City Commission


votes 4-1 to give


city manager a raise


By Cindy Jo Ayers
In a 4-1 vote the Trenton City Com-
missioners voted on Tuesday evening
to give City Manager Taylor Brown
a raise.*
When Brown was hired in April
2010 there was discussion on what
he should be paid. Brown requested
a salary of $47,500 and the commis-
sioners decided at the time that they
were willing to pay Brown $45,000.
At that time they told Brown that they
would revisit his salary in one year.
At the June 14th Trenton City
Commission meeting, Commissioner
Randy Rutter requested that the sub-
ject of City Manager Taylor Brown's
salary be added to the next meeting's
agenda.
Rutter told the other commission-
ers at the June 28th meeting that he
thought that Brown was due the sal-
ary increase to $47,500.
"I am very, very pleased with his
work and the direction we (the city)
are taking," Rutter said.
Brown had turned in a report to the
commissioners at the last meeting
outlining his accomplishments. In
the report, Brown stated that he along
with the help of the city staff had cut
$200,000 out of the budget, without
laying off any employees and with-
out sacrificing service to the public.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey stated
that he felt.a raise of 3 to 3.5 percent
was fair.
Rutter reminded the commission-
ers that when former City Manager
Jered Ottenwess left he was being
paid $52,000 after five years on the
job.
Mayor Glen Thigpen told the com-
missioners that he felt if they could
not give a raiseto the entire staff they
should not give one to Brown.
Commissioner Marcia Hellams
said that she felt discussion about
Brown's salary lad nothing to do
with what other employees would be
paid.
Decisions on employee raises are
made during the budgeting process,
which starts next month.


Taylor Brown
After much discussion, a final vote
was made by the entire board as they
were all in attendance. The commis-
sioners were all in favor of the addi-
tional salary for Brown with the ex-
ception of Thigpen who voted no.
In other commission meeting news,
there was discussion on the removal
of an oak tree next to the home's of
Kathy Powers Pipkins and Eleanor
Asbell. The tree is on city property
and recently split. Both ladies had
damage to their homes due to the tree
failing and they requested during the
June 14 meeting that the city remove
it as soon as possible. During that
meeting the commissioners took the
.best bid, \hich a iii-idh in L.Lui ',in
Tree Service of Chiefland.
City Attorney David M. Lang cau-
tioned the commissioners that they
needed to make sure that Langston
has workers compensation insurance.
As it turned out three of the four tree
services that turned in bids for the
job did not have this insurance. Only
Gaston's Tree Service in Gainesville
had the insurance. Gaston's bid was
over $1,000 more than Langston's
bid.
City Manager Taylor Brown stated
that several of the local small busi-
nesses that the city uses often do not

Local physician assistant

inspires Brittany Ozment


By Carrie A. Mizell
Like many children growing up in
Gilchrist County, Brittany. Ozment
went to see "Dr. Gary" whenever
she got sick or just needed a routine
physical for school.
"Dr. Gary is what I always knew as
a doctor," Ozment said.
Which makes it all the more spe-
cial that Dr. Gary Rexroat, who was
Florida's first physician assistant,
attended Ozment's own graduation
from the College of Medicine School
of Physician Assistant Studies at the
University of Florida on June 18,
2011.
The 2003 Trenton High School
graduate said the physician assistants
at Trenton Medical Center and Bell
Family Health, now known as Palms
Medical Group, strongly influenced
her decision to go to PA school.
"Because of them, I knew all about
the job description," Ozment said. "I

Brittany Ozment
knew that I wanted to see patients,
diagnosis and treat them, but without
all the responsibility of being a medi-
cal doctor, specifically the liability of
being a doctor."
After graduating from high school,
Ozment attended Lake City Com-
munity College and then the Univer-
sity of Florida after graduating from
LCCC in 2005. In 2007 she gradu-
ated from UF with a degree in Food
Science and Human Nutrition.
PA school required experience in
the medical field, so Ozment got a
job at North Florida Regional Medi-
cal Center where she worked as a
nurse tech for two years. While at
NFRMC, Ozment said she learned
firsthand about good patient care and
bedside manner.
Once she was admitted to the Uni-
versity of Florida's PA school, Oz-
ment said she learned how to manage
her time while trying to juggle study
time, classes and time spent with
friends and family. Internship work
took her to the Pensacola Navy Hos-
pital, West Florida Hospital, Sacred
Heart Hospital, Escambia Cpmmu-
nity Care Clinic, and the Crestview


