Ayers County Road 138 was blocked for over three hours on Friday, Feb. 28 after a dump truck rolled over, trapping the driver inside. Marshall West, 62, of Fort White, was traveling east on CR 138 at 9:50 a.m. when he reportedly lost control of the 2006 Sterling dump truck he was driving. The truck drove off the right side of the pavement. The driver over-corrected as it came back onto the roadway traveling across both lanes and onto the left side of the highway. West attempted to steer the truck back onto the highway, but the truck rolled onto its left side. According to Trooper Hoover, the truck landed on its left side facing northeast. West was trapped inside the vehicle and had to be extracted. Fire Rescue workers from High Springs Fire Department and Alachua County Fire Rescue assisted Gilchrist County Fire Rescue with heavy rescue equipment to free the driver of the dump truck.

Submitted The City of Trenton will begin sprucing up the historic Railroad Depot before the Seventh Annual Trentons Suwannee Valley Quilt Festival, Saturday, Mar. 15. It will still be a work in progress at Festival time, said Taylor Brown, city manager. Visitors will be able to see The Depot in various stages of rehabilitation as we work to restore it. Trentons historic Railroad Depot has been a key location for displaying quilts, hosting demonstrations, and offering musical entertainment at each festival. This year it will house artistry of Lake City Fiber Muse; Gainesvilles Fiber Art Bee; and of a POD of art quilters, individual members of the international Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA). Cowboy Dave and Friends, a local band associated with Trentons United Methodist Church, will perform at the Depot, and the Springhouse Quilters, Gilchrist Countys largest quilting group, will be there to present a number of quilting demonstrations and offer handmade items for sale. Trentons Depot is one of the oldest buildings in Gilchrist County. The Atlantic Coast Line track was laid from Newberry to Trenton in 1905, and the station was completed in 1906. Starting in 1907, the railroad line ran from Newberry through Trenton to Old Town, Cross City and on to Perry. An early Depot photograph shows a smaller shed attached to the terminal building. John Ayers, editor of the Gilchrist County Journal recalls stories about the shed being extended years ago to accommodate the cucumber belt. Diane Clifton, a festival board member who grew up in Trenton, recalls when watermelon trucks parked all along the railroad line in the shade of the big live oaks. The melons were packed in straw and loaded onto the boxcars for shipment to distant markets. The large live oaks remain along Lancaster Avenue, but the Depot no longer welcomes trains. Its primary purpose is to serve as the Trenton trailhead for the Nature Coast State Trail, which currently extends west to Cross City and links with other communities. The paved surface on the old railroad right of way is ideal for biking and hiking, and enjoying the outdoor splendors of the Nature Coast. Soon, construction will begin to extend the trail east to Newberry. The Depot is also a multi-purpose venue for outdoor community events and activities throughout the year, including Trentons Christmas on Main Street. Even though the Depot has been a community landmark for more than one hundred years, few clear photographs have been located of the early years from 1910 to 1940. The city plans to paint the building to match its historic appearance, but some guesswork will be involved since clear visual guidance hasnt been found. part of the American Quilt Trail Movement, will be on display at the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shop and on the sides of buildings up and down Main Street, and their stories will be told. This year the Depot will be adorned with a brand new Barn Quilt Block in a railroad crossing quilt pattern. Trentons shops and businesses will sport quilts, host quilting demonstrations, and live music will will offer collectibles and antiques; artisans and old-time crafters will show their wares; antique cars and tractors will be on display; and the smells of great food from vendors and local eateries will tempt festivalgoers. Quilt guilds, sewing groups, and artisans of many stripes from throughout Florida come to the show every year. Trenton businesses and civic organizations welcome several thousand visitors, some who travel from hundreds of miles away for this colorful, inspiring, and ever-growing event. The annual event is sponsored by the City of Trenton, the Gilchrist County Commission, the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce, Pure Water Wilderness, the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe, plus a number of businesses and individuals in the tri-county area.

