Sanders says, 'Stop the sale of K2-Spice'

By John M. Ayers
Members of the Bell Town Council
talked at length Thursday night about
a 15-year-old Bell student who used
K2-Spice, a synthetic marijuana, that
was purchased at a convenience store "
across from Bell High School.
Councilman Hugh Sanders said he
was adamantly opposed to K2-Spice
being sold in Bell.
Prior to the 15-year-old's use of the
product on Friday, Aug. 26, which led
to Gilchrist County EMS being called '7 '"
to treat the juvenile, the council and
the community were reportedly un-
aware that this type of product was O r
available to anyone over the age of -
18 at Country Quick Stop. 1.
Many local residents now want to
know how a juvenile obtained this - .-
product, which he then smoked in a -.----
pipe on the school campus, last week
in Bell. Country Quick Stop, or Moon's BP as the store is also called, has reportedly been selling Kl-Spice to Bell

10 years later: Gilchrist native recalls


the chaos of 9/11 from Ground Zero


By Carrie A. Mizell
September 11, 2001 started out
like any other day for Gilchrist
County native Lori Bryant-Chin.
Telling her dog goodbye, Bry-
ant-Chin walked out the door of
her apartment building and made
the short walk to work at one of
seven buildings that made up the
World Trade Center complex in
Lower Manhattan.
A vice president for Deutsche
Bank, a German bank with offices
in New York City, Bryant-Chin re-
members sitting at her desk on the
fifth floor of 4 World Trade Center
when she felt the building shake.
Bryant-Chin had been at work
some 15 minutes, when the first
of two hijacked, passenger planes,
American Airlines Flight 11 out
of Boston, crashed into the north
tower of the World Trade Center.
"My co-worker wanted to run to
the window to see what was going
on. I said, 'Think about where you
are, I'm getting out of here!"' Bry-
ant-Chin recalls. f
The 1986 Trenton High School
graduate made her way to the stair-
well and by the time she reached
the ground floor, she heard the se-
curity guard screaming for every-
one to get out of the building.
Though Bryant-Chin lived just
one block west of the 16-acre
World Trade Center complex, she
was stopped short on the street by
the airplane parts ablaze, and litter-
ing the roadway.
"I told myself not to walk straight
to my apartment. Instead I walked
out of my way by going down and
around," Bryant-Chin said.
It was while walking through the
congested streets covered in soot,
that Bryant-Chin saw the second
hijacked airplane, United Airlines
Flight 175 from Boston, crash into
the south tower of the World Trade


The World Trade Center in a photo taken by Peter Doran.


Center.
It was 9:03 a.m. and both towers
were on fire.
"While I was walking, I saw a man
come out on his balcony and I asked
him if he had -a television and what
was going on," Bryant-Chin said.
"He said, 'It's just a small Cessna
plane that flew into the building."'
At that point, Bryant-Chin said her
cell phone was still operating, but she
knew she wouldn't be able to use it
for long, so she called a cousin who
lived outside of Alachua.
"I knew she would be home, and
near the TV, so I called her and said,
'You are about to see on the news that
an airplane has hit the World Trade
Center. Call my parents and tell them
I am okay,'"'Bryant-Chin said.
Feeling disoriented by all that was
going on around her, Bryant-Chin
made her way to Battery Park, a 25-


acre public park located on the south-
ern tip of Manhattan.
"My cell phone wasn't working
and there was a long line of people
waiting in line to use a pay phone,"
Bryant-Chin said. "Men were taking
off their undershirts, soaking them in
the fountain and putting them over
their faces to protect against all the
debris, soot and ash falling."
As she sat, unsure of what to do
next, Bryant-Chin said she remem-
bers thinking she had to make it back
to her apartment to get her dog.
"While looking back at the Twin
Towers, Bryant-Chin remembers see-
ing papers falling from the sky and
people jumping from the windows of
the buildings.
"You could see it,"hear it and smell'
it all going on around you," Bryant-
Chin recalls. "People were having to
decide if they would die by fire or by


jumping to their deaths."
She began walking again and
was stopped by a woman standing
at the door of a deli.
The woman asked, "Are you
okay?"
I said, "I don't know..."
Covered in soot, Bryant-Chin
was ushered into the deli and told
she could use a landline phone.
She immediately called her fa-
ther, Paul Bryant in Trenton, and
told him that she was okay.
"My dad said, 'Get in a yellow
cab and figure out' how to get to
Florida!"' Bryant-Chin recalls with
a laugh.
From the deli, .Bryant-Chin saw
the south tower of the World Trade
Center collapse just after 10 a.m.
The tower fell to the streets, send-
ing up a cloud of dust and debris

