Good Samaritan unknowingly picks up 2 escaped inmates north of Bell


By Carrie A. Mizell
A volunteer firefighter at North
Gilchrist Fire Department helped the
wrong people in .need last Wednes-
day when he stopped to pick up two
hitchhikers who turned out to be es-
caped inmates. ,
Shon Whitwood, 20, of Bell and
his 16-year-old brother unknow-
ingly picked up William Bruton, 30,
and Justin McCullough, 36, along
US 129 near C J's Santa Fe Saloon.
Though the two men were dressed
in regular clothes, they had escaped
from a Florida Department of Cor-
rections work squad in Union County
earlier in the day.


According to Whitwood, the two
men waved him down and told him
they had a problem inside the bar and
needed a ride out of there before ask-
ing if he would drive them to Inter-
state 75. Whitwood agreed to drive
them but first dropped his wife off
and picked up his younger brother.
"I had no idea what was going on,"
Whitwood said. "I thought I was just
helping two people out. They just
looked like good '.ol boys."
Whitwood said he did not feel
like he was in danger when the two
men were in his vehicle. They rarely
spoke.
"When I first stopped, one of them


told me he'd give me $50 for the ride,
but I said I wouldn't take it because
I was just helping them out," Whit-
wood said. "Later he said he'd give
me $50 for gas and then he gave me
$50 to go in the S & S and buy him a
Gatorade."
The Whitwoods had reportedly
been busy on Wednesday and were
unaware that inmates had escaped
and were on the loose. '
A tip off'led the Florida Highway
Patrol to believe that. the two men
could be traveling in the black Hon-
da. Just before 10 p.m., Florida High-
way Patrol Trooper Charlie Caulk
spotted a vehicle matching the de-


scription on State Road 45 near High
Springs. Trooper Mike Jordan and
High Springs police officer Michelle
Kemp assisted with the traffic stop.
Bruton and McCullough were ar-
rested and charged with escape, ac-
cording to a Florida Highway Patrol
report.
Prior to their escape, Bruton was
serving a 10-year sentence for ve-
hicular manslaughter and was set to
be released in December 2012. Mc-
Cullough was serving a three-year
sentence for robbery and set to be
released in 2009.
As of Monday, updated release
dates for the two had not been set.

Mother and child killed

in Thanksgiving collision


By Carrie A. Mizell
A former Trenton Middle-High
School- student and Hitchcock's
Fo0dway employee died on Thanks-
giving when her car collided with a
Dixie County Emergency Services
vehicle near Cross City. Her infant
daughter also died in the accident.
Ashley Nicole Snedeker, 20, and
JoLea Michelle Byrd, 1, both of
Steinhatchee, died in the' accident,
which occurred just before 6 p.m. at
US 19 and County Road 55A.
Snedeker attended TMHS. from
February 2004 to May 2005, accord-
ing to Lynette Langford, principal,
and worked as a cashier at Hitch-
cock's Foodway in Trenton during
the spring of 2005.
According to Lt. Mike Burroughs,
of the Florida Highway Patrol, the
deadly crash occurred when Snede-
ker drove her 1992 Pontiac into the
path of an oncoming Dixie County
Emergency Services vehicle driven
by Michael Scott Gantt, 40, of Old
Town. Snedeker was reportedly
driving north on CR 55A when she
attempted to cross US 19 onto NE
300th Street. Gantt swerved right in
an attempt to miss the car but struck
the right side of Snedeker's car caus-
ing the car to spin and finally stop on
the north shoulder of US 19.
The truck hit a culvert before over-
turning, according to Burroughs.


Ashley Snedeker cuddles her 1-,
year-old daughter, JoLea Byrd.
Both Burroughs and Snedeker were,
reportedly wearing seat belts, how-
ever, the force of the impact broke
the back of Snedeker's seat, which
disabled her seat belt. Both Snedeker
and her child were ejected from the
vehicle. Burroughs said that FHP is
still trying to determine %whether or
not the child restraint seat was prop-
erly secured with a lap and shoulder
belt inside the car.
Burroughs sustained minor injuries
in the accident.

Locke is Character Council


personality of
By Geneva Cornwell
As we continue our lessons on pos-
itive character traits it behooves us
to make all attempts at putting what
we've learned into daily practice,
for in demonstrating good character,
sometimes without words, it is the
only "book" that others read.
This month "detennination" is our
featured quality. Determination is a
choice, the choice to press on despite
what obstacles appear. Obstacles will
come. Their appearance along life's
path should come as no surprise. The
very laws of nature warn that "for ev-
ery action there is an equal and op-,
posite reaction." Any forward move-
ment will meet with some measure of
resistance. 'Determination is merely
the power to overcome any obstacle
or any resistance.

limits by defining a goal and estab-
lishing a deadline to finish it. Deter-
rmination also limits one's attention.
It avoids distractions and remains
faithful to a task until it is complete.
Determination is not giving up. De-
termination is purposing to accom-
plish right goals at the right time,
regardless of opposition.
For the past 57 months, the Char-
acter Council of Gilchrist County has
made it a goal to seek out certain citi-
zens of our beloved county to high-
light because of their specific quali-
ties, which make them stand out in
their circle of family, friends, class-
mates or associates; thus becoming
a personality of the month. For the
school year of 2007-2008 the Coun-
cil made a decision to select, for a
nine-month period of the school year,
high school students. This month,
for the quality of determination, our
featured student is Christina Locke.
Miss Locke is the daughter of Ancil
and Donna Albright and is a junior at
Trenton High School.
During the interview, Christina re-
vealed that at the age of 12, because
of a defective heart valve and with

