SGraduation prompts a father, son to brave Mt. Hood


A lookout from the summit of Mount Hood, which is located at the northern end of the Oregon cascades,
reached the summit at 5 a.m. From
the summit the men could see Mt.
Adam, St. Helens and Mt. Rainier to
the north and Mt. Jefferson and the
Three Sisters to the south,
"It was so cold on the summit that
we looked around quickly and only
spent .maybe 15 to 20 minutes up
there," Denny said.
While it was truly an experience of
a lifetime, and one that neither father
or son will soon forget, Denny said
he may take his younger son to Costa
Rica on a surfing trip for his high
school graduation rather than braving
the glaciers of Mt. Hood once again.
At right: Denny and Hallie
George are shown with their son
Will at his graduation.


By CarrieA. Mizell
For many high school seniors the
promise of graduation means free-
dom, days spent lounging by the
water and carefree time spent with
friends.
For Will George, a 2009 graduate
of Trenton High School, the months
prior to graduation were spent train-
ing for his graduation trip, a gruel-
ing climb up Oregon's famed Mount
Hood.
Will and his father, Denny George,
traveled to Mount Hood, which is lo-
cated at the northern end of the Or-
egon cascades in June to climb the
state's highest peak.
"It was a celebration of Will's
graduation." Denny explained. "One
we were woefully unprepared for ...
if wastough!"
Despite spending several months
running and lifting weights in prepa-
ration for their guided climb, both
Will and Denny were rocked by just
how strenuous the 10 hours of active
climbing would be on their lean bod-
les, not to mention the cold tempera-
tures. .
After registering with Timberime
Mountain Guides of Bend, Oregon,
the men spent the first day of their
summit climb experience taking a
Basic Snow Climbing Course which
culminated the next day, July 20, with
a snow cat ride to the top of the Tim-
berline Ski Area, and from there a 10-
hour ascent of Mount Hood. It being
both Will and Denny's first climb, the
men opted for this entry level techni-
cal climb, which required them.to use
a rope, crampons and an ice axe. .
"It was raining and sleeting the day
.before our climb and Will had been
sick," Denny said. "I really wasn't
sure if we were going to be able to
doit."
With a guide leading them, Will
and Denny began their climb at mid-
night. The hours spent climbing in the
cold, dark night paid off when they

Corbin and John Barley, owners of
Lilly Springs, have made an applica-
tion for a bulk water transfer permit
through the Suwannee River Water
Management District.
Gilchrist Cotmty attorney John
McPherson presented the proposed
resolution to the Commission in their
August 17 meeting,
The Commission was advised that
the owners of the 10 acre property
which runs along the Santa Fe River
in north Gilchrist County had made


. an application for a bulk spring water
transfer permit after they appeared
before the county commission during
their August 3, 2009 meeting.
The board agreed on Monday
that public use of the Lilly Springs
property was still a good idea, but
they changed their mind on passing
a resolution after finding out that the
partners were seeking a bulk water
transfer permit and trying to sell the
property to the State of Florida.
Commissioner Randy Durden


made the motion to deny Resolution
2009-30, and Commissioner D. Ray
Harrison, Jr. agreed with a second for
discussion.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
told the board that he was still in
favor of the Lilly Springs property
becomitag a public use park, but he
couldn't support the resolution after
the owners made an application for
bulk water transfer permit.
The board voted 5-0 to deny the
resolution.


The partners had begun negotia-
tions with the Suwannee River Water
Management District to sell the prop-
erty to the State of Florida. Accord-
ing to the Commission, the partners
were asking $1.8 million from the
State of Florida, but the SRWMD re-
ported they were willing to consider
$500,000 for the 10-acre tract that in-
cluded Lilly Springs.

