Body found on Tyler Grade identified as Trenton man

By Carrie A. Mizell
Foul play is suspected in the death
of a 38-year-old Trenton man whose
body was discovered last Wednesday
morning in a wooded area off Tyler
Grade, three miles east of Trenton.
According to Captain Tony Cruse
of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice, the decomposing body of Willie
James Ellison was found by a citizen
around 9 a.m. on'June 4.
Ellison had reportedly been shot
several times in the head.

Investigators from the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office along with
coroners from the medical exam-
iner's office responded to the call
and recovered the body in a heavily
wooded area along Tyler Grade.
"The investigation is currently on-
going," Cruse said. "An autopsy was
done on Thursday, but the results will
take a while to come in."
To residents living on Tyler Grade
who may now have safety concerns,
Sheriff David Turner said on Tues-

day afternoon that this incident is be-
lieved to be isolated.
Turner also said Ellison's death is
possibly a retaliation involving drug
"We are looking at several leads,"
Turner said. "Two of those leads are
regarding two persons of interest in
Columbia County."
According to Turner, investigators
from the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office, with assistance from Colum-
bia County Sheriff's deputies inter-

viewed two suspects on Friday.
Subsequently Julio Cesar Gomez,
41, of Ft., White was arrested and
charged with trafficking, cocaine and
possession of drug paraphernalia.
Gomez 'was booked into the Co-
lumbia County Jail and was released
on $60,000 bond.
James Pope, 22, of Ft. White was
also arrested on a Levy County war-
rant for a charge of aggravated bat-
Pope was booked into the Colum-

bia County Jail where he was being
held at press time.
According to Turner, Pope was al-
legedly involved in cutting a man on
US 19 in Levy County.
"This activity has gone on in a
multi-county area and it has to do
with drugs," Turner said.
Anyone with information on this
incident is asked to call the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office immediately
at 463-3181 or toll free at 1-800-701-

Age was not an issue for a 5-
year-old Gainesville boy who took
top honors at the Suwannee River

Gold Hook Awards Kids Fishing
Tournament on Saturday.
Gainesville's Owen Heron was
among 30 children from throughout
the tri-county area who took to the
waters of the Suwannee River on
Saturday morning with a goody bag
of snacks in tow. Under the supervi-
sion of a mom, dad, uncle, grand-
parent or just a close friend each
child had the opportunity to bait a
hook and cast a line in an effort to
raise monies for the Shriners Hospi-
tals for Children.
Bobby Heath, vice president and
treasurer of the Suwannee River
Shrine Club, did not have a total
amount raised available at press
,time, but he did say that the 2008
tournament marked the first year
nearly every trophy has been award-
ed to one child.
Much to the delight of his father
Chris, Owen took home a partic-
ipant's trophy as well as trophies
for the Biggest Trash Fish, Biggest
Bass and Total Boat Weight. Austin
Brannin, 14, of Dixie County won a
trophy for Biggest Brim and Duktin
Drawdy, 9, also of Dixie County
was the lucky winner of a new troll-

According to Heath, every child
was given a rod and reel, cap, bag
of goodies, free hot dog and a drink
for participating in the annual fish-
ing tournament.

teams to the state poultry judging
competition on Monday, June 9 at the
University of Florida. Two very hap-

senior team was made up of three
members Cassie Pridgeon, Krystina
Thompson and Brittany McDaniel.
Cassie Pridgeon of Gator Country

On Saturday, June 7 at around 3:00
p.m., a woods fire was reported in
the southeast sector of the, county be-

Gilchrist Club property. This fire was
suspected to have begun by lightning
in a thick dry woods area. This fire
raged out of control to over 100 acres

