with a code enforcement pro-

"I use a different approach to
do my job, I try to be gentle and
explain to the people what
needs to be done," Diane Ron-
dolet told the Bell Town Coun-
cil. "I try to work with people
and help them if they show that


they are honest and trying to
improve and cleanup the prob-
lem," she added. "As long as I
see progress, I am content with
the property owner's interest,"
Diane Rondolet stated.
"If the property that I have
seen appears to be a problem, I
write the property owner a letter
and then continue with a sug-
gestive approach. If the property


owner shows no sign of coop-
eration, then I file a notice of
violation with the. county or'

hearing date is set," Diane Ron-

The Family of Sgt.
Rick Lord Requests
Commission To
Re-name SR 26 In
Memory of Gilchrist

The Gilchrist County Com-
mission was addressed by a
loved one of Sgt. Rick Lord on
Monday requesting the board
change the name of S.R. 26 to
honor the memory of the Gil-
christ County native that was
killed in December 2004 in Iraq.
Rosanna Powers asked the
board to rename the portion of
SR 26 that is in Gilchrist
County in memory of her boy-
friend, Sgt. Ricky Lord.
Board attorney John
McPherson explained that for
this action to be done, a resolu-
tion would have to be approved
by the board before submitting

The Gilchrist County
Commission was tdld on
Monday that the county's
unincorporated areas are facing
a crisis involving volunteer
firefighters to answer dispatch
calls.
Lee Sheltenbrand, a past
chief of the Spring Ridge
Volunteer Fire Department, told
the five-member board of
commissioners that there are not
enough firefighters responding
to dispatch calls in the rural
areas.
On three separate instances
in January of this year,
Sheltenbrand has responded to
dispatch calls and has been the
only one who arrived at the
scene. "This is embarrassing
and very discouraging,"
Sheltenbrand explained. He

county needs the Fire Special
Assessment to enhance the fire
service. Sheltenbrand explained
that the county needs to hire a
state certified firefighter who
can organize and train
volunteers that want to become
members of the volunteer fire
departments in the county. He
went on to explain that he was
not interested in the job, but
would be glad to assist
whomever is hired for the

Sheltenbrand also told the
board that Gilchrist County

the volunteer fire departments

Huggins, her granddad.
In May of 2001, Caitlin was a
beautiful girt in the eighth grade
with long blonde hair and big
blue eyes. She was excited
about the eighth grade prom.
Her granddad had bought her an
expensive dress. She and her
friends had endless conversa-
tions about the prom, what to
wear, with whom to dance.
When Caitlin tried on her dress,
to her amazement it was too
small. She and her friends de-
S. cided to duct tape her body al-
most like a mummy in order to
fit into the dress. Caitlin was
just a normal kid excited about
graduating and going to high
school. That summer Caitlin
was diagnosed with a very rare
form of cancer, which had re-
sulted in a brain tumor. She un-
derwent surgery, radiation and
chemo. Not just a normal kid
anymore.
In August of 2001, Caitlin
came to my office to plan her
high school education. When I
saw her she was peeling on her
arms, shoulders, legs and feet
due to the bums received from
the radiation. Her beautiful hair
was gone but her beautiful, de-
termined spirit remained. She
a was entering ninth grade and
was concerned about her credits.
I suggested we give her a light
schedule of art and other elec-
tives. I knew it would be easier
for her when she was undergo-
ing the stem cell replacement
treatments and continuing with
chemo. I also knew she had
only been given a year or two to
live. However, Caitlin had other
ideas. She told me she needed to
take Algebra because she would
need it when she returned to
school. With hesitation, I

the course. Caitlin was always
very determined to accomplish
her goals.
To my surprise in August of
2002, Caitlin returned to school
and joined the Health Academy.
The students on our campus ac-
cepted her even without her
hair. She tried out for the flag
team and made the squad. As
the flag girls were getting ready
for games, Caitlin would always
remind them how special she
was. She would say "I'm special
because I have two belly but-
tons." She was special but not
just because of the belly but-
tons. To her credit when adver-
sarial circumstances arose in the
classroom she. persevered and
did whatever it took to succeed.
Last February, a new tumor


wanted to cut and log cypress
out of the family slough at the
hunting camp, Cindy Jo and I
were pleased. I was
apprehensive regarding the
involvement of the actual
logging in the woods. Logging
is a dangerous activity, but we
were lucky, we got the wood cut
and ramped to the edge of the
slough. We were able to bring
two loads of cypress to
Chiefland last Saturday. If
everything works well, maybe
within a couple of weeks we
will get the rest of the wood on
the trailer and up to the mill.
J is blessed to have a loving
family that is willing to help and
teach him how to do all of this
himself. J will be able to cut up
this wood with the assistance of
Dave Swain on his Uncle Lloyd
Jr.'s ban sawmill.
On Saturday when we
dropped off a load of heart
cypress in Chiefland, J picked
up a pallet of pecky cypress
lumber that Dave Swain had cut
up into one inch paneling. J's
uncle, Mike Beauchamp gave
this cypress deadhead to his
nephew after the log had been
pulled from a cypress slough
near the hunting camp many
years ago.
Sunday afternoon after we
enjoyed lunch at our home, J,
Lyndsay and I stripped stacked
the pecky cypress lumber in the
back yard.
I hope J and Lyndsay enjoy
this natural wood in their home.
It is unique and truly a blessing
that they too will be able to
enjoy some of the same riches
that members of this family
have enjoyed generations before
them.


was found in the frontal lobe of
Caitlin's brain. She was given
the choice of no treatments or
stem cell replacement and a
massive dose of chemo that
would extend her life for two
more years. She chose the
treatment.
During this time, I thought I
had cancer and was waiting for
the biopsy results. I shared this
with Caitlin and she was so
concerned about me. She told
me she was glad she had cancer
but hoped I did not have it. I
was so shocked. How could
someone, especially a child, be
glad they had cancer? Cailtin
told me she was glad she had
cancer because it kept her from
making wrong choices later on
in high school.
Last year was filled with trips
to the hospital. She developed
staph infection and was in pedi-
atric ICU for many weeks. I was
sure she would die. Caitlin re-
turned to the bone marrow unit.
When I went to home school
her, I took very easy math and
reading work. With her deter-
mined nature Caitlin looked at
me with those big blue eyes and
said. "Ms. Dana I can't read,
don't bring me anymore baby'
work, do your job and teach me
to read." She did regain every-


honor. I pushed her in her
wheelchair to every classroom
on our campus. She was so
proud of her cap and gown. She
showed everyone her honor
graduate medallion. She ex-
plained to the sixth graders what
it represented. She told them if
they worked hard, they could
achieve their goals also. She in-
vited all the students to her
graduation and party. She made
a special point to always say
goodbye when we left each
classroom. Only she and I knew
that she was saying her final
good-byes to all her friends and
teachers. I took her out to lunch
so she could wear her cap and
gown and people could see her.
I think Mr. Johnson, Caitlin's
teacher, gave me closure when
he told me this story. He was
worried about Caitlin coming to
his class. He was concerned the
other students would make fun
of her because she had no hair.
When she arrived in his class-
room, the students only saw her
beautiful smile and those shin-
ing blue eyes. Mr. Johnson said
that God probably has many
concerns regarding the state of
our world. He felt God called
Caitlin home because even God
could benefit from the warmth
of her smile.

