Bell WoodTurner Gary Taylor is shown wearing one of the cowboy
hats he has made in his studio.

Local woodturners offer

unique Christmas gifts


By Carrie A. Mizell
A founding member of the Bell
WoodTurners, Gary Taylor can shape
a 100-pound block of wood into an
ornate cowboy hat that weighs just a
half pound in just one week.
The Bell resident began turning
wood nine years ago after picking
up a small lathe at a Jacksonville flea
market to make legs for a table he
was constructing. Unlike other forms
of woodworking, Taylor's hobby in-
volves the use of a lathe, which ro-
tates the wood so that it can be cut
and shaped.
Since picking up the art, Taylor has
taken classes from acclaimed wood-
turner Dick Sing, as well as having


attended the John C. Campbell Folk
School. Taylor even converted an
hold horse barn on his property into a
wood shop and a neighboring build-
ing into a studio, which is filled with
wood art he has constructed and sells
throughout the year. Prices vary from
$3 to $450 on his wood art as they
range from stamp holders, pens, and
bowls of all sizes, to cowboy hats,
napkin rings, potpourri pots, ear-
rings, Christmas ornaments and even
deer calls.
Taylor turns a variety of differ-
ent woods including pecan, hickory,
sweet gum, sycamore, cherry aind

Spring Ridge seeks estimate

for special assessment on

resurfacing roads


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion was addressed by Carlos Perez,
chairman of the Spring Ridge Road
Committee, seeking support for re-
surfacing of the estimated five miles
of streets in the Spring Ridge subdi-
vision.
Perez told the board on Monday,
that the residents of Spring Ridge
have been working for years to im-
prove their roads, but have been un-
able to meet the challenge. The Spring
Ridge Civic Association formed a
Road Committee of residents that
have been meeting with county staff
and commissioners seeking some so-
lutions to road improvements.
Gilchrist County recommended
that Spring Ridge consider adopting
a Special Assessment for property
owners to pay for road resurfacing in'
the subdivision.
Perez explained to the Commission
that some of the property owners in
the county's largest residential subdi-
vision are eager to pay whatever the
costs are to have their roads improved.
A majority of the 197 estimated prop-
erty owners want to know what the
cost will be before they agree to enter
into a contract with Gilchrist County
involving road improvement.
Perez told the board that before the
property owners enter into this pro-
gram, more information involving
the details of the improvements and
costs are needed. He told the board
that Lee Mills, an engineer that has
worked with Gilchrist Cpunty, has
information that he could present to
identify the cost in relation to the
needed road improvements.

Ron McQueen, Gilchrist County
administrator, told the board that
when Gilchrist County approved the
first Special Assessment involving
Rolling Oaks subdivision, the esti-
mates were set too low to cover the
costs involved in the entire project.
He pointed out that.there were over
200 loads of limerock that were used
in the road bed before the asphalt was
applied.
Lee Mills told the board that he
could review his records and take the
information from the last several re-
surfacing projects in Gilchrist County
to come up with an estimate per mile
for the commission to use involving
the Spring Ridge special assessment.
Mills explained that this resurfacing
project might need an estimated 15
percent added to the costs to include
the material needed for those specific
areas.
County commissioners, Road De-
partment Superintendent Billy Can-'
non and Mills looked at a map dur-
ing the meeting to get an idea of how
many actual low places there are in
the Spring Ridge subdivision.
They discussed that these identi-
fied spots in the road bed would have
to be re-worked and more limerock
added to the road bed before the
paving could be applied. The group
discussed that there was a low lying
area on NE 58th Terrace and the pos-
sibility of storm water retention in an
adjacent area might be a condition to
keep water off the road and the right
of way.
The commission asked Mills what
the cost of his getting figures on
road resurfacing would be and what
it would cost the board involving
this project. Mills explained that he
might have to revisit the identified
area again to make sure of particular
points of interest.
"I feel like I could give the board
information that they could base an
estimate for this project on for $200,"
Mills explained. Commissioner D.
Ray Harrison, Jr. told the board that
he was not in favor of the county
spending several thousand dollars to
determine a cost of the project with-
out having a commitment from the
Spring Ridge property owners to go
forward with the project. The board
agreed for Mills to go ahead and pre-
pare the estimate based on the pro-
posed $200 cost to the county com-
mission.


