Tropical Storm Debby soaks



Gilchrist ,Cun t


By CarrieA. Mizell
Disorganized, but dangerous, is
how Gilchrist County Emergency
Management Director David Peaton
described Tropical Storm Debby on
Monday afternoon.
Though the center of the tropical
storm was not expected to make
landfall until 2 p.m. on Wednesday
near Cedar Key, its impacts were
widespread throughout the state. In
Gilchrist County, trees were down
throughout the county causing several
power outages.
According toPeaton. the Suwannee
River Kidney Center in Trenton lost
power for several hours on Monday
morning after a tree limb fell on an
electrical line near the facility. Prior
to that, an unoccupied vehicle was
damaged when a tree fell on it Sunday
evening in the City of Trenton.
At press time, Peaton said county
officials were closely monitoring
Debby.
"Our major concern is rainfall
and minor river flooding along the
Santa Fe River, near the State Road
47 bridge at Fort White and in Three
Rivers Estates," Peaton said.
Residents living on the Gilchrist
County side of the Santa Fe River
received a CODE RED phone call
issued by the county, warning of
possible flooding due to heavy
rainfall.
"The worst part of the rain hasn't
come yet," Peaton said just before
lunchtime on Tuesday.
Peaton explained that the county's
emergency shelter at Bell High
School has been placed on standby
should flood waters from the Santa
Fe River force residents living along
the river to evacuate their homes.

Jackie Adams named new

as officer in charge, Jackie Adams

Jackie Adams
received word last week that she had
been appointed postmaster of the Bell
Post Office.
A High Springs resident, Adams
said she is looking forward to serving
the community of Bell, not to mention
her easy commute to and from work
each day.


Twenty-three years ago, Adams
began working for the United States
Postal Sen ice (USPS). Her son is
also employed by USPS, as a rural
carrier working out of Fort White.
Adams explained that the Bell Post
Office has been run very well in the
past, under the leadership of Greg
Maracic who served as postmaster
from January 2007 up until his
retirement in the fall of 2011.
"The clerks and carriers at Bell
do an excellent job," Adams said,
referring to the post office's nine
employees.
The Bell Post Office services a
total of 2500 boxes and carriers run
four routes each day.
Open Monday-Friday from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 9
a.m.-lf:30 a.m., the Bell Post Office
has maintained regular hours when
other post offices throughout the
country have had to cut back. Due
to the volume of customers, Adams
said she has heard of no plans to
change the Bell Post Office's hours
of operation.


Gary Rexroat, a physician's assistant with the Trenton Medical
Center in 1982 and a member of the North Central Florida Health
Planning Council, is credited as being responsible for getting the
nursing home built in Trenton. Rexroat told those attending the
30th Anniversary on Thursday that this facility fwas a dream
come true for him and several members of the community that
met daily at Langford's Cafe in downtown Trenton.


Ayers Health &


Rehab celebrates


30th anniversary


By Carrie A. Mizell
"It's good to be back home," Mrs.
Elsie Grant said on Monday, March
8, 1982, when her wheelchair
was pushed through the doors of
Medic-Ayers Nursing Center on
opening day.
Frank Grant's mother, Mrs.
Elsie Grant, had been staying at a
nursing home in Brooksville for
several years prior to the opening
of what is now Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation Center in Trenton
on March 8, 1982.
"It's something we can all
be proud of," Frank Grant said
referring to the nursing home on its
opening day.
Though Mrs. Elsie Grant and her
son, Frank, have both passed away
now, their enthusiasm over the
opening of Medic-Ayers Nursing
Center was mirrored in the faces
of all who attended the facility's
30th Anniversary Celebration last
week.
Some 250 people gathered
at Ayers Health and Rehab on
Thursday, June 21, to celebrate not
only the Trenton facility's birthday,
but also its contributions to the
community over the years.
"We were very excited and proud
to have the community come out
and support us," said Jo Buckles,
administrator of Ayers Health and
Rehabilitation Center.
Buckles began working at Ayers


30 years ago, initially as a dietician,
before taking over as the facility's
administrator 22 years ago.
Though it started out as a 60-
bed facility focusing on providing
medical care to patients, Buckles
explained that the facility changed
it's philosophy some years back
to providing patient-centered
care, where the patients are able
to make decisions regarding their
health care.
"The 150 people who work
at Ayers are proud to be there.
providing care from the heart,"
Buckles said.
Medic-Ayers Nursing Center
was operated by Skilled Health
Services when it opened in 1982,
under the direction of Jane Mills,
the facility's director. On opening
day, Mills reported to the Gilchrist
County Journal that she had 40
applications from people wanting
to enter the facility. Today,
Buckles said the facility has 118
long-term care residents, as well as
individuals who enter the facility
for rehab.
Gary Rexroat spoke at the
anniversary celebration last week
and told everyone gathered that
when it was built in Trenton,
Medic-Ayers Nursing Center
was somewhat controversial, as
a handful of local residents were
opposed to the facility coming to

Scallop season may be extended

to September 24


By Carrie A. Mizell
Area scallop eaters are getting
out snorkels, dusting off masks and
checking dive flags in preparation for
Sunday, July 1, when the 2012 bay
scallop season officially opens.
Scallop season, which is regularly
open through September 10, may be
extended this season to September
24. The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
is expected to discuss possibly
extending the 2012 season at a
meeting on Thursday in Palm Beach
Gardens
Beginning July 1, bay scallops
can be harvested recreationally in
state water, which is shore to nine
nautical miles out in the Gulf. Scallop
boundaries are from the Pasco-
Hemando County line to the west
bank of the Mexico Beach Canal in


Bay
scallops
can be
harvested
along the
Gulf Coast
beginning
July 1.


