It wasn't the delays! It
wasn't unorganized parade
committee members! It wasn't
even mix-ups in the parade line
up. The 25th Annual Bell
Christmas Parade was truly over
an hour long because of all the
participation! There were sev-
eral categories to choose from to
place your parade entry such as
business, church, family, civic,
bike, horse, and a new category
this year was golf cart as well as
the traveling trophy category-
Gilchrist County's Emergency
Vehicles. The judges had their
hands full this year.
Each year, the parade com-
mittee chooses a theme for the
parade to use the following
year. The announcement was
made at the end of the parade
last year that 2005 would
probably hold one of the most
important themes. 2005 marks
the 25th year of this spectacular
event. It was only right to
choose "Silver Bells" as the
theme for 2005. As soon as the
Christmas sales started, people
were purchasing blue and silver
for the next parade.
On the streets of Bell
throughout the year friends dis-
cussed the parade and its theme,
tossed around their ideas on
float designs and participant
costumes, but never really

SHistoric Gym Begins The Move To The

ElementLry School Campus


The process of moving the
historic Trenton High School
gym began with the 1.5-mile
trip to the Trenton Elementary
School campus on Friday,
December 2, 2005. The
building was built in the 1930s
by the Works Progress
Administration (WPA). At that
time this was one of the few
indoor gymnasiums in the area.
The preparation to begin the
moving of this historic structure
began several weeks ago as
LaRue House Movers & Sons
Inc. began working to lift the
estimated 200 ton structure
from the brick and concrete
pillars.
The entire wood structure is
actually 116 feet long and 72
feet wide. The track that this
oversized, structure will be
traveling is through the fields of
Piedmont Farms before crossing
CR 307A onto the school
grounds. The proposed route
will take the building through a
former hayfield and into the
north side of the. elementary

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Saturday night the
Parrish and Ayers families were
blessed to have a lot of family
and friends attend the wedding
of our children Lyndsay and J.
at Ebenezer Baptist Church.
Bro. Billy Philman performed
the ceremony at Ebenezer
Baptist where the couple
attends.
Our son J. had talked with
me about Bro. Billy and how he
and Lyndsay both liked him and
even though he was no longer
their pastor, he had agreed to
perform the ceremony to bring
the couple together in marriage.
J. and Brother Billy have a good
understanding and have built a
relationship based upon putting
trust in God's word and seeking
Sthe Lord's guidance as he enters;
his next step in life.
SFrom a parent's perspecti e,
I could not be any prouder of
our son and now our daughter-
in-law. J. and Lyndsay have
spent many hours together
enjoying one another's
company : They have
experienced some good times
ad, ha'e made it through some
ttihes of disappoitrm"ent aq'well.
W\ an a family \ ill continue to
experience the good times
together and rejoice in them.
We will also become closer
when \we experience the times
of hardship and disappointment.
I want to publicly thank Bro.
Billy Phlman for doing \what he


has for these young people and
performing the ceremony.
When a young person decides
that they are ready to begin the
next step in their life, a
relationship with his pastor is
where that individual places
their trust in answering many
questions that they have. This is
a very important step in a young
person's walk with God.
I also.want to thank the
Southern Sisters and their
families for working with
Audrey and Cindy Jo to create
such a beautiful wedding and
reception. The food was as good
as everyone imagined it would
be. Thanks to 'Jerry Quincy who
.cooked the tasty tenderloins and
ribs. The evening was a true
blessing and a very joyous
occasion.

What pity is it that we can
die, but once to serve our coun-
try.

By Cindy Jo Ayers
As many of you know our
son, J., and his sweetheart
Lyndsay Parrish, were married
last Saturday night. The cere-
mony took place at Ebenezer
Baptist Church. Lyndsay's fam-
ily has attended church there for
generations. I love the winding
road leading up to the church
which is located on the backside
of a field away from the main
highway.
I thought the wedding was
beautiful and Bro. Billy Phil-
man made the wedding cere-
mony very personal and special
for both our families. Bro. Billy-
has played a very special role in
the lives of both J. and Lyndsay
as he was their pastor at
Ebenezer until just recently.
The dresses, music and
weather were just beautiful and
most everything went off with-
out a hitch except for a few
stubborn candles.
Friends and family came from
far and near to see the couple
unite. J.'s longtime friend,
Rusty Jones, came from Mar-
shall, Missouri, where he at-
tends college, to stand at his
side for the big event. You
know we just couldn't have had
a wedding without Rusty. As
children Rusty and J. were in-
separable. Someone told me that
while waiting for the wedding
to begin on Saturday afternoon
Rusty pulled out a rope and be-
gan roping :out behind the
church. I had to laugh when I
heard that. because as little boys
J. and'Rusty spent many hours
roping a beat up plastic cow
head which was stuck in a bale
of hay. Once they became tired
of roping that cow they would
begin roping each other. I still
clearly remember seeing Rusty
chasing J. across the yard and
Rusty roping J. by the foot. I
can still hear their little boy gig-
gles as they tumbled to the
ground. Oh well, that was a long
time ago and Donna and I now
have grow n sons.
of" omen 'ho heslpf ouiT dur-
'Ih h 'the0 \" adding. 'buti'ig tlhe
week leading up to the wedding
I received numerous phone calls
from one or the other of these
\women with words of encour-
agement. Many asked. "How


are you doing? Are you holding
S up OK? What can we do to
help?" Most of our conversa-
0 1 tions ended with the promise to
pray for me. I can't begin to tell
you how much it meant to me as
I raced around trying to do more
Than is humanly possible.
-- The group was loosely
f- ormed several years ago at the
-wedding of Laura Weaver
Brown. We all realized that we
-- had enjoyed the long hours
spent cooking and decorating
-- together for Laura. A week after
the wedding we went out to eat
S together to celebrate pulling off
such a (If I must say so myself)
S beautiful event. Through that
wedding we all bonded and de-
cided there was not too .much
we couldn't pull off, thus the
S"Southern Sisters" were formed.
Here's the.deal. We did a
head count and realized that
there were 22 children among us
that would someday need mar-
II T, tryingg off. You see we all love

