Tax levy will benefit the Gilchrist County School District


By Carrie A. Mizell
Residents of Gilchrist County will
see on their November tax bill a quar-
ter mill tax increase, which was re-
cently passed by the Gilchrist County
School Board.
After much consideration, superin-
tendent Don Thomas recommended
the tax levy after it was determined
that the Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict would soon be operating with
$1.4 million less than the 2008-09
fiscal year.
However, he did point out that
the budget shortfall is not as bad as
district officials first feared, thanks
in large part to $850,000 in federal
stimulus funding.
"It's been a difficult decision,"
Thomas said. "On one hand I under-
stand that taxpayers are hurting, but


we'll be able to fund eight or nine
more teachers."
According to Damon Leggett,
property appraiser for Gilchrist
County, the quarter mill tax increase
will generate an estimated $176,300
for the school district at an estimated
cost of $20 or less per taxpayer.
, The Gilchrist County School
JBoard has tentatively approved its
budget for the 2009-10 fiscal year at
$28,580,563.54.
Thomas pointed out that the larg-
est expenditure the school district
has is instruction, which totals
$12,758,599.67. Thomas also said
that the, school district has 60 less
employees than it had two years ago.
The cut in teachers means that stu'-
dents can expect larger class sizes
for the upcoming school year. Ad-


ministrators are also picking up the
slack as the schools continue sharing
assistant principals in both Bell and
Trenton.
"The cuts we have made have been
strategic," Thomas said. "Our ad-
ministrative team sat down and said,
'Okay, where will this least affect
us?"'
The superintendent said that while
the federal stimulus money will be
helpful in bridging the gap this year,
the funding is short term and only
guaranteed for the next two years;
so the school district will have to be
very careful with how the money is
spent.
"We have to plan in advance for
that," Thomas explained.
The superintendent said that school
district officials are currently picking


apart the budget to see what can be
reduced or eliminated. One thing that
has changed for the upcoming school
year is that the school board will no
longer carry accident insurance for
students. Families can buy this insur-
ance, but it will be costly. Thomas
said the school board still carries
catastrophic insurance, if something
terrible were to happen. But all stu-
dents participating in school sports
will now have to show proof of in-
surance, or buy it to take part.
No cuts have been made to pro-
grams, Thomas explained, but if the
economy does not come back before
the stimulus money goes away, then
school district officials will have to
look deeper, which means a cut in
programs maybe in the future.
Long-term effects from the short-


age in funding include the fact that
the school district is behind schedule
in replacing its budget, one-third of
which needs to be replaced. Thomas
said the district has also not been
able to give teachers the raises they
deserve.
The superintendent said that Gil-
christ County is very lucky to have
great teachers, which is reflected in
the academic success the school dis-
trict has had over the years.
"Gilchrist County is the only school
district in the state that has had all
A's and B's for going on 10 years,"
Thomas said. "No other district has
that kind of consistency." .
Thomas is worried that the loss of
funding at the state level may trickle
down and adversely affect, students'
academic success. With 64 less em-


ployees, Thomas said getting the
same results will be a challenge.
"We want to make sure that the kids
going through school now are get-
ting the same quality of education as
the kids who have gone through the
school system in the past," Thomas
said. "We have to keep the same level
of quality with a lot less money ..
it's going to be difficult."
The superintendent said that it al-
ways hurts to lay someone off, espe-
cially with the economy in the shape
it is currently in.
"We know families are hurting,"
Thomas said. "That's why we tried
to do most of our cuts thorough at-
trition."
The Gilchrist County School Board
will hold its final budget hearing on
Tuesday, Sept. 15.


Local woman calls for signs

on Santa Fe River after her

husband nearly drowns


By Carrie A. Mizell
A day trip to the Santa Fe River
Park nearly ended with a drowning
last week for a High Springs couple
who took their three young nieces to
play in the dark water.
Had Jenni Callahan not pulled her
48-year-old husband Tom's floating
body from the river and immediate-
ly performed CPR, he would have
drowned.
Tom's close call last Tuesday, along
with the two other recent drownings
in the same area of the Santa Fe Riv-
er, have prompted Jenni to call for
action.
On Tuesday morning Jenni said she
has made numerous calls to Gilchrist
County officials asking that warning
signs be posted within the Santa Fe
River Park to let swimmers and boat-
ers know of the river's sharp current,
whirlpools, and undertow.
So far, Jenni said the only response
she has gotten is from County Admin-
istrator Ron McQueen's office staff,
who reportedly told her the respon-
sibility of putting up warning signs
falls to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC).
However, Karen Parker, spokes-
woman for FWC, said the decision to
post signs is up to Gilchrist County
officials since the park is county-
maintained.
"Everyone is worried about being
liable," Jenni said. "If you don't post
a sign and you know, then you are li-
able!"
Jenni is thankful that she and her


