CARES Program Honors Area Agriculture


Families
Dinner Honors Farm Owners
For Environmental
Stewardship
A large crowd cheered farm
owners for their superior envi-
ronmental stewardship at a Gil-
christ County dinner on No-
vember 1. The agricultural
producers maintain operations
in the Santa Fe River Basin and
have met verifiable standards of
excellence in resource manage-
ment.
Held at Susie and Mark
DeChamplain's Heaven's Gate
Farm near Trenton, the event
was sponsored by the County
Alliance for Responsible Stew-
ardship (CARES) and the Su-
wannee River Partnership. The
partnership consists of more
than 50 local, regional, state and
national agencies and city and
county commissions, as well as
private organizations and busi-
nesses. CARES was initiated by
the Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration and the partnership to
highlight the good management
of natural resources by farmers
and ranchers as they maintain
food and fiber production for us
all...-
The November 1 dinner was
the third annual CARES dinner
organized for the Santa Fe River
Basin. Originally launched in
1999 as a voluntary initiative
for the Suwannee River Basin,
the CARES program is being
expanded to other areas of the
state. The Suwannee River Part-
nership model is also being ap-
plied in most other regions of
Florida and will facilitate the
recognition of comparable
achievements by farmers and
ranchers in those locations.
Florida Farm Bureau Presi-
dent Carl B. Loop Jr. said the
rationale behind CARES is a
simple one. "Our goal is to have
the farmers recognized by the
general public," he explained.
"The partnership is providing
results. We have to make sure
the general public knows that."
Loop added that "Incentive
based programs are the best way
to achieve sound environmental
management."
Florida Commissioner of Ag-
riculture Charles H. Bronson
urged the audience to consider
the overall contributions farm
owners make to environmental
stewardship. "Farmers are not
the only ones who have a role in
protecting the environment," he
noted. "Anyone who owns a
rooftop in Florida adds to the
problems of water quality in our
state."
Bronson pledged that the state
agriculture department will be
able to implement. Best Man-
agement Plans (BMPs) for farm
operations throughout the state
by the end of 2006. BMPs cre-
ate the scientific blueprint for
state-of-the-art natural resource
management strategies and offer
the agriculturist an opportunity
to improve existing systems on
a voluntary basis.
Farm owners who have met
the standards of excellence re-
quired by-the program receive a
CARES certificate and earn the
privilege of posting a sign on
their properties identifying them

Gilchrist Commission Decides To

Not Exchange Property Deeds

With School Board Involving

Walker Curve Parcel


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County
Commission agreed Monday
afternoon, in principal, that
there is a better site for the Lake
City Community College to be
built, other than at the Walker
Curve location between Trenton
and Bell. The board voted 5-0 to
not exchange property deeds
with the School Board involving
the firing range property.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford, the chairman of the
committee that has been
meeting to resolve the
differences involving the
property exchange between the
County Commission and the
Gilchrist School Board, gave a
report involving the committee
meetings. Sheriff Turner has


agreed to give up the firing
range after three years if
Gilchrist County will replace
the range in another location,
Commissioner Tommy
Langford explained.
Commissioner Langford
went on to explain that he had
been in communication with the
owners of Gilchrist Club to
discuss the possibility of a site
for a firing range in the rural
part of the county. The
representatives explained that
they would be glad to work with
the county regarding the
location of a firing range in the
future.
Commissioner Langford also
explained that he had talked
with Mr. Thomas Hurley, the
owner of Hurley's Waccasassa


Plantation, regarding property
that would be suitable for a
firing range. Mr. Hurley also
reported that he was interested
in working with the county
involving the future location of
a firing range.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford reported that he was
told another possible site for
Lake City Community College
might be south of Bell. The
property that is owned by the
Philpot family has been
discussed to be a suitable
location for the college campus.
Gilchrist Clerk Joe Gilliam
reported that he had talked with
a representative of the Philpot
family on Monday, but no

Character Council's Personality

For November Is Joy Powell


By Geneva Cornwell
There's an ancient saying that
reads thus: "Knock and the door
will be opened." This author
has been knocking quite regu-
larly and the door has opened to
more and more young people
she can interview who are pre-
ceptors and doers of specific
character traits, and who are
consistently looking for the "un-
sung heroes" of our precious
county.
One such heroine recently re-
ceived a phone call from this
author. Her name is Joy Powell.
She is a 2005 high school
graduate and is presently a stu-
dent at Santa Fe Community
College. Joy was president of
the Bell FFA, section leader in
the Bell Band and graduated


Joy Powell

with a 4.3 average which re-
warded her with a full 100 per-
cent Bright Futures scholarship.


Joy is a native Floridian and
was raised in the Town of Bell.
She gives credit to her whole
family for leading the way in
whose footsteps she follows.
This quiet and gentle young
lady is the daughter of Tim and
Lori Powell. Joy has one sib-
ling, a brother, and she attends
Priscilla Baptist Church. Joy
exudes the character quality, of
TRUTHFULNESS and it is that
trait which is highlighted this
month.
Joy spoke very candidly
about her thoughts on the sub-
ject of TRUTHFULNESS. She
said that TRUTHFULNESS is
important in her life "because in

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Com-
mission took action during the
Monday evening meeting to fi-
nalize the Eminent Domain is-
sue involving SE 70th Avenue.
The Commission voted 3-0 in
agreement to pay the two Lang-
ford families just less than
$80,000.
Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford dismissed herself to. sit in
the audience so she would not
be involved in any discussion or
action regarding this issue.
The Countm Commission
took a 5-minute intermission
after a decision was reached in-
volving the exchange of prop--
erty deeds with the school
board. When the board resumed
the meeting, it was reported that
Chairman Gentry left the meet-
ing to.accompany his wife out
of town. I feel the Chairman's
absence was very timely.
Chairman GentrU did not
recognize the attorney. as the
agenda was published, to give a
report while he was in atten-
dance in this meeting. I belie e
they Attorney's Report was
passed up'by the Commission
Chirrman until''the end bf' the
meeting, thus allowing himself
to not be in the meeting when


the board was scheduled to take
action on the Langford's settle-
ment.
I feel this was just conven-
ient for the chairman to sidestep
this issue since he and Commis-
sioner Tommy Langford are the
only two remaining members of
the commission who were
originally in favor of this Emi-
nent Domain procedure. I am
thankful that there were three
members of the board who were
present to be able to finally fi-
nalize this issue.
The actual cost for the Emi-
nent Domain settlement was
approximately $140,000 which
was paid from Transpoitation
Impact Fee and General Reve-.
,nue Reserve funds. A majority\
of this settlement came from the
General Revenue Reserve
which is tax dollars that could
have been more wisely spent in
other ways.
I want to make this point re-
garding what an elected official
should be required to ,do when
serving in public office. The of-
ficials have to deal with all of
the issues that come before
them. It, is true that elected offi-
cials are often remembered for
the negative things that they
have been- tnol\ed in during
their term in office. The otherss
have the responsibility to re-"'
view the elected officials' ac-
tions and determine if that per-

Gilchrist County Remembers When.


