Teenager in ICU


after weekend fight


at Ginnie Springs


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Jacksonville man was arrested
for aggravated battery Saturday after
a fight broke out at Ginnie Springs
Campground.
Robert A. French, 18, of 7710 Dur-
rance Road in Jacksonville, was ar-
rested and transported to the Gilchrist
County Jail on Saturday evening
and released the following day on a
$10,000 bond.
According to Lt. David Aderholt of
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office,
French's friend, Nicholas E. Curran,
19, also of Jacksonville, was fight-
ing with a person in the road near
Dogwood Springs at Ginnie Springs
Campground. French intervened and
hit the person Curran was struggling
with, using a beer bottle, which caused
severe injury to his own friend.
Curran was taken to Shands Hos-
pital in Gainesville, where he was

Golf carts in Trenton?


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
were told at their May 24 meeting
that an individual has contacted City
Manager Taylor Brown requesting
that driving golf carts within the city
limits of Trenton be made legal.
City Attorney David M. Lang told
the commissioners that the town of
Bell has made it legal to drive golf
carts within the city limits.
Lang went on to say that a study
would have to be done by the Florida
Department of Transportation in re-
gards to the traffic flow and the num-
ber of cars using the streets and where
crossings on US 129 and State Road
26 would be allowed by the state.
The city attorney also told commis-
sioners that the city streets belong to
the city and the commissioners have
to decide if they will allow the use of
golf carts on city streets.
The State of Florida does not al-
low the use of golf carts on their
roads which include US 129, and
State Road 26. But both roads can be
crossed at state designated cart cross-
ings after the proper surveys and pa-
per work is complete and approval is
given by DOT.
State law requires that golf carts
not be operated on public roads or
streets by any person under the age
of 14.
Commissioners were concerned
about policing the use of carts and
safety concerns with the amount of
traffic in Trenton.
Mayor Glen Thigpen and Com-


missioners Randy Rutter and Tim
Kinsey were the only city commis-
sioners at the meeting. All three said
they wanted more information on the
matter before they would proceed
any further.
Taylor Brown said that he would
inform the citizen who requested per-
mission to drive their golf cart on city
streets that they should attend a pub-
lic meeting of the Trenton City Com-
mission and make the request known
to the commissioners.
Other news from the city includ-
ed an application for a Community
Development Block Grant (CDBG)
which hopefully will include a new
sewer lift station near Trenton Apart-
.ments and Ayers Health & Rehabili-
tation Center.
According to the city manager, the
lift station that serves that area of
town needs to be replaced. Over the
past few years, Brown said the city
has spent a lot of money repairing that
lift station. If awarded, the other part
of the CDBG grant could go toward
paving NE 5th Terrace to connect
Pines Estate to Lancaster Street. This
is the area around the old Gro-More,
which is currently a dirt street.
According to Fred Fox of Fred Fox
Enterprises, Trenton is eligible to
apply for $650,000 in CDBG grant
funds and the application cycle opens
on July 1, 2011.
The application is due by August
15, 2011. The first public hearing was
held on May 24, just before the regu-
lar monthly meeting began.

Remembering those who served


By Carrie A. Mizell
With grateful hearts, citizens of
Gilchrist County gathered at the
Meinkri.lT'ourtyard on Monday to
take part in a Memorial Day Remem-
brance program sponsored by the
Gilchrist County Historical Society
and the Veterans Service Office.
After a welcome by Jim Mash,
veterans service officer for Gilchrist
County, Jose Cintron of American
Legion Post 91 prayed just before
members of the Bell High School
JROTC marched in and presented the
nation's colors.
As the flags waved in the gentle
breeze, Joy Silyers sang the National
Anthem.
Clement Lindsey of the Sons of
Confederate Veterans Post 770 then
led the Pledge of Allegiance
Charlotte Pedersen, president of
the Gilchrist County Historical So-
ciety, thanked' everyone for coming
to the Memorial Day service and re-
minded all that the' Historical Society
is now collecting funds for a World
War I monument.
Acting as master of ceremonies for
the program, Jim Mash then read a
statement by Florida Governor Rick
Scott acknowledging May 30, 2011
as the nation's 144th Memorial Day.
The veterans service officer later in-
troduced the day's keynote speaker,
Army recruiting officer Lt. Col. Bob
Quint, who gave a poignant address
with a central theme, "Freedom Is
Not Free."
Quint pointed out that Monday


Lt. Col. Bob Quint gave the keynote address and reminded the audi-
ence that freedom is not free.


marked the ninth straight Memorial
Day the United States has been at
war, before recognizing veterans in
the crowd who had served in World
War II, Korea, Vietnam, Desert
Storm, Afghanistan and Iraq.