Christmas Tree Lighting kicks off holiday season
BN Carrie A. Mizell '
"The cro d of 150 people, many clad in holiday s%%eaters. counted dow n the
minutes until the switch was flipped on hundreds of glowing Christmas lights
marking the official lighting of the Town of Bell.
The Town of Bell's second annual Christmas Tree Lighting on Saturday
drew a smaller crowd than last Near, according to Thomas Brown. chairman
of the lighting committee.
"The event is nicer this .,ear I think, but the crowd is smaller because of
the Florida'Florida State football game," Brown said. "1 think its because the
game is in Gaines% ille this year."
Master of Ceremonies Cloud Haley welcomed residents to the celebration
prior to Chris Ruggles sa% ing a prayer. Hardee Myer sang the National An-
them. A moment of silence was then observed in remembrance of American
soldiers serving in Iraq. Entertainment for the evening was the "Singing Re-
flectsons." Light refreshments, including cookies and red punch, were set up ,
inside the Bell Depot.
Angels adorned a Christmas tree inside the Bell Depot. The "Tree of Re-
membrance" held the names of lost loved ones. A spiral staircase next to the
tree showed off Christmas books and holiday candles

Candidate's name: Patsy (Akins)
Avery
How long have you lived in the
Town of Bell? I was born and raised
here.
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion to this office? I wanted to be-
come more familiar with what is go-
ing on, seek ideas and find ways to
help improve and better "The Town
of Bell."
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: This will be the first time for
me in politics, but I have had 21 years
in banking and seven years in the
court system. That is where I learned
leadership and working with the pub-
lic and citizens of our area.
Why are you the candidate for
the job? As council member I will do
my best to keep the interests of Bell
citizens in mind as issues are voted
on and I will work for better ways to
keep up with our growth here in the
Town of Bell.
Do you have a plan to add money
to the city's general reserve? I do
not have a plan yet, but I do have
ideas and I am willing to help find
ways to get what the town needs
without causing a hardship on the
citizens of Bell.
What is your position on a Lake
City Community College' satel-
lite campus being built in Bell? I
would like to move forward with the
adopted vision statement and work
together with the school board, Gil-
christ County and Lake City Com-
munity College in ways that would
be mutually beneficial to everyone.


A college would be available for our
seniors as they graduate from high
school, it will create more jobs in the
area, and anyone who wishes can fur-
ther their education. This would also
bring much needed revenue to our
town. I think this is a tremendous op-
portunity for the Town of Bell.
In your opinion, what are key is-
sues the Town of Bell is currently
facing? Supporting the Lake City
Community College project, unity
among the council and creating ideas
as to how we can provide for. the
growth and needs within the Town of
Bell.
What solutions would you offer
to remedy those issues? By working
together with other council meriabers
and looking for opportunities and
ways to accomplish what is in the
best interest for the Town of Bell.


How will you prepare for future
growth in the Town of Bell? By as-
suring that updated land development
regulations are maintained and look
for programs to help the Town of Bell
with projects that are needed to stay
up with the progress and growth.
What would you like to see
the Town of Bell look like in five
years? (1) Bell Park project that is
now under progress completed with
a larger park, more updated play-
ground equipment and more cov-
ered pavilions with tables. (2) More
paved streets in the Town of Bell. (3)
Have a good "Walk Way" down the
old "Peggy Rail Road Track" so the
citizens of Bell withlhave a safe place
to walk. (4) Work on getting a senior
citizen center in Bell for meals and
recreation. This could also be avail-
able for supervised teen recreation.
(5) Possibility of a red light in Bell.
(6) Safe entrances and exits to and
from the high school and the elemen-
tary school to help control traffic and
safety. (7) Expand law enforcement
in the Town of Bell. (8) But most
of all beautification for the Town of
Bell to make it the best place to live
while maintaining our hometown at-
mosphere. I want everyone to realize
that these are only dreams as to what
I would like to see, but all of us work-
ing together can make things happen.
I,. invite all of the citizens of Bell to
start coming to the town meetings and
share your thoughts and ideas. This is.
your town too. Nothing is going to
happen overnight, but all things are
possible ...


Candidate's name: Ray Sanders
How long have you lived in the
Town of Bell? 47 years
What prompted you to seek elec-
tion to this office? I'm seeking re-
election because the last 47 years, I
have called the Town of Bell home.
I enjoy working for the citizens and
I feel I have served the citizens and
done what's best for them. I will
continue to have the passion to serve
the citizens and I want -to continue
to strive to make it the best place to
live.
Past leadership/political experi-
ence: I have 20 plus years serving
the citizens on the city government
of Bell.
Why are you the candidate for
the job? With my past experience
and I am presently serving the citi-
zens I feel I have the knowledge to
continue to serve. I have called the
Town of Bell home for 47 years and
have the passion to help lead the town
for what's best for the citizens.
What is your position on a Lake
City Community College satel-
lite campus being built in Bell? I
support education anyway I can. As
Gilchrist County is the number one
school district in the state, I feel a
community college in town would be
beneficial for the area.
In your opinion, what are key is-
sues the Town of Bell is currently
facing? Growth would be the num-
ber one issue. With growth we must
also be careful. The city is no differ-
ent than county, or state government.
We have a small budget we must


Ray Sanders
work within. With so many cuts be-
ing handed down to counties and cit-.
ies, we must continue to be careful
and make the best decisions when it
comes to the taxpayers money.
What solutions would you offer
to remedy those issues? The only so-


lution to this issue will be to continue
to keep what's best for the citizens
and remember as taxpayers it's the ir
money we're spending and it should
be spent to benefit the citizens.
How will you prepare for future
growth in the Town of Bell? I would
like to work with the vision commit-
tee, which we have. I would like to
see the town have a growth plan to
prepare for the needs we will have
with growth issues, when there is a
demand for it.
What would you like to see the
Town of Bell look like in five years?
Bell is known as an agricultural com-
munity. I would like to work to pre-
serve this and the history we have in
Bell. I know min five years this could
be difficult with some of the growth
we will be facing. If there is demand
for growth, then I think growth would
be good. My goal is to continue to lis-
ten to the voice of the people for the
future and make the best decision on
what's best for the town and the citi-
zens that call it home.


