Marijuana grow house

busted on CR 138


By Carrie A. Mizell
An RV camper was being used
as a marijuana grow house in north
Gilchrist County, housing some 188
cannabis plants.
Just two days before Thanksgiv-
ing, investigators from the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office raided the
home of Lance Fox, which is located
at 1349 NE County Road 138.
Fox was arrested and charged with
Cultivation of Cannabis and Posses-
sion of Drug Paraphernalia after in-
vestigators discovered the marijuana
plants.
An RV camper on Fox's property
had 173 cannabis plants and 15 cloned
cannabis plants growing inside.
The plants were seized along with
grow lights, florescent lights, fans,
automatic timers, a digital scale, a
heater, marijuana growing magazines
and DVDs.
When investigators searched Fox's
home they found a plastic storage bag

with cannabis seeds inside.
In all, the marijuana plants seized
were valued at $173,000.
By Tuesday morning, Fox had post-
ed a $25,000 bond and been released
from the Gilchrist County Jail.


Tommy Langford is

new commission chair


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
elected a new chairman in their Mon-
day, Nov. 21, meeting when Tommy
Langford was elected to the position.
The board also elected Commis-
sioner Sharon Akins Langford as vice
chair.
In other business, Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison, Jr. questioned the
number of vehicles and the use of
county trucks at Hart Springs Park.
Mitchell Gentry, park manager at
Hart Springs, attended the meeting
to answer questions from the board


about the vehicle use at Hart Springs.
He explained the park has two trucks:
an SUV and an older model pickup.
The SUV is used by the manager
to travel on county business and to
pickup and drop off canoe rental us-
ers. The older model pickup is used
to haul off trash when it is picked
up around the park and at the Hart
Springs Boat Ramp.
"I am in question of the need of
two trucks at Hart Springs Park," said
Commissioner Harrison.
He pointed out the county could get

Agriculture students at Trenton
Middle-High School are raising
cane, and learning to make syrup.
Nearly 200 students, in grades
five through 12, braved the rain on
Monday to grind sugar cane, and
boil the juice to make cane syrup.
According to Heather Rucker,
ag. teacher at TMHS, the students
planted and harvested 6,000 feet
of sugar cane, doubling their cane
crop from last year.
It's the third year the ag. students
have made cane syrup and sold it
to raise money for program activi-
ties. Bottles of cane syrup will be
sold again this year and prices will
range from $3 to $8 per bottle.
Just before the Thanksgiving
break from school, ag. students cut
down the sugar cane last Monday
and began grinding the stalks last
Tuesday.
They also planted a new crop of
sugar cane for next year, since it
takes a full 12 months for the stalks
to reach maturity.
After a lenghty break, the stu-
dents returned to school on Mon-
day ready to start making syrup.
The cane was hauled off a trailer
and ground by a tractor powered
grinder that extracted the juice,
which was then boiled to make
syrup.
Gilchrist County natives Roy
Langford and his son, Alvin Lang-
ford helped the ag. students get
their start making cane syrup three
years ago. That year the students
boiled cane on the Langford family
farm. Since then, Rucker explained

them to work," Langford said.
At 78, Langford explained that
he has spent much of his life mak-
ing cane syrup. He grows six to
seven rows each year, that are 600
feet long. This year he and his son.
Alvin made 30 gallons of syrup.
Langford explained that his fam-
ily bottles syrup in anything and
everything, including a Coca-Cola
bottle.
"I give away a lot more that I
sell," Langford said.
Rucker has a number of guests
like Langford lined up to attend the
cane grinding and syrup making
this week.
"I thought it would be nice to
ask people from the community,
with a background in syrup mak-
ing, to come in each day this week
and talk with students while we're
making syrup," Rucker said.
Trenton ag. students will continue
making cane syrup through Friday.

Local Christmas CD will benefit Senior Citizens Food Pantry


By Carrie A. Mizell
Over 100 local residents recently
chimed in on a Christmas CD that
will benefit the Senior Citizens Food
Pantry of Gilchrist County.
"A Christmas for Giving" will be
released this week and available for
purchase at a cost of $5 per CD. Or-
ganized by Gilchrist County resident
Amos Philman, the CD includes 15
traditional Christmas songs and three

of the Senior

"This is a

"And I knew others would want to
help those less fortunate. We are very
blessed to be able to serve others in
the community."
Philman visited the Cruse Center in
north Gilchrist County and the Tren-
ton Community Center to record lo-
cal citizens singing Christmas music
along with the Philman Family Band.
Among the local vocalists recorded
on the CD are five generations of the
Philman family.
Copies of "A Christmas for Giv-
ing" will be available at the Gilchrist
County Chamber of Commerce 01-


