held at DeChamplain's
Heaven's Gate Farm arena.
The event began at 6:00 p.m. ,
as Wayne Dean expressed ,,, t'\ .\
thanks before the food began to O \'
be served. Foundation President
Susan J. Bryant thanked the i
hundreds of people that had
arrived before serving began to
take one of the 1500 seats made '-
available to the expected guests. .
When the guests began to
serve themselves from the 20 or
more stations that had several
platters of food, the people were
able to mingle and didn't have
to stand in line. Desserts that
were made and provided by
women from the Gilchrist .-
County Woman's Club and
other organizations were,
presented on both sides of the
arena. Susan Bryant wanted everyone to know what a great job Chelsea Teague has do

Major Stroupe Is Selected As

Character Council's Personality

For April


ne for
, has
grade!


By Geneva Cornwell
After 26 months of taking the
time to get to know people
through "personality" inter-
views for the Character Council
of Gilchrist County, this writer
continues to stand in amaze-
ment, and finds such a joy asso-
ciated, with the discovery of the
diversification of this county's
citizenry.
April's interview was no ex-
ception, as I spoke with Major
!Stroupe. (That really is his
name, folks; "Major.") He is
another one of the truly southern
gentlemen, originally from
North Carolina, who resides and
works in the tri-county area.
Mr. Major is retired Army and
first moved to this area, as a
teen, in 1967. He entered the
armed forces in 1969, but al-
ways kept his eye on one day


Major Stroupe


settling here for good; and he
did. Although his home is in
Bronson, he works in Gilchrist
as the county's Veterans' Serv-
ice Officer. He also volunteers


as the Finance Officer for the
American Legion (Gilchrist)
Post 91, as well as being one of
the Character Council's favorite
sons serving as its treasurer.
Mr, Stroupe and his beautiful
wife, Miriam, enjoy their three
grown children, living in the
country and being involved in
community affairs. After retir-
ing from the Army, Major be-
gan his second career as the
Levy County Director of Trans-
portation, and the Veterans'
Service Officer of that county as
well. He came on board with
Gilchrist County in July 2004.
Mr. Major suits his job, espe-
cially since the focus this month
is on the character quality of
PERSUASIVENESS. He truly
knows how to guide people

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The Wild Beast Feast
The Education Foundation
of Gilchrist County, Inc. has
once again put another
successful Wild Beast Feast in
the record books and into the
memories of those estimated
2,000 guests or more who
attended the Friday night feast.
Was it the best ever? That is
what some people are saying.
But I can say this, the 12th
annual feast went off with the
least amount of problems of any
I have ever been involved with.
Beast Feast Coordinator Susan
Bryant said it the best, "with the
cooperation within our area
working together and the
support of the De Champlain's
Heaven's Gate Farm arena, this
program was successful again."
The food was, once again,'
some of the best around. The
old favorites: barbecued goat,
quail, frog legs, fried turkey,
fried venison, swamp cabbage,
beef and pork, rabbit and all the
trimmings, were served in such-
a way that the guests didn't
ha\e to v.ait to get a serving or
eniSugh to taste-test. I like eanng


fried food as well as the next
person, but I also enjoy eating
grilled food and dishes like the
Louisiana Cajun Gumbo
prepared by Chef Donald
Thibodaux. The venison
sausage was also reported to
have become a big hit as well as
the fish chowder.
There are so many people
who are involved in making this
annual event a success. It is
people like the DeChamplain's
who allow the Education
Foundation to use their show
arena and their surrounding
pasture to park the hundreds of
vehicles. For years the Usher
family has allowed a group of
volunteers to go onto their farm
property to cut swamp cabbage
the Wednesday before the
Friday night event. Lancaster
Correctional Institute has been
involved by having their inmate
work crews work on the
premises for several days to
prepare for the evening event.
When the event is over Friday
night, it is the inmate work
squads from Lancaster
Correctional that are involved in
bringing this beautiful setting
'back to its former beauty. The
Gilchrist County Sheriff's
.C)fice'is also deeply in olved in
pro hiding inmate labor to do

The Gilchrist County
Sheriff's volunteer program
worked to coordinate and
control the parking and traffic
going in and out of the
Heaven's Gate Farm. There are
many corporations and
businesses that have donated

There a.ire hundreds of

preparing the food and the many
other things that make this event
successful for the graduates of
Gilchrist County Schools.
In 1993, when the first Wild
Beast Feast was held on the
Howell E. Lancaster farm, who
would have ever thought that
the program would grow to the
point, that it now provides
funding for over 65 scholarships
annually for graduates of
Trenton and Bell high schools?
The involvement of the
entire county is now essential to
provide for the needs of this
growing program. Join the

Character Council's
Personality Of The
Month For April Is
Major Stroupe
(Continued from Page One)
through the use of
PERSUASIVENESS by ex-
plaining vital truths so they can
get around their mental "road
blocks," therefore being aided'
with understanding of what they
need to do to move forward in
their lives.
One of Major's objectives in
his work is to encourage others
to help them recognize what
their "road blocks" are. He be-
lieves that by utilizing
PERSUASIVENESS in a kind,
gentle and caring way, he helps
individuals know how to make
their own life fulfilling. He en-
courages them to support their
community with their involve-
ment. He also believes that in
the use of PERSUASIVENESS,
a person must use the golden
rule, "Do unto others as you
would have them do unto you."
Mr. Stroupe supports any
measure in our community to
assist young people in building
character. If a youth desires to
learn PERSUASIVENESS then
he advises them to get involved
in local church group activities,
which will help to develop their
full potential while acquiring
knowledge in how to share
what's been learned with those
younger in age. He "encourages
parents to be the positive role
models they should be, while
children should respect their
parents so they themselves will
grow up into being positive role
models." He Iltes b) what was
taught hb his father, and that is
"do what is right." He supports
the concept that "sometimes it's
not easy to do % hat is right, (but
surrounding oneself. with posi-
tive people \\ho are not afraid to
do what is right and "ho live
with PERSUASIVENESS as a
key element. "w ill pro' ide good

