Gilchrist County Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter is concerned about how
taxpayers' money is being spent
within his department.

first lieutenant was wasting


The sheriff's concern has led to
a re-organization within his office,
which includes the firing of his sec-
ond in command, Major Tony Smith,
who was in charge of law enforce-


ment operations.
"I reviewed what he [Smith]
does, versus what I'm paying him,"
Slaughter said. "I feel like the tax-
payers ought to be getting something


for their money and the time and ef-
fort he put into the job did not justify
his salary."
Therefore, Slaughter made the de-
cision to dissolve Smith's position

Trenton man dies in car accident near Archer


By Carrie A. Mizell
A longtime Trenton firefighter died
Friday night in a car accident, leav-
ing behind a wife and two small chil-
dren.
Alex William Hudson III, 34, died
after being ejected from a 1931 Ford
Coupe on County Road 241, in Ala-
chua County. Hudson was a passen-
ger in the antique car, which was be-
ing driven by a 14-year-old boy at the
time of the accident.
According to Corporal Jessie Stal-
naker, Jr., of the Florida Highway
Patrol, the teenager was attempting
to turn his grandfather's 1931 street-


rod into the grandfather's driveway
near Archer, after taking the car for a
short drive around 10:30 p.m., when
a pickup truck rear-ended the antique
vehicle.
Ernesto I. Simon, 19, of Archer
was reportedly driving a 1998 Dodge
Ram pickup south on County Road
241 when he failed to stop behind the
turning Ford Coupe.
Both the 14-year-old driver and
Hudson were ejected from the car,
-with Hudson sustaining critical inju-
ries. Simon, Hudson and the 14-year-
old were all transported to Shands
Hospital, where Simon was treated


for minor injuries. The 14-year-old
was treated for serious, but not life-
threatening injuries. According to the
Florida Highway Patrol report, Hud-
son was pronounced dead from his
injuries shortly after arriving at the
hospital.
At press time, charges in the acci-
dent were pending further investiga-
tion.
On Monday, friends and fellow
firefighters were reeling from the
news that their friend had died in such
a tragic accident over the weekend.
Everritt Heaton, who was prepar-
ing to preach Hudson's funeral later


this week, recalled Hudson as a pas-
sionate man who was always there.
for his fellow firefighters.
"I always knew him as chief, as
2501," Heaton said. "He just made
everyone feel like they were part of a
team, even if they were just a rookie
with the department."
A Trenton High School graduate,
Hudson began volunteering at the
Trenton Fire Department in 2002 and
left in January 2009, to begin working
for Gilchrist County Fire Rescue.
According to Robin Heath, admin-
istrative assistant at the City of Tren-
ton, Hudson served as fire chief from


2005 to 2009.
Billy Careccia, chief of Gilchrist
County Fire Rescue, recalls work-
ing with Alex Hudson's father at the
fire department in Chiefland and said
on Monday that he has known Alex
since he was a child.
"Alex was a very dedicated young
man," Careccia said. "He believed in
what he was doing and he was always
willing to help others. He is going to
be missed!"
Funeral services for Alex Hudson
are planned for Thursday, Aug. 4 at
11 a.m. in the auditorium at Trenton
High School.


Women and children


suffer minor injuries


in rollover accident


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 17-year-old Old Town driver
was charged with careless driving af-
ter the vehicle she was driving rolled
over in the ditch near the Woodmen
of the World building Monday after-
noon.
Tara K. Browning-Pattengale in-
curred minor injuries in the accident.
Her passenger, Anita A. Barrow,
38, also of Old Town, also suffered
minor injuries in the accident. Two
children, ages 10 and 4, were in the
2006 Dodge van when it rolled over
on State Road 26 just east of County
Road 344A, and they also suffered
minor injuries.
According to Trooper Glen Ga-


nus, of the Florida Highway Patrol,
Browning-Pattengale was driving
west on State Road 26, when for an
unknown reason the vehicle traveled
off the highway and onto the right
shoulder. The driver over corrected,
causing the van to come back onto
the road, but again it left the roadway
on the right side and overturned in
the ditch.
The van came to a final stop in the
ditch on the right shoulder of State
Road 26, facing in a northeasterly di-
rection. All occupants were wearing
seatbelts at the time of the accident.
Barrow and the two children were
transported to Shands Hospital as a
precautionary measure.


Public forum on education

will be Aug. 9 and Aug. 11


The Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict will hold two public forums
beginning next week to educate the
community on what lies ahead for the
school system.
The first forum will be held in the
Trenton Elementary School cafete-
ria on Tuesday, Aug. 9 beginning at
7 p.m. The second will follow at the
Bell High Auditorium on Thursday,
Aug. 11 beginning at 7 p.m.
According to Superintendent Don
Thomas, the public forum will focus
on the changes facing public educa-
tion.
"Education is getting complicated
and changing," Thomas stated. "It is
full of mandates with repercussions
for not meeting them. This is a new

educational world. It is not like it was
five years ago, much less like when
most of us were in school."
Thomas said he feels it's important
to keep the community informed of
the changes facing the school district,
so parents will know how it will af-
fect their children.
"I want you to attend one of the
forums and be part of the changes,"
Thomas said. "I plan to go into great
detail discussing the challenges for
our school district, for our teachers
and for our students."
The District placed a full page ad-
vertisement in this week's issue of the
Gilchrist County Journal to explain in
detail the purpose of the forums. See
page 7 for that information.


