Mr. and Mrs. Silver Bells Are Honored

During Christmas Celebration In Bell


By Rayanne Ferguson
Did you believe it? What were
the committee members thinking
when they chose Mr. and Mrs.
Ray Thomas to represent Bell as
"Mr. and Ms. Silver Bells?" As
a member of the parade commit-
tee, I was given the Silver Bells
committee's final answer and all
the recorded information. I do
know for a fact that there were
many great folks of the commu-
nity nominated to carry this title.
To qualify, the individual had to
be a -resident of the community
for at least 25 years and show
proof (complete an application)
of community involvement and
write a statement of why they
felt this person was deserving
of such an honor. Applications
were submitted from friends and
family throughout the commu-
nity describing individuals liv-
ing all around us. People wrote
several comments describing
wonderful acts of kindness. We
are so blessed to live and be a
part of such a loving, caring,
and giving community. When
counting your blessing, always
remember your neighbor.
Written afiiong the following
lines, you'll read exactly what
the committee read about Mr.
and Mrs. Thomas as they re-
viewed all the applications.

tion for Mr. and Mrs. Ray E.
Thomas, Sr. to be considered for
Mr. & Ms. Silver Bells.
Rav E. Thomas was boin'and
raised in Gilchrist County. His
father delivered him on their
family farm back in the early
1930's. Ray grew up farming
with his large family learning
that the value of a hard day's


work was the key to being suc-
cessful. He was the sixth of nine
children. He attended Bell High
School and Mt. Nebo Baptist
Church. While in high school,
Ray was involved in FFA, bas-
ketball and baseball. Sometime
after graduating from Bell High
School, Uncle Sam came calling
and Ray was drafted to serve his


country. He served time in Fin-
land and Germany, but mainly
toured in the European area.
During this time, whenever he
was allotted leave, Ray would
come back home to Bell to visit
family and friends. It was dur-
ing this time that he met a young
lady, who was friends with his
younger sister, Joanna Van Dew.
"Joanna V. Dew was the
daughter of John H. and Ev-
elyn S. Dew. Mr. Dew served
as Principal of Bell High
School and Mrs. Dew taught
for many, many years. Joanna
was involved in many activities
before graduating from Bell
High School. She was active
in athletics, student govern-
ment, FHA and was elected as
Homecoming Queen her senior
year. Upon graduation, Joanna
attended Emory University and
obtained her Bachelor's Degree
in Nursing.
"After returning from college,
Joanna and Ray's relationship
became a bit more serious and
they were then married in 1960.

Fanning Springs Celebrates Christmas With

Festival Of Lights Program Saturday


Gilchrist Jail Is Evacuated To

Determine Cause Of Smoke

Thursday Evening


At approximately 6:15 p.m.,
December 8, the Gilchrist
County Correctional Deputies
smelled smoke in the jail. It was
immediately determined that the
smoke was coming from the heat
and air-conditioning system.
The system was shut down and
all personnel and inmates were
moved to a secure location.


Trenton and Fanning Springs
fire departments were dispatched
to the jail. Gilchrist County
deputies and the Trenton Police
Department were also called in
to assist with security. The fire
departments determined that the
smoke was coming from a short
in the heat and air-conditioning
system beside the ductwork.


No smoke was found in the
main cell area. The booking
area was filled with smoke but it
was blown out by the fire depart-
ments and the area was cleared.
At 8:20 p.m., the jail was cleared
of smoke and personnel and
inmates were returned to the
building. There were no injuries
to the staff or to the inmates.


A Suwannee Man Is Found After

Extensive Search Of Fanning

Springs State Park Saturday

Night


An extensive search
concluded with the location of a
Suwannee man that had become
disoriented and lost during the
Fanning Springs Festival of
Lights Saturday evening. Ron
McQueen reported Francis
Bucksman was located near the
slough of a Fanning Springs run
along the river by a Florida
Wildlife Commission Officer as
the officer was searching from a
boat on the Suwannee River.
Mr. and Mrs. Bucksman
were attending the Fanning
Springs Festival of Lights on
Saturday when Mr. Bucksman
was reported to have wandered
off into the crowd around 4:30


p.m. Mrs. Bucksman felt that
her 80-year-old husband would
return in a short period of time.
At 5:30 p.m. Mrs. Bucksman
had not seen her husband and
became concerned about his
whereabouts. She contacted
Fanning Springs Park
authorities to begin a search for
Mr. Bucksman.
The Fanning Springs Park
authorities contacted the
Fanning Springs Fire Rescue as
well as the Old Town Fire
Department, Gilchrist, Levy and
Dixie County Sheriff Offices,
Florida Fish and Conservation
Commission officers, the
Florida Highway Patrol, Marion


County Law Enforcement
Office helicopter and Dixie
County Emergency
Management to search for the
missing man.
Just before 9:00 p.m. an
FWC officer contacted
authorities to advise that the
man was located near the river
along a spring run. The
authorities recovered the elderly
man and Gilchrist County,
Emergency Medical Service
checked the individual to make
sure that he was in good
physical condition.
Mr. and Mrs. Bucksman
returned to their home Saturday
night in Suwannee.


