Suwannee River Shrine Club Holds

Successful Gold Hook Kids Fishing

Tournament Saturday


Clearwater Woman Dies After

Being Struck By A Tree While

Camping In Ginnie Springs


By Rayanne Ferguson
We were there! We saw it
all! The rumor on the street is
not a rumor...This was really a
great way to spend your Satur-
day. All day they thought it
would rain.
At one point they had to find
shelter from a small shower.
But for the most part, Saturday,
June 4, 2005 was one of the
BEST fishing days on the Su-
wannee River. It was also a
spectacular day for the Shriners
as they topped $10,000 on this
fund-raiser.
The Suwannee River
Shriner's held their 18th annual
"Gold Hook Award" Kids
Fishing Tournament down at the
Hart Springs boat ramp Satur-
day. The boaters rolled in about
4:45 a.m. (That's early but we
were there.) Shriners greeted
them with helping hands getting
every boat launched and ready
for the safe starting time of 6:30
a.m. From that point on, the
young fishers and their partners
were on their own (That was
cool. we were there.) Children,
ages 5 to 16 were up early, ea-
ger to drop a hook in the after .
The Shriners did not see them
again until they started rolling
back in around 11:00 a.m.
Twenty-six boat entries returned
safely to the banks of the Su-
wannee, hauling bags, buckets
and coolers filled with fish.
There were hundreds of fish
brought to weigh-in where No-
ble Sam Ferguson, tournament
chairman, Mike Guy, Fish and
Game Wildlife Officer, and
David Rhodes, previous tour-
nament participant, were stand-
ing .in AWE at the scales won-
dering if all the fish would even
fit on the scales. Sam com-
mented that he had never seen
so many bream at one time.
Over 35 pounds of fish came in
on one boat. Sit back, close
your eyes and just imagine a
five-gallon bucket filled with
"hand size" bream. (That's a lot
of fish totaling 35 pounds-
WOW! We were there).
At 1:00 p.m. trophies, were
given in several categories.
Trophies for the "Total Boat
Weight" in the five to eight-
year-old category were: first
place, Austin Parsells (10
pounds, 4 ounces); second
place, Mill Lang (7 pounds, 9
ounces); third place, Christo-
pher Fisher (6 pounds, 12
ounces); 9-12-year-old cate-
gory: first place, Austin Bran-
nin (35 pounds, 14 ounces);
second place, Orrie Roberts (18
pounds, 1 ounce); third place,
Travis Tumlin (17 pounds, 1
ounce); and in the 12-16-year-
old category were: first place,
Kirby Davis (26 pounds, 11
ounces); second place, Eric Rain
(19 pounds, 8 ounces); and third
place, Justin Bryant (16
pounds).
The winners in each category
for the "Largest Bream" in the
5-to-8-year olds: Austin Parsells
(15 ounces); 9-12 years, Tyler
Sullivan (13 ounces); and 13-16
years, (tied with a 12 ounce
bream), Justin Bryant and Will
Carver. A trophy was also
given for the "Largest Bass" to
Eric Rain with a bass weighing
2 pounds, 3 ounces, and one for
the "Largest Trash Fish" to
Trisha Fisher with a mudfish
weighing 7 pounds, 8 ounces.
The "Trolling Motor" donated
each year by Wal-Mart in
Chiefland was presented to a
tournament participant of sev-
eral years now, Kyle Brown, 14,
of Trenton. The behind the

The Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office reported that a
Clearwater woman was camp-
ing with some friends when she
was struck by tree limbs from a
falling tree and died on Sunday
in a Gainesville hospital.
Deanna Hatchell, 31, of
Clearwater, was staying over-
night in a camping area known
as Turkey Roost in the Ginnie
Springs Park when an 80-foot
water oak tree broke off at the
trunk and fell into the camping
area. Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Investigator Bryant Frye re-
ported that two off-duty Florida
Highway Patrol officers were in
the park providing security
when the accident occurred
around 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
The security officers con-
tacted Gilchrist County 911.

arrest last year on grand theft
charges. He claimed that he had
to move to that area to find
work as a mechanic to support
his three young children. Palm
Beach County deputies arrested
him May 27t for failing to file
tax returns and failing to pay
sales tax in the amount of
$188,343.33.
While operating Aqua Marine
Sales and Service in Chiefland,


Alexander allegedly kept tax
money collected from the sale
of dozens of boats and various
other marine equipment.. The
law states that sales tax is the

Chelsea Stump Is Crowned

2005 Chiefland Watermelon

Festival Queen


By Anna Wild
On Saturday, June 4, 2005, 12
young ladies competed for the
coveted Miss Chiefland Water-
melon Queen. The girls donned
smiles and waved in the parade
Saturday morning then met with
the judges and women of the
Chiefland Woman's Club for
interviews. That evening they
showed off beautiful gowns at
the Tommy Usher Pineland
Center for the final contest.
Each girl had a question to an-
swer that they had no time to
prepare for. Everyone did great,


but a couple stood out from the
crowd. In the end, the 2005
Chiefland Watermelon Queen
was Chelsea Lynn Stump who
was sponsored by Pat's Place &
Morehead Auctions.
Chelsea's favorite food is
watermelon (of course), her fa-
vorite color is green, her favor-
ite place to visit is the Suwan-
nee River, and her favorite
activity is cooking. She is a 17-
year-old graduate of Chiefland
High School and plans to attend
Santa Fe Community College.


