Arena's future


will be decided



on April 2


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
took another look at the future of
the FFA Alumni Arena during their
March 5 meeting.
County attorney John McPherson
presented a proposed ordinance
to be reviewed by the County and
the Bell and Trenton FFA Alumni
organizations.
The Commission reviewed
Ordinance 2012-05, which specifies
that the Gilchrist FFA Alumni
Association, Inc. has proposed
a donation of the rodeo arena to
Gilchrist County if the county will
commit to take certain actions in the
future. These actions include that
the area located on US 129 would
be available for public use and a
long term benefit to the residents
of Gilchrist County. This property
would be available for public use
for agriculture events, meetings,
governmental and non-profit
entities and education opportunities.
Gilchrist County will commemorate


the transfer by establishing an
annual scholarship, "FFA Alumni
Commemorative Scholarship" in the
amount of $5000. This donation by
the county will be distributed equally,
and give $2,500 each to Bell High
School FFAAlumni and Trenton High
School FFAAlumni. If either of these
organizations cease to exist in the
future, the scholarship funds would
be provided to the Gilchrist County
Educational Foundation for general
educational scholarship purposes.
The county would allow each of the
two FFA organizations the use of the
rodeo arena for a total of two events
per calendar year.
Commissioner Randy Durden
made a motion for the Commission
to submit this ordinance to the both
FFA Alumni organizations and for
this issue to be advertised for the
April 2 commission meeting for
consideration at 2 p.m. Commissioner
D. Ray Harrison, Jr. gave a second to
the motion before the commission
unanimously agreed on this issue.


A perfect game


Trenton 1st in District 6-1A


Tigers coaches and players Shannon Smith left, Darren Skawienski,
Clif Bryant, and Todd Bryant. Team members were excited following
the perfect game on Friday night.


By Todd Bryant
Trenton's ace, Darren Skawienski
threw a perfect game on Friday night,
which may be the only perfect game
ever thrown by a single pitcher at
Trenton High School. Skawienski
went seven innings without a runner
reaching first base, while striking
out six in the process, which kept
Hilliard's hitters guessing throughout
the game Friday night.
"He had command of his fastball,
curve and change up and never
got to three balls in any count
with any batter," said Coach Todd
Bryant. "Through 7 innings of work
Skawienski only threw 68 pitches."
For his outstanding performance,
Skawienski was named the
Gainesville Sun Athlete of the Week.
Offensively the Tigers only scored

one run making the game in Hilliard
even more memorable. In the first
inning Stephen Smith doubled with
a full count, Jonathan Smith bunted
him to 3rd for a sacrifice out, and
with a full count Clif Bryant singled
to centerfield to score Smith. With
some great plays in the field behind
Skawienski's pitching one run is all
the Tigers would need. There were
six good defensive plays in the game
- Stephen Smith chased down a high
pop up in left field foul territory, Ozie
Parrish and Kyle Wiggins both chased
down high pop-ups in right field foul
territory, Hunter Parrish and Cedric
Stokes both made running catches
in the outfield, and Clif Bryant made
a nice play on a bunt down the 3rd
base line to throw out a runner at first
base. The Tigers won 1-0 on the road
and were able to take first place in
the District standings improving their
overall record to 7-2, 4-0 in District
6-1A.
Hilliard came into the game 9-
1 overall with a 3-0 record in the
district. The Flashes started their ace
on the mound Gatlin and he was
very effective striking out nine Tiger
batters. Gatlin is one of the better
pitchers that Trenton has faced in
the past two years and he battled the
Tigers for seven innings.
Earlier in the week, the Tigers
traveled to PK Yonge to take on the
Blue Wave Tuesday night. PK is
now in the 2A high school baseball
classification and is no longer in
Trenton's district. Hunter Williams
started on the mound for the Tigers
and pitched his best game of the
season. Williams went five innings,
gave up four hits, four walks and
struck out two. Hunter Parrish

Hastings announces Gabriel Martin announces

candidacy for school board candidacy for Sheriff


Dear Gilchrist County,
It just makes sense that an experi-
enced classroom teacher should hold
a seat on the Gilchrist County School
Board. I am not a politician nor am
I a business person. I am however, a
mother of three elementary children
that has a "passion" for teaching.
Prior to my teaching, I worked in the
business of law and have a certifica-
tion as i legal assistant. I have been
teaching 3rd and 4th grade at Bell El-
ementary for the past 10 years.
I am an experienced teacher that
knows about the demands on the stu-
dents and our classroom teachers. I
have served on many committees.
One committee helped to lower the
fluency rate at which our students
were required to read and to be tested
on each week as a grade. This com-
mittee developed an approach to not
only teach our students to read within
an attainable and reasonable rate of


