Crime continues: Thieves ransack 4-H Clubhouse


Not only are thieves brazen
enough to break into a building on
Main Street in Trenton, they are bold
enough to cook a meal beloreo telling
the building's air conditioner,


According to 4-H agent Chris
De('ubellis. vandals broke into the
4-H Clubhouse somtilnme between
June 6 and June 7. Before stealing the
building's air conditioner the thieves


reportedly fried and ate a number of
egg, the 4-H agent had been using for
poultry judldingl practice on June 6.
Not only did they eat the eggs. some
of which DeCulellik said he knew


to be bad, but they threw eggs shells
all over the inside of the building.
The thieves also ransacked the 4-H
sewing supplies, but thankfully did
not destroy the 16 sewing machines


inside the building.
"I can't believe something like this
could happen right in the middle of
town," DeClbellis said on Tuesday.
"It makes me mad because these


people stole from our kids,"
A 4-H Summer Sewing Camp
planned for next week may have to
be moved because the building is
now without air conditioning.

City manager questions Broadband contract


By Cindy Jo Ayers
The Trenton City Commissioners
Opted to take time to consider a
proposal made by a North Florida
Broadband Authority (NFBA)
officials who came before the board
to ask the city to give in-kind use
of the city water tower as part of
their middle mile communications
network,
The in-kind use is important to
NFBA as this authority is funded
by federal stimulus funds obtained


through the broadband Technology
Opportunities Program in the form of
grant funds.
Gilchrist County Commissioner
Tommy Langford, who is also
chairman of the board for the North
Florida Board bf NFBA, as well as
a few other NFBA representatives
were on hand to ask for the in-kind
use during the June 12 meeting of the
Trenton City Commission.
Langford told the Trenton City
Commissioners that having high


Soil & Water



will appear on



Nov. ballot


.By Carrie A. Mizell
Gilchrist County voters will have
a unique opportunity on November 6
to vote on members of the Gilchrist
County Soil and Water Conservation
Board.
According to Tracy Ridgeway,
assistant supervisor of elections, the
2012 General Election will mark
the first time the Soil and Water
Conservation seats have ever been on
the ballot.
"The board members have never
really had opposition," Ridgeway
said
-This-year. Don Bennink faces
opposition for his District 3 seat from
Richard Esseck. Incumbent Brett
Crawford also faces a challenge from
Jean Wonser for the District 5 spot.
Tommy Jones had no opposition for
his District 1 seat.
In a phone interview on Monday,
Jones said that it used to be difficult
to find people willing to serve on the
Soil and Water Conservation Board,
which comes with a four-year term
and no pay.
The mission of the Gilchrist Soil


and Water Conservation Board
is to help local people conserve
land, water, forests, wildlife and
related natural resources. The local
board partners with federal, state
.and local governments, as well as
private organizations to help carry
out conservation, environmental
and educational programs, while
providing technical assistance and
other services to help land users
protect our natural resources.
Current board members are Adam
Cook-Chairman, Don Bennink,
Tommy Jones, Kelly Philman. and
Brett Crawford-Vice Chairman.
Soil and Water Conservation
District officials hosts annual
speaking contests, land judging
contests, poster contests, and adult
educational workshops to stress the
importance of conservation. Soil and
Water Conservation Board members
work to take a pro-active approach
to conservation by using innovative,
best management practices to meet
the ever-changing needs of agriculture
and homeowners.

speed internet for the citizens of
Trenton will be as important as
getting electricity was back in the
1930s and 1940s.
After a lengthy presentation
stating how important bringing
high speed internet to the town
will be by Langford and two other
representatives, City Manager Taylor
Brown asked # few questions about
the contract he had been given by
NFBA.
Brown explained that the contract


the City was given by NFBA was
for an in-kind donation, or free use
of the city's water tower for NFBA
equipment for 250 years. Brown also
said that under the contract he was
given, NFBA would be allowed to
sublease the use of the water tower
space to a last mile provider who
would then sell the service to the
business owners and residents of the
city of Trenton.
NFBA representatives responded
to Brown by saying that they had


accidentally given him the wrong
contract and the correct contract
would be sent to the city soon, After
more discussion, it was decided that
the city council, along with city
attorney Duke Lang would review
the contract once it is received. The
contract will be discussed at an
upcoming meeting.
Other news from the Trenton City
Council includes the granting of a
special exceptionforTony's Billiards,
which will be located at 806 E. Wade


Street, several doors down from
Subway.
This new business will offer
billiards in a bar/tavern environment.
Tony's Billiards will sell alcohol and
have a dance floor.
After reviewing the special
exception application, city officials
did not feel there would be problem,
Therefore, Adrain Mortez Alvarez
was given a special exception for a
period of 12 months. After a year the
city will review the petition.

Jim Mash, Gilchrist County Veteran Service officer, addressed the crowd attending the Flag Day ceremony on Thursday morning
at the Gilchrist County Memorial Park in Trenton. James Ripley, American Legion Post 91 Chaplain, right, and Jose Cintron, left,
were involved in the program which was sponsored by the Gilchrist County Historical Society and the Veterans Service Office.