Ringthat


By Carrie A. Mizell
The days of teachers ringing a
bell to call children to school may
not be over, as Bell Elementary
School had a 28-inch, cast iron bell
installed in the school's bell tower
this week.
Drummond Community Bank
and Dairy Production Systems do-
nated nearly $3,000 to cover the
cost of the. bell, which was pur-
chased from Brosame 's Bells Inc.
of Brooklyn, Michigan.
"We were happy to support this
worth-while cause,", said Amy
Owens of Drummond Community
Bank.
Bell resident Jim Floyd spear-
headed the bell project, after re-
peatedly driving by the school and
thinking it was a shame that the
school's bell tower out front did not
have a bell inside.
"We have this nice bell tower
here at the elementary school,"
Floyd said on Monday, "And I just
thought it was kind of a shame for
Bell not to have a bell."
A longtime sheriff of Gilchrist
County, Floyd said he remembers
the days when his son was play-

Drummond Community Bank and Dairy Production Systems supported Floyd's efforts to see that a bell
was placed in Bell Elementary School's bell tower.


ing football- at Bell High School;
and Trenton boys, pulling a football
prank, stole the bell. He remembers
a woman calling his office and say-:
ing that she could get the bell back
if school officials promised not to
prosecute; otherwise the bell.would
end up at the bottom of the Suwan-
nee River.
"We decided it was just a little foot-
ball prank," Floyd said with a laugh.


"And Bell got its bell back!"
According to David Spencer, di-
rector of operations for the Gilchrist
County School District, Bell Elemen-
tary School was built in 1996 and
first occupied in August 1997. Terry
Owens was principal at this time and
recalls Bell Elementary having a bell,
but school district officials did not
want it put into the bell tower for fear
someone would climb the rope, fall


and get hurt.
Spencer indicated that the new
bell had been 'through numerous
safety inspections by engineers pri-
or to its placement in the bell tower
this week.
"Someone always used to ring
the bell after ballgames," Floyd
said. "I don't know if they'll send
anyone around here to ring it, but
it'll be here if they want to!"


Langford votes against placement of


Ten Commandments monument


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners discussed on Monday the
proposed Ten Commandment monu-
ment that Old Town resident Joe H.
Anderson, Jr. will be donating to Gil-
christ County.
Gilchrist County Administrator
Ron McQueen told the board that Mr.
Anderson's representative had been
in touch with his office involving the
donation of the monument and where
it will be placed in Gilchrist County.
McQueen explained that Mr. An-
derson had asked if Gilchrist County
would have the monument located on
the courthouse square in the area of
the corer of US 129 and SR 26.
The commission asked Gilchrist


Sexual predator moves

to Fanning Springs

The Levy County Sheriff's Office
would like to notify the community
that a registered sexual predator has
moved to Fanning Springs.
John Henry McGhan, AKA John
Boy McGhan. has moved to 17210
NW US Hwy. 19 in Fanning Springs.
The 42-year-old white male was con-
victed in 1999 for lewd and lascivious
molestation on a child. McGhan was
living in Michigan and has recently
moved to Fanning Springs.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement website,
McGhan is one of nine sexual offend- .
ers living in Fanning Springs. He is
one of two deemed a sexual preda-
tor. "John Boy" McGhan


County attorney John McPherson
what he thought about the placement
of the monument.
McPherson had told the board in
a previous meeting that he felt Gil-
christ County would have less legal
problems with the monument being
challenged if it was placed in the me-
morial park on the south side of the
courthouse across SE First Avenue.
The commissioners then reviewed
a copy of monument placement
guidelines, which included an or-
dinance passed by the Levy County


Commissioners involving placement
of the Ten Commandment monument
in Bronson.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
made a motion to have the Ten Com-
mandments monument placed on the
courthouse square in the area of US
129 and SR 26. Commissioner D.
,Ray Harrison, Jr. agreed with a sec-
ond.
Chairman Durden called for a vote
and the board split on this motion
with the action being approved by a
4-1 decision. Commissioner Tommy


Help Gilchrist County Students


S/ DONATE


SCHOOL SUPPLIES
(At the Gilchrist County Journal)


By Carrie A. Mizell
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 third 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.
According to Carrie Mizell, asso-
ciate editor, the newspaper will work


with the Gilchrist County School
District to gather school supplies for
students in need.
A collection box is now set up in-
side the Gilchrist County Journal of-
fice, located at 207 North Main Street
in Trenton.
School supplies will be collected
for students entering kindergarten
through high school this fall at Tren-
ton and Bell schools.
The collection will end on Wednes-
day, Aug.17. All school supplies col-
lected will be evenly distributed be-
tween TES, BES, BMHS and TMHS.
Don't forget, school will start back
for on Monday, Aug. 22.


Langford voted No on the motion
and explained that he felt approval
would lead to greater problems and
future litigation.
The commission asked the coun-
ty administrator to meet with Mr.
Anderson's representative and make
clear that the donation of this monu-
ment will include the expenses of le-
gal representation if the monument is
challenged in court.
McQueen said that he would give
the commission a report during the
August 15, 2011 meeting.

