The magical joy and beautiful.
wonderment of children receiving
toys on Christmas day will hold
true this year for needy youngsters
in Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie coun-
ties thanks to the Toys for Tots
program presented by the local de-
tachment of the U.S. Marine Corps
Reserve.
Patient parents stood in a line
that stretched for about two city
blocks in Trenton on December
15 as they waited outside Trenton
United Methodist Church. Parents
awaited their turn to travel up and
down makeshift aisles of toys,
games, balls and the like, which
had been assembled inside the
church's Fellowship Hall.
Vince Arcadi was Tri-County
Toys for Tots coordinator again
this year, as he has been for the past
five years. Pat Arcadi, his wife and
co-coordinator, said Vince has vol-
unteered in the Toys for Tots pro-
gram for 15 years now. The couple
is not alone in the venture. "We
have many great volunteers from
the Tri-County Area;" she said.
Those volunteers include retired
U.S.M.C. Master Sgt. Bill Cum-
mings and his wife, Maxine, from
Gilchrist County. Another couple
of volunteers hail from farther
away. Jeremy and Crystal Parrott
of Ontario, Canada, helped. They
are visiting Levy County now.
Between 28 and 30 people volun-
teered this year.
"We've got it pretty much
down to a science now," Pat Ar-
cadi said, adding that the group
distributed toys at First Baptist
Church of Bronson the day before.


"The church helped yesterday. They
brought people in from the cold and
let them wait in the sanctuary. And
they served hot cocoa and coffee."
Two days later, Toys for Tots vol-

unteers were at First Baptist Church
of Cross City. There, the volunteers
performed the same service as they
had in Levy and Gilchrist counties
earlier in the week.


Low-income families receive 'the
help. Parents use a shopping cart
and are escorted by a volunteer as
they go up and down the aisles of
27 racks. They are given a couple
of age-appropriate toys, which they
select for their children. Each fam-
ily receives a game. Each child is
given an activity, like a coloring
book, as well as toys. Families re-
ceive balls too. A parent may trade
a toy for a larger wooden item, like
a picnic bench for tots, a see-saw, a
rocking horse or rocking chair. The
larger wooden toys are made by
inmates at .Cross City Correctional
Institution.
Parents also receive one of the
2,000 stockings that volunteers put
together. As they exit the building,
the parents leave with five or six
toys per child.
As a result of Toys for Tots, be-
tween 400 and 500 children will
find toys under the tree for them in
Gilchrist County this year. Another
600 to 800 tots in Levy County are
being treated to toys, and between
800 and 900 Dixie County youths
are getting toys for Christmas as an
outcome of the Toys for Tots pro-
gram.
All of the money and toys col-
lected in the Tri-County Area go to
children in Gilchrist, Levy and Di-
xie counties.
There were 2,300 children who
received toys as part of the pro-
gram in Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie
counties last year. Not only does
the Marine Corps Reserve distrib-
ute at three churches, but they find
children who did not get toys there
by visiting with the Guardian Ad

Bell students


prepare care boxes


for local soldiers

The Bell Elementary School fourth
grade students have .learned some
very important character building
skills this Christmas season.
Fourth grade classes began a care
box project back in November. By ty-
ing in Hospitality and Sensitivity, the
Gilchrist County Character Council
character traits for November and
December, the fourth grade teachers
used the project as a wonderful learn-
ing experience for students.
Fourth grade teacher Susan Owens
used her Facebook account as a re-
source to get lots of local names of
soldiers from this area that the stu-
dents could make boxes for.
Included in every box was a letter
and Christmas cards the students had
made. The boxes were stocked full of
items that the troops could use in the
areas that they are stationed in and
some things the students and teachers
thought would be good to just have
on haqd.
A total of nine packages were sent
tac.w ^^.s^ ^S w~'s


out to Iraq, Bahrain, Khost, Afghani-
stan, Kuwait, and to battleships in the
middle of the ocean.
The fourth grade students have al-
ready begun to receive e-mails back
from some of the local soldiers that
have received care boxes. After read-
ing the clip from one of the letters,
it is clear that this project provided a
wonderful lesson for the students.
"It's amazing how such a small
gesture of caring can have an impact
on another human being," Owens
said. "The stuff in the boxes were
items that most of us take for granted
each and every day. We do not realize
just how lucky we are to have these
very same things every day."
The fourth grade students are plan-
ning on collecting items and sending
off another care box just before Val-
entines Day.
"Everything we do, no matter how
small it may seem, does have a large
impact," Owens said. "Please keep
our military in your prayers during
this holiday season and every day."


Stuffing boxes, left to right, are Faith Rankin, Aubrey Cook, Rosa Bo-
nilla, and Tyler Trantham.

