Gilchrist Sheriffs Deputy Is Involved In

Traffic Accident On CR 232 At Gas Pipeline

Construction Site


A Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Deputy traveling west on CR
232 Monday morning, just be-
fore daylight, collided into the
right side of a piece of heavy
equipment that was being driven
at a slow speed along the west-
bound lane of CR 232.
The piece of heavy equip-
ment was involved in the con-
struction of a gas pipeline ex-
tension from the Alachua
County line west, near the North
Florida Holstein Dairy.
Gilchrist County permitted
the construction of an extension
of a gas pipeline for Florida
Rock Industries to receive natu-
ral gas through Gilchrist
County. The construction of
this pipeline extension began
near North Florida Holstein al-
most two weeks ago.
Gilchrist County Road De-
partment officials told the Gil-
christ County Commission that
the construction site has been
operating with a very minimal
.amount of safety equipment in-
cluding flagmen, flashing mark-
ers and highway construction
warning signage.
'The construction permit al-
lows the construction to be done
from 7:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m.
The Florida Highway Patrol re-
ported that the accident oc-
curred at 6:40 a.m. Monday
morning. The front of the sher-
iff's cruiser collided with the
heavy equipment that was trav-
eling on a portion of the high-


way and the north shoulder. The
deputy applied his brakes and
veered to the right to avoid the
slow-moving equipment before
impacting his left front to the
Right rear of the loader. The
deputy and the driver of the
front-end loader were not seri-
ously injured in this accident.
Florida Highway Patrol Ser-
geant David K. Roberts is con-
ducting the investigation in-
volving the sheriff's deputy.
Gilchrist County Sheriff David
Turner reported that the deputy
has not been charged in this ac-
cident.
Mickey Owens, a spokesman
for Big Warrior Corporation, the
contractor constructing the
pipeline extension, met with the
Gilchrist County Commission
Monday afternoon in the Public
Meeting.
The road department super-
intendent explained that the
construction superintendent on
the site had not been very coop-
erative when communicating
with the road department stiff.
"The accident that occurred
Monday morning was uncalled
for, the employees decided to
move a side boom tractor and
that's when the accident oc-
curred," Owens explained to the
board.
Owens explained that the
road construction supervisor
and the heavy equipment op-
erator who were on the con-
struction site Monday morning


This Gilchrist County Sheriffs Office cruiser was totaled
as a result of an accident on C-232 East Monday
morning. The cruiser collided with a side boom loader

speed before daylight.


should not have been working at
the time. He explained that the
company held a safety meeting
.Monday morning and the two
employees were scheduled to
attend. Owens pointed out that
the two men are no longer
working with the company.
Owens told the board that a
new construction superintendent
would be on the job site Tues-
day morning. Owens asked the


road department supervisor
what the company needed to do
to keep from having further
problems on the CR 232 con-
struction site.

struction and Management rep-
resenting Florida Rock Indus-
tries, met with the County
Commission Monday evening

Congressman Nelson Tells

Tri-County Residents That

Alternative Fuel Resources

And Power Conservation Are

Vital


By Anna Wild
On Monday, October 3, 2005
our Tri-County area had a spe-
cial visitor. Senior U.S. Senator
Bill Nelson (D) paid a special
visit to the residents of Gil-
christ, Levy and Dixie counties
to let us know about some
things he is working on and to
get our feedback on what is im-
portant to us. He began this
visit in Lady Lake on Monday
morning and had several stops
on his agenda by Tuesday night
where he ended in Jacksonville.
Then Wednesday morning he
headed back to Washington
D.C. to work.
He came to Fanning Springs
State Park Monday evening and
joined visitors in a Bar-B-Q
dinner catered by Bar-B-Q
Bill's in Chiefland. Dinner was
accompanied by some fine
Bluegrass music by Big Cy-
press.


Sen. Nelson shared some of
his family history and his expe-
rience on the space shuttle with
the crowd of about 60 people.
Then he got down to business
and let everyone know that he
was aware of the issues con-
cerning gas prices. He empha-
sized that we are not alone and
he is genuinely concerned be-
cause he has heard about senior
citizens on fixed incomes that
are unable to afford to drive to
their doctors. He is also con-
cerned about citizens who work
hard earning $20,000-$30,000 a
year who are now having trou-
ble paying for the gas to get to
their jobs. He has asked the
White House to request that the
oil companies voluntarily freeze
oil prices like they did after the
September 11'" tragedy. Price
gouging is a true concern and he
wants everyone to know he is
fighting to keep our energy
),


costs affordable. Sen. Nelson
confirmed that we are having a
real energy crisis, but we cannot
drill ourselves out of the prob-
lem.
He won his first filibuster
back in June 2005 against the
oil lobbyists trying to drill off
the shores of Florida. He ex-
plained' that the geology proves
that there is very little oil where
they want to drill and the areas
they are looking at are also the
areas that the military use for
various types of training and re-
search and is restricted air
space. He emphasizes our need
to become less dependant on
foreign fuel but not by drilling.
He offered several alternative
ways of lowering our depend-
ency on others such as increas-
ing ethanol production. Ethanol
can be used in all gas burning
vehicles and can be made from

