Trenton man is killed Saturday

night on CR 307

By Carrie A. Mizell
A wife and five young children
were left behind of a 37-year-old
Trenton man who died in an auto-
mobile accident on CR 307 Saturday\
With Easter Sunday looming, Wil-:
liam S. Lovelace III was in the midst
of smoking hams on Saturday night
when he realized he needed some-
thing from the grocery store. One
ham would serve his family and the
other ham would be a generous gift
for his neighbors..
Lovelace jumped in his family's
1999 GMC Suburban just before 10
p.m. anticipating getting to Hitch-'
cock's Foodway just before the doors
were closed for the night.
While .traveling southbound on
CR 307, Lovelace's vehicle traveled
across the northbound lane of CR
307, for unknown reasons, and off
the roadway onto the east shoulder of
the road, according to a Florida High-
way Patrol accident report. Loveless
attempted to steer the vehicle back to
the left, but overcorrected causing the
vehicle to rotate in a counterclock-
wise manner and travel off the road-
way again and onto the east shoulder.
The vehicle then .became airborne,
traveling through the ditch before
striking large oak tree with its right

directed rearward before coming to
a final rest facing in a southeasterly
direction on the east shoulder of CR
Lovelace was pronounced dead at
the scene of the accident. -
On Monday. family members
gathered at the home of William and
Kerrianne Lovelace to share stories,.
while providing tearful support to
one another.

Baptist Church, "Woodd3" as he was
known to close friends' and family

Floridians to learn
about the dangers of
wildfire during Wildfire
Awareness Week
Florida Agriculture and Consum-
er Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson today announced that April
8th -14th is Wildfire Awareness
Week. The second week of April
has been designated as Wildfire
Awareness Week in recognition of
Florida's devastating 1998 wildfire
season, when more than half a mil-
lion acres burned and 337 homes
and other structures were damaged
or destroyed by wildfires statewide.
"March, April and May are usu-
ally the most active months of
Florida's year round wildfire sea-
son, and coupled with this year's
current drought situation, there is a
very good chance that we will see

Chris Rogers' Creativity is identified

as Personality Character Trait for

the month of April

By Geneva Corwell
Creativity, the opposite of which is,
"underachievement." is approaching
a need, a:task, or an idea front a new
perspective Cream tin is the quality
of original thinking and the ability to
visualize. Louis Pasteur once said,
"Chance favors the prepared mind."'
So with creativity, a person is in-
volved with viewing a particular situ-
ation in light of new data. Creati\ it
also requires preparing the mind with
the right questions. By asking the
right questions, the right answers \\ ill
come forth.
There are several key concepts in
understanding creativity. By study-
ing the following, one can then know
that creativity is within reach., Cre-
ativity requires positive and concep-
tual thinking, the broadening of one's
perspective, gleaning from conven-
tional wisdom while knowing when
to move beyond it and, lastly,.seeking
to develop interests outside of one's
comfort zone. In other words, "think-
ing outside the box" promotes cre-
ativity. In essence, creativity is bring-
ing a fresh idea to an old problem.
Ponder this: In 1977, Ken Olson,
the next few months," Bronson said.
The Department of Agriculture's
Division of Forestry (DOF) will con-
duct a Fire Weather Education Cam-
paign during Wildfire Awareness
Week in order to educate people about
the effect weather can have on fire be-
havior. At the heart of the campaign
will be a contest where TV, online
newspaper viewers and radio listen-
ers are eligible-to win a Fire Danger
Weather Kit. Participants become
eligible to win by correctly answering
questions provided by the DOF each
day to meteorologists on participating
TV news programs, online newspa-
pers and participating radio stations.
Fire Weather Danger Kits contain
thermometers, rain gauges and infor-
mational brochures that can help fami-
lies understandhow changes inFlorida
weather can increase wildfire danger.
"I hope that all of our citizens will
participate in our Fire Weather Edu-
cation Campaign on their local TV

Chris Rogers
president, chairman and founder of
Digital Equipment Corporation, said,
"There is no reason anyone would
want a computer in their home." Bill
Gates thought outside the box, didn't
he? And has made a ton of money
since, as has founders of Hewlett-
Packard, Dell, Macintosh, etc. And
they all thought outside the box.
What creativity!!!
For the month of April the Char-

weather program, online newspaper
or radio station," said Bronson. "Giv-
en the situation across-the state, it is
a critical time for people to educate.
themselves about wildfire dangers."
Since January 1st, 2007, 1,297
wildfires have burned 75,174 acres
in Florida. Most of these fires were
caused by human- carelessness.