Water Shortage

Advisory

A Phase I Water Shortage Advisory
was issued by the Suwannee River
Water Management District govern-
ing board December 14 and will re-
main in effect until further notice.
The District covers all of Colum-
bia, Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, La-
fayette, Madison. Suwannee. Taylor
and Union counties, and portions of
Alachua, Baker, Bradford, Jefferson,
Levy and Putnam counties.
The advisory calls on all residen-
tial, commercial, agricultural and
industrial users to voluntarily reduce
both indoor and outdoor water use
through conservation measures.
The District already has a land-
scape irrigation rule in place which
limits lawn and landscape watering
to one day per week during fall and
winter and two days per week during
spring and summer.
The rule took effect in January of
this year and applies to all residents
within the District. It is permanent,
long-term, and requires mandatory
landscape irrigation conservation
year-round.
The Phase I Advisory, on the other
hand, is issued in response to mod-
erate or severe drought conditions
and remains in effect only as long
as needed. The advisory calls upon
all residents to voluntarily imple-
ment indoor and outdoor conserva-
tion measures in addition to those
required by the year-round landscape
irrigation rule.

SVL Blue Wolves are soccer champs


Submitted
Meet the SVL Blue Wolves! Hear
them howl!
If you haven't heard about this
team (blue and orange team)---you
haven't been keeping up with the lo-
cal soccer families.
,The Blue Wolves, a team of 7-9
year old boys and girls, formed one


awesome pack and played a few re-
ally great games.
The Blue Wolves, sponsored by
Gainesville Dermatology, are un-
defeated and now carry the title of
'2010 SVL Soccer Champs' in their
category. This was certainly no easy
task. It was teamwork all the way!
The wolves were up against great
teams each week. All the teams got
stronger and tougher every time they
played. It was amazing how quickly
this age group learned the differ-
ent techniques. It was obvious, the
coaches from each team had been
sharing their knowledge and ideas
and these kids were taking it all in.
This age group has got to be the best
age to enjoy.soccer.
Although we had several freezing
nights, it did not slow them down.
We kept the kids warm by letting
them play and the parents blew out
a little steam each time they yelled
out, encouraging the kids to run a
little faster, kick a little harder, make
another point, howl a little louder,
and so on. The kids would absolutely
come off the field wiping sweat, us-
ing our big coats and blankets we
were bundled in as their rag.
Let it be known, "Standing beside
each little soccer player is a tough
parent." You've just got to be tough
to withstand the cold as you pray a
little harder during each game that
your little ones don't get hurt or sick.
It is so stressful watching your chil-
dren play any sport. But, we would
all still be out there right now if the
season had not ended so soon-----we
absolutely love soccer. If you have
young children and you have never
experienced them in a sport, start
with soccer; you'll be hooked from
that moment on.
This season is over now...how
quickly time passes. Just yesterday
we began the soccer season, meeting
three nights each week practicing or
playing. Now it's time to put away
the soccer ball and grassed fields
making room for the basketball and
the indoor courts. If ever you are
interested, SVL is there for all the
youth in our community who want
to participate in some kind of sport.
With the change of each sport comes
a new group of friends, new coaches,
new ideas, different uniforms, differ-


ent colors, different snacks, different
rules, and of course, a different ball,
but it's all fun!
Congratulations SVL Blue Wolves
on a great season.
Here's hoping you have a HOWL-
ING good Christmas.

The character trait for this month
is sensitivity.
In determining the essence of this
quality, one must listen to others ful-
ly; watch facial expressions; notice
tone of voice; put oneself in others'
shoes and show a caring attitude.
Sensitivity requires the ability to
receive impressions and to be tender.
Sensitivity shows concern and evalu-
ates needs on a more subjective basis.
It is considerate of people's feelings
and implements a plan with thought-
fulness and gentleness toward oth-
ers.
Sensitivity looks beyond one's
own needs to the attitudes, needs, and
emotions of others.
Listening is an essential part of
sensitivity. It requires placing one's
own agenda secondary to those in
need. Sensitivity is using one's sens-
es to perceive the true attitudes and
emotions of others.
Troy Breton is the Council's fea-
tured personality of the month.
In Gilchrist County Troy Breton is
seen out and about as he volunteers
his time with the Gilchrist County.
Sheriff's Volunteers.
Troy Breton, and his wife, Angie,
moved to Gilchrist County in 1988.
Troy is the father of two daughters
and two sons.
Troy began his working career
in the area as a mechanic for White
Ford in Chiefland. He then founded a
towing business in Trenton. This was
followed by an acute illness, which
forced Troy to give up that business.
He then decided the best thing to do
was get to "work" as a volunteer.
Troy, being the sensitive person he
is, related that it was his father who
taught him the blessing of being sen-
sitive to others, especially to those
who are in authority. So with that in

Troy Breton
mind, he joined the Sheriff's Volun-
teers, and is usually seen as a mem-
ber of security during many public
functions in the county.
One of Troy's favorite things to do
each year is to be with the Sheriff's
Volunteers as they all work together
in packing and delivering Thanks-
giving baskets to the needy of the
county.
He shared that in being a part of
this annual project, he senses great
joy as the gifts are received by the
recipients.
Troy also volunteers with the school
program at First Baptist Church.
Troy feels that being sensitive to
others helps him to understand their
needs, while doing his best to fulfill
those needs.
As we conclude the year 2010 and
begin a brand new one, may we all
become more sensitive to others, for
in doing so, we surely do reap the re-
wards of being a part of a county of
character, which is one that cares.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


Merry Christmas to one and all. We
hope that you will cherish the true
meaning of Christmas. This is more
than just a holiday; it is the birthday
of our Savior.

