David Still
By Carrie A. Mizell
When Governor Charlie Crist
signed Senate Bill 2080 into law on
June 30 he gave the executive direc-
tors of Florida's five water manage-
ment districts the power to approve
or deny water use permits.
Conservationists throughout the
state thought Crist would veto SB
2080 simply because the new bill
takes the power away from water
management governing boards, who
up until now have had all water use
permits come before them in public
hearings for approval or denial.
According to SB 2080, the five
water management district managers
will consider each permit and if they
approve it then that is the end of 'the
story; only if they deny the permit
will it go before the water manage-
ment's district governing board. At
that time the public will have an op-
portunity to comment.
On the local level Gilchrist County
Administrator Ron McQueen ex-
pressed concern over SB 2080 and its
potential effect on Gilchrist County's
resources.
"We have always felt like we've
had a local voice on the governing
board who would look our for us,"
McQueen said. "We're concerned
about all the information, coming in.
We may have access to water, but all
the information coming in says we
don't have as much as we think we
do."

After 20 years, Trenton native retires from the military


By Carrie A. Mizell
Just because he retired from the
U.S. Air Force on July 2 after 20
years of service to this country does
not mean that Trenton native Chad
Vann would not put on his uniform
again if the United States were ever
threatened.
"I got to spend 20 years in the de-
fense of freedom, democracy, and the
American way of life," Vann said.
"I served with, over and under the
best and brightest this nation has to
offer. I served the greatest boss and
customer in the world, the American
taxpayer."
The 1988 Trenton High School
graduate said that during his mili-
tary career he always tried to give his
best, as American taxpayers expect
and deserve no less that his absolute
best.
"I am proud to have been a part of a
proud heritage of warrior; past, pres-
ent and future," Vann said. "I have
retired, but if freedom, liberty and
the American way of life are threat-
ened, if my country asks for my help,
I would gladly lace'em back up and
pick up my weapons once again and
go into harm's way for my country."
Following his retirement ceremony
held July 2 on Andrews Air Force
Base in Maryland, Vann said he has
mixed emotions regarding his retire-
ment.
The husband and father of two
sons, ages 10 and 5, said that he
wanted to stay in the military and
continue molding, teaching and men-
toring young military minds, but his
need to be, with his family 365 days a
year outweighed his wants.
"I wanted to deploy in.support of
the ongoing War on Terror again,"
Vann said. "However, I needed to get
back to my family. If I would have
stayed in, I would have had to stay
at Andrews [Air Force Base in Mary-
land] another year, away from my
family [who live in Nebraska]."
Ultimately, Vann said that when
he sits back and looks at everything
now, and takes it all in context, it was
time to retire.
"Everything is going well; I am
just trying to re-adjust after being
separated from Sheri and the kids for
three years," Vann said. "While I was
in D.C. they stayed in Omaha."
Vann had been stationed at An-
drews Air Force Base, which is home
to Air Force One, since 2006.
"When I got the assignment, Sheri
and I decided it was in our family's
best interest for them to stay in Ne-


Gilchrist County Journal is taking a
proactive stand to help offset costs to
local teachers and students by pro-
viding school supplies for the 2009-
2010 school year.
According to Carrie Mizell, asso-
ciate editor, the newspaper will work
with the Gilchrist County School
District to gather school supplies for
students in need.
Beginning Friday, July 17, a col-
lection box will be set up inside the
Gilchrist County Journal office, lo-
cated at 207 North Main Street in
Trenton.
School supplies will be collected
for students entering kindergarten
through high school this fall at Tren-
ton and Bell schools.
Local businesses and community
members are asked to please donate
school supplies. Pencils, pens, note-
books, glue, crayons and backpacks
are just a sampling of the items being
accepted.
The collection will end on Thurs-
day, Aug. 13. All school supplies
collected will be evenly distributed
between Trenton Elementary School,
Bell Elementary School, Trenton
Middle-High School and Bell Mid-
dle-High School.
Don't forget, school will start back
for Gilchrist County students on
Monday, Aug. 17.

braska," Vann said.
For Vann it was all based on his
sense of being a part of something that
was bigger than himself. He credits
his Trenton High School coaches for
teaching him a sense of participating,
training, sacrifice and dedication for
the greater good of the team.
"They taught me that the team was
only as strong as the weakest link,
much like any military organization,"
Vann said.
Specifically, Vann said his key in-
fluences were coaches Richard Ken-
nedy, Tommy Malloy, Bill Wiles,
'John Vickers and. David Campbell.
Vann also said he got tremendous
support from his teachers at Trenton,
though he credits his family as his
biggest influence.
"Without their love, support and
dedication there is absolutely no way
I would be where I am today," Vann
said. "I owe them more than I could
ever repay in ten lifetimes."
After graduating from THS, Vann,
who is the son of Gail and the late
R.T. Vann, worked at Publix for a
year and also at WCWB doing eve-


Vann
thing radio and color commentary for'
high school sports. In March 1989 he
went into the delayed enlistment pro-
gram-and onAug. 24, 1989 he left for
basic training in San Antonio, Texas.
"They gave me a ticket and put me
on a plane from Jacksonville to San
Antonio with a connection through
Dallas," Vann recalled. "It was the
first tine I had ever flown on a com-
mercial airline. I was wide eyed and
scared to death!"
Unlike most people, Vann said he
had a great time at basic training.
In retrospect he said it was a mental
game more than anything else. Upon
graduation, Vann went to Keesler Air
Force Base in Biloxi, Mississippi for
technical training.
"The biggest thing I remember
from there was that I graduated and
my mom and brother picked me up
in December during the huge Storm
of the Century," Vann said. "It took
us forever to get back home because
it was snowing in the panhandle. The
roads were a mess and the state did
not have proper equipment to clean
the interstate."


4-H County Council officers fror the 2009-2010 year are: back row,
Brittany McDaniel, Brittany Akin, Donna Owens and Krystina
Thompson.. Front row, Chandler Ash, Kailey Roux and Cassie Prid-
geon.

