New Emergency Management director hired


By Carrie A. Mizell
David Peaton has been hired
as director of Gilchrist County
Emergency Management, taking
over the position from Ron Mills
who announced his retirement earlier
this year.
As the current assistant chief
with the Trenton Volunteer Fire
Department, Peaton has numerous
FEMA. certifications, as well as
certifications in CPR/First Aid
Instruction, Extrication Instruction,


Firefighter 1, National Wildlife,
Hazardous Material Operations,
First Responder, Emergency Vehicle
Operations and Safe Haven for
Newborns.
"I am very excited to start my new
job," Peaton said. "I have a passion
for public safety and I thought this
position would allow me do the most
good and help the most people in the
county."
Peaton was selected from a pool
of candidates including Ray Deen,


Gregory Turner, Daniel Boone, Sr.,
Jeremy Clements, Jerry Driggers,
Alisha Foote, Bryant Frye, David
Harris, James Hill, John Huggins,
Ron McQueen, Jodie Osborn,
Franklin Ritter, and Juan Salva. All of
the candidates for the job submitted
applications to Florida Crown
Workforce. County Administrator
Bobby Crosby then selected his top
three candidates for the position,
Ray Deen, David Peaton and
Gregory Turner, after reviewing all


applications. The top three candidates
were called in for interviews last week
and Crosby selected Peaton as his
first choice for director of emergency
management.
"Gilchrist County was fortunate to
have many qualified applicants for
the emergency manager position,"
Crosby said. "While the final
decision was quite difficult, I am
sure the county will be fortunate to
have David Peaton as its emergency
manager. We look forward to great


things from Mr. Peaton as he begins
his career with Gilchrist County."'
Peaton has worked as a correctional
officer at Lancaster Correctional
Institute since 2007 when he moved
to Gilchrist County from New Port
Richey.
His first day on the job as director
of Gilchrist County Emergency

2012, Crosby explained. The county
administrator said that Peaton's
annual salary will be $35,548.80. ,


Executive director


will leave Chamber


of Commerce


By Carrie A. Mizell
The executive' director of the
Gilohrist County Chamber of
Commerce has submitted her
resignation after accepting a job with
the American Cancer Society.
Kyle Stone has led the Chamber of
Commerce since February 20, 2008.
"I have loved every day that I have
been employed for the Chamber,"
Stone said. "I have been fortunate to
work for a supportive and generous
board of directors for the past four
years."
During her tenure as executive
director, Stone. created community-
wide events like Christmas on Main
Street and was instrumental in adding
vendors and crafts to the Suwannee
Valley Quilt & Old Time Craft
Festival. Just this past December,
Stone initiated the Decorated
Christmas Tree Contest on the
courthouse lawn.
Though she loved her job, Stone
said she could not pass on a new
opportunity with the American
Cancer Society 'because the position
includes a substantial pay increase
and benefits package, which will
provide a better way of life for her
family.


Kyle Stone
"I would just like to say thank you
to everyone for the blessings and.
support as I take on this new venture,"
Stone said.
The Chamber's Board of Directors
are currently advertising for someone
to fill the position, of executive
director. Stone's last day on the job
will be April 20.
"Kyle was a tremendous asset
to the Gilchrist County Chamber,"
said Tammy Beauchamp, Chamber
president. "She will be greatly
missed."


McDaniel will run for

County Commissioner,


District 1
'My name is Rosemary McDaniel
and it's my pleasure to announce my
candidacy for County Commissioner,
District 1.
Some people will say that be-
cause I didn't grow up in Gilchrist
County or go to school here I don't
understand a rural way of life. I was
born in Connecticut and raised in a
small rural town with a population
of 4,000. Middlefield, Connecticut,
had dairies, fruit orchards, and some
crops. Our single law enforcement
constable had a Guernsey herd and I
grew up drinking the raw milk he de-
livered to our home. There was little
crime, so his dairy operation was his
primary focus. I belonged to a 4-H
horse club and later became a 4-H
club leader. I was a Brownie Scout
leader and a Cub Scout den mother.
I do understand the rural way of life,
I value it, and I will work towards

Connecticut. I attended Middlesex
Community College in Middletown,
Connecticut, from 1970 until 1975
when I was awarded my Associate
in Science degree with High Honors
and was named an Exceptional Stu-

my degree in 1983. I attended the
University of New Haven in West
Haven, Connecticut, from 1983 to
1985 and was awarded my Masters

perserverance, and hard work was I
able to achieve my goals in higher
education. If elected to a County

pledge that I will work just as hard
for all residents and property owners
in Gilchrist County.
MANAGEMENT EXPERIENCE
I was employed by Wesleyan Uni-
versity for 23 years and retired as the
Director of Housing Operations. I

