By John M. Ayers
The Trenton Tigers celebrated
following the 46-6 chopping of the
Chiefland Indians to remain perfect
in the 2011 regular season. It's been
34 years since the Trenton Tigers
have recorded a perfect 10-0 record.
The 1977 Tigers under Coaches
Leonard Alien and Jim Surrency re-
corded a perfect season with a win
over Bronson. The Tigers went on
to play FAMU in a regional playoff
in Tallahassee losing 27-0. The .1977
Tigers finished a great year with a
11-1 record. A few of the starters on
that team were: guard Wesley Deen,
tackle Valdeen Fletcher, lineback-
er Rex Shearin, linebacker Wayne
Stalvey, running back Steve Henley,
defensive end Todd Troyer, tight
ends Roger Grover and Jerome Perry,
defensive tackle Clayton Harris, run-
ning back Lester McGee, cornerback
George Stapleton and quarterback
John Rutledge. Underclassmen on
this team were Mike Burnett, Her-


man Sanchez, Jr. and Mark Wilson
just to name a few.
The Chiefland Indians had little re-
ststance to the Tigers Friday night as
a freezing evening put the Tigers' of-
fense in a running mood as the Indi-
ans stood in the path of a perfect sea-
son. Trenton notched over 500 yards
of offense as sophomore quarterback
Stephen Smith rushed for four scores
and connected with Brandon Stone
on a 15-yard pass to lead the Tigers in
stride. In the opening minutes of the
second period, Cedric Stokes contin-
ued to run for scores as he notched
his 20th touchdown of the 2011 sea-
son. He came right back as he dashed
through the Indians' defense for a 2-
point conversion and 21-0 lead. With
seconds remaining in the first half,
Smith threw a strike to Stone, and the
senior running back took the Tigers
down inside the Indians' 25 for a first
down. Stokes followed the Tigers'
lead on back to back plays to put the
Tigers on a first and goal from the 1


yard line. The quarterback went in
for the score, and Stokes added the
kick as the Tigers held a 28-0 lead at
intermission.
Trenton High School and hundreds
of fans honored the Veterans attend-
ing the senior night game as they
walked down onto the field during
the ceremony. These Veterans were.
honored during a halftime ceremony
by the playing of Amazing Grace on
a Scottish bagpipe by J. D. Perryman
and a message of thanks for their
service was announced as the fifteen
Veterans stood on the host side fac-
ing the Tiger fans. The Chiefland
High School band under the direction
of Sarah Heaton presented a halftime
performance for the fans attending
the game. The Trenton High School
marching band also presented a half-
time performance with the playing of
their instruments and marching be-
fore a supporting crowds of fans.
In the third period the Tigers' de-
fense rose to the challenge as the In-

on a brilliantly clear, but chilly day.

dians took the opening kickoff and
tried to establish an offensive drive.
The Indians got just inside the Tigers'
territory as they faced a fourth and
13 from their 48-yard line. The Indi-
ans appeared to punt on forth down,
but a fake punt sent the punter up
the Indians' sideline striving for the
first down marker. The Tigers' de-
fense were again on the mark as they
stopped the poorly executed fake for
a 1-yard gain.
The Tigers' offense setup on the
Indians' 49 and was set to go the
distance for another score. Brandon
Stone and Cedric Stokes made quick
work of this drive as they moved
behind a front line that was knock-
ing the Indians off the football. With
6:02 remaining in the third period,
the tempers on the field were begin-
ning to flare as Stone caught the pass
and eased into the end zone as the Ti-
gers expanded their lead' to 34-0. As
the third period was winding down,
the Tigers tacked on another score
when Smith dashed along the Tigers'
sideline for a 40-0 lead. The Tigers
had begun to substitute on both sides
of the football in the final period.
Chiefland's Melvin Adams put the
Indians on the scoreboard on a 5-yard
run. As the Tigers were moving ever
so close to that perfect season, the of-
fense continued to move the ball on
the Indians. Trenton's Kenny Deen
got the handoff with 2:37 left in the
game when he dashed into the end
zone for the touchdown. The Tigers
just had to hold onto their 46-6 lead
for the perfect season.
The Tigers had completed just one
of their goals for the 2011 season.

