By Carrie A. Mizell
There is some-

Light up the grill with confidence
this Independence Day as Bell na-
tive and barbecue connoisseur, Scott
Akins, offers a few outdoor barbecu-
ing tips. Be it ribs, pork, chicken or
steak, Akins has fired up plenty of
meat on the grill at Akins Barbecue
restaurant since it opened in 1991.


0rn

Crn


"Anyone can grill, it's just a matter
of keeping the meat juicy and having
it cooked the way you like it," Akins
said.
According to Akins, barbecue ribs
should be slow cooked on a grill at
a low temperature of about 250 de-
grees for five hours. If the ribs are
cooked skin side up on the grill then
the ribs will hold juices more effi-
ciently. Cooking pork, for instance a
Boston Butt, until it falls off the bone
is simple, Akins explained. Simply
cook the pork for 12 hours at 220 de-
grees. Chicken should also be cooked
skin side up to allow for a juicer meat.
Chicken should be grilled for four
hours at 300 degrees, Akins said.
Utilize these outdoor barbecue tips
for a successful Independence Day
cookout.


County approves purchase of new emergency vehicles


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion discussed the purchase of new
ambulance units for Gilchrist Coun-
ty Emergency Medical Service dur-
ing their regular mid-month meet-
ing on June 18.
, Ron McQueen, Gilchrist County
Administrator, reported to the board
that'the Department of Public Safe-
ty had received three bids for two
medium duty ambulance units. The
board, in an earlier meeting assigned
a committee to review the bids and
bring a recommendation back to the
county commissioners. The com-
mittee members were Joe Gilliam,
Ron McQueen, Carlos Perez and
Linda Walker.

committee recommended the bid

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion approved the purchase of a fire
truck from KME Fire Apparatus
during their June 18 meeting.
Gilchrist County Public Safety
Director Carlos Perez recommended
the board accept the bid from KME
Fire Apparatus for $249,844.24 for
the base truck and some loose equip-
ment. He explained that KME Fire
Apparatus was the only company


Ambulance purchase for EMS approved


from Braun Industries of Van Wert,
Ohio. This company submitted a bid
for two 2007 Braun Super Chief Type
1 Medium duty ambulances on a 2008
"post emissions" International 4300
Chassis for a price of $177,511 each.
.The committee recommendation re-
ported that $100,000 would be ex-
pended from the 2007-2008 budget.
The remaining amount of $255,022
would be divided into three annual
installments of $85,007 over three
consecutive years beginning with the
2008-09 budget.
Gilchrist County also received
sealed bids from two other sellers.
Quality Emergency Vehicles of Holly
Hill, Fla. and Wheeled Coach of Win-
ter Park, Fla. The Wheeled Coach bid


for the same type unit was received
at $187,850 each. The Quality Emer-
gency Vehicles bid for each unit was
$164,440. McQueen and Public Safe-
ty Director Carlos Perez explained to
the board that both of these bids were
unacceptable becuase the guidelines
of the bidding process were not met
by the companies.
The board asked Linda Walker,
Emergency Medical Servide Direc-
tor, what her feelings were about the
medium weight unit and did she think
that they would provide improved
service to Gilchrist County residents.
"These units will be a big upgrade
over what we have now," Walker ex-
plained.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,


Fire truck purchased for Station One in Bell


that submitted a bid from the seven
manufacturers that were mailed bids
for this piece of equipment.

A grant from the federal govern-
ment was received to purchase this
piece of fire equipment. The grant for
$249,000 requires Gilchrist County
provide a 5 percent match to these
funds for the purchase. Gilchrist
County has been trying to work with


several fire apparatus companies to
purchase a fire truck for over a year.
The county has tried to purchase a
2006 unit that was reported to not be
equipped without the new omission
equipment, but no manufacturer re-
ported having any of these type trucks
available that would meet the funding
and equipment specifications.
Upon a motion from Commis-


Jr. asked the county administrator if
the funds identified were in the bud-
get to purchase these vehicles. The
county administrator and finance
director both assured, the comnUis-
sion that the funds were available
to purchase these units within this
agreement.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
reported that the units were very
much needed and he would ap-
prove the purchase of the units from
Braun Industries for the price and
the specifications identified on the
bid. Commissioner Kenrick Thom-
as gave a second to the motion. The
board voted 4-0 in favor of this pur-
chase. The bid stipulated that Braun
Industries would deliver the units to
Gilchrist County within 150 calen-
dar days of the bid being accepted.

sioner Tommy Langford to approve
the recommendation to purchase the
truck from KME Fire Apparatus for
the specified bid price, Commis-
sioner Kenrick Thomas was in sup-
port of this action and gave a second
to this motion. The board voted 4-0
in support of the purchase of this
unit.
When the truck is received by
Gilchrist County, it will be housed
in Station No. 1 in Bell.


Inaccurate FCAT scores will be excluded from school

noted anomalies that would impact


grades and present those options to
the advisory committee," Education.
Commissioner Jeanine Blomberg
stated in a press release.
The External Advisory Commit-
tee also supported a recommendation
to the State Board of Education for
a one-year suspension of the school
grades component requiring at least
half of a school's lowest-perform-
ing students, those in the bottom 25
percent, to make learning gains. This
proposed change would only impact
the 2007 school grades calculation.
"Ultimately, we will bring before
the State Board of Education a rec-
ommendation for a new approach to
this component of school grades that


will ensure schools focus their efforts
on their struggling students, are rec-
ognized for outstanding progress and
held accountable through a method
that is fair and reasonable," Blom-
berg stated.
During the June 19 meeting, the
State Board of Education unani-
mously rejected the External Adviso-
ry Committee's proposal that would
have suspended the requirement that
a percent of the school's lowest-per-
forming students make FCAT score
gains for a school to keep an A, B
or C rating. In 2006, 98 schools had
their grades lowered because of this
requirement, according to Blomberg.
Typically, school grades are re-
leased during the middle of June.

Akin produces prize winning

4-H vegetable garden


By Chris DeCubellis
Lots of hard work paid off for sev-
eral Gilchrist County 4-H'ers last
Tuesday at the Trenton Farmers'
Market.
Since March, about 40 4-H club
members from all over the county
have been growing a 4-H vegetable
garden. These young people raised
radishes, okra, onions, turnips, green
beans, zucchini, yellow squash, cu-
cumbers, tomatoes and sweet corn.
The kids had to follow a specific gar-
den plan and keep their plants free
from insects and disease. They also
had to keep their gardens irrigated
and learn how to properly fertilize
their gardens.
On Tuesday, many of the 4-H club
members brought their vegetables
to the Trenton Farmers' market for
judging. The young people's actual
gardens had already been judged, as
well as record books they kept on


their expenses, time invested, and
value of vegetables grown.
The big winner of the day was
Joshua Akin of the Spring Ridge 4-
H Club. He won the most overall
combined points for his garden, re-
cord book and vegetable display. In
second place was Kacee Langford of
the Udderly Perfect 4-H Club, and in
third place was Chandler DeCubellis
of the Flatwoods Friends 4-H Club.
Chandler was able to grow several
tomatoes over one pound, one weigh-
ing one pound 10 ounces. Wendy
Trantham of Trailblazers 4-H Club
and Allie Madlem of Country Grown
4-H Club rounded out the top five
places, they all received trophies for
their hard work. Spencer Hewitt of
Spring Ridge 4-H Club won a trophy

