Onion Peel owner says

Trenton residents do not

appreciate great food


By Carrie A. Mizell
Love was not in the air Monday
morning when Onion Peel owner
Jolie Nantz sent out a fax to custom-
ers announcing that her pizzeria was
closing immediately. In the message
addressed to the Town of Trenton,
Nantz said, "I will leave you with
this thought: You have no great res-
taurants here because you do not sup-
port them.
According to Paul Redd, who
owns the building on State Road 26
that the Onion Peel was operating in,
the lease on the restaurant space runs
through June 2011. However, Nantz
announced in faxes sent to a num-
ber of Trenton businesses, as well as
schools, that her last day in business
would be Valentine's Day. According
to Nantz, the doors of the Onion Peel
closed after fulfilling orders for Tren-
ton Elementary School.
"It is ironic that the date falls on
Valentine's Day, because in the 23
years we have had successful restau-
rants in other .cities and had waits of
up to an hour just to get in our door on
any given night of the week (or day
for that matter), Trenton is the only
city in our long history to have made
us feel unwelcomed and unappreci-
ated," Nantz said in her message.
Shortly after the restaurant opened
in July, Nantz told the Gilchrist
County Journal that she chose to
open her business in Trenton because
she likes small towns and recognized
a need within the community for a
good pizza restaurant.
Nantz's parents, Dave and Jean-


nie Nantz, owned and operated three
pizza restaurants outside of Jackson-
ville, along with Pepperoni's Pizzeria
in High Springs and Main Street Pie
Co. in Alachua prior to their retire-
ment in 2007.
After working in her parents' res-
taurants, Nantz said in August that
it wasn't until they retired that she
realized she wanted to open a pizza
restaurant of her own.
Nantz also said she worked up to
three jobs at a time since 2007 try-
ing to save up the money that was
needed to open her own restaurant in
Trenton.
In her message earlier this week,
Nantz said, "I will leave here know-
ing that I did the same great job for
my family as I have for the past 23
years, and for the first time in my 41
years, encountered a town that for
some reason, just does not appreciate
my great food or great service."
Nantz did thank the citizens of
Trenton who were loyal to the Onion
Peel.
"We are forever appreciative that
you loved our food and were kind
enough to make us part of your
lives," Nantz said. "We cannot op-
erate a business based on sometime
customers or those who finally try us
and realize what they had been miss-
ing for the past seven months."
The pizzeria owner said in her fax
that she was always baffled at those
who either said that they loved the
pizza and then never returned or
those who came constantly and then
just stopped, never to return again.

Two Gilchrist County residents
have reported phone scams within
the last week.
According to Deputy Meghan
Wooten of the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office, one senior said she
received a phone call from someone
claiming they worked for a Canadian
agency and that her grandson was
in jail there and she needed to wire
money to get him out. It wasn't until
the woman went to the bank to wire
the $5,400 that bank officials urged
her to contact the police.
The phone call was a scam, Woo-
ten said and very similar in nature to
one another resident got last week.
Anyone who receives such a call
from this scam artist, which comes
from a 514 area code is asked to get a
phone number, the name of the agen-
cy and a badge number from the call-
er, before hanging up and calling the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office.
Do not wire money, Wooten said.


Mr. James Young and Mrs. Josie Allie were crowned Valentine King and Valentine Queen at Ayers
Health & Rehabilitation Center.


Mrs. Allen and Mr. Young


crowned Valentine's royalty


By Angie Rexroat
S.W.A.K! Sealed with a Kiss!
Will you be-my Valentine? There
are a million ways to say I love you
this time of year.
The activities department at
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
Center put a new spin on Valen-
tine's Day by throwing a Valentine
themed "Senior Prom" to celebrate
the national day of love.
With tons of preparation and lots
of heart, the activities department
sent out little reminders to families
to attend the center's cupid crusade
with their family members. The
families were also asked to wear
red dresses and tux attire to accom-
modate the occasion. In the mean-


time, ballots were sent out all over
the center and residents were given
the opportunity to vote for a Valen-
tine's king and queen. Who will it
be? After much anticipation, the day
finally arrived. Photos were taken of
each sweetheart, and lots of kisses
were exchanged, too! Many loved
ones joined the Ayers family, dressed
in their best, to have a surf and turf
lunch and see who the king and queen
would be. Last year's queen, Miss
Loretta Martin, waited anxiously to
crown this year's royalty.
Finally, the new court was chosen,
Mrs. Josie Allen as Valentine Queen,
and Mr. James Young as Valentine
King. Both families were present to
share in the celebration.


Mrs. Josie Allen is 87 years old.
She has been a resident of the Gar-
den Gate Neighborhood inside Ay-
ers Health and Rehabilitation Cen-
ter since October 2010.
Mr. James Young is 89 years old.
He has also been a resident of the
Garden Gate Neighborhood inside
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
.Center since October 2010.
Mrs. Josie and Mr. James are
loved by all at Ayers.
A lot of love and compassion is
shared at this event and all events
at Ayers Health and Rehabilita-
tion Center, where we always put
our heart in it! Many thanks to all
of the partners and families who
made this day a huge success.


