Susan Bryant Says Goodbye After

26 Years In Supervisor Of

Elections Office


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The residents of Gilchrist County
have seen many elected officials
come and go through the years but
few will be missed more than our
Supervisor of Elections Susan J. Bry-
ant. Mrs. Bryant has faithfully filled
her position as Supervisor of Elec-
tions for the past 26 years. Many feel
that she has brought a great amount
of class to our courthouse and her
elected office. Her friendly smile and
courteous manner will be-missed by
the citizens of Gilchrist County and
those who work with her throughout
the courthouse.
Mrs. Bryant started her career in
government in 1976 when she be-
gan working for Mr. Horace Thomas
longtime Clerk of the Court in Gil-
christ County. She worked for Mr.
Thomas until she was elected to the
Supervisor of Elections position and
took office at the beginning of 1981.
Mrs. Bryant said the 1980 election.
was very interesting in itself because
it took until 5:00 a.m. in the morning
before all the precinct results came
in and it was about 5 p.m. the next
afternoon before the absentee ballots
were counted.
Back in the early 1980s the elec-
tions office was located across the
street from the courthouse in the Ag-
riculture Building. In 1982 the coun-
ty purchased the Datavote System
which served Giichrist County vot-
ers well for 18 years. The Supervisor
of Elections office moved into their
current office in the Gilchrist County
Courthouse in 1983. Back when Mrs.
Bryant took office, voter registration
was done only by the election office
staff and the voters raised their right
hand and took an oath. Today you can
register to vote most anywhere and
anytime from the mail to a computer.
She went on to say that she liked it
much better when she actually got to
meet the voters face to face and give
them their oath. She enjoyed dem-
onstrating the voting system and an-
swering any of their questions. Mrs.
Bryant said, "It was personal and you
got to know the voters back then."
Many changes were in store for the
Supervisor of Elections Office in the
next 26 years, more than even Mrs.
Bryant could imagine. In 1981 Gil-
christ County had 3618 registered
voters. There were 3,560 registered
Democrats, only 47 Republicans reg-
istered, and 11 people were regis-
tered under other parties at that time.
Today things are a little different,
now there are 9,591 registered vot-
ers, 5,299 are Democrats and 3,190
are Republicans and 1,146 are regis-
tered under other parties. During her
career Mrs. Bryant has overseen 46
elections which include all national,
state, county, local elections includ-
ing the town and city elections for
both Bell and Trenton.
During the years as Supervisor of
Elections Mrs. Bryant's office staff
has consisted of several dedicated
employees. At the beginning the
staff consisted of Mrs. Ann Beasley,
Peggy Milito and Naomi Hudson.
Connie Sanchez has been a member
of the staff for the past 9 years. Part-
time and election consultants and
programers are Christopher Ruggles

Bell Town Council Grants Hardship

Variance To Mobile Home Resident


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council took ac-
tion to grant a Hardship Variance
application to a mobile home resi-
dent that was denied a certificate of
occupancy by the Gilchrist County
Building Department because her
mobile home did not meet State
of Florida wind load guidelines.
Bell resident Carol McClellan ap-
peared before the four-member town
council Thursday, December 7. Town
of Bell attorney David M. Lang, Jr.
explained to the council that the appli-
cant could not receive a Certificate of
Occupancy to move into her residence
because the Gilchrist County Build-
ing Department said it was up to the
Bell Council to make that decision.


This quandary occurred when the
mobile home company, First Class
Homes, moved the mobile home onto
the applicant's property at 540 NW
30th Avenue in Bell. The company
setup the mobile home and informed
the owner that the residence was ready
for inspection. The Building Official
inspected the home and determined
that the residence was fine, but the
mobile home was a 1975 model and it
did not meet the State of Florida wind
load specifications. The applicant was
told by the Gilchrist County that she
would have to make an application
for a Hardship Variance in the Town
of Bell and the council would have
to make a decision before she could
receive a certificate of occupancy.


The council discussed this issue
in length. Attorney Lang explained
that he had contacted a State of
Florida building official and they
explained that the wind code speci-
fications that were identified by the
county building official were an
advisory and not actual guidelines.
Councilman Ray Sanders explained
that Ms. McClellan should receive
the variance and be allowed to move
into her residency. He put his point
in the form of a motion. Councilman
Tommy Brown gave a second to the
motion and Council President Mrs.
Iris Roberts called for a vote. The
council approved the application by
a 3-0 vote. The applicant will now be
allowed to move into her residency.

Susasn J. Bryant will retire after 26 years serving the voters of
Gilchrist County as the Supervisor of Elections.


and Teresa Miller. Gary Blankenship
has served as Security Deputy for
over 20 years. Mrs. Milito is retiring
this year after 20 years of service.
Mrs. Connie Sanchez was recently
elected to the office of Supervisor of
Elections and will be taking office on
December 30.
The county has 10 voting precincts
and the Supervisor of Elections and
her staff train around 75 poll work-
ers and election personnel for each
county-wide election.
Some elections are more memora-
ble than most according to Mrs. Bry-
ant. The best voter turnout occurred
in Gilchrist County during the elec-
tions of 1992 and in 2000. The 1992
general election had a turnout of 81%
and in the year 2000 the general elec-
tion turnout was 82.70%.
Mrs. Bryant said, "The general
election of 2000 was the best run
election I ever had. The office was
quiet all day long. This was the 4th
election that year for the voters and
everything ran very smooth. It may
have gone down in history as the di-
saster election for Florida, but I am
still proud that our results, counted
twice, and hand counted several
times remained the same. The disas-
ter was simply a 'close election.' The
State of Florida may not have been
aware that Gilchrist County has had
many recounts with close elections."
She went on to explain the details
of the second primary/run-off elec-
tion with Edwin Douglas and John
Rance Thomas; the vote was 909 for
each candidate and a coin had to be
flipped to determine that John Rance
Thomas would serve as county com-
missioner. She explained elections
were simple and fun until after the
2000 elections; since that time rules,