Ira Bea's Oasis residents speak


out against RVs in the community


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Coqmuis-
sion held a public hearing to con-
sider a Special Use Permit for a
Recreational Vehicle travel trailer
parked in a residential communi-
ty in Ira Bea's Oasis, which is in
northeast Gilchrist County.
The residents and property own-
ers of this neighborhood attended
the August 1 meeting to let the
commission know that Ira Bea's
Oasis is a homes only residential
community that does not want to
be impacted by RVs moving into
the residential area.
The property owners applying
for the permit, Larry Thompson,
Kenneth Moore and Cindy W.
Moore, were applying for a SUP to
park the RV on the property during
the summer.
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion listened as Sandra Joseph, a
representative of the North Central
Florida Regional Planning Coun-
cil, presented SUP 11-03.
She told the commission there
was a small concrete block building
on-the property that has now been
removed from the site. At this time
there are two RVs on the property.'
Ms. Joseph said the property is lot
5 of unit 3A of the development.
There is a 25-foot travel trailer cur-
rently parked on the site. There is a
second travel trailer on the propet-
ty, and the two units were reported
to be connected to an existing sep-
tic tank on site.
Ms. Joseph told the board the


NCFRPC recommends approval of
the permit with several conditions.
These conditions were: the 100 amp
electric service be reduced to 60 amp,
restrict the parking of the unit for a
maximum of 120 straight days or 180
days total, the applicant must get a
county driveway permit for the prop-
erty, and they must pay all county
fees associated with the licensing of
a RV unit. Any violation of these con-
ditions could have the SUP revoked
by Gilchrist County she explained.
Gilchrist County Commission
Chairman Randy Durden asked the
large group of community residents
attending the meeting if they wanted
to address the Commission before the
board decided on the SUP.
Durden explained that Gilchrist
County had received several letters
from residents who own property in
the residential community. He did
not report their identity but explained
they were all in opposition to the SUP
involving the RV use.
Many residents addressed the
board to explain these RVs were be-
ing rented out to weekend vacation-
ers, and this was causing problems in
the residential community.
Marie Hinkle, a resident of the
community, reported the Ira Bea's
community is a homes only develop-
ment that has deed restrictions not
allowing mobile homes or RVs on
designated lots. She told the board
there are signs up in the community
identifying these restrictions.
Gilchrist County attorney John
McPherson told the board that this


was a Quasi-Judicial hearing, and
the decision on this application
must be determined from informa-
tion presented in this hearing.
The commission identified the
criteria that would need to be met
by the SUP application.
Lewis Hinkle, a resident of the
community, told the board that this
SUP is a problem in the community
and does not meet the criteria for
approval.
The commission discussed the
RV currently located on the prop-
.erty. Several of the board members
explained they did not feel comfort-
able considering a SUP permit for
one RV when there is a second unit
on the property.
Commissioner Tommy Langford
made a motion to deny SUP 11-03
because the application does not
meet the criteria identified in the
Gilchrist County Land Develop-
ment Regulations.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. gave a second to the motion for
discussion.
The board voted 4-1 to deny the
motion, which failed.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made a motion to continue with
this SUP 11-03 until the applicant
comes into compliance.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
gave a second to the motion, and
the board approved this action by
a 4-1 vote. Commissioner Tommy
Langford voted no on this motion.
The board asked staff to have the
RVs moved from the property.


Hart Springs manager presents


ADA improvements to county


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Board of
Commissioners listened as Mitchell
Gentry, manager of Hart Springs Park,
presented estimates that would make


Hart Springs Park accessible to visi-
tors with disabilities. He explained at
the present time the park is not fully
accessible to wheelchairs and oth-
ers types of devices that are used by


Sheriff Slaughter
Continued from page 1


best we can with what we've got,"
Slaughter said. "We can't waste
money."
The sheriff cited a recent rise in air
conditioning thefts throughout the
county as a major concern within his
department.
"I hope with the money we are sav-
ing on that one administrative salary,
we can put two or more patrol cars on
the streets," Slaughter said. "I think
taxpayers' money would be better
spent that way."
Smith's firing came in the wake of
Slaughter's second lieutenant Ma-
jor Leonard Knuckles retirement.
Knuckles had worked at the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office since July
2009.
Knuckles, who brought 30 years of


experience working with the Depart-
ment of Corrections to the job, super-
vised the operation of the jail and the
civil division.
"I really think he [Knuckles] will
come back to work for me," Slaugh-
ter said on Friday. "It's been a stress-
ful time, what with the death at the
jail, and I think he [Knuckles] just
needed to back up and take a break."
For now, longtime employee Lt.
Sheryl Brown will oversee operation
of the jail.
"I'm just going to let her run her
show," Slaughter said.
As to whether or not the sheriff
plans to seek re-election in 2012,
Slaughter would only say, "I have
not decided that I'm not going to run
again."

people with disabilities. These pro-
posals included handicapped parking
spaces, new sidewalks connecting the
springs to bathrooms to spring store,
and two new pavilions. He also asked
if the Commission would consider
making the RV Park at Hart Springs
more ADA accessible. The manager
of Hart Springs addressed the com-
mission during their Monday, July 18
afternoon meeting.
Gentry explained there are picnic
and swimming areas at Hart Springs
Park that are not accessible to handi-
capped people. It is difficult for peo-
ple in wheelchairs to get to all of the
picnic shelters and the swimming ar-
eas, he explained. He proposed four
improvements to the facility to make
the park more handicap accessible. 1.
Two handicapped parking spaces near
sidewalks to the springs area with an
estimated cost of $350.00. 2. New
sidewalk from sidewalk to springs
area to store to bathroom building
with an estimated cost of $2,500.00.
3. Two new handicap-designed pa-
vilions with sidewalk connections to
sidewalk to springs area at an esti-
mate of $16,750.00. 4. Sidewalk and
handicap parking space in front of
RV restrooms with an estimated cost
of $5,200.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr.
asked the Park Manager if he had any
type of plans or sketches to visualize
the work he presented to the board.
Gentry explained he just put these
estimates together based on what he
felt the expenses were. Commission-
er Harrison asked if any of this work
had been advertised for bids. None of
the proposals have been advertised.
Commissioner Harrison made a mo-
tion to have the Park Manager prepare
sketches of the'proposed workand
bring them back to the Commission
in a future meeting. Commissioner
Sharon Langford agreed and gave a
second to the action. The board ap-
proved the motion unanimously.

