FRDAP grant will fund Southside City


Park improvements


By Carrie A. Mizell
New restroom facilities, play-
ground equipment and baseball field
lighting will be installed as Trenton's
Southside City Park undergoes cos-
metic changes during the 2007-2008
fiscal year.
According to City Manager Jered
Ottenwess, the city has been awarded
its first $200,000 Florida Recreation
Development Assistance Program
(FRDAP) grant under Senate Bill
2800 for development of Southside
City Park.
The city submitted the FRDAP
grant application to the state in Sep-
tember, 2006, Ottenwess explained
after Parks Advisory Board members
Dot Cuesta, Marjorie Henley, Ja-
mie Gordon, Charlotte Kearney and
Wilbur Bush voted unanimously at a
June 29, 2006 board meeting to apply
for the FRDAP grant.
Included in the application was
an outline cost for each element of
the park revitalization. Estimates
included: Playground equipment
with lighting-$100,000; Baseball
field lighting-$25,000; Restrooms-
$20,000; Parking facilities-$20,000;
Basketball court lighting-$l0,000;
Basketball court-$10,000; Baseball
field-$10,000; Plaground-$4,000;
Picnic facilities-$ 1,000.
"I feel like the playground equip-


ment, parking and restrooms will take
most of the grant money," Ottenwess
said. "Realistically I just don't think
we can do it all."
Southside City Park is one of three
recreation parks within the City of
Trenton. As the most used park,


Southside City Park was naturally
selected as the first park to receive
FRDAP grant funding. In the future,
Ottenwess explained, the Parks Advi-
sory Board will likely submit FRDAP
grant applications for the other two
sites.

Sturgeon collision injures Bell woman


By Carrie A. Mizell
A jumping sturgeon intuoed a Bell
woman Sunday while she was.riding
in a boat on the Suwannee River near
RockBluff.
Tara Spears, 32, of Bell, was a pas-
senger in an 18-foot, 1983 Checkmate
vessel, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) officials. The boat was just
north of Rock Bluff by the County
Road 340 bridge, traveling at a mod-
erate rate of speed when the jumping
sturgeon collided with her, knocking
her unconscious.
Spears was transported to North
Florida Regional Medical Center
in Gainesville by Gilchrist County
emergency medical services with
nori-life-threatening injuries, FWC
officials said on Monday.
Sunday's accident follows a similar
collision that occurred on March 31,
2007, when a St. Petersburg woman
was injured by a jumping sturgeon.
Sharon Touchton, 50, was traveling
north on the Suwannee River, just
upriver from the Wannee Boat Ramp,
on her personal watercraft when she
encountered a jumping sturgeon.
Touchton entered a large curve in the
river at about 25 to 3Q miles per hour.
Other members of her personal wa-
tercraft group had spread themselves
out, so there were no witnesses to the
collision. It was Touchton's husband,
Nick, who was next to enter the curve
who found her floating face-down
in the water, according to FWC of-
ficials. Like Spears, Touchton was
immediately transported to a Gaines-
.ville hospital and treated for serious
but non-life-threatening injuries.
According to FWC officials,, stur-
geons make their annual migration

river to spawn each spring. Biologists

Town Council and Sheriff

strive to increase law

enforcement in Bell


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council invited Gil-
christ County Sheriff David P. Turner
to attend their June regular meeting
to discuss an increase in law enforce-
ment presence in the Town of Bell.
Sheriff Turner thanked the council
for inviting him to attend the meeting
to discuss the needs of the Town of
Bell.
"Why can't we have more law en-
forcement presence in the Town of
Bell?" Councilman Al Powers asked
the sheriff.
The Town of Bell, with approxi-
mately 300 residents, is the third
largest call load area in Gilchrist
County behind the City of Trenton
and the Fanning Springs area. The
Bell area is Zone 2. There were 2500
calls from this area reported in the
Sheriff's Office 2006 Annual Report.
The Sheriff's Office on an average
responds to Zone 2 calls within 11
minutes, according to Sheriff Turner.
"By the time a deputy answers a
call in the Town of Bell, on a prob-,
lem involving a speeding vehicle
through town, the vehicle has already
fled the area," Councilman Powers
explained.
"We don't have the staff to put of-
ficers on duty in the Town of Bell,"


