Fanning Springs


councilman honored


for 40 years of service


By Carrie A. Mizell
Richard Nixon was sworn in as
the 37th president of the United
States and the Beatles gave their
final public performance the same
year Jim White was sworn in 'as
a Fanning Springs City Council
member.
A celebration was held last Tues-
'day to honor White for his 40-year
tenure on the city council. Eleven
days .shy of his 80th birthday,
White has decided not to seek re-
election when his. term expires in
December 2010.
"You know when you stay there
as long as I have, you get to think-
ing people don't care," White said.
"But then when they do something
like they did the other night... well,
it just makes you wish you could
do another 40 years. But knowing
you can't."
During the celebration White
was presented with plaques from
the Florida League of Cities, the
City of Fanning Springs, and a
plaque with a letter written to him
by Florida Governor Charlie Crist.
In the letter, Crist congratulated
'White for his 40 years of service,
saying "Your hard work and dedi-
pation to advocate on behalf of the
citizens of Fanning Springs is in.-
spiring, as you have been an active
voice for your local fire department
and many community projects over
the years."
During his tenure on the city
council, which officially started in
October 1968, White has been very
involved with the city's fire depart-
ment, which was started when some
10 members of the community, in-
cluding White, donated $100 each.
"The forestry department donat-
ed an old Dodge truck, which was
a lot," White recalls. "We didn't
have much of a fire department
back then. Ronnie McQueen,.has
come along since and done a super
job with the fire department."
The Fanning Springs fire depart-
ment is number one in the tri-county
area, and if you don't believe it just
ask this proud city councilman.
"I might be just a little preju-
diced," White said with a laugh.
According to city officials, White
has also worked tirelessly over the
years to see that roads are paved


Jim White
Fanning Springs councilman
throughout the city.
After becoming a council mem-
ber in 1969, White went on to be-
come vice chair for the first time
in 1971 and later chairman of the
council for the first time in 1972.
"The town was wounded in 1965
.and there were no taxes for the
first 20 years," White said. "Folks
were promised that they wouldn't
have taxes and they didn't until the
federal government said we had to
have a tax base, but it started out at
no more than 1 mill." '
When White joined the city coun-
cil, he said-the ciry's annual budget
was $7,000 compared to today's
budget, which is over $1 million.
"Money wise we've done a good
job, but not with growth," White
said.
Lujan Barden, water clerk for
the city of Fanning Springs, said
that White has given endless hours
to the city during his 40 years of.
service.
Prior to hearing that White would
not be seeking re-election, Barden
said, "We're not sure if he is plan-
ning to'seek re-election, but we're
all hoping he will run again."
White explained that he has had
some health problems in. recent
years, including a quadruple by-
pass, which led him to make the
decision to not seek re-election.
"My thinking isn't as fast and my
patience ain't as good," White said.
"If I was still up to par I would love
to make another 40 years!"

The body of a 58-year-old Ala-
chua man was pulled from a Ginnie
Springs cave system.known as Dev-
il's Eye last Friday after he appar-
ently drowned while diving.
Bruce Clark Bosshardt was a scuba
'diving instructor who launched Cave.
Dive Central, a north central Florida
business dedicated to open water,
cave diving and technical diving.
According to the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, Bosshardt did not
surface from a dive he was taking

with his dive partner Gary Hildman
. after the two got separated.
Hildman told GCSO investigators
Tracy Taylor and Eddie Merritt that
once he lost track of his partner, he
surfaced hoping Bosshardt might
have already surfaced, but when he
did not find the man waiting just
above the water surface he reported
Bosshardt missing just before 1 p.m.
Experienced cave divers from Gin-
nie Springs responded to the area
and located Bosshardt's body at 4:26
p.m. in an area of Devil's Eye called
Henry's Crack.
The incident is still under investi-
gation by the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office.
According to Maj. Tony Smith of
GCSO, the results on an autopsy,
which was performed over the week-
end, will not be released until the
Medical Examiner's Office has the
results of pending toxicology tests.


