Commission gives administrator time to improve


County attorney John McPherson gets satisfactory job evaluation from commissioners .


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission-
ers each gave verbal reasoning for
their review of Gilchrist County Ad-
ministrator Ron McQueen and Coun-
ty Attorney John McPherson during
the Monday, Aug. 15 meeting.
The county attorney received sat-
isfactory marks from most of the five
commissioners, but was asked to im-
prove on his work and devotion to
Gilchrist County.
McQueen was given unsatisfac-
tory marks by a majority of the board


and rated below average in several
of the categories the commission-
ers reviewed pertaining to his job
performance over the last two years.
Ultimately, the commissioners gave
McQueen six months to improve his
performance as county administrator.
McQueen's position will be reviewed
again in 2012.
During their Aug. 1, 2011 meet-
ing, the county commissioners gave
the county administrator and county
attorney guidelines to submit self-
evaluations of their job performance,


which were turned into the commis-
sioners last week.
In their review of attorney John
McPherson, the commissioners said
they were satisfied with his work,
but asked that he get things done in
a more timely manner. Several com-
missioners also.asked the attorney to
be more devoted to Gilchrist County
in his position representing the Gil-
christ County Commission.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. explained to McPherson that he
didn't agree with everything the at-


torney recommended to the commis-
sion, but felt he did a satisfactory
job.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
said he thinks McPherson does an
excellent job, but he went on to say
that he isn't sure McPherson is quali-
fied to represent Gilchrist County in a
big legal battle.
Commission Chairman Randy
Durden reported that McPherson has
done an excellent job for Gilchrist
County, but felt he needed to perform
some of his responsibilities in a more


timely manner.
"I know John McPherson has saved
Gilchrist County quite a bit of money
when he worked handling zoning is-
sues and submitting EAR informa-
tion to Tallahassee," Durden said.
While discussing Ron McQueen's
job performance, Commissioner Sha-
ron Langford said she feels his work
has been unsatisfactory over the last
year. Langford pointed out his com-
munication with Gilchrist County de-
partment supervisors has been below

School superintendent


tells community, 'Hard


choices will be made'


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County School District
officials are encouraging all parents
and guardians of the 2,600 students
attending Trenton and Bell schools to
contact state and federal lawmakers
to say enough is enough. As Superin-
tendent Don Thomas pointed out, the
government cannot provide school
districts with revenue it does not
have, but elected officials can lessen
requirements strangling public school
systems throughout the state.
In two separate public forums held
last week in Bell and Trenton, the
superintendent expressed to the com-
munity the many challenges facing
the school system. Thomas also pro-
vided citizens with the chance to of-
fer suggestions to help guide school
officials as they brace for an uncer-
tain future.
"It is becoming increasingly dif-
ficult to meet the standards set forth
by the state and federal government,"
Thomas explained. "In the old days
you just sent your kids to school, the
teacher taught them, they learned
what they needed to know, and gradu-
ated from high school...it's a lot more
complicated than that now."
Thomas presented a number of
statistics during the public forum,
including reports that show the
school district's operating funds be-
ing reduced significantly over the last
four years. In anticipation of the loss
of federal stimulus funds this year,
school officials worked to build up
the reserve during the 2010-11 school
year to just over $2.6 million. But
even after cutting 15 positions since
last school year and cutting other
parts of the budget, the superinten-
dent said the reserve will continue to
dwindle as it covers operating ex-
penses. During the 2011-12 school
year, officials project the reserve to
fall to $854,415.
"As we anticipate another reduc-
tion in revenue next year, we ,know
we cannot continue to use the reserve
to balance the budget," Thomas said.
"Cuts are going to have to be made
and they aren't going to be pretty.
One month's payroll is equal to $1.5
million."
Also disturbing were statistics
showing that 63.29 percent of stu-
dents in Gilchrist County were on
the free and reduced meal plan dur-
ing the 2010-11 school year, which
coincides with an increase in the un-
employment rate countywide to just
over 9 percent.