After 40 years, DeVore retires from Farm Credit of North Florida


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 40-year career was celebrated
Tuesday afternoon at a retirement
reception held for Billy DeVore, loan
officer at the Trenton office of Farm
Credit of North Florida.
At age 23, DeVore joined Farm
Credit as a loan officer shortly after
graduating from the University of
Florida w ith a mechanized agricul-
ture degree
"I was going to be a tractor driv-
er, but I couldn't get a job," DeVore
said.
Dr. H.B. Clark, a UF professor,
and DeVore's friend, Buddy Frazee,
recommended he get a job at Farm
Credit. A Reddick native, DeVore
was hired and given a position in
Bamrnwell, South Carolina. DeVore
and his, .'. ife Ka),.mar-ried during,
his last.year a 1 UF andwere ready to,
strike out on their new life together
in a mobile home they pulled up to
South Carolina.
"I pulled it up there and burned it
down the first year," DeVore said.
"Our son was born the first year we
were up there and he had heat rash
so we had to put an air conditioning
in it. I did all the electrical wiring
and the theory is my wiring is what
caused it to burn."
After the fire, DeVore and his fami-
ly rented a small apartment before he
accepted a new position in Anderson,
South Carolina where they rented be-
fore finally purchasing a home.
After five years in South Caro-

lina, DeVore accepted a position in
Gainesville, Fla. in 1974. When there
was a need, he traveled from Gaines-.
ville to Trenton to serve clients in this
territory.
DeVore began working out of the
Trenton office once it opened in
1980. In 1989, DeVore was needed
in Ocala, but he returned to Trenton
in 1991.

and they know how to make it work.
Some of our most successful farmers
are over here."
Iutialh. the Trenton office pro-
vided both large and small loans, but
that did not give Farm Credit the ef-
ficiency it was looking for, according


to DeVore. After a period of re-struc-
turing, all commercial loans went to
the home office in Alachua, while the
Trenton office retained retail loans,
which cater to part-time farmers.
"Today we have 400 accounts rang-
ing from one cow to several hundred
cows," DeVore said. "Over the last
five or six years we've utilized com-
puter authorization which allows for
more efficiency."
DeVore actually qualified to retire
eight years ago, but didn't feel like
the time was right.
"Our: youngest daughter got mar-
ried and moved out," DeVore said. "A
year before that I was thinking about
when I would retire and I admitted to
myself that I wanted to say that I had
worked 40 years."

He also plans to spend more time is-

John's Comments


The towns of Trenton and Bell
will be holding elections on Tuesday,
December 4, 2007. It is of vital im-
portance to go to the polls and show
your elected officials what you would
like for your community to be in the
future.
The registered voters in Bell and
Trenton have an opportunity to pre-
pare for the future or they can choose
to remain entrenched in what they
have been experiencing for many
years. As these communities con-
tinue to grow their elected officials
can prepare for what is coming to
rural North Central Florida, or they
can continue to be caught behind the
eight ball.
I can speak to Trenton and what this
community is facing because I not
only pay taxes in the municipality, but
I have lived in the community and our
family strives to operate a business in
this municipality. If it makes any dif-
ference, I have enjoyed spending all
of my life here in Gilchrist County. I
love the communities that are in this
area, but I have sat and watched some
of these communities put themselves
in situations that will be extremely
difficult for them to overcome as the
property values continue to increase
and development continues to knock


on the door to come in.
I will refer to Trenton as a small
community that is primarily based
of residents that have SR 26 and US
129 being the main corridors that are
emergency routes to and from the
town.
For several years now the admin-
istration in Trenton City Hall have
made recommendations to the com-
mission in lieu of changes to improve
the City of Trenton. When some of
these changes became policy and ad-
ditional staff was hired, they often
incurred greater expense and did not
give satisfactory service to those of
us that have been paying for them. I
think there are more efficient ways
that this small community can oper-
ate, but they first need to change their
goals and direction.
As I pointed out in the opening
paragraph, the need for your commu-
nity-elected officials to know what
you want is of vital importance. If
the registered voters don't express
their voice and go to the polls, when
your taxes increase because the Com-'
mission increased the millage rate to
provide additional revenue needs in
the City of Trenton, don't be alarmed
because ypu supported business as
usual.


Letter to the Editor


November 26, 2007
It was with great sadness and dis-
appointment, that we read the recent
front-page 'article in the Gilchrist
Journal (November 22, 2007 issue).
The paper just presents the facts, but
we'd like to know some answers, on
behalf of a growing number of us in
the county.. Why, just why, would
some of the Town of Bell elected of-
lcials not be receptive to having a
branch campus, of Lake City Com-
munity College, come to Bell? Is this
a "misguided vendetta' against Mr.
Sidney Philpot's gift of family prop-
erty or just plain small town politics
rearing its ugly head? Personally, we
think that Mr. Philpot is a prime ex-
ample of what one can do in life, if
one thinks. beyond "the box." What
better role model could you ask for,
than a local Bell boy who grows to
be a successful family man, lawyer,
businessman and entrepreneur; yet,
still wants to give back to his local
community, the one' that gave him
those strong Christian values and
- moral roots?
We think that we deserve some
answers, when a few select people
refuse to put the interests of all of


advertising
SPays!


