Judge Ed Philman to retire


It has been an honor -and privi-
lege to have served as your Gilchrist
County Court Judge since January,
1989. I have always done my best to
give each case personal consideration
and be fair and impartial.
In my only contested election, the
Gilchrist County voters re-elected
me to this current term of office. I
will always remember and appreciate
the support and kindness shown to
me both during the election and dur-
ing the 23 years I have served as your
County Judge. As much as I enjoy
my work, I will not be seeking re-
electiori, and my last day in office will
be December 31, 2012. Thank you
friends, supporters and family for al-
lowing me to serve Gilchrist County
in the position of County Court Judge
and for the faith you have had in me.

Kevin Griffin was recently awarded a $10,000 check for three years of
outstanding service.


By Carrie A. Mizell
Once you get past the odor of aged
trash, driving a massive garbage
truck through the streets of Trenton
isn't a bad job.
Just ask Kevin Griffin.
The 34-year-old Old Town man
said his job has many benefits, the
least of which include homemade
baked goods and bottled water from
caring customers along his route.
"We take care of them [the cus-
tomers], so they're good to us!" Grif-
fin said.
Recently, Griffin found out he
would be the recipient of a new job
perk, which came with a $10,000
check. Waste Pro recognized Griffin
for three years of outstanding service

to customers.
According to Ken Rees, Waste Pro
division manager, Griffin has missed
just three days of work during his
three years and three months with
the company. He has also never had
an accident, a workers comp claim,
a driver-related breakdown or a cus-
tomer complaint.
Griffin's outstanding work led
Waste Pro, which serves thousands of
customers throughout the Southeast,
to award Griffin a $10,000 check in
recognition for a job well done.
"I was really excited when I found
out I was getting recognized," Griffin
said. "The fact that I am the first one
in our five-county division to get the
award makes it even more special."
The Waste Pro driver said he gets
up at 4:30 a.m. on weekdays and re-
ports to work at Waste Pro shop in
Fanning Springs by 5:30 a.m. By 6
a.m. he's on the road, serving cus-
tomers in High Springs, Bell and
Trenton.
"The quicker we get the garbage
up the quicker we get to go home,'
Griffin explained. "It's not a bad job.
There is a lot of physical work, but
it's a. good job...sometimes you just
have to hold your breath!"
In the past, Griffin has worked for a
fencing company and a beer distribu-
tor before joining the Waste Pro team
after moving to Dixie County a little
over three years ago with his father.
Griffin plans to spend some of the
$10,000 he received fixing up a 1982
Ford his dad bought new and drove
for many years before passing on to
his son.
"I'm planning to fix up the Ford,"
Griffin said. "The rest of the money
will go in the bank."


ber and customer services and system
control.
A larger, more customer friendly
lobby area with four payment win-
dows, more .parking spaces and a
two-lane drive thru will provide
members with better customer ser-
vice. The building will be compliant
with the American Disabilities Act,
and system control will be located in


a secure section of the building able
to withstand up to 160 miles per lour
winds and operate from a backup
generator.
The local general contractor is
Gray Construction Services, Inc., and
local subcontractors will be used as
well. Completion of the building is
expected in late summer 2012.


$1 million

winning scratch

off ticket sold in

Trenton
By Carrie A. Mizell
A Georgia man was on his way to
Tallahassee earlier this week to turn
in a winning $1 million scratch off
ticket he bought in Trenton on Fri-
day.
Karl Krattinger reportedly bought
a winning $10 Monopoly scratch off
ticket at the Smoker's Express con-
venience store on Friday morning.
Krattinger was in Gilchrist County
having his Mosquito helicopter re-
paired at Composite FX, explained
Dwight Junkin, owner of Composite
FX.
"When he came back in here, he
was shaking so bad and asked me
to check the numbers behind him,"
Junkin said on Monday.
On Monday, Krattinger traveled
to the state capital to have his ticket
validated and collect his winnings,
Junkin explained.
"This couldn't have happened to a
ntcer guy!" Junkin said.
Store clerks said that Krattinger's
ticket is the largest winning ticket the
Smoker's Express has ever sold.

