Drunk driver sentenced

after hitting, killing


15-year-old
By Carrie A. Mizell
A Bell mother feels like the justice
system has let her down after the man
accused of hitting and killing her son
while he was riding a bicycle down
County Road 340 last August was
charged with only a misdemeanor.
Donald Wood, of High Springs,
incurred a misdemeanor charge of
DUI after a Florida Highway Patrol
investigator and an assistant state at-
torney deemed there was not enough
evidence to charge him with a felony
count of DUI Manslaughter in the
death of 15-year-old Kyle Ford.
Kyle's mother. Pam Ford, did not
agree with the charges brought against
Wood and was therefore not satisfied
last Monday when County Judge Ed
Philman sentenced Wood to 90 days
in the county jail: 60of those days can
be spent in a residential rehabilitation
facility: driver's license revoked for
one year: 12 months probation: and
100 hours of community service, of
%which 50 hours must be spent at a
cemetery in Gilchrist County.
At the time of the accident, which
occurred less than a mile east of NWI
15th Avenue. Wood tested positive
for DUI with a blood alcohol level
of 0.22 and 0.21. which is well over
the .08 percent blood alcohol content
that is considered illegal.
Apparently. Wood told Florida
Highway Patrol Investigator Cpl.
Rodney Howard at the scene of the
accident that Kyle pulled his bicycle
into the path of the minivan he was
driving. However, Kyle's mother
maintains that witnesses to the ac-
cident say Wood did not slow down
or swerve before hitting her son and
ejecting him from the bicycle he was
riding.
"He [Wood] was so intoxicated he
couldn't make sense of what was hap-
pening," Pam Ford said. "He [Wood]
said he saw both boys on their bicy-
cles, but yet he ne\ er slowed down or
swerved...How do you take the word
of a drunk man over witnesses?"
Kyle's mother said she talked to
Cpl. Howard three days after the ac-
cident, and he said Kyle was at fault,
which she said \%as before he even
started the investigation.
"There are just so many discrepan-
cies." Pam For d s "Wben I con-
tacted Assistant State Attorney An-
drea Muirheard and asked her if she
had looked at the pictures of Kyle's
bike that I sent her, or gone out to the
scene, she admitted that she hadn't,
which shows me that they didn't go
in depth to find answers."
Despite Pam Ford's belief that
, a thorough investigation was not
conducted, she gave a victim's im-
pact statement during sentencing
last week. along with the mother of'
Kyle's friend, Gage, w ho was riding
a bkiycle beside Kyle when the acci-
dent occurred
By his [Wood's] actions, I feel
like he committed murder. b. making
the decision to drink and drive." Pam
Ford said in the courtroom
The August accident was not
Wood's first DUI charge; prior to that
he was charged w ith DUI in 1979 and
has since had three or four speeding
tickets, a charge for driving with an


bicyclist


open container, a charge of reckless
driving, and seatbelt violations, Pam
Ford pointed out.
Kyle's classmates at Bell Middle-
High School will forever miss Klie.
who is remembered as a happy stu-
dent and friend, who enjoyed playing
basketball and dreamed of one day
being an archeologist.
In fact on the afternoon of the ac-
cident, Pam Ford said her son and his
friend, Gage were just a mile do"n
the road from the Fords' home in a
Wooded area they often explored
looking for' arrowheads and fossils.
Pam Ford said she called her son 10
minutes before the accident happened
and reminded him to come home as it
would be getting dark in another half
hour or so
"He was a smart boy w ho rode his
bike all the time." Pam Ford said. "I
feel like Kyle's mistake was to be too
trusting."
Kyle's mother said the family was
able to donate Kyle's organs, which
.has been a tremendous blessing to the,
family, just knowing that out of the
grief of Kyle's death other lives have
been saved. .
The Ford family consulted with
local attorney Robert Willis, who
ser ed as victim's rights counsel, fol-
lowing the accident.
Following last week's sentencing,
Willis said, "From the iegal side I
am not surprised ith howv the.case
turned out, but personally I feel like
it is an unfortunate outcome to an un-
fortunate incident."
Ultimately, Willis said he feels like
Judge Philman had no choice but to
sentence Wood as he did, considering
how the man was.charged '

WVater levels along the Suwannee River changed dramatically in just a few' dans. The chocolate colored water was just rising above the bank and
beginning to fill the front iard of D.Rayi and Diana Harrison 's home at Hart Springs on Friday morning. By Sunday afternoon the Gilchrist
Count-ht Road Department had closed Coiinh! Road 344 well past the entrance to Hart Springs Recreation Park due to flooding.


