Flames erupt after car pulls into the path of oncoming tractor trailer


.By Carrie A. Mizell
The northbound lane of SR 47
was closed for five hours on Friday
after a car drove into the path of a
southbound. tractor trailer at the in-
tersection of CR 232. Both drivers
managed to escape the .'. wreckage just
before flames -n :lAfe-d the vehicles.
Leonard F. Pegram, 32, of Suwan-
nee County was tra'.eling south on
SR 47 in a 1999 Mack semi. It was
just after 3 p.m. when Pegram's ve-
hicle approached the intersection of


CR 232. Gilchrist County resident
Whitney Reed, 41, was traveling
west on CR 232 before stopping her
2006 Chrysler at the intersection of
SR 47. For an unbeknownst reason
Reed drove into the path of the on-
coming tractor trailer. After- impact
both vehicles traveled an estimated
140 feet, according a Fo'.ria Hoih-
way Patrol report, before coming to
rest in the northbound lane of SR 47.
The drivers were able to safely exit
their vehicles before the vehicles be-

Area quilter's work tells a rich story


By Cindy Jo Ayers
In the early morning you can find
Joan Gamble sitting on her shady


Is


porch watching the waters of the
Suwannee River slowly drift by. At
first glance you might think Joan is
just enjoying her morning coffee but
actually her mind is busy thinking of
her next quilt design. Joan may also
be wondering if her entries in the lo-
cal quilt show will win a ribbon or
not. She will not have long to wait
because the Springhouse Bi-Annual
Quilt Show will be held October 26-
27 in Trenton.
Her first quilt, a log cabin design,
which now covers a table on her
porch was made just seven short years
ago. She was taught to quilt by friend
and at the time next door neighbor
Stephanie Metts. After working for
years for Raytheon in an accounting
position that took her to all the states
in the union except Alaska, Joan
found herself retired to our area with
a little too much time. After her fast-
paced job she chose Florida because
she had married a Tampa Bay native


who wanted to return to the sunshine,
state. Joan is a native of a small town
in Washington state where her family
still lives. She freely admits Florida's
heat has been hard to adapt to.
For years she enjoyed many kinds
of crafting projects including mac-
ram6, book making, beading, and a
great deal of woodworking. As she
worked on her first quilt back in 2000
she knew she had found her creative
niche. Less than three years ago Joan
purchased her long arm quilting ma-
chine and since that time her ability
as a long arm quilter has grown great-
ly. In fact she won the local bi-annual
Springhouse Quilt Show in 2005 with
her quilt "Rings and Things." In the
past two years she has won many rib-
bons for her machine quilting. Most
recently she won the award for Best
Machine Quilting of the entire Jack-
sonville quilt show. She also picked

Springhouse Bi-Annual Quilt Show
Oct. 26-27


By Carrie A. Mizell
I A Trenton City Commissioner for-
mally submitted his resignation to
Florida Governor Charlie Crist on
Friday while announcing plans to
seek the office of mayor in the Dec.
4 city election.
In compliance with the resign to
run policy, Florida Statute 99.012(3),
Glen Thigpen submitted his resigna-
,tion as a city commissioner effective
Jan. 1,2008.
"I intend to seek the office of may-
or in the upcoming election," Thig-
pen stated in a letter addressed to
Crist, Kurt Browning, Department of
State, Division of Elections and Con-
nie Sanchez, Gilchrist County Su-
pervisor of Elections. "It has been an
honor to serve the City of Trenton in
this capacity and I hope to remain in
service to these fine citizens pending
the results of the Dec. 4, 2007 elec-
tion," Thigpen added.
Formal qualifying for the City of
Trenton's 2007 election will officially
start on Oct..29 and run through Nov.
2, according to Sanchez. A city com-
mission seat currently held by Arlene
Wilkes is up for election as well as
the mayor's seat, which is currently
held by Pete Randolph.
Randolph has served as mayor
for six years. In a phone interview
on Friday afternoon, Randolph said
he does plan to seek re-election so
he can continue working on several
projects within the city.
"I would like to see new water
lines put in and sewer lines run to the
old Schofield subdivision," Randolph
said. "Roads are not a top priority ex-
cept for 10th Street, it is a top prior-

Reed was transported by Gilchrist
County EMS to North Florida Re-
gional Medical Center where she was
treated before being released on Sat-

