Paramedic charged with 81 counts of tampering with narcotics


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Gilchrist County paramedic
is being held at the county jail on
$810,000 bond after being arrested
last Thursday and charged with 81
felony counts of tampering with nar-
cotics.
Matthew J. Davis, 25, of Old Town
was arrested at the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office following a detailed
investigation into allegations that 81


vials of Morphine stored inside an
ambulance had been tampered with.
According to Sheriff David Turn-
er, the Morphine, which is kept un-
der lock and key inside the Gilchrist
County EMS stations and on ambu-
lances, is intended for use on patients
in need of pain relieving drugs.
The case began on May 6 when
Gilchrist County Emergency Servic-
es paramedic James Campbell was


restocking supplies in an ambulance
and noticed there were pin marks on
the tamper-proof seal on numerous
Morphine vials. The Gilchrist Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office called in the State
Attorney's Office to help with the
investigation. Captain Tony Cruse of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office
said the investigation revealed that
saline was injected into the vials to
replace thb Morphine that was re-


moved.
The motive for tampering with
the Morphine was apparently per-
sonal use, not resale, Cruse said. An
internal investigation currently be-
ing conducted by Gilchrist County
Public Safety Director Carlos Perez
will determine if any patients were
unkndwingly given saline rather than
Morphine by paramedics. The inter-
nal investigation should be complete


this week, McQueen said. Findings
from the internal investigation could
prompt Gilchrist County to change
its procedures on narcotic handling.
Davis was hired by Gilchrist Coun-
ty Emergency Medical Services as an
emergency medical technician in Au-
gust 2002. According to McQueen,
Davis' employment as a paramedic
was terminated on the day of his ar-
rest due to willful misconduct.

Tears streamed down the faces of
Margaret Lombi and Karen Latham
as they shared an embrace and a mu-
tual sadness having both lost their
sons, Marines, who were killed in ac-
tion in Iraq.
Accompanied by her husband
James, Margaret Lombi of Branford
accepted a plaque from the Gilchrist
County Historical Society in honor
of her son, Pfc. Christopher Riviere
who was killed in Iraq on Sept. 26,
2006.
Riviere was not the only fallen
soldier honored Monday morning
by citizens of Gilchrist County who
gathered in the courthouse square
to pay tribute to soldiers who have
fought and died in service to the
United States. The ninth annual Me-
morial Day tribute, hosted by the
Gilchrist County Historical Society,
began with an introduction by Dan
Taylor, master of ceremonies.
"It's always good to see an expres-
sion of patriotism," Taylor told the
crowd of red, white and blue clad
citizens. "I hope you will continue to
pray for the condition of this coun-.
try."
Following an invocation by Jose
Cintron of American Legion Post 91,
the Bell High School Junior Reserve
Officer Training Corps presented the
colors as the Star Spangled Banner
played. The pledge of allegiance fol-
lowed, led by Gilchrist County Vet-
erans Service Officer Major Stroupe.

Cedar Key man killed

Saturday on CR 345


By John M. Ayers
The fog was as thick as a blanket
Saturday morning when a Cedar key
man was reported to have been lying
partially in the southbound lane of
CR 345 south of Chiefland before he
was struck and killed by a Chiefland
man that was traveling south in the
poor visibility conditions.
Terry Ray Cole, 46, of Cedar Key
was killed when he was run over by a
1998 Dodge Caravan driven by Guy
Austin Eads of Chiefland. Florida
Highway Patrol reported the Cedar
Key man's upper body was laying
across the white painted line on the
west border of the southbound lane.
Cole's legs and other portions of his
body were lying on the edge of the
shoulder in the grass before the acci-
dent occurred. Eads reported that he


did not see the man lying on the edge
of the road. Upon impact the driver
applied brakes and skidded to a stop
facing in a southwesterly direction
with a portion of the vehicle on the
shoulder of the highway. Mr. Cole
was turned around and came to a final
rest facing southwest in the south-
bound lane and on the shoulder of the
highway. Levy County Emergency
Medical Services was dispatched to
the scene and pronounced the pedes-
trian deceased on location. Charges
in this accident are pending a final
investigation. Trooper C.K. Harris is
investigating this accident. The Flor-
ida Highway Patrol and Levy County
Sheriff Deputies closed that portion
of CR 345 for 2 hours before daylight
to investigate the accident and clean
up the scene.

