Springhouse Quilters Has

Another Successful Show


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The' Springhouse Quilters
held their bi-annual quilt show
this past Friday and Saturday,
November 11 and 12. The show
was held at the fellowship halls
of both the United Methodist
and First Baptist churches lo-
cated on NE 2nd Street in
Trenton.
A large crowd attended this
year's show which was entitled,
"Treasures from Home." In fact
not only were there the most
quilts entered for this particular
show but around 700 people at-
tended the event. This is the
largest crowd to ever attend this
bi-annual show. The member-
ship of Springhouse Quilters
worked tirelessly to bring this
event to the area, for the enjoy-
ment of all.
At each quilt show there are
some standout quilts and this
year was no exception. Joan
Gamble of Old Town entered a
beautiful quilt entitled "Rings
and Things." This quilt was a
study in value and was made up
of light, medium and dark tones
of black, gray and tan fabric.
Although" rs. Gamble has been
quilting for only five years her
quilt brought home the award
for Best of Show. "Rings and
Things" was machine quilted by
Mrs. Gamble on her long arm
machine. The quilt was a win-
ner all the way around because
it also received the Viewer's.
Choice award. This same quilt
won the Viewer's Choice at a
recent large show in Jackson-
ville.


Joan Gamble shown with her Best of Show quilt. "Rings
and Things" was designed entirely by Ms. Gamble.


Stephanie Metts, owner of the
local quilt shop, Suwannee
Valley Quilt Shoppe, came in a
close second for the Viewer's
Choice award receiving many
votes for her quilt entitled "To
Paul with Love." Mrs. Metts
also said the quilt shop had their
second largest business day ever


on Friday thanks in part to the
show. There were several tour
buses in town on Friday bring-
ing excited quilters to the show.
This was the fourth Spring-
house Quilters Quilt Show in
Trenton. The 2007 quilt show is
sure to showcase more of these
talented ladies' workmanship.

Fort Fanning Groundbreaking

Ceremony Held In Fanning Springs


By Anna Wild
On Thursday, November 10,
2005, the day that Fanning
Springs Mayor Carol McQueen
and so many others have waited
for, finally happened. They
broke ground on the future site
of the Fort Fanning Historical
Park.
The original Fort Fanning, we
know from records, was burned
twice and rebuilt each time.
Fort Fanning was acquisitioned
by Colonel Andrew Jackson and
the fort was named after Colo-
nel Andrew Wilder Campbell
Fanning. For those who like
trivia, Fanning Springs was
originally named Palmetto be-
fore this was built. At some
time people started calling the


area Fanning and that was what
stayed on the maps. We know
the fort was used during the
Seminole Wars around 1835 as
well as the civil War. What is
not known is the exact use of
the fort; it is believed it may
have been used for storage of
cotton, clothing and other sup-
plies. Unfortunately during the
time the fort was occupied it
was a time of change and con-
flict between the Seminole Indi-
ans and the white man. The
Seminole Indians were being
taken from their land; this may
be how and why Fort Fanning
was burned twice.
During the groundbreaking
Mark Gluckman, project team
planner, commented that this


will be "a commemorative park
to tell the story of Fanning
Springs." He also explained
that the park will link up to the
Greenway Trailhead when the
whole project is completed.
The park will be a wonderful
addition to the town and its
residents. P.E. President Joseph
Mittauer commended the many
sources of funds that came to-
gether to make this project a re-
ality. The total budget for this
project is $540,000 and was
funded with grants from The
Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Florida
Recreation Development As-
sistance Program, Department
of Community Affairs, Com-


munity Development Block
Grant, Suwannee River Water
Management District, Florida
Department of Transportation,
and the Intermodal Surface
Transportation Efficiency Act.
"It takes a lot of work to make
all the pieces fall together,"
Mittauer commented as he con-
gratulated Mayor McQueen on
all her work over the years to-
ward this project.
It took the city nine years of
work to make this historical
park a reality but the hard work
has paid off. The engineers told
me they expect Fort Fanning to
have its ribbon cutting some-
time in Spring of 2006. See you
there!

