The Sons of Confederate Veterans,
John Hance O'Steen Camp 770 held
their monthly meeting on Tuesday,
November 21, 2006. At the meeting
Commander Clement Lindsey had
asked Retired Sgt. Major, Major
Stroupe (yes, Major really is his first
name), Veterans Service Officer for
Gilchrist County and Staff Sergeant
Crystan Gilbert, U.S. Army Recruiter,
to speak to and assist in honoring all
veterans. Major Stroupe served in
the U.S. Army for 26 years and now
has the opportunity to help Veterans
every day. As a Veterans Service


Officer he explained to the audience
attending the special program that
he is in Gilchrist County to assist
veterans with their benefits and
rights. He explained there are still
homeless veterans that may be
able to receive assistance; they just
need to get in contact with their
areas veterans service officer. The
Veterans also have volunteers that
help with a volunteer transportation
network for disabled veterans.
These volunteers are qualified to
transport disabled veterans to various
appointments. They are also looking
for more volunteers to assist in this


transportation network. If you are
a veteran and have questions about
your benefits feel free to contact
Major Stroupe at (352) 463-3188.
Staff Sergeant Crystan Gilbert
also shared his appreciation of all
who have served our country in the
United State armed forces. Set.
Gilbert has served in the U.S. Army
for the past 12 years. He has served
in Iraq, Bosnia, and Croatia in the
Military Police. "Why is it I learn
more about WWII after watching a
Stcven Spielberg film than what my
own Grandfather tells me? Because
at the time when they came home it
(the war) had been very long, it was
connected to a lot of hardships, so it
was get over it and get on with life."
"What it comes down to is that we've
never really treated veterans well,
and now the page starts to turn." Sgt.
Gilbert explained. He shared some
of his experiences and answered
questions from the group about issues
happening today.
He thanked all the veterans in
the group for serving their country
and then along with Major Stroupe
and Commander Lindsey they
honored the attending veterans with
a Certificate of Appreciation and
a medal signifying the branch of
service they served.
The Sons of Confederate Veterans
wishes to thank all veterans for their
sacrifices and they hope you will take
the time to also say thank you to a
veteran you know, not just one day of
the year, but everyday.

signs of diabetes; if your blood
sugar is too high you may be dizzy,
irritable, grouchy, and thirsty a lot,
have dry/itchy skin, or have to go
to the bathroom often. Blood sugar
that is too low can lead to wet skin,
blurred vision, dizziness, hunger, and
anxiousness. Other signs of diabetes
include being very tired often, losing
weight without trying, having sores
that are slow to heal, or losing feeling
or having a tingling in your feet or
hands. Just having a couple of these
symptoms does not mean you have
diabetes, but if you do you need to
talk with your doctor and ask for a
blood test. The best blood test is
called an A1C test, which unlike the
traditional test which has you fast and
which many people can manipulate
by their diet close to testing time, this
AIC test will provide your physician
with a 3 month average number
which will be much more accurate.
Many things can manipulate your
blood sugar levels. Starches and high
sugar content foods are the major
culprits. To reduce your overall
risk of diabetes simply cut down on
sugars and starches. If you are aware
that you have a diabetes issue you
need to take it serious, just because
it "runs in the family" is no reason
to take this lightly. If you feel that
your sugar levels are too low use
a small amount of food, drink or
glucose tablets to bring it up. Most
people eat or drink too much and

The Trenton Rotary Club was
pleased to hear from special guest
Eileen Senecal, Case Manager for
Dixie, Gilchrist, & Levy Counties
and the Self Managing Awareness
Rural Team (SMART) on Monday,
November 27, 2006 during the
luncheon meeting. Eileen was kind
enough to share with the group some
very important information such
as warning signs of diabetes and
what can happen if you allow your
diabetes to go unchecked. Right now
20.8 million adults and children have
diabetes and over 6 million people
have diabetes and are unaware that
they have it. Simply put, diabetes
means too much sugar in your blood.
Your body creates sugar naturally
from the foods you eat, but if you eat
too much of these foods you end up
with too much sugar in your blood.
Over time this can lead to diabetes.
There are many early warning

Kathleen. Because of his love of
the native fellowship he experienced
after attending his first POW-WOW
many years ago, his family now
holds this annual POW-WOW in his
memory to honor all veterans. This
annual program also brings friends
together, and allows an opportunity

