Jamie Pope has friends who care


Friendships are very special, and
important to Trenton High School
students and alumni. Last Saturday
past and present students of Trenton
High united to help out a friend who
is battling a serious health issue.
After a month long stay in the bone
marrow transplant' unit at Shands
Hospital, Trenton native Jamie Pope
is looking forward to hopefully com-
ing back to Trenton soon. Jamie said
on Monday, "I just want to be outside
again and see the sun; I haven't seen
the sunshine for a month." Jamie just
finished his second round of chemo-
therapy to treat Leukemia. If all goes
well and his immunities have built up
enough, he will be allowed to return
home to Trenton and spend a few
weeks to enjoy the sun in his home-
town. Jamie has been in the hospital
since his diagnosis in mid Septem-
ber. His sister Bianca was spending
the day at his bedside on Monday.
Family and friends have all rallied
for Jamie.
Jamie plans to return to the hospital
in November to receive a cord blood
transplant. A match of cord blood has
recently been located. He reports that
when he returns for the transplant he
will be in the hospital for about three
weeks. After that he will have to stay
very near the hospital, in Gainesville
for some 100 days. It is crucial that
he be located so near the hospital in
case of a life-threatening infection.
Jamie Pope has a reputation of be-
ing one of the nicest young people
around. He is respected by his former
teachers as is evident in the Letter to
Editor published on page three of this
newspaper. Cheri Langford, Assis-
tant Principal at Trenton High School
said, "He is very respectful and a all
around good person, he is loved by
everyone."
Last Saturday twenty or so young
people from Trenton High School
manned the corners at the traffic
light taking donations for Jamie.
Many were dressed in their Trenton
iuigh School football jerseys as they
held football helmets out to passing
motorists to receive donations. This


Jamie Pope


fund raising event was organized by
the students for Jamie who served as
an assistant football coach at THS
until he was diagnosed with Leuke-


mia. Travis Sessions who is a Senior
football player at THS said that the
students are trying to organize other
fund raisers in the near future for Ja-
mie. Travis said, "Jamie is a great
guy; Jamie not only coached this
year but he played for the Tigers last
season during his senior year." The
staff at Trenton Elementary School
recently held a chili dinner to raise
funds for him also.
Patricia Lindsey, Jamie's mother,
reported that Jamie has been running
a fever for the past several weeks and
is recovering from pneumonia at this
time. She hopes her son gets to come
home for a short stay goon. His moth-
er who runs a local day care said, "Ja-
mie believes and he is saved; that is
what people see in him; we know that
God is able."
Anyone wishing to send Jamie a
card may do so by mailing it to Jamie
Ponna PC Rox 496. Trenton. Florida


Jamie's friends raised over $1,000 on his behalf during the fund rais-
er last Saturday. -Back row from left to right, Michael Hamill, Kyler

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action on Monday during their
October 20 meeting to approve Reso-
lution 2008-78. This action set into
motion the changes in the scope of
the project of County Road 307 and
307A reducing the project to County
Road 307 from SR 26 to US 129.

mission in a previous meeting to

Trenton funded by the Department
of Transportation. The engineer ex-
plained to the board that the original
scope of the project that initially ad-
dressed the widening and resurfacing
of County Road 307 and 307A came
back too expensive to do together. He
recommended separating the proj-
ects and going forward with County
Road 307 and putting the secondary
portion (County Road 307A) on the
next year's priority list for the Florida
DOT.
The Resolution 2008-78 identified
authorizing Gilchrist County to enter
into a small county outreach program
of the Florida Department of Trans-
portation involving a supplementary
agreement to change the DOT proj-
ects. Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to approve the
supplemental agreement and reduce
the scope of the project to bring into
bid. This action also included Gil-
christ County reapplying for SCOP
funding for County Road 307A from
County Road 307. east to US 129
in Trenton. Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas agreed with a second to the
motion. Commission Vice Chair Sha-
ron Langford called for a vote and
the four-member board approved the
motion unanimously.
The board advised County Admin-
istrator Ron McQueen to contact Lee
Mills involving the board's action
and take the next step in contacting
the recognized contractor on this
project.

