Crosby selected as county administrator in 3-2 vote


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners voted 3-2 Monday night to
hire Trenton resident Bobby Crosby
as county administrator.
Kenrick Thomas, Randy Durden
and Sharon Langford voted in favor
of hiring Crosby, while D. Ray Har-
rison Jr. and Tommy Langford cited
his lack of qualifications for voting
against the motion. Shortly after the
motion passed, the commissioners
voted unanimously on a second mo-
tion, proposed by Commissioner Har-
rison, to stand united behind Crosby
as the new county administrator.
"1 am overwhelmed with the sup-


port and encouragement given to me
by the citizens of Gilchrist County,
and I look forward to serving the
people as their county administrator,"
Crosby said on Tuesday morning.
Tim Bennett, Kent "KC" Cichon,
and Bobby Crosby were called in
individually Monday night for in-
terviews before the county commis-
sioners. Gilchrist County residents
crowded into the county commission-
ers meeting room to hear what the top
three applicants had to say and voice
their own opinions on who the next
county administrator should be.
When asked why he wanted to be
the county administrator, Crosby said


that he would like to have the oppor-
tunity to give back to the community
he has called home for 24 years..
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
asked Crosby if he would be able
to serve all the citizens of Gilchrist
County fairly if he were hired, in-
cluding the ones who have criticized
him over the last several weeks.
Crosby said that people have a right
to say what they want to say, and he
is a big enough person to look over it
and serve every resident of Gilchrist
County fairly.
During the interview process, Cros-
by spoke of possibly re-launching
the county's planning commission


and initiating a management control
system to monitor the productivity of
county employees.
Citing his 20 years of work expe-
rience in the forest industry, Cros-
by said that a lot of time should be
dedicated to agriculture in Gilchrist
County.
When asked how he would reduce
costs in the county, Crosby said he
would go to each department and
see where employees and equipment
could be cross-used.
Unlike the other applicants for the
position, Crosby didn't hesitate when
he was asked what his top priority
would be as county administrator.


"The citizens of Gilchrist County,"
Crosby said.
After a 30-minute break where citi-
zens had the opportunity to meet and
greet with each candidate, Commis-
sion Chair Tommy Langford called
the meeting back to order.
Four local residents, Jean Wonser,
Vicki Perez, Pete Butt and Jerry Nie-
man, spoke up, asking the commis-
sioners to choose either Tim Bennett
or Kent "KC" Cichon for the posi-
tion, citing their government experi-
ence and qualifications.
In contrast, Gilchrist County resi-
dents C.D. Moore and Doug Craw-

Bridget Mathis is not like most
birthday girls.
It's unlikely that Bridget will cel-
ebrate her 3rd birthday on December
19 with a princess theme party; in-
stead she will be recovering from an-
other round of chemotherapy to treat
her leukemia.
Bridget's grandmother, Lisa
Mathis, would like to ask everyone
who has prayed for, and are con-
tinuing to pray for Bridget since she
was diagnosed with leukemia at 20-
months-old to please send the little

girl a birthday card this year with a
prayer written inside.
"We would like to do something
very special for her this year," Lisa
said. She will have chemo on De-
cember 15 and a spinal tap with
chemo on December 16, so we are
not sure how she will be feeling on
her birthday."
Icing Smiles has volunteered to
make Bridget a birthday cake, and
Lisa said she hopes the little girl will
get tons of birthday cards to make the
big day special.
"We would like for Bridget to sit
down someday when all the treat-
ments are done and read all the spe-
cial prayers that so many people have
sent her to help her make it through
this journey," Lisa said. "I want her
to have a little glimpse into how
much she was loved and how many
people prayed for her without even