She also enjoys acting with the
Suwannee Valley Players in
Chiefland and likes to try new
things.
The first runner-up was Jas-
mine Ward, sponsored by Su-
wannee Bend Services; second
runner-up was Kyra Sears,
sponsored by Hudson Farms.
The contestants picked Kelly
Braswell as Miss Congeniality.
Kelly was sponsored by the
Chiefland Athletic Association.
Everyone did a great job and

After four years of gathering information and pictures, and a year and a half of editing,
Gilchrist County: Its History and Its People is finally here. It contains over 1,000
photographs of local residents, both past and present. It is a summary of the first book,
printed in the 1980s, and continues on to 2004. It includes an added section of local fam-
ily biographies. The Gilchrist County Woman's Club feels that it adds to the charm of the
book, which is beautifully bound in a green hard cover with easy-to-read print. Pre-
ordered copies may be picked up at the Gilchrist County Courthouse on Tuesdays and
Thursday between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. in Room 133. There are a few extras for sale
but they will not last long. This is a limited edition with only 500 printed.

Some of the residents in the
county that have to travel the
secondary county paved roads
think that those roads need to be
repaired. Several of the roads
which were used to detour traf-
fic around the state roads that
were underwater during the
S2004 hurricane season have
continued to deteriorate on the
shoulders. Through the DOT
SCOPE program, if these roads
are selected by the commission
and submitted to the DOT for
consideration, maybe they will
be repaired,
I think the commission is
willing to repair the roads in the
Spring Ridge subdivision, but
some of the board members feel
that roads which have a greater
level of travel should be consid-
ered as a higher priority.

audacity of House members as
they literally discounted the sac-
rifices of every service person,
active and retired, with the out-
come of their votes on several
significant military issues. In
summary, they voted on the
following as such:
*They voted (390-39) to ap-
prove an increase of the 2006
military budget by $20 billion,
with an additional $49 billion
for Iraq and Afghanistan and a
3.1 military pay hike (all local
representatives voted "yes").
*They refused (211-218) to
expand TRICARE, the military
health plan, to cover the Guard
and Reserves as it covers active
duty personnel (all local voted
"yes," except Crenshaw and
Stems, who voted "no"):
*They refused (213-214) to
raise spending by $53 million
for medical care for troops re-
turning from Afghanistan and
Iraq, which would have in-
cluded $8 million for combat
trauma and $9 million for pros-
thetics (local Democrat repre-
sentatives voted "yes," local
Republican representatives
voted "no"). This would have
been paid for from funds saved
frdm base closings. A delay by
one year of base closings was
also refused (112-316).
I also noted in Monday's Sun
(7a) that the Bush administra-
tion has proposed to halt con-
struction of state veterans nurs-
ing homes and plans to cut the
amount of beds in Florida from
36,000 to 22,228 by 2013.
In light of these facts, it ap-
pears that although these politi-
cians are willing to continue to
finance wars while fattening the
coffers of many private compa-
nies, they demonstrate no desire.
to support the service people af-
fected by these conflicts by
voting to refuse to fund the vital
services required by military
personnel when their tour of
duty is over.
On a more personal and local
note, I was,also saddened by the
lack of turnout for a local Me-
morial Day'parade in my little
town of Trenton. Now I've at-
tended homecoming parades for
both Gilchrist County high
schools and seen the streets
lined with hundreds, if not thou-
sands of people. Yet on this
Monday morning, there could
,, b I ha \e been moire hanr '50
people .' .it il tpo receive' the
many veterans who came to
march in the parade. The turn-
out was somewhat better for a
ceremony held at the court-
house, and several ROTC mem-
bers took time out of their day
patriotism, to present the colors, but neither

cles and every year by local, former
emorating teacher Dan Taylor, who puts
is a holi- his heart and soul into this won-
e of hon- derful event. For those of us
ve given who attended, our hearts

hree-day to the stories of and joined with
ne. the many elderly veterans who

I read the those who have given their lives
umn fea- for this country.
Sunday's Another issue that has been,
believe the the subject of much discussion


lately was put into stark per-
spective recently by an e-mail
which stated that years ago con-
gresspersons voted in a separate
retirement plan for themselves,
and have never felt the need to
change it. They pay not one
cent in Social Security, but con-
tinue to draw the same pay they
made in office until they die.
The example given was that
Senator Byrd and Congressman
can expect to draw seven mil-
lion, eight hundred thousand
dollars during the last years of
their lives, while younger dig-
nitaries will receive even more.
The average worker, on the
other hand, would collect an av-
erage of $1,000 a month after
paying into Social Security
every paycheck of their lives.
In other words, we would have
to collect our average of $1,000
monthly benefits for 68 years
and one month to equal Senator