acter Council is featuring as its "per-
sonality" Mr. Chris Rogers. Chris, a
native of Gilchrist County, graduated
from Trenton High School in 1992.
'He is' the 'son of Bill Rogets. (His
mother. Joanie. passed a\%%a in 1998.)
Not long after graduation, for nearly
five sears. Chris worked for B & J
Automotive, but in 1997 became an
employee with the Gilchrist County
Journal. At the newspaper. Chris has
the distinguished honor of being the
Advertising and Design Consultant..
In approaching Mr. Rogers for this
particular assignment,, this author
found it such a pri\ ilege to speak
\\th this young man of distinction.
Chris believes, with all his heart, that
as a Chnrstian. it is his duty to others
to bring them joy and some light in
what might be dismal situations. He
uses his gift of creativity by making
every attempt he can in understand-
ing others as being special creations
of God.
Chris believes that being stagnant
stifles creativity, so he tries to improve
himself every day.He works diligent-
ly to make others happy although he
has found that changing a look about
something will have its challenges.
But once those challenges are met,
then the people he tries to please, will
rejoice. He thinks that there.are cir-
cumstances in life which do not al-
low for change, such as God's word
and the truth of that word; but, he also
believes, when a different approach
is used, many people can be reached.
The motto which Chris has made up
for himself is, "It is my goal in life to
be neither too deep nor too shallow."
It's a simple approach at being able to
relate to others, on their level.
Mr. Chris Rogers is another great
citizen of our wonderful county who
proves daily that moral character has
reachable goals; for it's people like
Chris who demonstrate that charac-
ter is something you just don't talk
about, it's something you do, af-
firming, once again, that we live in
a county of character, because our
county cares.

Attorney General
and Florida School
announce new
Coordinated effort will work to
combat cybercrime, educate stu-
dents and parents
Attorney General Bill McCollum
and Bill Montford, Chief Executive
Officer of the Florida Association
of District School Superintendents,
today announced a new partnership
to address the threat of cybercrime
against children. Attorney General
McCollum and the superintendents
will be building a cooperative ap-
proach to reach students and parents
throughout the state to educate them
on safe practices of internet use.
"Internet predators are able in-
filtrate our homes and exploit our
children through our home com-
puters with one click of a button,"
said Attorney General McCollum.
"Working with the Superintendents
Association, we will create a coordi-
nated statewide effort in order to give
children the skills needed to be safer
while online."
Speaking at the Association's
2007 Leadership Conference, Attor-
ney General McCollum noted that
as technology advances, so do new
threats to Florida's children. As a
result, he encouraged his audience
to be diligently aware of the online
dangers confronting students and
families. He stressed to the superin-
teridents that the internet has become
the weapon of choice for people who
prey on children because it is easy for
them to gain access to their victims
while remaining faceless.
"I am excited about the opportu-
nity to work with the Attorney Gen-
eral as we develop this, program to
target safe internet use by our stu-
dents throughout the state," said Bill
Montford, Chief Executive Officer
of the Florida Association of District

Life on the road project manager reflects on storms past

and present

By Wes Franklin
Daily News Staff Writer
Reprinted with permission from the
Neosho Daily News
In two weeks, Wayne Bussard's
daughter, Sarah, turns sweet 16.
And he's going to make darn sure
he's there for it--even when it means
taking a short break from overseeing
debris cleanup in Neosho, Missouri
and.flying home to Trenton.
But he'll be back.
Bussard is senior project manager
for Wood .Resource Recovery, the
Gainesville-based contractor hired by
the city of Neosho to remove seas of
tree debris left behind after January's
ice storm.
And they've got the manpower and
equipment to do it. Bussard brought
to Neosho a 30-man crew. Some
drove their own vehicles, some rode
along in trucks pulling the equipment
trailers and some were even flown
in. But they all ended up in Neosho.
January 24thwas the arrival date for
Their heaviest tools of trade consist
of eight self-loading knuckleboom
trucks, eight bucket trucks, excava-
tors, front-end loaders and a huge
grinder that turns the removed tree
limbs and branches into the moun-
tains of mulch now seen on Howard
Bush Drive.
For Bussard and most of his crew,
cleaning up after storms is old hat.
From October 20th to December
20th, they were in Buffalo, New
York, doing basically the same thing
they're now doing in Neosho--albeit
on a much grander scale-following
that city's ice storm. Before then,
they stayed busy mopping up hur-
ricane damage in Florida, Texas,
and Louisiana. They were home
for Christmas andNew Year. Now
they're in Neosho.
"This is what we do," Bussaid said
as he sat in his truck for a few min-
utes Thursday observing the mulch-
ing work. "We travel around and do
cleanup here and there. All of our
equipment is set up to do that kind of
work. We have the right equipment
for the job so..."
Bussard said he's usually on the
road up to 11 months out of the year.
Like most of his men, he stays in
contact with his family via cellular
phone. Waiting for him back home
are his wife Holly, 12-year-old son
Tyler and daughter, Sarah, who is
about to turn 16.' -. ;
Although he's sure the clean-up
wornliin Neosho .will ,still be ongo4,
ing at that time, Bussard said he's not
missing his daughter's birthday-es-
pecially her all-too-important 16th.
"That's something you probably
don't want to miss!" he laughed.
Bussard will fly back to Neosho af-
ter the birthday and see to finishing
up the job. Some of his crew have
already rotated out and are about to
come back to work in the Flowerbox
For the past few weeks, Bussard's
crew have lived at Neosho's Best
Western Big Spring Inn, bunked up
two to a room (except for the senior
employes, who are allowed the luxu-
ry of a private abode).
Most of the men's laundry is
washed at area laundromats,' though
Bussard pays one of the housekeep-
ing staff at the hotel to do his.
The men eat out three times a day
on a $30 per diem allowance, mainly

