By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Solid Waste
facility east of Bell reported that
two inmates that were members of
a work squad from Lancaster Cor-
rectional Institute in Trenton were
reported missing when a roll call was
conducted at 9:30 a.m. Monday. The
inmates arrived at the recycling fa-
cility at 9:00 a.m. as members of a
work squad involved, in community
service.
The inmates Matthew Wean, 19


and Shane Ross, 20 were identified as
missing from their work detail. "The
Gilchrist County Solid Waste Facil-
ity was closed immediately and the
Department of Corrections was made
aware of the escape within minutes
following the roll call, "reported Ron
McQueen, Gilchrist County Admin-
istrator. The two inmates were locat-
ed within one quarter of a mile north-
east of the recycling facility Monday
morning after a team of Department
of Corrections staff and local law en-

Another.classic homecoming was.
celebrated at Bell High School this
past week October 6 through 10,
with Bell students and faculty shar-
ing their musical talents as-young
and old alike enjoyed participating to
this year's homecoming theme; Bull-
dog Jukebox: A Musical Celebration!
Students dressed in their favorite mu-
sic genres during spirit week, from
country singers and hip-hop artists
to classic rockers and Hannah Mon-
tana.
On Thursday night, the Bell com-
munity came out in droves to watch
the Bulldog Growl in the Iris Roberts
Auditorium. Bulldog Growl host Brad
Surrency and fellow teacher Jason
Johnson humorously started things
off by singing "Wonder Boy" by the
group Tenacious D, but the real en-
tertainment was provided by different
grades and organizations who came
up with skits that were especially en-
tertaining and funny. Everything that
you could think of from the Health
Academy doing a Jonas Brothers
impersonation, the BHS Volleyball
team teasing the football players,
and the Senior class doing their own

Evolution of Dance. Even.the Bell
High School Faculty All-Stars, led by
our very own Mr. Reed, showed the
crowd how to dance and get funky!
The BHS Junior class took first place
in the skit contest with a very funny
look at some Bell coaches, teachers,
and the high school guidance coun-
selor doing a stint on television's So
You Think You Can Dance.
The highlight of the Thursday
night was the crowing of Olivia Bai-
ley and Jamie Royster the Middle
School Princess and Prince, they
were crowned by last year's winners
Reilee Moore and Aaron White.
Friday's Homecoming Parade was
another great community' event with
almost 40 entries and floats involved.
Music, dancing, and Guitar Hero
wereall around as the parade moved
smoothly down Hwy. 129. The sixth
grade class from Bell Middle School
came in third place, having the larg-
est jukebox float in the parade. In
second place were the 2009 Seniors
with their Guitar Hero themed float.
Finally, the BHS Health Academy
placed first with their rendition of
Michael Jackson's "Thriller" as they
thrilled the judges with their Hallow-
een decorated float and their fabulous
choreographed dance.
Friday night's Pre-game Home-
coming festivities showed off the al-
ways-classy Homecoming attendants
and king and queen contestants.
As the Purple Powerhouse March-
ing Band formed a heart and played
Disney's A Whole New World, Bell's
6th through 11th grade attendants
showed off their style to the stand-
ing only crowd. As the senior king
and queen contestants walked onto
the field, you could feel the antici-
pation from the crowd as last year's
reigning Bell High School King and
Queen, CJ Harris and Ashley Gauthi-
er, came to crown their replacements.
The crowd erupted in loud cheers,
as Chris Landrum and Holli Moore