By Carrie A. Mizell
Experts predict that 15 tropical
storms and four major hurricanes will
form in the Atlantic Ocean during the
2008 hurricane season, which will
officially begin on Sunday and run
through November 30.
According to Gilchrist County
Emergency Management Chief Ron
Mills, hurricane preparation mea-
sures are already being taken within
the county to prepare for what has
been deemed "a well above average
2008 hurricane season."
"The El Nifio pattern shows one in
our area this year," Mills said. "I'm
worried about people's complacency
since we've gone two years without
a storm."
The emergency management chief
said he does not want to sound like
Dr. Doom, but it is his job to make
preparations and maintain the attitude
of not if the hurricane hits, but when.
Mills joined other emergency man-
agement officials from throughout
the state, nationally recognized fore-
casters, and various state officials in
Fort Lauderdale on May 12-16 for
the 22nd Annual Governor's Hurri-
cane Conference.
While at the conference, Mills
heard predictions by Dr. William
Gray, professor with the department
of atmospheric science, and Philip
Klotzback, research associate, both
from Colorado State University. Dur-
ing his speech, Gray said that one of
the four major hurricanes predicted
for 2008 has a good chance of hit-
ting the United States. There is a 70
percent chance that a major hurricane
will make landfall somewhere along
the east coast in 2008, Gray said.
Hurricane names for 2008 are:
Arthur, Bertha, Cristobal, Dolly, Ed-
ouard, Fay, Gustav, Hanna, Ike, Jo-
sephine, Kyle, Laura, Marco, Nana,
Omar, Paloma, Rene, Sally, Teddy,
Vicky and Wilfred.
In the event of a hurricane threat-
ening the Gulf Coast region, Gilchrist
County officials would likely open its
three hurricane shelter sites: Trenton
Elementary School and Bell Elemen-
tary School as well as a special needs
shelter at Bell Health Academy. Billy
Smith Watermelons on SR 47 in
Trenton is also equipped to serve as
a supply distribution center again this
year, according to Mills, who also
explained that debris contracts are in
place should a hurricane hit the area
leading massive amounts of debris.
On June 3, Gilchrist County emer-
gency management officials will.hold
their annual meeting at the Gilchrist


County Sheriff's Office and also take
part in the 2008 Florida statewide
hurricane exercise.
Utilizing a Code Red System,
Mills explained that he can send out
a telephone warning that would dial
out to nearly 8,000 phone numbers
within the county notifying residents
of possible emergency situations or
critical community alerts. Residents
who are unsure if their phone number
is on the call list should visit Gilchrist
County's website at http://gilchrist.
fl.us and click on the Code Red tab
to fill out appropriate information.
Examples of possible notifications
include: evacuation notices, missing
child reports, bio-terrorism alerts and
boil water notices. Residents without
Internet access can contact Gilchrist
County Emergency Management at
463-3134 to register their name and
phone number. Also residents with
special needs who may need trans-
portation or further assistance in the
event of an emergency should reg-
ister their name, address and phone
number with Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Management.
According to Mills, Gilchrist
County's new fuel depot with a ca-
pacity of 10,000 gallons of gasoline
and 10,000 gallons of diesel will aid
the county in the event of a hurri-
cane.
Should a hurricane devastate Gil-
christ County, Mills said the county
will have to be able to operate on its
own for a minimal 72 hours before
state or federal aid will be available.
"The state has decided that ice is
not needed, but we will have water
and food," Mills said.
Residents are encouraged to visit
www.floridadisaster.org to establish
a family plan in the event of a hur-
ricane.

Letter to the Editor
(. H)


I am writing to express my feel-
ings about a very special person. This
person always shows up for work on
time. Never complains, even when
the weather is bad.
I remember last year when we had
the fires from Georgia, this person
stood out in this smoke and kept the
traffic moving and our children safe.
Mrs. Clyda-Mae Hilliard is truly a
saint when it comes to providing a
safe environment for our children
and keeping the traffic moving in the
morning in Bell.


Mrs. Hilliard is our crossing guard
as many of you are aware. What ever
salary she is paid at this point, is not
enough and she deserves a raise in
my opinion for a job above and be-
yond the call of duty.
We have some very talented and
caring teachers, staff and administra-
tion in Bell. I am happy to see Mrs.
Hilliard as a part of our team. Tell her
thank you the next time you see her,
she deserves it.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


Memorial Day weekend has come
and gone once again. For many it was
simply an extra day off work and a
time to drag out the barbeque grill
for the season's first summer party.
For others it is a somber reminder of
friends who sacrificed their lives in
the name of freedom.
Unfortunately, the devastating im-
pact of armed conflicts has a way of
fading from memory. Few are left
who can recount the untold horrors of
the Holocaust. A younger but graying
generation pushes remembrances of
the sickening sweet smell of Napalm
and burning flesh ever deeper into the
dark recesses of the mind.
Yet, the jarring impact of seeing
young soldiers with scared faces and
missing limbs not only unleashes a
gushing torrent of emotion, but acts
as a constant reminder of the seem-
ingly never ending violence and
bloodshed that takes place across the
globe in the name of security, peace
and tranquility.
If you saw Vietnam, Afghanistan
or Iraq regurgitate the remains of
your friends and classmates, Memo-
rial Day cannot help but be a day of
particular significance.,Yet, for all of
us, it should be a time to remember
and honor those who have been called
upon to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Now I am sure you are asking your-
self how those comments relate to in-
vesting on Wall Street. They do not...
except to point out that we must oc-
casionally turn our focus away from
what we can get and instead concen-
trate on what we can give back.
Traditionally, this is also the time of
the year when I discuss the .subject of
when and what to sell. For example,
simply holding unrealized profits is
never a reason to sell. Unfortunately,
the issue of when to. sell is too often
treated in erroneously general terms
such as, "the market is too high, sell,"
or "the market is going down, sell."
Deciding when to sell is the single
most difficult decision any investor
has to make. Moreover, I would be
the first to agree that it often takes su-
per human strength to decide the mat-
ter dispassionately. Any time a stock
you hold plummets in price there is
an accompanying icy panic brought
on by the thought of not only your
profits evaporating, but also your
original capital.
Given the recent Memorial Day
weekend, I would suggest you once
again contemplate the words penned
over a century ago by Catherine
Lee Bates in the song, "America the


