Hunt for Jr. Kelly's killer heats up as reward is raised to $5,000

By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
and Gilchrist County Crime Stoppers
have raised a reward to $5,000 for
information leading to the arrest and
conviction of the person or persons
involved in the murder of Bell farmer
Junior Kelly.
According to Dennis Smith, a board
member of Heart of Florida Crime
Stoppers, the reward was raised from

$2,500 to $5,000 because, everyone
involved wants to work aggressively
to find the person or persons who
killed Kelly. The 78-year-old was
found dead at his home north of Bell
on Nov. 19, 2008. Prior to his death,
Kelly had been a victim of numerous
home invasions and feared for his
own safety.
In a foreboding letter written to the
editor'of the Gilchrist County Jour-

nal and published on July 24, 2008,
Kelly stated, "Although the loss of
money and stolen items is troubling,
the real and most damaging loss is
my peace of mind. At 78,1 I should not
have to deal with waking up at night,
lying in my bed, and listening for an
intruder. I should not have to wonder
each morning what has been stolen
during the night ... It is obvious that
the criminals are far more persistent

than the law enforcement officers in
this county."
As of Tuesday morning, Lt. David
Aderholt, investigations commander
at the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice, would only say that the homicide
investigation is still ongoing..
According to Smith, board mem-
bers of Heart of Florida Crime Stop-
pers, which oversees Gilchrist County
Crime Stoppers and Alachua County

Crime Stoppers, decided to wait sev-
eral months to see how the investiga-
tion matured before deciding to raise
the reward.
"The community has to get in-
volved 'for this case to be solved,"
Smith said.
Anyone with information on the
murder of Junior Kelly is asked to
call, (352) 463-STOP (7867). All
callers will remain anonymous.

River Clean Up" event and removed
nearly 20-yards of trash:
Items removed were 55-gallon
drums, tires, chairs, tables, steel, dia-
pers, bottles, cans and so much more.
Several, of the participates comment-
ed on looking back along the banks
where they had just removed trash
and seeing first hand the different
they had made. What a team effort
with nearly 110 volunteers helping
some in canoes and boats as well the
land-lubber crew helping with set-up,
entertainment, cooking, serving lunch
and. removing trash from the boats.
The clean up began around 8:30
a.m. at various locations along the
Suwannee River (Hart Springs, Otter
Springs and Suwannee Gables Motel)
with everyone gathering at Hinton
Landing in Dixie County for lunch,
live entertainment and door prizes.
Seventeen members of the Su-
wannee-River Cruisers boat club, as
well as several others in their boats,
worked side-by-side with forty-five
volunteers in canoes serving as their
guide and transporting the, trash to
the drop off point. All participants
received a Pure Water Wilderness
T-shirt highlighting the event and
everyone enjoyed a delicious BBQ
Pure Water Wilderness provided

Dream of becoming a country music recording artist

comes true for one Gilchrist County native

Easton Corbin knew he wanted to
be a country singer well before he
learned how to play guitar.
"One of my earliest memories
is from when I was three or four,"
Corbin said. "I was sitting between
my parents in the car and a song came
on the radio-it was Mel McDaniel's
'Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On,' I
began using the gearshift as my mi-
crophone. The desire has always
been there."
Born and raised in Gilchrist Coun-
ty, Easton spent much of his time on
his grandparent's cattle farm after
his parents divorced when he was
"I lived a mile from the Suwannee
River," Corbin said. "I grew up fish-
ing on it and I loved to work on the
farm. Every weekend, that's where
I'd be."
A 2000 Trenton High School grad-
uate, Corbin was a member of FFA
and 4-H. He showed cattle at the Su-
wannee River Fair.
Growing up the smallest county in
the state on farmland nestled between
two small towns had its advantages.
"It's a close community," Easton
said. "Everybody knows everybody.
"There's no Wal-Mart there,"
Corbin said. "There was a Hardee's,
but it closed. That was the only fran-
chise fast food place in the county.
Trenton has a red light; Bell has a
blinking light. It's a great place." *
While no one in his family played
a musical instrument, music was a
big part of his upbringing.
"My grandparents liked to watch
the Opry," Corbin remembers. "We'd
start Saturday night off with Hee
Haw and then Opry Backstage and
then Opry Live."
It was also at his grandparent's
house that he discovered a record
player and his father and aunts' left-
behind records in a front room.
"I'd go in there and play those re-

When Corbin was 15 years old he
began taking guitar lessons from Pee

had at one time played on sessions in

Groundbreaking held for

Nearly 100 people gathered under
the shade of the oaks on a recent Sun-
day afternoon to participate and to
express support for Harmony Preg-
nancy and Resource Center's long-
anticipated building project.
After introductions and special
recognition, attendees moved to
;the footprint of the building where
the dirt was turned in a ceremonial
groundbreaking. A dedication prayer
was given by Dr. Jerry Nash.
The new center will be a two-story
structure in a country cottage design.
It will include rooms for meeting
with clients, a classroom, and a media
room for educational purposes. Ad-
ministrative offices as well as an area
for processing donations of clothing
and supplies for mothers and babies
are in the plans.
The pregnancy center is currently
located in the Providence Mall Plaza,
adjacent to Central Florida Commu-
nity College.
The center has assisted nearly 800
young women to. date.

