that- in, he has decided to move forward
nent with chemotherapy.
ettle "He's just dealing with it," Angie
said.
After hearing the news last
Thursday morning, Corbin attended
a American Cancer Society event in
Chiefland on Thursday night where
he was awarded a "Courage Award"
for his gallant fight with cancer.
In 2011, Corbin was diagnosed with
four different types of cancer at the
age of 17. His pediatrician noticed a
mass during a routine sports physical
'that inevitably led to his diagnosis.
Since then, the community has rallied
around Corbin.
According to Angie, Corbin will
be on the Tigers sidelines during
football season this fall cheering on
his teammates.
Prayers are asked for Corbin and
his family as they continue to fight
cancer.


needed revenue was to raise the city's
water and sewer rate by 7.29 percent
for both residents and businesses.
Commissioner Kinsey asked if
there was money in the upcoming
budget for employee raises.
"Not a penny," Brown responded,
saying that he would not be receiving
a raise this year either.
Commissioner Tim Kinsey said he


was not in favor of cutting services
and Mayor Glen Thigpen said he was
not interested in reducing the hours
that city hall is open.
While Commissioner Arlene Wilks
expressed concern for the citizens on
fixed incomes and then questioned
why they had given the police chief a
recent raise with a lack of funds.
Commissioner Randy Rutter made


a motion and Commissioner Tim Kin-
sey seconded it to increase the water
and sewer rates to 7.29 percent. The
vote was unanimous in favor of the
increase, which will include the usual
yearly increase that comes from the
annual inflation rate, which this year
was 1.4 percent For the past few
years the city has increased the rate
of water and sewer by the amount of


the Consumer Price Index (CPI).
Most of the city's 15 full-time em-
ployees attended the meeting, as they
too, were concerned with the out-
come. The.annual payroll for the city
is just over $485,000.
The next Trenton City Commis-
sion meeting will be held September
11, at 5:30 p.m., at the Trenton Com-

Parks Improvements Task Force...
The Santa Fe River Parks Im-
provements Task Force is a volun-
teer group of Gilchrist County and
other citizens that came together
in 2012 to rescue ard renovate the
Santa Fe River Park located in Gil-
christ County where State Road 47
crosses the river.


\Working with Gilchrist County and
Su%\annee River Water Management
District staff, the Task Force has.
through a series of on- and off-site
meetings, developed an extensive
action list of Park improvement and
development goals.
The Task Force has already com-
pleted various improvements at the
Park; pavilions have been pressure


washed, painted, and a roof is be-
ing replaced. Engineering studies
for a new boat ramp will begin soon,
and a list of entrance and safety im-
provements are being discussed with
FDOT; And that's just the beginning.
The Task Force has a lot more to
share with you. Please visit our Park
Improvements Task Force informa-
tion display that we will have set up


in the south pavilion. We'd like to
show you what we're doing, have
planned and how you can partici-
pate and support this citizen effort.
So come on down to Santa Fe Riv-
er Park on Saturday and join us for
fun and food at the river!

Operation Christmas Child:

Gift recipient will speak at Hardeetown Baptist


By Carrie A. Mizell
In the spirit of giving, it's never too
early to start thinking about Christ-
mas, specifically Operation Christ-
mas Child.
On Saturday, Sept. 15, a Russian
woman will be at Hardeetown Baptist
Church speaking on what it meant to
receive her first wrapped present, a
shoebox through Operation Christ-
mas Child.
Elena Hagemeier's home was
dirty and cold. Her mother and fa-
ther drank all the time and left Elena
and her sister sleeping on beds with
no linens and without food. They did
not attend school until Elena was 8-
years-old and she and her sister were
placed in an orphanage.
A few years later while at her sec-
ond orphanage, Elena and the other
children were brought together for a
special shoe box gift distribution. It
was Elena's first time receiving a gift
that was wrapped. Elena felt loved,
hopeful and worthy. Because she al-
ways had to focus on caring for her
younger sister, receiving a gift some-
one packed just for her made a huge
impact on her life.
The biggest impact that day, how-
ever, was receiving "The Greatest
Gift of All" booklet that told the story


Elena Hagemeier


of Jesus' love for her. She had never
heard about that kind of love before.
In 2004, Elena and her sister were
adopted and moved to the United
States. She now attends Ozark Chris-
tian College and hopes to be a mis-
sionary in Asia one day.
Elena will be at the church from 4
p.m. to 6 p.m. Hardeetown Baptist
Church is located at 1716 NW 14th
Street, in Chiefland.

erts is making up kits to distribute

"Watch your thoughts, they be-

they become your actions. Watch
your actions, they become your hab-

character. Watch your character, it
becomes your destiny."
Frank Outlaw

I feel a little caught between the
seasons right now.
On one hand it is still in the 90s
most days and the mosquitoes are
still plentiful in our yard. On the
other hand, last week Gus and Allie
picked pumpkins from our volunteer
vine out by the compost pile. Also
my mother and I road down to Cedar
Key taking the Fowlers Bluff road
and the leaves on the hardwood trees
have began to turn. Fall?
I need desperately to clean out the
front flower bed and trim the grass
off the sidewalk, but lawdy, it's still
90 degrees. The fascia board around
our house needs painting but it's still
rainy like dog days. I keep thinking
if I put it off just a little longer it will
be fall and the weather will cool and
the rain will stop along about Octo-
ber. Believe I'll wait. Could be I'm a
procrastinator.
I know I'm rushing fall a bit be-
cause it's not officially here until
September 22.
Let's see; on one. hand I have a red
wagon full of pumpkins parked on
the back porch and the fall leaves are
showing up in the hammock, but on
the other hand the heat is still raging
and those skeeters are vicious and I

