!Gilchrist Commission To Adopt

SResolution To Support Ten

I Commandments Monument On Dixie

County Courthouse Steps


The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion directed their attorney to draft
a resolution in support of the Dixie
County Commission having a monu-
ment of The Ten Commandments
put on the steps of their courthouse.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to request attorney
John McPherson to draft a resolu-
ion in support of the action the Di-
xie County Board of Commissioner
took in establishing a monument of
The 10 Commandments on the steps


of the Dixie County Courthouse in
Cross City. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas gave a second to the motion
before a lengthy discussion was held.
"The Supreme Court of the United
States has made a ruling that identi-
fies the erecting of a monument by a
local government is unconstitution-
al," John McPherson explained to the
five member board. He recommend-
ed to the board to not take this action.
"I think it is important for this
boardto support a neighboring rural
county commission in their action


regarding the 10 Commandments,"
Commission Chairman Randy Dur-
den explained. "The board respects
the attorney's opinion in this mat-
ter, but makes the decision to take a
stand on this issue," Durden added.
."We have as much right to sup-
port this as the people and national
press has to take a stand against
the 10 Commandments,". Com-
missioner Harrison explained.
The board voted 5-0 in support of
the motion.

The joy of Christmas was depicted
throughout Bell last Saturday, De-
cember 2. From the smiling faces of
small children to.the beautiful floats,
the joy of Christmas was crackling
through the air for all to enjoy. This
year's parade was one of the biggest
ever held in Bell. Parade spectators
lined both sides of Highway 129
throughout town.
Before making their way to watch
the' pJrak- marn-. visitors "enjoyed-
spending time looking though the
Ioel items that were for sale by
various venders who were set up near


the depot. Many talented Gilchrist
County residents were displaying
their atts and crafts while enjoying
visiting with friends. While several
clubs and civic groups were man-
ning food booths, there was live en-
tertainment provided by several local
groups throughout the morning.
Lovely floats, golf carts, four wheel-
ers, and antique cars were just some
of the many units which made up the
large parade. Ms. Iris Robl.its of Bell
was the Grand Marshal for the 2006
Bell Christmas Parade. She was fol-
lowed by Santa and Mrs. Claus who


were waiving to children from the
front seat of a antique wagon which
was painted John Deere green. The
All County Band which is made up
of members of the Bell and Trenton
bands played lively Christmas music.
Ft. White and Bronson Bands also
were at the parade to add their talents
to the parade. Scattered throughout
the parade line up were the beautiful
young contestants who were entered
in the MNh-, Chris.tmai pageant

John's

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
On Monday evening as I sat and
listened to the Trenton City Com-
-mission, I continually heard a voice
that came from the far right of the
councilmen's table asking the board
why were things done this way and
why were they continuing to waste
-their time in this manner. Council-
man W. 0. "Bill" Clifton pointed out
to the board you can't change it now
so why waste your time with this.
"I think the wise old public servant
was trying to explain to -the board
that they need to be more precise in
'how they handle. specific issues."
Another age-old issue that the
Trenton Commission just seems to
be allowing to remain in an unre-
solved state is the site plan for Tri-
County Metals'. This site, plan in-
.volves the commission's long-term
action and the fact that Tri-County
Metals' owner came to the City of
Trenton for a building permit after
.the construction of a pole barn type
structure was constructed on the
property for a warehouse-office. Ray
E. Thomas, Jr. P.A. represented the
business in the meeting again Mon-
day night trying to'get the site plan
issue resolved. Clifton asked the
board why were they reviewing this
:site plan for the fourth straight time.
:Clifton at 87 years old told the board
'that if the business corrected the is-'
.sues that were previously identi-