City Commissioners


consider letting Brown


take over planning


By Cindy Jo Ayers
Trenton City Manager Taylor
Brown told the Trenton City Com-
missioners last week that it is time
to renew the City of Trenton's con-
tract with the North Central Florida
Regional Planning Council.
Brown went on to say that the
annual contract costs the town
$15,500 each year. The city man-
ager told the commissioners he
feels he can do the job because he
is a planner.
Brown went on to tell the com-
missioners that the city's Com-
prehensive Plan has not been up-
dated recently, and it is 20 years
old. Brown said'that he could start
to work on updating the Compre-
hensive Planas well as take care
of any new development issues.
Because of the extra work load, he
would like to receive an additional
$10,000 in salary. Brown said that
he required the additional salary
because of the work it entailed,
which would -mostly be done on
weekends and aftei hours.
If the commissioners decide to
use Brown as city planner, then it
would save the town $4,000 each
year. The additional savings of
$1,500 would be used for attorney
fees for some of the process that
has to be written by an attorney.
Several of the commissioners
discussed this issue. Commissioner
Tim Kinsey asked if the extra sal-
ary could be paid in the form of a
bonus.
City Attorney David M. Lang, Jr.
said that he would have to look into
it further, but he believed Brown
would have to be paid in salary..
Commissioner Randy Rutter
said, "We will end up with a more


timely process and a better product.
Seems like it's the way to go to let
Taylor do this."
During the discussion it was made
clear that the Commissioners would
take away the extra salary if it did
not work out with Brown taking on
the extra responsibility of doing the
planning work and if they had to
return to the North Central Florida
Regional Planning Council.
Lang advised the commissioners
to take some time to think about
this and revisit the issue at their
next meeting in December.
In other news, Kyle Stone, execu-
tive director of the Gilchrist County
Chamber of Commerce, requested
fees be waived for a Special Use
Permit for the 2011 Christmas on
Main Street event. The commis-
sioners voted unanimously to waive
the fee,
Stone told the commissioners
that.Christmas on Main Street is
planned for Friday, Dec. 9, 2011.
Current plans include, having a
trackless train at the event this year.,
The train will deliver Santa to the
depot.
The City of Trenton also' agreed
to fund the snow slide again this
year with $2,5)0 from community
redevelopment funds. Stone' told
commissioners she is planning to
have trees\on the courthouse lawn
this year sponsored by individual
businesses.
The dity commissioners also
unanimously voted to pay $3,040
to Clark Sales Display, Inc. to put
up holiday decorations on 19 light
poles along Main Street in Tren-
ton. Clark Sales will be paid out of
community redevelopment funding
as well.

A registered nurse with a family
history of breast cancer, Lolly Sum-
ner considers taking part in the Susan
G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure 60-
mile walk one' ofthe hardest things
she's ever had to do.
Sumner was one of 1500 walkers
who set out to make a personal differ-
ence in the fight against breast cancer
by raising $2,300 while walking from
Clearwater to St. Petersburg. The
three-day walk helped raise millions
of dollars for breast cancer research
and patient support programs.
Sumner said the community at-
mosphere among walkers, many of
whom were strangers prior to the
walk, was phenomenal. The days
were spent walking, and at night the
walkers would set up pink tents and
camp.
"This was my first year participat-
ing," Sumner said. "It was a tough
physical journey, but the emotional
journey was the hardest. The people
there who were affected by breast
cancer and taking part in the walk
were just amazing."
Sumner said the event, which was
open to men and women, served as
a reminder to her that cancer does
not discriminate. Personally, Sum-
ner said her grandmother died from
breast cancer at a young age and her
aunt has had a double mastectomy as
a result of breast cancer.
The. Trenton resident said she
would like to see more community
awareness about breast cancer in Gil-
christ County, possibly even starting
a short walk for children to get them
involved, so they will know the im-
portance of early self-exams.
The 2012 Susan G. Komen 3-Day
for the Cure will be held October 26-
28 in Tampa. For more information

Bryant commits to play baseball


at Winthrop University


By Carrie A. Mizell
Trenton High School junior Clif
Bryant has verbally,committed to
play baseball at Winthrop University
in Rock Hill, South Carolina.
Clif's athletic career started at the
age of 4 when he began playing t-ball
for the GMAC team. Over the years,
Clif said he has always liked playing
baseball, a sport that now consumes
much of his life.'
"Over the last two or three years,
I've become part of baseball," Clif
said. "I don't know what to do with-
out it."
When he's not starting at first base
for the Tiger baseball team, Clif is
playing travel ball for the Gatorball
Baseball Academy. For three sum-
mers Clif has played on the Gatorball
17 and Under Team for coach Steve
Barton.
"Clif has a tremendous work ethic,"
Barton said. "I think he's one of the
best hitters in his class in the state,
and 1 know he will be a big part of the
program at Winthrop University."
A Division I school that plays in
the Big South conference, Winthrop
University was named to U.S. News


L -s -
r 2.!


