Trenton Rotary Puts Service

Above Self To Help Katrina

Victims Through Red Cross'


Gilchrist Sheriff Demands County

Commission To Return Firing Range To

Sheriff's Jurisdiction


By Anna Wild
On Monday, September 12,
2005, the Trenton Rotary Club
had a special guest. Jackie
Lavinder, Director of Health
and Safety with the American
Red Cross, spoke to the Rotary
members about the local North
Central Florida Chapter in
Gainesville and the National
Red Cross. Locally there are
eight counties which are served
by the North Central Florida
Chapter of the Red Cross in
Gainesville. The local Red
Cross offers assistance for sin-
gle family fires, flooding, sink-
holes, etc. They offer help to
anyone, regardless of income,
and right now their efforts are
being funneled into the local
needs which arise and the enor-
mous need created by Hurricane
Katrina.
As of Thursday, September
8th, the local chapter of the Red
Cross had 200 cases in process;
this is a little higher than ex-
pected because we now, have
some Katrina evacuees in North
Central Florida. Their chapter
also collected $250,000 in hur-
ricane relief funds. Locally we
have about 444 volunteers; the
hurricane brought about 365
new volunteers to the local Red.

President, Jackie Lavinder, Health and Safety Director
with the American Red Cross, and Ted Burt who were
very proud of the "Service Above Self" shown at
Monday's meeting.


Cross Chapter to help in relief
efforts.
What does the Red.Cross do
for the victims? The Red Cross
helps them get on their feet by
giving those in need funds to
purchase clothing and necessary
items to help them feel a little
more normal. Then the Red .
"Cross will get the victims in


touch with various organiza-
tions which help with perma-
nent housing, jobs, medical
needs and financial needs.
There are many groups de-
pending on the circumstances.
The Red Cross is just the first
step in rebuilding their lives. In

Character Council's Personality

For September Is

'Samantha Jo Bishop


By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County Sheriff
David P. Turner appeared be-
fore the Gilchrist County Com-
mission on Thursday, Septem-
ber 8' requesting that the board
return the' firing range to the
sheriff's jurisdiction. The sher-
iff was accompanied by his
chief deputy and two dispatch
supervisors in the meeting.
Sheriff Turner, the chief law
enforcement officer in Gilchrist
County, told the four-member
board that the law enforcement
firing range was purchased and
constructed with funds from the
Federal Law Enforcement Drug
Program. He went into detail to
explain that the County Com-
mission could not sell or ex-
change this property to the Gil-
christ County School District
because the firing range was
built to be used for law en-
forcement training purposes.
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission, for several months, has
been negotiating an agreement
to exchange a parcel of land
with the Gilchrist County
School District. The school
district has been negotiating a
proposed agreement with Lake
City Community College to
construct a satellite campus on
21 acres of property between
Trenton and Bell. The campus
is being considered to be con-
structed where the Central
Campus (alternative school) was
previously located near the FFA
alumni rodeo facility.


Sheriff Turner reminded the
County Commission that in
1997, when the firing range was
constructed, the board passed a
resolution supporting the firing
range and that they approved the
revenues from the Federal Drug
Task Force Program be used to
construct the law enforcement
training facility.
Sheriff Turner explained to
the board that the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office uses
this facility for training and the
certification of law enforcement
officers in the sheriff's depart-
ment. He further explained that
the Florida Highway Patrol, the
Florida Wildlife Conservation
Commission, and other law en-
forcement agencies in neigh-
boring counties utilize this fa-
cility for training.
"I am in hopes when the
board does take action involving
the firing range, that the Com-
mission would do the research
to keep Gilchrist County from
being involved in litigation over
the firing range." Sheriff Turner
explained to the board.
On September 6th, Sheriff
Turner submitted a letter to Gil-
christ County Commission
Chairman Mitchell Gentry con-
cerning the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office Firing Range.
The letter reads as follows.
"I am writing to you in re-
gards to my personal conversa-
tion with you in reference to
your attempt to transfer the fir-
ing range along with property


you possess to the Gilchrist
County. School Board. As I
stated to each of you, the firing
range was not part of the land
transfer between us, and that the
firing range still was retained by
my office as per Department of
Treasury equitable sharing
guidelines.

I received information that
date that you however pro-
ceeded and did in fact give
away the firing range to the
school board. I first would re-
mind you again, that the range
was NOT part of the property
transfer and remind you that if
you would listen to the tape of
the February 3, 2003 commis-
sion meeting that you once
again might recall the special
designation the firing range has
with it.
I have been in contact with
Senior Trial Attorney Steven H.
Schlesinger of the Department
of Treasury's asset forfeiture
section. Mr. Schlesinger di-
rected me to advise you that if
in fact you had disposed of the
firing range in any manner that I
should request that a fair market
appraisal be completed on said
range and buildings as soon as
practical and the board of
County Commissioners would
be responsible for replacing the
fair market equivalent (today's
value) back into the Federal
Law Enforcement Trust Fund
pursuant to federal guidelines.


Please advise me of the ac-
tion taken regarding the firing
range so that I can get back with
the federal attorney.
Sincerely,
Sheriff Turner"
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission, in a previous meeting,
agreed and voted to approve the
land exchange with the Gilchrist
County School District.
"It is not my intent for the
Gilchrist County School District
to get between the County
Commission and the Sheriff's
Office, but we all need to step
back and take a look into the
future and see what is best for
Gilchrist County," School Dis-
trict Superintendent Buddy
Vickers explained to the board
in the September 8"' meeting.
"It would be a tremendous asset
for our youth to be able to at-
tend college right here in Gil-
christ County," Vickers stated.
Lake City Community Col-
lege President Dr. Hall and
Sheriff Turner have been in dis-
cussion trying to work out some
details involving cooperation
between the two agencies.
LCCC would also consider a
law enforcement academy in the
Gilchrist County campus that
would utilize the firing range for
the students attending the
classes.
Gilchrist County Commis-
sioner Tommy Langford spoke

