until an interim police chief can be
named.
Brown indicated that he had noti-
fied the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, and the State Attor-
ney's Office that a change in admin-
istration had been made within the
city's police department.
"The Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office will provide supplemental law
enforcement coverage within the City
of Trenton, while a search" for a new
police chief is conducted," Brown
stated in a press release on Monday.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement has been called in to as-
sist in conducting an inventory of all
evidence being held by the Trenton
Police Department since the investi-
gation revealed that Chief Smith had
mishandled evidence.
Brown explained that the Gilchrist

policies and procedures for the prop-

There were no students on the bus
at the time of the wreck. The bus
driver, Susan Wells, had just finished
delivering all the students and was on
her way home when the accident oc-
curred.
"We were extremely fortunate that
no one was injured as part of this
accident," said Superintendent Don
Thomas.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, Donald Carr was driving
a 1987 Oldsmobile Cutlass west on
NE 30th Street just after 4 p.m. last
Wednesday when he ran into the back
of Bus 36, which was stopped at a
stop sign on NE 30th Street at State
Road 47.
Carr reportedly told Trooper T.O.
Strickland of the Florida Highway
Patrol that NE 30th Street, which is a
dirt road, was very dry and dusty and
when the dust started to settle the bus
appeared stopped in front of him.
Wells, 54, of Bell, was driving Bus
36 at the time of the accident and re-
portedly told investigators that she
felt a bump and when the dust cleared
from the road she saw the car behind
her had hit the bus.
At press time, Carr was being
held at the Gilchrist County Jail on a
$1,500 bond.

Local veteran left family farm



to serve in World War II


HB Carrie A. Mizcll
before .'-i dhiaetcd to scrve in
World War 11, John Thomas (J. L.)
Beck had never left his family farm
in Gilchrist County, except for a few
trips to Gainesville.
The year was 1943. and Beck was
a 19-year-old newlywed when he an-
swered ai call to duty. In service to his
country. Beck traveled first to Penn-
sylvania, and then to Virginia before
completing 12 weeks of basic train-
ing in Texas. Once that was com-
pleted, he boarded a ship bound for
Casablanca, Africa. where he spent
numerous months serving his coun-
try in a war for America's freedom.
"I knew I had to go and I was ready
and willing." Beck said. "If I would
have known how long I was going to
be over there. I might not have been
quite so willing."
At 87, Beck lives today on the
land where he was bomr. The son of
Joshua Liman and Sarah Elizabeth
Beck, J.T. was the youngest of nine
children born on the family farm
south of Trenton. Beck's daddy died
when he was just 4 years old, and his
momma, who suffered from physical
disabilities after being in a house fire
as a child, washed clothes for other
people and hoed crops to make mon-
ey to support her family.
"My mother was not equal to her,
but I would put her next to Christ's
mother," Beck said, as his eyes filled
with tears. "She did what she had to
do for us."
Beck walked to and from Tren-
ton schools, up until he graduated in
1942. After completing high school,
he worked on his family's farm
growing corn and peanuts before he
was 'drafted into the Army on Febru-
ary 23, 1943.
On Independence Day in 1941.
J.T. met the love of his life, Dorothy
Doke, at Fanning Springs where they
walked tlt-'erlici over the Suwan-
nee River Bridge hand in hand. On
December 5, 1942, the two married
and started their life together. At the
time, they had no idea that in just two


