Trenton City Commission

approves rate increases to

balance proposed budget


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission held
a budget meeting Thursday, Aug. 23
to discuss the possibility of balanc-
ing their 2007-08 proposed budget.
With four of the fie commissioners
in attendance, the City Manager pre-
sented the council with an oer ie%%
of the situation.
Jered Ottenwess told the council
this will be the last opportunity for
a workshop meeting before the pre-
liminary budget appro% al hearing is
held on Sept. 10. At the last budget'
workshop, the board came to the fol-
low ing conclusions: approved a pro-
posed millage rate of 3 mills. salary
increases maxed at 2 percent. and cut
Suwannee Valley Leagues contribu-
-tioc to $5,000.
The City Manager further explained
that based on these conclusions, the"
Cit3 still has a deficit in the Gener-
al Fund of approximatelN $55.000.
However, after the City Manager-
further adjusted and fine tuned some
of the personnel cost 'numbers b\ us-
ing the most detailed estimates and
eliminating the part-time custodian
and offsetting that by restoring the 4
percent pa\ increase in addition to a 1
percent overtime adjustment. the pro-
posed budget current\ has a deficit
of an estimated $44.(00. Ortteness
said.
"Because the proposed ad valorem
rate is no% capped at 3.00 mills and
water and sewer rates %%ere recently\
increased to the Florida Rural Water
proposed levels, there are only two
ways to achieve a balanced general
fund budget: Increase garbage ser-
vice fees, or cut personnel costs," Ot-
ten%%ess said
Commissioner Glen Thigpen ex-
plained that the City Manager's
memo identifies a deficit of $44,000
in the 2007-08 budget. With the ad
valorem millage set at 3.0 mills for
the upcoming year. he recommended
that the expenses in the budget are
:bare minimum figures. And that the
commission should- not look to de-
crease these figures.
"We should however, strive to
work within these figures. The au-
ditot has expressed time and time
again the need for the city to begin
to develop reserves We cannot build
reserves if we continue to just "get
by" year in and year out. Obo iousl\.
for the upcoming year we are in a
crunch and getting by seems to be the
only solution. Our departments are
in much need of new equipment and
replacement equipment. These needs
have not developed over the past year
and Will not be met in the next year or

even the following year. I challenge
each of us to look far ahead when
making financial decisions for our
city," Thigpen said.
As chairman of the finance com-
mittee, Thigpen further explained,,
"There are multiple ways to gain the
revenue needed for the upcoming
year. The city manager's proposal is
as good as any. Increasing garbage
service rates seems to be the most
logical solution with the least impact
on our customers. During a recent
meeting the commission decided
to change the water and sewer rate
structure to update them according
to the Florida Rural Water Associa-
tion's recommendation. In that same'
meeting it was discussed to increase
a percentage ab-,,e this recomimen-
dation to account for ne'. equipment
needs."
"Before the increase fot the water
service, we %were piacticall griming
the \water awai at cost." Malor Pete'
Randolph said .1
Thigpen recommended increasing
'the water. se%\er and garbage service
rates b\ 6 percent to raise the re enue
to balance the budget. ,
"Even tluough '..e just had a rate
increase. I think this is the best way
to go in meeting the budget deficit,"
Thigpen explained. .
W"\hen I first came to Trenton the
'Cit\ did not ha'e an ad alorem tIa
to pay. The Citm of Trenton also col-'
lects a 10 percent utility3 ta\ on all
uniht. ser'. ices used bi the residences
and businesses. What do we offer our
citizens and businesses for what they
pa\'? \e are letting our roads go to
dirt, but continuing to increase rev-
enues to the law\ enforcement budget
of the police department,"" Coinis-
sioner Rand) Rutter said.
Commissioner Rutter tried to get
the commission to consider patching
the potholes in roads and begin to put
revenues in the v'ater and sewer bud-
get to upgrade the City's water and
sel er infrastructure.
Commissioner Rutter asked the
board, "Is the City of Trenton going,
to repair the dilapidated loads'.""
The City of Trenton's proposed
budget for 2007-08 General Fund
is $815, 835, of which 28 percent is
designated to go to law enforcement
"Upon t.tking this office I s ot e
to protect and preserve the general
welfare of the people of Trenton. I
am not in favor of making cuts to the
police department to improve roads,"
Mas or. Randolph explained.
The Citi Manager explained to the
commission that the additional sav-
ings to the General Fund budget by
cutting the personnel raise from 4
percent on salary with an additional 1
percent over time increase to 2% per-
cent across the board would save an
estimated $12,000 to $14,000.
Thigpen made a motion to increase
the water, sewer and garbage rates
by 6 percent and Commissioner Tim
Kinsey gave a second to the motion.
The board voted 3-1 in favor of the
motion with Commissioner Rutter
voting no on the motion.'
City Attorney David M. Lang
asked the commission when the last
time the City of Trenton did a cost
study to determine what fire service
costs the City of Trenton to provide
this service to both the municipality
as well as in the unincorporated areas
of the county.
"You have a cost for each time the
fire truck is cranked to provide ser-
vice. It is not good management to
provide service and lose money do-

