Voters to decide


who will be the


next Bell mayor
.~~~~~~~~~~~~~ / j.;;HB^ ^" ^ ^K ^ PHfl&f^^^^


By Carrie A. Mizell
Bell residents will have a second
opportunity to vote for a mayor on
December 21, after last week's elec-
tion relegated mayoral candidates
Thomas Brown and Darryl A. Bryan
into a run-off.
Thomas Brown garnered 43 votes
in the town election held last Tues-
day, compared to incumbent mayor
Darryl A. Bryan's 35 votes. A third
mayoral candidate, B.J. Light re-
ceived just 9 votes. A run-off elec-
tion is necessary because Brown did
not receive 50 plus one percent of
the votes in his bid for mayor.

The robbery of a Mexican store in
Fanning Springs on Saturday marked
the third time in three months that a
local Mexican store has been robbed
in the middle of the day, the store
clerks tied up, and three Hispanic
male suspects fleeing the scene.
Only this time, the Levy County
Sheriff's Office busted one of the al-
leged robbers. According to Major
Evan Sullivan of the Levy County
Sheriff's Office, Norbin Dejuses Me-
dina, 35, of West Palm Beach was ar-
rested wile trying to flee the Stone's
BP parking lot on Saturday and
charged with two counts of Armed
Robbery.
Medina's partners in the Tienda
Mexican Store robbery fled the scene
despite three hours of tracking by
three of the Levy County Sheriff's
Office K-9's.
According to Major Sullivan, the
Levy County Sheriff's Office re-
ceived a robbery alarm at Tienda
Mexican Store in Fanning Springs on
Saturday' morning. The victim told
911 dispatchers at the Communica-
tion Center that three suspects had
left the, store in a white Ford Explor-
er. Before deputies could arrive at the
store, the vehicle was spotted in the

Town councilman Larry Sutton
retained his seat on the Bell Town
Council. Sutton received 56 votes
compared to his challenger Jeff
Musselwhite's 30 votes.
Bell voters also kept Michelle
Rose as town clerk, giving her 63
votes, compared to Kimberly Mus-
selwhite's 23 votes.
In all, 29 percent of Bell's 299
registered voters went to the polls
last week to cast a ballot in the town
election.
Voters are encouraged to vote on

from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.


parking lot of Stone's BP gas station
on US 19 south of Fanning Springs.
Two suspects were seen entering
the store and a third suspect was get-
ting out of the Explorer when depu-
ties pulled into the parking lot. One
of the suspects, Norbin Dejuses Me-
dina, was taken into custody imme-
diately while the other two suspects
fled on foot through a heavily wood-
ed area.
Despite an extensive search, the
two other suspects were able to elude
deputies.
The investigation revealed that
the suspects had entered the Tienda
Mexican Store in Fanning Springs
just before 10 a.m. on Saturday. All
three men acted like they were go-
ing to make purchases and while at
the cash register demanded money
armed with a gun. The store clerk and
a male customer were pistol-whipped
and the male customer was tied up.
The suspects robbed the clerk and the
customer of an undisclosed amount
of money before fleeing the store in
a white Ford Explorer.
Later in the day a 2004 Chevrolet
Cavalier with a Florida tag 713-WTZ
was stolen from Discount Liquor in
Chiefland. The victim left the vehi-
cle running and went into the liquor
store, only to find the vehicle stolen.
At press time, it was believed that
the two armed suspects stole the ve-
hicle and may be traveling to south
Florida.
According to Major Sullivan, this
is the second time the Tienda Mexi-
can Store has been robbed at gun-
point. On October 10, 2010 the store'
was robbed at gunpoint in a similar
fashion. The armed robbers from Sat-
urday's robbery are believed to have
robbed the store in October as well.
A similar armed robbery also oc-
curred in Gilchrist County on Thurs-
day, Nov. 4 when three Hispanic men
robbed Mi Gaudalupana, a Mexican
store across from Akins Barbecue in
the middle of the day. Store clerks
were tied up and the store was robbed
of an unknown amount of cash. Gil-
christ County deputies responded
and investigators are currently work-
ing the case. Lt. David Aderholt said
at press time that investigators are
seeing if the crimes are linked to the
Gilchrist County robberies.

