numbers do not show a drastic change
in Trenton's fifth grade population
from one year to the next, despite a
change in location.
Thomas said that School District
officials were expecting a decrease in
enrollment for this school year.
"We projected a decrease of 35

According to the September 2012
enrollment numbers released this
week, there is a decrease of 124 total

The superintendent also pointed
out that Pre-K also complicates the
determination of growth or decline
because this group of students is not
required to attend. However, they do
represent students on campus so they
must be included in the numbers for
comparison as well.
Between now and October, School
District officials will be closely
monitoring enrollment numbers, as
they are subject to change.


County village rates


stays the same in 2012-13


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County
Commissioners approved a
resolution last week setting the
county's millage rate for 2012-13
at 8.2695 mills.
The rate was 2.3 percent less
than the rolled-back rate of 8.4591


mills, which was advertised in Truth
in Millage (TRIM) notices mailed out
to all property owners on August 17.
As Joe Gilliam, clerk of court for
Gilchrist County, pointed out the
county's millage rate has remained
the same for the last several years,
"The county has been operating on


less money each year because'the
millage rate is below the roll-back
rate," Gilliam explained.
Property Appraiser Damon
Leggett has certified the gross
taxable value for operating
purposes within the county at
$580,392,271.


Wonser announces candidacy for


Soil & Water Conservation Board


How will you feel about conserva-
tion when the well runs dry?
Florida is suffering from multiple
conservation failures: draining the
Everglades, development run ram-
pant, over-population, and resultant
stress on all resources, for starters.
So what can be done?
We can start with our own county,
Gilchrist, and challenge everyone
to do their part. Basically that is the
charge of the Soil & Water Conser-
vation Districts across Florida, be-
ing formed as a State, Federal, and
local partnership in 1937 by Florida
Statute. Since that time responsibili-
ties have been shared by five water
management districts, Department of
Environmental Protection (DEP) and
Department of Community Affairs
(DCA).

Supervisor, unpaid, is to add diver-
sity to the current Board: No Fox to
Guard the Hen House.
Florida is in a serious drought since
2006 and many of us are convinced
government is not doing the job of
conserving our resources.
New ideas need exploration and the
backing of the general public. Every-
one needs to measure up to the task
or we risk slime" in what rivers and
springs survive. Wells are running
dry in North Florida and now Cedar
Key has saltwater intrusion.
Some of my earliest memories are
of Eaton County, Michigan on the
family farm, learning to drive trac-
tor or how to saddle May without an
adult to help.
Basically I learned a work ethic
that prevails today: sweat is nothing
to fear. I know farmers must work
with nature to have any chance to
survive for without soil and water
there is no crop.
Our Circle Pine Farm is located on
the eastern edge of the Waccasassa
Flats in northeast Gilchrist on eighty
acres of nearly virgin Longleaf
pine forest. However Laurel Oak
encroached into the stand and is a
challenge to restore. It was accepted
for the Forest Stewardship program
during 2007. Since I got my horses
back in 1975, the trail runs from Ft.
Pierce with the show ring to Gilchrist
county by 1989 and endurance com-
petitions across southeast National
Forests, plus Pennsylvania's Race of
Champions in 1996. My horses have
carried me 5,400 miles of endurance
(i.e. 50 or 100 's) completions includ-
ing twelve hundreds. Three of my


home-bred Arabians earned Thou-
sand Mile Medallions.
Hauling, camping, competing in all
those venues has given me a unique
view of the country.
Members of the American Endur-
ance Ride Conference now compete
on a world-wide stage. The bulk of
my distance ride. career was done
after my 1989 retirement from the
Department of Corrections as a Cor-
rectional Officer I.
Possibly I was the first woman
hired to work with male inmates for
the EEOC had to press the State to in-
terview me back in the mid '70s. Ac-
tually I found it easier to work with
inmates on the Work Release setting
than it was to teach in Broward Coun-
ty schools, my trained profession.
My teaching certificates were
earned from Michigan State Uni-
versity: BS with Honor, in Home
Economics with a minor in Social
Sciences.
Eventually I was more interested
in psychology and earned an MA that
led to teaching emotionally disturbed
children. My teaching experience
carried me from the Copper Coun-
try of upper Michigan, to inner city
Detroit, to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. I
have now voted in Florida for forty
years.
Several of us partnered to protect
the Waccasassa Flats during land use
planning in 1990 and were able to in-
clude some significant conservation
restrictions in the Land Use Element
still holding. PanthetrRun Endurance
was managed several years and fifty
miles of trails I laid out in Osceola
National Forest were marked as per-
manent horse trails.
Speaking of endurance my column
in Florida's Horse & Pony News
was about twenty years. I served
on the first Gilchrist Code Enforce-
ment Board for five years. Also:
Florida Farm Bureau Member, NRA,
Save Our Suwannee, Gilchrist Com-
munity Emergency Response Team
(CERT). I have written or spoke in
public meetings regarding water is-
sues during this current drought.

