IF IT ARRIVES LATE, PLEASE CONTACT YOUR POSTMASTER. By Carrie A. Mizell The Gilchrist County Commissioners dont want to raise the millage rate, but if county departments dont decrease their budgets they may have to. 15, the commissioners expressed their desire for the county to remain With the ad valorem rate currently at 8.2695 mills, estimated total revenue for the 2014-15 budget is is the estimated total expenditures for the 2014-15 budget, $28,402,257. Weve got to hold the line on spending, Commissioner John Rance Thomas said. Im not in favor of raising the millage rate. Commissioner Sharon Langford agreed saying, If were going to keep the same roll back rate, weve got to do something. Weve got to ask our departments to decrease their budgets. be a tight budget year with increased retirement rates and health insurance, so they asked department heads to not request new expenses. Despite the warning, several departments have asked for staff raises and new vehicles in 2014-15. The hospital costs for Gilchrist County inmates is currently at $84,136 this year, as of July 9, explained Gilchrist County. As the number of inmates continues to increase, county costs of medical expenses will be in 2014-15. Detention and Corrections at the Gilchrist County Jail is one area of the budget which the Gilchrist County Commissioners opted to leave as is. Projections for the 2014-15 budget show operating expenses jumping from $320,000 to $392,000. Commissioners anticipate a possible increase in catastrophic inmate medical insurance, which is unknown at this time, as well as an increased number of inmates housed in the Dixie County Jail. Gilchrist County Animal Control Supervisor Erica Hudson came before the Board seeking an additional $31,500, that includes: $3,000 for surgery equipment, $3,500 for a portable cat kennel and $25,000 for a half ton pickup truck. Hudson said Animal Controls primary pickup truck has 200,000 miles on it and required $3,500 worth of transmission repairs last year. Its just a matter of time before it stops on me, Hudson said. Animal Control also has a larger, one ton pickup with less miles on it, that employees are trying to use more. Commission Chair D. Ray Harrison, Jr. advised Hudson to pamper the half ton pickup truck and try to make due with the one ton truck with fewer miles this year. Gilchrist County Administrator Bobby Crosby said cost of the cat kennel is estimated at $3,500 and its possible that the funds to purchase it may be available in this years budget. Ultimately, the Board opted to cut the truck that was proposed and keep the surgery equipment/portable cat kennel for $3,500. If Hudson is able to purchase the cat kennel in the 2013-14 budget then she can purchase surgery equipment next year with the $3,500 and if not then she can get the cat kennel next year. When asked which of these two items was the most important, Hudson did not hesitate to say the cat kennel. The Board also discussed spending $5,000 in 2014-15 for electrical service for campers to hook up at the Gilchrist County Agricultural Complex (Rodeo Arena). According to Crosby, several of the entities who rent the facility have asked for camper hook ups. Projected revenue for 2014-15 is $5,000 and the expenditures are thought to be $12,000. Commissioner Sharon Langford was not in favor of spending the $5,000 to set up 10 to 12 hook ups. Whereas, Commission Chair D. Ray Harrison, Jr. said the county needs to try to improve the facility to make it more enticing to potential renters. Commissioners Kenrick Thomas and Todd Gray agreed. You have to spend money out there to make money, Harrison said. In 2013-14, revenue at the rodeo arena was at $2,667, as of May 21, 2014. In that same time period, expenditures were listed at $9,327.18. The Gilchrist County Commissioners will hold their next budget workshop on Thursday, July 17 at 1 p.m. in the Boards Meeting Facility, which is located at 210 South Main Street in Trenton. the Clerk of Court, Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collector, Property Appraiser and the Sheriff will be on hand to discuss their budget requests. Other departments, including code enforcement and veterans services, will also be discussed at this workshop.

