Kids, books and stick horse whoadeo

By Carrie A. Mizell
Collecting the world's largest col-
lection of stick horses was just hors-
ing around at first for Dan Cavanah,
Bell town manager.
In 1990 Cavanah acquired his first
stick horse,'"Big Grey," a gag gift
from a friend in Seattle who owns a
cutting horse ranch.
"I was joking with him, saying one
day I'd have a bigger ranch than his,"
Cavanah said. "He sent me this stick
horse and told me it would help get
my ranch started!"
An Independence, Missouri native,
Cavanah had told his friend that when
he retired he would gather the largest
herd of fine horses in all of Florida.
"That's how it all began," Cavanah
In 1995 Cavanah moved to Bell
where he joined a horse riding group,,
even though he didn't have a horse.
As the only one alliout a horse, Ca-
vanah took Big Grey, his stick horse,
"All the kids wanted to play with
it, and the adults had their own stick
horse stories to tell," Cavanah said.
"I knew I was on to something, so I
began looking for stick horses in all
sizes and shapes. I found stick horses
made of wood, leather, vinyl, metal,
fabric injection molded plastic and
even paper laminate."
He bought some and others he
received as gifts. There is a Davy
Crockett stick horse, an orange one
autographed by country singer Tam-
my Wynette and 19509 model that is
battery operated and makes a whin-
nying sound. Cavanah's curios-
ity grew along with his collection,
so he inquired with Guinness World
Records if there was a record for col-
lecting stick horses and learned there

City of Trenton Beautification awards were presented to, left to right, Mary Kearney, Elwanda Gore repre-
senting Capital City Bank in Trenton, Shirley Hauselman, Maxine Parrish, Eudell Parrish and Commis-
sioner Arlene Wilks presented the awards.

By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission hon-
ored four residential homeowners and
a commercial business with Beauti-
fication Awards at the beginning of
their July 2 meeting. City Commis-
sioner Arlene Wilks recognized each
of the four quadrant homeowners and
a commercial banking institute for
having beautiful landscaped lawns.
Capital City Bank was presented
with the commercial business beau-
tification award for its attractive
landscaped lawn which surrounds the
business at the intersection of Wade
Street and Main Street in downtown
Trenton. Elwanda Gore, vice presi-
dent of Capital City Bank, accepted

a plague and a beautiful plant for the
Capital City Bank Group.
Mrs. Mary Kearney, who resides at
728 NW Third Avenue received the
beautification award for .the north-
west quadrant of Trenton. Mrs. Kear-
ney accepted the plaque and the plant,
and thanked the City for this honor.
Mrs. Shirley Hauselman lives at a
lovely residence located at 114 NE
First Avenue. She was again honored
this year for her beautifully land-
scaped yard. Mrs. Hauselman ac-
cepted the plaque and a plant before
thanking City Commissioner Wilks
for the award.
Mrs. Maxine Parrish and Mr.
Eudell Parrish were honored for their

yard's decorative landscaping. Their
home is located in the southeast sec-
tor of Trenton. The Parrishs reside
at 232 Southeast Fifth Avenue. Mrs.
Parrish's yard is a true testimony to
her enjoyment of working outdoors.
Mr. and Mrs. Lester Cribbs were
recognized for their ':C.iutait', land-
scaped yard at 408 Southwest Second
These Trenton residents and many
others make this community a beau-
tiful place to live and work as they
strive to keep their lawns and prop-
erties in immaculate condition. Con-
gratulations to each of the winners.

Bell Library stands as a dream realized for

several dedicated volunteers

Bell Town Manager Dan Cavanah is shown with his collection of stick

was ,no such category. Guinness in-
vited him to submit and in Novem-
ber 2002 awarded Cavanah the world
record certificate for having 381 stick
horse pieces. Today the collection
has grown to over 500 pieces.
When the collection outgrew his
home, and at the urging of his wife,
Cavanah sought a permanent home
for the entire collection where it
could be properly displayed.
"After three hurricane, threats in
our county, I began to think about do-
ing something, with the collection. I
didn't want to lose it," Cavanah said.
In 2005, Dolly Parton's Dixie Stam-
pede acquired the entire collection of
stick horses to showcase at its dinner
show facilities in Pigeon Forge, Ten-
nessee and Branson, Missouri. Cava-

Country music sensation Dolly
Parton provided Dan Cavannah's
stick horse collection with a home
at Dixie Stampede. .

nah was named the honorary "Cura-
tor" of the collection and serves as its
The collection is now displayed
throughout the Dixie Stampede. Visi-
tors can even make their own stick
horse at the Barnyard Critters Gift
To share his childlike joy of stick
horses, Cavanah organized and pro-
motes "Whoadeos," stick horse rodeo
events where children of all ages ride
'their favorite mounts and compete,
just for fun, in classes styled after
real rodeos. It's all based on imagi-
nation. Laughter abounds from par-
ticipants and spectators as Cavanah
hosts "Whoadeo" events which serve
as fundraisers for children's charities.
In 2006, Dixie Stampede in Branson
held its first "Whoadeo" benefit for
Parton's Imagination Library and
started a tradition. Families enrolled
in the program were invited to the
free Whoadeo,. which was held on
Saturday, June 2, 2007. Proceeds
from the evening performance were
donated to Dolly's Imagination Li-
brary, which continues to fund the
growth and supply of free books to
children throughout the country.
Cavanah traveled the country on a
mid-west media tour where he was
a guest on ABC, NBC, CBS and
FOX TV affiliate stations promot-
ing Dolly Parton's Imagination Li-
brary and the 2nd Annual Whoadeo
at the Dixie Stampede. While on the
media tour, Cavanah attended the
"Imagination Library Homecomin'
07" in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee on
June 13-15, 2007, where sponsoring

Children's books were flying off
the shelves of the Bell Library last
week as 20 children from Kathy's All
Things Daycare and Learning Center
Stopped by to check out books and
work in flower beds.
At the center, of the excitement
was Bell Town Council President Iris
Roberts. A longtime reading teacher,
Roberts is just one of 18 library vol-
unteers. The volunteers share a love
of reading and a dedication to seeing
that children in north Gilchrist Coun-
ty have access to learning tools and
reading material all year long in Bell.
Led by Shirley Frey, president of the
Friends of the Library of Gilchrist
County Inc., and with the support of
members of the Bell Town Council,
Bell Junior Library opened on Nov.
2, 1996 in a facility that formerly
housed Bell Town Hall.
In its infancy, the library had no fi-
nancial help and depended solely on
financial donations and donations of
both new and used books.
"We received too many donations
to name, but you [the donors] are re-
membered," Roberts said. "Also, we
were able to have computers, copy'
machines, furniture and filing cabi-

