Personality

of the Month


Luanne Young
By Geneva Cornwell
Leadership qualities are essential
elements in a society, in a community
and in a family. Leadership entails
correct guidance so those who fol-
low will understand what needs to
be done in accomplishing a certain
goal. There's an old saying that bears
repeating: "Many hands make light
work"; but there must be one who
leads those "many hands." Strong
leadership sometimes requires hold-
ing a little one's hand or that of the
elderly or showing the way or, better
yet, being a pioneer in a new avenue,
by going first.
The character quality for tie month
of June is definitely a leadership
quality. It requires a construction of
thought so that one part may cooper-
ate with another. This quality is none
other than organization. One who has
the leadership quality of being an or-
ganizer, visualizes final results and
directs resources for the successful
completion of goals. The organizer
has a natural gift of reducing a sys-
tem in appropriate parts in order to
produce united action to one end,
which is done by soliciting the talents
of others so the whole may act as one
body in completing a project.
The Character Council of Gilchrist
County has selected Mrs. Luanne
Young as its personality of the month
for her gifting as an organizer. Luanne
came to Gilchrist County by way of
Minnesota as she sought a nice place
to vacation. She decided to stay and
moved here in 1989. She married her
husband, Joseph, in 1991. Because
Lu (as she is affectionately called)
4 is very family oriented, and after
her children began attending school,
she saw the need to be involved with
their education, so, in 2001, she be-
gan working as a substitute teacher at
Bell Elementary School. She is also
the Character Education Liaison hav-
ing been a great instrument in mov-
ing Character Education, forward by
using her many and varied organiza-
tional skills and innovative ideas.
Through Mrs. Young's interest in
gardening and with her knowledge
-and skill in the use of hand and con-
struction tools, she has taught her
children much about the need to be
organized. The Young family lives on
a 12-acre tree farm, and as they work
together they have built an add-on to
their house for Lu's mother, raised
flower beds and alean-to shed, among
other family projects. Mrs. Young re-

Bell FFA men

II State Vice.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Up until Jeffrey Williams' name
was announced last week as 2007-
2008 Area II State Vice President
it had been many years since a Bell
FFA member had been elected to
the Florida FFA state officer team.
The face of agriculture has cer-
tainly changed over the years since
C.D. Moore, of Bell was elected a
Florida FFA state officer.
Like Moore, it is unlikely that
Williams, a six year member of the
Bell FFA Chapter, will forget his
Gilchrist County roots in the coming
year as he works to promote Florida
agriculture and FFA throughout the
state of Florida and the nation.
"I've already been warned that
over the next 365 days I will likely
only spend 65 days at home. I don't
know about that," Williams said.
"But I do know that every chance
I get I will come home and spend
time with my family and friends."
Boisterous applause for Wil-
liams' came last Friday morning at
the 79th Florida FFA State Conven-
tion held at the Wyndham Orlando
Resort. With tears rolling down his
face, Williams' took the stage with
a bright smile despite being over-
come with emotion at hearing his
name called.
It had been a hard week for both
Williams and his competitor Kaleb
Clyatt of Lake Butler Sr. FFA. Rep-
resenting districts from throughout
the state, Williams and Clyatt were
just two of 14 FFA members vying
for spots on the 2007-2008 state of-
ficer team. The convention meant
a grueling four days for the candi-
dates, all of whom worked tireless-
ly passing out business cards and
resumes, while shaking hands with
FFA members in attendance.
"It was crazy! Convention was
mentally, physically and emotion-
ally exhausting," Williams said.
"It was the best/worst week of my
life."
Tension reached its peak for Wil-
liams and Clyatt on Thursday. Not
long after votes from Area II del-
egates, representing 43 chapters
throughout north central Florida,
had been cast, both Williams and
Clyatt were called into a private
meeting with state FFA officials.
The candidates were told that for
the first time in Florida FFA history,
there had been a glitch during the
voting. A run-off would need to be
held on Thursday evening to rem-
edy the situation. From 6 to 7 p.m.
delegates were told to come back in
and vote.
"At that' point our future was
sealed. We would finally know if
we were meant to go on to college
or spend the next year traveling
around,the state promoting Florida
agriculture," Williams said.

Pete Belanger is one of the' few,
from the class of 1987, who went
from Kindergarten through the 12th
grade at Trenton, back when it was,
Trenton Elementary and Trenton
High School'.
Pete enlisted in.the Ma- .
rine Corps' delayed entry jj-
program in June of 1986. ,i
He was .one of the four i
from his class to enlist in
the Marine Corps. He went
to recruit training 10 days
after graduating from Tren-
ton High and as they say,
the rest is history.
Pete was in an artillery battery
for his first four years in the Marine:
Corps. While there they toured the
Mediterranean Sea, Europe and Puer-
to Rico twice. In 1990 Pete became:
an aircraft engine mechanic on the:
Harrier Jet.
Pete moved to Arizona in 1991.
While he was, there he toured Japan
and Hawaii twice. During the time in
Arizona, from 1991 1996 Pete met
his wife, got married in 1993, and he
and Shirley had a baby boy in 1995.
Pete was stationed in North Caro-
lina in late 1996.
He had the opportunity of becom-
ing a Marine Corps Recruiter from
1998-2001 in South Carolina and


nber elected 2007-2008 Area Groundbreaking for new

President I Emergency Operations

SI Center is June 27


Jeffrey Williams received a warm welcome from Bell High School on
Sat i dia upon his return from the Florida FFA State Convention.