Medical Clinic.
"I really enjoyed the PA school ex-
perience," Ozment said, "and I am
looking forward to practicing."
For now the Trenton native has
moved home, much to the delight of
her proud parents David and Teresa
Ozment, and she is studying for her
Medical Board exam, which will be
Friday, July 8.
She is also looking forward to her
upcoming wedding to Daniel Irwin,
which will take place on July 30. Af-
ter uniting in marriage, the couple
plans to live in Virginia, where Dan-
iel ig stationed as a member of the
United States Navy.

By Carrie A. Mizell.
A 49-year-old Trentgn man was
seriously injured Monday night when
his vehicle struck a tree in Dixie
County.
David Bryant Jones, 49, of Tren-
ton and his passenger Edward John
Brownell, 52, also of Trenton were


both taken to Shands Hospital with
serious injuries after Jones crashed
his 2005 Chevroret pickup into sev-
eral trees.
According to Trooper W.L. Mc-
Gauley of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Jones was traveling west on
County Road 55 A, some four miles


west of Old Town when he failed to
negotiate a curve and drove onto the
south shoulder of the highway. The

Bell motorcyclist pulls


out in front of car


By Carrie A. Mizell
Three Bell residents were involved
in a Levy County accident on Friday
night.
Alan L. Howell, 57, of Bell, was
reportedly riding a motorcycle east
on NW 150th Lane approaching US
19, when he pulled into the path of
2004 Dodge Stratus driven by Sophia
M. Guerrero, 25, of Bell. Eight-year-
old Kya W. Rich, also of Bell, was a
passenger in the car at the time of the
accident.
According to Trooper Glen Ga-
nus of the Florida Highway Patrol,
Guerrero's car struck the left rear of
the motorcycle. The motorcycle then
traveled several feet in a southerly


direction on the centerline of US 19
until Howell was thrown from the
motorcycle.
Howell came to a final stop on the
centerline of the highway. He was
wearing a helmet at the time of the
accident and was reportedly taken to
Shands Hospital with serious inju-
ries.
The driver of the car and her pas-
senger, both of whom were wearing
seatbelts at the time of the accident,
were uninjured.
Trooper Ganus estimated $15,000
worth of damage to Howell's 2002
Harley motorcycle.
Howell was charged with Violation

Pollyanna

Submitted
Suwannee Valley Players is proud
to announce the opening of the Sum-
mer Youth Workshop 'production of
Pollyanna, adapted by Susan Parg-
man, and produced by special ar-
rangement with Pioneer Drama Ser-
vice, Inc,, Englewood, Colorado.
This is the delightful, classic tale of
the greatest optimist of all time... Pol-
lyanna! But it's much more than that.
It's the story of how a little girl's faith
in her father's promise--that you can
find something good about anything
that happens--guides her steadfastly
through circumstances that most
adults would find formidable. Pol-
lyanna (Sarah Manders) becomes'
an orphan, and she is placed into the
care of her purely pessimistic and
domineering aunt, Polly Harrington
(Adrianna Molnar). Talk about diffi-
cult circumstances--the clash of hope
and doubt meeting under the .same
roof! The town itself isn't much bet-
ter. Led by a "fire and brimstone"
pastor, Pastor Malden (Austin Ross),
whose favorite Bible verse is "Woe
unto you," folks are always com-
plaining, feeling sorry for themselves
and viewing their existence as dark
and dreary. Yet, Pollyanna faithfully
plays her "glad game," innocently
teaching it to others wherever she
goes. The hired help, such as maid
Nancy (Kristen'Wade), cook Mrs.
Durgin (Stephanie Seip) and garden-
er Old Tom (Micah Popp), seem to
catch on first. Other townspeople like
hypochondriac Mrs. Snow (Amanda
Barron) and her sarcastic daughter
Millie (Amaya Grant) slowly learn
the joy of the game, as does Mrs.
Benton (Samantha Johnson-Streit).
Charmingly narrated by Jimmy Bean
(Rhett Hoke), another orphan, we
also meet the hermit-like John Pend-
leton (Dalton Pitts) and Dr. Chilton
(Micah Popp), who had closed his
heart to taking risks... that is, until he
met Pollyanna. We're optimistic that
this fresh adaptation will put a smile

