3 die in head-on crash near Walker's curve


By Carrie A. Mizell
No one survived a head-on col-
lision Friday night on US 129 that
stalled traffic near County Road 307.
David M. Pimental, 56, of Live Oak
was driving a 1993 Chevrolet pickup


truck north in the southbound lane
of US 129 when his vehicle struck
a 1996 Pontiac Grand Prix being
driven by Billy Ray Pumphrey, 52,
of Trenton. Pumphrey and his pas-
senger, Douglas Wayne Burns, 43, of


Newberry, were driving south on US
129 in the southbound lane when the
accident occurred at 10:22 p.m.
According to Trooper Jessie W.
Hoover of the Florida Highway Pa-
trol, Pimental's truck spun around


counter clockwise on impact and
came to a final stop facing in a south-
westerly direction on US 129. Upon
impact, Pumphrey's vehicle spun
around counter clockwise before
coming to a final stop in a northerly


direction on US 129's southbound,
grassy right of way.
Gilchrist County EMS arrived on.
scene and pronounced all three men
involved in the accident deceased.
At the time of the accident, both


drivers were reportedly wearing seat-
belts.
However, Burns, who was a pas-
senger in the Grand Prix, was not
wearing a seatbelt when the accident
occurred.

Commission considers

re-striping CR 340 ,


By John M Ayers
Gilchrist County Transportation
Superintendent Billy Cannon ad-
vised the Gilchrist County Commis-
sioners last week that County Road
340 from Rock Bluff to the Alachua
County line should be considered for
re-striping during the current fiscal
year budget.
The project is estimated at 16.5
miles.
Cannon pointed out that the lines
on CR 340 have faded and are diffi-
cult to see in bad weather conditions.
Lee Mills of Mills Engineering rec-
ommended to the Commission that
if they were considering having the
road re-striped, they should advertise
for bids based on the solid lines at .08'
cents a foot, skip lines in the center of
the road at .05 cents a foot, and side
edge white lines $425 a mile.
A motion by Commissioner D. Ray
Harrison and a second from Commis-
sioner Sharon Langford was made to
advertise for bids for the entire length
of CR 340 from Rock Bluff east to
the Alachua County line.
The Commission approved the mo-
tion by a 5-0 vote.
The County Commission also dis-
cussed the roof repair being consid-
ered for the Gilchrist County Health
Department building.
Out-of-county contractors would
perform the construction on. the


Health Department building at a re-
ported cost, of $202,524. Gilchrist
County would be required to submit
a portion of the estimated expense.
The Commission discussed the
construction of a re-roof on the coun-
ty building.
Frank Ritter, Gilchrist County
Building Inspector, reported to the
board that a new shingle roof on the
building would serve the purpose fine
and the estimated cost to Gilchrist
County should be much less than
,$100,000.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion for Gilchrist County
to advertise for bids for the re-roof of
the Gilchrist County Health Depart-
ment.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
agreed and gave a second to the mo-
tion for discussion.
The Commission asked if the in-
spector would recommend a metal
roof on this building. Ritter explained
that this building 'has so many hips
and valleys that a metal roof would
be much more expensive and difficult
to complete.
Ultimately, the County Commis-
sioners approved the motion to ad-
vertise for a shingle re-roof on the
Gilchrist County Health Department.
The legal advertisement appears
in this issue of the Gilchrist County
Journal on page 7.

Two thousand people flocked to
Main Street on Trenton Fiidli night

Commerce's 4th Annual Christmas
on Main Street celebration.
The weather was perfect as
crowds of people strolled along the
sidewAlks, stopping in at local busi-
nesses and' waiting in line for the
snow slide.
Progress Energy gave out 200 hot
dogs at last year's event quickly, so
they doubled the number of dogs to
400 this year. Little did they know,
hot dogs were a hot item Friday
night! Four hundred were report-
edly given out in just over an hour
and a half
The Gilchrist County Journal of-
fered visitors who stopped in punch
and cookies. The crowds were so
large that Journal staff had to run
to the grocery store to pick up extra
cups for the punch.
Capital City Bank was also bonm-
barded with people, many of whom
were small children hoping to sit on
Santa's knee.