ClifBryant
& World Report's Top Ten Regional
Public Universities in the South in
the magazine's "Amercia's Best Col-
leges" 2011 edition.
Clif made the decision to commit
to Winthrop University after trav-
eling to South Carolina to visit the
campus in late September.
"It's a small town and I like that,"
Clif said.
Though he can't officially sign un-


til September 2012, the high school
junior who registered a .462 batting
average last season for the Tigers is
already looking forward to moving
to South Carolina. During the 2010-
2011 season, Bryant led the Tigers
with 47 RBI's and six homeruns.
Last year was excellent for the Tren-
ton athlete, who really wants to focus
his energy on the upcoming season,
which will kick-off in February.
"After Thanksgiving I will start
individual readiness training for this
season," Clif said.
In early August, Clif was selected
to play on the North Florida Team in
the Underclass All-American Games,
a tournament held at the University
of Central Florida Baseball Stadium
in Orlando. He was the first athlete to
hit a homerun in the tournament and
also hit three doubles.
"We were 3-1 as a team, which
is good considering we had never
played together before," Clif said.
College scouts have been swarm-
ing around the 6'1, 225-pounder
since then, but ultimately Clif decid-
ed Winthrop University is the school
for him.

Fall Family Fun

Fest is Friday

Free Partnership of Gilchrist County
are sponsoring 'a Fall Family Fun
Fest in honor of the Great Ameri-
can Smoke Out. It will be held at the
Gilchrist County FFA Arena fr6m
5:30-9:00 p.m. There will be carni-
val games, live music, and food. Our

who will talk about how when he
was a young person, he played sports
and he thought it was cool to use
dip. He will tell his story about how
he' discovered he had mouth can-
cer, and how he survived to tell his
story. Suwannee River AHEC will

By Geneva Cornwell
Obstacles, hurdles, barriers, sand-
traps, problems--whatever you call
them, we all face them. No task
worth achieving was ever accom-
plished without hindrances to over-
come. And it takes determination to
overcome them. The quality of de-
termination involves setting limits.
It requires self-discipline to willingly
forego attractive opportunities and
remain faithful to a task. Determina-
tion is minimizing distractions and
focusing on doing the right thing at
the right time. We cannot exercise
determination if we are not first able
to discern the right time to do them
and the right time to act. We cannot
be determined until we finalize diffi-
cult decisions based on what is right.
Determination is an ongoing dem-
onstration of both discernment and
decisiveness. Sensitivity and flexibil-
ity are essential characteristics of a
strong backbone. Similarly, the char-
acter quality of determination should
not be unbending and unfeeling--sen-
sitivity and flexibility are part of what
makes determination effective.
This month's highlight is on a
wonderfully caring, compassionate
person by the name of Mrs. Gloria
Myers. Ms. Myers is the education
supervisor at Lancaster Correctional
Institute. In 1986, after her move
from Hollywood, Florida to Gilchrist
County, it was another ten years be-
fore she began working at Lancaster.
This lady, one who possesses such a
serene personality, believes that liv-
ing life to the fullest means that a per-
son needs to do things in a positive


Gloria Myers


way in helping others. Even though
it was years in the coming, Myers
was determined to have character
education as a part of the curriculum
at Lancaster, and in 2010 it became
a reality. She feels that the inmates
there desperately need to know and
understand moral character.
In assisting the inmates, Myers at-
tempts to help them understand that
they should "never say never" or
"1 can't," and also be willing to tell
themselves that they can succeed with
anything they do. She shared that
LCI is the highest rated institute in
the State of Florida for inmates who
complete their studies and receive a
GED. She explained that one former
inmate has gone on to earn a college


degree and passed the bar and be-
came a licensed attorney. He'makes
the time, occasionally, to come for a
visit to Lancaster and gives a talk to
the inmates about being determined
by setting goals for their lives. My-
ers, a Christian, feels that it is a mat-
ter of knowing where strength comes
from while determining to do one's
best. She believes with her whole
heart that it is God who directs our
paths, when we let Him. Her favorite'
Scripture verse is "I can do all things
through Christ who strengthens me.
(Phillipians 4:13)"