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


Every Southern family has a dump-
lin' maker, ours was my, grandmoth-
er, Idell a/k/a Shannie. She made the
most wonderful bowl of chicken and
dumplins' I've ever eaten. Shannie
dearly loved to cook and even when
she was in her 90s and no longer able
to stand at her counter and roll out
dumplins' she still loved to talk about
food and the cooking of it.
Shannie knew for years that I loved
to cook just as much as she did. We
were kindred spirits when it came to
food. So as she got older our visits
went from childhood lessons on roll-
ing out dough at her kitchen coun-
ter while standing on a stool to long
visits just talking about food and the
best way to prepare it."
Our visits in her last years, went
like this, I would arrive and sit next
to her rocker and her first words to
me were, "I'm so glad to see ya, so
tell 'me Belle, what have you cooked
good lately."
We would sit and-talk food, about
the best way to season this or that.
The conversation would continue on
to whatever fresh vegetables were in
season and she- would say, "Belle,
have I ever told you how I make
eggplant patties? They are so good,
I make them just like my mother
taught me."
Those long 'visits with Shannie
have become precious memories for
me not to mention all the generations
of cooking experience that I gained
during that time.
Through my grandmother's love
of food and her family I learned the
Southern tradition of loving your
family through food. Taking the time
to prepare a home-cooked meal is
truly worth the effort and the memo-
ries made sitting around the big fam-
ily table are to be treasured.
Once, as we sat talking about
dumplin' making, she told me that
her mother, Bessie Smith, would
make up a dough like making a bis-
cuit with the fat skimmed off the top
of the stewing chicken pot and flour.
With that conversation the seed of
one day making scratch dumplins'
was planted.
This past week I decided to try my
hand at it after finding a recipe that
described the process of dropping the'
dumplins' in the broth just like Shan-
nie had shown me so many years be-
fore.
I was right; this recipe was just
what I have been looking for. No
more rolled canned biscuits or frozen
dumplins' for our family.
I can hardly wait until Allie Claire
is old enough to stand on the stool
and roll dough out with Me-Me.


Chicken and Dumplins'

1 fat hen
(Fryer will work but it does not
have the flavor of a hen)
1 stalk of celery, cut in 3 pieces
salt and pepper to taste
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup whole milk

Cut up hen, place in large pot and
cover with Water. Add celery and salt
and pepper to taste, about 1 teaspoon
of each. Bring pot to a slow boil then
turn down heat to simmer. Cook hen
until very tender, around two hours.
If'cooking a smaller chicken br a
fryer you may only need to cook it
for a hour and a half.
About a hour or so before you
plan to serve the chicken and dump-
lins', mix the dumplin' dough. In
a medium-size bowl mix the flour
and salt; then add the milk, stirring-
to make a soft dough. Place dough
ball on a well floured counter top or
board. Knead and add flour to make a
tougher dough. (I worked my dough
until it was about as firm as a canned
biscuit). Cut dough ball in half and
roll each-half separately with a well
floured rolling pin. Roll until the
dough becomes very thin. Then cut
into dumplins' about one inch wide
by four or five inches long. Sprinkle
the dumplins' lightly with just a little
more flour and let them rest on the,
counter for 30 minutes or lay them on
a cookie sheet if you need to move
them. This is very important, don't
skip the dumplin' resting step.
Remove chicken from pot and
cool. Taste stock and adjust season-
ing to taste. You will need 5 to 6 cups
of broth for this amount of dumplins'
(I pour the broth into a large measur-
ing cup to measure and to skim off
excess cliicken fat, but be sure to
leave some fat). If you have too much
broth put it back in the pot and boil
until it reduces to the right amount. If
you are short on broth add a little wa-
ter to make the right amount. When
broth comes to a rolling boil, drop in
dumplins' one at a time. Stir as need-
ed to keep the dumplins' moving as
you add all the dumplins'. Lower the
heat and boil gently for 20 minutes.
While duniplins' are cooking re-
move the skin and bones from the
chicken. Be sure to break up extra
large pieces of breast meat. Add the
chicken meat to the dumplin' pot just
a few .minutes before serving. You
may remove the celery if you like and
if your broth doesn't have enough of
a chicken taste you can add half a
chicken bullion cube.