Gilbert, Cowart and Perryman


crowned Trenton High royalty


By Carrie A. Mizell
Best friends since they started
kindergarten together at Trenton El-
ementary School, KaSandra Cowart
and Jessica Perryman now share the
title of 2009 Trenton High School
Homecoming Queen.
Cowart and Perryman were
crowned Friday night during half-
time of the homecoming football
game. Though the Tigers fell short of
a victory against the Wildwood Wild-
cats, running back/linebacker Karson
Gilbert felt like royalty after being
crowned 2009 Homecoming King.
Festivities held throughout the
week to commemorate homecoming
included a classroom door decoration
contest, dress up days for each day of
the week, Tiger Growl on Thursday
night and finally the annual home-
coming parade.
Early in the week students helped
teachers decorate classroom doors to
show their Tiger pride. Winners of
the classroom door decoration con-
test were: first place-5th grade, sec-
ond place-Dual Enrollment classes
and third place-6th grade.
High school students perform-
ing fairy tale skits were a riot at
this year's Tiger Growl. Winners of
the skit contest were: first place-9th
grade, second place-10th grade and
third place-11th grade.
On Friday afternoon, as the side-
walks filled with people, law en-
forcement vehicles, fire trucks, beau-

Snydery had fond memories of her
visits to her grandparents' home
in Buffalo Valley. She had spent
most of her life in Savannah, but as
an adult, she visited in this slowly
disappearing little town. She was
in love with a young man in her
home town but he was not in-
terested in marriage, maybe just
living together. In Buffalo Valley
she was hired as a teacher in the
high school, found true love, real
happiness and learned the answer to
a puzzle she had always worried
about since her childhood

The Pride Of The Drunkard
(Kent Heaton)


Basil said, "Drunkenness is the ruin of reason. It is
premature old age. It is temporary death" (Homilies, c.
375). There are few things engaged in by man that is as
self-defeating and destructive as drunkenness. Quite
frankly it is. stupid beyond reason. A radio commentator
recently described a time he had so much to drink he could
not remember going home, how he got home nor who took
him home. The sad part of his remarks is that it was a boast
with laughter intermixed of his drinking exploits. I thought
of his wife who had to put up with a drunk coming home;
possibly children. What about what they had to endure?
The pride of the drunkard is described in Proverbs
23:29-35. "Who has woe? Who has sorrow? Who has
Contentions? Who has complaints? Who has wounds
without cause? Who has redness of eyes? Those who
linger long at the wine, those who go in search of mixed
wine. Do not look on the wine when it is red, when it
sparkles in the cup, when it swirls around smoothly; at
the last it bites like a serpent, and stings like a viper. Your
eyes will see strange things, and your heart will utter
perverse things. Yes, you will be like one who lies down in
the midst of the sea, or like one who lies at the top of the
mast, saying: 'They have struck me, but I was not hurt;
They have beaten me, but I did not feel it. When shall I
awake, that I may seek another drink?'" The remarkable
part of this scenario is after all the pain endured the man
seeks another drink.
"Drunkenness is a vice which is painful and sickly in the
very acting of it" (Jeremy Taylor, 1651). Billions of dollars
are spent each year to promote drunkenness and billions of
dollars are exacted to pay the health, mental and family
crisis that is caused by the foolishness of alcohol. The news
is filled with stories of pain and sorrow because of the


