Kyle Ford


Bell teen


killed in


accident


last week
By Carrie A. Mizell
SThirty seconds of silence Monday
morning gave students at Bell High
School a chance to remember Kyle
Ford's happy nature and zeal for life
after the 15-year-old student died in
an accident last week.
The 10th grade student at Bell
High School died last Thursday from
critical injuries he received after re-
portedly turning his bicycle into the
path of minivan on County Road 340
last Tuesday.
A Hollywood, Fla. native, Kyle
had lived in Bell for the past nine
years. An avid Bell basketball player,
he dreamed of one day being an ar-
cheologist.
According to the Florida Highway
Patrol, Kyle Ford was traveling west
on County Road 340 just before 8:30
p.m. last Tuesday when he steered
his bicycle into the path of a Pontiac
minivan driven by Donald Wood, 52,
of High Springs.
The accident, which occurred less
than a mile east of NW 15th Avenue,
ejected Ford from his bicycle, report-
ed Cpl. R.W. Howard of the Florida
Highway Patrol.
Wood was also traveling west on
County Road 340 when he attempted
to pass Ford on his bicycle. For an
unknown reason, Cpl. R.W. Howard
stated that Ford turned into the path
of the minivan causing the front of
vehicle to hit the left side of the bi-
cycle.
Ford who was not wearing a helmet
at the time of the accident was trans-
,ported to Shands at the University of
Florida with such critical injuries that
he died.
Karen Welch who was Kyle's
eighth grade reading teacher re-
membered his huge grin and ability
to brighten the day of all of those
around him while in her class.
"He had such an innocent face,"
Welch said. "Someone would say,
'Kyle took my pencil!' And I would
have to say, 'No, not Kyle look at that
face."'

At 15 minutes before midnight on
Tuesday, Gilchrist County Supervisor
of Elections Connie Sanchez began
to cry as she told 15 candidates, their
families, and supporters that she did
not feel comfortable announcing the
election results after problems with
voting machines were detected.
"We have been on the phone with,
Tallahassee," Sanchez said. "Right
now we feel like the problem in-
volves only two precincts."
Judge Ed Philman, chairman of
the canvassing board, explained that
votes had been tabulated at all pre-
cincts except 2A-Donnie Precinct
and 3A-Bell Precinct. According to
Philman, the voting machine used
to calculate the ballots did not count
republican votes at these two pre-
cincts.
Once the problem was detected,
Sanchez called state voting officials
to determine what could be done.
She was instructed to run each ballot
through the machine again.
Sanchez asked each candidate and
their families to step inside the court-
house and enter the courtroom to
oversee the ballots being withdrawn
from the sealed duffel bags they were
placed in at each precinct and watch
as they were placed inside the ma-
chine.
A zero total was run through the
machine first to verify a zero total on
all ballots.
With sunburned faces and sweat
stained political shirts, the candidates
sat anxiously as Tracy Ridgeway, of
the Supervisor of Elections office fed
each ballot cast at Precinct 2A into
the machine by hand.
Once the machine had printed out
a tape listing information from each
ballot obtained, Judge Philman told
the candidates that the results would
have to be checked prior to being an-
nouced.
"We checked jurisdiction totals
to see if they jived with the precinct
numbers," Sanchez said. "And they
didn't."
Ultimately, the Supervisor of Elec-
tions announced that a service repre-
sentative from the vendor, PREMIER
Election Solutions, Inc., would call
her office by 9 a.m. on Wednesday
to schedule a service appointment.
Until the machine could be examined
and all problems fixed, Sanchez ex-
plained the election process would be
put oh hold.
"I just don't feel good giving you
the totals we have," Sanchez told can-
didates. "We don't want to cheat any
candidate out of one single vote."
Judge Philman explained that ac-
cording to state statute it is illegal to
hand count each vote cast at the two
precincts.
"Until the computer people come
and check the. machines, the ballots
will be locked in a safe inside the Su-
pervisor of Elections Office," Judge
Philman said.
When asked by a candidate if each
vote cast in the primary election
would be recounted, Judge Philman
indidated that it was too early to tell.