A donation of 25 books stands out
in Roberts' memory. Then Town of
Bell attorney, David Glant, a cur-
rent circuit court judge, presented a
collection of books to the library in
memory of his son, Matt.
Early programs at the library in-
cluded: Read Through December

of the Bell Library last week. The children are enrolled at Kathy's All

of Bell High School Art Show; The
Bookworm Reading Contests; Pre-
School Story Time, Activities and

History of Bell; and the Other Chan-
nel Books..
In its first year of operation, Bell
Library had 161 adults and 146 chil-
dren register to check out books.
On June 30, 2001 the volunteers
dream for a larger library space came
to fruition after a new Bell Post Of-
fice was built along US 129, leaving
the older building constructed by
Ottis Akins available. It wasn't long
before the Bell Town Council gave
the Bell Library use of the old post
office facility. Judge Ed Philman of-
ficially dedicated the building as the
Bell Library during a grand opening
celebration held on June 30.
The library continues to grow as the
population of the county grows each
year. The library is able to operate
because of area volunteers, revenue
from its annual book sale and dona-
tions. Bell Library now boasts seper-
ate children, intermediate and adult
sections of the library. Roberts esti-
mates that 50 people come through
the library doors each week to check
out books or use the computers.

organizes Apopka's annual Fourth of
July event. He worked with Apopka's
Festival of Families each autumn and

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

Meet Your Neighbor

The Fourth of July, Independence
1Day was fun and exciting for our
family as we spent a couple of days
at Suwannee fishing and relaxing.
,On Wednesday our family enjoyed
the traditional seafood boil that we
prepare each year. We enjoy Cindy
Jo's family and friends that come to
thle camp and spent the day with us.
The weather on Wednesday was
vpry different for this time of year.
The wind blew from 10 to 15 knots
all day out of the northeast, which re-
ally kept the bugs from being a prob-
lem. This time of year the weather is
usually hot and muggy as well as the
Sand Gnats can become a real prob-
,There were a lot of boats going out
of the Suwannee River headed to the
sdallop grasses beyond the Horse-
shoe Beach Channel. I talked to Gary
Jones, GFC officer on Friday and he
commented the scallops are showing
up around the Pepperfish Keys and
Rocky Creek area but at this time
they are reported to be in deeper wa-
Our family has not yet decided
when we all want to get together to
go scalloping. I think we will wait a
little later in hopes the tasty shellfish
will come closer into the shallow wa-
My fishing trip offshore was a
real test of just what did-you want to
catch. The Bonita were striking bait-

fish from Hedemon Reef west. The
water temperature at Hedemon when
I passed by there was around 850. By
the middle of the day the temperature
at this shallow grassy flat could rise
to the high 80s, which makes catch-
ing fish very difficult.
As we passed by the Spotty Bot-
tom area, with the clarity of the wa-
ter, seeing the grassy bottom in the 12
to 18 foot depths was very inviting.
We decided to go further offshore
in hopes of finding a grouper bite.
Catching grouper this time of year,
unless you are in 60 feet or deeper
with any consistency is a true test to
any angler's skill. I managed to catch
enough for Cindy Jo and my dinner,
but it was tough to find a keeper size
I think from now until September,
the most exciting bite is fishing the
grassy shallows early and late in the
day. There is always the thrill of tak-
ing to the water after dark in hopes of
catching the schooling mullet.
Having the opportunity to grow up
and enjoy these fresh and saltwater
estuaries has been a magnificent ex-
perience. I have truly enjoyed fishing
the Big Bend coastal areas.
If you have the opportunity to get
on the water during the summer or on
a weekend, take someone with you
and you both will enjoy the experi-
ence for a lifetime.

By Lauren Rudd

,A recent article about the late Yale
economist Irving Fisher brought
home an often touted, and just as of-
ten ignored, premise for those who in-
vest on Wall Street. In early October
of 1929, Fisher confidently predicted

that stock prices, "...had reached
what looked like a permanently high
plateau." Not long after, Wall Street
experienced its worst crash in history
and the start of the great depression.
Fisher's mistake, which is so of-
ten repeated by others, is that he
was blindsided by his own biases.
Although Fisher's investment de-
mise resulted from an overly positive:
outlook, the reverse can occur just as,
frequently and be jusfas deadly to the
overall performance of your portfo-
lio. I mention this because almost ev-
ery company at one time or another
finds itself subject to the capricious-
ness of Wall Street's analysts and the
resultant increase in share price vola-

situations? Stop orders, which enable
you to sell out of a position should

The Futility Of The Fruit
(Kent Heaton)

The fruit she thought would make her as wise as God
became a bitter disappointment of guilt, shame and fear.
The attraction of the texture and delight it brought to her
eyes turned to ugliness. In a moment of reckless pleasure,
the feeling of promised freedom turned to a dark
imprisonment of despair. Adam and Eve heard "the
sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the
cool of the day, and the man and his wife hid themselves
from the presence of the LORD God among the trees of
the garden" (Genesis 3:8). Where was the promise of
freedom now? How had the act of taking the forbidden
fruit given them greater wisdom? What value was there
in having more pleasure for a moment? Sin has the power
to turn a garden of holiness into a garbage pit of guilt.
The nephew of Abraham saw the "Jordan valley was
well watered everywhere like the garden of the Lord,
like the land of Egypt" and Lot "dwelled in the cities of
the plain, and pitched his tent toward Sodom" (Genesis
13:10). The appeal was for more freedom, greater
wisdom and the enjoyment of man's pleasure. Lot turned
his eyes and his heart toward the fruit of an earlier garden
to seek out the same false promises and found the same
futility. It did not make him wiser nor did the pleasures
give him much joy and the glitter of sin was a veneer
hiding the dark realities of hell. "Then the LORD rained
upon Sodom and upon Gomorrah brimstone and fire
from the LORD out of heaven; and he overthrew those
cities, and all the plain, and all the inhabitants of the
cities, and that which grew upon the ground" (Genesis
19:24-25). The Lord killed Lot's wife for her
disobedience, his two daughters committed incest with
him .bearing children by their father and Lot's name is
inscribed in the chronicles of shame.
It was a quiet day. The war was dragging on and the
king was resting in his house. "It happened, late one
afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was
walking upon the roof of the king's house, that he saw

