Waccasassa man dies in a mobile home blaze Wednesday morning


By John M. Ayers
A severely handicapped resident
of Gilchrist County was killed in a
doublewide mobile home fire in the
Waccasassa Lake community early
Wednesday, Feb. 21.
James Easton apparently .could
not escape his attached room soon
enough before the fast moving fire
and smoke caught up with him and
caused his death. His body was found
near the rear door where he appeared
to have been trying to escape the heat
and heavy smoke.
Gilchrist County Fire Rescue was
dispatched to 6689 S.E. 91 Trail at
12:44 a.m.
Upon arrival, firefighters from
Station 4 found the doublewide mo-
bile home to be fully overtaken with
flames.
Carlos Perez, Gilchrist County Fire
Chief, reported that Valorie Gilhuber,
59, a co-owner who occupied the
residence with Easton was awakened
by the heat and smoke of the fire.
Perez explained that she reported


having tried to get to the door near-
est Easton's room, but was unable to,
due to the heat and smoke.
Perez reported the woman ran to a
neighbor's residence, some 400 feet
from the fire to call 911 and report
the fire.
An estimated 10-15 minutes had
passed from the time the fire *was
discovered to the time the call was
received by 911 dispatch. Firefight-
ers from Station 4 were advised that
someone might have been trapped in
the burning residence, but when En-
gine 4 arrived, they found a very nar-
row driveway, partially blocked by
debris and no access for a second fire
truck to get near the burning struc-
tures.
As more firefighters arrived from
Station 4 (Southeast), Station 25
(Trenton), Station 3 (Spring Ridge),
and Station 22 (Fanning Springs) fire
hose lines had to be extended by hand
over, a distance of 600 ft. This de-
layed the personnel fighting the fire.
But Perez later indicated that the de-


City Commission approves

ordinance to allow

used vehicle sales, repair

on Main Street


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission ap-
proved the amended ordinance 2009-
09 on first reading to pave the way
for a proposed new business to sell
used cars on Main Street. This meet-
ing was scheduled for 5:30 p.m., but
due to a shortage of elected officials,
City Manager Jered Ottenwess had to
call and attempt to contact the ,three
remaining commissioners to have a
quorum with Mayor Glen Thigpen
and Commissioner Tim Kinsey.
At 5:50, p.m. the Planning and
Zoning Board met as Commissioner
Marcia Helms arrived at the meet-
ing. The three Commissioners seated
as the Planning and Zoning Board
heard the single item on the agenda.
Commissioner Kinsey made the mo-
tion to approve the PZ/LPADR 09-1
Text Amendment of Section 4.13.4.4.
Commissioner Helms agreed with a
second as the three commissioners all
agreed.
The Planning and Zoning Board
adjourned as -the City Commission
opened their meeting. Commission-
er Kinsey told a very small group
of public attending the meeting that


he was on the City Commission in
2002 when the council took action
to amend the ordinance and disallow
used cars and trucks from being sold
and repaired' in the Central Business
District in the downtown area. Kinsey
said that he was in favor of amend-
ing the ordinance if it would spark
growth and business in the downtown
area. Since I don't hear or see any
opposition to oppose this ordinance,
I make the motion to approve Ordi-
nance 2009-09 and LDR 09-01 Text
Amendment, Commissioner Kinsey
explained. Commissioner Helms was
again in favor as she gave a second to
the motion. The Mayor asked for in-
put from the public and no one spoke
against the action. The board voted
3-0 in favor of adopting the amended
ordinance.
' The board will hear the Ordinance
2009-09 in their March 9, 2009 meet-,
ing. If the Commission approves the
proposed ordinance on second read-
ing, the applicant will then be re-
quired to have a Special Exception,
which will also have to be approved
by the Commission. The public is
welcome to attend this meeting.

