Under the watchful eyes of Frank,
Colson and his son, Ben, all but two
calves wandered through an open
field on Friday. Wary of the circu-
lating buzzards, the Colson men
checked on the two calves, both of
which appeared to be lying a bit too
still; The calves were abandoned,
at least for thetime being, by their
mothers who favored a meal of fresh
hay. As Ben eased his truck alongside
them, the calves stirred silently much
to the Colsons' relief.
"Farming is a lot of hard work,"
Frank said. "I've enjoyed it over the
years and my family has been greatly
blessed."
Having worked his family's land
in, southwest Gilchrist County for


over 50 years, Frank has endured
droughts, diseases, and hard freezes

In August, the Colson family farm,
was designated by the Florida De-

By John M. Ayers
The community was shocked and
saddened by reports that spread like
wildfire Friday morning that Susan
"Sue" Wade NesSmith, owner of the
Lighthouse Restaurant, was found
dead in her home in Fanning Springs.
Sue, as her family and friends and
anyone she came in. contact with
knew her, was reported to have left'
her family a note before taking her
own life
Gilchrist .County Sherifft David
Turner reported that 911 Dispatch
received a call from the Lighthouse
Restaurant in Fanning Springs that
the owner did not show up to open
the Well-known restaurant's doors.
The sheriff's office sent investiga-
tors to the scene and upon entering
her home-found her:inside' deceased.
'The sheriff reported the investigation
is continuing. ;:
Sue NesSmith will be remembered
for always having a kind heartand
the love she expressed for her family,
especially her son and grandchildren.
hMs. NesSmiths' love for her family
'extended not onl\ to daily visits, but.
she would often pick up her grand-
children atschool' and take them to
the AWANA program on Wednesday
evenings at 'Bethel Baptist Church
west of Trenton.
Sue NesSmith grew up in the res-
taurant business as she worked with
her mother Betty Wade to open the
Galley Restaurant at the end of the CR
349 in Suwannee. Sue married James
NesSmith, and they also worked with
Mrs. Wade in the Suwannee Pestau-
rant for some time. Sue and James re-
located the Galley Restaurant to Fan-
ning Springs where it was for several
years in south Fanning Springs on US
19. When a building became avail-
able in north Fanning Springs where
the former Chris' Restaurant was lo-
cated, the Lighthouse Restaurant was
re-located to its present location.
Ms. NesSmith was a very hard
working and driven individual. She
made the restaurant her life. Ms. Nes-
Smith worked hard in every aspect of


Sue NesSmith
the business, from busing tables to
cooking to hosting; she was driven
to make the Lighthouse Restaurant a
place where people in the community
could go and enjoy good seafood as
well as evening specials.
Sue enjoyed visiting her fam-
ily and welcoming her Pennsylvania
family to Florida. When her family
would arrive in the sunshine state,
Sue would always welcome them
into her home and provide them with
her great tasting, traditional southern
cooking. She was a wonderful cook
and had a very outgoing personality.
She enjoyed life and the many things
that came with working hard and
having a good family. It was through
her hard work that she was always
willing to help the community when
there was a need.
She was very involved in school
activities especially when her son
James was in school. Sue was also
a true friend of the Suwannee River
Fair Association. She supported the
fair for many years, and her many
purchases of grand and reserve
champion cattle will always be re-
membered by the youth that she and
other businesses partnered together
to support.
Sue NesSmith was a generous per-
son to her family and the community.
The tri-county area has lost a friend
and a very successful business wom-
an.


farms in Gilchrist County have re-
ceived such a designation; and they
are owned by C.V. Jones and Miles
Prescott.
In addition to receiving a certifi-
cate, the Colson family will be given
a sign that can 'be posted on their
property denoting its significance. '
The idea to apply for the Ceftury'
Pioneer Farm designation came to
Ben last January after he read about
the program in a magazine geared to
cattlemen.
"I've always be interested in his-
tory, especially the genealogy of my
family," Ben said.
After talking with his father, Ben
began looking online at old deeds
filed with the Alachua County Clerk
of Court.
Frank went to his safety deposit
box'and brought out other family pa-
pers that showed that the family had
retained ownership of their farm for
over 100 years.
SOriginally, the Colson family took
ownership of the farmland in 1904
when Frank's grandfather Claude
Colson purchased 160 acres along
County Road 344 from James L. and
Sabina Sims for just $600 and moved
from what is today Jennings Lake.
In those days, Frank said his grand-
daddy, who was married to Cilla
Sanders Colson, grew cotton and
corn. In 1915 Claude built a two-
story wood frame farmhouse that still.
stands on the property today.
Claude passed away in 1924 and
his son, Clyde, took over the running
of the farm using mule labor up until ,
1943 when he bought his first tractor.
According to Frank, his father .also
relied heavily on his' four children
to perform farm chores, while he
grew corn, peanuts, watermelons and
raised hogs. At the.age of 10, Frank
can remember driving the Colson's
first tractor during a tractor demon-
stration performed in an open field
behind the family's farmhouse.
As a child, Frank said he can also
remember when the family's farm-
house got electricity in 1939 and later
a telephone in 1959.