laws, equipment, manuals, and so on
have continued to change.
The Supervisor of Elections also
recalls the State Elections Office
calling at 4 p.m. on election day to
notify her office that the polls were
to stay open an extra two hours. Mrs.
Bryant said to the state office worker,
"You've got to be kidding me! That
is the same thing all my clerks said
when I called them. My poll workers
have always been dedicated to han-
dling the election process. It takes us
all working together to make things
happen."
Speaking of changes, she said since
she has came into office typewriters
were replaced by the computers, no
more carbon ,paper and erasers, now
we have fax machines, instant over
the line copies to sending and proof-
ing ballots over e-mail.
Mrs. Bryant said, "I can truly say
all of my elections have been good
ones, and I have my Lord and Savior,
my office staff, poll workers and vot-
ers to thank for that!"
You might say that Susan J. Bry-
ant was born to hold public office.
The Jones' family has been public
servants for many years. Her grand-
father Charlie Jones was elected in
the early 60s as a member of the Gil-
christ County School 3oarud, her la-


their Addy Jones served for 24 years
as a Gilchrist County Commissioner.
Mr. Addy retired from that position in
1992.
Mrs. Bryant is a county native who
graduated in 1967 from Trenton High
School. She is the second child for
Addy and Edith Roberson Jones. The
Jones family consisted of five chil-
dren. They were raised on the fam-
ily farm and as youngsters had farm
chores to do. She said her father grew
cukes, squash, bell peppers, water-
melons, eggplants and more. So there
was always something to do planting,
hoeing, picking, and gathering. They
also had to look after horses and
cows. Her mother did all the cook-
ing but with five children there was
always dishes or clothes that needed
washing.
With the exception of a couple of
years spent in South Florida, Susan
Bryant has lived her entire life in
Gilchrist County. She and Paul Bry-
ant married in 1978 and they have
three children, Todd Bryant and his
wife Mae who reside in Trenton, Lori
Bryant and her husband Wayne Chin
who reside in New York City and El-
ton Langford and his wife Stephanie
who reside in Arcadia. The Bryants
have seven grandchildren.
For many years Mrs. Bryant has
been involved with many worth-
while community service clubs. She
has served as president of Trenton
Woman's Club, and President of the
Education Foundation which spon-
sors the Wild Beast Feast and the
Walk-a-Thon each year. She has been
a member of the Trenton Rotary Club
and is a "Paul Harris Fellow." She has
served as president of the Suwannee
River Chapter of American Business
Womens and was their Woman of the
Year in 1986. The Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce honored her
by naming her the Citizen of the
Year in 1998. She also received the
4-H Distinguished Service Award in
1986. She has been a member of the
Florida State Association of Supervi-
sor of Elections serving in various
positions for the past 26 years.
For many years people around
Trenton knew that Mrs. Bryant was
the moving force behind the beautiful
decorations at the county courthouse.
Mrs. Bryant said when speaking of
the decorations, "I must tell you it
could not have been done without the
help of my dear deceased friend Of-
ficer Robbin Lamb, Officer Nicholas
Turner and Officer Jarrod Jones who
oversee the work crew from Lancast-
er Correctional Institution.
Once retired Mrs. Bryant plans to
spend quality time with her family.
She said, "I plan to travel as often
as I can, spend lots of time with my
grandchildren, family, and fishing
with my husband every chance I get,
I would love to learn to relax--some-
thing I don't ever think I have done."
She also went on to say that she and
her husband Paul love to travel thei
back roads of our beautiful country.

Critical Step In Evaluating
Options To Meet Future Energy
Needs
Following a comprehensive evalu-
ation of sites for a potential nuclear
power plant to meet Florida's grow-
ing need for electricity, Progress En-
ergy (NYSE: PGN) has named a site
in southern Levy County as the pre-
ferred location for construction of a
T'.1I ,, t it li decision is made in future
years to move forward.


The Levy County site, approxi-
mately 3,000 acres is located about
seven miles inland from the Gulf of
Mexico and eight miles north of the
company's Crystal River Energy
Complex in Citrus County, where
Progress Energy operates a nuclear
plant, as well as four coal-fueled
units. The Levy County location was
chosen based on an assessment of the
major siting criteria: land, access to
sufficient quantities of water (from


the Gulf) and access to the electric
transmission system, as well as an
overall evaluation of environmental
considerations. The proximity of the
site to the company's existing nuclear
plant also would provide opportuni-
ties for efficiencies in shared support
functions. In the coming months, the
potential site will undergo further de-
tailed assessment.

Letter To The Editor
Gilchrist County Commissioners
Thank you, Thank You, Thank
You
I wanted to publicly say thank you
for the stand each of you took with
adopting a resolution to support The
Dixie County Commission on the is-
sue of The Ten Commandments. It is
nice to know that in a world slowly
slipping away from God there is still
some "back-bone" after all. It's a
shame for a country that was founded
on God and His Commandments to
now have such a problem with Him.
I realize Mr. McPherson recom-
mended that you not take action but
I am thankful, pleased and proud
that you did. It took me to Acts 5:29
"...We ought to obey God rather than
man."
You may feel in the minority and
that everyone may be pointing fin-
gers at you but remember Romans
8:31, "If God be for us, who can be
against us?"
Again, for whatever it's worth,
thank you and I am proud of the stand
you have taken and may this be the
foundation for the future. I Corinthi-
ans 3:11 "For other foundation can
no man lay than that is laid, which is
Jesus Christ."
May God bless you, our counties
and each of us as we do what He
would have us to do.
Paul Watson, Pastor,
Bellt Baptist Church


