Suwannee River Shrine Club Puts Kids First


By Anna Wild
What is the Shrine Club?
What is a Shriner? Many peo-
ple are aware that the Shrine
Clubs throughout the United
States work to help children
with burn or orthopedic injuries.
What many people are not
aware of is that there are 20
Shriners Hospitals for Children
within the United States, one in
Mexico and one in Canada. All
of these hospitals are fully
funded by the Shrine Clubs
throughout the world. The
Shriners Hospitals are consid-
ered the leaders in the world for
children with orthopedic orbur
injuries. They also offer treat-
ment for spinal cord injuries and
cleft nose, chin or lip. The
Shriners Hospitals for Children
is a network of pediatric spe-
cialty hospitals, founded by the
Shrine, where children under the
age of 18 receive excellent
medical care absolutely free of


charge. And they mean free,
their hospitals look like any
other hospital except there is no
billing department. There is no
need, no insurance forms are
ever filled out, no Federal or
state funds are ever processed.
These-hospitals are built and run
by funds collected by the Shrine
Clubs all over the world.
Club President Jack Ellis, and
Sam Ferguson, Shrine Hospital
Coordinator, were kind enough
to meet with me and give me
some information about their
club and how they help meet the
financial needs of the hospitals.
In North America approxi-
mately 500,000 men belong to
191 Shrine Temples or chapters.
Here our local Suwannee River
Shrine Club was started back in
1966. They have approximately
76 members and they are spon-
soring 30-40 children from Gil-
christ and north Levy County at
a Shrine Hospital at any given


Levy Extension Agent Resigns

His Duties Involving The

Suwannee River Fair


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Longtime Suwannee River
Fair fiscal clerk Anthony Drew
has resigned his position. After
15 years as the fiscal clerk for
the fair Drew said in his resig-
nation letter written on April 24,
2005, "I am now informing you
that I am resigning from this po-
sition effective at the end of this
fiscal year (June 30). This
means that I will not in the fu-
ture be active in any phase of
general management of the Su-
wannee River Fair."
Mr. Drew and two secretaries
from his office have for the past
15 years carried the largest load
of general management of the
fair. Drew and his team were re-
sponsible for the majority of the
behind the scenes activities that
made the largest fair in this area
of Florida seem to run effort-
lessly.
The Suwannee River Fair,
which includes students from
Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist coun-
ties, has tripled in size during
Drew's tenure. According to
Drew's recollection the total fair
budget when he began was
around $200,000, now it's
around $600,000. It has become
a year round undertaking to
produce a fair the quality and
size of the Suwannee Ri'er Fair.
Drew and staff start the process
each year with such items as
entry forms being mailed in
September for the March fair.


Using an application for soft-
ware that Drew wrote himself
they handled such items as the
data entry and reports from each
and every show at the fair, ring
tickets for the sale, sale order of
livestock for the Wednesday
sale, and produced and mailed
all sale bills the day after the
sale. For years thbe;,ve also
worked diligently to collect un-
paid bills on livestock.
In his letter Drew stated that
no Levy County Extension
clerical personnel or Mr. Drew
himself will be involved with
any of the general management
functions for the fair.
"I am proud of what we have


accomplished over the past 21
years, and it is without apology
that I tender my resignation.
Twenty-one years is enough. I
would like to thank Nikki Wil-
son and Evelyn Mathis for their
able assistance and support. It's
time to redirect my efforts and
energy in other important direc-
tions as I continue over the next
eight or ten years, God willing,
to serve as the Agricultural Ex-
tension Agent for Levy
County."
Mr. Drew's resignation was
accepted by the Suwannee River
Board of Directors at a meeting
held on Tuesday, May 24t.

time. The children they sponsor
can be referred to them by
friends or family. Individuals
with children who could benefit
from the Shriners can call di-
rectly and sometimes even
Shands Hospital will call and
refer a child. Shands and the
Shriners have a great relation-
ship and Shands understands
that when it comes to children
and burns it is not only a life
threatening injury, but an injury
that has a very long healing
process. You see, if a child is
burned the skin that is damaged
will no longer grow with the
child. We all know how much
our children grow and will con-
tinue to grow until they are
about 16 years old. Imagine the


number of surgeries a child who
has burns over a large portion of
their body will have to endure.
The Shriners Hospitals work
with cases like that every day.
Mr. Ferguson explained, "The
Shrine Hospitals put the child
first and mom or dad is number
two." He also explained how
fast the Shrine Hospitals move.
"If the Shands Burn Center
knows they have a candidate for
the Shriners Hospital they notify
the Shriners of the incident.
From the time of the phone call
to the child being in route to
Cincinnati is about four to six
hours." The Shriners pay for all

On Monday, May 30'", the
Gilchrist County Historical
Society will hold a Memorial
Day Tribute to honor the
veterans who have lost their
lives while serving this country.
This program will begin at
10:00 a.m. with a parade which
will travel south on Nlain Street
and will end south of the
Gilchrist County Courthouse.
A ceremony honoring the
veterans %will be held on the
south lawn of ihe courthouse
beginning at 11:00 a.nm.
This NMemorial Day program
has become a monumental
'tribute which brings a lot of
people back to Gilchrist County
to honor the veterans. Each of
the monuments has a very
special meaning for the
veterans their families and each
of us.
This past week I spoke v\ith
a resident of Gilchrist County'
and he explained the feeling he
and his iife experienced when
they visited Normandy and the
cemetery here thousands of
young Americans.were buried
after being killed in the
I~atrmandy invasion from June
25. 1944.
My generation has been
blessed with the freedom that
thousands of Americans each
gave their life for. I came along
during a .time when'"I %as too
young to be called to serve my
country in Southeast Asia and
too old to defend our freedom in
the wars since the mid '70s.
When I think about the
thousands of young soldiers
who have been called to serve
in Iraq, and the many that ha\e


been killed, I believe we cannpit
do enough to show .our
appreciation to the families of
these bra\e Americans.
,On Nlonda, Nlay 30"', it-is
our duts as Americans to;
support the veteranss and shot\
our love and appreciation for
their service in keeping our:
country free. We cannot do
enough for our.. fellow
Americans when they server our
country and give the ultimate
sacrifice.