months. J I .oulld b draMted and
I I imE' hi-ls timil h eaid the only place
he'd c ei t I *.' I 'oeiC.
Dorothy stayed with J.T.'s mother
while he was overseas and welcomed
their first child, a daughter she named
Thelma. It was almost two years be-
fore J.'. returned home after World
War 11 and met his lirst of tour chil-
dren.
While in the Army, Beck worked
in a replacement depot. which 'was
a inilitary unit containing reserves
for troops on the front-line. Beck's
brother Eugene served on the front-
line and one night while in Casablan-
ca, Beck recalls his brother coming
to see him and what a welcome sight
family was so far from home.
While in Italy. Beck came into
contact with Wilbur Smith, a class-
mate from Trenton, and the two men
shared memories of their hometown.
Sadly. Smith was killed in action the
very next day.
"1 never saw the battlefields, but I
can remember seeing planes flying
over our heads with their motors shot
off." Beck said. "I saw so many things
happen: I know it was God's blessing
that brought me home safely."
Once World War I1 ended and
Beck's tour of duty was over, he re-
lurned to tile United States ready to
live out his days in Gilchrist County.
"Seeing all those places all ov er
the world made me thankful and
proud to be an American." Beck
said. "I was fixing to have to go to
Japan when thle second atomic bomb
was dropped which ended thile war. I
know there are people who think that
second bomb should not have been
dropped, but I think it saved a lot of
our boys' lives."
Beck farmed for several years after
returning home from the war, before
joining a plumbers and pipe litters
union where he worked up until his
retirement in the 1980s.
J.T. and Dorothy Beck continue to
live on his family's farmland south
of Trenton. They have four children,

I I LIL M A N l11NA M-\ Ll J---N- --e-'--Itt---


Streetwise
By Laurco Rudd


Although the recent election is
viewed by many as a wake-up call
for a change in policy and leader-
ship. let's remember that the Great
Recession was an inevitable result of
banks and other financial institutions
irrationally gambling away billions
of dollars of other people's money.
They then came to Uncle Sam (you
and me), hat in hand, begging for as-
sistance.
Enabling the aforementioned car-
nage was the systematic dismantling
by Congress of the regulations en-
acted years ago to prevent a reoccur-
rence of the abuse by Wall Street that
led to the Great Depression. What is
lost sight of is that the dismantling
occurred well before the current Ad-
ministration.
However, that was not the sole rea-
son for the ongoing economic dislo-
cation. Years of continuing military
conflicts, funded by unadulterated
deficit spending, combined with a tax
reduction program that was heavily
weighted towards the wealthiest five
percent of the nation, rang the death
knell for anything approaching fiscal
responsibility.
Furthermore, believing that the ul-
tra-wealthy play a significant role in
job creation and that by reducing their
taxes you will reduce unemployment
goes beyond voodoo economics and
well into the realm of ignorance.
Nonetheless, was it not reasonable
to expect Congress to act rationally
and with due haste to repair the dam-
age of its shortsightedness? Regret-
fully, such expectations were naive
and in error.
Instead of buckling down and try-
ing to get the economy back on track
with the necessary safeguards rein-
stated, Congress acted in a manner
that was a cross between the high
jinxes of intoxicated college students
and the irascible feud between the
Hatfields and McCoys.
In return, an angry electorate let
its voice be known. Based on quotes
from voters around the country, they
did not really care who won, as long
as it was not the people already in of-
fice. Unfortunately, the cure has ev-
ery indication of being as bad as or
worse than the disease.
A political agenda from the past,
now additionally tainted by an out-
pouring of money from both large
corporations and their lobbyists, has
once again found residence within
the House of Representatives and is
knocking on the door of the Senate,
not to mention the governor's man-
sion in a number of states.
As many have drawn on the Scrip-
tures during the campaign for justifi-
cation of a position taken, let me of-


"









fer up some words from Luke 23:34,
"Forgive them; they know not whal
they do."
My home state of Florida is an ex-
cellent example of voter angst. Swept
into office is a veto proof Republican
majority in the State legislature and
a Tea Party governor. Suddenly there
is nothing to hinder the legislature's
previously stymied efforts to imple-
ment Arizona-like immigration laws',
to end teacher tenure and reduce
funding for education, severely re
strict abortion, remove growth llman
agement and environmental controls,
eliminate regulation of the insurance
industry and abolish corporate taxes.
On a national level, Mitch NMcCo
nnell, the senior Republican senator
from Kentucky, (assisted by newly
elected Kentucky Tea Party senator
Rand Paul) has been quoted repeat-
edly as to what he believes is the
most important task facing the Re-
publican Party and the Senate over
the next two years. Is it jobs. or the
deficit, or the national debt? No. the
highest priority is an all-out effort
to ensure President Obama is a one-
term president.
So how does all this affect you
.the individual investor? Could it be
that now is the time to hunker dow n'
Absolutely not. Wall Street will love
what is taking place, particularly with
regard to the proposed emasculation
of the recently passed Dodd-Fraink
financial reform bill.
Corporations in turn realize that a
multitude of regulations will either
be weakened or simply not enforced.
leading to increased profits at the
expense of the environment and the
labor force. We have not even dis-
cussed the likely upsurge on Wall
Street resulting from the Federal Re-
serve's commitment to buy up $60()
billion in government bonds. And so
the music plays on.

