Residents thankful, road will stay open


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
listened to residents of the Jennings
Lake community and people who at-
tend the Jennings Lake Seventh Day
Adventist Church ask that portions of
SW 22nd Court and SW 45th Street
not be closed.
Pastor Anthony Crawford told the
commissioners that the road is used
by people going to the Jennings Lake


Church and cemetery, and asked that
the road not be closed.
A large group of residents who use
this road had circulated a petition to
have the road remain open. The peti-
tion had an estimated 75 signatures
from Gilchrist County residents who
didn't want the road closed.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas an-,
nounced that attorney John McPher-
son had recommended Thomas ab-


stain from being involved in this
vote.
Commissioner Thomas reported
that he is employed with Piedmont
Farms and they are one of the prop-
erty owners that are identified on the
application to close the roads.
'Jackie Barron, one of three Barron
brothers that signed the application to
close the road, told the board that his
brother Sandy was not in attendance


at Monday's meeting.
"He is the one that wanted the road
closed to reduce traffic in the area; I
don't have a dog in this fight," Bar-
ron said.
Many of the commissioners re-
ceived communication from county
residents and property owners in-
volving this issue. The Jennings Lake
residents who were against the clos-
ing of the road had a good attendance


sitting in the county commission
meeting.
Robert Gay, a resident of Gilchrist
County, asked the board if the road
is closed and high water floods the
main route coming into the area from
US 129, what will be an alternate
route of travel for people living in
this area.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
said, "With this many people against


the closing of these roads, I'm not go-
ing to be in favor of closing them."
'Commission Chairman Randy
Durden asked the commission what
the pleasure of the board was. The
commissioners then decided that if
they took no action, the application
to close the road would fail.
The audience was pleased when
the board ultimately took no action
on this application.

River on Saturday night.


Woman leaving bar


drives into river


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Gainesville woman escaped in-
jury late Saturday night after driving
her car off into the Santa Fe River,
shortly after leaving Ellie Ray's bar.
Leah Renee Enninson, 37, of
Gainesville, was reportedly able to
roll down the window of her vehicle
and swim out shortly after the 2005
Honda went into the dark water.
According to Major Tony Smith of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
Enninson was leaving the parking lot
around 11 p.m. when she incorrectly


turned north and drove into the river
rather, than out of thi parking lot and
onto 110th Street.
Enninson walked back to the bar
soaking wet and shortly thereafter
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's. Office
was called out. According to Smith,
four divers from the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Office dive team worked
until nearly 4 a.m. to get the vehicle,
which had floated some 300 feet
downstream, out of the river.
No charges were filed in this ac-
cident.

Character Counci' Personality of the Month


By Geneva Cornwell
Boldness, the character trait for
this month, claims as its definition:
"Confidence that what I have to say
or do is true, .right, and just."
The first step to boldness is know-
ing what is true, right, and just--
things that stand regardless of popu-
lar opinion.
The second step to boldness is act-
ing upon those principles. In pur-
posing to demonstrate boldness one
must not be afraid to speak the truth,,
keep a clear conscience; support oth-
ers when they are right, be willing to
stand alone, and lastly, speak with
humility. tls s-- s ario u',
,,Bol'dness impl,..daring, courage,-


and confidence. Rather than going
with the flow, boldness goes against
the tide. It dares to disagree with
popular opinion for the sake of af-
firming what is true, right, and just.
When others do wrong, boldness
stands for what is right. Every per-
son searches for things, people, or
ideas in which to find stability and
security. Truth, right, and justice, on
the other hand, provide a foundation
which has remained far more stable
throughout history than has opinion,
popularity, and abundance.
Rev. Keith McConnell, Pastor of
Trenton First Baptist, some three
years ago arrived on the scene from
Tennessee., by, way of Virginia, his