After graduating from high school,
Frank attended one year of college
prior to serving four years in' the
United States Air. Force.
After marrying his wife Mary
Kate Chavous Colson in 1966, Frank
moved off the property to a new
home near Trenton where they raised
three children Amy. Gina, and Ben.
Following his tour of duty, Frank re-
turned to the family farm where he
worked alongside his father, up un-
.til his death in 1972, and his older
brother Billy who also passed away
in 1993.
The Colson men planted row crops
of watermelons and soybeans each
year.up until 1997 when they cod-
verted to Bahia grass seed and hay.
'Since the mid-1940s the Colson
family has raised cattle. Initially,
Clyde raised purebred horn here-
fords, which the family continued to
raise until the mid-1990s when they
began cross breeding their cattle.
According to Ben, over the last
year the family has begun implement-
ing better breeding strategies through
artificial insemination.
As their herd of cattle has grown
and their farm practices diversified
over the years, the' Colson family
has purchased additional property;
and the farm has grown to some 400
acres.
SSeveral years ago Ben moved into
the old white farmhouse, which he.
plans to fully restore in a few years.
Like his great-grandfather, grandfa-
ther and uncle before him, Ben plans
to live and raise a family on the Col-
son land.
As the fourth generation to take
over management of the family farm,
Ben said he feels like farming has
changed to the point that it is no lon-
ger feasible to solely farm; therefore,
he works full time as an insurance
agent with Farm Bureau Insurance in
Trenton.
"I like the farm, but I don't feel like
you can do it full time anymore," Ben
said. "You're going to have to have
an outside income to make it work in
the future."


The Colson family farmhouse was built in 1915 by Claude and Cilla
Colson.

introduces Tiny Timber


When a stick horse comes alive in
make believe, a fair-haired, adven-
turous boy will have a .grand time
galloping through the fields, racing
at the derby, delivering the mail and
riding in the rodeo!
A horse, of course, is a special
friend when he lets you dream big
dreams and run wild with your imag-
ination.
Meet Tiny Timber-he is of course,
that sort of horse. In "Tiny Timber
Finds a Friend," children's author
and stick horse aficionado, Dan Ca-
vanah,, introduces what feels like an
old friend to the literary world. Tiny
Timber will capture your family's
heart and imagination.
As charming as it is sincere, this
brightly illustrated picture book is
perfect for beginning readers, as the
text has a rhyming pattern that makes
words easy to grasp.
Just like many children, Cavanah
had a passion for horses. Though he
was not lucky enough to own a horse,
he would play with brooms, mops
and plain ole sticks, letting his imagi-
nation run wild with his make be-
lieve horses, and the dream of some-*
day having a big horse ranch. As the
years passed he owned and trained
several horses, and would often slare
his childhood dream with others.
In 1990, a friend, Wes Seibold,
gave him his first stick horse, named
"Ole Gray," as a gag gift with a note
that read, "This can be the first horse
in that big horse ranch ou always
dreamed of. Good Luck!" Since then.
Dan Cavanah has been an avid col-
lector and is often quoted as saying,
"Stick Horses are Yesterday's Memo-
ries and Today's Good Times."
After moving to Gilchrist County,
Florida, Cavanah joined a local riding
club to make new friends that shared
his interest in horses. The only horse
he had at that time was his trusted
stick'horse, Ole Gray.. The kids all
wanted to ride Ole Gray and the
adults shared stories about the stick
horses they had in their childhood

Horses of America,'Inc. (WHOA),
to promote stick horse fun, and gave
free memberships to stick horse kids
around the world. That same year he
developed the first website featur-
ing the history and tradition of stick
horses. He promoted stick horse fun,
and coined the 'word "whoadeo" for
rodeo styled ,stick horse activities.
Today whoadeos are being enjoyed
all over the world.
In 2902 Cavanah was honored with
a Guinness World RecordT for the
"Largest Stick Horse Collection," and
was also featured in a Ripley's "Be-
lieve It or Not" syndicated cartoon.