Letter To The Editor
I would like to praise our county
commission for supporting the Ten
Commandments that are placed at the
Dixie County Courthouse. I am sick
and tired of outside left wing liberals


telling everyone how to think. We
are told not to fly the American flag
because it will offend people from
other countries. We are told hunt-
ing and owning firearms is bad and
we are not responsible to own or pur-
chase a firearm. And last we are told
to say happy holidays and not Merry
Christmas!
What rock did these idiots crawl
out from under! It appears they are
determined on making the United
States into a socialist country.
Concerning the United States Su-
preme Courts decision on the Ten
Commandments, I am curious how
they came to the conclusion that it
is unconstitutional. All money has
(In God We Trust) at the top back
of the bill. This appears to be a case
of selective enforcement concerning
who and where religion is allowed
to be written. This is exactly what
the Founding Fathers of the United
States were fleeing from when they
left Europe.
In closing, God, Guns, and Guts
made this country. Let's keep it that
way!
Reguards,
Robert Monica

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
Two companies discussed here at
this time last year were in the news
recently as a result of a decision by
the Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) to approve the silicone-
filled breast implants that they both
manufacturer.
Mentor and Allergan announced on
November 17th that the FDA is now
allowing both companies to sell the
implants to women who want them
for cosmetic reasons. Previously,
the implants could only be sold
overseas or to women seeking breast.
reconstruction and revision surgery
through clinical studies.
In my year ago discussion of
Mentor, I pointed out that I believed
the company's shares were fairly
valued at a price of $48. Last week the
shares were trading at the $51 level
for an increase.of 6 percent. Add in a
dividend yield of 1.6 percent and you
have a reasonable but not outstanding
return.
To see how Mentor's shares might
fare going forward, consider that a
discounted earnings model yields an
intrinsic value of $65 per share, while
ValuePro's .more conservative free
cash flow to the firm model produces
an intrinsic value of $52 per share.
Mentor recently reported earnings
of 22 cents per share for the second
quarter of FY 2007, as compared to
25 cents a year ago. My earnings
estimate for FY 2007 is for $1.10 per
share, with a target price of about $48
per share. In other words, the shares
continue to remain fairly priced at
best.
However, Allergan is a different
situation entirely. When I discussed
Allergan a year ago, the share price
was $105. Last week the shares were
trading at approximately $119 per
share for an annual gain of just under
20 percent.
If youare notfamiliarwithAllergan,
thecompany is'aleadingdghiaiufacturer
of eye and skin care'"products. It
also produces pharmaceutical grade
Botox, now widely used to diminish
facial wrinkles.
So, can we expect another banner
year from Allergan? If we plug my
earnings estimate for FY 2006 of
$3.66 per share into a discounted
earnings model and let earnings grow
at a rate of 17.5 percent, which is the
Street's 5 year average growth rate,
the result is an intrinsic value of $148
per share.
Using the more conservative
free cash flow to the firm model, as
defined by the ValuePro algorithm,
in combination with a more subdued
projected earnings growth rate of 14
percent, yields an intrinsic value of
$139 per share.
If you divide the current price of
$119 per share by the trailing twelve
month (TTM) per share earnings
number of $3.54, you have a multiple,
or P/E, of 34. Multiply that P/E ratio
by my $3.66 per share earnings
estimate and you have a target
stock price of $125 per share, for an
estimated gain of 5 percent over the
next two to three months, or about
20 percent on an annualized basis.


Remember That Consequences Will Come
(Kent Heaton)


The wise man wrote, "Can a man take fire in his
bosom and his clothes not be burned? Or can a man walk
on hot coals and his feet not be scorched?" (Proverbs
6:27-28). A simple principle of action produces a reaction.
Throw a pebble into a pond and the ripples flow far out of
sight. One may not see the impact the ripples caused by the
pebble produce upon the far shore or objects floating on the
surface but an impact is made. So are the actions of all that
we do. Most of these reactions are good as we may smile at
someone who is having a difficult day and lift their spirits;
a good word can be spoken that changes the mood; a
thoughtful gesture will lighten someone's day.
There are times when a moment's reckless folly changes
more than one life. Adam and Eve did not think the eating
of the forbidden fruit would bring such change (Genesis 3).
It took the death of God's Son to bring man back to an
acceptable relationship with God. Abraham thought an
innocent lie would help protect his wife Sarai and himself
from the Egyptians. When a famine arose and Abraham
traveled to Egypt, he told Sarai to say she was his sister (in
reality she was his stepsister Genesis 20:12). Because of
his lie "Jehovah plagued Pharaoh and his house with
great plagues because of Sarai" (Genesis 12:17). Abraham
repeated this lie to Abimelech in Genesis 20. "But God
came to Abimelech in a dream of the night, and said to
him, "Behold, you are a dead man because of the woman
whom you have taken, for she is married" (Genesis 20:3).
Moses, in anger, smote the rock to bring forth water for
the rebellious people of God in Numbers 20. Because of
his anger at the people and failing to believe in Jehovah (to
sanctify the Lord before the people,) Moses was not
allowed to enter the promised land (Deuteronomy 34:4).


There was consequence to his actions. When the children of
Israel plundered the city of Jericho, Achan thought it a
small thing to take "a beautiful mantle from Shinar and
two hundred shekels of silver and a bar of gold fifty
shekels in weight" (Joshua 7:21). His decision led to his
death and the death of his sons, his daughters, his oxen, his
asses, and his sheep. There was consequence to his actions.
David lusted after Bathsheba and committed adultery (2
Samuel 11:2-5). Because of a moment's reckless folly,
David lied to Uriah the husband of Bathsheba (2 Samuel
11:6-12), caused him to be drunk (2 Samuel 11:13;
Habakkuk 2:15), murdered Uriah (2 Samuel 1:14-17) and
invoked the wrath of Jehovah (2 Samuel 11:27). The further
consequence of David's action was the death of an innocent
baby (2 Samuel 12:18) and the pronouncement of God upon
the house of David: "Now therefore, the sword shall never
depart from your house, because you have despised Me
and have taken the wife of Uriah the Hittite to be your
wife. Thus says the LORD, Behold, I will raise up evil
against you from your own household; I will even take
your wives before your eyes and give them to your
companion, and he will lie with your wives in broad
daylight. 'Indeed you did it secretly, but I will do this thing
before all Israel, and under the sun'" (2 Samuel
12:10-12). There were consequences to his single act of
adultery. What a price to pay!
The lesson is difficult to impress upon our minds. We do
not believe it will happen to us. When we fully understand
there are consequences to what we do, we will be more
careful about what we are doing. Playing with fire will burn
you. Playing with sin will cause much heartache and
sorrow. If only we can learn the lesson. If only.

