County Commission Disagrees That

Water Management District Board

Members Should Be Elected


The Gilchrist County Commission
was asked to support a resolution from
Collier County through the Florida
Association of Counties to amend the
Florida Statutes to require the elec-
tion of Florida Water Management
District Governing Board members.
At this time the board members are
appointed by the governor.
The board discussed the issue
briefly. Commissioner Randy Dur-
den pointed out that the working re-
lationship Gilchrist County has with
the Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District would be difficult to


improve upon. At the present time
the governing board members from
the Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District, a 15-county area do a
good job communicating and having
staff work with each of the counties
and municipalities. Commissioner
Durden made a motion for Gilchrist
County to not adopt Resolution 06-
73 in support of the Collier County
request. Commissioner Mitchell
Gentry supported the action with a
second. The board voted 5-0 in favor
of the motion.


Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen told the board that if
the governing board became an elect-
ed body, he felt that the county would
not get the same level of service that
they currently receive. He added that
if the governing board became an
elected body, they would then be-
come a board that would serve and
receive an annual salary. At the pres-
ent time, the governing board mem-
bers of the five water management
districts in the sunshine state do not
receive a salary for their services.

County candidates Questionnaire


By Anna Wild
Yes, Election Day is Tuesday,

information may help you in your.de-
cision making to go to the polls and
vote for one of these candidates.
Here are interviews with Tommy
Langford and John Rance Thomas,


County Commission District Four
County Commission candidate
interview with, John Rance Thomas:
Q. What made you decide to run
for the County Commissioners posi-
tion?
A. My grandfather was a County
Commissioner; my dad was in poli-
tics in the 80's. The Commissioner
that held District 4, Jimmy Sheffield,
decided not to run and I decided if
I was going to ever get into politics
that was the time. That was in '98, I
vas fortunate enough to get elected
and served my 4 years, and then I got

candidates for County Commissioner
in District Four; Connie Douglas-
Sanchez and Bill Martin, candidates
for Supervisor of Elections; and Lucy
Swilley and Cloud Haley, candidates
for Gilchrist School Board member
District 1.


County Commission candidate
interview with Tommy Langford:
Q. You are currently the County
Commissioner for District 4. What
originally made you run for the posi-
tion?
A. I had a lot of people encour-


age me to do it, I guess because I had
been involved in the community, and
of course I have a love for Gilchrist
County. I have a love for the people
here, I have a lot of family here and
my kids went to Bell, I went to Tren-
ton for a little while growing up. My
grandson goes to school here, I just
love Gilchrist County and intend to
spend the rest of my life here and I
love getting involved with trying
to organize and promote and direct
things in the right direction.

Q. What are your plans in the fu-
ture if you are re-elected?
A. I think what we have to do, and
I think were on the right track, is plan
for the future. The projections which
may come true, may not, we know
the real estate market has cooled off,
but the projection is for us to have
another 10 or 12 thousand more resi-
dents in the next 12 to 15 years. So
we have to plan for that. We have to
look at the overall infrastructure on
how we can set this infrastructure up
and plan for that and put it in place so
that when we do have this influx of
residents, which we're still having to
a certain degree, there's approximate-
ly 1,000 people a day move into the
state of Florida. We want to maintain
our way of life but at the same time

Lake City Community

College To Open

Gilchrist Center


Tuesday, October 17th, was a land-
mark day for Lake City Commu-
nity College (LCCC) and Gilchrist
County. Gilchrist County School
Board members, School Board Su-
perintendent Buddy Vickers, As-
sistant Superintendent Instructional
Services and LCCC District Board
of Trustees Chairperson James Sur-
rency gathered with LCCC President
Charles W. Hall, LCCC Vice Presi-
dent Instruction and Student Services
Charles E. Carroll, and other college
and district personnel to officially
"cut the ribbon" and establish the
new LCCC Gilchrist Center.
The new center is conveniently lo-
cated on Bell Avenue between Bell
High School and Bell Elementary
School and is housed in the former
"Bell Full Service Center." LCCC
officials plan to have the center open,
staffed, and operational for classes
beginning in January 2007. In the
coming months, as more information


and news develops about the center,
look for updates in your hometown
newspaper.
Ronnie Smith, school board mem-
ber District 3, said, "The new center
marks great changes in the county's
future working with the college to
see that our young people grow and
mature into fine young adults."
Carroll indicated the college even-
tually anticipates at least two to three
fully equipped classrooms in the cen-
ter. The college's vision includes the
establishment of a distance learning
classroom that could accommodate
20-25 students in a class. In addi-
tion to having teachers present in
the classrooms, distance learning ca-
pabilities and technology will allow
students to take classes in "real time"
taught by an instructor on the Lake
City campus and delivered to the
center by interactive television.
Also on the planning board is a

Circuit Court Judge, Peter Sieg,
on Thursday, October 19, sentenced
Trenton man, Joseph Sims, Jr., 19,
to five years in prison and 10 years
probation. Sims had been charged in
three robbery cases. During two of
the robberies Sims injured his vic-
tims.
The first occurred on October 31,
2005 when Sharon Schultz of Bell
had her purse snatched. Mrs. Schultz
was unharmed during the robbery.
Sims was charged with Robbery by
Sudden Snatching.
The second robbery took place on
November 18, 2005 when Trenton
resident Gray Schofield was walking


on Southwest First Street. Mr. Scho-
field was robbed and beaten very
badly. It was reported that he was
beaten in the head by a concrete yard
ornament and also a cinder block.
Mr. Schofield was hospitalized and
underwent 3 surgeries to his brain
because of the injuries he received.
It was reported that Judge Sieg told
Sims that his beating Mr. Schofield
in the head was completely unneces-
sary to commit the robbery. Sims was
charged with Felony Battery and At-
tempted Robbery.
The third robbery took place in the
daytime on November 22, on North-


east First Street in Trenton. Mrs. Pat
Yost of Trenton was robbed and in-
jured when Sims snatched her purse
and she fell down in the process. Mrs.
Yost suffered damage to her face as
a result of the incident. Sims was
charged with Robbery by Sudden
Snatching in this case.
Sims confessed to the robberies
to Trenton Police Chief Billy Smith
and his plea was entered on October
5, 2006. Mr. Sims has spent almost
a year in jail since he confessed and
was arrested. This time will be count-
ed toward his 5 year sentence accord-
ing to the States Attorney's Office.


Sylvia Arthur Demonstrates

Patience As Featured Character


Council Personality


by Geneva Cornwell
Having the privilege of speaking
with remarkable Gilchrist County cit-
izens is such an honor for this author,
for in doing so, I am able to see the
heart of each one who is interviewed;
an individual whose greatest desire
is to look beyond themselves with a
caring attitude toward the needs of
others.
Recently I had that privilege by
way of a telephone conversation with
Mrs. SylviaArthur. Mrs. Arthur came
to Gilchrist County in 1999 from
North Carolina by way of Maryland.
She and her husband, John, left five
children and 13 grandchildren to seek
a higher ground of service to others
right here in our area. In 2003, Sylvia
joined the Gilchrist Volunteers and is
also a trained Hospice volunteer.
Highlighting the quality of patience
this month, Mrs. Arthur is truly one
that demonstrates the trait, for she
has learned to accept difficult situa-
tions without giving a deadline to re-
move them. Patience seems to be her