4-H Council elects officers


By Kailey Roux
On June 22, 2009 the Gilchrist
County 4-H council held its official
business meeting.
President Brittany McDaniel pre-
sided over the meeting. The first item
of business consisted of discussing
the upcoming 4-H camps and the of-
ficial end of the year banquet. The
main item of business was election of
officers for the upcoming year. The


officers elected for 2009-2010 were
President-Cassie Pridgeon, Vice
President-Brittany Akin, Secretary-
Krystina Thompson, Reporter/Histo-
rian-Kailey Roux, Parliamentarian-
Chandler Ash, and District Delegate-
Donna Owens. The new officers will
be officially installed at the county
4-H banquet. After elections, there
was no further business so the meet-
ing was adjourned.


Vann's first duty station was Chey-
enne Air Force Base in Colorado
Springs, Colorado. While there, Vann
worked on the system that provided
early detection of missile launches
for the North American continent.
The Cold War was still going on
and it was a serious job during that
time. Additionally, Vann said he pro-
vided early detection of Scud missile
launches during the first Gulf War/
Operation Desert Storm.
While stationed in Colorado
Springs, Vann said he managed to
track down Timrek Heisler who was
a 1987 graduate from Chiefland. He
was attending the Air Force Acad-
emy at the time. Vann said they got
together on the weekends and during
the summer to watch football, play
golf and cookout.
"I think it was good for both of us
to have someone from back home
to talk to," Vann said. "Incidentally,
Timrek is now a Lt. Col. and is sta-
tioned at Andrews. We had lunch the
week before I retired."
In March 1992, Vann reported to
Howard Air Force Base in Panama.
While there he worked on the system
that was responsible for tracking the
movement of all airlifted cargo and
personnel in and out of Central and
South America. He was also selected
as a three-time member of the All Air
Force Football Team.
The Air Force re-assigned Vann to
Offutt Air Force Base in Bellevue,
Nebraska in April 1994. While there,
Vann was- assigned to the Alternate
Missile Warning Center as a shift su-
pervisor, the most junior of all shift
supervisors. His team was named
"Crew of the Month" nine times dur-
ing one 12-month period.
In August 1996 Vann was re-as-
signed to Howard Air Force Base,
this time as a shift supervisor in
the Base Network Control Center.
While at Howard, Vann was selected
as a member of the Base Aggressor
Team.
"Aggressor team acts as the bad
guys during exercises to include hos-
tage taking, perimeter defense pen-
etration, planting simulated explo-
sives, and simulating criminal as well
as hostile activity against American
Forces," Vann explained. "This was
very exciting as it included jungle
operations training, as well as op-
portunities to train with members of
the Los Angeles S.W.A.T. Team and
various units throughout the base."
While stationed in Panama, Vann
came home on leave in August 1997
and married the love of his, life,
Sheri. After their honeymoon, Sheri
returned to Omaha, Nebraska, and
Vann returned to Panama to serve an-
other year.
In August 1998 Vann once again


reported to Offutt Air Force. Base
in Nebraska, 'this time working for
United States Strategic Command
(STRATCOM).
Chad and Sheri' welcomed their
son Blake in 1999, and later in 2004
their son Brady was born.
Vann said' he was assigned to
US�TRATCOM during the , same
time period as Rear Admiral David
"Deke" Philman, a Bell native. Vanns
said, he spoke with Philman several
times.
"He is a fantastic leader," Vann
.said. "His secretary and he were not
sure who I was, but when I mentioned
Trenton and Gilchrist County he
'knew it was someone from home."
In 2006, when Vann was re-as-
signed to Andrews Air Force Base he
worked for the 89th Communications
Squadron. Vann's first job was as the
'Systems Administration NCOIC for
the High Frequency Global Com-
munications System. This system is
responsible for broadcasting infor-
mation to United States and Coali-
tion aircraft in real time around the
globe. In February 2007, Vann was
handpicked to move over to a new
roll as the NCOIC of Information As-
surance/Computer Network Defense
for the Government Network Opera-
tions Center (GNOC). The GNOC
provides airborne connectivity for
the nation's leaders (to include the
President/Air Force One, Vice Presi-
dent, Secretary of State, Secretary of
Defense, The Chairman of the Joint
Chiefs, and others) while they travel.
Then in April 2007, Vann deployed
to Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq in
support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
While at Victory, Vann worked for
the XVIII Airborne Corps, out of Ft.
Bragg, North Carolina.
"I enjoyed working for the Army,"
Vann said. "While there we were
responsible for providing, and track-
ing communications connectivity
throughout the entire country. This
included providing intelligence feeds
and radio support to troops on the
ground performing active operations/
missions."
While in the military Vann was pre-
sented with numerous major awards
including: Meritorious Service Med-
al, Joint Service Commendation Med-
al, Air Force Commendation Medal,
Joint Service Achievement Medal 1

McQueen said that while the Su-
wannee River Water, Management
District has always had a good ex-
ecutive director, he questions what
will happen in the future if an execu-
tive director who is not looking out
for the best interest of this district is
appointed by the governor.
"Our fear in North Florida is that
South Florida doesn't understand that
we want to preserve our resources,"
McQueen said. "They have already
lost there's and if they get ours then
there will be none left."
The county administrator also said
that public comment should not be
taken out of the process.
Suwannee River Water Manage-
ment District Executive Director Da-
vid Still and Governing Board mem-
ber Don Quincey were contacted by
the Gilchrist County Journal for com-
ment on this issue, but neither had re-
turned phone calls at press time.

leave, I am very excited about the op-

perience and I'm eager to take on the
challenge," she said.
Patrick Allen, previously assistant
administrator for the Gainesville
team, has been named administra-
tor of the Chiefland team. "I'm from
Chiefland and I have close family in

about the plastic cover over the swim-'
.ming pool at Otter Springs. People re-
ported that the smell of chlorine from
the pool-and the heat from inside the
plastic cover made being inside the
enclosure very uncomfortable.
The board asked Otter Springs
Park Manager, Nancy Nieman, if the
plastic cover could be removed from
the pool enclosure.
Nieman told the board that leaving
the plastic on the east side of the pool
enclosure would reduce the dust and
dirt that would blow into the pool en-
closure from the road passing by the
pool area.
Ron McQueen, Gilchrist County
Administrator, told the board that the
duck weed on top of the water was
beginning to flow out of the springs
area and would clear up soon.
The board asked, Nancy Nieman
to have the plastic removed from the
pool enclosure to allow the smells to
escape. The board also discussed re-
ceiving bids to have the Otter Springs
Lodge air-conditioned in the near fu-
ture.
McQueen also told the board that
the county road from CR 232 into Ot-
ter Springs was being prepared to be
paved.