Kayaker says Gilchrist is a jewel


By Carrie A. Mizell
An English adventurer told Trenton
Rotarians on Monday that Gilchrist
County is the best place for any kay-
aker in the northern hemisphere to
kayak in the winter.
Nick and Sandra Crowhurst spend
two to three months each year in
Gilchrist County kayaking along the
coast, in the rivers and the springs.
The Crowhursts have kayaked for 50
years, along with hiking, rock climb-
ing, and sailboat racing.
The couple spend their winters in
America visiting family in Minne-
sota and kayaking along the Florida
coast. Ten years ago, Crowhurst said
he was looking for somewhere warm
to go. Minnesota, obviously was not
the place, so he and Sandra opened
their atlas and settled on Florida.
Noting that the top, left portion of the
state looked "bare" they decided to
explore it.
"You have the Keys, the 10,000 Is-
land, Tampa bay and Gilchrist Coun-
ty," Crowhurst said.
He quickly eliminated the Florida
Keys saying. "The area is wrecked;
there is too much traffic and too
many stores down there." The 10,000
Islands were scratched from the
list as well. While Crowhurst said
there are 95 miles of coast along the
10,000 Islands. there are only two ac-
cess points. The area is too "buggy"
for him and there are no bad weather
alternatives. Tampa Bay was also a
no go. due to Crowhurst's aversion to
overpopulation and rough waters.
In contrast to other areas of Flori-
da, Crowhurst said Gilchrist County
is ideal because there are no beaches,
which means there are no hotels and
no sprawl. If the wind blows harder
than 15 miles per hour on the coast,
Crowhurst said he changes course
and goes into a river and if that's still
too rough he kayaks along spring
runs.


"The 85 mile section of Florida's
Hidden Coast between Cedar Key
in the south and the Aucilla River
in the north is a magical playground
for the sea kayaker," Crowhurst said.
"Its charm lies in its remoteness, its
peacefulness, its wildlife, the intima-
cy of its creeks and the subtle beauty
of its seascapes. The shallow sea
borders a marshy, creek-laden area,
which then gives way to a tree line,
further inshore."


Nick and Sandra Crowhurst have
written a book, "Sea Kayak Day
Paddles on Florida's Hidden Coast,"
which is available online at hidden-
coast.net free of charge. The purpose
of the book is to supply information
to visiting sea kayakers who may
want to explore the coast and creeks
of the Hidden Coast on day trips,
rather than paddling a camping trail.

By Carrie A. Mizell
A Trenton man chased down two
burglaries stealing from his mother's
home on Valentine's Day, leading to
the arrest of an Old Town couple.
Richard Beckelheimer of Trenton
noticed a black Chevy blazer at his
mother's home around 11 a.m. on
Monday. Beckelheimer did not think
his mother was at home and did not
recognize the vehicle as anyone he
knew.
Beckelheimer pulled in to the
home, which is located on SW 80th
Street in the Bethel Baptist Church
area, and confronted a white male
and white female coming from inside
the home carrying items that belong
to his mother.
A brief scuffle took place. No one
was injured, but the couple managed
to escape in the unknown vehicle.
Beckelheimer followed them while
calling the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office on his cell phone.
The suspects ended up in an
apartment complex next to Fanning
Springs City Hall, where the vehicle
was abandoned.
Deputy Clint Anderson of the Levy
County Sheriff's Office and his K-9
partner, Robiek, responded to the
scene and tracked the suspects to a

Pump and


sink hole


issues face


City of


Trenton

By Cindy Jo Ayers
Pumps used at the City of Tren-
ton's wastewater treatment facility
have been repaired and are ready to
be installed.
The Trenton City Commission
talked about the pump problems dur-
ing a meeting held on Tuesday, Feb.
8.
Presently, the facility is running
on a rented pump that, according to
Taylor Brown, city manager, is cost-
ing the City of Trenton $2,000 per
month.
According to Brown, while the
rented pumps are being removed,
the city needs to have the sludge or
sediment that is on the bottom of the
two retention ponds removed, before
reinstalling the turbine pumps.
Brown also said that a screening or
filtering system will need to be put
in place to keep debris from entering
the pumps and damaging them once
again.
City Commissioners Arlene Wilks
and Randy Rutter, along with May-
or Glen Thigpen, all voted in favor
of putting the job, which includes
pumping out the pond sludge and re-
moving it, out for bids. Commission-
ers Marcia Hellams and Tim Kinsey
did not attend the meeting.
After the sludge is removed the
plans are to let it dry out on sight and
then truck it away, which will be an
additional expense.
Three sink holes have also opened
up at the wastewater treatment facil-
ity. City officials believe that two of
the holes may be filled in with con-
crete, but the third hole is more seri-
ous. At press time, officials were still
trying to determine if there was any
structural damage to one of the con-
crete walls.
In other City of Trenton business,
a joint commission meeting between
the Gilchrist County Board of Com-
missioners and the City of Trenton
Board of Commissioners has been
planned for Tuesday, Feb. 22. The
meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in
the Trenton Community Center,
which is located at 214 SE Third Av-
enue. Items that may be discussed at
this open forum include fire service,
animal control, the North Central
Florida Regional Water Authority,
economic development, and joint re-
cord storage.
This is a public meeting and every-
one is welcome to attend.

If you hear a Southerner exclaim,
"Hey, y'all, watch this," you should
stay out of the way. These are likely
to be the last words he'll ever say.