School district officials are pro-
jecting an increase in the number of
students attending Trenton and Bell
school during the 2011-12 school
year, despite statistics showing that
the number of students attending lo-
cal schools has dropped each year
since the financial crisis began in
2006-07.
As Thomas pointed out, the good
news is that the school district has the
longest record, at 10 years, of A and
B schools in the state, having earned
an A school district grade each year
since 2003-04.
"I think the most important thing
we can be proud of in Gilchrist Coun-
ty is our graduation rate," Thomas
said. "Gilchrist County tied for #1
with Broward County with a gradua-
tion rate of 94.7 percent in 2009."
While other school.districts in the
area had graduation rates as low as
62.7 percent in 2010, Gilchrist Coun-
ty boasted a 92.1 percent graduation
rate.
"At their [other local school dis-
tricts'] graduation rate over the last
few years, well over 200 of our kids
would not have graduated from high
school," Thomas said.
Despite continued success, the Gil-
christ County School District is now
looking at a number of instructional
challenges both at the state and feder-
al levels. State accountability focuses
on the A++ Plan, which was initiated
by former Governor Jeb Bush, and
school grades, while federal account-
ability mandates-No Child Left Be-
hind and Adequate Yearly Progress
standards.
As Thomas pointed out, students
are broken down into the follow-
ing subgroups: White, Black, Asian,
Hispanic, American Indian, Students
with Disabilities, Economically Dis-
advantaged and English Language
Learners. There must be at least 30
students in a category to be mea-
sured as a subgroup. Once measured,
Thomas said it doesn't matter if 95
percent of a school's students are do-
ing well, if just one subgroup does
not make Adequate Yearly Progress
then a school is penalized.
"The Adequate Yearly Progress
target is steadily moving," Thomas
explained. "By 2013-14, 100 per-
cent of students will have to make
Adequate Yearly Progress. It's more
likely that republicans and democrats
will be able to work together than us
being able to meet that 100 percent
requirement."
District officials are also wrestling
with a Class Size Amendment that
they cannot afford to fund. For ex-
ample, the class size maximum for
students in fifth grade is 22 students.
If teachers A, B and C each have a
class size of 22 students, but teacher
D has 23 students then district offi-
cials have to decide if it's more fea-
sible to hire a new fifth grade teacher,
at a cost $55,000 to accommodate
the one extra child and thereby meet
the class size requirement, or pay a
penalty of $4,352.84 for each student
over class size.
The school district is also facing a
decrease in career and technical edu-
cation funding, or vocational edu-
cation funding, which is rough in a
small county where according to sta-
tistics, just 8.1 percent of the popula-
tion has a bachelor's degree.
Officials are not the only ones fac-
ing challenges as the school year be-

Thieves vandalize irrigation pivots


By Carrie A. Mizell
Bell farmer Kelly Philman is try-
ing to get ready to harvest peanuts.
Instead, the operator of 83 Farms
LLC is having to worry about
thieves who have been breaking
into his fields and stealing copper
wiring off his irrigation pivots.
"I just want to make all the oth-
er farmers and people in this area
aware of what's going on," Phil-
man said on Tuesday.
Philman and his employees
called the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office to report the theft of
copper wiring on irrigation pivots
north of Bell last week.
According to Heath Carlisle, an
83 Farms LLC employee, a pivot
on County Road 340 near the in-
tersection of County Road 341 was
vandalized first.
Thieves reportedly stole the cop-
per wiring.connecting the unit to its
power source.
Carlisle estimated that it will cost
83 Farms LLC $2,772.43 to replace
the wiring on the three tower pivot
and that's not counting labor ex-
penses involved.
On Monday morning, Carlisle
noticed a second irrigation pivot
belonging to 83 Farms LLC had
been vandalized. This time, thieves
reportedly removed nearly $7,000
worth of wiring off the seven tower
unit, which was set up in a field
next to Mt. Nebo Baptist Church.
The thieves reportedly pulled
down a graded road on the west-
ern border of the field, cut a barbed
wire fence and walked through the
peanuts to get across the field to the
irrigation pivot.
A 20-year farmer. Philman said
this summer marks the first time
his irrigation pivots have been tam-
pered with.
According to Lt. David Aderholt
of the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office, two irrigation pivots in Gil-
christ County belonging to White
Farms and Michael Wilkerson were
vandalized in the spring.
"We knew pivots were being
vandalized in the surrounding
area," Philman said. "We just had


A seven tower pivot located next to Mt. Nebo Baptist Church was vandalized over the weekend.


our fingers crossed that it wouldn't
happen to us."
Carlisle said 83 Farms LLC has be-
tween_ 50 and 60 irrigation pivots on
acreage in Gilchrist, Levy, Alachua,
Columbia and Suwannee counties, so
staking out fields to watch for people
trying to steal copper wiring off irri-
gation pivots is virtually impossible.
"It's going to cost us in excess of
$10,000 to repair the pivots, which
are insured," Philman said.
The crazy thing is, as Philman
pointed out, once the thieves strip the
copper wiring and sell it, they prob-
ably won't get $1,000 for the wire.
Kelly Philman is working with the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office to
catch whoever is responsible for van-
dalizing the pivots.
Philman is also offering a $1,000
reward for information leading to the
arrest of the individuals responsible
for the crime.
Anyone with information is asked
to call the Gilchrist County Sheriff's
Office at 463-3410.


