Brandon Ridgeway Homecoming 2006-2007 Budget To Governor


By Libby Surrency
Bell High School celebrated an-
other successful Homecoming on
a cool Friday night at the Bulldog
Stadium; newly dubbed the "Bone
Yard" Homecoming activities start-
ed off with a bang at the Thursday
night Bulldog Growl where students,
teachers, parents, and Bell High
School Alumni young and old en-
joyed humorous skits presented by
different classes and organizations of
Bell High. The Purple Powerhouse
Marching Band entertained the crowd
with amazing music, and the Bulldog
Football team was introduced and
honored. Eighth graders Janie Reed
and Rich Royster were crowned as
the Bell Middle School Princess and
Prince at the end of the night. The
BHS Marching Band would go on to
win Ist Place in the Skit Contest.
On Friday afternoon, the annual
Bell High School Homecoming Pa-
rade delighted the citizens of Bell
as colorful floats showed off this
year's homecoming theme: Around
the World in 5 Days. From Latin
America to Australia to Ancient
Egypt, all of the Middle and High
School floats showed off the cre-
ativity and flair of Bell students.
The Sophomore Class of Bell High
School won the Homecoming Float

Trenton To Celebrate Homecoming

Sheriff Says Budget
Proposal Endangers
Public Safety
Submitted by the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office
Today, Gilchrist County Sheriff
David Turner filed a petition with the
Governor's office in Tallahassee chal-
lenging the adequacy of the FY 2006
- 2007 Sheriff's budget the Gilchrist
County Commission passed. Sheriff
Turner says the amount endangers
public safety in Gilchrist County.
"Our Commissioners need to put
public safety ahead of politics," said
Sheriff Turner. "This action is not
taken lightly but I cannot in good
conscience allow our County Com-
mission to jeopardize my constitu-
tional right and duty to protect the
citizens of Gilchrist County."

Dear Gilchrist County
Board Of County
After consideration and discussion
with my family I have made the dif-
ficult decision to step down as your
Director of Public Safety, effective
November20111h, 2006. This decision
will allow me to become the Division
Chief of the State Attorney's Office
here in Gilchrist County. This is a
position I have wanted since before
I graduated law school and is a won-
derful opportunity to serve the com-
munity and protect our citizens from
our ever growing crime rate.

mary goals that I had set for the De-

The Sheriff cited a recent example
where the Gilchrist County Commis-
sion authorized an expansion of the
courthouse but refused to fund the

out the country, the need for court-

Programs At THS
By Anna Wild
On Monday, October 16, 2006
the Trenton High School Chapter of
FFA came to visit the Trenton Rotary
Club to update them on some ne\w
programs. Steve Broker, Agricultiure
teacher at Trenton High School, in-
troduced their newest addition to the
Ag Program, Erin Verplanck, wlho
instructs the Middle School Students.
All Middle School students are now
exposed to \Agriultural Science in

Brandi Coleman, new President of
the Gilchrist FFA and Kiristie Boy-
ette, Secretary were both able to at-
tend the meeting and expressed what
a positive impact FFA has on our lo-
cal youth.
Brandi Colemaii explained that the

fer students the chance to Icarn about
Agricultural sciences as a foundation,

plained the middle school's exposure
to Ag classes. She did express a con-
cern that the participation numbers
are down this year. Right now 120
students are enrolled in classes in the
Ag Department. She explained that

As the upcoming election draws
closer, the prices of both crude oil
and gasoline are in a steady decline.
When the $60 per barrel price for
crude oil was breached, OPEC be-
came uneasy and several of its mem-
bers began agitating for a reduction
in output. Remarkably, Saudi Arabia,
a long term ally of the current admin-
istration, continues to remain silent
on the subject.
Meanwhile, OPEC's output quota
is currently set at 28 million barrels
per day. However, a report from the
International Energy Agency indi-
cates that the market's demand for
OPEC crude during the first quarter
of next year will be about 29.5 mil-
lion barrels per day.
Therefore, it would appear reason-
able that we will see a return to the
$70 per barrel price range. Yet, I am
willing to postulate that this will not
happen until after the upcoming elec-
tion, at which time Saudi Arabia will
decide to back a production cut.
I mention this only because a re-
turn to $70 per barrel oil, with its
guarantee of higher fuel and distillate
prices, will likely mean a stimulus to
the current inflationary pressures.
Add in the latest statement from
the minutes of the September 20
meeting of the Federal Reserve in-
dicating that, "Recent rates of core
inflation, if they persisted, were seen
as higher than consistent with price
stability," and any chance of the of
the Fed lowering interest rates has a
low probability of occurring. In fact,
an increase would be more likely.
Should the economy continue to
slow at the behest of higher oil prices,
or higher interest rates, it should not
discourage you from adding to your
portfolio. Furthermore, if the current

What Good Thing Shall I Do?
(Kent Heaton)

"And, behold, one came and said unto him, Good
Master, what good thing shall I do, that I may have
eternal life?" (Matthew 19:16)? The young man who came
to Jesus was interested in the most important answer of his
life. He was a devout Jew who had kept the Law since his
youth (v20). He recognized Jesus as a source of authority
to answer his question. As he looked within himself, he
questioned if there was something he was lacking. The
answer Jesus gave was not the reply that he thought he
would face. "Jesus said unto him, 'If thou wilt be perfect,
go and sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou
shall have treasure in heaven: and come and follow me.'
But when the young man heard that saying, he went away
sorrowful: for he had great possessions" (Matthew
Salvation comes for those who have an inquiring mind.
The young man was interested in eternal life; he came to
the right source and asked the right question. His inquiry
was honest and seeking truth. The answer given was plain
and simple to understand. What he did not come to Jesus
with was a heart fully convicted to do whatever it took to
find eternal life. His idea of salvation was strictly a means
of religious duty that as long as he kept the Law, that is all
he had to do. He was not prepared for what he really
needed to do.
Understanding salvation involves a total willingness to
do whatever the Lord requires to obey Him. Often people
desire salvation and seek the answers from the right source
- His word. They read with interest what the Lord
commands, how the disciples carried out His commands
and the exhortations of the epistles describing the reason to