"I'd always wanted to play and
sing, but up until that time I never re-
ally did do it in public," Corbin said.
"We'd play school functions and par-
ties. We were too young to play bars,
but we played everything else."_
An impromptu audition at a local
music store led to a slot on the Su-
wannee River Jam, a nearby festival
that attracts thousands of people and
national touring acts.
"It was just me and a guitar in front
of a 40-acre field full of people,"

Senior citizens center site will be moved

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion took action on Monday to
correct some problems that were
identified involving the new Senior
Citizens Center to be built near CR
307-A west of Trenton.
Gilchrist County Administra-
tor Ron McQueen explained to the
board that the county had identi-
fied an $82,000 budget that in-
volved some in-kind services that
the board had agreed to provide in
lieu of site prep, land donation, en-
gineering and a share of the water
and sewer installation with the City
of Trenton.

neering of Lake City is engineering

done on a one acre parcel that the
Commission had donated for the
A location for construction was
selected before the Gilchrist County

Department of Transportation hauled
44 loads of dirt .to the site before
foundation construction began.
McQueen explained that Road De-
partment Superintendent Billy Can-
non asked questions regarding the
location of the site.
A committee meeting was called
on the site to review the soil boring
findings and other questions being
The committee determined that the
building needed to be moved 150-feet
to the northwest to get away from the
identified layers of clay in the pre-
vious location and the new location
would raise the level of the grade by
an estimated four feet.
McQueen told the Commission that
the county's portion of the building
project budget might still be within
the $82,000 estimate.
Information and estimates are still
coming in involving additional ex-
penses by the engineering group,

McQueen added. He told the board
that Joe Andersori ofAnderson-Co-
lumbia Inc. had been contacted re-
garding the possibility of donating
asphalt for the parking lot.
The Senior Citizens organization
is constructing new facilities in Gil-
christ; Dixie, and Union counties.
"There seems to be several issues
that are just not right involving this
project," explained Commissioner
Randy Durden.
He added that one contractor had
told him that he had paid $150 for a
set of the building plans that he was
unable to read and identify what he
needed to submit for a bid on the
construction project.:
Commissioner Durden made a
motion to donate an additional one
half acre of land to the Senior Citi-
zens Center in order to move the,
construction site 150 feet. Commis-
sioner Thomas gave a second as.the
board voted 3-0 in favor. ,

it. but I had to get my education first
so I had something to fall back' on."
Corbin, who had been making reg-
ular trips to Nashville to perform at
writer's nights, took a day job at a lo-
cal Ace Hardware and his wife found
a job at a doctor's office.
When a distant cousin, also a
professor of music management at
the University of Montana, heard
Corbin's music, he asked if he could
send it to some of his Nashville con-
tacts. Among those who were im-
pressed by Corbin's music was book-
ing .agent James Yelich, who asked
if he could hear him play in person.
Corbin, eager for a shot to pursue his
dream, quickly agreed.
Also at the meeting was Joe Fisher,
who had recently joined Universal
Music Group Nashville as Senior
Director of A&R. The two men
were blown away and Fisher quickly
'signed him to the label.
Easton, whose musical influences
include George Jones, Merle Hag-
gard, George Strait and Keith Whit-
ley, found a kindred spirit in producer
Carson Chamberlain, who years ear-
lier had toured with Whitley as his
steel guitar player and bandleader.
"We really hit it off," Corbin says.
"I love traditional music and he does
too. I knew he was the producer for
The two men began working in ear-
nest. "We worked our butts off trying
to find the right songs," Easton says.
The result is an over-the-top album
that includes cuts from Nashville's
top songwriters, including Mark D.
Sanders, Wynn Varble, Tony Lane
and David Lee, among others.
First single, "A Little More Coun-
try Than That," which was written
by Rory Feek, Don Poythress and
Varble, paints a picture of rural life
that speaks to Easton's small town
sensibilities. �
"Even though I didn't write it, this
song identifies who I am," -Corbin
said. "It shows character and that's
important where I'm from. You learn
to say 'yes, ma'am' and 'no, sir,' and
to open the door for the ladies."
Among the songs included on the
album are three Easton co-wrote with
Chamberlain and Sanders during a
trip to Colorado.
"When I came to Nashville I real-
ized how important it was to write
songs," Corbin said. "The opportu-
nity to sit in a room with experienced
songwriters and learn their craft has
helped me become a better writer.
"I'm still working and develop-
ing as a writer, but I was fortunate
enough to get some songs on the
album," Corbin said, perhaps more
humble than he needs to be.
"The Way Love Looks," which
Corbin co-wrote with Chamberlain