By Carrie A. Mizell
Fall is in the air; okay, so maybe
the slightly tangy smell in the air

degree heat, than warm apples and
mulled cider, but one can dream. Es-
pecially, Florida residents! It's Sep-
tember after all and while other parts
of the United States see a drop in
temperatures this month and leaves
on the cusp of change, all Floridians
get is a price break on swim floats

mid weather, north Florida boasts a

that rumbled down the streets of
Manhattan.
Shortly after, the deli closed and
Bryant-Chin was forced to continue
walking the 10 blocks to her apart-
ment.
"There was so much smoke..." Bry-
ant-Chin said. "When I got near the
apartment, a police officer told me
that I had to leave the area and come
back in 10 days., I told him I didn't
have a relative for 1200 miles."
Bryant-Chin ignored the police of-
ficer directive and continued on, mak-
ing her way to the apartment building
she called home.
When she got there, she saw that
all the windows had been blown out
of the building and that a portion of it
was on fire. After talking with a fire-
fighter, Bryant-Chin was able to get
her dog safely out of the building.
She then evacuated Manhattan by
why of a tugboat crossing the Hudson
River.
"I didn't even know where we were
going," Bryant-Chin said.
Thankfully, her cell phone started
working again and she was able to get
a message from a friend, who lived
an hour ,away from her apartment.
"I left my desk at work at 9 a.m.
and it took me until 7 p.m. to get
to his house," Bryant-Chin said. "I
think I took like five different types
of. transportation trying to get there."
It was six weeks before Bryant-
Chin was able to return to her apart-
ment and recover any possessions
worth salvaging.
"It took me longer than that to get
over my fear of getting on'an air-
plane," Bryant-Chin said.
Sunday marks 10 years since the.
terrorists' attacks on the'World Trade
Center.
Today, Lori Bryant-Chin, her hus-
band, Wayne Chin and their two chil-
dren, ages 5 and 2, live in the. Bronx.
Wayne Chin has worked as a NYPD
police officer for the last 19 years.
"September 11 has big significance
for both my husband and me," Bry-
ant-Chin said. "We were both there.
He was trying to get people out of
the buildings. It could have fallen on
him..."
Bryant-Chin said that most of what
Americans see on television about
September 11, 2011 is accurate.
Though she did not know anyone
personally who died in the World
Trade Center attack, a co-worker's
sister was killed.
"I had a neighbor who stayed home
late trying to figure out how to have a
dog shipped that she was adopting,"
Bryant-Chin said. "Had she gone to
work like she normally did, she might
have died."-
Nothing was ever recovered from
her office inside World Trade Center
4, including a birthday gift she had in
her desk drawer and intended to mail
to her stepmother Susan Bryant in
Trenton on that day.
"So many people didn't move back
to my complex," Bryant-Chin said. "I
never knew if they just didn't return,
or if they were killed."

Firefighter fundraiser


raises nearly $4,000


By Charlie Perez
While cleaning up the fire sta-
tion on Saturday, the overall com-
ments from all the firefighters and
volunteers were, "What an amazing
fundraiser!" The largest crowd ever
hosted by the Spring Ridge Fire De-
partment and the most money that
was ever raised, was everyone's ob-
servation. The event was bold and'
the results were great!
"We had an amazing group come
together and work hard towards one
focal point; that was raising funds to
help the two families of our fallen
firefighters," said Don Alexander of
the Spring Ridge Volunteer Fire De-
partment.
Through the combined efforts of
the Gilchrist County Fire Department,
Trenton Fire Department and High
Springs Fire Department, all worked
hard, and in three hours were able to
collect nearly $4,000; after expenses
each family will receive $1,692,75.
The fundraiser on Saturday, Sept. 3
was a benefit breakfast on behalf of
two fallen firefighters. Alex Hudson,
a volunteer at the Gilchrist County
Fire Department, and Chad Hood, a
member of the High Springs Fire De-
partment, were both killed recently in
separate vehicle crashes. They were
longtime members of their respective
departments and committed to public