there be a drop in the share price, are
a possible solution. Of course then
you need to try to determine when
to get back in, with a subsequent de-
termination of when to get back out
again, and so on. If you are lucky, a
market strategy of that nature will en-
able you to break even...at best.
Let me offer a more profitable
strategy. If a company has histori-
cally solid financial, a solid business
plan going forward, astute manage-
ment and you understand the com-
pany's business philosophy, then buy
the shares and hold them with the
understanding that they will fluctuate
in price.
' An excellent example is Bed Bath
& Beyond. When I last talked about
the company a year ago the shares
were trading at $32, as compared to a
recent closing price of $36, resulting
in a one-year gain of 13 percent.
Despite declining home sales and
rising gasoline prices, Bed Bath &
Beyond recently reported fiscal first
quarter earnings of 38 cents per share,
as compared to 35 cents a year ago,
representing a 9 percent increase.
The home furnishings chain also
reported a 1.6 percent increase in
same-store sales with an 11.3 percent
increase in overall net revenues. The
revenue growth was derived primar-
ily from stores open for less than a
year, a compelling argument for fu-
ture growth.
Management is targeting in excess
of thirteen hundred domestic Bed
Bath & Beyond stores by the end
of the current fiscal year, utilizing a
capital spending budget of $375 mil-
lion. HoweVer, most of the new store
expansion will take place during the
third and fourth quarters of the com-
pany's fiscal year.
The company's viewpoint is that
others in its industry are either un-
able or unwilling to invest in their
infrastructure and are therefore cur-

from the roof a woman bathing; and the woman was
very beautiful" (2 Samuel 11:2). The attraction of the
delight, the pleasure anticipated the freedom to
experience; all came to pass when messengers were sent
and the woman brought to his chamber. The Garden of
Eden again fails to live up to its hope.
No one could have imagined the power, of the new
message of salvation brought through the work of the
early church. A new spirit of benevolence and charity
thrived within the disciples. There were great things
being done and "there was not a needy person among
them, for as many 'as (were possessors of lands .or
houses sold them, and brought the proceeds of what
was sold and laid it at the apostles' feet; and
distribution was made to each as any had need" (Acts
4:34-35). Ananias, with Sapphira his wife-wanted to be a
part of this new beginning. In the midst of the
benevolent spirit of the early disciples entered the
forbidden fruit of temptation. When the land was sold,
Ananias and his wife saw how money could make them
wise, give them pleasure and allow them freedom never
enjoyed before. Because of their greediness in longing
after the forbidden fruit of sin, they were struck dead by
Jehovah God.
The futility of the fruit is found in the falling juice
from the lips of Adam and Eve. What had they gained:in
a moment's pleasure? They ate the fruit and it was gone
but their sin remained. What had Lot gained or David
found in his pleasure or the early disciples deposited in
the carnal hearts of greed? Nothing. Simply put -
nothing. And so sin engulfs our lives today with the
same covering of deceit and lies. There is no value in sin
only shame, heartache and deep sorrow.
How sad that we cannot learn the lessons of yesterday
to know how to live today with a hope of tomorrow. Sin
destroys all of this. There is no hope of tomorrow in sin.

This weekend I fell in love; no kid-
ding, at age 50 I fell head over heels
in love. My new sweetheart is just
over 70 years old.
Nah, I haven't stepped out on John
but I have fell under the sweet spell,
of a little black beauty lovingly re-
ferred to as a Featherweight 221. My
new-old sewing. machine was made
by Singer between 1935 and 1938
some 70 years ago. This is the ma-,
chine our grandmothers and mothers
learned to sew on.
This featherweight reminds me'of
the first machine I ever owned. At
about age 8 I became the owner .of
an old treadle machine, which.:'as
owned by the late Cora Cason. Miss
Cora was the mother of my Aunt
Arma Beauchamp and through her I
received Miss Cora's machine, which
was a National Rotary sewing ma-
chine. As a child many happy hour's
were spent, treadling away making
one Barbie outfit after another. My
mother sewed very well making all
Smy clothes when I was young and she
always had lots of scraps to share.
A few years ago momma and I
made a trip up to Jemison, Alabama
to visit a nursery called Petals from
the Past. We timed our visit so that
we could attend their Antiques in
the Spring Garden show. During our
visit we bought several antique roses
and other plants including a beauti-
ful white perennial sweet pea. It was
at this garden and antique show that
I found my .new love, the feather-
weight. When I spotted the black box
type case I thought it might contain
a featherweight. The case not only
held my sweet little machine but also
included the original Singer book,
which came with the machine, all the
attachments including the ruffle and
tucker attachments but also the origi-
nal tube of oil. The elder gentleman
~ ho wvaws eling the machine said
that he picked it up at an estate sale
in the area -
Being an avid reader of quilt maga-
zines I read that many quilters raved
about these small portable machines.
For several years I had been on the
lookout for a featherweight and could
hardly believe that we stumbled upon
one at a nursery. My mother pur-
chased it for me as my birthday pres-
ent. And I brought it home and had it
serviced at the sewing machine repair
shop and promptly stored it away in
a closet.
I sew on a Husqvarna Viking sew-
ing machine, which I purchased new.
It's a wonderful machine that sews
very well and I have truly enjoyed
piecing quilts on the Husky machine.
Being in no hurry to learn how to run
the featherweight I just kept on using
the Husky.
Over the weekend I finally pulled it
out of the case and plugged it in and
fell madly in love with my Feather-
weight Singer 221. Folks, the little
old thing just has "charisma." The
small motor makes such a sweet little
humming sound and perfect stitches..
It was not any trouble to learn to st
on it at all because it was similqin
many ways to the treadle machine
that I learned to sew on all those
years ago.
I've been reading up on the Singer
221 Featherweights and have learned
a lot about them. I've learned the age
of my machine and a little history
on Featherweights. They were made
between 1933-1970 at the American
'Singer plant in Elizabethport, New
Jersey. If you have a black machine
with the number 221K it was Brit-
ish made in the Singer Kilbowie fac-
tory. This factory was on the edge of

Glasgow, Scotland. During WWII
the Singer Factory in New Jersey
stopped making machines and started
making items for the war effort. One
item they made was the U.S. military
model pistol. After the war the fac-
tory returned to make, the feather-
weight machines. Another interesting
note is that the term Featherweight
was actually used in the advertise-
ment for the Singer 221 machines but
it is not actually imprinted on the ma-
chine anywhere. In fact my machine
only has the word Singer imprinted
in the center of the machine. Feather-
weight referred to the lightness of the
machines, which is 10 pounds and 3
I only wish I knew who the original
owner of my machine was. I just wish
I could tell her.how I've fallen in love
with my new-old featherweight sew-
ing machine and I have affectionately
named her "Miss Cora." It's a fact
they just don't make them like they
used to... in the throw away society
that we live in today these machines
are a symbol of the last generation of
American craftsmanship.

