Public safety director 's job is cut due to budget shortfalls


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners looked hard at making cuts in
their proposed 2008-09 general fund
budget to meet the needs of the antic-
ipated revenue shortfall during their
Tuesday, September 2 meeting.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. explained to the commissioners
that due to shortfalls in revenue, he
proposed reducing the budget for the
department of public safety, which
would increase revenues in the gen-
eral fund budget.
The public safety director's po-


sition, which is currently held by
Carlos Perez, was identified as an
$86,000 position.
Commissioner Harrison made a
motion to not fund the director's
position of the department of public
safety and allow the county admin-
istrator to make the administrative
decisions.
Commissioner Sharon A. Langford
said she would give a second for dis-
cussion. '
Perez told the board that the chain
of command involving the depart-
ment of public safety, which includes


Gilchrist County Fire Rescue, is a
tremendous workload.
He explained that the department
of public safety supervises Gilchrist
County Emergency Medical Ser-
vices, Gilchrist County Fire Res-
cue, Gilchrist County Emergency
Management and Gilchrist County
Animal Control. As 'public safety di-
rector, Perez answers to the county
administrator and then to the board
of county commissioners.
Commissioner Kendrick Thomas
explained that all of this began when
the board took action to establish the


department of public safety to take
a certain amount of workload off of
County Administrator Ron McQueen,
but now it seems the board is consid-
ering reducing- the director of public
safety position to save money.
Commissioner Randy Durden
asked McQueen how he felt about
the proposed restructuring of the de-
partment of public safety.
"I feel that fire rescue in Gilchrist
County is a real issue," McQueen ex-
plained.
He pointed out that during the pro-
cess of the construction of theemer-


agency operations center, the depart-
ment of public safety, fire rescue and
EMS have all been under a tremen-
dous strain.
Commissioner Durden asked Mc-
Queen if he thought he could handle
the increased workload in the county
administrator's position. McQueen
said he would give the board a report
in the September 15 meeting.
Chairman Tommy Langford called
for a roll call vote, and the board ap-
proved the motion by a 4-1 decision.
Chairman Langford voted no on the
motion.


Every voice heard at


visioning committee


Bell topples Trenton 23-15 in season opener


meetings
By Cindy Jo Ayers
The first of four scheduled meet-
ings of the newly formed visioning
committee was held on Tuesday,
Sept. 2.
A sequence of visioning commit-
tee meetings is planned to update
the 1999-2000 Vision for the county
from which the county's comprehen-
sive plan is based.
Gilchrist County Planning Direc-
tor Taylor Brown proposed that the
county's citizens revisit the old Vi-
sion to update it and make changes
where they are needed.
For instance Brown said, "The
comprehensive plan has nothing
that prohibits water bottling plants
or large scale developments as it is
written at ihis time."
It has been a full eight years since
the former committee set the vision
for the county, which included this
vision statement "Our vision-for Gil-
christ County in 2020 is rural com-
munities working in harmony to pro-
vide opportunities for all its citizens
through balanced growth and en-
hanced education, while preserving
our proud heritage, natural resources
and agriculture."
At the first meeting all 75 people
who attended were given equal par-
ticipation in the rating of comprehen-
sive plan issue identification by order
of importance.
Many county residents were under
the misconception that the committee
members, who were appointed by the
county commissioners, the three local
municipalities and the school board
would be making the decisions. But,
as it turns out the committee mem-
bers were only asked so every area of
the county would be represented and
give a cohesive group to attend each
meeting, Brown explained.
Ranking first in importance was the
county needs a good growth manage-
ment plan for careful land-use zon-
ing .and other regulations necessary
to steer/manage/control growth and
to make the county better and keep it
cleaner; this is the same ranking the
issue received in 2000.
Protect natural resources is now
ranked second. In 2000 natural re-
sources was ranked number three.
Increase county revenue through
development of business and other
components of the tax base is ranked
third. This issue was ranked number
five in 2000.

coming up from a 12th place rank in
2000.
Form a 2020 vision implementa-
tion task force to insure continued
momentum and achievement of re-
sults ranks 12th. This issue was also
ranked 12th in 2000.
During the meeting the follow-
ing current issues facing Gilchrist
County were also ranked by those at-
tending in order or importance: First
place-industrial development such as
water battling; second place-village
development like Oak Tree Landing;.
third place-agriculture; fourth place-
residential development; fifth place-
infrastructure; sixth place-education;
seventh place-city development,
eighth place-nature-based tourism,
and ninth place-establish a water util-
ity.
Property owners, and residents
of Gilchrist County are encouraged
to come out and participate in the
monthly meetings, which will be
held for the next three months. Any
changes in the comprehensive plan
could change property value and/or
the way one uses his/her property
now and in the future.