It is such a pleasure to know
of wonderful young people who
are out there in our society, not
trying to make a name for them-
selves, but eagerly preparing for
their future, while serving oth-
ers. Samantha Bishop is just
one of those young adults and
was chosen to be the "Personal-
ity of the Month" for Septem-
ber.
Samantha is a native of Silver
Creek, Mississippi and in 1994,
moved from there with her
mother, Debbie and her sister,
Kate, to Trenton. She attends
Fanning Springs Community
Church and is very active in the
youth group. Taking part in
mission trips is among her fa-
vorite things to do. Samantha

Samantha Bishop
was selected to receive the
"Valedictorian" award for the
senior class of 2005 from


Trenton High School. She also
received two scholarships; The
Bright Future's Academic and
the Robert C. Byrd, both of
which she considers a real
blessing. Miss Bishop is a pre-
med student and her plans are to
be a medical missionary.
When talking about
ATTENTIVENESS, Samantha
feels that since "all relationships
with others are important
throughout life, that when
someone else is speaking, and
you truly listen, then you can
give what they say a chance to
mean something in your life."
Miss Bishop recalls, that just
before graduation, she had a

Gilchrist Tax

Collector Is

Interested In

Conserving Fuel And

Changing Hours To

Four Days A Week


The Gilchrist County Com-
mission heard a request from
Gilchrist County Tax Collector
M.D. (Marilyn) Bruce to allow
her office to conserve fuel by
changing the office hours to
four 10-hour days.
Gilchrist County Commis-
sioner Tommy Langford ex-
plained to the three-member
commission that Tax Collector
Marilyn Bruce had spoken with
him about changing the hours to
conserve energy. Commis-
sioner Langford asked the board
during the Commissioner's Re-
ports portion of the September
8th meeting if the county de-
partments and the courthouse
would consider going to a four
day work week until the energy
crisis has eased, "Just to con-
serve gas more than anything
else," Commissioner Langford
explained.
At the present time the Gil-
christ County Transportation
Department works four ten-hour
days, but they work a reduced
staff on Friday to take care of
office communications.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford explained that the Tax
Collector's office reported they
have a lot of people that go
through a crunch trying to get to
the office between the current
hours of 8:30-4:30. "They felt
they could cover those bases by
working Tuesday-Friday and
closing the office on Monday,"
Commissioner Langford ex-,
plained.
Gilchrist County Clerk Joe


Gilliam explained the clerk's of-
fice schedule is made up along
with the Judicial schedule in
conducting court cases in Gil-
christ County. "We can't very
well close because court is
scheduled five days a week,"
Gilliam explained.
Damon Leggett, Property
Appraiser, reported at this time
that they were not considering
the possibility of reducing the
office hours of the Property Ap-
praiser's office.
Susan J. Bryant, Supervisor
of Elections, reported that
Florida Statutes require the Su-
pervisor of Elections Office be
open Monday through Friday to
serve the people in Gilchrist
County.

Some Gilchrist

Residents Complain

Taxes Are Too High

For Minimal Services

Provided


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission held a Public Hearing
on September 8th to allow the
public to be heard regarding the
tax rate set for the 2005-06 fis-
cal year. This year will begin
October 1, 2005.
The chairman opened the
hearing at 5:30 p.m. with the
consideration of a Resolution
05-39 to establish a Tentative
Ad Valorem Millage Rate.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to approve
Resolution 05-39. Commis-
sioner Tommy Langford gave a
second to the motion. The
board discussed the resolution
and determined the $9.0294 per
$1,000 would amount to a 12.17
percent increase. The commis-
sion chairman asked for public
comments to address the board.
Don Paulson, a resident of
NE Gilchrist County since
1979, explained that his taxes
increased 14 percent or $2,600
from 2004. He explained he
pays $161 yearly for garbage
and fire service and he lives in a
single-family residence. "This
is totally outrageous for the
services that this county pro-
vides," Paulson explained.
Meveree Carlisle Pope told
the board that she was confused.
"How did the value of my prop-
erty increase $60,000 from last
year?" she asked. She ex-
plained her property flooded
extensively during the 2004
storms. "I want to know if I can
divide my property and sell it in
five acre tracts?" she asked.-
Mrs. Pope was directed to con-
tact the Gilchrist County


Building Department for further
information on dividing her
property.
Damon Leggett, Gilchrist
County Property Appraiser, ex-
plained that the property values
in Gilchrist County have in-
creased since 2003. The in-
creases in property values are in
relation to the sales of neigh-
boring parcels.
Leggett went on to say that
the Property Appraiser's Office
uses the existing FEMA Flood
maps to determine the value of
property that is in a flood plane.
The appraiser went on to ex-
plain that there are many parcels
in the county that did flood in
2004 that are not designated as
being located in a flood plane.
At this time the Suwannee River
Water Management District is
working with FEMA to update
the flood maps for Gilchrist
County.
A man that moved into Gil-
christ County one year ago ex-
plained that when he lived in
Hillsborough County, he paid
$1,000 in Ad Valorem property
taxes. He explained if the
Resolution 05-39 is approved,
he would have to pay $1,000 in
property taxes next year in Gil-
christ County. He complained
that you have to pay taxes but
you don't get any services for
the money.
The chairman called for a
vote and the board approved the
resolution 4-0.
The commission chairman
addressed Resolution 05-40
identifying the proposed budget

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County was once a
small rural 'agriculture commu-
nity which was enjoyed by eve-
ryone who visited here and
loved by the natives that make it
theirhome.
On September 8"' when I at-
tended a Public Meeting to ,dis-
cuss and consider the tentative
changes that 'were going to be
made in the county for 2005-06,
it was reality all over again to.
hear people complaining about
living in the country.

People move to Gilchrist
County and they want the serv-
ices that they expected when
they lived in places like Hills-
borough County, but they don't
want to pay properIr taxes that
would provide: for' necessities
that people need in the country.

