Two Plant City Residents Are Injured When

Their Boat Strikes A Bridge Piling
Boat Veered To Miss A Jumping Sturgeon


Absconded Sexual Offender,

George Teague Is Apprehended

In Trenton


Two Plant City residents were
injured in a boating accident
Thursday when their vessel
struck a piling of an old train
trestle on the Suwannee River
near Old Town.
Jesse Lee Carr, 51, and his
passenger, Brenda Carr, 51,
who suffered serious injuries,
were taken to Shands Hospital in
Gainesville for treatment.
According to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) investigators, the
vessel was traveling south at
approximately 40 mph at 12:30
p.m. when Jesse Lee Carr saw a


large fish (possibly a sturgeon)
jump in front of the vessel and
attempted to steer clear. The
fish did not strike the boat or the
Carrs.
The vessel's bow struck the
round center concrete support
piling of a trestle bridge that
spans the Suwannee and is part
of the Nature Coast State Trail.
Upon impact, Brenda Carr was
ejected from the vessel while
Jesse Carr was thrown forward
to the port side, investigators
said.
The vessel continued forward,
turned sharply to the right and


traveled to the southwest bank
where it left the water and came
to rest on the high river bank,
completely out of the water.
Two pedestrians on the bridge
at the time of the accident went
to help the Carrs. A nearby ho-
meowner heard the accident and
called 911.
One of the pedestrians, Frank
Brian Evans, swam out to help
Brenda Carr who was floating
face down and unconscious. He
took her back to shore. Dixie
Emergency Medical Services ar-
rived and transported the Carrs to
the helicopter pad in Old Town.


The Carrs were then flown to the
Gainesville hospital, investiga-
tors said.
The vessel was recovered and
stored at the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office in Trenton. The
accident remains under investi-
gation by FWC officers.
The FWC recently placed
signs all along the Suwannee
River warning boaters that stur-
geon do jump and boaters have
been seriously injured. Officials
recommend slowing down while
traveling on the Suwannee to in-
crease reaction time and reduce
the risk of impacts.

Gilchrist County Voter Turnout

45.8% Is Third Highest In

Florida


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Judging by Gilchrist County
standards 45.8% is not all that
high of a voter turnout. In 2002
48.6% of voters in the county
turned out to vote in the primary
election. The 2002 election was
the off year election so the
percentage is a good compar-
ison. The county's -voting
percentage of 45.8 was enough
to place the county third in the
entire state for voter turnout

ner) Paige Norton-Aronowicz and Ben Coppage.


icz from Trenton, Florida; she
is in the 12th grade at Bell High

This is the ninth year we have


sponsored this contest, and we
are hoping for more and more
applicants in the future.


A special THANKS for every-
one who helped with this year's
contest.


Bell Blanks First Academy of Leesburg


The Bell Bulldogs shut out

Lee Carlisle scored four
touchdowns enroute to a 40-0
victory.
The Bulldogs scored early as
Lee Carlisle ran 6 yards with
9:20 remaining in the first
quarter for the touchdown.
Devin Taylor added an extra
point kick to give the host a 7-0
lead.
In the opening minutes of
the second quarter, Carlisle

yard run for a touchdown.
Taylor kicked an extra point to
increase the Bulldogs lead to
14-0. With 5:25-remaining in
the first half, Carlisle scored on
a 15 yard run. Bell's William
Joiner jumped into the scoring
excitement as he ran 11 yards in
the closing minutes of the first
half to give the Bulldogs a 26-0
edge.
In the second half the two
head coaches got together to
determine that they would play
by a running clock in the final
half.
Carlisle got the Bulldogs
offense back into the scoring
mode as the running back
completed a drive with a 1-yard
touchdown run. Taylor added
the extra point kick. With :29
seconds remaining in the third

Margaret Mills Exemplifies

Responsibility As Character

Council Selection


Margaret Mills, such a de-
lightful and quiet person and
one who truly exemplifies the
character quality of responsi-
blity. Mrs. Mills certainly has
an innate understanding of the
meaning of responsibility, which
is "knowing and doing what is
expected of me."
The Character Council person-
ality of the month for September
is married to Greg Mills and
they are proud parents of three
grown children, two sons and
a daughter, and have two pre-
cious grandchildren. Mrs. Mills
was raised in Ft. White, but in
1970 moved with her parents
and siblings to Trenton. Since
1988 she has been employed at
Ayers Health and Rehab Center.
Her present position there is
Supervisor of Housekeeping and
Laundry.
Mrs. Mills shared with this
writer that credit needs to be
given to her parents for when
and how she learned the need to
be responsible. Animals on the
small family farm surrounded
her, and, of course, animals
need care. The crops provided
chores, which included grinding
corn and boiling peanuts and
bagging them to sell for school
lunch money. There was also
the gathering of eggs, even when


Character
Connection
By: Geneva Cornwell
Responsibility is something
which ls very much lacking in
our present day era. Responsibil-
ity asserts the attitude of "know-
ing and doing what is expected
of me," while the opposite is
being unreliable. Responsibility
is usually a trained quality from
childhood. Responsibility is so
needed in each individual's life,


