County will move forward with Senior Citizens9 Center


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action during their Monday,
June 16 meeting to move forward
with the construction of a new Senior
Citizen's Center in Gilchrist County.
The facility will be located on
property north of Trenton Elemen-
tary School along CR-307A.
The board discussed the construc-
tion with Frances Terry, executive
director of the Suwannee River Eco-
nomic Council, Inc.
The entire cost of construction was
identified at $328,647 with a state
grant portion to cover $245,847 and
Gilchrist County to provide $82,800,
which will include the value of the
property as well as other in-kind ser-
vices.


Terry introduced Richard Tillis,
the pre-construction manager, to the
board during the meeting.
Tillis explained to the five-member
board that the Economic Council is
intending to build new Senior Citi-
zens' Centers in Gilchrist, Union and
Dixie counties all at the same time
The new Senior Citizens' Center
will be located on one acre of prop-
erty on the northwest corner of the
former Trenton FFA hayfield.
I Construction is expected to begin
within three months and a completion
date has been set for June 30, 2009
The Gilchrist County Commission
had also requested Bailey, Bishop
and Lane Engineers to design a site
for the proposed construction and
identify a location for a future Ag -


riculture Center as well as a Health
Department.
The engineering group design
identified all of these sites as well as a
4.3-acre storm water retention area.
Jerry Poole, a representative with
Bailey, Bishop and Lane, explained


to the board that the retention area
could be moved around on the prop-
erty if needed.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. asked County Administrator Ron
McQueen if this project was going
to cost the county any out-of-pocket


funds.
McQueen explained that Gilchrist
County will have to work to provide
a 6-inch water main as well as site
prep and pre-construction work.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
made a motion to have Bailey, Bish-


op and Lane Engineers provide a le-
gal description to Gilchrist County to
continue the process of the construc-
tion.
The county commissioners voted
5-0 in favor of the new Senior Citi-
zen's Center.


Trenton woman killed


in head-on
By Carrie A. Mizell
A Trenton woman was killed and
a Steinhatchee resident was seri-
ously injured in a head-on collision
Saturday afternoon on US 19 in Levy
County.
Sheila Lorraine Walker, 47, of
Trenton, was traveling north on US
19 when she attempted to make a left
turn onto NW 160th Street. Walker
steered her 1994 Chevrolet truck in
front of a 1996 Dodge truck driven
by Kristopher Dean Strickland, 44, of
Steinhatchee. The vehicles collided
head on in the right southbound lane
of US 19.
According to Cpl. Rodney How-
ard of the Florida Highway Patrol, an
unknown tractor-trailer was traveling
south on US 19 in the left lane ob-
structing the view of the right south-


collision
bound lane of US 19 for Walker.
Walker's vehicle rotated coun-
ter clockwise and came to rest fac-
ing in a southeasterly direction in
the left southbound lane of US 19,.
Cpl. Howard stated in his report on
the accident. Strickland's tfuck w as
redirected by Walker's vehicle in a
southwesterly direction onto the west
shoulder of the highway before com-
ing to rest facing southeasterly in the
right southbound lane of US 19.
Walker, who was not wearing ia
seatbelt at the time of "te accident.
was ejected from her vehicle and
was later pronounced dead at Shands
Hospital.
Strickland, who was also not wear-
ing a seatbelt at the time of the ac-
cident, was transported to Shands
Hospital with serious injuries.


Bailey, Bishop mid Lane Engineers provided the Gilchrist County Con


mmissioners with the above rendering which depicts the Senior Citizens'

Diamond 99/L. R. Thomas family named


2008 'Conservation Farmer of the Year'


The Gilchrist Soil and Water Con-
servation District (GSWCD) cel-
ebrated the 2008 Soil Stewardship
Banquet on May 20, by presenting
a plaque to the Diamond 99/L. R.
Thomas family who was chosen 2008
"Conservation Farmer of the Year."
GSWCD Vice Chairman Tommy
Jones presented the plaque to the
family who has shown a willing-
ness to implement Best Management
Practices (BMPs) on their family-run
agriculture operation that includes
growing, corn, melons and raising
beef cattle. The Thomas family has
implemented innovative technology
to protect both soil arid ground water
resources at their farm. '
The Soil Stewardship program
relies on locally-led conservation
sharing and promoting stewardship
and conservation activities. Districts
provide conservation and steward-
ship field days, programs, work-
shops and additional outreach efforts
throughout the community to educate
citizens about the need to care for
our resources. Many District activi-
ties extend beyond the one week ob-
servance to include an entire year of
outreach.
The Stewardship concept involves
personal and social responsibility,
including a duty to learn about and
improve natural resources as we use
them wisely, leaving a rich legacy for
the future generations.

One definition of Stewardship is
"the 'individual's responsibility to
manage his life and property with
proper regard to the rights of others."
E. William Anderson suggests stew-
ardship "is essentially a synonym for
conservation "


Stewardship helps' remind all citi-
zens of the power of each person to
conserve natural resources and im-
prove the world. When people work
together with their local conservation
district, that power grows and grows.
As these good deeds multiply across


the nation's network of conservation
districts, the results are spectacular.
When the land does well for its
owner, and the owner does well by
his land when both end up better by
reason of the partnership then we
have conservation. -Aldo Leopold

Former Trenton resident trains for


Winter Olympic event_


By Carrie A. Mizell
Imagine lying flat on your stomach
riding a sled face first, down a bob-
sled track at speeds of 80 miles per
hour. The gravitational force pulls
your head down as you slide about an
inch above the ice, says one former
Trenton resident who is currently in
the Winter Olympics training pro-
gram.
While living in Trenton in the late
1970s and early 1980s Harold Rob-
erts watched his first Olympic bob-
sledding competition on television at
the age of 14.
"The Olympics were held in Lake
Placid, New York that year," Rob-
erts said. "Twenty-eight years later I
would get to slide on that track."
After graduating from Dixie Coun-
ty High School in 1985, Roberts
moved away for three years prior to
moving back to Trenton. While liv-
ing in Trenton, Roberts worked at a
few different jobs, Kincaid Products,
Inc., Piedmont Farms and the Tren-
ton Skating Rink before moving to
Tampa in 1998.
At the age of 40, Roberts tried out
and made a semi-pro football team in
Tampa, though his dream of compet-
ing in the Olympics never waivered.
In 1999 Roberts started sending his
athletic resume to the United States
Bobsled and Skeleton Federation
hoping to get invited to go to Bobsled
driving school. Year after year Rob-
erts was turned down. Then in 2002
a new sliding sport debuted at the
Winter Olympics, called Skeleton.
The event features athletes pushing
sleds to start before hopping on the
small flat sled stomach first and slid-
ing down the same tracks bobsled-
ders use.
"I thought to myself that maybe
this was my way in," Roberts said.
He began intensive training, but his
athletic career was put on hold while


Harold Roberts slides down the bobsled track while skeleton training.


he went through a divorce.
"I watched the Skeleton athletes
compete in the Olympics that year on
television," Roberts said. "It was the
first time I ever saw Skeleton."
Roberts remembers watching
the women's competition where an
underdog Skeleton athlete named
Tristan Gale competed for the United
States and won a gold medal in the
2002 Olympics. At that that time Roberts
had no idea that five years later he
would meet and become friends with
Gale.
This year marks Roberts' third year
in the sport. At the age of 42, Roberts
said competing in the 2010 Winter
Games in Canada would be ideal, but
he does not think he has the experi-
ence required to compete just yet.
"If I am going to make it, it will
have to be the 2014 Winter Olympics
in Russia and I will be 47," Roberts
said. "Most people think I will be too
old by then, but last September I ran.
the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds at our
development evaluations, which is


not bad for a guy over 40 years old."
Roberts said he feels like he has
what it takes because when he got in-
vited to try Skeleton he had to slide
at the Utah track, the same track the
2002 Olympics were held on and on
his third day sliding he registered
better times than several athletes who
competed in the 2002 Olympics on
the same track.
"At this point I am still in the de-
velopment program, but I hope to be
on the world cup team within two to
three years so I can make a run at the
2014 Olympics," Roberts said.
"Skeleton is the most demanding
sport I have ever competed in. Skel-
eton itself is so fast, but the speed is
not what gets to you, the gravitational
forces that you take on the curves is
what gets you; when those five g's hit
you, your head gets pulled .to the ice
and your face actually drags the ice
on some of the turns, of course you
have a helmet for protection, but it
can be' scary at times when your face
drags the ice at 80 miles per hour."

