County can make it through 2008 barring any emergencies

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
held a budget workshop meeting on
Monday afternoon to get a better un-
derstanding of the revenue shortfalls
that are yet to be received from Tal-

_Wa W. p

"This down-turn in the economy is
something that is out there, whether
it is a recession or the impact from
Amendment 1, it is real and Gilchrist
County needs to be prepared for the
future," said Gilchrist County Clerk
Joe Gilliam when he explained the

situation involving the county short-
falls to the board in the beginning of
the meeting.
County Finance Director Jackie
Johnson explained to the board that
barring an emergency affecting over-
spending of the county's budgets,

Gilchrist County could get through
2008, but 2009 will force the rural,
financially-constrained county to re-
assess current policies when the 2009
budgets are planned.
The four-member board was re-
minded that the governor is still

Study exchange leads

Bell teacher to France

By Carrie A. Mizell
The 6-year-old students in Thom-
as Cannon's first grade class at Bell
Elementary School will miss their
teacher when he leaves on Friday for
a month-long sabbatical to France as
part of the 2008 Rotary International
District 6940 Group Study Exchange
On Friday Cannon and his four
teammates, all selected from through-
out District 6940, which covers 25
counties in north Florida stretch-
ing from Pensacola to Lake City
and south to Williston, will fly into
Hamburg, Germany before travel-
ing to the south of France. While in
France, Cannon will stay with four
different host families as he partici-
pates in a number of activities. He
will also have the opportunity to visit
schools in France where he hopes to
compare and contrast the differences
in curriculum and hopefully meet the
president of Rotary International.
"I love traveling," Cannon said.
"I am looking forward to the cuisine
and the personal connections I will

A lot of preparation has gone
into the trip, Cannon said. Learning
French in three months has been dif-
ficult for the Bell native who said
Rotary International provided all the
Group Study Exchange members
with a three-month version of the
Rosetta Stone software to help each
one learn the language.
While in France, Cannon will stay
connected with his family, friends
and students by posting a Blog on the
Internet, where he will keep an online
journal at www.rotary6940gse.org
According to Judge Ed Philman, a
team from France participating in the
Group Study Exchange Program will
visit Gilchrist County on April 21.
Cannon thanked the Trenton Ro-
tary Club and specifically Judge Ed
Philman for recommending his ap-
plication at the district level. He also
thanked the Gilchrist County School
District for allowing him the oppor-
tunity to take the sabbatical trip.
Cannon will return to Gilchrist
County on April 26 with fond memo-
ries, numerous photographs and a
firm grasp of the French language.

Osborn Barker to run for

Levy Property Appraiser

It is election time: A time when
you must ask yourself if your elected
officials are really being accountable
through the conduct and operation of
their offices? Are they earning your
support, trust and confidence through
their leadership of the County's gov-
ernment and management of your

hard-earned tax dollars? Do you real-
ly feel they are working in your best
interest, or do you feel more like they
work for the folks in Tallahassee?
My name is Osborn "Oz" Barker,
and I am seeking the position of Levy
County Property Appraiser as a Re-
publican candidate. I am concerned
about the issues of taxation, govern-
ment spending, property rights and
unfair state regulations that are af-
fecting all of us.
My decision to run for Property
Appraiser was not made recently or
quickly. I have been thinking about
it for a long time, building on those
experiences I would need to be an

The Gilchrist County Planning
Commission approved Special Use
Permit 08-05 by James Johnson when
the applicant addressed the board in
its Monday evening meeting.
Johnson had earlier made an appli-
cation for a Special Use Permit 08-
03 involving anr Agriculture-2 zoned
site at the intersection of SR 47 and
CR 232. When the meeting opened
board member Michelle Crawford
made a motion to switch the special
use permit applications so the SUP
08-05 would be first on the agenda,
a second was given before the board
approved the agenda modification. It
was reported that the county staff and
board members had received numer-
ous contacts in opposition to the site
on CR 232, so the applicant chose to
present that site second.
Taylor Brown, Gilchrist County
planner, presented the application
to the planning commission. He ex-
plained the 25-acre Industrial zoned
site is at 4659 SW 80th Street. The
entrance to this proposed mulch and
landscape products processing plant
would be off of CR-313 onto the
property. This site is bordered by SW
80th St on the north and existing in-
dustrial zoned property on the west
and south. This property is currently

CR 313 site
owned by KJS, LLC of Port St. Lu-
cie, Fla.
The county planner expressed
that the staff recommended this ap-
plication be approved with specific
conditions. These conditions are: 1.
There shall be no in-ground fuel stor-
age on the property and 2. Approval
of Special-Use Permit is conditional
upon applicant receiving site plan ap-
A planning board member asked if
the semi-trucks would be transport-
ing freight to and from SR-26 along
CR-313, and if CR-313 needs to be
widened. Brown told the board that
he did not see where CR-313 needed
to be widened along the estimated
one-mile stretch of highway to the
entrance at 4659 SW 80th Street.
"I think it is a good business for
Gilchrist County that will provide
jobs and good prices for timber pro-
duction," James Johnson told the
The applicant was asked what type
of motors would be powering the

Daniel Slaughter announces

candidacy for sheriff

Dear Fellow Gilchrist County Citi-
I'm Daniel Slaughter and I am
excited to announce my candidacy
for Gilchrist County Sheriff. I am
married to Cindy Slaughter who has
worked at Ayers Health and Rehabil-
itation Center for the past 18 years.
We have four wonderful, grown,
successful and independent children
who have blessed us with 8 beautiful
grandchildren! It is with. my family's
love, encouragement and support that
I now become a candidate for Gil-
christ County Sheriff.
I am a native of Gilchrist County
and I have a deep desire to see our
community remain a safe and peace-
ful place to live, work and raise a
family. I understand the outcome of
the race for Sheriff will have a direct
impact on your quality of life. That
is why I am asking for your support
to become your next Sheriff.
I have more than 20 years of Law
Enforcement service and experience.
I have been with the Gilchrist County
Sherriff's Office for the past 15 years
and I am currently Lieutenant Com-
mander of Investigations. If given

Daniel Slaughter
the honor of becoming your Sheriff,
on-the-job training would not be nec-
essary. My experience on the front
lines and my management and lead-
ership roles haye provided me with a
deep knowledge of all aspects of Law
Enforcement. I believe in important
values including acting with integrity
and demonstrating respect and my
motto is: "Do the Right Thing."

holding onto over $400,000 that was
hopefully going to be given to the
county in 2008 involving the impacts
from Amendment 1.
The governor was also less than
generous when he left out the
$277,000 solid waste grant from the
2009 budget that allows Gilchrist
County to provide recycling locations
in different parts of the county dur-

ing the month. Commissioner Randy
Durden made a motion to reduce the
maximum expenditure for depart-
ment heads to $500 and the County
Administrator to $1,500 on necessary
expenditures for the remaining 2008
budget year. Commissioner Sharon
Langford gave a second to the pro-
posal before the board voted 4-0 in
favor of the motion.