knowing her. Thank you to everyone
in advance for helping us fulfill this
wish for our baby."
Since the Gilchrist County Jour-
nal first ran an article on October 14,
2010, letting the community know
that little Bridget Mathis had been
diagnosed with leukemia, she has
undergone numerous chemno treat-
ments; and her leukemia is now in
remission.
Because of the serious nature of
Bridget's leukemia, she will have to
continue treatment until January 25,
2013.
"As Dr. Slanton explained it to us,
all it takes is for one cancer cell to
be hiding and if they quit treating her
now that one cell can become billions
of cells and then it would be too late
for Bridget, so we will continue treat-
ment for another year," Lisa said.
"She takes a daily chemo pill, and
her once brown hair is now coming
back in blonde. She has regained her
weight and is becoming Miss Chatty
Kathy...we love each and every mo-
ment of it!"
Throughout her battle with a dis-
ease that has ravaged her little body,
Bridget's family, including her par-
ents Edward and Heather Mathis,
have kept their faith in God and feel
strongly that He will cure her.
"She i; a fighter and she will con-
quer the cancer that has invaded her
little body," Lisa said. "Bridget has
lost all of those beautiful brown curls,
but it just makes her blue eyes shine
even more. She is so brave; she does
each treatment with little fuss, as now
she knows what is going to happen

Pumpkin rolls, made by local hands


By Carrie A. Mizell
The smells of the holiday season
permeate the air inside the Living
Praise Church of God fellowship
hall.
The women of the church are at it
again!
Making and selling pumpkin rolls
for $15 each provides the Living
Praise women's ministry with enough
money to buy gift bags for children
and the elderly and provides Christ-
mas gifts for several families in need
who attend the church.
"We started doing this last year and
sold around 50 pumpkin rolls," said
Flora Brock. "And we made several
batches this year at Thanksgiving."
The ladies commit to a pumpkin
roll making day and gather inside the
church fellowship hall. After tying on
aprons, they get to work mixing in-
gredients and loading pans in and out
of the oven every 20 minutes. The
pumpkin rolls are then rolled in pow-
dered sugar and eventually filled with
a cream cheese mixture that melts in
one's mouth.
Customers can choose if they pre-
fer a pumpkin roll with or without
pecans.
As Susan Wells pointed out, the
pumpkin rolls are a good investment
because they can be stored in the
freezer for up to a year and pulled out
whenever the urge strikes.
To purchase a pumpkin roll this
holiday season, call Susan Wells at
(352) 222-7015 or Flora Brock at
(352) 494-1723.


Susan Wells, Flora Brock and Shannon Wells work in the kitchen.

Capital City Bank to issue

temporary cards at

account opening


Submitted
This month Capital City Bank in-
troduces a new program that will al-
low clients to receive a ready-to-use
ATM/PIN-based card instantly at
time of account opening.
The new Instant Issue program al-
lows clients to leave the bank with an
activated card in hand, eliminating
the need for temporary checks and
cutting a week or more off their wait
time. Where previously, clients had
to wait 7-10 business days for their
permanent, personalized VISA debit
card to arrive in the mail, clients will
now enjoy near immediate access to
their funds.
Temporary cards are linked to the
client's account and are available for


PIN-based transactions at stores and
ATMs within 24 hours of deposit or
by the next business day.
Permanent, personalized VISA
debit cards will arrive within 7-10
business days of account opening.
"In addition to security, conve-
nience and flexibility are two attri-
butes consumers now expect from
their banking institution and finan-
cial management tools," said Capital
City Bank President for the Suwan-
nee Valley area Clif Bradley. "We are
continually looking at new ways to
enhance the banking experience and
are pleased to offer the Instant Issue
solution to streamline the account
opening process and help make our
clients' lives easier."

County suspends


impact fees until


further notice


By .ohn M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Conmmis-
sion, in their November 21, 2011
meeting, directed attorney John
McPherson to draft an ordinance
to suspend impact fees in Gilchrist
County for an indefinite period of
time.
The commission, in their Decem-
ber 5, 2011 meeting, reviewed Or-
dinance 2012-02 which identified
the suspension of all impact fees in
Gilchrist County beginning Decem-
ber 5, 2011.
The ordinance states that due to a
very slow rate of growth within the
county and the collection of impact
fees, that at this time it is advisable
to suspend the collection of impact
fees until a time that the commis-
sion warrants the re-initiation of the
collection of the fees.