The Works Of The Flesh: Murder - Real And Imagined
(Kent Heaton)


[The word "murder" is omitted from several
manuscripts. - keh]
The blood of Abel (Genesis 4) still cries through the
ages of centuries as a sad reminder of man's inhumanity
to man. The early world was destroyed because "every
intent of the thoughts of [man] was only evil continually"
(Genesis 6:5) as men filled with rage against their fellow
man shed man's blood. Following the flood the Lord told
Noah, "Surely I will require your lifeblood; from every
beast I will require it. And from every man, from every
man's brother I will require the life of man. Whoever
sheds man's blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for
in the image of God He made man" (Genesis 9:5-6).
Murder is suggested in the actions of the works of the
flesh as "enmities, strife, jealousy, outbursts of anger,
disputes, dissensions, factions, envying" (Galatians
5:20,21) drive men to kill one another. Jesus said "For out
of the heart come evil thoughts, murders" (Matthew
15:19). The challenge of the deeds listed in Galatians 5 is
not only the sin itself but what the sin leads to. The taking
of human life has always been condemned by Jehovah
when the actions are unrighteous. David murdered Uriah
for his lust of Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11); Naboth was
falsely accused and murdered by Jezebel for a vineyard (1
Kings 21; 2 Kings 9:26); Jesus accused the Jews of
murdering the prophets (Matthew 23:31,35); and even
Jesus was killed by unrighteous men (1 Thessalonians
2:15).
When God spoke to Noah in Genesis 9, He established
forever the condemnation of those who take the lives of


other men. The Ten Commandments clearly forbade the
killing of men for unjust cause (Exodus 20:13). Penalties
were swift and severe for murder in the Law of Moses
(Exodus 21:14; Leviticus 24:21). The Lord will punish the
murderer (1 Timothy 1:9; Revelation 21:8). It would seem
obvious that murder (the taking of life) is repulsive and
forbidden - yet while we would never suggest our part in
such deeds, we find another aspect of this hatred.
"Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer; and
you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in
him" (1 John 3:15). Jesus taught the same principle in the
Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5:21-26). We cannot
worship God with this kind of heart. When hatred and
malice dwell in the heart of a person there can be no hope
of eternal life.
Murder is imagined in this sense that while no physical
life is taken, the feelings of hate reign in the heart. This
will defile a man (Matthew 15:19,20). We like to say that
we are to "love one another but not like one another." This
represents an attitude of disrespect for others and for God.
Prejudice, jealousy and envy will lead to murderous
thoughts in the heart. "For if our heart condemn us, God
is greater than our heart, and knows all things" (1 John
3:20). Albert Barnes wrote, "The private malice, the secret
grudge, the envy which is cherished in the heart, is
murderous in its tendency."
Those who allow the spirit of Satan to fill their hearts
will not inherit the kingdom of God! That is not a maybe;
that is a reality! We should heed the warning of the Lord
through the prophet Jeremiah in Jeremiah 7.

Beautiful." She wrote, "Confirm thy
soul in self control."
Never let others, especially those
who stand to make a commission,
make the decision for you. It is nearly
impossible to go wrong implement-
ing a buy and hold strategy. Known
as a low turnover portfolio, it is the
antithesis of the brokerage industry.
Remember 'that a 'portion of any
unrealized profit belongs to Uncle
Sam. As long as you do not sell, you
can continue to use his money to en-
hance your gains...interest free.
Investment guru Warren Buffett
has stated that he is quite content to
hold any security indefinitely so long
as the return on equity of the underly-
ing business is satisfactory.
Does this mean you never sell a
stock? No, of course not, especially
if a company is suffering from de-
teriorating management, inadequate
cost controls, questionable account-
ing practices, a lack of innovation or
unfavorable industry trends.
Now I know what you are asking
yourself, are there any stocks I rec-
ommend selling? Last year at this
time I mentioned the airlines and
the domestic auto manufacturers. I
still do not hold those stocks in high
esteem. Although there are several
companies vying strongly for the
title, GM's management is probably
the most unenlightened of any major
company on the planet.
Blinding greed results in poor
marks for many of the major financial
houses, with Citigroup being first on
my sell list, followed closely by such
eminent institutions as Wachovia. To-
bacco stocks are also on the sell list.
Finally, there is Motorola, a sad story
of incompetent management that just
could not read the tea leaves.'

