Jinklin brothers operate ultralight

helicopter business in Trenton

Carrie A. Mizell
After 20 years in the boat-building
business, brothers Gary and Dwight
Junkin decided one day to begin
building ultralght helicopters.
SWhile the average person may not
be inclined to say. "Let's go out and
buy a helicopter today!" Gary said
that his family's Trenton-based busi-
ness, Composit FX, has sold over
80 helicopters within the last three
years. Typical customers range in age
from 40-to 60-year-old males, many
of whom are commercial pilots or
former military officers.
"We've shipped several to Russia,
China and Canada," Gary said. "Af-
ter 20 years, boats had gotten boring.
This is a whole new animal for us!"
Originally from Ft. Myers, the
brothers now work alongside. their
sons, Adam and James to prepare
Mosquito XE and Ultralight XEL

helicopter kits for customers. For a
sale price of $27.500 a prospective
customer can purchase a complete
Mosquito XEL kit. All materials
are provided including laser-formed
frame parts, instruments, rotor blades
and engines. With help from an as-
sembly manual that is also included
in each kit, the estimated build time
is 200 hours or less. A $2,000 sav-
ings is offered on the purchase of the
Mosquito if customers take 10 hours
of helicopter training.
Eighty percent of the helicopters
the Junkin brothers sell are in kits,
but they will assemble the Mosquito
XE model for customers who would-
prefer pick-up ready. "We are in the
process of working on a.two-person
helicopter, but it could be a year and
a half it to o years before we have a
flying model," Gary explained.
It's been 15 years since Dwight

made a homemade turbon engine
with his friend and former employer,
George Boyanton. They completed
testing on the engine, but had nothing
to put it on until Dwight suggested a
While looking for plans, George
came across Canadian engineer John
Uptigrove and his original machine
on the cover of PRA Magazine. Three
years later, George and Dwight were
able to work out a deal with Upti-
grove; Uptigrove would make the
running gears and the Junkin broth-
ers would make the body of the he-

to construct their first helicopter, but

the Governor's Office of Policy arid
Budget and chairman of the commis-
sion, recommended the approval of
$79, 030 for the sheriff's budget for
the remaining 2006-07 budget year
through September 30, 2007.
Gilchrist County Clerk of Court
Joe Gilliam explained to the board
members and Sheriff's office repre-
sentatives that copies of the recom-
mendations were submitted to the
sheriff and county commission. The
clerk explained that of the $79, 030
being proposed that $26,530 be used

gator position for the remainder of the
2006-07 budget year and $52,500 be
provided to the Capital Outlay cate-
gory for the purchase of fwo vehicles
during the 2006-07 budget year.
Each board member and the sheriff
had reviewed the information prior to
the meeting. An agreement between
David P. Turner, Sheriff of Gilchrist
County, and the Gilchrist Commis-
sion was drafted and was made avail-
able for the two parties to appro\ e in
this meeting.
Gilchrist County Commissioner D.
Ray Harrison, Jr. made a motion to
accept the agreement involving the
settlement of the Sheriff's Budget
appeal. Commissioner Sharon Akins

Sheriff Turner thanked the board
for holding the special meeting Fri-
day afternoon. He requested the
board take a closer look at the ratio-
nale involving the additional judicial
deputies as well as the need for more
Commissioner Harrison explained
that it was his understanding that
the board told the Sheriff when the
new courtroom facility became fully
operational and the Sheriff saw ad-

ditional needs for bailiffs, then the
Chief Law Enforcement office of
Gilchrist County would come back
to the board to discuss these needs.
Both sides agreed that was the case.
The Chairman called for a vote and
the board approved the measure by a
5-0 vote.
Comnuissioner Harrison explained
that the Board of Commissioners
is working to serve the taxpayers
of Gilchrist County in the best pos-
sible way. Sheriff Turner agreed that
the Sheriff's Office will continue
to strive to provide the best law en-
forcement service to the residents in
the county.

Martin calls annual FFA plant sale

By Carrie A. Mizell
While three Bell FFAjudging teams
were in south Levy County at a land
judging contest on Friday, a handful
of students stayed behind to work at
the chapter's annual plant sale.
Held on Thursday, Friday and Sat-
urday, the fundraiser typically brings
in $1,200, according to Bill Martin,
senior FFA advisor.
While total revenue raised at this
year's plant sale .had not been de-

termined at press time, Martin said,
"This year was an exceptional year!"
Money raised at the plant sale
will go back into Bell's agriculture
program earmarked for travel schol-
arships, which will assist members
with state and national convention
travel costs.
While working the plant sale, FFA
members learned not only salesman-
ship skills but also horticulture tech-
niques, specifically different varieties

, of plants that thrive in North Central
Florida, according to Martin.
The chapter sold azaleas, roses, li-
gustrum, red tip, bottlebrush, holly,
viburnum, aztec grass, boxwood, oak
leaf, as well as much more. Tradition-
ally held in March, the annual plant
sale is set-up in conjunction with Bell
Elementary School's cypress mulch
sale to raise funds for the safety pa-
trol trip to Washington D.C. in the
summer. Martin reported that mulch
was sold out by 10:30 on Saturday
morning. Also, Bell FFA alumni pre-
sold hybrid daylilies and agapanthus
provided by Countryside Daylilies to
raise funds for scholarships.

