Cattle scam costs fair $178,000


By Carrie A. Mizell
FFA and 4-H members who
showed steers at the Suwannee River
Fair will be receiving checks for their
animals, despite con artists' elaborate
scam that will cost the fair $178,000.
One man with Trenton ties has been
arrested in Illinois and investigators
are now searching for a second
suspect Ron Shepard, who has a $1
million bond on his.head. Shepard and
Jeremy Pierce, who turned himself in
to authorities in Illinois, face charges
of Scheme to Defraud.
Gilchrist County resident Larry
Lindsey, owner .of Lindsey Cattle
Company, won the bid to purchase
the steers at the Suwannee River Fair
on March 20 with a resale of $1.11
per pound on fat steers and $1.53 per
pound on feeder steers.
According to Investigator Jimmy
Anderson of the Levy County
Sheriff's Office, Lindsey contracted
with Ron Shepard to pick up and
deliver the cows to United Producers
Inc. in Illinois. Everything seemed to
be going fine, until Shepard did not
return to Florida with the money for
the sale of the cows.
Investigators have determined
that Shepard made the delivery
and received a check from United
Producers, Inc. for the amount of
$200,000.21,' which included all of
the steers from the Suwannee River
Fair and 17 steers Lindsey had
purchased at the Okeechobee County
Fair on March 17, and taken to his
farm near Hart Springs. After taking
possession of the check, Shepard
disappeared. '
Shephard's business partner,
Jeremy Pierce contacted law
enforcement officers in Illinois to file
a missing person's report.
After being contacted by Bell
attorney Ray Earl Thomas, Jr., who
is representing Lindsey, Investigator
Anderson explained that he began
looking into the matter and discovered
other states also have active
investigations regarding the theft of
cattle in Arkansas; Illinois, Missouri,
Kentucky, and Texas. Shepard and
Pierce allegedly scamnied millions
of dollars worth of cattle from all
over the country.
Investigator Anderson also
determined that Shepard had been in
contact with United Producers prior
to his arrival with Lindsey's cattle
and that he had United Producers
write the check meant for Lindsey
to his personal business, Brookfield
Cattle, which is owned by himself
and Pierce. Investigator Anderson
was able to obtain video from a bank
in Illinois showing Jeremy Pierce
depositing the check meant for
Lindsey.
"Somehow, Pierce obtained the
check from Shepard and deposited
it into a second business account
titled Brookport Cattle Company,"
Investigator Anderson stated.

While working with the FBI and
the Florida Division ofAgriculture on
the joint investigation, Investigator
Anderson yielded more than enough
evidence to obtain warrants for both.
Shepard and Pierce.
On April 19, InvestigatorAnderson
met with Circuit Judge David Glant
and secured warrants to arrest
Shepard and Pierce for Scheme to
Defraud. Each warrant had a bond of
$1 million. According to Investigator
Anderson, Pierce had a hearing in
Illinois on Monday and should be
extradited back to Florida.
Investigator Anderson said that
no charges have been filed against
Lindsey at this time.
"We believe he [Lindsey] was
taken by a crook," Anderson said.
However, Investigator Anderson
did say that Lindsey was involved
in a similar scheme to defraud
involving cattle that occurred in
Gilchrist County in the 'late 1990s,
or early 2000s. He was not charged
in that case, but he was working with
Ron Shepard at the time and Shepard
served four years prison time for
his involvement and is currently on
probation. .
"It was the same type of' case,"
Anderson said.
Ray Earl Thomas, Jr., said on
Tuesday that his client, Larry Lindsey
is cooperating with law enforcement,

Brookins said he does not believe
Lindsey was directly involved with
scamming the fair, which he had a
grandchild participating in, but that
does not mean he is not responsible
to pay for the resale of the animals,
which is valued at roughly $178,000.
"He [Lindsey] is solely responsible
because that's who we sold the cattle
to," Brookins said.


In the future, Brookins said the
Suwannee River Fair will require
anyone who purchases the hogs or
steers at the fair for re-sale to wire
money to the fair's bank account
before the animals leave the
fairgrounds.
FFA and '4-H members who
showed hogs and steers at the fair in
March should receive checks for the
sale of their animals within the next
two weeks.