lice beginning this week and will
also be sold at the Bell Christmas
Parade on Saturday and at Christmas
on Main Street, which will be Friday,
Dec. 9 in Trenton.
Philman would like to invite all
of the citizens who sang on the CD
to come on stage at the Trenton De-
pot and sing with the Philman Fam-
ily Band during Christmas on Main
Street.
The event will serve as a reunion
for all the "Gilchrist County All
Stars" who sang on the CD to help
those less fortunate during the Christ-
in;s season.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


at It's December 1st. Gracious,
ce Christmas will be here by the time we
turn around. It happens every year.
st, One day we are eating Thanksgiving
ct dinner and talking about Black Fri-
day shopping, and the next thing we
ry know, it's Christmas Eve.
b- In hopes of enjoying the real beau-
u- ty of the season a little more it is nice
he to take the time to think about and
11 remember some of the simpler joys
of this time of year. In all my rush-
Sing around I don't want to rush right
past the real celebration. What does
this season mean? What memories
do you have? Of course this is the
season where most of us celebrate the
birth of baby Jesus. During this time
set aside to celebrate His birth, as we
move along the way to Christmas
day we enjoy many simple pleasures
this time of year.
What is a Southern Christmas to
you? Is it Poinsettias a plenty, mnis-
tletoe shot down from a tree top, or
the children's Christmas program at
church?
It could be the fragrant smell of a
Fresh ax cut native Florida Red Cedar
brought home in the bed of a pick-
up truck, or the unpacking of orna-
ments made years ago by your chil-
dren while they were in elementary
school.
It could be the memory of a little
girl's gift of a pink parasol given
nearly eighty years ago or the orange,
a single peppermint stick and a cou-
ple of nuts fished out from down in
the toe of a old sock years and years
s ago that puts a smile on your face this
time of year.
7d Is it the memories of a wonderfully
Talented church choir or the Christ-
mas cantata sung years ago or maybe
ce it's just the music of Christmas, Sil-
l- ver Bells. Jingle Bells. or The Little
a, Drummer Boy.
Visiting with your friends at Christ-
-mas parties and polishing the silver
until it sparkles in preparation of the
big day might just be what brings
a warmth to your heart this time of

that warms your heart.
One thing is for sure, Christmas
here in the Suwannee River Valley
area is special to us all. We are truly
blessed to have many traditions as
well as being rooted in the history and
heritage of a Southern Christmas.
This Praline Cookie recipe or re-
ceipt as they were known years ago,
comes from the Charles Town or
Charleston area of South Carolina.
This is a very old Southern recipe.

Carolina Praline
Cookies
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup light brown sugar
I egg, well beaten
1 teaspoons pure vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
Melt butter in a sauce pan and
blend in brown sugar, egg, nuts,
flour, vanilla and mix well. Grease
a cookie sheet well or these cookies
will stick. I used a sheet of parchment
paper on a cookie sheet and it worked
well. Drop cookie batter by teaspoon
full about 5 inches apart. Bake for 10
minutes at 350 degrees. Let cookies
cool for a couple of minutes. While
they are still warm, lift cookies from
pan with spatula and cool on a wire
cake rack. Makes two dozen wafer
thin cookies. Note: Yes, it really is
only 4 tablespoons of flour. These
cookies are really thin, rich and
crispy.