Lana Hastings
speed, but also to learn to read with
intonation and clarity.
I was also on a technology commit-
tee that was responsible for determin-
ing the areas of greatest need to dis-

As your sheriff, I pledge to serve
and protect all of the citizens of Gil-
christ County with effective law en-
forcement that respects our freedoms
as Americans. My name is Gabriel
Martin and I would like to officially
announce my candidacy as a Repub-
lican for Sheriff of Gilchrist County.
I am a lifelong resident of Gilchrist
County with my family roots going
back to the 1800s. I am a 1993 gradu-
ate of Bell High School earning Bull-
dog of the Year honors.
I have been married to my high
school sweetheart Shawna Martin, a
1992 graduate of Bell High School,
for 15 years. She has been continual-
ly employed in local enterprises since
graduating high school. We have two
children, Brooks and Sydnie, who
are currently in the Gilchrist County
School system.
I attended Middle Georgia College
in 1994 playing inside linebacker on

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


I have to say, I was pretty home-
town proud last Saturday as many
people came to Trenton to enjoy the
pretty quilts hanging all along Main
Street. I've always been proud to say
that I live in Trenton because truth-
fully some of the finest people any-
where call Trenton, Bell and Gilchrist
County home.
As luck would have it the azaleas
were in full bloom and you have to
admit Trenton never looks better
than when it's decked out in the pink
blooms of the South's favorite flow-
ers. You know those azaleas really
are easy to grow.
Several years ago we planted thirty
azaleas around the oaks in our front
yard and now they are five to six feet
high. We brought them home from
the first FFA plant sale and put them
in the ground and after watering them
on and off the first six months or so
they have been on their own ever
since.
We selected old fashioned For-
mosa because they are so hearty and
their bright pink blooms really stand
out. Other azaleas that do well in this
area are George Lindley Taber and
Pride of Mobile. All grow four to six
feet tall.
If you plan to plant azaleas this
Spring remember they like a shady
location. Space your plants at least
four feet apart as most azaleas, grow
four feet wide after several years. It
is best to dig the holes only as deep
as the pot they are in because azaleas
like to be planted high with the roots
at the very top of the plant being ex-
posed. The hole should be dug twice
as wide as the plant. Also remember
to loosen the roots before planting as
they are often. a little root bound.
It is recommended that you never
let the mulch get more then 2 to 3
inches deep. Water both foliage and
root zone weekly for the first grow-
ing season. If it has not rained, try to
give them one inch of water per week
until they become well established.
After established azaleas bloom, it
is time to trim them back if you wish
to. This is also the time to fertilize
them with a general purpose fertilizer
(12-6-6, 10-5-7 or 10-10-10). They
make specifically formulated fertil-
izer for azaleas and camellias which
is acid-forming. This special fertil-
izer runs about $1 per pound and can
be found at any garden center this
time of year. If you are an organic
gardener it is suggested that you use
cottonseed meal as fertilizer.
This information for growing aza-
leas came mostly from the folks at
Callaway Gardens.
Good luck with your gardening this


year as the early warm weather has
most gardeners gunning to get out-
side and begin planting their spring
gardens.
This week's recipe has been test-
ed by the experts. I'm telling you, I
called in the professionals to test this
sugar cookie recipe and judging by
how fast they disappeared, Allie (3)
and Gus (2) gave Me-Me's sugar
cookies a big thumbs up. The lemon
in these cookies gives them a fresh
taste. In fact they would be wonder-
ful with pastel sprinkles served at a
Easter egg hunt. By the way Easter is
only three weeks away.




1 cup butter, softened
1 3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
Zest of two lemons
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda.
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon lemon juice
2 eggs
.Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter, sugars and lemon zest
until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs one
at a time. Then add lemon juice.
In another bowl mix flour, soda and
salt. Reduce speed to low and add the
flour mixture.
Bake on a parchment lined cookie
sheet. Dip cookie batter out with a
small ice cream scoop or a heaping
tablespoon. Place cookies about two
inches apart and bake for 15 minutes.
Let cookies sit in pan for about three
minutes or so before removing to a
wire cooling rack. This recipe makes
about 3 dozen large cookies.

