Appreciation To Three Retiring

School Board Members

members Gary Rexroat, Carol Hyde-Buck and Ronnie Smith.


Gilchrist County
Retiring School Board
Members
By Anna Wild
Yes, once the votes are counted in
the Tuesday, No\ ember 7th General
Election, it will all be final. Ronnie
Smith, School Board Chairman, Gary


Rexroat, School Board Member, and
Carol Hyde-Buck, School Board
Member will all be retiring as of the
next School Board Meeting, Novem-
bdr 7, 2006 at 10:00 a.m..There will
be a small retirement celebration for
the three held after the meeting and
the community is welcome to come
and wish them well on their endeav-


ors.
I had the chance to speak with our
three retirees and all were sad to say
good-bye but all have served our
county for many years and deserve
the chance to focus on other aspects
of their lives. Gary Rexroat has
served our School Board for 20 years
and he explained that "My political
career is ending but I'm currently em-
ployed as a Physicians Assistant with
the University of Florida Department
of Community Health and Family
Medicine with the Fanning Springs
Clinic." He will remain a very visible
part of our community and continues
to serve our community in his pro-
fessional manner. I asked him if he
had any words of advice for the new
board members, "some times the best
thing is not the most popular thing,
just do what's right." He was happy
to say that Gilchrist County Schools
"have gone from being a very rural
district to one of the top five districts
in the state."
Carol Hyde-Buck has served our
community for a total of 14 years
over two terms. She explained she
had planned to stay an additional four
years then she met Russell Buck (the
love of her life) and now she needs
her freedom to travel. She said she
has seen how Gilchrist County has

Information About Constitutional

Amendments On General

Election Ballot


Voters in Gilchrist Counti will be
going to the polls on Noemiber 7,
2006 and the following information
should be a helpful source of infor-
mation. There are six proposed con-
stitutional amendments which will
appear on the reverse side of the Gil-
christ County Ballot. The following
is a non-partisan, unbiased guide on
each of the proposed constitutional
amendments.
Amendment #1
State Planning and Budget Process
Official Ballot Summary: Proposing
amendments to the State Constitution
t6 limit the amount of nonrecurring
general revenue which may be appro-
priated for recurring purposes in any
fiscal year to 3 percent, of the total
general revenue funds estimated to be
available, unless otherwise approved
by a three-fifths vote of the Legisla-
ture; to establish a Joint Legislative
Budget Commission, which shall is-
sue long-range financial outlooks; to
provide for limited adjustments in the
state budget without the concurrence
of the full Legislature, as provided by
general law; to reduce the number of
times trust funds are automatically
terminated; to require the prepara-
tion and biennial revision of a long-
range state planning document; and
to establish a Government Efficiency
Task Force and specify its duties.
t Amendment Type:

amendment was placed on the bal-
lit by the Florida Legislature during

the 2004 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate and
House by a 60% vote to be eligible
for the ballot.
Sponsor:Florida Legislature.
Known Proponents: Unknown
Known Opponents: Unknown
Were Paid Signature Gatherers
Used to Place This on the Ballot?
N/A Amendment was placed on
the ballot via the Legislature. It was
required to pass both the Senate and
House by a 60% vote.
Arguments: FOR
Today, the Legislative Budget Com-
mission has a variety of functions re-
garding appropriations. This amend-
ment, would establish a Joint Budget
Commission and would do what has
not been done before put both the
budget and revenue estimates togeth-
er in one document. In addition to the
annual budget, it will also require the
Commission to create a long-term fi-
nancial outlook.
Arguments: AGAINST
Current general law, which pre-
scribes requirements for each depart-
ment and agency of state government
to submit a planning document and
supporting budget request, is ad-
equate and an additional task force is
not needed.
What Your Vote Means: YES
If approved by voters, Amendment
#1 would establish a long-range
budget-planning process, putting
both budget and revenue estimates
together in one document. It would
create a Government Efficiency Task
Force (appointed every four years by
the Governor, Senate President and
Speaker of the House) to seek input
from the public, executive and judi-
cial branches and create a long-range
financial plan.
What Your Vote Means: NO
If Amendment #1 is not approved
by voters, the current laws as set by
Section 19 of Article III of the State
Constitution will remain in place as
originally proposed by the Taxation
and Budget Reform Commission and
approved by the voters in 1992.
Financial Impact:
There is not a direct financial im-
pact on state or local government.
Note: The Financial Impact Esti-
mating Conference is not required
to adopt and prepare official finan-
cial impact statements to accompany
proposed constitutional amendments
which are placed on the ballot by the
Florida Legislature.
Amendment #3


Requiring Broader Public
Support for Constitutional
Amendments or Revisions
Official.Ballot Summary: Proposes
an amendment to Section 5 of Article
XI of the State Constitution to re-
quire that any proposed amendment
to or revision of the State Constitu-
tion, whether proposed by the Legis-
lature, by initiative, or by any other
method, must be approved by at least
60 percent of the voters of the state
voting on the measure, rather than
by a simple majority. This proposed
amendment would not change the
current requirement that a proposed
constitutional amendment imposing
a new state tax or fee be approved by
at least 2/3 of the voters of the state
voting in the election in which such
an amendment is considered.
Amendment Type:
Legislative/Joint Resolution, this
amendment was placed on the bal-
lot by the Florida Legislature during
the 2005 Legislative Session. It was
required to pass both the Senate and
House by a 60% vote to be eligible
for the ballot.
Sponsor: Florida Legislature
Known Proponents: Florida Asso-

ciation of Realtors, Florida Chamber
of Commerce, Florida Farm Bureau,
Florida Institute of CPAs,Floridians

tOurConstitution.org.
Known Opponents: ACORN, AFL-
CIO, Christian Family Coalition,
Common Cause, Florida Family Ac-
tion, Inc., Florida Policy Roundtable
and Humane Society of the United
States, SaveVotersVoice.org and

Were Paid Signature Gatherers Used
to Place This on the Ballot?
N/A Amendment was placed on
the ballot via the Legislature. It was
required to pass both the Senate and
House by a 60% vote.
Arguments: FOR
Florida's Constitution is the easiest to
amend in our nation. In recent years,
ballot initiatives have become a ve-
hicle for well-financed special inter-
est groups to protect their interests
via the state's most sacred document.
By implementing a higher threshold
for approval of constitutional amend-
ments, it broadens consensus because
a higher percentage of Florida's elec-
torate will be required to pass the ini-
tiative.
Arguments AGAINST

Over 300 Tri-County Residents

Attend Public Meeting In Support

Of Proposed Hospital


Over 300 citizens came out to show support of the Tri-County Hospital.


By Anna Wild
The Suwannee River Shrine Club
became a facility that was too small to
host a Public Hearing Tuesday after-
noon as an estimated 300 plus people
filled the meeting hall to speak out in
support of the proposed Tri-County
Hospital. This meeting was held to
allow the public to express their in-
dividual concerns in\ ol\ing the ap-
plication for Certificate of Need that
'ws filed Wednesday, October 18 in
Tallahassee.
Allan Bird from Nature Coast
Hospital in Williston was the first to
speak to the audience. He explained


that another hospital may cause more
stress on existing funds made avail-
able to presently operating, medical
facilities. He also expressed there is
no need for the proposed Tri-County
Hospital due to the 80% rule. He
pointed out that he understood the
concerns of the community for an-
other hospital, but it would not be
in the best interests of the area. The
public voiced their disapproval of his
comments as he left the podium
Tri-County citizens in support
of the construction of the hospital
voiced their concerns after Allan Bird
stepped down. Over 70 residents had


signed up to speak in this meeting.
The public was given 3 minutes each
to state their feelings. The public
shared personal experiences of needs
that had gone unmet. Some shared
ambulance journey experiences,
emergency room horrors, and over-
all displeasure in the current services
provided. All of the comments from
the meeting are now on public record
and will be taken into consideration
when those \hith the authoring make
their decision on the Cenficate of
Need for this Tri-County Hospital.

battle in their final home game of the
2006 season Friday night in stormy
conditions. The Bulldogs and the St

a touchdown to take the 20-14 win. V
St. John drew first blood in this -

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd

Trying to forecast short-term eco-
nomic direction is almost as impos-
sible as forecasting what will happen
on Wall Street. However, the level of
economic activity, or lack of it, is a
major factor in the level of corporate
profits and subsequently share prices.
Therefore, you need to be prepared,
keeping in mind that you load your
weapons before a battle and not af-
ter. '
Last week saw the Federal Reserve'
extend its pause in raising interest
rates for the third consecutive time.
How long that pause will last is still
an unknown despite the rampant ar-
ray of opinions emanating from Wall
Street.
One view is that the Fed \\ ill leave
rates unchanged for as long as a year
as they watch to see whether the
economy follows the Fed's hoped-for
scenario of slowing enough to cause
inflation to retreat from current lev-
els.
Nonetheless, the Fed again repeat-
ed its concerns over inflation, stating
that readings on core inflation, which
excludes energy and food, "have
been elevated" and that "the commit-
tee judges that some inflation risks
remain."
In blunt terms, the Fed is prepared
to reinstate its policy continuing to
push rates higher. Furthermore, I be-
lieve it is likely that the Fed is go-
ing to be forced to increase rates by
a quarter to a half a percentage point

To the Editor,
I would like to take a moment to

question and answer forum in you

gave readers some insight as to the
candidates' knowledge of issues and
qualifications. I only wish you had
done the same before the primaries!