LIG CHRIST COUNTY JOUR L


Learning

Kathy's All Things Learning Cen-
ter opened on November 12, 1996.
We had our first small garden in the
fall of 1998. It was a 4 x 12 ft. plot
in the corner of our play yard. We
were small in number. The only mis-
hap came about when two of our two-
year olds decided it was time to thin
the turnip and mustard plants.
Our philosophy is that children
should be taught hands on and that
their education should also include
being taught to respect life and all
living things. What better place to do
both than in a garden.
We advanced to a fenced off area
where we could control the coming
and going to arid from the garden.
We take the children in three or four
at a time with each gardening activ-
ity. Everyone from our youngest,
two-year-olds, through our school
age students has the opportunity to
participate. Rarely does a child
have to watch an activity without be-
ing able to become actively involved
in the process. All students are in-
volved in each step from preparing
the soil, planting, monitoring the
growing crop, harvesting, preparing
the food to cook, and finally, actually
eating what we have grown.
Our children have watched a grand-
parent till the garden with a gas tiller
as well as helped open rows with an
old fashioned push plow.
A typical spring garden at our cen-
ter has yellow squash, zucchini, peas,
potatoes, sweet peppers, eggplant,
tomatoes, cucumbers, and of course
our flowers.
In the fall we plant turnips, mus-
tard greens, collard greens, broccoli,
beets, radishes and cauliflower. Each
year we try to grow a new vegetable
that we are not familiar with. One
of our biggest surprises was brussels
sprouts.
We always have a bumper crop of
our favorite vegetable, potatoes, in
the summer. The day we do the pota-
toes no one wants to miss school. We
incorporated literacy into our curricu-
lum by including a read-aloud of The
Enormous Potato written by Aubrey
Davis. The students then reenacted
the story in the garden, much to their,
and our, delight.
As a math and science project
one summer our school age students
planted and harvested zucchini. The
students finished the project by fol-
lowing a recipe for zucchini bread,
baking it and then sharing the bread
with the whole center.
SWe picked yellow squash, washed
and cooked them to taste. We served
them to the students as part of their
lunch. We were pleasantly surprised
to have several children ask for sec-
onds.
We have grown, harvested and
made cucumbers into pickles as a
center project. Our broccoli and cau-
liflower with dip are always a hit dur-
ing snack-time.
We share our extra crops with our
elderly neighbors who are not able to

Count Your Many Blessings But Use Them
(Kent Heaton)


As a nation, we are blessed in measures far exceeding
the majority of people in the world. The material wealth
possessed by Americans may seem rather routine but in
most countries owning a pair of shoes is like owning a
rare jewel. Stores often are filled to the brim with an
abundance of food while most people in the world
struggle to find enough food to enjoy an adequate diet.
Johnson Oatman wrote that great hymn, "Count Your
Blessings" which renders the chorus as, "Count your
hlessings. name then one by one: count your blessings,
see what God hath done." People of God should
recognize where all blessings flow and daily be thankful
for the blessings bestowed by the heavenly Father.
The challenge of our blessings is those things we are so
thankful for can become our curse. In Luke 12 the rich
man had many things to be thankful for. Jesus spoke the
parable when lie said, "The ground of a certain rich man
yielded plentifully. And he thought within himself,
saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no room to store
my crops?' So he said, 'I will do this: I will pull down my
barns and build greater, and there I will store all mmy
crops and my goods. And I will say to my soul, 'Soul, you
have nany goods laid up for many years; take your ease;
eat, drink, and he merry.' But God said to hint, 'Fool!
This night your soul will he required of you; then whose
will those things be which you have provided?' So is ihe
who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward
Gotd" (uke 12:16-21).
The rich man could sing about the joy of counting his
blessings but the problem with the rich man was what he
did with his blessings nothing. His hardened heart for
the needs ol others closed his heart to the one who gave
him hlis wealth. I low often have we looked at our lives
and remarked :s this man, "I have many goods laid up


for many years; enjoy life and live off' the fruit of my
blessings" and never think of those in need.
In the judgment scene of Matthew 25:31-46 the
pronouncement of guilt or innocence was based solely
upon the benevolent heart of the person. Those who were
blessed were those who counted their blessings and used
them to God's glory (vv34-40). To the ones who were
condemned (and to their dismay vv41-45) the
opportunities to use their blessings for God's glory was
lost in their selfish spirit like the rich man in l.uke 12.
They counted their many blessings and kept their many
blessings to themselves.
God also offers a reality check for all of our material
blessings in the story of the rich man. When the rich man
died, the Lord said to him, "whose will those things he
which you have provided?" Solomon understood this in
Ecclesiastes 2:17-19. "Therefore I hated life because the
work that was done under the sun was distressing to me,
for all is vanity and grasping for the wind. Then I hated
all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, because
I must leave it to the man who will come after me. And
who knows whether he will be wise or a fool? Yet he will
rule over all my labor in whic't I toiled and in which I
have shown myself wise under the sun. This also is
vanity.
We should couLnt our anlilly blessings andd name them
one by one. When we finish with our inventory then we
should use our blessings bor the glory of God. "Let him
who stole steal no longer, but rather let him labor,
working with his hands what is good, that he nma, have
something to give him who has need" (liphesians 4:28).
When we die we will leave all those blessings but let us
leave our influence for good by our example.

