Sheriff places officers in public schools

Bobby Schultz also made significant changes within the Sheriff's Office administration during his first week in office


By Carrie A. Mizell
Within days of being sworn in, Gil-
christ County Sheriff Bobby Schultz
began re-organizing personnel within
the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice, in an effort to better serve the
citizens of Gilchrist County. He also
placed deputies at each of Gilchrist
County's four public schools, follow-
ing a recent bomb threat at Trenton
Elementary School.
In a telephone interview last week,
Schultz confirmed widespread specu-
lation that he has made initial chang-
es in personnel within the Sheriff's
Office.
Those changes include the hiring
of Bell resident, Jeff Manning, who
will serve as a lieutenant in charge of
the criminal investigations division.
Manning replaces Lt. David Ader-
holt, who had served as lead inves-
tigator under former Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter. Currently, Adherholt is


working in the sheriff's judicial di-
vision, serving inside the Gilchrist
County Courthouse.
Schultz also promoted Troy Davis
to lieutenant of the patrol division.
Davis is replacing Lt. Patrick Cor-
dasco, who is no longer employed
by the Gilchrist County Sheriff's Of-
fice. As a lieutenant, in charge of the
patrol division, Davis and the patrol
officers are responsible for patrol-
ling and answering calls for service
within Gilchrist County's 344 square
miles.
Though he had worked as an inves-
tigator under former Sheriff Daniel
Slaughter, Edwin Jenkins has been
promoted to lieutenant tasked with
administrative and training .duties.
Lt. Sheryl Brown will remain in
charge of the sheriff's corrections di-
vision, Schultz explained.
"I am still assessing some of the
things' being done and considering


Lt. Jeff Manning
Criminal Investigations

ways that things might be done more
effectively," Schultz said. "I reserve
the right to make changes to improve
in the future."


The sheriff has not only made
changes within his administration,
but he is also making an effort to put
officers in each of Gilchrist County's


four public schools after a bomb
threat was reported at TES..
, "I want the Sheriff's Office to be
more of a presence within the schools


Lt. Edwin Jenkins

than it has been in the past," Schultz
explained. "I take the safety of our
children and teachers very serious-
ly."

Report shows cancer death


rates high in North Central



Florida compared to state


Submitted
Nolth Central Florida has the
highest cancer mortality) rates in
the state The recently released
North Central Florida Cancer Re-
port 2013 points to the need for
cancer control efforts in our region,
especially in rural areas where the
burden of cancer is greatest.
The report,, produced by Well-
Florida Council for the North Cen-
tral Florida Cancer Control Col-
laborative (NCFCCC), includes
a wide range of cancer data such
as cancer death rates, cancer inci-
dence rates, cancer related emer-
gency room visits and hospital!
discharge data. This epidemiologic
profile of eleven counties in North
Central Florida highlights dispari-
ties between the region and Florida
as well as disparities between gen-
ders, races, ethnicities and coun-
ties.
According to the report, the age-
adjusted death rate of all cancers is
28 percent higher in North Central
Florida than in the state. Though
cancerr incidence rates in the region
are lower than the state, people in
North Central Florida are dying of
cancer more frequently.
"This discrepancy indicates a
need for improvement in cancer
screening, education, awareness,


access to healthcare services and oth-
er )>\stemic issues." said Jeff Feller.
chief executive officer of WellFlorida
Council.
Llng cancer is the number one
cancer in Florida and in North Central
Florida. But in North Central Florida,
the death rate from lung cancer is 42
percent higher than the state rate.
Other disparities exist. According
to Lauren Pollock, associate planner
at WellFlorida Council and coordi-
nator of NCFCCC, "The percent of
advanced-stage cancers diagnosed in
North Central Florida for colorectal,
breast, cervical and prostate cancers
are all higher than the percent of ad-
vanced-stage cancers diagnosed for
the state. This is especially important
to note because there are screenings
that exist for each of these cancers."
One of NCFCCC's purposes is to
collect data to determine the great-
est cancer, related needs in the area
and develop and carry out plans to
meet those needs. The North Central
Florida Cancer .Report 2013 will be
used to assist NCFCCC in establish-'
ing priorities and planning for future
regional cancer control activities.
The report is also useful for health-
care professionals, researchers, grant
writers, cancer stakeholders and any-
one interested in the region's latest
cancer statistics.