Sheriff Turner said.
Councilman Powers responded,
"Can the Sheriff's Office do a little
more to increase their presence in the
Town of Bell?"
"Sometime ago the Sheriff's of-
fice received calls complaining about
Sheriff's deputies being seen at the
BP convenience store across from
the high school," Sheriff Turner ex-
plained.
Councilman Hugh Sanders asked
the sheriff to again have the deputies
stop in the area to provide a presence
that might slow traffic down in town.
"What do you feel is the busiest
day of the week in the Town of Bell
when the problems occur most of-
ten?" Sheriff Turner asked.
Several councilmen stated that
Friday and Saturday evenings are
the busiest because that is when the
people come to Bell to eat at Akins
Barbecue.
Mayor Darryl Bryan said Monday
morning is the busiest time of the
week in the Town of Bell.
Sheriff Turner explained that Mon-
days between the hours of 9 and 10
a.m. is when his office receives the
majority of calls from the Bell area.
The second busiest time of the week
is during the afternoon hours from 2


Thirty-three children came out to enjoy a morning of fishing on the S wan nee Riiver and participate in the

to 3 p.m., when school kids and buses
get on the roadways.
Councilman Joe Akins asked the
sheriff if deputies live in all the dif-
ferent zones in the county and if so
are they dispatched at different times
from their homes. The Sheriff ex-
plained that the deputies are on patrol
and are dispatched to a call from their
present location.
"I want the deputies out in the
county on patrol instead of sitting
behind a desk at a satellite location,"
Sheriff Turner said. "The patrol depu-
ties are now in a union and this limits
the amount of time they are allowed
to work."
The Sheriff's office has the coun-
ty identified by seven separate pa-
trol zones. The Trenton and Fan-
ning Springs zones have the largest
volume of calls on an average per
month. There are 349 square miles of


area that 12 deputies and two super-
visors are responsible for, according
to Turner.
"There are many incidents that oc-
cur in the Town of Bell that are not
called into the Sheriff's dispatch of-
fice," Councilman Powers said.
"The Town of Bell has some seri-
ous issues and needs; we still have
problems in the community that need
a higher presence of law enforcement
in the community. Deputy Aderholt's
presence in the schools in Bell is not
like being on the streets," Dan Ca-
vanah, town manager said, "What
would it cost the Town of Bell for a
deputy to be on patrol?"
"The starting salary of a deputy
is $30,000, with benefits and other
necessities the salary increases to
$51,000 and with a patrol vehicle
and equipment for the officer the ex-
pense would increase from $81,000


to $84,000 annually," Sheriff Turner
explained.
It is going to take us working to-
gether to show an increased presence
in the Town of Bell, Turner said.
"We need your help and continued
communication to increase visibility
in Bell," he explained.
Sheriff Turner said that in 2002
Gilchrist County had 2553 uniform
traffic citations issued. This number
increased to 3584 traffic citations is-
sued in 2006.
The Florida Highway Patrol is the
leading agency having issued 1839
traffic citations in 2006. Gilchrist
Sheriff's deputies issued 1454 traf-
fic citations while the City of Trenton
was reported to have given 264 traf-
fic citations in 2006.
"If you need us please call," Sher-
iff Turner added.