Margaret Mills


fear struck at being pecked by
a laying hen. There were the
rabbits, dogs, cats and the one
horse, which all needed atten-
tion. Also, with all the watering
and weeding that the garden
needed, learning responsibility,
as a family team, was the key
element.
Margaret proclaims that her
parents taught her lasting val-
ues. She remembers especially,
a saying of her Dad's which
was "Many hands make less
work." She relates that she still
feels inadequate at times, but
remembers from her upbringing
that "trying" is the key to learn-


every day.
Following are a few defini-
tions of responsibility: first, the
condition of being accountable
for a person, duty, office, or
debt; second, capability to make
rational, moral decisions; third,
ability to be trusted; fourth, that
for which one is responsible.
The English word responsible
comes from two Latin roots:
responum, which means "an
answer, a reply;" and spondere,
meaning, "to promise." Thu,


ing something well. She would
like to say to others, "Whatever
you are doing try to do your best.
Take ownership of failures and
keep going, because responsibil-
ity is something you work at ev-
ery day. It's your choice to do
a good job or not; to be prepared
or not; to care or not."
Mrs. Mills' advice to oth-
ers: "When there are times that
you're unsure about something,
simply do the right thing," for
doing the right thing brings

satisfaction even though it may
"not be the easiest way out."
This marvelously humble,
southern lady is so thankful
for the encouragement she has
received over the years from fel-
low Ayers Center staff members
as well as from her own family,
for trying to do her best in what-
ever she undertakes. She is so
grateful for the many wonderful
people who have influenced her
life and taught her the reward
of being a responsible person.
She considers herself fortunate
to work at Ayers Center in serv-
ing the Community in which she
lives.
So, here we have another
remarkable citizen of Gilchrist
who continually proves to others
that our County "is a County of
character because it cares."


the concept behind responsi-
bility is making a promised
response.
Responsible individuals gain
trust and earn greater respon-
sibilities when they keep their
promises. Gaining a responsible
reputation is profitable to a busi-
ness, a student, or a-teacher as is
financial success or academic
achievement.
Individuals acquire many re-

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Friday of last week I had
some work that needed to be
done at Suwannee so Mark
Schuler and I planned to get
some work done and possibly
catch a few fish later in the day.'
I am still trying to become
stable on the front of the airboat
with a cast net in my hands as I
look for mullet in the shallows.
On Friday the tide was forecast
to be low around 4:00 p.m., so I
thought we might try to fish
sometime after lunch. As the
tide was beginning to run out
quickly, we jumped on the
airboat and went to look for
mullet in skinny (shallow)
water.
I had an idea we would
eventually make it out to the
oyster bar just off of the
Suwannee coastline to do some
hook and line fishing for
redfish, but I didn't have any
idea that the mullet would be as
plentiful as they were.
The vast numbers of mullet
we encountered reminded me of
the mid '70s when I fished with
Cindy Jo's father on his birddog
net boat around Cedar Key. A


birddog boat is a flat- bottom
design boat with manual
steering in the front portion of
the boat that will run in very
shallow water. This style boat
narrows in depth as you go
toward the rear where a flat 4 to
6 foot area at the back of the
boat which was originally
designed to hold a gill net.
In those days when I fished
with Mr. Lloyd, he would give
me the weighted line that I
would .throw out on his
command once we got into an
area where he wanted to make a
strike on some fish. When I
would throw the weighted line
out, it:was tied to the lead line
that would string out the net that
was designed to catch the fish.
The Captain would usually
make a circle around the fish
with the boat and then
sometimes run around inside the
circle to get the fish to hit the
net. In those days there would
be what looked like acres of fish
flipping their tails and breaking
the top of the shallow water.
On Friday afternoon as I
slowed the boat to look closely
around the ;hallo\w bay, the
amount of fish We saw was just
unbelievable. It seemed like
whether you looked to the
south, west, or north there were

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd

Whenever I mention that I
write about investing on Wall
Street, the response is not only
predictable but can be divided
into two distinct categories. The
first is, "Wonderful, do you have
any hot tips on the market?"
My response used to be to try
and educate these misguided
souls and point them in the di-
rection of a long-term high qual-
ity investment strategy, thereby
leaving the hot tip emporium to-
the horse racing crowd. Howev-
er, to utilize an equine metaphor,
you can lead a horse to water
but you cannot make him drink.'
Therefore, over time I have
learned to shorten my response
to a single word, no.
So what is the other category
of response, you ask. It must be
questions from those individuals
with a keen investment sense-
who are interested in uncover-
ing new potential research can-
didates for their portfolios, you
say. Alas, a utopian answer but a.
wrong one.
The second category of in-
dividuals look at me askance,
their faces blanching as they.put
forth a diatribe on how nobody
makes money on Wall Street and
how whenever they have taken
somebody's investment advice


plenty of fish.
I headed the boat to a small
sandy shallow area that went out
to a point into deeper water. The
fish appeared to be feeding on
top of the water. As we drove
up to them, I expected the fish
to go to the bottom, but the
water was so shallow, the fish
had no place to go.'" Mark there %
the net and as soon as it hit the
water, the fish began to appear
and boil in the net as Mark
pulled in his brail lines. When
he got the net full of fish in the
boat, I shut the boat off and
began to count and pickup the
mullet while putting them in the
ice chest. On the first cast Mark
caught 28. By. the time he had
made three casts, he had caught
50 mullet and we had them on
ice.
Our. fishing trip might have
lasted 15 minutes. As I got the
airboat up on a plane and
headed back to camp, I looked
to the left and saw six porpoises
headed into the shallows after
the mullet. The wakes from
these large mammals make it
appear like an entire school of
dolphin were converging on the
mullet.
It is not often that you go
fishing for 15 minutes and catch
50 fish. It was a great day to be
on the water.


