Burn ban in effect


By Ron Mills
After reviewing Gilchrist County's
current wildland fire conditions and
the area weather forecast, a manda-
tory countywide burn ban has been
implemented, effective on June 6,
2011. The ban will remain in effect
until June 13, 2011.
The mandatory burn ban affects all
of Gilchrist County, including rural
and municipal areas.
The countywide mandatory burn
ban prohibits all of the following:
All outdoor burning that has not
been specifically authorized by the
Florida Division of Forestry.
The use of any fireworks, spar-
klers, flares, or other pyrotechnic de-
vices except as provided by law for
public displays requiring a permit.
: Please note that the ban does not
affect agricultural burning authorized
by the Florida Division of Forestry
for land clearing or prescribed burn-
Ing purposes.
. Although the use of LPG/LNG
grills and charcoal grills is permit-
ted, the public is encouraged to keep
4 constant watch for any stray sparks
or embers while cooking outdoors.
Additionally, due to the potential
Ioeta


for accidental ignitions, the use of
motorized equipment such'as ATVs
and dirt bikes is discouraged during
times of high wildfire risk. Please
bear in mind that lawnmowers, both
push and riding, also pose accidental
ignition risks. Citizens are asked to
exercise caution during the burn ban.
Working together, Gilchrist County's
citizens and local fire suppression
agencies may avoid a repeat of the
1998 wildfires which scorched 7,100
acres locally.
Any burning within the County
during the imposed ban will be in
violation of sections 10.08 and 10.09
and section 252.50 of Florida Stat-
utes. It will be considered a second-
degree misdemeanor, punishable by
up to a 60-day imprisonment and up
to a $500.00 fine. All County and mu-
nicipal law enforcement agencies are
authorized to enforce the ordinance.
For more information, please con-
tact the Gilchrist County Department
of Public Safety at (386) 935-5400.

78 graduate

from Bell
By Carrie A. Mizell
Bell High School was a wonder-
ful place to grow up, according to
valedictorian Quentin Hudson, who
said on Friday night that the gradu-
ating Class of 2011 experienced
great joy and unimaginable sorrow
during their years at Bell.
"We learned to rejoice in fair
weather and pray in the storms,"
Hudson said, referring to the sudden
deaths of fellow classmates Kyle
Ford and Garrett Hudson.
Though several tears fell dur-
ing graduation, the evening marked
an extraordinary moment for the
graduates, many of whom were all
smiles throughout the formal cer-
emony held on the school's football
field.
"This end marks just the begin-
ning for us," Hudson told his class-
mates.
The senior, who graduated with
a 4.0 grade point average, encour-
aged his fellow students to look to

57 graduate

from Trenton
By Carrie A. Mizell
Trenton High School's graduat-
ing Class of 2011 holds many re-
cords, explained principal Lynette
Langford, during Saturday night's
graduation ceremony.


"There are a bunch of good kids
in this class," Langford said. "They
are nice to each other, and they treat
adults with respect. I have found that
the senior class sets the tone for the
entire school and because this class is
so outstanding, we have had a won-
derful school year at Trenton High
School. Thank you, seniors."
According to Langford, the Class
of 2011, which is made up of just 57


seniors, holds the record at THS for
the smallest graduating class in the
last 15 years, the lowest number of
referrals, the first West Point Acad-
emy appointment, the lowest amount
of money raised for prom, the highest
number of senior skip days, and the
largest percentage of honor students,
students receiving Bright Futures
scholarships and students who have
taken college courses.


Three graduating seniors, Eliza-
beth Boyles, Taylor Bushway and
Sean Scank were recognized for
having completed their AA degrees
at Florida Gateway College while
in high school.
Boyles was recognized as Tren-
ton High School's Class of 2011
valedictorian. As she said in her

Retaining wall restored at Hart Springs Park


By Mitchell Gentry
A new retaining wall around Hart
Springs was built during the off sea-
son this past winter. The old wall,
built in the late 1950s, more than fifty
years ago, had deteriorated making it
unsafe. The new wall, designed and
installed to complement the appear-
ance of the old one, was installed
within six inches of the old wall. The
material used was aluminum panels,
but with a curvaceous twist. A con-
crete cap that softens its appearance
makes it fit within our memories of
the past. The use of concrete for a cap
allowed gracefully winding curves to
create a serpentine ribbon around,
and up and down the springs. The
aluminum panels were previously
purchased through a FRDAP (Flori-
da Recreation and Development As-
sistance Program) grant awarded to
Gilchrist County. Installation of the
panels and concrete cap cost approxi-
mately $30,000.00. Additional im-
provements that included rebuilding