A tabulation of votes from the run-
off clearly showed Williams as the,
District II winner. Bell FFA Chapter
members and 'advisors Bill Martin
and Debbie Jones were delighted to
hear the news.
"The Bell FFA Chapter is proud to
have Jeffrey representing us as a state
officer this year," Martin said.
Despite the tense moments of un-
certainty, Williams said he greatly
enjoyed the time he spent running
through the crowds working before
each session to pump up FFA mem-
bers from throughout the state.
Another high point for Williams,
was when he and fellow Bell Sr. FFA
member, Lindsey Martin took the
convention stage to sing "Everything
to Me" by Brooke Hogan during a
talent competition. The pair placed
third out of 25 performers.
Williams was also onstage Friday
morning accepting his State FFA De-
gree.
"Nothing beats me sitting on the
edge of my seat, suspenseful Jaws
type music playing in the back-
ground, as the winners' names were
announced. I was crying like,. a girl
before they even called my name. I
cried like I was at a funeral. I was go-
ing crazy!" Williams said. "Once the
announcer called out 'Bell Sr. FFA'
the crowd just went crazy."
An installation ceremony was then
held for the 80th Florida FFA state of-
ficer team which includes: President-
Hilary. Webb of Charlotte FFA; Sec-
retary-Jamie Fussell of DeSoto FFA;
Area I State Vice President-Amy
Johnson of Marianna FFA; Area II
State Vice President-Jeffrey Williams
of Bell FFA; Area III State Vice Pres-
ident-Shannon Craig of New Smyrna
Beach FFA; Area IV State Vice Pres-
ident-Jeanette Hicks of Lake Wales
FFA; Area V State Vice President-
Erika Barth of Sickles FFA; Area VI
State Vice President Kara Cozine of
Fort Pierce Westwood FFA.
Upon returning home to Bell, Wil-
liams said he hit his bed so hard it


broke. He could hardl-.\ wait to get
some sleep. On Monday morning, a
well rested Williams returned to the
road. He was scheduled to attend
"BLAST Off" a four day session of
state officer training held in Haines
City this week.
Though Williams is just a few
days into his office, he has already
set forth goals for the year. Those
goals include: Reaching every sin-
gle chapter in Area II. While he be-
lieves that Area II is a very compet-
itive district in the state, Williams
said he feels that FFA members in'
Area II should be competitive while
still practicing brotherhood by be-
ing happy for each chapter's ac-
complishments.
"I look at this year as .a new book.
It is my choice to start writing in it.
This means I am one step closer to
achieving my dream of becoming
a national FFA officer," Williams
said. "I have had the opportunity
over the past five years to serve my
chapter and my community, now I
have the opportunity to serve the
area and this state."
A Tampa native, Williams' fam-
ily moved to Bell when he was in
seventh grade. Initially he had a
difficult time adjusting to rural life,
according to his mother Lisa, but
with the help of FFA advisors Deb-
bie Jones and Bill Martin working
to help Williams discover his love
for FFA, the young teenager quick-
ly turned his life around and began
setting goals within the organiza-
tion.
"My son faced a lot of obstacles
being from the city, but he truly
loves this organization from his
heart. It's not about having animals
or a huge farm, it's about the mem-
bers," Lisa said proudly. "He's 18
years old and he has never been
in trouble. He keeps telling me he
wants to do a good job this year and
that one day he wants to be gover-
nor. I just say to him, 'You can do
anything!"'

The Gilchrist County Commission
and the Department of Public Safety
invite everyone to attend the ground-
breaking ceremony of the new Emer-
gency Operations Center on Wednes-
day, June 27 at 10:00 a.m. The new
EOC facility will be located north
of Bell just south of the Emergency
Medical Service station on US 129.
"We are very proud and excited
about the new endeavors that Gil-
christ County is embarking upon and
we would like for you to come cele-
brate with us. Hope to see you there,"
said Commission Chairman Randy
Durden.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen gave the four-mem-
ber board the latest information in-.
volving grants and funds budgeted to
complete this new complex. Gilchrist
County received grants and budgeted
funds for the estimated $1',250,000
project. McQueen told the board that
the grant funds and revenues budget-
ed had been increased to $1,340,179.
He also told the board that estimates
for the site preparation to prepare the
sandy, hilly location had increased
and that the time to finish the proj-


ect had become a top priority. There
are specific grant funds that are be-
ing used to complete this project so
it must be finished by December 27,
2007.
McQueen explained to the board
that the site preparation estimates
came back higher than originally
estimated. He explained that Public
Safety Director Carlos Perez has pro-
posed budgeting $295,000 from the
2007-2008 Public Safety Department
budget in order to cover the estimated
increased cost of the project. Lloyd
Kelly, president of The Alexander
Group, told the board on Monday
that cost of the entire project would
not exceed $1,635,635.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to approve the con-
struction of the Emergency Opera-
tions Center at a cost not to exceed
$1,635,635. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas explained that he was not go-
ing to let these grant funds get away
as he gave a second to the motion.
The board voted 4-0 in favor of cori-
structing the EOC facility. The board
instructed the Alexander Group to
move forward immediately.


U.S. 129 reconstruction

scheduled to start Monday


Submitted
An 11-mile section of U.S. 129 be-
tween the town of Bell and the Su-
wannee County line is scheduled to
be reconstructed starting Monday,
June 25, announced the Florida De-
partment of Transportation (FDOT)
Public Information Office.
The FDOT has hired Anderson Co-
lumbia Company, Inc of Lake City to
do the work which includes:
-Reconstructing the roadway be-"
tween Northwest 25th Street and
Northwest 43rd Place to provide bet-
ter sight distance for motorists by
lowering or raising the existing road-
way to adjust for the hilly terrain.
-Removing and replacing the exist-
ing pavement.
-Adding turn lanes at County
Roads 340 and 138.
-Paving 18 side street entrances.
-Replacing or extending existing
drainage pipes to meet current stan-
dards.

ramps to ilie sidewalk in Bell.
-Replacing existing guardrail.
-Replacing mailboxes to meet cur-
rent standards.
Motorists may encounter one mile
lane closures between 8:30 a.m. and
6:30 p.m. during construction, with
flaggers directing traffic. Recon-
struction work will require vehicles
to detour to County Road 236 (NW
20th Street), County Road 341 and
County Road 340 for about two
months. The project is expected to
be complete, barring any unforeseen
conditions such as bad weather, by