and Sanders, is a love song pure and
"It's just a fun upbeat song," Corbin
said. "I love the line 'when you beg
and plead to'go fishing with me and
I have to bait your hook,' because
that's what happens when I take my
wife fishing."
Tony Lane, David Lee and Johnny
Park wrote "Roll With It," which
speaks to the important things in life,
like sunsets and pick-up trucks.
"I love that one," Corbin said. "I
can imagine listening to it just floa-
tin' down the river on the boat on a
Saturday." ,
The tender "I Can't Love You
Back," written by Chamberlain, Clint
Daniels and Jeff Hyde, has a univer-
sal message of loss.
"It can mean different things for
different people," Corbin said. "She
could have died, she could have left
him-people can interpret it the way

they feel."
Now that his life long dream is
upon him, Corbin says he's ready.,
"I just want to make great country,
music," Corbin said. "Just the opport
tunity to play music for a living is a
great thing. I'm just thankful to have
the opportunity to do what I'm doing:
As of Tuesday morning 35,889,
people have viewed Corbin's,
MySpace profile and of those, 41,04Q
have played his first single "A Little -
. More Country Than That". ,
As a Mercury Nashville. artist,;
Corbin's first single is expected to be
released in August.

bie Corbin and Delinda and Glen

Trumpp gets

discretion on

Special Use


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
heard Outback Trader owner Stan
Trumpp ask the board for a waiver
involving a $450 fee for a Special
Use Permit to get his Federal Fire-
arms license reinstated. The handicap
business owner told the board that at
this time that the $450 fee would be
an extreme hardship on him since he
has to purchase medications due to
his ill health every month.
"I will be glad to give the county
a check for $450. Today if you will
hold the check until the Special .Use
Permit is approved," Trumpp ex-
Gilchrist County attorney John
McPherson told the board that Gil-
christ County does not have any
guidelines in place to allow the board
to waive the Special Use Permit.
"Since the county cannot waive the
fee, the board would consider allow-
ing the applicant to make payments
on the permit up to one year to com-
plete the fee expense," said Commis-
sioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr. "I don't
have any problem with the payment
plan as long as the fee is paid within
12 months," stated Commissioner
Durden. Commissioner Durden made
a motion to approve the payment play
tor the applicant to pay a minimum of
$37.50 a month to pay for the $450
within a one-year period. The board
agreed by a 3-0 vote.

On Monday afternoon as I sat
and listened to Harley Pfaffenberger
request the Gilchrist County Com-
mission help him pay his debts by
providing him with a $25,000 Home
Equity loan through the SHIP pro-
gram in Gilchrist County, I thought
what is this program coming to.
I listened and really felt touched
about Pfaffenberger's situation that
he had gotten himself into just to
have storage space to keep some ap-
pliances and other personal valuables
on his home site near Trenton.
Pfaffenberger explained to the
Commission that since they would
not allow him to keep a second old
mobile home on his property for
storage, he was in need of funds to
construct a building that would allow
him to store his personal belongings
he could not fit into his new SHIP
Several months ago the Gilchrist
County resident had submitted an
application to the Gilchrist County
SHIP program for the committee to
consider a reverse mortgage to pro-
vide him with the revenue to make
improvements he felt he needed.
The SHIP Loan revenue commit-
tee reviewed the application and
recommended denial of the applica-
tion because the county did not have
any guidelines involving this type of
loan. Commissioner Randy Durden
told Pfaffenberger when he addressed
the board Monday afternoon that
Gilchrist County is not in the banking
and finance business; this program
seeks to help low to moderate income
residents get into a residence if they
can meet the guidelines of a long-
term commitment, he explained.