the floating dock and placing it in the
center of the springs, planting sod,
and replacing five live oak trees (do-
nated by Mac J6hnson) completed the
project. It took two and a half months
to complete. Construction was done
by: David Browning, Faye Harding,
and David Grawcock (staff), Doug
Cutsforth, Scotty Richardson, Joel
Washnock, Harold Cryderman, Marty
Harding, and Bill Moon (volunteers).
Local sub-contractors were Timmy
Williams, concrete finisher, and Da-
vid Jones from the Michael Alexan-
der Group. Mitchell Gentry, manager
of Hart Springs, being a Certified
General Contractor, served in that ca-
pacity. Future improvements include
a retaining wall around the peninsula
by the pedestrian bridge, and rebuild-
ing the steps leading to it. A permit
has beqn approved to dredge where
soil has eroded into the springs and to
build a platform dock reminiscent of
the old one. You are invited to come
see the improvements this summer!


A new retaining wall was built at Hart Springs over the winter.

School district honors retiring employees


By Carrie A. Mizell
This week marks the final week
of school for 14 Gilchrist County
School District employees who have
retired after many years of working
with students.
From the bus driver who takes the
field trips no other driver wants, to the-
teacher who taught Dr. Bruce Thomas
to read when he was in fourth grade,
the school employees will leave a
void that will be hard to replace.
"This is a time of celebration, but
it's also a little sad," Superintendent
Don Thomas said before presenting
each employee with a plaque recog-
nizing their years of service.
Honored retirees included: Barbara
Townsend who worked 21 years in
the school district's bus garage.
David Spencer, director of opera-
tions for the Gilchrist County School


District, was unable to attend Tues-
day's recognition, but he wrote sev-
eral comments that were read aloud
about his experience working with
Townsend.
"She is a master multitasker,"
Spencer stated. "She took me under
her wing when I first started and as
long as I listened to what she said ev-
erything ran smoothly."
Alice "Miss Faye" Jones drove her
last bus route for the Gilchrist County
School District on Friday. Known as
a mentor to other drivers, Miss Faye
brought enthusiasm and a willing-
ness to do whatever was asked of her
to work each day, explained David
Spencer.
According to Danna Tucker, direc-
tor of food service for the Gilchrist
County School District, Elizabeth
"Betsy" Scott was always a quiet

Tuesday that her delicious baking
will be missed, but Betsy has agreed
to come back as a substitute as need-
ed.
After 27 years at Bell Elementary
School, Connie Casey is retiring.
Sherry Lindsey, principal at BES,
said Casey has taught everything
from second grade to computers over
the years. Calling her a wonderful
teacher, Lindsey said, Casey could
always be counted on to get the most
out of kids. The principal also said
Casey likes to bake when she gets
stressed, so her delicious treats will
be missed in the school's front office
next year.
After many years of teaching
physical education at Bell Elemen-
tary School, Ed Davis is retiring with
plans that include a condo in Destin.
BES principal Sherry Lindsey said
that Davis has a unique relationship

bered at the school as always having
a Plan B.

Dr. Bruce Thomas' reading skills,

Log Cabin


Quilters
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, June 1, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Everyone is being kept
busy with the vegetables and fruit
that are in and need to be "put up"
by canning or freezing. Mr. Gore
brought in cucumbers, watermel-
ons, tomatoes and much more. Mr.
Markham gave us fresh corn. 1 never
know what will come in and I want
to thank all who give us so much. Its
canning time as well as putting it in
the freezer for days when we can get
a great meal in no time at all.
Greg and six boys were out Tues-
day and got a lot of inside work done.
There is always something to do
here. We get one thing done and then
.it's time for something else. Thanks,
Lancaster.
Thursday lunch was great with
meat loaf, rice, new potatoes, fried
eggplant, scalloped potatoes, cucum-
bers, tomatoes, cookies, pumpkin
bars, watermelon, brownies and so
much more.

One of life's greatest mysteries is
how the boy who wasn't good enough
to marry your daughter can be the fa-
ther of the smartest grandchild in the
world.


