Trenton teen diagnosed with 4 types of cancer


By Carrie A. Miiell
Corbin Wiggins should have been
on the basketball court last Thursday
night playing in a summer scrimmage
game at Bronson. Instead, the Tren-
ton High School junior sat courtside
cheering on his teammates.
It was while undergoing a routine
sports physical two weeks ago, that
Corbin's pediatrician noticed a mass
and referred the 17-year-old to a ra-
diologist.
From there Corbin was sent on to
a urologist, who confirmed mixed
germ cell carcinoma generated from
testicular cancer.
"We were pretty floored," said An-
gie Wiggins, Corbin's mother. "You


tell yourself that it's just going to be
a biopsy and they won't find any-
thing..."
Instead, the urologist asked Corbin
how long it had been sifice he had
eaten, because he needed to be rushed
into surgery right away.
Last week, as Corbin was recov-
ering from the surgery, the Wiggins
family learned that Corbin has a to-
tal of four different types of cancer,
three of which can be treated with
chemotherapy. The fourth type of
cancer Corbin has is very aggressive,
and rapidly growing. Doctors have
found that it has already moved into
the lymph nodes around his kidneys.
This week, Corbin will undergo an


MRI to determine if the cancer has
reached his brain. Then on Friday,
Corbin and his family will find out if
he has to undergo surgery to remove
the cancerous lymph nodes around
his kidneys or if a brain operation
will be necessary.
"Emotionally Corbin is doing re-
ally good," Angie said. "We are try-
ing to prepare him for the chemo-
therapy."
According to his mother, the Tigers
baseball and basketball player has
lost four pounds over the last week.
But through this trial, Corbin is
learning that he has the support of
his peers, many of whoik broke from
football workouts last Thursday to


walk over, shake his hand and pat him
on the back, before offering words of
encouragement.
Trenton High School Principal Ly-
nette Langford said on Tuesday that
Corbin is a great kid and everyone
loves him.
"He always has a smile on his face
and tries his hardest in all he does,"
Langford said.
An account has been set up to ben-
efit Corbin Wiggins, who is the old-
est of Angie Wiggins' four children,
at Capital City Bank.
"It's hard to say what we need right
now, other than prayers," Angie said.
"We are just waiting to see what the
doctor says on Friday."


This Trenton home, which was once owned by Erline Peterson, sold at auction to Murrel Hines on Saturday morning for $44,000.


Highest bidder buys home downtown

In 2010, 79 homes in Gilchrist County were foreclosed on and went to sale


By Carrie A. Mizell
A downtown Trenton home val-
ued at $86,567 in 2010, sold Satur-
day morning at auction for $44,000
to the highest bidder.
Advertised as a three bedroom,
two bath home that was built in
1940 and could use some clean-
ing up, the brick home, with hard-
wood floors throughout, is located
at 209 NE Third Avenue. Owned
by SunState Federal Credit Union,


the 1,720 sq. ft., single family home
boasts an in ground swimming pool
and a detached garage with a work-
shop.
John Campen of Campen Auctions,
described the home as, 'a great fixer
upper or rental home."
Over 100 people showed interest in
the Saturday morning auction. Sever-
al bidders returned on Saturday after
touring the property on June 18 dur-
ing an open house. Ultimately, Mur-


rel Hines was the high bidder on Sat-
urday morning, picking up the home
for $40,000 plus a $4,000 buyer's
premium.
According to property records pro-
vided by the Gilchrist County Prop-
erty Appraiser's Office, the Trenton
home was most recently owned by
Doris Mashbum and Arthur Ham-
mel before it was taken by SunState
Federal Credit Union on September
8, 2010. Mashbum and Hammel pur-


chased the home, which sits on a
corer lot, from Joyce Fulford Goss
in 2008 for $88,000.
Lyndsay Ayers, deputy clerk at
Sthe Gilchrist County Clerk's Office
said on Monday that nine homes in
Gilchrist County have been fore-
closed on and gone to sale in 2011.
That figure is significantly less than'
2010, when a reported 79 homes in
Gilchrist County were foreclosed
on and went to sale.

ly face, principal Jay Jolicoeur.
A former dean of students at Tren-
ton High School, Jolicoeur officially

day, July 7. Jolicoeur filled a position
vacated by Riley Deen, who retired
as Trenton Elementary School's prin-
cipal on May 31.
According to BillieJo Bible, per-
sonnel specialist in human resources
at the Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict, 10 applications were submitted
to the school district from interested

recently, he earned the distinguished
title of "Teacher of the Year" at Santa
Fe High School, where he was also
voted by the students, "Most Out-
standing Teacher."
Jolicoeur is looking forward to the
new challenge of working as Trenton
Elementary School's principal this
fall.