Many thanks

Dear Editor,
I never truly appreciated the Jour-
nal until our granddaughter's wed-
ding announcement appeared in the
paper on June 14, 2009. An admira-
ble piece of work and wonderful cop-
ies were sent to the Gainesville Sun
by the Journal and also to relatives
at no cost to us and with a terrific at-
titude of caring. Thank you, Journal-
you are a new favorite of ours.
I would also like to commend the
Journal for printing the excellent
report concerning Jordan Hilliard's
wedding. It was most interesting

The SHIP and CDBG programs
have worked very well in most oc-
casions for many applicants. For this
particular man, it has worked so well
that he moved into this new home
and was granted the request to keep
an older mobile home as a storage
unit and has not had to pay a dime.

On to more enjoyable topics the
scallop season is in, and the early re-
ports are good all up and down the
Big Bend coastal areas.
I had the pleasure of talking to
several people that made a trip to the
coastal shallows over the Indepen-
dence Day holiday; everyone that I
talked with reported they found scal-
lops in a short period of time.
I'm in hopes of going soon and
carrying the kids. One of these days
the grandkids will be big enough to
put on a mask and flippers.
If you get a chance to go scallop-
ing, take a child with you and teach
them how to enjoy the outdoors; the
memories will stay with them for-

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers

It is summertime once again and
the living is easy, or at least it used
to be. The'calendar says that summer
officially started a few days ago, yet
for minany of us the season kicks off
with the celebration of Independence
In the past, July 4 has meant the of-
ficial start of the beach and barbecue
season, while others view it as a time
for a well earned vacation. Unfor-
tunately, this year many of you will
be forced to forego a vacation due to
economic circumstances.
Yet, regardless of circumstances,
each year at this time everyone al-
ways asks the same question...will
the stock market treat us to a summer
rally? Summer rally, heck if the mar-
kets would just escape the jaws of
the bear chances are most investors
would be waving flags and jumping
up and down.
So what is the likelihood of a sum-
mer rally? Statistically, 73 years
of data show July as being the best
month for stock prices in terms of
percentage gain. Furthermore, the
Dow has rallied during 57 of the
past 64 summers. Of course, if you
subscribe to the theory that the stock
market represents a series of indepen-
dent events, then a rally has exactly
the same statistical probability as no
rally. Nonetheless, many long-time
observers of the stock market con-
cede that there are certain .seasonal
Of greater importance this year is

Dead Faith And Faith Justified - Part 1
(Kent Heaton)

Salvation is of eternal consequence and all who believe
in God must accept the will of God as He has given to man
through His word. From the beginning of time requirements
for salvation have been clearly outlined. Confusion has
always come from the disregard man gives toward the law
of the Lord. In the religious world of believers in Christ,
salvation has as many answers as the stars in the heavens.
Can one be saved only by faith? Does grace alone save?
What part do works have in my salvation? Can I be saved
by works? These questions are paramount to salvation
because a wrong answer will bring about dire
There are two kinds of faith and two kinds of works.
There is a faith that is referred to as "dead faith." James
writes, "Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works,
is dead ... For as the body without the spirit is dead, so
faith without works is dead also" (James 2:17,26). Faith
can be dead or of no power or invalid. The apostle Paul
writes in Romans 5:1 of the faith justified. "Therefore,
having been justified by faith, we have peace with God
through our Lord Jesus Christ," This kind of faith is a
righteous faith and acceptable to God.
There are two kinds of works: dead works and works that
justify. The Hebrew writer urges his readers to "go on to
perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance
from dead works" (Hebrews 6:1). James describes works
that make a person righteous before God. "You see then
that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only"
(James 2:24). Whether of faith or of works, there are those
actions by the individual that will either condemn him
before God or justify him before God.

Dead faith is characterized by Jesus in Matthew 6:30
when men fail to trust, in God. He rebuked His disciples in
Matthew 8:26 with their lack of faith during the storm.
Faith alone cannot save as James illustrates: "You believe
that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons
believe-and tremble" (James 2:19). Felix was afraid but
his trembling faith did not save him (Acts 24:25-27). The
apostle John describes the rulers who believed in Jesus,
"but because of the Pharisees they did not confess Him, lest
they should be put out of the synagogue; for they loved the
praise of men more than the praise of God" (John
Faith without works is a dead faith. "Thus also faith by
itself if it does not have works, is dead" (James 2:17).
Again in James 2:26 it says, "For as the body without the
spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also." To
believe that faith alone saves denies the clear teaching of
God. The only time' in scripture that faith alone' is found is
when the Lord says, "You see then that a man is justified
by works, and not by faith only" (James 2:24). Faith is the
foundation of our relationship with God. The Hebrew
writer declares in the great chapter on faith, "But without
faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to
God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of
those who diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6).
The Bible shows that faith that is little, or trembling and
without works is a dead faith - neither pleasing nor
acceptable to God! Faith alone is a dead faith! Without faith
man cannot please God! -Next week we will examine faith
justified and how man is saved by faith.