But I Have Not Left The Lord
(Kent Heaton)


The president of the'company calls an employee
into the office to inform him that his employment has
been terminated. Upon receiving the.news of his-
dismissal, the employee questions the reason for his
being .released. Pulling out time sheets for the
employee, the president shows that he has missed
weeks of work with no accountability. "But I have
not left the company, sir," the employee replies. "I
have been busy with ballgames, school, working in
the yard and other things that have kept me from
coming into work. Besides, I still believe in the
company and I believe in what you are doing for the
company. I am still a company man. In addition,
could you please make certain that my paycheck is
mailed and my retirement plan is filled? It does not
look like I will be able to come into work so keep
those things coming, please. When I get things
worked out, I will be back at my desk."
The preceding example is an illustration of how
some people feel about their service to the Lord..No
company of worth would continue to keep a person
who had the kind of attitude expressed by the above
story. It would be nice to work for a company that
would allow one to come to work when it was
convenient for them and still receive all the benefits
and privileges of the company. Yet, men feel they can
abandon the work of the Lord and still be in a
covenant relationship with God. They expect the
Lord to bless them without any obligation on their"
part.
Jehovah has always required devotion from his
followers. He expects man to obey His will. The
cause of sin in the world was when Adam and Eve
disregarded the will of God in the garden (Genesis 3).
Noah could not shirk his responsibility in building the


ark (Genesis 6). Nadab and Abihu decided to be
cavalier about their duties to'the Lord in Leviticus 10
and were killed by God with fire. Uzzah lost his life
because he disobeyed the will of God (2 Samuel 6).
Jesus declared that only those who do the will of the
Father will be saved (Matthew 7:21-23).
If someone neglects the commands of God, does
he still love God? If a person physically absents
himself from the duties of the Lord, is he still in a
loving relationship with the Lord? If a man leaves his
wife for six weeks returning with no explanation is
there love in this relationship? Often people delude
themselves into believing they still love the Lord and
yet fail to do His will. Jesus said: "If anyone loves
Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love
him, and We will come to him and make Our abode
with him. He who does not love Me does not keep
My words; and the word which you hear is not
Mine, but the Father's who sent Me" (John
14:23-24).
Our service to God is not on our terms. Bearing a
cross is not something that we can put down and take
up whenever we choose. Too many people serve God
as long as it is convenient to them. The cross Jesus
bore was not convenient nor was it something He
could put down because it interfered with His life.
HE BORE HIS CROSS ALL THE WAY TO
GOLGOTHA. "If you keep My commandments, you
will abide in My love; just as I have kept My
Father's commandments and abide in His love"
(John 15:10).
How dare we mock the cross of Jesus by
pretending we can serve Him on our feeble excuses
and say we love God? REPENT!

they blindly follow the advice
of someone who is often a total
stranger and is hawking an in-

In doing so, they pass up repu-

Moreover, they can -invest in

of the company then perhaps a

investment.
Through .2005, GE has in-
creased its earnings for 30 con-
secutive years. Yes, the share
price is down almost 10 percent
since late 2004. However, since
Jeff Immelt took over in 2001,
he has focused on more prom-
ising businesses. This year's
projected revenue is 50 percent
higher than the 2001 revenue
figure of $108 billion.
The consensus on Wall Street
is that Immelt's efforts will pay
off with double-digit earnings
growth. In addition, GE offers
a 2.9 percent dividend yield.
By way of comparison, a 5-
year Treasury note yields about
4.7 percent. Now ask yourself,
which do you think will gener-
ate a higher return at the end of
5 years, a Treasury-note or GE
stock?

Drop by tablespoon full in hot

these patties while they are hot.
Note.i Mrs. White's recipe
called for the patties to be
dropped by the teaspoon full.
While making the recipe I
thought we might like them a


little bigger so 1 used a
tablespoon and kind of flattened
them a little with the top of the
spoon after they were dropped
in the oil. After flattening they
looked a little more like a patty.

GOLD STAR MOTHERS DAY, SEPTEMBER, 24,,2006
Last Friday evening, Legionnaires from Post 91 along with numerous
other area folks, honored our Nation's POW/MIA from all wars in a
service just before the Bell High School football team took the field to
play. The Bell High School JROTC first year cadets' Honor GuardTeam
brought the National Colors on the field for the tribute to the POW/MIA
and for the National Anthem before the game started. Along with the
National ensign, the Honor Guard carried the Florida State flag and the
POW/MIA flag. The American Legion and American Legion Post 91
thanks the Bell High School JROTC and the Bell High School Band as
well as the Bell High School, for hosting this program to remember and
honor our Nation's POW/MIA on the National POW/MIA Recognition
Day, September 15, 2006.
Jamerson Sheffield Post 91 of the American Legion meets tonight at
7:00 for the regular monthly meeting in the Post Home on US-129 -five
miles north of Trenton near the FFA Arena on walker'ss Curve. The
donation dinner tonight will be lasagna and will begin 1t 5 30 PM. Come
out to eat dinner and stay for the meeting. Even if you don't stay for the
meeting, come out:to eat and help the Post with this fund-raiser. Be
e'.rar-helpfil and BRING A FRIEND! . ,
On SariJrday. September 23, beginning at io i11) AM, the Children and
Youth Day will be open. Food, fun and games are the plan of the day for
children in this area. You need not be a member of the Legion to
participate, so' load up the kids and come on out. Prizes will be awarded
in all age groups. Support your local American Legion Post and help with
raising funds for the Legion's community and veteran programs.
The Gilchrist County Historical Society and other groups in the area
are planning a Veterans Day Parade in Trenton on Friday, November 10,
2006. Plan to be involved with this parade in some way. All Veteran
Service Organizations are invited to, be involved in planning or
participation in the parade. For more information, contact the Gilchrist
County Historical Society. Let's make this a parade to be proud of.
If you are looking for a place to hold a meeting, seminar, anniversary
party or what have you, think of your local American Legion Posts. The
facilities there may well fit your'needs and the funds will help your local
Posts. There is always ample parking and the meeting spaces are roomy,
so if the Post Homes fit the bill for your needs, contact your local Posts
for more information. As always; Support Your Local American Legion.
It will pay off in the long run.
Saturday, October 14, Post 91 will host a "Nifty Fifties Sock Hop".
Dig in' the back of your closets for the old clothes you never really threw
out, and if they still fit, clean them up and make plans to Join Post 91 for
an old-fashioned Sock'Hop at the Post Home. More information on this
as time goes by.
There are some in our Legion'Family that are in need of prayer and
moral support due to illness or other problems. Continue to support them,
and if you know of other veterans in need, continue to let the Post
Chaplains know so they can pass the word to the proper people at the Post
level that might be able to help.
Remember our Armed Forces all over this world in your thoughts and
prayers every day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans and widows, as well as the families of those in service to
America, helping out whenever and however you can. Sometimes just a
call or a visit is a good morale raiser, so get out and visit in person, by
phone or e-mail. Just do it.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,
American Legion Post 149

