a November 7 deadline approaching,
the Gilchrist County Commissioners
are in the process of selecting their
top five candidates.
Applicants had until Friday, Oct. 21
to submit their applications to Florida
Crown Workforce for the county ad-
ministrator position, which was for-
merly held by Ron McQueen. Of the
22 applicants, nine are residents of
Gilchrist County.
According to Julee Brideson, ad-
ministrative assistant in the county
administrator's office, the applica-
tions have been turned over to four
of the five Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners for their review.
County Commissioners Tommy


Langford, Sharon Langford, Ken-
rick Thomas, and D. Ray Harrison,
Jr. will present their top five choices
in descending order to County Clerk
Joe Gilliam and County Attorney
John McPherson at the November 7
county commission meeting. Randy
Durden, chairman of the Gilchrist
County Commissioners, has applied
for the county administrator's posi-
tion; therefore, he will not take part
in the selection process.
The 22 who applied for the posi-
tion come from as close as County
Road 307 and as far away as Colora-
do. The candidates bring with them a
vast array of work experience, educa-
tion and knowledge'of what it takes
to manage a county.
Applicants for the county admin-
istrator position are: Rhonda Adkins

Sunny Gray and Jacob Turn-
er were crowned Trenton High
School's 2011 homecoming queen
and king as the Tigers rolled over
the P.K. Yonge Blue Wave in a 47-7
victory Friday night.
Friday night's festivities capped
off a successful week of home-
coming festivities in keeping with
this year's homecoming theme,
"Homecoming Around the World."
Students highlighted various coun-
tries throughout the week by dress-
ing up for spirit days Monday
through Thursday. On Monday
students dressed as wacky tacky
tourists, then on Tuesday students
arrived at school wearing neon
colors in celebration of airport se-
curity day. Wednesday was grade
level theme day and Thursday was
orange crush day where students
sported their Tiger colors.
Due to a teacher worker day on
Friday, the annual homecoming
parade was held on Thursday af-
ternoon. Just after 2 p.m. colorful
floats and waving attendants rid-
ing atop flashy cars strolled down
Main Street offering big smiles and
handfuls of candy.
Students spent countless hours
decorating floats for the annual
parade, which spotlighted vari-
ous countries from throughout the
world. First place went to the se-
nior class with their Australia float.
The junior class took second place

ty administrator would also oversee

employees.
"The County Commission is seek-
ing a proven, dedicated, innovative
and experienced individual for the
new county administrator," the ad-
vertisement stated.
Starting salary for the position will
range from $75,000 to $100,000, de-
pending on experience and qualifica-


tions with health insurance and other
benefits provided.
The county commissioners are
expected to narrow the field to their
three top candidates on November
16. At that meeting, Brideson indi-
cated that each of the four commis-
sioners would be given an opportu-
nity to select a wild card applicant, so
there could potentially be seven top
candidates that will be interviewed
for the position beginning in early
December.


Jacob Turner was crowned 2011 homecoming king by 2010 king O.J.
George.


On Thursday night fans flocked to
the football field for Tiger Growl to
see who would be crowned Trenton
High School's 2011 homecoming
king. Tiger fans were also treated to a
number of hilarious skits performed
by the student body. The junior class
won first place in the skit competition
with their rendition of Forrest Gump.
Second place went to the senior class


and third place was the 9th grade
class.

"I could not have asked for any-
thing more" said Charlie Perez,
President of the Gilchrist County
Tea Party. The meeting was packed
and the energy and enthusiasm was
high and terrific.
Those comments came after
the first meeting of the Gildhrist
County Tea Party. They met at the
Trenton Community Center Tues-
day, October 18, for their first orga-
nized meeting of the newly formed
group.
"I was told that if the public starts
to arrive early, that would be one of
the signs indicating lots of interest
and gusto," said Perez. Well, by
6:30 p.m. people were already ar-
riving and by 7 p.m. the center was
full.
Steve Millard, Vice-President,
tried to greet everyone at the door
and welcome each individual, but
they were coming in so fast it cre-
ated a bottleneck. There was a lot
of interest at the information table
where pamphlets, books and copies
of the Constitution were available.
The new Gilchrist County Tea Party
t-shirt was a big hit.