On Saturday, December 10,
many people enjoyed the Fan-
ning Springs Festival of Lights
& Boat Parade at Fanning
Springs State Park. The day
was filled with many craft and
food vendors, great musical
entertainment from local artists,
the ever popular "Ducky Race,"
Motorcycle Display, Classic Car
show and naturally Santa. The
"Ducky Race" winners were;:
first place Sue Gajewski; second
place Terrie Towers; and third
place Cindy Roth.
As the day drew to a close
Christmas lights came on to fill
the evening with Christmas spir-
it and wonder. This year's boat
parade was a little smaller than
previous years but it was still
lots of fun to see all the lights on
the boats!
Nine boats were judged and
honorable mention went to a
last minute entry by Cross City
United Methodist Church. In
the Small Boat Category first
place went to Teresa and Joe
Tompkins. They decorated
their 18.5 foot boat in the theme
"Santa's Sleigh." This was their
second year participating in the
boat parade and they decorated
the boat with 2,500 lights which
took about two weeks for them
to complete. Second place went
to William Couey and his first
mate Amanda Lamb and third
place went to Driftwood Realty
and Frank and Cheryl Nekola.
In the Medium Boat Category
first place went to the "Toys for
Tots" boat. The 20 foot pontoon
was decorated with over 4,000
lights to create the beautiful
flag. The boat was sponsored
by the Marine Corps League
Detachment 1018 of Chiefland.
The boat was crewed by Captain
Paul Davis, Jerry Bazar and Toys
for Tots Assistant Coordinator
for Tri-County, Vince Arcadi.
Onboard was also Woodstock,
Snoopy and Santa to help spread
the holiday cheer. The second
place winners were McNulty
Real Estate and third place
winner was Jackie and Jessyca
Gamble.
In the Large Boat Category


The first place winner in the "Large Boat Category" was 17-year veteran Mike Boyer in his boat
sponsored by NAPA stores in the Tri-County area and Marshall Phillips. His 32foot houseboat
was converted into a "paddlewheel boat" with the help of beautiful Christmas lights.


Shown on the back row are Lenora Jones on the keyboard, Todd Troyer, Denise Troyer, Felisha
Creamer, Donna Creamer, and Pastor Crawford. On the front row are Dallas Creamer, Katie

Members of Jennings Lake
Seventh-Day Adventist Church
helped spread the Christmas
spirit Wednesday, December 7,
by visiting and caroling at the
Ayers Health & Rehabilitation
Center. This was a heart fulfill-
ing experience for each caroler
to see the reaction of everyone
at Ayers through their smiles of
joy and happiness. After their
visit at Ayers the carolers went
to Trenton's Hitchocks where
many curious shoppers joined in
the festive caroling. The mem-
bers of Jennings Lake Seventh-
Day Adventist Church were
also on a mission to spread the
word about their FREE Drive-


Thru Live Nativity that they are
hosting again this year. If you
attended last year's Live Nativ-
ity then you know how great the
attraction is to see.
The members of the Jennings
Lake Seventh-Day Adventist
Church would like to invite
the community to experience
the sights and sounds of their
2nd annual "Live Drive-Thru
Nativity" on Friday, December
16; Saturday, December 17;

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.

John's

Comments
This past weekend as I was
spending a few hours in the
woods, I saw the most beautiful.
assortment of colors that I can
remember seeing in Florida in
many years.
The deep red colors were
displayed by many of the gum
trees, as the red maple displayed
a much brighter color of red.
The leaves of the hickory tree
have turned to a dull yellow as
the small thick cluster of leaves
of a cypress tree have changed
to a golden brown after the frost
has touched their leaves.
Saturday morning there was
a stiff chill in the air and very
little breeze at daylight, I was in
a tree stand by 6:15 a.m. in time
to hear, but not to see the
yapping of wild dogs and the
many sounds that are echoed in
the faint dim light of early day.
This year we have seen a
vast array of weather. During
the early portion of spring, we
experienced the most frequent
floods on the Suwannee River
that has e\er been recorded. As
the summer arri\ ed \i'th the hot
weather, the moisture seemed to,
dry up as the record number of
tropical storms stayed away
from North Central Florida in
2005. The absence of the
annual rains lbft the area in the
beginning stages of a drought.
Just in the last week has this
area begun to experience the
start of normal winter frontal
systems that often bring rain
prior to the arrival of .cold
fronts. I enjoy this time of year.
in North Florida as we


experience the freezing
temperatures and the sudden
warming from the bright
sunlight and the arrival of those
600 temperatures are expected
by the middle of the day.
As daylight arrived on
Saturday, the wind began! to
pickup and blew my scent back
into an area that I was hunting. I
was told that there were several
deer in this particular area, and I
was afraid that my scent would
spook them before I had a
chance to see them.
My luck this season has been
to see a lot of deer but none
with horns. Just before 7:30
a.m., I saw a number of does
and yearlings walk out of the
brush and down the road. There
was one big doe that was very
spooky. She kept looking in my
direction, but I was too high in
the tree and too far for her to
see me. I carefully watched the
deer hoping to eventually see a
legal horn, but it just was not
going to happen that morning.,
There have been some hogs
in the area I was hunting but
none of the tracks were made
since the previous rain.
I enjoyed the morning and
lIok for'%ard .to having this
opportunity again.


A thoughtful mind, when it
sees a Nation's flag, sees not the
flag only, but the Nation itself,
and whatever may be its sym-
bols, its, insignia, he reads
chiefly in the flag the Govern-
ment, the principles, the truths,
the history which belongs to the
Nation which belongs to the
Nation that sets it forth.

By Cindy Jo Ayers

I can't believe that it's nearly
Christmas it just seems like I
turned around and it's here. I
don't know about you but I still
have a lot of Christmas
shopping to do...Oh, joy, I get
to go to the mall. Maybe I'll be ,
creative this year and go to a
couple of antique stores instead.
John and I have been kicking
around a Christmas dinner
menu. We're talking about
frying a turkey and maybe
cooking a standing rib roast. My
mentor, Paula Dean, has a.
never-fail standing rib roast
recipe that I'm planning on
trying. Now that's an idea,
maybe I will go to a bookstore
and just buy everyone a Paula
Dean recipe book. The problem
with me in a bookstore is I find
way too many books that I
would like to have and usually
spend more money than I had
intended.
Fiying a turkey on Christmas
is a real good deal for a busy
kitchen because it frees up your
oven. It seems that I never have
enough oven space. John has
fried several turkeys through the
years and they are always good
and moist. And that skin on the
old bird is to die for. The turkey
skin is all crispy and hard...sort
of a turkey cracklin.' Man that
crunchy skin is good. Of course
I do like a pig cracklin' so it'
stands to reason that I would
love a turkey cracklin.' I
remember years ago when John
fried his first turkey. John's
sister Elizabeth and I sat around
the table talking long after the
meal was finished and picked at
that turkey skin. Before we
knew it we had eaten all the
skin off that bird. I have to tell
you a naked turkey is' not a
pretty sight.
I don't know about you but I
hope I don't race around in such
a hurry that Christmas is over
before we even have a chance to
enjoy it. As I grow older
Christmas.. becomes more and
more about family, friends, and