Gilchrist County, especially "our
kids," ahead of their own special
agenda. We would like to hear from
those Bell Town Councilmen instru-
mental in causing resistance and dis-
spnsion.,-towards Mr. Philpot's pos-
sible donation of his family land for a
new college campus. Maybe, it's not
too late to resolve some of their issues
and concerns at hand and still move
forward in a positive direction. We,
for two, would not want to live with
the life-long consequences of reject-
ing this positive opportunity, which
could allow untold potential change
and growth for our area and beyond.
We may not be from here originally,
but we do love Bell, Trenton and
Gilchrist County, and care very much
about its future and our youth. Don't
you? Please enlighten us!

keys, not investors.
Although it may not make you the
life of the party this holiday season, if
someone asks you about your invest-
ment philosophy, simply tell them'
that. you try to exceed an 11 percent
average compounded rate of return
over a period of 3 to 5 years.
In doing so, the end result may sur-
prise you. If you are prudent in your
stock selection, and you let time and
diversification Work to your advan-
tage, while still keeping your risk
profile at a reasonable level, you will
likely leave that long-term average
return in the dust...without breaking
a sweat.
Instead of picking just six compa-
nies last year, I increased the number
to 12 in order to illustrate the power
of diversification. We will review
the first six this week and select six
companies for the coming year. Next
week we will cover the remaining
half-dozen and their replacements.
Last year's selections were Valero
(51.88, 66.73), Siarbucks (35.81,
23.10), Exxon Mobil (72.47, 87.82),.
Caterpillar (61.97, 68.2.8), Procter &
Gamble (62.84, 73.21) and Staples,
(25.37, 20.28). The numbers in pa-
renthesis show the price a year ago
and the price as Nov. 20. The simple
average return for those six compa-
nies is 3.5 percent. Add in dividends
and the return goes to 4.8 percent.
\Vau n1 inute our goal is r'min'r--
mum of 11 percent True, but ia.- is
over 3-5 years.' Last year's selec-
tions did not turn in an outstanding
performance...until you consider that
during the same period the S&P 500
index had a return of 2.5 percent and
the current yield on a 10-year Trea-
sur) note is 4.01 percent. During the
same period the Vanguard index fund
(VFINX) had a gain of 2.2 percent.
Now do you' see why 3-5 years is so
important? So would I continue to
hold all six? Absolutely.
However, to keep things interesting
we will also pick six ne\ candidates
for Ithe upcoming year? Energy is go-
ing to continue to have a major im-
pact on the economy and two major
players in this aiena are Transocean,
Smith Industrines. On the technol-
ogy front Hewlett-Packard, Seagate
and Actuate should show some nice
capital appreciation going forward.
Finally, let's continue with Procter &
Gamble to cover consumer goods.
Next week we will see how our
other six stocks performed and pick
six additional candidates.
You can write to financial colum-

They call the conclusion of a chess
match the end game and it takes'
special skills to master that part of
the contest. In the stock market, we
have the end-of-the-year-game. What
makes this time of the year so unique
'is tax-loss selling and profit taking.
Specifically, the period between
mid-November and the end of the
year produce some of the best stock
buying opportunities of the entire
year. Many investors plan to do as
much as 80 percent of their 'annual
buying and selling during this pe-
riod.
End-of-the-year bottom fishing
is quite simple. You are looking for
companies whose shares are show-
ing weakness, either because they are
part of this tax-loss cycle, or are sim-.
ply undervalued as the year comes.
to a close. This year is an excellent
example of both.
Each year I try to help those who
are short of investment ideas by com-
ing up with candidates whose per-
formance I then review a year later.
These companies are not an instant.
portfolio, where you simply add wa-
ter and mix. Rather they are supposed
to be a catalyst designed to stimulate
your own investment thinking.
Furthermore, you cannot judge the
efficacy, of any stock selection based
on a one )ear return. Recognize that"
the S&P 500 index offers up a long-
term average annual return of about
11 percent. Now ask yourself, how
upset you would be if your portfolio
cuntinuall' exhibited a minimum of
an. 11 percent' average annual com-
pounded return. *;
However, leti m reiterate a point I
have made many times before...it is
foolhardy to believe that you can al-
ways pick just those,companies that
will show the highest price apprecia-
tion during any given year. Swinging

you a pure shame. Pray tell, what in

truly a very sad day when I learned
that Dixie Lily, yes our old standby
has gone out of business.
While tr\ ing to get the facts straight
this week I called Southern Spe-

Lily in Brentwood, Tennessee to see.

holding my breath, just a praying that
some nice young receptionist would
answer the. phone and say that I had
come across some bad information.
But I'm sad to say the. only heifer I
heard on the other end of the line was
some old recording saying the num-
ber was no longer in service.
For several weeks now I've been
searching grocery shelves for Dixie
Lily grits, white corn meal, and that
little red bag of hush pupp\ mix. But
looking high and low I have not been
able to locate them in an\ area stores.
Just wn rating bout those hush puppies