North Florida Holsteins seeks

modified water use permit g


By John M. Ayers
North Florida Holsteins of Bell has
submitted a complete application to
Suwannee River Water Management
District (SRWMD)) seeking a modi-
fied water use permit of 2.7175 mil-
lion gallons a day and a maximum
daily withdrawal of 15.5016 million
gallons a day.
SRWMD staff reviewed the ap-
plication and recommended that

the governing board approve the application with 17
standard conditions and six special limiting condi-
tions. The governing board is scheduled to consider
this application during a meeting on Aug. 9, 2011, that
is open to the public.
The existing permit identifies a present use of 1.5709
million gallons a day average with a maximum daily
withdrawal of 5.9184 million gallons per day..The
modified water use permit is requesting 2.7175 mil-
lions gallons a day average with a maximum of 15.5
millions gallons a day withdrawal. The present water
use permit will expire April 7, 2020.'
The water use calculations were based upon the ir-
rigated acreage, crop rotation and crop types provided
by the applicant. Crops include a rotation of pasture or
corn and sorghum with rye grasses planted each year
during the winter. The permit project area includes 14
present active wells and seven new proposed wells.
The new wells have been identified for,irrigation and
livestock use. These wells include one 2-inch well,
four 4-inch wells, one 6-inch well, two 8-inch wells,
11 10-inch wells and two 12-inch wells. The project
area consists of 2,050 acres of which approximately
805 acres are being irrigated using ground water and
dairy wastewater. North Florida Holsteins has a 4,600
cow milking herd and 3,900 head of dry cows.
North Florida Holsteins has completed the water
conservation information for Center Pivot Irrigation
and Livestock Watering and Cleaning systems. The
dairy is also using approximately .235 million gallons
a day of wastewater on crops to reduce their need for
groundwater. The SRWMD staff identified the pro-
posed modified water use permit would not violate
minimum flows and levels at any downstream points
along the Suwannee River.
For more information on this, call 1 (800) 226-1066
or visit the website: www.srwmd.state.fl.us/.


The location of the wells are identified by the yellow circles, the irrigations systems are identified by the blue stars and the or-
ange border displays the project boundary. Map provided by the SRWMD.

Gilchrist County VPK awarded


$90,000 grant


Submitted

standing success rate. We are so
pleased to be able to support this
organization," said Debbie Mason,


President and CEO of United Way of
North Central Florida.
The grant amount was recom-
mended by United Way's Commu-
nity Investment volunteer teams who
heard presentations from organiza-
tions throughout the area and recom-
mended allocations to the United Way
Board of Directors based on how the
proposals. could address community
needs.
Gilchrist County School District

Character Council's

Personality of the Month


By Geneva Cornwell
Service is a vital leadership per-
spective for any family, church, com-
munity, business, school, or govern-
ment agency. The question could be
asked, "Where would our society be
if it were not for the service to oth-
ers which particular people perform,
especially to those in need?"
One of the definitions of service is
"to be sufficient for a purpose." An-
other great explanation of the word
is "anything done by way of devo-
tion to a superior, usually voluntarily,
while' performing duties required."
A person who truly wishes to serve
does so by yielding obedience to an
official while promoting any good
such as happiness, interest, and ad-
vantage. Gilchrist County has so
many wonderful citizens who believe
in service and give of their time in
the many civic organizations which
abound here. Gilchrist County can
readily be described as "being a very
active county."
The personality of the month cho-
sen by the Character Council, is one
who emulates service, Mr. Charles
Wilkerson. He is a four-year Ma-
rine Corps veteran who believes that
one who serves understands a need
of someone else, sees it and meets
it, freeing them to accomplish their
goals, while also investing time and
energy in their success. Wilkerson is
a salaried Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office school crossing guard and is
committed to service in looking out
for the safety of students as they go to
and from school. He began this job
in 2004.
Wilkerson's ideal situation is look-
ing out for the needs of someone else.
He is a retired orange grove caretaker
and related that he learned much from
his father regarding service. His fa-
ther also advised him "to do the best
with his ability with whatever tools
are available."
Wilkerson is a member of Priscilla
Baptist Church and believes that to
be successful one must put God first,
family second, and job third. He


Charles Wilkerson


shared, "By doing that, God will give
the guidance for doing what is right.
By honoring the Lord, He will lead
and give the ability to successfully
accomplish any task." Wilkerson
also feels that when a person does
their best everyone will be happy, es-
pecially if a pleasing nature is dem-
onstrated while the job is being done.
Wilkerson's motto for life, "Whatev-
er needs to be done, do it!" In service
to others there is a display of humil-
ity and in being a servant/leader one
proves faithfulness and honor, while
following Christ's example.

