Commission denies special use permit for water bottling plant


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
listened to citizens speak against the
request of Blue Springs Property, Inc.
to be granted a Special Use Permit to
have a multi-million dollar water bot-
tling plant constructed on a 30+ acre
parcel of land just inside Gilchrist
County on CR 340.
County Commissioners listened as
a quasi-judicial hearing was held on
Tuesday evening allowing the swear-
ing-in and cross-examination of peo-
ple providing testimony to the board
of commissioners.


The board voted twice to extend
the meeting by an hour, in hopes of
reaching decision in one meeting.
Ultimately, a motion was made by
Commissioner Randy Durden and
seconded by Commissioner Sharon
Langford to deny DMI/SUP-08-04
based on the general compatibility
and harmony with the uses and struc-
tures on adjacent and nearby prop-
erties, public infrastructure, safety
issues regarding trucks and lighting;
and not compatible with the Gilchrist
County Vision statement.
"Just because a water bottling fa-


cility was built in this area years ago,
doesn't mean that it is located in the
right place," Commissioner Randy
Durden said.
In a roll call vote, the board voted
4-1 to deny the Special Use Permit.
Commissioner Tommy Langford vot-
ed in support of granting the Special
Use Permit to Blue Springs Proper-
ties, Inc.
The Gilchrist County Commission
had students and a former county
elected official tell the commission
that the water bottling industry is not
a good business for Gilchrist County.


The meeting which began at 6 p.m.
had an estimated 250 people in atten-
dance to see what would be done with
this special use permit application.
Waters Lake resident Steve Glad-
den told the commission that Gil-
christ County 'was in need of com-
mercial and industrial development
and this business would provide an
estimated $750,000 annually to the
county treasury through ad valorem
and tangible property taxes. The pro-
posed business was estimated to have
over 100 new jobs, and the economic
impact to the economy would be a


beneficial boost at this time.
Blue Springs Properties, Inc. is
a family owned company with the
principal families living in Gilchrist
and neighboring Alachua counties.
Kim Davis, a partner in the owner-
ship and management, explained in
the meeting that her family would
not be building a water bottling plant
on the two properties identified in the
permit,
She pointed out that they are in ne-
gotiations with a company that would
enter into an agreement to build the
water plant once the special use per-


mit is approved. She was asked on
several occasions who that company
is; she pointed out that these negotia-
tions will remain private until an ap-
propriate time is reached.
The Gilchrist County Commission
in their Monday, Oct. 6, meeting ap-
proved a Final Order involving the
SSpecial Use Permit application from
Blue Springs Properties, Inc.
The applicant has 30 days to file an
appeal with the circuit court involv-
ing this Special Use Permit applica-
tion beginning Tuesday, Sept. 30,
2008.

For the second time in the last
three weeks volunteers at the Senior
Citizens Food Pantry in Trenton were
sickened to discover on Wednesday
that the non-profit food bank set up
to help those in need had been bur-
glarized.
According to volunteer Rick Wed-
er, the food bank was first robbed
on Sept. 16 of 300 pounds of frozen
meats and seafood, an empty safe,
and various items including a rep-
lica gun and fishing equipment all
of which had been donated for an
upcoming yard sale planned to help
raise funds for the food bank. In all,
Weder estimates that $500 to $600
worth of items were stolen.
"I'm just floored ... I mean we give
stuff away here everyday," Weder
said after the first break-in. "This is
the first time we've ever been broken
into."
Vandals struck a second time last
week, cleaning out the freezer once
again, while also taking snack food
items, a dolly and even a table.
The food bank, located at 112 NE
1st Avenue, is in the midst of fund-
raising; and the losses have really
impacted the. volunteers' supply of
food, which is given away daily no
questions asked to citizens in needs,
Weider explained.
Residential and commercial bur-
glaries are on the rise throughout
Gilchrist County.
According to Gilchrist County

A sign on the front door of the Se-
nior Citizens Food Pantry reads:
"Notice! Notice! You do not have
to break in and steal from us, just-
ask and we will give it to you.
Please do not destroy our lock
again!"


Senior Citizens Food Pantry volunteers Rick Weder, Chelsea Harmon and Rita Smith stand in front of an
empty freezer that once stored 300 pounds of meat and seafood.


Sheriff's Office (GCSO) call re-
ports, three commercial businesses
were burglarized during the month
of September, which is up from one
in August. Also, 11 more residential
burglaries were reported during the
month of September than what was
reported in August, GCSO Captain
Tony Cruse said.
"The burglaries are occurring all
over the county," Cruse said. "One
week the numbers will be higher in
southeast Gilchrist County and the
next week it will be higher in Rock
Bluff."
Though there may be no consistent
pattern, the cases of reported burglar-
ies continue to rise in 2008. Between
January 1, 2008 and September 30,
2008 deputies responded to 87 re-
ports of burglary to a residence and
17 reports of burglary to commercial
businesses. According to Cruse, a
total of 120 reports of burglary were
investigated in 2007 by GCSO.
Cruse maintained that GCSO in-
vestigators are actively working the
cases, but have found little simi-
larities in areas of occurrence or like


Oct. 5-11 officially named

Gilchrist County 4-H Week


The week of October 5 through 11
is National 4-H Week; and here in
Gilchrist County our clubs are cel-
ebrating by once again decorating the
courthouse lawn with scarecrows.
This is the third year the 4-H'ers
in the county have participated in the
scarecrow contest, and the goal is to
promote awareness among young
people and families in the county so
that any youth can join 4-H.
On Monday, some members of the
Gilchrist County 4-H Council attend-
ed the County Commission meeting
where the commissioners officially
declared it 4-H week in the county.
There are about 300 4-H club mem-
bers in Gilchrist County in 18 4-H
clubs.


