When Bell High School junior
Michael Bare enlists in the U.S.
Navy after high school, he will
become the fourth generation of his
family to serve in the armed forces.
On Veterans Day, Jordan carried
the POW flag along the streets of
Bell in the Veterans Day parade.
A member of the BHS JROTC,
Michael said he plans to enlist in
the Navy so he can help protect the
United States of America.
grandfather, grandmother and an
uncle all served in the U.S. Navy.
"I'm proud of my family,"
Michael said. "proud that they were
able to help protect the country
I live in. I'm looking forward to
continuing the tradition."
Michael's grandparents Bill
and Kathy Bare both served in the
Navy. Kathy served for three years
and Bill retired from the Navy after
20 years of service. On Monday the
Bares enjoyed breakfast courtesy of
the Gilchrist County Woman's Club,
before driving to Bell to watch the
Veterans Day parade..
"We have at least 20 veterans
and active military in our family,"
explained Bill Bare.
The Bares moved from New
York to Gilchrist County in 1998
to get out of the cold weather and
be closer to their family, who live
in the area. With his long white
beard, Bill dresses as Santa during
the holiday months and the couple
enjoys decorating an acre of their

November 15, 2012
property in Appaloosa Trails with
Christmas lights each year. The
Bares welcome the community
to visit their "Forest of Lights,"
which is located at 3441 NE 48th
Avenue, off State Road 47, to enjoy
the Christmas lights throughout
the months of November and
early December. Open on Friday.
Saturday and Sunday evenings,
from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the Bares
provide coloring books and snacks
for children, while giving them the
opportunity to sit on Santa's knee.
Bill Bare has been portraying Santa
for over 18 years, beginning at a
retail store in Syracuse, New York.
After moving to Florida, the Bares
got involved with the High Springs
Community Theatre and Bill
began portraying Santa at the High
Springs Christmas Tree Lighting.
Since that early beginning, Bill
has picked up a number of jobs
playing Santa and now averages
15 appearances each year, from
parades to hitting the switch at
Christmas tree lightings.
"It may sound like a lot of
things, to handle but I love doing
it every year, and I am continually
looking for ways to do more," Bill
said. "Seeing the smiles on young
children's faces is priceless."
In 2009, Bill and Kathy both
went to school and obtained their
Masters in SantaClausology. To
get to know these local veterans,

The Family Garden, a certified
organic farm owned by Jordan Brown
of Bell is now marketing sweet potato,
bell pepper, eggplant, greens, lettuce,
Chinese cabbage, radish, hot peppers,
sweet peppers, kale and collards.
Brown uses no synthetic fertilizers
on the 25 acres of land he plants each
year. Instead, the South Florida native
builds the soil with manure, cover
crops and fertilizer from animal waste.
Pests and diseases are managed with
crop rotation and diversity, timing
plantings correctly and microbial
applications formulated to fight
targets pests and promote health.
Every fruit and vegetable that
is grown at The Family Garden is
Certified Organic and something that
Jordan and Diwa Brown feel good
about feeding their four children.
"1 began growing organically
because 1 didn't want potentially
harmful chemicals in my tasty garden
food," Brown explained. "When I was
at the University of Florida there was
plenty of disagreement as to whether
or not organic food was any better for
you, most people argued that it wasn't
and was only a gimmick. 1, however,
strongly disagree. I think organic
food is better and it seems that many
cancer doctors agree. Food produced
without known toxins and in a rich
and diverse soil not only taste better,
but will not lead to accumulated
poisons in the human body.
Brown's produce isavailable locally
through a Community Supported
Agriculture (CSA) program. By
signing up for a subscription a family
becomes a partner of The Family
Garden for a season, enjoying the
first and lreshIcs pick of \\h'at is
grown on the farm each week. The
CSA program also gives interested
members a chance to visit the farm
and learn about organic farming and
"Our CSA subscription is for
people who cook and love whole,
fresh food," Brown said. "Each week
subscribers receive what is available
according to the season."
Currently, The Family Garden
has four local families and 130
members who have partnered with
the farm through the CSA program.
Bell organic farmer Jordan Brown was raised in South Florida. He had limited farm exposure growing up,
though hiis grandfather did irrigation for orange groves and tomato farms.
Each week, these families are given
seven to nine different types of fresh,
The Brown family moved from
Gainesville to Bell five years ago.
Though he had worked in the
construction industry, the economy
prompted Jordan to pursue organic
farming full time, after a love for
vegetable gardening developed into
Today, Brown and his six employees
are constantly planting every twvo
weeks, so there is a continuous cycle
of planting and harvesting. The CSA
season starts October 18 and runs
until June 20. The price of a share is
$660 for 33 weeks of food. Brown
also wholesales produce throughout

