Bell man charged


with DUI


Manslaughter


By Carrie A. Mizell
A 2009 graduate of Bell High
School was arrested last week and
charged with DUI Manslaughter,
DUI Serious Bodily Injury and DUI
Property Damage following a January
accident that killed a Lake City man.
Brandon Blanchard, 22, of Bell
is being held in the Dixie County
Jail on a $450,000 bond after being
arrested on Tuesday, Aug. 7 by
Florida Highway Patrol troopers. He
is scheduled to appear before a judge
on September 13, 2012.
Blanchard was reportedly driving
a Chevrolet pickup truck north along
State Road 349 in Dixie County on
January 21, 2012.
At 7 a.m. Blanchard crossed the
centerline of the highway and into
the path of a Dodge pickup truck that
was pulling a boat and trailer south
on State Road 349.
The head-on collision caused the
driver of the Dodge pickup truck
Michael Joyner, 56, of Lake City
to be trapped inside his vehicle
as it became engulfed in flames.
Dixie County Fire Rescue workers
pronounced Joyner dead at the scene
of the accident.
Joyner was a lifelong resident
of Lake City and a father to three
children.
At the time of his death, Joyner
worked at Champion Home Builders.
He was also a certified official and
reportedly enjoyed officiating at high
school sporting events throughout
the area.
Donna Tucker, 49, of Branford,
was a passenger in Joyner's truck
when the accident occurred. She
was not wearing a seatbelt and was
ejected from the Dodge pickup truck
on impact. Tucker incurred serious
injuries in the accident.
Blanchard was also not wearing a
seatbelt at the time of the accident.

Farm to Family Full Moon Festival in Gilchrist County


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
will hold a Public Hearing to consider
Special Use Permit 2012-5 involving
Gilchrist .Fundraiser Recreation and
Music Park on Monday, Aug. 20, at
5:30 p.m.
High Springs Lions Club, Inc.
and Lanier Smith are agents for
Lowell and Patricia Chesborough of
High Springs who own the 115-acre
residential subdivision.
This SUP application would allow
music festivals and concerts to be held
on the residential A-2 property. The
application would allow the festivals
to exceed 250 persons attending a
single event at one time.
The agents have described a
temporary office and security trailer
to be relocated on the property when
concerts will be held.
The next Farm to Family Festival
is scheduled for September 28-
30, 2012. Another music festival
combined with a. Haunted House is
planned for the weekend preceding
Halloween, October 25-27, 2012.
The Lions Club typically has


Turkey Shoots in October and
November and these events would be
held on Saturday for a few hours as
attendance at the park dictates.
Due to the park not having indoor
facilities, daily activities such as
sports and eco day camps are planned.
Outdoor concert events will resume
in March and would be scheduled as
one, two and three day events.
Neighbors in the surrounding
residential subdivisions are concerned
from past events that large crowds
and high traffic congestion and loud
drums after midnight will disrupt
the residential atmosphere the A-2
zoning preserves.

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, AUG(itST 16, 2012


writing this column on the eve
primaryy Election.
1 would like to thank all those
.n for public office. This year's
candidates gave the voters of
unty some real good choices in
ar'ss election.
:ently spoke to one of my Levy
y friends and told her some of
voices in the county races are so
it is truly hard to decide. Do you
e what a blessing that is in this
nd age? We are truly blessed to
a a place where good people still
public office and the chance to
their fellow man.
te thing leads to another and I
n thinking about past elections
looked back in an old Gilchrist
ty Journal until I found the 1972
me where I found the election
Its for the primary election some
,ears ago. In those days there was
imary election, a second primary
tion and a general election.
he September 14, 1972,. head-
s read, "Horace Thomas, Ray
prison, Charlie Parrish, Eli Read,
3. Mathis, Willie Mae Jones Win-
s In Election On Tuesday." That
ir some 1,504 people voted in the
:ond Primary Election. In 1972,
County had nine precincts, today
have ten. The population in 1972
the county was 3,551. In 2011 the
pulation was 17,004.
During the General Election which
as held November 16, 1972, our
>unty voted 1,306 for Nixon and
17 for McGovern.
I also ran across some interesting
icts about our agriculture here in a
me 1972 issue.
The State Farmers Market was a
usy place shipping melons out and
aey were also leaving Trenton by
ail back in those days.
At the time the melons were bring-
ng 3 cents and cucumbers were
)ringing $4.00 a bushel which was
a good price according to the article