was called in to make water drops
on the raging flames. Chief Perez

reported that Florida Forestry sent 7

brush trucks dispatched to the area
with volunteers from throughout Gil-

WGFL Analog
Channel 53 signs off
The FCC has authorized the early
shut off of WGFL's analog transmit-
ter channel 53 on July 18, 2008. The
early sign off is required in order to
accommodate the build out of a new
Gainesville television station, chan-
nel 9. The new station will be located
in the same transmitter building and
on the same tower as WGFL's digi-
tal channel 28 and analog channel
53. Since there is no feasible way for
the new station to complete its man-
datory build out and be on the air by
September 8th while channel 53 is
operating, the FCC has allowed the
early sign off.
After channel 53 signs off, the
only way over-the-air antenna view-
ers will be able to receive the CBS
signal will be on digital channel 28.
Antenna viewers will need either a
television with a digital tuner, or a
digital converter box. The govern-
ment is issuing coupons worth $40
towards a converter box by going to
www.DTV2009.gov or by calling 1-
- 888-DTV-2009.
Todd Senter, general manager of
WGFL-WMYG stated: "While it is
of utmost importance that our view-
ers continue to receive their CBS sig-
nal, we believe once they make the
switch to digital and see that the qual-
ity of the signals is far superior to the
analog plus the fact that they'll also
receive more stations on digital than
on analog, the viewers will ultimately
be very pleased with the change."
This change will not affect any
cable customers or Dish Network
customers who subscribe to the local
Gainesville channel package; only
those that view via an antenna. Nor
does it affect any other analog signals
in the Gainesville market. At this time
the rest of the Gainesville stations are
due to sign off their analog channels
on February 17, 2009.

done a great job fighting these fires

John's Comments
By: John M. Ayers

Hot humid days of summer
During the hot humid days of sum-
mer, fishing is at its best very early
before the sun warms up the day and
the water. The late afternoon when
the sun begins to set and on into the
evening is also a good time to get out
on the water as well.
This time of year 1 enjoy making
my way out to the shallow flats to
wade and get in on some excitement
from trout, redfish, and a lot of other
species that run these areas on build-
ing and falling tides.
It is simply amazing the species of
fish that will follow bait fish up into
these grassy areas when the water is
deep enough for them to swim.
On a recent trip aboard an airboat
with a group of friends, I enjoyed
the evening ride and seeing the many

different species that had 'made their
way up onto the flats.
That evening this group was hoping
to find some clean water in hopes of
gigging some mullet. We began our
trip north of McGriff Channel and
finally slowed down as we reached
the lights of Horseshoe Beach to the
Northwest. We found an abundance
of sheepshead and mullet, but the
mullet were too small to keep. Sever-
al times as the boat would go up close
to a grassy shallow, a small mullet
would jump into the air and land on
the deck of the boat. Several of these
fish made their way right back over
the side, back into the water.
This was enjoyable and I look for-
ward to the next opportunity. If you
have the time, get out on the water
and enjoy fishing with a friend and
family members.

We live in a day that is full of extravagance. The norm
of society is to express itself in loud indulgences of
outward show that draw attention to self. Bodies are
tattooed, pierced, painted, shaven and abused to give a
picture to the world of self gratification and garish
expressions of self identity. Music must be loud and
indiscernible; life must be fast and furious; parties are
filled with the glory of the excess of debauchery.
Concerts become events of physical, mental and ear
splitting droning of filthy language and thoughts craving
to the chanting of an obscene pattern of licentious
In Paul's description of the works of the flesh he
attributes the character of drunkenness with the results of
wild parties, reveling or carousing. The deed of the flesh
is characteristic of "noisy and [defiant] mirth, the scenes
of disorder and sensuality" (Albert Barnes). This deed of
the flesh is connected with obscene music and sensual
movements of the body. The Christian is not to be found
in these dens of sinful activity.
Paul affirms those who practice such things will not
inherit the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21). The apostle
also reminded the brethren in Rome to "behave properly
as in the day, not in carousing and drunkenness, not in
sexual promiscuity and sensuality, not in strife and
jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no
provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts" (Romans
13:13-14). This lifestyle was common among those who
worshiped pagan gods and enjoyed the fruits of
sensuality. Today we are more sophisticated in our desires
and we find these kinds of things in our music, parties

these kids. Mr. Kinsey wanted par-
ents to work in shifts to supervise the
skaters. We are talking about 13 to
16-year-old boys, they don't need to
be babysat.
The sad thing is a lot of these boys
don'teven care anymore. They can't
wait to get their drivers license and
be able to drive to another town and
skate. A lot of these boys can't wait to
get out of school and out of Trenton.
Who could blame them? What is here
for them?
The city park is a quiet and de-
pressing place. Its is the most unin-
viting park I have seen. I have a six-
year-old daughter and when we go to
the park we go to Bell. The park in
Bell is a fun and inviting place for the
kids to go and people actually utilize
this park.
I want to thank Commissioners
Randy Rutter and Marcia Hellams
for voting to put the skate park back
for the kids, with one commission-
er out, I wonder if this vote should
have been tabled. Mayor Thigpen
and Commissioner Tim Kinsey have
been against the skate-boarders from
the beginning. They obviously don't
want the city park being utilized by
teenagers. Well the good ole boys
won again.
Thank you,