Dear Editor.
This is in response to the letter
to the editor printed last week with
concerns about Hart Springs. I am
the manager of Hart Springs, and my
experience with the springs began in
the early 1960s.
Whether the changes to the springs
are for better or worse is a personal
opinion, and the letter only alludes
to the time the comparison is made.
If it is from the time of the Boyettes'
management, then using my memory,
I would agree it has changed a lot, but
I refer as much to societal changes as
to the changes to Hart that have oc-
curred over the past half century. If
you refer to 8-10 years ago then you
would have found the bathrooms and
concessions building in an uninvit-
ing and degraded condition. Three to
five years past you would have seen a
boardwalk upheaved by. the flood of
2009, the pedestrian bridge impass-
able and 'barricaded, the pavilion in
need of extensive structural repair
and upgrading, and the gatehouse
deemed unsafe due to mold from sev-
eral previous floods. Other "changes"
include replacing the retaining walls
around the springs because the. old
ones were failing and unsafe. Handi-
cap accessibility to the springs and
restrooms, while not necessary, was a
priority to the Board of County Com-
missioners (BOCC), and has been
well received by those who need it.
Hart Springs is a family-oriented
park owned by Gilchrist County.
While the $4 entry fee is considered
*a great value to a vast majority of our
customers, the BOCC saw the need
for family discounts. They initiated
the $12 per carload for up to 6 people.
As an example a family of 5 would
only cost $12. Also families can pur-
chase an annual pass for $75 which
is good for a year from the date of
purchase. We have over one hundred
families presently taking advantage
of this offer, and they use the springs
extensively.
The past two summers at Hart were
a great success with revenues coming
close, to paying for the operation of
the springs. This summer started with
May and June, comparable to the pre-
vious two summers, and then the un-
thinkable happened.
-On July 4th the springs flooded!
Caused by tropical storm Debby, it
resulted in an elevated risk of E. Coli
bacteria infection forcing us to ban
swimming in the .springs. Justtwo
weeks ago sw~imning was allok\ed,
but alas school'hid started, summer'
break has past, and cloudy ard rainy
,days dampen park.attendance even in
times when the springs are ideal.
Researching back to the early six-
ties, I couldn't find a record of flood-
ing on the' Suwannee River during
the summer. I've discovered over the
past few years many things I assumed
about the springs and river have been
wrong (i.e. The river doesn't flood in
the summer).
I agree it is sad that the summer
of 2012 has been a bust, but I know
those who have wonderful memories
growing up at Hart Springs will bring
their children and grandchildren next
summer to create their own memo-
ries, and they will rank Hart Springs
as the best it ever was.

Character


Council's


Personality of Give unborn children


the Month
By: Geneva Cornwell
As we close out the summer of
2012 it is with typical fanfare that
we give the last of the leadership per-
spectives a grand ovation!
The Organizer: a person who vi-
sualizes final results and directs re-
sources for the successful completion
of goals; we all know one. Someone
who consistently just knows how to
put things together, and with ease.
One who has a knack for getting
things done. One who has that special.
talent for putting all the parts, or the
people, together, and moving things
along. Oh! Those systematized peo-
ple, who just take over, and, in the
end, produce results which can be
considered to be a united action to
one end. Wow! What a talent! There-
in is the life of the person who is an
organizer; mostly born into it, but
sometimes the training helps too!
So with all those superlatives, it
is with pleasure that the Character
Council introduces the personality of
the month, Mrs. Shirley Fusco.
She appeared on the Florida scene
from Indiana in 1972, and has lived
in Gilchrist, as her county of choice,
since 1996.
Rusco is a registered nurse and
currently teaches CNA classes at
the Levy County Campus of Central
Florida Community College.
She is also very active in her
church and is involved in the "Food
Outreach" every Thursday..
Each week, she also takes care, of
the composing, printing, and folding
of the church bulletin.
When asked why she thinks that
being an organizer is important in
her life, her response, "I really[ .do
not know. I've always been that way.
It's just a gifting from God. I've al-
ways loved to have things neat and
in place. That's just the way I am! If
I see something which needs to be
done, I simply do it, without being
asked!"
When asked how she would like to
encourage others in being organize,
she replied, "To be organized is to
be structured and with organization a
person can get so many more things
done."
She tells her students, "God
knows each one of us, and He made
us through His wonderful creative
power. He expects us to use our time
wisely and also to be organized with
it so others, as well as God, will be
pleased."
Fusco claims Psalms 139 as. her

"They laid Abigail on my belly
after she was born, and I could hear
her cry. I thought to myself, 'She's
crying. She's alive. She's not dead',"
said young mother Suzannah How-
ell.
SDuring Suzannah's 35th-wveek ill,,
trasound, she and her husband Chase
learned their baby would be born,
with Congenital Diaphragmatic Her-
nia (CDH). This birth defect meant
the baby had a hole in the left side of
her diaphragm, so her bowel, spleen
and kidney were in her chest, pushing
her heart to the right side, compress-
ing her left lung. '
Suzannah traveled to Shands Hos-
pital for Children at UF (nearly a
two-hour commute) once a week for
a one-hour ultrasound and EKG until
delivery day. On November 21, 2011,
the doctors induced labor and gave
Suzannah steroids to strengthen the
baby's lungs. After two pushes, baby
Abigail was born and quickly taken
to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit
(NICU) where she was intubated:.
Two days later, Abigail was stable
enough for surgery to reorganize
her organs and cover the hole in her
diaphragm with a Gortex patch. The
surgery was performed by world-re-
nowned CDH specialist and Shands
pediatrics' surgeon, Dr. David Kays.
The family spoke highlyof Dr.
Kays and histeam at Shands. "I think
it's great what they do at Shands. Dr.


