Gilchrist Chamber of Commerce Welcomes

New Executive Director Maureen Gentry


By Anna Wild
Please welcome Maureen
Gentry the next time you stop
by the Gilchrist County Cham-
ber of Commerce. She is our
new Executive Director of the
chamber and is very excited
about her new position.
Maureen has been working in
this new position for about six
weeks now and is happy to say,
"Every day I'm learning some-
thing new about the town or
learning something new about
the people." Maureen and her,
family are new to the Trenton
area, but definitely not new to
Florida or the small town at-
mosphere. She and her family
previously lived in Homosassa
where she was an assistant ad-
ministrator of a medical center
for 15 years. When they origi-
nally moved to Homosassa, it
was very much like Trenton is
now, one traffic light and very
few businesses and she saw it
grow to what it is today. She
prefers the smaller town envi-
ronment. to the larger city be-
cause of the warmer, friendlier
community spirit. She was de-
lighted to share that I', cver
worked in a job where the
mayor came in and said, 'Hi,.
I'm so and so and I just wanted
to meet you.'"
Maureen is the mother of a
son who now resides in Cleve-
land, Ohio and a daughter who
works with the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Department. Her hus-
band, William Gentry, is em-
ployed with the Lancaster Cor-
rectional Facility. He had
previously worked with Florida
Power and prior to that he
served in the United States
Navy for 13 years.
Maureen realizes she has
some very big shoes to fill. She
has learned that "Lois did it all,
Lois was a good person, she

City Counc:

As one of the country's top-
ranked labor layers and a
partner in a prestigious law
firm, Kevin Hyde has already
climbed high in the legal
profession. He has been selected
as one of the "Best Lawyers in
America" over the last several
years, named by Florida Trend
as one of legal elite Top 100.
Now he's arrived at the
pinnacle of the Jacksonville
City Council. As its new
president, he'll guide the 19-
member body toward solutions
for a tight city budget, clogged
roads and an ever-more costly
courthouse.
It could be a nightmare to
some-yet Hyde insists he
volunteered to run for the job.
He was sworn into office
Thursday, July 14th and began
his one year term on Friday,
July 15".
The Presidency of the
Jacksonville City Council is
regarded as the second-most
powerful in City Hall, after the
Mayor, because the president
has the power to push initiatives
and hand-pick council
committee leaders who
determine which issues are
heard.
Kevin Hyde at 42 is still a
political newcomer. His first
elected office is the at-large seat
he now holds, one in which he
represents all of the city instead
of a specific district. Elected in
2003, he is among the fastest to

Fletcher was our previous Ex-
ecutive Director of the chamber
and had the advantage of grow-
ing with the chamber over the
past six years. Unfortunately
Maureen was not hired prior to
Mrs. Fletcher's departure so she
did not get the side-by-side
training so many of us receive
with a new position. Fortu-
.nately, Lois was sweet enough
to visit Maureen and fill in some
gaps for her. With "Down
Home Days" only about four
months away, Maureen knows


all eyes are looking at her. In
addition to the office work and
chamber functions, Maureen is
responsible for planning Down
Home Days, the Chamber of-
Commerce Christmas Party, and
the Chamber of Commerce An-
nual Banquet. "The chamber is
the center of the town for new
people," explained Maureen.
She has lived in a few places
since her husband was in the
military and understands how
important the chamber of com-
merce is to everyone. The

form in 1968.
"I feel absolutely ready to
assume this role," Hyde
explained. Hyde has served as
the council's vice president and
floor leader and has led several
high-profile council committees,
including those on the Super
Bowl and the Duval County
Courthouse.
Hyde wasn't challenged for
the presidency, a rare


occurrence. Councilman Lad
Daniels said that may have been
because of the respect Hyde's
fellow members have for him.
"Kevin will be a fine
president for us,". Lad Daniels
said, who served as council

Jo Smith Exhibits Sincerity As

Character Council Personality Of


The Month

By Geneva Cornwell
Being around the July 05
"Personality of the Month" is
like trying to catch a giant soap
bubble; when you touch one, it
bursts and the exuberance sim-
ply sprays all over. Mrs. Jo
Smith is that type of person,
who, through her joyful voice
and genuine desire to do what is
right with transparent motives,
displays SINCERITY in every
part of her being.
You can pinch Mrs. Jo
Browning Smith, for she's a
Gilchrist County native and
Trenton High School alumni,
and the number is getting fewer
by the year. Her husband,
Hampton, and she, have two
grown sons, Cecil and Eli, with
five marvelous grandchildren
and these offspring fill their
cups to overflowing. She at-
tends Priscilla Baptist Church
where she is the Senior Adult
Group leader. She also volun-
teers her time in teaching a
"scrap booking" class at the
church to ages 50+.
Before an automobile acci-
dent placed her in a position of
having to sell her flower shop