Pre-K program gives
kids a head start on
life and education
I would like to encourage moms,
dads, and grandparents alike to read
I have seven children, my last one
just turned four and she is now an
outgoing little girl. But at the end of
last year (age 3) I decided to try her at
school in Pre-K. I took her to be test-
ed and she just cried. She was quiet
and shy. I really hadn't tried teaching
her anything, she's the baby, she'll
learn, I thought. But for six weeks
into school she cried. Well that's
not true now, she's learned so much,
she knows all her ABCs, sounds and
numbers, and learned in a fun and
wonderful environment. She is social
and very outgoing.
From a parents points of view you
think that a three year old is too young
to go to school. They will shove all
. this stuff down their throats and they
already have to go to school for 13
years. Well, my little girl has a head
start and she loves school and has

Much of the music today (rap, country music, modern,
rock, etc.) use lyrics that are obscene, immoral and
decadent. Music' videos portray sexual annotations of
highly suggestive movements to arouse the mind and eye
of the lustful heart. Often our children are invited to
parties where drinking, drugs and sexual gratification are
exploited. Adults join in with events that highlight the
sensual desires of the flesh. The filth of the sensual .mind
has permeated the television for years and reaches a new
low this fall when a show begins called "Swingtown" -
exploiting the notion of couples who engage in sexual
Children of God must keep themselves pure in mind,
body and soul. The impact of an ungodly world is
becoming more prevalent in every facet of the media and
among families. The apostle Peter exhorted the brethren to
"live the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the
lusts of men, but for the will of God. For the time
already past is sufficient for you to have carried out the
desire of the Gentiles, having pursued a course of
sensuality, lusts, drunkenness, carousing, drinking
parties and abominable idolatries. In all this, they are
surprised that you do not run with them into the same
excesses of dissipation, and they malign you; but they
will give account to Him who is ready to judge the living
and the dead" (1 Peter 4:2-5).
Living for the will of God one must deny these
allurements and recognize the impact they can have upon
the family. Heed the warning of the Lord: "they will give
account to Him who is ready to judge the living and the

Yes, I know the financial markets
have been trying of late. Nonetheless,
if you can invest in companies with
excellent track records, using a
discount brokerage house where
you pay a one-time commission per
trade of less than $10, and hold those
investments undisturbed for a year or
more and chalk up annual returns in
excess of what the major indexes do,
why do so many of you want to make
this investing thing so difficult?
Notice that I said nothing about
trading stocks, or buying mutual
funds, or receiving "help" from
your friendly stock broker, or tips
from Uncle Joe. You simply pick
out companies that you know and
understand, that have a track record
of earnings and whose future you,
yourself, can foresee.

"When one has tasted watermelon
he knows what the angels eat"
Mark Twain
Our family has sure been enjoying
some wonderful watermelons this
spring. Our daughter-in-law Lyndsay
has dropped by several melons grown
by her father and brother, Johnny and
John Parrish. Man, they have been so
sweet and good almost every night
John and I have been eating a big ol'
slice of melon. There is nothing quite
like spring and summer in the South.
Many people only think of heat and
humidity when they think of summer
here. But not me, I think of sweet
juicy watermelon, fresh acre peas, a
dish pan brimming with boiled pea-
nuts and a tall glass of ice cold sweet
My, my it is a fine season to be liv-
ing in the South.
A friend of mine sent me this cute
little story and I though y'all might
enjoy it.