The Gilchrist County
Cattlemen's Association
honored the Jerry Wright family
with the Outstanding Cattleman
award on Thursday, September
29th during their annual meeting.
The meeting was held in the
Trenton Elementary School
Cafeteria and a prime steak
dinner was served to the 89
members and guests attending
the program. GroMore and
Nutrena Feed of Trenton
sponsored the steak dinner.
. The Outstanding Cattlemen
award presented to Jerry Wright
and family is a tribute to the
outstanding work they have
done. Jerry's interest in cattle
began when his dad, Wendell
Wright opened a feedlot in
Marion County. He later moved
to Gilchrist County and opened
a feedlot where North Florida
Holsteins Dairy is now located.
In 1995 Jerry purchased land
between Trenton and Newberry.
He cleared and developed a
grazing system and then stocked
it with cattle. He has selected

Gilchrist County Remembers When ...


cSou/t ern

C.O*O.K*I*N*G


By Cindy Jo Ayers

Last week my best buddy
Beth Davis and I escaped for a
few days. We traveled north-
west to Paducah, Kentucky to
visit the National Quilt Mu-
seum. This museum features
over a hundred of the finest
quilts I have ever seen. Some of
these quilts have amazingly fine
hand quilting. Beth and I took a
break after an hour to rest our
eyes, no kidding we had studied
the workmanship on these quilts
until we had to break for lunch.
Paducah is a pretty neat place.
The town sits on the riverbank
where the Tennessee and Ohio
rivers merge. We spent the
night in a bed and breakfast
above shops on a river front
street. The group of two story
brick buildings were over a
hundred years old. At one time
the building we stayed in
housed a marine supply store.
Early Friday morning I woke
up to the' honking sound of Ca-

along with his proposal.
I want to compliment
Commissioner. Langford for
trying to do what this board told'
the group of taxpayers they
would do and that was to
resurface this road. I want to
compliment the four members
of the board that voted in
support of the motion.
I: have questioned the
honesty and integrity of some
members, of this board in the
past. I am glad that they did step
forward and do what they told a
group of residents. they would.
do.
As far as Commissioner
Gentry's vote to put the road on
the SCRAP list as a priority
project, the board received a
verbal explanation on Monday
that the county would have two
roads funded for the 2006-07
SCRAP program. This is, a total
of five roads over a three-year
period that DOT District 2 has
approved to resurface in
Gilchrist County.'
I feel the county is moving
Sin the' right direction. The board
needs to continue to work to
determine what roads need to be
repaired, and resurfaced and go
forward as the funding is
available.
I don't think that the county
should stop doing necessary
paving projects in order to pave
1-10 ,miles of graded road- a
year. I also know for a fact that
'there are: many' roads in
Gilchrist County that life-long
residents would rather see
remain lime rock grades 'instead
of the roadway being turned
into a high-speed flyway. The
increased mileage of paved
roads will require a greater
demand for the Sheriffs Office
to enforce speed limits in the
rural areas of the county.


nadian geese flying past the
window. I have to admit it was
pretty exciting for a Florida girl
to see that "V" of geese passing
by and landing on the river. Mr.
Clark of Lewis and Clark fame
owned the area of Kentucky
where Paduch is located back
when it was a new frontier.
Beth and I enjoyed exploring
the many antique and quilt
shops in the historic downtown
area. River trade has been the
main commerce for this area for
years and they even have a river
heritage museum.
On Friday afternoon we ar-
rived in French Lick, Indiana,
O.K., O.K., I know only Beth
and I could find a place called,
French Lick. The people there
tell this story about how the
town got its name. French trap-/
pers settling in that area and the
game came into the settlement
to lick minerals, which accu-
mulated around the natural min-
eral springs, located there.
Now, I know I have you
wondering why we traveled to
Indiana in. the first place. We,
went way up there to attend a
quilting retreat where we
learned to dye fabric and design
a really neat quilt.
I didn't eat in any really
memorable restaurants while I
was gone but the quilting
teacher who lives in French
Lick cooked supper for us one
night during the three-day re-
treat. I have to tell you I had
never ever eaten or for that
matter heard of ham loaves.
Those folks up there grind up
perfectly good cured hams and
pat them, out into little loaves
and bake them. It looked kinda
like a mini meat loaf. Surpris-
ingly enough it wasn't too bad,
considering the fact that it was
after all Yankee food.
There were 11 women in this
class, a couple from California,
several .fr Minnespta',anl a
couple of northern ladies who
now\ live.'in South Florida.
There was even one lady who
lived in Indiana on a farm just a
couple of hours away from
French Lick. Most all of them
really didn't know what to make
of us. For the most.part the
group had not met anyone from
this area of the South, you know
a real Florida "native AKA
cracker." No one they knew had
our accents or for that matter
our over joyous dispositions.
Needless to say we had a
really wonderful time and it was
great fun to just get away for a
few days and do a little quilting.
The quilting retreat was
taught byJ. Phil Beaver and the
following is his cheesecake
recipe.

