Trenton High School multi-class reunion draws 138 ablmni


By Carrie A. Mizell
One hundred and thirty-eight Tren-
ton High School alumni filled the or-
ange and black adorned elementary
school cafeteria during a multi-class
reunion held on Saturday.
The former graduates, who repre-
sented the classes of 1936 through
1980, were welcomed to the Class


By Carrie A. Mizell
Questions over water damage from
past hurricanes, stability of the build-
ing and possible mold contamina-
tion, led county officials to move the
Emergency .Services station from a
deteriorating building on Main Street
to a new mobile home on US 129.
The Gilchrist County Board of
County Commissioners decided to
move the paramedics to a new facil-
ity during the 2006-2007 fiscal year.
Since 1992 the county had been uti-
lizing the former Trenton Medical
Center building on Main Street as an
EMS station.
"The county decided that for what
it would take to rebuild or repair the
building they would be better off to
move completely," said Ron Mills,
emergency management chief.
The mobile home, which is set up
just north of Trenton, will serve as


of 1957-hosted event by Masters of
Ceremonies Prieston Jones of Tren-
ton and Billy Colson of Tallahassee.
Warm greetings and fond memories
were exchanged during a social hour
that preceded a hearty lunch catered
by Red Wagon Wheel Cookhouse.
The menu included pork, chicken,
sausage, wild rice, potato casserole,


a temporary station until the count)
builds a new EMS station in Trenton,
according to Linda Walker, director
of EMS.
Gilchrist County paramedics Dan-'
ny Elkins and Jezelle Kotait are cur-
rently stationed at the new facility.
"This is a newer and nicer facility
than the one we were in," Kotait said
of the temporary facility. "We have'
new beds, couches and other general
upgrades."
Mills explained that the county's
focus is on the new public safety
complex planned for Bell. Once that
project gets underway, "the. Trenton
EMS station will be built in conjunc-
tion with, the public safety complex.
"Hopefully they [the paramedics]
will only be in the mobile home for
six months," said Carlos Perez, di-
rector of the Department of Public
Safety.


beans, creamed corn, fruit salad, gar-
den salad, rolls and desserts.
"I saw lots of people who I
haven't seen in years," Kay Lazarus
Putchaven said. "We really enjoyed
the day."
Only a few former teachers were
able to attend the class reunion, ac-
cording to Diana Webb Harrison,
a reunion committee member. Ms.
Johnny Johnson, a longtime THS
math teacher, was unable to attend
due to health reasons, but she sent
a wonderful letter to the classes she
had taught.
,Harrison said that attendance was
up this year compared to the last two
years most likely because the time of
the reunion was changed from early
evening to mid-day.
THS graduate Ernest Blitch trav-
eled the farthest, driving down from
North Carolina to attend the reunion.
Class of 1936 graduate Hazel Polk
Thomas was one of the oldest gradu-
ates in attendance. Longtime band di-
rector Malcom Kemp traveled from
Headland, Alabama to attend the re-
union.
Entertainment was provided by
Wilda Long and Wanda Jones. Emma
Lou Curry Nesmith played the piano
during the reunion. Also, a power
point slide show featuring old class
pictures was put together by Wanda
Jones.
Pictures from the reunion are avail-
able, call Julee Joiner Brideson at

Longtime Trenton Rotarian presented

Service Above SelfAward


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Trenton Rotary Club honored
longtime member Bill Clifton with
the Service Above Self Award on
Monday, Oct. 15.
A Tennessee native, Clifton moved
to Trenton in June of 1949 as a young
attorney looking for a job. He joined
the Trenton Rotary Club the same
year and has since held every posi-
tion within the club.
"Mr. Clifton was one of my first
contacts in Rotary," said Jo Buckles,
a fellow Trenton Rotarian. "He is our
procedural man. He makes sure we
follow the rules as they are written."

W. 0. "Bill" Clifton is third from left accepting the Rotary emeritus
award plaque from District Governor Ron Richards. Jo Buckles, As-
sistant District Governor is standing at left with Rotary Club Presi-
dent John Frazier supporting the 50-plus year member.


She further describes Clifton as a
very loving, giving and sharing man
who fussed if any of his fellow mem-
bers referred to him as "Mr. Clifton"
instead of "Bill."
Buckles said that Clifton was the
one who introduced women into the
Trenton Rotary Club.
"Mr. Clifton has been a true friend
of everyone in the community," said
Anna Wild, a fellow Trenton Rotar-
ian.
Clifton has inducted all new mem-
bers into the Trenton Rotary Club for
many years, according to Wild.
He was also recognized as a Paul


Harris Fellow. This designation is
given to a Rotary Club member who
contributes $1,000 or in whose name
$1,000 is contributed. Clifton re-
ceived a pin, medallion and a certifi-
cate when he became a Fellow.
In 2003 Clifton was one of the first
residents of Trenton to be inducted
into the Trenton Hall of Fame. Over
the years, Clifton served as a city
councilman, mayor of the City of
Trenton from 1992 to 1996 and city
attorney for 25 years before retiring
from the practice of law in 1990.
He also served as Gilchrist County
School Board attorney for many

