All water users within the
Suwannee River Water Management
District (District) are urged to curb
any unnecessary uses of water in
response to the ongoing drought.
The 12 months ending in March
were the driest since 1932; and the
rainfall deficit, now at 15.7 inches,
continues to take its toll on rivers,
springs, and groundwater levels.
By the middle of April flows at all
Suwannee River gauges fell back to
the lowest 10 percent of flows, with
many gauges setting new low flows
for the time of year.
Seventy percent of groundwater
monitor wells reported record low
levels for March and nine wells
reported all-time lows, including a
well with data beginning in 1948. The
low groundwater levels resulted in
low flow in springs across the area.
"In most areas in our District
groundwater levels are near or
below those seen in the 2002
drought, which until this past year
was the worst drought on record
in terms of groundwater," said
Megan Wetherington, District senior
professional engineer.
"The lowest flow on record was
recorded at Poe Springs, and Levy
Blue Spring currently is no longer
flowing," Wetherington added.
"Manatee and Fanning Springs are
also low."
Wetherington said there is little
chance of the District coming out
of the drought in the next several
months, short of an unusual weather
event or tropical system.
The National Weather Service
Climate Prediction Center predicts
the drought to persist or intensify
in most parts of the southeast in the
coming months.


"We have entered the dry season,
and what rainfall we typically get is
less effective in terms of groundwater
recharge because of losses to heat
and vegetation," Wetherington said.
"We can expect to see the rivers set
new lows by June, as well as further
decreases in spring flows if we don't
get some help from the weather."
Jon Dinges, District director
of Water- Supply and Resource
Management, said residents and
others within the District are under
mandatory limits on lawn and
landscape irrigation and water
use permit holders are required to
implement water conservation plans.
However, during these drought
conditions, the District may need to
put in place additional measures to
reduce demands on water supplies.
District staff is evaluating the
need to require mandatory water use
restrictions for all users in response
to long-term drought conditions that
continue to worsen.
"There is a need for everyone
to reduce water use," said District
Acting Executive Director Charlie
Houder. "We will continue to monitor
hydrologic conditions closely and
will prepare to declare a water
shortage order if conditions do not
improve quickly."
Under the water shortage order,
restrictions and some exemptions
would apply to residential, agricul-
ture, commercial, and industrial us-
ers. Water shortage restrictions are
intended to reduce the demand on
water supplies during drought. Once
drought conditions have improved,
the District would remove the restric-
tions.
SFor now, a water shortage advisory
is in effect, which urges all users to
eliminate unnecessary uses of water.

Fanning Springs breaks ground



on wastewater system


By Carrie A. Mizell
Construction is now underway
for the City of Fanning Springs'
centralized wastewater treatment
facility.
City officials, local residents and
U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural
Development officials gathered at
Fort Fanning Historical Park on April
17 for a groundbreaking ceremony.
The City of Fanning Springs
received a $2,946,000 loan and
a $2,855,000 grant from Rural
Development for construction of a
centralized wastewater collection
and treatment facility. The project,
leveraged with $600,000 in state
Community Development Block
'Grant funds, will decommission
existing septic tank systems, replace
three packaged wastewater treatment
plants and reduce the amount
of nitrates in the community's
groundwater.
. "A safe, reliable wastewater
system is vital to economic growth
and development," said Richard
Machek, Rural Development state
director. "But none of this happens
automatically, it's more than putting
pipes in the ground. It takes vision
and leadership. The City of Fanning
Springs is not only making an
investment in their future, but in
the spirit of Earth Day, they are
also safeguarding the area's natural
resources and investing in the future
of the environment as well."
The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection had
identified Fanning Springs as an area
of concern due to high levels of nitrates

in the community's groundwater. The
new wastewater treatment facility
will be capable of advanced treatment
for nitrogen, thereby improving
spring and groundwater conditions in
the area. Fanning Springs reportedly
pours 65 million gallons of spring


water into the Suwannee River each
day, therefore this project will not
only benefit the community, but also
the river that runs through it.
"Fanning Springs' new wastewater
project is very important for the
protection of our environment' and


our economy," said Fanning Springs
Mayor Cheryl Nekola.
"We feel that this new facility
will bring prosperity to our citizens
and a better quality of life. Our city
has a positive vision for today and
tomorrow."

