B) Carrie A Mizell
Seventy-five friends, familki
members and fellow judges gathered
last week to celebrate Judge Ed
Philman's 24 years of service to the
citizens of Gilchrist County and the
Eighth Judicial Circuit.
The retirement reception brought
many smiles to Philman's face, and
even laughter at times, as fellow
judges recalled experiences they
have shared with Philman during his
tenure.
Senior Judge Stan Morris said that
he has great respect for Philman and
his decision making; abilities as a
county judge.
"I feel privileged to have worked
with Judge Philman," Morris said.
He encouraged Philman to apply
for a senior judge position.
Currently, Philman is serving as a
Rotary District Governor for Florida's
District 6940, a position that has him
traveling throughout North Florida
and the Panhandle.
In September 2011, Philman


announced that he would not seek
re-election and his last day in office
. would be December 31. 2012.
"It has been an honor and a
privilege to have served as Gilchist
County Court Judge since January
1989," Philman said. "I have always
done my best to give each case
personal .consideration and be fair
and impartial."
Philman said he will always
remember and appreciate the support
and kindness shown to him both
during the election process, and
during his years of service.
"Thank you friends, supporters
and family for allowing me to serve
Gilchrist County in the position
of County Court Judge and for the
faith you have had in me," Philman
said. "I would also like to thank the
courthouse employees for all the hard
work they have done.
Sheree Lancaster, Gilchrist County
Judge-elect will be sworn in as
Gilchrist County Court Judge in early
January 2013.

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 20, 2012


With Christmas less than a week
away, most of us are right in the
middle of the last of our gift buying,
menu planning and general holiday
frenzy. As we all rush about trying to
pull off a great holiday, one our fami-
lies will remember for years to come,
let's not forget the real reason we cel-
ebrate Christmas. Please join me in
reading the beautiful, timeless story
of the birth of Jesus.




And it came to pass in those days
that a decree went out from Caesar
Augustus that all the world should be
registered.
This census first took place while
Quirinius was governing Syria.
So all went to be registered, every-
one to his own city.
Joseph also went up from Gali-
lee, out of the city of Nazareth, into
Judea, to the cityof David, which is
called Bethlehem, because he was of
the house and lineage of David, to be
registered with Mary, his betrothed
wife, who was with child.
So it was, that while: they were
there. the days were completed for
her to be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn
Son, and wrapped Him in swaddling
cloths, and laid Him in a manger, be-
cause there was no room for them in
the inn.
Now there were in the same coun-
try shepherds living out in the fields,
keeping watch over their flock by
night.
And behold, an angel of the Lord
stood before them, and the glory of
the Lord shone around them, and
they were greatly afraid.
Then the angel said to them, "Do
not be afraid, for behold, I bring you
good tidings of great joy which will
be to all people.
For there is born to you this day
in the city of David a Savior, who is
Christ the Lord.
And this will be the sign to you:
You will find a Babe wrapped in
swaddling cloths, lying in a man-
ger."


And suddenlyy there was with the
angel a multitude of the heavenly
host praising God and saying:
"Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, goodwill to-
ward men!" "
Luke 2:1-14 NKJV

Dear Editor,
I wonder if what our children are
being taught in school helps make
murder easier. We took God from
school, put Him in the closet and re-
leasedh humanism upon our children.
Sad, very sad. My prayers are with
all those families who have lost loved
ones.

Now and Then
By Carrie A. Mizell


Whitt and Allie Claire Mizell sat with Santa and Mrs. Claus over the
weekend.


Whoever said a picture is worth a
thousand words, must have had my
baby boy in mind.
Don't let that blonde hair and those
big blue eyes deceive you, he's a lit-
tle handful! And obviously not a fan
of Santa Claus.
I'm not sure if it was the red suit,
fuzzy beard, or jolly "Ho, Ho, Ho"
that garnered Santa screaming cries
of terror, but it was something.
Gracious sakes, seeing Santa with
a 4-year-old and a 1-year-old was an
experience this year. An experience, I
won't soon forget, that is!
Allie Claire was delighted at the.
prospect of sitting on Santa's lap. She
even insisted on coloring him a pic-
ture of the gifts she and Whitt would
like for Christmas before we left the
house.
This year may just be our best'
Christmas ever, as my little girl is ex-,
cited over all things Christmas, from
the Christmas Story of Jesus' birth
to the festive decorations, carols and
certainly the cookies, dotted with
crystalized sugar.
Allie Claire has asked for a Min-
nie cash register, that costs $25, and


