Two Lancaster Correctional officers face criminal charges


The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) announced on
Tuesday the arrest of James Barry,
41, of Bell, and Michael Devanie. 44,
of Trenton, after a six month investi-
gation by FDLE and the Florida De-
partment of Corrections.
Devanie and Barry were correc-
tional officers at Lancaster Correc-


tional Institute.
The charges are a result of an in-
vestigation into an incident that oc-
cured May 24. 2010 at Lancaster
during which an inmate collapsed
while participating in a prison exer-
cise program. Following the incident,
Department of Corrections Secretary
Walter McNeil informed the media


and promised a full investigation
into the matter. Barry and Devanie
were placed on administrative leave
pending conclusion of the investiga-
tion.
The investigation found that Barry
and Devanie directed the inmate to do
strenuous exercise in the sand in the
heat and failed to provide adequate


water breaks. The investigation also
found that the officers refused the in-
mate's request for medical assistance
and then after the inmate collapsed.
failed to promptly summon medical
personnel. Barry directed other in-
mates who witnessed the incident to
provide inaccurate accounts of what
transpired to investigators.


"I will not tolerate this unlawful
behavior and both individuals are
being terminated." said Department
of Corrections Secretary Walter Mc-
Neil.
Barry and Devanie turned them-
selves in to the Gilchrist County Jail.
Both were charged with one count of
malicious battery, or cruel or inhu-


man treatment upon an inmate caus-
ing great bodily harm, a third degree
felony. Barry was also charged with
one count of witness tampering, a
second degree felony.
The Office of the State Attorney,
Eighth Judicial Circuit also assisted
in the investigation and will pros-
ecute the case.

Bell man arrested,


charged with ,


vehicular homicide


By Carrie A. Mizell
Phillip Eugene Cooper, 51, of Bell
is being held at the Gilchrist County
Jail on a $100,000 bond after being
arrested and charged with vehicular
homicide.
Cooper was arrested after an in-
vestigation by the Florida Highway
Patrol revealed that he was under the
influence of two illegal prescription
drugs the night he crashed his van
into another vehicle killing the driv-
er of the other vehicle.
According to Investigator Lena
Ward of the Florida Highway Patrol,
the accident occurred on February 3,
2010 at 8:20 p.m. as a result of Coo-
per's reckless driving.
Cooper was reportedly driving a
2006 Ford E250 cargo van south on
US 129 just five miles north of Bell.
Ward indicated that Cooper was driv-
ing a minimum of 76 to 80 mph in
a 60 mph zone when he crashed into
the back of a 1997 Chevrolet Blazer
driven by Elpidio Gonzalez-Rosales,
47, of Bell.
According to Investigator Ward,
reconstruction calculations per-
formed from measurements obtained
on scene indicate that there was
only 17-feet of pre-crash braking, or
avoidance evident.
"The area of US 129 where the
crash occurred is a straight and level
roadway with no visual obstructions
that would have contributed to the
crash," Investigator Ward stated.
"Although it was dark at the time of
this crash, with no artificial lighting
in the area, the defendant [Cooper]
described in great detail observing
brake and tail lights on the SUV he
was overtaking prior to the crash,
during a sworn Mirandized interview
obtained on the scene."
Investigator Ward went on to state
in her report, "The defendant [Coo-
per] specifically explained how he
first noticed the SUV approximately
200 to 400 feet in front of him when
he saw brake lights illuminate on the
SUV. The defendant [Cooper] further
stated that he observed tail lights on
the SUV and could tell that the SUV's
headlights were also illuminated. The