The Trenton High School Class of
,1977 is planning a dinner reunion for
April 20 at the home of Pat (Cribbs)
Watson and Donnie Watson. You
can contact Pat at pwatson770@aol.
corn or 386-454-3017 or Dee Dee at

turnout. We're looking forward to
seeing old friends.

Trenton High School
Alumni Reunion

Time is getting closer and we are
getting more anxious to see you all at
the next Trenton High School Alumni
reunion on Saturday, April 28, 2012,
at the Trenton Elementary Cafeteria
from 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.
We will try and eat about 12:30
p.m. after which we will have a short
program, including the roll call of
classes, and seeing who has come
from the farthest place, etc. We have
already had some folks mailing in
their reservations.
Don't forget, anyone can come;
you don't have to be a graduate of
THS. Maybe you just want to come
and eat and see who all is there that
you know. Better yet, call some of
your classmates, and arrange for sev-
eral of them to come (or all of them)
and share your class~reunion with us.
The only reason we mail invita-
tions is to remind everyone. We have
their address because they have at-
tended a reunion and left us their ad-
dress.
Everyone doesn't receive the Gil-
christ County Journal, although that
has been one of the best means of
contacting folks. We do rely a lot on
the Journal, and appreciate them put-
ting our articles in the paper.
Set aside that date, and make it a
sure thing by sending in your money
by April 15 to Diana Webb Harri-
son, 4599 SW 90th Court, Bell, FL
32619. This will enable us to make
sure we have enough food for every-
one. Thanks, and hope to see you
there.


Contacts: Ms. Diana Webb Harri-
son, 352-463- 2147, and Ms. Jennie
Lou Colson Sharp 352-493-4638.

We hope to see you there!

Comments

By John M. Ayers
I was talking to several folks over
the past week or so that have been
fishing out on the flats from Pepper-
fish Key south to Cedar Key. They all
remark that this warm, sunny April
weather is really heating things up in
the saltwater.
This past weekend Cindy Jo and I
spent the night at Suwannee to enjoy
this weather. We were privileged to be
able to see the bald eagles and some
scattered ospreys that have begun to
swoop down and pick up bait fish that
were making their way up the river
in the strong flowing incoming tide.
The manatees were also a part of the
influx with the water as the alligator
gars and several other species were
caught up in the strong tidal current.
The wind was strong out of the north-
east, but it didn't keep the river from
reaching its high mark Saturday af-
ternoon.
Cindy Jo expressed that staying
at the camp puts her into a relaxing
mode; one that she wants to watch
cooking shows and check out the old
couch. Well, this might be the case
when the wind has laid and the sand
gnats are feeding, but I'll take the
dock in hopes of catching a red fish
or maybe a mullet.
Saturday was a day to enjoy the
breezes; the wind was galling at 15
to 20 knots and the sand gnats were
only a past memory. The tide was
incoming during the morning and
didn't reach full until the middle of
the afternoon. By that time the boats
were coming back from fishing and
the river was busy.
On Friday evening I began to scat-
ter a little pellets for the fish in hopes
of catching them with my cast net on
Saturday.
The fish were biting, but the salt-
water' catfish was the species of the
day. I fished with shrimp, live bait
and even some cut bait, but the out-
come was the same. The pull was
good, but I was always disappointed
when I had to throw them back into
the water. I am the type of fisherman
that I like to eat what I catch, espe-
cially while it is fresh.
Saturday afternoon as the breezes
were beginning to lay, Cody Lang-
ford pulled up and wanted to fish.
I told him that I had fed the mullet
but hadn't been able to catch them.
Cody's skills prevailed as he cap-
tured the mullet in multiples. As we
.were preparing to leave, Cody asked,
if I wanted a mess of fish to take
home. I was tickled to say the least,
the fish were fresh and even though
I couldn't catch them, I appreciate
Cody's hospitality. The mullet in the
river are beginning to fatten some.
The fish were very good and we had
a good time at Suwannee.
On April 21, the Trenton Rotary
Club will hold their annual fishing
tournament at Suwannee Marina.
This event is fun and exciting as the
tournament benefits the youth in the
Suwannee Valley League sports pro-
gram. The event has both an inshore
and offshore division. I am looking
forward to the weekend to go to Su-
wannee and catch some fish in this
competition. For more information

call Charlie at 352-463-6613 x306.