For SSg Jon Raegan Guzman, his
"Welcome Home" from a second
tour in Afghanistan was a real one to
build memories.
After serving for 12 months at U.S.
Army Camp Bostick located in Na
ray, a northeastern city of the country,
Guzman, upon his return, was glad to
touch American soil and to expert
ence a real moving sense of all the
wonderful freedoms which our coun
try affords us, especially the freedom
of mobility without constraints.
This time around, Jon's military
position was what would be con
sidered in "civilian" terms as an air .
traffic controller, making sure that
all helicopters coming in and out of
the area with military personnel and
supplies did not fly into each other-
His.job was truly strategic, being one
of 12 support troops assisting every
trooper in front-line combat duty.
Jon's first tour in Afghanistan in
2005-2006 was spent in Kabul. The
experience taught him much about
the people and the terrain, as he went
out on team patrols.
The latest tour taught him about the
differences ilr middle eastern tribal
culture and government.
He even learned of the richness of
the area in gems and as a result he has

In November he will begin his sta-
tus as an instructor of a new genera-
tion of recruits at Ft. Jackson, South
Carolina, where he will be stationed
until 2012.

THURSDAYAUGUST 202 9


Name: Emily Austin
Lives: Trenton
Family: Pyrents, Aric and Stephanie
Austin and one brother, Taylor, who
is 13.
School: Home-schooled my whole
life, but I used to play softball at
Trenton. I am in 10th grade.
Hobbies: Hanging out with my
friends.
Favorite book: A series of Christian
books by Robin Jones Gunn.
Favorite food: Pizza
Who do people say you look like?
My mom.
If you could meet anyone, who
would it be? The "Twilight" cast or
Zac Efron. *
Who is your hero and why? My
parents because they are always
there for me. I can go to them with
pretty much anything.
What is something not many


people know about you? The fact
that I am homeschooled. I like be-
ing homeschooled because I have
a flexible schedule, but at the same
time I wonder what high school
would be like.
Future plans: Go to college.


A couple of months ago the Jour-
nal turned 79 years old. I'm pretty
sure that make us the oldest privately
owned business in the county. During
that time the Ayers family has been
the sole owners except for the first
few years of operation. John's father
purchased the business from Clara E.
Har11ee. Mrs. Hadlee sold the busi-
itess because her husband's health was
failing. Mr. Ayers managed the paper
and was editor for several years be-
fore purchasing it in 1939. The Note
and Chattel Mortgage when the Jour-
nal was sold stated that the Journal
was housed in a tin building located
on Wade Street North of the Court-
house. It also listed some of the con-
tents which included one Carangston
flat bed drum press, size 32x48, two
'slate make up stones, approximately
50 pounds of lead, slugs and borders,
four cases of 10 point type cap and
lower, and one case of 18 point type.
Other type and various other motors
and job presses were also listed.
Through the years the Journal has
reported many changes in the county.
In 1939 the population of the county
was just over 4,000 people. In 2007
the population was over 17, 000 peo-
ple.
J. Min Ayers said, that some of
the hardest years to stay in business
were during the great depression
which lasted from 1929 until the
early 1940s. During those years the
Journal was mostly a one-sheet of
newsprint which when folded made
up four pages
We have an old 1940s Journal
which had a full-page Journal ad
which listed all the things Mr. Ayers
would take in trade for a newspaper
subscription. Some of the items were
live turkeys, cane syrup and cured
hams.
I know not everyone who reads the
Gilchrist County Journal today knew
J. Min Ayers (John's father), but he
was an amazing person who truly


loved the people of this county.
I would like to take this opportu-
nity to thank our many subscribers
and advertisers who have supported
the Journal throughout the years.
As the years have rolled by we
have printed many happy articles
about events in the county including
weddings and birth announcements.
At times we have printed sad news
also. But happy or sad, the job of the
local paper is to report the news. The
readers should know the Journal staff
rejoices when the news is good and
mourns with you when the news is
heartbreaking.
Please feel free to drop by with
any news and photos. We are always
happy to hear from our loyal readers.
Thanks again for letting three gen-
erations of our family and the best
staff anywhere be a part of your lives
for the past 70 years.

