Seminole Electric requests land use change for 510 acres


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
was informed by Taylor Brown. Gil-
christ County planner, that Seminole
Electric is seeking a land use change,
for property east of Bell.
The Gilchrist County Planning


Commission heard the request for a
land tUse change from Seminole Elec-
tric in their January 2009 meeting.
The electric cooperative is seeking
a change from A-2 to Public Use on a
reported 510-acre parcel east of Bell.

House Bill could mean

Clerk of Court would


lose half his
.By Carrie A. Mizell
The news just continues to get
worse for Gilchrist County Clerk of
Court Joe Gilliam. who is currently
facing a dramatic budget cut along
with a house bill that if passed could
cut his office's responsibilities.
On Monday the Clerk's operating
budget was cut by nearly 32 percent
for the remainder of the 2008-09
fiscal year. Such action was taken
because the Clerk's Office is 30.67
percent below what was predicted in
revenue for this year.
According to Gilliam cost saving
measures already taken within his of-
fice include the 18 full-time employ-
ees voluntarily cutting their hours,
elimination of a contract of services
with an on-call attorney, no cell
phones except for the on-call clerk on
the weekends, no overtime. no travel.
and no continuing education classes
'"If we can just get b) paying sala-
ries until the end of the year, I'll be
tickled," Gilliam said. "And next year
will be just as bad, if not worse."
The news of the budget cut comes
as Gilliam and court ;clerks from
throughout the state brace for the out-
come of a vote by the Florida Leg-
islature on House Bill 1121. which
would essentially transfer nearly all
the responsibilities of the clerk's of-
fice to the state court system.
If passed as it is currently written.
Gilliam said the bill would mean that
he would lose close to half his office.
At least 9 full-time employees would
e lose their jobs, and his responsibili-
s ties would be limited to his role as
,f budget officer for Gilchrist County
. and keeper of all official records.
d "'My position was established iby
- the Constitution so it would still be'
n here, but my duties and responsibili-
ties as Clerk ,are determined by the

Joe Gilliam
Gilchrist County Clerk of Court
the circuit and county courts were es-
tablished in the state Constitution as
independently elected constitutional
officers to maintain a vital check and
balance within the judicial branch
and within county government
Unlike the court system, the court
clerks receive no funding through
state appropriations, and are in fact
constitutionally mandated to be self-
supporting. Their court-related op-
erations are funded through revenues
from fines, fees, filing fees, service
charges and court costs collected on
-the court side.
Proponents of the bill feel that once
passed. the bill will "bring appropri-
ate, efficiencies to the administration
of justice." .
The bill also calls for a thorough
review to be conducted to analyze
the business processes by which the
court clerks provide court-related
services. A state representative from
Collier County, Ellyn Bogdanoff.
sponsored House Bill 1121. Bogda-
-noff maintains that the bill will, "in
'a time of curtailed state resources,
further eliminate bureaucracy and the
duplication of effort by providing ad-


6 BHS studc
Submitted
Gilchrist County Emergency Man-
agement is proud to announce the
'graduation on March 10 of the High
School "JROTC" C6mmnunity Emer-
gency Response Team.
This is the fourth C.E.R7T gradu-
ation in the county ,and the second,
class from the JROTC since the start
of the program.
The graduating class consists of
representatives of the high school
community from the JROTC and
Health Academy departments.
Robert Chaney, Schiefer Buckles,
.Matthew Sullivan, Denise Sandvik,
Valarie Hilliard, and Paul Tousig-
nant have completed an eleven-week
course of training consisting of first
aid, search and rescue, CPR, fire sup-
pression, hazardous materials aware-
ness, psychology and terrorism.
These learned skills will be helpful in
a response and recovery effort in our
county if we encounter a disaster.
One of our graduates from the first
JROTC class had a first-hand expe-
rience recently. While at home in
February, Kerry Scroggins witnessed
a member of his family choking. Re-
lying on his training from the CPR
(Coronary Pulmonary Resuscitation)
Training, he was able to dislodge the'
foreign substance with the "Heim-
lich" maneuver. Kerry said "My
CERT training allowed me to help."
That family member credits his life
to Kerry's fast and effective applica-
tion. Well done Kerry!
Gilchrist County Emergency Man-
agement is preparing to start an adult
class within the next 90 days. Appli-
cations (Limited to 15) are being ac-
cepted at the Gilchrist County Emer-
gency Operations Center in Bell, or


