Andi Egan To Be A Candidate For Crystal River Woman Sustains Critical

Gilchrist School Board In Injury After Being Struck By Skyrocketing

District 5 Fish Saturday Near Sun Springs

I would like to take this op-
portunity to introduce myself to
the citizens of Gilchrist County.
My name is Ann Marie (Anni)
Egan, and I am a candidate for
:the District 5 School Board Seat.
As a dedicated teacher, I have
first-hand experience dealing
with the complex issues that
parents, students, and school
employees face on a daily basis.
I feel I am well qualified to rep-
resent the public at the district
level and will strive to make the
,best decisions for all parties in-
volved, while always taking into
consideration my constituents'
needs and desires.

To The Citizen's of Gilchrist
I, Deight Curtis, announce.
my intent to run for the position
of School Board, District I.
Over the past several years,
the school system in Gilchrist
County has worked diligently
to ensure each student receives
a good education and our school
ratings have surpassed other
school systems throughout the
state to become one of only a
handful of A schools in the state.
This is quite and honor and we
must work hard to maintain this,
I recently attended The Shared
Network Services meeting at
Trenton High School and was
enlightened as to the dilemma
our children will be facing
in the future regarding job
We are in a changing world
and for our children's future
success we must make education
one of our top priorities. As a
community, we must be ready
and willing to continue with the

I will dedicate full time to the
seat on the School Board and

Senator Rod Smith
Touts Bill For Rural
Senator Rod Smith, co-spon-
sor of Senate Bill 1612 to
provide additional revenues for
"fiscally constrained" coun-
ties, encourages rural county
residents and elected officials to
contact their legislators, to urge
them to support SB 1612.
"Our small counties in north
Florida need the help this bill
will provide because many are at
their limit for taxes," said Smith.
"This is the second year we've
tried to get this bill passed, and
this year it has made it past all
the committee hurdles in the
Senate and the House. I expect
it to be on the floor for a vote
in both chambers soon. I want
to remind our local government
leaders to help motivate the
Legislature to take action on
the issue this year and to work
together to clarify outstanding
issues pertaining to the funding
of the proposal."
The Revenue Estimating
Conference has estimated that
the amount available to 29 "fis-
cally constrained" counties will
be approximately $16 million
for fiscal year 2006-07. The
estimated amounts range from
a high-of $792,631 for Union,
Holmes and Calhoun Counties
to a low of $160,524 for Frank-
lin County.
Senator Smith credits bills
sponsors Representative Joe
Pickens and Senator Carey
Baker with creating support for
the effort. He points out, "This is
truly a bi-partisan effort by those
us who represent and understand
the challenges facing small
counties in Florida." The Sena-
tor notes that the bill is expected
to be on calendar for a vote in
both the Senate and the House
prior to the end of session.
Senator Smith notes that this is
a change that the counties have
been seeking for some time. "I
know that in the past, the Legis-
lature has assigned new duties to
our county governments without
providing the funding support
for new mandates. It is our job to

A couple out. on the
Suwannee River for an
afternoon boat ride were struck
by tragedy Saturday when a
large fish jumped out of the
water into the air and struck a
passenger in a boat.
The Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation
Commission reported that Dawn
E. Poirer, 31, of Crystal River
was struck in the front portion
of her head when the fish,
believed to have been a
sturgeon, came over the side of
the boat and knocked the
woman out of her boat seat.
The incident occurred
around 5:30 p.m. as the couple
was traveling south in the Sun
Springs area between Gilchrist
and Dixie counties. Johnston R.
Staples III of St. Petersburg was
steering the boat, but was not
injured in the accident.

High Tech Treasure

Hunt Sparks

Statewide Contest

By Anna Wild
Would you like to know the
hottest trend in travel? Geo-
caching (pronounced geo-cash-
ing), is a hobby that uses hand-
held Global Positioning Satellite
(GPS) systems to seek hidden
treasure. The Original Florida
Tourism Task Force, with the
help of VISIT FLORIDA's pilot
program to promote tourism in
rural areas, launched a statewide
contest on April 20th as a way
to showcase the fun places of
North Florida.
The Original Florida cre-
ated a geocaching trail through
North Florida to highlight the
hidden treasures of the region
from Gainesville to Cedar Key,
up to Tallahassee, and then east
to White Springs. The Hid-
den Treasures of North Florida
Geocaching Contest 2006 is
a modern-day scavenger hunt
that lets visitors win cool things
while they vacation. Contes-
tants need only find 7 of the

