By Mayor Pete Randolph
In 1968, Trenton Mayor
Vernon Layfield and the City of
Trenton Commissioners James
Batson, J. O. Coleman, Lester
Cribbs and Alvin Davis, saw a
need for a wastewater treatment
plant. An application was filed
on February 15, 1968. The
Commission continued to move
forward and in May of the same
year, contracts were awarded.
Three months later a resolution

was signed accepting a grant
from The Farmers Home Ad-
ministration. Five days later, in
April, another resolution was
signed authorizing payments.
Then, on April 29, 1969, ap-
proximately a year later, word
came to the Commission "that
the plant would soon be opera-
tional.". The plant indeed began
to operate some time in May of
1969 and has continued to oper-
ate nearly 40 years. To the


credit of "prayer and the dedi-
cation of a very capable city
maintenance crew," the plant
can lay claim to the oldest oper-
ating water treatment plant in
the State of Florida (and who
knows, maybe the Nation).
In 2000, the City Commission
saw a need for a new and larger
wastewater facility to accom-
modate the projected growth of
the city and to replace the anti-
quated one (still operating).
The Commission then in-
structed the City of Tredton
Manager, Michael Lamar, to
seek a way to secure funds in
the form of a grant to make this
project a reality.
The City Manager reported to
the Commission that funding
could be secured for plant con-
struction through the Florida
Department of Community Af-
fairs and the Community De-
velopment Block Grant along


with a Florida Department of
Environmental Protection State
Revolving Loan. The commis-
sion decided to seek these low


interest loans.
The Commission agreed, after

If you're new to the area you
may not be familiar with' the
Trenton Rotary Club and Rotary
International. Perhaps you've
lived here your whole life and
just never asked exactly what
the Trenton Rotary Club did.
Well recently I asked and I
would like to share with you a'
little about how the club im-
pacts our community.
This year marks the 100-year


anniversary of Rotary Interna-
tional which is a foundation that
is a not-for-profit group dedi-
cated to achieve world under-
standing and peace through in-
ternational humanitarian,
educational, and cultural ex-
change programs. The group is
made up of business owners and
representatives from various
businesses. Their motto is
"Service Above Self" and I am
proud to say our local Rotary


Club does just that.
Our local group is lead by
Mark Feather, current Trenton
Rotary Club President. The
goal of the group is to have a
representative from all busi-
nesses within the Gilchrist
County community. The Tren-

community in ways you may
not expect. They painted the

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Sometime ago when I was
traveling into the Nassau
County area, taking our
daughter Carrie back to
Callahan, we traveled through
St. George, Georgia to purchase
some gas and drive by the
Shack by the Track, a favorite
barbecue restaurant in this small
rural community.
Many of the roads in this
small rural town are constructed
of dirt, and gravel. I'm sure the
gravel is a stone that is
abundant in this area of south
Georgia. In Gilchrist County the
same roads would be
constructed of limerock, which
is a mineral product that is most
abundant in our area.
We had stopped at a local
General Store which had gas
pumps that required the
customers to walk inside to pay
for the fuel. As I stood in this
small rural area pumping gas, I
looked around to view an area
that has not been affected, by
rapid growth and updating state
rules to restrict problems from
occurring. I thought back in
time when Florida reminded me
'f this area when I was just a'
boy in my teens (boy that was a
long time ago).
This rural area in south


Georgia is comprised of
timberland and some agriculture
production. As you travel north,
the agriculture production
increases.
In looking at the landscape,
the area is mostly flatland with
contours of bottomlands with
small rivers and creeks.
In Florida, we seem to be
experiencing a rapid rate of
growth with people moving to
the rural area from both south
Florida and the upper New
England states.
Everyone wants to enjoy the
open spaces that Gilchrist
County once possessed. Now
that we are experiencing the
21st century, the open spaces
are becoming smaller as land
values skyrocket.
Agriculture space is turning
into residential developments as
more people are making their
way to Florida's natural
countryside.
The growth and restrictions
that affect Florida's northern
area is often dictated by the
more populated areas of
southern Florida.
I am in hopes, as we go
through this growth cycle, that
Gilchrist County will be
minimally affected by the types
of people that are beginning to
call Gilchnst Count) their home
now.
The negative aspects of
agriculture land and the insects

that accompany the open spaces
are just a way of life when you
have these areas. I had rather
have the insects, than have to
deal with the problems that
occur if this area is in concrete
and asphalt.
Many people that I have
talked With who have lived in
Gilchrist County for many years
are moving to south Georgia
and Alabama. I hope this area
does not change to' the point that
the people who made Gilchrist
County what it is are forced to
give it up.

