Area Hitchcock's Stores sell



to Minnesota Company


Alan Hitchcock, owner of Hitch-
cock's grocery stores, reported on
Monday that Hitchcock's grocery
stores have been sold to Haug En-
terprises out of Minnesota. The sell
should be completed within the next
couple of weeks if everything goes
according to plan.
Hitchcock's has stores located in
Trenton, Old Town, Alachua, Wil-
liston, Hawthorne, Astor, Jasper,
Keystone Heights, Interlachen and
East Palatka.
Hitchcock said that the business
had grown a great deal in the last
few years and the stores were tak-
ing in over 100 million dollars in
sales annually. He also said that the


new buyers did not plan to change the
name of the stores. He went on to say
the new owners like what the Hitch-
cock name has meant in the commu-
nities where the stores- are located.
Haug Enterprises also plans to con-
tinue to grow the stores as this area
of Florida grows. He stated that the
plans for building a new store in Old
Town will get underway in the next
six to eight weeks.
Hitchcock went on to ;a% thart he
has retained ownership of all the
buildings and he plans to go into the
property management business. He
will be overseeing the care of the up-
keep of the buildings and overseeing
the building of future stores for the


Haug company in this area.
Customers should not expect to see
changes in the personnel at the stores,
as all the Hitchcock employees will
retain their same jobs with current
salary and retirement still in place.
Robert Harrison, a valued 22-year
employee, will continue on oversee-
ing the day-to-day operations of the
stores.
Hitchcock said that he didn't plan to
sell the stores, but he was approached
by this group and once he learned
more about their offer and that they
were willing to keep all the current
employees the deal just seemed right.
Hitchcock said, "This deal was just
too good to pass up. I kept asking

The Bell community memorialized
one of their own on Tuesday, October
21 as fellow students, friends, family
members and loved ones attended a
Life Quest Dedication service for
Kyle Ford on the Bell High School
campus. The memorial service gave
those people that knew this outstand-
ing young man an opportunity to rec-
ognize him and remember his life and
what he wanted for others. The dedi-
cation service involved the planting
of a Live Oak tree in the front yard of
the historic Bell High School build-
ing as well as challenges some teach-
ers made to Kyle's friends in making
the right choices in their own lives.
The Ford family explained that
October 21 would have been Kyle's
16th birthday. Kyle was seriously in-
jured in a tragic vehicle accident on
August 19, 2008, as he was riding
his bicycle on CR 340 near his home.
A vehicle passing him struck his bi-
cycle. The Bell High School student
had his wish of being an organ donor


ulinllea, as ne was able to give me
gift of life to others to extend their
lives.
Heather Markuson, Organ Pro-
curement Coordinator for Life Quest,
told the many people attending the
service a few things that made this
young man so special. "I get called to
the hospitals when someone has had
a severe injury to their brain, whether
it is from an accident, they started
bleeding into their brain or from a
lack of oxygen. I evaluate to see if
they could potentially be an organ
donor. That is exactly what happened
on August 21 when I got called about
Kyle from the staff of the PICU. Kyle
had such a bad injury to his brain
from the accident that he progressed
to brain death. Brain death is hard to
understand because even though their
heart is still beating, the brain has died
and they have actually passed away.
This is usually one of the most stress-
ful times in someone's life because
they are dealing with the loss of their
loved one and I can only imagine


myself 'what would my father do,'
and came up with the same answer,
he would sell." He went on to explain
the stores had grown to the point that
he had very little time to spend with
his family. He has been spending
more and more time in the main of-
fice in Alachua, trying to keep all the
stores running smoothly.
The late Bob Hitchcock joined his
father Robert in operating the Alachua
store in 1945. Bob's son Alan joined
the company after he completed col-
lege. Since that time the Hitchcocks'
have purchased other small stores in
this part of Florida and the company
has grown until they have over 825
employees at 11 stores.
Hitchcock said that his mother
Betty has been a vital part of the
store's customer service department.
For over 40 years Mrs. Betty went to
work everyday greeting customers as
they arrived in the store. Alan and
his sister Kathy Hitchcock Weaver
worked in the store while growing
up in Alachua. The-entire Bob Hitch-
cock family could be found working
at the store stocking shelves and do-
ing whatever needed to be done back
in those days.
During the summers, Alan's son
Jake has continued the tradition of
working in the grocery stores. Jake
has future plans of joining his father
in the property management business
after he completes college.
Hitchcock hopes to have more time
to spend with his family, do more
work with several charity groups,
and have time to be more involved
with his church.