vember 6 for District 5 Gilchrist Soil

Gilchrist County native receives


Florida Forestry Association's


most coveted award


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Florida Foiestry Association
honored : Gilchrist County native.
Harold Mikell, last week with the
"Distinguished Service Award."
Over the last 60 years, MNikell's
service and leadership has helped
establish Florida's reputation as a
national innovator in all aspects
of forestry, explained Jeff Doran,
executive vice president of the
Florida Forestry Association.
"I know of no other person
possessing the accumulated wisdom
and institutional knowledge that
Harold has about forestry in the state
of Florida," Doran said.
Born and raised in Trenton, Harold
Mikell planted his first trees while
studying forestry in his high school
vocational agriculture class. When he
returned from World War II service
in the Navy Air Corps, Mikell earned
a B.S. degree in forestry from the
University of Florida in 1950, before
joining the Florida Forest Service.
He moved steadily up the ladder,
beginning as Apprentice Forester,
then serving as Information and
Education Forester, District Forester,


Harold A likell


Assistant Chief and then Chief of
Fire Control. In 1970, he became
Assistant Director and in 1987,
Director, a position also known as
State Forester.
Mikell's leadership in fire control
won him a "Bronze Smokey"
award from the USDA Forest
Service, and he served on the Land
Acquisition Selection Committee


that recommended conservation
and recreation land purchases to the
Governor and Cabinet.
After retiring from state
employment, Mikell joined the
Tallahassee office staff of U.S.
Congressman Pete Peterson and later,
Congressman Alien Boyd, advising
both on forestry-related matters
important to Florida.
Mikell said that the highlight of
his career was when, as state forester,
he presided at the planting of the 5
billionth tree seedling in Florida.
That ceremony took place on the
Capitol grounds in Tallahassee in
1990. He proudly noted that before
Florida organized its Forest Service
in 1928. trees were being cut, but
seedlings weren't being planted in
any organized way. It took the state 30
years to celebrate the planting of its 1
billionth seedling in 1958, but in the
next 30 years that number quadrupled:
a remarkable accomplishment that
fueled the state's forestry business.
Mikell continues to live in
Tallahassee with his daughter and
her family, but he does visit Gilchrist
County often to see his friends.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


I love an adventure, most any kind
really intrigues me. Whether it is or-
dering something new off a restaurant
menu or traveling to a new location I
am up for it.
Sometimes I have a little adventure
without even leaving home. Trying
out a new quilt pattern or better yet
a new recipe that I have never tried
before.
Over the weekend I tied on my
apron and tried a new recipe for
something I have never made before.
Homemade egg noodles was the
recipe challenge this time. I've eaten
really good, freshly made noodles
while visiting Ohio and Pennsylva-
nia, but up until-this weekend I had
never made them. Come to think of
it, no one in my family makes home-
made noodles.
As you know I am a Southern girl,
oops Southern grandma (a little long
in the tooth to be considered a girl),
through and through and while we
make a lot of chicken and dumplings
down here, that is about as close to
homemade pasta as most of us ever
come.
In fact we like dumplings so well
we have even been known to spoon
cornmeal dumplings on top of a pot
of mustard greens. It's a fact, we love
a dumplin'.
The Gilchrist County Woman's
Club came out with.a cookbook a year
or so ago and it is filled with some re-
ally good recipes but one recipe for
noodles caught my eye the first time
I read through the cookbook. Oh yes,
I read a cookbook like some people
read novels from cover to cover.