13 caches listed under "Hid-
den Treasures of N Florida"
on www.geocaching.com and
log onto www.geocaching.com
www.OriginalFlorida.org and by
clicking on the Hidden Treasures
Contest logo on the home page.
Then answer simple questions
about the caches for a chance to
win several vacation get-aways,
including a luxury trip down
the Suwannee River Wilderness
Trail, a brand new kayak, and a
new Garmin CSx60 GPS unit.
. So what is Geocaching?
There are people who hide little
packages called caches, all over
the world. They list the latitude
and longitude on a web site and
participants use the information
for a treasure hunt. The GPS
units receive signals from satel-
lites, fixing the latitude and lon-
gitude of canisters from as large
as a bread box to as small as a
film canister. Using clues pro-

and studiously behind the scenes
to resolve difficult issues. "Good
politics is the art of finding win-
win solutions," Boyd said.
She wants to take these con-
sensus-building skills to Talla-
hassee. Boyd says, "People fre-
quently tell me how concerned
they are about the bipartisan
bickering and the lack of civility
among our elected officials. It
doesn't need to be that way. In
Newberry, we've tackled diffi-
cult environmental, telecommu-
nication, public safety and other
issues without making someone
feel like they've lost."
Boyd says that the character

Fishing Trip Turns
Deadly For Crystal
River Man
A Crystal River man died and
his son was injured in a boating
accident near marker 34 in the
barge canal Saturday morning.
George P. Tichey Sr., 56,
and his son, George P. Tichey,
Jr., 16, were in the barge canal
north of Crystal River for a
day of fishing. Their vessel,
a 1998 12-foot, nine-inch
Gheenoe with a trolling motor,
capsized when a wave hit it,
knocking both Ticheys into
the water. The elder Tichey
lost consciousness, and his son
attempted to keep his father's
head out of the water, according
to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators.
The U.S. Coast Guard
picked up the two boaters and
transported them to the FWC
Crystal River Field Office boat
ramp. Emergency medical
personnel then took the Ticheys
to Seven Rivers Hospital in
Crystal River, where the elder
Tichey was pronounced dead.
FWC investigators recovered
the vessel. The investigation is

I had the opportunity to
accompany a group of friends to
Georgia to fish at McGruder
Farm in April. I had been told
that on this farm were some of
the finest fishing lakes with the
best bass fishing that anyone
could possibly experience. I was
skeptical at first, but after
fishing this stump-filled area of
shallows and deep troughs for
several days, I'm sure that this
is the type of lake that many of
the fishing television shows are,
produced on. I have never
fished a; lake that allowed tfe
potential for a trophy fish to be
caught on every given cast.
The McGruder Community
is located in Burke County, with
Midville, a small community of
500 population being the nearest
town to this historic rural
farming area.
I fished with Billy Cannon
on his boat. Billy and I ,were
along with Randy Durden and
his wife Diane and Joe Gilliam
and his wife Dee. We all fished
in three different-_boats.during...
the three days and experienced
some unbelievable bass fishing.
I guess it is a sign of my age
when I look at an area and it
reminds me of my home in the
mid 1960s. This was the case
when we drove up through
central Georgia northeast of
Swainsboro into Midville. Billy
and I were looking for a tackle
shop, something like Bass Pro
Shop's Outdoor World, but we
settled for the small town tackle
store that had just opened the
week before.
I was towing Billy's Triton
bass boat as we passed through
many small towns. We drew
the stares from several people

that I'm sure would also like to
be fishing on a Tuesday
morning. When we stopped at..
Fargo, Georgia to buy gas, a-
couple of guys coming out of a
convenience store wanted to
know where we were going
fishing. Billy replied, McGruder
Plantation, up at Midville. They
explained that a Devils Horse
top water bait is the bait of
When we pulled up in front
of the tackle store'in Midville
and walked in, an elderly fellow
asked us if we were the guys
with the bass boat parked out
front. Billy explained, "yep,
that's us and we have come all
the way up here 'from Florida."
Billy then drew a lot more
conversation when he told the
three or four guys in the store
that we were going to fish at
McGruder Plantation. The
owner of the store quickly
replied that he had always
wanted to fish at this lake, but'
he had never been invited.
The storeowner went -on to
tell us that he was from Daytona
Beach, Florida and had moved
to this area less than two years
ago. He showed us several
- photos of big fish that he had
caught in area lakes.
We bought several things
from the new store, and as we
were walking out, the owner
reminded us to take good photos
and stop back by to share them
with the guys.
This is a classic fishing tale;
as is the normal, the biggest of
the fish caught or hung on this
trip once again are still
swimming in the lake. Not
because they were caught and
released, but they broke my line
and everyone else's line too. Joe
and Dee Gilliam both caught
bass over 8-pounds and made
pictures with the fish before