Springhouse Quilters show. Happy quilters from all over the state came to Trenton last
Friday and Saturday to enjoy this quilt show. Show Co-Chairs Lois Scott and Anna Gil-
liam were very pleased with the large attendance at this year's quilt show.

SouwIern

C*O*OoK*I*N*G


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Ladies, have you, got those
aprons out and that rolling pin
in hand? The big cooking day is
dawning and we had better be
prepared for it. Y'all know all
our families are counting on us
to pull off the biggest feast of
the year.
Now like most Southerners
I'm a real fan of good dressing.
The following recipe is for
moist cornbread dressing. Our
family likes it moist but if yours
doesn't, just cook ita while
longer and it will dry out. It
seems to me like everyone
wants their turkey dressing just
like their mother used to make.
The problem is that no one's
mother makes it the same way,.
My mother makes her dressing


a little dryer than John's
momma did.
Over the years Mrs. Ayers.
taught me how to make her
dressing. She told me that her
mother, Allie, had taught her
how to make her dressing years
ago. Allie' Claire Lee Thomp-
son, a Dixie County native,
never used turkey drippings or
turkey broth in her dressing; she
claimed it was a little too
strong. She only used chicken
broth when making dressing.
One good thing about using
chicken broth in your dressing
is that you don't have to bake
the turkey to, have drippings,
Another trick Allie, aka Granny,
had up her sleeve was that she


always added about three cups
of homemade mashed potatoes
to her dressing. Granny said the
potatoes kept her dressing from
being dry.
So now y'all know all the
Ayers' family secrets when it
comes to making moist dress-
ing. Lawdy, lawdy, I have
messed around and let the cat
out of the bag, it ain't no secret
no more.
Lets face it y'all, if the
dressing is not just right, the
meal isn't worth bragging
about.
Our family has plans of
heading to the hunting camp in
Levy County down around Shell
Mound. My family has been
enjoying Thanksgiving in the
woods since the camp was
founded in 1941. My goodness
that's my entire lifetime and
then some. We spend a lot of
time sitting around the fire and
just slowing down long enough
to catch up with each other. My
children enjoy spending, time
with their cousins and aunts and
uncles. It pleases me that we
have kept the family tradition
alive and well for so very long.
To us there is just nothing like
the chance to spend Thanks-
giving with those who are so
near to our hearts....man have
we got a lot to be thankful for.

I am the only "Full time" County Commissioner, meaning it is my only job. I spent eighteen months
comjnitted to becoming a certified county commissioner through the Florida Association of Counties. I am the
first, and presently the only, Gilchrist County Commissioner to do so. I am attending Santa Fe Community
College part time to pursue a degree in business, and believe it will help me better serve as your County
Commissioner. I resigned from ajob paying in excess of $80.000.00 per year, so the pay is not my motivation.

M- attendance record shows that I have never missed a regular Commissioners meeting in the 3
years as commissioner. I was 5 minutes late for one meeting arriving during the pledge of allegiance to the
United States, and left early one time during the last meeting. lly reason for leaving was to see my Father in
law. Hillman Cannon, in the intensive care unit at Shands Hospital. To suggest I was trying to avoid an issue is
wrong. The \ ote on the eminent domain settlement had been reduced to a formality based on the results of the
mediation settlement our,attorney recommended. ly vote would have made it a 4-0 vote, simply because it was
the least expensive choice.

Eminent Domain Issue Involving SE 70th Avenue Costs $79,140.64. The $140,000.00 as reported in the
November 10th issue of the Gilchrist journal was all the costs incurred by Gilchrist County to.construct the 2.2
mile roadway including paving for the voting precinct. Southeast Fire Department, and Gilchrist County Solid
Waste collection center.

The money spent to pave SE 70th was a very good investment. Two comparisons are:
1) County cost of $140,000.00 was less than 1 '10 th the actual 1.8 million dollars it cost to pave the road.
(Paid for by a State DOT grant)
2) The county cost of $140.000.00 for paving the 2.2 miles comes out to be $63,630.00 per mile. During the
same meeting another section of road (South of SR26 near Waccassassa) was voted to be paved in a 4-0 vote, at
a conservative cost including lime rock of $130,000.00 per mile. These coniparisons seem to support sound
spending of tax dollars to pave SE 70th.

