SBell Guidance Counselor Dana Jones

s*-': Receives "Points Of Light" Award


By Anna Wild
No, I'm not going to revisit'
the tragic -events that made
September 11h a date that takes
each of us to our own place in
time. Instead I'm hoping to re-
mind. you of what happened af-
ter those tragic events. You see
for me I worked in a fairly large
city at the time and for almost
two weeks.after that tragic day I
did not get cut off, even once,
while driving. People left space
for cars to get into and out of
traffic and they used their sig-
nals. Everyone was friendlier
and gas was 99 cents for almost
a week (I really miss that!). For
the first time in my life I experi-
enced the closest thing to south-
ern hospitality in the "city." '
Now "southern hospitality" is
something many people here in
Gilchrist County may take for
granted and I'm not sure you
recognize it. I'm talking about
the simple act of waving at
someone you made eye contact
with while driving and I'm
talking about smiling and saying
"Hi!" to a complete stranger at
the supermarket or while taking
a walk.
For the first time in the lives
of many people they gave blood

Next Steps In
Statewide
Investigation
Into Skyrocketing

Attorney General Charlie
Crist has sent teams of investi-
gators and sworn law enforce-
ment personnel from his office
to locations throughout Florida,
including Miami, Ft. Lauder-
dale, West Palm Beach, Jack-


or went to church. There was
an outpouring of giving what-
ever was needed to help those
that were directly affected by
the tragedy. And the one thing I
remember most fondly was the
flags. You could not go any-
where without seeing an Ameri-
can Flag waving off of homes,
businesses, cars, even bicycles.
Flags came in unique new
forms. You could attach a flag
to your window or stick a mag-
netic flag on the side of your
car. For the first time in my life
I found it impossible to run out
to a hardware store or depart-
ment store and just buy an
American Flag. The demand
was so great that the manufac-
turers tculd not keep up.
Slowly %we all bought our flags
and displayed them with pride.
But did you replace your flag
with a new one once the edges
began to fray? Did you replace
your magnetic flag once the
colors began to fade? I don't
see as many flags anymore and
that bothers me. I guess for
many people once they had ful-
filled their initial need to show,
their patriotism and care they
felt satisfied and %\ent on doing
as they had always done. They
did not give blood any more;


sonville, Ft. Myers. Orlando.
Tampa, St. Petersburg, Talla-
hassee and Pensacola. The
teams will be looking into com-
plaints of price gouging on the
price of gasoline. Crist said in-
vestigators will be looking to
determine whether the rapid rise
of gas prices meets the legal
definition of gouging, and
vowed to prosecute any viola-
tions of the law.

tions were given because they
had already given. I know first-
hand the driving skills went
back to the way they had been,
and fewer people said "Hi!"
along the street. .Why? What
changed in the weeks and
months after the tragedy that
made the act of giving, caring
and showing our pride in being
Americans less important?
My hope is that this Septem-
ber 11th as you see all the spe-
cials on TV about the events
Four years ago perhaps you will
go out and buy a new flag and
display it with pride again. If
you're flying a flag that's frayed
or faded perhaps C- u w ill re-
place it. And if you see that
Bloodmobile. manbe this time
you will take 30 minutes out of
your day and give a real dona-
tion from the heart. After all,
being an American is not just
the flag, it's the attitude and the
action you take everyday, not
just when the big tragedies hap-
pen.
To remember the past is not
to relive it daily but rather to
learn from what happened and
make better choices in the fu-
ture.

skyrocketing gas prices in the
days since. Hurricane Katrina

Longtime Bell teacher and
Guidance Counselor Dana Jones
was presented a very special
award at Tuesday's School
Board Meeting. Ms. Jones was
awarded the Points of Light
Award. This award is
administered by the Volunteer
Florida Foundation and
sponsored by Royal Caribbean
International and Celebrity
Cruise Lines. Only one award is
given weekly to a Florida
resident or. organization
demonstrating exemplary
service to the community. The
award is presented after a panel
of judges unanimously agrees
that the recipient has gone
above and beyond in their area
of volunteerism.
In the letter that Ms. Jones
received notifying her that she
had. won the Points of Light
Award, the Governor of the
State of Florida Jeb Bush wrote,
"The volunteer time you give to
the State of Florida, and
especially your community,
enhances the lives of many and
sets a fine example of the
.important conribtimons each
and every citizens of our state
can make. In addition to
receiving the award certificate, I
hope you will join me on
October 18th for the Points of
Light Awards reception at miy
home."
Ms. Jones is the Bell Middle
School Guidance Counselor and
also the ESE Guidance
Counselor. She told the school
board that she felt especially
blessed to work for a school
system where everyone is
compassionate and caring. She
later told the Journal, "I feel
like I'm very unworthy of this
award. God has put me in a job
where He allows me to help
people. A job where I can help
people- who have needs." She
went on to say that as she enters
homes of students, who are for
whatever reason schooled at
home, she is made aware of
needs of ind iidual families and
students. She admittedly has
few resources of her own but
knows a great deal about how to
find needed items and special

The Rescue Of Mississippi

Residents After Hurricane

Katrina Tests Florida Wildlife

Conservation Officers' Ingenuity


Ingenuity was the challenge
Thursday during a rescue by
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officers and members of the
Mississippi Marine Patrol and
the Florida National Guard.
According to FWC Officer
Andy Maltais from the Jackson-
ville Field Office, the rescue in-
volved a 500-pound storm vic-
tim, a National Guard "deuce-
and-a-half" (a 2.5-ton truck) and
lots of manpower.
"We began our water patrol
with the Mississippi Marine Pa-
trol at about 9:00 a.m., going
through bayous and choked-off
waterways. We saw a flare, but
because of the conditions, we
couldn't reach the people who


had fired it off," Maltais said.
"There was a bulldozer
clearing the road in the area and
we managed to get up to the lo-
cation by sighting smoke from a
small fire. When we got there,
we found two-men on an in-
shore shrimp boat backed up in
a small canal," he said.
Officers found the boat in
Bratts Bayou off the Jordan
River near Henderson Point.
This bayou is between Gulfport,
Mississippi and Bay St. Louis,
Louisiana.
Other FWC officers on the
scene were Officers Tony
Wright, Craig Maguire, Brad
Givens and Investigator Paul
Graham, all from the Jackson-
ville Field Office.