Florida's First Lady stops in


Fanning Springs to promote


summer literacy


By Carrie A. Mizell
A summer afternoon rain storm
could not dampen Florida First Lady
Ann Scott's message to local chil-
dren: Read a book!
Scott visited Fanning Springs State
Park on Tuesday during her Summer
Literacy Adventure.
With the crystal clear springs in the
background, Scott stood before Ala-
chua County children from 02B Kids
and talked to them about the trips one
can take while reading a book.
"The adventures this summer have
been plentiful, and reading and litera-
cy have helped our students use their
imagination to journey to so many
places," Scott said. "Fanning Springs
State Park is a great area to explore
and learn about our state's precious
resources, and I'm thrilled to share in
the Summer Literacy Adventure with
students in the region."
Scott told barefoot children, clad in
bathing suits and eating snacks, that
she had challenged herself to read
five books this summer; and she has
actually read those five and more.
Florida's First Lady was joined by
representatives of the Florida De-
partment of Education, the Florida
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection and the Florida Department
of State, in advancing the literacy
skills of students in the area during
the summer break.
"We're so glad to have been a part
of this educational adventure with
the First Landy encouraging children
to read outdoors," said Florida State
Parks Director Donald Forgione.
"Fanning Springs provides a great
location for reading on hot days. Just
set your book down and jump in the
cool spring waters."
Students can visit the Just Read,
Florida! website at www.justreadflor-
ida.com to participate in the Summer
Literacy Adventure. A select school
with the most participating students
taking the pledge in the Adventure
will be recognized during the 2011-
,12 school year, with all of its students
winning a one-day pass to any Flori-
da state park.
Any student who takes the pledge
may also utilize a free online tool
to search for books based on read-
ing ability and interests. The DOE,
tlrougl MetaMetics, offers a umque
resource called "Find a Book, Flor-
ida" at http://florida.lexile.com that
uses Lexile measures, a widely ad-
opted reading metric that can guide a
reader to an appropriate level book.


Children from 02B Kids in Alachua listened as local library and park
officials spoke prior to Ann Scott stepping up to the microphone.

John's Comments
By John M. Ayers


This past weekend I had the oppor-
tunity to be a part of three generations
fishing on our airboat at Cedar Key. J,
Lyndsay, and Gus said they wanted to
go for a boat ride before dark and I
was invited. This was my first airboat
ride with Gus as he helped his mom
captain the boat around the oyster
bars out from No. Four Channel at
Cedar Key.
J had told me that there were
plenty of fish at the island; we would
just have to catch the tide right. He
has had good success with an ohtgo-
ing tide and we seemed to hit it just
right.
Some of my earliest mullet fishing
at Cedar Key. was years ago when'I
would become the "let it go man" for
Mr. Lloyd Beauchamp, Sr. as he liked
to fish and enjoyed taking people
fishing on his Trembleybirddog boat.
In those days we always caught fish
because he would.circle them with
the net and then we would slipout the
catch.
Saturday afternoon it was J and I
throwing our cast nets as Gus sat up
on the seat with his life preserver
and headphones on under his moth-
er's arm. When his dad would catch
a fish, Gus would get so excited he
would tell us to catch more and big-
ger fish.
As the sun began to set in the
west, the beautiful colors in the sky
along with the wildlife and birds fly-


ing along the water really turned this
early evening into a picturesque plea-
sure. It was a special event, and yes I
enjoyed it very much. It seemed the
later we fished the better the fishing
got.' As dark came, we decided to
make a run back to the boat ramp.
J knew the channels and the bridg-
es, but he didn't realize just how low
the tide was. By 9:00 o'clock, the
tide was still going out. The mud flats
were beginning to glisten as J's spot-
light would shine across the water.
At one point, he turned into a cove
thinking it would lead us back to the
boat ramp. When we ran out of water
up onto the slick, black mud, that was
when things got exciting. Sometimes
J reminds me of his son Gus, the way
he likes to play. This particular time
he let the boat slide across the mud
and turn around until it turned in the
direction of the channel. Then J made
it go loud, as Gus would say. With a
pull of the handle J slid us back into
the shallow,.muddy channel and onto
the boat ramp.
Having an airboat experience with-
out water is something that is just
indescribable. An airboat is like any
other boat when it comes to stopping,
but you have to remember; it doesn't
have a reverse.
We had a great time, caught a few
fish, and I am looking for an opportu-
nity to enjoy the outdoors again with
the next generation of cast netters.