Governor Bush Signs
Jessica Lunsford Act
Spurred by the killing of a
nine-year-old girl, Governor Jeb
Bush on Monday, May 4, 2005,
signed a law imposing tougher
penalties on child molesters and
requiring many of those re-
leased from prison to wear sat-
ellite tracking devices for the
rest of their lives.
The measure gives Florida
one of the toughest child-sex
laws in the nation.
The Jessica Lunsford Act was
quickly drafted after Jessica's
death was discovered in March
and was pushed through by
lawmakers outraged that the
man accused of killing her was
a registered sex offender. It
passed both the Senate and
House unanimously.
It establishes a mandatory
sentence of at least 25 years be-
hind bars for people convicted
of certain sex crimes against
children 11 and younger, with
lifetime tracking by global po-
sitioning satellite after they are
freed.'
Bush was joined by Jessica's
father, Mark Lunsford, who
wore a tie bearing pictures of
his daughter and said he had
been working so furiously on
the legislation that he has not
yet really grieved.
"I'm still lost, I haven't really
dealt with it yet," Lunsford said.
He called the tie his "hug" from
Jessica. "I'm still minus my
kiss, but that's my hug."
John E. Couey, a convicted
sex offender who was living
near Jessica, was arrested in
Georgia and was charged with
snatching her from her bedroom
and murdering her.
The bill's momentum in the
Legislature increased in April
after another Florida girl, 13-
year-old Sarah Lunde, of
Ruskin, was found dead and an-
other registered sex offender
was charged with murdering
her.
The 25-year minimum would
not apply to anyone convicted
of molesting older children.
Those offenders would have to
be monitored electronically only
during their probation, not for

Once there was a little boy
who had a pet dog. The two
were inseparable. The dog
loved to be with the boy and
would follow him around the
house and yard. And the boy
loved his dog. They slept to-
gether, ate together, and loved
to play together. They were
best friends.
Their family lived near a busy
road but they had a nice fence to
keep both of.them safe' from
harm. One night the gate did
not get latched all the way and
the wind blew very hard. The
gate opened, just a little. In the
morning mom put the dog out-
side to do what dogs do in the
morning. She was surprised
that he did not come scratching
at the door after a few minutes.
Shortly after there was a knock
on the door. When the mom an-
swered the door there was a
woman there in tears. She was
asking if they owned a dog.
The mother answered yes and
explained what their dog looked
like. The woman apologized
and explained that she had just
hit their dog. Apparently he had
found that slightly opened fence
and wandered out onto the road.
It was a dark morning and the
woman explained that when she
saw him she could not stop fast
enough. The dog died on the
side of the road. The little boy
was heartbroken. The boy did
not go to school that day, he sat
and thought of his friend.
The boy remembered seeing a
big cross on the side of the road
where some kids had been killed
in a car accident. He went out-
side but could not find any
pieces of extra wood, so he
made a cross from two sticks
and some twine. His mother
was touched by his thoughtful-
ness and agreed to help him put
it along the road.
This was the story that came
to mind one afternoon. I was on
my way to Gainesville when out
of the corner of my eye I saw
something different. A little
stick cross bound with twine.
At first I thought it odd, who
puts up a stick cross? No
sooner did my mind ask the
question and I knew. It could
have been a little girl who made
the cross; maybe the cross was
for a cat, I'm not sure. But I
noticed it.
Pets and wild animals in the
thousands lose their lives to the
roads everyday. Now I know
we can't prevent every death

life.
Some offenders already on
the street could be ordered back
to jail or be placed under GPS
monitoring if they violated their
probation.
Lots of other states have
minimum mandatory sentences
for sex crimes against children.
A number of states already re-
quire some form of lifetime su-
pervision of sex offenders, in-
cluding GPS tracking, according
to the National Conference of
State Legislatures.


along the roads, but sometimes
we can if we drive a little slower
when it's dark, rainy, or foggy.
Maybe if we just give the crit-
ters a brake when it's safe to do
so, we could make a little dif-
ference.
The little cross is no longer
on that road and I don't know if
a storm got it or the mowers
took it out. But in many ways
that little cross still stands.

It was just a stick cross
bound with twine. I caught
a glimpse of it out of the
corner of my eye. Who puts
a stick cross along the side
of the road? A child does.

