"You Can Make A Difference"


By Jim Senterfitt
In the summer of 2001 Herbie
Br. .in. ,Jr. asked me if I would
be interested in telling the di-
rectors of the Suwannee River
Fair & Livestock Show & Sale
what I knew about the organi-
zation and early history of the
association. I met with the
board at their September 2001
irLc'i,, and iliey asked me to
write summary of what I knew
that could be used to com-
memorate he celebration of the
show and sale's -;(' anniversary
that was held in March 2002.
Having accepted the chal-
le-np,. John M. ALers. II gave
me access to the files of the Gil-
christ County Journal. That's
when the blast began. John
gave me free run of the place, a
p[ia, to work and jll'wed- Chris
to do my typing as I have to
write and rewrite everything
freehand. I real', did have a
ball -,ir.lhinjr the files back to
1949. I uncovered all kinds of
news reminiscent of my stay in
Gilchrist County too numerous
to begin to mention here.
As I look back on the forma-
tive years of the development
and organization of the Suwan-
nee River Fair and Livestock
Sales, it gave me an insight as to
the tremendous amount of inter-
est and participation by the


Jim Senterfitt

communities of the Tri-County
area of Levy, Dixie, and Gil-
christ counties. There were
hundreds of businesses, civic
clubs, schools, newspapers,
legislators, government offi-
cials, individuals, and family
groups that have, and continue
to, financially support the youth
and the association.
Men like Senator and Editor
J. Min Ayers; local business-
man, farmer and State Repre-
sentative Hal Lancaster; farmer
and rancher Clyde Colson, and
sons Billy and Frank; Frank and
Forrest Beach; and Gordon
Love in Gilchrist County.
Then there was State Repre-


sentative Hal Chairs, a cattle-
man of Old Town and.a pioneer
family member of Greene
Chairs; L.L. Barber; G.W. Bodi-
ford; and Oscar Harrison from
Dixie County. Heading the list
from Levy County was the for-
mer State Senator G.C. Perdue
Sr. of Chiefland; L.W. Drum-
mond, President of Levy
County State Bank; George
Baker, prominent timber and
cattleman of Williston; and
newcomer Ralph Hipp, Sr.,
prominent businessman and
rancher that introduced short-
hored beef/dairy breed of cattle
into the Suwannee Valley.
The local weekly newspapers
gave tremendous support and
coverage. The Chiefland Citi-
zen, owned and published by
Jack Holland, The Gilchrist
County Journal, owned, edited
and published by J. Min Ayers,
and continues to be a strong
supporter under the flagship of
John M. Ayers,-Jr., Editor and
Publisher; O.K. Jones, of the
Dixie County Advocate; Editor
Elton Cobb, of The Levy County
Journal; and Frank Weaver,
Editor and Manager of The
Williston Sun, gave tremendous
support and coverage.
I am bound to leave some
very deserving and hard work-
ing people out. In fact, you

Shoreline Restoration
Workshops To Be
Held At Poe Springs
Park
The Alachua County Envi-
ronmental Protection Depart-
ment, in partnership with Cur-
rent Problems/Adopt A River
and the Extension Office of
Wetlands Water Quality, will be
sponsoring three shoreline res-
toration workshops at Poe
Springs Park outside of High
Springs. The dates are February
17th, February 26"',, and March
9'h. All will run from 8:00 a.m.
until 4:00 p.m. Workshops will
consist of a morning classroom
session,, followed by an after-
noon session consisting of on-
the-ground restoration work.
Each workshop scheduled will
target a different audience, one
of which will be directed to the
waterfront property owner,
while the other two will be
geared to extension agents,
public works and other agency
staff, public land management
personnel, and the like. How-
ever, the general public is wel-
come to attend any of the work-
shops offered. Registration is
somewhat limited, and you
much register by January 31,
2005. Attendees are asked to
bring a shovel with them.
These workshops are free of
charge, and lunch is provided.
The intent of the workshops is
to foster future restoration in
other locations around the re-
gion, raise awareness among our
citizens about the need for
healthy riparian ecosystems, and
provide the education and
hands-on experience of restora-
tion methods for others to use in
their professional and.personal
endeavors. The hope is to begin
to reverse the trend of natural
shoreline destruction. Heavily
vegetated riparian zones are
necessary for the protection of
water quality, .water quantity
and wildlife habitat, prevention
of erosion and sedimentation,
flood control and flood damage
prevention, economic savings
and income opportunities, and
quality of life issues.
We urge governments and
agencies to send members of
their staffs to learn about the
importance of shoreline vegeta-
tion and methods of restoring
degraded sites. The workshops
are appropriate for parks' staff,
public works employees, land
management people, land use
planners, policy makers, resort
owners, and tourist facility em-
ployees, landscapers and
groundskeepers, as well as the
private property owner espe-
cially those owning waterfront
property. Those working under
NPDES program requirements
will find the workshops very
useful to their work and plan-
ning, too.
Dr. Mark Clark of IFAS Ex-
tension will be conducting the
workshops and directing the
restoration work. Dr. Clark has
a wealth of knowledge, and he
is an excellent speaker. Every-
one attending is bound to learn

