Minor injuries reported in plane crash last Wednesday near Trenton
M io inju ies rp te .i',. I ,' ras .'t:W .S


By Came A. Mizell
A small plane crashed Wednesday
morning in a field off County Road
344, injuring the pilot who is report-
edly a flight school student.
The Cessna 152 aircraft went down
at 10:34 a.m. near the intersection of
SW 47th Court and County Road 344
in a field owned by Ben Colson
The body of the two-seater plane
stayed intact as it hit the ground,
flipped over and settled, explained
Major Tony Smith of the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office.
Pilot Anup Sudhkar, of India, in-
curred a possible broken nose in the
crash, while his passenger Anil Nay-
ak, also of India, was uninjured.
Deputy Megan Wooten of the Gil-
christ County Sheriff's Office indi-


cated that both the pilot and the pas-
senger were able to provide passport
information, flying permits/license,
and school identifications at the time
of the crash.
According to Smith, the men were
returning to their flight school, Sun-
rise Aviation in Ormond Beach, after
embarking on a short flight at 8:30
a.m.
Sudhkar told Deputy Wooten that
he and Nayak were on a scheduled
flight to Cross Cjit and landed at 10
a.m. The plane stayed on the ground
at the Cross City Airport long enough
for the men to use the restroom and
take off once again.
While enroute back to Ormond
Beach, the pilot reported engine
trouble shortly before the plane went


down in west Gilchrist County.
Sudhkar said he sent out a "may-
daW" distress signal to the Cross City
Airport. but he did not receive a re-
sponse before they were forced to be-
gin looking for a place to land.
The plane was only in the air for a
few minutes before it crashed on the
Colson Farm property.
The student pilots were apparently
trying to upgrade their license by at-
tending flight school at the time of
the crash.
Both the pilot and the passenger
refused medical care from Gilchrist
County EMS.

inspector with the Federal Aviation
Administranon. is currently investi-
gating the crash

Trenton City Commissioners
passed a resolution on Monday eve-
ning inducting Mary Jo Mansfield
and the late John F. Haigler into the
Trenton Hall of Fame
Mayor Glen Tlhgpen signed Reso-
lution No. 2009-02, which states that
both Mansfield and Haigler have
made significant and substantial con-
tributions to the City of Trenton and
its residents and businesses
Mansfield is a Trenton native and
a -Florida State University graduate,
who taught elementary education,
primarily music, for 41 years. Dur-
ing her tenure as an educator. Mao-
sfield taught in Gilchrist County for
28 years, having worked at both Bell
Elementary School and Trenton Ele-
mentary School. Since retiring, Man-
sfield has worked as a volunteer and
a substitute teacher. She is actively
involved with Gilchrist County Char-
acter Council and AARP. Mansfield
is also president of Gilchrist/Levy
County Retired Educators Associa-
tion and Chairwoman of the Gilchrist
County Woman's Club Membership
Committee.
The late John F. Haigler (1886-
1965) was known around Trenton as
a shrewd, but generous man, fun-lov-
ing and fond of good jokes.
He was the one'who built the Coca
Cola Bottling Plant in Trenton, which
is today the Suwannee Valley'Quilt
Shoppe. Haigler also bought out the.
Coca Cola plants in Bronson and
Williston, which made it possible for
his business to serve the tri-county
area.
. Bottles from the Trenton plant have
either"Trenton. Florida" or "Haigler"
stamped on their bottoms. Today. the


Trenton native A lary Jo A hansfield is shown accepting a plaque acknowl-
edging her as a new member of Trenton Hall of Fame fomi A layor Glen
Thigpen. A lansfield is joined by her daughter, A elanie Dorminey and
son-in-law, Dale DonnineY. .


Suwannee Valley Rose Caf,. located
in the Quilt Shoppe. has some of
these bottles on display at each table.
In the old days. Haigler welcomed
kids who wanted to stop bN and tour
the Coca Cola Bottling Plant. Each
kid was given a warm coke. paper
and a pencil as gifts for stopping by.
According to an excerpt from "Gil-
chri st County. Its History and Its Peo-
ple," one year J.F. Haigler found out
five children were unable to afford


lunch at the Trenton: School. He went
to the principal and personally wrote
out a check for their lunches for the
rest of the school term. Haigler also
had a first grade/kindergarten teacher
named Gertrude Sapp look for chil-
dren in need at the Trenton School.
Then he would have them brought to
Bill Lazarus' Fair Store to get new
clothes. He did this service, as well
as numerous others, for years without
telling anyone. '

