Trenton FFA members stopped by George Jones' home on Monday afternoon to learn how to make cane
syrup. Jones told the FFA members that he and his workers had niade up three batches throughout the day.
Trenton FFA members planted their own patch of sugat cane this year and they intend to make cane syrup
in the future. Before leaving Jones' home, each student was given their own bottle of cane syrup. Pictured

River will go back before the county
commissioners.
According to McPherson, the next
step will be for Judge Glant to decide
whether Blue Springs Properties has
made a sufficient case for the county
to have to respond.
"I'm sure Judge Glant will make
this finding," McPherson said,
"Once he makes this finding, I
will have 30 days to file a response
for the county. Bhie Springs can then
respond to that, and then the judge
will decide whether to have oral at-
gument."
The county commissioners voted
4-1 during a Sept. 30 meeting to
deny Blue Springs Properties appli-
cation for a water bottling plant. At
that meeting, which lasted nearly six
hours, 50 people spoke out against
the proposed water bottling plant and

By Carrie A. Mizell
A recent decision by the Gilchrist
County Commissioners to deny a
water bottling plant application will
soon be challenged in court.
On Monday, Gilchrist County At-
torney John McPherson told the
county commissioners that Blue
Springs Properties has filed a petition
alleging that there was no substan-
tial competent evidence to support
the county commission's decision
to deny the special use permit for a
water bottling plant. The petition also
states that due process rights of Blue
Springs were denied because not all
speakers were allowed to be cross-
examined.
"There is no clear-cut law on either
issue and thus both of these will be
judgment calls on the part of Judge
Glant," McPherson told the county

contractor is-expected to begin work
.on this project within 4-5 weeks.
Mills also discussed with the com-
mission the paying of SE 70th Ave
from SR 26 to SE 80th Lane. This
.project is identified as 9/10 of a mile
of paying for a budget of $221,000
through the Florida Department of
Transportation. The engineer an-
nounced the bids that were resent-
ly received from four contractors
for this project. The bids were ,re-
corded as VE Whitehurst & Sons -
$129,467.25, John C. Hipp Construc-
tion $152,462,63, Apex Southeast
- $160, 730.23, and Anderson-Co-
lumbilt Construction $183,293.70.
Commissioner Chairwoman Lang-
ford asked Mills about the 3/10s of a
mile of paying that the DOT repre-
sentative in Lake City had told Com-


missioner Sharon Langford and Road
Superintendent Justin Watson that
would be included in this project.
IVIills pulled out the contract and re-
viewed it with the commission. Mills
pointed out that the additional part of
the identified project was not on the
contract, but if there are revenues left
in the project, most of the time the
contractor will be glad to make the
necessary adjustments.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to approve the low
bid from Whitehurst and Sons for
$129,467.25 pending the additional
3/10ths of a mile portion will be add-
ed to the project. Mills told the board
he would meet with the contractor in-
volving the additional portion of the
project. The board approved the mo-
tion by a 5-0 vote.

By Cindy Jo Ayers
In America we are blessed to have
an abundance of food for our Thanks-
giving tables thanks to the Ameri-
can farmers. This year our Gilchrist
County Journal family thought we
would share a few favorite Thanks-
giving recipes with our readers.
So this Thanksgiving when you
unfurl that freshly pressed tablecloth
and set the table with your best China
or if your family tradition is to have
your Thanksgiving meal down at
your hunting camp, don't forget to
thank the good Lord for all He has
provided for us.

