The Gilchrist County Commission
held a'public hearing to adopt Ordi-
nance 07-05 on Monday, April 16 in
a regular mid month meeting. This
ordinance identifies County Roads
SE 25th Avenue, SW 47th Court, a
portion of CR 340 and 307 and a por-
tion of CR 232. Commissioner Sha-
ron Akins Langford made a motion
to take out SE 25th Avenue because
residents Jerome and Carman Blake
asked the board to reduce the speed
limit on that road to.40 mph. Com-
missioner Tommy Langford gave a
second to the motion.
Mrs. Blake asked the board if the


portion of Shady Grove Road-SE
25th Avenue from SR 26 to a point
where the road enters Levy County
be set at 45 mph instead of 30 mph.
Jerome Blake explained to the board
that the traffic that travels this 2.5-
mile stretch drives above the pres-
ent 55 mph speed limit. "I feel if the
speed limit is reduced to 30 mph,
then this will be too slow for this
stretch of road through this sparsely
populated residential area," Blake
explained. Carmen Blake explained
that the last accident on this road was
two years ago on the portion leading
to CR 339.


Commissioner D. Ray Harrison
asked what is the speed limit on the
portion of the Levy County Road
from CR 339 to where the road enters
into Gilchrist County? Justin Watson,
Gilchrist Road Department Superin-
tendent told the board that the Levy
County road was 35 mph but did not
have any signs as it entered Gilchrist
County. Commissioner Harrison
spoke in favor of reducing the speed
limit to 35 mph.
Chairman Randy Durden called for
a vote and the board supported the
motion to reduce the speed limit to
40 mph by a 4-1 vote. Commissioner
Harrison voted no.

exceed their goal


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The 2007 Relay for Life paid off
in a big way when the funds raised
reached $36,617.43; the goal for this
event was $35,000.00. Annie Egan
the co-chair for the Relay was very
pleased that their goal was reached
and surpassed. On Monday Ms. Egan
said, "We achieved our goal and there
is still money that is being turned in.
We will be accepting donations until
August of 2007 for this Relay." All
the funds raised at the event will go
to the American Cancer Society. The
event, which pairs up Relay teams
from Gilchrist and Levy Counties,
has become a tradition in the Suwan-
nee Valley area. Annie worked
closely with Frances Osteen LaSalle
from Bronson to organize the 2007
Relay for Life. The plans for the Re-
lay began in May of 2006 when the
Carnival theme was chosen. A to-
tal of 28 teams from Trenton, Bell,
Chiefland and Bronson worked tire-
lessly to raise funds for this event for
months in advance. Only eighteen
teams participated in the 2006 Relay
for life.
The Relay for Life teams from
Gilchrist County included two teams
from the Gilchrist County Court-
house, the Gilchrist County Sher-

including a 305-pound Dixie Counti
w\eightlifier known simple as "Ca\\ e-
man."
"I set a goal for this year to bench
more than 375 pounds and I did 385,
but I think I could have gotten 400
pounds," Hilliard gaid. "I've always
wanted to go to state competition, but
because we're independent we won't
get to go, so districts was it for us."
District competition concluded
Hilliard's high school weightlifting
career, but the 6'4, 297-pound athlete
intends to train for Florida Strong-
man competitions inthe future.
"I started lifting three years ago
because my friends wanted me to
start playing football and weightlift-
ing was part of our training," Hilliard
said. "At first I was pathetic. The first
year I didn't even get 200."
During his junior year, Hilliard
won almost all his weight meets and
placed first at districts with a 355-
pound bench press and a 255-pound
clean.

"One of the things I like about
weightlifting is that you can only get
better and it.keeps you in good shape.
I've lost 30 pounds since I got started
playing football and lifting weights,"
Hilliard said. "Getting it pumping is
a big stress reliever if you have a bad
day."
Acclaimed weightlifter Bryan Hi-
note served as Hilliard's role model.
Hilliard said that hearing stories
about the former Bell High School
student growing from a puny kid
who was always getting picked on to
a Strongman competition winner was
an inspiration.
"My junior year he [Hinote] came
to one of our meets and talked to me.
I scratched on all three of my lifts
because I was trying to impress him.
Afterwards I was almost crying when
he called me off to the side and talked
to me for 30 minutes. He encouraged
me to stick with it because I care
about the sport. That meant so much
to me," Hilliard said.
Mudh like his role model, Hill-
iard explained that while other high
school athletes experiment with ste-
roids to up performance levels, he
will only take protein.

As wildfires rage, Gilchrist County

monitors for any sign of smoke


By Carrie A. Mizell
As fire crews from throughout
Florida worked to control a 1400
acre brushfire in Putnam County
last week, Gilchrist County resi-
dents endured heavy smoke from
a massive 56,000 acre fire rapidly
consuming Ware County, Georgia.
Warm temperatures and a lack of
widespread rainfall are contribut-
ing to a higher wildfire threat this
.spring, according to Charles H.
Bronson, Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services Commissioner.
Gilchrist County is currently see-
ing a drought index in the 500s,
as indicated by the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index, which measures the
amount of moisture in the upper three
feet of soil on a scale which ranges
from 0 (flood conditions) to 800
(desert-like conditions). Statewide,
the KBDI has risen to an average of
404, with a simultaneous increase in
the number of wildfires, according
to Ludie Ehlers, Wildfire Mitigation
Specialist at the Division of Forestry.
"Gilchrist County is facing a mod-
erate drought at this time," Ehlers said.
From 'January to April 2006, Gil-
christ County reported 25 wildfires,
accounting for 85 charred acres.
The primary cause of the wildfires
was cited as authorized yard trash
burs and non-authorized pile burs.
Twelve wildfires have been re-
ported in Gilchrist County in 2007.
Four structures, one mobile home
near Bell and three other mobile
homes/apartments in northeast Gil-
christ County have been consumed
by wildfires, along with 96 acres.
Statewide, 1,610 wildfires have
reportedly burned from January 1,
2007 to April 15, 2007. Of the state-
wide fires, many were very large, ac-
cording to Ehlers. She explained that
a total of 110,667 acres have burned.
"We're not expecting any type of
substantial rainfall until the sum-
mer fire season in June," Ehlers
said. "The state entered into 2007
with a 20-inch rain deficit. Now
the deficit is 8 to 10 inches."
Gilchrist Countyis fully staffedwith
forest rangers, according to Ehlers.
Tractor plow units, helicopters and
fixed wing aircraft based in Tallahas-
see, Lake City arid Ocala are available
to the county if a wildfire does start.
A fixed wing aircraft based in Tal-
lahassee was used for aerial surveil-
lance at a wildfire in Gilchrist Count'
earlier -in the spingg, according to
Ehlers. Sim ilarh. a second fixed wing
aircraft from Ocala was called in with
water buckets to drop water on the fire.
Currently, a Gainesville-based
pilot flies a fixed wing aircraft over
north central Florida to monitor

