Gilchrist County breaks ground on $1.6 million

SEmergency Operations Center

The report cards are in!
For the second year in, a row Gil-
christ County has earned the pres-
tigious title, of being an "A" school
district after each of the four schools
in the county achieved an "A" school
grade for 2006-2007.
The Department of Education
announced school grades for each
school on Friday morning. Reports
indicated that the number of failing
schools in the state has almost qua-
drupled since last year' and the num-
ber of schools that had previously
earned "A" or "B" grades fell more
than six percent.
The numbers have dropped down
from 24 school districts getting an
"A" last year, to Gilchrist County be-
ing just one of 19 school districts in
the state to earn an "A" this year.
Despite the statewide trend, Gil-
christ County 'School's superinten-
dent Buddy Vickers was pleased to
learn that Trenton and Bell schools
-had maintained there "A" status.,
"Our entire community should
be proud of our students, teachers,
support staff, and administrators for


achieving four "A" schools for the
second straight year. This honor is
the direct result of their hard work
and dedication. Our schools are rec-
ognized st.atew ide for our academic
achievements and the commitment
of our> students and staff to master-
ing skills that enable our students to
become life-long learners," Vickers
said.
. Education Commissioner Jeanine
Blomberg said Friday that the state is
right on target in terms of what of-
ficials anticipated would occur this
year.
"One of the major messages here
is that we have raised the bar. Three
times since 2000. That is exactly the
intent in terms of increasing student
performance," Blomberg said.
New hurdles that factored into the
2006-2007 school grades included
science FCAT scores and learning,
gains in mathematics among the low-
est-performing students.
In the tri-county area: Levy and
Columbia Counties received a "C"
school district score, while Dixie
County earned a "B" school district
score and Alachua County achieved
an "A" school district score.

Gilchrist County celebrated a new
beginning for emergency operations
on Wednesday, June 27, as ground
was broken for a new Emergency
Operations Center north of Bell on
US 129.
Carlos Perez welcomed the crowd
to the ceremony at 10 a.m. He thanked
everyone for coming out to mark this.
beginning of a new era in Gilchrist
Emergency Operations.
Perez, director of Gilchrist County
Public Safety, will have offices in
the facility. The building will also
house Emergency Medical Service,
Gilchrist Fire Rescue and other ad-
ministrative offices under emergency
operations. Perez thanked Rob Wil-
lis, former Public Safety Director
for working on the project with Ron
Mills and Ron McQueen to submit
the first grant.
McQueen also recognized the peo-
ple from communities in Gilchrist
County that were attending the cer-
emony. Mayor Pete Randolph and'
City Manager Jered Ottenwess, both
from the City of Trenton, Mrs. Iris
Roberts, president of the Bell Town
Council and Councilman Ray Sand-
ers represented the Town of Bell.
There were many representatives
from state agencies and others from
local government offices as well as
State Emergency Management per-
sonnel.
County Commissioner Randy Dur-
den also thanked everyone for at-
tending this event. Goi iiir, County
began applying for grants to assist in
funding an Emergency Operations
Center centrally located in the county
in 2004. Public Safety Director Rob
Willis submitted one of three grants
that would end up funding a major-
ity of the $1.6 million facility before
accepting an assistant state attorney
position with Bill Cerevone's office.
Ron Mills, Emergency Management
Director, submitted two additional
grants that were also awarded to Gil-
christ County.
Durden spoke for the residents of
Gilchrist County when he expressed
gratitude for the donation of land
from the Wilbur Thomas family.
Thomas donated several acres of land
just south of the Emergency Medical
Services station north of Bell. This
property provided the ideal location
for the new EOC facility. Thomas
was in attendance at the EOC ground
breaking on Wednesday morning.
"We are very proud of this project.
These grants are a real blessing," said
County Commissioner Tommy Lang-
ford. He went on to explain that Gil-
christ County is continuing to move
forward with one, three, five and
ten year plans to upgrade fire rescue
safety in the county.
County Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas expressed his thanks to ev-
eryone who worked with Gilchrist
County to make the EOC facility a
reality.
"I am glad I have the opportunity
to be a part of this," County Commis-
sioner Thomas said.

Mitchell Gentry launches 'incubator for small business' on SR 47 in Gilchrist County


By Carrie A. Mizell
Beneath majestic live oak trees,
alongside State Road 47, a former
Gilchrist County commissioner gaz-
es out over a 12-acre tract of land
known as Tyler Creek and envisions
a business community that will attract
small businesses to Gilchrist County.
Over the last two years, Mitchell
Gentry has worked to develop the 17
one and one half acre lots just north
of Trenton.
"This business community will be
an incubator for small business in the
area," Gentry explained. "We have
just started a marketing plan and will
be doing advertisements and bro-
chures."
Already, four lots have been sold.
A long time personal dream of
Gentry's, the business community
will be anchored by an auto restora-
tion shop that should open within the
next two months.
Huegenics, as the business will be
known, is owned by High Springs
native Chris Dobbs. With a focus
on restoring classic cars and build-
ing street rods, the shop will employ
,two full time workers. With 11 years
experience, Dobbs said he has three
years worth of work lined up.
"Chris is just the type of entrepre-