Newberry's Watermelon Festival Queen works to

promote watermelon around the state
ilIM 0I r as mm


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Jessica Southard of Bronson has
been a very busy young lady since
she was crowned queen of the 62nd
Newberry Watermelon Festival on
May 13. Last week she made a trip
to Tallahassee to promote her favor-
ite fruit during National Watermelon
Week.
Jessica accompanied the Florida
Watermelon Queen Tara Marshburn
of Chipley to the Florida Capitol
grounds where they handed out wa-
termelon slices to the public, capital
employees and legislators. The event
took place at the Fresh From Florida
Gazebo. While in town they also vis-
ited with the Lt. Governor Jeff Kott-
kamp and a group of ROTCs.
"I absolutely love watermelons
and talking to people about them as
I travel around promoting melons.
I have also enjoyed meeting quite
a few area melon growers who are
members of the Florida Watermelon
Association, such as Mr. Billy Smith
in Trenton. I never would have had
that opportunity if I had -not been
chosen as the Newberry Watermelon
Festival Queen," Jessica said. Her
sponsors for the festival queen con-
test were Lee's Grocery and Citgo
and A & B Mobile Repair. ,
The weekend before last she spent a
day at the Chiefland Watermelon fes-
tival where she attended the luncheon
and the queen contest. During that
event she met the Florida, Georgia,
Alabama and National Watermelon
Queens and their coordinators.
Jessica said that she had an advan-
tage over several of the contestants in
the Newberry Watermelon TI eital]
queen contest due to her experience
in Bronson FFA.
"I never dreamed that one day
I would use my -knowledge about
watermelons when I competed in
a queen contest. When I was in 7th
grade my prepared public speaking
contest speech was on the topic of
watermelons. I worked very hard on
that speech doing a lot of research."
Jessica said.
She went on to say that not only
had she gained valuable information
about watermelons but agriculture in
general while in FFA. A s" :.. ,.ar;-. af--

ter competing in the creed contest and
prepared public speaking she moved
on to compete in the extemporaneous
speaking. Extemporaneous speak-
ing requires that the, participants be
presented with a topic and given only
30 minutes to write a speech which
should last from 4 to 6 minutes. Jes-
sica said that as she prepared for this
competition she learned a great deal
about not only rural agriculture but
also agribusiness, agrimarketing and
agriscience. All this knowledge to
draw from made answering the fes-
tival judges' questions very easy for
her. Not only did the queen contes-
tants have to answer judges' ques-
tions but they also entered the seed
-spitting contest and hog-calling con-

test. Jessica said those contests were
quite an experience.
The 17-year-old will be entering her
senior year at Bronson High school
this fall. She has already been voted
the senior class president. In fact, she


may very well hold the school record
for class president since she has con-
secutively held' the class president
position since 7th grade.
Jessica is a Beta club member, and
was named to the National Honors
Society and will serve as the Cap-
tain of the varsity cheerleaders next
school year. She is also an active
member of the youth group at Pine
Grove Baptist Church. If her school
activities are not enough to keep her
busy she owns her own business.
For several years now Jessica has
been lettering race cars. Lettering
race cars began as a hobby for Jessica
and turned into a business.
"My dad has been involved with
racing all my life; until I got into
FFA, racing was all I knew anything
about." She is the daughter of Gary
and Kathi Southard of Bronson. She
owns JSgraphics where she letters
race cars and trucks for local people.
She enjoys designing logos and cus-
tom lettering for her customers.
Her future plans include compet-
ing in the Florida Watermelon Queen
contest which will be held in Febru-
ary 2008.
This week she has hung up her
crown and put on her blue corduroy
jacket to attend the state FFA conven-
tion which is in progress in Orlando.
No matter if she is dressed in her blue
jacket or crown she is happy to pro-
mote watermelons and agriculture in
Florida.

Florida Property Insurance Crisis
Three Questions
1. Why are insurance companies non-renewing your
homeowners policies?
1992 -2006: Florida home insurers paid an estimated $10.4 billion
more in claims than they received in premium.
Florida remains a money-losing proposition for most home insurers.
2. If my insurance company cannot pay for my
hurricane loss, will I be paid?
The Florida Insurance Guaranty Association (FIGA) pays covered claims
up to a maximum amount of $300,000; and for homeowners claims FIGA will
pay an additional $200,000 for damage relating to structure and contents.
3. Is there a solution to the Florida property crisis?
YES!
Hawaii found the solution after Hurricane Iniki struck in 1992. Most
insurers were non-renewing business and were not writing new business.
The solution is a form of the Hawaii Hurricane Relief Fund, which only
wrote coverage for hurricanes as a separate policy.
All other coverages can be written by the industry, which will vigorously
compete for the business.