Jo Smith
for nine years previous, "Ms."
Jo received such sincere pleas-
ure in rotating herself between
Bell Elementary and Trenton
Elementary schools by "adopt-
ing" one class a month. Every
Thursday she would go into a
specific classroom and teach a
craft to the kids. She believes
that there are two groups of
people in our society who need
to be sincerely spoken for, and
that is children and senior
adults.
Because Mrs. Smith loves the
Lord, she believes that to be a


good witness for Him one must
be sincere. When that
SINCERITY spills over from
one's life, it shows that good
things can happen in the lives of
individuals who are touched by
it. This lovely lady practices the
golden rule: "Do unto others as
you would have them do unto
you," for she believes that as a
person sacrifices for someone
else, one day a need may arise
where that sacrifice will be re-
paid, most of the time, two-fold.
Jo wants to be remembered as
someone who took her grand-
daddy's words to heart and lives
by them, "Give an honest day's
work for an honest day's pay,
and if you are sincere then it
will always come home to you."
She presently works as her hus-
band's secretary/bookkeeper
with his heating, electrical and
plumbing business. It's people
like Mrs. Jo Smith which give
character to what the Character
First! Initiative is trying to
achieve here in Gilchrist County
by proving that its people are a
part of A County of Character
because it is a County that
Cares.

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Enjoying different foods not
ordinarily served together
A group of friends and I
went fishing last week out of
Suwannee. I wanted to catch
some snapper and Captain
Hallie Rollison of Rock Hawk
Charters told me that he could
take us. The trip was interesting
to say the least. The weather
was hot beyond belief, but
enjoyable. The day on the boat
with Billy Rogers, Mark
Schuler, Andy Braley, Captain
Rollison arid myself was
entertaining.
We were fishing for grouper,
but Jewfish (Goliath grouper)
turned out to be the species of
the day.
Billy and Mark were fishing
on the same side of the boat at a
spot well known for Jewfish.
Mark got the first bite and
wrestled withthte fish until he
pulled a gag grouper into the
boat. Mark explained the fish
appeared to be short of the 22"
legal size limit, but this fish had
been scraped with what
appeared to 'be' tooth-like
Lrdtches running the .length ''f
.the filh ..* U,,
A few minutes later, Billy
heaved on what appeared to be
the fish of the day. Billy stayed
hooked-up for some three to'
five minutes until the extreme
weight released and a small 20-
inch gag grouper came to the
top of the water. Billy inspected
the grouper and found that this


fish had scratch marks too, from
the gill plates to back of the anal
fin.
We had seen a barracuda
between three to four feet near
the top of the water. The scratch
marks didn't appear to be like
actual tooth marks from a shark
or a barracuda. We felt the giant
grouper was biting the smaller
species,. holding it in its mouth
until the force involving the
fight freed the smaller fish from
the jaws of the giant.
The fishing trip turned out to
provide enough grouper for two
meals for Cindy Jo and myself.
Saturday afternoon after I got
home from Suwannee, Cindy Jo
decided she would prepare
some of her South Carolina lqw
country cuisine she picked up
on one of her visits to the coast.
The dish was shrimp and grits,
and the thought of the two
together didn't sound appealing
or even tasty, but this dish
turned into a real treat.
We had the filet from the
dav before and she indicated.she
would saute' the grouper in
butter, olive oil, garlic and Old
Bay seasoning and serve it as a
side dish with our shrimp and
grits and green beans. I thought
the sound of the shrimp and
grits was interesting since the
shrimp came re-h frozen From
the dock at Fernandina Beach. I
knew if. Cindy Jo prepared it for
us, she knew that I would like it.
It was a great meal, something
that you might order at one of
those five star restaurants. We
eat this all the time at our house.

Speaking, of the boss, Cindy

Hoodia is a new and powerful nutritional
supplement for suppressing the appetite. This
substance works by simply stopping the
cravingsfor food and making you feel full after
ingesting it. The Hoodia Gordonii cactus has
been used for centuries by the Xhomani Sans
Bushment of southern Africa's Kalahari Desert,
to suppress the appetite during long hunting
trips. This impressive plant contains a special
substance which acts on the brain by sending a
signal to tell the body that it is satisfied and
does not need more food.

Letter To The Editor
On Thursday, June 23, 2005,
I attended the Tri-County GED
graduation ceremony at the
Trenton High School audito-
rium. I am writing you this let-
ter because I was shamefully
disappointed with the lack of
organization and inconsiderate-
ness that was shown toward the
graduates.
First, I would like to say that
this was an extremely important
and significant event for the
people that were graduating.
Each graduate had worked ex-
cruciatingly and diligently hard
to get to the position that they
were in that night. *This was
their special night, and they
should have been given a
graduation ceremony equally
prepared for, and fashioned, as
for any other high school gradu-
ate.
I was particularly disap-
pointed by the speech that was
given by the Assistant Superin-
tendent of the Gilchrist County
Schools, Dr. James Surrency.
Not only was he ill-prepared to
give a presentation, but he also
portrayed a lack of interest, in
the significance of the occasion.
He revealed his feelings toward
the graduates almost as if they
were receiving their GED be-
cause they were not adequately
literate to graduate from high
school. He. proceeded to dwell
on the subject of the Gilchrist
County school system and the
progress that they have made.'
Don't get me wrong, the im-
provements he spoke of were
very impressive, nonetheless,
they were irrelevantly insignifi-
cant to the occasion.
These graduates were also
from Dixie and Levy counties,
but Dr. Surrency never men-
tioned anything about'\the other
counties or even acknowledged
them.
Dr. Surrency spoke to the
graduates as if they were all
high school dropouts. That was
not the case. I am unsure to the
reasons of why each graduate
chose to obtain their GED as
opposed to their high school di-