Wranglers
Football and volleyball teams from
Riverside Christian School traveled
to Brunswick, Georgia on Novem-
ber 4 to compete in the Southeastern
Christian Conference play-offs.
The football team played Bruns-
wick Christian Academy first, fol-
lowed by a game against Emmanuel
Christian School. Despite losing both
games, the team learned a lot. More
important than winning the game,
was the fact that both the football
team and the volleyball team, who
also lost their games, were awarded
the "Most Christ-Like" Team trophy
at the play-offs.
The Wranglers would like to thank
the community for supporting them.


Moonlight Is Sunlight
(Kent Heaton)


When the moon is full the night turns bright with the
pastel glow of the reflected sun. The moon is our little
planet that governs our tides, guides the calendar and
offers many romantic interludes from word and song.
Created on the fourth day, God said, "'Let there be lights
in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from
the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for
days and years; and let them be for lights in the
firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth;' and
it was so. Then God made two great lights: the greater
light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night.
He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of
the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over
the day and over the night, and to divide the light from
the darkness. And God saw that it was good" (Genesis
1:14-18).
The moon is a light in the night sky but only because of
the reflection of the sun. It reflects the same face at all
times toward the earth and is positioned in size to
periodically block out the sun, called a solar eclipse. The
surface of the moon is very dark and has a similar
reflectance to coal. Yet the brightness of the sun can cause
the night to turn to day when the full moon is present. The
moon itself produces no light and was created solely for
the purpose of reflecting light. In one sense it may be
more accurate to say that what we see at night is
"sunlight"; only a reflection off the moon.
Consider the analogy we find in nature of our lives as
people of God. We are created from the dust of the ground
for the purpose of reflecting the light of God. Like the
moon, we cannot generate our glory but only serve as a
reflection of the glory of God. Isaiah wrote in the long ago
the words of our Creator: "Everyone who is called by My
name, whom I have created for My glory; I have formed


him, yes, I have made him" (Isaiah 43:7). As the moon
was created for the purpose to reflect the glory of the sun,
we were created for the purpose to reflect the glory of
God.
Jesus exhorted His disciples to let their light shine
before men (Matthew 5:14-16). The Son of God came to
be the "LIGHT" of men (John 1:4) and the one and only
"TRUE LIGHT" (John 1:9). Jesus declared Himself to be
the "light of the world" (John 8:12). The light of the
Christian is the reflected light of the Son of God. Peter
exhorted the First Century disciples to let their conduct
reflect the glory of God (1 Peter 3:12). Our lives should be
the reflection of God's glory. As the moon has no light
apart from the sun, so man has no light apart from the
Son.
The world must see Christ living in us as the reflection
of the Father's glory. Paul said, "I have been crucified
with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in
me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by
faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself
for me" (Galatians 2:20). Christ living in my life is the
glory of the Son of God showing forth in my speech, my
actions, my thoughts, my dress, my attitudes and my
character. Reflecting the teachings of Christ in our life
gives the glory to God. As beacons of light radiating in the
community we let our lights shine forth.
When the moon is full it lights up the darkest night.
When we allow the fullness of God's grace to fill our
lives, we light the darkest corners of humanity. Ilow
bright is our corner where we are? That will depend upon
the "true light" reflected in our example before others.
"But you, brethren, are not in darkness ... You are all
sons of light and sons of the day" (I Thessalonians
5:4-5). Shine today. Shine bright!

Letter to


the Editor

To the voters of Florida:
On January 31, we will have the
opportunity to vote for the person we
want to be the nominee for President
of the United States. This year it is
important to know that only regis-
tered Republicans will be able to vote
in the election. Florida is a closed pri-
mary state meaning that only regis-
tered voters in each party can vote in
that party's primary election. If you
support one of the various Republi-
can candidates who are seeking the
nomination, you must be a registered
Republican to vote. The Democrat
party already has their nominee and
that is our current President. No oth-
er Democrat will be running so there
will not be a Democrat primary. If
you are one of the many registered
Democrats in the county who votes
Republican, or are just plain fed up
with the direction the Democrat party
wants to take this great nation, now
may be the time to switch so that
you can have a voice in the election.
January 3rd is the cutoff date to reg-
ister and the staff at the Supervisor of
Election's office can help with any
questions that you have.