High School Youth Charged With

Murder Of Williston Man


By Cindy Jo Ayers
A lifelong Williston resident,
Jacob Howell Jackson
Langworthy, 18, was shot last
Wednesday afternoon at around
3:00 p.m. and died hours later at
Shands at the University of
Florida. Langworthy lived just
south of Williston, past the
Williston Golf & Country Club
on East Levy Street.
Berny Serrano, 17, of
Williston, was, arrested on
Thursday, January 6th on
unrelated burglary charges. He
was later charged with armed
robbery, grand theft, and first-
degree murder.
On Wednesday the Levy
County Sheriff's Office
dispatch received a call at 3:12
p.m. When the investigators
arrived, a relative was at the
home. She reported to the
officers that upon her arrival she
saw a young black man running
from the residence. The relative
yelled at the fleeing youth
asking him what he was doing.
The relative had gone to
Langworthy's home to check on
him because he had called in
sick and didn't go to work. He
worked with his grandfather
Duncan McCallum in the
mobile home set-up business.
Jacob was rushed to the
hospital by EMS and it was
determined at Shands Hospital
that he was in critical condition
from a gunshot wound to the
back of the head. Langworthy,
died on Thursday, January 6t.
Residents in the area said they
saw a maroon car with a green.
trunk or hood. Following the
lead of the car, investigators
were able to locate several


Berny Serrano


young men who might have
been involved. They were
given' information that Berny
Serrano, who went by the street
name of "New York" was
involved.
Before investigators could
arrest Serrano at Williston High
School, the school resource
officer, Grant Sandlin, contacted
the investigators telling them
that he had three young men
who wanted to give a statement.
The investigators went to
Williston High School and took
brief statements from each. The
fifth young man involved was
later arrested. They admitted to
getting together and planning to
rob Langworthy at his home.
They called Langworthy and
made sure he was home before
driving out to the residence.
Serrano and one of the other
boys went inside and were later
joined by the other boys in the
home. They demanded drugs
and money from Langworthy
who repeatedly told them he


didn't have either. While
Langworthy was escorted
around the house at gunpoint,
several other members of the
group started collecting the
items they were planning to
steal.
Once Langworthy's relative
arrived the youths started
leaving the area and one of the
young men tried to get Serrano
to leave and he said he couldn't
leave until he was finished. At
this point he was holding the
victim at gunpoint. The last
youth fled and as he ran out of
the home he heard a gunshot
coming from inside the
residence.
Serrano has admitted to the
murder. At this time the gun
has still not been recovered.
Serrano has been charged with
one count of first-degree
murder, home invasion and
armed,.robbery. For the first-
degree murder, no bail will be
set, and for the robbery charges,
a $1 million bond was set. He
is currently being held at the
Levy County Jail.
Also arrested were Kenny
Gross of Williston, D.O.B.
10/86; Courtney R. Grant of
Williston, D.O.B. 8/88; Michael
A. Hill of Williston, D.O.B.
11/86; and Theophilus D. Lee,
Jr. of Williston, D.O.B. 2/88.
They were all charged with
home invasion and robbery with
a firearm. Bail of $250,000 was
set on each one. They are all in
the Levy County Jail at this
time.
Due to the nature of the
crimes, all are charged as adults.

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
This past week I have heard
several people explain how
successful or lucky they have
been on catching fish recently.
These past few days, as we have
experienced some very warm
weather for this time of year, I
have heard of some really nice
catches of speckled trout being
caught in the Big Bend area
from Shired Island north to
Pepperfish.
Last week when I talked
with Brad Smith of Smith &
Lancaster GMAC Real Estate,
he explained that he and a friend
had caught and released over
150 trout. He went on to say
the bite was so good that the
fish would actually hit a jig
hook with.just a small piece of
rubber bait left on the hook.
On Tuesday I had the
pleasure of talking with Mr. C.
D. Moore and he told me a fish
tale about him catching good
legal redfish near Suwannee.
He explained that the redfish in
this particular spot were really
abundant. He saw many fish
tailing with a portion of their
fins and tails out of the after r as
the t':i.ere feeding. in.sh.iloiv
\ater near an o3 ter bar.
This lime of year, as the
trout and the redfish have
already begun moving up into
the mouths of the creeks and
area rivers, it is surprising when
a warm front comes by and
sends the temperatures up above
700 for several days. This type
of weather often puts the fish
back onto the flats and out in
the areas where an abundant
source of food can be found.
I haven't had the opportunity


to fish since before Christmas. I
talked with Dr. Robert Vaughn
last week and he had taken a
group of friends out to 65 feet
off of Steinhatchee. He
explained that the pink-mouth
grunts and black fish were
abundant, but the size of these
fish were smaller than what they
had hoped for. Dr. Vaughn
went on to say that they caught'
some grouper, but the size of
these fish were also under the
limit.
Fishing this time of year is
hit and miss, but any time you
get a chance to fish, it is always
better than having to work. If
.you get a chance to get out on
the water, slow down and enjoy
Sthe outdoor experience.