Comments
By: John M. Ayers

By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Journal has
been paying the United States Post
Office to deliver the Journal on a
weekly basis for more years than I
have been alive.
This past week the Journals that
were labeled and bagged and sup-
posed to be dropped off in the High
Springs Post Office went missing
on Thursday, October 19. The High
Springs Postmaster did not receive
the bagged newspapers on Thursday
morning on the regular mail delivery,
so the subscribers did not receive
their October 19 edition in the mail.
The subscribers began to call the
office in Trenton, so I in turn called
the Trenton Postmaster to ask Don
to find out what had happened to the
High Springs papers. He told me that
he would call me back as soon as he
had more information.
On Monday we received a call to
let us know that the papers marked
for delivery to High Springs had
been delivered to Jacksonville since
Wednesday night and they were in
High Springs on Monday morning. I
was not able to get any more informa-
tion that that, other than the subscrib-
ers in HIigh Springs would receive the
paper in their mailbox on Monday.
I spoke with a subscriber that lives
in High rSprings :add'he told me that"
the paper on Monday would not do
him any good, "it is old news by
now" he explained. I agreed with
him and tried to explain that we have


to send the newspapers through the
Post Office because we have no other
choice. He then explained that he
was just going to have to start pick-
ing up the paper on Wednesday af-
ternoon from one of the newsstands
in Bell or Newberry. I again tried to
explain that I was sorry, but when we
put the papers in the postal shipping
containers on Wednesday afternoon,
the delivery is out of our hands. We
are just required to make sure that the
Trenton Post Office has the check for
payment.
Several years ago, the Ayers fam-
ily decided to begin having the Jour-
nals mailed out in the most up-to-
date type delivery that was suppose
to eliminate the problems involving
subscribers receiving their newspa-
per. Well, the new postal carrier route
pre-sort sounded good, but this sys-
tem too has its faults.
The Journal staff will continue to
strive to get the newspapers to the
post office on a timely manner every
Wednesday afternoon and we hope
that the post office can get the sub-
scribers their newspapers as soon as
possible.
If you fail to receive the paper
from the post office or on the postal
route, please give us a call at (352)
463-7135 or send me an email at Gil-
christjournal@bellsouth.net.

Just Southern
By Cindy Jo Ayers


Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
A cursory look at Wall Street's cur-
rent performance shows that the Dow
Jones industrial average has been in
record territory of late, hitting that
psychologically important 12,000
level.
However, lest you become too in-
toxicated with unbridled enthusiasm,
please remember that there have been
great times, good times and some
not-so-good times on Wall Street.
Nonetheless, over the years I have
reached the conclusion that it is more
difficult to lose money investing ,in
stocks than it is to make money.
Virtually anyone can invest suc-
cessfully. There are literally dozens
of well-known, high quality blue
chip, companies with a long history
of earnings and dividend growth with
which anyone can build a solid port-
folio. No, you will not become anoth-
er Warren Buffett next week but you
will enjoy steady investment gains
over time.
With your foundation in place, you
can move on to some high quality
small cap companies that will enable
you to achieve higher returns in a
somewhat shorter time period, keep-
ing in mind that risk and return go
hand-in-hand.
Small cap companies, those com-
panies whose market capitalization

computer lab that will eventually
house approximately 20 laptop com-
puters with Internet access. Equipping
the center with the latest teaching and
learning technology is a high prior-
ity for LCCC. Classes will be added
on a continuing basis after January 2,
2007, as the college develops the cur-
riculum and installs the appropriate
equipment to offer the courses.
Carol Buck, schoolg ,?#rq:member,
District 5, stated "The newy center
will allow people access to a higher
education that otherwise would not
have the. opportunity due to barriers
such as transportation. This is a great,
way to retire from the board knowing
that people in Gilchrist, Dixie, and
Levy counties will now have this op-
portunity."
President Chuck Hall said this is a
dream of the college's that has finally
come to fruition and that he antici-
pates a long, successful relationship
between the college and surrounding
counties.
Gary Rexroat, school board mem-
ber District 1, summed up the open-
ing of the center by stating, "To have
a college campus in a small district
with access to a great academic ex-
perience for students will have a
tremendous economic impact on the
county." As well, he feels that the
center will have a cultural impact on
the community and looks forward to
the establishment of a true college
campus of "bricks and mortar!"

Church Is Not Like It Used To Be
(Kent Heaton)


SGoing to church is not like it used to be. Church
services have turned into places of entertainment and frolic
and high pitched computer generated displays of
excitement, energy and temporal feelings of self worth.
Auditoriums are filled with choral groups arrayed in
splashing displays of sparkling gowns with sound systems
that generate twenty-seven million decibels of sound
reverberating through the expanse of overflow crowds
riveted with spiritual fervor. Bands fill the sanctuary with
guitars, drums, brass, string and a host of instruments
gauged with the onslaught of entertaining the masses.
Power enthusiasm is the order of worship.
Going to church is not like it used to be. Church
services have turned into places where you can "come as
you are." The dress code for worship is whatever inakes
one comfortable. Bare feet are now acceptable, shorts and
tee-shirts and casual apparel as if one is going to the ball
park, fishing or relaxing around the house. Church services
are created to be as "dressed down as possible.
Going, to church is not like it used to be. Church
services have turned into places of social fellowship where
one can find spaghetti, cake,, hamburgers, hotdogs, fried
chicken, sweet tea, pies, fruitcakes and pizza. The incense
of coffee wafts through the halls with enticing appeal to
doughnuts and sweet rolls. Crowds are appealed to through
conversion of the stomach with fork in hand.
Going to church is not like it used to be. Church
services have turned into places where preaching the Bible
is replaced with preaching the "feel good about yourself
and no one sins anymore" kind of sophistry lacking
conviction and devotion on any level. The grit of scripture
is replaced with a veneer of soothing enticements to


indulge the peaceful hearts filled to the brim with
worldliness and covetousness.
In the days of Jeroboam king of Judah, "the king took
counsel, and made two calves of gold and said to them,
'It is too much for you to go up to Jerusalem'" (1 Kings
12:28). What Jeroboam was afraid of was the people of the
Northern tribes would go to Jerusalem to worship at the
Temple, their hearts would turn against him and the people
would rise up and kill him. To keep the people under his
rule, he set up two calves of gold in Bethel and Dan for
them to worship. It became convenient and more appealing
to the people. Who wants to trudge all the way to
Jerusalem? This religion of ease was to make the people
happy and enjoy worship to "God." How convenient they
would not have to be bothered by anything as tedious as
going all the way to Jerusalem. They wanted to enjoy life
and have fun and be entertained.
The spirit of Jeroboam abounds today in modem
religion. Everyone wants to have things convenient for
them. Power enthusiasm, come-as-you-are dress codes,
food in abundance and feel good religion has turned the
Bible into nothing more than a dusty library of sixty-six
books out of date and out of time with modern man.
Leaving the Bible, modem religion worships at the altars of
Bethel and Dan. We need prophets like Ahijah who will
declare the pure message of God (1 Kings 14). Anything
less is rebellion. "But go now to My place which was in
Shiloh, where I set My name at the first, and see what I
did to it for the wickedness of My people Israel" (Jeremiah
7:12). "Not everyone who says to Me, Lord! Lord! shall
enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he who does the will of
My Father in Heaven" (Matthew 7:21).

tiplied by the share price) is less than
a billion dollars, are always popu-
lar because they are the race cars
of Wall Street. They can shift gears
and change direction with a minimal
effort as they find holes in the pack
that others have not seen or cannot fit
into.
Nonetheless, any small cap strate-
gy is not without risk. Financial Data
is less abundant and the punishment
for not doing your homework can be
quite severe.
This week we will once again re-
view some of the pitfalls of small
caps. Then, at the request of numer-
ous readers, over the next several
weeks we, will again explore some
solid small cap companies.
In dealing with small caps, you
want to look for companies that ex-
cel at keeping costs low and have a
solid strategic plan designed around a
patented core technology, or a highly
visible brand.
Always investigate a company's
relationship with its suppliers. Sup-
pliers that readily advertise their re-
lationship with a company are happy
suppliers. Fears regarding a compa-
ny's relationship with its suppliers,
regardless of validity, will often lead
Wall Street to discount a company's
stock. The same logic applies to cus-
tomers.
Are there any signs of acrimonious
behavior or discord among the execu-
tives? Be on the lookout for inconsis-
tent statements that signal corporate
confusion. While it might be to your,
advanitae in the end, remember that
successful small caps are always sub-
ject to being acquired.
One problem often found in small
cap companies is a lack of sufficient
capital. You need to scrutinize the fi-
nancials of any company, but this is
especially true of small caps.
At a minimum, you should scan
past financial press releases. Look for
unexplained changes in financial ac-
counting measures such as margins.
An increase in margins will usually
signal an increase in share price.
However, any accounting change
begs for more in-depth analysis. If
you cannot do it yourself, get some
assistance.