Personality of the Month


Submitted
"Order is the life of business and
life itself." "Good order is the foun-
dation of all good things." "Having
order brings safety." "To him who
orders his life aright, God shows His
strength." "All of the aforementioned
quotes are part and parcel to a person
who demonstrates the leadership per-
spective of being an organizer.
Organization is the theme for July
as the Character Council continues to
keep before the public's eye the ne-
cessity of teaching and learning what
moral character stands for.
An organizer is one who visualizes
final results and directs resources for
the successful completion of goals.
An organizer not only orders his/her
life with particular short and long-
term goals in mind, but encourages
others to do the same.
This month the Character Coun-
cil of Gilchrist County wishes to
highlight its personality, Mrs. Joan
Vaughan, manager of the Vaughan
Chiropractic Office..
She wears many hats, one of which
is being the awesomely available, as
needed, grandmother to her daughter,
Julie's children.
Vaughan feels that without organi-
zational skills she could not complete
in a day what needs to be done for the
people she wishes to help.
Originally from Illinois, her family
moved to Florida when she was two
years old, which makes Mrs. Vaughan
a "semi-native."
She grew up in Davie, went to
school and married there. In 1997,
just after making the decision to retire
her position as a practicing registered
nurse, Vaughan and her husband,
Bob, moved from south Florida, and
began again with a new life in Tren-
ton.
This lively lady loves to speak of
the times afforded her to help people,

but one way she feels is so necessary
is to reach their hearts by teaching
them the necessity of being orga-
nized so that goals can be reached.
She says that "...when a person is not
organized, it simply takes longer to
get things done.
Being prepared, planning ahead,
using common sense, and remember-
ing that there's a place for everything
and everything has its place...." are
terms of which Vaughan consistently
reminds herself:
An organizer allows him/herself to
be used as an instrument of action,
by pulling together a "body" of like-
minded people in a suitable manner
for good service or completion of a
goal.
In conclusion, we find that within
the confines of this beloved county of
ours, we all have been blessed with a
greatness of skills, talents and gifts,
which make this place, our place,
such a wonderful place to live, work,
worship and serve.
Therefore, the next time you think
of our community as a whole, think
of the multitude of small delights we
have, which contributes to our happi-
ness here.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


,A United States Senate Judiciary
committee opened the first hearings
on Monday to consider President
Obama's nomination of Sonia Soto-
mayor to the United States Supreme
Court. Their decision involving the
outcome could have a long reach-
ing impact on the future of the laws
that we live by in the United States
of America. If this country wants a
change, well, we can get ready for the
onslaught and the long-range affects
of this confirmation.
' On Sunday afternoon I listened to
several different television news cov-
erage programs as the media identi-
fied details and discussed the back-
ground of Sonia Sotomayor.
This nominee has been involved
in years of legal work serving on the
Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Edu-
cational committees from 1980-1992.
During this period of time this group
filed a brief with the U.S. Supreme
Court to argue in favor of abortion
and to have the federal government
fund abortion. This same group op-
posed the death penalty as well as


Now

By Carrie

Sweet and juicy watermelon along
with the pop and crackle of fireworks
are not the only signals of summer.
Vacation Bible School is also a high-
ly anticipated week-long event for
many local children looking to catch
up with their friends and exhaust a
little built up energy.
Just the thought of VBS brings back
memories of hot, humid nights, Kool-
Aid mustaches and brightly decorat-
ed noodle necklaces. I can remember
being bored out of my mind during
the long summer days. As a kid, the
promise of spending three hours each
evening for a week learning about Je-
sus through Bible stories, boisterous
songs and skits was literally the big-
gest ticket in town and hands down
"the" event of the summer.
Not to mention that every little
friend I had was also at Bible School.
It was there that we compared sun-
burns, vacation stories (or in my case,
lack of a vacation) and gold stars for
who could remember the key Bible
verses each night.
Heaven, y'all, Bible School was
heaven on earth for this freckle faced
little girl!
It wasn't until late elementary
school that I heard about several kids
who were trucked from one church's
VBS to the next nearly every week
of the summer. I was so jealous when
I heard this big revelation! I wanted
so badly to join in the fun! Up un-
til then I had no idea children were
"allowed" to take each church's
VBS theme to heart, dressing the


compared abortion restrictions to that
of slavery. The Puerto Rican Legal
Defense group also supported the
abortion rights group NOW and other
extreme groups such as ACORN.
This nominee has been involved as
legal counsel in some cases represent-
ing Hispanics' views involving pres-
ent laws. I am sure this appointee is
an outstanding attorney, but I feel that
her confirmation to this bench will
put her in a position to unfairly rule
in favor of the organizations that she
has represented for so many years.
A Supreme Court Judges need to
be unbiased and base their decisions
on the law and the issues involving
the case.
Mathew D. Staver said it best,
"The American people want justice
to be administered by judges who are
neutral umpires - not activist policy-
makers." Mathew Staver is the Dean
of Liberty University School of Law.
This country is changing, but the
direction I feel we are headed is not
the best for our future or our chil-
dren.

part, learning the songs and making
the popsicle stick crafts. Sadly, my
parents did not think J and I needed
more than one VBS each summer, so
we were confined to Vacation Bible
School at First Baptist Church of
Trenton, which was just fine up un-
til I heard we could attend everyone
else's as well. I wanted, no, make that
needed the social interaction, all the
vanilla cream cookies I could eat and
of course, the Bible study!
It is estimated that some 180,000
churches in the United States host
Vacation Bible School each year. Of
those, Lifeway, which provides edu-
cational materials to southern Baptist
churches, reported in 2002 that total
VBS enrollment was just over 3.2
million, with almost 110,000 kids
making the decision to accept Jesus
Christ as their savior through VBS.
While it may be cherry Kool-Aid
and clever themes that draw children
to Vacation Bible School each year,
clearly the message of God's love is
being presented.