Letter To The Editor
Thank You Mr. Rothgeb
The final band concert May
17'" was a testimony to why we
will greatly miss our band di-
rector for Trenton High School.
Thank you Jim for showing us
the value of our children by
your patient instruction in the
infancy of their musical abilities
and the powerful evidence of
their growth in the high, school,
marching band.
The task of being a music di-
rector in a school setting is
daunting at best. Your connec-
tion with each student is close
and personal. From their lips
and reflexes, you have to draw a
musical note that will find a
pleasing reception to the audi-
ence. Fine-tuning those strains
and meticulously weaving them'
into harmony with a hundred
other students is no small ad-
venture. You have shown
through the years (has it been,
eight years?) your love for mu-.
sic, your love for our kids and
your ability to consistently pre-
sent Trenton High School as a
top quality band. Those who
'know you best will miss' your
lousy jokes, your enthusiasm,
your hot cars and your wonder-
ful wife, Kendra who spent
many, many long hours' with
you creating, directing and put-
ting together the marching band
patterns. We are not just losing
a band director we are losing a
team effort. Few may realize
the work that Kendra put into
the band Thank ',ou.,Kendra.
The two of ou ha'e reminded
us what ha,sbeen lost in the
frenzy of education our chil-
dren. That is what it used to be
.abIut but no longer. Our loss:
will be another school's gain.
We thank you and we deeply,
appreciate your direction of the
Trentn.High School Band. By
the' way you really do .rock
with a saxophone!

Band parent


A Letter To
The Editor'
E I'm writing in response to the
article in John's Comments of
S last week's paper. First I want
S to address the mention of Jerry
Keller of Spring Ridge Subdivi-
Ssion coming before the Board of
SCounty Commissioners to ask
the Board to put the roads in
l) Spring Ridge on the SCRAP
program. I want to thank him
for all the hard work he :has
S done on this road project in
Spring Ridge. He came before
the Board previously and gave a
S real detailed report of the con-
l edition of the 25-year-old roads
in the subdiis-ion, L ith color"
photos and a map I have had
two road contractors ride with.
me and give me an evaluation of
< .he roads and-they said the roads,
were very poorly constructed.
In places the asphalt is less than
1/4 inch thick. The roads are in
bad shape and 1ill ha\e to be
fi\ed, and they do belong.to the
Count). 'I have been working
on this project, and others, for
over two years, trying to find
funding for them. 'And now
Jerry has joined me in my ef-
forts And ,YES I have pre-
sented the Special Assessment
Program: to Spring Ridge two
times already they will tellyou
that. I have also presented it to
p another subdivision and offered
to present it to two others in
other parts of the County.
There must be a mistrider-
Sstanding somei.here. ot either I
have the wrong approach. I
don't working just my district. I
feel like I workfor the whole
County not just in my district.
I have worked in all five dis-
tricts ever since I took office in
2002 and I have projects gbing
on in all five districts now. It is
certainly not that I want certain
areas or subdivisions in only my
district to receive paved roads.
Spring Ridge, happens to be in
my district, and I have been told
they are also the first paved
subdivision in Gilchrist County.
Therefore the roads are over 25
years old and I am glad to be
able to help them try and get
them repaired. I will continue
to look for revenue, grants and
any funding I can to help con-
struct, repair, or replace any and
all roads in Gilchrist County.
When DOT came before the
board the question was asked if
we could take all the roads in
Spring Ridge, group them to-
gether and present them as one
project on the SCRAP program.
I had talked to DOT beforehand
and they told me we could.
Jerry Keller, from his research
and conversations had been told
the same thing and was there-
7 .fore making his request before
the Board. My motion was to
put the roads in Spring Ridge on
the SCRAP program as we were


t

I

I





J


told we could. I have talked to
DOT before and after the meet-
ing and they' have reassured me
hat we can do this and I have
requested that in writing. They
have also told me you can put as
many roads on the list as you
want (no limit) but only two
will be sent to Tallahassee:
DOT also assured me that if the
Board puts Spring Ridge roads
on the SCRAP program for this
year, it will in no way ever
jeopardize this program or the
SCOP program. I am not doing'
this to appease one resident or
one group. I look at it as part of
the whole county road system.
The road department spends a.
lot of money each year on cold
patch and salary to continuously
patch the roads in Spring Ridge.
If we can somehow get them re-
surfaced we could eliminate this
expense and the longer we wait
the more expensive it will be.
The base is deteriorating and
both contractors told me we
ha.e waited too long to mini-
mize the cost and the longer vwe
wait the more it will cost I am
just asking the BOCC to help
me with this and all roads in
Gilchrist County. We use our
roads everyday.
Before I close I want to
commend Spring Ridge Subdi-
\ision on all their hard work
The, are a real asset to Gilchrist
County. They have a lot of
things going on such as "Wel-
come Wagon" program for new.
residents (great idea), a Fourth
of July Parade and picnic, a
great (well organized Spring
Ridge Civic Association, and
many more great things. I
would encourage The Johural to
go out and visit Spring Ridge
and see what all they do for Gil-
christ County. It would make a.
great story for the community'
and maybe give others some
ideas.' They also ha'.e an ex-
cellent fire department and
serve delicious breakfast on the
first Saturday of each month.
Come visit they will be glad to
have you!
Thank you!

A Letter To
The Editor
Last ,w'ek ad ,,oCtizen, .fom.,
Spring Ridge asked the Board,
of Counirty- Commissioners,-to-
add the roads in their commu-
nity to the Small County Road
Assistance Program. I voted no
to putting the Spring Ridge
roads, on the SCRAP program
because of uncertainties about
the project as it was proposed I
instructed the county adminis-
trator to contact I.O.T for clarn-
fication, and it is my hope to
add this road project to the
Small County Road Assistance
Program.
The paved roads in Spring
Ridge subdivision belong to
Gilchrist. County, and it is our
responsibility to repair them.
Considering the present condi-
tion of the roads, the only ac-
ceptable repair is resurfacing. I
am in favor of adding these
roads to the S.C.R.A.P., iSmall
County Road Assistance Pro-
gram). to be paved \with state
dollars. Few roads in Gilchrist'
County are left for this program,
and none are deteriorated nearly


as much as the roads in Spring
Ridge. While I agree with Mr.
Ayers, that M.S.T.U. (Munici-
pal Special Taxing Units) is a
good way to fund road repairs
and upgrades, it would be better
to use state dollars to avoid the
tax burden an MSTU would im-
pose on Gilchrist County citi-
zens living in Spring Ridge.
Paving these roads would also
save general fund money pres-
ently being spent for repairs.
It is a privilege to serve you,
and as your County Commis-
sioner, I will continue to strive
to make informed decisions.
Thank You
Mitchell Gentry
Gilchrist County
Commissioner District 2