The commission's support of
Ordinance 2012-12 will take effect
January I, 2012, but impact fees
will no longer be charged begin-
ning December 5, 2011.
The residential impact fees were
$3,500 and the commercial fee was
a fee depending on the type and the
size of the building a permit was
being applied for.
Charlie Perez, representing the
Gilchrist County Tea Party, asked
the board if this would apply to the
proposed paving and development
of Oak Tree Landing in Gilchrist
County. Commission chairman
Tommy Langford explained that all
impact fees would be suspended.
He added that impact fees don't
necessarily relate to the paving of
roads, but are related to residential
and commercial development.


Bobby Crosby selected

Continued from page 1


ford spoke in favor of Bobby Crosby
being hired as county administrator.
Moore pointed out that Commis-
sioner Sharon Langford is the only
county commissioner with a college
degree, yet the citizens of Gilchrist
County had enough faith in the oth-
er county commissioners that they
elected them to serve.
"It has been my experience over
the years that the people of Gilchrist
County can take care of their own,"
Moore said, while encouraging the
commissioners to hire Crosby, who is
a longtime Gilchrist County resident.
Prior to making a motion to hire
Crosby as the county administrator,
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas told
everyone gathered that he has been
truly disappointed in the handful of
people in Gilchrist County who have
treated Bobby Crosby and his family
"like dirt" during the hiring process.
"It doesn't take educated people
to serve the citizens of this county,"
Thomas said. "My daddy served on
this board for 16 years, and he only
had a 9th grade education. It's not
just about someone's education. I got
a GED. but that doesn't affect how 1
serve the people of this county."
Commissioner Randy Durden
agreed with Commissioner Thomas
saying, "It's a shame that the mindset
of some is just to be mean."
Citing the negative e-mails, phone
calls, and letters he had received
regarding Crosby, Commissioner
Durden said, "I don't know when it
became a sin to hire someone from
here. I keep hearing good 'ol boy this
and good 'ol boy that. It's the most
ridiculous thing I've ever heard."
Commissioner Sharon Langford
said she too is ashamed at how out
of control the hiring of a county ad-
ministrator has gotten. Langford said
she was in favor of hiring Crosby be-
cause she feels he will be able to talk
to the people of Gilchrist County and
because he lives here.
Despite voting against Crosby,
Commissioners D. Ray Harrison Jr.
and Tommy Langford said they in-
tend to work fully with Crosby if he
is hired as county administrator and
move forward.
Tim Bennett was selected as the
number two candidate for the posi-
tion if negotiations with Crosby are
unsuccessful. Commissioner Durden
made a motion that negotiations with


Crosby begin immediately. The re-
sults of the negotiations with Crosby
will be announced in the January 3,
2012 county commission meeting.


SRWMD addresses


water resource issues


By Don Quincey, Jr., Chairman,
Suwannee River Water Management
District Governing Board
Over the past several years, the
Suwannee River Water Management
District has adapted to difficult and
changing economic times by refocus-
ing our human and financial resourc-
es solely on our core mission -water
supply, water quality, flood protec-
tion and natural resource protection.
That effort has served the District and
its citizens well.
As a diligent steward of taxpayer
dollars, the District has tightened its
belt, readjusted priorities, eliminated
non-critical staff positions, sought
outsourcing where it made sense,
downsized or cut programs that
didn't meet our core mission princi-
ples, acquired funding through grants
and partnerships, and generally found
ways to do more with less.
For example, this past year the
District completed its water supply
assessment study and designated four
water resource caution areas in an ef-
fort to ensure adequate groundwater
resources to meet future demands for
the next 20 years.
The District embarked on a joint
regional water supply plan with
neighboring St. Johns River Water
Management District to develop and
implement a minimum flows and lev-
els prevention and recovery strategy
when withdrawals in one district con-
tribute to water resource impacts in
the other district.
This landmark agreement is vital