Mobile Food

Pantry returns

September 20
By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County senior residents
will once again have the opportunity
to get free food as the Senior Citizens'
Food Pantry's mobile food giveaway
hits the streets this fall.
Lack of funding prompted the
Senior Citizens' Food Pantry to
change their typical monthly distri-
bution schedule. According to Rick
Weder, pantry director, there will be
no more' distributions for the month
of September, except for a Septem-
ber 20 mobile food giveaway. The
September 20 distribution will be-
gin at 5 p.m. at St. Alban's Church
on US Hwy 19 just south of Fanning
Springs. This giveaway will be open
to all residents of Gilchrist, Dixie and
Levy counties, Weder explained.
The mobile food pantry will be
set up in Bell and Trenton during the
month of October. The first giveaway
will be on Tuesday, Oct. 6, at the Bell
Community Center, beginning at 2
p.m. This visit is sponsored by Bell
Mayor Tommy Brown and family
and is open to all Gilchrist County.
residents. Then on Tuesday, Oct. 11
the mobile food pantry will be at the
Trenton Depot. Distribution will be-
gin at 2 p.m. Sponsorship for this dis-
tribution is still open. '
According. to Weder, during the
month of October, the Senior Citi-
zens' Food Pantry will have mobile
distributions only. There will be no
regular distributions from the Tren-
ton location or the Cruse Center.
A fundraiser to help the Senior
Citizens' Food Pantry will be held
on Saturday, Sept. 24. In conjunc-
tion with a memorial poker run held
in honor of Biker Bob, food pantry
volunteers plan to sell dinners for $5
per plate in the Bear's Den parking
lot in Fanning Springs, beginning at
11 a.m.
"One of Bob's favorite charities
was the Senior Citizens' Food Pan-
try," Weder said.

raiser, call (352) 278-1832. To learn
more on the mobile food pantry dis-
tribution, call the Senior Citizens'

Bell High School .student urges his peers not to smoke


By Carrie A. Mizell
Fifteen-year-old Brandon Den-
ham said he always knew that de-
spite the warning's, he would one
day use drugs or drink alcohol.
"Growing up in Bell, everyone
tries it," Brandon said.
With his parents on their way to
Tennessee for the weekend, Bran-
don agreed when two friends, ages
.15 and 16, asked him to "go smoke"
on Friday, Aug. 26.
"I didn't think. I would get in
trouble, since my parents were
out of town, so I said, 'Why not?"
Brandon recalls.
Within minutes of taking two hits
off a pipe containing K-2 Spice, a
synthetic marijuana marketed as in-
cense, the Bell High School student
fell to the ground and passed out
near the high school football field.
"I don't remember a lot of what
happened after that," Brandon said.
"I. woke up and I was lying in the
shade. A friend of mine took me to
his house where I got a shower."


The friend's mother then reportedly
took Brandon's heart rate, which was
very high at 122 beats per minute.
Gilchrist County EMS was called in
and Brandon was told to rest and stay
hydrated.
"I didn't really know what I was
smoking, they [the"two friends] just
said they bought it at BP," Brandon
said.
The Bell athlete said on Monday
afternoon that he has learned a valu-
able lesson over the last two weeks,
since smoking synthetic marijuana
"I definitely won't do it again,"
Brandon said. "They say it's sup-
posed to relax you, but I had the big-
gest headache afterwvards."
Looking back, Brandon said he
now knows that smoking K-2 Spice
was very dangerous and could have
resulted in death.
"Since I did it, I've had eight or
nine people come up to me at school
and say they almost died from it too,
but they never said aniyhing because
they were scared they would get in

no one else will try it."

friends would describe him as. "ath-
letic and smart...on most things."