Anyway, Donna Hayes put her
late mother's homemade egg noodles
recipe in the book. May Hofer lived
most of her life in Taylor Ridge, Il-
linois. I am convinced those ladies in
Illinois must be good noodle makers
after testing this recipe.
The noodles turned out very well
and just as soon as it turns cool I plan
to make a big pot of chicken soup us-
ing this recipe for my noodles.
I was surprised at how easy these
egg noodles were to make and how
tasty they were. cooked in a little
chicken broth with a touch of butter
added..Rolling the dough thin was
the most work in the recipe.

3 egg yolks
1 whole egg
3 tablespoons milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
SBeat egg yolks and egg well with
a fork. Add milk and salt, mix well.
Add flour slowly, the dough will be
stiff. Knead well, use-flour on bread
board as needed. Divide dough into 3
parts, roll each as thin as possible on
floured surface. Hang 3 dough sheets
over a cookie pan to dry for about 1
1A hours. Lay dough sheets out flat
and cut into strips as thin as possible
(I cut into about 4 inch strips) then
place handfuls of noodles on cookie
pan to dry further.
Miss May recommended in the rec-
ipe that the noodles can be-frozen for
later or cooked in chicken broth with
as much chicken as you like added to
make chicken and noodles.

Letters to


the Editor

The Democrat Party
Just where has the Democrat Party
gone? The convention held last week
tells the whole story. Their platform
originally made not one reference to
God, not even acknowledging that
our rights come from Him. When
the media backlash was felt they
put a single reference to Him back
in, and the delegates booed. They
booed a statement in the platform
that merely refers to people's God-
given potential. Some of the loudest
applause came when the president of
NARAL (National Abortion Rights
Action League) spoke about defend-
ing abortion "rights". In fact over
the three day convention, 25 speak-
ers spoke about abortion "rights".
The new platform also states that the
Democrat Party fully supports gay
marriage. They call for the passage
of the so-called Respect for Marriage
Act,. which would require the federal
government to recognize same-sex
"marriages." When choosing which
political party best represents your
beliefs, it is all spelled out in the
party platforms which can be found
online or by the chairman of the local
executive committees of either party.
The Democrat Party is no longer the
same party of FDR, Truman, and
JFK. It is a radical party with radical
beliefs. Nothing defines that clearer
than a line that was played during a
video at the convention. The line said
"we all belong, to the government".
I'm sorry, Democrat Party, I do not
belong to the government, the gov-
ernment belongs to me.
David Biddle

Budget Crisis
Dear Editor,
All Americans should be outraged
that the U.S. House and Senate re-
cently chose not to deal with the
current budget crisis by just simply
extending the funding (printing more
money) of our government for anoth-
er six months.
John Boehner and Herry Reid are
both absolutely helpless, hopeless,
and clueless when it comes to exhib-
iting any political qualities of states-
manship, and leadership. They are a
couple of third-rate political hacks,
without the guts to do what's right for
America. Boehner spends most of his
time on the golf course; Reid spends
most of his time .snooping through.
the personal records otf his political
foes.
'Oft: 'N6VNmfier 6th'E, 'Americand
should give Washington a high co-
lonic cleansing. :

Will Irby will

speak at

September

AARP meeting

AARP will hold its regular monthly
meeting on September 18th at 10:30
a.m. at the Lodge at Otter Springs.
It's nice to see that so many candi-
dates, not only come to our meetings,
but also join our Chapter.
This month's guest speaker is Will
Irby, who writes "Will Irby's Florida
Stories" for the Levy County Journal.
I am sure that he will have many in-
teresting tales about our great state.
Every month I ask all the members
to wear their red AARP shirts, but
this month as we kick-off the much
awaited football season, I am asking
everyone (whether you are a 'Nole,
Gator, Bull or 'Cane) to wear your
school colors. If, by chance, you are
not a football fan, the baseball season
is approaching "World Series Time"
and you might want to wear a base-
ball team shirt. Not to be left out,
Florida has three Pro Football Teams:
Jaguars, Buccaneers, and Dolphins,
and there are always the local high
school teams to support. I am looking
forward to seeing a variety of shirts
and colors. Don't disappoint me.
Hospitality Chairlady Faye Shef-
field has called for a "Pot Luck Lun-
cheon". Please bring some of your
favorite dishes to share with the
chapter and guests. As always, we
need drinks and desserts to round out
the meal.
See you at the meeting with CANS
IN HAND.