make a living and afford the things
we need," Brown said. "My goal
in farming is to be able to provide
quality food, offering the freshest
most-nutritious produce available,
all the while improving efficiency to
make good food at a good price."
The Family Garden is also
working toward becoming the first
Food Justice Certified farm in the
southeastern United States.
The Food Justice Certified label
was developed by the Agricultural
Justice Project, which began as a
cooperative effort in 1999.
Leah Cohen represents one of the
founding groups, Florida Organic
Growers. "Food Justice Certification
allows growers to place a label on
their specialty crops and products
as a signal to conscious consumers,"
said Cohen. "Many consumers have
questions about the treatment of the
farmworkers and others in the food
system that helped bring the harvest to
them. Our Food Justice Certification
allows consumers to rest assured that
what they are buying is certified to
standards that include fair, just, and
safe treatment of all those that labor
The Agricultural Justice Project's
standards were originally developed
over four years of stakeholder input.
"It was important to us to get input
on the standards from across the food
chain." said Cohen. "It was critical
to the project to ask those who live
the daily experiences of injustices
in our food system how to codify
in concrete terms what a legitimate
claim of social justice would be,"
said Cohen. "The standards came
from stakeholders and the project
continues to be governed by food
system stakeholders means it will
stay true to those who bring us our
food. Of course one of the first things
we heard from those who work in
the fields is that it is not just to be
exposed to toxic synthetic chemicals
on a daily basis, so organic and
ecologically sustainable agriculture
was the starting point from which we

"As my workers and I learned
together about AJP's social justice
standards, I became even more sure
that I had made the right decision for
my farm and the people who work
alongside me and my fairly here,'
The Food Justice Certification
training was facilitated by Florida
Organic Growers, and conducted by
trained members of the Farmworker
Association of Florida, like Jeannie
"Farmworkers do some of the
hardest and yet most important
work in this country. Too often their
work, and they themselves, are taken
advantage of because of their ethnic
and/or socio-economic status,"
said Economos. "Now, through this
work and this project, we have an
opportunity to turn things around for
farmworkers and for conscientious
farmers in the U.S. This is a gigantic
Conducted in Spanish, the training
taught Brown and his workers about
cooperation, collaboration, openness
and transparency in their dealings
with each other. They also learned
about their rights and responsibilities
under U.S. laws and the more
stringent AJP standards.
"We're taking a big step together,
being the first farm in the southeast
U.S. to participate in this program,"
said Brown. "I've learned a lot from
the process and am excited to see the