lay would have made little difference
in the final outcome since on arrival
of the fire, the burning structure was
well involved already and most of the
roof structure had collapsed. -
Dexter Lewis, Gilchrist County
Fire Investigator, was called and he
immediately called the State Fire
Marshall's Office as required by state
law. Investigators were on the scene
all morning and have concluded the
specific cause of the fire will prob-
ably never be determined because of
.the extensive property damage. Elec-
tricity on the unit had been cut off for
months prior for non-payment, and
it was reported that Easton was us-
ing candles and kerosene burners for
light and warmth.
. Fire units were on the scene for
over five hours, extinguishing and
overhauling the spot fires that con-
tinued to bum into the early morning
hours. Fire companies from Fanning

Trenton Sr. FFA Chapter wins state dairy judging contest


By Carrie A..Mizell
After months of preparation, Val-
entine's Day was celebrated by mem-
bers of Trenton Sr. FFA Chapter's
Dairy Judging Team in grand fash-
ion, as the team placed first in tlhe
state dairy judging competition.
Team members Julie Harrison,
Casey Jury, Matthew Langford and
Taylor Langford will now move on to
compete in the national competition,
which will be held at the National
FFA Convention in Indianapolis, In-
diana.
According to Steve Broker, Tren-
ton Sr. FFA Chapter Advisor, ilhe
dairy judging team has worked hard
preparing for competition since Oc-
tober 2008. The team placed first in
the local dairy judging competition,
which was held in December, making
it possible for them to compete in the
state contest held last weekend at the
Tampa State Fair.
In the -state competition, .team
members had to take a 25-question
test on dairy facts and information,
have knowledge of dairy pedigree,
and complete a team activity, which
were questions about DHIA. The
team then had to judge six classes of
dairy cattle, which included Holstein
cows and heifers, as well as Jersey
cows and heifers. When finished, the
senior team prepared two sets of oral
reasons, which had to be given to a
panel of judges.
Taylor Langford was named high
individual in the state, and Casey
Jury earned a 9th place rank in the
state.
The senior dairy judging team was
not the only team to make headlines at

lor Langford was named high individual in the state.


the state competition; the Trenton Jr.
FFA Chapter's Dairy Judging Team
placed second in their division. Team
members included: Kaylee Crawford,
Lori Harrison, Kacee Langford and
Austin Polk. Kacee Langford also re-
ceived accolades for placing second
high individual in the state.
The chapter would like to send a


special, thanks to Alliance Dairy and
North Florida Holsteins for allowing
the members to practice judging dairy'
cattle in preparation for this contest.,
While at the state fair, Trenton FFA
Chapter also had junior and senior
teams competing in the poultry judg-
ing contest. According to Heather
Rucker, Trenton Jr. FFA Chapter Ad-


visor, the contest serves as a practice
contest for the teams to help prepare
them for the state contest, which will
be held in April.
Senior team members were Lee
Deen, Josh Leverette, Travis Ses-
sions and Erika Williams. Junior team
members were Brent Lanier, Austin

The group shown above are part
of North Florida Holsteins' Interna-
tional Student Program.
For the last 18 years, the dairy has
had nearly 200 participants in the
program. According to Don Ben-
nink, most come with either a four-
year degree or a veterinary degree.
"They have been from every in-
habited continent," Bennink said.
The training teaches them large
dairy herd management. The students
spend time in each department on the
farm. Upon returning to their home
country or other countries, most soon
assume a leadership position.

FA Bell Library

Recently I found an exciting
paperback, book written by Diana
Palmer with a very misleading ti-
tle, "The Texas Ranger," filled with
mystery, intrigue, romance, mur-
der, and more romance. The novel
was well-written, and a real page
turner.
The library board feels we need
to remind you that with the com-
ing of Daylight Savings Time the
hours will change to 2:00 until
6:00 p.m.
Also, we need to inform our pa-
trons that We are a volunteer orga-
nization and are not affiliated with
the Gilchrist County Library in
Trenton. Our hours are determined
by the volunteers' availability and
are not by the hours 'at the library
in Trenton. .
Darrell Bryan, Mayor of Bell,
will be holding storytirme one
morning a week. Watch the col-


umn for an exciting announcement
of when this will be scheduled.
We have had many calls related
to Income Tax filing. We do not
have the personnel to assist with
this, but we do have the forms and
can make copies of these for 10
cents per page.
For the junior readers we would
recommend an updated edition "The
Mutiny on the Bounty" written by
William Bligh. Read! And discov-
er the experiences of a young boy
in earlier days.
For the beginning readers, I sug-
gest a Disney book, "Mickey and
Goofy down Under, An Adven-
ture in Australia." The Eucalyptus
leaves shipments had been delayed
and the koalas in the zoo were
hungry.
Hope to see you at the library
soon.

