Commission Hears From Public

Regarding Proposed Fire Service

Special Assessment


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist. County
Commission held another
workshop hearing involving the
proposed Fire Special
Assessment on Monday, March
7th at 5:00 p.m.
In this hearing Commission
Chairman Mitchell Gentry
turned the meeting over to Ron
McQueen County
Administrator. The
Administrator pointed out that
in this.meeting the board needs
to determine at what level is the
county willing to provide fire
service involving the proposed
Special Assessment. To what
level will this new service be
funded and will the funding
mechanism be a special
assessment. The Gilchrist
County Commission has
directed the staff to provide
information involving Special
Assessments for fire service for
six years. Over this period of
time the board has reached a
decision on approving the
Special Assessment but has not
put a level of funding to a


proposed ordinance.
McQueen explained to the
board that problems involving
the fire departments include
worn out fire trucks, inadequate
equipment and not enough
volunteers to answer emergency
calls.
At the present time Fire
Service in Gilchrist County is
funded by a 1-mill levy on ad
valorum property. At the present
time, 2352 residents in Gilchrist
County don't pay any ad
valorum taxes or revenues for
fire protection. This would
change if the special assessment
were approved, everyone would
pay something. Randall Roberts
told the board, "Everyone
should pay their fair share for
the improved service if the
special assessment is approved."
"It appears to me that fire
protection in Gilchrist County is
a low priority. I am getting tired
of fighting fires when there are
not enough fire fighters
responding to the calls. If the
fire assessment doesn't pass this
time, it will not be approved. It


always gets put off on an
election year," explained Lee
Schaltenbrand, Assistant Fire
Chief of Spring Ridge Fire
Department.
Bud Riffle, Fire Chief of
North Gilchrist Fire Department
explained, "If large land owners
don't want to be assessed for
vacant property on a per acre
bases, they should be charged a
flat fee if the fire departments
have to go onto their land to
extinguish a fire. Many people
attending this meeting showed
support for this proposal.
"I don't know a fair way to
propose this fire assessment that
needs to be approved,"
explained Commissioner
Tommy Langford. "We need a
solution that will improve fire
service in Gilchrist County," he
added.
Commissioner Sharon
Langford explained that it is
time for the county to change
the current system.

Trenton Rotary Club
News
By Stacey Brown
The Trenton Rotary Club
welcomed two very special
guests to last week's Rotary
Club meeting. Judge Edward
Philman invited Dr. Gene Sher-
ron, retired professor of infor-
mation technologies at Florida
State University and current
Centennial Assistant Governor
for Rotary International, and his
guest Godspower Mendie, a Ni-
gerian pastor whose ministry
benefits greatly from the Rotary
Foundation.
Mr. Mendie had brought a
PowerPoint presentation but due
to a computer malfunction,
wasn't able to show the slides.
Instead, he spoke of the courting
and marriage traditions in his
tribe and region of Nigeria, as
well as how Rotary Interna-
tional funds his HIV/AIDS
ministry. He explained that in
Nigeria, thereare several hun-
dred different tribes and
tongues, as well as Christian,
Muslim and Animist religious
traditions.
Mr. Mendie went on to say
that in his tribe, courtship and-

Shands Kids Benefit
Coming Soon To Bell
By Anna Wild
I would like everyone who
reads this to mark their calendar
for Saturday, March 26th, just
pencil in that you have some-
thing to do sometime between
10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. Then
that Saturday come out to
Scaff's in Bell to support the
First Annual Shands Kids Bene-
fit, where there will be lots of
food, entertainment, moonwalk,
face painting and more for the
kids, car wash, Jail-n-Bail,
bloodmobile, and the list is
added to daily. The benefit is to
raise money for Shands Kids
which helps children with vari-
ous illnesses. The money raised
locally helps our kids here in the
North Central Florida area.
When you come to Scaff's Sat-
urday, the 26'h, make sure you
shake the hand of our Bell resi-
dent Sarah Tanner, who is a 1.6-
year-old young lady with cystic
fibrosis. The Shands Kids pro-
grams has helped her and her


family cope with this disease for
many, many years.
There are a lot of worthy
charities but the Shands Kids
program is the ONE to which
the owners of Scaff's and S&S,
Inc. funnel their efforts. Lester
and Anne Scaff, owners of
Scaff's Market and S&S, Inc.,
have seen their 53 stores in-
crease their contributions to
Shands Kids from $15,902.88 in
2001 to $55,436.63 in 2004.
Over the past four years, their
stores have donated a total of
$159,275.54 to Shands Kids and
Sarah's story is just one of the
thousands of reasons why they
feel this program is so impor-
tant.
Sarah was diagnosed with
cystic fibrosis when she was six
months old. Her parents were
told she would riot live past the
age of three. They were living
in Orlando at the time and the
area only had one doctor who
specialized in this disease. Cys-
tic fibrosis is a chronic and pro-
gressive disease that causes mu-


cus to become thick, dry and
sticky. The mucus builds up
and clogs passages in many of
the body's organs. It primarily
attacks the lungs and pancreas,
but in doing so can bring on
other health problems. In
Sarah's case her lungs are af-
fected to the extent that she is
on a waiting list for a lung
transplant. Because the disease
causes so much mucus buildup
in her lungs, she coughs a lot,
sometimes violently, and she
has asthma and allergy issues
that are intensified by her lung
condition. Her pancreas does
not break down foods properly
to allow her body to take in its
nutrients; this has lead to her
also being diabetic. Luckily
Sarah's father, Wayne Tanner,
was asked to move to Bell and
pastor Bell Baptist Church.
That was when they met the
team at Shands Hospital and
Sarah received a second chance
at life.