Celebrating Flag Day


By John M. Ayers
Alarge groupofGilchrist County
residents were in attendance
Thursday morning to celebrate the
program honoring "Ole Glory",
the American flag.
This program was held to
celebrate an Act of Congress
under President Harry Truman
designating June 14 of each year
as National Flag Day.
Jim Mash, Gilchrist County
Veterans Service officer, welcomed
everyone to the celebration
that began at 11:30 a.m. He
introduced James Ripley, chaplain
of American Legion Post 91 of
Trenton. Chaplain Ripley led the
group in the opening invocation.


Jose Cintron. the District chaplain
of the American Legion in the Tri-
county area led the group in the
Pledge of Allegiance to the American
Flag.
Christie McElroy, a candidate for
Gilchrist County Superintendent of
Schools was in attendance with her
husband Michael McElroy, president
of Ameris Bank in Trenton. Mrs.
McElroy spoke up and asked if she
could sing the national anthem. As
the crowd turned and addressed the
American flag flying at the top of
the flag pole on the courthouse lawn,
Mrs. McElroy's voice was a beautiful
expression of the very proud feelings
we as Americans can be thankful for


each and everyday. She did a great
job as she lifted up the pride of the
American people in a cappella.
Jim Mash gave a brief history of
the American flag and how the fifty
stars represented each of the states
that make up the United States of
America. The thirteen red and white
stripes representing the thirteen
original colonies are to the right and
bottom of the field of blue with the
white stars. The flag is always flown
with the blue field in the upper left
corner. Mash explained that the
American flag should always be
handled with respect. It is folded
properly when it is taken down from
the flag pole before night and the


After 30 years, Ellie Ray'


undergoes a makeover


Submitted '
Ellie Ray's RV Resort and Lounge
on the Santa Fe River, formerly
known as Ellie Ray's River Landing,
is under new ownership. Blue skies,
birds singing and crystal clear spring
water was all it took to convince new
owners Tom and Michelle Sturgeon
of Ellie Ray's charm.
The name Ellie Ray's is sticking as
it has meaning within the community
and was the name of Tom Sturgeon's
grandparents. With a little elbow


grease, improvements to the
existing park will be the addition of
a clubhouse and fitness center, full-
time food service and new lounge
hours, a swimming pool facility,
updated picnic pavilions, increasing
the number of RV and camping sites
and paved roads throughout the park.
The four-phase development plan
which was approved by the Gilchrist
County Commissioners Office on
May 31 will begin with paving,
landscaping and a new boat ramp


which will include the distilling and
restoration of the Trail Springs that
feeds into the Santa Fe River.
Sturgeon is confident the
improvements and future
modifications planned will contribute
to the local community. "We aren't
looking to build a bigger RV park but
instead a civic area that enriches the
culture and environment of Gilchrist
County," says Sturgeon.

flown at half staff for 30 days
to signify a tragedy or death
has occurred in the United
States of America. When the
flag becomes old and torn,
it is then retired. American

buried, but never thrown in the
trash.

COOKING AND CARRYING' O'N


Oh those sweet, sweet, Georgia
peaches.
'Tis a fine time to pick up a peck
of peaches. Georgia growers are now
shipping peaches down here and they
are easy to find and delicious right
now.
Pray tell, is there any better food'
than homemade peach ice cream?
Probably not if you are a serious
peach lover like me. But, I have to
tell you this week's recipe is a close
second.
In fact this recipe is so long that
I have room for the cooking' but not
enough for the usual carrying' on.
This trifle will be better if you make
it about six hours before serving
it. Also I make the pound cake and
custard the day before.

Peach Praline Trifle

Angel Pound Cake, use half, recipe
follows
3 cups fresh peaches, peeled and
sliced
Vanilla custard, recipe follows
1 cup peach preserves
2 cups whipping cream
1/2 cup confectioners sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 trifle dish or clear glass mixing
bowl

Slice pound cake into ; inch slices;
spread peach preserves on one side
of each slice of cake. Then line the
bottom of trifle dish with one layer of
slices. Next arrange a layer of peaches
(one cup) over the cake slices. Then
add a layer of vanilla custard on top
of peaches; repeat two more times to
make three layers of each item.
Whip the whipping cream until
light and fluffy, then add confectioners
sugar and vanilla. Spread a thick layer
of whipping cream on top. Cover
with clear wrap and chill until ready
to serve.

whipping cream in thick-bottomed
sauce pan. Heat over medium-low
heat until warm.
Combine eggs and sugarin a mixing
bowl and beat well with whisk. Pour
one fourth of the milk mixture into


the eggs and whisk. Then add all
the egg mixture to the pot with milk
mixture. Whisk while adding the
egg mixture. Cook over medium-
low heat for 10 to 15 minutes. Stir
often so the custard does not stick to
bottom of the pot. Cook custard until
it thickens enough to cover the back
of a spoon or until it almost begins
to boil. Remove from heat then add
vanilla; stir well and cool until room
temperature. Cover with plastic wrap
and chill over night.