"George Reed was in the
boat. He weighed about 500
pounds and was not ambulatory.
He was in bad shape. He was
conscious and extremely glad to
see us," Maltais said. "The big
problem we faced was how to
get him to a medical facility."
Emergency services had reached
the area but were unable to
transport Reed.
"Our helicopter flew over but
also was unable ,to rescue the
man," Maltais said. "We ended
up getting a deuce-and-a-half
from the Florida National Guard
back there. We constructed a
litter from a door and some
four-by-four lumber. We ma-
neuvered Mr. Reed onto the lit-

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The national media appears
to be having a field day once
again in their reporting of the
devastation and destruction the
areas .of southern Alabama,
Mississippi and Louisiana expe-
rienced when Hurricane Katrina
went ashore east of New Or-
leans on Monday, August 29,
2005.
From time to time I hear talk
radio playing when I walk into a
room. One day last week I
heard by way of the radio that
people in New Orleans v anted
to fire all of the employees in
the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency. The media
also reported that 100,000 peo-
ple were left in New Orleans
unable to leave. I think these
are the residents that felt the
greatest impact from being iso-
lated in a building unable, to
evacuate. -
The greatest problem that I
have with this entire situation is
the lack of cooperation that
people have as they wait for the
services to be provided. It is
verN difficult to ha\e patience
when Nou have children that
can't be fed and you have fam-
ily members that need medical


care. These are the people that
really should have been evacu-
ated first. .
Law enforcement is also
trying to do theirjob and help
people evacuate as well as pro-
viding assistance to the general
public. When you have a situa-
tion where a law enforcement
officer is unable to provide as-
sistance because a crime is, oc-
curring involving looting, the
officer should just deal with the
looters.
I am not a meteorologist or
someone that has tracked and
studied hurricanes over the last
30 years; but I do realize when a
Category 5 storm is threatening
a coastal community, it is time
to lea\e. There is nothing that
is left inside a standing structure
that is worth losing your life
over. I have seen the power that
water has when it is involved in
a storm surge. I can't imagine
just how bad it would be if it
were 20 to 30 feet high coming
in at one time with a 150 mile
per hour \;ind pushing it.: .
In 2004 when North Central
Florida experienced two tropical
storms %within a month's time,
there were problems and a
shortage of organization fol-
low ing the first storm. After the
people began to work with
FEMA and the state and local
authorities providing the many

necessities that were needed,
people received help and began
to get their lives back together.
I hase ne\er experienced
anything'close to the devasta-
tion thai hit the Mobile, Biloxi
and New Orleans areas. But, if
I could get out of the area be-
fore a storm like this hits, I,
would load all of my family and
leave.
There are thousands of v61-
unteers working with the Red
Cross, Salvation Army,: South-
ern Baptists, and many others,.
trying to provide assistance to
these residents of this tri-state
area. This will be a long-term
process as people try to adjust
and learn to do without loved
ones as well as homes and other
material possessions. People of
that area will remember Hurri-
cane Katrina for many genera-
tions to come.

You are invited to a GOSPEL MEETING be-
ginning Sunday at the Trenton Church of Christ,
502 NE 7th Street, Trenton. The church is located
next to the Ayers Health and Rehabilitation Cen-
ter. We have invited Harry Pickup, Jr. to preach a
series of lessons from the word of God. A GOS-
PEL MEETING is a time of REVIVAL for'those
who enjoy an honest study of the Bible. Nothing
is presented but the simple truth of what can be
found in the pages of God's word.
Can we understand the Bible together? Many
feel that the Bible is hard to understand and the
reason for different beliefs is the Bible is too dif-
ficult to read and comprehend. We challenge that
thought in believing that honest people can come
to agreement on what the Bible says. The apostle
Paul wrote in Ephesians 3:3-4, "How that by reve-
lation he made known unto me the mystery; as I
wrote afore in few words; whereby, when ye read,
ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery
of Christ." The apostle shows the 'simple manner
the word of God is revealed to man. He wrote
down what was revealed and he then encouraged
:his listeners to read what he had written down.
His conclusion was they could understand what
he had written down.
Our aim during this meeting or revival is to ask
two things of you: (1) Bring your Bible and your
family; (2) Open your Bible and study with us as
we unfold the mind of God from His word. When
you visit you will find a warm welcome and en-;
couragement to study the word of God. Many
churches spend a lot of time entertaining the audi-
ence with concerts, plays and such like with little
or no emphasis upon learning what the Bible

O things in life that I truly love to
do. I love to go searching for
antiques, especially old silver
-- and table linens and an occa-
sional piece of glassware. In the
i spring I become an avid gar-
o ff dener and as winter winds down
each year, I just can't wait to get
i outside and dig in the dirt. Then
about the middle of July I give
L up the gardening and head in-
Sside. It's just way too hot out
SZ there in the yard. The past three
or four years I've been able to
devote more time to quilting,
another one of my passions..
Antiques, gardening and quilt-
ing are all.fine and fairly.harm-
S less hobbies; that is unless I get
S a little carried away adding to
Smy fabric stash..
There is without a doubt one
() endeavor which I am most pas-
sionate about above all others
and that is food. I love to cook
and I love to eat. I'm happiest
while shopping for ingredients
Sfor a new recipe or popping the
E heads off shrimp fresh from the
I boat and thinking all the while
S how good they will be when
They are all cooked up.
u Although I have no formal
S, training in the.kitchen I have a
.E passion for food that I'm not
even going to try to deny. I've
spent Nears in the kitchen, at the
0 elbow of many great cooks like
my grandmother. Idell Smith
SBeauchamp who was a Levy
County native. John's mother,
Mary Thompson Ayers who
was a native of Dixie County,
Swas also a great influence on
S my cooking ability. She was a
* great Southern cook who, like-
my grandmother, had the gift of