grow their own fresh vegetables, thus
instilling another valuable lesson in
these young children.
The tomato plants are always more
popular for the worms they produce
than for the tomatoes. They are al-
ways planted right by the fence so
the children can enjoy watching
them. We have collected caterpillars
and watched them go through meta-
morphosis in bug boxes in our class-
rooms. We have butterfly releases
back into our garden of flowers.
One year we grew sunflowers that
were taller than our tallest school age
child who was standing on a six-foot
ladder. We then watched a flock of
baby red birds grow up eating the
seeds. As part of our classroom cur-
riculum, we often chart with pictures
from beginning to end the entire gar-
dening process. One of our favorites
is the cutting up of seed potatoes
through the eating of homemade
French fries.
We tried to grow corn but our
friendly squirrels harvested it before
we could. So we extended our ex-
perience by bringing in sweet corn
and letting the children shuck, silk,
and wash it. They they were treated
to corn on the cob. We had a local
farmer bring in dried corn, an antique
corn sheller and a grinder, to make
grits and meal. The children went
through the process of shucking the
corn, shelling it and watching, as
it was ground into grits and meal.
Next they sifted the meal from the
grits and washed the grits. We then
cooked them and added them to our
Thanksgiving breakfast buffet for our
families to enjoy. They were a huge
success.
We have established a butterfly
garden out in front of our school.
One summer the butterfly garden also
became the home of a neighbor's es-
caped chicken, giving us a bonus of
more science. We found a nest with
13 eggs in the garden. We watched
the mama hen sit on her eggs un-
til a wild animal made us all sad by
destroying the nest. Each morning
on the way in some of the children
would take their parents by the nest
to look. Many of them had never
seen eggs outside the egg carton, if
they were not colored for Easter.
You can only imagine the vocabu-
lary we are able to introduce: plants,
seeds, cocoon, metamorphosis, shuck,
silk, blooms, stems, pollinate, aphids,
fertilize, cultivate, harvest, hatch, and
the list goes on and on.
Gardening is a favorite ongoing ac-
tivity at Kathy's All Things. We an-
nounce milestones like planting and
harvesting days and encourage every-
one to wear their old shoes and come
prepared to enjoy some dirty fun. No
one wants to miss these days.
We are now in the process of get-
ting our ground prepared to plant our
2012 winter garden. Maybe this year
we will try Chinese Cabbage or Bok
Choy; that would be a new experi-
ence.

Letter to the

Gilchrist County

Commissioners
We were in attendance for the No-
vember 21, 2011 county commission
meeting listening, with interest, to
the four selected individuals chosen
for the position of county administra-
tor.
In our opinion, only two, Mr. Tim
Bennett and Mr. Kent Cichon, were
qualified. Their degrees and gov-
ernment work were impressive and
we felt they answered the proposed
questions with great thought. In ac-
cordance with the job posting on the
Internet, these two men certainly
meet the criteria.
Clearly, Mr. Crosby and Mr. Drig-
gers were lacking in qualifications,
and we were particularly distressed
when Mr. Crosby indicated that he
could 'shadow a friend' who is a
county manager to see how the job
is done. And three of you voted him
first in your tally! We are appalled
with your lack of judgement.
As taxpayers and residents of
Gilchrist, we would certainly hope
you have the good sense to select the
most qualified candidate for this im-
portant position and not downgrade
us as a community.
Don and Margot Alexander


Letter to the

Gilchrist County

Commissioners
1 was in attendance at the Novem-
ber 21, 2011, County Commission
meeting during the interviews with
the three chosen and one wild card
interviewees for the Chief Executive
position as County Administrator.
For those residents who are unaware
of the job posting on the internet by
Florida Crown, the following ap-
peared in the posting:
"The Commission prefers an in-
dividual who has a background in
County Administration and who is a
strong leader and manager. The in-
dividual will possess as a minimum
a Bachelor's degree or higher from a
four-year college or university with
a major in Public/Business Admin-
istration, Management, Finance or
other related field. A Master's degree
in Public/Business Administration or
a related field, an 1CMA Credentialed
Public Manager, and/or knowledge in
planning and development would be
viewed with favor." Also, "The ideal
candidate should possess at least five
years or progressively responsible
experience in management, prefer-
ably in public administration; or
any combination or education, train-
ing and/or experience equivalent to
the minimum qualifications stated
above."
I found it interesting that the Coun-
ty Administrator's job was considered
to be full time at 30 hours or more
with a salary of $75,000-$100,000
per year plus benefits. I think at least
40 hours would be considered a mini-
mum amount of time to spend on a
position as important as this one es-
pecially in light of the salary.
As you know, out of the 21 appli-
cants, 15 had Bachelors/Masters de-
grees and 8 had related government
work experience in addition to their
degrees. I question why only 2 can-
didates out of the 8 were chosen to
be interviewed, but one candidate