nist Lauren Rudd at 5 Gulf Manor

I-


Last week my mother and I took a
little trip north to visit Kentucky. Af-
ter seeing the Museum of the Ameri-
can Quilter's Society in Paducah last
fall I just had to take my mother. We
both had a wonderful time at the
museum viewing the most beautiful
quilts anywhere.
The leaves were really doing their
thing and we were dazzled by the
beautiful autumn colors. Hard wood
trees cover much of the hills and
mountains in Kentucky and Tennes-
see. They don't have so many pines
there like we have here. Those hard-
wood trees up there are sure beautiful
this time of year.
We drove through miles and miles
of cotton in Alabama and many fields
of soybeans in Kentucky. We also
saw several old tobacco barns with
stalks of tobacco hanging in them.
There is just something real special
about an old weathered barn or acres
of cotton bolls ready to be harvested.
I'm not sure if everyone likes to drive
through ag land as much as I do or


not? It could just be the farmer's
daughter coming out in me.
The quilt museum was featuring a
display of quilts made to commemo-
rate the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
The expedition took place from 1803
to 1806 so this is the 200th anniversa-
ry of the expedition. Paducah played
a part in the expedition because on
November 10, 1803 the Corps of Dis-
covery camped below the mouth of
the Cumberland River. On November
11 the keelboat and pirogues (small
boat similar to a canoe) passed the
confluence of the Ohio and Tennes-
see Rivers at what is now Paducah.
In 1803 the area was part of Ken-
tucky, but it was wilderness with Na-
tive Americans and trappers passing
through but there were not permanent
residents or a town. The land:where
Paducah is today belonged to George

tionary War.
In Paducah they have huge
concrete floodwalls in the historic
downtown area. On these walls are
murals that depict the history of the
area. These murals are wonderful
and make learning part of the state's
history very interesting. If you ever
visit Paducah don't miss these walls
even if you don't care about visiting a
bunch of quilts, see the walls.
Fall is a wonderful time of year
and one of the best parts are fall
foods such as fresh mustard greens,
sugar cane, pecans, sweet potatoes
and freshly baked pies. Hmmm, how
about a Pumpkin Roll? I haven't had
one in a couple of years but I sure
do like them. The following recipe
comes from Dorothy Carter who
lives in the Curryville area southwest
of Chiefland. Dorothy and my mother
have been friends for as long as I can
remember. Dorothy is like a breath of
sunshine in all our lives and I don't
know what we would do without her,
the good Lord has sure blessed our
family with very special friends.
Pumpkin Roll
Beat 3 eggs (5 minutes). Gradu-
ally add 1 cup of sugar, 1 teaspoon


lemon juice, and stir in 2/3 cup pump-
kin (I use canned pumpkin).
Combine in a small bowl:
3/4 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ginger
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
Fold in pumpkin mixture into
above ingredients, then pour into well.
greased and floured large pan (jelly
roll pan or large sheet cake pan).,
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes.
When you take the hot cake out
of the oven turn it out on a dish towel
that has been sprinkled with pow-
dered sugar. Roll up towel jellyroll
fashion and let cool.
Filling
1 8-ounce cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 cup chopped nuts .
Beat all ingredients together.
After cake has cooled unroll it
and spread the filling inside. Re-roll
the cake and filling and wrap in foil.
Cake should be refrigerated until
time to serve.
This recipe is good made a day
in advance.

American Legion Airs
While Wayne is away this weekend attending the American Legion Fall
Conference, I am going to briefly post a few reminders to our members and the
communities of Post 149 in Newberry and Post 91in Trenton. Hopefully, when he
returns next week he'll have some news from our Department of Florida to share with
us.
All, members of Post 149 are reminded that their General Membership meeting
will be on November 7th at 7 pm. Your attendance is encouraged to discuss and vote
on the raising of membership dues due to the increase announced by our National
Organization. Also, I understand that a couple of minor changes to the unit bylaws are
in need of your attention and you should come out and hear about them, voice your
opinion and cast your vote.
Post 91 met in General Membership on October 19th and voted to increase their
annual dues to $30. per year. When you think about all the legion does for our
veterans, that's a bargain at today's costs.
The primary purpose of the American Legion is to attend to our disabled veterans.
In addition, legionnaires become involved with numerous projects surrounding
holidays throughout the year. The American Legion has asked that posts consider
involving themselves with supporting our active duty personnel through a program
know as AdoptaPlatoon Soldier Support Effort. This year the Auxiliary and Post 91
have decided to support this worthwhile program by making and filling Christmas
stockings. I am happy to report that the Auxiliary had a workday on Saturday and
produced 25 Christmas stockings ready for this year's mailing to our troops. We are
proud to be able to give something to our soldiers who are serving to let them know
that we care, especially at this time of year. Congratulations President Miriam Stroupe
and all the ladies who pushed to get this important project done. The stockings will be
packed and mailed out in the next week. Great job!
Friday, November 10, 2006, Trenton will have a Veterans Day Parade. The
Gilchrist County Historical Society has agreed to provide hamburgers and hot dogs
immediately following the parade at the Trenton Train Depot. This year our Grand
Marshal will be former US Army soldier and Purple Heart recipient Candace May. As
many of you know, she was injured in the war in Iraq and we are so very pleased and
honored to have her be part of our parade in honor of our veterans. Be a part of that
parade to honor our Nation's Veterans. If your church, other civic organization or
school wants to have a presence or a float in the Parade, contact Major Stroupe at the
Gilchrist County Veterans Service Office, 352-463-3188, from Monday through
Thursday to see what you can do. Lineup for the parade will be at 9 AM in the Trenton
High School parking lot. Make this a community parade to tell our Veterans how
proud we are of their service to our Nation.
Post 91 has the distinction to open the Down Home Days celebration, November
11th, Veterans Day at 9 AM. Be at the front gate when it opens and follow the color
guard in to post the colors in honor of our veterans. We want to thank the Gilchrist
Chamber of Commerce for asking us to do this in honor of our veterans. Post 91 will
have two booths set up this year; one to provide legion information and raffle donated
items and the other is a funnel cake booth, both in support our community programs.
We look forward to your attendance and participation in this event as well.
Here at home, your local American Legion Posts need your help. Help with the
programs, help with veterans' assistance, help with fund raising, in other words, help
with just about everything. Your American Legion members are still Serving America.
Get involved with them. Remember our Armed Forces each day in your thoughts and
prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows and the
families of those called to active duty, helping out whenever and however you can.
For God and Country
Major Stroupe
Service Officer

AARP Meeting
On Tuesday, October 17th, AARP
held its monthly meeting at the Tren-
ton Community Center.
If you missed this meeting, you
missed a chance to personally meet
and hear from the candidates that are
running for office in Gilchrist Coun-
ty. We were very happy that so many
candidates took time from their busy
schedule to show up. This meeting
gave us a chance to put a face with
a name. Also, during lunch we had
the opportunity to speak one-on-one
about some of our concerns for the
upcoming years.
A special THANKS to Sable Bol-
ing, Director and Administrator of
the Gilchrist/Dixie County Health
Departments, and to her assistant
Brian Hauser. She spoke and gave a
slide presentation on Pandemic Flu
and told us of the many ways of pre-
cautions and preparations to be taken
in the event of an outbreak.
Again this year, AARP will have a
booth at Down Home Days on No-
vember llth from 9:00 a.m.-3:00
p.m.. Please stop by and show your
support for our chapter.
Next month will be our annual
Thanksgiving Dinner on November
21st. The chapter will supply the tur-
key and all attending members are
asked to bring "the fixins." Hope to
see you there.
PLEASE REMEMBER TO VOTE
on or before NOVEMBER 7th.
YOUR VOTE DOES COUNT!!!!!

Trenton Commissioners,
Thank You
Big thanks to the Trenton Commis-
sion for expanding use of the Depot
again. The place is ideal for musi-
cians with a minimum of hassle for
everybody.
Saturday I caught part of the young
rockers' show and it was a fun ef-
fort. Best part is the Depot shows are
free.
Every Tuesday afternoon local
musicians perform atthe Farmers'
Market so bring over a chair and en-
joy the open mike at 2:00 p.m. At
3:00 p.m. there is band, with a vari-
ety of music styles.
Pass the word because musicians
love an audience. With the number of
retirees in Trenton there is no excuse
for a small crowd.
Jean Wonser

To be upset over WIhat you don' t'have
is to waste what you do have.