Well, I have to tell you, I've been
hearing all this chatter about Brin-
ing turkey to make it moist and so I
had to try it...and well....well, it just
didn't set me on fire. The fact is, I
might have over baked it a bit or that
bringing just didn't do too inuch to
make our ol' bird moist. But I have
included the instructions just in case


someone else wants to try it. John
and I believe that frying a turkey is
the only way to cook it if you want
a moist bird. I have also printed the
directions we use to fry our turkeys.
>
Tur ey rinini .
In the past year or so it seems bnn-
ing turkeys has become very popular
with many TV chefs and food writ"
ers. Not wanting to miss a chance
to have a juicy turkey bird, I started
reading up on brimag. I ordered brin-
ing bags and even some bringing sea~
zoning from Chefs Catalog (www.
chefscatalog.com).
My mother told me that bringing
was not a new thing; she said my
grandmother had used the bringing
method for years claiming the turkey
was juicer when she soaked it in a
salty brine
After reading about bringing season-
ing, I discovered that you can make
your own brine seasoning pretty sim~
ply.
Brining Mix


3/4 cup coarse kosher salt or course
sea salt
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup boiling water
1 gallon cold water
1 tablespoon black pepper
Mix the salt and sugar into boiling
water. Once dissolved, stir in pepper
and add cold water. Chill brine com-
pletely before bringing turkey.
Cover turkey with bringing liquid
and chill 12-18 pound turkey for 6 to
24 hours. I brained a 14-pound turkey
for 12 hours. 4
You can also add dried lemon peel,
garlic, black pepper, rosemary, sage,
basil and black peppercorns.
Be sure to rinse the turkey three or
four times to remove excess salt.
After bringing, I baked the turkey
on 325 for about 31/2 hours. I basted
the turkey with olive oil and did not
season it at all because the brine was
so well seasoned.
I let the turkey cool for 45 minutes
before cutting it up. I have a large
stock pot that would work just as well


as the bag did. On one of the cooking
shows they put the turkey and brine
in a large clean bucket in an ice chest
and filled the chest with ice.

.
Fried TurkeY
1 10-pound turkey
Salt and pepper
Garlic powder
McCormick's Seasoning
Salt@ or favorite dry rub
3 to 5 gallons of peanut oil
The day before you plan to fry your
turkey, wash it inside and out; remove
the giblet pack if it has one. 1)ry off
with paper towel and let drain a little
while. Coat bird with seasonings and
put it in the refrigerator overnight.
Take bird out in time to let it come to
room temperature before frying.
Set up fish cooker in the yard. Fill
large ,pot with enough oil to cover
the bird. Heat oil to 350 degrees; use
a cooking thermometer to regulate
the oil temperature. Once the bird is
added, the temp of the oil will drop


a little. Bring oil back to 350 degrees
and keep it there by regulating your
flame for entire cooking time.
The turkey should be cooked for 3
minutes per pound. Add an additional
5 minutes cooking time to ensure that
it is done. Remove turkey and drain
on paper towels. Let turkey rest for
about 15-30 minutes before cutting.
Tip for measuring oil: The day be-
fore you plan to fry your turkey, place
the washed unseasoned turkey in the
pot you plan to fry it in. Add enough
water to cover. Remove the turkey,
and the water level will indicate the
fill line for the oil.

get stubborn in an instant if we feel
like others are trying to force us to
change, and. this can do some real
damage to our relationships. So, if
It doesn't help when others point out
or continually remind us of what is
wrong, what will? Genuine encour-
agement. At critical times in my life,
when serious change is necessary, just
knowing that someone believes in me
makes me want to change, progress,
and succeed more than anything.
In Hebrews 3:12-13 the Bible says,
See to it brothers, that none of you
has a sinful, unbelieving heart that
turns away from the living God. But
encourage one another daily, as long
as it is called Today, so that none of
you may be hardened by sin's deceit-
fulness." Translated front the Greek
language, the word for "encourage"
actually means to strengthen or to
give courage. Admit it, most of the
time when things aren't working,
we know it...we may even want to
change it. We just don't know what
to do, and we may believe that we
aren't strong enough or smart enough
to change. At this point, having some-
one list off our many flaws is not en-
couraging, nor is it helpful. Interest-
ingly, the word encourage also draws
a picture of "coming along side of'
ameone oth m. he rtehno chw