to slow down long enough to just
breathe and be truly thankful for my
Over the weekend I was reminded
in a big way how truly grateful I am to
be born and raised right here on what
I consider my Southern ground.
Here, where our three counties,
Dixie, Gilchrist and Levy flank each
side of the Suwannee. Here, where
our children grow up shoulder to
shoulder with not just longtime, but
generational family friends.
Friday night John and I stopped at a
fundraiser before the Trenton-Chief-
land football game, which turned out
to be ol' home week for me. We had
a chance to spend a few minutes vis-
iting with Donna Kay Sache Leggett
and her family and friends. What a
joy it was for me to catch up with
lifelong friends I haven't seen in a
while and to hear the accents of my
youth, old Florida accents. I had a
grand time doing a little catching up
with people who mean a great deal to
I'm pleased to say that the Sache
family and my own family, the Beau-
champ's, have been friends for over
Many of you all will remem-
ber Donna and her husband, Billy
Leggett, who for years ran the Melon
Patch, a Chiefland store that featured
many handmade gift items.
Several years ago, Donna was di-
agnosed with Transverse Myelitis.
After a long hospital stay and several
surgeries she has been working dili-
gently to make her life as normal as
possible. Friday's fundraiser was to
help provide her with a vehicle that
is specially equipped so she can drive
Donna gifted me with a very spe-
cial cookbook on Friday night that
she and her two sisters, Faye and Por-
tia compiled this year. Donna told me
that as she lay in bed during her long
recovery thinking of all the things she
had not accomplished, a family cook-
book kept coming to mind and she is
thrilled to have finally completed it.
On Saturday morning, as I sat read-
ing the recipes in the Sache Family
Cookbook, I was so excited to find
a recipe for a local old time favorite,
The Sache family's Wash Pot Pilau,
which is literally cooked in a old
black cast iron wash pot over a wood
fire in the yard.
Years ago friends would come
from miles around to feast on the
wonderful chicken and rice that Mr.
Porter would stir with a wooden stir-
ring paddle. Somehow that old black
wash pot worked magic on the sim-
mering rice and pretty soon everyone
was enjoying what could have been
the world's best Pilau.
Funny how sometimes just a short
visit with longtime friends can bring
back sweet memories from your
childhood like cane syrup cooking' at
Judge and Cordele Allen's, peanut
boiling at Allie Mae and Sonny
Drummond's and pilau at Porter and
Josephine Sache's farm, all cooked
outdoors in a cast iron pot or kettle.
No wonder an old wash pot or ket-
tle will bring a smile no matter where
I see it. Sweet, sweet memories of
good friends and a much simpler
Thanksgiving is almost here and
I'm sure you all have your pencil and
paper out making grocery lists for the
big holiday dinner.
The following salad is simple and
pretty good and you can even make
this salad up a day early. Just drain
off the juice that has collected in bot-
tom of the bowl of fruit, and wait to
stir in the whipped cream until a hour
or so before put dinner on the table.

How about those Trenton Tigers?
The Trenton Tigers varsity football team has set the standard for all future
Tiger football teams to be measured by. They have made history with their
20- record over the last two seasons. We are excited about the opportunities
they have as they enter the state IA playoffs.
This Tiger team beginning with Friday's game will find that each and every
play could be a game maker or breaker.
It has been exciting to witness this team play. On Friday night in Chiefland
when the Tigers scored on back to back possessions to take a 26-7 lead. That
was our Trenton Tigers playing Tigerball. When they play their game they are
tough to handle. When the Tiger's defense begins to swarm after the football,
they make their opponents offense commit turnovers. This is what we will be
waiting to see Friday night when Jefferson County steps on the field in Tren-
ton. We want to see our Trenton Tigers play their game and put their name on
the Regional bracket to play the winner of the Hilliard and Lafayette County
game and move into the next round.
1 have watched this coaching staff engage week in and week out to achieve
this team's goals. The students that are team members of this Trenton Tiger
team have worked hard to achieve where they currently are. It is now show
time and the Friday night lights get brighter each week. The Trenton Tigers
have worked long and hard to get where they are, we now want to see them
strive to be the best they can be.
The Trenton Tigers that went 11-1 in 2011 were a good football team. The
2012 Tigers that are now 20-1 are a much stronger, more physical and better
equipped football team ready to make the next step.
Come out and support our Trenton Tigers Friday night and let's watch our
team kick-off their state playoff run.
Regardless of which side of the po-
litical, economic or picket fence you
are on, there is one thing about which
we can all agree...a historic election
is over, the country has spoken and
now it is time for the winning team to
see if they can put some points up on
the economic scoreboard.