A few brief words in last
week's release of the minutes
of the latest Federal Reserve
meeting suggesting an end to
interest rate hikes resulted in
Wall Street's strongest one-day
rally this year, despite ever
increasing energy prices.
However, let the inflation
genie start to creep out of the
bottle, as evidenced in the
following day's .posting by
the Labor Department of a 0.3
percent rise in the core consumer
price index (CPI), the largest one
month increase for that statistic
this year, and suddenly its gloom
and doom on Wall Street.
Furthermore, core inflation,
which excludes food and energy
prices, was up at an annual rate
of 2.8 percent for the first three
months of this Near. slightly
higher than the 2.2 percent
increase for all of 2005. One
or two more months of similar
increases in the core CPI and
you will likely see the Fed
continue to push rates up at
each meeting for the rest of the
year, which will further roil the,
So how do you protect
yourself from the seemingly
endless vagaries of Wall Street?
The answer is simple. You create
a portfolio of companies you
trust and understand, utilizing
an investment horizon measured
in years.
, For example, one company
that could' be an excellent
addition to most any portfolio
is the Genlyte Group. Genlyte
holds a 100 percent interest in
Genlyte Thomas Group LLC,
the leading manufacturer of
lighting figures and controls!

and presidential markett'

The McGruder community
has a lot of history and the
McGruder Farm is located in a
very historical area that still has
an old' commissary building
standing on the property.
I am very appreciative of

this trip with and meeting folks
like Buddy Wren, the manager
of McGruder Farm. It was a lot
of fun and was a trip of a

Although I haven't eaten
there in several years the Dillard
House in Dillard, Georgia has
been a favorite of mine for
many years. People from all
over the South have ventured up
to north Georgia to eat at this
famous restaurant.
If you haven't ever eaten
-there let me tell you a little bit
about it. The Town of Dillard
sits near the north Georgia line.
This part of Georgia is where
the mountains begin' and the
restaurant sits on a hill with a
great view.
Food at the Dillard House has
been described as true Southern
cooking which is some of the

Genlyte Thomas .sells products
under such major brand names
as Capri, Chloride Systems,
Crescent, Day-Brite, Gardco,
Hadco, Ledalite and Lightolier.
On February 17th, Genlyte
reported record annual sales of
$1.252 billion and record annual
earnings $2.99 per share. A'
year ago revenues were $1.179
billion and earnings were $2.10
per, share, after adjustment for
the May 2005 2-for-1 stock split.
First quarter numbers are due
out on April 28, 2006.
Although you will want to do
your own research, assume for
the moment that Genlyte has
a satisfactory track record and
the wherewithal to continue to
accelerate its earnings growth.
The most difficult hurdle comes
in trying to ascertain a value for
the stock at some point in the
future. A key valuation criterion
is tlie intrinsic value of the
shares. Intrinsic value is not a
price target. Rather it postulates
the underlying value of the
shares and should always exceed
the current share price.
Using a discounted earnings'
approach, uh ai initial.itrailing
twelve month earnings number
of $84.8 million, an earnings
growth rate of 16.5 percent and
a discount rate of 11 percent
(average return on the S&P
500), yields an intrinsic value
for Genlyte of $123 per share.
A more conservative
discounted free cash flow model,
with the same earnings growth
rate, produces an intrinsic value
of $113. My projected earnings
number for this fiscal year is
$3.47 per share.
If my earnings estimate is
correct, and the current multiple
or P/E ratio remains at 23, in a
year the shares should be trading
.at about $80 per share, a 14.5
percent increase over the current
price of $69.84.

and true tastes of the foods
themselves. It is simple, open
and wholesome. For the rural
Southerner like the Dillards,
cooking has always been a
direct, obvious connection to
the land. It's a daily testament
to the love of and respect for the
land. The food at the Dillard
House is prepared with
affection and it is an. expression
of hospitality to friend and guest
What I like best about the
restaurant is the fact that it's
just good Southern cooking.
Lots and lots of vegetables are
served family style. The meat is
usually fried chicken, country
ham, fried steak and they
always serve cornbread, biscuit
.and yeast rolls. The menu
changes daily depending on
what vegetables and fruits are in
I've never eaten at the Dillard
House that I didn't leave too
full to move. If you've, ever,
dined at the Dillard House I'm
sure you will agree that it's real
easy to overeat when you are
faced with a table loaded down
with wonderful dishes.
The little town of Dillard is
situated in a fertile,valley. It has

The Small Things
(Kent Heaton)