During his 29 years spent in the
Army, Quint said that he has person-
ally fought in two wars overseas. One
of his two sons is currently serving in
Afghanistan, and in 10 months, Quint
himself will return to combat.


"Regardless. of where you stand
on the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq,
whether you think we should pull out
or stay, there is no denying the brav-
ery of our men and women who have
fought at great costs to themselves,"
Quint said.
The death toll in Iraq stands at
4,442 American lives, compared to
1,571 American deaths in Afghani-
stan, Quint pointed out. He also said
that in June 2010, the war in Afghan-
istan surpassed the Vietnam War as
the longest war this nation has ever
fought, The face of the war changed
significantly on May 1,. 2011 when
Osama Bin Laden was killed, Quint
said.
"We are now on our 11th continu-
ing year of war and the costs in dollars
and in lives is just too high," Quint
said. "Sixty percent of the American
public believe that the war in Af-
ghanistan is no longer necessary."
While the speaker was obviously
in favor of pulling out of the war in
the Middle East, he said that the mili-
tary, of which he is a member, should
be cautious about leaving combat too
quickly. Quint was referring to Presi-
dent Barack Obama's plans to begin
troop withdrawals in July.
"I would rather fight our enemy
in the Kunar Providence, which is
in northern Afghanistan than on the
streets of Dallas, which is my home-
town, or the streets of Trenton,"
Quint said.

By Carrie A. Mizell
If having one's two front teeth
were a requirement for kindergarten
graduation, many of Gilchrist Coun-

candy flavored tobacco products


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
asked recently for a representative
of Quit Doc Research and Education
Foundation to come to the commis-
sion meeting and inform the board
about different types of tobacco
products being sold in the State of
Florida.
Tracy DeCubellis, of Quit Doc
Research and Education Foundation,
attended a county commission meet-
ing two weeks ago and answered
the commissioners' questions about
candy flavored tobacco products and
how they are being sold in Florida:
The commission asked the Quit
Doc Research and Education repre-
sentative for assistance to consider


the adoption of an ordinance to have
candy flavored tobacco products put
out of the reach of customers under
the age of 18 in Gilchrist County.
The commission was presented or-
dinances that local governments from
Dixie County, the City of Cross City
and Martin County have adopted.
Commissioner Sharon Langford
made a'motion to have the county
attorney present a draft ordinance to
have candy flavored tobacco prod-
ucts placed behind the counter out
of the reach of customers younger
than 18 years of age. Commissioner
Tommy Langford agreed as he gave
a second to the motion. Chairman
Durden called for a vote and the four
member board approved the motion


by a unanimous vote. The county at-
torney is expected to present a draft
ordinance to the Commission in an
upcoming meeting.

Are you ready for


hurricane season?


By Carrie A. Mizell
Wednesday marked the start of
another hurricane season and ex-
perts are predicting six to 10 hurri-
canes this season, with three to six
of those expected to be Category 3
or above.
"Because we have had no prob-
lem with hurricanes in Gilchrist
County since 2004, I worry that
people will be complacent," said
Ron Mills, chief of Gilchrist Coun-
ty Emergency Management.
Hopefully, Mills said, the recent
historic tornado outbreaks in the
southeast and midwest will be a
wake up call for citizens.
"Florida has never gone, six
years without some storm making
landfall," Mills said. "So the .odds
are not in our favor this year."
As the emergency management
chief pointed out on Tuesday, citi-
zens only have a short window of
time in which they know a hurri-
cane is going to hit their afea, so
it's important to make preparations
early.
As Phil May, FEMA regional ad-
ministrator said, "If you wait until
the storm is bearing down. on you,
you may forget important things.
You must plan ahead, stay safe and
stay informed."
Citizens are urged to get pre-
pared now. It's "simple and only
takes 10 to 15 minutes to fill out
a family disaster plan at florida-
-disaster.org. Citizens are asked to
provide information about their
home, family and pets. Using the
information a citizen provides, the
website will create a personalized
Family Disaster Plan that can be
printed out and saved for future
emergencies.
Included in this information are
recommended amounts of food
and water based on family size
and contact information for local
emergency responders, evacuation
maps and checklists for important
steps to take before, during and af-
ter an emergency are available on
this website.
In the event of art emergency,
citizens will have to be self suf-
ficient a minimum of three days
before mutual aid arrives from out-