impact of drunkenness. The word of God gives stern
warnings of its consequence. Because of drunkenness
Noah was uncovered before his family (Genesis 9:20-27)
and Canaan was cursed. The daughters of Lot committed
incest with their father when they got him drunk (Genesis
19:30-38). David got Uriah drunk trying to cover up his
adultery with Bathsheba (2 Samuel 11:13).
There is no glory in drunkenness. "A drunken man
staggers in his vomit ... For all tables are full of vomit
and filth; no place is clean ... Woe to him who gives
drink to his neighbor, pressing him to your bottle, even to
make him drunk, that you may look on his nakedness!
You are filled with shame instead of glory. You
also-drink! And be exposed as uncircumcised! The cup
of the Lord's right hand will be turned against you, and
utter shame will be on your glory" (Isaiah 19:14; 28:8;
Habakkuk 2:15-16).
The greater sadness is found in moments of reckless
folly here will only lead to an eternal sadness in Hell. "Do
you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the
kingdom of God? Do not be deceived ... drunkards ...
will [not] inherit the kingdom of God" (1 Corinthians
6:9-10). It will not be funny to be a drunk in Hell. There
will be neither pride nor boasting of drunkenness in
torment; only the sad realization that life was about living
with God and not dying through the bottle.
Children of God have enough to deal with in temptation
stone sober than to cause a greater temptation through the
drinking of alcohol. "Abstain from every form of evil" (I
Thessalonians 5:22). "As Hie who called you is holy, you
also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, 'Be
holy,for I am holy'" (I Peter 1:15-16). Don't be a fool!

Boys Scout members retrieve large rocks from the bottom of spring run at the Otter Springs Park and
Campground cleanup October 24.

Otter Springs cleanup a success


High school and college students,
Boy Scout troops and others helped
make Otter Springs Park and Camp-
ground a better place to swim, fish
and camp. On October 24, about 254
volunteers participated in a cleanup
effort at the park. The event was
organized by Current Problems in
partnership with Gilchrist County,
Karst Environmental Services/Karst
Productions, WUFT and Suwannee
River Water Management District
(SRWMD).
A dive crew and several Boy Scout
members worked to retrieve 35
large rocks from the bottom of Otter
Spring. A group of college students
helped clean out trash and other de-
bris in and around a sinkhole on the
property. Other volunteers paddled in
kayaks and canoes to help clean the


spring run. In all, an estimated 8,215
pounds of garbage - including con-
crete, tires and a dumpster filled with
trash bags - was collected..
"We are thrilled with the job all
the volunteers did. They pitched in
and made a tremendous difference at
the park," said Nancy Nieman, park
manager for Otter Springs Park and
Campground.
Nieman said while staff at the
park keeps the campground and hik-
ing trails litter-free, volunteers at the
cleanup took care of areas less no-
ticeable.
"They were going back in the
woods, the bushes, the rough stuff,"
she said.
Current Problems, which headed
up the event, is an environmental
group that conducts cleanup efforts


for Northeast Florida's rivers, lakes,
springs and creeks.
Fritzi Olson, Current Problems
executive director, said cleaning up
waterways is important to protect the
aquifer and ocean.
"What goes into them (waterways),
goes into our drinking water. What
doesn't, will eventually float into the
ocean," she said.
Olson said cleanup events serve as
a teaching tool that demonstrates the
effects of stormwater runoff and ille-
gal dumping. .
"What we do on land affects our
surface and ground waters," she
said.
Otter Springs Park and Camp-
ground, in Trenton, is owned by
SRWMD and managed by Gilchrist
County.

America and its people are living
in crucial times. Bill Bozeman's
message is timely and direct from the
Bible. Here are some thoughts from
Bro. Bill...
When King Solomon had finished
building the Temple of God and dedi-
cated it to God, he experienced a spe-
cial visitation at night by the Lord. 2
Chronicles 7:12-15 says, "And the
Lord appeared to Solomon by night,
and said unto him, 'I have heard thy
prayer, and have chosen this place to
myself for a house of sacrifice. If I
shut up heaven that there be no rain,
or if I command the locusts to devour
the land, or if I send pestilence among
my people; if my people, which are