The North Central Florida Region-

"I know this community is agricul-

a Holiday Inn in Illinois once that had
corn on three sides of it. It [Holiday


Inn] had no impact to the agriculture.
It's important that we have that blend
in Gilchrist County."

neighboring tracts of land to hear
their feelings on the project.
"Everyone I talked with thought,
this would be good for the commu-
nity," Gentry said

The letter to the editor written by
Holli'Moore was a sad letter. To be
deprived of the opportunity to go to
school in peace and safety is some-
thing we all should be up in arms
about. So much is heard concerning
1~ullying and the consequence and
for it to be allowed at Bell, High is a
terrible thing. A person's freedom of
speech ends when it invades another
person's ability to function in safety.
We also have a higher power than the
school board that tells us to treat each
other as we would like to be treated.
Where did that principal go?
' My question is why this is allowed
to continue when the proper authori-
ties knew of the problem. When
do we start protecting the victims?
What is happening in our school sys-
tem where it was a pleasure to go to
school and where are the parents that
qlow our children to bully? Will we-
sit by and stay silent when it is our
dhfild?
It is sad to see our school deterio-
rate because we allow children to be-
have in such a manner. Let's all band
together and insist our students be-


have, do their work and allow others
to do likewise. We are training them
to function in society. Lancaster Cor-
rectional was built to deter students
who failed to learn lawful treatment
of others.

"Forecasts are difficult to make...
particularly about the future." Samu-
el Goldwyn
It is summertime once again and
although the calendar says that sum-
mer officially started a few days ago,
for many of us the season kicks off
with the celebration of Independence
Day.
Depending on your individual pref-
erences, July 4 can have a variety of
interpretations. If you are the outdoor
type, it means the official start of the
beach and barbecue season. For oth-
ers, it is a time to lay back for some
well earned relaxation.
Regardless of how you welcome
the summer season, each year at this
time everyone is asking the same
question...will the stock market will
treat us to a summer rally btdv.een
now aniidLabbirDay, which I define
as the end of summer?
We did not do badly last year. On
July 3, 2006, the Dow Jones indus-
trial average closed at 11,228. By
Sept. 3, the Dow was at 11,464 for
an increase of 2 percent or 12 percent
annually. The S&P 500 tracked an
identical return, beginning the period
at 1,280 and ending at 1,311.
So is a summer rally likely this
year? From a statistical viewpoint,
70 years of data show July as being
the best month for stock prices in
terms of percentage gain. Further-
more, the Dow has rallied during 57
of the past 62 summers. Of course, if
you subscribe to the theory that the
stock market represents a series of
independent events, then a rally has
exactly the same statistical probabil-
ity as no rally.
At the same time, there is no doubt
that the annual expectation of a sum-
mer rally is partially the byproduct
of the fiction and fantasy that always
seems to envelop Wall Street. At its'
worst, the folklore simply contributes
to the market's overall mystique. At


He Had A Perfect Heart
(Kent Heaton)


"For it came to pass, when Solomon was old, that his
wives turned away his heart after other gods: and his
heart was not perfect with the Lord his God, as was the
heart of David his father" (1 Kings 11:4). The legacy of
King Solomon is established in the wealth of his wisdom,
power and wealth. The queen of Sheba declared,
""Behold, the half was not told me. You exceed in
wisdom and prosperity the report which I heard", (1
Kings 10:7). Solomon was the final king of the united
Israel and. after his death the kingdom disintegrated into
chaos and division. With all his wisdom the heart of
Solomon was unlike the heart of his father. Allowing the
foreign wives to influence him, Solomon was led away
from his devotion to the true and living God.
David had a perfect heart because he was devoted to
the Lord. He was a man whom Paul said was after the
heart of God (Acts 13:22) because he was willing to do
all the will of the Lord. The Psalmist declares of himself
that he "will behave myself wisely in a perfect way"
(Psalm 101:2). King David pleads with his son, Solomon
to "know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with
a perfect heart and with a willing mind" (1 Chronicles
28:9). Hanani the seer told Asa king of Judah, "the eyes
of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole
earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them
whose heart is perfect toward him" (2 Chronicles 16:9).
The second king of Israel served the Lord with a
perfect heart yet he is forever remembered with the sin of
Bathsheba. "Because David did that which was right in
the eyes of the LORD, and turned not aside from any


thing that he commanded him all the days of his life,
save only in the matter of Uriah the Hittite ... And
Jesse begat David the king; and David the king begat
Solomon of her that had been the wife of Uriah" (1
Kings 15:5; Matthew 1:6). The heart of David was
perfect not in the character of sinless perfection but the
devotion he had for Jehovah God. His heart was wholly
devoted to the will of God even in his frail state of sinful
imperfection.
We bear a heavy burden when the guilt of sin weighs
our hearts down with our worthless nature before God.
This can become a burden so large that we fail to find
joy and peace in serving Him. We are so undeserving
that we believe that salvation is merely a whim of
chance that we likely will never see. We are the
wretched man of Romans 7:24 living without hope.
David reminds us that even the great men of God are
challenged with sin. His sin was so great and the
consequences continued for decades after his death. Yet,
hope springs eternal in God's love and mercy for David.
Psalm 32 and 51 declare the joy of sins forgiven through
confession of a contrite heart one perfect before God -
one wholly devoted to the Lord. We can rise from the
ashes of sinful imperfection to believe in the salvation of
a loving and merciful God. "These things I have
written to you who believe in the name of the Son of
God, so that you may know that you have eternal life.
This is the confidence which we have before Him, that,
if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us"
(1 John 5:13-14).