side agencies, Mills explained. ,
"County fire and rescue workers,
and road department crews would
be swamped immediately if we had
a hurricane here," Mills said.
Community Emergency Re-
sponse Team (C.E.R.T.) training
has been offered to Gilchrist Coun-
ty citizens and according to Mills
24 residents have undergone train-
ing. This program is for volunteers
who wish to help protect and pro-
vide for their family, neighborhood
and county during an emergency
event.
The next C.E.R.T. training will
start June 14. The class is free to
the public, but a limited amount of
space is available for the 10 week
course. The training will. be held
weekly at the Emergency Opera-
tions Center in Bell on Tuesday
evenings from 6:30 to 9 p.m.
Graduates will receive a State
Certification as a member of
C.E.R.T., training in first aid, search
and rescue, basic fire suppression,
psychology, hazardous materials,
terrorism and receive a CPR cer-
tification. Graduates also receive
a backpack with various tools and
equipment.
To register for the next C.E.R.T.
course, call (386) 935-5400 or
(352) 494-8598.
According to Mills, in the event
of an emergency this hurricane sea-
son, evacuation shelters are Bell
Elementary School and Trenton El-
ementary School. A special needs
'shelter will be set up at Bell High
School.
Points of supply distribution will
be Billy Smith Watermelons in
Trenton and the Bell Community
Center'in Bell.
Citizens are asked to visit Gil-
christ County's website and fill out
a form to receive critical communi-
cations through the county's' Code
Red system in the event of a disas-
ter. Emergency officials utilize the
Code Red contact information to
let citizens know when there is a
weather emergency.
Mills said the county is working
towards getting an audible siren
system in Trenton and Bell through
grant funding.

Looking Unto Jesus
(Kent Heaton)


Life can be hard when you want to live for Christ.
Our faith is battered by the storms of life through
sickness, sorrow, persecution and the challenges of sin.
The. early Hebrew Christians were faced with those
same mountains to overcome and often would find
themselves wanting to give up. In the epistle to the
Hebrews, the writer offers hope and a promise of rest
for those who would endure. The conclusion of this
letter of exhortation is pleading with the people of God
to "lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily
ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race
that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author
and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set
before Him endured the cross, despising the shame,
and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of
God" (Hebrews 12:1-2).
When the encumbrance of sin is removed in life the
vision becomes clearer to look to Jesus for hope.
Looking unto Jesus will put a person's life in the right
direction. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the
life" (John 14:6) and our way must be His way; our
truth His truth; and our life must come from Him. The
Lord knows the right way and we must look to Jesus for
the right answers. Through the word of God we gain
enlightenment as the psalmist declared in Psalm
119:105 "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light
to my path."
Looking unto Jesus is looking at the "author" of our
faith. As the author of our faith the Lord is where we
originate our faith. Earlier the Hebrew writer said, "For
it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by
whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to
make the captain (author ASV) of their salvation
perfect through sufferings" (Hebrews 2:10). Paul


John Andrews submitted this photo of an Indigo snake that was
seen by his son traveling north on the east side of CR 341 near Bell.
He did not give the size of the snake but it appears the snake is over
8 feet in length.