The Trenton

Church of

Christ is

broken into for

the second time

In the early hours of Friday, Oc-
tober 24, unknown persons gained
entrance to the Trenton Church of
Christ located at 502 NE 7th Street,
Trenton.
Finding the office door secured,
the individuals broke a glass panel in
the door and unlocked the door. The
sound room is located in the office,
and the thieves ransacked the sound
room, taking nearly $2000 worth of
equipment before leaving through
the north door of the building.
Late Friday afternoon a Bible
class teacher found the break-in and.
reported to 911. It took the Tren-
ton City Police one hour and fifteen
minutes to respond; as the patrol car
was in the' shop and the officer had
no way to respond to the call. During
the hour and fifteen minutes, no law
enforcement officer came.
Before the officer could work the
crime scene, he had to return to the
Police Department to secure the
proper tools to process the crime. A
few fingerprints were taken but no
other action was pursued.
The church was broken into some
weeks ago in the early morning hours,
but nothing was taken but an antique
padlock. The church is presently hav-
ing a security system installed to dis-
courage future break-ins.
If anyone has information regard-
ing this break-in, please contact the
Trenton Church of Christ at 463-
3793.

how hard it is at that time to be able
to think of someone else when your
whole world is crumbling." Marku-
son explained, even though Kyle's
brain had died the rest of his organs
seemed at that time to be working
great. I will never forget how, even in
their own time of grief, willingly, Mr.
and Mrs. Ford were to honor Kyle's
wishes to be an organ donor and help
as many people as they could through

newly built Memorial Courtyard directly across the street.

Monuments move to new

Memorial Courtyard


Last Friday. October 24, was mov-
ing day for the five large monuments
located on the Gilchrist County
Courthouse lawn. The monuments
were carefully relocated to the new
Memorial Courtyard which is across
the road from the Gilchrist County
Courthouse and directly behind the
old Church of Christ that serves as
the County Commission Meeting
Room.
Meyers-Sterner Industries located
in Alachua provided the crane service
and the men to move the monuments
to their new location.
The Memorial Courtyard opening
ceremony will be held on November
llth directly following the veterans
parade.
The Veterans Day parade will be
held on November 11. The parade
will travel down main street in Tren-
ton at 10 a.m. The lineup will begin


at 9 a.m. at the oval track on 307A
near the gym at Trenton High Schfiool.
See page two of this week's Journal
for additional information about Vet-
erans Day Parade
Julee Brideson reported that any-
one still wanting to purchase a brick
for a military member or just a loved
one they want to honor may do so
by contacting the Gilchrist County
Administrator's Office at 352-463-
3198.
The committee in charge of the
Memorial Courtyard project would
also like businesses or individuals to
know that they are looking for spon-
sors of granite benches to be located
near the monuments. A bench spon-
sorship is $1,200.00, and the sponsor
can pick which branch of the military
to put on the bench. Also some 50
characters are available for that indi-
vidual or business to advertise on the
face of the bench.

Gilchrist County will be celebrat-
ing our veterans with a Veterans
Day Parade followed by a dedica-
tion of the new Gilchrist County
Veterans 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
veterans' contributions are many.
Many of our sons and daughters
are serving not only in Iraq and


Afghanistan, 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 regard-
less of their military job or location.
American veterans have invested
great sacrifices for our country in
order to preserve 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 cel-
ebrate Veterans Day. The festivities
will kick-off with the Veterans Day
Parade 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 Veterans' 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
sponsored by the Gilchrist Historical
Society. The Philman Family Band
will be providing live music while we
fellowship with one another. This will
start at noon and last until 2 p.m.
Remember to thank a veteran for
their service with a hearty smile and
handshake.

Letters to the Editor


Letter to the Editor
Dear John,
This is a limited response to "Let-
ters to the Editor" that were printed
in the Journal on July 24 and Au-
gust 7, 2008, that commented on our
school system. Over the course of.
my 22 years in public office I have
always avoided becoming embroiled
in controversies of this type because
normally the writers have personal
grievances to air. However, with the
encouragement of many of my staff
and supportive constituents, I have
decided to address several of the
statements made in the two letters. It
is sad that the writers of these letters
never contacted anyone at the School
District's office to seek answers to
their concerns. Anyone is welcome
to come by and review or discuss this
information.
This administration never had
a $1.4 million dollar contingency.
This amount was available as an un-
reserved fund balance under the pre-
vious administration in June 2003.
The dollars were spent as they were
legally budgeted in support of school
programs. It is possible that the State
Audit Reports were misread and the
writers confused the fiscal years. The"
current administration did not take
office until November 2004.
One of the hardest duties a Superin-
tendent has to deal with is placement
of personnel. However, the most im-
portant people in our schools are the
students. Administrators, teachers,
and staff must be utilized in the area
where they can best serve our stu-
dents. The decision to rotate admin-
istrators is a tough one. Observation
over a period of time and the consid-
eration of many intangibles must be
taken into account to make such a
move. People outside the school sys-
tem and most inside the system never
have all the .information on which
decisions are made. Friends and
colleagues are normally faithful sup-
porters of the person moved as they
do not see the entire picture. That is
understandable.
Our principals are some of the best
in Florida. They put in many hours
of training with the state and NEFEC,
perfecting their administrative and
leadership skills. None of our prin-
cipals are low performing. The rota-
tions that occurred at the beginning
of this school year were certainly not
demotions. When a position became
available at Trenton Elementary, Ms.
Ronda Parrish, then principal at Bell
High requested a transfer for person-
al reasons. Mr. Rick Reed, then prin-
cipal at Bell Elementary, volunteered
to transfer to Bell High as principal.
Mr. Reed has past experience at the
high school level. Trenton Elemen-
tary, Bell High School, and Bell El-
ementary earned "A's" last year and