The End Of False Religion Is Near
(Kent Heaton)


Three questions are addressed by the "worldwide
message" of the Jehovah Witness. (1) What is false
religion; (2) How will it end; (3) How will'you be affected?
The flyers left door-to-door prey on the fear of people
distressed about crime, warfare, terrorism and corruption.
The message is always based upon the assumption the
world will be coming to a horrific end with Armageddon
and the restoration of this world to an eternal paradise.
They taught for many years the generation of 1914 would
see this Armageddon but since these people are in their 90s
and not many left, they have changed their beliefs. When
referring to the Son of God they demean Him by calling
him a "widely respected religious figure. "
False religion is a faith begun by man. The Jehovah
Witness movement began in 1874 by Charles Russell
(Pennsylvania) created only 132 years ago; contrasted
with nearly two-thousand years the church of the New
Testament (Acts 2). For all those people who lived before
1874, the message of the Jehovah Witness was not heard
because it was not from the word of God as is true today.
Charles Russell started the Jehovah Witness; Jesus Christ
built His church and paid for it with His blood (Matthew
16:18; Acts 20:28).
False religion denies the eternal nature of man. One of
the founding doctrines of Jehovah Witness is the wicked
will be eternally destroyed and that people God approves
will receive everlasting life on a "recreated" earth only
144,000 will go to heaven. Jesus taught the eternal nature
of man when He told the parable of the judgment in
Matthew 25. "These will go away into eternal punishment,
but the righteous into eternal life" (Matthew 25:46). Eternal
punishment is not ceasing to exist but rather the continued


existence of the eternal nature of man as created by God
being punished in an eternal fire. If man will not suffer in
eternal fire neither will the devil and his angels (Matthew
25:41).
False religion embraces the doctrine of the antichrist
teaching the doctrine of a coming holocaust in
Armageddon. Fear is the tool used by Jehovah Witness to
cause people to think the apocalypse is near and the view
of the end of times with the thousand-year reign of Christ
on earth. The Bible (not the JW Bible) teaches that when
Christ returns (called the "second time" in Hebrews 9:28)
the world will be dissolved (2 Peter 3:10) and destroyed
with judgment following (2 Thessalonians 1:8,9; 1
Thessalonians 4:16). The "new heavens and new earth"
spoken of by Peter and John (2 Peter 3:13; Revelation
21:1) are not the physical earth but the "new Jerusalem"
eternal habitation built by God for His people to dwell with
Him in heaven.
False religion will end when Christ returns. "Every
plant, which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be
rooted up" (Matthew 15:13). We must reject doctrines of
men as founded by Charles Russell. We must embrace the
doctrine of God as found in the Bible and the Bible alone.
How will you be affected? Jesus told His disciples: "Let
them alone: they are blind leaders of the blind. And if the
blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch" (Matthew
15:14). Being religious is not salvation (Matthew 7:21-23).
The only truth that will save us is the Only Truth (John
14:6). Your eternal existence will be determined by
whether you listen to men or listen to God. No man shall
be your judge but the Son of God will be (Acts 17:31).
Reject men and follow God.

despite the slowing economy.
The reasons are twofold. The first
is that core inflation rose by 2.9 per-
cent in September when compared
with the same period a year ago. That
is well above the Fed's comfort level
of a 1 to 2 percent increase.
Yes, the Fed did point out that "in-
flation pressures seem likely to mod-
erate over time" reflecting falling en-
ergy prices and the cumulative effects
of the Fed's previous rate hikes.
That would be fine and dandy if
it was not for the second point, the
price of crude oil. It seems that the
Street dismissed out of hand OPEC's
notice of supply cuts. OPEC is wed-
ded to $70 per barrel. As I write this,
the price of crude has just jumped
$2.00 per barrel due to supply cuts.
Could the economy slow enough
so as to contain inflation to the Fed's
satisfaction, despite higher energy
costs? That depends on how much
pain companies are willing to suffer.
Potentially adding to that pain is the
possible demand for higher wages to
meet the increased cost of living.
However, if a slowing economy
reduces the demand for crude and
OPEC comes to its senses and is will-
ing to live with prices about where
they are now, inflation will remain
more or less in. check and we will
adapt to a slower but still positive
level of economic growth for the next
year or so.
There is also the upcoming mid-
term election. Should the Democrats
take control of one or both houses
of Congress, the opposing views on
fiscal policy would likely mean that
even less would be accomplished in
Washington, if that is possible.
So how should all this affect your
investment plans? If you have a com-
pany that you have been' looking to
invest in and its share price falls as
a result of lower sales, you are likely

fer (fund) art and music classes is one
that that has nothing to do with fund-
ing for core subjects or FCAT. This
is a decision made fully by our school
board members and superintendent.
Many counties, including neigh-
boring Alachua and Levy counties,
still offer both art and music classes
at elementary and high school levels.
These art and music teachers are
encouraged to collaboiate w.ith class-
roooiii teacher s to help cover difficult
core material using non-traditional
methods often resulting in better re-
tention than the rote memorization
of facts learned strictly for testing
purposes. As an educator, I had the
pleasure to work with one of these
phenomenal art teachers who went
out of her way to help classroom
teachers cover increasing amounts of
difficult material. I can attest that art
and music were both beneficial to my
students' achievement.
Additionally, research has shown
time and time again that students
who study art and/or music gener-
ally score higher than their peers on
achievement tests. In light of this re-
search I can't fathom why the school
board isn't going out of its way to en-
sure these subjects are included in the
curriculum.
I would ask then, that both incom-
ing and standing school board mem-
bers take the time to seriously study
the district's budget and ask ques-
tions in order to learn where resourc-

Letter To The Editor
I was recently provided a copy of
a multiple page document which pur-
ported to provide information related
to one of the local political candidates
and his campaign treasurer. I read the
"information" and was dismayed.
What was shocking about the
documents, was not so much the con-
tents, which were partially true and
partially lies, but the fact that some
individual or individuals from our
community would make such vicious
attacks on other individuals in our
community. We are supposed to be
caring, God-fearing people who have
"brotherly love" for one another re-
gardless of any political or other mo-
tives.
Almost as bothersome, is the fact
that this person or persons dissemi-
nated this information anonymously.
Perhaps the reason the persons did
this was to attempt to avoid being
sued for slander or liable. On the oth-
er hand, perhaps they were just cow-
ardly and did not want to get caught
telling stories about other people.
It is true that when a candidate
runs for public office his or her entire
history and personal information be-
comes at issue. However, to attack a
non-candidate is absolutely improper
and unacceptable morally and legal-
ly. This is especially true when the
attacks are not based upon complete
truths.
This behavior should not be ac-
cepted by the voters of this county.
We must take a stand against such
negative campaigning and potential
politicians (or their associates) who
are willing to violate election laws
to get elected. In my view, seeking
to have someone elected by attempt-
ing to smear the character of another
candidate (if a part of the smear cam-.
paign) renders that candidate unfit for
office. If my mind was not made up

Dixie Echoes Quartet
The Dixie Echoes To Be In Concert November 11th
At Chiefland United Methodist Church


Randy Shelnut and The Dixie
Echoes will appear in live concert at
the First United Methodist Church,
707 N. Main Street, Chiefland, on
Saturday night, November 11, 2006,
at 7:00 p.m.
For over 45 years, The Dixie Echoes
have been delivering the good news
of the Gospel through their spiritually
uplifting musical ministry. Although
considered to be one of the pioneer
Southern Gospel groups, the Dixie
Echoes have maintained a refreshing
vocal style, and a diverse selection of
songs that appeal to audiences of all
ages. This captivating group offers
hope and inspiration as they share the
message of God and his love for all
people during each invigorating per-
formance.
Since the Dixie Echoes formed
in 1960, they have released over 50
albums, and have had numerous top
10 singles. In addition to their long-
standing popularity on Gospel ra-
dio stations, the Dixie Echoes have
received numerous awards such as
Group of the year and Album of the
Year by the Southern Gospel Music
Association. as,,wellpas various Sing-
ing News Fan Awards. Most recent-
ly, they were honored in a Singing
News report for being one of the top
10 groups in America to have consis-
tently recorded top 40 songs during a
20-year period.
The Dixie Echoes have performed
throughout the United States and