obey the Lords command but then turn away sadly
because they are asked to do something they do not
understand. How excited they are at first to seek the answer
to eternal life and then return home weeping because they
must do something they find difficult to do.
The jailor of Philippi was not like the young.man of
Matthew 19. When he stumbled in the darkened cell where
Paul and Silas remained, he cried out, ""Sirs, what must I
do to be saved?" (Acts 16:30)? The prisoners "spoke the
word of the Lord to him together with all who were in his
house. And he took them that very hour of the night and
washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptized,
he and all his household" (Acts 16:33). What was
different? The jailor and his household were willing to do
whatever was necessary to be saved.
When you come to the Lord seeking salvation, your
heart must be open to whatever He speaks to you. The only
heart that will be receptive to obedience is one willing to
listen and obey everything commanded of God. The young
man of Matthew 19 was so close and yet found himself so
far from eternal life. He was not willing to listen and obey
everything commanded of God.
Every example of obedience in the book of Acts
illustrates the character of those who were willing to do
whatever was commanded of them by the Lord (Acts
2:14-41; 8:5-13, 35-38; 9:1-18; 22:16; 10:34-48; 16:13-15,
25-34; 18:8). There were many who did not obey they
were not willing to do ALL that was commanded of them
by God. What are you willing to do for eternal life? Are
you the rich young ruler or the jailor?

Don't you just love a cup of coffee
or a cup of hot chocolate on a cool
morning. Lately I've had the urge to
cook a big ol' pot of soup. My moth-
er, Doris Beauchamp, makes the best
soup around. My children will tell
you quick that their Granny's soup is
I'm pretty sure it's the fact that she
takes about a half day to make soup
from start to finish. Good soup can't
be made in a big hurry. It could be
that she puts her home canned-to-
matoes, acre peas and butter beans
that she put up in the summer into the
soup. She will simmer the meat for
hours before adding her vegetables.
She usually cooks about a pound of
stew beef and a pound or two of soup
bone until the meat becomes tender.
Momma depends on the beef bone to
give the soup a good flavor.
Other vegetables she uses include
onions, celery, English peas, string
beans, whole grain corn and okra.
She adds a can Campbell's Tomato
Soup which helps thicken the soup.
Near the end of cooking time she
adds a handful each of macaroni pas-
ta and rice. When the last two items
are done the soup is ready. Another
tip is that she likes to add quite a bit
of black pepper to the soup.
When I make beef and vegetable
soup I really like to use beef short ribs
if I can find them. When you purchase
the short ribs you have bone and meat
in one pack. Not only that but the
short ribs are a little on the fatty side
which isn't too good for you in the
long run then again that beef fat sure
makes the soup better. I like to cook
the short ribs for about two hours on
a slow boil. If the broth is too fatty I

economic outlook gives you an over-
whelming desire for a soft drink, so
much the better.
Yes, today the topic is PepsiCo and
Coca-Cola, two soft drink manufac-
turers that can be characterized as be-
ing resistant to economic downturns.
A year ago when I wrote about them,
PepsiCo was trading at $57.71 and
Coca-Cola at $41.72. Today the two
share prices are $63.86 and $44.12
While the current track record of
'the two companies puts PepsiCo in
the lead in terms of the capital gain in
share prices during the past year, with
PepsiCo up 10.7 percent and Coca-
Cola up 5.8 percent, the question of
importance is what the future might
hold for ihe..im o sto.ks,... ..
Beginning with a discounted earn-
ings model, the intrinsic value of
PepsiCo is $73, while that of Coca-
Cola is $52. Shifting to a free cash
flow to the firm model yields an in-
trinsic value of $88 for PepsiCo and
$55.49 for Coca-Cola.
My 2006 earnings estimate for Pep-
siCo is $3.00 per share and $3.40 for
2007. For Coca-Cola, the numbers
are $2.32 and $2.53. PepsiCo has a
trailing twelve month multiple or P/E
ratio of 25, resulting in price targets
of $75 for this year and $85 f0r 2007.
Coca-Cola's multiple is 20.4, which
yields price targets of $47 and $51
for this year and next respectively.
As a result, the projected appre-
ciation of PepsiCo's shares is a com-
pounded gain of about 21 percent
over the next 18 months. The equiva-
lent number for Coca-Cola is 9.8 per-

pour it up in a clear glass bowl and let
it set for 15 or 20 minutes. All the fat
will come to the top of the broth and
I can skim off as much of the fat as I
want at that point before I start add-
ing the vegetables.
Another soup tip is to always use
a heavy bottomed pot. Soup doesn't
stick to the bottom of a heavy pot as
easily as a thin pot.
I don't always have extra acre peas
like momma to use in soup. But I buy
the freshest vegetables I can find to
make soup with.
Remember soup will often taste
better after it spends the night in the
refrigerator. Don't forget garlic and
bay leaves when looking for good
flavoring in soup. Also remember a
pinch of pepper flakes makes a won-
derful addition to most soups.
My all time favorite soup is really
crab bisque, but good blue crab meat
is real expensive and hard to find. So
I converted an old crab bisque recipe
to the following shrimp bisque reci-
pe. It's pretty good, if I must say so.