Journal to find out how Bell FFA did
at the State Land Judging Competi-
tion which is scheduled for Friday,

Streetwise By Lauren Rudd

As we move into the second quarter
of the year, you want to be in- a
position to take advantage of bargains
created by the recent volatility on
Wall Street. That means you will
need a readily available researched
list of investment candidates.
Therefore, the time to do your
research is now and not 20 minutes
before you decide to place a buy
order. Furthermore, your primary
investment objective should always
be to achieve a reasonable return that
is in excess of what you will lose '
through taxes and inflation. Do not
ask for the impossible. To be desirous
of making a "killing" in the market is
to fall victim to greed and greed, to .my expectations by ,a wide margin.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

Last week. I had the pleasure of
being involved in a fishing trip that
included eating the fresh fish on the
banks of the Suwannee River near
Hart Springs.
SSome employees of the Gilchrist
County Road Department and friends
got together to treat one of their own,
to a day of good food and fellowship
on the beautiful Suwannee River.
Gary Tryon, known to /his friends
as "Possum", will be undergoing
some medical procedure in the near
future. Friends of this Trenton native
wanted to spend some time fishing
on the Suwannee River to catch some
fish and prepare them for lunch that
There were several boats that left
Hart Springs public ramp Friday
morning in search of fish for lunch.
Possum and Mrs. Cannon were on
the .water.first. I had the pleasure of
fishing with Mrs. Cannon's son Billy

and there were several other boats
that were family and friends that also
enjoyed the outing.
We were pleased to have the hos-
pitality ofD. Ray Harrison, Jr. as he
welcomed us to his home on the riv-
erbank to clean and prepare the fish
for lunch.
There were several bass caught by
Billy Cannon as well as Mrs. Can-
non and Possum had a good mess of
red bellies. All of the boats involved
in this fishing experience had fish to
clean when the group began to gather
at Harrison's before noon.
It had been years since I had taken
the time to get on the Suwannee River
early in the morning. I didn't realize
the peacefulness and just how nice
it really is. Other than a few dogs,
some fish jumping and neighbors liv-
ing along the banks, the peacefulness
.and the weather were perfect.

Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor
I just want to make it publicly
known what a wonderful experience
it was for me to see the work done at
my home by the young men from the
ALERT Academy.
Mitchell Gentry phoned to let me
know that the men were here in our
County to do work for those who
needed it. I told Mr. Gentry that I
could not afford to pay anyone. He
told me that their labor would be
When I saw that all my scrubs and
tree limbs had been trimmed, plus a
fallen dead tree had been cut up and
then everything had been hauled to
the back, I cried. I was so overjoyed
and thankful to have the work done.
When they finished, they asked to
pray for me and then they sung my
favorite hymn. The whole crew that
came gave me such a blessing and
my lawn looks so nice. God bless
.everyone involved in having those
young men here in our county.

Letter to the Editor
To the Editor:
In his letter dated 22 March 2007
Mr. Albert Hemdon labels me as the
"failed candidate," a disparaging
term that is now being published in
newspapers from Leesburg to Jack-
sonville. He also accuses me of being
"deceptive" and that I "engage in neg-
ative campaigning" because I have
stated that Congressman Steams has
been a,'"rubberstamp" for the Bush
Administration and the republican
leadership of the Congress. The use
of these phrases is no coincidence;
the arguments are not original.
It is a fact that since 1990 more
than 90% of Steams' votes have sup-
ported President Bush's failed poli-
cies. Two HUGE budget busters have
been his unquestioning and continued
support for the invasion and occupa-
tion of Iraq and the give-away to drug
companies popularly known as the
Medicare Prescription Drug Bill. The
cost to the taxpayer of the Iraq Quag-
mire alone is currently estimated at
more than $2.2 TRILLION (Stieg-
litz, 2006). While Steams may have
voted against.NAFTA, (Free Trade
with Mexico) he voted for CAFTA
(Free Trade with Central America);
a classic flip-flop that has hurt Flor-
ida and Gilchrist County agriculture.
Peasant farmers from these countries
who could not compete with the en-
suing flood of cheap American corn
are now illegally entering the United
States looking for jobs. Itis a fact that
for 18 years Steams has done noth-
ing to slow this invasion. Nor has he
acted to slow the flood of outsourced