Angel Pound Cake

above recipe.)
1 cup butter, softened

5 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
4 teaspoon salt
1 cup whole milk
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Cream butter, shortening, and
sugar using a mixer. Beat at medium
speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs
one at a time, beating well after each
addition.
Sift flour then measure. Combine
flour, baking powder and salt; add
to creamed mixture alternately with
milk, beginning and ending with flour
mixture. Stir in extracts and pour into
a 10 inch greased and floured tube
pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for I hour and
15 minutes. Let cool in pan for 15

By Carrie A. Mizell
Ayers Health & Rehab isn't the
only Ayers turning 30 this week. I,
too, will celebrate my 30th birthday
on Sunday. It's hard to believe that
I'm going to be 30!
1 still feel like 1 should be cruising
the streets of Trenton in my mom's
old smurf blue Chevy Lumina that
both J and I HAD to drive, talking on
my bag phone. That's right, I had a
bag phone way back when, and boy
did that make me cool. Ha! (I'm re-
ally telling my age here.)
As I sat at Trenton and Bell's grad-
uations recently, I couldn't help but
reflect on my own walk across the
football field back in 2000 as Pomp
and Circumstance played. In those
few minutes, I was 17 again. That is
until I asked Trenton graduate Lee
Deen a question and he answered
with "Yes, ma'am."
Glory, I'm a ma'am now!
As much as I love good manners
and strive to teach them to Allie
Claire, it's hard to hear "yes, ma'am"
from an 18-year-old. Rest assured,
Riley and Laura, you are raising a
good boy witl great manners.
Looking back, there are many
things I would tell my 18-year-old
self:
Buy stock in Apple. There's a
little thing called an iPad coming.
Anti-aging moisturizer. Buy it
now and use it often. Your 30-year-
old self will thank you!
Not everyone is going to do what
you think they should do, but that
doesn't mean they're wrong. Adopt
this motto: To each his own.
Wear a two-piece bathing suit
now! The jiggle you are imagining
around your waistline will only get
jigglier after childbirth!
Pray more. God will literally
be your saving grace in the years to
come.

Not With Your Sword Nor With Your Bow
(Kent Heaton)


The conquest of Canaan in the days of Joshua was a
daunting task at best made possible only by the grace of
God. After the death of Moses it was given to Joshua to
lead the people into the promised land and receive the
blessings of a covenant made to Abraham centuries before
(Genesis 12). The son of Nun completed the task laid
before him by the Lord and in his final days Joshua
recounted the great victories of God's people against the
enemies of the land. Joshua 24 is the farewell address of
this great leader of Israel. Throughout the speech, Joshua
reminded the people time and again that God had
delivered them by His hand and not their own.
God brought Abraham from the other side of the flood
and to his children the Lord gave them children and land.
"I sent Moses" the Lord tells the people and by the hand
of the Lord the Egyptians were destroyed. The deliverance
of Israel was also by the power of the Almighty. In the
land of Canaan the peoples that were settled there were
conquered by the power of God. In Joshua 24:21 Jehovah
says, "And I sent the hornet before you, which drove them
out before you, the two kings of the Amorites: it was not
by your sword or by your bow. I gave you a land on which
you had not labored and cities that you had not built, and
you dwell in them. You eat the fruit of vinerards and
olive orchards that you did not plant" (Joshua 24:12-13).
Joshua wanted the people to understand that all of their
victories and all of the blessings they enjoyed came lfromi
once source: the Almighty Jehovah God. 'he land of
Canaan was given to them fully prepared. The battles were
won by the hand of God. There was no boasting on the
part of the people to suggest they had brought about so


great a victory. The only reason they possessed the land
was because of the grace of God. Acknowledging that
truth, Joshua appeals for the people'to serve the Lord and
Him only. We can do no less.
What is it that we have done that is without the grace of
God? Paul reminded the Athenians, "For in Him we live
and move and have our being ... we are the offspring of
God" (Acts 17:28-29). We live and move because of God
not in spite of. God holds our breath in His band (Job
12:9-10). Nations rise and fall because of the Lord (Daniel
5:23-31). Our salvation is by the grace of God (Ephesians
2:4-10). There was no solution to sin apart from the love of
God (John 3:14-17). We can do nothing apart from our
Creator.
The psalmist declares the Lord "does not delight in the
strength of the horse, He takes no pleasure in the legs of
a man. The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him,
in those who hope in His mercy" (Psalms 147:10-11).
Joshua wanted the people to know that victory does not
come by sword or bow but by the hand of the Lord. We
must engage our hearts to accept the grace of God as His
power working in our lives and not our own. The ILord
alone is God and only by His grace. love, mercy and power
are we able to gain the victory.
What is it that we can claim as our own? Solomon said
there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9). Can
we boast of knowledge or power more than Jehov\ alh The
swords and bows of man are dust compared lo tile majesty
of our Creator (Isaiah 40). Yet in Christ God has given Htis
grace to save us from sin. He did.

Letter


to the


Editor

Kudos to GCSD
Dear Editor,
It is important for me to publicly
and silicerely thank Sheriff's Deputy
Michelle Jones and Investigator
Jenkins of the Gilchrist County
Sheriff's Department for their
expertise, professionalism, and
courtesy in connection with a
burglary investigation following theft
of merchandise from my Trenton
home. Upon my return home
following a stay in south Florida, I
discovered that forcible entry had
been made and items worth several
thousand dollars had been stolen. The
investigating officer, Deputy Jones,
,promptly met with me, traveled to
'my residence and spent considerable
time reconstructing the probable
details of the break-in. To assist her,
,she called upon Investigator Jenkins
'who also traveled to my residence to
complete their job of fingerprinting
and gathering useful information.
Based upon their intimate knowledge
of Gilchrist County and its "cast
of characters," I was subsequently
notified in less than a week that the
suspected/accused perpetrators had
been arrested and were in jail. In
addition, Investigator Jenkins had
recovered a large screen TV that
had been mounted to my bedroom
wall which was returned to me. I am
extremely grateful for these public
servants who spent considerable time
and resources to arrest those thought
responsible. Deputy Jones and
Investigator Jenkins are true credits
to our community.