Williston

child killed in

utility vehicle

accident

Friday night

By John M. Ayers
A Williston. child who was rid-
ing with an adult was unable to free
himself when a Polaris utility vehicle
drove into a rockpit Friday night.
Florida Highway Patrol reported that
a family friend, Michael J. Hollihan,
52, of Williston was driving the utility
vehicle when he and Aaron D. Ford,
3, were riding on private property just
before 10:00 p.m. The man and child
were riding in a wooded area esti-
mated to be 1 mile north of Williston.
The entrance to this area is across the
highway from Williston Door Com-
pany just off CR 121 at 5550 NE CR
121. Hollihan was reported to have
been riding through this area when he
drove off into a derelict rockpit that
was filled with water.
The utility vehicle was reported
to have dropped off an underwater
ledge and flipped upside down. The
driver was able to escape from the
vehicle and look for the passenger
before swimming to shore When he
was unable to locate the child, Hol-
lihan went to find help.
A 911 call was received at 10:55
p.m. by Levy communication center.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office
Special Operation's dive team went
to the scene and searched the pit for
the wreckage. The passenger was lo-
cated submerged near the utility ve-
hicle an estimated 3.hours after the
incident occurred. Longtime Levy'

ber Lt. Scott Finnen was the diver
who pulled the child from the water.
Levy County Emergency Medical
Service was on scene and pronounced
the youth deceased when the body
was recovered.

Structure fire destroys mobile home

in north Gilchrist Thursday night


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Fire Rescue
was called to a structure fire at 3540
NE 41st St. High Springs, off of SR
47 Thursday evening, reported Don
Alexander of Station 3. This fire was
reported to have originated from the
middle area of the residence and was
reported to have been of electrical or-
igin and remains under investigation.
Gilchrist County Fire Service and
Trenton Volunteer Fire departments
responded to the scene with five units
as Gilchrist County Emergency Med-


ical Service also had a rescue unit at
the location.
Alexander reported that at 9:50
p.m. Thursday he received a vibra-
tion over his fire service communica-
tion equipment. He explained the fire
service frequencies had been having
some communication problems last
week, but on this call he only received
a vibration and no way to confirm
back to dispatch that he received the
contact. He explained that he imme-
diately called 911 Dispatch back via
landline to confirm the fire involving


the residence. Alexander then left
Station 3 and reached the scene of
the structure at 10:00 p.m. "When we
arrived on scene, there were flames
coming out of the roof of the mobile
home," Alexander reported.
The fire fighters were able to con-
trol the flames and keep the fire from
spreading, but the mobile home was
destroyed. The residence was re-
ported to belong to Ms. Tina,Lohe.
She was not at home at the time ,of
the fire.


Flooding thunderstorms leave


area underwater Thursday


afternoon
By John M. Ayers
The National Weather Service in
Jacksonville forecast that the eastern
and southern portions of Gilchrist
County would be impacted by severe
thunderstorms Thursday afternoon.
The severe weather began in the mid-
dle portion of the county and traveled
southeast as Trenton received be-
tween 4.5 and 5 inches of rain during
an estimated 1.5-hour storm.
Rain came down in barrels as the
Florida Department of Transporta-
tion's storm water retention area in
northwest Trenton filled to beyond
capacity within the first half an
hour. Flooding began in several of-
fices along SR 26 and Main Street in
downtown Trenton. Gilchrist County
Administrator Ron McQueen re-
ported the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office was contacted to slow traffic
on SR 26 East (within one block of
the signal light) as traffic was mak-


ing waves pushing the water into the
offices on the north side of the high-
way. The Sheriff's office explained
the City of Trenton was not in their
jurisdiction. On Main Street, by the
time law enforcement got an officer
to the intersection of NE First Av-
enue and Main St., the waves from
traffic traveling north were rolling up
to the office of State of Florida Juve-
nile Justice at 204 North Main.
The area around NE 10th St. was
flooded as rain came off SR 26 into
the low area at the intersection of
NE 10th Street. The new Gilchrist
County Veteran's Memorial Park just
1 block south of the courthouse was
flooded as three storm water retention
ponds were filled to beyond capacity.
Southeast First Avenue between the
courthouse and the new memorial
park appeared as a lake, even though
storm water drainage of the new park
is connected to the DOT storm reten-