The Heart Of Man
(Kent Heaton)


There are four types of people in the world and only four.
The large number of people in the world have a similar
heart while many share the common characteristics of a
second heart. The third heart is found by some and the
fourth heart is possessed by few. Four hearts. Four types of
people. One God.
"Therefore hear the parable of the sower: When anyone
hears the word of the kingdom, and does not understand
it, then the wicked one comes and snatches away what
was sown in his.heart This is he who received seed by the
wayside. But he who received the seed on stony places,
this is he who hears the word and immediately receives it
with joy; yet he has no root in himself, but endures only
for a while. For when tribulation or persecution arises
because of the word, immediately he stumbles. Now he
who received seed among the thorns is he who hears the
word, and the cares of this world and the deceitfulness of
riches choke the word, and he becomes unfruitful But he
who received seed on the good ground is he who hears
the word and understands it, who indeed bears fruit and
produces: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty"
(Matthew 13:18-23).
The first heart is the most popular heart of all. It is driven
by the desires of man (I John 2:16) and is not subject to
the law of God (Romans 8:7). Hearts of the wayside are
governed by internal wisdom where man is his own god
and worships himself rather than the Creator (Romans
1:21-25). One of the reasons the wayside heart is desired
by most people is because it is the most fun. There are no
concerns for consequences nor accountability to anyone
but self. This heart is filled with self-indulgence (Romans
1:26-31). Life is about the here and now and death is only


a passing into oblivion.
Hearts from the stony ground have some hope to them but
have no hope of surviving. The innate goodness of man
glimmers for a moment in the joy of finding truth and
embraces the notion that happiness can be found outside the
putridity of the wayside. But the call of the wayside is
strong and having little foundation to resist the wiles of the
flesh fall back into the old habits. Truth was a blessing but
when the opposition from others challenged the lifestyle of
the stony hearts, weakness overtook the mind and defeat
comes. Living for truth requires standing for truth. With
little underpinning lives fall apart and the heart that began
with promise ends without hope.
The third heart has good ground and will produce a crop.
There is great promise in this heart as the truth of God's
love enfolds the lives of these precious souls seeking
Redemption in the blood of Christ. Progress is seen daily in
Their lives as the heart fills with the mind of God. Sprouts of
truth flourish in the rows of life and the bounty of harvest is
but a time away. Yet in the flurry of activity is lost the most
precious treasure of truth and "choked with cares, riches,
and pleasures of life" (Luke 8:14) the heart bears nothing.
What began with promise ends in empty fields of wasted
Lives. Thorns are the painful reminder of a heart filled with
Sthe hollow call of the world.
Jesus said that only few will find eternal life (Matthew
7:13-14). This heart hears, understands and acts. In the
rarified air of devotion this heart is unswerving in its
obedience to the will of the Lord (Matthew 7:21-23). It is
neither the most popular heart nor the easiest heart to
possess (Luke 14:26-27; 1 Peter 4:12-16; 2 Timothy 3:12).

Why do you think you are the
best choice for Superintendent of
Schools in Gilchrist County?
'My professional experience in-
cludes classroom teaching, guidance
counseling, and coordinating our
district-wide Early Childhood Edu-
cation. These professional responsi-
bilities have allowed me to have con-
tinuous student involvement for the
past 15+ years. In addition, I have
budget experience, managing the dis-
trict Early Childhood Education pro-
gram budget directly, as well as serv-
ing on the Executive Board for the
Early Learning Coalition of the Na-
ture Coast that oversees a $12.1 mil-
lion tri-county budget. With over 15
years of experience in the education-
al system, I have a background that
will allow me to provide a positive
influence, perspective, and approach
to teaching the children of Gilchrist
County. I hold a Bachelor's degree in
Elementary Education and Master's
degree in School Counseling PK-12.
I have served as a guidance counsel-
or, implementing educational strate-
gies for students who are struggling,
as well as exploring and expanding
curriculum to ensure that all students
are being challenged. In 2010, I se-
cured a grant for $90,000 which helps
provide educational opportunities for
young children in our district. These
experiences have helped me develop
skills that are necessary to be a strong
educational leader. Condoleezza Rice
said, "We cannot be reluctant to lead,
and we cannot lead from behind." I
will use my experiences and educa-
tion to positively impact our com-
munity while leading our educational
program forward from the strong po-
sition our educational team has built.