Farm Bureau members attend legislative

reception in Tallahassee

Pictured standing-Mr. Roy Wilson, Jim Jones, Commissioner Charles Bronson, Ben Colson, Frank Colson,
Kenny Corbin, and Larry Merritt. Seated were a member from Marion County, Mrs. Ruby Lee Wilson,
and Kay Corbin. Not pictured was Barbara Merritt.
The Gilchrist County Farm Bureau had nine members attend the Farm Bureau Legislative Reception in Tallahassee
last Tuesday. Farm Bureau holds the reception in the Spring of each year to discuss issues with state representatives.
This year the members met with several of the legislators including Debbie Boyd of Newberry. Commissioner of
Agriculture Charles Bronson, was also in attendance to discuss current issues. One of the hot topics was the current
proposal to cut IFAS funding at the University of Florida. Farm Bureau opposes any cuts but especially cuts that
would reduce IFAS funding by more than its equal share.

Sturgeon returning to Suwannee River

The Gulf sturgeon are beginning
their annual migration back into the
Suwannee River, and the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) reminds boaters to slow
down and be aware these fish are
Nine people were injured in acci-
dental collisions with jumping stur-
geon during 2007. A fatal incident
occurred after a sturgeon jumped in
front of a boat. The boat operator
swerved abruptly to avoid a colli-
sion, causing two people to be eject-
ed into the water, with one of the men

"We certainly don't want a repeat
of last year," said Maj. Lee Beach, re-
gional law enforcement commander
for FWC's North Central Region,
based in Lake City. "We want people
to be aware that the sturgeon are re-
turning, and the risk of injury to boat-
ers does exist."
"We have posted signs at each boat
ramp along the Suwannee, explaining
the risk of impacts with these fish,"
Beach said. "We will be checking
those boat ramps this month to en-
sure all the signs are still in place."

What's the best course of action for
avoiding a collision?
"We recommend boaters reduce
their speed to reduce the risk of im-
pact and to give people more time to
react if they do encounter a jumping
sturgeon," Beach said. "The FWC
also recommends that all boaters
wear their life jackets."
The Suwannee River appears to
support the largest viable population
of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate
the annual population at 6,500 to
7,500 fish, each averaging approxi-
mately 40 pounds.

It seemed fitting that Buck Mitch-
ell, his son Jed, and former Paynes

Together Buck Mitchell of Trenton
and Jack Gillen of Micanopy started
the Park Service Cracker cow herd
at Dudley Farm after traveling 150
miles south to Kissimmee State Park
in 1997 to hand-pick the cows that
are now the mainstay of the Dudley
herd. At the cow penning and
worming, Buck Mitchell spun some
tales of his USDA inspections of the
Dudley herd in the 1970s when Miss
Myrtle Dudley would get him to do
such extras as 'hang a gate, worm
her cat, fix the plumbing ... besides
working her herd of cows.
It was Buck Mitchell who con-
vinced Miss Dudley that donating her
farm to the state park service would
help preserve it for generations to
As one of Florida's original pio-
neer farms, Dudley Farm still contin-
ues many of the old-time traditions.
In the early 1900s, Miss Dudley
recalled the excitement of the cattle
"Here they would come down the
old road through our farm," Dudley
said. "A'whoopin' and a'hollerin' and
cracking their whips."
According to Buck Mitchell, the
cowmen watered their horses and
cows at the Dudley watering hole and
camped for the night. Dudley Farm
was a holdover place for the herds
coming from Dixie and Taylor Coun-
ties on their way to Paynes Prairie.
Today that watering hole is dry,
but the cow pens and cattle dipping
vat still exist at the Florida State
Park Service. The park service pre-
serves the 18 historic buildings that
comprise this National Register site.

John's Comments

By: John M. Ayers

The agriculture producers in the
North Central Florida area were sit-
ting on the edge of their seats Tues-
day morning to see if the thermom-
eter would fall below the freezing
mark. The wind was reported to be
blowing ever so slightly in hopes of
erasing any type of frost that might
have settled on local agriculture crops
and gardens.
I have always been told that by
waiting to plant tomatoes and other
varieties of transplants until after Eas-
ter and the Full Moon in March, that
I would not have anything to worry
about, well that too was shot down
by Mother Nature Tuesday morning
when scattered frost appeared in sev-
eral areas of Gilchrist County.
Many agriculture producers began
setting their watermelon transplants
in the ground since the last week in
February. Some of these producers
had rather gamble hoping they would
not be hit by any more cold freezes
this year and be ahead in the market.
The extreme March winds have
been blowing for several days, which

have also caused some scattered
damage on some watermelon fields
in the area.
Many of the producers reported'
that the warm weather on Saturday
through Monday heating up the black
plastic beds will also provide an in-
sulating factor along with the drip
irrigation that will be supporting ele-
ments to ward off near freezing tem-
Anthony Drew, the assistant direc-
tor of Levy County Extension Ser-
vice, expressed to his class of Master
Gardner students that when many
different types of adverse conditions
involving the elements stress a trans-
plant, it will take a matter of time be-
fore it will again begin to grow.
Tuesday morning when I left our
house coming to work, I looked at
the outside thermostat and it identi-
fied 33.80. I didn't even take the time
to look at my tomato plants in the
garden, I'm just hoping when I get
on this afternoon that the leaves are
not bit.

Dear Editor:
The IRS needs special help this
year from the public.
Starting in May, economic stimulus
payments of up to $600 for individu-
als ($1.,200 for married couples)
will be issued by the IRS. Parents
also get $300 for each eligible child.
To get a payment, people must file
a 2007 tax return. That's it.
But here's where the IRS needs
help. Millions of people are eligible
but may not know it. These are cer-
tain retirees, disabled vets and low-
wage workers who normally don't
file a tax return. This year, they must
file to receive a stimulus payment.
People can help themselves, friends
or family by helping us spread the
People who have at least $3,000
from wages or certain benefits from
Social Security, Railroad Retirement
and Veterans Affairs may be eligible,
but they need to file a return. We'll
do the rest.