I told one fellow last week
that I have been here over 45
years. He explained that I have
been here too long. Sometimes
I thi~k that too is true.
The elected officials in Gil-
christ County are facing some
tough decisions at this point in
time. Growth issues, as %well as
situations facing the educational
concerns in the local public
schools, must be a priority to
prepare for the future.

Although the first day of
S Autumn is a few weeks away, I
sure have enjoyed stepping
-outside to cooler tempi atures
several mornings lately. Those
cooler days make me think that
it will not be long before we
can pull out our flannel shirts
and make plans to head for the
hunting camp.
John and I went over to the
east coast on Sunday afternoon
to visit our daughter, Carrie.
As we traveled east we noticed
some of the maple trees are
already changing colors in
Clay County. We wondered if
cold weather may come a little
early this year.
When the temperature drops
I like to cook breakfast for
supper sometimes. Our usual
breakfast-for-supper meal is
pancakes and ham, sausage
and bacon. But sometimes I
kick it up a gear and make
Breakfast Pie or Sunday
- Brunch Casserole.'
* If you are looking for some
new breakfast dishes here are
two tried and true dishes that
my family really likes a lot.

1 cup shredded mild Cheddar


cup of cheese, season salt, salt,
pepper, butter and bacon.
Transfer to a greased 9x13
inch baking dish. Bake
uncovered at 350 degrees for
35-40 minutes until knife
inserted comes out clean.
About 10 minutes before the
casserole is done sprinkle the
half cup of grated cheese on
top. Makes 8-10 servings.
Note: When cooking the
Breakfast Pie I use the ready
rolled out piecrust that is
carried at the local store next
to the eggs and canned
biscuits. This crust is made by
Pillsbury and comes two rolled
up crusts per package. I find
that I like these crust which
you have to put in a pie pan or
glass pie plate and shape to fit
better than the ready-to-us
frozen pie crust.
I. unfortunately haven't
mastered .the art of. making
homemade piecrust.
If you like food cooked with
a little extra heat, diced up
Jalapefio. could be added' to
either recipe. I would only add
about one pepper, but for those
of you who really like it hot
you can add just as many as
you can stand. When buying
cheese for either of these.
recipes I would use Red Rind
Hoop Cheese that I pick up in
the meat section of our local'
Hitchcock's grocery store.
Sometimes I add fresh saut6d
mushrooms to either reci pe.

"I didn't know who would
have the authority\ to tell the
constitutional officer whether
they could change their office
schedule." Commissioner
Tommy Langford explained.
The board discussed estab-
lishing or changing of the office
schedule for constitutional offi-
cers. The Clerk explained the
Board of County Commission-
ers establish the schedule .for
holidays each year. The consti-
tutional officers in the court-
house usually follow the sched-
ule that the Commission has
'established.
John NMcPherson. Gilchrist
County Attorney, discussed this
issue with the Commission.
The board determined that 'a
constitutional officer has the
authority to make the decision
to change the schedule of their
_,office. The board took no ac-
tion on this discussion.


The Rule Of God In My Life
(Kent Heaton)
J


Living in a democracy deludes the concept of
,kingdom rule. Under the rule of a King, subjects
are bound by the authority of one man. When the
King speaks, his word is law and his will is the
will of the people; A democracy permits the sub-
jects to take part in an election allowing their
wills to hold sway over the country. In the human
course of government this is a pleasing course of
liberty; in the spiritual realm of obedience to God
it is unacceptable.
SThe rule of God has never been a democracy.
In the Garden of Eden, it was inot a matter of
choice on man's part whether to eat the fruit from
the tree of knowledge. God had instructed man:
"Of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,
thou shall not eat of it: for in the day that thou
eat thereof thou shall surely die" (Genesis,2:17).
It was not the will of God for man to "vote" on
whether this was acceptable or not. The Almighty
declared "thou shall not" and imposed penalty if
the law was broken. Satan is the one that suggest-
ed Eve reconsider the.command of God and dis-
obey the law (Genesis 3:1-7). Because of their re-
bellion, they received the punishment of sin
(Genesis 3:8-24).
The rule of God was ignored by Cain (Genesis
4:7) and early man (Genesis 6:5). When God es-
tablished the nation of Israel He declared his rule
of law. "I am the Lord thy God, which have
brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the
house of bondage. Thou shall have no other
gods before me" (Exodus 20:2-3). The rule of
God is that He is Lord and I am not. The second
phase of God's rule is seen that He'is our creator,
our maker,, our keeper and our deliverer (Genesis
1:1,27; Acts 17:26; Hebrews 13:6). The absolute
of the rule of God is there can be no other gods
before the Great I AM. The people of Israel were
obligated to serve only Jehovah God and remove
all trappings of man's will from their lives. They
failed in this task (Psalm 78).
The rule of God is an imperative characteristic
of the disciple of Christ. This rule is established


throughout the teaching of Jesus. "Seek first the
kingdom of God" (Matthew 6:33) demands that
disciples of God follow first the will and rule of
God in their lives. Jesus demanded His disciples
to bear a cross and follow Him. "If any man will
come after me, let him deny himself, and take up
his cross, and follow me" (Matthew 16:24). A.
W. Tozer described cross bearing: "To be cruci-
fied means, first, the man on the cross is facing
only one direction; second, he is not going back;
and third, he has no further plan of his own."
The rule of God in the life of the disciple is tak-
ing His 'yoke and learning from Him in every por-
tion of life (Matthew 11:29). The apostle Paul re-
minds us "there is but one God, the Father, of
whom are all things, and we in him; and one
Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and
we by him" (1 Corinthians 8:6). To exercise the
rule of God in my life is to accept His will in my
speech, my actions, my thoughts, my heart, my
life my ALL! "And thou shall love the Lord thy
God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and
with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this
is thefirst commandment" (Mark 12:30).
The rule of God is not an institution of works
but a relationship of a helpless child to a caring
Father. Our dependence upon God is necessary for
life itself. The King we serve is full of mercy and
grace. We trust in Him completely because He
provides completely. His law is not burdensome
(1 John 5:3) and His rule is protective (Psalm
27:1).
The rule of God can only be received voluntari-
ly. We must make the decision to accept His rule
and to live by His rule. "Come to me" (Matthew
11:28) is a plea of suggestion of imploring those
who would come to Jesus. Obedience to the rule
of God is a daily walk of submission. Learning
each day to walk before God creates trust in the
King. The more we walk with Him, the more we
trust Him. The more we trust Him, the more we
live by His rule.