Community effort cleans Suwannee


Submitted
Whenever there is a huge vol-
unteer-based project like the Great
Suwannee River Clean-up, you get
to see who the true environmental
heroes of our communities are. The
historic Suwannee is a symbol of our.
state; we have been singing the song
since we were babes. We are emo-
tionally attached and when the great
river needs us, we come in droves.
On December 3, the Lower Su-


wannee National Wildlife Refuge,
the friends of the Lower Suwannee
& Cedar Keys NWR and all their
partners cleaned the last 20 miles of
the Suwannee. The initiator of the
GSRClean-up, Current Problems' Di-
rector, Fritzi Olson, has been moved
by the community involvement along
the entire river's length. "It's so re-
warding to see conservation partners
caring for this essential waterway.
This is my dream come true."

School classes gave up their Satur-

ing computer games. The University
of Florida students from the School
of Natural Resources, the Wetlands
Club, and UF Horizons traveled over
an hour to the river's edge to pull de-
bris from its tannic waters.
Andrew Gude. Manager of the
Lower Suwannee & Cedar Keys

thanked the many volunteers. "It was
very gratifying to see the outpouring
of community support for the clean-
up by the large numbers of folks who
volunteered their time and equip-

High School graduation

rate rises to 92.4 percent


Submitted
Superintendent Don Tho(mas re
ceived an e-mail from the Depart-
ment of Education on Monday, Dec.
12, 2011.
In this e-mail, lie received infor-
mation that hlie, along with all of his
staff, had been waiting on. He smiled
as he reported to the Gilchrist (County
School Board members that the grad-
uation rate had improved from last
year's rate.
In fact, Gilchrist County is 7th in
the state (excluding Lab schools) in
the percentage of students graduated.
The 2010-2011 graduation rate
was 92.4 percent, up from 92.1 per-
cent in the 2009-2010 school year.
Janet Bradley, Director of Sec-
ondary Education, shared with the
School Board what an outstanding
job the high school guidance coun-
selors do in monitoring the progress
students make while they are in our
two high schools.
Superintendent Thomas also recog-
nized Sharon Langford for her contri-
butions toward our graduation rate.
"Mrs. Langford is faithful at fol-
lowing up on students and working
with parents to ensure that our stu-
dents attend school each and every
day," said Thomas.
Making sure our students attend
school greatly impacts their ability
to learn the skills needed to graduate.


In addition, the MIS (Management
of Information Systems) staff at the
district office as well as the data pro-
cessors in the schools scrutinize the
records to ensure we correctly report
the whereabouts of our students and
report accurate exit data for all stu-
dents. Maintaining correct data also
plays an important part in a success-
ful graduation rate.
The School Board members were
extremely pleased with the news and
are aware of all of the hard work that
goes into having a successful gradu-
ation rate.
According to the Florida Depart-
ment of Education press release,
Florida's graduation rate has risen to
its highest level ever.
"I want to commend Florida's
teachers, students, parents and school
leaders for their dedication to help-
ing their students learn and earn their
high school diplomas," said Educa-
tion Commissioner Gerard Robinson.
"As educators, we each play a sig-
nificant role in helping our students
achieve academic success, and grad-
uation rate is one critical step toward
the path to college and career."
According to Superintendent
Thomas, the next wait will be over
the School Grades for our two high
schools which are expected some-
time next week.