at fast-food joints. Personally, Bus-
sard said he's a steak-and-salad kind
of guy. In fact, it's the basis of his
only real complaint about Neosho.
"There's nowhere in this town to
get a steak!" he grumbled good-na-
turedly ..
"There ain't a good restaurant here
for that. It might be a good invest-
ment for somebody."
About 90 percent of Bussard's
crew have their paychecks direct de-
posited into their bank accounts to.

well as themselves \hen the\ need
some extra cash. ,Eertehing else is
pro\ ided for,
"Life on the road you know," Bus-
sard said. "The only thing you can't
get on the road is a home-cooked
But Bussard is used to that sort of
life (before coming to his present job
seveh years ago, he was a traveling
cattle hauler) and so are many of his
,men.. That doesn't mean it doesn't
get difficult, however, at times. Ac-

cording to Bussard, there's always a
question of how long new employees
on far-away, out-of-state jobs are go-
ing to last. Some do. Others don't..
"It's hard, but it's what we do;"
he said. "I have a wife and a young
family, a lot of my gu\s ha'e wives
and young families. The wives are
understanding. but it leaves them
\\ith a lot to do on their own as far
as having to take care of the house.
and the young'uns and the soccer,
and baseball and basketball, and the
t. pical things \\ i es do "
While Bussard said the paN is good-
there's an extra bonus for working g
out-of-state jobs--the time away from
home for some married gu s is too
much to take.
"If had all single guys I'd be a
\\hole lot better off!" he laughed.
"The money\ isgood, butitalldepends
on what kind of lifestyle you live. If
you're real involved \ ith what you
got going on around your house you
can't do this. I've had a lot of guys
come out and be with me a long time.
I've had a lot of guys come out and

stay a day or two. They realize they
can't stay a%\ a3 from their families or:
they can't stay. away from whatever
they have going on back at home."
Bussard said the \worst natural di-.
sasters he cleans up after are al\\ aj s
the hurricanes. He said when the
crew arrived in Hardui Counrs. Tex-
as, just north of Beaumont, after Hur-'
ricane Rita's mess, there wasn't an-y
power on an.\vhere in that corner of
the state. For two months, he and his
workers lived out of travel trailers
and campers.
Ice storms don't carr nearly the
devastation as other storms, he said,
because there usually isn't any struc-
tural damage. Bussard should kno\w-

would come into his office one
day and catch up on some typ-

What is it that makes equity invest-
ing such a powerful tool for increas-
ing wealth? Edgar Lawrence Smith
described the reason back in 1924
when he wrote a.slim little book ti-
tled "Common Stock as Long Term
Investments." Legendary economist
John Maynard Keynes, in reviewing
the book, was quick to delineate its
most important point.
Keynes wrote, "Well-managed
companies generally do not distrib-
ute to shareholders the whole of their
earned profits. In good years, if not.
in all years, they retain a part of their
profits and put them back in the busi-
ness. Thus, there is an element of
compound interest operating in favor
of a sound industrial investment.".
It is that simple. Now let me show
you exactly how you can put the
above words into practice using as an
investment candidate a company that
has completely reinvested itself over
the past ten years, one that has never
been discussed here before.
Monsanto produces seeds for large-
acre crops like corn, cotton, and oil-
seeds (soybeans and canola), as well