manufacturing and IT .services to
China and India that has eliminated
millions of well-paid jobs for Ameri-
can workers
I am not being deceptive when I
point out these inconvenient truths.
Steams cannot claim to be a "fiscal
conservative" while quietly voting to
block enlightened, pollution preven-
tion and control laws and for budget
busting spending bills pushed by his
corporate sponsors. He cannot claim
to represent the people when his sup-
port of selective "tax reform" gives
his wealthy investors andneoconser-
vative masters a free ride at the ex-
pense of middle class workers.
Unlike Congresswoman Tillie
Fowler from Jacksonville, Steams
failed to honor his term limit pledge
made while campaigning in 1988.
Ms. Fowler honored her term limit
pledge and stepped down; Steams
recanted and stayed in office. This is
a fact.
Finally, Mr. Herndon, my partici-
pation in a few town hall meetings
controlled by Mr. Stearms and one
radio conversation does NOT substi-
tute for Steams failing:to attend more
than 30 face-to-face candidate fo-
rums or moderated debates. A REAL
candidate debate features a neutral
moderator and equal time for both
candidates to make statements and
respond to the same questions. Mr.
Steams is the moderator of his town
hall meetings. It is a fact that Steams
has never allowed me to speak for
more than a few seconds at one of his
meetings. And when I asked for more
time to explain my point of view, he

Americans like Mr. Hemdon should
be demanding robust political debate
and in-depth news coverage at all lev-

people like me who are not afraid to
challenge powerful elected officials.
More importantly Florida needs a
Congressman who is not afraid to
appear in open public forums' and
explain his votes, values and beliefs
and debate his positions on the issues,

tions are a big-time money game, Mr.
Hemdon, and you should be thankful
that citizens like me have the courage
to speak truth to power;
Mr. Steams keeps a balance of
more than $2 million in his campaign
accountsimply to discourage any-
body, Republican or Democrat, from

Hootenanny' What happens
whenever two southern girls get to-
gether. ---
Ya'll know how much I enjoy .a
good road trip. Well let me just tell
you the apple does not fall far from
the tree in our family. Accompanied
by several friends, our daughter Car-
rie traveled to Atlanta overthe week-
end for a girlfriend gathering. This
week I have turned my column over
to Carrie so she can fill you in on the
big trip. I applaud these girls for be-
ing able to pack a lot of fun into a
very short trip. I trained her well.
Cindy Jo

The spring trip itinerary read: "Be-
ing born girls, we are bred to wear
many hats...we juggle lots of differ-
ent things...work, school, husbands,
babies, church, social obligations,
etc. Being born Southern, we are
bred to do it all with a smile! I don't
know about ya'll, but I am looking
forward to hanging up several of my
hats and spending a little quality time
with some girlfriends!"
Does that not sound like a won-
derful invitation to a lively weekend
My circle of friends and I are reli-
gious readers of Southern Lady mag-
azine. We dream of wearing those
frilly Easter hats, sipping tea from
the delicate china tea cups featured in
nearly every issue and above all else
attending a 'Southern Lady Week-
end.' Sadly, we're all on a budget, but
being the industrious young women
that we are, Annie Whitehurst, Ka-
tie Jones, Marnie Elliott and myself
packed our bags, and were bound for..
Atlanta on Saturday morning.
Rather than three luxurious days
spent at the Opryland Hotel, with
swanky shopping, famous guest
speakers, gourmet meals and fabulous
gift bags, we opted for a one night
stay on the 41st floor of the Marri-
ott Marquis in downtown Atlanta.
Dinner was fried shrimp;,fried pork
chops and fried green tomatoes (Are
you seeing a trend?) at Mary Mac's
Tea Room. "Vintage shopping" at
the Starlight Flea Market turned out
to be just too tacky to talk about in
this column,-but we did take in sev-
eral worthwhile destinations while in
north Georgia.
,We made it all the way to Ashburn,
Georgia before we had to make our
first stop. The break proved to be a
nice surprise when we happened
upon the Fire Ant Festival. While