Courage
(Kent Heaton)


Aesop said, "It is easy to be brave from a safe
distance." When we are not facing the lion face
to face, it is easy to say what we would do. Our
bravery is measured sometimes by how far away
we are from the threat. The farther we are, the
braver we become. Our talk may become louder
and full of heroic deeds until we really face the
danger.
Courage is defined as "That quality of mind
which enables one to meet danger and difficul-
ties with firmness; valor; a human quality which
keeps one going in the face of opposition or dan-
ger." I like the word "valor" it has a crystal
ring to it. Valor is the medal given for those who
have shown their courage under heavy opposition
and difficulty. We honor such heroes because
they were willing to face the danger for us face
to face.
Paul wrote to Timothy and said, "Yes, and all
who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suf-
fer persecution" (2 Timothy 3:12). Paul had just
mentioned his own "doctrine, manner of life,
purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, persever-
ance, persecutions, afflictions ... what persecu-
tions I endured. And out of them all the Lord de-
livered me" (vvlO,11). The Lord was able to
deliver Paul from all those persecutions. Courage
brought Paul to the feet of the Lord to seek his
blessing and help in these times. Paul was willing
to face these trials face to face knowing that he
could do "all things in Christ."
It takes courage to live the life of a Christian.
Courage is the mettle that suggests an ingrained
capacity for meeting those persecutions with the
resolve to win the victory. C. S. Lewis said,
"Courage is not simply one of the virtues but the
form of every virtue at the testing point, which
means at the point of highest reality." The
strength of tea is found only when it is in hot wa-
ter. Our faith is found when we have to endure
the troubles of life. "Therefore being justified by
faith, we have peace with God through our Lord
Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by
faith into this grace wherein we stand, and re-


joice in hope of the glory of God. And not only so,
but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that
tribulation worketh patience; And patience, expe-
rience; and experience, hope: And hope maketh
not ashamed; because the love of God is shed
abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit which is
given unto us. For when we were yet without
strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly"
(Romans 5:1-6).
We need tribulations to make us strong. Courage
is what brings us through. Courage is the force that
brings us face to face with the lion feeling the
'breath of his anger smelling the foul odor of his
existence feeling the force of his power all around
us and yet say to him, "Satan, I reject you!" "Re-
sist the devil and he will FLEE from you" (James
4:7). Our troubles will bring about patience. Facing
the trials of life with courage will help establish
hope. The source of our courage is found in the
Spirit. We are able to continue in the face of hard-
ship because Jesus did not die for us because we
had courage but rather we were without strength
and needed courage. Only He can give us the victo-
ry!
The Japanese have a proverb that says, "Unless
you enter the tiger's den you cannot take the cubs."
Courage is the spirit that takes us to the very den of
Satan and defeats him. Daniel had courage to face
the den of lions (Daniel 6), Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abed-Nego had courage to face the fiery furnace
(Daniel 3), courage fills the pages of Hebrews 11
and the faithful of God. "Be strong and of a good
courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the
Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he
will notfail thee, norforsake thee." (Deuteronomy
31:6) "Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and
he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the
Lord." (Psalm 27:14)
Andrew Jackson said, "One man with courage
makes a majority." Stand firm in your faith before
God and Satan will fall. It will take much courage
to bear the battle cry of the forces of wickedness
but stand we must with courage in our hearts. The
victory is ours.

Trenton Rotary Club
News
By Stacey Brown
The Trenton Rotary Club
welcomed Mr. Bill Williams of
Pensacola to speak on February
7, 2005. Mr. Williams is the
author of several books, in-
cluding the one he came to
speak about, Ronnie.
Mr. Williams has a long re-
sum6 of public service including
working for the insurance com-
missioner and heading up sev-'
eral political campaigns. But he
believes that the most important
job he has' ever had has been to
spread the word about his
brother, Ronnie, and his un-
timely death due to alcoholism.
Ronnie is a book about under-
age drinking and alcohol abuse,
which happened to Mr. Wil-
liams' brother. He stated that
his brother was a star athlete in
high school and college and had
everything going for him. He
began to drink and the alcohol
took over his life. Mr. Williams
states, "Ronnie's story is of a
person who forfeited his life to
alcohol abuse that began with
casual, social drinking in high
school. After all the glory days
of college football were no
more, the curse left him an
empty shell of a man who was
convinced there remained no
real purpose in his life."
Mr. Williams' goal now is to
get the word out to young peo-
ple that staying sober and hav-
ing a productivee life is the way"
too..r. ,drra M9tt .,V.if R AW-,ti
drinking at any time. He stated
that in his experience, the
drinking problem is actually just
as bad amongst middle school
youth as it is in high school and
college. He has written this
book not to frighten young peo-
ple, but to inspire them to stay
away from alcohol abuse and set
high goals with their purpose in
life well in sight.
Mr. Williams explained to the
Rotary Club that his program is
endorsed by Rotary Interna-
tional, and that he has been
touring the southern United
States speaking about his
brother and this book. He stated
that half of the proceeds are
being directly donated to the
Rotary Clubs who join with him
to spread his message.
Mr. Williams stated he be-
lieves that everyone has a pur-
pose, a reason that God put us
on this earth. But he also be-
lieves that Ronnie's purpose
was in his death, so Mr. Wil-
liams may tell his story and
keep young people from falling
into the trap of alcoholism.
Mr. Williams and his BADM
Foundation may be reached by
calling (800) 741-2712, or by
mail at 4909 N. Monroe St.,
Tallahassee, FL 32303, or visit

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
I have been talking to family
and friends in states north of
here and it has been cold, icy,
raining and snowing. Aren't we
lucky to have this wonderful
sunshine?
Last week I left out the be-
ginning reader's book. Sorry-I
did that but I must tell you we
are getting new children's books
on the shelves almost every day
and will be needing more
shelves soon.
For this age group I will rec-
ommend The Dog That Stole
Football Plays by Matt Christo-
pher. You will have to read it to
believe how this happened.
For the junior age, the book I
read was Carolyn Haywood's
book Eddie's Menagerie. Have
you ever had so many pets that
someone accused you of having
a menagerie? If you have then
you can guess how many dogs,
kittens, fish, horses just to name
a few, that Eddie had.
The adult novel I will rec-
ommend is Patricia Cornwell's
Black Notice. Dr. Scarpetta
was certainly shocked when she
began investigated the cases.
We did get some more vol-
unteers and will now be open on
Monday afternoon at 2:00 for
your convenience.
We are getting a good re-
sponse from some of you to our
request for the return of overdue
books. If you are cooperating,
keep up the good works and if
you are not, please join us in
this endeavor.
Hope to see you at Bell Li-
brary soon.