Bay county .
As in years past, the bag limit is
two gallons of whole scallops or one
pint of meat per person, per day,' with
a boat limit of 10 gallons of whole
scallops or one-half gallon of meat.
Commercial harvesting of bay
scallops in Florida state waters is
prohibited.
FWC officers will be working


during scallop season to make sure
that everyone has an enjoyable, safe
day out on the water.
"With extra people on and in the
water, it is especially important
that divers and snorkelers properly
display a dive flag and boaters steer
clear of those in the water," said Col.
Jim Brown, director of the FWC's
Division of Law Enforcement.

COOKING AND


"It's difficult to think anything but
pleasant thoughts while eating a
home-grown tomato."
Lewis Grizzard

Even though the rain was coming
in a steady drizzle Monday, morning
it turned out to be a keeper due-to the
fact that we were truly in need of the
rain and my brother, Mike, brought
me a gift.
Nobody but me or maybe my
momma would be so excited about
a five gallon bucket full of fresh cut
okra. I looked into that bucket and
could almost smell the okra gumbo,
stewed okra and tomatoes or even a
big ol' pot of beef and vegetable soup
that will be cooked low and slow in
the fall and winter.
As the rain pelted down on our
back porch roof Mike and I talked
of his heirloom running butter beans
that crawl up his garden fence. He
has two kinds and has about selected
the one that's a keeper. His garden is
picture perfect due to the fact that he
can grow anything he sets his mind
to. It also helps that he can build an
excellent deer fence. Once he told
me, "You might as well fence it, be-
cause you can't kill 'em out, you'll
have 10 this year and 25 next year."
I've always thought of my older
brother Mike as a kind of MacGyver.
Mike can fix or repair anything from
a water pump to an air conditioner,
with a few hundred mechanical
things in between.
When Mike talks of his garden I
pay close attention you never know
when you will pick up a good garden-
ing tip. I also listen because he is my
big brother and even though I'm not
nine anymore I still pay close atten-
tion to what he has to say. At age nine
I decided he knew everything that
was important to know in the whole
world, that was the year he taught
me how to properly sharpen a pocket
knife.
A few short yae`lITater he fiight
me-tao dnrivhisrstiel-shift ol' yelow
Chevy pick-up. I still remember fly-
ing down those dusty dirt roads just a
grinding gears.
The okra I was gifted with which
now resides in plastic bags in our
freezer was a old variety known as
Cow Horn or Cow's Horn.
After Mike left I did a little research
on Cow's Horn Okra and found that it
truly is a very old variety dating back
as far as 1865 or earlier. That takes
this Southern variety back as far as
the Civil War or the War Between the
States.
The light green okra has a twisted
shape that resembles a cow's horn.
The pods can grow as long as 14
inches and, believe it or not, still be


tender. ow's Horn UOkra grows to be
6 to 7 feet tall and the pods still have
a real okra flavor that many say has
been bred out of modem okra variet-
ies.
We seem to have perfect okra
growing conditions here in this part
of Florida as it needs well-drained
soil and sunshine.
Thomas Jefferson grew okra in his
kitchen garden at Monticello. In fact,
he lined the edge of his garden with
okra. In the recorded recipes from
Monticello you will find many reci-
pes that included okra such as stewed
okra and tomatoes just as we eat to-
day.
The following recipe goes back
to Jefferson's family during the era
when he lived and farmed at Monti-
cello after his time as President.


4 quarts water
1 pound young okra, trimmed and
sliced
1 large onion, chopped
2 cups fresh lima beans
Salt and pepper to taste
1 chicken, cut up
1/4 pound salt pork or bacon
2 large pieces of thyme and pars-
ley
3 medium pattypan squash or yel-
low squash, trimmed and diced
5 medium tomatoes, peeled and
diced
2 tablespoons butter
1 rounded tablespoon all-purpose
flour
2 cups white rice, cooked
Bring water to a boil in large stock
pot to a rolling boil and add okra,
squash and onion. Let simmer for one
hour on low, then add lima beans and
simmer another 30 minutes. Next add
chicken, bacon or salt pork, thyme
and parsley and simmer for about 1
hour. Add tomatoes and salt and pep-
per to taste and continue cooking for
.another hour. Remove from heat and
dis.cardthe salt.pork or bacon (if.us-
ing bacon I would leave it in) and
herbs. Skim off any excess fat on
top of the soup. When ready to serve
bring to slow boil and kneed together
butter and flour in a small bowl, add
to soup and cook until lightly thick-
ened, about 5 minutes. Serve over a
cup of cooked rice in a warmed
bowl with one piece of chicken in the
each bowl.
This recipe calls for half a day's
cooking but mostly all the cooking is
done at a slow simmer which gives
the ingredients a lot of time to mel-
low and blend. Remember in Jeffer-
son's day all the cooking was done
over a open fire or in a hearth, either
way they used the hot coals to cook
with.