Ashley Williams,


On a spooky gloomy i
foggy night there was
B a spooky creepy scary
haunted house that was '
at the end of Elm Street. ,
One Halloween some
f kids were trick or treat-
ing and came upon the
house, they sat there star-
ing at it until .the door
creeked open and some-
one stepped out and said come in,
come guests he slowly spoke. I'm not
going in one girl whispered, what is
the worst that could happen another
boy said sarcastically.
While the kids are arguing, we're
going in the haunted house to see
what they're up to. Inside, all of the
spooky monsters and creepy ani-
mals were sitting around a big round
table waiting for the honored guests

GIL CHRITST COUNTY JOURNAL


THUK r U~~JA Y, '.J'.I..- .1 .J L :)...~ U NiJLi L "


John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


A man that has served the people
of Trenton and Gilchrist County for
more years than I have been alive has
now retired and moved to Gaines-
ville. I am speaking of W. 0. "Bill"
Clifton, a man that needs no intro-
duction when speaking of the past le-
gal formalities and the general day to
day activities in Trenton and Gilchrist
County. Mr. Clifton has been involved
in Trenton and Gilchrist County for
more than 50 years.
As a young attorney, he drafted
the original charter for the City of
Trenton. He served on the City Com-
mission many years later and at that
time took on the task of updating
the Charter of the City of Trenton. I
recall he explained the commission
was not willing to read and take the
time to approve the revisions of the
City Charter.
I can remember Mr. Clifton and
how he would recommend to the
Commission about a certain issue
when Mr. Wesley Campbell, Mr. Bill
Hogan and other past City Commis-
sioners served the citizens of Trenton
for many years. Both of these distin-
guished gentlemen are no longer with
us. When I first began to attend the
Trenton City Commission meetings,
at that time he was the city attorney.


He served in this capacity from 1949
when he came to Trenton until 1974.
He also served the Gilchrist County
School District as their attorney be-
fore he retired at the end of 1989.
At that time Sheree H. Lancaster
was hired as the school district legal
counsel. She and her staff continue in
this capacity at this time.
Years ago when I served on the
Chamber of Commerce Board, I can
recall Bill Clifton was named as the
Citizen of the Year. He also was in-'
volved with Rep. Howell E. Lan-
caster in drafting legislation to have
the Gilchrist County Medical Board
organized to have a doctor come to
this community and begin serving
this area.
When Cindy Jo and I were mar-
ried in 1979 and at that time joined
First Baptist Church in Trenton, Mr.
Clifton was a member of the Deacon
body, taught a men's Sunday class
and was always available to provide
wisdom and information when we
younger people were in need.
Mr. Bill has been a true devoted
friend to this community and now
that he has retired, we all will miss
his expertise and those little bits of
information that he was always will-
ing to provide when we needed it.

tempting the easy way out with the

So where do you start? You might,

Thor Industries, the dominating play-
er in the recreational vehicle industry.

year ago, the shares were trading at

net margins increased in the quarter
due to improved manufacturing effi-
ciencies, lower warranty costs, higher
interest income, and a lower tax pro-
vision due to a favorable tax settle-
ment." Meanwhile, for the year, Thor
earned $2.42 per share, as compared
to $2.89 the previous year. Sales were
also down slightly for the year, com-
ing in at $2.856 billion, as compared
to $3.066 billion the previous year.
Cash, cash equivalents and short
term investments on July 31, were
a record $346.5 million, up from
$264.4' million the previous year,
and the company continues to oper-
ate with no debt. In today's economic
climate that is an excellent position
to be in.
It is always nice when management
stands to benefit from share price
performance, and Thompson owns
upwards of 29 percent of Thor, while
cofounder and vice chairman Peter
Orthwein owns close to 5 percent,
even after a recent sale. Meanwhile, a
recent SEC filing showed that Walter
Bennett, the company's chief finan-
cial officer, just purchased $456,000
worth of the stock and Bennett is
about as close to the company's num-
bers as anyone.
So what is the prognosis for the
stock going forward? The intrinsic
value of the shares using a discount-
ed earnings model, with an earnings
growth rate of 12 percent and a dis-
count rate of 11 percent (average re-
turn on the S&P 500), is $73.A more
conserantlme tree cash flOcv. to the
firm model by Valuepro produces an
intrinsic value of $53.64.
My earnings estimate for this fis-
cal year is $2.95 per share, with a 12
month target price on the shares of
$60, leading to a potential capital gain
of 18 percent. However, be aware
that Thor is a mid-cap stock with a
limited following on 'Wall Street.
Therefore, most of your research is
going to have to come from docu-
ments filed with the SEC, of which
the 10K and 10Q filings are the most
important. You can access all SEC fil-
ings at no charge through the SEC's
Edgar website. Tho'r's website is a bit
sparse but it does have copies of the
company's press releases.