County to


upgrade

fire plan

By John M. Ayers
i The Gilchrist County Commission
was told by Charlie Perez, president
of the Gilchrist County Tea .Party
that the hiring of a fire chief is very
important to Gilchrist County and
it should become a priority for the
commission.
Commission Chairman Tommy
Langford placed the former Gilchrist
County Fire Chief on the Cominis-
sion's Monday, June 18 agenda to al-
low him to address the commission
with this important matter.
Perez gave a presentation to the
Commission explaining that they
should make the hiring of a fire chief
in Gilchrist County a high priority.
"Begin the process of hiring a fire
chief for Gilchrist County TODAY.
Adopt and stick with a structured
format to achieve the best possible
outcome. Set standards that are skill
related. Continue the looking process
until you find what you need and use
outsiders to help with the selection of
the fire chief," Perez said.
He also gave a detailed analysis of
the steering committees that should
be selected to make recommenda-
tions to the county administrator so
he can hire the right individual for
the job.
"Gilchrist County Fire Service
is now at the point that volunteer
firefighters are not responding to
emergency calls, especially in the
Waccasassa-Station 4 area," Perez
explained. "We are looking for indi-
viduals with the right skills and ex-
perience to do a good job in Gilchrist
:County."
"Do we currently have a policy in
'place to hire a fire chief for Gilchrist
County?" asked Commissioner D.
'Ray Harrison.
John McPherson, Gilchrist County
attorney, explained 'that Gilchrist
*County has a personnel policy that is
. used in the hiring of a position of Fire
'Chief.
"We need to update the Gilchrist
County Fire Service 3, 5, and 10
year plan," explained Commissioner
:Randy Durden. "The board needs to
update this plan and decide where
the county wants to go in the future
'before hiring a fire chief for Gilchrist
County," he added.
Bobby Crosby, Gilchrist County


Administrator, told the board that
he is currently working with Linda
Walker, the interim fire chief on up-
dating the fire service plan.
"We currently have a captain in fire
service that is working with staff to
identify and improve fire service in
the county," Crosby said.
Randy Durden reported to the
Commission that the board needs to
look at hiring a fire chief during an
upcoming budget workshop to make
sure that sufficient funding is avail-
able for the upgrade of the fire ser-
vice plan.
The commission asked if staff
would bring an updated plan to the
commission in the Monday, July 2
meeting.

Public demo of

emergency
communications

is June 23-24
Submitted
Despite the internet, cell phones,
email and modem communications,
every year whole regions find them-
selves in the dark. Tornadoes, fires,
storms, ice and even the occasional
cutting of fiber optic cables leave
people without the means to commu-
nicate. In these cases, the one consis-
tent service that has never failed has
been amateur radio. These radio op-
erators, often called "hams" provide
backup communications for every-
thing from the American Red Cross to
FEMA and even for the International
Space Station. Gilchrist, Levy and Di-
xie "hams" will join with thousand of
other amateur radio operators show-
ing their emergency capabilities this
weekend. On the weekend of June
23-24, the public will have a chance
to meet and talk with Gilchrist, Levy,
and Dixie County ham radio opera-
tors and see for themselves what the
Amateur Radio Service is about as
hams across the USA will be hold-
ing public demonstrations of emer-
gency communications abilities. This
annual event, called "Field Day" is
the climax of the week long "Ama-
teur Radio Week" sponsored by the
ARRL, the national association for
amateur radio. Using only emer-
gency power supplies, ham operators
will construct emergency stations
in parks, shopping malls, schools
and backyards around the country.
Their slogan, "When All Else Fails,
Ham Radio Works" is more than just
words to the hams as they prove they
can send messages in many forms
without the use of phone systems, in-
ternet or any other infrastructure that
can be compromised in a crisis. Set
up in Gilchrist County EOC and in
back of the EOC, the Dixie Amateur
Radio Klub (DARK) will be demon-
strating amateur radio at the Gilchrist
EOC on June 23 and June 24, 2012.
The public is invited to come and
see ham radio's new capabilities and
learn how to get their owh FCC ra-
dio license before the next disaster
strikes. Amateur radio is growing in
the US. There are now over 700,000
amateur radio license-holders in the
US and more than 2.5 million around
the world. Through the AARL's Am-
ateur Radio Emergency Services pro-
gram, ham volunteers provide both
emergency communication for thou-
sand of state and local emergency re-
sponse agencies and non-emergency
community services, all for free. To
learn more about amateur radio, go to
www.emergency-radio.org. The pub-
lic is most cordially invited to come,
meet and talk with the hams.