luck. Personally, I am not sure why

Words can't express my heartfelt gratitude for all the support during my
campaign. What an awesome experience! I have met some wonderful folks,
overcome fear, and developed a deeper love for this community. To the
citizens that supported me by voting, thank you. To those who worked
alongside me through the campaign, you lifted my hands when I was weak,
and I appreciate your devotion to me. To my husband, whom I love more than
I could ever say, you are my rock and the wind beneath my wings. You were
always there waving, putting up signs, holding my hand, and offering
encouraging words. To my children, thank you for your patience and support.
I am so very proud of the young adults you have become. To everyone who
voted, thank you. Whether you supported me or not, you let your voice be
heard. Let us,never forget our country was founded so that we can have this
freedom. We live in a wonderful country that allows us the freedom to stand
up for what we believe in and vote for people to represent us in government:
local, state and national. I sought the office of Superintendent because I had
ideas that I thought would be beneficial to our county and families. I felt that
it was my responsibility'to step forward to lead us through positive change if
at all possible. Although I was not elected, I am grateful for the opportunity
and will continue to serve our community. Now as a county and school
system, we must move forward. Our goal should always be doing what is right
for our children. While children are only about 25% of our population, they
are 100% of our future, so our work is crucial. My prayer is that God will
guide us in the direction we should go; and that we will be willing to follow.

Obedience is critical to person-
al success. When a person knows
what to do and heeds signals, obeys
rules, and quickly and cheerfully fol-
lows through, disaster and chaos are
avoided. A proper understanding of
obedience is necessary to function
fruitfully and harmoniously. By lis-
tening to instructions, smiling with a
good attitude, jumping to action im-
mediately, going the extra mile, and
following rules, the obedient person
demonstrates dependability. Attitude
and action are exercised by way of
True obedience at times obliges
a person to refuse compliance as
strongly as it otherwise compels
compliance. Regarding misuse of au-
thority, use of wise appeals and con-
sistently choosing what is right is an
exercise in the virtue of obedience.
Two interesting words in etymology
regarding obedience are obsequious-
ness, which implies "servile compli-
ance," whereas, obedience is "per-
forming what is required in response
to instruction given." In other word.,
a slave is obsequious to his master,
whereas a citizen is obedient to the

To Mrs. Ezell, obedience is a way
She was taught at an early age
the benefits of obedience, for she
learned, right from the start, that it is
a matter of doing what the Lord com-
mands and doing it willingly, which
reaps blessings which God desires
to shower upon His children. Mrs.
Ezell shares. "when a person is obe-
dient, they come out on top. no mat-
ter what things look like." She gave
an example of one in a sports arena,
for she said, "even if the game is lost,
demonstrating good character is the
blessing which can be had, and be-
cause of that, the team and individual
Mrs. Ezell's favorite saying, a
model she follows in her daily life,
comes from Kofi Annan. "To live is
to choose, but to choose well you
must know who you are, and what
you stand for, where you want to go.
and why you want to get there," and
she related that obedience is the key
to it all.

turn to enter through our handmade
tiki hut and meander down our vine
lit and animal laden halls to collect
tons of candy placed in their waiting
buckets by our anxious residents.
To add to the nostalgia, our part-
ners as well as our residents had face

don their favorite animal!
As each child passed through they
were greeted and treated. For days af-

got to share with the many children
that visited and the terrific costumes
they wore, as well as the number of