Now aid 7Thet
By Carrie A. Mizell


Mrs. Kathy Weaver helped Allie Claire pet her granddaughter Alaura
Brown's chicken on Friday night


"It takes a village to raise a child."
I was reminded of that Proverb on
Friday night as I tried to take notes
and shoot pictures at the fair, while
juggling my 3-year-old daughter and
4-month-old son. Oh, the excite-
ment!
In crazy, character building mo-
ments like that, it becomes obvious
who your friends are; the people who
stop what they are doing to come over
and offer to help you with your chil-
dren. There's no shame in admitting
it, my name is Carrie Ayers Mizell
and I sometimes need help with my
children! There I said it aloud and in
print.
That being said, I feel so blessed
to call this small community home
and many of its residents, my friends.
Without batting an eye, several close
friends took turns walking my baby
(who has colic) round and round the
fairgrounds. I would look up from the
picture I was taking every now and
then, and see them walking around
jiggling Whitt, while my daughter
sat in the stands with her little friends
Railee and Lois. Oh, Allie Claire
thought she was big stuff sitting with
Miss McKenzie and Miss Bachle,
both of whom already attend elemen-
tary school and are "big girls" in her
little eyes.
There is just something about the
Suwannee River Fair that brings
about a sense of camaraderie uniting
Gilchrist County families with those
from Dixie and Levy. It's a tradition
that's now 60 years old and in my
opinion, one of the best our com-
munity has to offer its youth. As I
watched Cloverbuds, who are 4-H
members age 5 to 8, wrestle rabbits
into their arms before walking into
the show ring on Friday evening,
I couldn't help but smile, thinking
it won't be long before Allie Claire
wants to show an animal at the fair.
Heaven help us all!
Even if you don't have a child, or a


grandchild showing an animal at the
fair, stop by to offer your support to
the youth of Gilchrist County as they
enter everything from a homemade
Hummingbird Cake to a 1,375-pound
fat steer! They will make you proud.

Noah's Ark
(Kent Heaton)


Noah could not have imagined how his world would
change the day the Lord came to speak with him. He
enjoyed the blessings of three sons and no doubt a
wonderful wife that supported him in the daily effort of
being faithful to Jehovah. That was not an easy task:
"Then the Lord saw that the wickedness of man was
great in the earth, and that every intent of the thoughts
of his heart was only evil continually ... the earth is
filled with violence" (Genesis 6:5,13). The patience and
long-suffering of God had ended and the time of judgment
had come upon the world. Telling Noah He would destroy
the world, instructions were given to the faithful man to
"make yourself an ark of gopher wood; make rooms in
the ark, and cover it inside and outside with pitch"
(Genesis 6:14). The dimensions and plans were given to
Noah to build this life saving ark and "thus Noah did;
according to all that God commanded him, so he did"
(Genesis 6:22).
God's grace warned Noah of the impending doom and
God's grace offered Noah and his family a means of
salvation. Noah began to build. Gathering the gopher
wood he began to lay out the framework of what would
look like a barge. The timbers were shaped into the forms
of the ark as it rose from the ground filling with various
rooms for the animals and human cargo. Rising three
stories tall and over 450 feet long and 75 feet wide, the ark
was a massive floating zoo. Noah and his family would
spend 378 days inside the ark of safety as the world about
them changed by God's judgment.
Noah was saved by God's grace. He was also saved by
what he did he built an ark. There was no way Noah
could have known of God's judgment to destroy the world


or the means to escape death without the grace of God.
Obedience led him to begin cutting timbers and framing
the shell. Godly fear daily drove him to not give up on the
project until it was completely finished (Hebrews 11:7).
Faith kept his eyes on the hope of salvation in the face of a
terrible day that was coming. With grace, love, obedience,
fear and faith "eight souls were saved through water" (1
Peter 3:20). As the water destroyed those who rebelled
against the Lord it saved those who trusted in His word.
God saved Noah because of the heart of the man. Finding
grace in the eyes of the Lord (Genesis 6:8) Noah was told
how to be saved. The example of Noah in obedience was
his unquestioned loyalty to the word of God. "Noah
walked with God" (Genesis 6:9). His manner of life was
not characterized by a heart of doubt or refusal to listen to
God's word. He wanted only to serve his Creator. Like
Abraham (who was told to offer his son Genesis 22)
Noah never questioned God. Did it really make sense to
build a box that would float? "Was there not another way
to do this, Lord? Human wisdom did not answer the call
of God; a devoted love for the will of the Lord did.
Noah had his critics but he kept on building. The world
would deride and mock him but he did what God
commanded. His trust was in the promise of God that was
yet unseen but by faith moved him with Godly fear. The
hope embraced by Noah still graces the sky today. Every
time a rainbow appears the Lord remembers a promise he
made a very long time ago to an aged saint who built an
ark (Genesis 9). Many today argue and fuss about what
God tells them to do. The rainbow tells us the story of an
ark built by the faith of one man and his family who simply
did what God ask them to do.