mended approval of the request to the
Gilchrist County Commission.
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion will hear from Seminole Electric
representatives April 20 in a public
meeting ..
At this time Seminole Electric is


considering an electric generation
facility to be constructed on the prop-
erty in Gilchrist County. The compa-
ny is' still researching which type, of
electrical generation facility the new/
plant will be.
At this time Seminole Electric leads


the state of Florida in renewable elec-
tric generation which involves solar
energy and other types of electric
service. The Tampa-based coopera-
tive is one of the largest generation
and transmission cooperatives in the
U.S.


Quilt Show draws thousands to Trenton

Organizers of the 2nd Annual Suwannee Valley Quilt and Old Time Craft Festival estimate that several
thousand residents of Gilchrist County, and visitors from as far away as Germany, visited Trenton on Sat-
urday to stroll down A lain Street and admire quilts. The Quilt Show also featured live entertainment, lo-
cal food vendors, craft booths and Civil War re-enactors. Stitchin' Sisters, a quill group from Interlachen,
displayed their quilts in front of the Gilchrist County Commissioners Meeting Hall.


ditional legislative and judicial over-
sight of the provision of court-related
services."
As for the duplication of effort,
Gilliam said he cannot find one ser-
vice that is duplicated by both the
court system, and the court clerk at
this time. .
SIf passed, the bill would designate
up to five judicial circuits in which
cburt-related services currently im-
posed by the clerk's office would be
transferred to the state court system.
Each fiscal year, five additional dis-
tricts would see their clerks' services
transferred.


Howard Babb, Jr., president of the
Florida Public Defender Association,
Inc., has released a statement saying
that the public defenders do not sup-
port the transfer of the clerks' func-
tions to the state courts. The Florida
Prosecuting Attorneys Association,
composed of the 20 state attorneys
of Florida, also feels that it would
be "ill-advised" to move any of the
Clerks' responsibilities to the courts.
At press time, the Journal received
word that the Supreme Court had
filed SB 2108, a strike-all amend-
ment, which would remove the ma-
jor controversial provisions of House


Bill 1121 that deal with the clerks of
court. The amendment would remove
all of the provisions that redirected
fees from the clerks' budgets to 'the
state courts' budget. The amendment
also removes from the bill the pro-
visions that would have transferred
.various clerk functions to the courts.
The amendment also calls for a study
to be conducted by an independent
and impartial state office to determine
if cost savings could be generated by
transferring to the courts some of the
record-keeping and other court-re-
lated duties currently performed by
the clerks.

Spring Ridge Fire Department

reimburses the county for


grill expense
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
heard from Don Alexander, -hief
of Spring Ridge, Station 3 Gilchrist
Couflty Fire ,Rescue, during their
meeting Monday afternoon.
The chief presented each of the
county commissioners information
involving the financial records of
Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment. He explained to the board that
the department has always been in
the fund raising business.
"We did this to build the fire sta-
tion, which saved the county thou-
sands of dollars," Alexander said.
"The department also added an ad-
dition to keep the 5,000-gallon tank
truck and engine out of the weather.
The tank truck was built by volun-
teers from the Spring Ridge Depart-
ment with the assistance of Qilchrist
County providing $6,000."
The Spring Ridge Fire Department
holds pancake breakfasts each month
in the fire station that is leased to Gil-
christ County to raise revenue to use
for fire department needs as well as
providing assistance to people when
emergencies occur like drought and
floods.
Chief Alexander explained the sta-
tion's biggest accomplishment is the
support given to the Children's Mira-
cle Network, over $6,900 donated in
the last three years. This.is among the
many donations that the volunteers in
Spring Ridge give to people .in need
annually.
Chief Alexander explained to the
commission that a check for $120 for
the grill has been given back to the
county and that the electrical service
was done by volunteer individuals
from Spring Ridge at no cost to the
county.
The chief gave a list of the revenue
that identifies the operating expenses
and the fund raising expenses that:
Spring Ridge has done from 2006.
to 2008. The Spring Ridge Volun-