Mazda truck burns


By Carrie A. Mizell
Two brush trucks and two fire
engines responded to a single vehicle
fire off County Road 232 on Friday
morning.
No one was injured in the fire,
which had reportedly almost burned
itself out when firefighters arrived on
scene just after 9:30 a.m.
According to a fire report, the


1994 Mazda pickup truck incurred
an estimated $1,500 loss in the fire,
which occurred on a side, dirt road
near the intersection of State Road
47.
After arriving on scene, firefighters
extinguished what was left of the fire.
After an investigation, the cause of the
vehicle fire remains undetermined.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


I don't know about you, but from
time to time I'm just not in the mood
to be rattling the pots and pans.
On those days I turn to this simple
supper that is extra good because
it cooks low and slow for over two
hours, I know, you don't have time
after working all day to pull off this
recipe. Maybe you could use this
recipe on Saturday when you would
rather work in the yard or curl up
on the couch with a good book than
cook.
These slow oven roasted ribs are
wonderful served with baked sweet
potatoes and steamed broccoli or
green cabbage. After a long stay in
the oven the meat from these ribs just
about falls off the bone.
The idea is to stick the ribs and
sweet potatoes in the oven and go do
something else for two hours.
The trick is to wash the whole un-
peeled sweet potatoes and trim off
each end. Then rub a'few drops of
oil on each one and wrap it in alu-
minum foil. Spread the potatoes out
on a baking pan and put them in the
oven when you place the ribs in and.
let them bake until they are tender.
You can tell when they are done by
squeezing them or sticking a fork into
the potatoes to see if they are soft and
therefore done.
Besides tasting great sweet pota-
toes are so good for us and easy to
cook, I don't know why I don't cook
them more often?
When you brush the ribs with sauce

Reunions

Trenton High School
Alumni Reunion

The time is here and we are 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.
For questions or further informa-
tion, you may contact Ms. Diana
Webb Harrison at 352-463- 2147, or
Ms. Jennie Lou Colson Sharp at 352-
493-4638.

Letter to te Editor


The rain held off long enough for
many to enjoy the morning at Otter
Springs open house which our man-
ager Kadie Ogden arranged for Sat-
urday, April 21.
I attended to assist at my CERT
(Certified Emergency Response
Team) table as we demonstrated
some of our abilities. The Ham radio
equipment was especially interest-
ing. In case you.missed it the Team
is looking for recruits who want to
become Hams. Contact Emergency
Management.
Florida Wildlife Commission sent
a display trailer and video with many
native Florida critters in residence,
i.e. their skins. Do you know the
Black Bear has recovered enough to
be under consideration for a change
in the 'endangered' listing?
Families young and old were frol-
icking in the Springs trying to ignore
the low water and depressing amount


of algae and aquatic weeds present. If
ever there was a place where we can
all see the vivid reality of drought it
would be Otter Springs itself.
Fortunately by the time I left run-
ning ahead of the rain front line ap-
proaching in the north, the Consump-
tive Use Permit holder on the Springs
entrance county road had turned off
the pivot sprinkler, which had been
spraying the county, road at noon (a
violation of SRWMD current rules on
water use). It defies imagination why
they were even spraying with the on-
coming front predicting perhaps two
inches bf desperately needed rain.
Each of us needs to be alert to con-
ditions affecting Gilchrist County
and make our concerns known to of-
ficials with authority. We all should
do our share to work with nature and
improve our county.
Sincerely,
Jean Wonser


Jesus And What Must I Do To Be Saved?
(Kent Heaton)