Budget cuts are taking a toll on
public education across the state,
where do you see Gilchrist Coun-
ty's public school system 10 years
from now?
We have a strong arm of educators
and support staff in Gilchrist Coun-
ty. Over the past 10 years, we have
outperformed and outworked manly
other school districts while juggling
the challenges of a rural area, high
poverty, and few resources. In the
future, we will continue to have high
quality personnel invested in provid-
ing quality education to the students
of Gilchrist County. This has always
been, and will continue to be, our
greatest asset. It is unreasonable to
expect that we will go through the
iext ten years without the challenge
of the barriers we face today and new
barriers that will come in the future.
However, I know that our school sys-
tem will continue to meet those chal-
lenges head-on due to the dedication
of our teachers, the strength of our
support staff, the commitment of our


parents, and the continuous support
from our community. In addition, we
will seek dollars to expand programs
such as career technical education
that will ensure our students gradu-
ate ready and competitive for the
job market, technical school, or col-
lege. Our students will be proud of
where they come from and confident
that they can realize their dreams and
accomplish their goals. It is impera-
tive that our district articulate agree-
ments to provide career and technical
training that will enable students to
become valuable members and pro-
ductive citizens in our community.
My vision includes utilizing local
industries to help provide students
with the training and experience to
be employable upon graduation. Our
community has so much to offer. As
educators, we need to reach out to the
community to help students be more
prepared for the future.
In 2022 Gilchrist County Schools
will still be recognized state-wide for
outstanding student performance be-
cause our students, parents, teachers,
staff and community work together
to face the challenges/barriers so we
meeting the educational needs of our
students.

If elected, how do you plan to cut
costs within the school district,
while adhering to state mandates?
There will always be issues with
balancing the school district's goals
with available resources. First and
foremost, we must ensure that the
needs of our students are met. In
these tough economic times, it will
be necessary to analyze every expen-
diture, especially those that don't im-
pact our students' safety, welfare or
education. We can delve into more
efficient bus routes with the use of'
sophisticated GPS technology. This
could save the district thousands
of dollars as fuel prices continue to
skyrocket. Our district could explore
the possibility of articulating agree-
ments with surrounding school dis-
tricts to bid out common items such
as health insurance, electronics, and


Christie McElroy (D)


educational tools. These bids would
be addressed using economies of
scale utilizing larger scale purchas-
ing power that could produce savings
on goods as diverse as buses, office
supplies, and computers. All rural
school districts within Florida are
in the same financial dilemma. We
must look for ways to save each dis-
trict's precious resources and share
ideas. In addition, we could offer in-
centives to our talented teachers and
staff as their cost saving ideas are
implemented district wide. I believe
the budget challenge can be met not
only through cost-saving methods,
but also through creatively invest-
ing in strategies to bring in additional
funds. We need to be proactive about
a challenge, not just scrape by hoping
the tides will turn.

There has been a lot of talk within
the county about "the team," if
elected would you lead the school
district with help from a team, or
consider hiring an assistant super-
intendent of schools?
The Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict currently has an assistant su-
perintendent that acts as chairman
of the district administration team
which is made up of an Assistant Su-
perintendent, Director of Secondary
Education, Director of Elementary
Education, and Director of Special
Programs. These team members work
collaboratively within the district, and
advise the Superintendent. While I
do believe in a teani approach, I feel
that every stakeholder should be a
part of that team. The Superinten-
dent's job is to consider input from
all district and school leaders, all
teachers and staff, parents, students,
and community members. Restruc-
turing our district leadership model
currently in place will be necessary
in order to better serve as a resource
for principals and teachers to achieve
the goals within each school. Poli-
cies and procedures must continually
be reviewed to make certain we are
not taxing our teachers, principals,
and staff beyond what is required.
We need to make sure we maintain
quality education without extra work
or assessments that take away from
invaluable student instructional time.
Principals should have more author-
ity to make decisions within the
schools. It is crucial to listen to em-
ployees without fear of repercussions
or ramifications. However, ultimate-
ly, the final decisions must be made
by the Superintendent, because that
is who the public.has chosen to take
that responsibility. A good leader lis-
tens to the needs of those involved
in accomplishing goals and takes re-
sponsibility for the decisions made.