French Lick, Indiana

Gossip And The Three Gates
(Kent Heaton)


The most powerful weapon in the world is not
a nuclear bomb, a fast airplane, mighty ship, inde-
structible tank or secret weapon of mass destruc-
tion. It is not a very large instrument and in rela-
tion to other parts of its same unit, it is a little
member. Yet, this little member has caused more
wars, death, destruction and unrest in more cases
and times than any other thing in the world.
Since the creation of man, the instrument created
by God for good has been put to evil purposes
with death as its final victory. This deadly foe is
the tongue.
James 3:2-12 says, "For we all stumble in
many things. If anyone does not stumble in
word, he is a perfect man, able also to bridle the
whole body. Indeed, we put bits in horses'
mouths that they may obey us, and we turn their
whole body. Look also at ships: although they
are so large and are driven by fierce winds, they
are turned by a very small rudder wherever the
pilot desires. Even so the tongue is a little mem-
ber and boasts great things. See how great a for-
est a little fire kindles! And the tongue is a fire,
a world of iniquity. The tongue is so set among
our members that it defiles the whole body, and
sets on fire the course of nature; and it is set on
fire by hell. For every kind of beast and bird, of
reptile and creature of the sea, is tamed and has
been tamed by mankind. But no man can tame
the tongue. It is an unruly evil, full of deadly
poison. With it we bless our God and Father,
and with it we curse men, who have been made
in the similitude of God. Out of the same mouth
proceed blessing and cursing. My brethren,
these things ought not to be so. Does a spring
send forth fresh water and bitter from the same
opening? Can a fig tree, my brethren, bear
olives, or a grapevine bear figs? Thus no spring
can yield both salt water and fresh."
The tongue is a fire that destroys everything in
its path when not used properly. One of the most


insidious ways that the tongue is used is gossip.
A gossip -is a person who habitually reveals per-
sonal or sensational facts, often untrue. The heart
of a gossip is evil for they do not seek the good of
the individual but the good of the evil news.
Their heart is defiled with the ungodly love of
talebearing. The wise man had much to say about
those who bore tales in deceit. Proverbs 16:27-
30; 11:9,13; 6:19; 18:8; 20:3,19; 10:18.
Gossips are busybodies and are evil people. (2
Thessalonians 3:11,12) Paul wrote to. Titus in Tit-
us 3:1,2 and exhorted him to "speak evil of no
one." In Ephesians 4:31, Paul describes it as
"evil speaking." Peter told the saints if they had
to suffer, suffer as a Christian and not as a "busy-
body in other people's matters." (1 Peter
4:15,16)
How do you tell a gossip? They are not hard to
find. Their mouths are always wide open! Con-
sider the following taken from "The Arabian."
THREE GATES If you are tempted to reveal a
tale to someone that has been told about another,
make it pass, before you speak, three gates of
gold. These narrow gates: First, "Is it true?"
Then, "Is it needful?" In your mind give truthful
answer. And the next is last and narrowest, "Is it
kind?" And if to reach your lips at last it passes
through these gateways three, then you may tell
the tale, nor fear what the results of speech may
be.
David wrote in Psalm 15:1-3, "LORD, who
may abide in Your tabernacle? Who may dwell
in Your holy hill? He who walks uprightly, and
works righteousness, and speaks the truth in his
heart; He who does not backbite with his tongue,
nor does evil to his neighbor, nor does he take up
a reproach against his friend." Gossip is a sin.
Repent. As someone once said, "No one can keep
the gossipers from gossiping, but all of us can
keep our ears from serving as garbage cans.

A Card Of Thanks
The Senior Class of Bell High

ryone who helped with our 2005

seasonal chicken dinner fund-
raiser was a great success thanks
to the help of some great people.
We also had a lot of great par-
ents and fellow students who0
worked hard selling tickets, pre-
paring and delivering meals. Of
course we cannot forget to thank
everyone' who bought a chicken
dinner. We couldn't have done,
it without you!
Our second place Kiss in-
spired' homecoming float was
also a big hit because of some
very appreciated people. A spe-
cial thanks those who let us use
their home to build our float, for
the use of a'trailer and for pull-
ing the float.
Don't forget to mark your
calendars for our next fund-
raisers. The' dance on Novem-

From The
Bookshelves
Of The Bell
Library
I came past the library on Fri-
day and our volunteers were
working to hook up the second
computer. With this other ma-
chine operating we can give
you, .our patrons, better service
when you come in to use the
Internet.
The book I am reading this
week is Janet Evanovich's
Seven Up. This author was
listed as one of The New York
Times best selling authors. This
is a new writer for me but, as
many of you know, I always
like a good mystery.
I' found a very informative
book in the junior section, Ani-
mal Heroes giving true stories
about how dogs, pigeons,
chimps and horses have served
their masters, many times sav-
ing the lives of these owners.
Yvonne Roberts has written a
very interesting narrative.
Along with the tales of heroism
she reminds us of how animals
were used in outer space ex-
periments on our space ships.
For the beginning readers I
discovered Woollyfoot's Big
Race that will hold your atten-
tion as you learn about some of
the problems he faced. Even the
road signs were a hindrance to
the racers.
We are receiving new donated
books almost every day as well
as some that our volunteers
bring in to share with you.