The city was Jerusalem and the day was fifty days after
Passover. The Day of Pentecost was the Feast of Harvest
(Exodus 23:16) for the Jews but on this day it would be
the harvest of the new era of redemption for all mankind.
The apostle Peter's sermon is recorded in Acts 2:14-36
with the conclusion drawing his listeners to the appeal that
the crucified Jesus was Lord and Christ. "Now when they
heard this, they ,Iwere ,cut to the heart, and said to Peter
and the rest of the apostles, 'Men and brethren, what
shall we do?' Then Peter said to them, 'Repent, and let
every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins'" (Acts 2:37-38). And on that
day three thousand Jews obeyed the gospel just like Jesus
said they needed to do in Mark 16:15-16.
Many days later in the city of Samaria, Philip the
evangelist is preaching "the things concerning the
kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both menj
and women were baptized" (Acts 8:12) just like Jesus said
they needed to do in Mark 16:15-16. An angel of the Lord
speaks to Philip and tells him to go find a man from
another nation and teach him the good news of
redemption. Finding an Ethiopian returning from
Jerusalem, Philip joins the treasurer of the Queen and
beginning at Isaiah 53 preaches Jesus to him (Acts
8:26-35). "Now as they went down the road, they came to
some water. And the eunuch said, 'See, here is water.
What hinders me from being baptized?' Then Philip
said, 'If you believe with all your heart, you nmay.'And
he answered and said, 'I believe that Jesus Christ is the
Son of God.' So he commanded the chariot to stand still.
And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the
water, and he baptized him" (Acts 8:36-38) just like


Jesus said they needed to do in Mark 16:15-16.
Saul of Tarsus brought a great persecution against the
church (Acts 8:1-4) and was on his way to Damascus to
imprison more disciples. Jesus appeared to Saul on the
road and instructed him to go into the city and wait to be
told what to do. Three days later Ananias comes and says,
"Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on
the road as you came, has sent me that you may receive
your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit ....And now
why are you waiting? Arise and be baptized, and wash
away your sins, calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts
9:17; 22:16). Saul obeyed and did just like Jesus he needed
to do in Mark 16:15-16.
Cornelius and his household obeyed the will of the Lord
in Acts 10:47-48; as did Lydia (Acts 16:13-15), the jailor of
Philippi (Acts 16:25-34), and the Corinthians (Acts 18:8)
just like Jesus said they needed to do in Mark 16:15-16.
The apostle Paul wrote to the Romans explaining the way
of salvation (Romans 6:3-11); to the church at Colossae
using circumcision as a type of redemption (Colossians
2:11-13); and the cliurches of Galatia showing "faith in
Christ Jesus ... having been baptized in Christ"
(Galatians' 3:26-29) as necessary just like Christ said
needed to be done in Mark 16:15-16.
The apostle Peter confirmed the words of Jesus command
in Mark 16:15-16 when he writes, "There is also an
antitype which now saves us-baptism" (1 Peter 3:20-21).
As with all New Testament examples of salvation, the
disciples of Jesus taught exactly what Jesus commanded.
Jesus said. "He who believes and is baptized will be saved;
but he who does not believe will be condemned" (Mark
16:16). Will you obey?

The TRUTH about Heartworm Disease
By Allison Hiers, DVM
Owner Trenton Animal Hospital
TRUE or FALSE:..Heartworm Disease is rare. FALSE! A recent study showed that I in 3 dogs
not on monthly heartworm prevention in North Florida had heartworm disease!
TRUE or FALSE...Only dogs gets heartworm disease. FALSE! Cats and dogs both get heartworm
disease...even if they are "inside" animals.
.TRUE or FALSE...Animals contract heartworms by mosquito bites. TRUE! A mosquito injects
'microscopic worms under your animals skin and it takes 6 months for these worms to mature and
.travel to the heart where they live until they are killed or die. Heartworms are NOT contagious
from animal to animal or to people.
TRUE or FALSE.. It is expensive to prevent heartworm disease. FALSE! An annual blood test
for only $15-25 is needed and medicine to prevent heartworm disease (as well as intestinal worms)
is only dollars a month.
TRUE or FALSE... "My animal is acting perfectly healthy so he/she can't have heartworms!"
:FALSE! Most animals that have heartworms show no clinical signs like coughing until they are in
the end-stages of heart, lung and/or liver failure. The first sign a cat can show is sudden death.
TRUE or FALSE...It is very expensive to treat heartworm disease. TRUE AND FALSE!...The
ideal way to treat heartworm disease is with a series of injections that kills all living worms in the
animal, this method is safe but can be expensive for large dogs. I however, another less expensive
and safe method is available to clear heartworm disease that costs less than $10 a inonth.
Please feel free to call our clinic with any further questions! Remember, for only
dollars a month you can prevent this fatal disease and give your dog/cat the long,
healthy'life they deserve! Mention this article to our staff and receive $10 OFF
heartworm testing this month!