Citizens asked to help establish future goals

for the county by taking part in vision process


By Carrie A. Mizell
Recreation funding, paved roads,
and water bottling plants are just
a few key issues Gilchrist County
residents will have the opportunity
to express their opinions on during
a series of public meetings the Gil-
christ County Visioning Committee
will hold beginning Tuesday, Sept. 2
at 6 p.m.
The countywide public process
will be held to evaluate and update
the current Gilchrist County vision.
County Planning Director Taylor
Brown explained that the county's
vision, which has not been reviewed
in 10 years, would ideally set the
groundwork for the comprehensive
plan while serving as a guide for all
iong-rangd policy decisions the Gil-
thrist County Board of County Com-
rissioners make.
'Currently, the county's vision
statement is "Our vision for Gilchrist
County in 2020 is rural communities
working in harmony to provide op-
portunities for all its citizens through
balanced growth and enhanced edu-


cation, while preserving our proud
heritage, natural resources and agri-
culture."
The Gilchrist County. vision was
developed over an 18-month period
from 1999 to early 2001. Since tak-
ing over the position as county plan-
ning director 11 months ago, Brown
said he has watched county officials
act on numerous key issues facing the
future of the county in a reactionary
mode rather than looking at things
from a proactive standpoint. Brown
explained that county officials do not
currently have the benefit of an up to
date vision to refer to because much
of the vision was never implemented
by the county in 2001.
"Since that time many realities
have changed in our community,"
Brown stated. "A few examples in-
clude the real estate market's boom
and bust; ever increasing growth
pressures, rapid inflation triggered by
the skyrocketing price of gasoline;
the retirement of the Baby Boom
generation; the historic drought and
growing demands on water and other

natural resources."
According to Brown, the county's
vision needs to be evaluated not only
by visioning committee members, but
also, by citizens of Gilchrist County
to determine if it still makes sense
and if any changes need to be made
to keep it current with what is going
on in the county in 2008.
In 2001 citizens were asked to
rank issues, giving priority to issues
they felt were most important. The
top ranking issue, which garnered 94
points was a need for a growth man-
agement plan with careful land-use
zoning and other regulations neces-
sary to steer/manage/control growth
and to make the county better and
keep it cleaner. The second issue of
importance was must achieve excel-
lence in education, which earned 37
points. Citizens deemed a need to de-
fine "rural" as a low priority, as well
as, a need for more volunteerism,
more acceptance of responsibility for
the community on the part of resi-
dents and more unity among people
and communities in the county.
Current visioning committee mem-
bers are Lowell Chesborough, How-
ell Lancaster, Diana Harrison, Fred
Bowdoin, Gene Parrish, Brad Smith,
Martha Barns, Brian Olmert, Geor-
gia Shemitz, Scott Tucker, Bruce
Thomas, Michelle Walker-Crawford,
Richard Esseck, Kyle Stone, Jim
Jones, Tammy Jones, Iris Roberts,
James Surrency and Don Thomas, as
well as representatives from the City
of Trenton and the City of Fanning
Springs.
Citizens are encouraged to attend
Gilchrist County Visioning Commit-
tee meetings, which will be held in
the Trenton High School Auditorium,
located at 1013 North Main Street,
Trenton. The meetings will be facili-
tated by professors from the Univer-
sity of Florida.
Meeting dates are, Tuesday, Sept.
2; Tuesday, Oct. 7; Thursday, Nov. 6
and Tuesday, Dec. 2.