All Floridians are asked
to be extremely careful
while burning outdoors.
People are the major cause of
wildfires in Florida, whether it is
the crime of arson, escaped fire
from land-clearing, children experi-
menting with matches or an unat-
tended yard fire," Bronson said.
"People are responsible -for about
85 percent of all Florida wildfires."
Gilchrist County is not under any
burn bans at this time, but residents
are asked to attend small yard fires, at
all times. Also, remember that piles
of leaves, grass clippings, tree limbs,
palm fronds, etc. should be no greater
_than 8 feet in diameter,, or in a non- ,

Local artist Roy
Thomas creating
modern recyclism
Pictured is the latest work by our
own artist, Roy Thomas of North
Gilchrist County. Shy and retiring, he
prefers to place his masterpieces off
the beaten path.
Along the back road of N.W. 10th
Avenue stands the as yet unnamed
piece, carefully and meticulously
constructed from items gleaned from
all over the county, from the rivers to
the roadsides.
Mr. Thomas is a master of the ar-
tistic genre known as "Modem Recy-
clism." His insight and wit truly epit-
omizes the old saying: "One mans
trash is another mans treasure." He
can often be seen on Saturdays out-
side the Leggett Community Build-
ing, where he shares his views with
neighbors and often finds inspira-
tion.
We hope many friends and neigh-
bors reading this will themselves
come to see and to appreciate the ar-
tistic creative ability of Roy Thomas.

Name: Anna Mae Schofield
Early on: The daughter ofReginald
and Olivia Gray, Anna Mae grew
up on a farm in Newberry. We
grew tobacco and I said I would
not marry a man who smoked,
but I did. My brother and sister
still live on the family farm today.
Moved to Trenton: In 1948;
July will mark 59 years.
Family: Late husband, Murvin
Schofield; one daughter, Mary
Jane; one son, Gray; one grand-
daughter and one step-grandson
Worked: Firstjob at Florida Power
Corp. from 1949 until the day Mary
Jane was born. Later, I was the first
librarian at the Trenton Library,
back when I had black hair in 1959.
Then, I went to work at Lancaster
Oil in 1963. Howell Lancaster,
Jr: sold it to United Fuels, but I
continued working there 10 more
years before retiring in 1997.
What did you like about your
jobs? Seeing the people and
making new friends all the time. I
miss all those people I used to see.
Headaches of your jobs: The
reports that had to be 'sent
to Tallahassee every month,
the gas tax and the sales tax.
What do you like about living
in Gilchrist County? Everyone
is friendly. I like a small town,
but just about everybody I knew
has died. I don't know a lot of the
new people who have moved in.
How has Trenton changed since
you moved to town? All of the
businesses are moving off main


street. We used to have so many
more stores. The grocery stores
would stay open until 10 or 11 p.m.
That was back before television
and everyone would sit up in front
of what's now the drug store and
talk in the evenings. We had a dirt
street in front of my house when
I moved here, finally they paved
it and now it needs re-paving.
Favorite food: Steak and macaroni
and cheese. Gray's is spaghetti.
Hobbies: Reading.
Notmanypeople know: I have been
a member of the First United Meth-
odist Church of Trenton since 1949.
.What is something you've seen
in recent years that you never
thought you would witness? I
can't stand to see these teenage
boys with their pants around
their ankles. No one has pride
in their appearance anymore!


Letters to the Editor


Editor,
I read with interest your April 12,
2007 story about the proposed Lilly
Springs bottled water plant that will
extract one million gallons of water
per day from Gilchrist County aqui-
fers that -feed our Santa Fe River
springs. If approved by the SRWMD
and the County Commission, the
company will be authorized to pack-
age, export and sell Gilchrist County
water in bottles 'that will generate
revenues of more than $100 million
per year. Not a bad deal for a $400
special use permit application fee.
Bottled water plants exploit water,
a public natural resource that is con-
trolled, if not owned, by the people of
Florida, to make profit for sharehold-
ers of private corporations. While I
have no problem with an honest com-
,jpani making a fair profit. I do have
a problem when a public resource
is exploited for private gain p ith no'
consideration given to the actual cost
to the public of providing access to
that resource.
Unfortunately current state and
local policies leave the people of


Gilchrist County holding an empty
container.
I do not think that local property
taxes on a bottling plant will ad-
equately compensate the people for
use of this valuable water resource.
Nor will property taxes cover the ad-
ditional cost of public infrastructure,
like schools, law enforcement and
roads, needed to support the plant.
In addition, the county share of fuel
excise taxes paid by the company
will NOT cover the additional costs
required to compensate for the wear
and tear on county roads caused by
tractor trailers that haul Gilchrist
County water to customers.
SI suggest that the Gilchrist County
Commission find a way to levy a spe-
cial use fee, an excise tax, an extrac-
tion fee or consumptive use fee on wa-
ters that are collected within Gilchrist
Count). bottled and exported for use
and sale outside of Gilchrist County.

