Paul Metts plans to move historic May House


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Trenton City Commission
verbally agreed last week to assist
Trenton businessman Paul Metts in
relocating the historic May House.
Metts told the city commissioners
that he plans to move the house to
the back portion of the property he
owns along Main Street, and set
it up behind the Suwannee Valley
Quilt Shoppe.
McDonald's and Family Dollar
are purchasing the property that
fronts State Road 26, between NE
1st and 2nd Street. Currently, Ted
and Pam Burt and First Baptist
Church of Trenton officials are
working with TRC Acquisitions
and Holdings to bring the new
businesses to Trenton.
As Metts pointed out to the
city commissioners, he and his
wife, Stephanie, have already
restored three of Trenton's historic
downtown buildings. Earlier this
year the Suwannee Valley Quilt
Shoppe acquired Dr. May's original
drug store soda fountain counter
and cabinetry and created Happy
Days Old Tyme Soda Fountain in
the restored Coca Cola Bottling
Plant, which currently houses the
Suwannee Valley Quilt Shoppe
and the Suwannee Rose Caf6.
"Progress Energy has been a
major supporter of community
events and would be involved in
moving the May House from its
current location to a new site for
the community to enjoy," Metts
pointed out in his proposal.
Ted Burt informed Metts that
currently the project developer,
TRC Acquisitions & Holdings


Trenton businessman Paul Metts is currently working with Ted and Pam Burt to relocate the historic
May House.


LLC is responsible for the cost to
demolish the May House and remove
the resulting debris from the site,
which has been estimated at a cost of
$20,000. Recognizing the historical
significance of the building, TRC has
pledged $10,000 toward the moving
of the May House.
"I suggest that TRC contribute
this amount to the cost to move the
structure to its new site," Metts said.


"In the past I have heard estimates of
$20,000 +/- to move the house to its
new site."
In agreeing to assist Metts with the
project, the city commission will be
giving City Manager Taylor Brown
the responsibility of negotiating a
zero cost power line management fee
with Progress Energy to coordinate all
necessary electrical line manipulation
during the move. Metts estimated the


cost of power line management for
the move at $15,000 to $20,000.
The renovation and restoration of
the May House will be performed
by Paul and Stephanie Metts, as
owners of the Suwannee Valley
Quilt Shoppe, at an estimated cost
of $50.000 +/-. If everything goes
as planned, Paul and Stephanie
Metts will be new owners of
Trenton's historic May House.


Life in prison for man accused of killing Trenton teen


By Carrie A. Mizell
Circuit Judge Mark Moseley has
sentenced an 18-year-old to life in
prison, with a mandatory sentence of
25 years, for the 2011 shooting death
of Jearicka Mack.
Dontavious Copeland reportedly
showed little emotion during the
sentencing, though his mother is
said to have jumped up and left the
courtroom in tears.
Students at Trenton Middle-High
School mourned the shocking death
of the ninth grade student after she
was shot to death last May outside
a birthday party in Gainesville.
Formerly a resident, of Gainesville,
Jearicka and her younger sister had
moved to Gilchrist County in April
2010 to live with their older sister.
The teenager reportedly attended a
birthday party for Gainesville resident
Jamaal Holmes at the Lions Club,
which is located at 3315 North Main
Terrace in Gainesville. As the party
was breaking up, there was reportedly
an argument in the parking lot. Then
a teenager pulled out a gun and fired


4"


fearicka Mack

a shot into a crowd of people. Despite
rescue workers' efforts to save her
life, the gunshot wound killed 15-
year-old Jearicka.
On Tuesday morning Jearicka's
friends from Trenton High School,
T'Keyha Powell, Khalil Kearson
and Torrez Brown remembered their


Dontavious Copeland

friend with both laughter and tears.
T'Keyha Powell, an llth grade
student at Trenton, recalls the first day
she met Jearicka Mack. At the time,
T'Keyha said she was really shy, but
Jearicka was anything but shy.
"We had almost every class
together, so we really got to be


friends," T'Keyha said.
When she heard Jearicka had been
killed, T'Keyha said she felt broken
hearted.
"It just don't feel right." T'Keyha
said.
As for Copeland, T'Keyha said she
thought Judge Moseley's sentence
was fair, but she wished he had been
sentenced to more time in prison.
"He killed someone who was so
young and innocent," T'Keyha said.
"Her death has affected a lot of
people...It's just not fair."
Trenton Junior Khalil Kearson also
shared classes with Jearicka while
she was a student at Trenton.
"We paid attention a little and
talked a lot!" Khalil recalled with a
laugh.
Khalil was with another one of
Jearicka's friends Torrez Brown
when she heard that Jearicka had
been killed.
"1 didn't believe it at first." Khalil
said. "1 just kept calling her phone
and then when I found out it was true
I felt like half of me was gone."


Khalil cried while talking about the
special friendship she and Jearicka
shared.
"1 know she would want us to keep
going and stay strong for her." Khalil
said. "She would tell us to keep our
heads up."
Torrez Brown recalled hanging
out with Jearicka in their Trenton
neighborhood.
"We didn't have any classes
together at school," Torrez said. "But
she was a really outgoing girl and fun
to be around. You couldn't stay mad
with her for long."
Torrez said it didn't hit him that
Jearicka was really gone until he
attended her funeral in Gainesville.
He was among 700 mourners who
gathered to honor Jearicka's short
life.
"The fact that that many people
showed up for Jearicka shows you
how good of a person she was."
Torrez said.

and pretty smile

Letters to the Editor


The girls, Carrie, Allie Claire and I
had a three day getaway to the Atlanta
area over the weekend.
First, I have to tell you the fall
leaves were perfect throughout the
Atlanta area. We spent pretty much
all day Friday taking in the Country
Living Fair at Stone Mountain. The
various antique, craft and food booths
were located in a wooded area. As
the gentle breezes came through the
beautiful orange, gold and yellow
leaves would float to the ground
covering the park in all the colors of
fall.
We were delighted to run into a
group of friends from Bell as well
as a group from Trenton, it really
is a small world. A small world of
Gilchrist girls having a very good
time.
We enjoyed seeing some wonderful
creations handmade by very talented
people and sampled some very rich
pecan pie and great pumpkin cookies.
After about the first hour Carrie and
I laughed claiming, "We had seen
so much pretty 'til our eyes purely
hurt."
On Saturday before we started
home we stopped by McDonough,
just south of Atlanta and ate at one
of my favorite little cafes in the area,
called the Gritz and shopped in the
courthouse square which is always
fun in most Georgia towns. We visited
a wonderful little shop which gave
us lots of inspiration for Christmas
decorations utilizing burlap and ivory
ribbon. We even found a couple gifts
we just couldn't leave behind.
We then traveled a little south of
Macon near Fort Valley where we
stopped again at Lane's Orchards and
enjoyed their fall festival which was
in full swing. Allie Claire painted a
pumpkin and.enjoyed playing on their
playground. Carrie and I purchased
some pecans fresh from Lane's pecan
grove.
I was impressed with their
operation, they. sell you pick
strawberries in the early spring, then
open their peach orchard in summer
and in the fall they sell pecans. There
were hundreds of young people
enjoying their fall corn maze on
Saturday. Those folks at Lane's have
agri-tourism down to a science. They
had a cafe, bakery, and even sold
homemade ice cream.
I would recommend stopping at
Lane's which is about 10 miles or
so off interstate 75. The drive to the
roadside market is scenic with pecan
groves, cotton fields and freshly
picked peanut fields on both sides of
the road.