A Letter To,
The Editor
People who know me well
know that I speak out for chil-
dren' in our community, and I
feel compelled to address a
:situation which. has occurred in
our school system during the
past few months.
Trenton Elementary School is
a wonderful l place for children.
The teachers and staff are to be
.commended for the long hours
spent as they prepare the stu-
dents for the arduous task of'
state and local testing. They go
above and beyond to make
learning meaningful and enjoy-
able since they know. that we
educate the whole child and not
just teach texts and tests. The
TES administrators offer sup-
port and encouragement as the
job of educating the children
gets harder and harder ,each
year. and this help is greatly ap-
preciated .
.Most in our town know that
our school has gone from a C
school the first year to.A's and
one B ithe scores met the higher
standards that year. but did not
exceed by the required percent-
,age to keep the A from the pre-
vious year). It has taken every
grade level striving and refining
the curriculum to meet the needs
of all students. E ery grade
lecel will state that \without the
foundation of the pre ious,
Nears' teachers, their job would
be much harder or even impos-
sible. Building a foundation for
a child's education is like con-
structing something as impres-
sike as th,\,WorLdTrade Tov.ers
and like those might to\wrs, in
a 'er\ short time.. it can come
.crashing down.to ruins.
One of the' most outstanding
teachers in Gilchrist County is
being reassigned even though
she is needed desperately in her
current position. Teri Jones has
de oted hei life to teaching Pre-
kindergarten Special Needs.
Teaching to Teri is not just a job
that begins at 7:50 a.m. and
ends at 3120 p.m. for 180 school
days. Teaching these \ wonderful
young children is a mission.
God puts each person on this
great earth for a purpose. Some
people hear their calling and do
not go forth, but Teri knows
what she is to do with her life,
and she does it with gusto. Teri
Jones is the most highly.quali-
fied ESE classroom teacher in
our district, and it is no wonder
the special education director
would ,kant to place her in an-
other extremely difficult teach-
ing assignment I say another.

difficult teaching assignment
because many do not realize
how extremely difficult the as-
signment is 'that Teri currently
has. She, is so good at what she
does that she makes it look easy
and gives the impression that
"anyone could teach her class."
It is anything but easy, but she
loves teaching this class of pre-
school children. There should
be some consideration for a
teacher who, for the first time in
15 years, has refused a task
asked of her. Others are trained
for the position they want her to
take. However, there are no
other ESE'teachers that I know
who have all of Teri's special-
ized training to meet the needs
of the youngest learners in our
district and of those entering the.
Pre-Kindergarten Special Needs
class in August 2005. We have
all been told that ."change is
good" but I believe the sentence
should be "change can be
good." Change is not necessar-
ily good when something is be-
ing changed just for the sake of
changing things. If change is
good, then why are we not ask-
ing some of the most experi-
enced teachers in the district to
return to the classrooms that
have such high needs? We need
special education and speech
teachers every year but we do
not ask those at the district level
to "change" for the children's
needs. Would this not be in the
best.interest of the students for
them to return to the classrooms
they vacated decades ago? Of
course this is hot what they have
trained for during the"last 20
years. :Neither is the specialized
training Teri has had for the past
18 years in the area of ESE
Early Childhood:
Like all great educators, Teri
Jones is a student to her craft.
She is constantly workingg to
hone her skills so she can be the
best p-e-kindergarten special
heeds teacher that she can be.
She has a master's degree in.
physical impairments along
with a bachelor of arts in'ESE
and Pre-K ESE Endorsement.
She was on the team of teachers
from the Uniersity of Florida
whichh established the Pre-K
Special Needs program that \we.
know today. Nearly 12 Nears
ago, she began, at her own ex-
pense, taking sign language
courses to be better able to
communicate to her deaf and
hard of hearing students. She'

studenrs"'\'hod re~ 'ra.uage dec'"
played, as% well, and shared this
skill with instructional aides,
parents, and teachers who con-
tinue to use sign to this day.
The TES Sign Club under the
direction of Donna Jones would
not haxe had its roots had Teri
not used sign language w ith the
pre-k students who noved into
regular classrooms with an in-
terpreter. Ms. Donna Jones be-
gan teaching friends in the class
so the\ could communicate with
our deaf students under the en-
couragement and guidance of
Teri Jones.
Teri works With parents,
families, and staff of pre-k stu-
dents so they will have the so-
cial, language, motor, and aca-
demic skills so critical to
kindergarten and all upper
grades. Ternwas one of the first
teachers on campus to share her

knowledge of adaptive technol-
ogy with the other teachers.
Many teachers go to confer-
ences and workshops, but very
few share what they have
learned with more than a few
colleagues. Teri works with
teachers of all grades, sharing
what she has learned and how it
applies to students of all ages
and ability levels. She is in high
demand on staff by new and ex-
perienced teachers alike and
brings a wealth of knowledge
and experience that will be
sorely missed if she leaves to be
able to continue her avocation
of PKSN in another county.
As Chairman of the TES Ad-
visory Committee, I relied
heavily on Teri's input for
goals, objectives, and strategies
for getting higher scores for our
ESE population, as required by
the state and federal guidelines.
Teri's passion for early child-
hood ESE was evident as she
helped to write the mission
statement for our school. We
believe children become life-
long learners when taught in ap-
propriate educational settings by
teachers who truly love what
they do.
As a kindergarten teacher, I
feel lucky to have the students
who have had "Miss Teri" as
their teacher. She follows her
students' progress with each
regular education teacher in an
effort to keep these children on
track' and in the game. How
often have we heard her say,
"My kids can do what teachers
want. Sometimes we have to
find a different way, but they
,can learn!" I can't count how
many times she has offered to
make communication boards or
other manipulatives for students
in my room who were not in her
class but knew I did not know
exactly what to do. Over the
years Teri has spent a great deal
of her own money and time cre-
ating the hands-on units of
study for pre-kindergarten. She
generously shares books, props;
manipulatives, music, and ideas
with nearly every teacher on the
campus in an effort to help chil-
dren become life long learners.
She wants children to LOVE
learning, and she does all in her
power to provide this for the
students in our community,,
Many people do not realize
that teachers sign a contract to
teach. They can. be moved and
reassigned at a moment's notice
regardless of the quality of their
performance or for the duration
of their employment. Some
districts in which I have taught
used reassignments as punish-
ment for speaking out and for
standing up for personal beliefs.
Some have moved teachers to
the school located as far from
their homes as possible in an
Attempt to have them quit due to
the hardship- brought, on by the
commute. Teri may have gone
against the establishment but
not in an attempt to be disre-
spectful or negative. Just the
opposite is true. Teri was
trained to be an advocate for all
children. She is passionate in