10Ve US come along side of us in our
weaknesses to share their strength
and courage, we can make positive
changes.
Before you pass judgment on those
in the past who have offend criti-
cism instead of encouragement, real-
ize that for encouragement to work,
it has to be received. When support
is continually offered and rejected
without change taking place, we wear
people out. No matter how much
they love us, no one will have the
stamina to come along side of us and
offer strength indefinitely. Accord-
ing to this passage in Hebrews, not
Only does the encouragement need
to come "today," so does the change
lest we become hardened by sin's de-
ceitfulness. We become hardened (or
aHous whenh te con men e"

change...sin is that deceitful: .
On the other side of the coln, usmg
encouragement to produce change
doesn't mean flattery...building peo-
ple up falsely. An honest appraisal
of positive character strengths is all
that is necessary: Are they gener-
ous, creative, patient, trustworthy?
Ar s wod helps uo
encourage them. Then ask Him to
bring people into your life that can
ee thec sMye ihna sun'tand MI

because your heart matters!

Letter to the Editor
Enclosed is an obituary from the
Lakeland Ledger, Lakeland, pub-
lished about my brother, Jack O.
Johnson. (See obituary page).
I am not sure if many, or any, cur-
rent local people will. remember our
family. We moved to Trenton from
Wilcox abut 1928 when the county
was formed and our mother, Murray
Johnson, was appointed by the gov-
ernor to serve as the first superinten-
dent of schools for the county. It was
very unusual'fora woman to serve in,
all elective office Atthat'tiltie
In the early days, my oldest broth-
,er, Howard, managed a soda shop
owned by Dr. May, who was the local
pharmacist, and maintained his store
across the street. In those days, we did
curb service; you would pull your car
up to the curb, toot your horn, place
the order with the soda jerk, and he
would bring it out to the car on a tray
that hung on they door. I worked for
Howard as one of those soda jerks.
The next oldest brother, Bob, served
as Florida Power district manager
for many years, and served several
years as mayor before he was moved
Z yr .we pddetohpnton
father. Mother took a job at Southem
College to help support Jack, who
was then in Southern College.
After Jack retired from the Navy,
he lived in Bartow for many years
and subscribed to the Journal to
keep up with the Trenton news. We
all have very fond memories of our
years in Trenton and the great people
in the community. '

if it is a problem in an area'
I hope the new sheriff will do a
lot to enforce these types of noise
issues," explained Commissioner
Kenrick Thomas. The board told the
property owner that they would ask
the new sheriff after he comes into of-
fice if he would attend the mid month
meeting in January. At that time the
board will try to come up with a solu-
tion to this issue.
---
The board also heard from another
property owner that has a neighbor
that shoots his high-powered rifle
over her property to scare her and her
farm animals.
The property owner told the board

a chpau o esdh s
erty. The officer explained that the
adjoining property owner appeared
to be shooting into a reasonable safe
area and there was nothing that he
could do'
The lady told the board that the
sheriff told her that if she makes
noise after 10 p.m. then she too could
be arrested.
The board told this resident that
they would look into this issue more
in detail in a future meeting.
Gilchrist County is turning away
from what it used to be when I was
growing up here in the 1960s. No
longer are there wide-open spaces
that were once cultivated in corn,
soybeans and forage crops. People
and their residences have now re-
placed these quiet areas.
Gilchrist County is changing and
the guidelines that once governed us,
as simple easygoing neighbors, will
no longer be effective. As change
continues, so will the new rules that
will. protect us fronvone another.


