The Trenton Rotary Club members were excited to hear all of the positive information about the Bell Health Academy. The
Academy is gearing up to start working with the Lake City Community College and they are looking into ways to expand
the classes offered. Current and previous Health Academy students were very enthusiastic about their experience in the
program and recommend it to anyone thinking about going into the medical profession. Photo by Anna Wild


Bell Health Academy Visits Trenton Rotary

Club In Monday Meeting


By Anna Wild
On Monday, October 17,
2005 the Trenton Rotary Club
welcomed representatives from
the Bell Health Academy. They
spoke about the academy and
how important the program has
been to its students.
Jo Buckles, Trenton Rotary
member, spoke highly of the
program and its achievements
and was proud to say that two of
the presenters were not only
graduates of the Health Acad-
emy at Bell but also employed
at Ayers Health and Rehabilita-
tion Center. Ayers Health and
Rehab has been involved in this
program since 1994, before it
became an academy. The acad-
emy program began in 1996 and
has increased the graduation and
employment rates. The students
enrolled in the Health Academy
at Bell score higher on FCAT
tests in both math and reading
than those students not enrolled
in the academy. In 2005 over
50 percent of the students


Ray Sanders Of Bell
Retires After 26
Years In Postal
Service
Retirement Reception:
Friday, October 21, 2005
Bell Post Office
From 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
By Rayanne Ferguson
Do you know Mr. Ray Sand-
ers? Do you know anything
about him? Have you ever seen
him around? The answers are
clear... YES! YES! YES!
Let's recap his life just a lit-
tle. Ray is one of 12 children
(six boys and six girls) born to
Mr. Clayton Sanders and Mrs.
Clyde Martin Sanders of Bell.
These were the proud parents of
what everyone thought, made
the perfect football team. This
family grew up right next to an-
other very well known family in
the Bell area, the Philmans, also
a family of 12 children (another
football team-born and raised
right here).
The Sanders Farm (owner
Hiram Sanders) was located
where Bell Elementary sits to-
day and was a very big part of
Ray's childhood. The Sanders
family, like others during those
years, lived off the land. Ray
grew up knowing all about col-
lecting eggs, milking the cow,
raising pigs, and killing chick-


graduating from the health
academy are now attending
colleges. The training they re-
ceive at the health academy
better prepares students for col-
lege than just high school
classes alone.
Jo introduced Dr. Barbara
Sofge, Coordinator of the Bell
Health Academy. Dr. Sofge has
a resume that clearly says she
likes school; she has several de-
grees and continues to add to
her accomplishments. It is
somewhat ironic that she is now
working in Bell. You see when
she worked with Florida State
University she had heard about
how well the Health Academy
was in Bell, Florida and she was
unaware of where Bell was.
Later she was in Bakersfield,
California at the National Acad-
emy Meeting and again they
were talking about how well the
Bell Academy was doing. Since
no one knew where Bell was
they looked Gilchrist County up
on the map but they could not


even find our county since it is
so small. Then one day a col-
league called her to let her know
of the job opening in Bell's
Health Academy; Dr. Sofge's
husband was determined to live
near a river and so the rest was
history.
She is very excited about the
program offered through the
Bell Health Academy and wants
to make sure all students are
welcome. She is eager to help
them in whatever areas they
need assistance. They are get-
ting ready to be able to offer
"satellite classes" so she can be
teaching a class in Bell. Tren-
ton students can also receive the
class information.
In January Lake City Com-
munity College Will be starting
a "Bridge Program" at the Bell
Health Academy in which they
will be taking the practical nurse
and educating them to be RNs.
LCCC will use our facility and
in return the academy will re-
ceive new equipment. The pro-

gram now offers students to
leave high school with one of
several certifications. For those
who go on to college they are
one step ahead of most other
new college students because
they have already completed a
90-hour "core." Anyone who
enters college in the medical
field must complete this "core"
which is a 12-week course; by
completing this in high school
you just saved yourself a large
tuition cost. Not to mention if
you complete the course and de-
cide it's really not what you
want to do, you did not spend
all that money on tuition just to
find out you want: something
else. Dr. Sofge was pleased to
say that very few graduates
found themselves in this situa-
tion.
Dr. Sofge was also happy to
introduce three young ladies
who have participated in the
health academy program. Tina

A Letter To The
Citizens Of Trenton

Over the past few months we
have seen an increase in burgla-
ries. Over the past ten months
we have added two more police
officers to our staff with the in-
tent to lower the crime rate in
the City of Trenton and to
minimize these types of crimes.
We are committed to protecting
your homes and businesses in
the City of Trenton.
I would like to also let the
citizens know that these cases
are still actively being investi-
gated and we do have some fo-
rensic evidence as to the identity
of the perpetrator or perpetra-
tors.
I would like to ask each citi-
zen to help us keep an eye out
for anything or anyone in your
neighborhood that looks suspi-
cious or out of place. I'm con-
fident that with the citizens'
help we can bring these people
to justice and make our com-
munity safe and secure once
again.
I would like to add that we
are currently taking applications
to join our crime patrol we are
forming. Please get involved
and -together we can put crimi-

The Gilchrist County Com-
mission postponed a decision to
go forward and exchange prop-
erty deeds with the Gilchrist
County School District Monday
evening. The five-member
board of commissioners have
not decided that allowing the
LCCC campus to be located
near the intersection of CR 307
and US 129 between Trenton
and Bell is the best site for Gil-
christ County.
The County Commission
took action over two months
ago to exchange parcels of land
with the School District that
would allow the School Board
to enter into a lease with Lake
City Community College to lo-
cate a satellite campus in Gil-
christ County.
Gilchrist School Superinten-
dent Buddy Vickers told the
County Commission Monday
night that LCCC was coming to
Gilchrist County beginning in
January 2006. The LCCC
Nursing Program will begin to
expand their curriculum in the
Health Academy at Bell High
School.
The meeting began with
Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford, chairman of the Firing
Range Committee, giving a re-
port to the five-member board.
The committee has held three
meetings to bring all the inter-
ested parities together to work
out a solution to this very inten-
sive opportunity. "The commit-
tee has held a lot of discussion
about possibilities and solutions
but are unable to make a rec-
ommendation to the board at
this time," Commissioner Lang-
ford explained. The board's rep-
resentative gave four alterna-
tives that could be possibilities
to a solution.
1. Select another site for the
LCCC Campus, possibly the
Parker property site near Tren-
ton or the Loncala property that
is out near SR 47. There are
other possible sites being dis-
cussed.
2. The County Commission can
go forward and exchange deeds
and make preparation to build
another range at a new site.
3. The County Commission can
go ahead and exchange deeds
with the School Board and dis-