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


Ok, I will admit that I have been
a bit critical of the auction carried
out each year for a lunch with War-
ren Buffett. Two years ago the lucky
winner submitted a bid of $650,100.
Last year's winner, Mr. Zhao Dan-
yang, who dined with Buffet on June
24, paid a record $2.1 million for the
privilege, while the current winner,
just announced, had a winning bid of
$1,680,300.
If you contribute six or seven fig-
ures to charity, you are to be com-
mended. Yet, I have always had this
uneasy feeling that the lunch winners
hoped to gain more than just the good
feeling that comes from donating of
a substantial chunk of disposable in-
come to a worthwhile cause.
Surely anyone successful enough to
have amassed the resources required
for such generosity must realize that
Buffett is not about to let slip some
tidbit of information that would put
him in violation of the full disclosure
rule. Furthermore, any expectation of
uncovering some previously undis-
closed key to Buffett's prodigious in-
vestment skill would be naive to the
point of ridiculous.
Buffett does not harbor some holy
grail. He simply uses a modicum of
common sense, backed by solid fun-
damental analysis and a very large
piggy bank that enables him to deftly
put in place a desired investment
with little fanfare and no need of fi-
nancing.
Every year in his annual letter to
shareholders, Buffett reports his
holdings, discusses their merits and
shortcomings, and details why they
were selected. A number of web sites
offer stock screens using Buffett's in-
vestment criteria. And his investment
methodology and selection criteria
have been the subject of countless
books and articles.
Yet, I have been taken to task re-
peatedly for being narrow minded and
directing supposedly humorous wit
to cast disparaging annotations upon
those "good hearted philanthropists."
The implication being that I was too
dense to see unadulterated idolatry at
its finest. Isn't there a phrase: some-
where that refers to "worshiping false
idols?"
Some readers struck a really low
blow, stating that nobody would pay


Dead Faith And Faith Justified - Part 2
(Kent Heaton)
Last week we looked at faith that was invalid or dead. God, not of works, lest anyone should boast" (Ephesians
James 2:17 & 26 tells us there is such a thing as dead faith. 2:8-9). Also in 2 Timothy 1:9, "Who has saved us and
Faith that is little, trembling, without works and faith alone called us with a holy calling, not according to our works,
is a dead faith. "But without faith it is. impossible to please but according to His own purpose and grace which was
Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, given to us in Christ Jesus before time began" (2 Timothy
and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek 1:9).
Him" (Hebrews 11:6). Thanks be to God that faith justified Obedient faith is required to be justified before God.
is a saving faith. Paul writes in Romans 5:1, "Therefore, Obedient faith is exemplified by Abraham as the Hebrew
having been justified'by faith, we have peace with God writer illustrates. "By faith Abraham obeyed when he was
through our Lord Jesus Christ" (Romans 5:1). This is the called to go out to the place which he would receive as an
kind of faith that saves us and makes us whole before God. . inheritance. And he. went out, not knowing where he was
Faith justified is like the faith of the centurion in going. By faith he dwelt in the land of promise as in a
Matthew 8:5-13. He had come to Jesus to heal his servant, foreign country, dwelling in tents with Isaac and Jacob,


When Jesus said he would come and heal him the centurion
only ask for Jesus to speak a word to heal his servant. Jesus
replied, "Assuredly, I say to you, I have not found such
great faith, not even in Israel!" (Matthew 8:10). This kind
'of great faith was exemplified by the gentile woman in
Matthew 15:28. Having faith that will move mountains
(Matthew 17:20) is a justified faith.
Many people deny that works saves and yet James writes
that faith is made perfect by works. "Was not Abraham our
father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on
the altar? Do you see that faith was working together with
his works, and by works faith was made perfect?" (James
2:21-22). Faith justified is faith justified by works (James
2:18). Paul described it as "faith working through love" in
Galatians 5:6. Saving faith is illustrated by Paul in
Ephesians 2:8-9. "For by grace you have been saved
through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of


the heirs with him of the same promise" (Hebrews 11:8-9).
The faith of Abraham was further tested when God
instructed him to offer up Isaac as an offering (Genesis 22)
and he obeyed. "By faith Abraham, when he was tested,
offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises
offered up his only begotten son" (Hebrews 11:17). James
uses the same story to show how faith is justified. "Was not
Abraham our father justified by works when he offered
Isaac his son' on the altar? Do you see' that faith was
working together with his works, and by works faith was
made perfect?" (James 2:21-22).
Faith saves us and justifies us before the Father when it
is the right kind of faith. We must have "faith toward God"
(Hebrews 6:1) to have a faith justified. Faith saves us when
it is the right kind of faith. Next week we will examine
works that are dead and works that justify us.

a dollar to have lunch with me. Actu-
ally, I am not sure I would pay a dol-
lar to have lunch with me. However,
in self-defense I have raised thou-
sands of dollars for various charities
and other non-profit organizations
through countless talks and appear-
ances pro bono public.
So was I overly cynical? After 40
years on Wall Street, I find it difficult
to believe in altruism. Ego and puff-
ery run rampant and there is an insa-
tiable desire for personal profit. That
is the Wall Street I know.
Remember Sanford Weill, the
former CEO of the now infamous
Citigroup? He lined the walls lead-
ing to his office with self-adulating
copies of articles, each heralding his
genius. Barron's, a respected busi-
ness weekly, once wrote that on Wall
Street success or failure is measured
only by how much money you make
or lose. Does any of this have a fa-
miliar ring?
All of this brings. us to Mr. Zhao
Danyang and my redemption. It
seems- that a day before the lunch,
Mr. Zhao told the media he would of-
fer Mr. Buffett a stock tip of his own:
a little-known Chinese retailer, called
WuMart.
"I didn't want to influence the
market," Mr. Zhao, told the New
York Times. "It was just a tip from
a friend."
Of course it was. And it was sim-
ply a coincidence that even before
Mr. Zhao arrived for lunch, shares of
WuMart were climbing. By the time
he returned to China, the shares were
up 25 percent and Danyang's hold-
ings in WuMart (which he insists will
someday be China's Wal-Mart) were
worth an additional $16 million.