Commission tables further action on new jail Trenton FFA names STARS at annual parent/


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
met with the proposed new jail con-
struction team of Peter Brown Con-
struction, Inc., CRA Architects and
staff to discuss the details and esti-
mates of the proposed new 107-bed
Gilchrist County Jail.
A representative from PBC ex-
plained to the board that the design
engineering team had gone to work
on the jail design after a recent meet-
ing with the Gilchrist County Correc-
tions committee to reduce the num-
ber of beds and the administration
facility to bring the project into the
estimated $6 million budget.
When the team reduced the com-

ity for future growth, according to the
PBC representative,
The representative gave the board
three different proposals to review in
the Monday, June 18 meeting. The
board reviewed the three options and
determined that option A was the best
proposal for Gilchrist County.
This option will give the county a
current bed count of 108 with future
expansion up to 176.
Sheriff Turner told the board that
the existing 48-bed facility is at
maximum capacity and the county is
having to pay both Levy and Dixie
Counties to house additional inmates.
Turner pointed out that the county
averages between 50 and 60 inmates
on their daily count and a facility pro-
jected for 107 beds would be the least
to consider due .to the current growth
rate. The PBC representative ex-
plained that the design team has tried
to reduce the estimated cost, but was
unable to get the projected estimates
below $8.4 million.
The commission discussed the pos-
sibility of grant revenues that might
help meet these increased costs.
County Administrator Ron McQueen
pointed out that he had searched for
grant revenues for the jail complex
but was unable to identify any pos-
sibilities.
Sheriff Turner explained that fed-
eral inmate contracts are available,


but these funds can't be budgeted for
construction costs.
The board is willing to consider the
proposed option A, but is unwilling
to adopt any of the proposals due to a
lack of funds to pay for the proposed
project.
Sheriff Turner told the board that
option A would require an additional
12 employees to operate the facility.
He explained that a base rate of $50K
each from General Revenue funds
would be an additional estimated.
$600,000 of recurring expense.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to have the County
Correctional committee continue
to review proposals and to consider
alternatives up until the county has
a better idea of the financial condi-
tion they are in after the 3 percent
tax reform reduction and the pro-
posed Super Homestead referendum,
that will go before the Florida voters
January 27, 2008. Commissioner
Kenrick Thomas also was in favor of
the motion as he provided a second.
The board voted 4-0 in favor of the
proposal.
The board explained to the design
team that they were in favor of option
A, but were unable to determine the
long term financial condition of the
county until the tax reform referen-
dum is finalized.

After recent rainfall, Agriculture Commissioner lifts statewide burn ban.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Homeowners can once again burn
yard waste on their property after
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles Bronson lifted a statewide
burn ban last week that had been in
place because of extreme drought.
"Because recent rainfall has sig-
nificantly reduced our statewide
wildfire danger," Bronson stated in a
press release, "I am directing the Di-
vision of Forestry to once again allow
yard waste burning by homeowners.
Locally, conditions can change in a
matter of days, so I am asking that
Floridians be very careful with all
outdoor fires."
As of Friday, Gilchrist County
rated a 461 score on the Keetch By-
ram Drought Index. The scale ranges

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.
FLORIDA CANNOT AFFORD TO WAIT the time to act is now.
Call your state representative and state senator to urge them to suppo.rn a H-i.- v.,a"- pC
plan for Florida TODAY!

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


By: John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
is' beginning to read the handwriting
onr the wall after the Legislative Spe-
cial Session on Tax Reform identified
-that county government would re-
duice their 2007-08 budgets from 3%
to 9% depending on the specifics.
Gilchrist County has been advised
that they would be impacted by 3% at
this time, and if the Super Homestead
exemption were approved by 60% of
the Florida voters in January 2008,
Gilchrist County would stand to lose
up to $1.7 million from the 2008-
2009 budgets.
The Gilchrist County Commission
has almost completed the courthouse
expansion that was predominately
p'tmd for by grants and other non-gen-
eral fund revenues.
Gilchrist County has approved the
beginning of a building project to
construct a new EOC facility that has
also received grant revenues that are
proposed to pay for 75-85% of the es-
. timated $1.6 million dollar construc-
tion.
On Monday afternoon the four-
member board of commissioners was
unable to reach a reasonable deci-
sion on where the revenues would
come from to pay for this new cor-
rections facility. The estimates on the
proposed construction were coming
back in proposals projected to not,


Letter to the Editor
I cannot idly sit here with pen in
,hand and not comment about the
negativism of Mr. D. Ray Harrison's
logic to a long overdue and necessary
Animal shelter.
It seems to me that Mr. Harrison
believes the roads aren't repaired be-
cause of the shelter, which by the way
the construction cost is much less
than that of a small new house. But
why stop there? Perhaps our property
taxes, gas prices, and insurance rates
can also be blamed on the shelter.
'Sounds childish and naive when one
thinks about it.
Do we as taxpayers pay for the days
that you did not attend meetings; if
so, would that money be better used
for road improvements rather than
your pocket? I am disappointed in
your conclusions and reasoning. In-
cidentally, do we have a pet friendly
shelter to use in the event of a disas-
ter?
Sincerely,
Renee Emenecker


Gilchrist County Public
Library news
On June 5, 2007 the Friends of the
Library met at the Gilchrist County


exceed $8.4 million. The cost on the
bonds to construct a facility with an
estimated 107 inmate beds was ex-
pected to be over $13 million by the
end of the proposed 20- 30 year term
of the bond agreement.
The board members discussed in
front of the construction management
team of The Alexander Group and
Peter Brown Construction that they
did not have any hopes of receiving
grants funds to subsidize the cost of
this needed facility. Sheriff Turner
explained to the board that there
were some possibilities of receiving
inmates contracts from the Federal
government for housing Federal in-
mates, but these revenues could not
be budgeted. He explained that when
the county gets their new correctional
facility 70-80% completed, then the
Federal department would come and
review the facility and determine at
that time if they will enter into a con-,
tract with the county to incarcerate
federal inmates.
The board at this time decided to
wait and see if funds were available
to assist in this construction endeavor
and determine what the county will
actually lose regarding tax reform.
The county needs a new correc-
tional facility, but they should not
jump off into this obligation without
identifying the means to satisfy this
debt.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


