Widening of 26 to four lanes will come right through Trenton


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Bill Henderson and Debra Miller
of the Florida Department of Trans-
portation attended the Monday Tren-
ton City Commission meeting along
with Greg Garrett of PBS&J.
The purpose of the visit was to
reveal the plans for the widening of
SR 26 between Fanning Springs and
Newberry.
Miller said they started out with
32 alternatives for bringing the new
four-lane through or around Trenton.
She said that the Citizens Advisory
Committee had met several times and
the final decision was to bring the
four-lane directly through Trenton.
The road will reduce from 230
feet in rural stretches of the road to
128 feet at Trenton Elementary on
the west side of Trenton and expand
again just after the historic Haigler
home on the east side of town. The
road would expand on the north side
of the street through Trenton. The
north side is the side where Capital

County denies

city's request

for increase in

fire service
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
Took action to discuss the increase of
$7500 that was requested by the City
of Trenton for fire service.
Gilchrist County currently pays
the City of Trenton $25,000 a year to,
provide assistance in fire service out-
side the City of Trenton.
The City of Trenton sent Gilchrist
County a letter in February request-
ing the board give the municipal-
ity an additional $7500 beginning in
2009-2010 budget year.
. Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen told the board that he
did not receive any response num-
bers from the City of Trenton with
their revenue request. At the present
time Gilchrist County Fire service is
working to get all of the active fire-
fighters in the county to attend school
to become certified firefighters. The
State of Florida requires that every
volunteer firefighter attend classes to
become a certified fire fighter or not
be involved in the fire service. Mc-
Queen also told the five commission-
ers that some of the City of Trenton's
volunteers are certified, but the actual
number of trained firefighters was not
reported.
The County commission discussed
the number of times the City of Tren-
ton fire service actually is called out
of the municipality. The board also
wanted to know on an average how
many firefighters respond to the 911
call when their emergency signal
goes off. McQueen told the board
that he could not answer these ques-
tions without more information from
the City of Trenton.
Chairperson Sharon Akins Lang-
ford did not call for a motion to take
action, but the board agreed that no
additional revenue was available at
this time without further information.
McQueen met with the Trenton City
Commission in the July 20 meet-
ing to advise the City Council of the
County Commission's decision.

are located.
On the south side of town, or the
Trenton Elementary side, the new
road will expand to the south side or
the opposite side of the Greenway
Trail. On the north side of Trenton
the road will expand to the north be-
cause of the power lines. Through the
middle of town the road will expand
to the north side
Garrett told the commissioners that
there are 6 segments for the widen-
ing, and at this time it looks like the
work will begin in Newberry and
head south to Trenton.
Garrett said that the Citizens Ad-
visory Committee for Newberry did
not want the road ,to come through
Newberry so the plans are for the
four-lane to bypass Newberry on the
north side. The bypass will begin
about the Gilchrist/Alachua county
line.
Henderson told the Commissioners
that the preferred alternatives were


GCSO Maj. Leonard Knuckles

Sheriff hires

Knuckles as a

second major
By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter has promoted a Trefiton
native with 30 years experience with
the Department of Corrections to the
position of major within the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office (GCSO).
Leonard Knuckles assumed his
new duties last Thursday. According
to Slaughter, Knuckles will super-
vise the operation of the jail and the
civil division. He will also assist with
training within the GCSO. Knuckles'
promotion means there will again be
two majors serving under Slaughter.
Currently, Major Tony Smith is in
charge of law enforcement opera-
tions.
Slaughter said on Friday that
Knuckles' 30 years of experience
with the Department of Corrections
played a key role in his decision to
promote, the officer, who he said
would be an asset to the county's jail
system.
While working with Department of
Corrections at Lancaster Correctional
Institute, Knuckles heldthe position
of K-9 Sergeant and Administrative
Sergeant at the work camp. He also
worked as a housing officer, training
relief officer and transport officer.
According to Slaughter, Knuckles
is also certified as a firearms instruc-
tor.
Knuckles has worked with GCSO
since 1985 as a part-time officer
within the patrol and civil divisions.

School district budget
for 2009-10 now


being considered
The Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict is now in the process of con-
sidering a budget for the 2009-1010
school year.
A public hearing to make a deci-
sion on the budget and taxes will be
held on Tuesday, July 28 at 7:15 p.m.
at the Gilchrist County School Board
Meeting Room, which is located at
S310 NW 1lth Avenue, Trenton.
A budget summary for the fiscal
year 2009-2010 is published on page
6 of this week's Gilchrist County
Journal.


now established but the bad news
is there is no money in the Depart-
ment of Transportation budget for the
next phase which is the detail design
plans. He went on to say like every-
one else the economy has limited
their funding at DOT and funding for
the next phase may be as far out as
five or more years.
Henderson said he actually has no
idea when the paving project will get
underway. He said this is an impor-
tant road because if a couple more
stretches were four-laned it would
mean that there, would be an east
west connection all four-laned from
St. Augustine to Highway 19, there-
fore making it an important addition
to the Florida Interstate Highway
System.
At this point it is expected that the
cost to four-lane through Trenton will
be about $22 million. The entire proj-
ect for all six segments from New-
berry through Trenton to Fanning
would be around $200 million.