about the cucumber belt.
This week's recipe is a simple reci-
pe for home fries. This recipe is good
served in the morning or for supper
with pork chops.



6 large red potatoes
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup bell pepper
3 tablespoons butter or bacon drip-
pings
1 teaspoon seasoning salt of choice
Salt and black pepper to taste

In a large stock pot of salted water
add peeled and cubed potatoes (about
_ inch cubes) and bring water to boil.
Then boil about 5 minutes just until
potatoes just begin to get soft. Drain
potatoes and set aside. In a well-sea-
soned cast iron frying pan add butter,
onions and peppers and cook until
just tender. Then add the potatoes
and cook over med-high heat until
the potatoes are golden brown on all
sides. Let the potatoes brown well
before stirring them. Add seasoning
to taste with seasoning salt, salt, and
black pepper.
This recipe makes 4 servings.

Now atA 7ket
By Carrie A. Mizell


Like many parents, my eyes will
undoubtedly fill with tears as I walk
my daughter to class on her first day
ol school.
For Allie Claire, August 2012
will mark the first year of a lengthy
education as she starts preschool, or
playschool as its called in southeast
Georgia.
Over the last six months, my girl
has asked countless times if I am go-
ing to drive her bus to school. Not
likely, since my driving record is less
than stellar. 1 sure don't know who
in their right mind would issue this
momma a CDL!
Allie Claire has been so excited
about the prospect of going to school
and in my heart I know she's ready,
but I wasn't sure I was ready for her
to go five days a week, from 8:30
a.m. to 2:45 p.m. That's a long day
for my 3-year-old. Instead, I found
a playschool just up the road from


our Callahan house that is run by a
retired teacher. Allie Claire will go
to playschool two mornings a week
from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. this fall.
Instruction will include saying the
Pledge of Allegiance, singing folk
songs, saying a prayer, learning the
ABCs and 123s, as well as learning
to write her name, and best of all,
good manners and how to interact
well with other.kids.
The playschool reminds me so
much of the little preschool 1 attend-
ed as a child. It was held three days a
week at the Methodist church in Tren-
ton and the teachers were Della Aylor
and Connie Surrency. I have such
sweet memories of preschool, where
I met friends that I ended up going all
the way through high school with.
Hopefully my daughter, and all the
students entering schools in Gilchrist
County next week will have a won-
derful school year.

Lessons From The Fig Tree
(Kent Heaton)


As Jesus traveled from Bethany to Jerusalem he passed by
a fig tree and being hungry, went to see if the tree had figs.
From a distance the tree looked as if it were bearing fruit as
it had leaves out of season. When the Lord came to the tree
he did not find any figs on the tree and in response Jesus
said, "Let no one eat fruit from you ever again" (Mark
11:14). The next day as they traveled by the fig tree, the
disciples saw the fig tree dried up for the roots. "And
Peter, remembering, said to Him, 'Rabbi, look! The fig
tree which You cursed has withered away.' So Jesus
answered and said to them,, 'Have faith in God. For
assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain,
'Be removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt
in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be
done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to
you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that
you receive then, and you will have them. "And
whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against
anyone, forgive him, that your Father inh heaven nay also.
forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive,
neither will your Father in heaven forgive your
trespasses'" (Mark 11:21-26).
There are important lessons in this story. We see first the
humanity of Jesus. Mark 11:12 says that Jesus was hungry.
Our Lord experienced all the human emotions and needs of
men. Ile.grew tired (John 4:6); needed sleep (Luke 8:23);
was thirsty (John 19:28); suffered (Matthew 27:26-31); and
he died (Matthew 27:50). In the story of the fig tree the
humanity of Jesus is seen when l e saw the tree from a
distance but had to go to the tree to see if there were figs.
Our I ord was man.