Central Florida Electric Sends Crews

To Help With Katrina Recovery


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Central Florida Electric has
sent out several crews to help
with the Hurricane Katrina re-
covery.
Small rural co-ops, in the
three states which the storm hit
hardest, are being assisted by
crews from power companies
from throughout the country.
Central Florida Electric received
the call for assistance from Bill
Willingham who is the coordi-
nator of all the rural electric co-
operative emergency needs in
the state of Florida. Mr. Wil-
lingham works for Florida
Electric Cooperatives Associa-
tion and when an emergency
arises he is the coordinator be-
tween individual cooperatives to
help them get the help they
need. During an emergency,
such as Hurricane Katrina, all
the electric cooperatives send as
many crews as they can spare at
a time to assist.
Randy Vogel of Central
Florida Electric Cooperative
said the first crew from CFEC
consisted of three, two-man
crews, two big bucket trucks
and a digger derrick 4. wheel
drive unit which is used to set
poles. The first three crews
worked tirelessly in southwest-
ern Alabama to help Clark
Washington Electric Coopera-
tive restore power to many of
their customers.
On Labor Day weekend a
second set of three crews was
sent to meet and relieve the first
crews. The fresh crews took the
bucket trucks and digger derrick


This is the second Central Florida Electric crew which helped out with recovery efforts
after Hurricane Katrina. This crew worked in the Mississippi area. Shown from left
are Josh Hiers, Jonathan Polk, Brett Plemmons, Grady Jones, Mike Jenkins and
Lawrence Allen.


unit into Mississippi to work on
the line repairs and set poles for
Pearl River Valley Electric Co-
operative. An additional set of
crews has been sent since that
time to work in the Pearl River
Valleys service area.
Mr. Vogel, said as of Mon-
day, some 16,000 customers of
Pearl River Valley Electric Co-


operative were still without
power. Statewide in Mississippi
there are some 64,000 custom-
ers of rural electric cooperatives
without power this week. He
went on to say that he expects to
send another set .of crews this
coming weekend to relieve the
crews currently in Mississippi.

The general philosophy of our
local cooperative is that it is al-
ways better to send crews "to
help instead of having to ask for
assistance here. The cooperative
is happy to assist customers be
reconnected to their rural elec-
tric cooperative in a time of

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library:
This week we're passing on
book recommendations from
our patrons. Mystery novels are'
a big favorite and if the mixture
of humor and intrigue appeals to
you, try one of the books writ-
ten by Jane Evanovich. We,
have several hardback,books of
hers and a few paperbacks too.
Haie )ou tried inyy'' audio
books'- They're great to take on "
a trip to listen to along the %av.
We have a ne\\ one b) Mar)
Higgins Clark called. Mount
'Vernon Love Ston and you'll be
surprised by some of the his-
torical facts about George
Washington.
Most of you Harry Potter fans
have read the latest book by
now so here are a couple sug-
gestioiis for junior readers. The
library recently received a do-
nation of several books in the
Black Stallion series by Walter
Farley. Horse lovers will end
up reading our entire collection.
Every few years a new Robin'
Hood movie is released but have
you ever read the original book
The Adventures of Robin Hood
by Paul Creswick? The book
covers the entire life of Robin
Hood. complete with Sherwood
SForest, Maid Nlarian. the Sheriff
of Nottingham, Will Scarlett
and the rest. I wo under if there
really was a Robin Hood. Per-
haps because England. in the
middle of Sherwood Forest
stands the "major oak" a huge
Sold tree that supposedly is the
one Robin and his men would.
hide in as they waited to "rob
the rich to give to the poor."
Beginning readers have all
sorts of choices. Read about the
poor boy who learned he would
be in the room of The Teacher
From the Black Lagoon. 0
dear! It's written by Mike
Thaler. Or maybe you can ask
your parents, very nicely, if they
would read The Velveteen Rab-
bit to you. It's.a beautiful story
about a little boy's favorite
stuffed animal. The boy's love
for his toy helps him through a
serious illness and afterwards,
saves the beloved bunny from a
terrible fate. Margery Williams
is the author.

Bell Library has opened a
special account at Capital City
Bank called the Bell Library
Building Fund. We're working
toward building a new library
on the acre of land which was
donated to the Town of Bell for
that specific purpose. The new
library will give us some
breathing room, space to pro-
vide additional services plus a
room for organizations and
clubs to use for meetings or
classes and for us to use for
book sales. We would be de-
lighted with any donations,
large or small. Perhaps you
might even consider an estate
bequest. Donations may be
mailed to Bell Library, P.O.
Box 995, Bell, Florida 32619 or
dropped off at the library. Do-
nations are tax deductible and a
receipt will be provided to each
donor as a record for tax pur-
poses.
Notice how full our shelves
are the next time you visit the
library. Most of the books have
been donated by you, our pa-
trons. Thank you for your sup-
port and generosity these past
ten years.

