School board narrows search for new attorney


By Carrie A. Mizell
A Bell native is one of three
attorneys being considered as the
new attorney for the Gilchrist County
School Board.
Joy L. Powell, daughter of Tim
and Lori Powell, was selected as the
top choice for the position of school
board attorney.
Sheree H. Lancaster has served as


the Gilchrist County School Board
attorney for 22 years. In August,
Lancaster was elected Gilchrist
County Judge. As such, she will be
resigning her position as Gilchrist
County School Board attorney
effective December 31, 2012, to
embark on her new role as county
judge. Prior to Lancaster, W. O.
Clifton served as the Gilchrist County


School Board attorney for some 40
years.
After reviewing numerous
resumes, the Gilchrist County School
Board ranked their top choices for
School Board attorney last week
during a regular school board
meeting. Powell, who graduated as
valedictorian of Bell High School's
Class of 2005, was considered the


number one choice. Powell went
on to earn her Bachelor of Arts in
political science with a history minor
from the University of Florida. She
received her Juris Doctor in May
2011 from the University of Florida
Levin College of Law. Currently,
Powell works with Mark J. Feather,
P.A. in Trentdn.
Attorneys Susan Seigle and David


Delaney of the Dell Graham law
firm in Gainesville, were ranked by
school board members as the second
choice for the school board attorney
position. McMillan Law Firm of
Mayo, under the direction of attorney
Leenette W. McMillan-Fredriksson
tied for the number two spot among
top applicants.
School board members weeded


through the resumes last week.
Attorneys who did not make the final
Scut include: Audrie M. Harris, Ray E.
Thomas, Jr., and Norm D. Fugate and
Blake Woodroe Fugate.
According to Cloud Haley, the
Gilchrist County School Board is
expected to make a final decision on
the hiring of a new attorney during

Commission approves

FDOT adding left turn


lane at intersection


By John M. Ayers
The Gilchrist County Commission
approved a right of way request
from the Florida Department of
Transportation to expand the
intersection of US 129 and CR 339
south in Trenton to add a left turn lane
on to US 129. Bobby Crosby, Gilchrist
County Administrator, reported to
the board that semi-trucks, often time
hauling logs, will attempt to turn left
onto US 129 headed south and block

traffic in both north and southbound
lanes of the county highway.
Crosby presented an engineering
design of Parcel 100 as a fee simple
acquisition for the purpose of adding
a left turn lane to this intersection to
allow an improved and safer traffic
corridor leading up to US 129 into
Trenton. Commissioner Randy
Durden made a motion to approve the
proposal for the FDOT construction
of the US 129-CR 339 improvements
and allow the chairman to sign the
right of way resolution. Commission
D. Ray Harrison, Jr. gave a second to
the motion before the board voted 4-
0 in favor of the action.
The Gilchrist County Commission
took action to approve the re-roof
of a picnic shelter at the SR 47
Park adjacent to the Santa Fe River,
just inside Gilchrist County. The
Commission had county maintenance
staff re-roof an adjacent shelter in this
park earlier this year in September. A
group of neighboring residents have
organized a SR 47 Park group that
is working to improve the park and
keep the area clean.

Pennsylvania shooting of

costumed child prompts

Halloween safety concerns


By Carrie A. Mizell
Halloween is next week!
In the excitement of getting kids
dressed up in costumes, it's impor-
tant to remember to practice' safety
while out trick-or-treating this year.
An 8-year-old Pennsylvania girl
was shot last week while dressed for
Halloween in a black and white cos-
tume. She was reportedly mistaken
for a skunk.
Please don't let this happen to your
child!
If you choose to participate in
trick-or-treating, here are some tips
that you should consider, courtesy of
halloweenmagazine.com:
Always use common sense.
Young children should always go'
trick-or-treating with an adult.
Never trick-or-treat alone, have at
least two buddies go with you.
Plan your entire route and make
sure your family knows what it is.
-Make sure you are wearing a
flame retardant costume that is bright
and reflective.


Wait until you get home and your
parents check your candy before you
eat it.
Be very cautious of strangers.
Accept treats only from a door-
way, never go inside a house.
Be sure to say thank you for your
treats.
Don't play near lit jack-o-lan-
terns. Be sure children know how to
stop, drop and roll in the event their
costume catches on fire. (Stop imme-
diately, drop to the ground, covering
your face with your hands, roll over
and over to extinguish the flames).
Visit only houses where the lights
are on.
Walk, do not run.
Walk on sidewalks and drive-
ways.
Cross the street at a corner or in
a crosswalk.
Take a cellular phone with you if
possible.
Wear a watch.
Carry a flashlight.
Always use common sense.

The Tigers jumped out to an early
lead after senior running back Cedric
Stokes rushed for the score. The
Blue Wave tied the score at 6-6 on a
touchdown pass. Tiger quarterback
Stephen Smith gave the Tigers the
lead for good after he dashed in for
a score and followed with a 2-point
conversion. The Tigers scored two
touchdowns in the second period to
take a 26-6 lead at halftime.
The Tigers' rushing attack spurred
by Breon Sims' three scores allowed
the visiting Tigers to push the Blue
Wave defense around when the score
was needed. Trenton put on 28 points
in the second half to take the 54-28
win.
Cedric Stokes rushed for 155 yards
on 20 touches for the Tigers. Kenny
Deen had 89 yaids on 10 carries

yards on 15 rushes for the Tigers'
offense. Stephen Smith completed 4
of 7 passes for 56 yards and Stokes

I can't believe that Halloween is
next week. This year has just flown
by. The next thing you know we will
be picking out turkeys.
Our grandchildren have been so
excited about their costumes and of
course all the possibilities of candy. It
brings back sweet memories of when
our children were young and our lo-
cal sewing ladies made wonderful
costumes for them.
Back in the day we only made a
few stops while out trick or treat-
ing. We stopped in at the homes of
people who were near and dear to our
family. Mrs. Faye Layfield, who ran
a little daycare where Carrie and J.
stayed while I worked, always made
them feel very special when they
rang her door bell and shouted "Trick
or Treat." Momma-Faye, as the kids
called her, would make homemade
popcorn balls the size of softballs for
all the children she kept on Hallow-
een. What a special treat to receive a
homemade popcorn ball that tasted
so good.
I thought of Momma-Faye when
I read this recipe. After testing it I
found that it was indeed very good
and really quite easy to make. This
caramel corn will stay fresh for sev-
eral days stored in zip top bags. This
recipe makes about 24 one cup serv-
ings. I thought it would look really
Halloweeneeee to put one cup in a
clear food safe bag and tie the top
with orange and black ribbon.
So if you can make the time, try
this recipe, it really is very good. The
recipe testers (Allie and Gus) at our