I attended the Trenton City Com-
mission meeting last week due Cindy
Jo's busy schedule. She was pre-
paring a Christmas luncheon for her
mother's homemakers club.
The city commission meeting has
increased in popularity from when
1 had formerly attended the meet-
ings. These days the attendance has
residents questioning the action of
the board. Most recently it involved
the termination of the former po-
lice chief. I was surprised to see and
hear some of the questions that were
asked of the commission involving
the hearings and the termination of
the former police chief.
I was very surprised to hear a resi-
dent bring up a former incident in-
volving a rape case in Trenton. The
individual wanted to discuss this is-
sue involving the former police chief
and his actions in relation to this case.
I was thankful that City Attorney
Duke Lang took care of the matter
as he explained the city commission


does not and should not be discussing
situations involving a police depart-
ment case.
The one issue that I did find most
revealing was that the city manager,
even though he faces an uphill battle
from some of the employees, seems
to have the best interest in mind for
the municipality and the future of the
City of Trenton. Taylor Brown has
his work cut out for him.
The city manager congratulated the
new fire chief and said he looks for-
ward to working with the chief and
the Trenton Fire Department.
The city manager also thanked the
City of Trenton employees for taking
part in additional training and doing
such a great job for the residents in
Trenton.
In closing, the city manager asked
for a dialogue to be opened with the
city commission in future meetings
to begin discussing the important is-
sues that face the City of Trenton.
The future will be challenging for
small, rural areas that are planning
and striving to identify what is most
important. The city will also face
revenue issues when they begin to
update their comprehensive plans to
pave the way into the future.

Animal Control in
Trenton
Dear Editor,
I live right in the heart of Trenton.
As you know Animal Control no
longer has a contract within the city
limits of Trenton. On 12/04/10 we
out of sympathy fed a dog that our
neighbors left to fend for itself. The
dog had been at Animal Control for
about 3 weeks before this. The dog
then jumped the fence and would not
leave our yard. We were told by both
the police and Animal Control noth-
ing could be done. The dog went
home, and the neighbors returned for
about a week to sort of care for the
dog. Now another week has gone
by and the dog is not being cared for
again. On 12/17 and 12/18 the dog
again entered our yard and is com-
ing up on our back porch. The dog is
not yet mean but I have a dog myself,
that I can not let out because I am
afraid they will fight. I have young
children who I feel it is not safe to
go in their own backyard. So I get
the same run around crap as always,
unless the dog bites someone there
is nothing they can do. I called the
Sheriff, same answer. So what do I
have to do to protect my children and


property. Shoot the dog? Really, is
that the best answer anyone can give
me. I am on a mission. This will be
taken care of. This dog deserves to
be loved and taken care of. I am not
angry at the owners, as much as I am
angry at Animal Control. I am ac-
cusing them of knowingly allowing
a dog to be neglected; of knowingly
refusing to take a dog in that is being
mistreated. This has been reported to
them, and they refuse to do anything.
Why should I have to wait for my
child to be bitten, my property de-
stroyed, or the dog to be harmed by
my dog for anything to be done. This
is animal abuse on the part of Animal
Control, and I am holding them ac-
countable.
Sincerely,
Melissa Ruede

Oh, the wonder of Christmas!
Earlier this week, I was dazzled by
thousands upon thousands of twin-
kling lights decorating the Stephen
Foster State Park in White Springs.
Adam and I went to the state
park's annual Festival of Lights
several years ago, but how quickly I
had forgotten the splendor of it all!
Mom, Lyndsay and I loaded up
Allie Claire and Gus shortly after
work on Monday, bound for White
Springs, in a trip that we knew
would delight the kids.
At a cost of $2 a person, and kids
3 and under getting in free, the Fes-
tival of Lights is hard to pass up.
With live holiday music, caroling
by local church choirs, decorated
Christmas trees in the- museum, old
fashioned yard ornaments cut from
plywood and hand painted, a marsh-
mallow roast and hot chocolate, it is
much like entering a Winter Won-
derland (one that runs through De-
cember 31.)
My favorite had to be the mas-
sive oak trees, with moss dripping
from the limbs, decorated from the
ground up to the tip of each branch
with lights. Heavenly!
Upon seeing the first oak tree
decked out for Christmas, my
momma immediately said she could
decorate the ancient oak in her yard
uch the same next year. Heaven