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers

Thanksgiving is a time of the fall
season when our family strives to.
get together and enjoy lunch and
fellowship at the hunting camp at
Magnolia near Cedar Key.
This year Carrie and Adam Mizell
from Callahan were coming over
Thursday morning. J was going down
to the camp to hunt Thursday morning
so he and Lyndsay would meet us at
the camp for lunch. Cindy Jo and I
were carrying some food and other
things to the camp Thursday before
lunch. Cindy Jo's brother, Lloyd Jr.
and his wife, Ibie and son, John would
also be at camp for lunch. Mike and
his wife Laura were also going to be
at the camp for lunch. Mike had gone
to the camp Wednesday afternoon
when he got off work in Chiefland
to enjoy hunting. Lloyd Jr. and Mike
worked to provide the young pork
that they grilled for the Thanksgiving
lunch. Cindy Jo's mother was also at
the camp Thursday morning to enjoy
the family and lunch. All of the ladies
bring a dish of their choice to add
along with the turkey and pork.
The tradition in Cindy Jo's family
is that baked turkey must be served
for Thanksgiving lunch. The turkey
is good, but it falls short when it is
compared to the grilled pork. I'm
very partial to pork, especially if the
meat is young, tender and cooked
juicy. This particular pig was well
seasoned and cooked over an open
pit that made it very tasty. The meal
was as good as ever, and the desserts
were even better.
Thursday morning J had good luck


and had taken a turkey gobbler. He
explained that there were two of the
turkeys, but the one that he took had
the thickest beard.


The photo above is a shot of J and
his turkey's fanned tail.

On Friday Adam and I went to
Suwannee and went fishing. He
wanted to go offshore so we set out
for the deep water. He wanted to
catch some grouper, and I am always
waiting for the next chance to have an
opportunity to go to the blue water.
I first thought that we could catch
keeper-size grouper in 30 feet of
water. I should have known better, but
we gave it a shot before we decided
to go to 40 feet. We spent some time
at 40-45 feet catching black fish,
and pink (flannel) mouth grunts but
were unable to catch any keeper-size
grouper. When we finally decided to
move out to 50- feet of water, it was'
at this depth that we began to catch
some grouper. The bite was slow
to begin with, but around 2:00 p.m.
things began to pickup and we caught
our fish in 15 minutes. The bite was
strange; usually when you have live

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
They call the conclusion of a chess
match the end game and it takes
special skills to master that part of
the contest. In the stock market, we
have the end-of-the-year-game. What
makes this time of the year so unique
is tax-loss selling and profit taking.
Specifically, the period between
mid-November and the end of the
year produce some of the best stock
buying opportunities of the entire
year. Many investors plan to do as
much as 80 percent of their annual
buying and selling during this
period.
End-of-the-year bottom fishing
is quite simple. You are looking for
companies whose shares are showing
weakness, either because they are part
of this tax-loss cycle, or are simply
undervalued as the year comes to a
close.
Each year I try to help those who
are short of investment ideas by
coming up with twelve candidates

bait all you have to do is get near
the structure. On this particular trip,
Adam caught the first fish on live
bait. This was our first keep size gag
grouper of the day. We were both
more excited when we got the fish
measured and into the cooler. We
continued to fish this spot for another
30 minutes, but never caught another
keeper.
We moved a short distance to
another rock pile that I had caught fish
at during a previous trip. We put our
live bait on the bottom, but nothing
happened. 1 finally got disgusted
and put my pole in a rod holder and
picked up a small jig. I said something
to Adam about catching more black
fish and grunt when I dropped the
bait to the bottom. When the jig hit
the bottom, the bite was instant, the
bend in the rod was serious and the
drag began to scream. I grabbed the
open portion of the spiuning reel ifi
an attempt to slow the drag, at the
same time as I reeled with a bent rod.
I knew if I could just get the fish off
the bottom, then I would have a good
chance at seeing what it might be.
I kept reeling and holding the spin
cast reel stopping the drag as much
as necessary. When I got the fish
to the surface, I could see why the
fight was so furious. I reached down
and grabbed the gag and lifted him
into the boat. I thought he was 22-
24 inches long. I measured him and
he turned out to be just short of 24
inches.
I handed the rod to Adam and
asked him to swap sides with me
and fish on this side of the boat. He
dropped the bait to the bottom and
suddenly, a repeat battle had begun.
We fished until the bite slowed and
we determined the three keepers were
all we were going to catch.
With the black fish, grunts, and
three gag grouper in the cooler this
would be a good catch for us that
day. We made our return trip of just
less than an hour back to McGriff
Channel and agreed the trip was a
good experience.


Littering And Respect For God
(Kent Heaton)


As we pulled to the red light and waited for the light to
change, I could not help but notice the big SUV next to us
and the driver eating a candy bar. What caught my eye was
the fact that as she ate her candy bar, she stuck her hand out
of the window and threw the wrappings to the road. The
light changed and she quietly moved ahead to her
destination. The wrappers blew from side to side with the
rush of traffic and then settled on the side of the road.
Evidence of other stories of littering was seen on the
roadside.
It would be a fair guess to believe that wherever this
person traveled, trash littered her path. Those who litter
show a level of disrespect for their fellow man and a
self-centered ideal of themselves. This is not about
environmental issues (although obvious results from
pollution have destroyed much of our world) but the mind
set of people who are filled with themselves; disregarding
their waste upon others. They do not want to foul their
automobiles with their own trash and they do not feel. a
responsibility to others. This type of person would find it
very difficult to give service to a Creator.
Pride and self-centered feelings of worth prohibit one
from embracing the will of God. "For all that is in the
world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and
the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world"
(1 John 2:16). The pride of life is about ME without
concern for others. This is the "Me, Me, Me" doctrine of
my wants, my desires, my will and my life. Few follow the
Lord because following Him demands servitude. "And
whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me,
cannot be my disciple" (Luke 14:27). To be a disciple of