Canada at such well-known venues
as the National Quartet Convention,
Suwannee River Jubilee, Dollywood,
and the Biggest All-Night Sing in the
World at Bonifay. The Dixie Echoes
also share their music ministry with
church, county fair, and television au-
diences. They have appeared on such
programs as TBN, GOSPEL MUSIC
TELEVISION, and are probably best
remembered for their performances
on the Gospel Singing Jubilee.
Although each of these individu-
als present their own distinct musical
styling, collectively they share the
common goal of being the best they
can be for the glory and honor of the
Lord, as they present the Gospel in
song with a touch of excellence. The
Dixie Echoes consists of:
Randy Shelnut-lead vocalist, em-
cee, and manager of the group. His
father, Dale was one of the founding
members of the Dixie Echoes, and
Randy has been with the group since
1969. Besides writing many of the
groups most popular songs, he has re-
ceived the Singing News Fan awards
twice for his vocal category.
Stewart Varnado-is the pianist and,
is originally from Franklin, Louisi-
ana. His personality and showman-
ship added with his versatile style

Please Help, Clean Up
At The Santa Fe River
To Be Held On
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

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 helping
out to make this one a big success.
We have one jon boat, and if one ofi
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!

cies, provide immediate assistance
to neighborhood victims and collect
information to support recovery ef-
forts.
This program is open to any and
all residents who quality in Gilchrist
County. This service benefits you,
your neighborhood, and your fellow
residents. A ten-week instructional
program is presented to include, upon
successful completion, the issuance
of basic personal protective gear and
tools, graduation, and Certification as
a recognized CERT Team member.
Classroom as well as hands-on train-
ing is scheduled for one night per
week, 2 1/2 hours per night, for ten
weeks. (Allowances for holidays).
Applications are available at your
Emergency Management Office, 204

ing the office at (352) 463-3134.

munity. Call or visit your Emergency

Log, Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
October 26th at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Ann Hardee put in a
quilt using all kind of turtles. Never
knew there were so many different
kinds and she did a great job. To me
they all look the same. Lois has fin-
ished a "Footprints in the Sand" and
it will soon go to Plant City.
Betty Salisbury brought in a big
bag of fabric and we all' picked out
what we could use. Peggy Williarls
is still hemming all kinds of crafts to
be put out at the Quilt Show. Another
box was made ready to be sent to Iraq
and we will be going to St. Francis
House with a load of all kinds of
things.
Jarrod and six boys were out Tues-
day, and we got the collards planted
along with onion sets. One day these
boys will have a home and.we hope a
garden so-we are teaching them how
to plant. In time they will reap what
they have planted.
I want to thank Thomas Warlow
from the Anderson Foundation for
the $1,000 donation to the Museum.
Megan, his wife, brings all kinds of,
craft material for us to use and the
ribbon we use at Camp Curuth when
the children make pillows, we tie a
ribbon on them to take home.
Lunch was so good With chick-
en and noodles green beans, Pat's

Once again we served hundreds of
Smoked Pork lunches at our annual
fundraiser. What terrific members
we have; so many baked cakes and/
or served and delivered. Our thanks
go out to all who helped, especially
Lynn Tilman and D. Ray Harrison
for manning the Smoker and Gwen
Walden who coordinated everything
so well. This is our main fundraising
event of the year and the proceeds
go towards our Student Scholarships.
Each year we award one Bell and one
Trenton High School student a schol-
arship. We feel this is a really worthy
cause as it may be the deciding factor
in whether or not that student contin-
ues their education.
Down Home Days is November
5th, and we are preparing some fun
stuff to sell at our stall. We will also
be selling the few remaining copies of
our book, Gilchrist County, It's His-
tory and It's people. With Christmas
just around the corer, this would
make a great gift.
Another reminder that our next


meeting will be one week later than
usual, on November 16th. We will be
picking names for the "Angel Pro-
gram," another one of our pet causes.
The joy it gives to needy children at
Christmas time is immense. There
will also be a canned food drive.
Tickets will be on sale for our fully-
catered Christmas Party on December
8th. This is when we allow our hus-
bands to.come along! There will be
a silent auction too, so please make
or donate something for that....'..it's
always a lot of fun.

Habitat For Humanity Receives
Property For First Home
Habitat for Humanity of Suwannee
Valley, Inc. has wonderful news! Joe
Anderson of Anderson Columbia
Paving Inc. has donated a 1.6 acre
parcel of property on CR-351 in
Dixie County as the site of the first
home. Thank you Joe.
The family selection committee is
in the final stages of picking a de-
serving family that will qualify for
the first home. Habitat qualifications
are stringent: the family must dem-
onstrate a need, have the ability to
payback a loan without interest and
put in hundreds of hours of 'sweat
equity' on their own home.
SHabitat for Humanity has been
pledged money that would bring the
funds to $27,000, over half of what
is needed to construct the house. We
give the glory to God as this is his
work and ministry! Many people have
donated hundreds of hours of volun-
teer time to get us to this point, but
we still need other volunteers to carry
us through. We can still use whatever
skills you have Will you help? We
can use your time or monetary dona-
tions. Please call Gigi at 463-7207 or

Reform


Gilchrist County's Middle School Reform Team flew to Washington,
DC, Thursday, October 26th, to take part in Dr. Willard Daggett's
symposium on how to improve our nation's middle schools. Shown
from left is Wilda Long, Jackie Downs, Cathy Jo Smith, Janice Beach,
Cheri Langford, and Ronda Parrish.


From The Desk



of the
Superintendent

Buddy Vickers, Superintendent
The Superintendent's Gala was
held on Saturday, October 14th, in a
beautifully decorated Bell Elementa-
ry School cafetorium. Entertainment
throughout the evening was provided
by students from our schools and was
enjoyed by the crowd of over 120
patrons who came out to support our
reading program. A special thanks to
Kyle Jenkins for his delightful dis-
play of light piano music throughout
the occasion.
The Gala generated over $11,000
for our reading programs. The prof-
its from this event will be used to
purchase items to help our students'
master reading in all of our schools.
October 13, 2007, has been set as a
tentative date for next year's Gala.
Mark your calendars!!
Did you know that our school
bus drivers transport students over
422,000 miles per year and that over
50% of our students ride buses each
day? Our Transportation Department
plays a big part in our success as an
"A+" School District. Our drivers'
first priority is to get our students to
school safely and on time. Parents,
please remind your children to be-
have and follow all safety rules while
on our school buses. Our bus driv-
ers bear a great responsibility and we
cannot tolerate behavior that may en-
danger the lives of our students.
Parents, do you know what web-


sites your child is visiting? Here at
school we try to block potentially dan-
gerous sites, but only you can police
what your child is viewing at home.
There are many social networking
sites that your child can visit. Many
of these sites are interactive and the
child can post messages. This can
lead to conflict at school if'the mes-
sage attacks a fellow student. While
the school cannot control what your
child does on-line, we will discipline
them when these postings cause dis-
ruptions or conflicts on campus.
Cell phones, cell phones with cam-
eras, and videos are another source of
concern to schools. Cell phone use
during the school day is prohibited by
school board policy. If a phone rings
or if a student uses the phone during
the school day it can be confiscated
and returned only to the parent. We
have had students bring pictures and
videos to school that are inappropri-
ate and may violate the law. Please
talk to your child about the proper
use of cell phones and obeying school
rules.
We have had an excellent school
year thus far. In visiting many of our
classrooms I have observed our teach-
ers working hard and our students on
task. I truly believe that we have one
of the best teaching and support staffs
in the state. Our teachers seem intent
on building "islands of greatness" in
their classrooms, and this translates
'into a great school system. Much of
the technology equipment that the
Board purchased this last summer
has arrived and been installed. I have
had comments from many teachers
about how they are using it to help
our students learn and how much fun
it is to use. One teacher informed me
that they are giving short homework
assignments to their students tobe
completed on a computer so that the

student learns the use of technology
in solving problems. This is a valu-
able lesson that can be used for the
rest of their lives.
Both Bell and Trenton Middle/
High School are holding Algebra I
classes for eighth graders after the
regular school day. This class runs
four days a week, 75 minutes per day.
This prepares the student to take ad-
ditional advanced math classes once
they reach high school. The students
earn a credit toward graduation if they
complete and pass the course. In ad-
dition to math, all four of our schools
are offering tutoring or remediation
classes after school to help our stu-
dents. Please contact your child's
school to see what is available.
Lake City Community College is
coming to Gilchrist County!!! At
our last meeting, the School Board
agreed to lease to LCCC the Full Ser-
vice School Building that is located
between BHS and BES on Bell Av-
enue. This location is perfect as it is
isolated from the other campuses and
'fenced separately. LCCC will start
offering courses in Gilchrist County
in January, 2007.
Having LCCC located in our
County will be great for our students,
citizens, and businesses. It opens
up avenues of learning that have not
been available and will enable our
schools to make better use of dual
enrollment opportunities and college
faculty members. Businesses will be
able to offer employees the oppor-
tunity to further their education and
our retirees can opt for enrichment
courses or learn new skills. All of
our citizens need to make full use of
this facility. This is a super oppor-
tunity for our graduates who need to
work and have limited time for travel
to and from college.
We invite you to visit our two new
academies. The Practical Careers
Academy at BHS, and the Engineer-
ing & Construction Academy at THS
are up and going strong. Both have
strong academic and technical-career
components to help our students. We
are very proud of all our technical-
career programs and our students. In
a fast changing world, our students
need to have the academic and tech-
nical training to compete for the best
jobs. Our programs are among the
best in the State and are open to all
students at both BHS and THS.
In building a great school system
there is-no single definingaction or W
miracle moment. Jim Collins, in his
research, found that it is like rumiing
a giant, heavy flywheel. You get ev-
eryone students, parents, teachers,
administrators, and citizen support-
ers pushing in the same direction
to achieve the same goal. The harder
everyone pushes, the faster the fly-
wheel goes, until you have almost
unstoppable momentum. This ener-
gy and support will enable us to forge
a great school system. Our students
deserve the best.

