Originally from Jacksonville,
Florida, Rev. Rodriguez, and his
wife, Donna, as well as their
three sons, Ryan, Jonathan and
Eric, came to the Gilchrist
County area in November of
2001. Pastor Ralph formerly
pastored at Mt. Pleasant Baptist
Church in High Springs and in
2001 transferred to minister
here in this area.
' FORGIVENESS, the charac-
ter quality being defined this
month, is a trait which Brother
Ralph believes is something that
he personally needs, and "it's
the blood of Jesus which gives
it," for he related that it is only
through "God's love which al-
lows us to forgive offenses."
The act of FORGIVENESS is
(actually) treating people as if
nothing has happened."
Brother Ralph likes things


Pastor Ralph Rodriguez

explained in simple ways,
"ways that work," he says. He
likes to explain
FORGIVENESS to others by
saying that this trait of Jesus,
FORGIVENESS "is best under-
stood at the foot of the cross,


because the ground is level
there. FORGIVENESS makes
one free to love and receive
love, while it also gives peace."
He says that "personal peace is
one-sided and that peace comes
only through the willful act of
FORGIVENESS." He shared
that he has "to forgive because"
he does not "want to miss out
on God's blessings."
Pastor Ralph is not only a
first generation Cuban-
American, he is also a U.S. Air
Force veteran. After his stint in
the service, he was called into
the ministry and has been serv-
ing others as a man of the.cloth
ever since. This precious man of
God has a kind smile and a
quiet acceptance of everyone he
meets, as well as a burden to
teach the true word of God. The

Gilchrist Emergency Medical Service To

Purchase Emergency Generators With

Rural EMS Grant


The Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Medical Director, Linda
Walker, recently received noti-
fication that the emergency
service has been selected to re-
ceive a state medical services
rural matching grant for
$32,778. This grant requires
Gilchrist County to produce a
ten percent match in funds,
which will bring the entire grant
to $36,420.
Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford made a motion to approve


the purchase of the three gen-
erators from Ready Power for
$24,655. Commissioner
Tommy Langford gave a second
to the motion.
The EMS director submitted
the application for the grant re-
questing the funds to purchase
emergency generators for two
EMS stations and a generator
for the special needs shelter at
Bell Health Academy. Gilchrist
County Administrator Ron
McQueen explained to the


board that during the storms of
2004 when the special needs
shelter had residents that re-
quired oxygen, the county had
to use small mobile generators
to provide the residents with
oxygen. This new generator
would alleviate the problem of
only being able to provide six
oxygen generators working at
one time.
The director advertised for
bids. for three generators.
Mr. Ron McQueen explained


to the board that Linda Walker
had received quotes from differ-
ent generator retailers.
McQueen provided the board
with copies of each of the bid
quotes. He explained that
Ready Power of Jasper, Georgia
had bid three generators for a
total of $24,655. Director
Walker had checked on that
specific bid and found that the
bid was correct. McQueen ex-

FWC Officers Present Flags To

Georgia School


Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) law enforcement officers
recently presented a shadowbox
in memory of two students who
died during a canoeing and
camping trip off the coast of
Dixie County.
During a search and rescue
operation in late February, FWC
officers assisted in rescuing
eight survivors and recovered
the bodies of the two teens from
Georgia.
The two young men, Sean
Christopher Wilkinson and
Clarence "Clay" Rogers


McKemie, were part of a group
on spring break from the Dar-
lington School in Rome, Geor-
gia, camping off the town of
Suwannee. While paddling to
an island to camp, the group en-
countered difficulties and rough
seas which pulled them out into
the gulf from sheltered waters.
The group leader was able to
call for help and the US Coast
Guard and the FWC began
searching for the group, ac-
cording to Captain John Burton,
area supervisor at the Crystal
River Field Office.
"We successfully rescued


eight of the ten people who
were part of the group from the
Darlington School, but our offi-
cers were deeply affected by the
loss of the two boys," according
to Burton.
"Officer Laird Canfield came
up with the idea to give the re-
tired flags back in memory of
the students. They wanted to
show the school's students,
families and staff exactly how
we felt," Burton said.
From the initial idea, the offi-
cers and staff of the FWC
Crystal River office designed a

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
It is not often that you hear
of a fish attacking a swimmer or
a diver in the water. Just
recently I was reading the
Times-Union and it presented in
detail how a man diving the
lower Florida Keys was
attacked by a Jewfish or Goliath
grouper. The attack left the man
hospitalized.
The newspaper article
reported the diver had been
scuba diving in a heavy rock
and reef area and was
attempting to spear mangrove
snapper when the attack
occurred. The diver indicated
that the attack happened so fast.
He explained that one moment
he saw the fish turn broadside
:and then all he could see was a
bunch of bubbles when the fish
tried to swallow the diver. The
diver explained, "I didn't realize
my head was in his mouth until
I was on my way to the
hospital." The diver received
bruises and a lacerated lip
which required four stitches.
The Goliath grouper is the
largest member of.the..grouper-_
ifamily. This species .can reach
weights of more than 600
pounds. This breed was placed
on the protected species list in
1990 after the fish had been
reported to have dwindled to
very few.
Goliath grouper are not


generally considered to be an
aggressive species, but there
have been reported cases where
the largest species of the
grouper family has swallowed
an entire human being.
This raises the question. Is
this species of grouper so
plentiful that it should be taken
off the endangered species list
and put on the sports fishing
classificatiQn to allow fishermen
to take one fish a day perboat?
I was watching a fishing
program recently where Captain
Ralph Delph was hosting a
charter where the fishermen
were catching grouper, snapper
and other reef species. This
well-known Keys authority
identified that the Goliath
grouper should once again
become a species that should be
allowed to be taken in a limited,
quantity or identified as a sports
fishing species.
The restrictions that ate now
being considered to be placed
on the grouper species could
severely limit the number of
boats that would go out and
attempt to catch their legal limit
of grouper.