By Michael Sittig
Prepare to be surprised.
The State budget signed by the
Governor on Thursday, mandates
that local property taxes go up, not
down. Yes, property taxes were just
increased by your State leaders. Yes,
the same ones who are returning next
month to Tallahassee for the sole pur-
pose of lowering your property taxes
just raised them.
In the freshly minted state budget
there is a requirement that the lo-
cal property taxes used to pay for
schools are to be increased by 7.44
percent. In so doing, the state was
able to avoid paying nearly $550 mil-
lion for schools. Instead of finding
that money from their own $71 bil-
lion budget, which is in addition to
the $7 billion it set aside for reserves,
they passed the burden down to prop-
erty owners and increased their local
property taxes.
Many people may not realize that
almost half of the property tax dollars
we pay go to our local school board
to fund K-12 education. Funding our
schools, according to our state consti-
tution, is "the paramount duty of the
state" and as such, we would expect
that the state would fund it. Instead
of meeting this challenge of funding
our schools, the state has been shift-
ing the burden down to local gov-
ernments and has been forcing the
increase in local property taxes. For
example, eight years ago, the state
of Florida paid more than 60% of
the total amount needed to fund lo-
cal schools. But during that time the
state began slowly shifting the burden
down to local school boards. Today,
the state pays less than half (45%)
and requires that the rest comes from
local property taxes. The net effect is
that local property taxes go up to pay
for schools. ,
Said a different way,, during the
same eight year period, the state has
increased its share by less than a per-
cent but have required local property
taxes to nearly double to make up the
difference. Every Legislator who
voted for the State budget voted for
this.
For the record, we understand and
sympathize with the need to increase
education funding. Costs of build-
ing schools, providing hurricane in-
surance, paying teachers, and even
paying for the health care of school
employees have all increased sig-
nificantly. These are real costs to
provide real services to real people.
Great cities make for a Great State
and you do not have Great cities
without Great schools. You do not
have Great schools without proper
funding.
But, just like the school and state
governments, city governments have
also faced significant cost increases
for the services we provide. Salaries
and benefits for police and fire work-


ers (even the new ones mandated by
the State this year without funding),
the costs of providing expanded wa-
ter and sewer services, ambulances,
homeless shelters, storm water hold-
ing ponds, to name just a few, have
all escalated in their costs to build
and operate. We all must recognize
that cities must purchase expensive
property insurance and expensive
gas needed for fire trucks, garbage
trucks, and police cars. We are work-
ing hard, and are finding even more
cost-effective ways, to provide these
needed services. In fact, most cities
try to meet these rising costs with-
out raising the State-designed prop-
erty tax because it is so unfair. The
past ten years show average annual
growth of municipal spending was
only 6.9%.
The point is; we all support a fair
property tax and new homeowners
and businesses really deserve relief,
but how can state lawmakers man-
date increases in local property taxes
while at the same time issuing a clari-
on call for reductions? We would ask
lawmakers; make the property tax
fair and if they want to cut revenues
to cities, they should also cut out the
things they require us to do and' cut
out all the things they require us to
pay for with the local property tax.
That would be fair and it would be
sensible. It would also be surpris-
ing.

rector of the Florida League of Cit-

Redd; sister, Madison; brother, Har-
rison; dog, Mary Jane.
School: Soon-to-be seventh grad-

School. 1 like middle school better
than elementary school even though
it's a longer day it seems shorter be-
cause we're moving class to class.
Summer plans: I'm going to FFA
state convention this week. I want
to go to every volleyball camp I can
get into and softball camps. Really
I just want to hang out on the river,
that's what I like to do best.
Favorite food: Cheese

Favorite book: "Where the Red
Fern Grows" and "Old Yeller"
Like: Swimming and playing
sports.
Dislike: Running. I don't like run-
ning a whole lot and I hate squash.
Who is your hero? My Ga Ga.
She's my dad's mom, Patricia Redd.
Everyone says I take after her a lot.
She lives close by so I get to see her
more than I do my other grandpar-
ents. She always comes to all my
games and every time we go over to
her house we always go out to eat.
What is something not many
people know about you? I eat a
lot...I'm a pig! I can eat a whole
foot long in a very short time.
In the future: I want to go to

an office; that way we can share the
profits and I won't have to work all
the time. And I love babies. I want
to have four one day and live in a
big field so I can have horses and
lots of animals.
What do you like about living
in Gilchrist County? Everybody
knows everybody. I like that every-
one you know lives nearby. My best
friend Kaylee Crawford doesn't live
too far from my house.
Is it hard being the oldest?
Sometimes it is, when Mattie and I
get in trouble my parents always say,
"You're the oldest and you should
know better Emma Kate."
Goals: I'm working to get all A's.
I've made it through school so far
and not gotten a B yet.