By the time you are reading this 1
will have flipped another page on the
old calendar and November will be
underway. Which means 1 only have
three weeks to share Thanksgiving
recipes before the day arrives.
This recipe for corn pudding is
simple and would be so good served
along side your turkey and dressing.
Recipes for corn pudding have been
around since colonial days and
although this recipe is good 1 am
tempted to throw in a couple strips of
crumbled cooked bacon and maybe
a couple green onions minced the
next time I make it. 1 read some
recipes for corn pudding that listed
grated cheese as an ingredient, which
sounded good also.


1 20-ounce package frozen corn
1 cup half and half
3 eggs
2 tablespoons butter, melted
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt ..
Black pepper to taste

Place thawed corn and half and half in
food processor with knife blade and
pulse several times "'until combined
well. Next add eggs, butter, flour,
sugar, salts and pepper. Then pulse
until mixed well. Pour into a well
greased-8x8 baking dish and bake for
55 minutes to 1 hour.
This pudding was traditionally baked
in a water bath which gave it a more
pudding texture. 1 chose to just put it
in the oven and bake without the hot
water bath and it was very good.


Confidential and

Anonymous?!

Attention residents of Gilchrist
County. Are you aware that the words
"confidential" and "anonymous" DO
NOT exist in our Sheriff's Depart-
ment? According to Sheriff Slaugh-
ter, during a meeting with me on
October 22, when 1 asked why there
was no confidentiality, he stated that
if the case went to court I would have
to testify. That is fine and dandy, I
replied, but until then, my informa-
tion should be kept confidential. His
reply, "It don't work that way." This
explains why he seemed unconcerned
when I explained to him that Deputy
Aderholt without actually "giving my
name" insinuated that 1 was the infor-
mant on a case involving juveniles, to
not one, but two, parents who were
trying to find out who reported an in-
cident.
My current employment status
mandates by law that I report any-
thing I see, hear, read, or with justifi-
able feeling to the proper authorities
or 1 can go to jail, and yes, as it was
all hearsay, I am still bound by law
to report it as 1 did on or about Octo-
ber 19, 2012, in regards to a juvenile
under the age of 6 that 1 thought was
in a dangerous situation. Of course
the child's mother became irate, and
wentto the Sheriff's Department, and
while talking to Deputy Aderholt, got
him to play the name game. "Did
first unnamed party do this?" He said
no. "Did second unnamed party do
this?" He said no. "Did Madonna
Spears do this?" At that time there
was no response from Deputy Ader-
holt leading the child's mother to
believe that she had finally guessed
the informant's name. Now that is
pretty simple to figure out, when 1
asked Sheriff Slaughter how this is
acceptable behavior his answer was
"because he didn't actually give your
name and he can't help the fact that
the child's mother figured this out
from these questions." I then asked
Sheriff Slaughter if Deputy Ader-
holt could talk with the mother and
tell her that he didn't mean for her to
draw a conclusion based on her three
questions and that he was sorry if she
took it that way and that he could not
give out that kind of information.
Sheriff Slaughter's response to me.
"1 am not going to ask my deputy to
lie for you!" Howi may 1 ask would
this be a lie unless he intentionally
did not respond when my name was
mentioned'
With elections drawiin near. 1 ask
you, is this how you want your infor-
mation handled b\ our law enforce-
ment? 1 hope not. To the residents of
Gilchrist County, 1 urge you to talk
to the two candidates for the Sheriff's
position and ask the question, is this
how things will be run for the next
four years, or will they also tell you
that their "deputy was caught off
guard?" My question is, how does a
deputy with his years of experience
and his ability to pass the FBI test get
"caught off guard?" But then again,
I called and left a message on his
voicemail to please call me, and as of


October 26th, 1 still have not received
i call from him.
To the candidates for Sheriff that
are out there trying to convince me
and all the other registered voters to
vote for them, I hope that when you
get into office the lirst thing on your
agenda will be training your staff on
confidentiality, that is a REAL word
and when broken it can cause a lot of
pain to the innocent.
My name is Madonna Spears and I
approve this message!

Respect for the

president

I don't recall ever seeing as much
disrespect for the President of the
United States of America as I've
seen displayed for President Barack
Obama. We don't have to like the
President or agree with his policies
but he was voted into office whether
we voted for him or not and like it
or not he is our Commander in Chief.
I feel blessed to live in a country
where we have freedom of the press
and freedom of speech, but what hap-
pened to respect?
While reading the October 25 edi-
tion of the Gilchrist County Journal I
was.reminded of such lack of respect
when I read the article "Viewpoint: 1,
Too, Have Become Disillusioned."
The article is "by Matt Patterson,
a columnist for the Walshinglon
Pos..." While reading the article 1
found it very difficult to believe that
this caliber of article was written by a
columnist for the Washington Post. I
found the article offensive with its af-
firmative action allegations and com-
ments regarding President Obama's
lack of intellect and achievements.
After all, affirmative action did not
put President Obama in to office; he
was elected. And, he must have some
smarts to have made it this far. So, I
decided to research the columnist, the
article and our President's achieve-
ments. This is some of what 1 dis-
covered: 1) this article is an eRumor
that appeared on a conservative web-
site: American Thinker on August 18,
2011. 2) this article did not appear in
the Washington Post. Matt Patterson
"is not employed by the Washington
Post although they have published
his articles but not this one." I also'
discovered that President Obama: 1)
graduated with academic honors from
Punahou Academy, Hawaii; 2) grad-
uated from Occidental College, CA;
3) graduated from Columbia Univer-
sity with a degree in Political Sci-


ence; 4) graduated magna cum laude
from Harvard Law School. While at
Harvard he was elected President of
the Harvard Law Review; 5) accepted
a position as a Visiting Law and Gov-
ernment Fellow at the University of
Chicago Law School to work on his
first book. Then, he taught at the Uni-
versity of Chicago Law School for
twelve years; 6) awarded the Nobel
Peace Prize 2009 "for his extraor-
dinary efforts to strengthen interna-
tional diplomacy and cooperation
between peoples."
Does this sound like someone who
lacks intellect and achievement?
Does this sound like someone who
deserves respect'?

LONG-TIME RESIDENT ROY WILSON

SUPPORTS ROBERT (BOBBY) SCHULTZ

FOR GILCHRIST COUNTY SHERIFF'


























I've been blessed to have lived iii Gilchrist County for many years. And in that time, our county
has faced and overcome a variety of challenges. Unfortunately, our county faces yet another one.
Drugs of every kind have become more prevalent here in our county, and because of drugs we
have seen a rise in other crimes. Burglaries, thefts, destruction of irrigation pivots and other
serious crimes can be linked to drugs.
While I believe both candidates are good men, I believe Bobby Schultz is the most qualified to
lead our county through these challenging times as the next sheriff of Gilchrist County.
Bobby grew up, went to school, and has worked here. IHe is a good family man, and God-
fearing man. I believe Bobby will be easy to talk to and you can trust what he says. I believe his
commitment to our county is undeniable. As a citizen it is important for me to know that the
sheriff of the county has diverse experience in all areas of law enforcement in order to fight the
crime we are seeing.
I ask my friends to join me in voting for Robert (Bobby) Schultz for Gilchrist County Sheriff.