U.S. Senator Bill Nelson speaks to area students


By Carrie A. Mizell
During a visit to, Trenton High
School last Wednesday, United States
Senator Bill Nelson told juniors and
seniors from both Trenton High
School and Bell High 'School that
education is a lifelong process that
reaches far be ond school \ears.
Though Sen Nelson told students
he was in town to speak to them
about his career as an astronaut and
his tenure as a senator, he captit% ated
the audience of teenagers early on.
and actually taught them a lesson in
science, specifically on space ntat el.
While growing up in Melbourne,
Fla., Sen. Nelson said that he and all
the other kids in his public school
knew the astronauts by name and
looked at each one as a hero. At the
time, spade travel was capturing na-
tional attention.
Little did Nelson know that in Jan-
uarN 1986 he would spend six days
orbiting Earth as a mission special-
i.t abuuid thc space shuItle Colum :
bia. The experience gave him a new
perspectie on the importance of the
nation's space exploration program.
"This week a 'ery special thing
happened. the space shuttle landed
safely] after it had tile damage," Nel-
son said "'This was a special space
fight for me because when I "%as

80's, I trained with Christa McAu-'
liffe and her backup teacherin space

two lessons from the space shuttle as
part of the NASA Teacher in Space
project. After the Challenger explod-
ed, the backup -"Teacher in Space"
Barbara Morga.n "as sent home,
according to Nelson. 'Txel'e years
later NASA created a new .position
for teachers to become full\ trained
astronauts. NASA officials called
Morgan and asked her to train as an
astronaut to become the first "educa-
tor astronaut" launched into orbit.
While onboard the space shuttle
Endeavour last week, Morean was
able to teach three lessons .from
space to schoolchildren on Earth.
The first lesson %tas taught to a group
of schoolchildren who were Lathered

son said that he called Morgan to sa\,
"The hopes of thousands of school
children are going with \.ou into
space .
Nelson showed Gilchrist Count\
students a small model of the space
shuttle and explained to them all the
steps astronauts go through during
liftoff and reentry.
WXhile personally traveling in
space. Nelson said that he learned
firsthand the effects liftoff and orbit-
trng the Earth has on the human body.
While t1 ing on the 2-4th shuttle fight.
Nelson said he conducted 12 medical
e\periments on the human heart to


determine the effects of space travel
on the heart.
"I walked halfway around the
earth"' Nelson said while explaining
to students that during an experiment
he %walked on a treadmill as the shut-
tle "\as orbiting.
Nelson tried to explain to students
the vastness of space, finally saying
that the size is unimaginable.
"ltrimatel.. "hat is going to keep
our country competit\e in a global
market place is intellectual achie e-
ment." Nelson said. "Education is a


lifelong process.
Before leading Trenton High
School. Nelson gate the students an
opportunity. to ask questions. The
plethora of quesnrons ranged from his
stand on abortion to ha ing a female
president One student asked Nelson
if he believed ga', marriage should be
legal
Nelson responded. "I believe that
people have a right to lihe theii lives
.is they see lit. but the institution of
marriage is unique, reserved for a
man and a \. onman."


Fall enrollment soars at LCCC Gilchrist Center


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 2007 graduate of Bell High,
School, Amanda Jacobs is one of
106 area college students who began
the fall semester last week by, taking
classes at Lake City Communitni, Col-
lege's Gilchrist Center
-This is my first semester and I'm
taking t wo classes at the Gilchrist
Center and two online classes," Ja-
cobs said. "Being able to take classes
closer to home is one of the reasons I.
decided to go to Lake' City Commu-
nity College."
Having opened in January 2007,
the Gilchrist Center boasts t wo com-
pressed video classrooms, one in-
structional classroom and a computer
lab v. ith four laptop computers .. ired
with DSL, according to Jan Tucker,
interim office assistant while Rachel
Rogers, senior office assistant is out
for health reasons.
"We're growing and expanding as
we find out the community's needs,"
Tucker said. "The computer lab will
soon be expanding. An order has
been placed for four additional table-
top computers, headphones for each
computer and another printer."
The computer lab is open to the
community, but Lake City Commu-
nity College students have priority
followed by GED students, accord-
ing to Tucker. The computer lab is'
open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m. to
4:30 p.m.
"I come to the Center sometimes
just to work in the computer lab on
my online classes because we only
have dial-up at home. These comput-
ers are much faster,', Jacobs said.
Students taking classes at the Gil-
christ Center are able to receive live
instruction from teachers leading
class on the Lake City campus or any
area campus at the Gilchrist Center.
But that's not all; students can also
take part in virtual academic advis-
ing. According to Toni Briley, aca-
demic/career advisor, students can set
up an appointment with one of four

the Gilchrist Center at the scheduled
time and talk face to.face with an ad-
visor about academic scheduling or
career advisement.
"This service has only beer. a ail-
able to students for five to six months.
but already many students hae been
assisted," Briley said. "Sure you can
advise a student over the phone, but
face to face helps the students feel
more comfortable. We can go over
paperwork together and then students
can fax the paperwork over to the
campus and that takes care of deliv-
ery."
Jim Morris, executive director of
library and community services at
Lake City Community College pre-


sides o'er the three -
centers in the col-
lege's fie district
area Those centers
are located in Di\e.
Baker and Gilchrist
Counties. Since the -
Gilchnst Center
opened in JanuarN it
has quickly caught
up with the other two centers, accord-
ing to Morris.
"The center's rapid growth is a re-
flection, I believe, of how much the
Gilchrist County community wanted
us," Morris said. "The center is' al-
ready becoming comparable with the
Dixie County center."
According to Morris, a request has