tion area in northwest Trenton.
The Gilchrist County Extension
Office and the office of the Guard-
ian ad Litem of the Eighth Judicial
Circuit on East Wade St. (SR 26)
was flooded when high-speed traffic
turned the flooding water into waves
rolling up over the sidewalk and into
the front doors.
The rain, which lasted just under
two hours, slowed to a drizzle after
the first forty-five minutes. This was
a blessing as the water had an oppor-
tunity to recede somewhat before the
flood came again.
The Florida Department of Trans-
portation issued warnings to traffic
returning from Gainesville Thursday
afternoon to avoid the SR 26 and US
129 area due to flooding. With the
scattered thunderstorms dispersing
by 3:00 p.m., the streets and high-
ways were passable when the high
volume of traffic passed through
Trenton after 5:.00 p.m.


The FDOT storm water retention area in northwest Trenton was turned into a lake Thursday afternoon as
4.5 to 5 inches of rain flooded the small town within two hours. This retention area is located behind the
Suwannee River Kidney Dialysis Center in Trenton. Flooding in Trenton is not a new problem as several
downtown businesses have battled flood waters in the past. This retention area was built to take care of the
problem but with addition building in the downtown area such as the addition to the courthouse and new
parking areas, the retention area can not take care of a major downpour

the Fed funds interest rate. That last
item made history. The Fed, for the
first time ever, coordinated its interest
rate cut with rate cuts by central
banks around the globe, including the
People's Bank of China.
Unfortunately, economic stimuli
are subject to a lag factor. Therefore,
do not look for the actions of the
Fed and Treasury to begin to gain
real traction for several months.
At the same time, we can hope that
the November elections will usher
in a reconstitution of the fiduciary
responsibility and financial regulation
that has been abysmally absent from
Washington over the past eight.
years.
None of which negates the fact that
you still have to deal with the current
investment environment, especially
if you are in your retirement years
where you need to utilize your
portfolio to supplement your income.
Therefore, begin by adopting a stance
whereby you ignore the perturbations
roiling the financial markets and do
not let the decisions and reactions of
others drive your investment strategy.
Remember, paper losses that result
from market aberrations are generally
meaningless and short-lived.
Most quality companies are
continuing to do business as usual,
including retaining a status quo
with regard to their dividend policy.
Nonetheless, whenever there is a
disruption in the financial markets,
Wall Street can be depended on to

A good example is Varian Medical
Systems (VAR), a company I first
discussed here a year ago. Back then
the shares were trading at about $42.
They recently traded at $48.72, for
a gain of 16 percent, despite being
downgraded recently, resulting in a
price decline from a high of $64 this
past Sept.
Therefore, if you had purchased
the shares a year ago, you could now
sell-off 10 percent of your holdings
to use as disposable income, while at
the same time continuing to hold an
investment in Varian that is 6 percent
greater than your initial investment.
Furthermore, that increased
investment will generate additional
compounded growth as Varian's
earnings continue to increase.,
My earnings estimate a year
ago for the company's fiscal year
ending Sept. 29 was $2.05 per share.
Earnings will be announced on Oct.
23, and the lowest consensus estimate
is now $2.20 per share. The intrinsic


Surviving The Financial Crisis
(Kent Heaton)


A financial crisis occurs when the crisis of man's soul is
dependant upon the financial condition of his heart.
Samuel Johnson said, "The love of money has been in all
ages, one of the passions that have given great
disturbances to the tranquility of the world". (Rambler,
October 6, 1750). How remarkable man is as the only
creature that puts such worth and value upon printed
paper. An animal foraging through a wilderness will pay
no attention to shiny pieces of gold to search for food and
water; knowing that food and water give life, not gold or
silver.
Dee Bowman said recently that more people are upset
about their earthly treasure than they are about their
heavenly treasure. If people worried as much about their
souls as they do their money what a change would take
place in the world. Jesus plainly reminds us of the value of
both: "Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth,
where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in
and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves
do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there
your heart will be also (Matthew 6:19-21).
If the focus of our life is only upon the treasures of this
life then we are men most miserable. We can gain great
wealth one day and lose it the next day. There are no
guarantees when it comes to riches. The value of our
riches can only be measured by the fear we have of losing
them. Riches in heaven can not be taken away by man.
Our reward in heaven does not fade away and no one can
steal it away. Paul affirms, "I know whom I have believed,
and am persuaded that he is able to keep that which I
have committed unto him against that day" (2 Timothy