Suwannee

River Cleanup

scheduled

By Fritzi S. Olson,
Exe.-Director, Current Problems-
Friends of the Great Suwannee
SIn 2010, Current Problems formed
a partnership with the Suwannee Riv-
er Wilderness Trail Working Group
and the Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District. Our goal: to co-
ordinate a cleanup of the Suwannee
River from the Georgia state line to
the Gulf of Mexico.
The cleanup was. a huge success!
More than 500 volunteers worked
tirelessly along the shorelines, from
boats, kayaks, and on scuba to remove
almost 30,000 pounds of trash!
We hope you will join us as a spon-
sor for the 2nd Great Suwannee River
Cleanup and build on the success of
last year's event.
Like last year, the event will consist
of many small cleanup all along the
river during a three-month window
from September through November.
In addition to this great effort to
restore one of our state's historical
treasures, records kept of the clean-
up's achievements and totals will be
included in tallies of the International
Coastal Cleanup (Ocean Conservan-
cy) and the National River Cleanup
(American Rivers).
A kick-off celebration will be held
on September 10 at Ivy Memorial
Park in Branford. There will be fun
and food for all!
Details about the celebration will
be forthcoming on the Current Prob-
lems website.
We are looking for sponsorship
from businesses and organizations
that will lend financial and in-kind
support to help us clean up one of
Florida's most treasured waterways.
Through the generosity of donors,
we hope to continue this event as an
annual 'celebration and cleanup of
the Suwannee River. We need your
support to do that. Sponsors will
be included in marketing and pro-,
motional materials throughout the
duration of theevent, appear on the
Current Problems website, and on
the GSRCU Facebook page. We also
welcome sponsors to table at the cel-
ebration. *
Need more information? Ques-
tions? Please call me at 352-264-
6827 or e-mail aar@currentprob-
lems.org. I look forward to hearing
from you.
We are anticipating a very success-
ful cleanup again this year with many
of the Suwannee Basin's residents,
organizations, and businesses partici-
pating.

Naow atd 7The
By Carrie A. Mizell


Allie, Noah, Annabelle and Gus weren't too sure about their first week
of swim school.


Have you ever seen a big, pregnant
girl scale a chain link fence?
The thought crossed this momma's
mind several times last week as I
watched my 2-year-old take part in
her first swimming lesson. Oh, the
sobs! Not only did she cry, she also
cried out. Repeatedly, in fact. Over
and over again she would say, "I...
need...to...go...potty!"
I'll give Allie Claire this, she's one
smart cookie. She knew that pulling
the potty card would get her out of the
pool and into the arms of herymomma
pronto. Even the bathroom was look-
ing safe to my child, who wasn't too
sure about getting her head wet.
God bless her.
After 28 minutes spent crying, the
30-minute first lesson was over. I tell
you, I could hear the Hallelujah cho-
rus playing over and over in my head
as I strapped Allie into her car seat
and hauled her to the store for the
new movie I promised her if she'd
just make it through that swimming
lesson.
Despite her daddy's patient expla-
nation of, "Sometimes sweetie, we
all have to do things we don't want to
do..." Allie wanted no part of it and
told me that night she wasn't going
back because the pool was "danger-
ous" (her word, not mine).
I warned Paige Brookins when we

signed up for Brookins Swim School
that our class of 2-year-olds was a
dramatic bunch. But truthfully I had
no idea we would see so much car-
ryin' on. Between Allie, her cousin
Gus, and our good friends Annabelle
Whitehurst and Noah Owens there is
always a show.
By lesson two, Allie Claire was
ready, thanks in large part to my
promise of chocolate ice cream after
the class. Sadly, Annabelle cried on
Day 2. Lesson three and four were
much the same with Annabelle, Gus
and Nbah all crying throughout the
lessons.
I have to say, as the momma it's
hard to watch your child crying and
trying to escape the pool when the
instructors aren't looking, but I just
keep reminding myself and Allie that
all that spider walking along the edge
of the pool, blowing bubbles under
water and floating on her back will
pay off one day.
Ten or twelve years from now, I
just know I'm going to think back on
our two weeks at swim school this
summer and laugh over the antics, as
I watch my child and her oh so brave
cousin water ski down the Suwannee
River.
One day they will all be big swim-
mers, but it. probably won't be this
week.