In many ways Wall Street is like a
child that just will not take no for an
answer. Each time a piece of economic
data is released; the Street tries to
convince itself that it means the Fed
will lower interest rates in the not
too distant future. Then when reality
rains down like so much'cold water,
the Street throws a temper tantrums
and sends share prices lower.
Meanwhile, virtually every
organization that will cheerfully
handle your investments seems to
parrot the same party line, the Fed
will have to lower interest rates, we
can easily afford our deficits, the
inflation genie remains bottled up,
the housing industry is on the way to
recovery and Utopia is just over the
hill. Yes, and I am in the business of
selling bridges in Brooklyn.
Here is another viewpoint you
might want to try on for size. As I
have said for the past several months,
the next move by the Fed will be to
raise interest rates, not lower them.
The housing market is not going to
fully recover any time soon, much
less return to its stratospheric rise.
Furthermore, it shouldn't.
Wall Street and the mortgage
industry enticed individuals with
questionable financial resources to
stretch themselves to purchase a house
they obviously could not afford when
the so-called "introductory period"
elapsed and now they want relief
with lower interest rates. Sorry.


The Uncertainty Of The Certainty
(Kent Heaton)


The emotions of life become strong in the face of
death. Protected within our self conscience is the
knowledge that death is real yet subdued by the fragile
veneer of our busy lives. Our plans are numerous and our
ideals spread over times yet seen with a youthful vigor of
when tomorrow comes. Life is filled with a bounty of
wants and wishes and thoughts of the future. Enclosed
within those sacred walls of our lives are the many faces
of those we love with the plans we will share together in
endless days of summer.
Life is but a vapor, James writes (James 4:14). Upon
the folds of that vapor we cherish our lives and those we
love. It is hard to see life as a mist. As a breath is so
fleeting so our lives become a moment of time that is
here but for a little while, and then vanishes away. The
certainty of death is all around us but never a part of us
until that day it enters our hearts with a cruel and harsh
blow. It descends as darkness never as dark as that
moment; never so filled with agony as those words; never
so terrifying as the knowledge that death has forever
taken the life of one we love. The uncertain moment of
life has become a part of our lives that time can never
erase.
Jesus received news that Lazarus was sick. Our Lord
was God but He was born of woman bearing all the
-emotions of the human image. Jesus tarried two more
days in the place where He was and then told His
disciples that they must go to Judea. He told them that
Lazarus had died yet was only sleeping. As He came near
Bethany Martha went out to meet Him and then Mary
followed. "When Jesus therefore saw her weeping, and


the Jews also weeping which came with her, he
groaned in the spirit, and was troubled. And said,
'Where have ye laid him?' They said unto him, 'Lord,
come and see.' Jesus wept. Then said the Jews,
'Behold how he loved him'" (John 11;33-36).
The tears of Jesus bear testimony that death invaded
the Lord's life with the same brutal and unsympathetic
passion as any man. Our Savior was moved with the
frailty of life and the pain brought in the death of a
loved one. He bore those tears in understanding with the
myriad that have stood at the graves of their loves ones
grieving in loss. Jesus cares because He has been to the
tomb of a loved one. The Lord is sympathetic to broken
hearts, feeble hands, trembling lips and lives thrown in
chaos because of death.
While the time of death is the uncertainty of life, its
coming is certain save the coming of the Lord. As we
view this uncertainty we can embrace the certainty of
those who die in the Lord. Jesus said; "I am the
resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me,
though he were dead, yet shall he live" (John 11:25).
Life will be filled with joy once again. The happiness of
days gone by will fill the memory and tomorrow will
look brighter in that memory. As we walk the uncertain
pathway of life, may our eyes always be upon the
certainty of His love that knew the pain of. death, bore
the pain of death and removed the sting of death in the
victory (1 Corinthians 15:55-57). '"God shall wipe away
all tears from [your] eyes; and there shall be no more
death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there
be any more pain" (Revelation 21:4).

If you think inflation is under
control, and it is if you walk to work
and skip every other meal, just wait
until rising energy prices really get
a grip on the economy. Speaking of
meals, economists always talk about
the core rate of inflation, .which
eliminates the volatile food and
energy sectors.
Yes, food prices fell last month...
for the first time in seven months.
Apparently policy makers do not
view food as a key budget item to
most households. With regard to the
energy sector, yes it is volatile but
do you really believe that the price
of crude oil will return to $50+ per
barrel. How about we try $70+
instead? As for gasoline, look for
$3.00 per gallon to be the floor from
which prices will only rise.
Recently the Labor Department
reported that productivity rose by
one percent in the first quarter,
while labor,, costs ;increased at an
annual rate of 1.8 percent. Higher
wages are good, read necessary, for
workers. Unfortunately, if wages
continually increase at a rate that
outstrips productivity growth, the
result can, and usually will, trigger an
inflationary spiral as employers raise
prices to meet their higher payroll
costs.
With regard the trade deficit,
I am always hearing the argument
that countries are willing to hold our
dollars because they want to sell to
us. Sure they want to sell to us and
they will be more than willing to do
so at higher prices to make up for a
falling dollar.
But a cheaper dollar lowers the cost
of our exports to companies abroad
and the resulting increase in exports
helps the trade deficit. Absolutely
true...except for one small detail and
that is the resulting higher prices
we will have to pay for imports. All
those electronic gadgets we so dearly
love, do you think any of them are
manufactured in the United States.

what it is I wonder if we take the
whole freedom of religion thing a lit-
tle bit for granted. Will the time come
in our lifetimes when we might be
persecuted for being Christians?
Two of the most important life les-
sons I've learned through the years is
when it's all said and done the only
thing you leave here on earth is your
children. If they have turned out well
it is truly the biggest blessing of 'all.
I think probably the most important
job of all is raising children. I know
back when our children were young
I, like a lot of young mothers, did not
realize what an important job child
rearing was.
And lastly the very most impor-
tant lesson that I've learned in my 50
years of life is that God can get you
through anything. No matter how
bad, cling to Him. If you believe and
trust Him, God will shield you, He
will comfort you and He will give
you peace.
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not
dismayed, for I am your God; I will
strengthen you, I will help you, I will
uphold you with my righteous right
hand." Isaiah 41:10

The following recipe is printed at
the request of Mr. Thomas and Pie.
It's a tad rich but if you cut it in small
slices it's really good. This is a re-
print from a while back but this one's
good enough to print again.

