Health Department reports
increase in local flu activity
The Gilchrist County Health De-
partment is no longer collecting or
reporting numbers on H1NI cases in
the county, instead officials are focus-
ing on the higher than usual amount
of flu activity in the county.
"We are seeing more flu than nor-
mal for this time of year, and it seems
to be affecting the younger school
age children more than the older
ones," said Dr. Eleanor Abella, medi-
cal director for the Gilchrist County
Health Department. "We are not cur-
rently aware of any widespread out-
Sable Boiling, Gilchrist County
Health Department administrator, in-
dicated that most illness in the com-
munity seems to be mild at this time.
According to Boiling, local health of-
ficials are seeing no more than what
is being experienced statewide and
throughout the southeast.
Since 80 to 90 percent of people
with flu like symptoms that are tested
at this time are positive for H1N1, the
CDC is no longer recommending that
all these individuals be tested, Bol-
"They are treated in the same man-
ner as individuals with regular sea-
sonal flu," Boiling said. "There are
probably many cases that are not
reported because not all individuals
seek medRal attention, and get better
on their own."
Health Department officials con-
tinue to encourage active hand wash-
ing and good hygiene practices.
"We encourage individuals who
are sick to stay home from work or
school," Bolling said. "Individuals
should stay home until they are fever
free for 24 hours."
Locally, the health department
continues its outreach to community
partners such as the Gilchrist County,
School.Board, school personnel, Gil-
christ County Commission, and area
"We are also continuing our active
planning for the implementation of
the Swine Flu Vaccine which should
be available in mid-October," Bolling
said. "The vaccine will be voluntary
and free to the public if administered
by the health department."
Currently, health department of-
ficials plan to offer the vaccine on
Saturday in the school gymnasiums.
Boiling indicated that dates will be
determined when officials know they
will get shipments in.
"It will be a targeted approach with
tiers of individuals to receive the vac-
cine," Boiling said. "Most likely our
first responders and health care pro-
viders will receive the first doses, fol-
lowed by pregnant women and chil-
dren. Individuals born before 1957
may have some immunity to this
strain of flu and therefore are not in
the top tier to receive the vaccine."
According to Boiling, health de-
partment officials will continue their
targeted outreach to the schools, day-
cares, and parents of young children,
so that they will be kept informed of
the schedule for possible vaccina-

is located on County Road 337 south-
east of Trenton in what many people
know as the Willey Watson home-

who presented the top award of the
evening, Phillip and Susan have a
herd of 300 momma cows.
"Phillip grew up in the flatwoods
on a vegetable and row crop farm,"
Weaver said. "Over the years he con-

He started with mixed breeds and for
the past 11 years has crossed with

have their own farm in addition to
renting land for their cattle.
"Phillip told me cattle has its ups

The citizens and businesses of
Trenton will see a garbage rate in-
crease as early as October if Ordi-
nance 2009-44 passes its final read-
ing at the September 28 Trenton City
Commission meeting. The ordinance
was approved at the first reading on
Monday, September 14.
Waste Pro who provides the gar-
bage pick up service in the City of
Trenton recently requested a raise
in the rates charged to the City for
garbage pick-up. The City Commis-
sioners recently agreed to the rate
increase in their new contract with
Waste Pro. Over the next several
years Waste Pro's rates will increase
a small amount each year. The city
pays Waste Pro for the service and
then increases the price an additional
amount for their customers.
At this time residential and church-
es hand collection pick-up, two times
a week for 96 gallon cans is 15.18
(this includes a $1.50 rental fee) if the
new rates are approved at the 28th of
September meeting the fee for resi-
dential will be $17.46 with no rental
fee. The City Commissioners decided
the rental fee will be dropped.
The Ordinance has a provision for
all residential account holders who
are 65 years old and older and whose
total household income does not ex-
ceed the federal poverty level guide-
lines shall be exempt from payment
of the garbage collection fee, subject
to prior application and approval by
the City Manager.
. Commercial and churches with
schools/soup kitchens will soon be
paying the following rates if approved.
Hand collected, two pick-ups per
week, 96 gallon cans $24.54. Dump-
ster rates will increase to eight yard

The Commissioners also agreed
to buy a B2620HSD 26HP Kubota
diesel tractor with a 50 inch bucket
for use at the city's waste water treat-
ment plant. The tractor will be used
to move slug and could also be used