have outstanding leaders this year.
Ms. Lynette Langford, principal
at Trenton High, and her staff do not
need defending. Ms. Langford is
recognized statewide as an outstand-
ing principal. She has been chosen
to present at state conferences and to
participate in "The Secondary School
Redesign Initiative." Trenton High
was voted one of America's top high
schools by U.S. News and World Re-
port and has been an "A" school for
six successive years. This year Tren-
ton High earned enough total points
to be an "A" school, but fell short in
one category (lowest 25% of students
in reading) by two points. Trenton
High, like the rest of our schools, has
a high performing, motivated staff.
In the business world responsibili-
ties and salary are tied together. The
more responsibility a position is as-
signed, the higher the salary assigned
to that position. This is not.necessar-
ily true in education. Across Florida
we fail to adequately compensate our
teachers and administrators who are
some of the most important people
in our students' lives. These are the
people who have the responsibility of
teaching your child reading, writing,
math, social studies, science, leader-
ship, social skills, and a thousand and
one other things that will enable them
.to be useful citizens and productive
employees in a 21st Century econo-
my. Our beginning teachers start at
$32,694, which may not even qualify
them to purchase a starter home. One
of my regrets is that our district has
not been able to increase our teach-
ers' starting salary to $35,000, and
our experienced teachers proportion-
ately higher.
In Gilchrist County the position
of Assistant Superintendent is an
important and complex position.
The pay for that position starts at
$87,379, and after fifteen years pays
$100,486. After twenty-two years it
pays $108,350. Anyone who holds
this position earns, every penny it
pays, and then some. The holder of
this position has over 200 teachers
and staff they are directly responsible
for. They are expected to oversee
numerous educational programs and
to attend countless meetings, brief-
ings, conference calls, handle daily
operational problems, and to work
10-12 hour days. Anyone in private
business with these responsibilities
would be paid at this level or more.
All salary schedules are approved by
the School Board upon recommenda-
tion by the Superintendent. The cur-
rent Administrative Salary Schedule
was approved by the school board on
December 11, 2007, on a motion by
Cloud Haley.and a second by Lois
Fletcher. The vote was unanimous.
One of our goals has been to raise
the rigor and relevance of what we

teach in our classrooms. If our stu-
dents are to compete for the best op-
portunities in the 21st Century, then
they must be exposed to a challeng-
ing curriculum, not only in a college
prep track but also in our career-
technical programs. It is important
that all of our students in all classes
receive top notch instruction from
exemplary teachers. I am proud that
over the last four years our career-
technical programs student numbers
have increased dramatically, and that
larger numbers of our students have
elected to take more math and sci-
ence courses.
Current economic conditions have
affected all school districts financial-
ly. Last year our district lost over one
million dollars in state cuts and FTE
shortfalls. At this time the state has
announced a 4% state holdback, in
addition to our declining student en-.
rollment, which could affect us this
fiscal year. In a recent meeting it was
announced that the state may not dip
into the "rainy day" funds this school
year, in anticipation that the financial
situation for all state agencies may be
worse in the 2009-10 fiscal year. It is
expected that the economy may start
rebounding in 2011. The incoming
Superintendent and school board will
need everyone's support during this
period of time.
Gilchrist County has a school sys-
tem of which we can all be proud and
support. It would take hours to ex-
plain the programs, technology, and
data systems that we have for the
benefit of our students starting in Pre-
k and extending through high school.
Last year our students continued to
be near the top in the state in reading,
math, and science. Our School Dis-
trict has been the Number One school
district in Florida for the past three
years. The credit for reaching this
level of excellence must go to our
teachers, staff, and administrators..
They are truly the hardest working,
most dedicated group of profession-
als that you could ask for. They do
not accept excuses for children not
being able to learn. They have high
expectations for all children. And,
everyone, starting with the Superin-
tendent, is accountable for increasing
student achievement.
I have truly enjoyed working with
this group of professionals over the
last four years and I am proud'of their
accomplishments. As my term draws
to an end in a few days I will con-
tinue to support our school system,
staff, and students in their pursuit of
academic excellence.
Sincerely,
Buddy Vickers