Character Council's spotlight shines on Cavanah


By Geneva Cornwell
There are certain people in this
world who make it their business to
furnish what is needed to assist oth-
ers in preparing for the future.
They act upon needs with no re-
gard for themselves. These wise and
prudent individuals instinctively
know what to do and know how to
gp about the act of beforehand prepa-
itLon involNing situations he. it'for
education, protection; emergencies,
sppQortofpthepworiE the liked si!n-
These "providers" know exactly
where to go and who to ask for the
procurement of what is needed.
We have in our midst such a pro-
vider, a man who is resourceful,
prudent, but thrifty. He is constantly
ensuring the best use of all available
resources.
Our character trait for the month
is the leadership quality of provider


Dan Cavanah
and Mr. Dan Cavanah fits this bill to
a "T."
Originally from Independence,
Missouri and the father of four chil-
dren and grandfather to seven, Mr.


Cavanah came to Gilchrist County
in 1994. He was appointed the posi-1
tion of Bell Town Manager in 2005
and has worked as a "provider" ever
since.
He believes that a person who has'
the gift of being a "provider," and is
wise with that gift, knows that "pro-
.vision is the key element toward per-
sonal success and understands what
resources are need for success."
Through his giftinA "of being a
"provider" Mr.' Dai,' s he is affec-
tionately known, has several credits
to his success.
He not only won a page in the
Guinness Book of World Records for
his collection of 500 stick horses, but
he also works with the Dolly Parton
Foundation with the local Town of
Bell "Imagination Library."
Right now he personally provides
free books to children' in the '32619
zip code area. He distributes about 56
books a month to children from birth
to age 5.
Mr. Cavanah believes that some-
times'a "provider" has to "go out on
a limb, take a chance in making de-

cisions to bless others and then help
them to understand how the decision
will affect their lives in the future."
The quiet man believes that "God
put each of us where He wants us
and if we are sensitive, we will fol-
low His leading in providing for the
benefit of others."
He feels that the "Imagination Li-
brary," is going to affect generations
to come. His goal with the library is
to eventually have it affect children
of the'ebtire county of Gilchrist.
So here we have another great citi-
zen of Gilchrist County, who lives
out what he believes in knowing that
moral character determines success
because good character is doing the
right thing regardless of what others
say or do.
For any parent or guardian in the
32619 zip code area who wishes to
have their child (between birth and
five years old) to receive a free book
each month, an application can be ob-
tained by contacting Mr. Cayanah at
(386) 935-1206 or dropping by either
the Bell Library or the Town Hall and
asking for one.


H


before opening
By John M. Ayers
A Gilchrist County man met with
the Gilchrist County Planning Com-
mission on Monday night to request
approval of a site plan for a vehicle
service center at 7100 SW SR 26 in
eastern Gilchrist County.
Richard A. Hughes explained to the
board that his business will be a small
two bay building that will provide
oil, lube and tire changes and minor
vehicle repair. The new business will
be located'on 1.09 acres at the comer
of SR 26 and SE 70th Ave.
Gilchrist County Planner Taylor
Brown explained to the board that the
staff recommends approval of this ap-
plication with five conditions. These
conditions include no more than five
vehicles will be allowed' to be kept
within the compound area overnight
for service. There will be no salvage
vehicles stored on site. The approval
of this application is subject to issu-
ance of a Concurrency Certificate in-
volving number of vehicle trips per
day on SR 26. A driveway permit
must be received from the Florida
Department of Transportation before
any building permits can be issued by
Gilchrist County. The application is
subject to update of a Water Manage-
ment Permit.
"Gilchrist County doesn't have a
problem with this application, but
DOT is a key issue involving the
number of trips this business would
create on a daily basis," Brown ex-
plained to the four-member board.
Gilchrist County Attorney John
McPherson recommended the board
approve the application pending the
Concurrency Certificate being pre-
sented when received. The board ap-
proved the application 4-0 pending
the approval of a Concurrency Cer-
tificate and the four remaining condi-
tions.
-----------------
The Planning Commission also ap-
proved Special Use Permit 08-07 for
Three Forty Investment Corporation
to construct a commercial neighbor-
hood facility on 7.97 acres on the
southwest comer of CR 340 and SR
47.
Taylor Brown recommended the
board approve the application after
receiving only favorable comments
from the public. This commercial
business is reported to have a gaso-
line' service center as well 'as bthef'
commercial businesses 'at this loca-
tiohn.' Board member Craig WAtson
made a motion to approve this recom-
mendation with three conditions. The
board approved the application with


the three conditions by a 4-0 vote.
-----------------
The Planning Commission ap-
proved Special Use Permits to park
Recreational Vehicles on property'.
in Gilchrist County for a maximum
of 180 days with owners staying .inr
the units on a part time basis. The
board approved a request by Joseph.
and Rebecca Cortez to stay in their.
parked RV and use the unit on a part
time basis. This unit is parked on 5'
acres in northeast Gilchrist County.
The applicants told the board that.
they intended to move to the county
and build a residence within 2 years.:,
The Planning Commission also,
discussed in detail an application
for Special Use Permit for parking,
and use of a RV on 27.6 acres of A-2
zoned property in northwest Gilchrist'
County. Margaret R. Alred of Plant;
City, Florida told the board that she,
wanted to store her RV in a 32x48'
metal building that she had built on
the property without a permit. She
also pointed out that a local contract?
tor told her this building on this A-21
zoned property would be identified as
Agriculture Use and a permit was not
needed. Aired had a concrete floof
added to the structure that is fully;
closed in. She also admitted that the
metal building has add-on wing ex-'
tensions that add to the under-roof'
footage of the structure.
Aired told the board that she in-;
tended to build a home on the prop-:
erty after she retired in December
2007, but after having the pine trees
cut, she now wanted to get a tractor
and have the trees replanted and put;
off the construction of the home untit
a later time. ,
McPherson told the board that the;
issue they were to decide tonight was.'
to allow the applicant to park her-
RV on the property with part-time
residence on the weekends up to' 18Q:
days a year. Joseph Sullivan made a-
motion to allow the applicant a SUP-
with conditions up to 180 days a year,
on the property. The board voted 4-Q,
in favor of the motion.

By Carrie A. Mizell
I read Travis Willis' Letter to the Editor with great interest on Monday
morning. Though my jaw hit the desk upon reading several different points
he made I promised myself that 1 would not respond to his comments. Having
had my say on the skateboard issue within the City of Trenton, I felt like there
was no need to beat a dead horse.
I will however turn the rest of my column over to report the latest problem
with skateboarders harassing local businesses.


4 juveniles given trespass warnings for
skateboarding on private property
Officers from the Trenton Police Department were dispatched to a trespass
call on Friday, June 13 in relation to skateboarders skating inside a private
fenced area on NE 10th Street in Trenton.
Property owner Paul Redd was spending time on the Suwannee River when
he received a call from a friend who saw four skateboarders skating behind
his six-foot barbwire fence on concrete and jumping on the loading dock at
the old feed mill he owns.
The four juveniles, none of whom reside within the City of Trenton, were
asked by officers to come out of the fenced area at which time their parents
were called.
. Redd came into town to sign the necessary paperwork so that each teenager
could be issued a trespass warning by the Trenton Police Department.
' According to Trenton Police Chief Billy Smith, the trespass warning means
that if the skateboarders are caught on Redd's property again they can be ar-
rested.