Before I got married I had six
theories about bringing up chil-
dren; now I have six children,
and no theories.

and Florida flag flown on two of
the vessels used by the FWC
during the search.
"The flags were tattered from
the miserable conditions en-
dured during the search and res-
cue," Burton explained. "The
officers involved in the search
signed the Florida flag and paid
for the box with their own do-
nations."
On behalf of the families,
friends and the school, the
Headmaster of Darlington
School, C. David Rhodes III,
wrote a "thank you" letter to the
officers involved in the search.
Burton contacted Rhodes and
asked if the. box could be pre-
sented to the school in memory
of the students. Rhodes invited
FWC to the school's honors day
program held May 13th. "We
thought this was an appropriate
time to present this shadowbox
to the school," Burton ex-
plained. Burton, along with Lt.
Roy Williams, went to Rome
for the presentation.
The honors day program was
a celebration of achievement for
the students of Darlington
School and numerous awards
were given. A heartfelt stand-
ing ovation, was given to Burton
and Williams by the Darlington
staff, students and the families
of Shawn and Clay.
During their presentation, a
letter signed.by Colonel Julie
Jones, director of the Division
of Law Enforcement, was read.
The letter asked that the school
display the shadowbox in mem-
ory of Shawn and Clay. The

Forbidding Us To Speak To The Gentiles
(Kent Heaton)


The Jewish leaders of Paul's day were enraged
against him for his teaching the pagan Gentiles a
message of salvation apart from the Law of Mo-
ses. The battle between the former leader of the
Jewish persecution and his brethren was rooted in
Paul's insistence that all men could be saved with-
out being circumcised (Galatians 6:12-17). When
the apostle writes to the church at Thessalonica,
he accuses the Jews of forbidding him to teach
salvation to the Gentiles: "For ye, brethren, be-
came followers of the churches of God which in
Judea are in Christ Jesus: for ye also have suffered
like things of your own countrymen, even as they
have of the Jews: Who both killed the Lord Jesus,
and their own prophets, and have persecuted us;
and they please not God, and are contrary to all
men: Forbidding us to speak to the Gentiles that
they'might be saved, to fill up their sins always:
for the wrath is come upon them to the uttermost"
(1 Thessalonians 2:14-16).
The Jews had killed Jesus (Acts 2:23), killed
their own prophets (Matthew 23:37) and persecut-
ed the church (Acts 14:1-6; 17:1-9). Their actions
were against the will of God. They were moved
by their own prejudice, hatred and envy of the dis-
ciples of Christ. In their zeal to serve God, they
had gone beyond the laws of God and became a
law to themselves. Their prejudice had grown so
much they persecuted Paul (and others) for trying
to offer salvation to Gentiles apart from them-
selves.
Paul had been sent to preach to the Gentiles -
"He is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name
before the Gentiles" (Acts 9:15) and he would not
let the Jews hinder his preaching to all men. The
depth of the Jewish hatred of Gentiles was found
in their denial of considering the Gentiles worthy
of salvation. "Forbidding us to speak to the Gen-


tiles that they might be saved" (1 Thessalonians
2:16). The Gentiles needed salvation as much as
the Jews did. How could they forbid the saving
grace of God to other people? Where could the
people of God determine to exclude anyone from
salvation?
Jesus died for all men without exception. "And
I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men
unto me" (John 12:32). There is no one that God
does not want to enjoy the blessing of salvation.
"Who will have all men to be saved, and to come
unto the knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:3-4).
"For the grace of God that brings salvation has ap-
peared to all men" (Titus 2:11). Jesus did not die
for an elect few or an elect race. The love of God
was given to all men for all men to come to the
throne of grace and mercy to receive the redemp-
tion of their souls. John writes that "God so loved
the world [all men], that he gave his only begotten
Son, that whosoever [all men] believeth in him
should not perish [all men], but have everlasting
life [all men]" (John 3:16).
The Jews forbade Paul to teach the Gentiles sal-
vation. The wrath of God would be poured upon
them for their rejection of the will of God. Teach-
ing salvation today cannot be measured by the col-
or of skin, the economic status or level of educa-
tion. The gospel of Jesus Christ is for all those who
stand in peril before the great I AM. "Even the
righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus
Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for
there is no difference: For all have sinned, and
come short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:22-23).
You need the cleansing power of the gospel of Je-
sus Christ as much as the man or woman who
stands next to you, lives next to you or passes by
your way in your walk of life. All men need the
gospel! All men need the gospel today!

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
SWednesday, June.15th started
out much like most mornings of
late...hot and humid. The sky
was as blue as a sailor's eyes
and the sun was already soaking
up the glistening rain drops still
remaining from the showers the
night before. Speaking of
which, praise the Lord, for all of
the recent rain we've enjoyed
even if at times it does put a
damper on things.
Eighteen Joyful Hearts spilled
out of their assortment of vehi-
cles and prepared to settle down
to the business at hand. Just
saying our hellos, giving out
hugs and getting our coffee or
what ever is like a scene from
an old Marx brothers movie.
"Show and Tell" was at the
top of the list with Pat Luka,
Elaine Nemeth, Rita Simcoe,
and Marvine Deer all having


projects to share. Pat showed
off her darling and detailed
counted cross-stitch she made
for her great-grandson. She
said she still has two more to go
so that all of her great-grands
have one. However, that
morning she worked on a beau-
tiful wall hanging with lovely
butterflies.
Rita brought in chicken
scratch pillows that her mother
had made. It is such a blessing
to be able to have these treas-
ures made by our loved ones
and to be able to keep their
memories alive through sharing
them with others..
Elaine had several things to
share. One was a beautiful
sampler quilt., It was done in
lavender and purple prints and
solid pieces with touches of
white and green. It was all done
on a machine which, was what
she said some might call cheat-
ing, certainly was much faster.
She did pass on a helpful tip.
Elaine said, she'd worked on
the quilt piecing it all together
into one whole quilt. This made


it difficult to work with on the
machine because it was sooo
big. Next time she says, she
will do it in quarters then put
the four pieces together, one at a
time, which should be much
easier.
She also brought in a new
"cathedral window" square
she's doing. It is made out of
denim and bandanas. It's going
to be a picnic quilt to carry in
the car and used for fun. The
center is formed from bandana
pieces and the denim circles
were cut using a coffee can lid
for a pattern. The circle's edges
fold over onto themselves and
are then' stitched down to form
half a circle which now turns
the whole thing into a
square...sew simple. Tip two
from Elaine; instead of pinning'
edges that need folding over for
this or other projects, from
quilting to hemming and etc.,
use those cute hair clips that
bend and clip. Now, I ask you,
how quick and easy it that?
Thanks a bunch Elaine.

Marvine couldn't bring her
"show and tell" in so she
brought us a picture instead.
Seems like Marvine keeps a to-
do-list (don't we all) and she
writes projects she intends (no-
tice I said, intends) to do. This
project had been on her list 12
years (now that's what I call A+
procrastination). She refur-
bished two lovely lawn chairs.
It involved the cutting of old
bolts, removing old wooden
slates and replacing everything.
A lot of sawing, sanding,
painting, and determination
went into this project but hey,
after 12 years...it's off her list.
Well, moving right along, the
Swedish weavers Bonnie Ed-
wards, Lu Rowland, Jackie
Moore and Heidi Kamp were
right on task. Heidi also
brought in a plastic canvas tiny
cross that tucked into a tiny
plastic canvas holder with a
lovely poem slipped in. it
would be such a nice little re-
membrance to put in a card to
send to a friend. She was kind
enough to give it to me and I'm,
putting that on my to-do-list to
make for future occasions.
Thank you, Heidi.
And speaking of plastic can-
vas. Alberta Swanner was busy
making her bookmark crosses
which are lovely and useful as
well. Paulene Martin was cro-
cheting tiny yellow baby hats
for newborns and Barbara