the festival featured traditional ele-
ments, like a walk/5K run, car and
bike show, poker run, entertainment
and art, as well as a beauty pageant,
it also featured a pet parade (which
was hilarious), strawberry cook-off,
drive-in movie, fireworks, a peanut
cooking contest and believe it or not
an ant calling contest. I loved it! It
reminded me of Down Home Days,
only better. It was very similar to
the Down Home Days of years past.
Back when the event was still held
in the city park and natives were all
but guaranteed to see everyone from
the tri-county area that they had ever
An experience of epic proportions
was our next stop at the Road to Tara
Museum in Jonesboro, Georgia. I've
loved Scarlett O'Hara since I was a
little girl and watched Gone With the
Wind every Saturday. My momma
will tell you that I learned my flair
for drama from 'that Scarlett' and
that she probably let me watch the
movie a little too early, but I begged.
Regardless, Clayton County, Georgia
claims to be the setting behind Mar-
garet Mitchell's fictional Tara. and
that was good enough for us. If you
like Scarlett, Rhett or even Ashley
then this museum is a must-see.
Later in the evening, we decided to
walk off our 'big fried dinner' from
Mary Mac's by strolling the five
blocks from our hotel on Peachtree
Street to The Fox Theatre where we
saw 1980's sensation Molly Ring-
wald star in 'Sweet Charity'. While
the play was just okay, The Fox The-
atre featured an incredible interior.
The walk back to the hotel just after
11 p.m. proved colorful. Let's just say
you've never seen Gilchrist County
girls run until you've seen them after
a homeless man lying in a flower bed
jumped up and scared the daylights
out of them.
It's possible that we need to get out
little more, but at this point it's nice
to be home again. Atlanta i a city rich
with a history, which makes it a very
interesting place to visit, but I cer-
tainly am happy I don't live there!

American Legion Airs
The American Legion Family in Newberrysuffered a loss last week. Doris Cook,
the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 149 President, passed away on March 21, 2007.
The members of Auxiliary Unit 149 held an Auxiliary graveside service after the regular
funeral service by her nephew, Reverend Andy Cook of the Bronson Road Baptist
Church. Doris was buried at Union Baptist Church where she attended. She was an
important part of the American Legion Family at Newberry Post 149 and will be missed
.It is that time of year that the Department of Florida begins reminding the individual
Legion Posts to send in the Consolidated Post Report. The Consolidated Report, or CPR
as it is called, is more than just an outline of what the individual Post has achieved in the
past year.
When the American Legion National Commander goes in front of Congress, these
reports show the strength of the American Legion in numbers as a collective unit and all
14,600 American Legion Posts are speaking as one with a strong voice to the elected
officials of our Nation. This yearly report, with the information it contains, is a great tool
in getting the attention of those in Washington, D.C., and all of our elected officials.
The CPR shows how the local Legion Posts influence their communities, listing their
volunteer hours, their dedication and service to that community, and hopefully, Congress
might have a more receptive "ear" when the Legion has an issue to bring before them
for resolution. This also is another reason to encourage our fellow veterans to join or
renew their membership in our American Legion. Congress and the Senate recognize
these numbers as votes and if we stand strong for an issue, those elected officials will
know. Remember to ASK your fellow veterans to join with us to continue "Serving
April is Children and Youth Month in the American Legion: The Legion has many
brochures about youth-oriented safety concerns, available for the asking. Either ask the
Post Commander'or Post Children and Youth Chairperson, or contact the Department of
Florida and ask for the particular brochures you are interested in. The Florida Child
Welfare Foundation is a separate corporation to fund efforts that deal with problems
affecting children. The only source of income is through contributions by individual
members of the Legion family. Grants are awarded to not-for-profit programs that
benefit children. These are just a few of the programs available in the American Legion.
Newberry Post 149 meets on the first Tuesday of the month at the Post home on
SR-26 just on the west side of Newberry, and Tuesday, April 3 is the night. On Monday
and Tuesday, April 2 and 3, the Post is hosting a tool show, so if you need tools, that is
the place to go on the 2nd and 3rd of April.
Remember our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers each day, and here at
home, watch over our Legion Family, veterans, widows and the families of those called
to active duty in service to our Nation, helping out however and whenever we can,

"The Living Lord's Supper," on Sun-
day, April 1, 2007, at 7:00 p.m. and
Friday, April 6, 2007, at 7:00 p.m.
This program starts off with Leon-
ardo da Vinci describing his famous
painting in 1494 entitled "The Last
Supper." During this dramatization,
it clearly brings out the humanity of
Jesus and the 12 apostles as He an-
nounces His betrayal by one of the
12. It is a soul-wrenching moment as
each apostle questions his own rela-

tionship and asks, Is It I-Is It I?
The drama has passion, pageantry
and is a fresh page in the celebration
of the Easter season.,
At the conclusion of the drama,
Communion will be served to the
congregation from the stage supper
Forest Grove Baptist Church is
located at 22575 NW 94th Ave.
Alachua, Florida. For more informa-
tion, please call (386) 462-3921.

Remember Our Troops
Gilchrist Military
"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.)

ons, Michelle Carter and numerous
Gilchrist residents who have been
kind enough to donate their change

nesses in Bell.
SWith this funding, the Band re-
cently completed repayment on a
$3,000.00 Sousaphone. Our work is
hot done. as the Band's current needs

ties and fund raisers that were carried
out this year and are being planned for
next year will benefit band students
in the current 6th and 7th grade. If
you are interested in finding out ways
in which you can help or participate
please plan to attend our last meeting
of the school year.