Hear David Ring At
Trenton First Baptist
Church February 13
"You've Never Heard A
Speaker Like David Ring!"
Nationally known speaker
David Ring will be speaking at
Trenton First Baptist Church on
Sunday morning, February 13,
2005 at 10:00 a.m. You won't
want to miss the opportunity of
being blessed by hearing this
man's testimony. It will change
your outlook on life.
David was born with cerebral
palsy on October 28, 1953 in
Jonesboro, Arkansas. After
being orphaned at an early age,
David was cast about from
"pillar to post." Life seemed
worse than hopeless to him until
his relationship began with Je-
sus Christ who taught himself
respect and an acceptance of his
physical challenges.
As a nationally known
speaker since 1973, David
shares his story with over
100,000 people each year at
churches, conventions, schools
and corporate events. He has
been featured on numerous oc-
casions on The Old Time Gospel
Hour with Reverend Jerry Fal-
well, as well as other nationally
televised and radio programs.
David always'focuses on an
individuals' need to overcome
personal handicaps and. jders,,i-
Ie". '-' life s 'ne v. ho hIs not
,t ; _'If, Wl .hr'ia: t .'-:'l in'IijiJ
been stifled by hibsh" p'ys'ia
limitations, he clearly states his
challenge to everyone, "I have
Cerebral" Palsy, What's Your
Problem?" To most, physical
challenges of this magnitude
would prove to be a tombstone.
For David Ring, his coming of
age was, and remains, a mile-
stone.

Church at. 463-2038. The

Street, two blocks east of the

Trials Of Faith
Drama To Be
Presented
February 11
The venerable Apostle Paul
will step out of history on Fri-
day, February 11th and onto the
platform of Camp Suwannee's
Rumph Pavilion to re-enact his
martyrdom and bring a message
to 21st Century Christians. The
moving drama will be per-
formed by students of Corinth
Christian School, Lake City
Christian Academy, and home
schoolers of Live Oak and Lake
City. The Academy Of Arts of
Greenville, South Carolina, will
direct the student actors. Trials
Of Faith is a Biblical drama of
the Apostle Paul and a young
man named Timothy. The story
is set against the backdrop of
first century dangers and perse-
cutions.
The play, Trials Of Faith, re-
lates how Timothy, as a young
boy, learns reluctantly from his
mother that he must put away
wooden swords and win the
battle of life by faith. In a tense
but moving scene, Paul lays be-
fore Timothy all the dangers and
hardships of the ministry and
gives him three days to decide if
he wants to join the apostle in
his missionary journeys. The
young Christian does decide to
join the apostle and follows him
all the way to Rome, witnesses
his martyrdom, and then takes
up his work preaching the Gos-
pel amidst 1st Century heathen-
ism and superstition.
The Friday, 7:00 p.m. pres-
entation will be the culmination
of a week-long drama seminar
conducted by The Academy Of
Arts.
The students will receive in-
struction in stage lighting, stage
make-up, and acting. The play
will employ full Biblical cos-
tume, make-up and professional
lighting. More than 40 students
are involved in the seminar and
dramatic presentation.

Hardeetown Baptist
Gospel Sing
February 13
Hardeetown Baptist Church
invites you to a Gospel sing this
Sunday, February 13th, at 6:30
p.m. with The Southland Quar-
tet. There will be no admission
charge, but a love offering will
be taken.
The Southland Quartet is a
singing ministry borne out of
revival in 1999 and dedicated to
proclaiming the Gospel through
the medium of music, because
of a love for the Lord Jesus
Christ.
A strong desire to serve the
Lord has led them to many dif-
ferent venues, to offer hope, en-
couragement and inspiration as
they share the Gospel and God's
love during each performance.
Southland's smooth har-mony
and vocal blendings, coupled
with a varied and diverse selec-
tion of songs, make the group
appealing to audiences of all
ages.
Southland is a family group
made up of fathers, sons and a
daughter-in-law.
Keith Bradley sings baritone
and does the emceeing for the
group. Keith has been involved
in music for 25 years as a mem-
ber of a quartet and as youth
leader and music director for his
home church.
Stant Bradley is lead vocalist
as well as a talented musician.
Stant writes and composes
original material and has been
involved with music actively
since he was 16 years old.
Sharon Bradley sings alto for
the group. Her outgoing per-
sonality, love for the Lord and


singing enables her to encour-
age and uplift audiences wher-
ever Southland appears.
Jeremy Buzbee joined
Southland in February 2002 as a
bass guitarist. This is Jeremy's
first involvement with a Gospel
group and he has a love for the
Lord and gospel music and a
strong desire to serve.
Bert Buzbee joined the group
in December 2002 as a bass
singer. Bert is a talented singer
with a keen ear for harmonies.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, February 3rd at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Our year is already passing so
fast we often wonder where
the time goes. Three quilts
were put together and quilting
has been started on the green
and white "Log Cabin." Pat
Osowiecki put together her
"Basket" quilt top and B.J. put
together her king-sized "Log
Cabin" she hand-pieced with
one-and-a-half inch strips.
These two will be done at
home.
Our prayers are with Ann
and Wayne Hardee; also for
Jean da Costa as she has lost
her husband. Jean has been
with us a long time especially
when we were building the
museum. She donated money
to help buy material.
We.are looking' forward to
several quilt groups to come
over and visit. We always
enjoy seeing and talking to
other clubs as we have so
much to talk about..
The time is getting shorter to
go to the fair. We still have a
few seats and if you want to
go, call 493-2801. The cost is
$17.00.
Lunch included mashed po-
tatoes and gravy, sweet and
.sour meatballs, sweet potatoes,
cabbage, meatloaf, lots of sal-
ads and the best desserts you
could find. We had 21 present.

roll in a 55/Alive safe driving

They remain at $3.00 for the
year. In order to belong to a lo-
cal chapter you must first be a

At this time when Social Secu-

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 10, 2005


- U~SrFImmJIU__-


Shown are School Board Members Bob Clemons, Carol Hyde, Lois Fletcher and
Representative Ed Jennings on the back row. On the front row are Paula Fugel and
representatives of the Bell FFA Chapter, who provided lunch.


Representative
Jennings Visits
Gilchrist County
Schools
Career Education
Programs
In a recent visit to Gilchrist
County Schools, Representative
Ed Jennings from Alachua
County visited the Career Edu-
cation Programs at Bell and
Trenton High Schools. Mr.
Jennings has represented House


7272


District 23 in the Florida legis-
lature since 2000. He is a
member. of the Community
Colleges and Workforce Com-
mittee, Education .Council, In-
surance Committee and Trans-
portation and Economic
Development Appropriations
Committee. Representative
Jennings was instrumental in the
passage of HB 0769 in 2004, a
bill that focuses on Workforce
Education in middle/high
schools and community col-
leges.