home gave this one the thumbs up.
'%<57''a1 -t

7 quarts popped plain popcorn
2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup white Karo syrup
1 teaspoon salt
2 sticks butter
1/2 teaspoon soda
I teaspoon vanilla
Place brown sugar, Karo syrup, salt
and butter in heavy bottomed sauce
panand bring to a boil over medium
heat. When the mixture comes to a
rolling boil cook it for five minutes.
Remove the boiling caramel from
the stove and quickly stir in baking
soda and vanilla. Pour caramel over
popcorn and stir well, spreading the
caramel sauce evenly over the pop-
corn. When coated spread popcorn
out in two large sheet pans (12x16 or
larger) spread out evenly and bake at
250 degrees for one hour stirring ev-
ery 15 minutes for 1 hour.
Hint: When making this recipe I
used loose popcorn and popped it us-
ing the directions on the back of jar.'I
pop my corn using a large heavy bot-
tom pot. If you would like to make
it using microwave bagged popcorn
just be sure to use the natural style
that has no salt or seasoning on it.
Also, if you plan to use salted butter
in this recipe you might need to cut
the salt to 3/4 teaspoon. Before test-
ing this recipe I thought that it would
stick to the pan so I lined my pan with
parchment paper, but as it turned out
it really was not very sticky after all.

As the owner of a small construction

THURSDAYOCTOBER 25 2


GILCHRISI' COUNTY .IOURINAL


Bob Clemons


,What made you decide to run for a
seat on the Gilchrist County School
IBoard?
- When 1 originally sought public
'office and even now my motivation
's still the same, I thought 1 could
.help my community. 1 truly believe
my twenty plus years experience in
school finance along with my wife,
Wanda's, thirty one years instruction-
al time in the classroom in our dis-
trict would provide a good frame of
reference for sound decisions about
school board issues.

Why do you feel you are the best
candidate for the job?
We are in the middle of challenging
financial times in our country. Bud-
get concerns effects everything the
school system tries to accomplish.
My accounting and finance back-
ground will help me understand the
issues before us and allow me to pro-
vide leadership in working through
them. As a school finance director I
constantly receive updates and train-
ings on the latest educational issues.
1 am familiar with the state require-
ments and mandates we must meet to
continue to be in compliance. I think
I can continue to offer leadership
with solutions during these tough
economic times.

What do you consider the top three
current issues facing the Gilchrist
County School District?
In my opinion the three top issues
are:
'1. Lack of funding for public
schools is the most critical issue
we face. It effects every decision
we make for our students and
our staff.
.2. Recruiting and retaining the best
and the brightest to teach our
students is a challenge. We have
a fairly competitive salary sched-
ule and our schools are a safe and
friendly environment for anyone
to work. Nothing leads to suc-
cess like success, and we are an
"A" district. Folks want to be a
part of a winning team. We are
very proud of our school system!
Our teachers, staff, parents, stu-
dents, and community members
work together toward our vision


of higher achievement in public
education.
3. Motivation is also an important
element for our staff and stu-
dents. Somehow we have to lind
a way to reward those who are
motivating our students to reach
for higher achievements.

Superintendent Don Thomas has
said repeatedly that the District is
facing tough economic times. Do
you have any suggestions on how
the District could save money?
Obviously reducing expenditures
is critical and we are always looking
for more efficient ways to deliver in-
struction. More fund transfers from
the local capital improvement funds
could provide some immediate relief
to our general fund. Part of this solu-
tion could involve long term financ-
ing for capital improvements such
as buses, computers, and buildings.
This stretching of our capital bud-
gets could provide some cash flow
that .may help relieve our immediate
budget shortfall. However, this is
not a long term solution, and because
we are a very conservative district, 1
would not encourage or recommend
we incur too much debt. That is an
important point in this discussion.
Gilchrist County Schools have very
little outstanding debt. Just like your
personal finances the lower your debt
payments the easier it is to adapt to
the "new normal".

We seem to be hearing more and
more about charter schools in Flor-


ida. What do you think Gilchrist
SCounty schools can offer students
that a private or charter school
cannot?
1 am seeking a position on the
School Board which has oversight for
public education in Gilchrist County.
I really cannot address private
schools because I do not know what
they offer. Charter schools are public
schools but they are governed by their
own board. The school district is the
"sponsor" and they have oversight
responsibilities. We have no Charter
Schools in Gilchrist County.
In choosing public education, our
student's progress is regulated to a
different degree than private or char-
ter schools by the Florida Department
of Education.
We have excellent schools in
Gilchrist. Our teachers, parents, and
students work extremely hard to en-
sure that we are serving our overall
purpose to fulfill every student's
potential and prepare them for what
tomorrow holds.
Experience has taught me you
make a living by what you get but you
build a life by what you give. 1 think-
school is a great place for students to
make that discovery and form habits
that will allow us all to build a better
community.
Public, private, or Charter, each
child must be valued as an individual.
They are all our kids and we will all
be enriched if we help them succeed.

Dear Citizens of Gilchrist County,.
I'd like to share with you my thoughts on why '.
my husband is the best choice for your next Tax .f
Collector. .) .
I truly know how devoted he is to our county .
and the residents who live here. I have seen
how much time he has put in serving the people
as commissioner for the last nine years. Riding
county roads, helping people solve their issues,
attending meetings, serving on committees, f J
and attending events. Day after day giving his
time and resources back to the community. I
have witnessed that he is truly a servant. He is also a dedicated and responsible people person.
He has the experience, qualifications, leadership skills, and has done research to take office with a
flawless transition.
Above and beyond all that he does for Gilchrist County, he is a Christian and devoted husband. He
puts God first in all his choices that he makes. If it is a decision that may weigh heavy on his mind
and heart, he prays for God's guidance in the decision he makes. When Tommy reaches a conclusion
regarding a county matter, it was not decided due to a personal agenda. He honestly believes in his
heart, he is doing what is best for our county and its residents. I know from personal experience what
Gilchrist County means to Tommy.
I am very confident in stating, the best candidate to be your next Tax Collector, is Tommy Langford.
My husband is honest, caring, loving, and devoted to serving Gilchrist County with the best friendly
service possible. Please consider him your one and only choice while you take time to vote!