regard the Sheriff's Office use
of the firing range.
4. The County Commission can
go forward and exchange deeds
with the School District and re-
quire the Sheriff's Office and
Lake City Community College
to work out an agreement re-
garding the firing range. The
Sheriff's Office would retain
control of the Firing Range.
Langford explained that every-
one on the committee is in favor
of LCCC establishing a campus
in Gilchrist County. "We need
both the campus and the firing
range but finding a solution is
difficult," Commissioner
Tommy Langford explained.
Gilchrist County Attorney
John McPherson explained to
the board that the property
where the firing range is located
was purchased with revenue
from the Federal Drug Forfei-
ture Fund. Pieces of land that
were purchased originally in
this agreement have been sold
off. "No one is sure of exactly
how much drug forfeiture
money was used in the purchase
of this? property," McPherson
explained.
In 2001 McPherson drafted a
resolution that was adopted by
the Board of Commissioners
that transferred the Drug For-
feiture Fund designation to the
property that is adjacent to the
Sheriffs Office where the Road
Department is located. This was
done to prepare for the reloca-
tion of the Road Department to
the Walker Curve property that
is adjacent to where the firing
range is now located.
"I have listened to tapes of
County Commission meetings
for hours that the Sheriff has.
The information that the Sheriff
states which identifies the des-
ignation of the Drug Forfeiture
Funds not being associated with
the Road Department property
is unclear to me," McPherson
explained.
"The Board of County
Commissioners gave the Sheriff
authority to use the firing range
as long as he needed to,"
McPherson added. "I believe the
resolution stands that identifies
the Federal Drug Forfeiture
designation now goes with the
parcel that is adjacent to the
Sheriffs Office and Jail Com-


plex," McPherson stated.
Sheriff Turner addressed the
Commission and explained that
contrary to what Attorney John
McPherson says, the firing
range property was purchased in
an agreement between the
Sheriff's Office and the Federal
Government. The Gilchrist
County Sheriff can not own any
property and the deed to the
property is in the name of the
Gilchrist County Commission.
The Sheriff explained that
the attorney representing the
Federal Government would not
come down to Gilchrist County
to explain this issue, but the
letter that was given to the
board in a previous meeting still
stands.
Sheriff Turner told the
Commission that he was in fa-
vor of Lake City Community
College establishing a campus
in Gilchrist County and using
the firing range. At some time
during the negotiations involv-
ing the college coming to Gil-
christ County, the Sheriff
learned that the firing range had
become involved in the property
that was being considered to be
exchanged for another parcel of
land with the School Board.
Sheriff Turner explained to
the board that he estimated the
property being considered is ap-
proximately one acre. "We just
got through last week conduct-
ing training classes with our of-
ficers in their Hazmat gear at
night at the firing range facil-
ity," Turner explained. "I re-
quest you the Board of Com-
missioners to allow us to con-
tinue to keep the Firing Range
and comply with the Federal
Drug Forfeiture guidelines," the
Sheriff added.
Sam Ferguson, a member of
the Firing Range Committee,
told the board that the location
of the LCCC Campus between
Trenton and Bell would allow
both municipalities to gain from.
students attending classes at the
proposed site. "If the campus is
located in either Trenton or
Bell, one of the communities
would lose out," Ferguson
added.
Buddy Vickers told the
board that the estimated 300

John and I traveled down to
the family camp at Suwannee
on Sunday afternoon. I had for-
gotten how really quiet it is
down there when the summer
crowd thins out. The afternoon
weather was picture perfect. I
couldn't help but lay down on
the dock for thirty minutes or so
just soaking up the sun and the
sounds of the rippling Suwan-
nee as it slapped against the
seawall. The gulls and land
birds were making their usual
happy chatter, which only en-
hanced my peaceful time on the
river. I guess the amazing part
was that I didn't hear a single
jet ski, only an occasional boat
coming up the mouth of the
river to break the calm..The
weather was a little cool and
you could feel the Fall in the
air.
I'm not too sure why, but as I
lay their thinking about what
peace a late afternoon on the
Suwannee always brings me I
could not help but wonder about
the folks across the Gulf from
us. I feel so blessed that we
were not affected by a hurricane
as they were.
I recently read a brave ac-
count from a Biloxi woman who
wrote about her family's'trying
times since her home and entire

our fish box bare til afternoon.
We finally decided to try our
luck bumping the bottom with
live and frozen bait on this
artificial reef. When we got on
the reef, the bottom appeared to
be of good structure and the bait
fish seemed to be in. good
number around the marking
area.
Mark is usually the first to
get a hit. As.always he ,pulled
up a short red grouper.
Moments later, Bill's pole bent
to the water line and the fight
was on. He quickly pulled in a
gag grouper of less than 22'
minimum sizVF, ,;', !.
., I finally dropped down and
began to bump the bottom. I felt
what might have been a bite just
before my pole began to pull to
the \ water. The pull was real as I
quickly got the butt of the rod to
my waist. I reeled twice when.
the line went limp.. I reeled up
and fund that half of my 100
pound leader had been cut to
threads.
I quickly tied up another
leader and went back to the
Bottom. This time .n hen I got a
hit, I tried to get the fish off the
bottom as quick as possible.
This practice was. an
improvementt as I put j 24" gag
grouper in the fish box.
Mark and Bill caught several
other grouper but I was limited
to a single.
I did catch one black fish,
but the other types of reef fish
seemed -to have disappeared
from the structure.