25-year-old

man drowns

last week in

the Santa Fe

River
A 25-year-old man drowned last
Friday afternoon while wading in the
Santa Fe River near the Gilchrist/Co-
lumbia county line.
Deputies from the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office were called just be-
fore 2 p.m. after Guillermo Hernan-
dez reportedly slipped beneath the
shallow area and into a deep trench,
causing him to drown.
According to several of Hernan-
dez's friends, who were at the county
park with him, the man could not
swim, and was last seen wading near
the shore.
Deputies indicated that the river
water was very murky and the bot-
tom was not clearly visible where
Hernandez apparently drowned.
Divers from the Columbia County
Sheriff's Office, who regularly train
in that particular area of the Santa Fe
River, located Herandez's body at
5:20,p.m., an estimated 30 feet west
of where he was last seen.
According to deputies, there was
no evidence of foul play at the scene,
though, the official cause of death
has not yet been determined as the
Sheriff's Office awaits a Medical
Examiner's Office report following
an autopsy.


County accepts

Hart Springs

manager's

resignation

By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action to accept the resignation,
of Hart Springs Park Manager Julie
Harrison on Monday when it was
presented by County Administrator
Ron McQueen.
The county administrator did -not
give any reasons why the long-time
park manager had resigned, but the
board accepted the resignation by a
unanimous vote.
McQueen told the board that this is
a busy time of year at the Hart Springs
Park and the county could not take a
lot of time in hiring a replacement
for the supervisory position. He ex-
plained to the board that he would re-
view the applications from the recent
hiring of the Otter Springs Park Man-
ager and hire an interim park manag-
er to finish out the busy summer. The
board approved his recommendation.
On Tuesday morning McQueen said
he had hired former Gilchrist County
Commissioner Mitchell Gentry to fill
Harrison's position.

struck by a boat while snorkeling for
scallops near Steinhatchee.
Charles D. Sheppard, 60, of Cross
City was snorkeling. southwest of

accident. Parker did say on Monday
that Officials believe Sheppard died
after being cut by the propeller on the
motor of the boat. Additional infor-
mation will be available once a full
autopsy, which was being conducted
earlier this week, is completed at the
Medical Examiner's Office in Jack-'
sonville.


Military veteran travels back to

Afghanistan as a civilian contractor


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gordon and Gloria Minto of Bell
could not be more proud of their son,
who retired after 20 years spent serv-
ing the citizens of the United States
while in the Air Force.
- Though he always said he would be
a CPA when he retired, Patrick Minto
could not sit idle after retiring from
the armed services as a Lt. Colonel in
November 2007.
He took a year off to relax and trav-
el with his wife, Cheryl, who is also
in the Air Force. After helping Cheryl
move from South Carolina to Alexan-
dria, Virginia so she could start work
at the Pentagon, Mintosigned up as
a civilian contractor ind headed back
to Afghanistan in November 2008.
"He's a delightful young man, and
we're just so proud of him," Gloria
Minto said of her stepson.
Minto was raised in Tampa, though
he spends a considerable amount of
his free time visiting his parents at
their home in north Gilchrist County.
After graduating with a bachelor's
degree from the University of South
Florida, Minto joined the Air Force
in 1989 at the age of 27. He was in
the Air Force for two years and had
already been deployed to the Middle
East during Operation Desert Storm,
when he met his'wife, Cheryl.
According to Minto's parents, the
two got off on the wrong foot with
each one thinking the other was a
smart aleck. Eventually, distaste grew,
to love for the two, who were both
stationed at England Air Force Base
in Alexandria, Louisiana at the time.
Both also worked in airplane mainte-
nance for the Air Force; Cheryl still

does.
During their 16 years of mar-
riage, the Mintos have been fortunate
enough to be stationed together while
serving all over the world, including
five years spent in Okinawa, Japan.
In 2006 Minto served a tour of duty
in Afghanistan. It was after Minto re-
turned home that he retired in 2007,
having been awarded two bronze
stars.
"Patrick wanted to be a pilot, but
his eyesight prevented him from do-
ing that," Gloria Minto said.


Minto's parents keep' in contact
with him through e-mail and-they
say that Patrick says what Americans
read in the paper or see on the news is
not half as bad as what is really going
on in the Middle East.
Most recently, Patrick Minto re-
turned to the United States and Gil-
christ County in May to attend a fam-
ily member's wedding. His parents
are hopeful that he will make it back
in November to spend Thanksgiving
with the family.'