From The
Shelves Of
The Bell
Library
Nora Roberts wrote an exciting
novel, Blue Smoke, that relates how
an Italian family had operated a res-
taurant for generations until an arson-
ist destroyed it. In the.story you meet
all the family members and follow
their lives as the children become
adults and have families of their own.
One problem disturbs this family and
the residents of the neighborhood.
Who is the arsonist and whose home
or business will be destroyed next
and will there be deaths caused as the
buildings are being torched?
For the junior/teenage readers we
recommend a neat little book, Snake
River, in which four students who
failed their science class were taken
on a bumpy ride down Snake River.
The college student assisting the
regular teacher was bitten by a snake
and had to be rescued and taken to
the hospital. Their raft wasn't easy to
maneuver in the white, water rapids.
A learning adventure!
All Tutus Must be Pink, is a darling
little book for the beginning readers
which tells why this is true espe-
cially if you are eating strawberry ice
cream. The dropped ice cream will
not show on a pink tutu.
Anytime you are in the library if
you want to buy books from the
sales room, ask the volunteer to let
you look these books over to find a
book which you may wish to pur-
chase.

What's Happening In Gilchrist County Career Trenton Elementary School Citizens Of The
And Technical Education (Vocational) Programs? Month


Gilchrist County can boast at hav-
ing one of the largest Career and
Technical Education programs in
the area. These programs have been
known as vocational in the past, but
state and federal programs have now
'changed the title to Career and Tech-
nical Education (CTE).
Bell High School is extremely
proud of the successes of their stu-
dents who are in the Agriculture
'Program, Health Academy, Crimi-
nal Justice Magnet Program and the
newly added Practical Careers Acad-
emy where construction trades and
work force skills are an integral part
of the curriculum.
Trenton High school is equally
proud of its students and teachers
in the Agriculture programs, Family
and Consumer Sciences Program,
Business Technology Magnet Pro-
gram, and the new Construction and
'Engineering Academy.
Trenton Middle school has added
engineering in addition to agricul-
ture to the exploratory wheels. Both
Trenton and Bell Middle Schools
,have added a careers wheel for 8th
graders to explore multiple career
opportunities.
The number of students participat-
ing in High School Career and Tech-
nical Education has steadily increased
the last two years. Bell and Trenton
High Schools are proud of the ac-
complishment the CTE students have
made through district and state com-
-petitions in FFA, HOSA (Health Oc-
cupations Students of America) and
Criminal Justice.

Wilcox 4-H Club News


Shown is Samantha Owens who won Reserve Champion with one of
her Recorded Grade does.


Wilcox 4-H Club News
The Wilcox 4H club met at the
Trenton City Park for our October
meeting and built two really cool
scarecrows for the 4H scarecrow
contest. All of the kids had a great
time making the scarecrows and then
stuffing them with hay. When we fin-
ished building both scarecrows we
celebrated with a snack and cool re-
freshments.
We concluded our meeting by
taking our two scarecrows to the
courthouse lawn and putting up our
display.
We were tickled when we learned
that our scarecrows had won the
"Most Spirited" award. We look for-
ward to Mr. Chris coming up with an-
other fun project that our entire club
can do together.
Fair News: Some members of
our club participated in the Alachua
County Youth Fair in Gainesville
this month. Our club was proudly
represented by Erin Jones when she
showed her steers and heifers. Erin
won Reserve Champion Cow and
Calf pair. Special thanks to Britton
Rose for helping to show the calf.
Two other members of our club,
Donna and Samantha Owens, also
showed at three out-of-state shows.
At the Gwinnette County Fair in
Lawrenceville, Georgia, Donna won
Jr. Grand Champion with one of her
Recorded Grade does and Samantha
won Reserve Champion with one
of her Recorded Grade does. Donna
also won Reserve Champion with her
Jr. Alpine doe.
At the Georgia National Fair
in Perry, Georgia, Donna won 1st
place in senior showmanship and Sa-


mantha won 3rd place in Intermedi-
ate showmanship. Donna also won
Grand Champion with her Jr. Saanen
doe and Samantha won Sr. Reserve
Recorded Grade champion with her
doe.
At the South Carolina State Fair
Samantha won 1st place in show-
manship and Donna won 2nd place.
These girls battle it out to the end!
Donna won Jr. Reserve Champion
doe with her own breeding which just
made her day!
Congratulations to Erin, Britton,
Donna and Samantha for -proudly
representing 4H and doing so well in
your shows!

An Evening Of
Impressions At The
Levy Performing Arts
Center November 9th
Get ready for an "evening of im-
pressions" when Hollie Vest performs
as Tina Turner and Christopher John
performs his side splitting imperson-
ations on Thursday, November 9th,
at 7:30 p.m., at the Levy Performing
Arts Center.
Hollie Vest is the ultimate Tina
Turner tribute artist. She performs
her live tribute authentically and
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 famoushotels and
casinos including the Bellagio, MGM
Grand, and Mirage, to name a few.
SWith a cast of characters so diverse,
Christopher John's audiencesare al-


ways waiting with anticipation forT
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 Caf6. On the menu is Fried
Chicken or Roast Beef, mashed po-
tatoes and gravy, cut corn, French
green beans, French bread, salad bar,J
chocolate cake, choice of an\ f)oun-
tain drink, tea or coffee, $8 including;
tax. Dinner is served at 6 p.m and!
reservations are required. Tickets for;
the performance are $14 general ad-'
mission, $13 seniors and $12 LCCC
staff and students.
For more information and/or res-
ervations for dinner, contact the PAC
box office at (386) 754-43,1 -

SPRINGHOUSE QUILTES


Shown is Mary Rawlins displaying a wall hanging quilt using a fab-
ric collage technique.


Springhouse Quilters
News
Springhouse Quilters have been
learning many different quilting tech-
niques during 2006. One technique
is the use of fabric to make or paint
a picture which most likely will be-
come a small wall hanging. In early
American times, quilters made their
quilts for a specific reason, for use
on bedding to stay warm during cold
weather. Today, quilters enjoy many
forms of quilting that would surprise
our ancestors. These quilts are made
as a form of art work and are not in-
tended to be used except for display
or decorations.
During 2006, a workshop was
'held to teach the guild members how
to paint a picture using fabric. Us-
ing fabrics a median to create a pic-
ture is truly an art because the fabric
must be cut into small pieces and
then assembled into a picture. The
placement and color of the fabric will
determine the success of the project.
The pieces of cut fabric are assem-
bled to create a work of art that can
become a treasure for the family.
Springhouse quilters will be en-
joying a Christmas mini-show dur-
ing November. The members have
all been busy completing their 2006


Christmas quilts which will be
shown in November during the
workshop meeting.
Springhouse has a total member-
ship of over 90 members. These
members will be soon enjoying the
fall holidays. This is a special time
for friends and family. It is amaz-
ing how quickly 2006 has gone.
Since time seems to be so short be-
tween meetings, members stay very
busy finishing their projects for the
monthly meeting each month.
For information about Springhouse
Quilters, contact Anna Gilliam, 463-
S7922 or Lois Scott, 463-2207.

prising saxophonists who are alumni
of the premier military bands of the
United States and teaching faculty
at America's leading music schools,
the Capitol Quartet has captured the
imaginations of critics and audiences
alike. Combining innovative reper-
toire with virtuosic playing and an
energetic, engaging stage presence,
the Quartet brings a unique brand of
entertainment to the concert and re-
cital stage.
Since its formation in 1991, the
Capitol Quartet has performed regu-
larly at major concert venues through-
out the United States, earning wide
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

