announces candidacy for

superintendent of schools


To the Residents of Gilchrist Coun-
ty:
"Education is not the means of
showing people how to get what
they want. Education is an exercise
by means of which enough men,
it is hoped, will learn to want what
is worth having." -Ronald Reagan.
Conviction and a willingness to act are
the greatest tools of any leader. Our
convictions should lead our actions,
and our actions should be influenced
by our heads and our hearts, neither
one independently. My convictions
are based in a belief that there is no
greater professional calling and no
place where one can make a greater
impact in our community than by in-
vesting in the future of our children. I
passionately believe in and am com-
mitted to the support of our educa-
tional system. Our amazing team of
educators, district and school support
staff, administration, transportation,
operations, finance, food service,
MIS, human resources, etc. are all

vitally important to the success and
overall implementation of a balanced
and efficient school district.' Gil-
christ County's team needs the tools,
resources, and administrative support
necessary to provide an education for
our children that will ensure that they
are prepared and competitive when
they enter the workforce, college, or
technical school. Our students need
a strong foundation on which to build
vital experiences, a passion for learn-
ing, and a drive for self-improvement.
They need to be proud of where they
come from and confident that they
can succeed in whatever they seek
to accomplish. Education should be
celebrated and appreciated as a free-
dom that no one can take away.
It is with this conviction and pride
that I, Christie McElroy, would like
to announce my intent to seek the
office of Superintendent of Gilchrist
County Schools. My sincere desire
is to lead the students, families, and
educators of Gilchrist County with
dignity and respect. I believe in our
educational system and am commit-
ted to providing the support teachers
need to fulfill their responsibilities
in the classroom. I amalso commit-
ted to improving morale of all em-
ployees, the level of communication

By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County natives Thomas
Scott and the late Louis Lee Roberts
were inducted into the Trenton Hall
of Fame on May 22, 2012.
Trenton City Commissioner
Randy Rutter presented plaques
to Thomas Scott and the Roberts
family in front of a crowded Trenton
Community Center. Rutter also read
short biographies written about each
man and their contributions to the
community they call home.
Thomas Earl Scott was born in
Gilchrist County on May 19, 1934.
He grew up on a farm located near
what is now Overstreet's mulch mill
on US 129. After graduating from
Trenton High School, Mr. Scott
married Lois Seiler in February 1954
and the two recently celebrated their
58th anniversary.
Mr. Scott worked as a mechanic
for Hope Colson Chevrolet before
serving in the U.S. Army. After
completing his service in the Army,
he returned home to Trenton in 1959
and his job at Hope Colson. During
this time, he also began volunteering
with' the Trenton Fire Department.
Fifty-two years later and Mr. Scott
continues to serve with the Trenton
Fire Department today.
In 1969, Mr. Scott began teaching
auto mechanics at Trenton High
School and continued in that
profession for 27 years. It was
while working at THS, that Mr.
Scott's unusual nickname "Scooch"
originated. As the story goes, a


student wanted to send Mr. Scott a
Christmas card, but apparently was
not sure how to correctly spell his
last name, the result was "Scooch"
instead of "Scott." Other students
noticed the misspelling and began
calling him Mr. Scooch.
In the early 1970s, Mr. Scott also
began working as a part-time deputy
sheriff. After, retiring from teaching
school, Mr. Scott decided that he was
not busy enough, so he went back
to full-time work with the Sheriff's
Office as a bailiff, where he is still
employed.
"With 52 years as a volunteer
firefighter, 27 years teaching
our community's 'young people
and decades of work as a law
enforcement officer, one could argue
that Thomas "Scooch" Scott could be
the true definition of public service,"
Commissioner Rutter said.
Mr. Scott, who is a member of Pine
Grove Baptist Church, had many
friends and several family members
who attended last week's Hall of
Fame induction. Mr. Scott's -sister
Karen Folks traveled from Carrabelle
to support her brother.
In presenting a plaque to the Lee
Roberts family, Commissioner Rutter
said, "If you were restricted to only a
few words to describe Lee Roberts,
you would do well to use these: One
very busy man."
Louis Lee Roberts was born in 1907
on the family farm located between
Cherry Sink and the Suwannee
River. His parents, Frank and Mary