The Wisdom of paving SE 70th is seen in the benefits for everyone in Gilchrist County.
No longer will the road department have to grade the road frequently due to high traffic volume.
*. Nearby graded roads will experience a traffic reduction as citizens alter traffic patterns to use the
improved roadway, thus costing the Road department less to maintain (remember our limestone supply
is in the opposite corner of the county).
,C* County owned vehicles will save on maintenance costs. This includes Fire equipment, ambulances,
patrol cars and staff vehicles.
An improved tax base for the property alongthe paved road will help spread county taxes more
equitably. :-
Further benefits will be experienced by our neighbors living nearer this road. This includes all voters
using the Waccassassa precinct, the Solid waste collection center, or those needing a quicker emergency
response to the North of SR26.
For the residents who live on SE 70th Av. They will enjoy less automobile maintenance, increased
property values,.and a healthier home because of the reduction of dust from the heavily traveled road.

Mr. Ayers you were wrong on many counts last week. Your misrepresentation of the facts and omission of other
facts to "To make me look bad" caused you to not only slander me, but mislead thq citizens of Gilchrist County.
I entreat you to consider this as we all need to rely on you to report events, as they occur, in Gilchrist County.

Gilchrist Remembers When........


Shown are Allen Morgan, Milam Wilson, Joe Wilson, Ray Harrison, and Alvin Davis
upon their return from a Pennsylvania hunting trip. Milam, Ray and Alvin each
brought home a big buck. During their hunt there were several inches of snow on the
ground which the men used to keep the meat frozen in their U-Haul that carried their
prizes home. The men reported having a good time and some new experiences but were
glad to return to Florida. (Photo taken from a December 1974 Journal photo file.)


A Letter To
The Editor
Dear Mr. Editor,
I was a bit surprised by
"John's Comments" in the No-
vember 10 edition. I usually
agree with or at least come close
to agreeing with the Editor's
views when it comes to the
evaluation of our county com-
missioners, but I think this time
the mark was missed by a mile.
This is how I saw the commis-
sion meeting of November 7.
The meeting opened as nor-
mal with ceremonies and
agenda changes: One change to
the County Administrator's Re-
port was to discuss the purchase
of a new fire truck for Spring
Ridge.. Chairman Gentry fol-
lowed the printed agenda
through the Clerk of the Court's
(constitutional officer) report,
but then announced that several
people from,:$.ging Ridge Vol-
unteer Fire Department were in,
the audience for the fire truck
issue. He presented the fire
truck part of his report first.
What this did was delay all the
regular county business but still
,kept "time certain" issues on
schedule. I have seen Commis-
sioner Gentry do this countless
times in the past; he simply
moves to address the issues that
people are specifically there for.
What Gentry did may not meet
the approval of Robert's Rules
of Order, but I think it is in con-
cert with how the community
wants to be treated. Most peo-
ple go to thecommissiono meet-
ing for an issue, not to hear
about how many beans the
county counted last month.
The next item taken up by the,
commission was the Walker
Curve Land Swap Deal with the
School Board, the Sheriff. Lake
City Community College and a
cast of characters in supporting


roles, all bidding their position.
This was a major deal here.
After the issue was settled,
Commissioner Gentry called for
a five minute recess. This is
standard operating procedure.
Gentry always calls for a break
every hour or so and after a long
drawn out debate. At this break,
Commissioner Gentry got a
message of a medical problem
with a family member. As he
left, I jokingly accused him of
"sneaking out early" and he
quickly explained the situation.
I can't believe I'm actually
defending a politician, but fair is
fair. Suggesting that Gentry
manipulated an agenda in real
time and then made a dashing
escape to avoid a vote that was
the "the best deal the lawyer
could get" is absurd. As far as
Gentry's- view of the Langford'
eminent domain issue and his
wanting or not wanting to vote
Son it,i~homkniows? A ha\ en-'
liked a:lot of his.votes butfair is,,
fair and he doesn't deserve it
this time.