John's

Comments

By John M. Ayers
It seems like it was just yesterday
when a group of business leaders got
together in an attempt to have a nurs-
ing home located in Trenton. My dad
thought it was a great idea when Gary
Rexroat, a member of the North Cen-
tral Florida Health Planning Counsel,
shared his idea of a nursing home in
Trenton with Mr. Ayers and others
one morning over coffee at Lang-
ford's Cafe. Yes, that little, small res-
taurant that served some of the best
home-cooked meals in the area was
the spot where a lot of things were
discussed involving Trenton's future.
It was through Gary Rexroat's de-
sire to see a facility for the community
be located in Trenton and his sharing
with business people like Mr. Ayers
that this dream and vision 30 years
later has turned into a 5-Star nursing
home and rehabilitation center.
When Gary Rexroat gave a small
recount of the history of the work be-
I hind the scenes involving the facility
during the anniversary celebration
on Thursday afternoon, it was dur-
ing that time that I was again proud
that my father had the vision to again
see something that would become a
tremendous asset to the families and
their loved ones in this community.
Gary reported that the vision of a
nursing home was not popular with
everyone in attendance at the public
meeting on the second floor of the
Gilchrist County Courthouse. Many
people felt that the Gilchrist County
Commission would end up having to
pay for the bonds and the initial 60-
bed nursing home would not make it
in Trenton.
This facility was a dream by many
to provide needed health care to the
Trenton area to serve the families
when their need is great. It has been
through this continued vision that Jo
Buckles and her staff have made this
facility what it is today. Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation Center is a great
asset to the community and the staff's
diligence has provided a level of care
which we are all very proud of. It is
great people who are doing a 5-Star
job for those families in need.

History Lessons Tell The Future
(Kent Heaton)


Christopher Dawson wrote, "The victory that overcomes
the world is not success but faith and-it is only the eye of
faith that understands the true value of history" (The
Kingdom of God and History, 1937).. However man may
view history it is clear that the events of yesterday will
influence the actions of today and choices made tomorrow
will become the lessons of yesterday. History is the voice
of man's experience. Once placed upon the pages of time
the ink can never be dissolved. Often histories are
rewritten in a future generation to hide realities or shame
but history can no more be changed than turning the sun
dial backwards. All of the elements of yesterday stand on
their own merits with all the goodness and all the evil.
Many of the great men of God used history as a point of
lesson for God's people. At the end of his life, Moses sang
a powerful song of remembrance and praise to God of
truth and righteousness (Deuteronomy 32). He implores,
"Remember the days of old, consider the years of many
generations. Ask your father, and he will show you; your
elders, and they will tell you" (v7). Moses reviews the
history of Israel and Jehovah's care for them and that there
is "no God besides Me" (v39).
In the final days of Joshua we find the leader of the
conquering nation reminding the people of their heritage
(Joshua 24). The people enjoyed victory over the
inhabitants of the land as the Lord had given them victory
after victory. They stood on the threshold of a new dawn
as a people of God living in the promised land. Joshua
reminds them not to forget their history and the blessings
they now enjoy were given to them by God alone. "Now
therefore, fear the Lord, serve Hint in sincerity and in


truth, and put away the gods which your fathers served
on the other side of the River and in Egypt. Serve the
Lord" (Joshua 24:14).
The prophet Samuel used the coronation of Saul to refresh
the minds of the people who had demanded a king to lead
them as other nations (1 Samuel 12). His words were the
same message given by Joshua many years earlier. "If you
fear the Lord and serve Him and obey His voice, and do
not rebel against the commandment of the Lord, then
both you and the king who reigns over you will continue
following the Lordyour God" (v14). History has the same
theme generation after generation. The only success man
can hope to achieve is found in fearing the Lord God.
Fathers were to teach their children the history of God's
people (Deuteronomy 6-11 for example) so when their
children ask them in time to explain the meaning of certain
things they would understand. The book of Psalms is a
history book (Psalm 68; 78; 105; 106; 136). When the
returning Jews separated themselves from "allforeigners"
they proclaimed their fast with a recounting of the history
of Israel (Nehemiah 9). Stephen's powerful sermon in Acts
7 was a history lesson the Jews of Jesus' day needed to
learn and to obey. They chose instead to kill Stephen.
If we would be wise in our future we must be reminded of
our history. The Lord deals the same with every generation
and His righteousness and His justice has never changed. If
we can see God as He dealt with man yesterday then we
can know who God is today. More important we can see
what God will do tomorrow because He has told us about
our future. Learn history!