Jane Roberts, had homesteaded the
property in Gilchrist County in 1880.
Mr. Roberts was one of 11 children.
In 1926, Mr. Roberts married Elma
Arrington of Trenton. ,They were
married for 63 years. The Roberts'
had two children, a son, Dr. Wendell
Roberts and a daughter, attorney
Sharon Henderson.
In the late 1920s, the Roberts
moved to Bradenton where Mr.
Roberts worked as a barber. When
they returned to Trenton in the 1930s,
Mr. Roberts opened a barber shop
and his wife opened one of the first
beauty shops in Trenton. During this
time period and up until the early
1950s, the barber shop was a hub
for the community. The farmers and
their families would come to town
on Saturday to shop. The barber
shop would often stay open until late
at night and open early on Sunday
mornings to accommodate every
customer.
In the 1940s, Mr. Roberts purchased
the Allis Chalmers tractor and farm
equipment business. He employed a
blacksmith who could fashion specific
parts for the tractors in order to keep
the farmers in operation. He took so
many horses and mules in trade on
tractors that he, in turn, opened a
stable. Mr. Roberts was one of the
first dealers of the newly invented
Allis Chalmers corn combine and
sold the combines to customers as far
as Venezuela. He was also president
of the National Association of Farm
Implement Dealers.


During -the late 1940s, Mr.
Roberts opened and operated Lee
Roberts Motors, selling Dodge and
Plymouth vehicles. In his spare
time, he operated a feed and .seed
store, a dry cleaning store and had
a peanut shelling business. He also
ran the Trenton watermelon auction,
operated Hilltop Dairy and along
with his brother, Marvis, grew
watermelons, peanuts, hay, hayseeds
and corn on 1,000 acres of land that is
now Lancaster Correctional Institute.
Mr. Roberts also operated a bottled
gas and appliance store and was the
first to sell televisions in Trenton in
the 1950s. According to Mr. Roberts!
family, he had other business interests
as well.
Not only was he a business leader,
but Mr. Roberts was also a spiritual
leader, establishing Church of
Christ congregations in Chiefland,
Newberry, and Williston. He
preached at various times at Cherry
Sink Church of Christ, the Trenton
Church of Christ and the University
City Church of Christ in Gainesville.
According to his family, Mr. Roberts
officiated at literally hundreds of
weddings and funerals in the area.
Another facet of Mr. Roberts' life
was politics. In the 1970s, he served
as the Gilchrist County campaign
manager to elect Governor Claude
Kirk.
Mr. Roberts was a true Gator fan,
always purchasing season tickets. He

COOKING AND


Last Thursday, the crew (Allie, age
3 and Gus, who just turned 3) and
I took our first trip together to Hart
Springs.
Last summer we were regulars at
Otter Springs. The duo has grown a
lot since then and I thought we could
branch out this year. To say we had a
good time is an understatement.
I was surprised to see that we had
the whole place to ourselves. The
children are so young they got in the
springs free and it only cost me $4 to
enjoy Hart Springs for an entire day.
Let me put in a plug for Hart
Springs; it is very well-maintained
and they have a nice store now and a
great playground just right for young
children.
Sadly, the spring itself is extremely
low, but on the other hand it is low
enough for younger children to en-
joy.
Allie and Gus had a wonderful time
chasing little fish in the shallow wa-
ter and playing in the sand. Our pea-
nut butter and jelly sandwich picnic
was a big hit as well as the climbing
on the playground's tree house.
I truly believe that time spent mak-
ing memories is very important, you
know those kind of niemories that are
made when you turn off the TV and
put away all the hand-held gaming
devices and phones.
We started our springs visit with a
walk out to the Suwannee River on
the boardwalk. The crew really loved
walking under the canopy of trees that
shade most of the boardwalk. Their
little minds are full of tall tales these
days and it did not take Allie long to
come up with one. The conversation
went something like this:-
Allie: "Me-Me, I don't know, but I
think we might be in a swamp?"
Me-Me: "Yes, we are."
Gus: "Swamp! Where are them
deers?"
, Allie: "Gus-ee, I see some tracks.,
outthere in those woods."
Gus: "Where,'s them deertracks.
Allied, show me."
Allie: "Gus-ee, those are not deer
tracks, they are big, giant, dragon
tracks."
Gus: "Where is them dragon tracks,
I will track down that ol' dragon."
Me-Me: "Gus, what would you do
if you found a dragon at the end of
the tracks?"
Gus: "Me-Me, I would slay that big
dragon for.Allie that's what I'd do."
Needless to say, those two keep me
hopping! They are at such a fun stage
now, everyday is a new grand adven-
ture not only for the crew, but also for
this ol' Me-Me.


CARRYING' ON


These cupcakes remind me of Zuc-
chini Bread, but they do not take
nearly as long to bake and everyone
loves a cupcake these days. Allie and
Gus gave them the thumbs up so I
know they are good.