The 4-H organization is the youth
component of the Cooperative Exten-
sion Service, which is a partnership
between the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture, the University
of Florida, and the Gilchrist County
Board of County Commissioners.
The four H's stand for Head, Heart,
Hands, and Health; and these repre-
sent the areas our youth develop
through 4-H.
In 4-H, young people "learn by
doing," developing a variety of life-
skills including leadership, citizen-
ship, record keeping, resource man-
agement and communication skills.
Most 4-H'ers learn these skills by
actively completing a 4-H project.

items being stolen.
Trenton Police Chief Billy Smith
said the Trenton Police Department
has increased patrols within the busi-
ness district after a rash of 10 com-
mercial burglaries during the month,
of September. According to Smith,
businesses burglarized included the
BP gas station, Trenton Food Store,
Progress Energy, City of Trenton's
Water Department, Subway, Larry's
Appliances and the Trenton Church
of Christ.
"We know these are young white
guys between 18 and 22 years old,"
Smith said.
Several images of the burglars were


captured on various surveillance vid-
eos, Smith explained. Those videos
have been sent to the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement lab.
"Someone knows who's doing
this," Smith said. "We just need
people to be neighborly and watch
out for other people's stuff. If you
see someone in your neighborhood
who you know shouldn't be there, or
if you see an unfamiliar car, call the
police."
Anyone with any information on
the recent string of burglaries is asked
to call the,Trenton Police Department
at 463-4010 or the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office at 463-3410.

Bell Health Academy: Meeting the Needs of the F


By David Gray
. The challenge to produce highly
trained medical professionals has
never been greater, and the students
enrolled at the Academy of Health
Related Professions at Bell High
School are working hard every day to
meet those challenges.
'The academy originated during the
1993-94 school year with a survey of
riddle and high school students to
see if there was an interest in health
careers. Initially, the program was
funded with a grant from the Suwan-
nee River Health Education Center
and matching funds from the Gil-
christ County School Board. Barbara
Richardson, the Executive Director
of the Suwannee River AHEC, at the
time, was essential in the implemen-
tation and assistance of the program's
beginnings.
The Health Occupations program
began in 1994-95 at Trenton High
School with ten students and a part-
time instructor, Denise Register. The
next year, Ms. Register taught classes


at both Bell and Trenton. In 1996, the
entire program moved to the Bell
High School campus, and Gilchrist
County was awarded one of only five
grants that year to begin the Academy
of Health Related Professions.
In 1998, the county received ad-
ditional funding from the Depart-
ment of Education's Special Facili-
ties Fund to build the current Health
Academy building. This building was
designed with three patient rooms
and a nurse's station to give students
plenty of hands on training while still
in high school. In addition, the build-
ing houses a science lab, a computer
lab, and three additional classrooms
for academic classes.
Enrollment in the Academy has
steadily grown over the years. This
year, there are 85 students in grades
9-12. Every spring, a new class of
freshman students is selected from
8th grade applicants at both schools.
Selection is based on grades, atten-
dance, behavior, and an interview
with the health academy faculty.


Once selected, students are expected
to maintain a high standard of perfor-
mance in all areas throughout their
high school career. The selection
process is also competitive. Last year
there were 54 applicants for 25 seats
available in the freshman class.
Once admitted, students take all
required courses for graduation,
plus one health science course each
year. During the senior year, stu-
dents choose a focused area of study
based on interest and aptitude. This
year's seniors were able to choose
from Certified Nursing Assistant
(CNA), Physical Therapy Assistant,
First Responder, Respiratory Techni-
cian, Dental Assisting, or Pharmacy
Technician. Half of the senior year is
spent in the classroom; the other half
is spent off campus in a clinical set-
ting.
In addition to the classroom work,
academy students participate and
compete with students from other
schools in the Health Occupations
Students of America, (HOSA).


Senior Stacey Phillips demonstrates proper mouth care on classmate
Stephanie Corbett.


HOSA is not a club to which a few
students in school join. Rather,
HOSA is a powerful instructional


tool that works best when it is inte-
grated into the classroom. The Health
Academy instructors are committed


to the development of the total per-
son. Those who partner with HOSA'
recognize the importance of provid-
ing students with training far beyond
the basic technical skills needed for
entry into the health care field. The
rapidly changing health care system
needs dedicated workers who, in ad-
dition to their technical skills, are
people-oriented and capable of shift-
ing easily from the role of a follower
to that of a leader.
All of this adds up to a tremen-
dous opportunity for the students of
Gilchrist County. The opening of Tri-
County Hospital in Chiefland will
create many jobs, and not only for
health care providers. Food service,
environmental services and mainte-
nance workers will also be needed.
The future has never looked brighter
for those seeking employment in the
health field and the students of the
Health Academy plan to be ready.