of course the food and less and
less about fancy gifts. This year
I want to take time to reflect on
what the season is truly all
about. It's a time for us to
remember and celebrate the
birth of Christ.

Some turkey tips: It's a good
idea to get outside in the yard to
fry your turkey. The peanut oil
will bubble up and sometimes
splash over the sides of the pot
and make a mess on the garage
floor or patio. Some people put
down big sheets of cardboard to
protect their floors.




1 10-pound turkey
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
McCormick's Seasoning
Salt or favorite dry rub
3 to 5 gallons of peanut oil
The day before you plan to
fry your turkey wash it inside
and out, remove the giblet pack
if it has one. Dry off with paper
towel and let drain a little while.
Coat bird with seasonings and
put it in the refrigerator
overnight. Take bird out in time
to let it come to room
temperature before frying.
Set up fish cooker in the yard.
Fill large pot with enough oil to
cover the bird. Heat oil to 350
degrees, use a cooking
thermometer to regulate the oil
temperature. Once the bird is
added, the temp of the oil will
drop a little, bring oil back to
350 degrees and keep it there by
regulating your flame for entire
cooking time.

The turkey should be cooked
for 3 minutes per pound, add an
additional 5 minutes cooking
time to ensure the doneness.
Remove turkey and draiY"on
paper to6 els. Let turkey rest for
about 15 minutes before cutting.
Tip for measuring oil: The
day before you plan to fry your
turkey. Place the washed
unseasoned turkey in the pot
you plan to fry it in. Add
enough water to cover. Remove
the turkey and the water level
will indicate the fill line for the
oil.


Gilchrist Remembers When...


The August 15, 1974 issue of The Journal carried an article
and this photo showing the opening of the Gold Nugget grain
elevator at the former Dixie Lilly plant. The article stated that
Gold Nugget would pay top market prices for corn, sorghum
and other grains.


Nate Johnson, left, is shown holding on to the ear of his
first deer he killed while hunting with Damon and Hadon
Leggett on November 18 in Gilchrist County. Damon
explained that these two boys really enjoyed this hunt.


Hadon is pleased to show off his first deer he killed while
hunting with his father Damon Leggett on November 18.


.That is not a very happy title. I imagine it alarms the
inner decency of most people and their feeling is
dismayed at such a thought. Truth be told, it is a
difficult subject to write about and talk about.
However, if truth is to be told, the subject of Hell is just
as important as the subject of Heaven. Why? They are
both very real.
It is easy to talk about going to Heaven (everyone
wants to go there) because of the beauty, grace, mercy
and love of God is fully expressed in the images of an
eternal life. Heaven is a place where there is no pain,
no sorrow, no tears and no death. Hell, on the other
hand, is a place that is nothing but pain, sorrow and
tears. Who wants to talk,about a place of torment
anyway?
First, we must understand that Hell is real. If you
believe in Jesus Christ (and you must to be saved -
John 8:24) then Hell is real. Jesus taught an eternal
punishment "Then shall he say also unto them on the
left hand Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting
fire, prepared for the devil and his angels ... And
these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but
the righteous into life eternal" (Matthew 25:41,46).
Jesus speaks about the "danger of hell fire" in
Matthew 5:22,29,30; 18:9; the "damnation of hell" in
Matthew 23:33; the rich man "lifting uphis eyes in
torment" in Luke 16:23 showing that punishment is
real.
The New Testament writers speak of the punishment
of God upon disobedience as in 2 Thessalonians 1:7,8 -
"And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the
Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his
mighty angels, In flaming fire taking vengeance on
them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel


of our Lord Jesus Christ." Peter writes, "For if God
spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down
to hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness, to
be reserved unto judgment" (2 Peter 2:4). John
declares in the Revelation that there will be a lake of
fire (Revelation 20).
Anyone who denies there is-a Hell denies the word of
God. Most people deny there is a Hell for two reasons:
First, they cannot fathom a loving God punishing
anyone. The scriptures show that God will destroy the
wicked. He did in the Flood (Genesis 6-9); Sodom and
Gomorrah (Genesis 13:13; chapter 19); even Israel
(Deuteronomy 28; Amos 4). Paul reminds us -
"Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God"
(Romans 11:22).
The second reason people deny Hell is the way they
live. We saw from 2 Thessalonians 1:7,8 that God will
punish those who "that know not God,and that obey
not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ Most people
deny God and most people do not obey the gospel.
Jesus affirmed this when He said, "Enter ye in at the
strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way,
that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which
go in threat" (Matthew 7:13).
Why is it that no one wants to go to Hell but most
people live as if they do? We cannot live anyway we
want but only in the will of the Father. It is not my will
but the will of the Father that must be followed. "Not
every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter
into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will
of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me
in that day, Lord, Lord ... then will I profess unto
them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work
iniquity" (Matthew 7:21-23).