Cedar Key to host Holiday Light


Submitted
With winter on the way, Cedar
Keys National Wildlife Refuge wants
to make your holidays a little brighter
by hosting the Holiday Light(house)
on December 10 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
Photo opportunities will be bound-
less.
Two period-dress volunteers will
interpret the history of the lighthouse
and the nigged lifestyle of the light-
keepers. Toni Collins, author of the
Cedar Key Light Station, will dress
the part of Catherine Hobday, mother
of light keeper Andrew Hobday; John
Lohde will dress as Andrew, and from
the Cedar Key Historical Society,
Ken Young and George Serevoich
will be Assistant Lightkeepers.
For the first time, holiday decora-
tions will afford exceptional photos
of the historic light station.
If you've not sent out your holiday
cards by then, you'll have a perfect
backdrop at the lighthouse, so don't
forget your camera or your coat.
The wonderful Cedar Key Histori-
cal Society wants to keep you warm,
so they'll be serving-up hot cocoa.
Our good neighbors from LARC will
be baking lighthouse cookies for ev-
eryone, too.
Transportation to the Gulf island is
not provided, but tour shuttles will be
leaving Cedar Key docks throughout
the day; special-value holiday tickets
are available.
There will be no access to the tow-
er, but you'll hear more history about
the light than you knew possible.
If the sky appears rainy or rain is


predicted, the event will be cancelled
with no rain date.
For more information, call the Ref-
uge Ranger at 352/493-0238.

tection of our rivers, lakes, springs
and natural systems.
We also strengthened our partner-
ship with the State of Georgia, where
roughly 55 percent of the Suwannee
River Basin is located.
The District has accomplished
much but there is still so much left to'
do. Fiscal challenges will not damp-
en the District's determination to "get:
the water right."
Losing our springs and other pre-
cious water resources is not an op-
tion, and with the continued support:
of the Legislature and the Department
of Environmental Protection, the Dis-
trict will continue to find innovative,
cost-effective ways to meet the needs
of its citizens while protecting our
environment.

Gilchrist County is now ready to
move on and begin to improve work-
ing relationships between Gilchrist
County employees and the residents
they serve.
I am glad that the Board of County
Commissioners have finalized their
decision for a new Gilchrist County
administrator and I was pleased to
hear the motion by Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison Jr., "The selection
has been made by a majority of this
board and now let's unite and move
forward." I was pleased to see the
commission pass this motion by a
unanimous decision.
With a new administrator will also


come some changes that have needed
to be made for some time, but the
commission has waited until a new
administrator was selected and put
into the office.
The county administrator job is a
big responsibility and with it goes a
lot of professionalism. There are a lot
of demands which occur in Gilchrist
County on any given day and the
county administrator answers to the
Gilchrist County Commission.
As Gilchrist County residents, we
all need to work together and strive
to make Gilchrist County a safe,
friendly and enjoyable place to live
and raise our families.

good deeds, Trenton's Bottom Feed-
ers were targeting their prey. Many
of the Quilters parked at Trenton's
railroad depot, and their cars were in
the shadows where Bottom Feeders
thrive. After collecting over a hun-,
dred pounds of food to help others
enjoy a Holiday meal, they returned
to their cars about 9:30 p.m. ready
to rejoin their families. Three ladies
in two vehicles had a rude surprise
waiting. Their purses had been sto-
len. One vehicle had a cinderblock
thrown through the window, and the
locks were opened on the other ve-