County property owner pleads for travel

trailer variance
By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission listened to Mrs. Delores Rain address the board as she begged for a variance
to allow her daughter and family to continue to live in a travel trailer on her property in southeast Gilchrist County.
The property owner had received a letter from Gilchrist County Code Enforcement after the Code officer received a
complaint about the 30x10 travel trailer setup on the property.
Delores Rain explained that members of her family had lost their jobs, had lost their house, and had to move into
this travel trailer on her property. She explained that the travel trailer was setup on a concrete slab where a house was
formerly located.'The unit's waste is running into a septic tank that was used by the old house. "This day and age,
due to the economic times we are living in, my family lost their jobs and they had no other place to go," Mrs. Rain
explained.
The Code Enforcement officer told the Commission that she sent a letter to Mrs. Rain advising her that a Special
Use Permit was needed to allow the travel trailer to be located on her property. Mrs. Rain told the board that an Im-
pact Fee of $.1400 was paid on the property in 2005.
Commission Chairman Randy Durden explained to Mrs. Rain that Gilchrist County is currently working on revis-
ing the travel trailer ordinance. The Commission advised Mrs. Rain that Gilchrist County Code Enforcement will
be communicating with her and advising her of the new guidelines that will affect her property involving the travel
trailer violation. The Commission took no action on the travel trailer violation in this meeting.
Mrs. Rain did explain that a neighboring property owner had an old frame house on his property that farm workers
live in during the season. She explained that the house does not have septic nor other necessary needs. She added
that farm workers are seen by her family members using the bathroom in numerous locations in the trees around the
house.
Mrs. Rain was advised that Gilchrist County Code Enforcement would check on this issue and advise the property
owner of the said violations on the reported site.

County Commission approves tentative budget


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
held a tentative budget hearing on
Thursday, September 8,2011, to con-
sider a proposed budget for the 2011-
2012 fiscal year. The five-member
board on a motion for approval from
Commissioner Sharon Langford and
a second from Commissioner Tommy
Langford approved Resolution 2011-
39 which adopts an operating millage
rate of 8.2695 mills. This is a 4.8%
lower rate than the rolled-back rate of
8.6894 mills. The Commission voted


5-0 in favor of this action.
The Commission also took ac-
tion to approve Resolution 2011-40,
which identified the estimated rev-
enue of $24,067,369. As a part of this
resolution the Commission decided
to provide a 2% salary increase to all
county employees. On a motion by
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas and
a second by Commissioner Tommy
Langford, the board voted 4-1 in fa-
vor bf approving 2011-40. Commis-
sioner D. Ray Harrison, Jr. asked the
clerk if this resolution included the


salary increase for all county em-
ployees. Joe Gilliam, Clerk of Court,
explained that yes this. appropriation
provides the raises to the employees.
Commissioner Harrison voted no on
the resolution that approved the sal-
ary increase. "There are people in our
county that have lost their jobs and
are struggling to make ends meet. I
am not going to approve a resolution
that will only make it harder for them
to get by," Harrison added.

2 Levy County women


die in wreck
By Carrie A. Mizell
A 50-year-old Levy County woman
and her 81-year-old passenger died
on Labor Day after the woman drove
into the path of a flatbed truck.
Gracie Brassfield Parker, 50, of
Bronson was driving north on Coun-
ty Road 323 just before 2 p.m. on La-
bor Day when she made a left turn in
front of a flatbed truck driven by Dar-
ren Aubrey Parks, 24, of Morriston.
Parker's 1991 Dodge Dynasty was
struck on the right side by the flat-
bed truck near the intersection of NE
23rd Place. Upon collision, the flat-
bed truck pushed Parker's car onto


the east shoulder of the road, where it
turned counterclockwise before col-
liding with a fence.
According to Cpl. Leslie Weber
of the Florida Highway Patrol, both
Gracie Parker and her passenger,
Louvina Waters Dallas, 81 of Wil-
liston were pronounced dead at the,
scene by Levy County EMS. Parker
was not wearing a seatbelt at the time
of the accident, but her 81-year-old
passenger reportedly was.
The driver of the flatbed truck in-
curred minor injuries in the accident.
Charges are pending further inves-
tigation.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL

Streetwise
By Lauren Rudd


The primary purpose of this column
is to provide a degree of intelligent
discourse on the subject of investing
on Wall Street, decorated with a bit
of economic analysis and yes, an oc-
casional straying into some of the po-
litical pressures that can play havoc
with even the best of ideas.
To that end I have discussed the
merits of investing in companies
whose primary business model en-
tails delivering up a seemingly never
ending stream of military hardware,
companies such as Oshkosh (OSK),
General Dynamics (GD) and Raythe-
on (RTN). The embodiment of those
companies being to provide a securi-
ty net over the country that hopefully
will protect us from those with com-
bative designs on our freedom.
Overall this has worked quite well.
Yet, as the tragedy of September 11
demonstrated only too vividly, a few
rogue individuals can undo even our
best laid plans. The result was the
death of over 3,000 innocent vic-
tims.
Unfortunately, a desire for revenge,
tainted to a degree by the richness of
Iraq's oil wealth and the potential
earnings that would naturally accrue
to those that feed the war machine,
not to mention a large modicum of
stupidity on the part of Congress,
has resulted in nearly twice again the
number of deaths that occurred on
that fateful day in September.
The number of just American com-
bat casualties in Iraq since March
19, 2003, is 3,529. Interestingly, the
number of combat casualties in Iraq
since Obama took office is 125. And
of course there was no evidence other
than meaningless saber rattling by a
sadistic dictator to indicate that Iraq
was involved.
Recognizing that Afghanistan was
playing a role by sheltering the ilk
of those responsible, we instituted
actions that as of September 6 have
resulted in 1,340 combat deaths, of
which 932 have occurred under the
current administration. The official
out-of-pocket cost of both conflicts
through the 2011 fiscal year is $1.29
trillion dollars, all of which was fund-
ed by deficit spending rather than
revenues. And the economic cost...in
excess of $3 trillion dollars.
Should #we have gone after Osama
bin Laden? Absolutely! Those that
revel in taking innocent lives must
come to realize that justice, while
not always swift, is sure. However,
a more measured technologically
enhanced response may have elimi-
nated much of the collateral damage.
And consider what could have been
accomplished domestically with that
$1.29 trillion, in addition to not sac-
rificing 4,869 American lives. Hope-
fully, they were not sacrificed in
vain.
Dollars flow like water through
Congress to the Pentagon. Mean-
while, many of those in Congress, or
those who yearn to run for Congress,
or who covet the White House, have
advocated abolishing programs such
as Medicare and Medicaid in the
name of fiscal responsibility. Their
idea is to rely on the use of major in-
surance carriers in combination with
some sort of tax credit or voucher
system.
Insurance companies are only in-
terested in the healthy. A 24-year-old
Cincinnati father died from a tooth
infection because he couldn't afford
his medication. When his face started
swelling and his head began to ache,
Kyle Willis went to the emergency
room, where he received prescrip-


tions for antibiotics and pain medica-
tions. Unable to afford both, he chose
the pain medications. The tooth in-
fection spread, causing his brain to
swell. He died Tuesday, August 30.
Social Security surpluses have re-
duced the federal deficit every year
but one. Nonetheless, there ate plans
afoot to replace much of Social Se-
curity with a program whereby you
would invest your contributions, on
Wall Street. From experience I can
assure you that given the public's
average level of investing expertise,
unmitigated disaster would be inevi-
table.
Furthermore, there is no let up
on the seemingly endless torrent of
abuse directed at President Obama.
Unrealistic expectations were that
he would somehow, in the blink of
an eye, magically solve a series of
economic problems that were many
years in the making.
Yes, I understand the frustration. I
have seen it in my students, heard it
from readers and from organizations
at which I am asked to speak. How-
ever, many of those who complain
the loudest would be better served by
expanding their knowledge of basic
Keynesian economics.

Blaming God
(Kent Heaton)