I have a question for you. If you can
invest in companies with excellent
track records, using a discount
brokerage house where you pay a
one-time commission per trade of less
than $10, and hold those investments
undisturbed for a year and chalk up
annual returns in excess of what the
major indexes do, why do so many of
you want to make this investing thing
so difficult?
Notice that I said nothing about
trading stocks, or having your
portfolio hang around your neck like
the proverbial albatross, or buying
mutual funds, or receiving "help"
from your friendly stock broker, or
tips from Uncle Joe. You simply pick
out companies that you know and
understand, that have a track record
of earnings and whose future you,
yourself, can foresee.
Understand that the emphasis is on
you, not what someone else says might
or might not happen. You want to train
yourself to stay focused on finding
companies that are outgunning their
competition because they are hard at
work at improving their positions in,
the marketplace.
Does that mean that every company
you select is going to turn in an
outstanding performance, year after


What Are You Looking For In A Church?
(Kent Heaton)


The freedom of investigation is a powerful tool to find
what we want in life. What do you look for when you are
searching for a church home? 'Do you use the power of
investigation to search out the different types of churches
in the area and what makes them unique? How
wonderful it is to live in a country that allows freedom of
investigation in religion.
What do you look for in a church? Many people look
for fun and recreation. Others look for acceptance within
the roles of society. Some look for a church that will give
answers to all the questions in life. There are those who
look for deeper meaning within the framework. of the
church. Everyone comes looking for different things in a
church. What do you find when you look for a church?
The answers are legion because with the diversity of
religions in America, you can find almost any group of
worshippers that would give acceptance to any type of
theology.
How do you answer, "What are you looking for in a
church?" Is it possible to respond to that question from
the perspective of the individual? Should this question be
answered from the view of God or man? What is the
type of church you are looking for? Who is to answer the
inquiry? How can we determine the answer to such
puzzling questions? The apostle Paul wrote, "All
scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is
profitable for doctrine, for reproof for correction, for
instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may
be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work."
(2 Timothy 3:16,17) The answer is within the pages of
God's word.
What you should look for in a church is what is found
in God's word. When we begin to measure our desires


and wants with what we look for in a church, we will
find what we are looking for. Did you hear that? It is'
not what God wants but we find what we are looking
for. Jesus did not purchase the church with His blood
(Acts 20:28) so that we could pattern the church anyway
we choose. The church that is God's church is the
church patterned after His will and His will alone.
The church of the New Testament is not a church that
draws people with recreation, fun 'and games.
(Ephesians 3:9-11) It is not an organization that seeks to
please the ears of men (2 Timothy 4:1-4) and to make
them feel comfortable in their sin. (1 Corinthians 5).
The bride of Christ (Ephesians 5:22-33) is not given to
men to spoil with their dogmas and doctrines of
self-seeking wants.
Are you looking for a church that is based upon the
teachings of the Bible and not men? Are you looking for
a church that is patterned after the worship of the New
Testament? Will you look for a group of people who
want to speak where the Bible speaks in every thing
they do? Would you be willing to find a church that is
open to investigation and seeks those who want to ask
questions and discuss the Bible together? Is it possible
to find a church that 'cares about the souls of people .
more than their stomachs or pocket books? Can you
find a church that will not allow sin to be excused nor
condoned? Are you looking for a church that is founded
on love and devotion to the cause of Jesus Christ? What
are you looking for? We want to help!
The Trenton Church of Christ welcomes you to visit
with us investigate, ask, seek, inquire, learn help us
learn the true paths of God's holy will. We look forward
to meeting you.