City considers options on tree removal


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commission re-
cently discussed the removal of an
oak tree next to the home of Kathy
Powers Pipkins and Eleanor Asbell.
The tree is on city property and re-
cently split. Both ladies had damage
to their homes due t6 the tree falling
and they requested during the June
14 city council meeting that the city
remove the tree as soon as possible.
During that meeting the commis-
sioners took the best bid, which was
from Langston Tree Service of Chief-
land.
City Attorney David M. Lang cau-


tioned the commissioners that they
needed to make sure that Larigston
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 Gainesyille
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 use often do not
have workers compensation insur-
ance. Brown went on to say these
smaller locally owned businesses are

usually less expensive than the larger
firms from out of the county. He went
on to say that he hated to see the city
pay more for the same work. Brown
told the commissioners .that he had
contacted the city's insurance car-
rier through the Florida League of
Cities and their representative said
that the city could pay the insurance
for each time they used one of these
small local companies. On the day of
the meeting, Brown was waiting on
a formula sheet from the insurance
company to compare how much the
city would pay for the insurance cov-
erage plus the lowest bid, compared
to the higher bid.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey made
a motion to proceed within the week
with whichever bid works out to be
the least expensive for the city. All
agreed that the tree needed to be re-
moved as soon as possible.
The commissioners also approved
the sending of two thank you letters
to Lancaster Correctional Institution
and the Gilchrist County Commis-
sion. The letters will be sent in ap-
preciation of the work that an inmate
crew and the County Road Depart-
ment crew did recently after severe
weather caused trees to fall on sev-
eral streets in Trenton.

Dear Sir,
I have never written to a newspa-
per before, but 1 would like for the
citizens of Gilchrist County to realize
how lucky we are to have the Emer-
gency Medical Services we have in
our county. On June 3, 2011, 1 had to
call 911 and the response was terrific.
The professional staff members that
responded were knowledgeable and

Casey Anthony
Trial
Dear Editor,
As is the case with almost everyone
that I know, I have been watching the
progress of the murder trial of Casey
Anthony in connection with the death
of her daughter Caylee.
After watching all the displays
of concern and outrage outside the
courthouse and on the news and the
physical confrontations in an effort
to have a seat in the courtroom and
the reaction after the verdict, which
in my opinion was the result of a total
failure of the justice system, I can't
help but wonder how many of these
concerned and outraged people are in
favor of abortion?
I am not passing judgment or
pointing fingers. I just think that if
people could stop and think about
this tragedy for a moment and how
horrible and terrifying it was for this
beautiful little child and then realize
that the procedures .used in aborting
(killing) an unborn child are every
bit as horrible and terrifying as it
was for Caylee Anthony, then these
people might want to rethink their
position on abortion. If you go back
a couple years to the time when Cay-
lee was still in her mother's, Casey,
belly and you let some doctor do the
dirty work by aborting and disposing
of the child's body without you'ever
having to see it, would that somehow
make it ok?
I believe that one child's life is just
as valuable as another, bor or not
yet born. If you disagree, just take a
look at one of the young children that
you know and ask yourself if you can
think of any reason in this world to
end their young life.
The point is that there are hundreds


Date


High


if not thousands of little Caylees
killed every day without notice just
because we choose to call it abortion
instead of murder. I won't attempt
to describe the procedures that are
used in an abortion beyond to say
that they are every bit as horrible and
inhumane as what little Caylee suf-
fered. A true Christian cannot con-
done abortion nor could they support
any politician or public. servant that
does. For those that are not Chris-
tians and don't believe in God; I have
a news flash. You are going to meet
him anyway!

God Said Nothing
(Kent Heaton)


The Garden of Eden is where man finds all the answers
to the nature -of his relationship with his Creator; the
responsibility expected of him by the Creator; the
judgment because of this relationship and action toward
.the Creator. Man was placed in the garden to "till and
keep it" (Genesis 2:15). "Out of the ground the Lord
God made to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight
and good for food, the tree of life also in the midst of the
garden, and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil"
(Genesis 2:9). A wonderful paradise is given to man to
live and enjoy communing with the Creator.
This garden of peace did not come without
responsibility. As he was responsible to care for the
garden, man was also given law requiring
accountability.' "And the Lord God commanded the man,
saying, 'You may freely eat of every tree of the garden;
but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you
shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall
die'" (Genesis 2:16-17). The Creator expected man to
obey His law: to tend the Garden of Eden and to be
careful tending his own heart.
Adam and Eve understood the nature of their
relationship with God. They also knew the responsibility
expected of them by their Creator. The Lord clearly laid
out the law in terms easily understood. Genesis 3:2,3
reveals this understanding as Eve recounted the comriand
of God to Satan. It was in this moment of temptation that
a remarkable thing happened. As the words of deception
fell from the lips of the deceiver, Eve looked at the tree
and seeing "that the tree was good for food, and that it
was a delight to the eyes, and that the tree was to be
desired to make one wise, she took of its fruit and ate;
and she also gave some to her.husband, and he ate"