that's it. Can you believe it? I'm not
so naive as to think that my child
won't come up with a list a mile long
in the years ahead, but for now, her
wishes are simple (and thankfully in-
expensive.)
I took the kids to see Santa and
Mrs. Claus on Saturday in St. Marys,
Georgia. Believe it or not, it's just up
the road from my house in Nassau
County. After reading in. the news-
paper that Santa would be at Orange
Hall Plantation, circa early 1800s, I
decided we should drop by. The Santa
sitting was free and the location was
spectacular
As my friends, Wendell and Mar-
tine Roberts can attest to; St. Marys,
Georgia is a very special, small
town.
If you're ever in-the area, stop by
and stroll the streets. St. Marys has
a lot to offer, from great old South-
ern homes, to boutique shopping and
fresh, off the boat shrimp, there is
something for everyone.
And if you see a feisty little blonde
boy on your visit, who's raising Cain
for absolutely no reason, chances are
good, he's mine!


priority in our lives (Matthew 6:33).
We must stop taking his name in
vain. We must begin by honoring the
Lord's day (Sunday) and respecting
the Lord's church. Above all we must
respect God (Psalms 111:9). We have
no idea how much God is willing to
bless us if we turn our nation back to
Him and make God our God!


Alexis de Tocqueville, a French
writer, visited the United States in
1831 and said, "I, sought for the
greatness of the U.S. in her commo-
dious harbors, her ample rivers, her
fertile fields, and boundless forests-
and it was not there. I sought for it in
her rich mines, her vast world com-
merce, her public school system, and
in her higher institutions of learning-
and it was not there. I looked for it
in her democratic Congress and the
matchless Constitution- and it was
not there. Not until I went into the
churches of America and heard her
pulpits flame with righteousness did
I understand the secret of her genius
and power. America is great because
America is good, and if America
ceases to be good, America will cease
to be great!"
Have we as a country ceased be-
ing good, being great? The U.S. is
a blessed country. God has shed his
grace on us from Texas to Alaska,
Maine to California! Why? Are we
somehow a special people, a people
that have earned and achieved our
place in history? How does what God
said about Israel apply to us today?
The Psalmist, writing about Israel,
says blessed is the nation whose God
is the Lord. The best laid plans of na-
tions and peoples is often frustrated
by God, if they are out of keeping
with his own plan and intention.
Daniel taught this lesson to Nebu-
chadnezzar (Daniel 4:17,25). It is ap-
parent that a nation and a people can
choose not to follow (God; to refuse
to be led by his mighty hand (Psalms
9:17). This would be done at a price.
No blessing is waiting for those who
choose such a path'!
Did those who came to this land
Sand pioneered it do so with faith
and the certainty that God's hand
led them here? (Hebrews 11:8). Pe-.
ter Marshall's prayer before the. U.S.
Senate: "Lord Jesus, thou who art the
way, the truth and the life; hear us as
we pray for the truth that shall make
all free. Teach us that liberty is not
only to be loved but also to be lived.
Liberty is.too precious a thing to be
buried in books. It.costs'too much to
be hoarded. Help us see that our lib-
erty is not the right to do with what
we please, but the opportunity to
please to do what is right."
Why has the U.S. been blessed
these many years? (1176-2012) Is the
reason a secret? Intellect? Ability?
"Blessed is the nation whose God is
Lord." We must desire to continue to
be a nation whose God is the Lord.
The Declaration of Independence
did not come into being until a day
of fasting and prayer had been ob-
served. It was kept by all the colo-
nies on May 17, 1776. The legend is
that the crack in the Liberty Bell is
the result of our forefathers ringing
it with such zeal and enthusiasm that
it cracked. We must begin today by
honoring the God who has saved us
and we must make His will out top


The Gilchrist County Journal would like to thank everyone in the com- -
munity who contributed toys or financial distributions this year, so dis-
advantaged students at Trenton Elementary School could have a Merry
Christmas.
On November 22, 2012, the Gilchrist County Journal ran an article
detailing the community's loss of a Toys For Tots program that in years
past has provided gifts for 400 to 500 children in Gilchrist County.
Bell Elementary School had a private donor cover the loss for an esti-
mated 15 families who were affected.
Trenton Elementary School had no such donor. Principal Lynette
Langford worked with the Gilchrist County Journal to see that an article
was printed stating the need for some 50 families affected by no Toys for
Tots this year.
The community exceeded all expectations by. dropping off toys and
sending checks so the guidance counselors at the school could go out
and purchase additional gifts for families struggling to make ends meet
this Christmas.
God bless everyone who stepped in to help local children have a very:
Merry Christmas.

