George Jones named Cattleman of the Year


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The cattlemen of Gilchrist County
came together this week for their an-
nual meeting on Thursday, April 17.
People that don't know much about
the state only think of Florida as
sunshine, beaches, and theme parks.
But hundreds of years ago, long be-
fore tourists or even cities, there was
another Florida. When the Span-
iard Ponce de Leon discovered it in
1513, Florida was mostly wide, green
spaces. In 1521 when he returned, he
brought cattle and horses. Ponce de
Leon and his explorers made Florida

was asked what the award meant to
him? Jones said "It means a lot to me,
I started in the cow business when
the cows were in the woods. At 10
years old, just a boy, my father gave
me ,my first cow and calf. When the
calf matured to an 800-pound bull, I
sold the calf to a neighbor as a stock
bull. That was the first $100 bill that
I had ever saw. The cow business
has changed since then, I have seen
the times when the cow prices were
good and I have seen cheap prices."

Commission approves


change order for EOC


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
once again approved more change or-
ders for the new Emergency Opera-
tions Center on
Monday, April 21.
Brian McGee representing the Al-
exander Group explained to the board
that change order #14 identifies that
two three-way electrical switches
and one four-way switch were left
off of the original working plans. The
change order request for $841.02 will
provide the switches for the appara-
tus bays in the new facility. ,
. Philip Rickman of the Rickman
Partnership, Inc., the architecture
group on contract for this project,
submitted the change order to explain
the problem.
The reason for' this change or-
der is due to the fact that switching
for the overhead lighting in the Ap-
paratus Bay was not indicated on
the construction documents. This is
considered an addition to the proj-
ect cost because it was not included
in the construction documents and
therefore not included in the project
cost. The company representative
further explained that the change or-
der would provide a proper function


of the Apparatus Bay and would have
been a part of the construction cost
had the switching been included on
the construction documents.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to approve the change
order for the identified amount. Com-
missioner Kenrick Thomas gave a
second before the board voted 4-0 in
approval.
Brian McGee again asked the
board to approve Change Order #15
for the new Emergency Operations
Center north of Bell. This request
identifies that an electrical disconnect
switch which includes a meter, con-
nect panel and disconnect panel were
all left off of the electrical drawings.
Rickman Partnership Inc. 'submitted
a letter which reported the change or-
der identified a current transformer,
and meter, a CT cabinet and service
disconnect which would include
grounding conduit and wire as re-
quired. The change order identifies
$5,214.88 to make the improvements
in the new construction.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion to approve the request
and Commissioner Thomas agreed
with a second. The board voted 4-0
in support of the request.


Gentry will seek office as

county tax collector
Friends and Neighbors of Gilchrist
County, my name is Mitchell Gentry.
Because you desire to be informed
voters, and because I am seeking the
office of Gilchrist County Tax Col-
lector, I would like to tell you a little
about myself and why I believe that
I am a proven experienced leader.
My personal life of leadership comes
with the fact that, Theresa, my wife
of twenty-five years, and I, have two
grown children who, in turn, have
blessed us with three grandchildren.
Son, Steven, with wife, Nicole, are
parents to five-year-old, Colby, and
our daughter, Leah, and husband,
Jim, are parents to three-year-old
daughter, Emma, and son, James Mitchell Gentry

Former THS baseball players honor Malloy


By Carrie A. Mizell
With a baseball cap pulled down
low, Tommy Malloy gazes out across
the Trenton Tigers baseball field as
players clad in pin stripe uniforms
warm up. The longtime THS baseball
coach does not miss a ballgame, or a
practice for that matter.
Something seemed a little fishy to
Malloy when his son-in-law, Scott
Guthrie who is the head Trenton Ti-
gers baseball coach, called and asked
that he arrive for the last regular sea-
son ballgame early on Thursday eve-
ning.
The humble coach, who .dedicat-
ed 13 seasons to the Trenton Tigers
was surprised when he arrived at
the field and learned that the teams'
new batting facility would be named
in his honor. Malloy was even more
surprised to see that 29 of his for-
mer baseball players were present to
honor his contribution to the Tigers
baseball program during his tenure as
coach from 1988 to 2000.
"I remember that he would always
point that half a finger at you while
he was talking to you ... that's when
you knew he was serious," said Kyle
Aylor, who pitched for the Tigers
baseball team from 1997 to 2000.
Former Tigers baseball player
Ryan Weaver said Malloy's competi-
tive spirit and passion for the game
is apparent not only on the field, but
also in a fishing boat.
"He makes a good fishing buddy
now that he's retired," Weaver said.
"We go fishing together every Mon-
day."
According to Guthrie, the name
will become official once proper
approval is granted by the Gilchrist
County School Board.
Initial discussion among the for-
mer players during the annual alumni
baseball game held March 1 prompt-
ed the dedication by the Trenton High
School Diamond Club.
"He helped me learn to control my
temper," Weaver said. "Coach Mal-
loy is always trying to get the most
out of you not only as a player, but
as a person,"


2008 Election
Additional candidates have sub-
mitted paperwork to the Gilchrist
County Supervisor of Election's Of-
fice stating their intent to seek public
office in the 2008 primary and gen-
eral elections.

fice and each candidate's party affili-
ation is featured on page 16.

Wilbur and Betty Bush's home on Fifth Avenue in Trenton caught fire and burned last Thursday.