5 hurt in fiery crash near Waccasassa

and SE 70th Avenue pulled the drivers and passengers homi both ;e-


By Carrie A. Mizell
A laige plume of smoke was vis-
ible for miles on SaturdaN afternoon
after an RV and a truck collided at the
intersection of State Road 26 and SE
70th A\enue. injuring five people.
According to n Flonda Higha-s
Patrol ie'ponCf an old RV djiv-en b'
Justin D. Sheal), 18, of Tienton, 'i as
traveling northbound on SE 70th Av-
enue just before 2 p.m. Shealy report-
edly stopped the RV at the stop sign
and after a short time pulled the RV
onto State Road 26 and into the path
of an oncoming vehicle.
Wesley Stephens, 20, of Alachua,
was a passenger in the RV at the
time.
A westbound Chevrolet pickup
truck driven by David H. Rhodes, 35,
of Cross City, struck the right side of
the RV, which violated the right of
way.
Rhodes had two passengers in
his truck, one of whom was Nancy
Rhodes, 37, also of Cross City.
After the initial collision tlhe ve-
hicles traveled to the northeast corner
of the intersection where both finally
came to a stop.
The RV, which was struck in the
fuel tank, spilled fuel onto the road,
which ignited into flames. The fire
quickly spread to both vehicles.
Trooper Gikas of the Florida High-
way Patrol credited bystanders at a
flea market set up on the northeast
corner of the Waccasassa intersection
with pulling the occupants of both
vehicles out of the vehicles before


Gilchrist County firefighter Everett Heaton works to put out flames.


Firefighters and EMS from throughout the county responded to the scene of the accident on Saturday
afternoon, which not only destroyed both vehicles, but also damaged the caution light at the dangerous
intersection.


Portrait of an Educator: Mrs. Polly Sauls of Bell


By Ashley Jones
For the past eight years, Bell El-
ementary School has been blessed
with the helpful hands of Mrs. Pol-
ly Sauls. I went to speak with Mrs.
Polly this week to ask her about her
life, her career and what drives her to
volunteer everyday at the school.
Mrs. Polly grew up in Bell and was
the oldest of 12 children. She gradu-
ated from Bell High School and then
from Berry College in Rome, Geor-
gia. Mrs. Polly also did a fellowship
for a year through the International
Rotary at the University of Capetown
in South Africa. The teachers who in-
spired this future educator the most
were Mr. John Dew, Mrs. Louise
Coleman, and Mrs. Iris Roberts.
Mrs. Polly taught for 36 years in all
grades from kindergarten to college
courses. She taught at Trenton and


Gilchrist Cattlemen's Association

to hold annual meeting
Business meeting will follow dinner and a short program


Jim Jones, President of the Gil-
christ Cattlemen's Association, in-
vites all cattlemen members and
those interested in the cattle industry
to the annual meeting. It will be held
at the Trenton Elementary Cafeteria,
September 14 at 7 p.m.


A meal and program will be pro-
vided. Wives are asked to bring a
dessert.
Membership dues of $55 will be
due at this meeting for the 2010 year.
A short business meeting will also be
conducted.


Bell Elementary Schools and the John
Morse School in Gilchrist County as
well as in Cross City, Jacksonville,
Tallahassee, Savannah, Georgia and
Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The best part of teaching, she says,
was "Getting to know the students
and watching them mature and get
excited about learning; teaching them
long division and seeing the 'AHA!'
moment and all of the sudden they
get it."
It is plain to see this love of teach-
ing is still evident in this veteran in-
structor. In fact, during our interview
she was busy working on a project for
another teacher at the school. That is
just one of her many daily tasks at
the elementary. She also works with
students in small groups and tutoring
throughout the day. This begins at
6:30 a.m. when she arrives at school
and doesn't end until well after the
students have gone home. In addi-
tion to this, Mrs. Polly serves on the
School Improvement Team for both
Bell Elementary and Middle/High
Schools.
I asked Mrs. Polly what motivates
her to volunteer so much of her time
everyday. Her reply, "Having taught
for 36 years I know what kind of help
teachers can use. I try to help them as
much as I can. I like helping the kids,
too."'
The most important things to in-
still in students, Mrs. Polly says. are