called by my name, shall humble
themselves, and pray, and seek my
face, and turn from their wicked
ways; then will I hear from heaven,
and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land. Now my eyes shall be
open, and mine ears attend unto the
prayer that is made in this place."
This is probably the most quoted
passage of Scripture in relation to re-
vival and spiritual awakening. Notice
that the first requirement in seeking
revival from the Lord is to "humble
themselves." The root meaning of the
word humble is "to bend the knee."
It is a picture of brokenness. It is the
very opposite of pride. 1 Peter 5:5-
7 says, "God resisteth the proud, and
giveth grace to the humble. Humble
yourselves therefore under the mighty
hand of God, that He may exalt you
in due time; casting all your care
upon Him; for He careth for you."
Most of us will not humble our-
selves until we see that we are help-
less, hopeless and bankrupt before
God. In most cases, we must come to
a place of desperation before we will
ever cry out to God for help. Vance
Havner, one of the most quoted
preachers from the previous century,
said, "The situation is desperate, but
we're not." Only when we are des-
perate and destitute before God will
we earnestly seek His help.
It is my hope and prayer that we
will all see our desperate need of God
in genuine revival and will earnestly
pray for Him to move in our midst as
never before.
See you at the tent on November
15.

Written by Lily Apple (8th Grade)
From carving pumpkins, home-
work, tutoring, French, and Crimi-
nal Justice to technology, jour-
nalism, ROTC and BETTER
GRADES!!! What do all these have
in common? Students and teachers
at Bell High School (BHS) are giv-
ing two thumbs up for the 21st Cen-
tury After school Program which
started on September 21. Students
are now getting homework done,
getting tutored on subjects that they
are having difficulty with, and are
beginning to have a new focus to-
wards learning.
"The 21st Century Program is a
federally funded after school pro-
gram," says Mr. Gray Smith, 8th
grade Science teacher and direc-
tor of the program, "and is open to
any 6th - 12th grade student.". Mr.
Smith, when asked if we had any
trouble recruiting students replied,
"The program is going very well
and is coming together." After sur-
veying the students' interests, Mr.
Smith said "we hope to add new
programs like scrapbooking, sci-
ence, and dance."
Students were interviewed this
week by our journalism class to
get their opinions on the program.
"I am starting to understand alge-

"it is fun being with my friends to
do homework." Classroom teachers
are also praising the program. Our
teachers are starting to see better
grades, our homework is complete
and turned in, and that we are more
attentive in class.
After doing their homework and
getting tutored, the students are
learning about technology. Each
week, students are creating and
maintaining websites, finding out
how to operate video cameras to
film videos, and are working to re-
vive and publish the old BHS news-
paper "Dawg Tails" in electronic
form.
"Bonjour" says our French teach-
er. We are having fun learning the
language from another culture. The
Criminal Justice and ROTC Pro-
grams are just as fun! We may not
all go into law enforcement -but,
it is such fun to study fingerprints,
learn law, and use all the forensic
tools! In ROTC, we are learning the
importance of good morals and val-
ues, trust, and how to work together
as a group.
This past week, the 21st Centu-
ry Program kept the holiday spirit
alive, by artistically challenging us
to carve pumpkins. Our program is
getting bigger, more fun, and more
knowledgeable.

Cold weather stayed north, the
moon was almost full, and everyone
was ready for a good time.
Bell Elementary PTA held our an-
nual Fall Festival on Friday, October
30. This was earlier than usual and
the night before Halloween, so our
students were in a celebrating mood.
It was a noisy crowd that overtook
our campus to enjoy the inflatables,
the booths, and the DJ. Yummy cakes
were won at the cake walk and the
silent auction was alive with people
ready to shop. You could buy some-
thing to eat from the safety patrol and
the PTA was selling cotton candy and
sno-cones.
The Bell Elementary PTA would
like to thank everyone who helped
with their time, their talent, their do-
nated items, and/or their cash dona-
tions. We are committed to helping
our students and our school. With a
caring community supporting our ac-
tivities and fundraising, we will con-
tinue to reach our goals.