Sometimes it seems the court
system does not consider what
is best for the child, only what
may seem legally correct. It is
our responsibility to enlighten
the.court system that they must
review all issues to enable these
children to have stable homes
which will assist them in be-
coming happy, well-adjusted
and solid individuals.
If you have taken on the re-
sponsibility of raising your
grandchild or grandchildren you
may face new problems and
new joys. Your new or con-
tinuing role brings powerful
feelings, parenting questions,
legal and financial challenges
and sometimes exhaustion. You
are not alone. Sharing our
ideas, experiences and.resources
is the foundation of our organi-
zation.,
Due to the rising gas prices
we understand the added pres-
sures that are now facing many
families and we are working on
scheduling a support group
meeting at Spring Ridge Church
in High Springs. We would like
to set a time which would be the
most convenient for as .many
people as possible and it is im-
portant to us (so call and let us
know). If you are a relative or

Charleen Hitt Of Bell Working For

Hurricane Victims


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Sometimes our young
people really do step up to the
plate and make a difference.
Bell Elementary Principal
Terry Owens reported that just
such an event had occurred last
weekend in Bell. Charleen
Hitt, a member of Ms.
Murray's third grade class,
held a yard sale to benefit the
hurricane victims.
Charleen presented Mr.
Owens with $85 which she
raised over the weekend. Mr.
Owens stated that he would be
sending the money to the Red
Cross. Charleen's efforts to
raise funds for those who now
find themselves homeless have
not stopped with the yard sale.
She decorated cans that she. is
hoping students and teachers
will contribute pennies to at
both the Bell elementary and
high school offices. This fund-
raiser is called "Pennies for
Angels." Charleen said she
.and her mother have been.
rolling loose change.at home to
donate.
When asked why she had
decided to work so hard for the
hurricane victims she said,
"My mom and I watched some.
of the victims on T.V. and
decided that we could raise
some money by selling some
of our old clothes and some of
my old toys."
Charlene Hitt is the daughter
of Tiina and Jason Hitt of Bell.
She has two bothers, Justin and
Raymond.

The Tigers Tigers used a
balanced attack to defeat
District 1 1A Sneads Friday
night in the panhandle. "Friday
night's game was not as close as
the score indicated,", reported
Trenton's Coach Janes. The
Tiger's offense could not be
stopped as quarterback Guy
Brown led the Tigers on four of
their six drives for scores.
Brown completed 11 of 14
passes for 184 yards and three
touchdown completions. The
sophomore also picked up 54
yard rushing on five carries.
Trenton's Brandon Mathis
topped the stats chart for the
Tigers as he rushed for .138
yards on nine carries. Mathis
also added 140 yards receiving
seven receptions and scored two
touchdowns. '
Tiger Durrell Henry added a.
touchdown oh' a 27-yard run.'
He also was -on the receiving
end of a 22-yard pass from
Brown for a touchdown. Henry
also left an impression with the
home' team as, he, forced two.
fumbles on Snead's offense.


Henry also had eight tackles on
defense from his cornerback
post. Miles Harris led the
Tiger's defense with nine
tackles.
The Tiger's defense had a
tough night trying to stop the
Snead's power ground game.
"Snead's led the possession
clock the entire game as they
hammered away with their three
yards and a pile 'of dust
offense," reported Coach Janes.
Snead's offense was less than
impressive and failed to keep
pace with the Tiger's high
scoring balanced attack. The
Snead's offense took advantage
of two Trenton fumbles as they
set up their offense inside the 40
yard line.
The Tigers will travel to
Hawthorne Friday night to play
the (1-2) Hornets. Kickoff is set
for 7:30 p.m.

out on Tuesday and what a
great day we all had. So much
was done; the weather was
rather cool. and everyone had
plenty to do. We couldn't be
where we are without the al-
most 800 boys who have
worked out here since April

Lunch was again great with
meat loaf, mashed potatoes,-
potato salad, biscuits, dump

Dear Parent / Guardian:

On behalf of all Gilchrist County Schools, I want to share with you how proud I
am of what our teachers and children have accomplished during the 2004-2005 School
Year. Due to their performance on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test, as well as
other indicators,. Gilchrist County is 1 of 15 districts in the state to receive a District
School Grade of "A". As you review the information that is part of the annual School Re-
port, you will see areas in which we are excelling as well as areas that we are.in need of
improving. We hope to use this information as we move into the 2005-2006 School Year
with improving student skills-especially in reading as our direction.

I encourage you to take an active part in your child's education. Each school has
various ways in which you can participate. However, if you can do nothing else for your
children, READ TO THEM!

5 Springhouse Quilters News

Springhouse
Quilter's News
The night owls of the Spring-
house Quilters are working on
restoring two antique "Crazy
Patch" quilts. This is a time-
consuming effort and requires
many sessions where members
gather around the quilt to restore
the destroyed work. This work
is done by hand with needle and
thread, and gives the night
group additional projects to
work on and many hours of so-
cial time having an old fash-
ioned "quilting bee."
Springhouse Quilters are
working on projects for the up-
coming quilt show in Novem-
ber. Members are reminded that
the application to enter quilts in
the show must be turned in by
September 15th to Pat Hodges,
to allow the committee suffi-
cient time to get the quilts in-
dexed, categorized, and ready
for judging and showing.
For information on Spring-
house Quilters call or contact
Kay Fales, 490-7909 or Lois
Scott, 463-2207.

Character First!
Theme Of The
Month Is
ATTENTIVENESS
By Geneva Cornwell
For the white-tailed deer,
ATTENTIVENESS is a matter
of life and death. Its eyes, ears
and nose remain constantly alert
of any sign of danger. Cougars,
coyotes and wolves prey heavily
on deer, which fail to demon-
strate ATTENTIVENESS.


Close observation of a deer re-
veals that its attention is focused
in the direction its ears are
pointed. Like that of the white-
tailed deer, the human ear is
nothing short of phenomenal.
Each part is an indispensable
piece of the whole and illus-
trates a unique dimension of
ATTENTIVENESS.
ATTENTIVENESS describes
the concentration we apply to
each of the five senses sight,
smell, touch, taste and hearing.
ATTENTIVENESS literally
.controls all information input.
The following. "I Wills" are
practical commitments vital to
the application of
ATTENTIVENESS. I t ill:
look at people when the) speak
to me; ask questions if I don't
understand; sit or stand straight:
not draw attention to mNself and
keep mn eyes. ears, hands, feet
and mouth from distractions.
Being attentive to a person is
one of man) ways to sho\ the
worth of someone.
ATTENTIVENESS is similar
to aleriness, concentration arnd
discretion, but it is helpful to
distinguish the differences be-
tween these character qualities
and learn how\ the\ balance each