For the junior readers K.
K. Beck's The Body In The
Cornflakes is a funny, lovely
mystery and will strike a chord
in everyone who has ever
shopped in a supermarket.
Judith Michael's trademark
storytelling verve combined
with fascinating settings and
characters who live on the page
have won this husband and wife
team an audience of millions.
Their tenth novel, A Certain
Smile, is a bittersweet story of a
perfect but impossible love, set
against the teeming, complex
energy and hidden dangers of
contemporary China.
With each new book Maeve
Binchy continues a remarkable
progression of sales and
audience growth, reaching fans
of all ages and backgrounds
with her matchless wit, warmth,
and sheer storytelling magic.
Tara Road, her first full-length

On December 6, 2005 the
Gilchrist County Democratic
Executive Committee held its
first organizational meeting in
preparation for the election sea-
son of 2006.
David Bruderly, candidate
for Congress -- District Six,
attended and discussed various
topics, especially some of
the crucial issues relating to
energy that face us in the near
future. There are possible bio-
fuel opportunities arising for
agriculture in'Gilchrist County.
,We will be paying close attention
to this developing information.
Chairman DeWayne Yates
led a discussion of upcoming
activities possible in 2006.
There will be scheduled
discussions of why we should
be Democrats and how the
image of mainstream Democrats
has been besmirched in recent
campaigns. The Committee
hopes to sponsor educational
opportunities for citizens of all
ages to encourage learning about
current government issues and
the importance of voting in our
rural county in the 21st Century.
There is plenty of work to do
for those citizens of Gilchrist
County who feel the need to
become involved and work for
the future of the Democratic
Party in Gilchrist County.
Watch for announcements of
future meetings in the Gilchrist
County Journal.

- you can become a part of our
2006 activities contact DeWayne

Chapter were pleased to host
the monthly birthday party for
the residents of Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation Center in Tren-
ton who were celebrating their
birthday.
Monnye Brown played the
piano, Iris Roberts brought a
beautiful birthday cake large
enough to serve honorees and
all those attending the party.
Gift bags were given, to the six
ladies and one gentleman, that
contained small items of toilet
articles, and other little gifts.
This is one occasion that our
members look forward to each
year. We like to let the residents

The guest speaker, Judy Fer-

the new year.
Plan to bring a dish for the
dinner table and also an item

Bits & Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County
Well, sir, it was a beautiful
crisp, clear day on Wednesday,
December 7, when Joyful Hearts
went out in their kitchens to
rattle those pots and pans (so the
song goes), and to get ready for
our annual Christmas covered
dish extravaganza...and that
word certainly fits the bill.
As cars, trucks, vans and
mini-vans converged on the fire
station, we looked like a mixed
assortment of Santa's elves load-
ed down with cards, gifts, and,
praise the Lord, delicious, delec-
table, delightful food, food and
more food. I believe, I counted
28 Joyful Hearts. That means at
least 28 dishes not counting ex-
tra desserts. It was a feast fit for
a king and indeed that was what
we were celebrating, the birth
of our King and Savior, Jesus
Christ, and all God's children


said, "Amen."
We agreed to meet at 10:00
a.m. instead of 9:00 a.m. so we
would not have as long to wait
to eat because the mixed aromas
of such wondrous dishes wafting
through the air can drive one to
sneaking a bite here and there,
(like very bad children). Need-
less to say it didn't work, we had
to nibble a little.
We did not craft or quilt but
instead decorated goodie bags
and filled them for residents at
Ayers nursing home in Trenton.
We also collected numerous
Toys for Tots living in Gilchrist
County.
Marvine Deer had told us sev-
eral weeks ago of a family going
through a difficult time and we
collected food, furnished a ham
and presents to help carry out
the true meaning of Christmas
giving. God gave us the great-
est gift of all, His Son. It is up
to us to honor that gift of giving
in return. The North Pole could
not have been any busier than
28 Joyful Hearts hustling and
bustling, laughing and chatting,
stuffing bags and heating up
food and all the while sharing
the spirit of Christmas.
Once all the bags had been
decorated and filled, the tables,
that only moments before were
bare except for brightly colored
tablecloths, in a twinkling of
an eye were transformed into
a smorgasbord of unbelievable
dishes and desserts. I can't be-
gin to list or describe them all
but the ohhs and aahs told the
story.
After Elaine Nemeth said
the blessing the feeding frenzy
began. The group, that shortly
before sounded like what it must
have sounded like at the Tower
of Babel, was suddenly notice-
ably quiet. Occasionally the
question, "who made the..." fol-
lowed by, "I want that recipe,"
broke the silence, but for the
most part we ate, and ate, and
ate some more. Oh well, New
Year's is just around the corer
and we'll all go on our annual
"after the first of the year diet."
Yeah, right, not as long as about
half of this group is Baptist.
We all had a wonderful time
and agreed that we ate too much
and had to be better organized
about getting ready for Christ-
mas next year. It seems to me
we all say that every year,., .1
don't know about you, but'I get
worse each year, not better.- If
intentions count well, I'm in like
Flynn, but as Dr. Phil would say,

"How's that working' for you?"
Well, when we could all move
again we cleaned up, picked up
and packed tp. Some folks are
planning on meeting on Decem-
ber 21st and the 28th and some,
are not. You need to check it
out with others before making
the trip. January meeting is set
for the 4th.
We passed out hugs and best
wishes and piled in our vehicles
and made our way home. I
always come away feeling so
blessed to be able to spend time
with so many joyous women, es-
pecially this time of the year.
I love Christmas and all
it brings. I love hearing the
Christmas story and hearing
and singing Christmas carols. I
love children's Christmas plays
and carolers at the door. I love
the decorations inside and out.
I love driving down dark high-
ways and roads and seeing all
the wonderful lights celebrating
His birth. It is His light that
shines in a dark and troubled
world and regardless of what
the intentions of the home owner
is, how you perceive it is what
makes it Christmas.
I love the cold crisp nights
with a black velvet sky with
stars like millions of diamonds
scattered by our Maker's hand. I
try to imagine what it must have
been like for those shepherds
abiding in the fields watching
their flocks when the angels of
the Lord came to bring them
tidings of great joy that was to
be for all people. Christmas is a
promise from the heart of God.
I bought a number of boxes
of Christmas cards this year but
there is one I'd like to share with
everyone who reads this article.
How To Let Your Light Shine
At Christmas and Always
Work with joy. Pray with
love. Dream from your heart.
Share what you have. Live sim-
ply. Love deeply. Thank God
always.
'Til next time, Merry Christ-
mas and God's blessings.
A Joyful Heart,
Marilyn Runde