I'm afraid the effects of the
Red Tide will be with us for
some time. The amount of fish
killed in our area was just
unbelievable.

herself exhausted and over-

that inner strength that most
Southern women have she

they would rebuild her area of
the South. She said she knows
that there will be an army of
steel-willed Southern ladies that

will comfort loved ones, 'feed
their hungry and nurture their
families.
Those folks in Alabama, Mis-
sissippi and Louisiana sure have
their work cut out for them. But
true to form they will rise up
and persevere again.
On our way home John and I
picked up a bag of freshly
cooked stone crab claws. I have
to tell you those crabs were
some kinda good. We ate till we
were way passed full.
I have a couple of good
sauces for seafood I would like,
to share this week. Our family is
pretty serious when it comes to
seafood. We travel far and wide
/to pick up the very freshest pos-
sible. Carrie, our daughter, lives
in Nassau County where there is
a whole fleet of shrimp 'boats
docked at Fernandina. Last year
we were feasting on fresh Flor-
ida wild shrimp right out of the
Atlantic. You can't compare
wild shrimp to those less than
desirable farmed raised shrimp
which are sold at most grocery
stores now.
If you like cocktail sauce this
recipe is a winner. It's a whole
lot better than the bottled stuff
Sou bu\ in the store. You can
make it up the day before, you

off Fernindina and the south
Georgia coast about now. You
just can't beat a big old bowl of
fresh boiled shrimp and home-
made cocktail sauce. Stone

Working Out Our Salvation Build
(Kent Heaton)


Last week we examined the passage of Philip-
pians 2:12, "Wherefore, my beloved,' as ye have
always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but
now much more in my absence, work out your
own salvation with fear and trembling." Many
do not understand .how this passage can be ex-
plained with Ephesians 2:8-9, "For by grace are
ye saved through faith; and that not of your-
selves: it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any
man should boast." In his letter to Philippi, Paul
admonishes- the Christians to "work out" their
salvation but reminds the brethren at Ephesus that
salvation is not of works but of grace.
What may seem as a contradiction is a com-
plete picture of man's salvation. To understand
these two verses we' turn to the Old Testament
story of Noah. In Genesis 6, God was "grieved in
His heart" over the wickedness of man and deter-
mined to destroy all mankind. "But Noah found
grace in the eyes of the Lord" (Genesis 6:8). By
this grace, God told Noah two things: (1) What
was coming the total destruction of the world;
(2) What Noah must do to be saved "make
yourself an ark of gopher-wood" (Genesis 6:14).
The grace that Paul speaks of in Ephesians 2 is
how God has declared to man what will become
of the world "The Lord is not slack concerning
his promise, as some men count slackness; but
is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any
should perish, but that all should come to repen-
tance. But the day of the Lord will come as a
thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall
pass away with a great noise, and the elements
shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and
the works that are therein shall be burned up"
(2 Peterf3:9-10). Man would not know this apart
from God's grace.
The second part of grace that Paul speaks about
in Ephesians 2 is how God tells Noah what to do
to be saved from the destruction of the world.
God's grace is not complete without the revela-
tion of how salvation is secured. Noah was told
not only what was coming but also what he must
do to be saved. At this point, Noah is not saved.
He only knows what is coming and what to do

Thee An Ark


but his salvation is not complete.. Jehovah tells
him to build an ark! Belief did not save Noah
alone but working out his salvation did.
The Hebrew writer says that Noah "prepared
an ark for the saving of his household" (11:7).
This is how Paul means salvation is accomplished
by working out our salvation with fear and trem-
bling. Armed with the knowledge of God's judg-
ment and plan of salvation, Noah began building
an ark. He had to secure the right kind of wood
and gather the needed "pitch" to cover the ark.
He had to make the ark three hundred cubits long
with a width of fifty cubits and its height thirty cu-
bits (Genesis 6:15). Noah had to follow every
command of God in building the ark or it would
sink to the bottom. God could have just given an
ark to Noah but Noah had to do his part. "Thus
Noah did; according to all that God commanded
him, so he did" (Genesis 6:22).
Today, we have the same command of God. We
must heed His warning given by His grace. We
are told in the word of God "how to build an
ark" how to be saved. We can no more be saved
by faith alone than Noah could. We must listen to
the word of God (Romans 10:17) so that faith may
bring us to believe that Jesus Christ is the only
way of salvation (John 14:6). Our lives must be
changed in repentance to dedicate our will to the
will of God (Luke 13:3; Luke 14:26-33) and con-
fess with our mouth that we believe that Jesus is
the Son of God (Romans 10:9-13). Upon this con-
fession we must be baptized for the remission of
our sins (Matthew 28:19,20; Mark 16:15,16; Acts
2:38,39; Romans 6:3-6).
"When the longsuffering of God waited in the
days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing,
wherein few, that is, eight souls, were saved
through water: which also after a true likeness
doth now save you, even baptism, not the putting
away of the filth of the flesh, but the interroga-
tion of a good conscience toward God, through
the resurrection of Jesus Christ" (1 Peter 3:20-
21). Are you building an ark in obedience to the
will of God?

Bell Health Academy
Visits Trenton
Rotary

(Continued from Page One)

Butler and Meghan McKenzie
both graduated in 2005. They
attended the academy for four
years and now work as CNAs at
Ayers Health & Rehabilitation.
They both also attend Santa Fe
Community College full time in
the nursing program and will re-
ceive their RN degree. Patricia
Owens is currently a senior at
Bell High School and is dual en-
rolled full time in college. Her
plans are to graduate from the
'health academy this summer,
get her RN degree from college
then go on to medical school to
become a doctor. Dr. Sofge
smiled and said "and she will be
a doctor!"
It was wonderful to see stu-
dents so excited and positive
about what they want and know
that they have the tools to make
it a reality. I was very im-
pressed that other educational
facilities have recognized the ef-
forts of the Bell Health Acad-
emy. Sometimes when you live
in a "small town" you forget
that you really do have an im-
pact on more than just your own
backyard and you really can
make a big difference.

It also, through the contacts
made by members, can often
introduce the members to serv-

Never A Dull Moment In The TES

Science Lab


Students in Mrs. Harris' kindergarten class experience what it feels like to sit in a
cloud.