Fair season. Unknown I know Spring does until March 20, but last Saturday felt a whole lot like Spring to me. On my way to Fanning Springs I noticed several small patches of phlox blooming beside the road. I was headed to the Suwannee River 62nd Annual Suwannee River Fair. The much-beloved livestock fair is tri-county area. I really enjoyed spending a few minutes at the 1st annual barbecue cook-off held at the fair on Saturday. When I arrived I found eight very serious competitors with their grills already set up and coals smoldering. Several seasoned their chicken quarters and put their meat over parents looked on. Not only were the participants excited about the big cooking contest, but their parents seemed to be as well. I was pleased to see the barbecue competition added to the list of events at the fair this year. Like most of the events, Mr. Lorans BBQ Contest not only gave the students a chance to show off their skills, but it also gave them real life experience. The competitors were not only cooking for the contest, but they were also cooking in front of spectators. Besides that, someone had to teach these young people how to barbecue chicken before they got to the fairgrounds to compete. The participants clearly spent a lot of time working with their parents to learn the necessary skills before the day of the event. They worked hard and it showed. As I drove away from the fairgrounds, I thought about all those proud parents standing by, watching their children cook. Im old enough now to have watched several generations of young people from our area grow up, and for the most part the children who grow up participating in the fair seem to turn out really well. Yes, it takes time, lots of time, and the parents have to be willing to make that investment if their children are going to compete at the fair. But, it seems to me that time just might be the best investment we can make in our children and grandchildren. So, over the next couple weeks if you drive by the Suwannee River Fair, and see all the cars and trucks parked everywhere. Just know that inside that arena and on those grounds there are some of the best parents, students, leaders, advisors and fair After 60 plus years, the tradition of the Suwannee River Fair continues. --Easy Home Fries 4 russet potatoes, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch cubes 3 tablespoons vegetable oil or bacon drippings 1/2 cup chopped onion 1 teaspoon minced garlic, optional Salt and pepper to taste Creole seasoning Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place potatoes in medium size pot and cover with cold water and add 1 teaspoon salt. Bring potatoes to rolling boil and reduce heat. Simmer potatoes until just tender, about 5 or 6 minutes. Drain well. In a large cast iron frying pan heat oil over medium heat and add onions and garlic, cook until tender. Add potatoes, salt, pepper and season salt, stir gently, place in oven for 20 minutes. Stir once after 10 minutes. After 20 minutes, set the oven on broil and continue cooking until the potatoes turn light brown. Be sure to watch the potatoes closely while you are broiling them or they will burn. Sometimes I add about 1/2 cup of bell pepper and mushrooms to these potatoes and serve them as a side dish at supper.

CR-334A Trenton, FL 326 93 "Committed to living and sharing the message of God's love." As I have watched the weather channel this winter, I am more thankful than ever to live in Florida! There were many days when our little state was the only ground not literally covered with snow and ice. And yet, my feet stay cold from November till April. Between that and my thick southern accent, I would have to translator to survive up North! So, Im wondering if you have enjoyed the few warm afternoons lately teasing us toward spring as much as I have. I think spring is the season that yells NEW to us like nothing else. After months of everything looking dead, life begins to reappear. Miraculously, God is up to a new thing as He renews the earth! And yet, too often we take it for granted. Perhaps we just get used to the routine, and stop really seeing it. Listen to the words of Isaiah 43:1619: This is what the LORD saysHe who made a way through the sea, a path through the mighty waters, who drew out the chariots and horses, the army and reinforcements together, and they lay there, never to rise again, extinguished, snuffed out like a wick: Forget the former things: do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up, do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the desert and streams in the wastelandI provide water in the desert and streams in the wasteland, to give drink to my people, my chosen, the people I formed for myself that they may proclaim my praise. For generations, the children of Israel had repeated the testimony of God delivering them from slavery in Egypt by way of the Red Sea. Indeed, He parted those mighty waters and they walked through on dry ground. He also closed those waters over Pharaohs army and sent the Israelites on their way (Exodus 14). At the time of Isaiahs writing, the Israelites have once again found themselves enslaved. Not by Egypt this time, but by Babylon. No Red Sea, just a lot of sand. And God wants them to trust Him to deliver, but they cant see how He can. According to verse 22: Yet you have not called upon me they are just used to the routine. This is where we are, this is how it is. If we arent careful, we can make an idol out of our routine. We hold on to it so tight that we cant see God doing a new thing all around us, or IN us! What new thing does God want to do in your life? Renew your marriage? Make a new friend or heal a broken relationship? Is it time to get serious about taking care of control, or just break a bad habit? If you are honest, you already have an idea of what He wants to do; you just havent been willing to change. We settle with this is where I am, this is how it is because change is such a scary word and an even scarier thought. But what if the change is worth the change? What if you had help?