There is also a dividend but it has a
negligible effect on the calculations.
What is exciting is that the 20
percent plus gain in share price
appears likely to continue thru FY
2007. Here is why. My projected
earnings number for FY 2007 is
$4.45 per share. If you assume that
the multiple or P/E ratio remains
constant at 34, Allergan's shares
should be trading at right around
$151 per share for an annual gain of
21 percent.

Letter To The Editor
The Gilchrist County Commission
certainly has its bushel of problems
with a rapidly growing population
that constantly needs expanded ser-
vices to be paid for by an always-tight
budget. But last week the Commis-
sion made front-page news by voting
unanimously to support the action of
Dixie County in placing a stone mon-
ument of the Ten Commandments on
their Courthouse steps. Such action
has been repeatedly found unconsti-
tutional, although many groups and
individuals have tried to make the
false case that the USA is a "Chris-
tian nation." The original European
settlers arrived at Plymouth Rock
to escape the authoritarian hand of
religious organizations. The only
mention of religion in the Constitu-
tion proscribes any religious test for
public office or the establishment of
a public religion. Religion is a per-
sonal matter and does not mix well
with politics and government as we
see daily in Iraq, Palestine, and else-
where throughout history, including
often in the United States.
Whatever the civic value of the Ten
Commandments, their usefulness is
translated into laws regarding theft,
murder, lying, elder abuse, and di-
vorce. But our laws clearly sidestep
any espousal of religion making the
commandments about other gods, etc.
clearly unconstitutional. Our County
Commission has a lot of work to do;
it should follow the advice of their
attorney and save their "cleverness"
and energy for the work they have
volunteered to do by placing their
names on the ballot as candidates for
public service, not unconstitutional
agitating. They should reject the pro-
posed resolution.

Letter To The Editor
Dear Editor
I find it necessary to respond to
how we as voters here in Gilchrist
County are being exposed to the cam-
paign of negativity. Winning on half
truths and lies is not winning. It may
be what you hear in the aftermath "its
just politics".
This is not about being Republican,
Democrats, Blue Dog, Conservative,
Liberal, or Etc. It is about what is
happening to us.
The whole page ad that ran Novem-
ber 2, 2006 in the Gilchrist County
Journal page 21 is a prime example.
Our U.S. Congressman Cliff Steams
has never refused to answer phone
calls to our county leaders. He of-
ten holds Town Hall meetings in our
county to address the concerns of our
citizens. He knows that Gilchrist
County exists.
I know U.S Congressman Cliff
Steams' and was very concerned
when this ad appeared. It is not in

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Last Sunday before church began I
noticed all the lovely Christmas pins
many of my friends were wearing.
Patricia Yates had a sparkling bow
pin, while my cousin Juanita Mikell
was wearing beautiful miniature
Christmas tree earrings. I noticed that
many of the women there had taken
the time to pull out their Christmas
pins and pin them on before leaving
home.
We have so many Christmas tradi-
tions to enjoy this time of year from
our trees hung with sentimental or-
naments made by the precious small
hands of our children when they were
young to the smell of fresh evergreen
wreaths. We Southerners have loads
of traditions, some of them are very
near and dear to our hearts. After sur-
veying the women of FBC I have to
tell you Christmas pins must surely
be one of them.
This weekend John and I hope to
start a new tradition; we plan to drive
through the Live Nativity Scene
which is sponsored each year by the
Jennings Lake Seventh-Day Adven-
tist Church. The live nativity will be
held Friday, Saturday, and Sunday
from 6:30 to 9 p.m. each night. The
event will be located off highway
313 on the Hicks and Robertson fam-
ily farm.

Nothing sets the mood for a Christ-
mas party quite like a cup of punch.
I do love a good cup of punch; don't
you? Maybe it's just that we don't
break out our punch bowl for every-
day occasions. As a general rule we
only make punch for special gather-
ings like a Christmas party.
After catering several weddings the
Southern Sisters came up with the
grand idea of using an Igloo 10 gal-
lon beverage cooler to mix our punch
in. Let me tell you the ol' Sisters were
pleased to throw out all those gallon
milk jugs we had used .in the past.
We just take our punch ingredients
and pour them into the Igloo stir it up
and we are ready for the reception. To
ladle the punch out of the Igloo we
use a tea pitcher. Another little tip we


have about punch is that if you serve
punch with ginger ale or carbonated
drink in it you could have a little
problem if you pour the ingredients
into a punch fountain. The punch
fountain will make so much foam
that the foam could roll over the side
and float onto the table top. Here are
a few of our favorite punch recipes.


2 packs of presweetened Kool-Aid
1 46-ounce can of pineapple juice
1 2-liter lemon/lime flavored soft
drink
Mix the Kool-Aid as directed on
pack and add the juice and soft drink.
You can vary the color of the punch
by buying the flavor of Kool-Aid that
is the color you need, for instance if
you need a red punch you can buy
strawberry Kool-Aid.



1 quart cranberry juice cocktail
1 quart pink lemonade
1 quart orange juice
1 quart pineapple juice
1 quart ginger ale, chilled
1 quart raspberry sherbert
Combine first 4 ingredients in a
large bowl; chill. Stir in ginger ale;
scoop sherbert into punch and serve
immediately. This recipe makes 1 1/2
gallons.