One Sunday morning, the pastor,
noticed little Alex standing in the foy-
er of the church staring up at a large
plaque. It was covered with names
and small American flags mounted
on either side of it.
The six-year-old had been staring

Understand that the emphasis is on
you, not what someone else says might
or might not happen. You want to train
yourself to stay focused on finding
companies that are outgnnnirig their
competition because they are hard at
work at improving their positions in
the marketplace.
Does that mean that every company
you select is going to turn in an
outstanding performance, year after
year? No, of course not, especially
if you only take into consideration
a single one-year period. However,
if you are careful in your selection
you are likely to outperform the vast
majority of all mutual funds and the
major indexes during any 3-to-5 year
period. 'That; conclusion' i, based, 'n
more than four decades (Ouch!) of
Wall Street experience.
So by now you are probably asking
yourself why I don't provide you with
an example of just such a company.
Great idea and I cannot think of a
better example than Kellogg.
To start with, Kellogg has achieved
a distinguished level of honesty
and ethical behavior, a real treat
these days. In recognition of that,
Ethisphere recently named Kellogg
to its Most Ethical Companies list.
"Kellogg has developed impressive
and meaningful ethical business
practices, making them true standouts
within their industry," said Alexander
Brigham, executive director of
Ethisphere Institute, a think tank
dedicated to the subject.
Meanwhile, food is an excellent
example of a sector with total
inelasticity. That means there is
no substitute product should food
prices rise. You still have to eat.
Furthermore, while you may cut back
on the quantity purchased, if you
have been an on-going consumer of
Kellogg's products then it is highly
probable that you will continue in
that vein despite price increases.
All of which is a long winded way

at the plaque for some time, so the
pastor walked up, stood beside the
little boy, and said quietly, "Good
morning Alex."
"Good morning Pastor," he replied,
still focused on the plaque.
"Pastor, what is this?"
The pastor said, "Well son, it's a
memorial to all the young men and
women who died in the service."
Soberly, they just stood together,
staring at the large plaque.'
Finally, little Alex's voice, bare-
ly audible and trembling with fear
asked, "Which service, the 8:30 or
the 10:45?"

2 3-ounce packages cherry Jello
1 16-ounce can cherries
S(Bing, dark red or sweet)
1 can crushed pineapple
2 3-ounce package cream cheese, cut
into cubes
12 ounce Coca-cola
2 cups pecans, broken
Heat juice from cherries and pine-
apple to dissolve Jello. When cool,
add Coca-cola. Allow to congeal
slightly and then add broken nuts,
cream cheese, cherries and pineap-
ples. Pour into glass dish and chill
until firm.

of saying that Kellogg is a relatively
recession proof company.
For the first quarter of this year,
Kellogg reported net earnings of
$0.81 per share as compared to last
year's $0.80 per share. However, the
2007 results included a tax benefit
resulting in an effective tax rate of 24
percent as compared to this quarter's
30 percent. Revenue growth for the
quarter was 10 percent, but you need
to realize that the weak dollar was a
major contributor.
At the same time, operating
earnings for the first quarter increased
9.2 percent. Although the company
exceeded a Street consensus of $0.76
per share and increased its dividend
10 percent, the share price remained
downtrodden. Part of the reason
for the moribund share price is that
Kellogg reiterated its prior guidance
for the year of $2.92 to $2.97 per
share and the Street wanted an
increase. Yet, Kellogg is known for
being extremely conservative in its
Looking at the intrinsic value of
the shares, a discounted earnings
approach yields a value of $61 per
share, while the free cash flow to
the firm model produces an intrinsic
value of $66 per share. Both models
are using an earnings growth rate of
9.5 percent.
My earnings estimate for 2008 is
$3.00 per share and $3.35 for 2009,
with a 12 month price target on the
shares of $57. The result is a gain
of 11 percent over the recent, price
of $51.36. In addition, there is a 2.4
percent dividend yield.

This 10-foot alligator surprised the John Rance Thomas family on
May 27 when he crawled his way into their pasture near their home
in north Gilchrist County. Mr. Thomas explained that his dogs be-
gan to bark in the field but he thought they were barking at a coyote
or a deer in the field, he never thought it would be an alligator. The
Thomas' live an estimated 1.5 miles from the Santa Fe River and
further from the flatwoods. Thomas contacted the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission to come and take care of the al-
ligator. FWC contacted a nuisance alligator trapper that came and
dealt with the animal. The alligator was first thought to be able to
be relocated to another area, but due to his size and being a problem
to handle, the gator was taken by the licensed trapper.