It was a quiet day as the routine of life seemed to
unfold in an endless array of jobs to be finished, plans to
be made and prayers offered for the family. He had much
to be concerned about with his vast herds of camels,
oxen, sheep and donkeys. It took a lot of servants to tend
after his expansive wealth, and their families had to be
cared for as well. His wife had blessed him with seven
sons and three daughters and together, they knitted a
family with prayer. On a regular basis offerings were
made for his sons in case they may have sinned in some
way and cursed God in their hearts. But this day would be
unlike any day he had ever experienced.
As he sat in the cool of the day, four messengers came
running to 'him declaring how the Sabeans killed the
servants tending the donkeys; fire from heaven consumed
all his sheep and those watching them; how the Chaldeans
had raided his land killing the servants and stealing away
the camels and last of all his ten children were dead;
killed by a freak wind that destroyed the house they were
in. How do you digest the loss of your property in one
day? In what way do-you grasp the reality of being left
without the substance of life in your flocks and herds and
servants all wiped out or stolen away in one day? To
add misery to the events unfolding with minutes of one
another, how can a person deal with the loss of a child?
No, not just the loss of one child but ten all at once.
What words can you find to comfort your wife who
suffered the same loss?
"There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was
Job; and that man was blameless and upright, and one
who feared God and shunned evil" (Job 1:1). The
eighteenth book of the Old Testament is one of the oldest
stories in scripture. Set during the days of the Patriarchs,
Job is a man who represents the meaning of suffering and


endurance. He and his wife lost everything they had in a
blink of an eye. It did not come over time. It came at
once, sudden, unexpected and with the full fury of
understandable rage and sorrow. Yet we find in the heart
of this man of God, a heart of understanding.
"Then Job arose, tore his robe, and shaved his head;
and he fell to the ground and worshiped. And he said:
'Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked
shall I return there. The Lord gave, and the Lord has
taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord. 'In all this
Job did not sin nor charge God with wrong" (Job
1:20-22). The rest of the book of Job is remarkable
enough as later God allows Satan to inflict horrible
physical suffering on Job ("In all this Job did not sin
with his lips" Job 2:10). But stop at this point of the
story and ask, "Why did Job not blame God? What kind
of man will continue in the face of such insurmountable
odds to believe in a loving Father? The answer is found in
Job 1:1 Job feared God and he shunned evil.
The focus of Job was not on his own selfish desires
and needs. Did he suffer because of the loss of his
wealth? Yes. Did he mourn greatly for his seven sons and
three daughters? Immensely no doubt. Did he have cause
to blame God? No. He knew that God would not put on
him more than he could bear (1 Corinthians 10:23). Job
understood the power of God in his life (Romans
8:31-39). How can we blame God when God is the one
who wants to comfort us? Job was a pilgrim passing
through life (2 Corinthians 4:16-18) and he knew that
God would not forsake him (Hebrews 13:5-6). Job proves
there is nothing we cannot do with God on our side
(Matthew 19:26). Our victory is not in ourselves but in
the power of God in ourselves (Ephesians 3:20-21).

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


"This world's a wonderful place
t'live in if you want it t'be." Aunt
Arie
This world is a wonderful place,,
and sometimes wonderful things
come to you in a glass jar with holes
in the lid.
For many years I've wanted to
make Sour Dough Bread. Back in
the early 90s, John, my husband,
and I made a trip to Cade's Cove and
spent several days in Townsend, Ten-
nessee. While there we shopped in a
small home owned grocery store. It
was the type store where the owner
knew everyone in town and was just
as friendly as could be. I remember
finding a rack next to the screened
front door holding still warm sour
dough bread baked by a local lady.
We took a chance and bought a loaf.
It was so good that we stopped in and
got another loaf to take home. This
was my first brush with sour dough.
Fast forward ten years or so and I
got my first taste of Evelyn Hudson's
homemade sour dough bread and
knew then that one day I just had to
learn how to make it. Well, Evelyn,
who is a longtime family friend, of-
fered to teach me how; but one thing
led to another and I never made the
time for my sour dough lesson.
Fast forward another ten years to
just a few weeks ago, and I ran intq
my friend Kimberly Quincey Hines
in the Hitchcock store, and she told
me she had some sour dough starter
for me. Kimberly went on and on
about how good it was.
John showed up a few days later
with a recipe in one hand and the jar
of promised starter in the other.
After making a quick trip to the
grocery store for bread flour and po-
tato.flakes, I was set to turn out my
first batch of Sour Dough Bread.
I followed the directions which
were to feed the starter and leave it
out on the counter overnight. The
next morning I removed one cup of
starter to make the bread with and
put the remaining starter back in
the fridge. I mixed up the bread by
Kimberly's recipe and let it rise in
a very large ironware bowl on the
kitchen counter all day. That night it
was time to punch down the dough
and knead it some and divide it into
three loaves and set it on the counter
to rise overnight. The next morning I
baked the bread and law it was some
kinda good.
I'm now wondering why I have not
been making it for years. Leave it to
that spunky Kimberly to give me the
swift kick in the pants I needed. She
is such a go getter; she amazes me
with all the stuff she pulls off. I am so
thrilled and grateful to have this new
hobby of sour dough bread making.
I just love kneading the dough and
watching it rise on the counter. Part
of the appeal is the recipe makes
enough to share. It's the sharing that
Kimberly and I like best.