Surrounded by the council's col-
ors of purple and white, there was an
electrifying air of expectancy, which
permeated everyone's spirit who at-
tended the 5th annual "Community
Character Forum" held at the Trenton
Community Center on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 23.
After a good time of fellowship,
President Mary Dunn acted as mod-
erator of the program and welcomed
everyone. She introduced Commu-
nity Outreach Chair Jessie Lee, who
asked for a moment of silence in
memory of two recently departed Gil-
christ County citizens. He then gave
a word of encouragement, followed
by the invocation. Ms. Dunn led the
pledge of allegiance, which was fol-
lowed by a delicious supper of nine
different kinds of salads and six dif-
ferent specialty desserts, all prepared
by Character Council members.
After the meal, encouraging and
enlightening talks were presented
by the following speakers, County
Commissioner Tommy Langford,
who spoke on the need for the ex-
pression of good character in gov-
ernment practices; Mrs. Jo Buckles,
Administrator of Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation Center,-'gave details
on how positive "c cracter- wdrks,
so well in the business sector; Rev-
erend Merle Goodrich, pastor of
the Nazarene Church, explained
to listeners the need for excellent
character in one's personal life;
Dr. Jim Surrency, Assistant School
Board superintendent, shared the
need to continue with character edu-
cation in the school board and in the
classroom; and lastly, Cadet Sgt. Ma-
jor Clint Wood showed the audience
'examples of what is being taught in
the Bell High School JROTC pro-
gram.
The highlight of the evening was a
DVD of instrumental *music and nar-
rated poem presentation prepared by
council members Dale and Donna
Murray. The presentation depicted,
the seven year history of the Gilchrist
County Character Council. Every-
one rewarded the presentation with
a wonderful show of approval with a
.grand applause.
To culminate the forum, Coun-


cil Historian Diane Rondolet gave a
personal review of her five years of
.activity in Council. She then moder-
ated a question and answer period,
followed by a "new attendee to the
forum" information packets, which
were distributed by Council Vice
President Pete Randolph.
The 2008 Community Character
Forum was truly a successful event
and everyone who came was urged to
continue their support in such worthy
projects, which the council plans to
continue sponsoring throughout the
year and beyond.

Now atAd 7Thet

By Carrie A. Mizell


Over the last 10 months I have eat-
en my weight in homemade salsa and
tortilla chips, greasy corn dogs, and
Cracker Barrel root beer.
Finally, with the end of pregnancy
in sight I can honestly thank God
for the buffet pants with the stretchy
waistband I have been wearing while
wistfully looking forward to wearing
something ... anything with a but-
ton.
Lord (and Dr. Eduardo Marichal)
willing, baby Allie has arrived by
the time you are reading this column.
Being the compulsive planner that
I am, I just knew Allie would come
early and surprise us (most likely
on a Tuesday). But she has held out
and surpassed her due date, therefore
becoming a prime candidate for an
induction, which was scheduled for
Wednesday morning.
Could I just say there is nothing
that could make my little newspaper
family any happier than knowing that
we could complete this week's is-
sue of the paper on Tuesday before
giving birth on Wednesday. As my
grandfather "PePa" Ayers would un-
doubtedly say, "We have to get our
priorities right!"
I am so blessed to have had the


easiest pregnancy. I haven't been
sick one day or noticed any swell-
ing, just a lack of energy over the last
two weeks. All of which is a bless-
ing since I vowed that I would not be
one of those moms-to-be who whine
about how awful "it" is. I know
you've seen the type I'm referring
to, just dragging themselves into the
doctor's office or the grocery store
with no make-up on and a dirty pony
tail while sporting their husband's
oversized t-shirt, and pajama pants.
Adam and I have been living in
Trenton at mom and dad's house for
the last two weeks awaiting Allie's
arrival, and I have to tell you we're
a little spoiled by all the good cook-
ing. A- few more days of homemade
soup, pancakes, peach cobbler, and
chicken and dumplings; and I might
have had to wear Adam's fishing t-
shirts. "Mam," as mom has decided
she would like to be called, has been
cooking up a storm for Adam, secur-
ing points or as they jokingly say

SLetters to the Editor


Letter to the Editor
Gilchrist
Commissioners:
I read in the Gilchrist- County
Journal article of October 2nd, the
approved plan of Gilchrist and Ala-
chua Counties (Commissioners), the
paving of SE 90th Avenue, the coun-
ty line road from Rt. 26 to 4.5 miles
south.
What happened to the north side
of Rt. 26, which is a 1/4 mile of the
same street?
I think we have suffered a lot of
dust during dry periods. The 'county
keeps grading the road in question
and now the hard limerock is already
very thin. We experience flooding
going to our driveway during rains.
We feel left out.
We also pay so much taxes but
we do not get any service at all. Our
trash is privately collected. We do not
feel we belong to this county. I have
stopped attending commissioners'
meetings.
i I hope to be heard before they will
fnally approve the funding and start
the job. Thank you so much..
Very sincerely yours,
Mercedes M. Flores
Newberry, Florida