Kays is amazing," Suzannah said.;
She also mentioned Dr. Kays was,
available anytime the family needed'
him. "He will respond to a call or
e-mail even when he's on vacation.d
That's what kind of person he is and'
is what makes him so successful."
*,Chase and Suzannah were for-4
tunate to be close to Shands and to
'have heard of Dr. Kays. The survival
rate of CDH babies in his care is 92:
percent compared to the Nation's 50-':
60 percent survival rate. "I've read,
where many doctors at other hospi-,
tals will tell mothers expecting CDHI
babies to abort. Dr. Kays gives every
child a chance. He doesn't give up on'
any of them," Suzannah said.
It is stories like-the Howell Fami-,
ly's that make us realize every child'
deserves a fighting chance, but not'
all are given one. Luckily, Shands
Hospital for Children at UF and the,
Children's Miracle Network are able'
to provide that fighting chance.
On September 20, the 18th An-
nual Tommy Usher Log-A-Load fo,
Kids Golf Classic, held at the Chief-i
land Golf & Country Club, will raise
money for the Children's Miracle,
Network. These funds will be direct-,

Faith Still Comes By Hearing
(Kent Heaton)


The basic principle of a relationship with God is faith. In
Hebrews 11:6 the writer describes the need for faith to be
pleasing to God and without faith there is no pleasing Him.
Three elements of this faith are outlined: faith is the
knowledge that'God is and faith is the hope that through
the knowledge of God comes a promise of reward. The
third part of faith is found when the person seeks Him.
Without these three elements faith is dead. The challenge is
how man views the pursuit of faith and what the basis of
his faith in God is. Often man is satisfied to have a faith in
God apart from knowing Him and not actively seeking
Him. This kind of faith will only be a dead faith.
Paul describes the first knowledge of God as the
"invisible attributes ... clearly seen, being understood by
the things that are made, even His eternal power and
Godhead, so that they are without excuse" (Romans
1:20). Faith does not come from this kind of knowledge
because God is still unknown. An understanding of God in
His fullest sense only comes from the mind of God
revealed to man. "God, who at various times and in
various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the
prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son"
(Hebrews 1:1-2). Through the word of God man will be
able to know the character of God and this is where faith
will come.
To the church at Rome, Paul said, "So then faith comes
by hearing, and hearing by the word of God" (Romans
10:17). Hearing the word of God will fulfill all three of the
requirements of Hebrews 11:6. The knowledge of who God
is begins in Genesis 1:1 and remains the constant theme
until Revelation 22:21. His personality is painted
throughout the generations of man in His goodness and


severity (Romans 11:22). Without the written word man
would have no knowledge of who God is.
Found also within the pages of the Bible is the promise of
God to reward the faithful. The grace of God was planted in
Genesis 3 and fulfilled in the redemption through the blood
of Christ on Calvary. He rewarded the faithful and punished
the unfaithful. Reading the scriptures and hearing the
message of the word of God instills faith in the heart that as
God spoke in the long ago He will speak the same promise
today.
The psalmist declared, "Blessed are the undefiled in the
way, wh'o walk in the law of the Lord! Blessed are those
who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with the whole
heart" (Psalms 119:1-2). Being faithful to the Lord is to
walk in the law and seek the Lord with the heart. One
Cannot know how to walk in the law unless they read and
understand the law. The heart cannot seek what it does not
want to know. Without time spent in the meditation and
Study of the word of God, faith will die.
When people struggle in their lives to overcome sin the
symptom can be found in the lack of "hearing the word of
God." Weakened faith is found in those who nibble at the
manna of God's word. Knowledge is power and without the
sword of the Spirit which is the word of God you might as
well be fighting Satan with a toothpick. Faith still comes by
hearing and that hearing must be by the word of God.
Coupled with prayer (Ephesians 6:18) Satan will never win.
Faithless people are not people of the book. Faithful people
are people of the book who love the law of God. "Oh, how
I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day" (Psalms
1 9:97). Now that is faithfulness!

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


Page Three


If elected, how will you, as Sheriff,
and your administration provide
better law enforcement in Gilchrist
County?
I will be a hands on working Sher-
iff; I will have insights for what's
going on in the department and the
county so I will know first hand the
strengths and weaknesses. I plan
on holding town meetings with the
public to get input on concerns and
issues. I will also provide advanced
training, and we will partner and
work with surrounding counties and
agencies to provide more proactive
law enforcement for the citizens of
Gilchrist County.

List in order of importance your
priorities if elected Sheriff.
Priorities: Constitutional Rights of
Citizens. Public Safety & Protection.
Homicides. Violent Crimes. Thefts.
Drugs. Traffic Enforcement.
, The job of sheriff carries many du-
ties and a lot of these specific duties
are interrelated. My first priority will
be to the protections and preservation
of the constitutional rights of the citi-
zens. I will work toward ensuring the
public safety and protection from ho-
micides, violent crimes, theft, drugs,
and followed by traffic enforcement.

Will you make solving the Junior
Kelly homicide a priority if elected
Sheriff? How will you go about
solving this crime?
The Junior Kelly homicide will be
a high priority as well as the other
unsolved homicide. I will be utilizing.
all available resources partnering up
with state and federal agencies to as-
sist with resolving these cases.

After taking office, what will be the
first thing you do?
Upon taking office I will evaluate
all aspects of the Sheriff's office and
meet with all employees. After eval-
uating, I will make adjustments as
heeded to make the department run
efficiently for the protection of all
citizens of Gilchrist County.