The Trenton High. School
site-visit included the Academy
of Business Technology, Agri-
culture Education, Automotive
Technology and Construc-
tion/Drafting Technology. The
Bell High School site-visit in-
cluded the Academy of Health
Related Professions, Agriculture
and Criminal Justice Opera-
tions. Representative Jennings
talked with a lot of students,
teachers, observed classes and,
toured facilities. Students pro-
vided information about their
classes, explained why they
were interested in a particular
career field, and their future ca-
reer plans.
At the end of a busy day,
lunch was provided by the Bell
High School FFA. A panel of
students representing the BHS
Agriculture program and the
Criminal Justice Operations
program presented information
and answered questions from
Representative Jennings. The
students were very excited
about sharing the activities and

projects they were completing
as part of their curriculum.
Representative Jennings was
also presented information on
how Gilchrist County Schools
works with the local community
colleges. Lake City Community
College representatives dis-
cussed dual enrollment options
and the numerous A.S. degree
programs that career education
students can participate in i.e.
health sciences, business, agri-
culture and natural resources,
law enforcement, corrections
and graphic design.
According to Paula Fugel, Di-
rector of Instructional Support,
Representative Jennings was
very impressed with the stu-
dents and quality of the career
education programs offered in
Gilchrist County. He really
enjoyed talking with the stu-
dents and getting their input on
what is working and how they
would improve programs. Rep-
resentative Jennings told the
students at both schools that the
information would be helpful
for him as the legislature con-
siders the recommendations on
workforce education. He asked
the students if they would be
willing to share what they are
doing with others schools as
some of the issues come before
the legislature in the next ses-
sion. The student response was
very positive!


Character First!
Theme Of The
Month Is
"Deference"
By Geneva Cornwell
Showing DEFERENCE helps
a person to notice things around
them, respect the feelings of
others, by never using offensive
language or never playing loud
music in public and be being
careful how one dresses.
Choosing to avoid occasions to
not be an offense to others is
the right thing to do.
Getting down to the root of it,
DEFERENCE is the courteous
submission to the opinions,
wishes or judgments of another;
courteous respect and having
the quality of complying with
another's desires. The word
DEFERENCE comes from the
Latin word defero, meaning "to
roitnee&l' -ttspeaksioflemb&T ga
obstacles, barriers, ord,thef
kinds of hindrances. In con-
trast, the word preference comes
from the Latin praefero, mean-,
ing "to hold forth; to carry in
"front" as with a banner in front
of an army.
To insist on one's preferences
is to put his or her own "ban-
ner" ahead of everyone else. It
creates division and competition
between different groups each
promoting its own taste or style.
DEFERENCE, on the other
hand, promotes harmony by
setting aside one's own prefer-
ence so as not to offend others.
It removes the conflict of which
"banner" goes in front.
DEFERENCE is not com-
promise. When someone sug-
gests an activity that would be
illegal or immoral,
DEFERENCE holds to stan-
dards of right and wrong. The

Blue Springs 4-H
News
On January 10, 2005, the
Blue Springs 4-H Club had their
monthly meeting at the home of
Trish Stalvey. The meeting was
called to order by President Jes-
sica Stalvey. We discussed the
Suwannee River Fair coming up
March 10th through March 16th
and the county events on Janu-
ary 28th. We also discussed
having a field trip to Dudley
Farm to watch horses and mules
plow the fields March 22nd.
Chris Harding showed every-
one proper 4-H attire which
consists of a white button shirt
with 4-H patch, green 4-H
jacket with 4-H patch, black
pants and a green tie, then Jes-
sica Stalvey, Breanna Stalvey,
and Stephanie Stalvey showed
how to model clothes. Mrs.
Minnie Stalvey demonstrated
the proper and improper way to
recite the 4-H Creed. The
meeting was adjourned and eve-
ryone went outside for snacks
and beverages.
Special thanks to Chris
Harding, Jessica Stalvey, Bre-
anna Stalvey, Stephanie
Stalvey, and Mrs. Minnie
Stalvey for their wonderful
demonstrations!
Reported by:
Brittany McDaniel

tastes of a majority do not make
a wrong right. DEFERENCE
respects tastes but refuses to
compromise character, even if it
means going "against the flow."
The heart of DEFERENCE is
not offending the tastes of oth-
ers. Everyone has his or her
own tastes, often based on per-
sonality, culture, or family
background. DEFERENCE rec-
ognizes these tastes and then re-
spects them.
Respecting tastes means
avoiding activities that would
offend others. Some offenses
are obvious, such as shouting in
a library or running through a
store. Other conflicts center on
"minor" issues such as what to
eat, what to wear, or who sits in
the front seat. DEFERENCE ac-
cepts these individual prefer-
ences and yields to them.
Some conflicts, however, are
not resolved' by yielding to oth-
ers. When pressured to violate
moral standards. DEFERENCE
lds lfas t'io what. is,, right
\Wh iI eDEFERENCE yields in
matters of preference, it remains
firm in matters of truth.
Although leaders have the
"authority" to do things their
own way, DEFERENCE guards
against exercising one's leader-
ship in harsh, rude, or unman-
nerly ways. Another way lead-
ers can demonstrate
DEFERENCE is to listen to the
opinions, of those under them.
Lastly, leaders teach
DEFERENCE by their own ex-
ample. As children observe
their teachers and parents
working and living in harmony
with each other, they find a
model of how they can show
DEFERENCE, to their siblings
and classmates, which in turn
demonstrates in our locality,
most of all, that a County of
Character is a County that
Cares.

Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
SThe Post 91 Executive Committee will meet at 7:00 PM at the Canton
House Restaurant on Thursday, February 10th. The Canton House
Restaurant is located along East Wade Street ( SR-26) in Trenton. All
Post 91 Legionnaires are invited to join us at this Post 91 business
meeting. Come early, place your order and eat with us before the meeting
in an informal setting, visiting with your fellow Legionnaires.
Saturday, February 19th, is the Post 91 Roadside Cleanup date. The
cleanup will begin at 08:00 AM and should take about one and a half
hours. With enough Legionnaires there to help out, the job can be done in
a fun manner, chatting with your fellow veterans as you clean up the
section of US-129 that Post 91 has agreed to do. If you are not able to
walk the roadside, there are jobs that need to be done inside the Post
home. There are files that need to be looked through to determine if they
need to be kept or filed in the "circular file." This job involves a lot of
sitting and reading and needs to be done in order to bring Post historical
records in line. There are also minor repairs needed, mostly a little "TLC"
for the Post home.
If any Legionnaires have an interest in starting an SAL Squadron at
Post 91, contact Dean Williams with your name or the names of any sons
or grandsons that are interested. If you know any boys or men that are
interested and eligible (father or grandfather of a Legionnaire or a
certified war veteran) have them contact Dean Williams at 386-454-8143.
To commission a Squadron, ten new members,are required. Legionnaires
are eligible too. The membership for the first year will be ten dollars for a
year's membership. The SAL can work with the Post on all activities and
will be a part of the American Legion "family."
With the young people involved with our Legionnaires, there is a great
opportunity to pass on to them what America means to the veterans and
the stories of those veterans. There is a need in America to record the
stories of our veterans to get the inside story of the wars fought and the
men and women that fought them. Stories of everyday soldiers, sailors,
airmen and Marines in war and peace, of men and women who served in
the Nation's Armed Forces. To learn more about WHY did they serve,
WHERE did they serve, WHO did they serve with, and WHAT did they
do in service. America is losing Her WWII warriors at a rate of more than
1500 each day, and many of their stories are going to the grave with
them. Veterans, let's record your experiences. Leave a legacy to your
children and the children of America. Tell the story as it was so America
will not fall for the "politically correct revised war history" that we have
seen in the last few years. Tell the story of someone who was there, not a
historian that never left his house to write the story. America deserves to
hear these stories and the history in them. If you don't study your history,
you may end up repeating it.
The Post 91 general monthly meeting will be Thursday, February 17th
at the Post Home on US-129 five miles north of Trenton and about the
same distance south of Bell. The meeting will begin at 7:00 PM. Come to
the meeting and join in with your fellow Legionnaires as we serve
America in our programs, working for the veteran, our youth and our
community. Remember our Armed Forces all over this world in your
thoughts and prayers each day. Here at home, watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those called to active
duty, and help them however you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