City of Fanning Springs
17651 N.W. 90th Court
Fanning Springs, FL 32693
(352) 463-2855
These notices shall satisfy two separate
but related procedural requirements for
activities to be undertaken by the City of
Fanning Springs.
On or about November 23, 2009, the
City of Fanning Springs will submit a re-
quest to the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs for the release of Commu-
nity Development Block Grant (CDBG)
funds under Title I of the Housing and
Community Development Act, as amend-
ed, to undertake a project to provide first
time installation of 9,800 LF of 8-inch
gravity sewer lines in an area bound by
Stephen Foster Avenue on the North,
Florida Street on the East, Canal Avenue
on the South, and Spring Run Road on
the West. The project will include sewer
hook-ups and abandonment of 50 septic
tanks along with park improvements to
Fort Fanning Park.
The City.of Fanning Springs has de-
termined that the project will have no
significant impact on the human envi-
ronment. Therefore, an Environmental
Impact Statement under the National En-
vironmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA)
is not required. Additional project in-
formation is contained in the Environ-
mental Review Record (ERR) on file at
Fanning Springs City Hall, 17651 N.W.
90th Court, Fanning.Springs, FL 32693,
and may be examined or copied during
normal operating hours.
Any individual, group, or agency may
submit written comments on the ERR to
the City of Fanning Springs. All com-
ments must be received within 15 days
following the publication date of this no-
tice, by November 20, 2009. Comments
will be considered prior to the City of
Fanning Springs requesting a release of
funds. Comments should specify which
notice they are addressing.
The Fanning Springs certifies to the
Florida Department of. Community Af-
fairs and the Department of Housing &
Urban Development (HUD) that Ms.
Cheryl Nekola in her capacity as Mayor
consents to accept the jurisdiction of the
Federal Courts if an action is brought to
enforce responsibilities in relation to the
environmental review process and that
.these responsibilities have been satisfied.
The State's approval of the certification
satisfies its responsibilities under NEPA
and related laws and authorities and al-
lows the City of Fanning Springs to use
the CDBG funds.
HUD will accept objections to its re-
lease of funds and the City's certification
for a period of fifteen days following the
anticipated submission date or its actual
receipt of the request (whichever is later)
only if they are on one of the following
bases: (a) the certification was not exe-
cuted by the Certifying Officer of the City
of Fanning Springs; (b) the City of Fan-
ning Springs has omitted a-step or failed
to make a decision or finding required by
HUD regulations at 24 CFR part 58; (c)
the grant recipient has committed funds
or incurred costs not authorized by 24
CFR Part 58 before approval of a release
of funds by the State; or (d) another Fed-
eral agency acting pursuant to 40 CFR
Part 1504 has submitted a written find-
ing that the project is unsatisfactory from
the standpoint of environmental quality.
Objections must be prepared and sub-
mitted in accordance with the required
procedures (24 CFR Part 58, Sec. 58.76)
and shall be addressed to the Florida De-
partment of Community Affairs, CDBG
Program, 2555 Shumard Oak Boulevard,

tial objectors should contact the City of
Fanning Springs to verify the actual last

Pub. November 5, 2009


Notice and Public Explanation of a
Proposed Activity in the 100-Year
Floodplain and Wetland
To: All interested Agencies, Groups
and Individuals
This is to give notice that the City of
Fanning Springs has conducted an evalu-
ation as required by Executive Orders
11988 and 11990 in accordance with
HUD regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to
determine the potential effect that its ac-'
tivity in the floodplain and wetland will
have on the environment.
The City of Fanning Springs intends
to undertake a project to be funded by a
Florida Small Cities Community Devel-
opment Block Grant. The project is for
first time installation of 9,800 LF of 8-
inch, gravity sewer lines in an area bound
by Stephen Foster Avenue on the north,
Florida Street on the East, Canal Avenue
on the South, and on the West side by
Spring Run Road. The project will in-
clude sewer hook-ups and abandonment
of 50 septic tanks along with park im-
provements to Fort Fanning Park.
It was determined that there is no prac-
ticable alternative other than to proceed
with'the work. This activity will have no
significant impact on the environment for
the following reasons:
The additional sewer line installation
will provide a much higher level of ef-
ficiency for residents and will be more
environmentally friendly. The included
hook-ups and septic tank abandonment
will be paid with CDBG funds and benefit
the community economically. Improve-
ments to Fort Fanning Park include new
lighting in the Park's parking area and
entrance way. These improvements are
beneficial for safety purposes and general
overall appearance of the park.
Although the project is located in the
100 year floodplain, the improvements
cannot be undertaken in any other loca-
tion due to the'scope of the project. There
is, therefore, no practicable alternative.
The proposed improvements conform
to applicable floodplain protection stan-
dards. The proposed action will not affect
natural or beneficial floodplain values,
and residents of the community will ben-
efit from the project. Failure to provide
improvements to the sewer lines and sep-
.tic tank abandonment could cause serious
environmental problems due to them be-
ing so close to the river.
Additional agencies involved in this
project include the Florida Department
of Community Affairs and the U.S. De-
partment of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment.
Written comments must be received
by the City of Fanning Springs at 17651
N.W. 90th Court, Fanning Springs, Flor-
ida 32693, on or before November 23,
2009.
Additional information regarding the
project may be obtained by contacting
Sheila Watson, City Clerk at (352) 463-
2855.
A more detailed description of the proj-
ect and the FIA flood maps are available
for citizen review at the City of Fanning
Spring, 17651 N.W. 90th Court, Fanning
Springs, Florida 32693.