The divinity of Jesus is seen in Him cursing the tree. He
spoke to the tree and the next day the tree was dead from its
roots. Mark notes the disciples heard Jesus curse the tree
(Mark 11:14) and this impacted Peter the next day when he
rememberedd" what Jesus said (Mark 11:21). The miracles
of Jesus were powerful, demonstrative and given as signs
that He was the Son oftGod (John 20:30-31).
Jesus was the consummate teacher and using the occasion
of the.fig tree He taught His disciples the power of power
and conditions of prayer. The fig tree did not die because
someone cut its roots with a shovel or poured poison on it.
It died because of the power of Jesus' words and His faith in
the promises of the Father. The demonstration of His words
to curse a tree should ring loudly of the power of God's will
working through I is disciples. "Have faith in God" Jesus
says. Ask for those things that are impossible and let God
work in your life. Trust in the will of God to give you hope.
Prayer is always conditional and Jesus interjects the need
of relationships in prayer. Forgiveness cannot be given from
a powerful God when forgiveness will not be granted to one
another. It may be our prayers are hindered because we
have not forgiven others. The power of Jesus resided in a
relationship HIe had with the Father and with lis fellow
man. Prayers cannot be answered when the barrier of an
unforgiving heart captures the spirit of the heart's desire.
Answered prayers come from hearts free from the guilt of
unlfrgiving hearts.
The fig tree died for being unfruitful and out of season. We
must not let the toils of this life make us unfruitful or out of
season with the work of the Lord.

J.M. "Murph"

Everett FFA

Arena
Dear Editor,
The arena should be named the
J.M. "Murph" Everett FFA Arena.
Mr. Everett was a superb human be-
ing whose noble life touched so many
in this county and beyond. I have spo-
ken with many elderly citizens over
the years who remember "Murph" as
a young man and speak of his many
qualities apparent even when he was
very young. He was the consumn-
mate Southern gentleman in every
way. While it was my honor to get to
know him when he was much older, 1
was always struck by his wisdom and
manners after he retired from teach-
ing and served on the school board.
He visited my class a number of
times upon request and recounted his
service in the US Army in Korea dur-
ing the war. Students loved him and
he always related his personal ex-
periences in a historical context and
lauded the courage of fellow soldiers
and even the gallantry of the enemy.
It was not until he passed that I read
he was awarded four Bronze Stars for
bravery in combat, though I suspect-
ed he was more heroic than his strong
sense of modesty revealed.
What I remember very well was
the excitement that sustained him
during the war: Permission from.the
father to write a channing young
lady back home named Midge who
would become his wife for 57 years.
If a person wants to understand the
love between husband and wife, they
should have met Murph and Midge.
Those two still had the gleam in their
eyes of love-struck teenagers long af-
ter their youth had faded. They were
a beautiful thing to behold and an
excellent example of what marriage
means.
Their love for each other transcend-
ed all they did. If you were with Mr.
Everett, you could count on seeing
numerous hugs. Wherever he went
in this area, former students greeted
him with love, respect, appreciation
and warmth. He and Midge were just
the kind of people that epitomized
those qualities.
Mr. Everett lobbied for the arena
to be built in his capacity as school
board member and long-time sup-
porter of the FFA. As a former teacher
he inspired and motivated thousands
of students to excell in farming. He
was active in serving this community
as President of the Gilchrist County
Historical Society and established our
marvelous Memorial Day tradition of
honoring our fallen. Most who knew
Murph were unaware he was an ex-


cellent athlete and awarded a scholar-
ship to the University of Florida foot-
ball team following the Korean War,
but crippling frostbite sustained there
rendered him unable to Ifulill it. The
injury plagued him the rest of his life,
but he was never one to complain.
Gilchrist County lost one of its fin-
est when Mr. Everett went home to
Jesus Christ last year and naming
the arena in his honor is a small way
of preserving the memory of a great
Christian, patriot, and citizen that we
who remain should-strive to emulate.
Sincerely,
Dan Taylor