Well after receiving the bad num-,

mouths were filled with those grainy
things. Now you know I like butter
but there isn't enough butter to make
bad grits taste good.
Years ago we even had a Dixie Lily
Plant right here in Trenton it was lo-
cated across the street from the Old
Tavern. They bought corn from local
farmers and ground it into grits and
meal.
The Dixie Lily plant in Williston
ran non-stop for some fifty years or
so before it closed in 2003. The com-
pany was bought out in 1996. Since
that time many changes have been
made including moving Florida
plants to Georgia.

only say that Dixie and Southern
food will never be quite the same,
now that our grocery shelves no lon-

this sad occurrence.

fji' ELECT,





SWMAYOR


City of Trenton


To All who vote and help me in this election, December 4th:
I want you to talk to everyone you see, and help us to win this election.
With my past political experience as Clerk of Court 12 Years, County Commissioner 4 Years in Suwan-
nee County, and 4 Years as Mayor of Trenton, all these offices had to do with making and working with
budgets, which was never over-spent. I believe with my life experience running my own business and the
above-mentioned political offices, all with success, qualifies me to make a good mayor. My opponents are
both good men. But, listening to other people has got our City loaded with debt, of which they seem to
not understand how to handle. I promise you with the help of my fellow commissioners, we will turn our
City's business around and start things going that will be good for our citizens.
With the proposed Community Redevelopement Agency plan, had our citizens not got involved, our
people would have got loaded with 30 year payments which would have kept us from going forward. This
project has a $100,000 debt service, plus $25,000 interest payment. This year the money could have gone
a long way in paying our other bills. "Money Lost." Our budget reflects a total of $71,500 interest this
fiscal year to pay, not counting principal payment on indebtedness, which we need to address in a most
positive way.
I understand the serious responsibility of sound management and careful planning, if we are to have a
prosperous and beautiful city. Again, with the help of my fellow commissioners we will handle our City's
business in a way to make a difference and meet your approval in the management of our City as a whole.
Thank you for your vote.
May God bless us all,
Lavaughn A. Sessions

he had to be thankful for. Thanks,
Hank, for coming.
Following his talk, we all en-

MAYO RA


Dear Friends,
Thank you so much for
.-'=" welcoming me into your homes
and for the encouragement you
have given over the past few
weeks. My position with the City
of Trenton is not something that I
take lightly. I have a great desire
to serve as your next mayor.
I am excited about the great
strides we have made financially
over the past year. The City
Manager recently reported to the
board that overdue bills had been
Reduced by $20,000 during the
2006-2007 Budget Year. What,
this means is we spent $20,000
less than we anticipating by focusing on spending only
when needed. For the current budget year we have
budgeted a surplus of approximately $25,000 which will
also go 'towards these bills. If we continue to be frugal in
our spending, these bills could realistically be resolved
within this fiscal year. As your finance chairman I am
dedicated to seeing that this issue is resolved as soon as
possible so that these surplus revenues can go into general
fund reserves.
I am grateful for the opportunity that you have given me
to serve and anticipate many more years of service.
On TUESDAY, DECEMBER 4, I ask you to cast your
vote for me, GLEN THIGPEN FOR MAYOR. If you
have questions involving the business of the City of Trenton
please call. 463-0312

Gilchrist County remembers when...


In 1976, Melanie Watson, sophomore, was elected secretary of the
FHA State Association. Sharon Rodgers, Vice President of the
Trenton FHA, holds the Honor Roll Plaque awarded for Outstand-
ing Chapter during 1975-76; Cherri Hall, junior, had been recently
elected is President of the Trenton FHA Chapter for the year 1976-
77; all three girls were delegates to the State FHA Convention.


Nine times out of ten, when you
extend your arms to someone, they
will step in, because basically they
need precisely what you need.

VOTEFOR AND RE-ELECT


C.A. PETE RANPOLPH 1
**FOR MAYOR**

I have been your working mayor for six years. I would /
like to tell you a few things that have occupied these six
yeArs; that most of you may not be aware:

During the bad storms we had in 2004, I was out working with Emergency
Management day and night doing anything and everything I could to help. I
spent hours talking and helping make accommodations to keep the dialysis
center in Trenton which might otherwise have been forced to leave the Trenton
area.

When the new sewer plant was being constructed, I visited often and learned
much about how it operates. I had many talks with the engineer and operator
to make sure we received the most for our money.

I have spent hours consistently going over the budget to enable the City resi-
dents to be treated fairly.

I have also gone out at night to check and tag street lights that are out, then
had Progress Energy notified so our residents could be safer on the streets.

I visited and learned much when they installed the sewer lines and lift station
in Pine Estates, which ultimately will increase land values. I have worked on
the Zoning Board to make sure our City can accommodate new subdivisions
and ultimately generate more tax dollars for the City.

I have attended multiple meetings for Water Management, League of Cities,
Historical Society, Assisted Living Facility and Conceptional Regional Water
Supply Plan for a new well field which is sorely needed by the City. I am on
the Advisory Committee for the Character First Council. I have spoken in
classrooms at Trenton Elementary to educate our children on responsibilities
as a public official. Attending and moderating meetings is just a small part of
being Mayor.

I love this City. I was not born here but have made Trenton my residence by
choice. I am always available to the residents to hear and help solve their con-
cerns and have always tried to be kind and helpful. I am a hands-on Mayor. I
have worked hard to be the type of Mayor you want because of my love for the
city and its residents.