Nehushtan
(Kent Heaton)


"Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea the
son of Elah, king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of
Ahaz, king ofJudah, began to reign. He was twenty-five
years old when he became king, and he reigned
twenty-nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name was
Abi the daughter of Zechariah. And he did what was
right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his
father David had done. He removed the high places and
broke the sacred pillars, cut down the wooden image
and broke in pieces the bronze serpent that Moses had
made; for until those days the children of Israel burned
incense to it, and called it Nehushtan" (2 Kings 18:1-4).
Centuries had passed since the tragic day the people
spoke against God and against Moses. The people had
grown weary and discouraged because things did not
seem to be going the way they thought it should. They
were dissatisfied with the providential care of God; they
wanted better things; they wanted what they wanted; their
hearts were filled with anger against God. To punish the
people the Lord "sent fiery serpents among the people,
and they bit the people; and many of the people of Israel
died" (Numbers 21:6). When the people repented and
asked for.deliverance God instructed Moses to make a
"bronze serpent, and put it on a pole; and so it was, if a
serpent had bitten anyone, when he looked at the bronze
serpent, he lived" (Numbers 21:9).
By the time of Hezekiah the symbol of their
deliverance from rebellion became once again a symbol
of rebellion as the people burned incense to Nehushtan
("a piece of brass"). We find the brazen serpent had
become an object of idolatry. How could something that
represented the power of God and His mercy become the


object of idolatry? The nature of man is not surprised by
these actions of seeking physical satisfaction in worship
with even those things that reflect the glory of God. The
Lord forbade the use of images for worship because truth
came from only one God (Psalm 115:3-8; Isaiah 46:5-11;
Deuteronomy 4:11-16).
Isaiah defined the nature of God when he writes: "I
will not give My glory to another" (Isaiah 48:11). Yet the
people of God had turned the power of God into their
own idol and object of worship. Hezekiah exercised great
courage to destroy the ancient artifact rich with history
and truth. But it was destroyed because the servants of
God had turned the purity of God's word into their own
selfish design. The message of the brazen serpent was
made to fit the dogmas of man's own wisdom and desire
of the day.
The Bible is an ancient book that represents the power
and mercy of God. Through its holy pages man is able to
see his own rebellion and the only answer to death Jesus
Christ. Yet today man now worships the Bible as a book
designed for his own needs. The Bible is worshipped as a
book that is defined by one's own interpretation and will.
Why are there so many churches and faiths today?.One
man looks at the Bible one way and another man looks at
the Bible his way and a third man looks at the Bible his
way and on it goes. I wonder if there is any way Ior all
men to understand the Bible? Could it be the Bible has
become Nehushtan? Paul said we can read it and
understand it (Ephesians 3:1-5). Peter said the Iord has
given us everything we need pertaining to life and
godliness (2 Peter 1:3). If God is not the problem, who is'?

public access from March through
June to provide more security to the
rookery while mature birds nest and
rear their young. On June 30th the
closure ended; nesting time would

Happiness may be thought, sought
or caught...but not bought.
I never really liked okra but over
the last few years I have come to love
it. Fried, stewed in tomatoes or large
handfuls of okra tossed into gumbo
really makes my mouth water.
I'm not sure if I've shared this tale
with y'all or not? That is what hap-
pens when you've written over 750
columns over the past 15 or so years.
My, that is a whole lot of carrying' on.
The good news is many of you may
not have a memory any better than
mine and you might not remember
this tale if I did share it with y'all be-
fore.
It all took place in the "Okra
Patch" in August of my 13th year.
Now, mind you, I had me one more
sassy mouth, the kind only a 13 year
old can have. As I recall the okla had
done real well that year., As aTarm-
er's daughter I was required to pick
vegetables from the time they be-
gan to come in starting in early June
throughout the summer until the last
vegetable stopped producing. Even
before the picking began I had to hoe
the weeds and grass out of the rows
from early spring till time to harvest
the vegetables and put them up.
That year, the okra began produc-
ing when it was about knee high and
by August I was reaching up over my
head and bending the plants down so
I could cut the pods off. I'm not sure
how many rows we had but it seems
like there must have been 8 or 10 and
they were long rows: My daddy nev-
er did plant a short row of anything.
It was hot and as my grandmother
would say, "I had me one more
square gut full" of that okra patch.
Anyway my mouth was running non-
stop, complaining every breath about
that stinking okra. On this particular
day it just so happened that my fa-
ther was cutting the okra right along
beside me, usually my mother was in
the garden picking with me and she
was familiar with my sassy mouth.
Daddy on the other hand was usually