On November 14, 2011, the mem-
bers of Trenton Volunteer Fire De-
partment, with the help of Beyer
Auto Salvage in Trenton, learned
some new skills, and practiced some
old ones in the life saving procedures
known as "Vehicle Extrication."
With the help of Training Of-
ficer Billy Brideson, and Assistant
Chief David Peaton, the members
of Trenton Fire Department learned


and practiced the newest procedures
used to remove trapped victims from
vehicles that have been in accidents.
The members have shown their dedi-
cation in protecting the lives of City
of Trenton residents. Of course this
would not be possible without the
help of Beyer Auto Salvage at 6860
SE State Road 47. Without their help
in donating the vehicle, the training
would not be nearly as successful.


hide. Just when you think our local
Bottom Feeders can't sink any lower,
they surprise you with the depths
they can achieve.
Many of us are sick and tired of
low lile scum preying on those who
have worked hard and are trying to
benefit their neighbors. To this end,
the Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe is
offering a $500 reward for informa-
tion leading to the arrest and convic-
tion of anyone participating in these
selfish acts of violence and disdain
for their fellow man. Names of
those providing information will be
maintained in confidence. Contacts
should be made with the Trenton Po-
lice Department.
This Friday evening Trenton will
be celebrating the holidays with
Christmas on Main Street. The Bot-
tom Feeders delight in events of this
nature where people of good will
are focused on their children and
the events designed to capture their
imagination. For all those driving to
this event, please do not leave valu-
ables in your vehicles.


"Alleluia! O how the angels sang,
alleluia! How it rang! And the sky
was bright with a holy light. T'was
the birthday of a King." William Har-
old Neidlinger
A grand old Christmas celebration
is underway in Gilchrist. It seems to
me that Bell's annual Christmas Pa-
rade is better every year. The streets
were lined with people on Saturday
afternoon all set to enjoy this annual
event which kicks off our Christmas
celebration here. My hat is off to all
the volunteers who pull off this 100
plus entry parade each and every
year. Thank you for all your tireless
work. We really enjoyed it.
The celebration continues this
Friday evening in Trenton as the
Gilchrist County Chamber of Com-
merce and local merchants as well
as the City of Trenton roll out the red
carpet to welcome county residents
to come out and celebrate the season.
Our family and staff would like to in-
vite you all down to the Journal office
to share a cup of punch and a cookie
or two. We really enjoy having ev-
eryone stop by for a visit. This an-
nual Christmas on Main Street event
has grown each year and seems to be
enjoyed by all.
The following recipe is just for
some Christmas fun. I know this time
of year all the mommies and gran-
nies are on the run. We rush around
trying to pull off the best Christmas
ever and sometimes I find that I run
right past the best part of the holi-
day, spending time with my family.
1 feel that no matter how busy we are
it is always a good thing to take the
time to do at least one project with
our young children or grandchildren.
This little cookie baking project will
surely make for some wonderful
memories.
This simple cookie can be whipped
up in a flash and makes pretty good
little cookies thanks to a cake mix.
1 used a Duncan Hines Spice Cake
mix when testing the recipe. It helps
to work with cold dough and you can
combine dough scraps into a ball and
re-roll one time without affecting the
taste. These cookies are hard enough
to hang on a Christmas tree. If you

To Be Contained
(Kent Heaton)


Whenever we want to contain something, we enclose it
within a specific area. This could be fencing in property,
putting a precious item in a box or locking a door so
children will not go out. The idea is to have something
inside and limit the item under consideration. A fence is
used for a boundary established to exercise a control of
how far we desire something to be. The interesting use of
the word "contained" is used as an earlier form of where
the word "content" comes from. To be content is to build
a fence and say that is as far as our desires will be. The
content of a box is what is contained in a particular area.
Understanding the important of contentment is to
recognize the need to find containment of our desires.
The Bible is filled with admonitions for man to find his
place in life with the things that he has. So many
challenges face man when he does not want his desires to
be contained within the sphere of where God shows is
wisdom and peace. Always seeking more and more is the
drive that brings sorrow and hurt. To have enough often is
just a little bit more than what I have. We tear down the
first fence and build it a little farther over and then when
that does not satisfy we tear that fence down and build
again. Lacking contentment is good for fence building but
it does not bring peace.
"Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For
we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we
can carry nothing out. And having food and clothing,
with these we shall he content. But those who desire to
be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many
foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in
destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root
of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the
faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through