Finding a legal way to implement
this fee may be difficult and require
creative thinking. But there should! be
a way to do this.
A tax or fee may be unpopular

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The need for good jobs in Gilchrist
County that 1 made reference to in
this column last week was referred
to by one subscriber that I was in
favor of having additional water bot-
tling plants permitted in Gilchrist
County. This is not necessarily true.
I feel the futures of Gilchrist County
residents are being impacted because
the amount of water that circulates
back through the aquifer is less as
each extraction permit is approved.
It is an acceptable practice to spray
the earth above the aquifer with irri-
gation, septic tanks and other forms
of permitted uses, but when the water
is bottled and transported through-
out the world, the aquifer feeding
Gilchrist will be at a loss.
Experts report that millions of
gallons of spring water extracted
from the vast aquifer that provides
Gilchrist County and other north
Florida counties with drinking water
has not been impacted beyond being
able to replenish itself at this time.
Bottled water is probably the most
popular drink that people in the Unit-
ed States use every day.
Last week I spoke with a neighbor
that resides in the northeast portion of
Gilchrist County and she explained
that there were many residents that
were experiencing dry water wells
and other problems associated with
extreme drought in the area of Lilly
Springs. She also explained that the
traffic from the existing water bot-
tling plant has really increased.

a lot of time boating on the Suwan-
nee River in Gilchrist County have
reported that the river levels are con-
tinually falling.
This is springtime, one of the most
beautiful and enjoyable times of the
year. It has been in the past a time
when this area has received a good
amount of rain fall from the weather
fronts that pass through this area from
the west to the east.
This year the front seems to be drift-
ing to the north, and leaving this area
dryer than normal. The woods are dry
and the aquifer that feeds our wells
and rivers are now being affected.
During the summer and early fall
Florida and the southeast United
States usually receives a substantial
amount of their average rainfall from
the tropical storms that originate in
the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean, aid
the Atlantic Ocean. It will take a lot
of rainfall to return our aquifer to a
level that it will again replenish the
moisture in the ground.

..COOKING ,AND CARRYIN'ON




COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


Last weekend we began harvest-
ing our one row of large sweet on-
ions. For a couple of people who
have never really attempted growing
onions they are some kind of fine. I
have to brag just a little. These on-
ions grew to be really large and they
are so sweet. Them folks in Vidalia,
Georgia.can't even touch our onions
for flavor. On Sunday evening we
had a great supper of hamburgers and
homemade onion rings. What a feast!
I will admit if I am buying onions
from the store and Vidalia onions are
available I will pay the extra because
they are truly worth it.
SOur longtime friend Mr. Lomer
Rogers has been our inspiration for
growing onions. For years he would
bring us wonderful onions that he
grew in his garden in the Waccasassa
Flats out near the Judson area.
Carrie took a bag of onions home
with her on Monday arid made steak
with onion gravy for supper. First
thing Tuesday morning she called me
to let me know how much they had
enjoyed the onion gravy.
Uh-oh, we better plant two rows
next year.

You know there are just a few
dishes that you are especially fond
of because your grandmother always
made them. The following recipes
were made often by my grandmother,
"Shannie." As soon as the cucumbers
were ready in the garden Shannie
would serve cucumber and onion at
her huge noon meal daily.
She also always had deviled eggs,
a plate of sliced tomatoes, and dish
of homemade sweet pickles on the
table during the summertime. The
table would be laden with every fresh
vegetable that she could find, several
meats, and corn stick or biscuits.

American Legion Airs
SIt's that.time of year again. Post Officer Elections! When all members go into hiding
so as to not be elected to any post or position in the local Legion Post. Then those
members can fuss about how the Post is being run into the ground by those interlopers
that have no business in running an American Legion Post. Why, those nabobs have no
idea how the Post should be run! Why can't those people just do it right!
Any of this sound familiar? When we as Legionnaires sit back and let someone,
ANYONE, else run the Post, with no help or assistance from other members, we are
asking for trouble. All Legionnaires in the Post need to pitch in to see the Post is run
properly. If there are new officers, let the past officers help get these newv folks off to a
good start. Stand ready to assist with the jobs at hand until the new officers get the hang
of the job.
If everyone in the Post were to lend a hand, the individual jobs would be alot easier.
Make sure the new officer candidates understand that they must attend most all of the
meetings and be a member in good standing in the Post, which means that the current
dues are paid in full for this year in the Post. Ensure these new officer candidates are
aware of what the job entails. That information is in the post officer's manual, as well as
in the memories of the past officers of that position.
The duration of the position is from July to June of the next year and as part of the
Executive Committee, those officers run the business of the Legion Post. While some of
the positions have a bit more work involved, with help from the past officers and the
members of the Post, the jobs can be rewarding and sometimes even fun.
Step forward and help lead your American Legion Post into and beyond this next
year. Get involved with the programs and see how they can affect the community and
the veterans in our communities.
Newberry American Legion Post 149 will have a meeting on the first Tuesday, May
2, 2007 at 7:00 p.m. at the post home on the west side of Newberry. Elections are
planned for the May meeting.
Plan to attend and stand ready to help Post 149 into this next year of 2007-2008.
Continue to remember our Armed Forces each day in your thoughts and prayers and
here at home, watch over our Legionnaires, veterans, widows, and the families of those
called to active duty in service to America, helping out however and whenever we can.
For God and Country.
For God and Country,
Wayne Gravely,
American Legion Post 149