Spanish program offered at Trenton library


Spanish speaking workers and
their families can now get a free edu-
cation at the Gilchrist County Library
in Trenton once a week.
Instructor Amy Hunter of Three
Rivers Regional Library System
travels from Mayo to Trenton on
Thursday to teach Spanish-speaking
adults English as a second language
from 7 p.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Teaching materials for the adult ed-
ucation program are provided by the
Mexican Council, Hunter explained,
through an agreement with Three
Rivers Regional Library System.
Considered a vocational resource
for Spanish speaking individuals
living in Gilchrist County, many of
whom are migrant workers, the class-


es offer first grade to high school ed-
ucation. According to Hunter, many
of the 30 people who attended last
week's class only have a second to
third grade level education.
The classes are open to adults ages
15 and up. Children are taught in a
separate room at the library on Thurs-
day evenings.
For more information on the pro-
gram, call Amy Hunter at Three Riv-
ers Regional Library System at (386)

Bell criminal justice program


is #1 in the state


By Carrie A. Mizell
While introducing her special
guests to Trenton Rotarians on Mon-
day, Gilchrist County School Board
member Julie Thomas said the group,
"truly epitomizes what it is to be a
team."
Bell High School's Criminal Jus-
tice program floundered earlier in the
school year, when leader and advisor
Ray Stoel moved from the classroom
to an administrative position at Tren-
ton Middle High School.
To say the group of 160 criminal
justice students were lost without


their teacher would be the understate-
ment of the year, according to Brooke
Hilliard, president.
Recognizing that the students
needed him, Stoel would drive back
to Bell in the evenings after leav-
ing work at THS to practice with the
students planning to compete at the
Florida Public Service Association
Conference (FPSA).
The FPSA is a high school club for
students who are involved in study-
ing criminal justice, teacher assistance
or firefighter assistance.
Superintendent Don Thomas


moved Stoel back to the classroom
in Bell two weeks ago to help the
students cram for the state contest
last week. Out of 43 programs in the
state, the Bell students placed first!
Events included community ser-
vice, public speaking, CPR, parlia-
mentary procedure, scrapbook, fire-
arms, top gun, forensic investigation
and defense tactics.
"Our students competed in
32 events and were professional
throughout the competition," Stoel
said. "I am so proud of the job they
have done."

signed toAlachua, Levy, and Gilchrist
counties while also covering Dixie
and Lafayette counties. I have made
hundreds of felony and misdemeanor
arrests and investigated several types
of cases. I have received numerous
commendations and have twice been
awarded Trooper of the Year honors.
During my 9-year career with the
FHP I have worked directly on the
roadways assisting and protecting
Gilchrist County citizens. My expe-
rience hasn't been in a classroom or
behind a desk; it has been through di-
rect contact on a daily basis with the
citizens of Gilchrist County. I believe
by talking with thousands of citizens
of Gilchrist I have an understanding
of the problems and concerns that
plague and face our community. I
have also formed bonds with the law
enforcement personnel of Gilchrist
and the. surrounding counties and
know what difficulties they face. I
have testified and worked with the
State Attorney Offices in Gilchrist,
Levy, Dixie and Alachua and have
a working relationship with those
offices. I have assisted in investiga-
tions of fatalities, drugs, battery and
domestic violence cases. I have re-
covered missing elderly citizens and
assisted other county Sheriff's Of-
fices as back-up on calls where there
were no county officers available due
to shortages with staff.
My relationship with the surround-
ing agencies will help in coordinating
investigations with the drug epidemic
that faces Gilchrist, Levy and Dixie
counties and there needs to be con-
siderable improvement in this area.
Beyond law enforcement I have
volunteered with the Gilchrist
League (formerly SVL) in baseball
for 6 years and 4 years in football
winning numerous tournament titles
and a football league championship
going 8-0. I have coached hundreds
of children in Gilchrist County dur-
ing that time. I have also competed in
the Law Enforcement Olympics win-
ning gold medals all 3 years and cur-
rently hold the all-time bench record
of 600 lbs.
I believe Gilchrist County needs
a sheriff that can speak to the public
while leading the Sheriff's Office by
example. I will not be locked in an of-
fice, but instead be in the community
daily, on scenes and at the schools
where law enforcement is needed the
most.