By Carrie A. Mizell
Third-grade students at Trenton
Elementary School learned what
it means to be good citizens this
week as they made Christmas cards
for hospital patients who will spend
Christmas at North Florida Regional
Medical Center.
North Florida Regional Medical
Center invited' Trenton Elementary
School to partner with them this
holiday season for a Christmas Card
Exchange. In doing so, the 125 third-
grade students at TES created Christ-
mas cards and banners, utilizing
supplies provided by the Gainesville
based hospital.
"We are using this opportunity to
teach our students about community
service and the responsibility we
have, as citizens, to serve our com-
munities," explained Riley' Deen,
principal of TES.
Along with making cards for pa-
tients, students in each of the six third-
grade classes worked on banners that
will hang in the lobby of North Flori-
da Regional Medical Center over the
holidays. Like the Christmas cards,
each class' banner was unique. Con-
nie Corbin's class worked on picture
window panels that look like stained
glass for their banner, while Amie


Orrin Luke shows off his Get Well
Soon Christmas card.
Bachle's class painted their hands
green and stamped them on a banner.
to look like holly.
As Dot Barron told her third grade
students while they worked on their
lavish Christmas cards, "You would
be surprised what a difference the
cards you create will make in some-
one's life this Christmas."

Careccia named Gilchrist County Fire Chief


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action last week to appoint Billy
Careccia to the position of Fire Chief
in Gilchrist County.
Careccia has been with Gilchrist
County for several years serving as
the Gilchrist Fire Rescue Training of-
ficer.
The Gilchrist. Commission ap-
pointed Careccia to serve as the in-
terim fire chief when Carlos Perez
retired earlier in 2010.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
reported that Billy Careccia has been
working hard doing a great job as in-
terim Fire Chief for Gilchrist Coun-
ty.
"I want to appoint Billy Careccia as
Fire Chief where he will serve in that
capacity and as the Gilchrist Train-
ing officer," Commissioner Thomas
explained.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
agreed with a second before the
board unanimously agreed to the ap-


Chief Billy Careccia


pointment.
Billy Careccia also reported to the
board that a used fire engine owned
by Cocoa Beach Fire Rescue is a
good truck for Gilchrist County. The


interim fire chief explained that he
and Milton Weeks traveled to Flori-
da's east coast to review and inspect
the truck recently. '
"We test drove the truck for some
15 miles and the unit worked real
well," Careccia explained.
The fire truck is a 1991 model
manufactured by E-One that is low
in mileage and in good condition.
Careccia told the board that Weeks
found that the radiator needed some
repair, the timing chain cover needed
replacement, the front driver's seat
needed repair and the paint on the
front portion of the engine was faded.
There were several spots of rust on
the doors along the window openings
that can be easily repaired, Careccia
explained.
The truck will be available for pur-
chase after January 1011 for $30,000,
Careccia explained. He said the items
needing attention were reported to
cost no more than $5,000.
The board asked what a compa-


rable truck would cost in the same
condition. Ron McQueen reported
that a like truck in this good condi-
tion could be worth $50,000.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to purchase the truck
after the issues in question have been
corrected. Commissioner Harrison
agreed with a second for discussion
purposes.
Commissioner Harrison asked the
county administrator if he could pro-
vide the board with a truck to give
a like comparison to make sure the
county was actually getting a good
deal on the fire truck.
Commissioner Langford added this
to the motion to be finalized before
the purchase of the truck.
The board agreed to the purchase
of the truck following a 5-0 vote once
the issues were finalized.
McQueen reported this truck
would replace a 1984 fire truck that
was purchased in 1996 from the City
of Orlando for $30,000.

Not even the misty rain and cold temperatures could put a damper on this year's Christmas on Main
Street. According to Kyle Stone, executive director of the Gilchrist County Chamber of Commerce, an
estimated 2,000 families enjoyed the night of fun, fellowship and Christmas goodies while strolling down
Main Street. Twenty-eight bicycles and eight infant bags were given away.