Letter to the Editor J


Who are the good ole
boys?
I moved to this city about nine
months ago and that name has come
up more times than I can count.
. From what I gather, by asking
around, this is a group of individu-
als that have a lot and are afraid of
change. This is a crying shame. I
understand that these individuals are
trying to conserve their precious town
however they are actually harming it.
Who is going to want to stay here
when they are not around and keep
this town as preserved as it is? Their
kin folk are going to sell out and get
out of this place because it has noth-
ing to offer them or their kids other
than a job at a respiratory equipment
store.
Trenton, a community with charac-
ter, that is a false statement if you ask
me. What kind of character does this
town have when the city leaders do
not listen to the youth of the commu-
nity? The future leaders of Gilchrist
County. All this stemming from the
4ity's decision to not reopen the Tren-
ton skate park that the city built for
the kids. When I was growing up they
called that an Indian giver. Maybe we
should have that as the new city slo-
gan. That is what they have done to
the youth of this town. Gave some-
thing to them and then took it away.
Was that the way the. board members;


and or the good ole boys of this town
were raised?
My name is Travis Willis and I am
a professional extreme sports athlete.
I make a living and provide for my
wife and daughter traveling around
the world performing my extreme
sport of choice, freestyle motocross.
Skate boarding is the sport of choice
for these kids and the City of Tren-
ton is crushing their dreams of ever
doing the same. They act like skate
boarding will get them nowhere. Has
anybody ever heard of Tony Hawk?
I am sure you have. He has made a
huge success, more than most from
skate boarding. And there are many
more like him.
Why not give these kids the same
chance. Instead they want to keep
them from skate boarding anywhere
in the city and discriminate against it,
sounds prejudice to me.
First and foremost I think the peo-
ple in Trenton need to thank Com-
missioners Randy Rutter and Marcia
Hellams for getting behind the kids
and voting on reopening this park.
They will always have my vote for
office.
Not only will this park cater to the
skate boarders but will be a social
place for all kids to go and hang out
with friends. They have nothing to do
here and it is not just the skate board-
ers, it is all the kids. Most of the kids

Lives: Trenton for the last 10

Family: Wife of 39 years (and of-

Julie and Derek; three grandchil-
dren, Trevor, Emilie and Rebeca
Works: As a chiropractor for 25

Pros of your job: I'm able to help

Hobbies: Fishing is number one,
bicycling, kite flying, rod repair,.
gardening and scalloping.
Something not many people
know about you: I used to do a
night fishing trip in the Florida

way.


or a good ole boy. It is 2008 people
not 1908.
Now for the other two board mem-
bers Tim Kinsey and Mayor Thig-
pen, they disagreed. I have attended
all the meeting ever since this started
and cannot believe after all this they,
have the courage to tell the kids to
their face they oppose the idea.
I just want to know now who is re-
ally behind the decision making for
this town. And if the people of Tren-
ton know that the people voted into
office are denying the youth of this
city after months of debating with all
the kids in attendance. There have
been more kids at the meetings than
concerned citizens.
How does a decision get made
when there is not a full board and the
majority of the people at the meeting
are for it? We have not had one single
person at any meeting who opposed
the idea of reopening the skate park
other than Tim Kinsey and Major
Thigpen.
However, we have had tremendous
support, from letters submitted to the
paper, and people attending the meet-
ing that had no idea what was going
on. Here is an example, I do not re-
call her name but there was a lady
who stood up in one of the meetings
who was there on a different matter
and said she is 80 something years
old and has lived here all her life.
She said that' tie council needs to do
something for the .youth ,of. Trenton,
that there is nothing for them here.
The meeting then broke out into a
huge applause obviously agreeing
with her.
What seems to be the problem? I
ask that everybody in the city who
.stands behind the kids of Trenton to
please contact me, write in express-
ing their thoughts, or call the mayor.
And if there are any of these so called
good ole boys who have the courage
to call me and give me their side of
the story as to if they support or deny
the idea of giving the kids something
to do around here please do so.
I am a dreaam chaser and have
already accomplished one of my
dreams. Now I have a new drive for
the youth of Trenton. I do not have
lots of land or lots of cows but like
these kids I have a lot of heart. And
the way I was raised heart is every-
thing.

Jehovah God
(Kent Heaton)


"'To whom then will you liken Me that I would be his
equal?' says the Holy One. 'Lift up your eyes on high
and see who has created these stars, the one who leads
forth their host by number, He calls them all by name;
because of the greatness of His might and the strength
of His power, not one of them is missing'" (Isaiah
40:25-26). How we view Jehovah God is how we submit
to Him. If He is nothing more than a saintly white haired
man sitting on a golden throne, we do not know Jehovah
God. If we view Him only as a terrible vengeful God of
wrath and destruction, we do not know Jehovah God.
What can we liken Him to? What is in the language of
man that can fully describe the complete nature of
Jehovah God? How can we begin to cross the threshold of
understanding to one who calls every star by name and
not one of them is missing? The best attempt man can
find to picture Jehovah God to mortal man is the Bible -
no other book can even measure in the smallest degree.
Contained within this wonderful book is the grandest of
pictures'of Jehovah God.
His power spoke and the world was created (Genesis
1). He gave law to man that was clear and without
contradiction yet man disobeyed (Genesis 2,3). In the
darkest moment of man's creation Jehovah God showed
mercy by offering a sacrifice for the sin of man (Genesis
3:15; Galatians 3:16). The sacrifice for sin was His only
begotten Son (John 3:1-21). "By common confession,
great is the mystery of godliness: He who was revealed
in the flesh, was vindicated in the Spirit, seen by angels,
proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world,
taken up in glory" (1 Timothy 3:16).


King David wrote that Jehovah God is "full of
compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in
mercy and truth" (Psalms 86:15). He showed His
compassion upon the world in saving Noah and seven-
others (Genesis 6-9). His longsuffering is measured by the
steps of the children of Israel through the wilderness
wanderings. The truth of Jehovah God is established in the
promises carried out to Israel; in blessing and in cursing
(Deuteronomy 28-30).
Paul wrote: "Behold then the kindness and severity of
God; to those who fell, severity, but to you, God's
kindness, if you continue in His kindness; otherwise you
also will be cut off" (Romans 11:22). There is a side of
Jehovah God that is filled with wrath. He destroyed the
world (Genesis 6); wiped out the cities of the plain
including Sodom and Gomorrah (Genesis 19); punished
the rebellious Israelites at Kadesh (Numbers 14:26-38);
gave laws that were punishable by death (Leviticus
19,20,24); destroyed the nations' of Egypt, Assyria,
Babylon and the cities of Babylon, Nineveh, Tyre and
Jerusalem.
The Bible is filled with stories of Jehovah God's wrath
upon disobedience and His mercy to those who follow
righteousness. This character has not changed for man
today. He remains a God of mercy and judgment. His
judgment today is against all ungodliness (Romans 1:18)
and yet His mercy is given to those who obey Him
(Ephesians 2:1-10). To whom can we liken Jehovah God
of the Bible? His majesty is far above the mind of man
and yet we are challenged to embrace the Creator of this
world in all His goodness and severity. Thank you Father.

Move Over Florida!
The Florida Highway Patrol is
planning a statewide special multi-
agency enforcement operation June
23-29, 2008, called "Move Over
Florida!" which is designed to create
a safer working environment for our
troopers, police officers, deputies,
and other emergency workers.
The Florida Highway Patrol has
asked each Sheriff and Police Chief
in the state to participate in this im-
portant program, as we work togeth-
er, dedicating all possible resources
to make a real impact. This operation
will be similar to the annual Click It
or Ticket campaign, but will concen-
trate on Move Over Law violators.
For the Move Over Florida! en-
forcement wave, each -agency is
asked to take the appropriate en-
forcement action in order to educate
motorists. FHP's long-range plan is
to establish an annual enforcement
wave that is held the same week ev-
ery summer. Ultimately, we hope to
see a real impact that increases safety
for our law enforcement officers and
other emergency workers, shows a
significant decrease in the number of
citations issued, and an increase in
motorist compliance with the Move
Over Law.
We continue to have too many
"close calls" out on the highway
with those motorists who either are
not aware of the law or are not pay-
ing attention as they pass by emer-
gency workers parked on the side of
the roadway with emergency lights
flashing. On multiple lane roadways,
motorists are required to move over
to the adjacent lane when it is- safe to
do so before passing beside the emer-
gency vehicle. On two-lane road-
ways, motorists are required to slow
down to at least 20 mph below the
posted speed limit. The emergency
workers are there to protects, so we
need to protect them.
A violation of the Move Over law
is considered a moving violation. The
fine varies in each county depend-
ing on court costs; however the fine
in Gilchrist County is $115.50 with
3-points assessed on the driver's re-
cord.