Tech Prep, Preparing
Tomorrow's Workforce
Today
by James Grimes, Lake City Com-
munity College Tech Prep coordina-
tor
Today young people enter a work-
force that is dependent upon their
ability to understand complex theo-
ries and procedures in rapidly chang-
ing and new technologies. Have you
ever heard students ask, "Why do I
need to learn this math? I'll never
use it." Or, "What difference does it
make how well I write this report?"
After high school they learn that good
paying jobs go to the people with a
working knowledge of math, science,
technical, or communication skills.
Because they could not see why they
needed to apply themselves in school,
they are now at a disadvantage when
entering the workforce.
Education is calling for dramatic
changes. There is a national focus
that reflects the United States' need
to compete in a global marketplace.
Since the late 80s, there are many re-
ports documenting the challenges our
nation faces. We are in the midst of a
revolution in our society that is equal
to the industrial revolution a century
ago.
Tech Prep is a program that is re-
forming education and one that re-
quires a change in the mind set of
educators, parents, students, and the
community. Tech Prep builds new and
creative partnerships between second-
ary and postsecondary institutions;
academic and technical faculties; and
education and business communities.
Tech Prep is helping high school stu-
dents gain access to higher education
more easily by educating them about
the opportunities in technical careers
and associate degree programs.
In 1991, a U.S. Department of
Labor report noted, ."more than half
our young people leave school with-
out the knowledge or foundation re-
quired to find and hold a job." While
there were programs for students who
were high achievers and programs
for students needing special atten-
tion, the majority of the high school
population did not fall into one of
those categories. Where were the
programs for the students who didn't
have educational or career plans after
high school? According to Preparing
Florida's Workforce for Tomorrow's
Global Economy, young people leave
high schools and are not prepared for
college or work.
Someimportant facts to remember
about Tech Prep: historically, 80 per-
cent of new jobs require education be-
yond high school, but not necessarily
a four-year degree; nearly two-thirds
of high school dropouts come from
le general education program: one-
quarter of students never complete
high school; less than 50 percent of
those attending universities, graduate
within 10 years; one-third of public
school children come from 'at-risk'
families; community, technical, and
junior colleges are the largest and
fastest growing segment of.higher
education; by 2010, 85 percent of oc-
cupations will require some level of
education and training beyond a
high school diploma.
The solution to the above problems
was the "Tech Prep" program devel-
oped by Dr. Dale Parnell (considered
the father of the Tech Prep move-
ment) which was based on a solid
academic. foundation with real-life
applications. For over 16 years Tech
Prep programs have helped students
obtain the knowledge and skills need-
ed to be'successful in the workplace.
The number of students participating
in Tech Prep programs increases each
year.
In 2005-2006, Lake City Com-
munity College's district (Columbia,
Baker, Dixie, Gilchrist, and Union
counties) served over 2,800 TechPrep
students. The Tech Prep program pre-
pares students for high-skilled techni-
cal occupations and direct entry into
the workplace or it can help them
continue their education and earn an
associate degree or certificate.
The Tech Prep program begins in
the ninth grade and continues for two
more years at the postsecondary level
after high school. When a student en-
rolls in the Tech Prep program, they
choose a career program and are ad-
vised how to prepare for their chosen
career.

Tech Prep programs are available
in all five school districts served
by Lake City Community College.
Some of the programs offered are
business management, computers,
criminal justice, emergency medical
services, graphic design, landscape,
nursing, pharmacy management,
physical therapist assistant, and turf
.equipment management.
Ninth and tenth grade high school
students interested in Tech Prep
should contact their high school
guidance office and complete an
application. Since Tech Prep par-
ticipation requires four years of high
school preparation, students must be
enrolled in the program no later than
the beginning of the ninth grade.
Tech Prep is a great opportunity for
high school students to prepare for
their future, earn college credit while
in high school, and connect what they
learn to the real world.

Breast Cancer Fact
Sheet
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-
sumption.
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
all.
A Los Angeles Biomedical Re-
search Institute at Harbor-UCLA
Medical Center study found that
women treated for breast cancer who
followed a low-fat diet significantly
reduced their chances of a recur-
rence. For a selected group of wom-
en with breast cancer who were post-
menopausal and whose tumors were
lit[ [.io rn-' oi.,ll.. se siti,-'e lh< -i udx
.,i11nd l.'n.1 ,.lnniltaining t 1>-v. -fa tdiei
,. ma dccreiase~ u ict I .ufVnt
cancers.
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 61f having additional tests
conducted (i.e., breast ultrasound and
MRl).
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., hunpectomy 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-
mal treatment available for the stage
and biological characteristics of the
cancer, the patient's age and prefer-
ences, and the risks and benefits asso-
ciated with each treatment protocol.
Most women with breast cancer will
have some type of surgery. Surgery


is often combined with other treat-
ments such as radiation therapy, che-
I Ia1 l I.IIl' hormone lI I *.li' and/or
monoclonal antibody therapy. Treat-
ment guidelines from the National
Comprehensive Cancer Network
(NCCN) are available through the
American Cancer Society Web site at
www.cancer.org.
One exciting area of progress is the
development of treatments that target
certain types ol'tumors. For example,
the drug Ilerceptin has been success-
ful in treating women with particular-


ly aggressive breast tumors that have
a specific genetic makeup. These
tumors account for about 30 per-
cent of all breast cancers. Herceptin
has improved survival for many
women with advanced and/or meta-
static breast cancer. The most recent
studies suggest that this treatment
will also be successful for women
with early-stage breast cancer. Pre-
liminary results from the Study on
Tamoxifen and Raloxifene (STAR)
clinical trials reveal that Raloxifene
is just as effective as Tamoxifen at
reducing, recurrence of breast cancer.
Both Tamoxifen and Raloxifene were
developed by former.Society-grantee
Craig Jordan, PhD, DSc.


Importing Deer And Elk
Carcasses From CWD
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
(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-


apartment of Agriculture's Web site At
www.aphis.usda.gov/vs/nahps/cwd/
for the most up-to-date CWD cover-
age.
"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
into Florida by observing the restric-
tions placed on bringing carcasses in
from other areas where the disease
has been detected."
CWD, first identified in Colorado
in 1967, is a disease that affects the
central nervous system and is related
to "mad cow" disease in cattle arid
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.
Hunters still can bring back d6-
boned meat from any CWD-affected
region, as well as finished taxiderry
mounts, hides, skulls, antlers and
teeth as long as all soft tissue has
been removed. Whole, bone-in cat-
casses and parts are permitted to be
brought back to Florida if they were
harvested from non-affected CWD
areas.
To report sick or dead deer suS-
pected of having CWD, call tile
CWD hotline (866) 293-9282. Fir

b#3 would increase the number of
,votes needed to approve ballot initia-
jives from 50% +1 to 60% of those
voting on the measure.
SWhat Your Vote Means: NO

050% +1 approval would remain in
'place.

Amendment #4
Protect People, Especially Youth,
From Addiction, Disease and
Other Health Hazards of Using
Tobacco
Official Ballot Summary: To protect
people, especially youth, from addic-
tion, disease, and other health haz-
ards of using tobacco, the Legislature
shall use some Tobacco Settlement
money annually for a comprehen-
sive statewide tobacco education and
prevention program using Centers
for Disease Control best practices.
Specifies some program components,
emphasizing youth, requiring one-
third of total annual funding for ad-
vertising. Annual funding is 15% of
2005 Tobacco Settlement payments
to Florida, adjusted annually for in-
flation. Provides definitions. Effec-
tive immediately.
Amendment Type: Initiative by Pe-

Used to Place This on the Ballot?
Yes, more than $1 million was spent
with California-based PCI Consul-
tants to pay professionals to collect
signatures.
Top Contributors: $1.5 Million -

Association (Public Health, Dallas,
TX),$175,000 American Lung As-
sociation of Florida (Public Health,
Tallahassee, FL)
Arguments: FOR
In Florida, nearly 29,000 deaths are
attributable to tobacco use annually,
and the threat of tobacco is greatest
among youth. Florida receives more
than $360 million annually from the
tobacco settlement, yet only $1 mil-
lion is used to educate Florida's youth
about the dangers of tobacco use.
Factoring in inflation and increased
cost of advertising; $57 million ap-
pears to be both reasonable and fis-
cally responsible.


Arguments: AGAINST
Everyone agrees kids should not
smoke. However, the $57 million a
year will be coming out of our state's
general revenue budget, which means
less money for schools and roads.
Technically, this proposed amend-
ment could be achieved through the
legislature instead of the Constitu-
tion.
What Your Vote Means: YES
If approved by voters, Amendment
#4 would require that 15% ($57 mil-
lion) of the 2005 tobacco settlement
payments to Florida would fund a
statewide tobacco education and pre-
vention program.
What Your Vote Means: NO
If Amendment #4 is not approved
by voters, Florida would continue to
receive allocations as set by the Leg-
islature and approved by the Gover-
nor. Current allocations are set at 1%
of the tobacco settlement money.
Official Financial Impact Statement
to Appear on the Ballot: This amend-
ment requires state government to
appropriate approximately $57 mil-
lion in 2007 for the comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program. Thereafter, this
amount will increase annually with
inflation. This spending is expected
to reduce tobacco consumption. As
a result, some long-term savings to
state and local government health and
insurance programs are probable, but
indeterminate. Also, minor revenue
loss to state government is probable,
but indeterminate.