Will the current law enforcement
budget allow you to make changes
within the Sheriff's Office? If so,
how will you re-organize under the
current budget?
Yes, the current budget will allow
me to make changes as needed at the
Sheriff's Office. I will be evaluating
everything on an individual basis. I
will be able to make organizational
decisions after taking office as Sher-
iff.
There are two things I can say that
I will do. One is to have only one ma-
jor position; under the current struc-
ture there are two major slots open. I
will only fill one. The second thing
I will do is to create an agricultural
deputy/investigator position to work'
directly with farmers on agricultural
crimes.
Get to know the

candidates will

continue
As in years past, the Gilchrist
County Journal will not be endors-
ing any candidates for public office.
We will, however, feature question
and answer information on each can-
didate in every local race leading up
to the General Election on' Nov. 6, so
that voters can get to know the candi-
dates before going to the polls.


If elected, how will you, as Sheriff,
and your administration provide
better law enforcement in Gilchrist
County?
Professionalism, consistency, ac-
countability, training and strong
leadership is key to providing the
highest level of law enforcement ser-
vices as possible. If elected Sheriff,
employees for the Sheriff's Office
will be expected to be professional
in all circumstances and at all times.
When a citizen has interaction with
any employee of the Sheriff's Of-
fice, they will be treated with cour-
tesy, objectivity and professionalism.
We will be consistent with how we
treat citizens and how we operate and
perform each of our duties. Citizens
have every right and expectation to
know that the same quality of ser-
vice and treatment they receive will-
be no different than any other citizen.
Sheriff's Office employees will have
-a firm understanding of what is ex-
pected of them, and all of us will be
held accountable for our actions on
and off duty. Being a law enforce-
ment officer is a 24/7 responsibility.
Sheriff's Office employees must and
will be held to a higher standard of
conduct. I will immediately put into
place initiatives that will guarantee
better communication between com-
munities, citizens, victims and law
enforcement. If a phone call is made
to the Sheriff's Office, a phone call
will be answered or returned. As
your Sheriff, I will be accessible and
responsive to the citizens to the best
of my ability. Training is essential for
any agency, and all resources will be
utilized inside and outside the county,
to give employees training opportu-
nities. A viable Reserve program for
Patrol and Investigations is a must,
as well as enhancing our volunteer
program by utilizing their talents in
different programs throughout the
Sheriff's Office.

List in the order of importance
your priorities if elected Sheriff.
1) Enhancing the overall efficiency
of the Sheriff's Office.
2) Aggressive Narcotics Enforce-
ment
3) Addressing Investigation/Patrol
issues. (Such as unsolved cases, re-
sponse times to calls, proactive and
reactive strategies concerning agri-
culture crimes, burglaries, etc..)
4) Communication wi(h victims of
crimes.
5) Working with school adminis-
trators to provide a safe and drug-
free learning environment for our
children, and providing programs to
our children through school on safe-
ty, awareness, and consequences of
committing crimes.
6) Stronger Community Relations
7) Traffic related issues with em-
phasis on D.U.I (Driving Under the
Influence)
8) Utilizing Law Enforcement Re-
serves/and volunteers
9) Restoring good working rela-
tionships with other local, state and
federal agencies.

agencies to include, EOC, EMS, Fire,
Veteran Services, etc.

Will you make solving the Junior
Kelly homicide a priority, if elected
Sheriff? How will you go about
solving this crime?
The homicide of Mr. Kelly is a
concern to nearly every citizen, as
well as to me. I have experience
working and solving numerous types
of criminal investigations to include
homicides. Because of this experi-
ence, I know that by explaining in de-
tail any steps we would take in order
to solve the case could hinder future
investigations. But I can assure the
citizens that a complete and aggres-
sive review of the case will be con-
ducted. I will not make bold promises
of the outcome of the investigation,
but I can and will say this, "To the
person or persons who were involved
in the murder of Mr. Kelly, make no
mistake about it, we will do anything
and everything in our power; use any
and all resources at our disposal to
bring this case to a successful con-
clusion. It will not be cast to the side
for any reason, no matter how much
time passes. My resolve in this matter
is unshakable."

After taking office, what will be the
first thing you do?
I will make sure that all employ-
ees have an understanding of what
their duties are and what is expected
of them..We will encourage the "one
team, one mission" concept in order to
provide effective and efficient service
for the citizens of Gilchrist County. I
will immediately implement policies
that requires investigators to go to

all residential and business burglar-
ies, along with certain other crimes.
1 will also implement case tracking/
management procedures that will
make it mandatory for investiga-
tors to communicate with victims of
crimes. We will review and revamp
all policies and procedures in all divi-
sions. We will use interactive social
media outlets, and an email system to
give citizens daily information on ar-
rests, crimes, and other information.
Within the first few months of taking
office, I would institute a community
outreach board, with representatives
being picked from businesses, com-
munities, churches, organizations,
etc. This board would serve as an-
other way of bridging the communi-
cation gap between the citizens and
Sheriff's Office. I will also add an ad-
ditional resource deputy to the school
system. I will implement a voluntary
farm identification system. This will
allow the Sheriff's Office to.be pro-
active in reducing crime, as well as
helping when investigators need to
be reactive to a crime. I would en-
hance a program that allows citizens
or their family members to register
elderly or home-bound citizens for
nightly well-being calls and checks
when needed. These are a few of the
things I will seek to do in the first 6
months of office. It is important to
note that all of these things will be at
little or no additional expense.