There is nothing within the arsenal of money that can
give you what God can give. The possession of riches is
not sinful, but securing our hearts to the temptation of
riches is what will bring about woe and misery. "But
godliness actually is a means of great gain when
accompanied by contentment. For we have brought
nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of
it either. If we have food and covering, with these we
shall be content. But those who want to get rich fall into
temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful
desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction. For
the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some
by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and
pierced themselves with many griefs" (1 Timothy 6:6-10).
How do we survive the financial crisis? Trust in God!
"Be ye free from the love of money; content with such
things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise
fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee"
(Hebrews 13:5). "The image of Caesar is money, the
image of God is man. Give money to Caesar, and give
thyself to God" (Tertullian, De Idol. 15, c.211 A.D.). Our
hopes and dreams should not be gauged by the flow of
Wall Street or our local bank. The sure deposit of our
hearts within the gates of God's house will bring about
security that is everlasting.
Life is not about riches and certainly in death riches
remain. The proverb says, "Shrouds have no pockets."
The man Job lost all his earthly wealth but retained his
godly wealth and died a richer man because of it. Where
our heart is will be where we find our treasure.

Letter to the
Editor
We just wanted to take time to say
thank you to our local 4-H contribu-
tors who took the time and effort to
decorate our courthouse yard again
this year. Every time we go by, it
brings a smile to our faces for two
reasons. One, their fall decorations
are just plain and uniquely charming
and funny. The second is that they
are all homemade and created by
our local youth. With our recent at-
mosphere of political and economic
doom and gloom, it is refreshing to
see that "our kids" still manage to
look on the bright side of life, work
together and remind us that a collec-
tive sense of humor is sometimes the
best prescription to endure any tough
times!

P.S.--Congrats to the Ayers and-
Mizell families on the birth of Allie.
Carrie's column is a welcome treat in
every paper, but last week's sharing
of the birth of their' daughter was the
best news yet. After so much sadness
and heartache in our community late-
ly, we were all delighted to share in
your joy and celebrate life with your
family and friends.

John and I were blessed beyond
belief on Wednesday evening, Octo-

After spending the past five days
with little Allie Claire, my heart has
been taken completely by little Al-

depth of this new love of my life. I

Maclay. Photo by Anna Wild, Freeze Frame Photography.


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Bulldogs spanked the
visiting Maclay Marauders Friday

in the first half at they scored 18 un-
answered points as they shutout the
visitors 18-0.
Bell's Justin Fowler got the game
off to a scoring start as he capped a
Bulldogs' drive with an 8-yard touch-
down run. Following a tough Bull-
dog defensive stand forcing Maclay


to 3 plays and punt, Bell was back on
offense. Justin Fowler again set the
Bulldogs up for another score as he
connected with Ryan Fisher on a 16-
yard strike for the score.
In the opening moments of the sec-
ond period, Fowler threw an arial to
Bubba Joiner that he pulled in and
dashed through the Maclay defense
for a 41-yard touchdown.
Lee Carlisle led the Bulldogs' of-
fense as he pounded the Maclay de-
fense for 112 yards 'on 19 carries.


William Joiner rushed for 71 yards on
17 attempts. Justin Fowler completed
8 of 19 attempts for 143 yards with
two touchdowns and 1 interception.
Garth Frier anchored Bell's shut'em
out defense as he had 6 total tackles
in this game. Lee Carlisle and Robby
Heck each contributed 5 tackles in
this game for the 4-1 Bulldogs.,
Bell will host Branford Friday
night with the kickoff getting under-
way at 7:30 p.m.