Jesus Christ, we must empty ourselves of our pride and
arrogance and humbly submit to the will of God alone. Self
willed and prideful people cannot serve God.
The challenge of the gospel on the hearts of so many is
the need to give all to God. The rich man in Matthew 19
wanted to serve the Lord but on the terms the rich man had
set. "If you wish to be complete, go and sell your
possessions and give to the poor, and you will have
treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." But when the
young man heard this statement, he went away grieving;
for he was one who owned much property. And Jesus said
to His disciples, "Truly I say to you, it is hard for a rich
man to enter the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:21-23).
Why? Self was more important than sacrifice.
Ihe apostle Paul declared the price to be paid in service
to God: "I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no
longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life
which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of
God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me"
(Galatians 2:20). To crucify self is to nail to a cross the
desires of my will and accept the will of the Father. That is
exactly what Jesus did. He did not die on the cross for self
but for the Father. Service to God is living for His will and
His word; not my will and not my word. Life is governed
by the faith in Jesus Christ and where He leads I follow.
The person who littered expressed an attitude of heart.
This type of attitude will make it very difficult to find peace
in the comfort of God's will. Respecting God is to respect
His will in every way with full obedience. Do not litter. It
makes a mess on the roads and it makes a mess of your
heart.

whose performance I then review a
year later. These companies are not
an instant portfolio, where you simply
add water and mix. Rather they are
supposed to be a catalyst designed
to stimulate your own investment
thinking.
Furthermore, you cannot judge the
efficacy of any stock selection based
on a one year return. Recognize
that Wall Street offers up a long-
term average annual return of about
11 percent. Now ask yourself, how
upset you would be if your portfolio
had exhibited an 11 percent average
annual compounded return over the
past several years.
Furthermore, it is foolhardy to
believe that you can always pick
just those companies that will show
the highest price appreciation during
any given year. Swinging from the
rafters is a game for monkeys, not
investors.
Although it may not make you
the life of the party this holiday
season, if someone asks you about
your investment philosophy, simply
tell them that you try to match
the market's 11 percent average
compounded rate of return over a
period of 3 to 5 years.
The first six companies from
last year were Valero (47,53,13),
Starbucks (31,36,16), Exxon Mobil
(59,73,24), Oxford Industries
(55,52,-5), Tractor Supply (50,49,-2)
and Staples (23,26,13).
The numbers in parenthesis show
the price a year ago, the price as of
last week and the percentage gain or
loss. The simple average return for
those six companies over a period
of one year, not taking into account
dividends, is 9.83 percent. If you add
in dividends, the return goes to 10.55
percent.
Considering that our goal is a
minimum of 11 percent, which is the
average return on the S&P 500 index,
and that two of the picks had a small
loss, the performance probably rates
a B+, especially when you consider
that the S&P 500 numbers are 1,257
and 1,405, for a 12 percent gain.
During the same period the
Vanguard index fund (VFINX) had a
price gain of about 11 percent, based
on daily quotes.
So which companies are we
going to pick as the first six for the
upcoming year? Valero, Starbucks,
Staples and Exxon Mobil continue to
be viable candidates going forward.
To those, let's add Caterpillar and
Procter & Gamble.
Next week we will see how our
other six stocks performed along
with the overall return on the twelve
stocks.