Submitted
The City Water and Sewer Pay-

February 16, from its old location at
112 NE 2nd Avenue to City Hall, lo-
cated at 114 N. Main Street. This is
just around the comer from its former
location. Some of you may recall
when the Water and Sewer Office
was located here in the past.
Enter the front door of City Hall
and immediately to the left is the
window where payments will be
taken. There is a parking space big
enough for two cars directly in front
of City Hall on Main Street, which
allows for 30 minute parking. There
is also parking available on 2nd Av-
enue, as before.
This move will eliminate the need
for the Water and Sewer Office to be
closed from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m. daily. We
apologize for any inconvenience this
may cause.

as south Georgia.
According to Randy Lindsey, vice
president of sales and marketing for
Mainstreet Broadband, the company
plans to also begin servicing Chief-
land, Cross City, Jena, Lake City,
Macclenny, Madison, Old Town and
Perry soon.
The company's target is under-
served areas, Lindsey explained. In
partnership with the USDA and Rural
Utility Service, Main Street Broad-
band identifies certain communities
with a need for high speed internet
service and then fills that need with
the latest wireless broadband solu-

The company is currently evaluat-

During the tracking, Robiek located
the suspects' shoes and a stolen .22
caliber rifle in the woods. Depu-
ties cordoned the area off and Levy
County Sheriff's Investigator Roger
Bell located the suspects running on
foot towards the Suwannee River.
When Bell gave them an order to
stop, the suspects jumped into the
river to escape arrest, but realized
that the water was too cold and sur-
rendered without incident.
Investigators from the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office discovered
multiple items in the vehicle, which
could possibly tie the two suspects to
numerous burglaries in the area.
Gregory Alan Bennett, 21, of
Old Town and Heather Leigh Bar-
tholomew. 22. also of Old Town were
arrested and transported to the Levy
County Jail.
They both charged with resisting
arrest. Bennett was also charged with
one count of burglary and one count
of grand theft. His bond was set at
S45,000. Bartholomew was also
charged with one count of burglary
and one count of grand theft. Her
bond was set at S40.000.
The case is under investigation,
and more charges may be pending in
the future.
According to Major Tony Smith of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
the two will be transferred to the Gil-

Why we should all

celebrate Presidents' Day


By Bob Denny
Presidents' Day is Monday. Febru-
ary 21. Why should we celebrate? Is
the president a hero. special, bigger
than life?
Maybe presidents are just people,
too. History has shown us that presi-
dents have been guilty of just about
everything, including corruption,
scandals, abuses of civil rights and
human rights, being caught in elabo-
rate lies, and even criminal activities
like spying on opposing political par-
ties and burglarizing their campaign
headquarters.
History has also shown us glimpses
of great leadership and strides in posi-
tive directions, like developing social
security, supporting equal rights for
all Americans, promoting job devel-
opment programs, federal unemploy-
ment benefits, veterans' rights, roads
and bridges, public transportation,
and other huge programs. Presidents
have also been given significant
credit for leading national defense,
foreign relations, humanitarian aid,
and working to defeat tyranny and
oppression in the world.
How do we choose a president?
Leaders rise from the crowd with
support from concerned individual
citizens, political parties, and special
interest groups. They get a message
and a platform out to the people. We
vote on those who share our point
of view on issues. We want some-
one who can be a good leader, yet be
responsive to our interests and con-


cerns. We credit or blame presidents
forjust about everything that happens
in his or her administration. But how
much power does a president really
have?
Our founding fathers were wise
enough to design a system of govern-
ment with built-in checks and balanc-
es. The congress and judicial systems
serve as checks and balances against
the president's powers, to block any
extreme decisions, and to keep him
within the limits of the constitution.
The president is seen as a figure-
head, a role model, and someone
to be held responsible. I think that
more than one president has said.
"The buck stops here." What kind of
a person does it take to even seek the
leadership of the free world? Surely
it takes strength, dedication, commit-
ment, and a strong belief in our coun-
try. I'm sure every president feels
this burden of responsibility. Look
at the accelerated aging that shows
on any president's face (and graying
hair!) in four years of office.
Our constitutional republic has
lasted 235 years. In the long view,
it works. It looks to me like it's the
best that mankind has come up with.
We can be confident that you, and
other caring and involved citizens
like those who read newspapers and
keep informed, will keep it that way.
How about joining with me this Pres-
idents' Day in feeling respect, appre-
ciation, and hope for our country on
Presidents' Day?


Springhouse Quilters' News


Springhouse Quilters met on Feb-
ruary 8 with 49 members and guests
present. President Pat Hedges pre-
sided for the meeting and was a
cheerful, happy, little lady welcom-
ing members and conducting the
meeting. Springhouse celebrated
their annual birthday with a special
birthday cake during the monthly
meeting. Springhouse was started in
February, 1992, with only 9 ladies
meeting at the Otter Springs Spring
House and organizing the quilting
group. Mary Jo Hefner was the very
first president and no longer lives in
the area. She does stay in contact
with the group when she visits the
area. Other beginning members were


Lois Schroeter and Onnie Mae Col-
son who also stay in contact with the
quilt group. Springhouse has grown
from a group of 9 ladies and now has
a membership of over 100 ladies. The
group still meets on the second and
fourth Tuesday of each month and has
a large group of working ladies that
meet each Tuesday night for a couple
of hours to work on their projects and
participate in events involving the
guild. Springhouse has continued to
grow and expand. The group con-
ducts their meetings and workshops
at their qiilt building which is west
of Trenton. If interested in more in-
formation on Springhouse Quilters,
please contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Ms. Dorothy will retire

from the City of Trenton


By Cindy JoAyers
A familiar smile from a Trenton
City Clerk will be missed when Ms.
Dorothy James retires from the City
of Trenton on June 22. 2011.
The Trenton City Commissioners
were given notice of her resignation
at last Tuesday's regular city council
meeting.
Ms. Dorothy has been with the City
of Trenton for the past 22 years.
Currently she is a deputy clerk.
handling multiple tasks including ac-
counts receivable.
Man)' longtime residents of the
City of Trenton will remember Ms.
Dorothy from her years of work at the
water and sewer department. where
she worked the front counter.
Ms. Dorothy has many plans for
her retirement such as sewing, travel-
ing and pursuing her historical hob-
bies.