teer Fire Department expenses to-
taled $198,024.36, which took into
consideration a fire service grant of
$171,713.00 which purchased a fire
engine in 2006. The expenditures
for the fire department savings to the
county of $26,311.36 for the three
years average out to $8,770.45 per-
year.
Each of the commissioners thanked
Chief Alexander for Spring Ridge
Volunteer Fire Department and the
outstanding job that they do for Gil-
christ County'each day.

By Geneva Cornwell
In life,' unfortunately, being hurt
by someone is viturally inevitable.
Thus, resolving offenses is the key
to maintaining any relationship. So
by forgiving, one clears the record of
those who have committed a wrong
so as not to hold a grudge against
them. Forgiveness is the essence of
being quick to not cover up one's
own wrongs, but being quick to ask
for forgiveness and never seeking
revenge, while responding kindly to
those who cause a hurt and not take-
up offenses for others.
True forgiveness begins by releas-
ing any personal attitudes and look-
ing for ways to invest time, energy,
and thoughtfulness in the offender's
life. It does not ignore wrongdoing
but rather acknowledges wrong and
purposes to overcome with good.
Forgiveness protects emotional state
and encourages offenders to cease
their offensive behavior.
It is out of a need for forgiveness
that a person is able to forgive others.
Those who suppose that ,they do not
need forgiveness tend to be rigid and
'critical of others. Forgiveness comes
from the Old English word forgifan,
meaning "to pardon." As the word
forgive implies, to forgive requires
that a person "give for" the sake of


New 4-H club debuts,


Bell 4-H Woodturninq Club


Some Gilchrist County 4-H youth
have a new hobby after learning from
members of the Bell Woodturners
how to use a wood lathe last Saturday
at the Bell clubhouse.
About six months ago Mr. Charles
Watson approached Gilchrist County
4-H Agent Chris DeCubellis about
starting a 4-H woodturning club.
Members of the Bell Woodturners had
a desire to pass their art on to a new
generation of enthusiasts. This has
led to the county's newest 4-H Club,
the Bell 4-H Woodtuming Club, to
have its first meeting. This is a brand
new 4-H club and there is still plenty
of room for interested young people
ages 11-18 to join.
Woodtuming is a type of wood
work where a lathe spins pieces of
wood and then the craftsperson uses
.a variety of tools to shape the wood
into various objects; such as candle-
sticks, table legs, or bowls.
At the first meeting, the 4-H mem-
bers learned about the parts of a
lathe, shop/lathe safety, how to find
the center of a piece of lumber, and
the youth, got to make their own
honey dippers. Mr. Gary Taylor of
the Bell Woodturners told the kids
that woodturning is the only hobby
where you can start out with a piece
of firewood and turn it into a work

others.
This month, the personality be-
ing highlighted is truly one "who has
chosen to forgive, and thus has been
a blessed person because of it. Mr.
Jessie Lee, husband, father,'grandfa-
ther, and genuine friend to so many
believes that "if a person occupies
their life with unforgiveness. life has
a way of standing still, for unforgive-
ness allows no productivity.
There was a great chasm built for
Mr. Lee when at the age of 25, with a
budding career ahead of him, he was
caught between two conflicts and two
differentbosses. He made the decision
that "life is too short," so he-turned in
his resignation and shortly thereafter,
found himself drafted into the Army

of art; the good thing is if you mess
up your project you can always turn
it back into a piece of firewood and
start over.
Fortunately for the 4-H'ers, none
of their blocks of cherry wood had,
to go in the fireplace; they were able
to successfully turn them into honey