best, many long-time observers of
the stock market are willing to con-
cede that the stock market does ex-
hibit certain seasonal tendencies.
The other side of the coin is that
Wall Street is considered to be a for-
ward looking indicator for the econo-
my. If that is the case then you could
rightfully argue that the road ahead
may have a few potholes.
For example, a continuing rise in
oil prices is more than capable of
upsetting the apple cart. Yes, we are
awash in oil for the moment because
refinery disruptions have backed up
stocks for the past several months.
However, if refinery utilization
climbs, we could use up those barrels
painfully fast.
There is also the ever expanding
backwash from the subprime mort-
gage market debacle, along with a
housing market that continues to be
on life support. Nonetheless, the Fed
continues to hold the position that it
expects the economy will continue to
recover despite those difficulties.
Everything else aside, it is our old
nemesis the inflation genie that will
determine our fate going forward this
summer. The Fed has continually
stated that inflation is of paramount
concern. By the time you read this,
the Fed will have released its public
statement following its most recent
Open Market Committee meeting. .
The aggressiveness of the Fed's-
.--stance on inflation going forx\ ard,
which will be alluded to in :hat state-
ment, will determine to a consider-
able degree the extent of this sum-
mer's market rall\.
Now before I ruin the start of your
summer vacation, let me add that, as
opposed as I am to short-term market
forecasting, I believe Wall Street has
a better than even money chance of
looking beyond the current economic
difficulties with a view towards a
smoother road up ahead. If it does so
then we could easily have a summer
rally.
However, the market's overall
performance is not the key determi-
nant of how your portfolio performs.
While it may be easier to select stocks
in a rising market, there are always
profitable investment opportunities
available if you are willing to expend
a modicum of time and effort to find
them.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


Sunday morning in church we sang
America the Beautiful, I noticed at
the bottom of the page of the hymnal
that the song was written by Kather-
ine Lee Bates. After a little research
I found that Ms. Bates wrote it as a
poem in 1913 after she had visited
14,000-foot Pikes Peak.
Ms. Bates was a long-time pro-
fessor at Wellesley College in Mas-
sachusetts. She surely did not know
that her hastily written four stanzas
on her trip west in 1893 would be-
come such a beloved song to Ameri-
cans. Atop Pikes Peak in Colorado
Springs, Colorado she was so im-
pressed by the beauty that she wrote
the now famous words.
"One day some of the teachers and
I decided to go on a trip to 14,000-
foot Pikes Peak. We hired a prairie
wagon. Near the top wehad to leave
the wagon and go the rest of the way
on mules. I was very tired. But when
I saw the view, I felt great joy. All the
wonder of America seemed displayed
there, with the sea-like expanse."
Bates wrote.
Mrs. Bates taught at Wellesley Col-
lege for 50 years and'died at the age
of 70. During her years of teaching
she took several sabbaticals and trav-
eled abroad. She visited the Middle
East and Europe.
As we sang America the Beautiful
it took me back to elementary school
in Chiefland where each morning
we began class by singing patriotic
songs like America the Beautiful and
folk songs such as Old Suzanna. Af-
ter several songs we said the Pledge
of Allegiance and prayed. This was


much work to be done, but we are
looking at early September for the
new "Gilchrist Guide" to be in circu-
lation.

Reminder: Farmers' Market at the
Trenton Depot Tuesday afternoons
from 2:00 PM-7:00 PM. Character
trait for thle month of July is: "Media-,
tor" definition: "Is deeply loyal and
compassionate, analyzing the benefits
and problems of a given direction"


how each and every morning began
in school back then. I remember try-
ing to stand up straight and tall with
my then small hand spread across the
right side of my chest. Sunday morn-
ing I felt that old familiar lump of pa-
triotism rise in my throat as we sang,
"0. beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed His grace on thee
And crowned thy good with broth-
erhood
From sea to shining sea!"
Those words just make you proud
to be an American don't they? God
has truly shed his grace on- us as a
country.
Happy 4th of July y'all.

The following recipe was given to
me my by good friend Karen Gore
who got it from another good friend
Patricia Yates. When two friends like
the same recipe you just know it's go-
ing to be good. In this case its real
good and easy too,


2 8-ounce blocks of cream cheese
1 large can chicken (Karen uses
chicken breast chunks)
1 package Hidden Valley Ranch
Dressing Mix
Mix together and chill overnight.
Before serving, roll in almond sliv-
ers, walnuts or chopped pecans.
Serve with crackers, we like Captain
Wafers.