Branford defeats Trenton in second half
By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers hosted the Bran-
ford Bucs in a non-district matchup
that was a classic Friday night high
school football game in the Suwan-
nee Valley. The Bucs under Coach
Bill Wiles pulled their speed card and
out scored the Tigers in the second
half to steal a 27-13 victory.
The Bucs drew first points as Se-
nior, John Perry scored his first of
four touchdowns in the game on a
50-yard run and kicked an extra point
for a 7-0 lead. The Tigers' Brandon
Stone put Trenton into the end zone
as he busted loose for a 58-yard run.
Cedric Stokes tied the score on an ex-
tra point kick.
Branford's Perry broke the tie in
the opening minutes of the third quar-
ter when he ran for a 36-yard touch-
down, Trenton's Caleb Smith tied the
game at 13-13 when he completed
a Tiger offensive drive on a 5-yard
touchdown run. Perry slipped away
from the Tigers' defense in the clos-
ing minutes of the third period when
he scored on a 74-yard run.
The Bucs picked up 2 points on a
Tiger safety. Branford took a 27-13
win when Perry dashed 34-yards for
a touchdown. Coach Wiles reported
Periry totaled 333 yards and had 9
tackles from his safety position.
The Tigers' Brandon Stone led the
offense on 6 carries for 89 yards. Ca-
leb Smith also gained 47 yards on 11
The Tigers on/defense were led
by Corbyn Pugh with 16 total tack-
les and 1 blocked extra point kick.
Colton Duquette had 8 solo and 6 as-
sisted tackles. Caleb Smith recorded
11 total tackles and 1 interception as
teammates T.J. Kircher had 9 tackles
and Hunter Parrish, Trevor Pelfrey,
and T.J. Calkins each had 6 tackles
for the Tigers.

Nothing felt like the Florida sun-
shine that warmed my little body
when I used to climb up in the back
window of my mom's big old green
Chevy Caprice, stretch out beneath
the back glass and soak up the sun on
long car rides.
Oh. the good ol days! I can remem-
ber my mom throwing her hand out
across the passenger seat to stop J and'
me from flying out the front wind-
shield if a dog ran out in the road,
or if, on' a rare occasion she drove
the green bomb off the shoulder of
the road and into:the ditch That arm
was all that kept tis from flying out
the windshield on several occasions,
including the night she 'hit,the big-
gest wild boar hog we had ever laid
eyes' on while driving back from my
grandparents' house in Cedar Key.
What a charmed little childhood I
had. Back then you could suck down
raw oysters, ride in the back of a
pickup truck. and even drag your feet
in the sand while riding on the tail-

out any fear of what might happen.
My how things have changed in
my 27 years.
Recently. I was called outby anoth-
er mother, who has a baby girl close
in age, to my own iAllie Claire. After
hearing that I had moved my, 20-
pound daughter, who is three weeks
shy of her first birthday up to a front
facing carseat. the mother decided
to chastise me '%ith all the perils of
our decision. Did I consider her inad-
equate neck strength before moving
her up? Did I kno%% that children un-
der the age of twvo should not sit in a
front facing carseat in the back seat?
Did I, stop to think about what would
happen if we were in an accident and
my baby was killed just because I put
her in a car seat that faces the front
. rather than the back?
Lord help, I thought, when did we
get .so scared? Don't get me wrong, if
the unthinkable were to happen, and
I did get in a car accident and Allie
Claire was injured as a result of being
in a different kind of carseat, I would
feel terrible, but ultimately I believe
in a God who is bigger than the what
My daughter does ride in a carseat.
In fact, she logs over 500 miles a
week in a carseat, and let me tell you
she is a much happier girl now that
she can look out the window and also
see her momma from her carseat.

cation, particularly iii the areas of fi-
nance and investments. According to
one survey, a third of all adults have
no non-retirement savings. A quarter
all adults have no savings for retire-
ment. It used' to be one in 10 had trou-
ble with their mortgage payments. I
believe the number is. now closer to
one in seven. One in five people have
said they can never afford to retire.
" As a nation, we cannot afford
to raise another generation that's
skidding toward financial disaster.
Greeting jobs at Walmart should not,
become a sought after form of em-
ployment. However, if you really
want to put off retirement until you
can call in dead then forego an intel-
ligent investment strategy.
One of the great ,retirement myths,
assuming you can retire, is that upon-
retirement you no longer have. to pay
taxes. Sorry, but the Uncle's tax col-
lection department never retires. Add
in the Pollyanna expectation that just
having a portfolio, even if it is unat-
tended to, will save your bacon and
there is trouble in the Land of Oz.
Compounding is indeed a power-
ful force. A small amount of money,
plus a lot of time, can equal a lot of
money. However, those who vacil-
late in their efforts may find the time
Portion of the equation so drastically