Never A Dull
Moment
Thanks to the generosity of
TES parent Danny Powell and.
his employer, Regeneration
Technologies, Inc., students in
Mr. Vogel's Science Lab have
been exploring the wonders of
dry ice. Experiments with dry
ice provide an ,excellent oppor-
tunity for students to study
properties and phases of matter,
hone their powers of observa-
tion, measure drastic changes in
temperature, and so much more.
After learning about how
plants turn water and carbon di-
oxide gas from the air into sug-
ars (photosynthesis), children,
are always amazed to discover
that dry' ice is actually solid car-


bon dioxide gas. Our experi-
ments also lend. themselves
nicely to lessons on evapora-
tion, condensation and precipi-
tation (water cycle), as students
observe the fog that appears and
then disappears when they blow
across a container of dry ice and
the frost that forms on the con-
tainer.
These experiments and dem-
onstrations make it much easier
to understand why we see our
breath on very cold days, why
the bathroom mirror fogs when
we take showers,, and how
clouds form.
We are very fortunate at
Trenton Elementary to have
many parents willing to share
their talents and resources for
the benefit of students. When


parents, teachers, administrators
and members of 'the community
work together as a team, great
things happen for our students!
Students in Mrs. Harris' kin-
dergarten class experienced
what it feels like to sit in a
cloud.

Christmas Parade
Coming Soon
Brrrrr, I felt it too! It's cool
weather. What a super week-
end. There was a cool nip in the
air, a clear.sky and then it
warmed up. What a beautiful
day Saturday was. The only
thing else we needed for a per-
fect day was a parade. A parade
can make any day perfect!
Parade we need and parade
we will have. On December 3,
2005, the Town of Bell will
sponsor its 25th, that's right, 25th
Annual Bell Christmas Parade.
Joining the parade again this
year will be the Street Side Arts
and Crafts Sale. The celebra-
tion kicks off early in the
morning when the vendors will
begin to set up their wares, the
music cranks up, Santa sleighs
his way into the depot station,
and the day officially begins.
If you haven't started to plan
your parade entry yet, then this
is a great day to start. Begin
with the theme, "Silver Bells,
It's Christmas Time in the City
of Bell." (Just like the song)
Then remember "25th anniver-
sary" silver...Bell... get the
picture? Now grab a pen and
paper and jot down your ideas.
Then, with that same pen jot
this number and give us a call
for your application for the Bell
Christmas Parade: There are
several categories and trophies
for the winners.
Another contest this year will
be Mr. and Mrs. Silver Bell.
Ask for that application too,
then nominate someone for the
honor of representing, the Town
of Bell in our parade. A few re-
quirements to'remember are.:
applicants must be 50+, must
have been a resident of the Bell
area for at least 25 years and
then provide information on
community service they have
been involved in. That's all it
takes to nominate, someone -
male or female (they do not
need to be a married couple, in-
dividual nominees are wel-
come.)
Now grab 'that pen and )c.ur
jacket, 'cause, it's cool outside
and get started... the number to
call is-(386) 935-0129 Joanne,
Jordan or (352) 463-6367 Peggy
Sue Hilliard.

State of Florida has adminis-
tered the Weatherization Assis-
tance Program since its incep-
tion in 1976 and nationwide
over 5.5 million homes have
been weatherized. This day has
been designated to provide rec-
ognition of the State of Florida
Weatherization Program that
provides funds to very low and
low-income families to help re-
duce energy bills and to provide
a more comfortable and safe
home.
Suwannee River Economic
Council, Inc. Weatherization
Program provides home repairs
to homes in Bradford, Clay,
Columbia, Dixie, Gilchrist,

A few of the success stories
include a client that had weath-
erization repairs done to her
home, which included a new
door and a Window reverse cy-
cle heat unit. She quoted in a
letter saying "that by haf ing the
doors installed so well and the.
heat pump unit so air-proof and
tlght that I \won't lose anm heat


Bell Elementary Lunch Week was a big success. From left to right Betty Sheppard,
Representative Dwight Stansel, Marilyn Runde and Bonnie Edwards, and Judge Ed
Philman.


Lunch Week
Bell Elementary Students
were treated to exciting lunches
all last week. The occasion was
the celebration of National
School Lunch Week. Students
enjoyed several surprise guests
and lots of entertainment each
day during their lunch period.
Very special fall decorations
were prepared by two very spe-
cial volunteers. Marilyn Rinde
and Bonnie Edwards went all
out to decorate the stage with a
"Bell's Barn Yard" theme. The
decorations featured all manner


of farmyard characters. The la-
dies' efforts'were enjoyed by all
the students and staff at Bell
Elementary.
Not only did the former As-
sistant Principal at Bell Ele-
mentary Mr. Reed come down
from the Bell High to sing to the
students but Mrs. Nattalie
Rankin played the piano for
them one day. Other guests that
stopped in to help the students
celebrate during the week were
Representative Dwight Stansel,
Representative Ed Jennings, and
County Judge Ed Philmanwho

had weatherization repairs done
to her home which included new
doors and new windows, quoted
in a letter saying "that she could
tell a big difference and this was
a good program. Another client
that had no means of getting re-

Homeless Veterans
Stand Down
While the Tri-County area,
Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie cotin-
ties, has very few homeless vet-
erans, there are still homeless
veterans around us. A program
referred to as Stand Down is
one way to reach out and assist
homeless veterans.
So, what is a Stand Down? In
times of war, exhausted combat
units requiring time to rest and
recover were removed from
battlefields to a place of relative
security and safety. Today
Stand Down refers to a grass
roots, communal\ -based inter-
vention program des.itned to
help the nation's estimated
275,000 homeless veterans
combat" life on the streets. The
hand up. not a handout philoso-
Sph) of Stand Down is carried
out through the work of hun-
dreds of volunteers and organi-
zations throughout the nation.
On October 28, 2005, from
S9:00 am to 2:30-p.m., a Stand
SDown will be held at the US
Army Reserve Center, 1125 NE
8th A\enue. in Gainesville.- If
you are a homeless veteran or
you know one, make sure, you
get or get them to this event.
Homeless veterans needing
transportation should call their
local County Veterans Service.
Office in advance to. make ar-
rangements. In Gilchrist, 352-