our children very much and we
realize how important forming.
new families are. So catering for
these young couples is our way
of sending them out into their
new lives as a married couple
with our love and blessings. So
far we have come together to
assist with 10 or so weddings.
A simple thank you seems a
little inadequate to express my
appreciation to the Southern
Sisters for all they did for J. and
Lyndsay's wedding. Four of the
girls took Friday off from work
to begin the prep Work on the
food. About 4:00 p.m. the rest
of the group began arriving and
strapping on their aprons. In no
time at all you could hear the
happy hum of the Sisters'
voices coming from the kitchen.
Not only is a wedding a time to
come together and cook but it
gives us an opportunity to visit
and catch up on what's been
going on in our lives. This time
several of the Sisters had new
grandbabies to brag about and
pictures to share. A couple of
the girls are expecting their
children to announce weddings
in. the near future. You see a
year or more may go by without
.the group cooking for a wed-
ding but once we reunite it's: s-.
though we do i; week l.d-
say will be happy to ,i6 th
several of the sisteyhad advi ze
for me on howo be a g od
mother-in-l, 1 tt all th e ad-
c, ~r k this,
'C ',our mouth
shui, of ue ithir busi-
ness." f
Anyv nSouthern Sisters
came 1, ..bh once again saving
the da,- ,n more ways than I'll
eter kri.Tw. To begin with the,
Weaver Family came through
by providing the meal for the
rehearsal dinner. One Sister
picked up rolls for me in
Gainesville and made the
punch; several went to the store
for forgotten items; one brought
a tablecloth I had forgotten.
They a napkins, cooked and served the
food. Then at the end of tei
night, when the sisters were so
tired they were dragging, they
cleaned up the fellowship hall
and. washed a boat load of
dishes. The burden was lifted by
a couple of Southern Brothers
who jumped in at the last min-
ute to help their wives pull off
our big event.
This wedding marked a new
beginning for the Sisters as we
added a couple of Little Sisters.
Laura Weaver Brown and her
sister-in-law Devin Beach
Weaver have joined our group.
We always have a story at the
end of each wedding, which will
be brought up at a later event
and laughed at once again. This


very special group makes
memories on top of memories
as they lend a hand to see an-
other of our beloved children
married. The story that will be
retold about this wedding was a
little incident caused by one last
glass of sweet tea.
The story as I see it will go
something like this. I was a little
nervous since it was my son's
wedding and was keeping busy
messing with the flowers until
the last possible minute. Finally,
after much urging from the Sis-
ters, I went to dress in my wed-
ding finery. I soon returned to
the kitchen to get one last glass
of sweet tea just to steady my
nerves before the ceremony. I
was standing in front of the big
yellow Igloo when disaster
struck. I looked down at my
skirt and noticed that it was
soaked with sweet tea. I re-
member thinking "OH NO, that
sweet tea has ruined my wed-
ding finery. What in the world
am I going to do?" I should
have known not to panic, those
Sisters swept me away to the
bathroom where a chair magi-
cally appeared. I was told to sit
down and keep quiet. The next
thing I knew two Sisters were
holding my skirt out while a
third scrubbed it with a wet
towel. A fourth had found a
blow drier from who knows
where and began blowing my
skirt dry. Before I.could hardly
blink they had my shiny wed-
ding finery all sparkling again.
Then those. \eet Sisters band,
rme froihiiWe lnir errf'or'the rest
of the night:i; ..
I've heard of many groups
from all over the South where
bonds are formed such as the
,Sweet Potato Queens and the
YaYa Sisters, but I truly think
the Southern Sisters cannot be
beat.
I thank the good Lord for my
new daughter-in-law, my loving
family and those Southern Sis-
ters who mean so much to me.
Incase you are wondering the
wedding menu included Bacon
Wrapped Pork Tenderloins,
Southern Sisters' Chicken Over
Seasoned Rice, Fresh String
Beans, Sweet Potato Casserole,
Cranberry Congealed Salad,
Ambrosia, Devilled Eggs, Rolls,
Sweet Tea and Coffee. And of


course wedding and groom's
cakes.
After the wedding I've had
several people ask me for the
recipe for the Southern Sisters'
Chicken over Seasoned Rice
recipe so hereit is. This recipe
is the blending of several reci-
pes that I've collected through
the years. I've changed each
recipe quite a bit more or less
making it my own.

Southern Sisters' icken

Over Seasoned Rice
Prepare the rice first:
1/2 stick of butter
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 1/2 cups Uncle Ben's Rice@
3 cups chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
.1/2 teaspoon season salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Saut6 onions and celery in
butter until tender. Add rice and
cook until golden brown over
medium heat. Stir rice con-
stantly or it will burn. Pour
mixture in casserole dish and
add fresh chicken broth.
Cover tightly with foil and
bake for 1 hour at 350. I check
my rice several times while
cooking and sometimes I add
extra broth. You.may also have
to bake it for an extra 15 min-
utes or so. Also if broth is salty
you may want to cut back on the
amount of salt this recipe calls
for.
Topping:
-,. 1 whole chiken,..coted and '-t"
deboned
1 can of'crea'm of r Hishroom r"
soup
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 8-ounce carton of sour cream
1 sleeve of Ritz@ crackers,
crushed
1 stick of butter, melted
Stir together soups over me-
dium heat, when hot add sour
cream and chicken, mix well
and pour over cooked rice. Mix
butter and crackers and sprinkle
over top. Bake at 350 for 20 to
25 minutes.
Note: Each time I begin this
recipe I boil my chicken first
and then use the broth in the
rice. Also I add one chicken
bullion cube to the chicken
when I'm boiling it for a richer
broth.