I saw the heavy black smoke in the
area and arrived on scene I knew it
was a structure fire."
Gilchrist County Public Safety
Director Carlos Perez arrived at the
home within a minute of Suber and
estimated that 20 firefighters would
be needed to fight the fire. He called
for all Gilchrist County units to re-
spond as well as units from Levy
County and Fanning Springs.
Perez said he will never forget see-
ing all the power lines within three
blocks of the home sparking. While
Perez was placing a call to the power
company, Suber attempted to go be-
hind the house to shut the electricity
off and discovered that four propane
tanks were located near the back
door. The relief valve on two of the
tanks blew off, Suber explained.


5Jfan& 'You

We are homeless for the first time in our lives, but we thank the Lord
we still have a life! It is wonderful to see how God's hand is on us and
He gives us peace in times like this. He has sent many of you to take
care of our needs. Thank you so much for the food, clothing, money,
offering us a place to stay, offering to help in any way we need if we'll
just call. Thanks to Cathy Seay for coming our way, not knowing why,
but we know our Lord sent her to call 911 when our phones were out.
Thanks to Mary Gail McLeod for thinking to call about our medica-
tions and getting them for us. Thank you for your prayers! Thank you
to each one of the firemen who fought hard to save our home and the
EMS who kept a check on us. A big thank you to Daddy and Emily for
sharing their home with us. We lost a lot materially-home, car, every-
thindg in our home; but we did not'lose the imot important thing and
that is God! At times lik6 this you realize how unimportant material
things are and how important God Is. If we trust Him, accept Him and
live for Him, we'll be with Him forever, but these material things are
only for a short time.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Please continue to pray for us in the months ahead as you have in
the last 11 years.
We love you.

Camping, annual pass rates


increase at Hart Springs


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
approved a recommendation from
the Parks Superintendent to increase
camping rates and the cost of an an-
nual pass to Hart Springs. Julie Har-
rison reported that due to an increase
in operating costs at Hart Springs,
the monthly camping rates should be
increased to $275 a month. The av-
erage monthly electrical cost is now
$100, she reported.
The family pass was also pro-
posed to increase to $75 for five fam-
ily members. The board reduced the
family.pass rate increase from $100
to $75 to make enjoyment at the
springs more reasonable for Gilchrist
County families.
At the present time the monthly
camping fee at Hart Springs is $240.
The camping rate increase will go
into effect June 1, 2008. Gilchrist
County Finance Director Jackie John-
son reported that family pass permits
for Hart Springs in 2007 generated


$6,500. At that time the family pass
would allow a carload of six people
to enter the park. In 2007 the family
pass cost $50 and allowed a family
access to the park for the entire year.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion to approve the rec-
ommendation after much discussion
by the board. Commissioner Randy
Durden agreed and gave a second to
place the motion on the floor. Chair-
man Tommy Langford called for the
vote and the board approved the mo-
tion 4-0.
The board also approved the cut-
ting of three big oaks trees at the park
that are currently causing safety con-
cerns. The board approved Langston
Tree Service for $4800 to cut and re-
move the trees.


Firefighters arrived on scene and
hooked up lines to help put the fire
out, while firefighters Cliff Suber and
Everett Heaton went inside the home
through the front door. According to
Suber, fire had already engulfed the
dinning room, kitchen and garage at
that point.
In all 35 firefighters worked to
contain the fire to one-third of the
home. The fire, which required ev-
ery certified firefighter in Gilchrist
County, was under control within 20
minutes.
"I was very impressed with the
work the firefighters did considering
all the obstacles they faced," Perez
said.
According to Perez, electricity was
restored in- the neighborhood. within
40 minutes.


Bishop steps

down as Fair

Association

president


Mark Bishop


By Carrie A. Mizell
After four years as the Suwannee
River Fair Association president,
Mark Bishop submitted his letter of
resignation to Fair Director Darrell
Smith on the morning of the last day
of the 2008 fair.
"Everything has its time," Bishop
said last week. "I felt like it was just
time for me to go."
According to Fair Secretary Sheila
Langford, Bishop was elected presi-
dent of the association in October
2004. Prior to his election, Bishop
had served on the Board of Directors
as a Gilchrist County representative
for eight years and worked as a fair
volunteer for 22 years.
Bishop said the decision to resign
has weighed heavily on him since
one of his three daughters told him
after a past fair that she felt as if she
didn't even get to see him while at
the fair because he was too busy with
other obligations.
"I have to have time for my family
now," Bishop said.
Bishop and his wife of 20 years,
Christel, have three daughters Bri-
ana, 17, Brandalyn, 12, and Bethalyn,
7. Both Briana and Brandalyn show
steers at the fair each year and Betha-
lyn will as soon as she is old enough
to enter an animal. Though he will no
longer serve as fair president, Bishop
said he plans to continue helping out
while his daughters are participating.
During his school years, Bishop
said he not only showed two grand
champion hogs at the Suwannee
River Fair, but he also met his wife
Christel in'the fair barn.
"The kids have always been the
main focus of the fair," Bishop said.
"I just hope it continues being for the
children."
In his letter of resignation, Bishop
said he recommended Michelle Walk-
er-Crawford serve as his replace-
ment. Bishop said he feels Crawford
is right for the position after having
worked on the sales committee with
her for many years.
According to Darrell Smith, a board
meeting will be held on Monday and
at that time Smith and the other two
Gilchrist County representatives Ju-
lie Thomas and Earl Jones will ap-
point an individual to fill Bishop's
board seat.
"There has been some discussion,"
Smith said. "But nothing has been re-
solved yet."