American Legion Airs
Last week was Thanksgiving as everyone knows. As celebrated in America, there
was plenty to be thankful for. The food, fellowship, and family get-togethers,, and
then, the "Black Friday" sales. There was plenty to do, to visit, to eat, or shop and all
in the freedom that we have become accustomed to over the years. There have been
some "problems" if you traveled by land, sea or air, but that, in part, was due to the
amount of travelers going or coming from somewhere to someplace else, and for the
air travelers, the security systems in place. And yet, we can voice our opinions about
those problems without fear of retribution of the government. The freedom of
worship, the freedom to travel from state to state, to see family and friends, the
abundance of food available to buy, just so many freedoms, and some that we don't
always appreciate. These freedoms were made available by the Armed Forces
veterans who have served America over the years, protecting our Nation and the
freedoms we enjoy today. These veterans and their family support groups are just one
of the "things" America should be thankful for this year and every year. Today's
Armed Forces are scattered around the world on duty and in training to continue
protecting America from those opposed to our way of'government. Our government
may not be perfect, but it seems to be better than anything else in our world! The men
and women of the Nation's Armed Forces are away from family and loved ones on
many of our holidays, just like the veterans of previous years and wars, so be extra
thankful for them, just like Americans were of those veterans in the years past.
Saturday, December 2nd, Bell is having their annual Christmas Parade, and
Jamerson-Sheffield Post 91 of Florida's American Legion will have a float in the
parade. Any and all Legion members are.invited to join in, but be sure to wear your
Legion cap, too. Let the people of Bell know you are a part of the world's largest
Veteran Service Organization, and you are dedicated to continuing service to America,
her veterans and the community you live in. Bell will have craft booths to shop in as
well. Might as well plan to do some Christmas shopping while you are there. There
will be plenty of items to look through to find the right gift for that someone special.
Post 149 in Newberry will have their monthly meeting on Tuesday, December 5th
at 7:00 PM.. This is an important meeting to review ind vote on the Post Constitution
and By-Laws. Plan to attend this meeting and support your Post. There are not many
changes, but it needs to be up-dated to meet the "modern-day" requirements of the
Post.
Remember our Armed Forces each day in your thoughts and prayers, and here at
home, continue to watch over our Legionnaires, veterans and their widows, as well as
the families of those called to active duty, helping out however and whenever you can.
For God and Country,

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The best Christmas trees come
very close to exceeding nature.
Andy Rooney

The girls started a new Christmas
tradition this year. When I say girls,
I am referring to Carrie, Lyndsay and
I. The Friday after Thanksgiving my
daughter, daughter-in-law and I all
piled into the car and headed out for
a big ol' fun girls day out-an-about.
First we headed to Williston to pig out
at the Ivy House. We were already on
an eating roll from Thanksgiving we
decided there wasn't any sense stop-
ping on Friday.
We had a great time eating (love
their crispy chicken), visiting and we
did just a tiny little old bit of shop-
ping around the gift shop which is on
the upper story of the Ivy House.
I While in Williston we decided
that we should probably check out
a couple antique shops. We all three
agreed that we had much rather shop
downtown Williston than Gainesville
the day after Thanksgiving.
We returned to Trenton and picked
up John's white truck which has a
topper and headed out to the northern
part of Gilchrist County to shop for
that all important, ever special, one
of a kind Christmas tree. We made
our way to Jones' Christmas Tree
Farm.
Now you know, if you know me
at all, that there is just nothing I
love better than anything Southern.
I do declare that if you were to cut
me I would bleed magnolias, porch
swings and sweet ice tea. It does
pain me, but I do have to confess that
when it comes to a Christmas tree
those folks up north just grow the
prettiest ones. Mr. Jones has several
tree farms in Michigan and the week
before Thanksgiving he was way up
there cutting down beautiful balms,
fraser fir and spruce trees in the snow,
bless his heart.
" Meanwhile back in Gilchrist Mrs.
Jones was watching over the cypress,
sand pine, Virginia pine and cedar
which they grow on their local tree
farm. We all three picked out beauti-
ful trees and Lyndsay even found a
nice one for her mom. We had the ol'
white pickup loaded with trees when
we pulled through Bell. We celebrat-
ed our fine tree selections by stop-
ping in at Akins' Barbecue for a tall
sweet-sweet tea. Needless to say, "A
Good Time Was Had By All."

This week I'm including a few re-
ally good, tried and true recipes that
are used each year by our family.
Seems like we get called on more this


time of year than any other to bring
appetizers to Christmas events.




1 can whole water chestnuts
1 pound bacon
2 cups ketchup
2 cups dark brown sugar
Round toothpicks
Cut bacon strips in half and bake in
350 degree oven for about 5-8 min-
utes. I pre-bake the bacon so I can
drain off a little of the fat. Cook it just
long enough for it to be about half
done, it needs to be soft enough to
wrap around the water chestnut. Wrap
a piece of bacon around each water
chestnut and secure with a tooth-
pick. Mix ketchup and brown sugar
together until well blended. Dip each
bacon wrapped water chestnut in the
ketchup/sugar mixture and place on
well greased baking pan. Bake at 350
degrees for approximately 30 minutes
until bacon is completely cooked.
Note: Its good to line the pan with
foil so its easy to clean. If the chest-
nuts are real big you can cut them in-
half.



1 pound peeled', cooked shrimp
1 8-ounce package cream cheese,
softened
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Old Bay Seasoning.
Process shrimp in a food proces-
ser until coarsely chopped or chop by
hand. Add remaining ingredients and
process until smooth. Wrap in plastic
wrap and chill for a couple of hours.
Then shape into a ball and dust ball
" with Old Bay seasoning.
Our family serves Captain Wafers,
with this shrimp spread.



1 pound (4 cups grated sharp
cheese
I pound sausage patty meat
(uncooked)
3 cups of biscuit mix
(like Bisquick)
Cook crumbled sausage in pan un-
til done and drain. Put sausage back
into pan and add cheese, heat until
cheese is melted, stir in biscuit mix
and form small nickel size balls.
Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400
degree for 8-10 minutes.