home state. Pastor Keith believes
that without boldness he would not
be able to present the gospel' in all
its truthfulness: He feels that it took
all the boldness the Lord gave him to
lead the church members in opening
up First Place Academy, a Christian
School with the church as its um-
brella covering. "Forging ahead with
no immediate available funds," he
says, "has brought so much joy, for
it is always best to choose to do the
right thing as one allows the Lord to
lead."
Pastor McConnell explained,
"Boldness is not something that is
innate. It is something learned, and
while doing so, the person of boldness
must learn to keep pressing onward,
for boldness is something which is of
God and comes from God." McCon-
nell shared his favorite Scripture pas-
sage which corres from Joshua 1:8-9:-
"This book of the law shall not depart
out of thy mouth; but thou shalt med-
itate therein day and night, that thou
mayest observe to do according to all
that is written therein: for then tltbu
shalt make thy way prosperous, and
then thou shalt have good success."
As we have'looked into the char-
acter quality of boldness it presents
itself with a quality of daring, char-
acterized by confidence. Courage,
bravery, and fortitude are assets
which are fueled by boldness. Stand-
ing on principle requires boldness.
In our day and time we need leaders
who will take a stand and boldly de-
clare their position on a matter.

Ron St. John, a dairy producer
whose operation is based in Gilchrist
County, has claimed the title of 2011
Swisher Sweets/Sunbelt Ag Expo
Florida Farmer of the Year. He will
now compete against nine other state
winners for the prestigious South-
eastern Farmer of the Year award to
be announced in the fall.
A Gilchrist County Farm Bu-
reau member, St. John has pursued
his calling as a dairy farmer since
he returned to his family farm after
earning a B.S. degree in agricultural
economics from Cornell University.
He now maintains large dairy herds
in both Florida and Georgia, totaling
more than 15,000 animals. In addi-
tion, the farm venture produces a
substantial volume of corn and sor-
ghum for silage, ryegrass, oats and
Bermuda grass.
His business, launched with 67
cows, now includes a feed distribu-
torship, a farm supply and hardware
outlet and a steel roofing and wooden
truss manufacturing company.
"Our non-farm enterprises allow
us to be vertically integrated," St.
John said. "This has allowed us to
be more competitive by containing
input cost."
He attributes his success to his


Ron St. John


family's support as well as his own
thorough understanding of the finan-
cial aspects of the operation and the
relationships he has built with suppli-
ers and his employees.
"Your vendors need to be paid
timely and at a profitable level for
their businesses," he explained.
"Your employees must work in an
environment where their best interest
and your best interest are met togeth-
er as a team."
St. John and his wife, Marcia, call
Trenton their hometown.

The Song Of The Bow
(Kent Heaton)


The relationship between Saul and David began with
a great love for one another and ended tragically for
both. The Lord had rejected Saul as king because of
disobedience, rebellion and pride choosing rather the
son of Jesse to be king. David would play for the king
when Saul's-heart was troubled (1 Samuel 16:14-23)
and the two became dear friends. Following the killing
of Goliath, the feelings of resentment and pride changed
the relationship of Saul towards David.
A division of resentment began when returning from
the slaughter of the Philistines, the people sang, "Saul
has slain his thousands, and David his ten
thousands." Then Saul was very angry, and the saying
displeased him; and he said, "They have ascribed to
David ten thousands, and to the they have ascribed
only thousands. Now what more can he have but the
kingdom?" So Saul eyed David from that day forward.
And it happened on the next day that the distressing
spirit from God came upon Saul, and he prophesied
inside the house. So David played music with his
hand, as at other times; but there was a spear in Saul's
hand. And Saul cast the spear, for he said, "I will pin
David to the wall!" But David escaped his presence
twice" (1 Samuel 18:6-11). From that day Saul tried
killing David (1 Samuel 19:1)
Throughout the years David would have to protect
himself from the constant pursuit of Saul's death
threats. In 1 Samuel 31 the historian describes the tragic
end of Saul and his sons. The Philistines killed
Jonathan, Abinadab, and Malchishua. When Saul,
himself wounded by archers, saw the tide of battle
against him, pled with his armor bearer to kill him. The
armor bearer refused and Saul "took a sword and fell
on it" (1 Samuel 31:4). At first glance the reader would