1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 can dark red kidney beans
1/2 cup water
1 envelope taco seasoning
1 tube of refrigerated crescent rolls
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
3 cups crushed nacho tortilla chips
3 cups shredded lettuce
1 pint grape tomatoes, cut in half

top with lettuce knd tomatoes. Serie
immediately.


induced moves dictated by declining
sales, bringing to market its Poppy
line.
For its 2009 fiscal year ended June
27, net sales were $3.23 billion, up
2 percent from a year ago. Exclud-
ing unusual items, net income totaled
$622 million, or $1.91 per share, as
compared earnings of $2.06 in 2008.
My earnings. estimate from a year
ago of $2.30 turned out to be a bit too
optimistic. Nonetheless, the shares
are up 43 percent this year, closing
recently at $29.85.
This fiscal year the company plans
to open about 20 new North Ameri-
can retail stores, at least six North
American factory outlets, and about
10 new locations in Japan. It is also
accelerating store openings in China
with 15 new locations. There are 30
international wholesale locations
planned with an enhanced strategy
for Western Europe. Again, these ac-
tions speak to the company's planned
and well executed growth strategy.
Coach also plans to bring to mar-
ket its new Reed Krakoff label, des-
ignated for launch in late 2010. The
line will encompass a variety of
categories, including ready-to-wear,
handbags, accessories, footwear and
jewelry. The concept is designed to
engage a segment of the retail market
that heretofore has not been a buyer,
of the company's products.
The intrinsic value of the shares
using a discounted earnings model,
with a conservative earnings growth
rate of 9 percent and a 15 percent
discount rate, is $35 per share. The
more conservative free cash flow to
the firm model produces an intrinsic
value of $45 per share.
My earnings estimate for fiscal
2009 is $2.108 per share and I have a
12-month target price on the shares
of $35 for an estimated gain of 17
percent. There is also a 1 percent
dividend yield.

Fish kills common
during summer, but
need reporting
The recent rains and cloudy skies
are causing problems along the
Withlacoochee River and in lakes
around Citrus and Sumter counties.
Residents are reporting fish kills in
various areas, and fisheries biologists
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
think the number and severity of fish
kills could increase over the next sey


eral weeks.
'We've already had reports of fish
ki,11s in the Inverness and Floral City
areas as well as various locations on
the Withlacoochee River. These kills
are a result of low dissolved oxy-
gen (DO) levels," said Allen Mar-
tin, regional fisheries biologist for
the FWC's Division of Freshwater
Fisheries Management in Lake City.
"And it could get worse in the com-
ing weeks if we get tropical storm or
hurricane activity."
What do heavy rains and cloudy
skies have to do with fish suffocating
from a lack of oxygen?
Ironically, a lack of sunshine in the
Sunshine State heralds the beginning
of problems. The process starts with
overcast skies, hot summer days and
rainy weather.
Photosynthesis creates most of the
oxygen that fish breathe. The pro-
cess allows waterborne microscopic
plants to use sunlight to produce and
add dissolved oxygen to the water-
However, when overcast skies per-
sist for several days, there is often
not enough sunlight to power the
oxygen-making process that supports
fish life.
Heavy rain and wind from thunder-
storms add to the problem by stirring
up bottom sediments that mix with
good-quality water near the surface,
compounding the problem. Rainwater
runoff can also wash large amounts
of decaying plant and animal mate-
rial into the water body. In the decay
process, bacteria use dissolved oxy-
gen in the water to break down plant
and animal matter, further lowering
oxygen levels.
"We are seeing this occur in the
Green Swamp area," Martin said.
"The rains are releasing a pulse of
poor-quality (low DO) water into
the Withlacoochee River that is then
flowing into the Tsala Apopka chain
of lakes."
Fish can often be seen coming to
the surface of the water and gulping
air. Ultimately, the fish die and float
to the surface. .
"The size of the fish kills depends
on how low the oxygen levels are.
They can range from only a few in-
dividuals being affected to massive
kills, where thousands of fish die."
Many different species of fish have
succumbed to current fish kills, in-
cluding largemouth bass, bluegill,
black crappie and catfish.
The good news is that most water
bodies do not suffer repeat perfor-
mances every year. In fact, most wa-
ter bodies go years without suffering
a major fish kill. Fish populations
usually replemsh themselves natu-
rally from surviving fish.
"In spite of summer fish kills, most
Florida lakes are in relatively healthy
shape, and fish populations remain
stable. Angling success generally is


not affected over the long haul, even
after events that might appear serious
to the untrained eye," said Martin.
Still, it is important for biologists
like Martin to keep track of the loca-
tion and extent of fish kills in natural
lakes and estuaries to see if there are
serious problems developing in an
ecosystem that might require investi-
gation or restorative measures.
Floridians can report fish kills- in
natural water bodies to the FWC's
Fish Kill Hotline at 800-636-0511,
the FWC's Lake City office at 386-
758-0525 or online at MyFWC.com/
Contact. It is not necessary to report
fish kills in man-made retention or
private ponds.

"Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of
the Lord caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him
, no more; and he went on his way rejoicing" (Acts 8:39).
Ethiopia was 1500 miles away and the treasurer of Candace
the queen was on his way home from Jerusalem. He had
made the long journey to worship in Jerusalem (Acts 8:27)
and was reading aloud from the prophet Isaiah. A man
approaches his chariot and inquires if what he was reading
was understood. He invites the man into his chariot and
beginning from Isaiah 53 the stranger tells a wonderful story
of the man of Isaiah 53.
The Ethiopian is amazed as Philip unravels the mysteries
of Isaiah and shows through the "Law of Moses and the
Prophets and the Psalms" (Luke 24:44) the promise of the
Messiah and His coming. Like Peter on the day of
Pentecost, he tells the story of "Jesus of Nazareth, a Man
attested by God ...,by miracles, wonders, and digns which
God did through Him ... Him, being delivered by the
determined purpose and foreknowledge of God, [was]
taken by lawless hands, [was] crucified, and put to death;
whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death,
because it was not possible that He should be held by it"
(Acts 2:22-24).
The preacher describes the work of Jesus, His teaching
and His commission to others to carry out the message of
salvation. As the eunuch listened his heart burned within
him and Philip opened the Scriptures to him (Luke 24:32).
Finally they came to some water and the Ethiopian says,
"'See, here is water. What hinders me from being
baptized?' Then Philip said, 'If you believe with all your
heart, you may.'And he answered and said, 'Ibelieve that
Jesus Christ is the Son of God.' So he commanded the


chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went
down into the water, and he baptized him" (Acts 8:36-38).
The eunuch went on his way rejoicing because his thirst
for knowledge had been filled by the "Bible study in the
chariot. He thrilled to hear the story of Jesus and how the
Son of God was raised from the dead. The preaching of
Philip helped him understand more clearly the eternal
purpose of God (Ephesians 1:3-12). As a sinful man in need
of grace Philip shows the eunuch the rich mercy and grace
of the Father (Ephesians 2:1-10). The blood of Christ
stained upon Golgotha could now cle se the treasurer of
Candace from his sins (1 John 1:7)
Rejoicing came after the eunuch understood the death,
blirial and resurrection of Jesus (Romans 6:3-9). He did not
rejoice before he was baptized because his sins were not
washed away yet. He rejoiced after they came up out of the
water because he knew then his sins were washed away
(Acts 22:16). What a great trip that was to Ethiopia. How
excited he must have been to return home and spread the
same gospel Philip shared with him in his chariot to his
fellow man.
The gospel of salvation brings about joy. "And there was
great joy in that city" (Acts 8:8). The eunuch had found the
Savior. He rejoiced in the hope of the good news of
salvation for the cleansing of his sins. Rejoice comes from
the idea of "taking possession of He embraced his
salvation with the grace of God and he took fill possession
of it during his ride home and I suspect for the rest of his
life.
What a wonderful story of the good news of God's love
to mankind. Through His Son we can rejoice in our
obedience to the gospel message of Jesus Christ.

always be for the good of the other
person. Honest compliments are al-
ways welcome, but deceptive flattery
truly is a net for our feet and a thief
in disguise. Why is this so? 1) Since
the motive for flattery is self-interest'
it lays a trap to manipulate behavior
from which the flatterer will benefit.
If a simple request would be rejected'
oa caon ecsotn o ) t
dangerous to the recipient when it is
received, (we might say "swallowed
hook, line and sinker") and results
with pride and conceit causing the
person to act foolishly.
It is worth mentioning that we are
all susceptible to flattery because it is
human naturesto enjoy hearing good
things about ourselves, especially
the opinion of others. Interestingly,
the original Hebrew word for flattery
translates "smooth,"(hence the cau-
tion for a "smooth-talker") and gives
us warning when praise is too easy
to swallow. Wisdom and discern-
ment dictate that we learn to recog-
nize when praise is being "laid on a
little thick." We must also consider
the source. Ask yourself, "Would
this same person tell me the truth if
it were hard to hear?" If the answer
is yes, enjoy the compliment...if no,
beware of the net around your feet...
because your heart matters!
Blessings,
Angie