Thank you, Richard Fuller Richard Fuller announces candidacy for County Commission, Dist. 2 By Carrie A. Mizell If youve ever driven down County Road 334A, theres a chance youve seen Mrs. Mary Ann Johnson and her grandchildren rambling along in a golf cart loaded with car seats. A stay-at-home grandmother, Mrs. Johnson has recently started making tote bags, purses and aprons from feed sacks. The idea was born in March, when Mrs. Johnson attended an Easton Corbin performance at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City. Accompanied by a group of longtime friends from Zephyrhills High School, Mrs. Johnson said she noticed one of her friends was carrying a purse made from a feed sack, and she thought to herself, I could make that! After returning home to Trenton, Mrs. Johnson said she looked online for different patterns to try out. She also enlisted the help of her son, Joshua who gathered up several horse feed sacks he had. Ive always liked doing crafty stuff, Mrs. Johnson said. and the more rustic the better. Sewing is her creative outlet. While attending Zephyrhills High School, Mrs. Johnson said she took a sewing class in 9th, 10th and 11th grade. Coincidentally, her high school sewing teacher, Lillian Johnson, had also taught her mother, Mrs. Vivian Welch at Trenton High School. Now that shes retired, Mrs. Mary Ann Johnson spends her days with her grandchildren. As they play around her house, she often sits at the sewing machine. Recently, Mrs. Johnson started a Facebook page, HazBenz, where she sells tote bags, purses and aprons Clever crafter turns feed bags into totes that she sews from feed sacks, along with aprons she makes from mens shirts. Feed sack aprons sell for $8, purses are $10 and tote bags are $5. Mens shirt aprons sell for $10 as well. Mrs. Johnson is also open to custom orders if someone has a feed bag they would like made into a tote bag, purse or apron. For more information, email Mrs. Johnson at or check out HazBenz Facebook page. Mary Ann Johnson has been sewing tote bags, aprons and purses from feed bags.

A wastewater treatment plant went online last year, and now a Holiday Inn Express is trying to come to town. Though Fanning Springs has less than 800 full time residents, Mayor Cheryl Nekola describes the junction of Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie counties as a recreation destination. Not only does it have frontage along the Su wannee River, but Fanning Springs also boasts the Nature Coast State Trail, Fanning Springs State Park and Fort Fanning Historic Park, which is an important piece of local history, as it dates back to 1838 and the Second Seminole War. to Fanning, with all it has to offer; biking, swimming, running, boating, and walking, just to name a few rec reational opportunities.

The hotel would also bring 30 to 50 jobs to the area. ing with developers to bring Holiday Inn Express to Fanning Springs. They have the full cooperation of the Gilchrist County Board of County Commissioners, who also recognize to see this project move forward. This is the time of year when a cold crisp salad tastes the best. During these sweltering summer days, turning on a hot stove and cooking a big heavy meal just isnt appealing. So Im thinking cool salads to help beat back the heat. John was grilling over the weekend and I quickly made up two skewers of peeled shrimp to grill. The shrimp were brushed with olive oil and sprinkled with a little Old Bay seasoning. Once they were grilled and cooled I put them in the refrigerator until the next day, then sprinkled the cold shrimp over a large chefs salad. This was so easy and since we were grilling anyway it really was not much trouble to add the shrimp skewers. The taco salad recipe of yesterday directed the salad maker to toss all the ingredients with dressing before it was served. In an effort to update this old recipe a bit, the following recipe calls for each salad to be made individually and not dressed before serving. This method makes a much crispier taco salad. Crisp Taco Salad 1 pound lean ground beef 1 pack of taco seasoning or 1 recipe homemade taco seasoning 1 head iceberg lettuce or Romaine lettuce, washed and drained 1 16-ounce can dark red kidney beans rinsed and drained 1/2 sweet onion, sliced thin 1/2 bell pepper, sliced into thin strips 2 large tomatoes, cut into small cubes 2 cups grated Cheddar cheese 1 4-ounce can sliced black olives Corn chips of choice Brown ground beef, drain off extra oil, then add packet of taco seasoning or homemade taco seasoning, add 1/2 cup water and cook until the water has reduced. Let mixture cool. Tear lettuce into bite size pieces and divide evenly between 4 dinner plates. Sprinkle kidney beans over lettuce then top with cooled taco meat. Sprinkle tomatoes over meat, top with onions and bell pepper, then add cheese over the top and sprinkle black olives around the outer edge of lettuce. Add a good size handful of corn chips that have been slightly crushed around the outside of the plate. Serve with bottled Catalina dressing or the homemade Catalina that follows. From time to time I need taco seasoning and dont have it in the pantry. The following recipe is easy and the good news is you probably have all the ingredients in the cabinet. Homemade Taco Seasoning 1 tablespoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper 2 teaspoons cumin 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/4 teaspoon onion powder 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon black pepper optional Mix all the ingredients and add to browned ground beef for tacos or taco salad. If you like it hot add the My husband, John, is a big fan of Catalina salad dressing so this recipe never goes to waste. You can store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Catalina Salad Dressing This recipe can either be whisked together, put in large jar and shaken or put in a food processor. In the food processor, use the knife blade and start by adding the onion, which is cut into chunks (no need to grate onion if using processor), and process for a couple pulses which will chop the the ingredients and process until the dressing becomes smooth. The food processor will make the dressing smooth, more like dressing from the grocery store. 3/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup honey 1/4 cup light brown sugar 1/4 cup ketchup 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 1/4 cup grated sweet onion 1/2 teaspoon paprika 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce 1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce salt and pepper to taste Whisk, shake or process until all ingredients are mixed completely.