Streetwise

It is that time of the year again, the
time for holiday parties, gift giving
and a good time to be had by all...
well, maybe not all. There ate many
for whom the economic downturn
has wrenched away much, if not all,
of the holiday spirit.
Many of you know what is coming
next, so sit back with another glass of
eggnog and think of it as a refresher
course. For new readers, this is the
one time of the year when I stray a
bit from my normal investment fare
in order to show you how to achieve
some guaranteed exceptional returns.
It all begins with the concept of
compounding; a force that Albert
Einstein said was the most power-
ful force in the universe. Let me give
you an example.
We begin back in 1947, in Los An-
geles, California. Diane Hendricks
has created a handmade Raggedy
Ann doll that she wants to donate to
charity. She asks her husband Bill to
give the doll to any organization in
the area that would forward it on to a
needy child. Unfortunately, Bill was
unable to find such an organization.
In relating this predicament to his
wife, Diane's suggestion was that
maybe Bill should start one. As luck
would have it, Bill was also Major
Bill Hendricks, a Marine Reservist.
He and his fellow reservists proceed-
ed to collect and distribute 5,000 toys
to needy children.
Their campaign was so successful
that the Marine Corps officially ad-
opted "Toys for Tots" and expanded
it into a nationwide effort. Their mis-
sion is the same today as it was back
then, to bring holiday joy to Ameri-
ca's needy children.
"Toys for Tots" received an added
boost because in civilian life Hen-
dricks was also the publicity director
for Warner Brothers. Therefore, in
addition to drafting various celebri-
ties to help publicize the program,
Hendricks was able to persuade Walt
Disney to design the "Toys for Tots"
logo. That logo is still in use today.
Disney also designed the first poster
used to promote what had become a
nationwide program.
The investment of one Raggedy
Ann doll, in the life of one child 62
years ago, is today the "Toys for
Tots" Foundation, a non-profit orga-
nization that has collected and dis-
tributed more than 370 million toys
to 173 million needy children. This
charitable endeavor has made the
Marines an unchallenged leader in
looking after needy children during
the holiday season. Now do you see
what compounding can do?
At this point, as you sit there con-
templating your eggnog, I have a fa-
vor to ask. As many of you know, this

is the one and only time that I actual-
ly recommend a specific investment,
an investment that will pay dividends
far in excess of what you will receive
on Wall Street.
Yes, the call for help is never end-
ing, and this year is certainly no ex-
ception. Still, try to imagine what it
must be like for a child not to receive
a gift this holiday season. Right now
there are more than 13 million chil-
dren living in extreme poverty and
the number has increased by 2.5 mil-
lion over the past ten years.
According to the National Center
for Children in Poverty, another 16
million children live in very low-in-
come families that are nonetheless
ineligible for public aid. Yes, I know
many of you are on a restricted bud-
get because of the economy. None-
theless, please take the time to pur-
chase at least a small toy or two for
a local charity or the "Toys for Tots"
program.
Oh, one other small favor. When
you are out shopping, you will no
doubt notice the volunteers outside
your favorite store ringing a bell to
try to get your attention. Think about
what it must be like to stand outside
for hours on end in winter weather,
trying to raise money for the needy.
At least here in Florida the tempera-
ture is almost always warm.
Therefore, this is what I would
like you to do. Instead of just walk-
ing by, take a moment to pause and
reach into your purse or pocket. No,
do not reach for the coins. Please, dig
a little deeper. Work your way down
to where you keep the folding stuff.
Find that picture of old Abe Lincoln
and drop it in the pot. I am sure old
Abe would approve.
Finally,. in the event no one takes
the time to express his or her appre-
ciation for your efforts, let me...thank
you.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Last week my friend, Angie McK-
enzie, and I made a little road trip. We
traveled north to go about as Southern
as possible in the state of Florida. Our
first destination was Lamont, which
consists of more or less of a gas sta-
tion/pecan house called Walkers Pe-
can House and a few homes. This
was my third visit to the business,
and I have to tell you the lady who
runs the place is so nice and help-
ful she just makes you want to shop
and shop. She gave us samples of a
couple of her best selling jams. We
sampled "Toe Jam" which was really
good, but when all was said and done
the "Frog Jam" came home with me.
OK, so I know by now you are won-
dering what in the world the nice lady
was selling. Toe Jam is made of tan-
gerine, orange and elderberry and the
Frog Jam was made of figs, raspber-
ries, orange and ginger.
Angie and I both stocked up on
pecans for our Christmas baking and
several packs of pecan and peanut
brittle. After we helped ourselves to
more free samples of candied pecans,
such as the store's best seller But-
ter Cream Pecans, we were ready to
travel further on up the road to just
north of Tallahassee.
'We found our other destination
for the trip down one of several oak
canopied roads that run north of Tal-
lahassee. After leaving the main road,
we drove down Centerville Road,
which is a wonderful winding drive
through the country side to arrive at
Bradley's Country Store.
This was our first trip to Bradley's,
and I have to say we were not dis-
appointed by the old store. It was
like a step back in time. From the
sugar cane mill located under the gi-
ant moss draped live oak to the grits
mill located in a historic old barn, the
grounds of Bradley's store is worthy
of a walking tour. Just behind the old
barn we spotted the smoke house and
at that point we suspected we were in
for a treat.
The story goes that the old store
building was built in 1927 after
Grandma Mary Bradley began mak-
ing sausage and selling them from
her home kitchen in 1910. In fact the
fourth generation of Bradleys are still
using grandma's sausage seasoning
recipe today. They also use natural
casings and then hang their sausage
in the smokehouse where they are
smoked with oak and green hickory
wood.
From the steep tin roof to benches
and rockers on the store front porch
it was a welcome breath of the past
which took us back to a simpler time.
Angie and I both enjoy old fashion
country things, and the store surely
took us back in time. The well-worn
wood floors spoke of the generations
of customers which this longtime
north Florida family has served since
1927. From a ball of cotton twine to
suspenders this old store was a lot of
fun to explore.
We made our way to the back of
the store to find a meat case filled to
the brim with not only smoked linked
and fresh sausage that the business is
known for but many old time seldom
seen favorites like hogshead cheese
and cracklings. Mmmm, mmm good!
At this point I was pretty much in
heaven. Angie said, "Maybe I should
go get us a buggy" and I said, "Yep,