Bell Elementary thanks PetSmart
PetSmart located off Archer Road
in Gainesville has donated a 45-gal-
lon fish aquarium to Bell Elementary
School. This heartfelt donation has
come at a time when our community
has suffered several losses.
The smiles that they, helped bring
to the children's faces, the eagerness
S- they brought to the children to learn,
and the awe that they have given to
our staff is as they say, priceless.
The fish aquarium and the fish are
a magical addition to our library. Our
Bell family has been blessed by the
,. friendships we have made vith.Ty-
,, son, the manager, Rae Ann, the ani-
mal specialist, and PetSmart.
On behalf of all at Bell Elementary
and the Fish Committee, thank you!

Cadet Wood reciting "A Toast to
the Flag" by Charles Daily.

JROTC Constitution
presentation
The Constitution of the United
States of America is one of the many
great things about our country, which
is oftentimes, unfortunately thought
to be nothing more than a mediocre
document.
However, on September 17, the
Bell JROTC presented a program
about the Constitution for the middle
school students, which stressed the
purpose, history, and importance of
the Constitution of America.
The presentation involved a series
of video clips from the famous educa-
tional videos, School- House Rocks.
First Sergeant Meinholz acted as
the moderator and held several brief
question/answer periods, in which
he asked the middle school students
questions about our country and the
.Constitution.
First Sergeant Meinholz stated,
"The purpose for putting on this pre-
sentation was to educate young peo-
ple about the history of their country.
We did this using a 'non-traditional'
approach, which included some the-
atrical attributes, designed to ensure
that the students would not lose inter-
est or focus of the presentation."
Cadet Clint Wood showed the stu-
dents what the colors and the symbols
of the flag represented. He skillfully
kept his performance entertaining by
reciting the poem, 'A Toast to the
Flag,' written by Charles Daily.
We hope that this presentation
taught the middle school students
more about their country, for the his-
tory of the United States of America
is something that should never be
considered mediocre.

Wildfires can cause major environ-

habitat, homes; and even lives may
result from a devastating wildfire.
The wildfire that does not start is the
one that does not have to be fought.
Prevention is the key in helping to
reduce the number of human caused
fires- one of the most important goals
for the Division of Forestry. Even
though Florida is the lightning capi-

On November 4th the voters of Gilchrist County will be choosing a new Sheriff. The position
of Sheriff is multifaceted and requires many different skills to be successful. Just because
someone has 20 years on the job does not mean he has acquired the skills needed to be your
next Sheriff. You are not electing another road deputy, or even an investigator, you are electing
the person who must manage and administer the entire Sheriff's Office.
The next Sheriff must be elected based on real qualifications and experience in areas our Sher-
iff will deal with on a daily basis. The Sheriff must know the law. Because an arrest is made,
does not guarantee a case can be prosecuted in the court. Many cases are lost because of errors
and omissions by law enforcement. Your next Sheriff must have a thorough legal background
in order to prevent this from happening. I have been a State Certified Law Enforcement Officer
for 15 years, most recently Assistant State Attorey, Division Chief, for. Gilchrist County. I
have seen these problems occur, and know how to prevent them.
Your next Sheriff must also be able to manage 55 full time employees, and manage a budget
of more than 3 million dollars. Your next Sheriff must juggle all these difficult responsibilities.
while at the same time accomplishing the ultimate goal of serving and protecting the public.
When you cast your vote, don't.make your choice based on party affiliation or because a candi-
date is your friend. Make your choice and cast your vote because the candidate has the knowl-
edge, skills, and experience needed to be Sheriff.
I have a bachelor's degree in criminology, a doctorate degree in law, and numerous law
enforcement specific courses. I have handled thousands of criminal cases involving every type
of crime from start to finish, serving as a Deputy Sheriff, Investigator, and State Prosecutor. I
have supervised more than 70 employees at a time, and have managed budgets of more than 3
million dollars. I have also written and administered grants of more than 750 thousand dollars.
I have the best combination of education, experience, and abilities of any candidate running. If
elected, I will use my knowledge, skills, and talents to protect all of our citizens, combat drug
use, protect property, and make Gilchrist County a safe place to live.
I love Gilchrist County and I love law enforcement. Be sure you are casting your vote for the
right reasons and for the most qualified candidate who has the most to offer to Gilchrist County.