In April of 1990, the $1.6 billion Hubble Space
telescope was launched into orbit with great
anticipation. It wasdiscovered upon deployment that
something was very wrong. The problem was a few
25-cent washers that technicians used to fill in a gap
in an optical testing device had shaken loose. The
cost of the rescue mission to fix Hubble was $86
million. It is hard to believe how something so small
can cause such damage and bring about such costly
repairs. Small things matter.
James reminds us of the small fire kindled by a
loose tongue. "Now if we put the horses' bridles into
their mouths that they may obey us, we turn about
their whole body also. Behold, the ships also,
though they are so great and are driven by rough
winds, are yet turned about by a very small rudder,
whither the impulse of the steersman willeth. So the
tongue also is a little member, and boasteth great
things. Behold, how much wood is kindled by how
small a fire" (James 3:3-5). The tongue is a little
member but how much damage can be done when not
used properly. Careless words can be few but start a
conflagration of hurt and destruction.
It must also be remembered that a few words
can encourage and lift up the spirits of the
downtrodden. "A word fitly spoken is like apples of
gold in a setting of silver" (Proverbs 25:11). Paul
wrote the brethren at Thessalonica to "encourage one
another and build one another up, just as you are
doing ... encourage the fainthearted, help the weak,
be patient with them all" (1 Thessalonians 5:11-14).
This type of encouragement does not take many
words. Words fitly spoken for those who need to be
uplifted can be of such value to the work of the Lord.

Small things. take on the importance of sharing
the gospel of Christ. Jesus set the pattern in John 4
when He spoke to the woman at the well. From this
discussion with one woman, "Many Samaritans
from that city believed in him because of the
woman's testimony, 'He told me all that I ever did.'
... many more believed because of his word. They
said to the woman, "It is no longer because of your
words that we believe, for we have heard for
ourselves, and we know that this is indeed the
Savior of the world" (John 4:39-42). How many
people can tell the story of their conversion from the
small beginning of a tract, a radio program, a bulletin
article, a caring heart who helped them find the truth?
Elijah became discouraged with the work of the
Lord in 1 Kings 19 and desired the Lord to take his
life. As he sat in his despair, Jehovah comes to him
"and a great and strong wind rent the mountains,
and broke in pieces the rocks before the LORD, but
the LORD was not in the wind; and after the wind
an earthquake, bat the LORD was not in the
earthquake; and after the earthquake afire, but the
LORD was not in the fire; and after the fire a still
small voice" (1 Kings 19:11-12). The problem with
Elijah was he thought the will of Jehovah had to be
accomplished with great things (see 1 Kings 17 & 18
for examples of great deeds); he was reminded that
the will of the Lord can be accomplished with one
man if the Lord so desires.
Small things matter to God: A cup of water
(Matthew 25:31-46); little children (Matthew 18:1-6);
one soul (Luke 9:25); one sheep, one coin, one boy
(Luke 15). You (John 3:16).

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, April 20th, at the
Levy County Quilt Museum.
Another busy day with quilting
and whatever. Karen Arendell
has finished her first two learn-
ing projects and today she quilt-
ed on one of the big quilts. She
started with pillow covers, then
went to a small baby quilt. She
is now ready to get on to quilting
on a frame. Her work is great
',and she has really come a long
way. She drives from Live Oak
and comes as often as she can.
We have had the lumber and
what we need to build a gazebo
in the front yard. We had money
donated in memory and we de-
cided what we would do. We
have lots of plans and had to de-
cide where it would go and now
to get it built. Ken Skelton will
be doing the work with the help
from inmates at Lancaster. It
reminds me of when we started
the museum, not really knowing
what to do but we all learned as
we went along. Come by and
visit to see how it will be done.
Greg and five boys were out
Tuesday to do all the great things
they do. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was so good with
sweet and sour hot dogs, onion
casserole, cheese and mac, lots
more with strawberry dessert
and more.
We had 22 present.

found his purpose: Jesus
Dwight was discipled
under the Student Ministry of First Baptist
Church/Orlando, where he was called to full time
ministry. As a fulltime Evangelist, Dwight finds his
spiritual encouragement from brothers and sisters at
Aloma Baptist Church, Winter Park, FL.
God has gifted him with a heart and vision for the
church. Dwight preaches "Jesus" from a heart broken
for a society virtually untouched by radical Christian-
ity. His message is clear, Jesus is the only way! He
boldly challenges the church to follow New Testa-
ment Christianity."