Regional Water Authority

could bring stimulus to

Gilchrist, Dixie Counties


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
on Monday supported a $28 million
stimulus investment into the Gilchrist
and Dixie County economies as they
partnered with Dixie and the com-
munities in these counties to bring a
water authority to the rural area.
In Gilchrist County the municipali-
ties of Trenton, Bell, Fanning Springs
and Gilchrist County are each seek-
ing the maximum $3 million each for
water distribution.
In Dixie County the communi-
ties of Cross City' along with Dixie
County are each seeking $3 million
for water distribution.
The Nature Coast Regional Water
Authority is also seeking $3 million
for water distribution and $7 million
for wastewater collection.
Ron McQueen, Gilchrist County
administrator, explained to the four
board members that the Nature Coast
Regional Water Authority is seek-
ing stimulus funds from President
Barack Obama's stimulus package.
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District's representative
Steve Minnis who has been working
with the board told the authority this
area has a good possibility of receiv-
ing these funds.
The Nature Coast Regional Water
Authority board is working with Mitt-
alier and Associates, Inc. consulting


engineers in the establishment of this
regional water program.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to approve the grant
request. for $3 million involving the
Nature Coast Regional Water Au-
thority.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
agreed with a second as the board all
agreed in a 4-0 vote.
If the funds for Gilchrist County,
Bell and Trenton are approved, these
revenues could construct a regional
well field east of Bell and establish
pipelines in Gilchrist County for fu-
ture use.
The municipalities and counties in-
volved in this project are expected to
approve the proposal and submit the
grant request before April 30, 2009.

Character

Personality of

the Month
By Geneva Corwell
Sincerity is the key word for the
month.
Its concept is doing what is right
not just on the outside, but on the
inside; as well. It is being genuinely
good all the way through. Every rela-
tionship hinges upon the inward mo-
tives of each individual. If a person
has wrong motives, the natural inpli-
nation is to hide them. Hiding wrong
motives, however, is, insincere, and
those wrong motives will eventually
be exposed. Motives which are not
right must be corrected,
Absolute sincerity is possible only
if a person is. committed to' keep-
ing a clear conscience. Othei-wise,
there will always be hidden motives
shrouded within a guilty conscience.
A clear conscience is not obtained by
justifying "why I did what I did," but
by' sincerely identifying what char-
acter qualities have, been violated by
wrong actions or attitudes. Sincerity
is being genuine, even though being
genuine requires .a level of vulner-
ability. Sincerity must always be bal-
anced by discretion.
The personality highlighted this
month, as we feature the character
trait, of sincerity, is Mrs. Stephanie
Austin.
She is a Bell High School alumna,
and will in a few short weeks, be a UF
graduate with a degree in psychology.
She also holds the proud position of
being a homemaker and homeschool-
ing morn of her twq children, ages
14 an4 13. She qnd hFr husband arid
children lie on the fail farm right

Local citizens rally against wasteful

Some 350 citizens gathered near the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce for the Tea Party.


By Carrie A. Mizell
They may not have tossed tea bags
into the river, but some 350 citizens
did tote signs protesting taxes and ir-
responsible spending in Washington
last Wednesday at Gilchrist County's
Tea Party.
Held in the parking lot near the
county building, the non-partisan
gathering lasted five hours and drew
veterans of the armed forces, politi-
cians, and concerned citizens of all
ages.
Gilchrist County residents in at-


here in Gilchrist County.
Stephanie related that sincerity is
important'to her because of personal
life experiences she has had with oth-
er people in not being sincere with her
and not saying what they mean when
she was trying to be sincere to them.
Through additional life 'experiences,
Mrs. Austin has learned that, now as
a mature adult college student, there
are certain arguments which college
professors give as facts, which are
not necessarily the truth. She believes
that it is necessary for the more ma-
ture student to stand up and declare
what is sincere and true, and she did
just that recently in a college class.
This delightful woman believes
that it was through the modeling of
her. parents which helped her to gain
a clear understanding of who she is
and that"being a person of integrity