Vote For Tourism
Development Tax On
November 7th
Primary election is fast approach-
ing so remember to mark your cal-
endars to be at the polls and cast
your vote on the ballot for the
adoption of the Gilchrist County
Tourism Development Tax. This tax
will allow Gilchrist County visitors
that stay overnight at campgrounds,
hotels, motels, condos, and short-term
rentals to pay 2 percent of their
overnight fee to help promote Gil-
christ. The Tourist Tax is placed on
the customer's bill just like regular
sales tax and is submitted as tax to
the Florida Department of Revenue
along with their sales tax so there
is no extra paperwork for the busi-
ness owners. The Department of
Revenue then returns that amount to
Gilchrist County monthly. The Tour-
ist Tax collected will not go into the
general funds but will provide a rev-
enue source to fund the promotion of
tourism, which is currently funded
from Ad Valorem taxes. The funds
can only be used for: advertising Gil-
christ County, promoting events such
as Down Home Days or facilities.
What are the benefits of voting for
the Tourist Tax? One would be mon-
etary, showing that tourist spending
assists Florida residents by building
and growing thriving businesses,
which in turn creates more jobs and
higher earning wages. The average
amount spent by each visitor per day
is around $136.00 at our local restau-
rants, shops, grocery stores, natural
and historical sites and accommoda-
tions. Another benefit that is attrib-
uted to promoting Gilchrist County
is the better understanding of preser-
vation. Residents and visitors alike

1/3 cup celery, chopped finely
1/3 cup green onions, chopped fine
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup all purpose flour
2 cups half and half
3 cups milk
Salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper
1 pound peeled shrimp
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley
This recipe takes a little while to
make so don't hurry. In the top of
a double boiler or in a heavy sauce
pan, add butter to pan and cook
onions and celery until tender. Then
add flour and cook until flour turns
a little golden colored. Next slowly
pour in half and half and milk. Add
shrimp that have been cut up then
add seasonings to taste, salt, pepper,
cayenne pepper and parsley and
continue to cook over medium low
heat until the bisque becomes thick.
Continue to stir as it cooks. Serve
with Captain Wafers. This should
make five servings.

lives to step up and help lead this
organization so that the youth of
this county are not deprived.
On the other hand, the people
who have been going around mak-
ing derogatory remarks about our
organization and its board members
tarnish the mission of our organi-
zation and more importantly the
willingness of parents and youth to
participate in our programs. Please
don't listen to the comments of an
anonymous individual without at
least listening to the "other side of
the story". We in no way pretend
or believe that we provide a perfect
service to Gilchrist County. How-
ever, our organization is made up

extremely hardworking, dedicated.

organization and more importantly-
enhancing the lives of all of the
children of Gilchrist County.
Our youth would be better served
if this anonymous individual would
attend our monthly board meeting
( second Monday of the month)
to dispel any misunderstandings
he/she may have about the mis-
sion, the integrity and the mettle
of this organization and its board
As I said, our Board Members
are extraordinary people who have
stepped up in this community to

I am extremely proud to stand

must come to know and experience
Gilchrist County in order to help with
the message of preserving our natural
and historical resources. Promoting
and preservation are hand in hand,
and one must experience the majestic
beauty and tranquility of the region
to fully understand the need to pre-
serve our lifestyle and heritage.
Also, the promotion is achieved
without spending local taxpayer's
money. It is estimated that approxi-
mately $7,500 per year would be col-
lected by this tax. As tourism grows,
revenues would increase. So on No-

velopment tax for Gilchrist County
to strengthen the local economy and
preserve our natural resources. If

Splits In Favor Of
Urban Development
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-

evening in their mid-month meeting
to continue to work toward an Urban
Development solution around Fan-

the Town of Bell and the residents
in the rural community were not in
favor of urban development. Com-

motion to further consider the No. 2
proposal for Fanning Springs and not

filled with candy. There will be a hay

be for sale for the parents wanting to
wait on the side lines. Last year there
were kids from Bronson, Trenton,

at 6:30 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m.

Remember Our Troops
For those who believe, prayer is a
powerful weapon. It not only does
something for the prayer, 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 sometimes
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 ei-
ther have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives here

This is called a "Carpenter's Wheel" and we use the Log Cabin pattern
to make it, by using 2 1/4 inch strips. It makes a double quilt.

Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
October 12th at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. So much goes on
each Thursday and everyone is busy.
Pat Osowieki is making a quillow.
Her square for the pillow side is ap-
pliqued and it will be a work of art.
Quilting goes on each week and now
plans are being worked out for the
Quilt Show. There is much to do
and we know many are making lots
of crafts at home. We have a 10-day
show and we look forward to seeing

our many friends who come from far
and near.
Some will be going down to Camp
Curuth November 5th, for Turkey in
the Ground. If you have never been
there they welcome visitors every day.
They work with hundreds of children
each year, teaching them how to get
along together, learning many crafts
and all the good that children need to
learn. We are in our
sixth year of helping and enjoy every
day we go down.
It was good to have Marie Pappen-

hager and Betty Salisbury back with
us. Seems there are many problems
but time does take care of so much.
Lunch was again with meatloaf,
mashed potatoes and gravy, corn frit-
ters, chili pasta, beans of all kinds,
carrot salad, fresh apple cake, Marie's
corn muffins and guava jelly.

will be Teaching Real Beauty: The
future of our girls, She has recently
joined with Girl Scouts to encourage
the Uniquely ME program, also sup-
ported by Dove's Campaign for Real
Beauty. "I feel like our young girls
need to be taught that beauty is not
only about outside beauty, but about
inside beauty as well. Girls begin to
struggle with their body image around
age 12-14. This is a time when these
girls need role models to show them
what real beauty is about. Otherwise
they get very consumed in only the
outer beauty." The winner will go on
to represent Ocala/Marion County in
Miss Florida. "As a local girl com-
peting for Miss Ocala/Marion Coun-
ty, I will also be representing the Tri-
County area, so any support locally
would be greatly appreciated.

Vote FOR Tourism Development Tax

Primary election is fast approaching so remember to mark your calen-
dars to be at the polls and cast your vote on the ballot FOR the adop-
tion of the Gilchrist County Development Tax. This tax will allow
Gilchrist County visitors that stay overnight at campgrounds, hotels,
motels, condos and short-term rentals to pay 2% of their overnight fee
to help promote Gilchrist. The Tourist Tax is placed on the
customer's bill just like regular sales tax and is submitted as tax to the
Florida Department of Revenue along with their sales tax so there is
no extra paperwork for the business owners. The Department of
Revenue then returns that amount to the Gilchrist County monthly.
The Tourist Tax collected will not go into the general funds but will
provide a revenue source to fund the promotion of tourism, which is
currently funded from Ad Valorem taxes. The funds can ONLY be
used for Advertising Gilchrist County, Promoting Events such as
Down Home Days or facilities.