On Monday, May 26, we attended
the Memorial Day Service in front of
the Gilchrist County Courthouse in
Trenton. While waiting for the cere-
mony to begin I sat down to wait and
my mind wandered to this weekly
column which was still unwritten.
After pitching several ideas to myself
and promptly rejecting them all it oc-
curred to me how lucky or I should
say blessed, I am to live in a country
where I enjoyed the freedom to write
about any topic I choose. This paper
has been written and distributed each
week for over 78 years. During that
time over 4,075 issues of the Journal
have been published.
My late father-in-law, J. Min, be-
gan at the paper when he was a very
young man. Back in his day the paper
was printed by a letterpress method;
now days we e-mail the whole kit and
caboodle to the printer without ever
leaving the Journal office. During all
these years, through all those issues,
never ever has anyone looked over
our shoulder or checked what would'
be published in the county's weekly
paper.
We all tend to take our nation
and our very freedom for granted.
Thomas Jefferson once said, "Those
who hammer their guns into plows
will plow for those who do not." The
men and women who served our na-
tion since the Revolutionary War
where some 10,623 soldiers died to
the present day Operation Iraqi Free-
dom which has claimed the lives of
4,082 service men and women so far,
around 2,761,278 Americans have
died protecting my right to hammer
out a column each week.
Even more importantly when Sun-
day morning arrives we all have the
choice to go to any church we choose
or to not go at all. We also enjoy the
right to register to vote and go to the
polls and vote without harassment of
any kind.
Thank you to all those who have
served our country in the military and
thank you to all those who have given
their own children who have died in
the protection of our country and our
very freedom. How Blessed we are
to have young men and women who
will still today pay the ultimate sacri-
fice. Because of God's grace and the
military I have yet again hammered
out another column.

We've picked a few blackberries in
the pines behind our house and I used


them to bake the following simple
but delicious cake so it works equally
well when using black or blueber-
ries. Those berries were so fat and
juicey. If you have just moved to the
county and decide to go wild black-
berry picking keep a sharp eye out for
snakes.


1 2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
3/4 cup sour cream
1 cup fresh blackberries or
blueberries
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees
and grease and flour a 9-inch square
pan.
Combine the flour, baking powder,
and salt in a bowl, and stir with a fork
to mix well. In a medium bowl, com-
bine the butter and sugar, and beat
at high speed until well combined.
Add the egg and beat well for about
2 minutes. Stopping often to scrape
down the bowl, beat until batter is
smooth and light.
Mix milk with sour cream.
Add half the flour mixture and half
the milk/sour cream, beat on low
speed until combined. Then add the
rest of the milk/sour cream and then
the rest of the flour and beat until well
incorporated on low speed. Stir in the
blueberries or blackberries after dust-
ing them with about a tablespoon of
flour.
Put batter into prepared pan and
bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or
until golden brown and cake begins
to pull away from side of the pan. If
the cake is done it will spring back if
you touch it in the center.
This cake has no icing but you can
dribble a little glaze across the top.
Glaze can be made from about a half
cup of confectioners sugar mixed
with a tablespoon or so of lemon
juice.

Does anyone have a tri-colored,
short legged male sheltie about a year
old that needs a good home?
A wonderful lady lost her sheltie to
cancer and she misses him very much
because he was her constant compan-
ion. She realizes that the chances
of finding one exactly like her late
pet are slim. He was her inside pet,
walked on a leash and shared his life
totally with her. She requires the use
of a cane but she is very capable of
taking good care of a pet.

Programs recognize vete

at end of life


By Lindsey Thomas
Veterans are a special group of
people who have so bravely put their
lives on the line for our country, and
more than 50,000 of them die every
month. Yet many do not realize that
included in their benefits package is
access to hospice and palliative care.
The Veterans' Health Care Eligibility
Reform Act of 1996 states that the
Department of Veterans Affairs (VA)
"must offer to provide or purchase
hospice and palliative care services
that VA determines an enrolled veter-
an needs." Veterans have earned the
right to comprehensive, compassion-
ate care at the end of life and should
take advantage of it.
In 2002, the VA established a na-
tional network of Hospice-Veteran
Partnerships (HVPs) to improve hos-'
pice access for veterans. Other goals
of HVPs are strengthening relation-
ships between community hospices
and VA facilities, and initiating plan-
ning to get the message about end-of-
life care out to veterans in the com-
munity. So far, 33 states including
Florida have established HVPs, and
another eight states have expressed
interest in creating HVPs. Activities
that HVPs can engage in include con-
ducting an assessment to determine
the needs of veterans in the commu-
nity, and organizing community out-
reach programs for veteran groups
about advance care planning and
other resources available to them.
Florida hospices often go the ex-
tra measure in expressing thanks to a
veteran in their care for his or her ser-
vice to our nation. An example of this
includes awarding pins offered by the
Hospice-Veteran Partnership of Flor-
ida. Haven Hospice has implemented
this through its Veterans Recognition
Program spearheaded , by Colonel
(USAF, Ret) Fran Martin, Haven's
volunteer veteran liaison. Through
this program, a veteran in a U.S.

I hope that everyone had a safe hol-
iday weekend and took time between
"fun and games" to reflect on the sig-
nificance of Memorial Day. Our club
would like to pay tribute to all those
veterans who paid the ultimate price
with their lives, so that we may enjoy
all these freedoms today.
We will be having a board meeting
next Thursday, June 5 at 5 p.m. at the
Gilchrist Woman's Club building on
CR 339, just south of Trenton. This
year's officers and chairpersons will
be working on forming the various
committees. Old (no pun intended)
and new members are welcome to
express themselves. So give these la-
dies a call if you are interested in get-
ting involved in a particular group.

shirt of the hospice patient and reads
a statement of thanks. Martin takes
photos, with the permission of the
patient and family, during each pin-
ning ceremony. On one occasion, the
photo taken at the pinning ceremony
was the first picture the husband and
wife had together in 20 years. Martin
gives the family a copy of the photo
as well as places a copy in a scrap-
book she keeps of all veterans she has
visited.
"A veteran in hospice care today
may not see another Veterans Day
or Memorial Day," Martin said. "We
are a free nation today thanks to their
service and sacrifice. We can never
thank them enough, but the Hospice-
Veteran Partnerships give us another
opportunity to say thank you.".