Every Knee Shall Bow
(Kent Heaton)


The certainty of death is evident by the myriad of marble
gardens dedicated to the memories of loved ones. Death is
the unwelcomed guest in every home without exception. It
matters-not if one is rich or poor, young or old; death
embraces all. The Bible affirms this truth and adds one
more element of certainty. "And as it is appointed for
men to die once, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews
9:27). As certain as the day of death so shall all men stand
before the certainty of judgment. As' to this judgment we
find a message from God: "'As I live', says the Lord,
'Every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall
confess to God'" (Romans' 14:11).
Pride is the fuel of man's arrogance as he thinks of
himself more highly than he should. Mankind has been
able' to send instruments to far reaches of the solar system
and to plumb the deep parts of the oceans. Through
technology he has been able to bridge information at
incredible speeds and build' a vast network of unparalleled
knowledge. Nations have risen over the centuries with
might to crush other nations and today men stand upon
pedestals of perceived power believing they are without
equal in a world dominated by the exaltation of man.
Industries of wealth are led by those who have the ability,
to change the course of a financial market with the swipe
of a pen. Greatness is the mantra of our day. But there is a
day coming that will change all this.
In the song of victory over the Egyptians, Moses and the
people proclaimed, "Who is like You, 0 Lord, among the
gods? Who is like You, glorious in holiness, fearful in
praises, doing wonders'" (Exodus 15:11)? How can man
compare the greatest thing he has ever done with the
power and might of Jehovah God? In all the centuries of


man when has he ever found an answer for the first of the
realities of life: death? The answer is that no matter how
man tries to. convince himself that he can live forever he
will always die. Why is that true? Because God has
established the law that will never change (Genesis
3:22-24).
If the first reality is true (death) then the second reality is
true: "Every knee shall bow" before the Lord. The most
powerful man or woman in the world will bow the knee
before God. Riches will not change that; arrogance will not
change that; military might will not change that nothing
will change the fact that every person who has ever lived
along with every person now living and yet to live will
bow the knee before the Lord. The irony of death is that it
equalizes all men to the same level. When the Day of
Judgment comes before the great throne of the Almighty
there will only be one level field. Both knees will bow
before the Creator and Savior of the world.
C. C. Colton wrote, "Of all the marvelous works of the
Deity perhaps there is nothing that the angels behold with
such supreme astonishment as a proud man" (Lacon,
1820). The angels know that all men will bow before God.
We should learn from the word of God our true place in
this life and the life to 'come. Our daily task is to prepare
our knees for the day of judgment. The more we bow the
knee here on earth the more blessed it will be when we
bow the knee before the Great I Am. All men will bow but
only the knees of the saints will see Heaven. All men will
bow but most will bow before the Lord hearing those
terrible words, "Depart from me" (Matthew 7:13-14,
21-23). Take a good look at your knees. If you don't bow
now you will oneday!

Gilchrist County Tea Party


Meeting
Submitted
Gilchrist County Tea Party meet-
ing will be held on Tuesday, April
17, at 7:00 p.m. at the Trenton Com-
munity Center, 214 S.E. 3rd Avenue,
Trenton.
You may have heard people talking
about Sustainable Development on
TV, radio and public meetings. But
what is Sustainable Development or
the UN Agenda 21?
Gaston County, North Carolina,
leaders have made it clear they have
their guard up against "sustainable
growth". and other concepts 'they
believe will threaten American prin-
ciples.
The Republican National Commit-
tee has approved a resolution expos-
ing Agenda 21 for what it is--a dis-
regard for American freedom, private
liberties, and property rights. The
Resolution is "to heighten aware-
ness of United .Nations Agenda 21,
International Council for Local En-
vironmental (ICLE)'s initiatives' im-
pact on communities in the United
States". The action pegs Agenda 21
as a "comprehensive plan of extreme
environmentalism, social engineer-
ing and global political control." It
seeks to raise a red flag about what
the comilrissioners see as a looming
menace.
In community after community,
people are now more aware of one of
the biggest threats facing our Anreri-
can way of life--U.N. Agenda 21!
It does have a direct effect on YOU,
your property rights and personal lib-
erties! Yes, right here in Gilchrist
County!


Attend this month's meeting of the
Gilchirst County Tea Party to find
out the origins, its major programs
and how U.N. Agenda 21 is imple-
mented.
Our presenter will be Victoria
Baer, an expert on Agenda 21. She
is a Certified Paralegal, owner of an
ad agency for the past 15 years. She
managed a radio station and retired
from Post-Newsweek TV station.
She is an unpaid activist since April
2008 who speaks on how to buy gold
and silver, food storage options, the
Constitution and Agenda 21. We
have set aside the entire program just
to address this vital topic.
Please come join us and better un-
derstand this major threat to YOU.