Phillip Cooper
defendant [Cooper] explained ob-
serving the SUV's brake lights illu-
minate briefly at least twice and said
he thought the SUV was going to pull
over or make a turn, but it did not. Yet
with all his admitted detailed warn-
ing to the SUV he was overtaking at
a high rate of speed, the defendant
failed to react and drove his van into
the rear of the SUV while traveling a
minimum of 16to 20 mph over the
posted speed limit."
.Cooper's van struck the rear of
Gonzalez-Rosales' Blazer causing it
to go off the west shoulder of the road
and strike a tree. Extensive damage
was done to the front of the vehicle,
so much so that Gilchrist County Fire
Rescue had to extricate Gonzalez-
Rosales from the wreckage. He was
later taken to Shands Hospital where
he was pronounced deceased.
While there was no indication of
Cooper's impairment on scene, In-
vestigator Ward stated that toxicol-
ogy reports indicated the presence
of both Alprazolam and Oxycodone
in Cooper's system at the time of the
wreck.
According to Dr. Bruce Goldberger,
director of toxicology at the Univer-
sity of Florida Diagnostic Reference
Laboratories, both of these medica-
tions were within a high range of
therapeutic levels. Cooper could not
provide any proof of having a current
prescription for either drug.
Cooper is scheduled to appear be-
fore Circuit Judge Mark Moseley on
December 16.


Gilchrist Schools boast


92% graduation rate


By Carrie A. Mizell
Out of all the 67 counties in the
state, Gilchrist County tied with St.
Johns- County for having the fourth
best graduation rate in the state.
The Florida Department of Educa-
tion released statistics on Monday re-
lating to high school graduation rates
and Gilchrist County, once again,
garnered high scores.
According to the National Gov-
ernors Association (NGA) Rate,
Gilchrist County had a 92.1 percent
graduation rate for the 2009-2010
school year, a drop from the 2008-

2009 county graduation rate, which
was 94.7 percent.
After reviewing the new high
school graduation rate statistics, Su-
perintendent Don Thomas said that
Gilchrist county Schools have man-
aged to stay at the top of the state in
graduation rate due to a lot of hard
work and focus.
Thomas said that the school dis-
trict is fortunate to have a truancy
officer. John Vickers, who previously
served as truancy officer retired and
now Sharon Langford is working as
truancy officer for Gilchrist County
Schools.
"Sharon is doing a wonderful job
picking up where John left off,"
Thomas said. "Our administrators
and high school guidance counselors
have made a commitment to ensure
that students are monitored and cared
for while attending Gilchrist County
Schools. It is not an easy task to make
sure students are progressing in the
correct classes and staying on track
to graduate on time."
The NGA Rate includes standard
diploma recipients and special di-
ploma recipients as graduates. Drop-
outs, certificate recipients, GED exit
option recipients and those who have
not graduated on time are considered
non-graduates.
Gulf County led the state with a
95.5 percent graduation rate.
Surrounding school districts have
the following graduation rates: Ala-
chua County 76.4 percent, Dixie
County 66.4 percent, Levy County
- 70.7 percent, and Suwannee Coun-
ty 62.7 percent.


Make shopping local for a



Christmas tree a family tradition


By Carrie A. 1 9izell
Decking the halls this holiday sea-
son requires only a short drive as Gil-
christ County boasts two Christmas
tree farms that offer a range of trees
at affordable prices.
From Sand Pine grown in the field,
to fresh cut Fraser Firs, Jones' Christ-
mas Tree Farm and Neilson's Christ-
mas Tree Farm have a lot to offer.
According to Hollis Jones, Fra-
ser Firs were going fast on Saturday
from his tree farm, which is located
in north Gilchrist County. Open daily
from 10 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Jones'
Christmas Tree Farm offers over


3,000 u-cut trees including Cypress,
Blue Ice, Cedar, Sand Pine, and Vir-
ginia Pine, as well as fragrant Fra-
ser Fir trees brought down from the
north.
"I think we've sold between 200
and 300 trees already," Jones said
on Tuesday morning. "Last year we
didn't have any northern trees, but
our field was open for u-cut. We sold
600 or more trees; and already this
year, I think we are slightly ahead of
last year's numbers."
Joyce Neilson also reported higher
sales this year at Neilson's Christmas
Tree Farm, which opened the day af-


ter Thanksgiving.
In the Dec. 3, 2009 issue of the Gil-
christ County Journal it was reported
that Neilson's Christmas Tree Farm
had sold 83 Christmas trees within its
first few days of business last season.
On Tuesday, Joyce Neilson said that
the farm has already sold 140 Christ-
mas trees this year.
Located five miles west of New-
berry, Neilson's tree farm is open
daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. While
shopping for a Christmas tree at
Neilson's, a family can watch a large
model display train run, pet animals
at the farm's petting zoo or take part