Southern

C+O*OoK*I*N*G


By Cindy Jo Ayers

SSouthern...that's me. I re-
member a time when I was
much younger about twenty or
so and shopping the mall in
Gainesville. A prissy young
sales clerk, I assume that she
was a student at UF, questioned
my accent. Imagine that, this
clerk thought I had an Alabama
accent. I told her no I was from
Levy County and she just
couldn't believe Levy County
wasn't in Alabama. Of course
drawing from my deeply seeded
Southern heritage I politely ex-
plained that Levy bordered
Alachua County. I remember
walking through the mall trying
not to speak to anyone because
apparently my accent was a bit
wrong.
My, how the years changed
me; if anything I make it a point
to be.just as Southern as I can
now. I'm quite proud of my
heritage and all the preceding
generations of my family who
have attributed to my accent.
They were the ones who
grubbed the palmettos and cut
the virgin timber to clear the
first fields and planted the first
crops in this area. Not only did
they pass along a little accent
they gave me a sense of who I
am and where and who I came
from. I was taught as many of
y'all were to say, "Yes, ma'am"
or "No, sir" and to respect our
elders. As children when we
were bad we were told "Don't
be ugly," which of course had
noting to do, with our outward
appearance. We were often re-
minded that "Pretty is as pretty
does." In the South well man-
nered children are direct reflec-
tions of their upbringing.
Judi Bishop who works at the
Journal and I have been kidding
around about why I always
capitalize Southern or South

son-is worthy to be re-elected.
If an elected official is not
responsible enough to deal N ith
the issduel that 'hey are paid to
do, then maybe someone else
.could serve the county in a
more respectful manner.
It is not fun to attend public
meetings and listen to people
that are upset regarding an is-
sue. An individual who decides
to run for public office should.
consider this and man\ other
things before they decide to:
seek an office. The approximate
$26,000 that a board member
receive annually is often the
reason why an individual runs
for public office.

NOW OPEN AT THE JOURNAL


when writing this column. This
week I found proof that capi-
talizing the "S" in South is the
thing to do. Ms. Mary Jo Mans-
field dropped by and loaned me
a book entitled What It Means
To Be Southern, by Cecilia
Budd Grimes. Miss Cecilia is an
authority on what it means to be
Southern, she is a certified eti-
quette and protocol consultant.
According to Miss Cecilia, you
should always capitalize refer-
ences to the South: a South-
erner, the South, -Southern
foods, or Southern ways. How-
ever South or Southern is used
according to Miss Cecilia it's
correct to use with a capital "S".
You know I do believe I like
that Miss Cecilia.
I can't wait for Judi to show
up to work so I can show her
this book. I know many of you
'don't know Judi but she is a real
sweetheart and a wonderful
friend and member of.the Jour-
nal team. But, bless her heart
she was born Indiana and raised
in Michigan.

I've had the following recipe
for years and my bunch really
likes it on cold days. My mother
and I were traveling in North
Georgia when: we tried this
recipe in a small restaurant be-
tween Clayton and Dillard on a
chilly late October day.

This corn bread recipe is a
little on the fancy side. Al-
though it's a little more work
than the average corn bread its
great for a special meal or to ac-

Is The Rapture Coming?
(Kent Heaton)


There seem to be a lot of signs saying the rap-
ture is about to take place. These signs are not in
the world about us but signs made by man saying
the rapture is coming soon. With all the events of
the past few years, a feeling of dread has over-
come the world and men have turned their
thoughts to the coming of the Lord. A declaration
of "rapture" is becoming more and more evident
as men see the coming of Armageddon and the fi-
nal battle of good versus evil. What does the
Bible say about the rapture and when will the rap-
tuie take place?
The idea behind the rapture is that as the last
days of the world approach, saints of God will be
rapturedd' up in secret preceding the final events
of the Tribulation, the Battle of Armageddon and
the Earthly Kingdom of Christ reigning for one-
thousand years. The first question that must be
asked is where do we find 'rapture' in the Bible.
Those who teach the coming of the rapture admit
the word rapture is never found in the Bible. The
word is/ not found but the idea of the rapture is
supposed to be based upon a test in 1 Thessaloni-
ans.
"But I would not have you to be ignorant,
brethren, concerning them which are asleep,
that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no
hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose
again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus
will God bring with him. For this we say unto
you by the word of the Lord, that we which are
alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord
shall not prevent them which are asleep. For the
Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a,
shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with
the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall
rise first: Then we which are alive and remain
shall be caught up together with them in the
clouds to me t the Lord in the air: and so shall


we ever be with the Lord" (1 Thessalonians 4:13-
17)
The question I would raise about the rapture is
where in the Bible does God ever suggest a "se-
cret taking" of the saints of God? Paul's writing
to the church at Thessalonica does not say the
coming of the Lord will be without notice but just
the opposite. Paul declares the coming of the Lord
will be with a "shout, with the voice of the arch-
angel, and with the trump of God." No one has
ever heard that sound but I assure you that "every
eye shall see him" (Revelation 1:7) and "the
hour is ,coming when all who are in the tombs
will hear his voice" (John 5:28-29).
I would ask the readers to find in the Bible the
teaching of the rapture as described by men today
and to prove with scripture (it is imperative that
God's words be used to prove the rapture) the
doctrine of the rapture.
The rapture also suggests that Jesus will be
coming to earth a third time. He came the first
time as man, He will return at the rapture and then
at the end of time (according to the teaching of the
rapture). However, the Bible teaches that Jesus
will only come a second time. "And just as it is
appointed for men to die once, and after that
comes judgment, so Christ, having been offered
once to bear the sins of many, WILL APPEAR A
SECOND TIME (emphasis mine, keh) not to
deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly.
waiting for him" (Hebrews 9:27-28). How can we
fit another "visit" by Jesus when the SECOND
TIME He appears it will be for the final judgment.
The teaching of the rapture is an interesting sto-
ry of a world that God never said would happen.
There will be no rapture as described by men but
the final judgment in the final day by the Lord and
everyone will see and hear His coming -
everyone!