In closing, I would like to of-

First, maybe next year more
people will take time out of

those who have died to protect
our freedoms. More impor-
tantly, take the time to contact
your lawmakers and tell them
how disheartened you are by
their decisions and remind them
that you are paying attention to
what is happening in politics
and will remember their part in
making these decisions the next
time you vote. Lastly, make.
sure you do vote in future elec-
tions. After all, that is what
these service people have served
and given their lives' for! -

Modesty Is A Christian Virtue
(Kent Heaton)


Modesty is not a word that is recognized in our
society today nor is the concept of being modest a
thought that people think about. It does not take
long to see how people dress to understand that
we are loosing any sense of shame. The irony of
modesty is that when civilizations are found in a
primitive state, they generally are unclothed. The
first thing we do to "civilize" them is to clothe
them and bring them to a country where we are
trying to, take all of our clothes off. We are in a
greater state of undress today than ever before. A
visit to the mall will find half-clad, nearly naked,
overexposed men and women walking about with
no shame and no clothes.
Modesty is a virtue that is found in children of
God. This is qualified by those children of God
who are seeking to follow the teachings of God in
His word and not the norms of society. Being a
virtue of children of God does not mean that all
Christians wear modest apparel they do not!
This is where the challenge comes in trying to
teach and instruct those who should know better
how to dress. Many Christians are unaware of or
rebellious to the teaching of God concerning what
we are to put on our bodies. They go about half-
naked, exposed and showing their bodies to the
world with no shame of their apparel before God.
Genesis 1 3 is where we must begin to under-
stand the shame of nakedness. After God made
woman and brought her to the man, "they were
both naked, the man and his wife, and were not
ashamed" (Genesis 2:25). The third chapter of
Genesis reveals the beginning of man's departure
from God's word when Eve took of the forbidden
fruit and gave some to Adam to eat. "And the
eyes of them both were opened, and they knew
that they were naked; and they sewed fig leaves
together, and made themselves aprons" (Genesis
3:7).
The first thing Adam and Eve realized when sin


entered their lives was their nakedness. There was
no shame in 2:25 but now there was shame.at being
uncovered. When they heard "the sound of the
Lord God walking in the garden" they hid them-
selves because they were naked "I heard thy
voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I
was naked; and I hid myself" (Genesis 3:10).
They tried to cover themselves but still felt'shame
at their nakedness (Genesis 3:7). The text shows in
Genesis 3:21 that God gave them a covering to take
away theip shame when he made Adam and Eve
"tunics of skin, and clothed them."
Adam and Eve sewed fig leaves together for
coverings but they were still naked. God acknowl-
edged their nakedness in making them garments to
cover their bodies. God wants people to cover
themselves up. Adam was standing in the garden
with only a covering for his waist and was naked.
Men who go around today without their shirts on
are as naked as a woman going about without a top
on in the eyes of God. The apostle Peter was fish-
ing with a loin cloth on and when he realized Jesus
was on the shore, he put on his outer garment (John
21:7). We need a lot more people like Peter today
who respect Jesus Christ in their manner of dress.
How short is short? The Bible reveals what God
considers naked to answer this question. In Exodus
20:26, the priest were forbidden to "go up by steps
unto mine altar, that thy nakedness be not discov-
ered." Part of their garments were "linen breeches
to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto
the thighs they shall reach" (Exodus 28:42). Ex-
posing the thigh (between the knee and the hip) is
nakedness according to Isaiah 47:2-3. The Chris-
tian who wears a bathing suit exposing the thigh is
naked in the eyes of God. Wearing short-shorts,
mini-skirts or any apparel that exposes the thigh is
naked in the eyes of God. The Christian lives by a
higher virtue. (Continued next week)

By Anna Wild
On Wednesday, June 1s', Lt.
Roger Hemond with the Gil-
christ County Sheriffs Depart-
ment and Chairman of Toys for
Tots through the Tri-County
Marine Corps League was hon-
ored to accept a donation from
the residents at Ayers Health &
Rehabilitation Center. The resi-
dents had been making teddy


bears for the past six weeks.
They were all so proud of their
bears that they even invited
family to come in and see what
they had made. The residents
made a total' of 17 bears and
when Lt. Hemond thanked therm
for their wonderful gift they all
smiled.
Lisa Anguish, assistant ac-
tivities director, learned about
the Marine Corps League after
speaking to Sheriff Turner about
the project their residents were
working on. Sheriff Turner was
happy to refer Lisa to Lt.
Hemond, knowing the bears

Hemond informed the residents
the bears would go toward the

make the lives of 17 children

Lisa was proud to say the
residents wanted another project
and they have decided to start
making a quilt to display in the
center. They expect this project
to take longer than six weeks
but know it will be fun. Lisa
explained that these projects
help motivate the residents to
leave their rooms and move
around. It's very important that
everyone have "something to do
today" and she is happy these,
women have found something
they enjoy.