I I don't really apologize for

a able to write a meaningful col-
t ujnn abop.t, Southern food fro m
throughout the South and the
S kind we hae enjoyed right here

erations. Along the way I plan

teaches. We offer onlh an honest study of the
word of God.
Have you hungered for the simple teaching of
the Bible? Many.people are. finding the veneer of
religion today unfulfilling as there is no Bible
teaching. At every service of the Trenton Church
of Christ, we open the Bible and study from it. We
seek to learn more and more with each occasion
of our gathering both public and private. You are
hungering for the truth of God's word! We do not
suppose to know all the answers but only the an-
swers as we can find them together in the word of
God. The wonderful power of God's message is
that we study together and learn together and
grow together in the grace and knowledge of the
'Lord (2 Peter 3:18).
This GOSPEL MEETING is an opportunity for
you to learn more about the Church of Christ at
Trenton. We hold the truth of God as the founda-
tion of what we do and why we do what we do.
Bring your Bible, your family and your hunger to
learn about God's word. You will be happily sur-
prised at how refreshing it is to study the Bible
once again. "For I am not ashamed of the gospel
of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation
to every one that believeth" (Romans 1:16)

grandmother Paul used the very
same recipe for sour cream
pound cake. By the way did I
mention that I'm a big Paula
Deen fan. She has a cooking
show on the Food Network
that's wonderful and she is
about as southern as can be.
(Oops off chasing rabbits, I'll
save Paula for another week).
Shannie always had a cake on
her kitchen counter when com-
pany or family showed up to
visit at her home in Chiefland.
She had that old-fashioned
Southern hospitality thing going
on and just plain didn't like to
be caught without something to
offer those who visited. It was
truly hard to leave her home
without eating some form of
cake, she expressed love
through food. More times than
not she had baked a sour cream
pound cake with her signature
pink swirl running through the
middle. I remember asking her
as a child why she always added
the pink swirl. Her answer was
simple, "Because my momma
did."
Friday night I baked Shannie
and Kathy Weaver's sour cream
pound cake recipe. Saturday
morning, I baked MeMa Ayers'
recipe. After the entire family
tasted both, it was pretty much a
toss up ,at our house, we liked
them both. J. said he liked Me-
Ma's best because of the
crunchy stuff on top.
A few years after my grand-
mother passed away my sister-
in-law IbriJone Beauchamp
showed. up at a family event
with a wonderful sour cream
pound cake. That 'cake has
made her our family's pound.
cake baker. After talking to,
IbriJone about .hr recipe I
found out that it took her many
pound cakes to perfect her rec-
ipe. She has mixed the two.
cakes that follow and came up
Smith her own recipe.-Hers is;
,ery similar to Me.-Mas. recipe.
but she uses cake flour and adds
1/2 teaspoon of salt. If we are
lucky she vill roast pecan in
butter and then add them to the
cake batter before baking.: Man
that butter pecan sour cream
pound cake is to die for.

Me-Ma's Sour Cream
Pound Cake
2 sticks of butter (salted)
3 cups sugar
1 cup sour cream
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon soda
6 eggs
,1/2 teaspoon pure vanillaa
1/2 teaspoon purelemon extract
Preheat oven to 325, degrees.
Cream butter and sugar to-
gether; add eggs one at a time
beating well after each. Mix
soda to sour cream, then add
flour to creamed mixture about
a 1/2 cup at a time alternating
with sour cream mixture. Begin
and end with flour. Then add
vanilla and lemon extracts.
Quickly pour batter in greased


and floured Bundt pan. Bake for
approximately 1 hour and 15
minutes. (It took a little longer
in my oven). Cool in pan about
10 minutes before bumping the
cake onto the plate.

Shannie's Sour Cream
Pound Cake
2 sticks of real butter
1/2 cup Crisco shorting
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups cake flour (sift before
measuring)
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup whole milk
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon lemon extract
Cream butter, sugar and.
Crisco well. Make sure that
sugar is beaten in and creamed
together well, this takes a while.
Beat in eggs, one at a time. Set
aside. Measure sifted flour and
add baking powder and sift
again. Set aside. Mix milk and
sour cream in another bowl
separately. Set aside. Starting
with flour mixture first, alter-
nate adding milk/sour cream
mixture to creamed/sugar butter
mixture. End with flour mixture:
Add lemon extract and put into
greased and floured tube pan.
Bake at 300 degrees for 1 hour
and 15 minutes. Do not open
oven door until time is com-
plete. You may have to bake it a
while longer. Cool in pan 10
minutes then put on cake plate.

Cooking tips: Always re-
member to let butter, eggs, sour
cream and milk set out until it,
reaches room temperature be-
fore beginning any cake. I had a
note on the back of Shannie's
recipe that said, "Move rack
lower in oven." I did move my
rack down on second cake and it
did bake more evenly. Also
when she baked pound cake her
pink swirl inside was made by
taking about a cup of batter
from mixing bowl and adding a
couple drops of red food color-
ing. She would fill the pan half
full of batter, next dribble the
cup ofpink batter into the pan,
then fill the pan with the rest of
batter: Just before baking she
would run a knife in a swirling
motion through the batter. Once.
the cake is cut you will have
that pretty pink swirl inside
each slie. lbtaJore~'aid tha ~i
.)ou beat the eg Pyhites sepa-
ratel'y and fold tohem into Te
batter at the end the cake will
have a finer creamer texture.
Lawdy, this was long. Next
week I promise to shorten it up
a bit.

There are risks and costs to a
program of action. But they are
far less than the long-range risks
and costs of comfortable inac-
tion.

SOn Sunday, August 28th at
1:00 p.m., the Literacy Program
at .Three Rivers Regional Li-
brary System hosted a program
at the Gilchrist County Public
Library to benefit the area His-
panic community. Orlando At-
torney Henry Lim presented in-
formation about immigration
law (Leyes de Migracion) to
225 adult attendees. When it
was apparent that the small
community room at the library
would not hold the number of
participants who arrived, the


law to the attendees of the

pastor of neighboring Trenton
Church of God, Dewayne Bow-
doin, graciously offered the use
of the church and the meeting
was moved there.
Mr. Lim discussed issues
such as obtaining a driver's li-
cense or work permit and the
process required to become a
legal resident of the United
States or secure an individual
tax identification number for
personal income taxes. Mr. Lim
also talked about what to expect
when consulting an attorney for
legal issues regarding citizen-
ship and immigration law.