Bronson Warns
Consumers About
Potential Identity
Theft Scams
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson is warning consumers about
the threat of identity theft during the
holiday shopping season. He is urg-;
ing people to protect their personal
information in order to reduce chanc-
es of having their identity stolen.
"The hustle and bustle of the shop-
ping season may make consumers
less aware of attempts by scam artists
to obtain their personal data," Bron-
son said. "It's imperative that the
public be on guard, especially during
the holidays."
Identity theft continues to be a se-
rious problem for people across the
United States and thieves are finding
more high-tech ways of assuming the
identities of unsuspecting victims and
committing financial fraud totaling in
the hundreds of millions of dollars.
All an identity thief needs is some-
one's name, address, Social Security
number and birth date--information
often found on driver's licenses and
personal checks. Thieves can also
get the information by stealing credit
card statements, pre-approved credit
card offers and tax information right
out of a mailbox or garbage can.
Here are some ways that identity
thieves work:
--They open a new credit card ac-
count, using your name, date of birth,
and Social Security number. When
they use the credit card and don't pay
the bills, the delinquent account is re-
ported on a victim's credit report.
-They may call a credit card issuer
and, pretending to be the legitimate
cardholder, change the mailing ad-
dress on a credit card account. Then
con artist runs up charges on the ac-
count. Because statements are being
sent to the new address, consumers
may not immediately realize they
have been victimized.
--They open a bank account in
someone else's name and write bad
checks on that account.
--They engage in the scam known
as "phishing," where they pretend to
be financial institutions or companies
and send email spam or Internet pop-
up messages to get you to reveal your
personal information.
--They may use someone's per-
sonal information to buy items on the
Internet.
Consumers can't prevent identity
theft, but they can reduce their chanc-


es of being a victim by observing the
following tips:
--Close all stagnant credit card ac-
counts and destroy the cards.
--Mail bills and checks from a post
office or mail drop.
--Shred financial documents and
paperwork with personal information
before discarding.
--Be careful about giving out per-
sonal information when you haven't
initiated the transaction.
--Do not respond to solicitations
sent by e-mail that direct you to a
web site. Many con artists will cre-

ate websites that look exactly like a
legitimate site. It is safer to enter a
retailer's known website so you are
logged onto the legitimate website.
--Order your credit reports at least
once a year from each of the three na-
tional credit bureaus so you can check
for errors and catch any identity theft
early. Call Experian (1-800-682-
7654), Equifax (1-800-685-1111)
and Trans Union (1-800-916-8800)
to order the reports and inform them
of any mistakes you find. Consum-
ers can get one free report from each
agency annually at www.AnnualCre-
ditReport.com.
--Follow up with creditors if bills
do not arrive on time. A missing
credit card bill could mean an identity
thief has taken over your credit card
account and changed your billing ad-
dress to cover his or her tracks.
--Protect your credit card, bank
and phone accounts with passwords.
Avoid using easily available infor-
mation such as your mother's maiden
name, your birth date, or the last four
digits of your Social Security num-
ber.
--Give your Social Security number
only when absolutely necessary. Ask
to use other types of identifiers when
possible. Do not put your Social Se-
curity number on your checks.
Consumers who want to report sus-
picious activities can call the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services hotline at 1(800)
HELPFLA (1-800-435-7352).

tries to get through life by looking
out for himself or herself first is in-
variably frustrated. Often this person
views life as a competition to deter-
mine who can accumulate more.
On the other hand, those who are
concerned for the well-being of oth-
ers are happier, more content, and
more satisfied. By giving without
expecting, they in turn receive the
things they need.
Giving is a simple concept that
works every time it is applied. There
will be people who don't appreciate
what you do, but it doesn't matter.
You are giving without anticipating
anything in return. Besides, there
will be many more who are thankful
for your efforts.
If you don't treat others well, buy-
ing a gift won't compensate for your
behavior. The recipient might like
what you give them but it won't make
up for your actions. You can't bribe
someone to forgive the way you treat
them, with a present.
The best gift you can receive is the
joy of making someone else happy.
Being unselfish is a wonderful way to
live. When you give with no ulterior
motives, your actions are seen as gen-
uine. Should you expect something
in return, your behavior is always
suspect. We all know people who
do nice things only when they want
something in return.
Make giving a daily routine. Don't
start and end with the holiday season.
Every day is a good day to do some-
thing nice. When people feel good
due to your actions, you can't help
but feel happy yourself. And that is
priceless. The most significant action
you can take is having a positive im-
pact on the lives of others.

the Springhouse Quilters.