An electrical fire consumed much

years on Thursday afternoon.

As a young man I grew up under the
watchful eye of parents that showed
me important things are worth tak-
ing a stand for. 1 believe the future of
Gilchrist County is in our hands. We
that love this community can take up
our convictions and work for what is
most beneficial for this rural county
and our future.
I believe we that live in Gilchrist
County all have an interest in our fu-
ture, and if the future is going to be
good, we must plan and prepare for
it.
It is like a farmer planning for an
upcoming crop. In the University of
Florida Master Gardener's class I
recently attended and enjoyed, our
instructor Anthony Drew brought out
the fine points of looking at the en-
tire perspective of what is involved
before you decide what you want to
plant and where is the best ground
you have to plant your crop.
If you just sow a few seeds in the
ground and water them, yes you will
probably have a few germinate and
come up, but unless you have a plan,
you are planning to fail.
Gilchrist County is standing at that
threshold, waiting to determine if the
county's plans for the future are what
is best for us, or are we planning to


fail.
I have a lot to be thankful for be-
cause I hold a great amount of respect
for the generations that came before
us. Many of our former elected lead-
ers would stand for what they be-
lieved was best for the entire county.
1 feel they didn't worry about being
re-elected in many cases, but doing
what was right for our future was
most important.
Gilchrist County is again standing
at that threshold; do we want lead-
ers that will plan for our future and
lead us into a bright tomorrow or do
we elect leaders that make their deci-
sions based on whether they will be
retained for another four years?
When I look at the financial situa-
tion involving Gilchrist County and
the State of Florida, I see the state
leaders are still haggling over rev-
enues. Gilchrist County Commission
is now playing a waiting game for the
legislature and the governor to final-
ize their budget. Gilchrist County's
plans will be determined by how
much revenue the county will receive
for their 2008-09 fiscal year.
The County Commission and
elected officials in general are facing
some tough decisions involving rev-
enue matters.


Now atd 7Ien

By Carrie A. Mizell


Every time Coach Tommy Malloy
would yell, "Red!" I would jump to
attention, terrified he would make me
get down on the filthy gym floor and
suffer through a set of push-ups or
sit-ups.
Bless his heart, Coach Malloy
took pity on my sorry athletic ability
during the middle school years and
therefore let me keep our class roll
sheet rather than embarrass myself
by publicly displaying my skills.
On rainy days when we couldn't
go outside to the track we would al-
ways play basketball in the new gym,
which is now the newest "old gym" at
Trenton. On those days the noise was
often overwhelming. The entire P.E.
class squeezed into the gym, scream-
ing and laughing teenagers and the
constant barn of bouncing basket-
balls on the wood floor. Despite it all,
Coach Malloy did not lose sight of us
even for a second (or lose his tem-
per). On those days several stragglers
would inevitably skip class and come
wandering into the gym walking all
cool as if they had fooled the world.
Without fail Coach Malloy would
bark "Red!'&and off I would run.
When I got to him, he would tell me
to sit down on the bleachers beside
him and point out the teenager evad-
ing the school resource officer. Then
Coach Malloy would tell me that if he
ever saw me dating that sorry son of a
gun he'd stop what he was doing and


beat me. Despite my assurances that
I would never let him down, Coach
Malloy kept me in his sights.
There were several times in high
school when I thought Coach Malloy
might kill me, though not because I
was with the wrong guy. During base-
ball season I was in charge of taking
up money at the Tiger baseball games.
As could be expected the 16-year-old
girl I was back then was easily dis-
tracted by the warming up baseball
team or friends stopping by to visit.
Sometimes I got so sidetracked that I
forgot to pay the umpires prior to the
game starting and from the dugout I
would hear a shrill cry, "Red! Pay at-
tention to what you're doing!" Noth-
ing could get your attention like be-
ing hollered at by Coach Malloy and
I knew he liked me. I can't imagine
what those people he didn't like must
have felt like when he barked.
There were hundreds of teenagers
who wandered in and out of Coach
Malloy's P.E. class during his many
years at Trenton High School. I can't
even begin to guess the number of
teenagers he took up extra time with
because he could tell they didn't get
much at home, or like me they were
just athletically challenged, but had
a willingness to please. I am certain
that Coach Malloy has made a dif-
ference in a great many lives. I can
also say with certainty that I was his
favorite student!

Living in the Spirit means to walk in the Spirit as the
fleshly lusts are crucified with "its passions and desires"
(Galatians 5:24,25).
The New American Standard Version uses the phrase
"deeds of the flesh." The works of the flesh speak to a
manner of life or ones conduct or deeds. These are
continual sins or habitual transgressions that prohibit one
from being a part of the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:21).
From sensual sins to transgressions against God and
offenses toward man and self; Paul declares the blueprint
of folly that has led the majority of humanity into moral
putridity. Written across the headlines of newspapers and


that war against the soul. "For though we walk in the
flesh, we do not war according to the flesh, for the
weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely
powerful for the destruction of fortresses" (2 Corinthians
10:3,4). The mighty towers of lusts must be pulled down
from our lives. The works of the flesh must be crucified,
killed, destroyed removed from our lives "so as to live
the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for the lusts of
men, but for the will of God" (I Peter 4:2).
The deeds of the flesh must be refreshed by the fruit of
the Spirit (Galatians 5:22,23). Through the grace of God's
love we can conquer the flesh.