Assisted Living Facility


owner arrested
Attorney General Bill McCollum
announced the arrest of a Putnam
County woman accused of submit-
ting false reimbursement claims to
Florida's Medicaid Program. Shir-
ley A. Mobley, 55, owned Shirley
Mobley Adult Family Care Home,
an assisted living facility located in
Palatka. She was arrested by law en-
forcement with the Attorney Gener-
al's Medicaid Fraud Control Unit.
An investigation by the Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit revealed that Mo-
bley was operating the assisted living
facility without the appropriate li-
censes and billing the Medicaid Pro-
gram for services which were never
provided. The investigation was
based on an Operation Spot Check
inspection conducted last July. Dur-
ing the spot check, authorities de-


termined that Mobley's facility was
only licensed to house four individu-
als, although at the time of the inves-
tigation the facility was housing six
residents.
The investigation established that
Mobley also knowingly billed and
received, reimbursements from the
Medicaid program for care provided
to he'r family members even though
they did not live with her nor receive
services from her. Authorities esti-
mate Mobley defrauded the Medicaid
program out of more than $1,600.
Mobley is charged with Medicaid
fraud and grand theft, both third-de-
gree felonies punishable by five years
imprisonment and a $5,000 fine. She
will be prosecuted by the State Attor-
ney's Office for the Seventh Judicial
Circuit.-

Florida Property Insurance Crisis
Three Questions
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 H :i'.. au i- lurni ine RcI.v:f 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 support a Hawaii-type
plan for Florida TODAY!

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


For many years July 1 has been
.the opening day of scallop season on
,Florida's west coastline along the Big
Bend area.
*' In 2007 the scallop flags will begin
4to appear on Sunday, July 1 as many
:people are expected to head to the
'coastal waters from Crystal River up
through Cape San Blas in Gulf Coun-
ty. This year the pre-season reports
from the Florida Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission indicate an increas-
ing number of scallops were found
.when the research scientist conduct-
,ed studies recently from Homosassa,
'.Steinhatchee, and the St. Joe Bay ar-
,eas in Gulf County. In some of these
'areas the scallops were reported to be
,twice as many as were found during
*the 2006 studies. Bay scallops are
'expected to be good, mostly because
.fresh water influence has not been a
factor thus far in 2007.
On Sunday at Pepperfish Keys just
north of Horseshoe Beach Channel,
the first low tide will be at 9:22 a.m.
'This is not the extreme low tide that
.accompanies a Full Moon in July.


Letters to
To whori this may concern,
I picked up a couple of stray dogs
last Thursday in Gilchrist County.
I contacted animal services Friday
and to my dismay, not only was the
young lady rude and short, but I was
told they would most likely be held
10 days and then put down.
My question is who is in charge
over there, and whoever it is maybe
they need to get someone who is a
little more sympathetic toward these
-poor animals. Who's never had a
chance since the day they were born,
through no fault of their own, just us
-humans, who treat them this way.
Needless to say, I did not take them
.there.

My job as a Town Council mem-
ber is to try to do what I think is best
.for the Town of Bell now and in the
,future.
SI have been quoted in the commu-
'nity as being in favor of a public wa-
ter system. I am in favor under cer-
-tain conditions and for good reasons
which I wish to state at this time.
1. I do not believe in mandatory
,hook-ups for current residents.
2. I do believe that we need infra-
tstructure to support new homes and
businesses that are coming into our
Community.
3. There are 12 subdivisions all


The second low tide on Sunday that
is expected at 10:22 p.m. will be -.10
inches at Pepperfish Keys.
As the first week of scallop sea-
son extends through the July 4th In-
dependence Day, the early morning
tides will get lower later in the day
as the p.m. low tides will not be as
low as they extend on into the mid-
night and a.m. hours. As the tides
extend further from the Full Moon,
the tides will not be as extreme or as
strong. On Saturday, July 7, the early
morning tide will be high at 7:43 a.m.
and will continue to drop off until it
reaches low at 2:26 p.m.
The traffic at the coastal boat
ramps is expected to be heavy, so be
patient if you have to wait your turn.
You can always go early or wait until
mid afternoon to put your boat in or
take it out.
Good luck and make sure you have
all your safety equipment and leave
the drinking of alcoholic beverages
back on the land. Let's stay safe, and
enjoy the Independence Day and the
fun time on the water.

ready approved in Bell which will
eventually hold 500 homes. That
number of wells and septic tanks
almost guarantees pollution of our
drinking water.
4. I believe that to protect our
drinking water we should allow no
more private wells and septic sys-
tems in town.
5. If we can get grants and low-
interest loans that will pay for water
and sewer systems with no major tax
increase then we should do it.
6. We should have fire hydrants
through-out the town for fire control
and fire insurance cost reduction.
7. We should annex bordering land
where subdivisions are going to be
developed because they will impact
our roads, stores, schools, post office,
etc. We should be collecting impact
fees and taxes (that we all pay now)
and sell them our water and sewer
service.
8. Availability of water and sewer
would encourage businesses to locate
here. Some of our young people could
work here instead of having to leave
or drive long distances to work.
9. I believe the town will be forced
to have a .water and sewer system
eventually; I think we should do it
soon before problems of pollution
and crowding make it more compli-
cated and while funds are available.
Thank you for your attention and
thoughtful consideration of what is
best for-our town.-, .

You could almost hear the collec-
tive sigh of relief on the part of the
nation's consumers and suppliers
after the latest government report
showed that crude supplies climbed
6.9 million barrels for the week end-
ed June 15, and stood at 349.3 million
barrels. The news sent the August fu-
tures contract for sweet crude down-
$1.04 to $68.50.
At the same time, gasoline supplies
managed to climb 1.8 million bar-
rels to 203.3 million barrels despite
a drop in refinery activity, which fell
to 87.6 percent of capacity, from 89.2
percent a week earlier. Meanwhile,
the average retail price for a gallon
of regular gasoline fell to $2.998, ac-
cording to AAA.
Now before you go and give that
gas guzzling SUV an affectionate pat
on the hood, here is the rest of the sto-
ry. Oil imports to fuel China's boom-
ing economy rose by 11.5 percent in
the first five months of the year. That
may not mean much until you con-
sider that China is the world's third
largest oil importer.
OPEC has stated unequivocally
that there is no need for the group
to inject further oil supplies into the
market, an implicit rebuke to a state-
ment by the International Energy
Agency (IEA) which stated that there
is an urgent need for additional crude
supplies.
The IEA had warned of the pros-
pect of a world oil supply deficit this
year due to record demand, rising
project delays and reluctance on the
part of OPEC to ship more crude this
summer.
"We need an awful lot more crude,"
IEA supply expert David Fyfe said.
"To us, the balance looks particularly