(Genesis 3:6). The


Creator said nothing. Jehovah God did


not come quickly to the ear of the woman and command
her to stop. Angels were not sent in fiery chariots to
withhold the hand of the woman from the fruit "she
took of its fruit and ate" and so did Adam.
The Garden of Eden establishes the pattern of God's
relationship with man. It is selfish man that desires to be
admonished in his own selfish acts and blames God when
no action is taken. Could God have stopped Eve from
taking the fruit? There is no doubt. Was it within the
power of God to have removed Satan from the garden and
forbid him from speaking to the woman? There is no
doubt. Would Jehovah be a righteous, merciful and loving
God to have done- so and thereby never allow man to
make his own decisions? The scriptures clearly teach the
pattern of the garden: God establishes His law that man
can understand; God expects man to obey His law; God
will not interfere when man disobeys.
We want God to stop us. Our rebellious heart cries out
running to rebellion for God to stop us. This removes
guilt from our actions. God shows us in the garden and
throughout the revelation of His will that He will say,
nothing. He said nothing when Cain killed Abel; as
Abraham lied; when David went into Bathsheba; and so
forth. The lesson is that God has spoken and said all that
man need know of HIis will.
We are responsible for our own rebellion! Our
judgment.comes from our actions. "For we must all
appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each
one may receive good or. evil, according to what he has
done in the body" (2 Corinthians 5:10). What I have
done!!!

It seems like John and I.have been
on an eating binge since the July 4th
weekend. All manner of good food
has come our way. Just last weekend
we were blessed with two really fine
swamp cabbages sent from a long-
time family friend who has the larg-
est stand of cabbage palm trees that
my husband has ever seen.
Isn't it funny how a big pot of well
seasoned swamp cabbage has become
a delicacy to many old time Florida
natives? Our ancestors supplement-
ed their diet with them through the
great depression because they were
so plentiful here and free. Even be-
fore that the early pioneers of Florida
who came down by wagon trains and
on horse back to this wild untamed
territory known as Florida ate swamp
cabbage often. I have even been told
that the Florida black bears who once
were so plentiful here knew how to
rip the heart out of small cabbage
palms for food.
Now most of the cracker descen-
dants consider swamp cabbage one
of our most treasured dishes. What
pray-tell, is finer than a big cast iron
pot filled with tender gray cabbage
surrounded by bits of smoked ba-
con and a heavy sprinkling of fresh
cracked black pepper.
Dog Days are here. According to
my farmer's almanac Dog Days be-
gan July 3, and they will last until
August 11. Which means that we can
look forward to a lot more rainy af-
teroons. Last week Carrie and I got

CARRYING' ON


caught in some heavy rain down at
Cedar Key. We had big plans to pic-
nic in the Cedar Key Park thinking
the kids, Allie and Gus, would enjoy
a day of playing on Cedar Key's great
playground equipment and digging
in the sand on the beach or chasing
a few fiddler crabs but we got rained
out. Well, I should not say rained out
because there was a break in the rain
so they did get to play on the play-
ground for a few minutes. But, as
with all two-year olds, they began to
play in the rain dripping from the roof
of our picnic shelter and had a really
great time chasing each other through
the puddles. Leave it to those two to
have a really great time no matter the
weather.
Cedar Key offers a great daytime
outing for children. They can swim,
fish, play in the sand, picnic, play on
the playground and now they even
have ice cream at a new shop on the
dock.