State of Emergency
due to tropical storm
On Monday, June 25, Florida Gov-
ernor Rick Scott issued Executive
Order 12-140, regarding the declara-
tion of a State of Emergency due to
the ongoing danger of Tropical Storm
Debby that continues to threaten the
State of Florida. This order ensures
state, regional, and local govern-
ments can take necessary actions to
protect the lives and property of the
people in threatened communities.


Dear Editor:
On behalf of all of the business
community in the City of Trenton
and the surrounding area, we would
like to extend our special thanks to
Pastor Terry Davis and his Living
Praise Church of God parishioners
for providing lunch on Friday the
22nd to the local businesses.
What an unexpectedly kind
and thoughtful gesture, that to my
recollection has never been done in
the last 30 years (that I have worked in
the local real-estate profession here,


or anywhere else for that matter!).
Please extend our sincere gratitude
to all your Church members that
worked so hard to make it happen.
We enjoyed the great meal together
and also appreciated the beautiful
card (and message within them).
May God continue to bless your
Church, and your entire congregation
at large. You've touched our hearts!
Thank you again,
Jean C. Troke,
Troke Realty, Inc. and staff

2012 Cal Ripken 10U SVL baseball

crowned District 6 Co-Champions

A -


The 2012 Cal Ripken 10U SVL Baseball'Team are, kneeling left to right, Jacob Guthrie, Wyatt Rutgerson;,
standing left to right, Ty Adkins, Garett Brooker, Parker Fergerson, Colton Hastings, Jason DeMartino,
Levi Fergerson, Zach Ford, Wyatt Langford, and Wyatt Thornton. Coaches, back row left to right, are
Jason DeMartino, Michael Langford, Kirk Brooker; not pictured is Scott Guthrie.


Submitted
The SVL O1U baseball team
had another successful .tournament
weekend. This time the team bringing
home District 6 Co-Champion honors.
Florida District 6 is comprised of 10
counties & 12 leagues from all over
North Florida. SVL finished with a 4-
1 record over the district tournament'
and was led by some timely defense,
a 'monster' home run, and a total of
43 runs scored.
In Thursday's morning opener,
SVL defeated Ft. White by a score
of 9-5. Ft. White had .a game plan
of keeping the SVL hitters guessing
with a mixture of pitches, but in the
end, SVL scored enough to secure
the win. Colton Hastings started on
the mound and was effective, leading


SVL with 7 strikeouts. SVL's defense
was shaky behind Hastings' solid
effort with Levi Ferguson coming
on in relief to pick up the save. The
afternoon game Thursday, SVLwent
up against Taylor County behind
'Wyatt Langford'on the mound. SVL
topped Taylor in a run ruled 12-2 win.
Langford went the distance with 7
strikeouts while orily giving up 3 hits,
and had plenty of run support from
the entire team.
Next up was Madison County oA
Friday. Jason DeMartino got the
nod to start the game on the mound
against the Madison 10U team. After
DeMartino issued 2 hits and 2 walks
in the top.of the 1st inning, Madison
had taken an early 3-0 lead, but that
is all.they would get as SVL earned a


5-3 victor~y. In the bottom of the first
inning, Wyatt.Thornton led SVL off
with double to the gap. After 2 quick
strikeouts to SVL, Wyatt Langford
came to the plate. Langford crushed
a home run over the dead center field
fence that still had 75 feet to spare.
Next up was Zach Ford who singled
and then scored on a wild throw on a
pick-off attempt to first base, which
ended the inning 3-3. After the 1st
inning DeMartino settled in to only
allow one batter above the minimum
over the next 5 innings with only 1
walk, no.hits, and 4 strikeouts. A
number of outstanding defensive
plays were made by Jacob Guthrie
at 2nd base, Parker Ferguson at 1st,
Langford at catcher, Hastings at 3rd,
Thornton at SS, Wyatt Rutgerson at
RF, Ford at CF, and Levi Ferguson at
LF. The loss for Madison sent them
to the loser's bracket where SVL
would have to face them again if they
advanced.
On Saturday, Madison County had
to play 'back in' the tournament by
beating Wakulla and then defeated
SVL by a score of 12-4. This time,
it whs Madison's pitching that
proved to be the difference. Wyatt
Thornton got the start, and was
cruising along nicely through 3
innings before Madison figured oIt