Mrs. Pat Hodge recalled an incident
that occurred one day while the two
were having lunch. Apparently Mrs.
Hodge spilled something on her shirt
and Mrs. Rogers suggested she take
it off, wash it out and put it in the mi-
crowave to dry. Needless to say, there
was a fire. Both ladies recall the story
with a laugh and fond memories of
their time spent at BES.
Bell High School principal Rick
Reed said he and Nancy Rowe started
work at BHS the same year, 1979. Af-
ter 31 years with the Gilchrist County
School District, and four earlier years
with the Dade County School Dis-
trict, Rowe is retiring.
"She is just one incredible lady and
we will miss her a lot," Reed said.
Superintendent Don Thomas and
Betty Durden have something in
common as well. The two graduated
from high school together! After 30
years teaching at Trenton Elemen-
tary School, Durden is retiring this
year, but plans to come back and help
children with their reading skills,
explained Michelle Smith, assis-
tant principal at Trenton' Elementary
School.
Susan Sholtes will be missed as
an accomplished teacher, coach and
reading instructor at Trenton High
.School. According to principal Lyn-
nette Langford, Sholtes has done a
little bit of it all while at THS, and
her presence at the school will be
missed.
Gary Sanders, Riley Deen' and
Patsy Turner were also recognized as
having retired this year, but were not
present at Tuesday's meeting.
After the retiring employees were
recognized publicly, a reception was
held in their honor at the school dis-
trict office.


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action in their June 6 meeting to
write off uncollected debt from Gil-
christ County Emergency Medical
Service.
Linda Walker, supervisor of the ser-
vice, presented the identified service
fees for the fourth quarter of 2010
and first quarter of 2011 uncollected
revenue assumed by the emergency
service provider. The following is an
account of the revenues: collection
accounts $33,555.30, Gilchrist Coun-


ty Sheriff Office inmates $5,720.00,
deceased patients $5,325.06, bank-
ruptcy $211.87, indigent $117.11, and
$2,153.13 to billing error. The report
indicated that due to a shortage of
billing staff during the last quarter of
2010, the EMS office did not get the
fourth quarter report to the board.
The board took action on a motion
by Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
and a second by Commission Tommy
Langford to write off this uncollected
debt. The Commission approved the
action by a unanimous vote.


Henley recognized as a


great school teacher


Superintendent Don Thomas is shown with Chandler Beach, his
grandmother, Jennifer Beach and Trenton Elementary School teacher
Juan Henley.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Trenton Elementary School teacher
Juan Henley was honored on Tuesday
morning as an outstanding teacher.
One local family went so far as to
call the longtime educator a hero.
While he has long been popular
with third grade students, Henley was
praised at the district level after a lo-
cal mother, Misty Beach wrote a let-
ter to the school district office prais-
ing Henley as an exceptional teacher
and human being.
Beach's mother, Jennifer Beach
read the letter her daughter had writ-
ten aloud during Tuesday morning's
school board meeting. .
In the letter, Misty states how
grateful she is to Henley after he rec-
ognized that her son Chandler was


zoning out in class. In what Misty
calls, "a life changing observation,"
Henley pointed this out to his mother,
who then took Chandler to the pedia-
trician and explained what his school
teacher had noticed.
After running a few tests, the pe-
diatrician diagnosed him with major
epilepsy, which can be controlled
with medication.
"Without the love of Juan Henley
this would have gone unnoticed,"
Misty stated in her letter.
Henley was not only given hugs on
Monday morning by.the Beach fam-
ily, and applause from the'audience,
but the school district also presented
him with a recognition certificate and
praised him for being a wonderful
teacher.

There is nothing like hot summer
weather to make you want to run
away on a day trip. Just imagine me
trying to explain to my boss that it's
much too hot to work! I have this lit-
tle girl who thinks she'needs to wear
her bathing suit every single day in
hopes a swimming trip comes along.
Thank goodness Allie Claire can get
further with my dad than I can!
Recently, my mom. and I took a
wild hair and decided to load Allie
and Gus up on a Friday and take them
to White Springs for the Florida Folk
Festival. "A cultural trip," as I called
it, was in order. Though we got there
too early to hear Billy Dean or John
Anderson sing, we enjoyed some re-
ally good chicken and rice made by
local church ladies, and looked at
booths filled with everything from
pottery to pepper sauce.
The kids loved the live music. Gus
especially liked dancing to the banjo
music! (Where was the video camera,
when we needed it?) Allie Claire,
much like her momma, enjoyed
standing in front of the giant fans set
up on the makeshift platforms and
letting the cool air blow on her. It
was so hot, but definitely an interest-
ing day trip.
As Donald Forgione, director of
the Florida Park Service, stated in
the Florida Folk Festival program,
"A tradition is casually defined as the