By Carrie A. NMzell
Nearly an inch of rain fell on Gil-
christ County overnight Monday as
well as in south Georgia, which will
make flood waters from the Suwan-
nee and Santa Fe Raiers rise to his-
toric crest levels by next week.
Early Tuesday morning as the
rain continued to fall, the Suwannee
River at Wilcox was at 11.72 feet.
According to the Suwannee River
Water Management District, the river
at Wilcox is predicted to crest at 16.7
feet on Wednesday. Apr 22. The Su-
%wannee is predicted to crest at 25.9
feet at Rock Bluff on Sunday.
The Santa Fe River near Ft. White
\as at 25.36 feet on Tuesday morn-
ing and predicted to crest at 29.9 feet
on Sunday.
According to Billy Cannon, assis-
tant superintendent of the Gilchrist
County Road Department. 14 roads
in Gilchrist County were closed due
to flooding as of Tuesday morning.
All of the roads closed are dirt roads
"ith the exception of County Road
344. also known as the Hart Springs
Road. which was closed on Sunday
afternoon after the murky w ater cov-
ered the highway three-qiuarters of a
mile from Paul Redd's home at the
end of CR 344
Sandbags are now available for
residents and can be picked up at the
Gilchrist County Emergency Opera-
tions Center or the Gilchrist County
Road Department, said Ron Mlills,
chief of Gilchrist County Emergency
Management. Water will be available
on a limited basis after the flooding,
Mills said.
Potable water is currently avail-
able at the stand pipe at the-southeast
comer of County Administrator Ron
McQueen's office.
When floodwaters at Wilcox rose,
above 9 feet on Sunday, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Com-.
mission t FWC activated boating re-
strictions on the only zone of the river
that hadn't been restricted yet.'
This section, Zone 4, is from the
County Road 340 Bridge at Rock
Bluff to one mile below the Fowler's
BluffBoat Ramp. According to FWC,
this 51-mile segment will be an idle-
speed, no-wake zone as long as the
Suwannee is at 9 feet or more.
Boating restrictions' on the other
four zones of the Suwannee River
were activated last week.
FWC officers are patrolling swol-
len rivers to ensure boaters comply,
with the idle-speed, no-wake rule,
said Capt. Roy Brown, area supervi-
sor at the FWC's Lake City office.

Progress Energy donates $10,000 to


Academy of
By CamieA. Mizell
Gilchrist County School District
officials received some much-needed
good news last Thursday, when they
were told the district will be receiv-
ing a $10,000 grant from Progress
Energy.
According to Patricia Powers,
grants specialist for the Gilchrist
County School District, the funds will
be used to support Gilchrist County's
Academy of Construction and En-
gineering by funding exam fees for
secondary students to obtain indus-
try certification through the National
Center for Construction Education
and Research (NCCER) in Carpen-


Construction, Engineering


try Level One or AutoCAD Certified
Professional.
"In addition to funding these valu-
able industry certification exams for
students, this project will support the
Academy by funding the purchase
supplies, equipment and software
that' will allow instructors to better
prepare students for the industry cer-
tification exam," Powers said.
With growth in the tri-county area,
Gilchrist County as well as the sur-
rounding counties will benefit from
the availability of secondary students
that are industry certified in the con-
struction and engineering fields who


can go straight into post-secondary
programs, or employment in those
fields, Powers explained.
"This project will provide funding
for the critical needs that will not be
met without the support of Progress
Energy," Powers said.
"Budget cuts have forced Gilchrist
County Schools to implement reduc-
tion in such force as to leave many
programs at risk due to lack of re-
sources."
Once funded, the project will al-
low the Academy of Construction
and Engineering to purchase items
needed to keep current in an ever
changing field.