COOKING AND CARRYING' ON


This week's recipe is for scones, I
know, I know, it sounds pretty fancy,
but actually a scone is nothing more
than a souped up biscuit.
The Scottish started making scones
in the 1500s and later the British be-
gan serving scones and clotted cream
with afternoon tea, sometime in the
1800s,
When you look at the ingredients
for scones they are very similar to
a biscuit. Making a pan of biscuits
is second nature to most Southern
women.
Thinking back a few years, I re-
member learning to make biscuits,
thanks to the patience of the late and
very sweet Lillie Mae Gamble'.
I'll always be thankful, to Mrs.
Gamble for taking me under her wing
and teaching me to make buttermilk
biscuits.
Mrs. Gamble and I stood in her
kitchen shoulder to shoulder, we
each had a bowl of flour and all the
makings for biscuits and I followed
her lead step by step and learned her
technique.
John and I had just married, some
33 years ago, and I so wanted to sur-
prise him with a pan of good biscuits.
Needless to say, he was impressed
with my efforts and has been thank-
ful to Mrs. Gamble ever since.
. After years of eating Aunt Arma's
biscuits, scalding hot, right out of the
wood stove at the'hunting camp, I had
pretty high standards when it came
to biscuits. Aunt Arma, my mother
and grandmother (Shannie) could all
make that ol' wood stove cook like
nobody's business. They understood
what type of fire to build to bake with
and just how to set the damper. They
would give a pan, or in our case a lard
can lid, a quarter turn as the biscuits
began browning, until the whole
pan was evenly browned. Baking
biscuits, or cooking in general, on a
wood stove is almost a lost art in this
part of country now. What is not lost
however is my memory of Shanime's
fried apple tarts and Aunt Arma's
wonderful biscuits, both cooked on
that old black stove. When Shannie
was frying, she would have that stove
so hot my Poppy would say, "Boys,
she gonna burn down the kitchen fry-
ing them tarts."
Ah, sweet, sweet memories from a
much simpler time.
I have always stayed clear of scones
because they seemed pretty fancy to,
me. Mostly when reading a recipe for
scones I would always find sugar as
an ingredient and sugar and biscuits
just don't mix. The following recipe
does not have any sugar, instead it
has bacon, onions and cheese which
sounds real good to me.


A acom aind ee
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons cold butter
3/4 cup grated Cheddar cheese
2 tablespoons minced green onions
4 slices fried crumbled bacon
1/2 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix
flour, baking powder and salt togeth-
er in a medium size bowl. Cut butter
into flour with two knives, or pastry
cutter (or your hands) until butter is
the size of small peas. In another bowl
mix together cheese, onions, bacon
and buttermilk. Pour liquid mixture
into flour mixture and gently work
together with large spoon or hands
until dough just comes together. Do
not overwork because it will make
the scones tough. Place ball of dough
onto greased pan and pat and shape
into a round disk shape that is about
7 inches round and about 3/4 inches
thick. Brush the dough with a little
buttermilk, then using a knife score
the dough about halfway through to
make 8 pie shape wedges. Bake for
20 to 25 minutes.