Sometimes being in the newspaper
business is no fun at all. In fact from
time to time we have to type up an
obit of a treasured friend or publish
an article disclosing the names of
local young people who have been
arrested because they have been in-
volved with drug use. But the fact is,
news is our business, and even when
the news saddens us we still have to
print it.
Last week I found myself with
camera in hand heading to a house
fire. When I arrived and discovered
that it was the home of Wilbur and
Betty Bush I was heart broken for
them. John, our children and I feel
that Mr. Wilbur and Mrs. Betty are
two of the finest people on earth.
Last Thursday afternoon I spoke
briefly with Mrs. Betty just after her
home had been destroyed by fire. Mrs.
Betty told me how blessed her family
was to live in Trenton where so many
people care about them. She was also
very thankful that no one was hurt in
the fire. I could not believe she was
so gracious and thankful just after
seeing her home destroyed by fire.
But you know, I should have
known how Mr. Wilbur and Mrs.
Betty would have responded to such
a tragic event in their long lives as
husband and wife. On Sunday morn-
ing I heard Mr. Wilbur tell our church
family at FBC in Trenton how much
he and Betty appreciated the many
acts of kindness shown to Betty and
himself after their home was burned.
He went on to ask everyone for their
continued prayers.
After leaving the fire and driving
back to the Journal on Thursday I
wondered how such a tragic thing
could happen to two of the best peo-
ple I know.
For many, many years I have at-
tended church with the Bushs and
watched them time and again come
through not only for their much loved
family but for our entire church fam-
ily when times were bad.
Mr. Wilbur has served as a deacon
for as long as I can remember and he
. has always held a pivotal leadership
role in our church. When Mr. Wilbur
spoke we all knew to listen because
his wisdom seems unending. Mrs.
Betty has been a role model to me
and many of our friends as she has
demonstrated such love and caring
for her family. What a witness they
have both been as they have lived
their lives so unselfishly.
Mr. Wilbur not only ran a business
in Trenton, the Farm Service Store,
for many years but he served the
county as a County Commissioner for
several terms, he has been a member
of Rotary and the Chamber of Com-
merce also. Mrs. Betty has always
stood at his side lending a helping
an anti-psychotic medication, was
denied approval. Wyeth also lost out
on a preliminary injunction to pre-
vent Teva Pharmaceuticals from re-
leasing a generic version of Protonix.
Protonix is worth about $1.9 billion
in annual sales to Wyeth.
That was the bad news. Now for
the good news; Wyeth enjoys $22 bil-
lion in sales and has a strong balance
sheet. Last year its gross margin was
about 72 percent and it earned about
20 cents net profit after taxes on ev-
ery dollar of sales. Furthermore, de-
spite its setbacks the company has a
strong pharmaceutical offering and a
promising pipeline of new offerings.
This is the key to Wyeth's future.


AND CARRYING' ON

hand as he has served the community
in many different ways.
I am very sorry and sad just as
many of you are that the Bushs have
lost their home. But I feel they are
so solid that they will pick up the
pieces and pull their lives together
once again, marching forward with
the help of their beloved family, good
friends and the Lord, Mr. Wilbur and
Mrs. Betty will be just fine.

This week's recipe is soooo good. I
first sampled it at the Lupus Benefit
this past year down at Otter Springs.
Now if you make it just try a small
piece at first because it is some kind
of rich.....in my book rich is GOOD!
This is another of Selma's special
recipes.

For example, Wyeth is currently
conducting phase III trials under a
fast track approval from the FDA of
AAB-001, a monoclonal antibody
named bapineuzumab for combating
Alzheimer's. The 4,100 participants
make it the largest Alzheimer's trial
ever. The company also has 10 other
drugs to combat Alzheimer's under
development.
Understand that Wyeth has been
out of favor on Wall Street. Yet, that
could be changing. According to an
article in Barron's, two analysts were
quoted as valuing Wyeth's assets,
such as its biologics and vaccines,

From The
Shelves Of
The Bell
Library
While I was carding books for the
library I found two books that were
different. Linda Lael Miller usu-
ally writes a romantic novel but her
"Don't Look Now" is so very differ-
ent. It has romance but it seems that
every time the heroine turns around
there is another dead body. First it
was her boss, next a young woman
was murdered in her car. Then her
new boss was at her desk when she
was shot. She wonders if the killer is
looking for her. Read it to find who
the killer is and why.
I found a beginning reader, "What
Do Sharks Eat For Dinner?" Do you
know? I don't but I am going to find
out.

eos, DVDs and books on tape.