On Monday, November 17, a prop-
erty owner in Gilchrist County came
before the board of county commis-
sioners seeking action by the county
to identify some type of noise ordi-
nance. The retired resident told the
board that he and his wife moved to
Gilchrist County for the peace and,
quiet, and loud music 7 days a week
sometimes until late at night is not
agreeing with him,
The retired veteran told the board
that he has called the sheriff's office
and the deputy responded but the in-
dividuals know that Gilchrist County
has no noise ordinance. After the
deputy leaves the scene they begin
playing loud music again.
At the pres tvthne Gile oun-

statute that identifies a noise that a
person can be given a citation.
Gilchrist County Attorney John
IVIcPherson asked the individual ap-
proximately how far does he live
from the loud music. The individual
explained that there are two 5-acre
parcels between his property and the
individual that hosts the band prac-
tice. The man told the board that he
and his neighbors can't watch televi-
sion or do anything in peace and qui-
et as long as that loud music is going
on. He explained that he has neigh-
bors that complain of the loud music
as far as one quarter of a mile.
The board discussed the types of
loud noises that are often heard in
Gilchrist County, like large diesel
motors powering irrigation pumps
that are often used in watering crops.
John McPherson explained that a
reasonable distinction can be made to
identify the difference between an ir-
rigation motor and a loud rock band.
An officer can niake this distinction
and ask a group to reduce their noise


were to have the opportunity to meet
and learn the cane making process
from someone as knowledgeable as

A hundred years ago almost every
Florida farmer cooked out cane syr-
up, which was used by their families
as their main source. of sweetener.
Pioneer Florida housewives baked
syrup cupcakes in their woodstove
ovens and candied sweet potatoes us-
mg cane syrup.
It has occurred to me that Mr.
Jones' grandmother may very well
have made a sweet potato dish like
the recipe on page two. His grand-
mother would have had homegrown
sweet potatoes, pecans from their
pecan tree on the homestead and of
cy e he had cane sh a happy,
healthy Thanksgiving...Remember to
be thankful for your.many blessings
and pray for our country.

Letter to the Editor
Respect, where did it go
sch s eade eGHnc e ff
for Veterans Day. They keep forget-
Eng all about the people who have
died and continue to do so every day.
Veterans Day should not be taken
lightly. It is so very important. We
are free because of all those who are
in the riiilitary. Again, this year my
kids will not be attending school on
Veterans Day.because I want them to
understand that it is because of our
veterans that we are kept free. We
must never think that freedom comes
without a cost.
Our military men, including my
children's father, serve every day
knowing at any time they could be
called out and possibly have to lose
their life for our country. We must
teachourchildrenthecoktoffreedom
and how important it is to respect our
vetbrkhs. One day out of the year is
not tbo niuch to ask and to give back
to our.veterans. I thank you and my
kids and family thank you! If you're
still serving, thank you for all you're
doing right now. Thank you for our
freedom.
I have many family members that
have been in the military. Paul Crow,
Lmdel Young, and Roy Spain, and
I'm sure many of you do as well. I
hope some of you next year will
stand with me to get Veterans Day off
to show respect for people who really
deserve it.
They did have a program on the
11th for the Veterans, when they

Needless to say, I just sat there
thinking, Wow! Imagine all\ the
families who will have nothing to
eat at Thanksgiving. It would seem
that spending $20 to help purchase
a Thanksgiving dinner for a needy
family would be a better use of your
money.
I just wonder, what happened to


just eating turkey on Thanksgiving?
According to this site, we should all
be eating tofurkey (tofu turkey).
Realizing that my response is far
from politically correct, I have to'say
that I would feel more inclined to
spend my extra $20 on gas to come
home to eat turkey with my family or
better yet spend $20 to help a family
in need this holiday season,

A bailout would not replace overpaid
executives or labor (who according to
some estimates) with pension, health,
and other benefits cost $73 an hour.
A bailout won't do away with big
union bosses either. As fai- as I know,
the federal government doesn't have
experienced execs to run these com
pansies, so the same guys who ran
the ship on the reef will be messing
around to get it off or (maybe they'll
just drive it further on the rpef and

Toyota, local banks, and Southwest
airlines aren't going broke or looking
for a bailout. Good management and
good labor matters.
Many companies are forced into
bankruptcy to sort themselves out,
confront their weaknesses and mis-

banks that have been bailed out with
taxpayer money loaning some of that
money to the auto industry?