Faith provides a soft pillow
for weary worriers. Leave your
cares in.the hands of God.

distribution, of food baskets

needs people in reniote areas
who could' not come and pick up
the baskets themselves.
The advice which John gives
to others who are wanting to ac-
quire the quality of
AVAILABILITY, is "put God
first, then the Holy Spirit will
guide you. Simply watch for


i times when others are in need
and then assist, or contact
someone who can help, if you
> can't." Mr. Arthur uses the
Scripture verse from Isaiah
40:31 as his prompter in re-
vealing AVAILABILITY:
"Those that wait upon the Lord
shall renew their strength, they
shall mount up with wings as
eagles; they shall run and not
grow weary, they shall walk and
not faint." John has found that
by claiming that verse as his
own, he can do things that he's
never learned or gone to school
for.
Before the interview ended,
John's parting words to this
author were, "The 'Gilchrist
Volunteers' are always looking
for a few good men and women.
The group meets every first
Tuesday of the month at 7:00
p.m. in the Sheriff's Office
Training Room." If you are in-
terested, please feel free to

Corporal Chad Holmes was
looking forward to returning to
North Carolina in a month after
completing his second tour in
Iraq. Corporal Holmes' tour
was cut short on Sunday morn-
ing when a car bomb was deto-
nated by terrorists as his Hum-
vee approached it.
Corporal Holmes, 26, who is
a Chiefland native, was on pa-
trol with three other infantry-
men. They were in a line of ve-
hicles as Holmes' Humvee
reached the car where .the car
bomb was planted. It was deto-
nated by remote control.
Glyn Holmes, Chad's father,
said on Tuesday that Corporal
Holmes had undergone surgery
in Baghdad, then was flown to
Germany where he has had ad-
ditional surgery on his left leg.
His left femur has apparently
suffered great damage and the
surgery required pins..
Corporal Holmes called on
Monday and talked to his
mother, Pam. It was reported
that he was in good spirits and
was looking forward to being


transferred to Bethesda, Mary-
land in the near future. After
his evaluation at Walter Reed
Naval Hospital, his father be-
lieves he may be transferred to
Camp LeJeune, North Carolina.
The three other infantrymen
who were traveling in the Hum-
vee with Corporal Holmes also
received injuries. They were
minor injuries sustained from
shrapnel and they have returned
to their unit.
Mr. Glyn Holmes said, "I'm
thrilled that my son will be
coming home, this was his sec-
ond trip over there." Mr.
Holmes went on to explain that
Chad had completed three years
of his four-year tour of duty on
December 15t.
Chad is a graduate of
Chiefland High School. He is
the son of Glyn and Pam:
,Holmes,.of Chiefland. and the.
brcother'o' Natalie Holmes

The Mercy Of God
(Kent Heaton)


He was sitting by the road begging when he
heard a great multitude of people coming by.
When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he
cried out, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on
me!" The compassion of the Son of God called
him forth and Bartimaeus was healed of his blind-
ness. (Mark 10:46-52) "Have mercy on me," he
cried. Bartimaeus was blind and by his faith in
the unseen Jesus of Nazareth, he believed that
his darkness could be taken away. He knew that
what he needed was the mercy of the "Son of
David." He pleads for mercy and found the sav-
ior granting his request.
Mercy is the kindness bestowed upon those in
need. It is not based upon the worth of the indi-
vidual nor upon the station of life as given by
men. Mercy is the kindness of God upon a crea-
ture that is undeserving of this blessing. Barti-
maeus knew he was blind and he knew he needed
mercy to find favor in the presence of Jesus. All
men are like Bartimaeus but fail to see their blind-
ness. "For all have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God." (Romans 3:23) The Pharisees
asked Jesus, "Are we blind also?" Jesus had
healed the man who was blind from birth and
they rejected the miracle. Jesus replied to them,
"If you were blind, you would have no sin; but
now you say, 'We see.' Therefore your sin re-
mains." (John 9:40,41)
The mercy of God is His kindness to heal our
blindness without our deserving it. Sin blackens
our lives. We struggle with the battle between
the carnal and the spiritual. Paul fought this bat-
tle with great difficulty and cried out, "O
wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me
from this body of death?" (Romans 7:24) The
power of sin invades every part of our life and we
fight with great diligence the overshadowing in-
fluence of Satan's repulsive work. Even in our
sin, God finds mercy upon us.
In tie early days of the earth, filled with every


imagination of wickedness man could create, the
record says, "But Noah found grace in the eyes of
the LORD." (Genesis 6:8) Noah was not a per-
fect man but he found the mercy and grace of God.
The eyes of the Lord beheld the life of Noah and
in love extended grace and mercy. The Lord looks
down upon our lives and from his vast storehouse
of mercy, takes away our blindness. Only God can
do that and Bartimaeus knew that only Jesus could
take away his blindness.
In obedient faith, Bartimaeus put aside his gar-
ment and came to Jesus. A remarkable feat for a
blind man to rush through a crowd but his need
was great and his faith was guiding each step. In
our sin we must put aside the doubts and the sin
that shackles our hearts and come to Jesus with
faith. Obedience is required for mercy. Noah was
obedient and received the full measure of mercy in
his salvation from destruction. Bartimaeus was
obedient and received the full measure of the mer-
cy of Christ in his healing. In our obedience, we
will receive the full measure of God's mercy in for-
giveness. "If we confess our sins, He is faithful
and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us
from all unrighteousness." (1 John 1:9)
The blessing of mercy is found in the washing
away of our sins in obedience to Christ. (Acts
22:16; Mark 16:15, 16; Acts 2:38) Mercy is given
each day of our lives as God looks down and
knows our weakness and sees our struggles. Paul
answers his own question when he says, "O
wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me
from this body of death? I thank God-- through
Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, with the mind I
myself serve the law of God, but with the flesh the
law of sin. There is therefore now no condemna-
tion to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not
walk according to the flesh, but according to the
.Spirit." (Romans 7:24-8:1) How great is the
blessing of God's mercy!