Fallen firefighter fundraiser will be Sept. 3


Submitted
The Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire-
fighters will host a benefit breakfast
for two fallen firefighters on Septem-
ber 3, 2011.
Alex Hudson, a volunteer at the
Gilchrist County Fire Department,
and Chad Hood, a member of the
High Springs Fire Department, were
both killed recently in separate ve-
hicle crashes. They were long time
members of their respective depart-
ments and committed to public safe-
ty.
All the profits from the Sept. 3
breakfast, which is held the first
Saturday of every month in Spring
Ridge, will be donated to the fami-
lies.
Members of the Trenton Fire De-
partment, Gilchrist County Fire De-
partment, and High Springs Fire De-
partment will all join in to help serve
breakfast.
Chad was born on August 10. 1975,
in Gainesville and was 35 years old.
Chad came to work as a fulltime
firefighter for High Springs in Febru-
ary 2007. He always did his job. He
was a very quiet individual, always
putting his family first, participating
in community and church events; and


he doted on his son Wyatt. He en-
joyed hunting, camping, fishing and
spending time with his family.
Chad has family members scat-
tered all over Alachua and surround-
ing counties.
Chad was married to Susan and
leaves behind his parents, Brian and
Susan Hood of Gainesville; biologi-
cal father, Lewis W. DeLoach of Win-
ter Haven; special daughter, Michelle
Gil of Kingston; brothers, Jeremy
(Ashley) Hood and Jonathan Hood
of Gainesville; and grandmothers,
Beverly DeLoach of Winter Haven,
Rebecca DeLoach of Gainesville and
Lucille Hood of Palmyra, Pennsylva-
nia.
Alex W. Hudson 111 was born on
November 25, 1976 to parents Al-
exander W. Hudson Jr. and Tammy
Darling.
Alex joined the Trenton Fire De-
partment in 1994 and worked his way
up through the ranks all the way up to
fire chief.
Alex was an important influence in
the lives of past and current firefight-
ers throughout Gilchrist County.
He also helped mentor all of the
current officer staff at Trenton, in-
cluding the current fire chief.


Alex enjoyed all activities out-
doors, but nothing brought him more
joy than his wife Sherry and his three
kids; although, the Florida Gators
were a close second.
Alex will be remembered as a great
husband and father, brave firefighter,
compassionate chief, and the most
dedicated Gators fan.


The breakfast will begin at 7 a.m.
and close at 10 a.m. The fire station
is on County Road 340 about a mile
west of the Ginnie Springs entrance.
Please make checks out to Spring
Ridge Volunteer Fire Department.

Commissioner Tommy Langford

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Page Three


COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


A simple thank you seems paltry
when trying to express gratitude to
the residents of Gilchrist County who
heeded our call for school supplies.
From 73 sticks of glue to over
1,200 color crayons, local residents
gave far more than we could have
possibly hoped, considering the
tough economic times we are cur-
rently living in.
It's amazing t6 me how the Jour-
nal's annual school supply drive has
grown by leaps and bounds each year
since we started the collection four
years ago. As the number of supplies
donated has increased each year, s6
have the number of students in Tren-
ton and Bell schools who truly need
a pencil to write with and paper to
write on.
Many of you brought in supplies,


but some of you opted to bring in
money so we could purchase supplies
to fill the collection boxes set up in
our office.
Armed with a handful of back to
school coupons and school supply
lists from the elementary and middle/
high schools, I went shopping last
week. Let me say, filling a' buggy to
capacity with school supplies is the
highlight of my August. My daughter,
Allie Claire was in heaven as well!
She would point and tell me what
her back to school picks were. While
I didn't buy any Elmo backpacks as
my 2-year-old suggested, I did pick
up backpacks, index cards, paper,
pens, nap mats and much more!
When I finally made it to the check
out lane to pay for the supplies, the
cashier took one look at my buggy,


then at my ever-expanding stomach,
and my toddler before saying, "....so,
just how many kids do you have!?"
I wanted so badly to tell her, 2,600,
because that's the number of students
attending schools in Gilchrist County.
I resisted the urge to see herjaw drop,
and explained where I work and what
we do.
On Monday morning I found my-
self leaning over the front counter of
the Journal office and explaining to
a local grandmother why I couldn't
give her some of the school supplies
we collected.
You see, the school supply drive
operates like this, the community,
brings in supplies, I sort the supplies
based on each school's supply list and
separate them equally between the el-


ementary and middle/high schools in
Bell and Trenton. Once the supplies
are sorted, they are taken in boxes to
each school's guidance office, where
the guidance counselor stores and
Distributes them as needed.
When I broached the idea of a
school supply drive to the editor four
years ago, I knew we would need to
involve the guidance offices at each
school because the guidance counsel-
ors know the students, and the needs,
whereas we do not.
The Journal staff and I are humbled
by the community support the school
supply drive receives each year and
want to say thank you again to every-
one who gave so that local children
would not have to do without, or en-
dure shame this school year.