Trunk-N-Treat To Be
Held In Chiefland On
October 28
Looking for a safe alternative to
trick-or-treating? Not getting excited
about going door-to-door for hours
while your young goblin tries to fill
up a candy sack? Want to see some-
thing different?
The First United Methodist Church
of Chiefland, right on US 19, is host-
ing its 2nd annual Trunk-N-Treat on
Saturday, October 28. Everyone is
invited whether bringing children to
go from trunk-to-trunk or bring your
decorated trunk and give out candy.
Last year there were about 26 ve-
hicles (and drivers) decorated for the
occasion and nearly 1000 kids came
through for a visit and to get the bags
filled with candy. There will be a hay
ride and sodas and baked goods will
be for sale for the parents wanting to
wait on the side lines. Last year there
were kids from Bronson, Trenton,
Cross City, as well as, Chiefland.
We ask that vehicles participating
arrive and set up by 6:00 p.m. The
actual event will be open to the kids
at 6:30 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m.


Look for the large Frankenstein head
for the entrance. There will also be a
Pumpkin Patch in the field, so come
a couple weeks earlier and purchase
your pumpkins.

(Youth Specialist) or Michele Bell
(Children's Coordinator) at (352)

Foundation


A large crowd of area residents

for that reason. Maggie McQueen and
Michael Keffer of the Lupus Foun-
dation of America, Greater Florida
Chapter, Inc. attended the event.
Michael McElroy of Trenton was

family came from near and far to par-
ticipate in the yearly event. Barbecue
dinners were served and cookbooks
were sold to raise funds. Also a raffle
was held for jewelry and a gun. Mr.
Tommy Dean of Bronson was the
auctioneer for a beautiful quilt made

quilt featured the purple ribbons used
as a logo by the Lupus Foundation..

said today, boaters who comply with
manatee speed zones won't get cita-
tions if they strike manatees.
Officials said cooler weather will
cause manatees to begin their an-
nual migration from open water to
warm-water springs and power plant
discharges, leaving the slow-moving
sea cows vulnerable to speeding and
even slow-moving vessels.

Law-abiding boaters who strike
a manatee or observe a manatee hit
by another vessel can call the FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline at 1-888-404-
3922 without fear of a citation. Boat-
ers should be prepared to provide the
incident location, weather conditions,
boat specifications and other relevant
information.
FWC will attempt to recover, and
if possible, rehabilitate the animal.
"We want to assure boaters who op-
erate vessels lawfully and responsi-
bly that they should not feel reluctant
to report accidental collisions with
manatees," FWC executive director
Ken Haddad said. "The information
we gather from reported accidents
can help guide manatee conservation
efforts in the future."
In addition, Haddad said, prompt
response to an accident may increase
the chance of success in attempts to
rescue and care for the injured animal
and eventually return it to the wild.
"People who disregard the law
must be held accountable, but we un-
derstand that people operating their
boats responsibly and legally may
accidentally hit manatees," FWS re-
gional director Sam Hamilton said.
"We will treat accidents as what they
are accidents. We hope boaters will
report them to us so we have a chance
to rescue the animal and a chance to
learn more about how to protect the
species."
Collisions with boats are a signifi-
cant source of injury and mortality in
manatees.

Watch Your Words
Keep watch on your words, my dar-

They are sweet like bee's fresh hon-
ey, like bees they have terrible stings.
They can bless, like the warm, glad
sunshine and brighten a lonely life:
;they can.cut in the bitter contest 'lke
and open, two-edged knife.
'Keep them back if they're cold and
cruel, Under bar and lock and seal;
the wounds they make, my darlings,
are always slow to heal. May peace
guard your lives and ever, from the
time of your earthly youth; May the
words that you daily utter, be the
words of grace and truth.

lead before intermission on a 1-yard
toi.chdo\%' n rn. Bryan Capps added,
the extra point kick to give the Tigers
a 45-6 lead.
The crowning of the Homecom-

she joined Jesse Morrison the home-
coming king in a photo.

Don't tell me what you will do

me what you did today to ease a
load of care.
Don't tell me what you will

Teacher Cadet News
The teacher cadets have been very
busy this year. They have performed
their big -books and puppet shows
at Trenton Elementary School for
Pre-K and kindergarten students. The
themes of these projects were self es-
teem.
They also did their classroom ob-
servations in grades K-5. We are very
fortunate to have so many helpful
and encouraging teachers in Gilchrist
county who will allow the cadets to
come into their classrooms and ob-
serve.
The cadets just finished an adoles-
cent literature project and are begin-
ning their middle school and high
school observations.

Sticking
There was a little postage stamp no
bigger than your thumb; But still it,
stuck right on the job until its work,
was done. They licked it and they
pounded it "Til it would make you-
sick." But the more it took a lickin'
why the tighter it would stick. So,
friend, let's be like the postage stamp
.in playing life's rough game; and just
keep on a-sticking though we hide'
our heads in shame. For the stamp
stuck to the letter "Til it saw it safe-
ly through." There's no one could'
do better; let's keep sticking and be'.
true.

Home Top Honors

Stephanie Deane, Elyse Fowler, Matt White and Ulrica Diamond
celebrating with the rest of the Powerhouse Band members on their
honors.

members and supporters.


Purple Powerhouse
Brings Home Top
Honors
With Marching Bands attending
from as far away as Jacksonville,
Orlando, New Smyrna Beach, Cape
Coral and Pinellas County, the Bell
High School Marching Band well
represented the school, the Town
of Bell and Gilchrist County.at the
Ocala Marching Festival this past
Saturday.
In the heat and humidity of the Sat-
urday afternoon, the Purple Power-
house Marching Band took the crowd
back to the tumultuous co-existence
of love and war during the "Suite
60's." The program included "Joy
to the World," "Sound of Silence,"
and "Let the Sun Shine" in the Age
Of Aquarius. After their performance
the Band watched the remaining
Bands and waited anxiously for the
5:00 p.m. awards ceremony. The
wait was worth it.
Bell Marching Band received Ex-
cellents in Drum Major, Flag Team
and Percussion. They received Supe-
riors in Brass, Marching and Maneu-
vering and General Effects. They re-
ceived Distinguished in Woodwinds.
The Band also received trophies for
'"Best in Class" for Brass, Wood-
winds, Marching and Maneuvering
and General Effect. That would not


be the end of the excitement for the
Band as they received 1st place in
Class 2AA, and received 2nd Run-
ner-up for Overall Bands.
The Band, which had been quietly
reserved up to that point, went crazy
with excitement and even a few par-
ents could be seen crying for joy.
The Bell Band wishes to thank the
parents, families, current and former
band students who traveled to West-
port High School to support the Band
in their efforts.
The Bell Marching Band will com-
pete this Saturday at the Santa Fe
High School Marching competition
in Alachua. Scheduled performance
time is 11:00 a.m. The awards cer-
emony will be approximately:, :0Q
p.m. At the end of the ceremior'n th
top 10 marching units will be asked
to return at 7:00 p.ii. to comjpete 'in
first through tenth place.
If the Purple Powerhouse March-
ing Band should make the cut, Band
students will be required to stay on
the grounds of Santa Fe High School
until the start of the 7:00 p.m. Com-
petition. The Bell Band boosters will
provide dinner during this period.
Band students should plan on bring-
ing money for lunch and snacks.
We invite all Band parents, stu-
dents, Band alumni and the commu-
nity to come out Saturday and support
our musical and marching efforts.

The Bell Bulldogs had to play tough

The Bulldogs experienced several

25-yard run into the end zone to tie
the game at 12-12. With 3:50 left in

extra point for the Warriors to give
the host a 13-12 lead at intermission.
Bell's Justin Fowler got the Bull-

a touchdown. Devin Taylor's extra
point kick was on the mark as the
Bulldogs went back into the lead 19-
13. Eagle View's Elvin Jewell threw
a 35-yard pass to Josh Gray for a
Warriors' touchdown to tie the game
at 19-19.