Now a d 7Aie

By Carrie A. Mizell

For many people the incredible ed-
ible egg is synonymous with Easter.
Sadly, I have never been one of
those people. My aversion to dairy
foods and eggs sprung up early. My
brother J. and I stayed at Mama Faye
Layfield's house from the time we
were 15 months old until we entered
kindergarten. We were not alone, my
good friends Jarrett Thomas, Clinton
Porter Smith and Tiffany Ozment
also stayed at Mama Faye's.
From day one, Tiffany Ozment let it
be known that she was highly allergic
to dairy food. So everyday at lunch
she wouldfeast on peanut butter and
jelly sandwiches and cherry Kool-
Aid, while the rest of.us watched,
choking down our egg salad sand-
wiches and low fat milk. Wouldn't
you just know that by the age of 4,
I too had developed a mysterious al-
lergy to dairy foods and eggs.
God has such a sense of humor!
Fast forward 20 years, and I'm mar-
ried to a fourth generation poultry
farmer. Let me tell you those Mizells
are poultry people. Adam says go fig-
ure that the only food he can get for
free I don't eat. My father-in-law was

also bewildered by my no dairy an-
nouncement early on. I assured him
that I do eat eggs...just only in cake.
Hoping to impress my in-laws at the
family Easter party on Sunday, I du-
tifully boiled eggs for the holiday. A
dozen were dipped into the rainbow
colored Easter egg dye for hunting,
while another dozen were shelled for
deviled eggs. You know Cindy Jo is
my momma, so I couldn't just make
plain old deviled eggs, I had to kick it
up by making shrimp stuffed deviled
eggs. I tried rather unsuccessfully to
incorporate the Ayers family's love
of seafood with poultry.. I chopped
the shrimp up very fine with the egg
and had those shrimp tails sticking up
out of the deviled eggs on a lovely
egg tray.
I was feeling pretty good about it
until we made it to the party.
It was a hoot! I don't think the ma-
jority of the family had ever seen
such as that because they just kept
circling the plate and sniffing the,
eggs. I got the biggest kick out of it.
Maybe next Easter I will attempt a
seafood quiche.

We would like to thank' Mary

that she has given 4 Pets Sake. Please
accept our apology for not including
your name on our thank you list.
Because our pets require extra
time and care we can no longer take
in anymore pets until further notice.

others have been badly abused. Some

when their pet parent passed away.
After two years of advertising them
for adoption we realized that due to

bled by a depressed stock price and
mounting opposition to its contro-
versial genetically modified crops,
would split off its agribusiness unit
or be acquired by a larger company.
Yet, Pharmacia never had any in-
terest in crops. It bought Monsanto
largely for Monsanto's G.D. Searle
drug division, whose products in-
cluded Celebrex. Pharmacia itself
was subsequently sold to Pfizer in
2003 for $60 billion. Meanwhile, in
2002, Pharmacia spun off its Mon-
santo division to current shareholders-
after taking 15 percent of the com-
pany to public.
So how is Monsanto doing today?
For its second quarter of FY 2007
ended March 31, Monsanto reported
record net sales of $2.6 billion, a
number that was 19 percent higher
than the same period a year ago. Net
sales for the first half of the year were
a record $4.2 billion, a number that
was 15 percent higher than the same
period a year ago.
Earnings for .the second quarter
were 23 percent higher at 98 cents per
share, while for the first six months
earnings were 27 percent higher
at $1.14 per share when compared'
to the same period a. year ago. Net
cash provided by operating activities
was $520. million during the past six
months, compared with $331 million
for the same period in 2006, while
the free cash flow was $290 million,
as compared to $135 million a year
As a result, the company's earnings

Margaret Mitchell

OK, OK, I messed up, last week
I was at the local store buying some
groceries once again. And low and,
behold one of Just Southern's faith-
ful readers pointed out that part of
the column had been left out. I know
y'all probably find mistakes in the ol'
Journal from time to time but we work
really hard to catch most of them. I
just couldn't believe that part of the
column had been left out but it surely
was. Since I'm the one who made up
page 3 and page 16 last week I didn't
even have anyone else to blame but
myself. Anyway I am sorry that I
fouled things up. So here's the last
little bit of last weeks column and the
recipe that was left out.

Hush puppies have always been a
favorite of John's. Several,years ago
we started filling a zip lock bag with
puppy batter and cutting the comer
off so we could squeeze long skinny
hush puppies into the bubbling hot
oil of our fish cooker. Recently I
tried the Dixie Lily Hush Puppy mix
which comes in a red bag and found
that it is really good. So next time
you cook up some fish, try the mix;'
they have it down at our Hitchcock's
.store in Trenton.

My brother, Lloyd Beauchamp and
his family over near Chiefland make
really wonderful smoked sausage.
Recently he gave us a package and
they were some kind of fine. They
make their link sausage from home-
grown hogs that they butcher. Lloyd
smokes the sausage a really long time
which makes them much better than
any you can buy. He told me he uses
green bay wood in his smokehouse. I
tell you when you just walk-past his
little ol' smokehouse you can smell
the wonderful smoky aroma of all

that pork which has been smoked
there for many years. Must be all that
lard and meat drippings that have
dripped from the smoking meat into
the sand through the years. I suwan-
nee there must be 1,000 calories in
just one good whiff of that air near
his smokehouse.
When cooking pork the USDA rec-
ommends that pork be cooked to an
internal temperature of 160 degrees.
Let the meat rest for 10 to 15 minutes
before carving to allow juices to be
distributed throughout the meat. Cut-
ting meat cross grain will produce
more,tender pieces of pork.