Lyme disease
Approximately 22,000 new cases
of Lyme disease are reported each
year, according to tl~e national Lyme
Disease Association. In addition, the
Center for Disease Control and Pre-
vention (CDC) reports that children,
ages 5 9, are the most likely demo-
graphic to become infected by tick-
borne diseases and suffer from the
Lyme and Lyme-like illnesses.
Even more troubling is the fact
that dogs are 50 to 100 times more
likely than their human companions
to be infected by a tick-borne disease
spread by the bite of a tick. And as
pets continue to play in the same ar-
eas as our children, dogs have a sig-
nificant ability to act as sentinels for
the various tick-borne disease, infec-
tions potentially affecting other pets,
children and family members.
With spring fight around the cor-
ner, it's important to, remind readers
of the dangers of ticks and tick-borne

Florida's Middle and
High School students
ignored by No Child
Left Behind according
to new policy brief from
Alliance for Excellent
Education
Congress is currently considering
changes in major federal education
law; as part of the process, they must
recognize that the pressing needs of
Florida's 755,000 high school stu-
dents, including the 40 percent who
do not graduate on time with a regu-
lar diploma, are not being met by
the existing No Child Left Behind
(NCLB) law. Federal neglect of sec-
ondary schools is described in a new
policy 'brief, In Need of Improve-
ment: NCLB and High Schools, from
the Alliance for Excellent Education.
"While well-intentioned," states
Bob Wise, President of the Alliance
for Excellent Education and former
governor of West Virginia, "the cur-
rent NCLB simply does not address
the dropout problem and permits
. far too many students to finish high
school without adequate preparation
for college or the modem workforce."
Nationally, 70 percent of high school
students entering, ninth grade do not
graduate within four years.
While the existing NCLB focuses
on improving outcomes for students
in kindergarten through 8th grade, In
Need of Improvement: NCLB and
High Schools points out that high
schools do not receive the attention
and investment needed to support
their students' continuing academic
success. Florida high school stu-
dents are shortchanged by the exist-,
ing NCLB because:
-only a small percentage of high
school students are actually covered
by federal Title I funding, leaving far
too many high schools without the


requirements or resources to imple-
ment improvement strategies.
-NCLB holds schools accountable
for test scores, but does not effec-
tively hold high schools accountable
for whether their students actually
graduate.
-75 percent of Florida's eighth
graders read below a proficient level,
yet there is no federal effort to im-
prove reading and comprehension in
middle and high school as there is in
grades K-3.
-the limited tools NCLB provides
to improve low-performing schools
reflect neither research nor best prac-
tice and are not effective for high
school reform.
Wise continues, "The present
NCLB does not effectively reach high
schools, and too many children are
being left behind by the ninth grade.
With the law up for renewal this year,
this is the time to build on the ide-
als of 'no child left behind' and pass
legislation that will lead the nation
toward 'every child a graduate.'
Instead of what the brief calls
"shortsighted proposals" that merely
extend testing requirements to high
schools or simply reserve portions
of current funding streams for high
schools, the Alliance calls on Con-
gress to reauthorize NCLB with a
"a systemic solution that reflects all
that is known about improving high
schools from research and best prac-
tice."
According to Wise, "Research and
best practice have demonstrated that
there is no excuse for failing to ad-
dress .the needs of our high school
students. NCLB reauthorization must
include provisions to improve the
calculation of'graduation rates, in-
vest in data systems, support educa-
tors, drive meaningful accountability
linked to high school improvement,
and ensure the necessary resources
and capacity to provide an excellent
education for every student. Some
of these issues are addressed in exist-
ing proposals from Members of Con-
gress, including the Striving Readers
Act of 2007 (S. 958 and H.R. 2289)
and the Graduation Promise Act (S.
1185)."


Physical Therapists
Graduate
The Physical Therapist Assistant
pinning ceremony was held on Mon-
day, June 25 in the Lake City Medi-
cal Center Auditorium of the Barney
E. McRae Jr. M.D., Medical Technol-
ogy Building.
Nineteen physical therapist as-
sistant students graduated from the
Physical Therapist Assistant program
at Lake City Community College.
These students are academically pre-
pared to formally enter into the field
of the physical therapy practice. At
this point in time, physical therapist
assistant jobs are plentiful and LCCC
graduates can pick and choose their
place of employment.

"Student Assistant:" Behind

the Mask


.AVW


Chris Mabrey
By Christopher Mabrey, Lake City
Community College liberal arts stu-
dent and student assistant
Every weekday I grab the famil-
iar wrench-like key and twist the.
row of entry doors unlocked. An-
other unique, grooved key ignites the
bright track lights, acting as a mobile
switch to prevent the passerby from
extinguishing the light. One quick
sweep through the lobby to make
sure everything is orderly, switch on
a few remaining lights, and then it is
finally time to enter the box office. I
exchange a few words with my boss
then take a seat at my homey office
chair. It is here, answering messages
as indicated by my phone's ominous
red light, that my day as a student as-
sistant officially begins; that is, until
my first class. To dispel some mys-
tery of the role, working as a student
assistant does have its benefits, but
the position is definitely not without
working merit.
I have been working as a student
assistant at the Levy Performing Arts
.Center (PAC) of Lake City Commu-
:nity College (LCCC) since January
,2006. "Student assistant" means I
am an LCCC student in an on-cam-
pus working position. I work Mon-
:day through Friday at varied times
through the typical 8:30-4:30 grind.