What His Eyes Must See
(Kent Heaton)


Sunday, a "prince of Israel" was taken from
among men to walk in the presence of God. Liv-
ing in the hope of the eternal reward given
through Jesus Christ, Phil sought to walk in the
paths of righteousness (Psalm 1) and the God
whom he loved (Mark 12:30). He was not a per-
fect man but a man who sought the perfection of
His Fathers image (Matthew 5:48). It is not so
much that Phil has died but that a child of God
has gone home.
What wonders the child of God beholds in
death in the awakening of eternal life! When
people saw Lazarus in Luke 16 they saw a man
pitiful before men. He was a beggar who suffered
miserably in the flesh being full of sores. The
only pity given was the grace of those who would
lay him at the gate of a rich man to beg for mor-
sels of food and drops of water to cool his
parched throat. His misery was compounded by
the infectious compassion of dogs who would lick
his sores. How much he suffered in life. How
much he gloried in death.
The death of Lazarus came as he closed his
eyes to the world of flesh and opened them to
arms of angels as they bore him to the tender care
of Abraham's bosom (Luke 16:22). The pain he
suffered so wretchedly in life was now gone. His
mind was no longer clouded with the burdens of
the flesh. The eyes dimmed with the pain of suf-
fering were now clear as crystal beholding the
face of Abraham. Gone were the pains of hunger
and the unquenchable thirst to be filled with the
fullness of God's glory. The sounds he heard
were not the laughter of those who mocked him
or scorned him but the voices of angels singing,
"Holy, holy, holy. Lord God Almighty."
I wonder what Phil sees? He suffered in life.
Enduring the endless pain as did Lazarus, death
was a sweet blanket of serenity that flowed
through his body as he walked into a world that is
without understanding. We glimpse in the pages


of God's word for understanding yet still fall short
of comprehending the depth of its wonders. Lazar-
us was taken to "Abraham's bosom" (Luke
16:22). The thief found peace in the words of Je-
sus: "Today shall you be with me in paradise"
(Luke 23:43). John in the Revelation beheld "a
throne set in heaven, and One sat on the throne.
And He who sat there was like a jasper and a sar-
dius stone in appearance; and there was a rain-
bow around the throne, in appearance like an
emerald" (Revelation 4:2,3). The end of the Reve-
lation reveals that we shall see "His face" (Revela-
tion 22:4).
The death of a saint is a time of sorrow as we
mourn the separation of their life from ours but the
joy in the knowledge tliat death is not the victor (1
Corinthians 15:55-57). The child of God is born
anew when the "corruptible must put on incorrup-
tion, and this mortal must put on immortality" (1
Corinthians 15:53) and the victory is finally real-
ized in Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:57). There is
no more "death, nor sorrow, nor crying; and
there shall be no more pain, for the former things
have passed away" and He who sits on the throne
will say, "Behold, I make all things new" (Reve-
lation 21:4).
Phil was a teacher who now understands the
eternal wisdom of all things. His fleshly eyes could
only see the written words but now they see the
fullness of the mystery of man's existence. Because
he with all those who seek to "keep the com-
mandments of God and the faith of Jesus" (Reve-
lation 14:12) died in the Lord, he rests from his
many labors to enjoy the eternal reward promised
from the father (1 John 5:13). His works will fol-
low him on this earth as a testimony of devotion
and duty. The greatest work he has left us is the
knowledge of how wonderful it will be to open our
eyes in eternal life and see the Father face to face.
Nothing matters in life but what we see in death.

Kristen Burke

Kristen Burke To
Compete In Two
Academic Challenges
Twelve-year-old Kristen
Burke, a Bell Middle School
student, will be competing in
two academic challenges this
summer as part of the Pre-Teen
America program, a nationally
recognized scholarship and rec-
ognition program.
Kristen has been a contestant
in this program for four years
since the age of eight. In last
year's competition, she won
first runner-up in the Florida
State Senior Division, as well as
ihe School Honors and Activi-
ties Award.
SThis BMS student is highly
motivated in academics, as well
as in cheerleading, drama club,
band and community volunteer
services. She volunteers her
time and services at Bell Ele-


mentary by helping kindergarten
through fifth grade students in
the school's after-school reading
and math tutoring program. She
also helps with local food dis-
tribution programs in Gilchrist
County, and with community
clean-up activities.
Academic awards that she has
garnered include winning the ti-
tle of 2002 Pre-Teen New Jer-
sey, Jr., the Volunteer Service
Award for 2001 and 2002, and
winning fourth runner-up in
Pre-Teen nationals in 2003.
Kristen has several goals for
herself. Her immediate goal is
to win first place in the 2005
Pre-Teen National Sr. competi-
tion in Louisiana this summer,
and the 2005 Pre-Teen Florida
Sr. title in Tampa. To meet
these goals, she needs the finan-
cial and motivational support of
the community. The entry fees
for both competitions total over
$700. Any donations to help
this highly worthwhile aca-
demic goal will be greatly ap-
preciated.
Other goals Kristen has set
for herself include being the
class of 2010 Valedictorian,
obtaining Bright Futures Schol-
arships, and attending university
to pursue a career in writing and
publishing. She also wants to
participate in the Bell Mid-
dle/High School Marching
Band, continue in drama club,
and reach out to the community


through various volu
tivities.