and headed to Korea. He felt he had
lost everything and blamed the Army.
However, his military experiences
turned things around, and due to his
purposing to- forgive, .he was given
a different, and long-lasting career.
Through that vocation Lee was able
to become a positive witness to oth-
ers. He spent thirty years on the Uni-
versity of Florida Police Department
and another ten -years, working with
the Alachua General Hospital Secu-
rity. All of this was because of the
character trait of forgiveness.
Jessie Lee was born, raised and
went to school in .Branford, Flori-
da, but he lived in Gainesville for
thirty years. After retiring, he came
to Gilchrist County for the sake of
his wife Mary Ann, and the fact that,
they wanted to be near her aging par-
ents. While in high school, Lee was
very active in the FFA and learned
much regarding citizenship. He feels
that the basic premise'in life is that
"scholarship plus citizenship will get
things done." He has spent the last
forty years as a Gideon. Lee's advice
for those who are struggling with un-


dippers!
Any interested young people are._
encouraged to come to the next meet-
ing on April 4. Call 463-3174 to sign
up. Of course, any young person in,
Gilchrist County aged 5-18 is encour-,
aged to join a local 4-H club. Call
463-3174 for more information.

forgiveness is: "Don't harbor unfor-
giveness, for unforgiveness does not
allow for an open mind or discourse '
with anyone. Use Proverbs 3:5 and
6 as your guide: 'Trust in the Lord
with all thine heart; and lean not unto
thine understanding. In all thy ways
acknowledge Him, and He shall di-
rect thy path.'"
Once again, we see the importance
of what living out a moral character'
trait can do in one's -life. It makes
for wonderful changes which spring
forth with blessings, as well as last-'
ing friendships.

Eighteen Years To Live
. .(KentHeaton)


The period of a man's life is summed up by our Creator
as merely a vapor that appears for a short time and then
vanishes away '(James 4:14). The greatest challenge we
face is the reality of our mortality and the brevity of that
transient journey called life. It is hard to conceive that life
can be so short when all around us is full of life and
vitality. Yet the numbering of our days is suggested by the
psalmisi Moses in his prayer to God. "For all our days
have declined in Your fury; we have finished our years
like a sigh. As for the days of our life, they contain
seventy years, or if due to strength, eighty years, yet their
pride is but labor and sorrow; for soon it is gone and we
fly away. Who understands the power of Your anger and
Your fury, according to the fear that is'due You? So
teach us to number our days, that we may present to You
a heart of wisdom" (Psalms 90:9-1'2).
Moses does not suggest that all men will live to be
seventy but the fullness of life is measured by a span of
time for man but only a glimpse of eternity from the view
of Heaven. He lived to be 120 years of age and "his eye
was not dim, nor his vigor abated" (Deuteronomy 34:7).
Our lives are nothing more than a sigh and soon passed
away. The lesson is for all of us to number our days and
receive wisdom from our mortality.
Viewing this passage from my own life I realize that
Lord willing I have a span of eighteen years and if by
strength, twenty eight years. Added to this knowledge is
the clear reality that my death can come today at any
moment. The lesson from Moses is not about the numbers
*but about the numbering. Wisdom helps us see through the
ye of faith that life for the child of God must be viewed
in light of eternity. Our lives are not measured by the