(And yes, the PAC is indeed open
even when there is no performance.)
My job is to assist Joan Fetchen,
LCCC community cultural services
director. She handles the major work,
like booking performances and facili-
tating use of the building, in addition
to many other daily responsibilities.
Under her direction I take the pri-
mary phone calls, handle some of the
minor paperwork, run errands around
campus, and organize and file mail-
ing lists, among other things. On oc-
casion, 1 am able to design or co-de-
sign items like posters or flyers. I also
help maintain the art exhibits the PAC
hosts, which bolsters art from LCCC
students to that of the Art League of
North Florida.
Of course, since the PAC hosts
many great performances year round,
I also take on the role of "house man-.
ager." During a performance, such as
those of our Lyceum Series, I make
sure the building is functioning prop-
erly, the present cast and crew have
their needs met, and I perform other
jobs like selling tickets.
Being both behind the scenes and
on the stage is a job that I simply can-
not ask to be more fulfilling. How-
ever, my job duties are only the as-
sistant part of my job title. After one
year and a few months of working at
the PAC, I can firmly say that any-
one who has "student" as his or her
occupation and wants a part time job
should seek out a student assistant
position. This student aspect is where
many of the aforementioned benefits
are reaped.
First and foremost, my job rec-
ognizes the fact that I am a student
struggling through the same work as
the rest of the student population. I
have, at the very least, one class ev-
ery day, and in most cases I have no
control over what time I am able to
take a class. This sort, of schedule
would probably pose a problem for
an off-campus job. Luckily, being a
student assistant gives me flexibility
so that I am able to attend classes,
even if they are spaced throughout


the day. Homework is another im-
portant part of college. When there is
a lull in work, this "fun" (agonizing
homework) is encouraged, meaning
less work to worry about that night.
Other student responsibilities are also
acknowledged, like student events.
Thus, the title "student assistant" fits
the description in that it allows me to
be a student even though 1 am work-
ing.
Other benefits to the position sim-
ply cannot be measured. Many re-
sponsibilities and obligations in my
office have given me experience for
future endeavors. Furthermore, I have
also been able to see several perfor-
mances over the past year, each with
an enormous amount of culture to
offer. As a result, I have met famous
American icons and people from all
over the world, some of which put
even Lake City's strongest southern
accents to shame. Regardless, I have
been able to experience many enrich-
ing things that I simply could not
have otherwise.
This is what it has been like for
me as a student assistant at LCCC.
My job has opened up numerous op-
portunities for me and I have deeply
enjoyed every minute of it. Working
as a student assistant involves a lot of
work, just like any other job, but the
experience is supremely rewarding.

testing, are also Title -1 schools.
Title 1 schools are on the free break-
fast and free lunch program. When I
say free breakfast, I'm not talking
a glass of milk and roll -- but a full
breakfast and cereal bar with fruits
and juices that would make a Marri-
ott proud. The waste of this food is
monumental, with trays and trays of
it being damped in the trash uneaten.
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I estimate that well over 50% of
these students are obese or at least
moderately overweight. About 75%
or more DO have cell phones. The
school also provides day care centers
for the unwed teenage pregnant girls
(some as young as 13) so they can at-
tend class without the inconvenience
of having to arrange for babysitters
or having family watch their kids.
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I was ordered to spend $700,000
on my department or risk losing
funding for the upcoming year even
though there was little need for any-
thing; my budget was already sub-
stantial.. I ended up buying new
computers for the computer-lealh-
ing center, half of which, one month
later, have been carved with graffiti
by the appreciative students who ob-
viously feel humbled and grateful to
have a free education in America.
(OUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK)
I have had to intervene several
times for young and substitute teach-
ers whose classes consist of many
illegal immigrant students here
in the country less than 3 months
who raised so much hell with the
female teachers, calling them "Pu-