Your Speech Betrayeth You
(Kent Heaton)


Salt is a vital part of life as it adds savor to our
diets, preserves food and is found throughout na-
ture. Jesus illustrates the disciples' life as salt in
Matthew 5:13 as an influence for good in the
world. If that influence is lost as salt loses its fla-
vor, it is good for "nothing but to be thrown out
and trampled Underfoot by men." Paul in Colos-
sians 4 also uses the measure of this influence to
describe, a great evil men battle with the tongue.
"Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned
with salt" (Colossians 4:6)..
The wise man said, "For as he thinks within
himself, so is he" (Proverbs 23:7). Jesus reminds
us "the good man out of his good treasure brings
forth good things: and the evil matt out of his
evil treasure brings forth evil things" (Matthew
12:35). Our speech is produced by what we think
and if good things come from our mouths, we are
filled with good things; if evil things come from
our mouths, we are filled with evil things. James
presents the great evil of the tongue in James 3.
"And the tongue is a fire: the world of iniquity
among our members is the tongue, which defiles
the whole body, and sets on fire the wheel of na-
ture, and is set on fire by hell. For every kind of
beasts and birds, of creeping things and things in
the sea, is tamed, and hath been tamed by man-
kind. But the tongue can no man tame; it is a
restless evil, it is full of deadly poison. Therewith
bless we the Lord and Father; and therewith
curse we men, who are made after the likeness of
God: out of the same mouth cometh forth bless-
ing and cursing. My brethren, these things ought
not so to be" (James 3:6-10).
Children of God should be very careful about
what comes out of their mouths. The language of
the world is enmity with God and He hates it (1
John 2:15-16). We should understand the speech
of the world is not becoming saints of God. Paul
writes to the church at Ephesus: "Let no corrupt
speech proceed out of your mouth, but such as is
good for edifying as the need may be, that it may


give grace to them that hear ... But fornication,
and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not
even be named among you, as becomes saints;
nor filthiness, nor foolish talking, or jesting,
which are not befitting: but rather giving of
thanks" (Ephesians 4:29; 5:3-4)
The seasoning of our speech begins in a heart
filled with words of God. The problem is not the
tongue but the heart. We cuss, swear, and gossip
because our hearts are filled with the wickedness of
the world. Filthy language is common on television
and movies and we accept it as approved of God?
The Lord says otherwise! Using God's name in
vain is an abomination in His sight. The Law of
Moses may have been nailed to the cross (Colos-
sians 2:14) but God's view of His name was not!
"Thou shall not take the name of Jehovah thy
God in vain; for Jehovah will not hold him guilt-
less that takes his name in vain" (Exodus 20:7).
When.we "sanctify the Lord God in our heart"
(1 Peter 3:15), our speech will reflect the words of
God. Too often Christians reflect the world in their
speech and bring shame to Jesus Christ. We are to
have "sound speech that cannot be condemned;
that he that is of the contrary part may be
ashamed, having no evil thing to say of us" (Titus
2:8). When we allow filthy language in our lives,.
the world has "evil" to say about us and we bring
shame and disgrace to the Father, His Son and
grieve the Holy Spirit.
Blessing and cursing is not acceptable before
God. Excuses will not be allowed before Him. If
we do not clean up our language our language
will clean us up on the day of judgment! It is that
serious before God. What comes from the mouth is
what is in the heart. What is in your heart? "But I
say unto you, that every idle word that men shall
speak, they shall give account thereof in the day
ofjudgment. For by thy words thou shalt be justi-
fied, and by thy words thou shall be condemned"
(Matthew 12:36-37).'

Library
I hope all mothers had a won-
derful day and if your families
do not live here that they sent
you a card and/or called. One
mother, whose son is in the Ma-
rines, sent her an FTD bouquet.
Marcia Muller is a new author
for me. She wrote Deception
Point about how a inurder that
occurred about 13 years before
was solved. Echoes is a new
large print novel we received
recently. In this book Danielle
Steel described what it was like
for a Jewish family to live in
Europe during the two World
Wars.
For the junior reader, there is
a delightful book, Good Dog. If
you are a dog lover you will
enjoy this story about a boy. and
his golden retriever.
A Summer Saturday Morning,
by Margaret Mahy is a colorful
rhyming book for the beginning
reader that will be suitable for
parents to read to their child or
children.
Many of you are returning
your overdue books and we are
so thankful. It isn't pleasant for
our volunteers to remind you to
do this before you can check out
an) m,:ire books. "', '
Many thanks 'tb"th' ieJdtalI
for the picture of our volunteers
and for the excellent write-up
about the open house held at
Bell Library recently.
To help you get to know our
librarians and to become more
acquainted with our library,
starting next week, we are going
to honor one member of the
staff each week. As we profile
each one of them, we invite eve-
ryone to come in and meet
them.