From The

Of The Bell

The novel, When Christmas
Comes, written by Debbie
Macomber, is a delightful
Christmas story. The college
student living in Boston decides
not to go home to Leavenworth,
Washington for Christmas so
her mother decides to go to
Boston on a home exchange
plan. The mother's best friend
decides to go to Leavenworth so
her friend doesn't have to spend
Christmas alone. The professor
from Boston, who exchanged
homes with the mother, is now
at Leavenworth with the
mother's friend.. You will have
to read this to get the story all
straightened out.

as well as entertaining.
For the beginning reader
group I recommend Mieko
which is about a young Japa-
nese girl. It is especially inter-
esting when the mother takes
Mieko to a carnival. It is quite
different from the ones we visit.
Leo Polith is the author of the
little book.
I also read a novel written by
Lori Wick, Every Storm. Two
sisters were living in Australia
and teaching the children of a
rancher and those of his em-
ployees. Returning home from
a vacation their small plane
crashes on an unoccupied is-
land. You might like this book
and it will be found on the large
print shelves.

AARP News
The next meeting of the Gil-
christ County AARP chapter is
set for Tuesday, November 15
at 10:30 a.m. in the Trenton
Community Center. President
Geneva Cornwell is planning an
interesting program for the
members, and guests are always
welcome so bring a friend. We
hope to hear from Norm Conti,.
health committee chairman, to
find out if he has sorted out the
effects of the various plans be-
ing considered regarding the
prescription plans offered by the
-federal government. They are
so convoluted and vague; it is a
wonder that even the authors of
this legislation can understand
just what is being proposed or
the effect it will have on the cur-
rent Medicare programs or older
Americans. This new Medicare
D is getting so much attention in
the press and it only adds to the
confusion.
At the last meeting President
Cornwell brought to our atten-
tion an alarming escalation in
identity theft that many of us
were not aware was happening
in such numbers and the devas-
tating effect it has on its vic-
tims. A representative from the
sheriff's office, Daniel Slaugh-
ter, spoke about steps to take to
protect our personal information
and prevent us from becoming
victims'. His suggestions were
very welcome and his presenta-
tion was carefully crafted so as
not to make us nervous or fear-
ful for our safety but to follow
his advice to avoid being a vic-
tim. Our thanks to him for his
concern and suggestions. It's
programs like this' 'that make
coming to the meetings, so
worthwhile. .-; .; -;'i'' -
Chai4s of other committees
also bring us up-to-date on ac-
tivities in the county that are of
interest to us. Our thanks to
SRick Wieder for bringing the
, free food items to the meetings.
They are so welcome even if we
do not need them for ourselves
we all know elderly friends or
neighbors %\ ho are most grateful
for the provisions;

Lauren Ellison Wins Florida

State 4-H Poultry Judging

Contest, Going To National


Conference
Lauren Ellison, Gilchrist
County 4-H member, competed
in the Florida 4-H State Poultry
Judging contest on June 6, 2005
-at the University of Florida.
Lauren placed first in the senior
division, which entitles her to
attend the National 4-H Poultry
and Egg Conference in Louis-
ville, Kentucky in November to
compete in the 4-H National
Poultry Judging contest.
The annual conference allows
4-H'ers from all over the coun-
try to compete in educational
events that help them learn to
make and defend decisions,
speak publicly, and gain skills
in poultry-related subject mat-
ter. In the poultry and egg
judging contest, 4-H'ers judge
ready-to-cook poultry, live pro-
duction hens, and market eggs.
The poultry judging contests
teach participants to make deci-
sions in an orderly manner, use
reasoning skills and to commu-
nicate decisions. They also
learn to use USDA grading cri-
teria to determine quality of
ready-to-cook poultry and eggs.
Life skills learned are becoming
an informed consumer, food
safety, leadership, communica-
tion skills, problem solving and
decision making.

GTLCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Character First!
Theme Of The
Month Is
"TRUTHFULNESS"
By Geneva Cornwell
TRUTHFULNESS: earning
future trust by accurately re-
porting past facts. Knowing and
following the truth affects every
part of our lives. It is the basis
for decision, actions, words, re-
lationships and beliefs. But
knowing the truth is only half
the equation. Complete
TRUTHFULNESS requires ac-
tion based on the facts: telling
the truth, encouraging others to
tell the truth; purpose to never
cheat or steal; admitting it when
I am wrong not exaggerating to
make things seem different than
what they are.
TRUTHFULNESS is habitu-
ally representing the truth; tell-
ing the facts; corresponding
with what is genuine or real;
speaking the truth with sincer-
ity. It is from the Old English
word treowe that we get our
words true, trust, truce and
troth (as in betroth). We get our
word for TRUTHFULNESS
from the Old English word tre-
owth, which means "to be firm,
solid or steadfast." Truth is
universal principles in life that
will never change.
Human nature desires a good
reputation. People want others
to think of them as truthful, de-
pendable and diligent. How-
ever, when people knowingly
do something wrong they often
try to justify its acceptability.
Rationalizing something wrong
often results in calling it by a
different name so it does. not
sound as bad. However, no
matter what name it is given,
deception is always wrong and
will stain one's reputation.
Deception is bending the
rules, telling a white lie, telling
a partial truth, not reporting
something that is wrong, lying
to protect someone else, exag-
gerating something to be differ-
ent than it really is and making
excuses. True'information may
change but the truth never
changes. As an authority one
must be committed to commu-
nicating that which is true.
TRUTHFULNESS is more than
just accurate words. It is possi-
ble to lead someone to the
wrong, conclusion by silence,
tone ,gf voice, expression, or
gestures. A solid commitment
to TRUTHFULNESS is the
only foundation for stability in
life. Fluctujatin standards pro-
duce inconsistency. A person's
views and belief should be a re-
sult of understanding the truth
rather than popular opinion.
In this ever-changing world
,of technology and expanding in-
formation, it is essential to
know the truth. One placed in
leadership is held to a higher
standard than others.
TRUTHFULNESS :gives credi-
bility to a leader. A person's
position may give him or her
authority to be obeyed, but is
character which people trust and
admire. Those in authority must
watch their words very care-
fully. True statements can often
be hurtful or inappropriate. A
wise leader must "weigh" each
word before speaking. Truth
should be balanced with discie-
tion. Trust is the reward for
being truthful. Others can trust
a person who consistently dem-
onstrates TRUTHFULNESS.
The more a person proves to be
truthful, the more trust others
will have in his or her character.
Since character training is a
life-long process, learning about
TRUTHFULNESS is one way
we can continually demonstrate
in Gilchrist County that it surely
is a County of Character be-
cause it is a County that Cares.