All 640 students at Bell Elementary
School enjoyed the 2008 Career Day
which was held Wednesday, May
21. During the all day event students
learned about 14 different possible
career choices.
Julie Thomas of Simply Delightful
Catering treated the children to a cup
of apple juice from her punch foun-
tain all the while telling the students
about the fun job of catering social
events. While Miss Julie had their at-
tention she also gave them a lesson
on proper etiquette while attending
social events.
Travis Cooper and Billy Giles both
officers with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
not only brought a live alligator to the
school for the students to see but they
brought Parker a 4-year-old choco-
late lab who is used by Officer Giles
to track humans and animals. Parker
was a big hit with the children and
he seemed to enjoy spending the day
with the children. They were allowed
to pet him and throw his toy for him
to retrieve.
The children learned a lot about


electricity from lineman Joe Young
of GRU. Young explained the dan-
gers of electricity to the children
while making several demonstrations
of the power of electrical current on
a model.
All the students were pleased to get
to try their hand at cake decorating.
Ms. Bell who runs a local cake busi-
ness gave each student a cup cake
and they decorated it. She also ex-
plained the cake decorating business
to them.
The children also enjoyed career
talks from Trooper Daniel Caulk and
Trooper Keith Slanker of the Florida
Highway Patrol, Dr. Bruce E. Thom-
as of Bell Family Health Care, Nicole
Brown a Pharmacy Technician, Bry-
ant Frye of the Taser Company, Andy
Home a Karate instructor, Kim Weise
of Reletive Care Giver, Greta Martin
of Gainesville Air, Linda Walker of
Gilchrist County EMS and Angela
Renick event planner.
This annual event is planned and
organized by the Guidance Office at
Bell Elementary to give the children
an opportunity to explore the many
careers available to them.


These 5th graders from the top, Robin Messier, Michaelah Sundberg
and Adrianna Hodge are shown with Kevin Benson of the Gilchrist

Comprehensive Roadside

Sobriety Checkpoint


The Florida Highway Patrol will be
conducting a Comprehensive Road-
side Sobriety Checkpoint (CRSC)
within Troop B, on Friday, May 30,
2008.
The checkpoint will be conducted
in Suwannee County on U.S. High-
way 90 near Live Oak, Florida.
This is a continuing enforcement
program to identify persons who are
operating a motor vehicle with de-
fective equipment, without a valid
driver's license, without a proper ve-
hicle registration, proper insurance or
while under the influence of alcohol
or other drugs.
During 2007, more than 3,223
motorists were killed and another
212,110 were injured in crashes in
Florida. Additionally, during the
same year, Suwannee County expe-
rienced 56 alcohol-related crashes
resulting in 20 fatalities.
Checkpoints have proven to re-
duce the number of DUI drivers on
our highways.
The objectives of these check-
points are: 1. Deter vehicles from
being operated on the highways with
defective equipment. 2. Deter driv-
ers from operating vehicles without a
valid driver's license.


3. Deter drivers from operating ve-
hicles without proper insurance and/
or proper registration. The roadside
safety checkpoint is part of our ex-
tensive enforcement plan. This plan,
coupled with increased public aware-
ness will hopefully reduce traffic
deaths.


*A battery-powered radio, flash-
light
and plenty of extra batteries.

Jack and Loy Ann Mann donate

15-acre parcel for new CFCC campus


0 0 0 0 0

By Terry Witt
Levy County Journal
A few miles north of Chiefland, a
picturesque oak hammock stands be-
tween U.S. 19 and the Nature Coast
Trail. The 15-acre parcel could have
been the perfect place for a commer-
cial venture, but the owners have de-
cided its highest and best use would
be as a future college campus.
And they have given it away.
Jack and Loy Ann Mann have do-
nated the forested track to Central
Florida Community College as the
site of its next Levy campus. CFCC's
Levy Center has been housed since
1993 in rented facilities at a shopping
center in Chiefland. But the college
was ready to expand in Levy Coun-
ty.
When a consultant for the college
began inquiring of selected people in
the community where the next cam-
pus should be located, the Mann's
were contacted. 'They were never
asked to donate property, but they
talked it over and decided the land
they owned north of Chiefland would
be perfect for a college campus.
Jack Mann had been a successful
chiropractor in Chiefland for about 25
years. He had patients from through-
out the tri-county area. Loy Ann
Mann was a successful realtor who
had served for a time on the CFCC
Board of Trustees.
They said they realized the com-
munity had been good to them and
.they wanted to show their apprecia-
tion by providing a site for a perma-
nent CFCC campus, a facility that
would offer students two-year de-
grees. They believe Levy, Gilchrist
and Dixie county young people will
benefit from the new campus.
"We did it for the tri-county area,"
Loy Ann Mann said. "We're grow-
ing and we need to grow in the right
way."
Jack Mann emphasized that the
new campus won't be anything like
Santa Fe Community College's
branch facility along State Road 24
in Archer. He said the Chiefland site
will be a full college campus.
"It ties this whole area together for
education," he said.
CFCC has asked the community to
raise $1.5 million for the new cam-
pus. The money would place the
project higher on the funding list of
the Florida Legislature, according to
Rayanne Giddis, director of the Levy
Center.
"That puts you on the priority list,"