The Spirit Of Solomon
In the early days of the reign of Solomon, the king went
to Gibeon to sacrifice to the Lord. While there, God
appeared to Solomon and asked him, "What shall I give
you" (I Kings 3:5)? The answer of the young king is
revealing into the purity of motives and humility of heart
impressed upon the son of David. Solomon praised his
father David for his faithful walk with the Lord but now
that he was king Solomon recognized the immense burden
of leadership that now'rests upon his shoulders. He would
not ask of God riches and power but rather something that
he understood was more important than anything found in
the world: an understanding heart to judge the people. This
request came from the spirit that dwelt in his own heart as
he told the Lord, "I am a little child; I do not know how to
go out or come in" (1 Kings 3:7).
Children have a purity about them that comes from the
innocence of age. They are fully trusting and dependent
upon others to guide them and take care of them. No child
can survive left alone and as the heart of the child grows it
learns how to walk and talk and care for itself. When the
child grows into maturity it leaves off that dependence and
seeks its own way. Jesus described the people of God like
children when He said, "Unless you are converted and
become as little children, you will by no means enter the
kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself
as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of
heaven" (Matthew 18:3-4). The disciples wanted to know
who would be great in the kingdom and Jesus' reply is, "a
In our spiritual life we are never to mature to the point we
no longer need God. We should always be children in our
hearts like Solomon. Our confession daily must be we
know not "how to go out or come in" and ':I need thee
every hour" (Annie S. Hawks). Our troubles come when we
no longer think and act like a 'child of God' and are no
longer little in our own sight. The predecessor of Solomon
and David was Saul of Kish who in the beginning of his
reign had the heart of a child. Then he took upon himself
the role of thinking for God and in the final insult to God
did not destroy the Amalekites as commanded by the Loord
(1 Samuel 15). In his rebuke the prophet Samuel said,
"When you were little in your own eyes, were you not
head of the tribes of Israel? And did not the Lord anoint
you king over Israel" (I Samuel 15:17)? Saul lost his child
David wrote of the child's heart in Psalm 131 "Lord, nmy
heart is not haughty, nor nmy eyes loft. Neither do I
concern myself with great matters, nor with things too
profound for me. Surely I have calmed and quieted my'
soul, like a weaned child with his mother; like a weaned
child is my soul within me" (Psalms 131:1-2). As children
of God we follow the will of God without question and
through our love for our Father. We are but children and
with the spirit of a child's heart we learn dependence
(Matthew 6:25-34) and trust (Proverbs 3:5-8).
There are only children in the kingdom of God. No one is
greater than another and we all serve one another as we
serve one Father. "But ihe who is greatest among you shall
be your servant. And whoever evalts himself will be
humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted"
(Matthew 23:11-12). Children learn to wash feet as Jesus
shows in John 13. Children understand Iorgiveness (Mark
11:25-26). The spirit of a child is filled with love (I John
4:7-11). Be like Solomon: "I am little ch ild."

In 1993, Franklin Graham, Interna-
tional President of Samaritan's Purse,
adopted Operation Christmas Child.
Since then, more than 94 million
shoe boxes have been distributed to
children between 2-14 years of age.
In Fiji, last year, a young boy named
Ajay sat quietly with his head down
and his hands in his lap. One of the
workers handing out shoe boxes saw
Ajay and went over to help him. She
soon learned that Ajay was almost
blind and had recently lost his mother.
As she assisted Ajay in opening his
box tears began to come in her eyes.
Right on top of the contents inside
the box was a magnifying glass. She
then showed Ajay how he could read
with the assistance of the magnifying
glass. God truly directed this box to
this specific child.
You can be among the many orga-
nizations, churches and individuals
who are actively involved collecting
shoeboxes filled with a variety of
items like toys, shoes, t-shirts, hats,
school supplies, etc. These shoe box-
es are distributed all over the world,
and for some of these children this is
the first Christmas gift they have ever

The Food Pantry of Gilchrist
County would like to thank Bubba's
Place for the benefit they put on for
the pantry on Sunday, Nov. 11.
On Veterans Day, Bubba's Place
held a benefit food drive and auction
to raise food and funds to help people
during the holidays.
Bubba Que's catered and donated
all the food for the event.
There was an auction of donated
items, 50-50 ticket sales, food drive
and cash donations during the event.
Over 200 pounds of food and over
$1,200 was collected for the food
pantry on Sunday.
The Food Pantry of Gilchrist
County greatly appreciates the
owners and patrons who came out to
make this a successful event. These
events are essential to the food pantry
during the holiday season as it helps
so many in need this time of year.
The Food Pantry will hold a mobile
food distribution on Thursday, Nov.
15 at the Bell Community Center.
Another distribution is scheduled for
December 20 at the Trenton Depot.
All distributions begin at 10:30