It's been almost a month since the
Mounds family lost their home in a
devastating fire that took all their pos-
sessions.
Hoping to help the family in their
time of need, members of the Trenton
Jr. and Sr. FFA Chapters initiated a'
contest to raise funds for the family.,
According to Heather Rucker, Jr.
ChapterAdvisor, three of the Mounds'
children attend Ag classes at Trenton
Middle-High School. .
After bouncing around a few ideas,
chapter members ultimately decided
to select an FFA Princess from the Jr.
Chapter and an FFA Sweetheart from
the Sr. Chapter.. The titles would be
awarded to the chapter members
who raised the most money for the
Mounds family.
Once the funds were collected and


counted, Asheton Sanchez of the
Trenton Jr. FFA Chapter was named
FFA Princess. An eighth grade stu-
dent at TMHS, Asheton is the daugh-
ter of Marty and Connie Sanchez.
Tenth grade student Katie Wilker-
son was selected as FFA Sweetheart
after raising the most funds in the Sr.
chapter. Katie is.the daughter of Mi-
chael and Sarah Wilkerson' of Tren-
ton. .
Many friends, family members, and
local businesses contributed funds to
FFA members for this worthy cause
during the 10 day collection period.
Katie said she held a cake auction
at the Ocala Livestock Market, where
her mother works.
Once all the funds were collected,
the Jr. and Sr. Chapters raised $2,040
for the Mounds family.

I f1UIX Y J-JPLOI,,


The Trenton City Commission
stood on the curb Monday evening
on whether to amend an ordinance
to once again allow the sale of used
vehicles and repairs in their central
business district in the downtown
area.
I was disappointed that this single
item on the agenda was so unimport-
ant that the Commission had to wait
for a third member of their elected
body to attend in order for the Coun-
cil to have a quorum.
The City Commission in 2002
began writing and establishing this
ordinance to clean up the down-
town area in lieu of a business that
was unable to clean up their problem
and continue to operate. Since the
passage of the 2002-11 ordinance,
which disallows the sale and repair
of used vehicles in the central busi-
ness district, the City of Trenton has
been able to'keep the downtown area
clean. Although the downtown area
is slumping with closed buildings,
the downtown business owners hope
to have the downtown area revived
by the time the slumping economy
gets back on its feet.


I he sale and repair ot used ve-
hicles in the central business district
is an idea that. I agree the council
should review. I hope for the future
of the downtown area that the Com-
mission will take a long look and lis-
ten to people about this proposal. A
special exception is required for an
applicant to open a business for this
type of use.
When a business wants to open in
the downtown area, that applicant
should consider many things includ-
ing traffic, parking congestion, and
other issues, depending on where the
proposed business is to be located.
The worst thing the Commission
could do is permit a business in a
location that would be a problem in-
volving traffic and parking, as growth
occurs in the downtown area.
Will the Commission make a de-
cision for the improvement of the
downtown and community area, or
will they go forward and just approve
an amendment to allow this use again
in the central business district? We
will wait to see, with anticipation if
ihe public will get involved for the
improvement of their downtown
area.


Now arie Mie

By CameA.-Mizell


Poor economic conditions have led
my little family to take cost-saving
measures lately. Like all Americans
trying to get by during tough times,
our family has begun clipping cou-
pons and buying the generic brand
of some products. Adam and I have
also stopped going out to eat as often,
and are learning to eat leftovers. Did
y'all know it's possible to make three
meals in one week off one whole
chicken? I am learning that just about
anything is possible if you stick with
a budget while shopping for groceries
and keep cost saving in mind while
preparing meals.
As unemployment numbers climb
throughout the United States, Adam
and I feel so blessed to have jobs.
Thus far, we have not been directly
affected by economic strife, but that
has not. stopped us from trying to
prepare for the day, should it come,
when Adam is unable to find forestry
related work.
Not everyone is so lucky.
My heart broke recently when I
read the story of the five-month-old
baby who almost died from drinking
watered-down 'formula because his
mother was trying to cut costs.
While we, were growing up, my
parents led by example in teaching
J and me that when hard times come
we all must step up and do what is
needed to get by.
That being said, I, Carrie Ayers
Mizell, who could not even sell my
safety patrol candy, have taken to