By John M. Ayers
The Bell Bulldogs welcomed the
Trenton Tigers Friday night to open
the regular season for both teams.
This game has been identified as the
Gilchrist County Championship in
years past when the two teams played
to finish the regular season. This year
the Bell stadium was filled to capac-
ity as fans filled the seats and lined
the fences to cheer on their favorite
team.
This game got exciting early in the
first quarter as Trenton's C J Bow-
ers scored on a 5 yard run. The se-
nior tailback also got the call for the
conversion as he made the score 8-0
as he ran into the end zone with 5:32
remaining in the first period.
The Bulldogs on their next posses-
sion vowed to tie the score as they
completed numerous passes moving
down the field on the young Tiger's
defense. Bulldog quarterback Justin
Fowler connected with Ryan Fisher
for an 11-yard touchdown. With the


host down by 2 points, Lee Carlisle
was called on to get the game tying
2-point conversion. With 1:57 left in
the first period this game was tied at
8-8.
Bell's offense struck again in the
second period as William Joiner
pulled in a 10-yard pass from Fowl-
er to give the Bulldogs the lead.
Lee Carlisle was again called on to
provide an extra point following a
touchdown. This time he kicked the
pigskin between the uprights giving
the host a 15-8 edge.
This game was hard fought the en-
tire night.
Opening the fourth period the
Bulldogs held their 7-point lead. C.J.
Bowers put the Tigers within a point
as he'scored a touchdown for Tren-
ton on a 5-yard run with 10:07 left
in the game. The outstanding senior
player remained in the game as he
kicked the extra point to tie the game
at 15-15. The Bulldogs on their next
possession put forth the drive to put

Tiger's end zone. Fowler caught up
with Chris Wilkerson on a 9-yard
pass that proved to be the game win-
ner for Bell. Fowler threw Robert
Hankins a pass for the 2-point con-
version to give the host the 23-15
winning margin.
The Tigers were led in this game
by C J Bowers as the senior tailback
rushed for 83 yards scoring 2 touch-
downs. On defense he led the Tiger.'s
with 11 tackles from his safety po-
sition. Trenton quarterback Caleb
Smith had an outstanding game com-
pleting 4 of 9 passes for 45 yards.
Trenton's Brandon McElroy also had
a great game as the senior fullback
had 3 receptions for 38 yards.
Mike Elliott highlighted the Tigers
defense as the senior defensive end
had 8 tackles. Corbyn Pugh, the soph-
omore linebacker, had 11 tackles and
1 recovery and Travis Sessions had 7
tackles from, his defensive end post.
Trenton coach Chris Baker explained


that the Tigers had a good game. "I
didn't think that our intensity was as
good as it needed to be," Baker added.
The Bulldogs had outstanding senior,
leadership that held great intensity in
this game, Baker explained.
William Joiner led the Bulldogs
as he rushed for 94 yards scoring
a touchdown. On defense Joiner
teamed up with Lee Carlisle as they
had 16 tackles together to lead the
Dogs' defense.
In the fifth quarter the bands from
both schools took the field and played
"Amazing Grace" as Bell students
and their families joined together to
remember the Bell students who lost
their lives recently.
Bell will host Oak Hall Friday
night beginning at 7 p.m.
Trenton will open the home sched-
ule Friday night as they host The
Villages. The visitors come into this
game after being defeated by Lake
Weir 34-21 in their season opener

