Gilchrist Sheriff's Volunteers

Spread Thanksgiving Baskets to

Families in Need


By Anna Wild
This year marks the 10th year that
the volunteers with the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Department
have worked to acquire'donations
and make food baskets to ensure
that everyone has a delicious
Thanksgiving. The first year they
made 35 food baskets for the Gilchrist
County community, this year they
will provide 260 baskets to those
less fortunate. Funds for the turkeys
have come from Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce members and
Scaff's Supermarket in Bell. Scaff's
was able to provide the Sheriff's
Volunteers with a discounted price to
ensure that everyone in need would
receive a turkey this Thanksgiving.
The volunteers wanted to thank the
Gilchrist Education Foundation
for the use of their freezer until the
turkeys could be distributed. The
canned and dry goods were made


possible thanks to the Trenton
Medical Center in conjunction with
the Salvation Army. DeWayne
Yates with the Trenton Medical
Center coordinates with the Sheriff's
volunteers to ensure enough food is
provided for the families in need.
Various other groups in .Gilchrist
County, such as the Woman's Club,
take up donations of non-perishable
items as well. These extra items are
then added to the baskets for larger
families. Every family will receive a
turkey, mashed potatoes, corn muffin
mix, rice, stuffing, green beans, corn,
and cranberry sauce. Any food items
left over will in turn be donated to the
Department of Juvenile Justice who
with the Trenton Medical Center will
make Christmas Baskets for our area
families.
This is the time of year that many
organizations work hard to make sure
everyone has a festive holiday season.


Various social services agencies
within our county help provide the
sheriff's volunteers with the families
who will need these baskets. It
takes more than just a good idea to
make good things like this happen,
it takes people who care enough to
actually do the work and not ask for
anything in return except a "Thank
You". Our Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Department Volunteers are made up
of an estimated 20 such individuals
and they are looking for more.
If you would like to learn more
about becoming a volunteer, stop
by the Sheriff's office. They need
caring individuals who are willing to
bring their skills in and help others.
Myself and everyone at the Gilchrist
County Journal hope you and your
family have a very safe and blessed
Thanksgiving.


Suwannee Water Management

Declares Phase 1 Water Shortage


The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) governing
board today issued a Phase I Water
Shortage Advisory that will remain
in effect district-wide until further
notice.
The District covers all of Colum-
bia; Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, La-
fayette, Madison, Suwannee, Taylor
and Union counties, and portions of
Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson,
Levy and Putnam counties.
No mandatory restrictions are in
place, but water managers are calling
on all residential, commercial, agri-
cultural and industrial users to vol-
untarily reduce water consumption
through conservation measures.
Lack of rainfall has created a mod-
erate drought throughout the Su-
wannee River basin in Florida and


C/) C


Georgia, according to the National
Weather Service (NWS). Most areas
of the District are experiencing low
or extremely low groundwater and
surfacewater levels due to below-av-
erage monthly rainfall. With a cumu-
lative 12.17-inch rainfall deficit, the
year ending October 31, 2006 is the
eighth driest year since 1931.
New record monthly lows were
observed at the Aucilla River near
Lamont, the Steinhatchee River near
Cross City, and for the second month
in a row, the Santa Fe River near Fort
White. The end-of-month reading at
the Withlacoochee River near Pinetta
tied the historic monthly low at that
station, after setting a new low last
month.
Water shortage advisories are is-
sued by the District in accordance
with Florida Statutes and the Florida
Administrative Code, which give
them authority to implement water
shortage plans.
With the NWS predicting a return
to El Nifio weather patterns this win-
ter, District officials hope winter rains
will replenish the water resources to
levels where the advisory no longer
is needed. Until then, they offer some
important water-saving tips: Reduce
lawn/landscape irrigation. Don't wa-
ter between 10 a.m. 4 p.m. Install
an automatic rain shutoff switch on
irrigation system. Plant drought-
resistant trees, plants and grasses.
Equip hoses with automatic shutoff
nozzles.
Wash vehicles infrequently and
only on porous surfaces. Use a broom
or blower not a hose to clean side-
walks, driveways, parking areas. Fix
leaky faucets and toilets, which can
waste up to 100 gallons per day. Re-
place older fixtures with low-flow de-
vices. Don't let the water run while


brushing teeth, shaving, or washing
dishes. Take shorter showers; stay-
ing under 5 minutes can save 1,000
gallons per month. Don't use toilet
as a waste basket. Use appliances
efficiently (run full loads in clothes
washer and dishwasher).

City of Trenton and Gilchrist

County Join TAG to Work With

Other Counties and Municipalities

Involving SR 26


The Trenton City Commission
listened to a representative with
a Gainesville-based engineering
group that presented the two boards
with a detail slide show on how
the TRIPs interlocal committee
presentation would benefit the City
of Trenton and Gilchrist County
if the community leaders would
join the team. During the Monday
evening City of Trenton meeting, the
City Commission approved a motion
by Commissioner Bill Clifton with
a second from Commissioner Glen
Thigpen to participate in the Regional


Transportation Advisory Group.
The Gilchrist County Commission
agreed to also become involved
in this strategic planning group to
work with other local government
officials to provide input on how the
communities felt SR 26 should be
expanded.
City Commissioner Glen Thipgen
told the board that he would like to
see the commercial businesses in the
City of Trenton benefit from the ex-
pansion of SR 26. He explained that
the businesses would be better off if
the traffic from the four lanes or im-


proved highway would pass through
the municipality.
This engineering representative
was scheduled to meet with the Levy
County Board of County Commis-
sioners on Tuesday, November 21 at
9:00 a.m. to present this Transporta-
tion Advisory Group proposal for
their consideration. The engineering
group.is also scheduled to present this
program to the Fanning Spring City
Council to allow the local governing
boards along SR 26 to be involved in
this strategic planning group.

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
In my last column, I discussed the
proposed new fishing regulations that
are being reviewed for Florida's Gulf
coast. It will be sometime in 2007
before a decision is made but it will
reduce the daily bag limit on grouper,
snapper and extending the legal limit
for a keeper amberjack to over 30
inches in length.
On Saturday, I took the opportunity
to go to Suwannee and do some work'
at the camp as well as some fishing.
When Mark and I were putting the
boat in the water just after 8:00 a.m.
Saturday, I talked to a fellow that had
his family in their boat and they were
going trout fishing. He mentioned
that he had just recently missed
catching the largest trout he had ever
seen. He explained that he had the
speckled trout up to the side of the
boat but the fish was able to escape
being lifted out of the water when the
hooks pulled out of the fish's mouth.
His description made me think this
trout could have weighed between 5
and 7 pounds. .
I like to talk to people at the boat
ramp because they can often share
their enthusiasm about their trip, or
tell you about that big one that got
away .
Maik "and I decided to run out to'

some rocks in 25 feet of water to
catch some fish. We headed south
toward Cedar Key when we ran
across some baitfish. We stopped for
a few minutes in hopes of catching
some small live bait. Neither the live
bait nor the bottom fish cooperated at
this location.
We ran a few more miles before