other. Alertness is being aware
of one's surroundings. Con-
centration is using all the senses
to gain the most information
possible. Discretion is avoiding
words, actions and attitudes that
can bring undesirable results.
ATTENTIVENESS is a quality
vital for identifying those to
whom attention should or
should not be given.
ATTENTIVENESS describes
the concentration we apply to
each of the five senses, thus
being the "Key" to all informa-
tion input. ATTENTIVENESS
also relates to the quality of
thought used to contemplate the
information received through
these senses.
ATTENTIVENESS is also re-
sponding to the statements of
others in a way that communi-
cates value for the individual.
Showing the worth of a person
by being attentive includes
asking questions and being
genuinely interested.
ATTENTIVENESS is a basic
step to showing consideration
for others.
Five ways to show
ATTENTIVENESS is Make
eye contact; Lean forward;
don't look at your watch; take
notes; and stifle yawns, coughs,
and sneezes. George Washing-
ton said, When others speak, be
attentive yourself. With all the
ideas expressed above, and local
residents living out moral char-
acter, it is no wonder that so
much is being proven in that
Gilchrist County is a County of
Character because it's a County
that Cares.

Bits & Pieces Fromn
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Despite the fact that the tem-
perature is still hovering around
the 90s there are tell tale signs
that the famous femme fatale,
Autumnn, is slipping, in the
backdoor.
.: The nights and early morn-
ings have been a tad cooler, a
skiddish breeze rustles through
the trees and tosses the curls of
golden rods along the fields and
highways. The spring and
summer wildflow\ers hase long
since bedded down for the win-
ter and the sycamores ha\e
traded in their dark green gowns
for soft brown ones which \will
soon be discarded leading the
branches stark naked until
spring.


While I am not looking for-
ward to ice on my Windshield,, I
am looking forward to cool
crisp days that make you feel
like running and playing tag
with leaves dancing in the wind.
And to help get us in: the
mood and prepared for what lies
ahead, on our "Make It and
Take It" day, August, 3i',
Evelyn Wood taught us how to.
make beautiful .string art
Christmas ornaments. Eighteen
Joyful Hearts were present and
accounted for. ,Not everyone-
tried their hand at the delicate
decorations Some ladies
worked on their Sw\edish
weaving or whatever. Those of
us that made string art beauties
learned a great and old. old les-
son.. read all of the directions.
Yes. even today with all its
technology...haste still makes
waste.
Once finished, \we did not
spray them with a fabric stiff-


ener, let it dry for an hour and
repeat the process two more
times. We sprayed them only
once so of course they fell apart,
but hey, we learned a new de-
lightful craft and an old lesson.
We all plan to make more of
them.. .the right way.
On Wednesday, September
7th, only 16 Joyful Hearts made
it to our regular meeting. Hope-
fully, those unable to attend
were not ill. I do know several
were having lunch with grand or
great-grandchildren 'at Bell
Elementary. Our next meeting
will be Wednesday, September
21st and God willing we'll have
a full house.
Ann Taylor having finished
embroidering her' pillowcases,
has taken up finishing a needle-
point piece someone else
started. It took some trial and
error starts, but she 'finally got
the hang of it and was doing
great.
Elaine Nemeth and Ann
'Mangone were lovingly stitch-
ing on our oh so unique "Club"
quitt: I just love it. It is not the
least bit practical I suppose
that's why I like it so much...go.
figure.
Evelyn Wood, Alice Binns',
and Heidi Kamp were all mak-
ing squares for our new% "Club"'
quilt. The first instructions
were not quite right but we've
got it together now and Heidi
has made four or five already. I
believe several others ha e
completed some as well. :I
guess the rest of us need to get
busy. .
Diana Lynn is still working
on her beautiful counted cross-
stitch and I'm still working on
my pillowcases. I can't believe
it's taking me so long but there
just doesn't seem to be 24 hours
in a day anymore. Seems like
someone is stealing a few more
each day because by five or six
o'clock in the evening I scratch
my head and say. "Where did
the day go?"
Judy Pflueger %\as busy
making darling baby hats.for the
ho'plital!r. She' had threevO'four-
w\ith her and one %was cuter than
the next. Keep up the good
wsork Judy.
Jackie Moore. Mary Lou RN-
der. Ruth Wilkerson, Martha
Foster and Cathy. Strom were all
as busy as bees around a bee-
hi\e doing what? Swedish
weaving...of course. Someone
had given Jane Boyd quilt
squares to be embroidered.
Some were finished some were
not. It looks quite old and
should make a lovely quilt. She
also showed us a great over-the-
shoulder tote that can be three
different sizes depending on
how you fold it...a cleaver idea.
Rita Simcoe was embroider-
ing pillowcases for her grand-
daughter's new room. It's so
nice to be able to give gifts of
love instead of always just
buying them. And they are so
nice to receive.
Well, as usual, the time
passes by too quickly and be-
fore we knew it the clock and
our tupnmies told us it was time
for lunch. Some folks brought
theirs, others bought one for a
dollar donation to the fire de-
partment...salad, chicken and
rice, garlic bread and a drink.
Jackie Moore brought cupcakes
and Martha Foster brought in a
cherry dump cake...yummy
yummy. If that wasn't enough,
we had the makings for ice
cream sundaes and banana
splits...talk about spoiled, yes
swe certainly are.
And blessed...as I looked
around the room at the faces of
such dear friends my thought
were of those ravaged by Ka-
trina. I remembered Andrew
and the devastation left in its
sake...nothing left standing as
far as you could see, for miles
on end. My mother and my
daughter lived across the street
from one another in the hardest
hit area.' Td this day it still has ,
inot all been rebuilt.
"There but for the Grace of
G6d go I" should be on the lips
of each and every one of .us.
And what is "grace?". It is a gift
that'cannot be bought or earned
and it isn't even deserved.
The" sad part is that we are
'very slow learners. In times 'f


great despair and disaster we
unite together and become our.
brother's keeper. Unfortunately
the poor, the sick, the elderly
were there, in need, before the .
mighty winds and waves en-
gulfed them, but did we care?
All around the countryin our
cities and right here at home,