been made for LCCC to offer a non-
credit computer class which would
teach people a variety of Microsoft
programs at the Gilchrist Center.
Adult education classes are also be-
ing taught at the Gilchrist Center on
Wednesday from 6 to 9 p.m. and
several new software programs have

meeting draws
By Carrie A. Mizell
Nutrition, showmanship and gen-
eral rules for the Suwannee River
Youth Livestock Show and Sale were
discussed Saturday morning at the
first of a series of mandatory meet-
ings being held for all exhibitors who
plan to enter an animal in the 2008
fair.
According to Mark Bishop, fair
president, between 300 and 350 ex-
hibitors attended Saturday's meet-
ing which was held at the Gilchrist
County FFA Rodeo Arena. ,,
"This is the first year that we have
held mandatory meetings in each of
the three counties. Hopefully this will
eliminate everyone having to drive to
the fairgrounds," Bishop said.
Break-out sessions held through-
out the morning were led by Danny
Smith, a district Purina representa-
tive, who spoke on 'animal nutrition,
followed by animal show represen-
tatives who detailed proper show-
manship techniques. Show repre-
sentatives were, Earl Jones, Jr.-Beef,


350 youth
Daryl Smith-Swine, Holly Houghton-
Horses, Susan Owens-Goats, Thelma
Thompson- Rabbits and Chickens,
and Chris DeCubellis-Dairy Cows.
Bishop explained that general rules
for the fair were explained to the ex-
hibitors before they were asked to
sign a sheet saying they understood
each rule and pledged to abide by the
rules. Each exhibitor was given an
entry form, record book and a book
outlining fair rules.
The biggest change from the 2007
fair is the change in scheduling, ac-
cording to Bishop who explained that
the fair dates are spread from March
6-8 to March 28-April 2 primarily
because of FCAT testing.
"The FCAT forced the dates back
this year, but hopefully that will get
back to normal dates next year,"
Bishop said.
Also, new in 2007 will be weight
restrictions on feeder cows. Begin-
ning this year, feeder cows can't
weigh over 500 pounds at the first
weigh-in. In the past, the weight limit

ourselves before the season starts,"
Coach Tiffany Liles said. "Thanks to
all the parents and JV/Middle School

Character Leadership Trait


Candidate for CFE Co-Op Dist. 6
Hi, my name is Alan Mikell. I _.
am a life-long resident of Gilchrist "h
County. I am very interested in and
wish to serve as your Central Flor-
ida Electric Cooperation Trustee in .
District 6. I feel that there is a need
to grow and expand in this ever
changing world we live in today.
We need to look towards the future
and start preparing for the many
changes that are coming our way. I
believe that we need to take steps
now to guard against high energy .
costs that are now facing us and
will only get worse in the future. '
We also need to help protect our lo-
cal jobs and insure that our employ-
ees are able to do their job in a safe .'
and secure environment., .


of the Month
By Geneva Cornwell
The Noah Webster "American Dic-
tionary of the English Language"
(circa 1828) defines an "idealist" as
one who attempts to "assist others in
capturing a mental picture, through
thinking, reasoning and listening, of
what something is all about, then, in
turn, acting upon that mental impres-
sion to create a better life for them-
selves and others." Idealism is part
of the materialistic ways in which the
human mind perceives to think and
understand. Growing in idealism
creates a certain way of thinking, and
acting upon that thinking, that pro-
motes good for all people concerned.
As we continue our study on lead-
ership perspectives regarding the
Character First! Initiative, the fol-
lowing definition is taken from the
"Character Determines Success"
pocket guide. "Idealist" is someone
who has unimpeachable integrity, is
open to correction, is willing to iden-
tify problems as they arise, and who
speaks the truth boldly."
Our highlighted personality for
this month is none other than the
,Bell High School Guidance Coun-
selor, Mrs. Dana Collins. As a Home
Economics graduate from Florida
State she is also certified in ESE and
Math (Grades 5-9). Collins holds a
Master's Degree in Guidance, and
has worked for the Gilchrist County
'School System since her arrival in
1990. She and her husband, Chet, are
parents to seven children and they at-
tend Priscilla Baptist Church. Mrs.
Collins believes that being an "ideal-
ist" is important in her life because,
as she related "The only way people
can improve themselves is to realize
that no One is perfect, and each day we
have to recognize that we make mis-
takes and (we become better people)
by learning from those mistakes."
Recently, ,as Dana began putting
together some 400+ Bell senior high
school student schedules, she real-
ized how much she wanted to help
the young people in their last years

of high school. Her desire is to help
them grow and expand themselves.
With that thought in mind, she con-
tacted each parent. Her goal was to
help them understand that there is so
much "free" money out there to assist
their children in getting a good edu-
cation beyond high school. This exu-
berant lady sincerely desires to assist
our local young men and women to
work toward a bright future, so once
their college education is behind
them they will have a better impact
-on our community.
Collins related that her "Daddy"
was not given the opportunity to go
to or complete high school, but he
taught her. "three" specific things,
which have become a part of her entire
life: "Don't ever ask someone else to
do what you would not do; and there
are two things which no one can take
away from you: a good education and
your good name (reputation)." Dana
also believes that when a mistake is
made, we are given the next moment
to make amends and improve. As she
counsels with young people she fol-
lows her own philosophy in that we
always need to understand two keys:
"Be honest and always forgive."
So, here we have another citizen of
our marvelous county who is striving
toward the mark of illustrating in her
life that being a person of character
brings success.