Would you consider consolidating
Trenton and Bell schools?
As the school district's leader, I
would have to consider every possi-


ability. I understand the need to think
outside of the box when it comes
to surviving in a time of crisis. If
elected, my plan would be to educate
myself about all options and alterna-
tives, encourage input from all stake-
holders, and make a decision based
on what is best for our community.
School consolidation is a multi-facet-
ed issue that involves complex risks.
As Superintendent, my ethical dilem-
ma as a steward of public resources
would be to decide if the potential
benefits outweigh the potential risks.
At this time with the current budget
constraints, funding is not available
for new facilities which would make
consolidation fiscally irresponsible,
but I would gladly entertain any in-
put from the community, parents,
district and school leaders, teachers,
and staff.

Tea Party to

hold meeting
This month's Gilchrist County Tea
Party will be devoted to understand-
ing the lengthy voter's ballot and ad-
dressing all of the 11 State of Florida
amendments.
Understanding the ballot,'which is
planned to be two pages long, will
be reviewed by Connie Sanchez, Su-
pervisor of Elections, who will be at
the meeting with a draft of the ballot.
She will be able to answer any ques-
tions the public has on the procedures
for voting November 6th.
The'main focus of the meeting
will be an explanation of all the 11
amendments, pros and cons, and a
vote on the recommendation from
the Tea Party on how to vote on each
one of the amendments. In addition,
Dr. Chris Hall, KrisAnne Hall's hus-
band, will also be part of the panel.
Dr. Hall and Kris have both done re-
search into the amendments. Those
results will be printed on the Novem-
ber 6th "Voter's Guide" that the Tea
Party will print. Representative Keith
Perry will lead the evening's review
with copies of all the amendments,
and a discussion on the purpose of
the amendment followed by a vote on
whether the Tea Party members will
support each amendment.
Mr. Perry will have copies of the
amendments for all those that attend.
Also available will be the suggested
recommendations from other conser-
vative groups and their recommenda-
tions. After each amendment, those
attending will vote on the\ amend-
ment and the results will be published
in the Gilchrist County Tea Party's
Voter's Guide. Charlie Perez, Presi-
dent of the Tea Party, suggested that
voters will need a Voter's Guide this
year, since there are so many issues
on the ballot, from the Presidential
Elections to local elections to all 11
amendments. It's going to be tough
to remember everything, especially
the amendments, and that's why hav-
ing a Voter's Guide will be beneficial
to everyone. Join the Gilchrist Coun-
ty Tea Party Meeting on Sept. 18, 7
p.m., at the Trenton Community Cen-
ter, 214 S.E. 3rd Avenue, Trenton.


Why do you think you are the
best choice for Superintendent of
Schools in Gilchrist County?
As a TEACHER, I was selected
twice by my peers as Teacher of the
Year at my school. As an ASSIS-
TANT PRINCIPAL, I gained valu-
able administrative experience and
helped resolve many student, parent
and employee issues. During the past
6 years as a School Board member I
have taken advantage of the many
training opportunities and have be-
come a STATE CERTIFIED BOARD
MEMBER. I have also been involved
in lobbying in Tallahassee for addi-
tional funding and on educational
issues. I have a proven record over
the past 21 years of being an educa-
tional LEADER in Gilchrist County
Schools. I have a Master's Degree in
Educational Leadership and person-
ally have 3 children in our school
system.

Budget cuts are taking a toll on
public education across the state,,
where do you see Gilchrist Coun-
ty's public school system 10 years
from now?
:There is a delicate balance between
the financial and educational chal-
lenges that must be addressed over
the next 4 years. I am a fiscal con-
servative and believe we must protect
our taxpayers' investment. We must
provide our students with as many
educational opportunities as possible.
We must stay abreast with the latest
technology, virtual education and
vocational programs as the public
school landscape changes. We must
be adamant about not "short-chang-
ing" students who graduate from our
schools.

If elected, how do you plan to cut
costs within the school district,
while adhering to state mandates?
I have lobbied our Legislators the
last several years against implement-
ing any unfunded mandates on our
school District. When cutting costs
I will first analyze all positions that
do not directly have an impact on the
classroom. An additional area that I
think we can cut costs is our energy
and fuel usage.


Bell Christmas Parade

will be December 1


Submitted By Bell Christmas Parade
Committee
Fall has arrived and winter is just
around the corer. The 2012 Bell
Christmas Parade Committee has
been working throughout the sum-
mer to make this an exciting and en-
joyable event for all.
The 2012 Parade Theme is "A
Magical Christmas". So, let your
creativity flow and start making plans
for your parade entry. We encourage
all local businesses, organizations,
families, and individuals to partici-
pate.