COOKING AND CARRYING ON
By Cindy Jo Ayers


It seems to me the world is go-
ing a little crazy. Maybe I should
say our country seems to be going a
little crazy, with a bailout here and a
bailout'there. More money than I can
even wrap my mind around has been
spent in the last six months to fix our
economic problems. Problems that
I might add were caused by one big
problem that many Americans have...
greed. We buy houses, cars, and all
sorts of motorized play toys. like jet
skis and 4-wheelers that we cannot
afford. Our credit card debt is huge
and much more than a lot of families
can afford to pay off. The folks on
Wall Street and the big bankers are
way too greedy also.
Union members and the union
leaders never seem to get enough,and
that hasn't helped either. If they are
being paid $40 an hour, they will de-
mand $42 the next year. They have
pretty much single-handedly run all
the factory jobs overseas with their
unreasonably greedy demands.
Every time I turn around some
politician or another is making some
kind of promise that we can't afford,
just to buy votes and get re-elected.
Many of them seem to care only
about themselves and not the gen-
eral good of all the people that they
serve. They also seem to vote party
lines no matter what the folks back
home ask them to do. I guess listen-
ing to the people back home who put
them in office is not the way the big
game in Washington and Tallahassee
is played now days.
As far as I'm concerned, our coun-
try is in one more mess. When I
watch too much news, it gives me a
major twitch. I can only bring myself
to watch the national news a couple
of times a week these days.
Friday afternoon I made a quick
trip to Gainesville to .return a couple
of items. I parked at Belks and made
my exchanges. By the time I decided
to leave the mall, it was raining cats
and dogs. So I walked down to Pen-
neys and did a little shopping while
waiting for the rain to let up. Finally I
gave up and went to the exit door that
I thought was nearest to my car. I was
standing just outside the door under
the overhang holding two shopping
bags, my drink and a Chic-Fil-A
bag, debating the best way to get to
my car. I wondered if I should take
off my flip-flops and run through the
inch deep water or should I just walk
and get really soaked? A couple who
were smarter than me because they
each had an umbrella walked past me
to enter the door I was standing near.
In less than a minute the gentleman
returned outside and looked me in
the eye and said, "I know this um-
brella is not worth much because it
has two broken spokes, but it might
just keep you dry as you go to your
car." I was almost speechless. What a
nice .surprise. Someone I didn't even
know cared that I would get soaked. I
assured the gentleman that if I could
only borrow it I would pull my car
to the front of the mall and 'return it
to him. He assured me that it wasn't
worth a whole lot because of its con-


So let's do the math: a $16 million
gain in the price of his stock less the
lunch bid plus plane tickets and ho-
tel rooms for family and associates
(somebody had to carry all those an-
nual reports he distributed), produces
a net profit of just under $13.9 mil-
lion. Lao Pi, a blogger who follows


edition and I could just have it. As he
handed me the umbrella handle, he
looked me in the eye and said, "May
God bless you." As he turned to leave
I noticed that he was wearing a De-
partment of Corrections shirt. I'm
sure he must work in the Department
of Corrections office in Gainesville.
Unfortunately, I did not get his name;
but I have to say my faith in mankind
was suddenly restored.
You see I believe that it's not those
greedy people that make our country
great; they unfortunately care only
for themselves. America is great be-
cause every day Americans get up
each morning and go to work; they
get the job done. It's the soldiers serv-
ing our country that make us great. I
believe it's the Bible school teachers,
the hospice volunteers, and the little
elderly ladies who knit sock hats for
newborns in the hospital that make
America great.
I believe it's the thousands of
Americans who do random acts of
kindness like the gentleman who
gave his umbrella away that make
this the best country on the face of
the earth. If I could, I would like to
thank him for restoring my wavering
faith in Americans.

The following recipe was tested
and tested well. I made these brown-
ies last week and took them.to my
quilting group meeting and everyone
liked them. John also gave me the
thumbs up on this very tasty recipe.



(Bottom of pan)
1/3 cup butter
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 1/4 cup shredded coconut
1 cup chopped pecans
(Top layer)
1/2 cup butter, softened , ...
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 eggs
3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup miniature marshnmallows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease a 13x9x2 inch baking pan. In
a small saucepan melt 1/3 cup butter;
stir in 2/3 cup brown sugar, the coco-
nut, and 1 cup pecans. Pat evenly in
the bottom of the pan and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl beat 1/2 cup
butter with an electric mixer on medi-
um to high speed for 30 seconds. Add
1 cup brown sugar, the baking soda
and salt; beat until combined. Beat in
eggs and vanilla until combined. Add
flour and beat until combined. Stir in
1/2 cup pecans and marshmallows.
Spoon over the prepared coconut
mixture. Carefully spread to cover
evenly.
Bake about 20-25 minutes. Brown-
ies should be evenly browned, and
the center may be slightly jiggly
when shaken. Cool in pan on wire
rack. To serve, cut into bars. These
brownies are real good served warm
with vanilla ice cream.

nipulating the media." Mea Culpa.

