choices for the county administra-
tor's position.
Tim Bennett, Bobby Crosby, and
Kent A. "Casey" Cichon will contin-
ue on in the hiring process with fur-
ther interviews and a meet and greet
with the community on December 5
at 6 p.m.
Interviews began at 5 p.m. on
Monday as the county commission-
ers asked a series of questions to four
candidates Bennett, Cichon, Crosby
and Jerry Driggers.
Commissioner Tommy Langford's
wildcard choice, Andrew DeCandis,
pulled his application for the job last
week.
Following the interviews, it was
announced that Bennett and Crosby
tied as the top applicants for the posi-
tion. Cichon was selected as the third
applicant to continue on in the inter-
view process.
The candidates will meet and greet
with the public on Dec. 5. At that time
citizens will have the opportunity to
speak with each candidate regarding
important issues within.the county.

istrator for Allendale County, South
Carolina. A military veteran, Bennett
grew up in Florida and would like to
return to the Sunshine State.
Crosby has been a resident of Gil-
christ County for 24 years. Crosby
has experience as a business owner
having owned and managed a saw-
mill business in Union County for 19
years.
SCichon has 18 years of manage-
ment experience. Currently, he works
as budget supervisor for Alachua

"The economy has hurt a lot
of people in this county and it
tried to hurt us, but God pulled us
through," said Suzi Wright, a Gil-
christ Sheriff's Volunteer.
Wright, or "Miss Suzi," as she
goes by, is one of a dozen Sher-
iff's Volunteers who work to see
that local families in need have a
Thanksgiving meal.
This year the effects of the
economy threatened to dampen
the Thanksgiving basket giveaway
when the Sheriff's Volunteers'
largest contributor announced two
weeks ago that they would be un-
able to assist with this year's give-
away.
After hearing the bad news, the
Sheriff's Volunteers feared they
would only be able to provide
needy families with a turkey this
year rather than enough food for
an entire meal.
"We just weren't sure we would
be able to get any dry goods," ex-
plained Milli Blalock, a Sheriff's-
Volunteer. "But by the grace of
God we were able."
The Sheriff's Volunteers kicked
up their efforts.
Wright said she called Bell El-
ementary School and asked school
officials to send a flyer home with
students annoLuncine that food
would be collected the follow r\ng
week
The fl\er went out on Frida\.

.0.

Some 300families received Thanksgiving baskets filled with food from the Sheriffs Volunteers.


Nov. 11, and food began pouring in
the following week. According to
Wright, the school collected over 300
pounds of food for the Thanksgiving
baskets in one week.
"We're so proud of all the stu-
dents for collecting that much food,"
Wright said. "All I can say is, 'Go
little bulldogs!"'
Through canned food drives and
financial donations the Sheriff's Vol-
unteers were able to provide Thanks-
giving baskets which included: a
10 to 12 pound turkey, green beans,
corn, stuffing, mashed potatoes, dan-
ish, cookies, bread, macaroni and
cheese, snack mix, and rice.
The Sheriff's Volunteers packed
bags filled with food on Friday and
distribution began Monday at 9 a.m.
By 9:15 a.m. 12 local families had
already picked up their Thanksgiving
baskets at the Sheriff's gun range.
"God bless you and have a great
Thanksgiving," Wright said, as peo-
ple who had waited in line out front
filed into the building one at a time.
There are no real qualifications to
receive ;a Thanksgiving basket, other
than recipients must line in Gilchrist
Count\. Names ol families in need are


provided by local schools, churches,
and daycare centers. Residents can
also call the Sheriff's Volunteers
and simply say they are in need of a
Thanksgiving meal.
"This year I've had four people
call me after receiving our letters and
say they don't need a Thanksgiving
basket becau-e their situation has im-


proved," Blalock said.
When the distribution ends on
Wednesday at noon, Wright ex-
plained that any remaining food
will be given to the Senior Citizens'
Food Pantr in Trenton.
"Ths is is all about helping others,"
Wnght said. "That's what we are all
comrutted to."