4-Pets Sake news
Recently we had to start a spay-
neuter waiting list for pets. Our
funding was low and we didn't have
many options. Since that time peo-
ple have donated aluminum cans,
ink jet cartridges, cash, checks, and
merchandise for some fund raisers
and we also received a check from
Petco after applying for a mini grant.
Heartfelt thanks to everyone who has
helped 4-Pets Sake in the past and the
present.
We do collect aluminum cans
only. If a magnet falls off a can it is
aluminum; however, if it sticks to a
can then it is steel. Scaffs, Jiffy, and
Bells and Whistle storage, all located
in Bell, have containers to deposit
cans and we will also pick up.

not damaged, are another source for

A shared passion for dogs and
creativity inspired friends Anne
Zubler and Felice Swalla to begin
creating custom gift baskets.
According to Zubler, baskets
are made to order and range from
the predictable birthday, anniver-
sary and bridal baskets to gour-
met foods, quilting and sushi bas-
kets. Prices also vary from $25 to
$5,000. Baskets contain a unique
array of items.
Children's baskets may have silly
string included while Florida gator
baskets boast a large chocolate al-
ligator made by Ms. Debbie.
Southern Nostalgia offers baskets
for all occasions.
"For this area our baskets are


raising funds. Perhaps your company
or peers would allow us to put a con-
tainer on the counter to collect car-
tridges.
One more request please. If you
use Purina dry dog or cat food could
you save us the weight cirdles? '" "',


way above," Swalla said.
Two or three days each week
are dedicated to making the bas-
kets, Zubler explained. The duo,
who said they are more like sisters
than best friends, hope to include
gift certificates to Seventh Heaven
Day Spa & Salon in their spa bas-
kets and gift certificates to the Su-
wannee Valley Quilt Shoppe in the
quilter's baskets.
"In this area our junk food bas-
kets will probably be the most pop-
ular," Zubler said. "Our spa baskets
should also be popular because ev-
eryone loves a little pampering!"

Arbor Day Program
On Tuesday, April 15th, Trenton
Elementary School helped make a
statement about preserving our en-
vironment and future by holding a
tree-planting ceremony in conjunc-
tion with National Arbor Day, April
25, 2008.
Arbor Day is an annual observance
that celebrates the role of trees in our
lives and promotes tree planting and
care. As a formal holiday, it was first
observed in 1872, but tree planting
festivals are as old as civilization.
The tree has appeared throughout
history and literature as the symbol
of life.


The idea for Arbor Day in the
United States originated in Nebraska
City, Nebraska, by Julius Sterling
Morton. As the editor of Nebraska's
first newspaper, he spread agricul-
tural information and his enthusiasm
for trees to a receptive audience. In
1872, the State Board of Agriculture
declared April 10 a day to set aside
to plant trees. More than one million
trees were planted in Nebraska on the
first Arbor Day.
Most holidays celebrate some-
thing that has already happened and
is worth remembering like the day
someone was born or a religious
holiday celebrating a past event. Ar-

bor Day reflects a hope for the future.
The trees planted on Arbor Day show
a concern for future generations. The
simple act of planting a tree repre-
sents a belief that their tree will grow
and some day provide wood prod-
ucts, wildlife habitat, erosion control,
shelter from wind and sun, beauty,
and inspiration for ourselves and our
children.
For many years, Arbor Day was
celebrated on April 22, J. Sterling
Morton's birthday. Today, Nation-
al Arbor Day is celebrated on the
last Friday in April. All fifty states,
Puerto Rico and some U. S. territo-
ries have passed legislation adopting
Arbor Day which is celebrated on a
date appropriate for tree planting in
their region.
More than 100 TES 4th grade stu-
dents celebrated Florida Trees by
participating in the annual event. The
Florida Nursery Growers and Land-
scape Association (FNGLA) pro-
vided schools around the state with a
free tree for the ceremony along with
educational guidelines for classroom
activities and ceremony planting.
The ceremony included the Pledge of
Allegiance, a history of Arbor Day, a
poem about trees, planting of the tree,
reading of a book about trees and a
nature walk. The fourth grade would
like to thank Blooming House Nurs-
ery for donating the tree for the cer-


emony. We would also like to thank
Ms. Lynsey Grant for organizing the
ceremony and Ms. Linda Hof and the
students who presented information
during the event.

The End of Reqular Season Play...


Trenton Tiger baseball players honored on Senior Night were: Colby Perryman, Jeffery Delong, Billy Ow-
ens, Andy Jones, and Kyle Feather. Photo by Anna Wild of Freeze Frame Photography.


by Brandon McElroy
It was the last week of regular sea-
son play and the Tigers wanted to
enter the District Tournament with
momentum and confidence. All the
teams the Tigers faced this week had
previously beat them this season, but
the Tigers came into these last three
games with one big advantage...
home field; the last three games
would be played in the Jungle.
The Tigers came out on Tuesday
night with a grudge. They knew deep


down that Newberry should not have
beat them in the previous match-up.
They came out swinging their bats
with a practically perfect ratio of 11
runs on 12 hits. The game went back
and forth between the two; it was al-
most as if they were~saying any thing
you can do, I can do better. In the first
inning, Newberry scored first with 2
runs but the Tigers came right back
answering the Panthers cry with 2
runs of their own. The same thing
happened in the 2nd, the Panthers
scored 4 runs and the Tigers came