Thornton and broke the game open.
Wyatt Rutgerson came on in relief
for Thornton and did a good job of
keeping the scoring limited to give
SVL a chance. Unfortunately, SVL
was too flat the entire game and came
out on the wrong end, 'thus leaving
SVL and Madison in a win or go
home game Sunday for the District 6
championship.
SVL came into the final game
Sunday morning against Madison
with a better mindset and fought their
way to a thrilling, come from behind
victory 12-11. DeMartino was the
starting pitcher for SVL as he has had
recent success against the Madison
Cowboys; going 2-0 with a solid
defense behind him. It did not prove
to be effective this time around as
Madison was finally able to catch up
with DeMartino and led 6-0 after the
top of the 2nd inning. After Madison
issuedapair ofwalks to Levi Ferguson
and Guthrie, Thornton, Hastings, and
Parker Ferguson singled to make
the score 6-4 after the 2nd inning.
Levi Ferguson came on in relief in
the 3rd inning and kept Madison
scoreless. After giving up a couple
hits and 2 runs in the 4th inning,
Langford relieved Ferguson and did
a outstanding job, keeping Madison
and the score within,reach. Coming
into the bottom of the 5th inning, the
score was 11-6 with SVL trailing.
SVL plated 6 runs in the frame by a
combination of hitting and great base
running. Going into the top of the'
6th, the SVL 10U team was leading
by a score of 12-11 with Langford
looking to seal the score. Madison
flied out the first batter to Guthrie,
who made a leaping catch into the
fence in first base foul territory.. The
next batter was hit by a pitch and than
a single by the next Madison batter
had runners at 1st and 2nd with one
out. SVL than made the 2nd out force
at first by sacrifice bunt. This was an
aggressivecall by Madison moving 2
runners into scoring position, but was
also the 2nd out. Next up was the
lead-off batter, who creamed a line
drive to left center field and looked
to be in the gap to score the go ahead
runs. It was not to be as 'the catch'
was made. Zach Ford came racing
in and dove head.first, sliding and
than tumbling, squeezing the ball to
secure the win and most importantly,
SVL advancing to the Cal Ripken
State finals July 5-8th.
This finish pitted SVL against
.Suwannee for the final game, but was
not too be as Tropical Storm Debby
altered the plans. It was decided by
tournament organizers to name SVL
and Suwannee Co-Champions for
District 6. This marks 3 years in a
row this SVL team has qualified and
advanced to Cal Ripken State finals.

Jackson and Savannah are two of the most important reasons I have for running for
County Commissioner. They love to visit their Nana's farm, and to watch the wild animals
that live in the nearby forest. Deer, turkey, bobcats, gophers, quail, and song birds abound

rigors of hard work, and the cycle of life that goes on in
nature. They have discovered the cold waters of Hart
Springs and love it!
Gilchrist County is defined by its rivers, springs, forests,
and sand hills.. Our heritage and culture are built around
our water, and its effects on our life-style are almost magi-
S cal. As a community we should be able to expect our
S. elected officials, the SRWMD, and the FDEP to protect this
beautiful piece of "old Florida." Gilchrist is going to grow
and change, but it should be growth that respects and
protects our natural resources and the way of life of its
residents.
Let's all work together to see that this piece of "old Florida"
is preserved for our children and grandchildren.

Political advertisement paid for and approved by David Miller (Duke) Lang, nonpartisan, for Gilchrist County Court Judge-Group 1


Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County:
I decided to run for Gilchrist County Judge many years
ago! This was not a sudden decision on my part, but my
decision was made after many years of learning the law,
practicing law, presenting my client's cases before some
very good judges, and developing in myself what I
believe it takes to be a good county court judge.
My late father, Miller Lang, served honorably and faith-
fully as your Gilchrist County Court Judge for 22 years,
and through the years I watched him tirelessly serve the
citizens of Gilchrist County. He was what I would call a
true friend of the people he served; mainly, because he
respected the people who came before him, and he never
lost sight that he served the people. He always consid-
ered himself just a "common man," and his love for
Gilchrist County was instilled in me from birth.
During his career as your judge, my father was also
selected as the top-rated judge among all of the county
and circuit court judges in the eighth judicial circuit, and
he was consistently rated near the top by the attorneys
who practiced before him.
I watched my father help so many people during his
career and my goal since I have been practicing law has
been to follow in his footsteps and serve the people of
Gilchrist County as well as he did. I hope you will give
me this opportunity.
I wanted you to know that my desire to serve as your
county court judge is not a decision that was recently or
lightly made, but is a goal that I set many years ago.
Your vote on August 14, 2012 would be greatly
appreciated.


Sincerely,
Duke

Minimize use of your washing
machine. Go to the laundromat.
Rental of a portable toilet for a
temporary period may be another
option.
*Do not have the septic tank
pumped. Exceptionally high water
tables might crush a septic tank that
was pumped dry. If the fundamental
problem is high ground water,
pumping the tank does nothing to
solve that problem.
*Do not have the septic tank and
drainfield repaired until the ground has
dried. Often systems are completely
functional when unsaturated
conditions return. Any repair must
be permitted and inspected by your
county health department.
"As rainfall continues and flooding
occurs, DOH will help staff special
needs shelters, monitor water
quality, respond to emergencies,
work with communities outreach to
underserved individuals and serve in
the Emergency Operations Center,"
said State Surgeon General Dr. John
H. Armstrong.
"I urge Floridians to be prepared
with emergency supplies, as well as
personal and family disaster plans."

