A 2002 ;'.iaduic of Trenton High

was awarded a Purple Heart on June
26,2007 for wounds he ,wcc .il as a
result of 1i,, .1nl actions in Iraq.
It was during the early nm1uiiniW.

came at the Humvee he was driving.

was listed in stable condition before
being flown to Ramstein, Germany,
where he underwent two additional
surgeries before being transported
back to the United States. Since late
May, McQuiston has been treated at
Walter Reed Army Me-dic'al Center in
Washington D.C.
Last Friday, McQuiston was re-
leased from the hospital and allowed
to fly home to Gilchimt County. Still


the soldier's journey home was not
easy.
McQuiston explained that he

Despite the familiarity of home,
McQtikion said he would rather be

"People keep thanking me and I
don't understand why?! I'm here and

Emergency Management

Chief feels county is ready

for hurricane season


By Carrie A. Mizell
Ron N I I,. t I ilchi t County Emer-
-cL1c\ Management (h'l1. believes
that a number of hurricane prepa-
ration measures which have been
implemented since a series of dev-
s.iatin hurricanes ripped through
the state in 2"'(-4 will better prepare
Gilchrist County in the event of a
hurricane.
Emergency management officials,
nationally recognized forecasters and
various state officials convened at a
state emergency operations meeting
in May tq go over plans for the 2007
" urr.iv an, which 'ffiiall be-
gan June 1,
"We try to answer the who, what
and why questions while doing 'what
if' exercises," Mills said. "Table top
exercises included what to do in case
the v, est i.le ,of the county was wiped
out."
At the meeting Mills confirmed
that community avenues were open
with the state while receiving the lat-
est state information regarding the
2007 hurricane season, which has al-
ready been labeled "very active," as
well as forecasters' predictions of 17
nained sIonuns forming in theAtlantic
between June 1 and Nov. 30.
In the event of a hurricane threat-
ening the GulfCoastregion, Gilchrist
County officials would likely open its
three hurricane shelter sites: Trenton
!elneCi tjari, School and Bell Elemen-
tary School as well as a special needs
shelter at Bell Health Academy. Billy
Smith Watermelons on SR 47 is also
equipped to serve as a supply distri-
bution center again this year, accord-
ing to Mills, who also explained that
debris contracts are in place should
a hurricane hit the area leaving mas-
sive amounts of debris.
In 2i')14, 30 families were housed
in Federal Emergency Management
Agency IFE_ IAl trailers at Ellie
Ra.%'. in northern Gilchrist County.
This service has been expanded to,
include a site in southern Gilchrist
C i:nItr, as well, Mills explained.
"There are always a number of un-
answered needs and questions that
we try to meet," Mills said. "Our pri-
mary concern is citizen's safety,"
Uil:lizing a Code Red System,
Mills explained that he can send out
a telephone warning that would dial
out to nearly 7,000 phone numbers
within the county notifying residents
of possible emergency situations or

Emergency Management Chief
critical community alerts. Residents
who are unsure if their phone number
is on the call list should visit Gilchrist
County's website at http://gilchrist.
fl.us and click on the Code Red tab
to fill out appropriate, information.
Examples of possible notifications
include: evacuation notices, missing
child reports, bio-terrorism alerts,
and boil water notices.
Since 2004, Gilchrist County has
received several grants through the
Emergency Operations Center which
will fund a mega-generator the size
of a 50 ft. trailer that will soon be in-.
stalled to meet the need for air condi-
tioning at the county's special needs
shelter; Also, five 48 ft. trailers, ad-
ditional generators and a fuel depot
with a capacity of 10,000 gallons of
gasoline and 10,000 gallons of diesel
will aid the county in the event of a
hurricane. Through a hazard mitiga-
tion grant, a new roof and hurricane
proof shutters have been installed on
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
investigation building, which would
serve as headquarters in the event of
a hurricane until the new Emergency
Operations Center can be built.
"Gilchrist County has received
well over a half million dollars for
various projects relating to emer-
gency operations/' Mills said. "Still
there is a misconception among peo-
ple that in the event of a hurricane
FEMAwill be right here to help us as
soon as we need them. We need to be
able to stand alone for a minimum of
72 hours before any help is received.
Wdmust be able to take care of our-
selves!"