Thank You America
(Kent Heaton)


Thank you America for giving us the land we live in that
allows for God to be taken out'of everything and the
wisdom of man to be exalted above all else. We can no
longer use God's name in honor nor can we mention him in
our schools, work place, community and sometimes in our
faith. The Bible is viewed as anything but a 'Holy' book
and the wisdom bound between its pages is scoffed at as
outdated, outmoded, and out of touch with the infinite
wisdom of man. Prayer is reviled because of its need to
believe in a higher being that is more interested in His
needs than the needs of man. The colors of red, white and
blue no longer embrace the hue of'a nation built upon the
basic tenets of God. The red blood of the innocent now
stain the nation that has white washed its moral code with
the fading colors of righteousness.
Thank you America for giving us a land where innocent
children are massacred in schools, movie houses and
communities across the land. The land of the free gives us
movies like "Hunger Games" that glorify children killing
children and then wonder how it could be lived out in a
Connecticut town. Television is saturated with the horrible
depictions of murder and torture in the name of CSI this
and CSI that and who would guess a show titled, "Criminal
Minds" would give anything worthy to the moral
consciousness of our people.
The agenda of homosexuals establishes the animal nature
of man that glorifies the carnal lusts of man. "Therefore
God also gave then up to uncleanness, in the lusts of
their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and


worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator,
who is blessed forever" (Romans 1:24-25). Since we are
animals in our sexual perversions then killing, maiming,
abusing children sexually or any such thing is acceptable.
For decades abortion has murdered the innocents yet born
because what is in woman is no longer viewed as life but
rather a blob of flesh. Killing a blob is justified; killing a
child is the next step.
Thank you America for giving us laws that no longer
protect the innocent, the elderly, the needy and the common
man. Everyone has a right to do what he wants to do and to
challenge that right is forbidden. The moral code of right
and wrong is built upon the whims of societies' needs and
the fluid opinions of men. Punishmeitt is excluded because
of rights. Consequence is never realized because of rights.
Our hypocrisy allows sexual perversions among adults but
forbids the same thing with children.
If our Creator allows the world to remain for the next one
hundred years or more history will reflect the failed wisdom
of man without God. Our country is not being destroyed
from forces beyond our borders we are doing too good of
a job ourselves. We are a nation of the free free to kill, free
to lust, free to abuse, free to do what we want to do any way
we want to do it. But know America that while the strings of
immorality march across our land in growing chorus that the
G9d of Heaven and Earth will have His day. Then you will
know there is a God that REIGNS (1 Chronicles 16:31;
Psalm 96:10). "The Lord reigns; let the peoples tremble!
He dwells between the cherubim; let the earth be moved"
(Psalms 99:1)!

Character Council's

Personality of the Month


:Submitted
Results of a national survey un-
derscore the vital need for truthfid-
ness today. Fo~ll w ing are several key
hndlnii from this survey of 8,600
high school students, conducted by
the Josephson Institute for Ethics.
71 percent admitted to cheating on
an exam in the last year.
(45 percent admitted to cheating 2
or more times.)
78 percent admitted to lying to a
teacher in the last year
(58 percent admitted to lying 2 or
more times.)
S92 percent admitted to lying to
their parents in the last year.
(79 percent admitted to lying 2 or
,more times.)
27 percent, more than 1 in 4 said
they would lie to get a job.
Truthfulness is vital for the smooth
function of daily life in any society.
It is also critical for effectiveness and
trust within a family, company, or a
,school community.
Truthfulness is habitually repre-
senting the truth, and speaking the
truth with sincerity.
SThere are three types of truth: natu-
ral truth, which comes from the natu-
ral universe; moral truth comes form
the Bible and provides the standard
by which moral actions are measured,
and lastly, factual truth involves the
flow of human events.
SThe Character Council of Gilchrist
County would like to introduce its
currant personality, Mrs. Jan Ran-
dolph. She is originally from McK-
eesport, Pennsylvania, but made
Florida her home beginning in 1971;
a real "transplant" she calls her-
self. Ms. Jan is currently serving as
a teacher's aide to students in the
Pre-K to Kindergarten at First Place
Academy.
When speaking of truthfulness,
Randolph shared, "I don't like to be
lied to, therefore, I am very care-
ful what I say and what promises I
pnake." She added, "If you are truth-
ful, you don't have to cover up what
vwas said with a lie, and then another
lie and another one. A person can be
tactful without lying." She believes
that consistency is the key in living
a life of earning future trust by accu-
rately reporting past facts.
- Being the honest person Randolph
iv, she shared that her favorite Bible
verses are Proverbs 6:16-19 "These
pix things doth the Lord hate: yea,
seven are detestable to Him: a proud
,look lying tongue, and hands that
shed innocent blood, a heart that de-