Now is the time for "our" county
to ban together and elect someone
that is ready to fight for the future of
Gilchrist County. My vision as Sher-
iff of Gilchrist County is to provide
our citizens with the very highest
level of crime prevention, enforce-
ment, and protection. To achieve
these goals, I look forward to seek-
ing citizen input and participation in
developing Community Action Plans
to meet the unique needs facing each
district. I plan to meet monthly at
district precincts to discuss with you
what can be done to prevent crime,
enhance enforcement, and develop
effective emergency plans.
The cornerstones of my pledge to
you as sheriff are found in the words
community, commitment, and jus-
tice.
Community:
Highly interactive relationships
with our citizens at all levels.
Crime prevention through in-
creased patrols and quicker response
times.
Special emphasis upon protecting
the young and the elderly.
Improve and develop greater co-
operation with other state and federal
agencies.
Work more closely with law en-
forcement in surrounding counties.
Maintain accessibility with an open
door policy to learn and address your
concerns.
Commitment:
A decade of "frontline" service in
Florida's most elite law enforcement
agency.
Thousands of arrests, reports, and
investigations and most qualified due
to actual experience.
Recruit and retain the best quali-
fied personnel available.
Continuing education and profes-
sional development for staff and
community.
Justice:
Focus on serious criminal activity:
violence, theft, chemical drug manu-
facturing and distribution.
Greater emphasis upon insuring
that parolees comply with the law.
Improved "street" intelligence pre-
vents and detects crime.
Successful arrests that end in suc-
cessful prosecutions.
Entry point welcome signs that
warn against crime.
Criminals will not want to be in
Gilchrist County!

Dear Fair Booster,
As you know, this year's Suwannee River Fair and Livestock Show is just a couple
of days away. We are again working to raise funds to help buy animals that our FFA
and 4-H members will show in this year's fair. Our main goal is to help establish a
minimum sale price so the youth of our county are all supported equally. We also
support the FFA Chapters and 4-H Clubs of Gilchrist County by trying to purchase
their animals. With your gracious help, last year we were able to raise approximately
$25,000 with which we bought 40 animals. The children that benefited from the
gracious donations all left this experience with huge smiles on their faces.
Many of you mailed your check to us last year which greatly helped the fund rais-
ing process. We would sincerely appreciate it if you would again mail your check to
934 East Wade Street, Trenton, FL 32693. Please give Terry Parrish a call at (229)-

Tea Party
presents program
Submitted
Come join us on March 20 at 7
p.m. at the Trenton Community Cen-
ter, 214 S.E. 3rd Avenue, Trenton,
for this exciting evening of education
and networking with neighbors and
friends.
This month's meeting will be fast
moving, motivational and very in-
formative. Blaise Ingoglia, currently
the Vice-Chairman for the Republi-
can Party of Florida, will present his
"Government Gone Wild" program.
This will be an experience that will
cause you to stop and ask, 'Where is
our government headed?' and 'What
are they doing to us?'
Mr. Ingoglia has presented this pro-
gram around the Country, reminding
everyone that you must get involved
if we ever hope to stop this encroach-
ment of government into our daily
lives.
You will have a much better under-
standing of what irreversible damage
a 16 trillion dollar debt is having on
America. The presentation will have
you angry about the burdens being
placed on our children and grandchil-
dren and how government is piling on
the obligations to everyday citizens.
Also, retired U.S. Army Colonel,
Mike McCalister will make a presen-
tation to our tea party. Colonel Mc-
Calister is a dynamic speaker with a
plan on what it takes to improve our
country. He will be our first speaker,
so be there early.
In addition, Jay Anderson will fill
in Tea Party members on all the lat-
est news from our local region. His
views and thoughts are always worth
listening to. So bring a friend with
you and introduce them to the Gil-
christ County Tea Party.
Big government is on the rise and
both political parties are to blame.
Government Gone Wild is dedicated
to educating everyday citizens about
the dangers of big government while
motivating people to get off their
couch and get involved.