Yet Again

This time the victims are our
children, their promise cut short by
someone on a "rampage." And, yet
again, I listen to broadcasters strug-
gling with the basic vocabulary; "de-
ranged," "mental problems," "men-
tal," cautiously avoiding the recently
banned term, "lunatic," but thinking
it. And, yet again, come the calls for
"a national conversation about men-
tal health." But we are discussing the"
.w, ong Assu,, We want tQ ppedCt who
will be the next "madman" behind
these "senseless tragedies,"- when we
should be working to prevent them.
The conversation must therefore
begin with education. We already
have the tools. Mental Health First
Aid is a 12-hour course designed
to teach anyone interested how to
recognize- and safely address men-
tal health crises. This is comparable
to traditional -first aid training, but
many of us do not see it as essential
until tragedy strikes our own com-
munities. Traditional first aid teaches
nonprofessionals the best ways to
approach physical health emergen-
cies-wounds, heart attacks, strokes;

nonprofessionals the best ways to ap-
proach mental health emergencies-
suicidal thoughts, hallucinations, un-
controlled rage.
All of us need this education. We
need it now, in order to eliminate the
stigma that our langitage conveys-to
make our use of psychiatric terms as
fluent as those associated with other
equally serious illnesses. We need it
everywhere, so that every community
can recognize the signs of psychiat-
ric illness, and can effectively, com-
passionately respond-connecting
friends, family, and neighbors with,
psychiatric illnesses to the treatment
they need; when they need it.
We need to acknowledge that state
after state-including those like
Florida already at the bottom of the
funding list-have made drastic re-
ductions in treatment funds. Treat-
ment forpsychiatric disorders is more
dependent on public dollars than any
other. And even when treatment is
covered by insurance, it is highly
managed. No insurance plan issues a
separate policy for heart disease, or
for cancer, or for diabetes. But most
insurance plans commission a second
company to .administer psychiatric
benefits-often more restrictively
than for other illnesses. How many
barriers must people whose illness
hampers their brain function jump
through to get care? Would we toler-
ate that for any other illness?
In our daily lives, in state and fed-
eral governments, and in how we
provide healthcare from first aid to
hospital care, we put treatment for
brain disorders- in a separate silo.
Then we wonder why we continually
face devastation. We need a national
conversation that leads to a national
initiative to better research, under-
stand, and address these illnesses.
Everyone in the community can,
with training, identify and respond to
these illnesses. In that educated com-
munity, sufferers would be connected
to professional help before a tragedy
occurs. We can begin this initiative
now, by adequately funding treat-
ment for psychiatric illness in the
public and private sector. Or we can
stay as we are, waiting for the next
tragedy-made truly senseless by
our willingness to let it happen.

Almost a million dollars meant to

When a potentially toxic form of
blue-green algae named cyanobacte-

"Change is inevitable."
I remember one of my first profes-
sors at Lake City Community Col-
lege announcing that to my class,
which was filled to the brim with
anxious college freshmen at the time.
I cringed when she said it, because
like so many others, I am a creature
of habit, who loves old things. You
know I must be old school, since I
named my daughter Allie Claire after
her great-great-grandmother.
Many years have passed since I
was a college freshman, but that bit
of wisdom has stuck with me. These
days, my red hair is showing a few
wayward signs of gray, -no doubt
courtesy of Thing 1 and Thing 2, who
keep me hopping night and day.
As I sat in the City of Trenton's
Planning and Zoning Board meet-
ing last Tuesday, I recalled Professor
Warner's words, while listening to
local residents speak in favor of and
against McDonald'sTM and Family
Dollar TMcoming to town.
And though I wish it were a Chic-
fil-ATM, or a PublixTM, I must say, I
was pleased to see the site plan pass
unanimously, because I think Trenton
needs to grow. Don't get me wrong,
I hate the thought of the town's his-
toric May House being demolished
to allow for fast food and a Family
DollarTM, I understand that it's what
has to be done.
Ideally, someone who has the means
to move the 1920s home would have
stepped forward and gladly taken it
off Ted Burt's hands, but the cost in-
volved with such a project was just
too high for the average John Doe, or
Carrie Mizell, to afford.
I would be remiss if I didn't pub-


'licly praise Trenton City Manager
Taylor Brown for putting in count-
less hours, working with project
developer JJ Lamberson, of Twin
Rivers Capital LLC, to see that this
estimated $1.7 million project will
be cohesive with the community it is
coming to.
The 10,924 square' feet, duplex-
style commercial building, will not
only bring much-needed tax rev-
enue to the city, but it will also bring
streetscaping along the northern and
eastern boundaries of the property,
which face Trenton United Method-
ist -Church and First Baptist Church.
That streetscaping will include park-
ing spaces that are paved with brick,
curbs, gutters, sidewalks, lamp posts
and landscaping. The exterior of the
building will also be made of alternat-
ing brick and stone, so that it blends
well wvith the community.