Common unscented household
bleach (4 to 6 percent) can be used
effectively as a chlorine disinfectant.
Add 8 drops, (about 1/8 teaspoon) of
unscented household bleach per gal-
lon of water, then let stand for 30
minutes, repeating the procedure if
the water is still cloudy. An alterna-
tive disinfecting method involves
bringing water to a rolling boil for H
one minute.
If your well has been flooded,
please call (352) 463-3120 for in-
formation on how to sample your .. R
water and where to bring the sample
for bacteriological testing. If the test
reveals bacteria, the well and water
system need to be disinfected.
It is important to disinfect both well
and plumbing water with unscented i
household bleach to ensure that all
infectious agents are destroyed.
If you have water treatment de- 1 AU
vices, remove all membranes, car-
tridges, and filters and replace them
after the chlorination process is com-
pleted. The amount of chlorine deter-
mines the length of time you allow
the bleach to remain in your system.
DOH recommends the following
steps to disinfect a contaminated
well: If the water is discolored before
adding the bleach, run the water until
it is clear for up to 10 minutes.
Turn off and then drain your hot
water heater- bleach is not effective
in water above 105 degrees. Remove
and replace charcoal filters after the
disinfecting process is completed. To
avoid adding contamination to the
well during disinfection, clean the
work area around the top of the well.
Then remove grease and mineral
deposits from accessible parts of
the well head and flush the outside
surfaces with 1/2 cup of unscented
household bleach in 5 gallons of wa-
ter. Turn off the pump. Remove the
cap or the well plug on the rubber
seal. There are many types of well
caps and plugs. If you have ques-
tions, you should contact a licensed
well driller. If you have a submers-

Letter to the Editor


On March 1, 2009, I called the
Emergency Medical Services due to
the fact that I was experiencing chest
pain.
By the time they got here, I had
already used three Nitro tablets.
The EMS crew came and promptly
hooked me up to an EKG machine.
Their EKG machine didn't register
any unusual readings. Therefore, the
EMS crew decided that I wasn't actu-
ally having chest pain.
As a heart patient, having had sev-
en grafts and multiple stents over the
years, I am fully aware of what chest
pain feels like. I called for help in
being transported to the hospital, as
a known heart patient. There should
have been no question as to whether
or not to transport me to the hospital,
However, in their infinite wisdom,
the EMS crew decided' that I didn't
need to be transported. They did say
that my wife should transport me, and
if I ran into any trouble on the Way,
to pull off the road and call them. I
wouldn't know what good that would
do, if I was along side the road, and
having a heart attack! I believe that
the, EMTs are trained to handle this
type of situation, and certainly my
wife is not trained and would not
know what to do.
. My wife did transport me, over to
North Florida. They got me right in,

as they do any chest pain/heart pa-
tient. Within 25 or so minutes, I was
being treated with IV fluids and med-
ication to control the pain. That was
on a Sunday.
On Monday, the next day, I had
three stents installed in two of the
grafts, and on the following day, had
surgery to'remove a cyst which was
extremely infected. After a six day
stay in the hospital, I arrived back
home on Friday, March 6.
I asked for help from the EMTs
and was given an EKG test. I wanted
transport and was told to go myself.
Now, I am being asked to actually
pay for this lack of service. I. would
say that someone had. better review
their policies and write off this bill-
ing. There was no service provided
by your EMTs. Just answering a call
should not qualify as a billable ser-
vice unless there was actually a ser-
vice rendered.
If you. will check with the sheriff's
office, you will see that my wife
did call and leave a message for the
EMTs, since she did not know who
might be the supervisor of this ser-
vice. 1
I just wonder what your medical
service people would do if someone
like me had a full blown heart attack?
Send him with his wife?