Practice makes a perfect speller.
Just ask the Gilchrist County School
District spelling bee champion Emily
McConnell, who practiced by writing
her spelling words 10 times each, ev-
ery day for a week.
"It was a lot of work!" McConnell
said.
The hard work paid off for Emily,
who is a sixth grade student at First
Place Academy, when she correct-
ly spelled her championship word
'gouge' correctly.
Emily defeated Meredith Webber,
an eighth grade student at Riverside
Christian School, in the fourth round
of the spelling bee when Meredith
failed to spell the word 'whimsical'
correctly. Emily correctly spelled the
word 'ecosystem' before being given
her championship word.
Eleven students who won or were
the first runner-up at their school's
spelling bees qualified to participate
in the countywide spelling bee held
at Trenton High School on Friday,
Nov. 18. Those students were: Dako-
ta Horlocker, an eighth grade student
at Trenton Middle School; Adam
Smith, a fifth grade student at Trenton
Middle School; Garrett Caldwell, an
eighth grade student at Bell Middle
School; McKenzie Martin, a seventh
grade student at Bell Middle School;
Aubrey Cook, a fifth grade student
at Bell Elementary School; Emily
McConnell, a sixth grade student at
First Place Academy; Jerilyn Marley,

Wyatt Rutgerson, a fourth grade stu-
dent at Bell Elementary School; Mer-
edith Webber, an eighth grade student

Taylor Drawdy, an eighth grade stu-
dent at Riverside Christian School.


"We are very proud of the kids who
are up on the stage today; you are all
winners," said Janet Bradley, director
of secondary education for the Gil-
christ County School District.
Prior to the start of the spelling
bee, Trenton Middle-High School
social studies teacher Larry Rawlings
was introduced as the spelling bee


pronouncer. Bradley also introduced
the judges: Nancy Hastie, Jill Carhart
and Jackie Downs.
In an effort to soothe the students'
nerves, each student was given the
opportunity to walk to the micro-
phone and introduce themselves to
the audience, which was filled with
family members, friends and fellow
students.
Next, the students crossed the stage
one-by-one and correctly spelled
their first round words, which includ-
ed: pursuit, hostile, juvenile, ecstatic,
gourmet, jubilant, disappoint, ele-
gant, puree, condiment and leisure.
The first two students up to the mi-
crophone, Taylor Drawdy and Adam
Smith, incorrectly spelled their words
'desperately' and 'accrued' and were
eliminated in round two. Then Mer-
edith Webber spelled the word 'ul-
terior' correctly, followed by Rylie
Butler who incorrectly spelled the
word 'syllable.' Jerilyn Marley then
correctly spelled the word 'brochure.'
Aubrey Cook, Dakota Horlocker,
Garrett Caldwell and McKenzie Mar-
tin all incorrectly spelled their words
'serenade,' 'allocation,' 'technician,'
and 'frivolous.' Emily McConnell
spelled the word 'calzone' correctly.
Wyatt Rutgerson then incorrectly
spelled the word 'emphasize' to fin-
ish round two.
Round three started with three re-
maining contestants, Meredith Web-

Former Trenton mayor


proposes cost saving


measure


By Carrie A. Mizell
Rising garbage
rates in the City of
Trenton have at least
one resident looking
for alternative solu-
tions.
Former Trenton
Mayor Pete Randolph
presented a recycling
proposal to the city
commissioners last
week and asked for
their consideration on
a. plan that could save
residents up to $8 each
month on their utility


Pete


bills.
Randolph's plan works like this;
city residents would take their recy-
clables to a county provided drop off
location at the city park once a week
and be issued a ticket or coupon
worth $2, which would be redeem-
able toward a discount on the city
garbage fee. The discount would not
exceed $8 per month.
"I think this would really encour-
age citizens, as well as give them an
incentive to recycle," Randolph said.
"It would also be a way for citizens
to have some control over the city's
garbage rate."
Like Randolph, several city resi-
dents have spoken up recently about
the steadily increasing costs of gar-
bage, water and sewer rates. The
complaints have largely fallen on
deaf ears, as the city commissioners
voted to raise garbage rates in Octo-
ber despite cries for relief from city
residents, many of whom are on fixed
incomes.
The city's garbage contract with
Waste Pro outlines a plan that would
increase garbage collection rates
each year until the contract expires in
2013-2014.
Trenton Mayor Glen Thigpen's po-
sition is that the city only increases
the cost of garbage collection enough