1 1/2 to 2 pounds pork tenderloin
4 or 5 slices of bacon per tenderloin
1/2 cup mustard
1/2 cup olive oil
4 cloves of minced garlic
Salt and Pepper
Beat mustard, olive oil and garlic
with whisk until well blended. Salt
and pepper each tenderloin and coat
tenderloins -with marinade. Next
wrap each loin with bacon wrapping
it round and round and securing with
tooth picks. Place tenderloins. in zip
top bag and chill overnight or for 2 to
4 hours. Take out of the refrigerator
and let meat come to room tempera-
ture before grilling. Cook on a me-
dium grill until done. As the fat cooks
out of the bacon the grill will often
have fire flair ups so keep a close eye
on your grill.
Wooden skewers work well instead
of toothpicks but whichever you use
they need to be soaked in water for
about 30 minutes before using. Soak-
ing the wood picks or skewers in wa-
ter keeps them from catching on fire
on the grill.

Really great people make you feel
that you, too, can become great.

American Legion Airs
The American Legion Family'in Newberry suffered a loss last week. Doris Cook,
the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 149 President, passed away on March 21, 2007.
The members of Auxiliary Unit 149 held an Auxiliary graveside service after the regular
funeral service by her nephew, Reverend Andy. Cook of the Bronson Road Baptist
Church. Doris was buried at Union Baptist Church where she attended. She was an
important part of the American Legion Family at Newberry Post 149 and will'be missed
It is that time of year that the Department of Florida begins reminding the individual
Legion Posts to send in the Consolidated Post Report. The Consolidated Report, or CPR
as it is called, is more than just an outline of what the individual Post has achieved in the
past year.
When the American Legion National Commander goes in front of Congress, these
reports show the strength of theAmerican Legion in numbers s a collective united all
14,600 American Legion Posts are speaking as one with a strong voice to the elected
officials of our Nation. This yearly report, with the information it contains, is a great tool
in getting the attention of those in Washington, D.C., and all of our elected officials.
The CPR shows how the local Legion Posts influence their communities, listing their
volunteer hours, their dedication and service to that community, and hopefully, Congress
might have a more receptive "ear" when the Legion has an issue to bring before them
for resolution. This also is another reason to encourage our fellow veterans to join or
renew their membership in our American Legion. Congress and the Senate recognize
these numbers as votes and if we stand strong for an issue, those elected officials will
know. Remember to ASK your fellow veterans to join with us to continue "Serving
April is Children and Youth Month in the American Legion. The Legion has many
brochures about youth-oriented safety concerns, available for the asking. Either ask the
Post Commander or Post Children and Youth Chairperson, or contact the Department of
Florida and ask for the particular brochures you are interested in. The Florida Child
Welfare Foundation is a separate corporation to fund efforts that deal with problems
affecting children. The only source of income is through contributions by individual
members of the Legion family. Grants are awarded to not-for-profit programs that
benefit children. These are just a few of the programs available in the American Legion.
Newberry Post 149 meets on the first Tuesday of the month at the Post home on
SR-26 just on the West side of Newberry, and Tuesday, April 3 is the night. On Monday
and Tuesday, April 2 and 3, the Post is hosting a tool show, so if you need tools, that is
the place to go on the 2nd and 3rd of April.
Remember our Armed Forces in your thoughts and prayers each day, and here at
home, watch over our Legion Family, veterans; widows and the families of those called
to active duty in service to our Nation, helping out however and whenever we can.

"Pray always," so the Bible says,
as a command for those who believe
that the Creator of the universe does
listen and does answer the heart cries
of those who come to Him. We live in
peace and freedom here in America
because of those who serve, and de-
pend on us here at home to consider
them, especially when we pray; as
we consider the multitudinous jobs
which have to be rendered for our
protection, as well as times of expe-
rienced loneliness for those who are
far away from the familiar and dear
objects of their affection: mainly
family. So please make it a daily

his pitching and produced runs with
his bat. Jones led Trenton to a 25-6
win over the Bulldogs.
Thursday the Bulldogs played
Bronson at home. Zach Hunter start-