The following recipe is one of
those that take a couple of hours to
make so don't try to make it if you
don't have the time. The secret is
that the steak and gravy bakes for a
long time. The meat juices slowly
cook out of the steak and that's what
makes it really good. I went into a lot
of detail so young cooks would have
more directions.

1. package of beef round steak
Vegetable oil
Alltpurpose flour
2 cups chopped onions
4 cups water
1 teaspoon black pepper
V teaspoon salt
1 can Campbell's cream of
mushroom soup .
V teaspoon Kitchen Bouquet,
Rinse steak and pat dry with pa-
per towel. Salt and pepper steak to
taste.-You can also sprinkle with a
little garlic powder. Let the seasoned
meat come to room temperature.
Heat about 1- inches of vegetable
oil in frying pan. Next flour and then
fry the steak in the hot oil. Once you
have finished frying the meat place
meat in casserole dish. As I am tak-
ing up the last pan of meat I turn my
burner temperature from just below
high to medium. It is important to
reduce the heat so the oil does not
burn. Slowly pour off the oil leaving
as many browned flour crumbs in the
bottom of the pan as possible. These
crumbs help flavor the gravy. Leave
about three tablespoons of oil in the
bottom of the frying pan. Sprinkle 3
tablespoons of flour in the oil and stir
it constantly. The flour will begin to
brown (This takes a little while) once
the flour is a rich brown add the on-
ions. Keep stirring until the onions
become tender. Next add about 2
cups of water and stir, then add the
can .of mushroom soup and stir un-
til it's smooth. At this point add the
Kitchen Bouquet if your gravy is not
brown enough. The gravy will begin
to thicken. You will need to add an
extra cup of water at this point. Now
the gravy will be rather runny. Pour
gravy over the steaks in the casse-
role dish and cover. Bake for 1 and
hours at 350 degrees. The runny
gravy will turn thick by the time the
steak has baked for this long.
This is one of my family's favor-
ite dishes and its good served with
mashed potatoes or rice.

"The City of Hawkinsville" by Barbara Hotton

"Rest at Last" by Bill Kilborn

by Bill Kilborn
A few months ago Lake City Com-
munity College put out a call for area
artists to submit art to be purchased
for a permanent exhibit through a
State of Florida Grant for Art in
Public Places. This culminated in an
art show held the last part of May
through the first part of June with the
final judging and purchase awards
being determined in Mid-June.
Three well-known Gilchrist Coun-
ty artists were chosen for a combined

total of 5 pieces of art purchased for
the permanent exhibit. Lois Fletcher
had two photographs, "Fall Splendor
ofthe Santa Fe," which depicted great
fall colors and reflections along the
banks of the Santa Fe River and "Im-
pressions of Time," which showed
footprints along a historic bank of the
Suwannee River. Barbara Hotton had
two watercolor paintings, "The City
of Hawkinsville," an authentic repro-
duction of the old steamship traveling
along the Suwannee River and "The

Trenton Depot," a sunset view of the
old Florida West Coast'Railroad De-
pot that still stands on Main Street in.
Trenton. Bill Kilborn had one photo-
graph, "Rest at Last," an interpretive
photo of the old railroad train engine
that used to sit across from the Tren-
ton Depot.

Works of these 3 talented artists
may be seen and purchased at Point of
View Antiques in Fanning Springs.
Congratulations go out to these lo-
cal artists for their fine work, show-
ing the history and beauty of Gilchrist

a disabled adult, obstructed felony
investigation ~
A High Springs couple was arrested
today for the second time in less than
30 days after a continued investiga-
tion by Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit
unveiled additional criminal charges.
Robert Timothy and Audrey Candice
Craft are each charged with neglect-
ing a disabled adult in their care and
providing false information to law
enforcement during a felony inves-
tigation. The couple was arrested by
authorities with the Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit and the Alachua County
Sheriff's Office.
Investigators with the Attorney
General's Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit began investigating the Crafts'
group home after receiving informa-
tion about possible abuse from the
Florida Department of Children and
Families, Adult Protective Services.
The Crafts were investigated by the
Medicaid Fraud Control Unit's Pa-
tient Abuse, Neglect and Exploitation
(PANE) team.
The investigation revealed that the
Crafts failed to seek adequate medical
services after a profoundly develop-
mentally disabled resident suffered a
fractured ankle. Further investigation
revealed that the resident had been
restrained with 'Velcro straps which
caused ligature marks and bruising.
After the June arrest, subsequent
investigation revealed that both Rob-
ert and Audrey Craft provided false
information to law enforcement of-
ficers during the initial investigation
in an attempt to impede the investiga-
tion and mislead authorities. Further
investigation revealed that during
December of 2006, the Crafts failed
to seek medical treatment when a
profoundly mentally disabled and au-
tistic resident developed a large, open
and infected sore.
Robert and Audrey Craft are each
charged with one felony count of
neglect of a disabled adult and one
misdemeanor count of providing
false information to law enforce-
ment officers during an investigation.
The felony count carries a maximum
penalty of five years in prison and a
$5,000 fine.
The misdemeanor charge is pun-
ishable by up to 60 days imprison-
ment and a $500 fine. The case will
be prosecuted by the Third Judicial
Circuit State Attorney's Office.

Assembly of Fine
Artists exhibit works at
Ameris Bank in Trenton
Art...a universal' language, is be-
ing exhibited by members of the As-
sembly of Fine Artists at the Ameris
Bank in'Trenton this month. The pub-
lic is invited to view this show during
banking hours.
This art experience is being ex-
pressed by use of many different ma-
terials of different subjects as differ-
ent as the artists themselves.
Those displaying their works are
C. Emery Mills,. owner of Catch the
Drift in Old Town, using unique

man-hours over 200 days using
flat-head screwdrivers and trowels.
Hulbert said this year's dry weather
extended the time they were able to
work in the quarry, now considered
the richest fossil site in the state for
complete skeletons. The museum is
working cooperatively with the land-
owners who support and encourage
the excavation, even lending use of
their equipment, at times. Still, the
location where Hulbert and his team
are digging is scheduled for eventual
mining and they have only one field
season 'left (2007-2008) to extract
more skeletons.
"Basically, we're operating as a
salvage operation," Hulbert said.

time weekly to washing, sorting and
repairing the material.
"We're looking for people who are
really good with puzzles," Hulbert
said. "Because despite the wonderful
preservation at the site, pressure has
crushed many of the bones into five,
10, or even 50 pieces that have to be
put back together."
This past year, Florida Museum
staff and 316 volunteers dug at the
site, located in a limestone quarry
near Newberry, for more than 8,000