each year to cover
the increase from
the contract with
Waste Pro. But the
fact is, the city of
Trenton marks up
the price of garbage
pickup each year so
they can also profit
from the arrange-
ment with Waste
Pro.
According to
Taylor Brown,
Trenton city man-
Randolph ager, the city made
$57,480.94 during
the 2009-10 budget year off garbage
collection.
In 2010-11 the City profited
$61,421.85 off garbage collection.
That money goes into the city's gen-
eral fund to pay operating costs of
city services, including the Trenton
Police Department.
As if garbage rate increases were
not enough, the city commissioners
passed Resolution 2011-11 on Octo-
ber 11, which increased the rates for
water utility fees and sewer utility
fees by 3.6 percent each, based on the
Federal Consumer Price Index.
"I realize that prices go up and I'm
not fussing about that," Randolph
said. "There are four people living
at my house and we recycle, so we
could live on once a month garbage
pick-up."
The former mayor said that in this
day and age the government tells
citizens what to do and how much to
pay and citizens have little recourse
in the matter. If his cost saving pro-
posal were approved, Randolph said
citizens could have a choice because
there would be a cost saving measure
in place.
Brown said that the Trenton City
Commissioners will hold a workshop
in early 2012 to discuss the garbage
collection contract.

Submitted
Mark your calendars for the 23rd
Annual Fanning Springs Festival of
Lights on Saturday, December 10.
This long-running festival is spon-
sored by the Fanning Springs Cham-
ber of Commerce and will be held at
the historic Fort Fanning Park, which
is located on the Suwannee River at
U.S. Highway 19.
An all-day family-friendly event,
that is free and open to the public,
culminates with the nighttime lighted
boat parade on the Suwannee River.
This year's event, as always, will
be loaded with something for every-
one.
There will be lots of arts and craft
vendors offering wares for those
looking for a unique holiday gift, as,
well as plenty of food vendors. There
will be kids games for the young-
sters, and Santa Claus himself has
promised to make an appearance too!
Returning for this year's festival will
be the Yellow Ducky Race. The car
show, always a big attraction, prom-


ises to have a fine showing. For fur-
ther information about, or to inquire
about participating in the car show,
please contact Ron Tucker at (352)
493-7846.
A huge draw for this annual event
is plenty of quality live music. Per-
forming at the 2011 Festival will be
the Fanning Springs Community
Church Praise Band, Big Cypress
Bluegrass Band, the Philman Family
Band, and Dotti South & the Slackers.
As for the past several years, singers
Gina Cowsert and Laura Murphy will
perform as well as handle MC duties
for the day.
All of these events lead up to the
renowned lighted-boat parade. This
part of the festival packs the banks
of the Suwannee River from the
boat launch across from the springs
in Fanning to Suwannee Gables. Te-
resa Jones is handling registration for
the boat parade and may be reached
at (352) 493-2098.

Make a New Years resolution to
help the children.
Right now there are about 650
children in the dependency system in
the 8th Judicial Circuit. Only half
of those children have a Guardian ad
Litem to advocate for them in court.
Through no fault of their own, chil-
dren are separated from their fami-
lies and everything they are familiar
with because of neglect, abuse or
abandonment by their parents. It's
a nightmare for them. They need to
know that someone is there for them,
to care about them, and to let them
know they are worthy and worth-
while.
Guardian Volunteers help assure
the welfare of the children and that
they do not become statistics. They
serve as fact finders for the judge,
make recommendations and speak
for the child in court
Guardian Volunteers are ordinary
people doing extraordinary work.
The program offers free training, le-
gal and staff assistance. Volunteers
commit to about one year and 10
hours per month.
The next class starts January 10 so
make a New Year's resolution to be
a child advocate. Call Jenni at 352-
493-6051 or go to guardianadlitem.