Kids backpack

program will

feed hungry

children
By Carrie A. Mizell
The elementary school children of
Gilchrist County who may only get
a meal at school will soon be able to
take a backpack full of food home
on the weekends thanks to a $20,000
grant.
According to Rick Weder, direc-
tor of the Senior Citizens Food Pan-
try, the J.R. Albert Foundation grant
will allow volunteers to feed hungry
children on weekends throughout the
school year.
Weder has been on cloud nine since
learning the Food Pantry received the
grant, which volunteers have been
trying to secure for six years.
As of Tuesday, Weder said the
backpack program for kids is sched-
uled to start in January 2012.
In the meantime, Weder said the
Senior Citizens Food Pantry needs
to collect backpacks that will hold 20
pounds of food.
Once the backpacks are donated,
volunteers will put food in each
backpack on Fridays, so kids can
take them home with them and have
something to eat over the weekend.
On Monday, they will give the back-
packs back to their teachers and vol-
unteers will repeat the cycle.
"We needed this program so bad
and now God has given us the money
to do it with," Weder said. "Initially,
we hope to provide food for 120 chil-
dren."
Anyone who is willing to donate
is asked to please drop off backpacks
at the Senior Citizens Food Pantry,
which is located behind Trenton City
Hall.
For more information on the back-
pack program for kids, call Rick
Weder at the Senior Citizens Food
Pantry at 463-2710.

tivities they make now will affect
them the rest of their lives. There
are several busy 4-H members in
Gilchrist County and our 4-H'er of
the week certainly is a 'Busy Bee.'
Samantha Johnson-Streit is a mem-
ber of the Busy Bees 4-H Ctub, and
she has found a way to balance her
very diverse activities. Sami is in
her 4th year as a 4-H member, and
she has excelled in the sewing proj-
ect where she has won blue ribbons
on her outfits at 4-H County Events
Day and 4-H District Events Day.
Last year Sami showed off her sing-
ing talents at the 4-H Share the Fun
Contest. She has also competed in
the cake contest and completed a
dairy project, showing her heifer at
the Suwannee River Youth Fair.
Samantha is well rounded and
stays busy outside of 4-H as well.
Sami loves to perform in the Tren-
ton Drama Club musicals and is
part of the Suwannee Valley Play-
ers. She cheered for the SVL Light-
ning for two seasons. Sami is also
very involved with activities at
Bethel Baptist Church. A fantastic
student, Sami also has a wonderful
personality.

The Christmas Story And The Wise Men
(Kent Heaton)


Twvas the week before Christmas and all through the land
Not a Bible was open in anyone's hand.
The story ofJesus is told again and again
But the truth of His birth is confused among men.

They tell of his birth in a place called a stable
His mother and father were not even able.
To find a room at a place for him at an inn'
So they settled for a manger to place the Lord in.

With shepherds around him and wise men there
The story ofJesus is told with small care.
A star is above the stable so high
As the scene oflHis birth is told in a lie.

We read of a story much changed fim this
From the words of men who tell it amiss.
They celebrate Christmas as if Christ is there*
But never see what the scriptures la hare.

The Lord was laid in a manger so soft
And the shepherds saw angels singing praises aloft.
They came and found Mary and the child in that place
And gave praises to Godfobr His wonderful grace.

But the wise men were not there nor ever would be
They saw the star in the East and made haste to see.
The one who was horn King of'the Jews
The one who would bring such wonderfid news.

"I know well that happiness is in
the little things."
John Ruskin
As Christmas draws near we are all
attending a lot more events than any
other time of year. As we go to office
parties, church functions, and family
gatherings, finger foods are in much
demand this time of year. It sure is a
fun way to eat, a red paper plate piled
high with a wide variety of treats.
The following recipes were pulled
out of my archives and are quite a
few years old. They may have been
around for a while but these recipes
have stood the test of time and are
just as good today as they were 20
years ago.
The first recipe is for a simple fruit
dip. Buy a whole pineapple with a
pretty green top. Don't cut the green
top off. Cut right down through the
middle of the green top and straight
through the center of the pineapple,
cutting it in half. Next take a small
knife and cut out the inside of the
pineapple halves to make a bowl
shape. Then cut the pineapple that
was removed into bite size pieces.
Place pineapple halves on a large
tray so that one green top is pointed
to the right and the other green top
is pointed to the left. Next fill one
half of pineapple with pieces of pine-
apple and the other half with the fol-
lowing dip. Then surround the pine-
apple halves with fresh fruit of your
choice.