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
This week I read an older
book written by Nora.Roberts
which was quite interesting.
Cardina's Royal Family is filled
with adventure and romance as
well as crimes that endanger the
safety of the family. The death
of the father, Prince Armand, is-
the goal of the crime boss and to.
attain this objective he attacks
the family members.
My Hairiest Adventure is part
of the Goosebump Series by R.
L. Stine. Why are some of the
members of the group suddenly
having patches of wiry hair
growing on their hands or face?
If they shave it off it just grows
back. How is the family doctor
involved in this problem?
For the beginning reader I
recommend Comet's Nine Lives,
written by Jan Brett. Read how
Comet loses eight of his lives by
being careless or being,where he
did not need to be.
This week we are honoring
our Thursday morning volun-
teer, Mrs. Etta Stewart. We are
thankful for the day that a friend
called and said she knew some-
one who had the time and the
interest of assisting in our all-
volunteer library. Friendliness'
and dependability are words I
would use to describe this lady
and she is always willing to as-
sist others who need her help.
Etta is not a Florida native but
she has been a resident most of
her life. She is the mother of
two adult children but does not
bore us with trivial incidents re-
garding their lives as many of us
are prone to do.
During one of the hurricanes
last fall, she invited one of the
other lady volunteers whose
power was lost to come to her
home. She reported that Mrs.
Etta was a gracious hostess and
that it was wonderful to get a re-
freshing bath and to be able to
sleep in the comfort of an air
conditioned bedroom. Come by
'on Thursday morning and and
-tmeet- this gracious' lady, Mrs.
Etta.

singing since they were about

harmony singers and musicians.
This is a group you don't
want to miss! They praise God
for the talents He has given
them, and they thank Him for
blessing them with the opportu-
nity to travel and sing together
as a family. Their utmost desire

blessed and encouraged for the
kingdom of God through their
music and testimony. They will

Quilting goes on each week'
and we'll. soon be putting in
Sdl -I two new ones. We have de-
cided to use the ''Flower of the

Sl We have never given away a
quilt that is embroidered.
On Wednesday, Jarrod and
.'." ten boys were out to work on
all the things that needs doing.
SOne cleaned my little garden
44 l I\ and planted different kinds of
S' peppers. In the afternoon after
S-the mowing and trimming was
S. done they learned how to make
sauerkraUt. They chopped
S ,. cabbage and packed it in jars
S then it was finished inside. It
was a great .learning experi-
ence for them and they do so
S J many things out here that I
Can't get to. They painted the
i new water pump house and it
Swas a great day for all of us.
Linda Chapman came by.
S She is here from Connecticut
& and she makes many of the
dolls we have here. We hope
,she will be coming back to
. ri stay soon.
; _-.m- Lunch was great. Betty
t made lemon pie and, we had

The Log Cabin Quilters met
again Thursday, June 2nd at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
How good it was to have
Goldie and Cleo back from
North Carolina. Goldie picked
a red, white and blue "Churn
Dash" for our next quilt.
Marie is back from the east
coast and Martha is still gone
somewhere on her bus trip.
We will be at the Water-
melon Festival to take dona-
tions on the quilt to be given
away. When we think back
through the years when we
were raising money to build
the museum we are reminded
of so many things. The floats
we had in the parade, the tons
of cookies we baked, the
chicken and dumplings we sold,
(even for breakfast) and the
canned goods and crafts we
sold. It was always a fun day
and we thank the Lord we have
come so far. Now we can
watch the parade and see the
crafts, meet people we only see
once a year.
I want to thank Richard and
Sammie Hart for all the vege-
tables they bring me. I'm
making lots of pickles and
what have you.
Lunch was so good with
meat loaf, mixed vegetables
and chicken, fried, in sauces;
we had chicken'in.everything.
Marie made lemon puffs,

Teachers Suggest
Students Play Audio
Books & Read Along
Consider adding one more
thing to your summer reading
list, audio books!
Students who listen to books
as they read them can improve
their vocabulary and compre-
hension skills according to
teachers and researchers. Using
books on tape is a decades-old
tactic, but the proliferation of
audio books on CDs has made
the practice more popular with
students.


Reading and listening is par-
ticularly effective for middle-
school grades and for students
with learning issues such as
dyslexia, experts said. But edu-
cators also think that audio
books could help any student
and that parents should listen to
them with their children in the
car.
"Listening to tapes/CDs with
books in front of students is
very, very good for building vo-
cabulary," said Wendy Kasten,
an education professor at Kent
State University who encour-
ages elementary educators to
experiment using audio books
with students.
It helps that your local li-
brary, the Gilchrist County
Public Library, has more than
900 adult and juvenile recorded
books in stock with new ones
being added quarterly.
So, make some time in your
summer schedule for your child
to listen and read a recorded
book. It could make a big dif-
ference next school year.

GREETINGS
I'm wondering how many re-
cent graduates can relate to this
cute picture. If you can, I wish
you the best in whatever future
plans you have chosen. Con-
gratulations to all of you!

The reward of a thing well
done is to have it done...
Ralph Waldo Emerson

REMINDER
Flag Day is Tuesday, June
14 h...Don't forget to fly Old
Glory once again with pride.

Your friend is the man who
knows all about you and still
likes you...