Springhouse
Quilter's News
Shown in above picture are
Donna Tooke and Daphine
Harden, two of the Night Owls
of Springhouse Quilters. Donna
is displaying an antique quilt
she recently completed that was
given to her as a keepsake from
a family member. Each family
member's name has been em-
broidered into the quilt top.
Springhouse Quilters will be
holding a two-day quilt show in
November 2005. The guild
members are busy completing
quilts that will be shown in this
show. It takes a quilt show to
keep quilters motivated to com-
plete their projects as quickly as
possible. Complete information
will be released to the media
closer to the actual quilt show
dates.
Quilters have two major
faults. The first is good for the
quilt shop owners, .buying and
stashing fabric. Most quilters
have a stash of fabric that is un-
believable. Our excuse for
buying so much fabric is to keep

friends or given away for com-
munity use. For this year's

4 Pets Sake
What a surprise we had when
we walked into Mrs. Rish's
first grade classroom at Bell
Elementary School. They pre-
sented a check for $704 to 4
Pets Sake to be used in our spay
and neuter program. This group
of young children was a unified
team. Indeed, all things are
possible! Speaking for myself I
was fortunate to have received a
great education, but I wonder
just how much more could have
been accomplished and
achieved if I had teachers such
as Mrs. Rush. Thank you all so
much.

GREETINGS
My special friend, "Boots"
Essex of Lake Placid will love
this picture of a German Shep-
herd dog...her favorite breed.
She used to own a couple of
Shepherds when we were
neighbors in Hialeah back in the
70s. "Does this bring back a
few memories, Boots?"
When the words we speak
bring smiles to lips, our words
have not been wasted...
BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Sue Suggs
of Waccasassa Lake on May
12'h; to Joanna Williamson of
Sun N'Fun and to Marsha Pence
of Fanning Springs on May 14h;
to Kay Davis of Waccasassa
Lake and to Theresa Louise
Connatser of Bell on May 15"h;
to Herbert Lee Gay (78) of Fort
White and to Melody Campbell
(19) of Waters Lake on May
16th..."May all of you have a
very nice day celebrating!"
Reverence for the past is im-
portant, but so is regard for
the future...
FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason a book is called a
"volume" is because ancient
books were written on sheets of
paper which were fastened to-
gether lengthwise and rolled up
like a window shade. "Vol-
ume" is from Latin volvere,
meaning "to roll up."
Those who bring sunshine to
others cannot keep it from
themselves...
RIB TICKLERS
After checking into his motel,
a fisherman struck up a conver-
sation with an old man who had
been watching TV from his easy
chair in the lobby. Curious
about fishing conditions in the
nearby river and lake, he asked
the oldster if he did much fish-
ing around there. No, the old
fellow said, he didn't do any
fishing, or much else. Then he
volunteered an explanation.
After he had undergone some
life-threatening surgery last
year, he said, his doctor had
commented: "You're recovering
beautifully, Sam. God must
have something he wants you to
do here on earth before he calls
you home." .


"That's why I'm not doing a
heck of a lot these days. I don't
know what it is God wanted me
to do, but I sure don't want to
take a chance on getting it
done."
While leading activities for
seniors at a nursing home, I
asked my group to complete
well-known phrases.
For example, I would prompt
them with, "Better safe..." to
which they would respond,
"than sorry."
The game proceeded as ex-
pected until I got to the phrase
"Make love, not war." I had
barely gotten out the first two
words when a 90-year-old
woman shouted from the back,
"While you can!"
Customer-service reps repeat
the same tired phrases so often
that we can do the job in our
sleep. We hear a beep telling us
a customer's on the line, and
we're on.
I never knew how this hum-
drum routine affected us until a
co-worker had heart surgery.
She was coming to, following
her operation, when she heard
the beep of the heart monitor.
In her anesthetized stupor, she
groggily said, "This is Sue, Can
I help you?"
Here's the secret to a happy
marriage: Do what your wife
tells you.
To lengthen thy life, lessen thy
meals...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Life's Road
God isn't one to compromise;
There is no other way.
He isn't one to bend the rules
Or lead us all astray.
Life's road is straight and nar-
row
With mountains we must climb,
And the only way to get there
Is one step at a time.
We must focus on the Savior
Or else we'll lose our way.
Life's road is straight and nar-
row
SAsI'' live from dai to day."
Cla\ Harrson

I'll leave you with this
THOUGHT FOR TODAY: The
ultimate measure of a man is
not where he stands in mo-
ments of comfort and con-
venience, but where he stands
at times of challenge and con-
troversy.