American Legion Auxiliary Unit 91 Secretary, Theresa Calloway,
has said she could wait one more week for items to be donated for the
Shin Vari Orphanage, to allow some of the other Legion Posts in the
District to help out. She was able to speak about the Orphanage at last
'Saturday's Fourth District Picnic at Post 16 in Gainesville. Supplies
needed are: clothing, child's size 3 through man's size 3; underclothes,
socks, shirts, shorts and pants Shoes needed are size 5 through 11.
Linens: sheets, blankets, towels and washcloths are needed too, along
with hygiene articles like toothpaste, toothbrushes, combs, hair brushes
and cleaning wipes. They also need school supplies such as: paper,
pencils, crayons, coloring materials, etc. Toys, but no war-oriented toys
such as guns and knives. If you wish to help the Post 91 Family in this
Donation Drive, a collection point has been set up at the Gilchrist County
Veteran Service Office, 105 NE 1st Street, in Trenton. If you can help this
effort, please contact Major Stroupe or one of the "Post 91 Family", that
is a Post 91 Legionnaire or Auxiliary Unit 91 member. If you have
clothing items or even better, money to help buy these items, take it by
the Post tonight or drop it off with Major Stroupe in the Veteran Services
Office by the courthouse ini Trenton. This is one of the POSITIVE ways
America can show the care and concern for the youth and peoples of
Afghanistan. Please donate today.
Trenton's Post 91 is planning to host a Flea Market/Yard Sale at the
Post home Saturday, May 13. If you are interested in being a vendor and
selling some of your surplus, contact Post Commander Shelby McKinney
for more details. If you have items to donate for the Flea Market/Yard
Sale, again, contact the Post Commander. The Post and Auxiliary will
also have a booth at the Chiefland Flea Market on May 6 as well, so if
you have items to donate for that Post fund raiser, again, contact Post
Commander Shelby McKinney or the Auxiliary Unit President, Anne
McKinney for more information.
Post 91 has achieved 100 per cent in membership, but don't stop telling
others about the Legion. There are so many veterans out there that have
never even been asked to join, so keep on recruiting for the American
Legion. Grab a handful of the brochures at the post to hand to someone
that is interested. It has information about our programs and plans.
Continue to pray for our Armed Forces all around the world as well as
those here at home. Watch over our Legion Family, helping out whenever
and however we can.

Car Seat Safety For
Helpful Tips & Advice For
The widespread use of
children's car seats has reduced
the number of injuries and fa-
talities on American roads, but
a -national insurance program
for educators says more needs
to be done.
"Every state requires that
children under the age of 4 are
secured while riding in a car,"
noted Ray Palermo, director of
public information for Teachers'
Insurance Plan. "Yet despite the
laws and warnings, car crashes
are still the single largest cause
of death among children under.
the age of 14." It is estimated
that half of the approximately
1,500 fatalities each year could
be prevented with the proper use
of a child car seat.
Although State laws vary and
parents should check to ensure
they are complying with all local
regulations, Teachers' Insurance
Plan offers these general guide-
lines for parents to help ensure
their child is safe and secure.
The best way to get children
in the 'habit of using. safety
restraints is to learn from their
parent's example. The driver, all
adult passengers and all infants
V and children should be safely se-
cured before starting the engine.
Infants from birth to one-
year-old and under 20 pounds
in weight should be secured in
an infant car safety seat on the
back seat of the vehicle, fac-
ing the rear. This avoids injury
from an inflated airbag and will
be less of a distraction for the
driver. If your vehicle does not
have a back seat, deactivate the
airbag for that trip, but be sure to
reactivate it when an adult is the
Infants from birth to one year
and more than 20 pounds should
be either secured in a convert-
ible safety seat or in an infant
seat approved for their weight.
The seats should be secured on
the back seat of the vehicle, fac-
ing the rear.
Children' older than one year
who weigh 20 to 40 pounds
should be secured in a child
safety seat on the back seat of
' the vehicle, facing forward.
Children who have outgrown
their child safety seat,., but are
still too small (less than 4'9") to
use the standard adult safety belt
in the car, should use a booster
seat. The lap belt should sit
across the hips and the shoulder
belt should not cross the neck or

Catherine Vega, PA-C

By Deborah Douglas
Growing up...Can you re-
member those days? I can and
as I climb the ladder to the better
years in my life, my childhood
memories become more poi-
gnant to me. It was oftentimes
said to me during those younger
years that if I took care of the
small things, then the bigger
things would ultimately take
care of themselves. And caring
about others...that continues to
be the foundation for what is
important today.
Mentoring and caring about
others is also what Tammy Da-
vis is about as well. In February
she was recognized for her dedi-
cation and support to the Take
Stock In Children scholarship
program as Mentor of the Year.
And as a veteran mentor, Tammy
can honestly share her moments
of ups and downs...but the bot-
tom line would be the long term
relationships this program has
afforded her.
She currently mentors a tenth
grader, Ashley Lipiec who as
Ms. Davis has commented, "The
relationship goes both ways. I
get just as much if not more out
of our time together," which is
evident in a poem Ashley wrote
of her relationship with Tammy.
I used to be alone
Sitting on my bed
Staring out the window
No one to talk to.
Now I've come out
Out of my shell.
I'm not alone
I can laugh
I'm not alone
I can talk to you.
Making a differencez..being a
part of something. That is what I
am looking for. If you have time

John Ferguson and Gene O'Steen are shown enjoying the
refreshments at Gilchrist Title Services' open house and
Chamber Mixer.