I Want To Go To Heaven
(Kent Heaton)


Anyone of any spiritual consciousness realizes the
joy of living for an eternal home: Heaven is a central
theme for those who seek to live with the Father after
this life. Paul wrote in Philippians 3:20, "For our
citizenship is in heaven; whence also we wait for a
Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ:" Our commonwealth
and our conversation is resting on the hope of a place
where "death shall be no more; neither shall there be
mourning, nor crying, nor pain, any more" for God
"shall wipe away every tear from their eyes"
(Revelation 21:4).
I want to go to Heaven to enjoy a life without pain
and sorrow. Through the agency of rebellion (Genesis
3), man has suffered the pains of sin. The glory of a
heavenly home is to enjoy the communion of
fellowship lost in the Garden of Eden. Man was driven
from the garden because of sin but is allowed to return
to the garden of Heaven through the sacrifice of the
Lamb (Revelation 4). The author of sin and damnation
will have been cast into the "lake of fire and
brimstone" (Revelation 20:10) and those saved in the
glory of God will no longer battle evil as the final
victory is given in Jesus Christ (Revelation 19; 1
Corinthians.15:50-57).
I want to go to Heaven to end the struggles of
pilgrimage. The Hebrew writer describes life for
children of God as those who confessed that, they were
"strangers and pilgrims on the earth. For those who
say such things declare plainly that they seek a
homeland" (Hebrews 11:13,14). Living in a foreign
country is very difficult. The language is hard to
understand, the customs are not as we learned from our
childhood, the sights and sounds of the foreign land are
strange to us. There is a strong desire to return home
where there is comfort, security and our family.
In this life spiritually, it is very difficult to live in a
world foreign to the ways of God. The "language of


Ashdod" (Nehemiah 13:24) is hard to live with as the
wickedness of man is great in the earth, and that every
imagination of the thoughts of his heart is only evil
continually (Genesis 6:5). The customs of the world are
in accordance with the "the lust of the flesh and the
lust of the eyes and the pride of life" and the custom
of the.world "is not of the Father" (1 John 2:15-16). I
want to go to Heaven to be with my family (Ephesians
3:14,15) and enjoy the company of saints and angels,
I want to go to Heaven to see God. The scriptures
teach that no man has seen God save the Son (John
6:46). We have not seen the Son face to face as He is
now enthroned on high at the right hand of God (1
Peter 3:22). When we are ushered into the hallowed
halls of our eternal home, the face of God, the face of
Christ and the face of the Holy Spirit will be greeting
us with words of welcome. "There shall no more be
anything accursed, but the throne of God and of the
Lamb shall be in it, and his servants shall worship
him; they shall see his face, and his name shall be on
their foreheads" (Revelation 22:3-4).
The more one reads the words of God the more desire
they have to see His face. We learn of His character,
His love, His compassion, His mercy and grace
through the testimony of the revealed word but to see
Him face to face is to behold all His glory. The greatest
reward in Heaven is to be able to stand face to face
with Him who loved me to give me His Son (1 John
4:10); to see the one "who made Himself of no
reputation" becoming man to die for me on the cross
(Philippians 5:5-11); to witness the Spirit who led me
and guided me in my life (Romans 8:14-17); to stand
before the "glace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the
love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit" (2
Corinthians 13:14).
Are you going to Heaven? (Matthew 7:21-23;
Matthew 28:18-20; Acts 2:37-40)

Request For
Additional Officers
To: Jered Ottenwess,
City Manager
Dear, Jered Ottenwess, City
Manager,
At this time I would like to
request funding for four more
full-time officers absorbing the
59 hours a week presently being
worked by the two part-time of-
ficers. I understand the issues
with the budget. But I truly be-
lieve that the public's safety has
to be our number one priority.
As you are aware, the crime in
the city has skyrocketed and is
due directly to being so short
staffed. The Trenton Police
Department is not even a full
service police department,
meaning we do not have 24-
hour coverage.
I would like to point out that
per the FBI Crime Statistics
from 2004 just out, in cities
with the population under
10,000 people in the South, the
number of officers per 1;000
people is 3.3 and nationally it is
2.6. We are running at "1.875"
which is way below either of the
averages.
By funding these extra posi-
tions I will be able to have 24-
hour a day coverage, two offi-
cers on duty at the peak call
times, and it will give me some
more time to dedicate to inves-
tigating new and old crimes. In
time it will bring back the pub-
lic's sense of safety and secu-


rity. It will also bring back the
confidence in our police de-
partment.
By not funding these posi-
tions I believe you will see vio-
lent crime increase. Thefts,
burglaries, and ultimately, if we
are not granted the extra per-
sonnel that I'm requesting,
someone could lose their life,
either a citizen or officers.
Respectfully yours,
Billy Smith,
Chief of Police

Remember Our
Troops
As residents of Gilchrist
County we are known for "Re-
membering Our Troops" in a
very positive and, unashamedly,
public way. With that we must
not forget that the remembering
entails prayer for them as well.
One of the most powerful
parts of the armor of:a soldier of
Christ is the weapon of prayer.
The list of names below are
those who are serving on active
duty in the militarN and who are
either from Gilchrist County or
have a relative who resides here.
So please keep them in daily
prayer as they actively defend
us from terrorism, for as we all
know, "freedom is not free."

80th Birthday


Shown from left are Sonya Todd, Cheryl Creek, Betty
Rusty Yelvington, and Michael Yelvington.


Yelvington's
80t Birthday
Mr. Jim Yelvington recently
celebrated his 80th birthday
with his children, grandchildren,
and great-grandchildren. His
best wishes go out to all the
folks in Gilchrist County.
Mr. and Mrs. Yelvington cur-
rently reside in the Florida pan-
handle in Blountstown. He was
the former county extension
agent here many years ago.


America was targeted for at-
tack because we are the bright-
est beacon for freedom and op-
portunity in the world, and no
one will keep that light from
shining.
-George W. Bush

Despite a marathon hurricane
season that threatened to dam-
age the U.S. cotton crop just
months ago, 2005 crop produc-
tion and yields are trying to
break last year's record, pushing
current cottonseed prices to
historical lows, experts say.
"A month ago we were un-
certain how the hurricanes that
tore through the southeastern
U.S. this fall would affect
yields," says Tom Wedegaert-
ner, director of cottonseed re-


next year to create a dry foun-
dation for the bags.
"When it comes to ensuring
quality and feed consistency,
you can't beat the bag," he adds.
Cottonseed is an excellent
and economical source of fiber,
protein and.energy. Typical ra-
tions include up to 15 percent
cottonseed on a dry matter ba-
sis.

cottonseed, including reports on

"We've definitely increased
efficiency in our dairy operation
by utilizing our 55-foot concrete BIS T

168 tol70 tons, allowing us a
better volume price discount,
while also reducing the amount
of on-farm deliveries from- once