Opposed to

Music Park

Gilchrist County Commissioners and
County Administrator:.
We are once again writing in refer-
ence to the proposed Special Use per-
mit sought by Lowell Chesborough /
Gilchrist Fundraisers Recreation and
Music Park.
We are strongly opposed to a per-
manent music park in the proposed
NE State Road 47 area.
This is a zoned rural residential
area and events such as this do not
belong here, plain and simple. There
are areas that have already been de-
termined and zoned for such activi-
ties as Farm to Family offers where
there would be no complaints of
noise and traffic.
As more information is released
(from the Lions Club and informa-
tion about,this events previous loca-
tions) it is obvious that the tempo-
rary permit conditions could not be
adhered to and other neighborhoods
have fought (and won!) to keep this
from becoming a permanent event in
their residential area.
As lifelong citizens of the State of
Florida and landowners and taxpay-
ers of Gilchrist County, we respect-
fully request full consideration for
denial of this rezoning request.
With the current economic climate
and especially with the decline of
our home values, we urge you to re-
spect the rights to the properties we
citizens have purchased that offers us
the lifestyle that lured us to live here
in Gilchrist County.
Sincerely,
Diane Morgan


Dear Editor:
Shame on you Lanier Smith, for
trying to mislead the residents of the
surrounding subdivisions of St. Rd.
47 and NE 30th St., by sending out
letters to the residents in our area
stating that we are confused about
your intentions.
The facts speak for themselves. An
application has been submitted and
signed by you on behalf of Lowell
Chesborough, the property owner, to
the Gilchrist County Planner's office
for a Land Use Change to allow for
a permanent overnight recreational
music camping park, an entity known
as Gilchrist Fundraisers Recreational
Music Park.
Sir, what are we confused about?
Anyone can contact the County
Planner's Office at 352-463-3173 for
clarification and or a PDF to view for
themselves what you have submit-
ted.
Shame-on you for trying to mislead
the decent-people of Gilchrist County
and hide your true intentions.
Sincerely,
Dee Halliday

Dear Editor,
I am writing to voice my disap-
proval of the proposed re-zoning of
the Lowell Chesborough property to
a Recreation and Music Park. I re-
side approximately 3 miles from this
property and have experienced not
only the traffic, but the loud music
and drums throughout the event. I
have no problem with the Farm to
Family event, however, another area
that is NOT residential can be found
and would be more appropriate.
As a resident of Gilchrist County,
1 do expect my voice and opposition
to this re-zoning to be recognized and
considered by the Gilchrist County
Commissioners.
Sincerely,
Brooke Morgan

Dear Editor,
This letter concerns the Special
Use Permit for a Music Park located
on property at SR 47 and NE 30th
Street in NE Gilchrist County. This
matter is to come before the Board of
County Commissioners at their meet-
ing on Monday, Aug. 20, 2012.
I live in that area and am amazed at
the lack of common sense that people
have regarding our rights as citizens
of these United States. The First
Amendment to the Constitution gives
us the Right to Free Speech. Lately,