mor and intrigue. J. D. Morse, played
by Andy Kidd, has been looking high
and low.for a special Christmas gift
for his grandson. Finally, as a last re-
sort he takes the advice of a flier on
his car windshield and wanders into
Nick's Emporium, an old-fashioned
store chock-full of all sorts of gifts
and knickknacks. He has a hard time
explaining to Nick, played by veteran
actor Perry Davidson. what he's look-
inF for, but finds himself falling under
the old storekeeper's spell. Just when
Morse is about to buy something.
he runs outside to chase.some kids
away from his car. When he returns.
he finds the store suddenly dark and
quiet. A policeman then shows up to
run him off because, "This place ain't
been open in 40 years!" Morse finds
a way back, not only to the store, but
to a time 40 years ago when he was
a younger man. This Yuletide fantasy
is full of humor and the holiday spirit
and makes us all wish we could find a
"Nick's Emporium" where life stands
still and we can all truly enjoy A
LITTLE CHRISTMAS SPIRIT. The
show will run Friday and Saturday at
8:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:30 p.m. at
the Chief Theatre, 25 East Park Av-
enue, Chiefland. from December 16
through the 18. Tickets are $8 for
students/seniors/military with ID and
$10 for general admission: youth 12
and under $5. For more information
please contact SVP at 352-463-ARTS
or www.svplayers.com or email us at

Pagc three e


1 8-ounce jar of marshmallow
cream
8 ounces of cream cheese, soft-
ened
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons lemon zest, optional
Mix all and chill one hour or over-
night.

The following recipe for meatballs
is really good. I know that it's sim-
pler to buy frozen meatballs but if
you have the time, homemade ones
are really better.


1 poufrd ground round beef
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1 1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 5-ounce can of evaporated milk
1 egg, beaten
3 tablespoons grated onion
Combine all ingredients and mix
well. Roll meatballs out by hand.
They should be about one inch round
when finished. Place meatballs in
greased pan and bake at 350 degrees
for 20-25 minutes. Cool. You can
*make these meatballs the night be-
fore and store them in the fridge.


1 12-ounce jar of chili sauce
1 16-ounce jar of grape jelly
Place chili sauce and grape jelly in
pot and whisk together and heat over
medium high heat until sauce begins
to boil. Place meatballs in a slow
cooker and pour sauce over the top.
Cover and keep warm in cooker until
time to serve. Note: Add teaspoon
of red pepper flakes if you want to
warm up your sauce.

Social Security

helps the homeless
By Kay Louder.
Social Security District Manager
More than half-a-million Ameri-
cans experience homelessness on
any given night. Nearly 20 percent
of them are "chronically homeless,"
meaning they are on the streets regu-
larly.
Social Security has several pro-
grams .that pay benefits to qualified
individuals, including those who are
homeless. These programs include
retirement, disability, and survivors
benefits, as well as Supplemental
Security Income (SSI). which is a
needs-based program for people who
are blind, disabled, or age 65 or older.
If you know someone who is home-
less. and you want to learn more
about how Social Security might
help, a good place to get information
is at www.socialsecurity.gov/home-
lessness.
That page includes a link to the
Spotlight on Homelessness-a website
designed to help the homeless apply
for SSI. It's available at www.so-
cialsecurity.gov/ssi/spotlights/spot-
homeless.htm.

Cooking up a good time at Ayers

Health and Rehabilitation


Submitted
At 1:30 p.m. every Saturday
afternoon at Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation a special group of
ladies meet together in the dining
room and cook up a good time. This
group is better known to us as our
'Cooking Club with Loretta.' They
come together, share recipes and
lots of fun times had in the past, and
decide what they would like to cook.
Then the fun begins.
During this time, you can smell the
deliciousness wafting from the ovens
when they cook desserts and share
with all the residents that evening
after the meal.
Other times, they plan and cook
a special meal and visit together
enjoying the meal they have prepared
in a special dining room, specially
decorated for our special ladies.
All our ladies of the Cooking Club
have been wonderful cooks most of
their lives, and we are so grateful
that we get to sample some of this
goodness from time to time.

Angie Wiggins is shown holding two of the high school sports blankets she has made.