safety.
A team of about 20 firefighters,
firefighter families and other vol-
unteers joined together to provide
breakfast to the htindreds of people
who showed up.
"We were prepared," said Lee
Schaltenbrand, one of the volunteers.
Lee pointed to all the work that
was required, from buying all the
supplies, to getting the-word out to
the community. One particular as-
pect of the efforts was the important
role that the local newspapers, the
Gilchrist County Journal and the
North Florida Herald, plus the lo-
cal radio stations provided in getting
the word out. Special thanks goes to
Kevin McKay of WKZY. All the ef-
forts from the special people behind
the scene, to the cooks, to all those
that set up and cleaned the station af-
ter the event, our hats are off to you.
The most important thanks goes to all
those who not only came by to have
breakfast, but all those who have sent
in donations for the fundraiser by
mail. One donation came in from.as
far away as West Virginia. "Thank
you" to all the people from the area
that made this a major success for
the Spring Ridge Fire Department.
Without your support this fundraiser
could not have been the huge success
it was!

over 110 attendees learning the im-
portance of having happy, informed
employees from Christine Davlin, a

'line of relationships we are trying to
create."
The annual summit not only

Dear Editor,
I am writing today in response to
Carrie Mizell's column last week
concerning Gilchrist County's drug
problem. Yes, it's out there.
I have been doing some on line re-
search of this herbal incense called
K2-Spice that kids are smoking.
This is a synthetic cannabis marketed
as incense available under different
brand names. The side effects are
panic attacks, heart palpitations, hal-
lucinations, delusions, vomiting and
increased agitation. My source of in-
formation came from Florida HIDTA
K2-Spice Drug Alert Report.
I hope the Bell student learned
from this incident; he could be dead.
He also needs to reconsider his so
called friends, who were too worried
about themselves to get help for their
friend right away.
Drugs are not a way to just party
and have a good time; there are
major consequences. I see it every
day and I've lived it. Growing up
in South Florida in the seventies I
was exposed to drugs all my teen-
age life. I thank God everyday that I
had the sense to see what was going
on around me and to see what drugs
were doing to the people I was grow-
ing up with. I knew I didn't want to
be a strung out junkie.
One friend I grew up with and
knew all my life died a few years ago
on a bathroom floor in Burger King
with a needle in his arm. He was 38
when he died. I remember him in
junior high and high school smoking
pot then he went on to pills. The her-
oin came later. I never saw him not
high on something. His grandmother,
mom, dad, sisters, brother, and young
daughter buried him. Doesn't sound
much like a party to me.
I have also seen young women in
our community go from being beau-
tiful young girls to walking corpses
due to drugs.
Your life is such a gift. Please,
think twice about what you put in
your body and who your friends are.
Make the right choices. They won't
be the. easiest but you will never
regret it. The drugs will get their
clutches in you.
I don't know what Gilchrist Coun-
ty is doing about the drug problem.
One way I know how to fight back-is
to have no tolerance for it around me.
I will not spend my money in a store
that sells this garbage. There are sev-
eral in our county. The pretty bongs
in the window and behind the counter
are not for putting daisies in. It may
be legal to buy if you're over 18, but
that doesn't make it right to sell it.
These business owners should
have a responsibility about what they
sell. If you're going to do business in
a community, you should be an asset
not part of a growing problem be-
cause it sells and makes money. I am
all for making a profit and I wouldn't
deny anyone the American dream,
but not at the expense of our commu-
nity and its young people.
I hope these businesses will do
the right thing and quit selling these
products that promote drug use. I
won't be spending my money there
as long as they do.