Gilchrist Title Services Holds

Open House

Gilchrist Title Servi6es held
an open house and Chamber of
Commerce Mixer on Monday,
April 24th, from 5:00 p.m. until
7:00 p.m. The event provided
most people with their first
glimpse of the newly revitalized
landmark building.
The historical building at 302
N. Main Street was constructed
in 1912, and later served as the
'location for both the Farmers
and Merchants Bank of Trenton
and, most recently, Tri-County
Bank. ,
Two long-time business
residents of the building, John
Ferguson and Gene Osteen, at-
tended the open house.
"From what I understand, it
started with a bank on one side
and a dry-goods store on the
other," says Mr. Osteen, who
worked in the building from
1965 to 1976 with Farmers and
Merchants Bank of Trenton. "At
one time, the Masonic Lodge
held meetings in the upstairs
"As far as I can remember, it's
never been vacant for more than
a year," he adds.
Now, the golden oak floors,
deep brgundi ,ctkrtainis, 'a1d -
framed historical documents

* invoke thoughts of the history of
our country, and the importance
of work conducted in buildings
like this to our freedom and
"We're honored to follow the
tradition of successful business-
es in this location," says Doug
McKoy, owner of Gilchrist Title
Services. "We intend to continue
tohelp people achieve their per-
sonal and financial goals, while
also helping maintain the vital-
ity of this wonderful downtown
Gilchrist Title Services pro-
vides land title insurance and
real estate closings. The busi-
ness employs eight people.

ilr C r-,af

Maxine Hale...the proud winner of our "Ladies Night Out"
;: quilt that won third place in the group quilting category at
::the state fair.


When it comes to. weather I
guess we're just never satisfied.
Now, I know I was one of the
first to complain when it was
280 just a few weeks back so I'll
go on record as being one of the
first to complain about 960 on
my porch in May. Quite frankly,
I don't care if it never gets over
75 or 80. I mean really...when
the birds are fanning themselves
while waiting for the squirrels to
eat their fill...it's HOT. I heard
tell that hens are laying hard
boiled eggs, now that is hot.
Anyway, praise the Lord for the
blessed rain. It didn't cool things
off much but it sure gave the
countryside a much needed bath.
Hey, did you know things grow-
ing alongside our dirt roads are
really green not that sandy grey?
All they needed was a shower.
You just can't beat the smell
of fresh falling rain and wet
earth. Makes you want to kick
off your shoes and run outside
and play in it like you did when
you were a kid. I remember
sitting in a wash tub hoping it
would rain long enough to fill it
up. Of course, it never did. We
%% would turn on the hose to help it
along Kids don't play in the rain
anymore and it seems a shame.
I used to love to feel the mud
squeeze up between my toes.
Kids don't do that anymore ei-
ther. Next time it rains, I'm go-
ing out to play in it before I get
too old to have such fun.
But on Wednesday, April 19th,
there was no rain in sight, even
though some folks around and
about had a good one and a half
inches the evening before. Only
20 Joyful Hearts were able to
make it...maybe too many choc-
olate bunnies and jelly beans.
I do know that Barbara Strom
was out because hubby, David,,
fell and broke his hip. He was
operated on and from what I hear
is doing well. Also, Lu Row-
land's daughter called Jackie
Moore to say she was taking her
to the hospital. Since then she's
been doi'iig ic'el: niiid _houId be
home by the time you read this.
We are keeping both of them in
our thoughts and prayers.
We have two quilts in frames.
One is going to be tied and Elaine
was busy doing just that. Ann
Mangone, Pat Luka and Evelyn

Gilclris t B uI ding Supp.. ly, Inc.