L ett e r s t o t e E d it o r T


To Gilchrist County parents
of school aged children

You should have been there!
If you weren't, shame on you.
This note is addressed to all
Gilchrist County parents of school-
aged children who did NOT attend
one of the two planned meetings this
past week sponsored by the School
Board.
The meetings were announced
twice in the Gilchrist County Jour-
nal, far in advance so anyone of you
could have made plans to attend. The
information given was dynamic and
clear, despite all the challenges which
the school district is facing.
Mr. Don Thomas, the school super-
intendent, and his staff went to great
lengths in preparing a power point
presentation and a free, bound hand-
out, explaining the dilemma which


the school system is in because of de-
creased, cut, or non-funding of edu-
cational requirements for our county
public school students. Although
Gilchrist County has been an "A/B"
school system with very dedicated
teachers, we, as educators in. the
homeschool sector, believe that some
of the mandates from the State DOE
are too demanding and unobtainable.
There was so much more present-
ed, and parent turnout was pitiful.
We attended as taxpayers with no
children in school. So those of you,
John Q. Public, who were NOT at
any one of the two meetings, where
you would have learned something as
to the critical issues being faced by
Mr. Thomas and the School Board,
when things get upsetting, you have
no room to complain or jump on any-
body's case.

President's Executive Order

Dear Editor,
I am a concerned citizen of Tren-
ton, a rural farming community, and
I learned about an Executive Order
signed by President Obama in June
of 2011. I received this e-mail from
a friend, who received it from the
Gainesville Tea Party. I am not one
to blindly believe everything on the
Internet, so I looked up the actual
Executive Order and I have copied
it below so everyone can read it for
themselves.
This is extremely serious, folks.
Please talk this up among your friends
and neighbors. I encourage you to
write or call Speaker Boehner and
your local representatives and ask
them to stop this Executive Order.
Time is of the essence. The president
is doing as much harm to this country
as he can in the time he has left.

The Other Thief On A Cross
(Kent Heaton)


When the Romans crucified Jesus, they compounded
His shame by crucifying-the Lord between two criminals.
They were probably the same class of robber as Barabbas
(Matthew 27:16-26; Mark 15:7-15; Luke 23:18; John
18:40). Matthew writes that as the people blasphemed the
dying Savior the two "robbers who were crucified with
Him reviled Him with the same thing" (Matthew 27:44).
The humiliation Jesus suffered in the manner of His death
was orchestrated to bring about the greatest shame. The
whole world was screaming at Him and reviling Him.
Then the Lord spoke through broken and parched lips,
"Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do"
(Luke 23:34).
The words of Jesus struck a cord in one of the robbers;
but it did not help the heart of the other robber who
shouted to Christ, "If You are the Christ, save Yourself
and us" (Luke 23:39). The tone of the robber was one of
blasphemy and while he pled for Christ to save Himself
and the other thief, he really only had concern about
himself. There was no faith in the miracle of Jesus from
this criminal. Until his dying breath the man would hold
hatred close and spew only words of loathing towards
Jesus.
Roman law had placed the two robbers at Golgotha for
good cause. The other thief acknowledged that while
Jesus had done nothing to deserve what He bore; his
companion and he well deserved everything they were
getting. He replied, "Do you not even fear God, seeing
you are under the same condemnation? And we indeed
justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but
this Man has done nothing wrong" (Luke 23:40-41).
The boast of the braggart criminal was proudly shouted
for all to hear but the penitent thief knew he was in the
presence of the Christ. Then he said to Jesus, "Lord,


remember me when You come into Your kingdom." And
Jesus said to him, "Assuredly, I say to you, today you
will be with Me in Paradise" (Luke 23:42-43). One thief
went to Paradise and one thief went to a place of torment.
In Luke 16 Jesus tells the story of Lazarus and the rich
man who both died but found themselves in very different
circumstances. We can read the story of the two thieves in
a similar manner: "And being in torments in Hades, [the
boastful thief] lifted up his eyes and saw Abraham afar
off and [the penitent thief] in his bosom" (Luke 16:23)..
The robber who blasphemed the Lord saw Jesus die but
his own death would not come about until the soldiers
broke his legs (John 19:32). The Lord would not hear his
scream on earth but would shortly hear his cry for mercy
after death. As the wicked thief passed to torment he
realized the one who was crucified with him was the only
hope he had. The penitent thief would be carried by
angels to the bosom of Abraham. Was there a similar
conversation between the tormented criminal and the
Lord in Hades? We are left to wonder.
The two thieves represent the nature of man. Some
men see Jesus for who He is and understand that eternal
life can only come from asking for mercy "remember
me." Most people are filled with indignation and die with
blasphemy on their lips in rejecting the only hope given
to man. They live for themselves and die for themselves.
In death the crucilied Jesus will no longer be a Savior but
the risen Judge. "He has appointed a day on which He
will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom
He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all
by raising Him from the dead" (Acts 17:31). The thief
was surprised when he awoke in torment. Will you be
surprised?