Local soldier visits Bell Pre-K


From the front lines to the front of
the classroom, HM2 William Brad-
ley Rhodes was a special visitor at
Bell Elementary School last week.
Throughout the school year, Ms.
Lovett and Ms. Kathy's Pre-K class
has been sending "Uncle Brad" care
packages each month.
Uncle Brad, as the teacher and
.students call him, is actually the
uncle of Trevor Rhodes who is a
student in the Pre-K class.
A .member of the United States
Navy, Brad has been serving in
Helmand Province Afghanistan
with the 2nd Battalion, 4th Marines,
Echo Company from August 2011
.to March 2012.
Brad is a hospital corpsman
working with the Marine Corps as
their medical provider on the front
lines.
The students were so proud to
meet Uncle Brad -and- finally see
,him in person.
While he was visiting the class,
Brad told the 'students all about the
medals he has been awarded and the
place where he has been stationed
over the last year. Brad also told the
students what he had to do to be-
come a service man. Brad is a 2007
graduate of Bell High School.

COOIG A ONA
COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


"I've always thought anyone can
make money. Making a life worth
living, that's the real test."
-Robert Fulghum

As I've grown older I have learned
to slow down and enjoy the simple
things in life like a Saturday morn-
ing with no place to be other than sit-
ting at our small kitchen table. Last
Saturday was just such a morning; I
enjoyed a hot cup of chicory coffee
and hot biscuit toast slathered with
Mayhaw jelly.
How do you build a life worth liv-
ing? My advice is to slow down and
spend time developing friendships
with like-minded people. Friends re-
ally are treasures that enrich our lives
in countless ways.
My friend, Karen Philman was
telling me about having Beignets (a
type of fried donut) and Chicory Cof-
fee at the Cafe Du Monde in New
Orleans. Shared that the Cafe Du
Monde (founded in 1862) is one of
the places that I would love to visit.
Last week Karen surprised me with
my very own jar of Chicory Coffee,
from the Cafe Du Monde no less,
bless her heart.
I found that the Chicory gave the
coffee a wonderful smokey taste, al-
most like it was toasted over a camp
fire. Speaking of camp fires, while
drinking my steaming cup of Chicory
Coffee my mind traveled back a hun-
dred and fifty years to the time of the
War Between the States. To a time in
our history when Chicory was often
drank due to Southern ports being
blockaded. It is said that Confederate
soldiers had to make do with Chicory,
peanuts, potatoes, or peas all roasted
and used as coffee substitutes. -
I really enjoyed the strong taste but
I must admit I added a little extra half
and half as well as extra sugar.
Biscuit toast is our family's name
. for leftover whipping cream biscuits
that have been cut in half and toasted
in the o6yen until brispy. Most any
homemade biscuit is good toasted,
but we especially like the whipping
cream biscuit toast, it must be-all that
buttery cream that makes the toast so
good.
We all agreed that the Mayhaw
jelly made by our friends Dave and
Virginia Hunt is about the best jelly
we have ever eaten. I'm talking Won-
der-ful. The Hunts cooked down
Mayhaws to make the prettiest pink
jelly which has a taste that just can't
be beat. Mayhaws grow in all the gulf
coast states from Texas to Florida in
the wild.
Mr. Dave said he planted his two
Mayhaw trees about five years ago
and last year they put on their first
fruit of berries. This year he picked
two quart Mason jars of fresh May-
.haws which made eight half-pints of
jelly.
John and I have a couple of May-
haw trees but we will have to wait a
few years until they are old enough
to make fruit. After eating the Hunts'
jelly I can hardly wait.
Friends are such a blessing and
sometimes if you are lucky they pro-
vide an extra special breakfast.

With Spring gardens under way
and lots of South Florida fresh corn
in the grocery stores I thought it
might be a good time to share an old
farm recipe for cream corn. This dish
actually has no added cream the corn
itself provides the cream. I know that
the more seasoned cooks already
know how to make cream or creamed


corn while writing down this recipe
I had the younger cooks in mind
who might have eaten their mother's
or grandmother's cream corn in the
past.
The cream corn of my childhood
was made from field corn that my
father grew to be ground into cattle
feed. He would tell my mother when
it reached the perfect stage of matu-
rity to make good cream corn. We
would shuck it and grate it off the cob
and freeze it. This process took the
better part of a day but in return we
had cream corn during the winter.
Today like everyone else we make
our cream corn from Silver Queen
sweet corn. I have to tell you there
are few things I like better than a big
ol' helping of cream corn.

Farm-Style Cream Corn

12 ears of corn
2 to 3 tablespoons butter
or 1 to 2 tablespoons bacon
grease
Salt and pepper to taste
Shuck corn and remove all the silk.
Grate 'the corn off the cob using a
corn grater. Once the corn has been
grated from the cob scrape the cob
with the sharp edge of a large knife
aka butcher knife. This extra scrap-
ing will remove even more of the
corn juice or cream from the ear. If
you do not have a corn grater you can
slice away the very tops of the corn
kernels with sharp knife then scrape
the cobs to remove the inside of the
kernels and corn cream.'
Melt butter or bacon grease in cast
iron frying pan and add corn. Cook
over medium 'heat until it begins to
thicken and bubble around the edges,
add salt and pepper to, taste. Do not
cook too long, really good cream
corn only takes ten minutes or less to
cook. Stir the corn the whole time it
is cooking.
Note: Cream Corn is best served
with fresh acre peas, sliced tomatoes,
and fried yellow squash.