in this area of Gilchrist County in
particular, this right is being taken
from us. The neighbors living in this
area have learned that promoters are
in the planning stages of creating a
Music Park on property that is part
of our quiet, rural neighborhood, and
some of the concerned members of
the community have set up a website
www.stopthemusicpark.com to post,
document and discuss this issue.
They have gone house to house
informing the neighbors of the pro-
posed changes to our surrounding
land and have spent their own money
to have signs printed advising the
community so all in the area will be
informed. These signs are being tak-
en down even though many of them
have been posted on private property.
Just this week, 1 watched as a county
employee posted the required notice
of the County Commission Meet-
ing on August 20th for the hearing
of this Special Use Permit. By the
next afternoon both officially posted
signs had been torn down. There are
too many issues with this particular
matter to list here. The website ad-
dresses many of the viewpoints but
the reason for this letter is to ask the
promoters and their supporters these
questions, "If your proposed venue
for this property is supposed to be for
such a good thing, even though your
Sponsor Guide and your letters to us
as neighbors state two completely
different concepts for the property,
why are you trying your best to elimi-
nate any visible notifications of your
intent?" "Are you trying to hide the
real purpose of the development of
this property?" I urge all concerned
citizens to please attend the County
Commission Meeting on this Spe-
cial Use Permit for a Music Park to
be held on Monday, Aug. 20, and
let your voice be heard. If you can-
not attend please contact each of the
county commissioners to voice your
opinion. Last I checked we, as citi-
zens of the United States of America,
still do possess that right.
Debbie Pittenger

Dear Editor,
There has been a lot of discussion
recently regarding the Farm to Fam-
ily project in my area.
As a nearby homeowner I urge oth-
ers to pay attention to what is really
going on. I think that there may be
some misunderstanding regarding
the full scope of this project.
The Full Moon Farm to Family is
ain event that was moved to our loca-
tion last year because the neighbors
where it was previously held com-
plained about the loud music. This
event happens for 3 days, 4 times a
year.
While there are some of us out here
who are not thrilled about it, I think


for the most part had it stayed at 4
times a year and, had the people who
were in charge followed the rules of
their temporary permits there would
not ever have been a problem.
I have been to a Farm to Family
event and enjoyed the variety of mu-
sic and talented musicians. The prob-
lem is "The project."
We are zoned for residential and
agriculture. Farm to Family/Lions
Club group wants to re-zone the area
and put in a recreation and music
park complete with large dining hall,
meeting halls, administration, main-
tenance and security building, cab-
ins, pool (all this is on their website).
They want it to be a premier camp-
ing destination and have continuous
activities. It seems that others have
formed opinions about those of us
who live nearby and are trying to stop
this from happening. While I do not
mind the occasional Farm to Family,
that is not REALLY the issue any-
more.
I try to be fair and giving about
the Lions club charities, however my
family is very close to the perimeter
of the proposed Music and REC-
REATIONAL facility and this very
much affects us. 1 can't just walk
away from the drum circle, traffic,
potential noise etc. People say we
(the neighbors around proposed site)
should try to work things out with
the Lions Club. Did you know that at
no time did anyone from there try to
discuss this with the property owners
PRIOR to us finding out about this on
our own? This is no longerjust an oc-
casional full moon concert but con-
tinuous activities of'all kinds. Did
you know that when they had their

temporary permits they did not fol-
low the rules those permits entailed
(crowd size and noise time limits)? It
is not that any property owner here
is selfish or unwilling to share what
we have found out here. We were ok
with the original Farm to Family. It is
just that all of us bought into a com-
munity that is zoned as residential
and agriculture. The owners/leasees
of the proposed site have not really
been honest, have actually tried to
slide many things through, obviously
hoping no one would notice.
Now I ask you how are we sup-
pose to feel??? Do we and would
YOU really just sit back to wait and
see what became of your neighbor-
hood. Please try not to judge those of
us who live here and will be around
all of this 24/7, that is every minute
of every day. All we want is what we
bought into; when we tried to share
fairly we were taken advantage of. I
ask that those of you out there who
feel strongly about the Farm to Fam-
ily 4 times a year concerts please go
to the website and on the right click
on support the project and become
informed. Many of the people who
live out here have been here 10- 20
years, we have worked hard to buy
our land and build our homes. All of
us out here are here for the peace, qui-
et, nature, stars. Many of us struggle
to stay out here. Many of us drive to
Gainesville and further to work so we
can be here. (It is hard to go to work
early on a weekend morning when
you have been hearing a drum circle
til 4 a.m.) Again this no longer about
the 4 times a year full moon concerts,
it is about people with possibly good
intentions who seem to forget about
the lives their project will be affect-
ing.
I am certain there is the perfect
place for this project, my question to
you is "Would you want it next door
to you? Should I?"