Happiness
Take a heaping cup of PATIENCE,
And a big heartful of LOVE;
Add two handful of GENEROSITY
To all of the above;
Then blend in a dash of LAUGHTER
And some UNDERSTANDING, too;
Sprinkle generously with KIND-
NESS and MEMORIES, old and
new;
Add a lot of FAITH and mix well to
make it rich and sweet,
And enjoy a heaping portion
With everyone you meet.

Bell High School
JROTC Competitions
The Bell High School JROTC
has been very busy during the past
few weeks. Experienced, as well as
brand new cadets, have been training
for these events. We have competed
numerous teams at the Crescent City
and Taylor County Drill Meets. At
school, the first Cadet and Leader of
the Quarter Board were also held.
Many cadets traveled to Crescent
City, Florida on September 23rd to
compete in the Crescent City Drill
Meet. The cadets, some this being
their first meet, kept their composure
and did a great job throughout the
competition. The teams that compet-
ed included: Raider Challenge, Aca-
demics, LET 1 Drill, Color Guard,
and Unarmed Squad Drill. The teams
were very successful; we placed first
in the Academics and Raider Chal-
lenge divisions and second place in
Color Guard competition. Congratu-
latioris cadets for giving such an out-
standing performance at the meet!
On October 4th, the Bell JROTC
went to Perry, Florida to compete in
the Fall Taylor County Drill Meet,
held at the Taylor County High
School. Teams were represented
in each of the following categories:
Color Guard, LET 1 Drill,. Unarmed
Squad Drill, and the Cadet Challenge
competition. The results of the meet
were: LET 1 Drill and the participa-
tors of the Cadet Challenge placed
second and the Color Guard and Un-
armed Squad placed third. Good job
to all cadets who competed!
The Bell JROTC has also held its
first Cadet and Leader of the Quarter
Board. The board consisted of ques-
tions about current events, drill and
ceremony, and first aid. Several ca-
dets competed before the two boards,
one cadet and one leader stood out

S SPRINGHOUSE QUILTERS


Faith Stanton holds a quilt she made using large circle templates from


the Drunkard's Path.


Springhouse Quilters
News
There are so many things that
quilters can do to make small and
large quilts using their imagination
and by either enlarging or decreasing
the size of a pattern. One of the older
patterns known in all quilting circles
is the Drunkard's path. This pattern
can be used to make over 50 different
quilting blocks which when viewed
in the-various blocks is hard to be-
lieve that one pattern can be adapted
so many times. This is a great pattern
to use to learn to quilt since it teaches
a quilter how to get curves properly
set into a quilt pattern. This is one of
the patterns Springhouse uses in the
beginning quilting class.
The beginning, quilting classes
are usually held in the early spring
each year and for 2007 are now be-
ing planned for those new members
needing a class. The teachers are all
members of Springhouse and have
great experience, in aMking the dif; r
ferent quilt blocks
jThe November regular monthly
meeting of Springhouse will be held
on November 14th, beginning at 9:00
a.m. for the day group and at 6:45
p.m. for the night group. The October
workshop is being taught by Gloria
Sutton.
Several Springhouse members at-
tended the White Springs Quilt Show
held last week in White Springs. They
all reported they had a great time and
enjoyed seeing so many quilts from
area quilters.
For information about Springhouse
Quilters, contact Anna Gilliam, 463-
7922 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Clean Up At The Santa
Fe River November 4th
We will have a bottom cleanup on
November 4th at the Santa Fe River
from the Gilchrist landing roughly
a mile downstream. Apparently the
reach of river fromn'this landingtlbthd
47 bridge was the summer of 2006
great tubing run, and it is a mess.
This is a snorkeling cleanup as well
as a canoe cleanup. We will need
both kinds of volunteers -- those in
the water and those helping in canoes
or on land. Lots of folks are help-
ing out to make this one a big suc-
cess. We have one jon boat, and if
one of you has a skiff or jon boat,
give me a call. We could use another.
There will also be a cookout at lunch
time for cold and hungry volunteers.
Please consider coming to help with
this cleanup. The river needs you!
Hope to see you at the Ichetucknee
on Saturday

Tommy Langford
(Continued from Page One)
you have to plan for that growth.
Unplanned growth is terrible, planned
growth I think can be great but it has
to be built upon and-planned for. We
can't look at a 1 to 3 years; we've got
to look at a 15 to.20 years.

Q. What do you feel are the ma-
jor issues or greatest challenge facing
our county today?
A. Growth is probably the big-
gest issue as far as facing our county.
Were losing our agricultural commu-
nity that we grew up with, but that's
nationwide. Agriculture business is
hard to make a living now, a days.
Land values have made it even harder
to try to farm or sell off your real es-
tate and live happily ever after. I think
water is going to be a major issue; we
have been identified as the recharge
system for the southeastern United
States. The heart of our county is the
Waccasassa flats; I think that's very
important. They've identified over
.60 natural springs throughout the,
count I'n sure there's some hiddeft;
,,n the woods. I think it's ~er% mnpor-
tant that we protect those springs. :T
think drinkable water is going to be-
come a worldwide issue because of
population growth.

Q. What experience \do you have
that has helped you in the past and
will help you be a good county com-
missioner in the future?
A. I think my knowledge of the
way the county worked, on the out-
side, not being a commissioner, it
was easy to make judgments, it was
easy to complain, it was easy to not
understand how everything worked.
Now that I've been on the board I've
been through 4 budget processes, I
see where the money goes right down
to the penny. The line items, requests
for funds from different organiza-
tions, I see the statutes to: mandate.
There are certain that I wouldn't
want to fund but we have to by law.
I just totally better understand from
the inside looking out of how every-
thing operates. Does it go exactly like
I would like it to? No. I know that
I can do better in the next four years
than I'did in the past simply from the
fact the first year or two was a learn-
ing process. I take every item serious,
I analyze it and I gather the evidence
and I try to make a decision. And I


don't have a personal agenda; I don't
do what Tommy Langford thinks. I
do what's best for the residents of the
county. And sometimes I even find
myself maybe not supporting some-
thing that I really think is important
unless it represents the taxpayers of
the county because that's who I rep-
resent. I don't represent myself.

Q. Do you feel the people can ex-
pect any rollback of the millage rates
in Gilchrist County?
A. What I would look at, in the
past we've really had to cut budgets
and really had to just spread it mighty
thin. Can people expect a rollback in
property taxes? I would say that there
possibly could, depending on the fu-
ture, depending on the trend. This
year we received more revenue than
ever. We were able to do some things
this year that we haven't been able to
do in the past, we've been needing to
build a jail for years, we're going to
have to build a jail. It's getting to the
critical point where were going to be
mandated to build a jail. We're gon-
na have to fund that someway. If we
get some of the things accomplished
in the next year or two that we would
like to, I think yes there would be a
possibility we roll back down the tax-
es, how much? I can't answer that.

Q. Is there anything y6u want the
voters to know about you, anything
that I haven't asked about that would
help them make their decision?
A. I would like for people to con-
sider who I am, I'd like the people
to look at my record. Look at my
accomplishments, that's what I've
tried to do in my ads is show to the
voters what I have been able to ac-
complish in my four years. I would
like for them to consider what I feel


Elect a Supervisor

will be actively


like I can do in my next four years in
my planning, in my strategy, in my
knowledge, my dedication. I'm dedi-
cated to this county, I live here, I'm
gonna stay here. Give me four more
years to do the best I can. I don't
make promises but I will do the very
best I can.


Supervisor of Elections
interview with Connie Douglas-
Sanchez:


Q.: What made you decide to run
for the Supervisor of Elections posi-
tion?
A. When Ms. Susan decided to re-
tire, and I had served my time here I
decided to give it a shot.

Q. How many years have you al-
ready worked in the Supervisor of
Elections office under Susan Bryant?
A. 9 years.

Q. To what do you attribute the.
fact that Gilchrist County has not had
the same election issues as some of
our neighboring counties?
A. That is very true, this is a small-
er county and it is much easier to stay
on top of things in a smaller county.,
They're a much larger county (the'
counties with previous issues) and
they have more elections due.to the
municipalities and they constantly
have an election going on. It does'
make a difference.

