Since the 2007-2008 school year,
* Gilchrist County has lost 120 stu-
dents, which is a drastic decline from
the typical growth of 20 students per
school year that the district had been
experiencing. According to Thomas,
the school district earns money for
every sttIdent enrolled in the coun-
ty's school system and the decline
in numbers coupled with the state
rollback cuts could cost the Gilchrist
County School District as much as $1
With over 80 percent of the school
district's budget designated for per-
sonnel, Thomas said inevitably some
positions will have to be cut.
"We are looking at every policy
we have from travel to the number of
phones and copy machines we have
to see what can be cut," Thomas said.
That's only a small percentage of
the budget, but nickels and dimes add
up to dollars. .

Truthfulness strengthens relation-
ity. Truthfulness helps the individual
to discover the secret to consistency
by thinking the truth, speaking the
truth, meaning the truth, acting in
truth, and living the truth.
There are certain keys in assisting
anyone to build truthfulness in their
lives. In doing so, they must face the
facts, not exaggerate, not cheat or
steal and encourage truthfulness in
themselves and others. For doing so,
understanding comes with the fact
that a stable society depends on the
honest observance of regular stan_
dards based on truth.

acter trait for this month, this author

My family and I have lived and
worked in Gilchrist County for many
years, and after Wednesday, Novem-
ber 19, 2008, our lives have changed.
I am speaking of the brutal homicide
that took the life of Bell native A.M.
Kelly, Jr. To have some one in our
community who is capable of com-
mitting a homicide of this degree
makes me feel like I need to carry
a pistol as a side arm to protect my
family and myself.
Kelly \vho have lived in this county
for many years. These folks have trust
in people. Mr. Kelly had become so
disappointed in law enforcement that
he felt he must deal with this situa-
tion his own way. He could not get
the Sheriff's Office to cooperate with
him and arrest the persons who had
fact that he would have to deal with
these people himself.
This past weekend I went and sat
down and talked with Mrs. Mildred
Culpepper for some time to get a
clear understanding involving this
type of burglary homicide which
took the life of her closest friend in
Mrs. Culpepper and her entire fam-
ily have been devastated by this trag-

from Junior by 10:00 a.m., that she
went to his residence on CR 341

Mildred found the evidence of the
most violent homicide on record in
resident of Bell that was a success-
ful farmer that had land, cows and
worked hard all of his life. He cared
for Gilchrist County and .was more
than a fnend to the many people that

in the Suwannee River Shrine Club.

joy and peace that brings hearts of men to look into their

the same things. This season of thanksgiving cannot be
limited to a day, a week or a month. The feeling of
thanksgiving is given with each new day that dawns upon
the frail time of man upon the earth,
"Life is but a vapor," James tells us (James 4:14).
Upon this short life we should find the importance of
learning to be thankful for the manifold blessings of life in
this world and the world to come. Thanksgiving is to
understand the value of family as God established in the
beginning of time. Through the recent events of
September 11, myriad of families have found a bond and
closeness lost in the busy rush of life. The importance of
family has risen to the top of the consciousness of our
nation once again. The strength of any nation is founded
upon the thanksgiving expressed in the family as God
reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father
feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"
(Matthew 6:26) Paul said that "In Him we live and move
and have our being." (Acts 17:28) We exist because God
holds our breath in His hand. (Daniel 5:23)
Of all the blessings we have in our relationship with one
another and the power of God's creation to exhibit His
blessings upon us, none can compare to the blessings given
through God's Son as found in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 says'
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus
the heavenly places in Christ." To be in Christ one finds
the highest of all blessings and that of eternal life. These
blessings cannot be found outside of Christ. The greatest
message of thanksgiving for man is when Jesus rose frolia
the dead and the path of salvation was opened. Not until
men come to Christ and obey His message of salvation
will the blessings of thanksgiving be given. (Matthew