The Trenton High School Alumni
Reunion was held on Saturday, Oc-
tober 18, 2008. Approximately 175
Trenton High School Alumni at-
tended the one day multi-class re-
union. Memories of days gone by
were shared as old friends and class-
mates had a chance to renew friend-
ships. Those attending the event had
a chance to catch up on each others
families and careers.
The event was held at the Trenton
'Elementary School lunchroom.
The food was good and the social-
izing was even better. Everyone there
seemed to have a wonderful time.
We wish all the graduates in this area
would be committed to come.
Ernest Blitch and his wife came
from Charlotte, North Carolina; Mr.
Maxey Dell Love and his wife came
from South Carolina, and others were
there from Georgia.
The Class of 1958 celebrated their
50th class reunion, and the Class of
1959 celebrated their 49th class re-
union. The Class of 1968 had a great
attendance, and celebrated their 40th.
Plans for another reunion are un-
derway. The next multi-class reunion
will be held in the year 2010.
It was great to see everyone again;
and we appreciate all who came out
and participated. For all those who
did the work, "Hat's off to you!"

Ms. Carolyn Teague
by Geneva Cornwell
Obedience, "Cheerfully carry-
ing out the directions and wishes of
those who are responsible for me."
Obedience comes .from the Latin
words ob and audio and means
literally "to hear." Obedience con-
trasts with willfulness in that a will-
ful person doesn't listen. A willful
person follows after his or her own
will without regard for what the au-
thorities have to say.
Taking responsibility for one's
actions is a preliminary step in
character development. In will-
fully being obedient to the dictates
of one's conscience, a person will
obey authorities immediately; have
a cheerful attitude; complete all
that is expected with no complaint
and go the "extra mile." Obedience
is perhaps the most critical charac-
ter quality for anyone in leadership.
Before a leader can expect obedi-
ence from their subordinates, he or
she must maintain exemplary obe-
dience to those over them.
We have a citizen in our midst,
who exemplifies obedience in
the workplace. It is Ms. Carolyn
Teague. After retiring from the


Red Ribbon Week
Oct. 18th.26th
Re'dRibboni Week-is the oldestand
largest drug prevention program in


Seals Corporation, she began as
a Gilchrist Sheriff's volunteer. In
the year 2000, she was hired on as
the Civil Clerk. Ms. Teague pushes
lots of papers around in the Sher-
iff's Office and is responsible for
seeing to it that each paper gets to
the right person. As an expert with
the computer, Carolyn regards that
acting in obedience to what is ex-
pected of her gives others, lessons
in obedience, and with that obedi-
ence comes a cheerful attitude that
brings forth a good day at the of-
fice.
Ms. Teague believes that obey-
ing one's conscience (looking to
God for direction) is the key to do-
ing an excellent job, as well as get-
ting along with fellow employees.
She shared that even when others
have said hurting words, that obey-
ing one's conscience will not allow
the one hurt to speak evil of. the
other. This joyful lady believes that
it was her mother, Eris McManus-
Edwards, who instilled in her to
"Do unto others as you would.have
them do unto to you."
Carolyn Teague, widow, mother
of four, grandmother to five, and
great-grandmother to two, finds
great pleasure in her family. She at-
tends Mt. Pleasant Baptist Church
and finds great pleasure and fulfill-
ment in her hobby of genealogy.
She believes that giving a smile
and a "thank you" can make their
day and neither costs anything. Do-
ing both shows that one is obedient
to that ever-present authority, "the
conscience."
This author relates that it's such
an honor to have the opportunity
to spend time with such citizens
of moral character, and Carolyn
Teague proves that in matters of
good character we should all stand
like a rock. '

Rio Lindo Ranch
ranked fourth in
Angus Registrations
for Florida
during 2008
Rio Lindo Ranch in Trenton
ranked as fourth largest in registering
the most Angus beef cattle in Florida,
having recorded 109 head of Angus
with the American Angus Associa-
tion during fiscal year 2008, which
ended September 30, according to
Bryce Schumann, chief executive of-
ficer of the American Angus Associa-
tion.
Angus breeders across the nation
in 2008 registered 333,766 head of
Angus cattle. "Our year-end statis-
tics continue to demonstrate strong
demand and extensive market pen-
etration that Angus genetics enjoy,"
Schumann said. "These results un-
derscore our members' commitment
to providing genetic solutions to the
beef cattle industry."
The American Angus Association,
headquartered in Saint Joseph, Mis-
souri, was founded in 1883 and is
celebrating its 125th year. It is the
largest beef registry association in
the world in terms of both annual reg-
istrations and active members. For
more information about the Angus
breed go to www.angus.org.