Polly Sauls
"Honesty and caring for one anoth-
er... and they don't test for that."
Michelle Smith, former principal
of Bell Elementary says this of Mrs.
Polly, "What would Bell Elementary
be without her? It would not be com-
plete. She is part of the heartbeat of
the school. She is loved, respected,
and admired by all."
This is a sentiment echoed around
the campus at the Elementary, and
rightly so. You see, Mrs. Polly taught
many of the teachers at the school
when they were children. Sherry
Lindsey, interim principal at the
school says "Mrs. Polly has been an
inspiration to me beginning in 5th
grade when she was my teacher. She


continues to inspire everyone around
her with her love and dedication to
the school system."
No doubt about it, Mrs. Polly is
a bedrock in the educational foun-
dation at Bell Elementary. She is a
jewel of the community who contin-
ues to reach a new generation of Bell
students through the gifts of her time,
knowledge and heart.

35-0
By John M. Ayers
TheBellBulldogsopenedtheir2009
regular season with a 35-0 grounding
of host Gainesville Oak Hall Friday
night.
The Dogs
had their way
in the Eagles
nest as they
rushed for
over 300 yards
scoring at will
in the second,
third and fourth periods.
In the second period Bell's Brad-
ley Denham led the offense from his
running back position on a 44-yard
run for a touchdown with 10:31 re-
maining in the half. Garth Frier kept
the momentum rolling as he added
the extra point kick for a 7-0 lead.
Denton Rowicki broke the Eagles
defense as he rushed 33 yards for a
second Bulldogs' touchdown with
5:31 remaining in the second period.
Frier again added the extra point kick
to give the visitors a 14-0 edge. With
just minutes remaining in the first
half; sophomore Jeremy Zimmerman
got into the excitement of scoring as
he completed a Bell offensive drive
with a 5-yard run into the end zone
for the score. Denham, the junior
running back, gave Bell a 21-0 edge
when he slipped into the end zone for
a 2-poirit conversion.
In the third period the Bulldogs
picked up where they'had left off as
Denham broke through the Eagles'
defense on a 55-yard touchdown run
with 9:28 remaining in the period.
Frier added the extra point kick as
Bell took a 28-0 lead. Zimmerman
completed the Bulldogs' scoring as
he ran 5 yards for a touchdown with
9:31 remaining in the fourth period.
Bell's quarterback Daniel Heck
rushed for 43 yards on 7 carriers.
He completed 2 of 6 passes for 32
yards.
, The Bulldogs' defense set the stage
as they picked off the Eagles quarter-
back 2 times in this game and sacked
him on 3 other occasions as they kept
Oak Hall scoreless in their season
opener. Trey Roux and Chris Wilk-
erson had 5 total tackles each, and
Garth Frier had 4 total tackles in this
game.
I Bell will take a week off on Sep-
tember 11 as they prepare to travel

By John M. Ayers
The' Trenton Tigers proved their
edge over the Bronson Eagles as they
scored 14 points in the final period to
take a 27-13 win on the road.
"I was very proud of our young
guys; our defense played well and
our offense came through in the end
to put this game away," explained
Trenton Coach Chris Baker.
Trenton's Brandon Stone got the
Tigers on track when he completed
an offensive drive with a 7-yard
touchdown run. '
Bronson's Eric Oliver picked up a
Tiger fumble and returned it 40 yards
for a touchdown in the closing min-
utes of the first period.
Trenton's Caleb Smith connected
with Corbyn Pugh on a 28-yard pass
that the junior running back took into
the end zone for a touchdown. Ced-
ric Stokes kicked the extra point for a
13-6 Trenton lead.
In the third period Bronson erased
the Tigers lead when Powers con-
nected with Barber on a 10-yard
touchdown pass to tie the score at 13
all.
The fourth quarter was all Trenton
as T.J. Kircher gave the visitors their
ifial lead when he dashed into the
end zone on a 2-yard touchdown run.
Stokes picked up a 2-point conver-
sion for a 20-13 lead. 'Stone capped
off the Tigers' scoring when he broke
loose for a 20-yard touchdown run in
the closing minutes of the game.
Trenton's Caleb Smith completed 2