THURSDAY. AUGUST 30, 2007


John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The City of Trenton is continuing
to conduct business as usual as they
held a budget meeting Thursday,
August 23. This meeting was sched-
uled to discuss how the municipality
would balance their budget; as they
were told by the City Manager the
City has a $55,000 deficit to balance
their proposed 2007-08 budget.
Commissioner. Glen Thigpen, the
chairman of the City Finance Com-
mittee, made a recommendation to
his fellow commissioners to again
increase the fees that the City of
Trenton charges for Water, Sewer
and Garbage service. Commissioner
Thigpen chose this route instead of re-
ducing services; which would require
the commission to closely review
the amount of revenue that Trenton
spends for the services provided to
the businesses and residents.
The City of Trenton receives tax
dollars that are being allocated to
some of the departments; for exam-
ple, the Police Department, $232,650
annually with 2 fulltime officers, 1
part-time at 35 hours a week and a
secretary position that is split with
the Police Department and the Wa-
ter and Sewer Department. I won't
go any further with this point, but I
am thankful for the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office and the service they
provide to the businesses in the City


of Trenton.
On a more realistic note, the Tren-
ton Commission from time to time
mentions how they would like to set
aside funds that are undesignated that
could be identified to General Fund
reserve. The council had the oppor-
tunity to identify just these types of
funds in this meeting, but further dis-
cussed giving their employees a 4%o
salary increase plus a 1% overtime
raise. The City of Trenton will con-
tinue in the deficit financial condition
they are in because they are not will-
ing to make the decisions that need
to be made to improve their financial
standing.
I do want to commend Commis-
sioner Randy Rutter for speaking out
on what he feels is right and is in the
best interest for the City of Trenton. I
can understand though, if I had three
fellow commissioners against me, I
too would feel like I am fighting a
losing battle.
Commissioner Thigpen mentioned
Thursday night that the City of Tren-
ton has worn-out equipment and ve-
'hicles but are unable to propose funds
to upgrade their equipment needs.
Further discussion revealed, in the
future the Commission will be able to
find the needed revenue as they will'
again probably consider raising the
millage rate to purchase something
else they feel is needed.

If you do not want to run a screen
yourself, the August 10 issue of Busi-
ness Week describes its annual effort
in this direction. A total of 55 com-
panies were selected that could theo-
retically meet Buffett's investment
criteria. In 2006, the stocks selected
chalked up a gain of 18.2 percent,
as compared to 13.6 percent for the
S&P 500 index.
As an experiment, I 'ran the Buf-
fett screen in the Stock Investor Pro
program that is sold by the American
Association of Individual Investors
(AAII). It came up with 37 compa-
nies, at least two of which have com-
pelling stories.
First up is Coach. If you are not fa-
miliar with the name, Coach designs
and manufactures high-end leather
goods and accessories, mostly. for
women. The company recently an-
nounced net sales of $2.61 billion
for its 2007 fiscal year, a 28 percent
gain over the $2.04 billion recorded
in 2006. Net income increased 37
percent for the year to $637 million,
while earnings per share increased
41 percent to $1.69. The company's-
share price is up 41 percent in the
past 12 months, trading at about the
$43 level.
The intrinsic value of Coach on a
discounted earnings basis, using an
earnings growth rate of 15 percent
and a discount rate of 11 percent,
is $66.46. The more conservative
discounted cash flow to the firm ap-
proach yields an intrinsic value of
$53.50. My earnings estimate for this
fiscal year is $2.10 per share with a
12 month target price on the shares
of $54, for an annual gain of 24 per-
cent.
Columbia Sportswear's Chair-
woman, Gertrude Boyle, transformed
her father's floundering company
into one of the world's largest manu-
facturers of ski and outerwear cloth-
ing. The Boyles (Gertrude; son Tim,
president and CEO;. and daughter
Sarah Bany) own about 65 percent of
the company.
The company recently reported re-
cord second quarter sales of $218.6
million, as compared to $211.6 mil-
lion for the same period a year ago.
Earnings for the quarter also set a re-
cord, coming in at 27 cents per share
on 36.5 million shares, as compared.
to 13 cents per share a year ago on 37
million shares. The shares recently,


The Spiritual Leadership Of The Home
(Kent Heaton)