According to a Florida High% a\

Violation of Right of Way in this ac-

Hectic first

week for new

firefighters
By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County has hired two
EMT-firefighters to answer calls dur-
ing the day in the county.
Cliff Suber and Justin Schwab be-
gan working with Gilchrist County on
Tuesday, Oct. 9. Volunteer Assistant
Fire Chief Lee Schaltenbrand told the
Board of County Commissioners on
Monday that the two new firefighters
underwent orientation during their
first few days on the job.
On Thursday afternoon, Oct. 11,
Gilchrist County had a very serious
traffic accident on SR 26. The new
firefighters were the first to respond
to the scene. On Friday afternoon the
firefighters again responded to a seri-
ous traffic accident on SR 47 and CR
232.
"I am very impressed with these
guys, they are young -and energetic
and are doing a great job," Shalten-
brand told the board.
The firefighters used Spring Ridge
Department's brush truck to respond
last week. This week the county fire-
fighters will be using the North Gil-
christ Department's brush truck. The
Gilchrist County Fire Department is
workii g to provide the firefighters
with a truck to carry the equipment
they need in an emergency.
The two young men.are also an-
swering emergency medical service
calls while on duty.
"They had a baptism under fire last
week," County Administrator Ron-
nie McQueen said. "I've heard great
things about how professional and
courteous they are to the public."
Suber is a Gilchrist County na-
tive and Schwab is originally from
Gainesville.


County commissioners considering

recreation ordinance for straw ballot


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners reviewed Ordinance 07-20
on Monday, Oct. 15 to consider if the
proposed ordinance would be placed
on the Presidential Preference Prima-
ry ballot on Jan. 29, 2008.
The ordinance is being considered
as a non-binding referendum to create
a county recreation municipal taxing
unit and give the public an opportu-
nity to review and decide if they are
in favor of placing a 4 of a mill tax


on the property owners in the county
for the operation of recreation in the
Gilchrist County.
Before the ordinance can be placed
on the ballot, the municipalities will
also have to approve it for their resi-
dent's consideration.
Gilchrist County Supervisor of
Elections Connie D. Sanchez ex-
plained that the information for the
upcoming primary ballot would be
submitted to the Florida Depart-
ment of Elections for placement on


the special primary election ballot in
January 2008.
The straw ballot referendum will
give the Board of County Commis-
sioners an opportunity to see how
the public feels about the proposed
funding for the operation of recre-
ation in the county. Suwannee Valley
League directors have been commu-
nicating with Commissioner Tommy
Langford to bring a proposal to the

Gilchrist County Sheriff's Deputy Meghan Wooten is shown stand-
ing in front of her patrol car.

Wooten is the only girl on the road


By Carrie A. Mizell
Make-up is not a necessity for
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Deputy
Meghan Wooten, it is a splendid in-
dulgence.
Sometimes, she said, it is a struggle
to maintain her identity as a female in
a male dominated work environment,
but there is nothing the 2002 Bell
High School graduate would rather
do for a living.
"The only difference between me
and the guys I work with is the pony-
tail," Wooten said.
She is the daughter of' Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Sgt. Anita Moore.
Growing up, Wooten said her fam-
ily's police scanner was constantly
turned on. She even remembers sit-
ting at the dinner table and listening
to dispatchers' voices break through
the monotony of dinner by toning out
calls over the scanner
"My mom has been a driving
force," Wooten said.
At 19, Wooten started working at
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
as a 911 dispatcher. During that time
her mother was working patrol, now
she works in the jail.
"I think I was overly attentive, ex-
cited and proud all at the same time,"
Wooten said. "It made me see her in
a whole different light. She was not

In any profession, details make a
difference. Thoroughness is knowing
what factors will diminish the effec-
tiveness of someone's work or words,
if neglected.
Being thorough' helps a person to
plan their work, pay attention to de- a d .
tails, make a list so tasks won't be
forgotten, finish what is begun and.
clean up along the way.
As inferred, the character quality .' ".
for this month is thoroughness. This
particular attribute comes from the
root word thorough which has the
same origin as through. Both terms
relate to holes.
A thorough person sees a project
through to the end, leaving no "hole" Michael Toal
unfilled, no detail incomplete. On the trees.-
the other hand, thoroughness also From its greatest and most obvious
addresses the "whole" of a matter, aspects down to the tiniest details,
While some individuals can't see the thoroughness allows nothing to fall
forest for the trees and others can't through the cracks. The concept of
see the trees for the forest, thorough thoroughness ensures the quality, ef-
individuals see both the forest and


fectiveness and completion of a task.
Quality work is lasting work. Effec-
tive work is practical work. Complete
work is fulfilling work.
This month another youth has been
selected to be a Character Council
personality. Michael Toal, a native
of Gilchrist County, he is the eldest
son of James and Michelle Toal. He
is an 1 th-grade student in the Health
Academy of Bell High School. His
hobbies range from computer games,
sharing his knowledge through pre-
sentations, to caring for animals.
While his earnest work is being ac-
tive in his educational school sched-
ule, he is also employed at the Tren-
ton Animal Hospital, as well.
Michael defines thoroughness
as doing whatever you are capable
of doing and giving 110 percent of
yourself.
Michael explained that as a dual-
enrolled student with Lake City Com-
munity College, his ,.n..ledgc and
practice of -1i..'ulii -.. has given