BIRTHDAYS
Happy Birthday to Earl Gene
Gay (39) of Fort White and Don
McLeary (60) of Sun N'Fun on
June 9th; to Celia Loughner (88)
on June 10th:.. "May all of you
have a nice day celebrating!"

What should not be heard by
little ears should not be said
by big mouths...

ANNIVERSARY
Happy 42nd Anniversary to
Don and Carole Emrick of
Newberry on June 10'... "Have
a lovely day Don and Carole!"

It's all right to hold a conver-
sation, but let go of it now and
then...

FANTASTIC FACTS
The reason we use the word
"tuxedo" when referring to a
man's evening jacket is this:
Because it was first worn at
Tuxedo Park in Orange County,
New York. But, according to
legend, this coat was devised by
King Edward VII of England
while he was still Prince of
Wales. As a young man, Ed-
ward liked to play cards and


Mina Willis, PharmD/PA-C
Family Practice


would often sit all night at the
table where, being very stout,
his full dress coattails got in his
way. So Edward had a coat
made up with the tails clipped
off, and that's how the tuxedo
came into being.

Patience is the best remedy for
every trouble...

RIB TICKLERS
Because they had no reserva-
tions at. a busy restaurant, my
elderly neighbor and his wife
were told there would be a 45-
minute wait for a table. "Young
man, we're both 90 years old,"
the husband said. "We may not
have 45 minutes." They were
seated immediatley.

A kindergarten teacher was
observing her classroom of
children while they were draw-
ing. She would occasionally
walk around to see each child's
work. As she got to one little
girl who was working dili-
gently, she asked what the
drawing was.
The girl replied, "I'm drawing
God."
The teacher paused and said,
"But no one knows what God
looks like."
Without looking up from her
drawing, the girl replied, "They
will in a minute."

A junior manager, a senior
manager and their boss were on
their way to a lunch meeting. In
the cab, they found a lamp. The
boss rubbed it, and a genie ap-
peared. "I'll grant you one wish
each," the genie said.
Grabbing the lamp from his
boss, the eager senior manager
shouted, "I want to be on a fast
boat in the Bahamas with no
worries." And, poof, he was
gone.
The junior manager could not
keep quiet. He shouted, "I want
to be in Miami, with beautiful
girls, food, and cocktails." And,
poof, he was gone.
Finally, it was the boss' turn.
"I want those idiots back in the
office after lunch."

According to a brand-new re-
port, this year airline passengers
have been subject to longer de-
lays and to ruder service than
ever before.
W ,When asked about it, a
spolbkSprsoni for 'the' airlines
said, Sut up and ge' b.Lck ifi
line!"

What do prisoners use to call
each other?
Cell phones.

Smith climbs to the top of Mt.
Sinai to get close enough to talk
to God. Looking up, he asks the
Lord, "God, what does a million
years mean-to you?"
The Lord replies, "A minute."
Smith asks, "And what does a
million dollars mean to you?"
The Lord replies, "A penny."

SVL 10 And Under
Team Wins At Fort
White Invitational
By Anna Wild
On May 27th, 28th and 29th the
Suwannee Valley League's 10
and under team took to the field
in Fort White. They played a
total of four games and won the
tournament. In game one they

1; in game two they played
Hamilton County and won 20 to
5; in game three they played
Hamilton County and lost 6 to
9; and in game four they played
Hamilton County and won 17 to

Everyone 'played their best
and the teams top performers
were: Kyle Wiggins scoring a
total of six runs and Clif Bryant
pitched a total of seven innings,
had ten strike outstanding,
scored four runs and made an
over-the-fence home run.
Hunter Williams pitched for
five innings, had eight strike
outs and scored five runs. Dal-
las Goff scored eight runs.

one strike out. Hunter Parrish
scored seven runs and Justin
Cro'%n and Cla. Taninies both
scored "tii pl' '" rida't 'i'6b guys,
keep up the outstanding per-
formance!

Smith asks, "Can I have a
penny?"
The Lord replies, "In a min-
ute."

Before you know what direc-
tion to take, you've got to
know where you are...

Store eggs with the broad

break after storage this way.

The trouble with many people
in trying times is they quit

QUIET REFLECTIONS
We should love people not only
with words and talk,
but by our actions and true car-
ing. This is the way we know
that we belong to the way of
truth. When our hearts make us
feel guilty, we can still have
peace before God. God is
greater than our hearts, and He
knows everything.

ment, and learn again to exer-
cise his will his personal re-
sponsibility in the realm of

Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
*Vice Commander: Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Last Saturday, June 4th, Post 91 Commander Wayne Gravely and
Post Adjutant Dean Williams attended the Fourth District
Constitutional Conference at American Legion Post 284 in
Belleview, just below Ocala on US 301/441. There were a number of
Legionnaires campaigning for department offices in attendance. With
the State Convention coming up next month, and all the districts
having their own Constitutional Conferences, the department
candidates are on the go, trying to get votes. With so many Legion
Posts across the state, it is nearly impossible to get to every one, so
the candidates look for the District Conferences to meet as many
Legionnaires as possible, in as short time, as they can. Those in
attendance at Post 284 on Saturday were: Department
'Sergeant-at-Arms, Oliver Kennedy, running for another term as
Department Sergeant-at-Arms: Bob Cherry, who is running for
Department Historian: Sonny Bywaters, George Wherli (from Lake
City Post 57'and a Past Northern Area Commander), and Paul Martel
(currently Department Historian) who are running for Department
Vice Commander; Lindsey Morris, (the 17th District Commander) is
running unopposed for Northern Area Commander; and Larry White
from Crystal River Post 155, who is currently the Department
Vice-Commander, is running for Department Commander. Also in
attendance was our National. Executive Committeeman Bob Proctor
and Past Department Commander Clarence Hill. There was time
before the meeting to chat with these folks and see what the plans
were for the next year for Florida's American Legion.
Part of the reason for the District meeting was to elect District
Officers for the coming year. To a certain extent, it is a rubber stamp
'of last year. Phil Hearlson is District Commander again, and Jim
Ramos from Newberry Post 149 and Ray Hall from Dunnellon Post
58 are the District Vice-Commanders again. The District is set for
another year and with seasoned officers too.
The Executive Committee will meet tonight, 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. Other
items will concern the Installation Agenda and the order of business
for Saturday, June 11.
Tomorrow, Friday, June 10th, will be a Work Day at Post 91. We
need all the help we can get. The are a number of jobs that need to be
done to get our Post ready for the big day on Saturday. We need to
have a general clean-up inside and out, with some touch-ups here and
there. Bring some tools to work with. We do have a broom or two
and a mop, but if you like yours better, bring it! Let's pitch in and get
this place spic and span to show off to our guests. We are supposed to
have a number of elected dignitaries as well as some Legion
dignitaries, so let's make our Post shine. The doors will be open so
come on out in the cool of the day to work with us. The coffee will be
perking.
Saturday will be a big day. We are having a "Legion Family
Affair". Our Auxiliary, SAL and Post are getting installed and "sworn
in" to be a "Family". The Bloodmobile will be there, breakfast begins
at 08:00 and all kinds of good things are going to happen. Post 91 is
starting to grow! Come out for breakfast and bring family and
friends, especially veterans. Post 91 may have a program or function
that may suit you, so come out to see.
Keep our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers daily, and
here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the
families of those service members called up for active duty, helping
however and whenever we can.
For God and Country,

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well, here it is the first of
June. School has been out for a
week or more, depending on
where you live. Already, kids
are complaining to frazzled
mothers that they are hot, thirsty
and bored, not:necessarily in
that order. And while teachers


are catching their breath and
sighing with relief, parents, es-
pecially moms, are gearing up
for the long hot "dog days" of
summer.
The wildflowers along the
roadsides, that have given us
miles of smiles, are going to
seed and to sleep until next
spring. I, for one, will miss
them dancing and waving as I
drive by. Although, we do have
an abundance of plain shy tick-
weed that stands straight and
tall, almost begging for atten-
tion.


Of course perennials are now
coming on stage and stealing
the show. Roses fill the air with
their lovely, romantic scent and
the sweet heady aroma of gar-
denias is almost intoxicating, to
say the very least. Stately mag-
nolias are beginning to add the
elegance of creamy white blos-
soms to their attire, 'as if to say,
"I do declare, this is the way
any decent, proper southern
lady would dress."
Yes, it's June alright. Thank
the Lord for all the great rain
we've had. Just about everyone
who is lucky enough to have
wild blackberries is enjoying a
bumper crop of big fat juicy
ones,..and oh, so sweet.
Of course, June also means
grass mowin', weedin', putting'
up jars of eats out of the garden
and...yep, hurricane season.. I
know everyone, even non-
believers, are praying Florida,
will not have another season
like last year's. I still can't find
stuff out of the yard that we
took in last year. On the bright
side, I wonder if the hurricanes
winds, and water had anything
to do with the love bug popula-
tion. Every year my house, car,
yard, hair and windshield aie
totally engulfed in them. This
year there were just a
few...what happened? What-