hometown hero/man of the year!
Whether it was your keen investiga-
tive skills, divine intervention and/or
pure luck, we honestly believe that
you saved the lives of two local resi-
dents, Mrs. Kalandyk and her grand-
son, W. A. Kalandyk. For that alone,
you should be recognized and com-
mended.
We pray that the Kalandyks are
doing well in the hospital, and hope
that they will be home for the holi-
days. As for Ron, our paths have not
crossed for a long while, but despite
being a humble guy, people need to
know that he is a top-notch investi-
gator to have solved this so expedi-
tiously. So congratulations to you,
and to all the other staff that worked
tirelessly with you and behind the
scenes. Thank you for making the
holidays a little more meaningful for
so many people's lives. May it be ex-
tra special to you and Judy, and for
the Kalandyk family.
God Bless,
The Trokes, Jim and Jean
(P.S. The eerie part of this, is that
we go back and forth to work/home
everyday, like so many other folks
here, and no one had noticed the scene
of the accident to rescue anyone. If it
wasn't for Mr. Boyd, I fear the worst
scenario would have taken place by
now. I'm not trying to monopolize
the "Letter to the Editor" column/sec-
tion, but since no one else addressed
this yet, I felt that Ron Boyd and the
Sheriff's Department deserved bet-
ter, and to provide equal time for all


Three Years In The Life Of Jesus
(Kent Heaton)


Nearly two-thousand years ago, four writers recounted
the life of a man who lived just over three decades. A little
less than 84,000 words cover the four gospels of the "Word"
(John 1:1) that "became flesh and dwelt among us" (John
1:14). How would the angels have written the final three
years of Jesus' life? The apostle John acknowledges in the
closing of his book, "And truly Jesus did many other signs
in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in
this book; but these are written that you may believe that
Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you
may have life in His name" (John 20:30-31). It seems so
small in comparison to the scale of His life yet such a
complete record that no other proof is needed of His
existence. Even three years causes one to ponder the brevity
of life of one that would change the face of mankind forever.
Matthew gives us the Jesus of the Jewish people to
believe that the promises of the Messiah are found in the life
of the one born in Bethlehem in fulfillment of scripture.
Often through Matthew's writing are found the expressions,
"then was fulfilled" (Matthew 2:17), "thus it is written"
(Matthew 2:5), "was spoken by the prophet" (Matthew 3:3)
to show the heritage of Jesus. Mark declares to the Gentile
world the evidence of one who came to save all mankind.
The message is quick, clear and with power appealing
especially to the Roman mind.
Luke, the gentle physician, helps us embrace the
humanity of Jesus of Nazareth. Through his writings the
historian declares in simple tones the life of the son of
Joseph "as was supposed" (Luke 3:23) ... "the son of
Adam, the son of God" (Luke 3:38). John, beloved of the
Lord, departs from the pattern of the other writers and


majestically reveals the divine nature of "the Word, and the
Word was with God, and the Word was God" (John 1:1).
The three years of Jesus' life changed'the world. Our
calendars testify to the carpenter from Nazareth every time
we inscribe a new year. The teachings of this Galilean rabbi
have established governments and destroyed others. No life
in the history of man will ever rise to the influence of the
one whose life ended on a Roman cross. By His own words,
no other being will bring man to the Creator but Jesus
Christ. "I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes
to the Father except through Me. "If you had known Me,
you would have known My Father also; and from now on
you know Him and have seen Him" (John 14:6-7).
After His death, disciples would give their lives
spreading the teaching of the one called "Christ" (Acts
2:36). They would be beaten and killed because of His
name. Lives would be spent in teaching and proclaiming the
message of Jesus Christ throughout the world (Colossians
1:23). Kingdoms and empires would rise up in opposition
but unable to quench the thirst of those seeking the "living
water" (John 7:38). The pages of His life three years -
would be spread to the four-comers of the earth unabated.
Today we still live under the influence and power of those
brief years.
The first thirty years of His life were significant but with
little testimony. The final years of the life of Jesus is where
eternity depends. Without the message of those brief years,
man would have no hope and no promise. Thank God for
three years. The real joy of those three years is found at the
end which is the beginning HE LIVES!

help, John Ayers. Lyndsay and I just
rolled our eyes and laughed, know-
ing daddy would have a fit at the
mention of such an idea.
I also fell in love with the gift
shop and craft square inside the
park. It was filled to the brim with
unique, handmade items made by
local artists and craftspeople. Speak-
ing of making plans for next Christ-
mas, I know where I will be going
to do my shopping! This gift shop
had it all, from trendy handmade
cocktail rings made from orange
and blue beads to pincushions made
from vintage tatting. Allie and Gus
were loving all the raccoons and al-
ligators in the children's area, and
Adam would have been in heaven
in the Florida book section.
I have to tell a funny story. It was
while I was shopping the gift shop,
with both hands filled with one of
a kind treasures, that my sweet
2-year-old decided she needed a
bracelet of her very own. With both
hands full, I couldn't get ahold of
her fast enough to slow, much less
stop the breakage....Oh, the break-
age, which cost this momma $18.75
of unplanned spending. Insert a big
'ol sigh. I am now the proud owner
of a one-of-a-kind Florida Gator
bracelet that is broken.,
Merry Christmas, Momma. Love,
Allie Claire.