4 Pets Sake
Because of the high expenses
we have to absorb to keep our
programs operating, we are
forced to reduce our surgeries to
12 a month. At this time we
have a three to four week wait-
ing list and we can do only one
pet per household. Realizing
we can no longer maintain the
pace we had previously kept, it
was suggested that cuts be made
to offset the cost of increases
that all of our projects have en-
dured. Hopefully, the economy
will improve soon.
Auction time is fast ap-
proaching. It is set for Satur-
day, January 14th and it will be
held in Alachua County. Pres-
ently we are waiting for the ap-
proval of the use of the build-
ing. 4 Pets Sake does not have
a thrift store so if you care to
donate please contact us from
the information at the end of
this article. There are some
beautiful antique, collectibles,
new, and used items in excellent
condition that are arriving for
this event. We are looking to
have a fun time.
Kitty cats groom themselves
on a daily basis and there are
numerous reasons why they do.
Grooming is a comfort behavior
and they find this a way to re-
lax. It also aids in removing
unwanted hair, skin flakes, and
spreads natural skin oils to shine
their hair. Excessive grooming
is sometimes caused when a cat
is chronically stressed and this
becomes a form of dispelling
anxiety. Aging cats sometimes
need the assistance of their care
givers and should be brushed
preferably when the feline is
relaxed. This gives you the op-
portunity to look for fleas,
lumps, abrasions, and irritations.
If anything is truly abnormal,
take it to a veterinarian.
Have a enjoyable week. Until
next time be happy just for the
love of them. For more infor-
mation on 4 Pets Sake call 386-
935-0975 or 866-727-2972.

Lupus Fund-Raiser

To Be Held Saturday

Night, Event To

Honor The Late Dina

Roberts Wasson


A' barbecue fund-raiser will
be held on Saturday, October 22
at the Suwannee River Shrine
Club in Fanning Springs. All
proceeds from this event will be
given to the Lupus Foundation.
Gerald and Joanne Roberts of
Bell lost their daughter Dina at
age 37, last October after she"
battled Lupus from age 15. The
Roberts family, Dina's husband
Stewart Wasson and their son
Josh have been working tire-
lessly to host this fund-raiser.
They will be helped out by a
host of friends who will be
contributing to the event. Not
only will this fund-raiser be a
chance to contribute to the Lu-
pus Foundation it will provide
an opportunity for those who
knew and loved Dina to come
together and celebrate her life.
She lived a rich and full life
worthy of this tribute.
The barbecue will feature
pork and chicken, baked beans,.
cole slaw, potato salad, green
beans, various casserole dishes,
Watergate salad, rolls, and
many good homemade desserts.
As you can tell the menu reads
like a covered dish dinner and it
will pretty much be that because
many of Dina's family and
friends will be bringing their
special dishes. A donation of
$7.00 for adults and $3 00 for
children can be paid at the door.
The meal will be served from
4:30 until 8:30 p.m. or until the
food runs out. The public is in-
vited to attend and support this
worthwhile cause. The Shrine


Club is located on Highway 26
just north of Fanning Springs.
Orders are being taken for a
cookbook that is being pub-
lished by the family to honor
Dina. True to her southern
heritage she was a great cook
and had collected many won-
derful recipes through the years.
She had some catering experi-
ence and just loved to talk about
and prepare wonderful dishes.
The family has compiled a rec-
ipe book to sell as an additional
fund-raiser for'the Lupus Foun-
dation. The book will feature
many of Dina's personal recipes
and recipes collected from her
family members and friends. If
anyone is interested in ordering
a recipe book they can do so at
the barbecue or by contacting
Joanne Roberts at 463-7753.
Mrs. Roberts said 500 books
have been ordered and they
have already pre-sold 300, the
price is $12.00.

FWC Says Requiring
Seniors To Pay For
Licenses Not An
Option.
Leaders at the Florida Fish
"and Wildlife Conservation
Commission iFWC,i say the\
will not recommend requiring
seniors to pa\ for fishing and
hunting licenses.
"Florida's seniors are among
the FWC's most \alued part-
ners. NIan\ of them support our
fish and wildlife conservation


efforts by donating their time
and contributing money by vol-
untarily purchasing licenses,"
FWC Executive Director Ken
Haddad said. "We appreciate
their efforts and their continued
support. We have no intention
of placing an undue burden on
seniors who can't afford to
pay."
In an effort to plan proac-
tively for fish and wildlife con-
servation programs, FWC began
developing a business plan to
ensure the financial stability of
its programs for the next five
years. Throughout this process,
the agency has been exploring
all possible solutions and has
worked with Floridians to get
their perspectives on how to
deal with funding shortfalls.
A large portion of FWC's
budget comes from user fees,
primarily licenses, permits and
specialty license plate fees. One
of the suggestions the FWC re-
ceived was to consider repealing
the senior exemption, because
federal-matching dollars are, in
part, tied to the number of paid
license holders.
"That federal funding is im-
portant, but we believe we can
come up with a creative solution
that will, enable us to capture
those dollars without having to
charge seniors directly," Had-
dad said.
Haddad added that the agency
will continue working with resi-
dents to ensure Florida's fish
and wildlife conservation pro-
grams remain financially stable.
The FWC does not plan to sub-
mit any -exemption or fee in-
crease proposals during the
2006 legislative session.

tigate when the vehicle pulled
out of the WMA road and
passed him on CR 336. Cusack
turned around again and noticed
a large bag being thrown from
the vehicle as he attempted to
overtake the vehicle. The vehi-
cle, a black Dodge truck, sped
up to approximately 90 mph.
Cusack then initiated his blue
lights to affect a traffic stop.
The truck stopped about eight
tenths of a mile later. Three
suspects were found in the
truck. Further investigation by
Officers Sam Dishman and
Cusack revealed a large tank of
anhydrous ammonia in the dis-
carded bag and the precursors to
the making of methampheta-
mine in the truck. A small
amount of methamphetamine
was also found in the truck.
FDLE and Levy County Sher-
iffs Drug Task Force was called
to assist in the investigation.
The tank of anhydrous ammonia
was found to be leaking ammo-
nia on the side of CR 336,
which was shut down until the
Williston and Rainbow Springs
fire departments arrived on
scene to bleed off the tank and
decontaminate the area and sus-
pects. A search of the sur-
rounding forest revealed a large
pickle jar containing chemicals
used in the production of meth-
amphetamine. The jar was
found at the WMA road used by
the suspects. All three suspects
were arrested resulting in 15
felony, four misdemeanor and
three warning charges. The fel-
ony charges include possession-
of methamphetamine, posses-
sion of anhydrous ammonia in
an unapproved container, pos-
session of listed chemicals,
manufacture of methampheta-
mine and tampering \ith e i-
dence.