Driving Towards The Sun
(Kent Heaton)


While I was driving to Gainesville this morn-
ing, I could not help but notice the intensity of
driving towards the east in the early morning. The
brightness of the sun could .nearly block out
everything. if one is not careful. As I continued to
adjust shades and positions to gain a clearer pic-
ture of the road ahead, the thought came to me
how much the sun blocks out everything around
me. I then realized that when we put our face to-
ward the Son of God, everything around us is
blocked out. Isn't that what the Lord wants us to
do?
Too often, we are not going towards the Lord
but in our own way. We have chosen to walk in
life our way. The paths we choose are everywhere
but where the Lord is. Our happiness comes from
the ease of doing what we want to do. When we
drive in the opposite direction of the sun, we can
see everything. So it is when. we direct our lives
away from God. We see the world and nothing
else. The Lord just becomes a backdrop to our
lives.
John, the apostle, warned "Love not the
world, neither the things that are in the world. If
any man love the world, the love of the Father is
not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust
of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the
pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the
world. And the world passeth away, and the lust
thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abid-
eth forever" (1 John 2:15-17). The problem is
that we are not looking to Jesus in our lives but
we are looking at the world. When we look at the
,world, we have to turn our backs on the will of
God.
Giving our lives totally to the Lord will block
out the things of this world. We are 'in the world'
but we should not be 'of the world.' Paul said that
we are to "be dead with Christ from the rudi-
ments of the world" (Colossians 2:20). To the
church at Corinth he writes, "Now we have re-
ceived, not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit

which is of God; that we might know the things
that are freely given to us of God" (1 Corinthians
2:12).
Following Christ will blot out the world so that
we only see Him. Our allegiance is solely to the
Lord and there' will be no room for the things of
this world. The focus of Jesus in the garden of
Gethsemane was only upon the will of His Father.
"He went away again the second time, and
prayed, saying, 0 my Father, if this cup may not
pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be
done" (Matthew 26:42). The will of the Father
was the only thing that Jesus could see and He fol-
lowed the will of God. As we bear our cross
(Luke 14:27) we must keep our eyes on the Lord.
As the brightness of the glory of the Lord shines
brighter in our lives, the less we will see the world
about us and the more we will see the will of the
Father.
It is not easy to drive towards the sun. It is not
an easy task to give our lives totally to Christ.
There is a desire to hang on to the world and try to
serve the Lord too. "No man can serve two mas-
ters: for either he will hate the one, and love the
other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise
the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon"
(Matthew 6:24). Our task is to trust in the Lord
and mold our lives to live for Jesus. "I beseech
you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God,
that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reason-
able service. And be not conformed to this world:
but be ye transformed by the renewing of your
mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and
acceptable, and perfect, will of God" (Romans
12:1-2). When we do this, nothing in the world
will matter nor will the world matter to our lives.
We serve Jesus and Him crucified.
What direction is your life going? Come to the
Lord and let Him guide your life. It will make
everything in the world disappear. The brightness
of His glory will shine in your hearts.

Ayers Health And
Rehab Enjoys Family
Trick-Or-Treat Night
Ayers Health and Rehabilita-
tion Center enjoyed the Com-
munity Trick or Treating on
Halloween night. Our residents
dressed up and lined up on the
porch to hand out yummy treats
to about 1,000 princesses, super
heroes, ghosts and goblins who
came out to trick-or-treat.
A big thank you to all of the
organizations and individuals
that donated bags of candy for
this wonderful annual event.
Our residents always enjoy
seeing the families having fun
and young people dressed up.
The smiles we see on their
faces are priceless. We encour-
age family and community in-
teraction here at Ayers. Thank
you to our volunteers who came
out to help our residents get
ready for their ghostly encoun-
ters. You are greatly appreci-
ated for all you do for Ayers
Health and Rehab.