School is out, kids are playing in
the yard and noon picnics in the park
are a staple of a fun and relaxing
summer. However, summertime also
equals heat-excessive heat for those
living in the South.
According to the United States
Environmental Protection Agency's
Web site, during an average summer
in the United States, approximately
1,500 people die of conditions such
as heat exhaustion or heat stroke
caused by excessive heat events.
That's more, people than those who
die as the result of hurricanes, light-
ning, tornadoes, floods and earth-
quakes combined.
Excessive heat can affect anyone.
Normally, the body cools itself by in-
creasing blood flow to the skin and
perspiring. However, when heat-
related illnesses occur, the body's
temperature control system becomes
overloaded. When this happens, per-
spiring may not be enough to help
cool you down. Older adults are
more vulnerable to heat-related ill-
nesses. As we age, the body's cooling
mechanisms may become impaired.
Health conditions such as chronic
illness, mental impairment and obe-
sity can also increase an individual's
vulnerability. Taking certain medica-
tions may affect the body's cooling
mechanisms as well.
There are many ways to stay cool
during the hot months. First and fore-
most,, drink a lot of water. "People
tend to forget to drink," says Verna
Groger, dietician with Haven Hos-
pice. "Remember to carry a bottle
of water with you at all times and
have it handy. Drinking water needs
to become a habit." Groger also
points out that a lot of illnesses can
be traced back to not being well-hy-
drated. Lack of hydration in the body
can result in dehydration as well as
increased inflammation and the ac-
celeration of diseases.
In addition to staying hydrated, the


most important measure to prevent-
ing overheating, according to medi-
cinenet.corm, is to avoid vigorous
physical exercises in hot and humid
weather. Raising your body's tem-
perature by exercising in hot and hu-
mid weather could become danger-
ous. If you are one who loves work-
ing outside in your garden or flower
bed, take frequent breaks and drink
plenty of water, Alcohol and caffein-
ated drinks may cause dehydration,
so it is best to avoid those liquids.
Air conditioning is also key to
staying cool. If your community or
home is not air-conditioned, visit the
local mall, movie theater or library.
Wearing lightweight, light-colored
and loose-fitted clothing also will
help you stay cool during the hot
summer months.
This summer has proven to be a
hot one, with record-breaking tem-"
peratures across most of the United
States. Taking simple steps to stay
hydrated and cool will help to ensure
your safety this summer.

Now aM

By Carrie

It's been a crazy few weeks!
Between learning to vacation with
a baby (which means packing 17
bags) to stressful visits to the pediat-
rican, and running all over the state,
I have to tell you all, the highlight of
the last two weeks for me has been
having the opportunity to write sto-
ries on two of America's bravest.
I am so grateful to have had the
chance to correspond with Chad
Vann last week for the article on his
retirement after serving 20 years in
the Air Force. I don't know if you
know Chad personally or not, but he
is 'quite a character!
Despite all that this Trenton native
has seen while in combat, Chad has
such a sense of pride for America. So
much so in fact that he says he would
be willing to serve this country again
if the U.S. were ever threatened.
Wow! Thank you God for men like
Chad Vann who sacrifice time with
their families and their own safety to
fight for the freedom we all enjoy and
often take for granted.
Last Friday, I had the opportunity
to sit down with the sweetest couple,
Gordon and Gloria Minto of Bell.
These two were only too happy to
tell me all about their son, Patrick
Minto (who is featured on the front
page of this week's Journal). While I
missed having the opportunity to talk
with Patrick about his 20 years spent
in the military, I can certainly appre-
ciate the sacrifices he has made for


A. Mizell
this country. The fact that Patrick is
currently in Afghanistan doesn't stop
his parents from sharing all about
their son's life and his experiences
while serving in the Air Force.
Hopefully, Patrick will be home
in time for Thanksgiving. Home for
good, if his parents have any say in
the matter. Until he returns home, I
hope you will join me in praying for
Patrick and all the servicemen and
women currently serving in the Unit-
ed States armed forces.
God bless them all!
As associate editor of the Gilchrist
County Journal, I have to say that I
am humbled to have the opportunity
to write such stories ofAmerica's he-
roes and print them on our pages.
If you or someone you love is cur-
rently serving in the military, and you
would like their story shared, please
let me know by calling 463-7135, or

As I drove home Friday afternoon
on State Road 47, my heart swelled
with pride for Gilchrist County. As
I drove along, I counted numerous
American flags hanging from peo-
ple's fences, front porches and even
several flag poles between the city
limits of Trenton and the Columbia
County line.
I am so proud to call a county home
that truly appreciates the freedom we
have as American citizens.
What a precious gift we have been
given ... freedom.