Banquet. Our volunteers are very
special to us, and to show our appre-
ciation, once a year we have a little
something so they can come to Ayers,
not to help out, but for pure enjoy-
ment and a lot of fun!! This year's
theme was a "Country Hoedown".
A country meal of grilled bbq ribs,
baked potatoes, country green beans,
and yeast rolls; and to finish off, why
of course, a piece of pie! Although
the dining room was covered with
country decorations, a special thanks
to Mr. David Welch for allowing us to
use "real" cowboy stuff! After a slew
of awesome door prizes, donated by
our wonderful business community,
we had special recognition for those
who put in many, many hours of vol-
unteering at Ayers. One such special-
ly recognized lady was Ms. Lou'etta
Moore, for even though she visits to
share time with her own mother, she
does so very much more. She has en-
veloped many lives with her love and
attention to others. We could not be
a top rated facility without our won-
derful volunteers!! For Organization
of the year, AARP was recognized.
As well as Church of the Year go-
ing to Open Door Ministries, and last
but certainly not least, Entertainer of

This year we will have keyboard

Miss Elizabeth does a wonderful job
with her students and we will enjoy
seeing the progress made by each
one.
Also performing will be our guitar

students always offer a wide range of


musical styles and we look forward to

literally hundreds of students through
our doors during this time and have
enjoyed each and every one. Many