What are the benefits of voting FOR the Tourist Tax? One would be
monetary; showing the tourist spending assists Florida residents by
building and growing thriving businesses, which in turn creates more
jobs and higher earning wages. The average amount spent by each
visitor per day is around $136.00 at our local restaurants, shops,
grocery stores, natural & historical sites and accommodations.
Another benefit that is attributed to promoting Gilchrist County is the
better understanding of reservations. Residents and visitors alike
must come to know and experience Gilchrist County in order to help
with the message of preserving our natural and historical resources.
Promoting and preservation are hand-in-hand and one must experi-
ence the majestic beauty and tranquility of the region to fully under-
stand the need to preserve our life style and heritage.

Also the promotion is achieved without spending local taxpayers'
money. It is estimated that approximately $7, 500 dollars per year
would be collected by this tax. As tourism grows, revenues would
increase. So on November 7, vote FOR the tourist development tax
for Gilchrist County to strengthen the local economy and preserve
our natural resources. If you have any questions call either Ron
McQueen @ (352) 463-3198 or Donna Creamer @ (352) 463-3467.

lunches, of course. That's why Bell
Elementary cafeteria manager, Betty
Shepherd, has gone all out in an ef-
fort to win first place, once again, in
the National School Lunch contest.
This years' theme, in keeping with
election year, was "Vote For School

Lunch". Students will be voting for
their favorite out of Ricky Chicken,
Roco Taco, Heddy Spaghetti, Sally
Salad and Pete Pizza. Not only will
this help students understand the vot-

Commissioner Winn
Announces School Bus
Safety Week
Education Commissioner John
L. Winn today announced October
15-21, 2006, as Florida School Bus
Safety Week. This year's theme, "I
see the driver the driver sees me,"
reminds students how to stay safe
when they are getting on or off the
bus or crossing the road. Motorists
are also reminded they must stop for
school buses when loading or unload-
ing students.
"We are committed to provid-
ing a safe public school transporta-
tion environment for our students,"
said Commissioner Winn. "Florida
school buses traveled more than 300
million miles last year with only 209
o reported injuries, most of which did
not require medical treatment. This
is a testament to our dedicated team
of professionals who do everything
they can to ensure the safety of our
most precious cargo our children."
The yellow school bus is one of the
safest modes of transportation for stu-
dents. School buses must meet Feder-
al Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, as
well as Florida School Bus Specifica-
tions. Recent improvements to bus
safety include fire-retardant seating,
antilock braking systems, reflective
materials on the exterior of the bus,
improved lighting and many others.
Florida's school transportation sys-
tem is the fifth largest in the United
States. In 2005-06, 15,600 Florida
school buses traveled more than 303
million miles and transported more.
than one million passengers each day.
Nationwide, 24.4 million elementary
and secondary students ride school
buses every day.
One of the most important safety
features is compartmentalization,"
whereby the seats in school buses are
spaced close together, with high seat
backs and specially designed cush-
ions to absorb crash forces and pro-
tect the occupants. Additionally, all
Florida school buses purchased since
2000 must be equipped with two-
point lap seat belts, with more than
8,500 seat belt equipped buses now
in service.
Florida works in partnership with
the Departments of Transportation
'and Highway Safety and Motor Ve-
hicles, the Florida Association for
Pupil Transportation, as well as local
traffic safety teams, school districts
and law enforcement to provide a
safe, accident-free environment for
students. School buses provide a
level of safety eight times greater per
vehicle mile than passenger cars.
The United States and Canada are
the only two major countries in the
world that provide purpose-built bus-
es meeting special safety standards

drivers are required to pass pre-em-

ground checks and drug and alcohol
tests. In addition, they hold a Com-
mercial Driver License with a special
School Bus Endorsement.
Improved bus safety features also
include enhanced safety and comfort
for bus drivers. Tilting and telescop-
ing steering wheels, high-back air
suspension seats, remotely adjust-
able mirror systems, reduced pedal

many recent upgrades. In addition,
more than 90 percent of new buses

Bell PreK Makes Pizza
Last month, the PreK at Bell El-
ementary School made pizzas. We
had just completed a story about Lit-
tle Red Hen Makes A Pizza and she
had gathered all the utensils and in-
gredients to make the pizza and none
of her friends would help her.
We were not like Mrs. Hen. Our
friends helped us make a pizza. Mrs.
Betty Shepherd and her ladies and
gentlemen from the cafeteria invited
us over to the cafeteria to make pizza.
We had a great time. We pounded
and rolled and beat the pizza dough.
Then we added sauce and cheese.
Mrs. Betty put it in the oven to bake
it for us.
When the pizza was done, guess
what we had for snack? PIZZA!
yum, yum, good.

Bell Middle School Students Read To Break

Guinness World Record, Students Enjoy Event

Captain Hook and Peter Pan may
be archenemies, but the two well
loved characters brought together
an estimated 300,000 Florida middle
school students recently for a com-
mon goal--to set a world record!
Middle school students at Bell
Middle High School joined Gov. Jeb
Bush and thousands of fellow middle
school readers in a simultaneous,
statewide read-aloud of an excerpt
from Peter and the Starcatchers, a
"Peter Pan" prequel by Dave Barry
and Ridley Pearson. The project
was an attempt to break the Guin-
ness World Record for "the largest
number of people reading the same
piece of literature aloud, simul-
taneously, in multiple locations."
Bell Middle/High School students,

teachers, administrators, parents and
staff, many decked out in their best
pirates outfits, entered the auditorium
to await the much anticipated count
As students waited, they were
surrounded by a custom made set
provided by middle school student,
Paul Bloom and his mom, Sandy
Bloom. "I love the way the stage
looks! All of the boats, waves, and
birds make it feel like we are re-
ally part of the book!" said middle
school student, Summer Apple.
Following the almost two minutes
of choral reading, students laughed
and cheered at their success. At the
end of the day all agreed, Great fun
was had by all middle school students
who participated!