The home'was the last and highest creation of God
when from the dust of the ground Adam was formed and
then from his side came, woman. In the garden of Eden
Jehovah placed the man and,woman together as a union
of the majesty of Heaven's wisdom, eternity's grace and
man's utmost blessing of the Creator upon His. creation.
Through the vicious hatred of God Satan 'marred this
union in the temptation of woman and downfall of man.
As a result of sin, God said to the woman "your desire
shall be for your husband, and he shall rule over you"
(Genesis 3:16). Paul. later explained: "For Adam was
formed first, then Eve; and Adam was not deceived, but
the woman was deceived and became a transgressor" (1
Timothy 2:13-14).
The headship of man is outlined in 1 Corinthians 11:3
- "But I want you to understand that the head of every
man is Christ, the head of a woman is her husband, and
the head of Christ is God." Paul admonishes the
husbands to "love your wives, as Christ loved the church
and gave himself up for her ... For the husband is the
head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his
body, and is himself its Savior ... husbands should love
their wives as their own bodies" (Ephesians 5:25,23, 28).
In the home, the fathers take the role of spiritual
leadership with the children as he will "not provoke your
children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline
and instruction of the Lord" (Ephesians 6:4).
As a husband, the man takes the role of leadership for
his wife; as a father, the man teaches the spiritual needs
of the children. The leadership of the home is given by
God to the man. Upon his shoulders is borne the
command of God to lead the home. The world of our day
has rejected God's plan and homes are filled with despair,
disarray and disharmony because men have abdicated
their role as the spiritual leaders of the home. The man
has become either a brute beast or a coward to fulfill the


role' given to him by God.
The spiritual relationship of the home is established
when the husband treats the wife in the same way Christ
treats the church. Christ's life was forfeited for the
church; the man forfeits his life to help his mate become
the woman she needs to be before God. He loves his
wife with' the love Christ has for the church. He
exercises his headship as lovingly and compassionately
as Christ does the church. The husband nourishes his
wife with tender care ("and is not bitter against her" -
Colossians 3:19) and cherishes his, wife. 'He supplies
every care the wife needs. This headship is given to man
and when he fails to follow this pattern, he. rejects the
will of God.
The spiritual relationship of the home is established
when the man takes his role as a father to guide the lives
of the children to the heavenly Father. This role was not
given to the woman but the man. Isaiah the prophet said,
"The father makes known to the children thy
faithfulness" (Isaiah 38:19). From the lips of the fathers
come the instructions of righteousness and truth.
Children should see the father becoming the spiritual
man of the home to guide the family to the throne of
God.
Many homes do not have the leadership given by the
Lord to the man. The church is being attacked through
the abandonment of men who through selfish desires fail
to care for their wives and children. These truths are as
ancient as time itself. When the home is filled with
rebe!ion, the world will follow suit. The home founded
upon the pattern given by God will bring peace and
happiness. The man must take his role of headship
seriously, as God has given him direction. There will not
be a second chance to be the kind of husband or father a
man should be. Today is the day for the man to take his
role as the spiritual leader of his family.

Is A Mother's Work Really Done ?

its in a day.
Is a, mother's, work really done?

id a good night's sleep. And rested
r the new day.,

king up those dirty clothes, where
ey missed the clothes' basket. And

here are always three or more
ads.
Is a mother's work really done?
king up all the dirty .cups and
asses, that are all through the house,.
here they forgot to take them back
the kitchen.


Is a mothers work really ever done?
After she gets the washing started,
she has the breakfast dishes to do.
Is a mothers work really ever done?
The floors have to be swept and the
carpet vacuumed. The furniture that
needs to be dusted.
Is a mothers work really ever done?
There is baking goodies for the fam-
ily when they return home from their
hard day.
Is a mothers work really ever done?
. Then she has to see that everyone, has
had their baths. And is ready for bed.
So that they get a good nights sleep.
Is a mother's work really done?
And if there are babies still at home
to care for, and pick-up after.
Is a mothers work really ever done?
Don't forget the errands she has to do
for the family each day.
Is a mothers work really, really
done?

I nearly wrecked my car last week
while driving down from Callahan. It
wasn't a deer barreling out of the ditch
and onto the roadway that caused me
to swerve to the left; instead it was a
crisp red leaf hanging on a tree along
Hwy. 121. I'll brake for some fall fo-
liage...I think that's the Doris Beau-
champ in me. I sat there thinking that
little leaf had to be confused since it's
still about 700 degrees outside.
When I got home I was again re-
minded of fall when I opened a letter
from my oldest friend Tiffany (Oz-
ment) Wood. Tiffany and her hus-
band Cody along with their baby Ella
Grace moved to Livingston, Mon-
tana earlier this summer to serve the,
Lord.
In the letter Tiffany writes that it's
already 40 degrees at night in Mon-
tana and that she has been out shoot-
ing and is now looking forward to the
opening of hunting season (for elk,
buffalo,, antelope and bear) which
will begin on Sept. .1. Now I don't
know how many of you know her,
but Tiffany is maybe a 100 pounds
dripping wet with a plethora of piano.

a rifle. My immediate thought was,
is Tiffany strong enough to carry a
loaded gun through the woods? Evi-
dently we have underestimated Tiffa-
nry's outdoor skills over the years...
Further down in the letter she ex-
plained that Cody has --hunter" men
(her words, not mine) anxious to
take him out hunting, which will be
a great* opportunity for ministry. Tif-
fany said that men in Montana love
the outdoors, but would never go
to church. She also said that a great
number of women in Montana hunt
as well. Even little Ella Grace (who
recently celebrated her first birthday)
can say "deer."
Please pray for the Wood family as
they minister through hunting this fall
and please pray for Tiffany's safety!
I'm anxiously awaiting a picture of
her first big Montana kill so that we
may publish it in the newspaper. I
know her daddy must be so proud!
On a side note, my mom and her
best friend, Beth Davis left Trenton
last Friday in rhinestone cowboy
boots bound for a dude ranch in Mon-
tana. I'm hoping no one will give
these two fearless females a rifle and
point them toward a buffalo! Hope-
fully, the girls will stick to quilting.