we stopped in a new area that proved:
to be a new rewarding find. There
were a lot of boats fishing in a 2-3
mile area. Some were trolling while
others appeared to be bottom fishing.
We got located and anchored and
began to catch a few fish when I
looked toward Cedar Key and saw a
boat coming in our direction. I told
Mark that I wanted to move back
to where we had initially dropped
our marking buoy. By the time we
got setup and anchored there, that
same boat had slowed down and
was within 300 yards of us. The boat
made a single circle around us before
setting his anchor some 150 yards to
our southwest.
We continued to catch black fish
and pink mouth as long as we stayed
anchored. We had some live bait rods
in the water setting in rod holders
near the transom. Every so often, one
of the rods would get a quick bend in
it, but the .line would always be slack
by the time one of us had grabbed the
pole.
I estimate 15 minutes had past
when the boat behind us moved up to
our starboard side within 40 yards of
our location. -Mark explained, "The
entire gulf is wide open and he has to
get in the boat with us." Our position
was not comprised, but it is disturbing
when someone does this.
We fished a while longer catching
a few fish. We continued to look and
wait for that giroper bite, but it justL
did not materialize that day. We ended:
up having'a'good time even:thoughi
we almost didn't make it back in due
to the low tide just before 6:00 p.m.
I sincerely'hope that everyone has
a chance to spend some time with
their family this holiday and enjoy
the greatest blessing that we have.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
This week we continue our foray
into small cap stocks by looking at
two companies, both of which were
discussed here a year ago. While they
have grown somewhat beyond our
definition of small cap, i.e., a market
cap of less than a billion dollars,
they have been covered here for the
past two years and continue to show
excellent potential.
First up is Thor Industries, the
leading manufacturer of recreational
vehicles. Thor was founded onAugust
29,1980, when Wade F. B. Thompson
and Peter B. Orthwein acquired
Airstream, the most recognized name
in the RV industry. The name "Thor"
combined the first two letters of each
entrepreneur's name.
When I last wrote about Thor,
the stock was trading at $33.88 per
share. As of last week, the stock was
at ,$44.10 for an annual gain of 30
percent. My 2006 earnings estimate
was for $2.55 per share, with a target
price for the shares of $40.80. As
you can see, the company exceeded
expectations.
Thor's 2006 fiscal year ended July
31, and the company recently released
its annual report. Net' income for the
12 months was a record $172.464
million up 42 percent from $121.767
million a year ago. Earnings came
in at $3.05 per share, a 42 percent
increase. Sales for the 12 months
were a record $3.066 billion, a 20
percent increase over a year ago.
So what is the prognosis for the
stock going forward? The intrinsic
value of the shares using a discounted
earnings model with an earnings
growth rate of 12 percent and a
discount rate of 11 percent (average
return on the S&P 500) is $92.
Moving to a more conservative
free cash flow to the firm model by
Valuepro, with the same earnings
growth rate of 12 percent, produces
ari intrlnsl k alue'of '$7S '\\ ah the,
shares currently selling at $44, from
an intrinsic value pespetive there
appears to be considerable room for
advancement.

My current 2007 earnings estimate
for Thor is $3.15 per share. If the
multiple or P/E remains unchanged at
around 15, you have a $47 stock for
a gain of 7 percent over the coming
year. However, market conditions
could award the company a higher
multiple.

Another small cap you might want
to investigate is Toro. Toro has a
market cap of about 1.86 billion.-If
you are not familiar with Toro, then
you have never had the pleasure of
shopping for a lawn mower.
When I last discussed the stock a
year ago, Toro was trading at $37.71.
Last week the shares closed at $45.45,
for an annual gain of 21 percent.
My FY 2006 earnings estimate was
for $2.88 per share, a number I am
sticking with, based on the fact that
Toro reported record fiscal third
quarter net earnings of $40.3 million,
or 91 cents per share. Sales for the
quarter ended August 4 were a record
$477.9 million.


And Be Thankful
(Kent Heaton)


To be thankful for something is to express gratitude
from a heart that realizes the value of that which is well
done. When we think of that which is well done we
understand that an action was taken that allowed us to
receive a gracious blessing from another. This can be a
direct or indirect response. Thanksgiving is not an emotion
that serves only 'as a veneer for others to see but a deep
feeling of debt for what someone has done for us.
Our country is at war and our thanksgiving to those who
put themselves in harms way realizes the depth of sacrifice
they are willing to give. The reasons are not found in the
politics of a war but that young men and women are
willing to die for their country. This spirit of sacrifice is
found in every day life when others put themselves in peril
to save others. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a
man lay down his life for his friends" (John 15:13).
How can one repay the debt of sacrifice? There are no
deeds that can be done nor words found that can satisfy the
giving of life for another. Beyond this measure is to
understand how man can seek to satisfy the debt of one
who is God who came to our world, embodied the flesh in
every fashion and accept death for the penalty of sin. Can
man understand that? Will man grasp the magnitude of
such love? How is man to give homage to the love of God
through Jesus Christ His son? "Let the peace of Christ rule
in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one
body; and be thankful" (Colossians 3:15).
The peace of Christ is the tranquility of spirit that sees
man's depravation and God's glory on the bloody cross of
Calvary. "He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our


behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God
in Him" (2 Corinthians 5:21). The peace of Christ is our
rule of heart. Thanksgiving springs from hearts overflowing
with gratitude for the enormity of God's love for worthless
man. Jesus Christ became MY sin and bore MY sin on a
bloody cross. I could not bring righteousness before the
throne of the Almighty through my own works or goodness
or pleading or bloody sacrifices of goats and calves
(Hebrews 10:4). It took the Son of God willing to die for
me to bear my sin on a cross to bring peace between my
God and I.
"And be thankful" the text reads (Colossians 3:15).
How simple. How complete. Three words fill the expanse
of heaven and earth declaring the debt that can never be
paid but measured by the beating of my heart in
thanksgiving. The peace of Christ is on my lips in praise to
His great love. His peace fills my heart with humility that
He died for me for me! My hands are lifted above in
thanksgiving for the hands that were nailed to what should
have been my cross.
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only
begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not
perish, but have eternal life ... But he who practices the
truth comes to the Light, so that his deeds may be
manifested as having been wrought in God" (John
3:16,21). To be thankful to God is to be obedient to God.
Letting the peace of Christ rule in our hearts finds itself in
doing the will of the father. "Why do you call Me, 'Lord,
Lord,' and do not do what I say ... If you love Me, you will
keep My commandments" (John 6:46; 14:15). Be thankful.

Cocaine Exposure
Effects A Childs
Behavior
GAINESVILLE, FL. -The part
of the brain responsible for making
most decisions about how to behave
seems to develop less quickly in chil-
dren exposed to cocaine before they
were born, University of Florida re-
searchers have found.
Using a new form of magnetic reso-
nance imaging, researchers compared
28 adolescents exposed to a mix of
cocaine and other drugs in the womb
with
25 children whose mothers did not
use cocaine during pregnancy and
pinpointed subtle differences in how
the brain's frontal lobe developed.
Researchers noticed that pathways
in the frontal lobe, which connect to
other parts of the brain to send infor-
mation, were not as well-defined in
children exposed to cocaine before
birth, according to findings published
this month in the journal Pediatrics.
The children exposed to cocaine
also fared slightly worse on tests
designed to assess skills linked to the
frontal lobe, such as when to act and
when to stop, said Tamara D. Warner,
Ph.D., a UF research assistant profes-
sor of pediatrics and the study's lead
author.
"We actually found that there is a
relationship between the behavior
and the brair," Warner said. "There
were significant associations with
how well children were able to do
certain tasks and how well-developed
the connections in the brain were."
Some of the children whose moth-
ers did not use cocaine were exposed
toalcohol, tobacco and marijuana, but
they did not exhibit the same subtle
differences in the brain.
Because the mothers of children ex-
posed to cocaine used multiple drugs,
how,:these drugs interat.dwaslkely
a bigtpart of the problem, Warnersaid-.
The mothers lad takencc.ij,ie iandi
varying combinations of alcohol,
marijuana and tobacco, and the inter-
actions among these drugs often are
complicated, sometimes producing
additional toxic substances, Warner
added.
To get a better glimpse of the fron-
tal lobe, researchers used a form of
imaging that allowed them to see
how water flows through pathways
linked to other parts of the brain.
How the water moved through these
channels showed the researchers
how developed these pathways were
in each child's brain. The pathways
were more mature in children whose
mothers did not use cocaine and not
as well-formed in the children whose
mothers had, the study showed.
The children, who ranged in age
from 10 to 12 and were from simi-
lar socioeconomic backgrounds, also
participated in two behavioral tests
that Warner likened to "Simon Says"
types of activities. On one test, chil-
dren were asked to look at the word
"red" but then name the color of
the ink used to write the word. This
showed how well they were able to
ignore the instinct to read the written