started telling them what she re-
quired them to do but this did
not work out because she was
telling them to do things such as
sing songs when they could not
sing. What do you suppose
happened? Was the parade a
success?
The book for junior readers is
one of the "Unfortunate Event
Series" and the title is The Mis-
erable Mill written by Lemony
Snicket. This series is about
three children, a brother and his
two sisters, who are sent from
one place to another which was
almost always undesirable.
The adult book is one of those
that I could not put aside. I was
so eager to find out what would
happen next. The Quiet Game
by Greg Iles has its setting in
the deep south during the civil
rights problems but the writer
very skillfully extended the plot
to include government officials.
Hope to see you at Bell Li-
brary soon to check out these
new novels and to see what else
we have received. A shipment
of 1,000 books came in recently
and many of these will be ap-

Everyone is trying to get back
to normal after all the holidays,
company and traveling. So
many have the flu or whatever
it is and it seems to take a long
time to get well. We hope they
all will be back with us soon.
Lois Fink went to Texas and
got in the snow but our
weather now is really Florida
weather.
Quilting goes well on the
quilts and we will put in an-
other one soon. We have
picked out a bright quilt for the
Watermelon Festival. It has
lots of red in it to represent all
the melons that will be ripe by
June. We already see many
fields that will be planted soon.


Martha Asbell wanted a red, white and blue quilt and
this is it. It's a "Churn Dash" and very colorful.
Martha also crochets beautiful table cloths and
bedspreads.

KidCare Health
Benefits Available To
Uninsured Florida
Children
Florida families with unin-
sured children can now apply
for affordable quality health
coverage through Healthy Kids.
A 30-day open enrollment pe-
riod for the state-subsidized
health insurance program began
on January 1, 2005 and will
continue through January 30,
2005. Children enrolled in the
program receive regular doc-
tor's visits, immunizations and
dental appointments at a
monthly premium their working
parents can afford.
Under new guidelines just
approved by the Florida legis-
lature, families need only sup-
ply one document verifying
their income. Uninsured chil-
dren 18 years of age and under
who do not qualify for Medicaid
are eligible for the program.
"We are working hard to get
the word out to families with
uninsured children that coverage
is available through Healthy
Kids," said Florida Chief Finan-
cial Officer Tom Gallagher
during a press briefing in Talla-
hassee. "We've made it easier
for kids to get insured and we
have more than 70,000 spots
available to fill the program.
The time to act is now!"
The KidCare open enrollment


period is a joint effort between
Florida Healthy Kids, the De-
partment of Health (DOH), the
Department of Children and
Families (DCF), and the
Agency for Healthcare Admini-
stration (AHCA).
In the first nine days of open
enrollment, 22,836 applications
were received at the Healthy
Kids office in Tallahassee. Ac-
cording to Healthy Kids Execu-
tive Director Rose Naff, this
high volume is the most ever re-
ceived in the history of the pro-
gram, however, it's slightly be-
hind their goal of 25,000
applications a week necessary to
fill the program. To accommo-
date this record-setting pace of
applications being received,
Naff told reporters there are
more phone lines and Healthy
Kids personnel available to help
parents enroll their children.
"We can take applications by
mail, fax, and email,".Naff said.
"We have 268 phone lines open
and 198 customer service repre-
sentatives standing by to walk
parents through the open en-
rollment process. Our goal is to
make sure every uninsured child
in Florida has access to this
program."
Applications for open enroll-
ment are available on the Inter-
net at www.healthykids.org/
application/ or families can call
1-888-540-KIDS (1-888-540-
5437) to receive an application

also available at DCF service
centers, most hospitals and
some doctor's offices. For more
information on where families
can obtain an application in
their community, log onto
www.healthykids.org.
During the 30-day open en-
rollment period, parents must
complete a one-page application
form, attach a copy of their most
recent federal income tax return
and send it to Healthy Kids be-
fore January 30, 2005. If the
parent is unable to provide their
tax return, they may send wages
and earnings statements or pay
stubs.
Healthy Kids coverage will
begin when eligibility has been
determined and the full pre-
mium amount has been re-
ceived. The amount of each
premium is based on household
size and monthly income. Most
families pay either $15 or $20
per family per month; however,
some families may pay more.
Healthy Kids can only accept
applications received between
January 1 and January 30, 2005.
Applications received after this
open enrollment period cannot
be processed.
Florida Healthy Kids is a
public-private partnership cre-
ated by the Florida Legislature
in 1990 to provide comprehen-
sive, affordable health care cov-
erage to previously uninsured
children in Florida.

Foreign Teens Need
Your Help
Pacific Intercultural Ex-
change (PIE) is looking for
loving families to host high
school students from many dif-
ferent countries for the coming
school year. The students will
begin arriving in January to
spend the coming semester or
school year with a caring host
family while attending the local
high school.
There is no such thing as a
typical host family! Whether
you are a single parent, retired,
have small children, teens or no
children, you can have a great
experience hosting an interna-
tional teen!
The students are prescreened,
speak English and look forward
to learning about our culture
while teaching us about their
country. They have medical in-
surance and their own spending
money to cover such things as
clothing, school supplies and
entertainment. Host families
provide a loving home, meals
and a place to study. Host
families are not paid, but may
be able to claim a $50.00 per
month charitable contribution
on their income tax.
It is only through the kindness
and generosity of families in
communities like ours that these
young teens will be able to ful-
fill their DREAMS of spending
a year as an American. Please
open your heart and home to
one of these teens by inviting
them to become a member of
your family.
Bring the world to your door-
step. Call PIE today at 888-
PIE-USA-1 or the regional co-
ordinator at 877-534-3144. PIE
is a non-profit educational orga-
nization.