husband survived the incident, which
began when Tom walked down to the
boat ramp and said he was going to
jump in and cool off. Jenni said she
remembers seeing Tpm's head pop-
ping back up some 10 feet away, but
he was quickly pulled back into the
water.
Jenni tried to toss him a rope, but
was unable to use the rope because it
had a knot in it from the day before
when the couple had used it to pull
a vehicle. When she heard her hus-
band's screams, Jenni jumped into
the water and said she too was im-
mediately sucked down. She recalls
bobbing up and down at least three
times before she was able to grab a
nearby rock.
At that point, Jenni said Tom's
body floated to the surface. Tom's
body was gray and purple in color
and his eyes were rolled back in his
head.
"Miracously Tom floated within
arm's length of me and I was able
to grab him by the hair and pull him
up," Jenni said.
With one of her niece's counting,
Jenni gave Tom CPR for three to five
minutes before he regained concious-
ness. Within 20 minutes, Tom was
walking around and ready to go home
and forget the entire incident.
However, Jenni said the nightmare
of the near drowning has plagued
both of them ever since, so she knows
something must be done to prevent
another drowning at the Santa Fe
River Park.


Gentry is new manager at Hart Springs


By John Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action Monday to address sey-
eral concerns involving Hart Springs
Park and the job that new interim
park manager Mitchell Gentry is get-
ting done.
Gentry told the board that he grew
up at Hart Springs, attending the park
as a young boy in Gilchrist County.
"Hart Springs has a big place in
my heart; it is a jewel of a spring and
we have a lot of work to be done,"
he explained to the Commission on
Monday.

Mitchell Gentry
tor, explained to the board that Gentry
is working hard trying to get the park
back to where it needs to be following
the flood of 2009. Gilchrist County
recently received $123,000 in insur-
ance returns involving the damage at
the county park. The county commis-
sion agreed to have the funds desig-
nated to be spent at Hart Springs.
Gentry explained to the commis-
sion that the improvements at Hart
Springs are coming along well. The
staff has been concentrating on hav-
ing the Pavilions A and B ready for
scheduled family reunions. There is
a need for an additional lawn mower
to cut from 5-7 acres of grass on the
new ball park and swimming pool
area. Commissioner Randy Durden
pointed out that the swimming pool
area needs some lawn furniture to be
added inside the fenced area around
the pool.

MAYOR'S WIFE DIAGNOSED WITH HiNl


"This is t

By Carrie A. Mizell
Tightening in her throat, shortness
of breath, coughing, and a strange
headache are just a handful of the
HIN1 symptoms Leslie Thigpen said
she experienced Saturday.
Wife of Trenton Mayor Glen Thig-
pen, Leslie has been employed at
Lancaster Correctional Institute as
a library technical assistant since
April.
Leslie said that when she first heard
three inmatea ha..! confined cases of
H1N1, she thought the library was
probably safe, since it is wiped down
with bleach four times a day.
"As soon as we found out, the war-
den allowed us to bring bleach wipes
in, but I just knew that as much as we
disinfected, there was no way," Les-
lie said.
The mother of two young children,
whom she hasn't seen since Saturday,
said' on Tuesday morning that she
may have just gotten it from the air
while walking across the property.
Leslie went to Chiefland Medical
Center on Monday, where her fears
of H1N1 were confirmed.
"Before I even told them my symp-
toms, they gave me a mask to put on


the worst I've ever felt in my life!"


once they found out that I work at
Lancaster," Leslie explained. "They
hadn't even run the test yet."
On Tuesday Leslie was resting at
home quarantined from the ones she
loves. Her husband was reportedly
sleeping on the couch and her chil-
dren were staying at her in-laws.
Leslie said she was given two anti-
biotics Tamiflu and Rimantadine and
told to stay away from everyone for
at least seven days after the symp-
tomns start.
"My nose is constantly running,
I'm coughing, nauseous and vomit-
ing," Leslie said. "I've also been run-
ning a fever of 102 to 103."
"It's just miserable!"
According to Gretl Plessinger,
communications director for the Flor-
ida Department of Corrections, there
are three confirmed cases of H1N1I
at Lancaster Correctional Institute.
At press time seven inmates were in
the infimary, all showing symptoms
and 11 were being isolated because
they had been sick, but were feeling
better. According to Plessinger," after
three cases of HIN1 are confirmed
within a facility, no additional testing
is done. If an imate shows signs of