fled, then the board should approve
the plan that was being proposed.
I don't always agree with the
senior member of the City Coun-
cil, but I have found there is usu-
ally a message to learn in his
point that he is quick to make.
In the December 4, 2006 meeting,
Councilman Clifton told the board
and audience that he had enjoyed
serving the City of Trenton, but he
was looking forward to retirement and
moving to a location in Gainesville.
Councilman Clifton is an individ-
ual that has left his mark on Trenton.
He explained that Trenton has been
good to him and his family. He ex-
plained Monday night that when he
came to Trenton he had nothing short
of very little money and a bicycle. He
was an attorney that represented the
Gilchrist County School District for
many years and also was the legal
counsel for the City of Trenton as well
as the Mayor and City Councilman
several times. He explained in those
days when you did legal work for a
client, you often didn't know if you
would receive money for your service
or pork chops for the family table.
Mr. Clifton leaves the City of
Trenton, First Baptist Church of
Trenton, Trenton Rotary Club and
many 'other organizations that he has
been actively involved in better than
they were before he became a mem-
ber. The Bill Cliftons and leaders of
his era will long be missed in this
small and ever changing community.

f


Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
When you read this, Thanksgiving
'dinner will be but a pleasant memory
and the world will have officially
kicked-off the holiday shopping.
season. It is also when holiday",
shopping on Wall Street can lead to
volatile stock prices. ,
Nonetheless, the greatest
investment success will come to
those with the foresight and patience
to see Wall Street through its ups and
downs. Furthermore, when there is a
downturn in the financial markets, the
most successful investors have the
discipline to dollar-cost average their
portfolios. Think of it as shopping a
holiday sale on Wall Street.
For those needing a little help
with some long-term investment
ideas, each year at this time I try to
come up with several candidates
whose performance I then revisit in
a column at about the same time the
following year.
Last week we covered the first six
companies from last'year, which were
Valero, Starbucks, Exxon Mobil,
Oxford Industries; Tractor Supply
and Staples. As a matter of review,
the one-year performance for those
six was 9.83 percent average return
without dividends and 10.55 percent
with dividends.
The second six from last year were
Bank of America (46,54,17), Harley-
Davidson (54,74,37), Intel (27,21,-
22), Best Buy (48,55,15), Bed Bath
and Beyond (42,39,-7) and Oshkosh
Truck (44,48,9).
The numbers in parenthesis show
the price a year ago, the price as of
last week and the percentage gain or
loss respectively. The average return
for those six companies over a period
of one year, not taking into account
dividends, was 8.17 percent. If you
add in dividends, the return goes to
9.63 percent.
If you combine all 12 stocks, you
have an overall average return of
9.73 percent 'I bhouti dividends ando,
10.09 percent with dividends. As
was pointed out last week, during
the same period the S&P 500 turned
in a gain of 12 percent, while the
Vanguard index fund (VFINX) had a
price gain of 11 percent.
Although the overall return with
dividends fell short of our 11 percent
goal, it is worth pointing out that Intel
took a beating of 22 percent and yet
we still managed to achieve a return
that is less than one percent below
our 11 percent goal.
The selected 12 stocks are not an
attempt at developing a managed
portfolio. Rather, the purpose of
the exercise is to demonstrate
how virtually anyone can pick a
diversified group of high quality blue
chip companies from a universe of
stocks whose products you know and
love that will result in an acceptable
return, despite market volatility
throughout the year.
Meanwhile, if you are still
questioning as to whether you should
invest in equities going forward into
next year, the answer, in my opinion,
would be an unequivocal, yes.
So where do we go from here?


Sins Of The Tongue
(Kent Heaton)


The wisdom of man exemplifies itself in how he has
harnessed the elements to his benefit. Man uses fire to
warm himself, cook food and forge metals to his design.
Water produces untold kilowatts of electricity and turns
barren land to bountiful lands of plenty. The wind drives
engines of progress sailing large ships through the oceans.
From a study of the tiny atom, nuclear energy has
managed to bring wealth and prosperity to millions.
History has shown the destructive nature of these elements
when unleashed without control or when used to destroy
humanity. Fires ravage through communities uncontrolled
destroying everything in its path. Floods kill and maim
thousands, hurricanes and tornadoes leave paths of
complete devastation and the tiny atom -is used to obliterate
nations.
In all of these things, there yet remains a force more,
powerful and more destructive than any element of nature.
It is very small compared to the wonder of man's
achievements; yet through the agency of this small,
overlooked and misunderstood member, lives have been
destroyed, nations ruined and the church of our Lord left
desolate. "So also the tongue is a small part of the body,
and yet it boasts of great things. See how great a forest is
set aflame by such a small fire! And the tongue is afire,
the very world of iniquity; the tongue is set among our
members as that which defiles the entire body, and sets on
fire the course of our life, and is set on fire by hell. For
every species of beasts and birds, of reptiles and creatures
of the sea, is tamed and has been tamed by the human
race. But no one can tame the tongue; it is a restless evil
and full of deadly poison" (James 3:5-8).