By Cindy Jo Ayers


Today we received an obit for Mrs.
Lois Braswell of Chiefland. I have
fond memories of Miss Lois and her
Country Store which operated for
many years in the community where
I grew up outside of Chiefland.
Miss Lois' store was just down
the road a short ways from where
Carter's Store is located today on
Highway 345 about seven miles from
Chiefland.
I remember going to the old wood-
en store as a child and my father buy-
ing me little Cokes which came in
those 8 ounce bottles.
Back in the day about 45 years ago
Braswell's Country Store was the
hub of the Curryville farming com-
munity. I can remember standing on
my tip toes to see into her old an-
tique wooden and glass candy case.
I would spend at least ten minutes
or so picking out penny candy from
what seemed at the time to be a giant
selection. With my Coke in hand my
father would usually give me a dime
and I could spend the entire amount
on penny candy. Miss Lois seemed
to have endless patience with all the
community kids as they made their
selection of candy. I remember you
could buy 4 or 5 kisses for one cent.
Peppermint was 2 or 3 pieces for a
penny. Anyway, by the time the dime
was spent we had a brown candy bag
brimming with candy.
Back in those days we did not have
Cokes at home only tea, coffee and
water. So when you made a trip to the
store it was a big deal to buy a soft
drink and candy.
I remember Miss Lois using her
electric meat saw to cut up pork for
the families that brought their home
butchered pork or beef into the store.
She also sold long rolls of bologna
that she would slice and sell by the
pound. Back then I remember that
the bologna tasted just heavenly. It
was the only kind of lunch meat that
we ever ate when we were young,
It was always a big deal to stop by,
'he store because you always knew.
you woulftf'kve a wairi IcoThe.'
The old wooden store had wooden
benches and tin signs nailed up that
advertised RC Colas and believe it or
not they also carried Moon Pies.,
I remember Miss Thelma Griffin
was our school bus driver and some
Friday she would stop the bus at the
store and all the kids would pile off


and run to the store laughing all the
way. Miss Lois would do her best to
wait on us all. She opened the caps
of Nehi strawberry, grape or orange
sodas for us. Some of us would buy
Cokes and fill the bottles with the
salty roasted peanuts. It was not
uncommon to see a kid with a dime
drink sharing it with a child who
didn't have any money for a drink.
Somehow I think we learned a lot
of life lessons at that old store and
riding the school bus. Back in those
days adults were more likely to let
children work out things among them-
selves and in the process we learned a
lot about dealing with people.
We didn't have convenience stores,
in fact we had never heard of. one but
every community in this area had a
country store. Every old tin roofed
store had a wooden bench or porch
swing out front so folks could sit and
visit. Most all of them had a screen
door because those old stores were
not air conditioned. Air or not ev-
eryone enjoyed gathering up there
and visiting with their neighbors. It
was surely a simpler place and time
that has for me become a cherished
memory.

stormy weather and hot conditions,
we will be meeting at Huckleberry's

the 18th. We will hold a 50/50 draw-
ing again to see who will be the lucky
winner.
We are still looking for some vol-
unteers to come in for a few hours

Welcome them to our community.
The Chamber helped host a group

plore anddlearn about the springs in
the area and what the area offers in

mote the Tri County area. They were
treated to breakfast at Homestead

B Que, lunch at the 19/98 Grill, and
dinner at the Lighthouse Restaurant
and Petrello's.
They enjoyed visiting Manatee

ning Historical Park, a boat trip up
the Suwannee River to Hart Springs,
then going to the Suwannee Valley

EMERGENCY
SERVICE


* I plan to implement a program. to
check on our homebound elderly
citizens. This program would allow a
deputy to stop and visit with the
elderly a few minutes a week just to
let them know that someone does
care.

* I believe to be a successful adminis-
trator you should have good moral
character in your home life as well as
in your professional life, and lead by
example.

*-I plan to reduce crime despite dwin-
dling revenues. To accomplish this, I
would put more deputies on patrol by
restructuring the administrative staff.
Having' fewer administrators would
save enough money to fund at least
two more deputy positions. One of my
top priorities is to see both ends of the
County protected and serviced equally.

* As Sheriff, I will continue to be a
good steward of citizen's tax dollars,
and only spend when there are needs,
not wants.

* I plan to focus on building better
relationships withthe citizens and
court system along with other local,
state and federal agencies.


* I plan to provide improved services
to the citizens of this county, while
being responsible in our utilization and
care of the resources entrusted to us.

* I will treat the men and women em-
ployed by the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Department fairly, and get
their input on matters that directly
affect them.

* I will form a citizen's advisory board
to help direct the Sheriff's Office for
the future, because I do not want the
citizens to forget we work for the
people, not the other way around.

* I will form a narcotics task force with
a few other small agencies, and fund it
with grant money and forfeiture dol-
lars, not tax dollars.

* I will re-establish the Sheriff's
Explorers program. This great pro-
gram gives our young people a first-
hand look at law enforcement, and
hopefully will encourage some to
become officers and pursue law
enforcement -as a career. With this
interest, I hope we would be able to
hire locally so our youth would no
longer have to leave home to start a
career. If necessary, I would fund this
program with my own personal
money.

* I will restructure the Sheriff
Department's resources to implement
a community policing strategy, that
would allow for Officers to get to know
the citizens they serve, while seeking
out those individuals who prey on our
society.

* Most importantly, I will treat all indi-
viduals fairly, with dignity, respect and
compassion.

Please contact me at 352-538-5823. I
will be happy to answer any questions
that you may have.

president.
Bailey has been in 4-H for six years
and has participated in the chicken,
rabbit, goat, garden, swine, beef,
home economics,-and wood working
projects. He has been a member of
livestock and dairy judging teams for
his club, and is an active participant
in the County 4-H Council.
Bailey says his favorite 4-H project
is the steer project because he loves
halter breaking, training, and working
with his steer. Bailey enjoys work-
ing with almost any type of animal,
and is currently raising a small flock
of pullets to add to his collection of
brown-egg laying hens.
Bailey likes his 4-H projects be-
cause he learns a lot of responsibility,
and he's also worked on perfecting
his public .speaking by doing lots of
4-H demonstrations. He's also en-
joyed 'making so many friends from
all over the county while participat-
ing in 4-H activities.
Bailey, along with his brother, sis-
ter, and cousins, have made some
beautiful wood working projects.


There are several varieties of blue-
berries that do well in the Tri-County
area.
Gulf Coast, Miramba, and Sharp
are large highbush varieties that do
well and ripen April thru June. Rab-
bit eye varieties, Alice Blue, Becky
Blue, and Climax do equally well and
come in around three weeks later.
Plant blueberries in full sun. They
require soil with a low ph of 4.5 to
5.0. Ground pine bark and sulphur
will help lower ph values.
Blueberries are drought resistant


Bailey won a 1st place rosette at

Gilchrist County School Board members receiving Certified Board
Rankin, Robert Clemons, Michelle Carter, and Cloud Haley.


Members of the Gilchrist County
School Board have' received the
honor of Certified Board.
The Board was recognized on
June 13, 2008, in Tampa, Florida,
at the Annual Spring Conference
sponsored by the Florida School
Boards Association. Gilchrist
County is one of only 13 school
boards in Florida (20 percent) to
receive this prestigious award.
To qualify for the Certified Board
distinction, .it is necessary for the
majority of the school board mem-
bers to earn the distinction of Certi-
fied Board Member by completing
96 hours of training in 12 curricular


areas and to maintain the distinction
with an additional 18 hours of train-
ing each year.
"Nothing happens without lead-
-ership. As Chairman of the School
Board I am especially pleased that
four out of five of our School Board
members are now certified and our
Board has received this distinction,"
Bob Clemons said. "This is a historic
mark for Gilchrist and a patter that
should continue. We may not always
have "A" schools or be an "A" school
district, but we are constantly striv-
ing for excellence. We expect our
students to be high achievers and ohr


staff to be highly qualified. It is im-
portant for our Board to set a pat-
tern of excellence."
The Certified Board award sig-
nifies a commitment by the school
board to actively pursue formalized
training for its members. This train-
ing instills knowledge and aware-
ness of key educational issues,
enabling the school board to pro-
vide expert leadership for students
and the community. School board
members who have earned the Cer-
tified Board Member. distinction
include Michelle Carter, Robert
"Bob" Clemons, Cloud Haley, and
Robert G. Rankin.