Heart Matters
Are you in a relationship with
someone that often results in frustra-
tion? Anger? Confusion? Feeling out.
of control? If you are nodding your
head to all of the above, realize that
these feelings are indicators of an
unhealthy element in your relation-
ship. These feelings are like an in-
ternal alarm system that serve to let
us know that things are not as they
should be...someone important to us
is affecting our life in a very negative
way.
In his book, Handling Difficult
People, author Dr. John Townsend
describes relationships as "the deliv-
ery system for so many of the good
things we need in life-love, safety,
grace, warmth, encouragement,
truth, forgiveness, and more. .These
elements make life meaningful, pur-
poseful, and enjoyable. But life with
a difficult person is none of those
things." Relationships with difficult
people can bring feelings of isolation
instead of connection, and can actu-
ally work to destroy the affection that
you once held. We can also begin to
believe that nothing we try will fix
the problem; this leaves us frustrat-
ed and we often resort to becoming
someone we don't want to be when
we are with our difficult person, so
what should we do?
Take a look at 1 Corinthians 13:4-
6, and read the Biblical definition of
love from a different perspective:
"Love is patient, love is kind. It
does not envy, it does not boast, it
is not proud. It is not rude, it is not
self-seeking, it is not easily angered,
it keeps no record of wrongs. Love
does not delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth., It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes, always
perseveres."
Love's nature is to stay with the
relationship as it develops, grows,
and matures. The fact that love is
patient and kind does not mean that
you minimize or deny hurtful behav-
ior...nor are we to become passive:
doing nothing to solve the problem
and simply praying and hoping that
God will fix our difficult person...we
are co-laborers with God, and He
often shows us things to do in ad-
dition to prayer (we just often don't
have the courage to follow through.)
Love is not proud, rude or self-seek-
ing, meaning that we aren't trying to
change someone so that they become
what we want, but that we long to see
growth so that they become who God
created them to be. The. "always"
of love indicates that love must be
protected to last...and often the best
way to accomplish this is,to confront
the harmful behavior of your diffi-
cult person and put consequences in
place, not to punish, but to motivate
change. If you continue to enable
your difficult person, you are not
helping them...on the contrary, you
are encouraging them to continue
down this destructive path.
Evaluate that difficult relationship
in you life, and put real proactive love
into practice. Ask God for wisdom
and instruction, and a dose of cour-
age to follow through. What you put
into practice today could bring great
results in your relationship tomor-
row. God wants your relationships to
bring good things into your life...be-
cause your heart matters!
Blessings,
Angie

Gilchrist County Woman's Club news


The latest Gilchrist Woman's
Club guest speaker, Dr. Dawn
Grinenko, made us all wake up
and take notice, as she showed
G.W.C. how much influence "our
kids" are. under by Big Tobacco,
at our latest club meeting on Oc-
tober 9th in Trenton. Gilchrist
County has one of the highest use
rates amongst teens, for tobacco
products (especially for smoke-
less tobacco), in the whole State
of Florida, and now women and
girls outnumber men and boys
for cigarette use. Even second-
hand smoke is dangerous, so "Dr.
Dawn" is an expert to enlighten
the community at large.
After having a 5" monsoon rain
earlier that day, we were blessed with
a great turnout for the latest Gilchrist
Woman's Club meeting, held on Oc-
tober 9th at the Woman's Clubhouse
in Trenton. One of the highlights