gram at an early age and then taper
off could accumulate so much more
just by consistently adding to a port-
folio of high quality stocks:
Failing to account for market vola-
tility taught many a bitter lesson. At
the same time volatility is not a rea-
son to abandon your portfolio. The
key is to never disregard the precept
of investment quality and the require-
ment for asset allocation.
Intelligent investing always does
well against the never-retire symp-
toms, while greed will restrict even
the best of intentions. Yet, some op-
timnists continue, to assume that one
day their below average income will
exceed their above average spend-
ing. Great, we call that the ostrich
approach. That lack of foresight
,also lends itself well to the work-
until-you-die lifestyle. Do you want

Oh, while you are deciding about
the need for starting or adding to an
investment program, keep in mind
They Shall See His Face
I wonder what the face of God looks like? Neither the
most radiant of sunrises nor the unmatched beauty of the
earth can.match the warmth of God's face. Jesus declared
that no man had seen God (John 1:28). Moses heard the
voice of Jehovah say, "You cannot see My face;for no man
shall see Me, and live" (Exodus 33:20). However, John the
apostle in the Revelation tells. us the saved will see the face
of God and "His name shall be on their foreheads"
(Revelation 22:4). What a day that will be to see the face of
The word.of God is likened to a love letter from someone
we have never met. The Lord writes to us with unseen face
and yet through the beauty of His letter of love revealed by'
the Holy Spirit (2 Peter 1:21) we can know what God looks
like. But like all. letters written with face unseen the real
person looks little as we would suppose. For each individual
the face of God is different. It is not because God is different
but our perception of the face of God is relative to our
knowledge of the Creator.
What does the face of God look like? Your answer says
more about your depth of knowledge of God's will than the
truth of his true character. To some he is only a lonely figure
sitting on a white throne with long flowing hair. To others he
is a mighty, champion of their faith as they have fought the
good fight meting out justice, 'mercy and truth. Those who
know Him best are those who spend time with His letter.
The Lord directed Aaron and his sons to give the
following blessing to the people of God: "The-Lord bless
you and keep you; The Lord make His face shine upon
you, And be gracious to you; The Lord lift up His
countenance upon you, and give you peace. So they shall
put My name on the children of Israel, and I will bless
them" (Numbers 6:24-27). The face of the Lord is like the
sun shining down upon our world giving all the blessings,
warmth and security. of a protective Father. Often the
expression imploring the face of God shining upon His
people is invoked to bring blessing. "Make Your face shine
upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies' sake ...
God be merciful to us and bless us and cause His face to
shine upon us ... Restore us, 0 God; cause Your face to
shine and we shall be saved ... Make Your face shine
upon Your servant, And teach me Your statutes" (Psalm
31:16; 67:1; 80:3,7,19; .119:135).
When we see the Son we see the Father (John 14:9;
S1:14). Those who are pure in heart will see God (Matthew
5:8): But the day will come when we remove the shackles
of our mortal tent and receive the "building from God, a
house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens" (2
Corinthians 5:1) and then we shall see Him as He is (1 John
3:1-2). The joy of salvation is being able to see the face of
God. We will stand in His presence. We will look into His
eyes. We will behold His beauty. We will immerse our spirit'
with His spirit. We will see the King in His beauty (Isaiah
In the midst of his suffering, Job proclaimed his trust in
His God. The conclusion of his speech rang with these
words: "Whom I shall see for myself and my eyes shall
behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me"
(Job 19:27). The power of God's word is the earnest desire
we have to see the face of God. The more we spend time
with God's letter the more anxious and desirous we are to
see Him. Live for Him each day and look with longing
heart to that moment in eternity you see God face to face.

also purchased a bottle of Tupelo

They had everything from bottle
after bottle of locally made hot sauc-
es to beef jerky..
Angie pointed me toward the cool-
ers that held homemade pies. The
coolers were stocked with pecan
pies, lemon pies, pumpkin pies, and
blueberry pies. They even had small
pies for one serving and regular, size
pies. The next cooler held a variety
of' drinks but not the usual Coke or
Pepsi. No sir, this cooler was stocked
with peach and strawberry Nehi