"There is an old joke that Wall
Street has a river at one end and a
grave yard at the other. Yet, this is
strikingly incomplete. It omits the
kindergarten in the middle." Fred
Schwed, Jr.
There was some perverse amuse-
ment on Wall Street recently amid the
outcry over the antics of one Sergey
Aleynikov, a Wall Street quant who
left Goldman Sachs for greener pas-
tures and a fourfold increase in salary.
In happenstance, as he was cleaning
out his desk he somehow included a
copy of Goldman's high-frequency
trading software.
Such an infraction might have been
over looked had it not been for the
countless hours and millions of dol-
lars Goldman spent developing the
software, designed to detect large
order positions ahead of their execu-
tion. In other words, the software en-
abled Goldman to essentially engage
in high-tech front running.
Front-running, or trading ahead
of executing a customer's order, is a
prohibited activity. However, Gold-
man was not actually front running
its own customers so the activity is
not illegal per se. Furthermore, Gold-
man is one of the shrewdest risk tak-
ers on Wall Street. The firm searches
out risk and underwrites trades that
are viewed with envy by its more
conservative brethren, which is why
Goldman just posted second quarter
earnings of more than $2.7 billion?
What was amusing was a statement
by the prosecutor in the case in which
he told the court that bail should be
denied because it is not known ex-
actly what happened to the software
and that in the wrong hands, "It could
lead to unfair manipulation of the
markets."
Let's see if I understand that state-
ment correctly. In Goldman's hands
the manipulation is not unfair. It is
unfair only if it is being orchestrated
by others.
Do not misunderstand me; I am in
no way condoning the alleged theft
and I am not denigrating Goldman
for developing the software, or even,
demeaning high-frequency trading as
a technique to take advantage of mar-
ket inefficiencies. As Harry Truman
often said, "If you don't like the heat,


Dead Works And Works Justified - Part 1

Works alone cannot save a man. Paul used Abraham to gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast"

works to know God was going to destroy the world and
when the time came to destroy the world.
The works of the Devil are dead works and the purpose
Jesus came to earth was to "destroy the works of the devil"
(1 John 3:8). Keeping the Law of Moses is keeping a law of
works whereby man could never be justified. "Knowing
that a man is not justified by the works of the law but by
faith in Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Christ
Jesus, that we might be justified by faith in Christ and not
by the works of the law; for by the works of the law no
flesh shall be justified" (Galatians 2:16). When men seek
to keep the Law of Moses and bind as law the Ten


world-that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever
believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting
life" (John 3:16). Where is man's boasting there?
Works that are dead are those works where man seeks to
find justification in who he is and what he is apart from the
grace of God. These works led men to turn every intent of
the thoughts of their hearts to evil continually (Genesis
6:5). Boastful works brought men together at a place to
build a city and a tower "whose top is in the heavens" and
seeking to make a name for themselves (Genesis 11:4).
These works are dead!

get out of the kitchen."
However, last week a writer in
Barron's, a bastion of financial idola-
try, penned the profound thought that
successful brokers all seem to have
nice cars but only a few investors do.
He then proceeded to add the astute
observation that there is no lack of
pundits offering up ineffectual advice
to the investing public.
I do not wish to castigate the writer
but his statements are a poor parody
of the classic book, "Where Are the
Customer's Yachts," by Fred Schwved,
Jr., published in 1940 and updated
in 1955. And since Barron's is pub-
lished by Dow Jones, the same orga-
nization that brings us the hallowed
Wall Street Journal, please allow me
to paraphrase the following Journal
quote from Schwed's book, an illus-
tration of how far we have come in
giving investment advice.
"During the slow rise from the
April lows, the action of the market
was regarded in the nature of a techni-
cal recovery, with little thought of the
imminence of dynamic action. Resis-
tance, as expected, was encountered
just below 140 for the Dow; but after
a one-day decline, volume dwindled
and the market presently appears to
be in somewhat of a consolidation."
The plain and unfortunate truth of
the matter is that most investors do
not have yachts...or even rowboats.
The primary reason is a penchant
to be swayed by tales comprised of
fool's gold.
Kermit Long told the story of the
two men who were walking along a
crowded sidewalk. Suddenly one ex-
claimed, listen to the lovely sound of
that cricket. The other commented he
heard nothing. Furthermore, he asked

By Cindy Jo Avers


Saturday afternoon I was hard at
work in the kitchen making yeast bis-
cuits for a friend's daughter's wed-
ding. Just as I finished rolling a batch
of biscuits, we received a call from
Eddy Scott, a longtime family friend.
Eddy told me that he left something
for John and me behind the Journal
office building. I assured Eddy that
just as soon as I finished my task I
would head down there and pick it
up. Eddy said that I might want to
take John with me because I might
not be able to load it by myself.
I thought what in the world could
it be? Eddy wouldn't say what it was;
he just told me not to go alone and I
needed to go pretty soon or someone
might take it. He also said, that he and
his wife Cindy had grown the myste-
rious item in their garden.
In the past we have been given all
sorts of produce grown right here in
Gilchrist County. It is not unusual at
all for a bag of sweet corn or water-
melons to show up here..So I guessed
the item was some usual fresh vege-
table grown in an area home garden.
As it turns out, John went and
picked it up because I was still busy
with my biscuit making project, ,
He came in the back door shaking
his head, all the while telling me that
I was going to be surprised this time.
Well, I have to tell you it really did
surprise me. Those Scotts had gifted
us with a huge bright orange pump-
kin.
After John struggled to get our big
ol' pumpkin, in the house, I just had