Tri-county friends and comrades;
Tonight (Thursday) is our annual Christmas Dinner. Please plan
on attending. It is at the post home at 7 PM. Please bring a
covered dish and non-perishables for the food bank. Enjoy the
comradeship with YOUR area veterans.
The majority of veterans in nursing homes do not have a
Christmas Party. A lot don't have any friends or family. Veterans
in a lot of cases are 'Forgotten People'. We feel it is an honor to
help people who don't have a lot of family and have trouble taking
care of themselves.
Everyone is so worried about being politically correct and not
offending anyone, but Christmas is not complicated. It rests in the
hearts of people everywhere, all of the
time. Christmas is pure and simple. We find Christmas every day
in so many ways. Christmas is love and when we give it, we get it
back.
Christmas is a reminder that the Child born that first Christmas
was never too young to teach and as a prayer that we never be too
old to learn.
Our legion and auxiliary programs are dedicated to veterans and
children. We are continuously working them year around. It just
means so much more during the holidays We solicit your kind
support for all our programs helping the community, state and
nation. Please remember us in your donations.
The holidays are a time for family and friends. Enjoy every
opportunity to spend time with them. So often we avoid some of
the get together and miss the chance to
tell everyone that we love them. If you don't seize every chance it
may be to late. Our young men and women serving our country,
in harms way, need all the love and prayers we can give them.
Remember the sacrifices they are making for our FREEDOM.
FOR GOD AND COUNTRY

QUIET REFLECTIONS
Great Faith That Smiles is
Born of Great Trials.
It's easy to say "In God we
trust"
When life is radiant and fair,
But the test of faith is only
found


When there are burdens to
bear-
For our claim to faith in the
"sunshine"
Is really no faith at all,
For when roads are smooth
and days are bright
Our need for God is so small,
And no one discovers the
fullness
Or the greatness of God's
love
Unless they have walked in
the "darkness"
With only a light from above-
For the faith to endure what-
ever comes
Is born of sorrow and trials,
And strengthened only by
discipline
And nurtured by self denials-
So be not disheartened by
troubles,
For trials are the "building
blocks"
On which to erect a fortress
of faith
Secure on God's
"ageless rocks."
-Helen Steiner Rice

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY
I'll leave you with this thought
for today: It is better to look
ahead and prepare than to
look back and regret..

Blue Flames Win
Soccer Championship
On Saturday, December 10th,
the Championship 2005 Soccer
Game was played between the
Blue Flames, who are sponsored
by The Tackle Box in Fanning
Springs and coached by Terrie
Brooks, Chuck Vogel and Roger
Bowland, and Pruitts's Heating
and Air which is coached by
Debbie Pruitt.
This game followed a tie game
played by these two teams earlier
in the season. This final game
was the game that determined
the season champions.
The game was neck and neck
and tied at first 1 to 1 and then
2 to 2 followed by a 3 to 3 tie.
In the last 2 1/2 minutes of the
game Chance Brooks passed the
ball to his brother Chad Brooks
who took the ball in for the
winning goal. The game ended
with a score of 4-3.


GRATEFULNESS
Is Character
Council's Trait For
December
The opposite of GRATE-
FULNESS is unthankfulness.
GRATEFULNESS is the state of
being appreciative for benefits
received. It is an attitude or dem-
onstrati'on of appreciation.
The word GRATEFULNESS
comes from theLatin word, gra-
tus, meaning "free; ready, quick,
willing; prompt." One who is
grateful has a healthy sense of
indebtedness toward those who
have benefited his or her life.
Grateful people are free, ready,
quick, willing and prompt to
outwardly show appreciation to
those to whom it is due.
Appreciation, gratitude and
thanks are words often used
interchangeably but they each
have very precise meanings that
complement and balance one an-
other. *Appreciation is setting a
value on something. It is esteem-
ing a person, object, experience
or idea. *Gratitude is the feeling
one has after a kind word, deed
or gift has been received, espe-
cially when it was unexpected or
undeserved. *Thanks is the out-
ward expression toward those
who have inspired gratitude. It
is acknowledging that a favor
has been received.
Being grateful for other people