Day 1, Saturday, October 8--After
prayer by Bill Williamson, we were
on our way, believe it or not by 5:40
a.m., our earliest yet. Our first day
was spent getting acquainted with 14
new travel members and catching up
with 'what's new' with the other 41.
Lots of bus activities kept us busy
and early evening we had arrived in
Statesville, North Carolina for dinner
at the K & W Cafeteria before settling
down at the Sleep Inn for the night.
Day 2, Sunday, October 9--Our day
started with prayer by Ron Huey for
God's protection for each of us. On
the road again, we had our Sunday
devotional. Joe Elder, our honorary
chaplain, gave a wonderful message
on 'compassion,' a good reminder
that we who are God's children
should show love and compassion to
those who are in need.
Thanks to Gene Layfield for be-
ing our song director. When she is
on one of our tours, you can count on
her to lead our singing.
After lunch found us in Beckley,
West Virginia, to take in the Beckley
Exhibition Coal Mine. We took an
underground tour (via tram) through
a mine that operated in the late 1800s.
Our guide, a retired miner, gave us
an authentic view of the early life to
the present of the hard work the coal
miners lived. We also visited their
Coal Museum, a Coal Camp House,
church, superintendent's house and
schoolhouse.
Our dinner meal plus shopping was
at the Tamarack, a showcase for the
state's cultural heritage. Night found
us in Charleston, West Virginia at the
Days Inn for our lodging.
Day 3, Monday, October 10--Af-
ter starting our day with prayer by
Bill Williamson, we ventured on to
the Mid-Ohio Valley, which was the
- beginning of the magnificent fall fo-
liage everywhere you looked. In all
our travel, never have we seen such
an array of colors! God is truly the
great master artist.
The Grand Central Mall in Vienna,
West Virginia, was our destination for
lunch. Oh yes, we allowed time for
shopping. At the mall is where Ray
Avery decided he would rather visit
the St. Joseph's Hospital in Parkers-
burg, West Virginia, for nine days.
Lots of prayers were made on his


behalf. Our next stop was in Mari-
etta, Ohio. We got aboard a 296-pas-
senger sternwheeler, the Valley Gen,
for a narrated 90-minute sightseeing
cruise along the Ohio River.
The Dutch Valley Restaurant in
Sugarcreek, Ohio, provided our din-
ner meal. We then arrived in Stras-
burg, Ohio, at the Ramada Limited,
which became our home away from
home for the next three days.
Day 4, Tuesday, October 11--Frank
Colson lead the group in prayer ask-
ing the Lord to be with us as we
took in our first full day in the Amish
Country. Our first stop of the morning
was at the Warther's Museum. See-
ing is believing at the unique price-
less carvings he has left as a heritage
to his family and our country. His
Lincoln Funeral Train carving has
been on exhibit at the Smithsonian
Institution in Washington, D.C. Mrs.
Warther's collected buttons, which
she arranged into beautiful designs,
are displayed in her Button House.
Walnut Creek Cheese enlightened
us on how the Amish folk shop. They
buy a lot of their food in the bulk thus
saving money on packaging. In the
deli' section you could buy Virginia
Baked Ham for $3.49 a pound.
De Dutchman Restaurant proved
to be an excellent choice for lunch.
Schrock's Amish Farm was our
next stop. We were taken on a wagon
ride around the farm and then toured
the inside of an-Amish home.
We made our way to Heilii's
Cheese to sample as many of their
50 varieties of cheese as we dared.
A few of us were more interested in
their homemade fudge.
Our last activity of the day was the
big event...The Wedding Feast. Sit-
ting at the head table were the bride
and groom, Carolyn and Earl Lane
and their attendees. With their hats
and prayer caps on, we couldn't tell
who was who. Our feast consisted
of mashed potatoes, gravy, dressing,
green beans and fried chicken.
Day 5, Wednesday, October 12--
Frank Colson started our day with
prayer asking for protection for our
group. We woke up to rainy weather,
but most of our activities were in-
doors, and it didn't slow us down at
all. We made our way to Lehman's
Hardware in Kidron, Ohio. If you
think a wood cook stove would be
cheap at Lehman's, think again. It
had a big price tag of over $5,000.
We decided we would rather use an
electric stove.
The Holmes County Flea Market
was next on our schedule, lots of
bargains, from jams to jewelry. The
flea market was housed in three large
buildings...most of us were able to
cover only one of them.
The Amish and Mennonite Heri-
tage Center was our next stop. An
interpretive tour of Behalt, a 265-ft.
circular mural and a film depicted
the history of the Mennonite Church,