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The future of fire service in
Gilchrist County now weighs in
the hands of the Gilchrist
County Commission.
Supporters of the proposed
Special Assessment, For Fire
Services reminded the board
that at this time several of the
volunteer departments are hav-
ing a hard time getting enough
volunteers to answer the call
when their service is needed.
SAt this time only the fire-
fighters involved in the fire de-
partments in the municipalities
receive compensation for the
service they provide.
The State of Florida, since
last year, is now requiring vol-
unteer firefighters to take certi-
fication classes that will give
them 160 hours of training.
These .firefighters are also re-
quired to take and pass a state
examination that certifies the
volunteers to be involved in
actual fire fighting.
At this time Gilchrist County
is: paying a county resident's
tuition to attend classes at the


fire college in Ocala. When the
resident completes the certifica-
tion courses to instruct fire-
fighters, the county hopes that
there will be volunteers in the
county who want to take the.
certification training.
In the Monday afternoon
meeting,the .proposed Special
Assessment For Fire Services
identified a certain level of
revenue would be generated
from the assessment on vacant
lands in the county.
Several representatives of
farm families who have large
acreage of farm land told the
board that they are not neces-
sarily against the fire service
proposal, but the revenue gener-
ated from the vacant lands
needs to be eliminated from the
proposal.
I thought the proposal that
was explained by Bud Riffle in-
volving the elimination of the
vacant land for fire service
revenue was worth further con-
sideration. Mr. Riffle, the Fire
Chief of the North Gilchrist Fire
Department explained that the
large vacant landowners can be
eliminated from the list to pay
revenue on the vacant lands, but
if the fire department ever has to

go on those lands, the property
owners would pay a flat fine on
a substantial amount.
McQueen reminded the
board that a large-scale fire
some time ago on a large vacant
landowner's property ended up
costing the county $53,000. A
portion of this money was reim-
bursed back to the county
through a state agency because
the fire was identified as an
I lj2.digt.jto..mn_m_ y. of _the
comments made by residents
both in favor of and against the
proposed fire special assess-
ment. I feel the county has up-
coming issues that need to be
identified regarding the way the
fire service is dispatched and
the protocol that is followed in-
volving sending firefighters to
an emergency. Yes, Gilchrist
County needs to find some type
of encouragement that will get
residents interested and in-
volved in the fire departments.
Bell resident, Scott Akins ex-
plained that if the county has to
pay these residents to be in-
volved, they just need to deter-
mine what each one will re-
ceive.
The question remains,
something just has to be done,
but to what level will the county
fund this necessary service?

A Letter To
The Editor
This is a response to the
"teaching" of Pastor Kent Hea-
ton, printed in this newspaper
on February 24, 2005.
Mr. Heaton left out a very
critical part of Christ's state-
ment which ended with "I will
build my church." Most Chris-
tians know enough about the
Bible to realize that it can be,
and often has been, used to back
up many wrong arguments by
taking phrases out of context.
The context of this statement
was Christ talking to Peter, and
Peter proclaiming his faith by
saying "You are the Christ, the
son of the living God." Jesus
responded by saying, "You are
Peter, the Rock, and on this
Rock I will build my Church."
Yes, as Heaton says, Jesus built
His church, but He built it using
MEN, starting with Peter, just
as God has always used 'men
throughout history to fulfill His
plans. The meaning of the pas-
sage (Matt. 16:13-20) is very
clear: Peter is. to be the head of
Christ's church on earth. Peter
was the first "Pope," and the
other apostles were the first
bishops. Every pope, bishop,
and priest down through the
centuries can trace his authority
in a direct line from Peter, the
one on whom Christ "built the
Church."
Mr. Heaton very rightly
makes the point that most Pro-
testant churches are not the
Church founded by Christ, as
they are not 2,000 years old. If
I understand him correctly, he is
saying that the Reformation
failed. On that point I would
agree also, seeing such division
in the. Body of Christ, with
20,000 different Protestant de-
nominations. But he is also
saying that HIS church is the


only one that is in line with that
original church founded by
Christ. This is wrong. I would
like to ask him: How old is the
Church of Christ denomination?
When was it begun, and by
whom?
I would challenge Mr. Heaton
to go back and study the histori-
cal records of the early Church.
What he finds there may shock
him. For example, in the late
second century, less than 200
years after the founding of the
Church, Irenaeus-one of the so-
called "Fathers of the Church"
and a bishop who converted
most of Gaul to Christianity,
wrote concerning the Church of
Rome: "With that church, be-
cause of its superior origin, all
the churches must agree, that is,
all the faithful of the whole
world, and it is in her that the
faithful everywhere have main-
tained the Apostolic tradition."
Christ did establish His church,
and it is still there for anyone
who wishes to seek it out.

Local Man Seeks
Funds For Liver
Transplant
A longtime Fanning Springs
resident who is suffering from
Hepatitis-C and is in need of a
liver transplant is seeking help
in raising necessary funding
from his community.
Larry Carter, who is a single
parent of a Chieflahd High
School student told the Gilchrist
County Journal that he has been
approved as an acceptable can-
didate for a liver transplant at
the Shands Transplant Center in
Gainesville. Because the medi-
cines needed are so expensive,
he is required to establish a
pharmacy account at the hospi-
tal in the amount of $5,000 be-
fore he is placed on the list for a
donated liver.
To help out, Drummond
Community Bank has opened
the Lawrence Carter Transplant
Fund Account, in which citizens
may make contributions to help
him. Drummond Community
Bank is located at 1627 N.
Young Blvd., Chiefland, FL
32626.
The doctors are not sure how
Carter, age 47, contracted
Hepatis--Ck 20 to 30 years ago.
.*" ,trt Q7: W .


He is at risk of dying in the next
couple of years if he does not
receive a transplant.
"Any help the community can
give me will be so greatly ap-
preciated by my son and I,"
Carter said. "God bless you."
Carter said that he is very
proud of his son, Eddie, who is
16. Larry has raised him as a
single parent for the past ten
years. Eddie has attended
Chiefland schools his entire life.
He is an honor student and an
all-star athlete.
Larry Carter is also known for
his participation in youth sports,
having served as a coach with
the Chiefland Area Athletic As-
sociation in flag football and
baseball.


A Letter To
The Editor
Wearing seatbelts is very im-
portant because they can save
lives. I know this for a fact be-
cause one saved my father's
life.
It was one foggy January
morning three years ago. For as
long as I can remember my fa-
ther never wore a seatbelt, but
on that January day he did. Af-
ter he did his routine semi-truck
inspection at 1:30 a.m., he
amazingly put on his seatbelt
and left for work. As he was
driving along the road about 40
to 45 mph, unable to see two
feet in front of him, he hit a
2,000 pound cow. On impact
the steering column broke and
he lost control of the semi. The
truck flipped two times and
somewhere during the two flips
the driver's door came open.
The semi was totaled. There
was no saving the truck. My
father made it out of the wreck
with only minor cuts and
bruises. If it wasn't for the
seatbelt, he might have been
thrown from the semi and seri-
ously injured or worse. That is
why the seatbelt is so important.
So please wear your seatbelts
people. They might just save
your life.