cier homes at Suwannee now days,

abode. Our family knows that once

something very, very good. You are

my. In that case you could rightfully
argue that the road ahead for Wall
Street, while it may have a few pot-
holes, is likely to be a positive one.
Probably the worst among those
postholes is 'unemployment, a key
reason for the lack of demand in the
economy. Last January, despite over-
whelming opinion to the contrary,
I stated that we would see a double
digit unemployment rate by the end
of the year. According to a recent
statement by the White House, the
rate will hit 10 percent in the next
two months.
That is the bad news. The good
news is that the unemployment rate is
usually the last of the major econom-
ic indicators to show improvement as
you exit a recession. Therefore, when
the rate begins to decline, which I be-
lieve will begin to happen in the first
half of-2010, you will know that some
solid economic growth is underway.
Furthermore, improving economic
conditions during the second half
of this year will likely mean higher
equity prices with US stocks outper-
forming European stocks and emerg-
ing markets outpacing developed
markets for the year.
So what about the omnipresent
inflation genie? As Business Week
adroitly pointed out, ever since the
late economist Milton Friedman
wrote in 1963 that "inflation is always
and everywhere a monetary phenom-
enon," central bankers have been on
notice that printing too much of the
green stuff jeopardizes their legacies
as guardians of sound money.
Yet, the Federal Reserve has in-
creased the nation's monetary base
by 114 percent over the past year
through May. Is Fed policy just ask-
ing to set loose the inflation genie
upon an unsuspecting public?
The answer is an unqualified no,
and furthermore the increase in the
monetary base may not even be large
enough. Understand that the infla-
tionary effects are being fully off-
set, or perhaps more than offset, by
household debt repayments. House-
holds are paying down debt and sav-
ing more.
The people who worry about infla-
tion have not fully, grasped the rami-
fications of this multi-trillion dollar

We had a very special 4th of July
down.at Suwannee aka Salt Creek
and before that known as. Demory
Hill. Suwannee has an interesting
history as well as many name chang-
es through the years.
Suwannee is our family's pot of
gold at the end of the rainbow. When
we pack our duffle and fill the cooler
with food, then ice it down; we are
one happy bunch. Happy because we
know that just a few miles down the
road across a couple of bridges, we
will arrive at The Camp.
My children grew up fishing on the
old dock in front of the camp. Their
grandfather, J. Min was a patient man
when it came to untangling fishing
lines and threading wigglers onto
hooks for his grandchildren. I still
remember the excited squeals when
a sassy young brim would take their
red and white plastic bobber under.
This past weekend the two young-
est members of the Ayers' clan spent
their very first 4th of July down at the
camp. It did my old heart good to sit
and watch as another generation of
our bunch claimed Suwannee as their
As our families gathered to have
lunch, a low country boil on the
banks of the beautiful Suwannee
River, I could not help but smile as
I thought about how much. Me-Ma,
(John's mother) loved the camp.
Mary (MeMa to us) inherited the
camp from her father. I sat silent for
a while listing to everyone visiting
and enjoying handfuls of boiled pea-
nuts. I pondered how pleased MeMa
and PePa would be to see the smil-
ing faces and hear the happy chatter
as everyone enjoyed the day and the
.shade of the ancient gnarly oak which

Pet Therapy can bring
comfort to hospice
By Jenni Williams
Pets play an important role in peo-
ple's lives. From dogs to rabbits to
fish, pets are faithful, loving and true.
When people are nearing end-of-life,
these faithful animals are so much
more valued and appreciated to bring
unconditional love, comfort and hap-
piness into lives.
According to revolutionhealth.
com, pet therapy has been a subject
of serious study for over 40 years
for nursing and other health care dis-
ciplines concerned with emotional
well-being and quality of life. Stud-
ies have shown that pet therapy of-
fers psychological and psychosocial
benefits in terms of emotional con-
nection, stress reduction, lowering of
blood pressure and reduced feelings
of loneliness and isolation. Since
chronic stress is a -major risk factor
in many medical and mental health
conditions, regular contact with a pet
can help decrease anxiety and stress
by tapping into a sensory experience
which increases feelings of calm
and well-being, especially during
the complicated times. Studies have
also shown that pet therapy is effec-
tive with senior citizens and hospice
patients suffering from cognitive im-

good for three years. Before taking
the course, the participant should
check with his/her insurance carrier
to see if they honor the program.
You may contact the following
instructors if you are interested in
getting a class together: Patricia Ma-
theny at 528-9005, Linda Cochran