tion of over 500 pieces became part

Meet Your Neighbor


John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


their time and they deserve to have
a process that respects thatfact. I'm
not suggesting that public comment
should be discouraged, even those
public comments that I don't like, but
I am suggesting that those comments
should come at a logical time within
the process and that unless you stick
to the plan of the process your com-
mittee members can'easily become
discouraged and the process will not
be well served.
-My second "take away" message
from the VISION meeting was where
do some of these people come from,
and what are they thinking? One gen-
tleman got up and talked about how
he had moved here within the last
year or so, Gilchrist County hasn't
changed in 50 years and he doesn't
want to see anything change. I saw
more than a few smiles from some
of the locals after that one. Another
fellow got up and suggested that we
just farm energy in our, county and
that would solve all of our problems.
Things like cost of capital and return
on, assets come to my: mind! Then
of course there's the comment about
the dreaded "Water Bottling Plants."
Water bottling plants use tiny quan-
tities of water, provide.decent jobs
and what higher and better use of our
clean fresh water than nourishment
of the human body?.
At the end of the day those.15 or
so VISION committee members need
to get together in their own time and
space and hammer out suggestions
for improvements to our comprehen-
sive plan that will be good for every-
one in the count\. I trust the commit-
tee to i~i r ecommnenti pns. that

as well as the newcomers, agriculture
as well as residential and commercial
development. They certainly'have
had public input. Now let's give them
the opportunity to do their job.

Florida Farm Bureau
opposes SFWMD
acquisition of U.S. Sugar
lands
Florida Farm Bureau President
John L. Hoblick today issued the fol-
lowing statement:
At its meeting on December 10,
the board of directors of the Florida
Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF),
.the state's largest general interest
agricultural organization, declared
its opposition to the acquisition of
U.S. Sugar Corp. land by the South
Florida Water Management District.


And He Healed Them
(Kent Heaton)


"Jesus was going throughout all Galilee, teaching in'
their synagogues and proclaiming 'the gospel of the
kingdom, and healing every kind of disease and every
kind of sickness among the people. The news about Him
spread throughout all Syria; and they brought to Him all
who were ill, those suffering with various diseases and
pains, demoniacs, epileptics, paralytics; and Hl healed
them" (Matthew 4:23-24).
The human body is a remarkable creation of design,
purpose and beauty. Few things in this world rival the
intricate patterns of each part of the temple housing the
eternal spirit of man. Because of its fleshly nature, the
body is attacked with various diseases, maladies and
sicknesses that bring sorrow, pain and discomfort.
Through the knowledge of science men have been able to
find medicines to help mend the broken bodies and stay
off disease. The medical field has exploded with new
technologies that have given life when there was no hope
of life; quality of life to many who ,had despaired at their
handicap; inoculation to stay the dreaded diseases of the
nsqt


before. Blind men cold see, deaf would hear the joyous
'music of His soothing voice ard those who could not
speak were able to praise God with a new found voice.
SIt is unknown how many people Jesus healed. Perhaps
thousands number the roll of those whose lives were
changed in a moment by the healing touch of the Son of
God. They would never be the same as they returned home
free of the plague of leprosy or knowing firsthand the joy
of a cleansed body of disease. What power and
demonstration of compassion through the healing hand of
Jesus.
SThe stories of Jesus healing are unparallel in history and
will never be repeated again. While the impact would have
been unimaginable in any time, it was but for a.temporary
period that His healing hand changed lives. Through these
wonderful acts of mercy He was confirmed as the Son of
God (John 20:30,31). The greatest healing Jesus performed
was on a wooden cross in a place called Golgotha
(Matthew 27:33-35).
The hands that had been used to bring relief to the,

Nothing in our world can marvel the power of a single spirit of sinful man. The blood of Jesus was poured on

There were no diseases Jesus could not heal. He was Christ" (1 Peter 1:18-19). Those who heard of Jesus came

Our family took the opportunity to
drive through and experience the live
nativity scene that is located on the
Hicks and Robertson family farm on
CR 313 northwest of Trenton on Fri-
day evening. Although darkness was
upon us, the presentation of the an-
gels and the bright shining star were
something to behold.
The live nativity which is pre-
sented annually by the Jennings Lake
Seventh-Day Adventist Church was
beautiful. This re-creation was very
authentic as it had live actors, both
young and more experienced, with
the live animals that were in with the
stable birth in Bethlehem so many
years ago.
As a very young child I began