"We're not recording as much data as
we would in a different situation, in
the interest of getting everything pos-
sible out of the ground."
The skeletons,' which are defined
here as half or more of a creature's
bones being successfully preserved
and collected, are located in a thick
layer of clay mixed with limestone
boulders. They date to about 2 mil-
lion years ago.
"This year, we got many skeletons
of two common species, one of the
turtles and the tapir," Hulbert said.
"But what's more exciting are the
rare species. They're driving the ex-
cavation now."
.Rare finds this season included a
partial skull of a rattlesnake with one
of the fangs, the oldest such specimen
ever found in Florida. Volunteers also
found a capybara, a large, barrel-
shaped rodent which is the first one
added to the Florida Museum's col-
lections with associated skull and jaw
material. The first relatively complete
skeleton from this site of an elephant-
like animal called a gomphothere also
was discovered this field season.
"Gomphotheres are the third
branch of the elephant family tree, as
opposed to the more familiar mast-
odon and the true elephants plus
mammoths, and are the largest in
terms of geographic distribution and

this site represents an iAteresting evo-
lutionary period for gomphotheres."
Fossil diggers also found the skel-
eton of an extinct, large rabbit -- the
first of its kind and likely a new spe-
cies -- and 16 giant armadillo skel-
etons, each 4 to 5 feet long, half of
which had associated skulls. Re-
searchers also discovered a potential
new species of mud turtle, identifi-
able by its distinctive shell and nearly .
complete skull.
"The mechanism of preservation at
this site favored tapirs," Hulbert said.
"We collected 38 tapir skeletons this
year." The Florida Museum enjoys a
friendly competition with East Ten-
nessee State University over who has
more tapir skeletons at their on-going
excavations. Hulbert said by the end

of this season the Florida Museum
had a total of 72 skeletons and now
leads the competition. This year's ex-
cavation was funded by a grant from
the National Science Foundation.

lected this field season," Hulbert

quilt, crafts and whatever. They're
getting things done for the Quilt

From Digital Games to
Vintage Vinyl at the Lake
City Community College
By Vickie Lepore, library coordi-
Tradition may tell you that Fri-
day the 13 is unlucky, but Lake City
Community College's (LCCC) Li-
brary is taking a break from this an-
cient history phobia to invite students
and community to the fourth gaming
event. The library will open at 10
a.m. and close at 11 p.m. The staff
will be watching for any marathon
gamers out there %\ho can endure
for the entire 13 hoirs..Test o- our ,-
berpower with congqQle.;and personal
computer games. Try something dif-
ferent like Guitar Hero or SingStar
Pop. Gamers are asked to bring con-
trollers and consoles and may even
organize their own tournament and
schedule, the conference room with
the plasma screen. There are games
already loaded onto the Library's
gaming computers for all ages and
levels of expertise. If you are not a
digital game player, try out the new
game table with the classic board
games of chess, checkers, backgam-
mon, scrabble, and monopoly. Speak-
ing of recreational, classic pleasures,
our small study room now has a re-
cord player and vintage vinyl albums
for listening enjoyment! Believe it,
there is actually a growing number of
young people who are experimenting
with.retrogressive music and media.
The library is making space for that
recent media interest, too.
In the past the library's gaming
programs have been open for play-
ers 16 years and older. For this event,
"lucky" 13-15 year-olds may attend
if they bring a note from a parent that
includes contact information. Gam-
ers younger than 13 years old will
need to be accompanied by an adult.
Everyone registers at the door for
this event. For every 13 persons reg-
istered there will be a door prize, At
the top of every hour, for 13 hours,
there will be drawings for prizes from
the event's sponsor, Bawls Energy
Drink. Beverages are free throughout
the event,-and free pizza will be de-
livered beginning at 5 p.m.
Suggestions from LCCC students
have influenced the gaming menu for
this event. Besides the action, RPGs,
and strategy games, the. event will
offer something for aspiring singers,
guitar players, dancers, and movie
buffs. How about that? Gamers ex-
ercise more than just their thumbs!
Singstar Pop, Guitar Hero, and Dance
Dance Revolution will be set up in
different areas of the library. Colum-
bia High School student Joseph Ponzi
Luiso will be the event's master of
ceremonies to keep players informed
about ground rules and the variety of
games and tournaments being offered
throughout the 13-hour event.
Even with the usual 100 partici-
pants attending these events, the
library facility handles the crowd
very well, and has a unique layout
that scatters everyone on two floors
and keeps the noise to a reasonable
fun-hum. Vickie Lepore, library co-
ordinator, and Jim Morris, library and
community services executive direc-,
tor, have not only read the research
that points to gaming as a future
pedagogical tool in middle and high-
er education, but have observed for
themselves how much young people
appreciate the college's active sup-
port for their high-tech recreational

Litigation continues for
local veterinary clinic in
Submitted by Tracie Daniels
Testimony will be heard by the
third judicial circuit court of Florida
on Monday, July 16th, at 2:00 PM
at the Suwannee County courthouse
regarding the zoning for a veterinary
clinic in O'Brien.
Dr. Tracie Daniels, local veterinar-
ian and fifth-generation resident of
O'Brien, has been in a near two-year
legal battle to get the zoning approv-
al. Application to the zoning board
was first submitted on September 15,
2005, and the board unanimously
ruled in Daniels' favor five months
later on January 26th, 2006.
Roxanne Tice, horse trainer and
former south Florida resident, owns
the property next to the proposed fa-
cility. For the appeal, Tice has em-'
ployed several lawyers from Ruden
McClosky, which is a large firm of al'-
most 200 lawyers in 11 cities through-
out Florida and Venezuela. Although
other objections by Tice were raised,
the only issue that made it to appeal
is adherence of the proposed facility
to the Suwannee County land devel-
opment regulations. Daniels com-
ments, "It is very difficult financially
maintaining such a large amount of
land just for one small veterinary
clinic. We have not spent one dime
yet on building. It was my intention
to only have a few acres like many
of my colleagues in the profession.
No other clinic in this or surrounding'
counties even comes close to meet-
ing the requirements. I now have to
abide by. Some of these don't even
make sense for a large animal facil-
ity. However, because of the scrutiny
now upon us due to Ms. Tice, we will
have to keep all the land and find a
way to make it work. I am open to
any ideas from the community as
well. There is a nationwide shortage
of large animal vets. I am only build-
ing here because it is my hometown,