the good deeds that law enforcement
provides for our community. Even
the Sheriff's volunteers work their
behinds off, especially at this time
of year, as they are all instrumental
for the organizing of the Thanksgiv-
ing Day baskets for needy families.
So, take the time to show your ap-
preciation in some form or fashion.
The Food Pantry needs your help
with Christmas Holiday baskets, too,
so give back to the less fortunate in
our area, in the true Christmas spirit!
Thank you to all of "Santa's Help-

And it came to pass in those days
that a decree went out from Caesar
Augustus that all the world should be
registered.
This census first took place while
Quirinius was governing Syria.
So all went to be registered, every-
one to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Gali-
lee, out of the city of Nazareth, into
Judea, to the city of David, which is
called Bethlehem, because he was of
the house and lineage of David, to be
registered with Mary, his betrothed
wife, who was with child.
So it was, while they were there,
the days were completed for her to be
delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn
Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling
cloths, and laid Him in a manger, be-
cause there was no room for them in
the inn.
Now there were in the same coun-
try shepherds living out in the fields,
keeping watch over their flock by
night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord
stood before them, and the glory of
the Lord shone around them, and
they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, "Do
not be afraid, for behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy which will
be to al people. .
"Fbr there is born to you this d&y
in the city of David a Savioir, 'ho is
Christ the Lord.
"And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in
swaddling cloths, lying in a man-
ger."
And suddenly there was with the
angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest, And
on earth peace, goodwill toward
men!"
Luke 2:1-14

I cooked the following recipe last
week to use up some left over turkey.
But we liked it so much I may have
to buy a turkey in the future just, so
we will have a left over turkey car-
cass. This is my cracker version of
Jambalaya, and I'm sure if any of my
Louisiana friends read this recipe,
they may very well be shaking their
heads wondering what in the world I
am thinking. But trust me, if you are
not a native of Louisiana this is pretty
tasty.





3 slices of thick sliced smoked ba-
con
3 links of smoked sausage about 4
inches long
1 turkey carcass or about 1 to 2
cups turkey meat
cup green pepper
1 cup chopped onion
1 stalk of celery, chopped
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 14.5-once can of crushed tomatoes
Salt and pepper to taste
teaspoon Tony Chachere's Creole
Seasoning
1 cup uncooked rice
1 cup water
2 cups turkey or chicken broth
Brown cut up bacon in heavy large
pot or dutch oven. Remove the bacon
and save about 1 'to 2 tablespoon of
the bacon grease. Slice up link sau-
sage in about 1 inch slices and brown
in the same pot. Take up the browned
sausage and drain off all the sausage
grease. Pour all the grease out of the
pot and wipe out. Add the bacon
grease back to the pot and cook on-
ions, celery, and green peppers until
tender. Add bacon and sausage to
pot. Add all the turkey meat you have
picked from the carcass. Add garlic,
tlmates'. broth, water, rice andaga-
sofings. Stir well and cover ith'r id
and let it cook on low heat until rice
is done. Check this every now and
then and add more water if it is need-
ed. Serve this with corn sticks and a
salad on a cold day and you will have
a happy family.
Note: I used the pan drippings from
the turkey for my broth in this recipe
but you could use canned chicken
broth.
The sausage we used was a little
on the hot side but if you don't have
hot sausage you could always add red
pepper flakes when you add the sea-
sonings.

j-earn matters
By Angie Land


On Christmas Day, 1864, Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow composed
the poem, "I Heard the Bells. on
Christmas Day" that later became a
well-known Christmas carol. The
carol tells of Longfellow's experience
of hearing the church bells ring out
"peace on earth, good will to men"
on Christmas Day, during the darkest
period of the Civil War. Still months
away from Lee's surrender to Grant
at the Appomattox Courthouse, and
grieving the tragic death of his wife,
Fanny, and the crippling war injury of
his son, Charles, Longfellow penned
the second stanza of the poem, "And
in despair I bowed my head-There is
no peace on earth I said-For hate, is
strong and mocks the song-Of peace
on earth, good will to men."
If that were the last verse in the
song, it would indeed pronounce a
bleak Christmas...not unlike how
many may be feeling this year. Peace
on earth and good will to men doesn't
seem the prevalent theme to many
facing unemployment, economic
downturns, families separated by
miles, death or divorce, and the un-
certainty of the future. Yet, it was in
his despair that Longfellow heard the
bells "more loud and deep-God is not
dead, nor doth He sleep-The wrong
shall fail, the right prevail-With peace
on earth, good will to men."