When Jesus Became Angry (Continued)
(Kent Heaton)


Last week we noted two passages where Jesus became
angry at those who hardened their hearts against His
power (Mark 3:1-6) and when Peter sought to rebuke
Jesus for unveiling the plan of the Father for Jesus'
persecution and death (Mark 8:31-33). In the case of the
man with a withered hand the religious leaders could not
see Jesus for who He was (the Son of God) and sought
ways to destroy him. On one occasion Jesus describes the
terrible things that would happen to Him in Jerusalem at
the hands of the Jews and Peter rebukes the Lord for
saying such things. In the presence of the disciples the
Lord rebukes Peter for serving the will of Satan rather
than the will of God.
In Mark 10 we find the people bringing young children
to Jesus "that He might touch them, but the disciples
rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw
it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, 'Let the
little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for
of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly I say to you,
whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little
child will by no means enter it. 'And He took them up in
His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them"
(vvl3-16). Sometimes we look at children as a bother and
should not trouble adults. We put them in other rooms and
do not allow them to be part of the "',i, conversation.
Many churches now have "children's church "; separating
the children from the ;'adult" worship (whatever that is).
When we exclude children from important functions of.
life we are training them to be unconcerned about the
elderly, the needy, the worshipful; one another. They
should be trained to be respectful of adults and to glean


lessons from the time spent in the presence of Godly
people.
Jesus was greatly displeased by the action of His
disciples: What a powerful message the Lord sends to His
followers of the importance of children. He wanted to
spend time with the children. The Lord took time out of
His busy work to take children up in His arms and bless
them. His disciples rebuked the parents for wasting the
time of Jesus how audacious on the part of those men.
No one is unimportant to God and here we find the spirit
of Jesus greatly displeased at the action of those who
would keep children from Him.
Children teach us the character of the one who desires
to be part of the kingdom. In Matthew 18 Jesus taught the
heart of the child is the heart necessary to enter the
kingdom. A child has a heart of innocence born from
dependency to their parents. All those who want to be a
disciple of Christ must give their whole lives to the Father
in complete dependence (Matthew 7:24-34). There is a
spirit of forgiveness in children that is greatly lacking in
adults. The Lord taught forgiveness that can only come
from a child-like heart (Luke 17:3-4; Matthew 18:21-35).
Why would the action of the disciples anger Jesus?
Could they not see why Jesus came to earth to minister
to all men? Everyone was important to God and children
manifest the spirit lacking in the disciples. Jesus came to
bring compassion, understanding, forgiveness, peace,
truth and like a child Himself; offer His own life in
selfless love for those who did not deserve such mercy.
The work of the Lord can best be seen through the eyes of
children who have a simple trust.

needs your help

The Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice is seeking the help of the citizens
of Gilchrist County in combating
copper thefts within Gilchrist Coun-
ty. Our office has been combating
the air conditioning thieves for some
time, but at the beginning of August
2011 we experienced an outbreak of
copper thefts throughout the county
involving the theft of copper from
farm irrigation pivot systems.
During August approximately
twelve systems were vandalized
and the copper wiring cables taken.
Copper prices at scrap dealers have
risen from approximately $1.25 per
pound in 2009 to well above $4.00
per pound today. This makes cop-
per and other metals a tempting tar-
get to thieves. The cost of replacing
one outside ac condensing unit can
be well over three thousand dollars
to the home owner. The cost to the
farmer to replace the wiring cable
on his irrigation pivot can be well
over five thousand dollars depend-
ing on the length of the system. The
amount the suspect gets for the cop-
per or other metal is minor in rela-
tion to the cost to the victim which is
in the thousands of dollars. We have
made some arrests in these crimes,
but it appears that as long as there is
a buyer for the metal there will be a
thief to steal and sell it.
Along with increased Patrols by
the Sheriff's Office and the Sheriff's
Volunteers we have asked officers
from Fish and Wildlife, the Highway
Patrol and the Department of Agri-
culture who work daily in our county
for their assistance.
The theft of copper and other met-
als is a nationwide problem. Do a
simple Google search on the sub-
ject and you will find that the prob-
lem exists from Coast to Coast. We
are asking for your help and asking
you to become involved because you
live in the neighborhoods where the
thefts are occurring, you travel the
same highways that the thieves trav-
el. If you see anything suspicious,
"Please" report it to the Sheriff's Of-
fice. You need not give your name.
We only want your information.
Please provide as much information
as possible, what you saw, vehicle
description, tag, color, and the de-
scriptionr of any suspicious person.
By working together and looking out
for our neighbors we can combat this
continuing problem
Thank You for Your Assistance,
Daniel Slaughter