Comments

By John M. Ayers
The THS Alumni Class Reunion
was an enjoyable event on Satuiday.
There were a lot of people in atten-
dance and the reunion committee did
a fabulous job with all aspects of the
event.
Attending this event was like tak-
ing a step back in time. Listening to
men like Mr. Frank Colson, Mr. Max-
ie Love and Mr. LT Lord talk about
playing football for the Tigers in the
late 40s and up until they graduated
in 1951; I can just imagine. In those
days football was a tough man's
game.
Cindy Jo and I were able to get
a seat at the table with Mr. Doug
Beach, Mr. Thomas Scott and Mr.
Gene Wiggins, Mr. and Mrs. David
Welch and many other alumni. Al-
though these people are residents of
the Trenton area, some of the stories
they shared with us made that trip
to THS of yesterday, just that much
more entertaining.
When I stood up and looked around
the cafeteria, seeing the many faces
of yesterday, it reminded me of the
days when I went to basketball games
in the old Trenton High School gym.
In those days, the windows .would
be opened and the people would
have the bleachers filled to capacity.
Some of the most memorable games
were the events when Trenton played
Cedar Key for the Suwannee River
Conference championship. I believe
this would have been in the mid-60s
as the Tigers were loaded with tal-
ent, height and fan support. These
games would always go down to the
buzzer and they were always memo-'
rable. Some of these athletes were
Holt Browning, Mike Watson, Dan-
ny Wilson, Jimmy Slaughter, Buddy
Vickers and the list goes on and on.
The fan attendance for the teams in
these days were completely commu-
nity supported. The basketball, foot-
ball and even baseball games were
exciting events each and every home

Prescribed burn
season has begun

Prescribed bum season has begun
in North Central Florida. Between


December and April is the usual time
for the Division of Forestry, landown-
ers and other land management agen-
cies to begin increasing the number
of prescribed bums they conduct on
forest lands.
During the winter and early spring
months, the weather conditions are
more favorable to have prescribed
burn situations. The vegetation on
the ground is in its dormant (or non-
growing) state, humidity is lower and
dispersion rates are higher. A disper-
sion index rating is a measurement
of how high the smoke from a fire is
expected to rise into the atmosphere,
which lessens smoke problems on
nearby roads and for homeowners.

Changes in drop-off/pick-up at TES


By Carrie A. Mizell
With the 5th grade returning to
Trenton Elementary School in Au-
gust 2012, the Gilchrist County
School Board has approved a proj-
ect that will change the drop-off/
pick-up at the school.
An increase in traffic is expected
to come with the addition of some
100 .students at the elementary.
School officials are already working
to.accommodate the move, which is
slated for the 2012-13 school year.
During a special called meet-
ing last week, the Gilchrist County
School Board members voted to
'approve the project, which will
extend the drop-off/pick-up loop
at the school to the west, leaving
the east side of the loop like it has
been in the past. The project draw-
ing also includes the addition of a
west-bound turning lane when exit-
ing the loop.
"We have already contracted with
engineers," explained Superinten-
dent Don Thomas. "We will be go-
ing out for bid as soon as possible
in an effort to get the project started
and completed prior to the start of
the new school year in August."
The placement of where students
are dropped off and picked up will
be moved further to the west in the
loop.' This move is expected to ex-


Governor

is taking

applications

for school

board seat

By Carrie A. Mizell
Anyone interested in serving on the
Gilchrist County School Board can,
now fill out a questionnaire online
and possibly be appointed to fill the
District 5 seat.
In order to apply' for the position,
an applicant would need to complete
a Gubernatorial Appointments
Questionnaire that can be found on
the governor's website at: www.flgov.
com/appointments After reviewing
the applications, Governor Rick Scott
will appoint someone to fill Michelle
Carter's seat on the school board.
Carter will resign from her seat,
effective November 19, 2012,
at % which time she will move to
Pensacola to be with her husband, Al,
who was transferred to the Panhandle
by his employer AT&T. Carter made
the decision to make her resignation
effective November 19, 2012, in
an effort to keep the governor from
appointing someone to finish out the
remaining two years of her term in
office, because she felt like the voters
in Gilchrist County should choose
someone to fill her position on the
board. However, a misunderstanding
within the Gilchrist County
Supervisor of Election's Office has
led to the governor's appointment.
According to Katherine Bixler, of
the Appointments Office of Governor
Rick Scott,, it is preferable that an
applicant live in the same district
from which the former member
resigned.
"The appointment is up to the
discretion of the governor; therefore,
there is not a deadline and we are
accepting applications as the current
member's. end date approaches,"
Bixler explained.