Brandie Lovelace, recreational
therapist at Ayers, wanted to
make sure all 200 volunteers

to the residents was invaluable.
Volunteers provide a special
kind of gift. Their time is given
freely and they ask nothing in
return. Ayers Health and Reha-
bilitation Center treasures their
volunteers and are proud the
community has such caring in-
dividuals.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Looking out through my
sliding glass doors, I can
scarcely believe that only 60
days or so ago the trees were as
bare as a newborn baby's bot-
tom and I could see clean


through to the pines at the back
of the woods.
Because everything was so
bleak and naked, the Spanish
moss seemed to hang like death
itself from the trees making the
woods seem forlorn...sinister
and not the least bit inviting.
But how true those words
are...to everything there is a
season. And praise the Lord,
the woods are alive with the
promise that all is indeed right


with the world according to
God's plan. The lush green
leaves of trees, bushes and yes,
even weeds, have transformed
that dark and foreboding place
into one that beckons one to
come explore and investigate
the hidden treasures it holds.
Treasures such as shy wild
flowers, lacey, delicate spider
webs, nests and other carefully
engineered dwellings for nu-
merous of God's creatures.
Even the mosses, lichens and
fungi have a beauty all of their
own, especially the magical
fairy ring I spotted in the back-
yard after all the recent rain.
The honeysuckle is in full
bloom on a piece of fence in the
back and the bees are taking full
advantage of it and the confed-
erate jasmine which is also in its
full glory. The climbing roses
fill the air with their own sweet
fragrance and the purple clema-
tis are dancing in the breeze like
lovely ballerinas.
While April may not have
given us as much rain as we
might have liked, it certainly

from home, if we so desired.
Needless to say, we all took
home a lovely craft made from
nature's treasures and the gift of
time spent together, close to
nature and friends. Of course, I
can't overlook the fantastic ar-
ray of ice creams, toppings,
whipped cream, sprinkles, nuts,
fruit, coconut, etc. that turned us
all into giggling school girls as
we made super-duper sundaes
and even went back for seconds.
The bad news is we probably
gained a pound or two. The
good news is there was enough
left over to be able to do it
again...real soon.
I mentioned before that some
of the Joyful Hearts- helped to
make some of the costumes for
the Bell High School drama
program. So on Friday, May
'7th, eight of us had dinner at
Akins and then attended the
play, The Canterbury Tales. It
was great to say the very least.
And we were all as proud of
Zach, Diana's son, as she was.
We all agree that our lives
seem busier and busier. Maybe
because we are getting slower
and slower...I guess time will
tell. I just know that each day is
a precious gift and carries many
blessings even when some are
disguised as hard times and
heartaches. We are never alone
and His many blessings are a
gentle reminder of how much

gave us enough to bring forth
May flowers, leaves, grass and
yes...weeds. But it is awe-
some...and I continue to be re-
minded how blessed we are to
live in the midst of such beauty
and not in a canyon of cement
high rises. We. are blessed to
have ribbons of brightly colored
wildflowers to drive along and
not ribbons of lanes of traffic on
either side of us. We are
blessed to enjoy nature's sym-
phonies instead of sirens,
honking horns and screeching
brakes. Yes, we are blessed in-
deed.
I have a Gospel CD I listen to
often, when I'm driving. One
of the songs is entitled Heaven's
Much Better Than This. It was
playing as I was driving north
on SR 129 on the way to
Branford. The sky was azure
blue, not a cloud in sight and
miles of dazzling gold wild-
flowers danced in the breeze as
cars drove by. I thought to my-
self...it's hard to believe heaven
will be better than this...but it
will be and what a day that will
be.
In the mean time, on
Wednesday, May 4th, 17 Joyful
Hearts and three very special
visitors enjoyed heaven on earth
right here in Gilchrist County.
Bonnie Edwards, my sister, and
I wrein ,Lawrenceyl.le, Geor-
g a, oli~bating mv, -daughter,
Debbie's 50t' birthcFay. I think
that officially makes me older
than dirt. But Diana Lynn, my
niece, took great notes for me so
I can keep you well informed
and up-to-date.
Diana did all this while con-
tinuing on with that 16-year-old
cross-stitch which is nearly fin-
ished. Ann Taylor and Lera
Townsend both carried on with
their embroidery work on pil-
lowcases. Both have one fin-
ished and have moved on to the
next one.
Madeline Norman busied her-
self connecting yo'yos for a
quilt while Elaine Nemeth
worked on the club quilt and
Evelyn Wood was busy knitting
baby mittens for preemies.
Paulene Martin had babies in
mind, as well. She was cro-
cheting tiny baby hats.
Crocheting took the lead this
time over Swedish weaving...if
you can believe that. Marvine
Deer was crocheting an afghan,
Barbara Myrick was crocheting
squares and Heidi Kamp was
crocheting a blanket. Sylvia
Arthur, who Heidi has just
taught to crochet, was happy
just making a chain and Matty
Turner, as usual, was crocheting
"something''... way to go.
Jackie Moore, Alice Binns,
Ruth Wilkerson, and Cathy
Strom, who has finally returned
from her fantastic voyage to
Hawaii, were all working on
their Swedish weaving.
Ann Mangone had her hands
full but not with quilting or
crafts. Something much bet-
ter...her two twin granddaugh-
ters, Katie and Melissa and of
course, mommy Michele, were
all visiting from New Jersey to
celebrate the twins' first birth-
day. Now, do you think that's a
proud grandma or what?
Sounds like the Joyful Hearts
had more than their share to be
joyful about and as you can tell
we truly are blessed.
On Wednesday, April 26"', 16
of us shared in a wonderful
"Make It and Take It and Ice
Cream Social" at Mary Lou Ry-
der's lovely and most unique
hide-a-way. It is a real treat, joy
and blessing to spend a day
there soaking up all that nature
has to share...with, the excep-
tion of chiggers, which some-
how we all escaped this time.
Mary Lou provided us with
"tons" of driftwood, shells,
rocks, moss, twigs, vines, and
such that she collects daily. We
added some things we brought