Ayers Health and Rehab
Sometime ago I read in the
Gilchrist Journal that Ayers Health
and Rehabilitative Center was No. 1
in the state.
Well, I found out first hand, just
how they got this high rating. I had
the need of their services (thank the
Lord they had a vacancy). I want
everyone to know when I was trans-
ported from the hospital to the Ayers
Center, there was a group of staff and
patients, also my wonderful daughter
Sally waiting to greet me. That was
just the beginning of the love and
caring they showed me for the time
I was there.
Some other ways why they are No.
1: is the housekeeping group. They
are always cleaning, buffing, etc. I
believe Margaret Mills is the leader of
this group. Another area is the kitch-
en team really knows how to cook


and you can have all you want to eat
and being an old gal, I like my coffee
just so. Well, it was just like I make
it at home, (good). They also have a
goodie cart that visits our rooms with
cookies, ice cream and more. So if
you want to lose some pounds, you
are in the wrong place.
The rehabilitation service is made
up of great men and women. They
know just what you need to get you
back to good health.
Mrs. Jo Buckles, the Director of
this great center, has a lot of respon-
sibility, but she also has a wonderful
staff to help her.
John, I just want to say thanks to
you and your family. Your dad, J. Min
Ayers, was a kind and caring person.
Thanks to him, we have a great place
to help us when it's most needed.
Thank you
Mary Jones

assume that David would be glad his enemy was dead
but the story continues in the Second book of Samuel.
Three days after the battle where Saul was killed a
young man (an Amalekite) came to David claiming to
have killed Saul. His story was that Saul asked him to
kill him and the young man did so, taking the crown
and bracelet from Saul to present to David. Upon
hearing the news, David tore his clothes with mourning
and weeping and fasting until evening (2 Samuel 1:11).
The young man thought he would bring good news but
brought rather his own death sentence. David said to
him, "How was it you were not afraid to put forth your
hand to destroy the Lord's anointed" (2 Samuel 1:14)?.
With that David had the young man executed.
In his lamentation David wrote a song titled the Song
of the Bow (2 Samuel 1:17-27). The marvelous
character of David is heard in the mournful tones of the
words describing the "anointed" of God who died.
"The beauty of Israel is slain on your high places!
How the mighty have fallen" (vl9). The shepherd king
describes Saul and Jonathan as "beloved and pleasant
in their lives" (v23) He implores the "daughters of
Israel" to "weep over Saul" (v24). The song concludes
with the sadness of the "mighty" who have fallen
(vv25,27).
In the Song of the Bow David shows us the mercy
and grace of God. The song presents the love of
forgiveness. Although Saul destroyed his life by his
pride David still recognized the king as the "Lord's
anointed" or chosen of God. David loved Saul deeply
and was sorrowful that Saul ruined his life. David sang
the Song of the Bow to remind all Israel that God will
be glorified in the lives of His anointed.