riod dress will tell us tales of the light
station and its challenges, as well as
the history of the two cemeteries on
the island, both Civil War sailors' and
light keepers'.
-Catch a tour boat from the city
docks, rent a vessel, or take your own
to Seahorse Key for a celebration of
wildlife hosted by refuge staff. Enjoy
the out of doors at the Cedar Keys
National Wildlife Refuge, where
wildlife comes first.

uge System is a part, is the.principal

off farming in a nearby field and he
was not used to my nonstop mouth.
After about 15 minutes or so he had
enough and told me to hush up and
cut the okra.
Let's just say, my daddy didn't
have any patience for people who
don't want to work in the heat or oth-
erwise. It was not in his plan to raise
any children who were not willing to
work. Anyway I just could not keep
my mouth shut so I complained on.
By the way, did I mention I wasn't a
very smart 13-year old.
It was not long before he had
enough and snatched u'p a couple of
stalks of okra, pulling them right out
of the ground and whipped me good
with okra sitlks. Right there in the
patch, I got one of the worst whip-
pings of my life. Unfortunately for
me I had worn shorts to the garden
that day and my legs did not stop
stinging for a full 24 hours. Let's just
say out of all the spankings or whip-
pings I had as a child this was prob-
ably the most memorable.
At 13, I was sure I had the worst
parents in the world but at 54 I'm
sure I had the very best and I'm re-
ally glad they saw the importance of
teaching their children to work.
The following recipe is good, and
a great way to use some of the won-
derful fresh okra that is in the stores
this time of year or if you are lucky
enough to have okra to cut this is a
great way to use it.



1 4-pound chicken, cut up
5 or 6 cups water
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 carrot, sliced
cup chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped onion
bay leaf
1 14-ounce can tomatoes
2 cups fresh okra, sliced
,_ green a/k/a bell pepper, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
Cooked rice
Wash chicken well and place in the
bottom of a large pot. Add water and
salt and pepper, cover and boil over
medium heat for one hour or longer
cook until the chicken is very tender.
Skim off as much of the chicken fat
as you like and add all the vegetables
and seasonings and simmer for 40
minutes or so. Remove bay leaf and
serve over hot rice. You may have
to add a little extra water, but in the
end you want a thick stew which may
take a little extra boiling to reduce
some of the liquid if it is too watery.
Taste and adjust the seasonings. This
is a mild gumbo with a fresh taste
and it's not very spicy which makes it
work well in the heat of the summer.
If you want a little heat add some red
pepper flakes or a little red pepper.
Whether you debone the chicken or
not is up to you.

THURSDAY, JULY 7,2011 GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Jleart Matters

By Angie Land


Vacation...time away from work,
household chores and the normal
fast-pace of life!
As I write this, my family is spend-
Sing a week at the beach, doing all the
Things that make up what we call "a
Good vacation": sleeping late, eating
meals together, playing board games,
watching movies, and especially en-
joying the water. And yet, I wonder if
Sany of you wrestle with yourself over
how to spend that "down time" like
I do.
My struggle is that I hate to waste
time, By nature, I am fAirly organized
and need an overall plan each day in
order to get things accomplished. It
can be really hard for me to turn that
off while on vacation. As a much
younger mom and wife, the struggle
to accomplish something even on va-
cation had the potential to make me,
(as well as everyone else) miserable.
Funny how the older I get, the more
value I find in rest, fun, and time with
my family. Still, as I packed for this
week away, my bag held four or five
books that I want to read, my laptop,
a planner for next year that needs to
be organized, as well as a bible study
that I am working on. There was
barely room for my clothes.
So it was quite appropriate for God
to bring this up to me during my qui-
et time that morning. I was reading
a devotion based on the life of Jacob