My Safe Florida Home
blowing through wind
CFO Sink urges more homeowners to
sign-up for free wind inspections.
.More than one month ahead of
schedule, Florida Chief Financial
Officer Alex Sink announced that
the My Safe Florida Home (MSFH)
program has "blown" through its
waiting list and urged more Florida
homeowners to take advantage of
the valuable service through the pro-
gram. Since the program resumed of-
fering inspections in late April, more
than 50,000 Floridians who were on
the program's waiting list from the
pilot phase have received free wind
After the program got off to a slow
start in 2006, Chief Financial Offi-
cer Sink streamlined the program to
provide better service to more Flo-
ridians. New applicants can apply
at the MSFH program's web-site at
www.MySafeFloridaHome.com or
over the program's toll-free helpline
at 1-866-513-MSFH (6734).. With a
free wind inspection from the MSFH
program, Floridians can learn how
safe their homes are, what they can
do to strengthen their homes against
hurricanes, and if they are eligible for
matching grants up to $5,000 to help
harden their homes.
"As a businesswoman, I wanted the
My Safe Home program to serve Flo-
ridians more efficiently and provide

the critical information homeowners
needed to harden their homes," said
Chief Financial Officer Sink, whi
leads the Department of Financial
Services. "We are well on our way,
to informing Florida families aboidf
ways to harden their homes and help-
ing them save money on their insur-;
ance premiums."
Any Floridian who lives in a singlet
family, site-built home is eligible for a'
free wind inspection through the pro-,
gram. Homeowners who receive e free.
wind inspections through the NMSFH
program will receive a detailed in-
spection report, complete with eli-
gibility, information on matching,
grants and estimated insurance pre-
mium discounts, if the homeowner is
eligible. In order to be eligible for the
program's matching grant reimbur-e-'
ments of up to $5,000, homeown-
ers who sign-up now must meet the
following requirements under a new.
law: have received a completed i\ md
inspection report after May 1, 2007;
live in a single-family, site-built
home -- built before March 1, 2002;'
have a valid homestead exemption,'
insured value of $300,000 or less';,
and be located in the windborne de-,
bris region.
Chief Financial Officer Sink led
the Florida Cabinet to require insui;-
ance companies for the next 90 days
to recognize the MSFH wind inspec-'
tion reports as sufficient evidence fdi
homeowners to access insurance pre-'
mium discounts, if they are eligible:
Previously, participating hom-,
eowners were required by insurance
companies to hire a wind inspector
or other licensed professional to fill
out a separate form to access insur-
ance discounts, often at great cost t&
the consumer. After 90 days, future
inspections with the MSFH program
will include a certified Uniform Miti-
gation Form for Florida homeowners'
who are eligible for a discount ofi.
their insurance premiums. Since April'
2007, the MSFH program has award-'
ed more than 5,600 grants to homed-
owners to harden their homes. Nearly,
250 homeowners hax e completed the
improvements recommended in their'
inspection reports for a total payout-
of more than $680,000. Homeowners'
are being reimbursed for half the cost
up to $5,000 on a variety of home'
improvements, including hurricane
shutters, reinforced garage doors and:
roof enhancements. Chief Financial'
Officer Sink's goal is to complete'
400,000 free wind inspections.

First Trenton Farmers' Market

Hot Summer Chili Cook-Off a


Here they are! The top winners of the 1st Trenton Farmers' Market
Hot Summer Chili Cook-off at the historic Trenton Train Depot are:
Mary Cook (left) from Williston, who took the Grand Prize with her
piquant venison chili, and Denise Montgomery (right) of the Bell
Montgomery Farms CSA, who brought us a completely organic, ab-
solutely delicious beef and bean chili with fresh tomatoes. The win-
ters were only 2 votes apart. They won great prizes donated by our
sponsors: the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe, Soiuthern Tire, Trenton
ACE Hardware, Tom Hogan Cabinetry, Lenore Nichols Pottery, Bar-
blra Hotton, Dove's Roost Yarns, Steph-Lo Farms, and Best Drugs
of Trenton. Heard on the platform, again and again, were the words,
"Why didn't you tell me there were such cool prizes? I'd have brought
my chili...and I would have won, too!" Standing between the winners
is Mercedes, Denise's granddaughter, who danced every dance in front
ofthe band... the Flying Turtles Hot Band.

Summer is here, be
poison safe
School is out. Children and fami-
lies are on the move and making
plans for their favorite time of the
year --- summer! With the travel-
ing, hosting guests in your home, or
just outside enjoying the weather,
children are at greater risk of poi-
soning during the summer months.
During last year's summer months,
June-August,there were over 28,000
poisoning emergency calls through-
out the state of Florida. Most of these
calls concerned sedative/hypnotics,
acetaminophen containing products,
cosmetics, and insecticides. Of the
total number of poison emergency
calls, almost 13,000 calls statewide
were for children age six and under.
It is often difficult to maintain a
poison-proof environment during the
summer season, but a few simple tips
can help reduce the chance of poison-
ing emergencies, especially in chil-
dren. The Florida Poison Information
Center Jacksonville (FPICJAX)
offers the 'following tips to help keep
you safe during the summer. For poi-
soning emergencies, call the FPIC-
JAX at 1-800-222-1222.
When using insect repellents, make
sure you read the directions first and
carefully. Some repellents are not
meant to be applied to the skin, how-
ever, when applying to skin, apply
only to exposed skin. When applying
to the face, spray on the hands and
rub onto fae, being careful to avoid
the eyes and mouth. Do not spray on
children's hans because they tend

to rub their eyes or mouths. Wash all
sprayed areas with soap and water
when indoors, where repellent is no
longer necessary. Repeated applica-
tions may be dangerous; wash with
soap and water before reapplying re-
Immediately call the Poison In-
formation Center if you believe you
have been bitten or stung by any of
the following: coral snake, cotton-
mouth (water moccasin), rattlesnake,
brown recluse spider, black widow
spider, fire ants, jellyfish, or Portu-
guese man-o-war.
Many chemicals used to control in-
sects, rodents and weeds are as toxic
to humans as they are to their intend-
ed victims. When ingested or inhaled
in very small amounts, most are capa-
ble of producing illness. Avoid using
products that require leaving powder
or pellets in areas where children and
pets may have access to them.
The Florida Poison Information
Center Jacksonville is available
365 days a year, 24 hours a day. Call
the Center at 1-800-222-1222 (Voice/
TYY) for poisoning emergencies or
to ask for information. The Center is
staffed with skilled healthcare pro-
fessionals who give rapid life-saving
information, promote cost-effective
* treatment and prevention, and per-'
sonal service, often going the next
step to ensure peace of mind during
a poisoning emergency.
The Florida Poison Information
Center Jacksonville is designated as
an accredited regional poison control
center by the American Association
of Poison Control Centers.

