High school graduation

rate rises to 85.9%


By Carrie A. Mizell
The Gilchrist County School
District has the third highest
graduation rate in the state, at 85.9
percent, according to the Florida
Department of Education.
The.drop out rates at Bell High
School and Trenton High School
were 1.1 percent for the 2011-2012
school year.
"Our graduation :rate is 11
percentage points higher than the
state average," said Superintendent
Rob Rankin. "I believe one of the
reasons for our success is because we
provide many different educational
opportunities which keep our students
interested in school"
The countywide graduation rate
rose from 79.9 percent in 2010-2011,
and 77.7 percent in 2009-2010.
According to. '/the Florida
Department of Education, the federal
graduation rate counts as graduates
only those earning standard diplomas,
not special diplomas or GED's.

"Our goal now is to figure out what
prevented some of our students from
graduating," Rankin said. "We are
not satisfied if any of our students do
not graduate."
The county's new school
superintendent said that he is
extremely proud of the school district
staff.
"When we receive data like this, it
shows that our students are connecting
with the teachers," Rankin said, "'and
that our schools are providing every
opportunity possible for students to
receive a high school diploma."

with loss to Northview


By John M. Ayers
SThe Trenton Tigers completed a
fantastic 13-1 football season Friday
night as they were defeated by
Northview Chiefs (11-4) 42-21. This
was the Chief's first appearance in a
1A FHSAA Championship and it was
played in the Florida Citrus Bowl in
Orlando. The Trenton fans were in
attendance to support their Tigers as
a new Citrus Bowl record was set for
the 1A-4A, playoff attendance. The
official attendance reported over 3600
fans attended the 1A championship
game.
The Tigers' defense stopped


Northview on a fumble recovery
in the first period, but were unable
to drive the field for a momentum
building score. The Tigers stumbled
in the second period as Northview
capitalized on pass interceptions and
a blocked punt to give the Chiefs a
21-0 edge at halftime.
In the third period Trenton stopped
Northview on their first possession.
The Tigers scored, on a Cedric
Stokes 3 yard run, with 11 minutes
remaining in the period. Michael
Smith, the eighth grade place kicker
added an extra point with ease as his
brother Stephen held the ball on the


i
block. The Tigers' kickoff was taken
by the Chiefs' Nino Robinson and the
junior defensive back ran 78 yards
for the score. Kevin Vaughn added
the PAT as Northview answered
the Tigers score with a touchdown
to take a 28-7 lead. With just over
5 minutes remaining in the third

GILCHRIST COUNTY JOURNAL


THURSDAY, DECEMBER 13, 2012


I think 2012 will always be remem-
bered as the year the Trenton Tigers
went to state.
Last week was a pretty exciting
week for the Trenton Tigers football
team and all their fans. Who could
have guessed at the beginning of the
season that Tiger fans from far and
near would have spent the evening of
Friday, Dec. 7, at the Citrus Bowl in
Orlando cheering on the home team.
The Tigers enjoyed a wonderful
send off from Trenton High School
on Thursday afternoon, as fans gath-
ered along Main Street to cheer on
the charter bus, filled with players as
it drove out of town, headed to the
state playoffs.
The team enjoyed well wishes from
none other than the Robertsons of the
popular A&E show Duck Dynasty
via video. That should please all' of
the tri-county area, is many of us are
Duck Dynasty fans. ,
On game night young and old alike
filed into the stadium. I have to ad-
mit the Citrus Bowl in Orlando was
a little overwhelming to a 'simple,
country grandmother like myself.
But, pretty soon as the Trenton side
of the stadium filled with hometown
fans, I realized that we had all come
together to not only watch Trenton
play but to support this group of de-
serving young men.
I couldn't believe it when I saw
Mr. Horace Thomas at the. game.
Mr. Horace is now a resident of Ay-
ers Health & Rehabilitation Center,
but with his grandson, coaching the
Tigers, it made perfect sense that he
should be at the game.
We were all so pleased with the
wonderful support from every corner
of Trenton including a huge crowd of
THS alumni who attended from all
over the state.
This game truly became a county-
wide event as a large number of
friends from Bell and even some
from nearby towns attended. Look-
ing around at the large crowd of sup-
porters was enough to warm anyone's
heart.
There were so many local people
down in Orlando that we began to
joke that someone could make off
with the whole town of Trenton and
there would be'nobody left at home
to stop them,
Then a-little later on in the eve-
ning I heard that the Chiefland High
School football team had worn their
football jerseys to school on Friday
to show support for the Trenton Ti-
gers; now that's sportsmanship.
Even after the game, my heart was
again lifted when the crowd did not
rush out of the stadium but held fast
and waited to cheer for the 2012 Ti-
ger football team as they received the
State Class 1-A runners up trophy.
We may be a small county, but one
thing is for sure we have heart, and
we are mighty proud of this group of
fine young men, the 2012 Trenton Ti-
ger Football Team whd took us all the
way to state for the very first time.