Myrick was knitting more
squares for her afghan.
Diana Lynn, Maxine Hale
and I were doing cross-
stitching. Diana's coming right
along with her 16 year old piece
that was meant for her son
Zachary and Maxine is working
on a beautiful tablecloth with
gorgeous flowers and I'm com-
pleting my second one of a pair
of pillowcases.
Alice Binns is really going to
town on her rug she's hooking.
It is going to be way too cute to
use as a rug...but we'll see.
Barbara Strom was practicing
on making a doll that looked
something like a ginger bread
boy to me. We're going to try
making some on our next
"Make It and Take It" day.
Cindy Williams came and we
hope she will become one of us.
She brought some curtains that
needed to be hemmed but the
machine we have was having
bobbin troubles.' Both she and
Matty Turnei and a few others
worked feverishly trying to get
it sewing but to no avail. Better
luck next time Cindy.
Ann Mangone, who is an em-
broidery extraordinaire, is
working on a circle that is just
exquisite. The pattern is a rep-
lica of an actual painting de-
picting various types of wildlife,
which Ann does so well. It
should be beautiful when fin-
ished.

Cathy Strom brought in PVC
pipe and the hardware to install
two rods for us to hang and dis-
play quilts and such. It was a
sight to see as Elaine, Ann and
Cathy handled those tools and
climbed that ladder. I mean,
this group's got it goin' on.
Elaine's newest sampler quilt
and Cathy's Swedish weaving
are both on display. If you
come to the fire department's
pancake breakfast and spaghetti
dinner this Saturday, you will
see them.
We had four birthdays this
month...Geneva Carver,
Maxine Hail, Heidi Kamp and
Pat Luka. We had German
chocolate cake and cherry nut
ice cream sundaes. Guess
what? I think we forgot to sing
"Happy Birthday" to them, we
were busy making sundaes.
Bonnie said we looked like pigs
at a trough and we did.
Our next "Make It and Take
It" day is Wednesday, June 29".
Our next regular meeting will
be Wednesday, July 6th. We
always meet at the North Gil-
christ Fire ,Department on CR
138 unless we go on one of our
field trips. Drop by and sit a
spell. We'd love to have you
join us. Bring a lunch and a
smile, we'll provide a joyful
heart. -

POST 91 NEWS.
Post Commander: Wayne Gravely 352-472-2252
Vice Commander. Cecil Robinson 386-935-3711
Chaplain: Marilyn Williams 352-463-7031
Post 91 Commander, Shelby McKinney, called for a joint meeting
of the Legion, Auxiliary and SAL on Friday, June 17th, for the
purpose of planning for the next quarter. The Auxiliary has planned
for several fund-raisers and fun evenings during the next quarter
(July, August and September). The Legion has several items that will
be discussed further at the Executive Committee meetings in the
coming months, and this meeting was held to be sure that we did not
overlap in any areas. Several items of business were discussed and
numerous ideas for fund-raising were talked about and scheduled.
The Auxiliary is 'Stepping Up' to the challenges for their Unit and
the Legion. The Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 had met the previous night
and discussed their plans for the coming months. On July 16th, the
Auxiliary is planning a "Yard Sale" and will be held at the corer of
SR-26 and US-129, at the traffic light in Trenton on the N.E. comer.
The contact person for this will be Anne McKinney at 352-493-1459.
If you have items you wish to donate to this worthy organization and
,their cause, plan to drop the items by Post 91 on Friday, July 15th.
Again, contact Anne for more information. On Friday, August 26, at
6:30 PM, a "Dogpatch Party" is planned. Fun and games and
costumes are in store as Dogpatch and Lil Abner and friends come to
town. There will be more information' on this party later. On
Saturday, September 17, at 6:30, the Auxiliary will host a '"Finger
Food Fun Night" with snacks and fun games for the family. There
will be more information on these programs later, too.
Post 91 made some plans for the coming months and established
some committees too. On the Fourth of July, Post 91 is having a
Family Fourth Picnic, with hot dogs and hamburgers. The Post will
supply the meat and buns, and the Family will bring the side dishes
and desserts. Let's make this Fourth of July the first of many Family
Fourths of July at Post 91! Bring your family and invite some friends,
veterans and our Legion widows to join you for a meal and fun at
Post 91..
The July Post 91 meeting will be on the third Saturday, July 16th,
due to several officers being involved with the Department of Florida
State Convention. This change will only apply. to July. The breakfast
will begin as usual at 08:00 AM. The Auxiliary Unit may need some
assistance in setting up the Yard Sale in Trenton, so the men at Post
91 will stand ready to assist anyway they are needed. Our regular
meeting will begin at 10:00 AM. Make the July change on your
calendars.
We also went through a list ofchairmanships for the coming year.
Several legionnaires took two and three positions. This is what we
call 'Stepping Up.' The Committee Chair persons are: Wayne Gravely
- Americanism, Boy's State, and Blood Donor, DeLisa Chubb Boy
Scouts, Dean Williams'- Oratorical; Major Stroupe School Medals,
Employment and Disaster Preparedness Marilyn Williams -
Historian; Carl Corwell Religious Emphasis; Jon Meinholz -
JROTC; and Marcia Parker Children & Youth.
It is now the membership's opportunity to 'Step Up' and help the
Auxiliary, Legion and more specifically, these Committee Chairs.
We realize some of the Legionnaires have given years of their time to
the principles of the American Legion, and some of you haven't been
asked to do anything, but you do pay your dues. We appreciate both.
This year's Legion, Auxiliary and SAL Officers are ready to move
forward with all the programs of each, but we again need your help:
You that have been there before, please give of yourself that we may
prosper and show the community the American Legion Family is
ready and willing to rise to the ,occasion and contribute to the
community. New members, or inactive members, the time is NOW.
Please 'Step, Up' and volunteer some of your time and expertise to the
overburdened officers and give us a hand. The overall success of all
our programs rests in your hands. The few can only accomplish a
little, but the masses can "Git 'er Done." We can point you in the right
direction to get you involved with a program you can enjoy. You will
relish in the satisfaction of your accomplishments at the end of the
year, working for our community, our youth, our veterans, or 'll
three. Come on board and try it out, you may really like it!
Remember our Armed Forces all over this world each day in your
thoughts and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, widows and those families of service members called up for
active duty, helping out whenever and however we can.
For God and Country,

that is certainly the truth. Each
of us, no matter what, has so
very much for which to be
singing His praises. Every day
His miracles are wrought. Why,
just the other day as Bonnie was
heading out of Emerald Farms,
she saw a calf being born...a
miracle. The crepe myrtles in
full bloom with mounds of blos-
soms and busy bumble bees...a
miracle. A dragonfly poised
like a ballerina on a spider
lily...a miracle. Rolling thun-
der off in a distance heralding
the coming refreshing rain...a
miracle. Elaine, opening her
back door and coming face to
face with a doe and her baby...a
miracle. Yes...To Him belongs
eternal praise."