LOG CABIN QUILTERS 11


Alice Mae Haire has made a "Strawberry Shortcake"
quilt. This fabric could not be found for a long time but
sometimes some fabrics come to life and it brings back
memories.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, May 5th at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was
a quiet day after having Jeffery
and seven boys out on Monday
to do a lot of needed work. It
was also a day to start cooking
for the Church Fellowship
Dinner on Tuesday. What a
day that was. How good to see
so many friends and make new
ones.
Wednesday was a day to re-
lax and some of us need that so
we decided not to cook for
Thursday and to go out and


eat. We traveled to ABC.
Pizza, had a great lunch, then
back to the museum.
Ann Hardee and her sister
Cleo went to Gainesville and
bought back four new tables,
paper goods and other things
we need. Sometimes when we
have big crowds we need more
tables. We are just thankful we
have a building as big as it is
because when we get so many
here, we need it.
We are planning to have a
sale here soon to get rid of lots
of fabric, patterns and what
have you. We'll let you know
the date soon.

Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Last Saturday night, Post 91 Legionnaires, Major Stroupe, Marilyn
Williams, J.M. 'Murph' Everett, Marcia and 'Joe Parker, Dean
Williams, Wayne Gravely, Carl and Geneva Comwell, and Fourth
District Vice-Commander, Jim Ramos, who is also the Legion Post
Commander from Post 149 in Newberry, attended the Military
Awards Banquet for the Bell High School Army JROTC. Post 91
Past Commander Major Stroupe, being retired U.S. Army, was asked
by Post 91 Commander Wayne Gravely, if he would do the honors of
presenting the Military Awards and Certificates to these Army
JROTC Cadets. Major Stroupe presented the Academic Achievement
Award to Mindy Cannon and the Military Excellence Award went to
Jessica Jacobs. Post 91 congratulates these two young ladies on their
accomplishments and we also thank Colonel Dennis McGill, First
Sergeant Jon Meinholz, and the Bell High School JROTC Cadets for
allowing us to join them for the banquet.
Due to scheduling conflicts, the Auxiliary Department of Florida
will be unable to install the new Auxiliary Unit 91 on June 11th, so
the Department Office phoned the Charter President, Anne
McKinney and told her the Charter would be presented, and the
officers would be installed at the next regular meeting, which will be
Thursday night, May 12 (tonight). All Legionnaires are invited and
requested to bring their spouses to celebrate this occasion with our
new Auxiliary Unit. There will be refreshments after the Installation,
so come out and welcome the new part of our Legion "family" They
are all familiar faces, but now have a "say" of their own.
Post Elections are Saturday. Post 91 NEEDS YOU! Come out
Saturday morning, eat breakfast, and stay around for the meeting.
There are programs in the American Legion that will fit you very
well. Come on in and try some on. You might be surprised at how
well they can fit and how little they wear on you.*With enough
Legionnaires on board, the work load could be rather light.
Memorial Day, Monday, May 30, will be here before you know it.
The "Post 91 Family" will have a float in the parade. Plan to come
out to ride with us, or walk (or march) in the parade or at least watch
the parade go by, but plan to be in Trenton for the Memorial Day
activities. Right after the parade there will be a program at the
Courthouse that will dedicate a new monument to our Nation's
veterans. The LifeSouth bloodmobile is scheduled to be on hand
should you want to "give the gift of life" and donate blood. For each
pint of blood donated, three lives are saved. Now there is a deal.
Join us on Memorial Day and remember that it is not just part of
another long weekend, but a day to remember those that paid the
great price for what we have today. It may not be perfect, but would
you want to live somewhere else in this world?
Remember our Armed Forces all over this world every day in our
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, keep watch over our
Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the families of those called to
active duty, helping out when and where we can. Remember; the
handicaps and problems are not always visible, "so try a little
kindness".
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