The evening began with a welcome
from Charlie Perez and an explana-
tion of how the group was formed.
Then the President of the Gaines-
ville Tea Party, Laurie Newsom, and
Vice President Rod Gonzalez, both
explained why it is so necessary to
become involved in your community
affairs and understand what's hap-
pening in this Country. Steve thanked
everyone for coming and said that
we can have a voice in the direc-
tion of our County, State and Federal
Government. Tea Parties around the
country are making people aware
and educating the public, so better
and more informed decisions can be
made by the citizens.
Thomas Hayes Morrison from the
Star 99.5 stressed the need for each
and every one to stay informed. He
talked about how he became a very
conservative talk show host and his
transition from liberal to conserva-
tive individual. Mr. Morrison has an
extensive background in financing
and graduated from Harvard with an
excellent understanding of business
and politics.
Without a doubt, the hit of the
night was KrisAnne Hall, a con-


stitutional attorney, who .speaks
around the U.S. on the facts of the
Constitution, how it came to be our
foundation for the Republic and its
meaning. All during the presenta-
tion, you could see the intensity and
interest in the subject. People really
"got into her message" said Perez;
she was great and we plan to invite
her back. Next week she leaves for
a speaking tour through the State of
Texas.
The next meeting, November 15,
should be equally interesting Perez
said. We will have Jay Anderson,
a Gilchrist County resident by the
way, from the SKY, WSKY, 97.3 as
one of the speakers. He promises
that his presentation will open some
"eyes" and educate. The keynote
speaker is Ron Maiellaro from the
Florida Fair Tax Education Associ-
ation. Many people are not sure of
the Fair Tax proposal and its impact
on our Country; Ron will address
the issues and have a question and
answer session at the end of the pre-
sentation. Perez said he's working
on bringing all the candidates for
the U.S. Senate to Gilchrist, and has
three of them already scheduled.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Now at-d 7hen
By Carrie A. Mizell

. .L ...


I 1 I* 1


i-e Aii itt fi+l


It's official, I've been living under
a rock.
Not only do I not have a Facebook
account, but up until recently 1 had
never heard of the oh so popular
game, Angry Birds.
The funny thing is my 2-year-old
nephew Gus not only can play the
game on his month and dad's cell
phones, but he can also tell me, in
detail, about shooting the birds with
a slingshot. When he first told me all
about it, I thought, what in the world
is he talking about?!
Come to find out Gus has it all
figured out; it's "Aunt KiKi" who's
clueless.
Please understand, I didn't upgrade
to a smart phone until a month ago,
and only then because my old, reli-
able flip phone with no clever gad-
gets or Internet access broke in half,
literally. Let's face it, I am a creature
of habit, who much prefers a hand-
written note to an e-mail.
Maybe that's why my feathers got
a little ruffled recently when I heard
that teachers in Levy County public
schools are no longer required to
teach third grade students to write in
cursive. Turns out, it's optional over
there.
I immediately picked up the Jour-
nal phone and called Wendy O'Steen,
director of elementary education for
the Gilchrist County School District,
and said, "Wendy, please tell me
Gilchrist County teachers are still
teaching cursive." Thank the Lord, it
is not a lost art in Trenton and Bell
schools.
According to Wendy, second grade
students get a basic knowledge of
cursive writing before moving on to
third grade where they are taught the
fluidity cursive writing allows.
I will never forget my own third
grade teacher at Trenton Elementary
School, Mrs. Judy Swendsen, teach-
ing me to write my name in cursive.
It was a huge accomplishment back
then.
Twenty-one years later I can still
recall spending quite a bit of time
practicing the C for Carrie. Oh, the