Order without liberty and lib-
erty without order are equally

f LCCC Partners With
SLake City Medical
SCenter For New RN
Program
Lake City Community Col-
lege has partnered with Lake
City Medical Center to design a
new fast track bridge program
that allows licensed practical
nurses to keep their day jobs
e while achieving an associate in
science nursing degree. The
new bridge program is designed
,i to be completed in 12 months
l by attending classes two eve-
- nings a week and clinical rota-
t tions one day per week.
Z To gain admission to the pro-
gram there are at least ten en-
e trance requirements that must be'
Smet \ith two of the most im-
r portant being: 1) working as an
- LPN for a minimum of 2,000
hours within the past five years,
s and 2) having a GPA of 3.0 on
t prerequisites with a minimum of
a C in each course. The dead,
Line for application is September
- 15, 2005.
The program is designed to
- help alleviate the health care in-
, dustry's growing need for more
t registered nurses.. There are
p many qualified licensed practi-
t cal nurses (LPN) in North
SFlorida who are interested in
. advancing their careers to be-
come registered nurses iRNi.
, They are tilling to'return to
e college to achieve this goal, yet
r they often have to work full
time to support their families.
S 'The fast track program \ ill pro-
t vide access to educational op-
portunities for this group of
LPNs, making more registered
nurses available in North Flor-
ida as the LPNs mowe into their
new role of RN.
Robbie Carson, director of
nursing programs at LCCC. said
S"Lake Cit) Medical Center
(LCMC) has played a large role
in helping make this dream a re-
rality for LCCC's nursing pro-
gram. Hospital Corporation of
America (HCA), the parent
company of Lake City Medical-
Center, has generously donated
the funds for instructor's sala-
ries for two years," an amount
in excess of $130,000.
Peggy Rile), chief nursing of-
ficer for LCMC, said that. "Part
of HCA's mission is to partner
\with their local communities to
create opportunities to meet the
health care needs of that com-
munity." While Riley said they
know some of the program's
graduates will go to other hos-
pitals in Florida, this is still in
line with their mission to serve
their communities with quality
health care.
In .addition, just. last year
LCMC provided the college
w ith a "human patient simula-
tor" ("SimMan") at a cost'of
approximately $42,000 to use in
the classroom to teach their
nursing students. This simulator.
will be a tremendous asset to the
program.
: LCMC selected two students
from the current class to receive
full registered nursing scholar-
ships. Riley stated that they re-
ceived 16 applications this year
and that it was very difficult to
choose just two because, "They
were all excellent candidates for
the scholarships."
There are a number of pro-
grams in the area that provide
the cross-over bridge, but many


of those programs require more
in-class time and take at least
15-18 months to complete. The
college feels that the new pro-
grams will complement the ex-
isting programs and offer more
upward mobility opportunities
for the LPNs.
For a complete packet of in-
formation detailing all the nec-
essary requirements for entrance
into this program, call Jan Fer-
ris, senior staff assistant for the
academy of allied health pro-
grams at (386) 754-4404 or e-
.mail ferrisj @lakecitycc.edu.

rU


Just Ask Me!
Here you are; the first day of
classes at Lake City Community
College (LCCC) and don't
know where you are going.
Problem solved! The LCCC
grounds maintenance crew Carl
Smith, Tony Smith and Annika
Christensen, had a great idea to
make it easier for new students
to be pointed in the right direc-
tion. Since all three of the
grounds employees are FACC
(Florida Association of Com-
munity Colleges) members, Carl
Smith made some signs which
read, "Need Help! Ask
Me....FACC member" and at-
tached them to the back of their
carts and also carried a supply
of campus maps showing all
buildings.
As they were "manicuring. '
the campus, they also were
helpful in. directing LCCC stu-
dents for the first three days of
new classes to the correct
building so they could "beat the
bell."
This is just another way that
FACC points the way, not only
in community service, but
service' to LCCC's students
needing that initial step of
friendship as they enter a new
phase of their life as a student.

Bell Elementary
School Collecting
Water For Storm
Victims
The Bell Elementary School
is collecting water for the relief
of storm damaged areas from
Katrina. They are accepting
unopened bottles, gallons, etc.,
anything that people are willing
to donate. Every few days the
water will be taken to a dona-
tion sight for delivery to the
needed areas.
Water is one of the most
needed items at this time. Not
only for those who have lost so
much, but for those who are on
their way to help. Whether it is
one bottle or six, every little bit
will help.
There are drop off points at
Dr. Cox's dental office in
Trenton and at the Bell Ele-
mentary School office. Collec-
tions will run for a couple
weeks.
Let's all try to make a differ-
ence by doing this one small act
of kindness.
Thank you for your dona-
tions.

LifeSouth's "Feed
The Need" Summer
Drives Successful
The summer months are the
most difficult for LifeSouth
Community Blood Centers to
maintain an adequate blood
supply. However, this past
summer their Civitan Region
was able to drastically increase
their resources as local restau-
rants in the area hosted numer-
ous "Feed the Need" blood
drives between Friday, June
10", and Saturday, July 23d.
The drives brought in a total
of 225 donors, just shy of
LifeSouth's goal of 239. Res-
taurants in the cities of
Gainesville, Alachua, Keystone
.Heights, Starke, Chiefland, and
Fanning Springs and Bell were
involved. Overall, 30 eateries
participated, and each provided
.something special to their do-
nors, in addition to the recogni-
tion item and cholesterol
screening given by LifeSouth.
"We are very thankful for
each establishment's contribu-
tion," said LifeSouth's District
Director Carolyn Quintanilla.
"They all offered different cou-
pons that were redeemable for a
food item after giving blood,
and we think that really assisted
in working towards our targeted
number of donors. These drives,
were a huge success."
All donors will be entered in
a drawing to win a new Pontiac
G6 from Wade' Raulerson
Pontiac. Potential winners must
be 18 years of'age and are re-
sponsible for paying tax, tag and
.title fees.
For more information about
becoming a blood donor, please
contact LifeSouth at (352) 334-
1000 or visit wwv. .lifesouth.org.
Donors must be at least 17 years
old, weigh 110 pounds or more,
and have a valid photo I.D.
LifeSouth is the sole blood
supplier for 39 medical facilities
in 17 counties in North Central
Florida including Shands at UF,
the VA Medical Center, and
North Florida Regional Medical
Center. LifeSouth is a nonprofit.
volunteer blood center supply-
ing more than 110 medical cen-
-ters in Florida. Alabama and
Georgia.