Jon Gray Cattle
Company joins
membership of
American Angus
Association
Jon Gray Cattle Company, Bell,
Florida, is a new member of the
American' Angus Assbciation, re-
ports Bryce Schumann, chief ex-
ecutive officer of the national breed
registry organization in Saint Joseph,
Missouri.
The American Angus Association,
with more than 36,000 active adult
and junior members, is the largest
beef cattle registry Association in the
world. Its computerized records in-
clude detailed information on nearly
16 million registered Angus.
The Association records ancestral
information and keeps production
records on individual animals for its
members. These permanent records
help members select and mate the
best animals in their herds to produce
high quality, efficient breeding cattle
which are then recorded with the
American Angus Association. Most
of these registered Angus are used by
the U.S. farmers and ranchers who
raise high quality beef for U.S. con-
sumption.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


"When this old world starts a get-
ting me down...," (James Taylor,
1998).
I cannot testify as to the world, but
for many of you Wall Street is get-
ting you down. Do not despair, I have
an answer you might find extremely
useful in today's volatile investment
climate.
However, let me preface what fol-
lows with the following mantra...
stocks are and always have been the
best investment for increasing your
wealth. The only difficulty is deter-
mining what to buy and when. The
last point is easy, anytime and espe-
cially now when they are on sale.
So which companies do you invest
in? Suppose you had a list of 319 sol-
id high quality dividend paying com-
panies that have withstood the test of
time...would that help? Although I
have not discussed Mergent's Divi-
dend Achievers publication in over
three years, it is still, in my opinion,
the single most useful tool for indi-
vidual investors.
Dividend Achievers is published
quarterly by John Wiley & Sons and
profiles 319 companies that have in-
creased their regular annual cash div-
idend for a-minimum of 10 consecu-
tive years. However, the Dividend
Achievers list itself is only updated
once a year. To put things in perspec-
tive, only about three percent of all
listed, dividend paying companies
make the Dividend Achievers list.
Mergent is not content to simply
list the stellar dividend performers.
Rather it takes the list and proceeds
to slice and dice it in a variety of
ways. For example, it ranks the entire
list by total return based on 1, 3 and
5 year ending May 30, in the summer
2008 edition. Then it lists the top 20
companies in 12 different categories
such as total assets, return on assets,
return on equity and dividend yield.
You will also find the website ad-
dresses for the companies listed.
Yet, the various lists comprise
only 36 pages of a book that is 355
pages in length. The remaining pages
are devoted to a detailed description
of each company, 6 years of annual
financial data along with the most
current quarterly data and a chart of
stock prices covering a 10-year pe-
riod. There is one page per company.
No, I do not have a financial tie-in
with the book or with Mergent. How-
ever, as a matter of complete disclo-


There Is Only One
(Kent Heaton)

In the antique world, owning the only copy of an to the Father but through Me" (John 14:6). Jesus is the
ancient manuscript or possessing the only artifact from the only way to the Father; the only truth that comes from the


ancient world suggests great value. If there is only one
copy of a piece of music from Beethoven, scholars would
recognize its great worth. There is only one original
Constitution of the United States signed by the early
fathers. The value of one is evident. There is only one
God. There is only one Savior. There is only one book
containing the word of God. There is only one church.
There is only one way to salvation. There is only one
eternal rest.
The Bible is the only place the principle of one is
denied by those who accept it in every other part of life.
From the garden of Eden, God told man there was only
one way of truth. "The Lord God commanded the man,
saying, "From any tree of the garden you may eat freely;
but from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you
shall not eat, for in the day that you eat from it you will
surely die" (Genesis 2:16-17). Man chose to ignore that
law and was expelled from the garden. There was one
truth and because of their disobedience, Adam and Eve
were punished.
When Moses brought the Law to the people of God in
Exodus 20 the first commandment was "You shall have
no other gods before Me" (Exodus 20:3). The prophet
Isaiah declared the word of the Lord: "Turn to Me and be
saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there
is no other" (Isaiah 45:22). There is no other God but
Jehovah God. There is no Allah, no Buddha, no other God
but the one true God.
There is only one Savior. Jesus plainly taught the
oneness of His relationship with the Father in John 14:6 -
"I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes


Father; and the only life man can have is through Jesus
Christ. There is only one way man can find the Father and
that is in Christ. That leaves out Moses, Elijah, the Pope,
Mohammed, Joseph Smith, George Bush and Kent Heaton.
The Bible is the only book given to man that reveals the
mind of God. Paul said, "All Scripture is inspired by God
and profitable for teaching, for reproof for correction,
for training in righteousness; so that the man of God
may be adequate, equipped for every good work" (2
Timothy 3:16-17). There is no other revelation from God
(2 Peter 1:13-21). Paul warned that angels were not
permitted to change the word of God (Galatians 1:8,9) This
leaves out the Koran, the Book of Mormon or disciplines
written by man as inspired revelations from God.
There is only one church. Ephesians 4:4 says there is
"one body" and Ephesians 1:22,23 says the body is the
church. There is only one New Testament church. Jesus
said He would build "My church" and He died for only
one church (Matthew 16:18; Acts 20:28). There is only one
church that is nearly 2,000 years old and the churches of
men cannot make that claim.
There is only one way to salvation. The book ofActs is
filled with stories of those who obeyed from the heart that
form of doctrine that delivered them from sin. Upon
hearing the word of God they believed it and confessed
Christ as their Savior; repenting of their sins and having
their sins washed away in the waters of baptism became
children of God (Mark 16:15,16; Acts 2:38; Romans
10:9,10; Luke 13:3; Romans 6:3-6).
There is only one place of eternal rest Heaven
(Revelation 21 & 22).