Will the current law enforcement
budget allow you to make changes
within the Sheriff's Office? If so,
how will you re-organize under the
current budget?
In these tough economic times, the
budget will always be a concern. The
current Sheriff's Office budget would
allow me to make any changes that
are needed after an evaluation and as-
sessment period is completed. I will
ensure that all personnel are used and
placed into positions where they can
achieve their maximum potential.

Macri announces candidacy for Levy County


Commissioner District 3


Hello, my name is Al Macri and
I am asking for your vote and sup-
port as I am running for Levy County
Commissioner District 3, which is
being vacated by Marsha Drew. I am
57 years old and came to Levy Coun-
ty from Palm Beach County in 1981.
I live in Morriston with my wife Et-
ter Brooks Macri, who was born in
Montbrook.
Before coming to Levy County, I
owned my own business and worked
for a major electronics service com-
pany in south Florida, and was a
reserve police officer in Broward
County for about two years. Then
I decided to find a place to move. I
had Thoroughbred horses so I came
to Levy County outside of Williston
and purchased property for a horse
farm in 1981 which I have since sold
and still operate my other businesses
of electronics service, and liquidation
business.
I have served the community in
the past as a Williston volunteer fire-
fighter for 14 years, and as a member
of the Williston Jaycees, Williston
Chamber of Commerce, Williston Li-
ons Club, anda former board member
of Wildlife Rescue of Levy County.
I was appointed to the Levy Coun-
ty Board of Adjustment in 2004 and


Al Macri
resigned in 2008 as I ran for Levy
County Commission.
I have served in the Air Force and
have an honorable discharge from the
Air Force and Air Force Reserve.
On a personal level, in my spare
time I enjoy the outdoors, fish-
ing, hunting, going to auctions, and
spending time with my family and at-
tending church.
Over the years in Levy County, I
have donated my services and goods
to civic groups, churches, schools,
fire departments, in the Williston,
Morriston, Bronson, and Trenton

TES Pre-K recently participated in a Safari Scavenger Hunt

Trenton Elementary Pre-K participates in

Safari Scavenger Hunt

TES Pre-K students participated in a Safari Scavenger Hunt to learn important locations around campus. At
each location the Pre-K students were eager to find ajungle animal and learn some fun facts about the animal they
found through their binoculars. TES Pre-K looks forward to another great year!


We're looking forward to an ex-
citing, fresh year in JROTC at Bell
High School. Currently our program
has grown to 72 cadets with 30 join-
ing the program this year.
Over the summer, the Bulldog
Battalion participated in numerous
events such as the Flag Day cer-
emony in mid June, team practices,
staff calls, the formation of an Honor
Guard and Saber Team and others.
Amongst these activities was the
JROTC Junior Cadet Leadership
:Camp fully funded by the JROTC
:program at the Boy Scouts of Amer-
:ica camp in Melrose, Camp Shands.
;Nine of our cadets joined with over
-three hundred other cadets from
:around the North Florida area with
:one general idea in mind, the building
:of leadership skills and confidence.
Cadets had to endure heated con-
:ditions, work with people they'd
:never met before and face their fears.
'Events included an obstacle course
'designed to build confidence, a 60
:foot rappel tower that would force
:you to face your fears head on, an
'electronics class, marching in formal


formations, zip line, compass course,
survival training and several varia-
tions of leadership labs (activities
that require you to work with your
teammates in order to accomplish a
goal) and countless others.
We have many new faces taking ini-
tiative in their new leadership roles.
The Battalion Commander is Cadet
Lieutenant Colonel Nikki Bolender,
Cadet Command Sergeant Major
Garrett Brady, and Executive Offi-
cer Cadet Major Matthew Krienbihl.
The Staff consists of Cadet Captain
Kassidy Renick, Personnel Officer;
Cadet Captain Aaron Mauzey, Se-
curity/Safety Officer; Cadet Captain
Kirstin Cunningham, Operations Of-
ficer; Cadet Captain Aleena Porta,
Supply Officer; Cadet Captain Ryan
Cumbie, Public Affairs Officer; and
Cadet Major Kyle Birchfield, Special
Projects Officer. The individual unit
commanders are Alpha Company,
Cadet Captain Russel Manz; and

lian Carter.

Animal Rescue

Friends (ARF)

News
It's been some time since ARF has
submitted news of our activities, but
we're doing so now because we need
Gilchrist County residents' generos-
ity and compassion to assist our 501
(c) 3,to continue with our mission of
rescuing and finding homes for un-
wanted dogs and cats.
The majority of our animals come
from the animal shelter in Bell. Un-
fortunately, many people fail to spay
or neuter their pets and those pets and
their offspring end up at the shelter
where they face possible euthanasia
if not taken in by a rescue group.
ARF presently has 21 felines (10
kittens and 11 adults), and two dogs
in foster care that are in need of for-
ever homes. All animals have been
spayed or neutered and are up-to-date
on their immunizations. ARF is ada-
mant about the practice of de-claw-
ing felines and adopters must sign
a contract stating that they will not
subject an ARF feline to this amputa-
tion procedure.
An ARF volunteer is at the Petco
store off Newberry Rd. every Sat-
urday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and
Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. with
either kittens or adult cats. If you
would like more information please
call Stacey for dogs (352) 538-7470
or Rosemary for felines (352) 472-
5483.
Of course we always need financial
help so if you're unable to adopt, but
are able to make a contribution to-
wards vet bills, food, or litter please
send what you can to ARF, 24587
NW 199th Lane, High Springs, FL
32643. A receipt will be mailed by
our Secretary/Treasurer and contri-
butions are tax deductible because
we are a non-profit charity.
If you have recently lost a cat or
dog, please be sure to call Animal
Services (352) 463-4084 and provide
a description of your animal. Tim-
ing is very important because stray
animals are only held for one week
before they are released to a rescue,
adopted from the shelter, or eutha-
nized.
Please open your hearts to these
wonderful, needy animals. They
didn't ask to be where they are and
they need your help.
Thank you from the ARF volun-
teers!