h--N


dips and swirls one 8-year-old can
put in writing the letter C.
It saddens my heart to say that
school district officials in Levy
County are not alone in their decision
to abandon cursive writing. Thanks to
the prevalence of technology, schools
throughout the country are rethinking
teaching kids how to write in cur-
sive. In 44 states, including Florida,
teaching cursive handwriting is now
optional. Citing the Common Core
Curriculum, the states of Indiana and
Hawaii have chosen to stop teaching
cursive in schools, in favor of giving
students more time to learn digital
skills.
Despite the growing popularity of
the Common Core Curriculum, some
experts warn that there will be nega-
tive effects of not teaching cursive in
school.
Dr. Karin James, an assistant pro-
fessor at Indiana University working
in the Department of Psychology and
Braip Sciences, stated, "The ben-
efits of gripping and moving a pen
or pencil reach beyond communica-
tion. Emerging research shows that
handwriting increases brain activity,
hones fine motor skills and can pre-
dict a child's academic success in
ways that keyboarding can't."
When asked by the Today Show
if teaching cursive is a waste of pre-
cious school time or is still an impor-
tant skill to have, 88 percent of the
7,265 people polled said that schools
should not stop teaching cursive.
I can't help but think, what's the
point of taking safety patrol students
to Washington D.C. each year if the
students visit the National Archives
to see the Declaration of Indepen-
dence, but they can't read Thomas
Jefferson's elegant cursive writing.
So much for "We hold these truths to
be self-evident, that all men are cre-
ated equal, that they are endowed by
their Creator with certain unalienable
Rights, that among those are Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happi-
ness."
It is 2011, so I guess the students
can always Google it...

Are There More Books Of The Bible?
(Kent Heaton)


The question of the authenticity of the Bible is
challenged by the existence of other books that seem to
have a flavor for Holy writ. There are the Apocrypha
books written during the years separated by the Old and
New Testament. Some of the books include the books of
Maccabees, Tobit, Judith, Susanna and others. Through
the years other books surface that create an interest in
whether the sixty-six books of the Bible (as we have them
divided) are complete and why others books are not
included. As with the Apocrypha books these are not
considered canonical or belonging to the canon for a
number of reasons. The Jews were the keepers of the
Hebrew scriptures or "oracles of God" (Romans 3:2) and
never accepted them as part of the book of scripture. The
New Testament was established as canon by textual
scholars who followed the same pattern of establishing
which books were canonical.
Returning to the question of whether vital information
is being excluded by the absence of the Old Testament
and New Testament apocrypha books, should these books
be considered part of scripture? When these "missing
books" of the Bible gain a following renewed interest in
their stories and teachings create more of a curiosity than
the very obvious question about the Bible. Should we
take a book (for example) like the Book of Enoch and
question if the Bible is all we need in the absence of this
book? Could it be safe to say the critics of the Bible who
desire inclusion of these other books have investigated
the sixty-six books of the Bible and found lacking what
they need to know about God's will? The curious crowds
who intently read and study the apocrypha books must be
asked if they have intently read and studied the Bible with
the same veracity. If after a complete examination of the
books Genesis through Revelation there are questions of

Ameris Bank: 'Helping Fight Hunger'


food drive
Submitted
As we approach the last week in
October, there is one week left to
donate non-perishable food items
throughAmeris Bank's annual "Help-
ing Fight Hunger" initiative.
.'Ameris Bank:Helping Fight Hun-
ger' is a company-wide service proj-
ect uniting all banking locations,
support departments, community
boards, and members of our commu-
nity to one common cause--to collect
50,000 non-perishable food items
from October 1-31. At the end of Oc-
tober, Ameris Bancorp will match the
number of items collected. With the
support of this match, it is our goal to
donate over 100,000 non-perishable
food items to local food banks across
our 4-state footprint. A food bank
in every town with an Ameris Bank
location will receive the donation of
goods collected at the local Ameris
Bank office.
Thus far over 113 items have been
collected in Newberry and Trenton
and will be delivered to Senior Citi-
zen Food Pantry. Company-wide,
over 44,300 non perishable food
items have been collected.