Bell Hi-Q News


The cast of "The Rednecks Bite Back" will be presenting this perfor-
mance on Saturday, November 19 at 7:00 p.m.'


Submitted
The. Trenton High ,School Drama
Club will be presenting a comedy
play titled The Rednecks Bite Back
by R. Eugene Jackson produced by
special arrangement with Big Dog
Publishing Company, Sarasota, FL.
The play stars Deilwone Henry and
Rebecca Manbeck as the Throttlebot-
toms, a "redneck" couple and their
children played by Olivia Fike and
Shawnee Gauge who have just won
the West Virginia lottery and are
about to purchase land in a very ex-
clusive area. However, their snobbish
desires are thwarted by another fam-
ily, the "Bubbas," a family of red-
necks played by Levy Sprague and
Jennifer DeLong and their two chil-
dren played by Kailob Rehburg and
Elizabeth Avila. The ensuing argu-


ments over the piece of land lead to
an encounter with sheriff Drew Dees
and his deputy Kylie Johnson. We
can't forget the arguments by the real
estate agent portrayed by Mandolin
Kulp and the Throttelbottoms lawyer
played by Adriana Molnar.
The Throttlebottoms' attorney hires
a military like team known as the
"Blubbers" led by Penelope Sutliff.
The Blubber crew includes Alyssa
Long, Jordan Beck and Mandoline
Kulp and lead to some slapstick an-
tics as they blunder and fumble in
their attempt to get the Bubbas to va-
cate the property. However, the Bub-
bas have their own secret weapon,
"Bubba Cousin" played by Jordan
Beck, a mean mutant redneck that
lives in a box.
Come join the Trenton High


School Drama club as we present
The Rednecks Bite Back at 7:00 p.m.
Saturday, November 19, at the Tren-
ton High School Auditorium. Tick-
ets are $5.00 for adults, $4.00 for

sion and refreshments will be served
for a donation.

The BHS Varsity Hi-Q Team


This past week the Bell HI-Q team
did not have a match. Instead we
were able to take a break. Following
is an introduction to our team:
One of our seniors who has a way
of enlightening our days is Elli Car-
ranza. Elli has been a part of the HI-Q
team a number of years, first spending
1 year on JV then moving up to Var-
sity in his junior year. He is the son
of Damaris Valdez and Walter Car-
ranza. While attending Bell Middle
High School he has been involved in
track, soccer, BETA, HI-Q, Student
Government, newspaper and weight-
lifting. Currently dual-enrolled, Elli
should be receiving his AA in June;
and his future plans are to study Fi-
nance or Architecture. Elli considers
his strength in HI-Q to be random
facts and with him the more random
the better.
Timothy Griffith, the oldest son of
Dena and Jimmy Griffith, is another
senior on our team this year. While
he was on the JV team for a time, he
took off a bit to pursue other inter-
ests. Timothy is involved in TRI-M,
BETA, the school newspaper, Pray
then Play sports teams at church,
Marching Band, Symphonic Band
and Jazz Band. Timothy brings with
him to the Varsity team his knowledge
of Science and Math. Timothy is cur-
rently dual enrolled at Bell and has
already been accepted to UCF where
he plans to major in Aerospace/Me-
chanical Engineering.
Micah Popp is one unique individ-
ual. He is the youngest son of Robin
and William Popp. Micah has decid-
ed to enjoy school his senior year by
being on the HI-Q team for the third
year and by completing the Criminal
Justice Program. After graduation
Micah plans to attend Santa Fe Col-
lege where he hopes to either become
an actor or open up his very own Ice
Cream Shop. Micah is yet another
student that feels his strongest asset
to HI-Q is random facts.
Another of our students that was
born and raised in the Bell area is
Austin Myer. Austin is the son of
Juanda and Hardee Myer. He has at-
tended Bell Schools all of his life. He
is also a member of the Bell JROTC.
Austin has been a member of the
marching Band and is currently a
member of Criminal Justice as well
as a performer in the 21st Century
Glee Club. After graduation Austin
hopes to join the Army and serve his
country.
The one and only girl on the Var-
sity team this year is Michaelah Wo-
odard. She is the daughter of Melanie
and Jay Anderson. She has been on
the team for many years where she
jumps at the opportunity to answer
any literature or political question.
After graduating this year she plans
to join the Air Force where she hopes
to become a translator.
Thomas Waldron is one of our ju-
niors who is a veteran to HI Q. He
was on the JV team last year where
he made an outstanding contribution
to the matches. He is the son of Karla
and Craig Waldron. He has lived in
the Bell area all of his life. Thomas
has been involved with not only HI
Q but also Criminal Justice, BETA,
Marching Band, Symphonic Band,
Jazz Band and Rock Band. In his
earlier years Thomas was involved in
such sports as Baseball, Soccer and