I think we are going to need a buggy,
a big one."
We proceeded to pack the buggy
with the prettiest backbone, (only
I would consider backbone pretty),
smoked pork chops, fresh 'pork
chops, link sausage, bacon, old fash-
ioned hoop cheese, ground grits and
meal. Even though I did not buy any
I surely admired a large pan of fresh
pork tenderloins. As I stood in front
of the case shopping away, I could
not but recall one of the Journal's fa-

I thought all the meat was very rea-
sonable with smoked,sausage selling
for $5.50 a pound, meaty backbone
was only $3.25 a pound and a 12-
ounce bag of skin cracklins selling
for $2.95.
It was around dinner aka lunch time
after we filled our buggy, and we no-
ticed locals lining up for the sausage
dogs. The butcher was busy frying
mild sausage links in the back so we
made a quick decision to eat one of
the mild sausage dogs for lunch fresh
from the Bradley's smoker by way of
the frying pan. Our lunch was com-
plete when I spotted a basket of sour
cream pound cake sold by the slice
for 75 cents.
We ate lunch in the car and talked
about how cool the old store was and
decided then and there that our trip to
Walkers and Bradleys should become
an annual tradition to take place ev-

a tradition, and I think Angie and I
have stumbled upon a good one.

Jleart Matters
By Angle Land


Have you noticed how every
single holiday commercial prom-
ises that this is "most wonderful
time of the year?" Now, don't get
me wrong, I love the holidays, but
rarely does the real world always
live up to those promises. What
about those years we must face
Christmas without a loved one be-
cause of death, conflicting sched-
ules, unresolved conflict or even
divorce, or maybe just too many
miles. Any of these can leave us
feeling discouraged and wondering
how in the world to cope. I think
Mary and Joseph knew a little bit
about that....
"So Joseph also went up from
the town of Nazareth in Galilee to
Judea, to Bethlehem the town of
David because he belonged to the
house and line of David. He went
there to register with Mary, who
was pledged to be married to him
and was expecting a child. While
they were there, the time came for
the baby to be born, and she gave
birth to her first-born, a son. She
wrapped him in cloths and placed
him in a manger, because there
was no room for them in the inn."
Luke 2:4-7
About that first labor pain, Mary
had to be thinking, "This is not how
it was supposed to be!" Those pret-
ty Nativity scenes we set up each
year are wonderful decorations, but
the real deal was dirty and smelly!
Surely Mary didn't have this in