Flying kites
Friday, March 9, 2007, proved to
be an exciting day for the first grad-
ers at Trenton Elementary in Ms. Ro-
driguez and Mrs. Lacey's classes. It
was an absolutely perfect day for fly-
ing kites!
Prior to this activity, the students
read the story, The Kite, by Arnold
Lobel. This is a story about Frog and
Toad and their adventure flying a kite.
We learned that it is much easier to
try something new if we have a friend
are given a March with three minutes
to look over and discuss the music.
They cannot play the music during
this three minute period. After this
short period of preparation time, they
are required to then play the music.
They are then handed an Overture
and are given five minutes to pre-
pare, again without actually playing
on their instruments. After the five
minutes are up they are:asked to play
the music. Sight reading music is one
of the most difficult tasks that a band
is ever asked to do and being able to
perform sight read music is a major
accomplishment. The band director
Jamie Petersheim did a wonderful
job preparing the student musicians
'for this assessment. Well done stu-
dents and director!!!
Trenton High School/Middle
School band will be the host for this
year's All County Band Performance.
This will be held at the Trenton Au-
ditorium on April 21st. Please watch
the paper for further information on
this event.
SWe are nearing our goal in raising
funds for new uniforms. We need an
addition $8000.00 to reach this goal,
and if there are individuals or busi-
nesses that are interested in making

who is helping.
We also read about the history of
kites. Did you know that kite flying
goes back thousands of years? The
original use for kites was for the'
military and was their main form of
communication., We learned about
geometry and made miniature kites.
After watching, "Mary Poppins," we
headed outside to try our skills. The
sun was shining and the wind was
just right! In fact, one didn't need to
run very fast to have their kite flying
high in the air!

By Sean Boutwell
Last Tuesday the Bulldogs played
their fifth district game of the year.
The Bulldogs had competed in all
four previous games but couldn't get
the win. They came to Branford ready
to end a four game losing streak and
get their first district win.
Ty Smith started the game for the
Bulldogs. The Bucs gave Ty trouble
and some defensive miscues didn't
help Ty either. Branford batted around
their line up in the first inning scoring
five runs. The Bulldogs came out in
the secondhand got three of their own.
Ty Smith, Zach Hunter, and Justin
Fowler all scored from runs batted in
by Zach, Devin Taylor and C.J Har-
ris. Ty Smith held the buccaneers to

Dr. Wayne Blanton
On Tuesday, March 20th, the
Gilchrist County School Board held
a workshop on School Board Mem-
ber Effectiveness. Dr. Wayne Blan-
ton, Executive Director of the Florida
School. Boards Association, was the
guest speaker.
Dr. Blanton encouraged the Board
to develop goals and strategies for
their school district that is supported
by the Board's budget. He prompt-
ed the Board to recognize the good
things about their school system, and
to thank school and district employ-

only one run over the next four in-
The Bulldogs kept fighting and
trailed 6-5 through five. innings. In
the bottom of the sixth Ty struggled
to find the zone and started by hit-
ting a batter. Ty then walked the sec-
ond batter, got the next to pop out to
the catcher and hit the fourth batter.
Coach Smith pulled Ty out and put
Zach Hunter in with the task of get-
ting two outs with the bases loaded.
The first batter smacked a single to
.right center field then another run
came in from an RBI single. Zach fi-
nally got the two outs but Branford
had done the damage they needed.
In the top of the seventh both Trent
Shepherd and Ty Smith grounded
out. Justin Fowler reached on an er-
ror by the third baseman and Bran-
don Ridgeway brought him in with
an RBI double that missed being a
home by five feet. Zach Hunter then
popped up to end the ball game with
Branford winning 9-6.
Thursday the Bulldogs: unleashed
their anger at their losing streak on a
youm i-St. Francis Catholic team. The
Bulldogs' did struggle on offense the
first two innings despite scoring two

ees for their contributions. He cau-
tioned, however, that all districts can
continue to improve and change, as
Dr. Blanton asked the Board to
take advantage of every opportunity
to learn, formally and informally; to
keep their sense of humor, and to be
team players by working with their
fellow board members and admin-
istrative staff. The workshop was
a very informative and fun event as
Dr. Blanton kept the Board laughing
with his colorful and historical stories
about various Florida school boards.

runs. In the second inning the Bull-
dogs first three batters loaded th6
bases but left the inning without a
single run. A pick off at second base
and a double play were the reason St.
Francis kept the game close. Zach
started for the Bulldogs. St. Francis
put four men on base in the first two
innings but only scored one.
The Bulldogs offense caught fire
the next three innings as they scored
a total twelve runs. C.J reached on
an error in the third, Tyler Stofel fol-
lowed with a single. Brandon Ridge-
way came up to bat and hit a rocket
over the left field fence. The three-
run homer ignited the Bulldogs for
the following 9 runs.
Some notable stats from the three-
inning streak were: C.J Harris scor-
ing in all three innings reaching once
with a triple; Justin Fowler hit a two
RBI single; and Ty Smith scored
twice with a RBI single as well. On
defense Zach and his defense contin-
ued to:be flawless and held St. Francis
to just one more run. The-game ended
after five innings' with the Bulldogs
winning 14-2 and forcing their first
ten-run rule in a few seasons.