Gilchrist County
Library Takes Part
In Florida Youth
Summer Program
By Anna Wild
Are your kids bored yet this
summer?, It doesn't take long.,
Luckily our Gilchrist County
Public Library in Trenton has
some fun things planned to take
your children out of the ho-hum
and give them fun activities.
Throughout the month of June,
each Thursday, our Gilchrist
County Public Library will host
a one-hour program designed to
excite your child's mind and get
.them reading, singing, doing
crafts, and enjoying themselves.
Cassie Selleck is the outreach
coordinator and children and
youth services coordinator. She.
is running the programs for both


the elementary school children.
and the teen programs. Our li-
brary has programs they offer
year round and many of the
children already know Ms. Cas-
sie from school. She routinely
visits the schools and shows the
children all the fun books li-
braries offer them free.
Thursday starting at 10:00 a.m.
the elementary age program be-.
gins, preschool age children are
also welcome. The children are
introduced to a different theme
each week and shown various
books that may interest their age
group. They then will sing
some songs, with the help of
Ms. Cassie and her guitar eve-
ryone gets involved. Ms. Cassie
reads a couple of books to the
children and the\ eten have a'
craft to do. After the prograr

check out some books to read to
their children at home. Reading
is a great distraction from the
TV.
The teens have not been left
out: at 1:00 p.m. every Thurs-
day, the library has another pro-
gram designed for the sixth -
twelfth grade crowd. Each
week they will also have a dif-
ferent theme, last week they
played an improvisation game
like "Whose Line is it Any-
way?" On June 16th they will
have, a Book Club and discuss a
book they will read together.
For June 23d board games will
be brought out and they will
have fun playing various games.
For the last day of this program,
June 30th the theme will be "It's
anyone's guess", they will par-
ticipate in an interactive who-
dunit mystery program.
Our Gilchrist County Public
Library hopes you will bring
your child to one of these pro-
grams during the month of June.
Remember our libraries are free
,and the kids really like having
their very own library card.
Also if you or someone you
know lives in 'Mayo or Cross
City their libraries are also tak-
ing part in the same program.
Mayo's P'Lrblic Library hosts
programs every Tuesday and,
Cross City"s Public Library
hosts programs every Wednes-
day. I look. forward to seeing
our Gilchrist Count\ kids each
Thursday at our Public Library'
in Trenton. They know how to
make summer fun!


T Character Council's
Character Trait Of
The Month:-
re." FORGIVENESS
n ; By Geneva Cornwell
Individuals grow in character
by focusing on one quality at a
time and understanding its na-
ture, importance, and benefits..
AM That's why the Character Coun-
cil of Gilchrist County sponsors
this article each month, for it's a
way of helping readers to relate
each quality to everyday situa-
ES! tions and e discovering how to
apply and reap its rewards.
The month of June brings us
the character quality of
FORGIVENESS, which is
"clearing the record of those
who h \e vwrqnged jne, pndno$
.holdi-pg- a,-Tg.r-u4d le.
SFORWiYlENESS rtefasi
from fault or offense; pardon;
absolution from payment and a
renunciation of anger or resent-
ment against an- adversary.".
FORGIVENESS comes from
LS the Old English word forgifan,
meaning, "to pardon."' As the.
.word forgive implies, to forgive
requires that a person "give for"
Sthe sake of others.
It is out "of a' need for
FORGIVENESS that a person is
rer s able to forgive others. Those
who suppose they do n'ot need
FORGIVENESS tend to be
rigid and critical of others.
SFORGIVENESS is not ignoring
wrong,. setting aside standards
or truth and virtue; or excusing
from. responsibility for. wrong
actions. Even when forgiven, a
wrong must be made right, and
responsibilities must be ful-
filled.
In every situation' where
,FORGIVENESS is needed, one
side must forgive, and the other
must have a change of attitude.
The wrong attitude says, "I am

seniors point out what they were
doing wrong. SIFE students
also covered credit, business
ethics, entrepreneurship, iden-
tity theft, and proper business
attire.
To develop even further into
proper business attire,one of the
Saturday workshops was de-
voted to taking the seniors to the
Lake City Mall. The grant's
funds were used to purchase
each senior a professional busi-
ness outfit that would be proper

sorry you were hurt by what
happened." It implies that it was
their fault that they were of-
fended, and the offender makes
no commitment to personal
change.
The right attitude admits
wrongdoing and says, "I am
sorry that I was irresponsible
and that I hurt you. I have
learned an important lesson and
am committing myself to be
more responsible from now on."
A person with this attitude ac-
cepts responsibility for wrong
actions and makes a commit-
ment to personal change to pre-
vent future recurrence of the
same failure.
True FORGIVENESS begins
by releasing any personal atti-
tudes of bitterness and looking
for ways to invest time, energy
and thoughtfulness in the of-
fender's life. It does not ignore
wrongdoing but rather acknowl-
edges, wrong and purposes to
overcome withh good;.
FORGIVENESS protects one's'
personal emotional'state aind en-
courages offenders to cease
their offensive behavior.
The alternative to forgiving
an offender is becoming angry.
An angry individual becomes
increasingly obsessed with
"getting even." Anger, if not
dealt with properly, grows into
bitterness. The unhealthy drive
becomes a controlling influence'
on one's life and has been sci-
entifically proven to cause manN
serious health problems.
Even if a person wants to for-
give, it can be very difficult.
The pain of an offense is often
so deep and cruel that it seems
impossible to forgive. In such,
cases, the decision to forgive
must overrule feelings. By in-
\esting time. thought, or mate-
rial provision in the life of an
offender, feelings can be turned
toward genuine
FORGIVENESS.
In life, unfortunately, being
hurt or offended by someone is
virtually inevitable. Thus, re-
solving offenses is the. key, to
maintaining the relationship..
The following five "I Wills"
give practical ways for anyone
to d erm 6 ns t r a t e
FORGIVENESS:' Iwill >,be
quick to forgive; I will > not
cover up my own wrongs but be
quick to..: ask for
FORGIVENESS; I will >not
SBRkE'b ; w"iJL g' pond
kind l-e ilse' \\ hoI kWrt- me Jnd
I will > not take up offenses for
others.
FORGIVENESS begins with
a strong, uncompromising
commitment to high standards.
As we all, being residents of our,
wonderful County of Gilchrist,
recommit ourselves to display-
ing the character quality of
FORGIVENESS, we continu-
ally prove that our, County "is a
County of Character because
it's a County ihat Cares.

daily basis and we offer lots of
reading acti cities but it sure is

Our children have had the op-

GREETINGS
Looking through my collec-
tion of postcards, I came across
this one showing an actual pic-
ture of ice breaking up on the
Yukon at Forty Mile, Alaska. In
the background are people
standing in front of the Forty
Mile Hotel with other buildings
surrounding it. The postcard
was stamped on April 1, 1911 to
someone in Tacoma, Washing-
ton when postcards only re-
quired a 10 stamp.