in weekend hayrides.
When it comes time to select a tree,
Neilson's offers u-cut Sand Pines,
saws provided, or Fresh Fraser Firs
and Scotch Pines grown. in North
Carolina. The farm also sells two va-
rieties of living trees in pots, Leyland
Cyress and Carolina Sapphire.
Both Jones' Christmas Tree Farm
and Neilson's Christmas Tree Farm
are members of the Florida Christ-.
mas Tree Association. Jones' Christ-
mas Tree Farm is located at 1230
NW 95th Street, Branford. Neilson's
Christmas Tree Farm is located at
6780 SE 67th Court, Trenton.

single vehicle crash


By John M. Ayers
A single vehicle accident claimed
the life of a Ft. White woman last
Tuesday night.
The woman was driving a 1999
Saturn on US 129, four miles north
of Branford at 11 p.m. when the crash
occurred, reported Corporal Joseph
E. Sumner of the Florida Highway
Patrol.
Wendy M Mosley, 29, was travel-
ing north on US 129 when she ap-
peared to have lost control of her car
as the vehicle traveled off the road-
way onto the eastern grassy shoul-
der.
The vehicle traveled 234 feet in a
northbound direction before coming
back up onto the roadway. The Sat-
urn continued to travel 122 feet in a
northwesterly direction across both
lanes of travel on US 129 rotating in


a counter clockwise direction. The
vehicle left the roadway sliding onto
the grassy shoulder traveling an esti-
mated 48 feet across the right of way
before impacting the sloped embank-
ment with the passenger side of the
vehicle.
The Saturn flipped over on the roof
and continued flipping several more
times during which the driver was
ejected from the vehicle.
The vehicle landed in the front por-
tion of the Tabernacle Baptist Church
property.
Suwannee County Emergency
Medical Service was dispatched to
the scene and the paramedics pro-
nounced the driver deceased on the
scene.

County reduces speed


limit on SW
By John M Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action in a recent public meeting
to reduce the speed limit on SW 15th
Court to 30 mph.
Gilchrist County Transportation
Superintendent Billy Cannon re-
quested the board to consider reduc-
ing the speed limit on the county';
most southerly portion of SW 15th
Court from the intersection of SW
100th St. north to the City of Trenton
municipal boundary. The Commis-
sion asked the superintendent if the
road met the guidelines to be reduced
within a residential area. Cannon ex-
plained the road had a very restricted
easement with large oak trees along,
the edge of the road.
Commissioner Kenrick Thoma.
made a motion to have the county at-
torney prepare an ordinance to reduce
the speed limit along the estimated
one mile of roadway from SW 100th


15th Court
St. north to the Trenton city limits.
Commissioner Harrison agreed with
a second before the board approved
the action by a 4-0 vote. Sheriff Dan-
iel Slaughter requested the board ap-
prove the ordinance and place signs
on the right of way before he begins
to enforce the reduced speed limits.


located on County Road 138.
"Since taking office 1 have made it
my goal to expand our officers' pres-
ence into the community," Sheriff
Slaughter said.
Officials at the Town of Bell and
the North Gilchrist Fire Station have
both provided office space to the
Sheriff's Office so that an officer's
work station may be set up. Neces-
sary equipment has been set up at the
two locations which will allow depu-


ties to perform their daily duties at
the stations rather than having to re-
turn to the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office in Trenton.
"The stations are not manned con-
stantly, but will provide the officers a
location to meet with the public, con-
duct interviews and do their reports,"
Sheriff Slaughter explained. "I would
like to thank the Town of Bell and
North Gilchrist Fire for allowing us
the use of their facilities."