marching of time but the time we march into that great
city, the holy Jerusalem (Revelation 21:10-27)..
Facing death is what we all share and our understanding
of that determines our outlook of life. Some are fully
aware of their death as disease has crippled them and left
little time for their lives to continue. I cannot grasp the
measure of faith that men like Phil Roberts had in facing
death nror of the faith of Gary Ogden who now faces his
mortality. Countless children of God have stood at the door
of death and viewed it not with fear but with the longing
faith of one who wants to go home to the Father.
Luke describes the death of Stephen as "falling asleep"
(Acts 7:60) as Stephen was being murdered by a mob
stoning him with stones. The horrible nature of death
confuses our minds with the reality of. death for the
Christian. When Stephen was dying it was a terrible way to
die; but' he knew that in a moment of time his pain would
cease and his life would be transformed from the earthly
house to a "house not made with hands, eternal in the
heavens" (2 Corinthians 5:1-9).
Teach us to number our days and know the power of
God that rests upon our lives now and especially the power
of God that awaits us to carry us by angels to the bosom of
Abraham (Luke 16:22). "He will wipe away every tear
from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death;
there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain;
the first things have passed away. And He who sits on the
throne said, 'Behold, I am making all things new.' And
He said, 'Write, for these words are faithful and true'"
(Revelation 21:4-5). May God grant us the eye of faith to
see clearly the eternal home promised before time began
(Titus 1:2; Hebrews 11:16).

While trying to come up with an
idea for supper that would not keep
me in the kitchen a long time I came
across a recipe for baked chicken and
yellow rice.
All right, something I can put in the
oven and come back to later. Speak-
ing of yellow rice, the late Evelyn
Grandoff made wonderful yellow
rice. Evelyn grew up in Judson which
is located down past the Gilchrist
County Jail on Hwy. 339 just over
the Levy County line. She married
Tony Grandoff, and they lived in the
Tampa area for many years. They sort
of retired and came back to Judson to
spend their final years.
Although they are both gone now,
the Grandoffs made an impact for
gopd in Gilchrist County that has
out-lasted them both.
Most people who have moved here
in the past ten years or so don't know
that the Grandoffs started Tri-Coun-
ty Bank, which has since been pur-
chased by Ameris Bank. But the most
felt impact may very well have been
Tri-County Nursing Home.
For several years Mr. Grandoff
fought valiantly to bring a hospital
.to our area. He even went so far as
proceeding with construction of a
building near Fanning Springs. But
due to some fancy footwork and lob-
bying from the big Gainesville hos-
pitals, Mr. Grandoff was never given
permission from the state to open the
hospital. So in the end he turned the
facility into a nursing home, which
has given employment to a large staff
and benefited the many families who
have placed loved ones in their care.
Mr. Grandoff was a very active'
member of the Rotary Club, and Mrs.


Grandoff was a member of the Tren-
ton Woman's Club, now known as
the Gilchrist County, Woman's Club.
To this day, I never make yellow rice
that I don't, think of Mrs. Grandoff.
In my mind's eye I can still see a
large platter with a mound of'golden
yellow rice and chicken with a sprin-
kling of English peas across the top.
The following recipe is nice be-
cause you can put it in the oven for
45 minutes or so and go do something
else....like let's see, what should it
be? Play in the flower bed or quilt?

wO eca 6XicA enw and

2 1/2 lb. chicken
5 cups water
1 medium onion chopped
1/2 cup green (Bell) pepper, chopped
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon.black pepper
1 clove garlic, minced
2 cups rice
1 teaspoon Vigo or Spanish season-
ing for yellow rice
Cook chicken in water with salt;.
take off bones. Saute pepper, garlic,
celery and onion in 2 tablespoons oil
(olive oil if you have it) until tender.
Add rice and cook until lightly gold-
en. Put rice, chicken and seasonings
in a baking pan or casserole dish with
four cups chicken broth. Salt to taste.
Blend well. Cover with foil or lid and
bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes
or until rice is tender. Chicken will
come to the top of the rice. Serves 8.
Note: When testing recipe Uncle
Ben's Rice was used.

day and then get together in the eve-
ning for a time of equipping the body
of Christ. This year's speaker will be,
Zeb Cook. Zeb is 27 years old, and
is the pastor of Old Providence Bap-
tist Church in Lake Butler. One of his
passions is to "see teenagers authen-
tically connect with Christ." Zeb will
be speaking each night at 7 p.m.
One of the highlights of the week
has been the Wednesday night con-
cert at Fanning Springs State Park.
This year once again, contemporary
Christian recording artist Carl Car-
tee will bring an open air concert at
the park. Carl is an amazing wor-
'ship leader whose love of the Lord
flows through his music. The concert
:has always provided a relaxed at-
,mosphere that promotes community