(,:.a


sure, in the past I have received such
items as a coffee mug, tee shirt and
chocolate business cards that came
with my complimentary publisher's
review copy.
In a more serious vein, I have been
using and writing about the Dividend
Achievers publication for over seven-
teen years and I believe it to be one of
the few true bargains in the arena of
independent investment research. If
you took away my access to the Inter-
net, my telephone and only allowed
me the use of one printed book for se-
lecting companies in which to invest,
this book would be my choice.
For example, if you are interested
in knowing which company has the
longest record for increasing its divi-
dend every year as of Dec. 31, 2007,
it is a three way tie. American States
Water, Diebold and Procter & Gam-
ble have been increasing their divi-
dends for 54 consecutive years. And
you say you cannot figure out what
to invest in.
So what do I not like about the
book? Mergent has become very
commercial with what used to be a
relatively inexpensive investment
tool, including licensing the Divi-
dend Achievers name to several mu-
tual funds. The beauty of the book is
that you do not need assistance, or
a mutual fund, to benefit from what
Mergent has put together.
Wiley is selling the book both as a
one year subscription for $199 or as
a single copy for $50 plus shipping.
For more information contact Wiley
at 1-888-378-2537. You might also
want to mention where you learned
about the book. The information is
helpful to Wiley and besides, I am all
out of chocolate business cards.

By Cindy
It seems that Christmas will be
here in no time and with these crazy
economic times we are all afraid to
run out and spend a bunch of money.
Not spending money only makes our
economy worse than it is already.
I have been giving Christmas gift
buying some serious thought, and
this year I have decided to buy as
many American-made gifts as pos-
sible. American-made has become a
'little hard to find lately, so I have. tak-
en the liberty of passing on my favor-
ite source just in case you too decide
to keep your Christmas dollars right
here in the good old USA.
My all time favorite catalog is the
Lehman's Non-Electric catalog. This
company is located in the OhioAmish
area,, and they are happy to ship any-
where. You can call 1 877-438-5346
(toll free) to order a catalog. The
larger catalog is $3.00, and they also
have a smaller seasonal catalog that
is free. It is worth the $3.00 just to sit
down and thumb through this cata-
log. They have everything from oil
lamps to old time farm dinner bells
to slinkies.
Every item in the catalog lists
where it is made. I love their selec-
tion of old fashioned toys such as
wagons, tricycles, checkers, chess,
croquet set, Monopoly and even
Farm-Opoly, all made in the USA.
Our son J. has picked out an ax, and
there is an Amish made garden hoe
that will be just right for John. They
also stock a large selection of inter-
esting ag books such as a book about
raising chickens. If you are a user of
the internet, check out their site at
Lehmans.com.
If you wish to help the local econ-
omy, you might choose to shop here
at home in Gilchrist County. Trenton
has a wonderful stained glass shop
where handmade items are sold. They
even do custom stained glass work at
Suwannee Valley Stained Glass. Best
Drugs, our local drug store, has a
large selection of gift items also.
During the Bell Christmas celebra-
tion the first Saturday in December


Jo Ayers
the Bell Woodturners usually have
a wonderful selection of local made
wood items for sale. Trenton mer-
chants and the Chamber of Com-
merce are planning a special evening
of shopping downtown Trenton on
Friday, December 5. There are many
local opportunities to shop at home.
You just have to think outside of the
Mall. What about a gift certificate
from an area restaurant?

J. Recently came in with a bushel
of sweet potatoes that he purchased
from a man who sells them each year
on Highway 19 near Chiefland. He
sells Georgia grown sweet potatoes
and they are really good. I also no-
ticed that Ryan has some nice ones
down at the local Hitchcock's store.
Last week I baked the following
Sweet Potato Biscuits. Carrie and
Lyndsay just happened to be at the
house, and they were called on to
once again be the taste testers. They
both really liked them. If you have
left over baked sweet potatoes, this is
a great way to use them.