Thank you and please vote,
Janet Jones Langford

Knowing nothing but darkness his whole life, the man
blind from birth now stood before the religious leaders of
his day trying to prove his restored eyesight was from the
hand of a man called Jesus. The Pharisees grilled the man
with questions of doubt unbelieving he was truly blind.
Calling his parents they questioned them about their son's
blindness which they confirmed he had been blind from
birth. As to how he received his sight they told the
Pharisees to ask their son. Demanding a straight answer the
Pharisees pressed the man further. The accused began to
teach his accusers showing them the power of God which
they \vould not see with their own eyes. He replied,
"'Since the world began it has been unheard of that
anyone opened thle eyes of one whlo iwas born blind. If
this Malni were not front God, He could do nothing.' TlheY
answered and said to hinm, '}lou were completely born in
sins, and are you teaching us?'.I nd tlher cast himt outt"
(John 9:32-34).
One man was born blind by a circumstance of nature and
a body of men born with physical sight could not see in
their hearts the power and wonder of God's power in Jesus.
Clearly evident throughout the miniisItr of Christ no man
would ever deny the miracle performed. When I a/arus i
was raised from the dead (John I I) the miracle was rnot
denied but confirmed when the chief priests and PIharisees
said, "What shall we do? For this mal worAs many
signs" (John 11:47). Others who were blind were healed
(Matthew 11:5; 12:22) along with thle nute. lame, sick,
diseased, etc. Nothing like this had ever been seen on tihe
scale of Jesus ministry. Thle blind man of John 9
understood the power of his miracle was not only his sight
being restored but the eternal power of God demonstrated


through Jesus Christ.
The healing of the blind man was not the first miracle ever
done. Creation itself is the evidence of the awesome power
of God when he "spoke" everything into existence (Genesis
1). Destroying man with the flood in Genesis 6 shows a
power second only to creation. Pharaoh witnessed firsthand
the destructive nature of God's fury (Exodus 7-12) and the
Hebrews walked in the midst of God's grace when they
crossed the Red Sea on dry land (Exodus 14). The Bible
unfolds page after page of the majestic power of God in His
working with man throughout the generations. John
confirms the purpose of miracles proving that Jesus is the
Christ, the Son of God and the world itself could not
contain the books that would be written of what Jesus did
(John 20:30-31: 21:25).
Not since the world began has there been a book that
would tell man so much about who he is, where he came
from and w\\hat lay before him in death. The Bible is the last
and final miracle of God and yet most men cannot see His
power in this book. like the Pharisees of John 9 men today
cannot deny the evidence of the book yet they. deny its
message of salvation. It has stood the test of time and will
endure until the last day (I Peter 1:25). The gospel is God's
power (Ronmans I:10) and while critics assail its contents
the purityv of its message remains unchanged for
general ions.
The blind man saw more than most men. Hle experienced
the grace of God when his eyes were opened and today
\\henl our eecs are opened by the word of God we
understand the grace of God (Romans 10:17). "Open my
Cyes, that I may see wondrous things from Your law"
(Psalms 119:18).

Matthew Rexroat


What made you decide to run for a
seat on the Gilchrist County School
Board?
For the last several years I have
developed an interest in politics.
Gilchrist County has been very good
to me and my family. This is our
home and it is where we will raise
our children. I want to give back to
our community and believe I can
best do this by contributing in help-
ing to mold and oversee our schools
as a member of the Gilchrist County
School Board.
With our four children in school
and being involved in the education
process lirst hand, it seemed only nat-
ural that my interest would be in our
school system. Also, as a child grow-
ing up 1 witnessed the accomplish-
ments of the school board in which
my dad and his fellow members were
a part. I'm sure this played a role in
my desire to seek this office.

Why do you feel you are the best
candidate for the job?
To me, the word "best" implies 1
am better than Mr. Clemons and I just
don't like that. Mr. and Mrs. Clemons
have been nothing but gracious to me
and my family during this campaign
and I have the utmost respect for both
of them. As 1 have said before, I am
running for the Gilchrist County Dis-
trict 2 seat and not Mr. Clemons.
First of all, I have the willingness
and desire to serve my fellow citi-
zens in this important position and
if given the opportunity I believe I
can make a significant contribution
in our already good school system.
1 am young enough yet old enough
to understand the challenges our stu-
dents face and I believe 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.
Besides having a vested interest with
four children in school, these are the
reasons and my beliefs of why I want
to be your School Board member
from District 2. (1) I am a conserva-
tive and believe in limited govern-
ment as well as low taxes. We in
Gilchrist County should be allowed
to run our schools in a large part as
we see fit. (2) 1 can and will ask ques-
tions. I do not believe in the Nancy
Pelosi model of passing something
so we can find out what's in it. (3) 1
will listen to your concerns and will
treat all with civility and respect. (4) 1
do not and will not be intimidated by
anyone whether it is a fellow board
member, superintendent, special in-
terest group, or the powers that be
in Tallahassee or Washington. (5) 1
believe unfunded mandates and well
intended programs such as No Child
Left Behind and FCATs have become
a plague on education and for the


Matthew Rexroat


most part should be abolished. (6) 1
believe the three Rs are very impor-
tant. However, 1 believe Civics, Gov-
ernment, and American History are
of equal value. Our students need to
be taught how our government works
and that America is not what's wrong
with the world. Patriotism and de-
mocracy are not bad words as some
in our country would have us believe.
There use to be a required course
called Americanism vs. Communism,
I believe we should consider bringing
it back. (7) 1 can and will make the
hard decisions.
Politics will not be a part of the de-
cision making process.

What do you consider the top three
current issues facing the Gilchrist
County School District?
1. Funding
2. Morale of faculty and staff
3. Compliance of Federal and State
programs

Superintendent Don Thomas has
said repeatedly that the District is
facing tough economic times. Do
you have any suggestions on how
the District could save money?
80% of the budget is personnel
which is the last place you would
look to cut spending. Our faculty
and staff do not have the same salary
schedule of those in Chicago. Stag-
nant salary, decrease in benefits, and
more bureaucratic work for basically
less money: so where do we look?
Travel, suspend all out of county
travel for administrators, faculty,
and staff unless recommended by
the superintendent and approved by
the board. Fuel costs contiue..to.go
up! I have been told that by chang-
ing our buses to natural gas we could
save a significant amount of money. I
believe this should be investigated to
see if it is a viable option.
Energy. do we have an energy plan
in place that controls the thennostat
and electricity?
Maintenance, preventive mainte-
nance is much more cost effective.
Personnel, by placing a hiring


freeze and not funding those posi-
tions of the faculty and staff that re-
tire or leave our system.
Textbooks, textbooks are very ex-
pensive and I imagine money could
be saved by eliminating hard text-
books and going to the e-readers in-
stead. This would be something else
to explore.
Bids, bidding from state contracts
may not always be cost effective.
This should be given a closer look.
Janitorial, in house vs. contract
needs to be re-evaluated to see which
is more cost effective.
Food Service, needs to be evalu-
ated as with all other departments. Is
it paying for itself, making money, or
is the general fund having to subsi-
dize it?