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, April 5 at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. The sidewalk supervisors
were kept very busy with both quilts
in the frames being worked on, the
Take 5 quilt had people busy sewing
the blocks, several were sandwiching
a baby quilt together, several were
working on cutting out a Braid quilt
and we even had several working hard
just rocking in the rocking chairs.
Everyone was thrilled to be part of
something new the group working
on a shared project rather than just
working on their own projects.
Thursday's Take 5 quilt assignment
was to assemble and sew the 5 dif-
ferent blocks. The machines were
marked for quarter inch seams. After
sewing the pieces together, the seams
were again checked to make sure they
were the quarter inch. There is a
cute little gadget (a 2 inch measuring
gauge) that makes it easy to check the
seam allowance.


I'm not only learning how to make
a quilt, I'm learning about thread.
Years ago my mom made quilts with
#8 cotton thread. Today there is hand
quilt thread, heavy duty hand quilt
thread, quilt thread, "regular" thread
and the list goes on. Each quilter de-
cides what works best for them.
. Darlene is working on the baby
quilt using squares that her mom
had done years ago and Sandy, our
northern friend, is working on a braid
quilt. Darlene will be working on
lap hand quilting and Sandy will be
taking her quilt back north to work
on it there. I hope we see the finished

New ministry at
Trenton
Community
Nazarene Church
'By Barbara Leanza
Trenton Community Nazarene
Church, under the leadership of their
pastor Ed Leanza, has incorporated a
new ministry in addition to those cur-
,rently in place. The new program,
L.I.F.T., is an acronym for Living In-
tentionally Fit Together. While some
may think that this would include
only the physical aspect of one's life,
the intention of this program is to help
people live fit lifestyles in every area
-'of their lives. Classes and programs
will be offered to address not just the
physical, but also the spiritual, finan-
"cial, education, and emotional/mental
Aspects of the individual. The goal
is to provide the encouragement, in-
formation, and empowerment people
need to become more fit in their day
to day lives.
L.I.FT. coordinator, Barbara Lean-
za said that the first focus has been
on the physical aspect of fit living
"since that is what most people associ-
ate with a fit lifestyle. Currently the
women have been meeting on Tues-
day and Thursday evenings from 7 to
8 p.m. to participate in some sort of


exercise routine. Jillian MichaelsTN,
P90X 'r, walking exercises, and oth-
er selections of video programs have
been included so far. The men have
been walking in the mornings and in-
corporating some strengthening exer-
cises in the walk. We invite the com-
munity to join us for these events.
There is no cost to participate.
L.I.F.T. plans to include adding
sessions pertaining to money, health,
spiritual growth, basic home and car
maintenance, and personal develop-*
ment issues.
Please call the church office at 463-
1057 for more information. Trenton
Community Nazarene Church is lo-
cated at 2659 SW State Road 26 just

^__I_______~___~__


en. There If the book of Nehemiah were a
Sbe won. fairy tale, last week would have been
or lowest a great time for the "and they lived
centration happily ever after" ending. Verse 18
11, at this, concluded by saying "So they began
get more this good work." Doesn't that sounds
will see similar to "so the prince married the
princess, and they lived happily ever
diligently after?" All of us living in the real
practical, world know the fairy tale ends here
lunch ben- and the hard work, whether build-
rhis is for ing a wall or building a marriage, is
wo games about to begin!
ll. Put on In our context, this approaching
ready for 'difficulty is evident by the word "be-
f you will gan". Unlike our English word, the
'e enough original Hebrew translation doesn't
or e-mail. simply mean to start something.
.net. All According the Old Testament Lexi-
for 'con- cal Aids, "began" is defined by two
st for the Hebrew words, "Hazaq" and "Yad."
"Hazaq" means to "make firm,
Renee d. strengthen, support, and encourage;
to preserve" and "Yad" refers to the
physical hand and is used figurative-
q 7 ly to symbolize power or strength.
n* Those committing to the work of, re'-
-A building the wall understood that this
Sgns. was more than just a neighborhood
beautification project. This wall was
5] about preserving their heritage as the
people of God, and while their hands
would do the physical work, it was
clearly God's power that would bring
success!
Now that we are ready to move
ahead, we can be sure that anytime
ns a "good work" begins, opposition
will not be far behind. In Nehemi-
ah's case, the opposition already has
a name: Sanballat the Horonite and
T.obiah the Ammonite official. We
met them earlier when they became
aware and "very much disturbed"
) about Nehemiah' coming to help
r those living in Jerusalem. Now we
.find they have added to their number:
Geshem the Arab joins Sanballat and
"'T Tobiah in their troubled state and be-
gins to mock and ridicule the Jews by