her quest for the curriculum to
be developmentally appropriate
for children all children.
Would you want any less for
your child? Wouldn't you want
a teacher who believes with all
her heart and soul that children
need time to grow and to learn
in an atmosphere where they
can discover and explore? Do
you really want three and four
year old children sitting with
work sheets or drilled on aca-
demics? Of course we do not
want this type of pre-school
program for our little ones.
Children need more creative
teachers like Teri who know and
understand the needs of the stu-
dents, who have the knowledge
and practical skills to meet chil-
dren's needs, and who have
been in the classroom working
with these children on a day-to-
day basis for the last 15 years.
Parents have asked me what
can be done to keep Ms. Teri
Jones in Pre-K Special Needs,
and I have told them they
should talk to the people in
charge of the changes being
made. I believe in the chain of
command having lived as a
military wife for over 26 years.
Parents, teachers, staff, and con-
cerned family members have
asked for Teri to be left in her
current position. They ask, not
to try and tell district level per-
sonnel how to do their jobs.
They ask, not to befriend Teri.
They ask, not to get into a po-
litical quagmire. They ask for
the children. Some ask based
on the facts that their child is
successful because of he ffoun-
dation Teri gave their child.
They ask for those who are
coming. They ask because they
do not wanttdo see a'large crack
in the educational foundation of
our school. They ask because it
is the right thing to do!
My daddy told me to always
stand .up for what you feel is
right. Sometimes people will
not love or even like you, he
said. But... they. will respect
you. It is neither easy, nor is it
popular to stand up and speak
out. Teachers and staff in our
district have told me they would
love to speak out but they fear
for their own jobs and current
positions. They fear the retalia-
tion, which will be cast upon
them via lowered evaluations or
reassignments to positions they
do not wish to have. Many have
said that if Teri, who is so kind
and''fair, could be treated with
such disrespect then how could
they possibly speak out? I ask
how can you not? I ask what
did your daddy or your pastor
teach you? Mine taught me to
stand up for those who could
not. I was taught that to stand
up when someone is being mis-
treated is the right thing to do.
Under the guise of "putting the
best people in the hardest posi-
tions" our district personnel
have forgotten that classroom
teachers have professional goals
too. We, do not want to be the
principals, curriculum and in-
struction personnel, or even su-
perintendent. We love teaching
in the areas for which we have
trained. For classroom teachers
this also means ages and levels
of students. For Teri, this is


Pre-KSN. Our goals may not
seem as lofty as those who want
to go into middle management
but we, as classroom teachers,
feel that our goals have an even
higher calling than for those
who will be out of the class-
room. We feel we are the heart
and soul of the school for we
have our finger on the pulse of
the students. We do not want to
be in an office. We choose to
stay in the classroom. Teachers
are able to do many different
occupations but we choose to
teach. We choose to put in 60
plus hour weeks, holidays,
weekends, summers, and long
nights. We choose to be the
first line of contact with parents,
families, and the community.
Early childhood educators, like
Teri, choose to be in the paint,
mud, and Playdough as we
teach. We choose to stay with
the children because we love
what we do.
For a man who was quiet, my
daddy taught me some other
things. He told me to always be
willing to admit when you are
wrong. Be willing to go to the
person and tell them you are
sorry for whatever you had done
to wrong them. Have a firm
handshake, look people in the
eye, and be willing to change
your mind but not your ideals.
Everyone makes mistakes but
not everyone admits to them. It
takes a big person to say that
they. have "thought things over"
and decided to do something
different. It takes a big person
to agree that there is more than
one way to approach a problem.
He said the best bosses look to
the people who are doing the
job for suggestions and for
plans to make things better.
Our district has had a history for
over a decade of taking sugges-
tions from teachers on topics as
varied as building new schools
and how to obtain money to get
them to ways of bringing up
scores of their student popula-
tion and parent involvement.
Obviously, our district has had
an extremely good track record
since we are the only district in
the state to have had all schools
with A or B ratings for three
years in a row and to be housed
on each campus in new or
newly renovated buildings.
This did not happen overnight,
and it did not happen alone. It
did begin with a firm founda-
tion, and Teri Jones has been a
d 6IribdYt6 h f' "that' foundation'
in Gilchrist County. I would
ask the school board and district
personnel to reconsider keeping
this outstanding National Board
Certified Teacher of ESE early
.childhood in her current critical
needs area to continue helping
the children of Gilchrist County
for years to come. She will be
helping children in a Pre-KSN
classroom somewhere. Please
let it be here.

LOGICABIN QUILTERS


Aft-
1i+ ff9 e ,o.