"Two heads are better than one."
When making important decisions
,alone, we have limited information,
knowledge and perspective... but by
"adding just one person to the mix,
we immediately double that territory.
Seeking the input of others is a great,
idea if we want to be more successful
in any project or goal.
When it comes to relationships,
not only are two heads better than
one, two hearts are a necessity. In
order for any relationship to grow,
strengthen and weather conflict, both
hearts need to be engaged, plugged in
and committed to "togetherness". If
leaving the relationship is an option,
it will always seem to be the easy way
out. Walking away may be appealing
in the heat of conflict, but anyone who
has been divorced, or separated from
a parent, child, sibling or anyone they
love knows that it is no piece of cake
either. We all need people in our life
that we can count on to be there for
us.. .even when we make mistakes.
This saying came from the Old
Testament book of Ecclesiastes 4:9-
10, where, the Bible says: "Two are
better than one because they have a
good return for their work.
If one falls down, his friend can
help him up.

Revival Services at
Spirit of Holiness

The Spirit of Holiness Commu-
nity Church is holding a revival with
Evangelist Wesley Ard from July 12
to July 19. Sunday services are at 10

But pity the man who falls and has
no one to help him up."
The good return mentioned here
gives reference to the fact that two
people can accomplish more than
one person alone, but it also implies a
more satisfying reward. We all know
that when something good happens,
it is way better to share it with some-

LIFE program will
continue at RMS
LIFE will go on for another year at
Richardson Middle School (RMS),
courtesy of The Ichetucknee Partner-
ship (TIP) and the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Prolection
LIFE is the award-winning Learn-
ing in Florida's Environment program
developed by DEP, and introduced at
RMS last year in teacher Kelly Tom-
linson's 6th-grade advanced place-
ment class. Funding to bring LIFE to
RMS last year was provided by TIP
and DEP. At its quarterly meeting on
June 11, the TIP executive commit-
tee approved continued funding for
the 2009-10 school year, to cover the
cost of expanding the program to in-
*clude both sixth- and seventh-grade
advanced placement classes.
The program provides both claps-
room study and field experiences
for students, so that they can better
understand local water resources
- Which for RMS students means Al-
ligator Lake, Ichetucknee River and
Springs,, and the Floridan Aquifer.
. The TIP executive committee also
heard from Alan Baker, of Advanced
Geospatial Inc. (AGI), who pre-
sented the Columbia County Aquifer
Vulnerability Assessment (CCAVA).
CCAVA identifies areas of Columbia
County where the Floridan Aquifer
system is more vulnerable to con-
tamination from activities at land
AGI developed the CCAVA at the
request of the Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District, Columbia
County, and the City of Lake City.
The study, sponsored by TIP and
funded by the� District, the County,
the City and DEP, can be used as a
tool to help county and city officials
make informed decisions on future
growth and development.
"This study would be a good plan-
ning tool for the county," said County
Manager Dale Williams.

US farmers overcome
adversity, surpass
Farmers faced looming adversity
during the spring planting season,
which caused lowered expectations,
but they ultimately overcame these
adversities. The USDA projects the
second-largest corn planting acreage
Since 1946, after 2007.
Early stages of planting were simi-
lar to last year's conditions. Though
low temperatures and frequent pre-
cipitation slowed planting in early
May, warmer dryer conditions even-
tually returned, allowing farmers to
make accelerated progress in late
May. U.S. corn producers planted an
estimated 87 million acres, up 1 per-
cent from 2008. U.S. soybean farm-
ers reached a historic high, increasing
planting nearly 2 percent from 2008,
with 77.5 million acres planted. To-
gether, U.S. corn and soybean pro-
ducers worked steadfastly to plant a
total 164.5 million acres-, an increase
of nearly 3 percent.

and CEO Ken Hobbie said U.S ag-

Pastor Jerry Milton youth Director Josh Dease

On June 30th, the youth who at-
tended the Bell Library Summer Pro-
gram were in for a treat. The Gilchrist
Soil and Water Conservation Dis-
trict presented a program on Florida
Farms and the importance they play
in everyone's lives. The youth were
asked, where did their food come
from? Most responded from a farm
which was very surprising to hear, as
many will answer from Winn-Dixie,
Publix or Wal-Mart.
A book titled These Florida Farms
that explains where our food comes
from was read. In this book the
youth were taken on an adventure to
learn about the many different types
of farms Florida has. There are farms
that produce beef cattle, fruits and
vegetables, and the Gulf produces
seafood that is important in our daily
diet. There are vegetables that are
grown above ground as well as un-
derground. Then there are the farms
that produce items which are not
eaten such as cotton or flowers that
are-given for holidays or birthdays, or
any special occasion. Then there are
animals that may be used for farming
cattle, racing horses, show horses,
tropical fish for one's fish tanks, etc.
Don't forget about the many zoos that
fiouse different types.of animals and
plants. A zoo setting may be the only
contact we ever have to learn about
them . The book goes on to talk
about replenishing trees when they
are taken for products such as wood,

