Clearwater Resident Crashes

Experimental Aircraft

Approaching Hoolihan Airstrip

Sunday Evening

The Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office reported that a pri-
vate, single engine, experimen-
tal aircraft flying into Gilchrist
County Sunday evening crashed
into a group of trees at Hoolihan
The pilot, Lassen Finn, 49, of
Clearwater, was flying his ex-
perimental aircraft into Gilchrist
County to visit friends when he
failed to negotiate the landing at
a private grass airstrip at 7:30
p.m. Sunday.
Gilchrist County Sheriff
spokesman, Harvey Montgom-
ery, reported that the Hollihan

Airstrip is a private landing area
that is described by FAA as be-
ing in a black hole at that time
of day in relation to the trees
and clear visibility from an ap-
proaching aircraft.
The small aircraft, when ap-
proaching the airstrip, brushed
into some adjacent trees and
stuck a pine tree. The single en-
gine caught fire on impact. The
pilot was able to jump from the
plane to the ground before the
plane caught fire. The plane was
broken in half during the crash
and was completely destroyed.
The Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Medical Service was dis-

patched to the scene. Upon arri-
val the paramedics treated the
pilot for multiple cuts and
bruises, along with an injured
leg. The pilot refused to be
transported to the hospital by
the emergency service.
The Sheriff's Office reported
that a friend of the pilot was on
the scene and volunteered to
take Finn to a hospital in Lake
The FAA investigators were
on the scene northwest of Bell
on Tuesday, September 27'" to
conduct a full investigation of
the accident.

Habitat For
Humanity Of
Suwannee Valley Inc.
Receives Affiliation
By Anna Wild
On Monday, September 19th
at the monthly board meeting
for Habitat for Humanity of
Suwannee Valley, Inc., there

was a very short meeting fol-
lowed by much celebration.
The members of the Habitat for
Humanity of Suwannee Valley-
have a lot to celebrate, after 2
1/2 years of hard work they
have received their "affiliation
status" from Habitat for Hu-
manity International. This is a'
major milestone because now
the real work can begin. As an
affiliated member with Habitat

for Humanity our local group
will receive additional benefits
to make their first Habitat Home
a reality.
Our local group started with
16 people wanting to get in-
volved to make a difference in
our Tri-County area. Gilchrist,
Dixie and Levy counties were in
need of a Habitat for Humanity
connection so these 16 people
went to work getting the paper-

work started, forming the non-
profit organization and acquir-
ing board members from the
community. It took a lot of hard
work but they are looking for-
ward to making a real difference
in the lives of many families in
our area.

Orlando. This is the second
straight year in which a student
from Gilchrist County has rep-
resented the local Farm Bureau
organization in the state speak-
ing competition.

For several Weeks nrow I
have been hearing people talk
about how good the fish are
biting on the Suwannee River.
I have been told that not
only are the red bellies biting,
but the blue bream as well as
bass also seem to be feeding
more than usual. Could it be
that the water is beginning to
cool down and the fish sense
that fall and colder times are
ahead? But then on the other
hand, with the three floods that
this area has. experienced in
2005, the fish seem to be much
fatter than normal.
Several people that I have
talked with explained that they
have caught fish on beetle spins,
crickets,.and just about anything-
you throw out into the shallows
of the Suwannee River.
I haven't had the opportunity
to slip our boat into the water
north of Fanning Springs, bit -I
hope the fish don't get full
before I get a chance to go to
the ri'er.
Just recently our son J came
home, ,,ith sorhe" 'very.' '
s.miok'd m u UI e t,- .L,.y ddAy
Parish's father JohnnN cooked
following a \er. successful
fishing trip to Cedar Ke). J
explained that Mr. Parrish had
smoked several of the mullet
after they determined the fish
were in such good shape. J.
explained that several of the fish

were beginning to show red roe
I was real pleased that
Johnny sent some smoked
mullet home with J. The fish
were very good. ,
Eating this smoked mullet
reminded me of the days when
Elizabeth and I would go down
to Cedar Key with daddy and
momma and we would have to
have a smoked mullet before we
left town. On our way into the
island community, we would
pass by P.H. and Susie Day's
business and it always seemed
that they would be smoking the
fish when we drove into town. I
recall that the smell of the
smoke would always alerted
daddy to the fact that the Day's
had a batch of mullet on the
smoker. We would always stop
and visit them and pick up some
fresh smoked fish. The smoked
mullet were so good that daddy
would get us one or two to eat
then and get two or three to take
home to enjoy later.
Those. were the days when
.we would .also stop by
Beckham's in the wintertime
and pick up a bushel of oysters
to eat steamed off the grill.