the Bible, "We earnestly desire each
of you to demonstrate the same ea-
gerness for the fulfillment of hopes
until the end, so that you may not be-
come sluggish, but imitators of those
who, through faith and patience, are
inheriting the promises." (Hebrews
7:11-12) Likewise, in Hebrews 13:7
it is said, "Remember your leaders
who spoke the word of God to you.
Consider the outcome of their way of
life and imitate their faith." (see also
Philippians 3:17).
Yes, as Catholics we pray directly
to the saints, but it is not divine guid-
ance---which comes only from God--
that we ask for but their intercession.
Just like you ask a fellow Christian
to pray for a sick relative or financial
troubles, so do Catholics pray to the
saints that they might present our
prayers and petitions to Our Heav-
enly Father.
Mr. Heaton said, "Anyone who is
a Christian is a saint." Alright it may
be said of innumerable people that
they have lived holy-lives following
Christ and spreading His Word. But
as I have said, there are those per-
sons who have lived exemplary lives,
to whom we cannot deny a certain
amount of respect because of their
imitation of Christ's Way.
Mr. heaton also said, "No one has
the right to change the word of God."
And I say Amen! No one has such
a right. But I must remind you that

Ms. Dorothy James


when Martin Luther translated the
Bible from Latin to the vernacular
he removed seven books and added
a word to Romans when translating.
However, around 400 A.D. the Cath-
olic Church used her authority to de-
termine and preserve the official can-
non of the Bible. And yet Protestants
have used this same Bible (minus the
seven removed books) against the
Catholic Church's authority, when it
is the Church who preserved the Bi-
ble for them only to have it changed
during the Reformation.
Mr. Heaton mentioned Matthew
7:21-23 as proof of the ceasing of
miracles, but Matthew is referring to
those disciples of Christ who perform
miraculous works in His name but
live evil lives estranged from God.
"So extraordinary were the mighty
deeds God accomplished at the
hands of Paul/that when face cloths
or aprons that touched his skin were
applied to the sick,'their diseases left
them and the evil spirits came out of
them." (Acts. 19:11-12)
And as to Mr. Heaton's reference
to Revelation 22:18-18, I refer to my
previous mention of how the Bible
was changed by Martin Luther one of
the Protestant religion's "founders."
Catholics are human like everyone
else, we have our faults, we that is,
not the Church.

You Can't Fool God
(Kent Heaton)
The laws of nature are absolute and will never change His laws are not relevant. Turning ones nose up at the
as long as the world stands. When God created the law of God may allow the person to smell higher but
heavens and the earth He embedded strict laws that will not change the law of God. Imagine someone who
would regulate and protect the world. The moon and sun deceives himself into believing that he. is not accountable
are exact distances from the earth so they can perform to the law of gravity. Does that change 'the reality of
their function of seasons and times (Genesis 1:14-19; gravity? No! If the person denies the law of gravity and
8:22). Tides, seasons, gravity, photosynthesis, aging, time jumps from a high place will his belief save him? No! So
are all parts of the laws established by God that man 'it is with the moral law established by the Creator.


cannot alter. This does not suggest that man has not been
able to work within the laws to his advantage. Flying an
airplane is only a temporary experience that may defy
gravity but does not change the law of gravity. Man has
been able to explore space but. with limitations. He can
plumb the deepest parts of the sea but with restrictions.
When God created the world He not only established
laws of nature but He also established moral laws. This is
clearly seen in Genesis 3 when man disobeyed the law of
God and was punished. The early world of Noah became
so wicked it was destroyed by a flood; save eight souls (1
Peter 3:20). No one would doubt the law of gravity. Jump
off a high place and the law is proven. Disbelieving in a
moral law does not change the reality of a moral law no
more than disbelieving in gravity it is still real. The
apostle Paul defined this moral law and consequences in
Galatians 6:7-8 "Do not be deceived, God is not
mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also
reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap
corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the
Spirit reap everlasting life."
There is danger for man to deceive himself in
believing he can change the moral law of God. It is not a
wise course to try and fool God or to mock God. The idea
to 'mock God' is to 'turn the nose up' and pretend as if


When a man sows corn he will reap corn not apples.
Whatever seed is sown is what the crop will be. If man
sows immorality he will reap a harvest of what he
planted. It is incongruous when people believe they can
sow their "wild oats" and not harvest "grown-up wild
oats later. The kind of person you are today can largely
determine the kind of person you will find tomorrow. If
you drink alcohol don't be surprised later in life of many
diseases associated with the drug. The same can be said
about tobacco that will darken your heart (in more ways
than one) and possibly kill you. "Can a man takefire to.
his bosom, And his clothes not be burned? Can one walk.
on hot coals. And his feet not be seared" (Proverbs
6:27-28)?
If you live today filling your life with fleshly desires
you will harvest what you plant that is the law of God.
Sowing a life of fleshly desires will only bring about
corruption or spiritual death (1 Corinthians 6:9-10). You
sow; you reap. As someone said. "Ybu cannot sow your
wild oats and pray for a crop failure. There are
consequences to your actions that will live with you for a
lifetime. On the other hand the same law of reaping and
sowing applies to righteousness. Choosing to follow the
Lord will give you many untold blessings in the harvest
of hope. Sow righteousness!