The 74 of 24
(Kent I leaton)


Neither the fury of Mt. St. I elen's nor the power of(
Krakatoa, Vesuvius and Mt. Tambora combined would
challenge the fury of events surrounding Mt. Sinai in the
days Moses and the children of Israel camped at its base.
"Now Mount Sinai was completely in smoke, because the
LORD descended upon it in fire. Its smoke ascended like
the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked
greatly. And when the blast of the trumpet sounded long
and became louder and louder, Moses spoke, and God
answered him by voice" (Exodus 19:18-19). The Ilebrew
writer expressed the terror of the mountain as one that
"burned with fire, and to blackness and darkness and
tempest, and the sound of a trumpet and the voice of words,
so that those who heard it begged that the word should not
be spoken to them anymore. For they could not endure what
was commanded: "and if so much as a beast touches the
mountain, it shall be stoned or shot with an arrow"
(Hebrews 12:18-20).
Unimaginable fright would have been the scene before
the people. Terror filled their hearts and great fear ;at tihe
presence of the Lord God on the mountain. Who could stand
in such a place? Who would dare draw nigh to such a
furious cauldron of fire, smoke, lightening and thunder'? InI
Exodus 24 Moses records the ascent of 74 men who made
the journey onto the mountain. The Lord said to Moses,
"Come up to the Lord, you and Aaron, Nadab and Abihu,
and seventy of the elders of Israel, and worship from afar"
(Exodus 24:1).
Seventy-four men began a journey to define ;a
relationship with the Creator. They "saw the God of Israel.
And there was under His feet as it were a paved work of
sapphire stone, and it was like the very heavens in its

The story says a teacher removed
all desks and chairs from her class-
room at the beginning of' the school
year. When first period students
came in, the teacher asked why they
deserved to have desks and chairs.
Some guessed because their parents
paid taxes. Others said just because
they were Americans.
As classes changed throughout the
day, none of the children guessed cor
rectly why they deserved chairs and
desks in their classroom. Finally, at
the end of the day, the last group ofl
students entered and sat on the floor.
They had heard all the guesses and
were wondering when they would
learn the correct answer.
At that point the teacher opened
the door and let 24 veterans in full
dress uniforms bring in desks and
chairs for the children. After tlie
children were seated, the teacher
said, "These veterans and thousands
like them paid thle price so you
could have desks and chairs in our
classroom.
During h this month of thanksgiv
iiig including tlie day we honor our
veterans, we should remember ithe
sacrifices made by men, womenn,
and families so we could have the
rights, privileges, and freedoms we
share as Americans.
No one wants war, and no one
should glorify war. But, we should
honor our veterans who have an-
swered our nation's call to defend
freedom.
In Afghanistan and Iraq we have
lost around 1,300 and 4,500 veterans
respectively since those wars began.
'Fens of thousands more have come
home with debilitating injuries. All
have paid a precious price.
In the twentieth century over a 56-
year period we lost 619,107 veter-
ans in World War 1 ( 1 6,708). World

