Sheriff returns $58,700 to the county from 2008-09


By John M. Ayers
Gilchrist County Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter recently presented the Gil-
christ County Commissioners with
$58,700 in revenue that was remain-
ing from the Sheriff's Office 2008-09
operating budget.
Sheriff Slaughter presented the
check to the county and thanked the
board for working with him during


these difficult financial times.
Sheriff Slaughter asked the five
board members if they would con-
sider providing the Sheriff's Office
with revenues in order to allow him
to purchase two additional patrol ve-
hicles for the Sheriff's Office.
He told the board that the patrol
vehicles cost $26,000 each which
included the paint and decals, lights,


and a sheriff's radio.
The Commission asked the Sher-
iff how many patrol vehicles he had
considered ordering from the budget
request he made for the 2009-2010
year.
Sheriff Slaughter reported he had
ordered five units at $26,000 each.
"I'll take whatever help you can
give us," Sheriff Slaughter explained


to the board.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to provide the sheriff
with $52,000 for the department to
purchase two additional patrol units
this year.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
agreed with a second for the board's
consideration.
The board approved the request by


a unanimous vote.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen asked the sheriff to
please let him know if his department
had any pickup trucks that they would
be getting rid of this year. The county
is in need of a used truck, McQueen
further explained. Sheriff Slaughter
said he would notify McQueen if one
became available.

Planning

Commission
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action to appoint a new board
member to the Gilchrist Planning
Commission on Monday.
Gilchrist County had recently ad-
.vertised for a single vacancy to the
five-member planning board after
Joe Sullivan resigned. The County
Commission reviewed the six appli-
cations that were submitted to fill the
position. The board agreed to appoint
Chaille Wilson of District 1 to fill the
remaining term of Joe Sullivan.
The Gilchrist County residents
that submitted applications to the
volunteer position were: Shelby D.
Boyette II, Richard Esseck, Lowell
Chesborough, Robert Monica, and
James Hastings. The Gilchrist Com-
mission discussed the applicants and
determined that the Planning Com-
mission at the present time is made
up of residents that live in each of the
five commission districts. Joe Sul-
livan resided in District 1. A motion
by Commissioner Randy Durden was
to appoint the District 1 resident to
fill the remaining term of the vacated
board member. The board approved
the motion by a unanimous vote. The
County Commission thanked the six
applicants for their interest in becom-
ing involved in the Gilchrist County
Planning Commission.
Gilchrist County attorney John
McPherson explained to the commis-
sion that he would submit a resolu-
tion to the board in the next meeting
for Mrs. Wilson to be appointed by
this resolution as an official act.

Tommy Horton


By Carrie A. Mizell
Having no opposition, Glen Thig-
pen will retain his position as mayor
of Trenton, and it looked like Com-
missioner Arlene Wilks would also
go unopposed, up until just before 5
p.m. on Friday when a candidate sub-
mitted his intent to run.
According to Connie Sanchez, Gil-
christ County supervisor of elections,
Trenton resident Eli Hines submitted


paperwork stating his intent to run
for Wilks' seat just before qualifying
for the upcoming election ended last
week. Registered voters living within
the Trenton city limits will have the
opportunity to vote for either the in-
cumbent, Arlene Wilks or Eli Hines
for Trenton City Commissioner on
Tuesday, Dec. 8. The polls will be

Give a warm and snuggly Christmas gift Plans


By Carrie A. Mizell
With a mother who has battled not
one, but two different types of can-
cer, Tracy Ridgeway can honestly
say that she has a heart for cancer
patients.
Not only is Ridgeway actively in-
volved with the Relay For Life, but
she also makes blankets, which she
gives to cancer survivors at no cost,
other than the minimal supply costs
involved.
Her passion for making blankets
began last year when Ridgeway de-
cided she wanted to make a special
John Deere blanket for her soon-to-
be-born nephew, Jaxson Ridgeway.
After a lesson from Asheton San-
chez, who learned to make the blan-
kets through 4-H, Ridgeway was on
to the project.
"After making Jaxson's, I just
quit," Ridgeway said, with a shrug
of her shoulders. "But I've started
back up now making the blankets as
a fundraiser for the Relay."
Several of Ridgeway's blankets are
for sale through a silent auction table
set up in the Gilchrist County Court-
house in an effort to raise money for
the courthouse's 2010 Relay For Life
team. So far the most popular blan-
ket has been a Florida State Seminole
blanket that sold for $150. At press
time a Florida Gator blanket was up
to $55 and a John Deere blanket was
going for $30.
"We are $1,000 towards our goal
for the Relay, which is $3,500,"
Ridgeway said.
Blanket designs range from bright-
ly colored bugs and breast cancer
survivor ribbons to collegiate football
teams and John Deere tractors. Blan-
kets also come in a variety of sizes;
the two-yard blanket takes Ridgeway
about an hour and a half, while a
three yard blanket can take her up to
a full weekend to complete.
Though she is shy about selling
her blankets, Ridgeway said she has
sold several to-friends who purchase
the fleece they want and then ask her
to make the blankets. Three Rivers