Reports of salmonella

prompts local recall

By Carrie A. Mizell
A bacon, lettuce and tomato sand-
wich may be on the tip of your
tongue, but good luck finding a juicy,
red tomato in a grocery store or on a
restaurant menu these days.
Local grocery stores and restaurants
have stopped offering tomatoes per a
recommendation by the U.S. Food
and Drug Administration after a sal-
monella food poisoning outbreak in
16 states was reported in 145 people,
23 of whom had to be hospitalized.
According to the FDA, question-
able tomatoes include red Roma, red
plum and red round tomatoes. So far
most of the cases of salmonella were
reported in Arizona, California, Col-
orado, Connecticut, Idaho, Illinois,
Indiana, Kansas, New Mexico, Okla-
homa, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Virginia,
Washington and Wisconsin. ,
At press time no cases of the out-
break had been reported in Florida,
though Florida had not been ruled out
by the FDA as a possible source of
Hitchock's Foodway in Trenton
pulled plum, roma, cherry and round
tomatoes from the produce depart-
ment on Monday morning after-re-.
ceiving notice oql the recall via fax.
Bell residents- can still purchase
tomatoes at Scaff's Supermarket, ac-
cording to the produce manager who
explained that all tomatoes offered
at the grocery store are shipped from
south Florida therefore store officials
are not concerned that the tomatoes
may be contaminated.

This year 4-H celebrates 100
years in Florida. Many years ago
the paper featured a 4-H member
of the week, so this summer we
are bringing back this feature. Our
first 4-H Club Member of the Week
is Miranda Madlem.
Miranda is 12 years old and a
member of the Jolly Ranchers 4-H
Club. Miranda recently won 1st
place in the Gilchrist County 4-H
Vegetable Garden Project. Mi-
randa won because she did an out-
standing job nurturing her garden,
her vegetables were beautiful, and
she did a terrific job on her garden
record book.
Miranda has been in 4-H for
two years, and says that although
she absolutely loves all her ani-
mal projects, her favorite project
is probably the vegetable garden.
Miranda loves to have fun, can be
shy at times but she's mostly out-
going. She loves being in 4-H be-
cause it gives her a chance to try
new things, work with animals,
and meet new people.

Besides her 4-H work, Miranda I
is very involved in Riverside Bap-
tist Church. Miranda will be going I
to 4-H Camp Cherry Lake at the
end of the month, and is staying
busy this summer with her milk
goats, her bottle calves she's rais-
ing, her chicken project, and might I
even do a 4-H marine project.
Congratulations, Miranda! 4-H

Trenton Elementary will miss a

treat principal

Mrs. Ledvina

Trenton Elementary School
celebrated 13 years of wonder-
ful leadership by a dedicated and
hard-working principal, Friday,
June 5. The teachers and staff
secretly plotted and planned a
wonderful, festive luncheon to
show Mrs. Ledvina the appre-
ciation they have for all that she
has done for Trenton Elementary
School. As part of the celebra-
tion, Kimberly Hines read a heart-
warming letter that captured the
feelings of the entire staff. In ad-
dition, a PowerPoint presentation
encapsulated the dedication and
joy this lady gained from her job.
The staff succeeded in surprising
Mrs. Ledvina. As she entered
the room, she was speechless and
brought to tears.
Mrs. Ledvina has been a great

National FFA
The National FFA Organization
awarded a $1,000 Ford Trucks/Built
Ford Tough FFA Program Schol-
arship to Brett Crawford of Trenton
High School Senior FFA. White Ford
Company, as a special project of the
National FFA Foundation, sponsors
the scholarship. Brett plans to rise the
funds to pursue a degree at Lake City
Community College.
This scholarship is one of the 1.641
awarded through the National FFA
Scholarship Program this year. Cur-
rently, 133 corporate sponsors gener-
ously contribute more than $2.2 mil-
lion to support this program. This is
Ihe 24-h year that scholarships have
been made available through the
National FFA Foundation by busi-

leader to Trenton Elementary
School. She led by doing and
expecting all to get the job done.
She never wavered in her faith in
her employees at Trenton Elemen-
tary School and supported each
and every one of them. As a prin-
cipal, she realized that a "happy
faculty produced more than a dis-
gruntled faculty," said K. Hines.
She was never a leader to micro
manage, but instead supported the
faculty's innovative ideas, provid-
ing resources when needed and
freedom to implement programs
to help the students. The success
of Mrs. Ledvina is evident in the
great school Trenton Elementary
has become. Trenton Elementary
has been an "A" school for the
last seven years and the best in the
state for two years running.
Trenton Elementary is mourn-'
ing the loss of a great principal.
Words can't express the loss that
the students, staff, and faculty
feel. However, the legacy that
Mrs. Ledvina has left is strong
and will be continued for years to
come. God bless Mrs. Ledvina in
her future endeavors. Trenton El-
ementary School will always hold
her near and dear to their hearts.