Veterans, Beware
Of Scam
Veterans are receiving calls
from a company identifying it-
self as the' "Patient Care
Group." This company is
claiming that the veteran's pre-
scriptions are now being dis-
pensed through them and if they
want to continue to receive their
prescriptions, they need to pro-
vide a credit card number.
The VA HAS NOT changed
the process of receiving and
dispensing prescriptions.

4 Pets Sake
Reminder: On Saturday,
October 8th at Papaws, on
Highway 26 in Waccasassa, 4
Pets Sake will hold a huge yard
sale starting at 9:00 a.m. Items
to be sold are: a sofa, loveseat,
washer, windows, dishes,
kitchen chairs, Christmas stuff,
and much, much more.
We have received a veteri-
nary advisory. Apparently re-
searchers of the University of
Florida have found that some
dogs in shelters, humane socie-
ties, boarding facilities, and vet-
erinary clinics are having an
outbreak of canine influenza vi-
rus which causes an acute respi-
ratory infection. The virus is
predominantly in Broward,
Dade, Palm Beach, and Duval
counties.
This canine flu is contagious
to other canines and it mimics
kennel cough. There are two
general clinical syndromes. The
milder disease occurs in most
dogs and they have a cough that
persists for 10 to 21 days.
Many canines have a nasal dis-
charge and a low grade fever.
With the second clinical syn-
drome, which is more severe,.
some dogs have signs of pneu-
monia such as a high fever (104
to 106). k'eeU'ire U .ro keep
you informed' a-timeggoeson.
Until next time be happy just for
the love of them.

Gilchrist School District Takes

On "90% Reading Goal"


Gilchrist County School Superintendent Buddy Vickers is shown reading "Pulling
My Leg" to Mrs. Smithers'first grade class at Trenton Elementary School as part of
The 90% Reading Goal.


Schools Participating
In 90% Reading Goal
The Gilchrist County School
District (GCSD) has undertaken
a reading project, "The 90%
Reading Goal."
With the understanding that a
child who can't read has little'
chance to succeed, the GCSD is
placing extra emphasis and re-
sources in the lower elementary
grades. The goal is that by the
end of third grade, 90 percent of


our students will be reading on
or above grade level.
Mrs. Smithers' first grade
(Trenton Elementary School)
will host a guest reader from the
community each month. The
guest reader will read a story to
the class and talk to the students
about how the reader uses
reading in his or her job thus
connecting reading to the real
world. By making this real
world connection, first graders
will understand that the valuable


skills they are learning will help
them in places other than
school.
This month's guest reader
was Mr. Buddy Vickers, Su-
perintendent of Gilchrist County
Schools. Mr. Vickers told the
students how he used reading in
his job and daily life. He read
the story, Pulling My Leg.
The story told about a little
girl with a loose tooth. Thank
you Mr. Vickers.

Character First!
Theme Of The
Month Is
"OBEDIENCE"
By Geneva Cornwell
OBEDIENCE "Cheerfully
carrying out the directions and
wishes of those who are respon-
sible for me." In applying
OBEDIENCE one can will to
obey authorities immediately by
having a cheerful attitude, com-
pleting all of what is to be ex-
pected, not complaining and,
most of all, going the "extra
mile."
The following is an illustra-
tion of OBEDIENCE. Indian
workers domesticated elephants
as long as 5,500 years ago. The
elephants' obedient nature and
gentle power suits them per-
fectly for a life of service.
Typically, a young boy of ten
begins training an elephant his
same age, and the two work to-
gether for a lifetime. During
these years together, the two be-
come inseparable. The boy
feeds his elephant, bathes him,
tends his wounds, and trains
him. In return, the elephant
demonstrates remarkable
OBEDIENCE and loyalty.
OBEDIENCE: the quality or
state of being submissive to the
restraint or command of author-
ity; an act or instance of fol-
lowing commands or guidance.
It is important to understand the
difference between mistakes, er-
rors and failures. *A mistake is
the result of a miscalculation,
inability or accidental oversight.
*An error is the result of wrong
information, wrong processes,
or a wrong understanding. *A
failure is the result of a lack of
character.
OBEDIENCE is perhaps the
most critical character quality
for anyone in leadership. The
military has a saying: "A senior
-must never regard his rank. The
junior must never forget it."
Keeping one's actions consis-
tent with one's words shows
personal OBEDIENCE. The
way to effectively teach
OBEDIENCE to others is to be
more' obedient to one's own
authorities. Rather than en-
forcing OBEDIENCE with an
attitude of superiority,
OBEDIENCE should be en-
Sforl-edi s a matter of pritrciplle
and as-a measure of Individual
character, which starts in the
heart'of each individual. *
So much attention is given, to
disobedience that many people,
especially children, accept con-
demnation, as the best there is
Sto offer. We all need to show
that character is worthwhile by
praising OBEDIENCE in the
lives of everyone. The praise
people receive will motivate
them to continue being obedi-
ent, as we all continually point
others to the fact that Gilchrist
County is a County of Charac-
ter because it's a County that
Cares.