We need to be reminded of this truth
during the Christmas season and per-
haps when the trimmings are stripped
away, we can see more clearly. My
family has joined the ranks of many
this season who are "scaling back" on
our Christmas shopping and giving
more to those in need...and yet the
simplicity of this kind of Christmas
really points us back to the baby in a
manger some 2000 years ago. Where
angels themselves sang the carols
and invited a field full of shepherds
who probably smelled a tad too much
like their sheep, to celebrate the very
first Christmas. This baby who was
foretold hundreds of years before, in
the greatest of detail: "For unto us a
child is born, to us a son is given and
the government shall be on his shoul-
ders and he will be called Wonderful
Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting
Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6
reminds us that God is not dead, nor
does He sleep...and without a doubt,
left heaven to come to earth...be-
cause our hearts matter.
"For God so loved the world that
He gave His only begotten Son, that
whosoever believes in Him shall not
perish, but have everlasting life."
Have a Blessed and Merry Christ-

Gilchrist County

Submitted by Tiffany VunCannon
On November 17. Gilchrist County
high school seniors participated in the
district's annual Career Expo. This
year's event was held at Trenton High
School and consisted of "Rock Star"
themed activities and entertainment.
The students were greeted that morn-
ing by a live rock band and incredible
rock-star themed decorations, created
by Trenton High School art students.
Throughout the morning, the students
rotated through several presentations
where they learned about different
career fields, college programs, and
scholarship opportunities.
Among the presenters from Florida
Gateway College were Tracy Hick-
man, Dean of Occupational Pro-
grams, Linda Williams, Academic
Advisor, and Brian Dopson, Dean of
Arts and Sciences, who also brought
along a talented group of college stu-
dents who entertained and educated
our high school students through mu-
sical performance.
Santa Fe College representatives
included Erin Rice from the Recruit-
ment/Advisement office and Scott
Fortner from the -Health Sciences
program. Rose Curcio and Shellie Ir-
vin from Capital City Bank provided
helpful employment tips to students
as they prepare to enter the work-
force.

Status of the Florida
National Guard
Foundation
Submitted
The Florida National Guard
Foundation would like to provide
additional information regarding
previous information released
regarding the Florida National
Guard Foundation. The Founda-
tion, established in 1983, is a di-
rect support organization. for the
Department of Military Affairs
that provides financial support to
members of the Florida National
Guard.
In 2009, the Foundation re-
ceived a generous donation
from one individual through the
BrAIve Fund Organizations in
Florida. From that donation, the
Foundation assisted 626 soldiers
who had deployed to Afghanistan
and Iraq with over $656,000 in
financial assistance. Due to the
current financial environment,
that donor is unable to provide
additional funds.
Currently the Foundation has
limited assets to provide assis-
tance to the soldiers and airmen
of the Florida National Guard.
With the return of the 53rd In-
fantry Brigade Combat Team, the
Foundation expects the need for
assistance to increase.
If you have additional ques-
tions, please contact the Founda-
tion at 904-827-8519 or the Ex-
ecutive Director, Debra Cox at
(904) 501-6488.

able to find out more about life after
high school from students who are

Six lucky dogs plucked from de-
plorable conditions in Arkansas will
be guests at Gilchrist Count-, Animal
Services sparkling new facility while
they wait to be adopted.
On November 23. national animal
welfare organizations ASPCA (The
American Society for the Prevention
of Cruelty to Animals,) and Best
Friends Animal Society. removed
more than 120 dogs living in ex-
tremely overcrowded and unsanitary
conditions from a volunteer-run ani-
mal rescue, approximately four miles
south of Hector, Arkansas. The res-
cue was done at the request of the
Pope County (Arkansas) Sheriff's
Office.
Fortunately, most of the dogs ap-
pear to be well-socialized. Best
Friends staff and volunteers are pro-
viding sheltering services and the
dogs are being housed at Southwind
Animal Hospital.
Animal Rescue Friends, a Gilchrist
County animal rescue group, and
Gilchrist County Animal Services of-
fered to help with the rescue by tak-
ing six dogs.
Stacey Hoyt, president of Animal
Rescue Friends, said, "We are so
appreciative of the kindness of Gil-
christ County Animal Services for
allowing us to house the dogs and
for their willingness to participate in
such a worthy cause. Animal Rescue
Friends will be facilitating the adop-
tion of the dogs once they are ready
to go. Our Animal Rescue Friends
volunteers will work with Gilchrist
County Animal Services closely on
this project."