or 3 passes for 30 yards with 1 touch-
down and 1 interception. Brandon
Stone led the Tiger rushing attack
with 18 carries for 148 yards. Cedric
Stokes also picked up 763 yards for
the Tigers on 15 carries. The Tigers'
Jonathan Smith led the defense with
8 tackles, and teammate TJ Kircher
had 1 sack from his linebacker post.,
The Tigers will open a 2-game
home' stand Friday night as they host
Branford. The Bucs come into this
game as an independent with a 42-7
victory over St. Francis Friday night
* in Gainesville.
"We expect Friday night to be a
tough game, Coach Baker explained.
Branford operates from a single wing


offense that will be different and of
course Coach Bill Wiles' teams are
always tough," Baker added.
This game will kickoff at 7:30 p.m.
in Tiger stadium. G

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


. I received this editorial on Labor
:Day and I thought 'it was worth pass-
ing on. I hope you enjoy it as much
as I did.
On this Labor Day
By: Robert Wilson
Ironically, work is probably the
"last thing the American people want
to think about on Labor Day. They'd
'much rather devote their time and
.energy to the backyard barbecue, the
last beach trip of 2009, or, perhaps
a pickup football game in the. local
school yard.
As well they should.
But now might be the best time for
;all of us across the fruited plains to
;remind ourselves anew of just why "a
'fair day's pay for a good day's work"
'is so important for our future and our
past - and how it's being undermined
at the highest levels of government.
Work,.quite simply, is the ability to
,get up and make a life for yourself.
'As an American, you have the right
to work for yourself and for the ones
you love. And.no, one else has the
fight to "wring their bread from the
sweat of your brow."
It was that fierce individualism,
the "can-do" pull-yourself-up-by-
your-own-bootstraps attitude that
built America out of. nothing and
catapulted the nation and its citizens
to a level of wellbeing never before
thought possible.
As American history has proven
time anid again, to build a,prosper-
ous and fruitful life, all one needs is
a healthy dose of self-motivation and
a free nation in which to exercise that
motivation.
The current administration, how-
ever, begs to differ. 'In their .eyes,
nothing . can-or should-happen
without government's consent or
even ordination. This is, perhaps,
most evident when they speak about.
their ostensible solution of the reces-
sion and unemployment.
They believe government alone
can create jobs out of thin air-like
a magician pulling a. rabbit out of
.its hat. But the truth is: government
doesn't "create jobs." And it never
will. Small business owners create.
jobs. Large business owners create
jobs. Individuals create their own
jobs. Government simply "makes
work."
Moreover, as Americans for Lim-
ited Government Chairman Howard
Rich points out in a. recent column,.


there is a shocking disconnect be-
tween public sector pay and private
sector pay in the United States. As he
says:
"According to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics' recently published study for
2007, in California, which is still try-
ing to climb out of its oppressive $26
billion deficit, average annual income
for state employees was $56,777 ver-
sus $49,935 for the private sector, a
14 percent gap. In Illinois, a simi-
lar story emerges: $53,925 for state
workers, and $48,006 for the private.
sector, an 11' percent split. New Jer-
sey: $57,845 average state salary,
$53,590 for private sector workers, at
an 8 percent difference...
"Nationally, the story is even worse.
Federal workers made on average
$64,871 in 2007, with private sector
workers making a meager $44,362,
so public sector wages in the federal
system are 46 percent higher."
Something is amiss when those in
government (individuals who pro-
duce nothing more than rules, regula-
tion, red tape, and higher taxes) are
"rewarded" more than those in pri-
vate enterprise who truly produce the
wealth of the nation. It is a sign of the
times-and the leadership.
So on this Labor Day, take a min-
ute to remember what makes America
unique-and, yes, exceptional. It is
the hard worker, not the bureaucrat.
It is the taxpayer, not the tax-collec-
tor. Andit is the people, not the gov-
ernmerit.
It has never been government. It
has never been bureaucracy. And it
has not been the halls of America's
Congress but rather the shelves of
America's stores, the fields of Ameri-
ca's farms, and the students of Amer-
ica's schools that have made America
great.
As summer comes to a close, Amer-
ica's workers-men, women, the old,
and young-ought to pat themselves
on the back and appreciate the fact
that they are the backbone of this
strong-and still magnificent-na-
tion. May their numbers multiply..