During this holiday season, I am
thankful and would like to share
some heartfelt thoughts with you.
I want to thank my husband, Tom-
my, and my family, neighbors and all
the citizens of House District 11 for
allowing me the opportunity to serve
as your State Representative from
2006 to 2010.
It was an honor and a privilege
to be elected to serve as your voice
in our state government. When you
serve in this capacity, you have the
chance to cast literally hundreds of
votes and to make thousands of, what
I believe, are important decisions.
Thus, the responsibility given to an
elected representative is serious and
should be treated as such.
In my electoral defeat, I was sad-
dened and disappointed but never
dispirited nor disheartened. For each
and every one of the votes I cast and
for every decision I ever made, each
met two basic criteria. First, the
votes were cast every single one of
them with only the very best inter-
est of our district in mind. No matter
the issue, the venue, or the pressure
from outside sources, I knew that I
was your voice and your representa-
tive and I looked beyond party affili-
ation, past rhetoric and always into
the hearts and minds of the people I
was elected to serve.
Second, I leave service with a
peace-filled heart and a crystal-clear
conscience. In these troubling times,
too many elected leaders fail this
fundamental test. Too many seek to
achieve personal gain either through
power or financial riches. In doing
so, many shed their core values and
as a result, deserve to lose the public's
trust. I know I come home with the
comfort of knowing that during my
length of service, I maintained my in-
tegrity, stayed true to our values, and
never was forced to compromise our
district. Even my most ardent oppo-
sition never accused me of betraying
the public's trust.
Which brings me to this campaign
and our state's future.
I believe public policy is better
when the numbers of each party are
closer to the middle because that's
when both sides are forced to work
together, consider all ideas, and build
consensus. When the numbers are
more equal, it's more difficult for
either party to lock down every vote
of its members; and elected officials
are more representative of their con-
stituents. Only then will good public
policy outweigh partisan politics and
party loyalty. Until the leadership of
a majority refrains from forcing its
own agenda and is willing to hon-
estly work with the minority for the
good of the people, the pendulum
will continue to swing from one ex-
treme to the other; and our state, our


Debbie Boyd
nation and its citizens will continue
to be the victims.
With this election, our state is now
completely controlled by one party
from the Governor's mansion to
a super-majority in both the State
House and Senate and every of-
fice in between. While I believe that
most issues transcend party loyalty,
what is important is the will of the
electorate.
And they have spoken.
I genuinely wish all of our elected
leaders in both parties success, and
I challenge the majority leadership
to seize this opportunity to set aside
partisan politics for good public poli-
cy. Our state is in dire straits and de-
spite the political rhetoric suggesting
otherwise, there are no easy or fast
solutions. I challenge every citizen
to remain watchful of those elected,
know how you are represented, and
be a vital participant of the turn-
around our ship of state needs.
For my part, I offer my gratitude
for being allowed to serve, my will-
ingness to be of continued service,
my counsel when asked, and my
prayers when needed.
Thank you to so many who had
confidence and trust in me, have ex-
pressed encouragement for my future
*and asked "What next?" I know that
doors of opportunity close and new
doors open. After eight years as an
elected servant, I embrace and value
the time I have to spend with my
family during the holidays. I would
be honored to serve the public again
in the future, and I will recognize and
welcome the next door of opportu-
nity that opens!
Again, thank you. I feel that serv-
ing you was a wonderful blessing and
I will forever cherish the time you al-
lowed me to have as your representa-
tive.
Debbie Boyd served as House Dis-

December
(Kent Heaton)


The last month of the Gregorian calendar is December.
The derivation of December comes from the Latin "decem"
which means "ten." In the Roman calendar December was
the tenth month. December starts on the same day of the
week as September every year. and ends on the same day of
the week as April every year. December is 31 days to the
New Year. The end of the 12th month marks the beginning
of the first month of a new year. The year ends and a new
year begins with each December.
Moses wrote in Psalm 90, "The days of our lives are
seventy years; and if by reason of strength they are eighty
years, yet their boast is only labor and sorrow; for it is soon
cut off, and we fly away. Who knows the power of Your
anger? For as the fear of You, so is Your wrath. So teach us
to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom"
(Psalms 90:10-12). We make great plans in the month of
December and we call them the resolutions for a new year.
Our hopes and dreams rest in the new leaf given by a new
year. We will try harder, work harder, go farther and do so
many things in the next year.
December represents the end of the year and yet we make
plans as if the New Year will always be there. Life is much
like that. From our January birth to the spring of life we live
in the hope of a bright and hopeful tomorrow. The summer
finds us with the vigor of youth followed by the declining
years of fall. Winter brings death as December closes the
chapter on another year. We live as if there is always a
tomorrow.
We all have Decembers in our lives. "And as it is
appointed for men to die once, but after this the judgment"
(Hebrews 9:27). December comes to young and old. It is the
finality of life and the end of life. The calendar changes with