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


the Editor I


"I have grown a garden my whole
life-heck that was the only way we'd
all eat. I remember folks thought that
was so country! Now it's in style."
Loretta Lynn

"What's Country Now" is the title
of an article in the March issue of
Country Living magazine. The article
names 25 things that are "Country
Now" and it turns out that, like Lo-
retta and maybe you, what's country
now is the way I have been living my
entire life.
Number one on the list is repur-
posing the past by using old barn
wood to build picture frames. I had
to laugh. Not only were my parents,
who were farmers, quick to reuse
the boards from an old cow pen, but
my grandfather drove around with a
couple of coffee cans in the back of
his truck full of rusty old nails he had
recovered from some falling down
structure somewhere. If Poppy need-
ed a nail, he would just dig out a rusty
one, lay it on a board, beat it with the
hammer a few times to straighten it
out, and nail, away at some project or
another. I believe that is called repur-
posing now days.
Number two in -the article read
"The latest art craze? Quilting." I
have a couple of old quilts made by
my great-grandmother Dora. Now
I'm pretty 4ure Dora was not think-
ing art when she tirelessly sewed
together wool men's suit samples to
make up a quilt. Dora was probably
thinking about the wind that blew
through the cracks in the wall behind
the head of their bed. Now it's real
stylish to hang quilts on the wall for
art but in her day quilts were about
staying as warm as you could when
our mild Florida winters dipped into
the 20's and the dish pan next to the
hand pump on the back porch froze
over and the only heat was a fireplace
and if you were real lucky a wood
stove.
Number eight addressed how peo-
ple are beginning to use clotheslines
again. Enough said.
Number nine was about old seeds
and how this new company was
bringing back heirloom gardening
seeds. Our family has enjoyed heir-
loom seeds for years. My mother has
saved seeds for as long as I can re-
member. In fact she recently turned
82, and just the other day she called
me to say, "I've just planted some
pepper seeds so I'll have you some
pepper plants ready pretty soon." She
went on to tell me the seeds came
from some peppers my brother found
a year or two back. Oh yeah, these
peppers are the kind you make pep-
per sauce with. Come to think of it,
this article did not mention making
your own pepper sauce. I wonder if
they know what that is.
Number 20 was about making pie
crust and pies from scratch. From
scratch cooking, yeah, we know
about that too.
Number 21 was entitled "Preserv-
ing a lost art." Well, preserving jams
and jellies has sure made a come back
in recent years. My friend Donna
Jones graced me with a jar of Carrot
Cake Jam that was so good I licked
the jar clean. I wonder if Donna real-
izes she is preserving a lost art or does
she just know that "homemade" is a
whole lot better than "store bought?"
A few pages over in the magazine I
found an article about a young family
from the city going on a "Haycation"
to an Illinois farm. The writer talks
about her children collecting eggs
on the farm and how she had sliced
tomatoes for her salad that were still
warm from the sun and were picked
by hand--her 4 year old's hand. It
turns out that there are farms all over
the country offering a farmstay vaca-
tion. Now don't get me wrong; I think
this is a wonderful idea; people need

to know where their food comes from
and how much work it takes to get it
there. But my late father sure would
have gotten a laugh out of people va-
cationing on a farm.
This new edition of Country Liv-
ing didn't let me down. As always I
truly enjoyed reading it from cover to
cover.
Speaking of being country, which
I've come to realize lately is really
cool, or as Loretta said, "Now in
style," I had a conversation with a
couple about the hogs we killed last
weekend.
It went something like this. She
said, "Now how do you want these
ribs cut? Do you want them left in a
strip or cut up individually to fry?"
I said, "Lawdy, I sure.do love some
fried ribs. But I'll just cut them apart
if we decide to fry them and not put
them on the grill." Then I said, "By
the way, do you have any of that good
bacon?"
The woman's husband said, "No,
but I'll have some by the end of the
week."
I said, "Good, give me four
pounds."
He asked, "Do you want it sliced
thick or thin? Do you want the skin
left on or taken off?"
I said, "Slice it thick and leave the
rind on; I Idve to chew on that old
fried bacon rind; it reminds me of
eating cracklin's."
He said, "Watch out now your
country is showing."
Yeah, that's me, I'm a whole lot
country, and as it turns out, now in
style.
Our turnips in the garden are about
gone, but over the weekend I salvaged
just enough to make the following
casserole. Now, if the turnips would
have been a little younger and a little
less stringy this casserole would have
been better. The flavor was all there,
so if you still have good turnips give
it a try.




6 cups thinly sliced turnips
1 medium sweet onion, sliced
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup half and half
cup milk
1 teaspoon seasoning salt
3 eggs lightly beaten
stick butter, melted
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 sleeve Ritz crackers, crushed
3 tablespoons butter
If the turnips are big quarter them
before slicing. In a medium sauce
pan put enough water to cover the
turnips and onions. Add the salt and
cook over medium heat, covered, un-
til tender. Drain well and set aside.
Next melt butter in pan and add
flour. Cook over medium heat until
golden brown and bubbly. Slowly add
the half and half and milk, whisking
the entire time. Whisk until smooth,
then add seasoning salt. Cook until
sauce comes to a slow boil and thick-
ens., Remove from heat.
In a bowl, beat the eggs with a
fork and add melted butter, sugar,
and pepper. Then add a tablespoon
of the cream sauce to the egg mixture
at a time until you have added about
5 tablespoons of cream sauce, then
mix in the rest. (By adding the hot
cream sauce a little at a time to the
eggs it will keep the eggs from cook-
ing) Then add the drained turnips and
onion and mix. Pour into a greased
casserole dish. Top casserole with
crushed crackers and place butter cut
into pieces all over the top.