I Remembers When...


Mr. Rufus Beauchamp proudly displays the Outstanding Cat-
I tleman Award. The distinguished honor was presented to R.R.
Beauchamp and Son in September 1976 at the Gilchrist County I
Cattlemen's Annual Meeting, held at Hart Springs. Mr. Beau-
Schamp's son, Ralph Beauchamp was a veterinarian working in m
Gainesville at the time. The Gilchrist County Journal article that
ran in September 1976 stated that Mr. Rufus got into the cattle
business on his wedding day, July 2, 1925. Apparently his fa-
ther-in-law Mannie Clyatt gave Mr. Rufus and his wife, Mrs.
I Elizabeth, a cow and a heifer calf as a wedding gift. Those were
the days of open range in Florida and cattle were branded with a
brand that each cattle owner registered at the courthouse.

Angela Barr fights for her life


Tri-County Nursing Home is
showing their support to one of
their own. Angela Barr is fighting
a second battle with cancer. Al-
most two years ago, Angela was di-
agnosed with breast cancer. After
a painful course of chemotherapy
and radiation, she was pronounced
cancer free. During this time, An-
gela was always very brave and
didn't show the pain and worry she
was having. Now, Angie has been
told that she has liver cancer and
the prognosis is guarded.
During the entire battle, she has
worked at her employment as a
CNA and missed only a minimal
amount of work. No one would
ever know what was going on
in her life because she remains a
caring, comforting person for her
residents and their families.
Angela is a single mother with
two adorable children. Hermie
McClendon is 14 and Ganigelo Mc-
Clendon is 11. Angela is dedicated
to her family, and that is why she
continues this difficult battle.
Tri-County Nursing Home is
raising money to help offset some


Angela Barr


of the expenses that Angie has ac-
quired. Bake sales, raffles, and an
upcoming yard sale will help reach
that goal. Any contributions for
this worthy cause can be sent to
Tri-County Nursing Home for de-
posit in the "Angie Fund." We ask
the community and former resi-
dents of Angie's to come to her aid
and return the kindness that she has
shown to others.

Bell's Bradley Teckenbrock, #54, attempts to block a Branfora player
while teammate, Justin Fowler, #12, runs the ball.


By Joel Elliott
At 7:30 Friday night, the Bell High
School Bulldogs played the Branford
Buccaneers in the Preseason Classic.
Although the win didn't go on the
Bulldog's overall record, it was par-
ticularly sweet because it marked the
first time that Coach Roy Harden has
beaten his former school.
The Bulldogs won the opening
coin toss, and senior captains Shawn
Yingling and Austin Upshaw elected
to defer to the second half. The ball
was kicked and the Branford offense
marched down the field and scored
on a 1-yard run by Branford senior
running back Brett Suggs. When
Branford lined up to kick the extra
point, senior defensive tackle Bran-
don Beach stuck up a paw and made,
sure the score stayed at 6-0.
If anyone thought that the Bull-
dogs were discouraged by Branford's
seemingly easy romp to the end zone,
they were mistaken. Junior return
man/running back/ linebacker Lee
Carlisle took the kickoff 65 yards
to the Branford 15-yard line. Then,
a 4-yard run by 8th grader Jeremy
Zimmerman set up a perfectly placed
11-yard touchdown.pass from junior
quarterback Justin Fowler to senior
receiver Paul Clark. The extra point
was no good, and the score at that


time was 6-6. Although the pass: was
beautiful, much of the credit has to be
given to the offensive line led by se-
niors Brandon Beach and John Elliott,
who gave Fowler more than enough
time to scope out Clark. Similar
to the first drive, Branford took the
kickoff and again were threatening to
score before junior defensive tackle
Cory Irvin, senior defensive tackle
Brandon Beach, and senior middle
linebacker Mitchell Bell put their
considerably large feet down. They
forced Branford to turn the ball over
on downs when Mitchell Bell flat-
tened a diving Tim Clark. The Bull-
dogs took over at their own five-yard
line, and were given a bit of breath-
ing room when the Bulldog snap
count drew Branford offside. But,
the offense fizzled and they elected to
punt on fourth down. The punt was
"shanked" and Branford took over on
the 11-yard line. Branford took over
from there, and Branford junior quar-
terback Bradley Bullock found John,
Perry for a touchdown: Again, the.
Bulldogs were determined to keep
the score as it was, and another per-
son came up big. On the two- point
conversion, it appeared that Bullock
had found a receiver in the back of
the end zone. But in a flash, Lee
Carlisle had laid a nasty lick on the