COOKING AND


"There ain't nothing' like a piece
o'caliker for bringing' back old times,
child."--From Aunt Jane of Ken-
tucky, by Eliza Calvert Hall, pub-
lished in 1908.
I ran away a quilting last. week.
Carrie and Allie Claire came along to
keep me company, and the girls made
a little trip to Dollywood or as Allie
calls it, "Gollywood." While I was
quilting away, the girls headed over
to spend Wednesday at Dollywood.
Allie loved it; she came back sport-
ing a straw cowgirl hat with all kinds
of tall tales about her big day spent
riding every ride a 2-year-old is al-
lowed to ride.
Lately, I've had this bee in my
bonnet about handpiecing a quilt. For
those of you who are not into quilt-
ing, handpiecing is sewing the little
pieces that make up a quilt square to-
gether with just a needle and thread.
Handpiecing was the method used
before sewing machines were made.
I know what you are thinking. I
have a perfectly good sewing ma-
chine in my sewing room and why in
the world would I-become interested
in handpiecing? Well, to tell you the
truth I'm just such a history buff that
I truly wanted to learn the skill. I
learned the basics a year or so ago,
then I heard about this lady, Cindy
Blackberg, who holds a handpiec-
ing retreat called Hand Work in the
Smokies in Townsend, Tennessee,
and after reading about it I was deter-
mined to attend. So after a little shuf-
fling and help from a few folks, we
headed for the beautiful mountains of
Tennessee last Monday afternoon.
The retreat was held at the Tally Ho
Inn, which had recently undergone a
complete remodeling. The American
owned and operated inn was great;
the people were extra nice. Some
28 or so quilters showed up ready to
learn and have a good time. Ladies
from as far away as Vermont and
Michigan came along with several
gals from South Carolina, Georgia,
North Carolina, Ohio and Tennessee
of course. I believe I was the only one
from Florida.
I've read so much about the his-
tory of quilts and tried to learn all the
nearly lost skills of quilters from long
ago that John is beginning to wonder
if I'm planning on planting cotton
soon so I can back up to the point
where quilters from long ago hand
combed their own cotton batting.
We had a wonderful time and our
teacher was great. I learned a lot and
improved my skill a great deal. One
of the highlights for me was visiting
Pappy's Quilt Shop in Maryville. I
could not help but go, after reading
the directions from Townsend, to the
shop. The directions went something
like this, "Follow Helton Road around
and over a little one way bridge,


(Yes, you will think this surely can't
be the way, but it is!) Bear right at
the fork in the road where there is a
little white church and a tree. (Hon-
est, there is a tree in the middle of the
road.)" With directions like that there
was no way Carrie and I were miss-
ing this trip through the Tennessee
countryside. The very best parts of
a trip are the winding back roads as
far as I am concerned. Have you ever
noticed how much beautiful country
you can see while lost? Needless to
say we had a wonderful time.
On our way home we stopped by
the Dillard House to eat and it was
wonderful as always. (OK, so I know
the Dillard is not on our way home;
let's just say Carrie and I always de-
tour for good food.) We stopped by
the Cabbage Patch Hospital in Cleve-
land, Georgia, to let Allie pick out her
first Cabbage Patch doll; and she was
beside herself with so many dolls to
choose from.'
The last stop of our trip was made at
Stripling's General Store in Cordelle
to pick up a few of their pork prod-
ucts. You know Stripling's is hard to
beat when it comes to hog. I brought
home three pounds of the prettiest
smoked bacon you ever saw, which
inspired me to make the following
recipe for corn chowder. There is
no better time of year to make corn
chowder with all the fresh corn and
wonderful new potatoes right out of
the garden.



12 ears of fresh corn, shucked, and
silked
cup chopped smoked thick sliced
bacon
cup minced onions
cup minced celery
2 cups diced red potatoes
teaspoon black pepper
water
1 cup half and half
2 tablespoons fresh parsley if you
have it
Grate 6 ears of corn off the cob
(like for cream style cpm). Cut the
corn off the other six ears with a
sharp knife. Be sure to scrape all the
ears well with a knife to collect all
the corn juice possible. Set' all the
corn aside.
Fry bacon in frying pan, add on-
ion and celery and saute slowly until
tender over medium-low heat.. Add
potatoes, salt, pepper and just enough
water to cover potatoes. Cook until
potatoes are tender, about 10 min-
utes. Do not drain. Add corn, half and
half, and stir until heated through.
You may want to add just a pinch of
red pepper. Garnish with a teaspoon
of fresh parsley sprinkled on top of
chowder after it's in the bowl. Serve
with hot corn bread.

Pray they never fall.