incomplete knowledge; who is to blame for such results?
The Bible claims itself to be complete. When men
question the fullness of God's message in the Bible in
seeking other books they deny Genesis 1 and the power
of God. The question is often asked, "How can we know
we have all the books of the Bible? That is suggesting
God cannot create, the world in tsix days. If the Lord
cannot give mankind what needs to be known in a book
secured through the centuries of time as complete then the
Lord cannot say, "Let there be light" and therebe light.
Would not the creation of the world be a more 'powerful'
event than keeping a book secure through time? -
Peter writes to the early Christians and gives them
assurance the word of God is complete. "As His divine
power has given to us all things that pertain to life and
godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us
by glory and virtue" (2 Peter 1:3). Jesus told His
disciples, "When He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He
will guide you into all truth" (John 16:13; see also
14:26). Paul declared, "All Scripture is given by
inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for
reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,
that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly
equipped for every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17).
What more can there be than "God was manifested in the
flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen by angels, preached
among the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received
up in glory" (1 Timothy 3:16).
If the Bible is not complete then God is a liar and Jesus
is a fraud. The Bible is given by the providential wisdom
of God for all truth. Anything beyond that is false
(Revelation 22:18-19). Salvation is found in one book
alone the Bible!

Market President Micheal McEl-
roy stated, "We have collected so
many non-perishable food items thus
far, but we can never collect and do-
nate too much. We continue toen-
courage members of our community
to stop by an Ameris Bank location
to donate. We thank the members of
our community for their donations
and their support."
Each Ameris Bank location is a
drop-off site for the donation of non-
perishable food items. Addition-
ally, Helping Fight Hunger collection
boxes are also located at local busi-
nesses who have agreed to partner in
the cause. Ameris Bank encourages
employees, customers, and members
of the community to donate by drop-
ping off non-perishable food items in
the collection box located inside ev-
ery Ameris Bank location and at part-
nering businesses. In Newberry and
Trenton, items can be donated at the
following Ameris Bank locations:

berry

Observations from the
Halfway House
Well they're aet itagain. A new
bunch of prospective office holders
are trying to find ways to cut the defi-
cit. The biggest target as usual is the
middle class. They are the ones who
are the most vulnerable and the larg-
est target in sight. They are also the
ones who are paying the most taxes.
Let's be realistic for a change. The
sure way of how to become a million-
aire is to run for congress. Here are
some of the perks they get.
President--$ 180,000.00 for life
House and Senate--
$174,000.00 for life.
Speaker of the House--
$223,500.00 for life.
Majority-minority leaders--
$193,000.00 for life.
Supreme Couit Justices--
$222,500.00 for life.
This does not include those who
have been imprisoned for theft or ly-
ing to Congress, who will get their
salaries sent to them in prison, to ease
their stay in a country club environ-
ment.
The average teacher salary $40,040
per year and soldiers deployed to Af-
ghanstan is $38,000.00.A member of
Congress gets his social security and
cost of living adjustments every year.
They get free medical care in the best
facilities in the country at taxpayers'
expense.
Now some people are talking of
a third party. We don't need a third
party. What we need to do is to clean
up or out the ones we already have.
It's time to forget party lines and try
being Americans. Look for and sup-
port statesmen, not politicians, and
demand integrity of the Supreme
Court. Have them take a hard look
at the first amendment. That amend-
ment insures the right of anyone to lie
with impunity. Remember Iraq and
the search for weapons of mass de-
structioli that were not in existence.
That brought on a war that was dev-
astating not only-to our economy but
caused the death of hundreds of our
young men and women. Even after
the Secretary of State admitted to
lying on national television, there
has not been anything done about it.
Those people are still drawing their
salaries.