back with 4 to even up the score.
This happened all the way through
the fourth inning until the Tigers
buckled down and took control of
the game in the 5th inning. The game
was tied at 10 in the bottom of the 7th
and the Tigers had one last chance to
end this thing without going into ex-
tra innings. With the bases loaded,
Justin Alvarez slowly yet confidently
approached the plate. The first pitch
thrown to him he nailed over into
left field, which would bring in the
game winning run. CJ Bowers com-
menced the attack in the first inning
with a two-run homerun he smashed
over the right field fence. Bowers
was also a triple shy from having the
cycle (HR, single, double, and triple).
The Tigers really got hyped over this
one and used the emotion to put the
Panthers back in the den. Jeff Delong
was really on top of his game as the
designated hitter went 3 for 4 and
scored 2 runs. The final score for this
one was your Trenton Tigers 11 and
the Newberry Panthers 10.
For the second game this week, the
PK Blue Wave came to seeking an-
other win against the Tigers whereas
the Tigers wanted to WAVE them on
with a loss. The 1st inning started out
much like e against Newber-
ry. PK scored 2 and the Tigers scored
3. PK came, back in the 2nd and put
up 6 more runs sucking the life out of
the Tigers. The Tigers really struggled
from there and couldn't seem to put
anything together to be able to come
back and win. This would turn out to
be a very high scoring game with the
final score your Trenton Tigers 10
and PK Yonge 18. The Tigers didn't
play bad in this game, but 5 errors
kept them from coming out victori-
ous; the Tigers also had 10 runs on 9
hits, but just couldn't pull it off. Once
again, CJ Bowers smashed a two-run
homerun over the center field fence
(probably a 400 yarder). He also led
the way in batting average hitting a
.667 % with 2 RBIs. Kyle Feather
also played a good game as he hit
.500.
The last home game of the sea-
son was played last Thursday night
against the long time rival, the
Chiefland Indians. Pre-game festivi-
ties honored all the seniors for their

From the Superintendent's Desk...


The FCAT has come and gone and
our students and teachers have taken
a well deserved break during Fair
Week. According to our principals,
testing went smoothly and our stu-
dents concentrated and worked hard.
Parents, we appreciate your help in
supporting your children during this
annual test. Support, high expecta-
tions, and encouragement from home
are vital to all of our students for
them to be academically successful.
We will have FCAT results in a few
weeks. In the meantime our teach-
ers and students are back hitting the
books and computers.
Our teachers and support staff
are a terrific group and many put in
extra hours and go out of their way
to support our students. This group
also spends many hours in learning
enhanced teaching skills and how to
use new technology in facilitating
"Quadrant D" lessons and "21st Cen-
tury" skills. Please take a moment
and thank this group for the great
job they do with your children. They
care and they show it every day.
All across Florida cities and coun-
ties are experiencing plummeting
sales of real estate and homes. This
in turn has decreased the flow of
tax dollars into state coffers from a
flood to a trickle and forced school
districts, including Gilchrist, to cut
large chunks of dollars out of their
budgets. This financial downturn has
forced cities and counties to look for
ways to diversify local economies
and create a more stable job base.
Jacksonville, already one of the
nation's premier seaports, is enlarg-
ing its harbor in hopes of snaring
even more of the world's shipping.
Miami is working hard to strengthen
ties with Central and South America
to become an even more important
trade partner. Alachua County and
Gainesville are optimistic that Shands
Hospital and the University of Flori-
da will spur spin-off businesses that
will make use of the growing num-
ber of life-science and technology
labs available. Elsewhere in Florida,
there are attempts to attract high-tech
computer-related companies, bio-
science labs, nanotechnology firms,
life science industries, manufactur-
commitment and on a job well done
this season. Also, the Diamond Club
honored Coach Tommy *Malloy for
all he has done for the Trenton sports
program by naming the new batting
facility "Tommy Malloy Batting Fa-
cility". After all this was over with,
the Tigers flipped that switch and
came ready to work. The stands were
full and the fence was lined with both
Trenton and Chiefland alumni and
fans. The Indians struck first in the
2nd and held that lead until the 5th
inning when they tacked on 3 more
runs. In the bottom of the 6th it really
hit the Tigers that this was the last
6th inning stretch of regular season
play. Starting the rally for the Tigers
was senior leader Billy Owens as he
took one for the team and was hit by
a pitch. This was just as good as a hit,
because the Tigers needed base run-
ners. Jones drew a walk next at bat
and with runners at first and second,
CJ Bowers approached the plate. He
drove in Owens, but hit the ball to
second who had a force out on Jones;
so 2 outs, 1 run closer and a man on
first. Next to bat was Mr. Clutch,
Karson Gilbert. Karson induced the
walk and later would score the Ti-
gers last run of the regular season.
The Tigers once again fell short by
one run, losing on senior night in the
Jungle against Chiefland. Andy Jones
pitched a great game with 12 strike-
outs but could not seem to find the
umps extremely tight strike zone with
8 walks. Errors were a huge factor in
this game and throughout this week
as they had 3 in this game alone, 12
all together this week. This closes
another chapter in the Trenton Tiger
baseball book, leaving the Tigers 13-
11 overall and 7-5 in the.District.