Save Our Suwannee
To Be At Down
Home Days

One of Save Our Suwannee's
primary missions is to raise
public awareness of the envi-
ronmental health of the Suwan-
nee River and its tributaries.
To do this we set up an edu-
cational display at all of the lo-
cal arts and crafts festivals. It's


fun to attend the festivals and it
is even better to meet new peo-
ple who love the river the way
we do.
We need volunteers to help us
educate the public at these local
events. If you are interested,
please contact Annette Long
at 352-490-8930 or at
mlongalong@bellsouth.net. We
will have our information.kiosk
set up at the Trenton Down
Home Days on Saturday, No-
vember 12. You are invited to
come and see what we do.

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well is it Fall or not? I was
overjoyed a week or so ago
when a real chill was in the air
and people were frantically
looking for sweaters, jackets
and that ever-popular sweat
shirt and pants that makes us all
look like a distant cousin of the
Pillsbury doughboy. The tem-
perature dropped into the 40s
and 50s and even skidded
around the upper 30s. I know
that a lot of you hated it but I
was in seventh heaven, so to
speak.
The dogwoods changed their
coats of green and donned
bright coats of red and orange.
Other. trees followed suit and
one could sense that the earth
was preparing for a long win-
ter's nap.
No sooner had we begun put-
ting away our Summer attire,
promising to lose at least 20
pounds before cramming all that
cellulite into that paii of "Daisy
Dukes"' nextyear, ;when Miss
Autumn took off and left us
with temperatures in the high
80s. no, I say enough's enough.
I know...I know...it's Indian
Summer.' No... No... and more
no. Indian Summer is azure
skies, bright sunlight and
mounds of white fluffy clouds.
It's, crisp nights and mornings
filled with the chatter of squir-
rels and birds getting ready for
Winter. It's a cool crisp breeze
blowing leaves from the trees.
It's leaves playing tag with one
another and the taste of smoke
in the air...that's Indian Sum-
mer, not 870 temperatures and
folks running around in shorts.
Well, at any rate, it's Novem-
ber and that means turkey no
matter what the weather decides
to do. And what's
more... Christmas... has man-
aged to sneak up on each and
everyone of us again this year.
Where does the time go?
Our last "Make It and Take
It" day was Wednesday, Octo-
ber 26. Twenty-five Joyful
Hearts came together in the


"spirit" of Halloween. We had
lots and lots of fun and food.
Some of us wore our Halloween
T-shirts and jewelry. But
Marvine Deer was the hit of the
day in her oh-so-cute pioneer
outfit complete with shawl and
bonnet...a friend of hers made it
for her.
The craft was autumn napkin
rings and while only a few
made them, they turned out
really nice. Elaine said she's al-
ready used hers.
Our next regular meeting was
Wednesday, November 2 at
10:00 a.m instead of 9:00 a.m.
because it was our Thanksgiv-
ing covered dish luncheon and
I'm told it was oh so good and
more. I was unable to attend due
to a really bad back and neck
problem that I'm still dealing
with, unsuccessfully I might
add.
From what I can gather, the
tables were laden with all man-
ners of wonderfully delicious
dishes and desserts. Bonnie, my
sister, brought me home a sam-
pling of some of the covered
dishes and of course yummy
cakes, pumpkin bread and apri-
cot bread pudding... could you
ask for more?
Some folks worked on their
projects in progress but mostly
folks used this time to visit,
catch up on the latest and talk
about the bountiful feast they
were about to enjoy.
The guest'list was as follows.
Jackie Moore, Alice Binns,
Martha Foster, Cathy Strom,
Sylvia Arthur, Barbara Merick,
Elaine Nemeth, Lurie Twist, Lu
Rowland, Heidi Kamp, Barbara
Strom, Leona Wirta, Judy
Pflueger, Rita Simcoe, Lera
Townsend, Bonnie Edwards,
Evelyn Wood, Paulene Martin,
Ann Taylor, Pat Luka, Maxine
Hale, Marvine Deer, Matty
Turner, Mary Lou Ryder and
her neighbor Ruth Gordon and
an old friend, Bonnie Weeks (or
is it Weaks?).
At last it was time to lay aside
crafts and quilting and time to
give thanks for oui many
blessings, not the least of which
is this fine group of friends and
neighbors.
When everyone was "stuffed"
it was clean-up time and those


not too full to move got right to
the task.
Several reminders are in or-
der. One, there will be a meet-
ing on Wednesday, November
16, for those who would like to
come. Two, we should be get-
ting our Christmas toys to
Elaine then or at the latest the
December 7 meeting. Three,
our fabulous "Ladies Night
Out" quilt is off the frame and
ready for binding. Four, our
new club quilt will be laid out
giving everyone a chance to
move squares around and five,
do plan on attending the fire de-
partment's spaghetti dinner on
Saturday, November 19, from
5:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., when we
will be honoring one of our
own, Specialist Candice May.
Spc. Candice May is in the
United'States Army and is now
stationed in Italy. She is the re-
cipient of a Purple Heart, hav-
ing been wounded in Iraq.
Spc. Candice May is the
granddaughter of one of our
members, Serena May and Ge-
neva Carver, another member is
her great-aunt. Her parents,
Carol and Dick Laur, reside in
Orlando. 1
The Carver family has been a
part of Gilchrist County for
generations and Candice was an
JROTC member at Bell High
School from which she gradu-
ated. Bell's JROTC Color
Guard will be on hand to pre-
sent The Colors as part of the
program.
We may not all share the
same views and opinions on the
reason for this war or the valid-
ity of it. However, we all share
the same feelings and sense of
gratitude to this fine young
woman and the thousands of
men and women like her that
every day put themselves in
harm's way for us. Please, try
to attend this very special occa-
sion.
And we thank God that He
has answered the prayers of
many on behalf of Candice re-
membering Acts 27:23...For
,last night an angel of the God to
whom I belong and whom I
serve stood by me.

Melissa Brown

Receives National

Degree


BES Fourth Grade

Class Puts Service

Above Self


Shown are Bill Martin and Melissa Brown.


Once upon a time, not so long
ago, just down the road there
was an elementary school
named Bell. Within Bell Ele-
mentary School was a fourth
grade class. Now this was no
ordinary fourth grade class, this
was Mrs. Becker's fourth grade
class.
Well, as the story continues,
the PTA at Bell Elementary
School holds an annual mem-
bership drive. Legend has it,
the class enlisting the most par-
ents wins a $50 gift card from
Wal-Mart to utilize as they see
fit. Surprise, surprise, surprise!
Mrs. Becker's class met the
challenge and won the reward.
Just so happens, during all of
this excitement, this amazing
group was' also studying about
hurricanes. They were reading
articles, creating a bulletin
board of hurricane news,
watching the weather adviso-
ries, listening to stories and
even met some folks touched by
hurricanes.