"The crowd was far above what I

sincerity and we don't have a lot of
models to follow, but the one true
model is God's word." She believes

being sincere makes one vulnerable,
it is still important to be sincere no
matter the cost."
Mrs. Austin bases all of what she
does in her life on 1 Corithinans 13 by
"rejoicing in the truth." She also lives
by Proverbs 3:5-8, which helps her to
stay on track, for as she is known by
others, she continually goes about
sowing seeds of good character.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


The 16th Annual Wild Beast Feast
has once again become a memory in
Gilchrist County. This year I was a
member of a new team that cooked
and prepared the sweet corn for the
many people that attended the feast. I
want to thank Alvin Langford, Allen
Mikell, Jon Gray, Steve Ames and
the many outstanding boys and girls
from Bell and Trenton High Schools
that made this challenge a positive,
experience.
Alvin Langford was our experi-
enced cooker as he had been on the
corn preparation committee for sev-
eral years. When he agreed to again
be a part of this rookie group, I felt
we had the people that could make
things happen. I was pleased with the
cooked corn and the way this team.
worked together to make this become
a reality. They all did a great job.
There were many examples of
people working with the Educational
Foundation of Gilchrist County vol-
unteering of their time and property
to make things happen this year.
On Wednesday before the beast
feast, the swamp cabbage had to
be cut and iced for the' preparation
on Friday. On Wednesday morning
a group of volunteers gathered at
the Bailey Brothers camp in Dixie
County to hit the woods and begin
the harvest. I was told there would
be breakfast for the volunteers before
the work began, but I didn't have any'
idea it would involve a full multi-


course feast. The team led by Ray
Hodge and Paul Bryant had a break-
fast that would please the hungriest
of eaters. It was a great delight; even.
though I don't eat a lot in the morn-
ing, I enjoyed the scrambled eggs,
grits, sausage, and biscuits. I want to
thank' the manly volunteers and high
school students that came out to get
this tough job done very well. This is
a task that no one looks forward to,
but when you have good help and.
everyone is willing to pitch in and
get things done, it makes the day go
much easier.

On the riverfront, the water front
property owners in Gilchrist County
have received good news. Inthe Hart
Springs-Wilcox area, the Suwannee
River reached a crest on Monday,
April 20 and hopefully will be falling
soon. I am thankful that the flooding
Suwannee River did not reach the
predicted levels of the 1998 and 1973
floods. This is an example of the pre-
dicted levels that did not. take into
consideration the dry conditions that
we were formerly experiencing in the
woods.
I now hope that we don't have an
extremely wet spring or a tropical
summer that would match- 2004, be-
cause if we do, we will be in trouble
for sure. It is when the surface con-
ditions in the woods are wet and the
aquifer is full, that we experience a
flood of record.

Streetwise ByLa d
By Lauren Rudd


After the so called."tea parties" of
April 15, I can only say that kudos
should go to economics professor
Alan Blinder for his succinct por-'
trayal of the government's economic
recovery plan. As Blinder put it, we
are fighting a war on two fronts. On
one front the battle is over a\ lack of
demand. While we are winning after
firing salvos of lower interest rates,
tax cuts and the stimulus package re-
cently enacted by Congress, victory
is almost within grasp.
On the other front, the battle is over
credit or more precisely the lack 'of it.
Success here is more elusive. To win
requires a restoration of health within
the banking sector and a resumption
of the issuance of credit. Although
the Fed has flooded the banking sys-
tem with loans, the. overriding prob-
lem is a lack of capital. Moreover, the
private sector is not yet stepping up
to the plate, although there is some
evidence of players warming up in
the bullpen.
However, banks are only part ;of
the problem. As Blinder points out,
there is' a shadow banking system,
"A complex web of interlocking, and
sometimes mysterious capital mar-
kets." These shadow markets play a
crucial role in ensuring the flow of
.credit.
The. administration is trying to
bring these shadow markets back to
life through the implementation of
various foreclosure mitigation pro-
.grams and public-private investment
partnerships. The Fed has also imple-
mented an unprecedented agenda of
lending and money-creation activi-
ties.
The bottom line is that taxpayer
money is being put at .risk for the
.simple reason that winning on both
fronts ip mandatory. Nonetheless, as
in any war there will always be col-
lateral damage. For now, it amounts
to huge deficits, a record expansion
of the money supply, and aid being
offered to some for whom punish-
mept is more befitting. And yes, some
profiteering will take place. Dealing
with those issues must be left to later.
For now we .need to concentrate on
winning the war and righting our
economic ship.
So how do you achieve above av-
erage investment returns given the
current economic turbulence? One
answer is to invest in. companies
that have a symbiotic relationship
with the affairs of state, preferably.