SRWMD to hold
meeting on
fee-based hunting
opportunities July 5
Submitted
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) will hold
a public meeting on July 5 to discuss
fee-based hunting opportunities. The
meeting will take place from 6-8 p.m.
at the District's headquarters, 9225
CR.49, Live Oak. .-


Gilchrist League 8U Girls Softball wins 2nd

in the Babe Ruth District Tournaments
The Gilchrist League 8U Girls softball competed in the Babe Ruth Districts in Alachua on June 22-24 and
placed second in the tournament. They will move on to the state competition July 4-8 in Ocala. On front

Lillian Wilkerson, Michelle Heilig, Emma Hutto, Christina Franks. Back row Coach Shawn Hutto, Coach
Devin Colley; not pictured are Mazie McDonald and Coach Sean Colley.


The District is exploring options
to expand hunting through generat-
ing user fees, offering hunting leases
- including a proposal to lease the
District's Mud Swamp Tract and
other methods. The meeting will give
stakeholder groups a chance to pro-
vide input and offer suggestions for
that process.
The District will continue to of-
fer hunting opportunities on nearly
105,000 acres of lands.
"The District is looking for ways
to increase hunting opportunities
while reducing the net cost of man-
aging public lands," said District Se-
nior Land Resources Manager Bob
Heeke.
A proposed hunting lease for the
District's 836-acre Mud Swamp Tract
came before the District's Governing
Board in June, but the board decided
to delay action to get public input to
accommodate the concerns of stake-
holder groups.
Heeke said because hunting is not
currently allowed at Mud Swamp,
the project would expand hunting
and .fishing opportunities,, The tract
receives minimal recreational use
from the public.

The next time you climb into

seats and the steering wheel are
just slightly cooler than a fully-
fired charcoal grill, think of it as
a reminder that it's a good time to
donate blood.
Summer, when school is out
and families hit the road for vaca-
tions, is a time when donors are
in short supply, but the need for
blood is as strong as ever. If it's
been a while since you donated,
there's no better time than now.
In about the time it would take
to shop for groceries for a week
or knock out a crossword'puzzle a
blood donor can save a life.
Donors must be 17 or older, or
16 with parental consent, weigh a
minimum of 110 pounds and be
in good health. A photo ID is also
required. Donors get cookies and
a cool t-shirt. Roll up your sleeve

Heart Matters


Nehemiah #13
Submitted by Angie Land
The word courage is defined as "the
capacity to meet danger or difficulty
with firmness; bravery." The word
capacity caught my attention because
we often speak of courage or bravery
as something a person has rather than
something we all have the ability to
receive. In order to extend our un-
derstanding of this definition, think
about the words encourage and dis-
courage. Encourage means to inspire
courage, while discourage means to
deprive of courage. Encouragement,
as well as discouragement, is accom-
plished through what is believed to
be true.
One of my favorite Bible stories
that illustrate this truth concerns an
Israelite named Gideon. God called
Gideon a,"mighty warrior" and sent
him to battle the Midianites, the op-
pressive enemy of Israel. The catch
here is that Gideon did not. believe
himself to be a warrior at all, let alone
a mighty one! He was discouraged to
put it mildly. Take a look at how God
dealt with Gideon's lack of courage:
"During that night the Lord said to
Gideon, 'Get up, go down against
the camp, because I am going to give
it into your hands. If you are afraid
to attack, go down to the camp...and
listen to what they are saying. After-
ward, you will be encouraged to at-
tack'the camp.,.'" (Judges 7:9-11).
First of all, I love the fact that be-
fore verse 11 ends, Gideon was on his
way. This confirms his fear and dis-
couragement up to this point, but also
his capacity for courage. He went to
find it! Second, where would this en-
couragement come from? Remember
that encouragement comes through
what we believe to be true, and Gide-


Angie Land


on heard a new truth...the Midianites
were afraid of him! (Continue read-
ing verses 13-15). Knowing the truth
gave Gideon the courage he needed
to advance to victory.
If we aren't armed with the truth,
discouragement can be a vicious en-
emy. As we turn to chapter 6 in our
Nehemiah series, our resident bad
guys are at it again. Seeingthe wall
progressing so quickly was more
than they could stand, so Sanballat,
Tobiah and Geshem launch a cam-
paign to steal Nehemiah's courage.
After sending four different messag-
es requesting a meeting, to which Ne-
hemiah continually refused, a threat-
ening letter was received. The letter
implied that Nehemiah was plotting
a revolt against the King of Persia,
and if he didn't want this to get back
to the king, Nehemiah really needed
to meet with them. Attempted black-
mail. Except it doesn't work when
,there is nothing to hide. I love Nehe-
miah's response, "Nothing like what
you are saying is happening; you are
just making it up out of your head."
(Nehemiah 6:8) Nehemiah knew this
was nothing more than a bluff, and he
had nothing to fear because God had
granted favor with the King.
Nehemiah refused to be discour-
aged because he knew and believed
the truth. Gideon was encouraged be-
cause he heard and believed the truth.
This holds true for us as well...no
matter what we are struggling with
or in what area we are seeking vic-
tory, the truth is that God has a plan
and purpose for every life. Fight dis-
couragement with the truth of God's
Word, and be encouraged knowing
that when we seek the Lord, He will
let us find Him...because every heart
matters.
Blessings, Angie