Last week I printed a recipe for
Captain's Wafers with bacon and
brown sugar on tdp. When I finally
got around to testing the recipe on
Friday I realized the baking time,
or temperature was somewhat off.
I went back and consulted a Paula
Deen cookbook'and read a simi-
lar recipe using 'cheese, bacon and
a cracker. Then I tested the recipe a
second time using Paula's time and
temperature. So here is the adjusted
recipe.


6 strips of thick bacon
Light brown sugar
Captain Wafers or Club Crackers

Unwrap Captain Wafers and place
on cake cooling rack that has been
placed in a baking sheet pan. Cut
each slice of bacon in 4 pieces. Place
a slice of bacon on each cracker and
sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of brown
sugar over each piece of bacon. Bake
at 250 degrees for 2 hours. You can
begin testing when the crackers have
baked for an hour and a half, as every
oven is a little different.

This week I would like to feature
a real Christmas-y recipe passed on
to me from my good friend, Marilyn
Graden; who just happens to be a
great cook.
If you like Cranberry Bliss Bars at
StarbucksTM you might want to try
this one. The only' change I made in
the recipe was to'use only 1/2 tea-
spoon of ground 'ginger, as I'm not
too big of a ginger fan. These bars are
wonderful in the morning with that
first cup of coffee. Come to think of
it they are wonderful anytime of day.
^mosi' Sta1&ucXsTM


2 sticks of softened butter
1 1/4 cup light brown sugar '
3 eggs, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
6 ounces or 1 cup white chocolate
chips, chopped
1/2 cup chopped dried cranberries
2 tablespoons orange zest (takes two
oranges)

Beat butter and sugar till creamy, add
eggs one at a time. Then add vanilla
and' beat until fluffy. Sift together
flour, ginger and salt. Add to butter
mixture and beat well. Fold in white
chocolate chips, cranberries and or-
ange zest. The batter will be thick.
Spread batter into a 9x13 pan that
has been greased and floured. Bake
at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden
brown. Cool completely.

Frosting
4 ounces cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 teaspoons lemon juice
Beat cream cheese until light and
fluffy- then add all other ingredients
and beat until a smooth frosting is
formed. Spread over cooled cake.
Garnish
2 tablespoons dried cranberries,
minced
1/3 cup white chocolate chips, melt-
ed

Sprinkle cranberries over the iced
bar. Melt chips in microwave for
about 20 seconds stir until smooth.
You may need to heat another 10
seconds or so to make the chocolate
thin enough to drizzle over the top of
the cake. I did this by taking a tea-
spoon full of chocolate and tiltihg the
spoon so the chocolate would run off
the spoon, then moved the spoon in a
'circular motion. Cut into small bars
as this recipe is a tad rich. Store in
the fridge.

One Week Left For Man
(Kent.Heaton)


According to -the interpretation of some, the end of the
world will happen next week, in accordance with a
supposed prophecy from the Mayan culture long ago. The
great event of 2012 will be another prognostication of the
end of time. Like the Y2K fears and the myriad of religious
leaders who have led many to believe in their own brand of
"end-times" belief the Bible does tell.us when the end of
the world will be. If anyone would know when the earth
will be destroyed it would have to be the One who created
it and put it into motion. Since God is the sovereign power
and authority to man's existence (Daniel 5:23) He would be
the one to tell us when the world will come to an end.
It must be understood in the beginning that man's
existence is limited. As life is characterized as a vapor,
(James 4:14) so the life of all things balance on the thin line
of mortality. The earth itself is a living creature, created by
the will of the Almighty whose life is destined to end by the
wish of the Creator. Genesis 6-9 is a testimony of the
mighty power of how God can destroy all mankind (save
eight souls) in one event. The grand scale of the flood and
utter destruction pale in comparison to the final occasion of
earth's demise.
Peter describes the end of the earth in graphic terms. "But
the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night, in
which the heavens will pass away with a great noise, atnd
the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth
and the works that are in it will be burned up ... the
heavens will be dissolved, being on fire, and the elements
will melt with fervent heat" (2 Peter 3:10,12). No black
hole, no meteor, no global warming effect and no nuclear
holocaust. Man can never destroy his own world in a total