It's A Miracle...Matthew Lancaster Returns Home


By Cindy Jo Ayers,
Many consider Matthew's home
coming last Saturday a miracle.
Matthew Lancaster came home
in style being driven home from
Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital in
Jacksonville in'a Candie's Production
limo.
SA few short weeks ago Matthew was
just a typical seven-year-old running
around in the yard playing with his
brother Major and sister Mariah. He
was a regular ol' Gilchrist County
boy riding the bus to school and
playing with his friends at Awana on
Wednesday nights. Mattliew's father
Deen and his grandfather Howell
Lancaster fished with the boys at the
Shriners' Fishing Tournament just the
weekend before he suddenly became
gravely ill. His grandfather Lancaster
who is also known ag Big Daddy to
his grandchildren said that Matthew
is a real outdoors boy who loves
fishing, catching crabs and watching
the fishing channel on TV while other
kids his age are watching cartoons.
On Friday evening, June 15, .'.
Matthew was at home with his brother
and sister and his parents, Deen and
Lena Lancaster, in North Gilchrist
County. Matthew complained of A ride ho

minutes he was lethargic. A call was AGH.Thi

there the doctors did another CAT
scan and made two small holes in his
head. One hole was to drain the blood
from around his brain and the other
was to measure the pressure.
By Saturday morning the phone
lines around Gilchrist County were
spreading the tragic news that


Matthew was in serious trouble.
Family and friends of this native
Gilchrist County family were
bending their knees in prayer asking
for a miracle for Matthew. On Sunday

German students visit through Rotary Interact Program


By Anna Wild
Six students from Germany were
among a large group of visitors who
attended the Trenton Rotary Club
meeting on Monday, July 23.
The students from Germany were
joined by their partners in the Ro-
tary Interact Program, all of whom
live in Gilchrist County and neigh-
boring counties. The Rotary Interact
Program allows local youth to travel
abroad and live with another student
and their family for three weeks.
This year seven area students trav-
eled to various towns in Germany to
learn about the German culture and
history. Those students are: Melanie
Myer of Branford, Joshua Ash of Bell,
Anthony Ash of Bell, Matthew Allen
of Bell, Travis Kortessis of Branford,
Sarah Deutschlander of Trenton arid
Amelia Cline of Trenton.
Presently, the German students,
Sophia Sokeland of Harseweinkel,
Germany, Alexander Gobel of Lau-
bach, Germany, Lukas Kebschull of
Bielefeld, Germany, Felix Dauth of
Cologne, Germany, Leonie Pauly
of Overath, Germany, and Juliane
Hennig of Dierdorf, Germany are
now staying in Gilchrist County and
learning more about the American
way of life.
The American students who trav-
eled to Germany concluded that a lot

economy vehicles are popular.

were surprised by how flat Florida


is in comparison to Germany. The

DOE ranks Gilchrist

County School District

as tops in the state


Submitted
With shiny new school clothes
and a skip in their step, elemen-
tary, middle and high school stu-
dents will step off school buses
and pile out of cars at school cam-
puses throughout the county on
August 20.
The chest of every Gilchrist
County student and teacher may
stick out a bit with the knowledge
that they attend school and teach
in. Florida's top ranked school dis-
trict. For two consecutive years,
the Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict has been ranked number one
by the Florida Department of Edu-
cation (FLDOE) based on district
grade calculations.
FLDOE ranked its top ten school
districts for the 2006-2007 school
year as:
1. Gilchrist
2. Bievard
Okaloosa (tie)
4. Martin
5. St. Johns
6. Santa Rosa
7. Seminole
8. Sarasota
9. Charlotte
10. Nassau
Gilchrist schools were ranked
number one in Reading High
Standards with 77 percent of stu-
dents meeting High Standards
in Reading. Eighty-five percent
of Gilchrist County students met
High Standards in Math, leading
the school district to be named
number one in Math as well. Gil-
christ County tied with Okaloosa
County for a number one plac-
ing on the percentage of students
who made one year or more Read-
ing Gains. Both counties had 66
percent of students showing sig-
nificant Reading Gains. Nassau
County ranked number one in
High Standards Writing followed
by Okaloosa, Martin, Charlotte,
Broward, Alachua and Union
Counties, all of whom tied for a
second place rank. St. Johns, Palm
Beach and Hillsborough Counties
were ranked third and Gilchrist,