viseth wicked plans, feet that be swift
in running to mischief; a false witness
that speaks lies and he that soweth
discord among brethren." She men-
tioned that since God hates liars, and
she does not want God hating her, so
she tells the truth, even though it is
sometimes very challenging to carry
through with having one's words be
consistent with the truth.

your season holds moments to
treasure.
The holiday season can be so
busy, with shopping and decorat-
ing and chores. We all need to take


a moment to breathe and enjoy the
moment. The Christmas Social and
Dinner was one of those enjoyable
times, with excellent food catered by
315 Mainstreet Downtown Eatery.
The "white elephant" gifts made us
laugh, and we all sang Christmas car-
ols while Monnye Brown played the
piano.


The first meeting of 2013 will
be held on January 10, at the
Woman's Club. The Social will
start at 6:30 p.m. with the meeting
to follow at 7 p.m. Members are
encouraged to bring a guest who is
interested in joining the club. For
more information, visit www.Gil-
christCountyWomansClub.org.

Suwannee

River

Partnership/

IFAS discuss

applied

science
Submitted
Representatives from Suwannee
River Partnership (SRP) recently met
to discuss how best to apply scientific
research within the Suwannee River
Water Management District (Dis-
trict).
Members of the SRP, including the
Department of Agricultural and Con-
sumer Services (DACS), University
of Florida Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences (IFAS), Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
and District, met to explore ways to
improve coordination in applying
scientific research that benefits the
agriculture community and identify
future research needs.
The discussion centered on the lat-
est IFAS scientific research involving
nutrient reduction and water conser-
vation. The group then explored how
the research can be applied to agri-
cultural and nursery operations. The
research elevated the feasibility of
treatment processes to reduce nutri-
ent levels in springs.
"We are looking for the next gener-
ation of Best Management Practices"
stated Ann Shortelle, Ph.D, Execu-
tive Director of the District.
Advanced irrigation scheduling
was discussed as a means of more
accurately applying water when the
plant has a need. Using irrigation
tools such as soil moisture sensors
and weather stations, a producer can
irrigate more efficiently and reduce
energy costs.
Don Quincey, District Governing
Board Chair, pointed out that "ad-
vanced irrigation technology is the
way to a better environment while in-
creasing agricultural productivity."
The SRP members agreed to meet
quarterly to make certain that the ag-
ricultural community is aware of re-
cent scientific research that benefits
our water resources and their opera-
tions.

Mark the calendar
4-H County Events Day will be
Saturday, Jan. 26 at Trenton Elemen-
tary School.

"Freedomfest" provides

gifts for local families


By Steven Hurlburt, /
Assistant to Pastor Daniel McGehee
Crusades for Christ, Revival Min-
istries International, and Micheletti
Enterprises partnered together to host
the "Freedomfest Christmas Celebra-
tion," which was held in Williston,
last week under the leadership of
Pastor Daniel McGehee.
The event took place nightly, start-
ing at 6 p.m., from December 9th to
the 14th, underneath the bigtop tent,
on Hwy. 27, coming into Williston.
Many sponsors from across Levy
County and the state of Florida pulled
together in less than thirty days to
make the "Freedomfest Christmas
Celebration" an extremely successful
event for the children and families of
Levy County. Over $12,500 in food
was cooked over the six nights, free
of charge for the county. The River
Bible Institute, out of Tampa, spon-
sored $100,000 in college scholar-
ships. Over $7,000 in gift cards and
cash were given away at the event.
b ml;l~BB~,~as ... ....~e~