professionally or simply for the joy
it brings. Dixie Music Center is lo-

\


To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
I am very humbled by the amount of expressed support I continue to receive as a candidate for sheriff.
I have visited many citizens throughout Gilchrist County, and as I listen to your concerns and what you,
expect from your sheriff's office, it is clear that most of us agree about what is needed and expected. It
comes down to three things: LEADERSHIP, ACCOUNTABILITY, and CONSISTENCY, each of
which is just as important as the other.
By applying proven experience and a COMMON SENSE approach, we can focus on those three l
principles and achieve any realistic goal we set out to accomplish. In order to be an effective sheriff, it's
important to have a working, applied knowledge of most, if not all, of the jobs or positions under their
command.
When an employee or citizen speaks to the sheriff, they have every right to expect him or her to have
the knowledge and experience needed to give an informed answer or to make an informed decision.
While it is important for the sheriff to be surrounded with a competent, experienced and knowledgeable
staff; at the end of the day, it's the sheriff who is elected to run the office.
I have 20 years of proven, applied experience in nearly every area of law enforcement, and judicial investigations. I have proven working
relationships with other local, state and federal law enforcement agencies. I have proven experience of developing pro-active crime prevention
initiatives and strategies to reduce crime. I have proven experience in reaching out to communities and bridging divides.
I have investigated and solved major crimes including homicides, residential and business burglaries, armed robberies, financial crimes,
crimes against the elderly, agriculture crimes, crimes against children and many, many others. I have firsthand experience utilizing confidential
sources during criminal investigations including.narcotic investigations. I have been first on the scene as a patrol officer on various types of
incidents. I have worked traffic crashes and enforced traffic laws. I have worked as a communications officer and also as both a county and state
correctional officer. I have also worked as a supervisor and have experience with budgets and other administrative duties.
I also have the unique experience of having worked for both the State Attorney's Office and the Public Defender's Office. I know what makes
a weak case or a strong case. I have international experience as a Civilian Police Advisor/Mentor; helping build police departments from the
ground up in Operation Enduring Freedom in war-torn Afghanistan.
As sheriff I plan to draw on my varied and extensive experience to address many areas of concern, such as:
We will identify, investigate and arrest those who wish to destroy our communities with the sale of narcotics by using all resources at our
disposal to include enlisting local, state and federal agencies to assist us, as opposed to doing it for us, with needed resources.
We will review any unsolved homicide cases and seek assistance from other agencies if necessary.
We will multi-task. In small agencies, the need for multi-tasking is essential for efficient, effective work and for fiscal responsibility. This
will include supervisors and the sheriff. To "Protect and Serve" does not apply just between the hours of 8am and 5pm.
We will, as soon as feasibly possible, add one School Resource Deputy (SRO) to the School System. Along with this, we would work closely
with school administrations to continue educating our youth bn laws and the consequences of not obeying them.
We will seek to hold quarterly (or as needed) training sessions for law enforcement personnel with the States Attorney's Office to improve
case management, report writing and/or other areas in need of improvement. This would provide the Assistant State Attorney time to review
legal updates and address problems that may arise, to ensure all cases are as strong as possible for prosecution.
We will make it a priority to improve morale within the sheriff's office, by applying strong leadership, accountability and consistency in all
situations whether they are to personnel, discipline or operations.
We will be committed to working closely with the community and keeping the line of communication, with our citizens (to include our
youth), open. If a citizen calls the sheriff's office, they have every right and expectation their phone call will be returned if requested or needed.
I also believe that contact with law enforcement should not and does not always have to be reserved for adverse or emergency situations.
We will work closely and train with other county agencies such as EMS, Fire, Emergency Operations Director and Veteran Services.
We will seek more specialized training for patrol and correctional officers, and we will be seeking training opportunities for all investigators
in various, specialized areas of investigations to include agriculture crimes, narcotics and other areas of need. Advanced training for K-9 Depu-
ties would also be a priority.
We will explore the possibility of implementing a volunteer crime scene unit to assist in investigating certain crimes.
We will make every effort to locate and secure grants for much needed personnel, equipment and other resources.
These are only a few things that I would like to work toward accomplishing if blessed to be elected as your sheriff. I believe that they are
realistic and obtainable through LEADERSHIP, ACCOUNTABIL-
ITY and CONSISTENCY.
We have some good men running for sheriff, and each carry with
them great qualities. I ask simply that you educate yourself on all the
candidates, decide for yourself what type of experience and qualities
you want in your next sheriff, and ask questions. Then say a prayer
asking for guidance in making your decision and vote the way you
feel led.
1 look forward to meeting with as many of you as I can in the
coming days, weeks, and months.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at
(352) 682-3242.


Respectfully,
Robert (Bobby) Schultz

The Log Cabin Quilters met
Thursday, April 19, at the Levy
County Quilt Museum. We were
busy working on the quilt in the frame
and if everything goes well, they will
finish that quilt about the same time
the Take 5 quilt is ready to go into
the frame.
The Take 5 quilt is beginning to
take shape. The blocks were put
into rows so Peggy could stitch the
rows together. Next week we should
be ready to sandwich the quilt. One
of the time consuming details was
done by Doris at home, making sure
all the squares are the same size then
ironed.
Joyce brought in a lot of her extra
fabric for all to see. Some of the
proceeds will go to the Museum. We
have two tables with fabric which
is ideal for learning how to quilt
something small.
Aileen is planning to teach a
"strip". class; strip quilting that is.
By using the strips of fabric left over


from other projects, one could make
anything from a pot holder to a quilt.
She has made "stained glass" curtains
for a sunny room in her home using
strips and black fabric. She should
start the class on Thursday, May 2.
We're hoping she will also do classes
on Saturday for those who can't come
out on Thursday. Call 352 493 2801
for details.
What I learned this week: you
have to have a walking foot for
your sewing machine if you want to
machine quilt. It doesn't hold the
fabric as tightly as the traditional
presser foot and it allows the layers
of fabric to move together.
We're still planning our Open
House and Winnelle Home's
celebration on May 19. We're
hoping for some music, maybe a yard
sale which will be open for others to
join us and who knows what other
surprises we will be able to develop.
If you're looking for homemade
items, please keep us in mind. We
have everything from pot holders to
quilts even baby quilts.