I'm picking up where I left off last
week with our adventures in Mon-
tana.
Beth (my old high school friend
and quilting buddy) and I arrived at
the Nine Quarter Circle Ranch late
Sunday evening just in time for sup-
per. The ranch is made of small in-
dividual log cabins for. the guests,
several barns, and a really nice lodge
which is located up above the cabins
which sat on the canyon or valley
floor. The lodge is my favorite; it is
two very large rooms with two enor-
mous wood burning fireplaces, and it
has a kitchen and living quarters in
the back. This lodge just speaks to
me with is rustic log walls and mas-
sive stone fireplaces complete with a,
crackling fire and the homey smell of
wood smoke.
Yes, we did have fires every morn-
ing. If we were lucky, we got to sit at
the table next to one of the fireplaces
which warmed our back throughout
breakfast. Every morning we pulled
on jackets as it was pretty chilly. One
morning it was 30 and another it was
32 with frost on the ground. I have
to say the cool weather at the ranch
felt pretty'good after yet another hot
Florida summer. The elevation of the'
ranch is 7,000 feet, and it took us sev-
eral days to get acclimated to their
thin air. What we didn't miss was the
humidity.
We quilted each morning with two
very good teachers, Georgia Bon-
esteel and Charlotte Warr Anderson..
In the afternoon we rode horses up
into the mountains which surround
the ranch. We road up into the Galla-
tin National Forest, which was estab-
lished in 1899. The Gallatin is part of
the greater Yellowstone area, which,
is the largest intact ecosystem in the
continental United States. This 1.8-
million acre forest spans six moun-
tain ranges.
I was amazed at the -number of
wildflowers still bloonmi'gif ithe-hitglh
mountain meadows. We saw purple
lupine, little blue bells, yellow flow-
ers that reminded me of buttercups,
white yarrow and wild Queen Ann's
lace as well as patches of bright red
Indian paint brushes in full bloom.
These meadows were also filled with
rich green grasses which had large,
seed heads. My horse. Revalli, could
not resist snatching a mouthful of
grass here and there as she waded
through the belly deep. grass.
Our horses came from the ranch's
fixed herd which Ponsists of 125
Appaloosa horses. These compact
horses, which were bred as mountain
horses, handled the sometimes steep
and rocky terrain like it was nothing.
I just can't begin to describe how
beautiful the views were as we twist-
ed and turned ever upward.
Staying at the Nine Quarter Circle
Ranch.which is a dude ranch is such
a breeze. Once you arrive they take
care of you every single day. All
the meals, fresh baked daily snacks,
guided horse rides, as well as fly fish-
ing in the Gallatin River which runs
though the'valley, are all paid for with
one fee, kind.of like a cruise.
One day while on our three-hour
trail ride, we saw two moose and four
big deer, three bucks and one I'm not
sure of because all I saw was that
white flag as he or she left.
The ranch owner Kelly Kelsey said
that Montana had a late spring and
late summer this year and that is why
everything wvas still so green and why
the wildflowers were so abundant.
We left the ranch on Saturday
morning heading back to Jackson,
Wyoming so we could fly out Sunday
morning. After running into some
road construction in Yellowstone on
our trip to the ranch, we decided to