Brevard, Santa Rosa, Seminole,
Sarasota and Wakulla Counties tied
for a fourth place ranking in High
Standards Writing.' Both Gilchrist
and Okaloosa Counties tied for
second in Science High Standards
with 63 percent of students in both
districts achieving High Standards
in Science. Brevard County ranked
number one with 64 percent of stu-'
dents meeting High Standards in
Science. Gilchrist County students
who scored poorly on the 2005-
2006' FCAT showed a marked im-
provement on the 2006-2007 FCAT
test. Those 62 percent of students
ranked number two in the state in
Reading Gains and 74 percent of
students tied for a number seven
rank in Math Gains.Falling in be-
hind Brevard, St. Johns and Semi-
nole Counties, Gilchrist County tied
with Okaloosa, Martin and Santa
Rosa Counties for a number three
rank in Math Gains.
According to Riley Deen, assis-
tant principal of Trenton Elemen-
tary School, district grades are
calculated using all the same com-
ponents that are used when calculat-
ing school grades. FLDOE uses the
Florida Comprehensive Assessment
Test (FCAT) results to determine
the percentage of students perform-
ing at grade level in reading, math,
writing and science; the percentage
of students achieving a year's learn-
ing gain in reading and math and
the percentage of low performing
students (based on last year's FCAT
scores) who make a year's learning
.gain in reading and math.
Gilchrist County has been ranked
in the FLDOE's Top, 10 School Dis-
tricts for the past four years, moving
to the top spot after the 2005-2006
school year. The 2005-2006 school
year was the first year, since school
and district grades were calculated,
that any Florida school district had
100 percent of the district schools
scoring "A" grades. The Gilchrist
County School District repeated
this feat for the 2006-2007 school
year with all four district schools
again receiving an "A" grade.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion took action in their Monday,
July 16 regular meeting to approve a
proposed reduced millage rate based
at 8.75 mills. This is a reduction of
1.25 mills from the annual millage
rate that Gilchrist County Board of
County Commissioners has approved
for many years.
Before the board took action to ap-
prove the proposed 8.75 mills, the
five members discussed the reduction
of the millage rate to 8.2695 mills.
Two of the board members, Sharon
A. Langford and D. Ray Harrison,
Jr., pointed out that they were not in
favor of increasing the millage rate
above the 8.2695 mills. When the
chairman called for a vote Commis-
sioners Sharon Langford and Harri-
son voted no to the reduction of the
rate to 8.75 mills. These two com-
missioners were in favor of reducing
the millage rate, but they wanted it to'
be reduced even lower than the pro-
posed 8.75 mills motion.
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion is reviewing the entire budget
for Gilchrist County Board Depart-
ments as well as constitutional offi-
cers and organizations in the county
that provide services that are not-for-
profit that are funded by the county
annually. The adoption of the pro-
posed millage rate is for publication
purposes. This establishes a rate that
the Board of County Commissioners
cannot exceed in adopting their mill-
age rate for the 2007-08 budget.
The Board also in the July 16 meet-
ing gave the finance-department di-
rection, to have all departments revise
their proposed budgets to the dperat-
ing rate of the 2006-07 budget with a
2% estimated increase for personnel
salaries.


The actual estimated revenue in-
formation that the State of Florida
will be funding to Gilchrist County
for the 2007-08 fiscal year is being
received by the Gilchrist County
Clerk's Office. The Board is review-
ing identified capital outlay proposed
projects as well as numerous other
needs that are also being considered
for the next fiscal year.
Some of these items include the
funding of the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's proposed budget, which is re-
questing several bailiff positions and
other staff personnel. The Sheriff has
been asked to also reduce his budget
to the 2006-07 operating level, but the
proposed budgets total over $500,000
increase from last fiscal year.
The Board of County Commission-
ers is also reviewing what specific
needs must be repaired' or replaced
at the existing jail facility. The board
has requested Lee Mills of Mills En-
gineering and Surveying to review the
facility with mechanical contractors
to determine exactly what the needs
are and what it would cost to repair or
replace the most urgent needs.
The Gilchrist. County Commis-
sion is considering budgeting up to
$125,000 in revenues for payment
to Dixie County for incarcerating in-
mates in their facility in 2007-08.
The commission met again on
July 23 to hear budget requests for
organizations that provide service to
Gilchrist County. Each one of these
groups were told that due to the tax
reform legislation, the county is re-
ducing their expenses and asking for
their cooperation in keeping their
budget at the 2006-07 operating
level. Each of the organizations was
willing to accept the county's new
guidelines.

By Lauren Rudd

There were some interesting letters
in response to last week's column. If
S* you missed it, I wrote that a money
manager had bid $650,100 for the
privilege of having dinner with War-
ren Buffett. I clearly stated that the
money was designated for charity
and that I applauded such an act.
I also pointed out, tongue-in-cheek
I thought, that if the successful bidder
had hoped to glean any sort of invest-
ment insight to Buffett's investment

We received a disturbing email
concerning the indictment of Mi-
chael Vick for dogfighting. I urge
each and everyone who has a phone
or stamp to use it to call or write for
the suspension of Vick indefinitely.
This information came out of the 19
page indictment. "In or about March
of 2003, Peace (one of Vick's co-de-
fendants), after consulting with Vick
about the losing female pit bull's
condition, executed the losing dog by
wetting the dog down with water and
electrocuting the animal. In or about
April 2007, Peace, Phillips, and Vick
executed approximately eight dogs
that did not perform well in 'testing'
sessions-----by various methods, in-
cluding hanging, drowning and slam-
ming at least one dog's body to the
ground."
The status of football heroes is
rapidly deteriorating. It has gone
from alcohol, drug, and gambling ad-
dictions to physical abuse, and now
an all time ultimate low of animal
abuse.