The newly elected Gilchrist Coun-
ty Superintendent of Schools and

In the 14th Chapter of Exodus, the
Israelites find themselves standing be-
tween a rock and a hard place...more
literally between an army and lots
of water! Observing their despera-
tion clearly shows our oddly human
preference of going back to what is
familiar when things get scary, even
if what is familiar is very unhealthy.
1 believe this tendency is a result
of familiarity being directly linked to
our comfort. In other words, we may
not particularly like the situation,
environment, or relationship we are
in, but compared to stepping into the
unknown, we often consider it pref-
erable. Let's watch as the Israelites
display this behavior over and over
again in their journey from Egypt
through the wilderness:
Exodus 14 records part two of
God's rescue mission. In part one,
Moses led the way out of Egypt.
Don't forget their desire to go back to
Egypt rather than face the army ap-
proaching. Part two describes how
God miraculously parted the Red Sea
for the Israelites to walk across on dry
ground. Do you think they were still
wishing to go back to slavery as they
stood on the other side of the Red Sea
and watched Pharaoh's army drown?
Of course not!! They celebrated, just
like we would! But, then it's time
to get moving again and now water
and food is in short supply. Exodus
16 records the next timely "if only"
"The Israelites said to them (Aaron
and Moses), "If only we had died
by the Lord's hand in Egypt! There
we sat around pots of meat and ate
all the food we wanted, but you have
brought us out into this desert to
starve this entire assembly to death."
About now you're thinking what
I'm thinking: "Are you kidding me?"
Yet, before we judge too harshly, let's
think about times when we are tempt-
ed to sound just as ludicrous. In the
face of uncertainty, do we think back
to what is familiar and remember it
favorably? Anyone overhearing the
Israelites' statement above would
never have guessed they were slaves
in Egypt. They made it sound like
they lived in paradise!
1 was talking about this with a
friend of mine recently who shared
feeling very much the same way dur-
ing her divorce. The relationship was
extremely unhealthy, her spouse did
not desire reconciliation, and yet more
than anything, she wanted to go back.
She agreed that the fear of the un-
known (being on her own as a single
mom) began to paralyze and prevent
her from moving forward. Where we
were brings us to where we are, and
if going back is ever to be a healthy
option, problems must be faced and
changes made...which means we are
indeed moving forward. If not, we
only prolong the suffering.
I suppose our lesson this week is
simply to expect these kinds of feel-
ings when we find ourselves travel-
ing in unknown territory. When we
anticipate the overwhelming desire
to go back the way you came, we can
refuse to let it be our GPS and direct
our steps into an unhealthy situation.
As Paul says in Philippians 3:14, "1
press on toward the goal to win the
prize for which God has called me
heavenward in Christ Jesus." Press
on in the face of uncertainty. Know
for certain that God will lead you for-
ward...because every heart matters!

Three FFA students from Fort
White High School recently gave a
presentation to the Suwannee River
Water Management District's (Dis-
trict) Governing Board about a nutri-
ent management project their chapter
conducted for the Nutrients for Life
Foundation's Helping Communities
Grow program, in which the chapter
won the $5,000 first place award.
The students tested the effects of
the following techniques on a crop of
* The method of drip irrigation
* Application of three types of ni-
trogen fertilizer sources
* The method of fertigation
They studied how these practices
affected crop production, the qual-
ity of the crop, and the effects on
the environment. For example, they
identified the most effective drip ir-
rigation methods, the most effective
rate of irrigation to prevent nitrogen
leaching, and the most effective type
of fertilizer to use to control nitrogen
leaching. Students went out into the
community to demonstrate what they
had found and provided information
on how the community could use
these methods at their own home.
They demonstrated the importance of
nutrients and best management prac-
tices to meet sustainability and which
practices would have a minimal ef-
fect on the environment. The FFA is
in the process of developing an edu-
cational brochure to distribute to the
community on how to implement the
irrigation and fertilization practices
in their gardens.
"These young men did an outstand-
ing job with their project and presen-
tation, and we appreciated the FFA
students sharing their research with
the District and Governing Board,"
said District Executive Director
Ann Shortelle. "We are pleased to
see students learning about nutrient