Horseshoe Beach
Boating Accident
Claims Two Lives
A fishing trip in the Gulf of
Mexico turned deadly Wednes-
day, May 4h, when weather
conditions deteriorated on a trio
of friends.
Theodore Eugene Swing, 68,
of McAlpin, and James Allen
Hinton, 57, of Jacksonville,
perished as a result of the boat-
ing mishap.
The third man, Joseph Henry
Stalvey, 70, of McAlpin, sur-
vived.
. The three men had gone out
approximately 20 miles to fish
for the day. Sea conditions
worsened and they were at-
tempting to return to Horseshoe
Beach. Their boat, a 19'6"
1978 Aqua Sport, was swamped
when a wave came over the
transom, according to Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) investiga-
tors.
The men managed to get a
distress call out before the boat
rolled over in the water. Per-
sonnel 'at the Horseshoe Beach
Marina heard the call and noti-
fied the U.S. Coast Guard who
Began searching for the men.
According to FWC investi-
gators, the men were found near
their overturned boat by the
Coast Guard. Swing was dead
at the scene. Hinton and
Stalvey were airlifted by the
Coast Guard to Shands Hospital

in Gainesville. Hinton died en-
route and Swing was brought
back to shore by a Coast Guard
vessel.
Hinton and Stalvey had their
life jackets on. Swing had been
unable to get his jacket on.
SeaTow brought the men's
boat back to shore where it was
examined by FWC investiga-
tors. The boat was released to
the Swing family.
The accident is now under in-
vestigation by the FWC.

Trenton Wastewater
Treatment Plant
Goes On-line
April 26
(Continued from Section A,
Page One)
a lengthy discussion, to con-
struct an Oxidation Ditch sewer
plant that has a 200,000-gallon
per day capacity. This type of
facility treats water and sewage
with naturally occurring proc-
esses to treat these waste prod-
ucts. The old plant had a capac-
ity of an estimated 90,000
gallons a day.
Because of his expertise,
knowledge and perseverance,
not to minimize the many hours
of paper work and conference
calls made by all the city staff
working together as a team, a
new wastewater treatment plant
became a reality. The Commis-
sion also had a goal of having
this project completed through a
private contractor within a year.
The Commission selected
Beach Construction to construct
the $1.22 million facility.
Groundbreaking for this pro-
ject was realized on the 9th day
of August, 2004, with a pro-
jected completion date of mid
February 2005. Then along
came four hurricanes, "Charlie,"
"Frances," "Ivan" and "Jeanne"
which caused delays, pushing'
the projected completion date
into April of 2005.
The City of Trenton decided

Push It!

to go forward with this new type
of plant due to the fact that the
day-to-day operational and
maintenance costs would be
significantly reduced. The elec-
trical costs to operate this new
type plant were expected to be
much less because the large
blowers would be unnecessary.
The "City of Trenton, Florida
Wastewater Treatment Plant"
officially became operational on
April 26, 2005 to serve the citi-
zens of Trenton now and in the
future. Ken Corbin operates the
new sewer treatment plant.