Alice Mae Haire is always making one kind of quilt or
another. This one is a "Dutch Boy" and willgo to some
of her kin. Alice Mae has been in the Log Cabin Quilters
since October 7, 1983. She was one of the founding,
members.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, May 19't'at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. It was
a busy day. We had two big
rolls of batting that we order
from North Carolina that had
to be unrolled, cut, then'folded
and tied and put away. It
should last us for a year and
it's always great to get it out of
the way. I thank all the mem-
bers who got it all .done.
We now have five tables set
up with lots of odds and ends
such as fabric, patterns, books
and what have you., We do
have so much donated to us
and we use what we can but
there is always so much.
There were four big bags
brought in and we put that out.
We do use a lot of donated
fabric and make whatever we
can with it. Everything we
make stays here to pay our
bills and insurance and keep
supplies filled for luncheons
and v.thateer ,%e have going.
So come out and see if you can.
find something you can use.-
SMan ~\ ill be going on tours
and lacations and we do go


into a slow time but sometimes
we need that as we have had
the busiest season ever., We
hope everyone has a great time
and comes home with lots to
tell.
Lunch is so good. We do
enjoy each Thursday and see-
ing what each will bring.

warmly by staff members. The
acting director, Steve Wright,
gave us a brief synopsis of how
the Sheriff's Boys Ranch got
started.
It was founded in 1957, has a
capacity of 80 boys (who must
be willing to go there), the aver-
age stay is about one year, and
ages range from 8 to 18 years
old. There are a total of five
homes in Florida. Donors are.
needed. To find out more about
this 'worthy organization and
how you can help, please visit
their web site at
www.youthranches.org.
We toured the boys ranch
with one of the "cottage par-
ents." They graciously fixed a.
delicious dinner for us. We left
there with a deeper understand-
ing and appreciation for the job
that all of the staff members,.
along with the sheriffs in Flor-
ida, do for our youth.
Our next meeting will be
Monday, June 20th, at the'
Lighthouse Restaurant in Fan-
ning Springs. Hope to see you,
there!

Caitlin McLaughlin


Taking Time To Care
By Marilyn Runde
Nine-year-old Caitlin
McLaughlin is a student in Ms.
Hastings' third grade class at
Bell Elementary School. She
loves school, is a good student
and has lots of friends.
School is not her only
love..she loves helping others
and especially premature babies.
And that is why while many
other nine-year-olds were play-
ing or watching TV", Caitlin was
out in front of Bell High School
on Saturday, May 14'", from
9:00 a.m. until noon. selling
lemonade.
She made herself 'at home
among those selling odds and
ends in front of the school.
Maybe. you saw her as you
drove by or maybe you bought a
glass of tangy lemonade for 50
cents from her. She managed to
raise $16.50 to donate toward
the care of precious preemies at
Shands, whom she'd love to
visit
Caitlin has first-hand know%1-


edge of what families of pree-
mies go through. Her aunt,
Marilena Phillips, has had two
sets 'of premature twins. She
knows how long and expensive
the hospital care for these chil-
dren can be .
Caitlin is one of four children
and she lives with her grand-
mother, Janet Bass. Her
grandmother, who once was a
nurse, has helped to foster Cait-
lin's desire to become a pedia-
trician and to have a real con-
cern for preemies and cancer
patients.
Caitlin, like other little girls,
enjoys church, volleyball,
swimming, cheerleading and
playing with dolls. Having just
visited Sea World, she has
found something else she
loves...dolphins and killer
whales. She even is exploring
the idea of studying oceanogra-
phy.
Whatever she chooses to do
with her life her out-going, bub-
bly personality is bound to be an
asset.. And at a time when most
of what we hear about today's
young people is both disturbing
and sad, it is as refreshing as a
glass of lemonade to knov. that
at least one little girl is willing
to'take time to care.

Take Stock In
Children FelloWship.
Dinner:
Friday night, May 13th, the
Take Stock In Children scholar-
ship program held a fellowship
dinner for all mentor's scholar-
ship students and their families
at the Trenton United Methodist
Church.
Ms. Deborah Douglas, Gil-
christ County's TSIC Repre-


sentative, started the program by
sharing with the large group that
"each of us has something
unique to offer the world if only
we have the courage to dream
and the determination to make
our dreams come true."
Ms. Douglas recognized each
mentor and a music selection
was presented by Ms. Karla
Harville, an eleventh grader
from Bell High School. Mr.
Kenny Fuquay received the Gil-
christ County's Mentor of the
Year award for 2005. A
slideshow was presented as a
"thank you" to the mentors.
Ms. Douglas expressed her ap-
preciation to the mentors for
their dedication and commit-
ment to the program. She stated
that "through their participation
the program was a success."
Ms. Douglas' daughter, Rachel
Douglas, a first grader from Bell
Elementary recited a simple
poem about a "sentence" and
sang a song titled "I am a
Promise." Another Bell Ele-
mentary student, Ms. Brooke
Hilliard, a fifth grader, per-
formed "Candle on the Water"
from the Disney movie Pete's
Dragon.
Ms. Douglas presented the
graduating senior's with a gift
pack, complete with a special.
"survival kit," to help them pre-
pare for their new journey into
college life.
Everyone enjoyed the evening
and the good food, including the
surprise slideshow presentation
.in honor of the graduating .sen-
iors. Ms. Douglas' message to
the students, "May you always
fulfill every dream, in your
heart, reach every goal you pur-
-sue, and may graduation BE the
wonderful START of a bright,
and happy future for you."
- "Take Stock In Children" is a
statewide, nonprofit program
that provides, deserving lo\\-
income children with college
scholarships and guidance from
caring mentors., Once a student
is identified and selected,, they
must sign a contract agreeing to
stay drug and crime free, main-
tain satisfactory grades, exhibit
good behavior, have a financial
need and be determined to suc-
ceed. The program operates in
more than 50 Florida counties,
and is the premier mentoring,
program in the State of Florida.
At the present time, eighth
grade students are completing
.ch-'ljrship applicati ons to be
turned into the'Middle School
guidance Counselors this


month. New scholarships will
be awarded to our county and
students will be signed next fall
and the need for more mentors
will develop. Ms. Douglas, says
"We are touching tomorrow
with today's future!" If anyone
is interested in learning more
about this program or would be
able to make a commitment to
donate one (1) hour a week of
their time to become a mentor
for a student, she can be con-
tacted at Gilchrist County
Schools (352) 463-3455.. You
CAN make a.difference!!!

GREETINGS
Monday, May 30th, is Memo-
rial Day, so in respect for all the
deceased veterans, be sure to
get Old Glory out but be sure to
fly it half-staff 'til noon. The
following poem by James J.
Metcalfe sums up Memorial
Day quite well.


God Loves Them All
They sleep in peace who
bravely faced the blazing guns
of war...
That we might live and set
aside our hates for evermore...
They are at rest beneath the
sun, the rain, the wind and
snow...
Who did not ask for honors or


the medals we bestow...
Their only purpose was to serve
the land they loved so well...
And multiply the magic tones
of freedoms' lofty bell...
We praise them for their valor
and the sacrifice they made...
And to the end of time their
deeds will hold the highest
grade...
God, love their souls whose
lives became the patriotic
price...
And help us to be worthy
of...their noble sacrifice...
James J. Metcalfe

Efficiency is avoiding extra
work by doing it right the
first time...