Football btit found his true calling to
be in the band. He currently is dual
enrolled at Florida Gateway College
where he is majoring in Criminal
Justice. In the future he plans to com-
plete the FWC program and become
an FWC officer.
Zack Zayas is another of our ju-
niors who is a two year veteran to HI
Q. Zack joined the team last year. He
is the son of Janie Coyne and Fred
Zayas. He moved to Bell roughly
seven years ago from New Mexico
where he attended Hubert Humphries
Elementary School. Zack is in such
clubs as HI Q and BETA as well as
part of the Criminal Justice Acad-
emy. After Zack graduates next year
he hopes to go to college where he
will go into the field of Electronics
and Technologies. Zack has been a
wonderful asset to our team.
Matthew Krienbihl is a junior who
is anewbie to the Bell varsity Hi Q
team; however, he is not a newbie
to the sport. He played HI-Q several
years with the Trenton team while he


was there in Middle School. Matthew
is the son of Roberta and George
Krienbihl.
Tyler Cutts is a junior on the team
who is a newbie. He is the son of
Greta and Stephen Cutts. He has
grown up in the Bell area where he
has attended Bell Elementary and
Bell Middle High School. Tyler is a
member of BETA, TRI-M, Marching
Band, Symphonic Band, Rock Band,
and Jazz Band, as well as a member of
the HI Q team. After graduating from
high school next year Tyler hopes to
major in Clarinet Performance and
become a professional player; then
his dream is to teach music at a col-
legiate level.
We have an awesome and talented
group of students on our Varsity HI-
Q team.

STAND FOR AMERICA
Rally for freedom!











November 27, 2011
4:00 p.m.
County Courthouse, Cross City, Florida

The American Civil Liberties Union is suing Dixie County, demanding the removal of the Ten Commandments
monument at the courthouse, a monument placed by a private citizen according to the Open Forum guidelines
crafted by the Dixie County commissioners.

In the first ruling the judge ordered the monument removed. That ruling is being appealed.
You can help in this fight! Come to the Rally Nov. 27'th

The purpose of this rally is to inform freedom-loving Americans why this fight is so important. It is being
sponsored by Dixie County citizens in order to sound the alarm that our rights and freedoms are being taken
away by unelected judicial activists intent on forcing their vision of America on the rest of us. This rally is also a
fundraiser to fight the ACLU in court. Liberty Counsel is defending the County. Liberty Counsel, a non-profit
public interest law firm, provides legal services free of charge. Liberty Counsel has a track record of defeating
the ACLU the vast majority of the time over the course of many years.


SCHEDULE OF EVENTS
Opening prayer: Pastor Mike Brown, First Baptist Church, Cross City
Presentation of the colors .Pledge of Allegiance
National Anthem
Special Music: Dixie County interdenominational choir
Speaker: Joe Anderson, the private citizen who placed the monument
Speaker: KrisAnne Hall, Constitutional attorney, former state prosecutor, historian