Each man must.for ,himself
alone decide -wh'at is right and
\ hat is wrongg w which course is
patriotic and which isn't. You
cannot shirk this and be a man.
To decide against your convic-
tion is to be an unqualified and
excusable traitor, both to your-
self and to \our county. let men
label .ou as theN may.

Last Sunday morning I was
awake bright and early. So
early it was not bright at all, in
fact it was still dark. I have
found out in the last year that
drawing near to 50 has several
drawbacks. One of them is that
I can no longer sleep in. Actu-
ally I'm doing real good to sleep
until 6:00 a.m. Several morn-
ings a week I awaken at odd
hours like 4:30 a.m. and can't
go back to sleep. Now I under-
stand why we women begin to
look older than men who are our
same age.
I won't even go into the joys
of my sporadic temperature
rises. Carrie gave me an apron
a year or so ago that pretty
much sums it up. The apron is
imprinted with this saying, "I'm
still one hot momma...it just
comes in flashes."
Sunday morning was one of
those mornings. I was up
drinking coffee and reading
through a cookbook long before
daylight. I found the following
recipe and had plenty of time to

try it. John and.J. gave

liked these cinnamon rc

A Four-Way-Stop In The Middle Of The Night
(Kent Heaton)

Driving home from a meeting one night, I ap-
proached a four-way-stop. It was in the country
where the closest speckle of light came from a
house off the road about a quarter mile back.
Stars twinkled through the clouds to give a sparse
amount of shine on the fields and roadway. The
familiar pounding of the warning bumps told me
the intersection was near. There were no other
cars in sight no human life for that matter it
seemed for miles. All indications were that no
other cars would be approaching the intersection.
The thought ran' through my mind: "Why stop?
No one is coming, no one is here I can just
drive on through without stopping."
It is possible that a lonely county deputy dould
be waiting for unsuspecting drivers to fail to yield
to the stop signs. There could be some lunatics
riding around without their lights on to hit a fool-
ish driver failing to stop dt a four-way-stop. These
could have been factored into the decision of
whether to stop or not but not likely to happen
(although possible). No, I stopped because the big
red sign said, "STOP". That was the right thing to
How often do we remember that the reason we
do certain things or we do not do certain things is
not because it is a safe thing to do or because of
what other people may think we do what we do
because it is the right thing to do? Whatever hap-
pened to that moral code of the white hat and the
good guy winning because what was right was
right and what was wrong was wrong no matter
who was watching? Who decided that we did not
live by the "rightness" of a thing?
Abel offered his sacrifice (in contrast to Cain)
because it was the right thing to do (Genesis 4;
Hebrews 11:4; 1 John 3:12). Joseph would not
fall prey to the temptation of Potiphar's wife be-
cause it was not the right thing to do. He clarified
the situation when he said, "How then can I do
this great wickedness, and sin against God?"
(Genesis 39:9). Joseph did'what was right be-
cause what was right was right and what was
wrong was wrong. Could he have thought to him-

self, "Who would know?" It did not matter to him
because he knew what the right thing to do was
and he obeyed.
David committed adultery with Bathsheba and
murdered her husband to cover up the deed '(2
Samuel 12). When Nathan confronted the King
with his sin, David did not argue about his weak-
ness, his social problem, his lack of self-control
nor did he blame it on anyone else. "I have
sinned against the Lord" (2 Samuel 12:13). He
knew what was right and he knew what was
wrong. He did what was right. The apostle Paul
withstood the apostle Peter to his face, "because
he was to be blamed" (Galatians 2:11). Peter was
rebuked publicly for being a hypocrite in eating
with the Gentiles on some occasions but when cer-
tain men came from James, "he withdrew and
separated himself, fearing those who were of the
circumcision" (Galatians 2:12). Paul knew what
the right thing to do was and he did not let any
sense of Peter's apostleship keep him from doing
what needed to be done. It is just as important to
recognize the humility of Peter in accepting the
charge brought against him and know what was
right was right and what he did was wrong peri-
Have you been given too much change from a
cashier and taken it back because it is the right
thing to do? Did you return the lost item because
it was the right thing to do? How often do we ad-
mit we are wrong when we know we are wrong -
when it is the right thing to do? The world does
not live by that standard. Morality is relative to
the situation. Children of God live by the standard
of what is right is right and what is wrong is
wrong. Cheating on our taxes is not a loop-hole, it
is a sin. Lying to make it in the business world is
wrong. Looking at the answers to your friends test
paper is wrong. Doing what is right is the right
thing to do. Jesus said, "But let your 'Yes' be
'Yes,' and your 'No,' be 'No.' For whatever is
more then these is from the evil one" (Matthew