I would appreciate your vote on December 4, 2007.

tin can be as small as a deck of cards
or a big as a popcorn tin). Then you
walk around the tables of cookies and
pick out the ones that you want, put
them in the tin and wonder of won-

is much better than what some stores

could go tell others where you got
those wonderful treats. We will be

By Sean Boutwell
Monday, November 19th
The Lady Bulldogs returned to
the court for the 2007-2008 season
led by Coach Roy Harden III. Coach
Harden 111, or "Coach Three" as he
is called by most Bell students, is in
his second year as Head Coach of the
Lady Bulldogs.
Last year the Lady Bulldogs fin-
ished with one of their best seasons in
recent' memory under Coach Three.
This year the Lady Bulldogs were left
with the task of building on their suc-
cess from last year without some key
players. The Lady Bulldogs' starters
for their season opener against Coun-
tryside were Ashley Wood, Amy
Ergle, Samantha Williams, Somer
Maresca, and Juliee Nobs. The girls
-started out great. They ran up and
down the court scoring baskets then
playing great, defense. The excite-
ment didn't last very long in this one.
The Lady Bulldogs pulled away to a
big lead early, thanks to the offense
from Ashley, Amy, and Samantha.
The entire team played great defense
and the second half was just a blow-
out of Countryside. Amy Ergle was
the player of the game for the Lady
Bulldogs, she scored 15 points, had
7 assists and 4 steals. The Lady Bull-
dogs won their opener- big with the
final score of 54-10.
After the Lady Bulldogs had won
their game it was time for Coach
Chuck Mehl and his Bulldogs to
show how they could manage after
losing an important group of Seniors.
The new starting five for Bell was
led by Seniors Joel Elliot and Justin
Johnson. Jon Bailey, Jordan Mehl
and James Thomas made up the rest
of the starting line up. The Bulldog's
offense struggled early, they scored
easily enough when they had the ball,
but turnovers plagued their progress.
However, like the Lady Bulldogs the
men showed great defensive play
that, kept Countryside far behind
them. The first quarter ended with a
great block from Josh Randolph that
pumped up the Bulldogs and showed
a sign of'things to come for Country-
side.
The second and third string play-
ers were off the bench early in the
game and played just as well as the
starters. Countryside improved their
,play greatly in the second half but
:the Bulldogs were just too far ahead
for them to catch. Joel Elliot led the
Bulldogs with 17 points and the Bull-
dog. a.o won their opener with the
final score.of 51-28.


Tuesday, November 20th
The Bulldogs were home for their
second straight game and this night
they would be hosting a more formi-
dable opponent in the Dixie County
Bears. The Bulldogs got an unexpect-
ed boost from their fans with the cre-
ation of "The Dawgpound" which is
the new student-run cheering section
for Bell. Dixie County had trouble
adjusting to the noise and harassing
but respectable chants from the stu-
dents. Bell took advantage of Dixie's
miscues and gained an early lead. But
again turnovers hurt the Bulldogs,
along with some missed shots. Dixie
stayed close but. Bulldogs held the
lead at halftime. The offense came
from Joel Elliot, who scored 18, and
the Bulldog's big man James Thom-
as, who scored 17 points and had 15
rebounds.
The second half the Bulldogs'
stayed out of turnover trouble but
started committing too many fouls in
the 4th quarter and Dixie was able to
stay close. The final few minutes of
this game showed the few problems
the Bulldogs will try to workout in
the first few games of the season.
These problems (mainly fouls and
turnovers) cost the Bulldogs this
game. The Dixie County Bears de-
feated the Bell Bulldogs 63-59.

TES's food drive a huge success

for Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving is a wonderful time
of the year. It is a time for thanksgiv-
ing and being with family. Thanks-
giving is also a time for helping oth-
ers with what we have been blessed.
Trenton Elementary did just that this
year! Once again, TES conducted a
food drive to help families with food
this holiday season. The students at
TES rose to the challenge, bringing
in canned goods and money to buy
turkeys, eggs, and potatoes. TES
was able to help 25 families this year


with a Thanksgiving basket. Our stu-
dents worked hard to help families in
our community. How wonderful it is
to live in such a giving community.
Working together we can make a dif-
ference!
TES will now begin working to
help faAilies for Christmas. We will
be taking toy and money donations.
If you would like to help, please con-
tact Christie McElroy or Gail Dasher,
Guidance Counselors at Trenton El-
ementary School, 352- 463-3224.


A $500 cup of soup!


Christy Jones' class at Trenton
Elementary School recently held a
soup, salad, and breadstick fundrais-
er. Over $500 was raised in a matter
of three hours! The money is being
used to fund the class' field trip to
Sea World in March 2008.
Mrs. Jones' class is a special needs'
class consisting of 6 very special stu-
dents. Their disabilities range from
learning disabled to autism. These
students work very hard every day
learning such things as how to com-
municate through pictures, words',
and even some sign language.
, The fundraiser was only a; success
due to some wonderful people and
local businesses. It was down to the
wire on the morning of the fundrais-
er, when the volunteer who was sup-
posed to pick up the donated salad
from Bell's restaurant called to say
he was unable to pick up salad for the
100 people who had pre-ordered a
lunch. Not to worry though, because
as soon as Bell's restaurant heard the


dreadful news, they came through
and delivered the salads right to the
school front desk.. The Winn-Dixie
in Chiefland then stepped up and do-
nated all of the soup bowls and lids.
We also had donated to-go plates
from Bar-B-Q Bill's; Burger Spot
threw in the cups, lids, and. straws
while Hitchcock's donated over 14
gallons of their famous sweet tea!
The cafeteria staff donated and baked
the fresh garlic breadsticks that came
with each meal. Several volunteers
baked desserts and made delicious
potato. soup from scratch. Appar-
ently, the soup was so tasty that many
people have since requested the rec-
ipe! One of the biggest efforts came
from the front office staff, and a few
other special people who helped dish
out soup and make the deliveries.
All in all, Mrs. Jones' class is now
able to go to Sea World at no cost to
the students due to the success of this
$500 cup of soup.