pand the length of the drop-off area,
while allowing more cars in the loop
and off State Road 26.
"We are aware that there will still
be times during the year when traffic
in the loop will be a problem," said
Thomas. "However, we are working
hard to improve the flow when con-
sidering an average day of traffic."
According to Thomas, the school
is planning to implement new proce-
dures for drop-off and pick-up once
the project is completed and those
procedures will be announced at the
start of the new school year.
Currently, therd are two lanes in
the drop-off, pick-up loop and that
will not change. However, the lanes


will be moved towards State Road
26 and will begin next to the board
fence bordering the Rails for Trails
on the TES side of the fence. Park-
ing will be moved to the inside
median and be on both sides of the
median.
By extending the loop to the
west, additional parking spots will
be added. Moving the parking to
the inside of the loop will provide
an easier way to back out and leave
during the pick-up and drop-off
time.
Summer traffic at the school is
expected to be re-routed to the bus
loop area when necessary while the
project is underway.

The Fanning Springs City Council
and the Trenton City Commission
met jointly in a workshop meeting
with the Gilchrist County Commis-

Thirty-Three Years Of Perfection
(Kent Heaton)


Establishing a perfect record is a milestone of huge
proportions. The 1972 Miami Dolphins had a perfect
'season including defeating the Washington Redskins for
Super Bowl VII. Philip Htimber of the Chicago White
Soxs pitched a perfect game on April 21, 2012 against the
Seattle Mariners. Many records reflect flawlessness such
as perfect attendance to school, perfect scores on tests,
perfect musical performances and so forth. Consider living
for thirty-three years without one mistake; or even more
consider how a man could live thirty-three years and never
transgress the law of God.
The phrase "without sin" is only found twice in
scripture. The first time is in John 8:7 when Jesus was
presented with a woman caught in adultery. He knew the
scribes and Pharisees were testing Him and after writing
on the ground He said, "He who is without sin among
you, let him throw a stone at her first" (John 8:7). No
man is without sin. "All have sinned and fall short of the
glory of God" (Romans 3:23).
A second time the phrase is found is in Hebrews 4:15.
"For we do not have a High Priest who cannot
sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points
tempted as we are, yet without sin." The Hebrew writer is
speaking of Jesus Christ who partook "offlesh and blood,
He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through
death He might destroy him who had the power of death,
that is, the devil" (Hebrews 2;14). Jesus was "holy,
harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has
become higher than the heavens" (Hebrews 7:26). He
knew no sin (2 Corinthians 5:21), He committed no sin (1
Peter 2:22) and "in Him is no sin" (1 John 3:5).
it is possible to live one day without sinning but can we


imagine .living 12,045 days (rounding out thirty-three
years) without ONE sin? Jesus did! He did so with the
power of prayer, the courage of His faith, the tenacity of
the Holy Spirit and the willingness to do the Father's will
(Matthew 4:4). The struggle of His flesh against the spirit
must have been a colossal battle with Satan. How tender
those words on the cross when he whispered, "It is
finished" (John 19:30). His battle with the devil was over
and He had gained the final victory.
If Jesus can do that why should I not live to defeat sin?
We do fail and we do sin but this does not excuse us but
rather show our greater need for the grace of God and the
saving power of the sinless Son of God. Even if we were
able to live one year without sin (not possible) we could
never attain the perfection of thirty-three years. Jesus lived
perfectly with the graces of 2 Peter 1:5-7. We fail because
we fail in one of these measures. One sin makes us
indebted to the perfect life of Jesus Christ. All men are
indebted to Jesus Christ. This shows the saving power of
His blood.
Jesus was killed on a cross and He had not committed any
crime worthy of death nor committed a crinie against His
Father. The blood of Jesus flows with perfection. Salvation
through His blood is a sacrifice that is "without blemish"
for thirty-three. years! "Knowing that you were not
redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from
your aimless conduct received by tradition from your
.fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a
lamb without blemish and without spot" (1 Peter 1:18-19).
What an amazing Savior we have that left a legacy of
perfection that we can follow. Thirty-three years. He lived
perfect so that we could be perfected (Hebrews 10:14).