Florida PTA Parent


Involvement And
Leadership
Conference To Be
Held October 15
PTA members, -community
members, school administrators,
teachers and students are sched-
uled to attend a Parent Involve-
Sment and Leadership Confer-
ence sponsored by Florida PTA.
The conference will be held on
October 15th from 8:00 a.m. to
4:00 p.m. at East Gadsden High
School, 27001 Blue Star High-
way in Havana. Attendees will
come from Leon, Gadsden, Wa-
kulla, Taylor, Madison, Suwan-
nee, Jefferson, Lafayette, Lib-
erty, Gilchrist, Dixie and
Franklin counties. There is no
fee for participation in the
training and a continental break-
fast and lunch will be provided.
John Winn, Commissioner of
Education will speak at the
opening session of the confer-
ence. Conference attendees will
receive training on parent in-
volvement awareness- subjects,
child advocacy, FCAT, and
leadership skill enhancement.
Informational workshops will
be conducted on Character Edu-
cation, FCAT, Homework: A
Parent's Survival Guide, Advo-
cacy 101, and many more sub-
jects. Leadership training work-
shops will be conducted on
Developing Strong Leaders,
Working with Administration,
Building Community Partner-
ships, Dads in the PTA, Build-
ing Strong Communication
Links and many more.
Florida PTA believes that
providing parent involvement
and leadership training benefits
the health, welfare and well-
being of children. As parents
become better informed about
their rights in the educational


setting, the impact on their chil-
dren is immeasurable. Research
clearly shows that parent in-
volvement increases student
success.
Florida PTA encourages par-
ents, community members,
school personnel, students and
school' administrators to
strengthen their partnership in
the educational process by par-
ticipating in the Florida PTA
Parent Involvement and Leader-
ship Conference.


Will Our County
Lose A Gem?
In this case, the gem is in the
form of a book. A very popular
library program, Books-by-
Mail, seems to be endangered.
The service is a boon to anyone
who has difficulty visiting a.tra-
ditional library. The program
provides a large selection of
books mailed directly to the
home, and includes a return en-
velope for mailing them back.
The postage both ways is pro-
vided. The sponsor is the Three
rivers Regional Library System
and covers all residents of
Dixie, Gilchrist, and Lafayette
counties.
Although nothing can replace
the traditional library there are
man folks \ ho just can't ige to
it. For'~xample the homebothd.
fe nion-driVer, those wno hlive
many miles away, pre-school
children, and those who work
odd hours on their job. For
these people the mailman does
the work.
The program issues a catalog
listing over 750 titles from
which to choose and is conven-
iently divided by category. Pa-
trons can select from biogra-
phies, westerns, mysteries, sci-fi
and others. There is also an
extensive collection of good
children's books. A great treat
for those with vision problems
is the collection of books in
large print.
Since'its inception in .1997,
the program has grown, both in
the number of patrons served
and the number of titles avail-
able. It would be a pity to see
the program fall by the wayside.
so, if you should happen to be
speaking with your county
commissioner or librarian, voice
your support for such'a be-
nevolent program called
S"Books-by-Mail" 'and keep it
going. And don't forget, you
personally are eligible to par-
ticipate. Call 386-294-3858 or
toll free, 800-729-0529 for a
catalog.
Have you curled up with a
good book lately?

MDA Offers Flu
Shots For People
With Neuromuscular
Diseases
As it's done for several dec-
ades, the Muscular Dystrophy
Association will this year again
provide free flu shots to people
with any of the more than 40
neuromuscular diseases in the
association's program.
Having a progressive neuro-
muscular disease that damages
the muscles responsible for lung
function makes influenza much
riskier. It's particularly danger-
ous for those with muscular
dystrophy. spinal muscular at-
Srophy, amyotrophic lateral scle-
rosis (Lou Gehrig's disease) and
other neuromuscular diseases.
"Respiratory infections
caused by a flu virus can be-
come very dangerous for chil-
dren and adults with neuromus-
cular diseases whose respiratory
systems may already be weak-
ened," said MDA President and
CEO, Robert Ross. "For this

Georgia Woman
Convicted In $2.5
Million Identity Theft
Attorney General Charlie
Crist announced that an Orlando
jury today convicted a Georgia
woman on charges that she used
another person's identity to steal
more than $2.5 million from
that individual and financial in-
stitutions. Eva Patrick Verner,
also known as Eva Buchowski,
faces up to 60 years in prison
following the conviction.
A joint investigation by the
Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution and the
Orange County Sheriff's Office
revealed that Verner, 67, ob-
tained a Florida driver's license
with her photograph but unddr
the name of a Kissimmee
woman. Working with various
lenders in Southeast and South-
west Florida, Verner used the
bogus driver's license and other
fraudulent documents to, obtain
two mortgages on the victim's
property in amounts of
$350,000 and $2.3 million. She
had large portions of the money
wired to an account in the Cay-
man Islands that' had been
opened in the victim's name.
Verner then transferred the
funds from the fraudulent ac-
count to her own account and
attempted to used the proceeds
to buy other properties:in the
Gainesville area.
"This is a staggering tale of
fraud and identity theft," said
Crist.
"Fortunately, Florida has a
new identity theft law that pro-
vides stiff penalties for such
egregious criminal activity.
Nothing is more precious than a
person's good name, and we
will continue the fight to protect
Floridians from those who
would steal it."
Verner was convicted on two
counts of criminal use of per-
sonal identification information.
She will be sentenced on No-
vember 3" and faces a minimum
sentence of ten years in prison
and a maximum sentence of 60
years, as well as possible fines
up to $20,000. The case was
prosecuted by the Attorney
General's Office of Statewide
Prosecution.