selling advertising. You see, I look at
my job at the Journal as a luxury; one
that I intend to hold on to. Therefore,
every Friday morning I swallow my
fear and stroll into businesses, in-
troduce myself, and ask a business
owner to put their faith in us.
The first door I knocked on was
literally slammed in my face. Let me
tell y'all, that will build some charac-
ter in you quick! I am learning quick-
ly that rejection is a part of the job;
the secret is to just keep going after
it. Without the revenue the advertis-
ing generates, the Journal might be
forced to make some hard choices in
the future.
Advertising dollars are what pays
for the newspaper staff, the paper to
be printed each and every week, and
the mailing costs, which as you know
have steadily increased over the last
several years.
Advertising in the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Journal does pay. Our readers see
the advertisements in the newspaper
each week and then patronize the lo-
cal businesses.
In times such as we are currently
facing, it will take neighbors helping
neighbors to see us through the eco-
nomic uncertainty.

Living Life Without Regret
(Kent Heaton)


Life is filled with many challenges. In any length of
time decisions will be made that will bring about sadness
and regret. The reality of life is not that there will be no
regrets but that thoseregrets will be few. Adam and Eve
lived with the regret of one decision that forever changed
their lives and the destiny of mankind (Genesis 3). Noah
found grace in the eyes of the Lord and was a just man,
perfect in his generations. He walked with God and moved
with godly fear, prepared the ark for the saving of his
household (Genesis 6-8; Hebrews 11 i7). Yet he got drunk
one day and indirectly led to the curse upon his own son,
Canaan (Genesis 9:18-29).
Abraham is the father of the faithful (Romans 4:16) but
his life is marred by the regret of his lack of faith when he
lied to Pharaoh (Genesis 12) and Abimelech (Genesis 20).
Moses, the. great leader of the people of Israel,
accomplished so much in his life and remains the image of
the Old Testament covenant that bears his name (Joshua
8:31). The greatest tragedy of Moses' life was not the
killing of the Egyptian (Exodus 2:11-15). Sadly when in
anger he fails to give the Lord glory at Kadesh (bringing
water from the rock) the Lord tells Moses he would not
bring the people of Israel into the land of Canaan
(Numbers 20:1-13).
King Saul would live to regret his decision to offer an
unlawful sacrifice (1 Samuel 13:1-5) and for sparing King
Agag (1 Samuel 15). His kingdom was taken away from
him and David ruled in .his place. The giant killer David
lived a life worthy of following as he shows courage
before Goliath, mercy to King Saul and friendship to
Jonathan. However he is also remembered for the decision


he made that would haunt him the rest of his life and be
inscribed on the pages of God's words until the end of
time. Who does not know the story of David and
Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11,12)? His regrets were numerous
as he caused the death of a noble man (Uriah), the, death of
the child born through the adultery with Bathsheba and the
punishment from the Lord as Nathan explained in 2
Samuel, 12:10-15). Later, Matthew Would record the
following words: "Jesse fathered David the king. And
David the king fathered Solomon of her who had been
wife of Uriah" (Matthew 1:6). Life with regrets.
The rich young ruler would regret his decision
(Matthew 19:16-22), the Jews would regret their denial of
the Messiah (Acts 2:36-39), Peter denied the Lord (Luke
22:54-62), Paul persecuted the church (Acts 26) and the
list is legion of those who lived every day with regret. The
only one who. lived a complete life with no regrets was
Jesus Christ (1 Peter 2:21-24).
What is the value of the lesson? Because we are frail
creatures of dust and disobey the Lord we will experience
times in our lives when the event can never be changed
and we will carry the burden of that knowledge our whole
life. The victory is found in Jesus Christ who does not
suggest there will not be failures in life but the ability to
work through those failures. Through forgiveness we can
know that our mistakes will not be eternal (1 John 1:5-9).
We must strive to live life with fewer regrets! With all the
people of God that lived with regret the one decision they
made that had eternal consequences was to be obedient to
the Lord. Failure to follow that pattern will lead to a regret
that has eternal consequences (Matthew 7:21-23).