Legionnaires, Families, Friends:
.Before we get into this week's article. I would like. to praise all of
our legion posts in the hurricane effected area. They are doing a
super job in assisting in their communities in every way possible.
The district and state organizations are also pitchingin along with the
national 'organization. It's great to be a member of the Legion
Family. That being said, I did extensive research on the internet to
see what the ACLU was doing for the relief effort. I could find
NOTHING. I didn't see any ACLU trucks in the .area or ACLU
people delivering ice or food. Several of the organizations that are
.complaining .. Didn't see them there;
The only thing I saw 'from the ACLU was an article: ACLU call on
President Bush to keep Politics out of the Katrina Relief legislation.
Now for this weeks Legion Statement on 'the ACLU. Legion
addresses ACLU Legal Abuse.
The American Legion forged their solidarity against legal abuse.
and secular cleansing of American'family values and religious
symbols by the ACLU and other organizations.
The 'American Legion, representing- 2.7 million members
unanimously passed Resolution 139 that calls upon Congress to
amend the practice of using taxpayer-funded attorney fees by claims
under the Equal Access to Justice.
"The 1976 Civil Rights Attorney's Fee Awards Act was much
needed legislation, but in recent years, certain groups have abused the
congressional intent of this public law in 'Establishment Clause'
lawsuits against the Boy Scouts of America,: the Ten
Commandments, and now veterans' memorials," said Thomas P.
Cadmus, National Commander of The American Legion. "And it's
time to fix it !"
'Exorbitant attorney fees awarded by Courts to be paid by
American taxpayers has become the newest 'Sword-of Damocles'
strategically employed by organizations like the American Civil
Liberties Union (ACLU) to coerce settlements by cities, counties,
states, and large organizations like the Boy Scouts' of America nd the
Department of Defense by suits and threats of lawsuits against any
public expression of America's religious history, heritage, and
values," Cadmus said. 'When out-of-court settlements are more cost
effective than the judicial process, then the system is clearly broken.".
Rees Lloyd, a past commander of American Legion San Gorgonio
Post 448 in Banning, Calif., worked' for the ACLU at one time and is
very familiar with how the ACLU mind-set and litigation strategies
"Using taxpayers' dollars to pay these court-ordered attorney fees,
especially when attacking established, traditional American values is
absurd." Lloyd said. "The list of'victims continues to grow Los
Angeles County; the cities of San Diego and Redlands in California,
the school boards in Chicago, Ill., and Portland, Or., the Village of
Castleton, Department of Housing and Urban Development,
Department of Defense, Ten Commandments cases in Kentucky,
Te\as. and-Alabama, and even a Veterans' Memorial in Mojave
Desern. Who %w ill be the next victim ?
"When the mere threat of attorney's fees is so 'severe that large
organizations fear the consequences, then imagine the power -and
chilling effect it has on local.elected officials faced with the threat of
:court-ordered, taxpayer-paid attorney fees if they do not surrender to
ACLU demands to cease sponsorship of Boy Scouts, or to destroy
religious symbols like the Ten Commandments." Lloyd said.
Cummin's Tools will be at'the post on Saturday, October 1st, from
7:30 AM to 7 PM. You'all come .
Please remember our troops everywhere in the world and say a
prayer for their safe return. Help the victims of mother nature's rath.
I was told that Jay .Leno made the statement on the 'Tonight' show,
"See what happens when you take GOD out of everything" I'm sure
this is not the case, but I'm sure he is not happy with the way he is
being treated. IT IS TIME TO FIX IT !
Shelby McKinney

We enjoyed having Ramona
Barber, John Deakins, Bob
Rich and Buddy Leaptrot who
came from Hiers-Baxley Fu-
neral Home to help us under-
stand what has to go on in
times of need. No one knows
when they will need help and
they gave us so much infor-
mation. They also enjoyed our
pot luck dinner at noon.
On Tuesday Greg Salvey
was out with six boys to help
me with all it takes to keep the
museum going. It does take
time and work as we are start-
ing to get more people coming
our way.
S We do have much going on
in October. The World War II
veterans will be coming in for
lunch and a get together on
October 13'h. That night will
be Law Appreciation Night
Sand we hope to see more come
who will come to the Pineland
Center to honor the men and
women who keep us safe.'
.Lunch was so good, Meat
loaf, creamed corn,,cauli-
flower, potato salad, slaw,
green bean casserole, rice, per-
simmons, lemon cake, brown-
ies, cream cake, and so much
more. We had 14 members
and four guests.'