The members experienced a
"March Madness" week with a flurry
of activity starting with the member-
ship meeting held at the clubhouse
on March 8th. The Lively Lady-
bugs, (the House Committee com-
posed of chairperson Diana Harrison,
and members Donna Hayes, Myrtle
Scruggs, Sylvia Roberts and Chare-
lene Dalton), provided a scrumptious
light meal of sandwiches, salad and
desserts.,
Our guest speaker, Officer Jeff
Summers of the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission,
made an informative presentation
about our famous Suwannee River
jumping sturgeons. Jeff explained
that these jumping fish that live in
both salt and fresh water, are attracted
to the clean, unobstructed Suwannee
waterway for spawning. These
large (up to 8 feet long and over 150
pounds), long-lived (20-40 years)
fish are classified as threatened, and
not endangered, but as such they re-
main protected from fishing or injury.
The hazard of jumping sturgeons is
well recognized. Boaters on the river
from May to October must be extra
cautious. Signs along the river iden-
tify locations where large concentra-
tions of jumping sturgeons usually
gather but Jeff stressed that the best
wayto avoid injury is to go slow.
Club members discussed upcoming
.e'ents. i riluding- the Ayers brunch
(date to b'e determined) anf the Wild
Beast Feast (April 13). The Nomi-
nating Committee was appointed so
that officer elections may be held in
April, with installations to follow in
May.
Woman's Club volunteers made
ham, turkey, cheese and egg salad
sandwiches with trimmings for sale
at the Quilt Festival. In addition,
the Woman's Club sold coffee and
doughnuts to vendors and early ar-
rivers on Saturday morning from
both its Festival booth and its mobile
cart. Many members lent a helping
hand and provided financial support
to make the Club's Festival contribu-
tions successful.

What disturbs you? Long lines?
Careless drivers? Last minute change
of plans" Oddly enough. w hat we are
disturbed by can tell us (and others
a lot more about our character than
the things we overlook. Webster's
dictionary defines the word 11 to stir:
move 2'i to cause deviation: interfere
with: disrupt 3) To agitate: trouble:
perplex 4) To put out; inconvenience.
We kno%, all too well what this feels
like' I want us to dig into these defi-
nitions a bit this week and see what
we can learn regarding this natural
tendency to be disturbed...
Meanwhile, as Nehemiah leaves
Susa for Jerusalem, he runs smack
into the first hint of opposition. Never
really takes long does it? Things had
been going according to plan nicely:
the king had surely show n Nehemiah
favor in granting not only his request
to go to Jerusalem. but also to pro-
vide a military escort to ensure safe
passage, as well as timber from the
King's forest to make beams for the
gates. However, as Nehemiah came
to the region north of Judea. called
Samaria. he encountered Sanballat
the Horonite and Tobiah the Am-
monite official History tells us that
Sanballat was the governor of Sa-
maria, and Tobiah was probably the
ruler over Ammon. which was east of
Judea. The scriptures give a bit more
insight:
"'When Sanballat the Horonite and
Tobiah the Ammonite official heard
about this, they were very much
disturbed that someone had come to
promote the welfare of the Israel-
ites." (Nehemiah 2:10. NIV)
Doesn't this beg the question.
"Why?" According to the report
Nehemiah received in Chapter One
concerning the condition of the Jews
living in Jerusalem, \%hy would any-
one be disturbed that the\ were being
helped? The Old Testament Lexical
Aides offers more perspective on the
definition of disturbed: "To do e% il.
harm, be wicked: Denotes activity
contrary to God's will and an attitude
that rejects God's authority. This
characterizes those %vho lack under-
standing and deliberately plan to hurt
others, even habitually and compul-
sively." Does this description apply
to Sanballat and Tobiah? Right off
the top we can confirm their attitude
is one that rejects God's authority.
God had given Nehemiah the task of
rebuilding the wall to offer protec-
tion to the exiles living in Jerusalem.

agenda, an issue of pover. seemed to
include keeping Jerusalem weak, so
that Samaria and Ammon could keep
the upper hand.
The real question is...does this de-
scription apply to you and me? Does
God's authority disturb us when it

Does any activity we participate in

truth is "yes." We all have... or at
least thought some of these thoughts.
Earlier. I referred to these tendencies
as "natural." and they are just that.
Only the supernatural working of the
Spirit of God can align our desires
with God's and give us the mind of
Christ. This %will result in our relin-
quishing the struggle for power, so
we can wish the best for others and
cheer over their successes, instead of
being disturbed...
Because E'ery Heart Matters.