Don Gaspar of Santa Fe Trail
Dairy, a 6,000-cow dairy in
Ulysses, Kan., says he is a
"huge fan" of bagging cotton-.
seed, a feedstuff he "wouldn't
do without" because of the fi-
ber. "Bagging is the best stor-
age method to ensure quality
and lack of shrinkage, unless
you own a commodity shed."
Last year, the operation
bagged 3,000 tons of the feed-
.stuff. This year, Gaspar says
they did not bag cottonseed due
to wet weather. "When it rains
in western Kansas, the ground
gets really muddy and getting to
the bags is problematic," he ex-
plains. They plan on putting in
asphalt later this year or early

The rules approved today by
the FWC allow qualified fish-
ermen affected by the 1995 net
limitation amendment, and
stone crab and shrimp fishermen
who harvest blue crabs as by-
catch in their fishing gear. to
obtain a non-transferable blue
crab limited entry endorsement.
This lets displaced net fisher-
men use up to 100 traps to har-
vest hard shell blue crabs, and
gives shrimpers and stone crab-
bers a daily bycatch allowance
of 200 pounds of blue crabs.
An incidental take endorse-
ment to allow harvest of a lim-
ited amount of blue crabs from
shrimp and stone crab fishing
gear also was approved by the
Commission, and the 2006
Legislature must approve a pro-
posed $25 fee for this endorse-
ment.
The new rules also allow blue
crab harvesters to obtain per-
mission from the FWC Division
of Law Enforcement to let an-
other person transport, deploy
or retrieve his/her traps on a
short-term basis under certain
conditions for reasons of hard-
ship. These rules will take ef-
fect next month.

Comrades, veterans, friends:
We had an exciting time at the Loomis Bros Circus. The
weather was brisk, but the entertainment was worth it. I brought
my two grandchildren, who were admitted FREE, so I figured the
cost for each of us came to about $2.75 each. For two hours
entertainment, what a bargain. We 'Thank' the FFA for the
availability of the area, Gilchrist County Sheriffs office and ifs
volunteers, the dignitaries that started each show making a grand
entrance on the elephant.
Post 91 and the auxiliary will have a booth at Fanning Springs
Festival of Lights. Look for us there.
Our Christmas dinner at the post will be on Thursday, December
15th, at 7 PM or earlier, The entr6e will be provided by the post.
Please bring a covered dish or even better, a delicious cake or pie,
We also request some non-perishable items for the food bank.
The motto of the American Legion is "FOR GOD AND
COUNTRY", and we request your support of the Public
Expression of Religion Act of 2005, H.R. 2679. Sponsored by
Rep. John Hostettler, the legislation would end the abuse by
amending the Civil Rights Attorney Fees Act of 1976, to withdraw
the authority of judges to award attorney fees to theACLU, or
anyone else, in lawsuits under the Establishment Clause.
The American Legion calls on congress to end the outrageous
exploitation of the Civil Rights Act by the ACLU in seeking and
receiving millions in judge-ordered, taxpayer-funded attorney fees
in Establishment Clause cases. It is the threat of such judge-
ordered fees that has terrorized local elected officials into
surrendering to the ACLU's demands.
As more Americans learn how the ACLU adds insult to injury by
collecting taxpayer dollars to fund its attack on our nation's moral
values, expect a groundswell of 'we the people' united to stop this
practice.
Contact your elected officials and ask them to give their
immediate attention and fullest influence to efforts to amend Title
42.
The ninth circuit Court of Appeals has recently ruled at the
request of the ACLU that the cross at the Mojave Desert Veterans
Memorial must be removed or destroyed. Its time to take action
folks before its to late.
Remember our troops, wherever they may be, this holiday
season. I know their prayer is to be home with loved ones, but
defending OUR freedoms comes first. Say a prayer for each and
every one of these heroes and God Bless All.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY
Dean Williams, Adjutant

Gainesville Sports Organizing
Committee (GSOC), the GAR
holds a series of 5000-meter

one oar each and a coxswain is
with the crew. Events are fur-
ther categorized by crew num-
bers and skill level.
Originally scheduled for Oc-

The Bell Purple Powerhouse

their fellow band members from

the two schools and they
sounded terrific.
This marching season has
been active. In September, the
band joined 3,000 other band

Alabama, and Georgia for FSU
Band Day in Tallahassee. Their
day included lunch and watch-
ing a pre-game performance by
the Marching Chiefs Band. Last
year's Band Captain, Samantha
Fowler, was named to the
Marching Chiefs Band this
summer, so the Bell Band hon-
ored her with an arch of honor
as she went to the field and con-
gratulations posters which were
signed by the band. The band
watched FSU beat the Citadel
and the final highlight of the
day was when the Bell Band
was shown on FSU's jumbo-
tron. Yes, we did see some
Gator chomps.
In October the band per-
formed at the "Kingdom of the
Sun" tournament at North Mar-
ion High School and came in
third in their division. They
also performed at Districts in
Lake City and received a Supe-
rior Rating.
During the month of Novem-

GREETINGS
Browsing through my collec-
tion of animal pictures I came
across this cute one which
makes me think of the child-


hood poem, "The Three Little'
Kittens." Aren't they adorable?
My "Molly" is still doing fine
and as soon as my film is devel-
oped I'll be featuring her once
again.


Never close your books on
your mind...

MISCELLANY
"Bloomers" got their name
from their creator, Amelia
Bloomer, of Seneca Falls, New
York, a very un-frivolous
woman (despite the connotation
of the word "bloomers" today)
who edited the temperance
journal The Lily. On July 19,
1848, she introduced her outfit
at a. women's rights convention
in Seneca Falls. It consisted of
a calf-length skirt, more tailored
than the current fashions de-
manded, and full trousers
reaching to the ankle. In winter,
the elasticized cuff could be
raised to the boot top. Mrs.
Bloomer pointed out that this
was a superior mode of dressing
because the garments wouldn't
.become soiled in the street, and
were durable, cheap, and re-
quired little care.

Busy people make mistakes,
but they never make the big
mistake of doing nothing...

RIB TICKLERS
A man walks out of a bar and
sees a bum panhandling on the
corner.
The bum says, "Mister, can
you spare a dollar?"
The man thinks a minute.
Then he asks the bum, "If I give
you a dollar, are you going to
use it to go buy liquor?"
"No," says the bum.
The man then asks, "If I give
you a dollar, are you going to
use it for gambling?"
Again the bum says, "No."
So the man says to the bum,
"Do you mind coming home
with me so I can show my wife
what happens to someone who
doesn't drink or gamble?"