By Geneva Cornwell
Atteenveness; the by-word for this
month. Attentiveness is noticing de-
tails that would otherwise go unob-
served. Attentiveness is showing the
worth of a person or task by giving
my undivided concentration.
Are you listening? How do you feel
when you try to explain something
to someone and they ignore you? It
can be extremely frustrating. Be-
ing ignored hurts. We are all equally
valuable and should thus respect one
another, recognizing there is a time to
listen and a time to talk.
This month, as we look into details
of attentiveness, the chosen person-
ality of the month is Mrs. Tammy
Crumpton Browning. Mrs. Brown-
ing is life-long resident of Gilchrist
County, who attended Central Florida
Community College and later earned
certification as a nurse's assistant.
Besides being married to her husband
David, she is the mother to a daughter
and a son. She also works as a phar-
macy technician at Best Drugs. She's
looking forward to one day earning
her degree as a registered.nurse.
Tammy loves to learn, but her
greatest gift is she loves people and
cares about them. Because she's a
good listener, and tries to do every
thing she can to allow people to ex-
press themselves, on occasions her
usual advice is given with words of
encouragement.
As a mother, Tammy believes that
her children's schooling is essential.
Matter of fact, she takes them to
school every morning, early enough
to bring them to the library where she o
spends a half-hour reading to them.
She's helping them to learn how im-
portant, it isto stay.focused and that it
is.a ,good. thing to.be attentive. .
.. Browning's. greatest, advice to
young people is, "Be eager to learn
and show attentiveness. Stay in school
and work hard. Do not give up. Place
God first in your life and be attentive
as to how He is directing your path."
Tammy attends Pine Grove Baptist
Church and attempts to be attentive
to the needs of others by witnessing
to them, praying for them, and telling
them about Jesus Christ.
As we continue to move along in
our quest of life-long learning regard-
ing moral character, and as we are re-
warded with better relationships with
others, we can understand more fully
that it's citizens like Tammy Brown-
ing who make Gilchrist County the
wonderful place it is in which to live,
for people of character are highly
esteemed and respected. So let's be
good listeners while putting on a cape
of attentiveness.

Our family would like to express
our sincere appreciation for all of the
love and support we have received
since the death of our son, Gar-
rett. This is a debt we could never
repay in our lifetime. We have just
been overwhelmed by the countless
acts of love, kindness and support
that have been extended to us. Gar-
rett was broken hearted, and his last
wish was that people would simply
treat each other better. Had Garrett
foreseen the innumerable acts of love
for him and his family, I know in my
heart he would have made a different
decision.
To the students, I would like to say
that many times since Garrett's death,
I have prayed for God to take my life
instead and give Garrett a second
chance. I think all parents in this
situation would ask God for the same
thing because that is how much par-
ents love their children. I only beg
that if something is bothering you,
please talk to your parents because

TO The Good People of the Bell

y^,,Y Community and surrounding areas.


We would like to say "THANK YOU SO MUCH" to
everyone who donated food, drinks, supplies, their time,

words of encouragement, prayers, money and comfort

to the Ford Family during our tragic time of need, loss

- and sorrow.

We cannot express enough the gratitude we feel in our

hearts to know how much our friends in our community
care so deeply enough to support us and continue to

support us through this difficult time.

We feel so blessed to be a part of such a wonderful and

caring community. Again, THANK YOU from the
bottom of our hearts for all the cards, donations to us

and to the scholarship fund, the prayers and special

mementos from Kyle's friends, BHS administration,
teachers, and staff, all the local businesses and even new

friends we had never met before.

We pray that everyone will hold onto their memories of
Kyle and remember always his happy, unselfish, sweet

fun-loving nature. Kyle was a very special young man
not only to his family, but to all of his friends as well.

We just wanted everyone to know how much we
appreciate all their consideration. We love you all and

may God bless all of you.



Sincerely,

Pam, Rick, Sara, and Zachary Ford

A woman far smarter than I am told
me once that when bad things happen
to good people you can't ask God
why because to ask is to iniply that
there is something you could have
done to stop what happened.
I was reminded of our conversa-
tion earlier this week as I looked at
a picture taken at Friday night's foot-
ball game. As Trenton and Bell fans
stood in the stands after the ballgame,
members of the BHS 10th grade class
surrounded the family of Garrett
Hudson. Tears streamed down the
face of Garrett's mother Lisa as she


held tightly to her husband David and
daughter Lauren. In a salute to both
Garrett and his friend Kyle Ford, who
passed away three weeks ago, the
students had t-shirts made that read:
Class of 2011-Friendships Like
Ours Will Last Forever-In loving
memory of Garrett Hudson and Kyle
Ford.
I realized at that moment that I
made a mistake in last week's news-
paper. In an article I wrote about the
death of Garrett Hudson I stated,