We seem to be hearing more and
more about charter schools in Flor-
ida. What do you think Gilchrist
County schools can offer students
that a private or charter school
cannot?
SI believe public education is the
life blood of our country. However,
public schools and charter schools do
not play by the same rules. Charter
schools don't have to put up with the
bureaucratic nonsense that the pub-
lic schools must adhere. I believe if
our county's public schools were not
broken we would not have charter
schools. I can see why charter schools
are attractive to parents and teachers.
Charter schools can pick and choose
their students where public schools
serve all. Public school funding is
based on student enrollment and ev-
ery student that is enrolled in a char-
ter school takes funding from pub-
lic schools. In Gilchrist County, we
are down by over 100 students this
year. 1 believe most of those students
have moved out of the district but
some are in charter schools, private
schools or being home-schooled. We
are very fortunate in Gilchrist County
to have good public schools because
of a great faculty and staff, good ad-
ministrators, excellent parental in-
volvement, students who are willing
to learn, and wonderful community
Support. Bottom line, charter schools
do hurt public education because of
the way we are funded but again I
can see why they are attractive. As a
whole, let's fix our country's broken
Public school system. Let's get rid
of unfunded mandates, national pro-
grams that develop a life of their own
once enacted, elect representatives
that have some common sense when
passing legislation, keep a close eye
on those so- called "think tanks" who
come up with hair-brained ideas to
make education better, and the ever
watchful ACLU who looks constant-
ly over your shoulder. As you know,
change must start at the local level.

Jars of Clay


Jars of Clay to perform

at Florida Gateway

College in November


Submitted
Known for their positive spin on
music. Jars of Clay has been a main-
stay on Contemporary Christian mu-
sic airwaves for more than a decade.
The popular band will make its way
to Florida Gateway College on No-
vember 10th, for an unforgettable
show.
The concert, sponsored by
Parkview Baptist Church, will take
place at 7:30 p.m., at the Howard
Conference Center on the campus
of Florida Gatway College in Lake
City.
Jars of Clay is one of the more
successful CCM groups in recent
history, a three-time Grammy Award
winning and nine-time GMA Dova
Award winner.
Their self-titled debut album went
double platinum, and their break-
through song, "Flood," was a cross-
over hit on alternative rock stations, a
radio format that rarely interacts with


CCM music, and peaked at No. 12 on
the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks.
The band's newest album, "The
Shelter," which incorporates appear-
ances from some of CCM's hottest
acts like Toby Mac, Amy Grant, and
David Crowder, was nominated for
two GMA Dove Awards in 2011.
Tickets for the performance are
still available and can be purchased
by visiting www.fgcentertainment.
com or by calling (386) 754-4340.
Tickets are $25 for general admis-
sion and $15 for FGC students, fac-
ulty, and staff, and a limited supply
of VIP seats remain open.
Group discounts are available.

GILCHRIST COUNTY .()IRNAI


Viewpoint: I, Too, Have Become Disillusioned


By Matt Patterson, a columnist for
the \ihshington Post, New' )rk i'o.st,
Slanl Fl'rancisco E ini'r
Years from now, historians may
regard the 2008 election of Barack
Obama as an inscrutable and disturb-
ing phenomenon, the result of a baf-
fing breed of mass hysteria akin per-
haps to the witch craze of the Middle
Ages. How, they will wonder, did a
man so devoid of professional ac-
complishment beguile so many into
thinking he could manage the world's
largest economy, direct the world's
most powerful military, execute the
world's most consequential job'?
Imagine a future historian exam-
ining Obama's pre-presidential life:
ushered into and through the Ivy
League, despite unremarkable grades
and test scores along the way; a cushy
non-job as a "community organizer;"
a brief career as a state legislator de-
void of legislative achievement (and
in fact nearly devoid of his attention,
so often did he vote "present"); and
finally an unaccomplished single
term in the United States Senate, the
entirety of which was devoted to his
presidential ambitions.
He left no academic legacy in aca-
demia, authored no signature legis-
lation as a legislator. And then there
is the matter of his troubling asso-
ciations: the white-hating, America-
loathing preacher who for decades
served as Obama's "spiritual men-
tor"; a real-life, actual terrorist who


served as Obalna's colleague and po
litical sponsor. It is easy to ima.ina e a
future historian looking at it all and
asking: how on ilarth was such a mlni
elected president?
Not content to wait lfor history, the
incomparable Norman Podhoretz adI
dressed the question recently in the
WIIll Sitreel ,Jornal: "'lb be sure, no
white candidate who had close as-
sociations with an outspoken hater
of America like Jeremiah Wright and
an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ay-
ers, would have lasted a single day.
But because Mr. Obama was black,
and therefore entitled in the eyes of
liberal Dom to have hung out with
protesters against various American
injustices, even if they were a bit ex-
treme, he was given a pass. Let that
sink in: Obama was given a pass -
held to a lower standard because of
the color of his skin."
Podhoretz continues: "And in any
case, what did such ancient history
matter when he was also so articulate
and elegant and (as he himself had
said) "non-threatening," all of which
gave him a fighting chance to become
the first black president and thereby
to lay the curse of racism to rest?"
Podhoretz puts his finger, 1 think,
on the animating pulse of the Obama
phenomenon affirmative action.
Not in the legal sense, of course. But
certainly in the motivating sentiment
behind all affirmative action laws
and regulations, which are designed
primarily to make white people, and

S Infortiunately, miin rilies often

admit minorities to schools for which

Liberals don't care if these miniori-

one to a separate standard merely be-

affirmative action in a nutshell, and if
that isn't racism, then nothing is. And
that is what America did to Obama.
True, Obama himself was never

contrary.
What could this breed if not the sort
of empty narcissism on display every
time Obama speaks? In 2008, many
who agreed that he lacked execu-