Letter to the Editor
After reading your article last week
"Now and Then," I feel compelled to
write to defend my son's character.
I am sorry this incident happened
to Carrie Mizell. I can only hope that
a few bad kids don't ruin any chances
that these kids have in finding a safe
place to skate.
My son was not a part of this so
called "posse." In fact, he was getting
prepared to attend the town meeting
to try to resolve this problem of try-
ing to find a safe place to skate. We
have raised our son to show respect to
adults. I do happen to know what my
son is doing after school each day.
The majority of these boys I have
been around. These boys are fun to
be with and are kind and respectful
when I am with them. By the way,
most of them wouldn't be caught
dead in droopy pants. They might not
look like your typical preppy kids, but
they do not need to be stereotyped.
As a parent of a skateboarder, I
want to see my son skating. I do not
want to see my son skating on city
streets or trespassing on private prop-
erty. I would like to encourage other
parents of skateboarders to help get
involved and fundraise for equip-
ment and safe alternatives for our

Fire trucks have four wheels and eight fire fighters;
four plus eight equals twelve. There are twelve inches in a
foot. A foot is a ruler. Queen Elizabeth is a ruler, and .the
Queen Elizabeth is one of the largest ships on the seven
seas. Seas have fish. Fish have fins. The Finns fought the
Russians. The Russians are red. Fire trucks are usually
rushin'. Therefore, fire trucks are usually red! This all
makes perfect sense to anyone trying to make a
conclusive argument to show why fire trucks need to be
red. It does not matter that most of the conclusions have
nothing to do with one another but any argument that
begins with a supposition of truth will end with a
conclusion of truth or so it seems.
John writes in the Revelation: "Here is wisdom. He
that hath understanding, let him count the number of
the beast; for it is the number of a man: and his number
is Six hundred and sixty and six." (13:18).
Prognosticators of our modern time have continued the
historical search for the identity of who the 666 refers to
and have used myriad of formulas to construct elaborate
arguments of identification. A recent article supports this
theme: "What about 666? Let's take a shocking look. On
the Pope's official mitre has been seen the title 'Vicarius
Filii Dei,' which means 'Vicar of the Son of God.' The
claim that this is his official title. has been stated publicly
through the years." The article then begins to break
down this title using the meaning of Roman numerals in
the following order: V=5; I=1; C=100; A=0; R=0; I=1;
U=5; S=0; F=0; I=1; L-=50; I=1; I=1; D=500; E=0' I=1.
When all these numbers are added up, they equal 666.
This could be an impressive argument if you followed
how or why God would reveal to John the shocking truths
of the numerical sequence of a man's hat in the year
2008. A similar argument can be given that Judas Iscariot
is the man of 666. The book of Revelation is the 66th
book of the Bible. The book of Revelation is the 27th
book of the New Testament. The identifying passage of

Then and Now
Dear all concerned citizens of
Trenton, FL. This is in response to
last week's Now and Then article by
Carrie Mizell. I could not help being
a little agitated when I read the article
in regards to the skate boarders being
trouble to the City of Trenton. First the
article complained about skateboard-
ers obstructing the sidewalk. Well,
where else do kids have to skateboard
near their home without being in the
middle of the street? Skateboards
do not roll too well on dirt or grass.
Then it was mentioned that they were
shaggy haired, droopy pant-wearing
skateboarders. Now since when has
it been a law that you have to have
a hair cut that was mandatory or in
this country of freedom you are not
allowed to wear your clothes the way
you want to? That would be stereo-
typing and I am sure the majority of
the people in this country are against
that. I believe that would fall under
the same category as being racist or
even sexist. The reason we live in the
greatest country in the world is be-
cause we have freedom to do as we
choose as long as it does not break
the law. This brings me to the next is-
sue, the skateboarders skating on SR
47. Yes, this is breaking the law and
you can get a ticket if you are caught
doing so. Now lets not just pick on
the skateboarders who are breaking
the law but what about the drivers
that are traveling over the speed limit,
we all have done it? Now if you get
caught you get a ticket, but you do
not hear anybody complaining about
the speed limit. You accept the conse-
quences, pay the fine, and slow down.
I feel that it is not safe or smart to
skateboard down a highway and I do
not encourage it but after complain-

the antichrist is the 13th chapter and the 18th verse. 66 +
27 + 13 + 18 = 124. The number 124 identifies the writer
of the book as John. He is one of the 12 disciples and is
named 4th in the order of apostles hence, (12)(4).
Reading John 12:4 identifies the antichrist as Judas
Iscariot: "Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot,
Simon's son, which should betray him." Of course this
has as much truth as why fire trucks are red and the Pope
is the man 666.
The Bible never teaches that Jesus is going to return to
Earth and set up His Kingdom. Paul said he was a member
of the kingdom of Christ. (Colossians 1:13) The supposed
antichristt' is not going to suddenly appear and begin to
set in motion any events leading up to the war between
Satan and Christ. Religious leaders have deceived the
hearts of the simple minded to cause them to believe the
fantasies of religious dogmas based upon the teachings of
men. When Christ returns Paul said everyone will know
it. "For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven,
with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with
the trump of God." (1 Thessalonians 4:16) There is no
such thing as a rapture [has anyone been able to find the
"rapture" in the Bible?]; there is no such thing as the
tribulation that is coming to usher in the millennial reign
of Jesus Christ. These must all stand together or fall
together. If one falls they all fall.
John said we can understand and have wisdom about
the use of the "man" and "666". We can count the
number of the beast and see that attention is given on the
number and its significance and not on a specific man
living today. The doom of the Jewish nation as described
by Jesus in the gospels fits with all that John was showing
in the Revelation: The complete and total failure of all
that man seeks to do is shown in God's final message to
man. Red fire trucks and modern day religious
mathematics used to discover who the man of 666 is share
a common beginning and end.