2 large Vidalia Onions, thinly
sliced (about 2 cups)
2 cups grated medium Cheddar
cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup whipping cream
Salt and pepper to taste
1 piecrust
(I use Pillsbury pie crust in the red
box in the dairy case next to canned
biscuits)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place
piecrust in pie pan and cover with
crumpled wax paper. Fill with un-
cooked rice, dry. beans or pie weights
to weigh down the bottom and sides.
Bake the crust "blind" for about 10
minutes, and remove from the oven.
Remove weights and liner.
Arrange half the onions in the pie
shell, and top with half the cheese.
Add a second layer of onions and
cheese, sprinkle with salt, pepper and
drizzle with whipping cream. Bake
25 minutes or until the cheese is
lightly browned. Remove from oven
and place on wire rack. Cool slightly.
Cut into wedges and serve.

Know how to live within yourself:
there is in your soul a whole world of
.mysterious and enchanted thoughts;
they will be drowned by the noise
without; daylight will drive them
away; listen to their singing and be
silent.

Trenton City
Commission Meets
By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
had a light agenda at their June 1'8"
meeting. The main topic of the night ;
was the ranking of engineering se;-.
vices for an upcoming CDBG (Com-
munity Development Block Grant)..
Two engineering firms," George F.
Young, Inc. and Mittauer and Associ-'
ates, Inc., submitted packages for the'
commissioners to review. After both
firms made their presentations thea
score sheets were tallied and Mittau-
er and Associates was ranked num-,
ber one over George F. Young, Inc.
Mittauer scored 460 out of a possible:,
500 beating George F. Young by only;
6 points.
The CDBG grant will be used to
evaluate Trenton's existing backup
municipal water well located at the
City Park at SE 1st and 2nd Street.
According to one of the engineering.
proposals, the well has been capped'
and out of service for years. Early.
findings indicate the well has a cas-
ing collapse which prevented its use.:'
The engineering firm will evaluate:;
and make recommendations to bring-
the failed well back into operation as ';
a backup well. The work will be dond'
either through repair or constructioi'f
of a new well.
Another topic that the city commit":
sioners discussed was the flooding of
NE 10th Street. Jered Ottenwess the ',
City Manager told the commissioners
that the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District was trying to nego-
tiate a contract for the purchase of
abotit 1/4 acre from Paul Redd who ;'
has property that fronts this street.
Mr. Ottenwess said that the SRWM .
District will only pay the appraised
market value for the property. At this
time the land owner Mr. Redd was
asking $25,000.00 more than the ap-.
praised value for the land. The corn-
missioners were told that the SRWM .
District would like for the City of,?
Trenton to pay the extra $25,000.00
that Mr. Redd requested.
After a few minutes of discussion
Commissioner Glen Thigpen re-,
quested that a meeting be held to dis- ,
cuss this matter further. Commission-
er Thigpen stated that he thought it
would be good if all parties involved
were to meet face to face and discuss
the matter. ;4
Dr. Robert Vaughan also attended
the meeting to request that the Nanny
Holmes Park which is a small pie
shaped property located,on Lancast- 0
er-and NE 2nd Street in Trenton be N
accepted by the City 'of Trenton. He
said that Trenton United Methodist
Church would like to deed the prop-'
erty to the city. City Attorney David
M. Lang told commissioners that a '
public meeting would have to be held
so citizens have a chance to voice
their opinion on the city accepting '
this donation of property.

' urges water
conservation
The Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District reminds the public to
conserve water during this time of
drought.
According to the U.S. Drought
Monitor, the entire District is expe-
riencing severe to extreme drought
conditions, with no immediate relief
in sight.
Here are some simple ways to help
conserve our precious water resourc-
es:
Outdoors:
*Water lawns and landscapes no
more than two days a week, before
10 a.m. or after 4 p.m.
*If you must wash your vehicle
or bathe your pet, use an automatic
shutoff nozzle on the hose.
*Use a broom, not a hose, to clean
debris from sidewalks and drive-
ways.
*Landscape with drought-tolerant
plants.
Indoors:
*Fix leaks and/or install water-sav-
ing devices on toilets, faucets and
shower heads.
*Wash only full loads of clothes
and dishes; select the minimum wa-
ter-volume setting needed per load.
*Don't leave the faucet running
while brushing teeth, shaving, or
washing dishes.

You can afford college,
when you don't have to
pay for it!
By Linda Williams, Lake City Com-
munity College dual enrollment co-
ordinator
What would- you say if someone
offered to pay for your college class-
es? In addition,, what if they said you
could use those same courses to help
you graduate from high school? That
is exactly what the Dual Enrollment
Program does!
Qualified high school students
are offered the opportunity to fulfill
high school graduation requirements,
while gaining credit toward a cer-
tificate, diploma, or college degree
program. There is no charge to the
student or their family! This special
program provides a means for those
students who may have high ambi-
tions, but are unsure of how to reach
their goals.
Lake City Community College
(LCCC) offers the Dual Enrollment
Program to public, private, and home-
educated high school students. To en-
ter the academic program, a student
must reside in the five-county district
served by LCCC (Baker, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, or Union counties);
be enrolled in grades 10-12; be at
least 15 years old-but no older than
19 years old; have a 3.0 Grade Point
Average (GPA); and test into college-
level coursework by taking the CPT,
ACT, or SAT.
Last year, over 457 students from
LCCC's district participated in the
Dual Enrollment Program. At least
10 students graduated from high
school at the same time they earned
their college degree! Tuition and fees
for the dual enrollment courses are
waived for these students. In addi-
tion, the textbooks and instructional
materials are available to students


from Florida public high schools free
of charge,
Dual enrollment classes taken at
LCCC will transfer to any public
college or university, as is true for
all regular classes offered by LCCC.
Any college-level academic or techni-
cal/career courses may be taken, with
the exception of preparatory courses
and physical education skills classes.
A passing grade of "C" or better is
required, and all college grades will
remain a part of the permanent col-
lege transcript. High school students
should understand dual enrollment
courses are college courses and there-
fore, Dual Enrollment may not be the
best option for every student.