1st Annual Bell High
School Volleyball
Game Huge Success
On a very cold night back in
November, the BHS alumni
volleyball players heated things
up in the gym. There were 26
past players who divided up and
played the best two out of three
games. The highlight of the
evening came during the en-
trance of the "Older, More Ma-
ture Alumni" when they entered
dressed as grandmas and passed
out baby bottles and sippy cups
to the "Younger, Less Experi-
enced Alumni" team. The eve-
ning was a major crowd pleaser
with dozens of door prizes, T-
shirts, water bottles, kid's ac-
tivities and crowd involvement.
No mention will be made of
who the winning team turned
out to be.
A huge thank you to everyone
who came out and watched and
to all of our sponsors for their
support who were Brad Smith,
Bruce and Julie Thomas, Sheriff
David Turner, Meghan Wooten,
and several area businesses.
Approximately $500 was
raised for the volleyball pro-
gram at Bell High School. A'
very special thank you to Mrs.
Janice Grant Beach for offici-
ating. She did a super job and
was recognized for her many,
many years of dedication in
coaching at Bell High School.

GREETINGS
From my collection of post-
cards comes this 1940s' one ti-
tled "Home Folks to Service
Men." I'm sure many of our
soldiers fighting for our country
now would appreciate such
cards as this to brighten their
life a bit. Let's keep on praying
and supporting all our service-
men and their families wherever
they may be. They are our he-


roes... as all our veterans are.

It is always possible to be
thankful for what is given
rather than to complain about
what is not given...
Elisabeth Elliot

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Jean Ben-
son (75) of Waccasassa Lake on
January 13th; to Rosie Coats of
Waccasassa Lake, Nancy
Shroeder (25) of. Trenton and


Snowflakes are such fragile
things, but look what happens
when they stick together...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Planning moon shots long be-
fore the development of space
centers, John L. Riddell, a New
England resident, was Amer-
ica's first writer of space travel
science fiction stories. Rid-
dell's first space story concern-
ing a lunar shot was written in
1847, two decades before Jules
Verne wrote of similar happen-
ings.
No matter what may be your
lot in life, build something on
it...

RIB TICKLERS
"Daddy; do all fairy tales be-
gin with the words 'Once upon
a time' ?" the little girl asked.
"No," he replied. "A whole
lot of them begin with the
words 'If elected, I promise.'"
American Legion

Clearly I wasn't winning the
battle of the bulge on my own,
so I decided to join a gym, 'Be-
fore you start working out, 'we
like to do a health assessment,"
explained the gym representa-
tive. "When you come in, wear
loose-fitting clothing."
"If I had loose clothing, we
would not be having this con-
versation."

The dying penny pincher told
Shis doctor, lawyer and pastor, "I
have $90,000 under my mat-
tress.
"At my funeral I want each of
you to toss an envelope with
$30,000 into the grave." And
After telling.them this, he died.


At the funeral, each threw his
envelope in the grave. Later,
the pastor said, "I must confess.
I needed $10,000 for my new
church, so I only threw in
$20,000."
The doctor admitted, "I
needed $20,000 for new equip-
ment at the hospital, so I only
had $10,000 in the envelope."
"Gentlemen, I'm shocked that
you would blatantly ignore this
man's final wish," said the law-
yer. "I threw in my personal
check for the full amount."

Stormy weather diverted our
Dallas-bound flight to another
airport. A we approached the
runway, the pilot came on the
intercom: "For those of you
who are not familiar with the
area, this is Lubbock, Texas."
Then he paused. "And for
those of you who are familiar
with this area, I think this is
Lubbock, Texas."

Wit is the key, I think, to
anybody's heart. Show me the
person who doesn't like to
laugh and I'll show you a per-
son with a toe tag.
Living in the past is a lot of
fun... besides it's cheaper...

THE COOK'S CORNER
Turkey Pie
2 cups diced cooked turkey
2 cups mashed potatoes
1 cup stuffing
2 cups gravy
Arrange turkey and mashed
potatoes in alternate layers in a
baking dish. Top with stuffing
arid pour gravy over all. Bake
at 350 degrees for 1/2 hour.

A wise man changes his mind,
but a fool never does...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
A little vanilla poured on a
piece of cotton and placed in the
refrigerator will eliminate
odors.

Ideas are funny little things...
they won't work unless you
do...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
God Shows His Love In
Many Ways
When hearts are heavy and hope
grows dim,
Tears may fill our eyes,
SBut today sorrow\ could be
,, Blessing in disgise-.,
We cannot know what lies
ahead,
But we serve a loving God,
And we always find beside us
His footprints in the sod.
There are no limitations
On what our God can do,
And He does not turn away
When earthly friends are few.
When we come into His pres-
ence,
True healing can begin,
For He will send a comforter
To make us whole again!
God shows His love in many
ways

Navy Seaman Recruit

Navy Seaman Recruit Ken-
neth C. Alexander, brother of
Christina R. Boyette of Bell, re-
cently completed U.S. Navy ba-
sic training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, Illi-
nois.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, Alexander completed a
variety of training which in-
cluded classroom study and
practical instruction on naval
customs, first aid, firefighting,
water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety.
An emphasis was also placed on
physical fitness.
The capstone event of boot
camp is Battle Stations. This
exercise gives recruits the skills
and confidence they need to
succeed in the fleet. Battle Sta-
tions is designed to galvanize
the basic warrior attributes of
sacrifice, dedication, teamwork
and endurance in each recruit
through the practical application
of basic Navy skills and the core
values of Honor, Courage and
Commitment. Its distinctly
"'Navy"' flavor was designed to
take into account what it means
to be a sailor:-.