"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

4-Pets Sake news
A few years ago I was in favor of
animal control in Gilchrist County
only because pets needed someone
to enforce their owners to give them
adequate food, water and shelter and
bring to justice those who abandon
them.
I am shocked that animals are
treated as criminals while their own-
ers go free. In a case of abandonment
an animal has to forage for food and
water while being chased, shot and
yelled at just to survive.
According to the old ordinance a
pet belongs to you if you feed it for
seven days. I have no problem with
that as long as there is ample time
to work with an abused or scared
pet to gain their trust in order to get
their necessary medical needs done.
However, why doesn't this hold true
for the people who abandon it? Why
aren't these idiots held responsible
when surrounding neighbors have
seen the pet living on that property
months before they left it? Int some
cases the neighbors would attest to
the fact. Meanwhile the person who
committed the crime is free to prac-
tice the same routine over and'over!
Division two. Administration and
Enforcement Section 14-62 rights
and duties of the department. The de-
partment and any animal control offi-.
cer or other person authorized by the
department, shall be immune from
prosecution, civil, or criminal for
good faith trespass on private prop-
erty for discharging the duties of this
article or other authorized duties.
Section 14-000. Impoundment
and confiscation of animals, right of
entry (c) animal services shall have
the authority to enter public or un-
fenced private property, exclusive
of buildings to carry out the, duties
imposed by this chapter. (d) animal
services shall have the authority to
enter fenced private property, exclu-
sive of buildings. What does all this
mean? Section 14-62 tells me that
animal control is above the law and
in essence you have little to no rights
on your own property. If you have
a gathering with family and friends


and animal control is in pursuit of an
animal and has entered your property
and causes damage either physically
to you, or your property you will have
no recourse. This is to me a threat-
ening situation of public safety be-
ing ignored. Section 14-000 entry of
property that is fenced or unfenced.
Why go through the expense of fenc-
ing to protect your family and pets?
I am making a suggestion in re-
gards to taping phone calls from and
to animal control. Folks have said
they reported an incident when in
fact they did not. Others call giving
false information about their neigh-
bors or ex's pets. The best way to
stop the lies is to have a record of


all calls. If there is a question of any
conversation everything would be on
tape. If you need someone to interpret
or you want to give your input go to

On the mound with the
Bulldogs
By Sean Boutwell.
Monday started the last regular sea-
son week for the Bulldogs. The Bull-
dogs started the week badly. They
traveled to Dixie County to face the
Bears for the second time this season.
Bell got the better of Dixie in their
first meeting but played sloppy in this
game. The first inning past without
any offensive threat to either team.
In the second inning the Bulldogs left
men on second and third. The Bears
lit up starter Zach Hunter and the
Bulldogs defense in their second half
inning. The Bears only had two hits
in the inning but pushed across five
runs. The Bulldogs three errors also
helped Dixie County get the early
lead. In the third inning Bell left run-
ners on the comers and Dixie scored
another run. Dixie added three more
in the fourth and two in the fifth.
Bell finally managed to get a batter
across in the fifth when Tommy Cal-
lahan drove in C. J. Harris. It wasn't
enough though Dixie won 11-1 forc-
ing the ten run rule on the Bulldogs.
Thursday the Bulldogs played Ce-
dar Key. It was the Bulldogs' final
home game of the season. Seniors
Brandon Ridgeway, Alan Aderholt,
Devin Taylor and Trent Shepherd
were recognized before the game.
The Bulldogs struggled early and al-
lowed Cedar Key to have a 5-3 lead
after four innings. Zach Hunter got
Cedar Key to go out 1-2-3 in the fifth
inning and then the Bulldogs' rally
began. Zach started the fifth inning
by popping out to the second base-
man. After that Devin Taylor singled,
Trent Shepherd and Brandon Ridge-
way drew walks and fellow senior
Alan Aderholt hit a two-run single
to tie the game. On the next pitch
Alan stole second and then C. J. Har-
ris knocked in Brandon and Alan. Ty
Smith flew out to center. Justin Fowl-
er drew a walk. C. J. got home on a
passed ball and Fowler advanced to
third. Tommy Callahan reached on an
error and Justin Fowler came home.
By the time Cedar Key ended the in-
ning, the Bulldogs scored six runs
getting the lead 9-5. In the sixth Ce-


dar Key didn't score and the Bulldogs
scored six more runs and ten runs
ruled Cedar. Key with the final score
of 15-5. Senior Devin Taylor was
player of the game, he was 3/5 with 1
run, 1 RBI, and 3 stolen bases.
Friday the Bulldogs ended the
regular season in Bronson. Zach
Hunter pitched for the Bulldogs and
had a great game. He gave up three
unearned runs through seven long
innings of work. Zach finished with.
three strikeouts. In the sixth inning
with the scored tied at three Zach had
one out with a man on third when he
caught a runner napping at first to
get his second out. He walked a bat-
ter and ended the inning by making a
batter pop out to second. The game
went into an extra inning. Ty Smith
had come in to pitch and he got his
first man to fly out to right field. He
then struck out the next batter but the
ball was missed by Brandon Ridge-
way and the runner reached on base.
Brandon left the game die to aggra-
vating an injury he received earlier-
from being hit by a Bronson pitcher.
Alan Aderholt replaced him. The
man on first stole second and reached
third when an umpire inadvertently
interfered on a passed ball. The next
batter bunted the runner in to win the
game 4-3. The Bulldogs finished the
regular season 13-12.

Bell Elementary
students kick off canned
food drive
Bell Elementary students kicked
off a canned food drive on April 23,
2007 to fill the shelves at the Senior
Food Bank.
Students will build a PYRAMID
OF NUTRITION for the county's
senior citizens. The food drive will
continue until May 10, 2007.
When the goal of 655 cans of
food has been met, the student, who
brought in the most cans, wins a
$50.00 US SAVINGS BOND. Of.
course, it's OK to exceed that goal!
This is a good time for parents and
teachers to help students realize the
concern and needs of the senior citi-
zens in our county..