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


Traditionally throughout the South
July 4th is most often celebrated with
barbecue. Most likely pork is the
number one barbecue meat of choice.
Our cookers, smokers and grills do
cook chicken from time to time but
most of us feel that pork just can't be
beat when you are talking barbecue.
Cookers range from wonderful ex-
pensive models on wheels that cost
from 8 to 10 thousand dollars to a
hole dug in the ground with a few old
cinder blocks around the sides. The
grill on the blocks could be an old
rusty shaker screen that somebody
drug up from somewhere. I've even
seen people use the wire shelving out
of old-timey refrigerators.
Fire and smoke are important
when barbecuing, in fact, they very
well may be the most important of
all. One barbecue expert said, "Pa-
tience and slow cooking,. that's it."
Our family likes to use wood; in fact,
our wood of choice is wild bay trees
cut from hammocks in this area. The
bay wood is usually sawed into round
disks by \%hoe'er is operating the
chain saw and saved for later use. We
usually soak ours for a while in wa-
ter before using it to barbecue with. I
believe, my brother uses green ba.. he
has a few trees on his place and cuts
off a limb or two as he needs it.
For years we used' a gas grill at
our house to.grill steaks or ribs. But
we've switched over to one of these
round Weber Kettles and charcoal.
.One barbecue expert recommends
that you build the fire as you usually

do, piling the charcoal in a mound.
When they are white hot, shove them
to one side of the fire grate. On the
other side put a tin pan filled with
water: This water will add moisture
to the meat. Soak wood chips over-
night in water. Add the wood chips
to the fire as needed to keep a steady
smoke. If they are small enough you
can drop them though the grill rack.
Next put on the rack and place the
meat over the area where the wa-
ter pan is located underneath. Make
sure the smoke holes are open. Now
back off and enjoy the aroma of your
cooking meat.
The following rub recipe comes
fiom Tennessee and it's some kind of
fine. Rub this rub on pork before you
place it on the grill. Its good to let the
meat set after the rub is applied for 30
minutes to an hour before you start
cooking it. Never use old spices in a
rub. Buy fresh spices and make up an
extra batch or two of rub and share it
with a couple of friends.

1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon red pepper
"1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Combine ingredients. Makes
enough to rub 2 racks of rib's.

The often used response by our pol-
icy makers on the subject is that con-
sumers will adapt to lower supplies
and higher prices by becoming more
energy efficient. At the same time,
reduced economic growth means 'a
reduced energy requirement. And of
course there is always the panacea of
alternative energy sources.
So where is all this leading? Sim-
ply put, despite small perturbations,:
the demand for crude oil and its de-
rivatives will increase. Furthermore,
the supply is limited and bringing
-that supply to market is becoming
increasingly difficult and expensive.
Therefore, higher prices at every
point in the supply line are inevitable.
So, if you would like a small piece of
the pie, you might want to continue
to look at energy companies as pos-
sible investment candidates.

Legionnaires
Were veterans; every day, every hour, every minute we are alive. Our service to the
nation is undeniable and no one can take that away. As veterans we have had the honor,
duty and, yes, the privilege to serve our country. Our forefathers established this great
nation and set into place a grand document to provide for our future. Brave men and
women have.died defending our way of life throughout the world because we know the
importance of freedom. Freedom is not free. 1 1 .
I am really gratified to hear comments from those who read our newsletter. I have
received some very favorable comments arid; it encourages me to continue with this
column. Unfortunately, some papers do not publish this article or only print it monthly. I
guess I don't quite understand their point of view. How can anyone deny news to our
veterans? I11l leave.this topic for your pondering and move on to greater news.
On June 21st, Post 91 installed new officers for the legion and auxiliary. 4th District
Commander Jim Ramos installed Woodrow DeMoure as Commander of Post 91 and
those other officers present. Installation of the Unit 91 President, Debra War nd her
officers was conducted by 4th District Auxiliary President Peggy Hearlson. Both
.Commander Ramos and President Hearlson encouraged members to stay active and
build active membership. Both Unit 91 Auxiliary and Post 91 Legion members are
encouraged to become active and assist this great organization.
On Saturday, June 30th (mark your calendars!) Commander Ramos will visit Post 91
to provide Legion new officer training. This training is for any officer of the post and
available to any post member who would like to get more involved. Training starts at 9
AM so come a little early for coffee and doughnuts so we can get the program started on
time.
This 4th of July the post will have a good old fashioned picnic at the post home from
10 AM until 2 PM. All members are welcomed to come out and enjoy some music from
a local band and catch up on some visiting with other veterans in the neighborhood. I
understand that a nice lunch will be prepared with plenty of food for a $5 donation per
plate. With the 4th being on a Wednesday this year we figured it would be a great way to
celebrate our independence with one another as most folks probably will use the
weekend before or after to go out of town. So, we hope to have a good crowd and an
enjoyable day. It would be helpful to contact President Debra Ward at 463-7721 in
advance so we can get an idea for our headcount.
The Florida Department of the American Legion and Auxiliary will conduct their
annual Constitutional Conference in Orlando July 5 8. Both Post and Unit 91 are
sending delegates to represent us. We look forward to our new year ahead and hope that
other veterans in the area will come out to work with us this year.
Unit 91 Auxiliary meets the second Thursday of the month at 6 PM in Trenton.
Post 91 Legion meets the third Thursday of the month at 7 PM in Trenton.
Post 149 Legion meets the first Tuesday of the month at 7 PM in Newberry.

In recent weeks. on the radio program, "Bible Talk,"
the topic of the elders was discussed in reference to
congregations without elders and the kind of men that
should serve as elders. Without intending any
misunderstanding, the programs created concern among
brethren as to churches that do not have elders and the
best format to use in absence of elders. I apologize for
this misunderstanding and hope to clarify the intent of the
message in this brief article.
It is clear that many of the New Testament churches
existed for a time without elders.'Barnabas and Paul
"returned again to Lystra, and to Iconium, and Antioch,
confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting
them to continue in the faith, and that we must through
much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. And
when they had ordained them elders in every church;
and had prayed with fasting, they commended them to
the Lord, on whom they believed" (Acts 14:21-23). Titus
was left in Crete to "Set in order the things that were
wanting, and appoint elders in every city, as I gave thee
charge." (Titus 1:5). The Revised Standard Version says,
"That you might amend what was defective, and appoint
elders in every town as I directed you" (Titus 1:5).
A congregation without elders is a New Testament
church. It has not come to the full maturity that God
intends but it can function within the boundaries of the
New Testament pattern of church work, worship and
organization. Until such a time elders can be appointed,
the church must carry out its work. of evangelism,
benevolence and discipline as prescribed by God's law. A
means to carry out that work is referred to as a "business
meeting" and this serves to fulfill the work of the church.
This process is a valuable tool to use in the absence of


men who would serve as elders,
The business meeting must be viewed as a temporary
means to grow to full maturity with the oversight of
elders. The elders are the ones whom the Holy Spirit has
made to be overseers and to care for the church of God
purchased with the blood of Jesus Christ (Acts 20:28).
They have been entrusted with the watch-care of souls
(Hebrews 13:17). The qualities listed in 1 Timothy 3 and
Titus 1 are given for the work of elders to carry out the
mission of the church. The business meeting while
effective to maintain a decent and orderly working of
the church has not been, given those admonitions.
One of the most important works that a congregation
without elders must include in church work is to grow to
the establishment of,.elders. This must be the constant
focus and planning of the brethren. There can be many
reasons why this cannot be accomplished in a certain
period of time but when a congregation continues to
exist year after year without efforts being made to
establish an eldership they have failed to mature to the
pattern commanded by the Lord in the New Testament.
Men must be encouraged to strive. to this goal -
whether from their youth or their older age. New
converts must be shown the pattern to strive for in their
lives to fulfill and mature to the role of the elder one
day. We need families who will rise to the challenge of
the eldership so that the church of our Lord can mature
in spirit and number as found in the pattern of the New
Testament church. As we stand for the truth in seeking
to be the New Testament church, let us hot forget to
stand for the truth within our own ranks to obey the
commands of Him who gave His life for the church.