2 ounce jar instant coffee
2 cups boiling water
1 cup sugar
Mix all and chill. You can substi-
tute 2 cups of very strong coffee for
the instant coffee and water.
To serve mix coffee with:
1 gallon milk
1/2 gallon vanilla ice cream (soft-
ened) .
1/2 gallon chocolate ice cream (soft-
ened)
Top the punch with:
2 cups whipping cream (whipped)
Finish punch by sprinkling with 1
tablespoon of Hershey's Cocoa.

American Legion Airs
A notice to all Legionnaires dues will go up after January 1, 2007, so RENEW
now before the dues go up. The National American Legion had to raise their portion
to continue to provide their services from day to day, and like some other things, it all
runs downhill, so Department of Florida had to raise their portion, making it necessary
for the local Posts to do the same. This is the first time in over thirteen years the
Legion has had to increase dues. Their costs have increased for supplies just like ours
have at home, but if you renew before January, you save.
One of the slogans for the American Legion is "veterans still serving America."
Even though the Legion wants all eligible veterans to become part of the American
Legion, there are some veterans that still serve America and our local communities in
other ways. One way that we in Gilchrist County are fortunate, are those veterans
(and non-veterans, too) that continue to serve by being a Volunteer Firefighter. These
men and women, often working a regular job, will drop what they are doing and go
put out a fire, day or night, all for serving the community they live in, and at a
"volunteer wage," no pay. Often, when responding to a fire, they don't have the time
(and DON'T take the time) to stop and get a few bottles of Gatorade or water to drink
in order to replenish what they sweat out while fighting the fire. A suggestion as
maybe how the community might help out is to show up on a fire call with a cooler
full of cold water and Gatorade. One firefighter promised a front row seat to watch
them work if someone showed up. with a cooler of Gatorade. He suggested that
anyone interested in helping out in that manner, contact the fire chief at the closest
Volunteer Fire House and see if that would indeed be helpful, and the details of how
someone would know to bring a cooler to the scene. These Firefighters go out when
called to help others, so why not return that with a helpful gesture to them?
* Thursday, December 21, 2006, Trenton's Post 91 will have their annual Christmas
Dinner. It will be a covered dish dinner, with the Post supplying the turkey and ham,.
and the members bringing a favored covered dish item to share. Also, the Post is
asking that everyone bring an item of canned or dry goods for an area food pantry for
their food baskets for Christmas.
Allen Rawls Post 77, of the Florida American Legion, hosted the Fourth District
meeting last Saturday in Inverness. District Commander, Ray Hall, asked several of
his District Staff to speak on some of the needs of the Legion Posts throughout the
District and State. Fourth District Sergeant-at-Arms, Marie Kramer, of Post 166 in
Homassassa Springs, spoke about the protocols in observing flag etiquette, during the
Legion meetings and flag etiquette in general. Fourth District Judge Advocate,
Charlie Fidler, of Post 149 in Newberry, spoke about the need. for each Post to have
Legion Insurance to cover the member and property of the Post, and the importance of
insuring the Post By-Laws are up to date and meet the needs of that Post. Fourth
District Vice-Commander Jim Ramos spoke on the Children and Youth programs and
membership. Currently, the Fourth District is number one in membership in the State.
District Commander Hall asked if any Post was interested in hosting the Fourth
District Picnic to be held in April, so the location is not yet known. After the meeting
was over, Post 77 served a nice luncheon for all present.
Remember our Armed Forces all around the world every day in your thoughts
and prayers, and here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, their widows,
and the families of those called to active duty, helping out whenever and however we
can.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,

My Mother's Garden
My mother kept a garden, a garden of the heart.
She planted all good things that gave my life its start.
She turned me to the sunshine and encouraged me to dream,
fostering and nurturing the seeds of self-esteem.
And when life's storms came blowing through, she protected me enough,
But not too much because she knew I'd need to stand up strong and tough.
Her constant good example always taught me right from wrong,
markers for my pathway that will last a lifetime long.
I am my mother's garden; I am her legacy.
And I know today she feels the love reflected back from me.

Gilchrist County
Businessman Named
Master Logger
William S. Fuquay, of M.D. White,
Jr., Inc., in Trenton, has completed
a three-day education program de-
signed to train timber harvesters in
safe,, efficient and environmentally
sound logging practices. Completion
of this training earned him the indus-
try designation of Master Logger; a
professional logger with at least one
successful year of operating experi-
ence.
Fuquay returns to the Gilchrist
County area with improved creden-
tials to offer logging and forestry
services in this growing segment of
the local and state economy. For-
estry contributes $66.6 million to the
Gilchrist County economy. Approxi-
mately 530 employees work directly
in the County's forest industry, which
generates a $19.8 million payroll.
Forest products and paper companies
within the state collectively generate
$16.6 billion in manufactured prod-
ucts and create over 133,000 jobs in
local communities.
Fuquay traveled to Tallahassee,
where he participated in sessions
with 15 other participants. The class-
es covered technological innovations
in the logging industry, environmen-
tal management, the changing wood
supply and demands for more sophis-
ticated business practices. Lectures
included topics on timber security,
endangered species, planning for for-
est harvests, business finance, wage
management, logging safety, legal af-
fairs and the latest in environmental
regulations.
According to Bob Moore, Logger
Education Program Consultant, "the
program has as its goals the enhance-
ment of professionalism among log-
gers, the improvement of the state's
quality of life, the provision of a con-
tinuing flow of forest goods and ser-
vices and the protection of environ-
mental qualities of Florida's forests."


Ted Henley, is shown above at
20, of Trenton is shown after he
had joined the United States Ma-
rine Corp and served one year
in Okinawa. Mr. Henley joined
the Marine Corp, December 13,
1956. He is now retired and lives
in Trenton with his wife Marjorie
and family.