H heart Matters
By Angie Land


In this politically charged season,
much is said, many promises made,
and insinuations are flying. Telling
the truth seems to be little more than
a well-worn phrase in a speech. On
the other hand, deception is used as
a "means to an end" and often not
taken seriously as a sin. However,
according to the Bible, deception
is incredibly dangerous. Proverbs
26:19 addresses this problem: "Like
a madman shooting deadly arrows is
a man who deceives his neighbor and
says, "I was only joking!" The Mes-
sage Bible gives us a contemporary
look at this same verse: "People who
shrug off deliberate deceptions say,
"I didn't mean it, I was only joking,"
are worse than careless campers who
walk away from smoldering camp-
fires." In the political world, the sta-
tus quo is to simply blame someone
else for the resulting forest fire. The
point made is that deception causes
everyone to get burned!
The definition for deceive is to lie;
to cause others to accept that which
is false as true or valid, while "de-
ceitful" implies the intent to mislead
by a false appearance or double-deal-
ing. Leading others to believe you
are something you're not, or that
you will do something you have no
intention of doing qualifies as deceit.
It is very interesting that the original
Greek word for deceit actually means
"trap". In this context, have you ever
felt as though you were "trapped"
by someone else's lie? Left holding
the bag by someone you thought you
could trust? Or maybe you were the
one laying the trap to protect your-
self or just to get what you wanted.
The problem is that while practicing
deceit may get you off the "hot seat"
immediately, or let you have your
way, Psalm 7:15 warns us that "He
who digs a hole and scoops it out
falls into the pit he has made."
The Bible records several instanc-
es of deceivers being caught up in a
trap of deception. The 27th chapter
of Genesis tells one such story of Ja-
cob deceiving his father, by pretend-
ing to be his older brother in order
to gain the firstborn's portion of in-
heritance...and it worked. He must
have felt quite clever. Fast-forward
to chapter 29, and we find the shoe
on the other foot. Jacob's future fa-
ther-in-law deceived him into work-
ing seven years for his daughter's
hand only to find after the ceremony
that it was the wrong woman wearing
that wedding dress! Jacob now knew
what it felt like to be on the receiving
end of deception...he fell into that pit
he scooped out with his own hands!


Practicing deception is wrong be-
cause it contradicts the very nature of
God. God is truth. By its own defini-
tion, deceit lays a trap, but the Bible
tells us that the truth will set us free.
(John 8:32) Not only are we called
to speak the truth, we are also called
to be strong enough to hear it. Let's
require honesty from those we elect
to any office, and not fall into the trap
of desiring easy answers to difficult
problems... because our hearts mat-
ter!
Blessings, Angie

Seventh Annual Community Character Forum


Written by Geneva Cornwell
With the near culmination of
the Character Council's tenth year
since its founding, the organization
recently held its seventh annual
Community Character Forum. De-
spite the threat of heavy rains from
the outer bands of Hurricane Isaac.
the area was spared, and the turnout
of attendees was wonderful.
As always, the Council mem-
bers prepared a scrumptious din-
ner for everyone. This time it was
beef Stroganoff, with all the extras,
including homemade banana pud-
ding and chocolate chip cookies.
The meal was served to political
candidates who attended and those
who presently hold office as well as
honored guests.
Several speakers were introduced
by President, Pete Randolph. The
first was 1st Sgt. Jon Meinholz who
spoke on the character and values
taught to the JROTC cadets at Bell
High School. Then Command-
er Dona Lore, of the U.S. Coast
Guard, (sister to Council photog-
rapher, Cheryl Etheridge) shared
about the essence of character in her
line of work. Followed by Joshua
Akin, son of Council member, Lor-
rie Akin, gave a talk on how good
character is demonstrated by teach-
ing 4-H members who are a part of
SWAT (Students Working Against
Tobacco) about staying off of to-
bacco and tobacco products, since:
abstinence from these products al-
lows a person to demonstrate good
character.
The guest speaker for the evening
was Mr. David Melvin, owner of
Melvin Engineering Inc. in Mari-
anna. Mr. Melvin is the founder and
president of the Character Council
of Florida. Melvin mentioned that
it had been nine years since he had
last come to Gilchrist County. He
mentioned that he had taken the
time to glance through the Coun-
cil albums and saw for himself the


tions.
All adults wishing to help individ-
ual clubs or specific activities are en-
couraged to attend and see what each
club has to offer.
For more information please call
486-5131.


Mr. David Melvin was the guest speaker for the evening.


remarkable job the Council has been
doing in the county.
Melvin introduced his family and
wife, Patty. He then gave an informa-
tive talk while explaining the details
of certain character traits as listed
in the character pocket guide. Dur-
ing his talk, he was accompanied by
two of his eight children, Dillon and
Gabrielle. They demonstrated with a
short skit the reason it is important to


stay under an "umbrella" of protec-
tion, regarding authority, regardless
of what area of life any one person
finds oneself.
The forum was a memorable oc-
casion and ended with the special
thought that many are looking for-
ward to what the next ten years will
bring in understanding that truly,
"character determines success."