Doesn't looking at all these
blocks of ice floating around
make you want to be one of
them, cooling off on these hot,
humid days of summer? I know
that's how it makes me feel..

It doesn't take much skill to
write a-love letter. Getting it
back is the tough part...

FANTASTIC FACTS
Cats love things that make
interesting sounds and the crin-
kle of paper (like paper bags) is
one of them. They view this toy
as something they can use for
hunting practice. They love to
pretend that they are stalking
prey and a stiff paper bag works
quite well for them.

You can tell more about a
person by what he says about
others than you can by what
others say about him...

RIB TICKLERS
A salesman asked the woman
who answered the door, "Can
you tell me where to find your
husband, madam?"
The angry wife answered im-
patiently, "Why don't you go
down to the lake and look for a
fishing pole with a worm on
each end?"

The children had all been
photographed, and the teacher
was trying to persuade them to
buy a copy of the group picture.
"Just think how nice it will be
to look at it when you are all
grown up and say, 'There's Jen-
nifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's
Michael, he's a doctor."'
A small voice at the back of
the room rang out, "And there's
the teacher! She's dead!"

A teacher was giving a lesson
on the circulation of the blood.
Trying to make the matter
clearer, she said, "Now, class, if
I stood on my head, the blood,
as you know, would run into it,
and I would turn red in the
face."
"Yes," the class said.
,cTn igslt thpl 1\IJe I
was standing-upright-in the or-
dinary position, the blood
doesn't run into my feet?"
A little fellow shouted,
"Cause your feet ain't empty."

Sam went to court and re-
ceived a fine for parking his car
in a no-parking zone.
"Do you have anything to
say?" asked the judge.
"Yes," he replied. "They
shouldn't put up such mislead-
ing notices."
"What do you mean?" the
judge asked.


Mina Willis, PharmD/PA-C

"The sign said, 'Fine for
parking here.'"

Our seven-year-old son, Tom,
was going to his first movie
with his father. The film was a
real tearjerker, so I warned him
it was very sad. But he was un-
deterred.
When they returned, I asked
if he had cried at all.
"Yes," he admitted.
"Which part?" I asked.
"The part where Dad
wouldn't buy me any popcorn."

Never look down on someone,
unless you are helping them
up...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
You should never cook corn
in salted water,, as it toughens
the kernels.

Trouble-like the hill ahead,
straightens out when you
advance upon it...

QUIET REFLECTIONS'
Through Windowpanes
When troubles come and friend-
ships fail,
And no one seems to care,
I've but to gaze through win-
dowpanes
Tbl.nJ .myrGod'is there! ~
To see the pictures,
green with grass,,
And hear the lowing cattle's
call,
To see the swallows in their
flight,
I know God made them one and
all.
To some, the house may seem
secure,
May fill their needs from
strength within;
But oh, for me, to gaze outside
Gives me such joy and hope of
men!

Terri Wilson
LCCC's Teddy's
Treasures
By Terri Cochran Wilson,
Lake City Community College
Student
Lake City Community Col-
lege (LCCC) is a melting pot of
students, with as many different
cultures as there are courses
available. However, if one digs
deep enough they will find that
LCCC is more than a melting
pot; it is a virtual treasure chest.
Students whose brilliance and
character are far more valuable
than can be measured attend the
college. One example is Teddy
Pruett, a native Lake City resi-
dent in her second year at the
college, whose extraordinary ca-
reer and quilting talent have
won her national acclaim.
We spent several hours at her
Westside home looking at many
quilts; some that had won her
national recognition in juried
competitions stunned the eye.
Teddy is a non-traditional stu-
dent; she has children .and
grandchildren, and a successful
business as a certified appraiser
of quilts and textiles. Although
every minute of her day'seems
to be filled with impossible de-
tails of business, schoolwork,
and family life, she still finds
that returning to her quilting ta-
ble is a balm to her soul.
Upon entering her infamous
"quilting'cottage," I find that it
is like entering fantasyland.
Gazing about I see that every
color under the rainbow is rep-.
resented in the fabrics folded on
her shelves. Buttons, beads, and
baubles of every kind are acces-
sible and their disorder forms a
tapestry on the walls. We sit at
her table and look out, the
French doors at the pond, which
is only eight feet from the door-
steps and settle into a quiet con-
versation,
STeddy discovered her love of
quilting,,by ,accident, when she
Decided to 'make. her daughter a
quilt in 1974. Finding that she
enjoyed putting together indis-
criminant remnants of fabric,
she began making them as a
hobby. She took her first quilt-
ing class in 1982 and discovered
that according to the class she
had been doing it all wrong.
SHowever, quilting by the rules
seemed to steal all the joy that
she had previously felt, and af-
ter 15 years, she liberated her-
self from the strictures of the
quilting commandments. She
began to quilt in a free-fall
fashion, trusting her heart to
lead her hands. She likes her


quilts to tell a story and convey
a message from her heart.
However, like a great novel,
those who read it, find what it is
they are seeking; her quilts can
be compared in the same man-
ner. Even if you do not appre-
ciate or have knowledge of the
quilting world, you can find
within her stitches, and within
the textile facade, a secret that is
all your own. She repeatedly
states, "I am not a great artist,
not even a good one.' But, I
think I am a good communica-
tor." She hopes that her quilts
"speak" to those who look at
them and that they can walk
away with a feeling, may it be
joy, sorrow, or even just plain
humor.
Teddy's quilts have gained
national acclaim in magazines,
newspapers, juried competi-
tions, and are currently on dis-
play in several states. Her quilts
will be featured in a solo art
show in southwest Florida this
November and December and
she is also co-authoring a book
with a colleague from Virginia
titled, Weep No More, My Sis-
ter. Her favorite quilt is "Me-
morial Day" which is a collage
representing all the branches of
the military, using 100 years of
fabric. Beyond her title of tex-
tile historian and being a certi-
fied appraiser of quilts and tex-
tiles, (the only one in Florida),
she aspires to direct the Rocky
Mountain Quilt Museum, in


Colorado.
Teddy's quilting artisanship
resembles her life in many
ways. All the splicing, overlap-
ping, and concessions she
makes in her quilts, are equiva-
lent to those she makes in her
every day life. Caring for her
family and extended family,
working fulltime, continuing her
education and finding time to be
creative is surely a challenge to
even the most energetic. How-
ever, she is spontaneous and her
instincts are what make her spe-
cial. Teddy is grateful for the
time she spends at her sewing
table, which shows in her soul-
stirring narratives made from
textile goods, but she is also
thankful to have the time to ful-
fill her dream of furthering her
education, making her one of
LCCC's jewels among the
treasure chest of students.