To date, more than 560 loggers have
completed the training and earned the
title of Master Logger.
Forests cover over 16 million acres
in Florida, nearly 48% of the state's
total land area. The Master Logger
program is sponsored by the Florida
Forestry Association and the Florida
Sustainable Forestry Initiative State
Implementation Committee.


If you think you are beaten, you are;
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you'd like to win, but think you
can't, it's almost a cinch you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost.
For out in the world we find, success
begins with a fellow's will; it's all in
the state of mind.
Life's battles don't always go to the
stronger or faster man; but soon or
late the man who wins is the one who
thinks he can.

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 know, li 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
of an active military personnel who
is not listed, please contact the Gil-
christ County Journal, so that person
can be listed the next time this article
is published.

and in the afternoon the same day
from 1:00 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

during the break and coffee or tea will
be available throughout the meeting
as usual.
These classes are offered in order to
meet the requirements of the auto in-
surance companies who offer an auto
insurance payment discount to those
seniors completing the program.
Please call Jean da Costa, instruc-
tor at (352) 493-7597 as soon as pos-

Thank God For Little Things
Thank you, God, for little things that
often come our way, the things we
take for granted but don't mention
when we pray; the unexpected cour-
tesy, the thoughtful, kindly deed, a
hand reached out to help us in the time
of sudden need. Oh make us more
aware, dear God, of little daily graces
that come to us with "sweet surprise"
from never-dreamed of places.

Bell Middle School
Eighth Graders "Buzz"
Their Way Through
Spelling Bee
By Michelle Knapik
W-A-L-T-Z was the word that
kicked off the 2006-2007 Bell Mid-
dle School Spelling Bee. After con-
testant number one danced her way
through the first word, the remaining
24 competitors eagerly waited for Mr.
Surrency to give them their turn.
Round after round, contestants
began making mistakes that ulti-
mately ended their chances of win-
ning. Amid thunderous applause and
cheers, three lone students survived
seven rounds of words such as en-
thusiasm, leotard and agnostic. Af-
ter 6th grader, Olivia Bailey, missed
the word nightingale, two 8th grade
boys remained. During the eighth
and final round, Lucas Wilson glided
his way around Kody Houston by
correctly spelling gondola. Lucas
claimed the title of 2006-2007 Bell
Middle School Spelling Bee Cham-
pion. Both Lucas and Cody will rep-
resent Bell Middle School in the dis-
trict competition held at 9:30 a.m. on
January 8th in the Bell High School
Auditorium.
The middle school Language Arts
teachers tested their students and


chose the 25 students who would rep-
resent the sixth, seventh and eighth
grades. Those contestants were:
6th Grade: Olivia Bailey, Tyler
Cutts, Matthew Harrell, Emily Hel-
ton, Brandon Prescott, Kaleb Spears
and Victoria Waldron
7th Grade: Elli Carranza, Ian
Crocker, Courtney Diamond, Amber
Hurley, Danny King, Katie Rappold,
Kailob Rehberg and Nick Sanders
8th Grade: Bobby Brito, Quen-
tin Hudson, Kody Houston, Chris
McRae, Amanda Mesa, Lacy Nobles,
Madison Rutkowski, Jennie Smith,
Brad Teckenbrock and Lucas Wil-
son.
Congratulations to all contestants
and good luck to Lucas and Kody.
Bell Middle/High School is proud of
you.

And the Grinch, with his.Grinch-
feet ice cold in the snow, stood puz-
zling and puzzling, how could it be
so? It came without ribbons. It came
without tags. It came without pack-
ages, boxes or bags. And he puzzled
and puzzled 'till his puzzler was
sore. Then the Grinch thought of
something he hadn't before. What if
Christmas, he thought, doesn't come
from a store. What if Christmas, per-
haps, means a little bit more.

Interact is a Rotary sponsored ser-
vice club for high school students
that gives them an opportunity to be

skills and initiative while making
new friends. The youth of today are
our future. They will be tomorrow's

responsible, productive members of
society. Interact just like Rotary is

bers all over the world! The world is
getting smaller by the use of the In-

in many countries that can be easily
contacted.

Weekly Wrap Up


By Sean Boutwell- Bulldog sports
Tuesday, December 5th vs Lafay-
ette Varsity girls The Lady Hornets
came to town Tuesday evening led by
one of the state's top basketball pros-
pects Nattily Land. The Lady Bull-
dogs had a frustrating start but kept
it close through the first quarter. The
rest of the game the Lady Hornets
dominated the scoring. Anna Tousig-
nant led the Lady Bulldogs, scoring
14 of their 30 points. Nattily Land led
the Lady Hornets with 28 points. The


game ended with the Lady Bulldogs
suffering an 80-30 loss.
Varsity boys The Bulldogs were
2-1 before Tuesday night and were
looking to get some momentum roll-
ing against the Hornets. In the first
half the teams matched each other
shot for shot as the second quar-
ter ended with the score tied at 26
apiece. The Bulldogs offense came
out slow in the second half and the
team didn't get any momentum until
reserve players, Cory Edwards and


to Citizens of t6e town of Beff:
Thank you for the confidence you have shown by
electing me as Town Councilperson. I look forward
to serving and working to the betterment of the
community.
Again, Thank You.