Hit the ground running
upon graduation
Certified Coach shares secrets to
transition from-college campus to
corporate climate
There's more opportunity and more
choices than ever for college gradu-
ates, but according to Career Coach
Hallie Crawford, CPCC, MA, the
key for students to land a great job
upon graduation and be prepared for
life after school is to think and plan
ahead.
"Surveys show employers plan to
hire almost 18 percent more new col-
lege graduates from the class of 2007
than they did from the class of 2006
and the i.h .0. ill : to the ones h,>l
are mostprepjrd Ifor the trran;iiin.''
says Crawford, r io helps graduates
and their parents create a career
plan.
The growing demand for new
graduates is a result of an increased
demand for employers' products and
services; in addition, employees--
baby boomers--are retiring or nearing
retirement age, and other employees
are leaving organizations for new op-
portunities.
Indications are that employers ex-
pect the good job market to continue-
-or perhaps get. better.
"Most students don't think about
getting a job until close to graduation,
which is a mistake," says the career
coach. "College students so frequent-
ly graduate unprepared for life after
college, and with no sense of what
they want to do. Many return to live
with their parents although they'd
actually prefer not to." But just like
finding the best college, developing
a plan of action to find a career that
suits one's personality, interests and
talents should start about a year prior
to graduating.
Crawford shares the following tips
to get the plan started: 1. Discover
what's important to you in life and in
a ,career-determine your values and
priorities. "Know yourself and what
you think you want to do," she says.
"Now is the time to explore what you
want to be when you 'grow up." 2.
Gain inspiration from others who are
working in a field they love. "Find
a mentor by identifying successful
people in your life and talk to them
about what they did to get there," ex-
plains Crawford. 3. Get the experi-
ence. "A college degree is important
to manly employers, but real world
experience is even more valuable,"
she says. An internship will build
many of the skills employers find
lacking. "And it's not just an oppor-
tunity to gain experience, but it's also
a setting for you to learn professional
behavior, learn what it means to work


in a team, and practice interpersonal
communication," Crawford explains.
4. Think like an employer. "I know
that a lot of money has been spent
on your education, but the reality is
employers want to see the skills, not
your college life on a resume," she
says. She suggests highlighting what
you can do on a resume, before ever
discussing where you learned to do
it.
"'Young adults and their par-
ents spend a lot of time and money
at school," says Crawford. "Don't
waste the investment by not thinking
of future plans."

What do billboards, advertise-
ments, newspapers, product packag-
ing, websites, and television, film,
and video graphics have in common?
They are all products of a broad field
known as graphic design.
Graphic design is the integration of


technology and art in combining text
and graphics to communicate an ef-
fective message to a target audience.
Designers work with cutting edge
technology and use their creativity to
solve problems in this fast growing
field. The demand for graphic design-
ers is not only in print and Web-based
graphics, but also in the entertain-
ment market, including television,
movies, videotape, and interactive
Internet publications.
If you are a creative thinker, prob-
lem solver, and like working with
computers, then Lake City Commu-

nity College (LCCC) can train you
for a career in graphic design in ten
months. LCCC offers a college cred-
it certificate in graphic design pro-
duction. The program is ten-months
in length, requiring completion of 24
credit hours in eight courses. This
includes six core computer graphics
classes as well as design fundamen-
tals and photography. The program
begins fall semester each year. Stu-
dents take three classes in the fall,
three classes in the spring, and two
classes during the summer a term.
LCCC also offers an associate in
science (A.S.) and an associate in ap-
plied science (A.A.S) in graphic de-
sign technology. The A.S. and A.A.S.
are both two-year programs requiring
64 credit hours in twenty-one cours-
es. Students are required to complete
nine core computer graphics classes
and classes in studio art, photog-
raphy, English, math, psychology,
speech, and either art history or art
appreciation. All course work com-
pleted in the ten-month college credit
certificate will articulate into the A.S.
and A.A.S. degree programs. The
program sequence begins fall semes-
ter each year with two core courses
that are prerequisites for the remain-
ing seven core courses.
Students begin with foundation
level work that includes learning
about the Macintosh computer, basic
design theories, computer illustra-
tion, image editing, and page layout.
They progress to higher levels of de-
sign theory and application, advanced
computer illustration, photo manipu-
lation, and page layout skills. Class
curriculums consist of lectures, dem-
onstrations, hands-on application, in-
dustry externships, and computer lab
work. Students become task-oriented
by learning to meet deadlines, prob-
lem-solve and work efficiently.
Lake City Community College's
graphic design technology program
prepares students for employment
in the graphic design industry by of-
fering quality training in a computer
production environment using current
industry standard software. Students
work in a state-of-the-art Macintosh
computer lab that includes Wacom
Intuos tablets, a flat bed scanner,
a film scanner, and a large format
inkjet printer. Some of the software
students use in LCCC's graphic de-
sign program include Adobe Acrobat,
Adobe Dreamweaver, Adobe Flash,
Adobe Illustrator, Adobe PageMaker,
Adobe Photoshop, Microsoft Front-
Page, Microsoft Word, and QuarkX-
Press.
The graphic design technology
program prepares students for en-
try-level positions in the industry.
Graduates will have the skills to
work in advertising, desktop publish-
ing, Web publishing, electronic photo
enhancement, and digital illustration.
Graphic designers may be employed
by advertising agencies, design firms,
printing companies, magazine pub-
lishers, or newspapers. Others may
work in the communications depart-
ment of a large organization. Some
will freelance taking on a variety of
projects from different clients.
The graphic design career field of-
fers growing opportunities for both
self-employed individuals and em-
ployees of graphic and print indus-
tries. According to the Bureau of
Labor Statistics, U.S. Department of
Labor, Occupational Outlook Hand-
book, 2006-07 Edition, employment
of graphic designers is expected to
increase nine to 17 percent through
the year 2014, as demand for graphic
design continues to increase from ad-
vertisers, publishers, and computer
design firms. The middle 50 percent
of graphic designers nationwide
earned an annual compensation of
between $29,360 and $50,840 an-
nually. In North Florida the median
hourly wage is $12.17 and the mean
annual wage is $25,740.
The graphic design program at
Lake City Community College is not
only open to students seeking the as-
sociate in science degree, associate
in applied science degree, or college
credit certificate, but also enrolls
students seeking to transfer to four-
year institutions, dual enrollment
students, and those who are seeking
job enhancement skills and personal
enrichment.
To enroll, complete an LCCC ap-
plication and pay a one-time applica-
tion fee of $15. To be officially ac-
cepted into this program a student
must provide an official high school
transcript or GED certificate, com-
plete the SAT, ACT, or CPT test, and
successfully complete any necessary
preparatory classes and 16 semester
hours of the core courses.