him so many -opportunities to excel
in getting high grades in his courses.
He ascertains that being thorough in
his studies will allow him a college
scholarship. His goal for now is to
complete high school, get his Associ-
ate's degree from LCCC and then go
on to the University of Florida Veteri-
nary College.
His thoughts to encourage other
young people: Work each day at be-
ing thorough, for having thorough-
ness as part of one's everyday life
will increase opportunities for a
great career. Michael gives his fam-
ily credit for teaching him about be-
ing thorough and he has learned that
it's necessary to do one's best while

taking care of every detail, no mat-
ter what the cost in time, money or
energy.
With young people like Michael
Toal, living with thoroughness on
their mind, it surely gives us hope
for the future and demonstrates that
character determines success.


just my mom, but my co-worker."
When Wooten was 21 she left Gil-
christ County and went to work as a
911 dispatcher at the University Po-
lice Department while attending San-
ta Fe Community College Institute of
Public Safety.
"While Meghan was in school she
worked the night shift at UPD until 7
a.m. and would have to be at school
at 8 a.m.," said Moore. "She worked
so hard! At graduation she was given
two of the top four awards that were
given out."
After graduating from the academy
in July 2007, Wooten returned to the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office last
month.
"I've been very lucky as a young
deputy .to be able to work at the Gil-
christ County Sheriff's Office," Woo-
ten said. "Being back has been like a
homecoming. I've reunited with a lot
of people I went to school with."
Woolen said one of the perks of her
job is that every day is different be-
cause every scenario a deputy works
is different. One has to get involved
and be emotionally invested to be
successful, according to Wooten.
"To be happy to go to work every-
day is something to be envied," Woo-
ten said.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Cooler temperatures brought fall-
like weather to an otherwise swelter-
ing Gilchrist County over the week-
end. If you're like me, you anticipate
the opportunity to get outdoors and
revel in the crisp air. I always look
forward to sending the boys off to the
football game or the liiihinM woods
and gathering up a few friends. We
rise early on Saturdays to take to the
streets in an effort to find treasure at
area fall festivals. While the Williston
Peanut Festival and the High Springs
Fall Festival have passed, there are
still plenty of opportunities to enjoy
all that autumn has to offer.
The 38th annual Cedar Key Sea-
food Festival will be held this week-
end. The two-day event features arts
and crafts and boasts great local sea-
food in the city park. In addition to
the festival, the lighthouse on Sea-
horse Key will be open to the public.
Exploring the ancient lighthouse and
walking the undisturbed beach is a
singular experience, just don't take
your flip flops off to walk the beach
or you'll feel the pinch of sharp sand-
spurs. Also, be prepared for sand


gnats...the pesky insects serve as the
island's welcoming committee.
If seafood isn't your specialty,
step back in time at McIntosh's
1890s Festival on Saturday. McIn-
tosh residents dress in 1890s clothing
and stroll the live oak lined streets
which are filled with arts-and-crafits'
vendors and musicians. Arrive early,
the good crafts go quick at this fun
festival.
Finally, on Saturday, Nov. 3 the
23rd annual Down Home Days will
be held at the Community Church of
the Nazarene. Unlike years past when
the event was hosted by the Gilchrist
County Chamber of Commerce,
this year's Down Home Days will
be hosted by the church as a church
fundraiser. This year's event will be
held on the church's property, located
two miles west of Trenton on SR 26.
Other fall festivals include the
Micanopy Fall Harvest Festival on
Nov. 3-4, the Florida Seafood Festi-
val in Apalachicola on Nov. 2-3 and
the Florida Folk Festival in White
Springs on Nov. 9-11.

176 says, "They whom God hath. accepted in His
Beloved, c inFtaidh' called and sanctified by His Spirit,
can neither totally nor finally fall away from the state of

The consequences of believing that when a person
obeys i~ ...pcl of Christ, there is nothing the person can
do to ever lose their soul is profound. This means that