ns Day


War 11 (407,316), Korea (36,I14),
and Vietlnam (58,169).
On ('BS's Sunday Morning pro-
gram, Ben Stein observed he had
not heard a single candidate refer
to the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq,
and rightly called on Americans to
renmemnlber olur troops who continue
to fight in those wars, as well as
veterans who are serving antd have
served elsewhere.
'loo often we get caught up ill onur
own little problems without taking
time to give thanks for those who
have given so much so we can live
free.
- ()i.e of my International friends
thoughtfully remarked last week that
an American could stand in froni of
the White I house and criticize ourt
president witllout any repercussion.
Then she said iin her country such a
person who criticized her govern-
menct could be imprisoned or shot.
Sometimes we need to be re-
innded we live in the freest nation
on earth. Our military is set up to
defend our freIedhoms, no t to protect
our governlnent frolnmcriticism.
)During this month of Thanksgiv-
ing. thank a veteran, thank his or her
family, and think of the price that
has been pIaid by so many for free-
ldons we continue to enjoy.
God has truly blessed America
richly with many resources, per-
haps the greatest being our men and
women in service who have given
so much so we can have chairs and
desks in every classroom and so
much more.

After looking' at lthe calendar, I just
realized that I only have two columns
()f Just Southern before T'hanksgiv-
iiil,
ing.
In the South we do love a sweet po-
at o; in lact, my husband would much
rather have a baked sweet potato than
a white potato anytime of year. It's a
fact that most of us, who still tie on
an apron to make a Thanksgiving
meal, would not do so without plac-
ing a dish of cornbread dressing or a
platter of sweet potatoes on our holi-
day table.
This holiday celebrates my favor-
ite subject "food" like no other.
This is the one holiday each year
that we take the time to celebrate all
the bountiful food and blessings we
enjoy in this country.
Speaking of our country and thank-
fulness, let me take a moment to thank
all our veterans who have served our
country for nearly 250 years.
You should be proud because with-
out you there would be no United
States of America today.
Also. I still have two uncles alive
who served our country in World War
11. Uncle Byrd and Uncle Hob. I am
very thankful for you both.
NMy UIncles David and Vance have
Cionle ron to be with the Lord, but I
never forget them on Veterans Day.
Recently 1 ran across the father
of our country and first president's
Iihank,,gi\inig Proclamation. I found
that IrPesident George Washington's
words still moved me even today.
"'I do recolnmmend and assign Thurs-
d;\. the Twenty-sixth day of Novem-

4 medium sweet potatoes
3 tablesp())ons butter, melted
/ cup crushed pineapple, drained
2 tablespoons pineapple juice
I 2 cups marshmallows
1 teaspoon season salt or salt and
pepper to taste
Topping
3 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
2 tablespoon cold butter
Zest of one lemon
Wash sweet potatoes, trim off ends
and dry with paper towel. Rub cook-
ing oil on sweet potatoes and place in
pan and bake at 375 degrees for 45
to 60 minutes. Potatoes need to be
soft but still firm enough to hold their
shape when inside pulp is removed.
Let potatoes cool and then cut in half.
Next remove the center, scooping po-
tato pulp into a mixing bowl. Leave
about 14 inch of potato in place in
the shell to help the potato keep its
cup shape. Add the butter, pineapple.
pineapple juice, and seasoning salt to
bowl with potato pulp. Mix together
using a spoon. If you mix the filling
well. it will become very smooth,
almost like you have beaten it with
a mixer. Fold in the marshmallows
and spoon filling back into the potato
shells which are in a baking pan.
To make the topping, work cold
butter into flour, sugar and zest with
fork or fingers, then sprinkle on top
of the potatoes. At this point you
can leave the potatoes on the coun-
ter until you are ready to bake them
just before serving. If you make this
recipe the day before, you can place
the potatoes in refrigerator at this
point and chill overnight. If you chill
overnight. be sure to set them out in
time for them to become room tem-
perature before baking. Bake at 375
for 15 minutes or until all thie mnarsh-
malllow\ in the filling melts. You can
see the mlarshmiallow, in thi e tilling.
so it's eas\ to see when thie\ hliave
irelted. I i' s recipe serves S.
Note: Buy an S-ounce can of
crushed pineapple packed in pine-
apple juice for this recipe. It is also
\ery helpful if all the sweet potatoes
are close to tie same size.