4-H Hamburger Day
Camp
Summer time means camp time
with Gilchrist County 4-H'ers. A
variety of camps have been offered
to the youth. A group of Gilchrist
County youth had the opportunity to
spend three days at "Hamburger Day
Camp" hosted by Suwannee County
Extension. When we say "hamburg-
er camp" we think about eating a big
juicy hamburger.
The camp began with a visit to the
University of Florida Animal Science
Unit. The youth were able to see the
feedlot where beef starts out, and
then on to the meat processing plant:
It did not stop there; the youth Were
able to visit a tomato farm to see how
tomatoes are grown. What's a ham-
burger without a red juicy tomato?
If you're going to have a hamburger,
you really need a fresh bun. So on to
the Publix bakery to see the process
of making the bun.
The youth also learned about han-
dling food safely, most especially
if you are going to be grilling. As
a culmination activity, the youth of
Gilchrist, Hamilton, and Suwannee
counties enjoyed an afternoon of
'grilling hamburgers." We would
like to extend a special thank you to

Jieart Matters


"But Mom, everyone else is ..."
What parent hasn't heard this plea'?
In fact, according to our teens, no
other kid they know even has a cur-
few, any restrictions, or parents who
are out to ruin their life! As adults,
we may vaguely recall using this line
on our folks... and our parents' stan-
dard response was "So, if everyone
else jumped off the bridge, 1 guess
you would want to do that too!" Case
closed... it was pointless to continue
the discussion.
Since we all have the desire for a
certain quality or a unique talent to
render us valuable, it seems odd that
during the years those talents and
qualities could be discovered and
nurtured, we fight hard to be like ev-
eryone else. Why? The word "iden-
tity" is defined as "the set of behav-
ioral or personal characteristics by
which an individual is recognizable
as a member of a group." In other
words, our children, especially dur-
ing the teen years, are searching to
find out who they are and where they
belong.. .desperately seeking to fit in
with their own generation.
The early generations of God's
children as a nation struggled with
the same identity crisis. In 1 Samuel
8:5, the Bible records their petition to
the prophet Samuel "...now appoint
a king to lead us, such as all the other
nations have." In verses 10-18, Sam-
uel gave the people a host of reasons
why being like everyone else was not
a good thing, but according to verses

Veterans Service News
If you did not receive a high school
diploma and received an honorable
discharge for your Vietnam era mili-
tary service, please read the good
news. The 2009 Florida Legislature
passed the Corporal Larry E. Smed-
ley Vietnam Veterans High School
Diploma Act. This act, effective July
1, 2009, authorizes the Commissioner
of Education to award a high school
diploma to honorably discharged
Vietnam War veterans and increases
,the opportunity for some Florida vet-
erans to receive a high school diplo-
ma. Senate Bill 316, Chapter 2009-


19-20: "... the people refused to lis-
ten to Samuel "No!" they said. "We
want a king over us. Then we will be
like all the other nations, with a king
to lead us and to go out before us and
fight our battles." (italics mine)
Was their desire for a king wrong?
1 don't believe so...God indeed had
a plan for Israel to have a king...a
man after his own heart...but that's
a later story. It was their motive that
missed the mark. According to Le-
viticus 20:26, God had called Israel
to be a holy nation, separate from and
unique among all other people. In
searching for their identity by trying
to be like everyone else, they missed
the distinctive purpose that was in-
tended for them!
As parents, part of our job is to help
our children understand this concept.
Too often we say yes to our kids be-
cause we are tired of struggling with
them, or maybe we don't want them
to be left out. Or, perhaps we have
the strength to say no, but we don't
finish our task by helping them see
the options they can say yes to, leav-
ing them frustrated and angry. Our
children have not traveled the road
of life as we have; and they need
our wisdom, maturity and courage
to make good decisions today and
for their future. It is our responsibil-
ity to encourage and convince them
of their special and unique identity,
so that the reality of being like "ev-
eryone else" is made clear...because
their hearts matter!

Kids discover Shell
Mound
It has been proven that getting
outside is great for the soul and our
health. When we'look closer, it is the
children who are showing a prepon-
derance of ill health. The National
Wildlife Refuge System and its Visi-
tor Services Rangers are planning
more outdoor activities for kids, like
the Kids with Cameras program at
the Lower Suwannee National Wild-
life Refuge (NWR) and the latest en-
deavor, Discover Shell Mound.
With the donation of real river
clay from Henry and Amy Gem-
hardt, owners of Cedar Key Pottery,
kids were able to learn the ancient
coil method and make pots of their
own. But not before they climbed
the mound and learned about its early
inhabitants and builders. Primitive-
technology isn't taught in school, nor
are the lifeways of the ancient "shell
cultures" who raised their families,
fished, and traded along the nature
coast.
With paintings of Florida's Lost
Tribes by Theodore Morris, Ranger
Pam (Darty) stimulated the imagina-
tion of the twelve kids eager to learn.
She shared pieces of cultural objects
or artifacts, both ancient and contem-
porary: pottery shards, spear points,
Seminole-dolls, Southeastern pottery
replicas, and cultural music.
After learning that the rich estu-
ary around Shell Mound provided
most of the foods eaten back then,

Bolts Season comes to a close


By Jason Johnson
The beginning of May marked the
beginning of a magical allstar season
for the eight and under rookie ball
Bolts of SVL. No one knew at that
time that the team of six Bell boys
and six Trenton boys would go on to
set records and raise the bar for future
rookie ball teams.
It did not take long, however, to re-
alize the talent of the young group of
boys. As the season began, the Bolts
began decimating opponent after op-
ponent in friendly scrimmages and
tune up tournaments.
The team's potential was realized
when the Bolts defeated their region-
al rival Branford in the championship
game to win the Branford Invitation-
al. After a few more scrimmages in
which the Bolts remained undefeated
and bested all opponents, most by
the ten run rule, the SVL rookie ball
allstar team was on their way to the
Lake City Qualifier.
That tournament kicked off with
a battle between the Bolts and Clay
County. The Bolts had to adjust to
a slightly speedier pitching machine
and used their bunting technique to
secure runs while getting a feel for
the timing in the process.
Within a couple of innings the
Bolts were swinging the bats adeptly
and went on to win the game with a
final score of 7-5.
Defense was the name of the game
for game two as they bested Lake
City in extra innings with a score of
9-7.
Union County was the next to fall
as the Bolts claimed the lead and
maintained the lead to a 7-2 romp of
their opponent.