By Cindy Jo Ayers
On Sunday night I watched a
program on the History Channel
titled Desperate Crossing, The Un-
told Story Of The Mayflower. I was
amazed at all those early pilgrims
went through just to arrive on the
shores of America. By the end of the
first winter over half the 102 pilgrims
were dead. I never realized that of the
original 102 who crossed over on the
Mayflower there were 32 children.
They had very little food and many
people suffered from scurvy before
they died. During most of the first
winter, there were only about three or
four people at a time healthy enough
to take care of those who were, very
ill. They were packed into one of
their first structures like. sardines in
a can.
Considering all those people had
to endure it is truly amazing to me
that they would have a Thanksgiv-
ing meal which lasted three days.
Bless their hearts those pilgrims had
it rough. You know they really want-
ed to come here to start a new life.
knowing that they would be risking
their lives in the attempt. What a risk
to take so they could freely practice
their religion.
So this year before you load up on
that bird and dressing just remember
those long ago pilgrims who settled
near Cape Cod in freezing weather,
remember they didn't have enough
to eat and were cold. If not for our
sakes but for theirs just remember to
be thankful for your full tummy and
all the blessings this country has re-
ceived since they came here in 1621.
I read somewhere and it makes
sense to me that one of the great
secrets to happiness is gratitude for
what we have. So this holiday let's
Al ,send up a praiei of thaukfulness'
for 'what we have including the free-
doam tI a.Liend churchh without ber
ing persecuted as the pilgrims were
while living in England.
Now, on to one of the big benefits
of celebrating Thanksgiving...the
huge turkey day feast.



1 gingerbread cake
(Use a cake mix or use the recipe
that follows)
2 pints of whipped cream, beaten
until stiff, add 1/2 cup powder sugar
and 1/2 teaspoon of Vanilla or use 1


large Cool
Whipl can sweetened condensed
milk
1 10-ounce can pumpkin
1 8-ounce cream cheese
2 small packages of French Vanilla
instant
pudding mix
3 cups cold milk
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans
In a large bowl beat softened cream
cheese until smooth, add pumpkin
and condensed milk and beat until
well combined, add milk and pud-
ding mix. Next add cinnamon beat
until mixture is smooth.
To assemble the trifle cut cake up
into one inch squares and cover bot-
tom of trifle bowl. Next add one inch
layer of pumpkin mixture. Then add
a one inch layer of whipped cream.
Then another layer of cake cubes,
then pumpkin mixture layer, then
whipped cream layer. Finish trifle by
sprinkling chopped pecans on top.
You can bake the gingerbread, whip
up the whipping cream and make
pumpkin mixture the night before.
On the morning of the dinner you
can layer all the layers in trifle bowl.
Keep cold until ready to serve.
Gingerbread Cake Recipe
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup molasses (light)
3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream
together the butter and sugar until
light and fluffy. In another bowl sift
together flour, baking soda, baking
powder, ground ginger, cinnamon,
and salt, set aside.
To the creamed butter and sugar
add eggs and molasses. Then beat
in flour and buttermilk, alternating a
small amount of each at a time until
well blended.
Bake in a 9x13 pan until done 30-40
minutes. Cool cake completely be-
fore cutting it into one inch pieces.
This year the crew at the Journal
enjoyed the above pumpkin trifle,
this is a combination of several reci-
pes and it is pretty good, if I do say
so myself.

Forty-three years ago, on November 22, 1963, President John F. Kennedy was shot
in Dallas, Texas. He died that day and three days later was buried with full military
honors at Arlington National Cemetery. One of the quotes from his inaugural address
in 1960 was "My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you -- ask
what can you do for your country." America's Armed Forces, Army, Navy, Air Force,
Marines and Coast Guard, have done just that. These men and women have given of
their time and efforts, blood sweat and tears, and even their lives in supporting
America and America's freedoms, as well as trying to bring those same freedoms to
other nations in this world. American fighting forces heeded the call in 1916 to aid
our allies in the First World War and again in WW II, in Korea, Vietnam, in Desert
Storm and now in Iraq and Afghanistan. The veteran has answered JFK's challenge
time after time, to carry freedom to the world.
Now is the time to ask America what will you do for our Veterans. The VA is not
properly funded to give the veteran proper care or to maintain the proper level of care
for our wounded coming home after the battle. The short term care may be OK, but
the long term care can be lacking. And it is not the doctors, nurses or technicians at
fault. They simply do not have the personnel and equipment for the long term
treatment of veterans. It is time to begin writing letters to the elected leadership of the
Nation, asking, no, DEMANDING that our veterans get proper treatment through
proper funding of the Veterans Administration hospitals. These veterans have "bourne
the battle" for America, now let America heal them and bring them back to health,
because it is their earned due.
Trenton American Legion Post 91 had the annual Thanksgiving Dinner last
Thursday night and the food was great! If you missed the meeting, you missed a good
time. Toys were collected for the US Marine Corps "Toys for Tots" and food items
were gathered for an area food pantry for the coming Thanksgiving baskets. If you
want to donate more toys, contact most any of the Tri-County Marine Corps League
for more information. Remember too, that some area families may be on short rations
this week and several local food pantries are helping to get baskets out to these
families, so help the pantries when and how you can.
Thanksgiving Day has been around a long, long time. President George
Washington proclaimed November 26, 1789, to be Thanksgiving Day, a day of prayer
and public thanksgiving in gratitude for the successful establishment of the new
American democracy. Sounds like the President meant for us to pray and to thank
God for this country. I wonder what the ACLU says about that?
Back on a serious note, do remember our Armed Forces, all around the world, in
your thoughts and prayers every day, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires,
veterans, their widows and the families of those called to active duty, helping out
however and whenever we can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely

Reminds Floridians
Of The Importance Of
Staying Healthy This
Flu Season
As our flu season continues, we
have started to see some localized flu
activity in the State. The Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) reminds
Floridians of the importance of stay-
ing healthy this season by seeking a
flu shot and practicing healthy hab-
its.
"With the holidays quickly ap-
proaching and family gatherings be-
ing planned, it's important that each
of us takes precautions in order to
protect ourselves and our loved ones
from influenza," said Secretary of
Health M. Rony Frangois, M.D.,
M.SPH.H -Ph.D. "Practicing healthy,
habits and getting a flu shot play
important roles in staying healthy.
Contact your primary care physician
today and discuss getting a flu shot
for yourself and your family."
With vaccine continuing to make its
way into the State, it is imperative to
remain aware of flu vaccine opportu-
nities throughout your community,
whether through your physician or
community clinics.
Annual influenza vaccination is rec-
ommended for the following groups:
Persons at high risk for influenza-re-
lated complications and severe dis-
ease, including children aged 6-59
months, pregnant women, persons 50
years or older, and persons of any age
with certain chronic medical condi-
tions, persons who live with, or care
for, persons at high risk. Health-care
workers in addition to receiving a flu
shot, Department Of Health recom-
mends the following practices to help
in staying healthy this season: Wash
your hands often with soap and wa-


placed in the Top 5 in Showmanship,
Junior and Amateur Western Plea-
sure, Western Horsemanship, Junior
and Amateur Western Trail, and Hunt
Seat Equitation. The successful team
was also honored as Florida IBHA's
All-Around Amateur in 2005, an
award they are currently competing
for again for 2006.
Charly and Lita's teamwork has
been a success, just as Charly and
"Dale" had winning the 2005 World
Champion Hunter Hack title last
year.
Runnin' Outta Time Farm will be
presenting these winners, along with
some upcoming prospects, at Canter-
bury Show Place in Newberry for the
annual Mid Florida Buckskin Asso-
ciation Futurity in October.

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

November 17-23
Proclaimed National
Farm-City Week
As wise stewards and innovative
entrepreneurs, farmers and ranchers
improve our well-being by working


to ensure a healthy and abundant ag-
ricultural supply. To succeed in this
important enterprise, they rely on
essential partnerships with people
in urban communities to supply, sell
and deliver finished products across
the country and around the world.
National Farm-City Week, celebrated
annually on the week leading to and
ending on Thanksgiving Day, recog-
nizes the importance of this coopera-
tive network to the success of Ameri-
ca's agricultural industry.'
"Our farmers know how to grow
the 280 different commodities, that
we produce in the state of Florida,"
said John Hoblick, president of the
Florida Farm Bureau Federation.
"They also know that it takes many
other partnerships in order for that
food to get to America's table, and
it's the success of those partnerships
that we celebrate during Farm-City
Week."
Today, the agricultural industry

Many students are scrambling to
bring their grades up before the end
of the 2nd nine weeks. Try to avoid
the urge to ease up on your studies
during the school year. Colleges look
at how well you are able to balance
your schoolwork with your activities
and still maintain a good GPA.
During this past week I met with
all the 12th grade students and gave
them important scholarship informa-
tion. Listed below are some of the
scholarships that are due in the next
coming weeks.