found in Genesis. In Genesis 47, Ja-
cob and his family have traveled to
Egypt to see his estranged son, Jo-
seph, and to live in the land of Gos-
hen because of the terrible famine in
the land.
"Then Joseph brought his father
Jacob in and presented him before.
Pharaoh. After Jacob blessed Pha-
raoh, Pharaoh asked him, "How old
are you?" And Jacob said to Pharaoh,
"The years of my pilgrimage are hun-
dred and thirty. My years have been
few and difficult, and they do not
equal the years of the pilgrimage of
my fathers." Genesis 47:7-10
The. word "difficult" can be trans-
lated: evil, distress, adversity, af-
fliction, calamity, mischief, trouble,
wretchedness, and wickedness. Ja-
cob spent much of his life deceiving
his family, running from God and
looking out for number one. My take
on his explanation to Pharaoh is that
Jacob understood his sin to be the
cause of his difficult life, and he re-
gretted the "waste." God clearly im-
pressed on my heart that time spent
resting, creating memories with my
family, and enjoying His creation is
not wasted time...as long as He is in
His rightful place in my heart. On the
other hand, no amount of work will
bring real accomplishment if He is
not. Because every heart matters...

Rick Bender


Submitted by Barry Hummel, Jr.,
MD, Quit Doc Research and Educa-
tion Foundation
On June 17, 2011, cancer survivor
and anti-tobacco activist Rick Bend-
er gave a compelling presentation on
the effects of spit tobacco to a group
of local health care providers and
Students Working Against Tobacco.
Mr. Bender shared his very dramatic
personal story as part of the 3rd An-
nual Rural Tobacco Summit held at
the Pine Grove Baptist Church.
Mr. Bender told the attendees of his
use of spit tobacco as a twelve-year
old boy, with his biggest influence
being the use of chewing tobacco by
major league baseball players.
As a result, Mr. Bender developed
tongue cancer at the age of 26, requir-
ing four major surgeries to remove
one-third of his tongue and one-half
of his jaw. Also, as a result of the ex-
tensive surgery, Mr. Bender suffered
nerve damage that cost him' partial
use of his right arm. Mr. Bender also
pointed out that he continues to have
ongoing dental and jaw problems as
a result of the radiation therapy re-
quired to cure his cancer.
Over the last twenty years, Mr.
Bender has become an outspoken
critic of the tobacco industry, particu-
larly the advertising of spit tobacco
as a safe alternative to smoking. He
used this opportunity to share his ex-
tensive knowledge on spit tobacco
with the conference attendees. He
is particularly concerned about the
way such products are marketed to
children with the addition of candy-
flavoring and the creation of newer
"user-friendly" products such as snus


and dissolvable tobacco products.
Mr. Bender is a nationally recog-
nized spokesperson on the danger-
ous effects of spit tobacco. He has
testified in front of The United States
Congress, as well as a' number of
state legislatures. He has also ap-
peared in numerous documentaries,
including films for HBO and ESPN.
He is currently working with Major
League Baseball on the issue of the
continued use of spit tobacco by pro-
fessional, baseball players. For infor-
mation on Rick Bender's work, visit

This year, the program has been
held in Hillsborough and saw 12
commissioners graduate in June with
a total of 106 graduating since the in-
ception of the program in 2006.
"This certification allows our citi-


zen electorate to become experts in
county government improving their
communities," said FAC Executive
Director Chris Holley.
"Through FAC's education pro-
grams we are able to teach commis-
sioners how to advance their policies
through the complexities of govern-
ment bureaucracies," Holley later
added.