his companion, how was it possible
to detect the sound of a cricket amid
the din of the city?
The first man, a zoologist, had
trained himself to listen to the voices
of nature. But rather than than try to ex-
plain, he simply took a coin from his
pocket and dropped it on the side-
walk, whereupon a dozen people
began looking around. "We hear," he
said, "whatwe listen for."
You .can write to financial colum-
nist Lauren Rudd ati 5 Gulf Manor


to weigh it. So I pulled out our bath-
room scale which I hid in the closet
some years ago (for a good reason;
those things are mighty depress-'
ing). John lifted up that big boy onto
those scales and it weighted in at 80
pounds.
Now I'm not too sure what we are
going to do with it, but for now it
makes a good conversation piece.
Just in case ya'll have a pumpkin
that needs cooking, my mother has
been making these Pumpkin Squares
and she says they are really good.

4 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons cinnamon
2 cups sugar
2 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 cups canned or cooked fresh
pumpkin

Mix together eggs, sugar, oil,
and sifted dry ingredients. Blend in
pumpkin.
Bake in greased and floured 12x18
inch pan in a 350 degree oven for 25
to 30,minutes.
Frosting
1/2 cup softened butter
1 box powdered sugar
8 ounce cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla'
1 cup chopped pecans. or walnuts
-Mix and spread over the cooled
pumpkin cake.

Mt. Nebo Caring and
Sharing Day
Mt. Nebo Baptist Church's annual
"Caring and Sharing Day" has been
set for Saturday, August I from 7:30
a.m. til 1:00 p.m. We will be giving
away items of clothing, furniture,


Even though things were really bad
at his house, Tommy was terrified
when people took him away. They
told him he needed to be in a safe
place but they separated him from his
siblings, took him to a strange house
in a neighborhood he didn't know,
and said he would be going to a new
school.
Through no fault of their own,
some children are separated from
their families and all they are fa-
miliar with because of neglect and
abuse. It's a nightmare for them, and
they should not have to be alone in
this process. The overburdened child
welfare system cannot always give
thorough, detailed attention to each
child who comes before them.
Enter the Guardian ad Litem Pro-
gram. The court appoints a Guardian
ad Litem to represent the best inter-
est of neglected and abused children
while they are in the court system.
The Guardian helps them understand
what is going on and assures the chil-
dren don't get lost in the system. The
program depends heavily on volun-
teers. In Gilchrist and Levy Counties
alone, there are over 100 children in
the court system.
The Guardians serve as fact find-
ers for the judge, make recommenda-
tions and speak for the child in court,
and act as a "watchdog" for the child
throughout the case, ensuring it is
brought to a swift and appropriate
conclusion. They monitor and inves-
tigate not only how the children are
doing but what progress the parents
are making.
Guardians follow their children
through the dependency process until


housewares and school supplies. If
you have a need, please come by and
see us. It will be on a first come, first
serve basis. Everything is free!!
Mt. Nebo is located 3 miles North
of Bell at 420 NW Highway 340. If
you have any questions, you may call
our church office at (386) 935-3575.


the case is closed and they go back to
their families or are adopted. If chil-
dren remain in foster care, Guard-
ians are often the only constant in the
children's lives. Guardians ad Litem
are ordinary citizens. They receive
30 hours of training, are screened for
objectivity and competence and are
asked to commit at least one year. No
legal background is required. 6-12
hours per month are usually required,
much of which is done by phone calls
and emails. Guardians have a case co-
ordinator and attorneys who provide
assistance. There are many children
still in need of their own Guardian ad
Litem volunteer to help change their
lives. The next class starts August 1
in' Trenton. For more information,
call 352-486-3308 or go to guardi-

Watch out fish: Avers' residents head to the river


Mariam Bergenstock was waiting for a catch.


Mandy Medlin is shown with Russell Prevost who made. a catch.
On Friday, July 17, some residents stop was at the Nut House for some
of Ayers ventured out on a fishing crickets to fish with; then onto our
trip to Hinton Landing. Our first destination to catch some fish.


We were blessed with a gorgeous
day and a beautiful breeze.
Five residents went on our fishing
trip. What a joy it was to get out for
a day of fresh air.
A picnic lunch of sandwiches,
chips, cookies and soda was served
midway through the fishing expedi-
tion. Though our fishing trip wasn't


too productive, we all had a won-
derful time in the park fishing and
visiting.
Mandy and Russell managed to
catch the only fish just before we
left.. It was too little to keep, but
a lot of fun to catch. Perhaps our
group will have better luck next
time.

for your child to be a member of the
TMS/THS Band, then you know
what an important role music plays
in your child's life.

rable one, we will be having several

equipment, uniforms, band trips, etc.
This is also a great way for students

Smith and Jesse Gray helped run the
CPR, and Jennifer Honaker and Bai-
ley Lalande helped with the competi-
tive event PSA (Public Service An-
nouncement).
In Nashville we had a lot of extra
time to do what we wanted to do. It
was the first time most of us had been
to Nashville.
In our spare time we ran around
the Opryland Hotel, went to the Opry
Mills mall a lot, had a backstage tour
of the Grand Ole Opry, and went to
Downtown Nashville one day where
we got to go in many of the old record
stores and see the recording Studios.
In order for all of us to go, we had
to agree to attend a four-hour Lead-
ership Class to help prepare us to be
the best officers for our HOSA chap-
ter that we could possibly be. And it
really wasn't as bad as we thought it
would be!