The Trenton Church of Christ invites ALL YOUNG PEOPLE to a powerful series of
Bible Studies about the life of Ricky Blackmon. The compelling story of Ricky Blackmon
(son of a preacher; on Texas death row before being executed on August 4, 1999) is vital for
all young people to see and hear. Ricky had many opportunities for good but made a decision
that would bring him in a crowd of the wrong people. Urged by his parents to change he
rejected all appeals and lived as he wanted. Fooled by sin, Ricky lived a prodigal life before
killing a man in cold blood. These lessons are about Ricky's life from Ricky's own words.
David writes in his book, "In our sessions I want you to consider with me some lessons
Ricky hoped that you would learn from his life. We call this series Letters From Death Row
because the lessons we will discuss will be drawn from Ricky's own words." Make plans for
March 30 April 1 to be part of this powerful series. Call 352-463-3796 for more
information or email kerux@bellsouth.net.
EVERYONE WELCOME!

Canning classes offered locally
Submitted by Lacie S. Harris
Spring is just around the comer and your garden soon will be producing
tons of vegetables and fruits, or you may want to take advantage of farmer's
markets, roadside stands or you-pick operations located nearby. Preserving
some of that food for use later in the year will give you great taste and good
nutrition and will also make memories for a lifetime.
Join us for a canning update. All classes will cover both pressure canning
for vegetables and boiling water canning for fruits. Sweet spreads (jams and
jellies) and pickles will also be discussed. This is for the novice as well as
the experienced. Canning recommendations have changed during the past
few years and we want you to be safe. Seating is limited and class will last
approximately 3 hours. There is a $3.00 fee for the optional workshop mate-
rials. You may pay at the door, but please bring the correct change.
Levy County classes are scheduled for Wednesday, March 21, at 1:30 p.m.

The Bell FFA Chapters have had
another busy week. We had our an-
nual FFA Plant Sale, and due to our
strong community support, it was
a great success. We had a lot of old
friends and new members of the
community come out and buy some
really nice plants while also helping
the students.
On March 6, we had our annual FFA
and 4-H Vet day. Dr. Eric Hiers from
Kanapaha Veterinary Services has
been coming out over the last several
years. Every year he comes out and
gives the students that show up free
health certificates for their animals.
This year, we had 20 beef animals
consisting of steers and heifers, two
horses and a couple of goats show up
for certificates. We want to thank Dr.
Hiers for this service to the students
of Gilchrist County. While the stu-
dents were getting their health certifi-
cates, we also washed, groomed and
weighed their animals. We worked
on showmanship and gave the ani-
mals a chance to be around a crowd
of people as a simulation of the ex-
perience they will receive during the
fair.

Haven Hospice Attic holds grand opening

in Chiefland


Submitted
The grand opening for the newest
Haven Hospice Attic was a hit. The
store opened Saturday, March 10 at
9 a.m. More than 400 people came
in and shopped, and more than 300
hotdogs were given away by Haven
Hospice. It was a. day filled with
great treasures, good food and good
laughs.
The new HavenAttic is at 112 Rod-
gers Blvd. in Chiefland. WKTK-FM,
featuring Storm Roberts, broadcasted'
onsite from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. There
was a bounce house available for the
kids, along with hot dogs, soft drinks,
cotton candy and popcorn.
"The tri-county area's support for
the Haven Attic resale store has been
overwhelming" said Haven Director
of Marketing and Communications
Susan Follick. "Kids of all ages had


a blast."
The Attic had a formal ribbon-cut-
ting ceremony with the Chiefland
Chamber of Commerce on Thursday
and a small soft-opening on Friday.
A sea of purple balloons and a sea of
smiles met the eyes walking into the.
Attic store Saturday.
"We had people come from Ft.
White, Gainesville, Crystal River -
all over," store manager Malesa Mc-
Cleery said. "Pretty much anything
that wasn't nailed down has been
wiped out."
The grand opening event was one
to remember. A plethora of great'
items were sold on Saturday. From
a motorized scooter to an adult-sized
tricycle to a full dining room set, the
Haven Attic had it all.
Due to the great success of the

in need of more donations. A Haven
Hospice Attic resale store sells gen-
tly used items like clothing, jewelry,
electronics, appliances, housewares,
furniture and more. The shelves will
quickly be restocked, however. Mc-
Cleery said that the Chiefland Attic
will be having a different sale every
week, so it will be a prime shopping
spot.
"I think we set a record today,"
Arnold Dittenber said, who has been
volunteering for Haven for 10 years.
"I literally cannot believe how much
merchandise we've moved out to-
day."
Haven even had some of its pet
therapy dogs onsite for the opening.
It added a little something extra to
the ambiance, McCleery said. A Chi-
huahua named Baby Bell was being
passed around, and a big yellow lab
was walking around as well.
All in all, the Haven Attic opening
in Chiefland was a wild success. The
store is looking forward to continued
support from the community, from
both shoppers and donators.