Clemons relating her personality and
,character to that mentioned in Psalm
34 from the Bible. Connie Corbin,

attend, retired in December from Bell
Elementary where she spent over 20
years teaching 5th grade. Principal

ing the students of Gilchrist County
to school for 35 years. Director of

cation to the students and how she
began driving a bus when buses had
no air conditioning. Elsie Deal, who
was unable to attend, retires as a food
service worker from Bell Elementary
with 11 years of service in the dis-
trict. Director of Food Service, Danna
Tucker, spoke of Deal's willingness
to always help out, and the commit-
ment to herjob and the students. Sally
Hooker retires from Bell Elementary
as a teacher's aide with 11 years in
the district. Principal Sherry Lindsey
spoke about Hooker's way with the
students, and her dedication. Betty
Shepherd, who was unable to attend,
retired in February as food service
manager at Bell Elementary with 32

SRWMD agreement with Suwannee Schools

will allow FFA to have outdoor classroom


Submitted
On June 12, the Suwannee River
Water Management District Gov-
erning Board approved a land use
agreement with Suwannee County
School Board to provide opportuni-
ties for school-related activities on
the District's Branford Bend Tract.
The agreement will allow Branford
High School's Future Farmers of
America (FFA) Chapter to use 175
acres of the tract for FFA activities.
Stacey Young, Branford High's
FFA advisor, said the agreement
will provide students the opportuni-
ty to take what they are learning in


the classroom and apply it in a real-
life setting. .
"The students will get hands-on
experience at implementing forestry
and agricultural best management
practices and the ability to work with
professionals in the agricultural in-'
dustry," she said. "We are excited the
District is providing us this opportu-
nity and we are truly grateful."
District Director of Mission Sup-
port Melanie Roberts said the project
made sense given the tract's proxim-
ity to the school and given its history
of agriculture and forestry uses.
The parcel includes areas intended


for reforestation by the District.
Some of the property will be plant-
ed in trees and managed for forest
products by the FFA Chapter. The
Chapter also plans to manage part
of the property for hay production
as part of their agricultural manage-
ment curriculum. Other uses on the
property are also planned to integrate
language arts, science, culinary and
natural resource management stud-
ies with agriculture and forestry.
The public will not be excluded
from recreational activities current-
ly allowed on the tract.


BUDDY WILL HELP PROVIDE:
Leadership A Commissioner must be willing to step out and help find solutions to
the challenges our County faces. They must be able to help fashion a vision of what
Gilchrist will look like in 10 or 20 years. We must avoid short-term, stop-gap methods
and focus on the long-range picture.
SEconomic Development Our local economy is in trouble. A large percentage of
our people travel to work in surrounding counties, while our local unemployment rate
remains high. Our County Government must form a partnership with the Cities of Bell,
Fanning Springs, and Trenton to market the uniqueness of our communities, and our
beautiful county and its rivers and springs. We must work closely with State agencies
that can partner us with businesses that want to locate in small communities. Why not
more motels? Why not more agri-tourism? Why not more campgrounds? 'Why not a
sports complex? Any of these would provide jobs and a stream of income for local busi-
nesses. Dreaming is essential.
Buddy has the training, experience, and desire to serve Gilchrist County. Where others
see a problem, he see's an opportunity. He is an independent thinker and has no obli-'
gation to anyone except the people of Gilchrist County. Please let Buddy work for
you....... Vote Buddy Vickers on August 14th.

Department of Juvenile

Justice Book brive
Submitted
'he Department of Juvenile Justice (DJJ) will hold a book Drive on Satur-
day, June 23, at their office located at 204 N. Main Street in Trenton, (directly
across from the Gilchrist County Journal) from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Books
need to be age appropriate for small children and teenagers. These will be
used to teach/keep children reading throughout summer and for other DJJ
projects,
The Department has studied and recognized, children who act out or are
placed, can be due to some type of trauma in their lives. Staff members are
addressing this issue and have found that even the smallest efforts and spe-
cialized trauma counseling can help these youth.
As a trauma care effort, Laura Lampros, DJJ Unit Secretary, took orders
and donations last month to buy tote bags for youth who are placed in foster
care and in programs. When youth are picked up and placed, they usually
bring their clothes in plastic grocery bags or garbage bags. It's humiliating
and traumatizing enough to be placed, but to show up with your clothes in
plastic bags is even more traumatizing. Now these kids will have something
to carry their clothes in and they will be theirs to keep! This effort lessens
the stress and trauma of the child. Also donated and purchased were small
tote bags to put coloring books, crayons, pencils/pencil bags, note pads and
small hand games in. These will be used to keep children entertained while
they wait for placement or medical appointments. We have some of the items
above, but ended up with more tote bags than anticipated. Anyone wishing to
donate any of the items above for the small tote bags, or would like to make
a donation to purchase the items, can come by the DJJ office, Monday thru
Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
A very special thank you goes out to all those who gave generous donations
to purchase the tote bags. You have no idea what this will mean to a child.
We look forward to seeing you on June 23!

Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County, I
am running for the office of Clerk of
Circuit Court. It is my belief that this
position should be one of total
neutrality. So neutral in fact, that I am
using my own money to fund this
campaign. I am not rich on a teacher's
salary by any stretch of the
imagination, but I do know the value
of a dollar and how to budget and
stretch it to make it go as far as
possible.