"...Because you deserve it!" How
many times does that message come
across through countless advertise-
ments and TV commercials...evgry
product and service promising some-
thing you cannot or at least should
not want to be without. I wonder
how often we have been convinced
to buy something that did not deliver
what iwas pronused...because we de-
According to Romans 16:17-
18, the Bible says that people who
are serving their own appetites use
"smooth talk and flattery to deceive
the minds of naIve people." Proverbs
29:5 also warns "whoever flatters his
neighbor is spreading a net for his
feet. It seems that a wise man will
be more guarded in the face of flat-
tery than an honest reprimand...at
least you know where you stand.
WilliamPennfounderofthePenn-
sylvania colony, was once quoted:
"Avoid flatterers, for they are thieves
in disguise." How about that--and he
didn't even have television! In rela-
tion to false advertisement, it is easy
to make the connection with flatterers
and thieves. In relationships, howev-
er, we might not always see the cor-
relation as clearly...
' By definition, flattery is "excessive
praise from motives of self-interest."
Thus it is the motives and not the
praise that is the problem. In healthy

health department. The program has
focused on emotional eating and atti-
tudes toward food, with an emphasis
on eating for the right reasons.
The Gilchrist County Health De-
partment is pleased to offer these
much needed services to the commu-
nity and encourages any resident in-
terested to contact the health depart-
ment for details. For scheduling you
may call 352-463-3120.


The Gilchrist County Health De-
partment is pleased to announce that
it is now offering nutritional counsel-
ing services with Registered Dieti-
cian, Mary Killian. These services are
available to all residents regardless of
income and offered as a component
of the LIP Grant Program which was
awarded to the Dixie and Gilchrist
County Health Departments.
Mary is available for appoint-


ments on Wednesday afternoons in
the health department. Her goal in
patient counseling is to help people
develop an understanding of the role
that food plays in overall health and
vitality. She emphasizes healthy
eating for energy, wellness and the
prevention and control of chronic
diseases.
Mary is excited to work again in
public health and education. She


started her career with the Women
Infant and Children's Food nutrition
program. She has been in private
practice for over 30 years in Gaines-
ville. She is glad to be a part of public
health and education again and looks
forward to meeting the people of
Gilchrist County.
In the past few months she has
been presenting a lunch and learn
program for the employees of the


non-use of seatbelts and motor ve-
hicle insurance requirements.
The Florida Highway Patrol has.
found these checkpoints to be an ef-
fective method of enforcing state
laws,.which relate to the safe and le-
gal operation of motor vehicles.

In an earlier article I said there were
questions to be answered beginning
with band camp such as the marching
challenge and the spirit stick winners.
The important question was "Who
would step it up in music and march-
ing to lead the Purple Powerhouse to
another superior year'?" In my nine
year association with the band, I have
never seen a better leadership group
than this year. I have not seen a band
with this much fire in their soul to
dedicate themselves to becoming the
best of the best. On Friday I got my
answer, the entire Purple Powerhouse
Band. If the preview on the final day
of camp was any indication, the band


is well on their way to a successful
season. Their continued hard work at
weekly pnictices and sectionals will
hold the key to the 2009 Purple Pow-
erhouse Band's legacy in the Bell
Band history.
Friday evening parents and fam-
ily members joined the band in a
cookout hosted by the boosters. Af.
ter dinner the band members took to
the field and demonstrated exercises
and drills they had worked on dur-
ing the past two weeks. Band Di-

based Vet Centers -- already in all 50
states -- are a key component of VA's
mental health program, providing
Veterans with mental health screen-
ing and post-traumatic stress disorder
(PTSD) counseling. The existing 232
centers conduct community outreach
to offer counseling on employment'
family issues and education to com-
bat Veterans and family members, as

on active duty and counseling for
Veterans who were sexually harassed
on active duty.
Vet Center services are earned
through service in a combat zone or
area of hostility and are provided at
no cost to Veterans or their families.
They are staffed by small multi-dis-
ciplinary teams, which may include
social workers, psychologists, psy-
chiatric nurses, master's-level coun-
selors and outreach specialists. Over
70% of Vet Center employees are
Veterans themselves, a majority of