Trenton High Schools Middle School Students

Attempt to Break Guinness World Record

Rayanne Ferguson
It all happened right here, Thurs-
day morning in Gilchrist County just
North of the red light on SR 129 in
Trenton Florida. Found within the
walls of Trenton High School's au-
ditorium, were all the middle school
students (grades 6th through 8th) as
well as faculty, staff, administration
and public 'officials, as they joined
270,000 students statewide to read a
passage from the book "Peter and the
Starcatchers" written by Dave Barry
and Ridley Pearson in an attempt to
break the Guinness World Record'""
for the "Most People Reading Aloud
Simultaneously in Multiply Loca-
Mr. Kenrick Thomas, Gilchrist
County Commissioner, District Five
and Mr. Pete Randolph City of Tren-
ton, Mayor, were truly honored as.
they were the official witnesses par-
ticipating in such an awesome event.
They witnessed all middle school stu-
dents signing the affidavits (student
signature was required to show proof


of participation in activity). This one
step, unknown at the time, turned out
to be a very educational part of the
complete procedure. Many students
had never been placed in the position
of being required to sign a paper of
such importance.
This event, Breaking a World Re-
cord: Reading Aloud!, overseen by
the Just Read, Florida! office, was or-
ganized to encourage middle school
students to read. Florida's middle
school students have made signifi-
cant improvements in reading. This
past school year, improvements in
middle school reading tripled that of
any previous single year gain. The
chosen book for this event "Peter
and the Starcatchers" is one of this
year's Sunshine State Young Read-
ers books and is recognized as an
Accelerated Reader book giving the
student the opportunity to earn 13
points on the test. The book is avail-
able in our school library as well as
the surrounding libraries. However,
because of its popularity throughout

I, ns
-, -7.
.' .. -. -


the state of Florida, if you desire to
read this book, you must currently
place your name on the waiting list.

According to Guinness World Re-
cordsT the current record is 155,528
students from 737 schools through-
out the United Kingdom who read
William Wordsworth's poem "Daffo-
dils," on March 19, 2004. On Thurs-
day, September 28, 2006 promptly at
11:00 a.m., state and local officials in
classrooms and libraries across the
state joined middle school students
in breaking the record. The State of
Florida will be notified in approxi-
mately two months as to whether or
not the attempt was successful.
Here's the detailed information...
the webcast began at 11:00 a.m. on
Thursday with Governor Jeb Bush
live at Disney World in Orlando. As
the time drew closer and closer, every-
one in suspense anxiously awaiting
the exact moment to begin, then sud-
denly---the count down 5-4-3-2-1 at
exactly 11:25 a.m. all students began
"Molly's heart leaped as a gray..." in
a chorale reading with Governor Jeb
Bush from the book "Peter and the
Starcatchers". That was it----the mo-
ment everyone had been waiting for,
the sound filled the room. Could you
actually hear the Governor reading?
NO! What was heard? The sounds of
our children proudly reading from the
paper they held in their hands as the
adults stood by in awe as history was
being made. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas stated that this was all amaz-
ing as he stood back to watch our
students read with Governor Bush as
well as the other students at the actual
assembly in Orlando. I believe "Very
organized and impressive." was his
exact statement.
What were they all thinking? What
were the students thinking? What had
just been witnessed? Breaking the
record or not! At this point was it re-
ally important? Gilchrist County had
given our students the opportunity to
be a part of this spectacular event and
everyone left that day knowing that
they too had played an important part
in possibly changing the facts in the
Guinness World Record. How awe-
some is that? There were tears of joy
found among the teachers, staff and
administration. Although the time
was recorded and it would all calcu-
late as being done in less than 10 min-
utes, it would be a moment placed in
their memory forever. It was a very
emotional moment. What would they
remember? Would it be the tune they
heard at 11:25 as all students chimed
in? Would it be the cooperation seen
throughout the crowd? Or... would it
simply be the proof of all those things
placed together at just the right mo-
nient showing us all...OUR CHIL-
A special "Thanks" has been sent
out across Trenton High School cam-
pus to Mrs. Wanda Clemons for her
constant efforts, fliers, updates and
encouragement related to this one
particular activity. Several comments
were made concluding that this took
a lot of planning, not only making ar-

rangements to sign.the affidavits, and
rounding up people to participate.
Mrs. Clemons with the assistance
from Administration Mrs. Lynette
Langford, Principal, Cheri Langford
and Emily Carroll Assistant Princi-
pals, confirmed a teacher would be
placed as a proctor, monitoring 20
children (10 students per row) as
:hey read the passage. They took into
consideration the lunch schedules so
that no class would miss lunch. They
addressed the time frame, noting
the time it would take each class to
cross campus to get to the site at the
right time. They had to make sure
our Technology Coordinator, Aaron
Wiley. and Tom Franks, Technology
Assistant, had everything in place
so Governor Jeb Bush could be seen
and heard during the activity. Teach-
ers assisted by creating,daily student
encouragement. Students were given
the passage several days before the
event to familiarize themselves with
the wording creating self-confidence
for the actual moment. The teach-
ers also encouraged the students to
participate by dressing up as pirates
placing themselves as the characters
mentioned in the book. The middle
school teachers also participated in
the fun as several dressed and sailed
with Captain Vickmeany (Mrs. Vick-
ers) throughout the day creating
laughter everywhere they went.
As Mrs. Langford, THS Principal
said shortly after the event, "Every-
body working together made this
event successful. Thank you all for
making this possible. We are very

appreciative of our faculty and staff
that assisted with the preparation,
special thanks to Mr. Thomas and
Mr. Randolph for taking time out of
their busy schedule to .be witnesses
and we are very, very, proud of all
our students."
If given the opportunity to be a part
of something as important as this has
been to the students, faculty and staff,
Trenton High School will proudly
step up and be accounted for. Way-to
go Trenton!
SO...........Did they make it? Did
they break the record? You'll know
as soon as Trenton Administration
knows --- in two months!!!