Then it happened, all at once.
No sooner had they received
their gift card and they had an
idea. Not just any 'ole idea.
This was a major "light just
clicked on" kind of idea. Why
not use the gift card to send
greetings, well wishes, nice gifts
and good cheer to the children
most recently hit by the hurri-
cane.
Mrs. Becker allowed this
awesome group of fourth grade
ladies and gentlemen to vote on
their idea. In a 100 percent,
majority rules, landslide vote,
Mrs. Becker's class voted to
buy gifts and ship them off!
As our story draws to an end,
the happily ever after comes
from the good news that Mrs.-
Becker's, class met the chal-
lenge; the challenge of devel-
oping into wonderful young la-
dies and gentlemen, the
challenge to help our fellow
man, ard the challenge to put
service above self.
The End.

Float Building
By Christie McElroy
Tiger spirit was everywhere
during homecoming week
which became apparent on Fri-
day, October 28, 2005 for the
Homecoming Parade. Students
from all grade levels worked
hard to show their support for
the Tigers. However, in the
end, the'Freshmen and Junior
Class tied for first place in the
Float Building competition.
The freshmen's theme was Ti-
gers Enjoy Their Trip As the
Bucs Go Down with Their Ship.
The ninth graders worked
hard all week building the float.
The students learned to use
power tools and were covered
with paint on numerous occa-
sions. The students received
donations of supplies from sev-
eral businesses. Additionally,
Kirk Griffin, Brooke Griffin's
dad, arranged for the use of
Donnie Hicks' hay trailer. Par-
ent of Andrea Hite, Robert Hite,
rented a Tiger costume for
Amelia Cline to wear on the
float and at the Tiger Growl,
The class greatlN appreciates
4all that these businesses and
parents did. We could not have
'done it % without you!

Finally after many hours of
labor and perseverance, Kaitlyn
Sauls dressed as the pirate fol-
lowing behind the float trying to
get back aboard the ship.
Christian Schnier, football
player, Andrea Hite, cheer-
leader, and Amelia Cline, the
STiger, rode through town on the
float jamming to the tunes of the
Beach Boys. Corey Szabo was
aboard the float spraying smoke
from the cannons of the Icap-
sized boat. Many other students
worked extremely hard building
the float.
We are so proud of the entire
ninth grade class. The students
rose to the challenge and
worked together to accomplish
the task. The float required
many hours of hard work, but it
paid off! We look forward to
next year. Great job ninth
grade!

Gilchrist County
Schools' Pre-K
Programs Off To A
Good Start
The Gilchrist County Early
Childhood Programs are off to a
great start for the new school
year. We now have ten blended
pre-k classroom's offering vol-
untary pre-k for four-year-olds;
school readiness pre-k for three
*and four-year-olds; and pre-k
special needs for children who
are three or four. All of these
programs have been blended
throughout the ten classrooms.
This was done to better meet the
needs of the children in each
classroom while allowing more
programs to be offered in our
county. We feel that we are
reaching more children and
making our programs available
to more families who are in
need of services.
We are very excited about our
new programs. We have a rig-
orous academic focus. Our new
curriculum, Opening the World
of Learning, (OWL) is very
challenging but also lots of fun.
The OWL curriculum is a com-
prehensive )early literacy pro-
gram emphasizing oral lan-
guage, book interest and
understanding, 'phonological
awareness, print understanding,
alphabet and letter knowledge,
vocabulary building and early
math/science skills. We have
also adopted the math curricu-
lum that compliments the OWL
curriculum.
We know that a good founda-
tion for education in the early

Pat Notnagle has discovered making quilts is great for
your health. This is her second one made from the
"Churn Dash" pattern but called "Grecian Block." By
changing the bars around the center it makes the pattern
look so different.


Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, November 3, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Quilting went on as usual and
the green and white "Log
Cabin" will soon be finished.
B.J. has quilted a "Dresden
Plate' and it is beautiful. She
quilted it by the piece and that
means twice the quilting. This
way of quilting was done
many years ago when the cot-
ton that was used had to have
stitching close together or the
cotton would ball up. Today,
our batting is much better and
we can quilt in wider spaces.
Our prayers are with the
family of Doris Lazarus. Doris
was a member of the Levy
County Quilters for several
years when we met at the
Central Florida Electric con-
ference room. She taught
many to do Hardanger and we
all enjoyed her so much. She
would make crosses and but-
terflies for each of us. I,put
mine in a frame and it hangs, in
the quilt room here at the mu-
seum. She left us with many
Wonderful memories.
SJarrod and nine boys were
out on Wednesday and as there
,was no moing to be done
they cleaned inside, putthings
away, and did the many things
that help us keep going. The)

Life South Blood
Drive What Colors

It is the time of year when
The University of Florida and
Florida State University -are
gearing up for their big rival
game. To have a little fun with
this friendly competition,
LifeSouth Community. Blood
Centers Civitan Region, is
holding the. "What Colors Do
You Bleed" blood drive, where
football fans can show their true
colors by donating blood in-
support of their favorite rival
team.
"We know college football
fans are passionate about their
favorite team, so we would like
to inspire everyone to use that
same passion for saving lives by
donating blood." said LifeSouth
District Director Carolyn Quin-
tanilla.
The blood drive will run Fri-
day, November 18 and Satur-
day, November 19, at
LifeSouth's Chiefland Donor
Center, 120 East Rodgers
Boulevard. Everyone is invited
to "tailgate" each day for lunch
with hotdogs, chips and soda
provided by the blood center.

continually working for the
growth of this non-profit ven-
ture and putting in our own
capital should not be expected
to carry the ball by ourselves.
Paying your dues is not enough.
You should attend the meetings
with your input. The last thing
we want to do is increase the
dues. Other organizations
charge $25 and more. We have
been able to cut the cost of
meeting n 'local restaurants by

to one of our directors Tina
LaLonde for that. Two'of our
members are "watch dogs over

expenses. The least thing you
can do is attend the meetings.
You stand to benefit by your in-
\ohlement; even if just by tele-
phone, e-mail, or a written note
of your'suggestions and desires.
Tina is well-aware of the
problems artists can face. She
was the head of the Amherst
Arts Council for six years allo-
cating federal funds for both the
visual and performing arts. If
you aren't aware, federal funds.
were cut out three years ago,
from not only the public benefit,
but aNso from our public school
systems. I'm sure I don't need
to remind you the value artist
play in our life. 'They are the
designers of the homes you live
in, the cars you drive, the
clothing you wear, and the
pleasure you derive from
watching movies and the works
of art you are often able to enjoy
on walls or on the furniture you
have in your home. Yes, artists
are the leaders of design and
often the leaders of thought.
We have been given another
beautiful Fenton vase to raffle
off. The first "BBQ in a Box"-
was also donated to us and was
won by a member who chose to