Have You Read To
Your Child Today?
By Anna Wild
Did you know that "more
than eight out of ten children
with severe word reading prob-
lems at the end of first grade
performed below the average
range at the beginning of third
grade?" Or that "children who
fall behind in first grade have a
one in eight chance of ever
catching up to grade level with-


out extraordinary efforts?" Were
you aware that "80 percent of
children who were deficient in
word recognition skills in the
first grade were poor readers in
fourth grade?" Research shows'
that -"74 percent of children who
are poor readers in the' third
grade remain poor readers in the
ninth grade." Here in Gilchrist
County Superintendent Vickers
and his staff are taking a proac-
tive approach in taking steps to
make sure these statistics do not

ring true in our county.
Right now 72 percent of stu-
dents in the third grade in Gil-
christ County scored three or
higher on the FCAT. That
sounds pretty good, but what
about the 28 percent that are
below grade level? As a com-
munity we must each take on
the responsibility 'of making
sure every one of our children
ate given the ability to read.
There may be many factors that
effect the lives of the individu-
als that scored below this "ap-
proved level," but those reasons
will not matter to that child
when they are an adult with a'
child who in turns has a reading
deficiency 'not because they
cannot learn to read, but be-
cause the first time they were
ever read to was in Pre-K or
kindergarten. Janet Langford.
elementary education director
for Gilchrist County, heard a
great story that brought the
problem home. Imagine a child
who has a father who plays.
baseball, with, his t\o- ear-old ,
child one hour e\ers dao of
summer. This father does this
every summer and when: the
child.'is old enough. for little
league he tries out for the team.
Now imagine a child itring out
for little league that has never so
much as held a bat. How much
do they differ at try outs? How
will they differ from each other
in another two or three years on
the baseball field? The same
differences are in a child who'
has been read to before they
enter the school system and the
one who has not. .
You see a child's brain is
amazing with all it does from
birth to about age eight or nine.
Then the brain changes and does
not process and store informa-
tion the same way it used to.
I'm not sa ing they do not learn
any more but simpl).that
chemical changes occur that ef-
fect how they learn. This is
why it is so vital to work with
our children from birth through
the third grade. This 'work" is
not hard. .As a matter of fact (he
work; you must do with.your
child during this timewill be
thought of as nurturing and
loving and all you have to do is
read to your child for about 20
minutes a day. That's about
how long it will take to slowly

know one word from another, or
that your first grader does not
recognize every word. If you do
this every night before bedtime
(or any time) you are giving
them one of the greatest gifts
you can give as a parent, your
'time! When you follow along
with your finger'your child will
recognize that you read left to
right, from the top dow n and so
many things we do without
thinking. They will pick up on

to explain what a question mark
means. And this is when they
begin to recognize those basic
words that are the foundation
for future learning. You have
the chance to be your child's
first teacher and all it will cost is
20 minutes a day!
That sounds pretty simple, but
life has a habit of taking away
precious time. Sometimes we
have to make sacrifices to keep
some time to invest in our chil-
dren. I know this can be very
hard. Every day we all must
balance our needs to make
money to pay the bills and put
food on the table and a roof over
our children's heads. We can-
not compromise this, and still
we must find 'a way to balance
our children's basic needs and
their educational needs. We can
no longer simple\ shrug and say
that's what the\ go to school
for. Times have changed and
we must take it seriously.
Luckily our school district is
one that asks questions. eeen if
they do not always hae a pretty
answer. Recently Superinten-
dent Vickers had the opportu-
nity to read some books that re-
searched reading and how
children differed who had tari-
ous reading skills. The good
news is the books are not all
doom and gloom: they also gale
some ideas on how to break the
chain and improve skills. Su-
perintendent Vickers was so
impressed b. these books that
he started handing them out to
teachers and assorted faculty.
Being a man who Wants the best-
for his district, he \%as speaking
to Clif Bradley of Capital City
Bank who mentioned a fund-
raiser that the Le\) County
School District found to be suc-
cessful. They have a. gala each
year to raise funds for scholar-
ships. Well, this gave Mr.
\'ickers the idea to have a gala'
to raise funds to increase read-
ing awareness throughout our
county.
The vision he and his staff
has' is that "hen .you drive,
around 'town you (parents,
grandparents, sisters, aunts, un-
cles) will see signs asking
"Hae You Read to a Child To-
daY?" He ,ants Pre-K through
third grade teachers tp have.
funds to increase reading skills
.in a manner the teacher feels
will work best: Yes, our teach-
ers Will be able to use some of
ihat 'creativity they' learne n Ib
c'qrllegb"and have a say-iinrho
they teach reading skills. Mr.
Vickers wants.the funds raised
to also buy books, to give to the
children to take home; he knows
not all children have books at
home to read. He plans to work
with the libraries to help in-
crease their use by our students
and parents. Remember our li-
braries are FREE and you have
a 'huge variety of books to
choose from'! ,
You can look for information
about his fund-raising gala after
school resumes later this year.
In the meantime, please take 20
minutes but of your day, and
read to a child, it makes a huge
difference in their life, not just
now but throughout their life-
time! If \ou are a parent with a
reading disability. talk to )our
child's school, our superinten-
dent's office oi your local li-
brary, there is help available!

day?:


Guardian Ad Litem
Program In Need Qf
Volunteers I
There are many children in
Levy and Gilchrist counties to-
day :who have been abused.
abandoned, or neglected and are
in the court system that desper-
ately need a guardian ad litem


volunteer to represent their best
interests.. A guardian ad litem's"
role for an abused child is to 'be
the child's voice in the court
system. There are supportive
staff who provide constant
guidance and advice to the vol-
unteers working with the chil-
dren. The volunteers will work
directly with the children, their
families, their foster parents or
caregivers, their teachers, coun-
selors, and with their case
workers. It is a very,important
responsibility with a rewarding
outcome in knowing that the
best interests of a child were
represented.
If you are interested in play-
ing an integral role in a child's
life for at least one year, please
give me a call for more infor-
mation. There is a pre-service
training of 30 hours, with four
:of those observing court pro-
ceeding. Please contact Deanna
Castell, case coordinator. at:

Deer Dog
Registration
Program Goes
Statewide In
2005-2006
In Da\tona Beach recently
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commissioni
(FWC) voted to expand state-
wide, a registration program for
deer-dog hunting on private
lands for the 2005-06 hunting
season. The decision was based
on the overall success of a pilot
program adopted last hunting
season in the Northwest Region.
in lieu.of more restrictive meas-
,ures.. ,
According to a report pre-
sented by Lieutenant Colonel
Mike Wiwi, deputy director of
,the' Division of Law Enforce-
:ment, the additional time and
costs associated with adminis-
tering' this program across the
state will be minimal and mati-
ageable for current FWC staff
and budget.
Wi~ i said 70 individual
properties, representing 55 deer-
dog hunt clubs, participated in
the pilot program. Those prop-
erties ranged from 40 to 31,000
acres and \ere situated in 14 of
the 16 counties within the