Representative


Government.....


I believe in representative Govern-
ment, the "will of the people". It is
the basis of our free society which
is the envy of the entire world.
This method of fair and free elec-
tions was established so the out-
come in the purest form would
truly be as though the "people had
spoken" one vote- one voice.


Our method of government is built upon the idea of personal
responsibility and thoughtful and deliberate choices. If you
fail to vote the voice of the people is silenced. Your vote is
precious. It is your gift to a free society. On November 6,
after thoughtful and prayerful consideration you make your
choice. Is there anything more personal than that?


My wife, Wanda, and I would like to thank you for your consid-
eration and the time you have spent in reading my articles and
talking to us about the future of the Gilchrist County school
system. We have enjoyed meeting you and getting to know
many of you. It has been a pleasurable and interesting expe-
rience and regardless the outcome, we will continue to serve
our community.


I have a sincere desire to continue to be your representative
and use my knowledge and depth of experience to help the
School Board maintain the standard of excellence it has
achieved. I humbly ask for your vote. -

United for Excellence!


Candidate for

Superintendent of

Gilchrist County

Schools


Why elect Christie McElroy as Superintendent of Schools?

Because she always puts the needs of students first.


To the voters of Gilchrist County:
The Bible gives the perfect definition of love, it says "Love is
patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or
rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful;
it does not rejoice at wrong doing, but rejoices with truth. Love
bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, and endures all
things." (1 Corinthians 13:4-7) This verse exudes what I have seen,
and heard from others, of how my mom conducts herself in every-
thing she does. My mom always thinks about herself last. This is a
good quality to have in a superintendent because as the verse states
above, my mom will not insist on her own way. She will listen to the
ideas of others and carefully guide Gilchrist County Schools and
always put the needs of students first. My brother and 1 graduated
high school with a year of our Associates degree completed and now
we both attend major universities in Florida. We both had the same
driving force behind us, our mom. She bore the burdens when we
thought we could not make it through, believing that although today
might have been a failure, tomorrow we could wake up to start a
fresh day and to try again. She instills confidence in us when we
cannot lift our heads. Finally, she endures all things. The past year
has probably been one of the hardest my mom has ever gone
through, losing her father whom she was very close to, and she
never let any of us fall between the cracks during her suffering, nor
did the Early Childhood Education program fall apart. In fact, the
program has grown in the past year. That says a great deal about
how my mother can lead Gilchrist County. She will be able to
endure through any trial that comes up in her personal or work life
and turn it into a positive growing experience for the County.
When I think about how a school system should work, I feel the
dynamics are very similar to that of which a family is run. When we
were little, mom helped with all the "behind the scenes" type work
and gave us the credit, letting us shine and grow. This is how she
wishes to run the schools. She wants to give the principals, teachers,
and students all the tools needed so she can step back and let them
shine. All my life, all I have seen my mom do is be a mom. And I
recognize the oddness in the statement, but it's true. She accepts
warmly any one as they appear, no strings attached. My mother can
develop a bond with any parent, teacher, or student faster than
anyone I have ever met. Somehow, I think by intuition, she just
knows what to say to comfort anyone in distress. She has a way to
instill confidence in students who do not feel they are going to make
it to graduation day. I know of many students who have come back
after 5 years and thanked my mother again for encouraging, tutor-
ing, and believing in them to meet that final push to graduation or to
further their education at college or technical school. Each school
would be like an adopted child to look after and care for. Just as she
has done with every other kid who has walked through her doors,
she will treat each school as her own and seek to raise it with the
values and fundamentals that a school should have to give every
child a pathway to success. I can't think of a better person you
would want to lead Gilchrist County Schools. She loves, guides, and
is consistently wonderful with everyone she encounters.
Mom has always worked hard to accomplish goals and help those
around her be successful. Through her experiences, she has worked
hard, learned to empower people around her so that success can be
attained, and most importantly, to "not sweat the small stuff." I
think these are all good qualities to have in a superintendent.
Because while, if elected, my mom would be "captain of the ship"
she realizes the schools would not be successful without every
single employee doing their part to help keep education the goal and
the students the first priority.
We joke that my mother is the defender of the universe; meaning
she sees the good and positive in everything. I know she will always
go to bat for the children of Gilchrist County. She has always said to
us, "If everyone would stop looking at the inconveniences and seek
to identify the needs of the child, there would be no question as to
what actions need to take place." Now I say to you, if you look at the
change in direction needed in Gilchrist County Schools to reestab-
lish strong educational goals, there would be no question who to
vote for Superintendent of Schools, my mom, Christie McElroy.
.Alyssa McElroy


To the registered voters in Gilchrist
County,
In today struggling economy, education is a
crucial component; it is the one thing that
cannot be taken from our children. Educating
the youth should be a passion; something one
doesn't do for selfish reasons. Superintendent
of Schools is not a social title or ranking; it's
about educating the youth and allowing them
the opportunity to strive for excellence. Fur-
thermore, education teaches a child prepara-
tion, which is a crucial component for success.
However, success is relative and having an
education will give our children a foundation
on which to build and be successful.
From a young age, my mother stressed the
importance of education. Every young child
has some type of dream, goal, or ideal profes-
sion they desire to achieve when they grow
older. My mother revealed to me with a good
education dreams are limitless. Education is
your child's avenue to success and my mother
knows how to direct the youth of Gilchrist
County. It is critical to instill a love for learn-
ing at a young age and my mother is more than
capable of accomplishing this objective. I
understand school may not be for everyone but
the love for learning and the desire to further
education, in whatever profession your child
chooses to pursue, is imperative.
Political races are sometimes won on the basis
of name recognition or past offices held. When
it comes to education, is this really the standard
we want to set when electing an individual to
direct our youth, the future of Gilchrist
County? My mothers' passion for education is
unparalleled and her drive to make sure every
child finds their way is supreme. Along with
her passion you will find patience, prudence,
and the willingness to go the extra mile in order
to help any and every child succeed. Looking
back to my youth, my mother never failed to
make me feel like I was capable of accomplish-
ing anything I set my mind to. She is the
primary factor in the success I have had thus far
in life and without a doubt I can assure you, if
my mother is elected, your child will be
exposed to the necessary resources required for
success.
If anything were to persuade you to elect my
mother, Christie McElroy for Superintendent
of Schools, it should be her body of work she
has compiled over years in the teaching profes-
sion. It starts with her own education: a
master's degree in school counseling for grades
PK-12. In addition to her education, she has
several years' experience in the classroom, as a
guidance counselor, and finally in the school
board office where she holds the title of
Gilchrist County District's Early Childhood
Education Coordinator. I am a firm believer in
my mother as she has directed both of her chil-
dren to major universities, supported her chil-
dren no matter the circumstance, and never
fails to make me proud to be the son of such a
Godly, passionate, caring woman. Allow her to
renew the appetite of children for knowledge
by electing her as the Superintendent of
Schools in Gilchrist County.
Sincerely,
Brandon McElroy