THS Junior, Elizabeth "Zabby"
Grant was recently notified that a
poem she wrote has been chosen for
publication in the poetry anthology,
"A Celebration of Youth."
She was encouraged by Gifted
teacher Debbie Williamson to enter
a national contest designed to offer
talented young writers the opportu-
nity to be published, sponsored by
a company called Creative Commu-
nication. Her poem, "Grandfather
Free" reflects the influence of her
Native American heritage, as well as
her own concerns for nature conser-
vancy. "There is just so much beauty
in life that we all take for granted,"
she says. "I wanted my poem to re-
mind us of how blessed we are."

pancake can lead to. Her request
of syrup for the pancake leads to
a bath with bubbles, a toy, and

child will enjoy reading it as you
discover her outrageous desires.
For the junior reader, I found

these novels could be classed as

Escalating food prices don't worry area 4-H members

By Carrie A. Mizell
Allie and Miranda Madlem didn't
know much about growing their own
vegetables prior to their family mov-
ing home to Gilchrist County three
years ago to a farm that's been in
their family for 100 years.
Since then the two girls, who are
both members of the Jolly Ranchers
4-H Club, have taken pride in sharing
the fruits of their labor with elderly
neighbors while growing vegetable
gardens for the 4-H Vegetable Gar-
den Program.
Along with 34 other 4-H club
members from throughout Gilchrist
County, Allie, 14, and Miranda, 12,
planted ten 20-foot rows of vegeta-
bles on their property shortly after
the Suwannee River Fair in March.
Following the direction of a garden
plan and 4-H Agent Chris DeCubel-
lis' advisement the 4-H'ers planted
the seeds of onions, okra, radish-
es, turnips, green beans, zucchini,
squash, cucumbers, tomatoes and
sweet corn. Putting the seeds in the
ground is the easy part, keeping up
with a vegetable garden record book
that requires the grower to document
soil samples, fertilizer applications,
pesticide use and farm expenses is a
little more time consuming.
"The idea is to get the kids to eat
more vegetables by showing them
how to grow their own," DeCubellis
While maintaining their gardens,
4-H'ers are encouraged to keep track
of all the different vegetables they
pick. The record book also directs the
4-H'ers to go to the grocery store and
see what the vegetables they are har-
vesting at home are selling for com-
mercially. According to DeCubellis,
the 4-H members then use the com-
mercial value they obtained to deter-
mine the value of their homegrown
vegetables to determine how much
money is saved by growing ones own
In its debut year in Gilchrist Coun-
ty, the 4-H garden project earned a
4-H Program of Excellence Award at
the state level in 2007.
Florida 4-H officials are not the
only one's impressed by the pro-
Allie and Miranda's mother Sylvia
Strickland also praises the vegetable
garden project.
"In the last two years the girls have
learned to work while tending their

lie Madlem-second place, Chandler DeCubellis-fourth place and Josh
Akin-fifth place.

gardens and canning the vegetables
they grow," Strickland said. "They
have learned a lot of responsibility."
Following a judging of each 4-H
member's vegetable garden and proj-
ect record book, DeCubellis hosted a
vegetable contest on Saturday morn-
ing that focused on 4-H members'
selection of four different vegetables
from their garden. Judges from the
Trenton Farmers' Market circled a
table setup at the Trenton Depot to
determine which vegetables were
harvested at the right time, were
uniform in size, and showed signs
of disease or insect damage. Once
the numbers from the garden judg-
ing, record book and vegetable judg-
ing were calculated overall winners
were: Miranda Madlem placed first
place, Allie Madlem placed second,
Chandler DeCubellis placed fourth
and Josh Akin placed fifth. Akin also
won a top prize for his garden scare-
"It's been a rough spring with the
drought and diseases," DeCubellis
said. "But they've done a really good
job this year. A lot of the kids' 4-H
gardens look better than mine!"