Springhouse Quilters
News
Members of Springhouse Quilters
are always eager to learn new quilt-
ing techniques by taking advantage
of different classes and workshops.
Donna Hayes recently attended a
free- motion, collage quilting class
and constructed a beautiful wall
hanging of a Rooster. This project
was completed in a class sponsored
by the Suwannee Valley Quilt 'Shop.
Each year, the Program Chair-
person of Springhouse works up a
schedule of classes and workshops
for members to learn new techniques


and polish up on-their quilting tech-
niques. For 2007, there will be many
opportunities for members to learn
from advanced quilters how to im-
prove their quilting skills by taking
advantage of the planned workshops.
The workshops are usually at no cost
unless an outside instructor is invited
in to conduct a class. One of the great
advantages of belonging to the quilt
guild, is the opportunity to participate
in the workshops and classes. In ad-
dition, beginning in January, Spring-
house will offer beginning quilting
classes for their new 2007 members
without any prior quilting knowledge.
Some of the quilting workshops will


be in applique, piecing, scrap piecing
and ragging. Members are encour-
aged to participate in the workshops
each month.
Springhouse Quilters will be cel-
ebrating the Christmas season on De-
cember 4 with their annual Christmas
Party. The party will feature a show
and tell for members to display some
of their recently completed projects,
as well as sharing with each other in
a great fellowship time. Beginning
in January, the quilters will be .back
to their regular schedule of meetings
and workshops.
For complete information about
Springhouse .Quilters, contact Anna
Gilliam, 463-7922, or Lois Scott,

Woman's Club News
Our November meeting was host-
ed by Bridget Richardson and her
Welfare Committee. They served a
delicious buffet and created a lovely
table with an Autumnal theme. The
speaker was our own Anni Egan who
told us about the American Cancer
Society and their services to cancer
patients in the Tri-County area. Each
year thousands of people are diag-
nosed with cancer and the American
Cancer Society is the one place where
patients and their families can turn to
for free information, support and ser-
vices, such as transportation to doc-
tors appointments and treatments etc.
It was very informative as many of us
did not know that so many services
existed. For more information- call
1(800) 227-2345 or visit the website
www.cancer.org. Anni is involved
as a volunteer in the "Relay- for
Life" program which is an 18 hour,
overnight team event honoring can-
cer survivors. If you can volunteer,
sponsor or put a team together for the
next event at Chiefland Elementary
on April 20-21, 2007 contact her at
anni_egan@yahoo.com.
The revised by-laws were passed
but will not take effect until 'next
year. Gwen Walden gave a report on
[he fundraiser luncheon and Down
Home Days and we raised enough
funds to donate two scholarships.
She thanked everyone who helped on
both occasions. For those members
who have not yet received the Year-
book, contact Sharon Bard and she
will get one to you.
Instead of our regular meeting we
will be having our Christmas Party
on December 14th. It will be host-
ed by Sylvia Roberts and the Social
Committee. It will be a catered din-
ner for $15.00 per plate. Husbands
and adult guests are welcome but res-
ervations must be made by December
5th. Contact Sylvia at sylwil@svic.
net. There will be a Silent Auction
and if you have something you would
like to donate please bring it along. It
can be baked goods, arts, and crafts
or may be that gift you don't know
what to do with, that you received
last Christmas!

Adopt A Manatee For
Christmas
Spread the Joy!
Adopt a Manatee this Holiday Sea-
son.
This year, adopt a manatee for all
the wonderful people who are at the
top of your holiday list. They won't
actually get a real 10 foot, 1,000
pound manatee delivered to their
door, but for $25, Save the Manatee
Club, a 25 year old nonprofit organi-
zation, will send those special people
an adoption certificate, a photo and
life history of a manatee, plus a fact-
filled membership handbook. Four
printed newsletters and six e-news-
letters will also be sent to the gift re-
cipients throughout the 'year. Or for
$35, each new member 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 Cit, 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
all 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 ltke toiailk'abouti i, \e hope'it
will help'pebple understand hbw itm-
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
& 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."
For a variety of information on
manatees, and to adopt one, contact
Save the Manatee Club at 500 N.
Maitland Ave., Maitland, FL 32751,

On The Water
With Larry Nixon
CASHING IN ON THE LAST BIG
BITE OF THE YEAR
Shorter days, cool temperatures and
buck fever go a long ways toward
calming many an avid angler's desire
to put the boat in the water and go
fishing for trophy bass. But for every-
one of you who already has the tarp
over the boat, the rods and reels in the
closet and the remote control in your
hand, know this: autumn especially
mid-November to mid-December -


offers some terrific opportunities to
catch bass. In fact, it may be one of
the best times of the year.
The more the mercury dips, the
tighter the schools of baitfish will be.
And when baitfish schools get tight,
bass feed like crazy, gorging them-
selves for winter. For this reason, the
last bite of the year can also produce
some of the year's biggest fish. Also,
cold-weather bass fishing can be a
numbers game: where you find one,
there's bound to be more.
On warm sunny days, anglers can