ploma, but I did have the op-
portunity to speak with a few of
the graduates and I was im-
pressed with some of their rea-
sons.
One lady that graduated was
63 years old. She had to drop
out of high school to assist her
family by acquiring an income
and helping to raise her younger
siblings. When she was forced
into quitting school she made a
goal for herself: She wanted to
get her GED. She said, "It's
taken me 45 years, but I'm fi-
nally here."
.Another lady was 33 years
old and had five children. She
said that she wanted to get her
GED so that she could further
her education to achieve a better
job position and be an example.
to her children.
One particular young lady
had been home schooled and
was receiving her GED because
to have graduated through a pri-
vate home schooling association
would have cost approximately
$2,000. She was 18 years, old
and had already completed 33
credits at Lake City Community
College through the dual en-
rollment program and had a 4.0
GPA.
These graduates are not illit-
erate or uneducated. They de-
serve to be treated the same as
any other graduate from high
school.
A possible improvement
could be made by having a for-
mer GED graduate g ie the
presentation speech. Also, al-
lowing the graduates to speak
would give people an, opportu-
nity to see that there are other
reasons for taking the GED.
Maybe this would help to re-
move the stigma that has been
placed on the GED.
Sincerely, :
Arnold Hall

countrymen know what pre-

Cain And Abel
(Kent Heaton)


The first two children of Adam and Eve are re-
membered for more than being the first children
born to man or the first brothers but for the tragic
event that happened bet, een them. After the ex-
pulsion from the' garden, "Adam knew Eve his
wife; and she conceived, and bore Cain, and
said, I have gotten a man from the LORD. And
she again bore his brother Abel. And Abel was a
keeper of sheep, but Cain was a tiller of the.
ground" (Genesis 4:1-2).
The early record establishes that.worship has al-
ways been a part of man's relationship with God
as' Cain and Abel brought offerings untothe Lord.
This early worship was regulated by the will of
God and required obedience on the part of man.
God accepted the sacrifice of Abel but did not
show respect to Cain's offering. The focus should
not be upon the type of sacrifice in understanding
the acceptance of one and rejection of the other.
but rather the heart of those who gave it. Cain's
heart was filled with wickedness.
Satan had been successful in the garden to de-
stroy the relationship of God and man. When
Adam and Eve gave birth, Satan saw more oppor-
tunity to fill the world with his evil. He would be
so successful in latter generations that Jehovah
would destroy the world save eight souls (Gene-
sis 6-9; 1 Peter3:20). Satan had filled the heart of
Cain. When the Lord did not show respect to the
offering of Cain, intense anger rose in Cain to-
ward Abel and it did not subside. The Lord
warned Cain of his anger and told him that "sin li-
eth at,the door" and desired to overtake him
(Genesis 4:7). Cain was also told that he could
overcome the temptation caused by anger but he
did not heed God. Cain took his brother to a field
and killed him.
The murder of Abel came from a man whom
God had not shown respect to his offering because
of his own evil mind. What had Abel done? Noth-
ing but what God had commanded him to do. Cain


was striking out at God and using Abel as the tar-
get of his anger. The Hebrew writer declares: "By
faith Abel offered to God a more acceptable sac-
rifice than Cain, through which he received ap-
proyal as righteous, God bearing witness by ac-
cepting his gifts; he died" (11:4). The apostle
John explains that Cain was "of the evil one" and
murdered his brother because "his own deeds
were evil and his brother's righteous" (1 John
3:12).
Sin would continue its march of destruction
through the lineage of Cain and bring the Son of
God to earth to be killed that man could find sal-
vation. Abel was the righteous seed of those who
served God with faithfulness and endured persecu-
tion (1 John 3). Cain is the excess of sin that lives
with no restraint and follows the will of man's
evil heart to destruction. Abel understood the type
of worship that was pleasing to God and followed
that command. Cain had no respect for God and
God could not respect Cain.
It is clearly evident from the story of Cain and
Abel the grace and mercy of God. These elements
are closely tied to the need of worshipping God in
"spirit and truth" (John 4:24). There was an ac-
ceptable worship and an unacceptable worship.
The grace and mercy of God is found in the exhor-
tation and warning given by God to Cain (Genesis
4:6,7). Cain did not heed that warning and was
punished (Genesis 4:9-15). The Lord will punish
disobedience.
Peter reminds us: "The Lord is not slack con-
cerning his promise, as some men count slack-
ness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, but that all should come
to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9). Cain rejected the
mercy of God. He would not stand before God un-
excused for his actions. Worship to God must be
in accordance with the will of God. Every man
will stand accountable before God (Romans 2:6).