Something not many people
know about you: I used to be
an actor in a Wild West show. I

Florida Wild West Show from the

and during the summers.

ing about obstructing the sidewalk
and taking away the only place the
kids have to skate what else are they
supposed to do? Now this next quote
made me think of the "the pot call-
ing the kettle black." Ms. Mizell said
that "Up until now she meant them
no physical harm but was wondering
where she could purchase a set of cow
horns to place on here hood." I am
sure this was a comment of sarcasm
but that gives the impression that
she would be no better than them by
causing boldly harm. She was upset
that she was given an obscene jester
by the one kid, but the kids did not
express any shape of physical harm
to her. Sure kids will be kids and I
agree that it all starts with discipline
at home. And that is where society
abroad has the problem. Some par-
ents just are not raising kids the way
they need to be. Not just skateboard-
ers but all youth, which brings up the
next issue profanity at the park. Has
there been a time when you stubbed
your toe or hit you funny bone and
expressed a few obscene comment
yourself? Sure there might be one in
a million who does not, but for the
majority of us you know what I am
talking about. The same comes into
play when a skateboarder does not
land their trick. It gets frustrating and
you express a few unkind words. For
crying out loud has anybody watched
TV or listened to the radio lately?
There are ona~ a few words that they
are not allowed to say and the rest is
in common place and accepted now.
This is something else I do not agree
with but society has changed over
the years and we have to accept and
change with it. On to the last issue
about the City of Trenton helping to
fund the building of a skate park or
in Ms. Mizell words "a play pen for
vandals." Wait a minute! I just saw
on TV recently, on a major network,
About a school Principal in FL that
purchases crack cocaine in his of-
fice on school grounds and was go-
ing to smoke it there in his office.
All caught on tape. Fortunately it was
an undercover sting operation and
they were able to arrest the Principal
before he got a chance to get high.
NOW should we stop putting money
in our public school system because
of one bad Principal, something that
is needed in the community? Think
about it? Problems don't work them-
selves out. We need to consider the
problem and come to a resolution.

Come ride with me, down a road
we've all ridden many, many, times
before. This old road, highway 129
has served county residents well for
years now. Hauling livestock to and
from Trenton to the livestock market
which was once located on the edge
of Trenton. Back in the day there
were a number of turkey farmers in
the area and Trenton actually had
a turkey market. They would ship
those birds, as well as watermelons
and other crops by rail to the north-
eastern markets.
I can just imagine farmers in over-
alls driving their Model T trucks
loaded with cages of turkeys tooling
down old highway 129 hauling their
birds into the market. Pretty much,
the roadway is just the same today as
it was in yesteryear.
As I pull out of Trenton traveling
North I pass by the old Jennings Lake
Seventh Day Adventist Church build-
ing setting back up off the road in a
field. The church was founded around
1911 by some of the early settlers in
the county. Family rumor has it that
my great-great grandmother Polly is
buried in the graveyard next to the
church. One of these days I'm going
to take the time to visit the cemetery
and see.
A little further down the way I pass
a bright green rye grass field filled
with fat black Angus cattle along
about the Floyd's home-place.
As I ride along admiring the beauti-
ful farm land where watermelons will
soon be planted, all the while listen-
ing to Alan Jackson's "Small Town
Country Man" and singing along
just a little, all the while I'm thinking
how much my own roots lie deeply
embedded in the soil and agriculture,
thinking how soon it may disappear.
I pass numerous cars and trucks but
no one waves. How sad that makes
me; when John and I first married
nearly 30 years ago every driver you
passed on 129 would throw up their
hand to wave. Mostly John knew ev-
eryone we passed. He would tell me,
"That's-Mr. so-and-so; he's probably,
headed into town to get a hair cut
from Freddie." Or some other inter-
esting piece of information about the
folks we passed. In those days you
only passed about 5 or 10 cars on
your way to Bell. Now I don't even
want to count the number of cars you
pass between Trenton and Bell.
Once I reach Bell I travel on to my
destination which is Akins Bar-B-Q
to pick up supper. As I enter I am
greeted by many familiar faces of lo-
cal people I've known for years now.
The homey atmosphere of the restau-
rant soothes my soul as nothing but
old friends and familiar surroundings
can do.
Back in the car which is now filled
with the sweet aroma of barbecue I
head south back towards Trenton and
home. Not too far out of town I pass
Jr.'s old homestead. I fondly remem-
ber Jr. and his flock of chickens that
were forevermore in the road in front
of his old cracker house. Not crack-
er "style" house but a real cracker
house which was lived in by several
generations of Philmans. I remember
the beautiful old live oak that once
draped nearly across the road next
to Jr.'s house. We all knew to slow
down when approaching the old oak
so that we wouldn't accidently do-in
one of Jr.'s egg laying hens.
Driving thorough the pink ribbon
of wild phlox along each side of the
highway brings a smile to my face.

Springtime in Gilchrist could surely
not happen without this annual burst
of pink.
Passing by Mr. Tommy and Ms.
Elaine's hay farm brings to mind
how lucky we have been to raise our
children here. J., our son benefited
greatly from working for Mr. Tommy
when he was not yet dry behind the
ears. Mr. Tommy put up with him
when I'm sure he was not a whole lot
of help but as the years progressed he
became proficient at driving a trac-
tor and fluffing hay and a whole lot
of other standard farm jobs. I will
be forever thankful to the Jones' for
helping instill our son with a great
work ethic.
As I follow the old familiar road
into town I realize sadly that highway
129 may not stay the same for much
longer. A month or so back Progres-
sive Farmer "unfortunately" as far as
I concerned named Gilchrist County
asthe fourth best place to live in the
entire southeast. Gilchrist came in
ninth nationally. Of course you and I
know that Gilchrist County is a won-
derful place to live. But I for one
didn't plan on telling the whole world
about life here.
Recently a reader sent us'a piece
from the Fort Pierce News Tribune
which included one paragraph that
was so well written that I could not
help but agree. An editorial writer for
the Fort Pierce News Tribune wrote
regarding the placement of Gilchrist
County on this Progressive Farmer
list, "Now that the bull's eye has
been painted on Gilchrist-the only
Florida county to make the South-
east's top 20-it will be fascinating
to see how county commissioners in
Trenton (pop 1,700) stand up to the
He may very well think that it's
fascinating, I on the other hand don't
think growth is all that wonderful. I
like Highway 129 just as it appears
today and I'm not looking forward to
a I'frh onslaught of people. Frankly,
I'd rather see fat black cows standing
Sbelly deep in rye grass than housing
subdivisions any day.

This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible
Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property

Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances,
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyone in possession of assets on January 1 who has either
a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed
agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who
lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal
property be reported' each year to the Property Appraiser's
office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has
determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the
form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way,
the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your
obligation to file.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible
Personal Property owners. If you do not get one, contact the
SProperty 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. IfI 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:
I) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business and
the manner in which you disposed of your business assets.
Remember if you still have the assets, you must file on them.
2) Sign and date the return.
3) Have your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April I 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 I 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.