Country

which began in Zurich, Switzerland
in 1525 to the present.
Time was allotted for shopping in
downtown Berlin where there were
lots of quaint shops to browse around
in. Dinner found us in Wilmot, Ohio,
at the Amish Door Restaurant.
Day 6, Thursday, October 12--Af-
ter prayer by Carl Williams, we left
the Amish Country behind and set
our sights for Dresden Ohio, to visit
the Longaberger Homestead. We
were divided into two groups before
taking their shuttle to the basket mak-
ing facility where we met our basket
ambassador for a floor tour. All of
their baskets are hand made and their'
employees are paid by the number of
baskets they turn out each day. Im-
mediately following our tour, we had
reservation at the Crawford Barn"
Restaurant for lunch, a lovely buffet.
We were greeted again with rain as
we made our way to Williamstown,'
West Virginia, to step back in time'
with a visit to Henderson Hall Plan-
tation. If you are a history buff, the
pre-civil war 21-room Henderson'
Mansion will amaze you with its in-
credible collection of furnishings and
artifacts.
Ryan's Restaurant provided our
dinner this evening before arriving at
the Magnuson Hotel for the night.
Day 7, Friday, October 14--Begin-
ning our day with prayer by Henry
Roberts, we left West Virginia'and
North Carolina behind as we made
our way back to Columbia, South
Carolina. Lots of beautiful scenery'
to enjoy as well as bus activities kept
us entertained. The Cracker BarrelK
Restaurant provided our dinner and;
yes some had to do some last minute!'
shopping while there. Sleep Inn was*-
our lodging for the night.
Day 8, Saturday, October 15--T.J.
Layfield offered up prayer for the'
group that morning and then we were
on our way to the Mighty Eighth Air:
Force Museum in Pooler, Georgia.
Arriving at lunchtime, we arranged:

Now awid 7Aei.
By Carrie A. Mizell

Just in time for Thanksgiving,
People for the Ethical Treatment
of Animals (PETA) has asked the
town of Turkey, Texas to change
it's name to "Tofurky." /C, L.
Calling tofurky "a savory, flavor- 7'
ful, 'meaty' vegan entree," Tracy '
Reiman, executive vice president -
of PETA, told Turkey, Texas may-
or Pat Carson that the animal rights
group would treat the entire town
to a vegan holiday feast if the name
is changed.
In a letter Reiman sent the mayor, she claims that turkeys suffer virtu-
ally every day of their lives and that eating the vegetarian alternative tofurky
comes without the suffering of the turkeys.
"Thanksgiving is murder on turkeys," Reiman told the Associated Press.
"By changing its name to 'Tofurky,' Turkey would send a clear message that
delicious, savory mock meat is an easy way to celebrate without causing suf-
fering and give a bird something to be thankful for."
Obviously the 494 residents of Turkey, Texas are opposed to the name
change.
In watching national news coverage on this story, I loved what one older
resident had to say. The jest of which was that every welcome station, rest
stop and gas station in the state of Texas sells at least one bumper sticker that
reads: "Don't mess with Texas!" The Turkey, Texas resident suggested that
new bumper stickers be made up that say, "Don't mess with Turkey, Texas!"

It Is Called Thanksgiving
(Kent Heaton)


Of all the holidays celebrated through the year, none is
as endearing as the fourth Thursday in November. The
heat of summer has given way to the crisp air of fall with
leaves falling upon a canopy of radiant beauty. Nature
begins to prepare for the solitude of winter. In the natural
desire of man thoughts go homeward in a time where
families come together to share a time of thanksgiving.
Less commercialized than other holidays, Thanksgiving
retains a sense of the need for the home and hearth. When
possible, parents gather their children and grandchildren
together along with the aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws and
a few out-laws for a grand feast of dining and fellowship.
It is called Thanksgiving to turn the hearts toward a
time of giving thanks and celebration of received
blessings. To be thankful recognizes a gift given by
someone else. The spirit of Thanksgiving suggests a debt
of gratitude. Helen Keller summed it up this way: "For
three things I thank God every day of my life: thanks that
He has vouchsafed me knowledge of His works; deep
thanks that He has set in my darkness the lamp of faith;
deep, deepest thanks that I have another life to look
forward to a life joyous with light and flowers and
heavenly song" (Helen Keller, Story of My life, 1905).
Many will celebrate Thanksgiving as a time to
acknowledge an ill-conceived notion there is no God and
that everything we have is the product of man. The apostle
Paul writes, "Because, although they knew God, they did
not glorify Hint as God, nor were thankfid, but became
futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were
darkened" (Romans 1:21). Those who share in the deeper
peace and truth of a divine creator will recognize that all
blessings come from Jehovah God. "Every good gift and
every perfect gift is from above, and conies down from