Flip Wilson in the 1970's, is most of-
ten used as a "tongue-in-cheek" ad-
mission of guilt. without really hav-
ing to accept responsibility for our
actions. This means, "Yes, I did what
you are accusing me of...but no, it's
not my fault!" The idea that the devil
could "make" us do something would
be a scary thought...if it were true.
Nowhere in tie Bible do we find that
Satan has the power to make you and
me do anything...but we can see that
he is an accomplished fisherman:
"But each one is tempted when,
by his own evil desire, he is dragged
away and enticed. Then after desire
has conceived, it gives birth to sin;
and sin, when it is full grown, gives
birth to death." James 1:4-5
The goal of any good fisherman
is to catch the fish. In the original
Greek translation, the word "enticed"
means bait. Makes sense...bait is
used to entice. What Satan knows is
that what is true for fish is also true
for people. Not all bait entices all
fish...but sooner or later you will hit
upon bait that your intended fish will
bite. This is where our evil desires
come in...determined by our envi-


ronment, heritage, and our own sin
nature, certain bait will be enticing to
me, while other "fish" may be able to
swim past without a second glance...
and vice versa.
According to these verses, the for-
mula for sin involves three ingredi-
ents...bait, our evil desires, and con-
ception. Conception is the moment
of decision to bite the bait...thinking
you are about to get something really
wonderful...and all along the hook
is waiting. Understand that simply
being attracted to the bait isn't sin.

Biting the bait is what gives birth to
sin. and unless there is an interrup-
tion of the process. the fish is going
in the frying pan...because sin leads
to death.
Our best option is to learn how
to stay clear of the bait that has al-
ready enticed us in the past. and to
make sure we are on the lookout for
a hook under that "too-good-to-be-
true" or the "no-one-will-know" bait
dangling in front of us. Following
after bait drags us far away from our
marriage vows, our health, our obedi-
ence to our parents, and our devotion
to God.
If you find yourself hooked by sin,
I want to remind you that the path
you are on leads to one destination...
death. Perhaps the death will be of
trust, respect, your reputation, your
marriage and family, your health...
perhaps your life. Removing the
hook is a painful process, and not
something that we can do alone...at
times we all need encouragement,
direction and accountability to keep
us off the hook. Hmmm, maybe this
is why Jesus calls his disciples to be
fishers of men...
Because Every Heart Matters,
Angie


Bronson Speedway Re-opening


By Young Unlimited Inc.
Bronson Speedway, formerly
known as Bronson Motor Speedway
in Bronson, has been purchased by
Young Unlimited Inc, and is sched-
uled to reopen in March, 2011 after
sitting silent for over a year. The
3/8ths-mile high banked oval is look-
ing to host various divisions of racing
during the 2011 season, including a
focus on INEX-sanctioned Legends
Cars and possible Bandoleros.
Chris and Ann Young, owners of
Young Unlimited Inc., purchased the
track from former racer Mike Cope
at the beginning of February, and
received the keys to the facility on
Wednesday, February 9, 2011.
While we need to clean up the fa-
cility and make sure everything is up
to speed, "Mike Cope did a great job
with the improvements to this track
when he owned it," said Ann Young.
"From the catch fence to the bath-
rooms, everything says class." When


we get everything cleaned up and
ready, this is going to be a top-notch
facility everyone will enjoy coming
to."
The Young family is not strangers
to racing themselves. The New York
natives are well known at Riverhead
Raceway as Chris Young Sr. races
NASCAR Modified full season,
while their son Chris Jr. races Legend
Cars in the Semi- Pro division. That
experience being a racer will lend it-
self to providing a great atmosphere
for fans and drivers alike.
"We want everyone to come to a
place to race with class," said Ann
Young. "We want to bring back the
old days of racing where everyone
came to the track to have fun."
Ann Young told LegendsNation.
com that they are looking to incorpo-
rate various local divisions they have
had at the track in the past as well as
Late Model division and INEX-sanc-
tioned Legend Cars. Bandoleros are


also a possibility once they determine
how well they will be able to race at
the track. Also the track might enter-
tain touring Modified or Late Models
in the future.
While a firm opening date hasn't
been set, Ann Young told LN that
they are looking towards the middle
to late March to have cars on the
track, which is located 15 miles from
Gainesville, for feature racing.
The Young family is scheduling
an Open House "Meet and. Greet" at
the track on Saturday, February 19,
from 1 p.m.-5 p.m. for those that are
in the area and want to check out the
facilities. The track address is 9950
NE State Rd 24, Bronson, FL 32621.
A new website will be in the works
shortly, but interested parties can
contact Ann Young at bmsowner@
aol.com or call Barry Palifka at 540-
239-2807.
Be part of the action as a New
Chapter begins in the history of
........Bronson Speedway.

TANGIBLE PERSONAL PROPERTY

INFORMATION
This form answers some common questions taxpayers have concerning Tangible
Personal Property. In addition, it provides information that will help you file an accurate
and timely tax return.