otherwise see before.
PERSUASIVENESS is
peaceful, not.. pushy.
PERSUASIVENESS works
with people, not against them.
PERSUASIVENESS controls
information, not people.
PERSUASIVENESS is shar-
ing truth in a way others-can
understand.
PERSUASIVENESS over-
comes mental "roadblocks" by
following three important steps.
1) PERSUASIVENESS identi-
fies what mental roadblocks
stand in the way. 2) Once an
obstacle is known,
PERSUASIVENESS guides the
missing information around that
obstacle so the truth can be
seen. 3) PERSUASIVENESS is
silence. It isn't arguing and
badgering until the other side
concedes. It is peacefully and
quietly recognizing that every
person is responsible for his or
her own decisions.
PERSUASIVENESS explains
the truth, but it cannot force
others to embrace it.
The local students of Bell and
Trenton Elementary schools are
learning about
PERSUASIVENESS this month
and have memory work.to help
them along the way toward bet-
ter character. The following
poem is what they are learning,
which, in turn, is proving that.a
County of Character is a
County that Cares.
I will try to point my friends
In the direction they should
go.
But I will not start to argue
If they end up saying, "No."
I will simply share truth
That reaches to the very heart.
But I'll wait until they're
ready,
To hear before I start.
To live a life of character,
Commitment is the key.
When things get tough, I'll
prove to you
That you can count on me!

work toward their scholarships.
We would like to thank the

Gilchrist County

Celebrate
Agriculture
Literacy Day
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom sponsored its second
Agriculture Literacy Day on
March 17'h. FAITC's goal is to
help teachers and students gain
a better understanding about ag-
riculture. To promote this goal,
Gilchrist County FFA members,
and volunteers from the Ag
community visited classrooms
in kindergarten through fifth
grade to read How Groundhog's
Garden Grew. It was an enjoy-
able experience for students,
teachers, and volunteers.
A big thank you goes to
Mitchell Gentry, Dan Thomas,
Julie Thomas, Joanna Thomas,
and Jennifer McHale who took
time out of their busy schedules
to share the importance of agri-
culture with the students. An-
other big thank you goes to the
FFA members. These young
people did a wonderful job of


sharing their love of agriculture.
We appreciate the high schools
allowing them to participate in
this worthwhile event.
Florida Agriculture in the
Classroom is able to provide its
curriculum and programs
through the funding of the Agri-
culture License Plate.

GREETINGS
Baseball season has arrived
and this cute puppy is well-
prepared. Baseball is my fa-
vorite sport and even though
I'm a Yankee fan from way
back, I didn't feel bad when
they lost to Boston last season.
They'd won more than their
share of games so it was about
time they got whipped. Time
will tell if these same two teams


battle it out again this year...

Careers, like rockets, don't
always take off on schedule.
The key is to keep working on
the engines...
Gary Sinise

Gaylord (31) of Bell on April
17th; to Autumn Peth (23) of
Bell on April 19th... "May all of
you have a very nice day cele-
brating!"

If you read someone else's di-
ary, you get what you de-
serve...

ANNIVERSARY
. Happy 45"h Anniversary to
Regg and Nancy Castor of
Waccasassa Lake on April
16th... "Have a lovely day cele-
brating, Regg and Nancy!"

Much wisdom comes from
wise words, little from wise-
cracks and less from wise
guys...

FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason we use the word
"mug" to mean our face, is be-
cause a comparatively small jug
used for drinking is called a
"mug" and in the 18th century in
England these "mugs" were
commonly made to represent a
human face.

If you lighten the way for oth-
ers, you'll never be in the
dark yourself...

RIB TICKLERS
A young woman once entered
our bank and wanted to cash a
check.
"Do you have any identifica-
tion?" I asked.
"Yes," she said. "I have a
strawberry mark over my left
knee."

I went to the butcher's shop
the other day and bet him $50
that he couldn't reach the meat
on the top shelf. He said, "No,
the steaks are too high."

After deciding to take up
sailing, the lawyer went to buy a
boat.
"How do you dock this
thing?" he asked when he'd set-
tled on a model.
"You don't," the salesman
said. "To protect the finish
from dings, just tie it to a float
near the dock."
'"How do you get out to the
boat?"
"You can paddle out on a
small raft, or just walk to it if
you don't mind getting wet."
"Qh. I get it," the la\)er re-
plied. "It's Row y. Wade."
Our manager at the restaurant
where I worked was a much
beloved, jovial man. But there
was one subject you didn't dare
discuss in front of him his
height. Or, should I say, his
lack of it. One day, he stormed
through the door and announced
angrily, "Someone just picked
my pocket!"-
Most of my fellow waitresses


and I were speechless, except
for the one who blurted out,
"How could anyone stoop so
low?"
My son was doing well in
school, and I was proud. He
was too. In fact, he left a note
boasting, "Dad, I made the ho-
nar roll!"

The trouble with the younger
generation is that most of us
aren't in it...

THE COOK'S CORNER
Good Lemon Salad
1 (3-ounce) package lemon
gelatin
1 package instant lemon pud-
ding mix
1 #303 can crushed pineapple
with juice
1 cup miniature marshmal-
lows
2 cups whipped topping
1/4 tsp. lemon flavoring
1/4 tsp. pineapple flavoring
Prepare gelatin as directed.
Let chill till syrupy. Add re-
maining ingredients. Refriger-
ate.