AARP news
Submitted
AARP will hold its regular month-
ly meeting on December 21 at 10:30
a.m. at the Lodge of Otter Springs.
December is our fundraising
month; we will be having a Silent
*Auction of all of the items that the
members bring in. There are always
many good buys for the wise shop-
per. The highlight of the day will be
the "noisy auction" where you will
have a chance to bid on items donat-
ed by local merchants. It's always a
lot of fun.
This is the meeting where the new
officers for 2011 Will be sworn in.
Please attend and give them your
support for another great year. We
closed out the year with 176 mem-
bers, which makes us the 4th larg-
est chapter in the state. When I tell
people that, they are amazed that the
smallest county can have one of the
largest chapters. Starting January 1,
our $5 dues for 2011 will be payable
at the next regularly scheduled meet-


mind...instead of a soft, clean bed,
she gave birth on the floor of a
stable. Instead of her mother and
other women tending to her, she
was alone with Joseph, who was no
doubt as overwhelmed as she was!
Instead of a cradle to lay her son,
she placed him in a feed trough...
But do you remember those shep-
herds who came to see the baby Je-
sus? Consider the fact that if Mary
and Joseph had been anywhere
else, they would have missed it.
Shepherds were not exactly high
on the social ladder, but God chose
them to be the first witnesses of
the birth of his Son! Who better to
understand the amazing truth that
God had just provided the perfect
"Lamb" that would one day be the
sacrifice to take away the sins of
the world? Could it be that when
we feel like there is no room for us
someplace, it is because God has
made room for us somewhere else?
Try this perspective when dealing
with holiday plans for your fam-
ily: if someone can't be there, for
whatever reason, look around and
see who that makes room for.. .and
if something causes you to miss
family celebrations, look around
to see where God is making room
for you. Celebration is ultimately
up to us, and the attitude we choose
to take. Our plans may not work
out exactly like we hoped...but it
could be that God has something
extra special in mind this year...


ing. It's still the best buy in town.
The Hospitality Committee reports
that they will be supplying the meat
and rolls so you are kindly asked,to
bring a vegetable dish, salad, or des-
sert to round out the meal.
Myrtle Scruggs, our longtime Hos-
pitality Chairlady, is retiring, so let's
get behind our new chairperson and '
help as much as possible.
We have lost one of our beloved
members, Fran Moran, who worked
on the Hospitality Committee for
many years. She was also a volun-
teer at Ayers Health and Rehab Cen-
ter, where she will be greatly missed.
Our Sunshine and Shadows Lady,
Meveree Pope, has had a knee re-
placement, but at last report, she was
home and doing well.

Audrey and Judge Philman share Thanksgiving breakfast at Kathy's
All Things Preschool.

Kathy's All Things Preschool news


Submitted
Judge Philman and his grand-
daughter, Audrey, came by Kathy's
All Things Preschool to share in our
Thanksgiving breakfast on Friday the
19th. They were joined by over 100
parents and friends who came to cel-
ebrate with us.
Audrey was one of the first chil-
dren.to enroll at Kathy's All Things
in August of 1996 when we opened.
The center became nationally ac-
credited the following year and was
awarded Florida Goal Seal Status at
this time.
Many things have changed in the
ensuing 14 years. Perhaps one of

the biggest changes is Florida's Vol-
untary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) Pro-
gram which has been offered at the
center every year since becoming
available. This is a 540-hour pro-
gram offered free to all Florida resi-
dents who turn 4 before September 1
each year. Each provider is given a
readiness rate for the previous year in
January, which measures the readi-
ness of the kindergartners they sent
to school the previous August.
Last year Kathy's All Things
scored a readiness rate of 294 out of
a possible 300. The center's score
has consistently been above the state
average each year.