Leslie Thigpen
H1N1, they are treated; but there will
be no other official confirmations of
cases within Lancaster Correctional
Institute. Plessinger explained that
there is no way of knowing how many


employees have, also tested positive
for H1N1 because they would have
gone to a medical facility outside the
compound.
The Gilchrist County Health De-
partment and The Florida Depart-
ment of Health offer the following
recommendations to help decrease
the spread of this illness and flu-like
illnesses:
People with respiratory illness
should stay home from work or
school to avoid spreadiIng infections,
including influenza, to others.
Avoid close contact with people
who are coughing or otherwise ap-
pear ill.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose,
and mouth.
Wash hands frequently to lessen
the spread of respiratory illness.
People experiencing coughing, fe-
ver and fatigue, and possibly along
with diarrhea and vomiting, should
contact their physician. If you think
you have influenza, please call
your health care provider to discuss
whether you need to be seen in their
office or the emergency department
or stay home. For more information
you may call 352-463-3120.


Rowland Blvd. gets afresh look from volunteers


By Carrie A. Mizell
Residents of Rowland Boulevard
in Trenton were surprised recently
when a church group from Gaines-
ville drove up one Saturday morning
and began clearing weeds, mowing
lots and pressure washing homes.
Many asked, "Why?"
The group of 25, who are all mem-
bers of Grace at Fort Clark United
Methodist Church, were showing
their "Faith in Action."
Paul Emery, mission director at the
Newberry Road church, implement-
ed the mission work, explained Julie
Cole, a church member and volun-
teer. The church foregoes one service
each quarter and spends the weekend
in service to the community at nearly
a dozen locations throughout north
central Florida.
Deemed "Faith in Action" the mis-
sion projects draw anywhere from
200 to 300 volunteers from within the
church, Cole said.
"We go to nursing homes and con-
duct a service," Cole said. "We go to
neighborhoods and community cen-
ters."
During the weekend of July 18,
Rowland Boulevard was just one of
12 projects the church members tar-
geted.
Once they arrived in Trenton the
group, which included five men from
a Hispanic church in Gainesville,
worked from 9:30 a.m. to just after 1
p.m. mowing lawns, power washing
homes and mobile homes and clean-
ing up trash.
"We got a couple of 20 yard dump-
sters and told all the residents they
could trash whatever bulk items they
wanted to get rid of," Cole said. "Our
goal is to provide some assistance on
those costly projects.
The five men from the Hispanic
church are really reaching out to resi-
dents of Bell and Trenton, Cole ex-
plained.


Mobile homes along Rowland Boulevard in Trenton were pressure washed and weeds were cut down by
volunteers from Fort Clark United MethodistChurch in Gainesville.


According to Cole, the goal is sim-
ple, show people that God is love and
that he inspires the volunteers to help
others.
"Though it's not really a big deal,
it is the least we can do to show our
neighbors that God has their backs,"
Cole said.
Diane Rondolet, code enforcement
officer for Gilchrist County, met with
the volunteers the day before the
clean up to establish a plan of action.
According to Cole, Rondolet is doing
a great job for the county.
"She [Rondolet] was there pick-
ing weeds herself that day and she
brought a couple of friends who
wanted to duplicate the effort else-
where in the county," Cole said. "Di-
ane is really dedicated."
Those friends were Carl and Gene-
va Cornwell of the Character Council
of Gilchrist County, who are currently
considering forming a service group
similar to the church's initiative.
"Oh, how this could be re-created
by others," Cole said. "It's not that
hard, or expensive. It's work, but also
lots of fun."

Acker resigns


Gilchrist County
changes health
insurance providers
By John Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action to review their health
care insurance during their Monday
afternoon meeting. This discussion
identified their present insurance car-
rier, Blue Cross-Blue Shield had sub-
mitted a health insurance premium
increase of 17 percent to the county
a short time ago. The board discussed
in a previous meeting to go out for
bids for health insurance, to see if
more affordable insurance is avail-
able to their employees.
The county received information
from United Health Care insurance
company. A team of representatives
presented a proposed comparable in-
surance plan to the board. This team
had met earlier with a committee of
county representatives, including
constitutional officers, involving in-
surance coverage for employees in
each of their offices. The commit-
tee recommended accepting a plan
from United Health Care Insurance
Company. After further review, the
team explained the proposed insur-
ance coverage would save Gilchrist
County $100,000 in their annual pre-
miums.
The board looked at several differ-
ent options involving the insurance
coverage. Sheriff Daniel Slaughter
asked th' board and thi insurance
team if Sheriff's Office employees
a primary physician, would
these doctors be approved to see
these older, employees? The team ex-
plained that yes, if the doctor is not
on the identified list, a small out of
pocket expense will give that em-
ployee their preferred physician.
The Commission following a
lengthy discussion supported the
committee's recommendation to go
with United Health Care for a one-
year period. The board voted unani-
mously in support of this action. It
was reported that Blue Cross-Blue
Shield on Monday submitted another
Insurance proposal that reduced their
premium increase to 8 percent.