Tyler Mehl John Rowe

Bell basketball players

named All-Area All Stars


By Elli Carrenza
Recently, Bell basketball players
Tyler Mehl and John Rowe were an-
nounced as All-Area All Star players.
This honorable mention is recognized
among local counties that our high
school basketball teams play such
as Union, Alachua, and Levy coun-
ties. Tyler Mehl, who was Bell High
School's senior forward center, made
the first team of All- Star players and
John Rowe, currently a junior and
who played forward guard, made the
second team. Tyler Mehl averaged
10 points and 10 rebounds per game
while John Rowe averaged 13 points
Snd 9 rebounds per game.
In addition, Tyler Mehl and his
teammate, Austin Bell, are 4-year
letterman basketball players. Both
of them have never been beaten by
Branford, Mayo, or Dixie. They have
also gone 6-2 against Trenton, 8-0
against Bronson in the regular sea-


son, 8-0 against Cedar Key, and 5-0
against Chiefland. P.K.. Yonge, Haw-
thorne High School, and St. Francis
were the toughest teams they have
played. They have done very well
against the local public schools that
they have played.
Fortunately, Tyler Mehl and John
Rowe were not the only students
from Bell to receive this awesome
accomplishment. Olivia Bailey and
Reilee Moore of the Bell Basketball
Girls Varsity team also made All-Star
teams. Olivia made the first team and
Reilee made the second team.
Congratulations to Tyler Mehl,
John Rowe,' Olivia Bailey, and Re-
liee Moore on this amazing and dis-
tinguished award! An extended hand
also goes out to Coach Mehl and
Coach Carnley for having led their
teams and these awesome players
into an awesome season! Go Bull-
dogs!

The benefit event held on Sunday,
April 22, for Old Town fire victims
Donnie and Marcy Conlin was a huge
success. Their home burned down in
March while they were out of town.
Other than a slight delay from that
morning's showers, the event went
very well. The American Legion,
Post 383, of Old Town, is to be enthu-
siastically applauded for generously
hosting, catering and supporting this
benefit concert and fundraiser. "Big
Mike" Nasca, of CRF in Chiefland,
supplied the stage tent and staging
for the show. Dixie County's C.O.P.S.
volunteers assisted with parking for
the hundreds of attendees, and Jimmy
Norris went above and beyond by be-
ing there in the morning to set up the
stage and PA, act as stage manager
throughout the day, and finally taking
the stage to close out the show with.
Section 8. The final collected total for
donated auctioned items, food sales,


raffle tickets for a donated Fender
guitar, 50/50 drawings and other cash
donations greatly exceeded expecta-
tions.
The event drew the crowds, but
it was the live music that kept them
there. This benefit was really more of
an all-day music festival. Local area
bands that donated their time and ser-
vices included Spare Parts, Sabal,
The Rock Bluff Band, The Saltwater
Cowboys. Dotti South & the Slack-
ers, Roann Jackson, Steel Bridge and
Section 8.
What caused the concert to fall
further and further behind was the
success of the five auctions that were
held between acts. Competitive (and
most generous) bidding on donated
items drew the auctions out much


longer than had been anticipated.
Area businesses that graciously con-
tributed include Bubba's Place, Catch
the Drift, the Brick Grill, Let's Eat,
Mary's Country Deli, Fairytale Farm,
Flying Hawk, Dakotah Winery, the
Old Town Tavern, Custom Accesso-
ries, Old Town Hardware, Suwannee
River Scuba, Bobby Ray's Tree Ser-
vice, Chainsaw Harry, Tammy's Sand
Bar and Dixie Music Center. Suwan-
nee River Eagles #4520 also made a
sizable cash donation.
It is events like this one that prove
what a generous community we are
all fortunate enough to call home.
Sincere appreciation is offered to all
that contributed, and to any person
or business that may have been over-
looked, thank you!

The SVL/Gilchrist League's Pro
Steam 2000 participated in the 7th
annual Santa Fe Madness Minor lOu
Tournament over the past weekend
in Alachua. The tournament is com-
prised of 20 teams from all around
North Florida Cal Ripken Baseball.
In Friday night's opening pool play
game, SVL beat Waldo by a score
of 17-1 and in the second pool play
game Saturday afternoon, beat Ala-
chua Dental 17-0, Wyatt Thornton,
Wyatt Langford, and Jason DeMar-
tino led the pitching with a combined
performance for both games and the
entire team led in defense, hitting,
and run production. These two vic-
tories and point differential earned
SVL ProSteam2000 the #1 seed for
'the tournament.
Sunday afternoon SVL faced a
very talented #4 seed Union County
in the semi-finals. Union County
jumped out early, but SVL, behind
pitching performances of Thornton