well. The Builli-gs defense was

USDA offers low
interest emergency loans
to farmers in 14 disaster
declared counties
Farmers in 14 north and central
Florida counties that suffered signifi-
cant damage caused by recent storms
may apply for low-interest Emer-
gency Loans from the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture's Farm Service
Agency (FSA), said Kevin L. Kelley,
FSA State Executive. These loans
currently carry an interest rate of 3i75
Eligible farmers can use emergen-
cy loan funds to overcome physical
losses, such as repair or rebuild es-
sential farm buildings, clean debris
or prepare land for replanting, and
to replace livestock, supplies and
harvested crops on hand or in stor-
age that were lost. Eligible farmers
can also use emergency loan funds
toward production losses, to recover
a portion of losses on growing crops
that were destroyed.
Four central Florida counties-Lake,
Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia-were
recently named Presidential major
disaster declaration areas as a result
of severe storms and tornadoes that
occurred February lst-2nd, 2007.
Producers in these counties and in
the following contiguous counties
may apply for low-interest Emergen-
cy Loans from FSA: Brevard, Citrus,
Flagler, Hernando, Marion, Orange,
Osceola, Pasco, Polk, and Putnam.
Emergency Loan Program appli-
cations for physical and production
losses are due in county FSA offices
by October 3, 2007.
Volusia County was also declared
a Presidential Major Disaster area on
February ,8, 2007, as a result of se-
vere storms, tornadoes and flooding
which occurred on December 25,
2006. Producers in that county and
in the following contiguous counties
have until October 9, 2007, to sub-
mit applications for FSA Emergency
Loans: Brevard, Flagler, Lake, Mar-
ion, Orange, Osceola, Putnam,. and

Seminole. Producers in these coun-
ties have until October 9, 2007, to
apply for Emergency Loan Program
Presidential major disaster declara-
tions, must be requested by a gover-
nor to the President, are administered
through the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA). A Presi-
dential major disaster declaration can
be made within days or hours of the
initial request.
Farmers in eligible counties have
eight months from the date of the
declaration to apply for loans to help
cover part of their actual losses.
Qualified farm operators in the des-
ignated areas eligible for low interest
emergency (EM) loans, provided
eligibility requirements .are met, and
FSA will consider each loan applica-
tion on its own merits, taking into
account the extent of losses, security
available and repayment ability.
"Unpredictable weather events put
.farmers at risk in producing a de-
pendable and affordable food supply.
We are pleased to be able to provide
Emergency Loan program assistance
to producers as quickly as possible,"
said Kelley.
The FSAhas a variety of programs,
in addition to the EM loan program,
to help eligible farmers recover from
adversity. USDA has also made other
programs available to assist farmers
and ranchers, including the Emergen-
cy Conservation Program, Federal
Crop Insurance and the Noninsured
Crop Disaster Assistance Program.

assistance, contact a local USDA Ser-
vice Center or Farm Service Agency

Spring has certainly sprung with a

make a great addition to our gazebo
area for all of our residents to enjoy.
The care given to this area has greatly
benefited our residents in both body
and spirit. Mrs. Tebeau along with a
few staff members planted marigolds
with various other varieties of bright-
ly colored flowers. Of course there
were a few supervisors on the job like
Mrs. Myrtice Williams who gave her
support and nod of approval. It was
a job, they all reported, but one they
really enjoyed digging into.

coming Sunrise Services. No offense
but...if the weather is not to our liking
it's moved indoors. It seems to me,
more and more our level of comfort
is more important than the occasion
we are celebrating.
It's hard to imagine the degree of
discomfort our Lord endured for us
and how little we are willing to en-
dure for Him, not only at Easter but in
our everyday walk with Him. Here's
hoping the weather, our hair, what
we're wearing is just right when He
comes again or some folks just won't
want to go.
But, going is not a problem for
our Joyful Hearts. They are always
on the go. And so on Wednesday,
April 4th, twenty-two Joyful Hearts
and two visitors gathered together to
quilt, craft, and chat.
Olga Knott, Pat Luka, Ann Man-
gone, and Elaine Nemeth all settled
down at the club quilt and made neat
little stitches that put mine to shame.
..Lu Rowland,,, AliceBinns, and
NM ry Lou Ryder worked on theiti-
Swedish weaving While Jane Boyd"
kept busy teaching her granddaugh-
ter, Destiny, how to embroider.
Cathy Strom made like the Easter
bunny and took to decorating. Des-
tiny and I helped some but Cathy was
hippity hoppin' down that bunny trail
doing her magic. Myrle Gilkey is
still crocheting on her bright yellow
afghan and Lera Townsend was cro-
cheting as well as Matty Turner.
Barbara Myrick was doing some