Allstate.
You'rein good hands.


You know they just don't make
stuff like they used to. I am talking
about kitchen appliances specifically.
For the past month, or so I have been
cooking on a hot plate and in an elec-
tric frying pan that has been resur-
rected from that dark hole which is
my comer cabinet.
You see, my stove went haywire
after a -few buttons on my control
panel went out. I ask you, what in
the world was wrong with a good old
fashioned knob. I know they don't
look all sleek, and they don't have
lighted numbers which glow, but they
do work for years. A few days after
the control panel started acting up, I
was cooking and heard a loud crack-
ing sound. It sounded just like glass
cracking; but after looking around, I
could not see anything near the stove
area that broke. Well, low and behold,
while wiping off my glass stove top,
I noticed a great big old crack lead-
ing from the left front burner toward
the back right burner. I just cooked
on the two good burners for a little
while;, then the cracks spread, and I
dug out my trusty hot plate and elec-
tric frying pan.
When I started having trouble with
the control panel, which sets my oven
temperature and the timer, I checked
on a price to replace it. The part alone
without labor was $800.00, and the
glass top was over $400.00 without
labor.
The 4 and 5 keys on the control
went out months ago. So if I wanted
to bake on 3500, I would punch in
360 and just bake things for a little
shorter time. If the recipe called for
baking at 4000, I would set the oven
to 399. But If it called for 4500, there
was no way.
I have been limping along for over
a month while I have shopped for the
perfect stove. At this point all I can
tell you is they just don't make them
very well any more. I hate like the
devil to keep tossing appliances in
the land fill. It's funny that there was
a time when appliances were made'
to last for sometimes 20 years or so.
Now days it seems that major appli-
ance companies only make applianc-
es to last until the one-year warranty
has ended.
Young people love those control
panels; but, let's face it, I am quickly
becoming a dinosaur and a good old
fashioned knob suits me just fine.
More than one appliance man has
told me the power surges are mak-
ing the control panels die quickly. I
guess that is a good thing if you want

to sell control panels repeatedly for
the same stove.
I plan to keep puttering along until
I can find a stove that I can live with.
One thing is for sure; there is no get-
ting around that evil control panel. I
don't believe they make a stove worth
having that doesn't have one.

Since my oven still bakes, I have
been on a bread baking binge lately.
I know, I know these hips-don't need
hot homemade 'bread, but it sure is
good.

Mix 2 cups whole wheat flour with
2 cups unbleached all purpose flour.
1/2 cup instant nonfat dry milk
powder
1 tablespoon salt
2 1/4-ounce envelopes active
dry yeast
3 cups water, divided
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons butter
2 to 3 cups. unbleached all purpose
flour
Beat 3 cups of the flour mixture,
dry milk powder, salt, and yeast at
low speed with a heavy-duty electric
mixer until combined.
Bring 2 cups water to boil over
medium heat; add honey and butter,
stirring until butter melts. Remove
from heat, stir in 1 cup cold water.
(mixture will register 1200.)
Add honey mixture to flour mix-
ture, beating at low speed 1 minute.
Increase speed to medium and beat
2 more minutes. Gradually add re-
maining flour mixture and enough
unbleached all-purpose flour to make
a soft dough.
Turn dough out onto a well-floured
surface, and knead until smooth and
elastic (about 5 minutes). Place in a
well-greased bowl, turning to grease
top.
Cover and let rise in a % arm place
free from drafts. 45minuies or until
double in bulk.
Punch dough down,, and divide
into 2 equal portions. Roll each por-
tion into a 15x10 inch rectangle. Roll
each .up jellyroll fashion, beginning
with short end. Fold ends under and
place pach loaf in' a 9x5 inch loaf
pan.
Cover and let rise in a warm place
free from drafts for 45 minutes until
double in bulk.
Bake at 375 for 40 to 45 minutes,
shielding with aluminum foil after 25
minutes to prevent too much brown-
ing.