That We May Work The Works Of God
(Kent Heaton)


When Naaman the leper came to Elisha in 2 Kings 5 he
was looking for a way to be healed of the certain death of
leprosy. A captive maiden had told Naaman's wife about a
prophet in Israel that could heal Naaman of his leprosy.
Standing at the door of the house of Elisha, Naaman is
told what to do to be saved from this terrible disease.
"Elisha sent a messenger to him, saying, "Go and wash
in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh will be restored
to you and you. will b e clean (2 Kings 5:10).
At first Naaman was furious about the instructions and
refused to obey. After the admonition of his servants,
Naaman "went down and dipped himself seven times, in
the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God;
and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child
and he was clean" (2 Kings 5:14). The commander of the
Syrian army was now free from the horrible consequences
of leprosy because of two things: the grace of God and his
own obedience to the will of God.
Salvation from sin (more horrible than leprosy) is cured
in the same manner. The grace of God is abundant toward
man through the offering of Jesus Christ (Titus- 2:11-14).
However the grace of God is of no effect if we do not
obey the will of God. This obedience is found in the
implication to work fully the plan of salvation given to us
by the grace of God'(Philippians 2:12). Naaman was not
saved simply by the grace of God nor when he believed in
the grace of God. His salvation came about when he
believed in the grace of God, embraced the message of the'
grace of God and acted upon the will of God by obedience

in the Jordan river. There were no magic. potions in the
.river but the obedience of Naaman to the instructions of
the prophet of God is how he was saved. Was he saved by
works? Obedience is works.
In John16 the people asked Jesus, "What shall we do, so
that we may work the works of God?" Jesus answered and
said -to them, "This is the work of God, that you believe in
Him whom He has sent" (John 6:28-29). Remarkably we
find that belief itself is a work.. Salvation can never be
without works because belief is necessary for salvation
(John 8:24).
Could Naaman have been cleansed by faith alone? No,
he had to .follow the pattern Paul wrote about in
Philippians 2:,12 "Work out your salvation with fear and
trembling" (Philippians 2:12). This idea of ."working out
... salvation" is to 'finish, cause to happen' and fortifies
the Biblical teaching of man's necessity of obeying the will
of God. Noah would not have been saved if he relied
solely upon the grace of God (Genesis 6:7,13,14; Hebrews
11:7) and not built the ark (Genesis 6:22). Salvation by
grace alone would have destroyed Noah and his family and,
Naaman would never have been cleansed from leprosy.
"And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of
Elisha the prophet; and none of them was cleansed,.but
only Naaman the Syrian" (Luke 4:27).
Ephesians 2 reminds us that our salvation is not based
upon our own merit but God's grace but without works we
are not justified. "You see that a man is justified by works
and not by faith alone" (James 2:24). Justified by works!

COOKING AND CARRYING' ONy
By Cindy Jo Ayers


The following three lines have
been running through my head a lot
lately. Be careful what you wish for,
one thing leads to another and this is
a fine mess I've gotten myself into.
Sometimes a small home improve-
ment project can sure turn into a big
one.
For some time I've known that
our dining room was no longer .big
enough to seat our family. I kept tell-
ing the crew, "At the first sign of a
grandchild that wall between the din-
ing room and kitchen has to come
down." In our family's case warnings
are a good thing. Needless to say that
my husband, like many other hus-
bands, does not take well to change.
So, I like to give old John the heads
up before I barrel headlong into a
new project.
. This past January, J., our son, came
in and took out the wall which sure
opened up the room. It also opened
up another problem. There was no
tile under that wall and guess what?
The tile companies no longer make
our tile. Of course, the first thing J.
said when I told him I wanted to take
down the wall months ago was to
check and see if I can find matching
tile.
Of course I didn't get around to
looking for tile until the wall was re-
moved. Since then I've looked high'
and low, but there was no matching
tile to be found.
Well, it took me several months to
decide what flooring to buy. But, in
the mean time, I repainted the walls
a nice soft yellow. Next, I attacked
the ceiling because a little sheet rock'
had to be added where the wall once
stood.
Girls, let me tell you, I have hope-
fully painted my last ceiling. My
paint roller was attached to a six-foot
handle which reached the ceiling just
fine; but, pushing that joker back and
forth nearly did me in. At a few years
past 50, pushing a roller over my
head for several hours at a time is not
fun anymore, no matter how good it
looks when I'm done.
Finally, after making several trips
to Gainesville, I settled on new tile
from Tile Contractors Supply. They
had a great closeout price which
novel. Do you Remember Captain
Woodwork Cain? In this novel, he is
a bounty hunter hired to track down a
brutal young bandit, \
Remember next Thursday at 7 p.m.
the Mayor of Bell will read to the
children. Help to get your youngster
to this "Moments with the mayor."
The third Thursday we will have "The
Poet's Comer." If you have an idea or
wish to present your hobby on one of
the other Thursdays, let the library
know and you will be welcomed by
the volunteers.,
Hope to see you at the library
soon..
The Bookworm