thropy with Buffett. Fiithenni.rc I
was obviously too dense to see un-
adulterated idolatry at its finest.
Was I being cynical inadvertently?
After 40 years of dealing with Wall
Street, I admit to finding it some-
what difficult to believe in altruism.
Egos on the Street run rampant along
with an insatiable desire for personal
profit.
For example, a front page article
in the July 15, Sunday edition of
the Herald-Tribune opened with the-
statement, "The tributes to Sanford
I. Weill (former Citigroup CEO) line
the walls...that lead to his skyscraper
office...Each heralds his genius..." -
The July 16 issue of Barron's
wrote "...The bottom line on success
or failure on Wall Street is simply how
much money you make or lose."
Nonetheless, there was never any
intention on my part to belittle the
winning bidder. The purpose of the


Resting Upon Beds Of Ivory
(Kent Heaton)


It is hard to imagine reclining upon a bed inlaid with
ivory or a sofa adorned with ivory. Shopping at a top-end
furniture store will make the shopper aware of how much
money can be spent on. furniture. Few people would have
the money to spend on beds of ivory. This image was
vividly used by the prophet Amos during the days of
"Israel in the days of Uzziah king of Judah, and in the
days of Jeroboam the son of Joash king of Israel"
(Amos 1:1). Amos was a "herdsman from Tekoa"
(Amos 1:1) and a "gatherer of sycamore fruit" (Amos
7:14). However, he was the ideal prophet to preach to the
children of God in his age.
The people of God had grown rich and satisfied with
their material wealth. They lived in a golden age of
prosperity that gave rise to the decadence of living for
self. They enjoyed all the finer things of life and the cares
of the world, the deceitfulness of riches and the lust of
other things consumed their lives. Amos describes their
condition "0 you who put far away the evil day, and
bring near the seat of violence? Woe to those who lie
upon beds .of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their
couches, and eat lambs from the flock, and calves from
the midst of the stall; who sing idle songs to the sound
of the harp, and like David invent for themselves
instruments of music; who drink wine in bowls, and
anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not
grieved over the ruin of Joseph" (Amos 6:3-6).
The lives of God's people had grown busy with the
happiness of day to day living for the material gain of this
world's pleasure. They ate the best foods and enjoyed the
wine and dining of their worldly life. The aroma of their
perfumes and the sound of their, laughter masked the
reality of the ruin of the nation. Israel was on the fast
track to destruction. It would not be many years before a
foreign nation would plunder, destroy and take captive
those who "put far away the evil day."


When reading the prophets one cannot help but notice
the clear similarity of the days of Amos (and other
prophets) and the days we find ourselves in the United
States of America 2007. The greatest failure of mankind
is the inability to read and learn from history the
valuable lessons that foretell the future. We live in a day
where prosperity reigns. All we want or need is perfectly
packaged and available in mass quantity and only takes
a drive to Walmart to obtain. We drive shiny new cars,
wear clothes that cost more than a day's wages, live in
homes immaculate with every innovation of
convenience and have little concern for the ruin of the
nation.
What built our country and made it to be a great
nation was the belief in God. "In God We Trust" is
emblazoned upon our historical conscience but every
effort is being made to take away that trust. Laws are
now established that prohibit the recognition of God.
Discrimination of sexual preferences is prohibited,
marriage is destroyed by redefining its meaning,
prosperity becomes the god of the age and the people of
God are destroyed by "putting far away the evil day."
In the parable of the sower (Matthew 13; Mark 4), the
ground that received seed among the thorns became
unfruitful because of the "cares of this world, and the
deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things
entering in, choke the word" (Mark 4:19).
We are a people who sleep upon beds of ivory and
have little concern for lost souls. There, is too much
pleasure to enjoy, work to be done, goals to be attained
and life to live to have concern for our soul or the soul
of our neighbor. Satan has used the greatest tool in his
arsenal by filling our lives with material gain to gain
our souls. When we no longer live for the Lord we live
for ourselves. Read Amos 4 and take special note of
verse 12 & 13.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


John's mother aka MeMa was a great
cook and she made many memorable
meals. She loved to go to the river
camp at Suwannee. She told of go-
ing down to Suwannee from Cross
City when she was a young woman.
She said it would take all day long to
travel from Cross City to Suwannee
on the dirt road. Back in those days
her father Guy Thompson would al-
ways have a shovel, croaker sacks
and boards in the vehicle because
they were going to get stuck in that
sugar'sand.
I never asked her if they traveled
the Dixie Main Line Road or down
what is now know as Highway. 19.
But I do remember her accounts of
being stuck numerous times both go-
ing and coming.
Their camp at Suwannee in those
days was pretty primitive. They had
a tin three sided building with a saw-
dust floor. Their camp was located on
Big Bradford where they slept on old
green army cots and cooked on a por-
table three burner gas tabletop stove.
She also spoke of the many names
of the town of Suwannee. It was once
known as Demory Hill,'Salt Creek
and later as Suwannee.