ADDITIONAL HOMESTEAD
EXEMPTION FOR
PERSONS 65 AND OLDER
For 2008, Gilchrist County residents 65 and
older who meet an income limitation may be
eligible for an additional $25,000
homestead exemption on property which
they havethe legal and equitable title to and
maintain thereon their permanent
residence. For 2009, the income limitation
was $25,873. In order to be considered, a
sworn statement of adjusted gross income
of household,must be filed with the property
appraiser's office during-the filing period of
January 1 March 1.


PROPERTY TAX DISCOUNT FOR
VETERANS AGE 65 AND OLDER WITH COMBAT RELATED
DISABILITY
.Each veteran who is age 65 or older who is partially or totally permanently disabled shall
receive a discount from the ad valorem tax otherwise owed on homestead property the
veteran owns and resides in if the disability was combat related, the veteran wasa resident
ofthisstate atthe time of entering the military service of the United States, and the veteran
was honorably discharged upon separation from military service. The discount shall be in
a percentage equal to the percentage of the veteran's permanent, service-connected
disability as determined bythe United States Department of Veterans Affairs. To qualify for
the discount granted by this subsection, an applicant must submit to the county property
appraiser, by March 1, proof of residency at the time of entering military service, an
official letter from the United States Department of Veterans Affairs'stating the percentage
of the veteran's service-connected disability and such evidence that reasonably identifies
the disability as combat related, and a copy of the veteran's honorable discharge.


TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY
Tangible Personal Property returns must be filed no
later than April 1st. Failure to file a return will result in
a penalty and an assessment will be made as
provided by Florida Law. Tangible Personal Property
includes property such as business furniture and
fixtures, machinery and equipment, household goods,
and personal effects. (Florida residents are exempt
from thetax on household goods and personal effects
in-their homestead.) The deadline for charitable and
qualified non-profit organizations eligible as such
exemption is March 1st. All others must file by April
1st.


Additional Homestead Exemption
How does the "double homestead" work?
The existing homestead exemption typically reduces the assessed value
of a property used as a primary residence by a 'Florida resident by
$25,000. This would provide an additional homestead exemption up to
$25,000, on the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000.

For example, if your assessment is $65,000, the first $25,000 and that
portion above $50,000 ($15,000) would be exempt, making your taxable
value $25,000 (65,000-25,000-15,000). Prior to new law, the taxable
value would have been $40,000 (65,000-25,000).

This additional homestead exemption does NOT reduce the assessed
value upon which school taxes are based. Also, it does not reduce or
otherwise affect the "Save Our Homes" deduction or any other exemp-
tions. It is not necessary to file for this additional exemption if you, have
the Homestead Exemption already.


AGRICULTURAL

FILINGS

All owners or lessees of agricultural
lands who desire agricultural
classifications for tax purposes on
their property must file an agricultural
application with the Appraiser
between January 1 and March 1.
Agricultural classification are

TRANSFERABLE -- A NEW
APPLICATION MUST BE FILED FOR
ANY CHANGES
Information will be required from all persons applying for exemptions to
determine their residency status. If Husband or Wife is filing for one or
both. residency documentation will be required for both.
We are at your service and will be most happy
to assist you in any way.

Would you be my buddy?


Dakota Sherlock reads a book about crabs to her buddy JoAnn Krein-


bihl.
Reading Buddy thatis. Third Grad-
ers in Mrs. Wright's room at Bell El-
ementary School work hard every
week to earn the opportunity to be a
Reading Buddy for an equally hard-
working Kindergartner in Mrs. Lind-
sey's class. To earn this opportunity,
Mrs. Wright's and Mrs. Lindsey's
students must complete all home-
work and class work for the week and
follow classroom rules. The Buddies
chosen get to spend half an hour Fri-
day reading with their new friend.
The teachers got the idea from a
school-wide buddy reading day held
in the beginning of January. At the
first event, each grade was paired


with the grade 2 years below them.
All involved found the event to be re-
warding and beneficial. With the new
Reading Buddy program, the excite-
ment continues.
"I like reading to little kids," says
third grader Dakota Sherlock.
As for her "Buddy" JoAnn Krein-
bihl, "I like them reading to us."
All in all, everyone seemed to en-
joy the inaugural Friday of Reading
Buddy time. With all the learning
going on perhaps the most telling
response to the question of why they
like to be buddy readers was when
third grader Dylan Sykes said simply,
"It's FUN!"