often find fish relatively shallow,
even in December. Fish will often
gather on the first structure element
- the edge of a weed line or a rock
pile --off shore and ihe\ can be taken
on all manner of motion lures such as
crankbaits. Vibrating, rattling baits
like a BerkleyFrenzy Rattl'r are most
productive when water temperatures
are falling. Even a Gulp! Bat Wing
Frog fished like a buzzbait can coax a
hungry bass out from the inside of a
weedline. Later in the month, the fish.
are likely to be on the outside edges.
and turns.
But as the water temperature drops
even more, the fish generally head to-
ward deeper water and bottom baits
like Berkley Power Jigs or a drop-
shot rig are in order. Around this time
fishing becomes more vertical than
horizontal as anglers fish the bottom.
With steadily dropping temperatures
and steady winds the norm this time
of year, look for channel drop-offs
where high banks give you some
refuge from the wind, then work the
bottom structure.
There's plenty of time left in the
year for watching football and deer
hunting, so don't miss your chance
to cash in on the last big bite of the
year.

Take Stock In
Children Scholarships
During an October School Board
meeting, five "Take Stock In Chil-
dren" scholarship contracts were
presented and, signed. Jake Heming-
way, Donna Owens, from Bell High
School; Kyle O'Neal, Katie Quincey,
and Josh Rose, from Trenton High
School. All five families were very
excited and thrilled to be a part of this
scholarship program.
"Take Stock In Children" is a state-
wide, nonprofit program that provides
deserving low-income children with
college scholarships and guidance
from caring mentors. Once a student
is identified and selected, they must
sign a contract agreeing to stay drug
and crime free, maintain satisfactory
grades, exhibit good behavior, have a
financial need and be determined to
succeed.
Operating in more than 50 Flori-
da counties, this award is evidence
that "Take Stock In Children" is the
premier mentoring program in the
state of Florida. At the present time,
all students have been placed with
mentors; however, with Spring rap-
idly approaching, new scholarships
will be awarded to our county and
the need for more mentors will de-

County's TSIC Coordinator said "We
are touching tomorrow with today's
future!" If anyone is interested in


learning more about this program or
would be able to make a commitment
to donate one (1) hour a week of their
time to become a mentor for a stu-
dent, please contact Deborah Doug-
las, Gilchrist County School Board
at.(352) 463-3455. You can make a

Florida Retailers Expect
Consumer Spending To
Top National Estimates
For The Holidays
Survey shows gift cards are increas-
ing in popularity as holiday gifts
Shoppers in Florida are planning
to spend about 10 percent more than
shoppers nationwide this holiday sea-
son, according to a consumer survey
commissioned by the Florida Retail
Federation. About one-fifth of retail


industry sales occur during the holi-
day season of November and Decem-
ber, making these months the most
important sales period for retailers.
Florida shoppers said they planned
to spend an average of $682 on holi-
day gifts during the November and
December holiday shopping season,
according to the survey by national
firm Retail Forward. Nationwide,
non-Floridian shoppers estimated
their holiday gift spending at $617,
the survey said. In addition. 55 per-

cent of shoppers said they also plan
to make purchases for themselves
this holiday season; Floridian shop-
pers planned to spend an average of
$121 on these purchases, while non-
Floridian shoppers plan to spend an
average of $98.
The Florida Retail Federation is
forecasting a 6 percent increase in'
overall holiday sales in Florida this
year, topping national estimates of a
5 percent increase over the 2005 holi-
day season.
"The survey results tell us that
Florida consumers are feeling good
about their pocketbooks heading into
Thanksgiving weekend. That should.
translate into healthy sales for retail-
ers," said Rick McAllister, president
and CEO of the Florida Retail Fed-
eration. "The Florida economy is
humming along at a healthy pace,
gas prices are down, and we've made
it through the year with no major
storms. Holiday sales should be jin-
gling all the way to January."
The Retail Forward survey found
that gift cards and certificates are
likely to be the most popular gift
items this year, followed by cloth-
ing items, toys and games, books,
and music and video entertainment
items:
What types of gifts do you plan to
buy this holiday season?
1. Gift cards/gift certificates 61%
2. Clothing, clothing accessories or
shoes 54%
3. Toys/Dolls/Games (not video
games) 37%
4. Books 35%
5. Pre-recorded music or video
tapes, CDs or DVDs 32%
6. Personal care or beauty items
24%
7. Video games, video gaming sys-
tems or related accessories 21%
8. Home decor or home-related
furnishings 18%
9. Consumer electronics or person-
al computer-related accessories
18%
10. Sporting goods or leisure items
13%
There are some big differences
between men and women, however,
in what kind of gifts they're hoping
to receive for the holidays. When
they were asked "What types of gifts
would you like to receive this holiday
season?" Men were much more likely
to want electronics, computer acces-
sories and entertainment media like
DVDs and CDs. Women were much
more likely tovwant fine jewelry and
' lothingfas'holiday gifts.
In other findings from the survey,
more Floridians are planning to pur-
chase gift cards this year than last,
making them the top-ranked gift item.
Overall, 81 percent of shoppers said
they planned to purchase at least one
gift card this holiday season, and with
a statewide average of 4.9 gift cards
per consumer. In the 2005 survey,
about 70 percent of consumers said
they planned to buy at least one gift
card, with a statewide average of 4.4
gift cards per consumer. Floridians
planned to spend an average of $161
on gift cards this year, more than the-
national average of $143.
"Gift cards have taken off in popu-
larity, and retailers have responded by
increasing the offerings for consum-
ers and making them a bigger part of
holiday marketing," McAllister said.
"Their popularity has encouraged a
lot of partnerships among retailers,
with the result that you can now find
a great variety of holiday gift cards at
grocery stores and drug stores."
Other economic indicators in Flor-
ida reinforce the positive consumer
forecast. According to University of
Florida economists, consumer confi-
dence among Floridians jumped sev-
en points in October to 90, the high-
est level since March. According to
the Florida Agency for Workforce
Innovation labor market statistics for
October 2006, job growth remained
strong, and Florida's unemployment
rate continued to be well below the
national average. Florida's October
2006 unemployment rate was 3.1
percent, 1.3 percentage points lower
than the national rate of 4.4 percent.
The Florida Retail Federation
survey was conducted by the Retail
Forward ShopperScape program be-
tween October 20, 2006 and October
25, 2006. The Retail Forward Shop-
perScaper program, which surveys
a nationally representative sample of
4,000 shoppers monthly, was aug-
mented with an additional sample of