production to sales.
Be aware of any acrimonious
behavior in the executive suite.
Squabbling among management
is more prevalent in small caps as
founders are often forced to relinquish
control in order to raise capital and
quiet dissident shareholders.
An excellent example of a small
cap company on its way to becoming
a profitable large cap company is
Actuate Corp. Actuate manufacturers
computer software that enables
organizations to easily access the
data necessary to maximize their
revenue and profits by streamlining
the decision process. The company
has' over 4,000 customers worldwide
in a wide spectrum of industries.
Actuate is a true small cap with a
market capitalization that is roughly
$447 million. During the first half
of the year, the company earned 13
cents per share and I am projecting
that it will earn 8 cents this quarter
and 10 cents in the fourth quarter, for
a total of 31 cents per share in 2007
and 38 cents per share in 2008.
The company is expected to
announce its third quarter earnings
on October 29. A result equal to or
exceeding 8 cents should have a
positive' impact on the stock price,
which is currently at a 52 week high
of $7.38 per share. Anything less than
8 cents will likely have a negative
impact.
Intrinsic value should be an
integral part of any analysis and
Actuate is no exception. Using a
discounted earnings approach, with
an earnings growth rate of 20 percent
and a discount rate of 15 percent, the
intrinsic value is $11.49 per share.
The more conservative free. cash
flow to the firm approach yields an
intrinsic value of $9.68. My 12 month
price target for the shares is $9.75, for
a potential annual gain of 32 percent.

Well girls, it's finally open. I've
been hearing for the past month or
so that the The Ivy House of Alachua
would be opening soon. I spoke to
Waica Huggins one of the owners on
Tuesday and she gave me the low-
down, bless her heart.
For those of you who are not famil-
iar with the Ivy House Restaurant in
Williston, its one of the best restau-
rants in our area. I i that special place
where we girls like to go. Of course
from time to time we coax our men
folks into accompanying us there.
Mrs. Marjorie Hale along with
her daughter Evelyn Nussel, grand-
daughter Waica Huggins and long
,time friend Kraig Depue of Gaines-
ville have teamed up to bring this
new restaurant to Alachua.
The restaurant is located in old
downtown Alachua in the Williams-
LeRoy House. The two story Vic-
torian home was built in 1902. The
restaurant will serve food much like
the Ivy House in Williston with items
like Crispy Chicken and their won-
derful homemade mashed potatoes.
They have added a Coffee Bar in-
side the restaurant in Alachua that
will feature Green Mountain Roast-
ers Coffee. Wonderful homemade
cakes and desserts will be served in
the Coffee Bar. They will also feature
other breakfast items such as muffins


and four other great prizes. Be sure to
see one of the members. Both groups
are preparing and working hard for
many competitions as well. We look
forward to seeing how they do.
If you have any questions, please
contact us at (352)222-0309.

little beyond. Many volunteers are
needed for this cleanup. We need
people to work on land, people to
.work from canoes and kayaks, people
to make trash pickups in power boats,
and snorkelers to dive for trash.
You are welcome to bring your


and quiche.
Just in case you are fond of shop-
ping, the ladies have also opened

you plan to snorkel, then you will
need to plan on bringing mask, snor-

have them. Other than that, just bring
yourself wearing appropriate clothes
and footwear for the weather that day.
Wetsuits are not a bad idea for those
working in the water, especially if

It should be a good day on the river
and a good time in addition to provid-
ing a valuable service.

welcome to show up. Call (352)264-

you, and peace, be multiplied" (1 Peter 1:2). Why
would Peter need to warn the "elect" to be sober or
*igi:int about Satan if they could never fall? How can
he dc-: il be an "adversary" of those who are once saved
always saved? If the elect are eternally secure with no
possibility of falling from grace, what is Satan going to
"devour"? I
The consequences of this man-made doctrine is that it
matters- not how a person lives or acts salvation can
never be lost. Jesus said the names of God's people can
be blotted out of the book of life (Revelation 3:5). A
child of God can deny the faith (1 Timothy 5:8,12). The
Holy Spirit'said a child of God can depart from the faith
(1 Timothy 4:1). Faith can be overthrown (2 Timothy
2:18). Brethren are warned about "departing from the
living God" (Hebrews 10:29). We are saved by grace
but we can fall from grace: "You have been severed
from Christ, you who are seeking to be justified by law;
you have fallen from grace" (Galatians 5:4). A
Christian can be led away with the error of the wicked
(2 Peter 3:17).
The Titanic was praised as an unsinkable ship. Its
designers believed once floating always floating. It
sank! Once saved always saved sails on the same course
as the Titanic. "Keeping faith and a good conscience,
which some have rejected and suffered SHIPWRECK
in regard to their faith. Among these are Hymenaeus
and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan, so
that they will be taught not to blaspheme" (1 Timothy
1:19-20).

Gilchrist Historical []


On October llth the Mt. Nebo
Baptist Senior Saints took a field trip
in the church's bus to Noah's Park
and Planetarium located in the Mid-
Florida Baptist Assembly grounds
between Branford and Mayo off of
Hwy.27.
We toured the museum under the
direction of Pastor Tom Baird and
then went into the auditorium for a
talk about the fossils and how they
relate to information in the Bible.
This was followed by a question and
answer session. The 16 Seniors who
attended were very well informed


about the past history.
Following this, we gathered for a
"Brown Bag" lunch under huge live
oaks and next to a dried up lake that
used to be Lake Pickett. Anyway,
this was a great day of Christian Fel-
lowship and a good time was had by
all who attended.