Needing to shed a few
pounds, my husband and I went
on a diet that had specific reci-
pes for each meal of the day. I
followed the instructions
closely, dividing the finished
recipe in half for our individual
plates. We felt terrific and
thought the diet was wonderful
- we never felt hungry!
But when we realized we
were gaining weight, not losing
it, I checked the recipes again.
There, in fine print, was:
"Serves 6."


The toastmaster introduced
the speaker with great fervor,
stressing her years of faithful
service to the club and eulogiz-
ing her ability and charm.
Somewhat overwhelmed, the
speaker faced the audience.
"After such an introduction,"
she said disarmingly, "I can
hardly wait to hear what I'm
going to say."

A woman traveling through
the countryside stopped at a
small fruit stand and bought
some apples. When she com-
mented they were horribly
small, the farmer replied,
"Yup."
The woman took a bite of an
apple and exclaimed, "Not very
flavorful, either."
"That's right," said the
farmer. "Lucky they're small,
ain't it?"

Do you know what you get
when you play a country song
backward?
You get your job back, you
get your house back, your wife
back, your truck back...

The chains of habit are usu-
ally too small to be felt until
they are too strong to be bro-
ken...

THE COOK'S CORNER
No Bake Cookies
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine
1/2 cup milk
4 tbsp. cocoa
Boil above together for one
minute.
Add:
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups quick oatmeal
Drop on waxed paper and
cool.

Seven days without laughter
makes one weak...

HOUSEHOLD HINT
Gravy smooth as silk
Keep a jar with a mixture of
equal parts of flour and corn-
starch. Put 3 or 4 tablespoons
of this mixture in, another jar
and add some water. Shake,
and in a few minutes you will
have a smooth paste for gravy.

If you give a gift, never re-
member it... if you receive,
one, never forget it...

QUIET REFLECTIONS
As you drop to your knees to
pray today,
As you tell God of your hopes
and fears,
Remember each thought and
word you say
Is a whisper in God's ear.
Tell Him what concerns you,
Ask Him to calm your fears,
And if you look closely you can
see
God smiling through your tears.
'Thank Him for your many
blessings,
For the special closeness you
share!
Open your heart and receive His
love,
And know it's always there.
This time of prayer is special -
Sharing words only He can
hear.
Because each thought and word
you say
Is a whisper in God's.ear.

Ayers Residents Make Christmas

Treats


... .: -

Shown are Doris Pope, Seena Ruth, Rachel Griffin, Elizabeth Watson, and Vina
Hardee displaying some of the Christmas candy they made.


Ayers Residents
On November 28, the resi-
dents of Ayers Health and Re-
habilitation Center had an ex-
citing day decorating
gingerbread houses. What fun
they all had eating and putting
on gumdrops, M&M's, Life-
savers, red hots, and candy
canes on these cute gingerbread
houses. Jane Boyd, one of our
volunteers, helped to bake the
houses and spent the day with
the residents to help mix the
royal icing to construct them.
On December 1, Elizabeth
Watson, Seena Ruth, and Ra-
chel Griffin came in to make
chocolate covered peanut but-
terballs and butterscotch peanut
butterballs with the residents.
They all enjoyed making the
candy and of course, eating
them was really a yummy treat!
We would like to thank all of
our volunteers organizations for
making our residents' Christmas
an enjoyable one. We wish
each of you in our community a
wonderful holiday season.

UF Grant To
Benefit Memory
Loss Research In
Older Adults
Three UF scientists will re-
ceive $125,000 each for inno-
vative projects to fight memory
loss in older adults, MBI Ex-
ecutive Director Dennis Stein-
dler, Ph.D., has announced.
"This initiative called for in-
novative and high-payoff ideas
to solve age-related memory
loss," Steindler said. "We
wanted out-of-the-box, state-of-
the-art approaches, rooted in
cellular, genetic, molecular and
behavioral neuroscience."
Grant awardees aim to create
a brain-scanning method to test
drug treatments, to solve the
mysteries of how brain cells
age, and to develop neuropro-
tective drugs.
The projects further the mis-
sion of the late William L.
McKnight, who served 59 years
as chairman of 3M company,
and 'his wife Evelyn F.
McKnight, a former nurse who
was deeply interested in why
memory often fades as people
age. The Brain Institute was
named for the McKnights in
May 2000, after the McKnight
Brain Research Foundation
board of trustees gifted UF with
$15 million to support aggres-
sive research.
Awardees include David
Loring, Ph.D., a neurology pro-
fessor in the College of Medi-
cine; Leonid Moroz, Ph.D., an
associate professor of neurosci-
ence and zoology at UF's Whit-
ney Laboratory for Marine Bio-
science; and Hendrik Luesch,
Ph.D., an assistant professor and
medicinal chemist in the Col-
lege of Pharmacy.
Loring wants to test the ef-
fectiveness of memory-loss
therapies by applying a new
statistical technique to ,. staPn-
dard .brain-scanning, Aet'hdd
called', functional Magnetic
Resonance Imaging, known as
fMRI.
Traditional thought hblds that.
when older people lose the abil-
ity to bank new memories, it
may be because of deterioration
in the brain's temporal lobe.
But Loring believes it is pos-
sible that some older people
actually lack the attention span
to log new information into
their memory, which places the
problem in the prefrontal cortex
the brain's attention center -
not the temporal lobe.
He will %\ork with Kimford
Meador, M.D., a professor of
neurology and director of the
epilepsy and clinical Alz-
heimer's programs, and Frank
Bova, Ph.D., a physicist and-
professor of neurosurgery, to
use new FMRI techniques to lit-
erally "-watch' activity inside
the brains of human volunteers
as they respond to memory-
related tasks.
While Loring and colleagues
hope to pinpoint the regions of
the brain that contribute to suc-
cessful memory formation and
develop a technique to test the
effectiveness of drugs used to
fight memory loss, Moroz is at-
tempting to determine why
some brain cells age more
quickly than others.
Answers. may come from the
inconspicuous sea slug Aplysia
californica;
This ocean creature has the
largest neurons in the animal
kingdom, creating a simple
memory-forming network that
is easily studied.
Analyzing the biochemical
products that result when the
genes of Aplysia neurons ex-
press, themselves may reveal
markers for human memory
function and provide informa-
tion regarding a neuron's "life
span." Moroz wants to know
how neuron longevity affects
memory and why specific neu-
rons age at different rates.
"We have all the tools in our