Time on Task policy
Dear Editor,
I am requesting all Bell and Tren-
ton school parents attend the next
school board meeting on October 21,
at 6 p.m., or call their school board
representative to protest the "Time on
Task" policy.
Our bands have the opportunity
to march in the Gator Homecoming
Parade, and the request was denied
due to the "Time on Task" policy of
the school board. The Bell Band is
scheduled to miss 4 classes this year
(2 of which are band), for concert re-
hearsals; and the Trenton Band has
requested 1 day of classes missed for
Regional. That is It! no other time
away from class has been requested.
Our children work very hard arid
put in many hours of their free time
to be a part of their band family. Per-
forming in the Gator Homecoming
Parade would allow our students ex-
posure to the University of Florida,
the opportunity to perform for a large
crowd outside their county, build the
confidence they need to succeed, and:
Instill great pride for their county and.
schools. Not to mention, it will give
our bands regional recognition at a
financially crucial time.
Our band programs need money to,
purchase and maintain uniforms and

Something people don't know
about you? "I've been playing

have the dollars to budget for this ex-
pense; therefore, the band students
and booster members must be proac-
tive in our fundraising efforts. We
are counting on support from our sur-
rounding corporate businesses and
sponsors.
Many other athletic programs and

days, of class for their events. I do
not understand why one is more im-

Favorite food: Pizza


any of your readers would argue
against the fact that our band stu-

Please support our students and
request the School Board abolish the

StreetwseBy Lauren Rudd


Yes, October is upon us once again,
that time of the year when trees dis-
play their fall colors and pumpkins
debut as pumpkin pie. It is also the
most dreaded month in the annals of
investing, the month of black Mon-
days.
Does October really deserve its rot-
ten reputation? Yes, if the past week's
debacle is any indication. However,
I am getting ahead of myself. There
is still prior justification for the bad
rap, given the great Crash in Octo-
ber of 1929, even though historically
September is 4 worse month for Wall
Street.
More recent,, but still only history
book material for most of those cur-
rently working (or laid off) on Wall
Street today is the decline on Octo-
ber 19, 1987 that sent the Dow down
23 percent or 508 points, and:resulted
in the initiation of this column. Of
course, we cannot forget the rela-
tively minor "October massacres" of
1978, 1979, 1989 and 1997.
While you should probably view
October's overall reputation in the
same light as those ghosts and gob-
lins that will come knocking on your
door on Halloween, at the same time
keep in mind that Wall Street is an in-
herently forward-looking animal. In
economics we call it a leading indi-
cator. However, if Wall Street is any-
thing, it is fickle; and sentiment on
Wall Street can reverse in the blink
of an eye.
The critical factor in all this is to
ask if there is any connection be-
tween what happened in 1987 and
what happened this past week. It ap-
pears there are, some unfortunate but
definite parallels. Initial blame for the
1987 crash centered on the interplay
between the stock market and index
options futures. Let me summarize it
for you in two words...leverage and


Who is The Lord That I Should Obey His Voice?
(Kent Heaton)


When Moses came to Pharaoh the first time and
pleaded for the release of the people of God, Pharaoh said,
"Who is the Lord that I should obey His voice to let
Israel go? I do not know the Lord, nor will I let Israel
go" (Exodus 5:2). Pharaoh would eventually let the people
go after the Lord God brought pestilence upon the
Egyptians and finally the death of the firstborn (Exodus
7-12). The pagan worship of Egypt was polytheistic with
gods to the sun (Re), the earth (Yeb), the moon (Thoth),
the Nile (Hapi), and the god of hidden powers (Amon).
The King of Egypt would not acknowledge the Creator
and thus rejected Him.
The spirit of Pharaoh continues today. Even among
religious groups obedience to the Lord is questioned. Man
has the view of self-worth and self-exaltation that hinders
him from seeing the one true God. Two views exist in the
world: the view of man and the view of God. When men
begin to examine the view of God they learn that man is
not the center of the universe but God. The scriptures
demand obedience to God's will and rejects the whims of
men. Generations question who God is and seek their own
ways. The root of the problem is the rejection of the
knowledge of God.
Pharaoh said, "I do not know the Lord." The apostle
Paul described this spirit in his letter to the Roman church.
"For even though they knew God, they did not honor
Him as God or give thanks, but they became futile in
their speculations, and their foolish heart was darkened
... For they exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and
worshiped and served the creature rather than the
Creator ... they did not see fit to acknowledge God any
longer" (Romans 1:21, 25, 28). Many today can know the
Lord through the things that are seen but refuse to give


honor to Creator. The philosophies of men are sought after
instead of the wisdom of God. The truth is evident but
exchanged for the lie that man is his own god. God is no
longer acknowledged.
This is evident in our society today that continues to
break down all of the pillars of morality with the refusal to
acknowledge God. Homosexuality is the form, adultery is
common, divorce is expected, greed is the fuel driving our
financial markets, murder of the innocent continues
unabated and the true religion of the one God is ridiculed
into abandonment. Jehovah God destroyed Egypt and
made them a base nation (Ezekiel 29:14-15). They stand as
testimony today of that fulfillment. Our nation will suffer
the same destruction.
When the Son of God returns, He will bring judgment
upon those "that do not know God" (2 Thessalonians 1:8).
The majority of people will reject the knowledge of God
and be lost (Matthew 7:13,14). "For since the creation of
the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and
divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood
through what has been made, so that they are without
excuse" (Romans 1:20). Pharaoh rejected the one true God
because he did not know Him. He was without excuse. We
can reject God through our ignorance but we will be
without excuse. Every evidence of God has been given to
man (Psalm 19).
Satan began his temptation of Eve by saying, "Has God
indeed said?" (Genesis 3:1). The deceiver of this world
continues to work his deception today. As men reject God,
He rejects them. Do you believe in the one true God? Will
you be obedient to the one true God? There is only one
way to eternal life. That is Jesus Christ (John 14:6).