4-Pets Sake
With cooler weather approaching
birds will find it more difficult to ob-
tain food, so here is a recipe for some
tasty meals for them. 2 cups crunchy
peanut butter, 2 cups cornmeal, 1 cup
sunflower seeds, 1 cup flour, fruit,
berries, peanuts, raisins, and nut bird-
seed to make 2 cups, 1/2 cup sugar, 1
cup lard or use bacon or hamburger
grease. Heat the grease in a skillet


and add peanut butter. Stir well until
melted and add the rest of the ingre-
dients until well blended. Put in small
plastic containers, store in freezer and
use as needed.
We were unable to bring more
items to the yard sale because of rain;
but all things considered we made
$263. Thank goodness Pat Baum had
the doors opened at 8 a.m. because we
couldn't get there until after 9 a.m.
Every so often 4-Pets Sake will set


up a yard sale at Bells and Whistles
storage. If you see Mr. Emenecker
there stop by and chat.
We are up to 475 surgeries and
453 rabies shots; looks like that goal
of 500 will be achieved. Enjoy this
beautiful weather before we start say-
ing it's too cold.

Branford stops Bell win
streak
Bell traveled to Branford last Fri-
day to try and improve their record to
6-1, and beat the Bucs for the second
time this year. It was a great night for
football, without a cloud in the sky I
am happy to report.
The Bucs won the opening coin
toss and deferred to the second half.
The Bulldogs offense sputtered and
elected to punt. The Bucs were fired
up, seeing as how it was their hoine-
coming game, and chugged their way
down the field. After some great de-
fensive stands, the Bulldogs' defense
finally gave way and allowed Brett
Suggs a touchdown. The kickoff gave
the Bulldogs the ball at the 26-yard
line. Trying to prove that he could
get fired up too, Lee Carlisle bolted
seventy-four yards for a touchdown
with' 4:24 left in the quarter. When
Branford received the ball, they took
a chance and went for it on fourth
down. Taking this choice personally,
Austin "Lumpy" Upshaw and Chris
Wilkerson crushed the Buccaneer
ball carrier and made Branford turn
it over on downs. Bell would get the
ball at the Bucs' 43-yard line.
As the second quarter started, the
Bulldogs were faced with a 4th and
2 deep in Buccaneer territory and
couldn't convert. But, neither offens-
es seemed to be in sync and Branford
punted away to the Bulldogs. This
however, would be a successful
drive for Bell. It would include a one
handed grab by Mitchell Cannon, a
4th down conversion, a 25-yard re-
ception by Paul Clark, and would
end with a 4-yard touchdown run by'
Justin Fowler. After the touchdown,
Bell and Branford would trade punts.
When Branford got the ball, costly
penalties and blown coverage would
cost them a Brett Suggs touchdown.
But, the snap for the kick was high,
and Branford couldn't take the lead.
The half would eventually end with
the score knotted at 13-13.
The second half would start off
slow, with the teams trading punts.
Branford wouldn't have a chance to

Mrs. Akins class
learns about fire safety
Last week Mrs. Akins' class learned several fire safety tips in case of
a fire. We learned how to stop, drop, and roll, and how important it is to
kmow what to do in case of a fire. We had lots of fun making firefighters,
Dalmatians, and getting a visit from the Alachua County Fire Dept. On
Friday we also took a walk to the Trenton Fire Station where we got to
spray the water, see the fire dog and learn more about firefighters. All the
iiefi'-hicLr did a gle ij job le.Lllill-j us fiic s'afeCt lip. s W i a fuin and e\cil-

punt a second time, as Mitchell Can-
non pounced on a Branford fumble.
The Branford offense would get back
on the field though, as a high long
snap on a punt attempt gave the Bucs
great field position. But, the momen-
tum would shift once again when Paul
Clark intercepted his 7th pass of the
year. The Bulldog offense couldn't
capitalize, and they gave the Bucs
back the ball. Something had to give,
and unfortunately, it was the Bulldog
defense. Brett Suggs would score his
third touchdown of the night to end
the third quarter with Branford lead-
ing 20-13.
The fourth quarter started as badly
as the third had ended, with yet an-
other high snap putting the Bulldog
defense in a hole. Branford had lots
of momentum by now and it showed
as they scored on a nifty reverse play.
When Bell got the ball back, they
made short work of the Branford de-
fense, driving down the 1-yard line
on a diving catch by Tommy Calla-
han. Justin Fowler would score his
second rushing touchdown of the
night one play later. Branford would
get great field position on the kickoff,
but the Bulldogs played great defense
and forced them to turri it over on
downs. But, Branford's defense ral-
lied and turned the same trick. John
Perry would score on a busted play
a few plays later, extending the Buc-
caneer lead to 33-21. A late turnover
would end the Bulldogs' chances of
winning.
The game was exciting to watch,
with the momentum shifting back
and forth. Ultimately, the big plays
given up by Bulldogs are what cost
them the game. Paul Clark had a
great game for the Bulldogs. He had
3 receptions for 44 yards, and added
6 tackles and an interception. Lee
Carlisle had 19 carries for 137 yards
and a touchdown. He now has 1,074
yards on the season. He also added
9 tackles.
Bell is off this week, but they will
play St. Joseph's Academy in St. Au-
gustine at 6:00 p.m.