1 cup baked sweet potatoes, that
have been mashed (be sure to
bake them until they are really
soft)
2/3 cup whole milk
4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) butter,
unsalted if you have it.
1 1/4 cups unbleached all-pur-
pose flour
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Grease a baking sheet and set aside.
In a medium bowl, mix the sweet po-
tato, milk and butter. Sift together the
flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.
Add to the potato mixture. Gently
mix the dry ingredients into the sweet
potato mixture to form a soft dough.
Don't over mix, drop the dough by
the rounded tablespoonsful onto the
prepared baking sheet. Bake about
15 minutes until goldenibrown. Serve
hot.

My heartfelt thanks go out to
the sweet, red-haired lady who
stopped to help me rescue a starv-

day afternoon on CR 232, near SW
70" Avenue in Bell.
I saw that the dog was wander-
ing dangerously close to the center
of 232; and I stopped my car and
tried coaxing her over to me. She
was obviously terrified and was
emaciated; every bone in her body
was visible. I doubt this poor dog
had ever known love in her young
life.
I had her almost to my car when
a speeding moron roared past us
going at least 90 mph, passing an-
other car over a solid line and al-
most hitting us; he never slowed
down.

ries is Dinosaurs Before Dark. Where
:did the tree house come from? Before
Jack and Annie can find out, the mys-
terious tree house whisks them back
to the prehistoric past. Now they
have to figure out how to get home.
Can they do it before dark, or will
they become a dinosaur's dinner? We
have thirty-one books in this exciting
series.
Book #1 of a series written by Ger-
trude Chandler Warner is The Boxcar
Children about orphans Henry, Jes-
sie, Violet and Benny. Determined

profession to "help people with the
problems in their lives." Immedi-
ately upon setting up shop in a small
storefront in Gaborone, she is hired
to track down a missing husband, un-
cover a con man, and follow a way-
ward daughter. But the case that tugs
at her heart, and lands her in danger,
is that of a missing eleven-year-old
boy, who may have been snatched by
witch doctors.

TAX COLLECTOr -



Your Tax Collector's office has maintained

operation with the same number of staff for the

past ten (10) years. Having five (5) skilled

employees available for customer service and

along with our growing county, it is imperative

that your Tax Collector be a "working employee
as well as a Tax Collector."


Technology is changing at a rapid pace and by

having the extensive background and

understanding of the Tax Collector's office it has
given me the skills, ability and knowledge

necessary to continue to lead the office forward,
while maintaining the quality of efficient, fast,

courteous and friendly service you deserve and

have come to expect from my office.

I appreciate the support that you have shown

me in past, and I am once again asking for your

vote on November 4th. "THANK YOU."

and violations such as worn/unsafe

rected to violations of driver license
laws, motor vehicle registration laws,
non-use of seatbelts and motor ve-

The Floritla Highway Patrol has
found these checkpoints to be an ef-
fective method of enforcing state
laws, which relate to the safe and le-

a fun way to meet new friends and try
new things. Josh is using what he is
learning now in 4-H to help him pre-
pare for his chosen vocations when
he grows up. Josh says he wants to
be a preacher and a paleontologist

One question that has come up often during my campaign is why I chose to run with No
Party Affiliation (NPA). The answer is very simple; I have chosen to run as a candidate
with no party affiliation because I have such a high respect for the Office of the Sheriff
and the important role this office plays in our community.
1 have not changed parties to run for-Sheriff. I am still a registered Republican as I have
been since 1 was 18 years old. I made the decision to run with no party affiliation to dem-
onstrate that regardless of someone's personal views or beliefs the function of the Sheriff
is to enforce the laws set forth by the State of Florida and the United States. The enforce-
ment of these laws should be done without prejudice, preference, or predisposition for
any outcome. For the same reasons judges are prohibited by state law from running on
any party platform (to assure a fair, neutral, and impartial judiciary) you should know
that your Sheriff is objective and guided solely by the law, not politics or special inter-
ests.
When you cast your vote don't make your choice based on party affiliation or any
reason other than who is most qualified to be the Sheriff. Make your choice and cast your
vote because the candidate has the education, skills, and experience needed to be your
next Sheriff.
Thank you for your consideration and support,
Robert E. Willis

Bell defeats Branford 20-19 with :24 left
in the qame


By John M. Ayers
The Bell Bulldogs and Branford
Bucs put it on the line Friday night
as they played a classic rock-em
sock'em high school football shoot-
out before a large crowd of fans in
Bell's Bone-yard. The Bucs ran wild
in the first half and held a 19-point
lead at intermission. Bell put their
aerial assault into action in the final
two quarters to cut the Bucs lead to
19-18. With :24 left in the game, the
Bulldogs went for the win on a two-
point conversion pass and earned the
victory 20-19.
Branford took control of the game
in the first quarter as they used their
ground grinding offense as Perry
scored on a 51-yard run with 8:37 left
in the first period. Certain kicked an
extra point attempt as the Bucs took
a 7-0 lead. Branford kept things roll-
ing into the second period as Clark
capped a drive with a 1-yard run
with 7:18 remaining in the first half.