SVL 12U team headed to

state tournament


This past weekend, the SVL 12U
team won the double-elimination
Large District Tournament held in
Live Oak. In game one on Friday af-
ternoon, SVL beat.host Live Oak by
a score of 6-2. The team had to battle
the entire way through the game and
was anchored by the pitching of Jus-
tin Crown and Stephen Smith, both
of whom threw three innings.
In game two on Saturday morn-
ing, the team faced Union County
and won 8-3. Crown and Smith both
'pitched three innings in this game
also, but the offense was powered by
Mill Lang, who had two key hits, and
Daniel Cobb, who had a key single
t that led to a run. Additionally, Clay
e Welch, Jordan Hewett, Kyle Wiggins
e and Ozie Parrish executed superb
a bunts that kept pressure on the de-
fense and led to key runs that sparked
the team.
In game three, the team faced Union
County again on Sunday morning.
Union defeated Live Oak in the los-
er's bracket championship which set
up a rematch with SVL. However,
Union would have to beat SVL twice
to win the championship since SVL
was undefeated in the tournament.
d In this game, Union came out strong
e and defeated SVL 10-1,.which set up

the experiences children have are
positive, frequent and varied because
it is this early stimuli that determine

This is the time period to get children

as you can. Use simple books with

the championship game for Sunday
afternoon.
In the championship game, SVL got
a run in the top of the first inning on a
towering home run by Justin Crown,
the first of two he would hit in this
game. However, Union scrapped to-
gether a run in the bottom of the first
inning, tying the game. In. the third
inning, SVL scored again after Smith
bunted for a single, stole second,
and then scored on a perfect bunt by
Kyle Wiggins. The teams continued
battling, and SVL. went ahead 3-1
on Crown's second homerun of the
afternoon. SVL then showed why
they are champions as Wiggins had
to replace Smith on the mound in the
top of the fourth inning, and pitched
two superb innings, although he had
only pitched four innings in the last 8
games. The fifth inning efided on a
defensive highlight for SVL as Dan-
iel Cobb, the centerfielder, made a
stunning catch and then threw to first
base to make a double play, ending
Union's rally. As the teams entered
the sixth inning, SVL was ahead 4-2,
but Union had its best hitters com-
ing to bat. Crown replaced Wiggins
on the mound, as Wiggins had used
all of his pitching eligibility. Show-
ing true grit and determination under,

talk about them. Remember that the
point is to enjoy books together, not
to read every word and get to the last
page. Each child will develop in his
or her own way. As your child mas-
ters one book or concept, introduce a
new one that is a little more challeng-
ing. Allow the child's preferences to
guide your choices whenever pos-
sible. You want reading to be fun and
exciting, not a chore. Remember too,
that children learn through repetition,
they will want you to read their fa-
vorite stories again and again.
Reading can open the world and all
of its wonders to these young, hungry
minds. It can set them on a path to a
successful, fulfilling life of learning.
Don't wait, start now because a mind

pressure, Crown proceeded to strike
out the first two batters before yield-
ing a single. The runner stole second,
and third base, and then came home,
on a wild pitch making the score 4-3.
Crown then "manned-up" and threw,
a hard fastball on the outside comer.
The batter hit a sharp grounder to
second baseman Cody Ellinger wh-
stayed in front of the ball and made/
a strong throw to first base to secure
the victory for SVL.
The team resumes play July 10th
in the Large State Tournament in'
Jacksonville Beach. This SVL 12U:
team is considered one of the six best
all-star teams in North Florida and'
has defeated teams that have a much:

lect players. Gilchrist County can be

Elect Daniel SLAUGHTER for Gilchrist County Sheriff

Recently, as I have visited with citizens throughout Gilchrist County, I am often asked about my career in
Law Enforcement and about my desire to be your next Sheriff. To this question, I have found my answer an
easy one. Any person who truly cares about a Law Enforcement career does it to serve a cause greater than
one's self, to serve and protect is the motto we live by. I explain that often, until you have become the victim
of a crime, most individuals do not know what services we provide or the level of expertise we p.ossess. I
remind them that this service does come at a. cost, through sacrifices that both we and our families face.
J However, I express that the true reward of a public servant is knowing that we have helped our fellow citizen
in difficult situations and in a time of special need. I simply ask that we remember this attention to our duty,
as many times it can be easy for others to criticize or cast blame during election cycles.

Questions such as this reinforce my desire of public service, and add continued excitement about
becoming your next Sheriff. I believe that being a leader is not a role but an action. I plan to lead the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office by my example and will empower all the men and women of the Sheriff's
Office to perform their duties to the highest standards of excellence. I will settle for nothing less than to be
professional, efficient, effective and community involved. My goal is to establish a Sheriff's Office that all

In the 27th year since its found-
ing, Victory Christian School on
June 7, 2008 held its 20th gradu-
ation ceremony. The annual "Pag-
eant of Learning" was a regal af-
fair.
The Spring House Lodge at Otter
Springs Park in Trenton was deco-
rated in the majestic school col-
ors of red, white and blue. As the
graduating seniors led by Welch
bagpiper, Mr. Robin Hendrickson,
made their way around the lodge
porch in procession and into the
presence of nearly 200 in the au-
dience waiting with great anticipa-
tion. The people were greeted with
the wonderful sight of the 2008
graduating class in their beautiful
attire of white caps and gowns with
red or blue honor cords draped over
their shoulders.

tion of certificates to Kindergarten
through 11-grade students by VCS
Regents Council Presidents, Rever-
end Daniel and Mrs. Patricia Eberly.
Then the highlight of the day occurred
with the awarding of high school di-
plomas by school directors Reverend
Carl and Dr. Geneva Cornwell.
The following Florida VCS stu-
dents were the honorees: Brooke
Brown, Live Oak; Vhalyn Bush-Ra-

Bell; Laina Johnston, O'Brien; Jared
Kramme, Branford; Valedictorian
Ryan Kole, Brandon; Sara Leon-
bruno, Trenton; Ryan Meredith, Lake
City; Michael Miller, Lutz; and Jared
Shari, New Port Richey.
Once the photo session ended and
the seniors returned to their seats,
three presentations were given. The


first, a song in American sign lan-
guage by senior, Laina Johnston;
the second, a Power Point produced
by senior, Sara Leonbruno, a de-
piction of photos from babyhood
to teen years of each graduate; and
lastly, a video film was shown of
the 25 plus years of the school's
history. Delightful and spontaneous
applause as approval was given by
the audience. The program ended
with prayer followed by a reception
of cake and punch.
All glory and honor goes to Cre-
ator God for the wonderful dedica-
tion of all the parents, as well as
each and every person who con-
tributed something in making this
a memorable celebration for the
home-schooled students of Victory

Heart Matters
Good ole' summertime! The
weather is hot and school is out...so
what are your kids doing? Swim-
ming? Mowing grass? Reading
books? Riding bikes? Not according
to recent studies...they are glued to
the tube, as summer brings a 155%
spike in children's TV viewing. This
has become such a concern that last
August the American Academy of
Pediatrics published a report identi-
fying our children's TV habits as "a
national health hazard, contributing
to kids' obesity, and serving them an
unhealthy portion of murder, con-
sequence-free sex and commercial
messages every year."
A quick flip through the channels
confirms the findings of this report...
not so many years ago American mo-
rality would not have stood for the
things that are freely flowing on TV
today: promiscuity, coarse jokes,
blatant disrespect on every level:
children to parents, teachers and
the elderly, men to women and vice
versa, the betrayal of friendships, not
to mention the sex and violence.. .all
bathed in crude humor. What in the
world are we watching... and do we
really think that these "unhealthy


portions" will not affect our thoughts
and actions, as well as those of our
children?
The Bible records King David's
words in Psalm 101:3, I will set
no wicked thing before mine eyes."
The word for wicked in the original
Hebrew language actually means
"worthless, good for nothing; unprof-
itable." In his commentary on the
Bible, Matthew Henry explains the
verse like this: "... we must see that
what we set our eyes upon be right
and good and not any forbidden fruit,
and that we never seek that which
we cannot have without sin. It is the
character of a good man that he shuts
his eyes from seeing evil." David
was living proof of the danger we
place ourselves in looking at what
can bring no good. He is infamous
for looking at the forbidden fruit of
another man's wife... that whiph he
could not have without sin. (His story
is found in 2 Samuel, chapter 11) We
also find from his life that good inten-
tions are not enough... there must be
self-control and discipline.
The good news is that all TV is
not bad.. .in fact, there is some fun,
entertaining and even educational
programs, but we have to be inten-
tional in our choices for our children
and for ourselves. That said, quality
does not sanction quantity... make a
plan this summer to get off the couch
and invest in life.. .check out your lo-
cal library, the children's programs
offered by many area churches, and
enjdy the outdoors. Keep the TV
viewing in balance for a healthier
family.. .physically and spiritually...
because their hearts matter.

Carter, Martha Cook, Joe and Marie

Smith, Jimmy and Beverly Smith,
Glenda Stalnaker, Doris Standridge,
Rosemary Taylor, Elizabeth Watson,
Rose Williamson, Bill Williamson,
escort; Amos Miller, driver.
Saturday, day one. Excitement
filled the air as we gathered at Bell
High School and commenced load-
ing our supplies and luggage. What
a way to start out on an 8-day tour,
15 minutes ahead of schedule. Bill
Williamsn, pur es grt, began ,pur,
day with prayer forqur safe travel
and God's 'blessings on our group.
Breakfast found us at the Golden
Corral in Jacksonville.