Kimberly told me that her starter
was handed down from Bertha Hut-
sell of Dandridge, Tennesgee. The
funny thing is Dandridge is not far at
all from Townsend where we ate our
first sour dough bread so many years
ago. Kimberly tells me that Ms. Ber-
tha i's just precious. She also said that
Bertha has kept the starter going for
years, well over twenty years.
Evelyn, Kimberly and I have all
used our sour dough to make cinna-
mon rolls as well as cinnamon raisin
bread. The dough can also be made
with half whole wheat flour and half
bread flour for whole wheat bread.
When we visited Alaska last sum-
mer, we realized that Sour Dough is
huge up there. Nearly every, restau-
rant had Sour Dough on the menu. I
found the following tips on making
Sour Dough Bread in a, cookbook
from Alaska. Sour dough can react
to metal so it is best to avoid metal
utensils and bowls when preparing
the bread. Never store your starter in
a tightly sealed container; it can ex-
plode. If your starter forms a layer of
liquid on top, don't worry. This is
a normal by product of the fermenta-
tion process.
I don't have the starter recipe for
Ms. Bertha's Sour Dough, but I do
have Evelyn Hudson's recipe and she
graciously agreed that I could print it.
Her bread is wonderful, so enjoy.

Answers
By Kay Louder
Social Security District Manager,
Question:
I received a notice from Social Se-
curity recently. It said my name and
Social Security number do not match
Social Security's records. What
should I do?
Answer:
It's critical that your name and
Social Security number, as shown
on your Social Security card, match.
your employer's payroll.records and
your W-2 form. If they don't, here is
what you need to do:
Give your employer the cor-
rect information exactly as shown
on your Social Security card or your
corrected card; or
Contact your local Social Securi-
ty office (www.socialsecurity.gov/lo-
cator) or call 1-800-772-1213 (TTY
1-800-325-0778) if your Social Secu-
rity card does not show your correct
name or Social Security number.
For more information, visit our
website at www.socialsecurity.gov.
Question:
Are Social Security numbers reas-
signed after a person dies?
Answer:
No. We do not reassign Social Se-
curity numbers. In all, we have as-
signed more than 460 million Social
Security numbers, and each year we
assign about 5.5 million new num-
bers. The current system, has enough
new numbers for several more gen-
erations. For more information, visit
our website at www.socialsecurity.
gov or call us toll-free at 1-800-7721
1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778).

cases, you're done. There are no
forms to sign or docfuments to send
in. If we do need more information

visit our website at www.socialsecu-
rity.gov or call us toll-free at 1-800-

Question:
If both my spouse and I are entitled
to Social Security benefits, is there
any reduction in our payments be-
cause we are married?
Answer:
No. We independently calculate
each spouse's Social Security ben-
efit amount. Each spouse receives
a monthly benefit amount based on
his or her own earnings. Couples are
not penalized simply because they
are married. If one member of the
couple earned low wages or did not
earn enough Social Security credits
to be eligible for retirement benefits,
he or she may be eligible to receive
Benefits as a spouse.