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to John A.
Gidley (84) of Bell on May
26th; to Regg Castor of Wac-
casassa Lake on May 31'...
"May you both have a nice day
celebrating!"

Being told something for your
own good seldom does you
any...

ANNIVERSARY
Happy 30th Anniversary to
Willie and Carol Coates of
Waccasassa Lake on. May
31s... "Have a lovely day cele-
brating!"

As a rule, anything that is
shouted or whispered isn't
worth hearing...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Printed by Samuel Kneeland
and Timothy Green in Boston
in the mid 1700s, the first Bible
was published for Daniel
Henchman.

Listening, not imitation, may
be the most sincere form of
flattery...

RIB TICKLERS
Three old friends are at the
doctor's office taking a memory
test.
The doctor says to the first
one, "What's three times
three?"
"274," he answers.
"Hm." The doctor turns to
'&


-


the second man. "What's three
times three?"
"Tuesday," he replies.
"What's three times three?"
the doctor asks the last man.
"Nine," he answers.
"Great," the doctor says.
"How did you get that?"
"Simple. I subtracted 274
from Tuesday."

Just a few weeks after taking
a job as a security guard, my
husband announced that he'd
been fired.
"What happened?" I asked.
He explained that he'd fallen
asleep at his desk and someone
broke into the building.
"But you're a light sleeper," I
said, ."I'm surprised the sound
of the guy breaking in didn't
wake you up."
"I didn't get fired for falling
asleep," he confessed to me.
"I was fired for wearing my
earplugs."

I pulled up to a parking meter
recently, only to realize I didn't
have any coins. As I got out of
my car, I saw a meter maid
heading my way.
"I'm just going to get
change," I called out.
"If there's no quarter in the
meter by the time I get there,
I'll have to give you a ticket,"
she yelled back to me.
Quickly running into a
nearby coffee shop, I ordered a
coffee. The waitress, seeing a
$20 bill in my hand, asked if I
had anything smaller.
"I'm sorry, I don't."
"It's your lucky day, then,"
she said, handing me the coffee.
"We don't have any change, so
your coffee is on the house!"

I was editing classified ads
for a small-town newspaper
when a man called to place an
ad.
"It should read," he said,
"'Free to good home. Golden
retriever. Will eat anything,
loves children."

When I was a kid, we had a
quicksand box in our backyard.
I was an only child, eventually.

Brooding over troubles is a
good way to make them
hatch...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Savor the Moments of This
Day
Savor the moments of this day
and heal the wounds of yester-
day.
Linger where the lilac grows to
share a dream the blue bird
knows.
Rest awhile beside a brook -
it's surely worth a second look.
The way you spend your time
today determines what you take
away.
Sow a seed and say a prayer for
God will bring a harvest
there...
Savor the moments of this day
and heat the wounds of
yesterday.

AARP News
The meeting of the Gilchrist
County: AARP Chapter #2133
on May 17th, besides being the
last meeting before the summer
break, was a celebration of the
30th anniversary of the forma-
tion of the chapter by some very
iarsiehted county residents.
President Geneva Cornwell
promised a busy program in-
cluding the honoring of several
of the founding members. The
chapter members hate contrib-
uted a: great deal to the welfare
of county members by volun-
teering their time, working to-
gether to make our county a
better place to live,. Service
hours put in to as-izt thcsr in
need milude reading to shut-ins.
drik ing someone to the doctor's
appointment or to church, sort-
ing books in a library, helping
to get a library where none ex-
isted, sending out get well cards
or telephoning someone to let
them know they are not forgot-
ten by their friends. Thirty
years of commitment! What a
wonderful chapter we have in-
herited.:
. Some of the founding mem-
bers are still with us but not
necessarily active in the chapter.
Elma Roberts and her late hus-
band Lee'Roberts were. tireless
workers as were Marion and
Odell Mikell. Special certifi-
cates had been prepared and
President Cornwell was proud
to have the pleasure of present-
ing them to Elma and Marion.
Special certificates were also
prepared for several of the
members who areover 90 years
of age and still active in the
chapter. Iris Roberts is the cur-
rent treasurer. She also had the
cake made especially for this
occasion. Lillian Bemis serves
on the Hostess Committee each
meeting and Kathleen Willinims
recently retired as our Sunshine
and Shadows Lady after many
years of sending out get well
and condolence cards to mem-
bers.
'There were so many more re-
ports of great interest during the
meeting as well as a compre-
hensive update of the AARP's
stand on the current changes
being considered by Congress
from Charles Milstead, State
Legislative Chairman. It will
take another column to publish
them at a later date.
The Gilchrist chapter is a
really active and contributing
factor in the county and it is
well worth supporting. New'
members are always made wel-
come. There is not another
meeting planned until Septem-
ber but the board will be work-
ing to bring you updates of leg-
islation affecting seniors
throughout the summer.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
It was an especially sunny
morning on Wednesday, May
18th as 18 Joyful Hearts gath-
ered together at the fire station
on CR 138. We all arrive at
about the same time so you can
imagine the scene...much like a
gaggle of geese flitting around,
hugging and catching up on the
latest goings on.
As we settled into our work
mode, Evelyn announced that
she had baked us a batch of
cookies to share. She said she
was calling them her mystery
cookies. We were to sample
them then write what you
thought the mystery ingredient
in the cookies was, along with
your name. There was to be a
prize for the one who correctly
guessed it.
The cookies were delicious,
sort of a spicy flavor, I thought.
They had fat plump raisins and
were soft. Now, my personal
preference is crisp cookies but
these were very good. Well
folks, none of us great cooks
and even greater eaters even
came close. If any of us would
have just said, "It could be
anything from soup to nuts"
we'd of come close; but no one
did. Have you guessed now that
I've given you a clue? If you
guessed soup, you're right as
rain...tomato soup to be exact.
Now doesn't that take the cake
or the cookie as the case may
be?
We'll- have to get Evelyn to
give us the recipe so I can share
it with you. And speaking of
cookies, am I the only one that
has noticed a phenomenon, that
I can't explain, whereby soft
cookies, when they get stale,
turn hard. Yet, when hard
cookies get stale they turn soft.
Think about it...but not for too
long 'cause that sort of thinking
can drive you crazy.
Well, we settled down to
work and believe it or not Alice
Binns was not Swedish Weav-
ing. She was hooking a darling
latch-hook rug of kittens. How-
ever, Mary Lou Ryder, Cathy
Strom, Lu Rowland'and Bonnie
Edwards picked up the gauntlet
and ran with it.
Ann Mangone, Elaine Ne-
meth, Pat Luka, and Maxine
Hale all worked on the club
quilt, which I understand is
nearly finished. Our rather
eclectic quilt of Victorian hats,
shoes, purses, and fans will go
into the frame next. It should
be a hoot and a half.