Remember Our
Troops
For those who believe, prayer
is a powerful weapon. It not
only does something for the
pray-er, but also it can increase
the faith of those who are being
prayed for, especially those who
are in harm's way and protecting
our freedoms which we some-
times take for granted here in the
United States of America.
We all should be consistent
in our prayers for those of our
county who are serving in the
Armed Forces. The following
is a known list of those who are
on active duty, and who either
have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives
here in Gilchrist County. (If you

September 29th
Deadline To Apply
For 2005 Hurricane
Assistance
September 6, 2006 Farm-
ers and ranchers have until
September 29, 2006, to apply
for four 2005 hurricane disaster
programs, announced Kevin L.
Kelley, State Executive Direc-
tor of the USDA's Farm Service
Agency (FSA) in Florida.
Sign-up began on May 17th
for the four programs, which
provide aid to producers who
suffered losses due to the de-
structive hurricanes of 2005.
"We are doing everything
we can at FSA to help farmers
recover from the devastation
brought by last year's hur-
ricanes," said Kelley. "I'm
encouraging all producers to
contact their local FSA office
as soon as possible so they can
enroll in these programs before
the deadline, because there are
no late filed provisions for these
programs."
The four programs Live-
stock Indemnity Program (LIP),
Feed Indemnity Program (FIP),
Hurricane Indemnity Program
(HIP), and Tree Indemnity Pro-
gram (TIP) are funded through
Section 32 of the Act of August
24th, 1935. Agriculture Secretary
Mike Johannes authorized the
use of $250 million from Sec-
tion 32 funds in October 2005
for crop disaster, livestock, tree,
and aquaculture assistance.
The Livestock Indemnity
Program provides payments to

Bell JV Bulldogs
Lose To Trenton JV
Tigers 20-8
This game got underway as
Trenton scored two touchdowns
in the first half. Bell quarterback
Jordan Mehl threw a pass to Ty-
ler Popp and Bell's # 5 dashed
50 yards for a touchdown. The
Bulldog signal caller connected
with # 10 John Bailey for a 2-
point conversion to cut the visi-
tors lead to 14-8 at halftime.
The second half started off
with a fumble caused by #2 Jer-
emy Zimmerman, recovered by
Bells #7 Quintin Hudson.
The middle of the third quarter


TJ Kircher and Paul Bloom were
announced for a tackle on the
Tiger's quarterback. However,
throughout the game, make no
mistake about it, Tyler Pop was
on top of his game this night.
Late in the third quarter #12 Jor-
dan Nehl made an interception
and then in the fourth quarter
#80 Chris Wilkerson made an
incredible catch for a first down
to keep the drive alive.
Even though our smaller,
younger, 7th-8th and 9th grade
JV Bulldogs put up a good fight,
they just couldn't overcome the
larger, older JV team of 8th-9th
and 10th graders of the Trenton
Tigers. Final score was 20-8.


Keep your heads up dogs! We
have many more to go.
The Bulldogs give a personal
thanks to Mrs. Angel Taylor for
working with the JV team on
such short notice; it all went
rather smoothly, thanks again!
The team would also like to give
thanks to the quarterback club
for arranging to feed the boys,
they're now able to walk uptown
and eat a good meal before each
home game. The team would
also like to thank Mr. Tommy
Philman for his dedication over
the years to the Bell Bulldogs
and for all his support.
Go Bulldogs!

Trenton Middle
School Participates
In Reading Aloud!
As Part Of A Record
Breaking Event For
The Guinness World
Book Of Records
On Thursday, .September
28th, between 11:00 a.m.-
11:30 a.m. EST. Trenton Middle
School grades 6-8 will join over
200,000 other middle school
students in Florida in an at-
tempt to break the Guinness
World Record in reading for the
"Most People Reading Aloud
Simultaneously in Multiple
Locations." The event, Break-
ing a World Record: Reading
Aloud! will be led by Governor
Jeb Bush in a broadcast/webcast
in which the governor will lead
a statewide read aloud using an
excerpt from the book Peter and
the Starcatchers written by Dave
Barry and Ridley Pearson.
Florida's middle school stu-
dents have made significant
improvements in reading. This
year, 223,000 more students are
reading on grade level or above
grade level compared to 2001,
and improvements in middle
school reading tripled that of
any previous single year again.
Our own middle school students
have continued to show gains in
reading proficiency.
This event should prove to
be an exciting time for all our
middle school students. They
will gather in the auditorium
and witness the event on the big
screen via the webcast. Hope-
fully, the reading will set the
hook for many of the students
to check out the book Peter
and the Starcatchers and read it
completely.