r Character First!
y Theme Of The
y
it Month Is
- "SINCERITY"
l By Geneva Cornwell
a SINCERITY involves action.
d However, if a person does what
t is right but with wrong or self-
ycentered motives, he "or she is
s not sincere. Practical ways to
demonstrate SINCERITY is to
e make a promise to oneself by
. saying, I will... "Be all that I
l 'can be," "Take responsibility for
e my own actions," "Respect oth-
g ers' opinions," "Always mean
s what I say," and "Not take ad-
e vantage of other people."
SINCERITY is "eagerly do-
ing what is right with transpar-
Sent motives." SINCERITY is
a the opposite of hypocrisy. The
r meaning of SINCERITY is
honesty of mind or intention
S and freedom from simulation of.
hypocrisy and genuineness.
Ancient Roman potters tried to
imitate the high-quality crafts-
manship of the Greeks, but the
Romans used inferior materials.
When the pots were fired, they
often cracked. To hide the im-
ie perfections, potters would fill
al the cracks with wax and then
Y, paint over them. Customers
11 would not know the pots were
d flawed until they were placed in
le the fire and the wax melted. As
:e a result, honest merchants la-
rt beled their good. pottery sine
0 cere Latin for "without wax."
To do what is right with
transparent motives, one needs
to be "without wax." The pur-
pose of having transparent mo-
tives is not for the sake of others
as much as for oneself. If one
8 has wrong motives, the natural
inclination is to hide them.
he Hiding wrong motives in insin-
ld cere, and the motives will
lf eventually surface, as with
JS melted wax.
1g SINCERITY is not an excuse
f-. for expressing feelings such as
e- "That's how I really feel." At
de times, it is necessary to be firm.
le However, losing one's temper is
ve not good character. Do not pro-
th claim your intentions brashly.
to Let your motives show them-
es selves through your words and
in actions.
be SINCERITY is doing what is
al right not just on the outside, but
on the inside. It is being genu-
or inely good all the way through.
g; To have good outward expres-
o- sions that are motivated by
x- wrong desires indicates insin-
le cerity. Furthermore, a sincere
ae person does what is right not
only when others are observing
Shis or her behavior, but even
to when there is no one else
ut around. SINCERITY is doing
g, what is right all the time and in
every place.
or Absolute SINCERITY is pos-
at sible only if a person is com-
or mitted to keeping a clear con-
science. Otherwise, there will
always be hidden motives
shrouded within a guilty con-
science. A clear conscience is
not obtained by justifying "why
I did what I did," but by sin-
cerely identifying what charac-
ter qualities have been violated
is by wrong actions or attitudes.
Asking for forgiveness of those
n who have been wronged dem-
TusaknFia


onstrates a higher commitment
to character than to personal
pride. A clear conscience is
achieved, by taking whatever
steps are necessary to make full
restitution and, to the best of
one's ability, to undo the wrong.
SINCERITY is being genu-
ine, even though being genuine
requires a level of vulnerability.
SINCERITY must always be
balanced with discretion. The
earlier in life a person learns the
value of character and the lim-
ited value of achievement, the
greater will be his or her ability
to overcome pressures and to
excel in life with true

SINCERITY.
As we all here in Gilchrist
County continue to learn of the
different 45 character qualities,
SINCERITY being only one of
them, we are proving to many
others that our county is a
County of Character because
it's a County, that Cares.


Nothing in all the world is
more dangerous than sincere ig-
norance and conscientious stu-
pidity.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
I can't speak for anyone else,
but I for one miss that sweet
cool rain that we'd been blessed


and it's still as cool and delight-
ful as it was those many years
ago.
But, there was no such storm
on the horizon on Wednesday,
July..20t when 27 Joyful Hearts
faced the already too-hot to
breathe heat at 9:00 a.m. As
usual, we were all glad to see
one anorher-and'catch up on al.1 -
the lttr'n'tf W '"Softi 'folkg1'
were AWOL and we are prayer-
ful that they are not ill, just too
busy or vacationing.
Of course, our Swedish
weavers were all busy.... Mary
Lou Ryder, Ruth Wilkerson,
Alice Binns, Lu Rowland,I
Jackie Moore, Cathy Strom,
Heidi Kamp and Matty Turner.
Each piece is solovely... dif-
ferent patterns and different
colors... different folks.
Syl'ia Arthur is learning to
crochet and one of our newest
members, Leona. Wirta., was
teaching her some new steps to
make it easier. Judy Pflueger,
\was crocheting precious baby
hats for preemies while Paulene
Martin was knitting, baby blan-
kets for the same.
Ann Taylor .was busy with.
her embroidery work as was.