Save our Wednesday
Nights (and our youth)!
Dear Tri-County Area Citizens,
Through the years, our communi-
ties have maintained the long-time
tradition of reserving Wednesday
nights for purposes of-faith. This has
been particularly helpful with respect
to our youth. Local churches of all
denominations have taken this op-
portunity to instill values of virtue
and service in the lives of our young

handing down of customs and beliefs
from generation to generation." For
59 years the Florida Folk Festival has
worked to see that Florida's folk tra-
ditions are passed down from genera-
tion to generation.
In the spirit of celebrating our
roots, mom and I wheeled into Ad-
ams Country Store, which was built
in White Springs in 1865. For as long
as I can remember the building has
sat boarded up and showing its age,-
but on this trip we noticed signs of
life, and even a fresh paint job in
progress. Curious, we decided to
step inside and see what's been going

people. These core values are the
underpinnings of wholesome family
lives and harmonious communities.
The tradition has served us well.
Unfortunately, the sacred trust we
share for the welfare of our youth
has met with increasing scheduling
challenges in recent years. We find
non-religious activities ,of various
types scheduled more and more in
conflict with faith-based activities on
Wednesday evening. This places our
young people in an awkward position
of having to decide between faith, or
other interests. While we understand
the many demands on our time and
the time of our youth, we believe it
is in our mutual interest to maintain
our community standard of open
Wednesday nights. Other pursuits,

on. Turns out, a very nice man has
purchased the old store and nearly
the entire block. Rather than tear it
down, he is in the process of revital-
izing the store and plans to open it to
the public as a museum. Already, he
is stocking the store with aged goods
reminiscent of the stock that once
filled the shelves.
It blessed my heart to see that
dusty old store, which was featured
in Alan Jackson's music video for
"Little Man" is now back in business.
No longer is it empty and boarded up
like it never existed. That's what I
call preserving Florida's heritage.

value.
We respectfully ask you to consider
this and help us encourage organiza-
tions of all types to keep Wednesday

roads, (which helps the dust problem
on many) but on the other hand, peo-
ple steal, rape, murder and certainly
trash our roads with their unconcern.
I'd rather smell a little manure or
see water keeping alive the planted
fields, and for a month or two get-
ting a few feet of the road wet, than
see more griping yankees or newly
moved suburbanites come into our
county. I've lived in rural areas all
my life and can't think of one time
I have complained about the farm-
ers. Maybe our complainers would
be happier getting their milk from
China, their veggies from Thailand,
and their beef from Mexico. Every-
time I slow down to drive around a
tractor I tell myself, "We've not been
discovered by the complainers, the
mall rats or the city dwellers." But
looks like I am wrong. As I drive by
the endless trash along the highway,
I am reminded that the problem is
those darn farmers that feed us. They
are trashing the roadside with water.
I could almost say, "If you're eating,
thank a farmer," but I'm quite sure
our complainers never see the beer
bottles or countless wrappers along

The Misquoted Bible
(Kent Heaton)


John Blake (CNN) wrote an article about the often
used and seldom true quotations from the Bible titled,
"Actually, that's not in the Bible" (cnn.com). These
"chimney corner scriptures" have been around for a
long time and many have been. accepted as part of the
Biblical text. Blake points out that while the Bible is the
"most revered book in America ... it's also one of the
most misquoted." It would seem incredulous that a book
that has been in the hands of man for so many centuries
would be so misread and misquoted. The reason is due
to the ignorance of those who claim to know so much of
what they know little about.
Some of the famous misquotes are "God helps those
who help themselves and "spare the rod and spoil the
child." None of these quotes are found in the Bible
although there are some principles that may suggest
their meaning (see Proverbs 13:24 for the 'spare the
rod' quote). Some ideas that people believe about the
Bible are not found such as Jonah was swallowed by a


the 'rest of the story.' The apostle John writes, "So the
great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called
the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world ...
He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who is
the Devil and Satan" (Revelation 12:9; 20:2).
When Satan tempted Jesus in Matthew 4 Jesus
responded to each challenge with scripture (Matthew
4:1-11). The devil countered Jesus on the second
temptation with a mutilated quotation of Psalm 91:11.
Misquoting often is for the reason tO prove a false
premise with no regard to a textual truth. As someone
said, "a text without a context is nothing but a pretext. "
Jesus rebuked Satan with a quote from Deuteronomy
6:16 that should be a warning to any who think that
misquoting the Bible is a good thing: "You shall not
tempt the lord your God" (Matthew 4:7).
Misquoting the Bible can be as serious as misquoting
a medical diagnosis or legal point of law. In medicine
an incorrect measure of a drug can have deadly