Q. Are you planning on running
the office very similar to how Mrs.;
Bryant had been running things?
A. Yes, yes, yes.

respectfully with boundless high
energy recreating the illusion, both
physically and vocally, of the Queen
of Rock 'n Roll.
Over the years, Vest has received
awards and recognition for her tal-
ents and years of entertaining. She
received the 2005 International Ce-
lebrity Images Award for Pop 'n
Rock For Reel, and the Best Corpo-
rate Event Performance in 2003. She
is known as the best in the business
and celebrates over 20 years of this
thrilling tribute to Tina Turner.
Vest performs songs from the early
Tina Turner years, such as, "Proud
Mary," "Honky Tonk Woman," the
80s "What's Love Got To do With
It," Private Dancer," and the 90s
"Simply The Best," "I Don't Wanna
Fight," and many more.
Funnyman Christopher John was
born in Queens, New York. His for-
mative years were spent with his
family on Long Island. He relocated
to Florida in his early twenties. The
many voices coming from a young
Christopher's bedroom were thought
by his family to be those of his
friends. John was actually entertain-
ing himself while honing his skills
of vocal impressions, mimicking the
sounds coming from his small tele-
vision. He soon realized that others
enjoyed his ability to impersonate ce-
lebrity voices and John was hooked.
Christopher John's impressions are
numbered at seventy plus! He can
quickly change from the mild man-
nered Jimmy Stewart to a rousing,
musical John Travolta. One minute
he's the cranky Archie Bunker and
next he is a zany Jerry Lewis.
John has spent much of his time
performing across the United States,
making stops in places from Missouri
to Las Vegas. He has entertained in
varied venues and corporate events,
including world famous hotels and
casinos including the Bellagio, MGM
Grand, and Mirage, to name a few.
With a cast of characters so diverse,
Christopher John's audiences are al-
ways waiting with anticipation for
his next impression. John jam packs
his show with an astounding array of
beloved characters, leaving his audi-
ences standing on their feet. He basks
in the spotlight, but loves getting up
close and personal, making his fans
an integral part of his show.
Have dinner before the show at
the Lobo Cafe. On the menu is Fried
Chicken or Roast Beef, mashed po-
tatoes and gravy, cut corn, French
green beans, French bread, salad bar,
chocolate cake, choice of any foun;m
..tain drink, tea or coffee, ss including
tax. Dinner is served at 6 p.mn ind
reservations are required. Tickets for
the performance are $14 general ad-
mission, $13 seniors and $12 LCCC
staff and students.

ervations for dinner, contact the PAC
box office at (386) 754-4340.


Kidsafe Seafood
Highlights the
"Healthiest Fish In The
Sea" For Children
Parents committed to feeding their
children a healthy diet now have some
extra help, thanks to a new collabora-
tive effort of chefs, pediatricians, and
sustainable seafood experts, called
KidSafe Seafood. Spearheaded by
SeaWeb and the Roy Disney Family
Foundation in response to the increas-
ing interest in serving kids low-fat,
nutrient-rich seafood to counter the
surge in childhood obesity and diet-
related illnesses, KidSafe Seafood
clearly identifies some of the healthi-
est seafood choices for kids-and
provides easy recipes and resources
for busy parents.
A new report released by the Na-
tional Academies Institute of Medi-
cine validates that a wide variety of
low-contaminant seafoods can play
an important part of a healthy diet for
children. It also acknowledges, how-
ever, that parents and other consum-
ers need clearer information to sort
through seafood risks and benefits.
While seafood offers omega-3 fatty
acids, lean protein, and a variety of
vitamins and minerals, most fish con-
tain at least trace amounts of toxic in-
dustrial pollutants, particularly mer-
cury and PCBs, which can be harm-
ful to children's growing bodies and
rapidly developing brains.
"As a pediatrician, I find that many
parents are confused about which fish
are best for kids. They know fish is
good for them, but they are unsure
about which types are safe to serve,"
said Dr. James Sears, a pediatrician
and author of parenting books who
helped develop KidSafe Seafood.
"Fish are one of the most nutritious
foods for kids, but it is important to


select the right ones."
The top ranking KidSafe Seafood
choices are: Wild Alaskan salmon
(pink, coho and chum), Tilapia (pref-
erably from the United States or Cen-
tral America), Shrimp (preferably
U.S. farmed, Oregon pink, & north-
ern "salad" shrimp), Farmed bay
scallops, Farmed blue mus-
sels.
Through a rigorous assessment
process that analyzed the 65 most
commonly eaten seafoods, the pro-


gram has identified the very best sea-
food choices for children-those that
are sufficiently low in mercury and
PCBs as to be safe for children, age
three and older, to eat at least once
a week, based on the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency's safety
guidelines. All KidSafe Seafoods
also meet high standards for nutri-
tion and environmental friendliness
to guide parents who are looking for
the all-around best choices.
"If our oceans have abundant fish
and pollution is reduced, we can
ensure an excellent source of lean
protein and essential fatty acids for
our families now and for future gen-
erations," said Dr. Becky Goldburg,
Senior Scientist with the non-profit
group Environmental Defense. "This
initiative underscores the connection
between human health and the envi-
ronment by highlighting seafood op-
tions that are caught in a sustainable
way and low in contaminants in
other words, seafood that is both good
for you and good for the ocean."
"Our task as parents can no longer
be aboutjust getting kids to clean their
plates," adds. Michel Nischan, chef
and owner with Paul Newman of The
Dressing Room, A Homegrown Res-
taurant in Westport, CT. A father of
five, Nischan changed how his own
family eats after one of his sons was
diagnosed with diabetes. "We have
to pick foods more carefully-for nu-
tritional value, for environmental
well-being, and to build a foundation
for lifelong healthy eating."
For complete information about
KidSafe Seafood, parents are encour-
aged to visit www.KidSafeSeafood.
org The website showcases kid-
friendly recipes-including healthy
homemade fish sticks-and easy
cooking tips to help busy parents put
seafood on the table every week.
To make its assessments, the pro-
gram uses the best available state,
federal, and academic studies, sup-
plementing the limited data collected
by-the FDA, under the guidance of a
panel of doctors and scientists. This
week's Institute of Medicine report
also acknowledged the need for better
government monitoring and research

of the levels and effects of seafood
containments. KidSafe Seafood will
continually reassess and update its
list, as new data becomes available.
KidSafe Seafood is a program of
SeaWeb, an independent communi-
cations-based nonprofit organization
focused on advancing ocean conser-
vation and ensuring a healthy sea-
food supply for the future. The Roy
Disney Family Foundation provided
funding. Environmental Defense
provided extensive scientific research
and technical assistance, and offers a
useful consumption advisory chart

Others since include Sgt. Ricky Lord,

this opportunity to thank them for
protecting our families, so join us at
our luncheon and bring your flags to
say "Thanks."
We also want to honor all veterans

participate.
It is our privilege to serve lunch to
all veterans and their families at no

our beloved United States.

Society meets the second Tuesday
of each month at the Trenton Train

establish a similar tradition for rec-

meetings which seek to preserve the
excellent quality of life we enjoy here
in Gilchrist County.

As early voting begins this week, I ask the voters of Gilchrist County to consider the following:
*We are a county with a growing population.
*Our residents need and desire services that are more varied, and that cost more than in the past.
*How will we fund of the needs and desires of our residents.
*Can we keep and maintain the many positive attributes that have kept those of us fortunate
enough to have been born here, and drew others to choose Gilchrist County for their home.
I believe that I am the best qualified candidate in the District 4 County Commission Race, to help
resolve these issues, and many others that face Gilchrist County. Please review my education
and employment record as set forth above.
Like many of you, I am a home owner and business owner who is impacted whenever taxes and
assessments are raised. Therefore, I will spend the taxpayers money wisely and fairly. My wife,
Valerie Ann Thomas, and I made a choice to live and raise our four children, Branden Rance (9),
Selena Ann (8), Jared Allen (6) and Savana Grayce (5), in Gilchrist County, Florida. Because of.
that, I am motivated to make Gilchrist County be as good as it can be while still preserving, as
much as is possible, the things that kept us or brought us to this place.