I


related memory loss.
"We want to know, do differ-
ent neurons learn differently,
and if they do, do they age dif-
ferently? Put these puzzle pieces
together and you can put to-
gether new therapies," Moroz
said.
Meanwhile, Luesch, a me-
dicinal chemist, seeks to iden-
tify proteins that can be modu-
lated by drugs to activate
protective genes to prevent neu-
rological age-related disorders.
Collaborating with Alfred
Lewin, Ph.D., a professor of
molecular genetics and microbi-
ology with the UF College of
Medicine, and researchers at
Scripps Florida, Luesch will
screen genomewide libraries of
DNA to find genes that regulate
the synthesis of neuroprotective
enzymes proteins that cause or
speed up chemical reactions.
Initial screenings will be con-
ducted with researchers at
Scripps Florida, followed by
detailed studies at UF. The
award will allow Luesch to hire
a postdoctoral researcher and to
acquire instruments for more ef-
ficient analysis and gene vali-
dation.
"The McKnight Founddtion
grant will further the opportu-
nity for collaboration with
Scripps Florida and among col-
leges at the University of Flor-
ida," Luesch said.
"Strengthening research alli-
ances is an important aspect of
the McKnight grants," Steindler
said.
"The grants allow us to ad-
vance the science being done in
this institute through collabora-
tions with investigators around
the. world," Steindler said. "It's
inltacrt \%tork. As we age, our
meihory is at risk.
"If we can devise novel inter-
ventions pr, enhance memory
capabilities during the aging
process, all .f us will benefit."


FWC Adopts Airboat
Sound Reduction
Measures
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) approved enforcement
procedures and educational ef-
forts concerning airboat sound
reduction recently during its
meeting at Key Largo.
The Commissioners' action
clarified that flex pipe is not an
effective muffling device and
that mufflers are required on
airboats. Commissioners also
included a provision directing
FWC officers to promote com-
pliance through a six-month
educational period.
Commissioners also voted to
move forward with public out-
reach efforts to resolve concerns
about airboat sound levels. Out-
reach efforts will include an air-
boat-sound reduction competi-
tion next spring, in cooperation
with the industry, to develop in-
novative solutions for making
airboats quieter.
To get to this point, FWC.
staff conducted six workshops
to gather input from airboaters,
sound experts and residents to
address complaints about,sound
levels produced by airboat en-
gines and propellers. Work-
shops attracted 400 participants
who overwhelmingly agreed on
the need for an airboater code of
ethics and the need for effective
mufflers on airboat engines.


FWC Helps Gopher
Tortoise
Stakeholders Get
Organized
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) will assemble a diverse
group of stakeholders concerned
about gopher tortoise manage-
ment and conservation Friday in
Lecanto. Organizers hope par-
ticipants can identify common
interests, establish a framework
for a gopher tortoise stakeholder
group and build an effective
communications line between
this group and the FWC.
The 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
meeting is open to the public at
the Citrus County Government
Building, 3600 W. Sovereign
Path, Room 166.
FWC hopes participants will

represent the diversity of opin-
ions surrounding gopher tortoise
issues and will include partici-
pation from conservation orga-
nizations, developers, consult-
ants, county and state agencies,
landowners, land managers and
concerned individuals.
Once established, the gopher
tortoise stakeholder group will
discuss issues, evaluate scien-
tific information and could de-
velop proposals for regulations,
management activities and con-


servation policies. FWC will
provide the group technical
support, scientific information
and assist with facilitation of
meetings and group organiza-
tion.
Anyone requiring special ac-
commodations to participate
should notify the FWC at least
two days in advance by calling
Dr. Perran Ross at (352) 392-
7137. Hearing- or speech-
impaired persons can arrange
assistance by calling (850) 488-

National Traffic
Safety Poster Contest
To Award Over
$18,000
Students in grades K-12 are
invited to participate in the 62nd
annual AAA Traffic Safety
Poster Program national com-
petition. which %ill award 52
prizes totaling $18,40c0.
"The poster contest was cre-
ated to educate students on im-
portant traffic safety issues,"
said Sojeila Orengo, manager of
traffic safety programs for AAA
Auto Club South.
"But the ultimate goal is to
reduce traffic and pedestrian
crashes, the number one cause
of death for children ages two to
14."
Students are asked to design
posters that support the follow-
ing safety themes designated for.
their grade division:
Primary (Grades K-2): Night
Time Visibility (i.e., Be seen
after dark)
Elementary (Grades 3-5):
Helmet Safety (i.e., Helmet use
for bicycles, scooters, roller
blades)
Junior High (Grades 6-8):
Buckle Up (i.e., Safetybelt, the
belt you'll never outgrow)
Senior High (Grades 9-12):
Alcohol Awareness (i.e., One
drink can be too many)
The judging criteria for po t-
ers' will be based on the rela-
tionship of the entry design to
traffic safety practices, the
originality of how the idea is
expressed in the design, and the
visual and creative impact of the
5 design.
High school students also
S have the option of presenting a
poster or an audiovisual public
service announcement of 30
seconds'or less. The message
should caution drivers to avoid
the influence of alcohol and
drugs. Entries must be submit-
ted in DVD or CD format only.
The top entrant nationally in
each of the four grade-level di-

visions will win the Grand
Award: a $5,000 Visa Gift
Check for the Senior High win-
S ner and a $1,000 Visa Gift
Check each, for the three win-
.i ners from grades K-8.
S In the second category of
awards, Regional Awards, the
states are broken into four re-
gional groups. First, second,
and third-place prizes will be
awarded for each region with
$300, $200, and $150 Visa Gift
Checks respectively.

hands; the problem is combin-
ing the right people with the
right cells to answer the ques-
tion of what kind of genes con-
tribute to long-term memory

"Nobody really understands on
the level of specific cells how
many genes work together. We
are excited because this is the
first time we will be able to
monitor all genes in specific
neurons"
Results from Moroz's re-