With Lake City behind them the
Bolts prepared to move on to the State
Tournament in Palm Beach Gardens,'
a feat that had yet to be accomplished
by an SVL rookie ball team. As all-
star pitcher Bryson Johnson stated,
"We made history!"
The Bolts went into fundraising
mode in an attempt to absorb hotel
costs for the team. The community
of Gilchrist and the surrounding area
rallied around the young boys. Busi-
nesses and individuals alike gave
freely and helped financially to allow
the young boys to achieve a once in a
lifetime experience.
The Bolts faced Sarasota in their
first game, and both the coaches and
players had trouble adjusting to the
new level of play. They left six runs
stranded and handed Sarasota seven
of their ten runs on errors. Sarasota
defeated the Bolts 10-2. For the first
time in the season SVL tasted defeat,
and they handled it well. They faced
it with chins up and lost with the same
great attitude that they had grown ac-
customed to winning with.
Coach Jim Akins put it best with
his statement, "Be proud boys. Look
how far we had to come to find a team-
that could beat us!"
With something to prove, the next
day was decidedly different. The
Bolts took the diamond and never re-
linquished control to MAA Mayhem.
With great defense and an outstand-
ing offensive attack the Bolts went on
to win 10-4.
A win over Ponte Vedra could have
promoted the Bolts to the champion-
ship round. Alas, it was not to be as
Ponte Vedra rallied in the final inning
and took the Bolts 8-7.

Incidentally, MAA went on to be-

beaten by one team, and that team
was the MIGHTY BOLTS.
Daniel Plank, allstar first baseman,
went 4 for 8 with an RBI. Colton
Rawlins, right center, went 3 for 8
with 2 RBls. Daveion Love, short-
stop, went 5 for 8 with 2 RBIs. Trev-
en Dukes, third baseman, went 3 for 8
with 4 RBIs. Terek Liles, right field-
er, went 3 for 8 with 2 RBIs. Logan
Akins, catcher, went 2 for 7. Brayden
Dukes, left center, went I for 7 with
2 RBIS. Sammy Loveday, left field,
went 4 for 7 with an RBI. Brandon
Douglas, right center, went 3 for 7.
Colton Hastings, pitcher, went 3 for
6 with an RB1. Cole Hafner, second
baseman, went 4 for 6 with 2 RBIs.
A hearty thanks goes forth to the
coaches, players, parents and com-
munity. Without the effort and sup-
port of all those involved, the season
would have had a much different re-
sult. Thank you again for a success-
ful and fun season.

Mrs. Ruth Akins
Mrs. Ruth Akins

Ruth (Sayler) Akins of Bell passed
away on Thursday, July 9. She was
bom on May 12, 1941 in Freeman,
South Dakota. She was the second
of five children born to Ruben and
Martha Sayler. Her siblings include
Roland Sayler, Violet Kom, Marion
Auch and Ramona Hoff.
She was preceded in death by her
son, Russell; her father, Ruben Say-
ler; and her mother, Martha Sayler.

dren on December 2, 1964, Scott Al-
len. Her second son, Russell Leonard

Magdalena, Ruth's baby girl, joined

WalMart Foundation
commits grant to
improve emergency
preparedness
The Walmart Foundation has made
a $500,000 grant to further the work
of the National Organization on Dis-
ability's (N.O.D.) Emergency Pre-
paredness Initiative (EPI). N.O.D.
is nationally recognized amongst
emergency managers and the dis-
ability community as the only cross-
disability organization with a fully
dedicated emergency preparedness
program and personnel experienced
in emergency management and dis-
ability issues.
The grant from the Walmart Foun-
dation will support EPI's mission to
ensure that the needs of the 54 mil-
lion men, women, and children with
disabilities - one-fifth of the U.S.
population - are taken into account
in emergency planning and response.
EPI's outreach, education and aware-
ness efforts aim to position people
with disabilities as a central com-
ponent of emergency preparedness
plans at all levels, while also enmur-

ing that people with disabilities take
steps to prepare themselves.
"We are honored to receive this
grant from the Walmart Foundation,"
said Carol Glazer, N.O.D. President.
"The aftermath of September llth
exposed an obvious vacuum in the
emergency preparedness universe.
We created EPI to address the criti-
cal need to educate a wide range of
audiences about how to successfully
implement emergency procedures for
people with disabilities. With the help
of generous funding from organiza-
tions like Walmart we can continue
to expand our work and build on our
success."
"At Walmart, helping communities
is what we do every day, and when a
crisis strikes, that charge becomes an
even greater priority," said Margaret
McKenna, president of the Walmart
Foundation. "Our recent grant to the
National Organization on Disability is
evidence of our commitment to sup-
porting .local disaster relief efforts.
We are proud to support the expan-
sion and growth of this program."
The grant from the Walmart Foun-
dation will enable EPI to: ,
*Revise and improve educational
and training materials;
*Reach out to more states, counties
and localities;
*Expand its network of advocacy
organizations;
*Increase its outreach activities for
people with disabilities; and
*Increase awareness nationwide on
this critical issue.
EPI has worked to bridge the di-
vide between the disability and emer-
gency preparedness communities
through its award-winning "Partners
in Preparation" outreach campaign,
the establishment of the first-ever
disability-preparedness "Technical
Assistance, Outreach and Education
Center" and individual-level training
on preparedness for 4,500 people in
Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi,
among other programs.
,EPI's work and the need for its ex-
pertise were highlighted during the
response to Hurricane Katrina, when
EPI deployed teams to the region to
perform an unprecedented special-
needs assessment in a live disaster
zone. EPI's work following Hurri-
cane Katrina influenced legislative
changes in the Post-Katrina Reform
Act, including the establishment of a
National Disability Coordinator posi-
tion at FEMA.
In 2006, the Department of Home-
land Security's Nationwide Plan Re-
view revealed that no state or large
metropolitan area had emergency
plans in place to adequately address
the needs of people with disabilities.
In its assessment of disability issues
in the immediate aftermath of Hurri-
cane Katrina, EPI's team found that
85.7 percent of community-based
service providers for senior citizens
and people with disabilities did not
know how to access the emergency
management system before the disag-
ter.
"Emergency preparedness for the
disabled concerns all Americans, be-
cause anyone can join the disability
community in an instant," said Hil-
ary Styron, EPI National Director.
"While we have come a long way in
the past few years, the fact remains
that individuals with disabilities and
special needs are still the country's.
most vulnerable population for emer-
gency preparedness. We're pleased
that the Walmart Foundation has rec-
ognized this need with its generous
grant, which will help us expand the
'reach and effectiveness of our pro-
gram."