There is a story of a couple that
approached their 50th wedding
anniversary. To celebrate, the wife
prepared her husband's favorite meal
and wore her new dress to look just
right. With all the preparations in
place, over dinner she asked her
husband for a special gift in return:
"Honey, since it is our anniversary, I
would like to hear you say that you
love me." To which her husband
replied, "I told you fifty years ago
that I loved you... if I change my
mind, I'll let you know."
* Do you ever feel taken for grant-
ed? 'Unappreciated? On the flip
side, are you intentional about let-
ting others know that you appreciate
them? Why are we so quick to praise
sports heroes or celebrities for their
accomplishments, while assuming
that those most important to us know
that we are grateful for all they add
to our lives? The dictionary defines
"assumption" as a fact or statement
taken for granted; an assuming that
something is true. In our relation-
ships, assuming that others know
they are loved and appreciated can
do some real damage.


The Bible is clear regarding this
matter of taking others for granted.
In Romans 12:10, the apostle Paul
writes, "Honor one another above
yourselves."
The word "honor," indicates one
whose worth brings respect or fame;
a person of superior standing. Who
takes the time to honor a mother or
wife for the daily responsibilities she
fulfills day after day? How about that
husband who shows up each day for a
job he doesn't really enjoy or spends
time with the kids:..or the child who
studies hard to make a good grade
or helps out without being asked?
Most often, the only cheering sec-
tion for our family is ourselves, and
it can be pretty tough to feel valued
or motivated to stay the course when
.no one seems to notice. There is no
better place to apply this verse than in
our own homes, where the worth of
those we love should give them supe-
rior standing. Let's. appreciate them
especially in the day in and day out
routine of our lives...because their
hearts matter!
Blessings,
Angie

Tigers gain ground in district play! '-


By Brandon McElroy
As rivalry week kicked off, the
first team the Tigers faced was the
St. Francis Wolves. This was the first
meeting between the two teams since
the preseason tournament when the
Tigers prevailed over the Wolves 12-
2. The second meeting would be no
different...
Fired up, the Tigers struck first,
putting the Wolves at a 2 run deficit
early in the game. The Tigers fought
hard and were determined not to be
shown up by the Tiger pups, who
ended their match in 5 innings. Due to
the great pitching of Caleb Smith and
CJ Bowers, the Tigers' defense was
able to hold the Wolves to a lowly 1
run and 4 hits. Offensively, the Tigers
took advantage of every opportunity
the Wolves gave them. Capitaliz-
ing on their errors, scoring left and


right! Chance Brooks, Cody Hardy,
and Karso'n Gilbert all went .500 on
the night while Caleb Smith, and Jus-
tin Alvarez both went 2 for 3. Ryan
Schmitz was perfect on the night in-
cluding a double, a sacrifice fly-out,
and 2 RBI's. The Tigers really put it
on the Wolves this time around with
the final score, your Trenton Tigers
13 and the St. Francis Wolves 1.
As the hard throwing Junior Trey
Smith took the mound for Thursday
night's matchup, everyone knew they
were in for a good game. Smith threw
all 5 innings and only allowed 2 hits!
Smith leaned back on his defense
and together they were able to hold
the Hornets to no runs. With 6 strike-
outs and only 2 walks, Smith threw
one of the more complete games he.
has thrown thus far into the season.
Having the defense synchronized, the