watching a summer storm gath-
ering off in the distance. The
white mounds of what we used
to call picture clouds turning
gray and then an ominous black
filling you with that sense of
awareness that something is
brewing and about tohappen.
The wind picks up and the
pines moan a mournful sigh.
Leaves rustle and birds take a
flight while pesky squirrels re-
luctantly take leave of eating at
the bird feeders and scamper off
into the trees. Suddenly, the
temperature drops... from 980
to 72 in a heartbeat. Rolling,
rumbling thunder can be heard,,
off in the distance at first, but
moving ever closer.
It seems like everything in
nature, myself included, is
holding its breath waiting. Sud-
denly it starts. Big, huge rain-
drops, just a.few at first, pelt the
earth and shatter into a million
pieces like fine crystal hitting a
tile floor. Like, a magnificent
symphony, the wind, rain, thun-
der and lightning are harmoni-!
ously. swept together until
reaching a crescendo. Reluc-
tantly the storm begins to move.
away, leaving behind sparkling
raindrops in the gardens and
trees, puddles in e\ery nook and
cranny that. ~ill hold water for
the thirsty creatures, the smell
-of freshly wet earth'and very
often a rainbow'.. a promise of
God's love.
And: so it is with anticipation
that I watch h the skies on these
horrifically hot, :humid days.
Call me crazy, but I love those
summer thunderstorms. When I
was a kid, we ran out to play in
them, of course not if there was
really bad lightning. Every once
in a while I still play in the rain

Rita Simcoe was working on
a darling Winnie the Pooh baby
quilt that needed to be tied
while e Barbara NMynrck was knit-
ting squares for a quilt on uhich
she's working.
Elaine Nemeth, Ann Man-
gone and Barbara Strom all
were piecing our antique green
strips to our ph-so-unique
squares of our new club quilt.
It's going to. be one-of-a-kind
for sure. Barbara also brought in
a bright orange, yellow and
butterfly print quilt she is doing,
on a machine:for a "grand." It
is so cheerful and gay it makes
you smile,
Pat Luka and Maxine. Hall
puttered around and Bonnie
Edwards followed suit as she
had to leave: early. Bonnie's
daughter, Pam Pinna from Bell,
dropped by to give us loads of
wooden cut-outs to put together,
,paint, stain, etc. It was a bless-
ing for her to think of us and
nearly ever one took home sev-
eral if not more bags of wooden
"things" that will be turned into
cute country gifts for the holi-
days.
Before we knew it, it was
time for putting aside our work
and to join hands and hearts in
our ever-growing friendship cir-
cle for prayer. Looking around
the circle at the faces of these
27 women, I have to believe
that God has brought. us to-
gether for a reason. Maybe it is
a different reason for each of us.
Maybe it's to laugh, maybe it's
to share, maybe it's to forget for
a while, maybe it's to care, to
comfort, to listen, to empathize,
to be a blessing, or to receive a
blessing. I don't know His rea-
son nor do I' need to. It is
enough for me to know it is His
will and His plan... and all
God's children said, Amen.
After grace, everyone enjoyed
a lunch of chicken and rice,
spaghetti, salad, garlic bread,
iced tea, lemonade, and coffee.
There were cupcakes, ice cream
and an out-of-this-world three-
layer carrot cake made by an-
other new member, Martha
Foster from Old Town.
A survey was passed out and
collected to get input from
members on several issues. We
will be anxious to learn the re-


suits at our next regular meeting
which Will' "be Wednesday.
August 3d. 'A .'Make It and
Take It" day will be held
Wednesday, July 27th. The re-
sults may be announced then,
although not as many members
attend that meeting.
We said our goodbyes and
braced ourselves for the super-
heated cars awaiting us. My. car
thermometer registered an
overwhelming 1020... enough
said.
,Something I know to be
true... Although we can't see
You, Lord, we can, feel Your
presence when we love one an-
other (1 John 4:12).
Until next time,

Hanna Lyles of Fort White (back) and Breanna Stalvey
of Trenton are working on their "Crazy Quilt" patch.
They are learning which colors work well together and
which don't.


Valerie Fowler is just one of the 14 girls who learned
more about sewing and quilting at the 4-H sewing camp.
She said she hated embroidery when she first started it
and now it's her flaorite thing to do.


Brandalyn Bishop is learning how to piece her "Sun-
bonnet Sue" patch with the help of Jane Boyd of Bell.
This was Brandalyn's third sewing class and she said
she was having a lot of fun. Jane has been helping the 4-
H program for a little over a year now and she was very
pleased to see the girls so anxious to learn.