ing firms, automotive firms, medi-
cal product firms, and information
technology businesses. All of these
require special skills and are high-
wage industries.
Back in the 1980s, the local Cham-
ber of Commerce formulated a vi-
sion for Gilchrist County that fore-
saw this area developing as a tourist
spot, a medical mecca, -and a bed-
room community for Gainesville. It
has become a bed-room community
for Gainesville as about 40% of our
people travel to Gainesville daily to
work. It would appear that the medi-
cal community will be centered on
the new hospital in Chiefland and
that the tourist attraction of the Su-
wannee and Santa Fe Rivers has not
yet been fully developed. What has
happened is that as our farm indus-
try decreased, our land has been cut
up into subdivisions and home sites
waiting for buyers. This school year,
districts across Florida lost students
as families slowed in relocating to
Florida due to the high cost of home
insurance, the uncertainty of our
property tax situation, and hurri-
canes. Gilchrist lost about 22 stu-
dents. However, the population of
our county continued to increase and
it would appear that more retired per-
sons are locating here.
Gilchrist County's population is
currently over 17,000, and has had
an annual growth rate of 2.7% over
the last five years. According to the
State of Florida, our growth will con-
tinue to be better than 20,000 people
by the year 2015. The average annual
wage earned in Gilchrist is $27,231,
while the average annual wage for all
of Florida is $38,454. Manufacturing
jobs provide an annual average salary
of $43,732 for about 400,000 Florid-
ians. About 14% of our population
is considered to be living below the
poverty level and about 72% of our
residents are high school gradu-
ates. However, only about 9% of our
population has a bachelor's degree or
higher. Service jobs are held by about
32% of our population, while about
22% are employed in the government
sector and 15% in the farming in-
dustry. However, the most powerful
statistic is that the average per hour


wage for
Gilchrist '1 _Im -
County is -
$13.00 per U
hour. .
Now why
is any of
this impor-
tant to those of us who live here or
to those who would like to live, work
or locate a business in our county?
How does this concern our gradu-
ates who would like to return home
and be employed in a high wage job?
Is Gilchrist's future to be a bedroom
community to Gainesville and a ha-
ven for retirees? Are the graduates
who remain here going to be tied to
working in Gainesville?
Maybe it's time that we take a
second look at a vision for Gilchrist
County. Change and growth will
come to Gilchrist. We can seek to
direct and control this growth or it.
will roll right over us. Perhaps it's
time for the three City Commissions,
the County Commission, the School
Board, and all interested stakeholders
to have a serious dialogue on what
direction Gilchrist will take. Items
up for discussion should include in-
frastructure such as sewer, water, and
transportation routes. Our Compre-
hensive Land Plan should be reviewed
and updated and sites for industrial
development discussed. Ideas should
be discussed for strengthening eco-
nomic ties with Alachua and Colum-
bia Counties and enticing employers
to consider Gilchrist for company
operations. There are companies
who don't need super-highways to
operate, but do need land, buildings,
a trained work force, and economic
incentives. We must search for a bal-
ance between Gilchrist's past and an
opportunity-filled future.
Is Gilchrist ready for this discus-
sion? I think it is. With all the eco-
nomic development going on in the
counties around us, it is time to chart
our economic future. Will it be easy?
No. Will it be messy and contro-
versial? Probably. But that is what
change and democracy are all about.
Now, how do we get a dialogue
started?

BES Aq LiteracY Day _____


Ag Literacy Day at Bell Elementary School.


Mrs. Rolling's students enjoyed the
Ag Literacy Day at Bell Elementary
School on Thursday, April 10.


Jr. and Sr. students along with Jef-
frey Williams our Area 2 State FFA
Vice President, read "Those Florida


Farms" to at least 20 classrooms.
While in these classrooms they
answered questions about farming
and FFA, passed out bookmarks, ta-
toos, and other educational materials
that came from Ag in the Classroom.
They also demonstrated their open-
ing and closing ceremonies.
Thank you again to the Jr. mem-
bers: Kristen Dennis, Harry Martin,
Olivia Roberts, Alec Rolling, and
Talon Rolling and Sr. members: Joy
Nazworth and Juliee Nobs, also Jef-
frey Williams, advisors Bill Martin
and Debbie Jones.

Cattlemen's President Jim Jones in back row.

Cattlenmen's Banquet held


(Continued from page 1)
He added, "I think it is nice to be rec-
ognized as Cattleman of the Year in
Gilchrist County."
The Jones also have grown pea-
nuts, hay and corn on their farm as
well as sugar cane. In fact Mr. Jones
is known for his syrup making skills
and every fall he fires up his kettle
and turns out many bottles of fine
cane syrup.
The Gilchrist County Cattlemen's
.Association President Jim Jones said
that he was pleased that the cattlemen
were able to give a small check to all
the Cattlemen member's children
who showed cattle in the Suwan-
nee River Fair each year. Each year
the local cattlemen select the best
Gilchrist-grown fat steer and feeder
steer.
County Extension Agent Marvin
Weaver said, "This year's fat steer
contest was tough, as it seems the
judge liked a particular steer but car-
cass data and weight gain showed
that it would not be a money maker
on the farm." Mr. Weaver went on to
say that the steer that was selected
was judged 3rd in its class with a
blue ribbon. The steer weighed 1315
pounds and had an average daily gain
of 4.13. The carcass data showed a
.3 fat thickness, rib eye area of 13.7,
marbling was SL plus and graded SE
plus with a yield grade of 2.6.
The young lady that fed and cared
for this steer was Raychel Thomas


Ray Thomas of L. R. Thomas Farms shown with his granddaughter
Raychel Thomas and Association President Jim Jones. Raychel's fat
steer was selected as the Best Home Grown Fat Steer.