Levy County site named as
preferred location for

potential nuclear expansion
Progress Energy Florida has chosen Westinghouse Electric Co.'s
AP1000 reactor technology for the potential future expansion of its nu-
clear fleet.
"Progress Energy Florida is committed to the safety and security of
our plants, and the Westinghouse AP1000 incorporates state-of-the-art
technology in its design," said Danny Roderick, Vice President of nuclear
projects and construction for Progress Energy Florida. "We believe that
nuclear energy must continue to be a part of a balanced approach to meet-
ing the state's growing needs. Nuclear energy provides significant bene-
fits from a cost stability standpoint and maximizes energy, independence,
and environmental responsibility."
The Westinghouse AP1000 is an advanced 1,100-megawatt nuclear
power plant that uses passive safety system designs and engineering sim-
plicity to enhance plant reliability and reduce construction costs. The
AP1000 has 87 percent less cable, 83 percent less pipe, 50 percent fewer
values and 35 percent fewer pumps than the generation of reactors in
operation today. More information can be found online at http://www.
westinghousenuclear.com/AP 1000.
Progress Energy has named a site in southern Levy County as the
Preferred location for potential nuclear expansion in Florida. The tech-
nology selection is an important step in the process. The decision on
whether to build a plant remains at least a year away. The Levy County
site is about 3,000 acres, located about seven miles inland from the Gulf
of Mexico and eight miles north of the company's Crystal River Energy
Complex in Citrus County.
The proposed site is going through detailed assessments, including en-
vironmental and weather studies. Progress Energy Florida anticipates
filing a need case with the Florida Public Service Commission in early
2008. If the decision is to move forward with building the plant, site
preparations could begin as early as 2010, construction could begin in
2012, with commercial operation scheduled for 2016.
Progress Energy previously announced that it will use the Westing-
house technology in the Carolinas as well, if the decision is made to move
forward with a new nuclear plant there. Using the same technology in
both locations will help increase the efficiency of construction and main-
tenance, which benefits all customers.

FWC offers gator-hunting classes

.-The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
is offering alligator hunters no-cost,
three-hour classes to help them pre-
pare for the Aug. 15 Nov. 1 state-
wide alligator harvest. Reservations
are not required to attend a class.
- This is an opportunity for hunters
who have never participated in the
state's alligator hunts to learn what
hunting alligators is all about. Atten-
dance is not mandatory for licensed
hunters, but the FWC recommends
participants attend, especially if they
have never gator-hunted. Class top-
ics include preparing for the hunt,
hunting techniques and safety, har-
vesting and processing, caring for
your alligator hide and alligator rules
and regulations.

All but eight of the fatalities were
the result of drowning, and none of
the drowning victims were wearing
life jackets.
The most likely county for boaters
to be in an accident was Monroe, fol-
lowed ,in order by Palm Beach, Mi-
ami-Dade, Pinellas, Lee, Broward,
Collier, Brevard, Escambia and Du-
The most likely month for the ac-
cident to happen was July. The most
likely time of day to be in an accident
was 4-6 p.m., and the most common
type of accident was a collision with
another vessel or a fixed object.
Accidents occur most frequently
on rivers or creeks, but the number
of accidents on the ocean or gulf or
in a bay or sound are almost as high.
Nearly 600 of the state's accidents oc-
curred while the vessel was cruising,
and more than 400 of them occurred
when the operator was not trying
to change direction while cruising.
Small vessels, especially those under
18 feet long, were the most likely to
be involved in accidents.
A typical accident involved a pri-
vately owned vessel, operated care-
lessly or without a lookout, with the
operator being a male at least 22 years
old most likely 36-50 years old.

Could have been Melon
By Susan Marney
During the 1920s the western re-
gion ofAlachua County, Florida, was
agricultural much like it is today. The
farmers and growers of the area were
disgusted with paying high taxes and
the money all going to Gainesville
for improvements around the city
when their area needed a new road
from Fanning Springs to Gainesville.
So, they organize d petitioned the
state to create a new county of 348
square miles bordered on the North
by the Santa Fe River, on the West by
the Suwannee River, South by Levy
County, and East by Alachua County.
The name suggested by the residents
was Melot for the agri-industry of
watermelon growing.
The Florida legislature considered
Melon but planned to name the new
county, after President Woodrow

aialir, Pit.,'c*
I Il


Wilson when they received word
that former Governor Albert Waller
Gilchrist was on his deathbed. Gov-
ernor Gilchrist held office 1909-
1913; he resided in Punta Gorda,
Florida, just north of Fort Myers. So,
on December 5, 1925, an amendment
was passed making the new county's
name Gilchrist. Gilchrist County be-
came the 67th and youngest county
in Florida.
The main industry in Gilchrist
County remains agriculture, but
has changed quite a lot since.1925.
Changing popular views on tobacco
forced farmers to grow other crops
such as peanuts, melons, and sweet
corn. Our county has several large
dairy farms and numerous other
small industrial plants. Many resi-
dents have created their own ,jobs
with home businesses or "cottage
industries." Among these are artists
and writers who have found Gilchrist
County to be a fine refuge to create
their own work.
Tourism and the 320 fresh-water
springs have created more traffic to
our county. With the exposure to
abundant natural resources and a mild
climate Gilchrist County has become
more desirable for those looking
to relocate from both the Northern
states and South Florida. The popu-
lation according to the U.S. Bureau
of Census in 1960 was 2868 with an
increase to 9667 by 1990. The most
recent census in 2000 showed the
population at 14,437 and the 2005
estimate showed an increase to 16,
402. Property values have increased
in recent years with several housing
developments being created where
melons and other cash crops were
grown for years.
Many of the county's residents
have deep family roots in Gilchrist
County and take pride in telling visi-
tors that Trenton, the county seat,
has only one traffic light. Gilchrist
County does-have over 20 churches,
fresh air and water, boating, camping
and community living in Bell, Tren-
ton, and Fanning Springs. Despite
the growth in population and chang-
ing lifestyles, Gilchrist County is one
of the few places remaining in the
world where a handshake is still used
to make a deal and a person's word
is his bond.