I'm continuing to share my trip
to Maine with Just Southern readers
this week. Beth and I flew out of the
St. Petersburg-Clearwater Airport
on Friday, and after a short nod-stop
three hour flight we landed in Bangor,
Maine. Both airports are really small
and easy to get around and best of all
our flight was very economical.
After arriving we jumped in our
rental car and headed for Augusta
and the 34th Annual Maine Quilt
Show. This event is held each year
in the Civic Center and draws a large
crowd. The show is about the size of
the one held each year in Jackson-
ville. After viewing several hundred,
really pretty quilts and purchasing a
little fabric, we stumbled into a room
where Wendy Caton Reed of Bath,
Maine, quilts were on display. I loved
all of her quilts. Most looked like an-
tique quilts because Wendy loves his-
toric quilts and has spent a lot of time
studying and reproducing them. She
was hard at work on what she called
a Maine Potholder Quilt. Accord-
ing to Wendy this style of quilt was
only made in Maine, and the oldest
one dates back to around 1847. It was
very interesting to watch her work
on her quilt and see her beautiful
hand quilting. She was appliqueing
about seven-inch squares and adding'
batting and backing fabric and then
hand quilting each square individu-
ally. Next she finished each square by
adding the binding. She then whip-
stitched them together which turned
the many individual finished squares
into one completed quilt. Needless to
say, we had a great time at the show.
That night we met Beth's friend
Lisa in Belgrade Lakes. This area
is maybe an hour north of Augusta.
We walked around this beautiful
old scenic town. Many of the older
homes were built in the early part of
the 1800s. We visited Days' Gener-
al Store which was a lot of fun. We
purchased some maple candy and
syrup. We ate supper at the Village
Inn which was built about 1920. The
dining room overlooked one of the
fingers of Belgrade Lake. Yes, I did
eat lobster again. In fact, I had lob-
ster and crab cakes. To give you some
idea of how pretty the glassy waters
were reflecting the evergreens and
huge rocks along the lake shore, this
was the lake where On Golden Pond
was filmed. I don't believe I've ever
seen a prettier lake.
The next morning we headed east
from Augusta. I was amazed at the
amount of Queen Ann's Lace, Gold-
en Rod, and wild pink roses that were
blooming on the roadside, miles and
miles of beautiful wild flowers. We
traveled to Bar Harbor and the Aca-
dia National Park which was without
a doubt one of the most scenic parks I
have ever visited. The view from Ca-
dillac Mountain is breathtaking.
We wandered several hiking trails
that were at one time carriage roads
for the rich people who owned sum-
mer homes on Mount Desert Island,
such as the Vanderbilt and Ford
families. We visited Sand Beach and
walked down Ocean Path to Thunder
Hole. This pathway was along the
edge of the massive rocks which line
the shore on this part of the island. It
was a sight to see the waves crash-
ing into the rocks at the water's edge.
All the coast of Maine seems a good
place to lobster, and we spent some
time watching the lobster boats bob-
bing around while they pulled their
lobster traps from the rough cold
waves.
As luck would have it, we just
happened to arrive at Jordan Pond
Restaurant at lunch time. Years ago
a huge old inn and restaurant stood
on the same spot where the current
restaurant is located today. It was re-
built after a fire by funds donated by
people who wanted to see a place for
people to gather in the same beautiful
spot overlooking the water. We en-
joyed the popovers and jam that the
restaurant is famous for and a bowl
of lobster bisque, which was simply
divine.
In the afternoon we went out on a
lobster boat and learned a whole lot
about the lobster industry that is of
course huge in Maine. In fact, our
boat captain said 93 million pounds
of lobster were taken in Maine last
year. While on the boat in French-
man's Bay, we saw a really neat old
lighthouse built in 1875 on what is
known as Egg Rock. This was the
first of many old lighthouses we vis-
ited while in Maine. The rock was
also home to gray seals and harbor
seals as well as a bald eagle.
The next day we drove the eastern
loop of Acadia National Park and
visited the Bass Harbor Head Light-
house which is still being lived in by
a Coast Guard family. This is the only


lighthouse that we saw that a family
still lived in. Most of the lighthouses
on Maine's rocky shore line are still
active working lighthouses with
warning bells, but today they are run
remotely by computers; and many of
the outer island lighthouses are pow-
ered by solar panels.
After leaving the part of Maine
known as Down East, we traveled in-
land to Farmington where we had a
nice lunch and visited with our Maine
friend Lisa. She took us on a tour of
the area around Farmington.
Lisa drove up onto Voters Hill, and
we had a panoramic view of the farm
and forest land below us. We found a
grove of sugar maple trees that had
plastic tubing running from tree to
tree. All the little tubes run into a
central line where in the winter the
maple sap runs down hill to the sugar
house. Then the sap is cooked down
until it becomes that delicious maple
syrup.
Late that afternoon we drove north
to Rangeley Lake Where we spent the
night. That evening we took a drive
up to the small town or village of
Oquossoc which was really rustic in
a "Great North Woods" sort of way.
The main road was gravel with some
pot holes-but it was sort of like step-
ping back in time to an early logging
camp. They had a really neat brown
log church built in 1913 which was
very well cared for and we both
thought it would have been neat to at-
tend Sunday service in the log church
surrounded by the tall pine and bal-
sam trees.
The next day we drove a big circle
through some beautifully -timbered
country. We traveled up to Stratton
and part way to Eustis. Along this
scenic road we saw moose grazing
and some of the tallest pines I've
seen anywhere. According to the sign
they were called the Cathedral Pines.
I'm sure they were old growth pines.
Next week we will head back to
the coast of Southern Maine.
Do you have a hard pear tree in the
yard? This is the time of year when
our local pears are ripe and many
times falling to.the ground. The fol-
lowing recipe makes one loaf of good
pear bread which is great anytime of
day but especially good with that first
cup of morning coffee.