old-fashioned embroidery work, the
kind you can't hardly find anymore.
Maxine Hale, who has been under the
weather for so long, was just glad to
be there and we were just as glad to
have her.
Ann Taylor and Bonnie Edwards
worked on our card holders that we're
making as a service project. We've
got quite a few finished, thanks to ev-
eryone that's helping.
Alberta Swanner who hasn't been
able to come for a month of Sundays
was able to make it and for "show
and tell" she showed off the first
quilt she'd ever made. She's one of
the original Joyful Hearts and you'll
see her quilt in the paper one of these
days, it's just beautiful.
Grandma Betty, as everyone knows
her by, dropped in to visit and share
some things with us. She's better
known as the lady that collects, sorts,
and takes care of redeeming all the
coupons you save or should be sav-
ing for Bell Elementary. She turns all
those little pieces of paper and card-
board into dollars for the school...
praise the Lord for her and her hard
Ruth Wilkerson was knitting an-
other of her prayer shawls for a very
ill friend. Ruth knits the shawls for
someone ill and as she works on them
she has people hold them and pray
over them. I think it is a loving and
blessed thing to do and I'm sure the
prayers are heard...praise God.
Diana Lynn has, again this year,
been working on costumes for the
up-coming play her son Zach is in, at
Bell High School.
This year the costumes are really
hard. She brought the pattern and
material for Zach's in. Barbara Strom
helped her get the pattern pinned on
and cut which in and of itself was not
an easy task. Now Diana has to fig-
ure out how to sew it together...good
luck girl.
Marvine Deer, Alice Binns, Mary
Lou Ryder and I talked more abofit
our "tea" coming up Wednesday,
May 2nd. We're really getting ex-
cited about it. It should be fun...fun...
Barbara Strom brought in two
"things" she "invented" to make
quilting easier. When we get the pic-
tures back I'll tell you about them. It
will make more sense if you see them
when I write about them.
Not many people brought a lunch
to eat but nearly everyone stayed for
ice cream sundaes...and why not?
Our next meeting will be Wednes-

i ;tL,10o, ^!l B

day, April 18th at 9:00 a.m. at the Fire
Station on County Road 138. We
hope everyone's feeling better and
able to make it. Our prayers are with
Paulene and George Martin, Heidi
Kamp, Betty Hicks, Jackie and Law-
rence Moore and Rita Simcoe.
I had two blue bird eggs in each of
my blue bird houses. At first I was
afraid it was too hot for them. Now,
I'm afraid it was too cold. Maybe
they've hatched. I'll have to take
another look and see. I haven't seen
much activity going on. Usually the
moms and dads are frantic trying to
keep them fed, Here's hoping all is
well with them and the rest of God's

CNA graduating class
Wednesday afternoon, March 28th,
eightstudents graduated from Cen-
tral Florida Community College's
Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
program at the Levy Center. The
CNA program consists of 80 hours
of classroom and lab training as well
as 44 hours of clinical experience
in a local health care facility. The

Rehabilitation Center in Trenton for
their clinical experience
The graduates received diplomas

Open letter to all
citizens to beware of
counterfeit money
Before you say, well she should
have known better, think, did I know
that?" BEWARE-there are some
U.S. Postal counterfeit money or-
ders going around. When you look
at them the money order looks real.
But hold it up to the light and if you
cannot see a print of Ben Franklin's
picture on the left side, then you
guessed it... NO GOOD. Believe me
I got one and had no idea that it was
not a good money order. How many
people know this?
Do not think that the State's Attor-

for Certified Nursing Assistant as
well.as CPR certification. The class
prepares students to work in the
health care field as nursing assistants
and to take and pass the Florida Cer-
tified Nursing Assistant exam.
Graduating were Anita Crise, Chel-
sea Woodard, Fatima Bamberger, Jas-
mine Jordan, Jessica Miller, Mindy
Zwak, Tiffany Fowler and Veronica
All classes, except clinical training,
are held in Chiefland at the CFCC
Levy Center. The next CNA class
will be a daytime class beginning
May 14th. Because the class size is
limited, early registration is encour-
aged. Anystudent who would like to
enroll in the May class should do so

ney's office will be able to help you.
Just because the person that gave it to
me told the attorney that he thought it
was good, he got by with this again.
I sure do not want anything like this
to happen to someone else. So I am
passing on to you some information
that I have learned. If after you have
checked the picture and still are not
sure, then call this number and fol-
low the instructions 1-866-974-2733.
Merchants, make sure all your clerks
know this number.
.At this point this person is walking
free andI am out the money. You can
not be too careful these days. I know
I sure will be more careful.
Thanks for your time and I hope

Beware of insurance
policies that don't pay
Attorney General Bill McCollum
today announced that his office has
launched a formal investigation into
a company selling insurance-like
products to seniors in Florida, but
failing to pay for services. McCol-
lum simultaneously issued a con-
sumer alert, warning Floridians about
the business practices employed by
Homeward Bound, a Pennsylvania-
based company already banned from
selling its products in Pennsylvania
and Wisconsin.