Fore they are our first defense,

Swinging for a cure I


Hunter, left, and Austin Allen, right, share a brotherly hug..


Submitted
In 2008, when their soni was just
nine weeks old, Austin Allen's par-
ents, Natasha and Patrick Allen, got
the devastating news that he had
cancer.
Thoughts racing, they wondered
how he would survive such a rare
diagnosis as Infantile Acute My-
eloid Leukemia. A study drug was
offered. They accepted. After five
grueling rounds of chemotherapy,
Austin emerged from Shands at
the University of Florida at seven
months old in complete remission.
While Austin was in treatment,
his Aunt, Karrie Munkittrick, and
cousins walked in his honor at the
Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's
Light the Night walk to raise money
and awareness for blood cancers.
Later, learning that the study drug
doctors have said, "made all the
difference" was researched, devel-
oped and funded by the Leukemia
and Lymphoma Society (LLS), the
Aliens committed to giving back.


Last year, Austin's Warriors was
the top family and friends fund-
raiser, raising even more than all
corporate teams for the LLS in the
Gainesville walk.
This year, the goals are higher;
the Austin's Warriors plan tq raise
$12,000.
Their first fundraising event will
be held on May 28 at the Chiefland
Golf and CountryClub. The Swing-
ing for a Cure Tournament will be a
three-man scramble with cash prizes
being awarded.
To register for the event or for
more information, contact Natasha

.Heart Matters
In the last few years, Mother's Day
has become one of those emotional,
cry-at-the-drop-of-the-hat holidays
for me. I have heard that the older
we get, the more tenderhearted we
become. I think it is because the
more we live, the more our hearts
get tenderized...That being said, I'm
thinking of volunteering this year for
the poster child of that concept...
I sat on my front porch' early on
Mother's Day morning thinking of
what motherhood has brought into
my life this year...one son moving
away to college, my daughter turning
16 and getting a job AND a driver's
license, my oldest son preparing to
marry, and adding a new daughter to
our family through adoption. I think
I need a nap just thinking about it all
at once...or maybe just a good cry.
Because while each of these thing are
worthy of celebration, they also rep-
resent some mighty big changes for
our family... and change is hard on
the heart.
As I was thinking on all these
things, the Lord directed me to a fa-
miliar scripture in Matthew 5:14-15:
"You are the light of the world. A
city on a hill cannot be hidden. Nei-
ther do people light a lamp and put it
under a bowl. Instead they put it on
its stand, and it gives light to every-
one in the house." (italics mine)
I memorized this portion of Jesus'
Sermon on.the Mount years ago, but


Pleasant Hill Baptist
Church holds yard sale
Pleasant Hill Baptist Church will
be holding a church yard sale on Sat-
urday, May 21 and Saturday, May 28
from 8-5 p.m. There will be all types
of items at the sale.
Pleasant Hill Baptist Church is lo-
cated on County Road 232 in Bell.
If you have any questions, please
call Patty at (352) 542-3408.

I noticed two things for the very first
time. One, the fact that He started the
explanation about an entire city and
ended it with only those in the house,
and two, the light He specifically re-
fers to is a lamp. I think that we can
often get so overwhelmed with all
that is wrong in the world and won-
der how we can impact our "city" and
our community; while all the time we
are called first to shine our light in
our own house...to everyone in the
house: our parents, our spouse, our
children...and their friends, extend-
ed family, friends and guests. We
should consider that our community
is made up of these very people! As a
mom, I asked God to help me put my
light on its stand in my home and not
grow complacent in my treatment of
those closest to me... no matter what
changes we face!
Now for the lamps.. .our culture is
so different than that of Jesus' day.
Obviously, they didn't have the con-
venience of electricity, so perhaps we
picture their lamps like we might light
a candle. The difference is that can-
dles are self-sufficient and they bum
up... and burn out. These lamps, on
the other hand, relied on oil to bum
and had to be continually refilled.
Throughout scripture, oil represents
the working of the Holy Spirit to fuel
(and refuel) us. It is good news that
we were never intended to be self-
sufficient, but to depend on God to
supply the energy and resources we
need to be light in a dark world.. .and
in our own house...
Because 'Every Heart Matters...