term investment required to establish
and maintain this valuable ecosys-
tem. The program offers NIPF land-
owners incentive payments for con-
ducting certain approved forest man-
agement practices that help establish
or improve longleaf pine stands. This
program is administered by the Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services Division of For-
estry (DOF) and is funded through a
grant from the USDA Forest Service
and the American Recovery and Re-
investment Act.
The program offers incentive
payments for: *Longleaf pine seed-
ling establishment *Timber stand
improvement *Prescribed burn-
ing *Native plant understory estab-
lishment *Mechanical underbrush
treatments *Invasive exotic plant
treatment. To apply to the program,
landowners should obtain the follow-
ing documents from the Division of

Maryland in June 2009.


This 1984 Ford Brush Truck from Bell was the only Florida firetruck
to participate in the Maryland State Fireman's Convention.

local fire rescue vehicles


By Carrie A. Mizell
Ernest Hilliard may have left his
hometown of Bell in 1942 to join the
Army, but he could not part with Gil-
christ County entirely.
Over the last two years, Hilliard
and his son, David Hilliard have re-
turned to Bell to purchase two fire
rescue vehicles that they now enter in
shows and parades throughout Mary-
land and Virginia.
The father and son are so pas-
sionate about fire rescue vehicles
that they own a dozen including the


two they purchased from the Town
of Bell, which include a 1975 Ford
Pierce mini-pumper and a 1984 Ford
brush truck.
"They look so fire ready people
think they came up from Florida just
for their shows," Ernest Hilliard said.
"Both trucks are in excellent condi-
tion."
With their pet dalmation by their
side, the two men did drive the fire
rescue vehicles back to their home in
Dunkirk, Maryland after acquiring
them in Gilchrist County.

The many hours of my life spent
baking cakes, preparing demonstra-
.tions, and walking hogs through 4-
H and FFA could not have prepared
:me for spending one day in a chick-
'en house hatching and vaccinating
11,000 baby chicks.
Last Wednesday was a learning ex-
perience if there ever was one.
My in-laws are chicken farmers
and up until last week that was just
about all I could tell you about.what
,they do for a living.
Broilers, or layers? I had no idea.
I just knew after three and a half
years of marriage to Adam, that roost-
:ers really do cock-a-doodle-doo first
' thing in the morning and the sound of
-multiple roosters alerting the sun that
it is time to rise and shine is really
:something to behold.
I filled in for my mother-in-law on
:Wednesday since she was not feeling
:up to the rigors of hatch day, though
'she did show me how to mix vaccine
'prior to leaving the chicken house.
The machines were set up with
vaccine,'which runs out of an IV bag
'and through a line into the machine.
One by one we picked up the chicks


and ran them through the machines,
which gives them a small injection in
the back of the neck to prevent nu-
merous diseases, which chickens are
susceptible to.
My favorite part of hatch day, oth-
er than getting to spend some qual-
ity time with my father-in-law and
brother-in-law doing what they love,
was when my brother-in-law Luke
gave me some sage advice.
"Don't stop and play with the
chickens," Luke advised with a very
serious face. "Daddy. doesn't like
that."
Apparently female poultry person-
nel have stopped to comment on a
chick's beautiful coloring in the past,
much.to my father-in-law's dismay.
I assured Luke that I am not too
fond of pets in general and would
therefore not be stopping to "play
with the chickens."
And it's a good thing because those
boys are all business when it comes
to hatch day!
Though it was an experience and
one I would be happy to fill-in at
anytime, I think I'll stick with my
day job!

Homoreg AAmerica Veterams


By Paula Walls
Have you ever wondered why
Americans today have so much free-
dom? Have you ever thought it's be-
cause of our veterans?
Not enough people respect or honor
our American veterans; some veter-
ans are homeless or very poor roam-
ing on the streets looking for food
or money. I think we should honor
our American veterans because some
gave up their lives for our freedom,
and we Americans have given them
nothing...
To start off with, I think American
veterans should be honored because
they have given their lives up for our
freedom. They left the many valu-
able things we have to fight for our
country's freedom. They went on
the frontlines knowing that they had
a great possibility of dying, yet they
still pushed forward. Some went
many days starving, praying that it
all would be over soon. Many times
memories would come back remind-
ing them of their buddies that have
passed away doing the same thing
they were doing. Yet, they still ven-
tured forward because they under-
stood their honor and duties. They
fought for many years not knowing
when it would end.
Secondly, American veterans
should be honored because they left
behind their'iVed ones,'"tb even
wives who were expecting a baby,
for Americans today to be with their
families freely. Can you imagine get-
ting ready for war, saying goodbye to
the ones you plan on spending the
rest of your life with, knowing that
it might.be the last time you will ever
see them again? The only thing they
had were pictures or letters which
they sometimes never got. They lay
on the ground wondering where their
families were or what they would be
doing, how big the baby was getting.
Most of the time they would get let-
ters telling them that one of their ones
had died or gotten in a serious acci-
dent; even though they wanted to quit
they didn't because they knew what
their duties were and kept going for
usAmericans today to live freely.
Lastly, when you eat a hot home-
cooked meal, drink cold purified wa-
ter, go out and buy new clothes, or
even take a nice hot shower, do you
think of the veterans who sit out in the
trenches getting soaking wet from the