with many sorrows" (1 Timothy 6:6-10). Being content is
realizing that we take from this world what we brought in
- nothing. Containing our desires to the necessary things
of life (food and clothing) we will find happiness.
The Lord does not condemn riches but the failings that
come from being discontent with life and seeking after
more. When a man spends all his life to get ahead, he
finds in latter life he fell lar behind the true worth of life.
Wanting more is more wanting on our inner man that
brings nothing but heartache. A man interrupted a sermon
by Jesus in Luke 12 saying, "Teacher; tell my brother to
divide the inheritance with me." Jesus warned him,
"Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life
does not consist in the abundance of the things he
possesses" (Luke 12:13, 15). Ilis evil desire Ior more was
not contained in the proper way. Jesus continues with the
story of the fool who was not satisfied with his barns but
wanted to build bigger barns to keep all his stuff in. That
night he died and left it all he took none of it with him.
Ii our materialistic world of wealth and opulence we
have to have everything. The McGinis family (in the old
1930s cartoon) tried keeping up with the Joneses but to no
avail. "Let your conduct he without covetousness; he
content with such things as you have. For H HHimself
has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you'"
(HIebrews 13:5). For the Christian it is allowing the Lord
to build the fence and to be satisfied where lie put it.
Being content is to frame the heart with the grace ofiGod
and contain the desires within the love of Christ. "Not that
I speak in regard to need, fir I have learned in whatever
state I amt, to be content ... I can do all things through
Christ who strengthens 1ne" (Philippians 4:13,15).

18-1/2 ounce package of spice
cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup unsulphured molasses
Place cake mix, flour and ginger in
a mixing bowl and beat for 30 seconds
to mix dry ingredients. Add eggs, oil
and molasses. Beat for about two
minutes. Remove dough from mix-
ing bowl and wrap with plastic wrap
and chill for 2 hours or over night.
Cut dough in four pieces. While you
are working with first piece of dough
store rest of dough in fridge.
Roll dough out on floured surface
to 1/4 thickness with a well floured
rolling pen. Cut out shapes with a
well floured cookie cutter. Place gin-
gerbread men and ladies on a greased
or parchment lined cookie sheet and
bake for 10 minutes. Let cookies cool
for 5 minutes on cookie sheets and
then place on a wire cooling rack.
If you wish to decorate these
cookies it is simple to make royal
icing, Just pick up a can of Wilton
Meringue Powder at any craft store
or in the cake decorating section of
Wal-Mart. The can of meringue pow-
der comes with a good royal icing
recipe. The ingredients are meringue
powder, 1 pound box of confectioners
sugar and water.
After making icing you must keep
the bowl covered with plastic wrap
or it will begin to harden. A simple
way to decorate these cookies is to
place some icing in a zip top bag and
seal. Then cut the tip off one corer
of the bag. Squeeze icing.onto cook-
ies to form buttons and eyes on your
gingerbread people. You can sprinkle
colored sugar, sprinkles, or add tiny
silver balls to the cookies. The royal
icing acts like a glue. As it drys it be-
comes very hard.

