Parents want 5th


grade to move back


to TES


By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist' County School Board
members will soon decide if moving
5th grade from Trenton Middle/High
School back to Trenton Elementary
School in time for the 2012-2013
School Year is a good idea.
Going off the opinion of parents
who attended a public workshop held
last week on the issue, the community
is in support of the move.
"I think moving the 5th grade back
is a wonderful idea!" said Samantha
Davis, a Trenton parent. "I was ready
to send my daughter to Bell."
Davis explained that her daughter
has a late birthday in August and
will therefore be one of the youngest
students in 5th grade. She said an
extra year at the elementary school,

if the 5th grade returns, will give
her daughter the time she needs to
mature before entering the middle/
high school setting on the TM/HS
campus. If the school board decides
to keep 5th grade at the middle/high
school, then Davis said she would
transfer her daughter to Bell so that
she can remain in an elementary
school setting.
Davis was not the only one who
told Gilchrist County School District
officials that the 5th grade should
return to the elementary school
campus.
Fifth grade teacher Alina DeWein
said she thinks the move would be
beneficial because fifth grade students
would be able to have wheel time on
the computer and they would be able
to attend Accelerated Reader nights
at the elementary school.
"I think coming back here would
be a safe haven for them," DeWein
said.
Kim Lander, who also teaches 5th
grade, said that the Trenton Middle/
High School administration has done
an excellent job in keeping the 5th
grade students separated from the
middle-high school students on the
TM/HS campus, but she feels the
students would have better access
to library materials at their grade
level if they were moved back to the
elementary school.
Currently, there are 705 students
enrolled at Trenton Elementary
School, and 108 students in the 5th
grade at TM/HS.
As one parent, John Frazier
pointed out, the decision to move the
5th grade to the middle/high school
was supposedly made because of an
increase in students entering the 5th

Delicious food, fellowship with
friends and the chance to raise
scholarship money for local high
school seniors drew over 1,200
people to the Gilchrist County FFA
Alumni Arena on Friday night for
the 19th Annual Wild Beast Feast.
Tiffany Turner, secretary for the
Education Foundation of Gilchrist
County, said that, as of Monday,
over $22,000 in profit had been
generated through this year's Wild
Beast Feast.
Monies raised at the event were
up from 2011, when the Wild Beast
Feast generated just over $16,000
for the Education Foundation.
Along with annual Walk-a-thon,
the Wild Beast Feast is a primary
fundraiser for the Education
Foundation of Gilchrist County,
which awards scholarships to
graduating high school seniors and
mini-grants to Gilchrist County
teachers.
As of Monday, Turner said she

County accepts rodeo arena donation


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist. County
Commissioners voted unanimously
on Monday to accept a donation by
the Gilchrist County FFA Alumni
Association of the rodeo arena.'
In adopting Ordinance 2012-05,
the Gilchrist County Commissioners
approved the donation of the arena,
which will now be used for public
purposes such as agricultural and
educational events, and as meeting
and event space for public or private
entities.
The county commissioners believe
that having the rodeo arena, which is
located on US 129, between Trenton
and Bell, available for public use
will be a long-term benefit to county
residents.
According to Article III of
Ordinance 2012-05, the Gilchrist
County Commission will
commemorate the transfer by
establishing an annual scholarship
in the amount of $5,000 to be named
the "FFA Alumni Commemorative
Scholarship." The scholarship
will be distributed in equal $2,500
amounts to the Bell High School