Heart Matters
There are just some jobs that are
meant for a Dad to do. Our younger
son came to my husband a few weeks
ago with a plan to sell his truck and
buy a more economical car. I heard
his older brother tell him, "Don't buy
anything without Daddy looking at
it.. .he will get you the best deal." I
nodded in agreement to this with an
inward sigh of relief that this one was
all Dads'! This morning they left to
go make his plan happen.. .with my
daughter tagging along, of course.
She is a Daddy's girl (who would
never pass up an opportunity that
might take her near the mall.) I am so
thankful that my children have a Dad
who steps up to the plate and inspires
their confidence.. .and mine.
My Daddy's footprints are at that
same plate... during my younger
years he worked away from home so
he wasn't with us as much as I know
he would have liked. He took seri-
ously his responsibility to provide for
us and was committed to making sure
we had a good start in life. Some-
how he was still able to coach my
brother's baseball team and attend
every football game I cheered...and
we always knew that he wanted us to
be the best we could be. Like most

men, Daddy didn't give a lot of rela-
tionship advice, but when I suffered
my first "heartbreak" in high school,
he clued me in to the fact that I must
first learn how to be "okay with my-
self" before I could be okay in a re-
lationship. Priceless advice that still
holds true! Thank you, Daddy.
The Bible has plenty to say about
the responsibilities of a Father...bot-
tom line: they are to be the leader,
protector and provider for their fami-
lies. Proverbs 4:1-2 has this to say:
"Listen my sons, to a father's in-
struction; pay attention and gain un-
I give you sound learning, so do
not forsake my teaching."
In our society we hear plenty about
deadbeat dads and absent fathers, but
I want to draw some long overdue at-
tention to the Dads who are staying in
the game and doing the hard work to
get it right. Those who get up every
day and head to work whether they
feel like it or not.. .who help with sci-
ence projects and read bedtime sto-
ries... who play catch and attend tea

Subsection 9.03.02 U of the Gilchrist County Land Develop-
ment Code prohibits:

Signs erected bn public property, or on private property (such
as private utility poles) located on public property, other than
signs erected by public authority for public purposes.

During campaign seasons it becomes necessary to strictly
enforce this prohibition so that campaign and other signs
placed in the right of way of county roadways do not:

$ Create safety hazards by blocking views at intersections.

$ Interfere with the ability of the county road department to
efficiently maintain county rights of way.

Over the coming weeks the Gilchrist County Road Depart-
ment and Code Enforcement Officer will focus on removal of
signs from the public right of way that:

$ Are not placed both as far back on the right of way as
possible AND parallel to the fence or rear edge of the right of

$ Are placed at an intersection in such a way that there is
any possibility that the sign will block views of motorists or
interfere with county maintenance of the right of way.

As a matter of law, the County is required to enforce its sign
regulations without making any distinctions based on the
content of the signs. Thus, the foregoing enforcement activ-
ity will apply to ALL signs, including, but not limited to,
campaign signs and real estate signs.

lations, please call John McPherson, County Attorney, at

2007 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 2006 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 low susceptibility levels and twelve 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 and third Monday of each month beginning at 5:30 pm at City Hall in the Kathryn Deen
Commission Chambers.
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 January 1 to December 31, 2007. Data obtained before January 1, 2007, 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 abbreviations. 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 for a 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 (;pg/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 and synthetic 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 to complete required sampling for total tap water lead and copper on time and therefore were in violation of monitoring and reporting requirements. Because we did hot take the required number of
samples, we did not know whether the contaminants weie 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 7/1/07
through 9/31/07. Twenty samples were required for each contaminant and none were taken within the required monitoring period. Samples were taken in December 2007, however in addition to being
sampled late, 13 of the 20 samples were not taken from the correct locations and could not be accepted by the Department. Sampling will resume January through June 2008.

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 stonnwater 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 stormnwater 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 other 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 Hotline (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.

Car Of 'Thanks
Many years ago when J. Min Ay-
ers and family dedicated land to help
bring a nursing home to Gilchrist
County and Trenton, little would it
be known what a great place it would
turn out to be. My mother was there
and received the best care, possible.
Now many years later my wife, Fran-
cine, has been there and passed away
there. The care that Francine received
from the staff at Ayers under very try-
ing conditions was unbelievable. The
showing of love from the staff, man-
agement, nurses and aides, words
cannot describe.
My thanks, the thanks of my fam-
ily and Francine's family, words can-
not express our appreciation for.all
that was given to her at a very trying