Trenton Sr. Center News


Submitted
On November 19, the Trenton Se-
nior Center was filled to overflowing
with over 100 seniors enjoying the
music of the Philman Family Band
followed by a delicious turkey dinner
with all the trimmings served by stu-
dents from Trenton high School. A
special drawing for a turkey was done
by guest speaker and retired pastor
Hank Cribb. The winner was Alene
Philman, who not only took home the
turkey, but also sang with her sons in
the band. Many thanks to the many
people and merchants who made this
a great day for all concerned.
If you like Christmas music, the
Trenton Senior Center is the place
to spend your lunch hour during the
month of December. The week will
start out with Mary Ann and Jesse


each passing year but life is a one time calendar. There are
no more pages and yet upon this single page of time our
eternal destiny rests. Numbering our days understands the
changing of the calendar. We have a promise of possibly
seventy or eighty years but this is no guarantee. The old
must die and the young can die. Wisdom comes from
knowing that December can come anytime.
James reminds us of the brevity of life and certainty of
the 12th month. "Come now, you who say, 'Today or
tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year
there, buy and sell, and make a profit'; whereas you do not
know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It
is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then
vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, 'If the Lord wills,
we shall live and do this or that.' But now you boast in your
arrogance. All such boasting is evil" (James 4:13-16). Death
is certain and that means that eternity is certain. How we fill
the calendar of life will determine how happy our
December journey will be.
For the child of God there is a "New Year." Death is not
final but a new beginning. "When Christ who is our life
appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory"
(Colossians 3:4). Glory follows death! The promise of
eternal life is given to those who walk in the grace of God.
The long journey of life will end and our earthly tabernacle
will be destroyed. Mortality will be swallowed up by life (2
Corinthians 5:1-8). December for the child of God is a time
of going home. It is the realization that our citizenship is in
heaven (Philippians 3:20) and we look for that which is to
come (2 Corinthians 4:16-18). What a time of rejoicing that
will be.

COOKING AND
We had a wonderful ThankSgiv-
ing at the hunting camp which is our
family tradition. My brothers took
care of the meat. My brother Mike
raised a turkey (free range) and my
brother Lloyd smoked him for our
Thanksgiving meal. There really is
something to be said for fresh, really
fresh turkey because that was the best
turkey I have ever eaten in my entire
life.
The following craft recipe has been
in my cookbook binder for over 20
years. Years ago my good friend, Pa-
tricia Yates, and I taught a 4-5 year
old Sunday school class together. I
have fond memories of teaching with
Pat and of the year we made these or-
naments using angel cookie cutters.
If you make these ornaments one
Sunday, they will be dry and ready
to go home with the children the next
Sunday.



(Decorations only, do not eat)
1 cup cinnamon
1 tablespoon cloves
1 tablespoon nutmeg
cup applesauce
2 tablespoons white glue (I used
Elmer's glue)
In medium bowl, combine cinna-
mon, cloves and nutmeg. Add apple-
sauce and glue, then stir to combine.
Work mixture with hands for 2 to 3
minutes until dough is smooth and
ingredients are thoroughly mixed.
Divide into 4 portions. Roll out each
dough portion to inch thickness.
Cut dough with cookie cutters of
desired shapes. Using straw or tooth
pick, make a small hole in top of or-
nament. Place cutouts on wire racks
and allow to dry at room temperature
for several days. Turn drying orna-
ments over once a day until dry. Dry-
ing could take up to 5 days. Thread
small ribbon through 'hole in orna-
ment to finish ornament.
These ornaments can be hung on
the Christmas tree or tied to the top of
packages. You can even string them
together to make a garland for the
fireplace mantel. This recipe should
make 32 two-inch ornaments.
Having two sweet grandchildren of
my own has inspired me to search for
a good sugar cookie recipe so we can
make cut out cookies. Allie and Gus
love anything with a sprinkle, so I'm
sure they will be all too happy to help
cover the cookies with sprinkles.