Jesus
(Kent HE

Crying comes from a deep emotional bonding of heart,
soul and mind in grief over the loss or hurt of someone
precious. Shedding tears of sorrow is an overwhelming
sadness that surrounds the heart of one bowed down in
anguish. The death of a parent brings life-long heartaches
of precious memories. When a mate dies, the grief is
nearly too much to bear. A child's death is the most tragic
of all and inconsolable. Our lives are acquainted with
grief; how can we comprehend the Son of God weeping?
Jesus had been called to the home of Mary and Martha
whose brother, Lazarus was sick unto death (John 11:1-6).
The Lord tarried a few days before beginning the journey
and upon arrival was told that Lazarus had died and had
been in the tomb four days (John 11:17). "When Jesus
therefore saw [Mary] weeping, and the Jews who came
with her also weeping, He was deeply moved in spirit and
was troubled, and said, 'Where have you laid him?' They
said to Him, 'Lord, come and see.' Jesus wept" (John
11:33-35). How can we imagine the Son of God weeping?
In the gospel of divinity declaring "In the beginning was
the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was
God. He was in the beginning with God" (John 1:1-2);
and yet, He was crying.
This was not the first time Jesus cried. As with all
humanity He had shared in the grief of death. His earthly
father who took Him in as his own son (Luke 3:2) had
died before His ministry. In the thirty years before He had
seen death in friends, neighbors and families. But here
Jesus stands as the Son of God, and tears are flowing
down His cheeks. Our Lord was showing His compassion
for the human frailties that so often invade our lives.
Jesus wept because of His love in human terms for


year-old Garrett Hudson had passed
away."
In seeing Garrett's family sur-
rounded by Trenton and Bell foot-
ball players, cheerleaders, coaches,
students and bands, I was reminded
of how special Gilchrist County is.
Since the start of the school year, Bell
High School has lost three students.
The great loss of these teenagers is
not centralized to only Bell, it is felt
throughout the county by the many
friends of not only the boys, but also
their families who come together at
this time to grieve alongside them.

Letter to the Editor
vision-water bottling
The following is meant for the com-
missioners and residents of Gilchrist
County, Florida.
Several years ago, while enjoy-
ing a day at Hart Springs, I picked
up a Recreation Guide for Gilchrist
County. The vision statement for the
year 2020 enlisted in the brochure
caught my eye. It read: "Our vision
for Gilchrist County in 2020 is rural
communities working 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."
Wow! What a place to live. Gilchrist
County is full of stunning rivers and
springs, as well as quaint and friendly
communities. To know, that people
were so concerned about preserving
the beautiful natural resources in this
area, inspired me. My family and I
have been visiting, camping, and en-
joying your hospitality for 25 years.
I have seen in my own community
what is happening in yours. We have-
experienced several years of drought,
sinkholes, dried up lakebeds and
-wells, and water bottling companies
taking our water to sell for profit.
Now, more than ever, our springs
are in severe threat. On Rt. 340 out-
side of High Springs there have been
signs stating "Springs Protection
Area." Pumping water from our natu-
ral springs is in no way preserving or
protecting them.
Building a bottling plant at Blue
Springs may bring a few locals jobs,
but at what cost? The noisy trucks
alone will emit high amounts of pol-

Mary, Martha and Lazarus. He felt the same sting of pain
we feel when our loved ones die. The voice is quiet, the
hands lie folded in rest, the heart that beat the warmth of
love is now hollow, and the face is pale in the veil of death.
All of the joys of life are taken from our spirit when death
takes our loved one. Jesus felt this pain in the death of
Lazarus.
Jesus wept because of the tragedy of death. It was not
meant to be. Death came as a result of sin when. God
prohibited man from living in the Garden of Eden (Genesis
3:22-24). Every monument raised to honor a loved one in
death is a testimony of the penalty for sin. The sadness of
death is the sting of death. Our Lord knew why He had
come, and He understood clearly His path was pointing to
His own death on the cross. "Surely he hath borne our
griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him
stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was
wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our
iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:4-5).
Jesus wept because He truly cared for others. Our hearts
are not as tender to the death of others because we share
none or little relationship to their lives. Jesus wept because
he was not only a friend of the family of Lazarus; He was a
friend of everyone on earth. His death on the cross would
be a single act of love for every person from Adam to the
last baby born on earth. He cares for each one He cares
for you, and He cares for me. It is hard to imagine that God
has a name for every star (Psalm 147:4) and yet His Son
weeps for every person and the struggles they face daily
(Hebrews 4:15).
Thank God Jesus wept.