60,000 Products
(Kent Heaton)


Catalogs fill my mailbox on a daily basis. If I had a
nickel for every piece of "junk mail" received over the
years, I .would be a wealthy man. A recent catalog caught
my eye advertising church products. Seventy-two pages
are filled with advent wreaths, candles, communion cups,
Christmas and winter bulletins, anointing oil, tithe and
offering envelopes, candlelight service sets, white ushers'
gloves, songs for communion CD, certificates, record
books, pew and usher supplies, baptismal robes, clergy
and choir robes, church apparel, DVD's, maps, charts,
flags, register boards, hymnal boards, food service, tape,
binders and filing supplies along with printer cartridges;
and that does not include the 60,00 products found on
their website. This all comes with a toll free number.

Antioch" (Acts 11:26). Barnabas and Saul would never

those early days at Antioch to our modern concepts of
religion. The early Christians were simple people who
worshipped God in "spirit and truth" (John 4:24)
without all the trappings of a commercial world. "On the
first day of the week, when we were gathered together to
break bread, Paul began talking to them, intending to
leave the next day, and he prolonged his message until
midnight. There were many lamps in the upper room
where we were gathered together" (Acts 20:7-8). There
were no fancy ornaments or special candles that filled the
house. A group of saints gathered to hear the power of the
gospel from the lips of one of God's servants. They were
not worried about how much time was spent; they only
wanted to hear about the good news of salvation.


No one worried about getting the choir ready or the
PowerPoint correctly set or the: white gloved ushers
scurrying about to make certain all the tithe envelopes
are prepared. Paul wore no special garments (even
though he was an apostle) and his message was not
governed by how many weeks were left in Lent and
Christmas and New Years and Easter and the Fourth of
July and the upcoming election of the Emperor of
Rome. He did not dig his sermons out of sermon books
but the book of truth received from the Holy Spirit (2
Timothy 3:16,17).
Philip, the evangelist, "went down to the city of
Samaria and began proclaiming Christ to them. The
crowds with one accord were giving attention to what
was said by Philip, as they heard and saw the signs
which he was performing" (Acts 8:5-6). The work of
Philip was evident "when they believed Philip
preaching the good news about the kingdom of God
and the name of Jesus Christ, they were being
baptized, men and women alike" (Acts 8':12).
Remarkable to our modem day theologians, Philip did
not offer spaghetti suppers, cake raffles, kids night out,
judgment houses, carnivals, concerts, mother and father
days, pumpkin sales and a host of other modem day
conveniences to bring the masses to Christ. He preached
only the gospel of Jesus Christ (Romans 1:16).
Thousands obeyed the gospel in the first century upon
the simple creed of truth only no need for 60,000
products. I wonder what we are missing today? I suspect'
we only need one thing the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Gilchrist County AARP
chapter news
The Gilchrist County chapter of the
AARP met in the community center
in Trenton on Tuesday, October 16th
and a very busy and productive meet-
ing it turned out to be.
When once President Nancy
Padgett declared the meeting open
and the salute to the flag of the Unit-
ed States of America and the singing
of "God Bless America" took place
it was non-stop presentation of re-
ports from the officers and commit-
tee chairmen.
All was interesting, informative
and focused on the needs and con-
cerns of those of us who. are retired.
It is very comforting to know that
there is such powerful organization
throughout the nation dedicated to
protecting those of us' who are of re-
tirement age, and capable of persuad-
ing the politicians to pass legislation
that meets our changing needs.
Our guest speaker of the day was
Charles Milsted, Associate Direc-
tor for AARP Florida who explained
some of the benefits of the latest
medical program Medicare Part D,
that helps with those of us needing
prescriptions, some of which have
become very necessary but also very
costly.
The other theme for his presenta-
tion was "Divided We Fail" in which
he asked us to support the leaders of
the AARP and support them in their,
efforts to continue to represent thec,
niajoritm of retirees v.hlen it cones to;,
meeting the needs of those the) rep-
resent. He was warmly thanked for
his presentation by President Nancy
Padgett.
Felice Swallow, Chairperson of the
Health Committee gave an interest-
ing presentation on healthy eating
by demonstrating some of the better
health foods available. It is great to
have such a knowledgeable member
in our chapter.
Our membership is increasing but
in proportion to the number of retir-
ees in the area we have room' to grow
and will welcome any who wish to
join us.
We meet eyery third Tuesday of
the month in the community cen-
ter in Trenton from September to
May, there is plenty of parking and
we have some of the best cooks in
the county who bring dishes for the
lunch following the meeting. Do con-
sider paN ing a visit.