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. Alter
April I, 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

Bell, Trenton, Chiefland and Cedar Key track teams at a recent meet at Chiefland High School.

County Track Teams participate in Chiefland meet

Both Bell and Trenton track teams
traveled to Chiefland on March 20 to
participate in an area track meet. Both
schools' track teams did very well at
the meet. Chiefland, Cedar Key, Wil-
liston and Dixie County also partici-
pated in the meet.
Trenton boys won the meet with a
total of 137 points. Williston came in
second with 108 points and Chiefland
placed third with 93 points. Bell and
Cedar Key followed in fourth and
fifth place with 79 points and 71
points respectively.
The Cedar Key Girls won the girls
meet with 139 points. Bell girls placed

Tigers advance in the
by Brandon McElroy
What a week! P.K. Yonge on Mon-
day, Taylor County on Tuesday and'
a district match-up against the Bran-
ford Bucs Thursday. The Tigers knew
that they had a tough row to plow
with these teams all in one week. As
important as it is to win every game,
the District games are the only ones

second with 119 points, Trenton was
third with 86 points. Williston fol-
lowed with 50 points and Chiefland
ran a close fifth with 49 points and
Dixie County girls came in sixth with
47 points.
C. Cross of the Trenton boys
placed first in the High Hurdles with
17.8. Trenton boys won the 4x100
relay with 45:57. Denton Rowicki
Bell boys won the 400. Trenton boys
won the 4x400 relay with a time of
3:57, Kyler Lovelace of Trenton
Boys Team won the Triple Jump with
The Bell Girls Team won the

that matter in the end.
Both Yonge and Taylor County.
schools are not in our district and
have a much larger population of
students/athletes. Knowing this, the
Tigers rolled up at PK Yonge on
Monday ready to play some ball. PK
struck first, in the 1st inning scoring
two runs but the Tigers would have
none of that. They crashed Yonge's
Blue Wave in the 3rd inning scor-
ing five runs and taking the lead,

4x800 with a time of 12:43. The
Trenton Girls won the 4x100 relay
with a time of 56:76, Bell girl team
member Steck won the two mile race
with 17:30, The Bell girls also won
the 4x400 relay with a time of 5:14.
Jessica LaFritz won the shot put with
a distance of 25'5." Aubey Grego-
ry won the long jump with a 14'8"
The next meet that Trenton Track
Teams are scheduled to participate in
will be held on Thursday, March 27
at St. Johns Country Day School in
Orange.Park, Florida.
The' meet will begin at 3:30 in the

5-2. Yonge battled back and tied it
up in the fourth and really started
to take the momentum. This game
came down to one pitch, one swing
and one breath-taking play. In the
bottom of the 6th inning the Tigers
were ahead by one run, but this was
about to change with the blink of an
eye. With two outs, full count on the
batter and the bases loaded, the next
pitch changed the game and took ev-
ery ounce of spirit, emotion and will

Saint Leo University holds regional

meeting in Trenton

On Thursday Saint Leo Univer-
sity held a regional meeting at their
new location in Trenton, adjacent to
the Gilchrist County School Board.
Gilchrist County School Superinten-
dent Buddy Vickers and Assistant
Superintendent Dr.. Jim Surrency
opened the meetings. The meeting

power out of the Tigers. The ball was
hit over the right field fence scoring
four runs which locked the game
away for the Blue Wave. Three more
runs were added to their total that
inning as they scored seven and in-
creased their lead to 12-6. The Tigers
couldn't get anything going in the 7th
leaving PK with a loss, but also with
the confidence that they could win
when they faced them again back at
the Jungle. Karson Gilbert led the
team in batting average with 2-3 at
the plate (.667).
The next game was against the Tay-
lor County Bulldogs.. .and you would
think that the mascot would have got
the Tigers fired up. You know these
guys mean business when they beat
Chiefland 14-2. Taylor County could
hit the ball like no other team that
the Tigers have faced or will face
this season. The Bulldogs had 13 hits
compared to the Tigers four...which
was the main reason why the score
was so lop-sided. On those 13 hits,
the Bulldogs were able to score 15
runs. The Tigers were only able to
find three runs in this game making
the final score 15-3. Chance Brooks
went 2-2 despite the tough opponent
with one of his hits a true double.
Kyle Feather also added his touch'to
the game driving in two runs. All in
all, the Tigers came out flat for this
one and didn't play baseball like they
knew how. However, all is not lost as
the Tigers will travel to Perry in the
near future to seek out revenge and
try to take a win.
Boy oh boy! are the Tigers glad to
have Mr. C.J. Bowers back in the line-
up! After losing that heart breaker to
the Bucs earlier this season, Bowers
came back and was not going to ac-
cept anything less than a win. The
Tigers literally showed up in their
working boots because they knew
they had to get some work done that
night. They couldn't afford another
district loss. The game was extremely
intense as you could see both teams'
passion for the game flowing into ev-
ery motion of who wanted it more.
This game was a nail biter! Both
teams had six hits and both pitchers
pitched amazing games. Andy Jones
had 16 strike outs in eight innings and
Branford's pitcher had 14. The stats

speak for themselves as to how close
the game was, so just imagine being
there in person and witnessing all this
take place! The Bucs struck first and
stayed ahead 1-0 until the 5th inning
when Ryan Schmitz led the rally get-
ting the Tigers pumped with a lead-off
single. Alvarez followed in suit, get-
ting on base and scoring. The Tigers
regained the lead 2-1 and increased
their lead to 3-1 in the 6th only to be
tied in the bottom of the 6th, 3-3. The
7th inning came and passed with no
score and since the game was tied at
three, it called for extra innings. In
the top of the 8th, Billy Owens was
up to bat first. He hit to third base and
as the third baseman bobbled the ball,
Owens' lightening fast speed allowed
him to make it to first base. Owens
stole 2nd base and was finally driven
in by Karson Gilbert and that would
turn out to be the game winning run/

rbi. Andy Jones closed the books
putting away the next three batters
in the line-up to keep the score your
Trenton Tigers 4 and the Branford
Bucs 3. The Tigers were finally able
to pull out a close one because they
believed in themselves and played as
a team. Bower's and Owen's speed
contributed greatly to this big win-
ner for the Tigers. They both are as
fast as lightening and together stole a,
total of four bases on five attempts.
Other honorable mentions are Justin
Alvarez's batting average as he went,
.500 on the night. The Tigers gave
the Bucs their first loss in the District
and moved back into second place in'
league play.
.The Tigers have two District games,
this week and one non-District game
and they hope to take back what be-
longs-to them; the first place standing,
in the District!