year? No, of course not, especially
if you only take into consideration a
single one-year period. However, if
you are careful in your selection you
are likely to outperform most mutual
funds and indexes over most any 3-
to-5 year period.
That conclusion is based on more
than four decades (Ouch!) of Wall
Street experience, which is why I
am continually saying that it is more
difficult to lose money on Wall Street
than it is to make money.
By now you are probably asking
yourself why I don't provide you
with an example of just such a
company. Great idea and I cannot
think of a better example than Smith
International, a company that I have
not discussed previously.
Smith is a manufacturer of
premium drill bits, drilling fluids, and
,related products. Its Services division
offers drilling-related services M-I
SWACO, %% which is 60 percent owned
by Smith, sells fluids used to cool and
lubricate drill bits and prevent pipes
from clogging. The Wilson division
provides pipes and fittings, while its
Technologies divisioA produces drill
bits and other drilling equipment.
More importantly, the company's
share price has quadrupled over the
past ten years, while the S&P 500
index hasn't quite doubled. See what
I mean.
Smith recently posted net income
for its first quarter of $160.2 million,
or 80 cents per share, on revenues of
$2.11 billion. That number includes
a four-cent tax credit. If you exclude
the. impact of the non-recurring
credit, then net income came in at
$152.7 million or 76 cents per share,
as compared to $107.2 million, or 53
cents per share, on revenues of $1.68
billion a year ago;

We have the most beautiful row
of eggplants inf our garden this sum-
mer that I do believe I've ever seen.
No kidding, they are about waist
high and just loaded with baby egg-
plants and blossoms. Eggplants need
a warm growing season so of course
they thrive in Florida. They have a
growing season of 100-150 days in
ideal conditions. They also prefer
well drained sandy loam soil with a
pH of 5.5 to.6.5.
I've always considered the egg-
plant a vegetable, but it turns that
the eggplant is really a fruit, in fact,
it's a berry. Eggplants along with the
tomato, potato and tobacco are all
members of the Nightshade family of
plants.
When buying eggplants in the store
make sure they are firm; when they are
real soft that could be a sure sign that
they are old. A one-pound eggplant
will equal about 4-1/2 cups when cut
up. Before cooking eggplants many
people peel and slice them up and let
them soak for 30 minutes to an hour
before cooking. This soaking is sup-
posed to take away the bitter taste
that eggplants sometimes have.

Most serious Southern cooks have
a recipe for fried eggplant and the
following is very close to the one
used by the Dillard House Restaurant
in northeast Georgia. The Dillard
House has been serving old fashioned
Southern style cooking family at their
restaurant since 1916 when the late

of 15 percent, which assumes an
additional 3 percentage points above
the historical return on the S&P 500 of
11 percent to allow for the additional
risk found in energy shares, and an
earnings growth rate of 18 percent,
yields a value of $91 per share.
Using the more conservative free
cash flow to the firm approach. with
the same growth rate, produces an
intrinsic value of $75 per share.
Yes, Smith has traditionally had a
higher earnings growth rate than 18
percent and a 15 percent discount
rate is higher than I normally use.
However, when dealing with energy
stocks in general and those involved
with drilling in particular, you want
to tread cautiously and use ultra
conservative numbers.
My full year earnings estimate
for Smith is $3.22 per share with a
target price on the shares of $69, for
an annualized gain of 21 percent over
the next 6-7 months, which equates to
an annualized return of 46 percent.

Carrie Dillard opened her boarding
house call Oaklawn in the same loca-
tion as the current restaurant.
In an interview I read, Earl and.
Henry Dillard, the sons of Carrie Dil-
lard, revealed that their mother had
a dinner bell at the Dillard House
which was located close to the Bap-
tist Church. Everyday at about 10 till
noon Mrs. Dillard would ring the bell
to let her boarders know that it was
time to come to dinner aka lunch.
The Dillard brothers said, one Sun-
day the Baptist preacher came over
and said, "I wish you wouldn't ring
that bell 'til noon 'cause when you do
it just tears up my congregation." But
he never ran overtime.