The Federation firmly supports the
rights of private property owners to
acquire, use, and sell property, but
opposes the unnecessary acquisition
of more land by government.
The Federation is also concerned
that the proposed purchase would
drain funding and focus away from
implementation of the Comprehen-
sive Everglades Restoration Plan and
other initiatives in which much time
and funding have been invested. The
purchase of U.S. Sugar's land Would
likely cause thousands of acres of
productive agricultural land to be
removed from local tax rolls, leav-
ing local communities struggling to
make up for the loss of ad valorem
tax revenues and endangering their
future. Further, the plan for the SF-
WMD to purchase U.S. Sugar's land,
then lease it back to the company
over a seven-year period at a bargain
rate would create unfair competitive
advantages over other South Florida
agricultural producers.

Heart Matters
Dreaming of the perfect Christ-
mas celebration? What do you have
in mind? Of all the things, we enjoy
most about the holidays, the extra
time spent with family and friends
probably tops the fist...what a great
time to make memories! I guess we
all get that 'picture perfect' holiday
in mind from those Norman Rock-
well paintings and the holiday com-
mercials that promise us the "most
wonderful time of the year." Trouble
is, rarely does the real world live up
to those promises. Perhaps you are
spending Christmas without a loved
one this year because of death or
divorce, or maybe just the miles be-
tween you. Sometimes it may even'
be conflicting schedules that can
cause us to feel like there is no room
for us, and things don't turn out like
we hope. Mary knew a little bit
about that....
"So Joseph also went up from the.
town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea,
to Bethlehem the town of David be-
cause he belonged to the house and
line of David. He went there to reg-
ister with Mary, who was pledged to
be married to him and was expecting
a child. While they were there, the
time came for the baby to be born,
and she gave birth to her first-born,
a son. She wrapped him'in cloths
and placed him in a manger, because
there was no room for them in the
inn." Luke 2:4-7

GilchristI


december 21
5= A


Can you even imagine? About that
first real labor pain, Mary had to be
thinking, "This is not how it was sup-,
posed to be!" Giving birth to your
firstborn is a big enough deal, but
giving birth to God's Son? Surely
Mary didn't see the stable and man-
ger when she pictured her due date!
Those pretty Nativity scenes we set
up each year are wonderful decora-
tions, but the real deal was dirty and
it smelled like animals...not exactly
the place for a newborn! Only be-
cause Mary had a heart of thanksgiv-
ing and was obedient to God's plan
("I am the Lord's servant...may it be
to me as you have said...Luke 1:38)
was she able to make those sacrifices
with such grace. Instead of a soft,
clean bed, she gave birth on the floor
of a stable. Instead of her mother and
other women tending to her, she was
alone with Joseph, who was no doubt
0s overwhelmed as she was! Instead
of a cradle to lay her son, she placed
him in a feed trough.. .nope.. .not at
all what she had in mind.
As you think about this, and the rest
of the story, consider the fact that if
Mary and Joseph had been anywhere
else, those shepherds whom God
chose to be the first witnesses of the
birth of his Son, would have missed
it. Shepherds were not exactly high
on the social ladder, and maybe not
whom Mary and Joseph were expect-
ing, biut they were sent by a host of
God's angels! Who better to under-
stand the amazing truth that God had
just provided the perfect "Lamb" that'
would one day be the sacrifice to take
away the sins of the world?
Could it be that when we feel like
there is no room for us someplace, it
is because God has made room for us
somewhere else...or is making room
for someone else, to be with us? Try
this perspective when dealing with
holiday plans for your family...if
someone can't be there, look around.
and see who that might make room
for...perhaps a single adult or some-
one without any nearby family. If too


many miles or your schedule cause
you to miss family celebrations, look
around to see where God is making
room for you. Celebration is ulti-
mately up to us, and the attitude we
choose to take...things may not work
out exactly like we hoped...but God
may just have something extra spe-
cial in mind for you this year...be-
lieve it...because your heart matters!
Blessings! Angie


From the
shelves of the
Bell Library
We have purchased three large print
new books this week, but I have not
read these yet. The titles are "Cross
Country" written by James Patterson,
"Leaving Whiskey Bend" by Dorothy
Garlock, and "Your Heart Belongs to
Me" by Dean Koontz. I feel sure you
are familiar with these authors, and
one is probably your favorite.
The parade was truly special; the
floats were beautiful. Our float did
not.appear; hope we can be there next
year
If you read a book that you like,
please share it with us. Come by
the library, leave a note to The
Bookworm, or call and leave me a
message. Tell me the title, author,

To The Good People in the


Town of Bell, Florida.