take a detour. For the first time ever I
got to see the other side of the Grand
Tetons. We drove due south from
Gallatin Gateway into Idaho bypass-
ing the parks altogether. I have to tell
you, being a "farmer's daughter," I
really enjoyed seeing all the farms.
The East side of the Tetons may be
all in a national park but on the West
side those good ol' boys in Idaho are
farming rightup to the very edge of
them. We ate lunch at a soda fountain
inAshton, Idaho, which is known as a
seed potato producing area. I finished
off lunch by ordering a huckleberry
milkshake, and that thick shake was
some kind of fine.
The street next to the railroad in
Ashton was lined with grain bins
which were receiving load after load
of wheat which was being harvested.
Next we headed on south toward
Driggs, Idaho. The road turned at
some point, and for five miles or so
the entire Grand Teton Range was the
backdrop for acre after acre of green
potato fields and golden wheat fields.
It reminded me of a green and gold
patchwork quilt.-Wow, it was sure a
sight to behold. We stopped and took
some pictures, but sometimes photos
just don't record the true grandeur of
a landscape. Shortly after shopping
in a nice little quilt shop in Driggs,
we headed on 'south ,and held onto
our seats as.we came across the 8,431
foot elevation of the Teton Pass into
Jackson Hole.
We got home late Sunday evening
so I had to wait until Monday to see
my children and grandchildren. Allie
and Gus had grown like weeds while
I was gone. I had a real good time
on our trip, but my goodness I was
sure glad to see those babies when I'
got home..

Carrie will try any recipe. She is
fearless when it comes to trying out
new dishes. Last week she made this
really'good Biscotti, Biscotti is sort
of a real dry hard cookie that you. eat
with coffee. Adam, my son-in-law,
loves strong coffee and Biscotti so
Carrie made this recipe. I was lucky
enough to receive a bag of them also.
I ended up dunking mine in my cof-
fee and oh my they were good.



2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups finely chopped Almonds
1 cup mini semisweet chocolate

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


C


Heart Matetr;


"If I don't trust someone, does that
mean I don't love them?"
According to 1 Corinthians 13:7,
the Bible tells us that perfect love,
translated "agape" always trusts.'
Problem.. .human love is not perfect.
Because trust must be present forlove
to flourish, it is understandable to
donfuse the two in our relationships
with other people. The reality is that
you can love someone deeply and not
trust him or her at the very same time.
Love is a free gift that you can give
someone. even if they don't deserve
it. Trust, however, must be earned...
and because we are human, it often
gets damaged. Broken trust must al-
ways be healed for a relationship to
survive.
Authors and Christian psycholo-
gists Cloud and Townsend explain,
"Trust is the ability to be totally real,
authentic,' and unguarded with (an-
other). It means being able to bring
all parts of yourself, good and bad,
strong and weak, without fear or con-
demnation or judgment." This is a
: deep. level of relationship to attain,
and most of us are painfully aware
that taking the risk to trust someone.
at some point in our life has cost us
Plenty. This causes us to raise our.
guard and keep it high so that we
don't risk experiencing that kind of
pain again. In fact, that is usually our
first response when trust takes a hit:
we promise ourselves we will not
ever let that happen again...
Trust can be broken in many ways:
saying one thing and doing another.
white lies, financial betrayal, broken
promises, unfulfilled commitments,
sexual. unfaithfulness at any level,
and being inconsistent as a person.
When we cannot trust someone, we"
no longer know who they are ..we
lose the ability to depend on them to.
be there for us, whether in one area or
many. Even worse, when the betrayal
comes from someone close, from one
we have exposed private knowledge
of ourselves to, that betrayal causes
Sdep wounds.
It is most important to understand


that trust issues cannot be ignored
for the sake of "keeping peace."
Rebuilding trust is hard work and. it
means taking a risk, but if both sides
are willing, it is worth the effort.
Here are a few steps to help repair
the damage:
Face the reality about what caused
the broken trust. If you are the source
of the problem, admit your fault.
You cannot heal or repair that which
is kept hidden or denied. If you have
been betrayed, admit your feelings to
the other person. Confirm your love
for them, but express your need for
this to be addressed.
Take a broken trust seriously. Try-
ing to brush, it off as unimportant
only serves to deepen the wound... a
person with' a broken trust cannot be
convinced it is no big deal any more
that one with a broken neck.
Let the one you love know how
much you regret what you did. In the
healing process the one who was be-
trayed will need to be reassured of the
other person's commitment to them.
Give that reassurance, not defensive
retaliation ("How many times are you
going to bring that up?"). Especially
in marriage, the "offender" may need
to make himself or herself account-
able to the other person in oider to
rebuild that which has been broken.
Give. the process time...as you
take. action to change. The Bible
says, in Luke 17:3, "If your brother
(husband, friend, etc) sins, rebuke
(confront) him. and if he xepents, for-
give him." The word "repents" here
means to take action to change.. .not
simply saying I'm sorry and expect-,
ing the other person to move on as if'
nothing happened.
Trust is a vital element in our re-
lationslhips...when it is broken, it's
as if the foundation of your.home is
cracked...it' must be repaired, or it
will no longer be a desirable place to-
live. The relationships in your life are
worth doing the hard work to build'
and rebuild trust.. .they are deeply at-
tached to our hearts.. .and our hearts
really do matter! ,
Blessings, Angie