Jeart Matters
By Angie Land


"One day Naomi's mother-in-law
said to her, 'My daughter, should I
not try to find a home for you, where
you will be well provided for? Is not
Boaz, with whose servant girl you
have been, a kinsman of ours? To-
night he will be winnowing barley
on the threshing floor. Wash and per-
fiane yourself and put on your best
clothes. Then go down to the thresh-
ing floor; but don't let him know you
are there until he has finished eating
and drinking. When he lies down,
note the place where he is lying. Then
go and uncover his feet and lie down.
He will tell you what to do.' 'I will do
whatever you say, 'Ruth answered. So
she went down to the threshing floor
and did everything her mother-in-law
told her to do." (Ruth 3:1-6)
1 can't wait to jump into our story
today...so much of the Old Testa-
ment that may seem confusing at first
glance, comes alive when we view
it from the perspective of Hebrew
culture! For example, it is not likely
that many of your neighbors have a
threshing floor in their backyard, so
let me offer a little explanation. We
remember that Ruth and Naomi ar-
rived in Bethlehem as the barley har-
vest was beginning, and now a few
months have passed and it is time to
"winnow" or scatter the barley. The
threshing floor, usually made of rock
and located on top of a hill outside
the village, was the place where the
grain was separated from the harvest-
ed wheat. The stalks were crushed
either by hand or'by oxen and thrown
into the air where the wind would
blow away the lighter chaff and the
valuable and heavier grain would fall
back onto the rock floor to be easily
gathered. Boaz would likely have
spent the night at the threshing floor

for two reasons: to prevent theft, and
to wait for his turn to use the thresh-
ing floor.
Now that we have a mental picture
of our scenery, what in the world was
Naomi instructing Ruth to do'? From
our modern cultural perspective, all
the factors seem to point to seduc-
tion! Even after we have thoroughly
examined the integrity of both Ruth
and Boaz, we still find it hard to
imagine that anything else is about
to take place. After' all, seduction
sells...everything from butter to tires
on our TV commercials, and if Ruth
were trying to catch Boaz's eye...this
would be the way, right? Not so fast!
Naomi's instruction to Ruth to "wash
and perfume yourself and put on your
best clothes..." implies more than
meets the eye.
In 2 Samuel 12:20, the Bible re-
cords King David ending his time
of mourning over the death of his
son: "After he had washed, put on
lotions and changed his clothes..."
This is the exact terminology we find
in Naomi's instructions to Ruth. The
advice was simply to end her time of
mourning over the death of her hus-
band and to let that be known to Boaz.
Nothing seductive...in fact, the origi-
nal Hebrew translation of putting on
her "best clothes," was more closely
translated to put on her "outer gar-
ment." So instead of revealing more,
she advised her to cover up...there's
a new idea!
Also, note that it was common
practice for a servant to lie at the feet
of his master and even to share a part
of his covering...and remember those
winds that blew the chaff away'? As
they blew across his uncovered feet,
they would be instrumental in waking


a very tired Boaz from his sleep, so
that Ruth could accomplish her mis-
sion. As cooler weather approaches,
you might want to try this strategy
if you have a hard-to-wake child or
spouse!
"I will do whatever you say," is
such a rare phrase...l mean when is
the last time your teenager respond-
ed to your instructions like this? As
a Moabite foreigner, surely Ruth
thought that Naomi's advice was a
bit weird, but she followed it to the
letter because she trusted Naomi to
have her best interest in mind. Ruth
benefited tremendously because of
Naomi's wisdom, and we, in turn,
could all learn a huge lesson from
Ruth ...to be willing to listen to the
advice of those who have walked
with God longer and are the wiser for
it. Their experience and knowledge
is priceless and our lives will be the
richer for it...