PUBLIC INVITED TO A GOSPEL MEETING
MARCH13-18 7:30PMEACHNIGHT
TRENTON CHURCH OF CHRIST 502 NE 7TH STREET, TRENTON

You are invited to a GOSPEL MEETING beginning Sunday at the Trenton Church of Christ, 502
NE 7th Street, Trenton. The church is located next to the Medic-Ayers Rehabilitation Center. We
have invited Bob Dickey to preach a series of lessons from the word of God. A GOSPEL MEET-
ING is a time of REVIVAL for those who enjoy an honest study of the Bible. Nothing is presented
but the simple truth of what can be found in the pages of God's word.
Can we understand the Bible together? Many feel that the Bible is hard to understand and the rea-
son for different beliefs is the Bible is too difficult to read and comprehend. We challenge that
thought in believing that honest people can come to agreement on what the Bible says. The apostle
Paul wrote in Ephesians 3:3-4, "How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; as I
wrote afore in few words, whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery
of Christ." The apostle shows the simple manner the word of God is revealed to man. He wrote
down what was revealed and he then encouraged his listeners to read what he had written down. His
conclusion was they could understand what he had written down.
Our aim during this meeting or revival is to ask two things of you: (1) Bring your Bible and your
family; (2) Open your Bible and study with us as we unfold the mind of God from His word. When
you visit you will find a warm welcome and encouragement to study the word of God. Many
churches today spend a lot of time entertaining the audience with concerts, plays and such like with
little or no emphasis upon learning what the Bible teaches. We offer no bands or play or feast but
only an honest study of the word of God.
Have you hungered for the simple teaching of the Bible? Many people are finding the veneer of
religion today unfulfilling as there is no Bible teaching. At every service of the Trenton Church of
Christ, we open the Bible and study from it. We seek to learn more and more with each occasion of
our gathering both public and private. You are hungering for the truth of God's word! We do not
suppose to know all the answers but only the answers as we can find them together in the word of
God. The wonderful power of God's message is that we study together and learn together and grow
together in the grace and knowledge of the Lord (2 Peter 3:18).
This GOSPEL MEETING is an opportunity for you to learn more about the Church of Christ at
Trenton. We hold the truth of God as the foundation of what we do and why we do what we do.
Bring your Bible, your family and your hunger to learn about God's word. You will be happily sur-
prised at how refreshing it is to study the Bible once again. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel of
Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth" (Romans 1:16)
LISTEN IN TO BIBLE TALK SUNDAY MORNING 8:00AM 101.7FM
WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU AT OUR GOSPEL MEETING

From The

Of The Bell
Library
Have you read any of the
Emma Hart Series by Barbara
Taylor Bradford? We have her
latest book, Unexpected Bless-
ings that has been on the Best-
seller List for the last few
weeks. This novel continues
with the Hart family and their
adventures and problems. Re-
member if this book is not
available when you come in, we'
will save it for you and call you
when it is returned.
Since Easter is coming soon, I
chose a beginning reader telling
about a rabbit family who was
responsible for painting Easter
eggs. The young son did not
seem interested in helping his
parents but he became so fa-
mous for his painting that he
began to paint cars, bridges, and
even flag poles.
The book I chose for the jun-
ior-reader has its setting in 2075
and three teenagers find an old
key board from a box of 'stuff"
marked 1995. Experimenting
with this they discovered if they
typed in a person's name and hit
the "enter" key, that person
would appear. What a .surprise
to bring up Jesse James, Ein-
stein and Genghis Khanm a fa-
mous warrior who had died in
1227. The only way to elimi-
nate these was to hit the "de-
lete" key. But there were prob-
lems in this Blast from the Past
by Pam Cardiff.
Using a new computer pro-
gram, we are still tracking down
o-o-verdtuebooks- and-eneouraging-
our patrons to get these returned
to the library. Many of these
are best sellers and are being re-
quested by others. So please
return them so others can enjoy
these as well.

Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
This is a busy week for Post 91. Thursday afternoon from noon until
7:00 PM, Carl and Geneva Cornwell will be at the Post so our members
and anyone that wants to donate good and serviceable items for our Flea
Market can drop them off. Thursday night at 7:00 PM the Post 91
Executive Committee will meet at the Canton House Restaurant on East
Wade Street (SR-26) in Trenton. Come early and order a meal, eat with
us and join us for our business meeting. On Friday, March 11, from noon
until 7:00 PM, Wayne Gravely will be at Post 91 so folks can drop off
donations for the Post Flea Market on Saturday. This is our first major
fufid-raiser of the year, so plan to come out to help, or to buy. There will
be games and rides for the kids, sack lunches, face painting, Gospel
music, a bake sale, plus more, all for donations and all for a good cause.
The LifeSouth Bloodmobile will be there to gather the donations 6f the
'gift of life'. Doris Cook, Unit President of the American Legion
Auxiliary, Unit 149, will be there, helping us and will have some raffle
tickets for her Auxiliary Unit as well. Come out, bring family, friends,
and fellow Legionnaires or veterans, and enjoy the morning with us. The
"doors" will open at 08:00 AM for business, but the building will be open
by 7:00 AM for set-up.
Legionnaires, bring your families with you. The intention of Post 91 is
to make this a family affair with something for everyone in the family.
The "Lil Smoky Express" will be there for the little kids to ride and the
"Sponge Bob Bounce" is another fun thing for the youngsters, along with
a "bean bag toss" game. There will be raffle prizes given away several
times during the day, items donated by local merchants. Bottled water
and cold sodas will be available if you get thirsty. The donation coffee
pot will be going early in the morning to ward off the chill. So, with all'
these things to enjoy, come out early, stay for the morning and while you
are there, pitch in and lend a helping hand to YOUR American Legion.
The Post 91 Adjutant and the Commander attended the Fourth District
Meeting last Saturday in Inverness, sponsored by the Allen Rawls
American Legion Post 77. Post 77 Commander Bonnie Trawick
welcomed the attendees and Fourth District Commander Phil Hearlson
began the meeting. The Committee Chairmen gave their reports and the
District Commander spoke on the upcoming 4th District 'Family
Reunion' a District picnic scheduled for April 17th beginning at noon at
Post 284 in Belleview. The District will provide the meat and drinks and
the Legion Family is to bring desserts and side dishes to share. By Legion
Family, that is Legionnaires, Auxiliary and the SAL. In the case of Post
91, that would be any of the ladies interested in joining the Auxiliary and
any male descendant of a Legionnaire that is interested in joining the
Sons of the American Legion. Belleview is just below Ocala on
US-301/441 and Post 284 has plenty of room, both inside and out, in case
of inclement weather. Take this opportunity and get to know more of
your American Legion Family. One Legion' 'brother', our friend Larry
White, from Post 155 in Crystal River, is slated to be Florida's next
American Legion Department Commander. And we have many more
'brothers' and 'sisters' in this big family. Let's go down and meet them.
That will be on Sunday, April 17, 2005, beginning at 12:00 Noon at Post
284 in Belleview, just below Ocala.
Remember, our Armed Forces all over this world each day in your
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and the families of those called to active duty, helping
out when and where we can.
For God and Country,