dren are our future.
Cloud is the 5th generation of his family to call Gilchrist County home and we are

proven by his experience, community involvement and education.
I know Cloud will work hard to achieve a better working relationship between the

Florida Prepaid College
Board Announces Start
Of 2006-2007 Prepaid
College Plan Enrollment
Florida Prepaid College Plan
Enrollment Opens For 19th
Consecutive Year
Today, the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Board announced the start of
the 2006-07 open enrollment period.
Beginning on Monday, October 16,
2006, Florida families can lock in the
cost of college tuition, local fees and
dormitory housing by enrolling their
children in the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan. To lock in this year's plan
prices, families must enroll by Janu-
ary 31,2007.
The Florida Prepaid College Plan is
the largest program of its kind in the
country, with more than 1.1 million
contracts sold and close to 800,000
eligible children enrolled. For the
19th consecutive year, Florida fami-
lies have an opportunity to provide
their children with a college educa-
tion through timely financial planning
to pay for future college expenses.
in High "Saving for college is one of the
, Justin most important decisions parents
13 year can make for their children's future,
and starting a savings plan early can
make a huge difference in making
college affordable and attainable,"
rain De- states Ted Hoepner, Chairman of the
support Florida Prepaid College Board. "By
oy great enrolling in the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan now, families will not have
n Hogan to worry about tuition increases that
nmunity may occur by the time their children
s'Market enter college."
"The State of Florida and the
Florida Prepaid College Board make
;forone saving for college a convenient and
Easy process," Hoepner continues.
realize Enrollment materials are available in
ymous both English and Spanish. Families
can request enrollment information
by calling 1-800-552-GRAD (4723)
or they may enroll online at florida-
The need for a college degree has
never been more important. On av-
erage, a college graduate makes $1
million more over a lifetime than a
i# person with a high school diploma*.
With the cost of attendance at col-
leges and universities increasing ev-
ery year, the Florida Prepaid College
Plan is a vital tool in putting college
within reach for every Florida child.
The Prepaid College Plan makes the
dream of attending college a reality
", for many Florida families.
". ''In December,'I ll' be the first per-
E! son in my family to graduate from
college," says Liela Chambers, a Pre-
98 paid Plan contract holder and Uni-
98 versity of Florida senior. "Because
S of my Prepaid College Plan, higher
98 education was a possibility and I'll
98. graduate without the burden of seri-
98 ous student loans; for that I'm sin-
cerely grateful to my parents."
98 The Florida Prepaid College Plan
98 is financially guaranteed by the State
of Florida, so it is a safe way to
S save. This year, tuition plan prices
98 start at less than $25 a month for the
98 two-year community college plan
and less than $82 a month for the
98 four-year university plan. The first
88 paymerit is not due until April 2007.
Once enrolled, the plan payments are
98 fixed and will never increase.
98 When your child is ready for col-
98 lege, the Prepaid College Plan will
cover the actual cost of tuition, local
88 fees and dormitory housing at any
88 Florida public university or commu-
98. nity college. And, if your child de-
S cides to attend a private college, an
98 out-of-state college or a vocational/
98 technical school, the value of the plan
may be transferred to any eligible in-
98 stitution. To qualify, the child or the
88 child's parent/guardian must be a
Florida resident. Anyone, including
8 parents, grandparents, friends or even
98 E businesses, can purchase a plan.
88 Enrollment for the Florida Prepaid
SCollege Plan starts October 16 and
98 runs through January 31, 2007. For
88 enrollment information, visit flori-
da529plans.com or call 1-800-552-

98 Camp Blanding Archery
Hunts "Extraordinary
88 Success"
98 The first two archery hunts on the
er Camp Blanding Wildlife Manage-
ment Area's southern portion since
the 2001 terrorist attacks were an
"extraordinary success," according to
I Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) biologists.
I j The hunts took place September
26th-28th and October 3rd-5th in the
area south of State Road 16 which the

National Guard had closed to hunter
access for security reasons.
ue "During these six days of hunting,
more than 125 deer were harvested,"
said Scott Johns, district biologist in
the FWC's Olustee Field Office. "The
hunting was so good, many hunters
were selecting the bucks and letting
S the does walk."
During archery season, hunters on
Camp Blanding can take a buck with
3 points on a side or better, any buck
with antlers less than 5 inches, and
does. It is not legal to take spotted
"There were 17 deer brought

through the check station the first
morning of the hunt," Johns said. "Of
those 17, 15 were bucks. Most were
six points or better, and that's impres-
The area being closed for five years
could explain the hunting success.
"The deer are much less wary of
people because they've not been
hunted. The normal life span of a
deer in a hunted area is six or seven
years. So we have a whole generation
of deer on Camp Blanding's South
Post that have never been hunted by
the public," Johns said.
Many bucks were also in rut,
which is unusual according to the
biologist. Normally the rut peaks the
last two weeks in October in North
"We don't know why the rut is this
strong this early. It's unusual. And
it's not just at Camp Blanding. We
saw deer coming out of Big Shoals
(in Hamilton County) in rut also,"
Johns said.
The first day of archery season,
there were 205 vehicles and 254 peo-
ple who came in through the check
station by noon.
"We anticipated heavy use of the
area, and the hunters showed up in
droves," Johns said. "There were no
major problems on the area during
the hunts. We did have some people
attempt to drive down some closed
roads. We just want to make sure
folks stay on the roads that are open
to public access."
Another tip is to stay out of the im-
pact area which contains unexploded
ordnance, and the surrounding buffer
"When hunting pressure gets this
high, deer may move into the impact
area where no hunting is allowed. We
don't want the hunters chasing the
deer into this area. People could get
seriously injured, and when caught
would be expelled from the WMA,"
Johns said.
More hunts are scheduled for
Camp Blanding: Muzzleloading sea-
son dates are from October 10th-12th
and October 17th-19th. There are
two youth hunts October 7th-8th and
October 21st-22nd. General gun still


"Care for the Entire Fa

hunts (held in still hunt areas 1 and
2) will begin November 18th and go
through January 14th. The general
gun dog hunts, held on the north post
of Camp Blanding, are November
18th-26th and December 23rd-31st.
Spring turkey hunts will be March
19th-25th in the dog hunt area and
March 26th-30th in the archery and

Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County,

I would like to share with you my thoughts on why my husband is the best choice
for County Commissioner, District 4.
I truly know how devoted he is to "Protect our Gilchrist Way of Life". He is
very.committed to listening to our citizens and I hear him answering the phone
daily or he is returning their calls. After severe storms go through the county, we
are out in the truck riding the roads to help in the cleanup of debris for the safety
of the citizens. He not only talks the talk he walks the walk.