Enjoying the meetings is half the fun. The other half is having a purpose.

The regular monthly meeting
of the Gilchrist County AARP
Chapter 2133 took place on
Tuesday, September 20th in the
Trenton Community Center.
Dr. Geneva Cornwell presided
over a well-attended, involved
and sometimes high-spirited
gathering with great finesse and
tolerance. Let it not be said that
senior citizens are backward at
coming forward when their fu-
tures are being debated in
Washington, D.C. or Tallahas-
see or even in the county court-
house. With Norman Conti
following the proposed Medi-
care changes and the new Leg-

islative Chairman, County
Commissioner Randy Durden,
to keep us up to date with any
proposed plans for Gilchrist
County we are in a strong posi-
tion to understand what is going
on in the areas thatimost affect
us. Only radical changes to So-
cial Security could affect us
more and we are confident that
the AARP directors and staff,
would keep us well informed
about those.
We have some very dedicated
and well informed people in our
group. We may be retired from
the daily grind of earning a liv-
ing, but we are not resting on
our laurels nor are we selfish in

demanding that our needs be
met. There are many waiting to
follow us and we are trying to
prepare a satisfactory retirement
for them. Just as the founders
of AARP saw a need to organi-
zation older Americans to un-
derstand the value of the ballot
box when it came to claiming a
piece of the pie for a secure fu-
ture, we are determined that our
voices be heard in places where
it matters, It is necessary to
belong to the AARP to become
a member in full standing in a
chapter. We recommend that'
you attend one of our meetings
as a guest in order to see and
feel the value of belonging to a

large group of local citizens
who are determined to secure
their future and have a good
time while doing so. Just one of
our eating meetings will con-
vince you that some of the best
cooks in the county are chapter
members. Iris Roberts,
Meveree Carlisle-Pope and oth-
ers will be glad to assist you in
applying for membership.
On a personal note, I wish to
sincerely thank Harold Pope for
all the years he has helped us to
struggle through the' compli-
cated legislation that has been
proposed and sometimes passed
in Congress and in Tallahassee
as well as all the hours he and

Students At Trenton Elementary

Launch Rockets

Friday, September 16, 2005,
was Rocket Day for students in
Mrs. Glenn's fourth grade, Mrs.
Hof's fifth grade, and Ms. Wil-
liamson's fourth and fifth grade
students. Mrs. Schofield's
third-graders and Mrs.
McKenzie's. second-graders
were invited to watch the
launch. The whole afternoon
was spent learning how to build
a more stable rocket, how to at-'
tach nosecones and fins, and
how to launch a rocket as high
as it would go.,
Students built water rockets
from one and two liter plastic
bottles, poster board, construc-
tion paper, and lots of tape.
Once the rockets were built,
they were partially filled with
water, taken outside 'to the
"launch pad," and attached to an
air pump mounted on a tripod.
Students then pumped the rock-
ets up to between 40 and 80 PSI
depending on their strength. As
the rockets were launched one
after another, students cheered
and watched to see if the next
rocket would go even higher.
Trenton Elementary students
participated in this fun and edu-
cational activity thanks to a pro-
gram called Project Launch and

3,600 competitors in 48.events
from nearly all 50 states.
Charity Ware, Brad Caves,
and Orie Sheppard were eligible
to compete in the Medical

a 50 question written exam,
which students must pass with
at least 70 percent and score in
the top 20 places in order to
move to Round 2.' Round 2
consists of individual and team
questions presented orally by a
panel of judges. Each correct
answer is assigned a rating of 1-
10 points. This freshman team
not only successfully competed
in Round 1, but went on to place
in the top 10 places nationwide
in Round 2.

Free To Good Home?
The slogan, "'Free to a Good
Home," is constantly seen in the
pages of our local newspapers,
Internet message boards, and
community newsletters,-but this
phrase can attract more than
prospective pet adopters. The
sad reality is that animal lovers
are not the only people actively
seeking pets. Adopted animals
frequently end up, abused ne-
glected, '`or most commonly,
sold to research labs for grue-