Robert Lawson is the feature

heartily recommend Ben and
Me if you are looking for good
entertainment. It is ageless in

America's most popular novel-

Clean Out Your
Garage And Clean
Up On Your Taxes
It's never too early to plan for
your taxes and one great way to
get a tax deduction is to donate
your used vehicle to the Ameri-
can Lung Association of Flor-
ida, Inc. before the end of the
year.
It's so easy! Just call the
American Lung Associatiop at
800-LUNG-U.S.A. to donate
your vehicle and we will take
care of the rest. We tow your
vehicle for free.
You will receive detailed in-
structions and two simple forms
to fill out. Your donation is a
potential tax deduction. Avoid
the hassles of selling and possi-
bly pocket more in tax savings
than if you sold!
Your vehicle will be auc-
tioned and proceeds benefit the
American Lung Association for
Florida's fight against lung dis-
ease through research, patient
education, asthma summer
camp for children and school
programs in our community.
Doing something to help oth-
ers always feels good. And that
easy tax break is a-nice reward.

Fear Factor At Bell Elementary

School Best Ever


The third grade team spon-
sored the Fear Factor Hallway
for the BES Fall Festival on
Friday, October 28, 2005.
Mrs. Hunter, Mrs. Rolling,
Mrs. Hastings, Mrs. Murray,
and Mrs. J. Jones (all dressed as'
friendly witches), along with
Mrs. R. Douglas, N. Douglas
and many parent volunteers set
up a gruesomely awesome fun-
filled event. Mrs. Sandy
Panchyshyn painted murals for
the outside entrance into the
Fear Factor and also a glow-in-
the-dark one inside, adding an
absolutely "spooktacular"
touch!
Upon entering the hall, the
brave souls could hear the
screams, moans, and doors rat-
tling from outside! Once inside,
greeted by witch J. Jones offer-
ing "fresh pieces and parts" the
adults and children, (gloved
hands only) were supervised
while able to touch cow livers,
hearts and other yucky unknown
squishy things while. being
frightened and startled from be-
neath the tables with bangs and
boos by volunteer students
Talon Rolling, Cassidy Panchy-
shyn, and Baylee Rolling.


Upon exiting the fear factor
hall the visitors got to travel
through a dark corridor with un-
seen strings and things hung
from above to return to the out-
side. Everyone who was brave
enough to venture inside had an
awesome "Fear Factor Axperi-

Bell Christmas
Parade Set For
December 3, 2005
The date of Saturday, De-
cember 3, 2005, has been set for
the 25th Annual Bell Christmas
Parade and Street Side Arts and
Crafts Sale. The Parade will
line up at 1:00 p.m. and then
depart from the Chamber of
Commerce Park at 2:00 p.m.
This year's parade will fea-
ture entries in the following
categories: family/individual,
school group/civic organization,
business, and church. Each of
the categories will be awarded a
trophy for best decorated. An-
other category for this year will
be our Emergency Vehicle
Category featuring our "travel-
ing trophy." The traveling tro-
phy travels from one group to
another each year with their
team's name engraved on the
plaque and the trophy put on
display for a year in one of the
local restaurants. The trophy is
a whopping three feet tall and
you can't miss it!
Other categories this year will
be Best Decorated Bike, Best
Decorated Horse and Best
Decorated Golf Cart. Did you
guess what the theme is? "Sil-
ver Bells, It's Christmas Time
in the City of Bell." Celebrate
our 25th anniversary by joining
in on the fun. There will be an-
tique cars, beauty pageant con-
testants, fire engines, police
cars, bands, walkers, horses and
floats, floats and hopefully more
floats!
While you wait for the pa-
rade, browse the Arts and Crafts
located behind the 01' Train
Depot. There will be crafts for
everyone so come and do some
Christmas shopping while you
listen to live entertainment.
You'll want to take a minute or
two to visit with Santa as he'll
be inside of the ol' depot station
(Bell City Hall). Be sure to be
there in plenty of time 'cause
he'll have to go to the parade by
line up time.
Now here's the schedule so
you can keep up with every-
thing:
Arts & Crafts, 8:00 a.m. to
parade time; Live Entertainment
from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.;
Visit with Santa from 11:00
a.m. to 1:30 p.m.; Parade Line.
Up, 1:00 p.m.; Parad', 2:.00
p.m. Trophies will be awarded
immediately following the pa-
rade at city hall.
If you are interested in be-
coming a vendor at the Street
Side Arts and Crafts Sale,
booths are free of charge. Pa-
rade entries are also at no cost.
Please call for an application.
Thank You,