the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or
shadow of turning" (James 1:17).
The true spirit of Thanksgiving should return to fertile
soil of the word of God that shows that everything we
have comes from Him. Our breath is held in the hand of
God (Daniel 5:23). All of the gold in the world belongs to
the Father "The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,'
says the Lord of hosts" (Ilaggai 2:8). The rain comes
upon all men by the power of God (Matthew 5:45). Only a
loving Father would offer Hlis own Son to save man (John
3:16). What can we not attribute to God in our blessings?
Nothing.
During this time of Thanksgiving, let us all reflect upon
the blessings we have from the Creator of the world. We
will pause to think of our earthly attachments but
ultimately the true sense of Thanksgiving comes from a
sacrifice made nearly 2,000 years ago in a place called
"the Skull" (John 19:17). To be thankful for our home is
an expression of gratitude from the hand of God but this
home is only temporary. The eternal home is what we
must be truly thankful for as we look to a land yet
occupied by the people of God. Be thankfull for a peace of
mind that passes all understanding (Philippians 4:7). Lift
up songs of thanksgiving for the blood of. Jesus Christ (I
John 1:7). Increase your faith in the presence of a God
who loves us and cares for us and calls us Ilis children
(Romans 8:1-17). Someone wrote, "Count your hlessings
instead of your crosses, yotur0 gains instead of 'your losses:
your .jo's instead of .'vour woes: 'our0 friends instead of
your.foeses, your smiles instead of your tears:; your courage
instead of.your fears: your health instead of your wealth:
count on God instead ofy,ourself "

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


As I sit down to write this week's
column on Monday, it is not the
thought that I will be slinging pot
and pans on Wednesday night and
Thursday morning that I am most ex-
cited about. You know I'm just crazy
enough about cooking that the idea
of the biggest of all food holiday gets
my blooding pumpin.'
As 1 get older and hopefully wiser,
1 become more excited about spend-
ing the entire day at our family's old
hunting camp down toward Cedar
Key. This will probably be my only
trip to the woods this year so I'll sa-
vor every moment of it.
There is nothing, nothing better
than riding down the old railroad
tram road built by loggers who once
logged the huge virgin cypress from
our Florida woodlands using cross cut
saws. What a beautiful ride between
sloughs filled with cypress knees on
my brother Mike's golf cart. I love to
ride along with him as he points out
buck rubbings or an area where the
wild hogs are rooting up the soil. He'
loves the woods just as our father did
and knows the family hunting land
like the back of his hand.
I like nothing better than to travel
and will pack my bags in a second
to go gallivanting half or all the
way across this beautiful country of
ours; but truly our Florida swamps,
hammocks and sloughs are sights to
behold. 1 have been blessed to have
sailed on a schooner off Maine, rid-
den in a carriage in Savannah, and
climbed through the Rocky Moun-
tains on the back of a horse, but a day
spent in the real Florida outdoors sit-
ting around the old camp fire is some-
thing to treasure.
I can't wait to pull on my faded
well worn flannel shirt and slip away
from the busy lives we all lead to
spend Thanksgiving day with my
two brothers and their wives, as well
as my mother. A day spent with our
family is a treasure and I plan to sa-
vor every last moment of it.
When counting our blessings, hav-
ing a family to share this special holi-
day with in a beautiful place where


I can see God's hand at work comes
near the top and I am very thankful.
This simple salad is a good way
to use some of that left over turkey
we are all sure to have the day af-
ter Thanksgiving. Not that there is a
thing wrong with a turkey sandwich
made using light bread slathered in
mayo and sprinkled heavily with
black pepper.




Dressing
1/2 cup olive oil
1/8 cup balsamic vinegar
1 to 2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon Dijon or regular mus-
tard
1/2 teaspoon salt
black pepper to taste
Salad
Cooked sliced turkey
8 cups romaine lettuce or mixed
salad greens
1/2 cup craisins
2 Florida oranges, pealed and sec-
tioned
3 ounces Gorgonzola cheese
3/4 cup of pecans, toasted
Make the dressing one hour before
serving. Put all the dressing ingre-
dients in a Mason jar with a lid and
shake well. Do not chill before serv-
ing. Just shake the jar every now and
then while you are preparing the rest
of the salad. Wash the salad greens
and drain them on paper towels in
fridge for about 30 minutes. This time
spent in the fridge will crisp up the
salad greens. Toast the pecans in the
oven at 300 degrees until they turn a
light golden brown; don't over cook;
cool pecans before adding to salad.
Place cut up salad greens in salad
bowl, add craisins, orange slices,
crumbled cheese and pecans, pour
the dressing over salad and toss. Di-
vide salad onto four salad plates and
arrange several turkey slices across
the top of each salad.
Note: You can substitute Pepper
Jack Cheese for the Gorgonzola in
this recipe.

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. 27th!