By John M Ayers The Gilchrist County Commission held a 3:30 p.m. workshop to consider procedures for the dedication of buildings in Gilchrist County. After a lengthy discussion involving the public, the Commission directed county attorney David M. Lang, Jr. to prepare information that would allow Gilchrist County to honor four members of the original agriculture facility committee: Jim Floyd, Darryl Williams, J.M. Murph Everett and Sue Beach Suggs. The public told the Commission that these four individuals were involved in the purchase of the original nine acres for the arena and note at Tri-County Bank. Former Gilchrist County Sheriff Jim Floyd was reported to have purchased the remaining 20+ acres. It was on this property where the Gilchrist County Sheriffs Department constructed a shooting range for training purposes. Commission Chairman D. Ray Harrison, Jr. asked fellow commissioners if they were in favor of having a plaque designed and put up at the arena identifying the four outstanding Gilchrist County residents. It was the consensus of the Commission to do so. Williams, Everett and Suggs have passed away. --In other action by the Commission, the board approved Resolution 2014-06 involving a Community Development Block Grant for $277,000 to pave two tenths of a mile of a rock road from US 129 to Ellie Rays Resort in north Gilchrist County on the Santa Fe River. Megan Carter representing North Florida Professional Services conducted a fair housing public workshop. According to Carter, a committee of Gilchrist County residents met on Monday, Feb. 24 and the consensus was that Gilchrist County residents do not want the county to bear any out-of -pocket expenses for this project. The Commission asked the CDBG coordinator if the right-of-way issue had been resolved involving Ellie Rays owner and a private property owner on the south side of NW 110th Street. Carter told the board members that the right-of-way issue was being County Commission considers Wall of Fame If Gilchrist County receives development grant is in the ranking to be funded, all of the paper work, including the right-of-way deeds, and other important things will be conducts their site visit, Carter explained. --Mrs. Geneva Cornwell representing Character Council of Gilchrist County thanked the Commission for 9 years of support for the Character Council.

Due to the current economic conditions, we are asking for your help and support to ensure no child is left standing in the sale ring hearing RESALE. We are diligently soliciting any and all funds available through our local businesses and generous residents of Gilchrist County. Please see the following breakdown for this years show: Gilchrist Exhibitors Feeders: 28 Fat Steers: 48 Hogs: 85 As you can see, there is a major obligation to Gilchrist County to provide Buyers on behalf of our children. Over the past several years, two or three individuals have gone around door to door, doing mail-outs and making phone calls on behalf of our children. Their dedication to this community and our children is much appreciated. It has always been the philosophy of the Boosters to try to support ANY and ALL children in need from Gilchrist County. This year, in order to ensure the success of the fair boosters, we need your help. We are currently out raising money and the fair is quickly approaching. For Gilchrist County Fair Boosters to be able to move forward and continue to aid each child in need, we feel the need to employ your help. This year, again, due to the current state of the economy, we are requiring exhibitors and/or family members to assist the Booster Club in raising money. For you (or your child) to have the Booster Club consider bidding on your animal, you must raise at least the minimum amount as follows: Fat Steer: $ 100.00 Feeder Steer: $ 75.00 Hog: $ 50.00 Please understand the Booster Club is in no way trying to exclude anyone from receiving assistance, but your help is needed to enable us to continue to purchase animals for Gilchrist County exhibitors. If you already have buyers lined up for your animal, you do not have to participate in the fund-raising efforts. Finding your own Buyers is highly encouraged as the Booster Club is not able to purchase everyones animal. Please contact one of the boosters below with questions, comments or to turn in your collec tion. Thank you for your time and attention. We look forward to hearing from you.