Remember Our Troops
by the Republican Executive
Committee of Gilchrist County
The Republican Executive Com-
mittee of Gilchrist County is at-
tempting to establish a current list
of all Gilchrist County residents,
who served in any branch of the U.S.
Armed Services between January
2006 and present.
The list will be used for our prayer
remembrance list and for a plaque
that will be presented to the county
during our Stars of Freedom Ban-
quet. A date for the banquet has not
been determined.
The plague will honor our fam-
ily and friends who have served our
country in the military and are the
Real Stars of Freedom.
The list below is incomplete, we
don't have all of the names and we
need your help to fill in the blanks.
We would like the present rank,
branch of military service, if the
person served in a combat zone and
present mailing address (all mailing
addresses will be kept confidential)
so that we can contact these brave
souls and personally thank them.
Please take the time to scan the
list and if you can help us call Ken
Palm at 352-463-0089 or Dr. Geneva
Cornwell at 352-463-1473.
Thank you very much for your
help and Remember to Pray for our
Troops!

Despite the heat, torrential rains
and equipment failure, members of
the Bell Purple Powerhouse Band's
Drumline and Flag Team completed
a long, hard week of skills camp at
the High School.
The Band was fortunate to obtain
the services of two master instruc-
tors. The Flag team had Instructor,
Erin Brown. She is a former mem-
ber of the world champion Phantom
Regiment Drum and Bugle Corp of
Rockford, Illinois, the Independent
World Winterguard and the Universi-
ty of Florida Marching Band. She has
taught at Lake Mary High School, St.
Augustine High School, Teal Sound
Drum and Bugle in Jacksonville and
Southwind Drum and Bugle in Lex-
ington, Kentucky. Erin is currently
the Director of a forty-three member
color guard at Freedom High School
in Orlando. They are consistently a
top five finalist at the World Color-
guard Championships each year.
The drumline and Pit members
were instructed by Jeff Shipman. He
is the Percussion Director for Keyser
High School Marching Band in Key-
ser, West Virginia. His services as a
clinician are highly sought through-
'out the country. Both Instructors
worked with their groups on three of
the four musical numbers the Band
will perform at the half-time shows
and competition.
Ms. Brown went through the tech-
niques of flag and rifle maneuvers the
first day and spent the balance of the
next two days helping our flag team
choreograph their songs. The last
day was spent cleaning up the rou-
tines and filming the routines for con-
tinued practice during the summer.
Mr. Shipman spent his first day
discovering the .weakness in the per-
cussion section and showing them
skills that would increase their speed
and sticking abilities. He also spent
time on exercises that would develop
their calves and back muscles. Por-
tions of day two and three were spent
on developing better marching tech-
niques and running through the three
marching pieces. Day four consisted
of improving on the three musical
pieces and reviewing the basics they
had learned on the prior days.
If the rest of the Band puts in the
same effort at Band Camp that these
16 members did this past week, it
should be a very successful marching
season for the Purple Powerhouse.
DON'T FORGET! Band Camp
is August 13th through August 17th.
.Your Camp packets will be in the mail
to you after July 16th. Officers and


Section Leaders, you have a meeting
with Mr. Eckstein in the Band room
on July 16th'

In Okefenokee, Fire is a Benefit!


Submitted
If you have been watching the news
and seen the stories about the Okefe-
nokee, it would be understandable to
think that this special place was dev-
astated by the recent fire. But fortu-
nately that is just not the case. While
the. 2007 Sweat Farm Road, Big
Turnaround Complex, and Bugaboo
Scrub Wildfires did cause substantial
damage to homes and to private tim-
berland that surround it, within the
Okefenokee the effects of these fires
were actually beneficial. The fire
left a mosaic of burned habitat scat-
tered across the swamp ecosystem
that will help maintain and revitalize
Okefenokee's fire-dependant upland
forests and wetlands for many years
to come.
Most of the Okefenokee's upland
habitat was once dominated by long-
leaf pine and wiregrass, but clear-cut-
ting, planting of commercial-grade
pine, and deliberate fire prevention
reduced most of the native habitat,
along with a lot of the wildlife, which
depended on it. Longleaf pine/wire-
grass forests are among the most di-
verse plant and animal communities
in the southeastern United States.
These forests are not only tolerant
but dependant on fire for their very
existence. Fire spurs the growth of
longleaf pine and reduces competi-
tion from other plant species by bum-
ing out other pine species and shrubs.
Fire also opens up natural upland for-
ests, improving conditions for the en-
dangered Red-cockaded woodpecker,
the Gopher tortoise, and the Indigo
snake. Occasional fire reduces fuel
accumulations, lessening the chance
of catastrophic fire that can destroy
an entire forest or worse!
Okefenokee's wetlands also benefit
from occasional fires. Much of these
wetlands are prairies, a type of marsh
that contains an extensive communi-
ty of specialized plants and animals.
Fire will open up prairies by burn-
ing out shrubs and other low woody
plants, which would otherwise take
over the wetlands. During times of
low water levels, fire can also bum
layers of peat and vegetation, deep-
ening the prairies while preventing
them from filling in and dn mg out.
The potash from burnt vegetation
also is beneficial, raising the pH of
the acidic swamp water, which im-'
proves conditions for fish to spawn
and thrive, thus enhancing the over-
all fishery, especially for sportsmen.
Next spring many fishermen in Oke-
fenokee will begin to see the benefits
from this year's wildfire.
What happened to the wildlife?

Luckily, most wildlife can survive a
fire in the Okefenokee. Animals like
fish and alligators can stay protected
in or under the water, while most
birds will simply fly to safer ground.
Land animals such as deer, fox, and'
bear can outrun most fire, while other
animals such as gopher turtles and
indigo snakes can safely hide in un-
derground burrows. A few animals
will die from the heat and/or be over-
taken by the fire, itself, but most of
the animals will survive. Firefighters
have seen very little animal mortality
thus far.
Today you can see the effects of
the fire along the refuge drive and
the water trails. Due to recent rains,
grasses, ferns and other plants are al-
ready rapidly growing in burned ar-
eas of the upland forest and swamp,
and wildlife has already returned to
the burned areas to feed on the new
growth. By this time next year, much
of the evidence of this fire will be hid-
den by lush green vegetation. With-
out this natural fire cycle, this unique
fire-dependant ecosystem would not
be around for us to enjoy. So come
to the refuge and witness for yourself
the effects of fire in Okefenokee be-
fore it is completely overtaken by all
the new growth, and experience first
hand why fire in this unique ecosys-
tem is beneficial.