pleasant and very helpful. What a

Last Saturday I went roaming
up north a ways to do a little shop-
ping with my good friend and fellow
Southern Sister, Angie McKenzie.
We zoomed by a brightly colored
building on our way north and An-
gie said, "We want to stop there on
our way back." I have to admit I was
second guessing her sanity after we
passed the building which was cov-
ered with bright yellow signs that
were hand lettered in red. The many
signs proclaimed the sale of every-
thing from fresh Vidalia onions to
On our return trip heading South
Angie pulled into Walkers Pecan
House which is located at 16192'
US 19 North, Lamont, Florida. Just
in case you are wondering where in
the world Lamont is, lets just say'it's
about half way between Capps and
Eridu. Are you still wondering where
Lamont is? Well, it's also about 25
miles north of Perry, up there in Jef-
This part of US 19 is lined on both
sides with pine forest and not a whole
lot else, except for Walkers Pecan
House which is apparently a g9ing
concern in Lamont.
As we entered I noticed some fine
looking bags of Vidalia onions on the
porch. But once inside the building I
couldn't believe, all the pecans. Bag
after bag of pecans that were candy
coated or hot flavored. They even,
had Key Lime candy coated pecans.
I'm telling you, the ladies of Walkers
Pecan House sure have come up with
some pretty exciting ways to do up
our common pecans.
Angie quickly showed me that each
type of candied nut had a sample bag.,
The sampling' was on; I tried so many
kinds of nuts that I lost count. As I
made my way around the store it re-
minded me somewhat of. a Stuckeys.
The tables were lined with pecan logs

including Good and Evil pickles,

Illegal alien arrested
An illegal alien who had been liv-
ing in Fanning Springs was arrested
last week and charged with felony
domestic battery. According to the
Levy County Sheriff's Office, Depu-
ty Kevin Kinik arrested Joquin Mora,
44, of Mexico last Thursday. On Au-
gust 30 the victim reported that her
boyfriend, Mora, had accused her of
having an affair. At which time, Mora
allegedly began punching and kicking
the victim in the face and stomach.
Deputy Kinik indicated in his report
that Mora beat the victim so badly
that her face was extremely swollen
and bleeding and she could hardly
speak when deputies arrived .on the
scene. Mora left the home, which
is listed as 17977 NW 90 Court Lot
#1 Trenton, before deputies arrived.
After a lengthy search, Mora was
spotted driving his car in the area of
NW 160th Street at US Hwy. 19 last
Thursday. A traffic stop was conduct-
ed and Mora was arrested without in-
cident. He is currently being held in
the Levy County-Jail.

those who were lost and those who

Spotlight shines on local 4-H.
In 1909 a new club for young
people called 4-H began organizing
clubs for youth in Florida. This year
is the 100th anniversary of 4-H clubs
in the Sunshine State, and here in
Gilchrist County it is once again time
for young people ages 5-18 tojoin a
local 4-H Club. Any young person
is encouraged to join a local club
regardless of their race, gender, eth-
nicity, religion, or handicap. Young
people work on projects in their. 4-H
club which might include raising an
animal, growing a vegetable garden,
sewing, learning to safely and accu-
rately shoot a firearm, woodworking,
robotics, photography, citizenship,
fishing, horses, pets, engineering.. .in
fact there are over 100 project areas
youth can choose from!
Our 4-H members in Gilchrist
County have a' LOT of fun and have
really excelled in the last year. Con-
gratulations to last year's 4-H mem-
bers of the year. Our junior 4-H'er of
the year was Emily Horlocker of the
Udderly Perfect 4-H Club; the inter-
mediate 4-H'er of the year was Em-
ily Padot of Spring Ridge 4-H Club;
and the senior 4-H'er of the year was
Brittany McDaniel, Independent 4-
H'er. These young people, along
with many other 4-H'ers were recog-
nized at the annual awards banquet in
We are looking forward to another
successful year in 2009-2010 in Gil-
christ County 4-H. If you would like
to join a local club, or are just curious
and would like more information,
please call Chris DeCubellis, county
4-H extension agent, at 463-3174 and
see how you can get involved with
one of the oldest and largest youth
organizations in the country!

Matt and his wife Maureen are both
school teachers and have raised three
fine boys. Matt is the son of a Baptist
preacher (Rev. Jake Cravey). Matt
came back to Dixie County, where
he grew up, to teach Ag. and take on
the leadership of FFA and has been
recognized statewide for not only
turning around a program, but giv-
ing many students opportunities they
wouldn't otherwise have. Many of
his students have gone on to be very
successful because of the FFA skills
taught to them by Matt. His impact
has been substantial and he is missed
in his position as teacher, advisor,
friend and co-worker. He has been a
mentor to many.
Matt's son, L.B., is in college and
plays football for Charleston South-
ern. They played the University of
Florida in their opener this year and
L.B. got to play on Florida Field,

but due to his illness, he was unable