Seems like summer has come early
this year. According to the calender
summer officially begins June. 21.
I'm pretty sure everyone out here has
been fighting the same dry conditions
trying to save their gardens from the
parching sun. I've been shelling peas
for a full two weeks already and my
mother's peach tree has already been
picked. With the heat setting in April
and no rain to speak of in May, we
were some kinda parched on Monday
when I heard a storm come rumbling
in. We got 1.25 inches of rain, which
I am very thankful for.
When it is as dry as this year, you
can often hear a Florida native say,
"What we need about now is a good
ol' tropical depression out in the Gulf
to bring some much needed rain." But,
with all the bad, the flooding, and
those terrible tornadoes that those in
'middle America have faced this year,
I am afraid to wish for a hurricane
want-to-be in the Gulf. I surely pray
we don't have any bad hurricanes this
year but as crazy as the weather pat-
tern has been all over the country it
surely makes me wonder. I'm sure
the folks with FEMA and the Red
Cross already have their hands full.
I pray for rain, but I don't want to
pray up one of those big old bad boys
(hurricanes) for us to endure.
This week I thought I would share.
this little ol' pickle recipe just in case
anyone has a few squash left that they
need to use up somehow. Is there
anything better with fried mullet than
a fresh jar of pickles? Well, yeah, I
guess some of y'all are thinking, a
big ol' pot of swamp cabbage with
lots of black pepper.
This pickle is like a true cross be-
"tween a dill and a sweet box pickle.
The squash slices have a nice crunch
and the pepper flakes give them just
enough heat. On second thought try
these pickles with a big bowl of acre
peas and corn sticks (corn bread). My
father would chip up fresh hot pepper
on his peas and I think these pickles
would bring just the right amount of
heat and spice to accompany peas real
well. I can almost taste the potlikker
from the. peas with a touch of pickle
juice all run together and sopped up
with one corn stick. Man oh man, I
love this time of year.
Give these pickles a try; they are
easy and quick; what more could we
want? Another advantage is that this
recipe uses about the same spices as
bread and butter pickles so you might
already have the makings on hand.

Gilchrist County
Historical Society
Meeting
The Gilchrist County Historical
Society will hold a regular monthly
meeting on June 14, 2011, at 7 p.m.
Our new meeting location is the
Gilchrist County Commissioners'
Building located at 210 South Main
Street, Trenton. We welcome new
guests.
Thank you,
Charlotte Pedersen, President


(makes 1 quart) .
2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
(mine were about 9 inches long)
2 medium size yellow squash, thin-
ly sliced
large Vidalia onion, sliced
1 tablespoon salt, plain without io-
dine.
cup apple cider vinegar
/ cup white wine vinegar
3 cup sugar
2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 1/4 teaspoon fresh dill, minced
V teaspoon red pepper flakes
After you have sliced the squash
and onion, toss it with the salt. Place a
colander in a large bowl and fill with
squash and onion, cover with plastic
wrap and place in the refrigerator for
8 hours or overnight to drain (mine
actually sat for 11 hours). Rinse and
drain the squash and onions well; in
fact, rinse them two or more times
before draining them. After they have
drained, put them in a one quart ma-
son jar.
Heat the following in a medium
size sauce pan over medium-high
heat: vinegars, sugar, garlic, mustard,
dill and red pepper flakes. Stir until
the sugar is melted and pot comes to
a slow boil, then reduce the heat and
simmer for 8 minutes.
Pour pickling mixture over squash
and put canning lid and ring on jar
and tighten. Leave pickles sitting on
the kitchen counter top until cool and
then put in fridge. Chill 24 hours be-
fore eating. These pickles will last for
a week to ten days if kept cold.
Finally, a word about red pepper
flakes. Years ago when I first started
using red pepper flakes, the bottle had
very few pepper seeds mixed with
the dried pepper flakes. But over the
past few years I notice that the spice
companies are adding more and more
seeds. The last couple of bottles have
had about 50 percent seeds. Anyway,
when making these pickles or using
pepper flakes in any recipe, I try to
sort out most of the seeds and discard
them. After all, I'm after the flakes.
It seems like a lot of trouble, but if
you pour them on a paper plate and
spread them out, it only takes a few
extra minutes to sort the seeds out of
the flakes.