Conscience is the small voice
you listen to after you tell it
what to say...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
To renovate feather pillows
set dryer on air setting and let
pillows tumble for 15 minutes.
However, make sure there are
no holes in the pillows or the
feathers will work through.

To stay young, associate with
youth...to grow old, try to
keep up with them...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
This Is The Day
This is the day the Lord has
made
To bless the earth with sun and
shade
And grace the life of you and
me
With joys of holy ecstasy.
So, let us join, in His embrace,
And prove deserving of His
Grace
By sharing Christian gifts of
heart
That are the blessings He im-
parts.
Let this be day of joy and love
That honors Him and God,
above,
And bears no trace of human
gi eed
That steals from me so you
succeed;
Let's live it, as it's meant to be,
With Heaven's gifts to you and
me
And live and love in Christian
ways -
That praise the Lord and praise
this day.

Successful Diabetes
Program About To
End
Rural residents suffering from
diabetes and high blood pres-
sure might be looking elsewhere
for disease management control,
as the grant-funded program
SMART could be in its final
weeks of existence.
The Self Managing Aware-
ness Rural Team, or SMART,
developed under the Rural
Health Partnership of North
Central Florida (RHP), offers
free home-based education and
self-management of diabetes
and high blood pressure.
SMART targets individuals who
were recently diagnosed with
diabetes or high blood pressure
and/or are experiencing trouble
coping with their disease. Ru-
ral, minority or medically un-
derserved residents within Brad-
ford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton,
Levy, Suwannee and Union
counties directly benefit from
SMART.
The mission of SMART is
simple: to decrease morbidity
due to diabetes, and high blood
pressure of residents in the
SMART service area. Since the
program's inception in 2002,
over 1,000 residents have been
screened for diabetes and high
blood pressure, and over 400
residents have completed the
SMART program.
The continued efforts of
SMART since 2002 has helped
to reduce hospitalizations by
68.6 percent and a survey of
SMART clients showed 98.9
percent feel they are better able
to handle their disease.
SMART was created by RHP
and administered by Well-
Florida Council, Inc. The pro-
gram is funded by a three-year
Health Resources and Services
Administration (HRSA) Rural
Health Outreach Grant.
The three-year grant period
for SMART ends April 30,
2005. Desiree Hayes, director
of the SMART program, has
been mobilizing to raise money
for the continuation of the pro-
gram. "Clearly, the goals of
SMART are being met and we
are encouraged by the fact that
rural physicians continue to re-
fer patients to our program,"
Hayes said.
Substantial contributions ,have
been' made to the program.
.Avled, a member of Santa.,Fe
HealthCare has committed
$20,000. Trenton Medical
Center and Lake Butler Hospi-
tal/Hand Surgery Center have
each committed $10,000. Su-
wannee River AHEC has com-
mitted $2,000, and ACORN
Clinic has committed $1,000.
The program is still in need of
an additional $30,000 to fund
SMART in five counties.
For more information about
SMART, please call
Desiree Hayes, of WellFlorida
Council, Inc. at 352-955-2264,
extension 304, or email:
dhayes@wellflorida.org.

Stormwater
Treatment Area
Captures Top
Engineering Award
The South Florida Water
Management District's Storm-
water Treatment Area, (STA),
3/4 was awarded the Grand
Conceptor Award, "the nation's
most prestigious award for in-
novative engineering" on April
11th by the American Council of
Engineering Companies. STA
3/4 is a constructed wetland
built on 17,000 acres of former
farmland designed to naturally
remove high levels of phospho-
rus from water entering the STA
from the thousands of acres of
active agricultural fields to its
north. After the water flows
through the STA, phosphorus
levels are significantly reduced.
The treated water is then al-
lowed to enter the Everglades.
This stormwater treatment area
is the largest ever constructed in
the world and has exceeded
performance expectations since
it began operation.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
o County
Well, here it is April already
and where oh where does the
time go? Seems like only yes-
terday that those kids that were
driving you crazy all summer
were headed back to school and
now before you can blink an
eye they'll be out for the sum-
mer again.
By this time, I was planning
on having at least two or three
Christmas gifts finished but all I
have done is started three. I
also planned on losing all those
extra pounds I gained from all'
the free political rally barbecues
and hurricane supplies and that
hasn't happened either.
But on the upside, spring is
here and alive and well. Re-
.. '| member that little poem we
S used to say? Spring has sprung,
the grass has ris, I wonder
where the flowers is. Well, you
sure don't have to wonder
e's where the flowers "is" because
sed they "is" everywhere. Mounds
of colorful azaleas and miles of
lovely phlox meet"us and greet
us as we drive along the high-
ways and byways. Bridal
wreaths looking much like their
namesakes sway, in the gentle
breeze like young girls dancing
to spring's rapture. Daylilies
are starting to burst forth.in
bloom as are many of our faith-
ful perennials. Of course, the
cute smiling faces of pansies are
still with us but not for too
much longer as they, like me,:
dread the hot breath of summer.
Many of the trees that have
lovely flowers in the spring
have already traded them in for
bright green leaves that seem to
hatch out of bare branches like
chicks from an egg. And
Speaking of that, my bluebird
boxes that held two boisterous
,th broods are now empty and quiet
s: sincee both ne'st's:'of fledglings
have flown.the ,copp,..so to
speak.
Yes, a lot has been happening
all around us...right before our
very eyes and the pity is we of-
ten choose to take it for granted
and never stop and drink in all
the wondrous beauty, sights and
smells God has created for us to
enjoy...free for the taking and
yet we often are too busy and
preoccupied to rejoice and be
glad for that which He has
made.
But the Joyful .Hearts did
celebrate the coming of spring
on Wednesday, March 30th at
our "Make It and Take'It Spring
Fling." There were 18 Joyful
Hearts present and some made
spring hats while others were
busy working on projects al-
ready in progress. Diana Lynn,
who has a son, Zachary, in
drama at Bell High, recruited
several brave souls to help with
costumes for an upcoming play.
S Everyone was to bring a dish
to share and believe you me, we
did share...we shared in some
of the most delicious, delectable
dishes a body could ever want.
Everything from Evelyn's tasty
soup to the nuts in and on my
trifle and so, so, so, much more.
I can truly say, a good time was
had by all.
Our next meeting was on
Wednesday, April 6th and while
I was in Orlando visiting, my
spy Diana, took excellent notes
for me to keep you informed.
Tweity Joyful Hearts gathered
together to enjoy one another's
company and to spread their
special kind of joy.
Ann Mangone, Elaine Ne-
meth, and Evelyn Wood worked
on the club quilt. Elaine's
friend from Fort Lauderdale,
Edith Cheskey, was visiting and
we always look forward to her
dropping by and joining us. She
really is a Joyful Heart, Fort
Lauderdale or not. She was
knitting what she called "Mar-
tha's Coming Home" poncho.
Of course, those Swedish