Bronson Reminds
Consumers To Check
Out Charities Prior
To Donating
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson is urging
consumers to take the time to
investigate charitable organiza-
tions before making any dona-
tions. There were some charity
scams during recent hurricane
relief efforts and the holiday
season is one of the busiest for
charities, many collecting about
half their annual donations dur-
inkllthe Thianksgiviffgpr hristmas
and New' Year's Dayfioli'days.
"There are more than 10,000
charities and professional so-
licitors registered with the De-
partment and it's important that
consumers find out all they can
about an organization before
making any contributions,"
Bronson said. "They can find
out not only whether a charilt is
properly registered, but also
how it spend the donations."
As of November 1, there were
10,937 charities and profes-
'sional solicitors registered with
the Department. The Depart-
ment does not endorse 'any
charity and is prohibited from
dictating how much a charity
spends on program services, but
financial information enables
consumers to make educated
decisions about where to con-
tribute.
"People can take steps to
make sure a charity is properly
registered but they shouldn't
stop there," Bronson said.
"They can use the financial in-
formation we provide to deter-
mine whether they think a char-
ity is using donations in a
prudent manner."
Bronson also provided the
following tips to consider when.
deciding whether to donate to an
organization:
Don't judge an organization
based on .an impressive-
sounding name. Find out what
it actually does: Be wary of
emotional appeals and organi-

Which House is Right for You?
Looking at houses can be
confusing. Grouping several in a
day can make the process even
more mind boggling. It is
important for you to look at each
house carefully. My goal is that
once you read this article, you will
be better prepared when looking at
the next home for your family.
- Taking notes is a good way to
keep houses straight. Writing
down the features that you like,
and the ones you dislike is good
information. The Realtor that you
are working with should have a
copy of the MLS sheet available.
This is a perfect place for note
taking, as the important
information about that specific
house is included.
- Along with taking notes, bring
your digital camera. Looking at
the house through your eyes is the
most important view. Marketing
photos may not embellish the
features that you are interested in,
and not the Realtor's view.
- Also, write down the feelings you
get while in the home. A number
of Buyer's have expressed to me
that they knew as soon as they
walked in the home, that it felt like
home. Imagine if you were
already living there, picture your
belongings, and decorations in the
home.
- Include any cosmetic changes
that you would like done to the
home. Also do not forget the
outside of the home, imagine the
landscaping you like, and see how
your tastes would work with the
architecture of the home.
- When you sit down to go over all
your notes, the pictures and the
feelings will help bring back to life
the overall experience you had
while in the home. This should aid
you in narrowing dowp your
choices, and help you choose the
right home for-your family.

Town Celebrates 25
Years At Bell
Christmas Parade
(Continued from Page One)
about children all dressed in
formals shining with silver all
around the Christmas tree?
Were you there? Did you see
the Parade Marshal, Ms. Iris
Roberts beautifully dressed in
silver from head to toe riding on
a fantastic blue and silver float?
Santa even had his ride (the
bike) trimmed with silver bells.
Horses, bikes, golf carts, none
were exempt. Everybody had
silver in mind. The depot was
even decorated in blue and sil-
ver for all the Santa snapshots
taken. Words alone can not be-
gin to describe the beauty found
on the streets of Bell Saturday
but check out all the pictures
found in this paper and just
imagine silver on everything
you see. Congratulations to all
the winners, and just to pass on
a statement made after the pa-
rade, "They may not have all
walked home with a trophy, but
they were all winners! We've
never seen a parade so alive!"
Thanks to all who know the
importance of being a part of
such a great little town. If ever
you find yourself saying, "I
didn't win, what's the use?"
remember this, "Christmas is
for Kids" and kids of all ages
love parades! Now, go on out
and buy those things needed for
the next float in the parade;
you'll be right out there among
friends. In fact, grab a few
more friends. Get more people
involved, it's all in fun!
It was obvious that this event
was the 25th but did you know
it had the most entries ever?
Did you notice all the busi-
nesses that participated? It was
simply unreal. This year the pa-
rade committee also decided to
offer a huge six foot tall blue
and silver Christmas stocking.
Jerry Pope proudly loaded it up
and took it home after the
drawing. It was filled with
toys! The committee also de-
cided to offer prizes at Bell
Elementary School for the most
creative Christmas posters.
Those winners have been noti-
fied.
Did the committee stop there?
No! It was very important to
make this event the most memo-
'rale Tv..o oun, ladies were
asked to "alk in the parade and
hand out 2005 Bell Christmas
Parade Silver Bell Ornaments.


Did you get one? Was that it?
Did they stop there? No! The
parade committee then decided
to form another committee to
determine/choose one man and
one woman to represent the
Town of Bell. After reviewing
many applications sent in nomi-
nating many deserving people to
carry the title of "Mr. and Ms.
'Silver Bells' of Bell," Mr. and
Mrs. Ray Thomas were chosen
for this honor (You'll read more
about this next week). Now,
was that it? Isn't that enough?
This group, the parade commit-
tee, kept this town busy all year.
It just doesn't get any better
than that!
Actually, don't forget the
Street Side Crafts and food ven-
dors! There were plenty of
things to see and purchase.
Everybody enjoyed the Cookie
Walk sponsored by the Bell
P.T.A. The Safety Patrol had
great lemonade, and the nuts
and cheese offered at the Farm
Bureau booth were outstanding.
Even though Saturday morning
showed temperatures in the 30s,
the Town of Bell filled quickly
with people enjoying an abso-
lutely beautiful day walking
through the different booths and
singing along with entertain-
ment provided by the Philman
Family Band. Just before the pa-
rade, the Bell Elementary Cho-
rus joined together to wish eve-
ryone a Merry Christmas with
several holiday tunes directed
by chorus sponsors, Ms Sandy
Becker and Ms. Peggy Hilliard
(fourth grade teachers of Bell).
Children are such a blessing and
when seen together in a group
like this singing so proudly,
smiling as each breath is taken,
you can't help but get right
there with them, in the spirit of
Christmas. These kids drew a
large crowd, just like Santa does
when he comes to Bell.
The Raymond and Joanne
Jordan family commented sev-
eral times during the day on

this is the one that will win. But
wait. it gets caught in the cur-

Another takes the lead, but will
it be the one? You just have to
wait and see.
Of course everyone comes out