Northwest Region.
With the pilot program in
place, complaints dropped 27
percent, compared to the aver-
age of the previous four hunting
seasons. More importantly,
only five complaints were asso-
ciated with registered deer-dog
hunting clubs. In comparison, a
review of last season's com-'
plaint data for, the North Central
and Northeast regions, where
registration was not required.
showed an increase in deer-dog
hunting complaints from the av-
erage of the previous, four
hunting seasons.
At the conclusion of the,
2004-05 hunting season, the
FWC conducted a survey of all,
participants of the pilot program
to determine levels of satisfac-
tion associated with registration
requirements and to identify any
concerns \\ith the program or
process. Almost half the par-
ticipants responded, and all said
the process of completing the,
application, registering and.
comply ng \"ith the neu re-
quirements uas eas\ or \ery
easy. Nearly 90 percent said
the) experienced no problems
with affixing their assigned


I


Ti~


identification numbers to their
dogs' collars, and almost 70
percent thought the new regis-
tration was a valuable tool for
helping manage deer-dog hunt-
ing on private lands.
During May, the FWC con-
ducted six public meetings
across the.state to make certain
hunters and other interested
groups:
were fully aware of thelpro-,
Iposal for statewide registration,

had the opportunity to ask.
questions to better understand
the specifics :of the proposal,
and
could provide comments.
These meetings helped clarify
some common misunderstand-
ings about the proposal and
fostered broader support from
hunters and other stakeholders,
Wiwi said.

new statewide deer-dog regis-.
tration program, visit

We have a few artists exhib-
iting at the present time. Stop
by and become acquainted with
their work. Make arrangements
for exhibiting your work. The
space is limited.
Our plans for "Meet the Art-
ists" and "Open House" have
not been formulated yet. Inter-
ested members wanting to help,
i.e., arrangements, refreshments,-
etc., contact Barbreez.
What is your input about
holding evening meetings rather
than during the day? Many
have expressed it would be eas-
ier for them. What do you think
would be a good time? Do you
want the meetings to continue at
a local restaurant or vary meet-
ings at member's homes or at 74
SE 870 Street? So far, those
asked have thought the latter the
best choice. Our May meeting
was not held in Ann Chewing's
beautiful Fanning Springs gar-
den because she stated there
would be more insects than
members. She offered the use
of her charming home. Mem-
bers felt that would be an impo-
sition; the meeting was held at
Storybook House.
Speaking of books. A few of
us are bringing in books relative
to various subjects for mem-
ber's use while visiting Story-
book House. In addition to
bookcases we also have a 4 x 7
glass show case. Another
member donated the use of a,
TV and VCR for showing tapes.
Annual dues of $12 are due
by September 2005.
Out of state galleries and mu-
seum arrangements for our art-
ists exhibiting fell through be-
cause we weren'tt able to
promise a minimum of 25 par-
ticipating artists.
Our petitions for the library
and senior center for Old

ongoing and .being received
well. We are grateful for the

love our raffle items also. Does
anyone have an item they would
like to donate to be raffled?
Looking forward to your sug-

My Favorite Food
By Mitchell Gentry,
Summer is almost here, and I
love it because it is the season
for my favorite food. I know
exactly the right time to select
this succulent fruit, when it has
the best flavor, texture, and
sugar content. I consider myself
a connoisseur of this food. Be-
cause so many farms were built
with the production of this crop,
Gilchrist County was almost
named in honor of it. It is an
amazing fruit that evokes all the
senses to indulge in its selec-
tion, preparation and eating.
To select the perfect one is a
critical first step, and requires
part folklore and science. Dif-.
ferent varieties have different
tastes, and can be easily distin-
guished by size, shape, pattern,
and color. The mosaic of light
and dark stripes is found on the
large and long Crimson Sweet,
and even larger Jubilee.' The
intricate, lace like, gray veining
on the light green Charleston
Grey makes it unmistakableto
recognize, or.the perfectly round
and dark green (almost black)
Cannonball, is aptly named for
its appearance.
Several things happen when
the fruit is ripe. A subtle flat-
ness occurs on the bottom (a
settling that happens just as it
ripens). The color of the belly
of the fruit, the area that lies on
the ground, will turn a slight
yellowish color. The leaf ne\t


to the stem will die as it ripens.
Whether it is folklore or a viable
method of determining ripeness,
Old-timers thump the fruit, and
listen for a certain change in
sound or tone that is created by
changes within the fruit as it
ripens.
Once the selection is made
care must be taken to ensure
maximum taste and flavor. The
fruit can weigh 20 to 50 pounds,
and must be handled with care.
Placing it in the car seat to
transport is the best way to
cushion and cradle it. It mustn't
be bruised because it will ruin
the edible portion inside. Be-
fore eating, the fruit must be
cold, and this process takes 8-10
hours in the refrigerator. In the
days before refrigerators, local
people would place the fruit in
the springs, to let them'cool.
Up to a dozen of these giant
fruits bobbing in the springs'
was a common sight.
Eating this fruit makes all the
trouble selecting and preparing
it worth' the effort. The initial
cut is to halve the large fruit: If
it is perfectly ripe, as the knife
is inserted and firmly pulled the
length, a magical popping sound
of the rind splitting just ahead of
the blade can be heard. This
releases a unique smell that
floods the senses. It is sweet
like the nectar of a flower, and
makes a person's-mouth water
in anticipation. The two halves
roll apart to reveal a crimson red


flesh that is juicy, and immedi-
ately forms a sweet dewy con-
densation on the exposed sur-
face of the flesh. The texture is
firm, but can almost be crushed,
with the pressure of the tongue..
It tastes wonderfully sweet, and'
each bite dissolves completely,
into a mouthful of succulent
juice. A cold sweet confection,
that delights the taste buds.
This fruit is the watermelon,
and it is unlike any other. No
wonder our fore-fathers wanted
to name Gilchrist County in
honor of this fruit. It,is part of
the heritage of this area that
people like, just as they like the
taste of watermelon itself.