Today we have a president who
must negotiate any plans for balanc-
ing the budget. He should take the
lead in focusing the eyes of the world
on those who refuse to pay their share
of the taxes. Wake up, Obama, and
do a little house cleaning up there.
One candidate, while governor of
his state, forced girls twelve years
old to take shots to prevent sexually
transmitted diseases. Another wants
to repeal the social security system.
Today the income from the social
security system tax is being used to
prevent a worse deficit.
There is an old adage "If it ain't
broke, don't fix it."

Mike Edwards Update-
Dear Editor,
For those that may not know,
Trenton's former police chief, Mike
Edwards, has suffered a heart-at-
tack recently, and we thought that
the Journal would be'a good place
to share this news for the area. Cur-
rently, Mike is under constant care at
Shands Hospital, with the continu-
ing vigilance provided by his two
daughters, Frances and Rita, but I
feel certain that everyone's collec-
tive thoughts and prayers for him
will lead to his speedy recovery. Feel
free to send him a card of support
to: Mike Edwards, Shands. Hospital,
Room 5415, 1600 SW Archer Road,
Gainesville, FL 32610.
Jim and I saw Mike last Thurs-
day but did not stay long, as he was
battling pneumonia and breathing
problems. Once he's back on his feet
(literally), I'm sure visitors will be
welcome to help cheer him up. The
Edwards family has been a part of
our community for many years, so
any kind gesture from local friends
here will be greatly appreciated by
them all. A special thank you needs
to go out to Danny Elkins and our
exceptional Gilchrist EMS teams that
brought Mike back to life again.
Now it's our turn to join Mike's
Fan Club and show him the love and
support that will help for his improv-
ing health with each day to come.
Thank you from the Troke family
and all of Mike's family and friends.

COOKING AND


I was surprised and pleased to see
that Gilchrist County residents have a
new opportunity to buy fresh produce
right here at home. I know many of
the Journal readers try to shop at
home as much as possible. Hopefully
we will keep most of our local busi-
nesses up and running by supporting
them.
Several weeks ago Duane and
Leslie Stephens opened the Cracker
Shack Produce, LLC 6n Main Street
in Trenton. The business is located at
408 North Main Street in the build-
ing that was once the old Post Of-
fice. The Stephenses are Gilchrist
residents who are trying to grow their
new business.
Last week they had some wonder-
ful tomatoes and cucumbers as well
as a lot of other fruits and vegetables.
They also stock as many local vege-
tables as they can find including local
grown sweet potatoes and peppers.
At this time they are looking for
someone to supply local grown
greens, and they said they would be
glad to talk with any local growers
about selling their produce. If you
would like to contact them, their
number is 463-3007.
Speaking of vegetables, the fol-
lowing recipe came from momma's
kitchen. She made it using seasoned
stuffing mix and decided the sage
was a little strong. She suggested
that I make my own stuffing mix of
sorts by tearing up bread and toasting
it. When making this recipe I used
about 1/3 of a loaf of whole wheat
bread to make my bread cubes; white
bread would do just as well. If you
wanted more of a dressing type taste,
you could always add about 1/4 tea-
spoon of poultry seasoning.

The old adage that opportunity
knocks is evident for our 4-H mem-
bers in Gilchrist County. Young
people can take advantage of a world
of opportunity, from participating on
a judging team to attending a leader-
ship training. Our 4-H member of
the week seeks out opportunities and
maximizes them to her advantage to
help prepare her for a bright future.
Kailey Roux is a member of the San-
ta Fe 4-H Club, the Bell SWAT 4-H
Club and she is a student at Bell High
School. Kailey goes out of her way to
find opportunities in 4-H and in other
aspects of her life to enhance her life
skills and to make her the well round-
ed individual that she is. After she
makes up her mind to tackle some-
thing, Kailey's hard work and talent
leads to her success in wherever she
puts her efforts.

tests this year in Tallahassee. Kai-
ley works hard in 4-H as she does in
her other pursuits, but she also takes
time to give back to her community
through such activities as Toys for
Tots, organizing an annual food drive
for her 4-H club, and participating
in the Gilchrist County Educational
Foundation Walk-A-Thon. Kailey is
an excellent student but she is also
a down-to-earth country girl who
loves hunting, fishing, riding horses
and living on a farm. She is a natural