on a global basis. A good example is
Raytheon (RTN) and the global fight
against pirates.
Raytheon's Silent Guardian Active
Denial System (ADS) uses millime-
ter wave technology to excite water
molecules in the surface layers of
the skin, thereby creating a burning
sensation. The weapon is non-lethal
because its radiation does not pen-
etrate deeply enough to cause lasting
injury.
Weighing in at more than three
tons with an antenna nearly four feet
square, it would fit quite nicely on a
ship. In addition to being non-lethal,'
ADS has the range necessary to keep
bad guys at a safe distance.
Raytheon and the Navy are already
exploring the' possibility of using
ADS to foil pirates. If the pirate threat
continues to escalate, and it likely
will, this could become 'a profitable
line of business for Raytheon.
So how does Raytheon stack up
as a possible investment candidate?
When I wrote about the company a
year ago, my 2008 earnings estimate
was $3.92 per share. Earnings came
in at $3.95 per share. There is more
good news. The company recently
announced an 11 percent increase
in its annual dividend to $1.24 from
$1.12.
The intrinsic value of the shares,
using a discounted earnings model
with a 10 percent discount rate and an
earnings growth rate of 11 percent, is
$102 per share. The more conserva-
tive free cash flow to the firm model
'yields an intrinsic value of $134 per
share. Raytheon's shares recently
closed at $42.21 and have chalked up
a 24.81 percent gain so far this year.
My earnings estimate for 2009 is,
$4.70 per share and $5.14 per share
in 2010, with a 12-month target share
price of $48. There is also a dividend
yield of 2.9 percent. Raytheon plans
to release its 2009 first quarter results

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


Favorite food: I like Italian,
but love Chinesse.
My hero: Is my sister because
when my parents divorced my
mom didn't take it so well. My
sister dropped everything to raise
me and take care of the house. I
respect her for it.


Our granddaughter, Allie Claire,
turned six months old last week. Sev-
eral people have asked me about her
recently and a couple asked why I
don't write about her. Well, the fact
is I've tried to restrain myself, so ev-
eryone is not sick of Allie before they
even have a chance to know her. But I
think once every six months isn't too,
too bad.
Her mother (Carrie) and I were at a
restaurant last weekend; and now that
she has been introduced to teething
cookies, we thought she might like to
taste the dill pickle spear that came
with our sandwich. Let me tell you
that little heifer had one more fine
time with that pickle. Every time I
.picked her up for the rest of the after-
noon I could smell dill. Her gums are
giving her a fit, and that cold pickle
did the trick.
What: can I say about little Al-
lie, but of course she is the apple of
our eye. She is a tad head strong and
loves it when her Pap (John) holds
her above his head and gives her a
ride though the sky. Like any true
Southern girl she loves to eat sweet
potatoes, and she is fascinated with
her great grandmother's diamond
rings. At six months'old Allie freely
gives the biggest ol' smiles, and those
sugary-juciy kisses are wonderful.
Her mother says there is going to be
trouble, because Allie is bad to fight.'
Her favorite opponent is any stuffed
animal or shopping bag.
.She is sitting alone and cruising
around' our back porch in her walker.
Her hands are so plump now that she
has sweet dimples across her knuck-
les and a deep crease at each wrist.
She has her mother's big blue eyes,
but from her nose down she is her
daddy. Speaking of her nose, we are
not sure where that little button nose
came from.
Our entire family is real excited
that in just a few weeks, we will have
a brand new baby to love. Our son
J. and our sweet daughter-in-law,
Lyndsay,. are expecting their first

on April 23.

Matthew and Major Lancaster, of Trenton, had the opportunity to
meet Tim Tebow, quarterback for the Florida Gators, on April 4 while
attending Dance Marathon held at the O'Connell Center in Gaines-
ville. The 26.2-hour event, benefits the patients of Shands Children's
Hospital at the University of Florida. Over the last 14 years of Dance
Marathon, more than $2.8 million has been donated making the an-
nual event the largest and most successful student-run philanthropy
in the Southeastern United States. The 2009 Dance Marathon raised
$413,562. According to Matthew's.father, Deen Lancaster, 9-year-old
Matthew is considered a "Shands Miracle Child." As an ambassador
for the children's hospital, Matthew had the opportunity to appear on
stage with Tebow and numerous other miracle children. The Lancaster
family enjoyed a limo ride to the Tri Delta sorority house where they
enjoyed dinner. According to Deen, Tebow's public relations represen-
tative watched the quarterback interact with his boys and was so im-
pressed that he asked Matthew and Major to act as honorary captains
for Tebow's football team during a sorority powder puff football game,
which was held on Friday evening.

GTLCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


J-Ieart Matters


So you had a bad day? Flat tire?
Slow waitress? Get cut off in traffic?
At times, daily life can be pretty frus-
trating and downright inconvenient,
"but how we handle these situations
may just tell us more about our own
.character than we want to know!
In the book of Proverbs 24:10, the
Bible suggests that: "If you falter in
times of trouble, how. small is your
strength!"
Times of trouble can be useful to
show us what kind of moral fiber
we are made of, and if we are will-
ing, they can strengthen those fibers
considerably. Often we fail to take
advantage of this benefit because we
misunderstand what a trial really is.
Trouble actually means adversity or
affliction...real trouble, not a minor
inconvenience or a nuisance. It seems
that we make it our goal to avoid any
kind of real struggle or trouble and
seek to detach from anything that
might cause us grief. We grow com-
fortable in our luxury (compared to
the 'rest of the worldl, and become
more and more self-absorbed and be-
gin to replace real needs with those
that aren't'. Our problem then be-
comes mistaking simple annoyances
for real suffering.
For example, we grumble about
standing in line too long at the gro-
cery store, when many in the world
won't have enough to eat today. We
stay busy running our errands and
keeping the laundry done and ignore
the struggles our teenagers are facing
daily. Irritated by the mistake of an-
other driver, we assume that we are
the only one on the road with an im-


portant place to be. Detached and
self-absorbed.
The trials that develop strength are
ones that test your faith.. Troubles
that can only be overcome or even
accepted by the understanding that
we are not in control, nor does this
world revolve around us. James 1:2-
3 reminds us that trials develop per-
severance, which produces maturity.
Webster defines maturity as being
fully developed. In context, we are
mature not because of our physical
size or the number of our years, but
by how clearly we can differentiate
between an inconvenience and an
authentic trial. We are wise to force
ourselves to tell the difference, be-
cause our hearts matter!
Blessings, Angie

We are facing the worst economic

tion is to implement the single largest
permanent expansion of government
in American history. Growing gov-
ernment has never created permanent
jobs or enduring prosperity. It has
failed every time it has been tried.
But here is what will work: Stop
spending money we don't have. Stop
wasting money on things that don't
grow the economy. Pass tax cuts that
will grow our economy and create
jobs.

to host 2009 District

By Scott Guthrie

on Friday, May 1st with the cham-
pionship game. Seven teams in the
district will be competing including
host Trenton, Bell, Lafayette County,
Branford, Bronson, Oak Hall, and
Hawthorne. This year's top seed are
the Lafayette Hornets with a district
record of 11-1. Oak Hall and Trenton
make up the second and third seed re-
spectively.
The tournament will get under-