Tommy is a Christian man and his faith and devotion
have helped him throughout his life. If a decision is
weighing heavy on his mind and heart, he prays for
God's guidance and direction. There is a sincerity
about Tommy that reflects every day in his actions.
Trustworthy, caring, compassionate are only words
but they describe Tommy's life and personality.
On November 7th, you will be placing your vote and
I sincerely hope that you consider re-electing
Tommy Langford to represent you, as your County
Commissioner in District 4.

Jury Duty Scam
Please pass this on to everyone in
your email address book. It is spread-
ing fast so be prepared should you
get this call. Most of us take those
summons for jury duty seriously, but
enough people skip out on their civic
duty, that a new and ominous kind of
scam has surfaced.
Fall for it and your identity could
be stolen, reports CBS. In this con,
someone calls pretending to be a
court official who threateningly says
a warrant has been issued for your
arrest because you didn't show up
for jury duty. The caller claims to
be a jury coordinator. If you protest
that you never received a summons
for jury duty, the scammer asks you
for your Social Security number and
date of birth so he or she can verify
the information and cancel the arrest
Sometimes they even ask for cred-
it card numbers. Give out any of this
information and bingo! Your identity
just got stolen.
The scam has been reported so
far in 11 states. This (scam) is par-
ticularly insidious because they use
intimidation over the phone to try to
bully people into giving information
by pretending they're with the court
system. The FBI and the federal court
system have issued nationwide alerts
on their web sites, warning consum-
ers about the fraud.

USDA Designates 29
Florida Counties
Natural Disaster Areas
Decision Allows Farmers And
Ranchers To Apily For USDA
The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture has designated 29 Florida coun-
ties primary natural disaster areas
due to losses caused by drought and
strong spring winds that occurred
from March 1,2006, and continuing,
announced Kevin L. Kelley, State Ex-
ecutive Director of the USDA's Farm
Service Agency (FSA) in Florida. All
qualified farm operators in the desig-
nated areas are eligible for low inter-
est emergency (EM) loans from FSA,
provided eligibility requirements are
The primary natural disaster area
counties are: Baker, Bay, Calhoun,
Citrus, Clay, Columbia, Duval, Es-
cambia, Flagler, Gadsden, Gulf, Her-
nando, Holmes, Jackson, Lake, Levy,
Liberty, Marion, Nassau, Okaloosa,
Orange, Pasco, Putnam, Santa Rosa,
St. Johns, Sumter, Union, Walton,
and Washington.
The following counties are also eli-
gible because they are contiguous:
Alachua, Bradford, Brevard, Dixie,
Franklin, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Hill-
sborough, Leon, Osceola, Pinellas,
Polk, Seminole, Suwannee, Volusia,

Georgia are also eligible because they
are contiguous: Alabama: Baldwin,
Covington, Escambia, Geneva and
Houston counties. Georgia: Camden,
Charlton, Clinch, Decatur, Echols,
Grady, Seminole and Ware counties.
All counties listed above were
designated natural disaster areas on
October 4, 2006. Farmers in eligible
counties have eight months from the
date of the declaration to apply for
loans to help cover part of their actual
losses. FSA will consider each loan
application on its own merits, taking
into account the extent of losses, se-
curity available and repayment abil-
ity. FSA has a variety of programs,
in addition to the EM loan program,
to help eligible farmers recover from
USDA has also made other pro-
grams available to assist farmers and
ranchers, including the Emergency
Conservation Program, Federal Crop
Insurance and the Noninsured Crop
Disaster Assistance Program.

requirements and application proce-
dures for these and other programs.

Running To Fund
Scholarships At The
Marine Corps Marathon
Local Participant Running To
Benefit The Marine Corps
Scholarship Foundation
Gregory and Melissa Long, both of
Newberry, Florida, will be running
to support a few good students at the
31st Annual Marine Corps Marathon
on October 29, 2006 in Washington,
The Longs are two of 21 men and
women out of the 34,000 participants
that will run to fund scholarships for
the Marine Corps Scholarship Foun-
dation (MCSF), a charitable organiza-
tion that provides financial assistance

in the form of scholarship grants to
deserving young men and women of
Marines and former Marines in their
pursuit of higher education.
Like the students of the MCSF
who demonstrate a sense of duty to
help others in their communities, the
Longs demonstrate that same genuine
character by running to raise scholar-
ship money in support of the founda-
tion. In addition, each participant is
aiming to raise another $500 that will
be donated directly to the MCSF.
The Marine Corps Marathon is the
5th largest marathon in the United
States and 8th largest in the world,
but stands as the largest marathon
in the world that doesn't offer prize