(high school diploma with no related
government experience) and a wild-
card candidate (GED with no related
experience) was also interviewed. I
hope you will be able to answer that
question at the December 5th meet-
ing.
Clearly, there were two well-quali-
fied candidates. Tim Bennett earned
a Bachelor's degree, some Master's
degree work, and has nine years of
government work experience. After
listening to his answers to the ques-
tions I felt confident that he could
step into the position and do an out-
standing job. Kent Cichon earned a
Master's degree and has twelve years
of government work experience. I
felt he could step into the position
and do well, but not as easily as Mr.
Bennett.
Bobby Crosby (High School di-
ploma, no experience) and wild-card
Jerry Driggers (GED, no experience)
were interviewed, but, in my estima-
tion, did poorly and should not have
been interviewed.
For some unknown reason three of
you, Durden, Thomas, and S. Lang-
ford, placed Mr. Crosby at the top
of your lists and 1 believe the voting
public in Gilchrist County would like
to know why. We will have an op-
portunity to raise that question on
December 5th. 1 also found it inter-
esting that Commissioner Harrison
placed Mr. Driggers highest on his
list while Durden, T. Langford, and
Thomas placed him last. Were none
of you paying attention to the an-
swers to the questions? I wrote down
each question and each candidate's
answers and by doing so it was clear
who the first place candidate was.
Gilchrist County residents and tax-
payers should get the most qualified
person to be the next County Admin-
istrator. Please put politics aside, do
the right thing, and give us the most
for our money.
Rosemary McDaniel


Thank you

Pete Randolph

for your

suggestion
Dear Editor,
Thank you, Mr. Randolph, for your
suggestions on a solution for the gar-
bage issue, which were printed in the
Journal last week. 1 am one of those
who is on tixed income, and I believe
your ideas are doable.
There are a few questions 1 would
like answered by the city.
1. Why are we on a long term con-
tract with one of the largest corpora-
tions in the U.S.? You know, like the
ones giving their CEO's millions in
bonuses. Also, 1 was under the im-
pression that contracts were not to
exceed the length of terms of mem-
bers.
2. Why are we not contracting with
a local company; therefore keeping
money in local coffers? In the last
meeting this idea was dismissed im-
mediately.
3. I only need pickup once a week.
Why do I have to pay for someone
who needs more pickups?
4. Why can't the water payment
deadline of the 10th of the month
be extended to 21st? You see, I re-
ceive my social security on the 3rd
Wednesday of the month; that can be
the 15th to the 21st of the month. So,
in addition to the increases they have
"slapped" on us (using Washington's

5. Why can't we have a revolving
committee of citizens interested in
money saving and growth ideas for
the city? Mr. Randolph has proven
that one brain is better than four, and
Trenton is DOA.

To Trenton Tiger Fans:
I would like to personally thank
everyone who supported the Trenton
Tiger football team this season. The
attendance in our stands has been tre-
mendous all year, especially this past
week in Jefferson County. I hope this
support carries over into next year
because I know as a player it really
means a lot. Go Tigers.

Veterans Day
Dear Editor,
Thanks so much for those that took
the time, money and effort to honor
our Veterans on 11-11-11. It started
with a delicious breakfast provided
by the Gilchrist Woman's Club at
their spacious and patriotically-
decorated clubhouse. They had an
even better turnout than last year, so
congratulations to President Cindy
Slaughter and all the ladies involved.
Next we moved on to our down-
town parade, which was small, but
mighty. Jim, Paul and I enjoyed the
time with Donnie Thorsen and his
young grandson, Colby. Thanks for
those candy treats that were thrown
our way! It's too bad more people
didn't show up, but with all the Fed-
eral, State and County buildings
closed, along with the local banks
and businesses, most of the town was
deserted; too bad!
We never made it to the Depot for
the lunch, but I would like to tell
Charlotte Pedersen and the Histori-
cal Society that sponsored it, that 1
heard raving reviews for all their ef-
forts too.
Next year I hope that it's even big-
ger and better, as more people should
take the time to honor our heroes
(both past and present) that make our
nation the best in the entire world.
Our family has tried to make it a
mission to thank a Veteran (or ac-
tive-duty service person) every time
we see a uniform, hat or hear about
someone's service to our country, for
without these brave men and women
where would we be? Just think about
it folks.
Kudos to Capital City Bank for
surprising people with their Home-
town Hero Program. The staff had
taken the time to prepare plaques,
take photos and share more goodies
to eat, not only for our Veterans, but
for other people that have served our
wonderful community.
We appreciate all of you, and may
God bless you this Thanksgiving and
always!