County are Rock Star,.Muffin, Jewl,
Zena, Sammy, and Ariel. They and
the other dogs were starving when the
rescue started. Many Were suffering
from mange, parvovirus, worms and
other illnesses. While some were run-
ning loose on the trash-strewn prop-
erty--the site of a former hog farm
and two former puppy mills--others
were crammed into barns piled with
feces. A few had gunshot wounds,
and some were suffering from inju-
ries that either never healed or were
never treated.
Tanya Rippy of Gilchrist County


Animal Service said the bad times
are over for these six dogs:
"The shelter at Gilchrist County
Animal Services is meant to be a safe
haven and place of hope for abused,
neglected and unwanted animals.
The animals are often removed from
desperate situations, and brought to
the shelter, which serves as an inter-
mediary stop to receive proper care.
We work very hard and diligently to
find rescues and homes to serve as
outlets for adoptable animals. We
will continue to work towards sav-
ing th6 world, one animal at a time,"

What a great day December llth
was for the 22nd Annual Festival of
Lights and Boat Parade! We started
out with the flag raising ceremony by
the Marine Corps followed by a short
prayer for our troops and to wish ev-
eryone a safe and happy holiday.
The weather was perfect and the
crowds came out to enjoy a beauti-
ful day as they browsed among the
many varied art and craft booths and
stopped along the way to sample
some of the tempting foods available
or have a cup of hot chocolate or cof-
fee to warm them up.
The entertainment of the day was
non-stop as Twice Blessed, Gina
Cowsert and Laura Murphy, started
us off with some wonderful Christ-
mas Carols followed by the Fanning
Springs Community Church Choir
and much more. Randy Slaughter
and the Big Cypress Band along with
the Mercy Mountain Boys, Amos
Neo, Amos Philman Family Band
and Dotti South and the Slackers
were a great hit throughout the day.
The crowd enjoyed watching Todd
Kay perform his magical tricks, jug-
gling and expertise on the unicycle.
Several children got to help him with
some of his juggling attempts. He en-
tertained all day browsing throughout
the visitors, creating balloon animals
and more. He and his son Peter also
enjoyed a ride on the elephant.
The children enjoyed riding the el-
ephant and ponies as well as the train
rides throughout the park. They also
enjoyed visiting with Santa in his new
red sleigh and telling him what they
were hoping to find under the Christ-
mas Tree. Toys for Tots had a gift
for each of them as well. The Classic
Car show had one of the largest turn-
outs ever, with 110 entries. There
were some real beauties on display
and many came away with some nice
trophies. The Cruising for Grins Car
Club does a great job organizing this
part of the Festival.
The Yellow Rubber Ducky Race is
always exciting to watch and the win-
ners for that were Pat Orr, 1st Place,
Maggie Cox, 2nd Place and Steve
Megaral, 3rd Place. The Suwannee
Rivet Boat Club sponsors this portion
of the day's events. President Becky
Sanford said that 1,750 little ducks
were sold and put in the river at 3:30
to see which ones would make the
finish line first.
Drawings for the many Merchant
Gifts were made every hour through
out the day, and the raffle winners
were announced at 4:00. Dixie Mu-
sic donated an acoustic guitar, Point
of View donated a 3-dimensional
metal School of Fish art work, and


Todd Kay, juggling while riding
his unicycle
Toys for Tots donated a coffee table.
with 2 matching end tables.
Of course the day would not be
complete without the beautiful lighted
Boat Parade on the Suwannee River
in the evening. Although we only had
7 entries, they all did a magnificent
job in decorating their boats. The
winners of the parade were Theresa
Jones, 1st place in small category fol-
lowed by Trent Jones for 2nd place.
William Couey placed 1st in the me-
dium category with Heather Jones
placing 2nd place. Mike Boyer place
1st in the large category with Reggie
Horton, 2nd place, and Lyndal Lanier
3rd place.
A huge "Thank You" to our vol-
unteers from the Highway Patrol,
Gilchrist, Dixie and Levy County
Sheriff Departments and EMS units
and their volunteers for a job well
done. Our sponsors were City of
Fanning Springs, Pure Water Wilder-

Gilchrist TDC, and TV 20. We ap-
preciate the assistance of Anderson

Life no longer seems fair when we wake in the morning

We see your best buddies, Hadon, Austin, Matthew & so
many more keepingyour spirit alive, forever more.
We constantly have the question 'why'- our beautiful boy
had to die.
We had so many more things planned- like paintball,
soccer & dirt-biking in the sand.
Until we see you again, you will always be missed & loved.