ning Director Taylor Brown at 463-*

Personality of the
Month
By Geneva Cornwell
"Teacher" Someone who imparts
wisdom, maturity, and skill to others;
validates direction, and ensures com-
pleteness. "Teacher" One whose
business or occupation is to instruct
others.
We all have known someone in
our lives who has taught us in such
a way that leaves an indelible mark
on our hearts and minds. That special
someone whom we call "Teacher";
that someone who was excellent at
his/her calling and gave us the right
push at the right time. "Teacher" an
excellent leadership quality. -
We have such a person in our midst
and one who was selected as the 2008
Gilchrist County Teacher of the Year;
Mrs. Tiffany VunCannon. The Char-
acter Council wishes to congratulate
Mrs. Von Cannon on her award and
has also selected her as the featured
personality of the month.
Mrs. VunCannon has her degree
in computer' science, but teaches
high school math. She also believes
that the skill of reading is essential
in becoming a life-long learner. Be-
cause of that belief, she went through
special training to become a facilita-
tor' for summer teacher workshops,
which this past summer took her to
many Florida counties in meetings
with other teachers. She believes it's
essential to integrate reading with
math. She declared that it was such
a wonderful experience to exchange
ideas with other people who love to
teach.
Tiffany believes that her calling
from God is in teaching. Through
His direction and her love of learn-
ing, she attempts to teach students the
essence of a "hunger to learn." She
finds her vocation to be very fulfill-
ing and she teaches because she loves
it. Mrs. VunCannon believes and
lives by Proverbs ,3:5 and,6: "Trust
in the Lord. with-all thine heart; and
lean notinto. thine own understand,-
ing. In all they ways acknowledge
Him, and He will direct thy paths."
This wonderful teacher shared that it


The Santa Fe River at Three Rivers
is forecast to reach 17.2 feet by Sat-
urday, according to weather officials.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) an-
nounced today that if the forecast is
correct and the river does reach that
level, a 32-mile segment of the Santa
Fe River will become an idle-speed,
no-wake zone for boaters.
Zone 5, which runs from River
Rise within O'Leno State Park west-
'to the confluence of the Santa Fe and
Suwannee rivers, becomes an idle-
speed, no-wake zone when the Santa
Fe River reaches 17 feet as indicated
on the Three Rivers gauge, where
flood stage is 19 feet.
"The Santa Fe could reach that lev-
el soon," said Capt. Roy Brown, area
supervisor at the FWC's Lake City
office. "We're encouraging boaters to
stay off the Santa Fe River."
An idle-speed, no-wake zone
means a vessel must proceed at a
speed no greater than required to
maintain steering and headway. At no
time is any vessel required to proceed
so slowly the operator cannot control
it or anything it may be towing.
If the idle-speed, no-wake zone

is the Lord who has directed her path
and teaching truly satisfies her.
So, with the new school year al-
ready is session, we can know that
teachers like Tiffany VunCannon will
surely have a positive impact in the
lives of so many as we continue to
understand that demonstrating good
character certainly makes a differ-
ence.


takes effect, FWC officers will be pa-
trolling this area of the river to ensure
the zone is enforced, Brown said.
"Water levels on the Suwannee
River can fluctuate rapidly, creating
navigational hazards, such as sub-
merged docks, floating debris, rocks,
stumps"and shoaling conditions for
unsuspecting boaters. We want ev-
eryone to be safe," Brown said.
The idle-speed, no-wake zone
would stay in effect until the water
level recedes below 17 feet.
There are five zones on the Suwan-
nee and Santa Fe rivers, with a water-
level gauge in each section. When the
water level rises to a predetermined
level ranging from 9 to 47 feet, de-
pending on the zone idle-speed, no-
wake restrictions will be enforced for
that zone.
"In the five zones, idle-speed, no-
wake restrictions are driven by Su-
wannee River Water Management
District gauges situated within these
segments," Brown said. "When the
specific gauge reaches the identified
water level, idle-speed, no-wake re-
strictions will be imposed."
"In addition, the National Weather
Service has predicted that the Suwan-
nee River at White Springs will rise
above the flood stage of 77 feet on
Friday," Brown said. "Although this
isn't a major recreational area and
isn't contained within our idle-speed,
no-wake zone system, we are still
urging boaters and others recreating
in that area to be alert and exercise
extreme caution."

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


Tropical Storm Fay will be remem-
bered as Florida's rainmaker that
brought the rain that Gilchrist County
needed but didn't impose flooding on
the low-lying areas.
Last Tuesday morning I opened the
National Weather Service Tallahassee
weather page and TS Fay's forecast
path was headed to North Florida. I
watched with interest thinking of just
how bad it would be if we ended up.
on the right side of this storm.
Fay was projected to impact the
Jacksonville area and then travel west
along the Florida state line.
As the day went on, the projected
path became even more uncertain as
they didn't know where this storm
would go. -
Depending on which news service
you listened to, some computer mod-
els had it passing across Florida near
the Tampa area, and some reported
it would be closer to the Gainesville
- Lake City region.