Garden Fresh Cupcakes

1 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2/3 cups canola oil or vegetable
oil
2 large eggs, beaten
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 cup grated carrots .
1 cup grated zucchini
1/2 chopped pecans, optional
Cinnamon Cream Frosting
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Sift flour
then measure. Combine flour with
baking powder, baking soda, salt,
sugar, and cinnamon in mixing bowl,
set aside.
In another bowl, combine oil, beat-
en eggs ahd vanilla beat well with
a whisk. Then add carrots, zucchini
and pecans; stir well and add to dry
ingredients and mix all well with a
big spoon. Spoon into well- greased
regular-size muffin pan and bake for
30 minutes. This recipe makes 10
cupcakes.
Cinnamon Cream
Frosting

3-ounce package cream cheese
3 tablespoons softened butter '
2 cup confectioners sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon cinnamohi
Beat cream cheese until fluffy, add
butter and beat well. Add the confec-
tioners sugar, vanilla and cinnamon,
beat on high speed for 1 minute.
Spread on. top of cooled cupcakes
and place one pecan half on top of
each frosted cupcake.
I used a hand-held mixer to beat
this frosting. At first it seemed too
dry but as I continued to beat the
consistency became perfect.

Everyone Is Looking For You
(Kent Heaton)


The fame of Jesus spread throughout the region of
Galilee following the healing of the demon possessed man
in Capernaum (Mark 1:21). Arriving at the house of Peter
and Andrew the disciples found Peter's mother-in-law sick
of a fever. Jesus heals her and his notoriety continues.
Mark records, "At evening, when the sun had set, they
brought to Him all who were sick and those who were
demon-possessed. And the whole city was gathered
together at the door. Then He healed many who were
sick with various diseases, and cast out many demons;
and He did not allow the demons to speak, because they
knew Him" (Mark 1:32-34).
Early the next morning Jesus goes by Himself to a
solitary place to pray. Peter and the other disciples look
for the Lord and after finding Him say, "Everyone is
looking for you" (Mark 1:37). The previous day's
activities were notable' events as so many people were
healed. With the dawn of a new day more people returned
to be healed by the great Physician. Instead of returning to
heal those who had gathered Jesus said, "Let us go into
the next towns, that I may preach there also, because for
this purpose I have come forth" (Mark 1:38). *
Healing by the hand of the Lord was complete,
instantaneous and welcomed relief to a world not
accustomed to such power. The record does not tell how
many people were healed and John tells us that "even the
world itself could not contain the-books that would be
written" (John 21:25). Jesus could have returned to
Capernaum and spent the next day, week or year healing
people but that was not His work. To heal a person was a
wonderful experience but greater still was the healing of


the heart. Jesus said, "the Son of Man has come to seek and
to save that which was lost" (Luke 19:10).
The church today would do well to learn from Jesus what
the mission statement of God is: seek and save the lost.
The disciples were commissioned to go into all the world
and preach the gospel (Matthew 28:19-20; Mark 16:15-16).
As powerful a testimony for healing could be and as
popular as Jesus could have become as the great healer, He
did not come to earth to solve physical needs but the
spiritual needs of man. After the miracle of feeding more
than five thousand people the crowds wanted to .force Jesus
to be their King. He left them for solitude on the mountain.
He was not there to feed their bellies but feed their spirits
with the manna from above (John 6).
Churches have become organizational businesses thriving
on the commerce of food, entertainment and frivolity while
neglecting the greater need of saving souls. Pulpits are
mere decorations of flattering speeches to ease the itching
ears of hearts filled with more materialism than
spiritualism. The true gospel of Christ and the heralded
message of the New Testament disciples suffering
persecution will not be allowed in many churches because
it is "like a fire ... and like a hammer that breaks the
rock in pieces" (Jeremiah 23:29). Self-satisfied hearts fill
the pews that want the excitement of healing and food.
Jesus wanted to preach!
When was the last time sermons were preached that raised
up the grace, love and mercy of God coupled with the fiery
indignation of sin and judgment of condemnation to those
who rebel against God (Romans 11:22)? Preach Christ!