Joel Elliot, hit back to back three
pointers. The lead was too great to
overcome and Lafayette's offense
played keep away in the 4th quarter
to win the game 63-53. Tyson Railey
led the Bulldogs with 17 points and
David Bailey had an all around good
game with 12 points, 12 rebounds,
and 5 assists.
Thursday, December 7th vs Espir-
it de Corps Varsity girls The Lady
Bulldogs were set to prove that they
were a better team than they played
Tuesday night. The Lady Bulldogs'
abilities and talent highly outmatched
the, Lady Warriors. At halftime the
Lady Bulldogs led 28-0 and by the
end of the game won 56-7. Anna
Tousignant once again led the Lady
Bulldogs in scoring with 20 points.
Krystal Whitley had a great game
with 7 rebounds and 7 steals.
Varsity guys The Bulldogs played
the Warriors evenly in the first quar-
ter but slowly pulled away the rest of
the game. Coach Mel put in all his
players to keep the team fresh and
everyone co"nil buted tp, the 75-58
win. The Bulldogs kept the Warriors
defense off balance. If David Bailey
or Tyson Railey weren't scoring two
pointers the ball was passed to Trent
Shepherd for a three pointer. Bailey
finished the game with a double-
double scoring 21 points and grab-
bing 10 rebounds. Trent hit five big
three pointers and got a lay-up to fin-
ish with 17 points. The only flaw of
the night was the Bulldogs' defense
letting Kevin Miller of the Warriors
score 43 points.

The Division Of
Forestry Announces The
Beginning Of
Winter Grass Fire
Season
Due to the weather forecast for
today and this coming weekend, the
Division of Forestry is announcing
the beginning of the winter grass
fire season. With temperatures dip-
ping into the high 20s to low 30s,
wind gusts reaching 20 mph, and the
continued rain deficit in north central
Florida, these combined conditions
are an indication' of high wildfire
potential. Hard freezes kill grasses,
making them extremely more flam-
mable. Winds gusting up to 20 mph
would certainly assist in dispersing
firebrands from a fire, causing that

The recent rainfall experienced
over the area in the last 24 hours was
minimal and only temporarily effec-
tive. Although there is no voluntary
or mandatory burn ban in effect in
the surrounding counties, residents
are still urged to use extreme caution
with all outdoor activities that could
cause a wildfire. Yard debris pile
burning, campfires, cooking fires and
even welding equipment, lawnmow-


ers and ATV use have the potential to
spark a wildfire.

Susan J. Bryant Retires
After 26 Years As
Supervisor
Of Elections
(Continued from page)
They have traveled across the coun-
try from Oregon to Maine. She said
that her husband likes nothing better
than to take an old forest road using
only the compass to return them to
a main road. Hopefully they will be


able to spend even more time travel-
ing in the future.
In closing, our Supervisor of Elec-
tions said, "I am blessed by the best
and am so honored to have had the
opportunity to serve Gilchrist Coun-
ty, God Bless you all."
Friends and family of Susan J.

FWC Law Enforcement
Unveils Strategy
Col. Julie Jones, director of law
enforcement for the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC), revealed her division's five-
year Strategic Plan to the commis-
sioners and the public Wednesday. It
will be a driving force for the direc-
tion the division takes in the future.
"We are Florida's woods and wa-
ter guardians," Jones said. "Division
officers are the sole law enforcement
presence in many of the most remote
parts of the state. People in these ar-
eas rely on our officers to protect life
and property. The presence of FWC
officers in these areas, along with
their unique training and equipment
makes them the first responders."
The plan includes the primary mis-
sion -- protecting Florida's natural re-


sources and people through proactive
and responsive law enforcement --
and defines the goals, strategies, val-
ues and guiding principles of the divi-
sion. FWC is the largest conservation
law enforcement agency in the na-
tion. The division's motto is "patrol,
protect, preserve." Success-is mea-
sured by compliance, not the number
of arrests. Four core missions outline
the responsibilities of FWC officers,
which in addition to resource protec-
tion, encompass boating and water-
ways safety, maritime and wilderness
law enforcement patrol, as well as
mutual aid and emergency response.
Officers have responded to numerous
natural disasters, including eight hur-
ricanes. "Due to the agency's ability
to enforce all state laws, its unique
capabilities and specialized training
and equipment, and our track record
in responding to natural disasters and
critical incidents, FWC is recognized
as an invaluable and necessary mutu-
al aid partner in Florida's emergency
response network," Jones said.

Branford Masonic
Lodge
Members of Branford Masonic
Lodge No. 130, recently traveled
to Bell, to the home of Mrs. Sandra
Cannon, (widow of Mr. William C.
Cannon). She was presented with a
certificate commemorating her late
husband's 50 Years of Masonic Ser-
vice. Mr. Cannon was a member of
Abney Lodge 211, Kershaw, South
Carolina. Mrs. Cannon was also pre-
sented a Masonic Widow's Pin and a
card identifying her as a Master Ma-
son's widow. It was explained that
she should wear the pin with honor,
especially during travel, so that any
Master Mason would recognize her
status and come to her aid if she
should need help.
Mrs. Cannon was reminded that
although her husband was gone, she
was still a part of the Masonic family
and welcome to attend any event at
any lodge other than during regular
lodge meetings. Mrs. Cannon was
very appreciative of the visit and
thanked all for coming.


Ferrellgas Offers Safety
Tips For Heating
Appliances
As winter weather sets in, the em-
ployee-owners of the Ferrellgas team
want to remind local homeowners to
be safe \\hen heating their homes. ;
'Propane space lieater-s can be -an
efficient and effective way to keep
warm," says Service Center General
Manager Andy Gatlin. "However, it
is crucial that safety precautions are
carefully followed and the appliances
are used "for their intended purpose
only. Some propane space heaters are
designed only for use outdoors. Oth-
ers are designed only for use indoors.
Check your owner's manual or con-
tact a qualified service technician to
be sure you are using the right kind
of heater."
Even when used properly, any
heating device can emit dangerous
levels of odorless, tasteless, and dan-
gerous carbon monoxide (CO). The
following suggestions and safety tips
were compiled by Ferrellgas, the Na-
tional Propane Gas Association, and
the Propane Education and Research
Council.
Have a qualified service technician
check your propane appliances and
venting systems annually, preferably
before the heating season begins.
Be aware of the dangers of carbon
monoxide. High levels of CO can be
generated from heaters that are not
designed for indoor use. High levels
of CO can make you dizzy, give you
headaches, or cause flu-like symp-
toms. In extreme cases, extended
exposure to CO can result in brain
damage or death. Install UL-listed
CO detectors on every level of your.
home, or as recommended by the
manufacturer. Never use a gas oven
or range-top burners to provide space
heating. Never use portable heaters
indoors, unless they are designed and
approved for indoor use. Never use
a barbecue grill (propane or char-
coal) indoors for cooking or heating.
Regularly check your appliance ex-
haust vents for blockage.
If you suspect CO is present, act
immediately.
1. If you or a family member show
physical symptoms of CO poison-
ing, get everyone out of the building
and call 911 or your local fire depart-
ment.
2. If it is safe to do so, open win-
dows to allow entry of fresh air, and
turn off any appliances you suspect
may be releasing the CO.
3. If no one has physical symptoms
of CO poisoning, but you suspect that
CO is present, call your propane re-
tailer or a qualified service technician
to check CO levels and your propane
equipment.
The propane experts at Ferrellgas
want to make sure everyone has a
safe and happy holiday season. More
safety and appliance information is
available by visiting the Ferrellgas
Web site at www.ferrellgas.com, or at
the PERC Web site at www.usepro-
pane.com.