The Bucs went to the air in the clos-
ingminutes of the second period as
Clark connected with Perry on a 45-
yard pass for a touchdown. The Bucs
held a 19-0 lead at halftime.
The Bulldogs got fired-up in the
third quarter as Justin Fowler con-
nected with Ryan Fisher on a 23-
yard pass for a touchdown. Bell's
Lee Carlisle charged through the
Bucs defense on a 3-yard run for a
touchdown with 9:59 remaining in
the game. The score put the hosts
to within a touchdown of the Bucs
as the two teams were battling it out
on the line of scrimmage. With the
Bulldogs driving down the field put-
ting the Bell fans on the edge of their
seats and standing on the fences, Jus-
tin Fowler found Ryan Fisher alone
in the Bucs' defense as they put the
Bulldogs to within a point of tying
the game with a 15-yard touchdown
pass. The Bulldogs did not intend to
tie the game with an extra-point kick.

Fowler brought the Bulldogs to the
line choosing to go for the win. The
quarterback threw to Lee Carlisle
as he was standing in the end zone.
The reception gave Bell the lead. The
Bulldogs kicked to the Bucs alid on
the second play from scrimmage; a
Bell defender intercepted the football,
and sealed the victory for the Bull-
dogs.
The Bulldogs offense in this win
was setup by Justin Fowler's com-
pleting 14 of 27 passes for 233 yard
and 1 interception. Ryan Fisher was
Fowler's favorite target in this game
as he pulled in 6 receptions for 124
yards and 2 touchdowns. William
Joiner rushed for 39 yards on 8 car-
ries.
Bell's defense kept the Buc's of-
fense in-check in the second half as
Robby Heck had 18 total tackles and
Garth Frier had 13 tackles for the
Bulldogs. The win gives the Bull-
dogs a 5-1 season record as they host
St. Joseph Academy of St. Augustine

derway at 7:30 p.m.


Trenton JV outscores
Havo to remain
undefeated
by Todd Bryant
The Trenton Junior Varsity football
team traveled to Mayo on October
9th to play the Hornets. Mayo had
beaten Trenton last year in overtime
and had only one prior loss this year.
Trenton received the opening kick
off and marched down the' field.
Brandon Stone ran a pitch sweep in
from 20 yards to go ahead of Mayo
6-0. Mayo received the kick off and
after a long drive went ahead of Tren-
ton 8-6. Trenton began another drive
and moved to mid-field when Stone
was upended by a Mayo defender
and took a nasty spill. Stone lay on
the Mayo sideline and was obvious-
ly injured. After a 20-minute delay
the ambulance arrived to take Stone
to Shands Hospital in Live Oak. To
the relief of all the fans and players,
Stone was diagnosed with strained
neck ligaments and a concussion and
was released.
With Stone out of the game, Ced-
ric Stokes had the tailback running
duties; and he ran very well for the
Tigers. Stokes had two touchdowns
from the tailback position, and Breon
Sims had one from the fullback posi-
tion. Trenton's offensive line did a
good job blocking an extremely big
and experienced Mayo defensive
front.
Trenton quarterback Jonathan
Smith hooked up with Corbin Wig-
gins on three timely catches. Wig-
gins was able to get loose from his
tight end position and got three im-
portant first downs, including one at
the end of the first half to help set up
another Tiger score.
Malik McGee had a great defen-
sive play when he picked up a Mayo
fumble out in the flat and ran it in for
a score as Mayo players were hang-
ing onto him.
Each time Mayo scored in the
second half they would try an ensu-
ing onside kick. Trenton. was able

Twenty of the Springhouse Quilters
completed their round robin and
brought them to show at the meeting
last Tuesday. The robin quilt tops
were all hung out around Spring-
house for a full viewing. They were
all very beautiful. The participating
members were all very pleased with
the round robin project. The owner
of the center block of the robin got
her original center block back with
extra borders having been added to
create unusual quilt tops. Now it


is time for the owners to sandwich
these tops and finish the.quilting. The
complete round robin project may be
viewed on the Springhouse web page
at www.springhousequilters.org.
SIn addition to the round robin proj-
ects there were plenty of completed
quilt projects for show and tell. Even
though it was not a newly created
quilt, Joyce Snoddy showed an early
1930s quilt top she recently received
from a family member. This top is

GREETINGS FROM CAMP TAJI, IRAQ!