Woman injured by sturgeon

on Suwannee River


By Karen Parker, FWC
A woman was injured when a
sturgeon crashed through her boat's
windshield and showered her with
glass. Erica Stevens (Dob: 03/21/84)
of Safety Harbor received minor in-
juries, according to Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) investigators.
On April 27, Stevens and her hus-
band, Scott Stevens, who was operat-
ing the boat, were on the Suwannee
River north of the U.S. 19 Bridge in
Gilchrist County, traveling at about
15 mph. At about 5 p.m., a 5-foot
sturgeon jumped up in front of Ste-
vens' vessel and crashed through the
boat's windshield, FWC officials
said.
Erica Stevens was sitting behind
the passenger windshield and was
hit by flying glass, sustaining cuts
on her arms and legs. According to
investigators, it's not certain that the
sturgeon ever made contact with her
during the incident.
Her husband took her to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville. The sturgeon
strike was reported to'FWC April 28,
and an investigation began.
The sturgeon also struck the bi-
mini-top support and the motor cowl-
ing before coming to rest inside the
vessel. The Stevens' 1973, 15-foot
Lightning boat sustained approxi-
mately $2,300 in damages.
Scott Stevens told investigators he
threw the sturgeon back into the river


but thought it was dead.
"This is the first sturgeon strike in
2011," said Maj. Lee Beach, law en-
forcement commander of the FWC's
North Central Region. "And that's
one too many."
Beach explained, "We certainly
don't want to scare anyone off the
river. The Suwannee is beautiful, and
we want folks to come out and en-
joy their trip. We just want to remind
boaters that the sturgeon are back in
the Suwannee, and they are jumping
during this time of year."
In 2006, FWC officials began
working on a public-awareness cam-
paign, posting signs along the river
to explain the risk of impacts with
jumping sturgeon.
What's 'the best course of action
for avoiding a collision? "We rec-
ommend boaters reduce their speed
to reduce the risk of impact and to
give people more time to react if they
do encounter a jumping sturgeon,"
Beach said. "The FWC also recom-
mends that all boaters wear their life
jackets."
Biologists are unsure why sturgeon
jump. Gulf sturgeon can get quite
big, exceeding 8 feet and 200 pounds.
State and federal laws protect' stur-
geon, just like bald eagles, panthers
and sea turtles. The Gulf sturgeon is
listed as threatened, and their harvest
is prohibited.
To report sturgeon collisions, call
888-404-FWCC (3922).

wrote, "If you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus
and believe in your heart that God has raised Him
from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart
one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth
confession is made unto salvation" (Romans 10:9-10).
Not only do we look to Jesus as the author of our
faith He is also the "finisher of our faith" (Hebrews
12:2). Our faith is perfected when we look to Jesus.
Growing in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ
instills in our lives the hope of promise (Hebrews
11:13-16) and the strength to endure through difficult
times (Hebrews 11:33-40). We see His own example of
faith when He "endured the cross" with '"joy"
(Hebrews 12:2). As a pattern of courage we can face the
day with renewed faith and knowledge that the one who
"has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God"
(Hebrews 12:2) will reign in our lives with the promise
of giving mercy and grace in our time of need (Hebrews
4:14-16).
The greatest joy of looking unto Jesus is that we see
the Father. Jesus said, "He who has seen Me has seen
the Father" (John 14:9). When we look to Jesus we
realize the blessings of mercy and grace to be God's
children. "He has delivered us from the power of
darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son
of His love, in whom we have redemption through His
blood, the forgiveness of sins. He is the image of the
invisible God, the firstborn over all creation"
(Colossians 1:12-15). What do we see when we look
unto Jesus? "Who being the brightness of His glory
and the express image of His person, and upholding
all things by the word of His power, when He had by
Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of
the Majesty on high" (Hebrews 1:3). Look to Jesus!