Here's Elaine Nemeth showing off some of the great table

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well, what can I tell you
about winter weather in North
Central Florida that you don't
already know, especially those
of you who have lived here be-
fore paved roads and Dollar
Generals. Living here in the
winter is like being on a five
month roller coaster ride...up
one minute and down the next.
One day you're worried.about
your pipes freezing up and
scraping ice off the bird bath
and two days later you're dig-
ging through sweaters and long
johns to find a pair of shorts that
may have escaped the annual
migration to the bottom of the


closet. Yeah, the big question
of the day is not...will they find
a cure for cancer or is there any
hope at all for world peace...no,
its what will I wear today since
it's 370 right now but it will be
in the 70s before the day is out.
I tell you everywhere you
go...restaurants, malls, grocery
stores, even churches...folks are
shedding their clothes faster
than the "girls" at We Bare All.
I grew up in the
North...Ohio, Indiana, Michi-
gan and the like. It was easy,
come September you put away
all of your shorts, halters, bath-
ing suits, white shoes, and cot-
ton dresses and they didn't see
the light of day until at least
May and sometimes as late as
June. You traded them in for
itchy wool sweaters, skirts and
jumpers and big cumbersome
coats or jackets that prohibited

even the slightest arm move-
ment. And of course, there
were, for girls, the horror of all
horrors...leggings. And I can't
forget galoshes, mittens,
scarves, hats, earmuffs, and tons
of oatmeal, hot Ralston,
Ovaltine and fried mush to for-
tify us until Spring. But it was
easy.
Here, the landscape is bleak
and bare. Most of the trees
have shed their leaves and the
grass is brown thatch as far as
the eye can see, yet it's nearly
80'. What's up with that? Of
course I'm not complaining, just
making an observation. I'd
rather not have months on end
of freezing weather yet it does
present the question of what
shall I wear today...or for the
next few hours...or?
And it was just such a day
when 20 Joyful Hearts met on
Wednesday, January 5, 2005. It
was so good to see one another
again and catch up on all the
happenings that had taken place
over the holidays. Two of our
dear members, Alberta Swanner
and Surena May, have both had
surgery recently and I am glad
to say that both are making a
speedy recovery and doing quite
well. I'm sure that all the
prayers, on their behalf, were of
great help and all the glory goes
to God and all God's people
said, "Amen."
On a more somber note, two
of our Joyful Hearts, Alberta,
Swanner and Elaine Nemeth, as
well as a dear friend, Cindy
Williams, all suffered the loss
of a loved one and we continue
to offer up prayers for them and
their families. I continuously
mention that it is such a bless-
ing to have wonderful, caring
friends on a daily basis, but es-
pecially in times of sorrow.
And, it is such a special blessing
to know that God has a plan for
us all and that He will never
forsake us. And in the end
where can we turn but to the
Lord?
Our first meeting of the year
is always the one when we
make our calendar and plans for
the year...which we did. It took
up most of our time, but some
folks, mainly Swedish weavers,
were able to stay on task. And
once all of the business was
taken care of, Santa's elves
went straight to work on taking
down decorations..,which for.
me is always kinda sad. But
none-the-less, in little or no
time, each bright and shiny
thing had been tucked away to
be awakened next December.
For the most part nearly eve-
ryone talked about "really" get-
ting organized this year. And
the funny part is... we really be-
lieve that we will. We talked
about getting healthier, being
less stressed over life in general,
managing our time and money
better, and finishing all those
unfinished projects lurking in
the back of our closets and
minds and it all sounded so do-
able...ift there is such a word.
Well, we'll see if it's just wish-
ful thinking or if we're really
ready for an extreme make-
over.

Kamp showed off a darling pot-
pourri wall hanging that we de-
cided to make at our first "Make
It and Take It" day in January.
And Elaine Nemeth showed us
a beautiful butterfly that we're
going to make later on toward
the Spring. Ann Mangone
proudly displayed the highly
creative and beautifully finished
quilt she created as a tribute to
her husband Mike's service to
his country in the military. We
will have a picture shortly but it
most definitely is a fair winner
for next year. Way to go Ann.
After lunch we gathered up
our bags of crafts and such and
made our way home carrying
with us the warmth and love of
dear, dear friends and the
knowledge of how truly blessed
we are.
We whined so much about
the hurricanes we went through
this summer but it pales in the
face of the horrific devastation
and loss of lives in the wake of
the most recent disastrous tsu-
nami. Our hearts go out to
these people in such desperate
need. Whether we acknowledge
it or not, we are all God's crea-
tion and His children.
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, January 19th at 9:00
a.m. at the North Gilchrist Fire
Station on CR 138. And don't
forget the fire department's
pancake breakfast and spaghetti
dinner both on Saturday, Janu-
ary 15th. Come out and support
your community and get ac-
quainted with your neigh-
bors...it's a good thing. And
remember...Be kind and com-
passionate to one another, for-
giving each other, just as in
Christ, God forgave you. Ephe-
sians 4:32.
Until next time,
A Joyful Heart