Florida Museum to
host Caribbean
archaeology
symposium
June 29
The Florida, Museum of 'Natural
History presents "In the Footsteps of
Ripley and Adelaide Bullen: A Sur-
vey of Caribbean Archaeology" from
9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on June 29, 2007
in Room 122 of Frazier/Rogers Hall
on the University of Florida campus.
This first-ever event sponsored by.
the Florida Museum Caribbean Ar-
chaeolog\ Program is free and open
to the public.
Event organizer and Florida Mu-
seum Archaeology Curator Bill
Keeganr said speakers will touch on
topics highlighting the multicultural
diversity of the Caribbean and his-
torical interconnections between the
islands.
"People think of history as an' old,
dead subject," said Keegan, who'
heads the Florida Museum's Carib-


pley Bullen, the Florida Museum's
first curator of social sciences and
a pioneer in his field who collected
extensive archaeological material
throughout Florida and the Carib-
bean. This year marks the 30th an-
niversary of his death, and the 20th
anniversary of the death of his wife,
Adelaide, with whom Bullen worked
closely throughout his life.
"Because of Bullen's pioneering
work, the Florida Museuni has the
second-largest systematic collec-
tion of Caribbean archaeology in
North America," Keegan said. "So it
seemed fitting that we honor him by
naming this symposium after him."

bean Archaeology Program. "But
two presenters, both of whom are
from the Caribbean, are talking about
the influence of the pre-European
path in modem society. To myn mind
this shows that the path is still alive
today."
Time periods under discussion
rage from 1,000 A.D. to present.
Symposium speakers include Florida
Museum staff, academic faculty, stu-
dents and former students.
"One of the best things about the
Caribbean Archaeology Program at
the Florida Museum is that we've
been attracting so many students
from the Caribbean," Keegan said.
In addition to research, the program
trains UF students.

a, New rules for red-eared slider


Submitted
Beginning July, 1, people no lon-
ger may purchase red-eared sliders
-- common pet store turtles. A new
rule passed by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) prohibits selling the species.
However, anyone who already has a
red-eared slider may keep it, under
the new rule.
"This exemption was included to
allow owners of red-eared sliders
to keep their turtles and discourage
them from releasing this normative
species into the wild," said Scott Har-
din, FWC exotic species coordinator.
"We want to encourage people to
protect our native turtles. Red-eared
slider turtles interbreed with Florida's
native yellow-bellied sliders." -
Red-eared sliders already in cap-
tivity will not be allowed to breed,
so any offspring will have to be sur-
rendered to certified red-eared slider
adopters or dealers, or euthanized.
People still can buy and sell albino
red-eared sliders and others with un-
usual color variations, often known
as pastels.
"These colorful varieties are more
expensive and unlikely to be re-
leased,'? Hardin said.
Dealers can apply for permits to
import red-eared sliders to ship out of
state or sell to permitted turtle dealers
or breeders in Florida, but imported
red-eared sliders may not be sold as


pets in this state.
FWC will issue permits to qualified
research institutions and exhibitors to
possess red-eared sliders.
The new rule also requires a solid
fence or planking buried at least 6
inches under the ground for red-eared
sliders kept outside.
Owners of pet red-eared sliders
may not acquire additional speci-
mens, and if their turtles reproduce,
they should destroy all eggs before
they hatch.

4-Pets Sake
July 4th is just around the comer
waiting for us; but please don't for-
get about the health and safety of
your pets. What we consider thrilling
could be devasting to your pets due
to the anxiety they endure caused by
bright flashes and loud noises when
celebrating.
Who are you gonna call when
you're looking to give a five-year-old
neutered and declawed feline a good
home? 4-Pets Sake of course! A few
weeks ago I wrote about Friskie who
is in need of a good home. Well, I
wrote he is a calico but I apologize
for the blunder, Friskie is black and
white., His pet parent passed away
and he is missing the attention. He
has never been around children or
other pets, Give us a call if you can
make his life happier.
Do you have a high cap for a 1992
Sierra GMC truck that you care to
sell at a reasonable price? We use
this truck for taking pets to and from
vets, pick up feed, and haul things to
auctions and yard sales. That cap has
been working hard for many years
but now we have to replace it because
it just literally hangs there by luck.
Have a happy and safe 4th. 386-935-

American Legion Post 383 elects new leaders


Chris Christians and Mary Byrd
Christians, a local couple, have been
elected to leadership positions with
the Old Town American Legion post.
Chris was elected post commander of
the local post, while Mary was elected
president of the auxiliary unit. Chris
is a retired marine corps officer, while
Mary is known locally in the real es-
tate community. Both will succeed
current post commander, Paul Som-
mer and unit president, Donna Wil-
liams, at the July membership meet-
ing of the post and auxiliary.

Local SDA School's Art
Auction a success
The smile of a young artist was
the true measure of success at the
Seventh-day Adventist Elementary
Schools Art Auction and Sale held
April 29th in High Springs. Artwork
created -by the schools 14 students,
plus donations from local profes-
sional and amateur artists, were put
on the block for sale. More than 75
people participated in the auction and
greater than $2,500.00 was raised to
support student activities.
Artworks ranging from Roger Hof-
mtn's Native American cross stitch
entitled "Chief Seattle" to Renee
Linville's beautiful fused glass on
copper delighted all. Noted local art-
ists Lorraine Selby and Mike Segal
contributed stunning oil on canvas
paintiin:s N KJ\ Smith's creation.
a quilted art piec-e entitled "Spriings
Aquatic \Wonder" added another col-
orful dimension.
SBut the artists that stole the day


American Legion Post 383 finished
the legion year with 250 paid mem-
bers, while the Auxiliary unit 383 fin-
ished with 118 paid members; Sons
of the American Legion Squadron
383 end the year with 51 paid mem-
bers. Post Adjutant, Gene Street, said
"the post continues to show positive
growth in a difficult environment"
and "our post is constantly recruit-
ing new members for the post, aux-
iliary and the Sons of the American
Legion."

were the much younger variety. With
auctioneer Roland Werner calling the
numbers and Vilma Kiemana present-
ing the narration, the children took
center stage and watched as their cre-
ations were sold to the highest bidder.
Second grader Christophers work of
art called "Water Moccasins" was
only bettered by his beautiful mile-
wide smile, even if a tooth or two was
missing (on both Christopher and the
snakes) .
And let us not forgot those who
~ worked behind and in front of the
scene, especially Orane, Cassie, Em-
ily and Mark, the art runners who so
carefully brought up and displayed
each piece.
And lastly, so much thanks goes
to those who contributed their art:

Victory Christian School
Graduation
The weekend began on Friday eve-
ning, June 1, 2007, when hosts, Dr's
Johnny and Joyce Hill and the Timo-
thy Canham Family, surprised each of
the Victory Christian School graduat-
ing seniors with a special limousine
ride, a bright and colorfully decorat-
ed auditorium, and a delicious dinner
for the Baccalaureate program. After
the meal, time was spent in fellow-
ship prayer for each of the graduates.
The next day, Saturday, June 2nd,
brought clouds and rain but the in-
clement weather did not hinder those
wonderf41l families and friends who
came to participate in and observe
the nineteenth annual Victory Chris-
tian School "Pageant of Learning
Reunion." The program was held at
Terrace Palms Community Church in
Tampa, Florida.
With graduating seniors attired in
white, with honor chords of blue cas-
cading down the front of their gowns,
along with red, white and blue tassels
gently swaying from their caps, hap-
py faces and broad smiles were the
order of the day.
Those who received VCS 2007 di-
plomas, as well as character growth,
academic and *VI.VA. program,
awards were as follows: Christina
Angelakos (Casselberry FL); Jamie
Craven (Brooksville FL); George
Georgiou (Tarpon Springs FL); Jo-
hanna Hill (Brooksville FL); Joel Jen-
kins (Wesley Chapel FL); Eric Kis-
kaddon (Tarpon Springs FL); Lloyd
Lesley, Jr. (Fairburn GA); Joshua
Morgan (Tampa FL); Megan Nip-
per (Newberry FL); Rachel Rivera
(Wesley Chapel FL); Kyle Spradley
(High Springs FL); Elisabeth Strick-
land (Alewela, Costa Rica); Samuel
Umphlett (Holiday FL). Valedicto-
rian of the Senior Class was Eric Kis-
kaddon and Joel Jenkins was selected
as the Salutatorian.
During the program VCS students
completing Kindergarten through
Grqde 11 received certificates of
completion and character develop-
ment awards. Those others who were
the backbone of the event played a
very important role in its success.
They were Rev. Jim Angelakos, Bro.
& Mrs. Dan Eberly, the Dr. Bruce
Kiskaddon Family, the Michael Jen-
kins Family, Rev. Ron Pope and Rev.
Christopher Rees.
Victory Christian School, founded
in' 1981, is the school for students