person's entire outlook on life on
a day-to-day basis. By affirming
to oneself daily by showing
appreciation to others, writing
"thank you" notes, taking care
of personal possessions, being
content, and counting benefits
rather than burdens are ways to
implement GRATEFULNESS
and focus our attention on oth-
ers rather than ourselves. Many
people go through life without
ever feeling appreciated or ac-
knowledged. Praising others
with GRATEFULNESS can
break that pattern.
GRATEFULNESS is not de-
pendent on ones' circumstances.
Rather it is a matter of choice.
A grateful person looks beyond
his or her present condition and
concentrates on what lessons of
value can be learned in every
situation.
Part of GRATEFULNESS is
realizing that everything a per-
son has can be attributed to an-,
other's investment in his or her
life. Further, GRATEFULNESS
is seeking ways to honor those
who are responsible for ones'
success. GRATEFULNESS is
not an attempt to "make up"
for what others have done, but
to demonstrate how much their
investment is appreciated.
GRATEFULNESS can be
expressed every time a person
receives praise for good charac-
ter or achievements. A person's
accomplishments usually are
not the result of his or her ef-
forts alone. It is often due to
the assistance of others. A per-
son being praised who fails to
acknowledge the work of others
communicates the false idea that
he or she alone is responsible for
success. When being praised,
such a prideful message can be
avoided by expressing GRATE-
FULNESS for others. Do so by
.the following: 1) Thank the one
whb praises you. 2) Praise the
one who thanks you. 3) Rec-
ognize those who helped you. 4)
Distinguish praise from flattery.
People learn character best
from real-life examples which
speak far louder than words. As
we all continue to understand
that character training should
be a life-long pursuit,.present-
ing character first in our lives
proves to others that we live in
a Community of Friendship and
Character because our Commu-
nity cares.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, December 8, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
It's all over, almost. The Quilt
Show was a huge success and
we had over 600 to enjoy ev-
erything. Jean Frost, from In-
verness, won the Flower of the
Month quilt and now it's time
to start the quilt for the Water-
melon Festival. Everything will
stay up until Christmas and then
we will get back to normal. We
want to thank all the newspapers
for their help in letting everyone
know about the show.
Eleven quilts have been sold
so far and so much more. Our
good friends from Dahlonega,
Georgia, Bobby and Doris
Gunter, come to see us every
year and they brought a big
bag of turnip roots and they are,
so good. I want to thank the
members for all they do during
the show. Cleo Pravatt took care
of all the money; Marie Pop-
penhager worked the kitchen
for our chicken and dumpling
dinner; Alice Mae Haire quilted;
Goldie McHenry took care of
the tickets; Alice Eakes helped
wherever; Maria DeLeon kept
everything in order; and Vern
Jordan and Pat Osowiecki
helped wherever there was a
need. Thanks to all who came
and now we look forward to next
year's show.
Greg Stavley and six boys
were out on Tuesday. They
hung quilts, peeled turnips,
stuffed pillows and did whatever
was needed.
Lunch was great with meat
loaf, mashed potatoes, turnips,
veggie pizza, salad, eggs, mixed
vegetables, lemon pie, yummy
cake, and so much more. We
had 18 members and one guest
present.

Florida Virtual School is one
strategy used by our Gifted
Teachers to provide advanced
coursework, or to provide
courses not currently available
to students. Many middle school
gifted students are enrolled in
on-line. advanced placement
courses that are overseen by.
our gifted teachers. Advanced
placements offer our students the
opportunity to have challenging
coursework that increases
academic performance in core
content areas of English, Math,
Science, and Social Studies. In
addition to core content areas,
students may select courses of
interest to them by working with
the Teacher of the Gifted and
their school guidance counselor.
Students are required to be
motivated, responsible and
organized in order to keep up
with the schedule and pace of
online classes. Some students
use the virtual school as a means
of acceleration (i.e., taking
Algebra ahead of schedule).
Three middle school students
in the Trenton lab chose to
take a fine arts course. On
Thursday, November 17, the
Trenton lab was excited to have
Polly Werner, Florida Virtual
School (FLVS) teacher, visit
their classroom. Ms. Werner
has 250 students in her fine arts
class ART IID. She states that
"The Gilchrist County. students
are some of the top students in
her class". The students are
required to. complete fine art
assignments, while learning
to scan and submit their work
to her electronically. Students
in this class learn about basic
design and drawing principles;
how to make gesture and
contour drawings, use basic
design elements, like balance,
repetition, variety, harmony,
texture, tonality, and color
schemes. They are asked
to analyze examples of
contemporary art, study
examples from art history, and
apply what they've learned in
order to create their own art.
Assignments are required to
"apply literacy to art works."
Ms. Werner is a student at the
University of Florida where she
is obtaining a Master's Degree
in "Literacy and the Arts." She
has also recently completed the
application process to become
a National Board Certified
Teacher.
Much thanks go to our
school board members and


administration for supporting
this innovative way of teaching!
Our students are enjoying this
new way of learning, while at
the same time increasing the
rigor and relevance of their
education!

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 down your
choices,' and help you choose the
rAiht hnm n fnr.vnnr fmilv

NOTICE OF DRAFT PERMIT
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its
preparation of a draft permit.
FLA285331, for Dairy Production
Systems Bell Farms, LLC to
Mr. David P. Sumrall, 23343 NW
CR 246, High Springs, FL 32643
to construct and operate a partial
confinement dairy. The facility is an
existing dairy farm operation with a
proposed herd size of 1650 mature
dairy cows (maximum annual
average) and 594 (annual average)
dry cows. The facility consists
of 6 partial confinement barns, a
milking parlor, silage storage area
and a 255,000 cubic feet waste
storage pond system. Manure
will be scraped from the barns and
associated loafing lots and then
stored on a concrete lined staging
area that drains into the wastewater
treatment pond. Manure will be
flushed from the milk parlor to the
wastewater treatment system. The
dry cows will reside on 86.3 acres
of onsite pasture and 322 acres of
leased offsite pasture.
A Nutrient Management Plan
(NMP) has been developed for
this facility, based on an average
of 189,000 gallons per day
for sprinklers, udder washing,
milking parlor flush, and other
miscellaneous. All wastewater and
stormwater from the production area
will be directed to the 255,000 cubic
feet waste storage pond. Clean
water from roof run-off is diverted
away from the waste collection
system. Waste from the storage
pond will be applied at agronomic
rates to 215 acres of spray irrigation
crop fields.
The system is designed as
follows: wastewater will flow by
gravity to a sand trap and then a
static screen separator.
Solids removed from the
separator will be stored on a
concrete pad, and will be hauled off-
site or incorporated into crop fields
onsite at agionomic rates. Filtrate
from the separator will gravity flow
to the waste storage pond, which has
been designed to contain 7 days of
wastewater storage and the runoff
from the production, area for a 25
year 24 hour rainfall event. The
facility is located at latitude 29 43'
26" N, longitude: 82 51' 11" W on
U.S. 129 and SW 10th Street, Bell,
Florida in Gilchrist County.