4-H Holds Sewing
Camp At
Springhouse
Quilters Facility
By Anna Wild
This past week the Spring-
house Quilters Guild opened
their facility to the 4-H Ad-
vanced Sewing Camp as one of
their many community projects.
The Springhouse Quilters have
sponsored this sewing camp for
almost eight years now and
Elaine Faison, 4-H Program As-
sistant, recognizes that "without
the Springhouse Quilters, the
camp could not happen." The
best thing about this camp is
"the kids want to be here, they
want to learn," one volunteer
expressed. With so many pro-
grams being cut in our public
schools our young people will
not have the opportunity to
learn skills like sewing and
quilting without groups like 4-H
and the Springhouse Quilters
Guild.
S Fourteen girls were excited
about coming, back to, learn
more about sewing and quilting.
'For most of the participants this
S was.their third time at this sew-
ing camp. During the four-day
camp, the girls made a six-patch
sampler quilt and a fabric purse
(similar to popular purse de-
signs on the market now). The
projects were more advanced
than prior groups had done and
the girls learned that discipline
and concentration are key when
learning any new skill. Their
six-patch quilt was made of sev-
eral smaller projects in which
they learned various skills.
They made an "Embroidery"
patch, a "'Sunbonnet Sue"'patch,
a "Log Cabin Quilt" patch, a
"Crazy Quilt" patch, a "Hand-
print" patch and a patch of their
own design.
The classes are designed to
teach sewing and qiil'ting but
also discipline, concentration,
coordinating colors, design,
clean up techniques and about
different fabrics. The volun-
teers found the camp very ful-
filling for themselves. It's great
when you can see how much the
girls appreciate your help and
guidance.. A simple truth that
these girls may not realize is
that without the help of these
' volunteers there would be no
one there to guide and teach
them. The 4-H program and the
Sjipilghboy s L.tQuilters ,uil,1
want to thank all the volunteers
who were able to put their lives
on hold and devote their time to
these girls. Everyone had a
great time at the camp and the
girls are looking forward to next
summer's programs.
To learn more about the vari-
ous programs offered through '4-
H or to learn ab6ut volunteer
opportunities call the Florida
Cooperative Extension Service
at 463-3174.

Thomas. Now turn off that light
and get to bed!"

Some people just aren't
happy unless they have some-
thing to complain about. I
stayed in a beautiful hotel right
on the beach in California an
idyllic spot, you'd think.
But while I was waiting to
check out, I heard the manager
ask another guest, "Did you
enjoy your stay?"
"Not really," the man said.
"I'm sorry to hear that," the
manager apologized. "What
was the problem?"
"The surf was too loud."

"My girlfriend Arlene invited
me to dinner one afternoon.
"Since she. worked near a
butcher shop, she picked up the
meat at lunch. However, the'
package of kidneys was getting
moist as we left. her office.
"The bus was extremely
crowded. I got in, but the door
started to close on Arlene. She
screamed, 'Oh, my kidneys are
caught in the door!'
"The shocked bus driver
opened the door to let her in,
but Arlene made matters worse
when she said worriedly, 'Oh
dear, now they're leaking.'"

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the
quiet voice at the end of the
day saying, "I will try again


tomorrow"...

THE COOK'S CORNER
Pineapple Jell-O Pie
1 cup sugar
1 cup crushed pineapple
3 eggs (whole or yolks)
1 pkg. strawberry Jell-O
1 can chilled evaporated milk
2 vanilla wafer or graham
cracker crusts
Bring sugar, eggs and pineap-
ple to boil, cook one minute,
add Jell-O and then let cool.
Beat evaporated milk until it
forms peaks. Add cooled mix-
ture to whipped milk. Pour into
crusts and refrigerate.
This'pie may be served the
same day that it is made, or kept
for a few days under refrigera-
tion.

The difference between ordi-
nary and extraordinary is the
extra effort you put into it...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
To water plants while on va-
cation, place one layer of bricks
in the bathtub. Fill tub almost
to the top of bricks. Set plants
on the bricks while away.

To better the future...know
the past...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Peace in Prayer
In every time of struggle,
There is peace in quiet prayer,


For the Lord is always waiting
Top uplift us from despair.
Does not matter, place or mo-
ment -
He will always hear the prayers
That call out to Him, in earnest,
For His grace of love and care.
With a tender touch of mercy,
He will brush away our tears
And becalm the swelling pas-
sions
That engulf a heart in fears,
For He is the Master Healer
Of all wounds and griefs we
bear
And our Comforter and Savior -
In the peace of quiet prayer.

run our spiritual power. We
have guided missiles and mis-
guided men.

GREETINGS
From my postcard collection I
selected this 1985 trade card
from the New York Historical
Society. As. you can see, this
adorable cat is all dressed up in
her finest and wearing her opera
glasses so she can have a better
view of what's going on.
This is quite an advertisement
for the Spencer M'F'G Co.'s
optical goods, isn't it? I love it!