tas" whores and throwing things
that the teachers were in tears.
Free medical, free education, free
food, day care etc., etc., etc. Is it
any wonder they feel entitled to not
only be in this country but to demand
rights, privileges and entitlements?
To those who want to point out
how much these illegal immi-
grants contribute to our society,
because they LIKE their gardener
and housekeeper and they like to
pay less for tomatoes, spend some
time in the real world of illegal im-
migration and see the TRUE costs.
Higher insurance, medical facili-
ties closing, higher medical costs,
more crime, lower standards of edu-
cation in our schools, overcrowd-
ing, new diseases etc., etc, etc. For
me, I'll pay more for tomatoes.
We need to wake up. The guest
worker program will be a disas-
ter because we won't have the
guts to enforce it. Does anyone in
their right mind really think they
will voluntarily leave and return?
There are many hardworking His-
panic/American citizens that con-
tribute to our country and many
that I consider my true friends.
We should encourage and ac-
cept those Hispanics who have
done it the right and legal way.
It does, however, have everything
to do with culture: A third-world
culture that does not value educa-
tion, that accepts children getting
pregnant and dropping out of school
by 15 and that refuses to assimilate,
and an American culture that has
become so weak and worried about
"politically correct" that we don't
have the will to do anything about it.
CHEAP LABOR? Isn't that what
the whole immigration issue is about?
Business doesn't want to pay a decent
wage. Consumers don't want expen-
sive produce. Government will tell
you Americans. don't want the jobs.
But the bottom line is cheap la-
bor. The phrase "cheap labor". is
a myth,, a farce, and a lie. There
is no such thing as "cheap labor."
Take, for example, an illegal alien
with a wife and five children. He
takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour.
At that wage, with six dependents,
he pays no income tax, yet at the
end of the year, if he files an Income
Tax Return, he gets an "earned in-
come credit" of up to $3,200 free.
He qualifies for Section 8 housing
and subsidized rent. He qualifies for
food stamps. He qualifies for free
(no deductible, no co-pay) health
care. His children get free break-
fasts and lunches at school. He re-

Pvt. Francis Marion Shaw short-
ly after the end of Civil War.
On July 6, 1864, on Station Four
at Cedar Keys, Florida, there was a
small skirmish between a company
of Union troops who had ventured
out of the garrison at Cedar Key, and
a small contingent of Confederate
Florida Reservists who were camped
at Otter Creek. The encounter didn't
amount to much more than two or
three thrusts from the Confederates,
and a withdrawal of the Union troops
back to the protection of the keys.
Several Union soldiers were wound-
ed, and two Confederate soldiers: Pri-
vate Francis Marion Shaw, a reservist
from Berrien County, Georgia, and
Lt. Joshua A. Jones from New River
County, Florida near Sanderson, both
receiving severe wounds. Private
Shaw was wounded in the arm and
had the arm amputated in Lake City
four days later. Lt. Jones recovered.
from his wound and returned to his
command. The two soldiers neither
saw nor heard from each other again.
Such is often the way of war, espe-
cially that war.
Nearly one hundred forty-four years
later on May 2, 2007, near Trenton,
Florida in Gilchrist County, on the
front porch of Lizzie Mae Jones Wat-
son, great-granddaughter of Lt. Josh-
ua Jones, a remarkable reunion took
place. Phillip Watson, son of Lizzie
Mae, and Bryan Shaw, second great-
grandson of Pvt. Francis Marion
Shaw, extended their hands in greet-
ing, and the legacy of two Civil War
veterans bridged the span of time.
After the war, the lives of these two


Francis Marion Shaw in his later
years, about 1910.
Confederate soldiers took them each
in different geographic directions.
Pvt. Shaw was sent home to Berrien
County after his amputation, and re-
covered there until the end of the war.
In 1865 he married Rachel Allen, a
widow of a Confederate soldier who
already had three children by that
marriage. They added 6 more of their
own. He spent his life as a one-armed
farmer, .clearing a 600-acre planta-
tion, building a log and clapboard
home, and raising all 9 children to
maturity. He died on September 23,
1922 in Ray City, Georgia near his
life-long home.
Lt. Jones, who recovered from his
wounds at Cedar Keys, was also
wounded in the battle at Natural
Bridge, and again at a skirmish at
Darby Mill. He was mustered out of
service at the end of the war and re-
turned to his Sanderson, Florida home,
where he married his wife Sarah and
the couple started their large family
of nine children. By 1880 the Jones
family had moved to Levy County
near the community of Judson on the
Gilchrist County line. He, too, made
his livelihood farming,'and lived out
his life on that farm near Judson. He
died on November 18, 1903, and is
buried in an old family cemetery on
his farm property. The descendants
of Lt. Jones were reared mostly on
or near the old soldier's farm. Even
today many still live within a few
miles of the old home place, and are
involved in the Levy and Gilchrist
county communities.