made the purchase mighty sweet.
J. and Michael tackled my kitchen
floor on Monday morning bright and
early. At noontime I returned home to
see how the removal of the old tile'
was coming along. Needless to say,
the guys did not need any of my ad-
vice on tile removal. J. did assure me
that the original tile layer had done
an exceptional job sticking the tile to
the floor. Anyway you turn it, prying
up well stuck down tile is-a chore. A
thin film of powdered mortar covered
everything in the kitchen and dining
room. I'm trying to block out that
picture as I write this column.
Now, I .have to tell you, I was
warned by several. well meaning
friends, that I was going to have one
more mess on my hands when the old
tile was removed. Thanks, girls, for
the info! You'll all be happy to know
that I now have a very clear picture of
mayhem in my beloved kitchen.
After ordering the new tile, it sud-
denly occurred to me that the freshly
painted walls were the wrong color.
So, guess what, once the tile job is
complete, I'll have to repaint once
-again. But I have finally come to the
point in my life that I now pick paint
colors that I can live with for a very
long time. You know, some nice sim-
ple color that will look good for years
to come.
The older I become the simpler I
want my life,.and from time to time I
wonder why I have to jump on these
big old projects.
But, on the other hand, when it's
all said and done, I'lfhave a very nice
remodeled kitchen complete with a
new stove which .1 did finally buy af-
ter much consideration.
At some point I plan to track down
a big long farm style table which will
accommodate the ever growing Ay-
ers clan. ,
As I wade through the broken tile
and'blow the inmortar dust off my cof-
feemaker in the morning, I'll just try
to picture our grandchildren, little Al-
lie and her (soon to be bom) cousin
Gus, giving me toothy grins from
high chairs at ends of the table. In my
mind's eye I can picture our family
all lined up down the table just like
the Waltons.

This simple cake recipe that fol-
lows is called a Crazy Cake. My sis-
ter-in-law Laurel makes a very good
cake that is similar to this one that
she calls a Dump Cake.

2 cups cherry pie filling
1 box yellow cake mix
1 cup crushed pineapple
1/2 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup melted butter
Layer these items in a 9x13 pan in
the order listed. Pour butter over all
and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
The pecans are optional.

To volunteer is to give of oneself,
and the ways of giving are as differ-
ent as the people who take advantage
of opportunities to give. There are in-
dividuals who think that only certain
people can volunteer: the wealthy,
those who are middle-aged, or folks
with lots of time on their hands. Right
here in Gilchrist County, however, is
a woman who breaks all the rules as
she volunteers in many ways.
At least weekly, but usually more
often, Etta Stewart, an 84-year-young
resident of 'Rock Bluff, can be found
working at the Bell Library. She
mans the checkout desk, shelves
books, and takes care of the growing
card catalog. When she is at home,