All Quiet At The Crossing
(Kent Heaton)

Railroad crossings dot the landscape of every Again in 1 Thessalonians 4:1,2 he writes, "Finally then,
community. It is at this place that men in automobiles brethren, we urge and exhort in the Lord Jesus that you
meet men in very large trains. Without proper restraints should abound more and more, just as you received from
and safety regulations many people would be killed in the us how you ought to walk and to please God; for you
inevitable collision of auto and train. Especially prone to know what commandments we gave you through the
tragic consequences of train crossings are buses filled with Lord Jesus." Pleasing the Lord is following His
school children. By law the school bus must stop at each commandments because we love Him (John 14:15).

A remarkable thing happens when the bus approaches We know that death is certain and as certain as death is so

becomes very quiet. The driver takes precautionary will be presented before the Lord in accordance with
actions to ensure the safe crossing and then continues on whether we have lived a righteous life or unrighteous. The

Amendment 2 Letter
Think about this proposal to pro-
tect marriage, "Inasmuch as marriage
is the legal union of only one man
and one woman as husband and wife,
no other legal union that is treated as
marriage or the substantial equivalent
thereof shall be valid or recognized."
The proponents not only want to
prevent the term "marriage" from
being applied to polygynous or ho-
mosexual unions, they want to deny
those participants in such arrange-
ments any of the 1500 or so legal
privileges and immunities afforded
married couples.
I began by asking myself is mar-
riage a religious sacrament or a secu-
lar state. In the Bible, both Lemech
and Moses were bigamists. If the
penalty for bigamy is two mothers-
in-law, one has to wonder about the
wisdom of Solomon who had 1000.
Then there's that problem of David
who twice became Saul's son-in-law,
first by Jonathan, then by Michal.
Whatever you personally believe,
there are denominations of the Chris-
tian church, which solemnize po-
lygynous and homosexual marriages.
Can state amendments regulate reli-
gious beliefs without running afoul
our First Amendment as it pertains to
the free exercise of religion? Should
they try?
But Bible says it's an abomination
before the Lord!.So is eating pork or
shellfish or wearing a cotton polyes-
ter blend. I am reasonably certain that
judgment will be rendered pass-fail
instead of on a curve and that God
will treat a faithful homosexual more
favorably than a philandering hetero-
sexual. BTW, the real sin of Sodom
and Gomorrah was not homosexual-
ity, but acting like Republicans [Ezk
16:48-50].
Increased homosexual behavior
in over populated rat colonies and
among German males born during
WWII bear out the relationship be-
tween stress during pregnancy and
homosexual offspring. In short, one
does not choose to be a homosexual,
one is born one. oOne might even
argue that homosexuality is part of
intelligent design for population con-
trol.
From the secular view, our Ninth
Amendment reads, "The enumera-
tion in the Constitution of certain
rights shall not be construed to deny
or disparage others retained by the
people." I believe free choice in se-
lecting one's life partners is one of
those rights. Cunnilingus and fellatio
were once capital offenses in Florida,
even between married heterosexuals.
In Lawrence vs. Texas the Supreme
Court recently held that matters of

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON

By Cindy Jo Ayers


Fall is in the air here in Gilchrist
County; crisp clear mornings have all
our deer hunters talking about a big
one they have their eye on. My boys
and daughter-if-law Lyndsay went
to a dove hunt on Saturday afternoon.
This of course brought on a hunt for
a box of shells John purchased last
year. We also did a little digging
through the cameo closet in J.'s old
room. Do you have a closet set aside
for hunting gear? If so....you might
be a Florida cracker.
You know, sometimes I realize just
how blessed many of us are to have
grown up in this area. In the tri-coun-
ty area traditions are still important
to us...afternoons in the dove field or
sitting in a tree stand as late afternoon
slowly fades into twilight. Hunting in
this area is a time honored tradition
handed down from father to son long
before Florida became a state.
Fall is sweet potato time, pumpkin
time, it's time for the wonderful cin-
namon scent of hot apple pies bak-
ing in the oven. Time.to cook a big
old pot of mustard greens. On days
like we've had this week I don't even
mind standing at the fish cleaning
sink down at the barn washing and
rewashing and still again washing
greens. These crisp fall days call to
me to be outdoors, to breathe deeply,
savoring the fresh fall air the Lord
has once again blessed us with.
The other day I picked up six or
eight really good oranges down at the
local Hitchcock's store. Of course the
oranges have little old labels, which