ever it was...praise the Lord.
The air is often still and
muggy, even early in the
morning. I'm sure we're all
trying not to use the air condi-
tioner anymore than necessary
but honest to Pete, when you're
wringing wet with good old
fashioned sweat...it feels good.
That and a big 'ole glass of ice
tea can be a real life saver for
me.
And that's the way it was on
Wednesday, May 25th when 18
Joyful Hearts met for our
"Make It and Take It" day.
Evelyn Wood showed us how to
make darling May baskets out
of that twisted craft paper, those
little greenberry baskets and
ribbon, lace and silk flowers for
trimmings. Not everyone made
one. Some folks quilted or
worked on projects already
started. But as usual we all had
a good time and passed the
morning calm..."cool"... and
collected.
We met again on Wednesday,
June 1" and there were 20 Joy-
ful Hearts gathered together. A
big and welcomed surprise was
that Geneva Carver and Surena
May drove down from Dowling
Park to spend the morning with'
us. It just so happened that it
was Geneva's 80th birthday. I
told her, "Geneva that old song
is true...If I knew you were
coming I'd a baked a cake."
We were also glad to have
Judy Pflueger with us. Her du-
ties being such that she can't
always be there but it's a joy
when she can. She brought in
her finished hat square. It was.
just great. She's promised to do
another. Rita Simcoe was put-
ting some last minute touches
on her cute purse square.
Lu' Rowland, Jackie Moore,
Cathy Strom, Heidi Kamp and
Ruth Wilkerson all were busy as
bees with their Swedish weav-
ing. Mary Lou Ryder would
have been but she could only
drop by for a few minutes, to
say hello, as she was on her way
to Tampa.
Alice Binns is making great
strides toward finishing the rug
she's hooking and Elaine
showed us the newest quilt
square she's working on. It's in
solid and print fabric in shades
of blue. The pattern is called
"Snowball." It will be lovely.
The "Amen Corner" was
c.-.ninplcte with Pa,~lene Martin
crocheting baby 'Hats fbr the'
hospital, Ann Taylor doing em-
broidery work on a pillow case
and Alberta Swanner making
plastic canvas cross bookmarks.
I don't know how much work
was going on, but between
them, Geneva and Surena, there
was a lot of laughing and that's
important too.
Evelyn Wood was knitting
tiny baby mittens and Diana
Lynn was busy with her 16-
year-old cross-stitch. I was em-
broidering on a pillowcase and
Barbara Strom said she was su-
pervising. She must be good at
it as we were all keeping our
noses' to the grindstone. Bar-
bara brought in a simply beauti-
ful Daylily to share. It was a
golden yellow with a sort of
wine colored throat. The petals
were ruffled and outlined in the
same wine color. It looked as if
it were hand-painted. God cer-
tainly is a great artist, isn't He?
Ann Mangone brought in not
one, but two new quilts she has
finished. One was worked in'
pale orange and beige. Each
square had different kinds of
appliqued seashells, embel-
lished with sequins and pearls.
She calls it "Sun and Sand."
The other one was squares 'of
pink and purple tulips with a
bright, almost day-glow, yellow
as a border and framing each
square. It was bold and beauti-
ful. She'll have to bring them
back, because Bonnie wasn't
there and we didn't get any
pictures of them.
As usual, the hands on the
clock moved swiftly and before
long we were closing up shop
and settling down for lunch and
chit chat.
We left, saying our good-byes
and see ya later. It is such a
comfort and joy to know that
through the sunshine and the
storms, through the joys and the
sorrows, that there is this group
of joyful hearts that care and are
concerned. They. rejoice in one


another's gladness and give
comfort in one another's sad-
ness. They are a blessing to one
another, in ways I sometimes
think that even we don't under-
stand. God has brought us to-
gether for a purpose. Truly,
"The Lord watches over all who
love Him." Psalm 145:20.
Our next meeting will be
Wednesday, June 15h. We have
four June birthdays to celebrate
so come and join in the fun.
"Til next time.

It has been a whole year since you left us, I have

difficult. Everyone says it was God's will and I
believe that. I know I probably shouldn't question
why, but I can't help wondering. Why? I miss you
every day and I know life will never be the same. I
still take one day at a time, and sometimes catch
myself looking for you to walk in the door I can't
help but think of what could have been and should
have been and would have been. But I am so very
thankful for the years we shared and the joy you
brought to so many lives. I know that you made the
world a much better place for all that knew vou. I
know how much we loved you and always will. I

Suwannee River
Shrine Has
Tremendous Day In
Kids Fishing
Tournament
(Continued from Page One)
scenes "funny" is that of all the
people I spoke to during the
day, I had the opportunity to
speak with Kyle's grandfather
as we both examined this motor
on display. He told me of sev-
eral fishing opportunities where
a good motor such as this would
be of benefit and how "cool" it
would be if his grandson won
this little fishing tool. My
mouth fell open. I was so tick-
led. This motor was awarded to
one of our many fishing fami-
lies in the community.. Being
there and having that earlier
conversation, I was certain the
trolling motor would be in the
water soon.
This day was filled with
laughter lining the banks. In
conversation you could hear the
children making childlike bets
of who would bring in the fish.
There was much conversation
about young Bradley Rhodes, a
participant for many, many
years, as he proudly brought in
a total boat weight of
(We'll never tell, but we
were there.) Though he did not
win a big trophy to drag home,
he did receive a participant's
trophy, a Zebco rod-n-reel, a

and Bobby Heath, shown with the 5-8-year olds.


fishing cap, snacks and lunch,
just like all the other partici-.
pants. Bradley participated in
his last Shriners tournament
Saturday along with Eric Rain
because they are now 16 years
of age. They'll be back though
because the real fun is watching
those beautiful smiles on the
faces of all the little people
when they bring in the fish and
when they take home their tro-
phy.
Of course the smiles on the
parent's faces are almost as
priceless. There was fun eve-


rywhere you looked! We know!
Because we were there!
Where were you? That's
okay, we'll see you next year,
no one would miss this, two
years in a row!
Tournament participants
came from Bell, Cross City,
Gainesville, High Springs,
Newberry, Steinhatchee and
Trenton to fish on the river Sat-
urday. There were some there
simply to support this great or-
ganization. Who are the Shrin-
ers? Why are they here? Why
are they always hanging


around? Is it because they en-
joy all the fun stuff such as
fishing tournaments, chili cook-
offs, rodeos, parades, festivals,
carnivals, football, cook outs,
yard sales and bake sales? Of
course it is! And why do they
do all these things? That's easy
enough to answer.....children!
These men (with their partners
close by) can be found all over
the place, and they are all out
there for one reason...the kids.