To the Citizens of Gilchrist County:
My wife is seeking the office of Superintendent of
Schools for Gilchrist County. I would like to intro-
duce you to Christie as a wife, mother and profes-
sional.
Proverbs 31:10 reads, "Who can find a virtuous
wife? For her worth is far above rubies". First and
foremost Christie is a Christian. Her love for the
Lord was one attribute that attracted me the most as
we met some 25 years ago. In my eyes her outward
beauty was overshadowed by her inner beauty. I
love Christie dearly and cannot imagine going
through this life without her by my side. She is
more than my soul mate, she truly completes me and
I'm a much better person because she's in my life.
Christie is my best friend, my lover and the mother
of our children.
The second attribute that attracted me was her love
for children. This love was apparent long before we
were married. There was something unique about
how she and children interacted; it was as if they
were drawn to her and she to them. Our home was
blessed with two wonderful children, Brandon and
Alyssa. Both began Kindergarten and graduated
high school here in Gilchrist County. Our children
were far from perfect, each having their own
struggles and adolescent issues to contend with and
battle. Their mother was always by their side lead-
ing, guiding, listening, instructing, and providing
unconditional love, even in the most difficult of
times. She was and is their best advocate and cheer-
leader, still guiding and encouraging, as they have
left home to pursue post-secondary degrees from
major Florida universities. She has always been a
role model for our children, exemplifying qualities
of honesty, integrity and always doing what is right.
Christie stands on principle, and I am so blessed that
she instilled these attributes in our children from a
very early age.
Professionally Christie has excelled as well. She's
been a teacher of numerous grade levels, guidance
counselor and now coordinator of Early Childhood
Education. Once again her love for children shines
through as she has been actively involved in the
development of students for over fifteen years. She
has taught, encouraged and helped many students
succeed and become productive adults. As a mother
she understands the importance of advocating for
your child and making sure the needs of your child
are met. As parents we are to be the voice of our
children and help them get what they need to be
successful. As an administrator she will listen to the
faculty, staff, administration and parents to ensure
our school system is united and providing for the
needs of our students. Christie understands the
importance of education, and that children need to
be prepared at each level, eventually entering the
workforce as productive citizens. She will always
strive to put the needs of students first and lead the
district with honesty, integrity and respect. A vote
for Christie McElroy is a vote for the children of
Gilchrist County.

Hart Springs
Please accept this quick note as my
thanks for printing the Letters to the
Editor regarding Hart Springs.
I still remember my first trip to
Hart Springs. It was in August 1960,
1 was three years old. The teachers
had a dinner before school started at
the springs and that is where I met
Lucy Coleman. When the speeches
got long and the girls got squirmy,
our daddies took us outside and
walked us around the springs. It was
a moonlit night, so tranquil and love-
ly. It was the beginning of my Dad
and O.J. Coleman's long friendship.


Letters to the Editor


I fondly remember your Dad taking
Elizabeth, you and 1 swimming there
as children. We might have been live.
Elizabeth taught me how to dive that
day! It's another beautiful memory of
the springs.
For Easter weekend 2011, we
stayed at IHart Springs House after
reading the inviting article by Carrie
in the ,Jonriinl.
The house was very nice and we
had a few suggestions, such as a trash
box like they use in the mountains to
keep the critters out. We had a very
nice time. The house, the springs, and

For Gilchrist County School Board District 2
Political Advertisement paid for and approved by Matthew Rexroat NP for Gilchrist County School Board District 2


The Role of the Sheriff in the Community

The Sheriff serves many roles in the community. First
and foremost the sheriff works daily to keep the
streets and neighborhoods safe. They have a
constant focus on pursuing criminals and removing
them from the streets and also preventing crimes
from occurring. For 27 years this has been my focus,
protecting the citizens that I serve.

A Sheriff also has to protect and preserve the
constitutional rights of the citizens they are elected to
serve. I am a constitutional conservative. I will ensure
that all of your God-given and constitutional rights are
protected and that you will be allowed to freely live
your lives without harassment or without any agency
intruding upon them.

But a Sheriff has more to do than fight crime. A
sheriff should be a person with long standing ties to
the community that they are seeking to serve. The
sheriff should be someone who has built trust with
the public. The sheriff should be a person deeply
involved with the community. The sheriff also serves
as a role model and a mentor for the youth in the
community. The person elected sheriff needs to be a
person who is approachable; someone that all
citizens can come to with a problem. The sheriff
needs to be someone who people feel comfortable
with speaking to in confidence.

For over 20 years I have been an active member in
various civic and youth organizations in Gilchrist
County. I am proud to say that I have not waited until
election season to become active in the community.
Community involvement, especially at the youth level,
is a large part of me. I love this community where I
call home and it would be an absolute honor to serve


and protect my home.

the park were in excellent condition.
My granddaughter, S'wanne Wren
Walker, loved it, as did her little cous-
ins. Oh, yes sir, we killed the house to
thle brim with family and truly had a
good lilme. I promised to send a letter
to you after our visit but life got in
the way and I didn't. In fact, I was a
little afraid that if I bragged about the
springs too much that we wouldn't
be able to get our big toe in when we
went back.
While there are lots of springs that
feed into the Suwannee River, Hart
Springs is the absolute best. You see
we rented a boat that long week-
end and visited a whole lot of other
springs. While Manatee Springs
didn't look as big as I remembered
it, Hart Springs had been well main-
tained. The staff and Mitchell Gentry
were wonderful even when we threw
them a curve ball by bringing two


('oftlii/ltcdi /)on I gc4 -I

Please allow me to tell the naysay-
ers to be thankful ior Hart Springs,
fori the pristine nature of the park and
lir ihe wonderful people who work
there. Please give our love to your
entire family lotr the good, hard work
every week. And John, please know
that it is appreciated more than you
will ever know for it makes us all
think of our wonderful memories of
Hart Springs and beautiful Gilchrist
County.
Love Always,
Paula Dempsey Nunnery
P.S. My daughter reminded us that
Mitchell loaned us two rocking chairs
from his own home while we were
there. We had two babies and a two-
year-old with us. I don't know how
we would have done it without them.

Jfeart 5/atters


What is your "if only" sentence at
this point in your life? Think about
it for a minute: have you recently
thought or said. "If only 1 could
'"' We could lill in the blank
with our own situation and/or one of
the following: "If only 1 could...lin-
-ish school...get a job/different job...
recover from an injury/illness...buy
a house...get out of debt...find a hus-
band/wife...have children...get my
children raised." Then life would be
just how 1 wanted and I could rest...
right?
In Exodus 2:23, we get a glimpse
of the suffering of the children of
Israel in Egypt and, their "if only":
"The Israelites groaned in their slav-
ery and cried out, and their cry for
help because of their slavery went
up to God." The English Standard
Version says it this way: "Their cry
for rescue from slavery came up to
God." Do you hear the "if only" loud
and clear? Rescue us from this situa-
tion!! According to the next two vers-
es, "God heard their groaning and he
remembered his covenant with Abra-
ham, with Isaac and with Jacob. So
God looked on the Israelites and was
concerned about them." The next
chapter begins to unfold God's rescue
mission through the life of Moses.
Let's stop here for a quick evalu-
ation: Were the Israelites wrong to
ask for deliverance? Should they just
have accepted their lot and strived
to be good slaves? Absolutely not!
They were chosen by God to be His
people...not Pharaoh's. However, be
careful to notice that His rescue was
prompted by the memory of His cov-
enant, not their struggle, and the plan
would develop according to His pur-
poses, not their comfort. 1-erein lies
the rub. After a host of plagues and
miracles, Exodus 14 gives a detailed
account of the Israelites' rescue.
Pharaoh's change of heart results in
a crunch between the most powerful


army on earth and the Red Sea...and
the "if only" quickly changes: "As
Pharaoh approached, the Israelites
looked up and there were the Egyp-
tians marching after them. They were
terrified and cried out to the Lord.
They said to Moses, "...Didn't we
say to you in Egypt, 'Leave us alone:
let us serve the Egyptians'? It would
have been better for us to serve the
Egyptians than to die in the desert!"
(Exodus 14:10-12) Say what?? Now


the problem with"focusing solely on
our "if only's" becomes clear. Do we
want the "if only" to happen only if it
is easier and more comfortable than
where we are now". Often we can't
see the \w ork that even good things
bring into our lives until they happen.
A new house...has payments and up-
keep. Getting married...can mean
learning to live with someone who
has some really weird habits. Hav-
ing children...lmeans your life totally