6 tablespoons soft butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup all-purpose flour
(sift flour before measuring)
teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
'to 3 cup of chopped pecans or
walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease and flour a loaf pan. Beat but-
ter and sugar until creamed.
While butter and sugar are cream-
ing, mix all the dry ingredients.
Add eggs and vanilla to creamed
mixture and beat until incorporated.
Remove bowl from mixer stand and
stir pears. Next add the flour mixture
and pecans or walnuts that have been
tossed in 1 tablespoon flour and stir
well. Then pour into loaf pan and
bake for 60 to 65 minutes. After pear
bread is done, cool in pan for 15 min-
utes and then turn out onto a wire
rack. After loaf is completely cooled,
you can serve as is or top with the
following glaze.


iu/te Krl//l/ze

cup buttermilk
cup sugar
3 tablespoon butter
1 teaspoon cornstarch
14 teaspoon baking soda
teaspoon vanilla
teaspoon cinnamon
In sauce pan mix sugar, buttermilk,
butter, cornstarch and baking soda.
Bring mixture to steady boil. After
the glaze has cooled, stir in vanilla
and cinnamon. Pour over cooled loaf
or pour a tablespoon over each slice
when it is served.

Jleart Matters

Wilderness Series 5
Submitted
Hindsight can usually give us a
good idea of what eventually turns
out to be a good or bad decision...af-
ter all it is 20/20. As we continue
our Wilderness Series, the book of
Deuteronomy is an important stop as
it recounts the entire desert journey.
Nearing the end of his part of the
journey, Moses prepares to die, and
looks back, as well as ahead, in order
to encourage and strengthen God's
people:'
"In the fortieth year, on the first
day of the eleventh month, Moses
proclaimed to the Israelites all that
the Lord had commanded him con-
cerning them...See, I have given you
this land. Go in and take possession
of the land that the Lord swore He
would give to your fathers--to Abra-
ham, Isaac and Jacob--and to their de-
scendants after them." (Deut. 1:3,8)
I believe it is wise to take advan-
tage of the hindsight of one who has
experienced various challenges in
life. Realizing this, I want us to look
closely atwhat Moses considers im-
portant elements of the journey. In-
terestingly, the first token had to do
with the issue of responsibility:
"At that time I said to you, "You
are too heavy a burden for me to carry
alone...how can I bear your problems
and your burdens and your disputes
all by myself? Choose some wise,
understanding and respected men
from each of your tribes, and I will
set them over you."(Deut. 1:9,12-13)
Moses' admission helps us under-
stand how all kinds of "wilderness
experiences" add stress to our already
overloaded lives. While not many of
us will lead thousands through the
desert, Moses' delegation of tasks
could be a great stress reducer for any-
one going through a difficult season.
Perhaps this extra pressure comes in
the form of added responsibilities at


work, caring for a sick child or parent,
financial strain, personal health prob-
lems, or even a welcome change like
a new baby, building a new home, or
getting a new job. Whatever is add-
ing extra stress in your family, could
a reassignment of responsibilities
help lighten the load?
Perhaps your spouse could use a
break from juggling the bills on a
tight budget, or your teen would en-
joy a weekend pass on their chores
while balancing work and school.
What about the relative taking care
of elderly parents...how much would
they enjoy a little help? On the other
hand, Moses' example reminds us
that it is wise to ask for help when
you are the one overwhelmed with
responsibility. We have come to
equate asking for help with admitting
failure, but as the Israelites answered
Moses, "...What you propose to do
is good." (Deut. 1:14) I believe they
understood it was not only good for
Moses, but for them as well. Asking
for help during difficult times or cri-
sis may just be the very best thing we
can do for those we love... because
every heart matters.
Blessings, Angie

Social Security
question and answer
Submitted by Kay Louder
Social Security District Man-
ager, Gainesville
Question:
I am receiving Social Security
disability benefits. Will my ben-
efits be affected if I work and earn
money?
Answer:
It depends. We have special
rules called "work incentives"
that help you keep your monthly
payments and Medicare cover-
age while you test your ability
to work. For example, you can
receive full benefits regardless of
how much you earn, as long as
you report your work activity and
continue to have a disabling im-
pairment during a trial work pe-
riod. For more information about
work incentives, we recommend
that you read our publication,

Corbin Wiggins'

pathology test

comes back clear
Corbin Wiggins is recovering well
after undergoing surgery last week to
remove cancerous lymph nodes in his
body.
The Trenton High School junior
was released from the hospital on
Sunday and is now resting at home.
On Monday the family learned that
Corbin's pathology test came back
clear.
According to Corbin's mother, An-
gie Wiggins, he should start back to
school in six to eight weeks and if all
continues to go well, the family hopes
that Corbin's doctors will release him
in November.
Again, Corbin and his family
would like to thank the community
for the many prayers and fundraising
efforts held during this difficult time.