Last weekend we went a wander-
ing up north a ways hoping to see
some pretty fall leaves.
We did actually see some real pret-
ty leaves but not where we expected.
The leaves.near Franklin, North Car-
oline were not really turning much
yet. They were mostly brown which
is due to the extreme drought up in
that area. When we arrived in Hia-
wassee, Georgia on Friday afternoon
we were surprised to see the lake
Chatuge nearly half dry. Yes, we had
heard about the drought conditions
around Atlanta but it was sad to see
the nearly dry small rivers and large
lakes.
The best leaves that we found were
when we traveled down two lane
Hwy. 19 between Dahlonega and
Hiawassee. This little road crossed
through Vogel State Park and Chat-
tahoochee National Forest. Each side
of the road was lined with beautiful
bursts of colorful trees.
One of the highlights of our trip
of course was dining at the Dillard
House and enjoying some of the won-
derful' vegetables grown in that area.
The Dillard House was just as good
as I remembered it; the table was
laden with bowls of country cooking
at its best.
As we drove down from Franklin
on Saturday heading for home we
stopped just south of Dillard at the
Osage Farms produce shed. What a
treat this family-run and home owned
business was. It was teeming with
people, many were selecting bright
orange pumpkins for three to four
dollars a piece. This farm has been in
business for just over 10 years. The
owners are Ricky, Clint and Melinda
James and they are from up the road
about five miles on Scaly mountain.
All total the family operation grows
many yarieties of fruits and vegeta-
bles on some 400 acres on various
small farms in that area.
The first item 'that caught our eye
was a wooden farm trailer piled high
WitlT'h'i.e 'heads of" just harvested'
:cabbageCGamrne, N laima 'and I brought
home fresh eggplants, okra, squash,
pole beans, shelly beans, tomatoes,
and corn all grown at Osage Farms.
This farm stand also sells produce
that is grown in other Southern states
like Mississippi sweet potatoes and
Texas sweet onions. All their produce


is grown in America on mostly small
farms.
Another treasure that I purchased
from the stand was a two-pound bag
of whole wheat flour. This flour was
stone ground at Sylvan Mills which
is also located in the Rabun Gap
area of Georgia. This mill has a 27-
foot water wheel and was built over
150 years ago. They also make stone
ground grits and you know there is
nothing creamier than old-fashioned
stone ground grits.
Nothing inspires me to cook more
than a pile of fresh vegetables and a
new bag of flour. So on Sunday after-
noon I began the three hour process
of baking homemade whole bread.
The following recipe is pretty good,
just be sure to give, yourself enough
time to make it.

7 to 8 cups whole wheat flour,
: divided
2 packages dry yeast
1 tablespoon salt
11/2 cups milk
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup honey
Butter, melted
Combine 3 cups flour, yeast, and
salt in a mixing bowl; stir and set
aside.
Combine milk, water, butter and,
honey in a medium saucepan; place
over low heat, stirring constantly,
until mixture reaches 120 to 130
degrees. Stir milk mixture into flour
mixture and beat at medium speed
with electric mixer for 2 minutes or
until smooth. Stir in enough remain-
ing flour to make a stiff dough.
Turn dough out onto a lightly
floured surface; let dough rest 10
minutes. Knead dough until smooth
and elastic (about 3 minutes). Place
in a well greased bowl, turning to
grease top. Cover and let rise in a
warm place free from drafts for 50
minutes or until double in bulk.
Punch dough down, di% ide in half
and shape each portion into a loaf.
Place in 2 well-greased loaf: pans.
Cover and let rise in a warm place,
free from drafts, 50 minutes or until
double in bulk. Bake at 375 degrees
for 30 to 45 minutes or until loaves
sound hallow when tapped. Yields 2
loaves.

Card Of Thanks
In the recent days since the car ac-
cident that could have taken my life, I
have had a lot to be thankful for. I am
overwhelmed by the community sup-.
port. My family and I want to thank
those that said a prayer, sent flowers
or food, or just phoned in to check on
me. I am blessed and really appreci-
ate all the concern and prayers.
Sincerely,
Cindy Watson and Family


Card of thanks from

The class of 1957 wishes to thank
the 125 and more Trenton Tigers that

to visit some for the first time in 50
or more years.