The Spring Ridge VFD thanks all
military veterans for their service as

fee and juice. As usual, the cost for
the breakfast will be a donation to the

your neighbors. See you on the first
Saturday of November (and every

Nothing wrong with wanting any of
these, but they will not bring rest into

Political adveltisement paid and approved by John Rance Thomas, for Gilchrist County Commissioner District 4 (D)


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 better job. 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 I help the customer?",
not "How can I 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 II. Smith
Bell Concrete Products

THS celebrates Red Ribbon Week


Trace Lander, Alanna Tatoris and MAandy NesSmith are pictured with "Stomp Out Bullying" banner.


Submitted
Trenton High School spent all of
last week celebrating Red Ribbon
Week.
The Red Ribbon Campaign was
started when drug traffickers in
Mexico City murdered DEA agent
Kiki Camarena in 1985. This began
the continuing tradition of display-
ing Red Ribbons as a symbol of in-
tolerance towards the use of drugs.
The mission of the Red Ribbon
Campaign is to present a unified and
visible commitment towards the cre-
ation of a DRUG-FREE AMERICA.
On Monday students placed cups in
the fence making the statement "THS
is Drug Free." All students received
pencils from our School Resource
Officer, Deputy CJ with a drug free
statement on them. These were pro-
vided by Sheriff Slaughter. Students
also heard from Tracy Decubellis,
Gilchrist County SWAT Director,
about tobacco prevention. On Tues-
day, everyone wore blue shirts and
boots in support of bully prevention.
Our art classes made posters to dis-
play around the school.
Students signed a "Stomp Out Bul-
lying Pledge" during lunch to create
a big blue banner. Students were
also encouraged to sit with a differ-
ent group. On Wednesday, everyone
wore red in support of Red Ribbon
Week. Student Government tied red

ribbons to all the car antennas. The
Army National Guard passed out red
lanyards to students during lunch.
On Thursday, the Army provided
dog tags to students after they signed
a drug free pledge. The dog tags had
a drug free message imprinted.
On Friday, AHEC spoke to middle
school students about the effects of


tobacco use. Students "teamed up
against drugs." They came decked
out in orange and black to support
their favorite Tiger team.
Each day of Red Ribbon Week
students listened to our THS Seniors
share personal reasons why they
support a drug free community and
school.


Trenton Quarterback Club will

Jones artificially
inseminates cows
Submitted
Trenton Middle-High School stu-
dents Erin Jones and Austin Polk are
now certified to artificially insemi-
nate (AI) beef and dairy cattle.
Jones, who completed AI school
over the summer, artificially insemi-
nated cows at the Trenton Agriculture
Department on Friday, explained FFA
Advisor Heather Rucker.
Along with AI, Jones can preg-
nancy check (palpate), give hormone
shots (to get the females ready to
breed and synchronize them) and
breed the cows artificially.
Steve Broker's biotechnology
class pulled all of the semen straws
from the semen tank that are stored in
the agriculture shop and researched
which bulls would benefit the fe-
males according to birth weight and
other characteristics.
In all, four cows and two heifers
were bred to top quality show stock.
According to Rucker, Austin Polk
took an AI class last Thursday and
Friday and is now certified as well.
"It is pretty neat that we have two
students that are now certified to AI
and can do this as a business," Ruck-
er said.

Dear Voters of Gilchrist County,
The election is upon us. Absentee voting and early voting has ,
been, and continues to go on. If you voted for me I am humbled
and thank you very much. November 6, election day is coming
up. My hope and prayer is that each and every registered voter has .
researched all the candidates and will vote for the person they
believe will best serve the residents of Gilchrist County in the
future.
I have visited as many residents as I could.to ask for your vote
and tell you why I am the best candidate for your next Tax Collec-
tor. Unfortunately I have missed some but I hope you have seen
my ads in the paper, received my mailers, or you can still find
your answers by going to my website (www.vote4tommy.net), the Supervisor ofElections website (
VoteGilchrist.com) or call me at 352-222-4821.
Several employees in the office are State Certified, this will allow me to take office with a flawless
transition. 1 will become certified as soon as possible. I've been told the total cost is around $2,000.00,
1 will gladly pay for it, no cost to the tax payer. I have never submitted an invoice for reimbursement
to the county and 1 will continue to honor that. Some in the office now, are on the state retirement
program (DROP). This will mean some new employees in the future, if elected they will be cross-
trained to allow each employee to wait on anyone that needs service, at any desk, whether it be tags,
taxes, licensees, etc. :
1 am not looking for retirement. Twill be your Tax Collector as long as the residets so desire.
I believe you will find me well qualified, experienced, honest, and hard working. As your next Tax-
Collector I will provide a friendly, professional, innovative and friendly customer service driven
office.
I will always be looking for new technology and ways to cut cost and save you, the tax payer money.
I have leadership skills, managed and worked employees. Budget experience, and worked with
legislators who pass the Florida Statutes and Laws.
I am dedicated to the community in supporting and giving back, all the time not just in an election
year. I give a $2,500.00 scholarship to a graduating senior every year. I have become a member and
supported many local organizations and will continue to do so. My working hours will be more than
8-5 in the Tax Collectors office.
1 now ask you to make sure you vote. I humbly ask you to vote for Tommy Langford to be your
next Tax Collector in Gilchrist County. Thank you in advance for your consideration.


Vote for the future of Gilchrist County!

Letter of Endorsement

To the Residents of Gilchrist County,
My name is Michael Daniels and I am writing this letter concerning the
race for Sheriff in our county.
First let me tell you that I am a 28 year retired police officer. During that
time I was involved in every aspect of police work. As a homeowner in
Gilchrist County it is very important to me that we elect the right candidate
for this very important job.
After thoroughly researching each candidate let me assure you that Robert
Roux is the most qualified candidate. He has deep ties to our community,
has shown dedication to his profession with his 27 years of law enforcement
experience. He has extensive up to date training with his department. He is
willing under the "Mutual Aid Pac" to bring in additional help from other
agencies to assist during natural disasters or, if needed, to combat street
level crimes, organized crime or whatever the situation calls for. Mr. Roux
has shown to me not only his capability for this very important job, but that
he has the most experience covering all aspects of law enforcement which
the other candidate just doesn't have.
For this reason I am endorsing Mr. Robert Roux for Sheriff of Gilchrist
County. I hope that you will take the time to come out and vote for Mr.
Roux on Tuesday, November 6th.