some experimentation, used as
"training dummies" for pit bull
dog fights, or even fed as live
bait to large reptiles or large
meat eating animals.
This is very real and it hap-
pens everyday. While there are
many good people out there
who are simply looking for a
nice pet whom they can give a
loving home, there are many
devious people who don't care
about the animal and just want it
for some evil purpose, simply
because it is free.
The major challenge in giving
away or selling your pet isn't
'finding a home, but finding a
good home in which the pet's
physical and emotional needs
are fulfilled in a loving envi-
ronment. By exercising caution
and taking a few preventive
steps, you can ensure that your
pet finds a worthy home.
Protect your pet by knowing
what and who to watch out for.
Your pet has a lot of potential,
either as a loved pet or an ex-
periment, or pit bull training
bait. "A total of approximately
,100,000 dogs and cats are used
for experimentation in the US
each year," according the Hu-
mane Society of the United
Class B dealers are animal
dealers, licensed and regulated
by the United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA), to act
as a middleman between those
selling animals and those buy-
ing.' Class B dealers are allowed
to sell animals that are from
"random sources." Which
means, they don't have to ac-'
count for the animals' origins.
Unfortunately, instead of
buying from specialized breed-
ers, some class B dealers buy
from unlicensed, unregulated
"bunchers" who acquire animals
from random sources, such as a
"free to good home ads."
The scheme works like this:
"Bunchers"' routinely read
newspapers, message boards,
etc., looking for "free to good
home" ads. The 'buncher" then
contacts the person giving away
the pet and pretends to be a se-
rious adopter. Bunchers are
usually well-rehearsed and.
know exactly what to say. They
don't look like "shady" charac-
ters and almost always appear to
be normal in appearance, male,
female, younger. older, etc.
SArione can be'ia 'bincher.
SSometimes, they will elen bring
children \ith them to meet the
animal, and even another pet, to
make them look legitimate! The
buncher shows, up and spends a
few minutes with the pet, and
will often give a story about
how "my cat or dog just died'
and I am so upset, I want a re-
placement" or something to that
effect. You of course, feel sorry
for that person and give your
animal a\ aF for free.
The buncher then takes the
animal to the Class B dealer,
who in turn sells it to a hospital,
research laboratory, pharma-
ceutical company, etc.. where it
is used in a gruesome experi-
ment. Bunchers get anywhere
from $25 and up, per animal
they sell to a dealer, who will
get a lot more from the place he
or she sells it to. Quick and
Easy money for the buncher, as
there is a constant slipply of

your pet truly needs a new
home. Get advice from your lo-
cal Humane Society on animal
behavior and retraining. It
might be that with some training
or adjusting, you would be able
to keep your pet. If a new home
is a must, first ask trustworthy
friends, neighbors, relatives or
co-workers if they are interested
in your pet. If this is unsuccess-
ful, formulate an adoption pro-
cedure prior to advertising your
Do not give your animal to
the first nice person that comes
by. Anyone can act nice. If
they're intent on adopting your
animal from you, they should
have to do a little bit of work.
1. Ask for two forms of ID,
with matching addresses, and a
2. Do a screening interview-
ask a lot of questions.
3. Get a vet reference and
confirm the vet is legitimate.
Ask the vet if he feels this new
prospective adoptor is responsi-
ble and would give your pet a
good, loving home.
4. Contact the landlord to en-
sure that your cat or dog is not
only wanted, but allowed if it is
going to a rental situation.
5. Create a contract between
you and the potential adopter
stating that if the animal cannot
be kept, that it will be returned
to your possession.
6. Always insist on bringing
the animal to the adoptor, and
make sure it is their address
(many people.have been taken
to a.nice house with a fenced in
yard, to later discover that the
person that took their pet didn't
even live there). Any legitimate
adoptor will not hesitate at you
coming to their home. If the
adoptor resists or balks at this
idea, do not adopt the animal'to
that person: More than likely
they have something to hide.
Don't accept an excuse, "I live
too far, it's easier if I just come
to you." If that person lived too
far, why couldn't they find an
animal closer to home? Never
go alone to a person's house.
Always take someone with you.
7. And finally (and most im-
portantly) ask for a $30 or more
cash-only donation, which you
can then say is .being donated to
a local animal shelter. This is
the quickest way to spot a
buncher as it cuts into their
"profit." They want the animal
for free. If he or she says, "I
don't ha e the money on me"
direct him to the nearest ATM.
If he offers a check, say "No,
cash only." If he says "money
is tight right now" then say,
how can you afford to take care
of the cat or dog in the first
There are other variables but
these, are the main things to ask
,or look for. Remember, if
something doesn't seem right, it
probably isn't. You do have the
right to refuse the adoption.
Clear identification also acts
as a strong deterrent for bunch-
ers. The presence of a micro-'
chip identification. or even just
a collar and tag, "though these
are easily discarded" proves that
the animal belongs to someone
other than a lab. Once you have
found a potential adopter, mi-
cro-chipping your dog or cat in
the new owners name can be in-
cluded in the adoption price.
Use local resources to help'
you in finding a new home.