Dairy Goat Show
This was the first year that the
Dairy Goat show at the Suwannee
River Youth Fair had fun activities
for the exhibitors and audience to en-
joy and even laugh about. This was
not a baaaaaaaaaaaaaaad experience

as they made ready for the costume
contest that began on Sunday after-
The small- arena was packed with
,people cheerifi on their children and
-friends as-tie parade of cutely dressed

exhibitors and dairy goats entered the
ring. Thq judges had their work cut
out for them and even though they
were two great judges of dairy ani-
mals, it wis too difficult for them to
make the'decision alone. They asked
that the crowd help them to make the
choices by clapping the loudest for
first, then second and third places. All
winners ofthis contest each received
a 50 pound bag of feed. The winners

third place went to Krystina Thomp-
son of Country Grown 4-H.
The milking contest was some-
thing to be seen as well! Competitors
had one minute to hand milk their
own dairy goat and then the milk was
The bravest of little people was
our first competitor Bailey Roux of
Santa Fe 4-H club, who had a wild
time trying to get his doe to cooper-
ate on the milk stand. He managed to
get .2 of a pound of milk while trying
to deal with his doe. He deserves to
get a very HONORABLE mention
for a good try! Our other competitors
seemed to be old pros at milking and
weighed in at a very close weight.
Krystina Thompson of Country
Grown 4-H was declared the winner
with a whopping 3.0 pounds in one

it, she came in short with 2.8 pounds,

Job milking your does exhibitors!!
Winners of this contest each received
a 50-pound bag of feed.
Our Poster contest yielded some
very educational posters about Dairy
Goats. Everything from how to trim
hooves to the nutritional needs of
dairy goats was presented. What a
great job our kids did. All entries won
a blue ribbon for a great job done!
Our Mock Dairy Goat show
brought out 20 future exhibitors. The
children ranged from age 5 up to
age 14 that participated in our show.
From where I was standing, I saw a
lot of raw talent and hopefully future
exhibitors. Next year's show prom-
ises to be even bigger and better!
Congratulations to all of those who
participated in our Mock Show! You
were all winners!
On Monday, our dairy goat show
started out with Senior Showman-
ship. The judges asked the exhibi-
tors many questions about their goats
and put them through many different
maneuvers to weed out the top three
exhibitors. Later the judges told me
that this year's group of children had
worked very hard refining their skills
and it showed. It was much harder to
pick three top winners this year.
However, after many questions and
several fancy maneuvers, three top
winners were decided. The winners
were, first place Donna Owens of
Wilcox 4-H, second place Krystina
Thompson of Country Grown 4-H
and third place Tray Roux of Santa
Fe 4-H. Congratulations to our win-
ners. The first place winner received
a beautiful showmanship jacket and
all winners received a beautiful,belt
buckle... .. n-, .- ,-i
The Intermediate group was next
to strut their stuff and show their
knowledge of goats. One of our
judges made the comment that our
senior showmen better take notice,
this group of intermediate showmen
are sharp and they will be moving up
to the senior group next year!
Despite the many questions asked
by both judges in order to stump and
separate the top kids, and the maneu-
vers they put this group through, they
had to do more than the senior group
did in order to narrow it down to find
the top three winners. One of the
judges commented to me how sharp
this group was especially, with basic
goat knowledge. When the choices
iere finally made, the top three win-
ners were announced. The winners in
this group were first place Samantha
Owens of Wilcox 4-H, second place
Nathan Thisse Osceola 4-H and third
place Desiree Holstein of Bell Jr.,
FFA. The first place winner received
a beautiful showmanship jacket and
all winners received a beautiful belt
The last group to do showman-
ship was our Primary exhibitors.
Don't let the size of these kids fool
you. This was also one sharp group
of dairy goat exhibitors. Wining first
place was Spencer Hewitt of Spring
Ridge 4-H, second place was Bailey
Roux of Santa Fe 4-H and third place
was Kailey Roux also of Santa Fe
4-H. The first place winner received
a beautiful showmanship jacket and
all winners received a beautiful belt
Our dairy goat show was divided
into a Jr. Doe show (never fresh-
ened) and a Sr. Milker Doe show.
Our judges Elise Anderson of Palatka
and Jan Noble of \\'~i lll0on really had
their jobs cut out for them. The qual-
ity of dairy goats in both shows was
some of the finest in our area for this
year. The judges were pleased by the
show shape condition of these beau-
tiful dairy animals. The exhibitors
showing their junior does, showed
the senior doe herdsmen what their