treatise. Instead, I provide an abbre-
viated analysis that every reader can
duplicate and build upon. Moreover,
PetSmart recently hit the $33.
With regard to Lincoln, Nebraska,
Streetwise goes to the Lincoln Jour-
nal Star newspaper every week and
I have yet to hear a disparaging word
from the senior set.
In a more serious vein, a number
of readers asked for additional refer-
ences on Warren Buffett's methodol-
ogy. My favorite books on the subject
include "The Essays of Warren Buf-
fett: Lessons for Corporate America,"
selected and arranged by Lawrence
Cunningham. In a Liz Clayman inter-
view on CNBC, Buffett stated that of
all the books written about him, this
one is his favorite.


Mrs. Ayers was a wonderful cook
and a typical meal at camp consisted
of fried brim or fried mullet, grits,
hush puppies and the following cole
slaw recipe. If you were really lucky
Me-Ma had baked a pan of her home-
made brownies for dessert. I remem-
ber her making this slaw and going to
the refrigerator every 15 minutes or
so and giving. it a good shake. Man
was it good.


1 large cabbage, thinly shredded
1 large onion thinly sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup white vinegar
1/2 tablespoon dry mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
3/4 cup vegetable oil
Combine cabbage and onion, set
aside. Combine sugar, vinegar, salt,
mustard and celery seed and bring
to a boil, stirring often; add oil. Pour
over cabbage mixture; toss gently.
Cover and chill at least 2 hours be-
fore serving. Will keep several days
in the refrigerator. The hot dressing
makes a very crisp slaw delicious.


Also by Cunningham is "How to
think like Benjamin Graham and in-
vest like Warren Buffett." There is
also the often quoted work by Rob-
ert Hagstrom, Jr., titled "The Warren
Buffett Way."
My favorite computer program
with a Buffett stock screen is Stock
Investor Pro, available from the
American Association of Individual
Investors for $199 if you are an AAII
member ($29.95 at AAII.com). Next
week we will look at some compa-
nies that fit Buffett's criteria.

To: Editor of Gilchrist County Journal
In the July 19, 2007 issue of the Gilchrist County Journal
you reported that I voted against lowering the property taxes
for the taxpayers of Gilchrist County.
Please print this explanation for the taxpayers to understand
my vote.
The board had an opportunity to vote for around 8.26 mills
and instead voted to levy 8.75 mills.
My no vote was against 8.75 mills because I was and still am
in favor of an even lower millage of around 8.26 mills which
will lower taxes even more than the proposed 8.75 mills that
the majority voted for.
The past Board of Gilchrist County Commissioners have
never levied less than that 10 mills when they had the oppor-
tunity to do so. They just took the windfall of money it gave
them although they could have lowered the millage and given
some tax relief to the Taxpayers in the past.
The recent legislation has dictated a lowering of the millage
and the board voted 3 to 2 to exceed the roll back that had been
calculated.
I am very much in favor of lowering the millage for property
taxes, even more than the board proposed in the 8.75 mills.
If you or anyone wants further explanation of my vote on
this or any issue that comes before the board, please let me
know.
Sincerely,
D. Ray Harrison Jr.
Gilchrist County Commissioner, District 2

Letter to the Editor
I would like to take this opportunity to clarify my "no" vote
in the article titled "County Commission approves reduced
millage rate for property taxes," that appeared in the July
19th Gilchrist County Journal. I voted "no" on the proposed
millage rate for ad valorem property taxes which was voted
on at 8.75. I did this because I believe that the taxpayers of
Gilchrist County deserve the actual rollback rate which is set
by the State of Florida and at this time believed to be near
8.26. This is a more favorable rate and is the rate that I am
trying to capture. I believe that it is time and long overdue for
property taxes to be reduced. As the paper stated it will take a
unanimous vote at the September 6 meeting for it to be 8.75
which I voted against and will vote against again in Septem-
ber. The taxpayers of Gilchrist County deserve the lowest rate
and that is my intention to deliver. Therefore, if all calcula-
tions are correct on what we believe the rollback rate will be,
then the millage rate will be around 8.26 which is lower than
what is proposed at 8.75. I would hope.all taxpayers would
agree my "no" vote was the right thing to do to gain the op-
portunity of a lower tax rate.