My name is Teresa Yeager; I am the oldest sister and
personal representative for William C. Walden, Jr.,
aka Billybob's. I would like to thank everyone that
has stopped by and told me of the good things my
brother has done for the people in this town. He
helped everyone that needed help. He was a very
good person.

I would like to, however, clear up some of the rumors
regarding my brother's death. My brother died of natural
causes on the morning of September 22, 2008. He was
not killed over drugs and did not take his own life. I have
heard some horrible stories and would appreciate them
stopped. My brother needs to rest in peace.

If you have any questions, you can contact me directly
at 813-833-3691. But please, for my family's sake, I
need the horrible rumors to stop. I am closing his
dealership on December 27, 2008. Anyone that has a
vehicle and he is the leinholder must still make their
payments to P. O. Box 181, Bell, FL 32619. IF YOU
FAIL TO MAKE YOUR CAR PAYMENTS I WILL
PICK YOUR CAR UP.

Lt. Sean Mullins of the Levy Coun-

trust your gut feelings, and be mind-
ful of your surroundings.

A Message From Heaven
Perhaps you aren't ready yet
to have to say good-bye...
SPerhaps you've thought of things
you wish you'd said--well, so have I.
For one thing, I'd have told you
not to worry about me....
I'm with the Lord in Heaven now--
you knew that's where I'd be.
I'm sorry that you're feeling sad,
for I'm so happy now...
I've asked the Lord to ease the hurt
and comfort you somehow.
It's hard at the beginning,
but I know you'll make it through...
I hope it helps'to know
that I'll be waiting here for you.

"Never say goodbye. Say see you later."

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday,
December 11, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a great day to
visit as all of the Quilt Show quilts
and crafts are still in place, and will
be until after Christmas.
We had a great Quilt Show; we
had people in last Sunday when it
rained all day. Saturday we had a big
day with Roy Franks and the "Can't
Hardly Play Boys" out for our music.
We also had a group of Confeder-
ates with their cannons and tents all
in uniform. It was a busy ten days,
and now we can relax a little and get
ready to take crafts and quilts down
to the state, fair. This year we have
.four judges from Levy County and


look forward to it.
We are about half-full on the bus
trip. If you want to go, call 493-2801,
and we will put you down to go. The
cost is $23 per person and we leave
Chiefland at 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.
from Williston.
Greg and six young men were out
on Tuesday; they picked lemons, cut
sugar cane, and did a lot of small
chores. We are so glad we have them
to do so much for the museum.
Our lunch was great with chicken
pie, chicken and dumplings, mustard,
macaroni and cheese, salmon'salad,
cheese, cupcakes, pumpkin cake,
mincemeat pie, and so much more.

300 cars visit drive-thru nativity to see the real Christmas story live


This past weekend Gilchrist Coun-
ty and surrounding communities
were treated to the 5th annual free
drive-thru nativity presented by your


friends and neighbors from the Jen-
nings Lake Seventh Day Adventist
Church. This special event took place
on the Hicks and Robertson family


farm on CR 313.
Over 300 cars packed in with fami-
lies drove through and experienced
,the sights and sounds of the live Na-
tivity. A cast of 45 Biblical charac-
ters, including live animals, portrayed
scenes of the Biblical Nativity.
The drive-thru was an excellent
way to experience the true Christmas
story.
A very special thank you goes out
to the communitiesfor their contin-
ued participation in our annual event.
To help make the scenes come alive,
we would like to thank several fami-
lies for the use of their animals: Juan
and Hilda Rivera, Benny and Brenda
Jerrels, and Al and Geri Cruze.
We look forward to uplifting Jesus
Christ by inviting everyone to come
and experience our 6th Annual Free
Live Nativity on December 18, 19,
and 20, 2009. If you would like more
information on this event or any other
activity of the Jennings Lake Seventh
Day Adventist Church, please call
(352) 463-0599.
We wish everyone a Merry Christ-
mas and blessed New Year.

taking all three on a hayride through
the Christmas trees, watching the
trains go around and around the vil-
lage, and then sitting down to enjoy
refreshments.
Then, the real fun gets underway as
Ms. Pat and her family walk the en-
tire farm to locate the perfect tree for
their home. The sawing, cutting, and
wrapping of the tree are experienced,
by all.
A heartfelt "Thank you" to the
owners of the Neilson's Christmas
Tree Farm.