private consensual sex are beyond
government reach. We are also faced
with the conundrum of the full faith
and credit clause.
If adopted, just how will Florida'
cope with marriages and civil unions
from California, Connecticut, Massa-
chpsetts, New Jersey, and Vermont?
Will the president have to send troops
to Tallahassee?
Is there any benefit from permit-
ting homosexual marriages? I be-
lieve there are two. Public aversion
to homosexuals places a premium on
concealment. Effective concealment.
generally requires frequent changes
of partners which contributes to the
spread of venereal disease. Amanda
Blake [Miss Kitty] died of AIDS
contracted from her philandering ho-
mosexual husband. "Don't ask, don't
tell" still leaves homosexuals subject
to blackmail and hence security risks.
Normalizing homosexual relations,
like conservative Catholic Spain has,
will contribute to national security.
Will adoption of this amendment
affect me personally? No. Why do I
care if I don't have a dog in this fight?
Remember the observations of Mar-
tin Niemoller? If this passes, which
of my/your foibles will be next.
In my view, "freedom" entails the
liberty to be different or even un-
popular without fear of reprisal from
the government or a mob. That's all
homosexuals and polygynists are,
different. Restricting an individual's
choice in selecting a life partner as
part of a declaration of rights is an
oxymoron. We might as well go back
to the days of prohibiting interracial
marriage. Government should limit
its prohibitions to coercive acts, not


proclaim they are Florida grown so I
knew they would be good. During the
very last part of the 1890s a devas-
tating freeze occurred here in Florida
which forced new citrus groves to
be planted further South. During the
1800s before this freeze there were
many small orange groves in this part
of Florida. In fact at one. time Levy
County produced the most citrus in
the state. Then we went into a climate
change cycle here, and it has been too
cold up here to grow citrus commer-
cially in this area since then.
When I taste those sweet oranges,
I just have to wonder why we only
eat Ambrosia during the Thanksgiv-
ing and Christmas holidays. Why
don't we just peel some oranges and
make a bowl full while the oranges
are fresh in the store.
The following recipe is wonderful,
but it's one of those "from scratch"
recipes that takes a little time. You
could always used bagged coconut
and canned pineapple.


6 cups halved orange sections, seeds
and membranes removed
3 cups fresh pineapple, chopped
3 cups fresh coconut, shredded or
grated
1 1/2 cups maraschino cherries,
halved, rinsed and drained
1 cup pecans, chopped
Powdered sugar to taste
Combine all ingredients in a large
bowl. Cover and refrigerate for at
least 3 hours.


consensual arrangements. Floridians
who think will reject this amendment
because it doesn't protect marriage, it
restricts it.

Shame on Trenton
Football Coaches
I want to tell the Trenton Football
coaches shame on you. You let win-
ning the game become more ippor-
tant than showing your JV team re-
spect by putting in a middle school
player. Not taking away from Cedric,
he's great college and pro material.
You also brought in 10th grade var-
sity players and kept most of your JV
players on the sidelines for most of
the game. That's not showing what
these young men need to learn going
by the rules. JV is for just that, middle
school and varsity are just that.
If you could have seen from the
stands the slumped shoulders of your
team. They've practiced hard and
played hard with no losses until Oc-
tober 16.
I would have liked to put helmets
on you coaches, so I could grab you
by the face mask and yell at you..

Purple Powerhouse Band news


The UF Homecoming Parade. Left to right: Thomas Waldron, Ms. Gover, Erica Dahlgren, Austin
Myer, and Samantha Ryan followed by the poncho wearing Purple Powerhouse.


Neither rain nor dark of night could
deter the Purple Powerhouse Band of
their appointed duties. Rain it was on
Friday when the band marched in the
UF Homecoming parade. The Bell
Purple Powerhouse and Trenton Ti-
ger Marching Bands did what many
bands did not at the Homecoming
parade. They showed up, played, and
marched two miles through light to


heavy downpours. The Powerhouse
and Tiger Band Directors, their mu-
sicians, and parents did a great job
representing Gilchrist County and
should be admired for their dedica-
tion.
The Homecoming parade was
only the start of a very busy day for
the Powerhouse Band program. As
dark of night approached, the band
returned for a home football game

these extraordinary individuals. As
the widow of a Vietnam veteran, this
is a very emotional program for me.
I defy anyone to leave this presenta-
tion with dry eyes or without a great
sense of pride in our country.
Three of the band members, Er-
ica Dahlgren, Samantha Ryan and
Kristen Burke have been chosen by
Florida State University to attend the
Tri State Music Festival in Decem-
ber. The Festival hosts outstanding
musicians from Alabama, Georgia,
and Florida for four days of clinics
and instruction. The festival runs
concurrent to the FSU Prism Con-
cert. Powerhouse band members and
parents will leave early the day of the
Prism Concert so they can attend the
concert by our honorees. Congratula-
tions, Ladies!
Our Mary Kay fundraiser is in full
swing; so if you are approached by
one of our musicians, please give
generously. The band program has
a lot of fundraising this year as we
work toward replacing instruments
and uniforms.
Special note of thanks to the ladies
of the Jiffy Store for taking care of
the bands' needs before the roosters
are up these past few weeks.