Trenton welcomes
the Heart Gallery
of Mid-Florida
The Gilchrist County Chamber of
Commerce is very excited to host the
Heart Gallery of Mid-Florida from
August 10 through September 10,
2007;
What is a Heart Gallery? Pre-
sented by Children's Home Society
and the Professional Photographers
of North Central Florida, it is an in-
credible photo exhibit of children in
foster care whose hearts' desire is -to
be adopted by their forever family.
The goal is to raise overall awareness
of the foster care adoption 'program
and recruit prospective parents for
these children. "We are so excited
about the Heart Gallery," states Jen-
nifer Anchors, Executive Director
of Children's Home Society. "It is a
tremendous opportunity to increase
awareness of the children that are
hoping to find their forever families.
Every time I look at their faces I anim
moved by what they've been through
in their short lives and how much po-
ten~tial they have to overcome it with
the right opportunities."

Middle School students Blake Chapman and Natasha Dahlgren.

Local students learn about

health careers at LCCC


By Blake Chapman (R), Lake City
home school student & Natasha
Dahlgren (L), Bell Middle School
student
Twenty-five middle school students
from Lake City Community College's
(LCCC) five-county district areas
recently attended the second annual
Health Careers Summer Camp, a four
day program. This event, sponsored
by the Suwannee River Area Health
Education Center (AHEC) and Lake
City Community College, with the
assistance of Lake City Medical Cen-
ter, gave students the opportunity to
get hands-on experience working
with medical equipment and meeting
with healthcare professir.i.ds. Two
of the students, Blake Chapman and
Natasha Dahlgren, reported on their
week. Chapman is a Lake City home
schooled student entering the eighth
grade, while Dahlgren is a Bell Mid-
dle School student, also entering the


eighth grade. Dahlgren attended last
year's camp, while this was Chap-
man's first time attending.
Monday (Chapman): Today was
the first day of the Healthcare Sum-
mer Camp. I had a lot of fun. I went
to many different places in the col-
lege, but my favorite place was the
pharmacy lab. In the pharmacy lab
we made corn starch capsules, re-
packaged M&M's, and we learned
what pharmacists do. I also, liked
the simulation room. The simulation
room was where four robots were
used to train nurses when they were
taking courses at LCCC. The Robots
were breathing, talking to us, and had
different sounds they made. I learned
all the different medical careers. today
and had so much fun.
, (Dahlgren): The most interest-
ing thing we did today was the "sim
man." (human patient simulator) It

was fun to listen to all the special
sound effects.
Tuesday (Chapman): Today I had
a pretty good time. I learned a lot of
things. My favorite thing I learned
was what a PTA (physical therapist
assistant) does. I had so much fun
in there, we made our muscles re-
lax with this paraffin wax, and we
hooked up an electrical stimulation
machine to our muscles and it made
them jump. I also liked learning CPR;
I liked it because it really might come
in handy one day. I can't whit to go to
the hospital tomorrow.
Wednesday (Dahlgren): Today we
went to Lake City Medicali Center.
We were put into groups and then
assigned a leader. We learned about
the MRI machine and how to make
a bed. We also learned about being
a physical therapist and all the little
instruments they use. No one could'
forget about the fun time they had
learning about all the germnis on their
hands, and how hard it was to get rid
of them.
(Chapman): My favorite thing we
did was finding out how nurses do
things around the hospital. Each pa-
tient has an armband and that arm-
band has a barcode on it. So the nurse
has to scan the medicine then the
patient and the computer figures out
if the nurse is giving the patient the
right medicine, and if she's giving it
at the right time. We pretended to be
patients and nurses and scanned the
medicine.
Thursday (Chapman): Today is
the last day of the Health Careers
Summer Camp. I am gonifto miss
coming to the college every day. I
have had so much fun this past week.
Today we made erupting diet coke
volcanoes, we made stress balls (and
got corn starch everywhere), and we
had a relay race. My favorite thing
was the relay race. Our team won!
Our team was called the "blue health
group." Thank you to all the staff that
helped out at the camp and Abraham
Pallas, executive director of the acad-
emy of allied health programs.
(Dahglren): Today was the last day
of camp. We got to go take pictures
with all our other camp members, and
we also got to do many other activities
including making a stress ball, seeing
how high the diet coke shot up in the
air from the mentos, and which group
.could remember the most amount of
stuff on the tables. Yet the thing that
was the most interesting was the race.
The first race was between the blue
and yellow group, The goal was to
see which group could get dressed
the fastest. The hair net and shoe cov-
ers were first, and then we had to put
on our surgical jackets and have other
members of our team tie and button
.the backs of them, but last we had to
put on our gloves. After all that we
had to play the game Operation. The
teachers told us what to pull out and
if it buzzed we had to go to the end
of the line. Next we had to count out
how many M&M's using an elec-
tronic counter, but the hard thing was
you wanted to hurry yet if you went
too fast the machine would miscount
and you would be sent to the back of
the line. After that was done we had
to go and shave the balloons with
a razor. We got awards for our par-
ticipation throughout the week, and
then we had to go. We were all so sad
to ;go we had learned so much, and
made so many new friends, but the
most important thing we learned was
teamwork. We learned that alone you
may not be able to do something, but
together you can.