For your consideration
Residential development Have
a scientific study of land available
for residential development as des-
ignated in comp plan to establish a
stockillg rate. A livestock or produce
producer in the agriculture industry
creates best management plans, and
the federal and state governments
have established regulations to re-
quire these producers to have best
management practices. Why not do
this for human growth as well. How
many people can this area hold with-
out heavy competition for air, water,
food, and other quality of life issues?
We should also have specified zon-
ing in the county, where residential
development, agriculture, and mdus-
try can be located for the benefit of
all citizens.
- Agriculture zA possibihty easts
for the county to jom with state or
other agencies to explore establish-
ing grants to purchase farmland from
farmers willing to sell at a reasonable
price, then leasing it back to young
farmers and ranchers at a reasonable
fee, Moilies go to the general fund or
to pay off bond issues. More money
could be generated this way than
property taxes with Ag exemption
could produce. Property would be
preserved for agriculture forever.
Light mdustry There are many
forms of mdustry from agncultural to
zoology. We have plant propagation

w erniel ns5avvh do wemini
parts of the country? Don't we have a
citrus budwood propagation business
here now? Cosmetics, seed and gar-
den supply mail distribution centers
(doesn't everyone here get at least
one gardening catalog in the mail?
Modular homes, etc. I'm sure all of
you could think of a business that
could create well-paying jobs here.


- Thanksgiving is just a week away;
and I can already smell the sweet
aroma of sweet potato souffid, turkey,
and dressing that permeates the air at
my parents' house durifig the holiday
season. Initially, I thought I would
share some of my family's Thanks-
giving traditions this week or tell a
funny story about my new baby, of
which there are many, but ultimately
I decided to browse the Internet for
somy liday inspiration ,, ,
Imagine my surpnse when my
Google search directed me to la site
called "Adopt-A-Turkey Project."
Honestly intrigued, I just had td
(heck it out. .
(It seems important to point out .


at this point in my story that my ex-
tended Beauchamp family gathers for
Thanksgiving dinner each year at our
hunting camp near Cedar Key.)
With great disbelief I explored the
website. According to the organiza-
tion, one can "rescue turkeys from
slaughter and provide them life-long,
loving care in shelters in New York
or California."
The project, which began in 1986,
encourages people to ''feed a tur-
key, rather than eat a turkey, through

fear there are two kinds of people today those who trust
in God and those who do not! Those who trust in God
experience the same concerns as those who do not but
with an eye to understand the grand picture of life. They
see God as their hope; not their possessions. For those
who do not trust in God their hope is in the temporary
things of this life. The treasures of their hearts are buried
in the belief that life is about this world.
The Hebrew writer describes a horrific time in the lives
of the saints .in Hebrews 10:32-39. He describes the
suffering of these early Christians and how they had
endured "a great struggle with suffering" (v32); being
made a "spectacle both by reproaches and tribulations"
(v33). His plea is for them to not cast away their
confidence and to endure to the end (v35). He then adds
This statement: "Now the just shall live by faith" (v38).
What diligence this would produce, what vehement desire
this would instill and how better to help the Hebrew
brethren to maintain their faith.
These words of faith were of great significance to a
Hebrew. Repeated by Paul in Romans 1:17 and Galatians
3:11, "thejustshalllivebyfaith"resonatedinthehearts
of every Jew. These words came from the prophet
Habakkuk and were a call to victory in a time of great


ivill rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my
salvation. The Lord God is my strength" (Habakkuk
3:17-19).
Faith will endure forever. Homer Hailey writes, "The
growth of faith jrom perplexity and doubt to the height of
absolute trust is one of the beautify id aspects of the book
Its lesson is for all tirne. Paul asks, "Who shall separate
us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress,
or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or
sword?" (Romans 8:35). The answer is that doubt and fear
should not destroy us (Romans 8:36-39). Trusting in the
riches of this world will only bring about grief.
Living by faith is putting our treasure in heaven
(Matthew 6:19-21); not in the things of this life (Luke
12:15-21). Shrouds have no pockets but faith in God will
last. We must "rejoice in the Lord" and have "joy in the
God of my salvation" (Habakkuk 3:18). "Let your conduct
be without covetousness; be content with such things as
you have. For He Himself has said, "'I will never leave
you nor forsake you'" (Hebrews 13:5). The fig tree may
not blossom here but the tree of life will never cease to
yield fruit (Revelation 22:1-3). In that land there is no
sorrow or worry (Revelation 21:4). Trust God!