()Uilleps


weavers were hard at it with
Alice Binns leading the pack
that consisted of Jackie Moore,
Bonnie Edwards, Cathy Strom,
Lu Rowland, and Mary Lou
Ryder..
Marvine Deer was crocheting
on her afghan while Hiedi
Kamp was crocheting long
strips for a project she's up to
and Barbara Myrick was cro-
cheting squares for her project
as well. Needless to say needles
were flying.
Pat Luka was busy as a bee
on a cross-stitch for a great-
grandson's birth announce-
ment...congratulations. And
Diana was cross-stitching as
usual. Both. Maxine Hale and
Ann Taylor were embroidering.
Maxine is working on a table-
cloth and Ann is doing pillow-
cases.
Geneva Carver was hooking
her rug and I am more than
pleased to tell you the great
news...her tests said no can-
cer...praise the Lord...there is
power in prayer.
Barbara Strom busied herself
"supervising" and visiting. She
also brought in a chicken
scratch lap quilt and squares for
Show and Tell. And Bonnie
brought in the quilt she has fin-
ished for her granddaughter's
birthday. It is just darling and
she calls it Emily's Garden.
Paulene Martin had a doctor
appointment but was able to
drop by and say hi. She, along
with Bonnie, Evelyn and Ann
Taylor left early to attend Joe
Robertson's funeral. He was a
good friend and neighbor and
will be missed. He was espe-
cially known for playing Santa
Claus in the community and no
one ever played or looked the
part like Joe...may he rest in
peace.
Rita Simcoe was not there. I
assume she was with her
daughter, Valerie, who has been
quite ill and has undergone sur-
gery. Keep her in your prayers
that she will make a speedy and
complete recovery.
Elaine reported that the Easter
baskets taken to the nursing
home were really appreciated
and brought joy to the hearts of
those that received them...and
that's what it's all
about...spreading joy whenever
and where ever you can.
Diana wants to give a huge,
; iug~dhltithik you to ,ihat she
lovingly refers to as the "Cos-
tume Crew"...Ann Mangone,
Paulene'Martin, Barbara Strom,
Bonnie Edwards and Elaine
Nemeth. A special thank you to
Barbara for her generous use of
not only her time but her work-
shop and sewing machines.
Now I guess we all need to go
to the play to enjoy their handi-
work.
You know there is an old
Gospel song, You Can't Be a
Beacon If Your Light Don't
Shine. It goes on to
say... there's a little light in all
of us by God's design but you
can't be a beacon if your light
don't shine. These ladies' lights
shine. They are beacons. And
you can be one as well. God
gives each of us talents to share.
Maybe you can sing, or cook, or
drive...whatever. And He cer-
tainly presents us \' ith opportu-
nities to share our talents with
others. So ask yourself...am I a
beacon? Does my light shine?
Remember.. .there's a little light
in all of us by God's de-
sign...let it shine, let it shine, let
it shine.
Don't forget the North Gil-
christ Fire Department's Pan-
cake Breakfast and Spaghetti
Dinner, on Saturday, April 16th
and our next .regular meeting on
Wednesday, April 20th when we
will celebrate the April birth-
days.
Until next time.

Health Department
Warns Of Risk
Related To Inland
And River Flooding
With the expected crest of the
Suwannee and Santa Fe rivers,
the Health Department reminds
citizens 'of the risks of flood
waters. Specifically,;the risk for