pletely by fund-raisers designed
in small towns with loving peo-
ple like those found in fishing
boats. Now that's something to
get choked up about. Picture
that child in wrapped bandages
with burns from his head to his
toes, maybe the little girl walk-
ing with a limp, or maybe even
the one that will never walk.
Now think ahead and see the

child running and playing with
no bandages, or the girl walking
straight getting around on her
own or the young one in the
wheelchair looking a little more
comfortable. Now think of the
families enjoying their children
with no worry of hospital bills
because the Shriners took care
of that for them. Life is kind.
So, now when you see that
Shriner, you can think of those
children and just say, "Thank
you, I know who you are and I
know what you do." Then take
a moment to "thank" yourself
for dropping that change in the
bucket, purchasing that home-
made cake, placing an ad in the
tournament book or putting your
child in a boat. However you
help the Shriners, it is greatly
appreciated by all those guys in
those funny little hats (the FEZ)
and by the many families of the
Shrine children.
If you know a child that may
benefit with this assistance,
please contact Sam Ferguson at
352-463-1409, Crippled and
Burned Children Representative
for this area.

Trenton City
Manager Resigns,
Accepts Position
With Morgan
County, Georgia
(Continued from Page One)

as Trenton City Manager. My
last day of work will be Tues-
day, July 5, 2005; as I have ac-
cepted a similar position with
Morgan County (Madison),
Georgia.
Since day one, November 1,
1999, your unwavering support
for me is something I will never
forget. Furthermore, I leave
Trenton in awe of you as an
elected body; as, your collective
actions, ideas and fortitude
continually demonstrate to me
the true meaning of public
service.
In closing, please know the
decision to depart was not an
easy one to make; as, Trenton,
its employees, residents and
business owners have grown in-
creasingly dear to my heart. In
fact, I will always view this
community as my second home.
Thank you again for your
support and best of luck with all
your future endeavors. Sin-
cerely, Michael Lamar
Lamar told the board that he
will work with staff to assist
them in any way to make this
transition as easy as possible.
City Attorney David M.
Lang recommended that the
commission ask the city man-
ager to prepare a list of all of the
existing projects and ongoing
programs, that the City of Tren-
ton is involved in. This will
help the interim city manager to
take care of the many tasks that
have to be done on a daily basis,
Lang added.
The city commission di-
rected the city manager to pre-
pare an advertisement and place
it in professional administrative
publications in search of appli-
cants to fill the position.
The city commission will
hold a meeting on Monday,
June 27th at 6:00 p.m. to make a
decision on an interim city man-
ager.

Gilchrist Commission
And School Board
Agree To Swap
15-Acres Of Land To
Allow For LCCC
Expansion
The Gilchrist County
Commission and School District
Administrators met on Monday
to finalize the details of a
property exchange involving 15
acres. Gilchrist County School
Superintendent Buddy Vickers
addressed the four-member
County Commission to finalize
the exchange of 15 acres of
property.
The School Superintendent
explained that the School
District needs 15-acres of land
where the Gilchrist County
School District Central Campus
is currently located. Gilchrist
County currently owns this
property where the Gilchrist
Sheriff's Firing Range is located
on the eastern portion of this
parcel. Vickers explained that
Lake City Community College
has agreed to expand their
campus into Gilchrist County on
this parcel halfway between
Trenton and Bell if the property


exchange goes as planned. "We
plan to move the portable
classrooms off the campus
during the summer months,"
Vickers explained.
The School District has


agreed to trade the county 15-
acres of property that was
formally a hay field that borders
CR-307A on the north and
Trenton High School and
Elementary School Campus on
the east and south sides of the
property.
Vickers explained to the
Commission that the School
District would be willing to
exchange the western most 15-
acres that borders property
owned by Progress Energy and
Piedmont Farms.
The Superintendent also
asked the Commission to build
a road along the western
boundary of the property to
enable the School District to
move the Old High School Gym
to the new elementary school
campus.
Commissioner Sharon
Langford made a motion to
approve the exchange of the
properties between the two local
governmental organizations.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
gave a second to the motion.
"The property we are giving
up was for the Road
Department. We are not
receiving anything that we can
use to move the road
Department to in exchange,"
explained Commission
Chairman Mitchell Gentry.
The chairman asked the
School District representatives
if the School Board could
purchase property suitable to
relocate the Gilchrist County
Road Department to? "We don't
have any money to purchase
land to exchange for the
Gilchrist County Road
Department," Superintendent
Vickers explained.
The County Commission
agreed to have the attorneys
representing the two governing
bodies get together and work
out the details of the property
exchange.
The Commission chairman
called for a vote and the
Commission approved the
motion by a 4-0 vote.