Mosquito precautions are urged

for local residents


Submitted
SThe Florida Department of Health
(DOH) emphasizes the importance
of protecting against mosquito-borne
diseases during the summer rainy
season, which includes peak mos-
quito activity months. DOH works
with partner agencies, including the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion, mosquito control agencies, and
state universities year-round to moni-
tor for the presence of illnesses car-
ried by mosquitoes including West
Nile virus infections, Eastern Equine
Encephalitis, St. Louis encephalitis,
malaria and dengue.
DOH advises the public to remain
diligent in protecting themselves
from mosquito bites by following the
"5 D's," which are:
Dusk and Dawn-Avoid being out-
dqors when mosquitoes are biting.
Dress -Wear clothing that covers
most of your skin.
DEET-Use repellents containing
DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide,
or N,N-diethyl-3-methylbenzamide).
Picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus,


IR3535 and permethrin are other re-
pellent options.
Drainage-Check around your
home to rid the area of standing wa-
ter, which is where mosquitoes can
lay their eggs.
Using repellent can help protect
against being bitten by a mosquito.
Follow these tips for correct repellent
use:
Read label directions carefully for
the approved usage before applying
a repellent to skin. Some repellents
are not suitable for children. Accord-
ing to the CDC, mosquito repellents
containing oil of lemon eucalyptus
should not be used on children under
the age of 3 years. DEET is not rec-
ommended on children younger than
2 months old.
Products with concentrations of
up to 30 percent DEET are generally
recommended. Mosquito repellents
containing picaridin, oil of lemon
eucalyptus, or IR3535 can also be
applied directly on skin. Permethrin
can be used on clothing..
Apply insect repellent to exposed
skin, or onto clothing, but not under
,clothing.

Septic Tank Law passed
in 2010
Dear Editor,
In 2010 the State Legislature passed
HB 13; a septic tank law that makes
it mandatory to have septic tanks in-
spected every 5 years. This is like
another mandatory TAX on farmers
and county people.
This inspection must be paid for
by the owner and is at the owner's
expense. Any necessary repairs, in-
cluding possible replacement expens-
es will be the owner's responsibility.
HB 13 was not approved or passed on
by the Senate, in 2010, causing delay
in implementation for another year.
I understand that some House
members are trying to get this law
repealed.
Contact your State Representatives
and ask them to support the repeal of
HR 13.
I have not heard of the FL Farm
Bureau or AARP doing anything to
repeal HR 13. This bill will be an
additional cost to farmers and older
citizens.
Sincerely,
Charles J. Anderson


"Knock Cancer Out of
the Park"
Coibin Wiggins Benefit
Thanks to the community
Dear Editor,
As the Trenton High baseball coach
and a friend of the Wiggins/Wilks
family, I want to take this opportuni-
ty to thank all those that helped make
our "Knock Cancer Out of the Park"
a success for Corbin Wiggins. I am
especially thankful to the Trenton
Rotary Club for picking this event as
a service project and providing both
labor and funds to help make it hap-
pen. I was both humbled and amazed
at the way our community and sur-
rounding communities chipped in to
help the cause. Our extended base-
ball family showed up in earnest for
Corbin, and all that were in atten-
dance had a great time.
I would like to individually thank
each fan, friend, family, business,
coach or baseball player that stepped
SInfants should be kept indoors or
mosquito netting should be used over
carriers when mosquitoes are pres-
ent.
DOH also offers these tips for
eliminating mosquito breeding sites
around your home:
Clean out eaves, troughs and gut-
ters..
Remove old tires or drill holes
in those used in playgrounds so water
can drain.
Turn over or remove empty pots.
Pick up all beverage containers
and cups after use.
Check tarps on boats or other
equipment that may collect water.
Pump out.bilges on boats.
Replace water in birdbaths and
pet or other animal feeding dishes at
least once a week.
Change water in plant trays, in-
cluding hanging plants, at least once
a week.
Remove vegetation or obstruc-
tions in drainage ditches that prevent
the flow of water.
Most people who become sick
from mosquitoes have mild symp-
toms like headache, fever, dizziness
and fatigue, but more severe symp-
toms are possible. DOH urges any-
one with severe symptoms to consult
their primary care physician or seek
immediate medical care. Physicians
should contact their county health de-
partment if they'suspect an individual
may have a mosquito-borne illness.

The Arctic Cat And The Chevy
(Kent Heaton)


The small incline on a graded road would normally not
be a problem for the Chevy hauling a load of canoes.
However, after a good rain the road became a slick mass
of clay unyielding in allowing anything to negotiate up
the hill. After many attempts to dislodge the truck and
trailer from the mud, help was summoned. The efforts to
find a four-wheel truck failed and the suggestion was
given to take the 'Arctic Cat.' Bemused that such a small
machine could possibly pull the hapless vehicle from the
mud, it was taken down the road. In short order the Arctic
Cat pulled the two canoe trailers plus a long-bed trailer
with hay up the hill to dry ground.
Comparing the Arctic Cat with the Chevy truck or the
Ram truck (or any other truck available at the time)
would seem silly but the problem with the trucks is they
did not have the traction necessary to get through the
deep mud. The smaller machine in low gear and four
wheel drive easily pulled the heavy loads through. Life is
much like that in many ways.
We want to drive through life without the benefit of
proper traction and gear ratio. The rat race is how we run,
and staying ahead of the rats is the goal in life. But then
the storms appear and the way becomes difficult and
impossible to navigate. We sink down in the mire of
problems that choke us and hurt us. The harder we try the
more we become victims of deeper problems. Death
invades our lives and we do not know how to get out of
its grasp. Our health is destroyed and we become angry
and despondent with no answers. The economy brings
untold hardship on our families and we are unable to deal
with the realities of less. As spiritual people our faith may
even waver. We become stuck in the mud of life.