One of the most involved 4-H
members in Gilchrist County is
Spencer Hewitt. Spencer is President
of the Spring Ridge 41-1 Club and is
also a member of the Trenton SWAT
4-1-1 Club. She is 15 years old and is
homeschooled.
Spencer does it all in 4-H!
She routinely turns in the most
record books every year, sometimes
completing over a dozen 4-H proj-
ects each year including citizenship,
sewing, cooking, dogs, veterinary
science, rabbits, chickens, heifers,
goats, entrepreneurship...the list
goes on and on!
Spencer is starting to go beyond
the project level and is incorporating
leadership into her 4-H experience.
This past year she attended 4-H LAW
(Leadership Adventure Weekend)
at 4-H Camp Ocala. She also went
to Florida 4-H Congress at the Uni-
versity of Florida where she repre-
sented Gilchrist County with a team
demonstration (with Emily Padot) on
the health risks of tobacco products.
Spencer attended Citizenship Wash-'
ington Focus, a week of leadership
education in Washington, D.C. This
year she was elected president of the
Spring Ridge club and plans to ex-
pand her leadership experiences this
year. Spencer is an active member on
the county council and always makes
sure her voice is heard during council
meetings.
For the past few years Spencer
has singlehandedly organized the
Toys for Tots toy drive for our 4-H
program. This year Gilchrist County
Senior & Veteran
Discounts A


Spencer Hewitt
4-H is also participating in Toys for
Tots, thanks to Spencer. People can
drop off toys at the Extension Office.
Spencer's wall at home looks like
a trophy room with so many ribbons,
trophies, plaques and awards certifi-
cates. However, as Spencer matures
and grows in to adulthood and the
ribbons fade and the trophies gather
dust, the life skills she has gained
through her 4-H participation will
help her to be a wonderful active citi-
zen in our community. She plans to
attend the University of Florida and
says she plans on being a 4-H exten-
sion agent. Spencer's 4-H experience
and fantastic personality will help her
succeed as an extension agent. Con-
gratulations, Spencer Hewitt, for be-
ing our 4-H member of the week!
All young people ages 5-18 regard-
less of race, gender, religion, creed
or nationality are encouraged to join
a local 4-H club, just call 352-463-

3-1 record
By Audrey Philman
The Bell Varsity Boys Basketball
team kicked off the season with a win
at home against the Oak Hall Eagles.
The boys snagged the lead in the first
quarter and remained on top the en-
tire game. Tyler Mehl who scored 15
points, Austin Bell who scored 13,
John Rowe who also scored 13, and
James Oslager who scored 3 helped
lead the boys to a 44-32 win.
Last Tuesday night Bell's game
against Mayo was the team's first
away game. The Bulldogs once again
held the lead for the entire game,
beating Mayo by a score of 46 to
30. John Rowe led the Bulldogs that
night with 16 points, while Austin
Bell scored 11, Tyler Mehl scored
9, Alec Rolling scored 8, and Talon
Rolling scored 2 respectively.
Thursday night's away game at
Dixie County High School was a
fast-paced and energetic match that
had fans on the edge of their seats!
Bell's defense stayed strong through-
out the night, letting none of Dixie's
team members score in double fig-
ures. John Rowe and Tyler Mehl each
scored 12 points that night, leading
the team to a 41 to 32 victory. Other
players' scores included Austin Bell
with 7 points, James Oslager with
5, Alec Rolling scored 3, and Talon
Rolling made 2 points.
With the Bulldogs' spirits high
from the two previous victories the
opening week, the boys were ready
to battle it out on their home court
Friday night against Hawthorne.

With the Hornets pressing hard on
the Bulldogs, the game was kept neck
and neck throughout the night. The
scorers of the night included James
Oslager with 15 points, John Rowe
with 11, Tyler Mehl and Talon Roll-
ing with 6 each, Alec Rolling with
5, and Von Woodby with 3 points
respectively. Although both teams
scored the same amount in baskets,
the Hornets pulled ahead with foul
shots, leaving the score that night at
56-46 and giving the varsity boys a
3-1 record. Although the Bulldogs
didn't win that game, they remained
determined and showed great sports-
manship to their opponents, the Haw-
thorne Hornets.
Come out and support the Bulldogs
this next week as the Branford Buc-
caneers travel to Bell on Thursday,