Questions Most Frequently Asked About Tangible Personal Property


Q. What is Tangible Personal Property?
A. Tangible Personal Property is everything other than real
estate that has value by itself. It would include things such as
furniture, fixtures, tools, machinery, household appliances.
signs, equipment, leasehold improvements, supplies, leased
equipment and any other equipment used in a business or to earn
income.
Q. Who must file?
A. Anyone in possession of assets on January I who has either
a proprietorship, partnership, corporation or is a self-employed
agent or contractor, must file each year. Property owners who
lease, lend or rent property must also file.
Q. Why must I file a return?
A. Florida Statutes 193.052 requires that all tangible personal
property be reported each year to the Property Appraiser's
office. If you receive a return, it's because our office has
determined that you may have property to report. If you feel the
form is not applicable, return it with an explanation. Either way.
the form MUST be returned. Failure to receive a Personal
Property Tax Return (DR-405) does not relieve you of your
obligation to tile.
Q. How can I obtain this form?
A. At the beginning of the year a return is mailed to Tangible
Personal Propert owners. If you do not get one. contact the
Property Appraiser's Office.
Q. What if I have no assets to report? Do I still have to file a
return?
A. Yes, if you feel you do not have anything to report, till out
items I through 9 on the return, and attach an explanation of
\why nothing was reported. However, almost all businesses and
rental units have some assets to report even ifit is only supplies.
rented equipment or household goods.
Q. IfI am no longer in business, should I still file the return?
A. Yes. ifyou ere not in business on January I of the taxing
year. follow this procedure:

3) Hase your signature notarized.
4) Mail the return back to this office.
Q. What is an office or field review assessment?
A. When a tax return is not filed by April I we are required to
place an assessment on the property. This assessment represents
an estimate based on the value of business with similar
equipment and assets. Being assessed does not alleviate your
responsibility% to tile an accurate return.
Q. What if I don't agree with the assessed salue that appears on
the notice of proposed property taxes that I receive in
August of each year?
A. Call this office or come in and discuss the matter w nh us. If
)ou hae cidence that the appraised alue is more than the
actual fair market value of your property. e a\ ill welcome the
opportunity to review all the pertinent facts.

Q. What if I buy or sell an existing business during the year Who is
responsible for the taxes?
A. The new owner is responsible, however if there is insufficient
property to satisfy the taxes due. the owner on January I would be responsible for
the difference. Most title companies do not do a search of the tangible assets of a
business. You should therefore consult sour realtor, attorney or closing agent to
avoid problems in this area.
Q. What if I receive more than one tax return?
A. All returns must be sent back. Ifyou have more than one
location, the assets of each should be listed separately on each return.

written off the books?
A. Whether fully depreciated in your accounting records or
not. all propertN still in use or in your possession should be reported.
Q. Do I have to report assets that I lease, loan. rent, borrow or are
provided in the rent?
A. Yes. there is an area on the return specifically for those
assets. Eent though the assets are assessed to the owner. they must be listed
for international purposes.

THS Drama club

presents "Seussical

the musical"
By Kathy Porter
"We're having a party! It's plain
as can be! I want you to celebrate
with me! The Cat will be there along
with the Fish, Horton and Sam, the
2- Things and we wish that you would
come too!"
Dr. Seuss books
The Trenton Drama Club echoes
the words: "We wish that you would
come too!" The cast has been select-
ed and rehearsals have begun for the
production of "Seussical," a light-
hearted fun packed musical which
will be. presented May 19-21 at
Trenton Elementary.
The Master of Ceremonies is none
other than The Cat in the Hat (Levi
Sprague), who tells the story of Hor-
ton (Ben Jones), an elephant who
discovers a speck of dust containing
Whos. One of these Whos is Jojo,
(Rachel Perryman), a Who child sent
off to a butter battling military school
for thinking too many "thinks." The
school's leader is General Genghis
Khan Schmitz (Brandon Porter).
Horton has problems with the rest
of the animal kingdom because of his
attention to the speck of dust and his
"loitering" care of Mayzie LaBird's
egg. Mayzie LaBird (Rebekah Man-
beck) leaves Horton with the egg.
Bird girls are played by Saman-
tha Pipes, Adrianna Molnar, Kylie
Johnson, Jennifer DeLong, Spencer
Hewitt, and Elizabeth Avila.
Two of the characters, Gertrude
McFuzz (Emmily Goettsche ), longs
for Horton's attention; while JoJo,
uses his "thinks" to save them all.
The mayor of Whoville (Janie
Beckelheimer) has ninety-nine obe-
dient daughters and one wayward
son, Jojo the free thinker.
Sponsors are needed to help fund
the production. Donations and ads
can be sent to Krista Perryman at
Trenton Elementary, 352-453-3224
or John Yencho at Trenton Middle/
High School.

dies come back to great weather, we
are busy. Dorothy Riggs. El\ena Da-

but time changes many things. There.
have been years when they come and'
quilt one or two quilts while here
but like a lot of us, we can't do the
many things we used to do. It is great
to have them with us this year. It's
great to be able to visit and talk of old-
times. We have had many quilters.
out here in the years since we started;
and we wonder where the years have
gone. Welcome Home, ladies.
Our bus is full and we look for-

our quilts and crafts in, which makes

Sheriff warns: Beware of


local scam artists


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Trenton man answered the knock
at his door last Sunday afternoon and
found an 18-year-old trying to sell
bogus magazine subscriptions.
According to the teenager the man
could purchase a magazine subscrip-
tion that would be sent to a local chil-
dren's hospital or a VA hospital. The
Trenton man did not suspect that the
teenager at his door was a fraud until
the young man said that annual sub-
scriptions ranged from $50 to $220.
The teen reportedly explained that
he was selling the subscriptions be-
cause he was taking part in some kind
of contest and if he earned the most
points then it would allow him to get
a college scholarship.
"He was very convincing," the
Trenton man explained later. "He told
me that his parents gave him up and
his grandparents raised him. He said


he was extremely poor and trying to
rise above so he could set a good ex-
ample for his younger brother."
While the Trenton man did not
give the teenager any money for a
subscription, he reported being un-
nerved by just how much money the
teenager had collected from residents
all over Trenton, which was clearly
visible in a light colored folder the
teenager carried.
According to Gilchrist County
Sheriff Daniel Slaughter, this type of
scam is not a new one and each year
about this time scams increase in the
area. Sheriff Slaughter said that one
of his deputies who lives in Fanning
Springs reported a similar situation
occurring at his home.
It's hard to know who to trust this
day and age, and residents are urged
to use extreme caution when giving
money to strangers.