Courses are taught on LCCC's
main campus, its campus centers, and
at district high schools during school
hours, after school hours, and dur-
ing summer terms. Dual enrollment
courses and traditional college cours-
es use identical course content, and
may be taught in traditional class-
rooms, delivered by distance learn-
ing (in real time), by video or televi-
sion, or taught via the Internet. High
school students and college students
are enrolled in the courses together,
where they receive college credit im-
mediately upon passing the college
courses with a "C" or better. All in-
structors teaching dual enrollment
courses have college level teaching
credentials -holding a master's de-
gree with at least 18 graduate hours
in a subject field.
Why should you consider dual en-
rollment? The program gives students
first-hand exposure to the require-
ments of college-level work. High
School & Beyond, Adelman (1999)
found that the strongest predictor of
college degree completion was the
intensity and quality of students' high
school curriculum. The challenge of
passing college courses motivates
students during their final years of
high school to meet high expecta-
tions; when typically, the final year of
high school is a time students might.
otherwise "slack off." Using dual
enrollment to supplement the high
school curriculum not only increases
student motivation by expanding the
selection of interesting and challeng-
ing courses, but it also increases stu-
dent success in college by exposing
students to advanced coursework.
Iti addition to assisting with aca-
demic transition to LCCC, the dual
enrollment program can help students
make the psychological transition.
The program provides an orientation
to LCCC, and begins a focused edu-
cational plan for' each student. These
young. students gain an understand-
ing of what is expected of them as
college students, thus increasing their
confidence.
The growth of the dual enrollment
program is, to some degree, the result
of the rising cost of education. Be-
cause the program is free to qualified
students, it is the best way.for young
people to earn college credit-short-
ening the time it takes to earn their
degree, and helping them save sig-
nificantly on the cost of their educa-


To apply for the program, a stu-
dent must initially contact their high
school guidance counselor to obtain
an application-to be returned within
specific deadlines. Students who
are enrolled in home-education pro-
grams must contact LCCC directly to
apply.

SRWMD steps up
enforcement of permit
violations along rivers
An increase in unpermitted con-
struction activities along area rivers
has prompted Suwannee River Wa-
ter Management District officials to
step up enforcement of its permitting
rules.
"We've seen a substantial increase
in permit violations recently, so we're
stepping up inspection and enforce-
ment activities," says Jon Dinges,
District permitting director.
"While some people are aware of
the permitting rules, there are others
who may not understand that permits
for these activities are required,"
Dinges explains. "We're working to
inform the public of what the rules
and regulations are."
Residents living within the flood-
ways of rivers must get a permit from
the Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District (District) before per-
forming any type of construction
activity.
Works requiring a permit from the
District include construction, fill, and
clearing activities within the flood-
ways 'of the Suwannee, Santa Fe,
Alapaha, Aucilla, and Withlacoochee
rivers. This includes construction of
structures associated with a single-
family.home (house, shed, driveway,
dock, pump house, utility building,
etc.).
Individuals who are not sure wheth-
er they need a permit should contact
the District's resource management
department at 800.226.1066. Infor-
mation also is available on the Dis-
trict website: www.mysuwanneeriv-

Monday, day one: What a sur-
prise, our motorcoach reached Bell
High School way ahead of most of
our travelers. The scripture "A merry
heart doeth good like a medicine:,
but a broken spirit drieth the bones"
was quoted to let the folks know we
wanted a lot of merry hearts aboard
our motorcoach. Pat Patterson prayed
for our safety and God's blessings
on each of us today. Upon reaching
Shoney's in Valdosta, we were ready
for a hearty breakfast and, of course,
a cup of hot coffee.
By noon, we had made our way
to. Underground Atlanta for lunch.
A very interesting stopover. Lots of
bus activities kept us busy during our
travel time and by early evening we
had arrived in Pigeon Forge, Tennes-
see! Golden Corral provided us with
a steak, shrimp, and chicken 'dinner
with all the trimmings. You guessed
it...we all over ate. Shular Inn was
our home away from home for the
next four days.
Tuesday, day two: Most of us
jumped-started our day with biscuits
and sausage gravy, hot coffee, juice
and other goodies at the Inn. Weeks
Deen offered up prayer for safety
on our group. We spent our morn-
ing enjoying Southern Gospel music
rendered by the Triumphant Quartet.
The ending of their show was a very
touching tribute to our country hon-
oring the women and men who are
serving in our armed forces. There
wasn't a dry eye in our group.
Lunch was at the Country Legends
Grill. The potato soup was just right.