What made the difference in the Arctic Cat is the low
gear and the four wheels turning to give proper traction.
In our lives we need the same thing: "As you therefore
have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him,
rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith,
as you have been taught, abounding in it with
thanksgiving" (Colossians 2:6-7). Being a disciple of
Christ does not mean there will not be times of hardship
and difficulty. The difference for those who walk in
Christ Jesus is that they are "rooted and built up in Him
and established in the faith" that is the four-wheel
drive of the spiritual life.
To be rooted in Christ is to have a firm grasp on life
and know how to navigate the muddy roads that will
come upon us. This imagery is used repeatedly in
scripture (Ephesians 3:17-18; Colossians 1:23; Jeremiah
17:7-8). The size of the vehicle did not make the
difference; what made the difference was the machine
that had traction. As a tree drives its roots deep in the
ground our faith must be buried deeply in the love and
knowledge of God. The great examples of faith found in
Hebrews 11 all express the deep faith in God and trust in
His word.
The Arctic Cat did not pull the trailers out with.great
ease. There was tension, groaning and a challenge but the
trailers were pulled to safe ground because of persistence.
Our faith will be challenged in those muddy days of life
but we will be able to see it through with faith, courage,
mercy, grace and an abundant spirit of perseverance to
overcome. Jesus told the churches in Asia "to him that
overcomes" (Revelation 2 & 3) a reward will be given.
We must overcome.

- The Herringtons' fishing trip


The Philman Family Band performs at the Senior Center while seniors
enjoy banana splits.

Senior Center news


Submitted by Norm Conti
Over 120 senior citizens packed
the Trenton Senior Center on Friday,
July 29, to enjoy music by the Phil-
man Family Band.
Sheriff Daniel and Cindy Slaugh-
ter supplied all the ingredients for
the most wonderful banana splits that
you could'ever hope to eat. I was
happy to see that many came back for
seconds, and if anyone left without a
tummy full, it was their own fault.
The iarty that lasted about two hours
was thoroughly enjoyed by all of the-
attendees.
Government officials who attended
were Chairman of the County Com-
mission Randy Durden with his wife,
Diane, and Commissioner Kenrick
Thomas and his wife, Carolyn. Spe-
cial guests included Sally Browning,
Senior Center Director and Linda
Moore from Experience Works. Nan-
cy Padgett, Senior Director of Mt.
Nebo Baptist Church, brought a bus
load of 18 seniors from the northern
part of our county. A large represen-
tation from AARP also attended and
many who attend the various classes
at the Senior Center were also.pres-
ent.
Gilchrist County is very fortunate
in the fact that the Philman Family
Band is always available to play mu-
sic and make merry at no cost for our
senior functions.
A special "Thank You" to all of
the volunteers who were more than
willing to help prepare the ice cream
dishes.
If you are not attending one of our
many classes, let hme use this time'
to remind you that there is an Exer-


cise Class on Monday and Wednes-
day. mornings and also on Tuesday
and Thursday nights; Monday after-
noon there is a crocheting class and
Wednesday afternoon the ladies get
together for knitting. Tuesday and
Thursday mornings are set aside for
cards and games. If you have never
played "Hand and Foot," they are
always ready to teach you this card
game. The first Friday of the month
is our bus trip to Wal-Mart--it's not
just a ride but a social event. Most
of the people who ride the bus once,
keep coming back. On all other
Friday mornings from 10 12, we
play Bingo. We have had a speaker
system donated by our local AARP
Chapter and it really makes a differ-
ence when you can hear every num-
ber being called. I am very proud of
the fact that at no time is anybody
charged for any of our classes or
,games. Monnye Brown comes'by on
Wednesday at noon to play the piano
for your singing or listening pleasure.
Monnye knows all the old songs that
we grew up with.
The Trenton Senior Center offers
a wide. variety of meals on a daily
basis. If you are going to eat lunch
with us at noon, please call 463-1895
by 11 o'clock to let them know. If
you are not using the Senior Center
on a weeklybasis, you are missing
out. Even if you just want to watch
a movie on our new 42" wide screen
TV or use our Internet ready com-
puter that also has a printer, come on
out and take full advantage of the
things that the county has made just
for seniors.

J-eart Matters

By Angie Land


Wilderness Series 3
What is your "if only" sentence at
this point in your life? Think about
it for a minute: have you recently
thought or said, "If only I could_
?" We could fill in the blank
with our own situation and/or one of
the following: "If only I could...fin-
ish school...get a job/different job...
recover from an injury/illness...buy
a house...get out of debt...find a hus-
band/wife...have children...get my
children raised." Then life would be
just how I wanted and I could rest...
right?
The early days of our journey in
the wilderness is the perfect time
to think about the expectations we
have of this experience as well as
what awaits us in the land of prom-
ise. Exodus 2:23 gives a glimpse of
the suffering of the children of Israel
in Egypt: "The Israelites groaned in
their slavery and cried out, and their
cry for help because of their slavery
went up to God." The English Stan-
dard Version says it this way: "Their
cry for rescue from slavery came up
to God." Do you hear the "if only"
loud and clear? Rescue us from this
situation!! According to the next
two verses, "God heard their groan-
ing and he remembered his covenant
with Abraham, with Isaac and with
Jacob. So God looked on the Israel-
ites and was concerned about them."
The next chapter begins to unfold
God's rescue mission through the life
of Moses.
Let's stop here for a quick evalu-
ation: Were the Israelites wrong to
ask for deliverance? Should they just
have accepted their lot and strived
to be good slaves? Absolutely not!
They were chosen by God to be His
people...not Pharaoh's. However, be
careful to notice that His rescue was
prompted by the memory of His cov-
enant, not their struggle, and the plan
would develop according to His pur-
poses, not their comfort. Herein lies
the rub.
After a host of plagues and miracles,
Exodus 14 gives a detailed account
of the Israelites' rescue. Pharaoh's
change of heart results in a crunch
between the most powerful army on