Gilchrist Residents

Asked To Truly

Remember Troops


As residents of Gilchrist
County we are so faithful in
"Remembering our Troops."
But let us not forget that part of
that remembering entails keep-
ing them in prayer, daily. One
of the most powerful tools a
soldier of Christ has is the
weapon of prayer.
The following list is of those
who are serving on active duty
in the military and who are ei-
ther from Gilchrist County or
have a relative who resides here.
You are urged to cut out this ar-
ticle and place it near your Bible
or where you pray most often.
In praying you are "Remem-
bering our Troops" in a very
vital and important way, for if it
were not for these military per-
sonnel, and others, we here at
home could not be counting our
freedoms. (If you know of any-
one who is not mentioned here,
please contact the Gilchrist
County Journal Editor and the
name will be added).

GREETINGS
To my Country Connection
readers,
It's been a pleasure writing
this column for 25 1/2 years, but
the time has come to bid you all
farewell due to unexpected
health problems. I had high
hopes to continue on fdr a cou-
ple more years, but maybe God
has other plans for me.
I thank John Ayers and staff
and all my readers for their sup-
port and kindness as well as to
those who supplied me with
pictures, articles, etc. to use in
my columns. Many of you are
from other areas of Florida or
out of state whom I've never
had the pleasure of meeting.
* So, it's a sad time for me,
having to stop doing what I've
enjoyed doing so much over the
years. But I've saved all my 25
1/2 years of columns so you can.
bet I'm going to be doing a lot
of reminiscing. And you know
what? I'm going to miss seeing
my column in the Gilchrist
County Journal, also...
May God bless all of you,
Your Country Connection
Gal,
Lois

Isn't this little,angel a cutie?
The colors in the picture are so

has pretty, reddish blonde hair

pretty blue eyesshe has! She's
really a doll...

Once these tokens are sorted,
a junior priest hits the casinos,
changing the chips into cash.
What do they call this priest?
The chip monk.

A middle school class was
asked to tell a story with a
moral.
Kathy went first. "Once, we
were driving a basket of hen
eggs to market and we hit a big
bump in the road. The eggs
broke. The moral is don't put
all your eggs in one basket."
Tammy was next. "Once, we
had a dozen chicken eggs, but
when they hatched, we got only
ten chicks. The moral is don't
count your chickens before
they're hatched."
Then it was Johnny's turn.
"When my Aunt Karen was in
Desert Storm, her plane was hit.
She bailed out over enemy ter-
ritory with only a bottle of
whiskey and a machine gun.
"She drank the liquor on the
way down so it wouldn't break,
and landed in the middle of 100
enemy soldiers. She killed 70
with the machine gun, and when
she ran out of bullets, she killed
the rest with her bare hands."
"What is the moral of that ter-
rible story?" the teacher asked,
horrified.
"Stay away from Aunt Karen
when she's been drinking."

EMS checked out the weary
hunter, he drove himself home.
Opening day of hunting sea-

three misdemeanors were for

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, September 29'h at
the Levy County Quilt Mu-
seum. Much quilting went on
in the quilt room, some on the
frames, some on hoops, and
one was being appliqued.
Also, the rug gets several rows
done each week and still has
more to go.
It was great to have Mike
Brannon, director at Camp Ca-
ruth. Also with him was Mrs.
Nelson who works with the
children making lots of crafts.
They brought two more sets of
squares for us to put together.
They are then tacked and taken
back to the schools. They also
stayed and had lunch with.us
and we all love to visit with
them.
Nick Turner and six boys
were out on Wednesday and
got a lot of work done. We
have them each week for now
but there is also so much to do
and they do it.
Our prayers are with Alice
Mae Haire who has had knee
surgery. She is doing great.
She may be home and back
with us before' she's supposed
to as she is doing so well.
Rose Ford is back from New
York and it is so good to have
her. She helps Marie in the'
- kitchen when we have lunch.
Marie.was out for a month and
now she is back with all her
yummy desserts.
Lunch was sweet potato day;
fried and casseroles, a total of
four different kinds but all
good. We also had spaghetti,
corn casserole, chicken salad,
egg custard and so much more
as well. We had 13 members'
and two guests present.

This is another quilt top made many years ago. It is the
"Autograph" pattern but using the colors in different
ways makes it look so different. It does consist of feed
sack fabric that was popular at that time.