County to improve Shingle Landing ramp


By John M. Ayers
The Florida Boating Improvement
Program has selected a Gilchrist
County application project, Shingle
Landing renovation, to receive a
boat landing improvement grant for
$216,973. This program will provide
funding to renovate the old boat land-
ing and parking area at the end of SW
70th Street in Gilchrist County on the
Suwannee River.
Ron McQueen, Gilchrist Coun-
ty Administrator, reported to the
Board of Commissioners that Gil-
christ County had received written
documentation of being awarded the
grant, but the Federal funding for this
project is still contingent upon being
funded by the United States Fish and
Wildlife Service. He explained to
the board, in their Monday, Decem-
ber 6 meeting that Gilchrist County
would have a small amount of match
funding involving this project. He
explained that Gilchrist County is
working with the Suwannee River
Water Management District to have
them install board fencing around the
enlarged park. The Board of Com-


missioners learned that the SRWMD
has also agreed to provide up to .75
of an acre of property east and south
of the present park to allow for ad-
ditional parking for up to 19 vehicles
and boat trailers.
The boat ramp improvements will
allow for the, present ramp to be en-
larged to run deeper into the river and
be wider than the existing single lane.
The project will provide for a single
lane ramp improvements, but only as
a single lane ramp. A floating dock
will also be installed adjacent to the
ramp to give boaters a place to tie up
their craft following unloading. This
boat ramp improvement program
will also provide material to further
stabilize the eroding riverbank at the
park.
The County Administrator's office
reported this project would begin af-
ter a contract is signed and submitted
back to the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission from
Gilchritt County. This project will
go out for bids and is expected to be
completed in 2011.

Animal

entries are

down for

2011 fair
By Carrie A. Mizell
Animal entries for the 2011 Suwan-
nee River Fair are down, due to tough
economic times and the increase in
cost of raising animals.
According to Marti Smith, sec-
retary for the Suwannee River Fair,
the numbers of fat steers, swine and
heifers weighed and tagged in over
the last three months are down across
the board. The only exception being
feeder steers, which according to
fair statistics jumped from 155 at the
2010 initial weigh-in, to 156 feeder
steers weighed in on December 4 for
the 2011 fair.
Forty-two fat steers were weighed
and tagged in on October 2, Smith
explained. This is a decrease from
the 2010 fair when 54 fat steers were
weighed in at the initial weigh-in and
the 2009 numbers, which show 66 fat
steers weighing in.
Feeder steers, however, have been
on the rise since 2010 when they
jumped from 145 weighed-in 2009,
to 155 in 2010 and now 156 in 2011.
Swine numbers continue to rise and
fall each year. According to Smith,
280 hogs were tagged in on Decem-
ber 11 for the 2011 fair, compared to
292 tagged in at the initial weigh-in
on 2010. In 2009, 288 hogs were
tagged in at the initial weigh-in.
The number of heifers weighed and
tagged in on December 11 dropped
off significantly from last year. Ac-
cording to Smith, only 78 heifers
were brought to the fairgrounds on
Saturday, compared to 93 heifers
who were initially tagged in for the
2010 fair.
The entry deadline for all non-sale
animals is Wednesday, Jan. 5, 2011.
This includes horse, goat, dairy cow,
rabbits and poultry. All applications
must be completed with required en-
try fee and postmarked by this date,
explained Smith. No hand delivery is
accepted.
Animal registration forms for the
2011 fair, which will be held March
10-12 and March 18-23, are available
on the fair website mysrf.org

Suwannee River Fair, call Marti

THS gets an 'A' while

BHS will appeal its 'B'


By Carrie A. Mizell
School grades are in for Gilchrist
County high schools! Trenton High
School earned an A, and Bell High
School earned a B. However, the
Gilchrist County School District
plans to appeal Bell High School's
B.
Elementary school grades were
released over the summer, which
showed Bell Elementary School
with a B school grade and Trenton
Elementary School with an A.
According to Ronda Parrish, di-
rector of educational services for
the Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict, the way school grades are cal-
culated for the middle/high school
changed with the 2009-2010 school
year.
Parrish explained that new cat-
egories have been added to the
school grade calculation in addition
to the FCAT results portion. Those
categories are graduation rate-over-
all, graduation.rate at-risk, accelera-
tion participation, acceleration per-
formance, readiness reading, and
readiness math.
"The new categories included in
the new calculation do not allow the
high school grades to be released
until November or December, after
adequate time has been allowed to
collect information that isn't com-
pleted until the end of a school
year," Parrish explained.
School grades are based on 70
percent FCAT results and 30 per-
cent new components. According
to Parrish, most high schools in the
state, with grades 9 to 12, have a
50/50 formula, whereas Gilchrist
County has combination school
with middle school grades included
which allows the formula to lean
more heavily on FCAT results since
the new components are directly re-
lated to liigh school.
Once the grades were released on
December 6, Superintendent Don
Thomas said, "The high school
grades are determined on a point
system. To obtain a school grade of
'A' you have to earn at least 1,050
points and adhere to several condi-
tions. I want to point out that both