On October 9th, Officer Matt
'Reynolds responded to a com-
plaint of dogs running deer on
pri~ ate property\ without per-
mission. When Reynolds ar-
"'ri\ed at the property. the o~ ner
?:fr the" ,W'er'eMy "hh" already,

ately turned the dogs over to

Reynolds an affidavit stating the
dogs were running deer. In a
short time, Reynolds located the
owner of the dogs and' the sub-
ject was issued a citation for
violation of the hunter responsi-
bility rule.
On October 12th, Officers
Reynolds ,and Billy. Giles
worked a night hunting detail in
'Steinhatchee Falls WMA. Over

leave the area without 'making a
stop. After approximately 30
minutes, the same truck returned
and shot at a deer approximately
100 yards away from their posi-
tion. The officers immediately
initiated a stop, and during the
search, but was unable to locate
a firearm. The subject was be-
ing uncooperative so the offi-
cers called K-9 Officer Leonard
Bailey and his dog Buddy to do
a search of the area. After a
very short period of time,
Buddy located a .223 rifle in the
thick brush adjacent to the sub-
ject's vehicle. The officers also
located a spent .223 shell. After
the above evidence was located,
the subject confessed to shoot-
ing at .a deer and was cited for
attempting to take deer with gun
and light, possession of a gun in
a closed WMA, and interference
with a Fish and Wildlife Officer
during an investigation.

Waterfowl And Coot
Season Dates Set
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has officially set dates
for this year's waterfowl and
coot season, goose seasons and
youth waterfowl hunting-days.
There are two new rule
changes for this season. Pintail
ducks may be taken for the en-
tire waterfowl season, and the
daily bag limit for scaup has
been reduced from three to two.
The first phase of waterfowl
season is November 19'h to 27th
with the second phase running
December 10th to January 29th.
Canvasback season is Novem-
ber 191' to 27th and December
10' to 30' only. Shooting hours
are one-half hour before sunrise.
to sunset.
The daily bag limit for water-
fowl is six. This six-duck limit
may consist of no more than one
black duck, one mottled duck
(Florida duck), one fulvous
whistling-duck, one pintail, one
canvasback (only during can-
vasback season), two redheads,


two wood ducks, two scaup,
four scoters and four mallards
(only two of which may be fe-
male). The daily bag limit for
coot is 15 and for merganser,
five (only one of which may be
a hooded merganser).
In Leon County and on Lake
Miccosukee (Leon and Jefferson
counties), waterfowl hunting is
allowed only on Wednesdays,
Saturday and Sundays during
the open season and on Novem-
ber 24th and 25h, December 26h,
January 2d ,and January 16.th
Lake Talquin (Gadsden and
Leon counties) and the
Ochlockonee River may be
hunted every day during the
open season.
On Lake lamonia and Carr
Lake (Leon County), the use of
'internal combustion engines is
prohibited any time during the
waterfowl and coot season.
Additionally, on Lake Micco-
sukee the use of internal com-
bustion engines .of more than
five horsepower is prohibited.
Florida also is offering a light
goose (snow, blue and Ross')
and Canada goose season. The


first phase of the light goose
season is November 19th to 27'h
with the second phase running
December 10th to January 29th.
Light geese may be taken only
north and west of the Suwannee
River. The daily bag limit for
each is 15, and the shooting
hours are one-half hour before
sunrise to sunset.
The Canada goose season is
November 19th to 27'h with the
second phase running December
1" to January 30'h. Canada
geese may only be taken on
Lake Seminole within Florida
waters in Jackson County which
are south of S.R. 2, north of the
Jim Woodruff Dam and east of
C.R. 271. .The daily bag limit is
five and shooting hours are one-
half hour before sunrise to sun-
set.
The FWC and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service (USFWS)
have designated February 4th to
5th as youth waterfowl hunting
days. During this period, only
children under 16 years of age
may hunt waterfowl, coots and
common moorhens while su-
pervised by an adult (18 years
of age or older). Shooting
hours, daily bag limits and spe-
cies restrictions are the same as
for the regular waterfowl, coot
and common Moorhen seasons.
Hunters taking migratory
game birds in Florida ,are re-
quired to have a no-cost migra-
tory bird permit either checked
or attached to their Florida
hunting license. In order to re-
ceive this permit, hunters have
.to fill out a short questionnaire
when they purchase their hunt-
ing license, The information
they provide helps the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service get a better
assessment on how many birds
are harvested each year..
The FWC suggests hunters
.peruse the "2005-06 Florida
Hunting. Regulations Hand-
book" and the "2005-06 Mi-
gratory Game Bird Regulations
for Waterfowl and Coot Sea-
son's". brochure at
MyFWC.com/hunting. These
publications also are available
from county tax collectors' of-
fices and licensed vendors.


Redfish Violations
Result In More Than
$4,100 In Fines
A routine boat stop on Octo-
ber 1s by a Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) law enforcement
officer ended with five Jackson-
ville residents going home with
citations totaling $4,100 in
fines.
Officer Dave Rosado was on
water patrol in the St. Johns
River near the Intracoastal Wa-
terway. Sgt. Sam Williafts of
the St. Johns County Sheriff's
Office Marine Unit was on
board with Rosado.
At about 3:00 p.m., Rosado
and Williams pulled alongside a
vessel that was anchored on the
south side of the river as five
people on board reeled in their
lines and prepared to leave the
area.
"I asked the boaters if they
had caught any fish, and they
said that there were a few
croakers in the cooler. 'After I
was granted permission to board
the vessel, I verified that the fish
in the cooler were croakers,"
Rosado said.
However, the officer noticed
that one of the passengers was
standing in the middle of the
boat over a compartment hatch.
"The weather conditions were
very windy and there was a
moderate chop in the river that
made the boat move about," Ro-
sado said. "The other occupants
were sitting on the gunwales of
the boat. The man on the com-
partment was having a difficult
time standing up. I asked to
look into the compartment, and
permission was granted."
Inthe compartment, which
appeared to be some kind of fish
hold, according to Rosado, was
a 39-inch redfish (red drum).
SWhen IRosado asked who had
caught the fish, the man who
had been ,standing on the com-
partment admitted he had 'Ro-
sado asked if there were any
more fish on board, and the man
said there were a "few more"
redfish in the bow/cabim area.
Rosado opened the bow door
and found an additional 19 large
red drum.
After loading all of the fish
onto the FWC patrol boat, Ro-