2011 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
for/the City of Trenton, FL
PWSID# 2211188
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to
provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We
are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. Our water source is drawn ground water from two wells. The wells draw water from the Floridan aquifer and the water is then chlorinated for
disinfection purposes.
In 2011, the Department of Environmental Protection performed a Source Water Assessment on our system. The assessment was conducted to provide information about any potential sources of
contamination in the vicinity of our wells. There are four potential sources of contamination identified fofrthis system with moderate susceptibility levbl. The assessment results are available on the FDEP
Source Water Assessment and Protection Program website at w%,w.dep.state.fl.us/swapp..
This report shows our water quality results and what they mean.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact Taylor Brown at (352) 463-4000. We encourage our valued customers to be informed about their water utility. If
you want to learn more, please attend any of our regularly scheduled meetings. They are held on the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month beginning at 5:30 pm at Trenton Community Center.
The City of Trenton routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the
results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31 2011. Data obtained before January 1, 2011, and presented in this report are from the most recent testing done in accordance with the
laws, rules, and regulations.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking wafer. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment
technology.
Maxiinum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of
microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use
of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mgil) one part.by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (g/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample. /

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with
service lines and home plumbing. City of Trenton is responsible for providing high quality drinking.water, but cannot controlthe variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been
sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your
water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and.steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at
http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it
dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or
farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban
stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration
(FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a
health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have
undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking
water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe
Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
We at the City of Trenton would like you to understand the efforts we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to insuring the quality of
your water. If you have any questions or concerns about the information provided, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.

T'he quilt blocks of My Grandmother's Garden done in English paper
;piecing. The handwriting looks like this could have been done in the
"2930s.


feel just right" or "down in the back"
or fighting off the effects of various
treatments. 'Don't stop keeping busy.
You are missed and we want to see
you back with us. There is a rocking
chair waiting for you.
Thursday, we found an amazing
discovery. In one of the tin boxes,
there were several quilt blocks of My
'Grandmother's Garden done with
English paper piecing.: From the
handwriting on the paper, these may
have' been done in the 1930p. At that
time, the fabric and paper were held
together with long basting stitches
and then the quilter went over each
piece with very small hand stitching.
We hope to put these in a shadow box
for all to see. This unknown quil-
ter used whatever paper was avail-
able-possibly an old letter. Today's
quilters still do paper piecing some-
times with a light weight cardboard.
After the quilt or quilt block is com-
plete, the paper is removed.
I've finally made the plunge to make
a baby quilt. I found a small packet
of pre-cut squares for next to nothing
at Haven Hospice. I'm making this
"all by .myself." Cathy laid put the
pattern, I ironed the squares and then
Ailien squared up the blocks, then I
sewed the blocks into rows. My next
steps will be to iron the rows and sew
them together. Then it's back to the
Museum for help with sandwiching
the batting. I'm learning especially
when I'm doing this "all by myself"
with a lot of help from friends.
Don't forget you're invited to join
us in our potluck lunch about 11:30
a.m. and to test out the rocking chairs.
We're open Tuesday thru Saturday

STREETWISE
By Lauren Rudd


Wall Street can be a frustrating
place, especially when the intrinsic
value of a company's shares goes
unnoticed. Unfortunately there will
be times, actually many times, when
regardless of how well a company
has performed in the past and how
upbeat its future looks going forward,
it is ignored.
So what do you do in such an
instance? Relax, because the only
cure is time. If a company is a true
performer, and if the earnings are
there quarter after quarter and year
after year, then it is only a matter of
time until the shares come into their
own.
An excellent example of an often
ignored stock, and one. you might
want to investigate, is PetSmart
(PETM). This company is a particular
favorite of mine for reasons other
than investment returns, given my
indubitable collection of pets.
A year ago my earnings estimate
for fiscal 2012 was $2.42 with a
12-month target price on the shares
of $49, thereby returning a capital
gain of 13 percent. The shares had
closed back then at $43.27, while the
company earned $2.01 per share for
FY 2011.
So how did the company do? This