donated it to the Trenton Rotary
Club. His donation was greatly
appreciated. The Trenton Ro-
tary Club then donated the fire
truck to the Gilchrist County
Emergency Management Serv-
ices Department to help the
community in future emergen-
cies. It is individuals with fore-
sight and generosity like Mr.
Chesborough that make up ro-
tary clubs all over the world.
The international group is
committed to the eradication of
polio throughout the world.
Years ago polio was an often
fatal disease that effected many
children. Today in our country
we sometimes take it for granted
that polio is less of an issue than
chicken pox. But in many other
countries the children are not so
fortunate. Rotary International
groups from 153 countries have
joined together and have raised
over $130 million for the pur-
chase of polio vaccines. The
vaccines are then distributed
wherever they are needed. This
is one ongoing campaign in
their promise to eradicate polio
worldwide.
Our local Trenton Rotary
Club had the pleasure of hearing
how one program made a major
impact on two of our tenth
grade students. Last year the
Rotary Club decided to partici-
pate in the RYLA program
which sends tenth grade stu-
dents to a leadership camp. The
camp is designed to enhance
leadership skills by presenting
various types of challenges to a
group and allowing them to
work together to meet the goal.
The idea is to learn to trust each
other and open up and contrib-
ute ideas. Out of this program
future leaders are born. Tricia
Distrola from Trenton High
School and Kirby Davis from
Bell High School were selected
from the applications the Rotary
Club received. They attended
Trenton Rotary Club's meeting
on Monday, May 2nd and
thanked the Rotary members for
giving, them such an .amazing
opportunity.
Both explained that the three-
day camp, held in Pensacola,
was the best experience they
had ever had. They explained
how much they had to "learn to
trust your teammates," when
one activity made them fall
backward and trust the team to
catch them. They were tested in
seTeral ways with exercises in-'
cluding building a devise that
would allow you to drop an egg
from the second story of a barn
without breaking it; cross ropes
that resemble, a spider's web
without touching the web,
climbing a 40-foot pole and'
stand on the top then bungee
down; and several other activi-
ties that were designed to test
their mental and.physical abili-
ties.
SThe Rotary Club has decided
to continue their involvement in
the RYLA program and will ac-
cept more applications in the
beginning of 2006. This effort
is being headed by Edward
Philman who can be reached at
463-3400 for additional infor-
mation.
The Trenton Rotary Club is
also very' involved in helping
the fund-raising efforts of the
Suwannee Valley Leagues.
They know how important
sports are in a child's life and
want to support the group. If
you would like more informa-


tion on how to become involved
in the Trenton Rotary Club, call
current President Mark Feather
at (352) 463-2348, or come and
join them at a weekly lunch/
meeting. They meet every
Monday at the Gilchrist County
Woman's Club in Trenton. If
you would like to learn more
about becoming a member,
come to a meeting and Mark
said he will buy you lunch!


AARP News
If Born Before 1945
We are survivors. Consider
the changes we have witnessed.
We were born before televi-
sion, penicillin, polio shots, fro-
zen foods, Xerox, plastic, con-
tact lenses, Frisbees and the pill.
Before radar, credit cards, split
atoms, lasers and ballpoint pens.
Before panty hose, dishwashers,
clothes dryers, electric blankets,
air conditioners, drip dry clothes
and before man walked on the
moon.
We got married first and then
lived together. Our closets were
for clothes, not for "coming out
of." Bunnies were small rab-
bits, and rabbits were not
Volkswagens. Designer jeans
were scheming girls named
Jean, and having a meaningful
relationship meant getting along,
with our cousins.
We thought fast food was
eaten during Lent. We were
born before house husbands,'
gay rights, computer dating,
dual careers and computer mar-
riages. -We were born before
day-care, group therapy and
nursing homes. We never heard
of FM radios, tape decks, elec-
tronic typewriters, artificial.
hearts. word processors, yogurt
and guys wearing earrings. For
us, timesharing meant together-
ness, not computers or condo-
miniums, a chip meant a piece
of ood; hardware.meant hard-
ware and software wasn't even a
word.
In the 40s. "Made in Japan"
meant junk. Pizza. Big Macs.
and instant coffee \ere unheard
of. 5 & 10s %ere places where
)ou bought things for a nickel
or dime. For a nickel you could
ride. a street car, make a phone
call, buy a Pepsi, or enough
stamps to mail 'one letter and
to postcards. A new Chevy
coupe sold for $600 and gas was
11 cents a gallon.
n'our day. grass. was mo%\ed,
Coke' Was'a c9ld6 drink and pot
was something you cooked in.
Rock music was a grandma's
lullabN and AIDS were helpers
in the principal's office.
No wonder we're so confused
and there isa generation gap to-
day. But we survived what
better reason to celebrate.
If Nou have an article to share,
please bring it to our next
meeting. Speaking of which
will be the celebration of our
30th Anni'erjiry as an AARP
chapter. We will have a cov-
ered dish dinner at this meeting
so please bring something to
share. The meeting will be held
at the Trenton Community
Center on Wednesday, May 181h
-at 10:30 a.m. Hope to see you
there.