out for a community outreach day
Ath music,' food and fellowship.

Bethel Baptist Free Yard
Sale
Need. With the economy we find
ourselves in, it is easier to distinguish
between our wants and our needs.
There are several local churches that
are working toward addressing these
needs. , .
Bethel Baptist Church, 7070 SW
CR 334A, six miles west of Treinton
(and one mile off of Highway 26 is
one such church. On September 26;
at 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. this church will
be offering a free yard sale as such'.


This is not a new idea: it is borrowed
from a sister church. Mt. Nebo Bap-
tist Church.
The idea is a simple one; dona-,
tions from church members, family
and friends will be made available
; to families with needs. Anyone is'
welcome but the idea for this one,
this time of year, is for families with
school-age children. "Our goal is for
every child to have at least the basics
for back, to school," said a church
representative. "We hope each fam-
ily we help will find a small burden
has been lifted in knowing their child
or children will have paper, pencils,
and something warm to wear when
-they attend school." The church
would like this to become an annual
event. They are looking forward to
this first one as a learning experience
and a way to reach out to families in
the community.

The Bell Varsity Basketball Team
attended three camps this summer;
Valdosta State University, FSU and
Florida Tech (Melbourne). The boys
had the opportunity to hone their
skills against teams fropm Georgia,
Alabama and all over the state of
Florida. The team also mixed some
fun in-between their hard work by
going to Wild Adventures after the
,Valdosta camp and spending the af-
ternoon at Cocoa Beach awaiting the
view of a Space Shuttle Launch after
the Florida Tech camp. The high-
light of the summer occurred during
the end-of-camp tournament at FSU
when the Bulldogs earned second
place by defeating teams such as
Florida High School.. All in all, the


camps were a great experience, es-
pecially for those seniors who have
played for Coach Mehl all through
their high school careers. We'd like
to thank all of the parents and school
personnel; without your support and
time these camps would not be pos-
sible.

"Have I told you lately that I love you?"
How I miss those beautiful words you told me again
, and again.

You never truly appreciate what you have until it's
gone. Though I can't hold you anymore I can hold
tight to the memories of the greatest man I ever knew.
Someone who was not afraid to show love. Who
thought nothing, was impossible. Whose enigmatic
personality and-infectious smile could light up a dark
cloud Ifyou metDick, you never forgot him.
We will neverforget you or your accomplishments
and the world you created.

In loving memory of my husband.

Until we meet again,

Owner/Instructor Tim Walker.


American Kenpo Karate Univer-
sity located in downtown Branford,
FL has recently had several students
earn the rank of Brown Belt. Owner
and head instructor Tim Walker is
very proud of these young individu-
als. Walker says that "in the martial'
arts regardless of what style martial
art or what country you are in, every-
one knows that a student wearing a
brown belt is closing in on earning


the coveted rank of Black Belt."
These students of American Kenpo
Karate University, the oldest profes-
sional martial arts school in Suwan-
nee County, represent kids and teens
that have an "I won't quit" attitude.
Mr. Walker tells his students that the
only difference between a Black Belt
and a white belt [the rank of all be-
ginning students] is that the person
earning a Black Belt did not quit!