4 Pets Sake
Before I write another word I
want to apologize for not re-
sponding sooner to a lady who
came to my place of employ- ,
ment Monday seeking our help
or information. In trying to
finish a job I misunderstood the
message I was told about a
pregnant pet and I did not speak
with her because I got there too
late and she had already left. I
don't know how to right a wrong
but if we can assist ou no\w or
in the frture please'6ufitact us.
We wish we could personally
hug each and every one who
was responsible for making the
4 Pets Sakes auction so out-
standing. Jean and Jim Troke
caught on fast to registering
people, keeping tickets in order,
and all the extras. It was their
first time of volunteering for 4
Pets Sake. Melanie Bryant, also
a first-timer, fit right in and
David Barber knows his way
around the kitchen when it
comes to cooking. We hope
these first-timers will become
old-timers with us. Ara and
Paul Bryant, now there's a cou-
ple. Paul was running mer-
chandise to and from and Ara
was gathering items for the sale.
She also did a good job on the
silent auction. Teri Darling did
a fine job in the kitchen. As a
matter of fact she and David
made a great team. Pat Baum
kept selling those tickets for
Wal-Mart and Home Depot
cards. Wish this whole world
could be filled with more people
like her. What can you say
about Warren Emenecker who
visits the businesses for dona-
tions? Nice work. Col. Paul
Malphrus from Sweet Briar
Auctions, the best auctioneer
around and his wife Jean, we
thank you for all you have done.
Deb McCarthy can work just
about any position in an auction.
We could not have done it with-
out you.
Oh, by the way we did collect
$2,547 total from the auction

The Application
Process For FEMA
What should an applicant ex-
pect when calling the Depart-
ment of Homeland Security's
Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) 800
number to apply for disaster as-
sistance?
Applicants will reach an
automated recording and will be
asked to select English or
Spanish. Once the selection is.
made the actual application
process begins. Callers will be
advised to have paper and pen
available for taking notes. They
will then be asked:
What is the ZIP code
where the damage oc-
curred?
Then, because the same call-
in number is used to follow-up
on a caller's application status
,they will be given options. Op-
,tion 1 will take them to the reg-
istration process. They will be
.advised to have the following
;information available:
* The date the damage oc-
curred.
The caller's Social Security
SNumber.
The address of the damaged
property.
An address and telephone
Number where the applicant
can be reached, to receive
FEMA information and/or
to set up an appointment for
an inspection. (An inspec-
S tor will call within 7-10
days to set up an appoint-
ment.)
Estimated family income.
Insurance information.
3i County where the damage
took place.
I Applicants will be given a
eseven-digit registration number.
.This number and the Social Se-
surity Number become the
means of identification, when
calling in to report changes in
the caller's information or to re-
quest status on their case.
SOnce the operator has all the
abo %e information and based on
fthe information provided by the
applicant, mainly income, dam-"
-ages and insurance, the caller is
gi'en information about FEMA
,programs and other possible as-
sisstance available. Some of
:these programs may be based on
:the specific needs identified
t.* *


during the interview.
A copy of the application and
a copy of "Help After a Disas-
ter, Applicant's Guide to the In-
dividuals & Households Pro-
gram," will be sent to the caller.
They will also be sent letters
explaining any assistance being
provided or why they were not
eligible for certain types of as-
sistance.
Based on each applicant's in-
formation they may also be
mailed a loan application from
the U.S. Small Business Ad-
ministration (SBA). Informa-
tion provided on the loan appli-
cation helps determine what
type of additional assistance is
available, including grants.
Often applicants will be for-
warded directly to an SBA em-
ployee for more information
about the low-interest loan pro-
gram.
Applicants may also register
online at the FEMA website
http://www.fema.gov by click-
ing on the red "hot-link" button
in the upper right-hand portion
of the page marked "Register
for Disaster Assistance Online."
Floridians who experienced
damage or loss from the four
2004 hurricanes are urged to
call FEMA's toll-free teleregis-
tration number, 800-621-FEMA
to register before the February
28, 2005 deadline. The TTY
number is 800-462-7585 for
speech- or hearing-impaired.
These numbers are in operation
7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. EST..

would have to include half the
people from all three counties to
recognize everyone.
The Honorable Nathan Mayo,
Florida's Commissioner of Ag-
riculture played a tremendous
role in providing the arena that
sets on the fair property today,
and it was through our leader
Herbert Brown, Sr., Trenton
FFA Advisor, that made the
contact with the commissioner.
Hog & Hominy To Cattle &
Forestry
The Suwannee Valley was in
an economic transition stage of
development from Hog &
Hominy to Beef Cattle & Pas-
tureland and Forestry. People
had already begun to upgrade
their beef cattle herds with
purebred American breed and
Brahma bulls.
Another factor that probably
had a tremendous influence in
helping to bring about a change
in the agriculture industry was
Florida's 1948 Fence Law re-
quiring livestock to be fenced
off from Florida highways and
right-of-ways.
That was a big issue between
rural Florida and Florida's
tourist industry. As the story
was told a tourist was traveling
south on U.S. 19 in Taylor
County and hit a cow on the
highway. The tourist was ex-