Our first day was spent getting ac-'
quainted with 14 new members and
catching up with "what's new" with
the other 41. Lots of bus activities
kept us occupied while we made our
way to Statesville, North Carolina.
The K and W Cafeteria provided us
with an excellent dinner. Everyone
was ready for our night's lodging at
Sleep Inn.
Sunday, day two. Cedell Fletcher
started our day with prayer for the
group and we were on our way. Joe
Elder, our honorary chaplain, ren-
dered a devotion on the different
people who had went over the Ni-
agara Falls seeking wealth and fame.
Joe Pointed out our wealth and fame
comes through faith in Jesus Christ
as Savior.
Jimmy Sheffield directed our
group in singing all the old familiar
hymns. What a way to praise God go-
ing down the highway at 75 miles an
hour! Bill, our escort, presented all
the ladies with a bag of chocolates for
Mother's Day, all 38 of them.
Upon arriving in Grove City, Penn-
sylvania, we headed for the Premier
Outlet Mall for some serious shop-
ping, if only the weather would have
cooperated. It was cold, windy and
rainy. Our dinner was at Hoss's Fam-
ily Steak and Seafood House, which
was near the Comfort Inn where we
lodged for the night.


Monday, day three. Our day started
off in prayer by Melvin Mock, then
we would make it to Niagara Falls,
USA, by lunch.
Power Vista Generator Plant was
our first stop. This plant transforms
energy from the river into some of
the nation's cleanest and least expen-
sive electricity.
Prospect Point was our next stop.
The point in the prime viewing area
for the American Falls and rapids.
After seeing "Niagara: Legends of
Adventures," it gave us a new per-
spective on this great natural marvel
which God gave us to enjoy.
We had time for a photo session on
Goat and Three Sisters Island. It of-
fered a unique view of the upper rap-
ids and the river racing to the falls.
Our great BIG adventure came right
after our dinner at Bob Evans Res-
taurant. Yep! You guessed it. Going
through customs! A new experience
for most of us since 9-11. When a
certain lady in our group passed cus-
Stoms, we wanted to shout hallelujah
praise the Lord! You see, she had
left her birth certificate home on the
kitchen table, but was able to get a
faxed copy when we arrived at Power
Vista.
Hampton Inn on the Canadian side
became our home for the next three
nights.
Tuesday, day four. Bill Williamson


To My Fellow Residents of Gilchrist County:w
I would like to express my most sincere appreciation for
your calls, words of encouragement and well wishes while
seeking to obtain the School Board District 4 position
within the Gilchrist County School System. It has been "
my desire to serve in this capacity for some time now and
your confidence in my ability to help make decisions '
regarding the future of our schools is highly valued.
I have always been and will continue to be a worker. I
grew up watching my parents, as well as all of my
grandparents work very hard. As a college student, I
worked full time as a secretary to finance my education. It
took me twice as long as it, did others, but I knew that I had accomplished it. My parents and grandparents were
also tremendous examples for me not only regarding a good work ethic, but also regarding my spiritual life as
well. I am a Christian and thank God for all of the tremendous blessings he provides for me and my entire family
on a daily basis.
I realize with the current state of our economy, there will be many hard decisions regarding our schools, the
employees and the students. Please know that I value each and every opinion and solicit your input. Although
they may be different from mine, I still value the thoughts and concerns of others.
Bruce and I have four children who attend school here in our county. I see each and every day what custodians,
lunchroom workers, bus drivers, administrators, guidance counselors, office workers, para professionals and
especially teachers do to offer the BEST public education for ALL children. Please know your efforts are not
taken lightly. To devote your life's work and career to education and our youth is so amazing. Thank you for
what you do day in and day out.
Gilchrist County is such an amazing place to call home. Having lived away for seven years while Bruce served
in the U.S. Army, we could hardly wait to return home and raise our children in what we feel is the greatest place
on earth. Our schools are tremendous, but we should all strive to reach higher levels of greatness. To ever
become statue quo would simply be selling our children short. They are our future and each and every one of
them has the ability to grow, learn and become such amazing members of our society. I am very humbled to be
a part of that most honorable duty.
Again, from the depths of my heart, thank you very much. If you should ever need to call on me, please feel
free; our phone has always been and will continue to be accessible. Home: 386-935-4423 or Cell:
352-494-8070.
Most Sincerely,
Julie C. Thomas


What's A Home Without Termites? Concrete Block Construction!


S(



prayed for our safety today and then
it was off to the "Journey Behind the
Falls." Adorning raincoats, we went 1
deep below and behind the heart of
Niagara. We stood at the edge where
the mighty Horseshoe Falls tumbled 1
from 13 stories above. The sound
was like thunder and the sight was
awe-aspiring.
"Maid of the Mist" was our next
stop. Don't go on this ride if you don't
want to get wet. Raincoats didn't
help much. Just ask Karen Philman
how she enjoyed the ride. We were
so proud of her.
After drying off, we made our way
to the world's largest floral clock.
About 15,000 plants that bloom from
early spring to the first frost compose
the 40-foot diameter of this working
clock.
The highlight of the evening was
dinner at the Skylon Tower Revolv-
ing Restaurant. The restaurant over-
looks the falls 774 feet above the
base of the falls. We returned after
dark to view the falls when they were
illuminated.
Wednesday, day five. Billy Roberts
offered up prayer for God's protec-
tion today before embarking on our
way to the Butterfly Conservatory.
We walked among some 2,000 free,
flying butterflies in a lush, rain-forest
setting. What an experience.
At the White Water Walk, we rode
the elevator 125 feet below to the riv-
er. We strolled along the boardwalk
at the very edge of one of the world's
wildest stretches. We marveled at the
relentless power and beauty of nature
and to see how deep and narrow Great
Gore God had created. Sorry folks,
no white water rafting allowed.
This afternoon we followed the
scenic route along the river to Ni-
agara on The Lake, the first capital of
Upper Canada. Lots of quaint shops
and flower lined streets.
On our way back to Niagara Falls,
we stopped at Picard Peanuts Ltd.
Did you know we came all the way
to Canada so we could buy some
Georgia peanuts? Picard's was a neat
place to spend some money and that
we did.
Some of our ladies didn't care for
the critters (snakes, lizards, lions,
etc.) who joined us for dinner at the
Rain Forest Caf6, but the food was
delicious and large servings. No one
left hungry.
Thursday, day six. Jimmy Sheffield
prayed for safety today and thanked
God for allowing us to make this trip.
This morning we had to leave Ni-
agara Falls behind. By lunch we had
made our way to Volant, Pennsylva-
nia. This was a small town where lo-
cal Amish folks sold their homemade
products. We had time to eat and of
course shop.
Evening found us in the mountains
of Summersville, West Virginia. We
had reservations at Shoney's for din-
ner. Rosemary Taylor had friends
who lived in the area to join her for
dinner. They even brought her some
of their good ole West Virginia corn-
bread mix. Best Western Inn provided
our lodging for the evening.
Friday, day seven. Before getting
on the road again, Joe Elder asked
God to bless and take care of us to-
day. We stopped at the Tamarack, one
of West Virginia's popular spots for
tour groups. This is a good place for a
comfort break, shopping and eating.
Mt. Airy was our destination for
lunch. We had time to eat one' of
Andy Griffith fired pork chop sand-
wiches from Snappy's. We were able
to stroll the same streets that Andy
walked when he was growing up in
Mt. Airy.
A very knowledgeable step-on-
guide, Charles Vaughn, took us to
all the places mentioned on the Andy
Griffith Show. Golden Corral pro-
vided our dinner and Quality Inn our
lodging.
Saturday, day eight. Our escort,
Bill, lead the group in prayer, thank-
ing God for his many blessings dur-
ing the week, then it was all the way

River. Left to right: Amos Miller, driver; Rose Williamson, assistant;

to Bell today! We had lots of bus
activities to keep us occupied be-
:ween our meal and comfort breaks.
Yep! We arrived back home ahead of
schedule.
Special thanks to everyone for be-
ing so supportive and punctual. Also
to Marie Elder for the sunshine bags
she made for bingo prizes and Kath-
.een McElroy for sharing her videos.
Bill and Amos were very appre-
ciative of the money given them for
their joint effort in making this tour
so enjoyable. We will be going to
Nashville/Louisville on October 11
hru 18, 2008. We invite you to join
us if you like good Christina atmo-

Day care plants garden and shares
vegetables with neighbors


Because of a vicious weed problem
we brought in with our top soil, this
is the first year we have been able
to plant our new garden. Mr. Jason
DeMartino, who is with Smith and
Sons in Lake Butler, came in and
treated the soil. We are happy to re-
port it worked.
In our garden we grew zucchini,


yellow squash, Roma beans, cu-
cumber, and peas. We also have a
large perennial herb garden grow-
ing. Along with all these varieties we
grew a massive Zinnia garden that
the butterflies enjoy along with us.
The children enjoyed sharing with,
neighbors and friends.