I love old....old hounds lying under
the porch, old grandpas in overalls,
old grandmas sitting in their rock-
ers. Old silver slightly tarnished, old
Roseville pottery, old time recipes,
old faded aprons and old quilts which
truly make my heart flutter.
Each Tuesday evening it is my
pleasure to spend a couple hours with
some very good friends and mighty
fine ladies who also love quilts old
and new. The ladies of the Spring-
house Quilt Guild, Night Owl Group,
gather weekly to spend time sewing
and quilting new projects.
Through the years we have become
very good friends to each other. After
a busy day babysitting my two grand-
children, Allie and Gus, I'm always
pleased to find myself with needle in
hand laughing and enjoying lots of
good fellowship for a'few hours with
this group.
Every other year the Springhouse
day and evening members come to-
gether to display our handiwork.This
biennial show will be held this Fri-
day and Saturday. The Quilt Show
will begin at the Methodist Church
and continue across the street to First
Baptist Church in Trenton. The show
begins at 9 a.m. and lasts until 5:30
p.m. on Friday. The quilt show opens
again on Saturday at 9 a.m. and clos-
es at 3 p.m.
The entire group of quilters would
like to issue a personal invitation to


everyone in the tri-county area to
come out to see the beautiful hand-
made quilts. There will be nearly 150
quilts hanging throughout both fel-
lowship halls. These quilts have nev-
er been displayed in a show before.
Also it will be a good opportunity
to do a little Christmas shopping as
the group has made many handmade
items which will be displayed and for
sale in the gift shop.
So, come one, come all to the 2009
Quilt Show where my fellow quilters
will,display their beautiful quilts for
the community to enjoy.

Thanksgiving is just around the
corer and I thought this might be
a good time to try out this very fall
squash recipe.
* 'Sas9^ lJa/e'(ca) vJt~a4s
2 acorn squash
1/2 cup melted butter
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup heavy.cream
(whipping cream)
Cut acorn squash in half and re-
move seeds. Set squash, cut side
up, in a greased baking dish. Brush
each half of squash with melted but-
ter. Mix syrup and cream. Fill each
squash with syrup-cream mixture.
Cover dish with foil and make sev-
eral holes in foil with fork. Bake in
a preheated oven at 350 degrees for
About 1 hour. Makes 4 servings.

cold, downpouring rain? The many
things American have, they take for
granted. Do they ever think that the
many things they take for granted,
they probably would never have
if it weren't for our veterans who
have fought and are still fighting in
the many wars that most Americans
are too afraid to fight in? The thing
we have we have been given, but
the ones who fought for us to have
those things do not have any of the
things we have. Some of them made
it through but the ones who have are
walking up and down the very streets
we drive down every day begging
for food or money stranded without
a home, having horrifying memories
replaying in their heads.
In conclusion, I think American
veterans should be honored because
they have 'left behind everything,
their families, their freedom and any
thing else they might have had just
for us and our country to be able to
speak freely and live freely. They lay
on icy cold grounds with memories
dancing in their heads of the people
they had killed or watched die. So,
just remember our American veterans
are the ones who allowed you to have
those things and that they should be
honored no matter who they are to-
day.

The Name Of Christ's Church
(Kent Heaton)

Jesus promised to build His church in Matthew 16:18. Antioch was where Barnabas brought Saul (Paul) and
He bought the church with His own blood (Acts 20:28) and "for a whole year they assembled with the church and
reigns as King and only head of the church (Revelation taught a great many people. And the disciples were first
19:16; Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 1:22,23; '4:15; 5:23). called Christians in Antioch" (Acts 11:26). Paul would
After His resurrection Jesus spent time with His disciples later call for the "elders of the church" (Acts 20:17) and
instructing them and preparing them for the work that was instructed them to oversee the "church of God" as
to begin at Pentecost (Acts 1:1-3). Luke reveals in Acts 2 shepherds (Acts 20:28). Festus simply refers to the
the birth of the promised church as the first converts were disciples as "their own religion" when he explained the
"praising God and having favor with all the people. And case of Paul before Agrippa (Acts 25:19). The power of

The historian of Acts continues to reveal the character In the epistles we find many different descriptions of
and nature of these early followers of Christ as a the church. "To all who are in Rome, beloved of God,
"company" of people (Acts 4:23), and the "multitude of called to be saints" (Romans 1:7). Paul refers to the
those who believed" (Acts 4:32). Great fear came upon "church in Cenchrea ... church in their house ... whole
"all the church" when God took the lives of Ananias and church" and the "churches of Christ" (Romans
Sapphira (Acts 5:1-11). "Believers" are spoken of in Acts 16:1,5,23,16). "To the church of God which is at Corinth,

Travelers on Rose's Classic Tours are shown at the Castle in the Clouds, which is located at Moultomborough, New Hampshire.