WhiteFord, of Chiefland, along with
five business sponsors, pulled togeth-
er to help sponsor 2000 Ford Taurus,
which was given away on Friday
night.
The seemingly impossible task
of providing toys for the children
of Levy County was made possible
and 4,500 toys and bikes were made
available for the children of Levy
County and the surrounding commu-
nities. The greatest miracle of all was
seeing 1,819 people from across the
county and beyond make the decision
to follow Jesus Christ as their person-
al Savior and Lord. Pastor Daniel and
the entire "Freedomfest" team would
like to thank all sponsors and the
good citizens of the city of Williston,
Levy County, and beyond, for mak-
ing this year's Christmas celebration
a blessing to the crossroads region of
central Florida. The next "Freedom-
fest" event will be held soon in the
Bronson area so watch the newspaper
for upcoming dates and location."

Bell, Trenton play


to the wire
In a battle that would come down
to the last shot, Trenton varsity boys
held off a hard charging Bell team to
take a 46-45 victory Friday night in
Bell. This game is always a tough bat-
tle, as both coaches will admit. "The
fans got their monies worth, but as a
coach it was a nail biter," explained
Coach Patrick Green of Trenton.
The Bulldogs behind John Rowe's
20 points and 14 rebounds jumped
out to an early lead 10-9 in the first
period. The Tigers behind Hamp
Cheevers 21 points and Cedric Stokes
12 points respectively outscored the
Bulldogs 17-7 in the second period to
take a 26-17 lead at intermission.
The Tigers came out shooting in
the third period and increased their
lead to 37-26 by the end of the third
period. Coach Mehl's Bulldogs were
fired up in the final period as they out
shot the visiting Tigers 19-9 but were
unable to hold their momentum as
the clock ran out with the final scored
46-45.
The 3-point leaders were Hamp
Cheevers and Cedric Stokes for the
Tigers as they had 3 each. The Bull-
dogs were lead by Townsend and
Yoder. Josh Thomas had the game
high assists as he gave three for the


Bulldogs and he recorded 12 points
respectively in this game.
The Bulldogs record is 3-5 and the
Tigers earn the first win of the season
with a 1-7 mark. Trenton will travel
to Bronson Friday night for a tip off
at 7:30 p.m.

Gilchrist County Schools review

emergency procedures following

Connecticut school shooting


SThe safety of the students' attend-
ing Gilchrist County Schools is on
the forefront of Superintendent Rob
Rankin's mind in light of the recent
tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary in
Connecticut.
Incidents like this provide opportu-
nities for the schools to review exist-
ing plans and discuss how to respond
in the event a similar situation oc-
curred in one of the schools.
The following activities occurred
this week in order to heighten aware-
,ness and increase preparedness:
'* A phone home message was pro-
,vided to inform parents and offer re-
gssurance regarding the safety of the
schools.
There was a moment of silence
,on Monday morning. in recognition
of the lives lost at Sandy Hook El-
.ementary.
.,* All school principals held faculty
Meetings to review current emergen-
cy plans and protocol.
The School Resource Officer ro-


tated through all four schools.
Met with Gilchrist County's
Emergency Management Team to re-
view procedures from a District per-
spective.
The Gilchrist County School Dis-
trict has a Crisis Intervention Plan
which includes protocol for instances

of on campus violence, dealing with
natural disasters, accidents, and com-
munications which accompany each
of these emergencies. School admin-
istrators review the emergency plans
annually and review them each year
with teachers. Drills are scheduled
throughout the year in an effort to
practice how to respond in the event
of a real emergency. In addition,
each teacher has an Emergency Pro-
cedure Quick Reference Guide which
includes step-by-step instructions on
how to respond to a vast range of
emergencies.
"Our hearts are saddened by the
tragedy which, occurred at Sandy
Hook Elementary. My hope is that an
event like this would never happen in
our community. We take the safety of
our students and personnel seriously.
We will continue to review our prac-
tice and always strive to maintain a
safe campus for our students, faculty
and staff", Rankin said.
Superintendent Rankin added,
"We know we are entrusted with our
counties most prized possession- our
children."