tremely upset about the damage
to his car and no one claimed
ownership of the cow. The
tourist, not to be outdone, called
then Governor Fred P. Cone
with his complaint. Governor
Cone expressed his condolence
for the inconvenience the tourist
had experienced, explaining that
cows have the right-of-way in
Florida. "Did you kill the
cow?" the governor asked. The
tourist realized that he was
about to get into a deeper pre-
dicament than he already was
and quickly replied, "No Sir, the
cow got up and ran off into the
palmettos." So goes the story.
Watermelons were and still
are an important cash crop.
More emphasis was placed on
peanuts as a cash crop espe-
cially with farmers having an
allotment for growing of pea-
nuts. Discovery and develop-
ment of Pensacola Bahia and
other highland perennial grasses
developed by agricultural re-
search IFAS and disbursed from
SCS plant material centers and
local Soil & Water Conserva-
tion Districts. There was a
strong demand for seed, and
plant materials as pastureland
was being expanded and planted
to accommodate the growing
population of beef cattle.
With this kind of economic
promise and the communities
becoming more aware of the
need to upgrade and improve
the native cattle herds, interest
from all areas and walks of life

became acutely aware of the
need and desire to provide
greater opportunities for area
youth with learning, training,
and exhibiting livestock, an up
and coming industry.
Since the early 50s Suwannee
Valley agriculture and industry
has continued to make rapid
changes. Gilchrist, Dixie, and
Levy counties have grown at a
rapid rate from farms to
ranchettes. In the 90s, the dairy
industry flourished in the Tri-
County area, making a tremen-
dous impact and demand for
green feed. Corn, silage, and
grain sorghums have brought
back no-till farming and irriga-
tion to provide the strong de-
mand by dairies for green feed
and silage. Once sparsely set-
tled, the Suwannee Valley has
doubled and even tripled in
population in some areas. Rid-
ing through the countryside at
night is like seeing the country-
side light up with white Christ-
mas lights.
Dedication
I think about the five Ag
teachers and veteran Ag teach-
ers that met at the request of the
Senior Vocational Agriculture
teacher at Trenton, Herbert E.
Brown Sr. We met for the pur-
pose of discussing ways that we
could work together to improve
the community. Realizing that
the team was not complete, we
invited County Agent Harry

Department Of
Homeland Security
Announces
Assistance To
Firefighters Grants
To Aid America's
Fire Departments
Florida Receives $262,350 to
Assist Local Fire Departments
in Latest Round of Grants
Secretary Tom Ridge recently
announced 88 grants to fire de-
partments throughout the United
States in the 29th round of the
Fiscal Year 2004 Assistance to
Firefighters Grant Program.
Over the next several months,
approximately 8,000 awards
worth nearly $750 million in di-
rect assistance to firefighters
will be given to fire departments
throughout the country, demon-
strating Homeland Security's
commitment to ensuring that
America's firefighters have the
resources they need to protect
their communities.
Included in the announcement
of this latest round were awards
for two communities in Florida.
"President Bush and I
strongly support the critical
mission of our nation's fire-
fighters. Through these funds,
we will ensure that our nation's
emergency responders have the
equipment and training they
need to respond to all hazards,"
said Secretary Ridge.
"We recognize the impor-
rance of the Fire Act Grants to
our nation's fire departments
and we will continue to work
closely with the fire service
community to meet their needs,"
added C. Suzanne Mencer, Di-
rector of the Office for Domes-
tic Preparedness (ODP).
This 29"h round of grants pro-
vides $9,159,942 to help local
fire departments purchase fire-
fighting equipment, fund fire-
fighter health and safety pro-
grams, enhance emergency
medical services programs, and
conduct fire education and pre-
vention programs.
The Assistance to Firefighters
Grant Program is administered
by the Department's Office for
Domestic Preparedness in coop-
eration with the Department's
United States Fire Administra-
tion.
"The Assistance to Firefight-
ers grants represent a major ef-


and year out, carry out yeoman
duties in planning, organizing,
and arranging the annual pro-
gram. They are Cindy Jo Ayers
and Michelle Crawford.
Closing Gratitude
I owe a tremendous debt of
gratitude to John M. Ayers II,
Chris Rogers, and all of the Gil-
christ County Journal staff, the
board of directors for the SRFL
Association, and Forest Beach,
one of organization's charter
members. To Herbert Brown,
Jr. (Herbie), for his personal
knowledge and support. With-
out his help I would not have
been able to assemble and dis-
sect the past history with the ac-
curacy that has been accom-
plished in recording the early
history of the Suwannee River
Fair and Livestock Association.
These stories that were pub-
lished in The Gilchrist County
Journal have been preserved by
laminating the newspaper copies
and will be bound with a spiral
book cover through the courtesy
of now retired Property Ap-
praiser Ray Harrison and the
present officer Damon Leggett,
and John M. Ayers, II., Pub-
lisher of The Gilchrist County
Journal.


fort by the federal government

fighters continue to have the ba-
sic capability they require to do
their jobs, improve safety and
save lives," said David Pauli-
son, Administrator of the De-
partment of Homeland Secu-
rity's United States Fire
Administration.
On March 1, 2003, the Office
for Domestic Preparedness be-
came a part of the Department
of Homeland Security. The
Homeland Security Act of 2002
(Public Law 107-296) desig-
nated ODP as the principal fed-
eral agency responsible for the
preparedness of the United
States for acts of terrorism, in-
cluding coordinating prepared-
ness efforts at the federal level,
and working with all state, lo-
cal, tribal, parish, and private
sector emergency response pro-
viders on all matters pertaining
to combating terrorism, includ-'
ing training, exercises and
equipment support. To support
this mission, ODP administers a
number of programs that pro-
vide a wide array of support to
our nation's emergency prepar-
edness and response commu-
nity. For more information on
ODP, please visit the Website at

ministration (USFA) is a divi-