The Bible has much to say about the tongue. "Death and
life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it
will eat its fruit ... He who guards his mouth and his
tongue, guards his soul from troubles" (Proverbs 18:21;
21:23). The tongue cannot be tamed by man and must be
guarded daily with the Lord's help. The greatest danger of
the tongue,;s found in understanding the sins of the tongue.
It is easy to equate sin as some big thing and deny that
small things are sinful. The scriptures give us insight into
what Jehovah says is sinful and so many of these sins are
found in the tongue.
The "works of the flesh" are given by Paul in Galatians
5:19-21. Notice how many of ,these are connected to the sin
of the tongue: "immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry,
sorcery, enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger,
disputes, dissensions, factions, envying, drunkenness,
carousing." Romans 1:29-31 shows the depravity of sin
and the sins of the tongue as "being filled with all
unrighteousness, wickedness, greed, evil; full of envy,
murder, strife, deceit, malice; they are gossips, slanderers,
haters of God, insolent, arrogant, boastful, inventors of
evil, disobedient to parents, without understanding,
untrustworthy, unloving, unmerciful."
If we could ever control the tongue, we would be able to
control many of the sins that plague our lives. Often people
are searching for ways to be more like Christ and
overcoming the works of flesh that are seeded in
wickedness; not realizing that the tongue is the agent of so
many miseries we bring upon ourselves! The tongue must
be controlled to be more like Christ. Loose lips not only
sink ships but they destroy lives.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor:
I have noticed that many of our
area businesses promote the work of
the "March of Dimes," and encour-
age other residents to do so. While
this might, at first glance, look like a
worthy cause to support, I would like
to bring the following information
to light and let the people decide for
themselves.
1. The March of Dimes is a pro-
eugenics organization. That means
that it takes as its basic principle
the idea that "certain people should
never be bom," that is, those who are
"abnormal" or "inferior."
2. Because of this belief, the MOD
has popularized the idea of testing all
unborn babies for genetic deficien-
cies. The end result of all this test-
ing is that more babies are aborted
for suspected problems (Down Syn-
drome, Muscular Dystrophy, Cystic
Fibrosis, and many others). These
te 'are by no means perfect, there-
fore.ryt e are not only aborting the pre-
cious children afflicted with these
problems, but surely many more who
really have no defect at aall.
3. MOD top advisors even argue
in favor of third trimester abor-
tions for deformed infants. If you've
seen the gruesome pictures of partial
birth abortions, you know what we're
talking about here.
4. MOD supports and funds stud-
ies involving human embryos (ob-
tained by abortion) and live fetal
experimentation on women who are
about to abort.
5. MOD ignores the truth about pre-
mature and low birth weight babies.
At least 48 published studies have
shown that when a woman aborts a
baby, her risk for having a premature
or low birth weight baby in future
pregnancies increases dramatically.
For many years, pro-life organiza-
tions have been trying to get MOD to
acknowledge this fact, but the orga-
nization has refused and continues to
claim that the rise in low birth weight
babies is a "mystery" (and of course,
that they need more of your money to
solve the mystery!)
There are many, many charities out
there that are worthy of the support
of Gilchrist county citizens. It is my
firm belief that the March of Dimes
is not one of them. (All of the above
information can be found in a report
compiled by the Michael Fund at
www.michaelfund.org).
Sincerely,
Suzanne Riordan