Children from Kathy's All Things Day care and Learning Center are
shown visiting one of our next door neighbors to share vegetables we
grew in our garden. Ms. Mary Sutton is shown with (back to front)
Rhett R., Melonie P., Daniel S., Janice N., Alex B., Bridget W., Sum-
mer F., Chris S., Kaden C., Delaney S., Devyn B., Scharma H., Hailee
H., Emma H., Tristan T., Benjamin G., Heidi C., and Ms. Kathy.

Golfers help raise
funds for
Harmony
Pregnancy and
Resource Center
The, Sixth, Annu.al, Golf Tourna-
menat, benefitipngr~t Harmony-) Peg-.
nancy and Resource Center (HPRC)
took place recently at the Chiefland
Golf and Country Club.
This year's tournament was dedi-
cated to the memory of Mr. Paul
McElroy, a great supporter of the
center and an avid golfer. Mr. McEl-
roy had widely promoted the annual
event during the entire six years of its
existence but passed away just one
week prior to the tournament.
According to HPRC director, Lin-
da Lemery, the event was generously
supported by area businesses which
provided hole sponsorships as well as
gift donations for door prizes. "With-
out all these great people, along with
24 teams of golfers, we would not
have had such a successful event. We
'had golfers travel from as far as Ala-
bama and South Carolina. The tour-
nament just gets better every year,"
Mrs. Lemery stated..
The event was held on Armed Ser-
vices Day and a patriotic theme was
carried out for the day, remembering
those who served and those who cur-
rently serve our country to preserve
the high cost of freedom.
First place was awarded to the team
of Matt Tyson, James Goins, and Kyle
Pendarvis with a score of 60. Second
place was awarded to the team of
Doug King, Matt Munksgard, and
Robert Hinds, scoring 65. Third place
winners were Bill Wade, Bud Long,
and Jim McConnell with a 67. Other
tournament winners included Robert
Hinds for longest drive, closest to the
pin was Daniel Garnett, Jeff Edison
for the longest putt, and Steve Garnett
for the straightest drive.
Volunteer organizers for the event
were Paul McElroy, Rodney Wade,
and Kent Welborn. Jerry Quincey
prepared the barbecue. Ladies and
youth of the First Baptist Church of
Chiefland prepared and served side
dishes for the luncheon. Sonya and
Derek Schmidt of Chiefland provided
photography.
Mrs. Lemery stated, "We are very
grateful to those who have support-
ed us through this tournament. The
funds that have been raised enable
us to continue to provide services for
those with unplanned pregnancies,
provide education about pregnancy
and heighten awareness of healthy
lifestyles and relationships."
Harmony Pregnancy Resource
Center, located in Chiefland provides
free pregnancy testing and support
for women in need. The Center also
maintains a collection of maternity
and baby clothes and supplies. Vol-
unteers .are provided with training.
The Pregnancy and Resource Center
is funded by offerings from our as-
sociational churches. For more infor-
mation contact Linda Lemery, Center
Director @ 352-493-7773.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


It is amazing what a company's
shareholders will put up with. Step
back to January 15, 2006, to the 2006
North American International Auto
Show. General Motors unveils a new '
Chevrolet Camaro concept muscle
car. GM had spent seven months de-
veloping the 400-horsepower vehicle
in an effort to challenge Ford's.Mus-
tang.
One small problem...the country's
attention was riveted on oil and gaso-
line prices and fuel efficient hybrids.
Meanwhile, GM was spending pre-
pious research dollars on 400 horse-
power gas guzzlers. We will not even
discuss the Hummer, a business de-
cision that escapes all rational think-
ing.
Here we are today and Rick
Wagoner, chief executive of GM,
announces that GM is closing four
plants that make trucks and SUVs
because of lagging demand. That
announcement came on the heels of
GM's announced $39 billion loss in
2007, a year when GM's share price
fell 19 percent. And Wagoner? His
pay rose 64 percent to $15.7 million.
Meanwhile, if you are expecting
the energy situation to return to "nor-
mal" at some distant point in time,
you are fooling yourself. Expensive
energy is here to stay. The only re-,
markable thing is that it took so long
to occur. Drilling protected offshore
sites and the Arctic National Wildlife
Refuge will not solve the problem.
It would take 7 to 10 years for new
deep ocean wells to come online.
Furthermore, the Energy Information
Administration estimates that drill-
ing in the ANWR would trim 1 to 3.5
cents off a gallon of gas...by 2027.
Keep in mind that the United
States has just 3 percent of all the
world's oil reserves. What is even
worse is that Alaskan oil is sold'
abroad. Alternative and renewable
energy sources along with reduced
demand are the only sensible routes
away from foreign bondage. Higher
energy prices are forcing us in that
direction. Gasoline demand fell 1.4
percent in May, as measured by de-
liveries, sending year-to-date demand
for gasoline down by 1 percent; a de-
cline of that nature has not occurred
since 1991.
The political rhetoric on the sub-
ject of oil prices is mostly hot air. If
you want the price of crude to come
down, we need a stronger dollar. Oil
is priced in dollars. A stronger dol-
lar means more oil for fewer-dollars:-
'Yes;'dtr16'ngr dollar alsi methens that


exports will decrease, imports will
likely increase and corporate profits
abroad will decline. Too bad.
Wall Street and politicians have
a lot in common. Both will tell you
want you want to hear. For a true
picture, you have to do your own
research. Nonetheless, there is con-
siderable money to be made by in-
vesting in oil related stocks. One of
my favorites, and a company I wrote
about a year ago, is Schlumberger.
Schlumberger assists in the loca-
tion and development of oil and gas
reserves. Not only is it the largest
among its ilk, it's also the most geo-
graphically diverse and technologi-
cally proficient.
Furthermore, current drilling proj-
ects are based on profitability models
using natural gas and oil prices that
are far below current levels. That
means there is considerable down-
side protection accorded investors.
When I wrote about the company
a year ago, it was trading at $85 per
share, as compared to today's price of
$105. OnApril 18, Schlumberger re-
ported first-quarter revenues of $6.29
billion as compared to $5.46 billion
in the first quarter of 2007. Earnings-
per-share from continuing operations
was $1.06 per share, as compared to
$0.96 per share a year ago.
The intrinsic value of the shares
using a discounted earnings model
is $127 per share, assuming a 15.85
percent earnings growth rate and a
15 percent discount rate. A free cash
flow to the firm model yields an in-
trinsic value of $144 per share. My
earnings estimate for 2008 is $5.90,
with a 12-month price target of $124
per share, for an annual gain of 18
percent. The current'dividend yield is
0.84 percent.

Governor Crist
promotes screening tests
for colon health
Governor Chatlie ,Crist today eif-"
couraged all Floridians over age 50
to begin screening tests for colorec-
tal cancer and to continue getting
screened at regular intervals as rec-
ommended by their physicians. Ac-
cording to the Centers for Disease
Control, screening tests can detect
colon cancer early, when treatment
for cancer is likely to be most suc-
cessful.
"Medical science has made amaz-
ing advances during recent decades,
and preventive health screenings and
tests are the number-one way to de-
tect cancer and other diseases early,"

Governor Crist said. "I encourage all
Floridians to learn more about what
health screenings are appropriate for
their age and condition."
Earlier today, Governor Crist un-
derwent the procedure, administered
by Dr. Joseph A. Boulay Jr., and
received a clean bill of health. He
reminded Floridians about the Web
site designed to assist Floridians in
search of accurate, trusted, and un-
biased health care information. The
Web site, www.FloridaHealthFinder.
gov, provides information on more
than 1,600 diseases and conditions,
lists of health care facilities, informa-
tion about insurance, medications, a
variety of consumer publications and
much more.
According to the Centers for Dis-
ease Control, screening tests for
colorectal cancer are important be-
cause people who have polyps or
colorectal cancer sometimes don't
have symptoms, especially at first.
This means that someone could have
polyps or cancer and not know it,
which is why having a screening test
is so important to saving lives.

new projects were started. Carol Erby
brought her quilt top in for us to see.
It has 3097 pieces and 88 different

by hand and maybe it will be ready
for the fair next year.
Alice Mae Haire has quilted her
Turkey quilt and it hangs at the mu-
seum. She has done a great job and
now plans to make another one using
different colors. If it doesn't sell, it
will go to the fair in Tampa.