CARRYING' ON

G/ea/n G/'"ese
J(yata Gov/^'ef
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter, softened
1 (3 oz.) package cream cheese
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg -
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoon salt
In a large bowl, beat sugar, but-
ter and cream cheese until light and
fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend
well. Stir in flour and salt. Beat well.
Cover with plastic wrap and refrig-
erate for 1 to 2 hours for easier han-
dling.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. On
lightly floured surface roll half of
dough at a time to 1/8 inch thickness.
Cut into desired shapes with floured
cookie cutters. Place one inch apart
on ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 7 to 10 minutes or until
slightly browned. Cool 1 minute and
remove to wire rack. Frost and deco-
rate as desired. Makes 5 dozen.
The following icing recipe works
real well for cookie decorations be-
cause it becomes really hard when it
dries.


4 cup cold water
3 tablespoon meringue powder
3 cups confectioners sugar, sifted
1 teaspoon vanilla
In a large bowl, beat 4 cup cold
water and meringue powder until
frothy. Add confectioners sugar and
beat until smooth. Note: make sure
there is no oil on beaters or bowl
before making this icing. This icing
will become very hard once dried.
It works well to color and spread on
cookies or to pipe on. This icing will
hold sprinkles to cookies. Once the ic-
ing is made, cover bowl with a damp
towel because it dries out very quick-
ly. (Meringue powder can be found in
the Wilton cake supply department of
craft stores or Wal-Mart).

Mrs. Rhodes'4th grade class plants a butterfly garden. Second graders make a butterfly garden.

TES 2nd and 4th graders get to plant a butterfly garden


Submitted
The Trenton 'Elementary School
second grade and Mrs. Rhodes' 4th
grade class listened to presentations
given by Mrs. Dana Langford, Edu-
cation Coordinator for the Gilchrist
County Soil and Water Conservation


District. The children learned about
the life of a pollinator we all enjoy,
the butterfly. The kids spent the af-
ternoon making paper butterflies,
listening to a story about "The Very
Hungry Caterpillar" and ending
with everyone going outside getting


dirty while planting. Heather, Salvia,
Butterfly Milkweed and several other
types of flowers were placed in the
gardens. The second grade garden is
the larger of the two located beside the
playground and the smaller is located
just outside Mrs. Rhodes' classroom.


The Gilchrist County Soil and Water
Conservation District purchased the
plants and flowers from A.K. Nurs-
ery located in Cross City, and the
pine straw was purchased from Stan-
dridge Pine Straw in Chiefland. .


Trenton Tiger
Marching Pride
News
The Trenton Tiger Marching Pride
had an extremely successful appear-
ance at their first ever State Semi-
Finals competition in Bradenton on
Saturday, November 20, 2010. The
band secured 16th place in class 1A.
Percussion tied for 11th place in class
1A. Our color guard tied for 5th place


in class 1A and ranked 15th overall
out of all 87 bands/guards that com-
peted! The band scored "Superior"
ratings in all categories and earned
their highest score of the season!
THS Band Director Stacey Tren-
teseaux expressed her feelings about
the marching season, with a' special
thanks to the staff that helped make
it all happen this year: Rhea Scaggs
(color guard), Josh Wargo (visual),
and Aaron Safer (percussion). Even
before enjoying two weeks with the


band members at band camp in the
hot August weather, these talented
and creative individuals spent count-
less hours planning and preparing
the competition show, which was
enjoyed by many in our community
at the Trenton Tigers' home football
games.
Mrs. Trenteseaux also sends "a
huge thank you to our faculty and
administration for all-their support,
our Trenton community for their
sponsorships and encouragement,
the band parents for their haid work
and care, and the school board for
funding music programs in Gilchrist
County. Words cannot express my
gratitude and appreciation to all who
were involved in the band's success
this year."
Even though marching season is
over, you can still enjoy these tal-
ented musicians when they join with
Bell's Purple Powerhouse Marching
Band in the Bell Christmas Parade on
Saturday, December 4. Also, look.for
band members at Trenton's Christmas
on Main Street on December 10.