' Where did Miss Etta learn to do so
much for others? She raised two chil-

great-grandchildren to whom she is
fondly known as the "M&M. grand-

(ilcnrlst county woman's LAUD news


The old saying about pride is that it
14goes before a fall. In my experience, it
usually leaves after one too! Nothing
'-like landing on your face to put you
*.in your place. Webster's dictionary
defines pride as "an excessively high
opinion of one's self." Pride is most
. often expressed through arrogance,
the attitude of superiority.. .lifting
:one's self up, and looking down on
others. Appropriately called the "god
of I," pride is a huge enemy to our
relationships and our own hearts. In
fact, it is one of the toughest we face
-because it denies there is a problem.
In Proverbs 13:10, the Bible gives us
* some insight that will help us identify
the presence of pride:
"Pride only breeds quarrels, but
wisdom is found in those who take
,advice."
Prideplays a starring role in our
'quarrels, especially those unresolved
.-disagreements that keep being re-
;played over and over. Pride also
'does not like to be told what to do...
_refusing to take instruction or listen
to advice... another sure sign.. Pride
specializes in dividing people and
stirring up trouble, and it seeks its
own glory... being "right" at the ex-
pense of pushing others away. Pride
'is a relationship killer.
In contrast, where pride divides,,
'humility heals. In the original Greek


language, the word for humility
comes from a root word meaning, "to
make low" and is defined as having
a modest opinion of one's self. In 1
Peter 5:6, the Bible says: "Humble
yourself under God's mighty hand,
that He may lift you up in due time."
We can apply this to those quarrels
and unresolved conflicts by follow-
ing these instructions: Make your-
self low... admit you may be wrong,
or even better, that being right isn't
all that matters. Then, when God
has the final word; if we're wrong,
we've saved ourselves a fall... and if
we're right, He will be the one to say
so! One more thing worth mention-
ing about this verse is that it encour-
ages us to humble ourselves under
God's mighty hand. Fear that others
will take advantage of us or cause us
harm will often prevent us from be-
ing humble, but under God's hand
of protection, we can know that He
has our back! The flip side of hum-
bling ourselves can be found in Dan-
iel 4:37 where God reminds us that
"Those who walk in pride, He is able
to humble." God takes this enemy.
called pride seriously because of the
damage it does to our relationships
and our hearts... so we can either,
humble ourselves, or He will do it for
us.. .because our hearts matter!
Blessings, Angie

What a great time we all shared,
honoring all the senior-graduate
daughters with their mothers. Sha-
ron Bard gave the invocation, Anni
Egan shared her personal "words of
wisdom," and all our guests shared a
delicious dinner together with us. As
graduation gifts, the Woman's Club
presented all the girls with cosmetic
bags, which included toiletries for
their college days away from home.
We wish them all the best of luck
in all their future endeavors, and a
special hello again to Mariah, who
was the guest of honor at my table.
The door prizes were won by Susan
Bryant and Patricia Yates, and we all
were entertained by some young la-
dies from the Tri-County School of
Dance & Twirl Classes. Their upbeat
rendition to 'In the Mood' brought
a smile to our faces and joy to our
hearts. Thank you; Debbie, for shar-
ing your dance troupe at Thursday's
meeting. Bridget Richardson and her
Welfare Committee made it a memo-
rable evening for all of us, so many
thanks!
Don't forget to get with either Sha-
ron Bard at (386) 935-0655 or (352)
213-0829, of Gwen Waldon at (386)
935-6604 or (352) 213-2547, regard-
ing any baked goods for the forth-
coming Wild Beast Feast this Friday,
April 17, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Heav-
en's Gate Farm. Bring items directly
to the cooler there at the arena on
Thursday afternoon, or you can drop
them by the courthouse, Chamber
office, or Troke Realty's office. We
need volunteers to help before, after
and during the mealtime, so contact


Sharon and/or Gwen, to set up a con-
venient time to work, especially in
serving the desserts during the busy
hours.
Our luncheon fundraiser is sched-

volunteer to cook, serve, bring items
and/or deliver dinners. Those hungry
mouths won't be disappointed, as we
always pride ourselves on having the
best home cooking for the best price.
So, remember our luncheon date and
bring a friend to eat-in with us, take it
to go, or we can, deliver to those who
can't get away from home or work.
With that behind us, we're plan-
ning our last meeting of the year on
Thursday, May 14, at 7 p.m. The
Membership Committee, under the
leadership of Mary Jo Mansfield, will
be in charge of the installation of new
officers and committee chairpersons.
Knowing Mary Jo, it will be a fun
evening and we're all looking for-
ward to our last hoorah of the year.
For those of us that live along the
Suwannee and Santa Fe Rivers, try to
stay high and dry. Life throws us a
curve at times and sometimes a flood
like this, but they say that God won't
give us any more than we can handle.