Squanto And
The Pilgrims
We've all heard the story of how
the Pilgrims, landing in Massachu-
setts on the Mayflower in 1620,
were ill equipped to survive the
harsh winters of the New World.
We've also heard how they met an
Indian of the
Pawtuxet tribe named Squanto who
befriended them, taught them how
to survive in their new wilderness
home, showed them how to plant
crops, and acted as an interpreter
with the Wampanoag tribe and its
chief, Massasoit.
The fact that he already knew
English before the Pilgrims landed
is what is remarkable.
Squanto probably was present at
the first Thanksgiving celebration
held by the Pilgrims. He, was cer-
tainly was there by 1621 -- after the
winter when the Puritans lost half
of their population to starvation and
diseases -- when another Indian,
Smoset, introduced Squanto to the
Pilgrim settlers, and he became a
member of their colony. Because
Squanto could speak English well,
Governor William Bradford asked
him to serve as his ambassador to
the Indian tribes.
But it was over a decade before the
Pilgrims landed that Squanto was
captured from Massachusetts and
taken, along with other Indians, by
anm English ship captain and.,sold
into slavery in Milaga, Spain.
There, Squanto was bought by a
Spanish monk, who treated him well,
freed him from slavery, and taught
him the Christian faith. Squanto
eventually made his way to Eng-
land -- where he either learned or
improved his English -- and worked
in the stables of a man named John
Slaney. Slaney sympathized with
Squanto's desire to return home, and
he, promised to put the Indian on the
first vessel bound for America.
It wasn't until 1618 -- ten years
after Squanto was first kidnapped --
that a ship was found. Finally, after
a decade of exile, Squanto returned
home. There he learned that his tribe
had died from an epidemic, probably
of smallpox brought by the earlier
English colonists. It was while he
was living among the Wampanoag
near present-day Plymouth, MA that
his friend Samoset introduced him
to the new Pilgrim settlers.
In 1622, as Squanto lay mortally
ill with fever while scouting east of
Plymouth, the Pilgrim leader Wil-
liam Bradford knelt at his bedside.
According to Bradford's diary,
Squanto asked him to "pray for him,
that he might go to the Englishmen's
God in heaven."
Squanto died November 1622,
having bequeathed his possessions
to the Pilgrims as remembrances of
his love."

Florida State Fair
Always in February, always in
Tampa, always fun! Nowhere But
the Fair: February 8-19, 2007.
The year was 1904. The American
flag had 45 stars, Theodore Roos-
evelt was president and the aver-
age American earned just 22 cents
an hour. That year, what would be
later known as the Florida State Fair
opened its gates in Tampa. Since
then, there has been incredible in-
ventions, wars, social change and
musical styles that have rocked each
generation. Still, the Florida State
Fair remains a showcase of the best
the state has to offer.


Fairgoers can also enjoy a spacious
midway that provides more than 100
rides and games and there is noth-
ing like fair food cotton candy,
ice cream, and things fried that you
never thought of frying. Exhibitors
come from all over the state to con-
tinue the tradition of showing off
their handiwork, children participat-
ing in 4H and FFA are eager to show
their skills and animals, and a visit
to the Florida State Fair isn't com-
plete without stepping back in time

FWC Sets December 6-7
Meeting At Key Largo
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) will
convene for a two-day meeting Dec.
6 at the Marriott Key Largo. That's at
mile marker 103.8. The meeting will
convene at 8:30 a.m. both days.
Wednesday's (Dec. 6) agenda in-
cludes review and discussion of the
recent evaluation of FWC's Alligator
Management Program. It concerns
comments from the public during an
online survey, during which some
respondents suggested broader alli-
gator hunting and more flexibility in
dealing with nuisance gators. FWC
Commissioners are not considering
rule changes on this issue at the mo-
ment.
The FWC will consider final action
on a proposed rule to change state
manatee protection zones in the St.
Johns River between the Fuller War-
ren Bridge and Reddie Point. .The
proposal is to conform FWC rules to
federal rules in the area.
Also on Wednesday, Commission-
ers will consider final action on es-
tablishing a no-anchor zone for sail-
boats and other vessels with masts in
an area between Big Pine Key and
Little Torch Key, south of U.S. 1.
Commissioners will discuss pro-
posed rules for wildlife manage-
ment areas for 2007-08 and draft
rule changes concerning permits for
Marine Turtle Program activities. In
addition, they will hear updates on is-
sues associated with vessel anchoring
and on a general management plan
for the Addition Lands in Big Cy-
press National Preserve. Also, Com-
missioners will discuss the strategic
focus of the FWC's Division of Law
Enforcement.
Wednesday's agenda also includes
review and discussion of work plans
for the FWC's divisions of Freshwa-
ter Fisheries Management, Hunting
and Game Management and Law En-
forcement.
The first item on Thursday's agen-
da is election of the new chairman
and vice chairman.
,In other business Thursday, Com-
missioners will take final action on
a proposed rule to extend the cur-
rent moratorium on reducing traps in
the spiny lobster fishery through the

Have you gotten your applica-
tion in to participate in the 18th an-
nual Festival of Lights festivities for
this year? You can call the Fanning
Springs Chamber at 352-463-9089 to
have one sent to you or go to our Web
site (www.fanningspringsflorida.
com) and download an application.
The Festival will be held at the Fan-
ning Springs State Park on Saturday,
December 9th starting at 9:00 a.m.
The Suwannee River Cruisers Boat
Club is busy selling those cute Yellow
Rubber Ducks again this year. This is
one of the highlights of the afternoon
when hundreds of these little Rubber
Ducks are dumped into the river at
3:30. The excitement really grows as
everyone cheers them on while they
hope the ones they picked out wins
the race! The first 3 winners receive
a nice cash prize, so make sure you
get yours picked out and ready for the
race!
Boaters you really need to get your
boat decorated and enter the Christ-
mas Boat Parade this year. Contact
Becky Sanford at 352-542-9710 for
information. This is the climax of the
day when everyone is drawn to the
Suwannee River to watch these beau-
tiful crafts cruise up the river. It takes
time and imagination to put it all to-
gether, but the effort is well worth it.
You'll see the flashlights and lighters
flashing along the river banks as you
pass by as the bystanders, and there
are many, want you to know they are
watching and cheering you on. The
cost to enter is only $20.00 and ev-
eryone entered wins a prize. First and
second place winners in small, me-
dium and large categories win cash
prizes and 3rd place winners receive
Gift certificates along with their tro-
phies. All others receive a trophy for
their entries.
The Tri County Cruisers Car Club
is also gearing up for another exciting
show this year. It seems that every
year this show grows and grows with
over a 100 entries. The folks come
from all over the State of Florida and
Georgia, and sometimes ever further,
to participate and show off their pride
and joy. These are some of the top
Classic Cars around and they are
proud to show them off. This part
of the Festival runs from 10:00 until
3 00 then the winners of the show
are announced
.ke,\ll Ita spmie great entertain-
ment all day long for you to enjoy as
well. Bring along a lawn chair so you
can relax and listen to the music and
there will be some karaoke as well,
so you can join in on the fun. The
Fanning Springs Community Church
Choir will provide Christmas Carols
before the Boat Parade gets under-
way at 6:30 p.m..
Drawings for some great prizes do-
nated by our local merchants will be
held every hour and the winners will
be announced from the stage. When
your name is called out, stop by the
Chamber tent and pick up your Cer-
tificate for that particular prize. Tick-
ets will be available at the Chamber
tent and also from some of the Cham-
ber members before the Festival.
There will be activities for everyone
to enjoy. Try your luck at Climbing
the Wall. This is an 8' by 8' realistic
granite rock that is 25' high and has
a route for everyone with five auto-
belayed routes with varying degrees
of difficulty. The climber is placed in
a harness that is attached to a safety
line connected to the Rose Auto-Be-
lay. Once the climber reaches the top
they push off and the auto-belay low-
ers the climber safely to the ground.
Surely you' will find just the right
gift for that hard-to-buy-for friend
or relative to complete your Christ-
mas list at one of the many vendors
with a wide selection to choose from.
Take a moment to enjoy some great
food as well. The Park will be charg-
ing a $5.00 fee per vehicle, and there
will be volunteers helping you park
safely. Bring your flashlight along to
assist you after dark along the river
bank and a chair to sit in during the
day to relax and enjoy the activities.
See you there!!