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Aug. 30, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. We had a many of
the regular members back with us as
vacations are over and children (and
grandchildren) are back in school. It
was great to catch up with the oth-
ers have been doing for the summer.
It's getting time to,plan our winter
activities the annual quilt show,
the bus trip to the State Fair and the
many other things we have done in
the past.
Pam brought in a large stack of fat
quarters to donate to the Museum. In
the next few weeks, we will be work-.
ing on making a Take 20 quilt using
20 fat quarters. We'll be cutting
the fat quarters into the squares and


shapes needed for the pattern. Call
us if you're interested in more infor-
mation on this free class.
Gregg and the boys were out during
the week. The rain has let up enough
for us to finish the floor in the main
room. The floor has a nice bright
look which makes the whole room
look so much better. Maybe we can
get the other rooms done in the next
few weeks. Thanks Lancaster.
Come out and visit with us some-
time. Thursday is our regular meet-
ing day and pot luck. We're very
happy to show off all the work we've
done since February. The rocking
chairs are waiting and need a work-
out.

LOG CABIN QUILTERS


This Crazy Quilt is a great example of the Crazy Quilts that became
popular around 1876 until about 1910. Crazy Quilts are made with
odd shapes offabric and decorative stitches and embroidery work. Of-
ten, rick rack and ribbon were used. Traditionally, spiders, spider
webs or dragonflies are embroidered on the quilt. The quilts were
made with velvets, silks, brocades or cotton.

It looks like the cattle market is
still holding strong. It seemed as
though everything was a little higher
compared to last week. As a whole, I
believe that we had the best group of
yearlings we've had all year. Rockin
H Ranch of Williston topped the calf
market with a high of $2.875 bought
by Terry Bomhak. Henry Vanzanr of
Yulee topped the Replacement Cow
market with a high of $1.20. Suwan-
nee Dairy of McAlpin topped the
Slaughter Cow market with a high
of $.945 bought by Central Beef: El-
wood Clyatt of Chiefland topped the
Replacement Bull market with a high
of $1.18 and Sunshine Cattle of Cal-
lahan toped the Slaughter Bull mar-
ket with a high of $1.065 bought by
Dairymen's Marketing Service.
Please feel free to check out our

buyers for yet another good week.

Florida Master Gardeners


By Jolene Dixon
Nature Coast Master Gardeners
(NCMGs) from Levy, Dixie and
Gilchrist counties joined Extension
Agents, specialists and Florida Mas-
ter Gardeners across the state to hear
about the latest research findings
related to Florida Friendly Land-
scaping (FFL). Participants met in
Citra to discuss Turf-Grass Breed-
ing, Disease Sampling, Design, Soil
Moisture Sensors and Leaching Nu-
trients, and that was just the morning
session. When asked what was most
meaningful about the day-long pro-
gram, Headley commented "proper
[nutrient] amount and timing to be
the most beneficial. I found the turf
disease talk very informative; know-
ing now what to look for and treat"
Goodman candidly shared "...
samples of what actually leached
out of the soils really brought it all
together... being able to see the evi-
dence is important to me. I will use
information from the class when
speaking with others and in my own
lawn" also "[options] for turf grass."
With the focus being the nine FFL


principles that Master Gardeners pro-
mote with homeowners as part of the
Florida Yards and Neighborhoods
"12 in 2012" program sponsored
by the UF Environmental Horticul-
ture Department, NCMGs conduct
free yard visits on a first come, first
served basis. Trained volunteers will
share. research-based information
about irrigation, disease and pest
control, and plant selection, and may
suggest landscape options specific
to your lawn and garden. These may
include ideas for saving time and,
money in the garden with a focus on-
plant selection and arrangement to
produce aesthetically pleasing home
landscapes.
SNCMG are using all of the tools in
the 'garden shed' to assist area.hom-
eowners. During 2012 NCMGs plan
to perform twelve hoineowner visits
in each locality in the tri-county area.I
This FREE program is for residents
of Levy, Gilchrist and Dixie coun-
ties. Call the Levy County Extension
office at (352) 486-5131 to schedule

Payment in Lieu of
Taxes to Counties
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District (District) will de-
liver a total of $346,103.52 to 11
counties as Payment in Lieu of Taxes
(PILT) this year.
The PILT program' was. created by
the Florida Legislature to help reduce
the fiscal impact to rural counties
when, the State or District acquires
lands. Since land owned by the Dis-
trict is tax-exempt, PILT funds off-
set the loss of tax revenue when the
District purchases property for flood
control, water quality, water sup-
ply and natural resource protection.
The District will pay PILT -funds to
counties until their populations reach
150,000.
The PILT funding comes from the
Legislature, enabling the District to
make payments to its rural counties.
: "The District is grateful to our Leg-
islative. Delegation for their support
in securing the funding that allows us
to distribute the PILT checks to our
communities," said Districi Execu-
tive Director Ann Shornelle.
The following are totals that each'
county is scheduled':to receive are,
Bradford, $15,416.77; Columbia,
$40,100.89; Dixie, $21,647.39;
Gilchrist, $44,392.72; Hamilton,