County Commission seeks

RFP's for legal service


By John'M. Ayers
Gilchrist County received a let-
ter requesting the Board of County
Commission consider proposals for
legal services to Gilchrist County.
Lindsey Lander, an attorney that
has an office providing legal servic-
es to clients in Trenton, submitted
a letter to request the Commission
to review their legal services con-
tract with the present legal counsel.
"I have reviewed the contract of the
County Attorney-and it appears the
contract expires this month unless
it is ratified by the Board to con-
tinue," Lander explained. He re-
quested the board receive requests
for legal services.
John McPherson, attorney for
the Gilchrist County Commission,
explained that the contract for legal


services renews automatically un-
less the Commission chooses to not
renew the existing contract.
The board discussed the services
that are provided by the attorney.
Joe Gilliam, Gilchrist County Clerk
reported to the commission that
staff could draft a list of services
that the attorney presently provides
and present it to the Commission in
the next meeting.
Commissioner D. Ray Harrison,
Jr., made a motion for the Commis-
sion to request resumes for legal
services when the board has the
list of services the legal counsel
is responsible for. Commissioner
Randy Durden agreed with a sec-
ond to the motion. The five-mem-
ber board supported the motion by
a unanimous vote.

the point of having the army of Sa-
maria posted around the city (4:2).
Nehemiah's plan of action in the
face of this intimidation is nothing
short of "carefully wise." First, as
we read last week, he prays. Next,
Nehemiah positioned them by fami-
lies. with swords, spears and bows,
and said, "Don't be afraid of them.
Remember the Lord, who is great and
awesome and fight for your brothers,
your sons and your daughters, your
wives and your homes."(vs. 14) Fi-
nally, they all returned to work.
But "the man who sounded the
trumpet"(vs. 18) stayed with Nehe-
miah. To further relieve the anxiety
of the workers, the trumpet was, the
communication system: at the first
hint of an attack, the trumpet could
be heard throughout the city, and ev-
eryone knew what to do. Until then,
they could focus on the task at hand.
The Old Testament records an ongo-


( ) Palms Medical Group

ing use of the trumpets for times like
these. In fact, during their time in the
wilderness, the Israelites used trum-
pets to coordinate the assembling and
traveling of the tribes and likewise as
a reminder of God's protection over
them.
This calls to mind another interrup-
tion by a trumpet blast. "...but we
will all be changed in a flash, in the
twinkling of an eye, at the last trum-
pet. For the trumpet will sound, the
dead will be raised imperishable, and
we will be changed. Therefore, my
dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing
move you. Always give yourselves
fully to the work of the Lord..." (1
Corinthians 15:51-52,58) The last
call on earth will be a trumpet sound
and time is a wastin'! Stay focus on
the task at hand, but be sure to keep
an ear out for that trumpet.. .because
every heart matters!
Blessings, Angie


Nehemiah # 11
Are we there...yet? If you have
taken a trip of any distance with
young child, chances are pretty good
you have heard this question! While
we usually blame this repetitive ques-
tion on a child's limited concept of
time (hence the next question. "How
much longer?") don't we face similar
struggles as adults? Personally. one
of my biggest frustrations is getting
off schedule, not being "there yet"
when I'thought surely I would be
"there" by now! Perhaps this is so
annoying because I feel such a sense
of victory when I actually get more
accomplished than I had planned for
a given day! Don't you love those
rare moments when you really are
ahead of schedule?
In many cases, especially as we
deal with other people, communica-
tion is key to making progress and
using our time wisely. Ephesians
5:15-16 exhorts,us to "Be very care-
ful, then, how you live-not as unwise
but as wise, making the most of every.
opportunity..." This verse contains
such wisdom on so many levels, but
I want us to focus on how Nehemiah
lived this out and helped the 'Jews re-
building the wall do the same. Last
week, we left Nehemiah at the end of
a very honest prayer time concern-
ing those opposing his work in Jeru-
salem. As- we recall, Sanballat and
Tobiah made a concerted effort to
intimidate the workers in hopes they
would abandon their efforts... even to

The primary mission of this meet-
ing was to provide insight and open
avenues of communication between
our facility and the local community.
Warden Shannon Varnes and his lead-
ership team shared valuable informa-
tion about the faith-based program,
education and vocation classes, the
extended day program, the commu-


nity work squads and the re-entry ef-
forts that have been set in motion. He
also shared with them how important
the community is to the institution.
The goal is to build strong commu-
nity partnerships that will ,not only
make the institution better but will
strengthen the community as well.
This meeting served as a way to pro-
mote community awareness and un-
derstanding of the issues currently
facing the correctional community.
The community leaders were very
supportive and shared with the visi-
tors how Lancaster Correctional In-
stitute has impacted them directly,
namely the community work squads
that provide a direct cost savings to
them. It was inspiring to know that
they have such an impact on their
community.
Lancaster Correctional Institute
would also like to thank those from
the region and central office for
showing their support by attending
and reaching out to the local commu-
nity guests.