to four batters in the first inning,
giving up one run on an error and a
walk. Manadarin tried to pull a de-
layed steal with runners on first and
third and Smith made a perfect throw
to Bryant for a tag out at home to
end Mandarins threat. In the bottom
of the first SVL fought back. Smith
walked, Smith moved to second on
a wild pitch, Hunter Parrish moved
Smith to third with a sacrifice bunt,
and Bryant scored Smith with a field-
er's choice to short. At the end of one
the score was 1-1.
In the second Skawienski faced
three batters, striking out one and
giving up no runs. SVL did not score
in the second and the score remained
1-1. In the third Williams relieved
Skawienski, faced six batters, struck
out two, gave up two hits, but gave up
three runs, partly due to an error with
two outs that allowed two to score.
In the third SVL could not reach base
and the score was 4-1, Mandarin.
,In the fourth Williams continued to
pitch well, striking out one and giv-
ing up one hit. Bryant threw out
the only runner in the fourth when
Mandarin tried to steal second with
two outs. In the bottom of the fourth
Bryant walked and Williams hit his
fifth homer of the year, a long shot
to right center, making the score 4-3,
Mandarin.
In the fifth, Williams kept Manda-
rin at bay, striking out one while only
facing three batters. SVL came up
in the fifth and scored one. Wiggins
:singled, Smith doubled, Hunter Par-
rish walked, and Wiggins scored on a
wild pitch, making the score 4-4.
In the sixth Williams went to the
mound for'his fourth straight inning.
He got the first batter to pop up, but
the second batter reached first on a
ball that was .never touched by' the
infield but should have been caught.
The next batter doubled and the fol-
lowing batter homered, making the
:score 7-4. SVL made a come back
in the bottom of the sixth. Rowe
.singled, the next two batters made
,outs, Wiggins walked, Smith walked,
Hunter Parrish singled Rowe home
making the socre 7-5.
With two outs and the bases loaded
Mandarin got Bryant to fly out, end-
ing the game 7-5 and eliminating


SVL from the tournament. Mandarin
faced Ponte Vedra in the final with
Ponte Vedra winning 6-3. Ponte Ve-
dra moves on to play in the Southeast
Regional July 22 in Theordore, Ala-
bama. Mandarin was second, SVL
third, Cedar Hills fourth, Chiefland
fifth, and Live Oak sixth.
SVL ended the allstar season with
a record of 25-3, with losses coming
only to Wakulla and Mandarin(2).
Wakulla has not been beat all sum-
mer and won the 46/60 State Tourna-
ment in four games with a combined
score of 50-2. The Ponte Vedra team
has been to the Regionals for the past
three years, as 10 year olds, 11 year
olds, and now as 12 year olds. They
have super team speed, great hitting,
a deep pitching staff and solid de-
fense.
The SVL 12u team had the best fin-
ish in SVL's history. The team hit a
combined 38 or so homers, won the
Clay County Police Athletic League
Tournament in Middleburg, got third
in the Woodville Rag Shirt Tourna-
ment (Wakulla won), won the Dis-
trict 1 Small League Tournament in
Mayo, won the District I Tournament
in Jasper, and finally placed third at
State. The boys dedicated most of
their summer to baseball and their
teammates. They played every Sat-
urday during May and June and thru
July 7th. They stayed on the road
three weekends, ,once in Tallahassee
and twice in Live Oak. They worked
extremely, hard, normally practicing
three or four times per week, 3 or
more hours at a time, and then playing
three or four games on the weekends.
The boys had an awesome summer -
one that they can always be proud of.
The parents and coaches won't ever
forget all the miles we logged or the
memories the boys made and all the
growing up they did.
These kids are a pleasure to be
around, always getting compliments
from other coaches, parents, and
motel staff about their manners and
behavior. They are great baseball
players and more importantly good
young men. Gilchrist County has
alot to be proud of.

The only reason some people get
lost in thought is because it's unfa-
miliar territory.