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Seems to me about this time each
year my sweet tooth kicks in. There
is just something real special about
all that wonderful homemade Christ-
mas candy.
J. and Lyndsay just celebrated their
first wedding anniversary last week-
end. It sure is hard to believe it's al-
ready been a year. When I think back
on their wedding one of my fondest
memories was the wonderful home-
made candy that was featured on a
table in the center of the reception
room. During the reception friends
were steadily asking us who made the
'great candy. Although many batches
of candy were made the guests soon
ate all the candy.
Lyndsay called on her grandmother,
Maxine Parrish to. make the candy
for her wedding reception and it was
wonderful. Mrs. Maxine made many
tins of fudge, Martha Washington's
coconut balls, both pink and white
divinity, and pecan brittle. You know
I can't think of any Christmas tradi-
tion we have that says "A Southern
Christmas" more than that wonderful
from scratch homemade candy like
our mothers or grandmothers made.
One of my earliest Christmas mem-
ories is-of my mother sitting in our
kitchen on the farm holding a huge
dishpan in her lap as she rolled out
coconut balls. Man those things were
so good. She, would have to get af-
ter my brothers and I because we
were slipping them away about as
fast as she was making them. Most
years momma would have a couple
of her friends working along side of
her making candy. I can still remem-
ber the happy chatter coming from
the kitchen as they all worked away
making that oh so special homemade
Christmas candy.
I also remember my mother greasing
her counter tops well before pouring
. ,bubbling hot peanut brittle on to it.
She would use a couple of forks and
her greased fingers to pull the candy
so thin there were strings of sugar at-
tached to some pieces. Man that was
some good brittle.


The Christmas season is truly a
wonderful time of year. Christmas
is about so much more than shop-
ping and presents. It's a season to
spend time with family and friends
and make lasting memories. A time
to remember the real reason for the
holiday.... the birth of baby Jesus.

American Legion Airs
Today, December 7, 2006, is the sixty-fifth anniversary of the attack on Pearl
Harbor, bringing the US into World War II. If your flag is flying already, it should be
at half-staff until sunset, then returned to the top of the flag pole. From that date, until
the present, there are over 88,000 persons Missing In Action in our Nation's wars and
conflicts. That is nearly enough to fill Ben Hill Griffen Stadium -at Florida Field in
Gainesville. That number, 88,000, represents that many families that have a member
missing,, status and whereabouts'unknown. It represents children growing up without
fathers in many cases. This is but one reason to continue to ask the Pentagon and our
Government, to find those MIAs and bring them home. Continue to remember these
persons, fly the POW/MIA flag, and demand that Congress force this issue to grant
closure.
With Christmas just weeks away, remember the US Marine Corps "Toys for Tots"
campaign and while you are shopping, pick up a toy to donate. Marines in this area
are not shy, you can find one to, drop the toy off with, and they will see that it gets to
the right place. Support the "Toys for Tots", it is a worthwhile effort, and it brings
some happiness to the children.
Area food pantries can also use canned and dried food items for their baskets as
well. If you don't know of a food pantry in need of items, contact the your local
Sheriff's Office. Someone there will be able to assist you.
If you have access to a computer, there are many web sites where you can send
messages to our troops overseas. In many cases, you can no longer send letters and
cards to "Any Soldier", but several groups have made arrangements with the military
to send messages of encouragement and appreciation to the troops. XEROX has a web
site, www.letssaythanks.com where you can pick a card, drawn by youngsters from
around the US, pick one of several responses, or write your own, and it will be sent to
a soldier currently serving in Iraq. You cannot pick who it goes to, but it will go to a
member of the Armed Forces. This web site began well before Thanksgiving and
continues even now.
The United Service Organization ( USO ) is chartered by the US Congress as a
non-profit charitable organization whose mission is to provide morale, welfare and
recreation-type services to uniformed military personnel around the world. For $
25.00 you can sponsor a USO Care Package with a personal message of
encouragement and "let our heroes know they haven't been forgotten". If you have a
computer, log on to: www.OperationUSOCarePackage.org for more information.
There are many more places you can go to send gifts and encouragement to our
troops overseas. The National Guard and the various Reserve Units have Family
Support organizations, so just call around to them for more information there. The
overall idea is to try to make someone's Christmas better.
Saturday, December 9, 2006 is the Festival of Lights in Fanning Springs. Post 91
will have a booth there and could always use some help in staffing the booth. Contact
any of the Post Officers to volunteer to help out. Get out and ,meet the folks in this
area and find the veterans. ASK them if they are interested in the American Legion
and tell them about the programs and how those programs benefit the veterans and the
youth, as well as the community. Explain the benefits of membership in the American
Legion, the Auxiliary and the SAL, the whole Legion Family, and how this Family
works for the community we live in.
Remember our Armed Forces all around this world, every day in your thoughts
and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans and their
widows, helping out however and whenever we can. Be ready to help those families
of service members called to active duty as well.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