By Rose Williamson
Rose's Classic Tours have returned
from the New England Fall Foliage
trip. The folks from 21 towns and
cities who enjoyed the vibrant col-
ors of the fall foliage were: Ray and
Patsy Avery, Bobbie Bishop, Bar-
bara Bullock, V.C. and Lottie Can-
non, Elizabeth Carter, Lynda Conner,
Martha Cook, Joyce Corley, Weeks
and Edith Deen, Edwin and Betty
Douglas, Joe and Marie Elder, Al and
Dot Gay, Mary Lou Hamby, Diane
Highsmith, Gail and Therese Jerrell,
Virgil and Lucy Locke, Kathy May-
hall, Kathleen McElroy, Imogele

rott, Karen Philman, Bill and Lillian
Porter, Clara Nell Quincey, Marsha
Rankin, Billy and Myrtle Roberts,
Henry and Eleanor Roberts, Shirley

lie Simpson, Doris Standridge, June
Townsend, Cheryl Watson, Carl and
Frances Williams, Rose Williamson,
Elsie Wilson, Sandra Withey, Flor-
ence Yarbrough, Bill Williamson, Es-
cort and Tommy Fletcher, Driver..
On day one, before leaving Bell,
Bill Williamson led the group in
prayer asking God for grace and pro-
tection for the day. Our first stop was
in Jacksonville at the Golden Corral
for breakfast. Needless to say, no
one left hungry. Lots of bus activities
were provided.between .our comfort
and meal breaks. We enjoyed our
evening meal at the K & W Cafete-
ria in Rocky Mount, North Carolina.
The Comfort Inn provided our lodg-
ing for the night.
On day two, to jump-start our day,
Melvin Mock offered up prayer for
our safety and thanked God for al-
lowing us to make this trip. The
group started our Sunday ,worship
by singing, Amazing Grace. Joe El-
der, our Honorary chaplain, gave an


interesting devotion on selecting a
suitable Christmas gift for the person
who has everything. With songbooks
in hands, our "57-member Choir on
Wheels" got down to some serious
singing. Edwin Douglas blessed our
hearts with his stories and-songs.
We traveled to George Washing-
ton's Mount Vernon located on the
Potomac River. If you covered his
entire estate, you were ready for that
comfortable seat on the motorcoach
when we left. Lots of changes were
made since we were there last, such
as a fast food court and a museum
were added.
Evening found us in Essirfgton,
Pennsylvania. Our dinner was at
the Philly Diner, a good place to eat.
They sure believed in enormous por-
tions of food. The Comfort Inn lo-
cated next door to the diner was our
resting place for the night.
On day three, Henry Roberts got
this day started off right with prayer.
We made our way to Liberty State
Park to board the Miss Freedom Fer-
ry to Ellis Island and then to Liberty
Island. More than 14 million immi-
grants were processed at Ellis Island,
who came seeking the American
dream. The Statue of Liberty is one
proud tall lady who welcomes folks
to our great county. She is the tallest
statue of modern times.
Hometown Buffet in Milford, Con-
necticut, was our destination for din-
ner. Our last stop for the day was
at the LaQuinta Inn in New Haven,
Connecticut.
On day four, before we started on
the road again, Billy Roberts prayed
that God would watch over us and
keep us safe. Early morning found us
at the nation's largest maritime mu-
seum, which covered 17 acres along
the Mystic River in Connecticut. It
was an interesting place to visit. We
left there with a better understanding
of life in a seaport town during the
1800s. The Greemanville Church
and Brant Point Lighthouse replica
within the village were favorites
among our group.
We arrived in Perkins Cove, Maine,
and ventured on a 7-mile cruise along
the coastline. We spotted seals, ducks,
lobster traps, the Nubble Lighthouse
and the most perfect rainbow which
reached across the whole sky. This
must have been the coldest boat ride
we Floridians had ever experienced.
Our dinner was at Barnacle Billy's
also located in Perkins cove. Yep,
you guessed it, had to try the famous
Maine lobster. Lodging for this night
was the Comfort Inn in Dover, New
Hampshire.
On day five, our day started with
prayer by Joe Elder thanking God for
His guidance thus far and asked for
His safety today on our group. We
traveled to a turn-of-the-20th century
mansion set amid the Ossipee Moun-
tains, "The Castle In The Clouds."
It had 126 rooms with 8 bathrooms.
Spectacular views of Lake Winni-
pesaukee and the surrounding area
could be seen from virtually every
room.
Rock of Ages Granite Quarries lo-
cated in Graniteville, Vermont, was
our next stop. The manufacturing
division is one of the largest granite
plants in the world. We were able to
overlook the cutting, polishing and
packing from their observation deck.
They only work 10 months out of the
year due to the cold climate. Our
folks left there with lots of souvenirs
from their gift shop.
By the time we reached our ac-
commodations at the Ramada Inn in
Brattleboro, Vermont, our beds were
greatly appreciated.
On day six, after a hot breakfast we
were all set for the day. V. C. Cannon
began our day with prayer and off we
went to the Yankee Candle Company
-in South Deerfield, Massachusetts.
What a place! It is the world's larg-
est candle store, but they also, had
bakery goods, coffee, soft drinks and
wonderful homemade fudge. We
couldn't resist.
On our way to Danbury, Connecti-
cut, the unexpected happened--rain,
sleet, and snow! The temperature
dropped to 22 degrees! What a shock
for us Florida folks. It took Myrtle
Roberts about an hour to convince