Benefactor and member of the Paul
Harris Society.
"It is a tremendous honor to be
selected," he said.' "I am looking
forward to leading our district as we
provide service to others, promote
integrity, and advance world under-
standing, goodwill and peace."


high schools obtained significantly
more points than the minimum
number needed to obtain an 'A.'
Bell High School earned 1,209
points and Trenton High School
earned 1,251 points."
Bell High School was not given
an 'A' school grade because stu-
dents considered at-risk failed to
make adequate progress, according
to the Florida Department of Edu-
cation guidelines.
"Sometimes you have to look
beyond the letter grade or you will
miss the great achievements being
made in our school system," Thom-
as said.-
On Monday afternoon, the Gil-
christ County School District re-
leased the following statement
regarding the school grades, "We
are having conversations with the
Florida Department of Education
regarding the Bell High School
school grade. The at-risk gradua-
tion rate category, which caused
Bell High School to drop a letter
grade, is being discussed. The re-
quirement for this: category, called
at-risk graduation rate, requires a
threshold of 75 percent. Bell High
School had a 76 percent at-risk
graduation rate. Points were deduct-
ed based on a comparison with the
previous year's at-risk graduation
rate. However, prior to deducting
the points for the decline, the mini-
mum expectation for this category
was met. If the Florida Department
of Education will not re-examine
our situation, we will be appealing
the results of the Bell High School
school grade."
Bell High School Principal Rick
Reed said that the administra-
tion and staff of Bell High School
worked extremely hard last school
year to implement the state of
Florida's new components for high
school grades.
"The number of points neces-
sary for an 'A' school was earned;
however, as-a school and district we
want all of our students to be suc-
cessful," Reed said. "Our staff is
already looking to next year and the
successes that are possible."

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L


T^_ - r"'' ~l--*.


I






























The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, December 10, at the Levy
County Museum. It was a busy day.
Quilting was done as well as work on
the Double Nine Patch. The applica-
tions have been sent to the State Fair.
So far we have 20 quilts, crafts and
what have you going down. We have
always done well down there.
We have been told that Goldie
McHenry is at Haven Hospice in
Chiefland. They have been taking
care of my son for over a year and
he's doing great. It is not a place to
go to die but to get well. They do
great things, and the staff and volun-
teers are the best.
We will not be having Ray Franks
and the Can't Hardly Play Boys out
any more. They have other plans and
will be soon going back North. We
will miss them.
We still have spaces on the bus go-
ing to the Fair on February 15. The
cost is $23 and we will have passes
for everyone; call 352-493-2801 for
reservations.
Thursday lunch was great as always
with rice and vegetables, broccoli,
biscuits, cheese and macaroni, col-
lards, macaroni salad, deviled eggs,


sweet potato casserole, brownies,
chocolate cake, and so much more.
The Watermelon Quilt was won
by Virginia Lewis of Williston, and
The Attic Windows Quilt was won by
Vicky Van Dyke of Trenton.