lution into the air as well as the added
wear and tear on roads and the every-
day eye sore they will bring to this
beautiful community. We won't be
the only ones suffering. The animals
and plant life in the area will feel the
negative affects of this bottling plant
as much, if not more, than we will.
This process may harm springs and
rivers, and may dry up home water
wells and cause the formation of
sinkholes. The negative affects of
this water bottling plant being built
will far outweigh the positive ones.
Think about all the water be-
ing shipped out of Gilchrist County
each year. This water is bottled and
sold for profit. This water belongs to
us and the people of Florida need to
have a say in what is done with it. We
need to stand up, speak out, and put a
stop to this before all of our beautiful
springs are being pumped. We owe
this to our children and their children
to make sure they will one day have
a clean environment to live in and
beautiful natural springs to enjoy.,
All springs need to be classified as
environmentally sensitive so we will
no longer have to deal with foreign
and domestic companies coming in
and trying to take over and sell our
water. We need to preserve these
natural springs to the best of our
abilities. We can't afford to sit back
and watch these pristine wonders be
destroyed because of greed and the
almighty dollar.
With all due respect, a vote for any
bottling plant would be a vote against
your vision. Please stand up and help
educate others so that we can protect
our springs now and forever.
Sincerely,
Jack Cuthbertson


Letter to the Editor
Dear Mr. Ayers:
The Journal front page article on
July 17, 2008, read "Stumbling econ-
omy prompts rise in home burglar-
ies." Followed by a letterA.M. Kelly,
Jr., which was then followed by "In
response to A.M. Kelly, Jr's. Letter to
the Editor, The McRae family."
My family also experienced nu-
merous attempts at burglary, a couple
of thefts, and prowling on my prop-
erty, over the 2007 Christmas, and
New Year's holidays. And yes, the
perpetrators are "bold, mean spirited,
and persistent."
I contacted the Sheriff's Office and
its command center with my concerns
for the safety of my family as well.
Their response during the com-
mission of these crimes left a lot to
be desired, because on one occasion,
my wife called me on my cellular
phone after one of my children spot-
ted a young, Caucasian male in my
front driveway just after dusk one
evening.
I made it home before law enforce-
ment. On another occasion, I called
for assistance at approximately
0130 and Dixie County Emergency
Dispatch answered the phone and
explained that "they were taking
Gilchrist County calls and put me on
hold until they could contact some-
one from Gilchrist County to accept
my 911 call."
SAnd still the bad guys would have
had time to hurt everyone in my
home, eat a ham sandwich and watch
a little Leno before a unit arrived on
the scene.
All the technology, surveillance,
attack dogs, shotguns, weapons of all
sorts, and even the trusty baseball bat
will not deter or stem the rising tide
of lawlessness in this, our peaceful
rural community.
You see, Gilchristonians whether
we like it or not, the world has come
to this quiet neck of the woods.
If the new sheriff, who is com-
ing to town, even had at his disposal
two National Guard Divisions, with

"Thank God every morning when
you get up that you have something
to do that day which must be done,
whether you like it or not. Being
forced to work, and forced to do your
best, will breed in you temperance and
self-control, diligence and strength of
will, cheerfulness and content and a
hundred virtues which the idle never
know." Charles Kingsley
Charles Kingsley may have lived
in the middle 1800s but he sure did
have a lot in common with my grand-
father, whose favorite quote was
"Hard work won't kill you." Turns
out my Poppy was right because he
lived to be 89. 'He was a worker, al-
ways doing something.
Over the weekend I tried to keep
the hard work won't kill you, quote in
mind as I pulled vines off our house.
Those vines have been growing like
Kudzu over the last couple months
due to the abundant rain of dog days.
This time of year I like to spread the
weed pulling out, doing just a little
pull each day.
While pulling weeds I found a nice


shoot-to-kill orders from the Gover-
nor, evil would live amongst us just
the same.
The new sheriff would be more
straight forward with you and me if
he told us "Lay not up for yourselves
treasures upon earth where moth and
rust doth corrupt, and where (bad
boys, bad boys) will break through
and steal."
In this you would know he is an
honest man. My fellow citizens and
Masons of Gilchrist County, let us
pray for one another and look out for
one another: Black, White, Hispanic,
Oriental, Native American, and oth-
ers who call this jewel of Florida
home.