Tir)C


Hello Citizens of Gilchrist County,

I am Army SSG Sherri Slaughter, the proud daughter of Daniel Slaughter, candidate for Gilchrist County Sheriff. As a proud soldier in the United States Army, I am currently serv-
ing my third tour in Iraq and I am anxiously counting the days until my return to the USA in mid November! Because of current location my father has been keeping me informed
about his campaign through constant email. Wanting to help with his campaign, I asked my father if there was anything I could possibly do to help with the campaign from so far
away. We have decided that my voice can be best served through a reminder and encouragement to get out and vote!

As you may know, my father is a proud United States Vietnam Veteran. Having served in the US Army for the past 18 years in such locations as Iraq, Bosnia and Kosovo, I, like
him, have a strong respect for the right and process of voting. Similar to many homes around our country and Gilchrist County, when you currently have, or have had a loved one
serving in the military...or yourself have served...your sense of patriotism is greatly heightened. We are reminded how lucky we are to live freely...and how not everyone shares
the same fortunes we sometimes take for granted.

My father knows what it means to serve the people, and his desire is to serve as your next Sheriff. Utilizing his many years of law enforcement experience, his goal is to protect
our county, its values, interests and its rural way of life. He has stated to me that your safety and security will be his number one mission when elected Gilchrist County Sheriff. I
Sjoin with my family in asking for your support as the election draws near.

So, my message is simple, please get out and vote on November 4th...We all have a right and responsibility to cast our vote for the individual of our own choosing. The democratic
process allows us to continue to be the land of the free, and we should be honored to live in a country where such freedoms are established. I thank you for the emails, letters of
support and prayers, and ask that you continue to support and pray for all troops defending America's freedoms.

Thank you for supporting my father and for supporting the troops...Please support your rights by getting out and voting on November 4, 2008!


Sincerely,

SS GSherri Slaughter

Home of the Free...Because of the Brave
Political Advertisement Paid and Approved by Daniel Slaughter, Republican, for Sheriff, Gilchrist County

Purple Powerhouse Band nHews
pate in the UF Homecoming Parade
during the day and return home to
host our band alumni at Friday night's
game. We look forward to visiting


On October 18 the Purple Power-
house Band visited Union County
High School for the Florida Band-
master's District IV Marching As-
sessment. The fifteen bands from
seven counties performed an array
of music such as Transformers, the
Beatles, Stevie Wonder, music of
the Sixties and Seventies, Broadway
shows, Romeo and Juliet and Andrew
Copeland.
The Powerhouse Band's hard work
paid off this week with four Superior
ratings and two Excellent ratings.
The band received Superior ratings


in Marching and Maneuvering, Gen-
eral Effect, Flags and Percussion. We
wish to thank all the families, former
band members and community who
came out to support us. We appreci-
ate it.
On Friday night, the band hosted
the seventh graders when they played
in the stands with the band. Listening
to these seventh graders was a treat;
we have some very dedicated and
talented musicians moving up for the
2009 Marching season.
This Friday the band will partici-


with our alumni.
The band has lots of fundraisers
coming up, so boosters get ready for
a busy fall and winter season. Bas-
ketball concession season is near, so
parents get ready to sign up. Future
fundraisers include Mary Kay and
Pampered Chef. We will be having
Gator/Seminole spirit dances for the
middle and high school on November
21. On Saturday, November 29, the
band boosters will provide a Holiday
Drop and Shop for parents of 5-year-
olds through middle school. This will
allow parents to Christmas shop for
their'families during the Thanksgiv-
ing weekend sales. The kids will be
provided a double feature movie,
games, food and supervision in a safe
environment. More details to follow.
We are blessed as an organization
with so many great parents and we
would like to take this opportunity to
thank the Gray and Mikell families
for feeding our band on Homecom-
ing night and thank Juanda Myers
and Joy Railey for feeding our band
this past Friday night. Your efforts
are greatly appreciated.
Alumni, see you Friday night at the
Boneyard!

4 Pets Sake news
Are you ready for the pet parade,
photos, prizes, and raffles? Don't for-
get on Sunday, October 26, from 2 to
4 p.m., to make plans to be at the lot
behind Newberry Animal Hospital.
Entry fee is one bag or two cans of
dog or cat food. All entry fees will be
donated to 4 Pets Sake and the Stray
Animals Fund.
Now that the weather is cooler,.this
is a terrific time for a walk with your
fuzzy family member. Some canines
get a little chunky, so with a fresh pan
of water, a fenced in yard and a little
playtime, it can be fun and good ex-
ercise for all the family.
If you can't spend playtime with
your cat(s) because of a busy sched-
ule, there is a simple game they can
play when they are not sleeping 14