The Trenton City Commission
voted on Monday night to make the
proposed millage rate 3.00 mills for
the 2009-2010 budget year.
City Manager Jared Ottenwess
and Mayor Glen Thigpen, along with
staff, have been working to balance
the upcoming budget within the 3.00
mills and have done so successfully.
This is the same millage rate that the
city uses in the current budget year.
Actually this will be a lesser amount
of tax collected than the current year
because the taxable values have de-
creased so the city will receive fewer
tax dollars.
The motion was made by Commis-
sioner Randy Rutter and seconded by
Commissioner Arlene Wilks to keep
the village rate the same.
The commissioners along with
City Attorney David Miller Lang and
City Manager Jarred Ottenwess had a
lengthy discussion with the City Fire
and several local firefighters about
physical examinations for volunteer
firefighters.


The Florida League of Cities in-
sures the City of Trenton, and they
have. asked the city to require all vol-
unteer firefighters to have a drug test
and a physical examination.
There is some concern for several
longtime volunteer firemen.
The fire chief and several firefight-
ers said these individuals have a great
deal of experience and are very valu-
able to the department.
The jist of the discussion was that
the department needs these firemen
and their knowledge.
After a long discussion, the City
Manager and the fire chief will meet
and iron out some of the details of
who will have physical and when
they will be given.
These concerns will be addressed
at an upcoming meeting.
Another item of interest was that
Kyle Stone from the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Chamber of Commerce has set the
date of "Christmas on Main Street"
in Trenton for Friday, Dec. 11, 2009.

the cost of renewing vehicle registra-
tions and driver licenses. "Although
I personally voted against the fee
increases, they were still passed by
the majority of the Legislature and
go into effect September 1st," stated
Representative Debbie Boyd.
The fee increases for renewing
vehicle registrations varies by the
weight of the vehicle. The cost of re-
newing a driver license increases to
$48 and the tax collector's service fee
for processing driver's license trans-
actions will increase to $6.25.
Representative Boyd encourages
citizens to take advantage of a pro-
vision of state law that allows vehi-
cle owners to renew their tags up to
three months before the tags expire.


Residents can save a little by renew-
ing their tags before September 1
and paying the current fee. Waiting
until after September 1 means driv-
ers will pay at a higher rate. And to
really lock in savings, renew for a
two-year period and pay the current
fee rate for both years, which doubles
the savings.
The benefit of early-renewal is
similar for driver's license renewals.
Representative Boyd urges motorists
whose driver licenses expire this year
or in 2010 to renew before September
1. The renewal will extend licenses
by eight years.

es, please follow the link below to

Mr. Marvin Sanders
I was thankful to Mr. Marvin Sanders of Bell when he stopped by the Jour-
nal last week to drop off some delicious peaches he had grown. The peaches
were of the clear white seed and clear orange seed varieties. These peaches
were not real large like those you might buy in the grocery store from Georgia
or South Carolina, but they were as extremely juicy and had a better flavor
than those larger varieties.
Mr. Sanders, a retired barber in the area, enjoys spending time on his trac-
tor gardening during the season. One of his peach trees is shown in the back-
ground behind his tractor.


HeYwt Madler;


While standing in line at the gro-
cery store recently, I noticed the cov-
ers of several magazines warning
about how our troubled economy is
negatively affecting families and rela-
tionships. According to these sourc-
es, money is the number one relation-
ship killer. On one hand, I have to
agree: family members quarrel over
money and go years without speak-
ing... friendships end over loans not
given or not repaid...and marriages
experience huge struggles when both
sides aren't working together toward
a common financial goal. But on the
other hand, let's be careful to see the
real problem here: money itself is
amoral.. .it can be a blessing or curse,
depending on its use. It is the nature
of the person using the money that
determines its morality.
The Bible speaks often to the issue
of money because it is a fact of life:
we need money to live. I Timothy
6:7-10 records some basic truths:
"For we brought nothing into the
world, and we can take nothing out of
it. But if we have food and clothing,
we will be content with that. People
who want to get rich fall into tempta-
tion and a trap and into many foolish
and harmful desires that plunge men
into ruin and destruction. For the
love of money is a root of all kinds
of evil..."