mosquitoes warrant vigilance on
the part of the public. If your
well has been flooded, specifi-
cally if water has stood around
your well casing, it needs to be
tested and disinfected when
flood waters recede. Questions
about testing should be directed
to the Gilchrist County Health
Department at 352-463-3120.
It is important to disinfect
both the well and the plumbing
with chlorine bleach to ensure
that all infectious agents are
killed. If you have water treat-
ment devices, remove all mem-
branes, cartridges and filters and
replace them after the chlorin-
ating process is completed. The
amount of chlorine and the
length of time you allow it to
remain in your system are
equally important. Common
unscented laundry bleach can be
used effectively as a chlorine
disinfectant. Complete instruc-
tions for sampling your well and
sampling kits may be obtained
at the Gilchrist County Health
Department.
With the increase of standing
water comes the risk of an in-
creased mosquito population
and the risk of mosquito-borne
disease. Residents are urged to
take precautions to prevent
breeding grounds for mosqui-
toes and to protect themselves.
Preventing Mosquito-Borne
Disease
To protect against mosqui-
toes, DOH urges the public to
remain diligent in their personal
mosquito protection efforts.
These should include the 5 D's
for prevention:
1 Dusk and Dawn -
Avoid being outdoors when
mosquitoes are seeking blood,
for many species this is during
the dusk and dawn hours.
2. Dress Wear clothing
that covers the skin.
3. DEET When the po-
tential exists for exposure to
mosquitoes, repellents contain-
ing DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-
toluamide, or N,N-diethyl-3-
methylbenzamide) are recom-
mended. Products with con-
centrations up to 30 percent
DEET are generally recom-
mended for most situations. (It
is not recommended to use
DEET on children younger than
2 months old. Instead infants
should be kept indoors or mos-
quito netting used over carriers
\'.hen mosquitue' are reesenti.
If additional protection is nece.-
sary, apply a permethrin repel-
lent directly to your clothing.
Always read the manufacturer's
directions carefully before you
put on a repellent.
4. Drainage Check your
home to rid it of standing water
in which mosquitoes can lay
their eggs.
Tips on Eliminating Mosquito
Breeding Sites:
1 Clean out. eaves,
troughs, and gutters.
2. Remove old tires or
drill holes to drain in those used
in playgrounds.
3. Turn over or remove
empty plastic pots.
4. Pick up all beverage
containers and cups.
5. Check tarps on boats or
other equipment that may col-
lect water.
6. Pump out .bilges on
boats.
7. Replace water in bird-
baths and pet or other animal
feeding dishes at least once a
week.
8. Change water in plant
trays, including hanging plants,
at least once a week.
9. Remove vegetation. or
obstructions in drainage ditches
that prevent the flow of water.
Questions regarding flooding
and public health may be di-
rected to the Gilchrist County
Health Department at 463-3120.

POST 91 NEWS
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031

The first of the Donation Breakfast and Saturday morning meetings
went about as well as was expected. The extra crowd was due to the
ladies that came out to form the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 and
in some part to those that started the Sons of the American Legion
Squadron 91 at American Legion Post 91. Carl Cornwell and Shelby
McKinney cooked the breakfast.
The Post meeting began at 10:00 AM and business was conducted
rather quickly, due to the main idea of some was to get to the
establishment of the Auxiliary. Robin Briere, Florida Auxiliary
Department Secretary, met with the Fourth District Auxiliary President,
Carol Kaiserian, to bring the ladies up to date on the Auxiliary and get the
Unit organized. The Unit selected officers for the charter and got- the
paperwork in order. The top officers at present are Anne McKinney, Unit
President; Theresa Calloway, Unit Secretary; and Miriam Stroupe,
Treasurer. There are fourteen Auxiliary members on the Charter for Unit
91, and these ladies will be looking for more members to join. This
program is just starting out, so get on the bus and come along. Come see
where this organization can take you and the community you live in.
Together, with the Legion and the SAL, the Legion 'Family" can and will
make a difference in our community.
Sons of the American Legion Squadron 91, Department of Florida got
a start on Saturday as well. John Rose, from Post 284 in Belleview, came
up in his SAL role to help establish this Squadron. John has long
represented the SAL and the American Legion as a dual member and has
also been the Children and Youth Chairman for the Department of
Florida, so he stays busy. Post 91 was fortunate John could come by to
help out. The current SAL Commander is Dean Williams, who is also a
busy man. Dean is the Post 91 Adjutant and a Past Eastern Area
Commander from the Melbourne area in the American Legion. He, too, is
a dual member in the SAL. And, again, anyone interested in these
organizations can contact any of the Legion Post officers for more
information.
The American Legion Post 91 will meet on the second Saturday of the
month at 10:00 AM. There will be a donation breakfast before the
meetings, beginning at 8:00 AM and continuing until 9:45. The Sons of
the American Legion Squadron 91 will meet immediately after the
Legion meeting is over for the present time. As the Squadron gets more
into 'the swing of things', the squadron may decide to change the date
and time of the meetings. The American Legion Auxiliary will meet at
the Post Home on the second Thursday at 7:00 PM. Join with us and see
if there is not just the right place for you in one of these organizations.
The American Legion family wants you!
Fourth District Commander, Phil Hearlson, has invited the District
Legion Family to a Family Picnic on Sunday, April 17th at Post 284 in
Belleview, beginning at noon. The District will provide the meat and
drinks and if you wish to, bring a side dish or a dessert to share. Come
meet and visit with the rest of the "Family", on Sunday, April 17th at
noon. A young man from the Tampa/St. Pete area represented the
Department of Florida in the Oratorical Finals last Sunday in
Indianapolis, coming in third place out of all the Departments of the
American Legion. California placed first and Idaho finished second. The
young man came away with $14,000.00 for his efforts. He was home
schooled and apparently well spoken.
Remember Post elections are next month in May. Remember our
Armed Forces all over the world each day in your prayers and thoughts,
and here at home, watch over our veterans, widows and the families of
those called to active duty, helping out when and where we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