Letters to the Editor Healthier lunches will be
Served at Gilchrist schools


Dear Mr. Ayers:
I am writing to express my concern
over the proposed Music Park off SR
47. I confess 1 am somewhat dis-
mayed at the proposal that our zoning
be changed to allow this, especially
as I have read that the location was
already moved once because such
venues are inappropriate in residen-
tial areas and that other, more suit-
able, locations are readily available.
There are many worthy and use-
ful institutions that, although good in
themselves, are not placed in residen-
tial areas: prisons, mental hospitals,
race tracks, football fields, and any-
thing else that brings large crowds,
noise, and the potential problems that
accompany such things.
This is a horse community and, as
most of us know, horses are sensitive
to loud noises. We also enjoy the wild
life that would be frightened away if
this was allowed to happen in our
backyards.
As a member of the 60s genera-
tion, I know that there is always an
element of society that insists on
bringing in alcohol, illegal drugs, and
the behavior engendered by these to
festivals. In sum, I can think of many
reasons not to allow this and confess
myself unable to think of one good
reason for it to be allowed.
I am particularly dismayed by some
of the rude and.ill-mannered remarks
made by some of those who support
this park. Their attitude seems to be,
"I'll come into your home, do what-
ever I like, and you can leave if you


don't like it."
1 have always prided myself on be-
ing a third-generation native Florid-
ian and on the behavior one expects
from Florida's ladies and gentlemen.
I only hope that constructive alterna-
tives will be suggested in thc Iulture
and not the profal'ne comments and
entitled attitudes 1 have seen to date.
Sincerely,
Catherine C. St. Clair

Submitted
When students return to school
next week in the Gilchrist County
Schools, they will find a change with
lunches served in all the schools. As
a result of the Healthy, Hlunger-Free
Kids Act, USDA is making the first
major changes in school meals in 15
years, which will help raise a healthi-
er generation of children.
Throughout the country, school
lunches will be more nutritious.
School districts must comply with
the new federal standards, which
took effect July 1.
The new regulations call for larg-
er servings of fruits and vegetables.
Students will now be required to take
a complete serving up to one cup
- of fruit or vegetables at lunch and
will be encouraged to take more from
a wider-variety of choices, including
dark green and red or orange vegeta-
bles and legumes.
The new standards also limit calo-
ries based on the age of children to
ensure proper portion sizes. The
District will also have to offer more
whole grains, fat-free or 1 percent
milk and reduce the amount of satu-
rated fats and sodium.
The campaign is being called
"Don't 4 Get!" which is a reminder
to the students not to forget to take at
least one fruit or vegetable on their
lunch tray.
In the past few years, parents and
students may have already noticed an
increase in the fresh fruits and veg-


tables along with more salads and
nonfat milk in our schools. One of
the challenges this year will be to in-
corporate cup of legumes into the
menu every week.
Next year, the changes will include
breakfast, but many districts are not
waiting. One of the new require-
ments for breakfast will be adding
whole grain products.