GREETINGS
This is a-picture of a black-

youngsters from the Wichita

adorable? It's a rather dark
picture so I'm hoping it prints
alright.

"Raise porcupines," said the
receptionist, as she took his
check.

Duck decoys, fishing rods,
boots outdoor gear of all
kinds was piled high in the ga-
rage. One day I found my wife
staring at the mess. "I hope I
die first, so I don't have to get
rid of all this," she sighed.
"Look on the bright side," I
suggested. "If I go first, you
can put an ad in the paper.
When all the men come by to
check out the stuff, you can pick
out a replacement for me."
Still staring at the pile, she
said, "Nah. He wouldn't be my
type."

Torrential rainstorms were
knocking down power lines all
over town. That .meant, as a
customer service rep for the
electric company, I was dis-
patching repairmen right and
left.
When one lineman called a
customer to get her exact ad-
dress, he was told, "I'm at Post
Office Box 99."
The weary lineman replied,
"Ma'am, I'll be coming to you
in a truck, not an envelope."

One afternoon my mother
went shopping and returned a
few hours later with ten new
dresses.
"Ten!". Dad hollered. "What
could any woman possible. want
with ten new dresses?"
Mom replied in a calm voice:
"Ten new pairs of shoes.'

When it's a part of you
And a torch bums for others
Whose dreams did not come
true.
It hurts to lose a loved one
Whose flower never bloomed,
But dreams can be reborn
If by you they are assumed.
The flame of life may flicker
Or become mere residue,
But it cannot be extinguished
If it brightly bums in you.

Hurricane Katrina
Veterans And
Families Questions
And Answers
How do I find out about the
condition of a family member
who is a patient at a VA medical
center in the affected area?
At this time, that information
is not available. Please be as-
sured, however, that we are
taking the best possible care of
our patients, even.-at this diffi-
cult time.
I need to contact a family
member who works at a VA
medical center in the affected
area. How can I do so?
Unfortunately. we do not
hate an available methods to
assist you if you need to contact
an individual employee at this
time. .Our best suggestion is
that you use any communication
methods at your own disposal.
All VA employees who were
working at all our facilities at
the time of the hurricane are
currently safe and well.
What is the current status of
VA Medical Centers (VAMCs),
in areas affected by Hurricane
Katrina?
The New Orleans VAMC has
lost power, and patients are be-
ing evacuated to VAMCs in
Houston. Jackson, Shreveport
and Alexandria, Lousiana. The
Medical Center's Staff will be
evacuated once the patients
have been evacuated. The
Biloxi V.AMC is open, but it-
sustained sgnifican" d!r'ge
from do%% ned trees and broken
windows: The Gulfport VAMC
is completely closed. 'All pa-
tients ha% e been evacuated.
117lat is the status of VA out-
patient clinics in the hurricane
area?
All 'VA clinics along the Gulf
Coast, from Louisiana to Flor-
ida, are closed Information
about backup clinics \%ill be re-
leased soon. '
lill mnobtle' clinics be avail-
able for veterans?
The first mobile facilities \ ill
be delivered September 1st to
the Biloxi VAMC.
I am la VA patient. I need a
prescription refilled. What
should.l do ?
Call the nearest open VA
medical center, tell them your
prescription needs and explain
that you are unable to get a refill
prescription because of the hur-
ricane. Also, in order to receive
care, you will need to register at.
the new VAMC. Information
about patients evacuated from
the YA medical centers in New
Orleans and 'Gulfport can be
.obtained toll-free at t-800-507-
4571. The VA medical centers
in New Orleans and Gulfport,
Mississippi. both sustained ma-
jor storm damage. The Gulport
facility has been closed and the
one in New Orleans will be
closed after the last patients
have been transferred. Inpa-
tients .formerly at the Gulfport
VA Medical Center were trans-
fef'red. before the hurricane
struck to other VA medical
centers. VA officials are estab-
lishing procedures for family
members to locate inpatients
evacuated from the affected fa-
cilities. Officials are also final-
izing procedures for veterans

ceive benefits checks and pre-
scription drugs, and to ensure
that VA employees continue to
be paid.


member who, on the date of the
disabled ex-service member's
death, had been married to the
disabled ex-service member for
at least five years. The produc-
tion of a certificate of disability
from the U. S. Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) before
the property appraiser of the -
county wherein the surviving
spouse's property lies is prima
facie evidence of the fact that he
or she is entitled to the exemp-
tion. The certificate of disabil-
ity may be obtained by calling
the St. Petersburg VA Regional

AARP News
Those of us who. have been
following the news about the
catastrophic events unfolding
along the northern Gulf Coast
and in South Florida, along with
the sorrow we feel for those af-
fected by the horrific storm,
have to be thankful that the tri-
county area was spared.
President Geneva Cornwell is
one of the many locally who
have family members and
friends in the hardest hit areas.
We can only hope and pray that
any news they hear about their
loved ones will be reassuring.
Homes, businesses and jobs can
eventually be replaced but lives
cannot.
The next meeting of AARP
Chapter 2133 is scheduled for.
Tuesday, September 13th in the
Community Center in Trenton
starting at 10:30 a.m. Come
earlier to help set up if you are
willing to do so. We anticipate
a lively and interesting meeting.
Norman Conti, chair of the
Health Committee, is trying to
make sense of the new Medicare
program that is meant to cover
the full cost of prescription
drugs for those on Medicare. It
is an added cost and some peo-
ple on Medicaid or who already
have benefits through a supple-
mental insurance plan. mayfind
they will not benefit enough to
cover the cost. The plan does
not take effect until November
so there is time to do some
comparisons. An one who has
alreadN studied ;the proposed
plan should feel free rt speak
up.
One change in leadership that
will be noticed is that Harold&
Pope, who has for several years
chaired the Legislative Com-
mittee, asked President Corn-
well to relieve him of that re-
sponsibility due to ill health.
Mrs. Cornwell appointed Randy
Durden, one of our newer mem-
bers to head up this very im-
portant committee. Thank you
Randy. We thank Harold for
his dedicated service through
the years. Not all of us are able
or \ killing to read through all the
convoluted bills that come out
of the state and national legis-
lators try to make any sense of
their effect upon our daily lives.
We need all the help we can get
and appreciate people like Har-
old and RandN who can wade
through all the jargon and help
it to make sense to us.
We always have lively and
interesting meetings and leave
time to meet other members, es-
pecially at "eating meetings."
Bring a vegetable dish, salad. or
dessert. Ham will be provided
by board members. Also bring
a friend who may be interested
in joining our chapter. Treas-
urer Iris Roberts reminds us that
the membership cost is still only
$3.00 annually but they should
already be national members in
order to qualify.