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


"Change begins with a whisper"
-from The Help
Just how long has it been since
you have gone out with the girls? I
recently went out with a couple of my
friends to a sandwich shop and then a
movie. It was the best $20 that I have
spent in a while. It seems that we all
get so busy just living our lives and
taking care of our families that we
sometimes forget to just spend time
with our friends.
If you have not been to the movies
in a while, let me give you a heads-
up; ticket prices are now at $10. As
we walked into the theater with our
tickets in hand we were wondering if
the movie The Help was going to be
worth it or not.
The two main parts were played
wonderfully by Viola Davis, who was
Aibileen, a maid in the movie, and
Emma Stone who played Skeeter, a
young writer fresh out of college. Oh,
and that Minnie played by Octavia
Spencer; she was a hoot. Although
she only had a supporting role, Min-
nie really made the movie.
The whole story was set in Jack-
son, Mississippi, in 1962. At that
time in our history the Civil Rights
movement was just taking shape in
the South. It was a hard and confus-
ing time for a lot of people.*
This movie just did it all for me
emotionally; I laughed and cried.
I was amazed at some of the old
homes. The movie was mostly filmed
in Greenwood, Mississippi. Such
things as the faded wallpaper in Ai-
bileen's home really took me back in
time to that era. I loved the flipped'
out hair styles and the wonderful
June Cleaver dresses. Toward the end
of the movie, Skeeter was wearing
a sweater that was just to die for. I
am also willing to forgive the person
who did not know that in 1962 there
were no round bales of hay. They
tried hard but misslipped there. May-
be next time they might bring a real
farmer in to advise them.
But most of all this movie made
me think back and reflect on our
culture and how far we have come in
fifty years. Oh, I know we still have
a ways to go, but we are slowly get-
ting there.
Yes, it was worth the $10 ticket
price and then some.
There must be ,as many old style
southern fried chicken recipes as
there are grandmas in the South. This
s the recipe I remember my grand-
mother using when I was a child.
Sweet memories still linger in my
mind of watching the white globs of
Crisco melting in her large black cast
ron frying pan. Oh my, the smell of
hat hot chicken frying up brown and
:rispy. Just as Minnie in the movie


believed in using Crisco to fry her
chicken, my grandmother did also. I
once had a friend who thought Crisco
was the world's greatest face mois-
turizer. Come to think of it, she did
have pretty skin.

o- tAev/ 3~a<

1 fryer cut into serving pieces
1 cup self-rising flour
V. teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
Milk
Crisco
Place a couple of scoops of Crisco
shortening in the bottom of a large
cast iron frying pan. When the short-
ening melts, you should have about
two inches of it in the bottom-of the.
pan, Sift the flour, salt and pepper
together. Put milk in a small bowl.
Wash chicken and pat dry with a
paper towels then salt and pepper it
lightly.
First roll each piece of chicken in
flour mixture.
Next dip chicken piece by piece
into bowl of milk, holding it over the
bowl until excess milk drips off. Now
roll chicken pieces in flour mixture
once again. If you run out of flour,
make up more pf the original mix-
ture. Drop into hot Crisco and fry on
each side until golden brown. After
chicken has cooked for about 8 min-
utes, turn it over and fry for another
8 minutes. Next cover chicken with
lid and turn heat down to medium
high and cook for another 8 minutes
or so, then remove lid and cook until
chicken has crisped up again. This
takes just a couple of minutes per
side.' Drain on paper towels.
I have a few suggestions on frying
chicken. After you wash the chick-
en, let it drain on paper towels for a
little while. It is important to let the
chicken come to almost room tem-
perature. This will keep the chicken
from being tough once it is cooked.
Cold chicken or any other meat for
that matter will be tough if it is put
into hot grease.
It is good to put a couple of strips
of wax paper on your kitchen coun-
ter so you can lay out chicken pieces
once you have floured them.
You can test the oil to see'if it is hot
enough to fry by sprinkling just a tiny
bit of flour into it to see if it floats on
top of the oil and starts to fry. If the
oil is not hot enough, the flour will
just sink to the bottom of the pan.
I usually heat my oil on high, but
soon after I drop the chicken in, I
turn the heat down a little somewhere
between high and medium high.
Every stove heats a little differently
so you can adjust yours accordingly.