Registration Deadline
Is March 4 For
April 9 ACT Test
College-bound high school
students can take the ACT As-
sessment on April 9, 2005, the
next national test date. The
deadline for postmark registra-
tion is March 4th. The late reg-
istration deadline is March 18h ,
(an additional $15 fee is re-
quired for late registration).
The ACT Assessment now
contains an optional Writing
STest. Some colleges will re-
quire writing scores from stu-
dents entering college in the fall
of 2006. Students should check'
the admissions requirements of
colleges they are considering
before deciding whether to reg-
ister for the ACT with or with-
out the Writing Test. The cost
ij;$28:n without and $42 'withathe!
W writing Tesz r i-v' ;ic "
Students can receive registra-
tion information from their high
school guidance counselors or
they can register on ACT's web
site at www.actstudent.org. The
web site also features test tips,
practice tests, and a database for
students to find out if a pro-
spective college requires a
writing score.
ACT scores are accepted by
virtually all colleges in the na-
tion, including all Ivy League
schools. Scores are used, along
with a student's high school
GPA, high school courses taken,
extracurricular activities and
other information to help deter-
mine if a student is academi-
cally ready for college-level
coursework.
ACT encourages eleventh
graders to examine their ACT
scores for academic weaknesses
and take more challenging
courses or receive extra help to
grow stronger in important aca-
idemic areas. The ACT Assess-
ment includes four tests; Eng-
lish, reading, math, and science.
Students who opt to take the
Writing Test will add 30 min-
utes to the three-hour normal
testing time.

Pre-K Plan Confuses
Parents
If your child will be age four
on or before September 1, 2005,
and you want your child in the
state's new pre-kindergarten
program, fill out the online
pre-registration form at
www.upkflorida.org.
This does not guarantee par-
ents a spot in a class no one
even knows yet who is going to
offer the state-subsidized
classes. This pre-registration
gets parents on the list for in-
formation only. The applica-
tions for childcare providers to
become a state-sanctioned site
went online at the same time the
parent form did at midnight
Monday, January 31, 2005.
Many providers are waiting
formore information before de-
ciding whether they will partici-
pate in the program.
It's not only parents who
don't know exactly what they're
signing up for with the Agency
for Workforce Innovation,
which is overseeing the pro-
gram, They do know the three-
hour-a-day program will be free,
with the state paying about
$2,500 per child, and voluntary
with no transportation required.
Unless the Legislature
amends the Universal Pre-
kindergarten guidelines, public
schools will have to certify that
they currently have all of the
classroom space they need be-
tl\een no" and the 2010-2011
school year, before they can of-
fer the free, three-hour-a-daN
program. Most school districts
are reluctant to provide this cer-
tification because of anticipated
growth in the K through 12 pro-
grams between now and the
2010 -2011 school year.,
Gilchrist County Schools will
continue to hold it's annual pre-
kindergarten screening program
one week in April: and one week
in May this spring. Please plan
to take your three and four year-
old pre-kindergarten children in
for this developmental'and sen-
sory screening program. You
will be provided with the latest
information about the Universal
Prekindergarten Program and
the other pre-kindergarten pro-
grams that will continue to be
offered in Gilchrist County
Schools.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY
Monday, February 14th is
Valentines Day and this young
messenger is having a rough
time delivering this valentine
gift. Actually the little fella' is
featured on a postcard stamped
February 12, 1919 from Omaha,
Nebraska with a two cent stamp
on it. The card is a bit soiled by
someone using red ink which
may have dripped or spilled on
it, but it kinda' adds to the
meaning of the greeting and it
should now read my "bleeding"
heart I send you." Regardless,.
it's a cute valentine and I hope
you enjoy it. It's quite different
than the valentines today, right?

Why is it when you're seven,
today is forever and tomor-
row never; but when you're


70, tomorrow's yesterday be-
fore you knew it was today?

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to twins Am-
ber Christine and Nicole Ashley
Scott (18) of High Springs on
February 12t'; to Robert
Thompson (54) of Waccasassa
Lake on February 13th; to
"Chucky" Williams (45) of
Tampa on February 14th...
"May all of you have a very
nice day celebrating!"
An optimist stays up until
midnight to see the new year
in. A pessimist stays up to
make suire the old year
leaves...

FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason we call exagger-
ated patriotism "Chauvinism" is
because of Nicolas Chauvin, a
veteran of the Napoleonic wars
whose patriotism and attach-
ment to Napoleon were so ex-
aggerated that he became ri-
diculous, even to his
companions-in-arms.
To know the road ahead, ask
those coming back...
Chinese Proverb

RIB TICKLERS
A client called to report an
accident and ask if her insurance
rates would go up. Our under-


writing department determines
that, I said. I then asked for her
license-plate number. Verify-
ing, I asked, "NMF? Is that N
as in Nancy, M as in Mary, F as
in Frank?"
"Well, yes," she said. "But
could you please tell your un-
derwriters that it's also N as in
Not, M as in My, F as in Fault?"
The Pastor of my church
hates to plead for money. But
when the coffers were running
low, he had no choice.
"There's good news and
there's bad news," he told the
congregation. "The good news
is that we have more than
enough money for all the cur-
rent and future needs of the par-
rish.
"The bad news is, it's still in
your pockets."
My husband wore his Army
uniform, with pride. One day,
coming home from the base and
dressed in his olive drab fa-
tigues, he stopped off at the
grocery store to pick up a few
things. While in line at the
checkout counter, he noticed a
little boy standing with his
mother. The boy took one look
at my husband in his uniform,
and his eyes grew wide. My
husband, in turn, gave the
young man a crisp salute. The
boy was so excited. He pointed
at my husband and announced,
"Look, Mom, a giant Boy
Scout."