not on the pitfalls of your opponent. I feel I did this and

late Mr. Clemons on his re-election and I am certain he

to raise money for polio eradication.
In 1985, Rotary International began
raising funds in an effort to elimi-
nate polio worldwide. Polio has not
been a problem in the U.S. for many
years, but this is not the case in many
developing countries. 'By partner-
ing with the World Health Organi-
zation and other governmental and
private groups, Rotary International
has achieved a 99 percent reduction
of polio worldwide. Our local Tren-
ton Rotary Club is committed to par-
ticipation in this project. Presently,
through the Purple Pinkie Project,
we wish to make Gilchrist County
school students part of the solution.
Since $1.00 is the estimated cost to
immunize one child against polio,
local students have been encouraged
to bring $1.00 or more to help with
this cause. Each time a student puts
$1.00 in, we will paint his/her pinkie
with Gentian Violet as a symbol of
one child immunized against polio.
Of course, more than one finger may
be painted if more than $1.00 is do-
nated! Gentian Violet is a topical dye
used by Rotary International to mark
children after they have been immu-
nized against polio, preventing dou-
ble dosage. Since it is widely used
by nursing mothers and in the mouths
of infants, it is very safe. Its safety
has been confirmed by doctors and
pharmacists. However, Gentian Vio-
let is brilliantly purple and will leave
the child's finger colored for a day
or two. By partnering with Rotary,
our local students will become part of
the solution to polio, and their purple
pinkie will be their own personal re-
minder of one more child saved from
the polio virus. Join us today in our
fight for saving students!

One of the treasures we found was this quilt made by Lorraine Stone
(1912 2007) in 1991. The two ties in the center belong to Presi-
dents Jimmy Carter and Gerald Ford. The twenty nine in a semi circle
around the Presidents' ties are from Governors at that time. Mrs.
Stone took the time to request ties from all the Governors and slie re-
ceived these ties in response.

at least a short-term deal to avert the

a minimum kick the can down the

Congress to reach a solution invites a
Wall Street implosion.
Wall Street and Washington have
misread each other in the past with
near calamitous results. One of the
ugliest moments occurred in Sep-
tember 2008, not two weeks after
Lehman Brothers collapsed. Back
then the House rejected a $700 bil-
lion financial bailout plan. As result,
the financial markets unraveled, cre-
ating a shock wave powerful enough
to galvanize lawmakers into passing
a revised plan a few days later. The

With regard to your portfolio in
the coming months, keep in mind
that while change brings opportunity,
do not become so overly enamored
with trying to capitalize on incipi-
ent trends that you lose sight of your
original investment objective, which
is to find proven companies that have
a high probability of producing capi-
tal gains and dividend growth over
the next several years.
Yet, given the election results
many investors are likely to become
discouraged and look for alternatives
to Wall Street. While I vehemently
disagree with such a position, I also
recognize that having the emotional
fortitude required to deal with ex-
cessive market volatility is a rare
and commendable trait. It is easy for
someone of Warren Buffett's stature
and wealth to comment that the time
to invest is when everyone else is
While your investment prowess
may not challenge that of Warren
Buffet, you can certainly produce
satisfying returns on a smaller scale.

said in his recent acceptance speech,
"We are the global leader in tech-

businesses that follow...furthermore,

It's not always a straight line. It's not

grandmother and great-grandmother.
Lillie Mae was married to Joseph
Cecil Perkins in 1940 and enjoyed 42
years of being with the only man she
ever loved. Most of all she was de-
voted to him and her loving care was
instrumental in her family having
him with them much longer than they
ever expected due to chronic illness
suffered by Mr. Perkins.
She loved her family with a pas-
sion, especially the four little great-
grand people and as a result her fam-
ily enjoyed her presence and love for
a longer period of time as she could
not bear to leave them. Most of all
she wanted them to remember Man-
Maw and how much she loved them
and for her great-grandchildrei n to
have precious memories to take with
them through life.
Lillie Mae was a member of Mt.
Nebo Baptist Church for 71 years
and gave her love and devotion to the
church and its parishioners.
She was blessed to be surrounded
by loving friends and family and will
be terribly missed.
Lillie Mae was known to often
say to her granddaughter and grand-
daughter-in-law, "Those babies (re-
ferring to her great-grandchildren)
are so beautiful and you are blessed
to have them."
Her family was blessed to have her