I once heard a joke about a greedy,
miser of a man who hoarded money
his entire life and was bound and de-
termined to take it with him when
he died. He instructed his wife to
place his wealth in the casket when
he passed away; he wanted no one
else, including her, to enjoy his
money after he was gone. After his
funeral, friends and.family were curi-
ous to know whether she carried out
his wishes; "Of course," she replied,
"but instead of handling all that cash,
it was much more convenient to write
him a check!" No way around it...
you can't take it with you!
The word "content" is defined as
"quietness of mind; satisfaction."
When we are struggling with finan-
cial issues, isn't "quietness of mind"
the first thing to go.. .even more so if
our struggle includes other people?
But notice the last part of this scrip-
ture... it tells us that the root of the
problem is not money, but the love of
money is where all kinds of problems
begin. Constantly overextended on
your budget? Continually arguing
with your spouse over money? A
workaholic with no time for your
family? These are just a few of the
"temptations and traps that plunge
men into ruin." One of the biggest
traps here is to think that more money
will solve these problems. In Luke

COOKINGANDBy CARRYING' ON

By Cindy Jo Aye rs


From time to time I run across a re-
ally good home remedy that I gladly
share with our readers.
At our home place, particularly
down at the barn, the mosquitoes are
really bad. John, my husband, is al-
ways down there in the summer tin-
kering on something, and those mos-
quitoes work him over.
Recently I heard about a home
remedy for bugs that really works.
John tested it at the barn and did not
get a single bite after applying this
simple mix of two ingredients that
almost everyone has in their kitchen
all the time.
Just mix up one part white vinegar
and one part pure vanilla. About a
tablespoon of each will be enough
for two people. After hearing about
this home remedy on RFDTV I just
had to try it, and low and behold it
works great and it doesn't even smell
bad. This remedy would be great for
children because I don't like spraying
small children down with commer-
cial repellent because I hate for them
to breathe that stuff. Besides, I have
never liked the way it smells; most of
the time I will not use the spray repel-
lent because of the smell.
John, on the other hand, seems to
attract mosquitoes; so he can't do
without the repellent. My mother has
even tested it for me while pulling
weeds out of her flower beds. She
has been working on her beds and
the mosquitoes have been bad at her
house also. She saidthat the vinegar/
vanilla mixture doesn't seem to clog
up her skin pores like commercial re-
pellent.
There is another remedy that I plan
to try soon. A friend told me that ba-
sil plants will keep house flies away.
She said that she had two basil plants


Goldman that are backed by the gov-
ernminent.
A large real estate broker recently
complained bitterly that the new
Home Valuation Code of Conduct
governing appraisals is holding back
home sales. An example cited was
a dispute over whether a home had
three bedrooms, per a local appraiser,
rather than a non-local appraiser's re-
port of two.
The bank sided with the non-local
and probably more conservative ap-
praisal and the deal went south. Heck,
in the good old days a dog house in
the back yard would have passed for
a guest suite. Does anybody remem-
ber how and why we got into the cur-
rent economic morass?
Meanwhile, politicians are under
fire for the excessive influence be-
ing exerted on the regulatory bodies
responsible for accounting standards.
Congress, under pressure from bank
lobbyists, has tried to force a loosen-
ing of those standards.
Pushing back is an international
group comprised of regulators and
corporate officials whose recentreport
stated that accounting rules did not
cause the financial crisis, but rather a
lack of them. Furthermore, the group
warned against forcing changes that
would enable banks to manage earn-

Jessica Jfangford receives Jloyd

hoden Scholarship


The North Florida Fair Associa-
tion has announced the Year 2009
winner of the annual Lloyd Rhoden
Scholarship. The Scholarship Fund
was established in 1985 to honor the
late Lloyd Rhoden, former Manager
of the Fair and retired 4-H County
Extension Director.
Each year the Fair Association
chooses a student who plans to
major in an agricultural field at a
Florida institution of higher learn-
ing. The annual award continues up
to four years as long as the recipient
continues to meet the requirements.
This year's Lloyd Rhoden Agri-
cultural Scholarship goes to Ms. Jes-
sica Langford of Gilchrist County.
Jessica is the daughter of Sheila and
Mark Langford. Along with being
an active member in her school's
Beta Club, Jessica has also been
involved in, and a member of, the
Fellowship of Christian Students.
Jessica has also participated in a
wide variety of community events
and activities through her involve-
ment with 4-H and FFA. She has
served on a number of committees
within these organizations and in
2008 became President of her 4-H
group.
Jessica's love of animals and the
experiences she has had working
with them came from being around,
and responsible for, a variety of an-
imals on the farm where she grew
up. This, in turn, led to the realiza-