house Quitters


Springhouse
With the October Quilt Show fast
approaching, Springhouse members
are completing many of their projects
as well as making gifts for the quilt
show gift shop. Elaine Zahn and some
of her committee has been meeting
on Thursday to make different gift
items and those members not able to
attend the workshop have been mak-
ing gift items at home. The gift shop
will have many different handmade
quilted-sewing items for sale during
the show. These hand made items
will make great Christmas gifts.
Sandy Mount is ready for the
workshop this week. She will be
teaching approximately 15 Spring-
house members how to tat. Sandy is
a great teacher and makes beautiful
tatting pieces. She learned this talent
when she had to sit through a family
member's sickness to help pass her
time. Sandy is an inspiration with her
soft-spoken teaching techniques.
The Quilt Show committee will be
meeting on April 30, 2007 to work
on completing some of the plans nec-
essary for the October quilt show.
There is a lot of work that goes into
organizing a quilt show. Springhouse
members are hoping for a great show
and that many from the area will
take time to visit the show. A full an-
nouncement of the show will be re-
leased in the near future.
Also this month, there will be a
locker-hooking workshop by Bon-
nie Griffin. Bonnie is from Orlando
and has joined Springhouse. She
has agreed to share her talents with
Springhouse ladies.
A special thanks to the local news-
papers that print the Springhouse
news articles. We sincerely appreci-
ate you and your help in informing
the local community about Spring-
house Quilters.
For information about Springhouse
Quilters, contact Jan Litzinger, 463-

Ichetucknee lettuce pull
April 28th
On Saturday, April 28, 2007 we're
off to the Ichetucknee again for more
water lettuce work. If you haven't
been for a while, you'll be amazed at
how far downstream we are now!
If you'd like to help out that day,
meet us at the south entrance of the
park around 8:30 a.m.
Be sure to bring lunch along, a wa-
ter bottle and a dry change of clothes
isn't a bad idea either.
Remember, we get wet and dirty
so dress accordingly. We'll finish up
somewhere between 12:00 p.m. and
2:00 p.m.
We are using the canoes as trans-
portation again! It's been a while
since we've done that. It's now actu-
ally a very short paddle upstream to
the work site.
Hope to see you on the 28th. I'd
appreciate hearing from you if you
think you plan to volunteer that day.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


P# V& --~ -.-m -..I
This is another quilt that was at the Bradford County Fair. The colors
are what make this quilt so beautiful.


Log Cabin Quilters
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
April 19th at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. What a wonderful rain we
had on Wednesday night, and now
everything is smiling and blooming
and the yard is turning green. The
rain that we received is worth so
much more than what comes out of
the ground. We can use more but so
thankful for what we get.
Several of our members are on va-
cation or going to the doctor or tak-
ing someone somewhere but we still
had a great'day. Sarah Small will be
going back to Illinois next week and
we will miss her as she gets so much
quilting done while she is here. We
will miss her and look forward to see-
'ing our Illinois members back in the
fall.
We are looking forward to our


church luncheon coming up May 1st.
Sometimes we only see friends once
a year but it's always great to see
them. We have held these luncheons
for several years and at one time we
did it twice a year but time changes
things and it'has been changed to the
first Tuesday in May and not in the
fall.
We are having lots of visitors out
that will be going back to the cold
country and we feel sorry for them as
we do have such wonderful weather
so much of the time. Everyday is a
great day and no matter what comes
about our only safety is in our Lord.
Lunch was again so good, chicken
and rice, fried cabbage, macaroni and
cheese, two chicken pot pies, beans,
and the most wonderful strawberry
cake, Marie's homemade bread that
was so good.

Tri-County Relay for Life
Successful
(Countinued from Page pne)
School track when those honored at
the event were announced. The 2007
Relay was held in memory of Mr.
Jack Quincey who passed away on
October 24, 2006. Mr. Quincey was
a native of the area, who was in the
insurance business for 45 years. He
was a very respected member of the
community who worked in several
worthwhile organizations including
Rotary, the Jaycees and the Christian
Coalition. He was a member of Pine
Grove Baptist Church. Through the
years Mr. Quincey was a very active
member of a local church serving
as Deacon, Sunday school teacher
and song leader. His favorite verse
was Philippians 4:13 which reads, "I
can do all things through Christ who
strengtheneth me." He and Bernice
Quincey were married for 45 years
and they have three children Karen,
Kevin and Kyle and three grandchil-
dren.
The Relay for Life was also held in
honor of two Gilchrist County women
who are currently dealing with can-
cer. Connie Sanchez is the Gilchrist
County Supervisor of Elections. Con-
nie is married to Marty Sanchez and
they have one daughter, Ashton. The
Sanchez family lives near Trenton.
The event was also dedicated to Beth
Fowler who worked as a bus driver
for the Gilchrist County School sys-
tem and she also worked in the Bell
High School cafeteria until her illness
prevented her from working. She is
married to Terry Fowler and they
have two sons, Justin and Jared. The
Fowler family lives near Newberry.
Several awards were given at'the
end of the Relay on Saturday morn-
ing. The award for the team that
raised the most money went to the
Gilchrist County Courthouse team,
which raised over $3,300.00, and
they are still collecting money from
several raffles. This is the third year
in a row that the Gilchrist County
Courthouse team raised the most
money.
The Levy County. Courthouse
team won the Team Spirit Award.
Their team even had a member who
rocked the night away sitting on the
edge of the track.
The Best Campsite Award went to
Bunch of Believers who used a Bob's
Diner theme to decorate their camp-
site. Capital City Bank came in sec-
ond with their Capital City Carnies.
The third place team was the Ya Ya
Sisters who were a group of friends
from the Bell area who used a Gyp-
sies theme. These girls even spent a