the rest of us it really was snowing.
Think she must have seen the very
first snowflake.
When we boarded the train at the
Danbury Railroad Museum, it was
coming down quite heavy, but melted
as soon as it hit the ground. Yep, still
snowing as we arrived at the )an-
bury Mall for dinner and some seri-
ous shopping. Instead of shopping,
Karen Philman elected to get her hair
done. What a neat idea.
Comfort Suites sure felt good and

Local Master Gardeners

celebrate anniversary


Celebrating the 30th Anniversary
of the UF/IFAS Florida Master Gar-
dener program, hundreds of Master
Gardeners convened in Ocala dur-
ing the annual training conference.
Events included a field trip and lec-
ture at the UF Horticulture Teaching
Unit, speakers Walter Reeves, author
and host of 'Your Southern Garden'
and Tom MacCubbin, radio, televi-
sion and newspaper columnist with
concurrent sessions on Green Indus-
tries Best Management Practices and
plant talks.
Getting reacquainted with friends
and meeting other horticulture enthu-
siasts made for a festive atmosphere.
The conference concluded with the
presentation of UF Extension Awards
of Excellence. Nature Coast Master
Gardeners competed against Duval,
Volusia and Seminole counties. The
winner was selected by UF specialists
and in an emotionally charged con-
test, Nature Coast Master Gardeners
harvested the Extension Awareness
Award. They were recognized for
their efforts and successes in engag-
ing and informing diverse clientele.
One-on-one interaction takes place
at speaking programs, meetings, area
festivals, Wal-Mart garden center
booth, IFAS Extension offices and
during Florida Yards & Neighbor-
hoods yard visits.
"The first tri-county Master Gar-
dener training program took place at
Fanning Springs, 2007" Drew says.
Participants received initial class-
room training under the auspicious
eye of Anthony Drew, Levy County
Extension Agent. In exchange for fif-
ty houis of training, attendees pledge


fifty hours volunteering in UF/IFAS
approved projects in Levy, Dixie and
Gilchrist counties.
"This is our third year with the
Master Gardener program and we're
certainly pleased to receive state
recognition" commented Anthony
Drew "but are even more proud of
our Master Gardeners. They are a
great group of individuals. They've
done a fine job as ambassadors for
UF and the Extension office." Drew
'says it would be appropriate to thank
staff and others who laid the founda-
tion in bringing this program to .the
tri-county area, Nikki Wilson, former
Program Assistant, Dalne Dola, and
Audrey Sharpe - we could not have
done it without them."
Back at the conference, doctors
Robert Black and Jim Stephens (UF
retired 2002 and. 2001 respectively)
delivered a heartfelt message of en-
couragement and thanks; acknowl-
edging and appreciating the expe-
rience, knowledge and skills that
Florida Master Gardeners utilize ih
service to residents. Since inception
in 1979, Master Gardeners have do-
nated 5.4 million hours of volunteer
time worth an estimated 83 million
dollars. Tom Wichman, UF State
Master Gardener Coordinator, added
that in 2008 alone, more than eight
hundred ninety-four thousand con-
tacts were made with horticulture-re-
lated questions. Wichman added that
fifty states have a Master Gardener
program with Puerto Rico, Guam and
Great Britian having similar interna-
tional programs.

Eighth grader triumphant

in BMS Spelling Bee


By: Ashley Jones
Bell Elementary School held its
annual spelling bee recently. Fourth
and fifth graders looked on as 16 of
their classmates participated. The
participants were the top two spell-
ers from contests held in each of the
fourth and fifth grade classrooms ear-
lier that week.
After 20 grueling rounds of com-
petition, the final word was "com-
petitive." It was with this word that
fourth grader Madison Hodge edged
past fifth grader Dillon Pauling for


the victory. How did she feel when it
was time for her to step up to the mi-
crophone? "I felt confident because I
knew that word. Before the spelling
bee, we'd learned that word in class."
After the win, Madison said, "I was
so happy. I really wanted to win. I
studied a lot!"
After the school level spelling
bee, BES winners Madison and Dil-
lon will compete at the district level
on November 19. The match will be
held at Trenton Elementary School.
Good luck Madison and Dillon!