Teacher Cadets Visit
S Pre-School Classes
The Teacher Cadets have
been studying the social, emo-
tional and cognitive develop-
ment of pre-school age children.
One of their assignments was to
focus on how play contributes
to meaningful learning experi-
ences. They visited Mrs. Rood
and Mrs. Cassidy's pre-school
classes at Trenton Elementary
School and observed students
involved in 'many types of
meaningful play.
n They also designed. a pre-
school as part of this unit of
study. They made an adver-
tisement for their school as ei-
ther a commercial or a flyer.
They were required to design a
brochure describing all of the
aspects of their school. The, last
part of the assignment was to
build a model of their school,
including the classroom, health
room, parent pick up/drop off,
and playground facilities. They
all did excellent jobs!

Trenton Middle/High
School Celebrates
National Education
Week
The theme for National Edu-
cation Week this year is, "A
Strong America Starts With
Great Public Schools." This
theme represents the vision of
calling upon all Americans to
do their part in making public.
schools great for every child so
that they can grow and achieve
in the 21st century. National
Education Week focuses on
bringing together teachers,
school staff, parents, students,
and community, in a unified ef-
fort to make our schools even
stronger.
Take the opportunity this
week to acknowledge and thank
those individuals who are mak-
ing a difference in ensuring that
every child receives a quality
education. Don't forget to
thank your child's teachers and
para-professionals who work
tirelessly to teach. Don't forget
to thank your child's bus driver
for transporting your child to
and from school safely. Don't
forget the staff of workers who
keep our facilities clean and
healthy, the food service work-
ers who provide breakfast and
lunch, our office staff who get
messages to your children, and
share information about school
activities. And don't forget to
acknowledge and thank the par-
ents who support the educa-
tional efforts of the teachers.
Gilchrist County has a very
strong school system in which
we are all very proud to be a
part. We are one of the very
few school districts in the State
of Florida that achieves an "A"
school grade year after year.
This success' is due in partf'tb the
vision and foresight four dis-
trict personnel and administra-
tive staff and the hard work and
:cooperation of. our outstanding
school personnel, parents, and
community. Let's all focus on
our successes this week and in
the coming weeks and months
of school, and don't forget to
show your gratitude to everyone
associated with our great school
system.


Worry is like a rocking chair.
You may feel like you're doing
something, but it won't get you
anywhere.

Lady Tigers Visit
Lady Gators
By Christie McElroy
On Friday, November 11, the
Trenton Middle School Volley-
ball team went to the O'Connell
Center to watch the Gators play
volleyball against Ole Miss.
The girls watched as the Gators
annihilated Ole Miss. They
were impressed by the spikes,
kills, and digs made by the Lady
Gators.
The team played well and
following the game, the students
were allowed to meet the play-

ers,. get autographs, and pictures
with the players and coaches.
Coach Mary Wise took time to
speak with the girls and have a'
team picture taken with our
middle school team.
The Lady Gators were a huge
encouragement to the middle
school students. They wel-
comed them to the game and
encouraged them to work hard
in school and volleyball, and
they too, could achieve their
future goals.
The Trenton Middle School
Volleyball team had a great sea-
son, losing only one game all


season with a record of 11-1.
This outstanding group of girls
played and worked well to-
gether on and off the court. We
are proud of their accomplish-
ments and attitudes throughout
the season. Of course, it could
not have been accomplished
without the great coaching by
Belinda Foley and Salley Mar-
tin. These coaches should be
commended for the time and ef-
fort put forth. Great job Lady
Tigers! We look forward to an
even better year next year.

One Family Hit By More Than

Just Katrina


Christian is a beautiful, loving and strong young lady
who is having to deal with some of life's worst at too
early an age. To help her and her family with the many
financial needs associated with her cancer treatment
please mail to: Christian Willis, C/O Amy Willis, 3339
NW 93rd Lane, Branford, FL 32008.