Remember Our Troops
For those who believe, prayer is a
powerful weapon. It not only does
something for the pray-er, but also it
can increase the faith of those who
are being prayed for, especially those
who are in harm's way and protecting
our freedoms which we sometimes
take for' granted here in the United
States of America.
We all should be consistent in our
prayers for those of our county who
are serving in the Armed Forces. The
following is a known list of those
who. are on active duty, and who ei-
ther have a residence here or who are
relatives of someone who lives' here
in Gilchrist County. (If you know

Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Volunteers
News
Sadly, the Sheriff's Volunteers re-
cently suffered the loss of two very
long term members, Bob Belanger and
Helen "Pat" Crosby. Pat was instru-
mental in coordinating the Thanks-
giving food drive since its inception,
as well as coordinating the CARE
Program and Neighborhood Watch
Program. Bob spent many hours pa-
trolling neighborhoods and assisting
with training programs. Both volun-
teers contributed thousands of hours
to the organization over the years and
are missed by those who had the plea-
sure of serving with them.
During the months of September
and October 2006, Crime Watch ve-
hicles were driven 4823 hours while
providing traffic duty in school zones,
football games, parades, and Hallow-
een activities.
Five Volunteers are currently en-
gaged in training with the CERT
(Community Emergency Response
Team) Program. Anyone interested
in the next class should contact Ron
Mills- with the 3ilchrist County De-
partment of Emergency Management
for an application and more informa-
tion.
The CARE Program continues to
provide its service to the community,
but with the loss of Pat Crosby, at the
present time there is only one person
making phone calls to those who have
requested dai1h checks. Please.con-
tact the Sheriff's Office if you are in-
terested in volunteering for this very
important program.
The next meeting of the Sheriff's
Volunteers will be held at 6 p.m. on
December 5th in the Sheriff's Office
conference room. All Gilchrist Coun-
ty residents are invited to attend.

The combined Purple Powerhouse

sounded like the FSU fight music.
Last, but certainly not least, was the
mighty Bronson Eagles Marching
Band. Thank you to all these bands
for making this parade so special.
The Town of Bell and the Bell
Band Program hosted a hospitality
tent for the visiting Bands at the end

Trenton Walks For
Healthier Babies In
WalkMania
Trenton Elementary students used
their feet to give babies a hand by
participating in their annual March of
Dimes WalkMania on November 3rd.
WalkMania is a mini-walk modeled'
after WalkAmerica, where students
get the opportunity to show that they
can make a difference.
From pre-school to fifth grade,
students asked family and friends to
sponsor their walk by making do-
nations to the March of Dimes. On
WalkMania Day, more than seven
hundred children celebrated their
fundraising by taking a short walk
around the school. They learned the
value of their contributions and how
important it is to fight prematurity.
WalkMania had a special mean-
ing to Trenton students. Premature
birth and low birth weight affected
several of their own. Andrew Dees
at Trenton Elementary is just one of
the students with physical challenges
that resulted from low birth weight.
Trenton students walked in honor of
these students.
Trenton Elementary students raised
a grand total of $1,164 for the March
of Dimes. Prizes were given to the
students who raised the most. Sev-
en raised more than $25, receiving
March of Dimes awareness bracelets,
and 17 students raised more than $50,
receiving March of Dimes T-shirts.
Five .students raised $100 or more:
Tyler Toal, first grade, Ms. Broker;
Daniel Plank, first grade, Ms. Lacey;
Sydnee Jackson, second grade, Ms.
Aylor; and Madyson Feather, third
grade, Ms. Feather each raised over
$100. Shelby Lohse, in Ms. Harris's
kindergarten class, was the top Tren-
ton Elementary fundraiser with a
donation of $121. She received a
$25 gift certificate to Wal-Mart. Ms
Harris's first grade class received a
pizza party sponsored by Pizza Hut
for being the top fundraising class.
Each student received a WalkMania
certificate.
Funds raised from WalkMania will
support programs and research in the
North Central Florida area that will
help save babies from premature
birth. For more information on how
to schedule a WalkMania, parents,
teachers or other youth organiza-
tion leaders should call the March of
Dimes North Central Florida Divi-
sion at (352) 378-9522.
The March of Dimes is a volun-
tary health agency whose mission
is to improve the health of babies
by pre% ending birth defects,' preima-
turity and infant mortality. Founded
in 1938, the March of Dimes funds
programs of research, community
services, education and advocacy to
save babies. For more information,
visit the March of Dimes Web site at
marchofdimes.com, its Spanish Web
site at www.nacersano.org.