The Trenton Tigers hosted the
Hamilton County Trojans in another
tough Class 1A District 5 football
contest on Friday night.
Both teams were hungry for their
first district win in.tliis� new seven-
team district in North Central Flori-
da.
The Trojans took the opening kick-
off and drove the distance for their
opening score of this game, taking a
7-0 lead.
The Tigers were never able to get
their offense unleashed and they sput-
tered without scoring throughout the
game. The Trojans took advantage of
the Tigers' misfortunes and scored

By Lisa Boutwell
Congratulations to our Drum Ma-
jors Alyssa Branning, Kristen Burke
and Band Captain Gabrielle Hunter
for being selected to attend the Tri
State Music Festival at Florida State
University from December 3 to the
6.
On Friday night the band hosted
members of 6th and 7th grade bands
in the stands for Middle School Band
Night. Both the marching band and
the middle school musicians had a
great time.
Thank you to the Martin and Phil-
lips families for feeding our band
a great meal before the game. Our
back drop scenery crew of Dermot
Burke, Stephen Cutts, James Griffith
and Kevin McPhearson either felt the
effects of a long marching season or
just felt the need to get down as our
scenery danced to the music on Fri-
day night.
We would like to thank all the
vendors who participated in our One
Stop Shop on Saturday. Thank you
to all the ladies who baked cakes
and pies for the Silent Auction, Tay-
lor Brake, Ray Ann Ferguson, Dena
Griffith, Peggy Sue Hilliard, Jo Ann
Jordan, Rhonda Thomas and Kathy
Wilwo. Thank you to our Chairper-
sons, Cathy Sites, Mary Stewart and
Karla Waldron for a job well done.
The final home football game is
November 13 and that means Senior
Night. This year the band has five
seniors, Alyssa Branning, Kristen'
Burke, Kayla Gurule, Kristina Richey
and Sarah Saffell. We appreciate all
the years you have given to band and
your leadership will be missed. .
It's basketball season and that
means it's time for band members
and parents to sign up for concession
shifts. The season begins November
20 and shifts are going fast, so con-
tact Dena Griffith to sign up.
The next booster meeting is sched-


uled for Thursday, November 19 in
the band room. Join us as we begin
planning the annual Dinner The-
ater scheduled for Friday, February
5. The students have already begun
working on their musical pieces and
play. This year's theme will be Mardi
Gras with a menu to compliment the
theme. We will have more news on

Bulldogs fall

short against

Branford
By Joel Elliott
The Bell Bulldogs took one under
the chin in the eighth game of their
rebuilding year, losing to the visit-
ing Branford Buccaneers 49-6 in
front of the home fans. The Bulldogs
couldn't handle the talented visitors,
with Branford's three pronged rush-
ing and passing attack of Kyle Cer-
tain, John Perry, and Trent Thompson
accounting for much of the Bucca-
neers' offensive output. To be fair,
the Bulldogs lost handily to a very
talented football team, as Branford
improved their record to 8-1. On the
other hand, Bell's record dropped to
2-6.
SThe Bulldogs got their lone touch-
.down of the night on a great play
from Garth Frier. The senior line-
backer stripped the ball from John
Perry and raced untouched for a sev-
enty-yard fumble return. The futility
continued on offense, and the Bull-
dogs only saw glimmers of consis-
tency in that department. The squad
made mistakes, but they would have
had to have played perfect to defeat
this clearly more talented team.
The one thing you can expect from
Coach Harden's team is that they
will always be working hard to im-
prove their mistakes. They match
up against Hawthorne this week at
home, and the game will start at 7:30
p.m. The Bulldogs lost a close match
up earlier in the preseason to the Hor-
nets, coming up short, 14-6. Haw-
thorne comes into the game sporting
a 9-0 record. Come out and see this
exciting contest.

The Native American Program
held last Thursday evening was
very in-
teresting.
The arti-
facts they
showed
were
close to
nature.
They
taught us
how a
deer hide was prepared for use in
making a drum. They emphasized
that we should never lose contact
with the people that were here
when our ancestors arrived.
One point .that was stressed was
that the American Indians did not
attempt to change the environment
but to adapt their lives to survive
in it.
The artifacts were most interest-
ing, a silver fox headpiece with
the tail still attached, drums made
from skins using all native materi-
als, hand made lances, and jew-
elry.
It was necessary to postpone
the Friday and Saturday programs
but these will be rescheduled at a
later date.
Remember, the mayor reads to
the children on the third Thursday
evening along with an artist who
works with arts and crafts.
Our next book sale is scheduled
for Detember 5. Mark your cal-
endars!