hold a marriage reception, you
have to feed everyone in the

some home, too."
When there is strife in a mar-

woman is unhappy with her
husband, she goes to her family,
who then comes to the husband
and "has a talk with him."
Mr. Mendie stated that as a

HIV/AIDS. He stated that the
Rotary Foundation helps him
with education materials and
funding to help him minister to
the sick and also to educate
people about how AIDS is
spread and how to prevent it.
The funds are also used to train
more educators in the region.

Old Men Defeat
Younger Stars In 6-5
Tie Breaking
Home Run
By Anna Wild
On Saturday, March 5th, the
Trenton High Alumni hosted a
baseball game to benefit the
THS baseball program.
Twenty-one alumni came out to
show their support and have fun
playing baseball, America's fa-
vorite pastime sport.
The evening began with the
Home Run Derby which was
won by Damon Leggett of the
"Old Team." He got a boost to
his ego when he won the hit-off
against Marty Malloy. Marty is
an Ex-Pro Baseball player for
teams like the Atlanta Braves,
Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds,
Florida Marlins and Los Ange-
les Dodgers. After his 11 years
in the pro leagues the "Old
Team" is proud to have him on
their alumni team.
The "Old Team" (graduates
of '91 and earlier) played the
"Young Team" (graduates of
'92 and later) for nine innings.
In the end, experience ruled and
the "Old Team" left the "Young
Team" crying on the field with a
6 to 5 showing on the score-
board.
Marty Malloy showed off his
skills and hit two home runs
early in the game, one being a
two RBI, home run. David Neil-
son's home run expanded the
"Old Team's" 5 to 1 lead at the
end of the seventh.
The "Young Team" showed
they still had energy by coming
back and tying up the game by
the top of the eighth inning. In
the bottom of the eighth, Robbie
Beach hit the home run that put
the "Old Team" in the lead to
win the game.
Everyone had a great time
and they were appreciative of
the folks that came out to watch
the game.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well, March certainly has
come in like a lion and we can
only hope that it will go out like
a lamb. The rain, though cold
and miserable, was badly
needed and welcomed by one
and all. However, it really sent
the shivers up and down one's
spine. The poor birds sat up in
the bare branches all puffed up
trying their best to stay warm
while visiting the bird feeders.
You could almost hear their lit-
tle beaks chattering in that dis-
mal wind and rain.
But, the up side of such a day
is that it breathed life into every
plant, tree;/shrub andblade of
grass and of course weeds as
well. Funny how a little rain
touches the earth like an artist's
paint brush, changing the black
and white landscape into a
techni-color movie. And so
Spring is that much closer to re-
vealing her beauty instead of
giving us just a sneak preview.
Everything lies in readiness.
Sleepy bulbs and seeds are
yawning and stretching in their
cozy beds. Bluebirds and
Carolina wrens are busy pre-
paring nurseries for their forth-
coming brodds that will demand
around-the-clock feeding and a
few butterflies and bees are out
and about looking things over.
The squirrels, that I haven't
seen too much of this winter,
are back and as pesky as ever.
Wouldn't you love to have the
metabolism of one of these liv-
ing vacuum cleaners? I mean
they suck down five pounds of
birdseed a day and don't gain an
ounce. If you and I ate as much
as they do there would be a
,famine in Gilchrist County.
And why the birds, especially
the jays and the mocking birds,
don't take them on like they do
dogs and cats I'll never under-
stand. But no, they all sit in the


branches waiting their turn,
which of course never comes
because the squirrels won't
budge until every last seed is
either eaten or spilled on to the
ground.
So, Wednesday, March 2nd I
filled all the birdfeeders before
setting out to meet with all the
other Joyful Hearts, and gave
the birds a little pep talk about
being more assertive.
We were missing quite a few
of our ladies due to doctor ap-
pointments, traveling, family
obligations; and what have you.
We hope to see them all at our
next meeting on March 16'h
when we will celebrate our
March birthdays. There were
only 15 of us present but we
sounded like a whole lot more.
Ann Mangone, Elaine Ne-
meth4 and 'Evelyn .Wood all
busied themselves quilting on
our club quilt. Lu Rowland,
Alice Binns, Jackie Moore,
Heidi Kamp, Cathy Strom and
Mary Lou Ryder were all fe-
verishly on their Swedish
weaving. Poor Mary Lou came
late and sporting a cane. She
has a badly sprained ankle but is
hobbling around and doing the
best she can...praise the Lord.
Cathy made a boo boo in her
Swedish weaving but figured it
would work but Alice wouldn't
hear of it. Poor Cathy sat la-
menting over each stitch Alice
removed. Al in all, it was sev-
eral rows. I said we were going
to change Alice's name from
the "Swedish Weaving Queen"
to "Alice, the Ripper" and we
all had a good laugh.
Ann Taylor continued with
her embroidered pillowcases
and Paulene Martin kept busy
crocheting baby hats for the
hospital. Geneva Carver
worked her hooked rug and I
tried to finish up a square for
our newest quilt that we're put-
ting together.
Diana Lynn worked on a
cross-stitch she started when
she was expecting her now 16-
year-old son. It was going in
the nursery. Now it's going in a
chest to wait for a "someday"
grandchild, I'll bet.
Judy brought in a lovely cro-
cheted bathroom set that she
had finished. It was white with
a beautiful lavender rose in the
center. One piece was a toilet
tissue cover and the other was a
toilet seat cover. We always
love "Show and Tell" as it gives
us many new ideas.
It seems we scarcely got
started and it was time to pack
up and settle down to lunch.
Elaine gave the blessing .and we
chatted and ate at the same time.
After lunch we made our way to
our cars shouting good-byes and

see-you-laters.
It is such a blessing to spend
this time with these women. So
many, young and old, live out
their lives lonely and often al-
ienated from others, without the
support and caring and love that
this group of women share.
I recently read a reading from
Our Daily Bread this thought-
provoking little message I'd like
to share with you. "The human
spirit soars with hope when
lifted by an encouraging
word..." Whose wings could
you be the wind beneath or do
you let the opportunity to do so
pass you by? Think about it.