is one selection that I have to give
myself a bit of pat on the back as the
shares recently closed at $69.36 for a
capital gain of 60 percent. Earnings
came in at $2.55, or- 5.40 percent
ahead of my $2.42 estimate.
Then last month PetSmart reported
first quarter earnings of $0.85 per
share, up 39 percent when compared
to the $0.61 per share during the same
period a year ago. Net income was
$95 million for the first quarter of
this year as compared to $71 million
a year ago.
Total sales for the first quarter
of 2012 increased 9.4 percent to
$1.6 billion. The increase was
partially impacted by $2 million
.in, -unfavorable ,foreign : currency
fluctuations. Comparable store sales,
or sales in stores open at least a year,
grew by 7.4 percent, benefiting from
comparable transactions growth of
3.3 percent. Services sales, which
are included in total sales, grew 8.3
percent to $181 million.
During the first quarter, the
company generated $150 million
in operating cash flow, spent $36
million in capital expenditures,
distributed $15 million in dividends,
and repurchased $175 million of its
own shares. The company ended the
quarter with $341 million in cash,
cash equivalents and restricted cash
and zero borrowings on its credit
facility.
While 2012 contains a 53rd week,
for all of 2012, PetSmart is projecting
comparable store sales growth in
the mid-single digit range, and total
sales growth in the 9 to 10 percent
range. The company is also raising
its earnings per share guidance from
a previous range of $3.02 to $3.16,
to the current guidance of $3.19 to
$3.31.
The impact of the extra week is
estimated to be.$120 million in sales
and $0.16 in EPS. For the second
quarter of 2012, the Company
indicated that it expects comparable
store sales growth in the mid-single
digit range, and earnings of between

$0.61-and $0.65 per share.
You might- also be interested
in knowing that since 1994,
PetSmart Charities, an independent
501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare
organization and the largest founder
of animal welfare efforts in North
America, has provided more
than $165 million-in grants and
programs benefiting animal welfare
organizations. Through its in-store pet
adoption partnership with PetSmart
Charities, PetSmart has helped save
the lives of nearly 5 million pets.
PetSmart recently announced an
increase its quarterly dividend by
18 percent from $0.14 to $0.165 per
share beginning in the second quarter
:of: fiscal 2012. ., Meanwhile, ..the
intrinsic value of the.shares using a
discounted earnings approach is $77.
A more conservative discounted free
cash flow to the firm model generates
an intrinsic value of $104. The shares
recently closed at 69.36.
My earnings estimate for 2012 is
$3.28 per share for a forward P/E of
21 based on the current share price,
and a projected 12-month share price
of $77 for a capital gain of 12 percent
and a P/E of 23, as compared to
today's P/E of 25. In addition, there
is an indicated dividend yield of 0.8
percent.

"It took someone with the stature
of Min Ayers to get it pushed through
all the hurdles it had to go through."
Rexroat said on Monday. "The
facility has been a blessing to all of us
over the years. It has helped so many
people."
Despite having offered the land for
the facility to be built on, Min Ayers
wrote in his newspaper column.
dated January 28. 1982. that all the
credit for Medic-Ayers Nursing
Center being built in Trenton should

be given to Gary Rexroat. Abeloved
PA in the community. Rexroat als6
served on the North Central Florida
Health Planning Council, so he was
in a position ,to provide a valuable
service in promoting Trenton as the
site, Ayers explained.
Over the years, Ayers Health
and Rehabilitation Center has won
numerous awards. It has been rated a
5 Star Facility by Medicare.gov and
has been ranked #1 Center of the Year
for the State of Florida three years in
a row.

3 state departments combine


Monthly a.mntpr10i 0 orifwied

On July 1, officers and staff fromt
the Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and the Department
of Agricultural and Consumer
Services (DACS) will be combined
with the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
in a move directed by the Florida
Legislature and approved by Gov.
Rick Scott. The 145 new sworn
officers will don FWC uniforms and
integrate completely into the ranks of
the FWC, resulting in more efficient
service to Floridians and visitors.
"We will have more field-level
officers available' to respond to
calls," said Col. Jim Brown, division
director. "New and current FWC
officers will be expected to patrol
state forests, state parks, wildlife
management areas and state waters as
a more efficient and effective team."
The reorganization will save the
state more than $3 million over the
next five years and $1.28 million in
recurring, annual savings.
"Tlhough rearranging extra
management and support positions,
the consolidation will establish
additional patrol and first-response
capabilities and expand law
enforcement coverage," Brown said.
The public can expect to see FWC
officers in state parks and state forests
and call upon them for help.
"We will continue to provide
excellent resource protection,
boating-and-waterways services and


public safety protection," Brown
said.
People should report fish and
wildlife crimes, boating violations
as well as environmental crimes and
state park and state forest issues to
the FWC's Wildlife Alert Hotline
888-404-3922. DEP's Bureau of
Emergency Response (BER) will
not move to the FWC, but will
continue responding to emergency
chemical spills and working with
law enforcement on environmental
crime matters at DEP. DEP's
emergency numbers, #DEP or 877-
2-SAVEFL should be used to report
environmental emergencies, such as
oil and chemical spills.
"The consolidation of officers will
provide a more extensive network of
environmental crime law enforcement
coverage throughout Florida," said
BER Chief Gwen Keenan.
In 2011. the Florida Legislature
created a Law Enforcement
Consolidation Task Force, which
met to develop -work, groups and
evaluate functions of several law
enforcement agencies. Ultimately, it
recommended that DEP's Division
of Law Enforcement be integrated
into the FWC's Division of Law
Enforcement. It also suggested that
some personnel from the DACS Office
ofAgricultural Law Enforcement, the
officers assigned to patrol state forests
and the investigators responsible for
commercial aquaculture violations,
be incorporated.