1 eggplant, peeled and cut in 1/4
inch thick round slices-
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 eggs beaten
1 cup cracker crumbs
1 cup vegetable oil
Soak eggplant slices in salted wa-
ter for 30 minutes. Drain and wipe dry
with paper towels. Dredge each slice
in flour, then in beaten egg, and roll
in cracker crumbs. Heat oil in heavy
iron frying pan until hot enough to
fry. Then fry eggplants, don't add but
two or three slices at a time to oil.
When golden brown remove from oil
and drain on paper towels.




1 good sized eggplant, peeled and
cubed
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 cup buttered bread crumbs
Cook eggplant in boiling salted wa-
ter until tender. Drain eggplant well
and mash. Melt butter in frying pan
"and cook chopped onions until ten-
der. Mix eggplants and onions, with
cheese, soup, mayonnaise and 1/3
cup of the buttered bread crumbs.
Pour into greased casserole dish and
top with the remain 2/3 cup of but-
tered bread crumbs. Bake 350 de-
grees until lightly browned on top for
20 to 30 minutes.
To make buttered bread crumbs
either grate or put about 4 slices of
bread in food processor with knife
blade. Turn processor on and off a
couple of times and you will have
wonderful soft breadcrumbs. Melt
1/4 to 1/2 stick of butterand mix with
.bread crumbs. These buttered bread
crumbs are good on top of almost any
casserole.

While there are a lot of things to think about today, let us take time to remember one
of our great national symbols, our flag.
Though the origin of Flag Day dates back to the late 19th century, its inspiration
takes us further back to 1777. On June 14th of that year, in Philadelphia, the Continental
Congress passed a resolution specifying that the flag carry 13 stripes and 13 stars. The
colors would represent hardiness and valor (red), purity and innocence (white), and
vigilance, perseverance and justice (blue).
The concept of a specific day to annually recognize the American Flag came 108
years later. In 1885, a Fredonia, Wisconsin school teacher, B. J. Cigrand, .arranged for
the students in his school district to observe the resolution on June 14th as 'Flag
Birthday'. In 1889, George Balch, a kindergarten teacher in New York City, planned
similar festivities for his school's students. In 1893, Philadelphia became the first city to
celebrate Flag Day, and in the following year, New York was the first state to observe
June 14th. After decades of expanding community observances, President Woodrow
Wilson established Flag Day on May 30, 1916.
Still many communities did not celebrate Flag Day. It wasn't until 1949, when
President Harry Truman signed into an Act of Congress that National Flag Day be
observed every June 14th. Since then the President proclaims the commemoration
yearly, and encourages all Americans in the country to display the Stars and Stripes
outside their homes and businesses. Individual states determine how they will observe
the day. The Unites States Flag Code, as adopted by Congress, states "The flag
represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing." This is why we
should give the flag our full respect.
Please remember our troops serving in our armed forces to whom the very sight of
our "grand old flag" is so very special. Many are in harms way as I write this. Keep
them and their families in your thoughts and prayers. And, yes, say a little extra one for
this great nation of ours for which they gallantly serve.
The June 21st meeting of Post 91 in Trenton will be an installation of officers for the
post and auxiliary. Members are encouraged to bring a covered dish for dinner at 5:30
p.m. followed by the installation meeting at 7 p.m.
Post 149 continues to meet the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. in Newberry.

The AARP Driver Safety Program
volunteer instructors of Levy, Dixie
and Citrus counties attended a work-
shop April. 25, 2007 at the First Pres-
byterian Church of Crystal River.
The basic objective is promoting
traffic safety awareness with a course
designed for mature drivers aged 50
and older. The eight-hour classroom
refresher is taught four hours each


day over a two-day period and upon
completion the participant may be el-
igible for an auto insurance discount.
An excellent workbook and video
presentation may answer such ques-
tions as: How does the aging process
affect my driving? What is the recom-
mended way to keep a safe following
distance? Which drugs and medica-
tions could cause problems for me


behind the wheel?.What are the dan-
ger spots in a parking lot? When am I
expected to yield the right-of-way?
If any person and/or group is in-
terested in having a class conducted
at their church, community orga-
nization, seniors club, etc., contact
Charlie Lucente at 352-726-0753 for
details.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


On the left is Goldie McHenry and on the right is Martha Asbell, great
quilters. Goldie is 92 and Martha is 86. We all pray that as we get old-
er we can do as they do and Martha does the most beautiful crocheting.