leaning. About 25% of its graduates
enter the military. Since 1990, 80%
of its graduates have received a Flor-
ida Bright Futures Scholarship award
or one comparable in another state.

Bugaboo Bears released
in Osceola National
Forest
The saga of the two bears res-
cued during the "Bugaboo" fire that
swept through Columbia and Baker
counties in May has reached a happy
ending.
A team of biologists and veteri-
narians from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
S(F\Cj. Disney's Animal Kingdom
and Universit\ of Florida Veterinary
Medical Center (UF VMC) released
two bears back into the Osceola Na-
tional Forest.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission respond-
ed to reports of an injured bear with
a cub in the Osceola National For-
est on Mother's Day, May 13, 2007.
The bears had been caught up in the
fire that raged through the forest.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission bear-
capture team, along n ith help from
members of the Columbia County
Fire Department, Columbia County
Public Works, The Forestry Compa-
ny and MA Rigony in Perry, rescued
the two animals and took them to
the University of Florida Veterinary
Medical Center in Gainesville. The
sow suffered third-degree burns on
all four feet. The cub was dehydrat-
ed but untouched by the fire.
After receiving emergency medi-
cal care at the University of Flori-


da Veterinary Medical Center, the
bears were moved May 18, 2007
to Disney's Animal Kingdom for
medical treatment and rehabilita-
tion. The sow and her nursing cub
were held in special areas to prevent
regular human contact. During the
past month, Disney's Animal King-
dom veterinarians treated the burns,. -
changed her bandages regularly, and
fed the bears a natural diet that in-
cluded berries, cabbage palm and
fish to get them ready for release
into the wild.
Pollock said, "We were able to
release them within five miles of the
sow's historical home range. They
needed to get back 'home' and, be
wild again."

for many reasons," Arrington says,
"among them--the level of care and
concern the patients I referred to
Haven Hospice received;: my phi-
losophy is that there is always some-
thing we can to do to help someone;
and my belief that because nurses

work very holistic and stimulating,"
she adds. "It is a positive challenge
to provide the best medical care.pos-

Pat Osowieki makes lots of table runners from leftover quilt squares.
These are given away to family and friends.


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
June 21 at the Levy County Museum.
It was another show and tell with sev-
eral quilts being shown. Jannie has
made a quilt from 2 1/2 inch squares
using 1-inch blocks on the border.
Dorothy Lautiainen has finished a
small quilt that is very pretty. Ev-
eryone is busy making all kinds of
articles.
The 4-H'ers from the Bronson area
were over on Wednesday to make tote
bags. Muriel has a way with shadow
quilting that makes a design using
patterns of animals and flowers. The
girls are learning to use a thimble
but everyone has a good time. We
learned all this when we had sewing
and cooking in school. We would
love to see it that way again.

AARP Nationwide
Caregiving Valued at
$350 Billion
Millions of family caregivers pro-
vide billions of dollars worth of care
to loved ones each year according to
a new AARP study released today.
AARP estimates the economic value
of family caregiving at $350 billion in
2006 comparable to the annual U.S.
sales, of Wal-Mart. In Florida alone,
the value of caregivers' contributions
was estimated at $17.5 billion.
"Family caregivers are the unsung
heroes of long-term care in our state,"
said AARP Florida State Director
Lori Parham. "While too many are
unaware of the care they provide,
caregivers' contributions can delay
or even prevent more costly nursing
home care. That is important not
only to provide high-quality care for
seniors, but it can also be important
in making wise use of scarce public
resources, like Medicaid dollars."
Most family caregivers are women
-who are employed full or part-time
and nearly one-fifth of all U.S. work-
ers are caregivers (19 percent). As
family caregivers are forced to take
time off and work partial days to care
for their loved ones, they face lower
wages, reduced job security, and loss
of employment benefits like health'
insurance, lower retirement sayings
and Social Security earning. These


Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and what a difference they make
each week with the yard and building.
We got a fig tree planted, the grapes
are maturing as well as the tomatoes.
We will be pulling the onions next so
they can be dried out. Thanks Lan-
caster.
Our prayers are for all the sick,
those in the hospital and nursing
homes. Seems'like everyday we hear
about someone who needs prayer.
Lunch was good with 12 from
Bronson FAHCE Club to enjoy fried
green tomatoes, chicken and dump-
lings, peas, tomatoes, cucumbers,
macaroni salad, Marie's ? and so
much more.

tors.

losses come at a difficult time when
income and benefits are critical for
the caregiver and their family. U.S.
businesses also feel the impact; pro-
ductivity losses associated with care-
giving are estimated as high as $33
billion a year.
The AARP Public Policy Institute
study, "Valuing the Invaluable: A
New Look at the Economic Value of
Family Caregiving," shows that of
those with the most intense level of
caregiving responsibility, 92 percent
report major changes in their work-
ing patterns 83 percent arrive late,
leave early or take time off during the
day; 41 percent report taking a leave
of absence; and 37 percent report
going from full-time to part-time to
adjust for their caregiving responsi-
bilities. Additionally, the caregivers'
own health is often at risk as they are
more likely to suffer chronic health
conditions and incur medical debt
than non-caregivers.
The study shows that, without
Florida caregivers, the state's taxpay-
ers would face staggering expendi-
tures. For example, in the 2007-2008
state fiscal year, the state of Florida
plans to spend about $16 billion in
state and federal dollars on Medicaid
for people of all ages. Florida care-
givers provided $17.5 billion in care
during 2006. Nationally, caregivers
contribute an estimated $350 billion
in care, roughly equal to the annual

AARP's study notes that the No. 1
reason why residents enter long-term
resident nursing facilities is caregiver
burnout.
By supporting families in care-
giving roles, Florida can not only
improve the lives of Floridians 50+
and help support families but also
help businesses and taxpayers, the
study shows, Parham said. AARP is
launching a multi-year campaign to
improve long-term care in Florida in
2008 by helping families plan early
for long-term care, find critical in-
formation, seek out high-quality care
options, get some financial support,
and preserve their ability to choose
how and where their loved ones re-
ceive care, Parham said.