Mommy, What Is A
Sinkhole?
By Mustapha Kane,Ph.D.
Associate Professor Of Earth
Science At Lake City
Community College
Sinkholes seem' to be popping
up everywhere in Florida. Why
is that, and why Florida? Sink-
holes are simply a part of
Earth's geological processes. In
California they have earth-
quakes and landslides. In Flor-
ida we have, well...sinkholes.
The main problems with sink-
holes are property destruction
and contamination of ground-
water, other than that they're
cool as springs, ponds, and
lakes.
What Creates Sinkholes?
Sinkholes, sinking creeks,
caverns, and caves, are part of
Earth's landscape known as
Karst topography, named after
the Krs region in-Slovenia (part
of former Yugoslavia) where
such topography is well devel-
oped. Karst topography forms
when carbonate rocks, (calcite
or dolomite rich rocks) such as
limestone and dolostone, or
other soluble rocks, like salt
beds or gypsum rocks, are dis-
solved by slightly acidic (from
reaction with carbon dioxide in
the air) groundwater or runoff.
Groundwater circulating
along fissures and cracks on
carbonate rocks, simply dis-
sol es the rocks. The results are
openings that get bigger and
bigger as more of the rock is
dissolved, until the roof col-
lapses. Sinkholes can also be
created by, excess withdrawal of
groundwater.' When ground-
water is' pumped out quicker
than it is replenished, as it often
happens in fast growing cities or
in semi-arid to arid regions, the
aquifer aftere r bearing rock) is
then emptied, and the ground
collapses producing a giant
sinkhole. This is known as land
subsidence.. To present land
subsidence from occurring.
treated wastewater or surface
water is collected and injected
through injection wells, into the
ground.
Any major natural or human-
induced modifications: to' the
ground% after flo s\istem. either
bN diverting it. adding to it, or
pumping out huge quantities of
water, are likely to destabilize
the fragile aquifer and create
sinkholes. The most common
type of sinkhole in Florida is, the
collapse sinkhole with, steep-
sided, deep holes in the around.
It is'frequently caused by fluc-
tuations in the groundwater ta-
ble that stresses and weakens
the roof of the cavity created in
the limestone.' It occurs \then
the limestone rock, is overlain
by thick soils and clay that col-
lapse. Florida ponds, lakes, and
springs are commonlI the result
of sinkhole formation.
Why So Many Sinkholes in
Florida? '.
Sinkholes are prevalent in any
region % here carbonate rocks
are a predominant geological
formation. This is the case for
Florida which Karst topography
reflects the abundance of car-
bonate rocks, What makes
Florida have so many carbonate
rocks such as limestone? To
answer this question we have to
look at the geological history of
the peninsula. Until some 1.5
million years ago much of
Florida was under the ocean.
During that period, dying ma-
rine organisms accumulated' at
the bottom of the ocean. Layers
and layers of shells were then
cemented and compacted on the
seafloor to form sedimentary
rocks.. These layered rocks
formed from sea shells are.
commonly known as limestone.
When the Spanish landed on
the coast of Florida they used
coquina (a limestone rock) to
build St. Augustine Fort' be-
cause it was the -easiest and
most abundant construction
material they could find on the
peninsula. Phosphate deposits
mined in Florida, as well as
shark teeth found in some peo-
ple's backyard are also a re-
minder that this area was once
at the bottom of the ocean.
What Can We Do to Prevent
Sinkholes From Occurring?
Sinkholes can pop up from
out of nowhere in karstic re-
gions, but there are some warn-


ing signs such as the formation
of small ponds, falling trees or
fence posts, cracks in walls and
floors, etc., that can help detect
them early. The sure way to
prevent sinkhole formation is
.surveying.
Sinkhole risk can be assessed
in any area by surveying the
ground using Ground Penetrat-
ing Radar. An airborne Infrared
Imaging Survey can also help
detect areas with potential for
sinkholes. The thickness of
limestone layers and their depth
vary from area to area in Flor-


ida. Not all places have the
same risk of developing sink-
holes.
Besides being a geohazard,
sinkholes in Florida constitute
the primary pathway (recharge
area) for rainwater to quickly,
replenish the groundwater.
Therefore, they are an important
part of the aquifer system that
supplies 95 percent of the state
drinking water and produces the
many springs that make our
sunshine state a beautiful place.
However, the problem is that
sinkholes can also be, in many
cases,, a major, quick, and sure
pathway for polluted surface
water to reach and contaminate
the groundwater.
Rapid increase in urbaniza-
tion also contributes to sinkhole
formation as it lowers the water
table and alters the drainage
pathways.
The number of human-
induced sinkholes appears to
have doubled since the 1930s.
Florida, now the fourth most
populous state in the nation, is
also one of the nation's most
highly urbanized states, and
contains some of the fastest-
growing cities and counties in
the U.S. If nothing is done to
better manage population
growth and urbanization, and
preserve the vital resource, that
is the groundwater, we can ex-
,pect the number of these hu-
man-induced sinkholes, the
property damage,' and the
groundwater, pollution that goes
with it, to increase dramatically
in the near future.


Crop Disaster
Program Announced
Eligible producers may now
sign up at the Gilchrist-Dixie
FSA County Office for USDA's
Crop Disaster Program, an-
nounces Wendy G. Luzader,
County Executive Director.
This program authorizes crop
loss assistance, for producers
who suffered 2003 or 2004 and
certain 2005 crop losses from
damaging weather Due to sev-
eral ongoing programs, Mrs.
Luzader strongly encourages
producers to call the office and
schedule an appointment. This
-il l saCe )oU time and many of
-the forms can be prepared and
read\ for your review.
The members and adisors of
the local FS N County Commit-
tee, county office staff and I are
pleased to be able to provide
these benefits to our producers
and will attempt to do so as.
quickly as possible Droughts,
floods and hurricanes are un-
predictable weather events that
put our farmers and ranchers at
risk in producing a dependable
and affordable national food
supply. Producers are reminded
there are several program re-
quirements that must be ap-
Spro\ed by the District Director
and State Committee before
payments can be issued. Appli-
cations are being accepted in
anticipation of this approval
process being completed.
Eligibility for CDP is similar
to that of the 2001-2002 Crop
Disaster Program. Producers
suffered, a greater than 35-
percent production loss and/or
more than a 20-percent quality
loss are eligible. The payment
rate for CDP has been increased
to 65 percent of the established
commodity price for insured
crops and noninsured crops, and
60 percent of the :price com-
modities. Previous disaster as-
sistance provided payment of 50
percent of the established com-
modity price for insured and
non-insurable crops and 45 per-
cent for uninsured crops. The
payment limitation is $80,000
per person for all
2003/2004/2005 CDP pay-
ments.
Producers may apply for CDP
for any crops that are eligible
for coverage under the Federal
Crop Insurance or the Nonin-
sured Assistance Program. This
program results' from Congres-
sional passage last October of
the Military Construction Ap-
propriations and Emergency
Hurricane Supplemental Appro-
priations Act, 2005 (the Act).
As part of the CDP imple-
mentation process, USDA has,


prepared a Fact Sheet that con-
tains information about the dis-
aster assistance programs. For
more information on these is-
sues, visit USDA's web site at:
http://disaster.fsa.usda.gov/
You can schedule an ap-
pointment by contacting the
Gilchrist-Dixie FSA County Of-
fice at 352-463-2358.

Making the decision to have a
child is momentous. It is to de-
cide forever to have your heart