I AM DEDICATED TO OUR COUNTY AND DEDICATED TO ITS FUTURE

acclaim for the ensemble's musical
versatility and innovative style.
The Capitol Quartet concert is Fri-
day, February 2nd, at 7:30 p.m. at
Lake City Community College.
The Journeys are Bronn, Kather-
ine and the harp often called "the
instrument of angels." Bronn's daz-
zling virtuosity and humorous ap-
proach to a seriously classical instru-
ment have made him a favorite with
concert goers.;- Classical, sacred,
Broadway and popular tunes all flow
effortlessly from the strings of his
harp, and Katherine's beautifully ex-
pressive interpretations of the songs
she. sings delight their audiences.
Bronn has even played the Nation-
al Anthem at Seattle Seahawks and
Sonics sporting events! They have
produced 17 albums encompassing a
wide range of music.
Their concert is Thursday, March
8, 2007, at 7:30 p.m. at Lake City
Community College.
The Little Eagles of Siberia, an en-
semble of 28 young singers and mu-
sicians ranging in age from 11 to 19,


are touring the world to rekindle hu-
man faith in music and youth. They
perform for Community Concerts on
Sunday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m. at
Lake City Community College.
Their brilliant and colorful na-
tional costumes have been designed
and created for them by artists of the
world-renowned Krasnayarsk Ballet
and Opera.
The program will include instru-
mental works for balalaika, accor-
dion (the traditional Russian Bayan)
and piano. The choice of repertoire
and polished choral arrangements by
director Ludmilla Stebnjkova, range
from Glinka to Gershwin.
Tickets are available at the Cham-
ber of Commerce, 106 S. Marion
Street. For more information, call
(386) 752-3793.

County Candidates Questionnaire


Connie D. Sanchez
(Continued from Page Ten)
Q. Are there some changes you
would like to make in the future?
A. Due to the growth in our com-
munity we are concerned about poll-
ing places being big enough to house
the people. We have to worry about
the growth. Other than that, an open
door policy and continuing to be
friendly, give advice to citizens as
much as we have available, encour-
age everyone that can be registered
to get registered. If you can get reg-
istered and you want to be a voice
heard in your communities I say get
registered and vote. Because that's
somebody spending your tax-dol-
lars.
Q. Is there anything specific you
want to accomplish in office?
A. I just want to keep the citizens
informed on what is going on to the
best of our ability so they are fully
aware what we are voting on. We
try every way possible to let people
know about any information on the
people that are running, if they (the
candidates) are not willing to go
online and put their information out
there there's not a lot we can do. I en-
courage candidates to use the county
website because that's the only way
you can really read about them.
Q. Is there anything that I have not
asked that you would like the voters
to know about?
A. I think that it's very impor-
tant that someone have a little bit of
knowledge that continues working


in the elections office. The hands-
on experience I think truly means a
lot. I've learned while I've been out
campaigning and talking to people
that it's truly amazing at how many
friends that you learn that you have
that come out to say "can I hold a
sign, is there anything that I can do,
can I help you with a mail out." It's
just been truly overwhelming at how
much response you get, to find out
how much the people are good in
Gilchrist County and been good to
you.
Q. Do you feel that the person in
the Supervisor of Elections position
would need a degree to do what is re-
quired of them?
A. No, as long as you have been
trained; we go to schools constantly,
we attend many schools through out
the year that keep you updated on
what you need, so no I do not.

Supervisor ofElections
interview with Bill Martin:
Q. What made you decide to run
for the Supervisor of Elections posi-
tion?
A. A long time ago I had thought
about going into politics, a rumor even
once got started that I was running for
Sheriff, and I had several people ask
me and I said No I'm not running for
Sheriff, I'm not the least bit qualified
for that office. And someone just out
of the blue said "What office would
you run for if you decided to run
for office?" And I said "you know
if I ever wanted to run for an office
I would run for Supervisor of Elec-
tions. I think that would be the job
to have, you have a set of rules that
you have to go by and you just basi-
cally enforce the rules and I've been
doing that my whole life." I've been
teaching for 23 years, agriculture,
and I decided it's time to see what
else is available out there and what
else I can do with my talents besides
just teach students. I've been serving
the public of Florida for 23 years and
I'm ready to serve the other residents
of Gilchrist County besides just the
kids and the parents.
Q. What would you like to do or
change if elected?
A. When I was 18, Susan Bry-
ant came out to the schools and she
talked to all of us and she got us all
registered right then on the spot. We
were pre-registered if we weren't 18
so when we turned 18 we'd get our
card. And she talked to us about the
importance of voting and the impor-
tance of getting out and doing your
American duty and all that. And they
stopped doing that, and that's what
really got me involved in politics
that long ago and that's something I
think needs to be done that's not be-
ing doqn..So p a's one of bhe thaigs
I'd reall like to do it I get into the
office is to get back out and not only
educate the students about the politi-
cal process but get them all pre-reg-
istered and registered so when they
turn 18 they can vote. In my visiting
the last 6 months, the kids between
18 and 25 are not registered to vote
and if they are registered to vote most
of them are not voting and when
asked they don't see the need in it,
they don't think their vote, is gonna
count, they don't have time, they're
too busy. All these excuses and so
I think the only place to really get
them excited is here in school. Al-
though I love the ethics that Susan
Bryant has brought into the office I
think there are some other things that
need to be done and two of my ma-
jor goals is one to get back into the
schools and get the office out into the
public more. I would like to see the
office at the Christmas parade with
a little float, put a booth up at Down
Home Days and football games, and
if nothing have a table where people
that are new to the county can come
and register, people who are already
registered can update their informa-
tion. I can have pamphlets out about
the different amendments and the
constitutional things that are coming
down, about the candidates so people
could come by and get excited about
the election and see who's running.
Now I don't know all the legal rami-
fications about what I can or can't do
but I know I could be out in the pub-
lic a whole lot more. And 4 want to
work with the senior citizens on the
new technology, that's a big thing. A

lot of times the new technology kinda
scares the older people and they don't
know, they're afraid something's

love to go to the nursing homes and

places and take a voting machine and
go, alright this is what they're gonna
look like, these are what the ballots
look like, this is how it works, so that
they understand and so when they do
go to vote they're not afraid.
Q. To what do you attribute the
fact that Gilchrist County has not had
the same. election issues as some of
our neighboring counties?
A. I think there are several rea-
sons; one, we don't have the huge
number of people you've got in other
counties. The other thing is Susan's
been there 27 years she knows how
to take care of every single problem
that has ever arisen. And she is re-
ally great at the administration part of
it and she is very well organized and
things such as that. It mayjust be her
personality; she has all her ducks in
a row. There is no loose ends and I
think that's one of the things you def-
initely need to be if you're in that, is
organization and skills and working
with people and things like that.
Q. What experience do you have
that you feel will help you be a good
Supervisor of Elections?
A. I've got a lot of experience in
leadership and administration, in run-
ning and planning events, and ideas
and carrying them out. I was raised
here, I went and got my Bachelors
and my Masters in administration
and education and then I've been
running what I feel is a really high
quality FFA program for 23 years.
And we put on banquets each year,
we do elections of our own officers
each year, we do the CARES, the Fall
Festival, I can't tell you how many
events I've put on a year and I usu-
ally head them up and put them on
and organize'for them. I have a good
report with the community, not just in
Bell. Most people who know me will
tell you that I'm a pretty outstand-
ing guy. I'm not gonna lie to you or
cheat you or anything like that. I can
talk to anybody, I don't mind talk-
ing in public and I think this office

