association hosting a food drive, and
individual classes providing gifts and
parties for families in need.
So, when thinking about the benefit
of having Lake City Community Col-
lege in our community, think not only
about the educational benefits. Think
also about how "rich" the community
is because of the talent and effort of
all those who are a part of it.

riod the town of Fanning Springs was
spelled Fannin Springs.

Almost all Southern mothers have
at one time or another have used this
very old and extremely good recipe.

covered with homemade chocolate
icing which was requested by our
children for their birthday cake.

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
3 cups cake flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees,
cream butter and sugar until light and
fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time,
beating well after each addition. In a
separate bowl sift together the flour,
baking power and salt. Add the dry
ingredients to the batter alternately
with the milk. Beating well after each
addition. Add the vanilla, and pour
the batter into a three greased and
floured 9-inch round pans. Bake for
25 or 30 minutes.
Cool on a wire rack and then ice
with the icing or your choice or the
following recipe.

Water; A Celebration
Of Life: Naturally To Be
Held In Fanning Spring
This Weekend
Water is the focus of an event spear-
headed by the Florida Federation of
Garden Clubs District V. The two-
day event includes a Legislative Day
on Friday, February 23rd. The pub-
lic can meet state and local officials
at the Fanning Springs State Park
from 8:30 a.m. 10:00 a.m. Later:
in the day a Legislative Luncheon for
invited guests will feature presenta-
tions about water issues facing our
state. The luncheon will be held at
the Fanning Springs City Hall.
On Saturday, February 24th, the
Fanning Springs State Park and Town
of Trenton come alive with two fes-
tivals celebrating water. Both loca-
tions will offer residents and visitors
a variety of outdoor activities that
celebrate the natural resources along
the N!ature Coast Trail connecting the

two places.
The Fanning Springs State Park
gates open at 9:00 a.m. with free
admission for the day. Educational
displays by a host of government
agencies, environmental groups,
non-profit service organizations and
business will offer information about
Florida's water. Musicians will en-
tertain at the State Park throughout
the day while environmental videos
are shown in a big tent. Vendors will
offer food and all types of gardening
items for sale. Rain barrels decorated
by Junior Gardeners from the District
will be auctioned at 1:00 p.m. Envi-
ronmental education programs will
benefit from the auction. The Fan-
ning Springs State Park is located on
US Hwy 19/98 north of Chiefland.
The Town of Trenton on State Road
26 will celebrate the rural lifestyle
with activities along the downtown
streets. Come enjoy bluegrass music,
farmers market, artists and crafters,
and native American story telling
with the painted pony at the Depot.
Leisurely stroll along the streets of
town for shopping and dining. The
whole day is geared to celebrating
the rural environment and the impor-
tance of protecting open space and
water resources.
Garden Club Director, Judy Green-
berg, says that February in Florida is
wonderful. The planning team for this
event is dedicated to helping residents
and visitors understand that everyone
can help protect Florida's water and
natural resources. Garden clubs have
a long history of community involve-
ment and this, two-day takes our in-
volvement to a newi d lvel.