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

NOTICE


for some it can strike at a younger
age. Not, everyone who uses tobac-
co will get cancer but 'they are 50
times more likely than someone who
doesn't. Spit tobacco contains 28
known carcinogens or cancer-caus-
ing agents in one can of product. In
addition it can have about 3-4 times
the 'amount of nicotine as a pack of
cigarettes. Nicotine happens to be
the #1 killer in tobacco products as
it causes heart attack, heart disease,
and strokes. Many times people as;
sociate only cancer and lung disease
with tobacco use but the actual big-
gest killer is how nicotine affects the
heart.
Bender visited Gilchrist County
on Friday to share his story with
7th graders at both Bell and Trentoni
Middle Schools. He spent the rest of
his time meeting others in the com-
munity as well as being the special
guest for the Family Fun Fall Fes-
tival that evening. Every year th4
Great American Smoke Out occurs
in November and is a time to encour.
age tobacco users to try giving up the
habit for the day.

the past with them, to help them see
and understand the sacrifices that
our Veterans and their families have
endured to keep us free. After each
program students, teachers, and all
those who take the time to attend
our program thank everyone that
helped put it together. One teacher
commented "Last night when Taps
was beautifully played there was one
person who was sobbing behind me.
Not just sniffling (that was happening


all around the auditorium) this person
was sobbing. This program that the
JROTC puts on is indeed for our
entertainment; however, it really
touches the community and most
especially the Veterans and their
families."
For our cadets who put this program
on each year it is truly done from the
heart and is keeping with the JROTC
motto; "Developing Young People to
Become Better Citizens."

Tigers breeze past


Lafayette and into


the Regional finals


By John M Ayers
The Trenton Tigers were at work
again Friday night as they put to-
gether an amazing offensive run-
ning attack to defeat the Lafayette
County Hornets 49-13 before a full
house in Trenton. The Tiger fans
began as the Tigers came out of
the smoke filled tunnel to a stand-
ing ovation as the undefeated host
were again ready to notch another
win on the road to the state cham-
pionship.
Tiger quarterback Stephen Smith
set the stage on the Tigers' open-
ing offensive drive as he capped a
75-yard drive with a 5-yard touch-
down run. Cedric Stokes added the
extra point kick for a 7-0 lead. The
Hornets were reintroduced to the
Tigers' defense on their first drive
as the visitors failed to pickup a
first down and punted the ball back
to the Tigers. Stephen Smith set up
the Tigers' offense on their 9-yard
line with 5:28 remaining in the first
quarter. Smith went off tackles for
a 91-yard.race to the end zone.
Stokes again kicked the extra point
for a 14-0 lead. In the second peri-
od Stokes busted through the Hor-
nets' defense on a 26-yard touch-
down run. The Hornets scored as
the clock ran out in the first half on
a Garrett Debose pass to Rodney
Brown deep in the corer of the
end zone. Negrete added the extra
point kick as the Tigers took a 20-7
lead at intermission.


The Tigers came out in the third
period striving to avenge the Mayo
score. Brandon Stone got things
rolling on a 72-yard touchdown run.
Smith added the 2-point conversion
for a 28-7 lead. Cedric Stokes fol-
lowed as he dashed 82 yards for a
touchdown and the extra point kick
to increase the Tigers' lead to 35-7.
As the third period was coming to a
close, Stone charged 44 yards for a
Tiger score. Michael Smith kicked
the extra point.to put this game fur-
ther out of reach for the Hornets.
In the final period Trenton's Ken-
ny Deen ran 8 yards for a touch-
down. Smith added the kick as the
Tigers held a 49-7 lead. Lee Jones
scored on a 6-yard run for Mayo to
give the visitors a 49-13 mark.
The Tigers rushed for over 500
yards as Brandon Stone had 11 car-
ries for 163 yards. Cedric Stokes
rushed for 154 yards on 11 carries,
and Stephen Smith added 117 yards
on 10 carries for the 11-0 Tigers.
Trenton will now travel to Monti-
cello Jefferson County Friday night
to play the Tigers in the Region 3 fi-
nals. This game will kickoff at 7:30
p.m.
The Trenton Quarterback Club
will charter a tour bus to Monti-
cello for the Friday evening game.
Seats are available for $20 each by
contacting Bill Deen at 222-7444.
The bus will leave THS gym at 3:30
p.m. with a stop in Perry for dinner.
Go Tigers!