there are people in need. Do we
have to have disasters of mass
devastation to get our attention?
What does it take for us to open
our hearts, our homes, our
pocket books?
We will, as we have done be-
fore in times of war, terrorism,
and great disasters, rise to the
occasion. But all too soon we
will become complacent and
settle down into our everyday
lives that leave little or no time
to be our brother's keeper. I
know that it says nothing in the
Bible about there having been a
flood, hurricane, tornado, war,
famine, etc. when the Good
Samaritan came upon a fellow
man in need, one that had been
beaten and robbed.
This parable is not meant to
tell us'who our neighbor is or
under what circumstances
should we care for our neigh-
bors. It is meant to show us that
we should be a good neighbor
(Samaritan) to all...all the time.
It, isn't just about giving
money, commodities and being
there to help rescue, give aid
and comfort and to help rebuild
in times of great despair and
devastation. It's also about.the
thousands of missed opportuni-
ties to sa. a kind, word, to do a
kind deed, to share sour time, to
bring a ray of sunshine to one
walking alone through dark
times.
It's the phone call you didn't
have time to make, the card you
.never sent, the hug you never
gave, the tears you never
Shared. It's the \words "I lo\e
Syou," "I'm sorry." "I care.
neser spoken. It's sharing sto-
ries that make one laugh. read-
ing to one who cannot, singing
to lift one's spirit and sharing
your blessings wshateser they
might be.
For me. one of the saddest'
things in the aftermath of such
great devastation is not only that
much of it could hase been pre-
vented but that so man" will
have regrets about things left
unsaid to loved ones and
friends. What does it cost to
mend broken relationships. to
heal old \wounds, to forgive and
forget
One of the greatest tragedies
in life is thinking there %will al-
%wa.s be time, always be tomor-
row. Yet God tells us over and
over to be prepared. that ,e do
Snot kno\..the hour qf.His com-
Sirig. I believe He just doesn't
mean when the Lord will come
to claim His bride but when He
shall call us home.
We are blessed not only be-
cause \we escaped the wind and
wa\es of Katrina but because
we have a chance to make
amends, be our brother's keeper
and make a difference in the
lives of others everyday. Re-
member. even the smallest thing
is often a big deal to someone
else.
God speaks to us in many
ways and like most children we
often choose not to listen or pay
attention. Like the \words to that
song that \was so popular during
the 70s.."When will they ever
learn, when will they ever
learn?"
'Til next time,

The Amencan Legion conducts a ceremony before each meeting
explaining the POW/MIA plight. It involves a table for one. a place
setting for one and goes Iike this. Those %who ha\e served, and those
currently serTing in the uniformed serTices of the United States, are
eser mindful that the stweemess of enduring peace has always been
tainted by the bitterness of personal sacrifice. We are compelled to
never forget that while we enjoy our daily pleasures, there are others
who ha\e endured and may still be enduring the agonies of pain,
deprivation and imprisonment We pause in recognition of our
POW's and NIA's. Attennon is gl\en to a small table., uhch
occupies a place of dignity, and honor. It is set for one symbolizing
the fact that members of our armed forces are rmssing for our ranks.
They are referred to as POW's and MIA's
W'e call them comrades. They are unable to be with their lo\ed
ones and families, so we join together to pay humble tnbute to them,
and to bear dimness to their continued absence.
The table is small, symbolizing the fraillt of one prisoner, alone
against his or her suppressors.
The tablecloth is % white. s\ mbolic of the punty of their intentions to
respond to their Country's call to arms.
The single rose in the vase signifies the blood they ma) hate shed
in sacnfice to endure the freedom of our beloved United States of
America. The rose also reminds us of the family and fnends of our
missing comrades \\ho keep faith, while awaiting their return.
The red nbbon on the \ase represents the red nbbons worn on the
lapels of the thousands \who demand, with unyielding determination.
a proper account of our comrades w ho are not among us.
A slice of lemon on the plate reminds us of their better fate.
The salt spnnkled on the plate, reminds us of the countless fallen
tears of families as the% wait.
The glass is inverted, they cannot toast swith us at this time.
The chair is empty. They are NOT here.
The candle is reminiscent of the light of hope. uhich lies in our
hearts to illuminate their way home, away from their captors, to open
arms of a grateful nation.
The American flag reminds us that many of them may never
return, and ha\e paid the supreme sacrifice to insure our freedom
Let us remember and never forget their sacrifice. May GOD
forever watch over them and protect them and their families

Progress Energy
Florida Renews Call
For Conservation
Progress Energy Florida has
reiterated its appeal to custom-
ers to conserve electricity.
Because Hurricane Katrina
impacted the supply of natural
gas from the Gulf of Mexico,
the Florida Reliability Coordi-
nating Council and other utili-
ties across the state have contin-
ued the statewide appeal for
conservation.
For the short term, Progress
Energy's fuel inventory is fine,
but the long-term prospects are
less clear. By reducing energy
use, especially during the after-
noon and early evening hours,
customers will help utilities
conserve fuel used in power
plants, which will ensure reli-
able power for everyone.
"If everyone takes simple
steps to conserve, we can make
a big impact," said Jeff Lyash,
senior vice president for Energy
Delivery in Florida.
Progress Energy Florida has
implemented energy conserva-
'tion measures, including the
Energy Management Program.
The voluntary program helps
reduce overall power demand
by remotely controlling pool'
pumps, water heaters and air
conditioners for short periods of
time. Customers receive a dis-
count on their monthly power
bills for participating in this
program.
The Energy Management
Program was implemented early
this week and is expected again.
'Li'ash suggested:customers
turn off unnecessary lights,
avoid using dishwashers. and
other appliances during the eve-
ning hours, and keep the ther-
mostat at the highest comfort-
able setting until further notice.
Progress energy recommends
the following tips toconserve
energy:
Set your thermostat on the
highest comfortable setting
Change air conditioner filters
monthly. Dirt\ filters can in-
crease operating costs.
For central air conditioning
systems, keep the fan switch on
your thermostat in the "auto'.'
position when cooling. This
gives you better cooling and
humidity control. Having the
fan switch "on" continuously
could costt$25 extra on- your
Ui' rNh e electric bill.'!-- .'
Use ceiling and portable fans
to keep air moving. Remember
that ceiling fans cool people, not
rooms, so turn them off \hen'
leading for the day or extended
periods.

can. We will rotate through all
who wish to lead a song.
We are asking for only
acoustic instruments and please
no "Rap." Full drum sets are
probably too loud but bongo or
tambourines might work.
We are also still working on
acquiring a sound system for
especially vocals, and possibly
for instruments if we do this
outdoors. If you have informa-

know who and what we have
available this week so I can
work toward the time plans.