FFA Alumni and the Trenton High
School FFA Alumni. In the event
that either alumni ceases to exist, the
scholarship funds shall be provided
to the Gilchrist County Education
Foundation for general education
scholarship purposes.
Part of the agreement also calls
for the county commission to allow
the Trenton FFA Alumni and/or the
Bell FFA Alumni- to use the rodeo
arena for a total of two events during
each calendar year at no charge. Each
event may be up to 7 days in length.
According to a certified appraisal
done by Brad Smith on the alumni
arena in February 2010, the facility is
valued at $515,000, which includes 9
acres of land, a 40,000 sq. ft. covered
arena and a 2,400 sq. ft. concrete
concession building.
Based on the daily and event
rental, minimum cost to government
and non-profit entities will be $100/
day to cover utilities and upkeep and
$400/day for other events.
In 2011, the Gilchrist County
FFA Alumni Association took in
$4,125.00 in revenue based on the 11


days the facility was rented at a cost
of $375 per rental.
Frank Ritter, Gilchrist County's
building official, submitted an
estimate of building, structural and
electrical improvements that need to
be made at the facility before it can
be rented.
Those repairs include bringing the
press box stairs and guardrail height
up to code, making the restrooms
handicap accessible and repairing
the mail electrical service needs. A
projected cost for these repairs has
been estimated at $2,400.
The countycommissionwasadvised
on Monday that a total of $12,200.00
will be the first year expenditures
associated with rodeo arena. Those
expenditures include a $1,200 utilities
cost, which is based current records
at a cost of $100/month. Insurance
at $2,600, based on a quote from
the Gilchrist County Commission's
current insurance provider, a $1,000
custodial cost, which will be for
cleaning the restrooms during and
after events. The $2,400 maintenance
expense will bring the facility to code


before it can be rented and $5,000 to
fund scholarships. On Monday the
commissioners discussed talking with
DeSoto County Commissioner Elton
Langford, who is a Gilchrist County
native, about how to effectively
market the arena. DeSoto County has
a similar facility that isrented out by
the county.

PageTwoGILI IRST OUNY JURNA THRSDY, ARIL19,201


Over the past year or so food cost
has increased to the point that I have
been looking for ways to save some
money while shopping. I have to
admit to paying more attention to
the sales my local store has and also
stopping at the buy one, get one free
display a little more often.
Just this past week, after' a fam-
ily friend shared a recipe for making
laundry detergent with me, I decided
to try my. hand at making my own
soap.
For years like many of you I have
purchased several big orange jugs
of Tide at the store per month. But
after making my first batch of laun-
dry detergent it was so simple and
the recipe makes about 3 gallons
for only a few dollars so I gave it a
try. In fact all the ingredients were
less than eight dollars, not counting
the five gallon bucket with lid which
runs less than five. The cool thing is
the next time I need to make a batch
of detergent it will take only a 97
cent.bar of Fel-Naptha soap because
I have lots of the Borax and Washing
Soda left over.
It seems that I came late to the
make-your-own-laundry-soap party,
as several of my friends .have been
saving money for over a year now. It
turns out one friend told me she: has
only spent $8 this past year for laun-
dry soap, hard to believe, but true.
Several people have done the math
and told me it cost less than 7 cents a
load. If that's not enough to sell you
on the idea, one of my friends washes
ground-in dirt from farmer clothing
and those clothes come out really
clean.
Another friend reported that she
made up the gel laundry soap and it
worked fine in her high efficiency
front loading machine as this recipe
makes little or no foam.
I would recommend you have a
wooden spoon with a long handle, a
hand grater and a five gallon bucket
with lid before you start.
Apparently this homemade laun-
dry soap-making has spread all over
the country because last ieek I re-
ceived my Lehman's Spring catalog


from Ohio and they had a homemade
laundry soap starter set which includ-
ed all the items in this recipe sold in
kit form. The kit was located on the
same page as the old fashioned wash-
boards. Lawdy, I sure hope I don't,
have to resort to using one of those
rub-boards.




1 bar Fels-Naptha Laundry Soap
6 cup 20 Mule Team Borax
1 cup Arm and Hammer Super
Washing Soda

Step.one:
Grate bar of Fels-Naptha soap fine
Heat 3 cups of water until it boils
then add the grated soap and stir
while boiling until it dissolves. This
should take about five minutes or so.

Step two:
Put cup borax and 1 cup super
washing soda in bottom of five gal-
lon bucket. Add three gallons of wa-
ter and'stir well (16 cups equals one
gallon).