In the early days of boxing a
contestant's seconds would toss
into the center of the ring the
"sponge" with which they had
wiped his face, as a sign that
their man could not continue
and they admitted defeat. The
practice is continued today, ex-
cept that a towel is substituted
for the "sponge."

jokes when they're not so

time.

came over and one brought a owner as often as she can come


over. It is quite a ways to come
but they would like to become
members.
A first quilt top was put to-
gether and quilting will be done
at home. The pattern is "Churn
Dash" and we look forward to
putting it in the State Fair in
2006.
We want to thank Wanda and
Bob Clemons for all the yarn
and thread they donated. After
the members got what they
could use to make for Shands
and Hospice, we took the bal-
ance up to the Tri-County
Nursing Home for the ladies to
get their hands busy making
what they could. Many in nurs-
ing homes need to be busy and
we know there are lots of ac-
tivities going on, but some time
to sit and knit or crochet is so
relaxing.
Lunch was again a feast with
sauerkraut casserole, green
beans, rice, cheese and maca-
roni, onion casserole,. cauli-
flower with cheese sauce, sal-
ads, Bell)'s oh-so-good apple
pie, Marie's Peach Whatever,

much more. Seventeen members
and six visitors were present.

Kevin Hyde Is
Installed As
President Of
Jacksonville
City Council
(Continued from Page One)
gave a speech in appreciation of
his newly-elected position. The
following are quotations from
the speech.
"The. Cummer Museum
currently has an -exhibit.
Normally, when reviewing a
museum exhibit, you take on a
certain thoughtful look and
speak in quiet, hushed tones.
But in this exhibit, featuring
photographs from the recent
history of Jacksonville, you
couldn't help but to laugh at
some of the photographs, point
excitedly to others, and wonder
to yourself am I going to look
that silly when old pictures of
me are shown? But the most
interesting aspect of the exhibit
was to see how Jacksonville has
changed. You see vacant land
downtown where skyscrapers
now stand and industrial activity
on the riverfront that is hard to
imagine today. You see once-
proud retailers and a bustle of
activity that is the envy of what
we wish for our downtown now.
In sum, you see;our Cit) e olive,
arid in so doing, feel a special
sense of pride as we' review
what our home was, became,
and with imagination, what it
will be.

our personal history. Kathi and
I are approaching our twentieth
year living in Jacksonville. I
vividly recall one Saturday
morning when I drove my new
bride from the University of,
Florida to Jacksonville for the
first time. We had no idea
where we were going or where
we were going to live. That
inspires confidence in a new
husband. So we took the
Stockton Street exit and
stumbled into the Riverside/
Avondale area. Because it
reminded Kathi of the area
.where she grew up in Northern
Virginia, we located there.
Despite having changed homes
a few times, we haven't moved
more than three miles from that
original exit.
"We've loved our area of,
town. It is near the Lakeshore
Church of Christ where we,
worship. That congregation,
many of whom are here tonight,
quickly became our family. But
if home is where the heart is, it
becomes all the more so when
the kids are born. Our girls
were born at'St. Vincent's
Hospital. With our first,
Virginia, we were fortunate to
receive one of the embroidered
blankets the nuns used to give
to nev\ parents. Even though
that tradition "aS discontinued
when our second daughter was
born, the presence of the nins-
was still very much present.
We were having trouble
deciding on a name for our new
baby. The good sister told us


we weren't leaving unless the
child had a name. Imagine the
look of surprise when we, a
Protestant couple, told this
Catholic nun that we were
naming our daughter Michal,
after the wife of the Jewish
king, David. Even though she
walked away in disbelief, she
did then let us bring her home.
"Jacksonville has blessed us.
I have been honored to spend
my entire legal career with the
same law firm, Foley ,&
Lardner. Many of my partners
and colleagues are here tonight.
I want you to know they are not
only good lawyers they are
good people. Our family is
blessed that we have found a
sense of community, civic pride
and involvement that has
allowed us to be involved. I am
blessed that while I currently
serve in office I have the
opportunity to daily meet with
community leaders to discuss
issues important to Jacksonville,
as well as constituents who
bring individual needs 'to our
attention. And, finally, I am
blessed to be a part of this
Council and serve with each of
my colleagues. .,:I
"History, though. is more
than personal experiences.
There are some things that we
share collectiel as a City.
Does it seem possible that it
was less than a year ago when
we faced three hurricanes
possibly hitting the First Coast?
While we learned valuable
lessons from preparing for and


weathering those storms, it's a
history none of us want to
repeat. Remember Super Bowl
XXXIX? In may ways, it seems
like ancient history, but in other
ways, as if it only occurred
yesterday. I suspect all of us
took something from that
special chapter of Jacksonville's
history. Two events stand for
me, neither of which are related
to the New England Patriots or
Philadelphia Eagles.
"The first occurred on the
Thursday afternoon before the
game. For whatever reason, a
sports talk radio station in
College Station wanted to talk
to me about Jacksonville's
Super Bowl experience. Mayor,
I guess you were otherwise busy'
giving one of the thousand
interviews you conducted.
Being a sports talk radio station,
I thought they would want my
in-depth analysis of the
upcoming game. But the first.
question was startling. 'Is it
true you have 10,000
volunteers? And do they really
all wear red jackets?' As we all
know, and thanks to the great
effort lead by Marty Lanaham,
it was true. And to at least one
radio station in Texas, that fact
alone was far more impressive.
or important than any matter,
related to football.
"I experienced my second
vivid memory with thousands of.
people, including I am sure,
many of you in this room.
Remember Thursday night? Do
\ou remember praying for it to