When it was all said and done, the
storm did pass over our area, but it
was less than a tropical depression
when it came upon us.
Gilchrist County Emergency Man-
agement Chief Ron Mills told me on
Monday that it would become a rain-
maker for us; he later explained that
at the time he didn't realize just how
much rain it would dump on the sun-
shine state.
I felt confident the storm would
pass through the Florida peninsula,
but I didn't realize just how many
times the course would be changed.
The storm is now impacting the
north Georgia and Carolinas, which
need the rain very much.
Gilchrist County and North Cen-
tral Florida's west coast needed the
rain to replenish our aquifer.
We got a good dose and I just hope
that we don't get any of Hurricane
Gustav, which is now impacting Haiti
at 90+ mph gusts.

J eef


Name: Mary Jo Mansfield
Lives: Trenton. I was born in Tren-
ton and lived here until 1 married.
We later returned in 1971.
Family: Daughter, Melanie; two
grandsons, J.D. and Michael both
of whom are in college.
Retired: After 39 years of teaching
elementary music. Twenty-nine of
those years were spent teaching at
Trenton Elementary School and part
of that was also at Bell Elementary
School.
What did you enjoy about teach-
ing? I just love children! I love to
see them happy. I believe music
binds them together.
What instruments do you play?
Only the piano..We had no band
when I was in school here so I
missed that. In college I spread
myself so thin I didn't have time to
concentrate on things I could have
done.
Rewards: Having former students
come up and tell me their memories
of being in my class or seeing for-
mer students with their own fami-
lies in Wal-Mart.
These days: I give the DIBELS test
at the elementary school four times
a year and do some substituting at
the middle-high school.
On Election Day: I work as a poll
worker at the Trenton Community
Center. I like visiting while work-
ing at the polls. Some people I only
get to see on Election Day. It's like
going to the post office. I could get
a box at my home, but I would miss
seeing people.
What do you like about living in
Gilchrist County? I like the small
town atmosphere. You can go al-

cialist, will discuss Bermudagrass

most anywhere and see someone
you know. I feel as if I had a flat tire
I know someone would stop to help
me. I think we live in a Christian
community.
What is something not many peo-
ple know about you? I like to stay
up real late at night going through
the mail and catching up on peri-
odicals. Then I sleep in late in the
morning.
Actively involved in: The Gilchrist
County Woman's Club and the
Retired Educators of Levy and
Gilchrist counties. I also work with
the children at church in the AWA-
NA program.
Future plans: I would like to do
more traveling. I would love to vis-
it Alaska, but I probably never will
because I'm trying to do some work
at the house.
Favorite food: Chocolate ... milk
chocolate. Isn't that awful? They
find out chocolate is good for you
and it's not even the kind I like.

you plan to attend, please call the Ex-
tension Office in Trenton, 463-3174

Gilchrist County (TDC) Tourist

Development Council promotes

the new Visit Gilchrist web site


In November 2006 the tourist de-
velopment tax was passed by a ma-
jority vote. Ordinance No. 2006-16
was levied which imposed a tourist
development tax throughout Gilchrist
County. The tax rate is 2 percent of
each dollar the visitors spend stay-
ing at overnight accommodations in
Gilchrist County such as camping,
RV parks and motels.
The 2 percent tourist tax helps pro-
mote tourism for Gilchrist County,
which will in turn strengthen the
local economy. Using nature-based
recreational assets to foster economic
development, allows us to maintain a
rural quality of life that is subsidized
by tourist dollars.
The funds that have been collected
by the state and returned to Gilchrist
County shall be used by the Gilchrist
County TDC only for the purposes
authorized by Section 125.0104,
Florida Statutes.