and Langford, and timely hitting by
Parker Ferguson, -Garrett Brooker,
Zach Ford, Levi Ferguson, & Lang-
ford, ended up with a 9-5 victory.
The win advanced the #1 SVL to face
the #2 Williston Yankees for Sunday
night's championship.
SVL again found themselves in an
early deficit, this time with the Wil-
liston Yankees jumping out to an ear-
ly lead 2-0. Williston was also led by
outstanding pitching, but SVL kept
it close the entire game and battled
back to make it 4-3 in the bottom of
the sixth inning before a deep ball hit
to centerfield by Jason DeMartino
was caught for the final out. DeMar-
tino started the game on the mound
and pitched 5 solid innings on 53 to-
tal pitches, giving up only 2 hits and
2 walks, while striking out 9 Willis-
ton batters. Thornton came on in the
sixth in relief and did a great job by
striking out the final 2 batters tO give
SVL the chance of coming back. Un-
fortunately, 4 fielding errors on the

The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District needs your help.
The public needs .to attend the meet-
ings to let them' know citizens are
concerned. The governing board
generally meets at the District head-
quarters outside Live Oak on the sec-
ond Tuesday of each month at 9:00
a.m. A link to see the schedule may
be viewed at http://www.srwmd.state.
fl.us/index.aspx?nid=133.
North Florida is in the midst of a
very serious water crisis that requires
strong and meaningful actions be tak-
en soon. Springs are ceasing to flow,
the lakes are dropping daily, and the
river levels keep going down. All
this means the aquifer .is very low,
too, and that's our drinking water
and wildlife's. Also our bath water,
lawn water, toilet flushing water, and
so on.
The governing board of the Dis-
trict needs to know the public is con-
cerned about our current situation.
They cannot unless some of us are
there each meeting. Please try to find
time in your schedule to attend a few
of these meetings or even one. The
staff desperately -needs the public to
attend the governing board meetings
to voice their concern and/or to make
requests for action.

U.S. Dept. of

Labor youth

labor rules

Submitted
Last September, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Labor proposed regulations
regarding child labor safety rules for
agriculture and agriculture-related
jobs. By Thursday evening, the DOL
changed its mind.
"I am pleased 'the Labor Depart-
ment chose to withdraw their pro-
posed rules that would have drasti-
cally impacted the ability of many
young people to work in agriculture,"
Florida Farm Bureau president John
Hoblick expressed. "I appreciate the
willingness of the administration to
listen to the people who expressed
their concern with this proposal."
The proposed rules would have
limited the ability of children to
perform common farm jobs such as
working around animals, working
with power-driven tools such as bat-
tery-powered screwdrivers or weed
wackers, or working at any height
over six feet.
"My experiences as a young man
working on my family's farm taught
me many valuable lessons," Hoblick
continued. "I am glad that many
young people in this generation will
have the same opportunity I had.
Florida Farm Bureau will continue to
work to ensure that parental exemp-
tions remain intact as well as pro-
mote the importance of farm safety
in all aspects of farm life."
In withdrawing their rule, DOL
issued a statement saying, "The de-
cision to withdraw this rule--includ-
ing provisions to define the 'parental
exemption' -was made in response to
thousands of comments expressing
concerns about the effect of the pro-
posed rules on small family-owned
farms."


Annette Derks

Character Council's

Personality

of the Month

for May

Submitted
Persuasiveness is the guidance a
person gives of vital truths in assist-
ing another past one's mental road-
blocks. Persuasiveness points others
in the right direction; does not stretch
the truth to make it more attractive;
appeals to a person's conscience in
term of character; waits for the best
time; and does not argue. Persua-
siveness is sharing truth in a way.
others can understand. One might
easily misinterpret persuasiveness as
guiding people around their mental
roadblocks.
However, persuasiveness is not
guiding people, it is guiding infor-
mation. Persuasiveness never ma-
nipulates people into submitting to
someone else's will. It does not force
them into a comer or threaten then&i
into compliance. It simply exposes
people to truth they could not other-
wise see before. In other words, per-
suasiveness looks for the most effec-
tive way to communicate a message,
by helping them to see the light.
This month the Character Council
is highlighting the personality of Mrs..
Annette Derks. In 2006, Derks set-
tled with her family here in Gilchrist
County from St. Petersburg. This en-
thusiastic lady is the Admissions and
Marketing Director of Ayers Health
and Rehab Center. She attends Fan-
ning Springs Community Church
and looks to God for the strength she
needs in completing the aspects each
day of her employment.
Derks has a genuine love for peo-
ple and believes that each person she
meets is not by accident, is ordained
of God, and has a divine purpose.
She uses these occasions as'an open
window to empower people in assist-
ing them to understand themselves,
while igniting in them what they can
do to use an idea they have and carry
it through to fruition.
Derks believes that life gives us
opportunities to help others, and be-
ing passionate about assisting them
around their roadblocks brings re-
wards to both the giver and the re-
ceiver. She counts it a privilege to
using her position at Ayers to pray
for the people who are brought her
way, while empowering them to turn
around and help others. She keeps
the following Scripture verse in her
mind as she sees that truth brings
freedom in the lives of other people.
"There is therefore now no condem-
nation to them which are in Christ Je-
sus, who walk not after the flesh, but
after the spirit." Romans 8:1