BES celebrates National FFA Week

Mrs le Thomas showed the children some of her farm animals.
M u h s rte o h -e i -- aim
Mrs. Julie Thomas showed the children some of her farm animals.

by Kaye Rolling
Imagine seeing a wave of blue and
gold coming off of school buses, a
petting zoo, guest speakers from a
variety of agricultural occupations
and farm equipment ranging from
the use of watermelons, hay, peanuts,
and a sprayer so big you could walk
underneath it. Where would you see
all of this? At the farmers market? At
a county fair? NO, at Bell Elementary
School during National FFA Week.
The week began on Tuesday with
the elementary students showing
their support by wearing the colors of
FFA, National Blue and Corn Gold
Yellow. On WBES news the Jr. presi-
dent, Alec Rolling and Sr. president,
Juliee Nobs came down to speak to
the elementary students about Na-
tional FFA Week, give facts and
speak on the meaning of the colors.
Our contest also began.
Wednesday of that week was the
students most favorite activity, the
petting zoo. The students were asked
to bring in their favorite stuffed farm
animal and then after their wheel
classes they were able to visit and pet
real farm animals. The petting zoo
consisted of rabbits, ducks, chickens,

piglets, a dairy calf, a goat, a horse,
and Grits the cowdog. We would like
to give a big thanks to Mrs. Kathy
Sites, Mrs. Nicole Avery, Mrs. Julie
Thomas, and North Florida Holsteins
for bringing in these farm animals.
Also another big thanks goes to Mrs.
Julie Thomas and Mrs. Sandy Pan-
chysyn for monitoring and giving out
information all day long to make this
very educational to all. After lunch
some of the Jr. and Sr. members
came down to help out. Another big
thanks to Brenden and Mark Sites,
Talon Rolling, Austin Martin, Austin
Bell, Bruce Thomas, Orrie and Olivia
Roberts, Paul Bloom, Quentin Greg-
ory, Trent and Cassie Pridgeon.
Thursday was a dress-up like a
farmer day. Many students came in
jeans, cowboy boots, rubber boots,
flannel shirts, cowboy hats, caps,
John Deere wear, and some had
freckles painted on their cheeks with
bandanas around their necks. Real
Guest speakers came throughout
the week and much was learned about
many agricultural occupations that
go on each day in our county. Our
Pre-K class was visited by Mr. John

Mr. John Rance Thomas visited with students and explained what he
did daily on his farm.

Thomas, a farmer who came in to
share what he does daily on his farm
and even took a video and shared that
also. First grade had a Game and Fish
Officer, Mr. Travis Cooper. Along
with him speaking to the students he
also brought in his airboat.
Second graders were given infor-
mation about how important it is to
conserve and protect some of our
most important natural resources by
Mr. Hugh Thomas from the Water
and Soil Conservation Office.
The third graders were entertained
by real cowboys, Mr. Johnny Taylor
and Dr. Bruce Thomas, along with
Mrs. Julie Thomas. The students were
instructed about what equipment was
needed to herd cows, the importance
of a whip and when to use it. The stu-
dents enjoyed the loud pops.
Our fourth graders enjoyed asking
questions and getting a lot of infor-
mation about animals and her job as
a vet from Mrs. Valerie who works
at Dr. Yoho's veterinarian office in
At last our fifth graders were edu-
cated and being recruited about FFA

-Heart Matters

"If I am a Christian, instead of
learning how to solve relationship
problems, can't I just pray that
nothing bad happens?"
Not surprisingly, this question
was asked by a young person. I
say this because any of us who
have lived more than a few years
already know the answer, yet we
may still struggle to understand
the reason. The Bible records the
words of Jesus on this matter in
John 16:33, "...in this world, you
will have trouble." No question
about it and no getting around it...
the trouble is here. In the original
Greek language of the New Tes-
tament, this word trouble means
"pressure." Daily we face the pres-
sure to measure up to the world's
standards, pressure to achieve and
accomplish and succeed. We also
deal with pressure within our rela-
tionships.. .the pressure of wanting
our own way, of living up to an-
other's expectations, and the pres-
sure of getting our own needs met.
These are real issues that we face
in real relationships. James 1:2-4
speaks of this struggle from a new
"Consider it pure joy, my broth-
ers, whenever you face trials of
many kinds, because you know
that the testing of your faith de-
velops perseverance. Perseverance
must finish its work so that you
may be mature and complete, not

lacking anything."
According to these verses, our
struggles are actually opportunities
for us to mature, for our charac-
ter to be shaped and for us to be
transformed into the person that
God intended us to be. Persever-
ance means to be steadfast, and in
the New Testament it represents
the characteristic of a man who is
not swerved from his deliberate
purpose and his loyalty to faith by
even the greatest trials and suffer-
ings. This deliberate purpose in
our lives and in our relationships
is to honor God. We do this best
by being the proof that doing life
His way works! When the pres-
sure is great to be selfish, we can
choose to give; when the pressure
is great to fight for our own way,
we can choose what is best for the
relationship...these are the tests
that develop steadfastness. Rarely
does God call us to passively.sit
by while He works in our life, but
rather He gives us opportunities to
participate with Him in the work
He is doing.
In answer to the original ques-
tion, of course we can pray that
bad things won't happen, and
sometimes God will answer "yes,"
but when we see how God uses the
struggles in our lives, we can better
understand why He allows them...
and it's because our hearts matter!
Blessings, Angle

Joyfufifeart Quilters


This quilt was brought in for us to see. The piecing was outstanding;
the colors all blended but we didn't get the lady's name.

Myrle Gilke and Diana Lynn are our February birthday ladies...many,
many, more.

Lu Rowland shows offer Swedish weaving that won first place at the
State Fair in Tampa.