FWC Officers Kevin Locee and Israel Istre talk to Bell High School
students on Friday.


Two alligators and three officers
from the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
stopped by Bell High School on Fri-
day to talk with students who are
eagerly considering future career
paths.
At the .request of his wife Jessica
Istre, a teacher at Bell High School,
FWC Officer Israel Istre volun-
teered to speak to students in grades
9 through 12 about what it takes to
get into an agency like FWC. Joined
by fellow officers Kevin Locee and
Zac Clark, Istre told students to work
hard in school, keep their grades up
and stay out of trouble.
"You must have 45 semester hours

get my job and you can't have any
criminal history," Istre said. "The de-
cisions that you are making now are
important for any job you might con-
sider down the road." .
An FWC officer for five years, Is-
tre considers himself very fortunate
to be able to work in the outdoors,
"At their age (high school) they all


love to hunt and fish and the outdoor
aspect of my job is amazing,". Istre
said. "I think it is the opportunity to'
work in the woods and the water that
appeals to them."

Mrs. Arndt Mr. Price
This week's Star High School Teacher is one of our newest teachers, but
she has jumped right in and taken on all the responsibilities of organiz-
ing the Student Government Association, as well as organizing the 2008
Ilomecoming. We are recognizing Ms. Kristin Arndt for all the hard work
she has put in to make our Homecoming a success. She has wasted no time
in getting SGA officers elected, putting together fund raisers, and getting
everyone excited about all the homecoming activities. We really appreciate
all that she is doing. Congratulations Mrs. Arndt!
Our Middle School Star Teacher is also a newer teacher at TM/HS. This
is his second year here. We chose Mr. Price as the Star Teacher because of
his commitment to his students. He is always willing to go the extra mile
for them, and he makes sure that each student is given the same opportu-
nity to learn. His dedication is really making a positive difference in ilie

Bell Band News
The Purple Powerhouse Marching
Band spent a very long Saturday at
the Echoes of Excellence Competi-
tion in Middleburg, Florida. The band
left at 7 a.m. and returned at 10 p.m.
The band had a great performance
and our hopes were high, but we
came away with only two trophies.
Congratulations to Cory Edwards
and Erica Dahlgren for receiving Su-
perior with Distinction as our Drum
Majors.
After a review of our taped perfor-
mance, we realized this competition
was not about music or marching,
but gimmicks and gimcrack. Colum-
bia High School and Santa Fe High
School also, had a rough day, but we
congratulate Sante Fe and Gaines-
ville High School from our District
for getting into the finals.
Kudos to our drumline members,
Travis Kortessis and J.D. Gray for
performing despite their pain and
discomfort. Travis broke his, wrist
and J.D, had a severe ankle sprain.
What troopers!
Thanks to all our chaperones and
parents who made the long trek to
support the band, Elaine Lagassee,
Dermot Burke, Gloria Crawford,
James Griffith, Joy Railey, Mary
Kortessiss, Stephanie Gray, Darlene
Andrews, Cinnamon McPearson, Mr.
Spoehr, and Mr., Hunter. Thank you to
David Aderhold for pulling the trailer
and to our Band Director's parents
for traveling from Vero Beach to sup-
port their daughter and us. We love
you!
If you wanted'to see your child per-
form, but couldn't make the trip you
are in luck. They will perform this
Saturday at the 'Florida Bandmas-
ter's MNPA a Columbia High School
in Lake Ci\t. Oui performance is at

14th District Masters
and Wardens meeting
William T. Carlton Lodge No. 46,
free and accepted masons, located
behind the former Tri-County Bank
building in Trenton, will be hosting
the '14th Masonic District Masters
and Wardens Association meeting
on Thursday, October 25th with a
meal at 7 p.m. and the meeting at 8
p.m. The meeting is open to all Mas-
ter Masons and worshipful Master
Jim Campbell has invited all Lodge
members to attend. There is a $7.00
donation for the meal.
The Masters and Wardens Asso-
ciation meetings are less formal than
a regular Lodge meeting and it is a
great time to interact with Masons
from all over the 14th District, which
includes Gilchrist, Levy and Alachua
counties. There is an award given
out each meeting called The Travel-
ing Gavel. It is awarded to the Lodge
that has the most number of members
present at that meeting. You don't
need to be a member of the Masters
and Wardens Association to partici-
pate, only that you are a Master Ma-
son. Wm. Campbell encourages all
Wm. T. Carlton Lodge members to
come so that the Lodge can win this
award for the month. Carlton Lodge
has never won it before, but it is
hoped there will be enough members
present to win the gavel. So come on
out and let's get the gavel!