Daily Load (TMDL) program to as-
sist Santa Fe River Basin farmers in
retrofitting their equipment with "fer-
tigation" capabilities. (Fertigation
basically cuts down on river pollu-
tion by allowing farmers to combine
fertilizer and irrigation, both saving
water and limiting run-off pollution.)
* The goal was to reduce by more
than one million pounds the amount
of nitrogen entering the Santa Fe wa-
tershed, while potentially saving 670
millions gallons of irrigation water.
The money was specified to.be used
for,.the Santa Fe. River Basin ,alone
and the program was designed to be
a "test case" tb measure thle impact of
the new environmentally friendly ir-
rigation and fertilization technique.
The Suwannee River Water Man-
agement District, made a commit-
ment of $180,000 of in-kind services
to subsidize farmers who were will-
ing to take part in the voluntary pro-
gram.
DEP Secretary Herschel T. Vine-
yard Jr. put out press statements say-
ing, "The DEP shares the concerns of
local residents and river enthusiasts
when nutrient impacts, such as algae
blooms, prevent us from enjoying our
beautiful waterways. We are commit-
ted to working with local govern-
ments and stakeholders to implement
both long- and short-term strategies
to address nutrient impacts in the
Santa Fe River basin."
The program was fully underway
last year, but in less than six months
the lion's share of the $900,000 went
instead to fertigation projects in the
Suwannee River Basin.
Out of the known 28 farms that
have agreed to the terms and condi-
tions of the monetary grants, only six
are in the Santa Fe River Basin.
"The state agencies said they did
not want to let money possibly sit
idle while waiting for Santa Fe basin
farmers to agree to fertigation ret-
rofitting. So they sent our money to
another river basin altogether," said
Merrillee Malwitz-Jipson, president
of Our Santa Fe River, Inc.
"Public trust in government's will-
ingness and ability to effectively ad-
dress environmental problems is cer-
tainly shaken by poor decisions like
this one," she said.

Circuit judge dismisses


Roux's civil lawsuit


By Carrie A. Mizell
Circuit Judge Toby S. Monaco has
filed a Final Order of Dismissal on a
,civil lawsuit brought by former can-
didate for Gilchrist County sheriff,
'Robert Roux against Robert "Bobby"
Schultz III and the Gilchrist County
Canvassing Board.
Both Roux and Schultz, along
with their attorneys, appeared before
Judge Monaco on January 3, after
Roux filed a Complaint to Contest
the November 6, 20012 Gilchrist
County Sheriff General Election
Shortly after Thanksgiving. Schultz's
attorneys followed with a Motion to
Dismiss that was filed on December
10, 2012.
After listening to attorneys rep-
resenting all parties, Judge Monaco
considered the arguments and found
'the complaint failed to "state a cause
of action upon which relief may be
granted."
Roux sought to have Schultz, who
*was successfully elected sheriff in
'the General Election, determined in-
eligible pursuant to Section 102.168
(3)(b) of the Florida Statutes, for not
being a resident of Gilchrist County
at the time of qualifying. Roux's at-
torney, John S. Winkler argued Telli
vs. Broward County, in support of his
contention .that a residency require-
ment can be added to the constitu-
tional qualifications for office. Roux's
attorney also argued that applying
the "qualified elector" clause to the
time of taking office is illogical, as
that view would be inconsistent with
that portion of the oath that requires a
candidate to presently affirm that the
candidate "has qualified for no other
public office in the state, the term of
which office or any part thereof runs
concurrent with that of the office he
or she seeks."
Schultz's attorney Mark Herron
sought dismissal of the action with
prejudice.
In this case, Roux's attorney had to
establish two elements for his cause
of action: A residency requirement
for the. county office of sheriff at the
time of qualifying and that a failure
to establish residency at qualifying is
sufficient to disqualify the successful
candidate.