also involved cleaning and

Placing your ad where consci-

potential adopters, you've al-

your beloved pet.
Is it a lot of work to place
your pet in a new loving home?
You bet it is! But isn't it better
than your pet falling into the

One of the reasons that Hul-

agencies charge adoption fees is
not only to get some of the
money back that was spent on
the animal for vet bills and up

Bits & Pieces From

Of North Gilchrist
Wednesday, September 21st,
started out much like 'every
other morning. It was just a lit-
tle cooler. The love bugs were
as thick as thieves and our cars
and % indshields had become the
final resting place for thousands
that \would be replaced by a tiew
-crop'ot those bothersonie crt-
ters. The sk) uas bright blue
and filled with whitemounds of
clouds that would d later be re-
placed by a black sk\ filled wlth :
rain laden clouds that would
wash the land clean. The, dust
that had covered everything \was
gone. and for awhile. at least,
you could actually see the color.
of things... the whole world was
not a dusty gray.
Twenty-four: Jo ful Hearts
were present and it sounded like
124 as we greeted one another
and exchanged the latest'news
and shared ideas aand projects
completed at home. E\elyn
Wood brought in a pillow she
had made. It was just lovely
with its appliqued silk flowers.

Best People. Best Service. Best Bank.

Evelyn is so creative and always
has something great to share.
Barbara Strom, who is out to set
a world's record on just how
many: quilts one can make,
brought in two more that she's
finished. I believe that makes
seven. that she's done in the last
month...correct me if'I'm
wrrorig. They are'for grand-
babies and they are all so cute.
You'll see pictures later.
Mary Lou Ryder, Evelyn
Wood, Elaine Nemeth, onn
Mlangone,'and .BarbaraA.Strom
were all cha'nting like magpies
as they quilted n our club quilt.
It is coming right ajong and it is
'"oh" so different. The club
quilt coming up next is the
"Snowball" pattern and we al-
ready have quite a few squares
finished. Heidi Kamp has made
more than her share and if we
have enough we are considering
making a couple. of -pillow
shams to match the quilt.
Bonnie Edwards dropped by
for a bit of chit-chat as she was
off to Gainesille to take our
mother to the doctors. Lately
she neter can make it and we
miss seeing her happ> face.
Seems like a lot of us always
end up at 'the doctors on

Wednesdays...guess we "are"
getting old.
The Swedish weavers were
hot to trot. Jackie Moore, Lu
Rowland, Ruth Wilkerson,
Cathy Strom and Alice Binns
were all in their places with
sunshiny faces going through'
the paces. Alice, sweet soul
that she is, has volunteered to
take on my poor unfinished
Swedish weaving. Between her
and what Cathy did on it...who
knows, my bed just might get
one yet.
The "amen corner" was in
full swing and Judy Pflueger is
a part of that group as well.
Judy was crocheting baby hats,
Alberta was crocheting squares
for a new afghan, she finished
the other one, Paulene Martin
was also crocheting but she
didn't know what. How's that
for a senior moment? Ann
Taylor was knitting those lovely
dish cloths that I use as doilies
or under hot dishes because
they're too nice to wash dishes
with...in my opinion.
Sylvia Arthur was doing
something called Tunesian cro-
cheting while Rita Simcoe
worked on a pillow she's quilt-
ing. Leona Wirta was weaving
a Christmas decoration from a
palmetto frond. She's going to
teach all of us how to do it in
the near future.
Diana Lynn is still working
away on her counted cross-
stitch which is just precious and
I worked on my pillowcase that
I'm embroidering. Cindy Wil-
liams is embroidering pillow-
cases as well. We'll see who
gets done first. Jane Boyd has a

number of old stamped squares
that belonged to her mother:
Some she and her mother em-
broidered years ago, some still
need to be completed. She. has
all the old original floss and she
plans to finish them and then
make them into quilts: It will
'be a lot of work and love that
will go into these quilts. She
has tw;o different sets so. she
will markettwp quilit-. 1;
Well, as usual, the ,time,
passed quickly and we'put aside
our work and had lunch. Some
brought, their lunch, .others
bought lunch of salad, spaghetti
and meat balls'with garlic bread
and tea for a dollar donation to
the fire department. Of course,
%\e also had ice cream and
birthday cae.for dessert.
.'And speaking of birthdays,
we celebrated the September,
babes. Ann Taylor. Alberta
Swanner and Rita Simcoe.
Cathy decided we needed to let
them be "Queen for a IDay",and
has made up crowns for each
one to wear for the day. The
oldest in the group gets a little
something extra and that's all
I'm gonna say. Thanks Cathy,
it's a great and fun thing to do.
Soon, we said our good-b)es
and scurried off to our homes
before- thed' darkening sky