Great Christmas gift idea:

Trenton mother makes blankets


By Carrie A. Mizell
A single mother with four chil-
dren to raise, Angie Wiggins sur-
prised even herself when she began
making blankets two years ago.
"I had a sewing machine still
in the box and no idea of how to
thread a needle," Wi.,iins said.
It wasn't until the Trenton moth-
er had a dream in which she envi-
sioned a personalized blanket that
she considered making her own.
'Wigin. recalls jumping out of
bed and sketching out her idea.
"B.iaeb.ill season was about to
start and I knew it would be cold
sitting out there watching my son's
games," Wiggins said.
The mother of four children ages
10, 12, 16 and 18, Wiggins said
she spends a lot of time at sporting
events since all four of her children
participate in local athletics.
"I talked with a friend of mine


and asked her if she thought I could
make the blanket I had dreamed
about," Wiggins recalls.
With her friend's encouragement,
Wiggins made her first blanket in
2010. The blanket was personalized,
representing all four of her children.
"I had not thought about selling
them until people started coming.up
to me at ballgames and asking me
about them," Wiggins said.
The initial interest in Wiggins'
homemade blankets has continued.
To date, Wiggins said she has made
and sold at least 30 blankets.
Blankets start at $80 and vary in
price depending on the amount of de-
tail requested. Typically, the blankets
are lap size, which is 50x50.
From ballgame orders to Face-
book requests, Wiggins has now sold
blankets to customers in 16 different
states.
Recently, she was contacted by a


North Carolina woman who lives
at Fort Bragg and requested an
Army quilt for her husband.
Since then, Wiggins said she has
contacted a wholesaler who can
provide her with true military fab-
ric to make military quilts from.
"I do more than just sports blan-
kets," Wiggins explained.
While local high school and col-
lege sports blankets are popular,
Wiggins has also made wedding
blankets and couch throw blan-
kets.
"People contact me with their
ideas and we work together from
there," Wiggins said. "I work to
make the customers just what they
want."

Have you noticed how every single
holiday commercial promises that
this is "most wonderful time of the
year?" Now. don't get me wrong, 1
love the holidays, but rarely does the
real world always live up to those
promises. What about those years
we must face Christmas without a
loved one because of death, conflict-
ing schedules, unresolved conflict or
even divorce, or maybe just too many
miles. Any of these can leave us feel-
ing discouraged and wondering how
in the world to cope. I think Mary
and Joseph knew a little bit about
that....
"So .oseph also went up from the
town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea,
to Bethlehem the town of David be-
cause he belonged to the house and
line of David. He went there to reg-
ister with Mary, who was pledged to
be married to him and was expecting
a child. While they were there, the
time came for the baby to be born,


and she gave birth to her first-born,
a son. She wrapped him in cloths
and placed him in a manger, because
there was no room for them in the
inn." Luke 2:4-7
About that first labor pain, Mary
had to be thinking, "This is not how
it was supposed to be!" Those pretty
Nativity scenes we set up each year
are wonderful, decorations, but the
real deal was dirty and smelly! Sure-
ly Mary didn't have this in mind...in-
stead of a soft, clean bed, she gave
birth on the floor of a stable. Instead
of her mother and other women tend-
ing to her, she was alone with Joseph,
who was no doubt as overwhelmed
as she was! Instead of a cradle to
lay her son, she placed him in a feed
trough...
But do you remember those shep-
herds who came to see the baby Je-
sus? Consider the fact that if Mary
and Joseph had been anywhere else,
they would have missed it. Shep-


herds were not exactly high on the
social ladder, but God chose them be
the first witnesses of the birth of his
Son! Who better to understand the
amazing truth that God had just pro-
vided the perfect "Lamb" that would
one day be the sacrifice to take away
the sins of the world?
Could it be that when we feel like
there is no room for us someplace, it
is because God has made room for us
,somewhere else? Try this perspec-
tive when dealing with holiday plans
for your family: if someone can't
be there, for whatever reason, look
around and see who that makes room
for...and if something causes you to'
miss family celebrations, look around
to see where God is making room for
you. Celebration is ultimately up to
us, and the attitude we choose to take.
Our plans may not work out exactly
like we hoped...but it could be that
God has something extra special in
mind this year...