pencils, building material, etc.
The youth learned that when they
go into a 'grocery store hnd they see
all that food; it comes from a farm.
When they go into a clothing store
and they see those fancy shorts, skirts
and shirts, they come from a farm.
When they go to the seafood store to
get that fish or shrimp for dinner, it
came from a farm, gulf or ocean. In
the end, farmers need to be thanked
for all the hard work they do every
day, as farmers do not get time off
for holidays, birthdays, or any special
occasion, because these farm prod-
ucts must be harvested every day, so
that they can be available to us daily
as well.
This same program was also pre-
sented to Kathy's All Things Day

their efficiency and ability to produce
enough grains to meet market de-
mands. He said America's farmers
demonstrate a loyal commitment to
assuring an adequate supply of af-.
fordable quality feed despite hard-
ships faced during difficult spring
planting. With rapid response to the
marketplace, producers continually
provide unwavering dedication and
allegiance to U.S. and global con-
"I cannot say I am surprised by the
recent planning projections issued by
USDA. Time and time again, U.S.
farmers are faced with adversity, but
their commitment to providing an


Care in Bell. As these youth were not
, able to attend the library program due
to the rain, the program was brought
to them.
Everyone made a unique butterfly
which they took home afterwards,and
each received an additional coloring
book, activity book, pencil, eraser
and tattoos. The youth seemed to en-
joy this program very much.
For those who may have missed the
program in Bell, this same program
will be offered July 9th at the Trenton
Library, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
The Gilchrist Soil and Water
Conservation offer many programs
throughout the year. If anyone is in-
terested in learning more about our
program, please contact our office at

adequate supply of U.S. feed ingre-
dients as well as their dedication to
curbing global hunger perseveres,"
said Hobbie. "Thanks to U.S. farm-
ers, we are able to reassure our global
end-users on the reliability of U.S.
agriculture and create dependability
in the global marketplace for U.S.
agricultural products. This is another
factual demonstration of U.S. farm-
ers meeting global demand."
Information from surveys are com-
piled in USDA's Acreage Report,
released on June 30, 2009. Surveys
were conducted the first two weeks
of June.

Leadership Program

Caleb Smith recently attended
the North Florida HOBY Site of
the Hugh O'Brian Youth (HOBY)
Leadership Seminar. Caleb joined
more that 100 other young leaders
representing many high schools
from throughout North Florida.
Representing Trenton High School,
Caleb is the son of Shannon and
Christine Smith.
HOBY Leadership Seminars
bring together a select group of
sophomores from public and pri-
vate high schools to interact with
groups of distinguished leaders in
business, government, education
and the professions to discuss pres-
ent and future issues. The goal is
to provide the youths a stimulating
forum for learning about critical is-
sues while broadening their under-
standing of their leadership poten-
tial and quest for self-development.
HOBY leaders are also challenged
to return to their communities to
perform at least 100 hours of com-
rmunity service within 1.2 months
following the Seminar.
Since HOBY's founding, the goal
of each seminar is to provide a cata-
lyst to lifelong leadership develop-
ment that empowers individuals to
achieve their highest potential. As

the Ambassadors are exposed to
new ideas and engage in challeng-
ing topics, HOBY hopes to illustrate
how to constructively think and dis-
cuss complex issues with individu-
als from various backgrounds and
beliefs. The goal is to show the Am-
bassadors how to think rather than
what to think. Since 1958 HOBY
has been a part of more than 375,000
students lives, many of whom con-
tinue to volunteer on HOBY semi-
nar planning committees, in their
local communities, and schools to

On Monday, May 25, a baby
manatee was bom in the springs
at Otter Springs Park and Camp-
ground. The mother came into the
springs the day before and was seen
swimming slowly around the entire
area. At approximately 10:00 on
Monday, she came into shallow wa-
ter near the old concrete dock where
she gave birth to a new little mana-
tee. The mother and baby swam
around the springs the remainder

of the day, with mom nudging the
baby up for a breath periodically.
Many of the Memorial Day camp-
ground visitors were honored to see
the birth and first day of our newest
The park is also pleased to an-
'nounce that the springs are finally
clear of duckweed and are now
open for swimming.