GREETINGS
Back to the old post-
cards...This comic one is
stamped from Milwaukee, Wis-
consin on July 8, 1912 and was
mailed to someone in Omaha,
Nebraska. The guy on front of
the card looks like he needs a
few more drinks, doesn't he?
He evidently thinks the scale is
the clock and doesn't even see
the big clock hanging off the
pole next to him. I cant really
pity this poor guy when he fi-
nally does get home...that is, if
he ever makes it home...

Truth has only to change
hands a few times to become
fiction...
BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Allen
Dean Martin (46) of Fort White
on March 10th; to Winston
Moore (90) of Waccasassa Lake
on March 14"... "May you both
have a great day celebrating!"

Nothing is to be more highly
prized than the value of each
day...
ANNIVERSARIES
Happy 45th Anniversary to
John and Barbara Rowe of Sun
N'Fun on March 10th and to
Van and Lillian Herdon of Sun
N'Fun, who will celebrate their
53" on March 16th... "May all
of you have a wonderful day
celebrating!"
"I have another Anniversary
to brag a bit about, for on
March 8t, 26 years ago, I began
writing this column and intend
doing so for as long as I'm able
to. Once again I want to thank
all of you for supporting me all
these years."

Having politeness and consid-
eration for others is like in-
vesting pennies and getting
dollars back...

FANTASTIC FACTS
"Vaudeville" is a French
name and it comes from the
phrase chansonn du Vau de
Vire" meaning "a song of the
Valley Vire." The Vire is a
river in Normandy and in the
15th century Olivier Basselin, a
fullero-f that region, composed
a number of light satirical songs
that became very popular.

One way to be ever after is not
to be after too much...

RIB TICKLERS

Isn't wrinkled or drawn.

Doug was leaving church af-
ter Christmas services when
Father McCarthy took him
aside.
"Douglas, my son," he said,
"it's time you joined the Army
of the Lord. We need to see
you every Sunday."
"I'm already in the Army of
the Lord, Father," Doug replied.
"Then why do we only see
you on Christmas and Easter?"
Doug looked to the right and
to the left, and then leaned over
to whisper in Father
McCarthy's ear. "I'm in the
Secret Service."

One winter evening, my hus-
band and I were snuggled to-
gether watching television.
During a commercial break, he
reached over and gave my foot a
squeeze. "Mmmm," I said.
"That's sweet."
"Actually,' he admitted, "I
thought that was the remote."

On my birthday my wife
asked me, "Honey, do you feel
42?"
"No," I said, "I don't even
feel like I should be in my 30s."
"Well," my wife replied, "I
guess you're as old as you feel."
At this, our 12-year-old son,
who had been listening intently,
interrupted. "I feel 16," he said.
"Can I borrow the car?"

As my husband and I sat on
our deck one evening, I began
expounding on the blessings in
our lives. He didn't respond, so
I asked him what he was think-
ing about. He confessed he was
daydreaming about sealing the
deck and cutting the grass.
"Forget it," I huffed. "We
aren't on the same plane."
"Honey." he said,'We aren't

Making a Shepherd's Pie?
Instead of fussing with mashed
potatoes, combine a can of
cream of celery soup with milk
and frozen hash browns, then
layer that mixture on top of the
meat and vegetables. It's easy
and delicious.

QUIET REFLECTIONS
New Car
Of all the pleasures and the
thrills
that come from near and far...
Not many match the glory of
a new and shiny car.
The joy of giving up the bus
that nearly fell apart...
And getting in an auto that
is always quick to start...
It looks just like the limousines
that serve the millionaires...
And certainly it will not need
those everyday repairs.
It gives much better mileage on
the highway and street...
And every bright accessory
is just an added treat.
From streamlined top to tires
and from spacious trunk to
hood...
In style and in performance
it...is marvelously good.
By James J. Metcalfe

I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: It is
marvelous how our Lord sets
His seal upon all that we do, if
we will but attend to His
working, and not think too
highly upon what we do our-
selves...

possible changes, possible cor-
rections, possible legislation. It
is all very troubling and raises
concerns and counter charges.
This is not a good way to con-
duct business of this magnitude

4 Pets Sake
Therapy pets make excellent
listeners for young children
learning to read. As a student
informed me some time ago,
therapy dogs do not laugh at
you when you make a mistake.
He also said they do not call
you stupid or make fun of you if
you can't pronounce a word or
if the time to finish a sentence
seems to take too long.
Lucky is a certified therapy
cat that has disabilities. He
does not have a left eye, his
nose never fully developed, and
he has a cleft: palate.. Lucky
swaggers: .when, he ;walks: bre
cause of a bottom heavy de-
formed torso. Once a month
Lucky visits students at Jeffer-
son Elementary School in
Sherman, Texas and he does go
to TMC McIntire Ct. for reha-
bilitation in Denison, Texas. He
loves working with deaf stu-
dents. Some totally deaf stu-
dents can see him purr and feel
the vibrations. Donna Francis, a
teacher of the hearing impaired
in Sherman, shares her life with
Lucky.
Karen Allen, PhD, ,who is
lead author of a study that
shows pets are good for our
health states, "The findings
demonstrate that pets can buffer
reactivity to stress." Recent
studies indicate that children
exposed to cats and dogs during
their first year of life have a
lower frequency of allergies or
asthma.

the country.
A local board made up of The
Salvation Army Service Unit of
Gilchrist County will determine
how the funds awarded to the
county are to be distributed
among the emergency food and
shelter programs run by local
service agencies in the area.
The local board is responsible
for recommending agencies to
receive these funds and any ad-
ditional funds available under
this phase of the program.
Under the terms of the grant

Secretary Brown
Issues Statement For
Those Seeking To
Defraud FEMA
This statement was issued
March 4, 2005 in response to
the U.S. Attorney's announce-
ment regarding indictments
charging individuals with de-
frauding FEMA.
FEMA has received and
processed more than 1.2 million
applications related to the 2004
hurricanes that impacted Florida
residents, and is fully engaged
in ensuring that eligible appli-
cants receive the assistance they
need during the recovery proc-
ess.
It is unfortunate that indi-
viduals may seek to take ad-
vantage of the assistance meant
for those who have suffered
losses from disasters.
We commend the U.S. Attor-
ney's Office and Homeland Se-
curity's Inspector General in
their efforts to investigate those


who are found to have acted il-
legally and prosecute them to
the fullest extent of the law, and
will continue to work with them
on any cases of reported or sus-
pected fraud.