9th Annual Character Celebration held


By Geneva Cornwell
The weather was beautiful and ful-
ly cooperative in bringing guests and
Character Council members to the
9th annual Character Celebration.
The celebration was held on
Tuesday, April 24, 2012, at the Bell
Community Center. With purple, as
its usual color scheme, depicted in
decorations on each dining table, the
house was filled with a memorable.
time of fellowship, good eats, and the
second annual dessert auction, which
brought lots of laughter and delight.
The main dish at the dinner con-
sisted of kabobs, along with all the
trimmings of vegetables, roasted po-
tatoes, salad, and dinner rolls.
President Pete Randolph and Vice
President Cindy Slaughter took turns
distributing framed certificates to
the 2011-2012 personalities of the
month.
Certificates of appreciation were
also handed out to many individuals,
businesses, and agencies which as-
sisted the Council in making the past
year a success.
Council photographer, Cheryl
Etheridge, was kept busy throughout
the evening using her skill in snap-
ping pictures of all of the activity, as
well as of each group of people who
came forward to receive a certificate.
Once again, Daniel Jeralds, re-
turned to entertain everyone, and act
as the .auctioneer. for the, evening.
Nearly twenty desserts were donated
to raise funds for the Council's trea-
sury.
-The bije_.,t bafnle-of-the-bids were
over the "Hones Pecan Squares,"
which were donated by' Jim and
Myrtle Scruggs. The highest bidder
was Jeffrey Skubi. Along with the


Scruggs' dessert, among the other county, while remembering that good
desserts auctioned off, were cakes, character brings success.

The sweetest moments (no pun in-

(Kendal Silka), Cat and Ugly.
After running away, Ugly meets
some incredible characters. The bull-
frog (Brandon Porter), helps Ugly un-
derstand that there is always "some-
one out there whose gonna love ya"
in a final number, "Warts and All."
Others in leading roles are Turkey
(Abijah Herrin), Henrietta (Kylie
Johnson), Maureen (Emily Goetsche;
Grace (Kaitlyn Ashford), Beaky
(Sami Johsnon-Striet), Fluff (Allie

Grace Ministry builds Picnic Pavilion

Grace Ministry of Florida recently built a 20' x 40'Picnic Pavilion at their Grace Ranch facility. This
project was made possible by a financial grant from Capital City Bank. The men's group from Rock Sink
Baptist Church in Old Town provided the labor and spent the good part of a Saturday building the pa-
vilion. We want to say a huge thanks to all of those involved. Our organization helps those battling with
drugs and alcohol and those coming for help will benefit from this generosity for many years to come.

Over 200 attend THS Reunion


By John M. Ayers
The Trenton High School
Cafeteria was filled with moments
of reminiscing on Saturday at lunch
as the annual Trenton High School
Alumni Reunion had a record
attendance of 220 people. Mrs.
Gertrude Slaughter, a member of
the 1938 class and Mrs. Lizzie Mae
Stephens, the only member of the
1939 class in attendance enjoyed
themselves as they talked with many
people in, attendance. These ladies
have now reached the ages of 92 and
93 respectively. Everyone was busy
enjoying themselves, talking with
fellow alumni from their era that they
had not seen or visited with in many
years.
The alumni celebration began
with a social hour at 11 a.m. to allow
old friends to renew acquaintances.
The THS grads attending enjoyed
talking and greeting each other right
up through lunch. Just before the
meal, John Vickers, the Master' of
Ceremonies, welcomed everyone
as they found seats at the luncheon
tables. The reunion committee
welcomed everyone to the annual
event when they came through the
door to register, and pickup a name
tag with the date of the class each
alumnus was a member of. John
Vickers, a member of the Class of
1967, presented several FSU lines of
laughter to get the crowd loosened
up. When the crowd began to enjoy
the jabbing back at the U of F alumni
attending, he commented on the
older alumni class members that
were in attendance, as he added he
was now a member of this class. Mr.
David Welch, a member of the 1953
THS class and one of three alumni
involved in getting this reunion to be
held annually over ten years ago. Mr.
Welch led the group in prayer before
lunch.
A meal of barbecue pork, grilled
chicken, sausage, green beans,
macaroni and cheese, baked beans,
fresh baked yeast rolls and dessert
with a drink was a delicious treat for
everyone.
The celebration began following
lunch as the Class of 1962 was
recoglAized as they celebrated their
50th anniversary.