Ayers gets 5

star rating

Submitted
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
is proud to announce that they have
received a five star rating from U.S
World News and Reports for the
fourth consecutive year!
The U.S. News rankings are built
on data from Nursing Home Com-
pare, a consumer web site run by
the federal Centers for Medicare and
Medicaid Services (CMS).
CMS sets and enforces standards
for all nursing homes enrolled in
Medicare or Medicaid. The data for
Nursing Home Compare comes from
regular health inspections carried out
by state agencies and from the homes
themselves. Based on that informa-
tion, CMS assigns an overall rating
of one to five stars to all nursing
homes other than a few too new for
meaningful data to be available.
Homes are also given one to five
stars in how well they do in the health
inspections, in providing enough
nurses, and providing a high level of
quality of care.
Ayers Health and Rehabilitation
Center has met these criteria and is
pleased to provide five star care to
the residents of our community. Our
center attributes its success rating to
our wonderful partners that provide
the daily positive support to our resi-
dents and our philosophy of person
centered care. Treating folks with
dignity they deserve and respect at
any age, are required for healing and
a great quality of life! Thank you to
our community for supporting us and
making us the best we can be!

Mrs. Belinda's TES Headstart class with Deputy Scotty Douglas and K-9 Officer, Sinbad.


K-9 deputy visits Trenton

Elementary Headstart class


By Megan Stalvey
On Thursday, Oct. 18th, the
Gilchrist County Sheriff's Office K-9
Deputy Scotty Douglas visited Mrs.
Belinda's Headstart class at Trenton
Elementary. The look on the stu-
dent's faces was of awe and excite-
ment when they walked out of their
classroom to find Deputy Douglas
standing outside with his K-9 Officer,
Sinbad.
The children gathered 'round and
listened intently to Deputy Douglas
as he explained what his and Sinbad's
jobs were. Deputy Douglas discussed
the importance of "Just say no," and
explained to the children that if they
ever need help or are in trouble that
they can talk to an officer. This pre-
sentation coincided with Fire Safety
week and the students were told that
if they smell smoke or see a fire to
run tell an adult and to call 9-1-1.
Deputy Douglas demonstrated dif-
ferent German commands that Sin-
bad obeys and also showed the class
how Sinbad likes to play too! He


gave a fun demonstration of the neat
tricks that Sinbad could do. Deputy
Douglas proceeded to answer the
questions that both the students and
teachers had. The main question that
all the children wanted to know was,

Performance

pay passed

for cabinet
By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County School
Board, with the exception of School
Board member Julie Thomas, who
was absent from the meeting, voted
unanimously last week to approve an
amended salary schedule.
District-level instructional admin-
istrators, specifically the assistant
superintendent, director of second-
ary education, director of elementary
education and director of special pro-
grams will now be eligible to receive
Performance Based Pay at the same
level as school-level administrators.
Performance Based Pay will be de-
termined by the individuals' perfor-
mance evaluation. District-level in-
structional leaders receiving a rating
of Outstanding on their performance
evaluation will be awarded the same
amount as school-level administra-
tive personnel.
"Gilchrist County has been a lead-
er in performance pay for years," Su-
perintendent Don Thomas said this
week. "It is our goal that all instruc-
tional employees are held account-
able for their performance."
Thomas pointed out that the in-
structional administrators will now
be eligible for the same bonuses
teachers and principals are currently
getting through the performance
based pay plan.
Florida law requires performance
pay be in place by the 2014-15 school
year for all instructional employees,
and we want the district instructional
staff to be held as accountable as our
teachers, Thomas added.
"This decision does not guaran-
tee anyone additional pay," Thomas
said.

Keep Bob on the Board ...
Bob has served us faithfully on the School Board for the past eight years and
twice was elected as Chairman by his peers. The Board has approved several major
improvements to our local educational system over the last few years:
1. While he was Chairman, the Board became a certified School Board for the
first time in its history. To be certified, a majority of its members must receive
at least 95 hours of in-service training on such things as parliamentary procedure,
business law, school finance, and human relations. In doing so, they established a
pattern of excellence for future boards. Only 20% of the state school boards
achieve this distinction
2. More and more of our students are taking advantage of dual enrollment.
They can graduate from high school and earn an AA degree at the same time. All
of the tuition and much of the instructional materials are covered through an
articulation agreement with the Lake City Community College (LCCC). This repre-
sents a real savings to our students and their parents.
3. The School Board opened the LCCC campus in Bell to provide direct access
to our community. Not only are our high school students taking advantage of it but
so are many people from the surrounding communities. LCCC also provide online
courses for those who may have a conflicting schedule.
4. When St. Leo University, Trenton Campus, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony
with the school board, it was a momentous occasion. This expansion provides the
opportunity for many of our students to be able to go from Kindergarten through
their Master's Degree in our county.
The Board recognizes many people were involved in making these things happen
and we are proud to be out front leading the charge towards higher achievement.
We are constantly looking for ways to improve.
I believe I can continue to add proven leadership and experience to our School
Board. I have a sincere desire to continue to serve our community and use my
knowledge and depth of experience to help our School Board continue towards the
standard of expected excellence.

Refuge Classroom celebrates with Birds of Prey


Submitted
To celebrate National Wildlife Ref-
uge Week 2012, the Lower Suwannee
NWR had several events throughout
the week.
The celebratory ribbon cutting for
the Grand Opening of the Lower
Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge
classroom was anticlimactic coin-
pared to the exciting events for the
remainder of the day.
Home-schooled students from
three neighboring counties joined
Refuge managers, rangers, and vol-
unteers for the best day of school
they'd ever had.
Students from second to ninth
grades arrived for the opening cere-
monies, then hopped aboard the hay-
ride that would take them down the
Refuge Nature Drive, through wet-
lands, uplands, and past a bat house
to the historic Suwannee River.
Each student filled-in the Refuge
Wildlife Scavenger Hunt sheets as
they passed by zebra swallow-tails,
blooming purple liatris, downy wood-
peckers hammering on a snag, and
coreopsis, our state wildflower. The
lesson at the river's edge was testing
temperature, turbidity, and dissolved
oxygen or Suwannee River water
quality.
' Refuge volunteer and former rang-
er, John Lohde engaged the kids with
his humorous teaching antics and the
interactive water testing and report-
ing. New vocabulary, new tests, new
confidence for students!
Upon returning from the education-
al hayride, the students were treated
tb birds of prey handled by rehabilita-
tor and veterinarian Dr. Dawn Miller,
and her assistant Elizabeth Yates of
Eye of the Eagle Wildlife Sanctuary.
Wings flapped, a great horned owl
looted, and an osprey made noise
like a duck as the students settled-in
for a close-up experience with the
irptors.