It is my opinion that if I use only my money, then I am living my belief that everyone is
equal and should be treated equally. When you are in a position that is supposed to be
well centered, there is no room to lean in any direction.
Raising four children I learned very quickly that you do not make promises you can't
keep. If I am elected this is what you will get from me: Professionalism, honesty and
dedication. I will be a good steward of the tax payers' funds. My ability to work well with
others, being open and fair with everyone and creating a pleasant work place environment
where employees are happy, will equate to better customer service.
I know that I am qualified to do the job and my years of experience working with the
public will make a difference in this position.

Qualifications
/ AA Santa Fe Community College
/ Associates of Science in Business- Santa Fe Community College
/ Bachelors of Education- University of Florida
/ I have 34 years working successfully with the public.
/ Educator in the Gilchrist County School System for 27 years.

Personal
Married to my high school sweet heart, Mitchell for 32 years.
4 grown children ages 19-28 living in Gilchrist County.
Very active in my community as a volunteer in many organizations and projects.
Nearly life time resident of Gilchrist County.45+ consecutive years.
Attended Trenton Elementary and graduated from Trenton High School.

I humbly ask for your support and vote during the August 14th Primary and the Novem-
ber 6th General Election.

Thank you for your consideration.

Submitted
Gilchrist County's Deputy Scotty
Douglas and his K-9 Sinbad visited
Kid's World on Wednesday, Jine
13. Sinbad is a Dutch Sheppard


and a-narcotics dog. Sinbad is from
Germany and was donated to the
Sheriff's Department by Homeland
Security eight months ago. He and
Deputy Douglas demonstrated how


Sinbad works when he is looking for
drugs. Wyatt Langford, an attendee
of Kid's World, had two very good
questions for Deputy Douglas. First
he asked "Does Sinbad track medicine
drugs?" The answer is "that he's
not trained to find them but he does
because they have a lot of the same
ingredients as illegal drugs." The
second question was "Do you take
him on boats on the river?" Deputy
Douglas answered that "Sinbad is
being trained for that and very soon
he and Sinbad will be on the river and
at the sand bar."

Nehemiah #12
1 read an amazing story recently
about Patrick Greene, a cab driver
from Texas, who was so offended by
a Nativity scene placed on a near-
by county courthouse lawn that he
promptly filed a lawsuit seeking its
removal. Meanwhile, Greene was
'diagnosed with, a detached retina, a
condition that could lead to blindness
unless corrected by surgery. With
no medical insurance, and facing the
loss of a job he would not be able to
keep without sight, Greene decided
that he would have to concentrate on
his personal dilemma and decided
to drop the lawsuit.. When a nearby
church was notified of the reason the
lawsuit was being dropped, how do
you think they responded? Surely
the church praised the Lord for pun-
ishing the rrnan who would be against
celebrating the birth of Christ!
Not exactly.. .this church had com-
passion on Greene, and instead of
standing against him, they actually
offered to pay for the eye surgery
he would need. To his surprise, this
group of Christians showed the love
of Christ to him in a way he had never
experienced. As a result, Greene was
publicly thankful and is now making
plans to move with his wife to this
community. Surely he will never
look at a Nativity scene the same! 1
If we aren't careful we can get so
busy standing against what is wrong
in our culture that we forget to stand
with those who need to know Christ,
If our mindset is wrong, we can over-
look opportunities to share His love,
pronouncing judgment instead of
granting mercy. Ironically, Nehemi-
ah taught a very similar lesson nearly
2500 years ago. As the Jews worked


to rebuild the wall, they struggled to
feed their families, It seems many
were suffering at the hands of some
of their rich countrymen, who were
happy to lend money, in order to
charge large amounts of interest that
could never be repaid. As a result,'
.many workers were losing not only
their land, but family members were
often sold as slaves to pay back the
debt. Nehemiah confronted these no-
bles and officials: "What you are do-
ing is not right. Shouldn't you walk
in the fear of our God to avoid the
reproach of our Gentile enemies?"
(Nehemiah 5:9)
God never intends for people to
profit from others' misfortunes. Ne-
hemiah helped them understand this
kind of thinking was not only detri-
'mental to rebuilding their communi-
ty; it was also a behavior God cannot
bless. I applaud those Texas believers
who ended up adding a friend to their
community! May we have also take
every opportunity to live out what
those Nativity scenes really repre-
sent. Doesn't it make sense for God
to use our compassion for others to
draw a watching world to Himself?
After all, every heart matters!
Blessings, Angle

LOG CABIN QUILTlERS

Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, June 14, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. It was a work day, rearranging the tables, sorting notions and
showing off new aprons. We got a lot done and enjoyed being able to visit
with each other. Ann and Joyce brought in new aprons. We made pat-
terns of some of the aprons and loved the rick rack that Joyce has put on her
apron.
Friday, the young men were out and they worked hard. We had gotten in
two large rolls of batting, probably 6-7 foot long and 3-4 foot in diameter,
They had to move things around until the space between the kitchen and sew-
ing room had a wide path. The batting was then cut into 9 foot lengths and
each section was folded and rolled for storage and later use. The 9 foot by 6-
7 foot section will make a king size quilt. Some of the young men were kept