Members of the Class of 1944 attending were Bob Denny, left, Milba Hardee Milligan, Emma Lou Curry
NesSmith and Harold Mikell.


Maxey Love, Frank Colson and LT Lord are shown left to right. These
alumni football standouts were members of the Class of 1951..


Bill May addressed the group to
give some moments of remembrance
of his years at THS. He explained
that in his years of public service
in traveling all over the world, the
education he. received from Trenton
High School had prepared him for
whatever he encountered. Many


alumni traveled to attend the reunion
including Jim Home, a member of
the 1962 class who now resides in
Montana.
A special recognition was held for
the Class of 1963 which celebrated
their 49th reunion. Many of these
class members were ih attendance at


Mrs. Gertrude' Slaughter of the
Class.of 1936.

the reunion and they thanked the class
reunion committee for producing
and hosting such an -outstanding
celebration.
John Vickers gave a roll call of each
,of the THS classes. The members of
each class attending stood together
for a photo.

By Todd Bryant
The District 6 1A baseball
tournament was held at Trenton last
week. The tournament began on
Tuesday with Hawthorne beating
Cedar Key 9-0 and Bronson defeating
Bell 4-0. On Thursday afternoon
Hilliard defeated Hawthorne 3-0
and Trenton took on Bronson in the
twilight game.
Trenton started junior right hander
Hunter Parrish on the mound. Parrish
got through the first inning one, two,
three. The Tigers scored two in the
first inning after Darren Skawienski
doubled in Jonathan Smith and

Parrish got in a forced rundown
between first and second base. In
the second inning Bronson got one
back after the Tigers committed two
errors: The Tiger bats were silent in
the second inning and the score was
2-1 Trenton after 2 innings. In the
third inning, Parrish gave up three
consecutive hits and was relieved by
Stephen Smith. Smith gave up two

making the score 3-2 Bronson: In the

5 more runs across in the bottom of
the fourth inning. Jonathan Smith,
Hunter Parrish, Ozie Parrish, Cedric
Stokes and Hamp Cheevers all
scored putting the Tigers up 9-4 after
4 innings. Bronson scored 2 more
in the fifth but was held scoreless in
the 6th and 7th. Ozie Parrish made a


great over the shoulder catch in the
first base foul area in the 6th inning to
help the cause. The Tigers won 9-6 in
a close contest. For the Tigers Hunter
Parrish pitched 2 1/3 innings giving
up 3 runs on 4 hits with no walks or

crowd was buzzing and the THS
players were ready to take on the
Flashes for the 3rd time this season.
In the first two meetings the Tigers
had won both matches by scores of
1-0 and 8-1. Hilliard started senior
Kyle Simmons on the mound and
Trenton started their ace, Darren
Skawienski. Skawienski turned
in another stellar performance
throwing his 3rd complete game of
the season. He struck out 11 while
only walking 2. In seven innings
of work Skawienski gave up 4 hits
on only 78 pitches. Simmons did a
great job for Hilliard and only gave
up 5 hits. In the 1st inning Bryant
doubled with 2 outs but was left
stranded. In the 3rd inning Stephen
Smith singled and stole 2nd. With no
outs he was moved to 3rd on a single
by Jonathan Smith. With Bryant up,
Stephen scored on a pass ball and
Jonathan moved to second. Bryant


grounded out to tne znd baseman and
Jonathan moved to 3rd with one out
but the Tigers were not able to push
Jonathan across home plate. In the
4th inning with the score 1-0 and 2
outs when 7th grader Michael Smith
walked followed by a single to right
field by 8th grader Hamp Cheevers.
The right fielder misplayed Cheevers
line drive and Michael was able
to score and Cheevers made it to
third. Stephen Smith then singled in
Michael Smith for the 3rd run. The
Tigers were unable to score in the
5th or 6th innings but played great
defense behind Skawienski. Hilliard
had bases loaded with two outs in the
6th inning but hit an infield pop fly
that Hunter Parrish was able to bring
down and in the 7th inning Cheevers
ran down a sure double in left field
that he caught on the fence. The
Tigers won 3-0 and and improved its
record to 20-6 overall, winning the
district for the first time since 1983.