sado found that all of the fish
ranged from 36 to 39 inches
long, which is much larger than
the maximum regulated length
of 27 inches. The daily recrea-
tional bag limit for redfish is
one per person per day with a
size limit of not less than 18
inches and not more than 27
inches.
After further investigation,
officers discovered that four of
the five people on board had
caught the-fish and issued cita-
tions.
Benjamin Curry, 59, was
cited for four fish and garnered
a fine of $840.
Janise L. Campbell, 42, had,
caught three fish and received a
$630 fine.
Andrea G. Chevers, 45, was
cited for two fish with a $420
fine.
Willie B. Thornes, 50,
claimed 11 fish and received a
citation that totaled $2,210.
The boat owner, Roosevelt
Torrence, 61, also earned a cita-
tion for allowing redfish aboard
his boat that were not in com-
pliance with established bag and
size limits.
"This case is generating quite
a bit of interest," Rosado said.
"This is 'stealing' the resource
from folks who fish and obey
the rules."

EQUAL HOUSING
OPPORTUNrTY


B7,y the Seller Needs an .4gent
- People often wonder "can I sell
my home on my own? i Is it
possible?" Well the answer is
"yes", however here are four,
reasons to use a Realtor.
- An Jgent can sa.e \ou time. An


Agent has access to more qualified
Buyers than you do. The more
qualified prospective buyers that
see: your home, the sooner it will
sell for the price you want.
- An Agent can save you trouble. A
homeowner does not usually have,
the lime to get to know the
proipecine Buyers.: It will be
dilficull for you to decide if the
people who are looking at your
home are just "lookers" or
"buyers".'
- An Agent on the other hand, will
have interviewed prospects
beforehand to find out their
financial status, their objectives in
buying a house, the type of house
they need, and their timetable for
buying. The Agent will also be
able to gain information from them
to rule out ,many houses prior to
looking at them based on the
Buyer's needs.
- An Agent can save you money.
Having a larger pool of prospective
prospects increases your chances
of selling for the best possible
price. In addition,. A good Agent
will have a marketing plan to
advertise your home in the most
effective media;
- Lastly, an Agent can save you
hassles. Experienced Agents.are
good negotiators. Since many
Buyers are not locals, they may not
have knowledge of our market. An
Agent can educate them on our
market, and help them put together
an offer that coincides with market
conditions.
- Selling or buying a home is
stressful enough, An Agent can
help keep everyone's feathers
unruffled during the process.

Town Of Bell To
Observe Halloween
On October 31
The Bell Town Council took
action on Thursday, October 6th
to observe Halloween on
"October 31, 2005. The council
.agreed .that "Trick or Treat"
would be allowed in the
.municipality between the hours.
:of 5:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.
Trenton will also observe
Halloween on Monday, October
.31s.


:Gilchrist Commission
:Continues To Search
For Alternative Site
:For LCCC Campus
:(Continued from Page One)
:students that would attend
-classes at the LCCC Campus
and spend $10 a day in the
county would have a very posi-
,tive impact on Gilchrist County.
Tommy Jones, a resident
:farmer and neighbor of the fir-
ing range, told the board that he
:was in favor of LCCC coming
to Gilchrist County but to a
.more suitable location.
Michelle Walker Crawford,
a 12-year member of the Gil-
christ Planning and Zoning
Board, told the Commission that
the county needs to get the
greatest use of the property that
is possible. She explained that
the property the School District


18 MPG C.. Cit
--Ky '


is proposing to exchange with
the County has several sink
holes on it as well as a closed
dump near CR 307-A. She cau-
tioned the Commission that the
value of the School District par-
cel was less than the county's
Walker Curve site.
Gary Rexroat addressed the
board as a citizen and taxpayer.
He said, "Mr. Chairman, if you
are lucky as board members you
will have the opportunity to
make a decision that will impact
the communities and the county
in a very positive way, long af-
ter you serve on this board. An
institute of higher education in
Gilchrist County would give the
students an opportunity to earn
a college degree and go forward
to have better jobs and pay more
taxes to Gilchrist County."
He recalled the vision that he
and several other community
leaders shared in working to get
a nursing home located in Gil-
christ County some 25' years
ago. He explained that there
were many people that ex-
plained that this.facility would
cause a great amount of traffic
congestion to the NE Trenton
residential areas. He added that
this facility has provided the
many people of the Tri-County
area a place to be able to have a
health care facility that provides
quality nursing care, without
having to drive a long distance.
This facility also provides a
great number of jobs to many
people in Gilchrist County.
"The nursing facility has been a


great impact on this commu-
nity," Rexroat explained.
The healthcare professional
explained, "Don't have your vi-
sion blinded by the trees,. keep
your eyes on the forest. He
closed by reminding the board
of a classic quote from Larry the
Cable Guy, "Let's move on and
Git-R-Done," Rexroat added.
Alean Cameron, victims'
advocate and representative of
the Shared Sheriff's Services
Network, explained that the
county needs the college and the
educational opportunities with
it. As a member of the commit-
tee that worked to bring the
college campus to Gilchrist
County, she explained the
Sheriff's Office needs the firing
range facility to allow the offi-
cers to receive additional law
enforcement training.
Doug Crawford explained
that there is a place for every-
thing. If the community college
is located at the Walker Curve
site, economic growth would
follow to develop a congested
business area and increase urban
sprawl. If the college campus is
located in one of the two mu-
nicipalities, this would restrict
the. impairment this develop-
ment would have on the inten-
sive agriculture use in this area.
Billy Cannon, a resident of
the Bell area, told the. board that
he has students that attend the
Bell Health Academy. "I hope
they will have the opportunity
to go on to college here in Gil-
christ County and earn a higher.

Cannon explained.
Buddy Vickers asked the
board for a decision tonight that
would allow the School District
and the college to go forward

agreed to search for additional
sites and make a decision in the
November 7, 2005 meeting.

