Old Town Man Is Killed In Single

Vehicle Accident Friday In Trenton


By John M..Ayers
A group of workers that had just left
Overstreet Mulching company plant
in Trenton were traveling north on
SW 10th Avenue in a 1992 Ford van
into Trenton to cash their pay checks
when the vehicle crashed into a tree
and a parked Chevy Trail Blazer kill-
ing one of the passengers. A man that
was riding in the back seat of this ve-
hicle was killed in this accident.
Florida Highway Patrol reported
that Domingo Escobedo, 42, of Old
Town was pronounced dead at the
scene by Gilchrist County Emergen-
cy Medical.personnel. The Ford van
was driven by Clavido Hernandez


of Trenton. He was driving north on
SW10th Avenue and was entering a
portion of the road where the right-
of-way narrows and becomes SW 5th
Avenue as it enters the City of Tren-
ton. At this portion of the right-of-
way, the road takes a slight turn to the
west. The driver was reported to have
been traveling at a high rate of speed
when he entered this area of the road.
The driver lost control of the van and
the vehicle began fishtailing before it
began to slide sideways and rotated
counter clockwise. The van slid to the
west side of the dirt road and began to
overturn. The roof of the \ an was re-


ported to have struck a tree. The van
continued to slide around the tree be-
fore it crashed into a 2002 Chevrolet
Trail Blazer that was parked in front
of a residence. The vehicle belonged
to Johnny Santerfeit and was unoccu-
pied at the time of the accident.
Gilchrist County EMS transported
the driver and Sandra Albarado of
Fanning Springs to Shands Hospital
where the\ \\ere treated for non-life
threatening injuries. Sergeant Dan
Miller of the Florida Highway Patrol
reported this accident remains under
investigation and charges are pend-
ing.

Trenton Commission Tables Decision

On Contract Of Downtown

Redevelopment Plan


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission
wasted little time in taking care of
their business agenda Monday night
as they tried to complete their meet-
ing before the BCS National Cham-
pionship game began.
Trenton City Attorney David M.
"Duke" Lang delivered the Oath of
S Ortice to each of the three Contmis-
sioners.
The Board changed their agenda
to allow the RMPK Group contract
to be discussed under Consent items.
Attorney Lang explained to the board
that under consultant contract nego-
S tiations, the board can now begin ne-
gotiations with the RNMPK Group in-
volving the construction phase of the
City of Trenton Communirt Rede el-
opment Plan. The attorney explained
. that the estimated price of $565,000
was based on the 54 million estimat-
ed price of the entire plan.
Commissioner Glen Thigpen ex-
plained to the board that he is receiv-
ing some feedback from the com-
Smunity involving the Community
Redevelopment Plan. "I would be in
favor of tabling this decision on this
contract to allow the public to give
the board more information," he ex-
plained "I'd rather make sure that
we are starting off Pn the right foot in
this project." Thigpen explained.
e just received this contact, we
can't make a decision on this tonight,"
explained Mayor Pete Randolph.
Comnmisioner Thigpen made the
motion to table a decision on the pro-
posed construction contract until the
board had more time to hear from the
public and take a closer look at the
financing. Commissioner Tim Kin-
sey gave a second to the motion for
discussion. The board, agreed with a
5-0 appro\ j1.
City Manager Jered Ottenwess rec-
ognized Russell Moore with RMPK
Group to allow the board to ask ques-
tions of the reIpresentative. Moore
told the board that he was not sure of
what the public concerns were but he
would be glad to answer any ques-
tions. He explained that the RMPK
Group has waited eight months and
they can wait until the City Commis-

sion determines what is best for the
community.
Moore explained that the financing
involving the CRA program is a very\
important aspect of the program.
"The Board should make sure the
funds are available from taxes to pay
for the project through 2032," Moore
explained.
Moore explained thr. the tliee
phases of the plan. Main Street, Park
Alleyways, and Side Streets could be
identified separately in order to sa% e
revenues. Moore explained that the
Top Priority appeared to be the Main
Street portion that is estimated to cost
$2 million. The Park Alleyways por-
tion. of the. program is estimated to
cost $1 million. The third phase, the
Side Street portion of the plan is also
estimated to cost $1 million.
The Nla.or allowed the public to
address the board invol\ ing the plan.
Trenton businessman Alan Mikell
asked the board if the Department of
Transportation would allow a median
to be placed in the middle of a state
highway?
Russell Moore explained that the
DOT has approved the proposed plan
in preliminary discussion involving
truck traffic with median in center
of road. The DOT has standards and
they won't be approved if standards
are not met, he explained.
Mayor Randolph explained that
when the Downtown Redevelopment
Plan public hearings were originally
held, the public did not attend due to
a lack of interest No thiat-the,board
is about to approve the contract, the


board is beginning to receive both
positive and negative feedback.
Commissioner Kinsey explained
that he was in favor of setting a pub-
lic meeting to listen to the public's
concerns involving the downtown
plan. The board established a Special
Meeting would be held January 22,
at 6:00 p.m., to give the public an op-
puiturdii. to. addles. tle board.
1 ha\e no objecuon to the. plan,
but will all of the '5 million be spent
just in the down\nto n area"" Trenton
resident and businessman Wilbur
Bush asked the board. "I feel the
board should consider paving some
of the streets in Trenton that are not
necessarily\ in' the downtown area. I
think the money should be used more
wisely throughout the town," Bush
explained.
At the present time the City of
Trenton has spent $40,000 on the ar-
chitectural and engineering portion
of the plan.
Trenton businessman, Paul Redd,
told the board he feels that for the
$7,000 he has paid in taxes that he
is not receiving- his moneys' worth
of services. He added that the' large
pot hole on NE 10th St. needs to be
repaired and repaved, but the City of
Trenton wants to spend the money for
the Downtown Redevelopment Plan.
Trenton resident Lavaughn Sessions
praised the Commission for their ac-
tions tonight in tabling a decision on
this plan until more financial infor-
mation is available. He challenged