FWC acts to rebuild
Gulf red snapper stocks
The Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC) voted
to adjust the recreational harvest sea-


son for red snapper in Gulf of Mexico
state waters to account for over-har-
vests in 2008. The Commission took
this action after receiving support
from several fishing groups and con-
servation organizations at its public
hearing in Crystal River.
The National Marine Fisheries
Service has estimated that recreation-
al fishers in the Gulf exceeded last
year's annual red snapper catch limit
by about 1.2 million pounds. A fed-
eral law requires that harvest levels
must be reduced in the year follow-
ing a previous year's overharvest.
Consequently, the NMFS short-
ened the recreational red snapper
harvest season in Gulf federal waters
(beyond nine nautical miles from
shore) from June 1 through Sept. 30
to June 1 through Aug. 14. The FWC
has now approved the same season


change for state waters.
"Shortening the fishing season will
reduce the harvest of Gulf red snapper
in the short term and help rebuild the
fishery's population so that anglers
can enjoy better red snapper fishing
in the future," said FWC Chairman
Rodney Barreto.

Trenton commission demands

animal control service without

A group of Chad Vann's family traveled from Gilchrist County to Maryland to attend his retirement ceremony. Pictured from left: Tiffany
Turner (Chad's cousin-in-law), Gail Vann (Chad's mother), Sheri Vann (Chad's wife), Blake Vann (Chad's son), Brady Vann (Chad's son),
Chad Vann, Heather Turner (Chad's cousin), Patsy Turner (Chad's aunt) and Ruby Browning (Chad's cousin).

After 20 years, Trenton native retires from the military
Continued from page 1


the Air Force Expeditionary Service
Ribbon with Gold Border.
Wisdom that Vann has carried with
him throughout his career came from
a meeting he had with Command
Sergeant Major William J. Gainey.
He was the first Enlisted Advisor to
the Chairman of The Joint Chiefs of
Staff.
Vann recalled, CSM Gainey
walked in the room. and said "I am
here to tell you today that you have
three priorities in your life. The first
is your God; whoever or whatever
that may be. The second is your fam-
ily. And third and lastly, is your job!
Now you're thinking, did I hear the
Sergeant Major right? Did he really
say that? Yes I did! If you have your
spiritual health then that allows you
to take care of #2 and if #1 and #2 are
good to go, then that will allow you
totake care of #3!"
"I found a lot of wisdom and truth
in that simple statement," Vann said.
"I found through 20 years of service


that if you attack problems, issues,
and tasks with motivation and a can
do attitude while working towards an
end goal, then some great things can
and will happen."
Right now, Vann said he is get-
ting settled back in, but he will begin
looking for a new job in a couple of
weeks. Currently, he is on terminal
leave until Sept. 1.
"I will still be associated with the
military as either a contractor or a
government civilian employee."
The Vanns will celebrate 12 years
of marriage in August; four of those
years were spent apart due to his mil-
itary obligations.
At this time, Vann said his family
plans to continue living in Nebraska
for a couple more years before start-
ing to look for the right opportunity
to move back to Florida.
The proud father said that both his
boys love baseball and the outdoors.
Blake is an awesome catcher and
shortstop and has been invited to try


out for several select teams. He was
one "B" short of straight "A's" for the
school year.
"This was especially impressive to
me since he accomplished this while
worrying about me being in Iraq,"
Vann said.
Brady, Vann's youngest son, will
start kindergarten this year.
"On their baseball teams, they both
try to get number 3 as they know
Brandon McArthur (former UF third
baseman) and think the world of
him," Vann said. "I could not think of
a better role model/person for them
to emulate."
Vann said his family came home
to Florida in April. While here they
went to the Orange and Blue Game,
along with about five baseball games.
Chad and Sheri also took the boys to
Disney World for the first time. Vann
said they hope to come back in the
fall.
"It was an amazing twenty years,"
Vann said. "I have done and experi-


enced things that I would have never
seen without the military - the Rocky
Mountains, the Panama Canal, the
tropics of South and Central Ameri-
ca, the heat and sand of the Middle
East, and this wonderful country
from coast to coast."
Vann said he was recently asked if
there was anything he would change.
"My immediate thought was yes,
but as I took a second to think about
it, my answer changed," Vann said.
"I would not have changed a single
thing! The reason is that to have
changed the variables in the equation
would have changed the end result."

By John M. Ayers
The Trenton City Commission re-
cently took action to issue a letter of
termination to the Gilchrist County
Commission in lieu of an interlocal
agreement involving Animal Con-
trol.
The City of Trenton has been a
member of the Gilchrist County
Animal Control committee for over
10 years as the municipality has co-
operated with the Town of Bell and
Gilchrist County to reduce problem
animals in the communities and
throughout the county.
Trenton Mayor Glen Thigpen
pointed out in the letter that the City
of Trenton, is experiencing reduced
economic growth and revenues and
must curtail certain of its budgetary
expenditures in the upcoming year
in order to remain financially viable
and provide services for citizens and
property owners of the City of Tren-
ton which are required.
The current interlocal agreement
dated July 21, 2008 will be terminat-
ed prior to July 1, 2009 and will take
effect on October 1, 2009.
Mayor Thigpen explained that the
City of Trenton property owners also
pay ad valorem taxes to Gilchrist
County from which the Animal Con-
trol Department is funded.
The City is no longer able to subsi-
dize Animal Control Services further
with both City of Trenton tax reve-
nues payable to Gilchrist County by
its property owners and by payment
of the additional fee and by providing
use of its facilities in the future. As
the Trenton property owners within
the municipality also pay into the
county's general fund, it is our under-
standing that the city should be enti-
tled to the benefit of Gilchrist County
Animal Control Services within the


city in the future, Thigpen identified
in his letter.