Robert Roux


Roux's attorney argued that an
oath clause referencing the county
where one is a qualified elector; re-
quires a candidate to fill in the blank
space with the name of the county in
Florida that he or she is a registered
voter at that point in time. Schultz re-
sided in Levy County when he swore
oath but placed Gilchrist County in
the blank.
Judge Monaco stated that the oath
at issue is a general template used
as part of the qualifying package for
nomination or election to a number
of offices.
However, Roux's attorney argued
that reading the "qualified elec-
tor" clause in the oath in the future
tense (that is, that he will be quali-
fied to take office if elected), renders
the "single office" clause in the oath
(an affirmation in the present tense)
meaningless, and that therefore the
clauses should be reconciled so that
they each apply in the present tense.
Judge Monaco found that this ar-
gument had no merit.
"This is a clear requirement which
exists at the time of qualifying, and
which prevents people from qualify-
ing for more than one office," Judge
Monaco stated. "However, Plaintiff
[Roux] does not point out any statute
or constitutional provision which sets
forth a residency or qualified elector
requirement applicable to the time of
qualifying as a candidate as opposed
to the time of holding office. He only
argues that because the "single of-

fice" portion of the oath applies to the
time of qualifying, that the "qualified
elector" portion of the oath should
likewise."
The Florida Supreme Court has
explicitly stated that the language
"he is qualified", in the oath that
reads more fully: "he is qualified un-
der the Constitution and the laws of
Florida to hold the office for which
he desires to be nominated", means
the candidate "has the qualifications
for the. office for which he desires to
be nominated", means the candidate
"has the qualifications for the office
to be made applicable when elected
and the term of the office begins."
Judge Monaco cited opinions of
the Florida Division of Elections as
supporting the view that the qualifi-
cations one must possess for public
office, including residency, are ef-
fective at the commencement of the
term of office.
"Dismissal with prejudice to the
action is warranted," Judge Monaco
stated.
SA dismissal with prejudice indi-
cates misconduct on the party who
filed the claim and forbids a party
from refiling the case. However,
Roux will have 30 days to appeal the
ruling.

By Geneva Cornwell
Gratefulness is a choice. Grateful
people choose to look beyond their
present conditions and concentrate
on what they can learn though every
situation. Gratefulness is "letting
others know by my words and actions
how they have benefited my life."
Gratefulness is. not a passive
thought, but an active expression.
Gratefulness is counting the benefits;
identifying benefactors; making
time to thank, expressing thanks, and
simplifying expectations. Because
gratefulness is not dependent on cir-
cumstances, anyone can choose to be
grateful by looking beyond present
problems, and recognizing either cur-
rent or future benefits.
This month, the Character Council
would like to introduce Ms. Elaine
Ewart, as its January Personality. She
made Gilchrist County her home in
1998, although her formative years
were spent in Plantation, Florida.
She is a single mother of two grown
children, and was pleased to share the
pride she has and the joy she finds in
her five granddaughters.

YWIIKV/


As a long-time single mother, Ew-
art told this writer that she feels that
gratefulness is important in her life
because it demonstrates to other peo-
ple that.she cares about them.
As a Christian she lets others know
that she prays for thqm, also, for
she has learned much. about prayer
over the years about how it changes
things, especially toward herself and
her desire to be grateful.
Most of her adult life, Ms. Ewart
has been in the accounting field, al-
though she spent fourteen years as
a Mary Kay Cosmetic consultant,
and was a real estate agent for sev-
eral years. She presently works as
an accountant for the City of Archer.
Ewart proclaimed that she thanks
God each day for His provision and
is grateful for her family and friends.
She expressed that to really know
a person, one must learn about that
person by allowing him/her to share
their joys and sorrows. She said "In
order to acquire gratefulness a person
must learn how to look at the good in
others before making any kind of a
judgment about them."