Tigers tame the Dogs
for the last time of the
regular season
by Brandon McElroy
With the District tournament ap-
proaching fast, the Tigers began to
prepare themselves mentally as well
as physically with only 1 more week
remaining in the regular season. Last
week started out with a tough game
first, a dirty game Second, and to cap
the week off, a rivalry game.
First on the Tigers list was the Tay-
lor County Bulldogs. The Bulldogs
traveled all the way from Perry with
last year's 6-4 loss to the Tigers fresh
on their minds. Caleb Smith started
on the mound and threw a fairly de-
cent game for the Tigers. Smith threw
for 6 innings then Chance Brooks' re-
lief efforts were called on. Between
the two pitchers, an improved 4 walks
were handed out and 5 strikeouts
were dished to the Bulldogs. Offen-
sively Justin Alvarez was on fire bat-
ting a perfect 3 for 3 at the plate and
scoring every time he reached base!
Also Chance Brooks ripped the Bull-
dogs pitcher hitting a sky-high 3 run
homer over the left field fence. De-
spite the outstanding efforts from the
Tigers, it just wasn't enough to top
the Bulldogs, whose school is much
bigger ,than Trenton's. The Tigers put
up an incredible fight and were hand-
ed their 6th loss of the season with a
final score of your Trenton Tigers 6
and the Taylor County Bulldogs 9.
Next up for the Tigers was one of
their last district games, the always
dirty Hawthorne Hornets. Start-
ing on the mound for this matchup
was Karson Gilbert, who was dish-
ing out some of his nastiest pitches
of the season. Gilbert went all 7 in-
nings, mostly achieving 3 up 3 down
throughout'the entire game. Gilbert
sat down 10 of Hawthorne's play-
ers with strikeouts and allowed 'an'
incredible 0 walks! This is the first
time this season no walks have been.
allowed in a game.
Good, fun, and clean baseball was
being played until a player from Haw-
thorne decided to throw an elbow at
senior first baseman Ryan Schmitz.
S'chmitz was in the process of catch-'
ing a fly ball this player had just hit
when the elbow struck him right in the
ribs. After a heated debate, the player
was soon tossed from the game but
the damage had already been done.
Schmitz suffered 2 bruised ribs and
a bruised liver and had to pit out the
rest of the game. -
After the intentional thrown elbow,
all joking was put aside and the Tigers
achieved their revenge on the base-
ball field by beating the Hornets with
a. final 'score of your Treniton Tigers 6
and the Hawthorne Hornets 3. Justin
Alvarez continued his hot streak at
the plate by going 2 for 3. Trey Smith"
'-also. went an excellent 2 for 3 from
the plate and drove in 2 runs.
Finally, to top the week off the Ti-
gers faced their cross county rivals,
the Bell Bulldogs. The fragrance of
hamburgers on the grill filled the Jun-
gle with that great high school base-
ball atmosphere. Nerves were short
as well as adrenaline high since this
was the last time the Tigers would
face the Bulldogs in the regular sea-
son
The hard throviing junior Trey
Smith started on the mound for. the
Tigers and threw an amazing game,
shutting down the Bulldogs offense!
Smith allowed only 3 hits in 7 in-
nings played and only 2 runs were
scored. Smith also struck, out 13 of
the Bulldogs players and permitted[
only 3 walks. Everything was roll-
ing for the Tigers offensively as well.
Collectively, the Tigers had 10 hits
on the night and scored an uncontest-
ed 11 runs. In addition to great pitch-
ing, Trey Smith also went a perfect 2
for 2 at the plate. Justin Alvarez and
Caleb Smith also contributed to the
offensive 'slaughter by going 2 for 4
at the plate. The Tigers were all over
the Bulldogs in this matchup rout-
ing the Bulldogs with a final score of
your Trenton Tigers 11 and the Bell
Bulldogs2!
Thursday, 4/23, will be the Tigers'
senior night, the last regular season
game the seniors will play at home.
Come out and support the efforts of
these seniors! They have done a great
job leading this team to the 12-6 re-
cord the Tigers hold! Also, to end
the regular season, the Tigers face
the. Chiefland Indians on the Indi-
ans' home turf. This promises to be
a great matchup judging by the first
time these two powerhouses met!.
Also "another. important note is
the District Tournament will be held
here, in Trenton, starting 4/27. Coach
Scott would like to invite everyone
out to support the efforts of the Tigers
and to help the Tigers bring home the
District championship trophy!

Gilchrist All County Band news


Gilchrist All County Band students during one of their hours of practice for the Gilchrist All County


Band performance.
The finest musicians from Bell and
Trenton were selected to perform
this past Saturday as part' of the All
County Band in the Iris Roberts Au-
ditorium at Bell High School. The
student musicians spent Thursday
night, Friday and Saturday morn-
ing working on their musical selec-
tions under the direction of Dr. David
Plack from Florida State University.
, As a patron of this event for the
past eight years, I was amazed with
the talent and attention to detail that
these fine students and Dr. Plack
worked on-over the past few days.
This performance would have rivaled
any I have seen on a State level over
the last few years, a true indication
that quality, not quantity is the true
measure of success.
The afternoon began with bassoon-
ists, Kristen Burke of Bell and Justin
Martin of Trenton each conducting a
warm up chorale prior to the perfor-
mance. Dr. Plack introduced the first
selection of "Abracadabra" which
was written by Frank Ticheli for his
young son and his love of magic.
The second musical piece was a col-
lection of "Songs of Old Kentucky"
in two movements with rhythmic
clapping. This piece also showcased
three solos by Thomas Peace of Bell
and Shelby Beck of Trenton on the
alto Saxophone and Gabrielle Hunter
of Bell on trumpet. The final piece
was "His Honor" a march by Henry
Fillmore. A pleasant surprise of the
afternoon for students and the audi-
ence were the two band directors per-
forming with the students, Trenton's
Director Stacey Trenteseaux on the
', '