Bingo night raises funds for Tri-County

Relay for Life


Twenty people attended Bingo Night to help raise funds for the Relay for Life.


.1


Cancer survivor Cristie McMillian was a bingo game winner on Sat-
urday, April 14th.


Bingo night
by CarrieA. Mizell
"Bingo!" Cristie McMillian yelled,
as she waved her winning card in the
air.
McMillian was not the only cancer


survivor who attended the Gilchrist
District Schools Bus Drivers and
Lunchroom Workers Relay for Life
team fundraiser held April 14, eve-
ning at Trenton Elementary Schooll.
Twenty bingo enthusiasts enjoyed


playing 15 games, while feasting on
a variety of refreshments, including
sub sandwiches, chips and cake.
"We need more things like this
in the community," Jody Todd said.
Todd expressed the opinion of many
Players in attendance, according to
Relay team member Kitty Slysofski.
"We held a bingo night on March
24 to raise money for the Relay and
it was very successful. The 25 people
who came out said they wanted to do
it again so here we are," Slysofski
said.
The school bus drivers and lunch-
room workers team held a large yard
sale in Bell recently where they raised
almost $600 for the Relay for Life.
It took team members several weeks
of work to gather items to sell, ac-
cording to Slysofski, who said team
members were looking for a differ-
ent type of fundraiser when someone
suggested bingo.
"We made $210 at the first bingo
night in just three hours," Slysofski
said. "I can't believe the safety patrol
hasn't jumped on this idea. Bingo is a
great fundraiser! Some organization
could host this every month."
The school bus drivers and lunch-
room workers team sold cinnamon
buns and sponsored a scavenger
hunt at the Tri-County Relay for Life
which was held last weekend.

Jody's Hands
How do you begin to know, or even
try to understand
Something so devastating, some-
thing seemingly unplanned.
Such a young precious soul, whom
we all knew and loved.
Meandering down the path of life
with patience, kindness and love.
For if you knew Jody, you knew his
mannerisms and ways
You knew his heart was full, each
and every day.
His tender smile, his quiet being,
his love for family and.friends
If you ever needed anything, on
Jody you could depend.
How do you begin to learn, or even
try to understand
Just look upon your heart, then look
down at your hand.
Jody's hands were very special, but
not everyone would have known
Everything those strong hands did,
may not have always shown.
Little things.that seem so small, but
in fact are quite a feat,
Simple little carvings in soap, turn
out to be so neat.
Jody loved to use his hands you
see, for many different things
Every Wednesday night for the
kids, his hands became their swing.
How do you begin to live, or even
try to understand
,Just have faith in God above and
know it's in His plan.
A nice young man, with a heart
much bigger than his frame
If you were ever around him, you
knew you would never be the same.
His face was tender, with his qiuiet,
gentle smile
His stature was lofty, his heart like
that of a sweet child.
A Christian he was for sure, there is
no doubt whatsoever
Once he gave his life to the Lord, it
was sealed in heaven forever.
Our lives are as opened books, that
people read each and everyday
, Jody's was one of the best, he fol-.
lowed Christ each step of the way.
How do you begin to move on, or
even try to understand
Just look up to heaven, let Jesus

hold your hand.
Jody's hands were similar to
Christ's, for his too, contained a scar
Helping hands he used everyday at
work, or helping the RA's build and
paint their cars.
Hands that loved to restore ole'
tractors, taking time with each small ,
part
Rebuilding it complete, like Christ
does with us, no matter from where
we start.
And let's not forgetjust how much, ^
he loved to hunt for deer
That great big buck, he knew was 4
there, and his time was drawing
near.
How do you begin to look ahead,
or even try to understand
' Just smile, remember Jody, and
remember his big strong hands.
Each day we have is a gift, it is our
choice in what we do with that
Jody spent his with family and
friends, serving Christ with no regret
in it.
His example was one that we
should all follow, and know not to go
it alone.
Even his class ring was a witness
of his love for God, with the cross
right under the stone.
This is how you begin to smile and
now we can all understand
Jody lived by faith, walked with
God, it was all a part of His plan.
Hold on to the memories, look
back and smile, remember the Jody
we all love.
He is in heaven with Jesus and ,
God, he made it.home to heaven
above.
WE LOVE YOU JODY-PODY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
In memory of my brother and
friend, Jody Hart, 4/23/1985- .