Congratulations to Bell Students
Kristen Burke, Erica Dahlgren, and
Samantha Ryan. These students are
the only three students from Gilchrist
County to have been selected to par-
ticipate in the 28th annual Florida
State University Tri-State Band Fes-
tival. Their selection to this Festival
was determined in large part based
on a superb recommendation written
by their band director on their be-
half. Band directors wrote hundreds
of magnificent recommendations for
their finest students-but only 1 in 3
students were chosen for Tri-State.
They are among the high school mu-
sical elite in Alabama, Florida, and
Georgia. This honor is in Tallahassee
in December and is an electrifying
and. possibly life changing musical
Gilchrist County and Bell High
School should be extremely proud
of Kristen Burke on bassoon, Erica
Dahlgren on flute and Samantha

The Trenton High School Teacher """""""
Cadets are preparing to begin their
field experiences in classrooms
by teaching lessons to their fellow
teacher cadets. For the past 12 weeks
of school we have discussed many
components of teaching. Not only
what makes for good lessons plans
and teaching strategies, but also char-
acteristics of good teachers and class-
room management. We have studied
about students' preferred learning
styles and the important e of differen-
tiated instruction. Whether a student
is an auditory, visual, or kinesthetic
learner, the cadets' lessons will in-
clude something for every learner.
We have had some fun and infor- .
native lessons in the last two weeks. Of
Christina Locke taught a reading les- Christina Locke
son on "Oobleck," from a Dr. Seuss
book called "Bartholomew and the
OOBLECK." The students made
some oobleck for themselves and q,
we had a great time. Libby Knight
taught a lesson on frost and conden-
sation; Ashley Cribbs did a Christmas y g
craft lesson maki reindeer from
cupcakes, yum! Other lessons have
been taught by Travis Sessions on air
pressure, and how air is used to.1ift
heavy objects. His lesson included a
power point presentation, and a large
trash bag he prepared with ten straws
sticking out of it. The cadets lifted an-
other student off the floor by blowing
into the bag. It really worked! Wow!
*Ashley Manos taught a lesson on
budm ngeludatsetdngu a lo 1,
the Saxophone. Kacy Smith taught a
lesson on chemical reactions, specifi-
cally, liquids changing to solids. To
demonstrate with a hands on activity,
the other cadets made ice cream by
measuring and mixing the ingredients
in a small bag, then putting that in a
large bag with ice and salt and toss-
ing it until the liquid became solid.
Not only educational but delicious!
I am very proud of these Teacher
Cadets and the lessons they have
taught. It is not easy preparing a les-
son plan, meeting all of the require-
ments, following through with a les-
son that holds the interest of your
peers, and is a learning experience.
I am looling forward to more great
lessons this week from the rest of the
Trenton High School

Three Bell FFA members and
their advisor, Mr. Bill Martin, tray-
eled to Indianapolis, Indiana, to the
National FFA Convention. Chelsea
Meyer, David Kirkland, ahd Harry
Martin were the three lucky students
that shared the experience along with
50,000 FFA members from across the
. They left on Monday, October
20th, arid the first stop was in Pigeon
Forge, Tennessee, where they spent
a day at Dollywood. While there,
they learned many different skills
that were essential to life many years
ago. The glass blowers and the old
time handmade carriage makers were
some of the most interesting crafts-
men to watch. Even though it was
cold compared to Florida, they thade
time to ride the many different roller-
coasters and water rides.
They made it to the First General
Session pn Wednesday night. One of
the tasks that had to be accomplished
was to get as.many signatures from
FEA Membes;s from other states. It
gave them all a way to interact and
meet different FFA Members. They
attended the career show and other
leadership events and attended other
general sessions. One night there
was a hypnotist show where Chelsea
Meyer was among the 'few people
that were hypnotized. Chelsea Meyer
thought she was Taylor Swift and
sang her top song "Picture to Burn on
stage" in front of 2000 people.
On Friday night, they attended the
Indianapohs Bull Bash along with
many other FEA members,
On Saturday morning, they started
their journey back home. After stop-
ping at Mammoth Caves for a two-
hour tour of the caves, they arrived in
Chattanooga and spent the'final night
of their trip there.
On Sunday afternoon, tired and
worn out, they arrived back in Bell.It
will be a trip to be remembered.