Hamilton County
defeats Trenton to
advance to playoffs
By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers were stunned
Friday night as the Hamilton County
Trojans dealt the Tigers a loss that
ended their state playoff hopes. The
host defeated the Tigers 42-0 to re-
main in the top slot of District 5 in
Class IA.
"Hamilton County really came to
play Friday night; they are a great
team and no doubt the best team in
District 5- A. My hat is off to Coach
Mike Pittman and his staff. They
have done a great job with this team
and they may make some noise in the
Class IA state playoffs," explained
Trenton head coach Chris Baker.
Trenton was never able to get on
track Friday night. "1 was very dis-
appointed in the team effort Friday
night. We played very poorly and I
feel like we just were not ready for
the challenge," Coach Baker ex-
plained. "I felt this was the first game
this year that our tean did not show
tle heart and determination that we
have all season; hopefully we can
learn from this loss, have a great
week of practice alnd get ready for P.
K. Yonge Friday night.
The Tigers allowed the Trojans to
score in the first period and with a 2
point conversion took an 8-0 lead by
the beginning of the second period.
Hamilton County turned it on in the
second quarter scoring 20 points to
take a 28-0 lead at intermission. The
host scored 8 points in the third pe-
riod and a touchdown in the final pe-
riod to take the 42-0 victory and the
District crown.
The Tigers' Stephen Smith com-
pleted 3 of 9 passes for 40 yards and
1 interception. Senior running back
Tyler Brown rushed for 87 yards on
15 carries, and teammate Brandon
Stone had 15 carries for 82 yards
respectively. Senior linebacker Cor-
byn Pugh with 8 total tackles led
the Tigers' defense. Teammates Ca-
leb Smith, T.J. Calkins, and Chance
Brooks contributed with 5 tackles
each for the Tigers.
Trenton will host P.K. Yonge Fri-
day night in what will be the final
fttoolball game of the season for the
Tigers. "This Friday will be a very
bie night in Trenton. It will be Senior
Night, where we will honor a tremen-
dous group of guys that have really
lifted Trenton football up this season.
On top of that, we will be honoring
two other groups that evening. Tren-
ton Flmentarv School students will
be honored at thle game by forming at
the pregame luninel for our players to

On Friday, October 29. the Bell
Elementary campus came to life with
music, laughter and fun for all.
It was the PTA's annual Fall Fes-
tival and if you were not there, you
missed a good time.
During the day. as we set up booths
and decorated our campus, we asked
ourselves, "Will it come together?"
Thanks to the hard work of our PTA
officers and volunteers, which in-
cluded the president's and vice presi-
dent's husbands, we made it happen.

bright future. She provided several
delightful door prizes. Members do-

BHS JROTC take home the trophies


Submitted
The Bell JROTC traveled to Willis-
ton on a recent Saturday for their first
competition of the year. Competing
against six other JROTC programs,
the cadets, many of them competing
for the first time, performed excep-
tionally well. Although they all were
very nervous and excited, once the
competition started, they performed
as they had practiced. The Color
Guard, Individual Exhibition, and
the four drill teams placed in every
event. The Armed Squad took home
a first place trophy, with the Color
Guard and LET 1 Unarmed Squad
finishing second in their competi-
tions, and the Armed Platoon and In-
dividual Exhibition competitor, Jocy
Cross earned third place finishes.
One of the judges remarked that the
LET 1 Drill TIeam were "beasts" after
they completed their drill sequence.
All of the Bell Hligh School JROTC
supporters were very proud of their
IpK'rornmances and conduct during the
drill meet.