Bell Seats New Council Members

And Heads In A New Direction

For Future Plavning

Council To Consider Impact Fee and To Pave City Streets


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council and Presi-
dent Iris Roberts welcomed three
new council members and a mayor
Thursday evening in the first meet-
ing of the new year. Mrs. Roberts, the
matriarch of the council. 'explained
that the council now has three former
students and a principal she had pre-
viously taiuht.
Atorne\ for the Town of Bell, Da-
vid M. "Duke" Lang, gave the Oath
of Office to Council members Joe
Akins, Hugh Sanders, Al Powers and
Mayor DarrI Bryan. The council
also voted to appoint a new Toi n
Clerk. Councilman Joe Akins spoke
of the application of Tammy Jones.
He made the motion to hire Ms.-
Jones as the Town Clerk. Council-
man Hugh Sanders gave a second to
the motion. The council voted 5-0 in
favor of the motion. The new Town
'Clerk will serve in this capacity until
the next Town election is held.
President Iris Roberts again asked
the audience attending if anyone had'
any information about the wall hang-
ing that went missing from the Bell
Town Hall-Depot during the Christ-
mas festival? Town Manager' Dan
Cavanaugh explained that the wall
hanging that was over 20 years old
identied members of the former
Bell Chamber of Commerce. The
wall hanging was made of a quilting
material and was blue and white. It
has, |;'e! 20 indi\ iduals and business-
es ti.t l\ete members of the organi-
zationrivhen the chamber was active
in the late 1970s. Mrs. Roberts asked
for the wall hanging to be returned to
the Town of Bell so it can be again
hung on the wall behind the council
table.
Andy Home of Home's Martial
Arts Academy made an application
for a Conditional Use Permit to move
his business to a larger location in
the town. "I will be working with
the kids and I will be checking their
student report cards and impose on
them to work hard in their studies,"
Andy Home told the Town Council.
Councilman Ray Sanders made a
motion to approve the Conditional
Use Permit. Councilman Al Powers
gave a second to the motion before


the board approved the application
by a 5-0 \ ore
Diane Rondolet. Gilchnst County
and Bell Code Enforcement officer,
presented a report to the council. She
asked the council if there were any
quesuons the board members had.
Councilman Al Powers compliment-
ed Diane Rondolet on doing a good
job and "Keep up the good work." '
The Council took action to request
the Town Manager, Dan Cavanah,
send a letter to the Gilchrist County
Property Appraiser thanking him and
his staff. Chris Ruggles, for provid-
ing the Ton n of Bell \ ith a full color
large scale size map for zoning.
Bell Malor Darryl Bryan told
the council and audience attending
the Thursday evening meeting that
he was excited about Bell's future.
"There is not anyway we can stop the
growth that is coming to our commu-
nity, we all need to work together for
better growth," he explained.
Councilman Ray Sanders remarked
the council needs to work together to
control the gro\\ th that is coming into
the community.
The To"n Manager requested the
Council to install a fence around the
park to protect the park from people
driving through the area alter dark. "I
would like to go and look at the park
and see the situation that exists to
determine if posts and a cable would
better serve to protect the park,"
Councilman Joe Akins explained.
Mayor Darryl Bryan recommended
that the Council pass a No Trespass-
ing-No Loitering ordinance to allow
the Town of Bell to call the Gilchrist
County Sheriffs' Office when a situ-
ation arises. He also explained that
many of the problems involve young
people using alcohol at the cemetery
and at the park after dark.
A resident in the audience asked
the board, "What are the kids to do
after dark?" She asked the Council to
consider a recreation center to allow
the youth to enjoy games, pool tables
in a good atmosphere.
The Council agreed that paving
and resurfacing streets in Bell is an
important issue. "The streets that
have already been paved that need
repair should be done first," Coun-


cilman Ray Sanders explained. Mrs.
Iris Roberts asked each councilman
and the Mayor to bring fixe streets
that they feel need repair back to the
board by the next meeting.
'The Council agreed to have the at-
torney draft a resolution that would
be considered to cancel the Con-
ditional Use Permit in the Town of
.Bell., On a motion by Hugh. Sanders
with a second from Ray Sanders the
board agreed by a 5-0 vote to be in
support of this action.
Councilman Joe Akins asked if a
series of \workshops could be held
to give the ne\ er council members
an opportunity to learn more about
the many requirements and state
guidelines that the Town Council is
required to follow. "I would like to
see the business people in Bell give
more input to the council regarding
important issues," Councilman Akins
explained.
The Bell Vision Advisory. meeting
will be held on Monday, January 15
and 29 beginning at 6:00 p.m. This
meeting will be held in the Town
Hall.
The Council, with a motion by'Joe
Akins and a second by Hugh Sand-
ers, agreed to appoint Tammy Jones
to the interim Town Clerk position.
The Council approved this action by
a 5-0 vote.
Councilman Al Powers told the
board that the Town of Bell should
adopt an Impact Fee of $1,750.00.
The Council agreed and began to
support the issue when the attorney
explained to the board that there is an
extensive guideline that requires the
Town of Bell to hold Public Hearings
and determine what the Impact Fee
revenues Would be used for before
the fee could be approved. The board
will also consider opting into the Gil-
christ County Impact Fee program in
the next meeting.
Councilman Ray Sanders com-
plimented the Mary Jordan family
and the volunteers that produced the
Christmas Festival and Parade. He

$300.00 in appreciation for their hard

Comments
By: John M. Ayers
How about, Urban Meyer and his
staff and those FLORIDA GATORS !
The Gators just completely dominated
the undisputed, undefeated No. 1
ranked team Ohio State by blasting
the Buckeyes 41-14 Monday
night in the Tostitos BCS National
Championship game.
The Gators are the undisputed
No. 1 team, with the BCS title to
prove it. The Gators' dominance was
unquestionable as they answered the
Bucks' first touchdown with a score
and just continued to strangle the
Bucks' offense for four quarters.
I was hoping the Gators would
play four quarters because they have
the leadership and coaching and now
they have the 2006 BCS National title
to prove it. A National Championship
celebration will be held at Ben Hill
Griffin stadium on Saturday, January
13 from noon to 1 P.M.
There is not much more to say
other than GO GATORS!

I want to applaud the Trenton
City Commission and the decision
they made to table the decision to
finalize the contract on the downtown
redevelopment plan.
The board did the right thing in
taking a close look at the financial
perspective a n how' much money\
can they really.affQodo spend on. j st
downtown redevelopment.
- I have several concerns regarding
this plan. First and foremost, how
will spending this much money
just in streetscape,. parking and
redirecting single traffic lanes bring
enough people to the downtown area


to justify going in debt until 2032?
With the question of ad valorem
property values being the sole
funding mechanism that seems to be
targeted to repay this bonding issue,if
the Florida Legislature is successful
in changing the taxing mechanism,
where will the City of Trenton get
their money to repay this debt?
I for one think that the program
is worth a second look, but I also
think that the City of Trenton needs
to repair the road problems that they
currently have before they set their
sails for new streetscaping projects.
The board needs to think long and
hard before they decide to take the
businesses and residents with them
into debt until 2032.