ahead of schedule. Melvin Mock of-
fered up prayer for the beginning of
a safe and enjoyable tour. Our first
stop was at Golden Corral in Jack-
sonville for breakfast. No one left
hungry! Lots of bus activities kept
us busy between our meals and com-
fort breaks. Our dinner was in Rocky
Mount, North Carolina, at the K&W
Cafeteria and Howard Johnson Inn
provided our lodging.
On the second day of our trip our
group began the day with prayer. Pat
Patterson prayed for God's protection
and safe travel. Our Honorary Chap-
lain, Joe Elder, gave a great devotion
on the life of Daniel and the example
he lived for the Lord.
Then it was time for our famous
sing-along. Myrtle Roberts and
Faye Sheffield taught the group the
son, "I'm Happy Today," a snappy
song with a good message. Imogene
McLeod led the right side of the bus
and Rose Williamson led the left side
in a chorus of rounds singing Ho Ho
Ho Hosanna. It was a lot of fun and
we believe Rose's side won! That is
if you ask Rose!
Arriving in Baltimore, Maryland,
making our way to Harbor Place, we
went by the stadium where the Ra-
vens were playing football and by the
Camden Baseball Stadium, home to
the Baltimore Orioles. Now it was
time for shopping and eating. W-e-l-
1, inflation became a reality when the
cheapest thing on the menu at two of
their popular restaurants was $21.99
for lunc Ii. ve Jdcc ided ,% e weren't that
hungry. We walked out and found a
place that suited our pocketbook!
We were in Lancaster, Pennsylva-
nia in'time for dinner. We didn't miss
Bell one bit, the aroma from the dairy
farm next to the Harvest View Fam-
ily Restaurant, made us feel right at
home. Howard Johnson Inn was our
home away from home for the next
five nights. We were ready to unpack
our bags and stay awhile.
After a restful night, we were eager


The folks who made the trip enjoyable. From left to right Escort Will
Williamson, Glorine Sanders, Yvonne Martin, Rose Williamson and


Driver Amos Miller.
to hit the road for Gettysburg, Penn-
sylvania. Bill Williamson lead the
group in Prayer thanking God for His
goodness and asking 'for traveling
grace for the day. Our first stop was
President' Eisenhower and his wife
Mamie's retirement home and farm.
His top-grade black Angus cattle
were his pride and joy. We had reser-
vations for lunch at General Pickett's
Buffet. They were all set up and wait-
ing for us to arrive.
That afternoon, we picked up a
step-on guide and headed for a tour
of the Gettysburg National
Park. This is where the greatest
battle on American soil was fought.
The three-day battle fought July 1-3,
1863, resulted in 51,000 casualties.
We stopped'and took pictures of the
monument from our good state of
Florida.
On our way back to Lancaster, we
stopped in York, Pennsylvania and
had dinner at the Old Country Buf-
fet.
Day three of our trip started with
Weeks Deen praying for our safety
and it was off to Hershey, Pennsyl-
vania, the "Chocolate Capital" of the
world. Our first stop was the Found-
ers Hill, the pride of the school cam-
pus. Mr. Hersey and his wife, started
a school for needy students from age
four through high school. He left his
entire fortune in trust to finance the
amazing project. The students are
clothed, fed, and housed at no cost to
them or their families.
Hershey Chocolate World was next
on the agenda, we enjoyed lunch
and shopping. We have never seen
so many chocolate items under one
roof. We left there carrying quite a bit
of chocolate with us.
SThat afternoon we enr to the Mil-
lennium Theatre to see the perfor-:
mance of "In The Beginning." We
saw the Garden of Eden appear, the
water, vegetation and animals of the
newly created world. We experienced
God's pleasure at His most unique
creation, Adam and Eve. It was a
sell-out performance! There were 29
motor coaches in the parking lot.
Dinner that night i as at the Hersey
Farm Restaurant in Lancaster. Their
speciality was mouth watering PA
Dutch recipes on their grand smor-
gasbord. You guessed it, there was
still time to shop after dinner in their
gift shop.
Before leaving Lancaster on day
five Bill Williamson prayed for our
safe keeping that day as we traveled to
Valley Forge.' Our step-on guide was
,very knowledgeable of all the events
that took place with George Washing-
ton and his Continental Army during
their brutal winter of 1777-1778. We
toured Washington's Headquarters,
soldier huts. the big Memorial Arch
and the George Washington Memori-,
al Chapel. A Lutheran Congregation
still worships there with a member-
ship of over 300. There were deer all
over the park.
Our next stop was the King of
Prussia Mall for lunch at their food
court and more shopping. This mall
is the East Coast premier shopping
destination. Most of us just ate lunch.
We weren't used to shopping at Nor-
dstrom, Bloomingdale's, Macy's and
Lord & Taylor! There was no Wal-
Mart in this mall!
We stopped at the Intercourse Can-
ning Company that afternoon. They


were canning pickles while we were
there. Lots of us had to bring home
some of their fine products. Plain and
Fancy Farm Restaurant in Bird-In-
Hand, is where we had dinner. We
dug right into the made-from-scratch
full course meal, which was served
family style.
On Day six, Joe Elder started our
day with prayer, thanking God for
His many blessings and prayed for
safety for the group. We then set our
course for the Big City of Philadel-
phia where there was a lot of traffic.
Our first stop Was the Eastern State
Penitentiary. This penitentiary was
the most modem prison in America
in 1902. The prison was designed to
inspire penitence or true regret in the
hearts of,criminals. The original sev-
en cell blocks spread like the spokes
of a wheel and had running water and