Jennings Lake
Cemetery Board
meeting
Submitted by Emma Gay
The Jennings Lake Cemetery
Board quarterly meeting will be
Thursday, April 26, 2012, at 6:00
p.m. The meeting will be at Akins
BBQ restaurant in Bell. I would like
to ask everyone that has family mem-
bers or friends buried in the cemetery
to attend and help us make a plan on
how we are going to keep the cem-
etery cleaned.
We held a work day last Friday and
had about 15 people show up. I would
like to thank the people that came
and worked hard to get the cemetery
mowed and more of the headstones
cleaned. I would also ask that family
members remove all the old flowers
and small figurines that make it more
difficult for the person mowing the
yard. Family members should bring
a bag to put all the old flowers and
broken containers in to take it home

Author Debbie Macomber returns
us to Blossom Street, where we
first met Bethanne six years ago in
A Good Yarn. She tells Bethanne's
story in A Turn in the Road, a story
about betrayal and forgiveness in re-
lationships. You'll love the road trip
and the surprises it brings. If you're a
Blossom Street fan, this latest install-
ment is just for you! It's a real win-
ner! Sometimes, where you think
you're going isn't where you end
up. In the middle of the year, in the
middle of her life, Bethanne Hamlin
takes a road trip with her daughter,
Annie, and her former mother-in-law,
Ruth. So there they are, three women
driving across America. They have
their maps and their directions, but
even the best-planned journey can
take you to a turn in the road or lead
to an unexpected encounter.
Just a reminder that Library Cards
are a must in order to check out ma-
terials from the library. We need to
update our files; just ask if you have
filled out the yellow card and not re-*
ceived your card. Let us know if you

Nehemiah #8
Submitted
Nobody is good at everything.
Aren't you glad? Observation of
human nature might even allow us
to suppose the better a person is at
some things, the fewer those things
are. Overall, this is likely because in
order to truly excel in an area, time
and commitment to that one area will
be essential, allowing minimal ex-
perience in other areas. Following a
counseling session recently, someone
several years older than I commented
that it was a shame to seek help from
a younger person. I disagree. In fact,
I was certain our roles would be re-
versed concerning most any other
topic than the one we were discuss-
ing. It occurs to me that we often
assume, age, education, and/or expe-
rience automatically equips a person
to be ready for anything, but that is
not the case. While all three of those
certainly equip us for some things,
we often require the experience and
knowledge of others in order to suc-
ceed. It is a wise person who is will-
ing to accept and incorporate this
truth in their life.
This week we find Nehemiah and
many of Jerusalem's residents roll-
ing up their sleeves and beginning
the "good work" of rebuilding the
wall. In fact, Chapter 3 is a tribute to
the collective nature of this work...a
task not achievable by any person
working alone. Forty-two different
sections of the wall and its gates are
mentioned, and described by Nehe-


miah in a counter-clockwise direc-
tion. As you read the names of those
working on each section, note that
Nehemiah's name is conspicuously
absent. As the overseer, his job was
to move from one section to the other,
encouraging and guiding each group
to see that the work continued. He
often is credited as the one who re-
built the wall, but in this chapter, his
own words testify to a much different
scenario. Although God burdened
his heart with the task, Nehemiah de-
pended on the skill and labor of many
others to see it through.
After listing each gate, and those
involved in the repairs, we find that
each priest was responsible to repair
the wall in front of his own house.
This was an excellent approach on
Nehemiah's part to ensure success.
Appointing each man to be respon-
sible for his section of the wall would
guarantee that the wall would not
only be repaired quickly, but properly
as well, since this work would stand
as protection for his family. Like-
wise, if the wall were attacked while
they were working, no one would
fight more vigorously than a man de-
fending his family in close proxim-
ity. By blending self-jnterest with the
group's objectives, Nehemiah capi-
talized on the strength of everyone
present. What a great example to us
as we approach any task: be willing
to seek wisdom and accept help from
others in order to succeed...
Because Every Heart Matters,
Angie