Suwannee

River Fair

meeting will

be Sept. 15

The Board of Directors of the Su-
wannee River Fair is beginning prep-
arations for the 2010 fair.
This is the time of year when man-
datory meetings are usually held for
all fair participants. This year, the
board has chosen to replace those
meetings with a meeting for all FFA
Advisors and 4H Leaders. The meet-
ing will be held on Tuesday, Sep-
tember 15, 2009 at 7:00 pm in the
side room at Bubba Q's restaurant in
Chiefland.
The purpose of this meeting is to
take the time to carefully review the
fair rules and entry forms so that you
can disseminate the information to
your respective clubs. The board and
superintendents will be there to an-
swer your questions and address your
concerns. In turn, you will be able to
answer any questions that your mem-
bers have about the fair.
Another purpose of the meeting
is to obtain a count of the number
of fair participants expected for the
2010 fair.
The board is attempting to keep the
cost of printing as low as possible and
is asking you to contact your mem-
bers and get an estimate of the num-
ber of participants in the fair prior to
this meeting. It is understood that
this number will be an estimate and
if you need additional materials, they
will be made available. Please keep
in mind when arriving at this number
that, for the most part, one rule book
will be sufficient per family.
A few important dates are listed
below and I will send you a 2010 fair
schedule within the next few days.
Thank you for you assistance with
this process. The board looks for-
ward to seeing you at the meeting on
September 15.
Thank you,

rectors

By Carrie A. Mizell
Monday through Friday they work
as tellers at Captial City Bank in
Trenton, but later this month the two
outdoorswomen will pull on camou-
flage and pick up weapons as hunting
season unfolds.
Heather Boyd and Brittany Huff-
man didn't really know each other
before they started working together.
After talking they discovered that they
attended the same elementary school
and knew a lot of the same people,
despite the fact that Heather was born
and raised in Lacrosse and Brittany
grew up in Gilchrist County.
Not long after their initial conver-
sation did the two determine they
also shared a love of the outdoors.
Heather grew up primarily fishing
and Brittany grew up hunting.
Heather was raised on a cattle and
vegetable farm where she enjoyed
deer, dove and turkey hunting with
the men in her family. She also en-
joys fishing with her grandfather on
his airboat in Suwannee. However,
Brittany's parents favored hog hunt-
ing with dogs. Though she-spent her
teen years spending time with friends
and hanging out at the mall, she says
she regained her love for the outdoors
shortly after high school.
A bond was formed when the two
southern girls began turkey hunting
together in the spring. It didn't take
Brittany and Heather long to come
up with Game Gurls, a partnership
dedicated to their love of being in
the woods or on the water. They have
developed a website where they will
show films of their hunting and fish-
ing adventures, which will. include
saltwater and freshwater fishing,
along with quail, gator, deer,, dove,
hog and turkey hunts.
"Brittany has always dreamed of
being a guide on television," Heather
said. "She's been hunting since she
was a baby. Her parents took her out
with them in a pack."
Not only do the two kill their own


Game Gurls Brittany Huffman and Heather Boyd are anxiously
awaiting the start of bow season later this month.


game, they also hang their own tree
stands, put out their own feeders, call
their own game, clean and cook their
own meat.
"Our husbands love it!" Heather
said. "Brittany had all the venison
and hog she had killed at her wedding
reception."
For now the two are anticipating


the start of bow season, which opens
Sept. 26 along with a late-September
alligator hunting trip.
"We are currently looking for
sponsors and would greatly appreci-
ate any and all tips and advice," Brit-
tany said.
For more information on Game
Gurls visit: www.gamegurls.com


Fall gardening help meeting to be Friday


Do you have questions relating to
planting a fall garden?
The Friends of the Luther Callaway
Library in Chiefland, with the help of
the Nature Coast Master Gardeners
will be sponsoring a Fall Gardening
help meeting on September 11, 2009
at 11:00 a.m. at the library building.
Earl R. Ogle will present a talk on
Fall Vegetable Gardening, and Lynn
DiTullio will be on hand to identify
plants you might want to bring.


There will be lots of handouts from
IFAS on fall planting and the best va-
rieties to plant in our area.
Refreshments will be served.
The meeting will be about one to
two hours.