The Gilchrist County Commis sioners stepped in last week and ap proved a statement for easement into the property. The statement reads, Primary access to the proposed County awards bid on SE 90th Ave. resurfacing development should be across the Greenway Trails property.

Gilchrist County Sheriffs Of inmate housed by LCSO. However, the amount shall be reduced by the number of LCSO inmates housed by GCSO during the same time.

Picture an elderly father placing a hand on the shoulder of his son, a young man anxious to head out into the world on his own. Son, before you go, we need to talk So many things the father wishes to convey to this boy whom he loves more than his own life. How can he possibly warn him against every danger, the risks not worth taking, and the battles many of the struggles and dangers the young man will face will be different than the ones he survived. So, what can he say to prepare him to be a man who lives well? With this scenario in mind, the book of Proverbs becomes an entirely different read. Instead of a whimsical book of clever sayings, it transforms into the hearts cry of an aging father desperately wanting his beloved son not only to prosper, but also to avoid as many pitfalls and tragedies in life as possible. Hear the pleading of the father in these words: Listen, my son, to your fathers instruction and do not forsake your mothers teaching. They are a garland to grace your head and a chain to adorn your neck. (Proverbs 1:8-9) My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding..then you will understand the fear of the Lord (Proverbs 2:1-2,5) My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you peace and prosperity. (Proverbs 3:1-2) Listen, my sons, to a fathers instruction; pay attention and gain understanding. I give you sound learning so do not forsake my teaching. (Proverbs 4:1-2) If you continue reading, each of Proverbs begins similarly. Hear the earnest pleadings of a father, urging his son to recall what he has been taught, to make wise decisions, to avoid unnecessary dangers, and to not waste the gift of life. Like every father, no doubt some of the lessons he tries to teach his son were learned the hard way, evident by old scars and deep wounds not easily forgotten. What he would give for this young man to be protected from such things-so he urges and teaches and instructs, hoping the seeds ground. So it is with our heavenly Father! He knows that life has its share of trouble. Jesus himself told us so: In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world. (John 16:33) Indeed, he overcame the world, along with our sin, and his body carries the nail-scars to prove it. Wouldnt we be wise to hear his instruction, pay attention, gain understanding, and store up his commands in order to be men and women who do life well? Picture yourself seated at his knee and read a few proverbs. Accept His Word, and be convinced that your heart matters so very much!