I had just checked into the
hotel. I had to fax something,
and they told me that it -was
$7.50 for the first page and then
$1 per page after that. So I said,
"Then don't send the first
page."

"If mini-marts are open 365
days a year, 24 hours a day and
7 days a week, why do the
doors have locks on them?"

There are no shortcuts to any
place worth going...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
To remove a broken light
bulb, turn off the lamp then
press a dry sponge onto the jag-
ged bulb base and twist gently.

Trouble like the hill ahead,
straightens out when you ad-
vance upon it...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
When Sadness Falls Upon You
When sadness falls upon you
Like a blanket of snow,
Turn your eyes upon Jesus -
It's the best way to go.
The world with all its pitfalls
Can bring you to your knees,
And, stress can overwhelm you
Like a raft on stormy seas.
Anxiety can bring you down
Until you nearly die,
And friends sometimes forsake

But God will never leave you...
He's just a prayer away,
And His grace is all-sufficient
To change your life today!

Just fall upon your knees
And God will be your anchor
Upon life's stormy seas.

4 Pets Sake
Weeks ago we left flyers in
numerous places to let you
know about our services. Well,,
you responded in full-force and
we are proud of you. Because
of the tremendous amount of
calls we received we now have
scheduled our spay-neuter clin-
ics three weeks in advance.
Please bear with us for a while
until we catch up to you.
Is there anyone who wants to
do some baking for our April
23rd spring fling thing or per-
haps you would prefer to sell
the baked goods? Truth of the
matter is, we need volunteers to
work the tables and games.
Also, does anyone have a horse-
shoe game we can borrow for
the 23rd? Maybe you would
rather donate an item or two for
the yard sale for that day. If you
can help give us a call. While
I'm thinking about it, we have
the tank but we do not have the
balloons that need to be filled
with helium. Please contact us
if you know where they are
available.
I accidentally dropped one of
those fridge pack containers of
milk on the floor after taking
out the soda cans. Within a few
seconds four cats, Little Moe,
Cedrick, Baylee, and Prince
were in it and on it. After I
opened the other end, Little
Moe wiggled into and with his
head out the other end, he
scooted all over the floor.
When I returned I noticed there
were two white legs and an or-
ange tail hanging out from one
side of the container and
bush tall. and Iv.o gray leg
were sticking out from the other
side. So for entertainment foi
yourself and for your cats, treat
them to a carton, makes a great
toy. Enjoy your week.

Veteran Returns
Honor To Fellow
Soldiers
V.R. Roskam didn't know
anything about the men whose
names were stamped on the
small, thin pieces of metal. He
didn't know one belonged to a
young Marine killed by, a land
mine or that one flew off a teen-
age soldier's neck when he
jumped from a helicopter into a
firefight.
But Roskam fought in Korea,
and the way he saw it, 37 dog
tags didn't belong in a wicker
basket in some Ho Chi Minh
City souvenir stand they be-
longed in the hands of men who
lost them'fighting the Vietnam
War.
"It's a matter of honor," said
Roskam, 75. "They fell into our
hands and they need to be re-
turned to the right people."
Roskam and his wife, Martha,
came across the military identi-
fication tags on a trip to Viet-
nam three years ago. Nine tags
have been returned to soldiers or
their families, and the Roskams
are preparing to fly to Alabama
to deliver another.
The Illinois couple is among a
handful of Americans who have
bought thousands of dog tags in
Vietnam, not as souvenirs, but
to return them to the U.S. troops
who fought there in the 1960s
and early 70s. They want to
honor the soldiers whose service
was treated with indifference
and even open disdain.
"These are grown, hardened
men in their 50s and 60s, and
they're kind of in tears telling
you about being spit on and told
they were baby killers and basi-
cally ashamed of serving their
country," said Bryan Marks, a
San Jose fire captain who, along
with his girlfriend Stacey Han-
sen, has returned more than 440
tags.
"Maybe this is our little way
of trying to rectify that, make
something right out of all that
was wrong about that," he said.
The tags spoke for the troops
when soldiers couldn't tell-
ing medics their blood type and
chaplains their religion. If they
died, the one thing they could
rely on to get them home, it's
their dog tags," said Robert
Mann of the Navy Department's
Joint POW/MIA Accounting
Command in Hawaii.
"For some veterans who spent
decades trying to distance them-
selves from a painful chapter of
their lives, the gesture has trig-
gered powerful emotions.
When the Roskams went to
Jefferson, Texas, to give Denzil
Messman the tag he lost jump-
ing from a helicopter into a fire-
fight, "This big burly guy just
wept when he held it," Martha
Roskam said.
"It's kind of hard to explain,"
said Messman, a 55-year-old
retired postal worker. "Them
dog tags is a piece of your per-
son. They become you, they are
you."
But other veterans and their
families don't want any part of
the reminders. "Some are ex-
tremely bitter about it," Marks
said. "We've had hang-ups, or
guys who said it was theirs but
they don't want it, (that) they're
done with that part of their
lives."
The tags' authenticity has
even triggered some debate

The Lacks family rallied to-

story that had been so uncere-
moniously told to them. Yes, it
was true. A young resident had
taken two samples upon Henri-
etta's initial visit. One went to
the laboratory. The other sam-
ple, went to Dr. George Gey,
who, along with his wife, Dr.
Margaret Gey, was searching
for a tool (cells), to use in the
study of cancer: a line of human
cells that would live indefinitely.
outside a human body. If they
were successful, they c6uld ob-
serve and test human cells in.
ways they had never been able
to do before.
When Dr. Gey came upon the
cells of Henrietta back in 1951,
the whole world changed.
Within the test tube, cells were
multiplying as no one had ever
seen before. The walls of the
test tubes became coated with