far this season!
The young Tiger pups started
Hunter Williams on the mound and
the opening pitch was thrown just at
4 o'clock. Williams threw a fantastic
3 innings of baseball with 6 strike-
outs and only 1 walk. Each inning
Williams pitched was 3 up 3 down!
In the second inning the Tigers had
been through the lineup a total of 3
times whereas the Bucs had not even
made it through once! Defensively
they made the. routing plays, offen-
sively they hit the ball, and in return
they came up with a BIG win. John
Rowe had an exceptional game as
he went 4 for 4 and all 4 of his hits
were doubles! If you think that stat
is crazy, Rowe also had 7 RBI's on
the game! Corbin Wiggins also went
perfect at the plate batting a cool 2
for 2. Another player that came up
big for the Tiger pups was Jonathan
Smith. Smith batted 3 for 3 and drove
in 4 runs.
The Tiger pups had a total of 13
hits and held their opponent to an
overall 7 hits. The Tiger pups also
improved in the area of walks as they
only walked 1 batter this game com-
pared to,the usual 6 or more. Every-
thing really clicked for the Tiger pups
on this afternoon as they trampled the
Bucs with a final score of your Tren-
ton Tiger pups 20 and the Branford
Bucs 4!
Next up was the Varsity Tigers who
were seemingly determined to get out
of the mid-season slump. Pitching
for the Tigers would be a combina-
tion of Caleb Smith, Trey Smith, and
Karson Gilbert. Coach Scott Guthrie
decided to split the time up between
the pitchers to 2 innings apiece, but
only 5 innings were needed to topple
the Bucs; Caleb Smith threw 2, Trey
Smith threw 2, and Gilbert threw 1
inning.
The top of the 1st inning started out
a little slow for 'the Tigers but they
managed to enter the bottom of the
1st with the score still 0-0. The Tigers
came to the plate, ready to swing and
started off right with 5 hits and scor-
ing 7 runs. The Tigers must have got-

ten complacent after their 7 runs were
scored because the rest of the game
was sloppily played due to errors,
walks, and pitchers not hitting their
spots over the plate. Even though the
Tigers played a little sloppy, the Bucs
were determined to play sloppier and
the Tigers took advantage of their
mistakes. Out of C. Smith, T. Smith
and Gilbert, a total of 9 walks were is-,
sued, but the Bucs failed to capitalize
on those walks since only 3 of the 9
batters that walked scored. Branford
returned the favor to the Tigers dis-
tributing 9 walks of their own... the
only difference was the Tigers scored
6 of the 9 batters that walked com-
pared to Branford's 3.
The Tigers only had 1 more hit af-
ter the 1st inning was played which
gave them a total of 6 hits while the
Branford Bucs had a mere 4. De-
spite the careless play of the Tigers,
they were able to find a way to come
up victorious of the Bucs. The final
score to this matchup was your Tren-
ton Tigers 14 and the Branford Bucs
4. This added another district win to
the Tigers' belt, and the Tigers still
hold the 3rd position in the district
with a league record of 6-4.
The regular season is almost to
a close and the district tournament
is slowly approaching! The Tigers'
overall record now ,stands at 10-5,
which is nothing to scoff at. If you
take the Tigers lightly, they will make

.Trenton Rotary Club's first annual

Fishing tournament deemed a success


Trees down after storms Monday night
David Jones was standing near his front door and looking out the window when this large oak tree fell in
his front yard just before 8 a.m. on Tuesday morning. The pastor of Fanning Springs Community Church
said he and the four people who were in his Wilcox home when the tree fell were very fortunate that the tree
did not fall on the house. Though the home was not damaged, and everyone was safe, two vehicles were
damaged when the tree crushed them.