Nehemiah #7


asking, "What is this you are doing?
Are you rebelling against the king?"
While this may seem an innocuous
question, it actually points to some
very serious history.
The book of Ezra records the ac-
count of earlier groups of exiles that
returned to the broken down city of.
Jerusalem and successfully rebuilt
the temple and restored the sacrificial
worship system. However, the work
was brought to a halt on two different
occasions when officials from sur-
rounding areas persuaded the King to
stop the rebuilding on grounds of re-
bellion. (See Ezra 4:1-5 and 4:6-22)
Nehemiah's opposition would have
been very familiar with these events
and used them to threaten the cur-
rent project. Nehemiah's response is
nothing short of fascinating:
"The God of heaven will give us
success. We his servants will start
rebuilding, but as for you, you have
no share in Jerusalem or any claim
or historic right to it." (Nehemiah
2:20)
There are a few things we need to
take note of here in dealing with op-
position in our own lives: 1) Notice
that Nehemiah refused to get tangled
into a debate., He already had the
king's permission, and blessing, to
rebuild the wall. But instead of argu-
ing the point, he gave credit to God.
Don't waste time arguing over or de-
fending what God has called you to
do with naysayers.' 2) He refused to
be intimidated and -clearly stated his
mission: the rebuilding will start!
Translation? Stay focused! 3) He ad-
dressed Sanballat, Tobiah and Gesh-
em as foreigners by reminding them
to go even farther into history and
remember that Jerusalem belonged
to the Jews. In other words,: doh't
expect everyone to be as excited as
you are about the vision or direction
God is sending you.. :they may sim-
ply have no claim to it!
Because Every Heart Matters,
Angie

Trenton Tiger baseball team

takes two wins last week


Submitted by Todd Bryant
Trenton baseball traveled to Union
County on Tuesday, April 3, to play
one of the better IA teams in the state.
Union County was 13-3 entering the
contest and was undefeated in their
district, District 7, which includes
Newberry, Baldwin, Chiefland and
Dixie County. Union started Dillon
Allen on the mound. Allen kept the
Trenton hitters off balance until the
5th inning. In the fifth Stephen Smith
doubled, Clif Bryant was intention-
ally walked, then Darren Skawienski
singled to score Smith, and Hunter
Parrish singled to score Bryant.
Trenton was up 2-0 into the top of the
7th. Skawienski pitched for Trenton
holding the Union hitters to just 4 hits
and scoreless through 6 innings. In
the bottom of the 7th Union was able
to score to make things close. The
leadoff hitter had an infield single
followed by a fielders choice ground
ball for the first out. With a runner
on 2nd Skawienski threw a wild pitch
allowing the runner to move up to
3rd. The next batter singled to make
the game 2-1. With a runner on 1st
Skawienski was able to get the next
Union hitter to ground out to short-
stop and Stephen Smith and Kyle
Wiggins ended the game with a ter-
rific 6-4-3 double play. Skawienski
got his 2nd complete game of the sea-
son and improved his record to 7-1.
Stephen Smith had 3 hits and Hunter
Parrish had' 2 hits to lead Trenton.
Trenton won the game 2-1 and im-
proved to 13-5.
On Thursday, April 5, Bell came
to Tiger field in hopes of spoiling the


Tigers' 8-0 district record but things
didn't quite go the way the Bull-
dogs had hoped. The Tigers scored
in the first inning and never looked
back. Offensively the Tigers had 9
hits. Stephen Smith was 2 for 4 with
2 runs and 2 RBIs, including a double
and a home run over the right field
wall, his first this year and his sec-
ond career home run as a Tiger. Clif
Bryant was 2 for 3 with 2 runs and 2
RBIs, Darren Skawienski was 2 for
4 with 1 run and 2 RBIs, and Ced-
ric Stokes was 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs.
Hunter Parrish started on the mound
for the Tigers going 3 innings "and
facing 10 batters. Parrish struck out
2 while walking 4 and getting a 6-4-3
double play from Stephen Smith and
Kyle Wiggins. Clif Bryant threw out
two would-be Bulldog base stealers
from the catcher position and slowed
the Bulldog running game. Parrish
gave up no runs through the first three
innings and was relieved by Hunter
Williams. Williams threw 2 innings,
striking out 1 and walking 3 while
facing 9 hitters. Williams gave up 2
hits but also held the Bulldogs score-
less. The Tigers won 10-0 in five in-
nings. Parrish improved his record to
3-1 while the Tigers improved to 9-0
in District 6 play with a 14-5 overall
record.
The Tigers played their last district
game on Monday against Hawthorne.
Then they have two upcoming games
on Thursday against Chiefland and
Saturday against Melody Christian at
Tiger Field. As always, come out and
support the Tiger baseball team.