If you only want to read about
our group of Jo\ ful Hearts stop
reading now because the rest is
just some thoughts or something
to think about. :. `"I
I have noticed that a task al-
\ways seems much easier when,
my heart is really in it:. Maybe
that's what it means in Colos-
sians 3:23-24, "Whatever you
do, work at it with -all your
heart, as working for the Lord,
not for, men, since you know
that you will receive an inheri-
tance from the Lord as a reward.
It is the Lord Christ you are
Certainly quilts are a labor of
, love and most are given away as
gifts. .gifts of love. Tasks done
for others always seems to go
easier and bring greater satis-
faction. Indeed, it is more
,blessed to give than to receive.
In the world today there are,
so many in need. Sometimes
the need is great, some times
it's as simple as a phone call, a
card, a hug, a prayer. We can,
each of us, accept the task of
caring, and you'll be surprised
how :easy it is when your heart
is really in, it.
Our next regular meeting will
be Wednesday, October 5th at
9:00 a.m. at the fire station'on
CR 138. And, here's a little
quilting tip...Do not use red
thread for basting. It often
leaves a faint hint of red on light

colored fabrics after it's re-

also collected and treated.
A Nutrient Management Plan
(NMP) has been developed for this
facility, based on an average of
,346,000 gallons per day for barn
clean-out, sprinklers, and milking
parlor flush and includes 4 waste
storage ponds located throughout
the production area, and 267 acres
for wastewater irrigation. The stor-
age ponds are designed to contain a
25-year, 24-hour storm event, based
on a 23.7 acre production area.
Clean water from roof run-off is di-
verted away from the waste collec-
tion system.
The system is designed as fol-
lows: wastewater from the freestall
barns and main milking' parlor will
flow by gravity or be pumped to a
sand separator and then into a two
celled solids separator. Solids re-
. moved from the separator will be
stored on a concrete pad, and will
be hauled off-site. Filtrate from the
separator will gravity flow to the
first waste storage pond (WSP1).
Wastewater from the secondary
milking center is collected in the
second waste storage pond (WSP2)
and is used to flush freestall barns
which then discharge into WSP1.
WSP2 has an emergency overflow
into WSP1. The third waste storage
pond (WSP3) collects wastewater
from the calf barns. The facility
may construct an additional waste
storage pond (WSP4) to provide
additional storage capacity and
treatment if funds become avail-
able. The facility is located at lati-
tude 29043'34.34"N, longitude

Florida's sea turtles and

ate the work that tax collectors
across the state are doing to
raise public awareness and
funding for these species."
In other news, the Wildlife
Foundation of Florida, Inc.,

counted from the Water and
Sewer Fund.
The new city manager, who
has been with the City of Tren-
ton three weeks now, has been
working extensively on the pro-
posed 2005-2006 budget. "The
solution to the deficit is compli-
cated and inevitably requires.
cuts in expenditures. However,
innovative usage of revenue al-
lows a degree of flexibility," the
city manager explained to the
The city manager presented
the board with a four-page ex-
planation of how. the staff was
able to review the proposed
budget and make the necessary
revisions to present the budget
to the commission.
In the discussion Commis-
sioner'Tim Kinsey asked how a
$170,000 deficit could have
gotten by the auditor. There is
not an actual $170,000 .deficit,

a break-even basis, and actually
loses money annually. He ex-
plained the residential rate of
$8.88 a month is very inexpen-
Commissioner Kinsey ex-
plained that he was not in favor
of increasing the rates to resi-
dential customers. "There are a
lot of residents in the commu-
nity who are living on fixed in-
comes that can't afford an in-
crease in service rates at this
time," Kinsey explained. The
City of Trenton just recently in-
creased the rates for the water
service to residential customers.
Commissioner Kinsey ex-
plained that the City of
Branford currently allows the
residential customers to pur-
chase containers from the mu-
nicipality. If the resident needs
additional containers for their
refuse, the municipality sells the
containers to the resident. The
municipality charges a monthly
service fee to pick up the refuse
from each customer.
Trenton Mayor 'Pete
Randolph explained communi-
ties in this area charge from
$12.00 to $20.00 a month for
residential garbage service.
Commissioner Jonathan
Kincaid asked the city manger
in his rev iei of the budget if he
felt the City of Trenton was top
heavy in administrative salaries.
The city. manager explained
that in his short 'time of being in.
Trenton, he has not closely ex-
amined the budget regarding

administrative salaries.
The board discussed the cur-
rent funding of $25,000 that
Trenton receives from Gilchrist
County regarding fire service
outside the municipality. The
board discussed that they would
address the possibility of re-
questing a set fee for each call