Wood were just as busy quilting
on the other one on a frame. Al-
berta Swanner came late because
she forgot it was Wednesday and
we were glad she remembered.
She took her place in the "Amen
Corner" where Paulene Martin
was either knitting or crochet-
ing a baby hat. She must have
finished George's. Ann Taylor
was part of that group but I don't
have any idea of what she was
doing besides having fun.
Leona Wirta, Ruth Wilkerson
and Lera Townsend were all
crocheting. Leona's making
slippers for a friend; Ruth an
afghan; and Lera, who's' just
learning, is making a scarf for
her son who lives in Michigan.
Myrle Gilkey was. knitting or
crocheting something out of that
brown furry yam. I kept telling
her it looked like she was mak-
ing a rat. I know crocheting is
one needle and knitting is two,
but sometimes I forget to write
down who's doing what, which
accounts for me sounding dumb,
crazy and/or stupid.
The Swedish weavers were
doing just that...Swedish weav-
ing; Mary Lou Ryder, Cathy
Strom, Jackie Moore, Heidi
Kamp, and Alice Binns. Heidi
has sold her house, praise the
Lord, and will be moving into
Lake City. She promises to keep
coming to our meetings and
we're going to hold her to it.
Marvine Deer worked on her
lap quilt block and Diana Lynn
helped me get my April block
pieces cut and then helped Mar-
vine. Poor thing, I'm not sure
what, if anything, she got done
on her's. Rita Simcoe was busy
trying to match up yam and I
believe finally got it straightened
Before you knew it, the clock
on the wall said...time to eat.
We put away our projects, got.
in a circle and Elaine said grace.
Some brought lunch but most ate
salad, spaghetti and meatballs,
garlic bread and ice tea or lem-
onade for a $1 donation to the
fire department.
Lera is the only April birthday
and poor thing, her cake was a
disaster. Oh, it was tasty but
the icing wouldn't get hard, the
weather was hot and humid and
the dirt road was like a wash
board. So, guess what hap-
pened?; Right...the top.layer-slid.
off and the icing ran in puddles
down the sides and made a
pool of goo on the plate. Well,
Lera...I owe you one, but Happy
Birthday and many, many more
to come.
It was time to clean up, pack
up and head for home or errands.
We said our good-byes, gave out
hugs and wished each other well.
It's always a good feeling hav-
ing spent a few hours with such
warm and caring friends...how
blessed we are.
And here's a little tip...always
sign and date your quilt even if
it's a group effort. Always use a
permanent fine line pen or use a
pencil and embroider it. You can
make it as plain or as fancy as
you please. You could also sew
a signature panel made of plain
cotton fabric onto the quilt. If
possible, write a short history
about the quilt and keep it in a
special notebook so those your
quilts are passed on to will have
the story behind the love and
work you put into its creation.
Our next regular meeting
will be on Wednesday, May
3rd. Hope to see you all in your
places with sun shiny faces, so to

speak. til then, keep praying for
rain and remember "Blessed is
the man who trusts in the Lord,
and whose hope is in the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted
by the waters." Jeremiah 17:7
and 8.
"Til next time,
A Joyful Heart,
Marilyn Runde

to personal and public education
about autism. ,
The goal of the walk says
Elliott, is to capture public at-
tention and build a foundation
for fund raising. According to
the, National Institute of Neu-
rological Disorders and-,Stroke,
(NINDS) autism is one of sev-
eral "spectrum developmental
disorders" characterized by
three distinguishing behaviors
including difficulties with social
interaction, problems with ver-
bal and non-verbal communica-
tion, and repetitive behaviors
or narrow, obsessive interests.
The New England Center for
Children (NECC) reports that
autism is more common than
multiple sclerosis, cystic fibrosis
or childhood cancer and costs
society about 90 billion dollars
annually. An estimated 90% of
those costs are spent in adult ser-
vices. The NECC projects that
the cost of lifelong care could be
reduced by two-thirds with early
diagnosis and intervention. "I
think people would be shocked
to know that autism affects 1
out of 166 births," Elliott says.
"More research is vital since the
disorder has no known cause or
cure. The numbers of children
diagnosed with autism continues
to increase at almost epidemic
According to the Autism Soci-
ety of America, the rate of diag-
nosis of autism is experiencing a
10 to 17% growth. A growth
comparison published by the
U.S. Department of Education
states that during the 1990s the
population increased by 13%,
all other disabilities increased
by 16%, and autism saw an
increase of 172%.
Elliott says she is concerned
that while autism has a growing
impact on families, schools and
communities, public awareness
and dollars for research lag
behind other, less prevalent but
better known health issues.
"My experience tells me
that many of our teachers lack ,
training, tools and support for
dealing effectively with the
increasing numbers of children
who pass through their class-
rooms," Elliott says. "Early
intervention can make a world
of difference in the outcome for
a child diagnosed with any of
the spectrum disorders."
Elliott states that her goal
is "an annual event here in
Newberry which mushrooms to
other communities, building a
strong foundation of awareness
and funding for research."
For information about the
walk, including opportunities
for volunteers or to donate
funds or services, contact Caro-
lyn Elliot at 352-472-4335.

'on, requirement of disclosure.
4 A Seller will fill out a form
on, known as a "Sellers Real Property
0 Disclosure". This form is kept in
the office of their Realtor, and is
given to prospective Buyers when
requested, or once a contract is
This disclosure goes over
everything from where the
mailbox is located, to actual
issues with the home, such as roof
leaks, plumbing leaks, electrical
issues, and anything that the
Seller has knowledge of that will
affect the value of the Property.
The Realtor also must inspect
Nn, the property and point out items
they notice which may affect the
Fed value of the Property. In addition,
218 when, a realtor has knowledge of

changes in the area, they must
notify both parties as these
changes may have an effect on the
property's value.
There may be items that the
Seller and the Realtor have no
knowledge of.. I always
recommend buyers to have a
professional Home Inspection
performed. The Home Inspector
will go through every nook and
cranny in a home to find defects.