COOKING AND


CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


I love history and from time to
time I spend a little time plundering
thought old Journals. Recently one
of our readers dropped off a March
1937 Gilchrist County Journal by the
office for us to enjoy.
Come with me as I read through
the four pages of golden colored
news print.
"Governor Cone Makes Sugges-
tions To Florida Sea-Island Cotton
Growers," in this article the gover-
nor suggests that "Farmers who were
ready to begin planting their cotton
should handpick their seed and plant
only pure seed which are true to type.
Maintaining quality and length in
Sea-Island lint is most essential for
the success of the industry.," he de-
clared, "and this can be done only by
taking pains to see that pure seed are
planted."
"Poison Will Be Furnished Sea-
Island Cotton Growers Free To Kill
Boll Weevils" This article was writ-
ten by Geo D. Smith, Entomologist
in charge WPA Weevil Control Pro-
gram. The message was sent out to all
Sea-Island Cotton growers in North
Levy County and Gilchrist County.
"Several From Gilchrist County
Will Attend The Democratic Conten-
tion." The state convention was held
in Bradenton in 1937. Those dele-
gates who were elected to attend were
Marvis Roberts and Asa L. Harllee.
Alternates are N. R.. Lancaster, Earl
M. Miller, Donald Williams and Ed-
win Harwell.
"Trenton Market Report," stat-
ed, "5 cars (rail cars) of hogs sold
Wednesday through the Gulf Coop-
erative Marketing Association with
W. E. Watson, Manager. Money net-
ted was $5,100.00. Tops were based
on $8.51 per 100 lbs., a increase of
3 cents over last week." The hog
market was located on the. edge of
Trenton out near the old Gro-More
or Gulf West feed store. I was told
that years ago a lot of people raised
turkeys, in this area and Trenton also
had a turkey market. Almost all ag
products produced in this area like
turkeys, watermelon, hogs and cattle
were shipped from here north on the
railroad.

The school board was known as
The Board of Public Instruction of
Gilchrist County. The paper carried
school board meeting minutes. The
bills submitted to the state teachers
fund ranged from 70.00 per month
to 175.00 per month. Most teachers
were paid 70.00 per month. The su-
perintendent Mr. Cleveland Moore
was paid $150.00 per month.
An advertisement for the Austell
Bros. store in Trenton claimed to be
"Trenton's Style Center." Women's
Suites were on sale for $3.99 while
boys' knee pants in linen or black and
white check .790, Ladies Spring hats
sold for .690 to $2.95, boys' overalls,
heavy weight, were priced at .390.
Another interesting ad was placed
in the paper by Florida Power Cor-
poration. Advertised "Super-Duty"
Frigidaire with the meter miser. The
ad also promoted Frigidaire's new
improved ice tray with the cube-re-
lease handle. .
Another interesting fact I learned
while reading the 1937 newspaper
was that the Journal subscription was
only $1.00 per year.


Okra season is here. Okra has lots
of fiber, manganese, and is high in vi-
tamins C and K.



Fresh okra, washed
(preferable all about the same size)
Fresh dill or dried dill seed
Red and green hot peppers
Garlic cloves
1 quart white distilled vinegar
1 cup water
1/2 cup uniodized salt
Pack okra into 4 or 5 sterilized
wide mouth jars. Pack as tightly as
possible but avoid bruising the okra.-
To each jar add 2 heads of fresh dill
or 1 teaspoon dried dill seed, a red and
green hot pepper and 2 cloves of gar-
lic. Bring vinegar, water and salt to
boil and pour into jars to cover okra.
Seal jars. Wait at least two weeks be-
fore serving icy cold.
Does not need to be refrigerated
until ready to use.

A power point presentation featur-
ing old snapshots of class members
will also be shown during the re-
union. No yearbooks were printed
in the 1950s so the class has to rely
on old photographs taken during the
school year to make up the power
point presentation.
According to Diana Webb Harri-
son, 2008 will mark the 12th consec-
utive year the Trenton High School
Reunion has been held. Organizers
have decided that this year's reunion
will be the last reunion held until
2010.
Each year around 150 Trenton High
School alumni return to their home
to celebrate Trenton High School


Meetings will be held at Riverside
Baptist Church in the fellowship hall,
on the third Thursday night of the
month at 7 p.m.
Enrollment ages are from 5 to 18
years old. 4-H gives youth a chance
to explore many areas of interest
such as photography, wildlife, public


and the impact the education they
received made on their lives. Sadly
more graduates who moved away
make a point to attend the annual re-
union than graduates who still live in
the area. However, Harrison hopes
knowing this year's reunion will be
the last for several years will draw a
larger crowd than usual.
"All Trenton High School alumni
are invited to join us," Harrison said.
For more information on the annu-
al Trenton High School reunion, call
Diana Webb Harrison at 463-2147.
To submit class photographs for the
power point presentation, mail to
Prieston Jones, Post Office Box 183,
Trenton, FL 32693.


speaking, woodworking, gardening,
and many more.
Our 4-H programs have something
offer everyone. A $1 charge to cover
the cost of insurance is made at the
time of enrollment.
Come. and check out 4-H, or give
us a call.