It's time to give all of you a head's
up about the 3rd Great Suwannee
River Cleanup.
This year we started adding in the
tributaries, and we started with the
Santa Fe River, Make no mistake;
we still want people to work on the
Suwapnee just like the last two years.
The only difference is that those in-
terested can choose to work on the
Santa Fe. We have already done Lake
Santa Fe, the headwaters, but the rest
is open. In coming years, other tribu-
taries will be added in.
Registration will be online just
as in the past. Here is the link you
need to register and to learn more


about this year's cleanup. hup://ti-
nyurl.com/6q2f9oo, You can regis-
ter anytime now, but take a look pt
the spreadsheet to see what is open.
You'll find the link to the spreadsheet
in the form above, as well as one for
a map showing what sections have
been taken.
Please call me if you have ques-
tions and would like to chat. I can
be reached at 352-264-6827 or you
can contact me by e-mail at aar@cur-
rentproblems,org. We're looking fot-
ward to another great year with this
cleanup. We are.also hoping you will
be interested in joining in, whether
you have helped in the past, or you
are a newcomer to the cleanup.


Mosquitoes usher in summer with
a bite


Submitted
The Florida Department of Health
(DOH) reminds Floridians and visi-
tors to take simple preventive mea-
sures to protect against contracting
mosquito-borne illnesses. Floridians
can take simple steps to combat mos-
quitoes and prevent mosquito-borne
illness.
"Mosquito populations are likely to
increase after recent rains," said State
Public Health Veterinarian Dr. Carina
Blackmore. "It's important that Flo-
ridians and visitors are informed that
the risk of mosquito-borne disease is
minimized by implementing precau-
tions."
DOH encourages three basic pre-
cautions to help limit mosquito bites
and exposure to mosquito-borne ill-
ness:
DRAIN any standing water to


stop mosquitoes from multiplying.
COVER skin with clothing or
repellent.
COVER doors and window
with screens to keep mosquitoes out
of your residence.
If outdoors at dusk or dawn, bp
cautious as mosquitoes are most ac-
tive during these times.
Symptoms of mosquito-borne ill
nesses may include headache, feve4
fatigue, dizziness, weakness and con,
fusion. It can take two to 14 days ti
become sick after being bitten by ah
infected mosquito. Anyone suspect
ing they are sick should contact their
physician immediately.
For more information on mosqu4-
to-borne illnesses, visit DOH's Envt

Beef 'O'Brady's franchise owner
Mark Swain wants to open, but
delays keep forcing him to move his
Grand Opening date. These delays
come in the dark of night, when no
one is looking.
Twice now thieves have broken
in to steal the tools his contractors
need to do their job. They also took
the building supplies purchased to
make the business complete. And
most recently, they stole the newly
installed flat screen TVs meant for
the patrons to watch games while
enjoying the family atmosphere.
The Levy County Sheriff's Office
is aggressively investigating these
crimes. WVe are asking our public,
the people we protect, for some help.
Investigators need tips to identify
the criminals, recover the property
and help this business open. Anyone
with information that could lead to
the arrest are urged to contact Crime
Stoppers at 1-877-349-8477. You
could be eligible for a reward.

Gilchrist Sheriff's
Volunteers news
By Rosemary McDaniel, PIO
During the month' of May 2012,
Citizens Patrol cars were driven 1453
miles and volunteers 'contributed
over 177 hours of their time while
patrolling city and county roads,
various county springs and boat
ramps, and assisting at the Relay for
Life, a funeral, and an automobile
acciderit: CARE (Check and Respond
Everyday) volunteers made 68 calls
and 47 visits to residents enrolled in
the program.
Although it is only June, Sheriff's
Volunteers are already planning for
the annual Thanksgiving food drive.
We will need not only donations of
food, but also monetary contributions
that will enable us to purchase the
turkeys and .other necessary food
items.
Because of these difficult economic
times, greater numbers of Gilchrist
County families will be eligible to
receive a Thanksgiving basket, but


some may be denied due to a lack of
funding.
In the coming months we will
reach out to the community for help,
as we have in past years, and we hope
the generosity of our fine residents
will again be forthcoming to allow
us to succeed in distributing over 300
turkeys with all of the fixings to our
most needy residents.
Thank you in advance for your
contributions.
The next meeting will be held on
July 3 at 6 p.m. in the Sheriff's Office
conference room.
All meetings are open to the public
and we welcome prospective new
members in particular.

Gainesville man injured by

alligator
By Karen Parker, FWC
A Gainesville man was bitten by an alligator Monday, June 11, as he was
swimming. James Albert Wimmer, age 51, was in a small creek off SE 16th
Avenue in Gainesville at 4:30 p.m., when a 9-foot-7-inch alligator bit his right
shoulder, left forearm and his back, according to Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) officers.
Two men from a nearby camp, Richard Humphrey and J.C. Goodwin, heard
Wimmer calling for help and went to assist. Wimmer was able to escape from
the alligator with Goodwin's aid. Both men returned to shore. Humphrey
called for emergency services. Alachua EMS transported Wimmer to Shands
Hospital in Gainesville for treatment
The State Nuisance Alligator Program (SNAP) issued a permit for a local
alligator trapper to remove the animal. The trapper was able to catch and
dispatch the alligator by 8 p.m. The animal was taken to the Gainesville
Wildlife laboratory. The FWC is investigating the incident