,I also serve on the Levy County
'District Math Curriculum Imple-
4ientation Committee. I was
'elected by my fellow employees
.and proudly represent Bronson
Elementary School as the 2006
;Teacher of the Year. On a more
'personal note, I am a member
opf the Chiefland (Tri-County)
cancer r Relay for Life Executive
One of my greatest accom-
plishments has been to recently
achieve National Board Certifi-
:cation. National Board Certifi-
cation is the highest credential
-in the teaching profession. It
'Is a voluntary, rigorous pro-
,.cess, which typically takes one
to three years to complete and
requires teachers to demonstrate
-ihow their activities, both inside
,and outside of the classroom,
improve student achievement.
SNationwide, less than two per-
:,ent of teachers have achieved
National Board Certification. I
am currently mentoring local
'teachers in several counties who
are working toward National
.Board Certification, thereby
*helping to promote high-quality
.-teaching and increased student
achievement in North Central
Florida Schools.
I have always had a reputation

for giving 110 percent of myself
to helping my students achieve
even more than they believe
they are capable of. Parents
appreciate my open-communi-
cation policy and willingness to
be an advocate for their children,
not only in the classroom, but
in all aspects of their lives. I
diligently follow all issues deal-
ing with education and am often
sought out by others who seek
my knowledge and advice relat-
ing to these issues. I feel it is
important to keep up on current
events as they pertain to educa-
tion. I plan to apply these same
skills and knowledge to make the
best decisions for all involved in
the education of our children. I
hope you will consider my quali-
fications and dedication when
making your selection for school
board members in the coming
elections. Please feel free to
contact me with your questions,
concerns or comments.

The FWC Report For
April 14-20
This report represents some
significant events the FWC
handled over the past week;
however, it does not include all
actions taken by the Division of
Law Enforcement.
April 14, at approximately
9:30 p.m., Investigator Larry Ay-
ers was working in the vicinity
of CR 232 when he observed a
pickup truck operating in a sus-
picious manner. Ayers observed
the vehicle first traveling slowly
down the road, then increase his
speed down the road in the op-
posite direction and run a stop
sign: Ayers stopped the vehicle
for the driving violations. Upon
approaching the vehicle, Ayers
could smell the odor of mari-
juana coming from the vehicle.
After a search of the vehicle,
,Ayers located a bag of suspected'
marijuana in a diaper bag under
the seat. Ayers charged the Cross
City resident with possession of
marijuana less than 20 grams.

dividual who had been involved
with a burglary on Wednesday,
and gave him a description of the
suspect. The High Springs PD
had pursued the suspect on-foot
in the High Springs area, but had
lost him near the river. The de-
scription matched that of a man
Summers had encountered the
day before. Summers was able
to give the High Springs officer
the suspect's name, date of birth,
and all pertinent information.
With this information, High
Springs PD issued a Be On the
Look Out (BOLO) for the man.
Later in the morning, Summers
again found the suspect in a ca-
noe on the Santa Fe River, took
him into custody and delivered
him to the High Springs PD.
With the help of Officer Brett
Gill, Summers secured the canoe
and equipment and delivered the
property to HSPD as well. The
canoe had been stolen from
River Rise Resort, in Columbia
County, some time Tuesday or
Wednesday. Columbia, County
Sheriff's Office will file charges,
related to the canoe theft.
While off duty, Officer Todd
Hoyle was monitoring "Hunting
Chat Room" sites on his com-,
puter, when he came across a
turkey hunter's story, along with
photos, of his first gobbler taken
in Columbia County. The next
day, back on duty, Hoyleran
the man's name thru dispatch
to ensure the man had a license
and turkey stamp. As it turned
out, the man did not have either.
Hoyle made contact with the

man at his home and showed
him the photos of his first turkey
and asked to see his license and
stamp. After the man admit-
ted he did not have a license
or stamp, he was cited for the
April 19, Officer Randall
Brooks and Reserve Captain Bill
Sargent were patrolling Mont-
gomery Lake Fish Management
Area when they encountered
a man fishing. Upon a license
check, it was learned that he
had a current saltwater fishing
license, but no freshwater li-
cense. The computer check also
revealed that the man had two
active warrants for his arrest.

April 11, Officer Harold Barry
was conducting boating safety
inspections at approximately 9
p.m. and a vessel docked at the
ramp. After Barry approached
and engaged in conversation
with the operator, he noticed
the man's speech was slurred,
in addition to other indications
of possible intoxication. Barry
then -conducted field sobriety
tests, which the operator un-
successfully completed. The
60-year-old Middleburg man
was placed under arrest for
boating under the influence and
transported to the Clay County
Sheriff's Office. The subject
submitted to a breath test result-
ing in a .114 and .113 BAC.