Jury Duty Scam
Please pass this on to everyone in
your email address book. It is spread-
ing fast so be prepared should you
get this call. Most of us take those
summons for jury duty seriously, but
enough people skip out on their civic
duty, that a new and ominous kind of
scam has surfaced.
Fall for it and your identity could
be stolen, reports CBS. In this con,
someone calls pretending to be a
court official who threateningly says
a warrant has been issued for your
arrest because you didn't show up
for jury duty. The caller claims to
be a jury coordinator. If you protest
that you never received a summons
for jury duty, the scammer asks you
for your Social Security number and
date of birth so he or she can verify
the information and cancel the arrest
warrant.
Sometimes they even ask for cred-
it card numbers. Give out any of this
information and bingo! Your identity
just got stolen.
The scam has been reported so
far in 11 states. This (scam) is par-
ticularly insidious because they use
,intimidation ;over thephone totry to
,bully people into giving information
*by pretending they're with ith6 ouift
system. The FBI and the federal court
system have issued nationwide alerts
on their web sites, warning consum-
ers about the fraud.

JofulU Heart Quiters


A spider may have frightened Ms. Muffet away but not our two Octo-
ber birthday gals, Mary Lou Ryder and Jackie Moore.


Bits and Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters & Crafters Of
North Gilchrist County
As you may have noticed, last
week's article was a wee bit behind
schedule so this time you're getting
two for the price of one.. .sort of a buy
one get one free.
Well, last time I wrote about how
fall had pranced around turning the
landscape into a patchwork quilt of
reds, yellows, burgundies, and rusts
tucked in amongst the trees still
sporting greenery and how in a heart-,
beat we were back to summer.
This time I'm gonna ask...how did
we get to winter? I mean what's up
with fall? Where did it go? Satur-
day when I went out to my car at
6:30 a.m. Jack Frost had been up to


his old tricks and I had to get water to
get all of the ice off my windshield.
Now, I call that winter. So I guess we
' can put away those bathing suits that
didn't look good on us anyway and
drag out those fleece sweatpants and
tops that cover a multitude of bulges.
At our November 1st meeting we
had twenty-one Joyful Hearts and
three eight foot tables laden with
more food than a body could imagine.
I can't begin to remember or describe
all the yummy desserts. What I am
sure of is this...no pilgrims ever had a
feast such as we shared with one an-
other. However, I'm quite sure they
were just as thankful, maybe even
more so.
Some folks really did work on
projects in the works, especially the
Swedish weavers, Martha Foster, Lu
Rowland, Betty Hicks, Jackie Moore,
and Alice Binns.

Elaine Nemeth and Ann Mangone
busied themselves quilting on our
odds and ends quilt while Marvine
Deer worked on her block of the
month quilt. Myrle Gilkey, Matty
Turner and Lera Townsend all stuck
with their crocheting and the rest of
us visited, set the food out, and pre-
pared to pig out.
And pig out we did. You would
have thought we hadn't had a meal
since heaven knows when and that
we weren't expecting another one
anywhere soon. Plates were piled
so high they needed side rails. You
want to try everything so you take a
dab of this and a dab of that and be-
fore you're even half way down the
line your plate runneth over. You tell
yourself you'll try the rest next go
round, but by the time there's room on
the plate, there's none in the tummy
and you have to stand up and giggle it
down just to make room for dessert.
Yes indeed, we do love to quilt, craft,
cook and EAT.
But before it's all over the food
disappears and everyone goes home
happy, thankful, and full as a tick.
At our next meeting on Wednes-
day, November 15th, we had twenty-
four cheerful Joyful Hearts anxious
to quilt, craft, and enjoy one another
friendship and stories. Elaine's sister,
Dee, was a welcomed treat for all.
Pat Luka has finished her block
of the month quilt and even added
more blocks to make it larger. It is
really lovely with old-fashioned hues
of greens, beiges, browns, and bur-
gundies. She helped Elaine Nemeth,
Ann Taylor, and Ann Mangone pin
a quilt on which Elaine is working.
Both Marvine Deer and Diana Lynn
worked on their block of the month
quilts. They have all the blocks fin-
ished and are now putting them to-
gether.
Myrle Gilkey was busy crochet-
ing an afghan, Lera Townsend was
crocheting hot pads, Matty Turner
was crocheting her multi-colored
squared afghan and praise the Lord
Paulene Marting has been able to be-
gin crocheting some. Even a stroke
can't keep that girl down and we all
give thanks for her recovery and for
hubby George who brings her to our
meetings and sits there the whole
tiTr.,, He nmut. feel like, a, rooster jp
a hen house. .. ..
, Rita Si mcoe was dopyg embrqog
dery work on some lovely Christmas
pillow and I embroidered some on
my dresser scarf. Mary Lou Ryder
worked on her Joyful Heart square
while Ruth Wilkerson knitted even
more baby things for the hospital.
Ann Mangone and Evelyn Wood
both were quilting at the frame and
of course the Swedish Weavers were
working fast and furiously. There was
Martha Foster with a great Christmas
tree motif, Lu Rowland, Heidi Kamp
with a lovely lavender design, Jackie
Moore, Betty Hicks, Alice Binns,
who was not only working on hers
but helping Alberta Swanner, who is
new at it.
Before we knew it the clock said
it's time to set aside your work, and
take out your lunch and enjoy. Elaine
said grace and we ate our lunches and
of course had ice cream. There are
no November birthdays so I did not
bake a cake but Evelyn brought in a
tasty persimmon snack that went ever
so well with ice cream but then what
doesn't.
I know some of you out there are
persnickety when it comes to eating
persimmons, but then you don't know
what you're missing. You probably
had an unpleasant run-in with an un-
ripe one or have heard tell of others
who have. And it's for sure those
unripe ones can cause your mouth to
pucker up something' pitiful. But I'm
here to tell you Evelyn knows a heap
of recipes that will change your mind
in a heartbeat, so give persimmons a
try.
Thanksgiving is just a few days
away and you may not receive this
until after it's officially over. While
we have set aside a national day of
thanksgiving we should be thankful
each and every day for our many and
undeserved blessings.
We are all blessed to live, regard-
less of all the terrible things that take
place, in the best of all times, espe-
cially in America. Despite the home-
less and those desperately poor, most
of us are blessed with much more
than the barest of necessities....we
have an abundance and often times
take it for granted. We often do not
take the time to think about or look
around and see those in need. We
often are far more concerned about
what we don't have and focus on it
rather than what we do have. There
is not enough paper or ink for us to
have to list all the things for which
we have to be thankful. At this spe-
cial time of the year and as we en-


ter the Christmas season let us stop
and think of those less fortunate than
us. Let us find ways that we might
serve them however that might be.
No deed is too small in His eyes. We
all can do something especially when
we consider all we have and enjoy.