Step three:
Add the Fels-Naptha soap solu-
tion to the bucket and stir until all
is mixed well. Put lid on bucket and
wait 24 hours.

SStep four:
Uncover and stir the gel mixture
until all is mixed well. Using a cup
per load this has almost no smell.

Tip: If you miss the fragrance of
laundry detergent you can add three
drops of essential oil of any scent'you
like to the finished gel and stir.
I poured up two plastic Maxwell,
House coffee tubs full of laundry gel
soap and since they are not too deep
I just stir the soap each time with my
measuring cup before I dip out the
cup to use. You will need to stir or
shake before., each use because the
laundry gel soap separates after it
sets awhile.

I was reading some religious journals from the 60s and
found numerous times that debates were mentioned either
as having happened or were being planned. There are few
people today in any religious circle that remember what a
debate was. Eewer still were part of those debates'.
Decades ago debates were quite frequent and varied from
place to place. Some debates would have crowds of up to
600 to 800 people a night. One such debate spoke of
nearly 1000 people in attendance. I am sure there were
other debates of various sizes but the debates happened
often.
The focus of the debates would examine doctrinal
differences between religious groups and for many years
well known men were renowned for their prowess on the
debating stage. In the ones that I read it was also noted
how that each participate in the debate was cordial and
respectful as they argued their position in favor or against
the established point of difference. Debates would
challenge Baptist, Methodist, Christian Church and so.
forth on a field of discussions ranging from the means of
salvation, instruments of music, church work and
benevolence and a host of topics appealing to the minds of
the religious community.
It is painfully clear that debates have fallen by the
wayside. Trying to imagine a debate between two parties
discussing the issues of salvation in a public venue;
attended by 600-800 people each night is truly a thing of
the past. Revivals and gospel meetings rarely attain that
level of interest. There seem to be some root causes for the
demise of debates and public interest.
Religion is no longer a subject that people want to
discuss. It either offends them to have challenges to their


disputes, and landlord/tenant litiga-
tion.
When he is not working, Grant
volunteers at the Ronald McDonald
House, the Riverside Presbyterian
youth group, and he coaches YMCA
basketball.
Earlier this year, Grant was named
to the Top 40 Under 40 list by. the
Jacksonville Business Journal.
A Trenton native, Grant told the
Jacksonville Business Journal that the
best advice he ever got was, "Never
forget where you came from."

faith or they have become'so satisfied in their system of
faith they will not discuss it. It is harder still to find many'
people who are interested in having a study in their home.
Religion, has become the manna of over-satisfied
self-absorbed individuals who have little time to talk about
whdt they believe in. "You believe what you believe and I
will believe what I believe" is the clarion call of the
religion of convenience.
How did Jesus view this self-inflicted wound of religious
pride? In Matthew 23 the Lord said, "The scribes and the
Pharisees sit in Moses' seat. Therefore whatever they tell
you to observe that observe and do, but do not do
according to their works; for they say, and do not do"
(vv2-3). Did the Son of God suggest that it did not matter
what you believed as long as you believed in God? Did
Jesus Christ every challenge the religious groups of His
day? "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For
you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he
is won, you make hinm twice as much a son of hell as
yourselves" (Mathew 23:15).
The apostle Paul went into the Jewish synagogues to
discuss the scriptures on a frequent basis (Acts 13: 14:1;
17; 18; 19:8 for three months). He would find few
recipients today interested in debating the scriptures. Satan
has dulled our ,enses with the frivolities of the world.
Conviction has given way to convenience. Self-indulgence
hearts are guided by carnal desires. Who has time to talk of
the Bible? "My people are destroyed for lack of

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Gilchrist County says

farewell to two employees

Gilchrist County held a surprise get-together on April 16 to allow
everyone'to say goodbye and honor Mrs. Linda Crites, who has been
with the County for 20 years, and Mr. Ron Mills, who has been in
Emergency Management for nearly 9 years. After the get-together,
there was a county commission meeting where a presentation was
made to honor both employees.