Wilderness Series 9
As we near the end of our wilder-
ness journey, it almost seems like we
should be able to look ahead in the
horizon and catch a glimpse of the
Promised Land! Last week, we heard
Moses' last instructions to the people
he led for so long through the desert.
Now only one task remains... Mo-
ses is about to hand over the reins to
Joshua. This is really getting good...
I don't want to miss a word, do you?
"Then Moses summoned Joshua
and said to him in the presence of all,
Israel. "Be strong and courageous,
for you must go with this people into
the land that the Lord swore to their
forefathers to give them, and you
must divide it among them as their
inheritance. The Lord himself goes
before you and will be with you; he
will never leave you nor forsake you.
Do not be afraid; do not. be discour-
aged." (Deuteronomy 31:7-8)
The last word in this verse is "dis-
couraged." Our English usage of this
word is not nearly so 'strong as the
translation from the original Hebrew.
It literally means to be terrified. This
is our first clue that as Moses trans-
fers the responsibility and authority
of leadership to Joshua, he remem-
bers exactly how he felt at the burn-
ing bush some 40 years ago. A quick
look back at Exodus 3:11 recalls his
response to God's call: "Who am I,
that I should go to Pharaoh and bring
the Israelites out of Egypt?" In other
words.. .can't you find someone else?
Oh yes, Moses well remembers that
initial terrifying feeling.
Although we have no record of
Joshua's acceptance speech, I can't
help but wonder what in the world
was going through his mind. I imag-
ine that Joshua is replaying in his
mind the number of times Israel acted
rebelliously against God, not to men-
tion Moses' leadership. The fact that


he and Caleb were the only two left
from the original exodus bore witness
to the unbelief of his people. Joshua
knew first hand that it would take a
strong hand and-a strong heart to lead
this group! What a refreshing change
from politics today that we find no
empty promises from Joshua's head-
quarters... simply a humble accep-
tance of God's call on his life, and a
willingness to serve his people.
We can't leave this scene without
peeking ahead to see what Joshua's
first recorded words are as leader. It
is found in Joshua 1:10. "So Joshua
ordered the officers of the people: Go
through the camp and tell the people,
'Get your supplies ready. Three days
from now you will cross the Jordan
here to go in and take possession of
the land the Lord your God is giving
you'for you own." Here's a leader
who hits the ground running! He is
sure of where is he is going, because
he is going with God. In our own
lives, let's be sure that when we lead,
we are following God, and when we
follow others.. .that they do no less...
because every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie

brance of those who were lost on
September 11, 2001. This past Sun-
day was the 10th year anniversary
of when the four planes were high-
jacked and then crashed into the twin
towers, the Pentagon, and the field in
Pennsylvania. Almost 3,000 people
were lost in this horrific act.
The JROTC continued to educate
the students and community during
the following week with celebrating
Freedom Week. On September 12,
cadets attended the Character Coun-
cil forum and recited a patriotic poem
S and spoke about their mission state-
." ".. ment to become better citizens. Also,
S.- during the week the JROTC kicked
,. off the annual Veterans of Foreign
,.-' Wars essay contest.
In addition, the cadets are also

Adam Sanders to open

Diamond Rio concert at

Florida Gateway


Submitted by Troy Roberts
Florida Gateway College,
Public Inforriation Coordinator
Lake City native and Nashville
recording artist Adam Sanders will
make his return home on September
24th, opening for Diamond Rio at
Florida Gateway College.
The Columbia High School gradu-
ate and former Lake City Commu-
nity College student will perform an
acoustic show at 7 p.m.
"The biggest thing is I'm just hap-
py to be back in Lake City and play-
ing another show," Sanders said. "It's
been a long time since I've been back,
and it's going to be cpol to catch up
with people. It's hard to keep in touch
with everybody back home. We get
to do a little bit over Facebook, but
it'll be fun to have a little downtime
before the show and then catch up af-
terwards.
"It's exciting Diamond Rio has
been around a long time, and they've
had such great success, and I think
it'll be a great show."
Growing up in Lake City, Sand-
ers always took part in local talent
shows, festivals and fairs, but when
he graduated high school, he knew a
career in country music and Nash-
ville was calling, one he couldn't
realize in Lake City.
"I wanted to take that next step,"
he said. "I couldn't really progress as
a performer without taking that next
step. It's kind of like going off to col-
lege to get your degree."
Sanders has been in Nashville for
more than two years now, and said
he's been fortunate to have found the
right mix of musicians to work with.
He believes this will make his forth-
coming EP worth the wait.
And while that EP isn't.set to be re-
leased for another few weeks, Sand-
ers said he knows the perfect place to'
pre-release it.
"The album will be finished this
week, and we're planning on com-
ing back for this show and making it
the official CD release, concert, and