NOTICE OF DRAFT PERMIT
The Department of Environmental
Protection gives notice of its
preparation of a draft permit,
FLA116173, for Dairy Production
Systems, LLC to Mr. David P.
Sumrall, 23343 NW CR 246, High
Springs, FL 32643 to construct and
operate a partial confinement dairy.
The facility is an existing dairy farm
operation with an annual lactating
herd size of 2,050 cows and 500
dry coys. The facility consists of
a milking parlor, feed/shade barns,
silage storage area and a waste
storage pond system. Manure will
be flushed from the milk parlor and
barns and directed to the wastewater
treatment system.
The design flow rate of generated
wastewater is expected to range from
0.141 MGD in the winter months to
0.25' MGD in the summer months.
The dairy wastewater treatment
system consists of appurtenances
necessary to collect all wastewater
and contaminated storm water
runoff from the milking parlor area,
and feed/shade barns and consists
of a concrete lined solids trap with
a screen type mechanical solids
separator, two concrete lined waste
storage ponds, including a 185,500
ft3 first stage pond and a 121,000
ft3 aerated second stage pond with
spray irrigation at agronomic rates
to 398 acres of cropland. Solids
collected from the system are spread

disposal at agronomic rates.
Dry cows at the facility are
allowed to graze on the land
application crop areas in such a way
that nutrient loading rates are not
exceeded for the crops on the field.
The dairy also has approximately
112 acres of loafing lots and pasture
areas, which are to be managed to
reduce formation of high intensity
areas (HIA's). These loafing
lots and pasture areas contain
underdrains in depressional areas,
which aid in reducing standing
water and provide for percolation.

Bell Miss
Christmas
Pageant Is
A Great
Success
By Joyce Philman
Saturday, December 3 was a
day that holiday spirit swept the
town of Bell. The day was spent
with jolly Santa visits, foot
tapping music and a festive
parade that brought joy to
onlookers lining the main street.
Participating in the parade were
many lovely ladies who were to
be contestants in the annual
Miss Christmas pageant being
held that evening in the Bell
Middle High School
auditorium.
This event was hosted by
Terri Carnley and Tiffany Liles,
both sponsors of the Bell High
School Junior class. The
proceeds of the event will help
to fund Bell High School's
Junior-Senior Prom which is
held in the spring. More than
100 girls from the local and
surrounding areas participated.
They ranged in age from 4 to 18
and were divided into six school
grade based categories. Four
judges traveled from Cross City,
Chiefland and Jacksonville to
assist with the event. They were
chosen based on their various
experiences with pageants. In
the spirit of the season they
donated their time to support
this event.

Bronson Announces
Cash Seizure And Pot
Arrest During Busy
Weekend At
Interdiction Stations
Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
on December 12, the detection
and seizure of more than $1.
million in U.S. currency, and the
arrest of a Canadian man who
was allegedly trying to smuggle
nearly $2.2 million in marijuana
into Florida in separate incidents
over the weekend at north Flori-
da Interdiction Stations.
In the first incident, officers
with Bronson's Office of Ag-
ricultural Law Enforcement'
(OALE) used a gamma ray im-
aging machine to scan the cargo
area of a truck hauling marble
which was heading west on In-
terstate 10. Officers at the I-10
Interdiction Station near Live
Oak during the Saturday morn-
ing inspection found two hid-
den compartments in the cargo


area of the truck that concealed
$1,005,000 in U.S. Currency.
Authorities seized the money
when the driver of the vehicle,
Emilio Arevalo Quintero, of
Texas. told them he had no
knowledge of the money's ex-
istence. The marble shipment
was destined for Las Vegas, said
authorities.
In the second incident at the
Interstate-95 Interdiction Sta-
tion near Jacksonville, OALE
officers searched a truckload of
concentrated creamer that was
headed to an Apopka ice cream
plant late Friday. Again using
a gamma ray imaging machine,
officers detected hollowed-out
portions of wooden pallets that
held the creamer concentrate and
found 361 pounds of marijuana
concealed in the makeshift hid-
ing place. Authorities claim the
street value of the pot is nearly
$2.2 million.
The weekend incidents cap a
busy two years at the Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services' 22 Interdiction
Stations, where during that
period officers have recovered
an estimated $13 million in nar-
cotics, stolen goods and contra-
band at the locations, including
$7 million in cocaine seizures,
$600,000 in stolen medicines,
60 large-screen televisions and
a truckload of pilfered com-
puter chassis.


FWC Lowers Gulf
Red Grouper
Recreational Bag
Limit
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) today approved a rule
that lowers the recreational bag
limit for red grouper in Gulf of
Mexico state waters from two
fish daily per person to one fish.
The new limit takes effect in
January.
The FWC wants to help en-


sure that a ten-year rebuilding
plan for the over-fished Gulf red
grouper fishery is successful.
The FWC expects the reduced
bag limit to result in a 30-
percent annual reduction in Gulf
red grouper recreational harvest.
Recently, Florida anglers may
harvest two red grouper daily in
Gulf state waters (out to nine
nautical miles from shore). In
federal waters, which extend
beyond state waters, all recrea-
tional harvest of red grouper is
currently prohibited until Jan. 1
under a temporary federal rule.
When federal waters reopen to
red grouper harvest in January,
a one-fish daily limit also will
apply.
The recreational five-fish
daily aggregate grouper bag
limit and the 20-inch total
length minimum size limit for
red grouper remain unchanged
in both state and federal waters.
For further information
on grouper management
in Florida, see