4-H members get a Taste of Florida


Submitted
Last week local 4-H youth learned
about Florida's history, culture, and
agriculture through food and fun at
the Taste of Florida Day Camp. This
was the fourth annual day camp in
the award-winning "Farm to Family"
series sponsored by the Gilchrist
and Suwannee County Cooperative
Extension Services. The local youth,
who ranged in age from 7 to 16,
participated in the three-day event
that took them from Cedar Key to
St. Augustine in search of the real
Florida.
On Monday, June 11, the young
people visited the University of Flor-
ida's clam research facility in Cedar
Key to learn about the history of
clam farming. Jennifer L. Saranzak,
an educator with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission
Division of Marine Fisheries Man-
agement Outreach and Education
Subsection taught the young people
how to identify fish species using
scientific techniques and tools like a
microscope. The 4-H'ers then toured
Shell Mound and learned about the
history of the region's first residents
as well as a quick lesson on archae-
ology. After lunch on the beach, the
young people toured Southern Cross,
a local clam operation to learn how
clams are bred, raised, harvested, and
processed. The day ended with a trip
to the Cedar Key museum to learn


about the local history, including the
region's importance to the pencil in-
dustry.
Day two kicked off on Tuesday,
June 12, with a trip to the nation's
oldest city, St. Augustine. The kids
took a historical trolley tour of the
old city, ate real Spanish food at the
Spanish Bakery, toured the Castillo
de San Marcos which is the oldest
stone fort in America, and learned
about Timucuan Indian and Spanish
Colonial history and culture at the
Old Florida Museum.
The final day of the camp on
Wednesday, June 13, was an
opportunity for the young people
to learn about their Florida Cracker
heritage. Mr. Woodrow Smith took
the kids in the woods and taught them
how to properly harvest and clean a
swamp cabbage and prepare it for
cooking. The young people tried
raw swamp cabbage on the spot and
enjoyed learning about the history
of Cracker foods. The Gilchrist Soil
and Water Conservation District
sponsored a meal of fried mullet,
swamp cabbage, hushpuppies, cheese
grits, tomato salad, and homemade
ice cream with help from volunteers
Woodrow Smith and Yolanda Smith
and District Secretary Darlene Smith
and Conservation Technician John
Stubblefield as a partnership effort.
Special thanks to Mr. Woodrow


Everyone got to sample raw swamp cabbage.

Submitted
On Friday. July 6, a private, local

for all of the camping visitors to
enjoy! Bring lawn chairs! Randy is
promising an even better show this
year! If you were here last year, you
know how great it was then, so don't
miss it!
Weather permitting; if there is a
bum ban in effect. there will not be
fireworks. Please check back for
updates closer to the event; currently
there is not a bur ban in effect. Cross
your fingers for more rain.
As this is for campers, you must

number of people allowed per site.

Two Levy County


banks plan to merge


Submitted
Drummond Banking Company,
parent company of Drummond
Community Bank, and Williston
Holding Company, parent company
of Perkins State Bank, jointly
announced the signing of a definitive
merger agreement.
The merger, expected to be
completed during the first quarter
of 2013, is subject to customary
conditions, including the approval of
the Williston shareholders and bank
regulators. Shareholders of Williston
will elect to receive Drummond
common stock or cash in exchange
for their shares, subject to election
and proration procedures. Under
terms of the definitive agreement,
the transaction is presently valued at
$14.6 million, subject to adjustment.
A portion of the purchase price may
be payable after the transaction is
completed based on the disposition
of certain assets of Williston and
Perkins State Bank.
This combination will create a
larger, well-capitalized community
bank with a growing market presence
in five counties. The combined bank
will have assets approaching $400
million, deposits of more than $310
million, and nearly $200 million
in loans, with capital and reserves
totaling more than $45 million. The
merger of Drummond Community
Bank and Perkins State Bank, the
only two locally-owned banks
remaining in Levy County, will bring
together thousands of depositors and
borrowers who prefer community
banking. Luther Drummond will
remain as President and CEO while
Frank Etheridge will be serving as
Area President of the combined
Drummond Community Bank.
Both bankers agree this partnership
provides a solid foundation to ensure
that the advantages of personalized
community banking in the hands
of capable local owners, remain
available to all residents of the five-
county region currently served by
the banks well into the foreseeable
future.
Drummond Community Bank
ranks among the best capitalized
banks in Florida. Throughout the
past 22 years, the bank has generated
its strong capital position with above
average returns. Perkins State Bank,
one of the oldest banks in Florida,
founded in 1913, is approaching
its 100th anniversary of providing
coinmunity banking services to Levy
and Alachua counties.
"Drummond Community Bank has
many things in common with Perkins
State Bank," remarked Luther Drum-
mond. "We share the same values
such as our commitment to superior
customer service and our commit-
ment to the community. We both are
dedicated to providing our customers
world-class financial management
in a community-bank atmosphere."
Drummond added, "We are going to
build our combined banks into one
of the premier community banks in
Florida."
Frank Etheridge, President of Per-
kins State Bank, commented, "The


merger of these two sound commu-
nity banks will create an enduring
banking alliance enabling us to con-
tinue our long standing safe-banking
traditions in Williston, Chiefland and
in all of the important communities
we serve." Mr. Etheridge continued,
"We are committed to maintaining
our strong customer service brought
to you by the people you know."