stop raining? Do you remember
thinking the temperature was a
lot lower than what we
promised the NFL it would be?
And then... do you remember
the fireworks? Do you
remember the reflection off the
Modis building? Do you
remember the shower and
cascade of fireworks from the
Main Street... almost as if it
were a pyrotechnic rain forest?
Do you remember fireworks
simultaneously being shot from
the three downtown bridges?
Do you remember how the river
and the sky were lighted almost
as one... and the image of the
cruise ship and boats that filled
the river? As I was watching
this I glimpsed and saw a very
well-dressed lady whose name
I do not know with tears
streaming down her face. She
said something for me, at least,
that will be a part of my history
in' Jacksonville. She said
simply, 'I knew we could do
something this beautiful.'
"Well we 'did, and for all
who were involved,
congratulations are due. But her
sentiment a small moment of
history) within the Super Bo\wl
experience and an even
smaller fragment of our overall
history conveys the same
spirit and Nalues as e\erv one of
those approximately) 10,000
people, who volunteered their
time to serve this community
and our guests. This City has
al.a1 s dreamed big. done what
it said it would. and at the end


of the day asked, 'What's next?'
"Tonight, as we do each
year, we transition the
leadership of our City Council.
To my colleagues, I can only
say very simply, for there is no
other way I can say it more
meaningfully, 'thank you.' You
are giving me an opportunity
and honor to lead, but more
importantly, to serve. I
appreciate your public well
wishes, but what has meant the
most has been your handshakes,
your hugs, your private
expressions of support, and the
chance to work alongside you
daily for this City that is our
home.
Kevin Hyde grew up in
Gilchrist County, attending Bell
High School. He exhibited
leadership and public speaking
skills at an early age through the
Gilchrist County 4-H programs.
He continues to be supportive of
4-H, serving two terms as the
President of Florida 4-H
Foundation, the charitable arm
of the Florida 4-H program. He
is the son of Carol Hyde-Buck
and the late Gene Hyde of Bell.

School District
Grades Announced,
15 Districts Make
"A," 23 Districts
Show Improvement
Recently Governor Jeb Bush
and Commissioner of Education
John Winin announced grades
for Florida's 67 school districts
for 2005. Overall, 15 districts
earned an "A," 27 a "B;" 22 a
"C," and 3 with a "D." No
Florida school districts received
an "F." The district grades are
calculated with the same com-
ponents as school grades: Stu-
dent performance on the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT), student learning
gains and the learning gains of
the lowest 25 percent.
"Students. teachers and ad-
ministrators should be proud of
the, magnificent progress we
have made," said Governor Jeb
Bush "We continue toraise the
bar on standards, and our school
districts continue to meet the
challenge."
In 2005. Florida's standards
were raised in writing and the
learning gains of students with
disabilities and limited English
proficiency were included in the
school grades calculation. In the
short term. higher standards of-
ten result in loer grades but
district grades this year reflect
only small changes from 2004
when 15 earned, an "A," 33 a
"B," 16a "C,"anj 3a "D."
* The 2005 "A" districts are
Brevard, Calhoun, Charlotte,
Clay, Gilchrist. Indian River,
Leon, Martin, Nassau, Ok-
aloosa. Palm Beach, St. Johns,
Santa Rosa, Sarasbta, and
Seminole.
The Department of Education
has been calculating district
grades since 2002. Since that
time. ten school districts have
received an "A" grade for four
consecutive years. Those dis-
tricts are Brevard. Charlotte,
Cla), Leon, Martin, Okaloosa,
St. Johns, Santa Rosa, Sarasota,
and Seminole.
"I am pleased to see ten
school districts have been able
to maintain continuously high
student achievement," said
Commissioner John Winn. "The
dedication and hard work of
students, teachers and adminis-
trators has kept them at the top,
and I congratulate everyone in-
volved for this distinguished ac-
complishment.
Despite higher standards, 23
districts 'saw an increase in
grade points over 2004.1
The top ten districts increas-
ing their grade points are:
* Duval, 22-point increase
Gadsden, 21-point
increase
Miami-Dade, 13-point
increase
Indian River, 13-point
increase
Orange, 11-point
increase
Union, 11-point increase
Hernando, 10-point
increase
Pinellas, 9-point increase
Bay, 9-point increase
Franklin, 8-point increase
"The extraordinary efforts of
our school districts to foster an
environment of rising student
achievement are paying off with
tangible results," said Commis-
sioner Winn. "The improve-
ments made to our schools in
the past seven years will make a
difference in the lives of our


students throughout their aca-
demic and professional careers."

Let us think of education as
the means of developing our
greatest abilities, because in
each of us there is a private
hope and dream which, ful-
filled, can be translated into
benefit for everyone and greater
strength for our nation.
--John F. Kennedy