them, and soon they consumed
the container and the medium
within.
It seemed that the cells just
kept growing thicker and
thicker, just as quickly as the
cancerous tumor had taken over
young Henrietta's life.
On the day of her death, Oc-
tober 4, 1951, Dr. Gey was
shown on national television
holding a vial of her cells. He
called them HeLa cells, and as
he held them up in front of the.
camera he proclaimed, "It is
possible that, from a funda-
mental study such as this, we
will be able to learn a way by
which cancer can be completely
wiped out." All the while Hen-
rietta Lacks lay in the Johns
Hopkins morgue, finally free
from the tortures of cancer, her
family .was told nothing about
her cells and the use of them.
Dr. Gey and his colleagues
used HeLa cells to distinguish
the many strains of polio. De-
termining the crippling strain
enabled Dr. Jonas Salk to create
the vaccine that would rid the
world of the dreaded childhood
disease, polio. Researchers
from around the world began
receiving the small tubes of
HeLa cells, protectively pack-
aged they found their way to
New York, Chile, Russia, and
the list goes on.
Henrietta Lacks may never
have ventured further than Bal-
timore, but it has been revealed
that her cells have multiplied in
spacecraft far above earth, and
have even been used from
America to Japan in nuclear
testing.
The positive and negative re-
sults of ihis story are far reach-
itg.' 'The'familvk' cf-ledriveua
LaRfE1Te"Yirvital inf~ilft~i'ont- t
garding the use of HeLa cells
without their knowledge is a
breach of humanity. While
Johns Hopkins had no policy
during the time of Henrietta's
death obligating them to share
information, they did hide pa-
tient information by coding cells
to be used with a special name.
By using the first two letters of
the first and last name,,they cre-
ated a unique way to identify
cells harvested from patients,
hence HeLa, from Henrietta
Lack.
In the last 53 years, a handful
of people had become ac-
quainted with Henrietta Lacks,
but millions have come to know
her cells. If you were vacci-
nated against polio or received
some form of medical testing,
you probably were tested with
HeLa cells. Recognition has.
been slow to come, but the sur-
viving family members have
hopes of a more responsible
world. A few plaques and cer-
tificates have been given to the
family. However, no recogni-
tion or monies have been for-
warded to the family from Johns
Hopkins.
Unable to gain contact with
any family members of Henri-
etta, I did find a teacher, Mr:
Robert Black, of Harbor City
High School' from Turners Sta-
tion, who talked with me about
the plight of the family and his
commitment to helping them
seek further recognition and
perhaps compensation for Hen-
rietta's gift. He said, "You
know, her cells are still alive to-
day and still multiplying. In the
old days, we only had the oral
tradition; nothing was ever re-
corded or written down. Re-
cords were just not kept." Even
had there been records, the
world would .have still lost that
beautiful, beaming smile, the
proud mother of five children,
and the wife of a hard-working
man. Their loss has been the
world's gain, and many human
beings live normal lives without
ever having known the pride of
Clover, Virginia who rests in an
unmarked grave in her home-
town.

LCCC Faculty
Commission Presents
Professor Of the
Year Award
By Will Benedicks,
TCC Faculty Commission Chair
Congratulations go to Paula
Cifuentes, from Lake City,
Community College, recipient
of the 2004 FACC's Faculty
Commission Professor of the
Year Award for Teaching Ex-
cellence.
Kickin' it up a notch was the
order of the day at the FACC
Faculty Commission Exemplary
Practice Presentations for the


Professor of the Year. 'Three fi-
nalists chosen at the Spring
Faculty Commission meeting at
Tallahassee Community College
vied for the honor. The winner
was selected by the five regional
judges: Region V- Dorma Got-
tlieb (MDC), Region IV Bev
Grundset (SPC), Region III -.
Gary Sligh (Lake Sumter CC),
Region II Larry Gunter (Lake
City CC), Region I Randey
Bumette (Tallahassee CC).
Special thanks go to Nancy
Myers and Laura Wilson from
McGraw-Hill. For the second
year in a row McGraw-Hill has
sponsored the Professor of the
Year Award for Teaching Ex-
cellence and provided the award
monies. Professor Cifuentes
was presented with a McGraw-
Hill $1,000 check along with
her award.
In one of the closest votes in


recent history, Paula, mathe-
matics professor at Lake City
Community\ College, edged out
the competition. Her "Show Me
the Money" presentation using
mathematics to determine the
best investments to make for the
highest dollar yield wowed both
the audience and the judges.
Professors Enid Mazzone of
North Florida Cqmmunity Col-
lege'and Melanie Wagner of
Lake Sumter Community Col-
lege were named Distinguished
Professors and received $250
checks. Professor Mazzone's
presentation was entitled, "True
Gambler" and defined the char-
acteristics of the entrepreneur
along with the benefits and
drawbacks of owning a busi-
ness.
Professor Wagner titled her
presentation "The Missing Key"
.and focused on one of the tech-


niques she uses to dispel the
myth that readers have to hold
"one special key" to be able to
effectively analyze literature.
FACC members in the packed
session room were responsive to
and appreciative of the fine
work and level of excellence
demonstrated by the three fi-
nalists. The collective opinion
was that there were only win-
ners in the room both on the
podium and in the audience.
The Faculty Commission en-
courages all interested faculty to
apply for the 2005 Professor of
the Year Award for Teaching
Excellence. The forms are
available on the FACC website,
under the Faculty Commission.
The deadline date is January
31". Each school can have
multiple applications and if you
applied previously, you can ap-
ply again..

area. The property owner can be
fined up to $250.00 a day if
they fail to cooperate with the
notice of code violation or the
hearing officer's decision.
"Out of 300 cases that I have
been involved in, I have had
five cases that I have experi-
enced no cooperation with," she
added.
County Commissioner
Randy Durden explained to the
board that Gilchrist County
,wouldlstill, offer the,)Tpwn,,pf
_BeM4nthriorginal agreementof
$1,500.00 a year for the first
year of code enforcement. The
Town of Bell could also pro-
rate this depending on when
they chose to participate in the
program. "Gilchrist County
would work with the Town of
Bell through an interlocal
agreement," Durden explained.
Town of Bell Attorney
David M. Lang, Jr. explained to
the council that they would first,
have to draft a Code Enforce-
ment Ordinance and adopt this
before the municipality could
begin code enforcement in Bell.
"Diane Rondolet is a pro-
gressive officer that is like a
thorn in someone's side, she
gets attention through a coop-
erative effort. She conducts her
work and gives the board a
monthly report," the attorney
explained. She will conduct
code enforcement the way the
town Council would like," Lang
added.
On a motion from Commis-
sioner Tommy Brown to go
forward and begin the process
to adopt code enforcement in
the Town of Bell, Commis-.
sioner Rick Carnely gave a sec-
ond to the motion. Mr. Carnley
also stated that before the Town
Council begins the Code En-
forcement Program, he would
like for the citizens to receive a
letter to forewarn them that
code enforcement will begin.
He also asked that a copy of the
ordinance be available for indi-
viduals who are cited for code
violations. The town council
voted 5-0 in favor of the action.


sion Chairman Mitchell Gentry
recommended that the Gilchrist
County Historical Society take
this request and consider it and
make a recommendation to the
board at the next meeting.
Commissioner Randy Dur-
den made a motion to give this
request to the Gilchrist County


Historical Society for the vet-
eran and historical organization
to make a recommendation back
to the board of county commis-
sioners. Commissioner Tommy
Langford gave a second to this
action. The board voted 5-0 in
favor of the motion.