1 9-inch pie crust
4 short links of smoked sausage
1 small zucchini squash, sliced
. cup chopped onion
cup chopped green pepper
1 clove of minced garlic
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley
or teaspoon dried parsley ,
4 fresh basil leaves chopped or
teaspoon dried basil
1 cups Cheddar Cheese, grated
4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whipping cream
2 eggs
Prick the bottom of the pie crust
with a fork and bake until golden
brown. Cook sausage until done in
frying pan and then peel the casing
off the links and crumble the meat.
You should have about 1 V cups of
sausage meat. Put two tablespoons
of butter into a pan and cook squash,
onions, peppers, and garlic until just
tender. Add the sausage, parsley, and
basil mix well and put into bottom of
pie crust. Sprinkle cheese over top.
Then mix salt, whipping cream and
two beaten eggs together, whisk well
and pour over the cheese. Bake for
50 minutes in 325 degree oven. Add
a salad and roll and you have a great
supper for a rainy night. Note: I used
a large glass pie plate and it was re-
ally full. It would be a good idea to
buy a pie crust in the roll found in the
'dairy case and put it in the largest pie
plate you have or even a 8x8 glass
dish or pan.

Local farmers honored at CARES dinner


Submitted
"Farming since he was a boy,"
Wesley Sache can talk for hours
about how farming has changed over
the years. He remembers when his
grandfather plowed with a mule, his
family purchased a tractor, and his fa-
ther installed an electric fence to keep
the hogs in. He has also seen changes
to farm practices that have improved
the environment. One of the most no-
table, he recalls, is the advent of the
drip irrigation system his farm now
uses to irrigate watermelons and can-
taloupes.
Sache cultivated his first crop of
melons in the 1970s when he was
studying agriculture in college. Irri-
gating them with stationary guns and
pipe that had to be rotated around the
field was a chore. "We would water
an area for two hours and then have
to move the pipes to another loca-
tion," he remembers of the daunting
task. "It took 24 hours just to water
20 acres." Now through drip irriga-
tion, Sache says he can irrigate 40-
80 acres of melons at one time on his
Levy County farm. The method saves
time, fuel, 'and water, and can also be
used to apply fertilizer.
Watermelons and cantaloupes are
planted in raised beds. Irrigation pip-
ing and tubing are installed. Sheets of
plastic are placed around the crops,
covering beds and pipes. The method
applies water and fertilizer near the
root zone to give a precise applica-
tion. The result is a healthier crop and
environment. "There is less evapo-
ration when irrigating a covered bed,
and precision application allows the
plant to utilize more nutrients and
water, so less is lost to the environ-
ment," said Hugh Thomas, who has
assisted Sache in his efforts to protect
the environment through the Suwan-
nee River Partnership (SRP).
With the help of the SRP, an or-
gaqization that works with farmers
to protect and save water, the Sache
family farm is now managing nutri-
ents and irrigating more efficiently
than ever. The farm's center pivot
irrigation systems have been up-
graded to save water and efficiently
apply fertilizer. Irrigation manage-
ment practices, such as irrigation
scheduling and soil moisture testing,
conserves water. Testing crops for
nutrient concentration helps reduce
the amount of fertilizer needed and
protects water quality. Global posi-
tioning system (GPS) and light bar
equipment prevents overlap of fertil-
izer and chemicals.
Sache's farm has been in his family
since his great-grandfather settled in
Levy County from France. He, a Levy
County Farm Bureau board member,
and his son, Jake, who serves as a
board member for the Levy County
Soil and Water Conservation District,
take great pride in preserving the in-
tegrity of the land his family has long
called home. "The best management
practices on our farm help protect
and save water, fuel, and energy and
have increased production," he said.
"I plan to pass those practices on to
future generations who will farm on
this land.'
Sache's hard work hasn't gone un-
noticed. He and his son were among
19 area farmers recognized on June
30 for the role they play in protecting
the environment at the l1th Annual
County Alliance for Responsible En-
vironmental Stewardship (CARES)
dinner. The CARES farmers were
recognized and congratulated by
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Adam Putnam and Florida Farm Bu-
reau President John Hoblick at the
UF/IFAS Research and Education
Center in Suwannee County.
The Florida Farm Bureau and the
SRP created CARES to highlight ef-
forts by farmers to conserve water

Help Gilchrist County Students



S/DONATE U'


SCHOOL SUPPLIES


Imagine trying to do a school as-
signment without having a pencil-to
write with.
Each school year, area teachers
spend hundreds of dollars of their
own money to ensure their students
have the tools they need to get a good
education.
For the fourth year in a row the
Gilchrist County Journal is taking
a stand to help offset costs to local
teachers and students by providing
school supplies for the 2011-2012
school year.
The newspaper will work with the
school district to gather supplies for
students in need.
A collection box has been set up
inside the Gilchrist County Journal,


and residents are encouraged to stop
by and drop school supplies into the
collection box.
School supplies will be collected
for students entering kindergarten
through high school this fall at Tren-
ton and Bell schools.
Local businesses and community
members are asked to please donate.
Pencils, pens, notebooks, glue, cray-
ons and backpacks are just a sampling