French horn and. Bell's Director,
Sara Gover on the Trombone. Fol-
lowing the performance, the Tri-M
Presidents, Kristen Burke of Bell and
Sarah Heaton of Trenton presented
Dr. Plack with Lifetime memberships
to their organizations for his efforts
as clinician and director of the All
County Band.'

JV Tigers end season
with, a 13-3 record
Last week brought a close to the
2009 junior varsity season. Every
member of the team played and con-
tributed to the success of the season.
The Tiger pups finished with an in-
credible record of 13 wins and only
3 losses! This same group of young
men last year went an almost perfect
14-1! This is a very talented group of
players and if they continue to stick
together, work hard, and improve,

they will be a force to reckon with in
the near future.
On Tuesday, Taylor County trav-
eled all the way from Perry to face
the young and talented Tiger pups.
The majority of players on Taylor
County's team turned out to be soph-
omores with a great deal of game
experience. The Tiger pups mainly
consist of 8th graders with a few 9th
graders thrown in the mix and a cou-
ple 7th graders. Although the Taylor
County Bulldogs had more experi-
ence, age, and a little bit of size on
the Tiger pups, the Tiger pups did
not back down. Once again, walks
just ate the Tiger pups alive. The first
3 batters drew a walk and ended up
scoring and this put the Tiger pups
behind early, something they don't
enjoy dealing with. Taylor County's
pitcher was very gifted and hit spots
'over the plate that made it very dif-
ficult for the Tiger pups to hit the
ball like they normally do. The Tiger
pups were held to only 6 hits com-
pared to their usual 9 or 10. Taylor
County was also held to only 6 hits
but took advantage of the 12 walks
the Tiger pups granted them and ran
away with the score. The Tiger pups
tried to make a run in the 4th inning,
but it was entirely too late, losing by
the final score of your Tiger pups 7
and the Taylor County Bulldogs 14.
Next on the Tiger pups list was the
Hawthorne Hornets. This was a fun
game for the Tiger pups and a nice
game to have before they had to play
the cross county rival, Bell. The Ti-
ger pups jumped out to a fast lead and
never let the Hornets catch up. Runs
were scored in every inning save one
by the Tiger pups! The Tiger pups
were hitting the ball hard, drawing
walks and playing fundamentally
sound baseball and came up with a
big marginal victory of the Hornets
with a final score of your Tiger pups
13 and the Hawthorne Hornets 2!
Even 0. Parrish (a 7th grader who.
moved up to JV) got involved in the
action and contributed at the plate
with a base hit and scoring on a pass
ball! Darren Skawienski did a great
job this game for the Tiger pups by
going 2 for 3 at the plate.
There is no better way to finish out
the regular season than by playing
an old cross county rival. Better yet,
there is.no better feeling than leaving
the season with a victory over your
cross county rival. To cap a very suc-
cessful 2009 season, the Tiger'pups
bowed up Saturday afternoon and

are working hard to make this a


took on the Bell Bulldogs. This would
be their last game of the season and
everyone wanted to end it right; and
that's just what they did!
If the Tiger pups jump out on their
opponent early, they might as well.
call it a day; once the Tiger pups taste
victory and smell fear, it all snow-
balls for the Tiger pups. With expec-
tations high and adrenaline flowing,
the Tiger pups jumped out to a 4-0
early lead on the Bulldogs. When the
Tiger pups achieved this early lead, it
seemed as though it was a one-sided
ball game. With the marvelous pitch-
ing from Darren Skawienski and the
close out abilities of Jonathan Smith,
the Tiger pups shut down the offense
of the Bulldogs and only allowed
3 runs. Between the 2 pitchers, 13
strikeouts were handed out to Bull-

were made as well. Every ball that
was hit seemed to have smoke tailing
behind it! Steven Smith had a great
season ending game going 2 for 3 at
the plate. The Tiger pups win their fi-
nal game of the season by the final
score of your Tiger pups 9 and the
Bell Bulldogs 3.
Thank you to all the fans that came
out and gave their time and support
to these young players. It was very
encouraging for them to see a crowd
watching them. Congratulations to
Coach Todd Bryant for another suc-
cessful season and to the team for
continuous hard work and dedication.
As parents and citizens of Gilchrist

undertakings of our youth!