Harold Mikell, a Trenton native,
was recently honored by the Talla-
hassee Senior Center as a 2011 Sil-
ver Star. At the Silver Stars Awards
gala, Mikell injected some humor
when asked by Cornerstone Learn-
ing Community student interviewer,
Phoenix Torregrosa, "What did you
do to win this award?" To which the
modest award winner replied, "For
one thing...I've lived a long time."
Actually, Silver Stars awards are
presented to individuals selected for
their incredible volunteerism and ser-
vice to others since turning age 60.
Looking much younger than his
years, the Silver' Star shines as an
example of an involved, caring and
active senior. The 84-year-old exer-
cises five days a week with a personal
trainer, still volunteers occasionally
(although he "keeps it simple"), and
visits his wife Juanita every day. at
the nursing home.
After graduating from high school
in Gilchrist County in 1944, he joined
the United States Navy and became
a radio operator gunner on a patrol
bomber. In 1946, .Harold left the ser-
vice and enrolled at the University of
Florida, where he was a strong sup-
porter for many years as president of
the School of Forestry Alumni Asso-
ciation; he continues his support in
an advisory position. He graduated in
1950 with a B.S. degree in Forestry.
The Honor Society of Agriculture,
Gamma Sigma Delta, honored him in
2003 with their UF Chapter Award
for his distinguished service to Food,
Agriculture, Natural Resources and
Life Sciences.
Harold joined the Florida Forest
Service, later named the Division of
Forestry, where he remained for 41
years. Working his way up through
the division, he held many positions,

-1991.
He served as Chairman of the Flor-
ida Section of Society of America
Foresters during 1974 1975 and was
recognized for 60 years of service in
2009. He was given the section's C.
Huxley Coulter Award in 1992 for his
outstanding contributions.
In 1993, when Harold was 66, Con-
gressman Pete Peterson asked him to
serve as the Agricultural and Natural
Resource district representative for
six months. He stayed for three and
a half years. State Representative Al-
len Boyd then replaced Congressman
Peterson and requested Harold to
serve with him-he stayed another
14 years.
He served as treasurer of Timber-
lane Church of Christ for 30 years and
still assists with community projects.
And since 1969, he's been a member

During his cherished visits with

dents at the facility. He also enjoys
spending time with daughter Patti
Booth, her husband Will and his two
granddaughters, Lacey and Annie.

AARP News
AARP will hold its regular month-
ly meeting on June 21, 2011 at 10:30
a.m. at the Lodge at Otter Springs.
The temperature feels like sum-
mer even though it's still spring, but
inside the Lodge the temperature is
wonderful; the new air-conditioning
system works great. The addition
of a new speaker system has made it
much easier to hear every word even
if the speakers have a soft voice.
The new kitchen sure makes serv-
ing meals much more enjoyable, and
speaking of meals, this month will be
"Pot Luck."
This month's speaker will be Le-
anne Seay, who is with Barnes Heafth
Care Services. We feel like we know
her already because she is Shiela
Frierson's daughter. Shiela and her
sister Susan are our Blood Pressure
Ladies from Omni Health Care. I'm
sure that she'll provide us with some
useful information. Always remem-
ber that when it comes to your health
care, you have choices, so don't just
go with the agency that your doctor
recommends.
I will not be at this meeting, but I
am sure that there will be some in-
teresting committee reports as our
Secretary-Health Chairlady, Felice
Swalla, will be back from vacation.
Enjoy the meeting and the lun-
cheon and always remember to be
there with CAN IN HAND.

the Night Away!
A huge success and a ton of fun!
On Saturday evening, Otter Springs
Park and Campground hosted their
first Southern Rock concert in years,
featuring Mid-Life Crisis and the
Hot Flashes, a band from Keystone
Heights. The 10-member band
played two sets, giving us a variety
of great favorites, such as Rockin' in
the Free World, Summer of '69, 867-
5309 and even a little Johnny Cash
and George Strait, for a little mix-
up. We enjoyed a great attendance
and the lodge was rockin' for hours.
People dancing, windows shaking;
people could not get enough. True to
pleasing a crowd, the band ended the
concert with Lynyrd Skynyrd's Sweet
Hothe Alabama, bringing all to their
feet and singing along. We are al-
ready planning an outside concert lat-
er in the fall, bringing back Mid-Life
Crisis and the Hot Flashes by popular
demand. Follow 'Otter Springs' on
Facebook for updates to upcoming
events and programs or call the park
at 463-0800.