What a rewarding experience for
the Purple Powerhouse Band at the
Williston MPA held on October 22,
2011. The band earned a Superior in
Marching. A Superior score was also
earned by the Drumline and the Aux-
iliary team. The Bell parents gave a
great turnout of support. A standing
ovation was received by the band
at the end of the performance with
several bands matching the support.
These scores have helped earn the
Bell High School Marching Band an
opportunity to compete at the state
level. .While we are elated with their
achievement, after much support and
deliberation from Principal Reed,
booster parents, students, and our
band director, the decision has been
made that the. Purple Powerhouse
Band will not compete at the state
level this year. There were many fac-
tors taken into consideration to reach
this difficult decision. Special thanks
to Principal Reed who was willing to
make it possible to allow the band to
participate on the state level. You can

Memory Walk to end


Alzheimer's
Submitted
Ayers Partners have been support-
ing the Memory Walk in Gainesville
for many years. Often individual or-
ganizations support a charity that is
close to their heart and this is the one
that touches ours. We see so many
people each year that are affected by
this disease in some way. The Mem-
ory Walk raises funds to support our


local community with many different
types of services including support
groups and education. Each year we
get involved to help in fundraising
and also to raise the awareness of
how severe this disease can be and
how it impacts the entire family. This
year our logo was to Walk to End Al-
zheimer's which is a great goal!

Santa Fe 4-H news
Santa Fe 4-H has started a new and
exciting year. A combined meeting
was held for September and October
with a family cook out. All families
enjoyed a delicious meal and an eve-
ning of fellowship.
Business began with the discussion
of projects for the upcoming year.
Our main focus for the year will be
community service and education.
Our first project for the year will
consist of our upcoming food drive.
Other business included enrollment
forms, the upcoming North Florida
Fair, and the Suwannee River Fair.
Guest speaker for the evening was
Mr. Robert. He gave a presentation
on what his job consists of as a law
enforcement officer. On the edu-
cational aspect, he talked about the
pressures in our society today with
alcohol and drug use. He also pre-
sented the laws on seat belt use, and
its importance for all ages. After the
presentation, he was available for
questions.
After the presentation, everyone
completed enrollment forms and
entry forms for the North Florida
Fair. Officers for the new year were
presented: Kailey Roux--President,
Bailey Roux--Vice President and
Council Delegate, Faith Rankin--
Secretary, Colby Trail--Reporter, Re-
ese Rankin--Treasurer, Rhett Rankin-
-Chaplain, Corey Trail-Historian and

Then the fun began with creating
our scarecrow for the annual 4-H
scarecrow contest. A scarecrow that
is fishing for a great year was created
and put on display as a part of Na-
tional 4-H Week. The meeting was
adjourned upon completion of the
scarecrow. See you next month.

"Homec'oming Around t Wo rld" at Treton High School



;: Tigers dominate Blue Wave 47-7


The senior class placed first in the float contest with their Australia float.


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton High School campus
was exploding with excitement Fri-
day night as a standing room only
crowd attended the pre-game festivi-
ties awaiting the (6-0) Tigers to enter
the field through the smoke filled tun-
nel, as a special pre-game ceremony
with over 30 Tiger football alumni
standing in facing lines awaiting the
Tigers' entrance onto the field. There
were Tigers from the 1950 football
team, Roosevelt Stalvey; 1966 foot-
ball team, Howell Lancaster, Jr. and
Grady Jones; 1967, Louie Ridge-
way; 1972, Gary Brown; 1973, Duke
Lang; and many other former Tiger
players. When the Tigers stormed out
of the tunnel, they were excited to
take on a (3-4) P.K. Yonge squad that
was ill prepared for this four-quarter
encounter.
The Tigers' offense wasted little
time as they pounded the Blue Wave
defense for over 600 rushing yards as
they flattened the Wave in the 47-7
victory. Trenton quarterback Jona-
than Smith led the Tiger offense as
Leondre Mathis and Cedric Stokes
combined in the first offensive pos-
session of the game. Mathis picked
up 16 yards as he busted through the
defense to put the Tigers at 1st and
goal on the 6-yard line. Cedric Stokes
scored for the Tigers as he blasted
through the defense and into the end
zone standing up with 7:44 remain-
ing in the first period. Stokes added
the extra point kick to get the scoring
underway. With just over a minute
left in the first period, Stokes dashed
32 yards to the PK 6 to set up another
score. Leondre Mathis waltzed into