Volunteer John Lohde leads the water quality / test lesson.


After Dr. Miller's raptor behavior
lesson, the students were provided
cameras by the Refuge Ranger and
were able to take close-up photos of
the magnificent birds.
After the excitement of the spec-
tacular birds, the students were given
nature journals in which they could
glue their photos and write the obser-
vations they had made.
While the kids learned about native
bees, volunteer Sandy Palfy printed-
off the photos for the students' jour-
nals.
By the end of the environmental
education event, parents had sched-
uled future lessons with the Ranger


to take place in Dixie County.
"This is just the kind of activities
I'd like to have my children involved
with; they enjoyed the birds especial-
ly," said one mom, Amy Brodahl, a
former teacher.
These free classes happen through-
out the year, even in the summer.
The Refuge Ranger is more than
happy to set up lessons for your
group, scouts or club at the Refuge
or she can come to your location with
lessons.
Call Ranger Pam at 352/493-0238,
extension 223 to make your reserva-
tion today for an exciting adventure
at the Lower Suwanee NWR.


The kickoff meeting was held
October 16, 2012, at 6:00 p.m., at
the Woman's Club.
We had a great turnout of partici-
pants eager to start the fundraising
process for the fight against cancer.
Food and drink were enjoyed by
all.
Businesses, teams, survivors,
caregivers, past participants and
residents were all invited to kick off
the American Cancer Society Relay
For Life of Gilchrist County. This
community celebration was open to
anyone wanting to learn more about
Relay For Life and how to get in-
volved. Relay For Life is a commu-
nity event that honors cancer sur-
vivors, current cancer patients and
caregivers. Relay also pays tribute
to those who have lost their battles
with cancer.
The Relay For Life kick-off rally
was an opportunity for everyone to
come together to kick off the Re-
lay For Life of Gilchrist County
and learn more about the event and
how to get involved. The American
Cancer Society Relay For Life is
an overnight community celebra-


RELAY
FOR LIFE
P--


tion where individuals and teams
camp out, barbecue, dance and take
turns walking around a track relay-
style to raise funds to fight cancer.
At nightfall, participants will light
hundreds of luminaria around the
track in a moving ceremony to
honor cancer survivors, as well as
friends and family members lost to
the disease.
Thanks for all you do in this very
important cause.

American Cancer Society, visit

SUPERINTENDENT of SCHOOLS


Elect a School Superintendent who:
/ Has LOBBIED in Tallahassee for our students
/ Has worked WITH and FOR our students for over 2 decades
/ Has a VESTED INTEREST in our schools (3 children enrolled)
d Has a BUSINESS mind and knows school budgets
/ Has been in the COMMUNITY, leading children & youth
/ Has a DEGREE and EXPERIENCE in EDUCATIONAL LEADERSHIP
A PROVEN EDUCATIONAL LEADER
Always putting students first!!!


Questions I have been asked on the campaign trail:
What do you see as the biggest issue facing public schools?
School funding is clearly at the top of the list. Our school system has not been immune to the financial problems
that have plagued our State and Nation over the past several years. The State has drastically cut our funding sources
and we are currently operating at approximately the 2007 funding level. In addition, our student numbers over the
past few years have declined as families seek employment outside of the county which further accelerates the
funding shortfall from the State. I believe that the Superintendent should be actively involved and, regularly
communicating with the governor and legislature expressing the importance of adequately funding public education.
Locally we must be as frugal as possible and eliminate any waste of electricity, water, fuel and supplies. We must
make sure that we are purchasing at the lowest prices using competitive bids. In addition, we must try to make better
use of our Education Consortium that our previous Assistant Superintendent, Dr. Jim Surrency is presently
overseeing. The new Superintendent's biggest challenge will be keeping a balanced budget while providing our
students with a quality education. I am the Superintendent candidate that has a working knowledge of both school
based and our district budgets.

What is your opinion of vocational and career tech programs?
We must constantly look for new career tech programs as the job market continues to change in the 21st Century.
Vo-tech programs are valuable to provide an avenue for students to prepare for occupations available in today's job
market as an alternative to a 4 year degree program in college. I have already stated some of these programs in a
previous article but include diesel/automotive and welding.

What is the importance of extracurricular activities?
Our schools should provide the opportunity for students to participate in extracurricular activities such as FFA,
athletics, clubs, band and all other worthwhile social and educational programs. The social skills and friendships
acquired during their elementary and high school years will last a lifetime. I feel that it is important that our schools


provide an atmosphere for the development of healthy interpersonal skills along with leadership traits they gain
through these school activities.

My goal as Superintendent will be to ensure that our schools will be held to the highest standards
and remember that I am entrusted with the education and safety of our children. I would
appreciate your support on Nov. 6th.

Heart Matters
1 By Angie Land


1 doubt if anyone has ever been
through a difficult time without ask-
ing or at least thinking: "How in the
world did I get here?"
Sometimes we realize we had no
control over the situation we are in,
and yet, other times we have to face
the reality that we alone are respon-
sible.
Whatever the case, we can con-
clude that our struggles are not with-
out purpose, they provide an oppor-
tunity to grow, learn, mature, and
prepare for what lies ahead. There-
fore, it is wise to determine, if pos-
sible, why we are "here" and perhaps
more importantly, what we need to
know in order to leave!
At.the end of Deuteronomy, chap-
ter one, Moses recounts the reason
behind Israel's forty-year stint in the
wilderness. In summary, spies were
chosen from each of the twelve tribes
to report on the best strategy for ac-