Grand Champion was exhibited
by Krystina Thompson of Country
Grown 4-H and the Reserve Cham-
pion was Nathaq Thisse of Osceola
Our Senior Milking Doe show had
some of the most elegant dairy goats
to grace the show ring in a long time.
These senior milkers had all the dairy
characteristics, mammary capacity,
and general appearance to win in any
large show in the state of Florida. Our
competitors have some really beauti-
ful dairy goats. Grand Champion was
won by Donna Owens .of Wilcox 4-H
and Reserve Champion by Samantha
Owens, also of Wilcox 4-H.
All exhibitors that entered a dairy
goat into the Suwannee River Youth
Fair received a beautiful jacket, two
bags of feed and will receive premi-
ums for their placings as well. Special
thanks to all our sponsors that made
this a great show for our Tri County
Youth. Without your financial sup-
port, this would not have been pos-
sible. I also want to thank our parelits
for sticking with and helping your
child during all the activities that
went on with the dairy goat show. A
special thank you to Lu Young our
show secretary, Marie Hatch our ring
steward that kept our kids and their
does in the right place and Mr. Jackie
Sheffield that helped keep our barn'
safe and running smoothly. Thank
you to Amber Jordan for holding our
exhibitors showmanship clinic and
being our milk scale person during
our milking contest. What an awe-
some group to work with. We hope
to see more exhibitors at our next

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
March 22nd, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Our day started with
16 quilters who came over from the
Villages. Some had never been our
way and it was great to meet and
greet each one.

Eleanora Orlando was invited to
come and tell of her trip to Romania
where she took quilt supplies to teach
everyone to qtiilt. They have no ma-
chines, no fabric or thread. She told
of her time there and all wanted her
to stay. She and her husband John
are missionaries and what a trip to
always remember.

This beautiful quilt was made by Betty Dillon. It is all hand appliqued
and hand quilted. It is called "Roads that lead to the Sea." She also
makes the best lemon pie you ever ate.

Our watermelon quilt is done and
we will be taking donations from
now until the festival, when we will
give it away at the queen contest.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and did we have a. great time
planting tomatoes, beans, squash,
pepper, cucumbers, peanuts, and
garlic. Some of the boys have never
planted but they learned in a hurry
and we hope one day they will have
a garden as they know how to plant.
They learned how to fertilize and wa-

ter and in time they will harvest their
work. Thanks Lancaster.
Our dinner was chicken and dump-
lings, noodles, macaroni and cheese,
slaw, cauliflower, greens, okra and
tomatoes, Betty's lemon pie, Marie's
chocolate dessert, homemade cook-
ies, and so much, we had to put in ex-
tra tables. The ladies really enjoyed
their lunch.
We had 20 members and 18 guests
present. '

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 Januaiy 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
SPersonal Property owner. 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 1 of the taxing
year, follow this procedure:
1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business arid
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility to file an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed value that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter with us. If
you have evidence that the appraised value is more than the
actual fair market value of your property, we will welcome the
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.
Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year -
Who is responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is
insufficient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on
January 1 would be responsible for.the difference. Most title
companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or
closing agent to avoid problems in this area.

File the original return with this office (with name and
account number preprinted), as soon as possible before
April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return.
Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any
*equipment that may have been "Physically Removed".

List those items in the appropriate space on your return.
If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule
that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your
complete return.
Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as
last year".
It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of
assets since depreciation on each item may vary.
Please include your estimate of fair market value and
the original cost of the item on your return. They are
important considerations in determining an accurate
S* 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.

Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one
location, the assets of each'should be listed separately on each return. .
Q. .What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and
written off the books?
A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or
not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets. that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed
for informational purposes.
Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report?
A. No, there is no minimum value..A tangible tax return must
be filed on all assets by April 1.
Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to
file a tangible personal property tax return?
A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature,
you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should
be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal
property included in the rental unit.
Q. Are there deadlines and penalties?
A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After
April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per
month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is
required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO

were pretty much tired of the old
ice on the windshield trick and it
was getting just a bit tiresome tot-
ing flower pots in and out. Yea, I'd
say we were more than ready to put
away our winter wear and haul out
shorts and bathing suits, remember-
ing why we said on January 1st that
losing weight was our number one
New Year's resolution for 2007. As
Dr. Phil would say...how's that been
working for you?
For me, it hasn't been. Way before
Christmas, my baby, Michael, who
by the way is 36, announced that he
and his lovely bride-to-be had at last
set a date, May 6th. I said to myself
and anyone interested, "great, I can
lose alot of weight by then..." ha.
There was Thanksgiving with all the
trimming. Next, there was Christmas
and visions of sugar plums, cook-
ies, pies, cakes, and an assortment of
other goodies, which were not only
dancing wildly through my head but
marching straight into my mouth and
making themselves right at home
in the form of fat. Valentine's Day
didn't help either, but the beginning
of Lent I said enough. So here's hop-
ing by the time I have to waddle
down the aisle I won't have to have
one of those vehicles with flashing
lights and a sign announcing "wide
load" to go in front of me.
But, when 15 Joyful Hearts met
to quilt, craft, and chat no one was
thinking of how they'd look in shorts,

Why do we not have fair and com-
petitive federal elections every two
years as the Founding Fathers intend-
ed? MONEY and POWER.
As an 18-year incumbent Mr. Stea-
ms should be comfortable donating
excess campaign funds ($2+ million)
to charities in his District. Iristead he
avoids debates and uses his money
and franking privileges to send more
direct mail to voters than any other
member of Congress. Instead of
spreading gossip about me, after the
election Mr. Steams should donate
all of his corporate campaign money
($2+ million) to local fund-raising
events, such as the Wild Beast Feast
that benefits underfunded school pro-
grams in Gilchrist County.

came in at 50 percent and 31 percent

generated $269 million of free cash
flow in 2006, resulting in a balance

capital (ROIC) was 69 percent during
fiscal 2006.
There are three key factors with
regard to Garmin's financial that
should catch your eye. The first is
that Garmin has virtually no debt.
Secondly, it is al]a\,s nice to see
management have a substantial
stake in the business and Min Kao,
Garmin's CEO, owns about 23
percent of the company. Finally, the
company considers, free cash flow
to be an important enough metric

Happy Birthday and many, many more to our March birthday gals,
Alice Binns and Ruth Wilkerson

they were just glad to be able to get
dressed in less than five layers.
Barbara Strom set up her purse
factory and under her watchful eye
Diana Lynn and Jane Boyd finished
theirs. I'm the last to hold out and
should be able to finish mine next
Cathy Strom, Ann Mangone. and
Elaine Nemeth all gathered round
the quilt frame and with fingers fly-
ing, quilted up a storm. A friend of
Elaine's, Eleanor Orlando from the
A-1 Quilts store, came to visit. You
know we're always glad to meet and
greet new faces.
Mary Lou Ryder and Alice Binns
were busy with their Swedish weav-
ing and I have no idea where the'rest
of that group was on such a great day.
Oh yes, Jackie Moore, who is always
here, couldn't make it because her
husband, Lawrence. has been quite
ill. Let's remember both of them in
our prayers. Ruth Wilkerson, Lera
Townsend, andl Myrle Gilke\ all
settled down to crochet while Mar-
vine Deer, Bonnie Edw yards and Ann
Taylor just passed the time with this
and that.
Elaine, of course, had anotherquilt
she'd finished, you'll get to see it lat-
er on when the film on the new role
is used up. How does she find the
time? Remember the story about the
shoemaker and the elves? If I didn't
know better, I'd swear little elves
sneak into her house at night and
.quilt until daylight.
You may or may not recall.that on
our next regular meeting, Wednesday
April 4th, we were scheduled to have
a tea. Well, the hostesses Mary Lou,
Alice, Marvine; and myself (Pat Luka
was not there) decided we needed
more time to prepare so the tea will

be Wednesday, May 2nd;
You do not have to bring anything
unless you've been asked to do so.
Dress up like you did when you were
a little girl and were having a tea
party with friends or your dolls...or
Alice is so relieved that we have
more time to plan, discuss and get
this Tea down pat. It should be quite
fussy and fancy but more important-
ly...FUN. If you have any questions
call one of the hostesses or come to
the next meeting.
Next Sunday will be Palm Sunday
and the following Sunday will be
Easter. I know nearly everywhere
you go you see colorful baskets,
plastic grass, eggs. candy, stuffed
animals and the works. Excep[ for
a few chocolate candy crosses there
is little to tell you v hat Easter is all
about. Even Christmas, while very
commercial. seems to get across that
Jesus is the reason for the season but
Easter is quite a different story.
NMl hope, for you and your fami-
lies, is that as you are in the stores
surrounded by the bright colors of
Spring. you will remember that plain
rugged cross and the dark clouds that
gathered there.
As you are dying eggs and making
up baskets, I hope you will recall and
retell the story of the crucifixion of
Jesus, the days and events leading up
to it and His resurrection and the days
following. He paid the price for us,
that we could not afford to pay.
As the events of this world move
swiftly according to God's plan, may
His love fill your heart and bring
peace and joy to your life. 'Til next