First wave of FCAT results are in


Submitted
The State Board of Education de-
cided in December to raise FCAT
cut scores. The cut scores are used
to classify student results into an
achievement level. The achieve-
ment levels are used to determine a
student's success in mastering the in-
structional standards established for
a grade level and/or content area. By
raising the cut scores, the expecta-
tion was created that there would be
a drop in the percentage of students
obtaining a Level 3, 4 or 5 as part of
the FCAT results. In addition, the
State raised the expectations for the
Writing Assessment which is taken
in Grades 4, 8 and 10. Although
students continued to write to an as-
signed prompt, the scoring of the
assessment placed more emphasis
on proper punctuation, spelling and
grammar as well as providing sup-
porting details in the essay.-
According to Superintendent Don
Thomas, "We have seen areas where
we out-performed our expectation.
In addition, we have identified a few
areas which will be our focus in the


upcoming school year." The newly
established cut scores are of particu-
lar concern for students in third grade.
In 2002, the state established a third
grade progression policy requiring
a minimum score in reading on the
Grade 3 FCAT Reading Assessment
in order to be promoted to the next
grade level.
At Bell Elementary School, 52 per-
cent of third grade students scored a
Level 3, 4, or 5 in Reading, while 58
percent of Trenton students scored a
Level 3, 4. or 5. The state average
was 56 percent. In Math 67 percent
of Bell third graders scored a Level 3,
4, or 5, while 66 "percent of Trenton
students scored a 3, 4, or 5. The state
average was 58 percent.
Sherry Lindsey, Bell Elementary
Principal said, "I am very proud of
our mathematics scores. The high
percentage of Levels 3, 4 and 5 are
the result of a lot of hard work and
effort on behalf of our teachers and
students."
Wendy O'Steen, Director of El-
ementary Education added, "I am es-
pecially proud of the third grade stu-

dents throughout the district for their
performance on the FCAT Mathemat-
ics Assessment."
Bell Elementary and Trenton El-
ementary called the parents of all
Grade 3 students who received a
Level 1 on Thursday, May 24.
Mrs. O'Steen shared that a Sum-
mer Reading Camp will be avail-
able this summer at both elementary
schools in an effort to provide addi-
tional reading instruction for Level
1 students which, with demonstrated
reading growth, could result in pro-
motion at the end of the summer. The
individual student reports will be sent
home as soon as they are received in
the district..
The Writing Assessment 'results
were also greatly impacted by the in-
creased rigor. The State Board of Ed-
ucation held an emergency meeting
on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, at 10:30
a.m. to address the State Writing
Assessment scores for Spring 2012.
'The preliminary run of the scores
revealed a significant drop in perfor-
mance when compared with the 2011
Writing Assessment Scores. It was
decided at the State Board Meeting
to lower the writing proficiency tar-
get from a 4 or above, to a 3 or above.
The Writing Assessment scores range
from 1- 6. The state decision to low-
er the proficiency target greatly ben-
efited Gilchrist County Schools.
At Bell Elementary School, 86'per-
cent of fourth grade students scored
at or above a 3 and 77 percent of
fourth grade students at Trenton El-
ementary School scored at or above a
3. The state-average for fourth grade
was 81 percent.
At Bell Middle School, 84 percent
of eighth grade students scored at or
above a 3 on the writing portion of
the FCAT, compared to 91 percent of


eighth grade students at Trenton Mid-
dle School who scored at or above a
3. The state average for eighth grade
was 78 percent.
At Bell High School, 84 percent
of 10th grade students scored at or
above a 3 on the Writing portion of
the FCAT. At Trenton High School,
92 percent of 10th grade students
scored at or above a 3 on the writing
portion of the FCAT. The state aver-
age for 10th grade on the FCAT writ-
ing portion was 84 percent.
"I am extremely proud of the mid-
dle/high school results. We continue
to be at the top in the State," shared
Janet Bradley, Director of Secondary
Education. "The scores indicate the
hard work and dedication by our ad-
ministration, teachers and students."
Superintendent Thomas said, "The
state is raising the rigor and expecting
more from our students and teachers.
We have to keep up with the changes
and ensure we offer our. students the
education which our community ex-
pects and our students deserve."
The Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict is expecting to receive more
scores soon and.will release the in-
dividual score reports as soon as
possible after receiving them in the
district.

time, sew. The most recent projects

much love for the children who at-
tend Kids World Daycare in Trenton.
On May 2, these ladies along with the
sewing volunteer, Ms. Anna Gilliam,
and Dottie Peterson took these little
puppets to some adorable, little chil-
dren at Kids World. The ladies not

but they also enjoyed visiting with
the children as well as watching them-
play with puppets while we visited. Ayers residents Doris Myers, left, and Wanda Malin, along with ti