God for guidance in the future. He
also told his classmates to look inside
themselves, because whether they
fail or succeed in life is up to them.
Comparing Helen Keller to Brittany
Spears, Hudson told his classmates to
keep the faith and always strive for
success, but don't confuse real suc-
cess with vanity."
Recalling Bell High School's bac-
calaureate service, where Hudson and
his classmates sang the old hymn,
"I'll Fly Away" the salutatorian said
on Friday, "Tonight, graduates, it's
time to fly away!"
Twenty-six of Bell High School's
78 graduates attended Bell schools


from kindergarten through 12th grade.
Those students, recognized during
graduation, were Paul Bloom, Melis-
sa Byers, Tyler Cox, Melanie Deane,
Andrea Dechow, Bradley Denham,
Daniel Freeman, Logan Holley, Jen-
nifer Honaker, Gabrielle Hunter,
.Bianca Kalapos, Chelsea Langford,
Cody Langford, Austin Lindsey, Sa-
mantha Owens, Cassie Pridgeon,
Janie Reed, Orrie Roberts, Greyson
Stewart, Sarah Sundberg, Kristopher
Taylor, Bradley Teckenbrock, Wil-
liam Upshaw, Lucas Wilson, Larana
Wingate and Steven Woodby.
The air filled with toe-tapping
music as members of the Bell High


School Purple Powerhouse Band,
joined for the last time by the Class
of 2011 graduates who were band
members, played "In the Mood."
Teacher of the Year Gray Smith
recognized seniors Robert Brito as
Outstanding Senior Male and Jennie
Smith as Outstanding Senior Female.
The Outstanding Senior awards were
voted on by faculty at BHS. John
Bailey was chosen Outstanding Se-
nior Male Athlete, and Jennie Smith
was selected Outstanding Senior Fe-
male Athlete.
Salutatorian Lucas Wilson recalled
time spent coloring together as kin-
dergarten students, and the awkward


years of middle school, through the
last several weeks of high school,
during his salutatorian address.
"Today is the first day of the rest
of our lives," Wilson said, "We're all
moving on, but just remember we'll
always be the BHS Class of 2011."
As the alma mater played, many
graduates linked arms and swayed
back and forth as they sang, "Our
strong bonds can n'er be broken,
formed in old Bell High. Far sur-
passing words unspoken sealed by
friendship's tie. Alma Mater, Alma
Mater deep graven on each heart,
shall be found unwavering true when
we from life shall part."


By Carrie A. Mizell
After playing bluegrass and gos-
pel music most of his life, Chief-
land native Shannon Slaughter has
finally released his first solo. cd
"The Sideman Steps Out."
Featuring 14 tracks, eight of
which Slaughter wrote, or co-
wrote, the cd has already earned
the talented musician high praise.
"I've been waiting for years for
Shannon to do an album that fea-
tures his voice, writing and picking
and it turned out to be just like I
thought it would: Awesome!" said
Shawn Lewis of Blue Highway.
"Give it a listen and you're sure to
be as big a fan as I am."
On Friday evening Slaughter
will be in Nashville celebrating the
release of his solo cd, but he was in
Chiefland over the weekend sing-
ing at a close friend, Mrs. Jo Wil-
son's celebration of life service.
Singing in church started early
for Slaughter who began playing
music on his own at the age of 8
after being immersed in acoustic
and country music at an early age
by his family. It wasn't long before
Slaughter was playing and singing
in local churches, at livestock fairs
and other venues throughout the
tri-county area.
, Slaughter began his profes-


sional career in 1992, when he
moved to Virginia and has since
performed with several bands, tour-
ing throughout the United States
and even playing at the Grand Ole
Opry. Currently, Slaughter plays
guitar and sings withLou Reid and
Carolina, whose cd "Sounds Like
Heaven to Me" was nominated for
a DOVE award for bluegrass gos-
pel album of the year.
In addition, Slaughter regularly
performs with his own bluegrass
and traditional country band,
County Clare. Members include
his talented wife Heather, Joey
Cox on banjo and Ron Inscore on
mandolin. The musicians in County
Clare are featured prominently on
Slaughter's new solo cd.
Shannon is really excited about
his new cd which is available on-
line through the band's website:
www.countyclareband.com If pay-
pal is not the preferred method of
payment, interested parties can
mail checks for $17, made pay-
able to Shannon Slaughter, to 200
Leona Lane in Trussville, Alabama
35173 and he will mail you a copy
of "The Sideman Steps Out." Shan-
non Slaughter's mother, Jennie Lou
Sharp also has copies of the cd
available for $15. Call Jennie Lou
at 493-4638.