Mr. James "Jimbo"
Edwards
Mr. James "Jimbo" Edwards,
born March 19, 1986, in Anchorage,
Alaska, died on December 9, 2010,
in Gainesville. After graduating
from Service High School in Anchor-
age in 2004, he followed his brother
across the country to Gainesville.
Prior to his first semester at Santa Fe
Community College, he worked as
"Oakey the Turtle" at the Oaks Mall
in Gainesville. He loved it when the
little 'kids would run up and wrap
their arms around his knees. He
earned his AA degree from Santa Fe
in 2008 and was currently a senior at
the University of Florida. He planned
to attend medical school and practice
psychiatry; he possessed a special
gift for relating to and helping others.
Outside of the classroom he was very
involved in student government and
volunteered at the Ronald McDonald
House in Gaiq ie at Su
Jirbo was baized at Suwannee


Baptist Church in 2000 by his uncle,
Pastor Fred Edwards.
He was preceded in death by his
sister, Lisa;. and his grandfathers,
Robert "Bob" Wheelright and Wil-
liam "Bill" Edwards.
He is survived by his mother,
Melanie Wheelright Edwards of An-
chorage, Alaska; his father and step-
mother, Sam Edwards and Margaret
Volz of Wasilla; his brothers, Eric
Edwards of Denver and Bill Edwards
of Minneapolis and his grandmoth-
ers, Geri Wheelright of Anchorage
and Betty Sue Edwards of Suwan-
nee. Also sharing their grief is his
"adopted" brother Joe Moody; his
former sister-in-law, Esther Massey
Edwards; many other aunts, uncles,
cousins and friends; and last but not
least, his dog, Gonzo.
Jimbo could best be described as
kind, tender, generous, humble, fun
loving, and more than a little stub-
born. Jim's laughter, humor, love
and warmth were appreciated and
are already missed by his family and
friends. Jimbo had a tattoo of a dove
memorializing his sister Lisa and we
are comforted in the knowledge that
they are together.
There will be a graveside service at.
Fort White Cemetery on Wednesday,
December 15, 2010. In addition, his
Alaska family and friends will gather
at a later date inAnchorage. The fam-
ily asks that in lieu of flowers, memo-
rials be directed to the Crisis Center
in Gainesville, any other suicide pre-
vention'services in your community
or an animal rescue organization.
Arrangements have been placed
under the care of the Rick Gooding
Funeral Home in Cross City.

ber of Ramsey Bend Hunting Club.

church and community. His passion
was the great outdoors, hunting and
gardening. Sam was a member of

....., 1 .. :Man arrested after having sex with child Itf I


By Carrie A. Mizell
An 18-year-old Trenton man has
been arrested and charged with Lewd
or Lascivious Battery Upon a Child
after he admitted to having sex with
a 13-year-old.
Carlos Aaron Diggs, of 8562 SE
69th Terrace, was arrested on Friday,


Dec. 10, by Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Investigators Lt. David Aderholt
and Ron Boyd.
A lengthy investigation by the
Gilchrist'County Sheriff's Office re-
vealed that on the evening of Friday,
Dec. 3, Diggs reportedly had sexual
intercourse with a 13-year-old child


while at a relative's home, while the
relative was not home. After admit-
ting to investigators that he had sex-
ual contact with the child and con-
firming the location of the incident,
Diggs was taken into custody and is
currently being held at the Gilchrist
County Jail on $50,000 bond.


A new, much larger pharmacy was added to Palms Medical-Bell.


Palms Medical-Bell


adds 2,500 sq. ft.


By Carrie A. Mizell
A seven-month-long expansion at
Palm Medical Center's Bell location
was completed last week, nearly dou-
bling the size of the facility.
* Dream Builders Development of
Trenton completed the construction
last Tuesday just hours before the
facility held an.Open House for the
community.
. "Around 50 people stopped by to
see what all has changed," said Leah
Jenkins, office manager. "It was a
surprise for me to see just how ex-
cited people are for us."
According to Jenkins, the addition,
which changed the building from
3,500 sq. ft. to 6,500 sq. ft. allowed
for a great many changes inside the
facility.
"It was tight before!" Jenkins said.
SThe expansion added a conference
room, larger pharmacy, office for the
pharmacist, break room, .financial
services office, expansion of medi-
cal records and four new examining
tooms. With the old pharmacy mov-
ing, two additional examining rooms-
were freed up, allowing for a total of
12 examining rooms at the facility.
S"There is much better patient flow
now that patients are not having to
wait a long time in the waiting area,"
Jenkins explained.
The waiting room was also remod-
eled in the renovation. New furniture
was brought into the facility as well.
S"The addition has allowed for
more office space for our providers,"
Jenkins said. "We've also added a

"My family's been fishing for eight generations. It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up.

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.


For assistance, please call:
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858