Ms. Lovett, Ms. Kathy and Ms.
Shasta's Pre-K classes baked a turkey
for Thanksgiving. The idea of bak-
ing a turkey in our classroom was so
that each child could enjoy the smell


and aroma of a turkey baking. There
is no other smell at Thanksgiving as
rewarding and brings memories as
does a turkey in the oven baking. I
hope that these children will always
remember that smell.

Suwannee Valley Players is proud
to present this year's Christmas
play, YES, VIRGINIA, THERE IS
A SANTA CLAUS by Pat Cook. It
is a delightful start to your holiday
celebrations. Bring the whole family
to see the famous editorial that ap-
peared in 1897 in the New York Sun
and is the most published editorial
ever written.
"Dear Editor, is there a Santa
Claus?"--a question innocently asked
by 8-year-old Virginia O'Hanlon
(Makenna Hamilton). Christmas
was coming and all was right with
the world ... until her friends, Missy
(Sarah Manders) and Charly (Syd-
ney Allen), mischievously fill her in
on the "facts" about Old Saint Nick.
Who could tell her the truth? Not her
father, a doctor (Andrew Kelly) who
is always fighting against old world
cures. Not her teacher (Barbara Cle-
mens), who is already fed up with
Christmas even though it hadn't ar-
rived. So Virginia writes a letter to
the editor (Perry Davidson) of The
New York Sun, for her father always

E. Cooper 12/21/58 was arrested for
Vehicular Homicide.


said, "If you see it in The Sun, it's so."
Virginia's letter falls into the hands of
Francis P. Church (Buddy Leaptrot),
a veteran editorial writer who knows
he must answer, and must answer
truthfully. And so he begins his re-
ply, which becomes one of the most
memorable and cherished editorials
in newspaper history. Also appear-
ing is Katherine Woodham (Mama),
Darby Allen (Mrs. Madison), Janice
Grant (Mrs. Marbury), and Duwane
Schwingel (Father Michael / Lige).
Yes, Virginia runs for two week-
ends, December 3-5 and 10-12. Fri-
days and Saturdays, performances
are at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2:30
p.m. Tickets are $8 for students (k

LGREA
Submitted
Fourteen member, of the Levy
Gilchrist Educator, Association met
at Akins Restaurant in Bell for their
November unit meeting-
The guest speaker for this exent
was Judge Ed Philman. Gilchrist
County Judge. He also handed out
some valuable information regard-
ing traffic violations and the fees as-
sessed as a result. For example. driv-
ing 20-29 miles over the speed limit
in a school zone will cost a person
5516. In addition. failure to wear a
seat belt results in a 593.00 fine: run-
ning a red light costs S241.
The following, according to the
handout by Judge Philman, is par-
tial information on points assessed
against your driver license if you
choose to pay the civil penalty or are
adjudicated guilty by a judge instead
of attending and completing a driver
improvement course.
Traffic Violation and Points As-
sessed:
Passing stopped school bus--4
points; Unlawful speed resulting in
an accident--6 points; Littering--3
points; Violation of child restraint
laws--3 points.
One new member, Lucy Lacey,
joined the group. She taught 30 1/2
years as a 6th grade social studies
teacher in Gilchrist County. Door
prizes were won by Rosa Rutledge,
Literacy Chairperson and Delia Long,
LGREA Reporter. The Christmas
session will be held at Deke's Steak-
house in Chiefland at 10:30 a.m. The

2010 and before new projects and
ideas bring on the temptation of start-

es. President for 2010. has agreed to
continue to lead our group again in
2011 so there will be more new proj-
ects after the news ear starts.
Norma Birman. our program

Springhouse quilters into new ideas
and quilting projects and will con-
tinue to do so in 2011. Springhouse
members enjoy a monthly workshop
class each month of some special
technique and/or project.
One project completed was
the marching Penguins by Chris

of the feeling that a fun quilt can cre-
ate. She was happy getting this piece
finished just in time to enjoy for the
holidays.
Springhouse members will be giv-

ber 6. The quilt is on display at the
quilt shop in Trenton and raffle tick-

When the spill 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 thing 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
call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're wondering what you can do, well the next
time you're shopping, buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