Donate a toy, share a meal with
someone alone or ill. Visit a nurs-
ing. home, donate time or money to
a shelter. Distribute blankets to the
homeless, donate clothes no longer
worn, make up food baskets with
neighbors. Give and do what you
can. Even a smile to a stranger pass-
ing by is a gift worth giving.
And when you're inside your nice
cozy home, dressed in your warm
pajamas, robe and slippers, sipping
on a hot cup of tea or coffee, after
having eaten a full meal, I'm going
to ask you to pick up your Bible and
read Matthew 25:31-46 and decide
on which hand of the King you think
you'll be.
Our next Make It and Take It day
will be on Wednesday, November
29th. Bring along a hole punch, yarn
needles, and really thin ribbon. We
will finish our candy cane stockings
for the nursing home. Our next regu-
lar meeting will be our Christmas
gathering. We hope everyone will be
able to make it. Bring a finger food
and/or dessert to share.
'Til next time, God's blessings
to you and yours throughout this
Thanksgiving holiday.
A Joyful Heart

Tourism Opportunities
For Farmers
The UF/IFAS North Florida Re-
search and Education Center-Suwan-
nee Valley (NFREC-SV) and The
Original Florida Tourism Task Force
will be offering the first of three
workshops on Tourism Opportuni-
ties for Farmers in White Springs on
Wednesday, December 6, 2006 from
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Trail rides, U-Pick Farms, bird

of workshops will help area farm and
land owners start or improve such
businesses. "Attendees will be able
to explore the possibility of adding
tourism to their farming activities,"
said Linda Landrum, a UF/IFAS Re-

ecotourism and heritage tourism op-
portunities in addition to a self as-
sessment exercise for the producer
and a discussion of zoning and land
uses".
"In today's economy of rapidly
increasing production costs, it is ex-
tremely important that farmers diver-
sify their operations, possibly seeking
more profitable enterprises to meet
the consumer demand in the tourism
markets," said Landrum.
NFREC-SV serves the diverse agri-
cultural interests in the region includ-
ing vegetables, fruit crops, protected
culture, forestry, tobacco and other
forage crops. The Original Florida
Tourism Task Force is a tourism mar-
keting group that seeks to promote
yet preserve the natural and cultural
attractions of the area to increase the
number of visitors and extend their
stay. Participants that complete all
three workshops will be added to
the Original Florida's website which
reaches well over 100,000 visitors
monthly.
The registration fee is $10/person
per workshop which includes lunch,
refreshments and program materi-
als. The registration deadline for the
first workshop is December 1, 2006

Kidsafe Seafood
Highlights the
"Healthiest Fish In The
Sea" For Children
Parents committed to feeding their
children a healthy diet now have some
extra help, thanks to a new collabora-
tive effort of chefs, pediatricians, and
sustainable seafood experts, called
KidSafe Seafood. Spearheaded by
SeaWeb and the Roy Disney Family
Foundation in response to the increas-
ing interest in serving kids low-fat,
nutrient-rich seafood to counter the'
surge in childhood obesity and diet-
related illnesses, KidSafe Seafood
clearly identifies some of the healthi-
est seafood choices for kids-and
provides easy recipes and resources
for busy parents.
A new report released by the Na-
tional Academies Institute of Medi-
cine validates that a wide variety of
low-contaminant seafoods can play
an important part of a healthy diet for
children. It also acknowledges, how-
ever, that parents and other consum-
ers need clearer information to sort


through seafood risks and benefits.
While seafood offers omega-3 fatty
acids, lean protein, and a variety of
vitamins and minerals, most fish con-
tain at least trace amounts of toxic in-
dustrial pollutants, particularly mer-
cury and PCBs, which can be harm-
ful to children's growing bodies and
rapidly developing brains.
"As a pediatrician, I find that many
parents are confused about which fish
are best for kids. They know fish is
good for them, but they are unsure
about which types are safe to serve,"
said Dr. James Sears, a pediatrician
and author of parenting books who
helped develop KidSafe Seafood.
"Fish are one of the most nutritious
foods for kids, but it is important to
select the right ones."
The top ranking KidSafe Seafood
choices are: Wild Alaskan salmon
(pink, coho and chum), Tilapia (pref-
erably from the United States or Cen-
tral America), Shrimp (preferably
U.S. farmed, Oregon pink, & north-
em "salad" shrimp), Farmed bay
scallops, Farmed blue mus-
sels.

Pub. November 23, 2006b


Through a rigorous assessment
process that analyzed the 65 most
commonly eaten seafoods, the pro-
gram has identified the very best sea-
food choices for children-those that
are sufficiently low in mercury and
PCBs as to be safe for children, age
three and older, to eat at least once
a week, based on the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency's safety
guidelines. All KidSafe Seafoods
also meet high standards for nutri-
tion and environmental friendliness
to guide parents who are looking for
the all-around best choices.
"If our oceans have abundant fish
and pollution is reduced, we can
ensure an excellent source of lean
protein and essential fatty acids for
our families now and for future gen-
erations," said Dr. Becky Goldburg,
Senior Scientist with the non-profit
group Environmental Defense. "This
initiative underscores the connection
between human health and the envi-
ronment by highlighting seafood op-'
tions that are caught in a sustainable
way and low in contaminants in
other words, seafood that is both good
for you and good for the ocean."
"Our task as parents can no longer
be aboutjust getting kids to clean their
plates," adds Michel Nischan, chef
and owner with Paul Newman of The
Dressing Room, A Homegrown Res-
taurant in Westport, CT. A father of
five, Nischan changed how his own
family eats after one of his sons was
diagnosed with diabetes. "We have
to pick foods more carefully-for nu-
tritional value, for environmental
well-being, and to build a foundation
for lifelong healthy eating."
For complete information about
KidSafe Seafood, parents are encour-
aged to visit www.KidSafeSeafood.
org. The website showcases kid-
friendly recipes-including healthy
homemade fish sticks-and easy
cooking tips to help busy parents put
seafood on the table every week.
To make its assessments, the pro-
gram uses the best available state,
federal, and academic studies, sup-
plementing the limited data collected
by the FDA, under the guidance of a
panel of doctors and scientists. This
week's Institute of Medicine report
also acknowledged the need for better
government monitoring and research
of the levels and effects of seafood
containments. KidSafe Seafood will
continually reassess and update its
list, as new data becomes available.
KidSafe Seafood is a program of
SeaWeb, an independent communi-
cations-based, nonprofit organization
focused; on advancing ocean co.nserl
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://

Florida Prepaid College
Board And Wachovia
Work Together To
Educate Florida
Families About College
Savings
Florida Prepaid College Plan Open
Enrollment Started Monday, October
16th
Recognizing the importance of
higher education, the Florida Prepaid
College Board and Wachovia will
again this year educate families about
the benefits of the state-sponsored
college savings plans: the Florida
Prepaid College Plan and the Florida
College Investment Plan. Brochures
with information about the two col-
lege savings plans are available at
close to 800 Wachovia branches
throughout Florida. Additionally,
Wachovia will disseminate informa-
tion internally to all of its employ-
ees.
"Saving for college earlier, rather
than later, can be a real advantage in
making college affordable and attain-
able," says Ted Hoepner, Chairman
of the Florida Prepaid College Board.
"With the Florida Prepaid College
Plan, Florida families can plan ahead
and avoid the burden of future tuition
increases."
With the Florida Prepaid College
Plan, families can lock in the cost of
college tuition, local fees and dormi-
tory housing today. Once enrolled,
the plan payments are fixed, and will
never increase. When the child is
ready for college, the plan covers the
actual cost at any Florida public col-
lege or university, or the value of the
plan may be transferred to most pri-
vate colleges in Florida, select tech-
nical schools and most out-of-state
colleges.
The Florida Prepaid College Plan is
the largest program of its kind in the
country, with more than 1.1 million
contracts sold. The plan is financial-
ly guaranteed by the State of Flori-
da, making it a safe way to save. To
qualify, the child or the child's parent/
guardian must be a Florida resident.
Anyone, including parents, grandpar-
ents, friends or even businesses may
purchase a plan. Enrollment for the
Florida Prepaid College Plan started
Monday, October 16, 2006. To lock
in this year's rates, you must sign up
by January 31, 2007.
The Florida Prepaid College Board
also provides families with a second
option to save for college. The Flor-
ida College Inm estnieni Plan," which
offers a range of inmemunent options
ahd fle\ibilifY, ms b e'6i9B fdr'any

tuition, fees, room and board, books,
supplies, computers, and equipment
required by the college. The College
Investment Plan may be used at any
public or private accredited univer-
sity, community college or techni-
cal school anywhere in the country.
Families may enroll in the College
Investment Plan at any time of year,
and they decide how much and how
often they want to contribute to their
account. There are no Florida resi-
dency requirements for the College
Investment Plan, providing grand-
parents with another way to save for
college for their out-of-state grand-