Dakota Harding
4-ITe of the
Week
Dakota Harding
Our slogan in 4-H is "learn by
doing." Many young people have
learned what they are interested in or
what they excel at by participating in
a variety of 4-H projects and activi-
ties. The ability to try different kinds
of opportunities has helped these
youth discover their niche and many
have gone on to have successful ca-
reers in a particular area that started
out as a 4-H project when they were
young.
The 4-H'er of the week is Dakota
Harding, and he has discovered that
he can excel in several different ar-
eas in 4-H. Dakota is now 10 years
old but has been in 4-H since he was
fiye.
Dakota has tried many 4-H-proj-
ects including rabbits, chickens,
swine, gardening, citizenship, sew-
ing, shooting sports, ATV safety, and
has participated on the Consumer
Choices Judging Team and the Dairy
Quiz Bowl team.
Dakota is active in county and
district 4-H events and has given
demonstrations and participated in
fashion review. Dakota has partici-
pated in many 4-H day camps like the
dairy camp and sewing camp, but he
says his favorite 4-H activity is Camp
Cherry Lake.
Dakota is a well-rounded young
man who is a high achiever in school,
and he also plays football and base-
ball. Dakota may seem quiet at first,
but ask any of his friends and they'll
tell you how much fun, Dakota is and
how he loves to joke around.
When Dakota isn't working hard
on a 4-H project, on his homework,
or at a sports practice, he loves to
body surf at Daytona Beach. Con-
gratulations, Dakota, on being 4-H'er
of the week!
Now is the time for young people to
enroll in 4-H, call 463-3174 for more
information. Any youth in Gilchrist
County is eritbtagM d 'to join regard-
less of race, religion, handicap, or
gender.

be put on a flower and added to our
garden. The class that has the most
students will earn a popcorn party at
the end of the drive.
If you have a student at Bell El-
ementary, we encourage you to join
PTA and help our garden grow. We-
take pride in being a partner with
both our school and our parents. Join
us and share your time and your tal-
ents. Membership dues are $5 per

2008 "Whole Wide World" at

my public library


The 2008 "Whole Wide World"
children's summer program was a
huge success. Eighty children attend-
ed four-week summer program held
at the Gilchrist County Library. Each
week was filled with music, puppet
shows, snacks, and a special guest.
A very special thank you goes to
Drummond Bank who provided T-
shirts for every child; Hitchcock's
Foodway and Wal-Mart for donating
snacks; Hungry Howie's who donat-
ed pizza for the pizza bash; Debbie
Destin, School of Dance, whose stu-
dents performed international dance
routines in costume; Terri Keith, Red


Cross, brought Scrubby Bear who
taught the kids when and why we
wash our hands and how germs are
spread; Sara Greer, Division of For-
estry, led the kids in an activity that
taught the importance of trees to our
planet; and Marianne Bennink, health
department, brought the tooth fairy
who taught the correct way to brush
our teeth and grab bags filled with
fun ways to protect our shiny smile.
The fun will continue at the
Gilchrist County Library as the pre-
school program will begin on Friday,
September 5, 2008 at 11 a.m. For
more information call 463-3176.

Coach Baker's
perspective on
the 2008 season
Key games: Games against
Mayo and Hilliard will be big
in the scheme of things. Bell
is a pride game that we would
like to win.

Players to watch: C.J. Bow-
ers is big on talent and- speed.
Brandon McElroy is a vocal
leader on the team. Our start-
ing quarterback Caleb Smith
will have a lot asked of him as
a sophomore. Lee Collins has a
lot of ability as a starting tackle
if he can overcome his injury
from last year.