One Family
By Anna Wild
When I first heard about this
family all I could think was
what the parents have had to
endure and try to explain to
their children. You see Gil-
christ County has a few indi-
viduals who now live here but
not too long ago they were dis-
placed due to Hurricane Katrina.
The family of Amy Willis is
now residing on the property of
her parents, Neil and Roberta
Murray, of North Bell. This is a
temporary situation for the fam-
ily as father and husband Willie


financial obligations are a large
concern. Christian is doing her
job and staying strong, mom is
doing her job and supporting
her daughter and sons, and dad
is doing his job and working to
give his family a home they can
come back to. Now I'm asking
our community to do what it can
to help this deserving family fi-
nancially or in any way; so feel
free to send your help to: Chris-
tian Willis, C/O Amy Wills,
3339 NW 93rd Lane, Branford,
FL 32008. I know we have all
been asked to give for so many
but I hope if you have the means
you will do what you can for
this little girl, and hopefully the
next time you see her in the
newspaper it will be a medical
success story.


Weekly Sheriff's
Report

Correction
The Gilchrist County'Journal
apologizes for.,:anqe,rror which
appeared in the November 10,
2005 Sheriff's Report. We are
sorry that we reported the facts
incorrectly. The report should
have read:
On November 3, 2005, Sarah
L. Evans, D.O.B. 9/11/66, was
arrested on the charge of felony
battery.
SOn November 3,2005, Jerode
B. Strong, D.O.B..1/6/84, was
arrested on possession of hydro-
codone bitartrate.
Also, the Sheriff's Report was
unavailable for publication this
week. It will be inserted in next
week's issue.


Willis has stayed behind in their
home town of Gulfport, Missis-
sippi, to make repairs and help
the community clean up so resi-
dents can come home. In the
case of the Willis', their home
'will need to be rebuilt. They
suffered mostly roof damage;
however, the water damage and
mold that has started to grow
since, the hurricane is the pri-
mary enemy of many residents.
The mold is very difficult to
remove and if it remains it poses
serious health risks. These con-
dition have been suffered by
thousands of people and this is

just one of those families.
But a month before Hurricane
*Katrina rolled into town this
family was already starting on a
journey that would change their
lives forever. At the end of July
Amy Willis's daughter started
*having a."personal" problem.
Her abdomen swelled as if she
was six months pregnant; they
had no warning, no previous ill-
nesses, and no pains, just all of
a sudden her daughter had a
very sudden reaction to some-
thing. Christian is the Willis'
only daughter of three children;
she has a twin brother, Mitch
and a younger brother, Dylan.
Christian's first stop in her
journey was her mother's nurse
practitioner who did an ultra-
sound and found a large mass in
her abdomen and referred the
family to a urologist in
Gulfport. That urologist did a
CAT scan and immediately re-
Iferred the family, to a urologist
at the Children'. Hospital in
Ne%\ Orleans. When the'Chil-
dren's Hospital performed a

Their "Family Bond" is strong. Neil and Roberta Murray (left) opened their home to
their daughter, Amy Willis and her children Mitch, Dylan and Christian when it
became clear Hurricane Katrina was coming onshore near their home.


S CAT scan they admitted her
into the hospital and she had a
biopsy performed on August 4,
2005. On August 9 their family
got the results of the test. Their
daughter had a tumor called
Wilms' Tumor which is a can-,
cer of the kidney and is very dif-
,. ferent from adult kidney cancer.
In most cases only one kidney
has the disease, but in some
cases both kidneys are affected.
Most individuals found to have
Wilms' Cancer are diagnosed
by the age of five. In Chris-
tian's case, she is 15 years old
and has been diagnosed with it.
The doctors were even a little in
S denial because the number of
cases occurring in teens and
young adults is so rare.
Before life changed, Amy
(mom), worked in Gulfport at
the Treasure Bay Casino. Most
of us saw the casino on the
Weather Channel. It was the
big ship right on the water and
now it looks more like a ship
wreck and was ,moved quite