Firefighter volunteers
needed in Gilchrist
County
(Continued from Page One)
do this and know that I am helping
out my community," Lee said.
A willingness to give back to the
community often supersedes the
volunteers' need to spend uninter-
rupted time with their families.
"It is a huge commitment. Once
a volunteer gets the initial required
training then they have to fulfill
yearly requirements," Billy Carec-
cia, training officer, said. "I am
teaching a Firefighter 1 class now
that has eight people in it. The vol-
unteers have to come to class on
Tuesday and Thursdays from 6 to
10 p.m. and we rotate a day on the
weekends from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m."
Once the training requirements
have been fulfilled and the volun-
teers receive their certification, the
volunteers then begin to feel like
they are part of a team, according
to Careccia. Inevitably, a personal
commitment to that team and to
this community propels the volun-
teers to respond to calls that come in
24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Ideally, Careccia would like to
see each of Gilchrist County's four
departments have 15 members.
"Many of the volunteers I train go
through all of the course work, test-
ing and physical requirements, then
realize this is not what they want to
do. But they feel such a sense of ac-
complishment at having completed
their certification that they feel like
they can now do anything," Careccia
said. "One guy became an architect!"
For more information on.

volunteer firefighter, call 463-3134.

Church officials reviewed the let-
ter and turned it over to Levy Coun-
ty Sheriffs office. A Levy County
Sheriff's investigator conducted the
investigation with Gilchrist County
Sheriff's office because the law en-
forcement agencies felt the student
was a resident of Gilchrist County.
The letter was reported to have had
students named from Trenton Mid-
dle-High School as well as Chiefland
Middle-High School. The students
idbitified in the letter were not in-
jured as a result of this incident.
Sgt. Scott Tummond of the Levy
County Sheriff's office reported
the student is being held in custody
where he will under go counseling.

Tigers Top Seed entering
District Tournament
(Continued from Page One)
record of 13-5 after defeating Chief-
land 6-1 on Friday night, far better
than the 3-15 effort from 2006.
With a record of 5-1 in District
Play, Trenton earned the top seed
for the District 6-2A Tournament
and will play fourth-seeded Bell in
the district semifinal at 4:00 p.m. on
Tuesday. The winner of that match up
will advance to play the winner of the
Mayo/Branford game on Thursday at
7:00 p.m. for the district title.
In Friday nights season finale, the
Chiefland Indians came calling for a
rematch of a game much earlier in the
season in which the Indians prevailed
3-2. Thanks in large part to an ener-
getic atmosphere at Tiger Field, the
Tigers jumped out to an early lead,
striking for two runs in the bottom
of the first on three straight singles
by C. J. Bowers, Tres Crosby and
Karson Gilbert. From then on, ju-
nior lefty Andy Jones controlled the
game. Jones had control of all pitches
during the first three innings of the
game, allowing only one hitter to
reach base.
In the bottom of the third, the Ti-
gers came to the plate determined to
put the game out of reach. Leadoff
batter, Billy Owens drilled a double
to left. Owens' double was followed
by two straight walks to Jones'and
Bowers. Chiefland's Coach, Kyle
Parnell then decided to bring in Ed-
die Carter to face senior, Tres Crosby.
After working the count to 3-1, Cros-
by promptly launched a fastball over
the left field fence for a grand slam,
extending Trenton's lead to 6-0.
Jones then continued his mastery
of the Indians, holding them hitless
until the sixth inning, and ultimately
surrendering an unearned run. How-
ever, the Tigers held firm in the sev-
enth and Jones struck out shortstop
Brian Hassell to end the game.
Earlier in the week, the Tigers won
close games with Newberry on Mon-
day 4-3 and Hawthorne on Thursday
5-4. In Thursday's game, junior, Kyle
Feather took the mound for the Tigers
and pitched six innings, giving up
three runs on six hits and striking out


five batters. Trey Smith then entered
to pitch the seventh for the Tigers.
Smith earned the save after surren-
dering an unearned run. Leading the
way on offense for the Tigers were
Andy Jones, 3 for 3 and freshman
Karon Gilbert,3 for 4. Sophomore
Ryan Schmitz also had a good night
at the plate, going 2 for 2 with two
runs scored.
The Tigers would like to thank all
those who contributed during this
successful year. There were many
who helped with field maintenance,
concessions, sponsorships, etc. Come
out and support the Tigers as they en-
ter the playoffs which started Tues-
day versus county rival Bell.
Trenton defeated Bell 16-9 with
C.J. Bowers hitting a grand slam as
Trenton scored 12 runs in the 4th and
5th innings to take the lead. Andy.
Jones earned the win as he went to
the mound to relieve Kyle Feather in
the 3rd inning..
Trenton will play the winner of La-
fayette County and Branford Thurs-
day night at 7 p.m. for the District
title.

tage Foundation. As the investigation
continued, officers uncovered seven
more victims.
Investigators say Findley offered
to help low-income families get a
decent home that they would help
to build. Findley took $2,500 from
families as a down payment. He told
them they would be required to work
at least 500 hours on other founda-
tion homes to become a partner in the
program and then their home would
be built with the help of the other
families.
At least 11 families signed con-
tracts and gave Findley a total of
$27,500 but no homes have been
built. Investigators with Agricultural
Law Enforcement 'say Findley made
ongoing excuses as to why the homes
weren't being built and did not give
the victims an opportunity to fulfill
the agreement they signed.
"It is outrageous that these fami-
lies pinned their hope of the Ameri-
can dream on this suspect," Bronson
.said. "Not only did they not get their
homes built, these families who least
can afford it were taken for thousands
of dollars. I hope this arrest sends a
message to scam artists that our Ag-
ricultural Law Enforcement officers
will aggressively investigate and take
-action against those who would harm
our most vulnerable citizens."
Findley has been booked into the
Flagler County Jail. The 11 victims
are from throughout the state, includ-
ing Miami, West Palm Beach, New
Port Richey and Palm Coast. Bron-
son believes there may be additional
victims of the scam as the investiga-
tion is continuing.
The Commissioner is urging any-
one who thinks they may have been
victimized by Findley to call his Of-
fice of Agricultural Law Enforcement
at 1-800-342-5869.
Bronson credited the Flagler Coun-
ty Sheriff's Department and Flagler
County State Attorney's Office for its
assistance in the investigation.