portunity for our voice to be heard
concerning the future of our country.
Seeing it as more than a privilege,
America's founding fathers encour-
aged their generation and the ones to
come to think of it as a duty a sol-
emn responsibility that comes with
the sacred trust of being a citizen of
the United States.
As Christians, our faith in God
should influence our values in life,
and that includes the political arena.
We shouldn't be bashful about hold-
ing up the Bible's standards of right
and wrong. God's standards are es-
sential to a free society such as ours,
to prevent it from sliding into chaos
where everyone does what they see
fit (Judges 21:25). People of faith,
grounded in moral truth, must be pre-
pared to determine those candidates
best able to uphold God's moral'stan-
dard. As Christ's representatives on
earth, we are to be "salt and light"
in our culture (Matthew 5:13-16).
Focus on the Family's founder, Dr.
James Dobson wrote, "We live in a
representative form of government
where we are its leaders. It means


that every citizen has a responsibil-
ity to participate in the decisions that
are made and that includes people of
faith [using] his or her influence for
what is moral and just."
A recent study by the Pew Forum
on Religion and Public Life shows
that nearly two-thirds of Americans
say their faith has little to do with
their voting decisions. In fact, many
believers fail to consider their bibli-
cal values when voting, often choos-
ing candidates whose positions are at
odds with their own beliefs, convic-
tions, and values. But Charles Col-
son, founder of the Prison Fellow-
ship ministry, highlighted the need
for something more than voting the
party line when he wrote:
"Societies are tragically vulnerable
when the men and women who com-
pose them lack character. A nation
or a culture cannot endure for long
unless it is under-girded by common
values such as valor, public-spirited-
ness, respect for others and for the
law; it cannot stand unless it is popu-
lated by people who will act on mo-
tives superior to their own immediate
interest.

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 30, 2008''


On r. Ti nrht


Keeping the law, respecting human
life and property, loving one's fam-
ily, fighting to defend national goals,
helping the unfortunate, paying taxes
- all these depend on the individual
virtues of courage, loyalty, charity,
compassion, civility and duty."
"Acting on motives superior to
their own immediate interests"
means that where a candidate stands
on issues like abortion and protect-
ing God's definition of marriage and
family should be more of a decision
maker on who to vote for than what
financial relief they are promising on
the campaign trail. In Proverbs 29:2,
the Bible is clear: "When the righ-
teous rule, the people rejoice; when
the wicked rule, the people groan."
As believers, lets choose to vote next
Tuesday, and lets use our voice to
uphold God's standard by voting val-
ues...because the hearts of this gen-
eration and the next...they really do
matter! To see where your candidate
stands on the issues, go to the Chris-

Area men charged with home invasion with a firearm
Two local men were reported to have been associated in a home invasion with a firearm on Friday of a residence on SW 22nd Court. Gilchrist County
Sheriff's office reported Josh Ronald Sullivan, 28, of Newberry was charged with Home Invasion with a firearm. Samuel L. Pittman, 26, of Trenton was
charged with home invasion with a firearm and possession of a controlled substance without a prescription.
The two men were reported to have been traveling east on SW 22nd Court when they traveled into the intersection at US 129 and were involved in a
two-vehicle accident. Gilchrist County 911 Communications received a call involving a Home Invasion burglary on SW 22nd Place. A second 911 call was
received involving a traffic crash on SW 22nd Court. A neighbor passing by in this area reported the description of a.vehicle traveling east on SW 22nd Court
was identified leaving the scene of the home invasion burglary. This same vehicle moments later was involved in an accident at US 129.
Gilchrist County deputies Dasher and Merritt responded to the scene of the first call and discovered during their investigation that both the driver and the
passenger in the crash were involved in the home invasion robbery. Gilchrist County investigators Carter and Lieutenant Gentry were called to the scene
to assist deputies in this investigation.
The deputies reported that a gun was apprehended from the vehicle crash scene. Gilchrist County Sheriff's deputies arrested the driver and passenger of
the pickup truck once they were medically cleared from the vehicle crash. The men first appeared on October 26 before a local judge. Sullivan was assigned
a $150,000 bond on the charge of Home Invasion with a firearm. Pittman was assigned a $100,000 bond on the Home Invasion with a firearm charge and
$5,000 bond on the Possession of a controlled substance without a prescription charge. Pittman, the driver of the pickup truck, was charged with Driving