Letter to the Editor
I would like to express my sincere
apology for the damage that I com-
mitted to the campuses of Bell and
Trenton High Schools, in October.
What I did was not a malicious act,
it was meant to be a senior prank.
Nothing more, nothing less.
I am now asking for the communi-
ties' forgiveness and hope that other
students will learn from my mistake.
Sincerely, Ivey Kee


Trenton Commission
(Continued From Page One)
the board to make the best decision
that they can based on what God has
given them. He told the btard to be.
careful of going too deep in debt
and to make sure the revenue base
is available to pay for this project.
The Commission will hold a Special
Meeting to hear the public's concern
involving this plan on Monday, Janu-
ary 22 beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd
"...The world looks brand-new,"
said Hobbes. "A New Year...a fresh
clean start," said Calvin. "It's like
having a big white sheet of paper to
draw on," said Hobbes. "A day full,
of possibilities," said Calvin. "It's a
magical world, Hobbes old buddy...
let's go exploring."
Bill Watterson wrote those words
in December of 1995 as he concluded
the last of his Calvin and Hobbes
comic strips, a framed copy of
which hangs on the wall by my desk.
Moreover, every year since 1995,
I open my first column of the New
Year by quoting that phrase because
it is a reminder that the New Year is
like an untouched canvas waiting for
whatever creation you are inclined to
place upon it.
From an investment perspective,
the financial markets are analogous
to Calvin's magical world...full of
possibilities. All that remains is for
you to go exploring.
Wall Street has now closed the
curtain on a 2006 performance
that astonished virtually everyone.
The Dow Jones industrial average
chalked up a gain of 16.3 percent for
the year, the NASDAQ a gain of 9.5
percent, while the S&P 500 was up
13.6 percent. However, keep in mind
that the majority of the returns came
during the last quarter of the year.
Although I dislike the idea of
trying to forecast annual market
performance, no first of the year
column would be complete without
some sort of an annual projection.
Therefore, if all goes well the Dow
should end the year north of 13,000,
with S&P 500 exceeding 1,530, while
the NASDAQ breaks through 2,650.
Those numbers assume that the
inflation genie remains bottled up
at under 2 percent, interest rates
remain at their current levels, the
price of a barrel of crude oil does not
exceed $65 and' the nation's level of
economic growth does.not fall below
.,.2 .perceIt. If those a- sun.Ation' are
not met, and I do not believe that
they will be, all bets are off and Wall
Street will be just one more domino
to fall.
As you look ahead to the new
investment year, you need to
remember that you prepare and
load your weapons before a battle,
not after. Regardless of how the
markets do overall, there are bargains
available for those willing to do the
necessary research in advance of
market moves.
Meanwhile, over the next few
weeks you are going to be inundated
with market forecasts of every
description. You need to remember
that the trick is not to fall sway to the
passions of the market or the tenets
of its prognosticators. No one said
this better than Wall Street legend,
Lucien Hooper.
"What always impresses me,"
he wrote, "is how much better the
relaxed,long-term owners of stock do.
The relaxed investor is usually better
informed and more understanding of
essential values; he is more patient
and less emotional."
However, if you fall sway to those


What Jesus Said About Homosexuality
(Kent Heaton)


Nothing at least directly. A national'radio host was
discussing homosexuality with his listeners and arguing
that such a "huge issue" as homosexuality confronts the
world and yet the Lord never "said anything about it. To
the credit of one listener the observation was made that
Jesus never said anything about pedophiles either but that
did not make it acceptable. Beyond the rhetoric of shock
radio and the noxious liberal view of acceptance of
everything is the foundation of what is wrong with those
who hold a blasphemous view of God's word. They are not
seeking truth nor do they desire to find the righteousness of
God but in their agnostic self centered views of tolerance in
the intellectual platitudes mocking the morality of holiness
and purity our society slips deeper into moral anarchy.
Jesus did not have to specifically state in the red-letter
edition of the Bible that homosexuality is an abomination -
His Father did! Jesus Christ never elevated His word above
the word of His Father. "Do you not believe that I am in
the Father, and the Father is in Me? The words that I say
to you I do not speak on My own initiative, but the Father
abiding in Me does His works ... For I did not speak on
My own initiative, but the Father Himself who sent Me
has given Me a commandment as to what to say and what
to speak" (John 14:10; 12:49). See also John 3:34; 5:19;
6:38; 7:16; 8:28.
Jesus' Father condemned homosexuality and He has not
changed His mind on the matter. "For the wrath of God is
revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and
unrighteousness of.men who suppress the truth in
unrighteousness ... For this. reason God gave them over
to degrading passions; for their women exchanged the
natural function for that which is unnatural, and in the


same way also the men abandoned the naturalfunction of
the woman and burned in their desire toward one another,
men with men committing indecent acts and receiving in
their own persons the due penalty of their error. And just
as they did not see fit to acknowledge God any longer, God
gave them over to a depraved mind, to do those things
which are not proper" (Romans 1:18,26-28).
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not
inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither
fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate,
nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor
drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the
kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). "Law is not made
for a righteous person, but for those who are lawless and
rebellious, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy
and profane, for those who kill their fathers or mothers,
for murderers and immoral men and homosexuals hs4
kidnappers and liars and perjurers, and whatever eke is'
contrary to sound teaching" (1 Timothy 1:9-10).
Jehovah God made it very clear under the Law of Moses:
"You shall not lie with a male as one lies with a female; it
is an abomination" (Leviticus 18:22). The penalty for
homosexuality under the Law of Moses was death. The
consequence today is spiritual death and damnation in
eternal fire. "Just as Sodom and Gomorrah and the cities
around them, since they in the same way as these indulged'
in gross immorality and went after strange flesh, are
exhibited as an example in undergoing the punishment of
eternalfire" (Jude 7; see Genesis 19). Believe the words of
Jesus Christ. Believe the words of Jehovah God. They are
the same words. Salvation can only be found in these
words.

Letter to the Editor
I would like to respond to the letter
to the editor from Dale McClarigan
on December 21st.
I understand what Mr. McClarigan
is saying about the students who do
not attend college. However, I would
like to point out that many of those
students could enroll and attend Lake
City Community College in order to
earn a "trade" or "vocational" degree.
I feel that many students do not know
anything but Liberal Arts degrees.
Also, many of them can't make the
50-mile drive every day to take these
classes. Now they can begin taking
courses right here in our county.
At LCCC, we offer many Associate
in Science degrees in many areas in-
cluding the Academy of Allied Health
Programs, Business Industrial, and
Golf/Landscape/Forestry. To narrow
the fields down, we offer Pharmacy
Technician Management, Veterinary
Technology, Business Administra-
tion, Office Administration, Golf
Course Operations, and Landscape
Technology, just to name a few.
I personally have taught many
courses in business here at LCCC the
past six years, driving every day from.
my home in Trenton. I hope to be
teaching some of these same subjects
at the Gilchrist Center to many of our
county students.
The majority of my accounting
students have been Golf and Land-
scape students. I am always over-
joyed to hear them tell me they are
leaving here with jobs that pay in the
$30,000-$40,000 range.