greed. A simplistic explanation is that
you control a lot of something, while
putting up relatively little cash or eq-
uity.
Another ,important trigger back
in 1987 mas the announcement of a
large U.S. trade deficit on October
14, which led then Treasury Secre-
tary James Baker to suggest the need
for a decline in the value of the dollar
on foreign exchange markets. Is any
of this beginning to have a familiar
ring?
What had been hoped for was that
the 1987 crash would teach politi-
cians the need for initiating a new
era of discipline within the financial
markets. At this point I am not sure if
I should be crying or laughing.
It seems that time veils the mem-
ory, especially that of former Sena-
tor Phil, "we are a nation of whin-
ers" Gramm, now a leading light in
presidential politics and a hopeful
contender for the position of Secre-
tary of the Treasury. It was Gramm
who in his Senate days took special
care to prevent oversight of financial
derivatives.
Nonetheless, the intricacies and
intrigue of Wall Street were not a
major topic for the evening news on
Main Street...credit swaps, a totally
unregulated, highly leveraged and
little understood derivative, which
along with a series of acronyms, such
as MBS, CMO and CDO, were ma-

COOKING AND


CARRYING' ON


By Cindy Jo Ayers


Fall is in the air; fat orange pump-
kins, jars of candy corn, juicy red
apples, sweet potatoes, golden rod
in full bloom and fall leavesof every
color.
It's time for hay rides, trick-or-
treating and huntin' season. It is also
time for all manner of fall gardening,
the season to plant those greens, car-
rots and cabbages.
Weed pulling time has arrived, time
to clear out all those pesky weeds
which have taken over our flower
beds in the hot months of August and
September.
This is the season for a little fall
decorating, pretty bundles of dried
Indian corn with the shucks pulled
back and tied with a burnt orange
bow. Our window sills are lined with
baby pumpkins sitting all in a row,
and our family rooms are filled with
the scent of cinnamon candles.
This is the season for rolling out
apple tart dough, dipping candy
apples, and chopping pecans for the
too rich for words pecan dessert that
follows. This recipe is for the serious
dessert eater. What could be richer
than a combination of cheese cake
and pecan pie whipped unto a won-
derfully rich fall dessert bar?
jor contributors to a contagion that
first decimated Wall Street and then
proceeded to endanger every Main
Street across the globe.
So where are we today, or more
specifically, what actions should you
be taking in terms of your portfolio.
Assuming you have not totally liqui-
dated your holdings, as some are rec-
ommending, and either put the cash
under a mattress or in Treasury secu-
rities, which will yield you a negative
return after inflation, the answer is
to sit back and do nothing. Wait un-
til the circus in Congress concludes
with the passage of the bailout pack-
age and its members return home. to
face their constituents and,,for many,
reelection.
Above all, do not let yourself be
unduly swayed by the negativism
that currently surroundsthe financial
markets. Investing can be deadly if
you dance along with the crowd for
no other reason than to join in. What
is important is what you can realisti-
cally expect from a specific company
in terms of earnings over the next 12
to 18 months.

o Daniel SLAUGHTER for Gilchrist County Sheriff


Dear Voter

For over 20 years I have worn the uniform of a trusted lawman. During

my years of service, I have gained valuable experience and knowledge

in all aspects of law enforcement. I have been trusted to do the right

thing when it comes to protecting those in need, or enforcing the lawy

against those who have broken it. I assure you that I believe in impor-

tant values such as acting with integrity and demonstrating respect. I

also recognize exceptional Law Enforcement is about understanding

difficult situations, working for strong community relationships, and en-

suring the safety of our citizens.

My desire to become your Sheriff is based on my vision to provide a:

truly professional and responsive agency that meets the present and


future needs of our growing community.


Now more than ever Gilchrist


County needs a dedicated, trained and hands-on leader with extensive

law enforcement experience who understands the day-to-day law en-


forcement operations.

I plan to lead the Sheriff's Office by my example and will empower all the men and women of the

'Wedcing bells at Tri County
Nursing Hfome


Mr. and Mrs. Tommie Cannon.