THURSDAY, JULY 17, 2014 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL Page Six The History of Gilchrist County CERTIFIED FIRM Tommy Parrish 352-317-2688 PAINTING Residential/Commercial Interior/Exterior Drywall Repair CARPET CLEANING Water Restoration Services Tile and Grout Cleaning Pressure Washing While looking through an old trunk his mother had, Doug Beach found that Mrs. Edith Beach had saved a copy of The History of Gilchrist County. Mr. Beach cant say who wrote the historical account, though he suspects it was a family member. Regardless, it is an interesting account. Part I was printed in last weeks Gilchrist County Journal, the following is Part II: The citizens of the county are proud of their active social and religious life. The county is well provided with well-built comfortable churches, each having a good membership. They are 19 in number. There are three white and two black churches in Trenton, and two white churches in Bell. Small, log houses were used in pioneer days for both churches and schools. These had long seats or benches, with one wide board nailed high across the back; If not comfortable, they were picturesque, to say the least. The census of the county in 1930 was 4,137. While in 1936, it was 4,174. This period shows an increase of 3.9 percent in the white population, with a decrease of 12.3 percent in the colored population. This is explainable by the reduction of black labor and subsequent exodus, during the Depression years, as a result of abnormal shrinkage in prices of agriculture and timber products. forests were naturally made by certain wild beasts and by Indians. Because of natural advantages, the former landing place at Fanning, we believe, strong-armed red skin who was smart enough to outwit the alligators long enough to swim to the opposite noiseless rhythm over the sparkling waters and along the moss-hung banks of the Suwannee. Old settlers state that at an early period a four-horse stagecoach was, at regular intervals, transported by ferry across the river to this landing. From this point, it pursued approximately the course of the present State Highway No. 19 to Old Station Point, which was in northeastern Levy County, where the horses were changed. It is supposed that this stage hailed from Tallahassee or Fort Marks and was possibly enroute to Tampa. Since State Highway No. 19 is the dividing line near the river between Gilchrist and Levy it seems reasonable to fancy that this was originally an Indian trail. State Road No. 19 proceeds from Fanning in a southeasterly direction through Levy County. State Road No. 14 begins at No. 19 a short distance east of Fanning and runs northeast to Gainesville. A modern motor bus system traverses these highways daily, providing luxurious and rapid transportation routes through the county. State Road No. 77 from Trenton north of Bell, is not yet completed. This road will connect with State Road No. 52, running east and west through Live Oak, Branford and High Springs and will complete the splendid network of transportation routes through the county. The railroads were built to handle the vast amount of timber products railroad into the county was built in 1897 by the Seaboard Air Line, running from Alachua in Alachua County to Wannee on the Suwannee River. This served the many sawmills, cross tie operators, turpentine plants, and transported freight landed by steamboats from points along the river. The Atlantic Coast Line, running through Tyler, Trenton, Wilcox and crossing the river north of Fanning, was completed in 1907. It was constructed under contract by Wade and Bell, large operators in lumber and turpentine. There are 22 miles of this track in the county, besides spur tracks. A meeting of great importance to counties, state and nation was held on November 2, 1922, at the Farmers and Merchants Bank building in Trenton, by the County Commissioners of Alachua, Dixie and Levy counties, for on that day plans were approved Fanning, the junction of the three counties, the expense and upkeep of the bridge to be born equally by each county. This decision was reached following a generous donation by the Cummer Cypress Company of its still bridge located at Fowlers Bluff, a point lower down the river. Another joint meeting of the three counties was held on December 4, 1922. Contract for $750.00 was awarded to Frazer Thomas for supervision of all preliminary work, including the perfecting of plans which would be acceptable to the War Department, and supervision of the removal of the bridge at Fowlers Bluff to Fanning, where the piling fenders and trestle work could be used in the new bridge. The J.A. Kidd Construction Company of Jacksonville was awarded the contract to build the bridge, under the supervision of Frazer Thomas, engineer, the latter to receive 5 percent of the cost of construction. The approximate cost of the bridge was estimated at about $45,000.00. The completed bridge was accepted by the three counties in a formal meeting at Old Fort Fanning on September 27,1923 and named the, Three County Suwannee River Bridge. This marked the beginning Suwannee River in this vicinity. This bridge was of partial wood construction, was displaced by a much wider and stronger all-steal bridge built by the State of Florida Benjamin Chaires Bridge in honor of a prominent pioneer settler of Dixie County. The new bridge is very beautiful, and