Thank you Gilchrist County!
During the last few months of my campaign for Sheriff of Gilchrist County, I
have continued my door to door visits to hear your issues and concerns. I have
learned that you never know what you may encounter when you walk up to a
house. I have been greeted by many dogs, cats; and even a few chickens! I
have had the privilege of meeting parents at home taking care of their children,
farmers plowing their fields, people mowing their grass and others working on
their gardens. Sometimes people ask me questions, others just want to visit
because they enjoy a friendly face, and some say thank you and shut the door.
I have met people who are voting for me, others who are undecided and some
that are voting for another. However, the one thing I am certain of, is that I have
never met a person in this county who was rude to me. During my door to door
campaign I have been reminded how blessed I am to have been born, raised and
still live in Gilchrist County. My family and I want to express our sincere grati-
tude for your kindness and hospitality shown to us during my campaign.
I would also like to express thanks to my family and friends for their continued
support during my campaign. Likewise, I am grateful and honored to have the
support of my fellow and local law enforcement officers through the endorse-
ment of the Florida Police Benevolent Association. They understand that a
sheriff must set a good example and be an ambassador for the office within the
community, and they have demonstrated their respect to me.
Lastly, I would like to remind each and every one of you to encourage your
family and friends to please VOTE! Remember, your vote does count.....As
you make a decision, I would be honored to have your vote and to serve as your
next Sheriff. As your Sheriff, I will be committed and dedicated to protect and
serve Gilchrist County Residents and I would continue to be visible, accessible
and responsive to our citizens to address issues in an appropriate way. As your
Sheriff I will always remember that I work for The Citizens of Gilchrist
County!


Sincerely,

Timely Garden
Tips: Pecan tree
pollination
The male and female flowers of
the pecan tree are separate, but are
on the same tree. The male flowers,
commonly known as catkins, are pro-
duced from lateral buds on the previ-
ous season's growth. These buds are
formed late the previous season.
The female flower has flared termi-
nal ends and is produced at the end
of the current season's growth. These
are called stigmas. The flared ends
are the portions of the female flower
on which the pollen falls.
Pecans are pollinated by wind
only. The mature catkins release the
pollen. Pollination occurs when the
pollen reaches the stigma; it is viable
and the stigma is receptive. If the cat-
kins mature before or after the stigma
is receptive, pollination does not oc-
cur.
To ensure greater pollination, com-
patible pecan varieties need to be se-
lected. This means that when one tree
is shedding pollen, the stigma on an-
other tree is receptive to receiving the
pollen. Lots of rain or no wind will
cause poor pollination. Buy trees that
match, and you will be more suc-
cessful in growing pecans.
Timely Gardening Tips are brought
to you by Leonard Allen of Allen's
Nursery, Hwy. 55 A. Old Tbwn, 542-
7284 or 356-0288.

We want to remind you that on
Friday, October 31st, from 5 to 7 p.m.
the volunteers will be waiting for you
at the library with candy and a book
for every young "Trick-or-treater"
that comes by. You will have your
picture made in your costume and
later you can pick up a copy from the
library.
There are new large print novels,
to name a few; "Tribute," by Nora
Robert's, "The Rogue" by Danielle
Steel, and "The Lucky One" by
Nicholas Sparks to tempt our adult
readers. Also, there are some other
new adult fictions in regular print.
Most of these are on the bestseller
lists.
In the junior section I found a set of
Laura Ingalls Wilder's books relating
how a family moved to Minnesota
and how things were so different
from those in Indian Territory where
they had lived before in a real house
compared to the dugout they now
occupied.
The beginning reader book I chose
to tell you about is "Old Bet" who was
an elephant and was the first animal
that Hachaliah Bailey purchased in
starting the first circus in America.
Hope to see you Friday evening

The Future of Law Enforcement
in Gilchrist County depends on Your Vote!








On November 4't 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. The next Sheriff must be elected based on
real qualifications and experience in areas our Sheriff 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 Attorney, 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 candidate is your friend. Make your choice and
cast your vote because the candidate has the knowledge, skills, & experience needed to be Sheriff.

Qualifications Roux Slaughter Willis

Kay and Richard Burkhart of Burky's Suwannee Valley Creations
shown with lamp Richard created out of local wood.


The photo above shows local
folks not only enjoying the craft
displays but also enjoying visiting
with, each other and enjoying a
wonderful fall day outdoors. The
Down Home Days event was held
at the Trenton Community Naza-
rene Church which is located a
few miles west of Trenton. Local
children also enjoyed the games
set up for them behind the craft
booths this year. Several venders
sold various food items through-
but the all day event. There were
also a couple of vendors which
sold plants of all kinds.