K2-Spice should be banned
Continued from page 1


After much discussion, the council
took action upon a motion by Hugh
Sanders and a second from Kenny
Bass to have staff send a letter to the
store owner asking him not to sell the
product in the store.
The board voted unanimously in
support of this action.
David M. Lang, Jr., attorney for the
Town of Bell, was asked if he would
research this K2-Spice product and
provide the board with further in-
formation on the possibility that the
council can have the product banned
from being sold in the Town of Bell. *
The product which is a synthetic
marijuana, is being sold as herbal in-
cense.
In other Bell Town Council news,
the Town of Bell will hold a tentative
budget meeting on Monday, Sept. 12,
to discuss and approve a tentative
financial plan for the 2011-12 fiscal
year.
"The Town of Bell has had a strong
financial year in 2010-2011, and the
municipality has received more reve-
nues than were anticipated, explained


Dan Cavanah, town manager.
Cavanah also said that the State of
Florida reduced funding to the Town
of Bell in 2011-2012, but this will
only result in a $1,085 loss in rev-
enue to the municipality.
Council members were provided
with a proposed budget for the 2011-
12 fiscal year in Thursday's meeting.
The council will review the proposed
budget and take action on the pro-
posed guideline in the September
12 special meeting. A final adoption
hearing will be held in late Septem-
ber.

In Loving Memory


My heart still aches. The emptiness grows bigger all the time. My
'other half' is missing. Life will never be the same. Even after 4
years it is hard to believe you are gone. But you are close in my
heart. I miss you so very much every day. The love and the
memories are here forever. And I long for the day we are together
again.
In loving memory of my husband, the person who made a differ-
ence, who accomplished so much, who touched so many lives and
who was my whole world. Until we meet again...
Your other half,
Deborah

( AARP
Submitted
AARP will hold its regular month-
ly meeting on September'20, 2011,
at 10:30 a.m. at the Lodge of Otter
Springs.
If you missed the last meeting, you
missed some very spirited conversa-
tion as Don Bennick, owner of North
Florida Holsteins, brought us his
views on immigration and the prob-
lems and solutions for our country.
Senator Marco Rubio's Mobile Of-
fice sent two ladies to our meeting and
afterwards went to the Trenton Senior
Center to take questions, comments,
and hopefully, find solutions for any-
one who is having problems.
As far as I know, this is the first
time that Senator Rubio has sent
anyone to Gilchrist County; his local
office is in Jacksonville at phone #
(904) 398-8586.
If you are a member of our local
AARP Chapter and you were not
involved in our Day of Service, you
missed a blessing as well as perform-
ing a great service for the Gilchrist
County Senior Food Pantry. All
totaled the yard sale brought in
$1582.45. This amount will purchase
about 8500 pounds of food to be dis-
tributed in Gilchrist County only.
The September meeting, I am
sure, will be a little calmer since our
speaker will be Leanne Seay from
Barnes Health Care Services. She
will be letting us know about the ser-
vice's that her company has to offer in


Flu Shots

the way of home care.
The Nominating Committee has a
difficult job and you can make it a lot
easier by letting Patsy Avery, Jimmie
Sheffield, or Cindy Slaughter know
that you are willing to hold a position
or work on a committee. The more
people who are involved.in chapter
work, the stronger our chapter be-
comes.
I am sure that with 162 members
at least 20% or about 32 members
should be willing to step up to do
their fair share.
The Hospitality Committee Chair-
lady Faye Sheffield told me that we
will be having pot luck again this
month, so all of you GREAT COOKS,
do your thing and fill those pots with
something good to eat. Last month
we were a little light on drinks, but
everything else was most delicious.
Keep up the good work.
In closing, I would like to thank
all the chapter members who remem-
bered my birthday by bringing in bags
and boxes full of school supplies;
they go a long way in making sure
that each student has a better school
year. For those of you who are not
. aware, again this year the chapter
purchased an extra $150.00 worth of
supplies to be split between Bell and
Trenton Elementary Schools.
See you at the next meeting