Jessica Langford receives Lloyd
Rhoden Scholarship
tion that she wanted a career that
would allow her to work with ani-
mals and help them in some way.
In the fall, Jessica will be attend-
ing Santa Fe Community College
where she will be pursuing a de-
gree in the animal sciences with
the goal of a career in Veterinary
Pharmaceutical Sales.
The North Florida Fair Associa-
tion applauds its 2009 Lloyd Rho-
den Agriculture Scholarship win-
ner. Since the scholarship began,
more than $140,000 has been made
available to recipients to further
their education.

The Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge Youth Conserva-
tion Corps (YCC) has painted their
last gate, taken their last boat ride
to maintain the Cedar Keys NWR,
and guided their last group of young
photographers along the River Trail.
Their eight weeks of employment at
the 53,000 acre Refuge has ended.
While other teens swamin in the
springs and took family vacations,
Miranda Haire, Cassie Manz, Tevin
Mills, and Vance Renaud completed
projects that kept them in the heat
and humidity all summer. Their pri-
ority for the summer was to maintain
the many Refuge visitor-use areas
and facilities but, in addition, there
are always "duties as assigned."
Trailers have been repaired, trails cut
back, electrical utilities installed, gat-
ed roads cleared of downed trees for
heavy equipment access, and their
last pay check awaits them.
While the YCC worked in a variety
of disciplines, Refuge staff coached
the students in how to effectively ap-
ply for jobs, how to interview well,
and how to make themselves compet-
itive in the slow job market. "We not
only tell them, but show them how
to maneuver the federal job search
website, provide them with effec-
tive language to use when filling out


their resume, and give them pointers
for standing out in the ever-growing
crowd of applicants," says Adminis-
trative Assistant Terry Kelly.
On their last day, staff treated the
Youth Conservation Corps to a boat
trip down the Suwannee River and
farewell lunch last Thursday. "We
wanted to show appreciation for all
the work they did for us that would
have been postponed due to other
staff priorities," reported Jason
Coates, heavy equipment operator at
the Refuge.
"I'm thrilled these young members
of the community took advantage of
this opportunity. They did a great job
and were an asset to the entire Ref-
uge staff. I believe they learned a lot
about National Wildlife Refuges. We
look forward to next summer and a
new group of local students," said
Refuge Manager John Kasbohm.
The Lower Suwannee National
Wildlife Refuge, part of the US Fish
& Wildlife Service hires students
each summer for the Youth Conser-
vation Corps. Not only is it summer
income, but the learning experience
serves as a superlative job reference
for young adults starting in the work-
ing world. For more information call
the Refuge at 352/493-0238.

STUDENT ATTENDANCE
One of the best ways to insure a student's success is to insure that
student is in school every day! Studies show that poor academic
performance is closely related to a student's daily attendance.
Please review the following attendance-related information:
* If a student is absent, the student must make up the
work.
* An excused absence will be granted for personal illness
or death of the immediate family, established religious
holiday, and for emergencies approved by the
principal.
* A note must be provided for the absence within three
days upon return to school or the absence will remain
unexcused.
* Unexcused absences include shopping trips,
suspensions, vacations, truancy, or other avoidable
absences.
SUpon the sixth absence (excused or, unexcused) in a
grading period, the stuidht shall-fail the class unless
they pass a mastery test. A student must have a passing
grade in the class before being eligible to take the
mastery test. A zero will be assigned for any work not
made up.
* School-related activities are not considered an absence.
* Any family trip must have PRIOR administrative
approval for the absence to be excused.
* Notes will be accepted from parents for five absences
for each 18-week grading period. All absences over
five in the 18-week grading period will require further
documentation (i.e., medical provider, religious
official, funeral notice, etc.).
* Administration will have the final decision regarding
all absences.
it* **it ******* * * !* ** ** lC* **