The 3rd Annual
Dixie Fall Festival
and Gun Show
The 3rd Annual Dixie Fall Festival
and Gun Show will held on Saturday
and Sunday, November 1 and 2 at the
Trail Riders Club Community Center
in Cross City. The activities will run
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, and
from noon until 5 p.m. on Sunday.
New this year at the Dixie Fall Fes-
tival will be a giant flea market. Craft-
ers, food vendors, and yard sale junk-
ies are invited to participate. What an
opportunity to make a little spending
money. Outdoor space is available
for rent. Registrations forms for the
giant flea market are available at the
following locations in Cross City:
Badcock's, Drummond Bank, Hill
and Cobb Insurance, Dixie County
Clerk's Office, Dixie County Li-
brary, Kings Oil and Tire, and Anne-
G. Hodges CPA. You can also have a
registration form faxed or mailed to
you by calling (352) 498-7067.
Parking and admission to the flea
market is free. There is a small charge
for the Gun Show. According to Son-
ny Wadsworth, President of the Dixie
County Rotary Club, "The Gun Show
is a great opportunity for hunting en-
thusiasts and gun collectors as there
will be gun dealers from all over the
,state showcasing their inventory."
The DAV will be sponsoring a free
concealed weapon's permit class.
This will be going on throughout the
festival.
The Trail Rider's Club Community
Center is located just off US 19/98 on
Airport Road. Coming from the south
on US 19/98 toward Cross City, turn
right at the caution light at Airport
Road, then turn left and follow the
road to the Trail Rider's Community
Center which will be on your right.
Coming from the north on US 19/98,
come through Cross City to the cau-
tion light, just past the Dixie County
Health Department, turn left onto
Airport Road, left again and follow
the road to the Trail Rider's Commu-
nity Center.
The Fall Festival and Gun Show
with giant flea market is a project of
the Dixie County Rotary Club, an in-
ternational service organization dedi-
cated to "Service above Self." The

donation. I remember how Mrs. Ford
had told me when I was talking to
her that she and Kyle had discussed
organ donation and that he had said
he wanted to donate if anything hap-
pened to him. I remember thinking
at that moment, before I had heard
more about Kyle, just how amazing
and special he must have been.
She further pointed out, "Before
we can find recipients, part of the do-
nation includes doing different tests
to see which organs we would be able
to use for transplant. In one of these
tests we look at someone's heart by
taking pictures of it and measure how
well it is working. Kyle's heart was
one of the best looking hearts either
myself, in all the years I have been
a nurse, or the doctor doing the test
had ever seen. We were able to find
recipients for Kyle's liver and both of
his kidneys. I want to just point out
a little about all these grateful, recipi-
ents that received this gift of life from
Kyle and his family. "One of Kyle's
kidneys was transplanted into a sixty-
two year old father. The kidney has
worked so well that he hasn't had to
have anymore dialysis. Kyle's other
kidney was transplanted into a sixty-
one year old mother. The transplant
center told me that the kidney began
to work immediately as soon as they
put it in," Markuson told those at-
tending the memorial service. "Kyle's
liver was transplanted into a fifty-five
year old father. I talked to his coordi-
nator a few days after the transplant.
She told me it was like night and day
seeing him after the transplant," she
added.
Kyle's heart got transplanted into a
seventeen-year-old girl that had been
in and out of the hospital many times
because of her failing heart condi-
tion. Kyle's heart was such a perfect
match for her," she added. "I heard in

the hospital and at Kyle's memorial
service just how much he touched
many of you; to that list you can add
all of these recipients and their fami-
lies as well as myself," she added.
During the donation, I was able to
see pictures of Kyle and hear some
stories about him. I will never forget
Kyle and the gift he gave. Rick, Pam,
Sara and Zachary, I only wish I was
able to meet you all, and Kyle under
different circumstances. You all have
a place in my heart, Markuson said
in closing.
Following the service at the school,
the group moved to the Bell Cemetery
where many friends released helium
balloons to remember Kyle and his
giving of his life to allow others to
live. The accident that left Kyle Ford
lifeless remains' under investigation
by the Florida Highway Patrol.


The circus is coming
It's show time! It's that time again
to take the kids to the circus. Most of
the older generation remember the
"Greatest Show on Earth," with all
the clean fun, the clowns and the ani-
mals, the excitement of the high wire
walkers, the lion fire ring jumpers,
and also the dog show.
So make sure you plan to attend
wit your children and grandchildren
for a great night out and have fun at
the Loomis Brothers Circus coming
to our area on Friday, November 7,
and Saturday, November 8, at 2 and 6
p.m. The gates open one hour before
show time. Loomis Brothers Circus
will be held at the FFAArena on Hwy
129 (Walker's Curve), between Bell
and Trenton. Sponsors of the circus
are the Character Council. Children
ages 12 and under are admitted free.

formation can be obtained by calling