ment to work with will be available.,

The 2007 Superintendent's Gala has come and gone, and was a smashing success. According to numerous re-
ports our young people provided enjoyable entertainment and the food was delicious! A big THANK YOU to our
patrons, parents, and students who supported the Gala. The money raised by this event will go into our classrooms
to support our teachers and students in their effort to master reading.
In my opinion, reading is the key to a student being successful in other areas. To be successful in math, science,
social studies, or language art classes, a child must first be a successful reader. For a driver to navigate Interstate
75, they must be able to read in order to find the correct exit. The same is true in life. No matter what occupation
a child hopes to enter, they must have reading skills. Parents, research shows that the more a child is exposed to
reading before starting to school, the better chance they have of being successful in school. Please read to your
child EVERY DAY.
According to Visit Florida, you can't rent a motel room in Lake Butler, Florida, to spend the night. They don't
have a motel. But Plum Creek Timber Company is planning to have 3,861 acres annexed into the city of Lake
Butler for a housing development. North Florida continues to grow.
Why do people from foreign lands continue to flock to the United States? Because our nation was founded
on the ideals of freedom, individuality, and an entrepreneurial spirit. These values continue to draw foreigners
to our land in hopes of achieving their dreams. Over the years, public schools have helped citizens fulfill these
dreams.
Our teachers accept accountability for whether our students are successful or not. They work hard to achieve
success for every student in the many ways it can be measured. Ultimately, success is defined to the extent by
which every student is able to move from one level of learning to the next and then enter our nation's workforce.
Think about the hundreds of students who have graduated from our local high schools and continued on to suc-
cess as a contributing employee. Now, thank a teacher or staff member.
Bell and Trenton High Schools combined have over 100 students taking dual enrollment courses through
Lake City Community College. Mom and Dad, just think of the dollars you can save if your student starts taking
college courses early in high school. For a start, just multiply 64 (hours) times $60 and that will give you a rough
estimate. LCCC has enrolled over 100 students in evening classes at the Gilchrist Center at BHS. College classes
are now being held in BHS classrooms due to the large number of students wanting instruction.
Parents, we need your help with students behaving themselves while riding our school buses. Our roads are
more crowded now that ever before with so many of our residents working in Gainesville. Please encourage your
child, for safety's sake, to sit quietly and obey bus rules on the ride to and from home. Our drivers are dedicated
to the safety of our children and cannot afford to take their eyes off the road for.an instant. This is truly a life and
death issue.
The first wave of 79 million Baby Boomers will head to retirement in January 2008. How will our nation handle
paying for their Social Security and other benefits? Many retirees will earn about $7600 in retirement benefits per
yr. This is even more reason for our schools to provide opportunities for our students to learn about persons.
healthinsurance,_axes, and mortgages ;Some olfour-students .wilLbec.ome a "-orkei oft he futLure that could ", ell

Please feel free to contact your sc hool and talk to your child's principal and teachers. Also, thank you for
supporting our schools' many extracurricular activities. Please take a minute and thank all of our sponsors, advi-
sors, and coaches for the fantastic job they are doing working with our young people.

Bell Middle
School 7th
Grade Hearts
and Hands Club

Bell Middle/High School, has some
new additions to its club days. Mid-
dle school students are now involved
with their own clubs.
One of the new clubs is the 7th
grade Hearts and Hands Club. The
Hearts and Hands Club is a charitable
service club with the sole purpose of
serving the community in ways to
help others. The club is sponsored
by Mrs. Annettee Mehl. She is happy
and excited about being a part of this
club. Hearts and Hands has begun
their first project by collecting small,
non-perishable items and sending
boxes packed with those items to
recent graduates from-Bellt who are
enlisted in the military. The items
ianne from toothpaste to magazines
to snack foods. The club hopes that
the men and women will receive their
boxes in time for the holidays.
During the year, the Hearts and
Hands Club will help the Bell High
School Beta Club by collecting
canned foods for local families in
need. Another project will be to make
and send cards to the nursing home,
and help with collecting Peanut But-
ter and Jelly for the homeless. Keep
this special group in your thoughts
and if you would like to help by mak-
ing some donations, you can place
items in the designated boxes in the
front office at Bell High School and
at Scaff's Supermarket.

Bell Band News
This year's MPAs at Columbia
High School in Lake City provided
some outstanding performances by
our area bands, some highly regarded
bands missing from the assessment
and definitely some great disappoint-
ments for some bands including our
Purple Powerhouse Marching Band.
To say the least, there was a great
discrepancy among the judges of the
music. For the first time in a while
the Powerhouse Band earned an Ex-
cellent rating. While this was a disap-
pointment to the band, the seniors and
parents, I congratulate all of them on
their handling of the situation and the
commitment to improve.
Some words to our fellow bands:
Trenton, you played some of the best
music we have heard from your band
and you deserved a better rating.
Keep up the hard work, it is paying
off and you can't control one judge.
Williston, your music and marching
were wonderful this year and you,
too, deserved better. Last, but not
least, Ms.Stacey and the Bronson
Screaming Eagles Band, you go guys!
This band has worked hard, stayed at
competitions and concerts long after
other bands have left to learn the best
techniques and their efforts were re-
warded with a Superior. Our hats are
off to your band.
Our gratitude would not be com-
plete without thanking a lot of indi-
viduals for their wonderful support
on Saturday. First, thank you to our
Principal, Rhonda Parrish for attend-
ing and lending her support. Thank
you to the following parents for your
commitment on Saturday, Debbie
Norton-Aronowicz, Elaine Lagasse,
Dermot Burke, Elizabeth Diamond,
James Griffith, David Gray, Joy
Railey, Gloria Friar, Tim and Laurie
Powell, Laurie Ann and Jerry Hunter,
Kevin and Cinnamon McPhearson,
Ronnie and Loretta Jordan, Mary
Kortessis, Beverly Caulkin, Susan
Wells, Ginger Fowler, Connie Jordan,
Yvonne Nobs, former band alumni
members, Matt White, Joy Powell,
Kelly Deane and Stephanie Deane
and our favorite cheering section Mr.
and Mrs. Gover.
Don't forget Alumni Night is
Thursday, November 1st. The recep-
tion is from 5:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. We
look forward to honoring all alumni.
Thursday, November 8th we are
honored to be performing with the
Bell JROTC in their annual Veteran's
Day Salute. If you are a veteran,


please make plans to attend, you will
enjoy it and the JROTC looks for-
ward to honoring you.
Friday, November 9th, is Senior
night with all senior football, cheer-
leaders and band members recog-
nized for their dedication. The band
has seventeen seniors so parents
make plans to be there on this special
night. By Lisa Boutwell

Proud Parents of a Superior Band
We are on the way to a great march-
ing season so far. Thanks to everyone
for your support.