Quilt Museum.
It was a very busy day trying to go
through a truckload of quilts that need
to be finished. When someone gets
to the point that they can't do what

Homeschoolers tour local Alliance Dairy


Submitted
Friday, Nov 6, 2009, the Willis-
ton Homeschoolers visited the Alli-
ance Dairy located between Trenton
and Fanning Springs. Charlie Smith
hosted the tour and did a fantastic
job! The group had approximately 40
members show up eager to see how a
dairy operates.
The tour began with viewing the
barns. This dairy has about 4200
head of dairy cows. They are housed
in barns 24/7. They are milked three
times a day and look forward to be-
ing milked. The youth were allowed
in the milking parlor and watched as
the cows entered and automatically
turned their butts to the ally way,
as they knew the milking machine
would be attached at this point. The
youth were allowed to feel the milk-
ing machine and how it pulsates to
draw the milk into the holding tank.
The youth were then taken through
the area where the milk is received
and immediately cooled down to ap-
proximately 36 degrees in a matter of
seconds. Mr. Charlie explained the
quicker the milk is cooled, the fresher
it stays.
They have trucks on standby to fill
as the holding tanks get filled. On this
particular day, they had 5 trucks on
hand to be filled. The milk is taken to
another location where it is processed
and then shipped to the stores such as
Publix, Winn Dixie, etc ...
The youth saw the barns being
cleaned, fresh sand being put out
for the cows to lie in, and feed being
dropped for them to eat at their lei-
sure. They then went to see the area
where all the manure was processed
into compost. This was an interesting
area as the smell was very different
from the barn area.


They then went to see the feed and
how it is mixed special daily for these
cows. The farm grows a lot of the
feed. They do not use any chemicals
on the grasses or grains they grow.
The feed is a mixture of which a hu-
man could safely eat, but Mr. Charlie
told them it may not be exactly a taste
everyone would enjoy.
Both the youth and the adults
asked several interesting questions,
as everyone truly enjoyed this learn-
ing experience.
The highlight of the trip was when
everyone was able to touch and pet a
day-old calf.
They have ALL females, which the
youth learned are called HEIFERS
until they have their first calf, then
they are called COWS. The farm does
not sell any of their heifer calves, but
they do sell the bull calves. The heif-
ers help to replenish the herd, as these
cows life span is not very long.
The cows at this location may pro-
duce milk for about 6 years more or
less. Alliance Dairy also has another
dairy located between Chiefland and
Cedar Key named Southpoint Dairy
where the cows are on grass 24/7.
They are milked twice per day com-
pared to three times per day at this
location. Their life span for produc-
ing is a few additional years.
After the tour, the youth were
treated to none other than, MILK and
OREO and Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Mr. Charlie also gave out a coloring
book titled, "What's Up with Milk,"
plus several other little trinkets.
Alliance Dairy welcomes tour
groups and encourages the youth to
learn about 'Milk.' For more infor-
mation, please contact Charlie Smith
at Alliance Dairy - 352-463-6613.

Joyful Hearts Quilters and Crafters


By Marilyn Runde
Thank goodness it looks like sum-
mer has left the building. It's hard to
think about Thanksgiving and Christ-
mas when it's 90 degrees and your
scarecrow out in the yard is fanning
himself with his tattered hat.
SBut it is November...we've set
our clocks back, looked for our long
johns, and are beginning the Thanks-
giving and Christmas count dowrf.
Our Halloween Brunch on Wednes-
day, October 21, was a howling suc-
cess. Six of our gals dressed up and
what a hoot that was. We played
games, had door prizes and of course
ate 'til we nearly burst. The treat
was, it was all so good and too much
to mention each dish. The trick was,
how to eat it all and not put on ex-
tra pounds. Our "Somethin' To Crow
About" quilt is all but finished. Ev-
eryone is so excited about it and ev-
eryone wants to be the winner. Our
"Christmas Quilts for the Children"
project is nearly completed. We
have finished about 55 out of the 70
needed. Besides those two endeav-
ors everyone is busy getting gifts
finished and finishing up projects
started. Our Thanksgiving luncheon
will be on Wednesday, November 18.
I


Bring your favorite fall covered dish
or dessert. Also remember to bring
in items for our food basket. Diana is
making up a new calendar of events
which will include up-coming quilt
shows and road trips. You can call
Elaine if you have any questions.
We celebrated November birthdays
at our meeting. Heidi Kamp is still
in the hospital; it's been over three
months now. She needs cards, visi-
tors and especially our prayers. She
has been moved from North Florida
Regional to a facility named Celeste
Speciality in room 124 in Gaines-
ville. Also, Marvine Deer's husband
passed, after a long illness. I know
she will be in all of our thoughts and
prayers as she makes it'through this
transition.
All of us have situations within our
lives and the lives of our loved ones
that are stressful and troubling. One
of the many gifts we are blessed with
is....one another. What a comfort
to know there are people who care
about you and want to share in your
joys and your sorrows.
The Bible tells us to pray for one
another, to love one another and give
thanks to the Lord for all of our bless-
ings.


Kathleen Horton, Alice Verner and Arilla Sims were just three seniors
dressed up for Halloween on Oct. 30 while attending a wild Halloween
party at the Trenton Senior Center. Attendees dressed up in costumes
and enjoyed fellowship, tricks and treats.