earth and the Red Sea...and the "if
only" quickly changes: "As Pharaoh
approached, the Israelites looked up
and there were the Egyptians march-
ing after them. They were terrified
and cried out to the Lord. They said
to Moses, "...Didn't we say to you in
Egypt, 'Leave us alone; let us serve
the Egyptians'? It would have been
better for us to serve the Egyptians
than to die in the desert!" (Exodus
14:10-12) Say what??
Now the problem with focusing
solely on our "if only's" becomes
clear. Do we want the "if only" to
happen only if it is easier and more
comfortable than where we are now?
Often we can't see the work that even
good things bring into 6ur lives un-
til they happen. A new house...has
payments and upkeep. Getting.mar-
ried...can mean learning to live with
someone who has some really weird
habits. Having children...means
your life totally turns upside down.
Even recovering from an illness or
injury can involve therapy or treat-
ments that are tough! Nothing wrong
with wanting any of these, but they
will not bring rest into our lives...
only seeking God brings rest.
Maybe we need to change our "if
only" to "only if." "Only if" God is
in (fill in the blank), do we want it.
And if He is in it...let's trust Him and
take everything He gives...because
every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

County Assistance
Service Team meeting
Submitted by Geneva Cornwell
Those that attended the recent "Ex-
ploratory" meeting facilitated by the
Character Council sensed the excite-
ment about the possibility of having a
County Assistance Service Team. .
From the onset, it was declared that
it should have been called a "Possi-
bilities" meeting, for after listening
to six speakers, there was much dis-
cussion about the possibilities which
exist in helping needy widows and
disabled veterans in our county.
A few examples are the establish-
ment of county district "teams," use
of discernment in scheduling jobs, li-
abilities, insurance, a phone commit-
tee, 501 (c) 3 organizational status,
fundraising, teen/ adult volunteers, a
, contact list of professionals, etc.
There is another meeting planned
for October; and the public will once
again be irivited to attend.
In the meantime, it appears that
the possibilities are endless to as-
sist the needy in our caring county,
so be thinking about what you can
do t6 give a little of yourself,-and re-
member the old saying, "many hands
make light work."
For more information, you may
contact Geneva Cornwell at 463-
8663.

Message from Superintendent Don Thomas: You are invited to attend a public forum near you and learn what lies ahead for the Gilchrist
County School District. We are heading into unprecedented times with more mandates, less funding and less staff support. Our
revenue sources are going down and a large part of the school district budget is tied to personnel. This decline in revenue is not
something that is over. We anticipate further cuts in revenue which in turn will cause the school district to consider additional cuts in
positions and/or programs. We have difficult decisions ahead of us. However, it is critical to make the right choices to keep the
instructional and curriculum mandates in motion. I want the community to be part of the decision making. However, you have to know
the facts to understand why difficult decisions are being made. It is important that you attend one of the forums and hear firsthand the
issues and obstacles facing the Gilchrist County School District. I have provided budget related information below which will be
discussed in greater detail at the public forums. We are in a box with very few options. We need you at our meeting to better
understand our situation and give us your input on our future decisions. I look forward to meeting with you soon.
Sincerely, Don Thomas, Superintendent

Submitted
Effective August 15, 2011, the
Gainesville Social Security office
will be open to the public Monday
through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to
3:30 p.m., a reduction of 30 minutes
each weekday.
While agency employees will con-
tinue to work their regular hours, this
shorter public window will allow
them to complete face-to-face ser-
vice with the visiting public without
incurring the cost of overtime. Con-
gress provided Social Security with
nearly $1 billion less than the Presi-
dent requested for the budget this fis-
cal year, which makes it impossible
for the agency to provide the amount
of overtime needed to handle service
to the public as we have in the past.
Most Social Security services do
not require a,visit to an office. For
example, anyone wishing to apply
for benefits, sign up for direct de-
posit, replace a Medicare card, obtain
a proof of income letter or inform us
of a change of address or telephone
number may do so at www.socialse-

Shelly Smith stands by the beautiful mural she and her son Shane painted at the Tri County Nursing
Home.