of the evening was an interesting
and informative talk and slide show
graciously presented by Dr. Dawn
Grinenko, who is both a practicing
internist and pediatrician. She is cur-
rently working with the State Depart-
ment of Health, and with our local
Quit Doc program, as part of Gilchrist
and Dixie County's Tobacco-Free
Partnership Program. You may reach
"Dr. Dawn" at (352) 316-2963, if you
would like to hear her message, and/
or receive additional literature on this
worth-while project.
A great big thank you to the
Gilchrist Woman's Club's Public-
ity Committee, who put together
the meeting with me: namely, Chris
Schreiber, Maxine Cummins, Diana
Harrison, Natalie Rankin, Patricia
Yates and Rachel Johnson, for con-
tributing their time, food and drinks,
utensils and dishes, decorations and
door prizes. Thank you too, to Don-
na Hayes and Cindy Slaughter, who
provided delicious soup and sand-
wiches to compliment our treats, and
to Jo Buckles, who provided an extra
door prize. And our welcome, to one
of Capital City Bank's finest people,
Denise Hudson, who joined our club
as a new member!
If you forgot your Halloween can-
dy, it's not too late to drop off your
bags at Ayers Nursing and Rehab
Center, or also to Troke Realty. Ay-
ers Rehabilitation Center has yearly
provided a safe and fun place, for
area young children to Trick-or-Treat
in Trenton, and donations are greatly
welcomed by all.

Our November meeting, to be
held on November 13th, has a sur-
prise (?) theme--per our next hostess,
Lynn Parkes-but we .ask .that you
start saving any extra canned goods
and packaged foods for then, to add
to the Thanksgiving baskets being
provided by the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Department. Last year they
gave out over 300 baskets to eligible
local families. Times are rough for
everyone, but any items that can be
contributed at that time in November
would be greatly appreciated, espe-
cially for those less fortunate than
others.
Thanks,

National School Bus
Safety Week, October
20-24
This year National School Bus
Safety Week is October 20 through
24, 2008, and the theme is "Stop on
Red! Kids Ahead."
School buses continue to be the saf-
est vehicles on the road to transport
students. Nevertheless, the danger
zones around school buses continue
to be of great concern for bus drivers
and other motorists.
The theme this year emphasizes
the need for motorists to stop when
a school bus has its flashing red
lights on and its stop arm extended.
These are the signals that indicate
that school children are boarding or
departing the bus, which are the most
critical times for the safety of chil-
dren.
Let's all do our part in keeping our
students safe.

YOU ARE INVITED


TO


October 19th


A


Gilchrist County will be celebrat-
ing our veterans with a Veteran's Day
Parade followed by a dedication of
the new Gilchrist County Veteran's
Memorial Park.
This is a time for everyone in our
great community to come out and
pay tribute and honor our cherished
citizens, our veterans. After all, our
veteran's contributions are many.
Many of our sons and daughters are
serving not only in Iraq and Afghani-
stan, but also in many other hostile
zones throughout the world. All of
our active duty veterans are serving
our country in support of the Global
War on Terrorism regardless of their
military job or location. American
veterans have invested great sacri-
fices for our country in order to pre-
serve our rights, culture and freedom
against enemies both foreign and
domestic. Many gave the ultimate
sacrifice, their lives. We all enjoy our
freedom and American way of life
because of their sacrifices.
All citizens are urged to come out
on November 11, 2008, and celebrate
Veteran's Day. The festivities will
kick-off with the Veteran's Day Pa-
rade starting at 10 a.m. near the track
at the Trenton High School area and
travel along CR 307A onto Main
Street ending at 3rd Ave near the city'
police department.
After the parade, everyone is invit-
ed to support and experience the ded-
ication of the new Veteran's Memo-
rial Park located directly across from
the south side of the courthouse. The
dedication ceremony will be from 11
to 11:30 a.m.
Finally, we hope that everyone will
gather down at the Trenton Railroad
Depot for hotdogs and hamburgers