What are your overall
expectations this sea-
son? I want us to gel as
a program and a team
and play with pride this
season.

for excellence both on and off
the field this season.

How do you
teach your
players that
football rep-
resents real
S life? I say
football is
a great ex-
ample of what real life is like.
Sometimes things go your way,
and you can take advantage of
those opportunities, but when
tough times come, you have to
overcome. You have to choose
to be successful. There are no
excuses, and what happens
happens, but you have to deal
with it to be successful.

Coach Harden's
perspective on,
the 2008 season
Key games: Trenton is always
a big game. Branford is anoth-
er big rivalry. Providence has
turned into an interesting game.
Each year the home team wins
by less than a touchdown.

Players to watch: Return-
ing offensive starters, Robby
Heck, Justin Fowler, Robert
Hankins, Bradley Tecken-
brock, Ryan Fisher,
Lee Carlisle, William
Joiner and Cory Irvin
are all strong players.
Lee Carlisle rushed
for 1808 yards in
2007 and scored 17
touchdowns for the
Bulldogs. Returning

defensive starters Chris Wilk-

team up for
a strong
Bulldogs defense. Key re-
serves and newcomers in 2008
are Bradley Denham, Garth
Frier, Donald Sandoval, Jer-
emy Zimmerman, Wes Stofel
and Greyson Stewart.

What are your overall expec-
tations this season? We only
have 28 players on our roster.
In order for us to be successful
this season we have to do ev-
erything possible to avoid inju-
ries. We have a lot of two way
players, if we lose one player
it will be like losing two posi-
tions. Our season this year will
depend on how injury free we


remain.

ARTICLE IX
EDUCATION
SECTION 1. Public funding o educa-
tion.--
(a) The education of children is a fun-
damental value of the people of the State
of Florida. It is, therefore, a paramount
duty of the state to make adequate provi-
sion for the education of all children re-
siding within its borders. This duty shall
be fulfilled, at a minimum and not exclu-


sively. through adequate Adequate provi-
sion shaH-be-made by law for a uniform,
efficient, safe, secure, and high quality
system of free public.schools that allows
students to obtain a high quality education
and for the establishment, maintenance,
and operation of institutions of higher
learning and other public education pro-
grams that the needs of the people may
require. Nothing in this subsection cre-
ates an entitlement to a publicly-financed
private program.
(b) To assure that children attend-
ing public schools obtain a high qual-
ity education, the legislature shall make
adequate provision to ensure that, by the
beginning of the 2010 school year, there
are a sufficient number of classrooms so
that:
(1) The maximum number of students
who are assigned to each teacher who is
teaching in public school classrooms for
prekindergarten through grade 3 does not
exceed 18 students;
(2) The maximum number of students
who are assigned to each teacher who is
teaching in public school classrooms for
grades 4 through 8 does not exceed 22
students; and
(3) The maximum number of students
who are assigned to each teacher who is
teaching in public school classrooms for
grades 9 through 12 does not exceed 25
students.
The class size requirements of this
subsection do not apply to extracurricular
classes. Payment of the costs associated
with reducing class size to meet these
requirements is the responsibility of the
state and not of local schools districts.
Beginning with the 2003-2004 fiscal
year, the legislature shall provide suffi-
cient funds to reduce the average number
of students in each classroom by at least
two students per year until the maximum
number of students per classroom does
not exceed the requirements of this sub-
section.
(c (b) Every four-year old child in
Florida shall be provided by the State
a high quality pre-kindergarten learn-
ing opportunity in the form of an early
childhood development and education
program which shall be voluntary, high
quality, free, and delivered according to
professionally accepted .standards. An
early childhood development and educa-
tion program means an organized' prd-
gram designed to address and enhance
each child's ability to make age appropri-
ate progress in an appropriate range of
settings in the development of language
and cognitive capabilities and emotional,
social, regulatory and moral capacities
through education in basic skills and such
other skills as the Legislature may deter-
mine to be appropriate.
(dM)(e) The early childhood education
and development programs provided by
reason of subsection (c) subparagraph-(b)
shall be implemented no later than.the be-
ginning of the 2005 school year through
funds generated in addition to those used
for existing education, health, and devel-
opment programs. Existing education,
health, and development programs are
those funded by the State as of January
1, 2002 that provided for child or adult
education, health care, or development.
SECTION 8. Requiring sixty-five
percent of school funding for classroom
instruction.--At least sixty-five percent
of the school funding received by school
districts shall be spent on classroom in-
struction. rather than on administration.
Classroom instruction and administration
shall be defined by law. The legislature
may also address differences in adminis-
trative expenditures by district for neces-
sary services, such as transportation and
food services. Funds for capital outlay
shall not be included in the calculation
required by this section.
ARTICLE XII