Local survey on
tobacco advertising
Over the last several months, The
Quit Doc Research and Education
Foundation conducted a survey of
local businesses regarding point-of-
purchase tobacco advertising.
The survey, which looked at ex-
terior and interior tobacco advertis-
ing, was conducted in 13 businesses
within three miles of all of the public
schools within Gilchrist County.
Focusing on the type of market-
ing that impacts youth tobacco sales,
a standardized report card was used
to grade individual business on the
amount, type, and location of tobacco
products and tobacco advertising in
retailers that sell tobacco.
"Overall, 69% of tobacco retailers
received a failing grade," reported
Dr. Barry Hummel, co-founder of
the Quit Doc Research and Educa-
tion Foundation. "This means those
tobacco retailers hear local schools
have a significant amount of tobacco
advertising designed to target chil-
The worst offenders are conve-
nience stores and gas stations. All
of the retailers in these categories
received a failing grade. "The sur-
vey revealed that every single con-
venience store in Gilchrist County
aims their tobacco advertising at chil-
dren and teens," added Dr. Hummel,
"which is scary when you consider
how frequently teens visit these types
of businesses."
Meanwhile, other businesses
typically sell tobacco much more
discreetly. This is not the case in
,Gilchrist County. "Supermarkets, for
example, tend to score well because

they restrict tobacco sales to one
customer service area, and they have
little or no advertising," reported Dr.
Hummel. "This was not the case in
Gilchrist County, where two of the
three grocery stores also received a
failing grade."
There was one bright spot: three
pharmacies were included in the
survey, and all three had no tobacco
products or tobacco advertising.
"Larger drug stores, like CVS and
Walgreen's, tend to sell tobacco.
Ironically, those products are- fre-
quently sitting on shelves right next
to the smoking cessation aids. Small-
er pharmacies, like those in Bell and
Trenton, rarely sell tobacco. It was
nice to see local pharmacies follow-
ing that trend."

vey method visit www.storealert.org,

Farm Bill reauthorized
The 2008 Farm Bill reauthorized
the Farm Service Agency's (FSA)
Farm Storage Facility Loan Program
(FSFL). The program provides low-
interest financing for producers to
build or upgrade farm storage and
handling facilities.
To expedite the FSFL approval



process, producers planning tq sub-
mit an FSFL application to FSA, may
request an environmental evalua-
tion of their proposed project at their
county FSA office.
To comply with the provisions of
the National Environmental Policy
Act (NEPA), FSA must evaluate the
potential impacts the proposed struc-


ture could have on the environment
for FSFL applications. An FSA-850
form must be completed for each
FSFL application before the applica-
tion can be approved.
Producers requesting an environ-
mental compliance determination
are advised that the FSFL application
must be submitted and approved be-
fore site preparation and construction
can begin on the facility.
Applicants will be required to
identify the
*type of structure they wish to con-
*proposed site by marking the lo-
cation on an aerial photo.
County Offices will not accept
requests to complete FSA-850 via
telephone. If a producer is unable to
visit the office, the request must be
submitted in writing and include the
necessary information to complete
Additional information about initi-
ating a Farm Storage Facility Loan is

Springhouse Live Oak woman killed in

Quilters' July 4 car crash

Trenton City Commissioners are considering the best possible solution for flood problems on 10th Street.

City of Trenton moving closer to

reworking 10th street
By Cindy Jo Ayers
Phillip Chancey, P. E. of Mills Engineering Compapy, attended Monday's Trenton City Commission meeting to
present several new options for N.E. 10th Street.
There has been a flooding problem at the entrance of 10th street for several years now.
The plan includes elevating the street surface, constructing swales, and installing 9 inch thick concrete drives
which are about 2 inches lower in the center. This would allow the water to pass over the driveway when the first
two retention areas located adjacent to Hwy. 26 fill and overflow. The new street and drives would allow excess
water from rainfall to pass over drives on both sides of the road and pass onto two large drainage ditches just past the
driveways to Paul Redd's property and the Gilchrist Grill.
This drainage improvement plan that was approved will be approximately $38, 663.00.

5 Florida residents have died from H1N1

Last Thursday the Florida De-
partment of Health confirmed three
H1N1 Swine Flu related deaths: a
58-year-old male in Broward County,
a 31 year old female and 63 year old
male in Miami-Dade County. This
brings Florida's confirmed deaths
due to H1N1 Swine Flu to five.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to
the family and friends of these in-
dividuals," said Surgeon General Dr.
Ana Viamonte Ros. "Like seasonal
flu, Swine Flu can have serious im-
plications for people with preexisting
health conditions."