pepper plant which is full of beauti-
ful hot peppers. Hot pepper plants
love Florida; they like the heat of
late summer. I grow them in pots, but
many people just plant them in the
ground. Basically they like a little
water every now and then but don't
need extra care.
I'm thinking that a nice bottle of
pepper sauce might be in order. Be-
fore we know it we will be dining on
fresh collards, turnips and my-all-
time favorite, mustard greens. Those
greens would not be same without a
sprinkling of old-fashioned pepper
sauce. The origin of pepper sauce is
still a mystery, even though it's been
gracing Southern tables for genera-
tions.
Pepper Sauce
Pick red and green peppers from
the garden. Wash, cut off stems,
and dry well on paper towels. Boil
enough white vinegar to cover pep-
pers in jars and seal. We keep ours in

leave it on the table.

Springhouse quilt members have
been donating community projects to
those who have special needs. This
year, there were three projects mem-
bers participated in. Two were strict-
ly volunteer, making and donating
pillowcases to the cancer center chil-
dren at Shands and making receiving
blankets for very small children in
need. The pillow case project has
been a joint effort between several
groups in the local area with our coor-
dination toA-1 Sewing in Gainesville
for delivery to Shands' cancer kids.
So far, we have donated over 160
of these one-of-a-kind pillowcases
and members are still making them.
Springhouse also donated over 30 re-
ceiving blankets to a special group of
displaced babies.
Another Way is the recipient of the
quillows Springhouse members have


been making. There will be at least
80 of these donated to Another Way
for mothers, fathers, and children of
abused families.
Springhouse is very dedicated to
helping those with special needs.
If there is a special need of a group
that needs one-of-a kind items for
comfort, please contact Springhouse.

The political season is in full swing, and, as always seems to be the case, a common strat-
egy used is to talk bad about other candidates or to start nasty rumors to distract the
voters from the real issue of the campaign. Don't let yourself fall prey to this tactic.
Remember that the real issue, you as the voter must look at when deciding whom to vote
in as your next sheriff, is who has the best credentials to get the job done right.

I know both of my opponents and respect them and their ideas. I am not running to down-
grade them or make them look bad. I am running because I believe I am the best man for
the job and am the only candidate with the skills and credentials necessary to run the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.

/ The only candidate with a degree in Law Enforcement Administration (B.A.)
/ The only candidate with a degree in the Law (J.D)
/ .The only candidate who has managed a budget of more than 3 million dollars
/ The only candidate who has managed a staff of more than 50 people
/ The only candidate who has been a deputy and a prosecutor

If you have any questions about me or my credentials, please give me a call, and I will be
happy to meet with you and discuss any questions or concerns you may have. I welcome
support from every member of our community and look forward to the opportunity to
serve as your next sheriff. I ask for your vote and support on November 4th.

progress.
Hungry Howie's is sponsoring
AR incentives with a Super Student
Award. Students earning the re-
quired points will receive the award
which can be redeemed for a free
one-topping junior sized pizza.

looked 'like experienced performers.
Kudos to our veteran leadership in
the preparation.
Thank you to the band scene crew-

pared to work. Barring any further
storm threats this week, the band
plans to debut it's West Side Story

boosters who assisted the band pro-
gram on Friday night: Dena Griff-
tith for feeding the band. Cinnamon

working the Bulldog gear table; Lori
Ann Hunter, Stacy Bachman, Ste-.
phen Cutts, Gloria Friar, Joy Railey,

ways, you guys are the best. Thank
you to all the fans who supported our
gear table and our goodie basket give
away. Look each week at our table
for the new goodie basket.

R Robert Roux

for Sheriff

As I have traveled around visiting with the
citizens of our great county, one of the greatest
concerns expressed is the drug problem in our '.
community. If elected Sheriff of Gilchrist
County, I will work diligently toward solving
this issue. I will use my experience, training,
and contacts to their greatest benefit. Through
my law enforcement career, I have worked with
the Tri-County Task Force, FDLE, and DEA. If
elected sheriff, I will continue to work success-
fully with these agencies to rid Gilchrist
County of drugs. (Endorsed by the PBA.