We invite all band and flag corps
parents to come to our next booster

members as well as fresh ideas. We
hope to see you all there.
We would like to thank those who
have helped us to be ready for the
season. Thank you to all of the chap-
erones the last few weeks. We sure
do appreciate your time and energy.
Without you our band wouldn't be
able to go and show Trenton Tiger
spirit.
On November 3rd will be at Hitch-
cock's with a $50 Hitchcock's gift
certificate raffle, as well as Down
Home Days, where we will have a
big jump for the kids, please come
out and show your band spirit.


Bell Middle and High
School PTA news
On Monday, October 15th, the Bell
Middle/High School held its monthly
meeting. After a brief time of every-
one saying their hello's the meeting
got underway. One of the first things
that we discussed was a topic brought
up by one of the teachers. She made
a request for us to look into the pos-
sibility of working on the General
Mills box top saving program. It was
agreed that we should indeed look
into this program and let everyone
concerned know the outcome.
Another issue that was discussed
was the fundraiser that was held at
the Homecoming game. The P.T.A.

Bell High School High-Q continues
Winning Streak
Did you know that the deepest point of the world's oceans is the Mariana
Trench? Were you aware that the code name for the mission to capture
Saddam Hussein was called Operation Red Dawn? Did you know that in
crop rotation, soybeans and alfalfa are planted in the third and last stages
because they are nitrogen fixing plants? These are just a few samples of the
types of questions that the Bell High School High-Q teams are asked when
they are involved in an academic competition. The teams traveled to Union
County High School on Tuesday, October 16th and returned home with an-
other win. Union county has consistently been a force to be reckoned with,
but the team's hard work and practice paid off. These highly motivated
groups of achievers were asked a variety of questions and did a wonderful
job. It was obvious that they were rising to the challenge and willing to do
the work necessary to accomplish their lofty goals.
Bell's High-Q teams look forward to two or more home and two or more.
away matches before heading to the divisional tournament"to wrap up the
regular season. With hard work and good luck they could win a ticket to
the conference tournament as well. Stay tuned for more information about
their progress. Hope to see you at match.


had a stand during the homecoming
parade where they had various spirit
items for sale. They also held a raf-
fle for a beautiful purple sports bag.
Carol Bass was the lucky bulldog fan
to win the raffle. Also for sale was
a bright purple t-shirt with a bulldog
on the front. Go to a bulldog game
and I'm sure you will see one.
After the reports were read, along
with any old business, P.T.A. Presi-
dent Mary Stewart introduced our
guest speaker, Mrs. Maggie Hines
(Media Specialist) from Bell High
School.
Mrs. Hines came to the meeting
to discuss the AR program as well
as the upcoming Book Fair. Accord-
'ing to Mrs. Hines if there is a book
that the student has read on his/her
reading level that the library does
not have a test for, the student can
make up an AR test and she and her
assistant will put it into the system.
Mrs. Hines also told us that the book
fair is scheduled for the week after
Thanksgiving, November 26th to
30th. During the book fair it would
be nice if there were some volun-

This week's high school Star

ple, and still does a wonderful job
at ever. thing he does. Mr. Steve
Broker is the head coach for the
\olle\ball team. as well as the Ag
Teacher and FFA advisor at Tren-

sound like much to man%\ of Nou.
'but the amount of -%%oik that goes
into both jobs is tremendous. He is
almost alw ayvs at school, whether it
is for %olle. ball practice, coaching
the Parliamentar\ Procedure team.
or making sure the steers are read\
for the fair. and v.hen he's not at
school, he is usually hauling his

addition to all of this, he never sa% s

" Recently, Larry Rogers and his
-- son-in-law Jason Jones traveled to
Bolivia to go dove hunting. The trip
consisted of an 8 hour plane ride to
Santa Cruz from Miami and then an-
other plane ride to the lodge that was
in the middle of millions of acres of
. farm land.
The land was very flat and consist-
. ed of an average field length of 7 to
8 miles long. There were some farms
that consisted of 100,000 to 200,000
acres with crops of sunflowers, sor-
, ghum, soybeans, and corn.
The doves were very challenging
but fun to shoot. During their time in
Bolivia, Larry and Jason shot around
2 to 3 thousand doves each. The
doves are considered a nuisance to
the farmers because each one eats ap-
proximately 2 to 3 ounces of valuable
crops per day. Considering that there
are approximately 22 million doves
dy! there, the amount they eat can liter-
ally wipe out crops. The doves that

are shot by the hunters are donated to
the many local Mennonite colonies.
Also, during the trip there were
large emu running wild along with
javolinas (a hog-like animal) that
were great to eat. The trip was a lot
of fun and the two are looking for-
ward to going to other destinations in
the future.