event; that is left to the justice of the Lord.
The most important question of the earth's end is when this
will take place. The Bible clearly tells us the day and the
time of the end of time. "Heaven and earth will pass away,
but My words will by no means pass away. But of that day
and hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven,
nor the Son, but only the Father. Take heed, watch and
pray; for you do not know when the time is" (Mark
13:31-33). I know when the world will come to an end! Isn't,
that great! How wonderful is that knowledge. The end of all
time will be in accordance with the will of the Father alone.
No man knows, no angel knows and not even Jesus Christ. I
don't have to worry about when that will be because it will
be the decision of my Father.
Do you not feel relieved to know that as long as God
knows we don't have to worry about when the world will
come to an end? What I get to do is to watch for the coming
of His Son and what a wonderful .day that will be (2
Thessalonians 1:10). My life is filled with the prayer of
"Even so, come, Lord Jesus" (Revelation 22:20). Many
people -worry about the end of time because they know that
if it happens at the wrong time it would be a tragedy for
them. For those who live in the grace of God death has no
fear (1 Corinthians 15:50-58) and the end of the world is a
blessing. "They shall see His face, and His name shall be
on their foreheads. There shall be no night there: they
need no lamp nor light of the sun, for the Lord God gives
them light. And they shall reign forever and ever"
(Revelation 22:4-5). Maybe the Lord will come today!!
Praise God!

"Sour Grapes"
Dear Editor,
Let me first of all say that I am
proud to be one of those Republicans
who crossed party lines to vote for
Bobby Schultz for sheriff.
After meeting all of the candidates
in that race, my choices came down
to either Bobby Schultz or Robert
Roux, both of whom I felt were quali-
fied and would be an improvement to
the past four years. I met both Bobby
and Robert several times at different
events and at my home and became
convinced that Bobby was the more
qualified candidate with more diverse.
experience and training.
I am very disappointed in Robert
Roux and his filing of a lawsuit to
have the election either voided en-
tirely or having himself declared the
outright winner in this election. If in
fact the election is voided, I believe
that all of the "losing candidates"
would have the right to re-enter the
race and cause a special election to
be held. In that case, I truly do not
believe that Robert Roux would be

Go Tigers!
Congratulations to the 2012 Tren-
ton Tiger Football Team, for the great
run all the way to State 1A Finals in
Orlando!! It was great to hear the re-
ports that the school and town were
well represented at the Citrus Bowl
stadium, especially to those of us that
could not attend, yet were hoping and
praying for the big win that you all so
richly deserved.
We are all so proud of you guys as
teammates, as well as your dedicated
coaches and school fans. The whole
county (not just Trenton) came out
each week in all its orange and black
to cheer you on, as the "One Town,
SOne. Team, One Dream" theme reso-
nated in all of us. Keep up the great


successful. I believe the Democratic
voters would vote for the candidate
second behind Schultz.in the primary
along their party lines and that many
of the Republicans who voted for
Bobby Schultz would turn against
Roux for his "Sour Grapes" reaction
to losing.
I believe that Robert Roux has
shown us a lack of maturity arid
judgement in this lawsuit and has
upset more people than he imagines.
Calling into question the integrity
and reputations of Connie Sanchez,
Sheree Lancaster and D. Ray Harri-
son is a further insult that will serve
him no purpose. The voters have spo-
ken and we should move ahead.
In addition, I think a very impor-
tant question that must be asked is-
who is financing and supporting this
frivolous lawsuit. I cannot imagine
that Robert Roux is funding this
alone and he should make fill dis-
closure of his financial supporters.
Buying his way into office is not in
the best interest of this county and it's
citizens.

P.S. As a footnote, Jim and I were
in Gainesville on Monday, Dec. 10,
and happened. to go by Gainesville
High School, along NW 13th Street,
and there was NOTHING in front of
the school to indicate that they would
be playing in this coming weekend's
State 6A Final (How sad for their
boys). What a difference it meanis
to live in a small town community,
where "everyone knows your name"
and we care so passionately about/for
one another.