The Trenton Police Department
represented by Chief Billy Smith took
the time last week to recognize Joe
Roberts. Mr. Roberts, a local resident,
has worked for the last 18 months on
the Citizens Patrol.
In fact Roberts is the first and only
member of the Citizens Patrol and
he will be greatly missed. He and
his wife have moved to Las Vegas to
be near their five children who live
there.
Roberts said, "It has helped me fill
in some time, it's been an opportunity
to meet and talk to local residents. I
like to make people feel comfortable
knowing that someone was looking
out for them." CHlief Smith said that
Roberts was a real asset to his force
and he hopes others might be inter-
ested in becoming involved with the
Citizens Patrol. For more information

Springhouse Quilters'
News
Springhouse Quilters give begin-
ning quilting classes each year from
January to March. Approximately
10 classes are provided. Each class'
is designed to teach a specific tech-
nique with the students making 6 to
8 blocks, all different. The blocks
are assembled and made into a small
quilt. The teaching process gives the
beginner quilter most of the funda-
mental techniques needed to make
almost any type quilt desired after
finishing the classes. New members
joining Springhouse Quilt Guild,
are given the opportunity to take the
classes. To be eligible to take the
classes, a prospective member is re-
quested to pay the very nominal an-
nual dues. The classes are designed
for members with the hope that after
the classes end, the new member will
remain a part of Springhouse. Any-
one interested in joining Springhouse
.should contact Mary Rawlins at 493-
7401, or Lois Scott at 463-2207.
The quilt show time is fast ap-
proaching. It is scheduled for Octo-
ber 26th and 27th with check in and
registration at the Trenton United
Methodist Church. The First Bap-
tist Church fellowship hall directly
across the street is also being used
to hang those quilts that will not fit
into, the Methodist Church. Both fel-
lowship halls should be full of quilts,
demonstrations, door prizes and oth-
er quilting related items. If you have
failed to see any announcement about
the show, Springhouse invites you to
come visit the show and see how cre-
ative today's quilters can be.

Celebrate National
Wildlife Refuge Week at
Cedar Keys' Lighthouse
Lower Suwannee .and Cedjr Ke;. s
National Wildlife Retuges invite you
to join in the celebration of National
Wildlife Refuge Week. The historic
Cedar Keys Light Station on Sea-
horse Key opens its doors FREE
to' the public Saturday and Sunday,
October 20 & 21, from 9:30 a.m. to
5:00 p.m.
The lighthouse and the ancient
sand dune it was built upon are nor-
mally closed to the public in order to
protect the bird rookery. This Open-
house is the perfect opportunity to
connect with your Florida heritage,
observe the tranquil beauty of the
refuge island, and enjoy the activities
provided by our partners and volun-
teers. The Florida Lighthouse Asso-
ciation will be providing tours of the
refuge's historic facility. Research-

Marine Lab will staff displays and
touch-tank exhibits for the enjoyment
of young and old alike.
You must arrange your own trans-
portation. A boat is needed to reach
this offshore island; visitors may use
their own boat or contact group tours
that leave from Cedar Key City Ma-
rina. Contact Cedar Key Chamber of
Commerce for more information at

G CABIN QUILTjRS


Betty Dillon has just finished quilitng this printed "Double Wedding Ring."
They are all beautiful and make the work much easier as they don't have to
be pieced.


Log Cabin Quilters met on Thurs-
day October 11th at the Levy Co.
Quilt Museum. Two Log Cabin Quilt
tops were put together and quilting
will start. We thank the members who
put quilts together, it takes time and
patience to get them ready to quilt.
B.J. brought in a beautiful "Dresden
Plate" we hope she puts in the fair.
We enjoyed having Rainy Miller,
her husband, sister and friend, come
up from Crystal River. Rainy plays
the piano and if I could play like she
does, I'd never do anything else. She
also writes a lot of her music and we
look forward to her being with us in
the coming weeks.
We had a big load of clothes, dish-
es, books and what-have-you and we