On September 4th Trenton's JV
football team traveled to Newberry
to take on the Pan-
thers. Trenton had
been working hard all
summer in the weight
room and condition-
ing to get ready for
its upcoming season.
The THS boys had
not forgotten the de-
feat Newberry had
given them the previ- -
ous year 'in front of ^ -,
their home crowd.
Newberry scored
in the first quarter on
a short run by the halfback to make
the score 6-0. They went for two
but were stopped short by the tough
Trenton defense. That would be the
only scoring for the night for New-
berry.
Trenton would answer with two
scores, both by Brandon Stone.
Stone had 100 yards on 5 carries
land, and Stephanie Martin. All other
parents who have requested to attend
may attend by purchasing an extra
ticket for $15 and carpooling to Tal-
lahassee in private vehicles. We have
tickets for everyone who has request-
ed to attend. Please, see Mrs. T if you
have not yet paid for your ticket.
The Band Boosters are putting in
an order for orange polo style shirts
with black embroidery with Band
Volunteer on them. Please place or-
ders as quickly as possible. The price
is $22 for small thru x-large and $25
for xx-large and xxx-large. We are
also putting together a recipe book
for the fall fundraiser. If you have
any recipes you would like to share,
please go to the band website and


and shared the tailback duties with
Cedric Stokes, who had 97 yards
on 23 carries. Stokes ran hard all
night and picked up a
key first down late in
the fourth quarter that
sealed .the game for
Sthe Tigers.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 2008


"I promise that I will hurt you."
I know...it sounds like I've been
watching too much wrestling or
UFC's Ultimate Fights, but that's not
the case. In the framework of our re-
lationships, this statement is one that
is unspoken, but it needs to be un-
derstood. This may come as a shock
to those in a brand new relationship,
whether romantic or a friendship,
but those who have weathered a few
storms together have found this to.be
true. Your spouse, friend or family
member whom you love so much
is an imperfect person who will do
things at times that will hurt your
feelings. Great relationships are not
ones in which there is no conflict
or emotional pain, but one where
this is accepted as part of the pack-
age. People who insist on a pain-free
,life will continue to be frustrated on
every level and often end up isolat-
ing themselves from those who love
them most.
Accepting that those we love and
most desire to be with are imperfect
people who will cause us pain enables
us to deal with hurts when they come.
This understanding braces us against
the shock and feelings of betrayal
that someone who is "supposed" to
love us could actually hurt us. They
will.. .and so will we. When this hap-
pens, be honest about how you feel.
Pretending that something is "no big,
deal" when it really hurts won't help
it heal. It also doesn't give the other


person a heads up to something that
bothers you, and he or she will con-
tinue the offense, unaware of your
pain. Acknowledge the problem and
then offer forgiveness... according to
Christian psychologists Cloud and
Townsend, "Forgiveness is the way
we metabolize and remove waste
from a relationship."
In Ephesians 4:31-32, the Bible
warns us to "Get rid of all bitterness,
rage and anger, brawling and slander,
along with every form of malice. Be
kind and compassionate to one an-
other, forgiving each other, just as in
Clirist God forgave you."
. Bitterness is the result of unhealed
hurts...and while we often push the
blame off on the offender, these hurts
are ours to carry, and our responsi-
bility to resolve. If you realize this
and simply don't know what to do to
begin this process, get help...don't
leave it alone .and hope it will go
away...it won't. Bitterness left un-
tended escalates as the verse above
describes: into rage, anger and slan-
der. This process ends with mal-
ice.'..the point where you no longer
care. This is a lonely, isolated place
that leaves us feeling disconnected
and hopeless. Deal with your hurts
as they happen, and build or rebuild*
your relationships into ones that can
weather any storm...because your
heart matters. .
Blessings, Angie

Thanks
To all the fine citizens of Gilchrist
County, we would like to express our
deepest gratitude for the many things
you have done and said during our
family's difficult time.
Although we no longer live in
Gilchrist County, it was overwhelm-
ing to be comforted by so many
people that we know really care. Ev-
eryone has heard the phrase "There is
no place like home," but this is truly
home. There were so many visitors,
friends, and family, who donated
food supplies, tables, chairs, any-
thing and everything that could be
needed. Along with all of these mate-
rial things, there was an endless sup-
ply of comfort, prayers, smiles, tears,
and hugs.
We would like personally thank

Trenton Jr. FFA Chapter advisor plans to promote hands-on learning


Judy Overstreet holds up a vest she made for her granddaughter.