By Charlie Smith
The Trenton Rotary Club held its
First Annual Fishing Tournament out
of Suwannee Marina on Saturday,
April 11; and despite the muddy
water of the flooding Suwannee River
and a SSW wind of about 15 mph,
the tournament was a great success.
Young Clayton Smith of Chiefland
claimed First Prize for the "Best Bag,"
which is the total weight of 2 redfish
and 5 trout, with a winning weight of
15.28 lbs. Clayton was fishing with
his dad Robert and Clayton Gay. The
event started on Friday night at the
Trenton Woman's Club where Billy
DeVore, Matt VunCannon, Cindy
Slaughter and Pat Yates worked
together to put on a fantastic steak
dinner at the Captain's Dinner for the
fishermen and Rotary members.
After dinner, Rotary Club President
Charlie Smith and Mark Feather
conducted what was obviously their
first "Calcutta." The Calcutta is an
auction sort of format where fishermen
and spectators have an opportunity to
bid on the boats that they think will
win the fishing tournament; usually.
the boat captain opens the bidding
on his own boat and the bidding is
good natured and a lot of fun. The
bidding on the 3 highest boats went
to 1) Darryl Feagle's boat. Darryl was
fishing with Todd Gray; Darryl works
with Todd at Gray Construction in
Trenton and they were also one of the
major sponsors of the tournament.
The second highest bid went to
Gray Drummond's boat; Gray was
fishing with Brad Brunner, and
Gray has a" reputation as one of the
better fishermen in the area. Damon
Leggett fished with his brother Greg,
and their boat earned the third highest
bid, thanks to Damon's wife, Xina.
The parking lot and boat ramp at
Suwannee Marina were getting busy
before 6 a.m. because, in addition
to the Rotary Tournament, the area
bassmasters who were planning on
going out of Fowlers Bluff decided
to move to Suwannee because of
the high river. Start time of the
tournament was 7:00, and there were
17 boats entered by then. Mark
Feather, fishing with David Stone,
was the last boat out; .1I think he said
that his alarm clock didn't go off,

Rodney Rucker fishing with James Collier won $250 first prize for
largest redfish caught in the tournament. Charlie Smith presented the
anglers their prize and thanked them for participating in the tourna-
ment.

and Mark looked good leaving the
dock in David's airboat with the FSU
Seminole flag waving. Unfortunately
I didn't have my camera handy, but
the image is etched in my mind, and
Mark hasn't heard the last of that.
The cloudy water from the swollen
Suwannee River meant that the
boats had to go north or south quite
a ways to get out of it and in fact
everyone reported that the water
was cloudy where ever they went.
Most everybody came home with
something to show' for the day.
Damon Leggett snagged a stingray
that won him biggest trash fish, and
Joe Gilliam had a catfish that was a
close second. Sorry, Joe, only one
prize for trash fish.
Winning boat for the biggest redfish
was captained by Rodney Rucker of,
Newberry and his mate James Collier.
Their 5.53 lb red earned a first prize
of $250. Second prize redfish went
to Joe Harris and Troy Shivers of
Chiefland, and 3rd prize red was won


by' David and Dean Scarborough of
Gainesville, fishing with their friend
Bill Hart.
The biggest trout weighed 4.77
lbs. and was caught by John Taylor
of Suwannee, fishing with Ralph
Jowett; second place went to Matt
Cowart of Chiefland, fishing with
Paul MacArthur. Mark Feather left
before the final results were posted,
but his 1.56 lb. trout was big enough
to win third prize.
At the end of the day the tournament
raised about $3,200 for Suwannee
Valley Leagues,- the local youth
sports organization that the Trenton
Rotary Club has chosen as its main
beneficiary. The Trenton Rotary Club
believes that SVL and all that they do
to keep our kids busy on the baseball,
football and soccer fields does more
to build sound young bodies and
minds than anything else we could
do in the community. Please support
Suwannee Valley Leagues and their
programs.