This is a "Sailboat" quilt top pieced .many years ago.
Alice Eakes has several of these tops that we hope we can
help her get quilted.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, September 1, 2005
at the Levy County Quilt Mu-
seum. Only two more months
until the quilt show and every-
one is so busy getting ready.
Each week crafts are coming
in, but we would like for eve-
ryone to wait a little longer to
bring them in as we are getting
full in every way.
Christa Trehy has finished a
"Red on White" baby quilt and
we know it will be special for
.ears to come. She is making
a hooked rug that was donated
to us and she is to the half-way
mark. It will be a beautiful rug
and we may have to hang it on
the ceiling as we are running
out.of space on the walls.
Greg and five boys were out
Tuesday and got us looking


great again. The boys who
come out are so much help in-
side and out. They can do
much that needs doing and
sometimes it takes muscles
that I don't have.
We enjoyed having a couple
from Milton who came by and
enjoyed our museum as well as
our food. We also want to
thank Don and Mary Mac-
Donald from Waldo who do-
nated a beautiful Tybee Light-
house picture. It will be put up
somewhere.
Lunch was so good with
corn chowder, soy beans, three
dishes of spaghetti, vegetables,
salad, Jell-O salad, corn bread,
biscuits, coconut and peach
pie, cupcakes and so much
more. We had 20 members
and two guests.

able," said Commandant Harr
Hopood in his address to
members and visitors wvho at-
tended the ceremonN.
The home. built in 1861, has
no modern conveniences such


as indoor plumbing' and the
electrical wiring is old and ini-
Sadequate. He' said the league
needs construction materials and
paint to replace deteriorated
parts of the structure and to en-
hance its appearance.
The league detachment is al-
ready working to raise funds
with a drawing for a new shot-
gun, and donations will be
gratefully accepted. he said..
Nlarn Christians said the old
home housed seven generations
of the Hardee familN and she
believes the home has been
empty for about 20 )ears. "One
dao the rooms on the bottom
floor will serve as meeting
rooms for the league. the ladies
auxiliary and an office while the
: upstairs will be used for storage
in the immediate future." she
said. .


Hopwood said eventually two
of the upstairs will'become a
museum to honor war veterans
from all recent conflicts.
Cash donations can be serit to
the league's paymaster. Chris
Christians, 115 NE 112th Ave-
nue, Old Town, FL 32680. To.
make arrangements for dona-
tions of materials, call 352-262-
5643.
Christians said the league will
welcome any donation that will'
help them raise funds for the
project. "We will accept any
help we can get, even things we
can sell in a yard sale," she said.

Relentless Hurricane
Season Will Affect
Fish And Wildlife
Florida's fish and wildlife
may be in for a second assault
from Hurricane Katrina on the
Gulf coast, but Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) biologists say the
news Won't be all bad.
If the storm makes another
landfall in Florida, it is likely to
take a heavy toll on sea turtle
nests which already suffered a
massive setback in the beach
erosion caused by Hurricane
Dennis last month. However,
Katrina is a relatively compact
storm, and the damage should
be confined to a small area. In
addition, FWC biologists point
out that Florida's native species
have weathered hurricanes for
thousands of years, arid nature
has equipped them to recover.
Fortunately, shorebirds have
finished nesting for the season,
and the storm's effects on them
will be minimal.
A predictable result of hurri-
cane damage is that local offi-
cials and leaders will begin mo-
bilizing almost immediately
after the storm to launch beach
renourishment and clean-up op-
Serations..Because most activi-
ties iriv'Mi.ng-co'-strucrion and
use of vehicles and heavy
equipment are prohibited on
Florida's beaches without.
authorization from the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP.,, citizens and
local governments should con-
sult DEP before undertaking
,any clean-up activities on the
beach.
If any clean-up or repair ac-
tivities are approved under an
emergency authorization by the
state or local governments, sea
turtle biologist Dr. Robbin
Trindell said, the FWC will co-
ordinate reco ery projects to
prevent conflicts with endan-
gered species protection.
"Once the state has issued an
authorization for emergency re-
pairs, our office works closely
with other state and federal
agencies to ensure that Florida's
citizens can take actions neces-
sary to protect and to repair
their property without harming
threatened and endangered spe-
cies that are also trying to re-
,.cover from the storms," she
S. said.
SInformation on storm
damage and any emergency
authorizations is available on
the DEP Web site,
% \\ w.dep.state.fl.us/mainpage/e
m/default.htm.
Storms claim individual ani-
mals and destroy food and
shelter they need. In addition,
non-native' (and dangerous)
animals .may escape captivity,
and winds may scatter non-
* native plants. Fortunately, most
of Florida's native species are
adapted to recover from storms.
Some non-native species are
not, so hurricanes help control
their populations in the wild.
Fish populations may de-
crease when high winds stir up
upper and lower layers of water
in lakes, causing fatal oxygen
depletion, but again, fish popu-
lations can recover promptly
and naturally.
Although local flooding often
results from particularly wet
storms like Katrina, there is an
up side to the heavy rainfall the
storm would bring ashore.
"The rain would help re-,
charge the aquifer and raise
water levels in ponds and other
water bodies, and that would
improve conditions for wading
birds and certain other species,"
wildlife biologist Jim Rodgers
said.