Overstreet shares passion

for crochet with her family


By Carrie A. Mizell
A treasured gift among the six
grandchildren of Louis and Judy
Overstreet is a hand crocheted blan-
ket woven with bright yam at the
hands of grandma.
Judy, who taught herself to crochet
the same way her mother had, can
also knit, embroider, sew and quilt,
though she will quickly tell you her
first love is crocheting.
From baby afghans, bed covers and
sweet little vests, when her grand-
children were small, to embroidered'
blankets, featuring wild game' and
pine trees for her oldest grandson,


who is now 19, the proud grandmoth-
er has made a little bit of everything.
Most recently, Judy, who worked
almost 34 years first as a media spe-
cialist and later as a guidance coun-
selor at Treiton Elementary School
before retiring in 2006-07, has fin-
ished a large University of Florida
afghan. Featuring three colors, white,
orange and blue, the afghan boasts
the University of Florida's logo. Judy
made the afghan for her grandson
Daniel, who is an avid Gator fan, and
presented it to him last Sunday after-
noon with the whole family gathered
around to enjoy dinner after church.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Learning to make muscadine jelly
the first week of school was a surprise
for many Trenton Middle School
agriculture students who picked up
some hands-on learning from new
Trenton Jr. FFA Chapter Advisor
Heather Rucker.
"I'm all about getting out of the
classroom," Rucker said.
The former Chiefland Jr. FFA
Chapter advisor said she wanted to
make jelly and process other goods
in the classroom during her five years
at Chiefland, but the technology and
facilities at the school were limited.
When longtime Trenton Jr. FFA
Chapter Advisor Steve Broker ac-
cepted the Sr. FFA Chapter Advisor's
position in August, his job opened
and Rucker jumped at the chance
to return to Trenton Middle-High
School where she had completed her
internship in 2003 under Michelle
Walker-Crawford.
Though it is still early in the school
year, Rucker and Broker are already
making plans for the Trenton FFA
chapters and the agriculture depart-
ment. Those plans include bring-
ing back chickens, refurbishing the
greenhouse, restoring membership
in the Trenton FFA Alumni and pro-
moting membership in the junior and
senior FFA chapters. Currently, there
are 36 members in the Trenton Jr.
FFA Chapter. Rucker has set a goal of
having 75 active members in 2008-
09.
Rucker is also rallying for the FFA
license plate after serving on an Agri-
science Education Leadership Team
last year that took her to Tallahassee
to hear Florida Commissioner of Ag-
riculture Charles Bronson promote


GILCHRIST COUNTY
ANIMAL SERVICES

'PET OF THE WEEK'


Caesar


the FFA license plate to legislators.
Bronson's speech left Rucker fired up
to return to Chiefland Middle School
where she had her junior chapter
members take part in a statewide
competition, "Plate for a Plate Chal-
lenge" which was initiated to help
spur sales of FFA license plates.
The contest, which' was hosted by
Commissioner Bronson, called FFA
chapters throughout the state to help
increase sales of the license plate,
which generates revenue for the
Florida FFA, local FFA members and
agriculture teachers in the state with
leadership activities.

loves to play ball and

let his looks fool you, he is a big baby.

many other beautiful animals at

Shelter.


352-463-3158.


In just two months, the Chiefland
Middle School FFA Chapter won the
contest ,by selling 56 license plates.


According to Rucker, the total num-
ber of FFA license plates sold through
the Chiefland chapter has since risen
to 83 after Central Florida Electric
Cooperative (CFEC) purchased tags
to put on all the company trucks.
CFEC has plans to purchase 25 ad-
ditional FFA tags for bucket trucks in
December, Rucker explained.
As a reward for selling the most
license plates during the contest,
Chiefland Junior FFA Chapter won a
"Fresh from Florida Feast" prepared
by award-winning Chef Justin Timin-
eri of the Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services, as
well as a "Field Day with Commis-
sioner Bronson."
In addition, Commissioner Bron-
son visited Chiefland Middle School
where he served as guest agriculture
teacher for a day.
"We are trying to get the word out
by promoting FFA tags," Rucker
said.
One gift certificate for an FFA li-
cense plate will be awarded to a high
school student this week, and an ad-
ditional gift certificate will be given
to an FFA alumni member attending
the first Trenton FFA Alumni Meet-
ing.