On Wednesday, October 18th, Ay-

members enjoyed a fabulous luncheon
of Caeser salad, homemade dinner

FWC Says Boaters Who'
Comply With Manatee
Speed Zones Won't Get
Citations For Manatee
Strikes
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) and
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS).
said today, boaters who comply with
manatee speed zones won't get cita-
tions if they strike manatees.
Officials said cooler weather will
cause manatees to begin their annual
migration from open water to warm-
water springs and power plant dis-
charges, leaving the slow-moving sea
cows vulnerable to speeding and even
slow-moving vessels. Law-abiding
boaters who strike a manatee or ob-
serve a manatee hit by another vessel
can call the FWC's Wildlife Alert Ho-
tline at 1-888-404-3922 without fear
of a citation. Boaters should be pre-
pared to provide the incident location,
weather conditions, boat specifica-
tions and other relevant information.
FWC will attempt to recover, and
if possible, rehabilitate the animal.
"We want to assure boaters who oper-
ate vessels lawfully and responsibly
that they should not feel reluctant to
report accidental collisions with man-
atees," FWC executive director Ken
Haddad said. "The information we
gather from reported accidents can
help guide manatee conservation ef-
fort- in,the future." .;,-i ., *
(It. addition, Haddadsaid, prompt
response to an accideht-may increase'
the chance of success in attempts to
rescue and care for the injured animal
and eventually return it to the wild.
"People who disregard the law
must be held accountable, but we un-
derstand that people operating their
boats responsibly and legally may
accidentally hit manatees," FWS re-
gional director Sam Hamilton said.
"We will treat accidents as what they
are accidents. We hope boaters will
report them to us so we have a chance
to rescue the animal and a chance to
learn more about how to protect the
species."
Collisions with boats are a signifi-
cant source of injury and mortality in
manatees.

cies' manatee programs, visit My-

you Bernie, everyone was tapping
their toes.
Staff members helped to serve
those that came to the Dine-In. What
fun we all had taking care of our resi-
dents and their families.
.It's wonderful to see family mem-
bers spend time with their loved ones
here at Ayers Health and Rehabilita-
tion. The holidays are quickly ap-
proaching us. Let's not forget our
troops overseas that will be sepa-
rated from their families during this
Thanksgiving season and to bring
them all home safely.,
Thank you to our community for
all you do for Ayers Health and Re-
habilitation Center.


ney Neil Chamelm.
The Florida League of Cities is
committed to fighting fraud because
the Department of Financial Services
estimates that Florida's residents pay
an additional $1,400 in insurance
premiums annually due to fraud.
"We are very excited about the
exemplary work of the SIU," said
Rockledge Mayor Larry Schultz,
Chairman of the Board for the FMIT.
"Workers' compensation is a neces-
sary protection provided by employ-
ers and is relied upon by thousands
of injured Flondians to cover their
medical expenses and to help offset
their lost wages. But when people
lie about injuries, pad their insur-
ance claims or otherwise defraud the
workers' compensation program, it's
theft and it hurts those folks who re-
ally need the monoe..
Since its inception in 1999, the
SIU has identified, investigated and
reported numerous potential cases of
insurance fraud, abuses and non-ex-
istent injuries to the state's Division
of Insurance Fraud (DIF). Its work
has, among other accomplishments,
led to 34 arrests and 25 pleas and
convictions, with cost savings total-
ing almost $3.7 million.'

413 municipal governments (cities,

ties) in Florida, designed and estab-
li~hed to i!eet and sei\ e the needs of.

mandated, you had to spend more betterment of our school system, the
money on core subjects. So I would knowledge to speak up when neces-
like to have more of them back in but sary, and the ability to listen when
we don't have the funding now, but necessary and the eagerness to serve
there should be ways around it. every child equally. I also would like


Q. What experience do you have
that you feel will help you in this po-
sition?
A. I do have a lot of business ex-
perience. I'm very experienced with
people and listening and learning
from people and being able to speak
up if I need to. I an very fiscally re-
sponsible, public records are avail-
able at the court house so anybody
is welcome to check them out. I've
been here 25 years and I am the one
who has to answer for what I do. I
own Klip-N-Kurl in Trenton and I am
a part of CO2 Direct.
Q. Is there anything that I have not


to put policies in motion that put our
teachers back in the classroom lov-
ing to teach and children are loving
to learn.

School Board Member
interview with Cloud Haley:
Q. What made you decide to run
for the School Board position?
A. I've always worked with chil-
dren, I have through the Suwannee
Valley Leagues for 19 years, my
heart's always been with children.
But I saw things happening in the last
few years through the school system
that I was very displeased with. One
is over the last two years basically


Cloud Haley
our vocational trade has been totally
taken out of our school system. There
is no vocational training, the reason I
think it's so crucial is that around 85
to 87% that graduate from Gilchrist
County Schools do not go onto any
form of higher education. So I think

that we feel obligated to provide that
education, a trade, to where our chil-
dren can go out and go into a job.
The other thing that is very upsetting
to me is they have eliminated the per-
forming arts. These things are very
important to help a child to learn; it's
a proven fact that if a child is per-
forming in drama, music, what ever
it may be, it does help there learning
ability. The other thing that I am very
concerned about is I heard about two
years ago that the Ag program's go-
ing to be eliminated, which it hasn't.
The Ag program is strong, very good
in our school system and we need to
retain it. The last thing that had em-
phasis on me was my son. He has
been in the Business Academy from
his 9th grade, 10th grade, and llth
grade. They dropped the Business
Academy at the end of his 11th grade
which was last year. And it's been a
very successful program, these are
some things.
Q. What direction do you want our
schools to go in?
A. I am not a fan of the FCAT. I
think it's good, its accountability, but


we have too much emphasis on the
FCAT. We need to go back to the
basics, I personally feel one of the
changes we need to do is put back
where the teacher's classroom is the
teachers. Let the teacher have con-
trol of her classroom and discipline.
Also, our teachers are still the best
teachers in the state, we need to be
ensuring and retaining the qualified
teachers, which we have lost a lot of
them, due to the pay scale. Counties
around us are paying more than we
do but yet we are a superior school
system.
Q. What are your ideas on disci-
pline?
A. I think we do need to give the
teacher control of her classroom. I'm
kind of old school on that, if it means
go stand in the corer the teacher
should be able to do that. If it means
to go to the principal because the
child is totally out of control, sure.
And I still believe if the child de-
serves a spanking, as long as the par-
ents are aware of it before they do it,
I see nothing wrong with it. If that's
what type of punishment it takes for

that child to understand not to inter-
rupt the classroom.
Q. What experience do you have
that will help you in this position?
A. I think I've had a lot of experi-
ence. I have been in the youth min-
istry for the last 18 years, anywhere
from teaching to being a youth direc-
tor to working youth camps. I have
overseen youth camps, I have been
a counselor, I have been a director
of youth camps. I've always been
working with the youth. I have been
very fortunate to be affiliated with
the Gilchrist County Recreation Au-
thority, Suwannee Valley Leagues, I
have served many roles there, most
recently was president for a lengthy
time, but we have seen that program
develop. I have been very active in
our school system; I've been a volun-
teer, anywhere from sponsorship to
business expo for the past 13 years. I
have two children and I think it helps
you. You have to learn as the child
is learning and I think with that my
children have helped me just as much
to be able to take it to be a representa-
tive on the School Board.
Q. Is there anything that I have not
asked that you would like the voters
to know about?
A. The voters, when they make a
decision on who to vote on need to
look at each candidate and look what
they have done over the past 20-25
years with the community.
The most important thing of all
to tell all the people I do see door to
door is pray about it, and when you
pray about it what God tells you to
vote for that's who you should vote
for.

long haul. Being the Christian she is;
Sylvia has learned that one must be
willing to accept the Lord's will and
not be self-centered.
At the moment, and along with the
other two organizations in which she
is involved, this quiet lady is alsd
overseeing the Awana program at
Mt. Horeb Baptist church: (The pro-
gram is for the age groups of three
years old to 18.) .She is learning that
"anytime anyone who is a grandpar-

this sort, as the leader they must hold
back and move slowly. Mrs. Arthur
believes that whomever the Lord
calls, He also enables."
Sylvia's main concern is for the
youth of today. Her words to them
are, "Pursue goals early in life, never
bum bridges behind you, keep on,
never quit, be patient in every day
and have a good mentor or prayer
partner who will help you get through
each day."
Mrs. Arthur's favorite scripture
verse is from Proverbs 3:5 and 6,
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart;
lean not on your own understand-
ing, In all your ways acknowledge
Him, and He shall direct your path."
She relates that "the Lord has been
her help every day and without His
help she could not get through each
day." Her motto in life is "Know
your strengths and weaknesses and
be willing to acknowledge your limi-
tation."
Once again, we see that we who
live in Gilchrist County are among
many who desire to show the world
that character education is a life-long
process and our "County is a County
of character because it's a County
that cares."