Local sewing group makes fall pillows


Submitted
October was a fun month for Ayers
sewing group.
Each lady picked out the mate-
rial she liked for the background part
of her pillow cover and then took a
scarecrow pattern and cut out pieces
from fusible material to applique' on
her own special scarecrow.
It was interesting to see the char-


acters come to life. Picking out the
fall colors for the pumpkins was a
challenge with what they had to work
with.
All eight pillow covers turned out
cute and unique; of course, each resi-
dent was thrilled with her handiwork.
Pillows were for our ladies to cover
with their scarecrow.
Listening to chatter of conversa-


tions at each table made it obvious,
that all the ladies were enjoying just
being with each other.
Cotton material is always wel-
comed as donations for our sewing
group here at Ayers.
Thank you to those who have pro-
vided us with material.
Our residents appreciate all you do
for them.

and $492 million in sales for the same
period a year ago The company's
gross margin declined to 33.9 percent
from 35.3 percent a year ago.
Yes, the recession has taken a toll
on the company. However, my 12-
month target price on the shares a year
.ago was $35 and they recently closed
at $38.52. Furthermore, the compa-
ny's accounts receivable declined by
26.1 percent and net inventories fell
by 24.2 percent. Toro's solid cash
flow has meant continued dividend
payments and the repurchase of 1.6
million shares, with recent authoriza-
tion to repurchase another 5 million
shares.
The company's guidance is that
fiscal 2009 revenues will decrease
by about 18 percent when compared
with 2008, resulting in earnings for
the year of between $1.53 and $1.63
per share. Included in that estimate is
a one-time charge of $0.15 for reor-
ganization expenses.
Despite an operational perfor-
mance that is considerably less than
it was a year ago, the' company's
share price is on a steady upward
trend since hitting a nadir of $20
last March. A key reason is that the
economy is recovering. Furthermore,
grass knows no master. It continues
to grow regardless of economic con-
ditions, while the need for irrigation
continues worldwide and snow con-
tinues to fall. Toro has solutions for
all the above.
The intrinsic value of the shares
using a discounted earnings model is
$90, while the more conservative free
cash flow to the firm model produces
an intrinsic yalue of $95.
My 2009 earnings estimate is $1.67
per share and $2.05 for 2010. My
12-month price target on the shares
is $44 for a potential annual capital
gain of 15 percent. There is also divi-
dend yield of 1.60 percent, raising
that number to 16.6 percent.
Note to readers - I will be speak-
ing on Nov. 13 at 8:30 - 9:45 AM
in Orlando, FL at the AAII national
convention.
The talk is on using economic
models and intrinsic analysis to un-
cover investment opportunities.
If you are planning to attend the
convention, I invite you to join me
and pick-up a free commemorative
coffee mug.

nist Lauren Rudd at 5 Gulf Manor

Local FHP checkpoints for Dec.


The Florida Highway Patrol will
be conducting driver license and ve-
hicle inspection checkpoints during
daylight hours, during the following
dates: December 1-31, 2009. These
checkpoints will be held at the fol-
lowing locations in Gilchrist Coun-


ty: SR-26, SR-49, SR-47, CR-138,
SE 70th Ave., CR-232, CR-340, and
CR-341. The Florida Highway Patrol
has found these checkpoints to be an
effective method of enforcing state
laws, which relate to the safe and le-
gal operation of motor vehicles.

warm inside when we checked in for
the night.
On day seven, it was time to leave
the New England States behind and
head for the good ole south. Before
leaving the parking lot, Weeks Deen
offered up prayer thanking God for
the many, many blessings on each
and everyone and to keep us safe this
*day.
We by-passed New York City on
our return back home as we decided
once was enough. Aloig with our
regular bus activities, Joe Elder re-
cited the story of the "Old Violin."
Edwin Douglas quoted parts of his
book he wrote entitled "Precious
Memories," which you can find in the
library in Williston.
Suppertime found us back in Rocky
Mount, North Carolina, at the Golden
Corral for steak and shrimp with all
the trimmings. Our lodging for our
last night out was at the Quality Inn.
On day eight, as usual, we started
our day with prayer. Bill Williamson
thanked God for being so good to our


group for allowing us to visit this part
of our lovely country. Then it was all
the way back to Bell.
SWhat a great group of folks. We
thanked them for their cooperation
and consideration for each other.
Our very first stop on this tour, it was
noted that our group was different; a
"Christian atmosphere" will surely
show. A big "thank you" from our
group went to Bill and Tommy for
their efforts to make this an enjoyable
tour. Raymon Land, of the Fabulous
Coach Lines, provided us with a top-
of-the line motorcoach. His driver,
Tommy Fletcher, represented your
company well.
Our next tour will be October 2,
2010 to take in Mobile, Alabama,
Vicksburg, Mississippi, Eureka
Springs, Arkansas, Branson, Mis-
souri and possibly St. Louis.
We are now receiving deposits on
this tour.
If you are seeking a Christian group
to travel with,'we invite you to travel
with us.