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, March 3rd at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
We want to thank the newspa-
pers in our area for all they
have done for us since October
7, 1983 when we became a
club. Terry Witt from the Citi-
zen covered us for many years
as well as Wanda Rader and
now we have Mike and Ken
who come out when we need
them. Miriam Blitch, who
works for the Levy County
Journal, is doing a great job as
well as Karen Voyles and Gary
Kirkland for the Gainesville
Sun. It was Gary who came
out in 1995, wrote an article
that we needed a log house
built and someone read it and
called Bob Busch who became
our builder and we have al-
ways been grateful for Gary.
We have kept the articles and
soon we will begin to start the
history of the museum and we
again thank The Citizen, both
Journals, The Advocate, The
Beacon and The Williston Pio-
neer.
Quilting goes on each week.
Our members from Illinois will
soon have their quilt finished
and we can start another one
for they usually quilt two
while they are here for the
winter.
Next Thursday we will have
about 40 from the Villages.
who want to come over and
visit and have lunch with us.
March and April will be a busy
time for us and we do enjoy all
the visitors.
Lunch included chicken and
dumplings, sweet potato casse-
role, cabbage casserole, fresh
bread, lots of salads and oh
such desserts. We had 29
members and visitors present.

FLOOD DAMAGE
PREVENTION ORDINANCE
BY THE BOARD OF COM-
MISSIONERS OF THE CITY OF
TRENTON, FLORIDA
FOR THE NFIP COMMUNI-
TIES
(Revised 27 January 2005)
ARTICLE 1. STATUTORY
AUTHORIZATION, FINDINGS
OF FACT, PURPOSE, AND
OBJECTIVES
SECTION A. STATUTORY
AUTHORIZATION
The Legislature of the State of
Florida, through pursuant to Chap-
ter 166, Florida Statutes, delegated
the responsibility to local govern-
ment units to adopt regulations de-
signed to promote the public health,
safety, and general welfare of its
citizenry. Therefore, the Board of
Commissioners of the City of
Trenton, Florida does hereby adopt
the following floodplain manage-
ment regulations.
SECTION B. FINDINGS OF
FACT
1. The flood hazard areas of
the City of Trenton, Florida
are subject to periodic inun-
dation, which results in loss
of life and property, health
and safety hazards, disrup-
tion of commerce and gov-
ernmental services, extraor-
dinary public expenditures
for flood protection and re-
lief, and impairment of the
tax base, all of which ad-
versely affect the public
health, safety and general
welfare.
2 These flood losses are
caused by the cumulative ef-
fect of obstructions in


floodplains causing in-
creases in flood heights and
velocities, and by the occu-
pancy in flood hazard areas
by uses vulnerable to floods
or hazardous to other lands
which are inadequately ele-
vated, flood-proofed, or
otherwise unprotected from
flood damages.
SECTION C. STATEMENT
OF PURPOSE
It is the purpose of this ordinance
to promote the public health, safety
and general welfare and to mini-
mize public and private losses due
to flood conditions in specific areas
by provisions designed to:


1. Protect human life, health,
safety and welfare,
2. Minimize expenditure of
public money for costly
flood control projects,
3. Minimize the need for res-
cue and relief efforts associ-
ated with flooding and gen-
erally undertaken at the
expense of the general pub-
lic,
4. Minimize prolonged busi-
ness interruptions,
5. Minimize damage to public
facilities and utilities such
as water and gas mains,
electric, telephone and
sewer lines, roadways, and
bridges and culverts located
in floodplains,
'6. Help maintain a stable tax
base by providing for the
sound use and development
of flood prone areas in such
a manner as to minimize
flood blight areas, and
7. Ensure that potential home-
buyers are notified that
property is in a flood hazard
area.
SECTION D. METHODS OF
REDUCING FLOOD LOSSES
In order to accomplish its pur-
pose, this ordinance includes meth-
ods and provisions for:
1 Restricting or prohibiting
uses which are dangerous to
health, safety, and property
due to water or erosion haz-
ards, or which result in
damaging increases in ero-
sion or in flood heights or
velocities,
2. Requiring that uses vulner-
able to floods including fa-
cilities which serve such
uses be protected against
flood damage throughout
their intended life span,
3. Controlling the alteration of
natural floodplains, stream
channels, and natural pro-
tective barriers, which help
accommodate or channel
flood waters,
4. Controlling filling, grading,
dredging, and other devel-
opment which may increase
flood damage, and
5. Preventing or regulating the
construction of flood barri-
ers that will unnaturally di-
vert flood waters or may in-
crease flood hazards in other
areas.

at the time of each such flood event,
on the average, equals or exceeds
25 percent of the market value of
the structure before the damages
occurred.
Substantial improvement means
any reconstruction, rehabilitation,
addition, or other improvement of a
structure, the cost of which equals
or exceeds 50 percent of the market
value of the structure before the
"start of construction" of the im-

stantial damage," regardless of the
actual work performed, or "repeti-
tive loss". The term does not, how-
ever, include either:


1. Any project for improvement
of a structure to correct exist-

ignation as a "historic struc-
ture."
Variance means a grant of relief
by the City of Trenton, Florida
from the requirements of this Ordi-


nance
Violation means the failure of a
structure or other development to
be fully compliant with this ordi-

evidence of compliance required in
this ordinance is presumed to be in
violation until such time as that
documentation is provided.
Water surface elevation means
the height, in relation to the Na-
tional Geodetic Vertical Datum
(NGVD) of 1929, (or other datum,
where specified) of floods of vari-

be limited to, certified by a profes-
sional who is authorized to certify
such information in the State, is re-
quired:
Application Stage:
a) Elevations of the area of de-
velopment in relation to mean
sea level (such as a contour
map) for both existing and
proposed development,
b) Elevation in relation to mean
sea level of the lowest floors
of all proposed structures,
c) Elevation in relation to mean

ment) elevated to at
least 2 feet above the
base flood elevation.
Nonresidential struc-
tures may be flood-


proofed in lieu of being
elevated provided that
together with all atten-
dant utility and sanitary
facilities, be designed
so that below the base
flood elevation plus
one foot the structure is
water-tight with walls
substantially imperme-
able to the passage of
water, and with struc-
tural components hav-
ing the capability of re-
sisting hydrostatic and
hydrodynamic loads
and the effect of buoy-
ancy.
A registered profes-
sional engineer or ar-
chitect, who is author-
ized to certify such
information in the

and methods of con-
struction are in accor-
dance with the ac-
cepted standards of
practice for meeting
this provision. The
FEMA Floodproofing
Certificate shall be
prepared, and submit-
ted to the Floodplain
Administrator along
with the corresponding
operational and main-
tenance plans. These
plans shall include, at a

ants, etc.), entities re-
sponsible for transpor-
tation to, and
installation at, the
structure within the
available flood warning
time for the site.
b) All new construction
and substantial im-
provements of nonresi-
dential structures
within Zone AO shall
(i) have the lowest
floor (including base-
ment) elevated above
the highest adjacent
grade at least as high as
the depth number
specified in feet on the
FIRM (at least two feet
if no depth number is
specified), or (ii) to-
gether with attendant
utility and sanitary fa-
cilities be completely
floodproofed 'to that

new construction or sub-
stantial improvements, fully
enclosed areas below the
lowest floor elevation shall
be usable solely for parking
of vehicles, building access,
or storage. These enclosed
areas shall be designed and
constructed to allow for the
entry and exit of floodwa-
ters to automatically equal-
ize hydrostatic flood forces
on exterior walls.
a) Designs for meeting with
this requirement must ei-
ther be certified by a pro-
fessional engineer or ar-
chitect, who is authorized
to, such information in the
State, or meet or exceed
the following minimum
criteria:
(i) A minimum of two
openings having a
total net area of not
less than one square
inch for every square
foot of enclosed area


subject to flooding

result in the mini-
mum required net
area of the openings
and permit the
automatic entry and
exit of floodwaters.
b) Access to the enclosed
area shall be minimum
necessary 'to allow for
parking of vehicles (ga-
rage door) or limited stor-
age of maintenance
equipment used in con-
nection with the premises

(stairway or elevator).
c) The interior portion of
such enclosed areas shall
not be partitioned, fin-
ished, or temperature-
controlled.
5) Provisions for Manufactured
Homes and Recreational Vehi-
cles.
1 .All manufactured homes
that are placed, or sub-
stantially improved on
sites:
(i) outside of an existing
manufactured home
park or subdivision,
(ii) in a new manufactured
home park or subdivi-
sion,
(iii) in an expansion to an
existing manufactured
home park or subdivi-
sion, or
(iv) in an existing manu-
factured home park or
subdivision on which a
'manufactured home,
has incurred "substan-
tial damage" as the re-
sult of a flood, be ele-
vated on a permanent
foundation to at least 2
feet above the base
flood elevation, and be
securely anchored to an
adequately anchored
foundation system to
resist foundation col-
lapse and lateral
movement.
b. All manufactured homes
to be placed or substan-
tially improved in an ex-
isting manufactured home
park or subdivision, that
are not subject to the pro-
visions of paragraph 5 (a)
of this Section, must be
elevated so that either:
(i).'The lowest floor of.
..!i,, f!r .* rYttre',mahufadcture'd
home is elevated to
at least 2 feet above
the base flood ele-
vation, or
(ii) The manufactured
home chassis is sup-
ported by reinforced
piers or other foun-
dation elements of at
least an equivalent
strength that are no
less than 36 inches-
in height above the
grade and be se-
curely anchored to
an adequate founda-
tion system to resist
flotation, collapse,
and lateral move-
ment.
c. All recreational vehicles
placed on sites must ei-
ther:
(i) be on the site for fewer
than 180 consecutive
days,
(ii) be fully licensed and
ready for highway use, or
(iii) meet the requirements for


new construction, in-
cluding anchoring and
elevation requirements
for manufactured homes
in paragraph (5) (a) of
this Section.
A recreational vehicle is ready
for highway use if it is on its wheels
or jacking system, is attached to the
site only by quick disconnect type
utilities and security devices, and
has no permanently attached addi-
tions.
6) Require until a regulatory
floodway is designated, that
no new construction, sub-
stantial improvements, or
other development (includ-
ing fill) shall be permitted
within Zones A1-30 and AE
on the FIRM, unless it is
demonstrated that the cu-
mulative effect of the pro-
posed development, when
combined with all other ex-
isting and anticipated devel-
opment, will not increase
the water surface elevation
of the base flood more than
one foot at any point within
the community.
7) Within Zones AH and AO
on the FIRM, adequate
drainage paths around
structures on slopes shall be
provided to guide floodwa-
ters around and away from
proposed structures.
SECTION D. STANDARDS
FOR REGULATORY FLOOD-
WAYS
Located within areas of special
flood hazard established in Article
3, Section B (A-Zones), are areas
designated as floodways. Since the
floodway is an extremelyhazardous
area due to the velocity of flood-
waters that carry debris, potential
projectiles, and have significant
erosion potential, the following
provisions shall apply:
1. Standards of Article 5, Sec-
tion C.
2. Prohibit encroachments, in-
cluding fill, new construc-
tion, substantial improve-
ments and other
developments within the
regulatory floodway unless
it has been demonstrated
through hydrologic and hy-
draulic analyses performed
in accordance with: standard
engineering practice that the
proposed encroachment
would not result in any in-
crease in flood levels within
the community during the
occurrence of the base flood
discharge.
SECTION E. COASTAL
HIGH HAZARD AREAS (V-
Zones)
Located within areas of special
flood hazard areas established in
Article 3, Section B, are Coastal
High Hazard Areas, designated as
Zones V1-30. VE. or V. These ar-