Springhouse Quilters have been
busy this year trying to complete all
of those unfinished projects that get
started but seem to never get fin-
ished. One quick project for 2010
was a Hoffman Fabric Challenge that
was presented to the membership. A
selected piece of fabric was given to
each participant and they were in-
structed to create any size, any pat-
tern project as long as the selected
piece of fabric was recognizable after
the item was finished. A very small
piece of fabric was provided to each
participant. It was amazing to see
how large some of the items became
using the selected emphasis fabric.
Each year, Springhouse members
select a community project to help
a group in need. For 2010, receiv-
ing blankets have been made and
provided to an agency that receives
children without homes. These chil-

day as several of the quilters are be-
ginning to put up quilts for the show.
There is much to be done and it takes
time. First, we have our Thanksgiv-
ing Dinner on November 18 and after
that we can finish and get ready for
the show on November 26 Decem-
ber 5. Then it's time to get ready for
the State Fair in Tampa.
We are having many things brought
in and if you have anything to display
or sell, bring it out. We will try to
find room for it.
Johnny and six men were out Fri-
day. They took down quilts and


put new ones up. There are always
things to be done here and they get
it all done and we appreciate every-
thing they do. Thanks, Lancaster.
A man from Crystal River brought
in a quilt his mother had made in
the 50s. He had it cleaned and all
the cotton they used inside is now
in a ball. Be careful when a quilt
is washed; sometimes it's better to
leave them alone.
Lunch was enjoyed with fried
chicken, chicken and rice, slaw,
brown rice, chicken casserole,
brownies, more brownies, chocolate
pudding, lemon cake and so much
more.

John Myers, Nature Coast Master
Gardener, was presented with Flor-
ida State Outstanding Master Gar-
dener Award. To quote Mr. Myers
upon receiving this recognition, "It
was a great honor but I feel all Mas-
ter Gardeners should be recognized
for the volunteer work they do. It's
amazing to me that people don't re-
alize what Master Gardeners do to
help the environment with efficient
watering and correct fertilizer use.
We're all volunteers, nobody gets
'paid' so it's not like we do it for
monetary gain but to improve our
communities. There are so many
Nature Coast Master Gardeners
who do so much and I want to thank
them."
This is a win for our Nature
Coast Master Gardeners, repre-
senting Levy, Dixie and Gilchrist
counties, but a greater win for the
communities that benefit from
the excellent work and expertise
of volunteers like John Myers.
The Nature Coast Master Garden-
ers are always in search of men and
women with an interest in this wor-
thy volunteer organization. Applica-
tions for the 2011 Master Gardener
training class are available online
from our website, www.ncmgfl.org
Applications may picked up in
person at the Levy County Exten-


drinks and vendors. Admission/car-
load is $5. The farm is located on
SR 26 (Newberry Rd), 4 miles east
of Newberry and seven miles west of
1-75 exit 287.
For more information, phone 352-

Gilchrist County

Sheriff Daniel Slaughter

Weekly Sheriff's Report

WEEK ENDING: November 8,2010


Volunteers needed for
Great Suwannee River
Clean-up
Submitted
Friends and neighbors of the Su-
wannee River have been gathering
in and on the historic river since
September for the Great Suwannee
River Clean-up. "From Georgia to
the Gulf" is the rally cry from Fritzi
Olson of Current Problems, a river-
conservation non-profit serving north
central Florida. It is nearly time for
the clean-up along the last twenty
miles which cuts the 530(X0-acre
Lower Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge in half.
So far the Great Suwannee River
Clean-up has collected 17,385 pounds
of litter and pollutants in the 266 mile
river that runs from the Okefenokee
National Wildlife Refuge through the
Lower Suwannee National Wildlife
Refuge to the Gulf.
In the past weeks Capt. Honk and
his crew were out on the water; An-
nette and John Long and fellow cave
divers pulled trash and treasures from
Fanning Springs. Daniel Bryant of
Old Town has been working his part
of the river frequently with family
and friends. On December 4, the last
section of the Great Suwannee River
Clean-up will need volunteer assis-
tance from the Tri-County area.
"Pretty amazing what a bunch of
volunteers can accomplish, isn't it?
Everyone deserves a big pat on the
back, and a huge thank-you," cheet
Fritzi after months of work.
December 4 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m..
volunteers will give back to the River
that brings so much to our commu-
nities. Garbage bags, litter grabbers,
boat flags, and a great t-shirt will be
supplied for the volunteers. Boat-
crs, paddlers, and folks that can lend
a hand can sign-up to volunteer by
calling the Refuge Rangerat 352/493-
0238, extension 223.