Trenton Drama Club presents Seussical the Musical .


The place is here. The time is now.
Cat and elephant have come to town!
Trenton Drama Club presents the
spring musical, Seussical the Musi-
cal, on May 19, 20, and 21 at 7:00
p.m. at the Trenton Elementary Caf-
eteria.
"The students have been working
since December on Seussical, and I
am so proud of each and every one of
them," says Krista Perryman, Direc-
tor of the Trenton Drama Club. Per-
ryman continues, "We are bringing
some new features to our show this
spring, which I feel fit right in with
Dr. Seuss and his over-the-top think-
ing."
Seussical has several seasoned
drama club members in the principal
parts including Juniors Levi. Sprague
as the Cat in the Hat and Master of
Ceremonies and Rebekah Manbeck,
the sassy Mayzie La Bird.
Senior-Ben Jones who plays Horton
the Elephant said, "I never thought I
would end my TDC career as an ele-
phant, but Horton is an elephant with
great courage and enormous heart. I
think many people can relate to his
character, and I think this is why Dr.
Seuss' books have become classics.
The universal truths run through all
of Seuss' worksd, Ih; .......-
Gertrude MoFuzz (Emmily Goett-,
sche) and' JoJo (Rachel Perryinati)
show through their' characters how
friendship can get us all through hard


times. Their songs range from soft
and tender to loud and energetic--
wrapped in Seuss' charm.
From a baby's first Dr. Seuss book,
The Foot Book, presented by local
hospitals to One Fish, Two Fish chil-
dren of all ages fall in love with Seuss'
characters. Seussical is filled with
his characters like the main fish, por-
trayed by Samantha Johnson and the
Sour Kangaroo (Kylie Johnson) and
her Young Kangaroo (Mikeah Rut-
ter). Beautifully costumed Bird Girls
(Adrianna Molnar, Jennifer DeLong,
Penelope Sutiff, Spencer Hewitt,
and Elizabeth Avila) fly through the
scenes or is that dance their way?
Come see the Grinch (Abijah Herrin)
and the Wickersham monkeys (Jacob
Perryman, Abijah Herrin, Kylie Rob-
ertson, and Nathan Frazier) bring Se-
uss fun and craziness to the evening.
A Seuss musical would not be
complete without the Whoville char-
acters led by the Mayor's Wife (Jen-
nifer DeLong), the Mayor (Janie
Beckelheimer),and The Who's (Sa-
mantha Johnson, Ashlynn Schroeder,
Kylie Robertson, Belle Holcombe,
Amanda Barron, Jakerria King, Ki-
erstan Crumpton, Nathan Frazier, Sa-
mantha Saunderss, and Lydia Bend.
Whoville's Military School leader
is General Oenghis Kahnm Schrtite
(Brandon Porter) and his well-trained
cadets who "welcome" JoJo to their
ranks.


As in Dr. Seuss' books the char-
acters are too numerous to count, so
come on May 19, 20, and 21 at 7:00
p.m. to see if your favorite charac-
ter is in the show. Plan on having a
circus of fun each evening as Horton
tries to save Whoville. Tickets are $6
'for adults and $5 for students. Pre-
sold ticket holders will be seated at
6:15 p.m. and all others will be seated
starting at 6:30.
Co-Director John Yencho says,
"Gazebo tickets are still for sale at $5
per ticket or 4 for $20, and they will
be on sale the nights of the shows.
This has been, a great project for
my construction class and for Tren-
ton Drama. Please purchase a ticket
when students approach you with this
fundraising event. Your money helps
us keep the arts ih the classroom."
Sponsors and donations are greatly
needed and appreciated. Please send
your checks to Trenton Drama Club
in care of Krista Perryman, Trenton
Elementary School, 352 463 3224.
Mark your calendars May 19, 20,
and 21 at 7:00 p.m. in the Trenton El-
ementary Cafeteria for an evening of
quirky Seuss costumes, lively dances
and songs, and a barrel of fun. Kids
will get a kick out of this show!