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Fried green 'matoes, is there any-
thing finer? This is the perfect time
of year to fry up a batch'of green
tomatoes. I've flipped through sev-
eral recipe books after reading this
month's Southern Living which in-
spired me to cook some fried green
tomatoes. Well, let's say Southern
Living and four little hands have in-
spired me. Recently while pulling my
soaker hose from one pea row to an-
other (through the nut grass) I briefly
turned my back on my 2, two-year-
old grandchildren, and those little
hands got mighty busy picking the
largest green tomatoes on the vines.
As I often do once inspired, I looked
though three or four favorite South-
ern cookbooks while looking for the
recipe I would try. The Southern Liv-
ing one suggested the green tomatoes
be breaded with self-rising cornmeal
mix after they were first dredged in
a seasoned flour mixture. In between
they were dipping the tomatoes in a
wash of egg and buttermilk.
Christy Jordan released her South-
ern Plate cookbook in 2010. If you
have not heard of Christy yet, she
is from Alabama and she cooks like
a bona fide Cracker. She has had a
blog since 2008 and now you can
catch her weekly cooking demos on
line at southemliving.com/quickfix.
Anyway, back to the 'matoes, Christy
mixes cornmeal and flour to roll her
tomatoes in.
Southern Heirloom Cooking by
Norma Jean McQueen Haydel and
Horace McQueen is a pretty much
unknown cookbook, but a really good
one anyway. The McQueens simply
salt and pepper their green tomatoes
and roll them in flour. The McQueens
' recommend that you pick tomatoes
that have just a hint of pink on the
skin to fry.
Of course I checked out Paula's
recipe. Having eaten the Deen family
fried green tomatoes at the Lady and
Sons Restaurant in Savannah, I know
first hand how good they are. Paula's
crew dips their tomatoes in butter-
milk and then rolls them in self-ris-
ing flour.
Last but not least Nathalie Du-
pree's Southern Memories cookbook,
which I have frankly worn the print
off of, recommends that you can ei-
ther bread the tomatoes in flour or
cornmeal but ol' Nathalie fries hers
in two sticks of butter while everyone
else fries theirs in peanut or vegeta-
ble oil. Then she tops them off with
tomato conserve.
The article in the June issue of
Southern Living talks about making
buttermilk biscuits, slicing them and
spreading jam on the biscuit and then
adding a couple of pieces of bacon.
This inspired me to come up with this
recipe which I think would be even
better.
Move over BLT, the BBPJ has
been born.


isw3 and 1 acon,


1 batch of whipping cream bis-
cuits
(recipe follows)
12 or more pieces of thick sliced
smoked bacon
(from Bradleys if you can get it or
our secret local source)
1 jar of pepper jelly
(Donna Jones' if you are blessed
like me)
12 slices of fried green tomatoes
(cooked anyway you like)
1 well worn feed sack apron
(If one has been handed down; jelly
can be messy don't you know)
Bake biscuits and fry bacon, drain
it well. Split open biscuit and gently
spread both sides with pepper jelly.
Lay bacon on biscuit bottom. Next
lay one hot fried green 'matoe slice
on top, then add biscuit top and en-
joy. Now, tell me what could be finer?
As my grandma said, "This is mighty
good if I must say so my own self."
Note: The biscuit recipe makes
only 7 or so biscuits and I recom-
mended that you fry 12 green tomato
slices and 12 slices of bacon. That is
not a mistake on my part. The little
ol' bit of extra is for the cook, bless
your heart. You have worked hard
and deserve a little treat. After all we
have to check the seasoning to make
sure it's just right, don't we?




Makes 7-8 biscuits
1 cup whipping cream
1 34 cups of self-rising flour

I use WhiteLily self-rising flour; it
is very finely ground and will make
a lighter biscuit than the standard
flours. Also sift flour before mea-
suring. Put flour in bowl and pour
whipping cream in. Stir with large
serving spoon about 3 or 4 times
only. Then walk away and let the in-
gredients come together on their own
for about five minutes. Next gently
scrape dough from bowl onto a heav-
ily floured counter or cutting board.
Gently pat dough with floured hands
into an 8-inch circle that is about
inch thick. Cut with floured 2
biscuit cutter. Bake in a preheated
425 degree oven until golden brown
about 10 to 15 minutes.
This recipe will make 5 to 6 bis-
cuits.
Note: Aunt Evelyn taught me that
if you wipe out the whipping cream
measuring cup with your hand and
pat the top of the unbaked biscuits, it
will make your biscuits have a pretty
brown top when baked.