surprised Branford receiver, and the
ball fell to the ground. The score was
12-6 more than midway through the
first half.
After the kickoff, the Bulldogs of-
fense started out smoking. Fowler
hit on two passes, and senior running
back Shawn Yingling had a nifty
bit of running to take the ball past
midfield. Sadly, this is as far as the
offense would go. The Buccaneers
promptly drove the other direction,
but, as what was becoming a pat-
tern the defense stopped the Bucs on,
downs. The Bulldogs took over on
downs with 2:07 left. Lee Carlisle
weaved, shoved, and banged his way
through Buccaneer defenders for a
40-yard gain out to midfield. The
Bulldogs would turn over the ball on
downs with three straight shots at the
end zone, and Branford would take
over on downs. With 16.3 seconds
left in the half, normal thought would
say that one would take a knee to run
out the clock. However, the Bulldog
secondary wasn't resting on' this as-
sumption. When Branford attempted
to pass, junior Ryan Fischer jumped
on a route and intercepted the ball
with 8.9 seconds left. Coach Harden
would then run out the clock With
Carlisle.
While the football team was pre-"
paring to put on a show in the sec-
ond half, the Bell Purple Powerhouse.
Marching Band was already doing
so. The show consisted of some 80s,
90s, and music from today. Usu-
ally, marching bands aren't ready to
march in the first game, but first year
band director Sarah Gover had the
band ready and raring to go. We'll
be looking forward to more shows by
the band wherever the Bulldogs play.
The Bulldogs would receive the
kickoff, and Lee Carlisle would take
the ball to the 20-yard' line. From
there,, Shawn Yingliag would take
the ball 30 yards. ,The Bulldog of-
fense seemed fit to strike, and then
a remarkable fingertip interception
by a Buccaneer defender ended the
drive. The momentum would swing
the other direction when two plays
later, Paul Clark would break on a
Bradley Bullock pass and return'it to
the 29-yard line. Then, it appeared
that Fowler and senior receiver C.J
Harris would hook up on a pass over
the middle for a first down or more..
But a Buccaneer defender shoved
Harris from behind and the Bull-
dogs were awarded 15 yards. But
Harris couldn't be denied the ball
ias he received a Justin Fowler pass
in the comer of the end zone, just
barely sticking his left foot in before
he went out of bounds with the ball.
Ryan Fischer then booted the extra
point. This would give the Bulldogs
the lead, 13-12. The Buccaneers
started the drive with a pass breakup
by Clark. Then, Branford was given
a very questionable call, with the
side judge calling pass interference
on Clark. Then, CJ Harris started
"cracking some helmets," Whenever
a Bucs defender would catch the ball,
the senior safety would be there to
greet them with a bone rattling hit.
The Bucs were forced to punt despite
the penalty. Unfortunately, the Bull-
dog, offense stalled, receiving penal-

ties and loss of yardage plays. The
Bulldogs'were backed into their own
end zone when they punted. That,
of course, gave the Buccaneers great
field position. John Perry would then
score on a run from 20 yards out.
The two-point conversion was no
good and the score was 18-13. The
kickoff was returned by Harris to the
27-yard line. Here, Fowler would
begin a running performance that
would break the backs of the Bucs
defense and set up a touchdown. On
first down, Fowler would shake off
one defender and run 17 yards for the
first down. Coach Harden would run
the same-play to the opposite side and
Fowler would run for a decent gain
of six yards. Fowler would get the
first down on the very next play, a
nine-yard run. The Bulldog coach-
ing staff wasn't foolish enough to run
the same play four times in a row,
and the Bulldogs had small gains on
the next two plays. Everyone at the
game knew who the ball was going
to on third and 11. Fowler couldn't
be stopped as the long legged quar-
terback ran for 29 yards, taking the
ball to the Branford five-yard line.
On first down, Fowler would roll
out to his left, look, and fire a pass to
the back of the end zone, looking for
Clark. At this point, everyone at the
field would hold his or her collective
breaths. As Clark juggled the ball,
ppt both feet down in the end zone,
and finally getting full possession,
the Bulldog crowd exploded. The
catch was truly remarkable, and it
gave the Bulldogs a 19-18 lead. The
two point conversion was no good,
and the Dawgs held a point lead.
But, there was still around three
minutes of football left, and the Bull-
dogs. had a job to do. For the defen-
sive line, there was .io question of the
Bucs getting anything. The "d-line"
stuffed the Bucs on three straight
plays. This is what the game came.
down to. Fourth and 10, 2:07 left in
the game. Bullock dropped back to
pass, paused for a .second, and was
then crushed by the tandem of Bubba
Joiner and Cory Irvin. The Bucs were
forced to turn the ball over on downs.
This essentially ended the game for
the Bucs, as long as the Bulldogs
took care of the football. They did
this, and Fowler would run out the
clock, preserving the win.
This was an extremely entertaining
game to watch, with many momen-
tum changes and jaw-dropping plays.
The Bulldogs didn't blow the Bucs
out, but proved that they could grind
out a win, even when they could make
mistakes. Next Friday, the Bulldogs
will be playing county rival Trenton,
the "rival game" of the year for both
teams. Kickoff is set for 7:30 at the
Trenton High School Football Field.


The Dixie County Bears faced a de-
termined Trenton Tiger team Friday
night in the annual Kick-Off Classic
for both teams. The two teams moved
the football on each other in the first
half as Dixie County scored first in,
the opening quarter. The Bears held
a 7-0 lead until the Tigers tied the
game in the second quarter. In the
closing seconds of the first half, the
Bears scored a touchdown and extra
point to take a 14-7 lead at intermis-
sion. The crowd remained during the
sprinkle of rain at the end of the sec-
ond quarter to watch this high school
football action.
The second half proved to be Dixie
County's edge as the Bears scored 21
points to seal the victory.,
This game was' a good test for the
Tigers as they found the tough Bears
to be not only bigger in class size but
stronger than the average. opponent
Trenton will face in 2007.
The Tigers will host the Bell Bull-
dogs Friday night with kickoff set
for 7:30 p.m. This game is always a


I


classic as the two teams discard the
records and play for pride and com-
munity spirit. Last year the Tigers'
edged the Bulldogs in overtime by a
single point. The county, champion-
ship game Friday night-is expected to
be another rockem; sockem; winner
take all contest.