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
June 7th at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Many crafts, quilts and
what have you, are being finished,
brought in and pictures taken. Marie
Johnson who lives in Dunnellon has
finished a sampler Quillow in beauti-
ful color. This is the first time we have
seen one using quilt blocks. Joyce
Hamilton has finished her Christ-
mas Quilt. Peggy Mayo was in to
put a quilt in the frame. It must have
over 1000 pieces in it. The squares
are made from 1 1/4 inch blocks and
each block is just 3x3. She surely has
lots of patience. We hope it goes to
the fair.
. I want to commend Pam Johnson
'for doing a great job at the Water-
melon Festival. We know the rains,
came that we needed so bad, but the


contests that were held at the Usher
Center and the Woman's Club went
off so great. Barbara Lunsford is
still in the hospital and her daughter
Becky was to take over this year but
she was taking care of her mother
and that left Pam to take over. There
is much to put on a festival and for.
someone who had never done it. She
was great.
Nick and 6 boys were out Wednes-
day to mow and do all the things we
need doing. They also cleaned the
kitchen and washed rugs. Thanks
Lancaster.
Lunch was so good with rice, po-
tato salad, fried squash, cheese pota-
toes, beans, salads, Marie's? Betty's
lemon pie and much more. 20 pres-

Day Trip to R.O.
By Carrie A. Mizell
If gas is too expensive to accom-
modate summer travel plans this year
then saddle up the horse for a sum-
mer trail ride at the new Crossway
Branch Trailhead at R.O. Ranch, a
2,500-acre equestrian park being de-
veloped in north central Florida.
Located between Mayo and Stein-
hatchee in Cook's Hammock, R.O.
Ranch offers riders 15 miles of trail,
featuring three major trails and sev-
eral cross trails. Open seven days a
week, from sun-up to sun down, the
property boasts two major creeks:
Crossway Branch and Owl Creek,
both run through the property and
feed into the Steinhatchee River.
Each rider must fill out a self per- Lafayet

Five area 4-H club members took
up their needles last week for the
ninth annual Summer Sewing Camp
hosted by the Springhouse Quilters
Guild.
Elaine Faison, who recently re-
tired from the Gilchrist County
Extension Office, had focused on
working with 4-H'ers during her 25
years of service, and continues her
instruction each summer at the 4-H
Summer Sewing Camp. A group of
ladies from the Springhouse Quil-
ters Guild assisted Faison in teach-
ing the young 4-H'ers.
The advanced course was open to
4-H club members who had attend-
ed two or more years of 4-H se\% ing
camp in the past.
"The girls in this ad'. danced group

inchise agreement with Central Florida


Electric Cooperative


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Town Council considered
the Central Florida Electric Coopera-
tive franchise electric agreement, or-
dinance No. 2007-04, in final reading
during their June regular meeting.
The town council has been charg-
ing a 4 percent rate to electric co-
operative customers within the Bell
municipality.
John Hudson, representing the
Chiefland-based cooperative, told the


council that Central Florida Electric
Cooperative (CFEC) would like to
have a longer agreement than the pre-
viously approved five year term. He
explained that CFEC has franchise
agreements with many municipali-
ties in north central Florida and these
agreements range from 3-6 percent.
The town council discussed and is
now considering increasing the rate
of the agreement to 6 percent based
on 10 years. A board member asked


Hudson if the Town of Bell approves
.an agreement for 10 years, could the
board reduce the length of time on
the ordinance before the term of the
agreement is completed.
David M. Lang, Town of Bell at-
torney recommended the council ap-
prove a shorter-term agreement in-
stead of trying to amend an ordinance
that is already finalized.
Councilman Al Powers made a mo-


tion to approve ordinance 2007-04
for a term of five years at 6 percent.
The council approved the action by a
unanimous vote.
John Hudson reported to the coun-
cil that Central Florida Electric Co-
operative will be opening a satellite
office in Bell in the near future. This
office will be open three days a week
to assist customers with service and
to make paying accounts easier.