Happy Birthday
My Darling
James Sanchez -
This poem was written for you,
by your grandson
Bradley Rhodes U.S. Navy.
We love and miss you very much,'
Your Loving Wife, Son & Family


Peaceful Passing.
You've gave it your all, you've never gave up,
right 'til the end, you held your head up.
Everyone who loved you, right by your side,
there ain't no way, anyone can deny.
That your passing was peaceful, it was long overdue
because a man such as you
shouldn't have suffered, and couldn't be subdued.
Everyone will miss you, this is true, .
for you touched our lives, through and through.
Now as we mourn )our passing way,
we remember a man, who went out of his way.
To make someone happy, he knew what to do,
and he always made sure, we ate the food that he grew.
Whether it was tomatoes, and beans, or cucumbers and squash,
his food always comforted us, whether we were hungry or not.
So in remembrance today, let us praise such a man,
who graces the angels, and walks in the promise land.

Home clean-up after the
storm
After a flood event has passed; fail-
ure to remove contaminated materi-
als can cause health risks. If there is
flooding, water must be removed as
quickly as possible since it may con-
tain material from overflowing sew-
age systems.
If there has been a backflow of
sewage into the house, the following
measures should be taken to ensure
proper clean-up: Walls, hard-sur-
faced floors and many other house-
hold surfaces must be cleaned with
soap and water and disinfected with
.a solution of I cup of bleach to five
gallons of watert Thoroughly dis-
infect surfaces that come in contact
with food and children's play areas.
Wash all linens and clothing in hot
water or dry-clean. Items that can-
not obe' Washed or dry-cleaned, such
as mattresses and 'upholstered fur-
niture, must be air dried in the sun
and sprayed thoroughly with a dis-
infectant. Steam-clean all carpeting.
Fiberboard, fibrous insulation and
disposable filters that have contacted
floodwater or sewage should. be re-
placed in your heating and air con-
ditioning system. Wear rubber boots
and waterproof gloves during clean-
up. -
Be careful about mixing household'
cleaners and disinfectants, as com-
bining certain types of products can
produce toxic fumes and result in in-
jury or death.
It can be difficult to 'throw away
items in a home, particularly those
with sentimental value. However,
keeping certain items soaked by sew-
age or floodwaters may be unhealthy.
In general, materials that cannot be
thoroughly cleaned and dried within
24-48 hours should be discarded.

partment or visit www.doh.state.fl.us

Standing at the dessert table (right to left), we have Bridget Richard-
son, the chairperson for the Gilchrist Woman's Club's Welfare Com-.
mittee, and one'of her committee members, Anni Egan, who gave an
inspirational pep talk to the Senior class gals attending. In fact, her
"words of wisdom" were motivating to all of us there. Thank you to
the whole club, who brought food, decorations, door prizes & gifts to
our young ladies that attended, as well as the dancers from The Dance
& Twirl Studio in Bell (who were pictured in last week's Gilchrist Co.


Journal).
A great big '"thank you," to ev-

to mention, but we do thank all the
volunteers that helped bake, set up
and serve the delicious desserts (and
help with the cleanup, afterwards),
all done for this worthwhile event.
A special hug to Gwen Walden, who
was in charge and still came through
(despite 30" of standing water in her
driveway from our recent flood!).

B J Cotton Bol


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, April 16, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Jannie has finished
the most beautiful Log Cabin Star
quilt and what a treasure. B J has
finished a Cotton Bol wall hanging
and Betty has finished a Bear Baby
Quilt. Pat has almost finished an-
other wall hanging.
Lunch was delicious. We had fried
chicken, corn fritters; sweet potatoes,
cheese grits, fish sticks, creamed po-


tatoes, macaroni salad, spinach dip
with crackers, coconut cake, Betty's
cherry pie, lemon bars and much
much more.
I want to thank everyone for their
prayers, cards, calls, and visits to
see how I'm doing since I broke my
wrist. It is healing. I can use it but I
still have to be careful. In all of my
84 years .this is the first time to have a
broken bone. Thank you everyone.

ects, and one completed Round Rob-