SCHOOL BI

DRESS CODE 4 e
Shoes must be worn by all students at all times except at the
discretion of the teachers. Appropriate shoes must be worn
during physical education classes. Flip-flops or backless san-
dals are not allowed in elementary classes.
* Tops and bottoms (items of clothing) must meet. Clothing shall
be neither loose nor tight fitting to an extent that they reveal
underclothing or inappropriate body areas.
* Headgear, to include, but not limited to hats, caps, hoodies
and sunglasses may be worn on campus but not in the build-
ings.
* Shorts, skirts and dresses should not be more than approxi-
mately five inches above the top of the knee cap when stand-
ing, even when worn over leggings. Holes, rips, tears, etc. with
exposed skin in shorts, pants, skirts etc. shall not be more
than five inches above the knee cap.
* Spaghetti straps/halter tops/strapless tops or tank top shirts

another shirt/sweater. Tops shall not be loose, tight fitting, or
low cut to an extent that they reveal underclothing or inappro-
priate body areas.
* Pajamas shall not be worn (to include fleece bottoms).
* Clothing may not contain words or pictures which are degrad-
ing or distracting. Headgear is included.
* Clothing shall not be worn in a manner that depicts gang sym-
bols or affiliation. (This includes slogans or references to to-
bacco, sex, drugs, alcohol, gangs, cults, racist or sexist ori-
ented sayings or pictures.)
* Belt chains or wallet chains may not be worn on school
grounds.
* Any questionable clothing will be reviewed by the Principal/
designee for a decision regarding appropriateness and parent/
guardian may be called.

STUDENT ATTENDANCE &
One of the best ways to insure a student's success is to insure that
the student is in school everyday! Studies show that poor academic
performance is closely related to a student's daily attendance.
Please review the following attendance-related information:
* If a student is absent, the student must make up the work.
* An excused absence will be granted for personal illness or death
of immediate family, established religious holiday and for emergen-
cies approved by the principal.
* A note must be provided for the absence within three days upon
return to school or the absence will be unexcused.
* Unexcused absences include shopping trips, suspensions, vaca-
tions, truancy, or other avoidable absences.
* Upon the sixth absence; (excused or un excused) in a grading
period, the student shall fail the class unless they pass a mastery
test. A student must have a passing grade in the class before being
eligible to take the mastery test. A zero will be assigned for any
work not made up.
* School related activities are not considered an absence
* Any Family trip must have PRIOR administrative approval for the
absence to be excused.
* Notes will be accepted from parents for five absences for each 18
-week grading period. All absences over five in the 18-week grading
period will require'further documentation. (i.e. medical provider,
religious official, funeral notice, etc.)
* Administration will have the final decision regarding all absences.

CELL PHONE POLICY 4 & 4 a
Students may have a cell phone at school, but It must be off'
and out of sight. The cell phone policy applies to all functions of
the phone to include but not limited to texting, videoing, games,
internet use, downloading music, etc. The cell phone must be off
and out of sight from the time you enter a bus or school campus in
the morning until the last bell rings at the close of the school day or
until you step off the bus in the afternoons. If a student breaks the
new cell phone rule, the student will be asked to hand over the cell
phone immediately and the parent will be contacted and asked to
pick the phone up from administration. Consequences for break-
ing the cell phone policy could result in not being able to bring a
cell phone to school and possible suspension/expulsion.

Students who are in need of parrying an inhaler for asthma or epi-
pen for severe allergic reactions and have been trained in the use
r of these medications MUST have an order of the physician on file in
e the Health Room to be updated yearly. These types of medications
are considered life-saving and need to be available for immediate
use by the student when necessary.

GILCHRIST COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT

Announces its policy for Free and Reduced-Price Meals for students under the


NATIONAL SCHOOL LUNCH AND BREAKFAST PROGRAMS


Any interested person may review a copy of the policy by contacting

Danna Tucker, Director of Food Service, 310 NW 11th Ave., Trenton, FL 32693

Household size and income criteria will be used to determine eligibility. An application can not be approved unless it contains complete eligibility information. Once
approved, meal benefits are good for an entire year. You need not notify the organization of changes in income and household size.

Application forms are being sent to all homes with a letter to parents or guardians. To apply for Free or Reduced-Price Meals, households must complete the application
and return it to the school. Additional copies are available at the principal's office in each school. The information provided on the application will be used for the purpose
of determining eligibility and may be verified at any time during the school year. Applications may be submitted at any time during the year.