O Bits and Pieces from The Joyful Heart Quilters and Crafters

_________N_____L__ - of North Gilchrist County


Well, our 4th of July celebration
held on Wednesday, July 1 at Mary
Lou Ryder's house was a real treat
and then some. Mary Lou has a great
place for entertaining and boy did she
ever.
Everyone brought a covered dish
and we had hot dogs and sausages
with all the works plus yummy des-
serts and ice cold tea, lemonade and
assorted drinks.
Nearly everyone was present. We
missed Evelyn, Gwen, Ann and Heidi.
Please remember to visit and/or send
cards to Ann Taylor who is at Palm
Gardens in Gainesville and Paulene
Martin who is at Ayers in Trenton.
The 4th of July tray favors for Tri
County Nursing Home turned out so
cute; and Bonnie; Diana, and Betty
Jo took them before the holiday.
Our next meeting on the 8th of July
met with really bad storms so some
folks stayed home rather than risk an
accident, but we ended up with fif-
teen in all.
Ann Mangone brought in not one
but two huge Sunbonnet Sue Quilts
she made for her 5-year-old twin
granddaughters. One was done up in
solids and prints of various shades of
pink. The other was the same only in

lavender. Two rows faced right and
two rows faced left. Each block was
different but each quilt was alike.
They all were hand appliqued and
had touches of embroidery work and
butterflies. The lace trim on some
of the dresses and bonnets was from
family treasures. Ann said, what with
all the other quilts and wall hangings
she's created, this has been a labor of
love for two years. I'm sure they will
be treasured for many years to come
and passed down to other precious
children.
Lera Townsend brought in a darling
dress of bright polka dots and ribbons
of color that' she made for her great
granddaughter and without a real pat-
tern, I might add. She saw a picture
in a magazine and altered an old pat-
tern she had stored away and came up
with a real fashion statement.
Pat Luka brought in an oriental de-
signed wall hanging, all completely
handquilted. It is just lovely. Each
stitch is full of love; you can just feel
it.
All in all, I'd say we're a very
talented and clever bunch, but then
that's not being very humble, is it?
Diana passed out red and white
candy canes and we're all supposed
to take them home and turn them into
a Christmas ornament for our Christ-
mas in July meeting. We're going to
vote on the one we like best and make
them for Tri-Couny Nursing Home.
Several of us have had or are going
to have surgery; several have been in
and out of the hospital; -several have
been having more than their share of
pain and several are taking care of
loved ones who are ill...yet, we are
blessed....we walk in faith and have
family and friends to help us through
troubled times....and' all God's chil-

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, July 16th at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a day that ev-
eryone was busy. Joyce brought in
fabric, and we looked and planned a
new project. Alline has finished her
white on white quilt. The work is
something to see. Doris is working
on a new pattern, and we enjoyed
having Beth Davis from Cedar Key
to come by and visit.
There is a new Heart of The Scenic
Trail magazine that is being put out
about Florida and the Quilt Museum.
It will be available in August. The
one onAlachua is great, and we don't


know how much of Florida we know
nothing about. We have copies here
at the Museum.
Nick Turner was out with six
young men on Tuesday, and we did
get a lot done from mowing to shuck-
ing corn, trimming figs to can, and to
cutting up onions. What a great time
we have teaching whoever comes
along. Thanks, Lancaster.
Dinner was great; chicken of all
kinds, fried okra, creamed corn, pasta
salad, cheese and macaroni, vegeta-
ble loaf, squash, chocolate pie, fruit
cake and so much more.

lo. She is the adored mother of son,
Dow L. Roland of Fort Pierce; three

rite was the loving grandmother of
eight grandchildren and ten great-
grandchildren.
Marguerite was born in Trenton
on December 8, 1922 and was the
daughter of Horace Orlando and
Myrle Gay. Her family-roots go back
to the 1820's, descending from old