address, Boyles moved to Gilchrist
County in seventh grade, so she could
not offer any witty anecdotes about
her fellow classmates. In fact, Boyles
said much of her high school experi-
ence was spent in the band room or
the dual enrollment lab..
She did offer her fellow classmates
some advice:
Be careful what you say. Financial
skills are important. And finally, there
are people, places and things outside
of Trenton, Florida, go graduates
should know that they do not have
to stay in Gilchrist County to.be suc-
cessful..She pointed to the success of
Oprah, who was born into poverty in
rural Mississippi.
"High school is an ending, but not
the ending of life; it's just the be-
ginning," Boyles said. "So don't be
sad."'
Salutatorian Olivia Andrews, who


according to her principal was known
for her beautiful prom dresses, en-
couraged her fellow classmates to
hold themselves to a higher standard
and never be afraid to accept help
from others.
"Individuals can bring change, but
there is power in a group," Andrews
said. "It's vital to try your hardest and
give back."
According to Langford, the se-
nior class logged a combined total of
4,000 community service hours giv-
ing back to the community.
Superintendent Don Thomas
awarded the seniors with diplomas,
as beach balls were blown up and
tossed around by members of the
senior class still in their seats. The
memorable ceremony also included a
large group of motorcycle riders, who
came to support a graduate, cranking
up their engines and revving them up

to a deafening roar when the senior's
name was called.
Just before the seniors walked
slowly across the football field to
toss their caps in the air, senior OJ


George, who Langford said
the strongest morals and value
ever seen" prayed over the gra
speaking about his own relat
with Jesus Christ.

According to Superintendent Don
Thomas, both Trenton and Bell el-
ementary schools scored above the
state average in math on the FCAT
test.
"I am very pleased with the work
that occurred in our elementary
schools this year," Thomas said.
Gilchrist County's Third Grade
FCAT results are very similar to last
year's results. According to Educa-
tion Commissioner Dr. Eric J. Smith,
the statewide average performance is
essentially the same in 2011, as it was
in 2010. Commissioner Smith ex-
plains that this is expected since the
method used to link the score scales
d, "has of the older FCAT assessments to the
aes I'venew FCAT 2.0 assessments results in
aes I've the same percentage of students state-
duates,hip wide scoring at each achievement
onship level in 2011, as they did in 2010.
The Florida Department of Educa-
tion is transitioning from the Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) to the FCAT 2.0, to align
with the new Next Generation Sun-
shine State Standards (NGSSS) in
reading, mathematics, and science,
in place of the Sunshine State Stan-
dards. The transition to FCAT 2.0 be-
gins this year with the Reading and
Mathematics assessments. Sherry
Lindsey, Bell Elementary School
Principal shared how proud she was
of her third grade students for excel-
ling on the new FCAT 2.0 assess-
ments. "The students' efforts and the
dedicated work of teachers resulted
in outstanding proficiency levels."


Third grade results are of particular
importance since they are linked to a
Florida Law which states that third
graders who score at Level 1 in Read-
ing on the FCAT must be retained
(not promoted to the fourth grade).
Gilchrist County School District is
extremely proud that the majority of
our students are not in jeopardy.
The scores can be divided into five
levels with Level 1 being the lowest
level and 5 being the highest level.
The chart below indicates the per-
centage of students at each school
according to reading and math that
scored a Level 3,.4 or 5.
"Math standards for third grade
changed this year," shared Wendy
O'Steen, Director of Elementary
Education. "Students were required
to perform at a higher level which
involved multiple step problem solv-
ing and algebraic thinking." Tren-
ton Elementary School Administra-
tion expressed how proud they are
of their teachers and their students.
One of the Bell Elementary teachers
stated, "Before the test scores arrived
the kids were frazzled, concerned,
anxious and trembling, but after the
scores arrived they are frolicking,
charged, and tickled!."
Parents have been notified if their
child is eligible to attend Third Grade
Reading Camp. The camp is sched-
uled to begin on June 13 and run
through July 22. The location has
yet to be determined. If you have
any questions regarding Third Grade
Reading Camp, please contact the
principal at your child's school.

Ranger Career Workshop is June 23


The Lower Suwannee and Cedar
Keys National Wildlife Refuges an-
nounce the first "Building a Ranger
Workshop" on Thursday, June 23,
from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Learn skills needed to do the work,
how to apply for such jobs, and how
to get your foot-in-the-door for a
rewarding career. The workshop is
developed for grades 9-12, includ-
ing 2011 graduates. Rangers are usu-


ally seen on a trail, giving naturalist
walks and talks, or padding along a
tidal creek with a group of visitors.
So many people tell a Ranger, "Gee, I
wish 1 had your job!" or "I've always
wanted to be a Ranger."
Now's your chance! Students must
call the Refuge Ranger at 493-0238,
extension 223, to reserve one of the
ten spots for the workshop. Don't
miss this opportunity!