(Continued From Page Thirteen)
Additional Financial Effects Based
on the Financial Impact Estimating
Conference's Research and Public
Workshops: Education, prevention
and enforcement costs will increase.
The state will be required to appro-
priate approximately $57 million
from Tobacco Settlement funds in
2007, which will be adjusted annu-
ally for inflation. Because the To-
bacco Settlement funds are currently
fully, obligated, the requirement to
spend these dollars on the specified
programs will result in reductions to
existing programs or the replacement
of those dollars with $57 million of
other state funds. Some long-term
savings to state and local govern-
ment.health and insurance programs
is probable. The Comprehensive
Statewide Tobacco Education and
Prevention Program is expected to
reduce tobacco consumption. Be-
cause of this, state and local govern-
ments that offer health and insurance
programs will probably experience
some long-term savings. However,
the savings resulting from the pre-
vention program are indeterminate.
Many factors besides the prevention
program contribute to the decline of
tobacco use. In addition, the number
of persons, particularly youth, who
will stop using tobacco, for how long
they will stop, or who will never use
tobacco is unknown.
Minor loss of revenue to the state is
probable, but is indeterminate. Rev-


enue to the state from the Tobacco
Settlement payments and from the
Cigarette and Other Tobacco Prod-
ucts Taxes are dependent in part on
tobacco sales. The statewide cam-
paign proposed by the constitutional
amendment is expected to reduce
consumption by some unknown
amount. Many other factors may also
contribute to the decline of tobacco
use, including affected opinions
about tobacco companies following
the multi-state settlements, increas-
ing cost of cigarettes, increasing tax
rates on tobacco products, and the
implementation of smoking regula-
tions in public places. Consequently,
minor loss of revenue is probable, but
the amount attributable to the preven-
tion program cannot be determined.
Amendment #6
Increased Homestead Exemption
Official Ballot Summary: Propos-
ing amendment of the State Consti-
tution to increase the maximum ad-
ditional homestead exemption for
low-income seniors from $25,000 to
$50,000 and to schedule the amend-
ment to take effect January 1,2007.
Amendment Type: Legislative/Joint
Resolution, this amendment was
placed on the ballot by the Florida
Legislature during the 2006 Legisla-
tive Session. It was required to pass
both the Senate and House by a 60%
vote to be eligible for the ballot.

Florida's Lighthouse
Trail
Florida has more than 1,800 miles
of coastline, more than any other
state in the continental United States.
To ensure safe marine navigation
along that vast stretch of water-
front, Florida boasts an impressive
collection of lighthouses, including,
some of the nation's oldest and tall-
est. There are thirty lighthouses still
standing proud in Florida, Most of
these have been lovingly preserved
and Several have undergone coin-
plete restoration. Some invite visitors
to climb their spiraling staircases and
take in the dazzling view from their
lofty lanterns. Many"others, although
their towers aren't open to the public,
are located in public parks and can be
easily viewed at close range. Even
the spider-legged reef lighthouses
offshore can be conveniently viewed
by boat. But in every case, these ven-
erable beacons continue to illuminate
the pages of history. Be sure to have
your camera handy.
Because days and hours of opera-
tion vary greatly, and some lighthous-
es have minimum age and/or height
requirements for climbing their tow-
ers, we strongly recommend calling
the contact number provided before
traveling to visit the lighthouses.

This lighthouse holds the distinction
of being one of the first in Florida offi-
cially authorized by Congress. It was
built in 1824 and the present 161-foot
tall tower, constructed in 1874, is the
state's only spiral-banded lighthouse.
It also retains its original first-order
Fresnel (pronounced "fren'-el") lens.
Six flights of stairs with frequent
landings make the tower climb an
easy one and well worth the sweep-
ing view it affords of "America's
Oldest City." The beautifully restored
keeper's quarters houses a gift shop
and museum filled with period fur-
nishings from the lighthouse's early
years.
Since you will already be on A1A,
the easiest and most scenic route to
reach the next lighthouse is to simply
stay on that road and drive south about
50 miles to Daytona Beach. A1A is
also called Atlantic Ave. once you
reach Daytona Beach. Take Atlantic
Ave. to the end of the inlet and fol-
'low the signs to reach the lighthouse.
The Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse,
(386) 761-1821,the 175-foottall tow-
er, the second tallest in the U.S., was
completed in 1887 to guide mariners
as they navigated one of the nation's
most treacherous inlets. This is one of
only a handful of early light stations
that has retained all of its original
buildings Here you'll see the restored
keeper's house, a mariner's museum
and several magnificent Fresnel lens-
es. A 203-step climb brings you to the
lighthouse's gallery and a panoramic
view of the Atlantic coast.
To find the next lighthouse at Jupi-
ter Inlet, head back north on A1A ap-
proximately five miles and turn left
on Dunlawton Blvd. Follow Dun-
lawton five miles west to 1-95. Head
south on 1-95 for 130 miles to the
S.R. 70/Okeechobee Rd. exit (Exit
129). Bear right on Okeechobee Rd.,
then turn left on S. Kings Hwy. to
get to the entrance ramp for Florida's
Turnpike. Take the turnpike south 37
miles to the Indiantown Rd./Jupiter
exit (Exit 116). Turn left on Indi-
antown Rd.. and drive five miles to
U.S. 1, where you again turn left. At
the first stoplight, turn right on C.R.


707/Beach Rd. and then right again
into Lighthouse Park. Designed by
George Gordon Meade, the Jupiter.
Inlet Lighthouse's, (561) 747-8380,
distinctive red tower was first illurri-
nated in 1860. Meade was famous,
not only as a Union general, but also"
as the engineer of several revolt-
tionary screw-pile lighthouses. The-
108-foot tower sits on a 48-foot tall
ancient Indian shell mound and is
topped with its original first-order'
Fresnel lens, possibly. the oldest in
the state. A small museum in the,
tower's former oil storage building
showcases the station's long career.
Extensive renovation of the light-:
house was completed in 2000.
SOUTHEAST COAST
Cape Florida Lighthouse
To reach today's first'lighthouse,
return to 1-95 and drive south 80
miles to Miami. Take the Ricken-'
backer Causeway exit (Exit 1A),
continue east on the Causeway (S.R
913) across Biscayne Bay, past the
Miami Seaquarium and Miami Mtu-
seum of Science and Space Transit'
Planetarium and onto Key Biscayne
itself. The road will end at the Bill
Baggs Cape Florida State Park and
the Cape Florida Lighthouse, (305)
361-5811, Dade County's oldest
structure. The very first Cape Florida
lighthouse was built at the southern
tip of Key Biscayne but destroyed in,
1'836 during a Seminole attack. The
present tower, dating from 1847',
was rebuilt by George G. Meade in'
1855 to reinforce its construction.
An extensive restoration project
spearheaded by The Dade Heritage
Trust was completed in 2003, so the-
lighthouse and keeper's quarters to-
day faithfully reflect their 1855 ap-
pearance.
The drive to Key West is a de-
lightful experience. Drive west on
Rickenbacker Causeway to U.S. I
and turn south to Key West for the
154 mile drive surrounded by clear
skies, sparkling waters and charm.
ing vistas. Follow U.S. 1 (Truman
St.) through the city to Whitehead

Chiefland Urged To Go
Smoke-Free For Great
American Smokeout
Smoke-Free Policies Protect
Workers And Patrons From Toxic
Secondhand Smoke
The American Cancer Society to-
day marked its 30th annual Great
American Smokeout The Ameri-
can Cancer Society urges the resi-
dents of Levy, Gilchrist, Dixie and
Lafayette counties to make an effort


to quit smoking..
Secondhand smoke is a health haz-
ard that contains more than 4,000
chemicals, including over 60 car-
cinogens. In addition to increasing
the risk of heart disease, stroke, and
cancer in nonsmokers, secondhand
smoke is also responsible for 35,000
- 40,000 deaths from heart disease
and 3,000 lung cancer deaths in non-
smokers annually.
It's inconceivable, but the tobacco
industry spends more than $15.4 bil-


lion per year and more than $42 mil-
lion per day advertising and market-
ing its lethal products. Smoke-free
polices, like Florida's amendment
six, cover all workplaces and protect
workers and patrons from the dangers
of secondhand smoke. These poli-
cies also allow those most vulnerable
to secondhand smoke exposure the
elderly, children, and people with
-certain health conditions to enjoy
dining out without compromising
their health. Neither ventilation sys-
tems nor nonsmoking sections can


adequately protect people from ex-
posure to the free-floating poisons of
secondhand smoke.
More than 70% of smokers want to
quit and attempt to do so each year,
but without help, most fail. Smoking
cessation counseling and medications
are proven to help and effectively
improve quit rates. Telephone-based
services are a convenient and effec-
tive way to provide information and
counseling; therefore, Quitlines have


quickly become the most successful
means of achieving tobacco cessation
for large populations, nearly dou-
bling the chances that tobacco users
will quit successfully. The American
Cancer Society is dedicated to offer-
ing help to those that want to quit
smoking. Please call 1-800-ACS-
2345 (1-800-227-2345) to reach a
Quitline program near you.
The American Cancer Society is
dedicated to eliminating cancer as a


major health problem by saving lives,
diminishing suffering and preventing
cancer through research, education,
advocacy and service. Founded in
1913 and with national headquarters
in Atlanta, the Society has 14 region-
al Divisions and local offices in 3,400
communities, involving millions of
volunteers across the United States.