The Bell Bulldogs took an
early first quarter lead in
Gainesville and continued to
outplay the host Oak Hall Ea-
gles to earn a 35-9 victory Fri-
day night.

the end zone on a 2-yard run
with 1:19 left in the first quar-
ter. Mast found Clark in the end
zone for a 2-point conversion to
give the Bulldogs a 14-6 edge.
'Mast ard Clark continued to
be big playmakers for Bell in
the second period. The two
capped a multiple play-drive
with a 7-yard pass for a touch-
down.

great lengths for a score, but the
Bulldogs' defense limited the
host to a 21-yard field goal. Bell
held on to a 20-9 lead at half-
time.
In the third period, Bell's
Mast and Scaggs got together
for a 73-yard pass completion

crease the Bulldog's lead to 27-
9. With 2:58 remaining in the
third period, Scaggs dashed 14
yards for a touchdown. He also
ran untouched into the end zone
for a 2-point conversion.

fense by Taylor as he ran for
191 yards on 15 carries. Mast
completed 8 of 15 passes for
168 yards and 3 touchdowns.

Ray Sanders Retires
From Post Office.
(Continued from Page Two)
point in Bell) in the late 1920s.
Ray, his children and his grand-
children have received their
education in the very same area.
Obviously as growth is a major
factor in things, they have not
all been surrounded by the same
four walls during their school
years. Luckily for this family
they can easily enjoy viewing
their family history by walking
the grounds their grandfathers
farmed.
Mr. Charles C. Martin (better
known as Uncle Charlie) Ray's
uncle, was the first postmaster
of the Bell Post Office when it
was established in January
1898. Touching on the family
history again was another uncle,
Mr. Albert Martin (Uncle Bert)
the first rural carrier in the Bell
area. It seems as if it was de-
sired deep down in Ray's heart


to be an employee of the Postal
Service. After graduating from
Bell High School, Ray worked,
15 years at String Fellow Sup-
ply Company and then moved
into the position as Bell Town
Councilman where he served as
the Town Clerk for 20 years.
While waiting for that perfect
job he also had the opportunity
to actually learn all the back
roads of the county while serv-
ing as a substitute bus driver for
the Gilchrist County School
System. Did he know at that
time, what his future held in
store?
Ray Sanders was hired in


1978 by Postmaster Karl Jones
as mail handler/clerk, assistant
to the postmaster. Ray contrib-
utes much of his success
through the years to Karl Jones
as well as Don Duvall, previous
postmaster of Trenton and Ms.
Fran Bailey, present postmaster
of Bell. Ray spent 26 years in
the Postal Service, 17 years of
which he traveled to Trenton
working onsite regularly and
was also given the opportunity
on several occasions to serve as
a "loan clerk." As a clerk on
loan Ray got to meet people in
Chiefland, Cross City, High
Springs, and Old Town. The
Postal Service shared their em-
ployees, filling spaces where
needed during vacations of
other employees. Ray was quite
flexible and has become well-
known all over. So although
Bell and Trenton lose Ray as a
"regular," surrounding towns
lose Ray as a "loan clerk."
As his uncles (Uncle Charlie
and Uncle Bert) started the
family involvement in the postal
system, Ray himself is the "ca-
boose" of that family involve-
ment as he retires now to enjoy
a few other important things in
his life. If you are given the op-
portunity to retire in good health
while living close to your fam-
ily, you too can fulfill your
dreams as Ray plans to do. Ray
married the love of his life al-
most 41 years ago, Frances
Brown Sanders and together
they raised their children David
and Tracey right in the Town of
Bell. As the family continues to
grow on the family tree, Ray
and Frances enjoy their grand-
children, Clay and Brooke,
where? Living right in the
Town of Bell. Now looking
through the great scope of LIFE,
it's hard to see anything better
-than that.
Ray will continue now doing
what he has always done
best--Socialie. Anytime you
pass through Bell plan to drop
by one of the ever so popular
spots, Akins Bar-B-Q, Captain
Hugh's or Lou's. If you don't
see Ray hanging around it's
only because he's at one of the
other locations, it's church time
Randd he's at Bell Baptist where
he attends regularly or he's out
spending quality time with his
family, especially those grand
kids. Ray's not ever hard to
find but he is always busy, so
any opportunity you find to
speak with Rhay talking over the
"good ole days," will be enjoy-
able and memorable.
During this much-enjoyed
conversation with Ray he made
a very small comment that
touched my heart (a mother of
four-year-old twin boys). He
stated that he just has the big-
gest heart for and enjoys meet-
ing the elderly of the commu-
nity as well as those bright little
smiles found on the little peo-
ple. Ray mentioned that S.L.
(Sam) Townsend, mail carrier
years back; was known to place
a piece of bubble gum in the
box every Saturday for each
child living in the home. Ray
Sanders has now become the
next Sam Townsend. He must
be the largest candy distributor
in the area. Smarties are cer-
tainly a favorite and children of
all ages have enjoyed a pack
from Ray.
This article could end simply
by stating Ray will be missed at
the counter when asking for a
stamp but that sounds sad and
'permanent. Just look out for
Ray, he's always standing be-
hind his welcome smile whether
there's a counter in front of him
or not. Come join other mem-
bers of the Postal Service, cus-
tomers, friends and family on
Friday, October 21s", at the Bell
Post Office between 9:00 a.m.
and 1:00 p.m. to say. "Thanks"
to Ray. He spent many dedi-
cated years in a post office
somewhere in this Tri-County
area for you, but mostly for his'
own enjoyment.
If you retire at the end of
many long years still smiling,
still loving your job, knowing
you'll miss the "day to day"
routine stuff, then at that time,
you will know exactly how Ray
feels today. Ray's last state-
ment in this interview was "I
appreciate all the employees of
the system that made each day


workable and enjoyable. I will
certainly miss all my customers,
young and old. And "Thanks so
much" to all of you for being a
part of ALL THE GREAT
YEARS I have been given
serving you."

We here highly resolve that
these dead shall not have died in
vain; that this nation shall have
a new birth of freedom; and that
this government of the people,
by .the people, for the people,
shall not perish from the earth.
--Abraham Lincoln