Sage T .TV R


By Cindy Jo Ayers
We had some mighty fine eating at
our home over the weekend because
of the Just Southern column.
No kidding, I went through pounds
and pounds of butter and a bag of
flour all for a Thanksgiving feast
nearly two weeks early.
John came in from the barn around
noon on Saturday and found me sur-
.rounded by piles and piles of dirty
pots and pans. Sadly, I have never
been one of those cooks who wash
as they go, so at the end of the day,
mounds of buttery frying pans and
dish pans dotted with the remains of
dressing lined my kitchen counters.
Cake pans and pie plates were left
soaking in the sink while I concen-
trated intently on whatever recipe I
was cooking at the time.
I find myself with a pencil behind
my ear and a spoon in my mouth won-
dering if the icing could use a little
less cream cheese. Is it in fact just a
little too rich? Is there really any such
thing as too much cream cheese?
The smells coming out of the oven
were well worth the effort and frankly
it was nice to have two days' worth of
food all cooked up at the end of my
"Turkey-Day Cook-A-Thon." But, to
be truthful I had to dig out my lap-
top from under mounds of magazines
and cookbooks which were marked
up with changes and improvements
(in my humble opinion) to recipes to
even type this week's column.
John did not hang around long
after he asked why on earth was I
cooking dressing and sweet potato
pie two weeks early? To tell you
the truth, it tried my patience, but I
wiped my flour covered hands on my
well worn apron so I could place my
hands on my hips and say, "You've
got to be kidding, it's now or never."
I explained that I had to publish the
Thalksgiving recipes this week as
we women and a few men have to get
started early to pull off the biggest
meal of the year.
I do declare, sometimes I wonder if
some. people fully appreciate the role
the cook plays in this annual event.
Probably not. But we can't part with
tradition, so I give to you some tried
and true recipes to hopefully make
your big day a little simpler. I would
like to pass on one little bit of sage
advice to those who are young cooks.
Make lots of lists and do as much as
possible ahead of time, as in the day
or night before.

Deep-Fried Turkey

Simple Cornbread Dressing

Green Beans with
Garlic and Mushrooms

Apple-Orange
Cranberry Relish

Tender Whole Wheat
Rolls

Butter Pecan Cake

So Southern Sweet Potato Pie
with Cinnamon Cream

Really and truly, our family's favor-
ite way to eat turkey is-deep-fried.
There are many reasons why--that
crispy skin, known around here as a
turkey cracklin', as well as the juicy
meat, prompt us to buy all that peanut
oil each year to fry up our turkey.
It is helpful that frying the ol' bird
outside leaves your oven turkey free
so that you have oven time for all the
other must bake items.




1 small turkey about 10-11 pounds
Several gallons of peanut oil
Seasonings of choice

Completely thaw out the turkey
in fridge. Wash the bird and salt and
pepper it well inside and out the night
before frying and put back in fridge.
If you are using any other seasonings
like garlic powder, this is the time to
apply it to the turkey.
The next day put the turkey in the
basket and lower it into the pot and
fill it to one inch above the turkey. Re-
move the. turkey and turn on the gas
cooker and heat oil to 375 degrees.


This can take up to 45 minutes so
start early. Place basket with turkey
inside into hot oil. Fry turkey for 3
minutes per pound then cook an ad-
ditional 5 minutes. The temperature
of your oil should not drop below 325
degrees the whole time you are fry-
ing. In fact, keep a constant watch on
the temperature as you will need to
adjust the heat of your cooker to keep
it at this temperature. After the turkey
is done, let it rest at least 15 minutes
before cutting into the turkey.
Note: we find it is helpful to put
down an old piece of cardboard un-
der the cooker so your concrete will
not get oil stained.
--------------

This dressing is really easy to make
and tastes good too. Anyone tackling
Thanksgiving dinner for the first time
can feel confident making it. Another
plus is you do not need drippings
from the turkey so it works well with
a fried turkey. You can bake corn-
bread and chop vegetables the night
before.




2 (6-ounce) packages buttermilk
cornbread mix
3/4 cup of butter
1 1/2 cups of chopped onion
1 1/2 cups of chopped celery
3/4 cup chopped green pepper aka
bell pepper, optional
2 cups crumbled biscuits or white
bread torn into small pieces
1/2 to 1 teaspoon poultry season-
ing
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon Toney Chachere's
Original Creole Seasoning,
optional
5 cups chicken broth
1 10.75-ounce can of cream of
chicken soup
3 eggs, beaten

Prepare and bake cornbread, cool,
crumble and set aside. Note: This
recipe was tested using Martha White
Cotton Country Cornbread mix. I

used one egg and 2/3 cup of milk
per mix. Any homemade cornbread
would do.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt butter in large frying pan. Add
onions, celery and bell pepper. Cook
until tender over medium heat.
In a very large bowl or dish pan
mix cornbread crumbles and white
bread pieces. Add poultry seasoning,
salt, pepper and Toney Chachere's
seasoning mix. Mix well; just go
ahead and use your hands.
Mix soup, chicken broth and eggs
to vegetables and butter. Stir well and
add to bread mixture.
Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and
bake for 30-40 minutes, depending
on how dry you like your dressing.
You may need to turn oven oh broil
to brown the top of dressing.