To inspect, or not to Inspect?
- The Buyer is faced with several,
fees when buying a house, there is
the appraisal, the survey, and the
Home inspection. This column will
focus on the Home Inspection
aspect.
- A:home inspection lets the buyer
know exactly what they are buying.
'It is not just a way to get the seller
to fit items, or to take more money
off the sales price, the inspection
allows the buyer to make- an
informed decision When making a
purchase.
- Your sales contract should specify
the "inspection period", which is
usually 10 days. During that time
the Buyer can have any inspections
that they want. A good Home
Inspector looks under the home, in
the attic, on the roof, at the
electrical system, the Air
conditioning, water pressure and
much more. They will provide the
Buyer's agent with a report, that
usually includes pictures of the
faulty items.

our area, visit my web site

to the public that the approval of
this resolution would improve
the fire service in Gilchrist
County.
Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford explained, "I support this
plan, but I feel it is unfair to
charge for vacant properties.
The proposed plan, by charging
vacant properties, will raise
$58,000 for revenue. I think
this revenue could be made up
somewhere else," she explained.
There were many people at-
tending the meeting that spoke
in favor of the Fire Service
Resolution. The board voted 4-
0 in favor of the resolution.

conversation with her English
teacher at Trenton High School,
Mrs. Jessica Schofield, and
during that conversation she
"picked up on so much wisdom
from (the teacher), simply by
showing ATTENTIVENESS.
Samantha believes that "It is'
so important for us, as young
people, to glean from older peo-
ple and their wisdom and
knowledge, for by showing
ATTENTIVENESS, both sides
of the coin are polished; with
one side, we gain from their ex-
perience and the other, they gain
by us showing respect to them."
This delightful young lady
loves God's Word and uses it
often in her daily quiet times
and conversation with others as
well. One of her favorite
Scripture verses, which helps to
keep the character quality of
ATTENTIVENESS before the
"eyes" of her heart is from
Proverbs 1:8 & 9. "My son,
hear the instruction of thy fa-
ther, and forsake not the law of
thy mother; for they shall be an
ornament of grace unto thy
bead, and chains about hy
neck."
Samantha Bishop, another
resident of our area, who proves
daily that a County of Character
is a County that Cares.

Sheriff Demands
County Return
Firing Range To
Sheriff's Jurisdiction
(Continued from Page One)
in favor of the college programs
being located in Gilchrist
County.
Chairman Gentry appointed
a committee consisting of
Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford, Sam Ferguson, Sheriff
David Turner and Buddy Vick-
ers to meet with Lake City Col-
lege officials to work out details
and come back to the board with
a recommendation.
If the board agreed to give
the firing range property back to
the sheriff's office, the board
would have to approve this ac-
tion by a majority vote.
The Commission could also
have the firing range property
appraised and return the esti-
mated value of money back to
the Federal Law Enforcement
Drug Program.
The committee is scheduled
to meet September 19th to con-
sider whether the property will
remain as a firing range under
the jurisdiction of the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office or if the
Commission will finish their
land exchange with the school
district to allow the property to
become a college campus.


Trenton Rotary Puts
Service Above Self
To Help Katrina
Victims

(Continued from Page One)
the case of the Katrina victims
some will be able to go back to
their homes soon and start to
clean and rebuild. Others have
no home or job to return to and
many of them have decided to
move to a place where these
natural disasters are much less
of a concern. The National Red
Cross has housed 207,000 peo-
ple, has spent 14.2 million dol-
lars on snacks and meals, and
spend about one million dollars
a day in hurricane relief. The
National Red Cross forecasts
their need will be at least one
billion dollars to help everyone
affected by this catastrophe.
They will have a better idea of
the true cost once the cases
reach a plateau and level off.
Right now the need is still ris-
ing.

They can effectively assist
those in need and keep abuse of
their system minimal by linking
all sites together. Anyone who
goes to one Red Cross site and
sets up a case is in the Red
Cross data base which is linked
not only to all other Red Cross
sites but also many of the other
groups they work with. If any-
one should try to "double dip"
the other site will see the indi-
vidual is already receiving as-
sistance and what the Red Cross
has already done for them.
The American Red Cross is a
non-governmental agency and
relies solely on the community
for their resources. Everyone
has had to learn to change and
adapt because of the impact
which Katrina made. Typically
the Red Cross offers assistance
for the first three days. This is
considered the time of immedi-
ate relief. They then refer indi-
viduals to other resources for
long-term relief. The Red Cross
has changed this timeline and
will offer relief for 14 days then
they expect that individuals will
be able to be referred to others
for their long term needs. We
have not yet reached the 14-day
point and depending on what is
happening the National Red
Cross may make further deci-
sions.

Because the businesses which
are represented in the Trenton
Rotary Club understand the im-
portance of the American Red
Cross' efforts they asked mem-
bers to make a special donation
at Monday's meeting. They
raised $2,827 during Monday's
meeting and were proud to be
able to help the American Red
Cross continue their efforts.


When an American says that
he loves his country, he means
not only that he loves the New
England hills, the prairies glis-
'tening in the sun, the wide and
rising plains, the great moun-
tains, and the sea. He means
that he loves an inner air, an in-
ner light in which freedom lives
and in which a man can draw
the breath of self-respect.
--Adlai Stevenson