Please accept this letter of recommendation for Lucy
Swilley. All bias aside, Lucy is the best candidate for this
job. It's rather difficult to sum up in one letter all that Lucy represents.
As a life-long citizen of Gilchrist County, Lucy knows where Gilchrist County Schools have been and
where Gilchrist County Schools need to go to prepare our children for the future. Lucy, her siblings, her
nieces, and great-nieces, are all products of this school system. In my opinion, this gives Lucy a working
knowledge of Gilchrist County Schools which speaks volumes.
There's a running joke in our family that "Lucy can do more with a dime than the rest of us can do with a
dollar." She will not be happy that I have said this in a public format, but I feel it is an important statement
about her values.
Bottom line--operating within a budget has never been problematic for Lucy. When an elected official is
responsible for spending your hard-earned tax dollars, that becomes less of a joke and more of an asset for
you, the taxpayers.
It would be an honor for Lucy to serve on the School Board for a school system where she has roots. She
will work hard for the school system at all levels. Lucy will strive to be an ambassador of good will to
all--the students, the teachers, the administrators, and the parents. When you go to the polls'on November 7,
I hope you will vote for Lucy Swilley...Home Grown and Proud of It!

Citizens of Gilchrist County
Dear Citizens,
It is a pleasure and a privilege to give a recommendation for Ms. Lucy Swilley who is running for
School Board Member in our county. I believe she deserves your attention on November 7th.
As a thirty-one ) ear resident of Gilchrist County and an educator in both Gilchrist and Levy I have known
Lucy for mostof'this time, both professional. and socially. As a business.personishe has-always strived to '1
.__lese her cl_.ien and run her business in a professional and ethical manner. She has lived in Gilchrist all
her life and has been a loyal member of the Pine Grove Baptist Church. I have always known her to be very
honest and exercise the highest of integrity in all matters. Lucy is well known and loved by many people in
this area.
I can not think of a more worthy person to serve on the School Board of Gilchrist County and I hope that
you will consider her on election day. I know that she will be an asset to the School Board therefore, I will
be casting my vote for Lucy Swilley.

Sincerely,
JanO'Neill

To Whom It May Concern:
As a citizen of Gilchrist County, I feel the need to express my
concern for the School Board race in District 1. Gilchrist County
Needs a person of honesty and financial reliability in this office.
Lucy Swilley is my choice for School Board District 1. Lucy is a
business owner; she owns and operates 2 successful businesses
in he county. She practices well-founded business principles not only in her business life, but also in her
personal affairs as well. Lucy is the product of the Vocational Education programs offered by the Gilchrist
County Schools, and will fight to maintain what we have, and expand the courses offered to our students.
Lucy uses her vocational training to successfully operate her businesses and the family farm. If you desire a
School Board member who is financially stable, who is founded in sound business practices, and who will
fight for Vocational Education, vote with me for Lucy Swilley, School Board District 1.

Sincerely,
Clyde Forbes

To the Citizens of Gilchrist County,
We are writing this letter to endorse Lucy Swilley as our choice for the School Board Seat in District 1.
We have known Lucy since we moved to Trenton 20 years ago. Lucy is a dynamic, hard working lady who
is founded in integrity, dependability; charity and financial stability. She operates her 2 businesses under
these same principles and will carry them with her to the Gilchrist County School Board. In today's society
it is very important to elect officials who practice financial integrity. The school board spends our TAX
dollars and we feel that Lucy would do this wisely. The School Board is also a taxing authority in the
county -- and Lucy would exercise this option with the utmost discretion. Please help us elect Lucy Swilley
for Gilchrist County School Board District 1.

Respectfully,
John Ferguson, President
Tri-County Bank, Retired
Ann Ferguson

.. Ifyou are like, most people you are thoroiLigh lk confused about how to choose a candidate in the.upcom-
ing elections. -
Have a look at my friend and colleague, Lucy Swilley, for Gilchrist County School Board. I had the
opportunity to work with her at her business (Klip N Kurl Salon) for about 18 years. She is a professional
and enjoys working with people, and works hard to keep her business and personal life respectful and in a
Christian manner.
I feel she would be an asset to the Gilchrist County School Board.
Please help us elect Lucy on November 7,
My husband and myself
Linda H. Bridson and Bill Bridson

plus a fact-filled membership hand-
book. Four printed newsletters and
six e-newsletters will also be sent
to the gift recipients throughout the
year. Or for $35.00, each new mem-
ber who adopts a manatee will get
the adoption packet as well as a 24"
x 12" full-color 2007 wall calendar
featuring beautiful manatee photos
(while supplies last). A personalized
holiday message can be included
with each adoption to anywhere in
the world.
Kristy Mitchell, a Save the Mana-
tee Club member who lives near
Philadelphia, adopted a manatee for
her mom last Christmas. "My mom,
like me, is an animal lover," says
Kristy. "She was the one who origi-
nally adopted a manatee for me, so I
wanted to provide her with the same
experience."
There are 31 manatees to choose
from in the Club's three Florida
adoption programs at Blue Spring
State Park near Orange City, Homo-
sassa Springs Wildlife State Park in
Homosassa, and in the Tampa Bay
area. Kristy decided on Elaine, a
manatee from the Blue Spring pro-
gram, for her mom. Elaine, who has
been known to get into her fair share
of mischief at the park, had her first
calf in 1990 when she was five years
old. Manatees can live up to sixty
years of age, but hundreds are injured
or killed by boats every year, which
are the leading known cause of their
mortality. In fact, Elaine's mother
Emma, and two of her brothers were
killed by boats. Both Boomer and
Shane were Save the Manatee Club
adoptees, leaving Elaine and her off-
spring as the only known surviving
members of their family.
Patrick Rose, Executive Director of
Save the Manatee Club says, "Some-
times we have to share the hard facts
about the number of manatees killed
each year by boats. Even'though we
don't like to talk about it, we hope it
will help people understand how im-
portant it is to support our conserva-
tion efforts and save other manatees
from a similar fate."
Kristy, who loves to scuba dive,
hike and ride horses, is more than a
little concerned about the future of
Florida's manatees. "These beauti-
ful creatures may become extinct,"
she explains. "I worry because these
gentle animals are constantly being
brutally hurt and worse. I can only
hope that others will see them for the
amazing creatures that they are and
will try to help protect them."
Around 3,000 manatees exist in
Florida waters today and they are
listed as endangered by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service. Funds from
Save the Manatee Club's adoption
programs go toward education* and
conservation efforts.
"I think the Club is a wonderful
group working hard to save these
magnificent animals," adds Kristy.
"They need all the support they can
get. I hope to raise support and
awareness for the organization by
spreading the word to friends and
family in the northeast. This will ul-
timately help the manatees that I and
many others truly care about."

manatees, and to adopt one, con-
tact Save the Manatee Club at 500

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 he harm-
ful to children's growing bodies and
rapidly developing brains. 1
"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, aten 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 iut
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
on contaminants in seafood at http://

diseases, don't bite or sting, and thus
can be pretty, well, lovable.
Origin of the Beast:
Know in the scientific world
as Plecia nearctica Hardy, the love
bug is believed to have originated
in South America and traveled into
Texas, Louisiana, and then Florida
for the innocent tasks of mating and
migrating. They stay mostly in the
southern states, rarely traveling fur-
ther than South Carolina, because of
their intolerance for cold weather.
Surprisingly, they live most of their
lives in the larvae and pupae stages,
with adult females surviving a mere
2-3 days.
Urban Legends Abound:
It is theorized without much merit
- that the love bugs were a product
of a University of Florida experiment
gone wrong. In an attempt to control
the mosquito population, UF scien-
tists invented sterile female cross-
breeds that would mate with male
mosquitos and doom the population.
But the scientists accidentally created
males, too, and released them into the
wild.
Why We Can't 'Kill Them Off':
Many motorists and others an-
noyed by the love bugs ask that an in-
secticide be produced to control their
population growth. But research-
ers have tried this already and have
found it to be ineffective because the
large population is spread out over a
wide area.
On the plus side, love bugs aid
plant growth and do not carry dis-
eases. Killing them off could have
negative ecological effects. Instead,
natural predators like birds have al-
ready reduced the population over
the years.
But What About My Car?:
The body fluids eat into your new
paint or the bodies themselves cause
your radiator to overheat. Even when
you try to wash it off, the film left be-
hind can stick for days. It's a pain.
There is a solution, though. Try
driving in the early morning or late
evening hours, when the bugs are less
likely to be flying and mating. You
can also opt to drive slower, walk, or
bike.