The American Cancer Society
is holding a free prostate cancer
seminar on April 28, 2005 at
6:30 p.m. at the Trenton Medi-
cal Center. It is free of charge,
and refreshments will be pro-

speaking about prostate cancer

the disease.
For additional information,
call the American Cancer Soci-

The American Cancer Society
is the nationwide voluntary


enforcing a no-wake/idle speed
rule on the Suwannee River
from Branford to Fowlers Bluff,
and on the lower Santa Fe
River.
Persons operating all forms of
watercraft on all local rivers and
Slakes are urged to show consid-
eration for property owners by
voluntarily maintaining reason-
able speeds, whether no-wake
signs are posted or not.
The Suwannee River Water
Management District does not
institute or enforce no-wake
rules. Enforcement of the no-
wake rule now in effect on riv-
ers is the responsibility of the
FWC. Questions or complaints
regarding boating activities on.
lakes should be directed to
county sheriffs or FWC.
Residents who are unable to
reach their homes due to road
flooding or other access issues,
should contact their county
emergency management coordi-
nator or sheriff.
Rain-swollen rivers create
dangerous conditions for navi-
gation and for property owners.
Wholly or partially submerged
objects such as trees and
stumps, telephone and electrical
wires, docks, and dwellings
pose a hazard to boaters.
Vessels traveling above idle
speed pose a threat'to private
property along the riverfront
and local lakes. The no-wake
rule is meant to protect homes,
docks and seawalls on or near
the river from additional flood
damage. The rule also offers
protection against environ-
mental damage, including ero-
sion, degradation of water qual-
ity, introduction of pollutants
into the river system, and the
undermining of trees and other
vegetation.

FREE Seminar On
Prostate Cancer
April 28
Prostate cancer is the.most
common cancer (excluding skin
cancer) found in American men.
"The American Cancer Soci-
ety estimates that this year in
Florida; 19,650 men will be di-
agnosed with prostate cancer,
and'2,570 men will die of the
disease," said Margaret Shaw,
area patient services representa-
tive.
But the other story is that
your risk of developing prostate
cancer can be reduced-and
prostate cancer found early is
100 percent curable.
Most prostate cancers develop
in men over 50, and grow very
slowly, but some spread quickly
causing unpleasant symptoms
and sometimes death.
Some men will benefit from
prostate cancer treatment and
other men will grow old and die
before the prostate cancer be-
comes a threat. Some men will

out so *-'Cti il.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, April 7'" at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It is
always a busy day and we get
a lot done. It was good to have
Ann Hardee back, even for a
little while. Pat Heubusch is
also back after having lots of
family to come visit.
Cleo Pravatt and I traveled
to Starke last Tuesday to judge
the quilts at the Bradford
County Fair. I have been go-
ing there for seven years, have
met many new friends and it's
so good to see everyone again.
We found so many are doing
machine comforters and as we
say, "A quilt is not a quilt until
it's hand-quilted," all others
are comforters.
We will be having our sixth
wedding here on Saturday.
We enjoy all the ways.people
like to get married. They will
be married in front of the fire-
place among all the light-


houses. We do wish them the
very best.
The Church Fellowship
Luncheon will be held May 3 .
We always have a great day
and the Old Town Methodist
Church ladies, will be the host-
esses.
Lunch is always enjoyed
with so much food. Marie
made a great strawberry des-
sert and we had a big table
with food of all kinds. There
were 23 present.

A Consumer Bulletin
On The Electric
System
By Braulio L. Baez
The production and delivery
Sof safe, reliable, and affordable
electric power to homes and
businesses in Florida requires
the coordinated function of sev-
eral components. Each facet of
this far-reaching network has to


operate efficiently in order for
electric consumers to realize the
benefits of the system as a
whole.
While an electric transmission
and delivery system has scores
of highly technical and often
.complex aspects, it can be bro-
ken down into two major cate-
gories: generation of electricity
and the delivery of electricity to
consumers.
Electric generation in Florida
occurs through the use of a
number of fuels. Coal, once the
dominant fossil fuel of choice,
gave way to oil, and more re-
cently, natural gas. A number
of power plants in Florida retain
the ability to burn either oil or
natural gas to maximize effi-
cient operations. Florida also
receives some of its power from
nuclear reactors at three loca-
tions around the state. Whether
a power plant uses fossil fuels
or employs a nuclear reactor,
the generation process involves
the production of massive
amounts of steam. The steam
drives the blades of a turbine,
which can be thought of as a
large motor. The turbine rotates
a generator and creates electric
current.
Once electricity is produced,
a system must be in place to de-
liver the power to consumers.
The system responsible for the
delivery of power is usually
thought of as having two com-
ponents, transmission and dis-
tribution. '
Transmission lines are made
of current-carrying materials
such as copper or aluminum in
various configurations. The
purpose of a transmission line is
to carry high-voltage electric


power- sometimes exceeding
765 kilovolts in large quanti-
ties from a power plant. The
distances traversed by high
voltage transmission lines are
often great.
Because the high-voltage cur-
rent carried over transmission
lines is not usable by residential
and commercial customers,
transmission lines usually ter-
minate at a substation near the
users' locations. Transformers
in these substations, sometimes
referred to as "step-down"
transformers, reduce the volt-
age. From these substations,
distribution lines carry electric-
ity to customer locations. For
users needing even lower volt-
ages, voltage can be reduced by
a distribution transformer or a
line transformer to a level of
110 volts.
In order for business and resi-
dential customers to have access
to an uninterrupted flow of reli-
able power, every aspect of the
generation and transmission
system must function as de-
signed. This precise function-
ing extends to arrangements
between electric utilities to in-
terconnect their systems. Often
times investor-owned utilities
will have points of interconnec-
tion with municipal utilities or
electric cooperatives and vice-
versa. The purpose of having
electric utilities connect their
systems is to provide a greater
measure of reliability for con-
sumers. If a utility experiences
a disruption in its system, power
can be obtained from an inter-
connected utility until power is
restored.
Braulio L. Baez is the Chair-
man of the Florida Public