Elaine Ewart
Besides Psalm 91, one of Ewart's
favorite Scripture verses comes from
1 Thessalonians 5:18, which reads,
"In everything give thanks; for this
is the will of God, in Christ Jesus
concerning you." In showing grate-
fulness, a person maintains a higher
standard in life, and that comes by
shifting the focus from self to others,
while determining to express an atti-
tude of gratitude.

Judas Changed His Mind
(Kent Heaton)


It was clear that what had been set in motion was not
going to -change. The verdict of condemnation was
delivered and Judas realized that nothing was going to
change the events of that day. His motives for betrayal
amounted only to thirty pieces of silver; the price of a
slave. Seeing that Jesus was condemned, the apostle brings
back the blood money to the chief priests and elders and
acknowledges he sinned "by betraying innocent blood"
(Matthew 27:4). His plea for intervention was unheard and
throwing the money on the floor of the temple Iscariot went
and hanged himself.
The text says that Judas was "remorseful" or "repented
himself." He realized too late that his betrayal brought his
friend and rabbi to the blood thirsty hearts of the enemies
of the Christ. In redemptive irony he brings the price of a
slave to the temple of the Lord and throws it at the feet of
the hypocritical leaders of God'p people who had long ago
concerned itself more with paying "tithe of mint and anise
and cumin, and ... neglected the weightier matters of the
law: justice and mercy and faith" (Matthew 23:23).
Judas changed his mind but it was too late. There was
nothing he could do. The money meant nothing to him now
and the consequence of a 'moment's reckless folly' brought
the Christ, the Son of God to the courts of men to die on a
cross. He had changed his mind but God had not changed
His mind. Judas was a good man. He served in the inner
circle of the Lord preaching, healing, performing miracles
and hearing the teachings of Jesus first hand. His deep
remorse shows how much he loved the Lord and because of
allowing Satan to storm the bastion of his heart and
opening the door he went and hung himself in despair. His


mind was changed, but his actions could not be taken back.
It is impossible to know what would have happened if
Judas had not hung himself. Clearly the end result was
suicide and a name held through history as the one who
betrayed the Lord. Peter betrayed the Lord but recovered to
preach, with the eleven on the Day of Pentecost, the
redemption of man through the blood of Christ. But in the
story of Judas changing his mind could not turn back the
hands of time.
In contrast, the parable of the two sons in Matthew
21:28-32 shows what man can do when given the
opportunity. "A man had two sons, and he came to the first
and said, 'Son, go, work today in my. vineyard.' He
answered and said, 'I will not,' but afterward he regretted
it and went" (Matthew 21:28-29). The second son told his
father he would go but then decided not to go. The
application Jesus makes is to show how the first son did the
right thing by changing his mind from rebellion to
obedience. Sometimes a change of mind brings a blessing.
In the case of Judas his mind changed but the circumstance
did not change.
Every decision we make has consequence. If we do
nothing there is consequence. The challenge is to make
certain the choices we make will not create events that are
unchangeable. The sacrifice of Jesus is given to all men to
obey the will of the Father, but the decision to reject that
invitation can have eternal consequences that will never be
changed. Be like the son of Matthew 21 and change your
mind to do what God expects of you. Make that choice now
before it is too late.