Letter To The Editor
To the Citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Levy County:
My profound anticipation the last
several years regarding the plans for
the Tri-County Hospital reverted to
great sadness as our illustrious Flori-
da Agency for Health Care Adminis-
tration (FAHCA) denied the Certifi-
cate of Need (CON) to Ameris Health
Systems to build the Tri-County Hos-
pital in Chiefland. The decision of
the FAHCA does not affect just Levy
County, and they appear to be ignor-
ing the impact their decision would
have on two other counties involved
in the proposed Tri-County 'Hospital
Dixie and Gilchrist which, along
with Levy County, make up our won-
derful "Tri-County Area." Our Tri-
County Area is recognized as such
throughout the state of Florida. In
fact, two publications come to mind
when I reflect on the Tri-County Area
(which recognizes Dixie, Gilchrist,
and Levy as the Tri-County Area)

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Sometimes the simplest times are
the best. After all the shopping, deco-
rating, cooking and all that rushing
around we women do to make the
holidays special, it's nice when things
slow down.
The weekend after Christmas it re-
ally slowed down for our family. In
fact, it pretty much came to a stop as
we loaded up and went to the fam-
ily hunting camp. My family (Beau-
champ) has been hunting in the same
area and camping in the same spot
since 1941.
The camp is located not too far from
Cedar Key near Shell Mound down a
little winding rutted out-road. Travel-
ing down this old road is an experi-
ence in itself. The road winds though
sloughs, over sandy hills dotted with
scrub oaks, between small ponds
with Spanish moss-draped cypress
trees and through hammocks sprin-
kled with pines, and magnolias. A
thick understory of palmettos dresses
each side of the road in places. While
passing over part of the pathway you
bump along because of the many cy-
press knees that are starting to grow
in the wetter portions of the road.
At the end of this old lane, parts of
which were once a railroad tram used
when giant cypress were removed to
sawmills that were scattered through-
out this part of Florida, lies our camp.
Most of the year it's a quiet solitary
place, quiet except for the occasional
barking of a squirrel. But in fact the
camp came alive again just a couple
of Saturday ago when our family
consisting of most all the cousins,
three aunts and one uncle descended
upon the old camp to spend the day
visiting. Eight of the ten cousins were
on hand to eat a wonderful noon meal
and reminisce about back when we
the cousins were children. One cous-
in, Charles Beauchamp, came from
Franklin, Tennessee and it was a real
treat for us all to spend time with him.
We shared wonderful memories of
our grandparents, an aunt and uncles
who are no longer with us. Old hunt-
ing stories were told once again and
jokes played by children long, long
ago were remembered. Of the ten
cousins I am the youngest and this
summer I will turn fifty. I would ven-
ture to guess that the oldest cousin is
around 65.
Even our meal consisted of dishes
once prepared by our grandmother
"Shannie" on the same wood stove
that is still used to warm the camp


kitchen. We dined on apple tarts, dev-
iled eggs, swamp cabbage, chicken
purlieu, acre peas, wild hog cooked
over the open wood fire to name just
a few. Other family food special-
ties like my mothers jelly cake, our
daughter-in-law Lyndsay's chocolate
pound cake and a multitude of other
favorites were also enjoyed. Needless
to say after dinner we were not fit to
do anything other than sit around the
fire and visit.
All and all it was a very simple day,
no expensive gifts, no fancy china, no
decorations, other than those made
by the Lord's own hands in the native
Florida woodland. For a few hours
nearly our entire family came togeth-
er once again to be just that, a fam-
ily. To speak of our childhood spent
in and near Chiefland, to remember
the simpler times way back when we
grew up. Back then we lived in such
an innocent time and place, with free-
dom to come and go, to play when
and pretty much where we wanted
with no fear of anyone harming us.
Christmas and Thanksgiving breaks
for my brothers and I along with my
Uncle Vance's boys, Charles, Greg
and Gary were spent for the most part
down at the camp. Hunting season
weekends were fun surrounded by
laughing cousins who loved to romp
and play in the woods. Back to a time
when dog hunting was the only way
we hunted here, in those days no one
even mentioned still hunting.
The sounds of the camp back then
included the barking of now famous
and long dead old hounds tagged with
names such as "Popeye, Smokey Joe,
01' Pat, Elvis and Did-He-Bit-Ya." In
those days each and every child who
hunted was taught gun safety and how
to hunt by their fathers. Usually the
first game ever taken by young hunt-
ers was the crafty and often elusive
native squirrel. Actually when we
were children we were pretty proud
to strut back into camp wearing a big
smile with a mess of squirrels in one
hand and our 410 in the other hand.
This was a special reunion in the
camp where our long gone grand-
parents set the stage for cousins and
cousins' children as well as aunts and
an uncle to unite once again years lat-
er long after our childhoods have past
to share the true meaning of being a
family. To share memories of a sim-
pler time, of loved ones long gone and
enjoy the rustic beauty of our fam-
ily camp once again. A place where

The military newspaper "Stars and Stripes" in a report says "of the more than sixty
monuments or memorials honoring Americans and allied forces killed in the D-Day
invasion at Normandy, not a single one represents the U.S. Navy. The Naval Order of
the United States has begun its fundraising effort to collect $500,00.0 needed to build,
transport and erect what will be a 12-foot bronze monument honoring the U.S. Navy.
The organization is expected to dedicate the monument on June 6, 2008, the 64th
anniversary of the D-Day invasion. The foundation is accepting tax-free donations via
the mail at: Naval Order Foundation, P.O. Box 583, Glenview, IL 60025-0583, or by
visiting its Website at: www.navalorder.org."
Trenton's Post 91 meets on the second Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM at the
Post Home for the joint Executive Committee meeting with Auxiliary Unit 91. On the
third Thursday of the month, the Legion meets at 7:00 at the Post Home. There is a
Donation Dinner preceding the monthly meeting, beginning at 5:30. Come eat dinner
and stay for the .n li6in; The dinner is open to all in the community, so come out for
dinner, look the Post Home over, and if you are a veteran, maybe you might be
interested in becoming a part of the American Legion. Come and be a part of the
Legion Family, assisting area veterans, widows and the community. There are several
American Legion programs for the local schools and the youth in the Trenton and Bell
communities, and all that is needed is your participation in the programs. These
programs are rewarding, not only to the community, but the veterans involved as well,
so come out to help out.
With the death of former President Gerald Ford last week, President George Bush
has ordered all National flags to be placed at half-staff in honor of the former
President. The National U.S. Flag Code states "By order of the President, the flag shall
be flown at half-staff upon the death of principal figures of the United States
Government and the Governor of a State, territory, or possession, as a mark of respect
to their memory. The flag shall be flown at half-staff 30 days from the death of the
President or a former President; 10 days from the day of death of the Vice President,
the Chief Justice or a retired Chief Justice of the United States, or the Speaker of the
House of Representatives; from the day of death until interment of an Associate
Justice of the Supreme Court,'a Secretary of an executive or military department, a
former Vice President, or the Governor of a State, territory, or possession; and on the
day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress.", In following these
instructions, the flag will be at half-staff until January 26, 2007, in honor of former
President Gerald Ford.
When he entered the White House in 1974 as the 38th President, Gerald R. Ford,
Jr. became the fourth consecutive President to have served in the U.S. Navy, following
JFK, LBJ and Nixon, all WWII Naval officers.
Remember our Armed Forces each 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 in service to America. Help out whenever and however you can.
For God and Country,