Hannah McRoberts, Sarah Bus-
sard, and Caleb Harris of Trenton
have been honored for their exem-
plary volunteer service with a Presi-
dent's Volunteer Service Award. The
award, which recognizes Americans
of all ages who have volunteered
significant amounts of their time
to serve their communities and the
country, was presented by The Pru-
dential Spirit of Community Awards
program on behalf of the President's
Council on Service and Civic Partici-
pation.
Hannah McRoberts has earned her
award by volunteering to promote
peace and understanding within the
community. She has been a teach-
er, tutor, and mentor to other young
people. She is currently working
on a project to educate people in the
community about what is available to
them to help save our planet. When
asked about her community volun-
teerism, Hannah says "I would en-

that there are many ways to give back
to my community. I know that I have
set a good example."
Sarah Bussard was chosen for the
award by playing a leadership role
in activities within her school. She
has enhanced her school resources
by assisting the basketball teams at
Trenton High School. She has spent
numerous hours handling money,
scheduling concessions stand work-
ers, taking care of customers, and
cleaning before and after games. Sar-
ah comments, "Due to Trenton High
School being a small rural school,
there often aren't a lot of funds avail-
able for sports teams. I would like
to tell other young people about my
experiences and that serving others is
worthwhile."
Caleb Harris earned his award by
donating many hours of his time, par-
ticipating in a mission trip to Juarez,
Mexico. Caleb was part of a mis-
sion team that helped to renovate an
orphanage. He worked countless
hours from sealing the outside walls
to cleaning paint off concrete floors,
impacting the lives of staff and chil-
dren living in the orphanage. When
describing his experiences, Caleb
says "In the Bible, it states that we
should reach out to the ends of the
earth to help God's people and that's
exactly what we did. This was one of
the best experiences of my life."
Sponsored by Prudential Finan-
cial in partnership with the National
Association of Secondary School
Principals, The Prudential Spirit of
Community Awards program recog-
nizes young people across America
for outstanding community service
activities. More than 250,000 young
people across America have been
considered for these awards since the
program began in 1995.

What fun these Joyful Hearts had at the state fair. Front row, left to
right: Jackie and Elaine. Back row, left to right: Linda, Ruth, Betty,
Diana, and Pat.


We're back and we're doing fine
and keeping quite busy.
There are always about 20, 'more or
less, at our meetings and everyone is
working on a pet project or one of our
quilts on the frames.
Our February 11 meeting was
our valentine chili party and a good
time was had by all. We pigged out
on steaming bowls of chili, hot dogs
with all the trimmings, and trays of
yummy desserts and yes, chocolates.
Ruth Wilkerson has knitted another
22 hats and nearly as many blankets
for the tiny babies at North Florida
Regional. What a blessing she is to so
many. Our "Whale of a Quilt," made
for the Branford Women's Club raffle
has been finished and raffled off. The
proceeds are to be used for' a badly
needed paint job.
Our "Friendship Garden" quilt
is just about ready to come off the
frame and be completed. The rooster
"Sometin' to Crow About," quilt is
well underway. All the blocks are


in and we've decided what one goes
where and it will be sometin' to crow
about when finished. Our next group
quilt will be blocks of one's own
unique Christmas tree...can't wait to
see what everyone comes up with.' ,
The state fair has come and gone,
and we came home with 6 ribbons.
Congratulations to one and all who
entered. You know there are no losers
really. Every piece is made with love
and care and a part of the makers.
I hope I get all this information
correct so here goes. Myrle Gilkey