Jack and Loy Ann Mann


she said. "It tells the Florida Legisla-
ture these folks have demonstrated a
strong desire."
Approximately $850,000 has been
pledged or donated for the new Levy
County campus, but an additional
$650,000 is needed to reach the goal.
The selection of Levy County as
the site of a future campus began
when the college assembled a future
sites task force. The Levy County
site was given the highest priority by
the Board of Trustees. Bob Hastings
urged the trustees to build the next
campus near Chiefland.
After the Chiefland site was picked,
the college hired the Eaton Cummings
Group to meet with selected people
in the community about finding an
actual parcel of land for the college
campus. That's when the Manns were
contacted.
Loy Ann Mann said an attempt
was made to find a suitable location
in Chiefland, but the parcels were too
small for a college campus.
Giddis said the opportunity for very
large donations is also out there.
If someone were to donate $2.5
million, the new campus would bear
their name. If someone were to do-
nate $750,000, the main building
constructed in the first phase would

The primary campus building
would cost $8.5 million to $9 million
to build using today's cost figures.
The building would be 22,000 to

Teen Challenge to
be at Union Baptist
Church
Drugs are a national epidemic.
The U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services estimates that 37
percent of people in America admit
to having tried some form of illegal
drugs or are currently using them. 82
percent of violent crimes are com-
mitted by individuals under the influ-
ence of drugs and alcohol. Currently,
1.4 million kids under 17 use illegal
drugs. The majority of teen suicides
are drug related. Thousands of people
are killed on highways each year be-
cause of drug and alcohol abuse. The
situation is bad but far from hope-
less.
Teen Challenge is a discipleship
program for men and women of all
ages who are experiencing various
addictions. The program is based on
Biblical principles. It has an 86 per-
cent success rate and now has over
140 facilities nationwide to reach
those in need and bring them to a
complete recovery. No other program
even comes close to that rate of suc-
cess.
The Choir and Drama Team from
the Ft. Myers Teen Challenge Wom-
en's Center will be at Union Baptist
Church on Sunday, June 1 at 11 a.m.
If you are experiencing addiction or
know someone who is, please join us
and hear this group share what God
has done in their lives. For directions
or further information please call the

Heart Matters


Congratulations Graduates! For
many students, this week marks
the celebration of a long-awaited
achievement, as well as the begin-
ning of a new challenge: "What will I
do with my life?" Some of you have
carefully mapped out plans, while
others are still struggling for answers.
In your search, consider the words of
Jeremiah 6:16,
"This is what the Lord says: "Stand
at the crossroads and look: ask for
the ancient paths, ask where the good
way is, and walk in it, and you will
find rest for your souls..."
You now stand at one of the big-
gest crossroads of your life. Gradu-
ation is the end of a path that began
years ago as you left Mom and Dad
to climb onto the school bus and walk
into the classroom on your own. Now
is the time to celebrate...with an eye
to the future.
Stand at this crossroad and look.
At a crossroad, or intersection, you
make your decision about which way
to go based on where you want to end
up. Consider what you have learned
about life and about yourself, and
look for the good way that leads to
your future. The right path for living
is marked out by God, but it requires
careful searching to uncover. The
popular, easier path is always going
to be offered and it will be tempting,
but know that it leads to a dead-end
life.. .when we ignore God's map we
lose our way.


tivities on Saturday, June 7, at 9 a.m.
Bob Jones will lead a work hike in
Marion County to trim brush and
clear the Florida Trail of debris.
Contact leader Bob Jones (352) 347-

for more information and to sign up.
Elizabeth Van Mierop will lead a
paddle trip on the Suwannee River
beginning at the Suwannee River
Canoe/Kayak Outpost north of Live
Oak on Saturday June 14. The group
will leisurely paddle approximately 6
miles downstream stopping along the
way to rest, swim and have lunch on
the sandbars. Canoe/kayak rentals
available. Contact leader Elizabeth
Van Mierop (352) 378-4207, eliza-
van@aol.com for more information
and to sign up.
On Saturday, June 21, Rosalie
McGrath will lead a day hike on the
shady trails and boardwalk at Morn-
ingside Nature Center east of Gaines-
ville. Bring a bag lunch to enjoy at
the bird blind. Contact leader Rosa-
lie McGrath (352) 473-3334 for in-
formation and to sign up.
There will be no chapter meetings
during June, July and August. Reg-
ular chapter meetings will resume


Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse
of that good way, don't get frustrated
if you can't see the whole plan right
now...start with one step...it may be
that you find the directions for the
next step on the way. Get going.. .a
tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, but -C;
only if it is moving. Be confident .,-
that God has a plan for your life. In
Ephesians 2:10 the Bible tells us "For
we are God's workmanship, created
in Christ Jesus to do good works,
which God prepared in advance for
us to do." That word "workmanship"
also means "masterpiece"...one of a
kind! God created you uniquely for a
specific purpose.. .to do good works.
The kicker is that He has prepared
them "in advance" for you to do. All
we have to do is follow His map to
find them!
Find rest for your souls...Of all
the things I could hope and pray for -
you.. .this is it. In a world full of un-
rest, strife and lack of peace, having ,
rest for your soul is priceless, and
it only comes from being in right
standing with the One who created,
you. Notice that this rest comes as a ,
result of standing, looking, asking,
and walking... with Him. Your life
consists of this time between your
appointed birth and death.. .how will
you spend it? Choose carefully... be- .,-
cause your heart (and your life) mat-
ters!
Congratulations!