Unusual Search for family of a Civil War Veteran leads

Georgia residents to Levy and Gilchrist Counties


Though Pvt. Shaw and all of his
children remained in Georgia, sev-
eral of the grandchildren eventually
migrated to Florida. By the begin-
ning of WWII, the great-grandchil-
dren of this veteran had spread
throughout the country. One great-
grandson, Charles Bruner Shaw, Jr.
was stationed in Boise, Idaho, where
he met and. married Velda Simpson.
The couple's second-born child was
Bryan Shaw, who found great fasci-
nation in stories his grandmother and
father told of the old veteran of the
Civil War-"One Arm Marion" as he
was called. This fascination turned
into an obsession to learn about the
life of that old veteran and his fam-.
ily. Bryan turned his obsession into
a retirement dream when he moved
to Nashville, Georgia and bought and
restored the old Victorian home of
his great-uncle Chester Shaw, son of
"One Arm Marion."
Two years ago, Bryan's son, Lu-
cas Shaw, also a historical researcher,
called him and asked how much he
knew about Lt. Jones, who was also
wounded at Cedar Key, July 6, 1864.
Bryan indicated that his earlier re-
search suggested that Lt. Jones had
died from his wounds. Lucas revealed
that he had come across a diary entry
of a member of their regiment that
mentioned the skirmish and identi-
fied the wounds of both soldiers. It
stated therein that Pvt. Shaw had his
arm amputated, however Lt. Jones
.had survived his wounds. This in-
formation prompted Lucas to search
the Confederate pension records of
Lt. Joshua Jones. His widow and sec-
ond wife, Lucinda Delilah Jones, had
filed for a widow's pension in Levy
County in 1907, and therein she states
that Lt. Jones was wounded at Ce-
dar Keys, Natural Bridge and Darby
Mill, and that he survived all three.
SThis information sent young Shaw
into the census records of Joshua A.
Jones in Levy County. Shortly most
of the children and grandchildren of
Lt. Jones were identified. Over the
past two years, extensive searches
of census records, newspaper obitu-
aries, and court records helped the
Shaw father and son team to identify
surviving descendants of Lt. Joshua
A. Jones.
This spring the duo decided to make
a pilgrimage back to the battle site
and to the settlement that Lt. Jones
called home in his later years. They
had contacted Addy Jones, brother


of Lizzie Mae Jones Watson, before
they made their trip. They were ter-
ribly disappointed to find that Mr.
Jones had passed away a few months
before their visit. However his wife
and daughter sent them down the
road to his sister's home. And there
after almost a century and a half, the
history of Lt. Jones and Pvt. Shaw
was rejoined.
One other unusual connection was
discovered in Mr. Shaw's research
and visit to Levy and Gilchrist coun-
ties. Bryan married a Moultrie, Geor-
gia lady, Linda Jones (no relation),
whose mother just happened to be
from Levy County, Florida. She was
Wanda Faye Garner, daughter of
Henry Garner, former game warden
from Levy County. That is unusual
enough, however while visiting de-
scendants of Joshua A. Jones, Bryan
was introduced to Lomer Rogers,
who is the great grandson of Joshua
Jones. His mother was Lizzie Gar-
ner Rogers-yes that's right. The
sister of Henry Garner, Mrs. Shaw's
grandfather. You can't tell Bryan and
Lucas Shaw that family history is not
fascinating.
Bryan Shaw publishes a Shaw
family organization newsletter, and
intends to publish details of their
findings in an upcoming issue. Their
hope was to locate photographs of
Joshua A. Jones and his children and
grandchildren. That search continues
and he appeals to anyone who may be
able to help in the search. If you have
any information regarding this article
please contact Bryan Shaw at P.O.
Box 417, Nashville, GA 31639 or
email to onearmshaw@mchsi.com.

Attorney General
McCollum announces
sentencing of repeat
offender
Attorney General Bill McCollum
today announced the sentencing of
a ten-time convicted Miami-Dade
County man to twenty-nine years
in prison for committing racketeer-
ing and grand grand theft. Charlie Watson,
36, pled guilty in connection with a
theft ring operating in a number of
north central Florida counties includ-
ing Bradford, Alachua, Columbia,
Union, Levy, Clay and Dixie. The
majority of the thefts were off-road
ATVs and high-end lawn cutting
equipment. The case was prosecuted
by the Jacksonville Bureau of the At-
torney General's Office of Statewide
Prosecution.
In October 2004, an informant
tipped off Union County investiga-
tors that Joseph Ford, 23, and his
brother James Ford, 28, were in-
volved in a widespread theft ring
along with their cousin Charlie Wat-
son. The Fords later confessed to the
crimes and told investigators Watson
would pay them $1,000 cash for each
item stolen. Watson would then use
his personal pickup truck to transport
the stolen items out of North Florida.
The stolen ATVs and lawn cutting
equipment were later resold in the
Miami area.The total amount of loss
exceeded $300,000.
The case was filed in the Third
Judicial Circuit in front of Colum-
bia County Circuit Judge E. Vernon
Douglas. The case was investigated
by the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement Gainesville Field Of-
fice, the Attorney General's Office,
and the Union and Levy County
Sheriff's Offices.

". Our Last Goodbyes -

,. Evetn though we are miles apart, our hearts
arPd our love will never part. You came into
iy life as a friend, but then somehow we
became lovers. We never thought we would
ever have to say goodbye, but the goodLord made it out to be this
way. I never thought I would go. this early, but there was a reason
why I got this illness. This illness came upon me without any
warning, and it took over the rest of my life. You stood by my side
through all my pain and suffering. You stood by me through some
of my hardest days and nights. You were so brave my love, oh
please baby don't cry. For I am better off in the hands of the
Lord. I promise you, I will not suffer and I will not cry anymore,
for I have gone to heaven. This is my final wish and my last good-
bye, please let someone find a cure for all chronic illness.
My prayers are with you, Jennifer Johnson (Dampier)

Two Perry residents
killed in boating
accident
Two Perry residents were killed
Thursday evening in a personal wa-
tercraft accident in Crawfordville.
Zoe Stoyer, 46, and Sarah Elise
Pomeroy, 14, were being towed on
a raft behind a personal watercraft
operated by Susan Wells, 55, also of
Perry, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) officials.
Stoyer and Pomeroy were being
pulled back toward land when they
hit a dock. Stoyer apparently also hit
a cypress tree next to the dock, FWC
officials said.
The Wakulla County Sheriff's Of-
fice notified FWC of the accident, and
emergency medical services person-
nel also responded. EMS pronounced
both victims dead at the scene. Stoyer
and Pomeroy were taken to the medi-
cal examiner's office in Tallahassee
to determine the cause of death.