Free Butterfly
Program In Cedar
Key September 10
J Akers Pence is a Ph. D can-
didate in entomology at the
University of Florida specializ-
ing in conservation of endan-
gered butterflies. He has done
field surveys of the federally
endangered Schaus swallowtail
and of the state endangered Mi-
ami blue at its last known col-
ony on Bahia Honda Key. At
the McGuire Center for Lepi-
doptera and Biodiversity, Flor-
ida Museum of Natural History,
Pence worked with Jaret Dan-
iels raising thousands of Miami
Blues for release in establishing
new colonies.
Pence will present his Power
Point and discoveries after a
five year field study of Swead-
ner's hairstreak, Mitoura gry-
neus sweadneri (Lycaenidae) in
north Florida. This endemic
species is very local, uncom-
mon, and never strays far from
its only larval host, southern


Red cedar. Prime habitat for
this beautiful green hairstreak is
found in gulf coast counties, in-
cluding sites in the Lower Su-
wannee National Wildlife Ref-
uge, Yankeetown, Steinhatchee
Falls Wildlife Management
Area, hunt clubs and timber
holdings. As sprawl develop-
ment, short-sighted manage-
ment practices and rising sea
level threaten the biodiversity of
the Nature coast the fate of
Sweadner's hairstreak and
myriad cedar associated species
is in our hands.
Friends of the Lower Suwan-
nee & Cedar Keys Wildlife
Refuges invite yoh to see and
hear J Akers Pence presentation,
Saturday September 10th at 2:30
p.m. at the Cedar Key Library
(downtown). Light refresh-
ments will be served. After-
ward enjoy wildlife observation
at Shell Mound, Dennis Creek
Trail, or the Refuge Loop Road
on County Road 347 as you
leave Cedar Key.

FWC Finds No Signs
Of C In FlFIa
Floridas deer erherdreveals no
signs of chronic wasting disease
(CWD) after three years of
testing for the fatal disease, ac-
cording to.the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC). The FWC tested
558 free-ranging deer during the
past year and more than 1,800
deer over the past three years,
and none tested positive for
CWD.
: CWD is a progressive, neu-
rological, debilitating disease
that has been detected in and af-
fects captive and wild herds-of
mule deer, white-tailed deer and
Rocky Mountain elk in several
Midwestern and western states.
It attacks the brain of infected
animals, causing them to be-
come emaciated,, display ab-
normal behavior and lose con-
trol of bodily functions. No
southeastern states, including
Florida, have been hit by the
lethal deer disease thus far.
This hunting season, the FWC
is again turning to sportsmen to
help monitor the state's deer
herd for CWD.
"We are asking hunters to re-
port any sightings 'of sickly or
scrawn -looking deer," Vander-
hoof said. "If you see .such a
deer, please'call toll-free (866)
CWD-WATCH (293-9282).
Wildlife biologists will re-
spond. and if necessary collect
deer tissue for testing. It's im-
portant to contact,us as soon as
possible, because CWD testing
must take place within 48 hours
of a deer's death to produce re-
liable results."
Clinical signs include exces-
sive salivation, and grinding of
teeth, increased drinking and
urination, dramatic loss of
weight and body condition, poor
hair coat, staggering and finally,
death. Behavioral changes, in-
cluding decreased interaction
with other animals, listlessness,


lowering of the head, blank fa-
.cial expression and repetitive
walking in set patterns may also
occur.
Wildlife experts have found
no evidence that CWD can be
transmitted to livestock or hu-
mans, but it is recommended to
avoid direct contact with any
deer, exhibiting signs of CWD
or one that has died from un-
known causes.
-More information on
CWD is available 'at
MyFWC.com/CWD. The web
site also provides links to hu-
man and wildlife health agen-
cies for more in-depth informa-
tion about the deadly disease.

ihat is a CM.4?
CMA stands for Comparative
Market Analysis. This should not
be confused wtth an appraisal. The
two may have similar results
,however; they are not the same.
- A licensed property appraiser
conducts ,an appraisal.. The
borrower usually pays for an
appraisal. This is what the bank
looks (or when they are
determining loan value., Banks
usually have specific Appraisers
that they use.
- A CMA, is simply a comparison
of your property to other properes
that have recently sold in your
area These properties are referred
to as "comps". Your property or
the property that is the subject of
the CMA is referred to as the
"subject"
-A good comp is one that has
similar acreage, similar in size,
construction, and should be within
5 miles to the subject property.
This is not always this easy, so the
person completing the CMA will
have to add or subtract features
that are different in order to obtain
a market value for your home.
- The CMA is a tool that Realtors"
use to determine a listing price for
a prospective seller. The same
report can also be used for a Buyer
to determine an offering price.
While it is better to use closed
sales in the CMA, sometimes using
current listings is also effective.:
- If you are considering selling a
piece of property, please feel free
to call me today for a free CMA.

Hurley's Waccasassa Plantation Features

Sporting Clays Range


By Anna Wild
Do you like to hunt for dove,
quail or rabbit? Was your last
hunting experience a little light
because you were a little off?
Do you enjoy target shooting
with a shotgun but.want a little
more of a challenge? If you an-
swered yes to any of these
questions you may want to
check out what's new at Hur-
ley's Waccasassa Plantation on
CR 138 in North Gilchrist
County. Just east of the main
entrance you will find their new
sporting clays range. They have
14 stations to test your skills
and allow you to have a great
time. The course was designed
by Florida's own Mike Bitt-
mann, World Champion Shooter
and on the Board of Directors of
the National Sporting Clays As-
sociation (NSCA). The range is
automated so an individual
shooter can go out with an
automatic counter/release box
which can be programmed for a
four second delay so you can
shoot' by yourself. Golf carts
are available for rent to make
your traveling from one stand to
the next easier, but you can
walk the course. And with tar-
gets at just 30 cents each your
arm will give out before your
pocket does.