Households that receive SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) or TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) are required to list on the application
only the child's name, SNAP/TANF case number, and signature of adult household member.

Foster children will receive free benefits regardless of the child's personal income or the income of the household.

Households with children who are considered migrants, homeless, or runaway should contact the district liaison Patricia Powers at 352-463-3200.

For the purpose of determining household size, deployed service members are considered a part of the household. Families should include the names of the deployed
service members on their application. Report only that portion of the deployed service member's income made available to them or on their behalf to the family.
Additionally, a housing allowance that is part of the Military Housing Privatization Initiative is not to be included as income.

All other households must provide the following information listed on the application:

Total household income listed by gross amount received, type of income (e.g., wages, child support, etc.) and how often the income is received by each household
member;
Names of all household members check the "no income" box if applicable; if household member is a child, list school name for each;
Signature of an adult household member certifying the information provided is correct; and
Social security number of the adult signing the application or the word "NONE" for this household member if he or she does not have a social security number.

'The school should be contacted if a household member becomes unemployed or if the household size changes. Children of parents or guardians who become
unemployed should also contact the school.



Under the provisions of the Free and Reduced-Price meal policy the


Director of Food Service

will review applications and determine eligibility. If a parent or guardian is dissatisfied with the ruling of the official, he or she may wish to discuss the decision with the
determining official on an informal basis. If the parent wishes to make a formal appeal, he or she may make a request either orally or in writing to


Superintendent, 310 NW 11th Ave., Trenton, FL 32693 352-463-3200

Unless indicated otherwise on the application, the information on the Free and Reduced-Price Meal application may be used by the school system in determining eligibility
for other educational programs.

SMuseum. We had several visitors
stop in to visit and have lunch with
us. We had a great visit with you and
hope to see you again. Lilia Rams-
dell also stopped by for a brief visit.
She was active with the group when
they began. She shared a few stories
with us about the earlier days.
The boys from Lancaster were
out during the week. They worked
hard getting the lawn looking great.
Several of the boys were helping in-
side, cleaning the floors and hanging
S quilts on the wall. Next week, we'll
work on the other half of the floor
and move the quillos to another wall.
Quillos are quilts that fold to form a
pillow. Thanks Lancaster.
Summer will be ending soon so
we'll be planning a fall/football dis-
Splay to enjoy. Don't forget we're
open Tuesday thru Saturday from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m. We look forward to
seeing you soon.

95-year-old poll worker


anchors Cruse precinct


By Carrie A. Mizell
Election Day is a very important
occasion for one poll worker, May
M. Hersh, who is 95-years-old and
continues to serve at the Cruse
precinct in north Gilchrist County.
"I don't think the doors would open
up there without her," said Connie
Sanchez, supervisor of elections.
A resident of Gilchrist County
for over 30 years, Mrs. Hersh said
she enjoys seeing her neighbors on
Election Day as they stop by the
Cruse Center to cast a ballot.
"I stay busy as anything," Hersh
Said, of Election Day. "It's a nice day-


that I always look forward to."
When she's not manning the polls
on Election Day, Mrs. Hersh stays
active by working outside in her yard
and shopping. She continues to drive
at the age of 95 and won't consider
life without her car to get her where
she wants to go.
Though women were not allowed
to vote when Mrs. Hersh was
born, women's suffrage changed
everything with the passage of the
19th Amendment, which provided,
"The right of citizens of the United
States to vote shall not be denied or
abridged by the United States or by


any State on account of sex."
At the age of 18, Mrs. Hersh
registered to vote, because as she
said, "We're lucky enough to be able
to vote, everyone should go out and
vote on Election Day."
Mrs. Hersh's late husband, and
just about every man in her family
served in the armed forces, so she
considers herself to be very patriotic.
Her patriotism and passion for voting
propels her to work the polls come
Election Day year after year.
"I'll keep on as long as I'm able!"
Mrs. Hersh said, with a smile and a
laugh.