Family farm produces all natural milk, cheeses


By Carrie A. Mizell
While shopping for milk at Scaff's
Supermarket in Bell. local resident
Ray Sanders had to look twice when
he saw a gallon of milk with cream
on the top.
"When I saw it, I thought what is
that?!" Sanders explained.
After further inspection, Sanders
realized that the milk he was looking
at was produced at a family owned
and operated dairy in Live Oak and
did in fact, have cream floating on the
top.
According to its website, Wain-
wright Dairy strives to proxduce high
quality milk and natural, farm fresh
cheese products. Established on
wholesome principles, values and
ingredients, Wainwright Dairy has
been in production mode for over 30
years.
SHowever, the dairy has only been
selling cheese and milk commer-
cially since June 16, 2009. Currently,
Wainwrights sell Baby Swiss, Ched-
dar, Colby, Colby Jack, Pepper Jack
and fresh cheese curds along with
Grade A, pasterurized-non-homog-
enized milk with cream on top.
SCarl Wainwright and his family be-
lieve, "It is up to us to provide our
customers with the best all natural
products and continue being good
Stewards of the land."
SWainwright began in the dairy in-
dustry in 1958 working for Gustaf-
ions in Green Cove Springs. In the
fate 1960s Wainwright and his wife,
Gail, started farming in Suwannee
County and as their family grew with
nine children, their dream of a fam-
ily farm became a reality. Their sons
James and Roy work at the dairy,
and their daughters Lisa and Cheryl
and their families help in the cheese
plant.
The Wainwrights have been plan-
ning for their first cheese market day
for several years. When asked why
cheese, Carl replied, "We are a fam-
ily farm and want to stay that way,
preserving what God has given us
and making a living on the land."
All natural cheese was a comple-


mentary business addition to their
dairy as the demand for wholesome,
natural foods continues to rise with
Americans becoming more con-
cerned with their health.
It truly has become a family op-
eration, from the dairy to the cheese
making and bottling to designing the
pictures on their delivery truck and
labels. Using fresh milk, the Wain-
wrights make cheese twice weekly.
"We start with raw milk and make
our cheese completely natural,"
Wainwright explained. "Our milk
is pasteurized only because we are
required by state and federal regula-
tions, but we do not homogenize our
milk so that it is better for you and
your body can actually digest it."
In the future, the Wainwright fam-
ily hopes to produce and also sell
chocolate milk, yogurt and butter-


milk.

Log Cabin Quilters


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, December 16, at the Levy Coun-
ty Quilt Museum. Winnelle Home
was away taking in the festivities at
the Boys Camp in Live Oak.
Some of the ladies worked on the
quilt in the frame. Other ladies helped
each other with their own projects. I
was fascinated watching a simple
crochet project being written down
for me to follow. I managed to make
two--with a little practice the project
will be a lot easier. Last week, we
reversed the names of the quilt win-
ners. Vicky Van Dyke won the Wa-
termelon Quilt and Virginia Lewis
won the Attic window. Two remind-
ers, first, the bus for the State Fair in
February is filling fast -- if you want
to see the Fair and miss the problems
of driving and parking, the price of
the bus ride includes a pass into the
Fair; and second, there will be no Log
Cabin Quilters meeting the Thursday
before Christmas. We hope to see
everyone after Christmas.
Thursday lunch was delicious,


with goulash, cheese and macaroni,
spaghetti, collards, meatballs with
potatoes and a&rrots, BBQ smoked
sausages, vegetable soup, chicken
salad, fruitcake and cookies.

other agencies.
Volunteers find love goes a long
way to help families in need. "We
try to do this with our heart," Pat Ar-
cadi said. "And we do it while being
in touch with the community. We like
to have a one-on-one fellowship with
parents and volunteers, so that the
parents select the best gifts for their
children. In some places, people are
just handed toys with no choice."
Commandant Mike Harrell, the
leader of Tri-County Marine Corps


League Detachment 1018, was
pleased to be working in Trenton that
Wednesday. "I love it," Harrell said.
"This is my fourth year doing it. I just
moved here five years ago."
There is one toy that is not given
away in the Toys for Tots program
- guns. "This is Toys for Tots," Har-
rell said, "not guns for whatever."
The group also takes precautions
to assure children receive toys. They
mark through bar codes and scratch
out prices. "We already had one per-
son try to bring a toy back to Dollar


General in Chiefland," Pat Arcadi
said. "There are very few parents
who will do that type of thing. Gener-
ally, it's a great group of people who
we help." Parents who accept the as-
sistance are appreciative.
"It's a wonderful thing they're do-
ing for our kids," said Sharla Smith
as she stood in line. "We couldn't do
without them."
Farther back in line, another par-
ent expressed himself. "I feel good
about it," Kevin Bryant said. "I ap-
preciate what they're doing."


Easton Corbin

Corbin named

Top New

Country Artist

of 2010
Gilchrist County native and coun-
try music sensation Easton Corbin
has been named Top New Country
Artist of 2010 by Billboard.
In their latest issue, which is on
stands now, Billboard magazine fea-
tures Corbin in their annual "The
Year in Music" special feature.
After hearing the news, Corbin
reportedly said, "I am pretty floored
to hear that. It's been a great, great
year. Of course, I never expected to
receive all of this. Everybody has
been so good to me, especially the
fans. It's because of those guys and
country radio that I'm where I am."
It has been reported that Corbin.
will be taking a break from the studio
and plans to concentrate on his writ-
ing and planning his next album.
Corbin's new video "I Can't Love
You Back" was recently released and
is now airing on GAC and CMT net-
works.
According to family members,
Corbin is expected to spend time
over the Christmas holidays in Gil-
christ County relaxing and spending
time with family and friends.