Wednesday afternoon sewing group


Ms. Agnes, Ms. Kalist, and Ms. Bergenstock


Ms. Weaver


Wednesday afternoons are set aside
for a few of our residents who enjoy
sewing; something they loved to do
when they were in their own homes.
Now they have the opportunity to en-
joy making small projects for them-
selves or for their loved ones. Thanks
to generous people in our community
donating material, they've been able
to make qillows and pillows for their
grandchildren and adult children. It's
wonderful to see their smiles of ac-


complishment when their projects
are completed.
Conversation around the room
while sewing is entertaining in itself.
Normal girl talk, of course. No men
in this group yet! They are welcomed
anytime. Maybe the ladies can make
something for the guys sometime.
We'll see what the future brings for
them. Right now plans to make a

It's A Miracle...Matthew Lancaster Returns Home


Continued from Page 1
through nearly every church in the
tri-county area.
On Monday night, June 18,
Matthew slipped into serious
condition because the pressure in his
head had again risen to a dangerous
level and the doctors could not get
it lowered. A CT angiogram was
ordered and the doctors determined
that Matthew actually had a brain
aneurysm. Surgery was performed
the next day and Dr. Lewis removed
the aneurysm and found no other
damage to the brain. Matthew was
kept in a medically-induced coma for
days after the surgery to give his brain
a chance to heal. After two weeks on
a ventilator it was removed and then
later the feeding tube was removed.
The drugs that were keeping him in
a semi-coma state were reduced and
then taken away.
His mother said that every step of
the way the doctors and nurses were
amazed at how fast he was recovering.
The feeding tube was removed in
early July and within a few days he
began to eat and breathe on his own.


When he was just recovering his
voice a nurse asked Matthew what
he would like for his mother to bring
from home and he answered in a
whispery voice, "John Deere." Lena
said that she was overjoyed to return
to the hospital with a few of his
favorite toy tractors.
Matthew was transferred to
Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital
in Jacksonville on Friday, July 13
and after a week of therapy he was
released to come home on Saturday,
July 21. Matthew enjoyed the ride
home with his mother, Major and
Mariah. The limo ride was arranged
by his Grandpa James DeVore of
Archer. Once he arrived home his
first request was to visit his room
which is decorated entirely in John
Deere, Lenasaid that he just wanted
to make sure everything was as he
had left it.
On Tuesday morning his
grandmother, Darlene King, was
at the Lancaster home helping out.
Granny Dar and Lena have been
reading get well cards from as far
away as Australia to Matthew.

crowds and uncertainty over sudden turn to Walter Reed Army Medical
loud noises, McQuiston was truly Center where he will undergo addi-
happy to see his loved ones. tional reconstructive procedures over
In mid-August McQuiston will re- the next eight to 12 months.


"He has received cards from all
over, from Texas, New York and
across the seas. I read Matthew a
card from someone out of state and
Matthew said, 'tell me who that is?'
and I told him it's not someone we
know it's just someone who has been
praying for you, Matthew," Lena
said.
Lena's Aunt Frances Dale requested
prayer for him through the Internet
and the response was overwhelming.
All through Matthew's hospital
stay family and friends were kept
informed about his condition by his
uncle Trip Lancaster who sent out
daily emails. Family friends such as
Minister Danny Roberts who was on
hand the first night at AGH began
to pray and the praying has yet to
stop. Matthew has been prayed for in
churches, cathedrals and tabernacles
throughout the country. Numerous
prayer chains were set into motion on
his behalf. The family believes that
the prayers are what pulled Matthew
through. To say Matthew has come
a long way is an understatement.
The doctors expected that it would
take two to three months for him to
recover but he has already returned
home to his family.
Matthew's work at therapy is not
done, he will begin both occupational
and physical therapy later this week
as an outpatient at Shands.
Matthew's grandfather DeVore
said, "I'm real proud that through all
of this therapy and his recovery he
has not complained one time."
A benefit barbecue for Matthew
is planned for August 25 at the
Suwannee River Shriners' Club
in Fanning Springs. There is also
a trust fund for Matthew Lancaster

STOP on

Red Week
Submitted
The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice will join law enforcement and
traffic safety agencies across the
country to kick off National Stop on
Red Week, August 4-11. Local law
enforcement will draw attention to
the dangers of running red lights and
encourage motorists to stop on red.
In Gilchrist County, local law en-
forcement agencies will be focusing
specifically on the intersection of
Hwy. 129 and State Road 26 in Tren-
ton. According to the Department of
Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles,
in 2005, the last year for which sta-
tistics are available, there were 96
fatalities and 6300 injuries caused
by motorists running red lights.
Unfortunately, Florida ranks at the
top of the list of states for intersec-
tion crashes, and a third of those are
caused by running.red lights. That's
a sad statistic for the Sunshine State.
Law enforcement is doing its part
to enforce speeding and signal laws
at troubled intersections. Last year,
Florida law enforcement officers is-
sued over 300,000 tickets for running
red lights. Meanwhile, road engineers
are looking for ways to maximize de-
sign and operation at intersections to
improve ease of access and safety.
But the public must do their part as
well. Drivers throughout Gilchrist
County are encouraged to become
more mindful of their own behavior
at intersections.