Now is not a good time to be a
Gilchrist County commissioner.
The pressure is on as Tommy
Langford, Sharon Langford, D. Ray
Harrison Jr., Randy Durden and Ken-
rick Thomas prepare to select a new
county administrator next Monday
afternoon.
Opinions vary, but one thing is cer-
tain; there will be no riding the fence
on this decision. Fortunately for the
residents of Gilchrist County, the
county commissioners have narrowed
their selection to what I consider to
be two outstanding candidates.
Tim Bennett currently works as
a county administrator in Allendale
County, South Carolina. A military
veteran, Bennett has over 10 years of
government experience. He also has
a bachelor's degree in aviation man-
agement and has done some course-
work in Troy State University's mas-
ters program.
If selected, Bennett would bring a
wealth of knowledge to the job in-
cluding expertise in budget cutting,
identifying alternate sources of rev-
enue, and managing employees.
If you read his application, it's easy
to see why Tim Bennett was selected
as a top choice for the job of county
administrator in Gilchrist County.
After reviewing his application, I
have just one concern, and that is his
employment history. Certainly he has
a wealth of government experience,
having worked in numerous posi-
tions over the last 10 years, from a
county's public information officer to
deputy town manager. But his track
record also shows that he has never
worked at any of these jobs more
than four years, and on average just
two years. When asked his reason for
leaving, Bennett stated over and over
again in his application "Career Ad-
vancement." This makes me wonder
if he is hired as Gilchrist County's
new county administrator, just how
long he will be here.
After all, the annual salary he is
currently earning as a county admin-
istrator in South Carolina is $71,400;
the position in Gilchrist County was
advertised at between $75,000 and
$100,000.
In contrast, Bobby Crosby has lived
in Gilchrist County for 24 years. A
Union County native, Crosby said he
has personal knowledge of the county
and a vested interest in its future.
It's true. he has no college degree.
More concerning, is that he has no
real government experience. What he
would bring to the job is many years
of experience as a small business
owner. Having worked in an admin-
istrative position for 32 years, Crosby
knows how to prepare and perform
within budgets, managing job and
employee production, controlling in-
ventories and accounting.
Both candidates have their strengths
and weaknesses. It's an interesting
choice and one I'm thankful I don't
have to make. In the end, I hope the
county commissioners choose the
candidate they truly believe will fit
Gilchrist County and its people.

school's Veteran's Day activities. The

late L.R. and Ann Thomas.
As a young boy growing up in the
early 1900s, Loyd left formal school
at an early age to help his father and
his brother work the family farm.
Times were tough, and being the sec-
ond of nine children his assistance
was well received. As time passed, his
country came calling and he served in
the United States Army during World
War II traveling to the South Pacif-
ic. His love of God and fellow man
was very evident. He was one of the
founding members of Riverside Bap-
tist Church. For years he assisted the
residents of Gilchrist County during
the elections in his service as a Poll
Worker. He was most content and
happy atop one of his many machines
as he worked pushing trees and clear-
ing land. Work was something he em-
braced and he has helped instill it in
his family. As his family mourns his
passing, they are comforted in know-
ing he is at home with our Lord and
Savior, Jesus Christ.
He is preceded in death by his wife
of 43 years, Muriel Yarbrough Thom-
as. Also preceding him in death are
his siblings, Leilon Thomas of Bell
and Velma T. Cain of Branford.

ber of Tallahassee, Wilma Hall and

In Memory of Bryan Wright
12-13-19871 11-14-2010

We awake each morning to start a new day.
But the pain of losing you never goes away.
We go about things we have to do.
And as the days pass we think of you.
We want to call you and just hear your voice.
Then we remember we have no choice.
For you are not there and now our hearts cry.
Just to see you again to tell you goodbye.
To say Bryan we love you and always will.
Someday we will see you again.
And of such stories to tell.
Until then our memories of you
we will keep near.
And we will pass them on to those who are dear.