Late morning found our group at
Penn Landing boarding the Spirit
of Philadelphia, the area's premier
harbor cruise ship. We enjoyed live
entertainment, a delicious luncheon
and a fantastic view of the Philadel-
phia skyline from the Delaware River
side.
That night we attended the Rain-
bow Dinner Theater in America's
only all comedy dinner theater. The
grand finale in Pennsylvania. Dinner
came first and then laughter as we
watched "Tons of Money."
We left Pennsylvania behind on
day seven. Jimmy Sheffield started
our day with prayer, thanking God
for being so good to us. We made our
way to Spotsylvania Mall in Virginia
just in time for lunch. Our directions
to the mall were misplaced but Mary
Kate Colson had a niece, Nancy who
lived in the area and she directed us
to the mall entrance by way of cell
phone.
Golden Corral in Rocky Mount,
North Carolina provided 'our dinner
meal and we were back again at How-
ard Johnson Inn for our final night.
Frank Colson prayed for travel-
ing grace and a safe trip back to Bell
at the beginning of day eight. We
stopped at Cracker Barrel in Savan-
nah for our last meal together on this
tour.
We would like to thank Kathleen
McElroy for providing some of our
bingo prizes, Glorine, Yvonne and
Rose for their help with the snacks
while in route. Also special thanks to
the whole group for their cooperation
to make this trip enjoyable. Bill and
Amos also thanked the group for their
appreciation gift. Fabulous. Coach

our fine motor coach. Niagara Falls is
our destination for the spring tour.

Dudley Farm Saturday
The 2007 Cane Grinding at Dud-
ley Farms is planned for Saturday,
December 1. The event will begin at
9:00 a.m. and last until 3:00 p.m.
This annual event commemorates
donor Miss Myrtle Dudley's birthday
and continues the farm family tradi-
tion of grinding sugar cane and boil-
ing cane syrup. Grinding cane with
a mule, utilizing heart pine for the
fire, and bottling the syrup, all at the
original cane syrup complex, makes
this a unique, old-time community
gathering.
Visitors may tour the farm and see
other traditional activities and craft
demonstrations. Cane syrup, corn-
meal, grits, craft and farm products
will be for sale. Food and drinks will
be available.
Dudley Farm is a 325-acre park
that is an original working farm rep-
resenting the lifestyle of the 1880s-
1930s. Work activities, buildings and
clothing are all authentic to that time
period.
The farm is located between New-
berry and Jonesville on state road
26.
The event on December 1 is free;
normally it is a $4.00 per car charge
to enter Dudley Farm.
For more information, call 352-
472-1142 .


nique. Man\ times one of the
Springhouse members will learn a
new pattern or technique and will
teach the other members. A quilt
teacher is much like a coach- she
will give the quilter the inspira-
tion, desire and the push to start and
complete another quilted project.
Springhouse members are always
eager to learn new techniques and
patterns.
The annual Christmas party for
Springhouse Quilters will be held
during the first week of December.
New officers will be installed and
beginning in January, a new quilt
year with new leaders will begin.

History of Florida
forests to be presented
December 2
Trace "A History of Florida For-
ests" with author Barry Walsh as she
takes visitors on a. natural journey
through Florida's unique past from
2:30-3:30 p.m. on Dec. 2 at the Flori-
da Museum of Natural History.
Beginning with the discovery of
this rich land, learn about the effects
of harvesting Florida's natural re-
sources and how a young generation
of loggers became passionate conser-
vationists. A book signing will follow
the discussion.
Walsh was editor for the Marie
Selby Botanical Gardens research
journal "Selbyana" for eight years,
as well as a columnist for the "Long-
boat Observer." She uses her writing
to defend the natural environment
and her most recent project, editing
"The Kendrick Papers," culminated
in the publication of the book Bay-
nard Kendrick started in 1966, "A
History of Florida Forests." She also
is a member of the Society of Ameri-
can Foresters.

S "i













In July 1983, I opened L. Frank Grant Realty at 216-A
North Main Street, Trenton. Since that time, with the help of
my assistant, Dot Cuesta, and Associates, I have worked

from that location. Now I have moved the office to 701 NE
1st Av enue. Trenton.
This move will help me spend more time with my wife
(Francine) and also make it easier for Dot to look after the
office when I'm away.

Many thanks to Dot for providing the space for the office
and help in making the move possible. We will have the same
phone number 352-463-2817 and e-mail address of
lfgr@bellsouth.net
We appreciate our customers of the past and hope to provide
the same personal service for the future.

find ways to develop herself in quiet
ways. She discovered that she finds
great joy in writing and in serving
others. She writes sentimental poems
and is currently working on a novel.
She also participates in the "Interact
Club" at Trenton High School; the
club is sponsored by the Rotary and
is in\ o1\ ed in local, state and national
communit- service work.Miss Locke
shared that "In order to do anything
you must have a drive to do it; to
overcome obstacles. To be something
in life you need to be determined."
She related that it's a real challenge
to get school work done on time. She
said, "It's extremely easy to procrasti-
nate, but to get good grades one must
be determined to learn." Christina's
drive, after high school graduation,.
is to attend Salisbury University in
Maryland, working toward a major in
creative writing with a minor in art.
This determined young lady gave
an encouraging word for those who
seek encouragement. She said "For
anyone who really wants something
bad enough, you need to push your-
self and do those things that need to
be done to get where you want to be."
Her motto for life is "'You've got to
want to get it."