Legionnaires, friends and community:
October is an e\cning month, the leaves start changing colors, the
bnskness in the air. Halloween and Turkey Shoots.. The legion will
have Turkey Shoots at the Post home on October 15th and 22nd,
starting at S.30 AM Come out and enjoy breakfast and get an edge
on ,our shooting skills.
The general meeting will be held on Saturday. the Sth at 10 AM
The EC meeting will be on the 28th at 7 PM Both at the post home
The Auxiliary' %ill meet in the 20lh at 7 PIM.
MEMBERSHIP is the key to any organization's success. We are
in the final quarer of our membership year. All legion, auxiliary and
SAL dues are due. What does membership in The American Legion
mean? Membership in The Amencan Legion is membership in
Amenca "Get Insoloed" is our motto. It is also the pnmary reason
why more and more dedicated veterans continue to devote their lihes
to their country It is the background of involvement that creates and
supports the feeling of camaraderie which makes The Amencan
Legion the nation's largest and fastest growing organization of
wartime veterans Membersiup is the livelihood of "The American
Legion" Without the members there would be no legion programs.
Without members we would have no %oice on Capitol Hill Without
members there would be no accomplishment in assistance and
support of veterans. their families, the community, state and nation.
We MUST offer eligible veterans the opportunity to be a part of this
great organization. .
The legion cherishes four great principles Justice, Freedom,
Democracy and Loyalty. This week we will start with Justice.
Justice makes no distinction of persons. It favors neither high nor
low, neither rich nor poor, neither the classes nor the masses. Justice
is the guiding star of life. It transcends all boundaries'of race and
creed. Justice for our sick and disabled veterans has always been, and
must forever be. the concern of The American Legion.-, The
rehabilitation of those men and women who valiantly offered their all
in response to their country's call, the relief of those who have
suffered by that sacrifice, is our hallowed duty. Legionnaires must be
ever vigilant that none shall feel the injustice of work undone. The
American Legion is ever mindful of its duty to the nation, and the
nation's duty to those who answered its call in time of war.
America still remains what President Lincoln called 'The last best
hope on Earth." "We should all reflect on how truly fortunate each of
us are to live in this blessed country. And most of all, we all should
pause and remember and honor all of those who are undertaking the
truly noble work of preserving our freedom. We are deeply in their
'debt."
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY

how Much Should I Offer?
- In many sintanons, one of the
early, and most difficult hurdles in'
the buying process,-is figuring out
how much to offer the seller. You
want to be just right, not too high,
and not too low.
- Your Real Estate Agent can help
you by doing a CMA for the
prospective property. A CMA is a
"Comparative Market Analysis",
this report is a great tool for
estimating value. The CMA will
compare the house you are
interested in buying to others that
have sold in the area. Usually the
listing agent will complete a CMA
for the seller.
- In this market, homes sell for
close to or over asking pnce.
Sellers are informed at listing that
they should be prepared for offers,
and sometimes an agent will go
through scenarios that will help
prepare the Seller for an offer.
Bottom-line though, the Seller
makes the ultimate decision.
- Sellers do not always onlylook at
.the price. The terms are
sometimes just as important.
When deciding on your offer
amount, your terms should also be
considered. Everything from the
amount of the binder deposit, to
the contingencies placed within the
contract. The offer is your case for
buying the home, presented on
paper, you want to make as strong
of a case as you can, incase
another offer comes in.

Open Letter to the
Citizens Of Trenton
(Continued from Page One)
years. I've worked with my
fellow commissioners to lay a
solid foundation for now and in
the future. The City of Trenton
is home to some of the finest
people I've ever known. I've
made many friends that I will
cherish for a lifetime.
The reason I'm giving my
notice this early is to allow my
position to be voted on in the
upcoming City election. This
way you as the citizens will
have the opportunity to elect
someone to represent you, in
lieu of having someone ap-
pointed to finish out my term.

I've strived to serve you in
the most responsible manner
possible, my forethought in
serving has always been re-
membering the office I hold
does not belong to.me, it be-
longs to the people I serve.
My life of public service is
far from over; my plans are to
continue to serve the citizens of
Gilchrist County through vari-
ous volunteer efforts, and again
in the future to seek your sup-
port in public service.
Sincerely,
Jonathan S. Kincaid
Trenton City Commissioner

Brian Kirby Is
Character Council's
Personality For

achieving the coveted Boy
Scouts of America Eagle Scout
award. (We wish him well).
Brian believes that receiving the
award has shown him that "he
will not give up on anything he
pursues," no matter what the
obstacles.
While discussing the trait of
OBEDIENCE with Brian, this
author recognized that this
young man deflects much praise
to his parents, Tim and Linda,
as to how they have assisted
him in understanding the need
for OBEDIENCE in all that he
does. Brian believes that
OBEDIENCE is important in
his life, for he says that "when
(he) was born (he) didn't have
the knowledge of right and
wrong. As (he) learned from his
parents and other adults to do

right. Showing OBEDIENCE
to their advice (has helped him
greatly.)"
Something that Brian does
with his fellow scouts of Troop
406 is to go on food drives in
the county. He says that "as a
Boy Scout, as well as all the
members of the whole troop, a
pledge was made to the com-
munity, to demonstrate service
(to residents in need) and to dis-
play OBEDIENCE to those in
authority."
Brian's wise words to his
peers and to those who are
younger than him, are that
OBEDIENCE can be reflected
in sO many ways. You only live
once. If you're not going to live
right, what's the point?,
OBEDIENCE shows who you
are to other people." Brian be-
lieves that parents are the main
part of a child's life. He gives
much credit to his mother in
teaching him to trust law-
abiding adults. Brian asserts,
"that even through
OBEDIENCE, you can't obey
without trust." He admonishes
other youth to "be obedient to
parents. Trust them. Parents
raised you. They know you.
Trust them!"
It's young people like Brian
Kirby which give us adults -true
hope for the future and allows
us to see that a County of Char-
acter because it is a County that
Cares.

largest wartime veterans organi-
zation meeting here during their
87th annual national convention
forged their solidarity against
legal abuse and secular cleans-
ing of American family values
and religious symbols by the
ACLU and other organizations.