cessed at: http:7//www.aarp.org/re-
search/housing-mobility/caregiving/

While AARP Florida works to
improve long-term care, the 2.8-
million-strong association will be
closely watching state efforts to use
managed-care organizations, such
as HMOs, to deliver long-term care
financed by Medicaid. The plan,
strongly opposed in its initial form
by AARP, is known as Florida Senior
Care (FSC). This plan would have re-
quired some seniors to receive long-
term care services financed by Med-
icaid through a managed care compa-
ny, such as an HMO. Florida's Agen-
cy for Health Care Administration
(AHCA) received federal approval to
proceed with pilots in counties in the
Panhandle and Orlando, but needed
final authorization to implement the
program. In the 2007 legislative ses-
sion, acting in response to concerns
raised by AARP and other organiza-
tions working for seniors, lawmak-
ers provided for two voluntary pilot
programs to test managed long-term
care in Orlando. and Miami. Unlike
.earlier plans, these pilot programs are
to be truly voluntary in nature, rather
than mandatory or "opt-out". AARP
will continue to work to protect fami-
lies' choice.
With more than 2.8 million mem-
bers in Florida AARP is a nonprofit,
nonpartisan membership organiza-
tion that helps people 50+ have in-
dependence, choice and control in
ways that are beneficial and afford-
able to them and society as a whole.

Wednesday, June 20th found
eighteen Joyful Hearts and one visi-
tor dodging ever-so-welcomed rain
drops as they spilled out of their vehi-
cles loaded down with bundles, bags,
and baskets of materials with which
to craft, quilt, and sew.
Once inside, with hugs and hellos
equally distributed, everyone settled,
down to "do their thing." We were
especially glad to have Paulene Mar-
tin with us and we are so grateful
to her husband, George, because he
brings her to visit with us. They have
just come back from a long trip to
New York. Paulene is doing well and
hopefully will be able to try her hand
at some easy project real soon.
Pat Luka and Maxine Hale both sat
right down at the quilt on the frame
and quilted up a storm...so to speak.
Elaine Nemeth sat at a machine and
finished putting all the lavender strips
of material around our heart squares.
It's going to be another quilt that ev-
eryone is going to want to win.
Barbara Strom brought in her vin-
tage sewing machine, that still works
as good as a brafld new one, to help
me with my Christmas gift purse-
making venture. I loved the one I
made for myself and decided if I
could just get this down pat, I could
make great gifts for Christmas. Bar-
bara has agreed to give me, a crash
course in purse-making 101.
Bonnie Edwards, Alice Binns,-
Mary. Lou Ryder, Lu Rowland and
Jackie Moore were all busy as bees
with their Swedish Weaving. It was
so good to have Jackie with us as her
husband, Lawrence, is quite ill and
she can only come if someone is there
to look after him. It was also good to
have Lu back. She took a nasty fall
at home and praise God she was not
hurt any worse than she was. She's
using a cane but is still as spunky' as
ever.
Ruth Wilkerson has recovered
completely from her cataract surgery
and was knitting a baby blanket for
the preemies. She also brought in
several hats she's knitted for them.
Heidi Kamp, Myrle Gilkey and
Lera Townsend all were crochet-
ing. Heidi was making hot pads,
Lera Christmas gifts, and Myrle is
still working on her butter-yellow
afghan.
Barbara Myrick was doing her
lovely embroidry work and Diana
Lynn was doing a satin stitch around
her flower on the square for our next
club quilt.
Kathy Strom and hubby just got
back from a wonderful and breath-
taking trip to Alaska. They even
panned for gold and she has a neck-
lace to prove it. She had many pic-
tures and stories to share. It must
have been quite an adventure.
Elaine announced we have fifty
lap quilts finished for the V.A. hos-
pital. We are going to make and/or
buy fifty pairs of slippers and make
up fifty gift bags of toiletry items to

Barbara Strom's colorful quilt puts a smile on her face and a smile in
your heart.


go with them for Christmas. We also
have about thirty card carousels al-
most finished that are going to Ayers
in Trenton.
Our prayers are with Rita Simcoe
who has not been up to par and with
Judy Pflueger and her husband, Al.
Al is the pastor at Riverside Baptist
and he has suffered a heart attack and
praise God is doing much better.
Soon it was time to set aside our
works in progress and celebrate the
June birthdays...Maxine, Pat, Heidi
and Olga who was not present. We
had a lemon cake with orange icing
covered with coconut...it, was great
with ice cream. .
As we were cleaning up and get-
ting ready to leave, you could hear the
rumble of thunder gathering outside.
We scurried like squirrels tucking our
bags and baskets into our cars before
the sprinkling of rain drops turned
into a torrent of rain...but praise God
for every precious drop of it.
Just the little we've gotten every
now and again has done wonders for
all my plants and flowers. My crepe
myrtles are in bloom as is my garde-
nia bush. Our tomatoes, egg plants,
peppers, and herbs are doing great, or
course. We've,had to water them in
between the rains and Miracle-Gro
does a world of good as well. But
my flowers in pots and baskets are
doing great and no matter how it hap-
pens all the glory goes to God...and
all God's children said amen.
Our next meeting will be Wednes-
day, June 27th and then Wednesday,
July 4th. The hot dog picnic idea was
cancelled as so many said they hadr
other-plans for the day. .I'd call be-
fore I'd come on the 4th as it may just
not happen at all.
Not just our group but everywhere
women gather to quilt and create
with their hearts and their hands a
fabric of friendship is created. Like
the threads that tie a quilt together the
threads of friendship draw women to-
gether. Each of us is as different and
as vibrant as the fabrics, yams, and
threads with which we work and cre-
ate. Yet, just as the different textures,
colors, and patterns come together in


harmony, so do we. What a bless-
ing that God has created a pattern of
friendship that each of us is a part of
without us even being aware of His
plan for us to share in one anbth-
ers lives. 'Til next time, remember-
Proverbs 17:17; A friend loves at all
times.
A Joyful Heart

Equal Housing Opportunity.


In CONGRESS,

July 4, 1776
When in the Course of human
events, it becomes necessary
for one people to dissolve
the political bands which
have connected them with
another, and to assume among
the powers of the earth, the
separate and equal station
to which the Laws of Nature
and of Nature's God entitle
them, a decent respect to the
opinions of mankind requires
that they should declare the
causes which impel them to the
separation.

We hold these truths to be self-
evident, that all men are created
equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain
unalienable Rights, that among
these are Life, Liberty and the
pursuit of Happiness.