You made it!!!! Congratulations to
the graduating class of 2011! Gradu
ation marks the celebration of a long
awaited accomplishment, as Well as
the beginning of a new challenge
"What will I do with my life?" SomT
of you have carefully mapped ou
plans, while others are still struggling
for answers. In your search, consider.
the words of Jeremiah 6:16:
"This is what the Lord says: "Stand
at the crossroads and look: ask fo:
the ancient paths, ask where the goot
way is, and walk in it, and you wil
find rest for your souls..."
You now stand at one of the biggest
crossroads of your life. Graduation i:
the end of a path that began years ag<
as you left Mom and Dad to climl
onto the school bus and walk into the
classroom on your own. Now is the
time to celebrate.. .with an eye to the
future.
Stand at this crossroad and look
An intersection is a place where yoi
must make a decision about whicl
way to go based on where you wan
to end up. Consider what you have
learned about life and about yourself
and look for the good way that lead
to your future. The right path fo
living is marked out by God, but i
requires a careful search to uncover
The popular, easier path is always go
ing to be offered and it will be tempt
ing, but know that it leads to a dead
end life.. .when we ignore God's ma]
we lose our way.
Walk in it. Once you get a glimpse
of that good why, don't get frustrated
if you can't see the whole plan right
now.. .start with one step.. .it may be
that you find the directions for the
next step on the way. Get going...:
tiny rudder can turn a huge ship, bu
only if it is moving. Be confident
that God has a plan for your life. Ih
Ephesians 2:10 the Bible tells us "Fo
we are God's workmanship, create
in Christ Jesus to do good works

TES holds Career Day

Aviary Chappie McChesney got some help from Trenton Elementary
School student Alex Cox during the school's Career Day on May 18.
From alpacas and dairy cows to GRU bucket trucks and cowboys, Ca-
reer Day had it all! a


us to do." That word "workmanship"
also means "masterpiece"...one of a
kind! God created you uniquely for a
specific purpose...to do good works.
The kicker is that He has' prepared
them "in advance" for you to do. All
we have to do is follow His map to
find them!
Find rest for your souls...Of all
the things I could hope and pray for
you.. .this is it. In a world full of un-
rest, strife and'lack of peace, having
rest for your soul is priceless, and
it only comes from being in right
standing with the One who, created
you. Notice that this rest comes as
a result of standing, looking, asking,
and walking...with Him. Your life
consists of the time between your ap-
pointed birth and death... how will
you spend it? Choose carefully.. .be-
cause your heart and your life mat-
ters!
Congratulations and Blessings!

Soon, families will be adjust-

and younger will be able to get a hot
lunch free of charge at all 4 Gilchrist
County schools. Lunches will be
served from 11:30 a.m. until 12:15
p.m. No pre-registration is required.
The meals have been nutritionally
approved by-the Florida Department
of Education, Food and Nutrition
Management, Tallahassee, Florida.
Each meal will be served as a unit,
including milk.
In an effort to continue to provide
children with nutritionally adequate
meals as well as foods that are pre-
ferred, the schools will be serving
the favorites such as hamburgers,
breaded chicken patty sandwiches,
macaroni and cheese just to mention
a few.
Children not already attending the
scheduled programs at school must
check in with the front office before
going to the cafeteria.

BHS Gifted 7th grader

recognized for ACT test scores


Alton Full'r


Submitted by Mrs. Debbie Rush,
Gifted BMS teacher
Alton Fuller, a 7th grade lifted stu-
dent at Bell Middle School (BMS)
was recently recognized and received


30%


a medal from Duke University Tal-
ent Identification Program (TIP) for
outstanding scores on the ACT Test.
Seven thousand Florida 7th graders
took the ACT test this year and there
were only 130 students that scored
higher than Alton.
Every year, Duke TIP seeks out
gifted 7th graders who have achieved
superior scores on their state assess-
ment test.
Duke TIP provides the opportunity
for above-level testing, feedback on
abilities, resources, and encourage-
ment to help students to continue
challenging themselves education-
ally.
Alton took the ACT test early so
he would have an opportunity to
preview the same test he will take
during the college entrance process.
When told of his achievement, Alton
just shrugged his shoulders and said
"no big deal." His peers thought it a
real big deal-wanting to try on his
medal.
Alton is a straight A student, in-
%olved in FFA, loves to cook, and
is very concerned with green issues.
He tries to eat organic and would like
to see people worry more about what
they eat. Alton is the son of Rebec-
ca and Gary Fuller of High Springs.
BMS is very proud of Alton.

Bill always had a fondness for reading bedtime stories to his daughter. As a I1-aven lHospice
patient with a serious illness, he wanted to be home with his laiily. especially for his
daughter's bedtime stories. So when it became too diflicultt for Bill 0o visit his doctor, our
doctors made house calls to Bill just not during story lime so Bill could stay right where
he wanted to be, home.