whtom erved in combat zo T
in 1979 by Congress, recognizing
that many Vietnam Veterans were
still having readjustment problems.
In 2008, the Vet Center program pro-
vided over 1.1 million visits to over
167,000 Veterans, including over
53,000 visits by more than 14,500
Veteran families. More information
about Vet Centers can be found at
ivww.vetcenter.va.gov/index.asp..
Communities receiving the New
VA Vet Centers are: Florida-Marion,
Lake, Collier, Okaloosa and Bay
Counties.
VA NATIONAL PHARMACY
CALL CENTER: The U.S. Veterans
Affairs Department will open a na-
tional call center in Waco, Texas, to
help answer questions from veterans
and VA pharmacies. U.S. Rep. Chet
Edwards (D-TX-17) announced the
new project 12AUG during a visit by
VA Secretary Eric Shinseki to Waco's
VA hospital. The Waco Democrat
says the center in the hospital com-
plex is expected to employ 224 work-
ers. Edwards says the center will be
situated in a building in the Waco VA
complex that will undergo a $4.5 mil-
lion renovation, starting next month.

TAX BURDEN for FLORIDA
RETIREES: Many people planning
to retire use the presence or absence
of a state income tax as a litmus test
for a retirement destination. This is
a serious miscalculation since higher
sales and property taxes can more
than offset the lack of a state income
tax. The lack of a state income tax
doesn't necessarily ensure a low total
tax burden.
Following are the taxes you can
expect to pay if you retire in Florida:
State Sales Tax: 6% (food, pre-
scription and non-prescription drugs
exempt). There are additional county
sales taxes, which could make the
combined rate as high as 9.5%.
Fuel & Cigarette Tax: Gasoline
Tax: 34.5 cents/gallon. (Local taxes
for gasoline vary from 5.5 cents to 17
cents, plus there is a 2.07% gasoline

tufg 1 nx. In I sF aTa
taxes). Cigarette Tax: 33.9 cents/
pack of 2kO ($1.0010 surcharge added on
Personal Income Taxes: No state '
income tax.
Retirement Income: Not taxed.
Starting in 2007, individuals, married
couples, personal representatives of
estates, and businesses are no longer
required to file an annual intangible
personal property tax return report-
ing their stocks, bonds, mutual funds
moneymarket funds, shares of busi-'
ness trusts, and unsecured notes.
Proper 4 is taxable at 100%
of its just valuation. In certain coun-
ties and cities homeowners 65 and
over can receive a homestead exemp-
tion from property tax of $25,000 if
their household income, as defined
by the federal tax code, is at or below
$27,539 (single) or $30,917 (couples)
per year (2008 figures). The income
n ion soadlj ted ena h yeaPas


instances the definition of house-
hold income exchides Social Secu-
rity. Permanent residents may also
be entitled to a homestead exemp-
tion regardless of age. Residents 65
and older are entitled to both exemp-
tions (ssoooo). The senior citizen's
homestead exemption applies only to
tax millege levied by the county or
city, and does not apply to millege
of school districts or other taxing au-
thorities. The homestead exemption
for all residents applies to all property
taxes, not just city and county taxes.
Annual increases in the assessment
of homestead property are limited to

An all day training program was
held last Saturday at'the new Pub-

Three junk cars, one from an actual
car crash, were donated to the Fire
Department by Don Martin's Garage
and Salvage in Bell. Mr. Martin said
they were more than happy to donate
the cars if it means the training will
result in saving someone's life.
Firefighters and EMS personnel
viewed training films and then per-
formed a number of drills using the
tools. At the end of the training, an
actual simulated drill with a trapped
manikin was performed.
"I thought our personnel did a
good job and no one got hurt, always
a concern in drills," stated Chief Per-
ez. In the last few years we have had
some critical entrapment on S.R.