Levy County Horse
Club Has Breast
Cancer Awareness
Trail Ride
By Bonnie Wilson
The Levy County Horse Club
held its fifth annual Breast Can-
cer Awareness Trail Ride in
conjunction with Forest Aware-
ness and Greenways Trail
Month at the Goethe State For-
est Tidewater Trailhead on Sat-
urday, October 22. Trail riders
from near and far showed their
support by coming out to this
worthy event. This fund-raiser
is held each year in order to give
the proceeds to Shands Cancer
Center for the many items and
services needed for the local
breast cancer patients.
Everyone started his or her
day with a $5 donation for a
pancakes, sausage, coffee and
juice breakfast. Who could re-
sist such a tempting aroma?
Not many, as the trailhead was
quickly filled with horses and
riders in every available space.
The trail ride was at your own
pace on a trail of your choice;
be it three miles, seven or 12.
There was something for every
rider of different levels of skill.
It was wonderful to see mothers
and fathers with daughters and
sons, husbands and wives, and
families riding off together on
this memorable occasion.
After lunch, an auction was
held to raise funds for this-
event. There were some beauti-
ful. hand-crafted items from
some of the Levy County Horse
Club's own members, as well as
items which were donated by
the many businesses in.several
counties in our area. LCHC
wishes to thank all of the busily
nesses, individuals, newspapers
and radio stations who gave so
generously. A special thank
you also goes to the generous
bidders.
Thank you all from the bot-
tom of our hearts because we.
know we could not have had
such a successful fund-raiser
without help from our friends.
We're: alreadyd looking and
planning ahead for ne\t year's
event. Happy trails!

This is the place for your

Veteran's Service
Office News
First, let me just say that it is
an honor for us.to pay respect to
those who have served and are
serving in our military services.
Some folks get confused about
Veterans Day and Memorial
Day. Let me just put it in the
simplest of terms. Veterans
Day honors those veterans liv-
ing and Memorial Day honors
those who have passed away.
November 11h is Veterans Day.
While Gilchrist County pres-
ently doesn't have an organized
Veterans Day ceremony, it is
hoped that in the future it will.
The Historical Society annu-
ally sponsors the Memorial Day
activities in May. Realizing that
this type of activity does require
funding it is hoped that our local
community will respond to the
need to honor our living veter-
ans. Please support our veterans
by attending one of the many
local Veterans Day ceremonies.


An update on the Fiscal Year
2007 VA Budget In the 109th
Congress, meeting the nation's
commitment to its veterans is a
national priority and the ongo-
ing cost of war. Veterans -
past, present, and future earn
the benefits provided them by a
grateful nation. Full funding of
the Department of Veterans Af-
fairs (VA) is a major legislative
objective of each major vet-
eran's service organization each
and every fiscal year. Unfortu-
nately, all enrolled veterans still
do not receive timely access to
health care within VA's own
acceptable access standards.
Regrettably, there are still eligi-
ble veterans prohibited from en-
rolling in VA's integrated health
care delivery system because of
inadequate funding.
The American Legion partici-
pated in the congressional
hearing in the House veterans '
Affairs Committee where the
VA model and methodology for
determining the VA's annual

budgetary needs is set. The
American Legion remains con-
vinced the current model and
methodology is still broken and
is deeply concerned that VA of-
ficials will be forced, once r
again, to ration care in Fiscal
Year (FY) 2006.
Medicare Reimbursement -
VA is prohibited from billing
the Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services (CMS) for
the treatment -of Medicare-
eligible veterans for non-
service-connected medical con-
ditions. Included in VA's dis-
cretionary funding are collec-
tions from veterans and third-
party health insurance compa-
nies, except Medicare. Medi-
care is the nation's largest
health insurance program a
federally mandated, prepaid
health insurer. All veterans en-
rolled in the nation's largest in-
tegrated health care system
(VA) are placed in priority
groups identified in Title 38,
USC. Priority Groups 1-6 are
clearly entitled to certain levels
of care at no cost to the veteran.
Enrollment of Priority Groups 7
and 8 veterans is conditional on
the ability to bill and collect co-
payments and third-party reim-
bursements. The vast majority
of Priority Groups 7 and S \et-
erans are Medicare-eligible.'
therefore, having an incredibly
adverse fiscal impact on VA's
capability to retrieve third-party
reimbursements. This fiscal
quagmire forced a prohibition
on all new enrollments of Prior-
ity Group 8 veteranss. The
American Legion strongly rec-
ommends allowing VA to bill
and collect from CMS for the
treatment of Medicare Eligible
Veterans.
Recently, a representative of
the American Veterans Organi-
zation. AMVETS. visitedd and
would like to know if there is
enough interest in the commu-
nity to start an AMVETS Post.
While most service organiza-
tions have membership restric-
tions, such as wartime service,
the AMVETS represents all %et-
erans of all eras. including the
reserve forces. Much like our
American Legion post, the ini-
tial members will become char-
ter members.' Positions will
need to be filled and at least ten
charter members signed up be-
fore being officially chartered.
As a veteran I welcome the
AMIVETS organization to our
county and wish them the great-
'est of success. The power to
lobby and support veterans "
concerns comes with every or-
ganization representing ieter-
ans. Nlost sa\%)y veterans have
realized'the power of represen-
tation already and having :an-
oiher powerful veteran's orgaini-'
zation behind us just gives us
another voice on Capitol Hill.'
Persons interested in becom-
ing charter members and filling
the important post positions are
asked to contact me before the,
end of the calendar year.
The County Veterans Service
Office is open on Tuesdays.
Wednesday and Thursdays.

pealed to boaters to be
especially cautious to look out
For manatees and be alert to
changing speed zones on wa-
:erways.
Manatees generally start trav-
eling to warm water when the
air temperature drops below 50
degrees or when the water tem-
perature dips to 68 degrees. The
FWC changes seasonal speed
zone signs on many waterways
to accommodate manatee mi-
gration.
The FWC said boaters should
scan the water near, and in front
of, their vessels for swirls re-
sembling large footprints, a re-
petitive line of half-moon
swirls, a mud trail or manatee
snouts or tails breaking the sur-
face.
Kipp Frohlich, leader of
FWC's Imperiled Species Man-
agement Section, said boaters
can help manatees have a safe
migration by: Staying in
marked channels, wearing po-
larized sunglasses to improve
vision, abiding by posted boat
speed zones, using poles, pad-
dles or trolling motors when in
close proximity to manatees,
and having someone aboard to
scan the water for signs of
manatees while their vessels are
under way.
"If you think you see a
manatee, gi.e it plenty of room,
because it' may not be alone. It
may have a calf or be traveling
wsith other manatees." Frohlich
said.
In Levy County, beginning
December 3, 2003, there is a
Year-Round No-Entry Zone -
Manatee Springs State Park.