Pat Osowiecki helped our new
member Pat Cremeons to cut out a
quilt top. She has never made a quilt
and we know it will be fine when she
pieces it.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and we planted two Florida Cran-
berry bushes, mowing was done and
so much more. Thanks Lancaster.
Lunch was so good with turkey
loaf, spaghetti, fried eggplant, toma-
toes, peas and lots of desserts, all so
good.

Bits and Pieces from The Joyful Heart
Quilters and Crafters of North Gilchrist


Well, hurricane season is upon us,
school will be out by the time you
read this, blueberry bushes and wild
blackberries are ripe for the picking
if you can beat the squirrels, deer and
birds to them and I'm already way too
hot. Looks like a long hot summer for
us Joyful Hearts and everyone else.
On Wednesday, May 28 we gath-
ered together for quilting, crafting
and our "Mad Hatters" luncheon.
The food, of course, was delightfully
delicious and the hats were creative,
beautiful, crazy and fun. There were
13 of us and we had a great time as
usual.
Our heart pillow project exceeded
our goal of 50. Elaine Nemeth was
able to take 78 to the hospital for
those undergoing breast cancer sur-
gery. She also took 13 of the cutest
tiny baby hats for preemies at North
Florida Regional. The hats were cro-
cheted by Myrle Gilkey and one was
cuter than the next. Elaine said the
nurses went wild over them. Myrle,
you are a blessing.
Oops, I made a mistake. In the last
article I said the "101 Dalmations"
quilt was given to a muscular dsy-
trophy patient. Well, it was not ex-


actly like it sounded. The quilt was
auctioned off at a fundraiser for Evan
Procko. The quilt's final bid was for
$2,000 and the person who bought it
then gave it to Evan. What a bless-
ing. And doesn't it make you stop
and realize that among all the gloom
and doom stories in the paper, on TV
and radio that the "unseen hand" is
still at work guiding us through this
troubled land.
Olga Knott donated an antique
quilt, that was in need of repair, to
the fundraiser and it brought in $140,
another blessing.
We are going to make 4th of July
tray favors for the Tri-County Nurs-
ing Home. We'll be starting this proj-
ect on Wednesday, June 11, so come
give us a hand.
There will be a "road trip" on Fri-
day, June 30. We are going to start
our Christmas project bibs at this
time in order to be sure we get them
completed in time for the holiday.
I saw Lera Townsend at church and
she is walking with a cane and driv-
ing. She can't make it on the 4th but
is hoping to be with us on the llth.
She is so appreciative for all the
cards, nots, a'nd -prayers .She looks,
great, another blessing.
Remember, we are now meet-
ing every Wednesday and while we
know you can't always every time we
want you to know you are loved and
missed.
'Til next time.

Making a Difference

In my travels as a Chairman of the Gilchrisf School Board, I
tell people I am from Gilchrist County and many of them will
comment to me, "You have a good school system there." Of
course they are right, but I have to smile because the legisla-
tors have worked very hard to make the educational delivery
system uniform throughout the entire state. We are funded
.through the Florida Education Finance Program
(www.firn.edu/doe/fefp/) in an attempt to give small districts
the same financial advantage as larger ones. In addition, the
state has established the Sunshine State Standards
(www.firn.edu/doe/menu/sss.htm) which all methods of
instruction must comply with and our Strategic Plan and
School Improvement Plans should reference. Even the meals
we serve must contain specific food groups.

So, what exactly is it that causes our school system to be su-
perior to another? Quite simply it is the people who serve.
We have solid schools in Gilchrist County. The educators who
work in our schools, as well as, the employees who cook, clean
and repair, drive the buses and serve in the district office are
the real strength of the system. Those who have served in
the past have built a firm foundation and have made a tremen-
dous difference in our students' performance.

I believe with my school finance and accounting background,
my classroom insight-via my wife Wanda, who has taught in our
county for 28 years, and suggestions from many of you,lI can
continue to make a meaningful contribution to the future of
our educational system. I have observed the difference a
School Board member can make if he/she is truly interested
in the people they serve.

I am uniquely qualified, have the knowledge and depth of ex-
perience about public schools that would be an asset to our
local School Board. I know I can work with others to help
make a difference if you will help re-elect me to serve.


Vote for Bob Clemons on August 26, the clear choice,
for School Board Member, District 2

Blueberries flourish at u-pick farm 2008-2009 budget improves care for


By Carrie A. Mizell
With a blue pail strapped to her
waist, Betty Owen of Trenton scoured
bushes swelling with ripe blueberries
last Friday in an effort to pick enough
berries to put in her freezer "to cook
with as the spirit moves her."
Though Owen lives just down the
road from Steph-Lo Farm, last week
marked the first time she had visited
the u-pick blueberry farm owned and
operated by Steve and Lois Solly.
"We've lived here 28 years and
this is the first time we've opened our
field to the public," Lois said. "I've
never seen as many berries on the
bushes as there are this year."
The Solly's purchased their prop-
erty off County Road 337 on SE 80th
Avenue in 1980 and originally plant-
ed 1,000 bare root blueberry plants
in 1986. Two years later, they put in
an additional 2,000 blueberry plants,
with each root planted five feet apart
and 12 feet between rows of 63 plants
per row.
Three varieties of blueberries now
flourish on their 15-acre farm: the
early blooming Bonita blueberries,
early ripening Becky Blue blueber-
ries and the heavy bearing Climax
blueberries.
The blueberries, which are grown
with no pesticides or fertilizers, are
drawing quite a crowd to Steph-Lo
Farm, Lois explained. When the field
first opened for the season two weeks
ago, Lois said she was surprised by
the number of blueberry enthusiasts
who came out to pick the first eve-
ning the field was open.
"Now is really the optimum time to
pick," Lois said. "The danger is if we
get a lot of rain at one time then the
blueberries will split and fall off the
bushes."


.At- ;


Lois Solly shows off a cluster of blueberries just waiting to be picked.


Visitors to the farm are offered a
free sample of blueberries prior to
picking, a glass of ice water, paper
towels and often a taste of blueberry
bread baked by Steve.
The field is open Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday from 5 p.m. to
8 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays
from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The evening
hours offer cooler temperatures to


Betty Owen picked blueberries at Steph-Lo Farm last Friday.

visitors. Lois tells visitors when they
call that picking blueberries at 7 p.m.
is just about ideal.
According to Lois, one young boy
braved the heat last weekend while
picking blueberries by soaking a pa-
per towel with ice water and placing
it on his head. The occasional drop-
lets of water falling from the paper
towel kept the boy cool as he walked
the rows picking from the blueberry
and blackberry bushes that mingle to-
gether amidst the peaceful field.
As Lois placed the blueberries that
Betty Owen and her, granddaughter
Sarah Taylor of Bell picked into an
antique baby scale to weigh, she and
Steve visited with their neighbor who
promised to come back again, after
she had picked all she could for the
day, chatted and got the recipe to
Steve's delicious blueberry bread.
"We ate a lot of our blueberries
raw," Betty Owen said. "They were
so good and sweet!"
The Solly's said they intend to
open their blueberry farm to the pub-
lic every year, but if visitors want to
pick fresh blueberries this summer
they better hurry! Call Steve or Lois
at 472-4740 for more information.

Jr., U.S. Navy Reserve (Ret.). "De-
spite the challenges of a lean budget
year, Governor Crist and the Florida
Legislature made a tremendous ef-
fort to ensure that Florida continues
to be a leader in providing services
to those who have honorably served
our nation."
The 2008-09 budget controls costs
and improves quality of care for
veterans residing in Florida's State
Veterans' Homes. It also enhances
education opportunities for children
and spouses of deceased or disabled
veterans.
The Fiscal Year 2008-09 budget
includes the following: Authorizes
the transfer of funding of $8.3 mil-
lion from contracted services to state
salaries and benefits, which enables
the Florida Department of Veterans'
Affairs to in-source certified nursing
assistants and food service workers
to establish a single staffing model
for the State Veterans' Homes Pro-
gram. Currently FDVA contracts
these positions at three of its homes.
Research indicates that the depart-
ment can better control costs and


provide a higher quality of care and
food to residents by having in-house
staff perform the services. Provides
$1.3 million for major repairs and
maintenance of buildings and fixed
equipment at Florida's State Veter-
ans' Homes. Provides an increase in
funding from $1.1 million to $1.9
million for Scholarships for Children

Veterans and Servicemembers.
The Florida Department of Veter-
ans' Affairs is a state agency respon-
sible for assisting, without charge,
Florida's veterans, their families and
survivors in improving their health

vides long-term health care services

and one assisted living facility.