the dark. Also keep an eye on
your children to be sure they are


safe so we all can enjoy this

Historic Gym Begins
The Move To

school campus. The historic
elementary school gymnasium
will be located on the southwest
corner of the campus.
Larry LaRue explained that
the moving of the structure is
planned to be completed by
December 9. This moving
process has become quite
detailed as the proposed route
consists of different types of
terrain.
The moving of the historic
facility from where it was
originally constructed was done
with the use of steel mats that
have been placed in front of the
dual tire hydraulic wheel
assemblies. There are ten
different assemblies that are
placed under the structure to
sustain the weight during the
move. The actual move is done
by the use of cable winches that
are connected to the I-beams
under the gym. The movement
is extremely slow, but when you
consider the amount of weight
involved in the move, just
moving it is considered to be a
vast undertaking.
On Tuesday, December 6,
the wheel assemblies under the
gym were turned to begin
moving the structure to the

west. Plans are in place for the
structure to move through the
fields over the next several
days. Larry LaRue explained
that, due to the terrain in the
field, the use of running boards
under the tires would keep the
wheel assemblies from sinking
in to the soft dirt.
This gym moving project is
estimated to cost $113,000. A

Bell Celebrates 25
Years In Christmas
Parade
(Continued from Page Seventeen)
Saturday that it had certainly
been fun working with the
Town of Bell through the years
creating, a bigger and better pa-
rade each year. In fact it was
now time to step down from all
the joy in being right in the
middle of it all, to simply sit on
the sidelines to watch the pa-
rade. When you see Raymond
or Joanne on the street now,
please thank them for a job well
done. Oh but don't think they
left you in the dark. If you ha-
ven't heard yet, which is hard to
imagine cause people have al-
ready -been seen gathering
around discussing their ideas for
next year, the theme is "Camou-
flage Christmas!" That's right,
start stocking up on that "camo"
stuff now! We'll see you next
year in Bell on the first Saturday
of Decembei- for the forthcoin-
ing best parade ever,
"Camo Christmas In Bell!"
Merry Christmas to all, and to
all stay safe.


FWC Takes On
Illegal Oyster
Harvesters
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators recently ar-
rested three people selling oys-
ters they harvested from the red
tide-contaminated waters near
the Shired Island area in Dixie
County.
FWC officers charged Robert
Milton Forehand, 55, Cross
City, Anne Nightingale Fore-
hand, 50, and Billy Ray Fore-
hand, 54, both of Old Town,
November 23, on a variety of
charges including illegal harvest
and sale of oysters from a
closed area and failure to obtain.
required licenses to harvest or
sell saltwater products.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer,
Services designated all zones in
the Shired Island area closed to
oyster, clam and mussel harvest
since October 29 because of red
tide contamination along the
coast.
"The oysters harvested from a
closed area presented a signifi-
cant threat to public health,"
said Captain Martin Redmond,
FWC investigations supervisor
for the North Central Region.
"We needed to stop the harvest
and sale of these oysters."
FWC investigators and offi-
cers went undercover to the
Shired Island campground
where the three Forehands lived.
Officers established a relation-
ship with the trio and bought
118 oysters and 19 live blue
crabs from them. After docu-
menting the evidence, the offi-
cers returned the live products
to the water. Undercover offi-
cers also established that the de-
fendants had knowledge of
commercial fishing laws and
rules. One of the defendants
said he "was not worried about
getting caught because the F2WC
did not have time to mess with
him."
Officers charged Robert
Forehand with harvest of oys-
ters from a closed area; com-
mercial harvest/sale of oysters
with no Saltwater Products Li-
cense; commercial harvest from
a vessel not constructed to pro-


30 Years Service to the

tect products from
bilge/contaminants; shellfish
harvest vessel not equipped with
sewage disposal receptacle; and
driving a vehicle with a sus-
pended driver's license.
Charges against Billy Fore-
hand include harvest of oysters
from a closed area; commercial
-harvest/sale of oysters with no
Saltwater Products License; and
commercial harvest/sale of blue
crabs with no Restricted Species
Endorsement.
Officers charged Anne Fore-
hand with commercial har-
vest/sale of oysters with no
Saltwater Prdducts License and
commercial harvest/sale of blue
crabs with no Restricted Species
Endorsement.
In addition, officers seized as
evidence the suspects' 14-foot
Alumacraft johnboat with a
Mercury 9.9 outboard motor, an
oyster cull rack and a set of
oyster tongs.
Unlicensed harvest/sale of
saltwater products can range
from misdemeanor to felony
charges, depending on .the vio-
lator's history.
"FWC plain-clothes investi-
gators teamed up with FWC
patrol officers from the Crystal
River Field Office to address
this problem and make this
case," Redmond said.
To report any natural resource
violations, call the FWC's toll-
free Wildlife Alert hotline at
888-404-3922. Callers can re-
main anonymous and receive a
reward if the information leads
to an arrest.
According to the FWC's Fish
and Wildlife Research Institute,
if a shellfish harvest ban is in ef-
fect because of red tide, it is not
safe to eat mollusks (clams and
oysters) because toxins can ac-
cumulate in the meat of these
filter-feeding bivalves. It is okay
to eat fish, crabs and shrimp
during red tide, because the
toxin .is not absorbed in the edi-
ble tissues of these animals.
Scallops are okay to eat as long
as only the muscle of the animal
is consumed. Seafood purchased
in local restaurants and grocery
stores is safe to eat because all
commercial seafood must be
harvested from red tide-free
waters.
Cooking does not destroy the
red tide toxin.
Anyone who eats red tide-
contaminated shellfish can ex-
perience symptoms within a few
hours. Symptoms generally dis-
appear within a few days and
include tingling and numbness
of tongue, lips, throat; muscular
aches; gastrointestinal distress;
and dizziness, depending on the
amount of toxin ingested and
the overall health of the victim.
The Marine and Freshwater'
Toxins Hotline, (888) 232-8635,
is available for reporting harm-
ful effects. Callers are con-
nected to the Florida Poison In-
formation Center in Miami,
which operates 24 hours a day.
Health care professionals at the
center record the caller's infor-
mation and assist with health
and safety concerns. The Florida
Department of Health encour-
ages people who have experi-
enced harmful effects associated
with exposure to aquatic toxins
to call the hotline.


Use power to help people.
For we are given power not to
advance our own purposes nor
to make a great show in the
world, not a name. There is but
one just use of power and it is to
serve people.
-George H.W. Bush