STUDENT GRADES AND PINNACLE


To check on your child's progress online, go to our website at www.gilchristschools.org. The link, Pinnacle, in Quick
Links will allow you to check your student's assignments, grades, absences, etc., on a daily basis. Each student has a
unique ID number and Pin that the parent must use to access this data. If you had access to grades last year and your
student remains at the same school, the ID number and Pin for your student will be used again this year. If your student
is moving to a new school (this includes promotion to middle/high school), is new to our county, or if you did not
previously have access, you may pick up the security form at the front office of your student's school. Once you have
completed this form, return it to your school and it will be processed by the MIS department. Your student's ID number
and Pin will then be eithlier mailed to you or sent to your student's school for pick-up depending on your choice. Once
you enter the link, you will see an introductory page that will explain and give directions for using the website,
If at any time you are concerned about information or grades you see on your student, please feel free to contact your
student's teacher. They can be contacted via the front ofilice of your school or via email by using the
www.gilchristschools.org website and choosing the following links: Schools, your student's individual school link, and
finally, the Faculty link.
Our website and its features continue to grow to meet your needs. Please also check the programs listed on the Parent's
link on the website.

~ My Mother ~ Veda Eula Mae Washington
On August 4, 1999, the world lost a good woman; my beloved
mother, Veda Eula Mae Washington. She was born December 9,1918
to the late Aaron and Pearlie Marie Nathan, Tallahassee, FL. She
married my father, a kind and gentle man, the late Rufus Washington,
also from Tallahassee, on July 17, 1937. 1 was born onApril 11, 1938.
If they were still alive, it would've been 72 years of marriage on July
17, 2009. They both lived to see their 57th anniversary. '"
Whenever 1 think of my mother, I'm reminded of the word of
Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived. Solomon asserts: "Who can
find a virtuous woman? For her price is far above rubies." Veda Eula
Mae Washington was more precious than rubies or gold. Not because
she was my mother, but rather, because she was a woman of
impeccable character and vigor.
In 1943 she attended cosmetology school in Tallahassee. Infused
with tonicity, she repudiated the idea of being a maid in someone's
house or taking in washing and ironing. After graduating, she
returned to Trenton and opened a beauty shop. It was named "Stay December 9, 1918 August 4, 1999
Rite Beauty Shop." Mom operated it until the Mid-1970s. Although
she was often busy at the shop, she never forsook her duties as a wife and mother. She had no machines to do
the heavy lifting. In fact, there were no such things in the black community as an electric or gas range to cook
the family meals. Moreover, there were no washing machines to wash clothing or dryers to dry clothing.
My brother Luciousand I took turns boiling water. It was our task to build a fire underneath an iron kettle
used to heat water for her to wash clothes in. When the water was heated to her specification, it was poured
into a large tub. Subsequently, the clothing to be washed was scrubbed on an apparatus called a washboard. I
still have one among many antique possessions. Monday were wash day. Wash day was cumbersome.
Tuesday were ironing day. There were no electric irons nor permanent pressed fabrics. All outer clothing
needed to be ironed after it was washed. Clothing was pressed by heating a heavy iron (I have one of mom's
original irons, a #7) in a fire, usually in the fireplace or a wood stove. Imagine what it must have been like to
execute this process in North Central Florida during the summer. She never ever allowed us to go hungry or
scrounge. We were always spiffy; and discipline and obedience was the order of the day. Talking back (back
talking) when you were told to do something, no matter how distasteful, was not tolerated. If children do not
respect their parents, rest assured, they will not respect themselves or others.
Based upon today's manner of speaking, I would describe my iiiliei .is a "Strong Black Woman." This
phrase was used copiously during the 2008 Presidential campaign as an ethereal "put down" of accomplished
black women. From my vantage point, it's a euphuism for a brilliant, self-confident, assertive black woman,
which describes my mother. She had virtually no formal education. Yet, she was enriched with "common
sense;" and clothed with energy and dignity.
I can hardly believe it has been ten years since my mother passed away. liven so, my memory of her is just
as vivid today as it was during my childhood. Time and space forbids l'urther approbation.

Library youth learn about s-n-a-k-e-s

Wilma Matucci is shown holding a stuffed diamond-back rattlesnake
named "Homer." A speaker from the Gilchrist Soil and Water Con-
servation brought a few friends to the Trenton Library on Thursday,
July 30 as she presented a program on Florida snakes. During the pre-
sentation the youth were asked about how many species of snakes live
in Florida? Some replied with over 1000, 100, or 60. Actually, there
are about 44 to 45 species of snakes in Florida.