The elk was taken by Jason Jones on a trip that he and his father-in-
law, Larry Rogers, went on to Grand Junction, Colorado. The elk was
the largest taken on the property in 25 years. It was a 6 by 8 and scored
over 370 inches. This was the first time Jason had ever been elk hunt-
ing. There were many elk that we passed that were nice elk and the
trip was almost over when we came across this one during an evening
hunt. The hunt was one that will never be forgotten.
Most of my major disappointments have turned out to be blessings in dis-
guise. So whenever anything bad does happen to me, I kind of sit back and
feel, well,.if I give this enough time, it'll turn out that this was good, so I shan't

enjoy many more.

Joyful Heart Quilters' News


Wednesday, October 17th found 14
Joyful Hearts and 3 visitors enjoying
a slight taste of Autumn in the air as
they drove by fields of golden wild
flowers to gather together to quilt,
craft and enjoy one another com-
pany.
Bonnie Edwards, Diara Lynn, Ann
Taylor and myself worked on more
card carousels for the residents at Ay-
ers while Lera Townsend busied her-
self making yoyo's that will be turned
into Christmas gifts for family and
friends. Myrle Gilkey was crocheting
more slippers for one of our Christ-
mas projects. We now have thirty-six
pair and are counting on everyone to
make or purchase more. Edith Ches-
key, Elaine Nemeth's. best friend,
was in town for a visit and she was
crocheting a beautiful afghan. Just so
happens, she was one of the birthday
gals along with Jackie Moore and
Mary Lou Ryder.
Before sitting down at the Joy-
ful Heart's quilt to make tiny even
quilting stitches, Ann Mangone,
Elaine Nemeth and Pat Luka helped
Cathy Strom decorate the community
room for Halloween. As usual under


Cathy's watchful eye it looks great.
It was a real treat for those who
turned out for the fire department's
pancake breakfast. It will certainly
be appreciated by all who attend our
Halloween Howl on Wednesday, Oc-
tober 31st. Don't forget to bring a fin-
ger food to share.
Alice Binns is teaching Kathy Fink'
to do Swedish weaving and they were
joined by Jackie Moore, and Mary
Lou Ryder, each piece is so unique
.and colorful no wonder everyone
wants to learn how to do it.
Paulene Martin and her hubby,
George, dropped in. She is doing bet-
ter but we still need to keep her and
other's in our group that are going
through some rough times and ill-
nesses in our prayers. Also, we need
to remember Geneva Carver who's
been in and out of the hospital of
late. She should be home soon praise
God.
The time flew by and soon ev-
eryone was ready for ice cream and
cake. It makes getting older so worth
while. Hardly anyone brings lunch
anymore. Like spoiled children we
just eat dessert. That's another ad-


vantage of growing old; you can get
away with odd behavior.
On Friday, October 19th, twelve
Joyful Hearts made a road trip to the
quilt show in White Springs. They
had a great time and enjoyed lunch
at a bed and breakfast highly recom-
mended by Elaine. I could not go
along but I understand that they en-
joyed seeing just how creative folks
can be. Even driving through a tor-
rential downpour on the way home
did not dampen their spirits.
Halloween will soon be just a mem-
ory and Thanksgiving and Christmas
are just around the corner. Will we be
ready? We can only hope so. While
we know we should be grateful,
thankful and count our blessings all
year round, it seems like these holi-
days serve as a reminder of how truly
blessed we are. 'Til next time remem-
bei this Danish Proverb What you are
is God's gift to you; what you do with
yourself is your gift to God.

prizes, for participating. This is a
fund raiser for the Boat Club and they
do a great job with this project. They
also do the lighted Christmas Boat
Parade on the Suwannee River. This
gets underway at 6:30 p.m. Many of
the entries are members of the Boat
Club and we really appreciate their
participation as well. There is a lot
of work put into decorating' these
boats, but oh what a beautiful sight
they are to see as they plow up the
river in the evening. Thousands line
the banks of the river to see them in
their glory. You can see flashlights
and BIC lighters flashing along the
banks, letting the boaters know that
they are enjoying the parade. With
all of the colored lights on the boats,
the people on the boat cannot see out
beyond, so this lets them know you
are. there.
S-Jf you have not gotten your ap-
plication in for a booth for arts and
crafts or food vendors and also to en-
ter your boat in the parade, call the

Thank You!

From the Tammie Tryon Family

I would like to thank employees of Gilchrist County and
especially my co-workers at the Gilchrist County Road
Department and their families, Tammie's friends at Ro-Tech, our -, '(j
neighbors, friends and family for the outpouring generosity,
compassion, gifts, flowers, visits and food that was shared with us
during Tammie's illness and recent death.