the end zone behind the Tigers' of-
fensive line that proved to over power
the Blue Wave's defensive front. The
Tigers quickly grasped a 13-0 lead
into the second period.
In the second quarter the Tigers'
defense had begun to take its toll on
the PK offense. The Tigers had con-
tinued to force a 3 and out and the
PK offense had become ineffective.
The Tigers' offense had begun to run
wild through the PK defense. Bran-
don Stone in the opening minutes of
the second period ran through PK
defenders to set up another score.
With 9:56 remaining in the half,
Stone slipped away from the defense
on a 30-yard sprint for a Tiger score.
Stokes added the extra point kick to
give the Tigers a 21-0 edge. The Ti-
gers had now begun to score in rhyme
as Stokes picked up another score on
an 8-yard run. Stokes' kick gave the
Tigers a 28-0 lead. With the first half
winding down, the Tigers' defense
stayed on the edge. Trenton's Jacob
Turner, the Homecoming king, ran
down a PK running back for a 5-yard
sack. In the same sequence of downs,
Colton Duqutte also recorded a sack
for the Tigers. The hungry defense
again forced a PK punt. The Tigers
setup their offense on their 20-yard
line. The Tigers #12 Michael Smith,
the former JV starting quarterback,
got the call to run the offense. With
the Tigers' front line continuing to
knock the Blue Wave front off the
ball, Smith called on Stokes, and the
junior running back broke loose on
an 80-yard sprint for a Tiger score.
The Tigers held a 34-0 lead at inter-
mission.


The second half continued as the
Tigers' defense stalled the Blue Wave
first offensive possession. The Tigers
took the punt and set up on their 18-
yard line. Trentons' offense contin-
ued to gain large tracts of real estate
each time Stone and Stokes got the
ball. Stone facing a ist and goal from
the 7-yard line, put the Tigers up by
40-0 with less than 7 minutes remain-
ing in the third period. Stokes added
the PAT kick to give the Tigers a 41-0
lead.
Trenton coach Andrew Thomas
called the Tigers to the sideline fol-
lowing the score. He then put the
Tiger starters on the sideline and the
young stars of tomorrow took the
field. The fans continued to supports
their Tigers as the Blue Wave starters
were still struggling to score.
In the final period, Trenton's Kenny
Deen scored on a 5-yard run to give
the Tigers a 47-0 lead. With the game
in the final minute PK's quarterback
dashed 82 yards for a score to keep
the Gainesville school from being
shutout. An extra point kick gave the
Blue Wave a 47-7 score.
Stokes picked up 259 rushing yards
on 22 carries and 4 tackles in this
game. Brandon Stone added 81 yards
and totaled 4 tackles. Hunter Parrish
had 79 yards on 3 carries and added 6
total tackles in the homecoming vic-
tory.
The Tigers will begin their Dis-
trict 6-1A march Friday night on the
road in Hilliard. The Flashes (2-1) in
District play will be out to knock off
the Tigers as they share the District
lead with Hawthorne. This game will
kickoff at 7:30 p.m.


Second place in the homecoming float contest was awarded to the junior class for their America float.


Emma Kate Redd posed as Forrest Gump during the junior class skit, performed at Tiger Growl on Thurs-
day night. The junior class won first place in the skit competition.


The 5th grade float, which represented China, placed third in the homecoming float contest.


Members of the TES Safety Patrol were honored to participate in the
THS Homecoming Parade.