Mr. Jack Joseph Tyson

Mr. Jack Joseph

Tyson

Mr. Jack Joseph Tyson, 90, of Ce-
dar Key, passed away peacefully, and
after an extraordinary life, on Friday,
April 6, 2012.
Jack was born in Leary, Georgia,
on November 18, 1921, and grew up
in Albany, Georgia. After completing
high school and two years at Georgia
Tech, Jack enlisted in the U. S. Army
Air Corps. At the age of twenty, Jack
entered the 322nd Bomber Group,
and was sent overseas, where he was
soon responsible for piloting the B-
26 bomber in a series of high-profile
missions over Europe during World
War II. During his service, Jack had
a number of adventures; from sleep-
ing under the wings of his stranded
bomber on the Sahara desert, to join-
ing King George and a young Queen
Elizabeth for high tea, Jack proved
himself as an exemplary airman. By'
1943, Captain Jack Tyson was the
first combat crew member to com-
plete 25 missions in the B-26 bomber
with the U.S. Army Air Force. Jack
ultimately retired from the service
with a number of commendations,
including the Distinguished Flying
Cross Air Medal with ten Oak Leaf
Clusters, the Purple Heart (awarded
for wounds he suffered in the face
from shrapnel), as well as the Eu-
ropean Theater Medal with Three
Bronze Stars.
In his personal life, Jack was mar-
ried to Catharine Gould Tyson, and
was subsequently married to Doro-
thy Aiken Tyson. His marriage to
Catharine resulted in two children:
a son, Patrick Ryan named for
his best friend and wingman, who
was lost in a combat mission and
a daughter, Catharine. After return-
ing from the service, Jack graduated
from Georgia Tech with honors with
an engineering degree, and held a


OBITUARIES


series of executive jobs, culminat-
ing in his work for Owens Illinois in
Toledo, Ohio, where he worked on a
top secret project developing materials
for surveillance aircraft and satellites.
Jack ultimately retired to Cedar Key,
Florida, where he joined the congrega-
tion at Christ Episcopal Church, and
generously volunteered his time to nu-
merous city projects his efforts were
instrumental in the development of the
city's improved water system. But
the majority of Jack's dedication was
reserved for the Cedar Key Histori-
cal Society, which held a special place
in his heart. Up until his final days,
Cedar Key residents would often see
Jack crossing the street from his home
to the museum, where he would tend
the gardens, welcome guests, and act
as a docent for the town's distinctive
history.
Jack is survived by an extensive
family, including his son, Patrick Ryan
(Pamela) Tyson; his daughter, Catha-
rine (John) Tyson Beattie; his stepsons
Richard Aiken, Robert Aiken, Stewart
Aiken, and Frazier Aiken; his grand-
children, Spencer (Diana) Beattie;
Leigh Tyson (with husband Brian Lun-
sford); Bridget Beattie (Glenn) Dren-
nen; and Elizabeth (Robert) Tyson Ta-
tigian. Great-grandchildren Amelia,
Garland, Maya, Cate, and Glenn also
survive him, as well as a number of
wonderful friends in Cedar Key, who
made his final years some of the most
extraordinary of an extraordinary life.
A graveside service will be held at
11:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 14th,
at Cedar Key Cemetery, immediately
followed by a luncheon at Christ Epis-
copal Church, located at the corner of
Hwy 24 and 5th Street, Cedar Key,
Florida.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be
made to the Cedar Key Historical So-
ciety for the benefit of Dorothy's Me-
morial Garden, P.O. Box 222, Cedar
Key, FL 32625-0222.