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAYAUGUST 2 9


By Janice Irwin, Lake City Com-
Inunity College coordinator disabled
student services
Starting college means looking at
school in a whole new way. All the
time you've spent in school so far has
meant having someone telling you
where to go, when to go there and
what to do. When you start college,
all of that changes. Wish I'd known
some of the following things:
You are responsible, no one else.
That means you need to know what
to do, where to go and when things
are due. To begin with, the college
lets everyone know when classes
will begin.and when to sign up for
classes. But signing up for classes is
not possible unless you've been ad-
mitted to the college. This is not a
15 minute process where you simply
fill in a form. It includes having all
the required information with you to
fill out the form, as well as having
your official high school transcript of
grades with you. There is also a $15
application fee you'll need to have
with you. If you don't know what
information is needed, you should be
calling the college admissions office
right now.-
Next, you'll take an assessment
test that shows where you stand with
reading, writing and math skills. If


you do not test at college level, you'll
need to register for and pass refresher
classes before you can begin your
college level work. Studying before
you take this assessment might save
you from having to take up to six pre-
college level courses, which could
mean a year or more worth of work
and expense,
Before you register for your class-
es it might be helpful to know your
major field of study. By making an
. appointment with the career coun-
seling center, you can find informa-
tion on different career fields, take
a self-administered interest survey
and decide"whether a major in fields
like graphic design or engineering is
more for you.
When classes start, you'll need
to have purchased your books and
be able to find your classroom and
building. Also, if you haven't gotten
your parking permit you'll get a tick-
et, which is not a good way to start.
Parking is sometimes tricky, so you'll
have to allow extra time to find a spot
and still get to your class on time.
The professors expect you to be on
time, to listen in class, to participate
in class discussion and to be prepared
every day. However, no one is go-
ing to. call you each day to remind
you. The professors hand out a syl-


labus the first day of class and you
are responsible for everything on that
syllabus until the class is done. That
means doing the reading assignments
before the class time when the mate-
rial will be discussed, preparing for
the tests by the date shown on the
syllabus, finishing assignments to
hand in when due and understanding
what work will account for your final
grade.
Excuses are worthless in college.
If there is something you don't un-
derstand you need to ask a question.
For class work, ask yotir professor,
not another student. That way you
know you have the right answer, not
just an answer. The student might be
wrong. And no matter what is going
on in your life, you are responsible
for meeting your class obligations. If
your car isn't running, better set up
a ride with another student, friend or
family member. If you didn't sleep
last night, you still need to be pre-
pared and come to class.
If you aren't prepared for a test
because you didn't understand some-
thing, you should have asked earlier,
preferably when it was discussed in
class so everyone else could under-
stand too. If you don't understand
an assignment, ask your instruc-


tor before it's due. You can call to
make an appointment to ineet with
your instructor or by e-mail using the
professor's last name, first initial @
lakecitycc.edu. Professors are there
to answer questions, but not to extend
favors.
Student orientation, which is when
campus services apd activities are
explained, is one thing that really
helps students stay on track. Also,
pick up and read the student hand-
book. This explains campus rules for
which you'll be held accountable. It
also contains a calendar which every
student should use to keep track of
due dates for assignments and tests.
This should be carried with you at all
times.
Most importantly, remember, you
are now responsible for your edu-
cation and your actions. You're an
adult now. Be sure to do all you can
to be the best you can be!
Contact Irwin at irwinj@lakec-
itycc.edu or by calling (386) 754-
4215.
You may view the online schedule
of classes at www.1akecitycc.edu or
call (386) 754-4396 for more infor-
mation.


.A witt
By Betty Brooke Cavanah
This is a story about four people:
Everybody, Somebody, Anybody,
and Nobody. There was an impor-
tant job to be done and Everybody
was asked to do it. Everybody was
sure that Somebody would do it.
Anybody could have done it but
Nobody did it. Somebody got angry
about that because it was Every-
body's job. Everybody thought Any-
body could do it but Nobody real-
ized that Everybody wouldn't do it.
It ended up that Everybody blamed
Somebody when Nobody did what
Anybody could have done!
Living alone I am now Every-
body, Somebody, Anybody, and
truly the Nobody. Now all the im-
portant jobs get done by Nobody,

to cross wherever they could. find a

"They would cross behind cars,"
Deen explained. "There was a lot of
potential for an accident to occur."
Gilchrist County School Superin-
tendent Don Thomas met with David
Spencer, director of operations, and
the two determined that a change was


in order.
Under the direction of Spencer,
work crews from Lancaster Correc-
tional Institute worked on the new
sidewalks and crosswalks during the
summer.
The project was completed last
week, just in time for the 2009-10
school year.