manatees, visit

facility consists of 6 freestall barns,
a milking parlor, commodities area
and a 3.6 million gallon waste stor-
age pond system. Manure will be
fliished from the milk parlor and
barns and directed to, the wastewa-
ter treatment system. 3,500 lactat-
ing cows will housed in the freestall
barns and the dry cows will reside
on 98 acres of open pasture. Heif-
ers will reside on 349 acres of open
pasture and calves will be housed in
four barns. Flush water from the
calf barns is also collected and
treated.
A Nutrient Management Plan
(NMP) has been developed for this
facility, based on an average of
346,000 gallons per day for barn
clean-out, sprinklers, and milking
parlor flush and includes 4 waste
storage ponds located throughout
the production area, and 267 acres
for wastewater irrigation. The stor-
age ponds are designed to contain a
25-year, 24-hour storm event, based
on a 3.7 acre production area.
Clean water from roof run-off is di-
verted away from the waste collec-
tion system.
The system is designed as fol-
lows: wastewater from the freestall
barns and main milking parlor will
flow by gravity or be pumped to a
sand separator and then into a two
celled solids separator. Solids re-
moved from the separator will be
stored on a concrete pad, and will
be hauled off-site. Filtrate from the
separator will gravity flow to the
first waste storage pond (WSP1).

fourteen days of receipt of such no-
tice, regardless of the date of publi-
cation.
The petitioner shall mail a copy
of the petition to the applicant at the
address indicated above at the time
of filing. The failure of any person
to file a petition or request for en-
largement of time within fourteen
days of receipt of notice shall con-
stitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative
determination (hearing) under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57, Florida
'Statutes. Any subsequent interven-
tion (in a proceeding initiated by
another party) will be only at the
discretion of the presiding officer
upon the filing of a motion in com-
pliance with Rule 28-106.205,
Florida Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the mate-
rial facts on which the Depart-
ment's action is based must contain
the following information:
(a) The name, address, and
telephone number of each
petitioner; the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number
of the petitioner's represen-
tative, if any; the Depart-
ment permit identification
number and the county in
which the subject matter or
activity is located;
(b) A statement of how and
when each petitioner re-
ceived notice of the De-
partment action;
(c) A statement of how each
petitioner's substantial in-
terests are affected by the
Department action;
(d) A statement of all disputed
issues of material fact. If
there are none, the petition
must so indicate;
(e) A statement of facts that the
petitioner contends warrant
reversal or modification of
the Department action;
(f) A concise statement of the
ultimate facts alleged, as
well as the rules and statutes
which entitle the petitioner
to relief; and
(g) A statement of the relief
sought by the petitioner,
stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the
Department to take.
Because the administrative
hearing process is designed to for-
mulate final agency action, the fil-
ing of a petition means that the De-
partment's final action may be
different from the position taken by
it in this notice. Persons whose


substantial interests will be affected
by any such final decision of the
Department have the right to peti-
tion to become a party to the pro-
ceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above.
In addition to requesting an ad-
ministrative hearing, any petitioner
may elect to pursue mediation. The
election may be accomplished by
filing with the Department a me-
diation agreement with all parties to
the proceeding (i.e., the applicant,
the Department, and any person
who has filed a timely and suffi-
cient petition for a hearing). The
agreement must contain all the in-
formation required by Rule 28-
106.404, Florida Administrative
Code. The agreement must be re-
ceived by the clerk in the Office of
General Counsel of the Department
at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Flor-
ida 32399-3000, within ten days
after the deadline for filing a peti-
tion, as set forth above. Choosing
mediation will not adversely affect
the right to a hearing if mediation
does not result in a settlement.
As provided in Section 120.573,
Florida Statutes, the timely agree-
ment of all parties to mediate will
toll the time limitations imposed by
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, for holding an ad-
ministrative hearing and issuing a
final order. Unless otherwise
agreed by the parties, the mediation
must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agree-
ment. If mediation results in set-
tlement of the administrative dis-
pute, the Department must enter a
final order incorporating the agree-
ment of the parties. Persons seek-
ing to protect their substantial inter-
ests that would be affected by such
a modified final decision must file
their petitions within fourteen days
of receipt of this notice, or they
shall be deemed to have waived
their right to a proceeding under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes. If mediation ter-
minates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify
all parties in writing that the ad-
ministrative hearing processes un-
der Sections 120.569 and 120.57,
Florida Statutes, remain available
for disposition of the dispute, and
the notice will specify the deadline
that then will apply for challenging
the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes.

Florida Receives $4.2
Million From
National Settlement
Attorney General Charlie
Crist recently announced that
the taxpayer-supported Florida
Medicaid Program will receive
more than $4.2 million as part
of a $124-million nationwide
settlement with a Tennessee-
based drug manufacturer. The
money will serve as restitution
and fines from King Pharma-
ceuticals, Inc., a generic drug
manufacturer.
A federal investigation re-
vealed that King Pharmaceuti-


cals improperly reported prices
for its products to the federal
government. These incorrect
prices were used by the gov-
ernment to calculate rebates
King Pharmaceuticals was re-
quired to pay to state Medicaid
programs in order to keep its
products eligible for Medicaid
reimbursement. By reporting
the wrong prices, King Pharma-
ceuticals cheated the various
states' Medicaid programs out
of millions of dollars in rebates.
As a result, taxpayers were
forced to pay a greater amount
to maintain the Medicaid pro-
gram.

an undue burden on Florida's
taxpayers and cheats the poor
and disabled from receiving
needed services," said Crist.
"This settlement eases some of
the taxpayers' burden and helps
ensure that the poor will receive
needed medicines."
The settlement was negotiated
by the Justice Department and
the National Association of
Medicaid Fraud Control Units.
Florida was one of four states
that brokered the national set-
tlement.
Since 2003, the investigative
and prosecuting efforts of the
Florida Medicaid Fraud Control
Unit have resulted in 212 crimi-
nal convictions of individuals or
entities charged in state and/or
federal courts with defrauding
the state's Medicaid program.
During the same period of time,
the unit has substantially in-
creased the amount of recouped
money, with recoveries now ex-
ceeding $139.3 million on be-
half of the State of Florida's
Medicaid program.