4-Pets Sake
Are you up for the challenge of
2007? Maybe our future will hold
some much needed happiness and
understanding for pets and people.
As for myself, I intend to take more
time to appreciate things most of us
take for granted. Like watching a
flicker drilling a hole for its home out
of an abandoned clothes pole; it took
a'few days and a ton of determina-
tion but the completion of a perfect
home was achieved. How about the
comfort of your kitty curled up with
you and feeling content? Let's not
forget the devotion and loyalty of
your canine who constantly watches
your every move when you leave the
vehicle. His eyes are focused on the
door that you walked through and the
anticipation that he shows when the
door opens waiting for your return is
so genuine. I personally will make it
a point to improve my life by enjoy-
ing the everyday marvels that are in
it.
What preparations do you make to
introduce a'thild to a cat? According
to Dr. Lachmai, a licensed clinical
psychologist, "rub the child within a
towel and take it into the cat's room
so the cat can smell it. When the
child enters the room have it sit on
the floor to reduce its threat to the
cat." Let the child give the cat some
treats and demonstrate the correct
way to pet a cat. Do this for about
two weeks and two sessions a day for
about five to 10 minutes each session.
This procedure may seem like a long
process but the relationship that takes
place that between the child and the
cat develops early on will last for a
lifetime.
Are you looking for an antique and
collectible auction? Well, Janet and
Rick Hedrick are sponsoring one with
all the proceeds going to 4 Pets Sake.

A scene from the Jennings Lake Seventh Day Adventist Church's live drive-thru nativity that was held
on December 15, 16 and 17, 2006.

Live Nativity Draws Large Crowds


Gilchrist County and surrounding
communities were treated to a very
special FREE-Live-Drive-Thru Na-
tivity presented by your friends and
neighbors from the Jennings Lake
Seventh-Day Adventist Church. This
special event took place on the Hicks
and Robertson family farms on Fri-
day, December 15th, Saturday, De-
cember 16th, and Sunday, December
17th.
Nearly 297 cars packed with fami-
lies drove through and experienced
their sights and sounds of the live
Nativity. The cast of more that 40
Biblical characters, including live an-
imals, portrayed scenes of the Bibli-


cal Nativity. During the drive, guests
were asked to set their radio to a cer-
tain station, then they simply relaxed
and listened about the miracle birth
of Christ. The drive-thru was an
excellent way to experience the true
Christmas Story and you never had
to leave your car. Nearing the end
of the drive visitors listened to tradi-
tional Christmas songs presented by
carolers in beautiful Victorian attire.
A very special thank you goes out
to the surrounding communities for
their continued participation in our
annual event. To help the Nativity
scene come alive, we would like to
also thank several families for the

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
of an active military personnel who

christ County Journal, so that person
can be listed the next time this article

LOG CABIN QUILTERS

Log Cabin Quilters
Meeting on
December 28th
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
December 28th, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. The Log Cabin raf-


fle quilt that I half finished, should
be done in a week or so,. Half of
what we make on it will be donated
to Camp Curuth for children to go to
camp.
This next week should see every-
thing put where it belongs especially


er..
We are having lots of visitors from
all over, and we make so many won-
derful friends. We invite anyone to
share our pot luck dinner and we had
fried okra that one lady had never
eaten. We know we have food in the
south that doesn't grow in the north
and we help people to enjoy.
15 members and 3 guests were
present for a wonderful lunch with
rice, beans, okra, beets, lots of salads
and lots of pies. Doris brought her
Sour Orange Pie that was so good.

is a great example for all of us.
Log Cabin Quilters
Meeting on January 4th
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
January 4th, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. What a joyous day we had
where our northern members have
come home for awhile. Sarah Small,
Dorothy Riggs, and Elvena David-
son along with Evelyn Etheridge got
right down to quilting. It was great
to have Joy McCraney back with us,
she makes beautiful children's cloth-
ing that we sell.
It was a day for trying to get ev-
erything put away and taking down
quilts and hanging up what we have


left to sell. It takes time as we had
more this year at the Quilt Show. All
the Christmas crafts that were left
over had to be put away. When ev-
eryone helps it doesn't take long to
get it back to normal.
We are having lots of fabric and
whatever for us to use brought in.
So many are' cleaning out what they
can't use and we can.
A big load was taken to St. Fran-
cis House this week. There are many
coming in from the north, they need
clothing and cover for warmth. This
has been a project for us for two
years, we took lots of stocking caps
in also.

Gilchrist County AARP
Chapter News
The Gilchrist County AARP.Chap-
ter will meet in the Community
Center, 214 SE 3rd Ave., in.Trenton
at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, January
16th, 2007.
President Nancy Padgett had


planned a very interesting-program
with Adelia Vachon, AARP District
Coordinator for Advocacy, as the
guest speaker.
This, being the first meeting fol-
lowing a suggestion last year that the
lunch menu be designated, the choice
for this meeting is soup and sand-
wiches. Just choose one or the other
and there will be plenty of variety to
go around. Soup will be handled best
in a crock pot that can be plugged in
at the center.
We hope to attract more new mem-
bers this year and with so many
people moving into the county it
would be a friendly gesture to in-
vite newcomers in our age group to
our meetings. They do not have to
be current members of the national
AARP but we can encourage them to
join. When it comes to voting local,
state and nationally we have a strong'
showing and, although it sounds self-
ish, we know how to vote for pro-
grams that most affect us.
We offer have fun programs and
know how to have a good time. All
work and no play is not our motto.
I look forward to seeing you at the
meeting.
Sincere thanks to John and Cindy
Ayers and staff for giving us the op-
portunity to communicate with our
members through the Journal each
month.