Gentry is new manager at Hart Springs
Continued from page 1


Ron McQueen told the board the
Park Manager's position paid the for-
mer park manager $26,800. This sal-
ary involved a housing allowance of
the new home at the park and cellular
phone expense.
Gentry told the board that he lives
within one half mile of the park and
was not interested in moving to the
property although he explained he
has spent 80 hours on the premises
this past week.
McQueen told the board that an
adjustment needed to be made in the
salary to compensate for the park
manager not using the residence on
the property. McQueen told the board
that with the improvements of furni-
ture in the house, the house would be
available to be rented out on a weekly
or monthly basis.
Gentry asked the board if his sal-
ary could be increased to $35,000.
This would give him a full-time, in-
terim park manager's position but he
would not receive any benefits due to
his interim status.


Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion for Mitchell Gentry
to be hired as full time park manager
at Hart Springs with the $35,000 sal-
ary. Commissioner Tommy Langford
agreed with a second for discussion.
The board asked with the house
rented out, what was the estimated
return to the Hart Springs budget.
McQueen told the commission that
a residence at Otter Springs is rented
out for $90 a night with it available
for weekends, weekly and monthly
rental.
The County Administrator esti-
mated the return could be from $20K
to $25,000 depending on the weather.
The board voted 5-0 to hire Mitchell
Gentry as the full-time park manager
with the $35,000 salary and rent the
house for $125 a night.
The commission discussed the
boardwalk which leads through the
woods to the river; Gentry explained
that the boardwalk still needs some
work to be completed before it is safe
for the public's use.

Tigers 15 and under had great season


By Todd Bryant
The Suwannee Valley Leagues 15
and under Tigers played in the North
Florida Babe Ruth State Tourna-
ment in Sanford, Florida. The tour-
nament was held from July 16 22
at the Historic Sanford Municipal
Stadium. The South Florida State
Tournament was held at the same
time in Altamonte Springs. In the
first round, Suwannee Valley drew
Julington Creek from Jacksonville.
The Tigers struggled on the mound
giving up 9 walks and a balk. Justin
Crown pitched 2 2/3 innings, giving
up 4 runs on 5 hits and 3 strikeouts;
Corbin Wiggins pitched 1/3 inning
with a strikeout and 3 walks; and
Kolton Mims pitched 4 innings giv-
ing up 3 hits and 4 runs with 1 strike-
out. Offensively, Suwannee Valley
struggled at times but managed to get
10 hits. The Tigers had a chance to
blow the game open in the first inning
but were not able to capitalize with
bases loaded and no outs. Jonathan
Rowe had 3 singles and 3 RBI's and
Jonathan Smith had a double and a
single. The game was close through
all 7 innings but the Tigers couldn't


pull it out and lost 8-7. In the second
game Suwannee Valley would have
to play Bradford County. Bradford
had lost to Tallahassee 11-1 in the
first round. The Tigers started Hunt-
er Williams on the mound. Williams
pitched a no hitter, going all 7 innings
for the Tigers. Williams gave up no
runs with 4 strikeouts and 5 walks.
Offensively the Tigers pounded out
15 hits. Hunter Parrish had 3 singles
and a double; Clif Bryant had 2 sin-
gles, a double and 3 RBI's; Jonathan
Smith had 3 singles; Stephen Smith
had a single and a double; and Hunter
Williams added a double. The Tigers
beat Bradford 9-0 and would move
on to the next elimination game.
Femrnandina Beach had lost to Argyle
(Jacksonville) in the second round
and would play Suwannee Valley
on Saturday afternoon. The Tigers
struggled offensively, only getting
,3 hits. Fernandina only gave up 2
walks to the Tigers and played solid
defense. The Tigers started Justin
Crown on the mound. Crown pitched
1 1/3 innings, giving up 4 runs on 4
hits. Jonathan Smith relieved Crown
and pitched 5 2/3 innings, giving up 3


runs on 5 hits, with 4 walks. Corbin
Wiggins relieved Smith in the top of
the seventh and retired the side in
three batters. Suwannee Valley lost
7-1 and ended its season. Tallahas-
see was the eventual North Florida
tournament winner, with Argyle fin-
ishing second. Longwood won the
South Florida division. Both Talla-
hassee and Longwood advanced to
the Southeast Regional tournament
in Lumberton, NC. The Tigers would
like to thank all the businesses and
individuals/families that helped make
their season a success. Without the
support, of the community it would
have been difficult to have partici-
pated in the state tournament. The
Tigers can be proud of their accom-
plishments they won the Babe Ruth
Florida State Small League Tourna-
ment, they won the District 1 (Large)
Tournament, and finished 5th in the
Babe Ruth North Florida Large State
Tournament. Even though Suwan-
nee Valley Leagues is a very small
Cal Ripken/Babe Ruth organization,
it continues to produce winners that
are recognized throughout the North
Florida area.