By Bonnie Wilson
Tri-County Nursing Home had
both the pleasure and honor of hav-
ing a wedding at their facility on
September 19, 2008. Mrs. katherine
Blindbury, a resident of Tri-County,
proudly announced that her daugh-
ter Mrs. Linda C. Matthews was to
marry Mr. Tommie G. Cannon. The
presiding pastor was Mr. Rob Doran
of Otter Creek. Mr. Hazie Cannon of
Chiefland, nephew to Mr. Cannon,
was the best man.
The residents of Tri-County Nurs-
ing Home and fellow staff along with
family members were present for the
wedding ceremonies. Chris Dunn,
Activity Director and a few staff
members assisted in planning a wed-
ding altar befitting the happy bride
and groom.
Ms. Linda Matthews made a
picture perfect bride in a stunning
beaded, beige dress. She states she
met her handsome husband, Tommie
Cannon, in Winn Dixie while
shopping for groceries. Little did


she know on aisle three there was a
bargain on husband material. Linda
and Tommie were both widowed
and soon discovered they had more
than groceries in common. Although
Tommie is from Chiefland, the happy
couple will live in Trenton, where
the bride resides. I can see that this
will be a great match as Tommie is
a considerate groom and has already
allowed Linda to choose their living
accommodations. He also realized
that the'mother of the bride would not
be able to travel to another location
to see her daughter marry him. His
thoughtfulness and consideration
towards his new mother-in-law's
health was extremely kirid. With
decisions made and thought out
easily as this, the bride and groom
now known as Mr. and Mrs. Tommie
Cannon, will have many successful
and happy years ahead of them. We
at Tri-County Nursing Home are
very happy to have been blessed with
being a small part of their wedding
day.

The Lady Tigers took on the Lady
Bulldogs for the second -time this
season. On Tuesday, September 30th
Trenton Volleyball traveled up to
Bell's home court. The Tigers swept
the match again with three wins, 25-
22, 25-18, and 25-22. The Bulldogs
displayed excellent sportsmanship
and competitiveness. They proved to
their coaches and their fans that they
had come to play. You can tell by the
close scores, this was no blow out! In


fact, Bell led at least once during the
night.
Volleyball is no different than any
other team sport; no one person,
alone, carries the entire team. It is a
team, and every single rally is a team
effort.
A few of the stand-out players for
Trenton were; Shelby Stone who led
the team in kills with 15 kills, 2 digs;
Ashley Manos 9 kills, 5 digs; and
Amanda Harmer 3 kills, 4.digs, 1
block. Kanece Richardson led the

followed closely behind by the Ti-
gers' defensive specialist, Amanda
Schwieterman with 6 digs and 1 ace.
Alexis Dixon led the team in assists
with 20 total for the night.
Some of Bell'A key players were;
Holli Moore leading the Lady Bull-
dogs in kills with 11 kills, 2 aces;
Samantha Williams 9 kills, 12 digs,
2 aces; Nikki Yencho 11 digs, no
errors, 2 aces; and senior setter, Catie
Cason led in assists with 9 assists, 3
kills, 3 digs.
Many people"take for granted the
amount of skill and effort that goes
into a volleyball game. Many of us
assume it's no different than playing
in the backyard over the tattered and
torn net we have strung between two
-poles with concreted car tires at the
bottom. We would stretch something
across the pool, then try to decide
le 'team- who was going to get to play in the
shallow end, and who had to tufff
ton s- it out' in the deep end. These girls
spend hours upon hours practicing
and preparing for not only the physi-
cal demands of the game but also
for the mental strains that canr show
up during a match. Just the same as
a quarterback, still having to get his
play called off when he has a stadium
full of screaming, fans, the server in
Volleyball has to stay focused and
serve 'her' serve, blocking every-
thing else out.
Many things have changed over the
years in the sport of volleyball; it has

spark a little curiosity, if nothing else,
and maybe get some more people out
to the games. Support your local ath-
letes every chance you get, not just
your favorite sport. You might learn
something, and who knows, your fa-
vorite sport might change.


come well beyond its two original
rules don't let it hit the ground and
get it over the net. They have 'Rally
Scoring' which was made manda-
tory in the 2004-05 year. Rally scor-
ing simply means 'a point is scored
on every rally by someone,' not just
the serving team. The Defensive Spe-
cialist or Libero is a new addition,
introduced almost a decade ago; the
position of the Libero has made its
way into high school volleyball. The
Libero has more restrictions on her
position such as 'not being able to
attack the ball' and 'not being able
to block the ball' so you will not see
the Libero playing the net. She must
wear a different color or color scheme
than the rest of her teammates. She
does have advantages however, (Li-
bero is Italian for Free) She is able to
replace any other player on the court
without limits. Other players have a
limited number of substitutions per
game/set.
There are other changes, such as
the ball being allowed to hit the net
on the serve, as long as it still goes
over. The newest change, being
brand new to 2008, is the shift from
30 point games to 25 point games.
This was to 'cause more crowd in-
volvement and excitement' and to
'increase the urgency and importance
of each point.' No more coasting for
the first 10 points and then deciding
it's time to play.

hope for writing this article was to

a 42-0 thrashing last year and the Ti-
gers had not forgotten it.
Trenton's scoring got started when
Tiger punter, Brandon Stone, picked
up the loose snap and ran 80 yards'
for a touchdown. Stone had one oth-i
er rushing touchdown and teammate
Cedric Stokes had a rushing touch-!
down. Quarterback Jonathan Smithi
connected with brother Stepheni
Smith on a slant pass inside the 5!
yard line for a score. Hunter Parrish:
also caught a Smith pass for a two-'
point conversion. The offensive line!
protected Smith all night and opened
up holes for the running backs. *}
Defensively, the Tigers didn't letf
the Bucs hit paydirt. Defensive en4
Corbin Wiggins had a sack on the'
Buc's quarterback. Trenton's line-
backers made tough tackles all night;
led by Breon Sims and Hunter Par4:
rish. Trenton's defensive front had
another great game. Trenton won
32-0 and improved to 4-0.
Trenton travels to Mayo this Thurs-
day to take on the Hornets. Come outC
and support the Tigers.