French group enjoys 'marvelous hospitality'


By Carrie A. Mizell
A warm welcome and hearty hugs
from a group of Floridians was not
the reception five French visitors ex-
pected upon their arrival in America
as part of the Rotary Foundation's
Group Study Exchange Program.
"You don't get an understanding
for Americans if you're just traveling
here for business or pleasure," Jean
Pierre Vanderstricht, group leader
said.
"I've been to America several
times, but this is the first time I have
gotten to talk with people and see
how you really live."
Vanderstricht told Trenton Rotar-
ians on Monday that after spending
several weeks with his four traveling
companions, who range from 25 to
40 years old and are all in the early
stages of their careers, he feels as if
he has a new family.
Gaelle Picaut, Rodolphe Oikneine,
Julie Vieilledent and Alexandre Her-
rera traveled with Vanderstricht from
their homes in the south of France to
America to immerse themselves in
four to six weeks of culture while
developing personal and professional
relationships with Americans.
While in the United States, group
members will also have the opportu-
nity to observe how their vocations
are practiced in America. From a front
office assistant to a web marketing
manager for a four star hotel, the four
group members, who are non-Rotari-
ans, brought a plethora of knowledge
and background to the trip.
Each year the Rotary Foundation
program provides travel grants for
teams to exchange visits in paired ar-
eas of different countries.
Thomas Cannon of Bell is currently

Trenton Rotarians welcomed (from left to right) Monticello Rotary Club President James Muchovej, Julie
Vieilledent of southern France, Shannon Smith who introduced the program, Alexandre Herrera of south-
ern France, Jean Pierre Vanderstricht group leader, Rodolphe Oiknine of southern France, Gaelle Picaut of
southern France and Charlie Smith acting Trenton Rotary Club president.


a member of the United States team
representing District 6940 abroad.
According to Vanderstricht who
has been a Rotarian for eight years,
southeast France is home to the cit-
ies of Monte Carlo, Cannes and Nice.
The region lies between the seashore
and mountains and boasts 300 sunny
days each year.
"Southeast France borders the
Mediterranean Sea and is within a


one hour drive of the mountains,"
Vieilledent said.
Members of the group each de-
scribed a different facet of life in the
south of France to Trenton Rotarians
including travel, lodging, local artist-
sans, traditional dishes such as pan
bagnat and olive oil, celebrations like
the International Film Festival, na-
tional parks, economic resources and
military infrastructures.


Following the group's presenta-
tion, Trenton Rotarian Doug Beach
said he could attest to the country's
beauty having served in the United
States Navy anchored off the coast of
Nice and Cannes in 1952.
"You are all welcome in France,"
Vieilledent said. "You will be well-
received by the French! Don't be
afraid of what other people think,
make your own opinion."

By Carrie A. Mizell

tered democrat, Lancaster plans to

tions Connie Sanchez, as of Friday

Character Council's

Personality of the Month


As we continue on our road to bet-
ter understanding of what good, posi-
tive character is all about, we come
to another "yield sign" in the road,
that of another quality; that of per-
suasiveness. Persuasiveness is shar-
ing in a way others can understand,
by identifying what mental road-
blocks stand in the way, by guiding
the missing information around the
obstacle so that truth can be seen and,
most of all, persuasiveness is silence.
It isn't arguing and badgering until
the other side concedes. It is peace-
fully and quietly recognizing that
every person is responsible for his
or her own decisions. Persuasiveness
explains the truth, but it cannot force
others to embrace it. Persuasiveness
looks for the most effective way to
communicate a message. It presents
"the bigger picture." Good, effec-
tive persuasiveness presents benefits
of a proposal, shows how changes
correct past mistakes, and points out
how a particular change promotes the
personal goal of those who will be
affected by the change. Persuasive-
ness never manipulates people into
submitting to someone else's will.
It does. not force them into a comer
or threaten them into compliance. It
simple exposes people to truth they
couldn't otherwise see before.
For the month of April a young
man by the name of Orie Sheppard,
relinquished his time for an inter-
view; Orie is originally from Gilchrist
County. He is a senior at Bell High
School, and is active as an officer in
HOSA. For 1 1/2 years he held the
position of yearbook editor and be-
sides his high school studies, he also
works part-time at Walgreen's Phar-
macy, as well. His favorite subjects
are English and History, and while in
college he plans to major in Public
Relations with a minor in Marketing.


One Sheppard
Orie likes to help other people by
sharing his opinion. He finds plea-
sure in steering them in the right di-
rection, and for their own benefit. He
believes that if a person's voice is not
heard, change will not come about.
One of his greatest desires is to per-
suade friends and co-workers, who
on their own, would otherwise not
make any attempts to improve them-
selves. He communicates to them the
necessity of attending a community
college and earning an AA degree.
His belief is that an AA degree is the
"new" high school diploma of the
21st century and that people need at
least that level of a college degree to
make something of themselves in the
world in which we live.
This author was quite taken with
this articulate young man, who knows
where he's going, and through per-
suasiveness, will certainly get there.
Once again, we are seeing that posi-
tive character certainly determines
success, and we have young, people
in our country who truly are moving
towards success.


Robert B. Clemons will seek re-elec- to the School Board District 4 posi-
tion. Raymond D. 'Ray' Hutchinson tion, which will be vacated by Lois
is also seeking election to the School Fletcher at the end of her term.
Board District 2 seat. For more information on Election
Julie C. Thomas will seek election 2008, call 463-3194.