Turkey Hunting
Seasons Have Not
Been Cancelled
An official-looking notice
announcing cancellation of
Florida's 2006 turkey hunting
seasons is a hoax.
According to the bogus notice,
delivered to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission (FWC) via fax, sev-
eral cases of avian influenza in
Northwest Florida wild turkeys
prompted closure of this year's
turkey hunting seasons, and pos-
sibly subsequent years' through
2009, as well. It says the ac-
tion is necessary to prevent the
disease from spreading through
other wild bird populations.
The FWC and other agencies
across the continent are monitor-
ing bird populations for signs of
the disease. To date, they have
discovered no cases of the high-
ly dangerous form of the disease.

Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, September 14th, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. What a
busy day we had. Quilters from
the Anthony Quilt Club came
over to visit and it made for a
day of-fellowship and exchang-
ing ideas. Quilters always have
much to talk about and it was
great to have them over.
Next Thursday night will be
Law Appreciation Night and we
hope to have many out to sup-
port the men and women who
keep us safe.
At last, our history of the
Museum is at the print shop
and we look forward to seeing
it published. It has taken many
hours to write, to get names
spelled correctly, pictures to go
with stories, trying to remember
not to leave anyone or anything
out. We do have a record of
everything that was made, all the
quilts and crafts that have been
done since October 7, 1983.
One day we will count the quilts
that have been made.
Lunch was so good, we were
all hungry. Chicken, eggplant,
corn, squash casserole, fried
eggplant, kraut and hot dogs,
beans, salads, Marie's chow?,
Betty's coconut' pie, Doris'
pound cake, and so much more.
There were 14 members and 7
guests present.

From The

Shelves Of

The Bell

Library
This week I am recommend-
ing Walt Disney's edition of
Sleeping Beauty which is so
beautifully illustrated. This book
is found in the beginning reader
shelves but it is a wonderful
read-aloud book that will take a
few days to read.
For the junior/teenage group,
I read Horse Magic that is #
47 in the Saddle Club Series
written by Bonnie Bryant. It
is Halloween and some city kids
are coming to visit the Stables.
You must read the book to learn
about the Trick or Treat fun and
how the Treasure Hunt ends with
pranks and maybe a ghost.
We are suggesting, for the
adults that like a good mystery,
Black Notice written by Patricia
Cornwell. This is an older book
featuring Dr. Sccarpetta and was
published in 1999. The novel
is well researched as usual for
Cornwell's writings.
We are still recruiting volun-
teers and waiting for our new
roof and renovations on the
library to get started.

Florida Farmers'
Markets And Small
Farmers Win With
Grant Award
The Florida Association of
Community Farmers' Markets.
has received its first grant award
under a new program from the
United States Department of Ag-
riculture: Agriculture Secretary
Mike Johanns announced Friday
20 grants totaling $900,000 to
establish, expand or promote
local farmers' markets, roadside
stands, and similar agricultural
ventures under the new Farm-
ers Market Promotion Program
(FMPP).
"Farmers' markets are popu-
lar throughout the country and
beneficial for both farmers and
consumers," said Johanns. "It
gives farmers another outlet to
sell their products, and consum-
ers access to fresh, locally grown
food,"
The goal of the FMPP is to
increase domestic consumption
of fresh fruits, vegetables and
other agricultural products while
providing support to farmers.
USDA's Agricultural Marketing
Service (AMS) administers the
program. These first-time grants
are authorized under the recently
amended Farmer-to-Consumer
Direct Marketing Act of 1976.
These grants will assist
regional farmers' markets' au-
thorities; local governments;
,:onpxofq~ and economic devel-
opment corporations; and tribal
governments in 17 states in car-
rying out a variety of projects.
The Florida award of $63,238
will develop baseline data on
the economic and demographic
characteristics of Florida farm-
ers' markets; provide training to
Florida farmers who may need
assistance in transitioning from
selling to wholesale buyers to
supplying household consum-
ers; train farmers' market man-
agers in identifying and recruit-
ing local growers to participate
in community farmers' markets;
and expand consumer awareness
of locally grown farm products
through promotional activities.
Project manager' and grant
writer, Sharon L. Yeago, Presi-
dent of FACFM, developed the
proposal in cooperation with
project partners-the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services' Marketing
Division and the University of
Florida, Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences' Exten-
sion Service., Fiscal Agent for
the project is Jeannette Peters,
Non-Profit Management Con-
sulting, LLC.