previous employers who do plan
to rebuild. Willie, (dad), owns a
machine shop and does fabrica-
tion in Gulfport. He has stayed
behind to assist in the process of
cleaning and rebuilding. Mr.
Willis also stayed behind so he
could start the rebuilding proc-
ess on.his own property as soon
as possible. The family stays in
contact with him and he wishes
he could spend more time with
his family and his daughter.
Christian had already made
some friends in Bell before her
surgery. The doctors recom-
mended she be home-schooled
because of the amount of time
she would be missing classes so
Ms. Dana Jones at Bell High
School became her home school
teacher. Through Ms. Jones
Christian has been.able to have
some fun before she had to go
into the hospital. Ms. Jones
took Christian and some friends
to have a manicure and pedicure
the Thursday before the Gators
played Mississippi., Then, the
day of the game, a bunch of
them went to the Gator game
and cheered on the local team.
: Chi'gtian went in for surgery ,
to remove one kidney October
10, 2005. When I spoke to the
family the week before surgery,
the plan was to remove the
compromised kidney and tumor
and biopsy her lungs and liver
(spots had been found on these
locations in August before she
had her first chemotherapy
treatment). On the day of sur-,
gery what was expected to be a
four-hour surgery turned out to
be eight hours in surgery. They
removed the tumor and affected
kidney, part of her intestine
which had to be removed be-
cause the tumor had attached it-
self to it as well, and they took
biopsies of the pelvic area due
to spots in the region. Her liver
and lungs showed none of the
spots that were earlier found and
the doctors believe that her pre-
vious chemo treatment had
taken care of those areas. The
doctors are 'now watching to
make sure the pancreas and,
spleen do not get infected be-
cause the tumor had been at-
tached to them as well as the
intestine.
Christian will have additional
chemotherapy and .radiation
treatments as some cancer cells
were left behind. Amy Willis
stayed by her daughter's side as
much as she could while her
daughter was hospitalized.
Christian came home Sunday,
October 23, and is anxious to
get back to her school studies to
get ready for the holidays.
Christian's mother credits not
loosing her mind yet to the sup-
port her parents have given her.
In my eyes Amy truly is a
strong woman; she has the abil-
ity to deal with not only the loss
of a home and the support of a
community that had known her
.very well, but she is raising
Three children with a father
many miles away. For the
military and service families
who read this, I know you have
also endured the same type of
stressful situation, but then add
on the serious nature of a health
issue that one of their children
must go through, well it takes
its toll.

The community of Gulfport
had felt the pain of the family
when they learned of Christian's.
situation in August. Their
community rose to the occasion
and planned -a benefit for them
on September 24, but Katrina
changed that also. I asked Mrs.
Willis what our community
could do to help her family.
She explained that right now the

Log Cabin Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, November 10, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
As everyone was busy, we had
a guest come .in with two
beautiful quilts to show us.
One had been completed but
on one he needed help with the
hem. The work was very pro-
fessional and the points on the
Pin Wheel were just right and
we will show it at the quilt
show. Mr. David Williams,
who lives in Alachua, has been
making quilts and when he
does he sure takes time and
pride in his work. Thank you
David for sharing your talents.
Our annual fish fry is Thurs-
day, November 17, and we in-
vite all our friends, neighbors,
husbands, boy friends, and
whoever. This is our way to
say thank you for helping us to
have the museum. We are
debt free thanks to the many
who have helped us since
1988, so'come out and enjoy a
fun day and great food. Jarrod
and Greg will fry our fish and
we will have cheese grits, hash
puppies, slaw. and all the other
great foods. Hope to see you
there and, thank .you for all
your help.
Greg and six boys were out
on Tuesday. They fixed a
door, covered our kitchen table
with tile, mowed and cleaned
outside. We are always grate-
ful for their help. Thanks
again Lancaster.
Lunch was great with all
kinds of sandwiches, potato
salad, slaw, mac and cheese
(three kinds), fruit salad, cran-.
berry cake, apple pie, pecan
cake, and so much more. We
had 20 present.

resent Alachua County in the

participant in Special Olympics
for over 30 years.
On November 12, 2005, San-
dra turned 50 years old. Her
celebration began at a group
home party with 20 of her
friends and was also attended by
her parents Norm and Nancy
and close friends Marge and
Glenn Wood, all of Gilchrist
County. On Saturday morning
she attended the pancake break-.
fast at the Trenton Community

friends and family in Bell and

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.