TO THE CITIZENS OF GILCHRIST COUNTY:

WHY VOTE FOR MY DADDY, FOR SHERIFF?
*EXPERIENCED
My daddy has 27 years of.fill time experience. He worked two years at the sheriffs office and twenty-five years
as a state trooper. His experience includes working drug cases, investigations, auto theft and lots more. He also has
administrative and budgeting skills, as he has overseen and helped my brothers and me in starting and running our
own business, Krazy Deer, Inc.
*VESTED INTEREST IN THE COMMUNITY
My parents could have chosen anywhere in the Slate of Florida to raise me and my brothers, but 1 am proud to say
my parents chose this great county to call home and raise a family here. 1 am proud to say I have lived every day of
my life in Gilchrist. Not only do we live here, but we worship, attend school, and even shop.
*CARES ABOUT THE COMMUNITY
My dad has always had a great love and concern for Gilchrist County and the people who live here. An example
is activies for the youth. When I was 5, my daddy and Mr. Kenny started the tackle football program at SVL. WHY?
I wasn't for recognition. If you ask anyone how the program got started only close friends can tell you. It was out of
a concern for the youth to have activities. Look what the football and cheer program have turned into, because some-
one cared about the youth in the community.
*VETERAN
1 am proud that my daddy served in the United States Army as a military police officer and served our county in
the Gulf War. My daddy, along with other veterans, helped to assure
that I can grow up in a free county with my constitutional rights and
freedom.
You may ask why I wrote this. Well I can't vote for my daddy in
this election and by writing this I hope that you will see my dadd as i
the best man for lthe job for sheril of G ilchirist County. On Novein-
ber 6, VOTE ROUX FOR SHERIFF.
Sincerely,
Kailey Roux

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.

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.

broader rights to an abortion than those contained

State Government Revenue Limitation
This proposed amendment to the State

FWC recovers

stolen hunting

equipment

Hunting equipment stolen in Union
County recently was rapidly recov-
ered by Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
officers. A Union County hunter re-
ported that his climbing tree stand,
game camera and feeder had been
taken from his hunt lease in the Prov-
idence area. The total value of items
was more' than $500. FWC officers
Bret Gill and Joseph Johnston went
to the lease where the items had been
stolen and were able to develop a
lead by examining physical evidence
in the vicinity of the hunt lease. The
officers' investigation-led to a nearby
residence, where the occupants ini-
tially denied any knowledge of the
theft. After confronting the two men
with the evidence gathered, William
Franklin Osteen (DOB 11/11/80)
and Wayne Alan Dickson (DOB
03/04/86) confessed to stealing the
hunting equipment.
"Mr. Dickson stated he had taken a
feeder from the hunter's lease," John-
ston said. Dickson stated a friend had
the game camera and climbing stand.
The officers were able to recover
those items in Lake Butler.
"The camera and climbing stand
had been sold for $150," Johnston
said. "The victim was able to posi-
tively identify the items as his prop-
erty, and they were returned to him."
The two men are being charged
with grand theft, dealing in stolen
property, and trespass.

To The Citizens of Gilchrist County: *

Soon, the citizens will have their voice heard as to who will be the next sheriff of Gilchrist County. Much has been debated and dis-
cussed about who will be the best fit for the job. It is my opinion that both my opponent and I have done an effective job at getting
our qualifications, plans, and experience out to the public for consideration. And while there are a few similarities, there are some
clear differences.

The following is a list of experience I have that I believe separates me from my opponent:
Law Enforcement Supervisory Experience
Small Business Experience
Deputy Sheriff and City Patrolman Experience

Criminal Investigations Experience for a Sheriff's Office and Police Department
Judicial Investigative Experience: State Attorney's & Public Defender's Offices
International police training experience during "Operation Enduring Freedom"
Currently certified as a both a Correctional Officer and Law Enforcement Officer

Supervising, Investigating and solving such crimes as Death Investigations (Non-Traffic), Residential and Business Burglaries, Home Invasions,
Agriculture Crimes, Crimes Against the Elderly and Children, Arson, and others


Among other issues, I am committed to the following:
* Being a Constitutional Sheriff, Protecting and Defending your Constitutional Rights.
.* Enhancing the Professionalism, Efficiency, and Effectiveness of the Sheriffs Office through the principles of Consistency, Accountability,
Training and Experienced Leadership.
Aggressively investigate and arrest those individuals that choose to poison our county with the sale of illegal narcotics and other criminal activity.
Aggressively review and investigate unsolved homicide cases.
Placing additional School Resource Deputies in our schools.

Enhancing communication between the Sheriff's Office and communities.
Reducing response times to calls for service by implementing proactive initiatives, and utilizing all sworn personnel.

Utilize close working relationships with local, state, and federal agencies.


I have made no promises during this campaign other than this; I will be consistent with
everyone, our office will be accountable, and 1 will provide experienced leadership. No one
will be more committed or work harder to protect you, your family's lives, your property and
your Constitutional rights.


Thank you for your consideration and God Bless,
Robert (Bobby) Schultz

The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, Oct. 25th, at the Levy County Quilt
Museum. Our Northern friends are beginning to return to join us for the next
few months.* We've missed visiting with them. Welcome home.
Several ladies from the area have volunteered to judge quilts and other
items at the State Fair in February. This is one of the things that Winnelle did
every year. With her birthday coming up on November 6th, we are thankful
for the many things she did that we've discovered now that she's gone.
The Quilt Show will start the day after Thanksgiving. We'll start taking in
items in November. In the past craftors in the area have brought in their work
for this event and we hope they will be back with us this year. There is just
something special about a handmade item.
We are open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., and
would love to have you visit with us. The swings on the porch are a great way
to sit back and relax for a little while.

bers will get to view and vote on these during the November meeting. The
top three will be picked and an award will be given during the guild's annual
Christmas party.
Even though the guild is closing out the 2012 year, plans are being made
for 2013 projects. New officers have been elected with Kathy Beaulieu of
Bronson becoming the new President on January 1, 2013. Springhouse will
offer beginner classes to new members beginning in January.
Mary Rawlins with her appointed planning group is making plans for the
upcoming annual Christmas Party. This is always a fun night with lots of
quilting friends sharing a great evening of fun, food and fellowship. So
many friendships are created between quilters and this gives them a time to
share a fun time together.
For information on Springhouse Quilters, contact Lois Scott, 463-2207.

Five Steps To Destruction
(Kent 1 Icaton)


As God renewed the covenant with Israel in the land of
Moab. He gave the people a choice of blessing or cursing
(Deuteronomy 29-30). If they would love the Lord, walk in
His ways. keep His commandments, statutes, and
judgments then the Lord would bless them. Then tie says,
"But if your heart turns away so that you do not hear,
and are drawn away, and worship other gods and serve
them, I announce to you today that you shall surely
perish" (Deuteronomy 30:17-18a). When people reject the
Lord they follow the five steps outlined in this passage.
The heart is the first thing that is turned away. The wise
man said. "Keep your heart with all diligence, for out ofit
spring the issues of life" (Proverbs 4:23). Jesus taught the
heart is like soil that is either hardened with sin, filled with
stones that rob nutrition, crowded out with the cares of the
world and deceitful desire for riches or the good ground
who hears the word of God and understands it growing
thereby (Matthew 13). The heart is the first thing Satan
seeks to destroy (Acts 5:3) and if he can gain control of the
heart then he will have his way.
When the heart is hardened then the ears become dull of
hearing. Desire comes from the heart and as the heart turns
away from God the ears no longer want to seek the will of
God. Paul warned Timothy of those who would "not
endure sound doctrine, but according to their own
desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up
for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears
away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables" (2
Timothy 4:3-4). Even at this stage many go through the
motions of worship but their heart is far from God because
their ears are closed (Matthew 15:8).