Homeward Bound targets senior
citizens, selling policies with wait-
ing periods of six months to a year.
The policies are intended to pay for
a specified number of hours contract-
ed for assistance services, including
cleaning, meal preparation and basic
care services. Although the company
has been selling policies in Florida
since 2004, it has routinely failed to
pay for the promised services.
, The Attorney General's Economic,
Crimes Division launched the inves-
tigation after receiving complaints
from several health care providers.
The investigation also includes Per-
sonalized Home Services, a com-

pany with similar business practices
and some common ownership with
Homeward Bound.
Complaints about Homeward
Bound can be filed by calling the At-
torney General's fraud hotline at 1-
866-9-NO-SCAM (1-866-966-7226)
or online at http://myfloridalegal.

Hurst of the Col. David Lang Camp

Division, Public Affairs Officer, Flor-
ida Division to speak on the Battle of
Natural Bridge located south of Tal-

Tallahassee is the only Confederate
capital east of the Mississippi River
that never fell into Union hands dur-
ing the War Between the States.
Natural Bridge located six miles
east of Woodville off S.R. 363 on
Natural Bridge Road (Florida 354),
.was the scene where a motley militia
of old men and young boys helped
defeat a Union threat to Tallahassee.
On March 6th in the foggy pre-
dawn hours a series of skirmishes oc-
curred and after a 10-hour period, the
Confederate forces, some 500 to 700
strong and \well entrenched, repelled
three anack;s and several minor skiir,
rushes. After three anj the Union,
forces did a hasty retreat back under
the protection of the Union fleet at St.
Marks River.
John Hance O'Steen Camp will
meet at the Bell Community Center

tales to tell everyday, some are like

guage; you don't understand a word
of it but you listen and watch.

Trenton Rotary gets a
visit from Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation
By Anna Wild
On Monday, April 9, 2007 the
Trenton Rotary Club members were
pleased to have the folks from Ayers
Health and Rehabilitation visit to let
the business community know about
some of the exciting changes taking
place at the center. Jo Buckles, Direc-
tor of Ayers Health & Rehabilitation,
was happy to announce that the cen-
ter had received two of three grants
that they had applied for to improve
the living experience. of the residents
and patients who come to Ayers.
The grants come from the Agency
for.Health Care Administration who
license centers like Ayers. They en-
sure minimum guidelines are being
met, failure to meet guidelines comes
with financial penalties for the cen-
ters and these funds are in turn made
into grant money for those working
to enrich the lives' of their clients.
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation is
very proud to be making improve-
ments to the tune of $219,000 which
will enrich the lives of the 120 pa-
tients and residents at the center.
One of these grants is being used
to renovate an area called the "Fam-
ily Room" for their dementia resi-
dents. The idea is to promote a more
homelike environment, so walls are
being torn down and Gray Con.rruc-
tion of Trenton is renovating the fam-
ily room to include a living area, din-
ing room, kitchen, and entertainment
area. This room will provide a home
environment for the residents when
they are iot sleeping. The members
of the Ayers family want the residents
to feel like they are "home." Their
address has changed but everything
else is as much like "home" as pos-
sible. Another change taking place, is
the residents have been able to help
make these changes at Ayers. The
rooms will soon be referred to as
apartments, the different wings will
be neighborhoods, and the employ-
ees are stepping back, sitting down,
and talking to the residents about
-their lives before Ayers. The resi-
dents will be encouraged to.do daily
routine things, the same times as they
always had, not necessarily on a time
set by the center.
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
was able to purchase a 12 passenger
bus to allow the residents more op-
portunities to go on day trips to local
museums, go out shopping, etc. This
is called their "Wheels to the World"
and again they want their residents
to be encouraged to do all the things
they did before moving to their home
at Ayers..

April 21st from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00
p.m. and Sunday, April 22nd from
10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Education is always ongoing at
Ayers and their dementia care unit
is making some additional changes.
to make sure they are allowing their
residents to not only communicate on
their individual level but allow them
to do things for themselves. Jo Buck-
les explained, "I have always had a
great time with the residents, but now-
it is even better because I am learn-
ing about them and they are learning
about me and it's about relationships.
Because once you get to know people
better you take better care of them."
Then Jo summed up the changes by
saying "we are -changing in terms
of dementia care, were changing
how the' facility looks, we're culture
changing and we are also heading out
to the world!"

Then the members of Trenton Ro-
tary had the chance to hear from Mrs.
Ruth Cribb who has been a resident
at Ayers for the past 7 years, she is
99 years young and was kind enough
to share a couple of her life's experi-
ences. She enjoys quilting and spoke
very highly about her experience at
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation.
Brandi. Loyelace, Director of Ac-
tivities, invited the community to an
Open House set for May 18th for the
unveiling of the new "Family Room"
and allow everyone to learn more
about their dementia care changes.
Trenton Rotary thanked the residents
and Ayers family for joining them
and sharing their changes with the