SVL 12 and Under Allstar baseball team wins District 1 tournament in Jasper


By Todd Bryant
SVL's 12U Allstar baseball team
traveled to Jasper to compete in the
District 1 Allstar Tournament with
Live Oak, Lake City, Union County
and Hamilton County. SVL had won
the prior weekend at Mayo to get a
berth in the tournament.
SVL drew Union County for the
first game of the tournament. SVL
lost the coin toss and was the visit-
ing team. Union County (UC) started
their ace pitcher, Dalton Southerland,
a 6 foot tall, hard throwing right
hander that can intimidate most 12
year olds. However, SVL wasn't
running scared. In the first inning
Southerland walked two and struck
out one but didn't give up any runs.
In the bottom of the inning SVL
started Justin Crown on the mound.
Crown struck out the lead off but got
in trouble when he hit the next batter,
followed by a fielder's error, and then
walked Southerland intentionally.
SVL committed another infield error,
allowing a run to score, before Crown
struck out the next two batters.
SVL was playing extremely
tight and it was showing in the de-
fense. With the score 1-0 Souther-
land pitched to Jonathan Rowe who
reached on an error. Rowe moved to
second and third on pass balls, then
scored on a base hit bunt by Crown.
In the bottom of the second, UC led
off with a single but Crown was able
to strike out the next hitter and get out,
of the inning without giving up a run.
At the end of two the score was 1-1.
In the top of the third SVL sent seven
hitters to the plate. Smith led off with
a walk, Hunter Parrish walked, Smith
and Parrish stole the next base put-
ting runners at 2nd and 3rd, then Clif
Bryant hit a hot shot that was mis-
handled by the shortstop, allowing
Smith and Parrish to score. Hunter
Williams bunted Bryant over to 2nd
and Rowe scored Bryant with a hard
grounder that the UC first baseman
mishandled.
In the bottom of the third SVL put
Smith on the hill. Smith gave up two
walks, two hits, and two runs. The
score at the end of three was 4-3,


SVL. Southerland started the fourth
inning for UC. Ozie Parrish drew a
walk, moved to second on a pass ball
and Smith walked. Southerland was
fatigued after throwing 89 pitches
and had to be pulled after 3 1/3 in-
nings. Kite came in for UC and gave
up a single by Bryant that scored Par-
rish, making the score 5-3, SVL.
In the bottom of half of the fourth
SVL's Smith went to the hill again
but had to be replaced by Crown with
1 out and bases loaded. Crown got
the UC hitter to fly out to center for
the second out and the runner at third
scored. However, the UC runner
left third too early, Crown properly
appealed the play to the home plate
umpire, threw the ball to Hunter Wil-
liams at third, and the UC runner
was called out, nulifying the run and
leaving the score at the end of four
innings at 5-3. In the fifth Kite scat-
tered a walk by Crown and a single
by Ozie Parrish to end the SVL threat.
Crown answered Kite and shut down
the 3 UC batters he faced in the fifth.
At the end of 5 innings the score re-
mained 5-3, SVL. In the top of the
sixth Smith singled, moved to 2nd on
a Hunter Parrish sacrifice bunt, Bry-
ant walked, but SVL was not able to
capitalize and score. Leading 5-3
Crown took the mound once more in
the top of the sixth. He had thrown
54 pitches before the sixth inning.
UC's lead off hitter got on with a shot
past SVL's first baseman. He stole
second and third and was scored by
a bunt from the second hitter. SVL
tried to get the runner at home, was
unsuccessful and the bunter got to
first. The score was not 5-4.
The new runner was able to move
to second on a stolen base and to
third on a pass ball. The third batter
bunted to Crown who threw the run-
ner out at home for the first out. The
next two batters walked putting run-
ners on all three bases. SVL decided
to pull Crown and brought in Darren
Skawienski to shut down UC. Big
"D" got the next hitter to strike out
and the last hitter to pop up to SVL's
catcher, Clif Bryant. The score end-
ed 5-4 and SVL advanced to play


Hamilton County (HC). HC had got-
ten a bye in the first round for being
the host team. SVL and HC had met
twice in the District 1 Small League
Tournament with SVL winning both
contests.
The next game of the tournament
was between Live Oak and Lake
City. The two battled it out with Live
Oak scoring five runs in the sixth in-
ning to tie the game and send it into
extra innings. In the eighth inning
Live Oak hit a walk off home run to
win 14-13.
SVL was again the visiting team
against Hamilton County (HC) and
the SVL players came out swinging
in the top of the first inning. Smith
laid down a bunt for a hit. Hunter
Parrish walked. Bryant followed
with a bunt hit down third that scored
Smith. Skawienski bunted down first
for a hit that scored Parrish. Rowe
bunted down third for a hit. Crown
walked to push Bryant across home
plate. SVL's precision bunting had
demoralized HC and the score was
3-0.
SVL started Skawienski on the hill.
In the first inning he faced four bat-
ters, striking out one and giving up
no hits. In the second inning SVL
scored when Hunter Parrish walked,
stole second, and Bryant drove him
in. Skawienski only faced three bat-
ters in the second and the score after
two innings was 4-0. SVL's batters
heated up and in the 3rd inning Jus-
tin Crown led off with a single. Kyle
Wiggins walked and Smith got a hit,
scoring Crown. Hunter Parrish laid
down a sacrifice bunt that scored
Wiggins and Clif Bryant singled in
Smith.
SVL changed pitchers in the bottom
half of the 3rd and called on Hunter
Williams to throw strikes. Williams
faced four batters, gave up one bunt
hit and one run, but got three batters
to ground out and SVL was ahead 7-
1. In the fourth Skawienski led off
with a single, followed by a long,
2-run homer that went over the right
centerfield fence and into the trees
by Rowe, his 11th homer of the year.
Wiggins got on base due to an error,


stole second, and was scored by a
Stephen Smith single.
In the fourth Williams gave up no
hits, but two walks and an error cost
another run. However, SVL had put
the game out of reach. The score was
now 10-2, SVL. In the fifth SVL
hammered HC's pitching for ten
more runs. Bryant led the inning off
with a single and Williams followed
with a 2-run shot to left that easily
cleared the left field wall, his third
round tripper of the year. Skawienski
singled, Crown walked, Ozie Parrish
singled, Kyle Wiggins singled, Smith
singled and Hunter Parrish singled.
SVL had batted thru the line up when'
Bryant doubled, Williams singled,
and Skawienski walked.
In the bottom of the fifth Bryant
pitched and Rowe caught. Bryant
faced three batters and struck out the
final batter to end the inning and the
game due to the "mercy rule." The
final score was 20-2 and SVL had
advanced to the final of the winner's
bracket to play Live Oak on the sec-
ond day.
Union County then took on Lake
City. Union County squeezed out a
6-5 victory. Lake City was eliminat-
ed on the first day of the tournament.
SVL met Live Oak on the second
day. This game would determine who
would move on to play in the Cham-
pionship and who would have to play
in the loser's in order to continue.
SVL was the home team and started
Skawienski. He faced four batters,
struck out two, and gave up no runs.
Smith led off for SVL with a walk,
Bryant walked, Williams singled &
scored Smith, Skawienski ripped a
single to right to score Bryant, and
Rowe singled in Williams. After one
inning the score was in favor of SVL
3-0. In the second inning Skawien-
ski faced three more batters, getting
2 ground outs and a fly ball. In the
second inning SVL had the score
board smoking. Wiggins led off
with a walk, Smith walked, Hunter
Parrish singled Wiggins in, and then
Bryant hit a three run bomb over the
centerfield wall, his 11th of the year.
Williams got on, Skawienski pushed

"mercy rule."
In the other tournament games

Union County then had to play Live
Oak. Live Oak won 7-5 and earned
the opportunity to advance and play.
SVL for the Championship.
SVL didn't have to use Crown on
the 2nd day of the tournament so he
was called on to pitch in the Cham-
pionship. He struggled in the first
inning, giving up two hits, a walk,
and a run. Skawienski was called
in to relieve Crown with the bases
loaded and one out. Skawienski got
a ground ball & a fly ball to get out
of the inning. SVL got their lead off
batter, Smith, on with a single, Hunt-
er Parrish laid down a sacrifice bunt