Diana Lynn and I stuck with our
cross-stitch embroidery work
while Heidi Kamp continued to
crochet on, what I call, her
stained glass throw. Sylvia
Arthur, who has just learned to
crochet, thanks to Heidi, fin-
ished her sampler and is ready
to tackle a real "some-
thing"...way to go!
Paulene Martin was crochet-
ing baby hats for newborns, Al-
berta Swanner was making
lovely plastic canvas cross
bookmarks and Evelyn Wood
was working on a charming
quilt, "Grandma's Flower Gar-
den," with delicate old fash-
ioned fabric. It is going to be
just delightful when finished.
Before you knew it, tummies
were making those funny noises
and we knew it was time for
lunch. Because we still had ice
cream and all the trimmings, of
course, we treated ourselves to
sundaes...yummy, yummy.
After good-byes, some of us
stayed to decorate for Armed
Forces Day, Memorial Day and
even the 4th of July: It looked
quite grand and it just so hap-
pened that Armed Forces Day
fell on Saturday, May 21t"
which was the day of the pan-
cake breakfast and chicken and
rice dinner at the fire station.
Well, the rain we had on Sat-
urday was a real blessing. That
evening I sat for a spell out in
the swing. There was a soft
cool breeze and the air smelled
fresh and sweet with all the dust
washed away. The wind chimes
were all in harmony with the
rustling leaves as the wind blew
through.
I could hear the ripple of the
water in the pond as it splashed
from the fairy's seashell and
landed in the midst of the lush
growth of plants. It's a small
pond but the critters love to
drink from it and the frogs that
gather there sound like a barber
shop quartet. Some sing so-
,prano, some tenor, some bari-
tone and the toads of course,
sing bass.
As I'sat in the swing realizing
how blessed I am to be in a
place where God's handiwork
surrounds of very side, a gentle
breeze washed over me and
filled my soul with peace. I
looked up but the stars were
covered with a blanket of clouds
but I knew they were there.
And I thought isn't that the
way it is during the cloudy
storms of life? We can't always
see God because of the clouds
but He's always there. And
when I cannot see then I must
believe.
Take time to step outside of
an evening and drink in His
.glory. Put your cares in His
hands and fill your heart with
peace and joy.
'Til next time,
A Joyful Heart

In Memory Of Laura
Jordan Edwards
March 25, 1966 -
May 30, 2003
Forever in our hearts. Gone
but never forgotten.
On May 30, 2003 you left us
so suddenly. It has been the
longest two years of our lives.
So many times, people are for-
gotten after they leave this
world, but you will never be
forgotten. Not a day goes by
that we don't think about you
and wish you were still with us.
Many tears will always be shed
because you're gone. We may
never be able to accept in our
hearts, that you are gone, but it's
something we have to cope with
on an everyday basis. You will
remain in our hearts until we
take our last breath.
When I see your students
from Bell Elementary School,
they still call me Ms. Edwards'
Mother. It makes us really
proud that even the students re-
member. Even though a big
part of us is forever missing be-
cause you are gone, we know
we will see you again.
We Love You,
Dad, Mom, Nick and Cory


A Card Of Thanks
Our family would like to ex-
press our heartfelt thanks for the
acts of kindness shown to us
during the loss of our loved one,
Arline Luzader-Sorrell. We
deeply appreciate the cards,
flowers, phone' calls, visits, food
but most importantly your
prayers during this time. A spe-
cial thank you to Pastor David
,Jones for uplifting her and us
during her illness with visits arid
prayers and the wonderful

Bell Drops Victories
To Mayo And
Branford In
Saturday Night
Jamboree Action
By Journal staff writer
The Bell Bulldogs competed
in a four-team football jamboree
Saturday night in Mayo.
Lafayette County (Mayo)
hosted the Bell Bulldogs in the
first half of play.
Mayo scored the first points
of the game in the first quarter.
The Bulldogs played aggressive
and their passing attack worked
well as Zane Walker pulled in a
pass from a quarterback Josh
Mast. With only moments left in
the first quarter the Bulldogs
threatened to score as #21,
Heath Hart caught a pass.
In the second quarter Mayo
scored two touchdowns.
In the final minutes of the
game Bell's Lee Carlisle caught
a pass and drove to the Hornet's
one-yard-line. On the following
play Josh Teckenbrock scored
for the Bulldogs. Todd Scaggs
kicked an extra point to give the
Bulldogs 7 points.
The Bulldogs defense played
well as they intercepted several
Hornet passes, but in the end
Mayo came out on top 19 to 7.
Bell Vs Branford
In the third game of the
jamboree. Bell and Branford
played two quarters.
The Bulldogs jumped out to

the Bulldogs played Mayo in one half. Photo by Anna Wild.


an early lead as Brandon
Ridgeway scored on a pass from
quarterback Paul Clark. Bell
went up 7-0 following the extra
point.
Branford scored a
touchdown later in the first
quarter and tied the score 7-7.
In the second quarter the
Bucs took a 14-7 lead. Later in
the second period, Bell's
defense caused a Buc's turnover
and recovered the loose ball.
The Bulldogs moved the
football down near the end zone


but was unable to score the
touchdown.
Branford scored another
touchdown late in the game to
increase their lead to 21-7.
Bell's defense was led by
Mitchell Bell with six tackles,
Todd Scaggs had eight tackles,
Daniel Teckenbrock had eight
tackles, Lee Carlisle had seven
tackles, Josh Teckenbrock had
six tackles, and Heath Hart had
five tackles.