Tell Me W\ hat Iou Are
Don't tell me what you will do
when you have time to spare; Tell me
what you did today to ease a load of
care.
Don't tell me what you will give
when your ship comes in from sea;
Tell me what you gave today a fet-
tered soul to free.
Don't tell me the dream you have
of conquest still afar; Don't say what
you hope to be, but tell me what you
are.

MEETS: IST TUESDAY


American Legion Airs
** Golden Corral Restaurants will honor Veterans on November 13, 2006 **
A hearty "Thank You, and Well Done!" to Major Stroupe of Trenton Post 91 for
tillg in last week. The Fall Conference in Orlando was informative and had several
"schools" for different positions in the American Legion Posts. Information on the
Post Chaplain and Sergeant-at-Arms positions was picked up and will be distributed to
Posts 91 and 149 in the coming meeting,. The Department committee meetings were
held and the Chairs of the committees reported on progress made so far this year, as
well as the plans to complete the programs. The main thrust of the meetings, was as
always, how to increase and hold members in the Posts and how to involve them in the
Legion's programs. The planning of these committees will be brought to completion
throughout this coming year, with the help of the Legionnaires across this Nation.
Tuesday, November 7, 2006 is the regular meeting day for Post 149 in Newberry.
All Post 149 Legionnaires are asked to attend this important meeting. It concerns the
Post By-Laws change that will require a vote of the membership. If you care about
the future of American Legion Post 149, be there! The meeting is only an hour and
starts at 7:00 PM, so cast your ballot in the State General Election and then come to
Post 149 and participate in the Post ballot.
Don't forget about the Veterans Day Parade in Trenton on Friday, November 10,
2006. The parade will start off from the High School parking lot and continue down
US-129 to just past the Courthouse in Trenton. Afterward there will be hamburgers
and hot dogs at the Trenton Train Depot, provided by the Gilchrist County Historical
Society and other contributing sponsors.
Any and all organizations wishing to honor Veterans of the Armed Forces are
welcome to participate, but must contact Major Stroupe at the Gilchrist County
Service Office and get further instructions from him. The Grand Marshal for this
year's parade is "one of us", a former US Army soldier, Candace May, formerly of
Bell, who was wounded in Iraq and received the Purple Heart.
The parade, in honor of our Nation's Armed Forces Veterans is honored to have
Candace as the Grand Marshall. Make plans to be in or be part of a cheering section as
the parade comes marching down the street. For more information contact the
Gilchrist County Service Officer.
Trenton Post 91 is looking for a shed to store some of the overflow of equipment
(chairs, tables, etc.) to make more room inside the Post Home. If you have a shed that,
can be moved to the Post, or wish to make a donation toward a shed, contact one of,
the Post Officers for more information.
Newberry Post 149 will have a small contingent of Legionnaires to go to an
early breakfast in Gainesville on Saturday, November 11, 2006. Afterwards the group
will head to Kanapaha Veterans Park on S.W. 75th Street in Gainesville for the
Veterans Day program there. For those interested in going, contact the Post 149
Commander or Adjutant at 352-472-6125 and leave a message.
Bring a friend and.fellow veteran with you when you come to the Post meetings.
Let's not keep the American Legion a secret. Spread the word. Veterans wanted to
help by continuing to serve America and her veterans, communities and the youth of
those communities.
Remember our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers every day,. and here
at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, their widows and families and the
families of those on active duty now, helping out when and where you can.
For God and Country
Major Stroupe

Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption
Effective Aug. 1, 2006, anyone 16
years or older and born after May
31, 1975 can hunt under the super-
vision of a licensed hunter, 21 or
older, without having to complete the
state's hunter safety certification. The
newly established "Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption" enables those
persons to purchase a Florida hunting
license and hunt during a one-year
trial basis.
The new mentoring exemption was
passed by the Florida Legislature to
help persuade more people to expe-
rience hunting. It is designed to en-
courage experienced hunters to teach
novice hunters about safety, ethics,
wildlife, hunting skills and respect
for Florida's outdoors.
Until now, everyone 16 or over,
and born after May 31, 1975, needed
to complete the hunter safety require-
ment before they were allowed to buy
a hunting license.
"This should be a great incen-,
tive for getting more people to give
hunting' a'try;-ahnd'hopefull,, we can
hook iomne of these folks oithe hunt-
ing tradition," said Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
hunter safety coordinator Bill Cline.
"If a novice hunter enjoys the sport,
we hope they take the hunter safety
course and continue the experience
for years to come."
Individuals taking advantage of
this try-before-you-buy approach
would have to take and pass a hunter
safety class to be eligible to purchase
a hunting license and hunt the fol-
lowing year.


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 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. Boaters
should be prepared to provide the in-
cident 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.

cies' manatee programs, visit My-

and was chased down to the Saints'
9-yard line. Fowler on a third down
connected with lasimone for a 5-yard
touchdown pass. Devin Taylor's ex-


tra point kick tied the game at 7-7.
As the weather began to take a turn
for the worse in the second period,
St. John put together another offense
drive that was capped by a 6-yard
touchdown run .by Art Gifford. Pye
added the extra point kick to give the


Saints a 14-7 lead.
With moments remaining in the
first half, Fowler found Jonathan
Jones receptive to a 19-yard pass for
a touchdown. Devin Taylor kept the
Bulldogs clinched as he kicked an
extra point to tie the game at 14-14.

The second half of this game was
very wet. The field conditions became
sloppy and most of the fans slipped
away before the electrical storm be-
gan. In the fourth period with :41
seconds remaining in regulation, this
game was stopped due to an electrical
storm that had blown into the area.
The fans and the players escaped to
cover to await the decision of when
the game would be completed.
At 10:00 p.m. the FHSAA officials
met with the two participating schools
representatives and determined the
game could resume. The two teams
returned to the field with :41 seconds
remaining in the final period. Neither
team scored in the seconds remaining
in the fourth period.
In overtime, the Bulldogs took the
ball first. Quarterback Justin Fowler
caught Brandon Ridgeway open and
connected with the senior wide re-
ceiver on a 10-yard pass for a touch-
down. The Bulldogs had the game
won, but they were forced to stop St.
John from getting into the end zone
to tie the game. The Saints had the
opportunity but were unable to get it
done. The Bulldogs took the wet and
sloppy contest 20-14.


The Bulldogs were led on offense
by quarterback Justin Fowler as he
completed 11 of 25 passes for 155
yards with 1 interception. Bell's Lee
Carlisle set the stage for the Bell
rushing attack with 19 carries for
123 yards. The Bulldog's defense
limited their opponents to 165 yards
of total offense. Bell's Robby Heck
intercepted St. John's Chris Decker.
Decker completed 8 of 12 passes for
72 yards.
The Bulldogs held an apprecia-
tion program during the halftime
intermission. Bell High School and
the Gilchrist County School Board
presented plaques of appreciation to
Mrs. Janet Smith-Rejimbal, Mr. and
Mrs. William Smith, Jr. and family
for their donation of a new football
scoreboard that was erected at the
south end of the bone yard. "Words
can't express the gratitude that we
feel for such a gracious gift to our
school and community," explained
Mr. Whitaker, Vice Principal of Bell
High School.
The Bulldogs will complete their
2006 season Friday night on the road
as they travel to Monticello to play

Letter To The Editor
(Continued from Page Two)
as to which candidate to vote for be-
fore these attacks, it is now.
I will vote for a candidate who
will bring respect to the position,
best represent my views, and address
the issues and matters related to the
office sought. I will not vote for a
candidate who is willing to condone
an anonymous attack of another indi-
vidual without regard for its impacts
on that individual's children, other
family, friends, and our community
as a whole.
Whomever perpetrated these at-
tacks should be exposed, ostracized,
tarred and feathered (no pun intend-
ed).
Sincerely,
/s/ Mark. J. Feather

Gilchrist County
Retiring School Board
Members
(Continued from Page One)
"gone from a country school to a
school that allows our students to
compete." She asks that the new
board members "listen, continue to
listen. School Board Members used
to be very political, now it's very pro-
fessional. Just do what's right."
Ronnie Smith has served our com-
munity for the past 16 years. He
said, "I'm going to truly miss it." He
plans to travel some and take care of
his small farm. He agreed with Gary
and Carol that the new Board Mem-
bers need to remember what their job
is, and listen to what it going on, be
aware of what is happening. All three
agreed that "School Board Members
and Superintendents come and go but
having Dr. Surrency in the Assistant
Superintendent Position has been a
very positive change."
Gilchrist County will miss you
Gary Rexroat, Carol Hyde-Buck and
Ronnie smith We know you will not
be far away and we Thank You for
your years of dedicated service to our
children and our community!