Wednesday, March 19th was a glo-
rious spring day that just made your
heart sing at the sight of redbuds,
dogwoods, wisteria, azaleas and that
everloving phlox and oh yes, bridal
wreaths and on and on. We are so
blessed to live where we can witness

first hand the resurrection of life after
the long dead winter. And so it was;
when seventeen Joyful Hearts met to
quilt, crochet, knit, Swedish weave
and welcome the coming of spring.
Our new club quilt is ready to go

ready finished their rooster block for
the up-coming club quilt. The rooster
should be great fun.
The lovely lavender "Joyful
Hearts" quilt was raffled off and was
won by Ann Mangone, who declined.
The new winner was Mary Lou
Rudge and she said she plans on giv-
ing it to her daughter. It was decided
that the "Bunny" quilt that Elaine
Nemeth made would be a gift to Lera
Townsend. Lera is atAyers recovering
from a fall. She broke her hip about
three weeks ago and is doing nicely.
She appreciates your visits, cards,
thoughts and prayers. Paulene Martin
is also at Ayers and is doing better.
She loves to have visitors and cards.
We need to keep her in our prayers as
well. Pat Luka fell off a ladder and
thank the Lord did not break any-
thing but she is black and blue from
head to foot but still up and quilting
up a storm. Jackie Moore is sick with
the flu and Lu Rowland is still nurs-
ing that bad back. So as you can see
we have lots of praying to do.
This meeting was our Spring Fling
party and party we did. There were
three long tables filled with delicious,
delectable, delightful salads, sand-
wiches, dips, fruits, deviled eggs,
desserts and so much more. We ate
until we could eat no more.
The big surprise, at least for me,
was that just as we began to eat,
Elaine announced that she had a pre-
sentation to make and she walked
over to dumb-founded me and handed
me a ladtge; ptetty'gift bag 'Inside was
a-b1eautiful, no, exquisiteLbwould bet-'
ter describe it, quilt made especially
for me by Ann Mangone. I cried, Ann
cried, Elaine cried. It was so perfect-
ly me...and crazy quilt center, fussy,
fanciful and all in lavenders.
There have been several quilts that
I've really wanted to win but haven't.
Ann embodied elements of all those
quilts in this one. Tiny high-top
shoes, a purse, a hat, spider webs and
hearts galore.
It is so me. It is as if she had peeked
into my soul. They say that a thing of
beauty is a joy forever. Believe me
this will be a joy forever. Ann does
such beautiful work and is so cre-
ative and I am so blessed to have her
as a friend and one who would put
so much time, effort and love in such
a gift.
After that I could hardly eat, if you
can believe that. We will meet again
on Wednesday, the 26th and then
on April 2nd. We have been talking

about just meeting every Wednesday
to make it less confusing, since we all
have those senior comments or days,
as the case may be.
About seven or eight members went
to the antique quilt festival in Trenton
and brought back rave reviews. I'm
sure they will have it again next year
so we should try to get together for a
"road trip."
'Til next time, find something each
day for which to be thankful and then
give thanks to Him from whom hll
blessings flow.

Dear Gilchrist County Fair Booster,

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

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

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

S___THS Quarterback Club's Golf Scramble fundraiser

By Carrie A. Mizell
Whether you swing the club and
play each course as if it were the
Masters like golf titan Tiger Woods,
or favor watching football from the
comfort of the family couch, the
Trenton High School Quarterback
Club wants you to play in its 9th an-
nual Golf Scramble on Saturday to
raise funds for the 2008 fighting Ti-
gers football team.
According to Bill Deen, president
of the Trenton High School Quarter-
back Club, 45 to 60 players are ex-
pected to take part in the annual golf
scramble which will be held at Chief-
land Golf and Country Club.

Registration will
begin at 8 a.m. fol-
lowed by a shotgun
start at 8:30 a.m. En-
try cost for the three-
man scramble is $50 ?i
per player or $150 per
team which includes
18 holes of golf and
lunch after the game.
Cash prizes will be
awarded for low net
and gross divisions. According to
Deen, maximum handicap is 25 and
the average handicap of team mem-
bers multiplied by 80 percent will be
used when calculating net scores.

In 2007, the Quar-
terback Club's Golf
Scramble raised
$3,000 for the foot-
ball program. This
year, Quarterback
Club members hope
the golf scramble will
exceed last year's
Earnings. As the high
school sport that
draws the most rev-
enue each year, the football program
often has to act as a big brother to the
other sports, Deen said.
"The athletic budget doesn't cover
all the needs," Deen said. "The foot-

ball program's needs don't get met by
the budget."
Therefore, it is the responsibility of
the Trenton High School Quarterback
Club to raise $15,000 to $20,000 each
year to fund equipment needs, busing
to distant away games and pre-game
SAccording to Deen, Trenton High
School's new football coach Chris
Baker will play in the golf scramble.
"He [Coach Baker] is young and
very enthusiastic," Deen said. "We
think the kids will relate well with
him," Deen said.
For more information, call Bill
Deen at (352) 463-1313.

Trenton High School seniors Jamie Pope and Jeni Boland were crowned
Prom King and Queen on Friday night. The junior class hosted the

"During the busy times, March material plant will be mulching cy-
through May, 24 hours a day or as press, pine and other types of wood
long as it takes; the remaining time of for mulch,"Johnson said.


Johnson was asked if the plant
would be coloring the mulch for land-
scapes and he explained the red and
black dyes are non-toxic sprays that
are commonly used on playgrounds
and flower beds. "These dyes are not
regulated by the Environmental Pro-
tection Agency," Johnson explained.
Theron Hudson, a resident of
Waters Lake community, asked the
board if the applicant would be re-
quired to post a Material Safety
Data sheet listing the chemicals that
he stored on the premises. Gilchrist
County Administrator Ron McQueen
told the board that the North Central
Florida Regional Planning Council
is involved with Gilchrist County
and other agencies to identify both
large and small users of regulated
chemicals. If this business purchases
chemicals for use, Gilchrist County
will be notified and the business will
be checked depending on the quan-
tity that is kept on the property, Mc-
Queen told the board. Steve Gladden,
a Gilchrist County resident, told the
Planning Commission of the different
types of chemicals, both herbicides
and insecticides that are commonly
used in mulch. He explained to the
board that the chemicals are allowed
but the storage of the quantities on the

site are limited by the actual strength
of each chemical. Stacey Hoyt asked
the board if there had been any type
of study performed on the proposed
site involving the impacts that the
new industrial site would have on
the neighboring property owners.
Brown explained that impact studies
are done when zoning changes are
requested involving a site use. This
particular piece of property was al-
ready zoned Industrial, and the only
resident that would be impacted by
the mulch plant was the owner that
has a house on the property near by.
Residents explained that the in-
creased truck traffic on CR-313
would cause traffic problems in the
rural areas. Gilchrist County attorney
John McPherson told the board that
the county could restrict the trucks
from turning north onto CR-313. He
explained that a sign could be re-
quired to be erected by the applicant
or the county could restrict the road
by weight limits. The Florida De-
partment of Transportation enforces
weight limits on commercial traf-
fic. Johnson explained that he would
place a sign at the exit of the property
to have the truck traffic turn right and
travel back to SR-26 to reduce traffic