Service Commission. The PSC
sets the rates regulated utility
companies charge for natural
gas, electric and telephone
service within the state. In 36
counties, it sets the price you

Bell High School

Senior Is Selected To

Be Featured In Top

Florida College


Magazine

Mary Christina Callahan, a
senior at Bell High School, has
been selected out of thousands
of senior applicants throughout
the- state of Florida to be fea-
tured in the next Step Magazine.
The magazine's feature article,
Florida Super Teens 2005, is an
annual contest where teens are
nominated by their guidance
counselors or teachers. They
must be involved in a variety of
activities, both academic and
extra-curricular. They are cho-
sen to inspire others by their
leadership abilities.
Mary was entered by her
counselor, Mr. Brad Surrency.
Mr. Surrency said "Mary is the
prime example of what. a student
leader should be. She is well
rounded and always strives to
do her best in whatever she is
involved in. It was an honor for
me to send in her name as a
nominee." Out of the 25 se-
lected seniors, Mary was the
only student from the north
central Florida area. All of the
other winners were from the
large metropolitan areas of
Florida.

Second Annual
Firewalker Legacy
Pow Wow Honors
Veterans
(Continued from Page One)
One reason why this Pow Wow
exists today is because of how
moved Mr. Blair was at his first
Pow Wow experience. You see,
Pow Wows honor ALL veter-
ans, and when at that first Pow
Wow Mr. Blair was accepted
and sincerely thanked for all he
had given, he was moved to
tears. After that his family at-
tended Pow Wows whenever
they could and after his passing
his wife felt it only fitting that
his family offer the Pow Wow
experience to others in his
memory.
This Pow Wow is inter-tribal,
allowing anyone to participate.
Mrs. Blair explained that the
vendors she has at this Pow
Wow only sell items handmade
and as authentic as possible.
The main purpose of their gath-.
ering is to share each one's
heritage and teach children and
adults about the various Native
American lifestyles. Some ven-
dors were even teaching chil-
dren how to make the jewelry as
the ancestors had done. Dancers
came from all over the country
to take part in the Grand Entry
and show off their beautiful re-
galia. Many dancers have items
on their regalia (clothing) that
have been handed down' from
their ancestors. Others have en-
hanced their regalia, with vari-
ous bellsand have the ability to
make music as they dance.
The Pow Wow this year was
honoring Veterans of the Viet-
nam War. The American Le-
gion of Chiefland was kind
enough. to express their thanks
to all who have served their
country.
The Pow Wow had a lot of
learning opportunities. There
were rescued gray wolves and
authentic lodges (tee pees) and a
host of individuals who were
happy to share their knowledge
of their tribe. I hope you had
the chance to get out and enjoy
all they had to offer, if you.
missed it do not worry, Mrs.
Blair told me there will be a
third Pow Wow next year.

First Equine West
Nile Virus Case
Reported;
Bronson Urges
Vaccinations For
Horses And
Precautions For
People
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson says this
year's first case of Eastern
Equine Encephalitis has been
reported in Union County and
he is urging horse owners to
have their animals vaccinated
against mosquito-borne ill-
nesses.
The three-year-old horse was
seen by a local veterinarian who
suspected Eastern. Equine En-
cephalomyelitis (EEE). On
March 22nd, lab testing con-
firmed the diagnosis of EEE.
The testing also revealed an ex-
posure to the West Nile Virus
(WNV), which may have com-
plicated the horse's condition.
"Horse owners have done a
good job in getting their animals
.properly vaccinated over, the
past few years and we have seen
a significant drop in the number


of equine WNV cases," Bronson
said. "But it is critical that we
don't become complacent.
Mosquito season is upon us and
the chances of contracting these
diseases have, of course, in-
creased. Horse owners are re-
minded that their animals' vac-
cinations must be up to date,
including the necessary-booster
shots."
In 2004, there were 48 re-
ported cases of EEE in horses
and six confirmed equine WNV
cases. That compares with
nearly 500 reported WNV cases
in 2002. A vaccination against
WNV became available in the
summer of 2001 and EEE vac-
cinations have been around for
years.
Bronson is also urging Flor-
ida residents and visitors to take
precautions against mosquito
bites to reduce the chance of
contracting mosquito-borne ill-
nesses. People are urged to
avoid being outdoors at dusk
and dawn when mosquitoes are
most active and, if they must be
outside at those times, to wear
loose-fitting, long-sleeve shirts
and pants. People are also
urged to use mosquito repellent
containing DEET. Residents
should take steps to eliminate
mosquito breeding grounds on
their property by removing
standing water from birdbaths,
kiddie pools, old tires and other
items where water can accumu-
late.

Bell Elementary Wodeo Was Great

Fun For Everyone


By Anna Wild
On Saturday, April 9, 2005
Bell Elementary School hosted
their Second Annual Stick
Horse Whoadeo. Over 100 kids
from B.E.S. brought stick
horses and took part in Arena
Racing, Barrel Racing, and
Bucking Bronco, and were
judged on their dress and stick
horses. Pre-K ,through fifth
grades were individually judged
and first, second and third place
recognition were awarded to
participants in each event per
grade.

The event was a fund-raiser
for the B.E.S. Accelerated
Reader Program. The funds
raised will help purchase more
A.R. books, tests, incentive
awards and will help to fund the
field trip that kids who have met
their A.R. point goal are
awarded at the end of each year.
The event earned some extra
recognition this year as TV 20
came out to see the Whoadeo in
action, a member of the Painted
Horse Society took back infor-
mation about the event, and a
representative from the Orlando
Sentinel visited and spoke

wanted to thank everyone who
came out to support the

You to all the sponsors who