quiring Ihe land God had promised.
Instead, ten of the twelve returned
terrified and spread the news that
it was an .impossible task, and like
wildfire, fear spread to the point that
not going into the Promised Land
was the preferable choice. At this
point, God displayed His anger, and
after destroying the ten who spread
a bad report, pronounced the verdict:
Not one over the age of twenty would
enter the land, but would die in the
wilderness, all except Caleb and
Joshua who remained faithful. Those
under twenty years old would remain
in the desert for forty years, one year
for each of the forty days the spies
explored the land. Therefore, God
told Moses to have the Israelites turn
around and head back into the desert.
(See Numbers 14:20-35)
Instead of accepting God's judg-
ment, what the Israelites do next is
something we need to pay close at-
tention to, because we have the same
tendency: Numbers 14:39-40 re-
cords: "When Moses reported this to
all the Israelites, they mourned bitter-
ly. Early the next morning they went
up toward the high hill country. "We
have sinned," they said. "We will go
up to the place the Lord promised."
1 suppose in light of dying in the
desert or spending an extra forty
years wandering around, going into
the land God has promised doesn't
seem so scary all of the sudden. Does
this sound like a teenager who offers
to clean her room AFTER you take
the car keys, or the employee who
promises to show up on time AFTER
they are fired, or the spouse who
agrees to counseling, AFTER you
threaten to leave'? The Israelites tried
it anyway and were "attacked and
beaten down." God was not fooled
by this gesture of remorse, because
He knew it was not true repentance.
I can't help but wonder what would
have happened at this point if the Is-
raelites had truly repented over their
lack of faith. "Godly sorrow brings
repentance that leads to salvation and
leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow
brings death." (1 Corinthians 7:10)
Worldly sorrow is only sorry that it
was caught and now faces conse-
quences. However, if those conse-
quences can be avoided, everything
will go back like before, no change
will occur. Godly sorrow involves
remorse over causing pain to another,
especially God. Godly sorrow causes
us to confess in order to restore the
relationship, and makes us willing to
face consequences in order to pay our
debt.
Repentance is critical to our rela-
tionship with God and others, espe-
cially as we travel through the diffi-
cult seasons of life. Let's admit that
fixing things our way just creates a
bigger mess, and practice real repen-
tance, because every heart matters!

Ann Taylor got the idea for her quilt from fall pictures taken in North
Carolina. She drew the pattern on paper and this was the result.


Logf ealui duilte^.
The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Oct. 18, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. We had a good time working on the black and white quilt in the
frame. The work seems to go faster when you're with friends. The quilt
room is finally beginning to look good with most of the fabric put up on
shelves and tables cleaned off and boxes emptied and put out of sight.
Our annual Quilt Show will begin the Friday after Thanksgiving so we're
busy with plans and finishing up projects for the event.
Greg and the boys were out this week. They were busy getting the lawn in
shape for the winter. Thanks Lancaster.
Our rocking chairs are waiting for you.

Residents of Tri-County Nursing
Home have been taking advantage of
the cooler weather. In the past few
weeks, we have taken walks outside
and stopped along the way for cook-
ies and drinks. Recently, everyone
went outside and sat on one of the
many well-manicured grassy areas
to blow bubbles. Something as sim-
ple as blowing bubbles brings back
childhood memories to residents
and staff alike. The ultimate picnic
happened last week. Hot dogs and
burgers and all the sides were served
outside, Again, the weather was a
perfect sunny, cool day and everyone
had a great time.
The remodeling projects inside the
building are almost finished. Private
rooms have been repainted, wood
floors installed and new TVs and
furniture for our Medicare residents.

Gilchrist County Citizens:
I would like to say a few words about
Barbara Merritt, who is running for Tax
Collector for Gilchrist County. She may not
have the name recognition or the political
background as other candidates, however
there is no one who deserves the job more and
no one who could do a betterjob. The citizens
of Gilchrist County owe a huge thank you to W. W. Welch for
having the foresight to hire Barbara 28 years ago.
As the owner of Bell Concrete Products, I have many heavy
vehicles. Buying tags and transferring titles is not as simple for
private individuals. We have to provide proof that we have
paid our federal sales taxes, state sales taxes, road use taxes,
proof of insurance, etc. For 28 years now, I have always
searched for Barbara Merritt to help me through this process.
She is always knowledgeable and courteous. Barbara's attitude
is always 'How can 1 help the customer?", not "How can 1
cause more problems for the taxpayer?"
Gilchrist County has enjoyed a long run of competent Tax'
Collectors. I would like to see this tradition continue. So,
please vote Barbara Merritt for Tax Collector.
Sincerely,
Jack H. Smith

CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 4, 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTIONS 27, 32, 33

Property Tax Limitations; Property Value Decline; Reduction for Nonhomestead Assessment Increases; Delay of Scheduled Repeal

(1) This would amend Florida Constitution Article VII, Section 4 (Taxation; assessments) and Section 6 (Homestead exemptions). It also would amend
Article XII, Section 27, and add Sections 32 and 33, relating to the Schedule for the amendments. (2) In certain circumstances, the law requires the
assessed value of homestead and specified nonhomestead property to increase when the just value of the property decreases. Therefore, this amendment
provides that the Legislature may, by general law, provide that the assessment of homestead and specified nonhomestead property may not increase if the
just value of that property is less than the just value of the property on the preceding January 1, subject to any adjustment in the assessed value due to
changes, additions, reductions, or improvements to such property which are assessed as provided for by general law. This amendment takes effect upon
approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to
January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, shall take effect January 1, 2013. (3) This amendment reduces from 10 percent to 5 percent
the limitation on annual changes in assessments of nonhomestead real property. This amendment takes effect upon approval of the voters. If approved at a
special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012
general election, takes effect January 1,2013. (4) This amendment also authorizes general law to provide, subject to conditions specified in such law, an
additional homestead exemption to every person who establishes the right to receive the homestead exemption provided in the Florida Constitution within 1
year after purchasing the homestead property and who has not owned property in the previous 3 calendar years to which the Florida homestead exemption
applied. The additional homestead exemption shall apply to all levies except school district levies. The additional exemption is an amount equal to 50
percent of the homestead property's just value on January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional homestead exemption may not
exceed an amount equal to the median just value of all homestead property within the county where the property at issue is located for the calendar year
immediately preceding January 1 of the year the homestead is established. The additional exemption shall apply for the shorter of 5 years or the year of
sale of the property. The amount of the additional exemption shall be reduced in each subsequent year by an amount equal to 20 percent of the amount of
the additional exemption received in the year the homestead was established or by an amount equal to the difference between the just value of the property
and the assessed value of the property determined under Article VII, Section 4(d), whichever is greater. Not more than one such exemption shall be allowed
per homestead property at one time. The additional exemption applies to property purchased on or after January 1, 2011, if approved by the voters at a
special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, or to property purchased on or after January 1, 2012, if approved by the voters
at the 2012 general election. The additional exemption is not available in the sixth and subsequent years after it is first received. The amendment shall take
effect upon approval by the voters. If approved at a special election held on the date of the 2012 presidential preference primary, it shall operate
retroactively to January 1, 2012, or, if approved at the 2012 general election, takes effect January 1, 2013. (5) This amendment also delays until 2023, the
repeal, currently scheduled to take effect in 2019, of constitutional amendments adopted in 2008 which limit annual assessment increases for specified
nonhomestead real property. This amendment delays until 2022 the submission of an amendment proposing the abrogation of such repeal to the voters.