National Bike Mor
The Florida Department of Health
(DOH) recognizes National Bike
Month as an important opportunity to
raise awareness of the importance of
safety while cycling. Head injury is
the leading cause of death in bicycle
crashes and is the most important
determinant of bicycle-related death
and permanent disability.
The single most effective safety
device available to reduce head inju-
ry and death from bicycle crashes is a
helmet. Helmet use reduces the risk
of bicycle-related death and injury
and also the severity of head injury
when a crash occurs. Cycling with-
out a bicycle helmet significantly in-
creases the risk of sustaining a head
injury in the event of a crash. Non-
helmeted riders are 14 times more
likely to be involved in a fatal crash
than helmeted riders.
The DOH Office of Injury Preven-
tion administers the Bicycle Hel-
met Promotion Program, through a
grant from the Florida Department
of Transportation. Helmets are pur-

communication and cooperation
with all other government agencies,
schools, churches, as well as other
civic and community leaders. Suc-
cessful law enforcement is a cooper-
ative effort between the community
and the Sheriff.
If elected I would concentrate on
and accomplish these goals through
strong community outreach programs
from within the Sheriff's Office. I
would also establish a Regional Drug
Task Force by cooperating with all
neighboring County, State, and Fed-
eral law enforcement agencies. This
allows all agencies involved to pool
resources thereby providing bet-
ter enforcement to address the drug
problems in our area.
I would assure fiscal responsibil-
ity at all levels of the Sheriff's Office
resulting in the best possible service
for the absolute lowest cost. I would
implement a Fleet Management pro-
gram which would reduce mainte-
nance costs, increase fuel economy,
and provide increased law enforce-
ment visibility and enforcement in all
areas of the county with grid system
zoning of deputies.
I would also create' an Employee
Recruitment and Retention program
utilizing advanced human resource
management principles which will
assure that Gilchrist County has the
very best deputies to respond to your
needs in time of crisis. This will at
the same time produce a teamwork
mentality within the Sheriff's Of-
fice resulting in high morale and bet-
ter service to the community. I will
encourage and support our young
people who wish to work in local law
enforcement by participating in their
education and training. I will also
sponsor qualified candidates for the
police academy if they are willing to
work and reside in Gilchrist County.
I will require all command staff,
employed by me, live in Gilchrist
County.
The men and women who choose
to put their lives on the line deserve
the best available training, equip-
ment, and education to be successful
in the very difficult job they do for us
every day. I am capable of preparing
the deputies for every aspect of their
job: from learning.the law, applying
the law, investigating the case for
prosecution, and ultimately testifying
and presenting the case in court. The
deputies will need this preparation
because they will be held account-
able for each and every aspect of
their job including how they handle
each case and how they interact with
the public. .. . . .
, hd ave the, pledge, skills, and
albilities to lead bur Sheriff's Office
and protect our citizens. I am asking
for your support to give me the op-

Pat Osowiecki has finished this wall hanging. The squares were made
by Betty Fredricks several years ago. She has had to quit making any-
thing. She gave us all her blocks that we hope in time can be fin-

Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
May 22 at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Quilting is going well on
our Quilt Show Log Cabin as well as
our No Name Quilt. Many projects
are being made, some for next year's
fair.
It was great to have rain this after-
noon. All I could say was thank you
Lord. The air needed to be washed
and there is nothing like a good rain.
Our prayers are with so many to-
day. The people who are caregivers
need prayers. As I have often said,
who takes care of the person who de-
votes their lives taking care of loved
ones and we know they need to know


we all care.
Greg and six boys were out Thurs-
day, the boys got the mowing done
as well as fertilizing and watering.
We had cabbage for dinner that they
planted and now we have tomatoes,
peppers, and so much more. Thanks

Lunch today was so good with Bar-

Act now to
avoid a
summer blood
shortage
Summer is on the way, and that
means two things for LifeSouth
Community Blood Centers - the de-
mand for blood will remain strong,
while the number of donors often
goes down - and that could spell seri-
ous trouble ahead.
"Supplies are currently, adequate,
but as we 160ok aheid to June, July
and August, we can see that the
number of groups that have sched-
uled blood drives is down consider-
ably, and that's very troubling," said
Nancy Eckert, LifeSouth CEO. "The
best way to tackle a blood shortage
is to prevent it, and we need the help
of the entire community now to do
that."
Just how serious is the deficit
ahead? LifeSouth supplies blood for
more than 130 medical facilities in
Alabama, Georgia and Florida and
system-wide needs about 800 units
of blood donated daily just to meet
those needs. The current projections
show donations running 18,000 units
behind the anticipated need for June,
July and August. .
Galen Unold, LifesSouth's director
of donor recruitment and retention,
said vacations will frequently' take
regular donors out of the area, cutting
into the ability to resupply local blood
needs. Enrollment drops on college
campuses as well, and students are a
major source of blood donations.
"This presents a real challenge, be-
cause the demand for blood doesn't
take a summer vacation," Unold said.
"But the solution isn't complicated or
even difficult, it just takes teamwork
from the entire community."
Unold said the key is to schedule
bloodrives, where LifeSouth brings
the drive to you.
And they are vital. Nearly 85% of
blood that LifeSouth collects comes
from drives outside of its donor
centers. Bfisinesses large and small,
churches and civic groups can call to
schedule a drive. LifeSouth can bring
a bloodmobile or set up a drive in a
spare room or office. And if you think
your organization is too small, Life-
South says think again.
"If we can get eight participants in
four hours, it's well worth our time
and effort. Small groups can also join
together to host a drive."
For those who've never hosted a
drive, Unold said, they could be in