Lois Fletcher leaves School


Board
Eight years ago, when I campaigned
for the job of a school board member,
I promised the citizens of Gilchrist
County that I would work hard for our
schools, our students, and our com-
munity. I've never considered myself
a politician, just your public servant.
That's who I am. -
Now at the close of my second
term, I can truly say that "I stood by
my word" and played a small part in
helping Gilchrist County become the
number one school district in the state
of Florida for the past.3 years!

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L


02 2008


Kira Lyell
Gilchrist County is home to many
talented and smart young people who
shine and excel in a variety of ways.
Many of these high-quality young
people participate in 4-H and learn a
variety of life-skills to help prepare
them for their futures.
The 4-H'er of the week is Kira Ly-
ell, and Kira is an example of a young
person who is growing and learning
new things through 4-H. Kira is 11-
years-old and a member of the Gator
Country 4-H Club.
Last Saturday, Kira and several of
her fellow 4-Hers participated in the
Consumer Choices Judging Contest
at the North Florida Fair in Tallahas-
see. Gilchrist County's team placed
third at the annual event, which al-
.lows youth to show off how savvy of
consumers they are.
Besides Consumer Choices Judg-
ing, Kira is planning on showing Ga-
tor Country 4-H's club hog and has
participated in the sewing project.
Kira says she likes 4-H because it's
interesting and fun, and she's learned
speak in fHonto .aSoof rpeo
Timely Garden TipS
S CRIO IRSect control
Scale insects are pests on many or-
namental plants. They cause damage
by seeking juices from the plant. If
scales are not controlled, leaves will
drop and twigs and branches will
die. . .
Scales are divided into armored
scales, soft scales, and mealy bugs-
They feed by inserting their piercing-
seeking mouth parts into the plant
and in the case of females; remain
there the rest of their life.


Heart Matters
"Do two walk together unless they
have agreed to.do so?" The Bible
poses this great question inAmos 3:3.
The Hebrew translation for the word
"walk" means "a manner of life,
which gives us a clear picture of why
so many couples struggle in their
relationship. Can two people share
"a manner of life" unless they agree
to? Not happily...and many couples
make the vow, "for better or worse,
till death do we part," and share life
for years without ever agreeing on
the specific manner of life they can
enjoy.
What is so interesting is that so
many of us marry our opposites...es-
pecially m certain areas: Spenders
marry savers, couch potatoes marry
health nuts, homebodies marry tray-
elers, etc...you get the picture. Even
if we agree in some areas, the odds
are good that we won't agree on ev-
erything. We can live together for
years in constant conflict because we
never learn to walk together in an
agreed upon way. The good news
for all of us is that this doesn't mean
one person is rightkand o is dwre t
mean that one person has to do all the
changing. In fact, both of you have
some important things to, contribute
to bring balance into the relationship.
For example, spenders need savers,
to make sure there is enough money
for today and tomorrow. Savers also
need spenders to help them enjoy the
fruits of their labor and keep them
from becoming miserly hoarders.
The answer is to find mutual ground
where you can agree and begin to
walk together.
Some of the most common family
and marriage concerns we struggle
withare: Finances:(savingplanning
for retirement, tithing), child rearing:
(discipline, curfews, etc), housing
e 9no Tone '
alone or with others), health and fit-
ness: (eating habits, exercise, routine