1 pounds fresh green beans
1 cup fresh mushrooms, sliced
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup onions, chopped
1 or 2 cloves garlic, minced
Salt and pepper to taste
Wash and snap green beans. Add 1
1/2 teaspoons of salt to 4 cups of wa-
ter and bring to boil. Add beans and
cook until just tender. Drain and set
aside.
In a frying pan melt butter over
medium-high heat and add mush-
rooms and cook until tender. Add
onions and garlic to mushrooms and
cook until soft. Add beans to vegeta-
bles in frying pan and toss until hot.
Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 8. Note: To get an early start,
wash and snap beans the day before
and store overnight in zip close bag
in fridge.


This simple relish is wonderful
alongside the turkey and dressing.
Just make it up tle day before and just
before Thanksgiving dinner spoon it
into a pretty dish and you are all set.

cut up
1 Gala apple, peeled, cored and
cut up
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple
drained
cup sugar
In food processor with knife blade
attached, combine cranberries and
orange peel and process until cran-
berries and orange peel are cut into
very small pieces. Next add orange
and apple and pulse a few times until
apple is in 1/4-1/2 inch pieces. Pour
into bowl and mix in drained pine-
apple and sugar. Cover and refriger-
ate overnight. Taste before serving
to make sure it is sweet enough. You
may need to add extra sugar. You
can make this recipe without a food
processor. Mince the orange peeling
extra fine and chop cranberries into
1/4 inch pieces. Oranges and apples
should be no larger than 1/2 inch
pieces.


This roll recipe is really good.
These rolls are made with whole
wheat, without being too wheaty.
This recipe can be mixed up a day
ahead which will save kitchen time
Thanksgiving morning.






2 packages active dry yeast
('4 ounce each).
2 cups warm water
(110 to 115 degrees)
cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten .
1 cup vegetable oil
2 cups whole wheat flour
(Makes 2 dozen rolls)

In a mixing bowl, dissolve yeast
in water. Let stand 5 minutes. If you
have a dough hook for your mixer
use it or just a regular beater will also
work. With mixer on slowest setting
add sugar and salt. Next add the all-
purpose flour one cup at a time until
all is incorporated. Beat on medium
speed for 1 minute and add egg and
oil. Add whole wheat flour and beat
3 minutes more on slow speed. Turn
soft dough into greased bowl, brush
oil on top of dough.
If making rolls now, let rise cov-
ered with towel until it doubles in
bulk about one hour.
If making rolls ahead of time, put
in bowl, cover with plastic wrap and
put in fridge. When you get ready
to make the rolls, punch dough
down and knead a few times on well
floured surface. Pinch off dough and
roll with floured or oiled hands into
1 inch balls placing close together
in a greased 9x13 dish or pan. Brush
tops with melted butter and let rise
covered for one hour and bake at 375
degrees for 12-15 minutes.
Note: It might take dough that has
been in refrigerator longer to rise,
about 1 hours.
This dough may be kept for 3 days,
but must be punched down daily.


/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
cup melted butter
% cup evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 unbaked 9-inch pie shell
Bake sweet potatoes until soft.
Cool, peel and mash with fork. In a
large mixing bowl combine the flour,
sugar, nutmeg and cinnamon. Add
the sweet potatoes, eggs, corn syrup,
vanilla, salt, butter and evaporated
milk, beat until smooth. Pour into
pastry shell and bake at 350 degrees
for 55-60 minutes.
Serve this pie with the following
Cinnamon Cream.



(Whipped Cream)
cup whipping cream
teaspoon cinnamon
teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
Beat cream until light and fluffy.
Add cinnamon, vanilla and sugar.
Beat until incorporated. This can be
made the day before use.
Whipping cream doubles in bulk
when whipped. This recipe is enough
to garnish the above pie.
Serve a heaping tablespoon on
each slice.

I tested several recipes that are
not printed. They just did not seem
worthy, so I culled them out. Of all
the recipes I tested, this So Southern
Sweet Potato Pie is my favorite. It
has a light texture and it is not nearly
as heavy as some recipes I have tried
in the past.
This pie can be baked the day be-
fore, cooled and stored in the fridge.
Be sure to set it out for a couple hours
before meal time so it will be room
temperature.