Not what you'd expect from hospice care? I laven is different. At l laven. we believe Hospice

FDOT cracks down on
safety belt use
Submitted
The Florida Department of Trans-
portation will join local and national
law enforcement officers and high-
way safety advocates all across the
country for the 2011 national Click
It or Ticket safety belt enforcement
mobilization, May 23-June 5.
During the mobilization, officers
will be cracking down on motorists
who fail to wear their safety belts--
both day and night.
Because nighttime passenger ve-
hicle occupants are among those
least likely to buckle up and most
likely to die in crashes when unre-
strained, nighttime enforcement has
become a priority of the Click It or
Ticket mobilization. Of those who
died in nighttime crashes in 2009,
nearly two-thirds-(62 percent) were
not wearing safety belts at the time of
their fatal crashes.
In 2009, 11,593 passenger vehi-
cle occupants died in motor vehicle
crashes nationwide between the
nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59
a.m., according to the National High-
way Traffic Safety Administration.
(NHTSA)
During 2010, in Florida, 571 peo-
ple died unbelted at night, compared
to 218 who died unbelted during the
day.
"Many nighttime traffic deaths can
be prevented if more motorists sim-
ply start wearing their safety belts.
That's why FDOT is strongly sup-
porting enhanced nighttime enf6rce-
ment of safety belt laws during the
Click It or Ticket campaign," said
Secretary Ananth Prasad. "We want
to remind drivers and passengers to
always wear their safety belts all the
time."
High-visibility enforcement such
as the Click It or Ticket mobiliza-
tion,,is, credited with increasing the
Florida safety belt usage rate from 60
percent in 1994 to an observed usage
rate of 87 percent in 2010. NHTSA
estimates that safety belt use saves
Florida an estimated 124 lives, 1,733
serious injuries, and $408 million in
costs annually.
"Law enforcement will be cracking
down on Click It or Ticket violators
around the clock. Florida motorists
should bb prepared to buckle up," said
FDOT Chief Safety Officer Marianne
Trussell. "If a law enforcement of-
ficer finds you on the road unbuckled
anytime or anywhere, you can expect
to get a ticket not a warning. No ex-
cuses and no exceptions."

Suwannee Valley Players an-
nounces its upcoming production
of Crimes of the Heart, a comedy/
drama by Beth Henley, directed by
Andy Kidd.
The scene is Hazlehurst, Missis-
sippi, where the three Magrath sis-
ters have gathered to await news of
the family patriarch, their grandfa-
ther, who is living out his last hours
in the local hospital. Lenny, the old-
est sister, is unmarried at thirty and
facing diminishing marital pros-
pects; Meg, the middle sister, who
quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back
after a failed singing career on the
West Coast; while Babe, the young-
est, is out on bail after having shot
her husband in the stomach. Their
troubles, grave and yet, somehow,
hilarious, are highlighted by their
priggish cousin, Chick, and by the


awkward young lawyer who trips to
keep Babe out of jail while helpless
not to fall in love with her. In the
end the play is the story of how its
young characters escape the past to
seize the future-but the telling is
so true and touching and consistent-
ly hilarious that it will linger in the
mind long after the curtain has de-
scended. This play is the winner of
the 1981 Pulitzer Prize and the New
York Drama Critics Circle Award.
Show dates are June 3, 4 and 5.
Friday and Satufday performances
are at 8 p.m. and Sunday perfor-
mances are at 2:30 p.m. and are
held at the Chief Theatre, 25 E.
Park Avenue, Chiefland. For more
information, contact Suwannee
Valley Players at (352) 493-ARTS