Mrs. Luana Schofield
Mrs. Luana Schofield, wife of
the late Woodburn T. Schofield and
mother of six children, John Scho-
field, Woodburn Schofield Jr., Debo-
rah Pualani Blackmon, Rex Scho-
field, Kathy Maelani Hernandez and
Morgan Schofield, was reunited with
"Scho" and her grandson, Baby Ru-
ben, on Saturday, June 25, 2011. She
was surrounded by her loving sons
and daughters, grandchildren and
extended family, listening to her be-
loved Hawaiian music as she left our
arms to meet her Lord Jesus Christ.
Luana or "Tutu," was born on June 1,
1934, in the Puna district of the island
of Hawai'i to Josephine Ka'awa. Her
grandparents'were Andrew and Kala-
malu Ka'awa (Ka'awalauolepio) of
Kaupo, Mau'i in the Hana district.
Luana's mother died when she was
three years old and she and her two
sisters were placed in the Susannah
Wesley Home for Girls in the Kalihi
District of Honolulu, O'ahu. She was
raised in the Home by House Moth-
ers and became sisters with the other
Susie Girls. She was popular at Far-
rington High School (class of 1952)
and in her senior year was a cheer-
leader and the O'ahu Princess for the
school's Lei Day ho'okupu. After
graduation Luana joined the U.S. Air
Force and was stationed at Ellington
Air Force Base near Houston, Texas.
At the beginning of her career, as a
W.A.F, she met the love of her life,
"Scho," and they were married April
10, 1954. She danced the hula and
sang in her own Hawaiian combo
traveling and performing across
Texas. Luana and Scho traveled the


world with their family for 25 years
and after Scho retired from the U.S.
Air Force in 1979, Luana attended
classes at Glendale Community Col-
lege. She was a member of the GCC
choir and was featured as Bloody
Mary in GCC's "South Pacific."
Unfortunately, shortly afterwards
she contracted lupus and immedi-
ately had to curtail her pursuits. In
1981, Luana and Scho and other lo-
cal friends from Hawaii founded the
Phoenix area Hawaiian club, "Lau
Kanaka No Hawaii," with the pur-
pose of sharing the Hawaiian culture
and it has grown tremendously over
the years.
Luana's surviving family includes
her six children; three daughter-in-
laws, Darla, Patti and Jennifer; local
nephew Joe; 13 grandchildren, Bren-
don, Jeremy, Justin, Kealoha, Bry-
anna, Aaron, Ryan, Robert, Morgan,
SMakoa, Kalani, Malia and Woody;
Sand five great-grandchildren. Malia
Brooke, Brandon, Jordan, Xavier and
Bailey. She has two sisters, Chris
Cui and husband Ben in Honolulu,
Hawaii and Isabella Shue and hus-
band Harry in Las Vegas, Nevada,
and a large number of nieces and
nephews in Hawaii and the mainland.
Even though she developed several
health challenges over the last two
decades, Luana lived each day with
a wonderful smile and hearty laugh.
She shared her life and love with all
in the true "Aloha Spirit."
Luana's memorial service was
held on Thursday, June 30, at West
Resthaven Cemetery and Funeral
Home'in Glendale, Arizona.

Biologists with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission's
(FWC) Fish and Wildlife Research

sistance with a research project fo-

recreational fishery.
FWRI biologists will approach an-
glers at public areas along the Gulf

fishing piers and marinas, to request
participation in the study. These biol-
ogists will distribute survey cards de-
signed to collect detailed information
on fishing trips targeting red snapper.
This information includes where red
snapper are caught and released, the-
type of fishing equipment used, and
the condition of the fish when re-
leased. Anyone fishing for red snap-
per in Florida can also request a post-
age-paid survey card in the mail, by

Hospice of the Nature Coast plans local expansion


LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Submitted
Hospice of Citrus County, Inc./
Hospice of the Nature Coast plans
to increase availability of servic-
es to patients and families in the
Levy County area by constructing a
16,100-square-foot, triple-use facil-
ity on 1.9 acres along North Main
Street in Chiefland.
Gray Construction Services of
Trenton has been chosen as the build-
ing contractor and will begin con-
struction soon. Local resources will
be used for the project, as available.
Hospice of Citrus County, Inc./
Hospice of the Nature Coast is a
not-for-profit charitable corporation,
licensed in 1985, which serves Ala-
chua, Bradford, Citrus, Columbia,
Dixie, Gilchrist, Hamilton, Lafayette,
Levy, Putnam, Suwannee and Union
counties.
Patients and families in the Levy
County area currently receive servic-
es from staff based in Inglis or High
Springs. "Thanks to the support and
generosity of so many people since


bringing our traditional style of hos-
pice care to patients and families in
north central Florida, we are able to
expand our opportunity to serve this