Tri County Nursing Home receives a


gift of love
Submitted
Shelly Smith, a local resident of
Bell Florida, and her son, Shane, re-
cently painted a beautiful mural for
Tri County Nursing Home's resident
dementia unit.
Ms. Smith's inspiration for her
work was based on her recently de-
ceased mother, Alma Taylor, who
was an Alzheimer's patient for more
than nine years at Tri County Nurs-
ing Home. Ms. Taylor was born and
raised in Gilchrist County and her fa-
ther was the sheriff of Welford, Flori-
da, during her childhood years.
Shelly's beautiful window work of
art is very impressive. Picture paint-
ing as a window looking outside into
a warm spring day. Looking out that
window is a glance into a resident's
past. As a child growing up in rural
areas of the south or the north, you
would find a gentle, kinder, time of
life that a resident may have spent
long ago, a time in past years gone

by. Memories often surface to those
dear sweet faces as they gaze out of
that window of life long ago but not
forgotten.
In the far distance of Shelly's
painting, you will find a cabin or
two on the hillside with green grass
all around. Children are laughing as
they play games in the front yard of
a house looking back at you from un-
der beautiful shade trees of sycamore
and birch. Look closely.at the chick-
ens scratching the grass, and you may
find that you can hear their clucking
for some interesting bugs that only
they can see. Look closely again
and you can see a robin's nest with
blue eggs from a tree just outside this


magnificent picture perfect window
as you watch cardinals and a blue jay
fleeing from one tree to another.
Dear sweet resident, what do you
see? Do you remember the smell of
grass after a warm spring rain? Do
you hear your mother calling you
in from play? Do you beg for a few
more moments just to play on a warm
summer day? I often wonder as I
watch the simple pleasure of life run
across their faces as they gaze oqt of
this picture window.
Tri County Nursing Home wishes
to thank Shelly and Shane Smith for
their gift of love. Thank you from the
bottom of our hearts.

Over $8,000 raised


for Corbin W.iggins. .
,: . t ,,. _


By Carrie A. Mizell
The citizens of Gilchrist County
got behind one of their own by sup-
porting two fundraisers held over the
weekend that brought in over $8,000
for Corbin Wiggins.
The Trenton Rotary Club spon-
sored baseball skills competition
held on Friday night at Trenton High
School raised over $6,400. The fol-
lowing day, a walk, run or ride event
held on the Greenway Trail drew over
200 people and raised $1,671.32.
According to Todd Bryant, around
300 people were drawn tb the base-
ball skills competition. Many parents,
grandparents and friends traveled
from throughout the area to cheer on
the 51 contestants who participated.
The players represented 12 teams,
including Trenton, Bell, Bronson,
Chiefland, Dixie County, Melody
Christian, Branford, PK Yonge, Haw-
thorne, St. Francis Catholic, Newber-
ry and Oak Hall.
Contests held throughout the eve-
ning included a speed contest, where
players were timed as they ran from
second base to home plate. Trenton
player Cedric Stokes won the speed
contest and Cole Parks of Chiefland


was named runner-up. Garrett Webb
of St. Francis Catholic won the out-
field throwing contest, and Trenton's
own Clif Bryant was named champi-
on of the home run derby after hitting
eight out of the park. A.J. Graham of
Bronson came in second in the home
run derby with three home runs.
While rain closed out Friday night's
baseball skills competition, Saturday
morning brought sunny skies and hot
temperatures as exercise enthusiasts
gathered at the Trenton Depot to par-
ticipate in a walk, run or ride orga-
nized by Ryan Hausner. Snow cones,
hamburgers, hot dogs, popcorn and
cold drinks greeted exhausted par-
ticipants upon their return.
Corbin and his mother, Angie Wig-
gins, were on hand at both events to
thank participants for their support.
The Trenton High School junior was
diagnosed with four different types
of cancer in early July. While doc-
tors have said that he will not need
chemotherapy, Corbin is facing sur-
gery on August 9, which will include
a five-day stay in the hospital. The
family asks that the community lift
Corbin up in prayer as he prepares
for surgery.

Ribbon cutting held at city's new well


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The City of Trenton's regular
monthly meeting began with a rib-
bon cutting at the new city well,
which is located at the South East
Park, also known as the City Park.
Funding for the well project
came from a Community Develop-
ment Block Grant. The cost of the
entire project was $650,000 which
included a backup generator. This
generator coupled with, a new
backup generator at the city water
tower will provide water to part of
the City of Trenton in the event of
a power outage.


The new well will be known as the
primary well or well number 3..It has
the ability to pump 500 gallons per
minute.
Trenton has two older wells, bne
known as well number 1, which start-
ed pumping water to the citizens of
Trenton in 1955 and pumps 500 gal-
lons per minute. Well number 2 has
been used as a backup well since it
went on line in 1958 and pumps 250
gallons per minute. Currently, well
number 2 will pump from 12 a.m. un-
til 3 a.m. when the water usage in the
city is at its lowest. Both of the older
wells are located behind City Hall.


In a vote during the July 26 meet-
ing of the Trenton City Commission,
commissioners voted unanimously
to set the tentative mileage rate for
2012 ad valorem taxes at 3 mills.
The tentative millage rate could pos-
sibly come down as the budgeting
process is worked through during the
next several months but it cannot be
raised.
City Manager Taylor Brown said
that he and his staff feel comfortable
working within the same rate as last
year and did not see a reason for an
increase.
The commissioners set a tentative


budget meeting for September 15.
at 5:30 p.m., and the final budget
meeting is set for September 27 at
5:30 p.m.
During the next two meetings
scheduled for August the com-
missioners will be holding budget
workshops as well as their regular
meeting agenda.
City Commissioners also voted
to waive the special use permit and
the rental fee for the Train Depot in
Trenton for Saturday, July 30, for
a fundraiser for Corbin Wiggins, a
Trenton teenager who has been di-
agnosed with cancer.