Ayers Health & Rehab wins SHARP award


3"; A

*r


By Carrie A. Mizell
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
Center was honored on Wednesday,
Nov. 30, as having met the require-
ments of the Consultation Safety and
Health Achievement Recognition
Program (SHARP).
Mark Leon, a safety and health
consultant for the University of
South Florida's SafetyFlorida pro-
gram, presented the Ayers staff with
the SHARP Certificate.
"This program recognizes compa-
nies that go beyond the call of duty to
create a work environment for their
employees," Leon said. "They have
provided a safe and happy work en-
vironment."
According to Leon, only a handful
of Florida companies receive this dis-
tinguished award.
While accepting the award, Jo


Bridget Mathis
Continued from page 1
on each clinic visit."
The Mathis family has watched
Bridget cry from being in so much
pain that she sometimes needed mor-
phine. They have seen her throw up
continually, have high fevers, mouth
sores and blisters on her little feet
from the chemo. They have witnessed
her receive blood transfusions and
platelets as a result of her cancer.
"Bridget has made many friends
this year and has lost many friends
due to cancer," Lisa said, "Her last
little friend to pass away was named
Journey. She and Bridget were around
the same age. Journey would come to
visit Bridget at the door of her room
because Bridget was in isolation and
could not leave her room. Journey
would go to the playroom and bring
Bridget toys and they would throw
a ball back and forth and she would
rub Bridget's baldhead and Bridget
would rub hers and whey would just
laugh, as if that was the funniest thing
ever...."
"We have to raise money to do
whatever we can to save these chil-
dren," Lisa said. "Too many have lost
their lives this year."
Bridget's grandmother recalls the
day her family was told the devastat-
ing news that Bridget had leukemia.
"Cancer, I thought. We don't get
cancer; that is for other people, not
us and especially not our 20-month-
old baby," Lisa said. "Boy, was I
wrong."
Bridget is like any other little girl;
she likes to dress up in high heel
shoes, have her nails painted and
put on makeup. She's like any other
3-year-old...except that she has can-
cer.
Please mail birthday cards to
Miss Bridget Mathis at 6698 South
State Road Hwy. 349, Branford, FL
32008.

Local radio station

changes programming


By Carrie A. Mizell
From classic country music, to
Christian contemporary, 101.7 has
local radio listeners turning up the
volume to hear what's coming next.
On October 31, the Gainesville
based radio station changed from a
classic
country 7
format
that in-
cluded
Johnny
Cash and Patsy Cline to Christian
contemporary programming.
"Classic country music appeals
to a niche audience. We feel like the
new format will have mass appeal,"
said Kevin Mangan, program direc-
tor for 101.7. "We just weren't able
to get the ratings and revenue we
needed to remain viable as a clas-
sic country station...it had run its
course."
Mangan explained that PULSE
101.7, as the station now goes by,
is patterned after Z88.3, an Orlando
based Christian radio station that
serves all of Central Florida. Ac-
cording to the Z88.3 website, the
non profit station "strives to make
Central Florida a better place to live
by providing families with a spiri-
tual anchor by keeping families in-
formed, safe and encouraged."


While there were a number of
loyal classic country followers who
weren't pleased by the station's de-
cision to change to contemporary
Christian music, Mangan said the
station has received a good response
overall to
the change
in pro-
gramming.
"With all
X7 ,,W the media
today, it's
becoming more and more difficult
to find a positive message," said
producer Kevin "Crash" Davis."At
PULSE we're almost on a mission
to deliver a radio station that is pal-
atable for everyone. It's unique, yet
much needed, prol idiin, a Christian
message that is relevant and not
boring."
According to Mangan, the ever-
popular Swap Shop with Jim Brand
will continue on Saturdays from 8
a.m. to noon.
The program director said that the
show, which averages between 150
and 175 callers, engages listeners
and serves as a link to the commu-
nity.
In 2012, Mangan said that PULSE
101.7 will be out and about in the
community striving to make a posi-
tive impact on the area it serves.

Hannah rode on the Bell Librar's parade entry.