As the heart hardens and the ears close the feet begin to
draw away from God. This is a progressive action as the
psalmist described. "Blessed is the man w/ho walks not in
the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of
sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornifl" (Psalms 1:1).
Drawing away Ironm God goes from walking g to standing to
sitting with Satan. This'drawing a\\a\ takes place in the
heart. "But each one is tempted whenn he is drawn awa' hby
his own desires and enticed. Then, wiheit desire has
conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is
fill-grown, brings forth death "(James 1:14-15).
The final two stages happen because the heart no longer
seeks holiness or the cars righteousness and the feet \walk
after other gods. Jehovah God is not the object of worship
as man begins to reverence himself and his own desires.
Worship is the focus we manifest in our lives and the object
of our worship is where we find our service. The final stage
of destruction is when man serves his own needs and
desires rejecting the will of God (Romans 1:16-32: Luke
21:34).
The gods we worship are not carved in stone but in our
hearts. Our love is for this world and the charms of
temptation that 111il our lives with useless pursuits. Some
gods' are good in and olf themselves but they are evil gods
because they keep our hearts from serving the Lord.
Sometimes Satan destroys us not with immorality but with
the trinkets of life that keep our eyes olT of Jesus. What
destroyed the third soil in the parable of the sower was the
"desiresfor other things" (Mark 4:19). There are five steps
to destruction and only way for salvation (John 14:6).
Which way are you headed?

Pam Saucier

becomes Haven

Hospice Senior

Vice President

and Chief

Operating

Officer

Submitted
Pam Saucier has been named Ha-
ven Hospice Senior Vice President
and Chief Operating Officer. Until
most recently, Saucier has served as
vice president at Merrimack Valley
Hospice in Massachusetts.
Saucier has extensive experience
within the hospice industry having
been with Alive Hospice in Nashville
for 14 years from 1992-2004 and
with Merrimack Valley Hospice from
2004 until joining Haven. Her past 22
years of hospice experience ranges
from direct patient care to executive
management and leadership.
Saucier is a registered nurse by
training, having received her BSN
from the Vanderbilt School of Nurs-
ing. In addition she has an MBA
from Belmont University. She is ac-
tively involved on a number of the
National Hospice and Palliative Care
Organization (NHPCO) committees,
a member of the professional/techni-
cal advisory committee of the Joint
Commission on the Accreditation of
Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO).
Also, she had, until assuming her
new role at Haven, served as presi-
dent of the Massachusetts Federation
of Hospice and Palliative Care.
"I am excited about joining the
team at Haven Hospice," she said.
"Haven has an excellent reputation
across the country when it comes to
patient care and family support. I am
looking forward to being part of the
team of people who have established
that reputation."
Haven President Tim Bowen said-
bringing Saucier to the organization
will enable it to continue to fulfill its
mission of providing comfort, care
and compassion to patients and fami-
lies.
"Pam brings great experience and
will help provide executive leader-
ship as we continue to grow and ex-
pand our commitment to those we are
honored and privileged to serve," he
said. "I am looking forward to work-
ing with her."


Progress Energy Storm Tips


If the power goes out:
Keep refrigerator and freezer doors
closed. Food usually stays frozen
about 48 hours. A refrigerator can
keep food cold for about four hours.
Remember, when in doubt, throw it
out.
Do not connect a generator directly
to your home's electrical system. It is
dangerous to you, your neighbors and


utility workers. Follow manufactur-
er's directions regarding connecting
appliances directly to your generator.
In any power outage, utility crews
restore service as quickly as possible,
starting with the largest lines serving
the most people.

Area residents gathered last Thurs-
day evening to enjoy dinner and hear
testimonials from people who have
overcome addiction at Grace Minis-
try's 2012 Freedom Banquet.
Held at the Spring House at Otter
Springs Park, the Freedom Banquet
drew a large crowd of people, all
interested in supporting Kevin and
Nina Craven's Bell-based ministry.
According to Nina, a silent auction
was held that raised $3,000 for the
couple's ministry. The monies gen-
erated from the auction of 45 items
will be used to help pay off Grace
Ministry's van.
"It was an amazing night!" Nina
said.
The Cravens gave out a number
of awards at the banquet, including
a Humanitarian of the Year Award
to Mark and Lee Gluckman. Sharon
Langford was given the Hope and Fu-


ture Award. Dellane Chason earned
the Volunteer of the Year Award. Sev-
eral other people were recognized for
their efforts, including Stanley Do-
buzinsky, Kathy Akins, Yvonne Mar-
ley, Kimberly Patterson, and Jeremy
Marley.
Grace Ministries is a 501 (C)(3)
non-profit Christian organization that
operates solely to help people break
free of strongholds so that they might
live happy, peaceful and productive
lives, giving back to the community
they live in with their newfound love
of Christ.
Not only do the Cravens operate a
recovery home for men in Gilchrist
County, but they also run a very pop-
ular thrift store, that is located behind
Akins BBQ at 3249 W. Railroad Lane
in Bell.
For more information on Grace
Ministry visit 463-8700.

A big thank you

from Dixie L

Music Center --
Our 21st AnniNersary bash was a
great success and we couldn't have
done without the help of so many
people who we'd really like to take
the time to mention.
The grounds were exceptionally
beautiful this year and we'd like to
thank Fred Carpenter for his hard
work and Ed Stoner for his help. Jim-
my'Norris, of Section 8 Band, went
above and beyond coming in Friday
afternoon before the show and help-
ing with the prep work then arriving
first thing Saturday morning to help
with set-up and sound. He stayed all
day and was invaluable in helping the
bands.on and off the stage. Donny and
Marcy Conlin, also of Section 8 band,
donated some extra sound reinforce-
ment, which we needed and greatly
appreciated. Also arriving early were
Korey Griner and Quinton Sims. Al-
though Korey had to leave, Quinton
stayed all day and helped at the stage.
Our friend Human Bill helped with
set up and ran sound all day doing a
fabulous job. His son-in-law, Albert,
also came early and was ready to help
wherever he was needed. Brittany
and Rebecca Strickland helped out
at the registration table, along with
Blake Apodoca, while their moms,
Brenda Strickland and Claudia Cal-
houn helped out inside the store man-
ning the counters and phones. They B
are our "dream team" and we are
so grateful for their hard work. The
COPS organization took over park-
ing, helping everyone get where they
needed to be. This organization does
so much work in this community and
we truly thank them for their help.
Steve Felty is to be thanked for again
supplying traffic cones and barrels.
Albert and Julie Squires once again
allowed us the use of their property
for parking, so a big shout out to our
friends for their generosity.
What would the anniversary bash
be without live music and we want to
thank this year's entertainers: Home-
ward Bound, Houston Keen, Big Cv-
press Bluegrass, Steel Rodeo, Steel
Bridge and The Slackers. All of these
bands donate' their time and talent
and we greatly appreciate them all.
We also want to thank this fine
publication for all the pre-event ex-
posure. So many who attended "read
about it in the paper" so we thank you
so much for helping us get the word
out. Mostly, though we thank all of
you for supporting us for 21 years.
None of this is possible without all of
you and we are so grateful for all of
your support!
We look forward to next year's
22nd Anniversary Bash and hope to
see you there!