Trenton bank ceCebrates 1oo years of business


By Carrie A. Mizell
The only bank in the area that did
not close during the Great Depres-
sion, Farmers and Merchants Bank,
which now operates as Capital City
Bank, celebrates 100 years of busi-
ness in 2011.
More than 300 customers, present
and former employees, and members
of the community gathered on the
lawn of Capital City Bank in Trenton
on Thursday, May 12 to celebrate the
bank's 100th anniversary. Old friends
and new acquaintances mingled over
catered barbecue as Big Cypress
Bluegrass Band played. Activities for
children were also set up for the oc-
casion.
Rosemarie Curcio, current man-
ager of Capital City Bank Trenton,
called out door prize winners every
hour on the hour, from 4 to 8 p.m.
"The celebration was our way of


saying thank you to the community,"
Curcio said, "and I think we had an
amazing turnout, despite the heat!
People really didn't seem to mind
that it was sweltering hot."
According to Curcio, several bank
clients who attended last week's cel-
ebration said they have banked there
faithfully since the 1950s.
Bill Smith, chairman of the board
for Capital City Bank Group, and
Gene Osteen, longtime president of
Farmers and Merchants Bank, were
special guests at the celebration.
Originally opened on November 9,
1911, Farmers and Merchants Bank
ran an announcement in the Gilchrist
County Journal prior to the first day
of business that read:
"The officers and directors of
Farmers and Merchants Bank Tren-
ton, Florida beg to announce the
opening of the bank for business on


Thursday, November 9, 1911 and
cordially invite you to call at the
bank on that date, whether you open
an account or not. This bank will be
run by the people and in their inter-
est. Every facility offered -by any up-
to-date bank will be in evidence at
our place of business. Our temporary
quarters will be in one of Sanders &
Company's buildings pending the
erection of a modem bank building
for our use."
The announcement was signed Dr.
Orlando S. Clyatt, president; William.
E. Bell, 1st vice president; Chas. A.
Faircloth, 2nd vice president and
Robert C. Lang, cashier.
Farmers and Merchants Bank was
bought out by Capital City Bank
Group .in 1986, though according to
Curcio, it was some years later be-
fore the name of the bank formally
changed to Capital City Bank.

Gee whiz stuff..

Trenton Middle High School teacher Don Barselou told Trenton
Rotarians on Monday that his engineering students are working
on bright, high end projects. From a multi access trainer to an:
electrathon machine that runs 30 to 35 miles per hour and gets 200
miles per gallon of gasoline, the students are constantly working'
to improve their designs. Trenton senior Adam Mount, pictured
above, will be among four students traveling to Tampa this Satur-:
day for a state wide competition.

FUNERAL HOMES



Our family serving your family because'we care!

Serving the Ocala area and surrounding communities for over 100 years.

We can serve our families in the comfort of their own homes,
with their family members by their side to help make decisions.
Because we know how important family is to us.

Our burial packages start at $4,045 with gasketed caskets.

We also offer simple cremation packages which start at $1,200

Since we own our crematories, your loved one will remain in our care
throughout the arrangement process.

We have the ability to provide services within Gilchrist County
to avoid the necessity of travel outside the community.

We will attempt to honor other funeral homes' prearrangements.

Our prearrangement plans are designed to assist your family
in preparing for the future.

We offer several seminars throughout the year, open to the public,
to help you make educated decisions regarding those future plans.

We have been active within Gilchrist County, supporting functions
such as Beast Feast and School sports activities and
donating computer equipment to the Gilchrist County School Board.

Ifyou have questions, please call us at 352-622-4141.