The Town of Bell Lighting Cel-
ebration will be held on Friday, Nov.
30 at 6 p.m., and the parade will be
held on Saturday, Dec. 1 at 2 p.m.
Also, don't forget the Side-Street
Arts & Crafts on parade day, start-
ing at 8 a.m. behind Town Hall. You
may pick up a parade application at
the Town of Bell office, any Gilchrist
County school, or call to have one
mailed to you. If you would like to
be a part of the planning commit-
tee or would like more information,
please contact Connie Jordan (386)
935-0026 or Tommy Brown, Mayor
(352) 463-6288.


There has been a lot of talk within
the county about "the team." If
elected would you lead the school
district with help from a team, or
consider hiring an assistant super-
intendent of schools?
I will be the active leader of the
school district and I know I will be
held accountable for all decisions
made in our schools.
From past leadership positions I've
held in our schools, I know that it is
vital to evaluate, assess and analyze
thoroughly all employees who work
in our system prior to making person-
nel decisions. All administrative per-
sonnel at this point are under contract
until June 30, 2013. This will give
me ample time to make the changes
necessary to adhere to my leadership
style.

Would you consider consolidating
Trenton and Bell schools?
-There are several pros and cons
to consolidating the schools. At this
time, we are in a financial crisis and
the State will not fund a new facil-
ity. Also we would lose the Sparsity
Funding we are receiving annually
from the State because of our small
school sizes. An additional cost we
would incur would be busing students
farther and adding additional routes.
This is not economically feasible at
this time.
As funding improves, we can read-
dress the topic of school consolida-
tion because there are some benefits
for our students by doing it.

"WIN THE LOST AND TEACH THE SAVED TO SERVE"


Heart Matters
By Angie Land


Have you ever wondered what
your last words will be? What would
you say to those you love if you knew
it was the last thing they would hear
you say? Among those I love, one
of the most difficult conversations to
imagine would be with my children.
As I have experienced milestones in
my children's lives, I have often ex-
pressed gratitude to God for being
able to share those precious moments
with them. How difficult it would be
to sum up all I would want to say to
prepare them for life in one conversa-
tion!
In Deuteronomy chapter 34, the
death of Moses is recorded. In the
previous 33 chapters, Moses gives
his final words and last instructions.
As Moses faces his death and hand-
ing over the reins of leadership to
Joshua, what an emotional time this
must have been! The very people
that he has spent the last forty years
caring for and leading now must go
on without him.
Often life, and death, doesn't give
us the opportunity to pass on those last
words, so let's take a moment right
now and think about what you would
say to those you love. What would
top your list...the importance of edu-
cation, financial wisdom, or protect-
ing the family name? Wouldn't we
want them to learn from our mistakes
and not repeat them...as well as en-
joy our formulas for success?
Moses' address reminds the Israel-
ites of all they have seen and heard
with their own eyes and ears, and he
charged them to "watch themselves
carefully" so they would not forget.
They had experienced God's presence
through the wilderness in one situa-
tion after another. Our final words to
our loved ones would surely be the
same, not a series of new thoughts or
instructions, but a reminder of all we,
learned along the way. Don't miss
how obedience to God is the summa-
ry and priority of every word Moses
imparts:
"Hear now, O Israel, the decrees
and laws I am about to teach you.
Follow them so that you may live and
may go in and take possession of the
land that the Lord, the God of your
fathers is giving you. Do not add to
what I command you and do not sub-
tract from it, but keep the commands
of the Lord your God that I give you.
Only be careful and watch yourselves
closely so that you do not forget the
things your eyes have seen or let
them slip from your heart as long as
you live." (Deut. 4:1-2,9)
Once we have decided what our


last words would be to those we
love, shouldn't we get busy living
like we mean them? Authenticity de-
mands that we live out what we say
we believe or they are simply empty
words; words not taken seriously by
those who know us. If we are going
to talk it, by all means, let's walk it...
because every heart matters!
Blessings, Angle

Bridget was diagnosed with
leukemia at 21 months old.


I have been asked a number of times why I am
interested in becoming a School Board
member. The most obvious reason is that I
have a vested interest in our school system
with four children that attend Gilchrist
schools. There is another reason though; I
believe that it is time for my generation to step
up and make sure that our children's
generation have all the opportunities and more
that we were blessed to have enjoyed. This is
what our parents did for us and now it is our
obligation to our children in return. I believe
new ideas, foresight, and the ability to listen to
our teachers' and students' needs is
paramount to keep our school system at the
top. It's my goal as we continue down the path
to higher education, to give our children the
fundamental building blocks for a strong
foundation to ensure a successful future. I


humbly ask for your
November 6th.