The board also discussed the
increase in revenues that the
City of Trenton is currently not
receiving from the recently an-
nexed ,areas to the city. The
board requested Attorney Lang
to draft a letter to Progress En-
ergy (the Trenton municipal
electric service provider) seek-
ing the electric company to col-
lect a municipal service tax
from electric customers that
have been annexed into the city

plained that, when the City of

First Annual
Gala To Be Held
October 1,
7:00 P.M.
(Continued from Page One)
Bell Elementary and Trenton
Elementary School will be re-
cipients of the proceeds which
will be used to purchase class-
room libraries and supplemental
reading resources needed to
make students' reading classes
as "print rich" as possible.
"Talking and reading aloud to a
newborn through preschool
years develops crucial brain
structures, builds vocabulary,
adds knowledge, and lengthens
attention span, while teaching
how to use and appreciate
books." (Fielding, Kerr & Ros-
ier, 1998). Twenty minutes
spent reading with a child can
increase the child's chances of
1) reading on grade level in
third grade, 2) high school
graduation (Lloyd 1978), and 3)
increased lifetime earnings
'(World Almanac and Book of
Facts, 1998). Learning to read
is the most powerful skill a stu-
dent can learn as this one com-
plex skill can predict a student's
future in school and in life.
Individual Gala tickets are a
donation of $50. However, if
you would like to become a
gold table patron with a dona-
tion of $1,000, you will receive
eight complimentary) tickets. A
donation of $500 \will make you

tickets. As a bronze table pa-
tron, with a donation of $250,

mentary tickets.

tending. please contact Terry

tacular event.

working to eliminate 'poverty

around the world.'- Habitat in-
vites people of all backgrounds,
races, and religions to build
houses together with families in
need. Habitat for Humanity
does not give homes to people.
Individuals who will receive a
bHabitat home will not only help
build their home and the homes
of other families, but they will
also have a down payment to
meet and a mortgage payment to
keep up. Habitat houses are
sold to partner families at no
profit and are financed with
seven to 30-year affordable no
Interest loans. A typical three
bedroom Habitat Home will
cost approximately $44,000 in
our area to build. As that
home's partner family pays their
mortgage, the funds are reused
to fund the next home and so
on. Luckily, as an affiliated

Habitat organization our group
will also receive certain "perks"
from various businesses who
work with Habitat for Humanity
International. This will allow
them to receive many tools and
equipment needed in building a
home and various appliances for
the home at no charge. But
overall nothing in life is free!
Habitat for Humanity's work
is accomplished at the c6mmu-

cal area. Each is responsible for
fund-raising, building site se-
lection, partner family selection
and support, house construction
and mortgage servicing. Be-
cause of all that is involved
Habitat for Humanity of Su-
wannee Valley, Inc. is always
looking for more volunteers.
You can volunteer to help on a
committee, home building and
fund-raising; there is a lot to do.
They can also use donations
from the community in the form
of land, building materials,
building labor, monetary, etc.
Susan Bartsch, president of
the Habitat for Humanity of
Suwannee Valley, Inc. ex-
plained that right now their
largest focus is getting a good
parcel of land for the site of
their first home. There is no
minimum acreage and your do-
nation is tax deductible. Susan
also said they are planning to
distribute applications for part-
ner families in about six weeks
and will hold meetings in each

the application process. If you

CR 232 East Reduced
To 45 MPH
Gilchrist County Transpor-
tation Department Superinten-
dent Justin Watson addressed
the Gilchrist County Commis-
sion on September 8th to advise
the board of a request for a
speed reduction on the western
portion of CR 232 east near
North Florida lolstein Dairy;.
Watson explained to the
Board that the Florida Highway
Patrol has studied the western
portion of CR 232 from the in-
.tersection of US 129 to the in-
tersection of 15t Way and they
are seeking a speed reduction to
45 mph. The ,Transportation
Superintendent explained in
detail the highway patrol re-
ported that this area of the road
has numerous hills and very
,tight S-curves that could be very
dangerous at high speeds.
The 1.65 miles of pavement
is currently ratedat 55 mph.
"Safety is important to all of
us," explained Don Bennick,
managing owner ofNorth Flor-
ida Holstein Dairy. The main
entrance to the large farm is lo-
cated in this stretch of county
The Board discussed this is-
sue and determined this area is a
very busy agriculture area.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to propose the
change of speed limit from 55
Smph to 45 mph. Commissioner
Tommy Langford gave a second
to the motion. -The board voted -
4-0 in favor of the motion.