offense came together quite nicely as
well. Clif Bryant, an 8th grader play-
ing his first game under the lights, got
the call up and played a heck of a ball
game designated hitting for left field-
er Tyler. Brown. Bryant went a fabu-
lous 2 for 3 with 2 RBI's. CJ Bowers
also had another great night hitting 2
for 3. The Tigers were able to spread
around the hits and everybody on
the starting lineup got on base with a
single or better! The Tigers scored 10
runs off 10 hits hammering the nail in
the coffin of the Hornets, bulldozing
any pride they possessed, winning in
5 innings with the final score your
Trenton Tigers 10 and the Hawthorne
Hornets 0!
After a great week of baseball, the
challenge of going undefeated for the
week crept up on the Tigers and al-
most bit them in the butt. In Friday
night's.,game against the Bell Bull-
dogs the Tigers had to overcome it
all! With the combination of lights
not being turned on, to an umpire
with an inconsistent strike zone, the
Tigers managed to escape victorious.
Although the Tigers were not beat
physically, they let the bush league
tactics of the Bulldogs drain them
mentally. It was tit-for-tat and back
and forth until the 5th inning when
the Tigers slowly but surely started
to pull away. After CJ Bowers's back.
to back homeruns in the 3rd and 4th
innings, the Bulldogs basically lay,
down and stopped fighting! Even
though the dogs stopped biting, the
Tigers never ceased their scoring. Af-
ter being held scoreless for the first
two innings, the Tigers scored in ev-
ery inning following in order to en-
sure their win over the cross-county
rivals. Chance Brooks sucked every
last bit of life out of the Bulldogs
with his leadoff solo homerun in the
6th inning and from there on out, it
was no contest. Once again, the 8th
grader, Clif Bryant. played a vital
role in. this victory as he went 2 for 3
with one RBI! The Tigers finally held

TES Pre-K Program


It is so exciting to see children ex-
cited about learning.. These children
are in the Pre-Kindergarten Program
at Trenton Elementary. They are all
very happy because they have been
visiting the principal and assistant
principal on a regular basis to dem-
onstrate their reading skills. These
children are reading books to every-
one. We are so proud of our Pre-Kin-


dergarten Students. They are learning
so much and they are so happy and
excited aboutt what they are learning.
Our Pre-K teachers work so hard to
have' their children ready for Kinder-
garten. It is amazing to see all the
information and data that the teach-
ers have on every student. Their goal
is to know exactly what each child's
needs are and to meet those needs in


the best way for the child.
Keep up the good work, Pre-
teachers and students.

Bell Elementary Celebrates


Dr. Seuss Day
Would you read 'ith a tfo\ in a
box" Would you read ,ith a goat on
a boat? Last Friday. Bell Elementrn
School celebrated 1Dr Seuss Day. The
day's events.included buddy read-
ing, special library activities, and a
school-wide call to wear mismatched
socks.
After a morning of reading with
buddies from different grades, kin-
dergartners settled in for a Cat in the
.5th and'the 7th, but by that time, the
game had already been sealed. The
Tiger pups won the first matchup of
the season against the cross-county
rival Bell Bulldogs with the final
score, your Tiger pups 11 and the
Bell Bulldogs 4.
Offensively,, the Tiger pups are
really starting to come on strong
drawing walks, hitting base hits, and
getting on base any way possible.
Already the Tiger pups pitching and

famed author Dr. Seuss and his work.
Bell Elementary would like to thank
them for a job well done.
defensive routine plays have shown
major improvement since the first
game of the season. This group is a
promising one if they stick together
and work like they should. Remem-
ber, this team is made up of mostly
8th and 9th graders. All the teams the
Tiger pups have demolished so far
have been 2 and even 3 years older
than them. Kudos to the coaches and
the players for working hard!

$2,989 raised at 4-Pets Sake Golf Tournament


By Renee D.
Purrfect!
That is one way to describe the ben-
efit golf tournament. As we watched
the golfers in their carts heading out
to the course, one of the volunteers
said "that's one heck of a parade."
We,.are so grateful to everyone in-
volved with the tournament, and the,
surprising number of golfers that
played was awesome.
At this time we are working on a
thank you list; however, if we should
'miss your name or business, please
accept our sincere apologies.
This golf tournament has been kind
to 4 Pets Sake, given the fact that we
are in a struggling economy. After all
the balls have been-hit, "andpeople
yelling 'fore,' the total revenue, is
$2989. ''
Big hugs to everyone! Just for the,
love of them. .