Now is the time to


join a 4-H.club


By Chris Decubellis
With September off to a fast start it
is once again time for young people
ages 5-18 to join a local 4-H Club.
Any young person is encouraged to
join a local club regardless of their
race, gender, ethnicity, religion, or
handicap.
Young people work on projects in
their 4-H club which might include
raising an animal, growing a veg-
etable garden, sewing, learning to
4 safely and accurately shoot a firearm,
woodworking, robotics, photogra-
phy, citizenship, fishing, horses, pets,
engineering... in fact there are. over
1.00 project areas youth can choose
from!
Our 4-H members in Gilchrist
County have a LOT of fun and have
really excelled in the last year.
Congratulations to last year's 4-H
members of the year. Our junior 4-
H'er of the year was Bayley Jones of
the Busy Bees 4-H Club, the interme-
diate 4-H'er of the year was Joshua
Akin of the SWAT and Spring Ridge
4-H Clubs, and the senior 4-H'ers of
the year were Chandler Ash of the
SWAT and Flatwoods Friends Clubs
and Nathan Thisse of the Osceola 4-
H Club.


These young people, along with
many other 4-H'ers were recognized
at the annual awards banquet in Au-
gust.
We are looking forward to an-
other successful year in 2011-12 in
Gilchrist County 4-H.
If you would like to join a local
club, or are just curious and would
like more information, please call
Chris DeCubellis, county 4-H exten-

Wilderness Series 8
"Only be carefid and watch your-
selves closely so that you do not for-
get the things yotir eyes have seen or
let them slip from your heart as long
as you live." (Deut. 4:9)
Today will be a bittersweet stop in
our wilderness journey. While the
Israelites are in anticipation of leav-
ing the wilderness, no doubt they also
remember all those who have fallen
in the desert. In addition, Moses now
faces his own death and handing over
the reins of leadership to Joshua.
What an emotional time this must
have been for Moses... the people
that he has spent the last forty years
caring for and leading now must go
on without him.
Before his death, recorded in Deu-
teronomy chapter 34, Moses spends
the first thirty-three chapters giv-
ing final words and last instructions.
Wouldn't we do the same? Often life
doesn't afford us the opportunity to
pass on those last words, so let's take
a moment right now and think about
what you would say to those you
love. What would top your list.. .the
importance .of education, financial
wisdom, or protecting the family
name? Surely we want them to learn
from our mistakes and not repeat
them.. .as well as enjoy our formulas
for success.
As I experienced milestones, in my
children's life, I have often expressed
gratitude to God for being able to
share those precious moments with
them. How would I sum up what I
would want to say to prepare them
for life if I were not present? Moses'
address reminds the Israelites of all
they have seen and heard with their
own eyes and ears, and he charged
them to "watch themselves carefully"
so they would not forget. They had
experienced God's presence through
the wilderness in one situation after
another.
Our final words to our loved ones
would surely be the same, not a series
of new thoughts or instructions, but a
reminder of all we learned along the
way. Notice how obedience to God
is the summary and priority of every
word Moses imparts:
"Hear now, 0 Israel, the decrees
and laws I am about to teach you.
Follow them so that you may live and
may go in and take'possession of the
land that the Lord, the God of your
fathers is giving you. Do not add to
what I command you and do not sub-


tract from it, but keep the commands
of the Lord your God that I give you."
(Deut. 4:1-2)
Once we have decided what our
last words would be to those we
love, shouldn't we get busy living as
if we mean them? Authenticity de-
mands that we live out what we say
we believe or they become empty
words, words not taken seriously by
those who know us. If we are going
to "talk it," by all means, let's "walk
it"...because every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, September 1, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Our days are get-
ting so busy so we know .that the fall
of the year isn't so far away. Our
Northern Quilters will be back with
us soon.
'Goldie McHenry is at Hospice and
we visited with her. So far she is do-
ing well. Our prayers are with so
many now and more are being added
to the list to be remembered.
We have our 28th Quilt Show no-
tices and will be letting everyone
know more details. It seems impos-
sible to be doing this for so many
years. Where have the years gone

and yet we remember every one and
where they were held. We had the
13th here at the Museum in 1996
when the building was a long- way
from being finished.
Greg and six young men were
out Tuesday. They do so much and
we appreciate everything they do.
Thanks, Lancaster.
Thursday lunch was dessert day
and all of it was so good. We had
cheese and macaroni, greens, squash,
potatoes, pea salad, tossed salad, a
big chocolate pecan cake, pear pie,
pear cobbler, cookies, banana nut
bread, coconut cake, brownies, choc-
olate cookies and much more.