The parking lot at BeefOBradys was bursting at the seams with cars, every seat inside lined up in the parking lot waiting to eatall for one reason. To be a part of Team Lane. Throughout the evening, various teams from all over the tri-county varsity cheerleaders bounced in to show their Indian spirit as they joined Team Lane. Dixies varsity softball players showed up with their Bear pride to join Team Lane. The varsity football team from Mayo waited an hour before getting a table, just to be a part of Team Lane. Coach Whitt and his family joined to represent Bell High School. THS football players came out to support their teammate, along with the varsity cheerleaders, baseball players, and track team. Go Team Lane!! But it wasnt only sports teams that became part of the team. From County Commissioners to our Congressman, from Cross City to Newberry, from those who stopped in to eat to those who couldnt stay so they called in a to-go order, everyone came and joined. When Lane arrived with his family, he was amazed and touched at the degree of support he received. For three hours, he greeted and thanked everyone personally for being there. And he put a face to the team of which we are all now a part. According to Mark Swain, owner of BeefOBradys, this was the largest Spirit Night they have ever had. Estimates put the number of meals served at over 350. Although the normal protocol for Spirit Night is for them to donate 10%-15% to the Spirit Night host, as a part of Team Lane, they chose to donate 20% which totaled over $800. Then, with the generosity of all those who came out as part of Team Lane, a donation bucket spontaneously began. With the addition of those funds, we were able to raise over $2000 for Lane! It was truly proof of the unique heart of small town America. We saw beyond school colors. We saw beyond political parties. We saw beyond economic status. We saw beyond ourselves. We saw a chance to make a difference. We became Team Lane. And it is perfect timing. Next week, Lane is scheduled to begin physical therapy in Jacksonville. As he faces the challenges of pushing himself beyond the limits his body is setting, he can go forward knowing that Team Lane, representing all of the Tri-County area, is behind him.

In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate and timely tax return. Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property 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 income. 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. 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. 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 Property Appraiser's Office. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a return? A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, fill out items 1 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. If I am no longer in business, should I still file the return? A. Yes, if you were not in business on January 1 of the taxing year, follow this procedure: 1) On your return, indicate the date you went out of business 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. What is an office or field review assessment? A. When a tax return is not filed by April 1 we are required to place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents an estimate based on the value of business with similar equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your responsibility to file an accurate return. 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. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. Q. HELPFUL HINTS AND SUGGESTIONS File the original return with this office (with name and account number preprinted), as soon as possible before April 1. Be sure to sign and date your return. Work with your accountant or C.P.A. to identify any equipment that may have been "Physically Removed". List those items in the appropriate space on your return. If you have an asset listing or depreciation schedule that identifies each piece of equipment, attach it to your complete return. Do not use vague terms such as "various" or "same as last year". It is to your advantage to provide a breakdown of assets since depreciation on each item may vary. Please include your estimate of fair market value and the original cost of the item on your return. They are important considerations in determining an accurate assessment. Additional information regarding filing is provided in the instructional section of the return itself. If you sell your business, go out of business, or move to a new location, please inform this office. It will enable us to keep timely, accurate records. To inquire for more information about Tangible Personal Property please contact: Damon C. Leggett Gilchrist County Property Appraiser 112 South Main Street, Room 138 Trenton, Florida 32693 (352) 463-3190 1-800-219-3208 Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is responsible for the taxes? A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient property to satisfy the taxes due, the owner on January 1 would be responsible for the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a business. You should therefore consult your realtor, attorney or closing agent to avoid problems in this area. Q. What if I receive more than one tax return? A. All returns must be sent back. If you have more than one location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return. Q. What if I have old equipment that has been fully depreciated and written off the books? A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or not, all property still in use or in your possession should be reported. Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan, rent, borrow or are provided in the rent? A. Yes, there is an area on the return specifically for those assets. Even though the assets are assessed to the owner, they must be listed for informational purposes. Q. Is there a minimum value that I do not have to report? A. No, there is no minimum value. A tangible tax return must be filed on all assets by April 1. Q. If I rent my furnished home or condo for a few months, do I have to file a tangible personal property tax return? A. Yes, since rental activity is of an income producing nature, you must file a return which lists your personal property. Items that should be listed include: Draperies, furniture, appliances and any other personal property included in the rental unit. Q. Are there deadlines and penalties? A. The deadline for filing a timely return is April 1. After April 1, Florida Statutes provide that PENALTIES be applied at 5% per month or portion of a month that the return is late. A 15% penalty is required for unreported property, AND A 25% PENALTY IF NO RETURN IS FILED. $25,000 Tangible Personal Property Exemption In order to receive this new exemption, you must file a Tangible Personal Property Return by April 1, unless an exemption has been granted. Tangible Property Return shall be considered an application for the exemption and will be applied to the first $25,000 of assessed value for the TPP account. March 3, 2014 Notice To: Kyle D.