Lady Bulldogs
go 2 for 2
Submitted by Elli Carranza
Last week, the Lady Bulldogs
Softball team did an outstanding
job. They played against the Bron-
son Eagles on Tuesday, March 6,
and also traveled to Hawthorne to
face the Hornets Friday, March 9.
With good teamwork and strong
determination, they were able to
win both games.
When the girls faced the Bron-
son Eagles, they were off to a slow
start. How ever. by the end of the
2nd inning they were able to bring
in two runs. The Lady Bulldogs
continued to maintain the lead
throughout the rest of the game.
They scored almost every inning,
bringing in at least one run. By the
7th inning, there %was no way the
Eagles could have caught up to the
Bell girls' score. The final score
was 6-0. Bell.
After a loss to the Hawthorne
Hornets earlier in the season, the
Lads Bulldogs were eager to face
them again and come out with a
victory. Fortunately. they were
able to do just that. They rocked
the Hornet nest in a 10-0 shutout.
They played extraordinarily well
and dominated the whole game.
Congratulations to the Lady Bull-
dogs on a job well done!

Felice Swalla, our membership
chairlady, has told me that we pres-
ently have over 100 members in our

At $5 for a whole year's dues, it is
the best buy in the Tri-County. If you

the benefits.
A very special thank you to all of
the AARP Members who came to

Don Beld's Home of the Brave

Quilt Project


Submitted
Don Beld, author, historian, quil-
ter, and founder of the Home of the
Brave Quilt Project, has dedicated his
life to honoring the families of fallen
heroes. Beld will bring his mission
to Gainesville on Armed Forces Day
2012, presenting Remembering With
Honor: One Quilter Salutes the Mili-
tary and Other Fallen Heroes From
the War on Terrorism on Saturday,
May 19, 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the
Hilton University of Florida Confer-
ence Center, 1714 SW 34th Street,
Gainesville, FL 32607. View the
quilts close-up from 9:30 a.m. to 10
a.m., and 11 a.m. to noon.
With the help of groups of quilters
from all 50 states, Beld's Home of
the Brave Quilt Project hand-pieces,
hand-quilts, and gives a quilt to each
family that has lost someone in the
Iraq and Afghanistan wars. Beld has
also made remembrance quilts for
each of the major 9/11 and other ter-
rorist incidents.
Beld will take attendees on an ex-
ploration of commemorative quilt
making by showing and discussing a
series of quilts he has made. He will
talk about his work with the Home


of the Brave Quilt Project, and the
National Iraq/Afghanistan Memo-
rial Quilt Project, which currently
consists of ten quilts modeled on a
Civil War Soldier's Quilt. The Proj-
ect honors approximately 700 fallen
heroes from the Iraq and Afghanistan
wars. A recognized expert on Civil
War quilts, Beld wrote Civil War
Quilts with co-author Pam Weeks.
Their book was released in January
of 2012.
Following the morning program,

LOG CABIN QUILTERS

Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, March 8, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. It was a great day for all. Pam brought in lots of mate-
rial and craft patterns for us to see. Winnelle's "stash" of material was put
on the shelf for the quilters to use for projects for the Museum. We had
guests from Old Town for lunch. We were so pleased you came to join us
for lunch.
All of the lighthouses have been boxed up. The Florida Boys Ranch
will be getting some of the lighthouses as Winnelle wanted and her grand-
son will be getting the remaining lighthouses. We did keep a few to go in
her corner. The shelves that held the lighthouses have been taken down to
be relocated and refilled. Over the next few weeks, we will be getting the
Museum back in order.
Greg and six. young men were out on Tuesday. The\ were kept very
busy Some w ere worki ng in the kitchen, some were outside working in
the yard and the others w ere inside helping by taking down shelves, taking
the bed out of the Museum and getting things moved to Winnelle's comer
which w ill be set up next week Thanks, Lancaster.