Senator Bill Nelson
Visits Tri-County
Area
(Continued from Page One)
corn, sugar cane or grass. Coal
gasification is a clean way to
use the 300 year coal reserve in
our country and not damage our
air. In coal gasification the coal
is processed to create a gas that
burns clean. Synthetic fuels can
also be made from coal which
burn clean as well. Right now
60 percent of the fuels the
United States uses every day
comes from foreign soil, this
must change.
He then touched on the war
issues. Sen. Nelson voiced that
much of the equipment our sol-
diers have to keep them safe is
working very well. Soldiers in-
volved in combat have body
armor that is protecting their
vital organs and saving their
lives. Unfortunately many of
these soldiers still receive other
injuries that render them
maimed. This is going to be
another drain on the Veterans
Administration which is already
having trouble servicing veter-
ans of previous wars. He is
working to make sure all of our
veterans receive their benefits.
One citizen voiced their con-
cern about how often the re-
servists are being called upon
over and over again. Sen. Nel-
son explained that the war in
Iraq has not gone as they origi-
nally planned and now they are
trying to stabilize that country
and it is going to take time to
get that done. "Now we're in a
.situation, and we're in a heck of
a fix. We can't just pull out be-
cause that's like turning it over
to Osama Bin Laden and Al-
caida. The best we can hope for
is that we can start getting the
Iraqi army trained where it can
provide its own security."
Senator Nelson explained that
France and Germany have
Voiced that they would help
train the Iraqi army outside of
their country, all we have to do
is ask. But our government will
not ask for their assistance. He
wants to see our troops back
home as soon as possible and he
is doing what he can to make
that happen as quickly as possi-
ble.
Citizens also asked the Sena-
tor about the issues with FEMA
and what was being done to cor-
rect the problems. Our Senator
explained "It took Katrina to
expose the lack of leadership"
within FEMA. "Now the guy
that they have in there now is a
professional." They hired Chief
Tulson, who is the former Fire
Chief of Miami-Dade County,
and "if they will let him get his
own team of professionals
you'll start to see some im-
provement."
Senator Bill Nelson was
pleased to answer the questions
and hear the concerns of our lo-
cal citizens. He wants to keep
us updated on what issues may
be of interest to Floridians. To

Nelson's web site at

Four thousand delegates rep-
resenting 2.7 million members
unanimously passed Resolution
139 that calls upon Congress to
amend the practice of using tax-
payer-funded attorney fees by
claims under the Equal Access
to Justice.
"The 1976 Civil Rights At-
torney's Fee Awards Act was
much needed legislation, but in
recent years, certain groups
have abused the congressional
intent of this public law in 'Es-
tablishment Clause' lawsuits
against the Boy Scouts of
America, the Ten Command-
ments, and now veterans' me-
morials, said Thomas P. Cad-
mus, 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 Damo-
cles' strategically employed by
organizations like the American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU)
to coerce 'settlements by cities,
counties, states, and large orga-
nizations like the Boy Scouts of
America and the Department of
Defense by suits and threats of
lawsuits against any public ex-
pression of America's religious
history, heritage, and values,"
Cadmus said. "When out-of-
court settlements are more cost
effective than the judicial proc-
ess, then the system is clearly
broken."
Cadmus lauded the introduc-
tion of HR 2679, the Public Ex-
pression of Religion Act
(PERA), by Rep. John Hostet-
tier and urged all Americans to
strongly support this long over-
due legislation.
Long time civil rights attor-
ney Rees Lloyd spoke to the
delegation earlier in the day on
what he calls the ACLU's ag-
gressive "secular cleansing of
our America heritage through
the elimination of our religious
symbols and our core values of
decency, citizenship and Ameri-
canism."
Lloyd, a past commander of
American Legion San Gorgonio
Post 448 in Banning, California,
worked for the ACLU at one
time and is very familiar with
how the ACLU's mind-set and
litigation strategies work.
"Using taxpayers' dollars to
pay these court-ordered attorney
fees, especially when attacking
established, traditional Ameri-
can values is absurd," Lloyd
said. "The list of victims con-
tinues to grow Los Angeles
County, the cities of San Diego
and Redlands in California, the
school boards in Chicago, Illi-
nois, and Portland, Oregon, the
Village of Ca'iletori. Depart-
ment of Housing and Urban
Development, Department of
Defense, Ten Commandments
cases in Kentucky, Texas, and
Alabama, and even a Veterans'
Memorial in the Mojave Desert.
Who will be the next victim?
"When the mere threat of at-
torney's fee is so severe that
large organizations fear the con-
sequences, 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 re-
ligious symbols like the Ten
Commandments," Lloyd said.