freshed our memory of well-known
country singers. While enjoying our
meal, the local TV Station was tap-
ing for a special on the evening news!
Wow! Our next stop was the Apple
Barn. Oh yes, most of us had to try
out their hot apple fritter with. ice
cream...but who counts calories on
vacation.
We had reservations at the Great
American Steak and Buffet. While
dining, we were entertained by a hus-
band and ,.' ife team staginog country
western She sure could yodel.
C"Cloing ,oi our dt), we attended
the Smith Family Show. Their imper-
sonator of Barney Fife came out and
quoted "A merry heart doeth good
like a medicine." A lady in our group
called out Psalms 17:22. Boy did he
let her know he knew it was in the
Bible. Made her stand up and let her'
know it was his show! At this same
show, you should have seen Frank
Quincey trying to hula hoop. We, all
decided he was doing the hoop when
he should have done the hula. A fun
night for all of us was enjoyed.
Wednesday, day three: Another
exciting day was in the making!
A prayer was offered up by Frank
Quincey that God would be with us
and keep us safe. What a BIG prayer
request' for some in our group, be-,
cause Dollywood here we come! A
few brave souls went straight to the
roller coaster and other daring rides
they had never been on! Bill Cum-
mings lost one of his hearing aids,
Kathleen McElroy got soaking wet,
but Flossie Riels was the smartest
one in the bunch, she held her hand
over her mouth, BOY, she was mak-
ing sure she didn't lose her dentures!
After our dinner at Duff's Smor-
gasboard, we had the pleasure of
attending "The Miracle," a musical
recreation of the Life of Christ. We
were inspired and renewed as we wit-
ness the glory of the Miracle.
Thursday, day four: Our day start-
ed out with prayer by Wilbur Bush
and then' we made our way to the
Sugarland Visitors Center, just inside
the Smoky Mountain National Park.
They provide information, a film
presentation and exhibits on native
plants and animal life of the Smok-,
ies. BUT the most popular spot was
the gift shop.
Free time in Gatlinburg was sched-
uled next. Henry and Eleanor, Billy
and Myrtle Roberts enjoyed a game
of putt-putt. Don't know who won but
it wasn't ile. The chair lift was
a treat for many in our group but as


usual shopping came out number one.
It was kind of sad when you go that
far from home and end up at McDon-
ald's for lunch. Mid-afternoon found
us at the Belz Factory Outlet World,
(enclosed and climate controlled). It
was senior citizen friendly.
Black Bear Jamboree Dinner and
Show provided us with a fabulous
four-course feast before entertaining
us with their high-energy production
that included the best of Broadway,
Hollywood, bluegrass, country, fif-
ties and sixties music and gospel.
Friday, day five: Bill Cummings
started us off with prayer and it was
all the way back to BELL.
A special thanks to: Elaine Hines
who directed our sing-a-long, Gene
Layfield who gave her John 3:16
story; and John Buckhalter, our faith-
ful weatherman. Rose, Yvonne and
Glorine were so helpful at snack time
while in route. Last but not least, a
great big thanks to our leader, Bill
Williamson, for becoming our new
tour coordinator and escort. Tom
Mothershed, our driver, worked re-
ally well with Bill and he has become
a part of our travel family. He did
a super job for the Fantasy Motor-

Springhouse Quilters


Joyful neart chilters

B. J. Johnson is always coming up with ideas. This is made from a
colored tablecloth that used to be used in cafes years ago. It was new-
used and B. J. took it home and made a small quilt for one of her grand.-


daughters.
Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
June 14th at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Doris Beauchamp brought
in a quilt, the pattern is 54-40 or fight,
and it turned out great, even done on
the machine. A Dutch Girl that was
appliqued many years ago, was fi-
nally finished and we know feed
sacks were used but the colors are
'still beautiful. Shirley Murphy was
here for a few days and brought in
four quilt tops she has pieced and the
work was so great they looked like
they were printed. She does work
that is outstanding like so many of
our quilters.
This week we had the geology
group out Sunday and Monday we
had the 4-H to learn to quilt. Tuesday,


Greg and six boys were out and did so
much. Wednesday we had the Bron-
son Red Hats ladies and today was
clerk day. It has been a busy week as
well as it's canning and freezing time.
Watermelons are in, so that means
preserves and pickles, green beans,
okra, squash and so much more and
when it's ready it has to be taken care
of, but that means food on the table.
We appreciate all of the vegetables
that we have been able to put up.
Lunch was so good with fried okra,
meatloaf, chicken, macaroni and
cheese, all kinds of salads, alot of
cakes, brownies and peach cobbler.
Eighteen were present with five
guests.

show gift shop as there were many
new items completed since the May

Diane Schweider displayed a
beautiful Trip Around the World,
made from scraps and was gorgeous
in shades of brown and gold. This

be given away by Springhouse later

made for patients in nursing homes,
the kidney center or abused chil-
dren. Others turning in community

Goodness gracious and praise the
Lord, wasn't that rain about the most
wonderful thing that has come our
way in a long time? It wasn't a big
huffin' and puffin' storm that scared
you half out of your wits. No, at first
it'was just a gentle sprinkle that pre-
pared that dry, dusty, sandy soil to
drink up every last precious drop of
deliciously cool, clear liquid that was.
about to spill down out of the heav-
ens. It gave way to a steady down
pour of that life-giving substance
called "rain."
It was no torrential deluge that
turns the roads into a washboard
roller coaster ride and creates deep
roadside gullies waiting to swallow
up your car should you go the muddy
slip and slide. It was just good old-
fashioned rain and at my place about
five inches fell one day and about
four the next...and all the glory goes
to God.
And I'm here to tell you that the
whole world around here smelled
fresher, looked cleaner and a whole
lot greener. And, a little extra bless-
in.,a .'ni car got a, gpod.washing.
Ram like that once eyerytwo or three,.
days sure couldn't hurt and all God's
children said...Amen.
But on Wednesday, June 6th not a
drop of rain was in sight as twelve
Joyful Hearts met at the fire station
on CR 138. It seems like lots of folks
are traveling, no matter how high
the price of gas has climbed. And no
matter how lucky they tell us we are
compared to drivers in other coun-
tries, those of us living on fixed in-
comes did not anticipate paying two
hundred dollars or more a month just
for gas.
It's kind of ironic...you are sick but
can't afford the medicine you need
and now you can't even afford the
gas to go get the medicine you can't
afford in the first place. And that's
just the tip of the iceberg that may
just sink us all.
Now where was I? Oh, yes..
Wednesday, June 6th, Ann Mangone,
Elaine Nemeth and Pat Luka all
were as busy as bees in a field full of
wild flowers only they were quilting
on our club quilt on the frame. Ann
brought in the squares on which she's
working for a quilt depicting some-
thing appropriate for each month of
the year, such as holidays, etc. It's all
in red, white and blue and of course
quite clever.
Elaine also worked on piecing to-
gether our heart squares. Our heart
quilt is not only going to be unique
but it will hold many fond memories
of one another.
Myrle Gilkey is still crocheting on
her sunny bright yellow afghan and
Matty is still crocheting on her af-
ghan of many colored squares. Hei-
di Kamp busied herself crocheting
Christmas gifts...now I ask you, how
smart is that?
Alice Binns was the only Swedish
Weaver to show up and boy howdy
that's a first. Barbara Myrick was do-
ing embroidery work and Marvine
Deer was cutting the binding for a
quilt that she is finishing.
Ruth Wilkerson, who has been out
due to cataract surgery, was back and
knitting a baby blanket. She brought
in darling multi-colored baby hats she
knitted for the little preemie babies.
Our next club-quilt is going to be
made up of dusty rose squares and
you will design a flower of your