Veterans Affairs
Selects Site For
Jacksonville National
Cemetery
A 569-acre property owned by
the City of Jacksonville, Florida,
will become the site of a national
cemetery to serve the burial
needs of north Florida's veter-
ans for 30 years or more. The
Honorable R. James Nicholson,
Secretary of Veterans Affairs,
announced the Department of
Veterans Affairs (VA) selection
of the site and intent to purchase
the property.
"Northeastern Florida is one
of VA's priorities for providing a
national cemetery for veterans,"
said Nicholson. "Establishing
this national shrine will ensure
that thousands of men and wom-
en who have worn the uniforms
of the U.S. armed forces have a
place that honors their military
service."
VA originally considered 14
sites and completed environ-
mental assessments for four of
them last spring. The Secretary
made his decision after consid-
ering the viability of each site.
The Jacksonville property is
pasture land available for sale
from the city and is north of the
airport on Lannie Road.
Funds for purchase of the'
land have been appropriated by
Congress. Additional funding
will be required for design and
construction in future years. If
the land is purchased in the next
few months and design begins
next year, VA could start burials
in the summer of 2009.
The National Cemetery Ex-
pansion Act of 2003 directed
VA to build six new national
cemeteries in selected areas with
large veteran populations. Ap-
proximately 325,000 veterans
live within 75 miles of Jack-
sonville.
Veterans whose discharges are
other than dishonorable, their
spouses and dependent children
may be buried in a national cem-
etery, regardless of where they
live. No advance reservations
are made. Other burial benefits
for eligible veterans include a
burial flag, a Presidential Memo-
rial Certificate and a government
headstone or marker even if
they are not buried in a national
cemetery.
Information on VA burial
benefits can be obtained from
national cemetery offices, from a
VA Web site at www.cem.va.gov
or by calling VA regional offices
toll-free at 1-800-827-1000.


There will be a benefit bar-
becue chicken dinner held for
the Leukemia and Lymphoma
Society on Saturday, September
23, 2006. It will be held at the
Trenton Train Depot between 4:

There will be live music so
bring your lawn chairs. The din-
ner will be $6.00 per plate and
that is including the drink.

available. Call Suzanne David

Florida Department
Of Health Recognizes
September As
National Cholesterol
Education Month
The Florida Department
of Health Heart Disease and
Stroke Prevention Program and
the National Heart, Lung, and
Blood Institute (NHLBI) urge
Floridians to "Know your cho-
lesterol numbers, know your
risk, give yourself some TLC"
during National Cholesterol
Education Month. Therapeutic
lifestyle changes (TLC) includes
a three-part program to use diet,
physical activity, and weight
management to bring cholesterol
levels down.
"High blood cholesterol is
one of the major risk factors for
heart disease," said Deputy State
Health Officer Bonita Sorensen,
M.D., M.B.A. "It is important to
get your blood cholesterol mea-
sured, know your risk for devel-
oping heart disease and make
therapeutic lifestyle changes
(TLC) to lower cholesterol and
reduce the risk of heart disease."
Heart disease is the number
one killer of women and men
in Florida. In 2004, there were
more than 60,000 deaths in
Florida due to cardiovascular
disease, accounting for 36 per-
cent of all deaths. Data from
the 2005 Behavioral Risk Fac-
tor Surveillance System show
that among adults in Florida,
about 76 percent have had their
cholesterol checked in the past
five years, and of those, about
40 percent were told their cho-
lesterol is high.
Individuals are encouraged to
have their cholesterol checked
during the month of September.
A fasting lipoprotein profile
measures total cholesterol, low-
density lipoprotein (LDL) cho-
lesterol, high-density lipoprotein
(HDL) cholesterol, and triglyc-
eride levels. Everyone age 20 or
older should have this blood test
at least once every five years.
A total cholesterol level of less
than 200 mg/dL is desirable. At
200-239 mg/dL, total cholesterol
is considered to be borderline
high and 240 mg/dL and above
is considered high cholesterol.

At levels above 200 mg/dL,
cholesterol builds up in the walls
of the arteries. The arteries be-
come narrowed and blood flow
to the heart to be slowed down
or blocked, causing either chest
pain or a heart attack.
Therapeutic lifestyle changes
are recommended as the primary
treatment for lowering choles-
terol. There are several things
you can do to control high blood
cholesterol: Diet. Reduce the
amount of saturated fat, trans
fat, and cholesterol in your diet
to help lower your blood cho-
lesterol level. Physical activity.
Regular physical activity, such
as brisk walking, for 30 minutes
on most, if not all, days can help
lower LDL (bad) cholesterol
and raise HDL (good) choles-
terol. Weight. Lose weight, if
overweight, to help lower your
LDL and total cholesterol levels,
as well as raise your HDL and
lower your triglyceride levels.
Calculate whether or not you are
overweight by finding out what
your body mass index (BMI) is.
In addition to therapeutic
lifestyle changes, individuals
who smoke should contact their
health care provider to discuss
ways.to quit smoking. It is also
important to follow the advice of
a physician if placed on a choles-
terol-lowering drug.
DOH promotes and protects
the health and safety of all

Florida Department
Of Health Recognizes
September As
Prostate Cancer
Awareness Month
As the Florida Department
of Health (DOH) observes
September as Prostate Cancer
Awareness Month, Deputy State
Health Officer Bonita Sorensen,
M.D., M.B.A., encourages men,
over the age of 50, to make an
appointment to see a physician
and discuss prostate screening.
"Prostate cancer screening
is a critical test that can save
lives," said Dr. Sorensen. "Af-
rican-American men and men
who have a close relative with a
prostate cancer diagnosis may be
at an increased risk and should
consider beginning screenings
as early as age 45."
Prostate cancer is the second
leading cause of cancer death in
Florida, exceeded only by lung
cancer. The American Cancer
Society estimates that 2,570
men in Florida will die of pros-
tate cancer during 2006.
According to the American
Cancer Society, prostate cancer
is the most common cancer,
excluding skin cancers, in
American men. It is estimated
that during 2006 about 234,460
new cases of prostate cancer
will be diagnosed in the U.S.,
and 18,090 new prostate cancers
will be diagnosed in the state of
Florida during.2006. ,
The state of Florida has seen
a steady decline in the age-ad-
justed incidence rate of prostate
cancer since peaking in 1992,
as the Prostate Specific Antigen
(PSA) test for prostate cancer
came into general use. This
trend has been seen both among
Non-Hispanic Whites and Non-
Hispanic Blacks. All cancers
diagnosed in the State of Florida
are reported to the Florida Can-
cer Data System, the statewide,
population-based registry to
monitor the occurrences of can-
cer for the entire state.
DOH encourages men to be
aware of the risk factors asso-
ciated with developing prostate
cancer and take an active role
in their health. Factors that
may increase the risk of devel-
oping prostate cancer include:
Age As a man ages, his risk
increases. The average age of
patients at the time of diagnosis
is 70. Race The disease is
much more common in African-
American men thai in white
men. It is less common in Asian
and American Indian men. Fam-
ily history of prostate cancer If
a man's father or brother has had
the disease, especially at an early
age, the risk is higher. Diet and
dietary factors A diet high in
animal fat and lower in fruits and
vegetables may increase the risk
of prostate cancer.
Men who may have any of
these risk factors should consult
their physicians regarding annu-
al screenings. Contact your local
county health department for
prostate cancer activities being
conducted in your community.
For more information on
prostate cancer and screen-
ing, call the National Cancer
Institute at 1-800-4-CANCER
or visit the DOH Web site at
www.doh.state.fl.us and select
Cancer from the drop box.