any way the conduct of the man that
I know personally. I went to our
County Administrator Ron McQueen
and asked him if he or anyone in the
county office felt that we here in Gil-
christ County were ever neglected,
or had Congressman Stearns or his
staff ever refused to help or failed to
return a phone call. His answer was
NEVER. He stated that Congress-
man Steams office has always been
very helpful 100% of the time.
The information n this ad reflects
to what extent an individual will go
to distort the truth. We as people
need to stand up for the principals
that we hold and the morals that we
believe in.

hold classes.
Children who once lacked confi-
dence have acquired not only new


confidence, but leadership skills as
well from this program. Self defense
skills and fighting technique were
only a very small part of the martial
arts program which was offered.
As a parent of a student, I have
watched children working during
these classes. Constant repetition
of fighting forms, the bite of num
chakas and the physical training
were not easy. However, the rewards
were great. Rewards which did not
involve the points on a video game.
The rewards came in the form of self
esteem and honor.
When was the last time you
watched your child and saw pure joy
when he or she finally topped 300
jumping jacks? Or heard your child
utter "yeah" as they mastered a cer-
tain goal?
In this day and age to find two
people willing to guide children and
teach them "Life Lessons Free of
Charge," is extremely rare. We are
fortunate to have Mr. Bennett and
Miss Gregory in our community.
The only thing needed is a build-
ing, or a room where these children
can continue to train. A room where

This contest was sponsored by the
Suwannee River Cruisers Boat Club.
The festival displayed many out-
children put down game boys, and
are physically active three days a
week. A room where a sense of pride
and honor can be found.
I challenge everyone who reads
these words to pick up your phone
and call anyone you know who may
be able to help! Help us to find a
place for the children of Trenton to
continue what they have started.
The children are waiting and pray-
ing that a Christmas Miracle can be
found for them.

Alachua County Man
Arrested For Possession
Of Child Pornography
Attorney General Charlie Crist
announced that an Alachua County
man was arrested today on multiple
charges of possession of child por-
nography and promoting the sexual
performance of a child.
Investigators discovered Zaldy
Ramos Aquinde's distribution and
promotion of pornographic videos of
children during an undercover online
investigation conducted by Crist's
Child Predator CyberCrime Unit.
Aquinde, 36, placed pornographic
videos of young girls on the inter-
net, where they were discovered by
a CyberCrime investigator who was'
able to trace them back to Aquinde. A
search warrant was then executed at
Aquinde's Gainesville residence and
his computer was seized, along with
hundreds of videos of child pornogra-
phy. Aquinde was arrested by officers
with the Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit, the Alachua County Sheriff's
Office, the Gainesville Police De-
partment, Immigration and Customs
Enforcement and the Federal Bureau
of Investigation.
"Child pornography destroys the
innocence of children," said Crist.
"We will continue the fight against
those who prey on our children in
such a heinous manner."
Law enforcement officers execut-
ing the search warrant verified that
Aquinde's computer contained the
videos found online by the under-
cover investigator. Aquinde admit-
ted that he knowingly possessed the
pornography found on his computer.
The videos were of young girls, some
potentially as young as seven years
old. The computer removed from the
residence will undergo further foren-
sic analysis to locate possible addi-
tional pornographic images or videos
of children.
Aquinde is currently being held
at the Alachua County Jail. He is
charged with one count of promoting
the sexual performance of a child, a
second-degree felony, and five counts
of possession of child pornography, a
third-degree felony. If convicted on
all charges, he faces up to 40 years
in prison.
The Child Predator CyberCrime
Unit's mission is to protect children
from computer-facilitated sexual
exploitation. The unit does this by
working cooperatively on a statewide
basis with law enforcement agencies
and prosecutors to provide resources
and expertise, while preventing the
spread of these crimes through edu-
cation and community awareness.
Aquinde's arrest is the 31st made by
officers with the unit since its incep-
tion in October 2005. The Child Pred-
ator CyberCrime Unit is a member of
the Internet Crimes Against Children
Task Force (ICAC) of North Florida.

I have always thought of Christmas
time, when it has come round, as. a
good time; a kind, forgiving, chari-
table time; the only time I know of,
in the long calendar of the year, when
men and women seem by one consent
to open their shut-up hearts freely,
and to think'of people below them as
if they really were fellow passengers
to the grave, and not another race of
creatures bound on other journeys.
Charles Dickens

The Church does not supersti-
tiously observe days, merely as days,
but as memorials of important facts.
Christmas might be kept as well upon
one day of the year as another; but
there should be a stated day for com-
memorating the birth of our Saviour,
because there is danger that what
may be done on any day, will be ne-
glected.
Samuel Johnson

The message of Christmas is that
the visible material world is bound to
the invisible spiritual world.