fore, the following provisions shall
apply:
1. Standards of Article 5, Sec-


tion C.
2. All new construction and
substantial improvements in
Zones VI-30 and VE (Zone
V if base flood elevation is
available) shall be elevated
on pilings or columns so
that:
a) The bottom of the low-
est horizontal structural
member of the lowest
floor (excluding the
pilings or columns) is
elevated to at least 2
feet above the base
flood elevation, and
b) The pile or column
foundation and struc-
ture attached thereto is
anchored to resist flo-
tation, collapse, and
lateral movement due
to the effects of wind
and water loads acting
simultaneously on all
building components.
Water loading values
used shall be those as-
sociated with the base
flood. Wind loading
values used shall be
those required by ap-
plicable State or local
building standards.
A registered professional engi-
neer or architect, who is authorized
to certify such information by the
State, shall develop or review the
structural design, specifications and
plans for the construction, and shall
certify that the design and methods
of construction to be used are inac-
cordance with accepted standards of
practice for meeting the provisions
of paragraph (2) of this Section.
1. Obtain the elevation (in re-
lation to mean sea level) of
the bottom of the lowest
horizontal structural mem-
ber of the lowest floor (ex-
cluding pilings and col-
umns) of all new and
substantially improved
structures. The Floodplain
Administrator shall maintain
a record of all such infor-
mation.
2: All new construction shall
be located landward of the
reach of mean high tide.
3. Provide that all new con-
struction and substantial
improvements have the
space below the lowest floor
either free of obstruction or
constructed with nonsup-
porting breakaway walls,
open wood lattice work, or
insect screening intended to
collapse under wind and
water loads without causing

place and Katie Quincey. re-
ceived third place honors.
In the Senior Division, Eli
Jerrels won first place, Jamie
Spivey won second place and
Trisha Cline received third
place honors.
The kids all had a great time
and even they appreciated the
smooth transitions as the events
were called.
Jean Jones, the Superinten-
dent of the Heifer show, ex-
plained that there were several
exceptional situations involving
this heifer show. One of these
involved a 700 pound animal
that was raised from a bottle.
Jonathan Hatch of Levy 4-H ex-


hibited this 14-month-old calf.
Malerie Whitehurst of Levy 4-H
exhibited a heifer calf that had
been raised alone after the calf
was found in the field. This six-
month-old calf was the first
animal that Malerie has ever
shown.
Jean Jones of the Wilcox 4-H
said she looks to see an even
larger turnout next year. She
had eight children from the Wil-
cox.-4-H Club that exhibited
heifers and many of them will
show additional animals in the-
market beef divisions of the fair
that begins Monday, March
14th.
Jesse Suville, of the Univer-
sity of Florida in Gainesville
judged the Heifer Show.

Commission Hears
From Public
Regarding Fire
Special Assessment
(Continued from Page One)
in Florida from counties 13,000
to 27,000 in population.
At the present time Gilchrist
County raises approximately
$340,976 annually for fire
service if all of the property
taxes are paid. Gilchrist County
latest population figures were
estimated to be 15,023.
Union County with a
population of 13,782 provides a
Fire and EMS service as a
combined program. The Special
assessment is funded through a
$50.00 per dwelling with no
fees charged to vacant land. One
person serves the position of
Fire Chief and EMS Director.
In Dixie County with a
population of 14,459, a special
Assessment is in place that
provides approximately
$400,000 in revenues annually
for the service. The Special
Assessment is based on $40.00
per residence and $45.00 per
commercial business and vacant
property is charged $12.00 and
up to 160 and .03 per acre above
160 acres.
Gulf County with a
population of 15,161 funds fire
service with a one half mill on
property taxes. This funding
source provides approximately
$143,000 annually. The fire
fighters in the city departments
receive $15.00 per structure fire
and $10.00 for each drill they
attend. Commissioner Sharon
Langford told the board that
there were other counties in
Florida that are smaller than
Gilchrist County that has
successful fire service programs
that operate on less money than
we are currently spending.
"I think that everyone here
tonight agrees that improved
fire service is needed. I don't
think that vacant land is a major
hurdle because it doesn't raise
that much money,"


commissioner Randy Durden
explained. "The people of
Gilchrist County need to know
what level of fire service will be
provided and what it will cost
and how the revenues will be
generated," Durden added.
The Commission Chairman
asked the board how' did they
want to have staff provide

Gilchrist County Clerk Joe
Gilliam explained that staff will
do what the board asks, but
many proposals have been
provided and the decision is up
to the Commissioners to
decided what level of service is
needed in Gilchrist County.
Chairman Gentry asked the
board members to research the
fire assessment issue and bring
a proposal back to the Special
workshop meeting on March
28th.


Shands Kids Benefit

works with hit home every day.
These illnesses do not just touch
the lives of the. children, but
their entire family. The Tanner
family shows incredible
strength, perhaps because they
have no other choice. Giving up
is not an option. Susan, Sarah's
mom, explains, "You learn, you
don't ever really get used to it;
you just learn to kinda cope
with it, to accept it. Every day
is a blessing, good or bad."
Today there are lots of spe-
cialists who work with the many
illnesses that affect children,
and the Teaching Hospital at
Shands is making sure there are

even more doctors working to-
ward giving individuals with
life-threatening diseases a
chance at living a longer, hap-
pier and more fulfilling life.
The Children's Miracle Net-
work works in affiliation with
the Shands Kids program which
supplies the hospital with new
equipment, research grants, kid-
friendly environments and the
Safe Kid Coalition. Anyone
who has spent even a short time
in the hospital knows it is very
easy to get depressed and that
can lengthen your healing time.
Sarah has spent weeks at a time
in the hospital and appreciates
all the things Shands and their
various programs have to offer.
They help keep the environment
as happy as possible and even
supply videos, various games
and lots of entertainment to
keep the kids' spirits up. Sarah
explained, "Some of the doctors
and most kids that have CF are
like a big family up there; they
call each other and see how
each other's doing." It's sup-
port and caring like this that
make life more fulfilling. The
program also helps the family
by providing fold-out chairs so
mom and/or dad can stay with
their child. And the support
team at Shands goes above and
beyond by even making sure if
mom or dad can't be there 24 /7,
someone will visit and spend
time with every child. This
someone could have four paws
and bark, or perhaps a few