quirements. It also will recom-
mend state-approved education
courses strengthen their educa-
tional component for non-mo-
torized vessels.
The BAC will review these
recommendations and decide if
a formal proposal to the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission is appropriate for
future legislative action.
Non-motorized vessels in-
clude'canoes, kayaks, rowboats,
non-motorized sailboats and
paddlecraft. They do not include
"watertoys" such as air mattress-
es, inner tubes, float tubes, boo-
gie boards, surf boards, beach
rafts or other similar devices
designed to be used by bathers
at beaches, lakes or swimming
pools.
Of Florida's 70 reported fatal
boating accidents in 2005, 10
involved non-motorized vessels,
which resulted in 12 of the 81
boating fatalities.
The Non-motorized Vessel
Subcommittee was formed in
December 2005, at the request
of BAC chair FWC Col. Julie

Notice is hereby given by Ameri-

("Tri-County"), as part of a series of
transactions between American, Tri-
County, and Merchants and"Farm-
ers Bank, Koscinsko, Mississippi
("M&F"). The series of transac-
tions is as follows: Ameris Bancorp
("Ameris"), the parent company of
both American and Tri-County, will
transfer the stock of Tri-County to
American. Following this transfer,
it is anticipated that American will
acquire substantially all of the as-
sets and assume substantially all of
the liablilities of Tri-County, with
the exception of certain assets and
liabilities of Tri-County associ-
ated with its office located at 530
East Wade Street, Trenton, Florida

First M&F Corporation, will acquire
all of the outstanding shares of Tri-
County from American. Immedi-

by merger, the remaining asses and
liabilities of Tri-County, whereupon
American will then purchase such
assets and liablilites from M&F.
Once this series of transactions is
complete, American will have as-
quired all of the assets and assumed
all of the liabilities of Tri-County,
and each office of Tri-County,
including the office located at 530
East Wade Street, Trenton, Florida

transactions, American will file two
applications with the FDIC. One

the liablilities of Tri-County, and
the other application relates to the
acquisition of assets and liabilities
associated with the office located
at 530 East Wade Street, Trenton,
Florida 32693, from M&F.
Once the transaction is complete,
it is contemplated that the main of-
fice and each branch office of Tri-
County will continue to operate as
branch offices of American.

Character
Connection
(Continued from Page One)
sponsibilities during a lifetime
because they experience many
different roles. Recognizing
your roles in life helps you to
understand the responsibilities
associated with those roles.
Citizens are responsible to honor
and defend their country and its
laws. Students must make the
most of their time in school by
paying attention, obeying their
teachers, and doing their best.
Children are responsible to obey
not only the expressed instruc-
tions of their parents, but also
their implied wishes. Parents
are responsible to train, protect,
and provide for their children
without provoking them to an-
ger. Employees are responsible
to make their employer and their
company successful. Employers
are responsible to pay their em-
ployees honestly and to provide
a safe workplace.
Responsibility is not limited
to the specific words used to
communicate an assignment.
The concept goes beyond the
letter of what others say. It also
includes unspoken expectations
because responsibility requires
knowledge of many unspoken
expectations. Being effective


in teaching responsibility also
requires both the motivation to
keep a promise and the knowl-
edge to understand what a person
promises when he or she ways "I
will do this or that." Wanting to
be responsible without knowing
how to be responsible is often as
useless as knowing what to do
but refusing to do it.
With rights comes respon-
sibility. Altering that balance
produces disaster. Rights and
responsibilities go hand in hand.
As individuals demonstrate re-
sponsibility in small tasks, they
receive more rights. As they
receive more rights, they take on
added responsibilities. Be care-
ful not to demand one without
the other, and remember, we
all achieve more when we put
character first as we prove to the
world that our county is a county
of character because it's a county
of citizens who care.