SConcerned Citizens for a Better High
Springs in an effort to effect good
policy decisions by local government.
This newly formed nonpartisan, non-
Spolitical group hopes to effect posi-
tive change through education and
advocacy for better policy decisions
by elected officials, utilizing existing
governance structures and creating
new policies to improve the wellbe-
ing of the City of High Springs.
According to local resident, John
P. Manley, III, one of the initial orga-
nizers of the group, "We hope to put
before the Citizens of High Springs
a series of goals for the management
and administration of the City to re-
turn it to a balanced, financially vi-
able operation. Additionally, we wish
to promote the City Administration as
a pro-active catalyst for serving the
people and move the City to reach its
highest and best potential. We wish
to create an environment of appre-
ciation and initiative that works to re-
build the once strong morale amongst
the City Staff so they can continue to


serve the Citizens with the distinc-
tion for friendliness and service they
have always had. Finally, we wish to
incorporate those near term goals for
stabilizing the City into a component
of a broader landscape that paints a
future picture of the City that all the
townspeople can embrace; and work
together to accomplish. We want our
town to be the kind of town that our
children hope to remain in to start
their families and raise their chil-
dren."
The group's mission statement
reads, "Concerned Citizens for a
Better High Springs supports a lo-
cal government with professional
management that provides leader-
ship, accountability and vision for
our future."
The group developed four Guiding


Principles that it is using to educate
the community and will offer policy
recommendations on these issues:
This commitment must encompass
relations with government entities at
all levels, with the City's staff, with
business owners, with the public-at-
large, with the media, and most of all
with its own citizens.
Concerned Citizens for a Better
High Springs is looking for local
residents, business owners and oth-
ers invested in and supportive of its
goals.

Tigers dominate Hilliard in clinching District 6 1A title


By John M. Ayers
The undefeated Trenton Tigers
clinched the District 6 IA title Friday
night by completely dominating the
visiting Hilliard Flashes 49-6. Coach
Andrew Thomas took his hat off to the
Tigers congratulating the DISTRICT
CHAMPS when they came together
following the game. "You guys are
No. I," as the team stood together at
midfield. "We have accomplished our
first goal, but we have two games left
and one of those is a rivalry game on
November 9th," Thomas explained.
This night belonged to the Trenton
Tiger football team which is now 8-0.
The Tigers continued celebrating as
the team moved to the home sideline
to listen as the singing of the THS
Alma Mater in front of a capacity
crowd of fans.
Trenton's Stephen Smith completed
6 of 10 passes for 114 yards and 2
touchdowns. The junior quarterback
connected with a brother, senior
Michael Smith on a 30-yard pass


for a score. Smith also completed
a 39-yard pass to freshman Hamp
Cheevers as he went untouched in to
the end zone. Stephen Smith got the
Tigers' scoring started as he dashed
into the end zone behind a strong
front line on the Tigers' first offensive
possession. The Tigers capitalized on
a Flashes' fumble as freshman Kade
Rogers recovered the loose ball for
the Tigers inside the Flashes' 50-
yard line. Smith marched the Tigers
down to the 22-yard line where they
faced a fourth down and 1 yard for
the first. Trenton's senior, leading
running back, Cedric Stokes took the
handoff and disappeared through a
gaping hole and went untouched for
a second Tiger score. The Tigers held
a 13-0 lead with 4:56 remaining in
the first period.
The Tigers' defense faced the
district leading rusher, Josh Conner,
the Flashes' senior running back came
into this game having rushed for over
1300 yards this season. The Tigers'


defense bottled up Conner and his
offense allowing 124 total yards by
Hilliard. Armani Scott put the Flashes
on the scoreboard with less than 2
minutes in the game on a 53-yard
run. The Flashes 2-point conversion
failed as the Tigers allowed a shutout
to slip away from their grasp.
Melvin Adams capped the Tigers'
offense in the first period as he
dashed in for the score on a 2 yard
run. The Tigers held a 19-0 lead as
the first period ended. Stephen Smith
setup the Tigers' next score as he
busted through the Flashes' defense
for a 48-yard gain. Smith found his
older brother Michael wide open in
the Flashes' backfield as they worked
together for a 30 yard score. Stokes
added a 2-point conversion on a short
run as this game approached 27-0.
Smith's offensive line was allowing
the junior quarterback loads of time
to find the open receiver. The Tigers'
general was again able to pick out the
open receiver as he connected with

Bulldogs defeat Hilliard for district title

Regional semi-final game is November 6 at BHS


Submitted
For the first time since 2003 the
Lady Bulldogs Volleyball team took
home the District Championship title.
Last Thursday the Lady Bulldogs
put a flourish on a fantastic season
by defeating the Hilliard Flashes in
a five game nail-biter, pushing their
record to 21-6. The game began with
Hilliard hitting hard and defeating the
Bulldogs 16-25, "We were definitely
on edge, and big game nerves had us
making some mental errors," Coach
Tiffany Liles, said about her girls,
"But there is no quit in these ladies,
they do not give in to anyone."
The next game swung in the
Bulldogs' favor, Bell won 25-20
behind great performances by a great
team. The Flashes tried the attack but
the Lady Bulldogs' coverage of the
floor frustrated the Hilliard Hitters.
Serving was great and the offense
was really hitting the ball.
Game three went to the Hilliard
Flashes again 12-25, as the Lady
Bulldogs again battled with errors in
serve receive.


Game four the Lady Bulldogs
showed their dominance picking
apart the Hilliard Flashes with their
versatile offense, and a coverage that
picked up the Flash attack and sent
it back at them without mercy, score
ended at 25-12.
It all came down to the fifth and
final game to 15, everything was on
the line. The Bulldogs jumped out
ahead behind Olivia Bailey's serving,
but soon fell behind after a series of
net calls and out of bounds hits. With
a score of 5-9 the Bulldog attack
would not be denied as Shelbie Hutto
sent a screaming kill at the Lady
Flashes' best digger, Olivia Bailey
hit a line shot and Brittany Mauldin
pushed a kill off the block and out
of bounds. Baylee Rolling had some
nice cross court kills, Raychel
Thomas hit a short front row kill, and
Ashton Mathews hit a kill shot that
injured the Flashes' middle blocker's
finger, and with the score even at 9
the Flashes' got the serve back. The
Flashes and the Bulldogs battled to a
14-14 tie; finally the Bulldogs, with


Shelbie Hutto serving, took the lead
15-14. The last play had Ashton
Mathews tipping a nice set from
Raychel Thomas onto the line. Just
that fast Lady Bulldogs were District
Champions. The celebration was
long overdue.
The Lady Bulldogs will advance
and play Branford Lady Bucs on
Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2012 at Bell High
School in the Regional Semi-Finals.