Cry of the

Banshee

Submitted

celebrate the opening of their 30th
season of providing the Tri-County
area with live theater productions
this Friday with the opening of "Cry
of the Banshee".

-family .,Generations later, Whitman
Manor "has been moved stone by
stone to America and the last of the
family, a young brother and sister,
seek to escape the curse. But stalk-
ing the house, even in modem times,
is. an ancient spirit or sidhe, a thing
that can never die, which has taken
on human form. Its name is Roder-
ick, and he has no idea that he.isn't a
man of flesh and blood. Also, he's in
love with the sister, whom he plans
to marry! Things go awry on the an-
niversary of the curse when Oona's
descendant, a dealer in witchcraft, ar-
rives at the house and commands the
sidhe to begin its evil.
Show dates are set for September
14th, 15th, at 8:00 pm and 16th at
2:30 pm and September 21st, 22nd at

Mr. William Rees, Sr.
William James Rees, Sr.
Mr. William James Rees, Sr., 87, of
Williston, left his family early Mon-
day morning to be with his wife Ruby
once again.
Bill grew up in Pennsylvania, the
last of seven children.
He loved to hunt and explore the
snow-covered wdods that surrounded
his home.
When the family moved to Day-
tona Beach, he attended Seabreeze
High School where he met and later
married the love of his life, Ruby
Rees.
The young couple moved west and
Bill trained there for the Air Force,
where he served in World War II.
When the war ended, he bought the
Eustis and Leesburg airports.
A strong entrepreneurial spirit
soon led him into real estate develop-
ment. In Lake County he developed
Sunny Dell Park and Western Shores
on Lake Eustis.
Bill moved the family to Citrus
County where he created Hernando's
Hide-Away and later, in Levy Coun-
ty, established the Buy Rite Land

take family and friends to his "home
away from home" in Cedar Key.

especially to the mountains. They
enjoyed Sugar Mountain in North

adventurers in the family.
This unique patriarch will never
be forgotten. He was quick with a
laugh and a joke but always deeply
concerned for those he loved. His
engaging personality and one-of-a-
kind sense of humor will always stay
with us.

words.
You are still the greatest person I will ever know, love or

Log Cabin News

Submitted
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, Sept. 6th, at the Levy County
Quilt Museum. We had four guests
to join us. Two of the guests were
delighted to find that Evelyn Ether-
idge had joined us that day. Mrs.
Etheridge was a teacher for one and
a teacher mentor for the other. The
visitors were from Inglis, Jackson-
ville, Perry and Chiefland. Newcom-
ers and non-quilters are always wel-
come.
We should be finishing the Water-
melon quilt and we have two quilts
planned to go into frames. We'll have
a Blue quilt top that Winnelle Home
had completed and a black and white
top to work on. With two frames go-
ing, we'll have one quilt in the Main
room and the other in the Quilt room
so the volunteers will be able to work
on it during the week.
Greg and the boys were out. They
got the lawn looking great and the
flower beds are clean. It takes a lot
of work to keep the place looking
great. Thanks to the boys, the inside
is looking great also.
As always, the rocking chairs are
waiting. We're openTuesdaythrough
Saturday from 10 a.m. 'til 3 p.m. and
there is no admission charge.

District Governor attends

Trenton Rotary meeting
By Bill Kilborn
This was the 32nd Rotary Club that Ed Philman, District Governor for
Rotary District 6940 with 51 clubs, made since his installation July 2nd. Yes,
Ed Philman is well known in the Gilchrist County area and is the County
Judge. He makes most of the local Rotary meetings, but he still has to make
the "Official Visit" to his own club.
Philman discussed the workings of Rotary International with the well
known motto of "Service Above Self" and this year's additional motto
"Peace Through Service". The primary goal of Rotary International is the
eradication of polio and tremendous strides are being made in that direction.
He described his travels with the 31 previous club visits as wonderful and is
thrilled to be in the position to do so to spread the meaning of Rotary. He
even described the food as the various meetings as "Best Ever" to "What Is
This Stuff'!