for a surprise. Not only can a blood
drive help bring a group together for
a common cause, it can really be fun.
All summer long, LifeSouth is of-
fering blood drives with a summer
camp theme, and donors get a special
T-shirt for making the effort. Anyone
age 17 or older, in good health and
weighing 110 pounds is eligible to
donate. A photo ID is required.
"We won't make you sing silly
songs, but if you are so inspired,
be our guest," Unold said. "As you
donate, you'll be able to snack on
Smores."
To learn about booking a blood
drive call toll-free (866) 592-8678 or
email scheduling@lifesouth.org. We
will be happy to help you.

By Cindy Jo Ayers
The large oaks behind the agricul-
ture education building at Trenton
High provided shade for a very spe-
cial event last week. The Pre-K Farm
Day is the annual petting zoo for pre-
kindergarten students from Trenton
Elementary. Well, actually the event
did feature a live horse, goats, rab-
bits, turtle, several heifers, and a
dairy cow but it was a lot more than a
mere chance to pet an animal. At this
event the children learned about life
on a farm and how agriculture affects
our everyday life.
One of the learning centers was
held at the FFA catfish pond. Down
at the pond the Pre-K students were
each assisted by an FFA member as
they fished. The four year olds were
very excited to feel the tug of a fish
on the end of their line. They also
received a lesson about aquaculture
and learned what types seafood and
fish are raised at aquaculture farms.
The students learned that clams, fish,
oysters, eels, as well as bait can all be
grown/farmed in the water..
Racheal Harrison and Taylor Lang-
ford, two of the more experienced
dairy cattle owners in the chapter,
explained what type products come
from cows. Not only did the young
students learn about cheese and milk,
they also made butter by shaking up
cream. And they were all pleased to
have a chance to pet the gentle dairy
cow.
The students planted a garden in
the fingers of clear plastic gloves.
They each planted different seeds


in a cotton ball. They took the glove
filled with the cotton balls back to
their class room to watch their seeds
sprout. They planted common garden
seeds such as radishes in the glove.
The students had an opportunity to
compare each type seed while plant-
ing them.
When they visited the dirt lab
they learned about the different lay-
ers of soil and how many things live
in the soil including a few wiggly
worms. This lab ended when the stu-
dents made a dirt dessert. This des-
sert, much like the soil, began with
a layer of chocolate cookies which
were topped with chocolate pudding
with green grass growing out the top
(dyed coconut). This interesting and
fun dessert was topped off by a gum-
my worm.
One of their favorite learning cen-
ters was the American Quarter horse
station where they learned of the
many ways horses are still used to-
day. They were very impressed with
the tall beautiful quarter horse who
visited the school for the day.
The goats and rabbits enjoyed
some extra treats as each student was
given the opportunity to feed them a
snack, they also received a great deal
of petting and a few hugs.
This student-led annual event was
yet again a big hit as the young stu-
dents had recently finished the Things
That Grow Unit in their classrooms.
The Trenton FFA Chapters and ag-
riculture students hold this event an-
nually for the Pre-K classes in Tren-
ton.


Shae Fischer had a good time petting the kid goats.


Brett Crawford helps Jaxon Nes,
Smith catch a fish.


Traven Gay was pleased to get his dirt treat which included a gummy

Tabitha McCumber spent time fishing with Madison Mahony.

Mosley declined medical services.
The fish did not survive the en-
counter.
FWC officials remind boaters that
sturgeons are returning to the Suwan-
nee River to spawn, and the agency
wants to alert boaters to the risks of
jumping sturgeons.


Steven Swan is shown with the butter he made with help from Taylo'
Langford.


"There are signs posted at all the
boat ramps along the Suwannee ex-
plaining the risk of impacts with these
fish," said Karen Parker, public infor-
mation coordinator for FWC's North
Central Region. "Boaters have been
seriously injured when hit by these
fish. This is the first reported stur-
geon strike for 2008. Let's hope that
it's the last. We recommend boaters
reduce their speed to reduce the risk
of impact."
Biologists are unsure why stur-
geons jump. The fish winter in the
Gulf of Mexico and enter the Suwan-
nee in the summer and fall months
to spawn. They can grow to 8 feet in
length and weigh up to 200 pounds.
Sturgeons are a protected species and
cannot be harvested.
To report sturgeon collisions, call
1-888-404-FWCC (3922).