I


Florida pioneer families: Colson,
Dell, Mathews, Gay and DuPuis.
Marguerite's great-grandfather,
William H. Gay, obtained a patent to
land east of the present city limits of
Trenton from President Chester A.
Arthur on June 13, 1884.
Maxy Dell Colson, her mater-
nal great-grandfather moved from
Gainesville to the Trenton area in
the 1870's to supervise a plantation
owned by Simeon Dell, later known
as the Wade place. In January 1886,
Maxy Dell Colson obtained a deed
from the Board of Education of the
State of Florida, which land now con-
stitutes the original plat of the City of
Trenton.
Marguerite's paternal grandpar-
ents, Samuel G. Gay and Callie
Colson Gay, were very progressive
farmers. They were among the first
to produce perishable fruits and veg-
etables on a large scale in the areas of
Gilchrist, Levy and the western part
ofAlachua counties. Samuel G. Gay
was also instrumental in introducing
pure blooded Duro-Jersey hops into
the area. It is reported that he had
the first tractor in Gilchrist County as
well as the first electric light system
(Delco) in the area. This was done
around 1919.
Her maternal grandparents, Sidney
and Allie DuPuis, were married in
Trenton. Sidney was a teacher and
had a general store. Allie was well
known through the area for her milli-
nery shop producing some. of the fin-
est hats of that era. Later they moved
to Miami to join Sidney's brother, Dr.
Gordon DuPuis in the operation of
White Belt Dairy, general store and
pharmacy.
Her parents, Horace and Myrle
Gay continued the family tradition of
farming in Trenton for several years.
In 1941, Marguerite moved to
Newberry with her husband, Howard
L. Roland, where they raised their
five children.
When she remarried Sonny Fel-
lows, they resided in Holly -Hill.
There she opened her own florist
shop, Marguerite's Florist, in 1976.
After retiring in the last few years,
she moved to Monticello, Florida to
live with her daughter.
Everyone who knew Marguerite
will always remember her contagious
laugh and her love for life. We miss
her terribly.
Services were held at Allen Chapel
African Methodist Episcopal Church
in Daytona Beach on Saturday, June
13.

2008 Small Farm
Survey Results
The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture considers any farm a "small
farm" if it has less than $250,000 in
annual gross sales, but that defini-
tion is too broad to provide a sense of
what Florida's small farms are really
like.
So th- University of Florida and
Florida A&M University surveyed
small farmers statewide, and about
300 responded. The results shed light
on producer demographics and con-
firm that small farms make important
contributions to local economies.
In terms of land, 64 percent of the
participants farmed 50 acres or less.
Their motivations varied widely.
Many participants-39 percent-report-
ed that farming was moderately im-
portant or very important as a prima-
ry source of income, and 52 percent
relied on farming for supplemental
income. Farming was a part-time oc-
cupation for 44 percent.
Other popular reasons included


County Warrant with the charge of
VOP/Grand Theft.
On July 15, 2009, Travis A. Kirch-
er, 1/11/81, was arrested on the charge'

ing to own a business and enjoying
the farming lifestyle.
Despite farming's image as a call-
ing pursued from childhood, many of
Florida's small farmers are new to the
activity. Sixty percent indicated that
no one else in their family farmed,
and 44 percent said they were the first
generation of farmers in their family.
Fifteen percent reported having less
than five years' experience.
Altogether, the participants pro-
duced 35 items. The most common
were beef cattle (produced by 33 per-
cent), horses (17 percent), goats (16
percent), vegetables (14 percent) and
flowers or bedding plants (11 per-
cent).
Other enterprises included hay,
fruits, herbs, poultry, aquaculture,
beekeeping, timber and pine straw.
Crop diversity is essential to farm
sustainability, and 45 percent of the
participants reported producing two
or more items.
Forty-three percent of participants
said they followed organic principles,
but only 6 percent had obtained or-

Challenges facing Florida's small
farmers include marketing their crops
at a profit, finding affordable materi-
als and supplies, obtaining reliable
information, and complying with
state and federal regulations.
To address these issues, regional'
small farm conferences are held
throughout the state. This summer,
the first statewide conference' will
provide small farmers a forum for
exchanging ideas and an opportunity
to learn about strategies to improve
the sustainability of their farms.

Smokey Bear received lots of hugs last week when he stopped by the
Bell Library to talk about forestry and the importance of preventing
forestfires.

Smokey Bear surprises kids

at Bell Library s summer


reading progrn

By Greg Marshall
Gilchrist County Forester
The Division of Forestry was in-
vited to talk to a group of kids about
forestry at the library July 21st.
The Division of Forestry reached
kids from Bell who were eager to
learn about trees and the forest.
The kids learned why the forest is
,important and some of the products
that are produced from trees. The
kids will never be able to brush their
teeth, eat ice cream, wash their hair
and eat Oreo cookies without think-
ing of trees.
There are over 5,000 products that
are derived from trees that are used
every day. Trees provide additives
in products such as gum, Gator Aid
and hot sauce. Think twice when you
are using a product; it may have been
made from a tree.
Another topic the kids learned


J Ayers


is that it is important to protect the
forest from wildfires. At this time
Smokey's ears were burning and sur-
prised the kids.
Prevention is the key in helping to
reduce the number of human caused
fires. Florida is the lightning capital
of the world; however arson and es-
caped debris burning are still the two
main causes of wildfires in Florida.
Smokey Bear remains an active
part of our overall fire prevention
message, but our work goes beyond
Smokey.
The Division of Forestry can edu-
cate kids and adults on all forestry
related topics. If you have, any ques-
tions on forestry or want Smokey to
visit your school, contact the Divi-
sion of Forestry at 352-463-3138. To
learn more about other services pro-
vided visit the Division of Forestry at