Kyle Stone of the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce and Teresa
Gentry of Best Drugs in Trenton at-
tended the Monday, October 20,
Trenton City Commission meeting to
request help for an up coming event.
The ladies explained the Christmas
on Main Street concept to the city
commissioners and requested Com-
munity Redevelopment funds to help
with promotion and banners.
This event is planned for Friday,
December 5, 2008 from 6 p.m. to 9
p.m. They plan to invite local busi-
nesses and merchants to stay open
late and decorate their building on
the inside and out for the holiday sea-
son.
It was also suggested that busi-
nesses might serve hot apple cider
and cookies. They are also planning
to have music at the Trenton Depot
which would include local choral
groups. The local churches will pres-


ent a live Nativity, and carolers will
be walking along the street.
They are also considering horse
drawn carriage rides down a back
street. The ladies believe this event
would help the local economy as
it would entice visits to downtown
Trenton and also promote goodwill
during the holiday season.
The Trenton City Commission-
ers voted to waive the fee to use the
Trenton Depot, and they pledged up
to $2,000.00 in Downtown Commu-
nity Development Funds for adver-
tising and promotion of this event.
They also plan to order banners to
hang from the light poles in on main
street.
The Journal will print other articles
leading up to the event with more de-
tailed information as plans are final-
ized. It should be a fun evening for
the entire family.

Area women raise money for March of


Dimes Mission Possi
Local women are working hard
to raise money to fight birth defects,
premature birth and infant mortality.
Through Mission Possible XVI these
women are leading the way to sup-
port the March of Dimes' effort to
save babies.
Mission Possible is a March of
Dimes fundraising event led by fe-
male business and community leaders
in Dixie, Gilchrist, and Levy Coun-
ties. Each woman aims to accomplish
the Mission Possible assignment of
raising $500 each to eradicate birth
defects and infant mortality.
Carol Jones, chair of the Tri-Coun-
ty March of Dimes Board, has spe-
cial ties to the March of Dimes. Jones
became involved with the March of
Dimes during her time at Chiefland
High School. She became passionate
about the March of Dimes because
her niece was born three months pre-
mature. "Taylor, my niece, weighed
2 pounds, 11 ounces and stayed at the
Shands Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
from April 14 until June 7," Jones
said.
Jones said that "the most reward-
ing thing about being involved in
Mission Possible is knowing that the
funds raised in the Tri-County area
help support community programs
through grants." These grants fund
programs such as pre-natal health
care classes and smoking cessation
classes through local health care
agencies.
The March of Dimes also funds
the NICU Family Support at Shands.
This site provides information and
comfort to families of premature
babies while they are in the neona-
tal intensive care nursery at Shands.
"When my niece was born, there was
no support for the families of babies
in the NICU unit. Now, with NICU
Family Support there is so much as-
sistance, guidance and information
for the families," Jones said.
For the 16th annual Mission Pos-
sible campaign, money will be raised
through beanie sales, mission cut out
sales, school challenges, letter writ-
ing campaigns, a motorcycle ride, a
community dance and much more..
The Mission Possible planning com-
mittee plans to raise at least $40,000.
The March of Dimes is inviting in-
dividuals and groups to join Mission
Possible to help celebrate the births
of all babies, whether they are born
healthy or need our help to survive


and thrive. The number of babies
born prematurely reached a record
high of 557,000 in 2006. The rate of
premature births has drastically risen
33 percent since 1981 nationwide.
The Tri-County area is also affected
by premature births.
In 2006, of 488 babies, 56 were
born prematurely in Levy County;
24 of 180 babies in Gilchrist County;
and 29 of 184 babies in Dixie Coun-
ty. Between 4 to 5.4 percent of wom-
en received late or no prenatal care in
these counties .
Almost everyone is affected by
premature births, according to Carin
Floyd, a member of the Tri-County
March of Dimes Board. "I had a pre-
mature son in 1996 that passed away
at 2-hours-old. This was after I had
a perfectly healthy son in 1995 and
have since had my daughter in 2000,
again wonderfully healthy. March of'
Dimes isn't just for the young moms
or just the ones that drink or smoke.
It is for anyone who is pregnant or
plans to become pregnant. Even
those of us who try to do everything
perfectly can be affected."
The March of Dimes is the leading
nonprofit organization for pregnancy
and baby health. With chapters na-
tionwide and area events like Mission
Possible, the March of Dimes works
to improve the health of babies.
If you know someone who has
had a premature baby and would
like to help, or if you are interested
in joining Mission Possible, contact
the March of Dimes North Central
Florida Division at (352) 378-9522
or Carol Jones at (352) 463-6653.