"Thank you for remembering our sol-
diers and vets with such a spectacular
dedication." These are just a few of
the many accolades the JROTC ca-
dets received after perfornnng their
stirring and emotional Veterans Day
performance.
On November 6, the Bell High
School Army JROTC and Symphonic
band presented their annual honorary
salute to our nation's Veterans. The
program, in addition to honoring our
Veterans, also educates and reminds
the students about the sacrifices our
service members and their families
have made and continue to make. The
program was presented three times,
twice for the students, and an evening
performance for the community.
Each performance involved a liv-
ing history format using cadets to
represent Veterans in period umforms
from WW1 to present day operations,
speaking in the first person. The pro-
grani also included a procession of
our nation's state flags, which rep-
se ed the undt f our nations fol

program.
The Salute to our Veterans was a
collaborative effort among the Bell
High School students. The band's
outstanding selection of patriotic
soligs, coupled with posters and ban-
ners by the Social Studies and Art
departments, were essential to the
program's overall success.
The students and public left the
presentation with a better apprecia-
tion for our Veterans. This event is
truly a labor of love and is in keeping
with the JROTC cadet motto: "De-
veloping Young People to Become
Better Citizens."

is currently under review by the Gil-
christ Board of County Commission-
ers. The proposed community would
develop the land around the existing
FAA- and FDOT-approved public
airport with homes, a golf course, a
nature trail and a small community
center. Mr. Stiles told members that
while the bulk of the housing market
has slowed dramatically around the
state and our country, the market for
aviatibn-related, second-home com-
munities is still strong. His company
has studied extensively similar com-
munities, the type of homes that are
successful, and their traditionally low
impact on their counties. He pointed
to such communities as Mountain Aid
in Yancey County, NC. He spoke of
his.desire to work with the people
and public administrators of Gilchrist
County and encouraged the Rotar-
ians to stay involved in the public
debateabout the future of the com-
munity. He asked members to attend
the county's last vision committee
meeting Dec. 2 at 6 p.m. at Trenton
High. He told members that the citi-
zens have a unique opportunity to be
involved in the county's planning,
which is not often offered by public
administrators elsewhere.

On Monday the Rotary Club wel-
comed Terry Stiles, Chairman and
CEO of the Stiles Corporation, and
part-owner of Oak Tree Landing, to
speak about how he got mto bust-
ness, his opinions about our nation's
economy, and the project proposed
for Rudy's Airport. Mr. Stiles told the
Rotarians how his father, Howard,
created the once-small construction
company in 1951 to build a hand-
ful of single-family homes. Tragi-
cally, Howard died suddenly of a
heart attack, and Terry was called
to take over the business when he
was just 23 years old. Rotarian Todd
Gray of Gray Construction told the
group of Mr. Stiles' long list of ac-
complishments, which include the
Sun-Sentinel's "Philanthropist of the
"Year" agrard in 2003, "Citizen of the
Year,'' by.the City of Fort Lauderdale
in 1999, the United Way's "Commu-
nity Hero" award and was asked to
carry the torch in the 1996 Olympic
cross-country relay, the 2005 Indus-

Jack & Jill Children's Center and a
Board member of the Museum of

He is a Rotarian but he doesn't
know it," Mr. Gray Joked when list-
ing Mr. Stiles' many philanthropic
achievements.
Mr. Stiles told the members that
he believes in being a good citizen
and giving back to the community.
Mr. Stiles said that our country's
economy has been difficult for ev-
eryone and that through his many
years in business, he has seen similar
downturns. Yet, the economy eventu-
ally recovers, as it will again. He en-
couraged businesses to use this time
to find opportunity to help them get
through this period and stay strong.
Mr. Stiles spoke of his hope for the
Oak Tree Landing Development at
what was once known as Rudy's Air-
port on CR.'232 at the county line
and his hope to fulfill the dreams of
the former airport's owners Rudy
Glover and Mike Wiesen, who both
planned to develop the land as a fly-
in community, the highest and best
use of the property around the air-
ort. The Oak Tree Landing proposal