The Food Pantry of Gilchrist
,County would like to thank the many
volunteers, businesses, and individu-
al sponsors for your contributions in
2012. Because of your support we
have provided food assistance for
an average of 3000 people a month
in the Tri-County and surrounding
areas, through monthly food distri-
butions, the Back Pack program and
emergency food assistance. A special
THANK YOU goes to the Gilchrist
County Board of County Commis-
sioners, City of Trenton, Bell Town
Council and Pine Grove Baptist
Church. You have been a true bless-
ing to our cause "People Feeding
People".
We ,would also like to share with
you some of the changes that have
.taken place in 2012. In May, the
original founder of the Senior Citi-,;
zens' Food Pantry of Gilchrist Coun-
ty, Mr. Rick Weder, stepped down
due to health reasons. We continue to
keep Mr. Rick in our thoughts as, we
pray for his healing.
The new Director is Mr. Rick
Clark and Mr. Mike MacKenzie is
the new Assistant Director. Financial
oversight is provided by Mr. Taylor
Brown as Treasurer.
The name of the organization was
changed to The Food Pantry of Gil-
christ County, Inc. to reflect that as-
sistance is provided to all members
of the community regardless of age.
We are very excited about the
changes taking place and want to
assure the community that we will
continue to serve the people in the
tri-county.areas through our monthly
food distributions and emergency
food assistance. We hope to continue
in 2013 to be a participant in the back
pack program. The Pantry has been
distributing about 150 back packs per
week to children in public and private
schools locally in Gilchrist County.
We are currently seeking grants and
contributions to continue our partici-
pation in this program in 2013.
The Food Pantry depends on your
contributions and fund raiser events,
such as yard. sales, boot drives,
canned food drives, etc. We are plan-
ning a yard sale fund raiser to happen
Thursday, January 31st and Friday,
February 1, from 8am 2pm. WT

When someone is really impor-'
tant to us, we will go to great lengths
to be with them, or even just to see
them or hear their voice. Ayoung
man recently told me about how
his girlfriend, who is not a morn-
ing person, came out at 7 a.m., to
cheer him on in a 5K he was run-
ning. Going out of her way to be
there was a loud and clear statement
to him that he is valuable to her! A
Samaritan Woman shared a similar
experience as Jesus contradicted the
cultural norm between the Jews and
Samaritans to find her at the well:.
"So He (Jesus) came to a town
in Samaria called Sychar, near the
plot of ground Jacob had given to
his son Joseph. Jacob's well was
there, and Jesus, tired as He was
from His journey, sat down by the
well. It. was about the sixth hour.
.When a Samaritan woman came
to draw water, Jesus said to her,
"Will -you give me a drink?" (His
disciples had gone into the town to
buy food.) The Samaritan woman
said to Him, "You are a Jew and I
am a Samaritan woman. How can
you ask me for a drink?" (For Jews
do not associate with Samaritans.)
John 4:5-9
As the writer of this gospel, John
was inspired by the Holy Spirit to
tell. us of the prejudice between the
Jews and Samaritans that we may'
'see beyond the' surface of what is
taking place. One thing is certain;
the Scriptures do not condone prej-
udice in this passage, but simply re-
flect the condition that was present.
Jesus went out of His way to pursue
her despite this condition.
By definition, the word prejudice
means to pre-judge. This happens
when we arrive at an opinion qf a
person, or group of people, without
any input on their part. This being
the caSe, the origins of prejudice
can usually be traced to the past. In
II Kings 17:21-24, the Old Testa-
ment records the Assyrian conquest
and' resettlement of the nation of
Israel by bringing.in people from
many other countries. 'This mix-
ture of people came to be known
as Samaritans and was despised
by the Jews, so much so, that the
typical travel routes involved go-
ing the long 'way around the region
of Samaria. avoiding the area at all
costs.