A movie...A marriage...A move-
ment! At work, inside burning build-
ings, Capt. Caleb Holt lives by the
old firefighter's adage: Never leave
your partner behind. At home, in
the cooling embers of his marriage,
he lives by his own rules. His job is
to rescue others. Now Caleb Holt is
ready to face his toughest job ever...
rescuing his wife's heart. One of
New York Times best-selling .novels,
Fireproof, never leave your partner
behind, based on the movie by Alex
and Stephen Kendrick is a story you
won't forget.
Also from the creators of Fireproof
is Courageous, a powerful, heroic,
entertaining, and life-changing story.
Honor begins at home is the underly-
ing theme. Four men with one call-
ing: to serve and protect experience
challenges they were not prepared
for. As law enforcement officers,
Adam Mitchell, Nathan Hayes and
their partners are confident and fo-
cused, standing up to the worst the
streets have to offer. Best-selling au-
thor Randy Alcom brings the heart-
pounding drama of the screenplay to
this inspiring novel that also includes
sub-plots, characters, and backstory
not seen in the movie.
We have both books and DVDs on
our shelves. Ask the desk for either
of them to check out.
Thanks to our volunteers and pa-
trons; without you we would not be
here.

Sturgeon returning to

Suwannee River


Submitted
They're back. Gulf sturgeon have
begun their annual migration back
into the Suwannee River. Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) officers have already re-
ported seeing the fish jump this year.
People have been injured in ac-
cidental collisions with the jumping
sturgeon. In 2011, six boaters were
hurt and 11 encounters with sturgeon
were reported. "Last season, we had
quite a few people hurt, some serious-
ly," said Maj. Roy Brown, regional
law enforcement commander for the
FWC's North Central Region, based
in Lake City. "Just one person getting
hurt is too many. We want people to
be aware the Gulf sturgeon are re-
turning to the Suwannee, and the risk
of injury to boaters does exist."
In 2006, FWC officials began.work-
ing on a public awareness campaign
to alert boaters to the risks 'of jump-
ing sturgeon. "We posted signs at
each boat ramp along the Suwannee,
explaining the risk of impacts with
these fish," Brown said. "Our officers
will be on water patrol during this pe-
riod and into the summer months in
a continued effort to educate boaters
about these jumping fish."
What's the best course of action for
avoiding a collision?
"We recommend boaters reduce
their speed to reduce the risk of im-
pact and to give people more time to
react if they do encounter a jumping
sturgeon," Brown said. "The FWC
also recommends that all boaters
wear their life jackets."
The Suwannee River appears to
support the largest viable population
of Gulf sturgeon. Biologists estimate
the annual population at 10,000-


14,000 fish, averaging approximately
40 pounds each. Adult fish spend
eight to nine months each year in the
river spawning and three to four of
the coolest months in Gulf waters.
Biologists are unsure why sturgeon
jump. Theories include that the fish
jump to communicate or as a domi-
nance display.
"I have seen these collisions re-
ferred to as 'attacks.' However, these
fish are in no way attacking when
they Jump. They are simply doing
what they have been doing for mil-
lions of years: jumping. They aren't
targeting the boaters," Brown said.
Gulf sturgeon can get quite big,
exceeding 8 feet and 200 pounds.
"They have five rows of rock-hard
scutds along their sides, back and
belly When sturgeon and boaters col-
lide, the results can be devastating,"
Brown said.
State and federal laws protect stur-
geon, just like bald eagles, panthers
and sea turtles. It is illegal to harvest
Gulf sturgeon.
To report sturgeon collisions, call
888-404-FWCC (3922). "If any-
one is involved in an incident with a
jumping sturgeon, please report it to
the FWC. With the data. received, we
can get a better overall view of where
the fish are jumping and get the word
out to the public," Brown said.

Gulf sturgeon, go to MyFWC.com/
Research and click on "Saltwater."

Ayers holds annual Egg Hunt
Submitted
Ayers welcomed Bell Elementary .
Pre-K this year to the annual Easter
Egg Hunt on the lawn.
Mrs. Deen's class, along with Mrs.
Lovett's class, readily hopped off the
bus with baskets in hand and wide
open eyes to the vast array of eggs
spread all over the lawn. .
Each child was paired with a part- w.
ner resident, the resident of course
had the job of holding the basket and
the kids got to hunt and bring them
back. Once everyone had their part-
ners picked, the race was on for that
golden egg!
The children spread out in all di-
rections and the residents readily
awaited their little partners to return
with arms full of eggs.
One child from each class got that
prize golden egg, and a pillow pet as
the prize!
Afterwards everyone sat on the
lawn for cupcakes and juice.
It is events such as these that are so
special to our residents and our com-
munity children as well. It bridges
the gap and reminds us just how im-
portant it is to reconnect our youth to
our residents.
If you are interested in becoming
a volunteer at Ayers, please contact
Angie Rexroat or Carmen Law at
362-463-7101.

The partners and children
enjoyed the Egg Hunt at Ayers.