The Lake City
Community College
Concert Chior Invited
To Perform At Carnegie
Hall
MidAmerica Productions in New
York City announced today that Mr.
Owen Wingate and the Lake City
Community College Choir have been
invited to perform Vivaldi's Gloria
in Carnegie Hall on April 22, 2007.
Members-of the choir will join with
other outstanding choruses, selected
from around the world to form a
symphonic chorus, accompanied by
the New England Symphonic En-
semble, conducted by Maestra Can-
dace Wicke.
Dr. Wicke, Conductor-in-Resi-
dence for MidAmerica Productions
at Carnegie Hall states: "This ex-
cellent chorus received an invitation
because of the quality and high level
of musicianship demonstrated by the
singers and the exceptional recom-
mendation given by Mr. Wingate's
choral colleagues. These wonder-
ful musicians not only represent the
quality of music and education on the
Lake City Community College cam-
pus, but also become musical ambas-
sadors for the entire region. This
rare and prestigious performance
opportunity is deserving of the com-
munity's recognition and support. I
encourage all business owners, civic
leaders, and the general public to be
generous in their financial support for
this extraordinary and unique concert
invitation."
The students will spend 5 days and
4 nights in New York City in prepa-
ration for their concert and approxi-
mately 9-10 hours in rehearsals over
the 5-day residency, culminating in a
performance in Carnegie Hall with a
professional orchestra and soloists.
They will also have time in their visit
to experience some of the sites of
New York City.
Candace Wicke made her Carnegie
Hall conducting debut in 2002, pre-
miering the Symphony of Psalms by
Imant Raminsh. As a champion of
new music, Dr. Wicke has premiered
new works in many of her Carnegie
Hall appearances including the World
Premiere of Stephen Edward's Rev-
elation and the New York Premiere
of the Ave Maria Mass. Having re-
cently conducted the Faure Requiem
in Carnegie Hall, Dr. lWicke i> sched-
uled to conduct the World Premiere
df the Requiem by Stejph'&i Edwards
in November of 2006.
Over the past 23 years, MidAm-
erica Productions has brought to-
gether conductors, choruses, soloists,
and orchestral musicians for perfor-
mances at some of the world's great-
est venues, especially at New York's
Isaac Stem Auditorium at Carnegie
Hall. In addition to presenting clas-
sic choral and instrumental works,
MidAmerica Productions has cham-
pioned the works of contemporary
composers. Regarding MidAmeri-
ca's series in Carnegie Hall and at
Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall,
there have been approximately 31
World Premieres, 16 United States
Premieres, and 50, New York Pre-
mieres. For more information about
MidAmerica Productions, please

Hunter Safety
Mentoring Exemption
Hunter Safety Mentoring Exemp-
tion effective Aug. 1, 2006, anyone
16 years or older and born after May
31, 1975 can hunt under the supervi-
sion of a licensed hunter, 21 or older,
without having to complete the state's
hunter safety certification. The newly
established "Hunter Safety Mentor-
ing Exemption" enables those per-
sons 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, and hopefully, we can
hook some of these folks on the 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.


HHS and FDA
Announce New Tools to
Help Consumers Use the
Nutrition Facts Label
The Department of Health and Hu-
man Services (HHS) and the Center
for Food Safety and Applied Nutri-
tion (CFSAN) in HHS's Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) today
announced the availability of two
new learning tools to help consum-
ers use the Nutrition Facts label to
choose nutritious foods and achieve
healthy weight management.
The tools are Make Your Calories
Count, a Web-based learning pro-
gram, and a new Nutrition Facts La-
bel brochure.
"The risk of many diseases and
health conditions may be reduced
through preventive actions and a
culture of wellness deters or dimin-
ishes debilitating and costly health
events. Individual health care is built
on a foundation of responsibility for
personal wellness. We at HHS are
pleased to introduce both the new
web-based program and the brochure,
which contribute to the nutrition fo-
cus of the department's prevention
priority," said Dr. John Agwunobi,
HHS Assistant Secretary for Health.
The Web-based program is part of
FDA's response to the recommenda-
tions of its Obesity Working Group,
in the group's 2004 report, Calories
Count. The program was based on
recommendations in the 2005 Di-
etary Guidelines for Americans. The
Dietary Guidelines are the founda-
tion of the federal government's sci-
ence-based advice designed to help
Americans choose diets that meet nu-
trient requirements without exceed-
ing calorie needs, promote health,
support active lives, and reduce the
risk of chronic disease.
"This learning program provides
a quick and simple way to educate
consumers on how to use the nutri-
tion facts label," said Dr. Andrew C.
von Eschenbach, Acting FDA Com-
missioner. "By making it easier for
consumers to understand the Nutri-
tion Facts label, the FDA is helping
them make quick and informed food
choices that contribute to lifelong
healthy eating habits."
Make Your Calories Count is an
interactive online learning program
that is also available in a down-
loadable format. It is designed to
help consumers understand and use
the Nutrition 'Facts label to plan a
healthy diet wh'hieriianaging. calorie
intake. The pirogam- guide'Ifeatures
an animated character called "Label-
man" who expertly leads the viewer
through a series of exercises on the
food label. The program includes ex-
ercises to help consumers explore the
relationship between serving sizes
and calories, while they learn how to
limit certain nutrients and get enough
of others. For simplicity, the program
presents two nutrients that should be
limited (saturated fat and sodium)
and two nutrients that should be con-
sumed in adequate amounts (fiber
and calcium).
Consumers -can use the Nutrition
Facts label to take control of their
caloric intake and weight and to
make healthy food choices, if they
know how. This program will show
consumers how, in part, by explain-
ing what serving sizes, percentages,
and daily values mean and how to
use them. This program is available
for online use and in a downloadable
format at www.cfsan.fda.gov/label-
man. FDA is making available a new
downloadable Nutrition Facts Label
brochure that is targeted for use by
consumers. The brochure can also
be used by health professionals to
teach people how to make healthier
food choices. The brochure describes
how consumers can use the Nutri-
tion Facts label as they shop and
plan meals. The brochure includes
information that will help consumers
understand the relationship between
calories and serving size, which may
help them use the label to manage
their intake of calories. This brochure
is available at http://www.cfsan.fda.
gov/-dms/lab-gen.html.
These new learning tools are part
of a commitment by HHS and FDA
to help reduce the number of over-
weight persons and obesity in Amer-
ica.

Elder Helpline
Over 50 million Americans provide
emotional, financial, nursing, social,
homemaking and other services to
loved ones who are frail, chronically
ill or disabled. Family caregivers can
provide care as much as 24 hours, sev-
en days per week. Whether provided
daily or intermittently, the physical
and emotional demands on caregiv-
ers often take a toll on the caregiver
and can put caregivers at greater risk
for health problems including physi-
cal illness such as infectious disease
such as colds and flu and mental ill-
nesses such as depression.
Public education and awareness are
key elements in providing assistance
to those who give so much by caring
for their loved ones at home. This
year the Mid-Florida Area Agency
on Aging (MFAAA) is supporting
the collaborative efforts between
the Administration on Aging and the
National Family Caregivers Associa-
tion in recognizing November as Na-
tional Family Caregiver Month. This
year's theme is "Believe in Yourself,
Protect Your Health, Reach Out for
Help". During this month, as well as
every day, caregivers are encouraged
to put this theme in action by taking
those steps to make their lives easier,
improve care and raise awareness
about the issues that family caregiv-
ers face.
One resource available to provide
assistance to family caregivers is
the National Caregiver Support Pro-
gram. The National Caregiver Sup-
port Program provides information,
education, support groups, respite,
and other services for caregivers of
persons 60 years of age or older and
giridp-aents 60 years of agge, o older
iia ', .,griaid,.ilJ i f ,fi"d inforr
mjation, about these and other services
and resources available to assist fam-
ily caregivers in your area, please
contact the Elder Helpline at 1-800-
96-Elder or 1-800-963-5337. The
Elder Helpline is available Monday
- Friday, 8.a.m. 5 p.m.
One of the biggest challenges of
caregiving is finding and accepting
help. By making that call, you are
taking the first step in "Believing in
Yourself, Protecting Your Health, and
Reaching Out for Help.