Section 28. Requiring sixty-five per-
cent of school funding for classroom

Bell FFA Alumni Shindig and Cake Auction


Bell FFA member Talon Rolling is shown with his third place nursey
rhyme cake. Eddy Scott of the Bell FFA Alumni was the auctioneer.


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Have your cake and eat it too!
That's just what happened at the
annual Bell FFAAlumni Shindig and
Cake Auction.
Before the auction ended, a huge
chocolate cake baked by Mrs. Wilson
was auctioned off for some $300 and
promptly served to anyone wanting a
little extra dessert.
Of course, most people attending
the event were already pretty full be-
cause the event began with a wonder-
ful dinner. Barbecue and a more than
ample amount of homemade side
dishes were served to the larger-than
-usual crowd. Plus, those special, spe-
cial yeast rolls, which the lunchroom
ladies of yesteryear were known for,
finished off the meal to perfection.
Each year the event highlights the
top decorated cakes in two catego-
ries. This year's winners in the FFA
cake decoration category were Cin-
dy Nobs who placed first, Christina
Nobs who placed second and Talon
Rolling who placed third.
The theme cakes this year were
decorated to depict nursery rhymes.
The winners were Joy Nazworth in
first place, Bruce Thomas Jr.'s car-
rot cake placed second and Christina
Nobs' cake placed third.
The biding was rapid as some 49
cakes were sold for around $5,500.
The funds raised at this event go to-


ward scholarships and expenses in-
curred by FFA members when they
attend conventions and other FFA
related events. Eddy Scott enjoyed
presenting the cakes for auction
again this year. During the event he
thanked all those who were buying
cakes at the event and those who
donated prizes for the FFA members
who entered cakes.
The final cake auctioned was baked
by Nina Sue Shepherd, a longtime
FFA supporter. She requested that the
money raised by her cake go to the
Ford family. Bell student Kyle Ford
passed away last week after a tragic
accident. Mrs. Shepherd's pound
cake was auctioned for $600, and in-
dividuals in the audience added on to
the final bid in increments of $50 and
$100. When all was said and done, a
total of $1,100 in add-ons had been
collected. Part of the total raised will
go to the Ford family and part will
go to the scholarship fund which has
been set up in Kyle Ford's name at
Capital City Bank.
After the auction ended, the stu-
dents cleared away the tables and the
dancing began. Mr. Lindsay called the
square dance again this year, while
students and some parents joined in
the line dancing.
This worthwhile community event
was enjoyed by all who attended.


Calling all classic and

custom car enthusiasts

Bell teen dies in accident

(Continued from page 1)


Bell High School Principal Rick
Reed said students at BHS did sev-
eral things in remembrance of Kyle
earlier this week including writing
personal tributes to Kyle on remem-
brance signs. According to Reed, the.
basketball team also retired Kyle's
jersey and presented it to his parents,
Pam and Rick Ford, and sister and
brother, Sara and Zach.
"Kyle enjoyed life and his friends,"
Reed said.


At the Bell FFA Alumni Cake
Auction and Shindig held Saturday
evening a cake was auctioned off to
raise funds for Kyle's family and a
scholarship that has been set up in
his name. The cake was auctioned-off
for $600 and $1;100 in add-ons were
also pledged.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks
that donations be made to the Kyle D.
Ford, Class of 2011 Scholarship that
has been set up at Capital City Bank.


Bell FFA member Cindy Nobs is shown with her The Farmer in the
Dell nursery rhyme cake which placed first. The cake was purchased
by Don Thomas for $135.