Breast Cancer Fact
Breast Cancer in the United States
An estimated 212,920 new cases
of invasive breast cancer are expect-
ed to be diagnosed in women in the
United States during 2006. Breast
cancer is the most frequently diag-
nosed cancer in women. In addition
to invasive breast cancer, 61,980 new
cases of in situ (confined to the origi-
nal site) breast cancer are expected
to occur among women during 2006.
An estimated 41,430 breast cancer
deaths (40,970 women and 460 men)
are expected in 2006. Breast cancer
ranks second among cancer deaths in
women (after lung cancer).
Risk Factors: The risk of being
diagnosed with breast cancer in-
creases with age (until age 80). The
primary factors that increase a wom-
an's risk for developing breast can-
cer include certain inherited genetic
mutations (BRCA1 and BRCA2), a
personal or family history of breast
cancer, high breast-tissue density
as seen on mammograms, and bi-
opsy-confirmed hyperplasia. Other
risk factors include a long menstrual
history, obesity after menopause, re-

cent use of oral contraceptives, post-
menopausal hormone therapy, never
having children or having one's first
child after 30, or consumption of one
or more alcoholic beverages per day.
Prevention: At this time, there is
no guaranteed way to prevent breast
cancer, which is why regular mam-
mograms are so important. A wom-
an's best overall preventive health
strategies, besides regular mammo-
grams, are to: Maintain a healthy
body weight, engage in regular
physical activity, reduce alcohol con-
A recent Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA) study
found that exercise improves surviv-
al in women with breast cancer. The
study found that women with breast
cancer who engaged in an amount of
physical activity equivalent to walk-
ing one or more hours per week had
better survival compared with those
who exercised less than that or not at
A Los Angeles Biomedical Re-
search Institute at Harbor-UCLA

menopausal and whose tumors were

Early Detection: Studies show that
early detection, when followed by
appropriate treatment, saves lives
and increases treatment options. The
five-year survival rate for breast can-
cer is 98 percent among individuals
whose cancer has not spread beyond
the breast at the time of diagnosis.
Mammography is especially valuable
as an early detection tool because it
can identify breast cancer at an early
stage, usually before physical symp-
toms develop. American Cancer
Society Recommended Screening
Guidelines; yearly mammograms are
recommended starting at age 40 and
continuing for as long as a woman is
in good health. Clinical breast exams
should be part of a periodic health
exam, about every three years for
women in their 20s and 30s and every
year for women'40 and older. Wom-
en should know how their breasts
normally feel and report any breast
change promptly to their health care
providers. Breast self-exam is an op-
tion for women starting in their 20s.
Women at increased risk (e.g., family
history, genetic tendency, past breast
cancer) should talk with their doctors
about the benefits and limitations of
starting mammography screening
earlier and of having additional tests
conducted (i.e., breast ultrasound and
Treatment: Cancer treatment var-
ies widely depending on the type and
stage of cancer, as well as the age and
medical history of the patient. Treat-
ment for breast cancer may include
surgery (i.e., lumpectomy or mas-
tectomy), chemotherapy, radiation
therapy, and/or hormone therapy.
Patients should discuss treatment
options for the best management of
their breast cancer with their health
care providers. Treatment decisions
are made by the patient and her phy-
sician after consideration of the opti-

Commission Reminds
Hunters Importing
Deer And Elk Carcasses
From Chronic Wasting
Disease States Illegal
It is illegal to bring into Florida'
carcasses of any species of the family
Cervidae (e.g. deer, elk and moose)
from 10 states and one Canadian prov-
ince where chronic wasting disease
S(CWD) has been detected, according
to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC).
The states and Canadian province
where the deadly disease has been
detected are: New Mexico, Utah,
Colorado, Wyoming, South Dakota,
Nebraska, Wisconsin, Illinois, New
York, West Virginia and Alberta,
Canada. Visit the United States De-
partment of Agriculture's Web site at

for the most up-to-date CWD cover-
"To date, no cases of CWD have
been found in Florida," 'said Deer
Program coordinator Robert Vander-
hoof of the FWC's Division of Hunt-
ing and Game Management. "Hunters
can help prevent.the spread of CWD
i ,n Florida by observing the restric-
tions placed on bringing carcasses in
from other areas where the disease
has been detected:"
SCWD, first identified: in Coloa.do
in 1967, is a disease that affects the
central nervous system and is related
to "mad cow" disease in cattle and
scrapie in sheep. The disease always
proves fatal to the infected animal,
but there are no known cases of it be-
ing transmitted to' people, domestic
animals or livestock.
SHunters still can bring back* de-
boned meat from any CWD-affected
region, as well as finished taxidermy
mounts, hides, skulls, antlers and
teeth as long as all soft tissue has
been removed. Whole, bone-in car-
cassesi and parts are permitted to be
brought back to Florida if they were
harvested from non-affected CWD
To report sick or dead deer sus-
pected of having CWD, call the

the world right in the eye; Men who nei-

nor flinch; Men who can have courage
without shouting it; Men in whom the
hope of everlasting life still runs deep arld
strong; Men who know their message and
tell it; Men who know their business ar(d
attend to it; Men who are not too lazy to
work, nor too proud to be poor; Men who
are willing to eat what they have earned
and to wear what they have paid for; Men
who are not ashamed to say No with enl-

Gilchrist Commission
Splits In Favor Of
Urban Development
(Continued from Page Two)
for the Town of Bell. Commissioner
Mitchell Gentry agreed with the mo-
tion with a second. Chairman Tom-
my Langford called for a vote and he
split a 2-2 tie by voting in favor of
the motion. Commissioners Sharon
Langford and Kenrick Thomas voted
against the proposal in favor of urban
"I have talked with residents in
Bell and Fanning Springs involv-
ing Urban Development. Some resi-
dents and elected officials in Fanning
Springs are in favor of some urban
development," Durden explained. He
further explained that the residents,
businesses and community officials
in Bell don't seem to want any urban
development around the communi-
ty at this time. "I'm not in favor of
pushing anything on the Town of Bell
that these people don't want," Com-
missioner Durden explained. "I think
urban development will be a good
thing for Gilchrist County in the fu-
ture," Durden added.
"The Town of Bell appears not
to be ready for urban development,"
Commissioner Tommy Langford ex-
Commissioner Sharon Langford
pointed out that she was not in favor
of urban development until a central
sewage treatment system is in place.
The board directed staff to draft
a proposal that would be considered
for adoption in a future public hear-
ing. The staff explained this proposal
could come back before the Planning
and Zoning Board by the December
2006 meeting.