the subject's vehicle. Goodwin
interviewed three subjects who
confessed to killing the deer
about an hour earlier. Good-
win charged the three teenagers
with possession of freshly killed
deer during the closed season.
The firearm and spotlight were
seized as evidence.
September 10th, Officer Alan
Hofmeister assisted Investigator
Jason Boswell with a report of
an eagle's nest being destroyed
in southern Clay County. U.S.
Fish and Wildlife officials were
notified and are currently in-
volved in the investigation.
DIXIE COUNTY
September 8th, Officer Travis
Cooper found a deer that had
been shot and killed off of Log
Landing Road. Cooper, along
with Investigator Larry Ayers
and Officers Justin Allen, Zack
Clark, Gary Jones, Darby But-
ler and Sam Dishman with K9:
"Bear," began an investigation.
Cooper had been patrolling the
area and noticed a truck in the
area the night before. From the
description of the truck and its
tire sign, the truck was located
at a nearby residence. After
several interviews, two subjects
were located and admitted to
killing the deer. One of the
subjects also admitted to killing
two more deer earlier this month
in Dixie County. Cooper wrote
five citations for illegally taking
deer during the closed season
and seized two rifles.
DUVAL COUNTY
September 11th, Officers
Craig Maguire and Jamie Bevan
stopped a vehicle which was
trespassing in the Little Jetties
Park. The officers discovered the
driver possessed an open con-
tainer of alcohol and the passen-
ger had a warrant for his arrest.
The driver was issued a citation
and released. The passenger was
arrested and transported to the
Duval County Jail. As Maguire
finished the processing paper-
work at the jail, the suspect told
him quietly that he wanted to be
honest; he had some "weed" on
him. The suspect said it was in
his shoe; inside his sock. The
sock was removed and a bag
of marijuana was found. The
subject was also arrested on the
second charge.
LEVY COUNTY
During the weekend Inves-
tigator Chip Biaidshiaw was
working in the Goethe Wildlife
Management Area (WMA). He
came across individuals picking
large amounts of palmetto ber-
ries. Bradshaw observed a crew
of approximately 12 people har-
vesting the berries. He located
four other people who were the
drivers/supervisors of the work
crew. With the help of Officer
Sam Dishman and Department
of Agriculture and Consumer
Services (DACS) Investigator
Wade Merrit, it was determined
that 11,000 to 12,000 pounds
of berries had been harvested
from the WMA. There were
a total of four citations issued
by Bradshaw and Merrit for il-
legally removing plant life from
Goethe WMA. Merrit, being the
representative of the landowner
(State Forest), directed the sub-
jects to disperse the berries back
onto the property and remove
the empty bags.
SUWANNEE COUNTY
Last week, Investigators Guy
Carpenter and Neal Martin made
a marijuana possession case
against a defendant they had
been watching on the Suwan-
nee River. Further investigation
later in the week resulted in the
charge being raised to a felony
by the State Attorney's Office
and a second person charged.
After the investigators weighed
the suspected marijuana and
determined it to be a felony
amount.


Marketing Campaign
Helps Florida Shrimp
Industry Beset By
Flood Of Foreign
Imports
A three-year marketing cam-
paign helped keep Florida's
shrimp industry viable in the
face of unrelenting competi-
tion from foreign countries,
Florida Agriculture Comms-
sioner Charles H. Bronson said


today.
The "Wild and Wonderful
Shrimp" promotion, conducted
by the Florida Department of
Agriculure and Consumer Ser-
vices from 2004 to 2006, was
instrumental in the sale of 2.7
million pounds of Florida wild-
caught shrimp by participating
retail stores. Some stores re-
ported sales increases as high
as 2,000 percent over the same
periods in prior years.
"Florida's shrimp industry
has faced an onslaught of com-
petition from foreign countries


that nave exported more man
a billion pounds of shrimp into
the U.S. market in the past few
years," Bronson said. "Many of
our state's shrimpers have been
forced out of business altogeth-
er, and the remaining ones have
experienced very difficult times.
This marketing campaign was
crucial in helping keep Florida's
shrimp industry alive."
According to the National
Marine Fisheries Service, for-
eign countries have captured
88 percent of the total U.S.
market. Vietnam, China, India,
and Brazil have dramatically
increased exports to the United
States in recent years. An esti-
mated 200,000 U.S. jobs have
been lost.
The state and federally funded
campaign focused on raising
consumer awareness about the
benefits of buying wild-caught
shrimp and highlighted the Flor-
ida shrimp industry's economic
value to the state. Florida's
shrimp industry, supports 4,400
jobs and contributes more than
$185 million to the state's
economy.
"Florida shrimp is a premium
quality product with superior
taste," Bronson said. "We be-
lieve that consumers deserve to
have a choice, and we encour-
age them to ask for shrimp
from Florida. When they do,
they receive a wholesome,
natural product--and they help
our fishermen and our state's
economy."
The advertising incentive
program required retailers and
restaurants to use the "Ask for
Shrimp from Florida" logo in
their advertising and encour-
aged in-store shrimp promo-
tions. A total of 3,011 stores in
14 supermarket chains located
in 26 states and Washington,
D.C., participated. Participat-
ing Florida supermarket chains
were Publix, Winn-Dixie and
Kash 'N' Karry SweetBay. Na-
tional stores included Kroger,
Harris Tceter, HEB Grocers,
Giant Foods, Schnucks, Jewell
Food Stores, Ukrops, Roundys,
Bi-Lo, Cub Foods, Heinen's,
King Soopers, Fred Meyer, and
Farm Fresh.
In addition to the advertis-
ing incentive program, the
"Wild and Wonderful Florida
Shrimp" campaign included the
following componepns: radio
and television public service
advertisements; media relations
initiatives to educate consum-
ers on the quality of Florida
shrimp; point-of-purchase
materials including brochures,
posters, and static clings for
use by retailers; partnerships
with chefs including in-store
demonstrations, television ap-
pearances and celebrity chef
programs; trade show and
festival participation; sponsor-
ship of the "Ask for Shrimp
from Florida" race car in the
NASCAR ARCA circuit; the
www.WildFloridaShrimp.com
website which features shrimp
recipes and industry facts and
statistics.