kopf Cup Sporting Clays Tour-
nament. Hurley's Waccasassa
Plantation Sporting Clays plans
to have NSCA.Registered Tour-
naments and Charity Fundrais-
ers in the future. Tom Tatum
was happy to say they plan to
add a pistol range and rifle
range soon.
My sisters and I had pur-
chased our father a gift certifi-
cate for the new sporting clays
range for a Father's Day gift
and I \%anted to tag along when
he went to shoot. He and I had
never shot at a real sporting
clays range, all we had ever
-done was shoot using one of
those clay launchers that pretty
much put the target in the same
place at the same speed every
time. Well, I must say the real
deal is the way to go. Three of
us were shooting, my brother in
law, Eugene, also received a gift
certificate and had never shot at
a range like this. All of us had a
great time. The guys picked up
the hang of how far to lead the
,target \erN quickly, and I was
impressed. I took a little longer,
but I refused to be, defeated.
After Tom Tatum helped me
learn ho'w far to lead the target I
was shooting with about 50 per-
cent accuracy, which I don't
think \(as too bad for m\ first
time. But b. the end of our

shooting experience I could feel
the bruise coming up on my
shoulder. The three of us did
not keep score (this time) so it's
hard to say who shot better dad
or Eugene. Both of them had
complained about not getting as
many dove at their last hunts so
maybe this will improve their
odds this fall.
If you would like to check out
Hurley's Waccasassa Planta-
tion's Sporting Clays Range
check out their website at
www.wplantation.com. You
can also reach Tom Tatum,
Shooting Manager & Instructor,
at (386) 454-0655 or (813) 924-
3150. Tom will be happy to
show you the range and how
everything works. All shooters
must sign a shooting waiver and
range rules must be followed at
all times. If you enjoy shooting
sports I hope you will try out
the new sporting clay's range,
it's a great way to have fun and
enjoy the great outdoors.

have died and she was able to
minister to the families' needs
and the other students who were
mourning the loss of fellow
students. Ms. Jones said many
of the parents and families of
students she has helped through
the years wrote letters in
support of her to the Points of
Light Foundation and she
appreciated their efforts on her
behalf.
During the illness of Bell
student Caitlin Huggins, Ms.
Jones helped her acquire her
high school diploma and
graduate this past September.
Caitlin passed away in January.
When speaking of Caitlin Ms.
Jones said, "She had such a
strong, never wavering faith in
God. She was a blessing to me,
I miss her so much."
The following poem was
read at Caitlin's funeral in
Tampa. Ms. Jones said that she
tries to live so her "Dash"
represents a life of meaning by
helping and impacting others.
The Dash
By Lynne Bolduc
I read of a man who stood to
speak at the funeral of a friend.
He referred to the dates on her
tombstone from the begin-
ning... to the end.
He noted that first came the
date of her birth and spoke of
the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most
of all was the dash between the
years.
For that dash represents all
the time that she spent alive on
earth...And now only those who
loved her know what that little
line is worth.
For it matters not, how much
we own; the cars...the
house...the cash. What matters
is how we live and love and
how we spend our dash.
So think about this long and
hard...are there things you'd
like to change? For you never
know how much time is left.
(You could be at "dash mid-
range").
If we could just slow down
enough to consider what's true
and real, and always try to un-
derstand the way other people
feel.
And be less quick to anger,
and show appreciation more.
And love the people in our lives
like % e'"ve never loved before.
If we treat each other with r'-
spdct, arid miio8t b fteri ar a
smile...Remembering that this
special dash might only last a
while.
So, when your eulogy's being
read with your life's actions to
rehash...Would you be proud of
the things they say about how
you spent your dash?

ter and got him into the truck.
He was then transported to a
hospital.'"
Maltais said a younger man
who was with Reed (officers did.
not get his name), was the one
who had fired off the flare.
"These two men had banded
together, found this shrimp boat
and rode out the storm,". Maltais
said. "The younger man had
lost his wife and son and wanted
help trying to locate them. We
walked through the destroyed
subdivision, looking for other
survivors. We didn't find his
family, but we did locate the
owner of the shrimp boat who
was amazed his boat and these
two men had made it through
the storm."
According to Maltais, the
devastation of the area is unbe-
lievable.
"We were in a subdivision of
about 100 houses. There was
nothing left. Three-story houses
have been reduced to sticks," he
said. "The storm surge here
must have. been tremendous.
You can see where the bark was
blasted off the trees from the
surge. I can't begin to describe
the scene or the smell. There
are carcasses of dead fish and
other animals littering the area.
There's nothing left."
Maltais told of another sur-
vival story.
"There was a group of four
Vietnamese shrimpers who
wanted to save their boat and
decided to ride out the storm in
it. It got so bad that they ended
up climbing a 90-foot pine tree
and lashing themselves at about
60 feet. They managed to ride
out the storm," Maltais said. "I
was amazed. I saw the rope
burns on their bodies and then
saw the tree ....It looked like an
apple core. If the wind had
4, been much more fierce, they
wouldn't have made it." Mal-
tais said the shrimp boat made it
through the storm also.


Living conditions for FWC's
109 officers, and other person-
nel in the rescue operation have
been described as "primitive."
Maltais laughed, saying, "That's
putting it in a good light. We're
living out of our trucks. How-
ever, our morale is great. In
fact, my squad has just volun-
teered to stay here for another
week."
The squad consists of Lt.
Gary Klein, officers Harold
Barry, Givens, Maltais, Wright,
Maguire and Graham. Capt.
John Burton, from the Crystal
River Field Office, is leading
the detail.
"I worked the detail in
Pensacola after Hurricane Ivan
last year. But this is even
worse," Maltais said. "I'm just
glad to be here to be able to help
out."

Attorney General
To Investigate High
Gas Prices
(Continued from Page One)
are being tacked onto consum-
ers' fuel costs, then it is our
duty to investigate," said Crist.
"Floridians understood that
damage from Hurricane Katrina
would lead to some disruptions
in fuel supply and some cost in-
creases, but these spikes lead to
legitimate questions that must
be answered. Gouging will not
be tolerated."
Crist has instructed Attorney
General personnel to investigate
specific complaints and ask the
following questions:
* What was the retail price of
gasoline at the station on
August 23rd (the date before
a state of emergency was de-
clared)?
When did the retailer pur-
chase' the gasoline currently
on sale from the distributor,
and what retail price was be-
ing charged on that date?
* What is the current sales price
.today?
From whom did the retailer
purchase the most recent
shipment of fuel that is' being
sold today?
This information will be used
to compile a complete picture of
fuel costs that will trace the ori-
gins, of the rapid increases. If
price gouging is found to have
occurred, a civil lawsuit can be
brought under Florida's Pri e
Gouging Law.
As part of the investigation,
the Attorney General subpoe-
naed two gasoline distributors
earlier this week seeking re-
cords of their deliveries into
Florida: Those companies are
Colonial Oil Industries and
rMurph) Oil USA.
In July; the Attorney General
subpoenaed two other gas dis-
tributors;,'Motiva Enterprises (a
subsidiary of Royal Dutch
Shell) and Tate Oil Company,
following Hurricane Dennis.