Inve'stigators from the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office rushed to this Bell business last week after it
was robbed.

Bell store robbed; clerks tied up

By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office investigators are currently looking tor three HIispanic Inen who tied up two
store clerks and robbed the store of cash last Thursday shortly afternoon.
Deputies responded to Mi Gaudalupana, a downtown business just across the street from Akins Barbecue, at
12:45 p.m. after receiving a 911 call of armed robbery.
The store clerk called 911 and later told investigators that she and another person inside the store had been tied
up with a cord by three Hispanic men who entered the store, carrying handguns and demanding cash. The men
stole an undetermined amount of money from the clerks and the business.
Ater committing the robbery, the men left the store and escaped before deputies arrived on scene.
The investigation is ongoing and anyone with information about the crime is asked to call Investigator Ron
Boyd at 4-ir 3410.


Bell woman

arrested for

her role in

Rx drug sell


CIt'itti Bell


By Carrie A. Mizell
Just two weeks after her husband
and stepson were arrested for selling
prescription drugs, a Bell woman has
now been arrested for her role in the
dnru transaction.
Christina L. Bell, 46, was arrested
on November 2 and charged with
Sale and Delivery of a Controlled
Substance and Conspiracy.
On October 20 Bell's husband Eu-
gene Wayne Shiflett, 46. and stepson
Carrol Matthew Shiflett, 23. were
arrested and charged with the sale
of controlled substances Oxycodone
and Alprazolam tablets.
The two men were arrested on NW
20th Street in Bell after selling the
prescription drugs to an undercover
police officer.
Like her husband and stepson. Bell
is now being held in the Gilchrist
County Jail on a $30,000 bond.


Local man

injured after

hitting a deer

on motorcycle

S By John M. Ayers
A Bell man was traveling west on
CR 232 Sunday evening on his 2004
Harley Davidson motorcycle around
6:30 p.m.
As the daylight had turned to dusk,
a yearling deer crossed the highway
into the path of the motorcycle. The
driver was unable to miss the animal,
and the crash left the driver of the
bike with multiple fractures in his leg
and possible injuries to his ribs.
SFlorida Highway Patrol Trooper
Scott Martin reported the driver did
have a helmet strapped to the bike
but was not wearing it at the time of
the accident. The motorcycle was re-
ported to have sustained an estimated
$ 1,500 in damages. The driver of the
cycle was not charged in connection
with this accident.

Springs to hold a forum
By Carol Lippincott
Everyone is welcome to the spe-
cial joint ineeting of the Fanning and
Manatee Springs Working Group and
the Santa Fe Springs Working Group
on Thursday, November 18 at the
Fanning Springs City Hall from 9:30
a.m. to 4 p.m. This is an open forum
where tle community ca learn from
each other and from experts.


By: Bobby Brito
Last Wednesday in conjunction
with Florida Gateway College's
Student government, the Bell High
School Student Government worked
to raise awareness about texting and
driving.
The Student Government officers
passed out pledges for students to
sign. which say "I will not text and
drive."
To help raise awareness of the dan-
gers of texting and driving, students
were informed that you are 23.2
times more likely to get into a crash
while texting and driving than if you


are undistracted while driving.
There are currently laws in states
across the country banning texting
while driving. Unfortunately, Florida
does not have one of these laws.
While this may be the case, you can
still do your part to help, by pledging
to not text while drive.

When the :.piIl hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said they would try to make
this right. But how was an energy company going to help a fisherman?


Putting People to Work
The first lhilrin. they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the cleanup. They made
up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they worked with all kinds of people here from
fishermen and shrimpers to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open.
And it helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.


Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all relieved. But would BP
stick around? Well, they did. The beaches are clean and we're back on the water fishing so
things are getting a whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep working
for as long as it takes.


Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you still need help, please
( -ill 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're wondering what you can do, well the next
time you're I, i.'r.r iin buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.


For assistance, please call:

To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