1424 North Young Blvd., Chiefland

LuAnn Young told the board that
she drives a school bus and traffic on
SR 26 is bad now. She felt like the
increased traffic would cause addi-
tional congestion problems on SR 26.
Brown told the board that SR 26 west
of Trenton has the capacity for avail-
able remaining trips on this road. He
felt there would not be a congestion
Virgil Rush told the board that he
moved to Gilchrist County in 2003 to
enjoy the country life. He was not in
favor of a mulch plant at CR-232 and
James Johnson told the board that
he intends to purchase forestry prod-
ucts from a 35-mile radius within this
facility. Trucks will be transporting
the trees to the mill along CR-313
and other county roads leading to this
facility. Johnson told the board that
a majority of the trucks transporting
products from this plant will travel
along SR 26 to 1-75. Van Hagan, a
property owner and resident on CR-
313 north told the board that the in-
creased traffic on this narrow road
could be enforced by weight limits.
"I feel that turn lanes should be
constructed on SR-26 to turn onto
CR-313 for the increased traffic not
at the. taxpayer's expense," Hagan
A motion made by Craig Watson
and a second by Roosevelt Stalvey to
approve SUP 08-05 with the condi-
tions that there be no in-ground fuel
stored on site, site plan approval re-
quired pursuant to 12.02 of the land
development code, that ingress and
egress shall be off of CR-313 and
SR-26, and that the applicant will

have 2 years with a 1 year extension
upon request to commence constiuc-
tion. Motion carried 5-0.
Johnson stood before the board
and withdrew SUP-08-03 from the
"According to the Gilchrist County
Code you can't withdraw the appli-
cation from the agenda, once it has
been noticed, it can't be withdrawn
from the board's agenda," McPher-
son explained.
"I am James Johnson and I will not
request a denial of SUP 08-03 be-
cause I feel this too is a good site,"
Johnson explained.
Board member Michelle Crawford
made a motion to deny SUP 08-03
and Craig Watson gave a second to
the motion. Chairman Alan Mikell
called for a vote and the board ap-
proved the motion 5-0.
Theron Hudson addressed the
board with the intention of giving
a presentation involving chemicals
that are used in the mulch industry.
The chairman recognized a motion to
adjourn the meeting and action was
taken to close. Joe Young, a resident
of Gilchrist County told the board
members that he felt the board should
listen to each and every person that
wanted to speak involving SUP 08-
"All of these people have come
here tonight to talk to the board and I
think the board should listen to each
and everyone of them," Young ex-
The board members and individu-
als interested in the presentation
stayed after the meeting to listen to

effective elected official and waiting
for a time when I thought real change
was needed. That time is now.
In this brief announcement, I will
outline reasons why you should con-
sider me for the position of Property
The first reason is that I worked in
the Property Appraiser's office from
1987 to 1995, and I know, first-hand,
what is required for an effectively run
office. I held the following positions:
Field Appraiser, Tangible Personal
Property, Agricultural and Timber-
land Classification, data entry and
customer service. During my tenure,
I attended several appraisal courses
through the International Association
of Assessing Officers and was award-
ed successful completion status of all

(Continued from page 1)
As I begin this campaign I want
to thank all the men and women of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
for their dedication, commitment and
willingness to serve the citizens of
Gilchrist County everyday and espe-
cially in moments of special need. It
is truly a pleasure to work with such
a skilled group of individuals. The
members of the Sheriff's Office strive
to provide the best possible service
and safety with your hard earned tax
In preparing for this campaign I
have found a common concern of
many Gilchrist County Citizens is
illegal drugs. Illegal drugs are pos-
sibly the most serious issue any Law
Enforcement agency can address.
Nearly all crimes that occur, from
petty theft to murder, have some cor-
relation between the illegal act and
the need to finance drugs. I can assure
you as your Sheriff it will become a
priority of the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office to become better trained
and more proactive in our actions to
prevent the sale and trafficking of il-
legal drugs in Gilchrist County.
This is just one major issue I plan
to address if elected your Sheriff. I
plan to run a strong, clean campaign
that emphasizes my experience and
strengths. I look forward to meeting
with the citizens to listen to your sug-
gestions and share my ideas. I will
also be available by phone and email

courses. An important item to note,
I also iave experience with the De-
partment of Revenue Audit process.
As your Property Appraiser, I would
"hit the ground running."
The second reason you should con-
sider me is that I possess the lead,
ership skills necessary to be your
Property Appraiser. In every job, I
have advanced in job responsibility
because of my work ethic and leader-
ship abilities.
The Property Appraiser needs to
be a leader that will do the follow-
ing: ensure a knowledgeable, courte-
ous and professional service for all
citizens; improve internal relations in
the office and with other departments;
promote a public-servant attitude;
carefully listen to citizens' concerns
and issues; offer compassion and
understanding on each and every is-
sue; stand up to Tallahassee and fight
against unfair rules and regulations;
and, above all, be accountable to you,
the citizens of Levy County. I will be
that leader.
The third reason you should con-
sider me for your Property Appraiser
is that I vow to you to be as conserva-
tive and judicious with your tax dol-
lars as possible. Being self-employed
for 9 years, I have a greater appre-
ciation for those among us who make
their own way. I know what it's like
to live from paycheck to paycheck
and need every spare cent. The mon-
ey we all pay in taxes should not be
used frivolously and spent carelessly.
As your Property Appraiser, I will
work to lower administrative costs in
the appraisers' office and to promote
fiscal responsibility in County gov-
Finally, I care deeply about the
people of Levy County. It is a great
place to live, and we should all be
working to keep it a great place to
live for future generations. I am mar-
ried to the former Lori Arrington and
have two children, Lauren, 18, and
Zach, 9. I am an active member of
First Baptist Church of Chiefland,
and will use my faith and beliefs to
bring Godly leadership to County
government at all times, not just dur-
ing election year. Like you, I have a
vested interest in what happens in our
County government, and I will work
hard to earn your support, trust and
Over the course of the next few
months, I look forward to meeting
you and discussing the future of your
Property Appraiser's office. Please
feel free to call me at home at 493-
1394, or on my cell phone at 949-
1394. You can also visit my Web site
at www.voteforoz.net to learn more
about my occupational history, faith
statement and answers to the ques-
tion, "Why Oz?" I look forward to
hearing from you, and together we
can make a positive difference in
Levy County.