City And Farmers Market

Director Vow To Bring Market

To Trenton Depot


The City of Trenton came
closer this week in the
establishment of a community
farmers' market in its downtown
redevelopment area. The city has
hired farmers' market consultant
Sharon Yeago, of High
Springs, to develop and open a
community farmers' market in
the Trenton Depot. The Depot
is owned and operated by the
State of Florida, Department
of Environmental Protection's
Office of Greenways and Trails.
The City of Trenton has entered
into an agreement with the
state that will allow the city to


restore, manage and maintain
the Depot in order to sponsor
public events, such as a farmers'
market. The agreement requires
that approximately 25 percent
of all vendor revenues from the
Depot will be used by the city
for management of the facility.
The Trenton City Commission
has recommended that the market
be held on a monthly basis and
include participation from local
growers, crafters and community
service organizations. A strict
compliance with market rules
will be enforced once the final
rules are in place to ensure that


no flea market type of products
are sold. "The City has been
working on a farmers' market
for a while, and it's very exciting
to start planning the details. The
depot is a perfect location and
we hope that, as Main Street
improvements get underway,
the market will be a catalyst for
more activity," stated Trenton
City Manager Jered Ottenwess.
As part of Yeago's agreement
with the City of Trenton, she will
help develop a plan of action in
establishing the community
farmers' market.
She will develop the Market's

Mr. And Mrs. Ray
Thomas Chosen
As "Mr. and Ms.
Silver Bells" Of
Bell
(Continued from Page One)
on to the University of Florida.
During this time their family
began to grow and God blessed
them with four, healthy baby
boys. While serving as the coun-
ty nurse and devoting many long
hours to the people of Gilchrist
County, Joanna encouraged Ray
to not only obtain his Bachelor's
Degree in Agriculture, but to
further move on and obtain his
Master's Degree in Business
Administration.
"Ray taught high- school
Ag in Dixie County and also
served as Vocational Director
for a few years before running
for Superintendent of Schools
in Gilchrist County. Ray was
elected and served as Superin-
tendent for eight years. During
this time his goal was to ensure
a top-quality education could
be obtained in Gilchrist County
Schools. He was also instru-
mental in ensuring that non-
instructional employees in the
school system were provided for
just as the instructional employ-
ees, both in salary and benefits.
During his tenor as superinten-
dent, Bell High School received
their accreditation.
"Joanna was still providing
top quality health care for the
rural area. Many of her Friday
afternoons were spent making
house calls, provided it wasn't
during football season when
her boys were on the field. She
could then be found marching
up and down the sideline as she
served as the "team doctor" for
all the players. She would make
house calls, give shots, deliver
medications and check on many
of the elderly in the county who
were unable to make it in to
clinic. Hours were long, but her
dedication to this community
was unwavering. Many calls
were received at all hours of
the night with mothers wanting
a little comfort and advice for
their sick child. Many stitches
were laced in the kitchen due
to the clinic being closed and
no transportation to Gaines-
ville being convenient. Joanna
also served as President of the
Woman's Club for two consecu-
tive years.
"Ray and Joanna were active
in the Athletic Booster Club,
FFA Alumni, served on the Su-
wannee River Fair Board, have
taught Sunday School and many,
many other service oriented ac-
tivities. Their life, their legacy
will be one of service, selfless
service that is rare in this time of
"I want it now" thinking. They
continue to support many, many
local charities and activities,
mostly behind the scenes and
not in the spotlight.
"They now live on that same
family farm with their four sons,
three daughter-in-laws and nine
grandchildren. Their grandchil-
dren are all growing up learning
the same life lessons and becom-
ing fourth generation farmers.


If you ever drive by during
watermelon season or cane
grinding, you won't be allowed
to pay for the watermelons or
that delicious bottle of syrup,
but you will certainly be allowed
to have one. Again, very giving
individuals.
"Having known Ray and
Joanna Thomas for the past 25
years, I have found them to be
two of the finest people I have
ever met. Their motto of "Ser-
vice before Self" can be seen
in so many aspects of their life.
They are good hearted, never
meet a stranger and would liter-
ally "give someone the shirt off
their back" if they needed it. I
could continue to go on and on
bragging about these two fine
individuals.
"I will close by telling you I
have never met two people more
made for one another. Always
willing to help, always willing to
give, always willing to serve. I
love them dearly and thank God
for allowing me to have such
fine in-laws.
"Thank you for allowing me to
submit Ray and Joanna Thomas
for consideration as Mr. & Ms.
Silver Bells."
After reading the information
sent by Julie Thomas, daughter
in-law of the Thomas', I felt
no finer words could describe
these individuals. They are
simply outstanding members
of the community and certainly
deserve the honor of now car-
rying the title of "Mr. and Ms.
Silver Bells" to represent the
best of everything found in our
little town. In the next 25 years
(2030) the silver color of the
parade celebration may change
to gold, but the hearts of these
two wonderful people have been
a beautiful golden color forever
and will never change. Con-
gratulations Mr. Ray and Ms.
Joanna Thomas, "Mr. and Ms.
Silver Bells" of Bell, YOU ARE
LOVED!
All the children, Ray, John,
Bruce and Dan, of Mr. and Mrs.
Ray Thomas, each went their
own separate way to find what
they wanted in life and have all
now returned to this area raising
their children as they were raised,
living in a community among
some of the finest people in the
world. As parents/grandparents,
I would bet life just doesn't get
any better than that.
The parade committee would
like to thank the Silver Bells
Committee for all the time taken
in choosing "Mr. and Ms. Silver
Bells" in recognition of the Town
of Bell celebrating the 25th An-
niversary of the finest Parade
around, the Bell Christmas Pa-
rade held the first Saturday of
December each year. Next year
the theme is "Camo Christmas."
Will there be a "Mr. and Ms.
Camo?"


I'm at the foot of the ladder...
I'm going to step off... now.
That's one small step for man.
One giant leap for mankind.