Perfection On
Wheels BMX Stunt
Team Comes To Bell
Elementary School
On November 1, 2006, students
that sold a specified amount of goods
for the PTA were treated to a special
BMX Bike Show at the bus loop.
Music, bikes and ramps were part
of the fun-filled time enjoyed by
those students and parents that sold
items to raise money for the PTA.
This event was sponsored jointly
by the fund-raising company and
PTA and was more than jumps, spins
and fancy bike maneuvering stunts.
The young men who rode these bikes
discussed all the hard work that had
to be learned to do these tricks, along
with character education training.
The students were treated to dare-
devil stunts that concluded with Mr.
Reed sitting down in a chair on a
ramp and a bike jumping over his
head. We hope to have more students
qualify next year.
The top seller was Shawn Holley.
He is in 1st grade in Mrs. Owens
class. Shawn won a metallic green
BMX bike.

Library News
The series of Pre-school Programs
ended last week with the children
completing and wearing their 4-week
craft-a-cowboy outfit made of brown
paper bags. The children did a great
job of decorating their vests, spats,
armbands, bolos, and badges. The
cowboy hats were provided by the Li-
brary. The next Pre-school Program
will begin January 4th at 10:30 a.m.
for children 2-5 years old. For more
information call (352) 463-3176.
I want to thank the parents, whose
children participated in the last pro-
gram, for the support that was given
to make this program enjoyable for
the little ones. Spencer Hewitt and
Josh Akin were especially helpful
in preparing the crafts and assisting
with the programs.
The library has had many new pa-
trons signing for Library cards and
the library staff would like to say
"Welcome" and also to say "thank
you" to our regular patrons for their
ded.catied Lipport o l'the library.

A Wild Place That
Inspires Me
bv Al B tI1tl-v


uy ICA ex entey
My Grandparents own and live on
65 acres of nature, in Plano, Illinois.
Their property has hills, sloughs,
meadows, trees, one creek and a
pond. All of these are home to many
creatures great and small. One of my
favorite things to do is to go to the
r creek to wade and swim with my
parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles,
cousins, siblings and our dogs. I like
to hunt for reptiles and amphibians,
like the spiny soft-shelled turtle. I ex-
plore various habitats along the creek
S that shelter many creatures; there is
the steep creek bank with roots and
logs hanging off. That is home to
Black snakes, Northern Water snakes
t and Grahams Crayfish snakes. On the
grassy creek bank, I find box turtles,
garter snakes, lizards and other small
animals. The rocky part of the bank
is the habitat of salamanders, basking
snakes and frogs. Crayfish and small
schools of minnows inhabit the rocky
,. bottom of the creek.
The thing that really inspires me
about my Grandparent's property
is that they have registered it as a
'. Nature Preserve to save all the na-
tive plants, trees and wildlife. From
roaming the woods, and creek, I am
inspired to do what I can to preserve
wildlife. I donate 10% of the money
I earn from lemonade stands and pet
sitting to organizations that preserve
nature and wildlife. I read a lot about
amphibians and reptiles and want to
use my knowledge to preserve wild-
life and wild places.
Alex Bentley, age 11