School


District


changes
Continued from page 1
gins; school district employees are
also facing new regulations requiring
3 percent of their salary to be used
to help pay for retirement, which ac-
cording to Thomas translates to a 3.
percent cut in all employee salaries.
Also, under Senate Bill 736, profes-
sional service contracts have been
eliminated, so employees will not
be on annual contracts with student
performance tied to a teacher's salary
and administrator's evaluation.
"This is one area where we are fur-
ther ahead than other school districts
in the state," Thomas explained.
"Gilchrist County is one of three
counties in the state that has been
measuring student performance and
relating it to a teacher's salary for
several years now."
Also new this school year will be
the implementation of Common Core
Standards which will require teachers
at each.grade level to teach students
what they should kndw to meet stan-
dards, which will then be tested by
FCAT and other standardized tests.
"The focus on rigorous instruction
has to begin at the elementary level
in order for students to be ready for
what lies ahead in the curriculum,"
Thomas said.
For example, under the Common
Core Standards a kindergarten student
will now be required to associate the
long and short sounds with common
spellings for the five major vowels,
recognize and name end punctuation,
solve addition and subtraction word
problems, not to mention being able
to analyze and compare two and three
dimensional shapes.
Under Senate Bill 4, high school
seniors will be facing tougher gradu-
ation requirements and students will
now be required to pass end of course
exams to earn credit in courses which
are required for graduation. Students
entering 9th grade in 2011-12 and
thereafter also must take one online
course as part of their 26 credits
needed to graduate. Based on FCAT
scores or scoring below a set score
on the ACT, students will also now
be required to take the PERT in the
11th grade to determine placement in
a college readiness course during the
12th grade year.
According to Thomas, the num-
ber of tests given over the computer
is growing rapidly, which requires
the school district to have a certain
amount of broadband width to allow
for the increase in internet activity. At
a per month fee of $2,900, the school
district has increased from 18 megs
to 25 megs in preparation for the start
of the 2011-12 school year.
"The government is just going to
have to back off the things that cost
extra money," Thomas said. "I think
computerized testing is great, but
we can't afford the band width we
need."

For the second consecutive year
Otis Ware II of Bell has attended
the "How Stuff Works" Summer
Engineering Technology camp
hosted by the Florida Gateway Col-


When it came time for public com-
ment, Bell High School teacher Bill
Martin pointed out that the elimina-
tion of PECO funding given to public
schools in 2011-12 makes him won-
der if the state is trying to do away
with public education in favor of
charter and virtual schools.
"They haven't said it, but charter
schools got $54 million in PECO
funding this year," Thomas said. "We
have always used that money for fa-
cility repairs..."
Another longtime educator, John
Yencho, asked if the school district
has considered going to a four-day
week. Thomas responded, saying he
had some personal concerns with
that suggestion. Primarily, what par-
ents would do with their children on
Friday, and educationally, would it
hurt students to have that long of a
weekend break in between instruc-
tion. Thomas also pointed out that a
four-day work week would mean a
loss in salary for bus drivers and caf-
eteria workers.
"The savings on energy would not
be that significant, but as it stands
right now everything is on the table,"
Thomas said.
Kathy Porter questioned the num-
ber of district personnel and asked
why cuts had not been made at the
district office as well. Thomas replied
by saying that cuts have been made at
the district office as well, primarily in
the loss of a director of personnel po-
sition that was recently eliminated.
Consolidating schools was also
suggested by a parent attending the
public forum. Thomas explained
that if Gilchrist County had just one
county high school the district would


lege in Lake City.
The camp focused on communi-
cation, creative problem solving and
design. Also, the kids learned about
bridge building, mousetrap cars and
rockets. Fun was had by all.


lose funding and there is no way the
school district could get the money
to build one centrally located school.
The superintendent also pointed out
numerous advantages to having small
schools, like Trenton and Bell.
"We would have to have the money
and the community support to con-
solidate the schools and I just don't
think we have that right now," Thom-
as said.
The importance of shopping lo-
cally was also brought up by School
Board member Bob Clemons, who
encouraged the public to spend mon-
ey within the county, thereby build-
ing up the tax base.
"The most important thing any of
us can do is saturate lawmakers with
our voices; we've got to just say,
enough is enough!" said Michelle
Carter, school board member. "What
they [lawmakers] are asking us to do
is impossible."
As Thomas said in his closing re-
marks, the Gilchrist County School
District, along with school districts
throughout the state, are facing a
number of unprecedented challenges
in the years ahead, but officials are
working to make sure that the dis-
trict can get through the hard times
ahead.
"If any school district in the state
can get through all that we face, I
kiow it's going to be our district.
There is no way you can maintain the
kind of success we haveeover the last
10 years without good people work-
ing together," Thomas said. "I feel
like we are surrounded by issues we
can hardly deal with...the good news
is we can attack in any direction we
want to."