5th grade may move

grade. However, Wendy O'Steen,
director of elementary education for
the Gilchrist County School District,
offered statistics showing the
enrollment numbers at, the fifth grade
level have hardly changed over the
years. During the 2007-2008 school
year there were 801 students in 5th
grade, in 2008-2009, there were 810
students in 5th grade and by 2009-
2010 there were 834 students in 5th
grade. During the 2010-2011 school
year, there were 830 students at the
5th grade level and 814 students by
2011-2012.
Superintendent Thomas said that.
he was not the superintendent when
the decision was made to move the
5th grade to the middle-high school,
so he does not know the whole
story. Thomas did say that he feels
instructionally it is better for the 5th
grade students to be at the elementary
school and since the decision was
made to move the 5th grade, a wing
has been added on to a building at
Trenton Elementary School allowing
more classrooms for students.
"I was on the board when the
decision was made to move the 5th
grade," said Bob Clemons, a school
board member. "At the time we were
growing and we were out of space at
the elementary school. It was not an
Easy decision to make. We all make
Mistakes, but at the time it seemed
like the right thing to do. Since then
the economy has fallen off, we have
stopped growing and an extra wing
has been added at the elementary
school. We have made it work over
the years, but there are a lot of
compelling arguments for moving the
5th grade back. Ultimately,.we want
to do what's best for the students."
According to O'Steen, five
classrooms will be available during
the 2012-2013 school year at Trenton
Elementary School, for the 5th grade,
should the decision be made to return
5th grade to the elementary.
As O'Steen pointed out there
are a number of advantages and


disadvantages to moving the 5th
grade back to the elementary school.
Advantages include more professional
development opportunities at an
elementary school level, teachers
would be able to attend morning
meetings that pertain to elementary
curiculum, interest, and issues,
wheel schedule with elementary
focus, response to Intervention-
elementary focus, Data talks every
other week, reading coach would
be shared at two school rather than
three, AR nights, AR books, Families
Building Better Learners (FBBL)
opportunities, computer programs,
Title 1, self-contained ESE that is
more appropriate, guidance more
elementary appropriate, safety patrol,
elementary student progression plan,
vertical planning, opportunities, K-
5 reading plan, and end of the year
activities.
Disadvantages include an increase
in the number of students at one
school, guidance for more students,
parking for parents, parent pick-up
and drop-off, administrative duties
that may require more teachers for
the increased number of students,
lunch schedule, and wheel schedule.
Cori Becker questioned if
additional teachers and staff would
need to be added. The superintendent
said that decision would be up to
the elementary school.principal, to
evaluate.
O'Steen also pointed out that since
the 5th grade has been at the middle-
high school; school district officials
have noticed a dip in FCAT scores
for their grade level.
"Instructionally, for the kids, I
feel like moving them back to the
elementary school would be best,"
Thomas said. "The school board will
have to make a decision one way or
another quickly. Our recommendation
is to move forward at this point."
At press time on Tuesday, the
Gilchrist County School Board was
expected to vote on the.issue during
a school board meeting scheduled for
Tuesday night.


Now atd 7het
By Carrie A. Mizell


In my family it's a widely known
fact that my sister-in-law Lyndsay
can pull a trailer, and drive a tractor
better than any Ayers man.
Lyndsay's daddy, Johnny Parrish is
a farmer, therefore she grew up on a
tractor working during the summers.
In fact, she told me the other day
that her brother John was driving a
tractor before he was big enough to
push the clutch in. Lyndsay said her
daddy would get on it, crank it up and
get John going and then hop on it to
get him stopped when it was time to
go to the house.
I love that farming is'a family tra-
dition, involving two, three, or more
generations.
Last week I looked on with a smile
as my 3-year-old daughter Allie
Claire chased down a bitty in one of
her Papa's chicken houses in Nassau
County. She had a little friend over to
play at our farm house and she want-
ed to show the little girl "her" chick-
ens, so we drove down to the back
and Allie Claire walked in the house
like she owned it. Immediately, she
started pointing out the fans, heaters,
and feeders the chicks used. I was
amazed! Turns out my father-in-law
is teaching her, all kinds of valuable
information she should know since
she represents the fifth generation of
chicken farmers in the Mizell family.
My girl really blew my mind when
she pointed to a cow as we were driv-
ing down the road the other day and
said, "Look, momma, there's a Her-
eford."
I love that kids who are raised on
a farm learn respect for the land and
animals, persistence, discipline and