"I like exotic woods," Taylor said.
"But I use a lot of local wood. Free
wood is what we use the most of."
Each July Taylor, along with the
26 other members of the Bell Wood-
Turners, holds a daylong community
sale in Bell.
They also occasionally combine
their talents to make one large wood-
turning project. Over the summer the
club members won first place in the
fantasy division of the Chapter Col-
laborative Challenge at the American
Association of Woodturners 23rd an-
nual symposium with their project,
"Balloon Fiesta." Over 70 percent of
the club's members participated in
this project, which took six to eight
months to construct. It has since been
donated to the City of Albuquerque's
Civic Center. The winning plaque,
picture and list of participants is


proudly displayed in Taylor's studio.
Club members gather on the last
Saturday of each month to work with
local 4-H members during a hands-on
class that gives children the chance to
learn to turn wood. Thus far, the 4-
H members have made pens, bowls,
stools and honey dippers.
The Bell WoodTurners meet once a
month at the Bell Community Center
on US 129. Their next monthly meet-
ing will be Thursday, Nov. 12 at 7
p.m. The public is invited to attend.
On Saturday, Dec. 5 the community
will have an opportunity to purchase
wood art that the Bell WoodTurners
have made, which will make great
Christmas presents. The WoodTurn-
ers will have two tents set up at the
Bell Christmas Parade.
To learn more about the wood art
Gary Taylor has made, call 463-2605,

Tigers in

homecoming
The Trenton Tigers were looking
to get on the winning track Friday
night as they faced District 5-1A foe
Wildwood in Homecoming 2009.
The Tigers got off to a big start as
sophomore running back Brandon
Stone scored on a 42-yard scamper to
give Trenton the 7-0 lead. Wildwood
quickly answered as they picked up
a Tiger fumble and turned it into
points as they tied the score at 7-7.
The Wildcats capitalized on another
Tiger miscue as Wildwood returned
the fumble to the Tigers' 7-yard line.
They went on to score and take a 14-
7 lead. Wildwood closed out the first
half on a touchdown to take a 21-7
lead into intermission.
The Tigers came out hot in the third
period as Brandon Stone returned the
opening kickoff 92 yards for a touch-
down. He also took a pitch from
quarterback Caleb Smith and dashed
around the end 24 yards for the Ti-
gers' final score: Wildwood defeated
the Tigers 55-20 in this game.
In the third quarter, officials on the
field stopped the play when fumes
from an adjacent Smoker's Express
convenience store blew west into the
Trenton stands and onto the football
field of play. Trenton Police Chief
Billy Smith reported the game was
stopped for 20 minutes to allow the
gasoline fumes from the off loading
truck to dissipate. Chief Smith ex-
plained that there were no injuries.
reported from the fans' or football
players' inhaling of the gas fumes.
Wildwood with the win clinched a
second place in District 5-1A behind

will host Hamilton County Friday
night with the kickoff set for 7:30
p.m.