Tips To Prevent Yoga
Injuries
An increasing number of Ameri-
cans are turning to yoga for exercise
and relaxation, as well as non-surgi-
cal, non-medicinal relief of bone,
joint and muscle-related pain. While


some people consider yoga a secret
"fountain of youth," the seemingly
harmless activity can cause muscle
strain, torn ligaments or more serious
injuries if practiced incorrectly.
The American Academy of Ortho-
paedic Surgeons (AAOS) believes
the rewards of basic yoga outweigh
the potential physical risks, as long
as you take caution and perform the
exercises in moderation, according to
your individual flexibility level.
According to the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission, there
were more than 3,700 yoga-related
injuries treated in doctors' offices,
clinics and emergency rooms in 2004,
incurring a total cost of approximate-
ly $94 million. Common yoga inju-
ries include repetitive strain to and
overstretching of the neck, shoulders,
spine, legs and knees.
Yoga can help improve strength,
balance and flexibility and may be
beneficial for certain bone and joint
problems like carpal tunnel syn-
drome, tennis elbow and arthritis.
However, the old adage of 'no pain,


For Full-Size Trucks and Cargo Vans (greater than 6,000 Ibs. GVWR):
Deduct a maximum of $108,000, depending on the number of vehicles
purchased in the first year. In other words, if you only buy one, you are


allowed to deduct the entire purchase price, including any amount
financed. Qualifying vehicles include all F-150 Regular Cab, SuperCab
& CrewCab models with a greater than 6 ft. bed, all F-250 through F-750
Super Duty, and E-Seriec Cargo Vans.

no gain' does not apply to this activ-
ity. Whether yoga enthusiasts are just
stretching or assuming specific posi-
tions, serious muscle damage and re-
lated injuries can result if they don't
take the proper precautions, especial-
ly for people with pre-existing mus-
culoskeletal ailments or conditions.
To help minimize yoga-related in-
juries, the AAOS recommends the
following: If you have any medical
conditions or injuries, speak to your
doctor before participating in yoga.
Work with a qualified yoga instruc-
tor. Ask about his or her experience
and credentials. Warm up thor-
oughly before a yoga session--cold
muscles, tendons and ligaments are
vulnerable to injury. Wear appropri-
ate clothing that allows for proper
movement. Beginners should start
slowly and learn the basics first--
such as breathing--rather than trying
to stretch too far. If you are unsure
of a pose or movement, ask ques-
tions. Know your limits. Do not try
positions beyond your experience or
comfort level. Learn what type of


yoga you are performing. There are
hundreds of different forms of yoga,
some more strenuous than others. It
is important to learn which type of
yoga will best suit your needs. Keep
hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids,
especially if participating in Bikram
or "hot" yoga. Listen to your body. If
you are experiencing pain or exhaus-
tion while participating in yoga, stop
or take a break. If pain persists, speak
with a physician.

browsing through the many beautiful

many food booths, you'll be tempted
to try all of them. The tantalizing aro-
ma from these foods really get your
mouth watering and your stomach
will be telling you that it is time to
pick up something to try. You'll for-
get about the diet and just enjoy.
Kids, make sure Mom and Dad
get you there to try your' skill at ka-
raoke singing. This will be a new
L event on the entertainment stage this
;, year. There will also be the bounc-
|i ing moonwalk to have fun in. Then
you can try your luck at climbing
ile the Rock Wall or seeing if you can
ride the bucking bronco. Of course,
Santa will be there for you to visit so
make sure you have your list, check it
twice, and then you can tell him what
you are wishing for under that Christ-
mas Tree!
There are many great prizes to
win, all donated by our local mer-
chants, so make sure you stop by the
Chamber booth and get your tickets,
There will be a drawing every hour
for these piizes and winners will be
announced on the stage. If you are
present Nyou can stop by and pick up
the certificate for your prize, if \on
are not present, you will be notified
the following day.