Old Town man

arrested after

string of local

burglaries
By Carrie A. Mizell
An Old Town man arrested for
stealing a tool at Wal-Mart is now
believed to be connected with nu-
merous burglaries in Levy, Lafayette,
Alachua and Gilchrist Counties.
Donald A. ,Bernier, 40, was ar-
rested on July 9 by a Chiefland Po-
lice Department officer for stealing a
dremel tool at Wal-Mart.
. One week later on July 17, Bernier
was arrested again for burglary and
grand theft. According to the Levy
County Sheriff's Office, Bernier en-
tered a Chiefland residence through
a garage window on July 3 and stole
a 47" big screen television valued at
$3,000 and jewelry valued at $550.
Forensic detectives responded to
the burglary and were able to locate
vehicle tire tracks and shoe impres-
sions that did not belong to the vic-
tims. The investigation revealed that
the vehicle tire tracks and shoe im-
pressions were a positive match to
Bernier's 2003 Ford Explorer and his
shoes that were obtained through a
search warrant.
A concerned citizen, after seeing
the news release on Bemier, made
contact with the Sheriff's Office
and advised detectives that they saw
a white Ford Explorer with no tag
leaving the. victim's house the day of
the burglary. Detective Morgan has
recovered the stolen big screen tele-
vision in Cross City, and the stolen
television will be returned to the vic-
tims.
Detectives with the Levy County
Sheriff's Office believe that Bernier.
has committed numerous other bur-
glaries in Levy County and surround-
ing counties.
Citizens are asked to call the Sher-
iff's Office if you have seen a suspi-
cious white Ford Explorer, or a white
male in your neighborhood. Also you
can remain anonymous by calling
Crime Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477.

fruits and vegetables and many of
them are eager to get a momentary
sense of connection to a working
farm.
Bradford County, in Northeast
Florida, is one of the state's smaller
counties in terms of geographic area
and population, but our agricultural
community has a strong tradition
of direct marketing. Currently we
have 10 roadside stands, eight of
them along the busiest thoroughfare
through the county, U.S. Highway
301. We can take some lessons from
these businesses that could be useful
to small farmers elsewhere.
First, you don't have to operate a
roadside stand to sell your crops at
one. Many proprietors are eager to
buy produce from other local farm-
ers. That's especially true if you offer
specialty items other local growers
don't.
Second, quality is everything. Of-
ten, consumers are attracted to road-
side stands because they believe they
can find fresher items there than in
the supermarket. So be selective and
offer freshly harvested items, culling
out crops with noticeable defects.
For those operating roadside
stands, keep these things in mind:
If you're a grower it may be a
good idea to put the stand on your
farm property. The presence of crops
growing on location can help attract
customers.
Two of Bradford County's road-
side stands are set up this way, both
of them prominently displaying tro-
phies garnered by their prize-winning
strawberries.
Consumers are looking for a pleas-
ant experience, not just good pro-
duce. That means making sure your
employees are friendly, your fa-
cilities are clean andi your prices are
competitive.
Prominent signs are important,
so that prospective customers know
about your stand before they reach it,
and recognize it when they arrive.
Provide ample off-road parking, so
that drivers can easily enter and leave
your premises.
If you're getting started, check ap-
, plicable state and local laws to ensure
that you comply with their require-
ments. Your county extension office
can help with further tips.
Half of Bradford County's road-
side stands have been open between
seven and 20 years, proving that this
business model can work, provided
your location offers a steady flow of
potential customers.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation, 20,000 peo-
ple see these stands every day as they
pass by on U.S. Highway 301.
On Aug. 1-2, the first Florida Small
Farms and Alternative Enterprises
Conference will be held at Osceola
Heritage Park in Kissimmee. The
event will feature exhibitors, educa-
tional sessions and more. All Florida
farmers are invited to attend. Visit the

SRWMD approves tentative

budget for 2009-10


The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) Governing
Board approved a tentative budget of
$56 million for Fiscal Year 2009-10
at a meeting July 14. By comparison,
last year's budget was set at $70 mil-
lion.
The board also approved a pro-
posed ad valorem village of 0.4399.
For the 20th consecutive year, the
District. has not raised the millage
rate.
Under a 0.4399 rate - 43.99 cents
for every $1,000 of assessed property
value - the owner of a home as-
sessed at $100,000, claiming $50,000
homestead exemption, would pay
$22 in property taxes to the District.


Taxes fund numerous public servio-
es, including access to public lands,
springs protection, water monitoring
programs and water supply planning.
The District wvill hold its first public
hearing on the proposed budget Sept.
8 at 5:30 p.m. The public hearing
will immediately follow the govern-
ing board's regular monthly meeting,
which will be held in September at a
special time, beginning at 3 p.m.
A-final public hearing will be held
Sept. 22 at 5:30 p.m. Both meetings
will take place at the District's Head-
quarters at the corner of US 90 and
CR 49, just east of Live Oak.