Shepard Arrested for

Grand Theft


4-H News
September 1 starts a brand new 4-
H year and young people in Gilchrist
County between the ages of 5-18
years old are welcome and encour-
aged to join a local 4-H Club. 4-H
is the nation's largest youth devel-
opment organization. Over 230,000
members in the State of Florida help
to make up the community of more
than 6.5 million young people across
America. 4-H is a non-formal, prac-
tical educational program for youth.
Florida 4-H is the youth development
program of Florida Cooperative Ex-
tension, a part of the University of
Florida Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences. The four "H"'s stand
for Head, Heart, Hands, and Health,
and caring adult volunteers and lead-
ers strive to help young people de-
velop life skills in these areas as they
successfully complete 4-H projects
and activities. There is no charge to
join 4-H and all youth are welcome
regardless of color, creed, nationality,
race, religion, handicap, or gender.
There are currently fifteen 4-H
clubs in Gilchrist County to choose
from, and new clubs are forming
from time to time. All that is neces-
sary to start a new 4-H Club is five
youth and at least one adult volun-
teer who is willing to go through the
screening and training necessary to
lead a 4-H club. All of our volunteers
are screened and trained to work with
4-H youth as safety and a positive ex-
'perience for youth are imperative for
our program. Adult volunteers are
also welcome to judge record books,
assist with day camps, and share sub-
ject matter expertise with youth such
as sewing, cooking, woodworking,
small engine repair, animal husband-
ry, horticulture, bee keeping, or other
interesting skills.
Young people in 4-H have over 100
project areas to choose from as well
as' other educational opportunities,
trips, contests and camps that sup-
port the projects., Most of the clubs
in Gilchrist County are community
4-H clubs that have club members
completing a variety of projects, but
there are some project specific' clubs
that focus on sewing, shooting sports,
learning to play guitar, and tobacco
prevention and education for youth.
Here is a list of our current clubs
with a brief description of that club:
Buckaroos 4-H Club: A club of
primarily younger 4-H members who
focus on rabbit and poultry projects,
.Busy Bees 4-H Club: A club that
focuses primarily on sewing and
cooking, and sometimes crafts. This
club meets in Trenton every other
Saturday.
Flatwoods Friends 4-H Club: A
cpmmunitycb, jhat.,p Plly.,lme.ets
in Trenton one night a month whose
members do a variety of projects in-
cluding swine, beef, poultry, rabbits,
gardening, hog and ham, and public
speaking.
Gator Country 4-H Club: Another
community club that meets in the
eastern part of the county. Youth in
this club usually do swine, poultry,
and gardening projects and also focus
on camping.
Guitar 4-H Club: This club meets
Thursday after school at the 4-H
Clubhouse in Trenton. Young people
in this club learn basic guitar with
an emphasis on bluegrass and clas-
sic country music. Members need to
have a guitar to participate.
Lil' Farmers 4-H Club: This club
usually meets one night a month at the
American Legion building between
Trenton and Bell, and youth com-
plete a variety of projects in this club
including gardening, wood working,
swine, beef, poultry and rabbits.
Mossy Oaks 4-H Club: This club
meets monthly at the Osceola voting
house and members turn wood on a
lathe, raise swine and other animal
projects, garden, citizenship projects,
and a host of other projects.
Osceola 4-H Club: One of the old-
est clubs in the county, this commu-
nity club has members in a variety of
projects including swine, dairy, rab-
bits and poultry. This club also meets
at the Osceola voting house.
Riverside Wranglers 4-H Club:
This is a club for students at River-
side Christian School. These youth
love to compete in judging teams and
also complete livestock, sewing and
lots of other projects.
Santa Fe 4-H Club: Another his-
toric club in the county, the club
meets around Bell and youth com-
plete a host of projects including
crafts, livestock, gardening, and pub-
lic speaking.
Shooting Sports 4-H Club: Young
people in this club learn to safely


handle and shoot bows, rifles and
shotguns. These youth often compete
in state competitions for shooting
sports. This club meets every other
Sunday afternoon at the Sheriff's
range between Trenton and Bell.
Spring Ridge 4-H Club: This very
active club has youth in dozens of
project areas and emphasizes service,
leadership and public speaking.
Southern Style 4-H Club: This is
our newest club started just last year
and is off to a fantastic start. This
club has youth enrolled in a variety
of projects including livestock, and
photography.
SWAT 4-H Club: This is a part-
nership between two youth organi-
zations, 4-H and SWAT (Students
Working Against Tobacco).. Young
people in this club learn about the
effects of tobacco on health, how


Submitted
A Trenton man was arrested last
week and charged with grand theft
after an April 2012 incident.
Jerry Derone "Bo" Shepard, 33,
of Trenton, was arrested by Inves-
tigator Tracy Taylor of the Gilchrist
County Sheriff's Office on August
29,2012.
According to a press release is-
sued by the Gilchrist County Sher-
iff's Office, a person called 911 on
April 30, 2012, and reported that
someone had loaded their tractor
on a trailer and was attempting to
leave with it. It was determined that
Shepard reportedly sold the victim's
tractor to.a salvage company with-
out the knowledge of the victim.
The victim reportedly saw his trac-
tor loaded on the trailer andShepard
was at the scene, but fled before po-
lice arrived.


tobacco companies target youth, as
well as leadership, citizenship and
public speaking. This club is open to
youth aged 11-18.
Wilcox 4-H Club: Another histor-
ic club in the county, this club meets
at the Donnie voting house and has
youth who complete beef, swine,
poultry, rabbit, public speaking,
citizenship, and gardening projects
among many others.
It is hoped that one of these clubs
appeals to the young people in your
life and they will join a local 4-H
club. If a young person wants to
join 4-H, or if an adult wants to learn
more about volunteering with the 4-H
program, please call Chris DeCubel-
lis, Gilchrist County 4-H Extension
Agent at (352) 463-3174 or email

Re: Drug Issues
As your sheriff, I will work tirelessly to rid the drugs from your com-

I have been involved in working against drugs for the past 22 years as a
state trooper. Having been a member of the Criminal Investigative
unit, as a felony officer and K-9 Handler, I have worked with many
different task forces over the years from local, to state and to federal. I
have made drug arrests. With my experience and training, I have
extensive knowledge of ways to combat drug issues. The drug issues
have an impact on the theft and burglaries occurring in our community.
I will put my experience to use to fight the drug issues in Gilchrist
County.