By Presley Paulling,
5th Grade Gifted
Mr. Rob Rankin, our new Gilchrist
County School Superintendent, offi-
cially opened the BES "Dog Pound"
School Store on Tuesday, Dec. 4th.
He came without his wallet-but, our
enthusiastic employees convinced
him to find some money to purchase:
a slide phone eraser, pencil sharpen-
er, and pencils. We figured he would
need these items in his new job!
The Gifted students here at BES
purchased the store from the PTO in
September. We took a tour of the fa-
cilities, made a list of equipment and
met with Mrs. Pinna, the PTO Presi-
dent, to discuss a start up loan and
our plans for the store.
We had to do a lot of work in prepa-
ration such as: we contacted the State
Comptroller about whether or not to
charge tax and met with our book-
keeper, Mrs. Mahoney about deposits
and money procedures. We then had
to count the existing merchandise and
then do product analysis. Thisprpyed
quite difficult as we each wanted to
purchase different stuff. So we tad
to think like our customers and make
sure our merchandise didn't dupli-
cate something already in the store,
was unsafe because of small parts,
and the retail price was reasonable so
we could turn a small profit.
We are now in the red (a negative
balance) until we pay back our loan,
and our equipment purchases such as
our cash register and display cases.
We can't wait until we can turn a prof-
it! We are currently in our third year
of maintaining a saltwater aquarium
in our school library and would like
to use our profits to continue to add
new residents and/ or equipment to
this project.
"This is a great service to BES stu-
dents and a wonderful learning op-
portunity for the gifted class" quotes
Mr. Rankin as he cut the ribbon to
open the store for business. "It also
teaches life lessons that you would
eventually use in the near future. This
school store would be like a business
which helps kids get ready for their
life as an adult" said Mr. Rankin.
By the way, Mr. Rankin, we also
have a layaway plan if you forget
your wallet!

Blood Drive will
be held at
Bell High School
There will be a blood drive at Bell

Gilchrist County has been awarded Federal Funds under
the Emergency Food and Shelter National Board Program
Gilchrist County has been chosen to receive $7,057.00 to supplement
emergency food and shelter programs in the county.
The selection was made by a National Board that is chaired by the
Department of Homeland Security's Federal Emergency Management Agency
and consists of representatives from American Red Cross; Catholic Charities,
USA;The Jewish Federations of North America,The Salvation Army; and United
Way Worldwide.The local board was charged to distribute funds approved by
Congress to help expand the capacity of food and shelter programs in
high-need areas around the country.
A Local Board will determine how the funds awarded to Gilchrist County are
to be distributed among the emergency food and shelter programs run by
local service ,'agencies in the area. The Local Board is responsible for
recommending agencies to receive these funds and any additional funds,,
made available under the phase of the program.

to receive funds must: 1) be private voluntary non-profits or units of
government, 2) be eligible to receive Federal funds, 3) have an accounting
system, 4) practice nondiscrimination, 5) have demonstrated the capacity to
deliver emergency food and/or shelter programs, and: 6) if they are a private
voluntary organization,they must have a voluntary board. Qualifying agencies

assistance, utility, and food assistance to residents in Gilchrist County.
Public or private voluntary agencies interested in applying for Emergency
Food and Shelter Program funds must contact Patricia Yates, Local Board
Chairperson at 352-463-4672 or Denise Hudson, Board Member at

Republican Executive
Committee Meeting
The Gilchrist County Republi-
can Executive Committee will hold
a meeting on December 17, at the
Bell Community Center. December
will be our organizational meeting.
The first order of business will be the
election of our officers.. Only mem-
bers who qualified for the committee
over the summer will be eligible to
vote and to hold an office. After the
election, we will conduct our usual
business. 'The meeting is open and
we encourage any Republicans to
attend. We did have a disappointing
Presidential election, but locally we
did pretty good. We are excited that
we will be represented in Washing-
ton by Congressman Yoho who will
be a strong conservative voice for
us. In Tallahassee we will be repre-
sented by Keith Perry. Our new State
Senator, Charlie Dean, was unop-
posed and therefore re-elected. We
elected two new Republican consti-
tutional officers, one new Republican
county commissioner and returned
one Republican. We also re-elected
a Republican to the School Board.
We have more Republicans elected
county-wide than democrats, but still
have work to do. Make plans on com-
ing out and getting involved with the
Republican Executive Committee.
Hope to see all of you there!

By Megan Stalvey
On Thursday, Dec. 6, Elsie Red-
fern won a brand new bicycle at
Christmas on Main Street in Tren-
ton. For most children this would be
a joyous event, but Elsie was a little
sad. Elsie had heard about the local
children that might be going without
gifts on Christmas and decided that
another child would enjoy the bike
more than she would. Elsie came into
The Journal office the next day with
a big smile on her face, and asked
where she could donate her bike. The
bicycle was then taken to Trenton El-
ementary School for their toy drive.
Elsie is the daughter of Gabrielle
Redfern and Jeffrey Bradley, of Mi-
ami Beach. Gabrielle and Jeffrey are
considering moving from Miami
Beach and mentioned that Trenton
may just be the town for them after
feeling such a sense of community at.
the Christmas on Main Street event.