Angie Land
Prejudice can be a diffictilt sub-
ject to discuss, because it .often
evokes strong emotions.
SHowever, it is unlikely, that any
of us avoid stopping by the store
for fear of bumping into a Samari-
tan, so this passage can help us
look at prejudice a little more ob-
jectively. Here are a few truths we
can observe:
* Prejudice is a waste of time
and energy. Prejudice may not
cause us to travel completely
Around an entire town, but it
will never work for the build-
ing up of the kingdom of God.
Sadly, we have all witnessed
evidence of how it works
against it.
* Prejudice never travels alone;
pride land fear are constant '
companions. Consider why'
prejudice demands. isolation.
If we get to know someone
personally, those pre-judged
ideas become harder to jus-
tify.
*' Walking with Christ will ex-
pose any prejudice' in our
thinking. In the parable of the
Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-
37) Jesus pushed the issue of
a Samaritan"being the "'neigh-
bor" to the Jew.
It is' God's desire that none
should perish, but that all will have
eternal life...prejudice gets in the
way by preventing the spread of-
the gospel to everyone. As we seek
to walk with Christ, let's make sure
we only go out of our way to pur-
'sue, not avoid, because every heart
matters.
Blessings.

Springhouse

Quilter's

grow to 115

members

By Lois Scott
Springhouse Quilter's began their
new year with a lot of excitement and
fun on January 8 after ending a suc-
cessful year making quilted items and
sharing great fellowship with their
quilting friends. The year ended after
a great Christmas party in December
where the 2012 raffle quilt was given
away. The winner of the wonderful
blue quilt was Penny Deane of Cross
City.
The 2013 raffle quilt is in the pro-
cess of being pieced and quilted with
tickets soon to be on sale. This quilt
will be a Grandmother's Flower Gar-
den design.
Kathy Beaulieu of Bronson started
the new year on the morning of Janu-
ary 8, presiding at the meeting with
45 members of the day group in at-
tendance. Later in the day, the Nite
Owls had their meeting with 40 ad-
ditional members in attendance.
Springhouse Quilters has grown to
approximately 115 members from the
tri-county area. For new members
beginning this year, quilting classes
will be offered to get their quilting
skills developed. Quilting classes
give new members a chance to make
new friends and learn to share ideas
with others. New members joining
Springhouse totals 12 this year.
During the morning meeting,
Cheryl Watson shared some music
from a collection of songs from sing-
ing quilter, Kathy Miller. Also, the
group was presented the challenge of
making baby quilts and items for a
non-profit group in Dixie County.
Springhouse is planning for the up-
coming, March 16, quilt festival and
hope to have many items for sale in
their gift shop area.
For information on Springhouse
Quilters check out their web site,

Ayers residents

ring in 2013

In true Ayers Health and Rehabili-
tation Center form, we rang in the
New Year in style, and with a party
of course! We served sparkling juice
and finger foods and watched the ball
drop!
The year 2012 brought many of you
joy and laughter, family and friends.
As for the partners of Ayers Health
and Rehab, with each year that goes
by we gain 120 family members, a
new grandmother or grandfather, not
very many of you can say that now
can you?
We build relationships that last and
that mean more to us than even we
realize at times.

Log Cabin Quilters


The Log Cabin Quilters met Thurs-
day, January 10th, at the Levy Coun-
ty Quilt Museum. We were very
pleased to see our Northern friends
from Massachusetts and New York
back for the winter. We had several
completed projects that were brought
in for us to see. Several worked on
hand quilting and others were work-
ing on their own projects. Over the
next few weeks, you'll see Alice
Mae's Crazy Tie throw, Mary's two
quilts and Kay's stack and whack
quilt.
The Log Cabin Quilters were
formed in 1983 and has no dues. The
group is made of up people interested
in a variety of crafts made by hand-
quilting, sewing, crocheting, embroi-
dering or any combination of things.
If you can't join us on Thursday,
-please,come out when you can and
bring a project you're working on, or
come out for help or encouragement,
or just a visit.
We've started the process to get
the brown and white Point of Interest
signs on Alt 27. We'll let you know
when the signs arrive.
Someone recently donated a spin-
ning wheel. Is there a spinner that
could stop in and let us know how it
works? Maybe they could share a
little wool with us and set the wheel
up so we could understand how wool
is-spun into yarm. ....''

When is Candy Dangerous?


hNht-