Building Home Equity
- Based on history in our area, one
of the surest ways to increase
financial security is to buy real
estate. Why? The answer is simple
equity.
- Equity is the difference between
what you owe on your home, and
what your home is worth. If the
balance on your mortgage is
$50,000, and you could sell your
home for $150,000 then your
equity is $100,000.
- In our market, property has been
appreciating at a high rate,
especially the land. Sometimes
when customers call me to sell
their property, they are surprised
as to the actual value of their home
in today's market. Just over a year
ago, land was around 3-5 thousand
dollars an acre. Today it is rare to
see land for $10,000 and acre.
- You do not have to sell your
property to take advantage of the
equity you have built. Many
Mortgage companies have loans
available to take the equity out of
your home in the form of a loan.
These programs vary from lender
to lender, usually. they do have
lower interest rates than car loans,
or credit cards.
- There are other advantages as
well to owning your own home.
Visit my Website,
www.willgillespie.net or call my
cell phone to see what your equity
may be.

that he was in favor of Lake
City Community college
building a campus in Gilchrist
County, but the Walker Curve
property is not the right location
for the college. "When we have
a rodeo at the rodeo arena, we
have traffic congestion
problems," Jones explained. The
Walker Curve property is
located in an agriculture area
that will have slow moving
equipment on the roadways as
well as spraying of chemicals in
the adjacent fields. This is not
the best location for the campus
to be built in Gilchrist County,
Jones added.
Commissioner Durden asked
Dr. Hall if the community
college is willing to accept the
liability involving the firing
range? "Lake City Community
College will take full
responsibility regarding the
firing range," Dr. Hall
explained.
Dr. Hall told the five-
member county commission
that Lake City Community
College is committed to
Gilchrist County. LCCC will
continue their educational
program in the Gilchrist County
Health Academy in January
2006. He explained that the
campus will not become a
reality immediately, but within
two years the construction
should begin.
Dr. Hall explained to the
board that LCCC is willing to
backup from the firing range
and provide a separate entrance
to allow the Sheriff's Office the
use of the training facility.
Dr. Hall and Sheriff Turner
held a meeting and came to an
agreement regarding a solution
involving the firing range.
Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas asked Dr. Hall if the
board must make a decision
involving the location of the
college campus in this meeting.
Dr. Hall explained the choice of
location of the college campus
did not need to be made tonight.
Commissioner Thomas
explained that his motion was to'
not exchange property deeds
with the school board and
continue to search for an
alternative site for the
construction of the college.
Commissioner Tommy
Langford gave a second to the
motion before the board voted
5-0 in favor of the action.
The idea size of the property
for the college campus would be
from 25 to 40 acres, Dr. Hall
explained.


Character Council's
Personality For
November Is
Joy Powell
(Continued from Page One)
telling the truth, always, a per-
son can then earn the trust and
respect of other people. Living
for the truth demonstrates one's
faith in God, for having a truth-
ful life in not only being truthful
with words it's being truthful
with actions."
Miss Powell related, "Since
she started college she has heard
and has been expected to have
faith in many ideas which she
believes are wrong. She has
tried to demonstrate
TRUTHFULNESS by not going
along with those ideas but by
setting examples of what are
truth.
Joy would like to encourage
others to display
TRUTHFULNESS in their lives
by telling them "The best way
to be truthful is to do what is
right all the time, not just some
times. TRUTHFULNESS al-
ways has better results than ly-
ing or being hypocritical.
This young woman is very
eager to share her beliefs, relat-
ing to TRUTHFULNESS in
particular, with the desire to
share two passages from the Bi-
ble; 1 John 1:6 and 3:18, which
read, If we say that we have
fellowship with Him (Jesus),
and walk in darkness, we lie,
and do not practice the
truth:...My little children let us
not love in word, neither in talk;
but in action and in truth. Joy's
motto for living is those verses,
for she says that they "show we


have to be truthful by doing
what is right and in so doing we
are demonstrating God's love.
Joy gives credence to every-
one in her whole family in fos-
tering a desire to live in
TRUTHFULNESS as a way of
life. She says that each member
has taught her about the char-
acter quality of
TRUTHFULNESS by their ex-
ample and made it easy for her
to learn, and most of all, she
wants to help others understand
here in Gilchrist that we live in
a County of Character because
it is a County that Cares.

Lake Butler Man
Dies In Santa Fe
River Boating
Accident
A Sunday afternoon boat trip
on the Santa Fe River turned
deadly for a Lake Butler man,
according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) officials.
Solomon Jones, 42, was out
in a 1974 14-foot johnboat near
Ellisville, when he apparently
lost control of the vessel and
was ejected.
A witness to the accident said
Jones surfaced and was swim-
ming to shore when he went un-
der again and did not resurface.
The Union County Fire De-
partment located Jones in the
area the witness described. The
Columbia County Sheriff's De-
partment also was on the scene.
Jones was not wearing a life
jacket.
FWC officials said their in-
vestigation into the accident is
still in progress.

Kaplan Brings
Comedy Arsenal To
LCCC
Virtuoso juggler, magician,
inventor, musician, deadpan
physical comedian, all wrapped
up in one eccentric performer.
David Kaplan will perform his
comedy spectacular at the Al-
fonso Levy Performing Arts
Center at Lake City Community
College on Friday, November
18, at 7:30 p.m. This is the
third performance of LCCC's
Lyceum Series sponsored by
First Federal Savings Bank.
Inviting the audience into the
humor is the focus of the show.
Whether he's juggling bean bag
chairs, playing a melody on
"concert balloon," or acciden-
tally levitating a bowling ball,
Kaplan's preposterous blend of
dazzling skill and shameless
gimmickry is sure to amaze and
amuse.
Notable shows include a re-
cent performance as guest
"balloonist" with the Columbus
Symphony Orchestra. David
has appeared on the Statler
Brothers Show on TNN and
headlined internationally on
major cruise lines, from Ber-
muda to the Panama Canal to
Tahiti. Kaplan has opened
shows for numerous renowned
performers including Steven
Wright, Dennis Miller, David
Spade, Leon Redbone, David
Brenner, Harry Blackstone Jr.,
and the Smothers Brothers.
Since the early 80s, David has
delighted audiences of all ages
with his highly original act. In-
spired by the antics of Keaton,
Sellers, Victor Borge and the
illustrious Maxwell Smart
among others, Kaplan delivers a
most unique and hilarious
spectacle.
Kaplan's greatest talent may
lie in his uncanny ability to ap-
peal to a wide cross-section of
the audience. Spectators, young


and old are welcome into a
wonderfully strange little world
they will not soon forget.
Dinner will be served at the
Lobo Caf6 at 6:00 p.m. before
the performance. Dinner in-
cludes Spanish chicken and rice,
salad, dinner roll, dessert and
beverage.

For tickets and/or dinner res-
ervations, call the PAC box of-
fice at (386)-754-4340. The box
office is open Monday through
Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