Milliken fell into the water and
was unable to reach the rescue ring
thrown to him. The boat's captain,
Glen D. Huls, 47, of Hilliard, dove
into the water with the ring and swam
to Milliken who had been face down
in the water for approximately three
minutes, according to FWC officials.
Huls and Joseph Jenkins Jr., 52, of
Fernandina Beach, were able to bring
Milliken back onboard the trawler.
Huls performed CPR, but Milliken
was unresponsive.
Emergency medical services per-
sonnel met the vessel at the Amelia
Shrimp Docks and pronounced Mil-
liken dead at the scene, FWC offi-
cials said.
Nassau County Sheriff's Office
personnel and Nassau Fire and Res-
cue also responded to the accident.
The vessel, named Lady Suzy
"Q," is a 66-foot, 1976 St. Augustine
trawler.
FWC is continuing the investiga-
tion into the accident.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Read All About It: 80 kids attend Trenton Library's

summer reading program


By Carrie A. Mizell
Eighty children and 20 parents
crowded into the Trenton Library last
Thursday to participate in "Read All
About It," a four-week summer read-
ing program.
Under the direction of Jennifer
Geiger, the summer program featured
special guests, snacks, crafts and sto-
ries.
According to Wilma Mattucci, li-
brary manager, the quality of the 2007
program was exceptional, thanks to
the efforts of Geiger, who orchestrat-
ed creative ideas like decorating the
meeting room with different sections
of a newspaper. The newspapers
were placed on the walls in different
sections and children were given ar-
ticles and told to read the articles and
place each one under its appropriate
section of the newspaper.
"The children loved it!" Mattucci
said.
Nine volunteers helped Geiger each
week with the fun and educational
programs. Special guests included:
Smokey the Bear and Division of
Forestry representatives; Carolyn
Cohen, a local author and artist who
shared African American stories and
music with the children; Red Cross
representatives gave a program on
germs and Sgt. Allen Aderholt closed
out the summer program with a talk
on safety.
"The week we learned about germs
was so interesting. A glitter substance
was placed on each child's hands and
when the lights were turned out, the
germs glowed in the dark," Mattucci
said. "Did you know that when you
sneeze you should not cover your
nose with your hand? Instead you
should use the crook of your arm.
We learned that if you use the crook
of your arm it cuts down on passing,
germs around."
Several area businesses contribut-


Jennifer Geiger, director of the Trenton Library summer reading program, reads to children and parents
who attended the four week program.


ed to the success of the summer read-
ing program: Hitchock's Foodway,
Wal-Mart, Drummond Community
Bank, Burger Spot, Teeko Graphics,
Trenton High School and Hungry
Howie's.
Just because the summer reading
program has ended does not mean that
the fun will stop at Trenton Library.
On Thursday, beginning July12 and
running through August and Septem-
ber, the Trenton Library will hold a
pre-school program for children ages
two to five. (The library is flexible on
children's ages). The program, which
will begiM at 11 a.m. each Thursday
will feature exercises, stories, crafts
and puppet shows.
On Saturday, July 21 Representa-
tive Cliff Steams, or a representative
from his office, will be at the Tren-
ton Library to hear Gilchrist County
residents' concerns and answer ques-
tions.

Church of the Nazarene to

host Down Home Days


"We started talking with the Cham-
ber a month ago about taking this on,"
Yencho explained. "Anumber of us at
the church were dissapointed to hear
that Down Home Days had been can-
celled. We hated to see it fade away
so we began talking about someone
doing it. About that time the church
came up with a financial need."
Though it has been picked up by
members of the Church of Nazerene,
Yencho said the event will have no
religious affiliation.
A member of the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce himself, Yen-
cho said the Chamber was thrilled
with the fact that the Church of the
Nazarene will host Down Home
Days.
"The agreement is if the Chamber
wants to get it back next year then we
will give it back. If they want to host


Continued from Page 14
it next year on our grounds that -will
be okay. This is a way to keep Down
Home Days'in the community," Yen-
cho said.
A Down Home Days beauty pag-
eant is currently being discussed as
well as a bake off as possible addi-
tions to this year's event.
"We are trying to involve more
local vendors. We are not going to
exclude all vendors, but we hope to
have more local vendors," Yencho
said. "I think Down Home ,Days
was originally intended to be a local
event."
The committee anticipates having
100 vendors this year, therefore ven-
dors are being accepted immediately.
For more information, call John
Yencho at 463-7282, Bill Martin at
463-7439 or Merle Goodrich at 463-
1057.