NO.5
CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENT
ARTICLE V, SECTIONS 2,11, AND 12

State Courts

Proposing a revision of Article V of the State Constitution relating to the judiciary. The State Constitution authorizes the Supreme Court to adopt rules for
the practice and procedure in all courts. The constitution further provides that a rule of court may be repealed by a general law enacted by a two-thirds vote
of the membership of each house of the Legislature. This proposed constitutional revision eliminates the requirement that a general law repealing a court
rule pass by a two-thirds vote of each house, thereby providing that the Legislature may repeal a rule of court by a general law approved by a majority vote
of each house of the Legislature that expresses the policy behind the repeal. The court could readopt the rule in conformity with the public policy expressed
by the Legislature, but if the Legislature determines that a rule has been readopted and repeals the readopted rule, this proposed revision prohibits the
court from further readopting the repealed rule without the Legislature's prior approval. Under current law, rules of the judicial nominating commissions and
the Judicial Qualifications Commission may be repealed by general law enacted by a majority vote of the membership of each house of the Legislature.
Under this proposed revision, a vote to repeal those rules is changed to repeal by general law enacted.by a majority vote of the legislators present. Under
current law, the Governor appoints a justice of the Supreme Court from a list of nominees provided by a judicial nominating commission, and appointments
by the Governor are not subject to confirmation. This revision requires Senate confirmation of a justice of the Supreme Court before the appointee can take
office. If the Senate votes not to confirm the appointment, the judicial nominating commission must reconvene and may not renominate any person whose
prior appointment to fill the same vacancy was not confirmed by the Senate. For the purpose of confirmation, the Senate may meet at any time. If the
Senate fails to vote on the appointment of a justice within 90 days, the justice will be deemed confirmed and will take office. The Judicial Qualifications
Commission is an independent commission created by the State Constitution to investigate and prosecute before the Florida Supreme Court alleged
misconduct by a justice or judge. Currently under the constitution, commission proceedings are confidential until formal charges are filed by the investigative
panel of the commission. Once formal charges are filed, the formal charges and all further proceedings of the commission are public. Currently, the
constitution authorizes the House of Representatives to impeach a justice or judge. Further, the Speaker of the House of Representatives may request,
and the Judicial Qualifications Commission must make available, all information in the commission's possession for use in deciding whether to impeach a
justice or judge. This proposed revision requires the commission to make all of its files available to the Speaker of the House of Representatives but
provides that such files would remain confidential during any investigation by the House of Representatives and until such information is used in the pursuit
of an impeachment of a justice or judge. This revision also removes the power of the Governor to request files of the Judicial Qualifications Commission to
conform to a prior constitutional change. This revision also makes technical and clarifying additions and deletions relating to the selection of chief judges of
a circuit and relating to the Judicial Qualifications Commission, and makes other nonsubstantive conforming and technical changes in the judicial article of
the constitution.

provided pursuant to general law relating to
workers' compensation; affect laws or rules in
effect as of March 1, 2010; affect the terms or

from a person or an employer for lawful health care
services; or affect any general law passed by two-
thirds vote of the membership of each house of the
Legislature, passed after the effective date of the
amendment, provided such law states with
specificity the public necessity justifying the
exceptions from the provisions of the amendment.

Prohibition on Public Funding of Abortions;
Construction of Abortion Rights

This proposed amendment provides that public
funds may not be expended for any abortion or for
health-benefits coverage that includes coverage of
abortion. This prohibition does not apply to an
expenditure required by federal law, a case in
which a woman suffers from a physical disorder,
physical injury, or physical illness that would place
her in danger of death unless an abortion is
performed, or a case of rape or incest. This
proposed amendment provides that the State
Constitution may not be interpreted to create
broader rights to an abortion than those contained
in the United States Constitution. With respect to.
abortion, this proposed amendment overrules court
decisions which conclude that the right of privacy
under Article I, Section 23 of the State Constitution
is broader in scope than that of the United States
Constitution.

Volunteers News

Last month we announced our an-
nual Thanksgiving Food Drive was
getting underway and letters of ap-
peal for financial support were being
mailed to area businesses and indi-
viduals. The letters have been mailed
and we have had a positive response
from some of those we have appealed,
but we need considerably more con-
tributions in order to meet our goal of
providing for over 300 families with
children in area schools.
If you haven't received an appeal
letter from us and would like to do-
nate to our cause you may mail a
check payable to the Gilchrist Sherr-
if's Volunteers and mail it to P.O. Box
1235 Trenton, FL 32693. Every dol-
lar donated will be used to purchase
turkeys and additional food items for
Thanksgiving dinners.
PLEASE NOTE, because Elec-
tion Day falls on our regular meeting
date, the November meeting will be
held on November 13th, at 6 p.m., in
the Sheriff's Office meeting room.

My professional experience includes teaching varying grade levels and experience in the roles of Guidance Counselor, Staffing Specialist, Coordinator of Early Childhood
Education, and parent. I have the right breadth of experience to understand the needs of students, classroom teachers, administrators, outside agencies, and parents. As
guidance counselor, I assisted parents, teachers, staff, and principals in providing the individualized education and services needed for every student. I worked as an advocate
for all those involved in the education of that child, but most importantly as an advocate for that child, always putting the needs of students first. As a teacher, I understand the
rigorous requirements of the classroom and the obstacles that teachers encounter. As a staffing specialist, I have worked to identify students with special needs and ensure
that .quality education is provided. As the Coordinator for Early Childhood Education, I observe teachers and students and help provide input, resources, and assistance to
implement strategies to promote success. Finally, as a parent, I understand what it's like to want what is best for your child and to need help to ensure your child meets their
goals. If elected, I will work diligently to put children first in the decision-making process. I will lead with dignity and respect, and I will always be accessible for parents and
employees. I want to be YOUR superintendent uniting our schools and communities toward a common goal. Whether Bell or Trenton, elementary or high school, teacher,
parent, or staff -I believe that every person plays a part in the successful future of our children. My goal is to make a difference in the lives of our students, families, teachers, and
community. Together, we can be UNITED for EXCELENCE!

1 am proud to have the endorsement of the Teamsters Local 2011, the union

important investment we can make in our future. I elected, I will advocate.