Students to meet with
national leaders in
Washington, D.C.
This fall, outstanding high school
students from across the United
States will take part in a unique lead-
ership development conference in our
nation's capitol. During the 6-day
program, the National Young Lead-
ers Conference (NYLC) will provide
scholars with the opportunity to inter-
act with a variety of personnel who
operate within the three branches of
government, the news media, and the
international community.
"NYLC prepares students to serve
our country well, whether that means
as elected officials in our nation's
capitol, as active members within
communities around the world or as
intelligent, creative, and. responsible
members of the work force," said
Mike Lasday, executive director of
the Congressional Youth Leader-
ship Council (CYLC), the organiza-
tion that sponsors the Conference.
"Through a series of. simulations,
we place these young leaders in the
proverbial driver's seat on a variety
of issues facing our country today.
Their determination, as shown within
the Conference, is a good indicator of
the types of leaders we will see in the
future."
Past highlights of this program
have included welcoming remarks

Congress, made from the floor of the
House of Representatives--a privi-
lege that is seldom afforded to other
groups. Students have also had op-
portunities to interact with prominent
members of the Washington press
corps at the National Press Club, in
addition to meeting, with senators
and representatives or appointed staff
members to discuss important issues
facing the nation.
To complement the schedule of
special meetings and briefings, stu-
dents will participate in a number of
leadership skill-building activities
and simulations. In one role-play
activity titled If I Were President,
students act as the presidents and

A caterpillar teaches

Area kids learn through hands-on teaching


By Carrie A. Mizell
Scooping up prickly caterpillars
and placing them in sand pails is a
special treat for small children en-
rolled at Kathy's All Things Pre-
School and Learning Center in Bell.
Laughter abounds as the children
chase each other with the caterpil-
lars and show their horrified teachers
what they are playing with. The chil-
dren are not aware that their hands-on
play is actually a lesson in science.
Under the direction of owner
Kathy Spears, the center utilizes a
creative curriculum each day.
"My sister Karen and I built this
center around the way we were
raised. We used to play in the dirt
and we wanted that safe environ-
ment where children could learn and
not even realize their working here,"
Spears said. "Everything is hands-on
or we don't do it."
After much prayer, Spears opened
the center in 1996 after she lost her
job with Energizer.
"I don't know to this day exactly
how I got into this. The only experi-
ence I had was raising my own two
boys and working in the church nurs-
ery," Spears said.
Unsure of what th'e future held,
Spears began spending time at a
friend's daycare in Branford and
soon realized that Bell could really
use a day care and learning center.
God began opening doors and Spears
was able to complete her associate's
degree in Early Childhood Develop-

ing it," Lang explained.
Lavaughn Sessions addressed the board to ask them if the ad valorem tax
that was proposed had taken care of the past debt the City of Trenton had
from previous budget years. He was not given an answer by the board or the
City Manager. Mr. Sessions challenged the Commission to bite the bullet and
reduce the budget and establish a reserve to take care of the lean and tough
times.


we could to buy this piece of prop-
erty," Spears said. "We held a barn
raising and roasted a pig on the hill.
My church family helped us set the
trusses in place and we dedicated the
site."
In August 1997 Spears opened the
doors to the center with seven chil-
dren enrolled, by December she had
27 children. Over the years the cen-
Ster has continued to flourish. Today,
there are 75 children, ages 2 to 11
enrolled in the center and there is a
lengthy wait list.
"I've had people call me from the
hospital once their baby is born to
put the child's name on. the wait list,"

Spears said,
Despite the growth coming to Gil-
christ County, Spears said that she re-
ally doesn't want to see the center get
any bigger. Keeping up with 12 expe-
rienced employees, all of whom are
CDA certified (including the cook),
is as much work as she plans to do.
Two years ago when Spears' facil-
ity was bursting at the seams with 47
children inside, she said it took a lot
of hassling by friends for her to add
on to the building.
"I just don't want it to be so big
that the kids become just numbers
to us," Spears said. "As it is we all
know each other."
Each morning 42 children, ages 2,
3, and 4 arrive at the center around
7 a.m. Following breakfast the chil-
dren go by a schedule throughout the
day which includes music and move-
ment, reading, math, outside science
lessons, computer time, art and small
group activities. The center has one
class of 2-year-olds, one class of 3-
year-olds and two classes of children

participating in the Voluntary Pre-
Kindergarten (VPK) Program, ac-
cording to Spears.
When school lets out for the day
35 children are bused to the center
where they work on homework for
30 minutes, play outside for an houi
and then work ona theme lesson such
as different cultures with their teach-
ers.
Utilizing several creative curricu-
lums, the children are taught lessons
geared to different ideas. In August.
the children studied a unit entitled
"All About Me" which encouraged
students to focus on themselves
through lessons on my family, my

"In the future we plan to continue

Morris said that over the years he

Through this coalition, the center has

That message is reflected by the