From the time Tammie was diagnosed with Leukemia, we had
friends and family by our side. You had us in your prayers and on
prayer chains at churches around the country. You visited the
hospital, sent her cards and gifts and were always asking what you could do to make it
easier for us to cope. There is no way to thank you enough. I can't put into words how
humbled we were by the community support. The fund-raiser and blood drives were
appreciated so much. Early on, Tammie could write and she wanted to personally write
thank you notes and she did. She became unable to write and for a time unable to speak.
She regained some of her speech and soon after had the bone marrow transplant and she
never recovered. Tammie was also overwhelmed by the generosity of not only this
community but as far away as Iowa, Oklahoma, and North Georgia. I believe that is part of
what kept her here. She fought the Leukemia and never lost sight of the fact she was going
to beat it and be able to spend time with the grandkids. She had this faith because of family,
friends and acquaintances and the compassion they had for her and our family.

I want to thank Brother Andy Cook who did the service, Mitchell Cannon who spoke
such kinds words during the service, the Joyner family and Jennie Lou Sharp for the
beautiful song they sang during the service. A very special thanks to the pallbearers. Thank
you to Karen Fisher who kept the kitchen at the house under control,
McKoy and Clyda Mae Hilliard for the use of their motor home and to who
came by, attended the services or just had us in their prayers and thoughts.

May God bless each and every one of you.

SPossum Tryon and Family

10 years after

Where are e
By Carrie A. Mizell
On Friday night the 2007 Trenton High
School homecoming king and queen
will be crowned during a glitzy
half time ceremony that will
conclude this year's home-
coming festivities.
It's been 10 years since
Houston McKenzie and
Devon Beach were
crowned Trenton High
School's homecoming
king and queen, but
both still remember
the thrill they felt upon
hearing their name an-
nounced over the loud
speaker and the thun-
derous applause that
followed.
Where are they now?
After graduating from
THS in 1998, Houston
went to Lake City Commu-
nity College where he earned a
degree in forestry. Devon attend-
ed Santa Fe Community College
and the University of Florida v. here
she earned a degree in food and resource


being crowned...

economics, or as Devon calls it, "ag. business."
After living in Okeechobee for two
months, Devon moved home to Trenton
and worked for the Gilchrist County
School System for two years, be-
fore going into the title insur-
ance business two years ago.
She now works as an agent
at Riverland Title Services,
LLC in Trenton. Two and
a half years ago Devon
married fellow Trenton
High School graduate
Ryan Weaver. They have
an 11-month-old daugh-
ter, Olivia..
After graduating from
LCCC, Houston went
to work as a lineman
for Gainesville Regional
SUtilities (GRU), where he
is currently employed. In
May 2002, Houston married
Bronson High School graduate
Kim Vacha. They have two chil-
dren: Railee, 3, and Zibe, 2.
Both Devon and Houston, along
with their lainilies, still reside in Gil-
christ County.


Dolly Parton's Imagination Library program


"I think I can, I think I can," is the
refrain from the courageous "The
Little Engine That Could," a story of
optimism read to children since 1930
and one remembered by many adults
today. This classic tale of the power
of positive thinking is the first book
of 60 age-appropriate books that will
be mailed monthly to children from
birth to 5 years of age living within.
the Bell, 32619 zip code area and,
registered with the Bell Imagination
Library.
The Bell Imagination Library was
organized and is sponsored by Dan
Cavanah, Bell Town Manager, and


his family. With the support of oth-
ers the goal is to expand the program
beyond the 32619 area making it a
Gilchrist County initiative.
Children who have not developed
some basic literacy skills by the time
they enter school are 3-4 times more
likely to drop out in later years. Nu-
merous statistics attest to the impor-
tance of young children having an
early and frequent association with
books in the home.
"Our community needs to focus
on success for our children. Putting
books in the hands of our children is


a way of promoting their success,"
said Iris Roberts, Bell Library Found
er and the President of the Bell Town
Council.
Dolly Parton began the Imagina-
tion Library in her home state .of
Tennessee because she believed that
income should not be a restriction for
children to have books in their home.
The popular initiative has since
spread to hundreds of communities
throughout the United States. The ad-
ministration costs for the program are
funded, by the Dollywood Foundation
headquartered in Pigeon Forge, Ten-
nessee.

"The ability 'to read' is the great-
est asset we as a society can give our
children and grandchildren. It is a gift
which should be afforded to every
person," said Dolly Parton.
The program is designed to mail
a new, age-appropriate hard-cover j
book each month to every child reg-
istered from birth to age five, just
as they prepare to enter kindergar- t
ten. "Look Out Kindergarten, Here o
I Come" is the final book each child I
will receive. tt
The Gilchrist County community h
can help support literacy and ex- h
pose children to books early in life t
by sponsoring a child. For a $30 do- f
nation, a sponsor provides a book a I
month for one year. A $150 donation s
supports a newborn for the entire five I
years of the program. v
To help sponsor a child or to reg- t
ister a child living within the Bell, v
32619 zip code area contact Dan Ca- a
vanah at Bell Town Hall (352)463- d