Gilchrist Sheriff's
Volunteers News
The election of officers for the
Sheriff's Volunteers will be held on
May 1, 2012, and.it is very important
that all members be present to vote
on that date.
During the month of March 2012,
Citizens' Patrol cars were driven
1311 miles and volunteers contribut-
ed 137 hours while patrolling county
and city roads, working school zones,
assisting at accident scenes, assisting
at the Quilt Festival and performing
other community service. "
CARE (Check and Respond Ev-
eryday) volunteers made 56 calls and


the value of hard work.
Those important life lessons may
be in jeopardy if Department of Labor
youth labor regulations are passed.
Under the new regs, children under
the age of 16 will not be able to per-
form basic animal husbandry practic-
es, they will be limited in other jobs
they can perform around the farm as
well. They won't even be allowed to
use simple tools like a battery-oper-
ated screwdriver.
According to Adam Basford, of
the Farm Bureau, the proposed regs
would also limit training for future
farmers and could affect some youths'
ability to earn money during the sum-
mer months picking fruit.'
Recognizing that a longstanding
tradition is at risk, three state repre-
sentatives recently introduced bills
that would block the proposed DOL
requirements.
On March 7, Rep. Tom Latham (R-
Iowa) introduced H.R. 4157, the Pre-
serving America's Family Farm Act.
Additionally, on March 21, Sens.
John Thune (R-South Dakota) and
Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) introduced
S. 2221 as a companion bill to H,R.
4157.
Florida Farm Bureau supports
these two bills to block the DOL
rules as they would increase legal li-
abilities for farm families, as well as
force farmers to change the way chil-
dren work on the farm.
Please call, write, or e-mail your
state representatives and senators to
ask them to support these two bills
for generations of farmers, both to-
day and those to come.

16 visits to residents enrolled in the
program. If any Gilthrist County
resident would like to get a well-be-
ing'call on a daily basis, please call
Suzi Wright (352) 225-2625 for en-
rollment information.
The next meeting will be held on
May 1 at 6 p.m. in the Sheriff's'Office
conference room: As noted above,
elections will take place at this meet-
ing and all members are urged to at-
tend.

blood drive
Submitted
What difference can a single do-
nation make? One figure frequently
cited is that one pint of blood can
save up to three lives, since it can
provide three lifesaving products: red
blood cells, plasma and platelets. But
that only scratches the surface of the
impact. Those three people may have
children, brothers, sisters or parents.
There may be friends, classmates or
coworkers, who will all be affected
because a life was saved because one
person made the decision to donate
blood. A one hour investment of time
can have a far-reaching influence. Be
a life saver and a life changer, donate
blood today.
LifeSouth and the Bell Community
invite you to be a part of saving lives
when they team up to host a blood
drive on Thursday, April 26. Look
for the bloodmobile in the rear park-
ing lot of the high school between
the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. The
bloodmobile then moves to the front
of the high school for the community
drive between the hours of 1:30 p.m.
until 5 p.m.
"Seventeen percent of non-donors
say 'they never thought about it,' as
the main reason for not giving," said
Michael Ross, donor recruiter, for
LifeSouth. "We hope everyone will
think about saving lives and donate
blood at the community drive."
All who donate will receive a Life-
South backpack and a complimentary
cholesterol screening. Donors must
be at least 16 years old, weigh 110
pounds or more, and have photo I.D.
Sixteen-year-old donors must have
signed parental consent.. For more
information about becoming a donor'
or about blood drives in your area,
call LifeSouth at (888) 795-2707 or.