Crime Prevention
How You Can Stay Safe
Come join the Fanning Springs
Chamber of Commerce as they invite
everyone to attend their next meeting
at the Homestead Restaurant in Fan-
ning Springs on Wednesday, January
17th at 8:00 a.m. Come share a cup
of coffee and learn how to protect
yourself, home and business from the
rising threat of crime, which is very
prevalent in our society today.
Guest Speaker Brian McNeil of
Florida Crime Prevention will cover
many topics in the safety seminar
such as: What targets you as a poten-
tial victim? When is a woman most
vulnerable? What defensive weapons
are recommended by law enforce-
ment agencies nationwide? What
you should do prior to and during a
purse snatching? Is a stun gun a good
defensive weapon? What is Mace?
How effective is it? What time of day
do most burglaries occur? What steps
can you take to make a burglar avoid
your home?
Their primary mission is to achieve
a heightened awareness, by the pub-
lic, of the current threat facing every-
one in today's society. We will help
others to recognize potential danger
when it exists, teach strategies for
avoidance and introduce non-lethal
techniques for defense and survival.
By adopting a sensible anti-crime

The Coppage
Brothers From Bell's To
Be Sworn In At A
Ceremony On
January 12th
Joining the military service is a
pretty big step in an individual's life.
Joining with a sibling is even better.
And, being sworn in by a flag-staff
officer is a very big deal. This Fri-
day, January 12, 2007, Rear Admiral
Philman, USN, will be at the Trenton
Courthouse at 2:30 p.m. to swear in
the Coppage brothers of Bell to the
United States Navy.
The Bell High School JROTC pro-
gram will be on hand for this cere-
mony. An opportunity like this does
not often present itself so if you are
able to break away from your activi-
ties, you can witness a very'special
event in these two young men's lives.
I congratulate them for serving and
the admiral for making himself avail-
able to do this.

High Springs Celebrates
Florida Arbor Day
The City of High Springs Tree
Board and High Springs Farmers'
Market will be celebrating Florida
Arbor Day on Thursday and Friday,
January 18th and 19th, 2007. January
is the perfect time to consider plant-
ing trees since the weather provides
a great environment with the lowest
risk. "It's cooler, the trees are dor-
mant and there's plenty of rainfall,"
says Joanne Tremblay, Vice Chair of
the Tree Board.
To kick off the celebration, the Tree
Board has partnered with the High
Springs Farmers' Market to provide
educational materials to the public
at the market on Thursday, January
18th, during the farmers market's Ar-
bor Day Celebration and Tree Sale to
be held during normal market hours
from 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. These
materials will provide information
on how to properly plant trees, which


trees grow well in North Florida, how
to identify trees and which diseases
affect trees.
Wendy Wilber, Environmental
Horticulturalist with the Alachua
County Extension Office will be on
hand to provide horticulture help to
local residents.
Also on Thursday, Troy Simpson,
of Simpson's Landscaping and Tree
Service in Alachua, will lead a tree
identification walk around through
James Paul Park beginning at 2:30
p.m. He will have a limited num-
ber of tree identification booklets to
distribute, and will show the group
some of the best native trees to plant
in north Florida yards.
Florida's official Arbor Day cel-
ebration is on Friday, January 19,
2007. The High Springs Tree Board
has arranged for a ceremonial tree
planting at the city's Walter Howard
Park at 12:00 p.m. This one-third
acre neighborhood park is .located
at the corner of NW 13th Street and
NW 2nd Avenue, just north of the
downtown area.
As part of future planning and in
anticipation of the National Arbor
Day Celebration which is held in
April, the Tree Board is organizing
a search to identify 'Champion trees'
within the community. Citizens who
believe they have the largest speci-
men of an individual species in their
yard or know of such a species on
public property may nominate the
tree for consideration. Nomination
forms will be available at City Hall,
the Farmer's Market and the Library.
The results will be identified on a
map with listing of the locations of
the winners. On National Arbor Day,
in April, the Tree Board will host a
walking tour of the winners. Sue
Weller, Chair of the Tree Board,
hopes the citizens of High Springs
will participate in the events and take
the time to plant a tree stating, "Imag-
ine how different our lives would be .
if we didn't have trees. They provide
beauty, shade, and habitat for many
animals."
The City of High Springs Tree
Board is an advisory board to the
City Commission and creates public
awareness of the benefits of plant-
ing trees which it hopes to accom-
plish through the celebration of both
Florida's Arbor Day and the National
Arbor Day. The Tree Board holds
regular meetings on the 2nd Wednes-
day of each month. For more infor-
mation about the High Springs Tree
Board, please call City Hall at (386)
454-1416.
The High Springs Farmers' Market
is open every Thtirsday from 2:00
p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is located in


.lames Paul Park in downtown High
Springs. Access and parking is avail-
able from Main Street at NW 2nd Av-
enue and from NW 1st Avenue (Hwy
27) at City Hall, located at 110 NW
1st Avenue. The market features lo-
cally produced fresh fruits and veg-
etables, plants, trees, shrubs, flowers,


jams, jellies, baked goods and many,
other agricultural products.
The High Springs Fanpers' Market
is a year-round growers' market sup-
porting local agriculture, education,
the arts and businesses and is pro-
duced by the City of High Springs.

Trees For Planting In
Florida
Ten free flowering trees will be
given to each person from Florida
who joins The National Arbor Day

The free trees are part of the non-
profit Foundation's Trees for America
campaign.
The ten trees are two White Flow-
ering Dogwoods, two Flowering
Crab-apples, two Washington Haw-
thorne, two American Redbuds, and
two Golden Rain Trees.
"These compact trees were select-
ed for planting in large or small spac-
es," John Rosenow, the Foundation's
president, said. "'They will give your
home in Florida the beauty of lovely
pink, white, and yellow flowers, and
also provide winter berries and nest-
ing sites for songbirds.
The trees will be shipped postpaid
at the right time for planting between
February 1st and May 31st, with en-


closed planting instructions. The six
to twelve inch trees are guaranteed to
grow or they will be replaced free of
charge.
Members also receive a subscrip-
tion to the Foundation's bimonthly
publication, Arbor Day, and The Tree
Book with information about tree
planting and care.
To become a member of the Foun-
dation and to receive the free trees,

bor Day Foundation, 100 Arbor Ave-
nue, Nebraska City, Nebraska 68410,

Two neighbors appeared in court,
each woman accusing the other of
causing trouble in their building.
"Let's get to the evidence," the judge
said in an effort to end their bicker-
ing. "I'll hear the oldest woman
first." The case was dismissed for
lack of testimony.