little yellow rubber. ducks around
lately? They have been 'gening
wanted tip and read) so at 3:30 that
afternoon the% will all be ready.to go
for a swim in the Suwannee River;
Each one will be racing the other hop-
i ing that they will be the first of three
winners. Some nice prize money
waits for the winners, so make sure
i. you check with the Suwannee River
Cruisers Boat Club booth to pick out
your ducks. You just may be one of,
-those lucky winners!! If you have
never watched these little yellow rub-
ber ducks racing down the river, then
are you don't want to miss this exciting
moment. You just know which one
er will win, but the current will .sudden-
ly take them in another direction and
another will take to the front of the
line. The excitement really builds as
they near the finish line, so be sure to
come and enjoy.
The Boat Parade will get under-
way at 6:30 in the evening. Be sure
to bring a flashlight to help light your
wyay as it will be dark. You canialso
use it to flash at the boats as the)
pass by so they will know you are
watching from along the banks of the
river. With their bright lights decorat-
ing their boats, they cannot see very
far away, but they can sure see your
lights flashing to let them know you
are there! Your support and cheers re-
ally makes them proud to be a part of
the celebration, as it is a lot of hard
work to decorate each of the boats.
Each year these people come up with
new ideas and it seems as though
they get better every time, if that is
possible.
There will be a $5.00 per vehicle
gate fee, up to 8 people per car, at the
Fanning Springs State Park this year.
Handicap parking only will be avail-
able at the Wayside Park in the eve-

Senator Wise Visits
Gilchrist School District
(Continued from Page One)
and business owners.
The Practical Careers Academy
(P.C.A.) is not "the curve;" it's not
where the discipline-prone students
are sent. This is an academy for non-
traditional students; they have more
hands-on learning and real world
learning experiences, and smaller
class sizes. For some this is a short
term alternative, but it still offers the
academic skills needed along with
the basic skills needed to get a job in
the real world.
Senator Wise and area visitors
received an overview of the P.C.A.
from Lead Teacher Steve Brown &
Principal Rhonda Parrish; they then
had the chance to visit the P.C.A.
classes in session. While at Bell
High School the guests also visited
the Health Academy and heard from
David Gray, Lead Teacher. Then the
group took a short road trip to Trenton
High and visited the Engineering/
Construction Academy run by Don
Barselou and received an overview


of their Academy as well.
The visitors to our Gilchrist County
Schools all came for the simple
purpose of seeing how our academies
are run and learning first hand from
students how they are serving them.
In today's world there is much
more emphasis on having the skills
necessary to get a job right out of high'
school. It's great to see that Gilchrist
County is not only providing these
skillsbut also setting the standard for
others in our state.

any veteran and his family who re-
sides in Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
counties.
We were honored to serve 120
people this year. We thank each vet-
eran for the service they gave to our
Country.
Without the support of many area
businesses this event would not be
possible. A sincere thank you to all.
Thank you Veterans and our Local
Business Supporters.
Fred Hienrich, Commander

1 medium size bag of flaked coconut
1 box powdered sugar
2 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 can condensed milk
Mix together all the ingredients in
large dish pan. Using hands roll into
balls a little smaller than one inch
round. Keep hands dry while roll-
ing by dusting with extra powdered
sugar.
Chocolate Coating
1 large bag of chocolate chips
1/4 bar of paraffin wax
Melt chocolate chips and paraffin
wax in double boiler. When melted
dip balls in chocolate. Place on foil
to harden.
Hint: when dipping balls in choc-
olate you can make a good dipping
tool by breaking out center two tines
of a plastic fork. By having less tines
the excess chocolate drains off the
coconut balls better.

ber 25 when citizens of the town
and surrounding area came out to
enjoy the Town Christmas Lighting.
Those who attended enjoyed seeing
the decorations and the official turn-
ing on of the lights. Live music was
provided by First Baptist Church of
Bell Youth Choir, Mr. Hardy Meyers,
Mrs. Tammy Jones and Mr. Brandon
Ridgeway.
The Town of Bell celebrated
Christmas this year in a big way due
to the help of several very hard work-
ing volunteers. Mary Jordan was the
chairperson of the parade this year.
The committee consisted of Dan Ca-
vanah, Patsy Avery, Tommy Brown,
Libby Estes, Iris Roberts, and Ray
Sanders. Connie Jordan helped out
with the parade lineup and with the
competition.
All and all the hard work paid off
because this year as in the past the
Bell Christmas parade was a fun
filled event enjoyed by all.