choosing to go on that square. Diana
Lynn brought in a book of quilt pat-
terns to share with anyone looking for
ideas. I picked one out and she gave
me the "stuff" to trace the pattern on
so I can cut it out and then fuse the
pieces to the material I've chosen. It
should be another fun quilt.
Elaine announced that we have :
about five service projects in the
works and while most are geared
toward Christmas, you and I know
it will be here before you know it...
ahhhh! In fact, I was in JoAnn's Fab-
rics the other day and I said, "Are you
doing away with your garden stuff?"
She said, "No, it just looks like that
because we're making room for
Christmas merchandise." Note, she
did not say 4th of July, that stuff's
already on sale. Nor did she say
Halloween or Thanksgiving, which
I'm sure will be there any day. No,
she went straight for the jugular and
blurted it out...Christmas. Everyone
within hearing distance gasped. Did
she say Christmas they echoed in
disbelief. Are we caught up in a time
warp? Wasn't it only the' first week of-'
June,? Oh well; I thought. nimabe I'll
just leave my tree up one more year.
But, I digress.
Elaine said grace, we put aside
our work, and ate unfrozen tea party
goodies and ice cream sundaes...no
wonder we're joyful.
Our next meeting will be on
Wednesday, June 20th when we will
celebrate our June birthdays; Maxine
Hale, Heidi Kamp, and Pat Luka.
Two weeks ago a seventeen-year- .
old friend of my granddaughter hung ^
himself. His friends are still devas- ,
tated. I would like to think his life
meant something...that there is a les-
son to be learned.
Everyone is asking why? The
question I'd like to ask is not why
did he do it but why don't we teach
children how to cope anymore? We
teach to the FCAT. We teach them to
use cell phones, computers, micro-
waves, A.T.C.s, credit cards, DVDs,
CDs, ipods and the list goes on and
on and on.
Nearly everyday we hear of teen-
agers taking their own lives, shoot-
ings at schools, malls and colleges.
We hear of mothers and fathers kill-
ing their children and themselves. We
hear of love gone wrong that ends in
a killing.
When did we stop teaching people
how to cope? When did everything
anyone said to you or did to you, no
matter who or how trivial, become so
overwhelmingly earth shaking? Not
that everyone shouldn't be treated
with love, kindness and respect but
when did we start teaching that you
always would be and by everyone,
everywhere, everyday and nothing
would ever go wrong...life would al-
ways be how you wanted it to be...
perfect.
In that world you don't need to
larn coping skills, too bad it doesn't
exist. The trouble is that we are
teaching children that it does. No
parent wants to see their child hurt,
disappointed, left out but it happens.
And the sooner you teach them how"
to cope with the realities of life the
happier they will learn to be. 'Til next
time.
A Joyful Heart

U.S. Citizens with
pending passport
applications allowed
temporary travel
flexibility within western
hemisphere
The U.S. Departments of State and
Homeland Security announced that
U.S. citizens traveling to Canada,
Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermu-
da who have applied for but not yet
received passports can nevertheless
temporarily enter and depart from the
United States by air with a govern-
ment issued photo identification and
Department of State office proof of


application for a passport through
September 30, 2007. The federal
government is making this accom-
modation for air travel due to longer
than expected processing times for
passport applications in the face of
record-breaking demand.
The Western Hemisphere Travel
Initiative (WHTI) was mandated by
Congress in the Intelligence Reform
and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004
to strengthen border security and fa-
cilitate entry into the United States
for citizens and legitimate interna-
tional visitors. WHTI requirements
for air travel took effect on January
23,2007.
Adults who have applied for but
not yet received a passport should
present government-issued photo
identification and an official proof of
application from the U.S. Department
of State. Children under the age of 16
traveling with their parents or legal
guardian will be permitted to travel
with the child's proof of application.
Travelers who have not applied for
a passport should not expect to be
accommodated. U.S. citizens with
pending passport applications can
obtain proof of application at httpLL


Located 30 Miles West of
Gainesville, in Trenton


travel.state.gov.
This accommodation does not
affect entry requirements to other
countries. Americans traveling to a
country that requires passports must
still present those documents.
Since implementation, U.S. Cus-
toms and Border Protection has and
will continue to exercise its current
authorities in unique circumstances
to allow individuals subject to the
WHTI requirements into the United
States based on their evidence of
identity and citizenship.
As early as January 2008, the de-
partments will begin to implement
WHTI at land and sea ports of entry.
A Notice of Proposed Rulemaking
outlining a phased implementation
is expected to be published in the
Federal Register within the next two
weeks.
Travel document security remains
a top priority for the U.S. Govern-
ment. Both the 9/11 Commission and
the U.S. Congress urged strengthen-
ing of travel documents to prevent
entry of terrorists across our borders,
reduce use of fraudulent documents,
and speed up entry procedures.