It has been very rewarding to meet so many citizens of Gilchrist County over the
last couple of months. Prior to my campaign most of the people I saw on a daily
basis were involved in the criminal justice system in one way or another. And
while I have met with so many voters, and will be visiting with as many more as
I possibly can, there is no way to see everyone.


I know deciding who to vote for is a challenging and important decision. If you
have questions or concerns or would just like me to stop by and visit, please don't
hesitate to call. It would be my honor to meet with you and discuss the future of
law enforcement in this great county we all call home. I am always available, just
as I will be if I am elected as your Sheriff. I can be reached at 352-219-3325.

City of Gainesville joined forces with Alachua County Fire Rescue
to promote fire safety. The firefighters taught the students to Stop,

alarms had batteries. With the help of Sparky the dog, the students
learned not to touch matches and to stay low in afire. Kindergarten
teachers learned to PASS-Pull, Aim, Spray, and Sweep with fire

Fall is in the air...and ushering in
all the excitement of this time of year.
Hunting season, campfires, harvest
festivals and the upcoming holidays
are just around the corer! On a more
serious note, October is Breast Can-
cer Awareness Month...except for
cancers of the skin, breast cancer is
the most common cancer in women
in the United States. According to
the American Cancer Society, about
240,000 women will be diagnosed
with non-invasive and invasive breast
cancer in the US each year. Men can
also develop breast cancer, although
it is much less common. Each year,
an estimated 2,000 men are diag-
nosed with breast cancer in the US.
Learning that someone you love
has cancer is overwhelming...after
the initial shock, the first question we
ask ourself is "What can I do?" How
well we answer that question makes
a huge difference in the way we and
our loved one faces the challenges
ahead. In the Old Testament book of
Ecclesiastes, the Bible records the
practical and spiritual wisdom of the
wisest of men, Solomon...
"Two are better than one. because,
'they have a good return for their
.work; If one falls down, his friend
can help him up. But pity the man
who falls and has no one to help him
up! Though one may be overpow-
ered, two can defend themselves. A
cord of three strands is not quickly
broken." (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10,12)
Life is designed for companion-
ship, not isolation. We may never un-
derstand that more than when facing
cancer. A few years ago, I received
the news that a long time friend was
facing this battle, and I asked the in-
evitable question...what could I do?
Her family rallied close and tended to
her most urgent and intimate needs...
so would I do better to stay out of the
way? She wasn't someone I saw or
was in touch with on a daily or even
weekly basis. In fact, the once-a-
month prayer breakfast that she host-
ed at her home for a small group of us
was about the only time we crossed
paths'ht this point in our lives.
As a group, we decided to continue
the monthly breakfast meetings as
long as she was up to it. We also de-
cided to get informed and know what-
we were up against. We chose a book
called "Getting Better, Not Bitter:
A Spiritual Prescription for Breast
Cancer" written by Brenda Ladun.
Reading the book together and dis-
cussing it helped us understand what
Trenton's Down Home

The FAITHH van
coming to Bell
The Catholic Charities FAITHH
van will be at the clubhouse in Bell
for their monthly call on October 16th
at 9:30 a.m. to distribute food and
other items to those needing some
help in tough times.
This effort is also supported by
the San Juan Catholic Mission in


our friend was facing, how she might
be feeling, and that it was okay for
us to talk openly with her. We also
learned that it was not only okay, but
necessary to continue enjoying life.
When our friend began to lose her
hair from the chemo and was strug-
gling to adjust to "wig-wearing," we
all showed up at her house for our
breakfast meeting with the most hor-
rific wigs you ever saw...she laughed
until she cried (so did we!) and then
commented that she felt much bet-
ter about wearing her wig when she
saw how bad we looked in ours! I
have a picture of that "hair show" in
my office,.and it never fails to make
me laugh. Not only did our relation-
ship with each other strengthen,but
God used this struggle to increase
our faith. We rejoice that our friend
is now cancer free, and we treasure
a wealth of memories from that time
together.
Remember, there is nothing you
can say or do to "fix" things...and
no one expects you to. Just be hon-
est... let your loved one know that
you aren't sure what to do, but that
you care and are available...because
their heart matters to you!
Blessings,
Angie

4-Pets Sake news
If you called us a few weeks ago
inquiring about a spay or neuter,
chances are you were asked, to call
back in about three weeks because
we were running low in funds. Due
to an abundance of surgeries, we had
to stop taking calls.