bears at either entrance the inscription, Way Down Upon the Suwannee River. Plans to beautify the entrance to the bridge from the Gilchrist and Levy side were made at a joint meeting of the Commissions of Dixie, Levy and Gilchrist counties on March 15,1937. This is to be done by establishing a monument and a small park. The monument is to bear the names of all present board members and clerks as sponsors of the park. A committee was appointed to procure the necessary property and to secure the aid of the State Road Department to help beautify the plot. Fort Fanning on the Suwannee River was constructed about 1836 or 1837 during the Seminole War, which began in 1835. The site of this old fort is indicated today only by an open area of ground, unfenced, which shows that it was cleared and occupied during an earlier period. Its location is approximately 200 yards north of the present Highway 19 and a short distance east of the river, north of the bridge, which would place the and hotel that now stand facing the highway. It is believed this location was chosen because of the high bluff and Fort Fanning nearby. The fort It is known that during its occupancy 31 United States soldiers died in camp there. Twenty-seven of those died of disease, one was shot, two died of wounds previously received and one drowned. No doubt all were buried near the fort site. The fort was named in honor of Major A.C.W. Fannin, a graduate of West Point. He was born in Boston, Mass. in 1788. Soon after graduation, he was in the United States Army engaged against the British. He was in Andrew Jacksons campaign in 1818. He was commissioned Major of Artillery in 1832 on account of his gallant conduct in the Battle of Withlacoochee, December 31,1835. Before the war ended he was transferred to the Canadian frontier and died in Cincinnati, Ohio on August 18, 1946. The boat landing at Fort Fanning was used until about 1907 by steamboats which plied the Suwannee River between Branford and Cedar Key, transporting freight and passengers. An interesting description of the fort is given by McQueen Chaires, of Old Town, who for over 50 years has resided just across the river, Part of the old fort was still standing 50 years ago, for I often viewed it when I was a child. It was made out of puncheon logs, with concrete or a sandy substance between the logs, and it had high portholes. I remember there had been four great 12x12 foot lightwood posts, one at each corner, which later were cut off even with the ground. The timbers gradually rotted down and people burned them up for fuel. It was north of the highway on the Gilchrist County side. During the Civil War the old fort, long since abandoned, became again a center of importance. Many hundreds of bales of cotton were stored there by plantation owners in the vicinity for safekeeping, as they could not sell the cotton. This cotton was destroyed and stolen by Union raiding parties and deserters. One black was killed while sitting on a bale of cotton. It is believed that Confederate soldiers camped there at times. An incident is told of the Steamboat Fort Fanning, supposedly by cotton thieves. Captain Dan May knocked the boards from the bottom and made his escape although his pilot house was destroyed by the shots of the marauders. His vessel was later sunk near the mouth of the Suwannee River and a small island nearby is now called Dan May Island. About 50 years ago a black, afoot was a carrier of mail from Jonesville to Alachua County to Fort Fanning. to live in the region now known as Gilchrist County was John B. Stanley, who came about the year 1840. He bought 20,000 acres from the government. He bought his slaves and cleared about 900 acres. He had two children. The son died very young. The daughter married John B. Dell of Gainesville. The old Dell plantation was later established from some of this land. In 1870 William F. Smith moved in from Levy County. He bought 1100 acres from John B. Stanley, cleared and planted about 600 acres of this just north of Trenton. He established a Christian church by the name of Joppa Church. He also established the about one mile northeast of the present site of Trenton near a place where the old water mill, known as Smiths Mill, formerly stood. S.B. Slaughter was the postmaster about transferred to Trenton. The mail to Joppa was brought out twice a week from Gainesville by a man traveling with a horse and buggy. About 1895 this was changed to a daily mail, and was delivered in the same manner until the railroad was built and took over the delivery of mail. Before the timber was cut over along the Suwannee River, there was an old settlement on the river at the Wilcox landing. When the railroad came to Wilcox landing, the name was changed to Wannee. Today all that is left of Wannee is a dot on the map. Long gone are the docks on the river, the sawmills, stores, saloons ended when the railroad was taken up for three miles, between Wannee and Bell in 1936. And yet this settlement served its destiny and made history during the Civil War. The last sawmill which operated there was under the management of Frank Finger from New York. Timber was cut from both sides of the river at times. Logs cut in Lafayette were lashed together mill. Many steamboats stopped at Wilcox Landing, among them being the Thetis, Sam Plyes, Helen Durham and Hawkinsville. Some of these boats operated until 1914.