Adam Sanders
showcase all of the new songs off the
album," he said. "Since Lake City is
my hometown, I want to give people
there the first chance to buy the al-
bum."
Tickets for the September 24 Dia-
mond Rio concert are still available
for $15 for FGC students, faculty and
staff and $25 for general admission.
Tickets can be purchased by calling
(386) 754-4340 or by visiting www.
fgcentertainment.com. The show is
sponsored by Shands Lake Shore
Regional Medical Center and CMS
Professional Staffing, Inc.

Roberts at Troy.Roberts@fgc.edu or

FHP participates in
Brake Safety Week

Submitted
Col. David Brierton, director of the
Florida Highway Patrol, announced
that the Patrol will participate in
Brake Safety Week on September
11-17. The special week was orga-
nized by the Commercial Vehicle
Safety Alliance, North America's
leading commercial motor vehicle
safety enforcement organization.
During Brake Safety Week, troop-
ers will conduct commercial vehicle
inspections with an added emphasis
on brake components and provide
educational materials to drivers. In-
spection decals valid for 90 days will
be placed on all vehicles that have no
major violations.
Braking systems on commercial
vehicles have many complicated
parts that require constant inspection
to ensure proper operation. Poorly
adjusted air brakes and brake system
defects are hazards that result in plac-
ing the vehicle out of service. Air
brake issues can reduce the braking
capacity for large vehicles and fur-
ther increase their stopping distance,
which can put everyone on the road
at risk.

Lafayette County defeats Bell in 1A rural division

win of the 2011 regular season.
The Hornets were first to score as
Rodney Brown ran 14-yards for a
touchdown and Arturo Negrete add-
ed the kick for a 7-0. The Bulldogs'
offensive line gave running ,back
Jeremy Zimmerman enough space
for him to slip into the end zone on
a 1-yard run with 2:09 remaining in
the first period. A 2-point conver-
sion was stopped short as the score
changed to 6-7. The Hornets closed
the first period with a score as James
Bass blasted into the end zone on a 1-
yard run and Negrete added the kick.
for a 6-14 edge. In the second period
Mayo's Garrett Debose connected
with Rodney Brown on a 7-yard pass
for a touchdown. With 7:57 remain-
ing in the first half Negrete added the
extra point kick tQ give the Hornets a
6-21 lead. The Bulldogs put together
their own offensive drive as quarter-
back Bruce Thomas led the drive and
capped off the challenge on a 62-yard
pass to James Oslager for the touch-
down. Thomas went right back to Os-
lager on the 2-pt conversion to cut the
edge to 14-21. The Hornets scored on


a 10-yard run by Whiddon and on a
24-yard pass from Debose to Brown
as. Negrete added a PAT kick to close
out the first half 14-34.
The second half was filled with
excitement and scoring as the two
teams were hard pressed for the
win. Mayo's Debose connected with
Bass on a 10-yard scoring strike for
a touchdown with 8:34 remaining in
the period. Negrete split the posts for
a 14-41 lead. The Bulldogs' Austin
Ritchey broke loose on a 54-yard run
for a score. The PAT failed as Bell

ney Brown added runs of 78 and 10
yards respectively for touchdowns.

goal with a 62-0 score.
Top tacklers for the game were
Hunter Parrish with 5 tackles and 2
assisted tackles, Colton Duquette
with 4 tackles and 2 assisted tackles,
and Jonathan Smith .with 4 tackles.
In the receiving end of the game Ce-
dric Stokes had 3 passes and ran for
92 yards. Stokes also kicked for the
Tigers and made 6 out of 7.
After halftime the Tigers pulled
their starters and still continued to
run the score, and also kept the Bucs
from scoring. The team's hitman of
the week is Leandre Mathis. The
Trenton Tigers are 2-0 and they are
coming!
Trenton will be in Jacksonville at
Bishop Snyder on Friday, September
16, at 7 p.m. kickoff.