We miss you Bryan.
We love you!
Mama, Mama II, Michelle, and Kyla

Christmas play
The Suwanee Valley Players an-
nounce their annual Christmas show
to be held on the second and third
weekends of December. This year's
production. A Little Christmas Spirit
written by Pat Cook, is produced by
special arrangement with Eldridge
Publishing Company. Like other
Pat Cook plays. A Little ChristInas
Spirit is full of humor and intrigue.
J. D. Morse 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
aInd knickknacks. He has a hard time
explaining to Nick what he's looking
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 fan-
tasy is full of humor and the holiday

tion to approve the purchase of the

ond. The Commission approved of
the purchase by a unanimous vote.
Commissioner Harrison asked
staff if an eleven-day vacation for
Park Manager Mitchell Gentry was
approved by the County Administra-
tor before the time off in October.
Commissioner Harrison was told by
staff that the paper work had been
misplaced prior to the vacation, but
new paper work had been submitted
and would be signed off on as soon
as possible.
Otter Springs Park Manager Kadie
Ogden requested the Commission to
allow Otter Springs to participate in
a Groupon offering for an Annual
Pass sales program. She explained
through the limited time internet pro-
gram, an Annual Pass would be sold
for $37.00 which is at half price of
the Annual Pass. This is the second
time the Groupon program has been
used by Otter Springs. The first time
the program sold fifty Annual Passes.
The Park Manager explained that this
program allows Otter Springs Park a
greater coverage area to attract more
people to take advantage of this beau-
tiful facility. Commissioner Harrison
gave a motion to approve the request,
and Commissioner Durden agreed
with a second. The Commission ap-
proved the request by a unanimous
vote.
Commissioner Kenrick Thomas
asked how things are coming involv-
ing the improvements of the manag-
er's residence at Otter Springs. Coun-
ty staff reported the discussion of a
new residence has involved a mobile
home for $50,000, a modular home
for $75,000 and a site built home
for $125,000. Gilchrist Clerk Joe
Gilliam told the board that Gilchrist
County would have to borrow the
money to purchase or build the resi-
dence. At this time the park manager
is residing in a very old mobile home
that has some serious repair issues,
explained Commissioner Thomas.
He explained that he was in favor of
asking the SRWMD to deed Gilchrist
County one half acre of the park
property to locate a mobile home on
the property.
Commissioner Harrison asked
if SRWMD is willing to sign the
mortgage to go into debt to buy or
construct a manager's residence on
the park property. "I'm not will-
ing to support borrowing money to
build anything on land that Gilchrist
County does not own," Harrison ex-
plained.
Kadie Ogden explained to the
board that Otter Springs Park has
turned into a 24 hours a day, seven
days a week under-taking. She ex-
plained that the use of the Otter
Springs Lodge by wedding groups
has turned into an every weekend oc-
currence. From time to time she has
to go down to the lodge and clean up
to have the rental facility ready for
the next user later that day.
Commissioner Thomas made a
motion to have the attorney contact
SRWMD to check and see if they
woulJ deed G(ilchrist County one
hall acre of property to place a new
residence on that land. Commission-
er Durden agreed with a second for
further discussion. Chairman Tommy
Langford called for a vote. Commis-
sioners Thomas and Durden voted in
favor of the motion. Commissioners
Harrison and Sharon Langford voted
against the motion, and the chairman
broke the tie when he voted in favor
of the motion. The attorney will con-
tact the SRWMD Governing board
and provide an answer to the Gilchrist
Commission in a future meeting.


Trenton's perfect season


ends in Monticello


By John M. Ayers
The Jefferson County fighting Ti-
gers will advance to the State Semi-
finals from Region 3 after defeating
the Trenton Tigers 56-19 Friday night
before a tremendous crowd of Tren-
ton Tiger fans. The fans really turned
out for this game as they traveled to
Monticello with high hopes of earn-
ing a berth in the State semi-final
game against Union County Friday
night, but it wasn't meant to be.
The Trenton Tigers battled Jeffer-
son County and were limited to 249
yards of offense as Stephen Smith
completed 10 of 18 passes throwing
for 2 touchdowns and one intercep-
tion.
This game got off to a fast start as
Jefferson's Alphonso Footman ran 65
yards for the first score of this game
on the host first offensive play. The
Trenton Tigers came right back with
a scoring drive covering 90 yards as
Jonathan Smith connected with Ste-
phen Smith for a 45 yard pass for a
score. Cedric Stokes added the ex-
tra point kick as Trenton took a 7-6
lead. Jefferson County with 6:25 re-
maining in the first period began a 5-
play drive that ended with a 33-yard
touchdown pass from quarterback
Lenorris Footman to Ladarian Smi-
ley. Footman gave the host Tigers a
14-7 lead as he dashed into the end
zone for the conversion. As the first
quarter neared the end, Brandon
Stone intercepted a Footman pass to
stall a Jefferson drive. Trenton moved
to the Jefferson County 33-yard line
but was forced to give up the football
when they fell short on fourth down.
Jefferson County executed a series
of runs and pass completions to add
to their lead as Revonte Robinson
scored on a 36 yard run. Footman
added the extra point to the host Ti-
gers' 21-7 lead. Jefferson scored on a
pass to Footman that turned into a 42-
yard foot race to give the host a 28-
7 lead with just over 6:00 left in the
first half. Jefferson had the momen-
tum as their cannon continued to fire
each time the host scored. The pub-
lic address announcer also put in his
flavor of cheer as the Jefferson fans
cheered for that "High Powered O"
to move the chains for another first
down. With 5:13 left in the first half
the host Tigers scored on a 45-yard
pass to Smiley for a 35-7 lead. With