C EC Notice To Members


Central Florida Electric Cooperative, Inc. (CFEC) will undergo a rate change effec-
tiveApril 1, 2009, with a 5.27 percent increase to the total rate. As a result of the rate in-
crease, fees for some services will also increase, and in the near future, a late fee will be
imposed on delinquent accounts.
The rate increase is necessary to provide members with reliable electric service at the
lowest possible cost. The need for a rate increase is to, cover additional costs for electricity,
plus the costs of materials, labor, benefits and other operating costs.
A rate study, conducted by an independent energy economics consulting group, deter-
mined that CFEC needed a rate increase in order to stay above acceptable margins as al-
lowed by the Rural Utilities Service and to meet its financial obligations.
As part of the rate increase, the cooperative will soon include a late fee of $5 or five per-
cent, whichever is higher, of the total owed to the cooperative on delinquent accounts. The
late fee is necessary to cover the costs incurred from dealing with accounts that are not paid
on a timely basis.
To lessen the impact of the rate change, let CFEC conduct an energy audit of your home
and give you practical ideas for conserving energy. Also, avoid the late charge by paying on
time.
For more information on the rate change and for ways to start conserving energy, visit
our Web) site at www.cfec.com.

Gilchrist County Woman's Club News


What a historic year this is in the
life of our nation, and you can be a
part of the excitement with a trip to
Washington, D.C., thanks to your
local electric cooperative.
Central Florida Electric
Cooperative is sponsoring two high
school students from the service area
to attend the Electric Cooperative
Youth Tour, June 13-18, 2009, in
Washington, D.C.
As part of a fully chaperoned trip
with high school students from all
over the state, studefits will learn
about the political process and see,
firsthand, how government works.
They will be able to meet with Sena-
tors and/or Representatives, visit
many historic landmarks and gain a
personal understanding of American
history, the political process and their
role in that process.
Students will increase their
leadership skills and network
with other goal-oriented students.
Being selected for the trip is a reward
for their academic achievements and
concern for community.
To be eligible, students must be a
junior in high school and be the child
or legal dependent of an active CFEC
member living in the cooperative's
service area.
Applications are available from
high school guidance counselors, at
the main office of CFEC and on the
CFEC website at Www.cfec.com.
The deadline for applications is
March 6, 2009, and the selection
process will conclude, by April 30,
2009.,
For more information, go to www..
cfec.com.


help to "man" this event.
A special thank you to Paul and
Stephanie Metts, for putting Trenton
on the map.
The chamber and the city, working
in tandem, will make this year even
bigger and better, so let's be pro-ac-
tive people!
As we move into April, we are plan-
.ning to host our yearly dinner where
tickets are to be sold in advance. Ten-
tatively, we have picked Friday, April
3, for it to be held at the clubhouse.
Menu and prices will be determined
once the Finance Committee put their
heads together. We know that times
are tough, so we want it to be priced
reasonably, yet also exceptional to
the palate.
We will also be having the Mother
and Daughter dinner meeting to be
held on Thursday, April 9, where we
invite all the graduating senior young
women and their proud mothers to
accompany them. Bridgit Richardson
is already collecting toiletries and
make-up bags from our ladies to give
to those students.
Also, on Friday, April 17, we will
be a part of the Beast Feast of Gil-
christ County, so we ladies need to

Central Florida


be ready to bake lots of desserts to
serve after that delicious meal at Su-
zie DeChamplain's farm off CR 307.
If you haven't been there yet, you're
missing something spectacular.
All the proceeds go to our county
educational foundation for local
scholarships to all our college-bound
kids. So, help us out, please!
Needless to say, we're projecting a
busy couple of months ahead. So get
with your committee heads and see
what you can do to aid any of these
worth-while events.
Our next monthly meeting will be
at the clubhouse on Thursday, March
12, at 7 p.m. Cindy Slaughter and her
finance committee will be providing
the St. Patty's treats. They are invit-
ing all the ladies that work with Gil-
christ County Sheriff's Department
to attend. We always welcome new
faces to come join us.
Baked goods are still needed for
the 4-Pet's Sake Golf Tournament
Benefit. Please drop them by my of-
fice on Friday afternoon, March 6,
for the Saturday March 7 event in
Chiefland.