Tigers finish

District 10-0,

prepare for post

season

By Todd Bryant
On Monday, April 9, the Trenton
Tigers hosted the Hawthorne Hornets
in the final district game of the year
for the Tigers. The Tigers were unde-
feated in district play going into the
game and hoped'to remain in the dis-
trict lead. Trenton's hitters were able
to get 8 hits off the Hornet pitchers.
Hunter Parrish had 2 hits for the Ti-
gers and Clif Bryant also had 2 hits,
including a double. Defensively the
Tigers started Stephen Smith on the
mound. Smith went 5 innings and
gave up 2 unearned runs on 1 hit, 4
strikeouts and 4 walks. Hunter Wil-
liams relieved Smith and threw the fi-
nal 2 innings. Williams gave up one
hit with one walk and 3 strikeouts
while holding the Hornets scoreless.
The Tigers won 7-2 and finished the
year 10-0 in district play..
Trenton faced Chiefland on Thurs-
day night in front of a good home
crowd. Chiefland had won 5 games
straight and hoped to avenge their
prior loss to the Tigers. Darren
Skawienski started on the mound for
the Tigers and was able to go 6 in-
nings. The Indians were able to score
3 runs off of Skawienski on 3 hits
and 3 errors committed by the Tigers.
Skawienski had 6 strikeouts and 3
walks in the contest before being re-
lieved by Hunter Williams. Williams
faced 3 batters in the 7th inning and
got 2 strikeouts to earn his second
save of the year. Offensively the Ti-
gers had 10 hits. Darren Skawienski
and Hunter Parrish each had 3 hits
and Clif Bryant had 2 hits, including
a home run, as well as scoring 3 runs.
The Tigers won 6-3 and Skawienski
improved his record to 8-1.
On Saturday the Tigers faced Mel-
ody Christian from Live Oak at Tiger
Field. Melody is the leader in Dis-
trict 5-A and will likely be a Tiger op-
ponent in post season play. Stephen
Smith started on the mound again for
the Tigers, and went 6 innings, giv-
ing up 3 runs on 4 hits. Smith only
walked one batter while striking out
6 and improving his record to 2-0 on
the season. Hunter Williams relieved
Smith in the 7th and earned his 3rd
save while facing 3 batters and strik-
ing out one. Offensively the Tigers
were led by Darren Skawienski. He
had 3 hits, including a double, and 2
RBIs, while Cedric Stokes also had
2 hits. Clif Bryant added a double
in the contest. The Tigers won the
game 5-3 and improved their record
to 17-5.
The Tigers faced PK Yonge at
home on Tuesday at 7 p.m. and Perry
in Taylor County away on Thursday
at 7 p.m. Come out and support the
Tigers.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


Submitted
;The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
:day, April 12, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. Everyone was. busy
with various projects. B.J. was vol-
unteered to assemble the Bible quilt
so everyone needs to get their square
in soon. The Take 5 project was on
hold this week so more work will be
done on it next week.
B.J. brought her variation of
a Washington Rose quilt to be
sandwiched. She has hand-pieced
and hand-appliqued the quilt top and
is now ready to hand-quilt it. It's a
gorgeous design.
I've learned a few more things.
There are all sorts of needles quilt.
needles, applique or straw needles,
sewing needles, darning needles and
even basting needles. A quilt needle

meeting


is a short needle with a larger eye
than a regular sewing needle. The
smaller needle makes it possible for
small stitches when hand-quilting.
Then there are "fat quarters". The
easiest way is to say "it's a quilting
term" and just let it be. A fat quar-
ter is 18 in. x 22 in. and is a yard of
material cut in half (18 in.) then the
width of that piece is cut in half (22
in.). It's a quilting term.
Greg and six young men were
out and worked in the yard. They
worked on the flower beds.: Thanks,
Lancaster.
Our hours on Tuesday through Sat-
urday are from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. and
we'd love to see you. We are plan-
ning an Open House on Saturday,
May 19, to show off the Museum'and
hope to make new friends.