Brandon Stone and Jonathan Smith
just minutes left in the first half the
Trenton Tigers marched the length
of the field as Brandon Stone, Cedric
Stokes and Stephen Smith combined
behind a Tiger offensive front line
to get into Jefferson's red zone with
16 seconds left in the half. On sec-
ond and goal Smith connected with
Damon Thompson in the end zone as
the senior wide receiver went down
on his knees to pull this pass in for an
incredible catch for the touchdown.
The Trenton Tiger marching band
made the trip to Monticello and pro-
vided halftime music for the Trenton
Tiger fans. The Trenton Tiger march-
ing bands' music was much more en-
tertaining than the loud rap music that
was played over the public address
system. The local fans that turned out
to support their Fighting Tigers were
enjoying the music of the evening in
Jefferson High School's Death Val-
ley.
Trenton took the opening kickoff
in the third period with an offense
prepared to drive down the field. As
the Tigers moved into Jefferson's ter-
ritory, a fumble occurred and Jeffer-
son recovered the turnover. Jefferson
on a 10-play drive scored as Foot-
man slipped into the end zone on a
3-yard run. The extra point kick gave
Jefferson a 42-13 edge with 6:21 re-
maining in the third period. Trenton
setup to drive down the field on of-
fense as they faced a second and 2 on
Jefferson's 45-yard line. A Trenton
ball carrier had the football pulled
away by a Jefferson player, and Ken-
ny Madison picked up the ball and


dashed 55 yards for the score, and the
extra point kick gave the host a 49-13
lead.
Trenton Tiger fans were on the
edge of their seats cheering for their
offense when the public address an-
nouncer told the Jefferson County
fans to get up on defense. The Tren-
ton fans roared for their OFFENSE
as they strived for yet another score.
Trenton's Stephen Smith had begun
to open up the offense as he picked
out receivers on short pass routes.
The sophomore quarterback contin-
ued to pick away at the host Tigers
defense until he found a receiver
wide open behind the Jefferson de-
fenders. Damon Thompson, the first
year senior wide receiver, was wait-
ing on the ball when he pulled it in
and ran into the end zone on a 36-
yard touchdown completion. Trenton
closed the margin to 49-19 with 1:59
remaining in the third period. Jeffer-
son returned on offense as Robinson
connected with Young on a 40-yard
completion for a score and the PAT
gave Jefferson a 59-19 lead with 1:24
remaining in the third period.
In the fourth period both teams
made several substitutions. The de-
fensives took control, as both offen-
sives were unable to establish a scor-
ing drive.
Jefferson County's 5-5 regular
season, 3-0 in District 6 1A record,
is somewhat misleading as the Tigers
have faced several larger schools and
have become a more challenging
playoff team for their efforts. Jef-
ferson County recorded 215 yards
on the ground and 230 yards in pass
receptions. The Jefferson County de-
fense limited Trenton to 249 yards of
total offense.
Jefferson County will host Union
County Friday night in the State
Class 1A semi-finals. The winner of
that game will play the winner of
Northview and Chipley for the State
finals in Orlando at the Citrus Bowl
on Friday December 9, 2011.
The Trenton Tigers under coach
Andrew Thomas and staff have com-
pleted a tremendous 11-1 season.
The 2011 Trenton Tiger team has
again set the bar on just how good the
Trenton Tigers can be as a team. This
entire team has put forth a tremen-
dous effort and has left their mark in
the athletic history at Trenton High
School.