Character Council
Christmas Parade News
Well, it stuck!! The joy of Christ-
mas, even though several weeks be-
hind us, is still in our hearts, especial-
ly the hearts of young children, and
those who are young at heart.
Sometimes it takes a while for
things to sink in, but for those chil-
dren and adults who put forth a big
effort, it made the "Joy of Christmas"
Character Council float for the Bell
Christmas parade a bright and hap-
py occasion. And they are the ones
who made a memory for themselves.
"Joy" paper signs were all over each
side of the float, with red, green and
black music notes pinned to the black
and white checkered drape, which
covered bales of hay, and all trimmed
with red and gold garlands. In the
center of the float there was a special-
ly built sign which read, "Character
Kids Love the Joy of Christmas."
In the center of the group of chil-
dren stood "Cari K. Tree," the Coun-
cil's mascot. Each child, dressed in
black pants, white shirts and red and
white "Santa" hat, truly made a state-
ment, that they were expressing joy
to all the onlookers of the parade, as
they smiled and waved.
The Character Council of Gilchrist
County wishes to extend heart-felt
thanks in appreciation for all the par-
ents who made the time so special for
the children who participated. Most
of the parents walked along side and
handed out candy to the on-lookers.
For demonstrating a certain character
quality in school, each student who
rode on the float had been awarded
the title of "Citizen of the Month" in
each respective class at school and
was given the honor of participating.
These youngsters truly are future
leaders in our community, for they
are showing each of us that Gilchrist
County has citizens, even the young,
who are filled with joy and that we
are a county of character because we
care.


High Springs Farmers'
Market Sponsors New
Monthly Feature "Fun
With Fiber"
The High Springs Farmers Mar-
ket is starting a new monthly series,
"Fiber Fun" with LynnAnn Lassen.
LynnAnn has become a regular part
of the weekly market with your spin-
dling yam demonstrations. This new
series will feature monthly demon-
strations of fiber art techniques. The
first installment, on Thursday, Janu-
ary 25th, during market hours, will
celebrate the Joy of Socks, just in
time for Winter. Socks were among
the earliest known knitted garments.
Hand-knit socks' appeal includes
portability and the relatively short
time it takes to knit them. LynnAnn
will demonstrate three methods of
sock knitting and the colorful, ap-
pealing results.
The High Springs Farmers' Market
is open every Thursday from 2:00
p.m. to 6:00 p.m. and is located in
James Paul Park in downtown High
Springs. Access and parking is avail-
able from Main Street at NW 2nd Av-
enue and from NW 1st Avenue (Hwy
27) at City Hall, located at 110 NW
1st Avenue. The-market features lo-
cally produced fresh fruits and veg-
etables, plants, trees, shrubs, flowers,
jams, jellies, baked goods and many
other agricultural products.
The High Springs Farmers' Market
is a year-round growers' market sup-
porting local agriculture, education,
the arts and businesses and is pro-
duced by the City of High Springs.

Bits And Pieces From
The Joyful Heart
Quilters And Crafters
Of North Gilchrist
County .
Well sir, here it is.. a new year,
2007. I know you're saying the very
sane thing we all are. Where does the
time go? I can't believe that Christ-
mas has come and gone. Of course,
there are a few, like me, who haven't
even thought about de-decorating but
for the most part all signs of Christ-


mas are gone except for the extra
pounds we put on from all the good-
ies we ate. Who knows, maybe this
year I'll get my tree down but there's
no guarantee, mind you. I enjoy it so
much that if I thought it wouldn't get
so dusty I might just leave it up but I
guess enough is enough.
The weather has been strange in-
deed. Almost everyone is reporting
trees, shrubs, and flowers, tricked by
a false spring, budding and bloom-
ing. A friend of mine said her little
peach tree is in full bloom and even is
snorting a tiny peach. I myself, have


seen several red buds in bloom and
the confederate roses are all getting
new leaves. You know we are still
in for some bitter cold temperatures
through at least March. I hope these
spurts of rain and warm weather don't
cost us a colorful spring. I do appre-
ciate the much needed rain though.
It was one of those balmy days
on Wednesday, January 3rd, that 13
Joyful Hearts met to start off the
new year. Lots of folks were either
sick, entertaining company or out of
town.
Those that were there enjoyed one
another .company, set up the calen-
dar for 2007. updated the membership
list, made suggestions for housekeep-
ing tasks and the like and of course
worked on projects in progress.
Diana Lynn finished her square of
the month quilt that she is entering in
the state fair. Elaine Nemeth, Cathy
Strom, and Ann Mangone quilted on
the club quilt along with Pat Luka.
Alice Binns, Betty Hicks, Mary
Lou Ryber, Jackie Moore, and Bon-
nie Edwards stuck with their Swedish

Weaving and Matty Turner continued
crocheting while Marvine Deer tack-
led some sewing.
Everyone chatted about Christmas,
family moments shared, gifts and of
course all the wonderful food, candy,
and cookies eaten. Naturally, every-
one talked of New Years resolutions.
No, I don't do that anymore or yes,
and I'm sticking to them this time.
Needless to say everyone is looking
forward to a healthier, less stressful,
more prosperous new year.
Since we throw the word prosper-
ous around without much thought, I
decided to see what my good friend
Mr. Webster had to say about it. My
dictionary, and I quote, said, to pros-
per 1: to succeed in an enterprise
or activity: esp : to achieve economic
success 2: to become strong and
flourishing: vt: to cause to succeed or
thrive.
The word prosperous 1: Auspi-
cious, favorable 2a: marked by suc-
cess or economic well-being b: en-
joying vigorous and healthy growth:
flourishing.
Flourishing in all areas of our lives
is what we all want for our family
and friends as well as ourselves. And
this is what God wants for us. Our
purpose in life is not to live a life of
misery and sorrow. Although the
road often may be rough and rocky
and filled with pot holes, His hand
will guide us safely through to the
other side if only we will let Him.
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, January 17th, at 9:00
a.m. We meet at the North Gilchrist
Fire Department building on CR 138.
It's between 47 and 129. We'd love
to have you visit, join us, and just sit
a spell.'Bring your lunch and friend-
ship.
'Til next time.

(Continued From Page Two)
there is still to this day a sack swing
hanging in wait for young hands to
grab a hold and swing through the
air. You might not think a sack swing
is important but to our family it is a
symbol of endurance and tradition.
Because at one time or another all
ten cousins as well as nearly all their
children have taken flight on that old
moss-stuffed sack swing. Five gen-
erations of our family have swung
or enjoyed watching children swing
from the same tree that grows out the
side of the embankment which is part
of the ancient railroad tram, the same
tram on which the old camp road is
built.
Jbawdsaye/ ad

9 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup butter
3/4 cup sliced fresh carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cups green onions, sliced in
half inch pieces
2 cups shredded cabbage
1-1/2 cups cubed potatoes


1 pound smoked link sausage,
browned in frying pan and sliced
1 cup cooked chicken, deboned and
chopped
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley,
optional
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
1/2 teapsoon marjoram
Salt and pepper to taste
Stew a chicken for an hour and a
half in enough water to cover com-
pletly to make the broth for this
recipe. When stewing chicken I add
a chicken bouillon cube, about half
cup of celery, one clove of chopped
garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Once
chicken is done, the longer you stew
it the more flavor your broth will
have. Pick chicken meat off bones
and reserve 1 cup of meat for soup
and save remaining meat for a casse-
role or chicken salad.
In a cast iron frying pan melt but-
ter and add celery arid carrots stir-
ring until it becomes just barely
tender. Then add onions and cook a
few more minutes, add the vegetable
mixture to soup pot which contains
chicken stock. Add potatoes and cook
at a slow boil for about 10 minutes.
Add raw cabbage and cook about 10


minutes. Add sausage, chicken meat,
parsley and seasonings. Stir, check
seasoning again and simmer for about
15 minutes or so and serve.