215 graduate from kindergarten


Continued from page 1
ery student's name, while the school
principals shook hands with the stu-
dents and congratulated him/her be-
fore a picture was taken.
Charlotte Kearney explained that
this year's kindergarten class marks
her 25th year teaching kindergar-
ten students at Trenton Elementary
School.
"I am now teaching kids who I
taught their parents," Kearney said,
with a smile and a shake of her head.
The kindergarten students made
their teachers proud as they sang a
number of songs at graduation last
week including "It is Time to Say
Goodbye:"
It is time to say goodbye to all my
friends.
It is time to say goodbye to all my
friends
It is time to say goodbye
give a smile and wink your eye
It is time to say goodbye to all my
friends
Goodbye friends, Yeehaw!
Thqugh similar in sentiment, Bell
and Trenton's kindergarten gradua-
tions featured a number of special el-
ements. At Bell Elementary it was a
slide show featuring pictures of each
and every graduate taken throughout
the school year. To the tune of "Let
Them Be Little" and "You Got A
Friend In Me" pictures taken on the
playground and in each classroom
rolled, much to the delight of the kin-
dergarten students featured. Trenton
Elementary School offered cupcakes
and fruit punch to students and their
guests following the graduation cer-
emony.
As the principals closed out gradu-
ation ceremonies, students walked
from the stage, where they were
greeted by family members, many
offering exuberant hugs, and the five
little words every 5-year-old wants to
hear, "I am proud of you!"

SVL Rookie 8U All-Stars

capture Lake City

invitational championship


Submitted
The Suwannee Valley Leagues 8
& Under AllStar team traveled to
Lake City on May 28th and 29th to
participate in the Lake City "Swing
Into Qualifier" Rookie Invitational
Tournament, capturing the cham-
pionship on Sunday after five hard
fought games during the weekend.
The opening day of the tourna-
ment was pool-play action, with
SVL drawing games against Lake
Butler in the first game of the day
and Jacksonville Atlantic Beach
later in the day. SVL got, off to a
slow start in the first game against
Lake Butler, but ultimately found
its swing in the later innings to
open the tournament with a 16-9
win over its opponent from Union
County. The 'second game of the
day proved to be disappointing, as
SVL struggled defensively, com-
mitting 12 infield errors in a 13-4
loss to Atlantic Beach.
The second day of the tourna-
ment brought new hope for the SVL
Lightning as the single elimination
portion of the tournament began.
After posting a 1-1 record on Sat-
urday, SVL found itself seeded #4
in the tournament for Sunday. With
the #4 seed, SVL opened play Sun-
day with a battle against the #5 seed
Branford. This game proved to be
the toughest of the day for SVL,
with Jaken Hafner making the dif-
ference offensively for the Light-
ning with a bases-clearing grand
slam that gave SVL the lead at 9-8,
which they held to the end for the
win.
The win against Branford pro-
pelled SVL into the semi-final
game against the #1 seeded Santa
Fe team, who on Saturday had
pounded both teams it had played,
including Branford. After a brief
15 minute break, SVL returned to
the field on fire. As the visiting
team, SVL had the opportunity to
draw first blood and they did so in
fine fashion, scoring the maximum
7 runs in the first inning without
registering a single out. After al-
lowing 3 runs in the bottom of the
first to narrow the lead to 7-3, SVL
returned to the plate in the 2nd in-


ning and registered 5 more runs, to
take a 12-3 lead. After. blanking
Santa Fe in' the bottom of the 2nd,
SVL proceeded to plate an addi-
tional maximum 7 runs in the 3rd
inning to take a commanding 19-3
lead, which they held to the end.
SVL's overwhelming win against
#1 Santa Fe put them in a highly an-
ticipated rematch with the #2 seed
Jaclsonville Atlantic Beach team,
which had defeated SVL on Satur-
day during pool play. Sensing their
improved play and the opportunity
to bring home a championship to
Gilchrist County, the 7 and 8 year
olds took the field with fire in their
eyes. In the top of the first, Jacob
Guthrie set the tone for the game
with a bomb to left center field that
nearly left the ballpark for a triple.
Ultimately as the game settled
in, SVL took command, utilizing
its nmpch improved defense and a
"small ball" approach on offense to
keep the Atlantic Beach team off-
balance for most of the game. Ul-
timately, the game ended early with
SVL scoring a run in the top of the
sixth on a single by Jacob Guthrie
to score Mac Johnson, giving the
SVL Lightning a 13-5 champion-
ship game victory and redemption
of its only loss of the tournament.
Offensive leaders for the tour-
nament were Alex Brown (11 for
11), Jacob Guthrie (13 for 14, 1
HR), Jaken Hafner (12 for 13, 1
HR), Caden Hastings (13 for 15),
and Mac Johnson (12 for 14). De-
fensive standouts on Saturday and
Sunday included' Oren Dampier,
who set the tone in the first game of
the tournament with an outstanding
catch in center field, Jaken Hafner,