Eddie Jean Williams, Mary Jo Man-
sfield, Billie Sue Johnson, and Delia
Long.
Alphonso Johnson served as a pre-
senter; Rosa Rutledge and Eddie Jean
Williams served as facilitators; Mary
Jo Mansfield said grace before lunch;
and Delia Long substituted for Billie


Well, we had a yard sale and re-
ceived a few sizable donations. Our
program is now open and we are able
to do twenty surgeries. Thus, so far,
our total of spays and neuters are
635, not bad.
This is in the discussion stage, but
possibly November or December

Trenton defeats Bronson in Homecoming celebration


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers grounded the
Bronson Eagles Friday night as they
celebrated Homecoming 2008 with a
21-14 victory.
The Tiger's quarterback Caleb
Smith put the offense in motion as he
hit Jimmy Bogarde on a 12-yard pass
for the first points of the game. This
touchdown mark capped a 12-play
drive for the Tigers. Smith caught an-
other one of his receivers on the con-
version .attempt as Trevor Pelphrey
pulled in a short toss from the QB for
the 8-0 lead. The Tigers held a slim
edge at intermission as the home-
coming festivities were beginning to
explode with excitement. The Tigers
fans were standing everywhere as the
Trenton side of the stadium was over
flowing with homecoming specta-
tors.
Tiger Homecoming
(Continued from page 1)
third place was the 11th grade class.
Winners of the hall decorations
were in first place the l1th grade
class, in second place the fifth grade
class and in third place the eighth
grade class.


The Tigers' leading rusher C.J.,
Bowers was injured and not dressed
for this game. He was involved in the
Homecoming festivities that resulted
in Jasmine Powell being announced
Homecoming Queen 2008. The
Tiger's Russel Williams had been
crowned king on Thursday night
during the annual Tiger Growl. The
Tigers fans were excited as the third
quarter got underway as Trenton held
an 8-0 lead.
The Eagles were poised in the
opening minutes of the second half
as Kelly Barber cut the Tigers lead to
2 points when he scored on a 1-yard
run. The point after failed as Trenton
held onto their 2-point margin. I
The Tigers' offense was explosive
as Smith orchestrated another Tren-
ton drive that sophomore Corbyn
Pugh put the finishing touches on as
he scored on a 1-yard run. The extra
point kick failed as Trenton increased
their lead to 14-6. As the fourth peri-
od got underway, the Tiger fans could
smell a hint of victory in the air as
the Tigers' offense was still moving
the football.
In the opening minutes of the fi-
nal period, Smith took the Tigers
through the Eagles defense that was


capped with another Trenton touch-
down. Smith connected with Aaron
Avila on a 9-yard pass to give the
fans some breathing room on their
20-6 lead. The Tigers' kicker added
the extra point for the 21-6 edge. The
Tigers' defense bottled up the Eagles'
offense as Trenton got the ball back
with 7:00 left in the game. Smith was
again working the Tigers' offensive
magic as the Eagles picked up a Tren-
ton fumble. Bronson's Mike Sinclair
outran the Tigers for 50 yards for the
Eagles' touchdown. Bronson was
able to complete the 2-point conver-
sion to cut the Tigers' lead to 21-14.
The Eagles came right back and
thought they were going to pickup on
offense again, but Trenton recovered
an onsides kick and ran out the clock
for the win.
Trenton's first year head coach
Chris Baker was excited about his Ti-
gers' victory as he was quoted by Cliff
Olsen of the Gainesville Sun, "This is
as proud of any team as I have ever
been." Baker and the Tigers got their
first sweet taste of victory in the 21-
14 Homecoming victory.
Trenton's offensive leaders Cor-
byn Pugh and Caleb Smith, put a
Tiger offensive on track that. made
things happen on Friday night. Pugh,
the Tigers' sophomore, running back,
.rushed for 97 yards and a touchdown
on 26 carries. Caleb Smith completed
6 of 9 passes with 2 touchdowns as
the Tigers rallied for over 300 yards
of offense.
Trenton's Jimmy Bogarde was the
leading headhunter on defense as the
'linebacker had 7 tackles. Michael El-
liott and Travis Session each record-
ed 6 tackles each for the Tigers. Tren-
ton limited the Eagles to 50 yards of
rushing on 15 carries.
The Tigers will host Hawthorne
Friday night as the (2-3) Hornets sit
poised for the District showdown.
This game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m.

4-H Week observed
Oct. 5-11
(Continued from page 1)
The 4-H projects most. popular in
Gilchrist County include raising a
market hog or steer, poultry, vegeta-
ble gardening, sewing, woodwork-
ing, citizenship and public speaking.
The very high quality of 4-H op-
portunities in Gilchrist County is
possible because of the hard work
and determination of some very spe-
cial 4-H volunteer leaders.
This year the highlight of 4-H week
in Gilchrist County comes on Satur-
day night, when our 4-Hers will pres-
ent the "Grand Ole Gilchrist Opry,"
a dinner theater celebrating the old
Grand Ole Opry radio shows.
For more information about 4-H in
Gilchrist County, call.463-3174.


The senior class decorated the first place float in the Homecoming parade. The float featured an eagle tied
to the front of a locomotive driven by a Tiger.


Trenton High School Reunion planned for Oct. 18


Come join us and greet your old
classmates and friends at the Trenton
High School reunion on October 18,
2008.
Graduates representing the THS
classes of 1958, 1959, 1961 and 1968
will gather at the Trenton Elementary
School Cafeteria to renew old ac-
quaintances.
A time of fellowship will begin at
noon and a catered lunch by the Red
Wagon Wheel Cookhouse will be
served at 1 p.m. Following the $15
lunch, the different classes will be
recognized.
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 and the impact the education
they received made on their lives.


Sadly more graduates who moved
away make a point to attend the an-
nual reunion than graduates who still
live in the area.
However, Harrison hopes know-
ing 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, call Diana
at 463-2147.