Chiefland, Cross City, Steinhatchee,
Old Town, Suwannee, Trenton, and
Williston. The other Tri-County Area
publication is the Town & Country
GUIDE for Gilchrist, Levy & Dixie
Counties.
It is time for the citizens of the
beautiful Tri-County Area to rise to
the next level and let our voices be
heard. The FAHCA's comment that
the "need for the proposed project
is not demonstrated" is just not true.
Though I do not portend to extol the
knowledge of a statistician or demog-
rapher, I do know from experience
and research that there are instances
where an anomaly can occur and I
believe this circumstance to be just
that an anomaly, as our Tri-County
Area God's country is growing.
Not being privy to the score card used
by FAHCA in their decision making,

it does not make sense that out of
five criteria mentioned in journalist,
Karen Voyles', article (The Gaines-
ville Sun, December 16, 2006) only
one was lacking the "anomaly" that
"the three counties the hospital was
targeted to serve Levy, Dixie and
Gilchrist are not projected to grow
as fast as the rest of the state or re-
gion." Chiefland is in Levy County,
and yes, there is a hospital in Willis-
ton. However, this is not just about
Chiefland or Williston, but about all
citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy
County the same citizens who pa-
tronize our businesses and who have
overwhelmingly expressed their de-
sire for a hospital in the Tri-County
Area.'
My husband and I have been
blessed to have lived in Levy County
for 20 years and are employed in the
education sector. We have four sons
- two who have graduated from Levy
County schools and two more com-
ing through the ranks. They have
played sports and yes, they have been
injured which has required many
trips to Gainesville. Though good-
spirited rivalry does exist within our
Tri-County Area when it comes to


sporting events, I believe I can speak
for everyone that we become as one
when it comes to the health and well-
being of our citizens from the very
young to the elderly.
My sister has served as an Occu-
pational Therapist in the Tri-County
Area for more than 15 years, having
worked in two of the three school dis-
tricts as well as the following health
care facilities Cross City Rehabili-
tation and Health Center, Tri-County
Nursing Home, Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation Center, and Williston
Rehabilitation and Nursing Cen-
ter. The residents of these facilities
are usually transferred to hospitals
in Gainesville (with the exception
of some residents in Williston) for
medical care beyond the capability
of their nursing home/center. The
granting of a CON to build the Tri-
County Hospital would alleviate the
emotional and physical stress our
nursing home population must en-
dure when they are forced to travel
extended distances for their medical
care. Furthermore, it would be to the
greater good for family members and
friends who know the importance of
frequent visitation. Many wish to


visit daily but find they are restricted
due to their own age and limitations.
There truly is no greater therapy than
to have family members and friends
involved in the recovery and treat-
ment process. Is there any one in
the Tri-County Area who can say
they and their family have not been
touched by the emotional distress of
having a sick, injured, or maimed
loved one, and trying to get them to
the hospital as quickly as possible? I
think not.
Fellow citizens we must be ready,
in season and out of season for what
life bestows on us. We must count
the cost, plan ahead, and begin lay-
ing a solid foundation upon which to
build for the future of our children.
We must insure that the infrastruc-
ture of our county is solid and strong.
Failure to do so will leave our Tri-
County Area open to chaos. As the
past has revealed and the present has
shown, the planning process is a long
one, and we must be ready. Let us
not fail to remember the recent an-
nouncement of Progress Energy
Florida who is moving forward with
their plans for a nuclear plant in Levy
County. Would it.not be a good idea
to be ready for that event though
ten years down the road to prepare
for the influx of residents should this
initiative move forward? It appears
Progress Energy has established their
short and long term plan (Reference
The Gainesville Sun, December 13,
2006, page 1). As citizens, it is our
obligation to stay dutifully informed
of the strategic plans in our respec-
tive counties for the short and long
term future of the Tri-County Area.
That being said, it is time to rally
and, gently speaking, fight back. If
the receipt of 5,560 letters and the
proven fiscal soundness of Ameris
Health Systems is not enough for
FAHCA, then we have no choice but
to take it to the next level. How many
of you remember when we gathered
together that day in November, 2003,
when the Council of 100 held its last
public hearing to explore the feasibil-
ity of sending our water flowing to
south Florida to support its extensive
growth? Do yourememberhowmany
people packed the Chiefland High
School Auditorium and Gymnasium
that evening to express their concern
and voice their opinion? More than
2,500 arrived by cars and buses that
evening from the Tri-County Area
as well as surrounding counties fill-
ing the auditorium and gymnasium to
overflowing to express their opinion
before our elected officials. The out-
come? The people spoke, and their
voice was heard in Tallahassee.
Dixie County Commissioner,
Buddy Lamb's statement paves the
way for our next step "When a sys-
tem put in place to protect citizens
fails them so miserably, it is time to
change the system" (The Gainesville
Sun, December 16, 2006). The Tri-
County Area may not have a beau-
tiful performing arts center, boast a
significant tax base to support pro-
gram initiatives available to our larg-
er counties, or have the distinction
of being one of the wealthiest coun-
ties in Florida, but we are tax paying
citizens of this great state with a right
for our voices to be heard. There is
something, however, that Dixie, Gil-
christ, and Levy County do have in
common facilities that are capable
of holding large crowds where our
citizenry can meet, e.g., high school
football stadiums. It is time to resur-
rect the "town hall" meeting for our
voices to be heard and to extend a
cordial invitation to the members of
FAHCA, as well as our legislative li-
aisons to express our outrage.
Frankly, without a vision, the peo-
ple perish. Ameris Health Systems -
along with supporters from all walks
of life within our area have had a
vision for many years to see a hos-
pital in the Tri-County Area come to
fruition. Many hours of labor, com-
mitment, and dedication has gone
into this endeavor. On behalf of the
citizens of Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy
County, I extend my sincere apprecia-,
tion to Frank Schupp, Ameris Health
Systems whose tireless efforts to
bring a hospital to the Tri-County.
Area have not gone unnoticed. With
this, for one moment, our Tri-County
Area must come together (citizens,
county commissions, city commis-
sions, and city leaders) to lend our
support and sacrificially stand behind
Ameris Health Systems in their at-
tempt to appeal,the decision of the
FAHCA. According to Mr. Schupp's
comment in the Chiefland Citizen,
December 21, 2006, the FAHCA's
report on the CON will be published
in the Florida Administrative Journal
on or about December 29, 2006, at
which time Ameris Health Systems