Bruce Sessler of Roberts Funeral
Home in Ocala recently donated a
large supply of materials for students
to construct a storage building as part
of their curriculum.
Students in John Yencho's con-
struction class are now putting on the
finishing touches to the storage build-
ing they have been working on over
the last month using these materials.
"This very generous donation from
Mr. Sessler is a blessing. With mon-
ey being tight these days, it is great
to have benefactors helping our stu-
dents get the materials they need to
learn," Yencho said.
Students are currently selling tick-
ets in an effort to purchase even more
supplies needed for the construction
class. The construction class is ask-
ing for a $10 donation per ticket. See
any of the THS construction class
students or John Yencho to purchase
one of only 200 tickets being sold.
Mr. Yencho can be reached at Tren-
ton High School at 463-3210.

Submitted
On May 17-19, 2012, at 7:00 p.m.
the Trenton Drama Club presents a
musical comedy rendition of "The
Ugly Duckling" entitled "Honk!" at
the Trenton Elementary Auditorium.
Trenton Drama Club (TDC) pres-
ents a new version of the old fairy
tale, "The Ugly Duckling." "Honk!"
is a musical comedy based on the
book and lyrics of Anthony Drewe
and music by George Stiles. The sto-
ry's setting is on a poultry farm and
a large pond where all the characters
hang-out.
"True to the fairy tale, the story
depicts all the human characteristics,
good and bad, that give the audience
a chance to cheer for the "good guys"
and pull for the underdog," Co-direc-
tor Krista Perryman said. "This show
is for kids from 2 to 102, so we hope
everyone will come out and support
our students," continued Perryman.
Students and TDC boosters are
selling ads to be placed in the pro-
grams. If you would like to purchase
a business or personal ad, please con-
tact Krista Perryman at TES, 463-
3224, or John Yencho, TMHS, 463-

will cost $6 for adults and $5 for
children.

Submitted
Registration is now open for the
June 9, 2012, ACTTM. achievement
test. Students who wish to take the
college admission and placement
exam must register before May 4,
2012.
The ACT is a curriculum-based
achievement exam. It tests what stu-

ACT also measures what students
need to know to be ready for entry-
level college-credit courses based on
ACT College Readiness Standards"M.
Every student's results can be tied di-
rectly to these consistent standards.
The cost for the ACT test without
writing is $34. When combined with
the optional ACT Writing Test, the
total cost is $49.50. Students who
qualify may apply for a fee waiver
through their high school counselor.
Most students register online at
www.actstudent.org. Students may
also pick up registration forms from
their high school counseling offices.
Late registration is available until
May 18, 2012, for an extra $21 fee.

Trenton hosted 3A PK Yonge on
April 17th. PK is the front runner in
their district and has had a great sea-
son going 18-4 prior to their contest
with THS. The Tigers started Darren
Skawienski on the mound. Skawien-
ski only gave up one hit but had 4
walks and the defense committed 5
errors behind him. With the score
3-1 and one out in the 5th inning,
Hunter Williams relieved Skawien-
ski. Williams gave up 2 more runs
on 4 hits, 2 walks and a strikeout in
2 1/3 innings of work. Offensively
the Tigers were held to just two hits
by the Blue Wave pitching. The Ti-
gers only score came on a double by
Williams in the 5th with two outs that
scored Cedric Stokes from 1st base.
The Tigers lost 5-1 and fell to 17-6