Careless driver has no license or insurance


Slow and steady wins the race.
That's the lesson many learn at an
early age from the children's story of
the tortoise and the hare.
On March 5, 2011, would-be tor-
toises and hares can put the lesson
into practice at the third annual Race
the Tortoise 5k run/walk at 8 a.m. at
O'Leno State Park, about six miles
north of High Springs, FL on U.S.
Hwy. 441.
The certified race course is run
along the park's scenic paved main
road, and all entrants receive a much-
admired "turtle-enhanced" T-shirt.
Prize money for Overall and Mas-
ters Winners setting course records is


provided by Friends of O'Leno, Inc.,
the Park's Citizen Support Organiza-
tion and race host.
First, second, and third place fin-
ishers in each age group receive spe-
cial "Tortoise Trophies."
Proceeds from the race will help
the Park buy an audio/visual system
for training and education and pro-
vide for the creatures in its Nature
Center.

tion, see: www.floridastateparks.

about the race.
The entry fee for those age 14 and
younger is $10; for all others $20
through February 15, 2011, and $25
after this date through race day on
March 5, 2011. Entry to the park is

Wee Miss Trenton Queen Harper Adkins; Emma Brideson, Overall
Beauty Winner; and Baby Miss Trenton Queen Addilynn Welbers
with her mother, Cayti Welbers.


Submitted
The 14th Annual Miss Trenton
Pageant was held on Saturday, Feb-
ruary 12.
Due to the great participation we
have had in the past, we ended up
having to break the pageant into two
sessions. The first session was our
0-4 year olds. We had 17 beautiful
girls participate. The winners were
as follows:
Baby Miss Trenton--Queen, Best
Dressed, and Most Photogenic was


Addilynn Welbers; 1st runner up was
Lila Mae Walker, and our 2nd runner
up was Kinsley Williams.
Wee Miss Trenton--Queen and
Best Dressed was Harper Adkins, 1st
runner up was Zaharra Bell; 2nd run-
ner up and Most Photogenic was Laci

SVL Blue Wolves are Soccer Champs


Submitted by Rayanne Ferguson
Meet the SVL Blue Wolves and
hear them howl! If you haven't heard
about this blue and orange team, you
haven't been keeping up with the lo-
cal soccer families. They are excited.
The Blue Wolves, a team of 7-9 year
old boys and girls, formed one awe-
some pack and played a few really
awesome games. The Blue Wolves
sponsored by Gainesville Dermatol-
ogy are undefeated and now carry the
title of 2010 SVL Soccer Champs in
their category. This was certainly no
easy task in earning this title though.
It was teamwork all the way. The
wolves were up against great teams
each week. All the teams got stron-
ger and tougher every time they
played. It was amazing how quickly
this age group learned the different
techniques. It was obvious that 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 have had several
freezing nights, it did not slow us
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 hard-
er, make another point, howl a little
louder, and so on. The kids would
absolutely come off the field wiping
sweat, using our big coats and blan-
kets 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
our 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 grassy fields mak-
ing room for the basketball and the
indoor courts. If ever you are inter-
ested, SVL is there for all the youth
in our community who want to par-
ticipate.


Little Miss Trenton Queen Sydney Bryant; Jr. Miss Trenton Sali Pow-
ers; Pre-Teen Miss Trenton Queen Rachel Perryman. Teen Miss Tren-
ton Queen and Overall Beauty Winner Kelsey Cox; and Miss Trenton
Queen Ashley Cribbs.
Most Photogenic was Ainslee Wel- was Rachel Perryman; 1st runner up

Gamble; 3rd runner up was Maleigha son; 2nd runner up and Most Photo-

The next session was the ages of Teen Miss Trenton--Queen, Best

ladies who participated. The win- all Beauty was Kelsey Cox; 1st run-

into the economy while spending two
to three months in the area each year.
He encouraged the crowd of business
professionals gathered to consider the
boost thousands of sea kayakers vis-

With a big smile on his face. Larry
Shannon revved up the motor on his
red 1959 Massey Ferguson Model
MF-65 tractor and led the way as the
2011 Antique Tractor Parade got un-
derway on Saturday, Feb. 5.
A resident of Bell, Shannon also
serves as president of the North Flor-
ida Antique Tractor Club. Now over
70 members strong, the club grew
from farm equipment collectors who
gathered each year to display their
tractors at the Newberry Lions Club
Farm Toy Show.
Despite cold, rainy weather on
Saturday, tractor enthusiasts gath-
ered once again at Oak View Middle
School in Newberry to see restored
tractors, including John Deere,
Farmall, Ford, Allis Chalmers, Min-
neapolis-Moline and Case. The num-
ber of antique tractors on display this
year was down by 25 percent because
of the bad weather. An estimated 500
people wandered inside the school's
cafeteria to see thousands of toy trac-
tors set up by 40 exhibitors. Toy trac-
tors ranged in age, size, and color.
While young children were anxious to
take the toy tractors off the tables and
play, their fathers looked on antique
toy tractors and shared fond memo-
ries of playing with this one or that
one when they were a child. The 19th
Annual Farm Toy Show and Antique
Tractor Parade raised nearly $3,000
for the Newberry Lions Club. Mon-
ies raised will go to support Florida
based Lions Club foundations.