hard over the summer to gather
parts and restoring the tractor.
The tractor was difficult to "de-
fine" at first. You see the A-O
tractor has a large wheel/driver
guard over the top to aide in or-
chard yard work ("O" is for Or-
chard) however, their tractor did
not come with its large guard in
tact. After some research and
'help from their instructor, Mr.
Fletcher, they knew what they
were working with and how
much work lay ahead. The stu-
dents have invested many days
and nights over the summer and
still more nights during the
school year to prepare for the
national competition. They are
not only restoring a tractor, they
are learning everything about
this tractor along the way.
As part of their competition
requirements they must present
an application for the competi-
tion. Just because they restore a
tractor does not mean they will
compete. The judges first re-
view the "application" which is

that gives details to which trac-
tor they restored, every part they
replaced and all work that was
done. All costs must be docu-
mented and they must state
what they learned during the
experience. The tractor must be
restored as "all original," just as
it would have rolled off the as-
sembly line (with minor excep-
tions for safety). All this plus
photographs of their progress
throughout the work. After all
the hard work, long hours and
sweat only ten teams will be in-
vited to participate in Indian-
apolis, Indiana in October 2005.
The money needed to pay for
such a large project comes from
one of a couple sources. If the
tractor was donated to the FFA
team, but will be returned to its
original owner after the event,
then the owner of the tractor
will pay for the parts needed.


tractor after the Bell FFA
has restored it to factory

Otherwise the FFA Chapter
must pay for the parts upfront,
and then the tractor is raffled at
the end of the events. For those
of you thinking of restoring a
tractor yourself this little project
costs an estimated $9,000. If
they win first place at Nationals
they will win $2,500, second,
$1,500 and third, $1,000. We
hope you will come out and see
the Bell FFA tractor as they
show it at various events in the
community. You can find them:
February 1'th at Avon Park,
February 23 through 25th at the
JD Southern Style at Flywheeler,
Park near Avon Park; April 1,.
and 2nd at the Steven Foster
Memorial in White Springs and
April 8'h and 9th at a tractor:
show during Alapahoochee Ma-

stance believed to be marijuana
in plain view inside the vehicle.
The baggie's contents tested
presumptive positive for canna-
bis. The driver was charged
with possession of less than 20
grams of cannabis.
On February 2nd, Officer
Kevin Hansen was on land pa-
trol in the Devil's Hammock
WMA. At approximately 4:00
p.m., he observed a truck leav-
ing the management area. Han-
sen stopped the vehicle and per-
formed a resource check of the
occupants. The two adult males
stated they had been hunting
squirrels in the management
area, but had no luck. The two
showed Hansen their hunting li-
cense and their .22 rifle and
shotgun. Hansen advised the
two that the hunting season had
been over since December 26th.
Hansen issued both men a cita-
tion for possession of a firearm
in a management area during the
closed season. After leaving the
men, Hanson continued patrol-
ling the WMA and encountered
a suspicious unoccupied pickup
with two sets of human tracks
leading away. A short time later
he located the two men unlaw-
fully digging for artifacts on the
WMA. Numerous arrowheads
and other artifacts were recov-
ered and the men were charged
with collecting artifacts on state
lands.
On February 2nd, while pa-
trolling Devil's Hammock
WMA, Officer Sam Dishman
came upon a van occupied by an
adult male and parked on the
edge of a fire lane. As Dishman
approached the vehicle, he ob-
served drug paraphernalia lay-
ing inside in plain view. Dish-
man asked the subject if he had
any illegal drugs in his posses-
sion and the man promptly
handed him a small baggie of
suspected marijuana. The man
was charged with possession of
less than 20 grams of cannabis
and drug paraphernalia.

Just A Common
Soldier
This poem was read at Mr.
Thomas Edgar "Shug-A-Boy"
Parrish's funeral on Saturday
morning and I thought it would
be good if you would print it,
A Soldier Died Today
By A. Lawrence Vaincourt
He was getting old and
paunchy and his hair was falling
fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
telling stories of the past.
Of a war that he had fought in
and the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his bud-
dies; they were heroes, every
one.
And tho' sometimes, to his
neighbors, his tales became a
joke,
All his Legiq n b~d~is is-
tened, for they knew whereof he
spoke.
But we'll hear his tales no
longer for old Bill has passed
away,
And the world's a little:
poorer, for a soldier died today.
He will not be mourned by
many, just his children and his
wife,
For he lived an ordinary and
quite uneventful life.
Held a job and raised a fam-
ily, quietly going his own way,
And the world won't note his
passing, though a soldier died
today.
When politicians leave this
earth, their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their
passing and proclaim that they
were great.
Papers tell their whole life
stories, from the time that they
were young,
But the passing of a soldier
goes unnoticed and unsung.
Is the greatest contribution to
the welfare of our land
A guy who breaks his prom-
ises and cons his fellow man?
Or the ordinary fellow who,
in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his Country
and offers up his life?
A politician's stipend and the

style in which he lives
Are sometimes disproportion-
ate to the service that he gives.
While the ordinary soldier,
who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal and
perhaps, a pension small.
It's so easy to forget them for
it was so long ago,
That the old Bills of our
Country went to battle, but we
know
It was not the politicians, with
their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
that our Country now enjoys.
Should you find yourself in
danger, with your enemies at
hand,
Would you want a politician
with his ever-shifting stand?
Or would you prefer a soldier,
who has sworn to defend
His home, his kin and Coun-
try and would fight until the
end?
He was just a common soldier
and his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should re-
mind us we may need his like
again.
For when countries are in
conflict, then we find the sol-
dier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
that the politicians start.
If we cannot do him honor
while he's here to hear the
praise,
Then at least let's give him
homage at the ending of his
days.
Perhaps just a simple headline
in a paper that would say,
Our Country is in mourning,
for a soldier died today.

SFCC Shakespeare
Festival Celebrates
Valentine's With
Lust
When Santa Fe Community
College's 9th Annual Shake-
speare Festival kicks off' on
Valentine's Day, Monday, Feb-
ruary 14th, Shakespeare won't
be in love; as much as in lust:
Shakespeare in Lust is this
year's festival theme, and in-
spires a variety of performances
dealing with, arguably, the most
prevalent and problematic of the
Seven Deadly Sins.
Festival performances begin
at noon Monday, February 14h,
in the Oak Grove on SFCC's
Northwest Gainesville Campus
and continue at various loca-
tions and times throughout the
week.
The festival climaxes with a
main-stage performance at 8:00
p.m. Saturday, February 19th in
the E-Building Auditorium on
the Northwest Campus. All per-
formances and shows are free
and open to the public.
"Lust is but a bloody fire"
(The Merry Wives of Windsor,
Act 5, Scene 5) is this year's
festival quote.
Actors from SFCC and the
community will select the hot
spots from Shakespeare's plays
that illustrate amorous pursuits,
including scenes from Hamlet,
The Taming of the Shrew, The
Merry Wives of Windsor, Rich-
ard III and Pericles, Prince of
Tyre. Saturday's finale will en-
compass all scenes that were
presented during the week.
As in years past, former
SFCC student Nolan Carey will
portray Shakespeare and serve
as the Master of Ceremonies for
events.
SFCC English professor and
festival director Rod Woehler
said the performances should
not be missed.
"This year's theme and the
fact that several members of the
faculty will be acting in these
lusty scenes makes for a very
interesting combination,"
Woehler said. "People have to
see this."
Nine years ago, retired Eng-
lish Professor Mary Ann
Linzmayer founded the Shake-
speare Festival as a "town and
gown" opportunity for students,