tory archaeologists are rehabilitating
the world's largest collection of Calu-
sa Indian artifacts and specimens,
thanks to a $284,504 grant recently
awarded by the National Endowment
for the Humanities.
The Calusa artifacts and specimens
-- from fish otoliths and Spanish
glass beads to shavings left over from
working with wood, shell and stone
--.are unique because they comprise
the only large, systematic collection
from a major town site of this people
The Calusa occupied, Pineland,
located west of Fort Myers on the
shore of Pine Island, for 15 centu-
ries. Florida Museum archaeolo-
gists William Marquardt and Karen
Walker and hundreds of volunteers
excavated the site, now part of the
Florida Museum's Randell Research
Center, between 1988 and 1995. The
scientists now face the challenge of
conserving and preserving the more
than 141,000 specimens, which they
say are extremely valuable for educa-
tion and research.
"Pineland's long period of occupa-
tion and the collection's broad range
of extensively documented materials
mean that even its smallest elements
are in great demand by researchers,"'
Marquardt said.
"When we look at the larger picture
and the human artifacts in the context
of the human-environmental speci-
mens, we start to see patterns that
speak to us about the cultural and en-
vironmental changes that took place.
It's important to keep these materials
in good condition so they can keep
telling these stories and reveal new
stories into the future."
Walker said much of the collection
remains unanalyzed.
"There are many possible theses
and dissertations waiting to be dis-
covered in this collection," she said.
"Its rehabilitation will greatly facili-
tate both its research and educational
The Calusa were once the most
powerful people in South Florida un-
til they vanished in the early 1700s.
They built extensive mounds and ca-
nals, engaged in long-distance trade,
collected taxes from dozens of towns
and developed elaborate belief sys-
tems and arts--remarkably, without
reliance on staple-crop agriculture.
Marquardt said the longevity and
utility of the Calusa collection is
threatened by current storage and or-
ganization methods. Researchers will
rehabilitate the collection by rehous-
ing artifacts, specimens and samples
using an archival bagging and boxing
method that will maintain physical
order by catalog number and detailed

"The collection suffers from in-
complete curation and a high level of
past use for research and education,"
Marquardt said. "In addition, the ar-.
tifacts are overcrowded as a result of
expansion due to intensive ceramic
Curation is the process of caring
for a scientific collection. It requires
meticulous hours of conservation,
preservation, repair, systematic orga-
nization and detailed record keeping.
The Florida Museum's Calusa col-,
lection is largely comprised of arti-,
facts, human-environmental speci-
mens and associated archaeological
records. (Artifacts, in the archaeo-
logical sense, are objects created or'
modified by humans.) Artifacts from
the Calusa collection include Span-
ish-derived glass and ceramic objects;,
Native American pottery sherds; ob-
jects made of shell, bone and stone;
and waterlogged wood, seeds and
other organic materials.
Florida Museum archaeobotanist
Donna Ruhl cares for hundreds of
specimens collected from a water-,
logged area of the Pineland site, and
is experimenting with different meth-
ods of wet storage. The specimens
can't be allowed to dry due to the
threat of extreme shrinking and deg-
"The primary goal behind long-
term curation is preserving the mate-
rial for future research," Ruhl said.'
"For example, we have to consider
the potential hazards of storing weft
specimens with fungicide or herbi-
cide additives meant to prevent algal,
blooms; bacteria, or other microbial' -
growth because that additive might.

falsifying Medicaid
A Putnam County man was ar-
rested today and charged with caus-
ing false billing claims to be filed
with Florida's Medicaid program,
Attorney General Bill McCollum
today announced. Curtis Wright al-
legedly submitted claims for more
than $15,000 to his employer to ap-
ply for Medicaid reimbursement over
a 17-month period. Wright was ar-
rested by law enforcement with the
Attorney General's Medicaid Fraud
Control Unit and the Putnam County
Sheriff's Office.
An investigation conducted by
the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit re-
vealed that Wright, 46, worked as a
non-residential support service care
giver for Brown's Supports & Ser-
vices. During the period of time in
question, Wright regularly submitted
false progress reports to his employ-
er, who then forwarded the claims, to
the Medicaid program for reimburse-
ment. Wright's employer is not being
criminally charged in the case at this
Wright was booked into the Put-
nam County Jail. He is charged with
Medicaid fraud and grand theft, both
thirId-degree felonies punishable by
up to five years in prison and a $5,000
fine. The case will be prosecuted by
the State Attorney's Office for the 7th
Judicial Circuit.

2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
for the City of Trenton, FL
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide
you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed
to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is drawn ground water from wells. The wells draw water from the Floridan aquifer, which is then chlorinated for disinfection purposes.

In 2004 the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of
contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are three potential sources of contamination identified for this system with high susceptibility levels. The assessment results are available on the DEP Source
Water Assessment and Protection Program website at www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp

This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.

If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Jered Ottenwess at (352) 463-4000. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility.
If you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the first Monday of each month.
The City of Trenton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of Janqary 1 to December 31, 2006. Data obtained before January 1, 2006, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the
laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviation. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow fora margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of
microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the
use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/1) one part by weight of analyte to I million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (lag/1) one, part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pCi/L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
** Results in the Level Detected'column for radiological contaminants, inorganic contaminants, synthetic organic contaminants including pesticides and herbicides, and volatile organic
contaminants are the highest average at any of the sampling points or the highest detected level at any sampling point, depending on the sampling frequency.

We failed (o complete required sampling for total coliform and therefore were in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements. Because we did not take the required number of samples, we did not
know whether the contaminants were' present in your drinking water, and we are unable to tell you whether your health was at risk during that time. The monitoring period was 1/1/06 through 1/31/06. Five
samples were required and only two were taken. Sampling resumed on 2/21/06.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.

Contaminants that may be present in source water include:

(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production,
mining, or farming. "
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations,
urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.

Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or othet immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking
water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotlihe (800-426-4791).
We at the City of Trenton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of
your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

try joined together to lean and share.
During the opening of Kids Fest at
Dollywood on June 15 following
the premier performance of the all
new 2007 show at her Imagination
Playhouse, Cavanah had the honor
of being on stage with Dolly Parton
during a question and answer period
to discuss Dolly's original vision of
the Imagination Library and how that
vision has continued to expand. The
Imagination Library Program is fo-
cused on early learning and provides
a free hardcover book each month to
registered children from birth to their
fifth birthday. All related cost is paid
by the sponsor in each community
where the program is offered. Cava-
nah organized the Bell Imagination
Library and. in cooperation with the

Bell Library Volunteers, Inc. Cava-
nah and his family are sponsoring the
children living within the town limits
of the town of Bell.
Currently, Cavanah is organizing
a ride from Seattle to Miami which
would be held May 5, 2008 thru
Dec. 7, 2008, if all goes as planned.
"Cross America" sponsors would
pay for stick horse riders to cover the
4,300 miles, with exciting stick horse
events held along the way. The ride
will be 25 to 35 miles per day, and
will stop overnight in more than 176
communities, and will have more that
8,600 kids riding 4,300 miles on stick
horses. To register your child, or for
additional information about Dolly
Parton's Imagination Library, contact
Dan Cavanah at (352) 213-3221.