our day with a good game of Wii. On
Tuesday, one of the hottest days, we
were glad to have ice cream to fin-
ish the day with. We shared a good
ole game of tug a war with sections
against sections on Wednesday. To
refresh us onThursday, after being on
the field practicing our drills, we got
a slipping good treat with a slip and
slide. Friday, our seniors parked their
cars on the field for their last band
camp. Then we ended our week with
a large turnout at our 'Sneak Peek'
preview. The name of the show is
"Tribute," which recalls World War
II events. There are five pieces to the
show.
We would like to thank some peo-
ple that made this week much easier
to get through--Beth Sauls, Phyllis
Robinson, Jeri Speck, Nora' Garica,
Mary Ann Knighten,' Mrs. Avery,
Mrs. Sheifield, and Lori Mikell for
help with sewing and fitting uni-
forms. Our band will look sharp this
year because of your help and we got
it all down in only two days. Thanks
also to Allen Travis for suppling wa-
ter all week and the tent to keep us out
of the sun during our water breaks,
and Steven Cutts for mowing and
lining the field after the rain storm
Monday night. Thank you to all our
staff who did a great job this week--
Larah James (pit), Justin Seip (drum

TI-HIP'ZD%-AI v TI I0 l INTAe


County agrees to $40,012.64

settlement with Hipp Construction


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sion approved a monetary settlement
with Hipp Construction, Inc. Mon-
day in their August 15 meeting, and
the Alachua based construction firm
has agreed to accept all terms of the
agreement.
John McPherson, Gilchrist Coun-
ty Attorney, reported to the board
the settlement being recommended
involving SW 70th Street-Otter
Springs Road and Hipp Construction
is being recommended for approval
by the committee of Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison, Jr., Engineer Lee
Mills, County Administrator Ron
McQueen, Road Superintendent
Billy Cannon, County Attorney with
assistance from Clerk of Court Joe
Gilliam and County Finance Director
Jackie Johnson.
McPherson explained there are
four elements of thi's proposed settle-
ment. Gilchrist County will pay Hipp
Construction the amount of the in-
voice to Pave-Rite, Inc. $40,012.64.
Hipp Construction will release the
county from all other amounts owed
under the contract; Gilchrist County
will release Hipp from any further li-
ability involving the former construc-
tion of the Otter Springs Road. Gil-
christ County will not proceed with
debarment proceedings against Hipp,
and the contractor will be returned
to good standings with all right and
abilities to bid on future projects.
Gilchrist County will use the balance
of project funds to offset cost of hav-
ing low bidder on the Wilcox-Otter


Springs Road project involving V.E.
Whitehurst & Son Co. do the repav-
ing and shoulder work on the Otter
Springs Road.
The settlement identified and in-
cluded the following numbers: there
is $66,404.77 remaining in fund-
ing involving the Otter Springs
project. Hipp construction was
owed $59,323.16 and the Alachua
based contracting firm will receive
$40,012.64 involving this agreement.
The balance of the funds remaining
in this project are $26,392.13. White-
hurst Construction bid on the Otter
Springs Road is $91,958.70. Gilchrist
County will have to pay $65,566.57
to have the road resurfaced and re-
paired correctly by Whitehurst Con-
struction.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. made the motion to approve the
recommended settlement, and Com-
missioner Thomas agreed with a
second. Commissioner Sharon Lang-
ford explained in the discussion she
felt Hipp Construction should be re-
moved from a future projects list of
approved contractors to bid construc-
tion projects in Gilchrist County for
one to two years.
Virginia Johns addressed the Com-
mission, asking the board to not re-
move Hipp Construction from the
approved list of contractors to bid on
future construction projects in Gil-
christ County. Commission Chair-
man Randy Durden told Ms. Johns
that Hipp Construction was getting
off very well involving their work on
the Otter Springs Road project.

Junior Olympics


Submitted
Gilchrist County resident Macy
Roberts, along with six other.girls
from All-American Twirling Acad-
emy's Competition Team, the "All-
Stars," attended the AAU Jr. Olym-
pics in New Orleans, Louisiana on
August 2.
In June, the girls auditioned with
two baton twirling routines "Gitchee,
Gitchee Goo" and the theme song to
the TV show "The Monkees" in Or-
lando, Florida. Both routines quali-
fied them to'compete in the 2011
Jr. Olympics. The girls practiced


throughout the summer preparing to
attend the event.
Once they arrived in New Orleans,
the All-Stars were in the top teams to
make it through the preliminaries on
August 2 and into the finals on Au-
gust 3. The All-Stars received a silver
medal for their 'Monkees" routine
and a bronze medal for the "Gitchee
Goo" routine. The All-Stars are un-
der the instruction of June Stoeber.
Macy is the daughter of Wesley
and DeAnna Roberts and the grand-
daughter of William and Helen Rob-
erts.