the busy port of Cedar Key. Later,
it was' used as a detention center for
captives during the Second Semi-
nole War, then as a prison during the
Civil War. The light was decommis-
sioned in 1915. Seahorse Key and its
lighthouse; became part of the Cedar
Keys National Wildlife Refuge in
1939. Beginning in 1952, the light-
house was. leased to the University of
Florida as a marine laboratory for use
in research and education, and still
serves that purpose today.
So bring your camera and step onto
one of Cedar Keys National Wildlife
Refuge premier holdings. Shots from
the tower in the morning are spectac-
ular, railroad vine covers the beach
and wading birds seem to pose for the
camera. You don't want to miss this
opportunity.
S Both the Cedar Keys and Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge
are a part of the U.S. Fish and Wild-


are getting ready for our porch sale.
Through the year we have had so
much brought in and we never use it
all, so we need to get it cleaned out
and make room for more.
Nick Turner and six boys were out
Tuesday and we had a great day. We
got a strawberry patch planted, more
onions and broccoli planted, too. The
yard got mowed, rugs got washed and
so much more. Thank Yqu Lancaster.
Today was chicken day with po-
tatoes, cheese and macaroni, slaw,
peas, carrots cabbage, pea salad,
macaroni salad,; coconut and choco-
late pie, fruit cake and so much more.
15 members were present.

Ms. Frances Corinne
Moore
Ms. Frances Corinne Moore,
slipped peacefully into God's loving
embrace on October 9, 2007, while
holding her beloved cousin Barby's
hand and listening to gospel music
softly playing. She was 64 years of
age.
Corinne was a long-time resident
of Sunshiners Group Home in Wil-
liston, where she was a cherished
friend to the othdr residents and staff.
Prior to her retirement due to illness,

learned life skills, engaged in pro-
ductive work therapy, and socialized
with her many friends.

sister Carmen McBrayer, two nieces
and a nephew, her adoring cousin and
pal Barbara Jean Powell, many other
loving cousins, and her dear friend
and support coordinator Ann Sliney,
of People Systems.
Corinne was blessed at birth with
a genuinely pure spirit, and was both
innocent and wise beyond measure.
She loved music and Southern-fried
cooking, and enchanted all she met
with her good humor and unique per-
spective of the world around her. Her
last weeks of life,. were contentedly
spent at Haven Hospice Care Center
in Chiefland where the entire staff be-
stowed dare, comfort, and love upon
her. For this kindness her family is
profoundly grateful.
She faithfully attended Archer
Church of the Nazarene and the
church's "Angels" Sunday school

life will take place on Sunday, Octo-

What started out as a hobby has
now turned into a cottage industry for
Joan. Her fairly new business is call
Sew Artfully Quilted and on any giv-
en month she machine quilts 20 or so
quilt tops made by clients. Her busi-
ness has tripled in the last year and


she hopes to add additional clients
in the future. Joan said, "The more
quilts I quilt the better I become and
I could not be the professional quilter
I am today without my first clients
who trusted me .with their quilt tops."
Joan only makes three to four quilts
in a year and her favorite part of the
process is designing the quilts, pick-
ing out fabric and machine quilting
the finished quilt tops. She said many

Area quilter's work tells a rich story


The quilt pattern shown above is Moon Over the Mountains.


.of her original machine quilting de-
signs have evolved from doodling
with pencil on paper.
Like most quilters Joan likes to
visit quilt stores where she is inspired
by new fabric lines and the artistic
designs of others. She loves not only
the cottons preferred by most quilters
but flannels as well as wool fabrics.
Her favorite three quilt stores in-
clude Olde Green Cupboard in Jack-
sonville, Anna Lena's Quilt Shop in
Washington state and of course the
Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe in
Trenton.
The Trenton quilt store is owned
incidentally by Stephanie Metts who
first introduced her to quilting. She
also likes to take an occasional quilt
class which she said stretches her
creativity and makes her work out-
side the box. Joan attends as many.
long arm quilting shows as possible
and often takes classes at these shows
with the intent of keeping up with the
newest innovations. She said that of
all the quilts she has made traditional


quilts are still her favorite.
This year she machine quilted a
quilt for a client that took 89 hours
to complete, to date this is the most
time she has spent on any one quilt.
That quilt went on to win a machine
quilting award.
Anyone interested in viewing part
of Joan Gamble's quilts collection
may do so at this time. Her quilts
will be on display for the next few
weeks at The Suwannee Valley Quilt
Shoppe in Trenton. The shop is lo-
cated on North Main Street and is
open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Tuesday
through Saturday. You can also view
over one hundred locally made quilts
at the Springhouse Quilt Show which
'is open to the public and will be held
October 26 and 27. The quilt show
will be held at the United Methodist
Church and across the street at First
Baptist Church in Trenton.

and contemporary long arm quilt-
ing can be contacted at Sew Artfully