FWC Will Discuss
Public Comments About
Gators
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) will
discuss results of a recent online sur-
vey concerning public attitudes about
alligator management when the FWC
meets at Key Largo Dec. 6-7.
Although no rule changes are on
the table, the survey revealed that
some Floridians would like to see
more flexibility in alligator hunting
and nuisance alligator removal. Cur-
rently, alligator hunting opportunities
are limited, and nuisance alligator
removal requires a state-permitted
trapper.
Florida classifies alligators as a
species of special concern, but some
survey responses called for remov-
ing them from the state's imperiled
species list and reclassifying them as
game animals since the species is in
no danger of extinction. Scientists es-
timate Florida's wild alligator popu-
lation comprises more than 1 million
animals.
Commissioners also will consider
comments from survey respondents
who said alligators should have
greater protection or the same level
of protection and management cur-
rently in place in Florida.
If Commissioners direct staff to
move forward with any of the public
comments, the process will require
numerous public hearings and scien-
tific scrutiny to determine what the
new regulations, if any, should be.
The process could span a minimum
of two years and possibly five or
more.

The End Of The Rope
When you've lost every vestige of
hope, and you think you are beaten
and done; When you've come to the
end of your rope, tie a knot in the end
and hang on.
Have courage, for here is the dope;
When you stand with your back to
the wall, and you've come to the end
of your rope, tie a knot in the end and
hang on.
You're not licked; do not sorrow
and mope when your friends seem to
all disappear; Though you've come
to the end of your rope, tie a knot in
the end-and hang on!

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
watching groups and farm tours have
all been employed by area farmers
as a means to provide supplemental
income to family farms. This series
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-
gional Specialized Agent based at the
NFREC-SV. "The workshop will
include an overview of agritourism,
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

Producers Reminded To
Vote For Farm Service
Agency County
Committee Elections
Farmers and ranchers still have a
chance to make a difference in how
Farm Service Agency (FSA) Pro-
grams are administered, announced
Kevin L. Kelley, FSA State Execu-
tive Director. The deadline for eli-
gible voters to return FSA County
Committee election ballots to their
local FSA offices is Dec. 4, 2006.
"The FSA county committee sys-
tem allows agricultural producers and
farmers to make important decisions
concerning the local administration
of federal farm programs," said Kel-
ley. "I urge all eligible farmers and
ranchers, especially minorities and
women, to get involved and vote in
this year's elections."
The United States Department of
Agriculture's FSA County Commit-
tee elections began November 3rd.
Agricultural producers in each coun-
ty submitted candidate names during
the nomination period held last sum-
mer.
Eligible voters who have not re-
ceived ballots in the mail can obtain
ballots at their local USDA Service
Center. The last day for voters to sub-
mit ballots in person to local USDA
Service Centers is Dec. 4, 2006. Bal-
lots returned by mail must be post-


marked no later than Dec. 4. Newly
elected committee members and al-
ternates take office Jan. 1,2007.
Committee members apply their
knowledge and judgment to make
decisions on disaster and conser-
vation payments, establishment of
allotments and yields, producer ap-
peals, employing FSA county execu-
tive directors and other local issues.
FSA committees operate within offi-
cial regulations designed to carry out
federal laws.