November Is National
Hospice Month
November is National Hospice
Month and the perfect time to talk
about what to look for in a quality
hospice should the need arise. It is
often thought that hospice organiza-
tions are all the same. Not true. When
you've seen one' hospice program,
you've only seen one hospice pro-
gram.
Hospice care, like any service, var-
ies from organization to organization.
When deciding on a hospice, some
key qualities to look for are respon-
siveness and access to quality care,
full-time physicians who make house
calls, frequency of staff visits, full-
time pharmacists, accessible medical
equipment, home health aides who
assist with personal care, and inpa-
tient acute and respite care. Hospice
care also should include caregiver
education and support, a strong vol-
unteer base, children's services, so-
cial workers and chaplains, bereave-
ment services before and after death
or loss, as well as provide services
regardless of ability to pay.
Responsiveness and access to qual-
ity care are critical regardless of
where patients call "home." A qual-
ity hospice provides access to patient
care and support 24 hours a day,
seven days a week. Staff and volun-
teers should be individuals who live


in the community they serve and who
are available to meet with or respond
to patients and families within two
hours of any need.
A quality hospice is committed to
keeping patients and families in con-
trol of their situation by offering op-
tions and respecting the choices they
make. This personalized care requires
that all hospice staff and volunteers
be trained to assist and support peo-
ple in making decisions about what
kind of care is needed, from whom,
and where that care will be provided.


Highly skilled staff trained to ac-
tively and aggressively manage pain
and other distressing symptoms are
important. This means nurses make
frequent home visits based on the
needs of each patient, and pain is as-
sessed daily. It means hospice care
aides are available to assist with per-
sonal care, as well as caregiver re-
spite and support.
In those situations when a patient is
unable to remain at "home," quality
hospices afford the option of inpa-
tient care centers. Care centers offer
a safe refuge of reassurance and sup-
port. They are an option for easing the
burden on caregivers when they need
a break from the day-to-day chal-
lenges of caring for a loved one with
life-limiting illness, or when a patient
needs help managing pain and symp-
toms during times of acute need. At
hospice care centers, patients are sur-
rounded by a team of doctors, nurses,
hospice care aides, social workers,
chaplains, volunteers, and their loved
ones in a comfortable and supportive
environment -- a home away from
home.
A quality hospice is dedicated to
maximizing life for patients and their
loved ones by providing accessible,
comprehensive services as a part of
its program, not by some contracted
vendor. Medical equipment needs are
easily met using technicians trained in
the special needs of hospice patients.
Full-time pharmacists are available
to keep track of up-to-date advances
in pain management and symptom
control. Full-time physicians on staff
make visits to patient homes and
nursing homes to stay abreast of the
patient's changing condition.
Where patient care is provided is
a personal choice of the patient and
family. A quality hospice provides
care wherever a patient calls home
-- whether it is in an assisted living
facility, a nursing home, a hospital
room, an apartment, a house, a trail-
er or car. Whether it is located in a
major metropolitan area or a remote
rural area, or has electricity and run-
ning water or not.
Quality hospice care supports the
entire family as well as the com-
munity. Outreach programs such as
caregiver education, advanced-care
planning workshops, individual and
family grief support, children's ser-
vices, and counseling are important
qualities to look for when selecting a
hospice.
Remember that when you or a
loved one is faced with a life-limit-
ing illness or loss, you have choices.
If you choose hospice, choose one
that serves you and your family
best. Choose a hospice that provides
comprehensive, compassionate care
while respecting each person's needs,
beliefs or wishes. Choose quality.
Choose carefully.

Roger Lord was the lucky hunter that saw this 7-point buck walk-
ing across the road before the dogs jumped him Monday morning in
a hunting club in Dixie County. The Trenton resident made a 250-
yard shot to take this buck Monday morning. This deer weighed 145
pounds and was estimated to be 3.5 years old.


Ryian Lassiter is shown with this 8 point killed recently. Ryan lives in
Lake Wales and is the son of Renee and Ed Lassiter and the grandson
of D. Ray and Diana Harrison.


Wilbur Brindle of Bell killed this really nice 17 point, 183 pound buck
on November 12, 2006 in Gilchrist County.

The Tiny Acorn
"Little b little," an acorn said, as it
slowly sank in its mossy bed; "I am
slowly growing every day, hidden
deep in the earth away." Little by
little each day it grew; downware it
sent out a thread-like root; up in the
air sprung a tiny shoot. Day after
day, and year after year. Little by lit-
tle the leaves appear; and the slender
branches spread far and wide, till the
mighty oak is the forest's pride.

Festival of Lights

show this year. It seems that every
year this show grows and grows with
over a 100 entries. The folks come
from all over the State of Florida and
Georgia, and sometimes ever further,
to participate and show off their pride
and joy. These are some of the top
Classic Cars around and they are
proud to show them off. This part of
the Festival runs from 10:00 a.m. un-
til 3:00 p.m. when the winners of the
show are announced.
We will have some great entertain-
ment all day long for you to enjoy as
well. Bring along a lawn chair so you
can relax and listen to the music and
there will be some karaoke as well,
so you can join in on the fun. The
Fanning Springs Community Church
Choir will provide Christmas Carols
before the Boat Parade gets under-
way at 6:30 PM.
Drawings for some great prizes do-
nated by our local merchants will be


held every hour and the winners will
be announced from the stage. When
your name is called out, stop by the
Chamber tent and. pick up your certif-
icate for that particular prize. Tickets
will be available at the Chamber tent
and also from some of the Chamber
members before the Festival.
There will be activities for everyone
to enjoy. Try your luck at climbing
the wall. This is an 8' by 8' realistic
granite rock that is 25' high and has
a route for everyone with five auto-
belayed routes with varying degrees
of difficulty. The climber is placed in
a harness that is attached to a safety
line connected to the Rose Auto-Be-
lay. Once the climber reaches the top
they push off and the auto-belay low-
ers the climber safely to the ground.
Surely you will find just the right
gift for that hard to buy for friend or
relative to complete your Christmas
list at one of the many vendors with a
wide selection to choose from. Take
a moment to enjoy some great food
as well.
The Park will be charging a $5.00
fee per vehicle, and there will be
volunteers helping you park safely.


Bring your flashlight along to assist
you after dark along the riverbank
and a chair to sit in during the day
to relax and enjoy the activities. See
you there!!

another test, which Warner likened
to "connect the dots," children were
asked to connect a series of numbers
in order on a page and then perform a
similar exercise alternating between
numbers and letters. The children in
the drug-exposed group named fewer
colors correctly and took longer to
adapt to connecting both numbers
and letters, Warner said.
Including observations about how
the brain looks and behavioral test
results in the study is important be-
cause it links an actual brain change
in children to a behavior change, said
Lynn T. Singer, a professor of pedi-


atrics, psychology and general medi-
cal sciences at Case Western Reserve
University who also studies prenatal
cocaine exposure in
children.
"This is one of the first findings that
shows there is a difference in the way
the brain works in (children exposed
to cocaine)," Singer said. "It's a very
important study in that we're get-
ting new evidence of specific brain
changes. The way the brain is wired
is different for these children."
Despite these subtle signs of dam-
age, UF researchers say children ex-
posed to cocaine before birth are still
faring far better than people predicted
in the 1980s, when they were dubbed
"crack babies." Past studies at UF
and 6ther institutions have shown
that children exposed to
cocaine before birth exhibit no more
behavioral problems as toddlers
than other children, have average IQ
scores and face only slight problem-
solving difficulties in school.
But the biggest questions won't be
answered until the children age, War-
ner said. Researchers do not know yet
how these differences in the brain's


frontal lobe will affect (