Trenton Tigers
Defeat Bronson
(Continued from Section A,
Page One)
a touchdown. Jenkins again split
the up-rights to give the Tigers a
28-14 victory.
Bronson's Junior Varsity
was led on defense by Virgil
Greenlee's two interceptions.
Rodolfo Contreres set the pace
for the offense rushing 8 times
for 35-yards.


Suwannee River
Shrine Club Puts
Kids First
(Continued from Section A,
Page One)
provided with housing accom-
modations while they are with
their child. WOW!!
If you have a child who could
benefit from the Shriners Hos-
pitals please call Sam Ferguson,
Shrine Hospital Coordinator, at
(352) 463-1409. He will be
more than happy to talk to you
and do whatever the Shriners
can to help.
Obviously the task of raising
funds to support such an amaz-
ing network sounds incredible.
Luckily the individuals who
belong to the Shrine Club are
dedicated. Our Shriners main
fund-raiser is the Suwannee
River Shrine Club Kid's Fishing
Tournament. They sell ads in
the Fishing Tournament Book to
raise money to pay for the tour-
nament and donate to the hos-
pitals. Sam Ferguson is the man
in charge of this event and he is
happy to say, "Most people just
ask if the price of the ad is the
same" and they will sign up
again or buy a larger ad. Some
people even donate $500 for a
$100 full page ad; it's great'to
find individuals who understand
the importance of the Shriners."
Mr. Ferguson explained that
over the past 17 years they have
raised about $160,000 for the
Shrine Hospitals for Children by


holding this fishing tournament.
The Shriners also raise money
with paper drives. You may see
the guys with the burgundy up-
side down flower pot looking
hats in front of grocery stores
asking for a donation. They
will give you a newspaper with
information on where your do-
nation goes and what impact it
has in the lives of the children
and their families. Their last
regular fund-raiser is their cane
grinding/cane syrup sales.
The Ladies of the Shrine also
participate in this by having
various crafts available for sale.
Mrs. Ellis, the Shrine Club
Presidents wife, explained that
they call the schools to offer the
children to come and see the
cane grinding and they may also
Christmas shop for their family
at the craft fair.
The 18'h Annual Fishing
Tournament will be held Satur-
day, June 4th, so mark your cal-
endars. The tournament will
start just before 6:00 a.m. at the
Hart Springs boat ramp. Boats
are allowed to leave dock at first
safe light (normally 6:00 a.m.)
and will need to be back by
noon for weigh in. The cost is
$25 per child (one child/one
adult per boat) and each child
will receive a special "Gold
Hook Award" cap and all par-
ticipants are awarded a new rod


and reel and a participation tro-
phy. Awards are given for the
highest total boat weight, largest
trash fish, and largest brim. All
participants are also entered into
a drawing for a trolling motor.
It's great fun for the kid's and a
great way to spend some quiet
quality time with your child.
Children are welcome from ages
5 16. Come out and support a
great cause and meet some
Shriners.

Club President Jack Ellis ex-
plained that the Shriners are
trying to increase their member-
ship and attract younger mem-
bers. To become a Shriner you
must first become a member of
the Masonic Lodge. These are
fraternal organizations for men
of good character. "To be one
ask one," that's how you join,
and the response was automatic
from both Mr. Ellis and Mr.
Ferguson. Mr. Ellis wanted any
Shriners that have moved into
the Tri-County area to contact
him if they would like to keep
their membership active. If you
don't already "know one to ask"
or are not sure if you know one,
then feel free to talk to Mr.
Ellis, club president, at (352)
542-9827.

POST 91 NEWS
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
My thanks go to Post 91 Adjutant, Dean Williams, for filling in for
me last weekend with the Post 91 News. I had been out of town for
the weekend and still a little under the weather when I returned, and
Dean graciously picked up the slack and 'got out the News'.
Because the regular monthly meeting on June 11th will be mainly
Installations, all Post business will be conducted at the Executive
Committee meeting on Thursday, June 9th, at the Canton House
Restaurant on East Wade Street (SR-26) in Trenton. We will meet at
7:00 PM. One order of business will be the recent changes made to
the Post by-laws. The Post Adjutant will read these changes and the
vote will take place at the July monthly meeting. All Legionnaires are
invited to attend these meetings.
This weekend is a busy one. The "beginning of the summer
season" is a long weekend with picnics and swimming parties, and all
manner of festivities. Many communities and churches will celebrate
Memorial Day on Sunday, May 29th, and many folks will have to go
to work on Monday as usual. But here in Gilchrist County, there will
be a Memorial Day parade on Memorial Day, Monday, May 30th,
and the parade will begin at 10:00 AM in the Trenton High School
parking lot on US-129, just across from the ACE Hardware Store.
The parade will go just past the Courthouse where.the Memorial Day
program will be held. The Gilchrist County Historical Society in
coordination with other area organizations has a program to honor
our Veterans on this Memorial Day and this group of organizers has
also planned a dinner for the veterans right after the program. The
dinner will be down at the Trenton Community Center just a few
blocks south of the courthouse. The LifeSouth Bloodmobile will be
on site for those intrepid individuals that pause to give the "gift of
life" and donate blood. The folks at the Civitan Center in Gainesville,
tell us that each donation of blood saves three lives! That just one
pint can make that much of a difference is amazing, and our bodies
can replace that much easily in less than eight weeks in a normal
course of life. We replace these blood cells all the time, even if we
don't donate, so why not give a little and help someone else? You get
a free cholesterol screening and a T-shirt or ball cap, to boot! If you
are scared of needles, just don't look!
The Memorial Day program will include the dedication of a
monument in remembrance of our veterans, and is the reason for this
'holiday". So many people view the Memorial Day weekend as a
time to take the boat out, to get out the grill, have friends over for a
cook-out and in general have a good time. These things are good to
do, but let us stop and remember those men and women in uniform
that served to make it possible to enjoy these freedoms. The
well-used line "All gave some, some gave All" comes to mind so
many times when thinking of Memorial Day. Our nation has men and
women on a war-time footing today, and casualties are mounting.
Plan your gatherings with friends and family, but be sure to make
time to remember our Veterans and Comrades, and their families too.
This will be a difficult weekend for some families, so stand ready to
lend a hand, or a shoulder to lean on because you can, because you
are able, because you understand and can remember why. Remember
our Armed Forces all over the 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 in
any way you can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely.
